Our correspondent was indisposed last week which prevented his going to Gordonsville as he intended.

Miss Mary R. Jones has returned from Pittsburgh and spent her Christmas in Gordonsville. Why were a number of subscribers without the PLANET Dec. 31st? Angel says: "he was off in a dream-land among the fairies and forgot to send his order."

Her clothing caught in the pilot and she was violently hurled into the ditch on the side of the track. It was a wonder she was not killed.

"But screw you courage to the sticking place,
And we'll not fall."
