EAGLE PASS. !
Celebration or the Fourth and a Splendid Time
tnioted t all. I
We had a ery enjoyable celebration
of the urth under .he auspice of the
ladles of the l.plscopal church. All our
best citizens with their families at-
tended the proceedings which were I
held on the elevated arounds on San f
Jttan plaza lately purchased by Illshop
Elliott for church purposes. On arriv
ing on the ground an animated view
presented Itself. All our principal citi-
zens with their families our pretty girls
In latest styles of summer alllre and
the llttlo folks In gala dresses the gay
decorations ot the plara and the spirited
nml correct muslo of the Eagle I'ass
Juvenile brnst band all combined to
make a delightful scene-one which
could not hut forcibly Impress upon tho
minds of many of our older residents
tho vast strides Eagle l'ass has made
during recent years In all that makes n
community worth living In It may be
safely asserted that live or oven four
years ago such a gathering ns that
which attended last night would have
been Impossible. The Declaration of
Independence was read by Captain C.
W. N. Cunningham and an eloquent
oration Was delivered by Captain J. F.
Lewis and was warmly applauded by
'an appreciative audience. The band
played Yankee Doodle anil several pop-
ular aire. Pretty little girls disposed of
delicious lee cream fur the benefit of the
church fund and the evening was one of
unalloyeu pleasure. -More man passing
mention should be made of our Juvenile
brass band of which our citizens are
usiiy prouu. composed oi a ttoen
irlcht little fellows Irom seven to thir
teen years of age not ono of whom
knew a note or had ever handled a brass
Instrument until within tho past six
months they now read music with facil-
ity and lilay alarge number of airs with
remarkable precision. Professor Pas-
qual De llona who has gratuitously In-
structed tho boys Is entitled to unstinted
praise for his phenomenal success.

A ROMANTIC MARRIAGE.
A Southern Couple Married with a Forged Cer
A letter to the Richmond Dispatch
from Staunton Va. says there has been
considerable excitement there for sev.
eral days oyer a marriage which was
made In Joke but turns out to be a se
rlous matter.. Miss E. Drew Glbhs of
Mississippi who graduated two weeks
ago at tbe Wesleyan Female Seminary
told her friends last Sunday afternoon
that she was going to drive In the coun
try with a friend II. F. Wilder or Geor-
gia. Two young ladles and three or
four young gentlemen accompanied
them. They returned some hours af-
terward Miss Glbbs going to tho bouse
or some friends and Mr. Wilder to the
hotel and leaving here the next day.
It leaked out tbe next day that there
had been a marriage under the follow-
lly some means which so far remain a
mystery a blank form of marriage li-
cense such as is used In the County
Clerk's olllce here was obtained and
filled In with the names of the parties
as above the bride's ace belnc nut at
22. and the groom at 23. bis business a
railroad conductor ami all the usual
questions answered to which was
signed the name of J. II. Itoberts Dep-
The parties furnished with this paper
E resented themselves to Iter. George A.
ong at Mount Sidney some eight miles
from Staunton on tbe Winchester pike
and by him the marriage ceremony was
duly and solemnly performed as Is cer-
tified to over his signature the certificate
bearing date Juno IS 18S4. The license
was returned to the City Clerk's olllce
and Newton Argenbrlght the Clerk
promptly wrote tho following endorse
ment upon it:
"The within license was returned to
this office this 17th June 1881 Said
license was not Issued from this olllce
and no application fo the Issue thereof
10 " within named parties was ever
made to mo at the date given or at any
other time. No person by the name of
J. II. Thomas was ever detiutv In this
olllce and Is totally unknown to me. In
J't. d ""'"
Newtox AiinmniiiaiiT Clerk."
jt SRU tho parties to the marriage
had been emraired. thouch thcr had
never tnct till within a week or two be-
fore the marriage and that the bride
and groom and their friends accompany-
ing them all regarded the matter In the
light ofa Joke at first but thoso better
Informed as to tho law assert that the
marriage la a legal one and nothing hut
a divorce can annul It. The matter has
therefore assumed a very serious shape.
The groom has disappeared tho bride
remains In Staunton nnd her friends
havo been Informed or the unpleasant
affair. It Is also stated that the Attorney
General or Mississippi who Is. perhaps.
n relative ol the bride has telegraphed
that be will be In Staunton In a few days
to Investigate the matter.

