In our paper last week we announced that a telegram had been received by Mrs. Kate C. Peery telling of the death of Mrs. A. II. Gibboney, on Thursday morning at her hom^ in Wytheville. At that time we had heard nothing of the particulars. We have since learned the deceased bad been in her usual health, was sitting at the breakfast table and engaged in conversa? tion with members of her family, when Bhe threw her hands to the back of her head and announced that she was suffering ter? rible pain. Physicians were promptly summoned, but could do nothing for her relief, and she died in about one hour. The immediate cause of her death was ap poplexy. On Friday afternoon the re? mains reached Five Oaks, at which place they were met by a number of the rela? tives and friends of the deceased, and taken to the home of Mrs. Kate C. Peery. On Saturday afternoon, at three o'clock, the remains were placed at rest in the Peery cemetery, which was in accordance with the wishes of the deceased. The burial service was read by Rev. I. P. Martin, of the Methodist Church. Though no public notice had been given of the time of the interment a large number of persons were present to pay the last tribute of respect to the departed one. Mrs. Gibboney was fifty three years old, was born and raised in Tazeweli county and was the daughter of H. R. Bogle, de? ceased, who for many years was among the most prominent men in the county. Her mother was Miss Sarah A. Cecil before her marriage, and is still living, being now in her eightieth year. On her maternal side Mrs. Gibboney has a large relation? ship in Tazewell. She was a woman of high culture, splendid intellect and great decision of character, and had many friends who were deeply attached to her.

Newberry preached Sun? day morning at Richlands and at Cedar Bluff at 7 p. m. There was a mistake in the first plan of the Cedar Bluff charge, Miles' Chapel does not come to this circuit,' as was at first un? derstood. It belongs to the Honaker cir? cuit. Mrs. May A. Hawkins, the mother of Mrs. W. W. Newberry, has come from her home in Tennessee to spend the winter with her daughter. There were several persons disappointed here about going to Bull tunnel to help in the work of repair there. Word came here for fifteen or twenty men to be sent down, and when they were ready to start they re? ceived a telegram not to go. James Fields has gone back to bis old job, working in the woolen mills. The examination of the Cedar Bluff High School will be this week. Mr. Clint Asbury, who has been sick ibi the past two months, was in town to? day. Mr. W. N. Adams has already loaded several cars with lumber and will load several more this week.

