Ilminsttk Enterprise. ACCOM AC COURT-HOUSE, YA.: ! 0 , v i SATURDAY, : : APRIL 5, 18S4 Entered at the Postoffice at Accontac ' 0. H.. Va.. as second-class matter. Mob violence prevailed in Cincinuatti on Friday and Saturday of last week and resulted in the loss of the lives of forty-one of her citizens and in the wounding of from one hundred and twenty to two hundred more of them. It grew out of the failure of the jury to do their duty in the case of Wm. Berner, a youtL of eighteen, who, assisted by a negro, had murdered Wm. H. King, his employer and robbed him of three hundred and fifteen dollars. The evidence on the trial was so conclusive, the boy having acknowledged that he committed the crime and the object for which he did it, that escape from the gallows seemed impossible.— But the jury disregarding law and the facts in case brought in a verdict of manslaughter and this flagrant act of theirs led first to an indignation meeting and then to an attack on the jail, which being r...

Education Needed on the farm, A hired 111:111 once said to me: "You are tlie best hand at guessing I ever saw!" I told him there wojdd he over six loads of liny to get up, hut not quite seven, lie made the remark when we were going to the barn with the seventh load not quite full. Now, there was no guess work about it. I knew the width of the strip cut, from the number of swaths, each of which were six feet. I knew how wide the rake was, and how many rake-fills we could put on a load. So, after.raking once down through the piece, a little mental arithmetic told how many loads there would be. One can tell how much a man ought to plow or harrow in a day. 1 remember once that I Went away, to begoneallday,lea\'i»ga new hand to harrow a piece of land for wheat.

The tongue becomes confused with its triple choice of pronouns and flr.ps helplessly around the palate.

We do not know who is the writer of the letter in the State of the 17th; headed "Political Persecutions in Accomae," but knowing as we do that Judge Parramore is by no* means a partizan judge who would be guilty of "infamous, malignant, petty persecution" toward a political opponent, or would "gratify his personal and political spleen" by any official act, we feel it our duty to protest against the violent charges'brought by "R. U. D." It is very true that Mr. Wescott, together with three other "tardy" jurors, was fined by the Judge. The continual tardiness of jurors, and others, had beeu commented on at several courts by him, and he finally determined to enforce prompt attendance. Unfortunately for Mr. W. he happened to be one of those who came late—after court recess, not its opening-with no adequate excuse and he was p...

"A smiling wife and a cheerful home—a paradise would be!" said Andrew to himself, as he turned his e.ves from the clouded lace of Mrs Lee and sat down with knitting brows ancl moody aspect, Not a word was spoken by either. Mrs. Lee was getting'supper, and she moved about with a weary step. "Oome," said she at last, with a side glance at her husband. There was invitation in the word only; none in the voice of Mrs. Lee. Andrew arose and weut to the table. He was tempted to speak an angry word, but controlled himself and kept silent. He could not find no fault with the chop and homemade bread nor the fragrant tea. They would have cheered his inward man if there had been only a gleam of sunshine 011 the face of his wife. He noticed that she did not eat.
