Instead of giving the ordinary clasp, he keeps his hand closed, as if in the act of holding on to some? thing. If, according to the typical Oriental idea, candidates over there ask questions instead of making speeches, we can think of nobody more likely to win the ('hinein- Presidency than our old friend W-Ting-Pang. Nor is the President's plan to kill the trusts with kindness entirely new. It has been tried before, and they didn't die worth a cent. Assessments Mineral Lands In Virginia. Richmond, Yu., Nov. C? Mineral land assessments have increased in the last three years from $'.?,000,000 to more than $32,000,000 for the year 1011. These tlguros are contained on the hooks of the State Corpora? tion Commission, under the di? rection of which body the as sesBinents on this class of prop? erty is now being made. The State now receives something like $100,000 a year in taxes, but the counties receive a great deal more, the rate being high? er than the State rate. Repeat? ed efforth have been made by the owners of those valuable mineral Innds to avoid paying a fair and reasonable amount of taxes for the support of the government, but the efforts have proven futile except in rare instances the rates have been advanced.

County Election. Tho olectiou in Wise County held on yestorduy for the pur? pose of choosing officers for the county for tho noxt four years passed off quietly and so fnr as wo wero ?ble to ascertain there was no trouble of any kind at any of the voting precincts. The ballott was a long one and the voting wob necessarily slow, nml ut some of the pre? cincts the count was not com? pleted until late last night. It is impossible at the time of go? ing to press to give an accurate report of the result, l?nt it is evident from the returns re? ceived that the following coun? ty officers are elected: \V. H. Hamilton, republican candidate for clerk, is elected by a majority of about 11. R. V. ,Wohlford, republican candidate for treasurer, is elec? ted by a very small majority. 1. .1. Bovorlev, independent candidate for sheriff, is elected by a majority of about 10. W. W. (1. DotSOn, independ? ent candidate for common? wealth attorney, is elected by a majority of about 100. K. .1. Proscott, of this place, was elected a member of the board of supervisors from the Richmond district by a major? ity of 71. In tho race between Mr. Ohalklcy, of this (dace, and Mr. Ooiiey, of Olintwood, for tho House of Dolegates, which in? cluded Wise and Pickonson counties, the indications are that Mr. Chulkley has won by a good majority. Ho carried Wise county by a majority of about 200, We were unable to get the returns from Dickenson county, but it will be impossible for Mr. Colloy to overcome in that county the large majority Mr. I'balk ley received in Wine county. In the Senatorial Contest, which included the counties of Wise, LOO and Scott, the can? didates were John H. CalrOlt, of this place, the republican nominao, and P.zra T. Carter, of Gate City, the democratic standard bearer, the indications are that Mr. Catron has carried the district by a majority of several hundred. Ho carried Wise county by a majority ot about 25, At nine o'clock this morning they were not through counting the votes in LoO coun? ty, but it is thought he has car? ried that county by about 300, li is also reported that ho has carried Scott county by a majority of about 175; Mis. Rltoads Entertains. Mrs. lt. K. Rhoada entertain? ed very charmingly at bridge Friday afternoon complimon tary to her friend, Mrs. H. A. Ramsey, of Appaluohia. Those invited to meet Mrs. Ramsey and make the two tables at bridge wore: Mrs. l'ettit, Mrs. Roodcr, Mrs. Say ers, Mrs. Parks, Miss Margaret Bullitt, Mrs. Nash. Delightful refreshments con? sisting of chicken salad, pimen? to, sandwiches, potato chips, olives, hot chocolate, ice cream and cake were served by the hostess at the conclusion of the games. Mrs. Knmscy and her little daughter, Francos, returned to Appaiaohia Friday night, hav? ing spent two days very pleas? antly with Mrs Rhoads, Stewart?Upchurch. On last Wednesday night at 7:80 o'clock, Miss Callie May Stewart became the bride of Mr. Dwen F, Upchurch, Rov. J. B. Craft officiating. The wedding was of much interest, owing to the popu larity of the bride and groom. The ceremony took place at the homo of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. O. K. Stewart, near Kennedy's store. About 40 friends of this young couple attended tho ceremony, among them being several town peoplo. After the ceremony supper was served to all prosent and they expressed themselves as having had a tine time. It seems that Mr. Craft, however, enjoyed himself hotter than anyone. This young couple will mnko their future home hero and their many friends wish them a happy married life together. CORNER STONE LAYING.

The masculine contingent of the regular boarders at the Motel Touraino were responsible for a very pleasant Hollow e'en evening, the ladies of this pop? ular hostelry being compliraent plimentcd by a nance in the ?lining room of the hotel. Red dominus and masks ef? fectually concealed the real identity of tho ladies, while the gentlemen were equally mysterious in black dominoes and masks. Music was furnished by local talent and refreshments were served as it matter of course. A striking figure among the dancers was young I ?ick Tor bort, who, in a hulT costume with blue facings, a cocked hat and flaxen wig, was a dashing cavalier of tlie days When King Ueorge ruled Vir? ginia. Miss l'earl Mann, who left Saturday for Washington, 1?. C, for a motith with Mrs. Holderby. was the only young lady outside the hotel who was honored by an invitation to the affair at the Touralne, which will always remain a pleasant memory to all of those present. The Ureilcst ol Dog DctCCllYM. That truth is stranger than] fiction has been strikingly dorn 1 onstrated by "Sheha's Hob," the great dog detective of the New York Police Department, who has established .a wonder? ful record of catching over one hundred thieves in two year's time; tracked and returned to their parents at least fifteen lost children, disclosed the hiding place of a murderer, &C.
