Geologic Atlas.
The United States government is making
a geologic map of the United States. It is
issued in the form of an atla?, the parts of
which are called folios. Each folio consists
of a topographic base map and geologic
maps of a small area of counlry, together
with explanatory and desctfptr?t texts.
We have received from the Interior
Department.at Washington,the Pocahontas
Folio. The sheet is named from the town
of Pocahontas, in Tazewell county, the
place at which the first developenent of the
Flat Top coal f eld was begun and from
which the celebrated seam of coal takes its
name. The territory embraced in the
Pocahontas Folio or sheet is about equally
divided oetween the Slates of Virginia and
West Virginia, includijg in Virginia parts
of the counties of Tazewell, Smyth, Wythe,
and Bland.and in West Virginia portions
of the counties of McDowell, Mercer and
Wyoming. The Pocahontas Folio is a
very interesting and instructive sheet and
we feel greatly indebted to the Interior
Department for presenting us with it.

Quite a lot ofgripp in the community,

seriously ill.
The past week has been the coldest snap
of the season, and farmers say it is the
finest time to feed their cattle, because
they eat all they can get.
Fioyd Ascue still hauls logs, if the
weather is bad. He Bays there is no mud
to bother him.
We wonder if Jim Howard, of Rosedale,
found his man, and we know the gentle?
man found bis "party."
Miss Oakley Ferrill received a telegram
that her cousin, at Bluefield, was dying,
and left for that place on Saturday.
We hear that there is "a change" to
take place at Steelesburg soon. Quite
likely more than one. A.
Termination of a Noted Trial.
Maj. R. R. Henry returned from Welch,
W. Va., on Tuesday, where he bad been
for several days.aesociated with Judge R.C.
McCIaugherty, of Princeton, W. Va., in
defending A. D. Beavers, who was indict?
ed for being one of the leaders of the mob
that lynched Alex. Jones on the 27th of
January, 1890. It will be remembered
that Jones was on a passenger train on the
Elkhorn division and became ansry with
the conductor of the train. The coach
was filled with passengers and Jones pulled
a pistol and commenced shooting at the
conductor. He shot wildly and, killed
Mr. Wm. Strother, postmaster at Elk
horn, who was a passenger on the train,
and also wounded the conductor. Jones
was arrested, taken to Welch and confined
in jail. The Judge of the county feared
he would be lynched and directed the
Sheriff of the county to take the prisoner
to Huntington for safe keeping. In com?
pliance with the order the sheriff took
Jones to Hemphill, a flag station two
miles below Welch, with the intention of
flagging a train and getting the prisoner
on board. When this became known at
Welch, a number of its citizens boarded
the west-bound train, and when the sher?
iff flagged it down they took Jones from
him, conveyed him to a spot near by and
shot him to death.
A short time ago Messrs. A. D. Beavers
and Geo. French Strother, the latter a
brother of the young man who was killed,
were indicted for being active participants
in the band of lynchers. The trial of Mr.
Beavers was commenced last week, occu?
pied three days and was concluded on
Monday. The jury after being out about
fifteen minutes returned a verdict of "not
guilty." The accused was ably defended
by Maj. Henry and Judge McCIaugherty.
Mr. Strother, we suppose, will be tried at
the next term of the court, and, no doubt,
will be easily acquitted of the charge.

