By oversight the schedule of the steamer Favorite, eastward, was not changed in this issue. The steamer leaves Baltimore duily, except Sunday, at 3.25 in the afternoon and arrives at Queenstown at G.10. A tenant house on the farm of Captain James T. Kemp,near Agner, ·was destroyed by fire ou Sunday, April 24th. ,The origin of the fire is u n k n o w n , and the loss was pretty nearly covered by insurance.

Bernard president, Frederick R. Owens vice-president, and George L. Wallace, of Baltimore, cashier. Mr. Wallace, the cashier, is a son-in-law of Senator B. II. Messick and has had experience in banking business. It is likely t h a t a teller or book-keeper will be chosen at the next meeting. There are said /to be several applicants for the position. Patrons of the postoffices along the line of the Queen Anne's railroad are petitioning the Postmaster-General to-allow the steamer Favorite to make the regular trips as formerly, there being no danger in passing in and out of harbor. The Favorite is a flat-bottomed boat, d r a w i n g but 6J- feet of water, and does not travel - in the ship channel, whore the explosive mines are planted. Since the order forbidding vessels to pass in and out between sunset and sunrise went into effect there has been several hours delay in receiving the Baltimore malls, and considerable - . inconvenience is thereby occasioned.

AFTER MORE THAN A YEAR'S ILLNESS, o Jiimes Is". Tol) Dies :\t tlio JuluiR Hopkins Hospital, liiiltlmorc. A telegram on Sunday last announced the death of James Nathan Todd, a prouiineut member of the Caroline bar, at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, in Baltimore. A little over a year ago he was taken ill. His aillictiou, which was of the stomach, caused indigestion in its worst form, and he suffered much pain. A visit to the hospital d u r i n g the latter part of April, '97, afforded Duly temporary relief, and all the spring and s u m m e r he continued to grow weaker. An operation being necessary he returned to the hospital, where an eminent specialist treated him. Twice the surgeon's knife had to be used, and from the last operation the patient derived much benefit. He returned to Denton in November, and he and bis friends had strong hope t h a t ho would soon bo himself again. Some weeks ago, however, the manifestations of the old disease were noticed, and Mr. Todd was again compelled to keep his room. He was again taken to the hospital, but grew vapidly worse. His condition was so weak that it was deemed inadvisable to subject him to another o p e r a t i o n , and death came as a benisou after so m u c h suffering. The deceased was the second sou of the Rev. Robert W. Todd, a Methodist Episcopal minister, and a former citizen of this county. lie was born near Deutou on October otli, 1861. He attended the Seminary at Felton and the Academy at Dover, and subsequently t a u g h t school in Delaware. At the April term of c o u r t , 1SS3, ho was a d m i t t e d to the Caroline bar, and has since practiced in t h i s and o t h e r courts. Ho was regarded as a careful and able attorney, and had an extensive practice. He was a commissioner in chancery iu t h i s court for several years. In politics Mr. Todd was a Republican, and in 1SS7 was a candidate for State's Attorney. He was defeated by Henry R. Lewis, Esq., the Democratic nominee. In August, 1SS5, Mr. Todd leased the American Union from the l a t e - J o h n H. Emerson, and conducted the newspaper business for several m o n t h s , being succeeded by Messrs. F. C. H. E. Ramsdell. . Mr. Todd was twice m a r r i e d , ' his first wife being Miss Ella J u m p , a d a u g h t e r of Register of Wills Robert J. Jump, and his widow was Miss Clara Naudain, daughter o£ the lato James M. Naudain, of Philadelphia, and a grand-niece of United States Senator N a u d a i n , of Delaware. Dr. Alexander Hardcastle, of this place, is an uncle. James N. Todd, Jr., aged three-and-a-half years, is the only s u r v i v i n g child of the deceased, two others being dead. . Prof. John R.

Obedience and faith will bring victory." The Woman's Foreign Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church on the Eastern Shore will hold a district meeting in Greensbor- ough M. E.

