It is tho common practice in this State for those who become financially involved to voluntarily transfer their proporty to a trnsteo, for tho "benelit of creditors," or "make an assignment, 1 ' as the expression goes, whereby they frequently mako preferred creditors of members of the family or others who, by sorhe turn or other, often ' 'get in on the ground floor.'' An amendment to the bankrupt law has recently been concurred in by the Sonate and House and will likely become a law, whioh provides that euch an assignment will be taken as an act of bankruptcy and the debtor may bo thrown into the bankruptcy court. When adjudged a bankrupt he cannot prefer one creditor over another, all being on an equal footing so far as he is concerned. _ _ Rev. S. A. Hitnor Fined $10- Rev. S. A.

DEVIER, Jeweler, h. n. MEETING. Assembled at the Public School Building Saturday. THE EDUCATIONAL SITUATION. Prof. Stone, of the University of Virginia, and Supt. Stearnes Deliver Addresses. The Rockingham Teaohers' Association met Saturday, February Ttli, in tho public school building in Har-rionburg. Supt. R. C. Stearnes, of Roanoko County, president of the State Teachors' Association, and Prof. Ormond Stone, of tho University of Virginia, wore present and the forenoon session was taken up by speeches from these two gentlemen, who discussed the educational situation in Virginia from the standpoint of tho association as an organization to promote the progress of our school interests. Pres. Stearnes showed how a vigorous local teachers' association adds lifo and interest to the State association, which should bo a dovol-opment of tho local organization; that tho local teachers' association should exist to help tho people, and that in so doing the toachers will accomplish self development. Tho teachers should organize also for tho sake of the children and for tho sake of the State. The local association should adopt a definito line of work. While Superintendent Stearnes is him self a lawyer, yet ho hoped the time would como when tho office of county superintendent would not bo filled by mon of other professions, because this officer should devote all his time to his sohool work. You can't serve two masters. He spoke of tho need of proper teachers and said that the good superintendents could weed out tho poor teachers. Prof. Stone said in his talk that teaohers must be missionaries—must combine to accomplish needed reforms. There are problems for the teaohers of the State to solve—one of whioh is longer terms, and he recommended that the asooiation secure the cooperation of tho press by having the local newspapers set apart a column for the discussion of educational mat-tors. J. Luther Kibler offered resolutions favoring Superintendent Hulvey for a position on the State Board of Education and their adoption was-moved by Prof. Keister, They were unanimously adopted. At the afternoon session Prof. W. L. Korr discused "Diacritical Marks" from the blackboard and showed that tho teaching of these "symbols" is an essential feature of praotical methods of teaching spelling. Prof. L. R. Dingus read an able paper on Manual Training, which he was asked to furnish for publication. On motion of Superintendent Hulvey, a committee was appointed to nominate district vice-presidents of the R. T. A., viz: Supt. Hulvey, Profs. Hooke, Dinguss, Keister and Suter. A Lnray Gas Explosion. A colored coachman in tho employ of Dr. T. B. Amiss, of Luray, was turning a corner with tho Doctor's team Wednesday morning when ho collided with a lamp post and broke tho gas pipe. A by-stander remarked, "Gee, listen at that gas," and then, yeilding to the temptation, struck a match to it. Instantly there was a fizz, an explosion, a rush of flame and the by-stander was leaning for support against a wall ten feet away, suffering from shock and surprise. Finally some one camo up, soused a towel full of mud on the pipe, stopped up the leak and extinguished the flame. Poor Fage Potatoes. Some of the Page County farmers who have been holding back their potatoes for 75 cents a bushol were surprised the other day when a representative of the Armour Packing Company landed in Luray and offered to deliver potatoes, transportation paid, to merchants of that placo at Co cents a bushel. According to Armour's agent they had bought a crop in the Northwest at rock bottom figures and had potatoes to burn. THE ALBEMARLE BAR WANTED.—A reliable colored house girl. Address ' 'X,'' Evening News. Passes Resolutions Recommending Four Terms of tho Circuit Court. At a mooting of tho ban of Albo-marlo Cnunty and tho city of Ohar-lotteavillo hold Friday morning, a resolution was adopted by a unanimous voto favoring a genoral law for tho whole Stato providing that in each county of tho Stato thero shall bo hold at least four terms of tho Circuit Court, tho dates of said torms in each county to bo fixed by law; and that thoro should bo a furthor provision that, if in tho opinion of tho judgo of any Circuit more than four terms aro necessary and expedient for tho publlio interest, tho said judgo shall bo authorized to hold tho sanio at such timo as ho may determine, tho notice of such additional term to bo providod for by the genoral law, and all business to bo dono at such additional torms as may bo specified by tho goneral law. Tho bar of Albemarlo recommended tho following dates for tho four regular terms in Albomarlo; to-wit: 1st Monday in March, 1st Monday in Juno, 1st Monday in October and 1st Monday in Decombor. In tho opinion of tho Albomarlo bar, as expressed by resolution, tho jurisdiction in tho matter of tho admission of wills to p.