A DISGRACEFUL OCCURRENCE
The disgraceful scenes enacted in
Phoebus Tuesday night when the Ma?
ryland volunteers and the regulars
from Fort Monroe met and engaged in
a. free fight is by no means a good re
"^commendation for Maryland's citizen
' soldiery nor for the men who have
ljeen in the regular service for years
at Fort Monroe.
A rigid Investigation should be made
by the authorities and tlie men who
were guilty of provoking the unseemly
brawl should be dealt with as severely
as the gravity of the offense de?
It seems that the whole row was
brought about by unwise and unchar?
itable criticism of the Maryland troops
by the regulars who, by virtue of their
superior accomplishments dicing able,
as a monkey would be with sufficient
practice, to go through tin- man?
ual of arms better than their less ex?
perienced brothers) felt Justified in
pointing out deficiencies which con?
cerned them less than holiday occa?
sions are supposed to concern the swine
To be sure, the Marylanders were
exceedingly unwise to pay any atten?
tion to the hypercritical "experts'' al
the Fort. If they are too babyish to
stand a little adverse criticism and
"kidding," to use the vernacular, they
should have remained at home so that
their mothers could protect them
from the gibes and sneers that meet
every man iu his intercourse with the
After all. however, tlie main point
is that a number of men, brethren in
arms and sworn to protect the law
and dignity of a great nation, have in?
dulged in a street fight that would dis?
grace a brothel, and the men who were
instrumental in bringing it about
should be taught a lesson which will
show beyond doubt that ruffianism
-will not be tolerated in the American
Prof. Koch, the great Herman scien?
tist, whose alleged consumption cure
brought him into prominence many
years ago, claims to have made an?
other wonderful discovery. After stu?
dying the matier for some time in- has
arrived at the conclusion that the bite
of the mosquito Injects malarial poi?
son Into the human system. In spite
??}-<>t the fact that Professor Koch claims
to have sufficient data upon which to
base his theory, it is by no means likely
Jj^that il IVill make a big hit with those
persons who have experimented with
the condition and not the Uioory of
malaria. It goes without saying that
gAJthe same conditions that are produc?
tive of mosquitoes frequently produce
malaria, but since the fever in many
Instances makes its appearance long
jgijtoefore the mosquito season begins we
fear the doctor will have to invent
something more practical than a mos?
quito protector In order to fend off
this terribly enervating disease.

is one way of expressing a sense
of merriment, but the hot time
some house keepers have in
sweltering over hot ranges with
unsatisfactory fires, with wood,
coal, ashes, dirt and annoyance,
is it any wonder they look
weary and broken down ? But
with a modern gas range all this
trouble disappears. The range
will cook anything?it will do it
quickly, it will do its work bet?
ter and more satisfactory than
any coal range ever made. It
will heat water for the bath or
any purpose, and what is more
the gas range is the most econ?
omical cooker on the market.
Gas at $1.00 per thousand feet
is ten cents a hundred. An aver?
age family can cook three meals
daily with less than 100 feet of
gas. Ask those using gas and
you will see. Those who have
just found out the benefits are
most enthusiastic. We have
known it so long we wonder
why every body don't see it as
we do, but they will soon see it.
We are setting ranges every
day, and every range set brings
along another sounder of its
praises. Call and see us.