Wheeler, of Hillsborough, general manager of the Wheeler Transportation Line, suffered a most peculiar accident on Thursday morning of last week. He was on the company's pier, iu Baltimore, when a lady passenger left the steamer and was about to start out i n t o the snow-storm then prevailing. Captain Wheeler hastened to the oJflce, procured an umbrella, and was in the act of hoisting it, when his left arm fell useless to his side. He imagined immediately that he had been stricken with paralysis. He walked up to his office and told his son, Mr. Elmer E. Wheeler, who hurriedly summoned a physician. The doctor saw at once that the trouble was not paralysis, but explained to Captain Wheeler that his arm was broken in two places. In Memory of Miss Wlllaril.

No one can be healthy and h a p p y and free from unrighteousness who indulges in the use of liquor. Coltish orough. Mr. Leslie Wallace and Miss Essa Weedman and Mr. S. R.

Aside f i o n i the b r i l l i a n t achievements of Commodore Dewey and the Asiatic squadron iu the a n n i h i l a t i o n of the Spanish fleet and t h e probable capture of Manila, the capital of the Philippine Islands, this week has been an u n e v e n t f u l one in war circles. To bo sure, the w o n d e r f u l work of our navy in tho Eastern Eemispltore o u g h t to f u r n i s h enough lory for one week, but past victories will uot suffice an i m p a t i e n t n u b l i c . Every paper and b u l l e t i n i. eagerly scanned for news of the conflict, and unless something startling is f o u n d the reader is disappointed. This thirst for news was f u l l y gratified d u r i n g tbo first of the week, when the wires were telling of how the ships of the Asiatic fleet had, under cover of the darkness, sailed right into Manila bay and at dawn Sunday morning engaged the Spanish fleet and forts in w h a t proved to be a battle of extermination,, as far as the Spanish ships were concerned. All news of this battle has reached us t h r o u g h Spanish and other European sources, and as these reports a d m i t that the American victory was so c o m p l e t e there can be no d o u b t of its a u t h e n t i c i t y . The cables were cut shortly alter the first news was received, and as Commodore Dewey's official report has uot had t i m e ' to reach Washington we can only surmise as to the f u l l scope of his achievements. There is every reason to believe t h a t the stars and stripes now float over the Philippines and t h a t tho Americans h a v e charge of tho government. From reports received before the c u t t i n g of the cables it is p r e t t y well establisedthat every one of Spain's ten ships were destroyed, with an a w f u l loss of life. Dewey's full report is expected at any t i m e , by way of Hong Kong. Sampson's fleet, off Cuba, has con- tin tied to take prizes, and has captured a n u m b e r of prisoners of war, among whom was a b r o t h e r - i n - l a w of Butcher Weyler. The movements o£ the squadron during the last day or so have been somewhat mysterious, and some decisive action is expected to take place soon. A small detachment of American troops has been landed in Cuba and a large force is ready to follow. Spain is on the verge of a r e v o l u t i o n , and the Queen Regent is said to be ready to leave the country at any m o m e n t . The b a t t l e s h i p Oregon and her convoys have left Rio Janeiro, and tho Spanish fleet is said to be on the way to Porto Rico. Orphans' Court Proceedings. At the session of the court on Tuesday, Einma Bell arid William T. Bell, administrators of T. W.

Tho compressor is a p u m p i n g engine especially designed to compress the ammonia gas and force it t h r o u g h the pipes of the condenser, u n d e r a pressure, according to the temperature of th condensing water, v a r y i n g Eroni l.j to 185 pounds per square inch. Th condenser is a system of! pipes sub merged in cold water or over wliicl a constant s u p p l y of cold w a t e r i allowed to flow. The heat producei by the compression of the ammoui: gas is absorbed by tho cold wate s u r r o u n d i n g the pipes, when the gas, becomes liquified aud is then in pro per condition to do the actual work oE refrigeration. Continuous coils of pipe are placed iu contact will the cans c o n t a i n i n g water to be fro zen and the liquified ammonia gas from the condenser is fed iuto these pipes at a pressure varying from 10 to 30 pounds per square inch, where it re-expands a thousand times iuto a gaseous state and by so doing- rapidly absorbs the heat from the pipe and s u r r o u n d i n g s which produces au intense cold. The expansion coils arc connected w i t h tho suction pipe of the compressor and a f t e r the gas has performed its refrigerating work it enters the cylinder of the eotnpres sor aud is again d r i v e n on its rouut of operation, the same gas being used continuously. The method mosl generally used for tho m a u u f a c t u i o of ice is what is known as the "can system." In this system the am- mouia expansion coils are immersed in a tank filled w i t h brine which is cooled to a low temperature, in which cans of p u r e water are frozen into solid cakes of crystal ice varying iu weight from 100 to 300 pounds, as may best suit local requirements. Tho machinery for a complete can ice factory, such as Mr. Towers has, consists of: A m m o n i a compressor and e n g i n e ; a m m o n i a condenser a freezing tank ; amniocia expansion coils; ice cans; an automatic cau- Q l l e r ; can hoisting apparatus ; brine agitating apparatus; a t h a w i n g tank; an iron can d u m p ; au ornamental gauge board with gauges; au oil separator ; au ammonia receiver; au a m m o n i a pipe system ; a distilling and p u r i f y i n g apparatus ; a standard t u b u l a r stationary boiler.