The Magnetic Man of Maine.
S York Itturto Han Ilranclsco Argonaut
The influence which Mr. Maine exer
cises over people with whom lie comes
In contact Is extraordinary. I met a re
porter of a morning pnper who Inter-
viewed lllalno when that eminent
leader passed through New York on his
way to Maine a few days ago. "I had
often heard of tbo magnetism of
Maine" said tho reporter "but I was
more or less skeptical about It. Peoplo
talk so much about his magnetism that
tho average newspaper reader expects
when ne meets i a no to see mat ureal
man make two or three passes before
his eyes inesmerlzo him and then get In
bis deudlv work. 1 went over to Inter
view Maine with a good deal or tho
same xensatlon that a man feels when
he goes upon the stage to bo toyed with
uy a presiiaigiiateur neioro a large ami
satirical audience. I climbed Into tbo
palace car where ho sat. and saw him
stretched at ease on one of tho forward
scats. I said for the sake of conven
tionaiity in the paper next morning
that a number or llotvcrs were on a seat
beside Mr. lllalno. In realltv. however.
Mr. lllalno was sitting on the flowers;
the seat was strewn three Inches thlok
with them and Mr. Maine had thrown
himself carelessly upon the flowers and
stretched out Ids legs upon the forward
scat. When I went In and Introduced
myself be Jumped to his feet gave me a
grip as hearty as a prize-fighter's and
pulled roe down Into tbe seat besldo
liltn. As be talked he would bring his
left hand down with a whack on my
leg and when he laughed the car fairly
rung with the muslo of his voice. When
I got up I thought I was leaving one of

What Is this foreign policy of the Ite-
publlcan party? It Is the ancient policy
announced by the fathers of tho Itepuh-
lloand practiced by every self-respecting
administration since the foundation
of the government and practiced to ad-
vance the American nation to tho high-
est place among the nations or tbe earth.
A policy to protect American citizens

HOTTEST OF THE SEASON.
SUNDAY AND ITS VARIETY OF ATT R AC-
TIONS IN THE CITY AND OUT 0FIT.
The Medlns Park ticurslon-Setlilng the Coot
Shadis ortho Gardens Dancing and
The heat yesterday was Intense and
scarcely a suspicion ot breeze tempered
Its power during the entire day. Tbe
thermometer showed yesterday to be
the hottest of the season. The elder aim
rf every one was to keep cool and
escapo the situ. One delightful oppor-
tunity was presented In the excursion
that Mr. P. II. Freer Inaugurated to tho
Medina park. Two excursion trains
were runout to the park lrom tho city
ono leaving nt 0 o'clock In tho morning
and the other leaving at 2 in the after-
noon. Tho early train carried a goodly
crowd but tho 2 o'clock train caught
tho majority and when Its load had
been emptied nt tho park the scene wns
greatly enlivened. This was the first
excursion of the season and the trip was
taken advantage or by a host or over
healed denizens who had becoino sur
feited with the attractions offered In tho
city and longed for r change and a cool
sequestered spot In wblch to pass tho
day. Everything passed ofl pleasantly
In the main and only an occasional In-
cident occtired to disturb tho peace and
lulclmle. A slight difference about
sonio beef precipitated a collision be-
tween two men present but they wero
quickly quieted and order once more
restored. A few quaffed too deeply tho
refreshing lager and In consequence be
came slightly mixed but nothing serious
occurred. 'Ihcso excursions aro a great
treat and jtro eagerly taken advantage
of to escape for a day from tbo hot city
and Its clouds or penetrating dust. At
night the returning trains poured their
crowds Into the illy refreshed and
pleased by tho trip.
Last night the reporter on his rambles
in search of Hems and a place to keep
cool found himself beneath tho shadows
or the sturdy oaks at Jonas' garden
with tho silvery moonbeams glistening
on their verdant leaves. Professor King
tho athlete was entertaining an im-
mense crowd which was so great that
room could not bo found on the largo
platform for its accommodation. The
scene presented wns an Interesting one
and showed that tbo happy throng bad
thrown care to tho winds nnd was
bent on tho full enjoyment of tho
charming evening. Tho Fourth of July
exhibition nt this garden was Immense
and Jonas did himself credit by 'the pat-
riots display ho inado. After the per-
formance last night the floor was cleared
ot tbebenehes anil chairs and the dancers
took possession and kept It until the
hours grew small.
Strolling henco the reporter next
brought tip nt Sotnmers' popular garden
where also he round an Immense crowd
seeking pleasure and refreshment. Tho
polished floor or the large platform sup-
ported the feet or many merry dancers
who found It Impossible to resist the en-
trancing strains that camo In rbytbmlo
flow from tho band. When the danco
was done the tired terpslcbercans
sought the refreshing shades or the ar
bors ami witn tue smiting moonuoams
stealing through the clustering leaves
refreshed themselves with the Icy liquids
at hand and exchanged soft sentimental
ities wnue tney awaited uio nrst notes
of the next dance to call them
again to tho floor. Many visitors
find their way to this cool
retreat and there laugh defiance to Old
Sol anil his burning rays. The air Is
ever cool and pleasant here nnd one
Antra all tho attractions and moro that
are drawn from a day's trip to the coun
The melodious strains of tho splendid
new orchestra drew many witliln tbe

ger to bis gates. Tbe music the sort
