tili? Accomac Court House, Va. ^Saturday, April 11,189G. Entered at the Postoffice at Accomac C. H.. Va.. as second-class matter. The public school question is one in which our readers generally are so much interested, that no apology is nesessary for the encroachment on our space, which we have permitted this week in publishing the corres? pondence on the subject which ap? pears in another column. It is right, too, that the people should know their friends, and it will be very grat ifying to them to be informed, that the authorities of one railroad in the State are not disposed to avail them? selves of a mere technicality to de? prive the public schools of the State of revenues which rightfully belong to them. That the presidents of other railroads in the State will ar? rive at the conclusion, which Mr. In galls has, judging by their conduct in such matters in the past', is how. ever not to be expected, but it is gratifying to be able to gather from the correspondence that the educ...

?mmm (fcnterjinse. Accomac Court House, Va. Saturday, April 18,1896. Entered at the Postoffiee at Accomac C. H.. Va.. as second-class matter The commission merchants of Bal? timore, through our columns this week, submit their views on the bar? rel question, and in such a plain and practical way that no shipper of pro? duce can fail to comprehend what they mean, or what is expected of them if they want the best returns for their produce?and it is to be hoped, that our farmers will be wise enough to profit by the advice which is given them. Indeed, no other course seems tobe left to them but to use barrels of fair and uniform size, and none others in our opinion ought to be used, or for the most part will be used, unless the same returns are made for a pony as for a fair barrel of produce. The birthday of Thomas Jefferson was honored on last Monday by a gathering of prominent Democrats at Monticello from all sections of the country.

THE CZAR'S BODYGUARD. Will General Toherevln'l Death End One Flmso of IvUMsitin Despotism? The death of General Tcherevin is an event of some importance, inasmuch as it is expected to lead to tlio discontinu? ance of the special institution which the late genera! represented, and which, in fact, he may be said to have created ?the special guard, composed of a vari? ety of persons known and unknown, in? cluding the police of the imperial resi? dence, for the protection of the person of the czar. At least it is rumored that the late general is not likley to have a suc? cessor in exactly the same position un? der the present young czar, and indeed the condition of affairs now is so differ? ent from that which led to the creation of this extraordinary position in tho c:urly ye;irs of the last reign that in all probability its continuance in its pres? ent form will he considered unneccs s;uy.

Mitsuis dutrprkf. Accomac Court House, Va. Saturday, April 25,1S9G. Entered at the Postofflce at Accomac O. H.. Va.. as second-class matter. The Republicans of Virginia, met in Convention in Stauuton. ou Thursday, for the purpose of choosing four delegates-at large to the St. Louis Convention, and transacting other business. The work before it, seems to suggest that the meeting will be a stormy one and that the fun will be lively before its labors are ended. The questions of selecting a colored man as one of the five dele gates-at-large will be ? one of the perplexing ones, and likely to cause trouble, when the elTort is made to sidetrack him which is probable. A big fight is expected over the chair manship between the followers and opponents of Col. Lamb. Two sets of delegates elected from the Second district will knock for admittance and one will have to be conciliated before the other is taken in. It looks now as if it would not be easy to harmonize these, and their other past di...

HUNTING PERUVIAN GAME. An EnRllahman'H Account of His Fine .Spurt In the Highlands. Hunting iu the highlands of Peru is a very enjoyable if little known sport, ac? cording to an Englishman "who Spent some days hunting from 15,000 to 1S, 000 feet above the sea on grassy plains or in valleys snrronnded by high moun? tains. " There is considerable small game?snipe, ducks, culi culi (a kind of grouse) and quivio (a kind of guinea fowl)?but the game a sportsman uut fur a day or two seeks is vicuna and al? paca. The vicuna is the wild llama and is a eby animal with great vitality, re? quiring neck or shoulder shots to kill. The alpaca is the mountain vicuna, liv? ing on the coarse and scanty forage of its home region. Its wool is a foot long, but so curly and lino that it tits to its body like a darky's hair. Both are relat? ed closely to the guanaco of the Pata? gonia deserts, which sometimes wanders into the uplands of Pern. The Englishman carried a -14-40 American rifle and a 10 gaugo ...

Accomac Court House, Va. Saturday, May 9, 1890. Entered at the Postofflee at Aceomac C. H.. Ya.. as second-class matter. The losses sustained by three of our townsmen by the fire at Accomac C. H., last Monday night calls forth the warmest sympathy cf all the citizens of our town and vicinity and many doubtless would be glad of the oppor? tunity to help them in some other ?way. The citizens who have suffered though are among the most enterpris ing and industrious of the county, who have faced difficulties before and surmounted them and will have the pluck, doubtless to do so again, even if their earnings have been so largely swept away from them in a night. It is to be hoped, at least, that all may see their way clear to resume their business again soon, and that those who have escaped the misfortune which has overtaken them, may be ready to extend the helping hand to them. William McKinley, Jr., of Ohio, was the choice of the Republicans of Illinois, at their convention held last wt...
