TimborviUc, Feb, There is stopping in our town at present a man whoso past life reads like fiction, and who has against % many odds proven liiuiRolf a real horo, that I cannot refrain from mentioning a part of hlH thrilling and nnenviablB career. Ho is Capt, John Clara, aged m ycfirs. He was born on the restless wavos of-the ocean on his father'H boat, the Bl Oapttan, and up to the ago of nine yean was not on shoro Ho was then sont to school in Now Orloaus, whoroiu six week he attained all the ednoaion ho then wanted, after which lie returned to sea. IHa father and mother having died. For Hix yoras ho knocked aliont, kicked and cursed upcm many shipd. At tlio ago of sixteen upon the ship Royal Arcl) be found himself under Capt. .1. D. Hawkins, who was kindly dispoaod and taught him seamanship. When about twonty-Uve years of age iio engnagod in the shiproont of fruit for a Philadelphia Arm, plying between Philadelphia and tlie Wost India Islands, At thirty lie tirnd of coasting and became mate on an ocean- going vessel On tho third trip lie became captain, and eight year later, on January lOtli, 1880, off tho ooast of Newfoundland, a linrrl-cano dismantled his ship, the Hattio Norris, and she went to pieces on the roof .Tannary SOth. Tho twenty-flvo men of the crew laslied themsolves to a part of the deck, where all died bat two. He remembers he was con-scions for seven or eiglit days, during which time he ate the sleo^os of his soalskln coat to tho elbows, and that atfer chewing it ho swallowed it and tho saliva wltli great satisfaction. Tho last tiling lio remembers was the swelling of tiio tongue and his effort to hold his mouth shut with one band beneatli bis chin and one upon bis lioad. For a year i^^^was impossible to get this hand down from the head. It was BO cold that when he spat on the deck thospitom froae and bounded from the deck. When rescued by the ileinuhiip Med^and,' Oipfraiu Grant; twenty-three of the twenty-five were dead. The surivors were Clark and a lad named Lawreqce Miller, aged 16. Miller, who also lost both hands and feet, told Clark that ho retained conoionsneBB longer than any other, and when ho called to Clark and received no reply ho broke down and cried like a baby. They were picked up and taken to Philadelphia, whore, in the Episcopal Hospital, he laid eight months before a sign of natural consoionsnes sappearod. One morning ho heard aclinioh bell ringing he had a resumption of memory and of tho feeling, even tho last wordH lie heard on the wreck, came to liim. For twenty-six day 'i�'j fioatod on tho restless waves, lashod to the deck and beaten by the briny, icy billows. As a result of the freezing of the extremities he lost both tiand and foot. He nor the lad, Lawrence Millor, liad never touched alcoholic drinks- the other twenty-throo wlio froze to death were hard drinkers. From the time lie first loft tlio hospital his life has boon a sorios of hardships, against whicli ho has fought heroically. Ho has undergone over thirty surgical operations and lias taken ether seventeen times. Lately lie lias become BO abhorrent to tito drag tiiat iio lias preferred to endure the pain of several operations whoro a number of strong ossistauts were roquired to liold him. One eye is blinded and througli an artificial pupil in tho otltor, the result of an operation, he sees dimly. To enumerate his many adversities since his being taken to the hospital the first time would fill many pages of the News. His energy, however, and ambition have always kept him from tho mercies of charity and of recent years he has been representing a medical book publishing concern of New York. His orders, accounts, etc., lie keeps in much better order than many traveling laleBmen of much better physical condition He is witliout a known living relative. Sometimes there arises in him an irresistablo longing for tlie sea when lie throws thrift to the dogs and boards the train for Norfolk and for a dur wanders about the docks and ehorerlrUli wb'at tiioughts and feelings who of us ban tell? Viowiug bim as he works bis way on his artificial limbs and a orntoii on either side and a pack of books on liis book he teaches a grand lesson of perseverance, which words can not tell.

Staunton, Feb, 5. - A gipny giving tho nanio of Williatii Mamsey and travelling in a covered wagon with bis wife and four littio obildrou shot his wife tlirough the body with a Winohestor riflo thin aftoniooii near town. After firing tho uliot ho put tho woman in tho wagon and brought hor into town whoro ho roportod tho mat-tor to tho police, aiio is now being oared for at tlio King's Danghtors' Hospital and Id In a very nritiosl condition. Hor recovery Ih congldored very iroprobabin, Tho man made two stntoinontd in regard to tho affair One was to tho effect that ho sliot licr accidontally, and in tho other ho donlcs all Ituow-ledgo of liow she was shot. Tho children are being carod for by tho IKvlice. Legislative Matters. Richmond, Fob. 5.--Tlio Hougo today took up tho gonornl tax bill, hut It will roqnlro moro timii a wook to flniBh it. Tho Cabell child labor bill was defeated in tbe Souato committee. A fuvorablo reiKirt on tho Lylu bill will bo made. This bill proliibits tbe employment of any child under twelve in any factory of tho State and is said not to give tho roliot ttiat is needed. The Honso, nndor tiio loadorahip of W. K. Dako, of CbarlotteNviUo, will likely strike out tho word "corruptly" placed by the committee in tlio Barksdalo Pure Election Bill, and tliis will canso a great fight. Tho Honso flnanoo coniinittoo today heard General Fitz Loo and J. Taylor Ellison on tlio subject of an appropriation for the JanioBtowu colobra-tiou, but no action was taken. Tho bin will bo reported one way or the other in a few days. Death of Q.'a. Michael, Mr. George A.

As yot, however. It has not boon presented to Mr. Switzor, who is promxitly cutting 'phones out when roquostod to do so. Tho 'phono company expresses regret that tho now rate is regarded by any as exorbitant, but it scorns do-torniinod to maintain the advanco. Tho outcome of tho movomont on foot to cut out a largo nninbcr of 'phonos is, perhaps, looked forward to with interest by tho company, as it certainly is by thoio who started ont to make a fight against tho inoroaso. Free Delivery and the Toll Roads.

Tho stockholders of tho Rawley Pike will hold a niootlug soon at wiilob this matter will bo considered. Tho department has roceutly declared against tho policy of paying toll in order that it moy render public service to persons living along toll roads. What action tiio stock-holdoni in tho piko will take ia is of course unknown.
