A Traveler Rotates Two Experiences Ho Had With These Twisting Terrors?A Congregation of Them, Each of Which Was Nearly 1,000 Feet In Height.

Many pre the stories told of Sam Houston, the first president and after? ward the first representative from Texas. There was a stretch of country near Quiucy, Ills., known as the "Indian tract."

4' * ACCOMAC COURT-HOUSE, "VTA. Saturday, Junk 15, 1895. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomae O. H.. Va., as second-class matter. The commission merchants, of New York, advise the growers of Irish potatoes on the Eastern Shore "'to go slow" iu shipping them to market this season. In their opinion there is no need of haste, because in a short time the crop south of us except around Norfolk will have beeu dis posed of and therefore not in- compe tit ion with ours, and for the further reason, that never before as now, was quality so much insisted on and demanded by the buyers. The rea? sons given by them really mean one and the same thing, that potatoes sent to market by us now would be trash and tiiat the buyers, while willing to pay tor good potatoes, do not want and do not propose to pay much for the inferior article?and the truth of the above, we are pre pared to believe, because while in New York this week, we saw good potatoes which sold readily for $4 per barrel, when the inferi...

The new assessment of real estate will show, says the Roanoke World, a decrease of not less than thirty per cent, in that city, and a marked de? crease in every county from Lynch burg to Bristol and from Roanoke to the Maryland line. The country in eluded in this belt, generally regard? ed, we believe, as the richest in the State, would seem to indicate a seri ous deficiency in the revenues of the State, but the returns received at. Richmond show to the contrary, it is stated, and that an increase under the new assessment is expected, ac? counted for on the ground for the most part, because of the great gains in Tidewater Virginia.
