Drs. White and Smooker iaepeeted many of these oases on last Wednesday and iBnding the disease well developed, bnt fortunately in a mild form, they, the next day, reported the ra* suits of their investigation to the county clerk of Shenandoah. , Thai ofBoial phnnptly notMed Dr. Hsakel. who resides in New Market in this end of the county, and requested bin to examine cases within his reach wbioh had not been seen by the other physicians. Accordingly Dr. Henkel made a trip Friday through a portion of Lee district ttid his inspeotion of oaeea but oonfinned the report of his fellow physioians; He saW one ease, that of Samuel Wellard, at farmer living one and one- half miles southwest of For� restville, in which the patient was very low with the disease. It is learned on good authority that Dr. Fahmey, who lives in Plains dis> triot, this county, came across snwU-poxafewdaye ago when across the line in Shenandoah attending to practice.. He is represented as fssling no hesitapoy in pronouncing saveral eases Xby him over there to be well-de-ped cases of smallpox.

After the iMpMoh of a considerable number of ronllne matters, including current ac> ;;jiN|nto and various sheep claims, the board appointed a committee compos- of Messrs. Reherd, Minnick, Har-#lion and Dr. Rogers to consider the fratest lodged with the board and in-eriiigate the facts therein involved, by J. Hawse and several other prominent taxpayers of Harrisonburg in regard to the Justice of the amount of the levy now assessed agnnist town property for connty purposes. The protest of Mr. Hawse and others deals witli a question of considerable interest. These gentlonion ro-oite, flist, the wolt-kuowu fact that Mluismncli as the town keeps np Its own streets, roads, bridges and cares for ita own poor, it is exempt by law from sharing any part of the county's burden in keeping up county roads and bridges and in supporting the oonnty's poor. They further reoito that the fund Wlleoted for connty purposes by a levy of !i6 cents on the flOO on out of town property and that raised by a levy of 10 cents on the |I00 in the case of the town property is all mingled in a common fund and alike expended for all county purposes, including the maintenanoo of oonnty roads, bridges and poor. They argue that, that portion of the tax raised on town property and expended in the maintenance of roads, |;bridges and poor is illegally raised land expended. i In addition Jo investigating the iubovo matter and reporting to the ;board, the same committee was authorised to consider and report on the proposition submitted some nonths |igo by the common council of Harri-jonburg in regard to the oonstraotion of a pavement about the courthouse and an equitable division of the costs of same between the town and the ,(sounty.. ________ Melrose.

Bequests are so frequently mndo fur definite information in regard to the fish laws,and particularly those relating to fishing in the Shenandoah river that wo herewith publish the act approved March 9nd, 1804, entitled an act for the protection of fish in the Shenandoah river and its tributaries, as well as a general fish law approved throe days later, March Sth, 1804, entitled an act to amend and ro-unaot section 3108 of the code of Virginia in relation to unlawful fishing, eto. We also publish the amendment approved March 4th, 1808, relating to trout tlshing, and append what is believed to  be an accurate summary of the law as it exists today. Considerable confusion hss grown out of the fact that the two acts approved in March 1804 wore somewhat in coutliGt. It is understood, however, that whore these conflicts occur the latter of the two act effects a repeal of the conflicting portions of the for-mer.and thati the non-conflicting portions of the former remain in force. An act entitled an act for the protection of flsli in the Shenandoah river and its tributaries, approved March 3tid, 1894. 1. Be it enacted by the Qenoral Assembly of Virginia, That it shall be unlawful for any person to cai:ch, destroy or take any flsh of any description, by any method or moans, in or from the Shenandoah river or its tributaries between the first day of April and the fifteenth day of May of each year. 2. It .shall bo nnlawul to use flsh berries, lino, giant powder, dynamite or other explosive substance for the distmotion of flsh, or knowingly or wiUfnlly to cast any noxious substance or matter into the Shenandoah river or any of its tributaries by which fish therein may be destroyed. 8. It shall not be lawful to kill or capture in the Shenandoah river nrJta~irlbat�rJ�s-M,��k., biss by any manner or means, at any time, other than with a hook and line (which shall not be construed to include a trot line), and then subject to the provisions of section one of this act. 4. Dip-nets and stir-nets may be used in taking and catching fish other than bass and mountain trout from the said river and its tributaries, except within the prohibited period of each year. Qigs and spears may be used in killing and taking of flsh other than black bass and mountain tiont from the Shenandoah river and its tributaries from November first to December tenth of each year, but at no other time. 6. Fish-pots may be used for the purpose of catching or taking flsh other than bass in the Shenandoah river and its tribntaries, exoapt within the prohibited period; provided the dam is left open on one side not less than thirty feet from the bank at low water mark, and in case of a dam or other obstruction, vfhen flsh-ladders are required by law, if the party whose duty it is to construct such fish-ladder shall fail to do so, any other person or persons who may be aggrieved thereby may construct the same at the cost of the aforesaid party and recover the same on.motion before a Jnstioe. if less than ene hundred dollars, and on motion in the circuit court if more than one hundred dollars, but this sliall not relieve the party from criminal liability for said failure. 6. Minnow-nets may be used in any of the tributaries of the Shenandoah river for the purpose of taking small fish to be used for bait in angling. 7. Any person violating this act, or any of the provisions thereof, shall be fined not less than five dollars nor more than twenty-flve dollars for each offense. 8. This act shall be in force from its passage. An act to amend and re-enact section 3108 of the code of Virginia, in relation to unlawful fishing, eto. Approved March 6th, lto4. 1. Be it enacted by the Qeoeral Assembly of Virginia. That section two thousand one hundred and eight of the code of Virginia be amended and re-enacted so as to read as follows: Section 3108.
