FIRST NATIONAL BANK'S NEW BUILDING  Will Be One of the Most Imposing and Completely Equipped Five-Story Buildings Ever Erected in the Valley of Virginia.  FIRST NATIONAL BANK BUILDING.  The above half-tone cut will convey an excellent idea of tho appearance, when completed, of tho now five-story banking house and ofllco building which the First National Bank will erect during tho coming season. Tho out toaa produced from the photograph of a perspective pen and ink drawing made by Wen. M. Buohor & Son, which drawing was raoently selected by the Bank's directors from their new structure. The only changes worthy of note that will be made from the original plan will ooonr in the style of the windows on the first floor, wliioli will be square head instead of circular, as thoy appear in the above cut. •Thin «iimige ia for the two-fold purpose of affording the banking rooms the best possible light, and making the entrancos more distinctive features.  The new building will bo located on the Bite of the old bank building, and the adjoining one recently "purchased from Hon. George E. Sipe. It will thus oconpy the entire spaco from the Clarendon alley, and will extend as far South as tho J. *P Houok property. *  The first floor will bo constructed of stone, while those above will be  PATRIOTIC CELEBRATION,  D. C. DEVIER, Jeweler,  Timely Suggestions to "Tfiddv" for Working Off tho Fat.  /Mt. Crawford, Feb. 11.—Among tho many school celebrations of Washington's birthday we desire to mention that of the North River School, Miss Katie Wright teacher, which will be held on Friday night. February 20th, in the Junior's Hall nearby. The program will begin at 1:30 p. m., and will consist of recitations, deolamations, patriotic songs, quotations and addresses. A string band will be present to enliven the occasion with patriotic music. A small admission fee of 10 cents will bo oharged, which will be given to tho hall.  The following notico of tho birth of George Washington is said to be from his mother's Bible : "George Washington, son of Augustine and Mary, his wife, was born ye 11th day of February, 1781, about 10 in tho morning, and was baptised the 3rd of April following. Mr. Beverly Whiting and Captain Christopher Brooks, Godfather, and Mrs. Mildred Gregory, Godmother." The new style advances the date eleven days, hence February 22nd is the day observed as the anniversary of _his birth.  Daniel S. Caricofe has moved into his new house recently purchased of Mrs. Ollie Sites Lyon, on the piko south of town, and for which he paid $541.  Jaa. Add Hawkins has moved into the property of Jas. A.

A project of such magnitudo as this insnros an improvomont to our littlo city that will mark an epoch in tho industrial history of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. When erected it will stand as a lasting testimonial to the confidence whioh tho First National entertains in tho future material progress of our community, as well as to tho faith whioh the publio roposes in that bank as a safo ilnanoial institution.  the roligious features of that country by the exhibition of several idols, which wero strange looking gods for anybody to worship.  Several of our young men aro scheduled to leave these diggings for Pennsylvania next Thursday; among whom wo learn, are Homer Roller, John Dean and Todd Sherman.  Tho New York papers report that President Roosevelt weighs 190 pounds and is so worked up over tho possibility that he will pass the 200 pound mark, and thereby be classed among the "fats," that ho is going to take fencing lessons from a professor in Baltimore. Suppose hp does, that would bo only a littlo exercise with a dainty littlo sword and a mask over his face, and probably would not amount to much anyway. But if ho is really in earnest about "fencing " we would suggest that instead of his littlo city fun, ho should come out here to this mountainous district and breathe tho healthful ozone and regall himself with the exhaltations of the highly perfumed flowers (we're going to havo) and take some genuine lessons in "fencing," such as splitting the rails, laying tho worm, driving the stakes, fastening tho rails, etc., while tho saline exhalation issuing from the porous surface and the little streams of moisture trickling from his manly brow will not only accomplish tho object he has in view, but will assist him to stand up before the world and say,"Behold a man."

In the Hen-ate the statehood bill still holds the right of way, and other things can be continued only upon permission from its engineers. Tim recent discussion of this bill lias fortunately revealed somo astonding facts in connection thorowith, suoli as tho ovidonty unintended licoiwo of polygamy which it seems tho original bill permitted simply through omission of any provision regarding it. Tho general opinion is that there will bo a compromise on tho bill, admitting tho threo torritorios as tho two states of Arizona and Oklahoma. It is evident that both sides aro now becoming anxious to finally disposo of tho question, which may hasten suoh compromise.