The parties carried away in exchange for the eggs 13 yds. check cotton, 13 yds. calico, 1 gross matches, 1 lb. soda, 1 lb. starch, 1 lb. Bait and twelve boxes of tacks, and could have taken away more in the gourd if the eggs had brought more. T. H. Johns and family have left our town for Stonega, where they will make their home in the future. Reporter. Nov. 9th, 1897. Killyer's Wonders. On to-night and to-morrow night Bill yer's Wonders will give entertainments at the town hall. This company gave two entertainments at Bluefield, last Saturday and Monday nighls. Ths Telegraph gave the following notice of the first entertain? ment: The performance given by Hillyer's Wonders at the Harris Opera House last night was well attended. It was truly a most mysterious entertainment and one of unusual merit. The floating table, second sight, mind reading and cabinet scene held the audience spell bound. Mr. and Mrs. Hillyer are wonders. The valuable pres? ents given away created much amusement and the fortunate drawers of the presents will long remember this entertainment. Mayor Watkins got the live pig, and now he will be one of the advocates of letting bogs run at large. PILATE'S TALK WITH JESUS. Alleged Translation of the Roman Chiefs Report of the Crnciflxion. LONG SOUGHT DOCOMEKT, A Parchment Found In the Vatican Li? brary at Rome May Be 'the One to Which Reference is Made in History. New York, Nov. 7.?The "Journal and Advertieer" today prints what purports to be a translation of the report of a private interview by Pontius Pilate with our Sav? ior, and the story of his crucifixion. This report is said to have been written by Pi? late, and a manuscript found recently in the Vatican, at Rome, is thought by some to be the identical parchment. If the report be authentic Pilate was clearly deeply troubled and sought to avert ?Le crucifixion. The alltged translation follows: "To Tiberius Caesar?Emperor? "Noble Sovereign, Greeting: The events of the but few days in my province have been of such a character that I thought well to report the details as they have oc? curred, as I should not be surprised if, in course of time, they may change the des? tiny of our nation; for it seems of late that the gods have ceased to be propitious. 1 am almost ready to say, 'Cursed be the day that I succeeded Valerius Gratus in the government of Judea.' "On my arrival at Jerusalem I took possession of the Judgment Hall and or? dered a Eplendid feast to be prepared, to which I invited the Tretrarch of Galilee, with the High Priest and his officers. At the appointed hour no guests appeared. This was an insult offered to my dignity. A few days after the High Priest deigned to pay me a visit- His deportment was grave and deceitful. He pretended that his religion forbade him and his attend? ants to sit down at the table of Romans and to offer up libations with them. I thought it expedient to accept of his ex? cuse, but from that moment I was con? vinced that the conquered had declared themselves the enemies of the conquerors. It seems to me that of all conquered cities Jerusalem is the most difficult to govern! "So turbulent were the people that I lived in momentary dread of an insurrec? tion. To repress it I had but a single cen? turion and a handful of soldiers. I re? quested a reinforcement from the Governor of Syria, who informed me that he had scarcely troops sufficient to defend hiB own province. An insatiate thirst for con? quest?to extend the Empire beyond the means of defending it?I fear will be the means of overthrowing our noble govern? ment. "Among the various rumors that came to my ears there was one that attracted my attention in particular. A young man, it was said, had appeared in Galilee, preaching with a noble unction a new law, in the name of the gods that sent him. At first I was apprehensive that his design was to stir up the people against the Ro? mans, but soon were my fears dispelled. Jesus of Nazareth spoke rather as a friend of the Romans than of the Jews. One day, in passing by the palace of Siloe, where there was a great concourse of people, I observed in the midst of the group a young man, who was leaning against a tree calmly addressing a multitude. I was told that this was Jesus. RESPECT FOR CHRIST. "Unwilling to interrupt him by my presence I continued my walk, but signi? fied to my secretary to join the group and listen. My secretary's name is Manfound Manlius, who related to me the words Je? sus had pronounced at Siloe. Never have I heard in the Portico, nor in the works of the philosophers, anything that can com? pare to the maxims of Jesus. One of the rebellious Jews?so numerous in Jerusalem ?having asked him if it was lawful to give tribute to Caesar, Jesus replied, 'Render unto Caesar the things which belong to Caesar, and unto God the things which are God's.' It was on account of the wisdom of the sayings that I granted so much lib? erty to the Nazarene, for it was in my power to have had him arrested and ex? iled to Pontus; but this would have been contrary to the justice which has always characterized the Romans. This man was neither seditious nor rebellious, and I ex? tended to him my protection, unknown perhaps to himseif. "He was at liberty to act, to speak, to assemble and address the peop'0, to choose disciples, unrestrained by any Pretorian mandate. Should it ever happen?may the gods ever avert the omen?should it ever happen, I say, that Ihe religion of our forefathers be supplanted by the religion of Jesus, it will be to this noble toleration that Rome shall owe her premature obse? quies, while I, miserable wretch, shall be the instrument of what Jews call Providence, and we, destiny. But this unlimited freedom granted Jesus provoked the Jews; not the poor, but the rich and powerful. "New complaints were daily made at Judgment Hall against the insolence of the Jews. I was even informed that some misfortune would befall him?that it would not be the first time that Jerusalem had 6toned those who called themselves proph? ets?and if the Pretorium refused justice, an appeal would be made to Caesar. How? ever, my conduct was approved by the Senate, and I was promised a reinforce? ment after the termination of the Parthian war. Being too week to suppress sedition, I resolved upon adopting a measure that promised to establish the tranquillity of the city without subjecting the Pretorium to the humiliation concessions. AN INTERVIEW WITH CHRIST. "I wrote to Jesus requesting an inter? view with him at the Judgment Hall and he came. " 'Jesus,' said I to him at last, and my tongua faltered, 'Jesus of Nazareth, I have gran'ed yon for the last three years ample ireedom of speech: nor do I regret it. Continued to fourth page.

The condition of the non-combatant population of Cuba, according to recent reports, is truely appalling. Death stalks over the island and heart-rending scenes among the starving and dying "concen trados" are witnessed everywhere. Star? vation is killing them by thousands. Women and children, the weak, the old, are dying like sheep. A correspondent sayB: "I have eeen dead babes lying on the breasts of their unconcious mothers. I have seen babes whose dry, black lips vainly pressed the breasts of their dead mothers, seeking that nourishment that the good God alloted to them." A cor? respondent from the town of San Do? mingo wrote: "A multitude of sick fell dying on garbage in the streets. Here and there they lie until, after having served as ignominious spectacles for some hours, they are collected and hauled away in ox-carts, used for garbage, to the dump? ing grounds." This is the result of Weyler's proclam? ation driving the country people into the towns, and it has destroyed one-half the rural population of western Cuba.

He is in the drug business, a member of the firm of Johnson Bros., of that place; and they handle a great many patent medicines for throat and lung dis? eases. He had all these to choose from,and skilled physicians ready to respond to his call, but selected this remedy for use in his own family at a time when his child's life was in danger, because he knew it to be superior to any other, and famous the country over for its cures of croup.
