tleirowu in debate and their conception of senatorial duty is not tobe assailed lightly The chief exception that can be taken to then is that their usefulness is too often impaired by a petty spirit partisanship This is a fair criticism a jjudicial estimate The list given is of those who are men of experience and ability Among these will be foqnd some who are giants in every sense of the word As

DANGEROUS Neglect of the First Warning Symp toms is the Prime Cause ofso Many Deaths from the Dreaded Brlghts Diseases a riI It is Easily Curable in the Early StagesII I Kidney diseased arc so destructive to i human life because they do not manifest I alarming symptoms until the constitution is seriously weakened and the strength exhausted Then too often the remedies employed by many physi clans are of indifferent or doubtful value and the patient rapidly sinks under the disease The wisest course is to applCC reliable kidney and liver remedy on the f first appearance of the symptoms A C 1 little uneasiness in the small of the back I digestive troubles bowel irregularities and disorder in the urinary organs arc matters small moment in the estimation of strong men and women yet they have a serious meaning They show clearly that the kidneys are suffering and need help which must be forthcoming j at once to prevent serious per haps fatal consequences A few doses of Prickly Ash Bitters at this time would J prove of incalculable value in restoring the weakened organs to health AnJJ investment of one dollar in a bottle ofI Prickly Ash Bitters when the disease is yet in the early stage will savehundreds of dollars in doctors bills besides the suffering that would surely follow should the disease be allowed to fasten itself in this body The excellent curative power of Prickly Ash Bitters is not confined to the first stages of Icidney disease It is equally efficacious in severe or chronic cues Physicians have used it as a last renort in cases that defied their best efforts with the most brilliant results and it has shown its superiority over the many socalled kidney cures now being loudly advertised in instances innumerable Accept no substitute Insist on having

on large prisms ajid cylinders Some of these cylinders are as much as ttwo feet n length and eight to ten inches in fllnmeter says Harpers Maga ine Being made of the same ma uiial as the tablets they are nec ssarily henry and cumbersome yet thy were in some ways more onvfiKcnt for reading since they vrre perforated longitudinally md placed on a spindle sons to re volve In some cases the writing runs from end to end of the cylin der which is then suspended horizontally In other cases the cylin der is uprighti the columns run nin from top to bottom In the Matter case the book is nrually not Ii ttrue cylinder but a prison of six eight or ten sides each side in scribed with a separate column f writing like the pnpe If a book These prisms and cylinders were onimonfy selected by the kings to

Magazine 4 SAt r MAKING OF FINE LACES I Xearevt Americana Can Coma to the Imported Article Is a Cheap jh Imitation Fine laces said W W Chace to a Louisville Herald man con stitute one of the most readily sal able classes of merchandise which is imported to this country and it is a source of wonder that American genius has not devised someway in which to meet this demand with a domestic article which will serve the purpose and can be sold at something like the same price But it has not he continued We have had many machines in vented but the nearest we can come is to manufacture a type of lace which is naturally cheap and does not in any sense approach its handmade foreign rival Of course American women could be taught in time to knit such fine fabrics as their sisters do in Ireland England France Germany and Spain but we in this country are too busy snaking money to waste lime in that way I have traveled all over Europe nnd the most interesting method of making lace over there that 1 came across was at Plauen Ger many It is woven on a kind of bolting cloth made of fine silk and after the pattern is completed Ji certain acid parts of which are kept secret iis applied and the bolting I cloth eaten away leaving only the lace They also have a way of altering the strength of the acid in order to give the lace a rich old color TESTING CHRONOMETER Delicate Timepieces Kept on Ie for Months for Accurate Ad justment Each year the chronometers of the United States navy are sub jetted to u test to determine their accuracy and to correct any irreg ularities This operation con minces in January and usually lasts until the middle of June nail during that time these delicate timepieces are kept on ice at the United States naval observatory It iis not for any fear