If every householder would attend to his trees the expense would be little or nothing and the appearance ot our streets would be greatly improved when summer comes. H. B.

Maddex has moved into his new dwelling-house on Fairview avenue on the boom. This is a large and substantial frame residence that Mr. Maddex has built for himself, and with its fine porches and of pleasing design, it is an ornament to that part of the town. The dwelling makes a fine appearance. Special Commissioner James M.

Mason, last week sold the Wyatt farm of 174 acres, two miles north of Charles Town, at public sale to George B. Zinn at $80.40 per acre. This is the first farm of value sold at public sale in a long time. and many persons were interested in it. Mr.

Zinn will plant a large apple orchard on the farm. 1 Mr. Henry L. Murray, a well-known young resident of Charles Town, and Miss 1 Elizabeth Vandiver McCampbell, of Go- liad, Texas, were married at the home of the bride in the latter place last Wed- nesday. The bride is a graduate of Mary Baldwin Seminary at Staunton, and the groom is a son of Major J.

Ogden Mur- i ray, of Charles Town. A terrific storm passed over this section last Monday afternoon. Lightning, thunder, hail and rain, pre vailed, and wind that was about like a cyclone blew down fences and small building In Philadel phia much damage was done by the storm, the Pennsylvania Railroad being blocked for a couple of hours. One man was killed and others were injured. There re still some bad sidewalks in town that ought to be improved with a good pavements.

The excellent work that was started along this line a few years ago should not be allowed to languish until every piece of property in town is improved with a good sidewalk. Comparatively little work was done last year, and our city fathers ought to issue some more An automobile in which Messrs. H. C. Brooks, L.

H. Thompson and Robert E. Thompson had started forShepherdstown last Friday upset just as they were leaving Martinsburg, and all of them were thrown out. L. H.

Thompson was quite painfully bruised and shaxen up, but the others escaped with little injury. W. L. McCauley was the chauffeur. Later Mr.

Brooks got a horse and buggy and came on to Shepherdstown. An interesting law suit was tried before Magistrate Pendleton in Shepherdstown last Friday. It appears that a number of sheep belonging to Sheriff Chas. D. Wy- song got mixed up with a flock of sheep belonging to C.

F. Wall that were being driven past the Wysong farm. They tl were shipped away by Mr. Wall's men, and Mr. Wysong sued to recover their tl value.

The trial resulted in a verdict in a favor of Mr. Wysong for $116.60. Robert T. Banks has moved into the new dwelling-house that he has just completed on the tract of land that he bought from H. W.

Potts along the Charles Town road. This is a comfort- able and substantial residence built of ii concrete blocks in a very pretty situation, and Mr. Banks will have a very desirable home. Luther Thompson moves from Moler's Cross Roads to the dwelling on Duke street vacated by Mr. Banks.

A writer in the Charles Town Spirit makes the suggestion that the road supervisors, by the authority of the County Court, take under their charge the plant- ing of shade trees along our public roads, thus beautifying the highways that are ti being so greatly improved. We regard this as an excellent idea, and believe that the people generally would approve of it. What betteradvertiseinent could Jefferson county have than to make its roads delightful avenues? L. D. Maddex, who moved with his family from the Uvilla vicinity to Berlin, on the Eastern Snore of Maryland, in December last, is reported to oe in bad health.

His trouble is due to a tumor that formed on his shoulder some time last year, when a surgical operation was resorted to in order to remove it. The growth continued after the operation, and letters from his family to relatives in this county state that his physicians have de- 0 cided to amputate his arm in the hope of checking the ravages of the vocate. Harvey A. Bush, of Martinsburg, is in Shepherdstown this week interviewing our people on the subject of water. Mr.

Bush represents H. C. Brooks, who has the franchise for the installation of a wa nuiivs aystciu. ne is making a canvass of property owners and house-hold- ers to see it sufficient contracts can be secured to justify the undertaking, for naturally Mr. Brooks will not go into the at enterprise unless he sees a certain amount of patronage.

We hope that our people will all "take water" in this instance, and that the great blessing of plenty of water 1 I may soon be ours. I PERSONAL NOTES. Mr. and Mrs. R.

Duke, of this coun'' ty, died in Washington City last week, and was buried in the family lot in Edge Hill Cemetery, Charles Town, on Thurs' day. Mr. Duke, who was a native of the Bakerton neighborhood, went with his mother and brother to Washington some years ago, and had a position in the ofr fices of the Southern Railway Company. Last year he went to Muskogee, Oklahoma, where his cousins were located, and soon after he reached there he had a severe illness from smallpox. Although he recovered from the disease, it left him with lung trouble, and though he sought the dry climate of Arizona in the hope of relief, he grew rapidly worse.

