The Evening News. THURSDAY, JUNE 59,1899. HANGED BY THE NECK. One who Underwent tbe Operation Dencrlbea the Sen»atlons. In The Wide World Magazine Richard flicks, an old time actor, tells of his narrow escape from being hanged on the stage of the Queen's theater, Dublin. He was playing the part of Achmet, a particularly villainous character, who after a long career of crime is, to the general satisfaction of the audience, captured by two British eoldiera and promptly hanged. "One night, while struggling with my captors, the rope slipped from my shoulders and knotted itself around my neck just as I was being hauled upl" says Mr. Hicks. "Never shall I forget that awful moment. Directly I felt the tug at my neck I gave a convulsive kick and tried to shout 'Stop!' but the word could not escape from my twitching lijisl I could only make a gurgling noise. Frantically I kicked and struggled. Pain there was none, strangely enough, beyond a choking, suffocating sensation, and I could hear th...

The Evening News. Volume 1, Number 47. flag of the old tenth. John T. "Wilkins the Only Living Sur- vivor who Carried It in Battle. One of the Tenth Regiment battle flags and one carried in a number of battles during the Civil War by Sergeant Gabriel Shank, of Dale Enterprise, is now in the possession of his daughter, as has been stated to us, Mrs. Alice Geil, of Singers Glen. "Gabe" Shank was as brave and gallant a man as ever engaged in battle, is well remembered by all survivors of the famous old Tenth, and was shot down as a distinctive mark because he carried the rogimental Bag, which is always a post of danger. When he fell the flag he bore, if we mistake not, was seized by Mr. John T. Wilkins, of this city, and borne with equal gallantry in the front of the regiment. Mr. W. is yet living, is as modest as he was brave, and though incapacitated from active work as a printer by paralysis of the nerves of his eyes, yet such brave men deserve well of their countrymen, and we menti...

The Evening News* PUBLISHED DAILY (EXCEPT SUNDAYS) BY BOB'T B. SMYTHE. Entered to the Postoftlce at Harrisonburg as second-class matter.! FRIDAY, JUNE 30, 1899. KOBE GOOD SOADS AGITATION. The subject of good roads is attracting more attention throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia now than at any time in the past history of the State. Agitation of this supremely important matter will compel people to think, and thought will lead to action. To a very large extent upon good roads all the year round depends the prosperity and development of the entire State, and no one who is capable df thinking can conclude otherwise. On both sides of the Blue Ridge the people are becoming more and more interested in this subject, and the Evening News does not propose to stop agitation of the matter until good roads shall be an universal and accomplished fact instead of an exception. In the Orange Observer of yesterday we find this paragraph : "Do not let us forget the good roads question but continu...

The Evening News. FRIDAY, JUNE ,10,1899. CHARLIE'S INFAMY. The Brute's App«"l»* Cruelty to Hla ThonKlitU'B* Bride. There is a certain Chicago bride wlio recently decided that her husband was an unfeeling brute and went home to mother for a peculiar and unusual reaeon. The mother was awakened just before dawn one morning last week by a sound of sobbing and weeping outside her own sleeping room door. Her horror and astonishment at discovering her, only daughter in the depths of apparent desolation and despair can well be imagined. "Charlie was cru-u-u-el to me," wailed the bride of a month or thereabouts mournfully, "and so I came home." "But what did Charlie do—the wretch!" inquired the mother, ready to blame the husband on general principles. To this question, however, the bride returned no answer save bitter weeping. Then the mother, feeling that the case was beyond her, administered a nerve restorative and awoke the bride's father. "Now, my child," began this individual, speaking ...

The Evening News* PUBLISHED DAILY (EXCEPT SUNDAYS) BY ROB'T B. SMYTHE. Entered Id the Postoflice at Harrisonburg as second-class matter.] SAUURDAY; JULY 1, 1899. ANNANIAS BROUGHT TO MIND. Those journals that are constantly proclaiming silver free coinage is a "dead" issue must have a 'corner' on wind or little regard for the danger of splitting their windpipes. If it be a heresy to b;lieve in free silver coinage there area powerful sightot heretics in existence. This free silver heresy seems to be a hard thing to kill, since for more than a year past they have daily proclaimed that it was dead, and yet when one st.irs around among the people the woods are found to be about as full of them as ever, if not slightly more so. There are people who are ungracious enough to begin to believe that such newspapers are guilty of the vice for which it is said one Annanias was struck dead. We may believe differently from the proclaimers as to the demise of the free silver issue, but yet we would...

Volume 1, Number 49. SHACKLETTS WILL UP BEFORE THE CIRCUIT COURT ON SATURDAY. This Celebrated Case Will Now (Jo to the Court of Appeals for Final Adjudication. This case, which was before the special term of the Circuit Court on Saturday, is so full of complications that it is difficult to give its status without giving a lengthy detail of its inception and progress. Before his death Samuel Shaoklett had had prepared a will in which he made distribution of his large estate. This will had been made known to the family, but after his death no will eould be found nor has it been found to this day. So careful and methodical a business man was he that there was but little to do to settle up h'is estate, vast as it was. For what reason it is not known, but it is supposed that be destroyed the will he had made, and proposed to let the law adjust an equitable distribution of his estate under the Virginia Statutes. No will being found his son, Henry Shacklett, would be natural beneficiary an...