MR. JESSE F. WHITE IN FLORIDA.
He Has a Dncking.
Several weeks ago Mr. Jesse F. White,
one of the proprietors of the Central Hotel
at this place, went to Florida. He,is en?
joying the climate and fishing down there,
but came very near meeting with a serious
accident. Iif a letter of the 29th inst.
written from Umatilla, Ida., to his nephew
Mr. W. B. F. White, he wrote as follows-.
"I created quite an excitement in town
yesterday. I went out fishing alone in a
boat, made a misstep and went dcerchung
ovrlKiard where the water was 20 feet
deep. There was a lot of women nearby
washing, who began screaming and sent
runners to town, and in a few minute? the
whole population, men, women and chil?
dren were on the bank advising me what
to do. Finally, after about half an hour's
kicking and paddling around, I managed
to get bold of a snag and pulled myself up
into the boat. The only dnmage sustained
was getting my greenbacks and a few
papers a little wet, but not enough to hurt.
* * * The weather is fine and lam enjoying
myself hugely. Tell Lewis Brittnin 1 think
of him every time that I pull in a 20 inch
bass or a 30 inch pike, of which I have
caught several. I think I will stay here
until March 1st I had tomatoes and
strawberries for dinner, picked today."
We congratulate Mr. White on his escape
from a watery grave, and hope he will con?
tinue to enjoy the fishing and fresh fruits
and vegetables of Florida, and come home
very much improved in health.
Closing Exercises of Tazewell High School.
On last Friday .night the closing exer?
cises of Tazewell High School, for the pub?
lic school term, were held in the Town
Hall. A large crowd of the friends and
patrons of the school was present, and ex?
hibited great interest in the exercises.
The entcrbiinmcnt was quite an interest?
ing one, and all the boys and girle, young
ladies and gentlemen who participated,
did their parts well. Four choruses were
sung by Classes Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4, re?
spectively. The songs were pretty and well
sung. Miss Bessie Cooley delivered the
salutatory in very pleasing style. The re?
citation of "Little Bessie," by Miss Jen?
nie lx>wder, "Charleston Rescue," by
Miss Lula Doak, "Horatio at the Bridge,''
by Charles Steele, "The J.*gend of the
Bregenz," by Miss Julia Pendleton and
the "Benedictiou," by Miss Nannie Leslie,
were all excellent. Mr. Joseph Litz made
a good cration and Messrs. Uutton Ball
and John O'Keefle, made nice declama?
tions. The drill of the "Little Patriots,"
one of the most pleasing numbers of
the programme, was beautiful and the lit?
tle girls who participated looked as sweet
as possible. The walking tableau, "A
Chip Out of the Old Block," was very
cute, and clccited much applause, while
the chorus, "Coming Thro' the Rye," by
a class of bright little girls, dressed in
Highland costume, was so pretty aa to
provoke an encore. A very interesting
debate took place upon the important
question--"Resolved that the United
Slates government should pass a woman
suffrage law." The affirmative was rep?
resented by Miss Maggie Peery and Mr.
R. G. Baylor, and the negative by Miss
Lena Alexander and .Mr. Frank D. Kitts.
Both sides were ably represented, but the
committee decided the question in favor
of the negative.
A very nice valedictory address was de?
livered by Mr. Austin Belew, and the ex?
ercises were dosed with remarks by Pro
lessors Beahm and Kilby, Prof. Beahm
expressed great regard for the people of
Tazewell and said he parted with them
with great regret, lie showed much inter?
est and kind feeling for the pupils who
bad attended the school the past session.
Misses Hardy, Bowen, Baily and Alice
Alexander and Prof. Beahm certainly de?
serve credit for the excellent entertain?
ment which they furnished with their
pupils.
Mrs. K. Davis, of Toustalls Station, Va.,
writes: "1 suffered greatly for two months
with pain in "my back, and was annoyed
wilh headache and neuralgia; in fact, I
thought I would never get well. I saw

Notice to Our Subscribers.
My control of The Republican dates
back to August 20th, 1S9G. When I
bought the paper Mr. Boone furnished
me with the names of some subscribers
who had paid their subscriptions to a date
later than August 20th, 1896. He may
have failed to name some who had paid in
advance. I wish every subscriber who
has paid in advance would come to the
office and let me know how their account
stands. This would be a great accommo
dation to Mr. Boone as well as myself.

PERSONAL NOTES.
Ouida never shakes hands. She do
dares it to be the most vulgar form of
salutation.
Jules Verne is one of the most laborious
authors, and a popular one, too. But,
considering the fashion in which his books
have gone round the reading world, he
has had but a small return. He has never
made more than $4000 a year in his life.
A French writer, Edouard Toulouse, has j
examined Zola's mental peculiarities am
has discovered a peculiar weakness of I
memory. He could not recognize well
known citations from Molicre, iBalzac,
Hugo and George Sand, and in some cases
even failed to remember his own early
writings when passages from them were
read to him.
Still another candidate for the honor of |
having discovered a "(xwitive cure"' for
consumption has arisen in the person of I
Professor Maragliano, of Genoa, Italy. He
limits the curative powers of hisnewserum |
remedy, however, to the first stages of the
disease. Experiments which are being car?
ried on with the serum at St. Luke's Hos?
pital, in New York, would seem to reveal,
according to the hospital staff, an increase
in a patient's power of resistance. As
treatment must be continued for one year
in order to secure a definite verdict trpon
his anti-tuberculin, it would be foolish to
build up any hopes thus early on the |
strength of a slight preliminary rally of the |
treated consumptives. Hope grows, how?
ever, in spite of the many failures since
the Koch lymph fiasco, that a tuberculosis
serum cure may yet be discovered.?Ex?