that they will si oil that they are subjected to thisi frigid experience but it is nec essary for the purpose of accurate adjustment that they should all be maintained in a constant temper ature The necessity of having a ships clocks all absolutely alike will be realized by the layman when he is reminded that nn error of four seconds in the chronometer means an error of a mile in calculating the vessels location The temperature varies at different times of the test from 50 to DO degrees and the losing or gaining qualities of the chronometer under these con ditions are accurately kept Thus with a chart expressing in curves just what lie may expect from his I chronometer under different con ditions of climate and with his thermometer nnd barometer close at hand a sailing master may calculate to a nicety the correct time and get his location to a certainty CHARACTER OF AN OATH Witness Thought It Was Like a Note with Which Some People Pay Debts One of the lawmakers from faraway Oregon where there is plenty of gold and silver tells of a wi- tn3 who gave his explanation of what constituted an oath relates the Washington Times Col Timmius a onehorse law yer had contracted a debt which it seemed he never intended to Huqidate Suit was instituted on the note but the colonel swore the note off However the plaintiff proved the debt and obtained judgment Not long after this tIll colonel was interested in another case in court and was crossques tioning one of the witnesses a gen tleman who had been interested in the colonels case in the suit on the noteDo you know the nature of an oath 1 asked the colonel- I think I do answered the wit ness Then tell the judge and jury I what it is A oath is like a notea legal tender with which some people try to pay their debts Softest Language The Turkish language is said by scholars to be the softest and mostt musical of modern times be ing better adapted to the purpose of musical notation and recitation than even the Italian VESSELS WITH BAD NAMES ODM la tIM Irittah IUY7 TUI 1N k Destined to Beet with 15 Disaster JJ tt If one ihould be BO bold at to characterize the superstitious sailor as silly he would at once declare that there is sufficient reason for his belief and would proceed to prove that war vessels named after stinging and venomous things have been unlucky and that the country should not be so indifferent to the men who follow a life on the ocean wave as to or ganize a mosquito fleet says the Wavy League Journal That Snake is regarded as an un fortunate name for a vessel is shown by the fact that two of that name have been lost one in 1781 nd the other in 1847 but no vessel bearing that name is known to exist now Serpent which is only a substitute name for Snake Iis an unlucky one also for the one wrecked in 1892 was the fourth British war vessel of that name to meet the same fate Viper has been an unlucky name in the Brit ish navy The first one was wrecked in 1780 but the admiralty would not swerve and so kept the name on the list each vessel meeting its doom and the fourth was lost only recently The French navy has also been unlucky with vessels so nam ed The Viper used in the British service after she became a prize from the French was lost in 1793 The second was lost a year later the third in 1797 and the fourth was recently lost in a collision off GuernseyThe another British war vessel was lost recently at the same time as the Viper Among other vessels similarly named and which met fates other than in bat tie are the Rattlesnake in 1781 the Alligator in 1782 the Croco dile in 1784 the Adder in 1840 three Lizards two Dragons and one Basilisk All of these were of the British navy The list could be made larger by citing the rec ords of other navies The Norsemen who were so fond of naming their vessels against the laws of superstition and using hid coils heads of dragons and reptiles on their high prows were lees un fortunate and these did not meet with frequent disasters Theydid have a belief however that it was unlucky and a sacrilege to select such a name as did Lord Dunraven for his first yacht to challenge for the Americas cup the Valkyrie Anti this belief was strengthened when she was sunk by the Satan ita The second challenger with the same name gave trouble and she was broken up after only a short existence BEAUTIES OF HOLY LAND The Sun Is the Magician That TWTM the Dull Xarthto a Picture of Splendor In the Sunday Magazine of London Archdeacon Sinclair who was there recently gives a glowing description of Palestine I was struck he says by its special and wonderful beauty The sun is the magician of the Holy Land painting its plains and hills with the loveliest hues and light ing up all Wit l magnificent splen dor at sunrise and sunset The country is far more mountainous than I had realized Then again there was great beauty in the fountains sad streams pure and clear fromLr limestone country and sometimes flowing with great freedom Perhaps the crowning feature of beauty in the north of Palestine fire the glorious snowclad slopes of Mount liermon which can be seen from the top of every paiSII among the hills glittering and gleaming in the pure blue vault I The flowers particularly struck Dr Sinclair who finds it impossi ble to do justice to their beauty and brilliancy t Mineral Oil in India The production of mineral oil