-obato, and of tho appointmont and qualification of guardians, personal representatives, curators, appraisers, and tho committee of tho estates of personp who have boon adjudgod insane or convicted of felony, and in tho matter of tho substitution of trustees, should bo conferrod upon tho clorks of tho several Oirouit Courts, with tho right of appeal to said Oirouit Court. Arm Injured While at Play. Robert Loe BaEsford, tho eight-year-old son of Mr. Qeorgo W. Bass-ford, of this place, foil wliilo playing prisoners' base on Gorman street Saturday afternoon and painfully injured hiB right arm just above tho olbow. Having been subjected to tfio hand of a surgeon some month before, when suffering from a broken collar bono, tho littlo follow concluded to postpono as long as possible what ho feared might bo a disagreo-ablo ordeal, arid ho thoreforo remained away from home a couplo hours before reporting tho accident. When, at last, ho mado his appoarance at homo the arm was painfully swollon and as yot it is somewhat difficult to ascertain tho extent of tho injury. Whon Robert was asked' why ho failed to report promptly £0 sovoro an accident ho replied, boy like, "because I was afraid you would sond for a doctor.'' Mrs. Begoon Improving. Tho condition of Mrs. Begoon, who was prostrated from fright a fow days ago at her homo in East Rockingham and thoroby rendered unconsoious for several hours, is reported to have improved very considerably within the past 48 hours. It will bo recalled that Mrs. Begoon, who is a widow, lives alone and was terrified Wednesday morning last by tho beliof that some one had gained an entrance to her house and was secreted within. The News was in error Saturday in stating it was Mrs. John Begoon, of near Goods Mill, who was frightened. It should have said Mrs. James Begoon. The two ladies aro sissters-in-law, both widowed, and live but a few miles apart, henco tho error. Burglars in Culpeper. Culpeper, Va., Fob. 7.—Burglars broke into tho dwolling of Congressman Jno. F. Rixoy, at Brandy Station, this county, at an early hour this morning. The thieves affected an entrance by breaking through the front door, no one being in the house at the time. When a family living in an outhouso heard the noise and went into the main building they found everything in an upturned stato, bureau drawors rifled and valuables gone. But, as they were not familiar with tho contents of the house, they could not give an accurate account of what was taken by tho thieves. Tho officers are today looking out for the burglars. Revival at the Baptist Church. At 7:20 tonight a series of meetings will begin at tho Baptist Church. The Rev. Percy G. Elsone, a well known evangelist is to assist tho pastor, Rev. Oscar E. Sams. Mr. Elsono has no clap-trap or slight of hand methods in his revival services. He preaches tho unvarnished truth, fearlessly, but faithfully. These services are to continue two weeks. The public has a cordial invitation to attend all meetings. SUPT. HULVEY ENDORSED For Position on tho Stato Board of Education. Tho teachers of tho comity who did not attend the K. T. A. mooting Saturday missed a good meeting and a rare opportunity to hear tho president of tlio Stato Teaohers' Association, R. O. Stearnes, of Saloin, who is also a lawyer of note. Notwithstanding his being a lawyer, Mr. StearnoH recommends that superintendents give their whole timo to tliior work. Ho said lawyers should not bo superintendents. Mr. Stearnes either contemplates giving up his law practice or tlio snperintondonoy of Roanoko County. Which ? Wo shall seo. Ho is a good superintendent, however. Superintendent Hulvey was endorsed by tho body, Mr. ICiblor offering tlio resolution and Mr. Keister moving its adoption, for a place on tho new Stato board. Superintendent. Iful-voy's ohances aro Al. Geographically, Rockingham is the keystone of the Valloy, and as was demonstrated at tho Richmond Conference of Superintendents, tho schoos of tho county as a whole stand in tho forefront. Tho Valley is entitled to representation on tlio Stato board because of tho largo proportion of school tax she pays. Rockingham is deserving of tho honor because of the high grade of efficiency ot her schools. Prof. Hulvey is worthy beoanso of hiH devotion to tho canso of public education. He is fully committed to the policy of consolidation of schools, honco wo neod him on the board. Nono hotter co'uld be found tho Stato ovor. His ripo oxporieneo in tho sohool room makes him all tho more valuable as a possible mombor. Howovov, it will not bo a walk-over, as thoro aro already some half dozen candidates; notably, Supt. G. G. Joynes, of Accoinac. Death of Miss Sarah Yealcel. ' Miss Sarah Iilizaboth Yeakel died at 4 o'clock Saturday morning on North Main stroot, aftor a protracted illness from consumption.

