She presented her subject in an earnest, logical manner, carrying conviction with every word she uttered, and not an unjust criticish could be made against her. Leaving a happy home, and with it all the name implies, she, with het husband, is travel ing this broad land of ours over, "that less honored homes may be made happier."

About 10 o'clock Thursday night, Mr. Peter Herancourt, a highly respected citizen of this city, died suddenly of heart disease at his residence on Mero street. He had been sitting with his family all the evening engaged in pleasant conversation, and just before his usual hour for retiring went out to bring in a scuttle of coal. As he was gone some time his daughter, Mist Lillie, went to look for him, and fuund him in an almost unconscious condition. She iiume diately called for help and shortly after he was gotten into the house he breathed his last. He came to this citv from Cincinnati twelve or thirteen years ago and established the malt house and has been doing n very prosperous business.

Several gentlemen were with him, who purchased his ticket, and requested Mr. Bryan to see him on the train, lei t him in the waiting room. When the train came in he was assisted on board and started on his journey. On Tuesday a letter was received by Mr. Bryan from the Superintendent of the C. & O. Railroad, wanting to know who the old gentleman was, and stated that he had been carried by his destination in the night but had been returned there and put oft by train. The next morning his body was found by the side of the track, having been run over and cut intwo by some passing train. The poor old man, not knowing where to go, was evidently wandering about in the darkness when he met his death. Some of the older citizens there thought they recognized the remains as those of a man who left that locality fifty years ago, but Mr. Bryan could tell them nothing as to the old gentlemun, for he had never seen him before and did not know the men who were with him. It is sad indeed, after waking so many years to visit his native place that death should interpose just an his eyes, dimmed by age, were about to be gladdened by a sight of the place where the happy days of childhood and youth had been spent a sight which he had so longed for and was so sure he would see, now that the trains pass right by his old home Later. It is thought the remains are those of a man who killed a man at Culpepper fifty years ago and fled the country.

At the Grand Opera House last evening that greatest ol American plays, "The Banker's Daughter," wuh presented by J. F.

The plot of the play is already too well know to require an extended review in these columns, suffice it to suy that the many thrilling and interesting situations were listened to with wrapt attention by the auditor, and the members of the cast were rewarded with numerous hearty encores. The "John Strebelow" ol Charles L. Fnrwell, the "Mr. Brown" of James F. Tiehe, and the "G. Washington L'hipps" of J. F. Crossen were the ni09t evenly rendered characters among the gentlemen, while the honors with the ladies were shared between Miss Marian Erie as "Florence St. Vincent Brown," and Miss May Lecce as "Lilian." The acting of little May Keane in the character of "Natalie," "Lilian's" daughter, also calls for words of commendation and showed a remarkable a uount of prccociouHness in one so young. The piece was very effectively set, the most notable scenes being the vestibule and stairway of the house of the American Minister at Paris in act third, and the ruins of the chateau near Paris, when the duel takes place in act fourth.

Mr. Editor, I phi somewhat like Tenni son. When I commence writing I don't know when to stop. Will call your attention to two other items and then close. There is a report in circulation here about Mr. Collins, which is doing him (injustice. It says that in his other race he took several deputies on his ticket to secure there influence to elect him, and when elected he offered them such a small price nnd demanded such a bond that they could not qualify, ht'i c they were bound to be lelt out. 1 saw Mr. Collins and he made this statement, and, if true, it can not but convince any reasonable man that does not let prejudice rule him that Mr. Collins is right. He offered the deputies forty dollars a month, take any kind of reasonable bond, the bond shouldn't bother them. They tailed to accept, consequently it was not" his fault, the terms being reasonable.

I will illustrate in this way a person who has had opportunities to do something and did not do it is like a man you would hire to do a day's work, trusting to him.
