As Viewed fty  filSSttor Ooanty Stockaui. [From the Frantiln Review.] On a recent visit to the Valley of /Virginia it was my'good fortnne to pay a visit to that prinoe of good farmers and good fellows, John 8. Fank of Singers Olen, Va., and take in, incidentally, his heard of Polled Durham cattle. An inspection of tliorougbbred cattle is a treat to a stookman. When looking at their broad; straight back, flne length, deep bodies, slender necks, and thoroughbred heads with the rich ,joaD and deep red oolom all oharaoteristio of the dnrham blood one is reminded (horns excepted) of the near by bam yard and blue grass pasture of onr friend, MaJ. George Ohrisman, when ihe pride afid beauty of the fall blood , .     . . , Durham can always wmm.-^&mt[*^^'^*^. tmind the fact tiiat the Polled Dnrhams are entirely hornless is a very strong point in their favor and this along 'With the fine milking qualities of this breed shonld bespeak for them a front iplaoe in the esteem of the farmers and stookraicers of onr country. Mr. Funk, owing to the dry season, has iDot been able to give his cattle even average good treatment, but in spite of thirthey have made wonderful increase on weight, calves taking something near 100 pounds per month. I trnst the day may not be far distant when t)ie influence of pqUed dnrhams, polled anguQ and other similar breeds the bloody dehorner may be relegated to, the past. Our friend John S. Funk iu just as thorough bred as his cattle, and any one falling into his hands will get all that fair treatment and honesty can give. A SPLENDID GHAR6E To Orand Jury by Judge Layman 0. Ohalkley.

Lyman O Ohalkley, of Btannton, who presided over Monday's and Tuesday's sessiona of the neoliingham Ck>nnty Oonrt on aeoonnt of the illness of Judge Orat tan, sets forth so entertainingly and with snoh oonspicnons ability the dignity and importanoo of the grand jury, its responsibllites, duties and limitations that the News herewith reproduces it in part. In addressing the grand Jury, Jndge Ohalliley said Gentlemen of the Grand Jnrv: Yon have been called aa one of the regular grand' Juries for this county, of which, as yon already know, there are two each year. The grand Jnry is the most respeo< table, dignified and important .) ^dy that is provided for by oar law. Yonr rosponsibilitiea are very groat, and proper performance of -your dntiea calls for the exercise of great oonrage, intelligence, calm Judgment, pnblio spirit and a profound sense of dnty, and they oan only be performed by men of individual and personal re-aponsibility and of inflneaee in the section of the county in which they live. Their performance reqnirea eonrage, because yon must review, consider and in a proper oaae bring to the bar of Judgment the aote of thoae with whom yon are dally eooiated in boainese and peMonal relatione; beoainae yon moat �npervisei the olBeial oondnct of thoee yoa have he- oanse yon mpst determine what is to the best interest of the community at large and must do that sometimea in the face of a determined and bitter public sentiment. I will remind yon that yonr oaths command that yon shall present no one throngh prejudice or ill will, nor fail to present through fear or favor. Your dnitcs aro twofold. First, those of a board of visitors with power to present for criticism and correction any matter pertaining to the offloial conduct of any person holding public office, or any matter pertaining to the proper administration of pnblio affairs in the county. The second branch of your duties is laid down in the code and is this, "You shall present all felonies, misdemeanors or other violations of the penal laws that have taken place within the Jurisdiction of this court, except that you will present no matter for which the punishment is only a flne and the flne is limited to an amount less than $6." This description of your duties laid down in the Code includes both branches, but I have felt it necessary to divide them in order to impress on yonr minds certain responsibilities, which, by being now seldom or never brought to the attention of grand Juries, have fallen^ almost into complete desuetude. There is a popular impression that the duties of a grand Jury consist only in sitting to hear the evidence of witnesses sent before them by the Oommon'wealth'a attorney and to retnrn indiotmepta drawn by him before the grand Jory meets. But, gentlemen, that is bnt a small part of the dignity and retponai-bility of yonr duties. On the contrary, yon have under yonr cognizance all that relates to the welfare of the comn^onwealth in the county. Every oflice and every officer, the roads, the oonrt hoasa, the Jail, the poor honse, and the whole administration of the affairs of the connty are placed by law nnderyonr care and criticism, and it is upon yon that rests the responsibility forvthe good order and good fame of the oommnnl-ty in which yon live. As yoo acy, so will be the policy of pnblio affaire. As yoa fail to investigate and hold up to public criticism, so will abnae and laxity of administralion con-tinoe if any such exists, The popo* lar impreasioo that, when pnbUo duties have been placed in the hands of officers by an election, thoaii ofBoers ate not responsible to anyone except their constitnente at the nexl election i� false; everyone is refponal- Cqatmnea on feiiirtb pitii�, ofEintsTin.

