Yeaiuan, then congressman from Kentucky, called upon iiim and thus describes the occasion in thtf New York Tribune: "The president was alone at his desk, hard at work, and the congressman promptly offered to retire and call again. " 'No,' said Lincoln, 'sit down. I'll be through shortly.' "Presently his little son partly opened the door. 'Papa,' said lie, 'mamma says the company will soon assemble.' "The congressman rose. 'Please be seated; we'll get to it directly,' said Lincoln. "He continued his work. His face was very grave; it showed anxiety and melancholy indescribable. Disasters had come in the field, and it was not all harmony among his supporters. Very soon his barber came in, and again the congressman offered to retire. " 'No,' said Lincoln; 'just excuse me one moment.' He got up, threw off his coat, seated himself in one ...

Volume 1, Number 72. RIGHT LIVELY TIME TWO CIRCUSES AND COURT DAY IN ONE WEEK. The Elephant will Walk Around, the Bands will Play, and Red Lemo. liade will be the Feature of the Day. The week beginning August 20 promises to bo a lively one in this place. Monday, the 21st, will be County Court day—and it will be " watermelon court" at that. On Wednesday and Thursday wo shall have circuses,and these without sufficient intermission to allow folks time to get home and back so as to take in both. This will be especially hard on the "30-milers," who always attend the circus from away off in the Blue Ridge and the Alleghany range, or from the "end of the world" in the fastnesses of the ''Gap." We see no way of relief for these people except to make the necessary preparations to come here and camp. Nor need they be disturbed about "feed," for they can get plenty of ;'hoss" cakos, red lemonade and watermelons. As a regular diet this may not be just the thing, but " who cares for expenses " w...

The Evening News. MONDAY, JULY 31, 1599. He Answered It. The following story is told of how Thomas B. Reed was admitted to the bar in California: Mr. Heed was being examined as to his qualilications for the law along with several companions. The question "Was the legal tender act, in your opinion, constitutional?" was asked of the candidate sitting next to Mr. Beed. The young man hesitated, as well he might, for even the justices of the supreme court had spent many weary days hearing arguments on that particular question, and after once deciding that it was unconstitutional afterward reversed their decision. While the young man hesitated, the judge turned to Mr. Beed, saying, "What do you think, Mr. Beed—was the act constitutional ?" "It was," replied Mr. Beed, without a moment's hesitation. "Very good," was the reply; "you are admitted to the bar. Any man who can answer offhand a question that is still puzzling the supreme court of the United States is certainly pre-eminently quali...

KEEZLETOWN, July 31.— On last Saturday night your correspondent and his family were awakened by the sweet music which was being sung by a half dozen or more of the fair sex and their escorts, of our little town. To be sure our girls and boys are welcome when they come in this way, as we have the champion voices in our little village. Quite a number of our young people attended the lawn party at Mill Creek Saturday night. Miss Josle Krager, of Baltimore, is the guest of Miss Lizzie Harrison, of near our town. Mr. Otis Landis and Miss Mary Long are now the subjects of our congratulations. They were made to join their right hands in the oonds of matrimony on Sunday last. Mr. John Dorman, we are glad to learn, is improving, but Mrs. Mary Dorman is very sick at this writing. Prof. Biixton has been chosen to...

The Evening News. PUBLISHED DAILY (EXCEPT SUNDAYS) BY ROB'T B. SMYTHE. Entered in the Postoftlce at Harrisonburg as second-class matter.! TUESDAY, AUGUST 1,1899. THE STEIKE SIXUATION. The Cleveland street-car strike still remains unsettled, and no attempt at a settlement of the trouble appears to be at hand or even attempted. Corporations that can place themselves under the protection of military force do not generally appear to be anxious for a settlement upon any terms than their own, and' all know how liberally they act toward employees when the corporations dictate the terms of settlement themselves. Two regiments of soldiers suppressing workingmen in free America is not a pleasing sight, and to reflecting minds present forebodings of the direst character. We can only hope that some wise heads may find a solution of the problem by which strikes may be prevented and corporations restrained in their greedy exactions—for this is really the bottom cause of strike troubles. The Cleve...

The Evening News. TUESDAY, AUGUST 1, 1899. fELLOW FEVER STRIKES VETEANS. Dreaded Disease Invades Hampton's Soldiero' Home. Newport News, Va., July 31.—There are 30 cases of what is believed to be genuine yellow fever at the National Soldiers' Home near Hampton, and three deaths from the disease were reported yesterday. There were several other deaths at the institution on Saturday, but it cannot be stated that all of them were caused by yellow fever. Newport News and Hampton are quarantined against the. Soldiers' Home. The government authorities at. Old Point had already adopted this step, and no street cars are allowed to enter the reservation. Qusyantine Officer Hobson, of this port, went to the home last night and verified the statements made above. While no one outside of the soldiers home knew anything about the existence of yellow fever until yesterday, it is said that the disease made its appearance three days ago. The most rigid quarantine regulation* will be enforced to pre...

