YOU WILL MISS ME. THE ROANOKE NEWS. THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 24. 1891. "Sometime 7011 will mias me, darliug, When the loug night ahiulows fall, I akall be beyond the starlight, And Itball not hear you call. Yon will oftimes at midnight, And will think of one dear head That yoar boeom soltly pillowed— Bwting among the deaii! “All the precioua love you gave me In the olden, happy time, You will think ol', uiid wewvo it Deftly int* heartfelt rhyme. Yon will miaa me—it miiiit be iio, But perhapfi our Uod will give IToto me the power to cheer you And watch o’er you while yon live. "I shall come if he is williu}(, At the lonely niidniKht hour, And my preMcm'ijsolt mounil you Shall enfold when storm-vlouda luwer. Shielding you Ironi every evil. Though you muy not see my face, I wilt never leave you lonely— There uliull l)u no vaeaut place. "All the hopes and iispirntions, All ihu precious love we’ve kiionn, Tliis !>',mll draw onr houIh together Kounil the great Kternul Throne. Do not mourn for me, niy darling, Meekly bear the cha.stening rod— Think that I am with you always I, who love you next to God.” SOUTHERN PORTS. THE FUTUllE OUTLETS WU WESTEU.V ORAIN. The Manvfactnrera Rccord of Sep tember 12 says; The rcccnt advancc in cotton, and the assurance ol' tho large.st jjrain crops ibr many years, haveftill further strongtheDed the positiou of the South in all business and financial matters, and everything in dicates a very nctivc winter and spring. The tendency of capital seeking invest ment must inevitably be Southward, for no other country possesses such wonder ful resources, and nowhere else are the possibilities of profitable development so promising. The increasing importance of the South’s foreign trade and the posi tion of t^outhern ports as the future out let for the grain of the West is illustrated by the fact that Galveston is to have a 1,000,000-bushels elevator and New Or leans one of 300,000 bushels capacity, while the grain trade at Norfolk has de- ▼eloped so rapidly that the elevator there has been unable to handle the business, and a floating elevator has been .'secured from New York, and even one of the big coal piers is being used in helping to transfer the immense traffic from the cars to the steamships, while some days ago the Norfolk & Western had nearly 600 grain- loaded cars on the track at Norfolk. This rapid growth of the export business of the South, added to the industrial devel opment that has been going on fur the last few years, will greatly enhance the prosperity of thig whole section. New industrial enterprises are daily being organized, and as this is not a speculative period, they must all be of a solid char acter. marriage: 18 A VAILURG When either of tho parties marries for money.

STAND UP IN THE CORNKR AND LET MK SUOOX A OIUCOFl' VOUR N08E. “Have you got any nerve?’' asked my friend Simpson, as wo halted before a saloon in Toughville, i^lonc. ‘•What if I haven't?" I answered eva sively. “I askod for information. You are a stranger here; you kimw, and you don’t tuck your punts in your bouts, or talk about our private graveyard, or anything like that, and as I've gut to go in hero and interview tho proprietor I won't take ycu along unless your nerve will stand it." “(Jo in,” I answered laennically. Wo entered a long, low-ceiled mom with a bar at on» oDil. Several card tahli's were scattered about at which geiillomen of rather unsavory appeuranee and reckli's.s iiinnnciH were playing. While my friend wus transacting his business with tho pri)|irietor I drew a chair into a corner and tried to appear perfectly at home. Taking a cigar from my pocket I eaiiuly placed it between my lips and lighted it, when—whiz! it was knocked clear out of niy mouth by a pistol ball. I never so much as winked an eye! I I did not even turn to see who had done I the firing, but, with the greatest coolness, 1 I drew another cigar from niy pocket I and lighted it. I leaned back in niy I chair and smoked with extreme noncha- ! lance—I don’t think, I have ever before or since, been so utterly and so hopelessly Don'^halantasnpon tho occasion set forth. As I smoked, the ashes naturally ac cumulated upon the end of my weed, and I was just thinking of knocking them off when that unknown friend with his convenient pistol performed tho ser vice for me. Everyone in the saloon was looking in iny direction, but did not show the barest tip of a white feather. I puffed away, with head thrown baek and a dreamy contented expression on my face that I would have tried in vain to pro duce under ordinary circumstances. Again the ashes accumulated, and again the timely bullet removed them. .\t this stage I found myself wonder ing how I was going to keep my nerve when that cigar had burned down to a mere stump and my friend's marksman ship would be required to pick it out from between my teeth. But I was equal to the emergency, and when my cheroot was two-thirds gone I held it out between my thumb und fore finger, while the unknown shot it out with a skill that was remarkable. Then I dusted my hands, brushed the ashes from my clothes and joined my friend at the door. Before we could leave the room, however, a man in a blue shirt and buckskin leggins, carrying a six-shooter in his hand, approached and embraced me. “Say pard, dern my pictur if I hain’t cican gone on yer nerve. Heie's a buck eye that I've carried ever since I broke jaii in Ohio en come hyer. Take iteo Wear it in yer pants' pocket for the sake of Vermillion Pete, the all ’round ter ror of Bitter Creek. An’, pard?" “Well?” “Say, I want yer to stand up therein the comer en let me shoot a dime off yer nose ” “Come on hero," said my friend Simp son, as he yanked me through the door by the tail of my coat, without giving me time to frame a reply. Bat I was glad he did it. A dime isn't very thick, and then Vermillion Pete might have missed it.—Exchange. “ noii’t Care To Bat.” It is with the greatest confidence that Hood’s Sarssporilla is recorammended for loss of appetite, indigestion, sick head ache, and iimil»r troubles.
