Wearing a sickly grin anil haiiri-cuffed to Mollio Martin, a woman o! notoriously bad repute, for whom ho had abandonod his wife and fourlittlo children, tho youngest of whom is a babo but four days old, Walter Criglor, of this place, arrived horo last night on tho local B. & O. train in tho custody of Chief of Police J. L. Armentrout, tho couple having been arrest,ed at 2 o'clock yesterday morning in Staunton, to which city they had skipped from horo the cvon-ing boforo for tho purpose, presumably, of catching an eastbound Chesapeake and Ohio train. They woro urrestod by the Staunton authorities at tho request of Chief Armentrout, that officer having sworn out a warrant for thoir arrest shortly after they left liore Thursday ovoning. Tho fact leaked out during tho day that tho Chief had gouo to Staunton and was apt to return with them on the ovoning freight. As a resnlt Criglor and tho woman woro greoted upon their arrival by a crowd of fully ono hundred and fifty men and boys, who Congregated at tho depot aud followed thorn with jeors all tho way to tho jail, in spite of the protest of tho polico. On thoir way from tho train to thoir cells Criglor tried hard to sham indiiforenco to the roproachos which were hurled at him by tho crowd and waived his hat defiantly over his head in reFponso to tho demonstrations of tho assoniblage. Tho woman looked frightened and clutched tightly to hor little five-year-old son, whom she lod by tho hand. For somo timo pa9t Criglor has boon infatuated with tho Martin woman, and neglected his own family shamefully on hor account. Ro-cently ho quit tho employ of Thomas & Co., and made tho statement to several parties that liepurposed going to Newport News. It was only after he loft hero, howovor, that his object for leaving was fully divulged. Criglor boarded tho train hero Thursday afternoon, sneaking on to it at a point somo distance south of tho do-pot. Ho was joined lator by tho woman when tho train roached tho Chesapeake & Western Junction. Ho was without money and she paid tho fares. • They woro accompanied by hor fivo-year-old son. Tho authorities here woro on the alort, having had their suspicions aroused as to tho motives of tho couple, and were thoroughly advised as to thoir movements tho moment tlioy loft town. The Staunton polico arrested tho pair in that city at a houso to which they had gone for tho night. Crigler camo hero somo years ago from West Virginia. Ho has always been industrious and 'horo a good reputation until recently. Of late, however, ho has treated his family with the greatest indiiforenco. His wife is almost frantic ovor his conduct. She and her four littlo children are being looked after by tho polico and tho people of hor neighborhood.An Unusual Affair. The sudden abandonment of tho Young trial and sentonco of tho prisoner to life imprisonment on a plea of murder in tho second degree, advised and accepted by tho court, aro well calcualted to cause surprise and criticism. This was done on the finding of the prosecution's export oxam-iners, who reported that the man is 'medically," but not "legally" insane. That is to say, ho is mentally unbalanced, but is able to distinguish between right and wrong. Ho is, therefore, morally responsible and legally liable for his crime. This rule waa applied in tho Guiteau trial and is generally recognized in tho courts. In such case tho law is plain that tho murderer must pay tho penalty of his crime if found guilty and responsible, and it is for tho jury to eay whether be is guilty and responsible. In this instance the jury is waved aside, the prisoner escapes with imprisonment, probably commitment to an asylum later on wth tho chance of an ultimate pardon. As his criminal responsibility is affirmed by the medical examiners on whofio report tho action is taken, it is a precedent that can hardly bo commended in the interest of justice or tho welfare of society—New York Herald.

