PRAISE FOR THE WEATHER CLERK His Predictions Arc More Accurate Than Is Commonly Supposed. The weather forecasts are sometimes complained of as being not very accu? rate. But it appears from the annual report of the meteorological council just issued that the failures are not so numer? ous as is generally supposed. A sum? mary of results shows the percentage to have been as follows: Complete success, 40; partial success. 33: partial failure, 14; total failure, 7. This gives a total per centage of successes of 79, which in a climate so variable as ours must be re? garded as a very fair average. Wo have on former occasions referred to the facilities afforded by the meteoro? logical office for inquiries about the weather. Any person applying at the office between It a. m. and 8 p. m. on week days and between 7 p. m. and 8 p. m. on Sundays can be supplied, in writing, with the latest information in the possession of the office and with the latest forecast issued for any specified distric...

accomac COURT-house, Va. Saturday, February 243 1894. Entered at the Postoflice at Accoiaac C. H.. Va., as second-class matter. The special message of Governor O'Ferrall to the General Assembly, on the oyster question, published in this issue, strengthens the good opin? ion which our people always enter? tained of him and which made them practically unanimous for him when he was a candidate for the high office now filled by him. It is an interest? ing paper and worthy the man. whose whole life has demonstrated how sa? credly he has always regarded Vir? ginia's honor and which has always shown the jealous care with which he has watched for, and defended her from, any encroachments upon her rights. Hut pleasing as the message is to every Eastern Shoreman, it can hardly fail to attract the attention of every Virginian and inspire them with the lofty sentiments it contains. Appealing as it doe* to the patriot? ism of every son of Virginia and pointing out as it does, so clearly the path...

LETTERS OF JUNIUS. Frcnh Testimony Showing That Thbir Au? thor Was Sir Fltilip Franc!?. An event of the first magnitude is about to take place.

The former of tho two lias at length been satisfactorily cleared up, and the proofs, based on re? cently discovered documents, will bo published in a volume to be issued short? ly by a great old firm, whose name will bo a guarantee of the genuineness of the discovery. The public will of course guess that this has been made through the mass of manuscripts of Sir Philip Francis, which came into the market some mouths back. In fact, it is said that the new matter discovered leaves no doubt whatever that Francis was tho author of the fa? mous letters. A grandson of Sir Philip is said to be still alive, and to have been a judge in Australia. The little clique of literary Australians assert that he is in so...

Impecunious Lovers. An engagement ring contracted for on the installment plan is now as common a business transaction as the fitting up of a boarding house on the same easy payment plan. There are several New York jewelry firms which do a prosperous business among prospective bridegrooms on the credit system. One of these is located on a promi? nent down town street. Engagement rings and wedding rings are here sold on credit, the weekly payment being 00 cents. At th is store the oth er day a bashful young man asked the chief clerk to show him some rings suitable to present to a young lady. 'Engagement ring, eh?' said the clerk in a confidential undertone.

$tiw?u?! ?i?irprise. accomac court-ho?se, Va. Saturday, March 10, 1894. Entered at the Postoffice at Aocomac C. H.. Va., as second-class matter. The Supreme Court of the Unitod States has before it the question of co-rights in Pocomoke Sound. That, the decision will be in the interests of Virginia we do not for a moment doubt. But, that will not by any means keep the Maryland dredgers out of Virginia limits. These oyster men have come to believe that it is a cardinal virtue to steal Virginia oys? ters. They are educated to it. Why, one of their statesmen has gone so far as to declare that, not only were reciprocal rights given in the Poto? mac and in Pocomoke sound, but that under the compact of 1785 they have the same rights down to the Capes of Virginia! Schooled as they are?and most willing to learn? these men will still continue to pur? sue their course of oyster robbing. The only surprise will be that they don't attempt to .scoop in Tangier and lay claim to every plant in even ...

Accomac Co?rt-House, Va. Saturday, March 17, iSfU. Entexed at the Postoffice at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. The Crisfield Leader stoutly de fends the claim that the dredgers lately captured by our oyster police force were taken in Maryland waters and proceeds to show what a clear case it has. When the case comes to a hearing the Leader will find their boasted innocency a very flimsy af? fair. We do not doubt that there are many right-minded citizens of Maryland who condemn the lawless acts of the marauders, who come by system to take and carry awav Vir ginia oysters,and we believe the Lend? er has "no sympathy with our (their) people who take the law in their own hands and dredge in Virginia wa? ters," and that it has "condemned it over and over again.'* But the fact remains that these acts of stealing are committed at every possible op? portunity.

BEWARE OF SOUTH AFRICA. One Who Has Tried It S:o?? It Is No Tluco For ? Man Jn Xewl of Work. I sailed from London J;m. 20,1S93, for Cape Town, returning the latter part of May, and was only too glad when I reached the States again. Miners think? ing of going to Johannesburg would do bettor by staying at home, even if times are very quiet here. The average of miners landing in Cape Town is about 10 weekly, and they are nearly all from England. They nearly all branch out for Johannesburg, and naturally the em plovers prefer an Englishman before an American, and you will find this in all brauches of business, professional or otherwise. The colored people do all the laborious work in the mines, and as for the positions the white man would take I suppose there are about 50 wait? ing for one opening. A good miner can earn $25 a week, and I think a good miner can earn moro here, and then again he can live considerably cheaper here. He would have to pay for board in Johannesburg about $10 w...

accomac COURT-HOUSE, Va. Saturday, March 24, 1804. Entered at the Post-office at Accomac C. H.. Va.. as second-class matter. Our friends of Tangier Island seem embittered against Onpt. Al. Reed of the oyster police boat Tangier. They have gone so far as to send a repre? sentative, backed by a petition, ask? ing his removal. They declare him afraid to meet the marauding Mary landers, and bring charges of dere? liction in duty. An investigation will, we doubt not, refute all the) charges against him. The maraud? ing lleet is very strong; armed with repeating riiies of large calibre, cap ableof throwing a ball two miles with effect,and well manned for resistance. Capt. Reed's schooner is not more than S5 tons. She is armed with riiies of much smaller calibre, of shorter range, and an old, condemn? ed Dahlgreen gun, which is more dangerous to his crew and ship than to the enemy?and is not so well manned. Besides his boat is weak? every discharge of the worthless Dahlgreen threatening he...