He held out as long as he could, but finally had to give up the fight and return East, being cared for by his brother, Chiswell Duke, in Washington, until the end came. Mr. Duke, who was just about 21 years old, was a tine young man, and his untimely death is greatly deplored. Harold Maddex, the seven-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs.

Turner W. Maddex, formerly ot Shepherdstown, died in Washington last Friday night under distressing circumstances. About a year ago the little boy accidentally swallowed a beauty pin, which the surgeons finally succeeded in extracting, after considerable difficulty. He had been quite seriously affected by the ordeal, however. A silver tube had to be kept in his throat ever since, and he had not been able to speak above a whisper.

A short time ago the doctors decided to remove the tube, but he biled to receive any benefit, and on Friday night he died. The body was brought to Shepherdstown to the home of M. P. Crowl, and on Tuesday, after service in the Southern Methodist Church, conducted by Rev. Dr.

Charles Ghiselin, was interred in Elmwood Cemetery. Mrs. Jane L. Campbell, one of the oldest residents of Jefferson county, died last Saturday night at the home of her son, J.T. "Traveler's Rest," near Kearneysville, aged 92 years.

The deceased, who was the widow of John H. Campbell, a former deputy sheriff of Jefferson county, was a Miss Moore prior to her marriage, and was the last member of a large family. She is survived by two sons, E. Dudley and J. Thomas Campbell, of Jefferson county, and one daughter, Mrs.

William Bennett, of Brandy Station, Va. Funeral services were held Monday afternoon in the Church in Charles Town, conducted by Rev. Dr. A. C.

Hopkins, after which the remains were interred in Edge Hill Cemetery. Dr. Jonathan A. C. Howcr, for many years a druggist of Martinsburg, died at his home there on Tuesday, aged 84.

He was a native of Clear Spring, and was graduated from the Baltimore MediI cal College in 1852 and practiced his profession in Natchez, before removing to Martinsburg. He was a deputy sheriff for several years and later engaged i in the drug business, which he followed until two years ago, when he retired from active business. He was a Mason of high rank. Rev. Dr.

C. L. Keedy, a well-known retired Lutheran minister of Hagerstown, died suddenly last Saturday from heart disease, in the 77th year of his age. Dr. Keedy had served as pastor of Lutheran churches in various parts of the country, and was also for a number of years the 1 head of Kee-MarCollege, in Hagerstown.

He was known in Shepherdstown, where he occasionally preached. He is survived by his wife, three sons and a daughter. 1 Miss Mamie Toomey, a highly-regard- ed young lady of Alexandria, who has occasionally visited the family of Michael Wright in Shepherdstown, died at her home in the former place last Friday, aged 24 years. Her death was caused by consumption. Mrs Wright and Miss Agnes Wright attended the fu- neral.

Charles B. Doll, a native of Martins- burg, died a few days ago in Louisville, aged 61 years. He was a brother of Frank W. Doll, and leaves a wife and four grown children. A Inhn I mis.

nun ncnci, wuv. ui mi. Keller, died at her home in Harper's Fer- ry last Sunday from paralysis, aged 73 1 years. She is survived by her husband and two daughters. Rev.

Father Sebastian Rabbia, pastor of the Catholic Church in Hagerstown for the past 24 years, died suddenly from Bright's disease on Sunday, aged 71 years. The Charles Town Free Press Sold. The Charles Town Free Press, which is the oldest newspaper in West Virginia, and in its time one of the influential papers of the State, has been sold to Hon. William Campbell, formerly State Senator from this district. The Free Press has been in the Gallaher family from the date of its establishment about a hundred years ago, the last editor of that name hiving been the late W.

W. B. Gallaher, perhaps the wittiest writer and ablest editor that our State has ever known. Since his death the Free Press has been owned by his heirs, but as the only son, 1 Norval Gallaher, lives in Washington, they finally concluded to sell the paper. Mr.

Campbell, the new owner, is a wellknown and aggressive Democrat, and under his management the Free Press will doubtless be revivified and made a factor in West Virginia affairs. For sev- eral years past the Free Press has been creditably conducted by Charles T. Butler, formerly of Shepherdstown. We understand that Mr. Campbell will put in a complete new plant.