During a roccnt (lobato in tho United Stntes Senate, Senator Morgan, of Alabama, tracod tho national characteristics and gifts of tho North Ainorican Indians, and, in so doing, gave tho following authentic historical sketch of tho Indian for whom tho majestic mountain and beautiful river of tho Valloy of Virginia woro named—old Sonandoah : This colobrated chief, whoso lifo moasured a century, died in 181(1 Ho was well known in the wars which occurred whilo tho United States woro British colonics, aud also in tho war of tho Revolution, as tho undo-viating friend of tho Amoricans. In his youth ho was very savago aud addictod to drunkenness, but by tho forco of reflection and tho bonovo-lont oxhortations of a missionary to tho tribe ho lived a reformed man for more than sixty years and died in Christian hopo. In 1775 Shenandoah was proRent at a treaty mado in Albany. That treaty was mado by Brandt. At night ho was exceedingly drunk, aud in tho morning found himsolf in tho streot, stripped of all hiB ornaments and ovory articlo of clothing. His pride revolted at his solf-degradation, and ho resolved novor moro to dolivor himsolf over to tho power of ' 'strong wator.'' But Sheanandoali remombored as ovory othor Indian has remembered, througbt his whole lifo that it was tho white man who mado tho whiskoy. Tho Indian did not know how to mako it. Ho could only dio at tho hands of tho white man through that serpentine and insidious agent. That is tho worst shamo wo have ovor inflictod upon oursolves as well as upon the Indians. Shonandoah's person wa^ tall nud muscular, but woll mado. His countonanco was intelligent and beamed with all tho ingonious dignity of an Indian chief. In youtl). ho was bravo and intrepid; in his riper years, ono of tho ablest counselors among tho North American tribes. Flo possessed a strong and vigorous mind, and though torriblo as tho tornado in war, ho was bland and mild as tho zephyr in peace. With tho cunning of tho fox, tho hungry perseverance of tho wolf, tho ability of tho mountain cat, ho watched and ropolled— What? Canadian invasion. His vigilance onco preserved from massaoro tho inhabitants of tho then infant settlement of tho German fiats. His influence brought his tribo to assist tho Amoricans in thoir war of tho Revolution. His many friondly actions on thoir behalf gained for him among tho Indian tribes tho appellation of tho ' 'white man's friend." To a friend who called to seo him in hiB wane—he was then blind—ho thus expressed himsolf: ''I am an aged hemlock—tho winds of a hundred wintors have whistled through my branches—I am dead at tho top. Tho genoration to which I bolong have run away and left mo. Why I live tho Great Spirit alone knows. Pray to my Jesus that I~may have patience to wait for my appointed time to dio. As ho concluded tho Blcotch Senator Morgan added: "There is not a man, perhaps, in this Senate who could speak a prayer moro intelligently or moro touchingly than grand old Shenandoah spoko that prayer. Ho had been tho friend of the white man, because ho saw that tho whito man's road led to prosperity.''At the Opera House. In securing Frank Adams in Uncle Hez, with his superb band and orchestra for Monday nigiit, February 16th, Braithwaito & Co. are to bo congratulated. Tho following clipping from Manso-fiold (Ohio) News will be of interest to theatre goers: Frank Adams and his company in "Undo Hez," a farco comedy, appeared at the Memorial Opera House last evening before a packed houso. Mr. Adams played tho part of an old country man very creditably, provoking much laughter. In acts 1 and 2 tho play reminded one of Hanlon's Fan asma aud Suporba. There were many now hits in tho show and tho audience seemed well pleased with tho performance. A return date is talked of by tho local management.

Even amid tho January snow in certain warm swamps, in tho beds of shallow running brooks and around springs which do not freezo, tho sturdy skunk-cabbage is stoutly pushing its hardy sheaths up into tho world of frost. You who in tho sprintr pass with disdain this homely habitant of tho swamp because of its fetid breath, wait until tramping through tho snow of a winter landscape, you como suddenly upon the brownish green spearheads of this dauntless forerunner of tho spring bravely thrust above tho protecting earth. You never will forget it. It seems as if in tho instant of that first glimpse tho winter had been dealt its deathblow. There ia proof that already aro tho forces of tho spring at work. You* will linger loi:g, and thereafter will admiration mature into something akin to affection for this ill-smelling denizen of tho swamp.—Country Lifo in America.

Ho tliit com mittoth sin is of tho devil." In the first part of tho discourse tho speaker established with great earnestness the fact of man's deception. He then argued God's truth, "Ho that committeth sin is of the devil." Tho Mormon whs characterized by groat earnest newt and fervor of spirit. One person professed faith in Christ. Perhaps tho most pleasant services of tho series aro tho o'clock prayer meetings, wlion members of tho congregation make known tho objects of their prayer« and pray with each other. Thoro will bo threo services tomorrow; ono at 11 o'clock; another at ¡1 o'clock, for nion only, at which tho young men of tho town nro urged to bo present and for which tho Y. M. C.

