Hi HORRIBLE TRAGEDY AT RADFORD A KotnnncA in Itrui 1,11V- iin lloiul C'ul oir Two Conflicting Stories Wim! ItecMiUMof Ilm Y/ommi in Iii? CnNt!- u ii<l Leap from a Train. Two conflicting stories caute from Radford about the accident of Sunday tlit'ii-, ami they arc given lor what ihey are worth. Thomas L. McMahon jumped from 'lie East bound train while it was in motion <>n Sunday afternoon near Radford, turued a couple of summer? saults, and Ml with hi.- head and arm under tin- ivuceis ui the cars. Both were severed from the body and th blood gushed outcoverlng the rails. An account of the accident given by a passenger of the train is t<? the ef feet that the gentleman, Mr. Thomas 1, McMahou by name, bad an en gageiuent to meet a I idy at Uadford and el?>pe with her. Tbo lady came from further up the line, and he was to join her ai the station. .lust U fore 1 he train pulled into the depot -he secreted herself, thinking thai she was being shallowed, ami when Mr. McMahon hoarded the train and passed through the car she was not t I -e found. In the meantime the train hud started and McMahon, not finding the woman, attempted to leave it. The gradeal this point descends rapidly and the train was making about twen ty mil> s an hour when the man jump? ed, was warned by tbeconductor not to do SO, hut diil not heed. The passenger, win, brought the in? formation, said that the facts as given were learned from letters found on the de ad man's person. The other story is to the effect that Mr. McMahon hud hoarded the train to hid Ids wifj good bye, and* during an affectionate leave-taking the train started. The gentleman hurriedly kissed hi- wife ami left the coach. In attempting to jump from the plat? form steps he was by some means jerked under the train, the wheels passing over Iii?? neck and severing hi head from the body. The train was stopped and the body and head of the unfortunate m -n taken from the track. The dis? tress and agony of the p"or wife, who a lew seconds before had imprinted a loving ki>- upon her husband's lips, i. said to have been truly pitiable Little, indeed, did either think it would be their last kiss, or that tin wife was so EOOn to look Upon the mangled corpse of her husband.

II In I he Smm "The Norfolk and Western railroad has been built up from a second class property to one of the finest railroad properties in America. As we remark? ed the other day. it has done much for the development of Virginia. It has helped Norfolk. It has built the city Of Roanoke. It has been ins? trumental in the founding of many smaller towns, and it has fairly pour? ed money into enterprises that pre-1 Rented favorable prospects.*'?Rich? mond State. Ml<?otillK Match. Messrs. W. Tell Mitchell and Eu? gene Taylor, of Campbell county, will shoot for the championship of the State at the Driving Park at 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon. The match will he at one hundred live pigeons, and no doubt will be very interesting, as both gentlemen are] fine shots. Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Taylor have each won one match and this will be the decisive contest. Oklahoma is not, only aTerritory but it has a government, a Governor" and | a complete set of Territorial officers. If the inhabitants of Oklahoma con? tinue to jump each other's claims and otherwise deport themselves in a disorderly manner, it will be the fault of Governor Steele and his subordi? nates. ABOUT THE HOTELS. Tho fattest man in Virginia is Drum? mer Mattcoc. He has a double chin and Iiis dormer window projects just I about two feet beyond that of other men. He is a jolly good fellow, and, perhaps, is acquainted with mere peo? ple in this State and in North Caro? lina than is any other man. Mr. Mat tox was in Ronnoke yesterday and ate dinner at Marshall < .'aCe with Manager Heek ner. of the opera house They are n well matched pair, two of a kind, and when they come together you will sec two of the best men in tin-coun? try. "I'm the most persecuted ol men,'* said Mr. Matrox laughingly "Myself and .Judge Hilton, of New York, are forever being jumped on by the newspapers, but what do we care. If the}' can stand it, so can we." Editor liawes.of MieBrainwell Mon itor, was in the city yesterday in the interest of his paper. He is an ener? getic young fellow witli a dark mous? tache and was at oiie time the City Editor of the Shamokin Herald, one of the brightest little afternoon papes in Pennsylvania. His father is a resi dent ol lioanoke and is known as one of th? most eminent geologists of the South. He knows every loot of th country around the city and every vein <>f ore running through the countrv. He is conuected with the West Bud furnace, and his room in the Galo building is littered with iron ore Iroiu every section of the. country. Young Mr. Hawes is sure to wake Hie .Monitor bright and brilliant, and it will do in in-! i to forward the pro gross of the coal country. Mr. ('? W. Callahan, of Xewbery Mills, is again in town. Be has u fund of reininiseonses about old l?