An election of otlicers and directors resulted in tho re election of all tho old officers for tin-coming year, an well as the re election of the entire hoard of director; with tho exception of Mr David A floatwole, who tendered his resignation some time since. Tho officers for the coming \ear are, therefore, I). H. Showiiltcr, president; and J. V>' Minnie!;, score, tary and treasurer. Tim hoard of directors is composed of I). I! Show-alter, .T. W Miuniok, C. If. linn,I;, Charles K. Ifarnian, Samuel Show alter, John A. Wonger, Ah ram Andes, Jacob Funklmusor and Aldine Heat-wole. Mr. John Mason, who resides near Mt. Iloreli Church, was chosen by tho now hoard as toll gate keeper for gate No. I, just west of town, in placo of Daniel J. Myers whoso year soon expires. Mr. Myers expects to move west in a short time. Franklin Notos. Franklin, W. Va., is enjoying an era of unparalleled prosperity. In the past few years several splendid structures have been erected in tin 1 town. Among thorn were tlio Florentine Hotel, Bowman iV MeOluro's Store, M. K. Bryon Hoggs' store, The Farmers Bank of Pendleton, Dr. Moomau's fine residence, W. 1!. Anderson's "Hillhurst," Ernest Mow-man's now homo and tho new residence of T. J. l'owman. Tho coming year, however, promises to eclipse any yet in the way of improvements. A new hotel will lie erected at a cost of ^10,00«. M. K. Boggs & Co. will build an addition to their alroady largo structure. Dr. Preston Boggs has alroady started on a lino homo, and Mrs. Cunningham expects to build a .-¿¡,'¡.000 houso. John Shaw contemplates a fine residence, Mason Boggs will build in tho early summer and thero is a probability that Bol'on Hodriclc & Co. will erect, a large now store building. Besides all these improvements the main street will soon ho macadamized. The War on Tuhorculoses. That is a magnificent sum which Mr. Rockefeller has promised lo placo ut tho disposal of the University of Chicago for tho study of contagious diseases, especially tuberculosis. It iH nearly six times as largo as Mr. Phipps' recent gift to Philadelphia, and exactly seven times as groat as the amount dedicated by Sir Earnest Cassel to a similar kind of research in England over a year ago. The scope of tlio work to bo undertaken in Chicago is broad enough to embrace cancer, smallpox and a lot of other disorders, but, in view of the fact that tuberculosis finds the most, victims today it is probable that it will receive tho largest degree of attenion in tho immediate future. New York Tribune. The New Postage Stamp. Tho distribution of tho new one cent postage stamp is now going on. Hereafter this issue only will be furnished to postoflioes making requests for ono cent stamps. Thoro aro practically nono of tho old issue on hand at tho Post Oflleo Department, although thero aro largo quantities held as reserve stock in tho different oflices throughout tho country.

Kubino replied volubly to all interrogations, and whenever lie uttered the word ''anarchy'' ho raised his voice as though exulting in his connection therewith. The prisoner bitterly assailed modern sooii ty as tho cause of all evil, declaring hi' only attempted to take the lifo of the king because the latter was tho highest representative of society. Kubino added that ho had intended going to Italy for tlio purpose of making an atompt, on the life of the Italian monarch, but, ho did not, have sutli-eienf funds. During tho prisoners' examination it developed that ho left tho Italian army because his officers persecuted him. Tho prosecution included in tho indictment a letter from Kubino to a socialist newspaper puhi ished in London, just i fyi/ig t/io murder of Souor ('anovas del Castillo, tho Spanish premier, and stating that lie, Kubino, had contemplated killing King Edward November 2S, Prospects for Nelson. "Tho Big Survey," containing several thousand acres of land in upper Kookflsh Valley and along tho eastern base of tho Blue Ridge, which some timo ago was purchased by Northern capitalists, will likely prove a big thing for Nelson. Plans are being made to build a railroad from Afton, up the Koeklish and connecting with the Southern somewhere near Lovi ngston. This would open up a section rich in minerals, timber, fruit and agricultural products. -Waynesboro Valley Virginian.
