The Things of Intereat that are Happening In Our Neighborhood and Elsewhere. Mr. B. F. Howell, of Engle's Switch, this county, beats Loudoun county in tall wheat. He sent us several stalks today six feet one inch in length,beating Mr. Reuben Jenkins by four inches. The Register is a few hours late this week. A desire to give a full account of the exercises at Shepherd j College isour reason for the delay, ac- , centuated by a rush of other work | that has kept us busy night and day. Mr. M. A. Snodgrass and Miss Sue Browne Stribbling, two of Martinsburg's most popular residents, were married in that place Tuesday evening. The ceremony took place in the Presbyterian Church, Rev. Dr. F. M. Woods officiating. Mr. James R. Rickard has just received an order for six dozen of his famous old screw locks from Mr. Joseph II. Sands,general manager of the South Carolina and Georgia Railroad. They are to be used as switch locks on this road, which has been using them for many years. We have received the first dopy of the Advocate, published at Mannington. this State, and edited bv Mr. W. * M. Entler, a former Shepherdstown boy. It is a bright, wide-awake upto-date paper in all respects, and it ought to do well, as we hope it will. It is to be independent iu politics. There will be a lawn supper held in the yard of the Presbyterian Church at Ivearneysville Saturday evening, July 10th, from 5 to 10 o'clock. The public is cordially invited to patronize this supper, the proceeds of which will be devoted to making some repairs on the church building, and to buying new books for the Sunday school library. The wheat market has shown but slight fluctuations within the past week, and No. 2 red is quoted in Baltimore at 79 cents per bushel. The accounts from countries where harvesting has begun say the yield will be heavy. Our local dealers are offering 70 cents. The first new wheat arrived in Baltimore last Saturday and sold at! 95 cents a bushel. It came from Southwest Virginia. It was stated in Roanoke the other day that R. H. Soule, superintendent of motive power of the Norfolk and Western Railway, and H. A. Gillis, 1 assistant superintendent, had resigned their positions, and that Mr. Lewis, of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad, had been given charge of the consolidated positions. The news will probably be officially confirmed in a few days. Prof. E. Stanton Field, of Philadelphia, who is well-known here as a vis itor to Rockland, the Schley home- j stead, recently received the degree of Bachelor of Music from the University ; of Pennsylvania. This is a difficult degree to obtain, as one must write a cantata for orchestra, chorus and soli before he is eligible. Prof. Field wrote a cantata on the subject, "The Fountain of Living Waters," which took eight months of hard work. We understand that but eight of these degrees have been conferred in twentytwo years. Prof. Field is now connected with the Staunton Military Academy. A very enjoyable entertainment was held in the town hall last Thursday night, the occasion being the contest ! by the members of the elocution class of Miss Nellie Stowe Pentecost for a gold medal. The contestants were B. j F. Sperow, George C. Hill, H. E. Ta[ bier, E. H. Spohn, E. P. McGarry, I Miss Mary Trussell and Miss Lillian Knott. The judges, Mrs. A. S. Dundridge, Hon. G. M. Beltzhoover and Rev. G. G. Everhart, decided in favor of Miss Trussell, who recited "Where's Annette ?" The other contestants did very well, however, and it must have been a hard matter to decide who should win the prize. Miss Katie Lucas recited very sweetly also, and little Louise Anna Snyder brought down the house with several childish selections. The good work of the speakers reflects credit upon their teacher, Miss Pentecost, who is from the Pittsburg School of Oratory. The Norfolk & Western Railway sends us an announcement that it will sell tickets at all stations on its road for the fourth of July at the rate of one fare for the round trip. Tickets will be on sale July 3, 4 and 5, good to return until July Ctb. This is something like it ought to be. The TIT fVlP TPT7PTSP Hi Ou ?T iiiVO UOUOii^ vvvu vuv . w , j of generous in passenger rates, and we hope that a new policy is to be inaugurated that will be more liberal. On the Shenandoah Valley division of this road there are many attractive spots that could be made money-makers for the company. Cheap and frequent excursions to Natural Bridge, Luray Caverns, Pen-Mar, Morgan's Greve and perhaps other places would, in our opinion, add to the popularity of the road and largely increase its revenues. And we believe, too, that a reduction of its mileage books from 2} to 2 cents a mile would in the end pay the road much better?especially if they were more liberally treated and the conductors were not required to gobble them up on the slightest provocation. The N. & W. passenger department wants to hustle into the line of reform as well as the others. PERSONAL8. A Record of the Coming end Going of the People That You Know. Mrs. J. P. A.

The clothing store of Mr. Jacob Wintermoyer, next door to the Regis ter office, was burglarized last Saturday night for the fifth time in the past few years. An early riser last Sunday morning found a chisel and file in the door of the Southern Methodist Church. It was suggested that a robbery might have been committed, and Wesley Seibert tried the doors in the block. Mr. Wintermoyer's store door was found unlocked, and when he was sent for he at once saw that thieves had been there, having entered by picking or forcing the lock of the front door. So far as he could tell, they had stolen six or eight suits of clothes, several gum coats, two boxes of shirts, a lot of jewelry and notions, etc. It was not until Monday night, however, that Mr. Wintermoyer discovered his most serious loss, when he found that a wallet containing notes, due bills, etc., amounting to between $1,200 and $1,500, had been taken from his desk. Tuesday evening Mr. Wintermoyer received word that a part of the goods had been found in a hay stack by Mr. John Boyer, near Shenandoah Junction. He went out there yesterday and recovered a gum coat, a couple of shirts, sixteen pairs of gloves and some socks. While taking some hay from a stack Mr. Boyer had found the goods, where they had been hidden by the thieves, and he took them to the house. The same night they returned for the plunder, and almost tore the stack down in their hunt for the goods. It's a great pity they couldn't have been caught. Mr. Winterrnoyer will give a liberal reward for the return of the papers, for it will be a serious loss to him if they are not found. Among: the Churches.

