The Evening News* 1; MONDAY, JULY 24, ISO 9. THE PROFESSOR'S PRIZE. It Was Something He Conld Beat, bat It Got the Best of Him. One evening last winter one of Adelbert's popular professors attended a social function where the guests played progressive pedro, n game in which the worthy educator lays no claim to being an expert. In fact, on the present occasion he was credited with but two progressions, a score of really astonishing sirialluess. Naturally, what is termed the "booby prize" fell to him, and this time it took the form of a double yolk egg, with the following sarcastic legend attached: "Something you can beat."

He was a great money earner, but a poor money saver. For perhaps 30 years his income was immense, but others have had the benefit of all that he earned in the law and in lecturing.

The messenger boys of New York are on a strike, and their force has been augmented by the boys of the American District Telegraph Company. There seems to be an epidemic of strikes at this time. It is strange that there should "be so many strikes in vogue, in view of the fact that prosperity is permeating all sections of the country just now. We also read in the morning dispatches that the news boys of Cincinnati have joined the messenger boys' strike in that city. With the streetcar and ore-handlers strikes in Cleveland, in the puddling mills at Pittsburg, telegraph messengers and news boys in New York, of the messenger and news boys in Cincinnati, of streetcar men in New York and Brooklyn, and of 10,000 tailors in New York City, and a late strike at Richmond—all of these show that there is wide spread ...

"It is not," I replied. "Is it yours?" ho asked one of the girls. "No, sir," she replied. "Is it yours?" he asked the young man. "Let me see," he said with the hesitation of a liar who is not an adept at the art, "I —I—l believe it is mine. Yes, that's mine." He took it and looked guilty, though he did his best to appear innocent. "I didn't know you had a bundle with you," remarked one of his female companions in a low tone.

The Humanitarian states that in 10,000 villages of Russia there is not a school, and it is estimated that less than 20 per cent of the population of the empire has acquired the slightest rudiments of common school education. These conditions demonstrate that Russia exceeds all other countries, claiming to be civilized, in illiteracy. Andrew Carnegie gives some shrewd and sensible observations on his retirement from active business. He determined long ago, he says, not to spend his old age "struggling after more dollars." After a man is sixty he should "develop a dignified and unselfish life." Tho possession of $100,000,000 is a great help to rational philosophy of this kind, but not many Americans are equal to it even when rich "beyond the dreams of avarico." In 1634, the Massachusetts goneral court passed restricting sumpt...

At "dawn the shrleKS and cries of a man in agony aroused the inmates of the camp, who ran out to learu the cause. "The man was gesticulating wildly and calling for help, whiled he squirmed and writhed and slapped bis face and neck and chest and legs in a mad effort to slap himself all ever at once. He was standing in the midst of an army of ants and was too distracted with pain to run away. Then he did exactly what a panther or leopard does when he is being overcome. The man threw himself to the ground to roll his tormentor to death. A single active white man could have saved the poor wretch, but the stupefied, barelegged coolies dared not, or thought not, of rescue, while the victim himself was too crazed with agony to seek other than instant relief. From a slight personal experience I know the poor fellow was burning in a tire which would take hours to kill him. "Finally a bystander regained ...

Volume 1, Number 71. C. & W. EXTENSION. THE PROSPECTS ARE NOW MOST ENCOURAGING. After Long Delay It Now Seems Certain this Road Will Soon be Completed. An outlet to the Valley and thence to the sea, has been for manv years an abssrbing thought with the more prominent and thinking business men of Pendleton County, W. Va, and of Highland County, Va., both of which adjoin this county on the west. After all of these years the prospect of a realization of their and dreams becomes clearer, and we now believe that the present movements in the way of railway combinations will result in securing to our neighbors a railroad through Rockingham into Pendleton County, and it may be Highland also, bringing their large trade not only into the Valley, but giving them speedy access to the sea, with all the minerals, metals, lumber, live stock, etc., that they can produce or desire to place quick'y in market. So often have these hopes been imposed upon by wild-cat schemes, that they will ...

Those persons at the North who are forever harping on Southern disorders and lawlessness might find even graver social problems in their own section and in the West, if they would turn their eyes in those directions. As for mere disorder and violence, there have been more manifestations of this sort in New York, Brooklyn and Cleveland within the last 12 days than have occurred in the South within the last 20 mars. The outbreaks in the South, deplorable as they may be, are sporadic, and are generally uprisings against criminals of the worst kind. They do not affect or represent the whole population or any large proportion of any class of the population. Neither do these outbreaks suggest economic dangers that threaten the very foundations of society as at present organized. The South can and will control mob...
