North Carolina Regiment, under
the immediate command of Colonel
D II Hill, who was afterwards

Young Wyatt lost his life under
circumstances of the great gallantry
and heroiam. In the beginning of
the battle in which he fell tbe sharp -shooters
of the enemy occupied a

blue and gray. A call was made
Jor volunteers to advance across the
intervening distance, through an
open field 200 yards wide, and lire

to perform the duty. They had
proceeded but a short distance into
the fuld when Henry Wyatt fell

Tbe Baltimore American Pictures
Mr. Ernest Fetzer, a former Con
cord boy, now living in Baltimore,
nss won for nimself high honors iu
military circles of that city. The
Baltimore American of December
30, besides printing a fine picture
of the handsome and popular youi
mm, has the following to say:
Lieut. Ernest Fetzer, one of the
newest lieutenants in the Fourth
Regiment, distinguished himself at
Frostburg, when, as sergeant major
of the regiment, he commanded it
in review. He won his spurs then
in the shape of great respect from
bis superior officers, and his election
to a commission was a logical result
He was born in Concord, N. C,
and educated at the Staunton Mili
tary Academy, where he gained great
pioficlency in the military features.
He enlisted in Company li, Fourth
Regiment, 'M. N. G., November 26,
1890; was appointed corporal Feb
ruary 1st, 1891; promoted sergeant
April 1, 1892, and appointed ser

Ilie issue of the Norfolk Virginian
of Januarv 1st. 1805, consists of
twenty-four pases and contains a
review of the business of Norfolk
for the year 1894, and a comparison
of the trade of 1894. The showing
is a wonaenui exnioit oi gruwiu
and development. 1 1884 the trade
of Norfolk was estimated at $18,
007,500. The business for last year
reached 91,198,343, an increase of
43,190,818. Norfolk's population in
1884 was about 25,000; it is now 50,-
000. Its area was embraced in Sbu
acres; it now occupies 2,470 acres.
Us postal receipts were 43,260.27;
they are now SS3.309.48. The oum,
ber of buildings erected in eight
years was 2,253, at a value of nearly
5,000,000. Last year 443 buildings
were erected at a cost of $951,S38.
The combined population of Nor
folk, with that of Portsmouth,
Berkley, and other towns, amounts
to 100,000. The Virginian proooaes

of this result.

A Fnnny Experience " of a Bridal
"One of the funniest experiences
I remember of my boyhood times
was that of a couple in a neighbors
hood who ran away and got mari
r.ed," said Newt Moore at the Union
depot last evening.
After the bridal tour was over the
couple went to the jouug lady's
home to make pece with the old
folks. The young lady'i father met
them at the door, and, taking his
daughter by the arm thrush ber in
to a room and locked her np, and
gathering up the shot gun ordered
his eon-in-law off the place and
threatened his life if he ever returns
ed. The you og man went home and
sat down and did some hard think
ing. Finally he sent word to the
young lady's mother to come and get
ner daughtei's clothes and every
thing that belongtd to her. She
did bo, and the young man held his
mather-inlaw as a prisoner and
hostage for the return of hi3 wife.
He, too, took a shot gun end stood
guard. The second day after the
father of the young lady came oyer
to negotiate a surrender of prisoners.
As soon as he came in sight he
waved his white handkerchief in
token or a truce. The result was a
mutual exchange of prisoners.
The youns: man made such a
good impression upon his mothen
in-la during htr captivity that
all differences were patched np and
the hatchet was buried." St. Jos

HomeBread, Pa , Jan. '6 - -The
trouble last night at the Homestend
steel works of th i Carnegie Company
was cauied more particularly on ac
count of a number of Hud ariann
having been assigned to that depart
ment than it was by the reduced
wage scale. The .repular crew in
the 11 inch mill refused to work at
the Hungarians and quit. The fact
remains, however, that one of tbe
men was able to earn bnt 60 cents,
another 72 cents for their day'
work. This was because the mill
was not worked to its capacity and
not on account of fault in the wage
scale. This morning the 150 men
comprising the day crew in 18 inch
also quit work.
Superintendent Schwab met the
strikers, and after guaranteeing cer
tain wages for the rest of the week,
whether or not the mill was worked
to its capacity, the men returned to