The entire Board of Regents of the j State Normal Schools of West Virgiuia are in Shepherdstown to attend the commencement exercises of Shepherd College. The hoard is now composed of Hon. J. R. Trotter, president, Hon. Harvey W. Harmer, Col. R. S. Carr, Mr. George W. Johnson and Mr. Waitman Barbe. At a meeting this afternoon they reorganized the executive committee of Shepherd College by electing Mr. H. C. Getzendanner a member in place of Mr. E. Hess Reinhart. They also authorized the executive committee to proceed at once with the grading of the grounds of the newbuilding and the repairs to the old structure, $500 to be expended on each. Two rooms in the old building were set apart for the use of the socie- i ties, and a small appropriation given to each one for furnishing. The Big-g-est Carp Yet. The biggest carp we have ever heard of in this section was captured last Monday below Shepherdstown, near Flanagan's quarries, by Mr. A. M. Hopper and his sons. The fish had gone into a shallow place, presumably to spawn, when Mr. Hopper saw it and with the assistance of his boys finally got it ashore. They weighed it, and it tipped the scales at 45J pounds, breaking the record for big carp in the Potomac, so far we have heard. The fish was killed, but its captors did not eat it. It contained about a-half bushel of roe, more or less. Notes From Nearby. Oscar Bellman, a well-known Hagerstown man, died of pneumonia last week, aged 54 years. He was in the steam-heating business. The eleventh annual convention of the Virginia State Firemen's Association will be held in Winchester on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, July 7, 8 and 9.

Humrickhouse, of Williamsport, who was under treatment at a Baltimore hospital for several months, was compelled to have one of his eyes taken out. He is now rapidly improving, and it is thought his remaining eye can be saved. We acknowledge the reception of a complimentary ticket to the annual meet of the Maryland Division L. A.

This is an attractive addition to the already large galaxy of pretty and charming young ladies of this city. w r n i TT mi 1 1 ! ;urs. oar an n. i nomas, an ageu ana highly respected lady, met her death yesterday by falling in a well at her residence in Boonsboro. She had | opened the trapdoor of the well and was drawing up the bucket, when it is supposed she was seized with an attack i of vertigo and fell headlong a distance of forty feet. Her body was brought to the surface by means of a rope fastened around her. She struck her head against the stone wall, fracturing her skull and causing instant death. Mrs. Thomas was seventy-nine years of age. A letter has been received by a relative in Williamsport from Jack Lemen, recently convicted of cutting Miss Lizzie Taylor's throat and sentenced to the penitentiary for twenty years. He states that he has become resigned to his fate and bears up for his mother's sake; that he was treated well by the prison authorities, and that he had been put to work in the shoe department. He inquired feelingly for Miss Taylor, and asked if she was improving. He blames his rash act on the excessive use of intoxicants, and stated that the whole affair is a blank to him, being, as he was, crazed with whiskey. His mother has been ill since the affair, and it is stated that her hair, which was heretofore unusually dark, has become white from worry over the doings of her wayward son. Mr. William r. Alexander, employed as stenographer and typewriter in the office of Col. Forrest Brown, at Charlestown, met with a serious accident Thursday afternoon. He had been repairing his bicycle, and had mounted the same to see if it was properly adjusted, when he lost his balance, his left arm breaking and pushing through the glass of a bookcase. His wrist was terribly cut and the flesh lacerated to the bone and torn loose for at least three inches, exposing the j bone. The arteries and tendons were severed and he bled profusely. He ran from the office across the street to Light's drug store, where his arm was bound to stop the flow of blood, and Drs. Wm. Xeill and C. T. Richardson dressed the wound after administering chloroform. He was removed to his home on a cot. For a short time his life was in danger from loss of blood, but he has since been slowly improving. There is more Catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo. Ohio, is the only constitutional cure on the market. It is A i -. 11.. ,1 r- in a I IHKL'II III I'THilJ I \ ill UU3C3 IIU JI IU uiupa to a teaspoonful.

He sayp: "I have not sufficient command of language to convey any idea of what I suffered; my physicians told me that nothing could be done for me ; and mv friends were fully convinced that nothing but death would relieve me of my suffering. In June, 1864, Mr. Evans, then salesman for tho Wheeling Drug Co., recommended Chamberlain's Pain Balm.

Editor Morrison of Woathington, Ind., "Sun," writes: "You have a valuable prescription in Electric Bitters, and I can cheerfully recommend it for Constipation and Sick Headache, and as a general eystem tonic it has no ! equal."

Sturgiss, president of the trustees of the State University at Morgantown, referring to the two vacancies created by the board, the president of the University and the directorship of the State Agricultural College, said the board was determined to institute a new plan. The salary of the president will be raised from $2,500, the present compensation, to $5,000 or $6,000 a year, and a man secured for the place who is amply worth the money. The agricultural directorship will be treated the same way. While this increased expense will necessitate curtailments on other lines till the next legislature meets, the trustees believe it the only plan for raising the school to the plane occupied by other universities.