^ Lick and the country surrounding it ".Just think one instant." he sai'l to a reporter yesterday, "of t he immense strides the town haw made. Now. take that section of the city lying to the west. My grandfather knew when if was sold for an old Hint lock musket, worth, perhaps, $5. Now it is worth $200,000 if it is worth a cent. I tell you, the whole story of the town reads like a romance of the olden times. Captain William H. Pry was in the city yesterday. He was at one time the deputy United State- collector for the Roanoke district under President ?llevelund, but upon the advent of tin Harrison reign,was promptly relieved from duty. Captain Fry Is a gentle? man with an iron gray moustache and chin whiskers and wears a light snit of clothes. He tells a good story and reads the Times. * Arnold Pierce has been in town and tin-results of his visit will, in a f>-w days or weeks, be known in the col? umns ot tie- New York Herald. For Mr Pierce is the correspondent of that paper, and has been here among us with the intention of sending to bis paper a truthful account of the "boom " towns of the South. James Cordon Bennett, in his home in the other side of the Atlantic, heard of the wonderful progress the South has been making, and he cabled to his re? presentative in New York to si nd a in.in South immediately to search out the truth. He is here and there can be little doubt but what hi.- letters will be of the greatest interest. The HotltbN future. Something s< ?'1nrs to have come over , the spirit ol the Commercial Gazette 'since Mr. Halstcad left it. In an edi? torial of recent date it said: The old saying, "Go West, young man. and grow up with the country." is dj iitx rapidly out of existence, and the new phrase, "Go South." is be? coming more and more popular each day. For some years it has been thought, and lately it has been dem? onstrated, that the future great wealth of the country is to be found in the Southern States. Southeastern Kentucky. Tennessee, Georgia, Ala? bama and Virginia. Towns and cities are springing up as if touched by a magic hand. Euormous finds of coal, iron, timber and marble have opened up a new era in the wealth and pros perity of that section ot the country, and American and Fugiish capital a e now seeking investments in the South in preference to the West. It is the t ruth of this statement that enables the South to defy the machi? nations of tho Republicans. The South is destined to grow very rich and very populous in the next quarter of a century, and the present political conditions wilt disappear with the consumption of that happy state of affairs. Let us look well to our material prosperity, for with such prosperity we can safely defy our political enemies.?Birmingham Age Herald. A Concert at Greene Memorial.

A Plumber Nearly Loses His Life nl V. K. Werts'?. Mr. George Blanton, an employe of L. P. Burks, th- Second street plum? ber, came near losing his life yester? day by gas suffocation. A meter in the store of Mr. Chris Wert/., on Sec? ond street, got out of order about 11 o'clock, and Mr. Blanton went over to fix it, and as the meter was under the flooring it was necessary for him to lay down on his back and reach it. He was endeavoring to change meters, ami as there was no shut Off on the street, so soon as he took the cap oil the gas pipe, the gas poured out and soon tilled the small space in which he was. Before he could get tin- cap in place again he was completely overcome by the gas. His helper waited a few moments outside ami not bearing him coming our, and as the odor of the gas was strong, rightly guessed what the trouble was ana quickly rescued him from the perilous position. After staying in the fresh air a few moments he was revived and went back to finish the job, but was again overcome and had to betaken out the second time. It seems that this would have taugbl ; the man a lesson, but after resting! awhile he went back the third time.! worked hard for about live minutes! and had nearly completed the task, but once more he succumbed. A doc- j tor was quickly summoned, ami it j seemed as If the man had but a few moments to live. As Mr. Wertz put it. '"lie was next door to Wool wine's.*' Restoratives were applied, and after hard work he began to show signs of returning life. II?? was taken home and while much better, is still no: out of danger. This should be a lesson. 1'ersevcranee is a good thing, but when it leads a man to such foolhardy attempts, a little less of ir would be better.
