The skin, of snow which fell on Sunday
morning did not arrive 'on schedule time
for Christmas, but it got here in time to
make Sunday one of !the most disagreea?
ble days under foot for many a month.
Sunday's papers offer the [usual quota
ot Christmas fires and accidents from
fireworks. We hnvo noted no fatalities,
but many mannings for life. Boanoke
ought to have a pretty clean record [for
this Christmas on this score.
Chicago would seem to be (ire-fated.
Despite the fact that she has the best fire
department in the West, tinconnd again
she has lost whole blocks of her most
costly buildings. The Ores of last week
were particularly disastrous, and had the
Coliseum been more crowded than it was
no doubt we should have had ?i repetition
of the holocaust witnessed not long since
at tho chnrity bazaar in Paris.
Our Anglo-Americans seem to have
been spending a gay Christmas in Eng
land. Of course, following English cus?
toms, everything wns out of town dnriug
the Christmas season,and no doubt many
of our illustrious American money-bags,
?who had ?he privilege of entertaining
second-rate titles nt their^country house
parties, have felt ?.heir bosoms swell with
pride and realized that their expectaCon
has not been without its compensations.
The snobbery of mnny of our newly-rich
Americans, who have found their own
country too circumscribed for their vault?
ing ambitions is intensely disgusting to
the average American citizen. Once bit

The will of the late Mr. Pullman, by
which he deprived his two sons of an op?
portunity for a life of ease and luxury,
such as they might naturally have ex?
pected to lead, has been much approved
of by practical-minded people throughout
the country. One thing Mr. Pullman
did not take into account was mother
love. Mrs. Pullman has claimed her
dowry in her husbands estate, which will
afford her a much larg?r Income than
was anticipated in the provisions of the
will, and as there is no law to debar her
from leaving her personalty to her sons
it will enable these young men to enter
life with far from discouraging pros?
pects. Mr. Pjllman's remedy to provide
against a life of idleness for his sons was
very heroic, but to have met completer
success he should have first known that
his wile was in sympathy with him.
The death last week in London of Lady
Mlilais, relict of the great artist, will stir
x afresh through tho papers one of the
greatest domestic anomalies on record.
Lady Millaia was the wife of Buskins,
the former art critic. When Millais, who
was a pupil of his, fell'in love with his
wife, not only did Buskins aid and abet
her in securing a divorce,though passion?
ately fond of her himself, but was present
at the ceremony when she married .Mli?
lais, and aftei wards remained a staunch
friend of each. It is just, possible that
this highly sensational romance furnished
Thomas Hardy the conception of his
novel, ??Ju.le, the Obscure," a story
whose teachings, if followed out, would
strike the death blow to all domestic hap?
piness and overthrow our whole social
systeir. One might conceive the exist?
ence of Bitch a state of affairs "among
characters such at Hardy has" portnyed,
but in the case of Ituskiu and Millais it
is inconceivable. Both were men of cul?
ture and social eminence; both possessed
the sensitive and highly strung natures
belonging to men of artistic; tempera?
ment, and that friendly relation could
have been sustained between them, alter
the wrecking of tho Buskin home, pre?
sents a study for social economists that
has no parallel. Self abnegation could
go no further than carried out by Bus?
kin, who alwaysj-tefendid his course on
the ground of bis wife's happiness .

of this number consists of the reports of
the ditferent schools of Suggestive Ther?
apeutics. There are now several of these
schools established in America in charge
of physicians, and conducted for the pur?
pose of determining the value of the mind
as a curative ageut in disease. In order
to personallr'superintend th* opening of
ono of these establishments in each of the
cities selected, Suyder flower, the editor
of the Journal of Medical Hypnotism,
will carry out the plan of printing the
Journal each month at the city visited,