Sorvico today at I! p. m. and 7'.:!() p. m. ♦ • •Roloased on Habeas Corpus- Jacob Fahoknor, colored, who was arrested somo months ago, charged with stealing a pockotbook from Mr. E. B. Crawford at tho Warren House, and has sinco been confined in tho county jail waa rolouaod from custody yestorday morning on a writ of habeas corpus awarded by Judge S. II. Lotohor, of tho Circuit Court Faueknor waa immediately ro-ar-restod on a now warrant sworn out by Mr. Crawford boforo Justice P. Bryan, but later in tho day ho was brought boforo tho Justice, and, on motion of liis attornoys, Messrs. O. A. Hammer and Jas. B. Stephenson, roloased for irregularities in the warrant. Witnesses against Faueknor woro Hont boforo tho Hpecial grand jury at tho January term of County Court, but tho indictment which was drawn to bo found against him was returned by tho grand jury "not a trno bill." When tho grand jury thus failed to indiot, tho prisoner was, in spito of tiio protests of his counsol, romanded to jail, at tho request of Commonwealth's Attorney Conrad, to await tho action of another grand jury. His counsol insisted that bo had a right to his freedom, applied for writ of habeas corpus, and won. Tho warrant upon which Faueknor was ro-arreated yestorday waa dismissed on tho ground that justice Bryan was not tho proper officer to issue it, but that it should havo boon issued by Mayor Roller, or in tho absence of tho latter, by anothor officer of thn town as provided by law, tho alleged offense having boon committed within tho corporation. Whilo tho matter of dissmisal was being argued another warrant was procurred from Recorder Bradley, Mayor Roller boing out of town, and placed in tho hand of an officer in order that Faueknor might again bo re-arrested, if released by Justice Bryan. Tho third warrant, howovor, was not executed. Discussion grow rather warm whilo argument wero being mado yossterday for dismissal. Defendant's counsel intimated that speeches wore protracted whilo additional warrants wero being procured, and they suggested that any further arrests would bo regarded by tho accused as a malicious prosecution. It is regarded as probable that a further effort will bo mado to procure an indictment at tfio hands of tho regular grand jury which meets next week.Revere House is Leased. Charles F.

Editor News As \sv have oft repeated, our schools us a whole ar.- progressive!. ()f course, coniK of the isolated schools in which tho teacher in charge holds only a third grade certificate, are not what they should bo, but even these are as good in old Rockingham aa such a class of reach-era may lie anywhere. Third grade teachers are dear at any price, i. o., too much money is spent throughout, tin- State for Mich low grade tuition. We are ¡(lad to know that tho proposed consolidation of schools will remedy this far reaching evil. A good graded school five miles away is far better than a dozen inferior ones within sight -such as are usually taught by low grade teachers. Conditions arc changing. All hail tho change! Why are tho heat teachers of tho nearby countics coming into Rockingham V Becaupo thin county offers them better schools than r.hny can find in thoir conservative countioa. There aro several of tho loading teachers in Rockingham who havo como in this year from other countioa in tho Valley, north and south; notably from Augusta and Shenandoah. Last Saturday, teachers' mooting» woro hold both in Rockingham aud Augusta, and, to show that tho methods in this coiinry of holding institutes aro desired in at least one othor county, wo quote from Staunton Nowh tho following from tho report of lata Saturday'« teachers' mooting in Augusta: "After some discussion as to tho desirability of a County Teachers' lutitute, a motion was made that tho president appoint a committee to confer with tho superintedent and district board, then to formulate a resolution and petition from tho teacher« to tho comity board, asking that ono day bo given in each session on which (with ono day which tho teachers would give), tho institute could ho held successfully. It is tho dc-iiiro of the teachers in this county to havo a Vouchers' Institute like that held for tho R<y-kiiigham teachers. '' This ia tho rrqueat from tho teachers, of tho teachers and by tho teachers of a sister county to imitate Rockingham's example. In Auguato thoro has been but one institute in fifteen years. Teachers push up your slow leaders. PROGRESS. ♦ • ♦Syrian Granted a Writ of Error. In tho matter of tho Commonwealth vs. Charles Joseph, alias Cussim bsod, the Syrian poddlar found guilty some months ago in the County Court of an attempted assault on a littlo girl at Kheiidun, Judge S. II. Letcher, of the Circuit Court, has awarded a writ of error and supersedeas. This does not necessarily mean that tho man will he granted a new trial, but it does mean that at tho April term of the Circuit Court, if not before that time by agreement, prisoner's counsel will have tho opportunity to urguo before the Circuit Court tho propriety of that court granting tho Syrian a new trial.
