STOPPING YOUR PAPER.
IV iil>?rvillc Leader.)
Sometime ?go a cranky aort of indi
vidual came uito this office and stopped
his paper becauae something in it did not
just exactly suit his fancy.
We have frequently met him on the
street since then, and it is amusing to
note the look of surprise on the old
man'g face when he realizes that the
editoris still in existence, regardless of
the fact that we nolongerget his $1.25.
Some day, however, ? it will not be
K?ng,?that old gentleman will turn up
his toes. His heart will be stilled for
ever. There will be a display of pretty
poaiaa and crepe and the neighbors and
friends will follow his lifeless clay out
t.) the Silent City and lay it to rest in
the deep daxk tomb.
An obituary wid be puolished in this
papef Ulling what a kind huaband, lov
in^ f.iiher, good neighbor, beloved citi
r.en, and how progressive and public
aptrited he was?which the recording
angel will overlook for charity's sake ?
and in a ahort while he will be forgotten.
Aa he lies out there in the cold, cold
tfraveyard wrapped in the silence of
death. he will never know the last kind
word spoken of him will be by the ed>
'orof the paper which he so "spatefully"
td.opp.ed.
Have you, gentle reader, everpaused
a moment to think that your editor?
whoever he may be?will some day
write your obituary?

SEASON OF HURRICANES.
The Hydrographic office at Washing
ton sent out warnings of the tropical
atorms that usually prevail during
this parl of the year. Thehe storma,
cyclonic in form, usually sUrt in
either the C.u.t* of Mexico or the
Carribean Sea., moving in a norlh
easterly direction, striking the At
lantic coast any where from Key West
to Norfolk, thence moving north
easterly with inereasing velocity, the
wind sometimea attaining 100 miles an
hour. In the period from 1878 to 1907
the September storms have numbered
37, and 39 for October, all of a very de
structive character. Coastwise vessels
are in many cases wrecked, and navi
gation is dangerous for all sorts of
crafts, as the stoutest ship is well nigh
helpless in such hurricanes.

MRS. GRESHAM EXPLAINS.
El>ITOR VlROINIA ClTlZEN:
The recent biographical sketrh of the
Greshams, published in the ClTlZKN.
did not aay that Dr. Philip Gresham
was a surgeon in the U. S. Army at the
time of his death, but was simply a
quotation from a letter written by his
father-in-law Hon. W. D. Gresham,
of King & Queen, which said: "Phil?
ip had just received an appointment aa
surgeon in the U. S. Army when death
cutshort his brilliant prospects." This
letter was written by Hon. Wm. D.
Grtsham to his cousin, S. P. Gresham,
of Lancaster, alluded pathetically to
his son-in-law, who was the son of Rev.
Edward Gresham, of King & Queen.
The letter written at the time of the
young man's death is still in our pos
session and will be looked up as soon as
practicable. Such a lutter does not
admit of any halluoination on the part
of Mr. W. D. Gresham. It is possible
that the War Department could furniah
a quietus to the momentous question;
or probably the private papers of the
dead would reveal that auch an appoint?
ment had been received.
Respectfully,
Mary Stuart Gresham.

NORTH POLE CONQUEST.
L'ndenlably Tankee grlt hasconquer
ed the froz?n oortb, and there haa been
created a coinckience such as the world
will never aee again.
Two Americans have planted the Hag
of their country in the land of ice,
which man has sought to penetrate for
four centuries. and each, ignorant of
the other's conquest, has flashed within
a period of five days a laconic message
of success to the waiting world.
Cook in his first roessage to his
countrymen was brief; Peary was even
briefer, but speXrific. "Stara and
Stripes nailed to the North Pole," he
said. That was all, but never before
have so few words conveyed to a people
a greater meaning or a greater patriot
ic satisfaction. There was no qualiii.
cation; it left no doubt. U announced
unequivocally that he, had reached the
top of the world.
Thus two flags, with the Stars and
Stripes of the United States, are float
ing in the ice packs, proving the cour
age of intrepid Americans.
We could all wish that Perry had not
later supplemented his message with
ones eharging that Cook had not suc
ceeded, that he had handed us a "gold
brick,"