Point Comfort Buck Roe Beach Fortress Monroe the Old Sol diers Home and the Agricultural and Industrial school for the colored race and the Indians are tho chief places of importance in this little county Hampton con twins about twelve licensed sa loons and Phoebus about fifty The greater portion of the saloons in Phoebus are kept by bad women who run in connection with their saloons disreputable houses These houses and saloons are sup ported chiefly by the old soldiers the army of soldiers at the fort ailors of the navy whose ships often winter in Hampton Roads the citizens of Hampton and Phoebus and the hotel visitors at Old Point Comfort and Buck Roe Beach They all do- an immense business and millions of money are taken in by these evil doers and servants of Satan It has been said that a fooland his money soon part So it is with the old soldier and his pen lOn mouey It does him but little good The saloon keepers of Hampton and Phoebus employ Jacks and send alter the old soldier free of charge He gets a free ride from the home to these towns and returns whenever he wishes to The saloon keepers do it to get their money Many of them leave the home with three months pension money in their pockets and return without dpennjv The saloon keepers and hack drivers generally get it The old soldier is made to drink druggedxand then robbed An old soldier who had just drawn his pension money left the home with one hundred dollars He went into a clothing store and bought a suit of clothes for fifteen dollars The merchant changed his bill and have him back eightyfive dollars He went from the store to a saloon and bought a five cent drink This was on Saturday On the following Monday the old soldier awoke in a shed of the saloon Without a cent in his pocket The saloon keeper put something in the whisky which Ihad a soothing effect upon the old soldier and he went to sleep immediately after he took the drink and slept two nights and one day During tits time he was robbed and left alone in an old shed kept for such purposesThe Christians of Elizabeth county had an election and tried to vote out saloons but the judge and a great many church people were in favor of the saloons and the whisky element with the help of many who professed to be Christians won and the saloons still exist because the majority of the people said they wanted themOne prominent business man Rl1d3 member of one of the lead ing churches said if the saloons were driven out he lhad just as well close his store He said bus iness would be dead if the saloons were voted out He sold a set of furniture to a certain house in Phoebus every month The in mates got drunk and together with the old soldiers soldiers from Fortress Monroe and sailor boys who frequented the resort smashed up the furniture and he had an opbortunity of replacing- It every m6nth So it was a mon ey making business for this busi ness man One wholesale merchant was boycotted by the saloon element because he voted against the sa loons They all quit tradidg with him and he lost thousands of dollars worth of trade because he voted as he prayed So Uncle Jakes visit and speech did but little good with 4the old soldiers They are slaves in a worse Condition than ever was the southern slave The gov 1 eminent feeds clothes and fur nishes a beautiful home besides paying them in cash about eighty thousand dollars every quarter to squander in the saloons and houses of bad repute The life these old soldiers live is unatural and the result is discontent lone liness and demoralizaiion The government by treating them in this way makes them miserable instead of adding to their happi ness and joy But for the saloons and disrop utable resorts these old soldiers might be a blessing to themselves and to the community in which they live The saloon leads them into vice and shame and srrong men who fought to free the southern slaves are victims to strong drink and in greater bond age than ever were those whom they once freed To be continued TIME OF TRAINS AT UNION CUT ST North Bound No2 Leaves daily 11 iWa m- No4 Leaves 105 n m No 12 Leaves veekdays 130 p m south Bound No 1 Leaves daily 3 38 p m
