AN UNLUCKY DEPUTATION. The Villntrers Followed thu Lead of tltc Mayor With Ludicrous Couxequ^neeit. On one occasion, while on a journey through Italy, the pope halted at a small village, theiuhabitautsof which resolved to send some of their principal men as a deputation to his holiness. The mayor, who was to head the deputation, pro? posed to present him with some of the chief produce of the country, consisting of pineapples, figs and cream. It was accordingly arranged that each member should carry some figs and cream in sil? ver basins, the pineapples, however, be? ing dispensed with. Before setting out the mayor thus ad? dressed his followers: "As you do not know very well how to conduct your? selves before exalted personages, you must watch me closely and do as I do." The procession was formed, with the mayor stalking majestically in front, furnished, like his followers, with a ba? sin of figs in his left hand and another of cream in his right. There was a step down into the room...

Accomac Court-House, Va. Saturday, March 31, L894, Entered at the Postoffice at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. The condition of our public roads demands that the supervisors take as immediate steps as possible for their proper working. We use tin word "proper" advisedly. The old system was by far too costly?be? cause it utterly failed to meet the ends desired. We cannot afford such miserable roads as we now have. They are too costly in whatever light viewed. The expenditure of a good sum, under proper and well-directed guidance, will in the end be ??heap. No county needs good roads more than we do. No county has its roads in more constant use by pleasure ve hide or draft wagon, than ours does. It is a good sign that some parts of the country are awakening. Read this: "Tho citizens of Colbert county, Ala., have voted to expend ?200,000 in the construction of pikes andpub lie highways. They are acting on the assumption that good roads will develop a country more rapidly t...

This doc? ument contained a clause to the effect that his lordship should retain on the premises the landlord's housemaid named White, the former paying her 3 shillings per week for washing and beer and half her wages (?22 per annum), besides pro? viding her with board. Shortly after his lordship and his servants took up their abode at 40 Lowudes square the Earl of Clancarty sent the butler to the house? maid with an order to make a fire in Lady Clancarty's room. White replied that it was not her place to carry coal while an ablebodied foct man was in the house. Eventually, however, she did light the...

A Buddhist "Life of Christ" of im? mense interest to the religious world has been discovered iu a monastery iu Tibet 1 y Nicholas Notovitch, a Russian traveler. He tried vainly to negotiate for its purchase. Ho happened to break a leg and was taken to a monastery. While there a Lama read to him tho precious record, which was in the Pali language, and Notovitch took down a full translation. Clu-ist is known to the Buddhists as the prophet Issa. This is a brief summary of his life: Issa was born of Jewish parents. He was poor, but belonged by birth to a family of exalted piety which had for? gotten its former greatness on earth, magnified the Creator and thanked him for the misfortunes with which he was pleased to try them. From his childhood he preached one GotL On coining of age, 18, instead of marrying, he fled from his father's house and wont with merchants to Sind. At 1-1 he was living a...

It was so satisfac? tory to the protectionists that the Republican leader of the N. Y. State Senate got that body to pass a resolu? tion thanking him for it and Senator Hoar has echoed tho Republican plaudit by reading the resolutions in the United States Senate. Recalling his famous utterance in connection therewith, '"1 am a Democrat/' it looks as if, like another, '"who was a better Democrat than Den iiill" be might be like he was when he uttered it, well on his way to the Republican camp.

REPORTING SPEECHES IN CONGRESS. Stenographen Abi? to Stake Big Money During Debate* In the Houses. It is true that there are 20 or SO more numbers in congress tlniu there were a few years ago, but a change has come over the spirit of debate. Long winded speeches are rarer; men talk quicker and say more The incessant agitation of the tariff has been an education in fig? ures, and if a man makes a wild state? ment he is promptly contradicted. A stenographer who can report the house debate is at the top of his profes? sion, mid there is no more promotion for him. The men who do this work earn incomes that would make the average professional man turn green with envy, for when congress is not in session they are in demand at the highest figures to report the most important matters. There was a man in Washington once, a good many years ago, who through bad habits had lost every faculty he had except that of writing shorthand not only as fast as people could talk, but as fast as they could...

accomac court-house, Va. Saturday, April 21, 1894. Entered at the Postofflee at Accomac C. H., Va., as second-class matter. The House of Representatives adopted a rule last Tuesday to obtain a quorum for the transaction of busi? ness by counting: those present who refain from voting, and it is to the disgrace of the Democrats of that body that such action was necessary. The Democrats have in present House 218 of the 356 members, a ma? jority large enough to control it as they desire, and that enough, of them by their absence should make the adoption of such a rule necessary, is strange and beyond the comprehen? sion of the people whose servants they are and the people if true to themselves will see that the absentees are retired to private life. It is grat? ifying to note in this connection that our representative is not one of them ?he is reported as always at his post of duty. The new rule, however, though necessary, is not popular and forty seven Democratic votes art recorded aga...

What ft New XorU Itcporte* Found Out on His Strange Assignment, It was Sunday evening, about 9 by the clock, and the usual calm of that oue night in the week brooded over The Press office. A stranger entered. Hesitatingly he thrust forth a little pack of grimy cards written ou with ink and rapidly said: "Gentlemen, I'm a writer of jokes. I've got some here I want to sell. I'm desperately hard up. It's a horrible"? The little man stopped short. "Are you a professional jo?ah?hu? morist?" asked a reporter. "Yes, sir," said the stranger. "At any rate, I was a month ago. Now I don't know what I urn." He spoke the last sentence with a half groau. Then the visitor continued: "Seven years ago I was employed as a railway clerk. I had a little turn for writing 'funny' paragraphs. So I left railroad? ing. I've written jokes and paragraphs and verses for nearly every paper there ? is in town.

|8cmnsi!?! ifiuiwisc. accomac court-house, Va. Saturday, ApbIl 28, 1804. Entered at the Postofflce at Accoinac c. H., Va., as second-class matter. Capt. A. J. Reed is no longer the commander of the oyster police schooner Tangier, to the surprise, re? gret and indignation of many of the citizens of Accomae. He has been retired by the Board of the Chesa? peake and its Tributaries, it seems, upon charges of citizens of Tangier Island merely, and in utter disregard of the wishes of all the other people of the county. He has been dis? missed from the service, it seems, without the formality of an investi? gation even, if the statement of the Richmond Times, "that the Grovern or says, that no action hail been taken in regard to the charge- pre? ferred against Captain Reed'" can be accepted as correct. A gallant offi? cer, endorsed by the officials of the county because of his efficiency, ap? proved of by the people, because of his vigilance, is thus summarily dis? posed of, why? The answe...