The Evening News. Volume 1, Number 74. BIDS CALLED FOR. A NEW SEWERAGE SYSTEM NOW CERTAIN. The City Council Last Night Decided on a Proposition to Cost About $17,000. Ia the city council last night the whole sewerage question was discussed, viewed and reviewed. The matter of building a complete system of sewerage for this city has for a long time engaged the attention of the more thoughtful of our citizens, but the fear of the great cost has acted as a deterrent and the discussloa of the matter has been approached in a very conservative way. Those favoring the proposition to provide sewerage hesitated to discuss the matter publicly, as they were likely to be charged with being visionary or probably radloal. Hence it was talked of rather quietly before assuming shape or active form. But progress born of necessity will always brush away the barriers that may hedge up its movements, and so in this case. The people generally became convinced of the necessity of a sewerage system for thi...

The Evening News* PUBLISHED DAILY (EXCEPT SUNDAYS) BY ROB'T B. SMYTHE. Entered in the Postofflce at Harrisonburg as secoud-clasa matter.! WEDENSDAY, AUGUST 3, 1899. At this season when so many Confederate Veteran reunions are being held all around us, it is proper to look over the lists and see how many are left of those noble soldiers, who by heroism and great sacrifices have made forever famofts the Southern soldier. Such a statement will not only furnish food for reflection, but will be a subject for conversation whore the old boys are assembled around their camp fires. A recent examination of the list of Confederate Generals, shows that out of the nineteen lieutenant generals but seven survive: of eighty-one major generals, sixteen live, while but ninety-two of the brigadier survive. To sum-' marine it, 145 of the 4(53 Confederate generals officers are still living. West Virginia has one of the number, Gen. John A. McCausland, of Mason county. Admiral Dewey again demonstrated hi...

The Evening News. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2, 1899 A Vindictive Reptile. The fer-de-lance is found on the lstands of Martinique and Santa Lucia, where the natives counteract its virus tvith a decoction of jungle hemlock, and the basis of its grewsome reputation seems to be the fact that it does not warn the intruders of its haunts, after the manner of the cobra or the rattlesnake, but flattens its coils and, with slightly vibrating tail, awaits events. If the unsuspecting traveler should show no sign t>f hostile intent, he may be allowed to pass unharmed within two yards of the coiled matadore, but a closer approach is apt to be construed as a challenge, and the vivoron, suddenly rearing its ugly head, may scare the trespasser into some motion of self defense—lie may lift his foot or brandish his stick in a menacing manner. If he lie is lost. The lower coils will expand, bringing the business end, neck and all, a few feet nearer; the head "points" like a leveled rifle, then dart...

All this time, when the eyes of all ure looking forward to the national political contest of next year, there is a great deal of search being made by the political parties for suitable timber to place in their platforms. The people know what they want, aud this is lust what the politicians are trying to find out. There is a good deal of quiet thinking going on just now among the sovereigns. It is the party organs that are doing the bellowing. U. S.

The Evening News. THURSDAY, AUGUST 1801). A SENSE OF PROPORTION. Potent Factor It May Become la til* Problem of Life. "I am trying to cultivate a sense of humor and a sense of proportion," I heard a clever woman say the other day, "and you have no idea what a wonderful help they are to me." I have since had a practical illustration of the potent factor that the latter sense may become in the problem of life, and now I fairly appreciate her statement of the power of proportion. Having lingered very late over a more than usually fascinating game of chess the night before, I was beguiled into an extra nap in the morning, making me late for the early train which I wished to catch in order to keep an important appointment in town. As the sky was lowering, indicating rain, I pulled out a pair of old shoes ancj did not discover until I was at the breakfast table that a little nail in one of them had come through the inner sole and was piercing my lie&l. It was too late to chang...

The above item appeared in yesterday's Evening News, and in about thirty minutes after its publication Mr. J. Wilton, a member of the city counpil, called at our office and demanded an explanation and retraction, stating that he considered it a personal insult. Now, the publisher of the Evening News, being busy looking after the new plant, knew nothing of this item until his attention was called to it by Mr. Wilton, and it perhaps would not have appeared had it been noticed. However that may be, we can see nothing so serious in the matter as to call for an apology, although the Evening News will always give to S every person the advantage of the doubt, and make all possible amend...
