One of the most beautiful weddings ever aeen in Monticello occurred Wednes day evening, the contracting parti*? being Mr. George Newton Conrad of Harrison burg. Va.. and Mis?

Fatalities of lioer War Compared With Other War*. From the N*w York Journal. London. June s.—ln discussing the losses in the Boer war the Pall Mall Gazette ift*r comparing the record of American bat ties, in some of which the losses were as high as 80 per cent., says: “The present war shows nothing even .‘ ? the butchery in former daya in spite of the Mauser rifles and the su perior (?) Boer artillery. Mr. Winston Churchill give? the actual loss of the Ladysmith relief column for the last four teen days’ fighting at 10 per cent, cf the total strength engaged, and this Is about the figure for Colenso and the Modder. “At Magersfonteln the lo?s of the High land Brigade was not less than 35 and r.ot more than 20 per cent. And even the Dublin Fusiliers do not appear to have suffered 30 p*r cent, of punishment in any one action, but the returns are too incom plete to make definite statements. It is worth while, however, to call attention to the fact that the proportion of killed to wounded now seems to be 1 to 6. and in some cases 1 to 10, and instead of half the wounded dying fully 90 per cent, are alleged to have recovered. “It may be, indeed It is very probable, that we shall have many instances of far severer loss to chronicle before we occupy Pretoria, but. since the armament i.ow must remain the same, it i3 evident that : these, if they occur, will be due to some i other cause, and not the Mauser. The I real truth of the matter is that, of all the many conditions that affect the question j of losses in battle, armament 1? the least to be taken in account, but the. relative qua lit 3' of the men opposing one another I is rh* most important. “Tactical formations only influence the result in proportion to the i-kill of tie .eader who employs them, and his skill Is determined by the great consider at on . whether ‘time* Is or is not the essence of the situation. If ‘time* is of no importance n9 et Paardeberg, it is reasonable to ar range the attack with the l*ast possible risk to your men. as Lord TLoberts actu ally did; but if, as sometimes happens when acting in combination with other columns, ‘time’ is everything, tnen at tacks murt be made to succeed, and the I question of loss is only limited by the quality of the men—the greater the loss in a victorious fight the greater the honor." HEAVY BETTING ON THE RACES. Touts on the Track Arc Offering the t sual Number of Good Tilings. From the New Y’ork Sun. The seoson for "good things" among the regular followers of the race tracks, as well as those who only dabble in dollar bets In the poolrooms. Is at hand, and from now until the snow files the "good tiling" players will be kept busy playing alleged owners' tips, trainers’ tips, fake telegrams, private information and ndvlce from the man who watches the horses gallop every morning and holds a clock on their speed. This same thing happens every spring, and. although thousands of betters hav. lost on the same kind of a game liefoi. there are few. If any of them, who not willing to try It again. Of course. Information they get Is al ways fi . Inside, and if the horse should 1 -• : le first time the betters are sure to >< unsold with the time-worn lout's l a whenever he gives you o loser: "The ? a dc lost heavily, but wait until next time; we'll get it back." The next time arrives, and. although tin horse doesn't look to have a chance earth to win. the better win still remem ber hat he was a "good thing" the la.-t timeout and will invariably play It again Just to get back what he lost. There are some cases where the better has been known to succeed In cashing in 0 "good thing" the second time it ran, hut they ate so few that not many persons can rt tell ihe clrcumatances. So it happens that the "good thing" player generally goes through a whole season backing a horse In the hope that he might be oble to get back what he lost by having a bet on when the horse is at big odds. The crop of "good things" this spring is us plentiful as ever, and men who have listened to the yarns about the wonder ful time these "good things" have made in private, and played them accordingly, and lost, a? usual, will doubtless keep right on backing the horse every time it runs, for the same old purpose of trying to got back what they have lost. There are very few betters who have not got some horse down In their little book that owes them money, and no matter how poor a selling plater he turns out to be they generally have a small bet on whenever the horse is In a race. It doesn't matter what class of horse Is running against him, the better thinks that he might win some day, and he wants to cash hie bet if that day should ever come. w. F.

Spirits Turpentine Goes Off 14 Cents Since Last Friday—Cotton, also. Declines—Rosins Firm at the Ad vance Local and Telegraphic Market*. Morning News Office. Jure 5 —The week brought declines in both the cotton and naval stores markets. Cotton dropped dur ing the early days, and spirits turpentine went downward throughout the week, closing to-day at a loss of l - cent 9 below last Friday. Towards the middle of the week a decid ed weakness developed in the market for turpentine, due in part to the free offer ings in the face of an indifferent demand. The result i? a drop last Saturd .7 from 47 to 45Vfe cents. A weakness was shown on that day, the eff-icts of w*hich caused a decline of L cent. From then on the market has been weak, and condition* have been such that prices yielded despite the efforts of factors to sustain them. The week’s sales were about 4.00) casks and the balance which changed hand? was used in making deliveries. While the trade Avas inclined to take a better view of the situation to-day. it is the current belief that the market has not yet struck bottom, ar.d that next week may witness further declines. The part of the receipts being used in making deliveries is not sufficient to interfere with the demand, whichein turn is tco light to support the market much. Th© larger buyers are pretty well fixed with future contra':?, which relieves them from entering the market except for the pur pose of supplying their Immediate needs. Contracts for Beptember-December de livery are being entered into by some on the basis of 45 cents. It is currently re ported that large offers to sp ri.s on this basus have been turned down by fac tors. who believe the stuff will fetch a better price. Nothing of interest was reported from the naval stores belt during the week, furfher than that the weather had been favorable for work, and that it was being pushed wi h all haste the present small force of hands will allow*. In Georgia and Florida factors say a great deal of trouble is not had with the teibor now engaged, most of the laborers being colored, but in sections of Alabama, and particularly where a w hite element has crept in, labor organizations are beginning to make trouble on a small scale. Nothing of a serious nature is looked for. however. Those complaining seek the usual redress —fnore pay end shorter hours. Shorter hours on turpentine farms just now is out of the question with producers, so that appeals to them for redress of this sort are no; apt to meet with muon success. The wholesale markets were steady ar.d active, with no changes of consequence reported. The following resume of the different markets will show the tone and quotations at the clo.sing to-day; COTTON. The cotton market closed nominal and unchanged to-day. The week closes at a decline of Lc below last Friday’s prices. A general dullness, and lack of demand from any source, gave the market a weak 'tone, and brought declines which may be followed by others before, the-re Is a re vival of business.