This should afford one of the best markets in this section of the c o u n t r y since the war. Besides the fact should be borne in mind that all the people, or most of them, who arc now in army service were producers one way or another. Through the government they have now become consumers. Hence there is every prospect of au increase of those m a n y products of the Eastern Shore. It is not too late for the farmers to p l a n t such crops as peas, potatoes, beans, cabbage, tomatoes, etc. There will be just as large demand, if not larger, for tlkese vegetables late -in the s u m m e r and early iu the fall as earlier in the summer. It seems to me that Eastern Shore A I.rssoii in Geography. Since tho time whon no oue remembers to the contrary, the Baltimore newspapers have referred to the Eastern Shore iu a way which would lead tbo stranger to think the territory ou this side of the Chesapeake very little bigger t h a n au election d i s t r i c t . The Eatton Ledger makes this appeal to the Baltimore press : "Won't you, please, iu recording the departure of your people be more specific? The f o r m u l a as a general t h i n g has been some- t h i n g like this : Mr. So-and-so and Miss T h i n g u m b o b , of North Charles street, are spending a m o n t h ou the Eastern Shore. On the Eastern Shore ! You might as well say they are out in the c o u n t r y , so far as any k n o w l e d g e oE their exact whero- iibouls is concerned. It so happens t h a t the Eastern Shore is larger lliau the F o u r t h ward of Baltimore. It is composed of n i n e c o u n t i e s w i t h an area of U n i t y - f i v e hundred squaro miles. Therefore, how arc \vo to k n o w just where Mr. So-and-so and Miss T h i n g u m b o b , of Noi'tli, Charles street, are, any way f They may be somewhere in Cecil c o u n t y , or t h e y may be at Princess A n n e , iu Somerset; and we'd have a p r e t t y hard t i m e finding t h e m if we should .set out to do it. Wo are also p a i n e d to observe that we have people r i g h t here in Talbot who get t h e i r names stuck in the city papers t h a t Mr. Jim S m i t h , of t h e E a s t e i n Shore, is in t o w n . There are a b o u t oue h u n - dred and eighty-seven t h o u s a n d pco pie on the Eastern Shore, anil u few h u n d r e d maybe a i o J i m S m i t h s . So how are we to know u bother it is t h e Carolina Jim Smith or the Wicomico Jim S m i t h who has the distinction of ii no'ti'ee in tho sassiety c o l u m n of our metropolitan contemporaries?" farmers should have a. crop of vegetables constantly ready to be gathered and forwarded to market, for there promises to be a constant market, aud profitable oue, too, at that. What is true of the crops I have named is t r u e of watermelons aud cantelcnps. I cannot imagine a better market for.these delicacies than a camp of soldiers, who always have money and are always willing to i n d u l g e themselves. I shoujd think, too, that the market for fish, crabs aud clams, which are the summer products of the Chesapeake Bay and its tribuarties in abundance would be greatly enlarged by the large additions to the great army of consumers. No one regrets the war," coucluded Mr. Wilson, "more t h a n I do. I have been through one and I k n o w its horrors; but as long as it has come we must prepare to meet it. One of the ways is to be able to supply the increased means of sustenance for the men in field." Ooitnnry. Mrs. Maria Catharine Andrew, widow of the late Charles M.