A'cClure's MagazineTor January yields
perhaps Its first attraction in its pictures.
As an example of general. excellence in
magazine illustrations it is, indeed, an
extraordinary number. Every picture
but o.ie?a beautiful reproduction of
Burne Jones' painting "Yespertina
Quies"?has relation to the reading mut?
ier?is sirictly illustrative, in other
words: but such Is the intrinsic interest
of them and the vividness of their execu?
tion, cue deiives from simple running
through the number and looking at them
that mental satisfaction which is usually
to be had only frcm reading. They are,
in other words, each and all, a good story
in themselves. But then this is what the
pictures naturally would be in MClure's,
which lives to the rule of never falling,
whatever else happens, to tell a good
story. In this particular number the
good story is told also iu most of the arti?
cles.? not merely in those which are sto?
ries by confession, hut in the others as
well. For example, Mr. Hamblen's ac?
count of his own personal experience as a
railroad briiKcman, with its almost daily
episodes of daring and disaster, is as ab
sorbing'as any of tbe^tlction. No less is
true of Mr. Dana's chapter of recoltect'ona
of life in the trenches at Vicksburg, with
its close, living view of Grant, Sheriran
and the other generals there. Cy War
I man's account of his sojourn at Karlsbad
is a bit of humorous, attractive de-crip-!
: lion'; Robert Burr's character sketch of
Murk Twain, from his own intimate'ac?
quaintance, offers a distinctly new view
? oi the great bumortet; and Norman Bap
good's study of Bootet de Monvel, with
j the fine reproductions of De Monvel's
! work, gives one an excellent idea of the
leading artist of .'our time in tho por
trayr 1 ot children. The llction of the
ininiher consists of the second instalment
of Anthony Hope's New Zenda novel and
several good short stories.
ANOTHER IDOL SHATTERED.
"Thnt man is fearfully and wonder?

seems bent upon finding cut with just
how little of his anatomy ho can get

vermiform appendix, it has become quite
the thing to get riil of It.
It remained, however, for Dr. Karl
Sehlatter to discover that the entire
stomach may be removed and no Incon?
venience follow. This may well * be
called the triumph uf surgery,Jjnnd n* the
patient upon whom the operation was
performed is now up and about her work,
in excellent health, the experiment may
be considered n success. Let the chronic

much happiness in store for him.

The placng of its products in tho Bts
ton market by the Colorado cotton mills
is the beginning of the end. ,H0 far as the
manufactuie of cotton in New Kugb ml is
concerned. Tho claim of the Northern
mills that the advantages of the Booth
over then: is only temporary is but the
idle talk of tlioiu who feel tho'r foothold
Incoming each day less secure. An edi?
torial on this subject iu Sunday's Dis
ns the need or tho South. Once let It he
seen that the South is not limited to tho
production of one ov two kinds of cotton
studs, nnd'that skilled .labor can always
command good wages In the varied cot?
ton manufactures, and there will be no
scarcity of it.
The announcemont'of 'Sunday's Times
of a possible visit cf Norttorn] men to
Roanoke for the "purpose of examining
into the advantages ofFered by our city for
a cotton mill should arouse tho Interest
of every business man in the city.
Lynchburg's'jnill* have just declared u 4

coutrast with'tho present showing of the
Northern ni'lls. Lynchburg offers no nat?

TWENTY YEAR PLAN.
Pensioners residing in Indianapolis ore
acting up to the old adage "of a bird in
tho hand being wo-th two in the bush." |
A petition tojOonuress is being veiv goner- j
ally signed, 'asking that every *}kuau and !
woman on the rolls be paid at once the
amount that will be p?ld them in iustal- ;
i ments'jduring the next twenty years and.
bavlng"Jrecelved this.to surrender all fur- '
ther claims upon tho government. This
'"tweuty year" plan, were it feasible, has
one or two features about It that are wor?
thy of consideration.
Taking the pension list of the war of
1812 as an example, there is no telling
I how long our government will be bur?
dened with its present pension claimants.
Thirty-two years according to the ordi?
nary expectancy of life *ould seem sufli
ciently long iu wh'ch to have dropped th*
I greatei majority of claimants fioni the
rolls, but at the remarkably slow rates
i at which such claim nits are disappear: tig
from the liste, the date at which it will
cease to exist bailies all calculation. The
twenty year plan affords at least tho ad?
vantage of definiteuess in closing it out.
Again, with the present system, it is
agreed by all that the goverumeut is be?
ing annually mulcted out of thousands
upon thousands of dollars through fraud?
ulent claims. Should a specified time
within which to settle all claims be fixed
upon it wculd olTer less opportunity for
the frauds that now exist and prevent
their increase in the future.
Another argument that is used by the
signer! of the petition themselves is that
by adopting such a plan the government
could at once abolish the pension depart?
ment, thus saving the rrnuing expenses
of one of its costliest branches. Where
the money is to come from to pay in a
lump such a sum as would be required Is
not suggested. And even were the money
at hand with which to make the f-tUle?
nient it Is doubtful if a year from the
adoption of the plan would be long enough
in which to make a finality of pension