4 Distribution of the largest amount of public service corporation taxes ever collected in the history of West Virginia is now being made through the office of State Auditor John S. Darst. Over 12,000,000 collected by the Auditor's from the public service corporations doing business in West Virginia is being disbursed among the counties, cities, districts and towns of the State. While in former years the public service corporation taxes distributed have nearly reached the two million mark, the present year is the first instance where that figure has been exceeded. This year the total amount of the taxes distributed the office of Auditor Darst will i amount to $2,131,988.87.

Of this amount county gets $24,496.13, Berkeley $26,801, and Morgan $33,364 71. I Kanawha county receives the largest share, her proportion being $110,662 05. Shepherdstown gets from this distribu- i Hon $106.74. I Martinsburg Goes "Dry." By the decisive majority of 172 votes the people of Martinsburg on Monday last expressed themselves as opposed to liquor siioons in that city. There were 1,138 votes for license and the total of 2,448 being the heaviest vote ever cast in the city at any election.

Both sides worked to their utmost to get out the vote, the temperance people being aided by the good women of the town very materially. An all-day prayer-meeting was held in the Lutheran Church, and when the result was announced tht re was great rejoicing at the temperance headquarters. The doxjlogy was sung twice and the church bells were rung loud and long in celebration of the victory. The sentiment of the town was strongly for no-license, and business and professional men and ministers and laymen rejoiced together. The election was held by permission of the council in order to get the sense of the people on the question of license or no license.

Although it is not legally obligatory, the council will obey the wishes of the voters, and will refuse recommendation for licenses for two years from the first of next July. Sixteen saloons and three brewery branches will be put out of business. The campaign was begun as a matter of public necessity, almost, for the saloons were so "wide open" and drunkenness and disorder had become so rampant, that the people determined to put an end to the evil. At each week-end the roughs and toughs from the town and the public works in the county adjoining took possession of the place, and it was annoying and dangerous for ladies to be on the streets. Saturday nights the lockups would be filled beyond their capacity with drunken men, and many country persons found conditions so objectionable that they hesitated to go to the place IU tlclUC.

lieu UIC IIIUY CUIClIt dd Olfli ed to clean the city, most of the leading men joined in heartily, and they put up a splendid campaign. Speakers of national reputation delivered addresses, local workers were enlisted, facts and figures given the people and temperance literature extensively circulated. The liquor advocates were busy, also, but before they realized their danger they were practically beaten. They held but one public Friday the saloons were defended by former Mayor Rose, of Milwaukee, Cougressman Adam Littlepage, of Charleston, and Stuart W. Walker, of Martinsburg.

The meeting was not much of a success, for the temerance speakers like Captain Hobson, Governor Hanley, Seaborn Wright and other noted men had set a pace that was hard to follow. The Martinsburg Statesman was straight-out for no license, and gave very effective help to the temperance cause. The World and the Journal took no sides in the contest editorially, but published advertisements ol both the wets and drys with cheenul impartiality. The men who were most active in carrying on the work or me temperance campaign were rcev. W.

F. Gruver, chairman of the executive committee; C. W. Boyer, secretary; Rev. John S.

Douglass, Postmaster E.C. Henshaw and Alexander Clohan. The saloon interests were represented by those directly interested, of course, and also had the services of Attorneys Stuart W. Walker, H. H.

Emmert and Clarence E. Martin. Former Senator Faulkner had a letter published expressing himself against local option. The business men of the town, as a rule, were for temperance, and on Monday closed up their stores and engaged in active work among the voters. Many old combinations and alliances were broken up during the campaign and new friendships were formed that will have a decided influence upon the future political situation in Berkeley county.

The Register offers its smcerest congratulations to the courageous men who tiave fought such a good fight and won such a splendid victory, and we rejoice with the people generally in the triumph of order and decency and temperance. 1 IT IS CURABLE. 1 Dyspepsia may be completely eradicated if properly treated.

Owens Miller. A terrible catastrophe occurred in New York last Saturday afternoon. Fire broke out on the ninth floor of a tall building in which hundreds of persons were employed in making shirt-waists, and it spread with such rapidity that all escape was cut off. Those that could force their way through the windows jumped to certain death a hundred feet below, while others were burned to death in groups among their sewing machines or ere crushed as they hurled themselves into the eievator shafts to escape the flames. One hnnHrpft and fortv-three oersons.

mostly young girls, met a horrible death, many of them being so mangled and burned that identification was impossible. In response to petitions from the people of Lawrence county, including the town of New Castle, Judge Wm. E. Porter has refused to grant a single liquor license for the ensuing year. No less than 370 liquor saloons will thus be closed.