Sibert'i at AU. An alarm of fire at 6 o'clock last evening, the general demoraliKation which followed among the firemen, and the further fact that although the alarm was bona fide, the firemen have not yet reached the scene of the fire, all serve to emphasize tlie fact that a system of electric fire alarm, frequently petitioned for by. the flre department, is very badly needed in Harrisonburg. Yesterday's alarm waa occasioned by a blaxe in the parlor of J. O. Bibert's residence on'South Main street. In the general mix up whicli followed the blowing of the tannery whistle, the firemen got headed for the residence of Oapt. M. M. Sibert in the extreme northwestern portion qf the town, to find upon their arrival in that section that no one knew anything of a flre. Owing to aome little defect i/ the main flne in Mr. J. O. filberts' residence flre waa communicated to liis parlor and dining room. It was discovered, however, before much damage waa done and was extinguished by Mr. Sibert and his neighbor, Mr. M. Newman. The loss will not amount to more than $30. Special Train.

Washington, Fob. 17th.-Congress aeeUod to realize the past week that the date of adjournment was drawing rapidly apace, and consequently huCklod down to business with the evident determination "to do or die. Routine busineRS was rushed tlirough at a rnoiug rate, while various meas urea of importanoo received some at teniion. The present session will bo notable for tlio many appropriations for improvements at the National Capital. Tlin sundry civil bill, among others along tlie same lino, carries the following appropriations: For tlie erection of an east wing to the Oapi tol building, 93,600,000; for a new bufilding for the Agricultural Department,'11,600,000; for a mammoth offloe building for the use of the Rouse, 93.100,000. In the latter each member of the Houce is to have an offioe, the whole structure to be of the most elaborate and modern style. It ia expected that the site will be secured qnxte near the Oapitol, and work be-gatj witliln six month's, the bnilding to be completed within three years This bill also appropriates |8,000,000 for the relief of the Philippines. The time oi the House will likely be occupied this week with the Fowler onrrenoy bill and the naval appropri atiph bill. The Fowler bill will be given two days, The naval approinri-atjon bill will likely elicit consider able debate over the proposed purchase ofthe Holland submarine boat. "^n the Senate the statehood bil still remains the unfinished business, with Quay as virtually matter of ceremonies. He now has it in such position that if not passed, nothing else of importance can be. One day was secured the past week, however, for consideration of the Panama Oanal treaty, which time was consumed by Mr. Morgan, who talked for five hours, and offered thirty amendments. The temperature around the Senatorial wing is expected to rise some degrees this week as the desperate struggle for the finiHh will bo on in earnest. It is expected that the Indianola postoilloe affair will receive a liearing today, and that Senator Tillman will make it the occasion of a lenRthy discnssion of the general subject of negro office-holding in the South. Among the qaeations being pressed for consideration, some of whicli will likely come up, are the 8hour bill, constituting 8 hoars a days' work on all Government contract work, the immigration, the pure food, and the Philippine currency bills. The House and Senate conferees on the union station bill will meet again today in a final effort to compromise their differences. If they do not succeed at this meeting it is likely the project will fail, as the Pennsylvania is already impatient and will wait but little longer before beginning its permanent improvements on the Mall under existing legislation. Gen. Edna B. Ohaffee and staff arrived here Saturday from an extended tour of military quarters throughout the South. Ho expresses himself as delighted with his reception by the Southern jMoplo, and recommended many improvements for the comfort and convenience of the troops Etatioued in the South. Senator Hanna, in an interview a few days ago, paid Itis compliments to President Baer, loader of the operators in the recent struggle with the coal miners, by saying that he believed the public had suoh utter contempt for Mr. Baer that anything he might say on certain subjects would have no more weight than if he had not ottered it.