After a most stormy session, threatenIng- at times to break up in a general melee and froe fight, the Democratic State Convention of Kentucky nominated Hon. Wm. Goebel,of Covington, for Governor. His record reads so much like a romance that one can scarcely believe he is a citizen of Kentucky. He was born in Pennsylvania and is 38 years of age, but it is mysterious how he could have so long been a resident of Kentucky and have preserved so many commendable characteristics, as related below: He does not smoke or drink. He is the enemy of trusts and corporations. He has killed his man. An agnostic, he keeps up his dead mother's membership in the church she belonged to. Without a collegiate education, he has been the active partner of two of the greatest lawyers of recent times in Kentacky: Ex-...

The.Evening News. MONDAY, JULY 3,1899. Traveling? In'Alaikn. I have seen many pictures of the manner In which the Eskimos travel, and the man is generally seated comfortably on the sled cracking a whip, and the dogs are going at a smart gallop. But we snon found that picture to be a delusion and a snare. Journeying in the arctic regions consists mostly in pushing behind the sled, for the poor little animals frequently have to be helped over the rough places and in going up hill or any rise in the ground. Where there is no beaten trail—as was the case most of the distance we traveled—the dogs have nothing to guide them, and one man is obliged to run ahead. He generally runs some distance and then walks until the head team comes up with him, when he runs on again. When the snow is hard and the road level, the dogs, with an average load, will maintain a trot which is too fast for a man to walk and not so fast as he can run. By alternately running and walking one does not become greatly...

Yes, the Evening News celebrated the great national holiday at Bridgewater, and a gala day it was all around, barring the dußt, but American patriotism cannot be suppressed by minor incidents such as that, for ever since the days of 1776, when the old liberty bell In the spire of old Independence Hall in Philadelphia rang out its glad peal proclaiming the independence of the United States, as the years have sped away the spirit of '79 broadened and deepened, until today it is regarded as a sacred trust that our great national holiday shall be celebrated. All around us and in almost all directions celebrations were going on yesterday. The Evening News could not attend all of these, so thinking over as to where we would most likely meet the largest number of old and new friends we selected Bridgewater as our Mecca and accordingly wen...

The Chicago Tribune a stalwart Republican journal of tbe Lincoln and Garfield variety, says Secretary Gage has been guilty of sophistry in his defense of the president's civil service order, and bas yielded to tho blandishments of the spoilsmen. It adds: "Mr. Gage has undertaken a large contract in attempting to defend the order and those behind it. His say-so will not sufflse, nor will any of the sophistical arguments he has thus far brought forward. The people are convinced that the object has not been for the good of the service, but the advantage of the jobmasters and professional placehucksters. It has recently been circulated, probably for some purpose, that our distinguished friend, Hon. Mark Hanna, is about to retire from the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee and consequent control of that party orga...

The Evening News. WEDNESDAY. JULY 6,1899. JIMTOWN'S CONVERSIONS. A Clarch at St. Joneph Where Slave* Got Religion Under Orders. Jim town is not on the new map of Missouri. Before the war it was the only suburb of St. Joseph. It was a stone building back in the woods from ttte big road. At certain seasons it was occupied five days in the week as a schoolhouse. It was for rent on Sunday to ?ny denomination that wanted it for church purposes. But the original purpose of the building was to have a place to convert negroes who were hired out by their owners. There were several plantations in that neighborhood on which negroes from Virginia and Maryland were colonized. A few men owned nearly all the slaves in the country and let them to people who were not financially able to own sucli property or who found it cheaper to hire than own. Whatever crime was committed in St. Joseph or its county, at that time, was always charged to a negro, and if an arrest was made the negro suffered, and so...

Montezuma, July 4.—As this ia the great day among the uational holidays we will try to celebrate it by jotting down a few dots from this section. Our mail service is still very much topsy-turvey, and yet we hear that the postmaster at Harrisonburg reports the system as doing well. We are certainly unable to see how ho can do so, as the people on every line are outspoken in their denunciation of the scheme. Is Mr. Punkhouser responsible for it? It looks very much that way. We are informed that some parties at Linville waote to the Department asking to have free delivery established in their suction. An inspector was sent there to investigate the matter, but found it would not work thero. Why should it work here if it would not do there? We suppose Mr. Punkhouser can answer the question best, as he was the inspector's escort through th...

An eminent physician and yellow fever expert committed suicide the other day, because, it Is said, he thought that his services to the Government in the late war with Spain were not sufficiently appreciated. Unfortunate, weak and erring man! The man who labors in a good cause for other than the joy he himself get out of it, only sells his good deeds. He deceives himself if he thinks a generous feeling moves him. you sell your good deeds when you look for either gratitude or emolument to flow from them.

Of those injured, 627 were hurt by cannon crackers, 113 by toy cannon, 69 by powder explosions, 59 by skyrockets, 143 by guns and revolvers, and 15 by stray bullets. Spain continu...