FIFTY YEARS AFLAME.
A No,nun Coal Mine Thnt Him Bern
lturnlns Half ? Century.
There is a coal mine In Scotland, located
between tho railway stations of Dailly and
Kllkorran, that has bcon burning continu?
ously for 50 years.
In the working of this mino, which
produced a bard and dirty coal, the seam
dipped suddenly, and tho shaft communi?
cating with the lower works was at a dis
tanco from the one which led up to tho
surface of the ground. A second engine
became necessary, and It was placed at tho j
head of the lower shaft. Half a century
ago it had to be run by steam generated
on the spot, instead of by electricity gen?
erated elsewhere, as would bo done now,
and one day the coal in the neighborhood
of tho machinery, having become qultu
dry and inflammable, caught lire.
The engine man tried to put It out, but
failed, and signaled to be brought to t he
surface, Jho other minors having knocked
off work for the day. Ton minutes after
ho was on terra flrma the Uro bad made
such headway that the llair.es were rear?
ing up the shaft and rising to a height, of
50 feet iu the air. it was, of course, im?
possible to put ii out, and in time tin- fire
gradually grow less, but it remained burn?
ing, aud great fears w en- entertained lest
it should communicate with other pits and
even wreck the whole mining industry
of tin: neighborhood.
An engineer who was sent for from
London to ende... or tu put out tho tin?
boivl hoi, a in the neighborhood of the pit
in order to pump in a ga..- which was
Inimical to 1 he (ire. This scheme, how
over, was a failure, and it was found
that tho flro was extending, for tho trap
dike, which had been cut in order to get
into closer proximity to the fire, opened
the way to the seam beyond, and it is this
scnin which has been burning ever since.
Thousands of pounds were spcill 111 the
endeavor to quench the Uro and how many
thousand pounds' worth of coal have been
used ii would bo impossible to say.

AN AFRICAN LEGEND.
A? lndustrlou? r.ibb:
mum :? hi.th tho oyster
The Story of How tho Monkey Camo io
Negro legends and interpretations of
Scripture are often extremely ingenuous
and even poetical, and it frequently hap?
pens thnt when the makers of traditions
anil folklore happen to have African blood
in their veins they rely entirely upon their
inspirations ami imaginations. It is in
this wise that their account, of tho creation
of the monkey was constructed. This
story runs ns follows:
After Ccd bail made man, the devil re?
garded this new creation with a great deal
of interest ami admiration and was filled
with an ambition to do something of that
kind himself. He therefore studied the
form and features of tho human being
which bad been recently placed upon tho
earth, and sot to work with great, earnest?
ness to make a Jiving creature which
should, as nearly as possible, resemble a
man. but he did not try to make bis work
quite as large as bis model, wisely think?
ing lie would I Hitter begin with something
on a smaller scale. The result of his la?
bors was the monkey.
This animal was a good deal likoaiuan,
I but bo failed lit some important partiell
' lars to resemble the original. Ono of these
j was his inability to speak, and the devil
i tried to remedy this fault, but found it,
i impossible. Ho also discovered that his
little man did not possess the Intelligence
j of the larger being he had tried to Imitate,
j and disgusted with the impossibility of
making his monkey speak or of impress?
ing Upon his mind that he should act as a
reasonable being, ho gave up tho attempt,
in despair, and in order to compensate the.
creature he had made for tho great fail?
