Ktub IncowF�Aieae� Over th� Diir contianaBca of the SariT C. W. Train. Btid�ewat�r, Feb. 14-The oitiaena of this place were greatly shocked this morning when the announcement of the sudden death of Mr. C. J. Manning was sent out. In the afternoon of last Monday he waa taken suddenly ill at his store on Main street, and for a short time it waa thought that the attack would prove fatal, but after being taken to bis residence on High Btreet,he rallied to such an extent aa to enoonrage hit many friends iu the belief that he wonid soon be oat and among them agatn. He did. indeed, seem to be on the road to regaining his former health up to the time of retiring on Friday night, during which he slept until about 4 o'clC�k this morning, when he bc-oame restless, and at a few minutes after 6 became nnoonsoions, and continued in that condition to the time of his death, which ooonrred at 7 30. Mr. Manning ^aa bom in Charles Town, W. Va., sixty-six years ago last Juno. He waa a soldier in the Southern army and his remtniscenoet of those stirring times were very interesting. He waa a man of fine intellect, and a good conversationalist, and by these endowments and the uniform kindness of his disposition be gathered many true friends around himj who were deaply grieved when they heard of his death. He was � zealous and valued member of the Methodist Church, and also a member of the Maaonio fraternity and in both organiaatlona will be keenly missed. Mr. Manning waa married twice, his first wife was a Miss Minnie Cowan and a sister of Mrs. Robert Eastham, of near Keealetown, and Mrs. Eugene West, of Harrisonburg. Bis second wife was MisB Minnie Williams, of this plaoe, to whom he was married about twelve years ago and who snr-vives him. He also, leavee two sons, Charles O., and O. Upshire Manning, of Fort Defiance, Arizona, both children by the first marriage; and one brother, J. Frank Manning, who lives on the old home place at Charles Town. His remains will be taken to his native town for burial on Tuesday next. The body will be shipped on the day before over the Chesapeake Western Railroad via of Elkton, and will leave here on the 4 p. m. train. All the people of this vicinity sincerely mourn with those who weep and will long remember Mr; Manning for his noble traits of character and his charitable consideration of hia neighbor and friend. A delegation of his brother Masons will accompany the remains to Charles Town and perform the bnrial rites of that order. His pastor, Rev. J. O. Hawks, will oondnot the fnneril services at the residence at a :80 on Monday afternoon. Mr. Stuart F. Lindsay, who has been a guest of his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. J. H.

David Bnsh, of Staunton, oondnoted the quarterly meeting here today and will preach tomorrow at 11 a. m., after which the sacrament will be served. The bnsinese part of the meeting was very satisfaetory. But few accessions have been made to the ohuroh in this plaoe thus far during the conference year. Prof. Q. B. Holsinger, who has been teaching m'nsio in ihe far west for several SBonths, arrlTed at his home in this plaoe this morning. His sojourn in that part of the oouatry waa both a social and flnan-ofa) saooess.

The fan began early and lasted tlironghont the day, although the police, with their aoonstomed charity, tried to avoid making arrests wherever it was possible. Yesterday was policeman Crider's first court day on duty. Like his brother officer, Citief Aruientrout, he proved most eflVoienl la quieting tlireatened disorders and preserving tho peace. However, when boister-ouB characters persisted in disorder he proved himself quite capable of locking them up. Among those who will have to acconot in Police Court this morning for their misbehavior are several old offenders, some from the country and some from the towu, wlio iiavo been tiiore many a time before.

I'rank Adams was, of course, a large part of the performance, but there were "others," who made good music, did good dancing and lined ont hits whenever they had a olianoe at the bat. Tlie evening with ' 'Uucle Hez,'' taken all together wo* a very pleasant, one. .--- Beaaon for Bprayiog.

Highland had a representative in the Constitutional Convention,- and Highland had representatives in tlie Legislature, but Highland has failed to be represeutod in either. As a result we are placed in a delegate district with Augusta, wo are in a senatorial district with Bock-bridge and we are in a Judiciary district with Bototont. And now to complete the statement, it only remains for us to be placed iu a congressional district with Rockingham. Then perchance, a friendly arm of the Alleghany may encircle us and remove ns from our various and snddry places in tho "Dear Old Oom-mouwealth," and transplant us in ttte happy, go-easy, hills of West Virginia, wliere it may be we will be permitted to affiliate with our nearest neighbors.-HigiiVand Recorder, How is This?

Tho men's meeting was well attended, aud Mr. Elsom spoke with power. One man surrendered to Christ, and anotlier seemed very eam-est for his soul's salvation.
