  H H Robinson, editor and proprietor of the Review at Lonaconing Md, died of typhoid fever, Sun night last. Deceased was a young man,and leaves a widow and one child, the most deeply concerned among the bereft. He had many friends, and his paper widely circulated in George's Creek region. The funeral was one of the largest ever attended in that section, and the best testified the esteem in which young Robinson was held in the community where he has resided.


LOCAL NEWS

  Rev Wm Stoudenmire, Pastor of the Lutheran Church at this place, will shortly make a visit to Baltimore, Washington, and other points east, with a view of inaugurating steps looking to the building of a Church at Keyser. -Oakland Democrat.

  Cut His Throat with a Razor - A dispatch to the Balto. Sun says: On Mon Deg*an Wills, a farmer living by North River, Hampshire County West Va, cut his throat with a razor. The injuries will probably prove fatal. He was seventy years old. Aberration of mind caused by bad health is supposed to have led to the act.

  High Waters delayed the overland until Mon, and no stage arrived from Moorefield that evening. Consequently on Tues the broad-gauge delayed train came in with four horses the freight annex and section No 2 all loaded to the bows. Commodore Bright took personal control of the second section and went out to meet the overloaded coach of Capt Condin. Four horses were also used on Wed, owing to the terribly bad condition of the road.

  Hon H S Davis and wife who went on a brief visit to Florida, returned via Louisville, Cincinnati, and Parkersburg, reaching this place Mon. They were detained nearly a week by the floods in the Ohio, and sometimes hardly know whether traveling by navigation or rail. Being surrounded by water while in the cars at some points, and transferred from cars to boats at others. Mrs Davis describes the sights as awfully grand, and says she had grave apprehensions for their personal safety at times. Telegraphic communication was cut off and she could not hear from home, which aggravated her anxiety.

  Aid For the Sufferers - The appeals for aid to the sufferers from the late disastrous freshets along the Ohio and other Western streams, has found a response in many benevolent hearts. We notice contributions of food, clothing, bedding, money, etc, from cities, towns, and individuals, and still there is much privation and suffering. Mrs Head and Mrs J H Johnson made a canvass of our town Wed and the result -collecting together of two stout boxes of clothing and bedding and $27 in cash, that was sent to the Mayor of Wheeling, for the needy on Thurs. Other contributions are coming and will be forwarded. May we not depend on the interior towns and country farmers to add something in the way of provision? All supplies are forwarded free by the B&O, and anything sent to the Tribune office will be promptly shipped.

  Mangled On the Railroad - A body was discovered one morning last week this side of Bull-neck on the B&O Railroad, lacerated and disfigured almost beyond identification. the head being on one side and the trunk of the other, blood bespattered the tier, and fragments of flesh lay scattered around. The boys who first discovered the corpse, did not then recognize the body, but an informal inquest settled beyond doubt it was a muskrat. No blame is attached to the company or employees.

  Personal. - Dick Alexander, son of late Samuel Alexander, of Moorefield, returned from Birmingham, Alabama, a few days since, where he has been with a corps of (?fighters).

  Rob't Sherrard? of Illinois, who came in with his fathers remains about the first of the month, returned home on Wed morning.

  Mayor Miller returned home from Wheeling on Thurs night, whither he had gone to look after friends who were supposed to have suffered by the flood.

  We had a pleasant call from George W Leatherman, of Cansan?, on Wed. He informs us the snow has disappeared and winter broken in that as yet unsettled region. Cansan will yet be a great business center as its sources of mineral, timber, and grazing are developed.

Will Johnson, of Grant County, has gone to Chicago for stock cattle.

  Dr Allen Gittings, assistant superintendent of the lunatic asylum at Weston W Va, was found dead in his bed Mon morning. He is supposed to have died from heart disease.

  Ed Davis, of Keyser, who had a cow killed some time since, while insured, in Emmitsberg, Md,lives ? since company, received his insurance money this week.

  Wm Kimes says the report that he said the Potomac was 25 feet above high water mark was false, and we have no doubt he is correct. the rumor was started s a joke, we understand.

  Debating Society - An Antioch correspondent furnished us with ? of a debating society ? Mike's Run school-house on the 16th and 26th of Jan'y and Feb'y 2d and 9th. It is too lengthy for publication and we will give a mere summary: C Geaster was chosen President and C W Canan, Sec'y. First Question, "Resolved that compulsory education should be adopted in West Va" was ably discussed by James Foley in the affirmative and Dan'l Gardner negative. Decision in favor of negative.
  John O Dye was chosen Secretary of second meeting and the question, "Which is the greater evil, War or Intemperance?" was discussed by Dan'l Gardner and C W Canan and James Foley and R Dye. The discussion was animated, and many interesting points adduced, but the two latter won the victory in favor or intolerance.

  Stock Notes - Chambers & Vanmeter shipped 105 head of fine cattle Thurs last, grazed and fed by Lew Wilson, of hardy. They averaged about 1500 lbs, gross and were resold to Griffith & son of Baltimore, for exportation, and will be devoured by Queen Victoria's subjects.
  John S Arnold, of Knobley, received a car load of Chicago stock cattle on Tues morning. They were a neat lot of two year olds, the coming spring, weight 700 in Chicago and cost $4.25,making them cost in round figures, at home, about $33 per head.
  Hon Jos Vanmeter, of Hardy, has sold to Mr - Campbell, of Berkeley county a fine thoroughbred duham? bull calf. The animal, one year at Feb'y 1st, weight one thousand lbs, and was shipped to the purchaser on Thurs by harry Vanmeter. He is a splendid specimen of his kind and Mr Campbell may congratulate himself on securing such a valuable acquisition to his herd. The price paid, we understand, was $150. Mr Vanmeter has a fine bred and perfect animals of this staple breed as can be found in the state.
  Will Welton Harness, of Hardy and Will Cunningham, of Upper Tract, Pendleton Co, have gone to Chicago for stock cattle.


CABIN RUN SCHOOLS

  ED TRIBUNE: There are eight public schools in progress in Cabin Run dist this term. Below is a list of them with their teachers names respectively appended:
  Headsville, Nannie Wagoner; Reese, C L Bane; Grove, T D Arnold;;; Gate, Sallie Welton; Cabin Run, I N Rogers; Thrush, A G McAllister; Lost, W H Swadley; Beaver Run, G S Arnold. The enumeration of last year is 254. OF those, a little over 200 are attending the schools in this district and several are attending school elsewhere. The average is near 160. The amount of salary per month is $255, term of school, 4 months. There are two or three comfortable school houses in this district. We imagine the Board has under a kind of visionary contemplation one or two important changes. The necessary for one change arises from a fact which may be illustrated by a circumstance, experienced by a hunter:
At a convenient spot he saw two turkeys very near each other. Wishing to get both, he concluded that he could shoot between them and kill them, consequently he missed both. Just so with the school-house to which we refer. It is a central point between two neighborhoods, and not at a central point in one neighborhood.
  It is true of this district, as well as of most of others, there is too high a per cent of absence, but the attendance is as good as fair work can make it.
GEO S ARNOLD, C O SUP