New York, Jur. - B.—Speculation In cot ton futures was not active, to-day and from the highest to the lowest the active options showed range of only 4 points, except on the summer months, which fluctuated pcin's. The market open ed steady, with prices points higher. | this being ised to a matter of 3*57 points soon aft r on light covering an'd purchases for Southern account. Senti ment was inclined to lean toward the bull side, as repors from Texas concerning the crop condition were not encouraging, while a number of sections In the central belt also sent gloomy reports. Toward midday rumor gained ciruclation to t.-e effect that two prominent operators had secured control of the long interest in New Orleans, and were already squeezing near month ?hor ?. though more particu larly oversold July parities. It was also reported 4hat there wa? to be a like move ment here. These reports kept the bear faction in an uneasy frame of mind, par ticularly as the recent course of summer months here and the Sou h has been up ward with to-day’s advance, reaching 14 points on July. Conservative parties were skeptical, however, and disposed to ridicule the nfcws. The warehouses were poorly sup plied with business and new speculation in general failed to develop on a liberal j s^ale. New York. June 8 —Cotton futures opened steady and closed quiet and steady.

New York, June 8 —Hubbard Bros. & Cos. say: Liverpool market will be closed until Monday. In the meantime, his market is expected to range within a nar row limit until the action of the Man chester spinners Is more fully developed. It is now time for the monsoon to break ! in India, and the question of <he relief j to that suffering country, will be eoon decided. A local demand from a short in terest In July gave tone to the nearby deliveries. After the recent sharp de cline, the markets are expected to remain in an uncertain condition, with many minor fluctuations, until the main factors of trade Bnd crop are more clearly de fined. The local interest is no longer dis posed to anticipate a further sharp break unless crop reports improve throughout the cotton belt. New York. June S.—Murphy & Cos. say: This market ruled firmer on shorts cov ering and some fresh buying, influenced | by repor's of excessive rains in Alabama and Missisippi. Advices from the latter 1 state indicate flooding of some of the low lands. Liverpool sold new crop deliveries moderately. The continent bought sum mer deliveries moderately.

New Y’ork, June B.—The combination bull movement in wheat and bear move ment in stocks; which rs an annual fea ture at some period of the growing crop, made its appearance to-day. The wheat market advanced in an excited way on tie increasing volume of rumors of disaster to spring wheat in the Northwest. Wall street had similar advices and apparently the conviction that serious harm has al ready been done to the spring wheat gained force steadily during the. day. There is growing uneasiness as’ well over the rate situation among railroads west of Chicago. The fact that the late break in the prices of Western railroad shares was coincident with the delibera tions of the committee appointed by the presidents of Western railroads to con cert a plan for division of traffic, gave force to the supposition that the prospect for a satisfactory settlement is not very good. Failing such a settlement, there is said to be a likelihood of a widespread and costly rate war. Coming In com bination with the bad reports from the wheat country, this served to effectually break the market, and pritass went to pieces in the last half hour of the trad ing, the weakness spreading from tne Grangers, Pacific and Southwesterns into the trunk lines and specialties, and em bracing the whole list. This break came after a day of persistent dudness and ir regular fluctuations in prices. The incident immediately preceding the break was an advance of over a point in Reading first preferred, with confident ab sorption of very large offerings. The sec ond preferred rose 2 per cent, in sym pathy. The gain in the first preferred was all wiped out in the final break. A gain in the earnings of the Northern Pacific of 2S per cent, for the fourth week in May did not avail to save that stock from the prevailing weakness in the unfavorable crop prospects, and it fell 2 points. . Missouri Pacific and Bal timore and Offio showed weakness before the general break, on fears of disappoint ment regarding dividends. There was a relaxation of the pressure on foreign markets, due to apprehension over the trouble in China, and London bought stocks here to a moderate extent, causing some slight gains early in th<* day. The preliminary estimates of the hank statement figure out a small loss in cash, owing to the week's heavy absorption by the sub-treasury, which amounted to $3,- 117,00-0, all on account of the call by the treasury of government deposits in the banks. The estimates of receipts from the interior are slightly in excess of those made last Friday, but it will be remem bered that last Friday’s estimates fell short by $1,500,000 of the actual receipt?, so that a gain In cash in to-morrow’s statement, would not be surprising. The market closed aclive and weak at about the lowest. The bond market was very dull and price changes were remarkably small. To tal sales, par value. $1,190,000. United Stales bonds were unchanged in bid quotations. To-day's total slock sales were 2 S S 700 shares.
