Suturdny night, Sunday morning

and to the point. 1 wish some of the
late speakers in the campaign had
been there and heard her. They
surely would have prepared different
kiud of speeches for the next cam
paign, especially thechurch members.
The Virginia baud rendered some fine
music, for which the lady thanked
them. She organized a W. C. T. U.

for the uplifting of young men and
women. They will hold their first

person for not voting wfth a party
which is running 2G0.000 saloons to-
day in the United States and who
got up the infernal system in 1862 of
taking a revenue of the appetite of
the men and women of the United
Sates. We believe he chose wisely
between the two old parties; help the
men that needed help is the golden
rule.
The people of Virginia were shock
ed last Wednesday when the mail

a trcuty would have to bo ratified by

therefore, almost nu impossibility for

has been applied us a test to a former
onviet named Miller, a negro who
confessed to lhe iinirder of Gngie
Uour)tiiii and his colored body serv
ant. Miller claimed thut lie waa
lured by a white man to kill Hour
iiiin. His confession has been gen
erally regarded as a pure fabrication
und he was put under hypnotic iullu-
nee in order to prove or disprove hia
strange story.
Miller in his trance said he did not
fire the idiots that killed ltoiiriiin,
but that he heard them and kuew
who fired them, lie was put Into a
buggy with two olllcers and made to
go through what he alleges to liave
been in connection with the trageily.
Still In a trance he drove into the
country and pointed out the exact
locality where he claims the ahoot
iiiL' occurred. Miller described mi
nutely four men who, according to his
story, murdered 15ouruln. Miller is
Illiterate, being aide neither to reail
or write. His story Is not believed
to lie true in spite of its appurcut
hypnotic confirmation.
