amine our rates, and the advantages we offer, feeling
assured that if they do so we shall have a large pat
ronage from that quarter. To our own Conference
people we say, here is your School. Will you make
it the best in the State—an institution which the
whole Church will be proud of? or will you let it lan
guish for the want of the patronage you are sending
elsewhere ? We call upon you to rally to your church
School. We challenge any School ot a similar grade
in the land to present a better standard of gradation
than the W. F. Institute. We invite special atten
tion to the course of study laid down in the Catalogue.

This tract has been for years regarded as one of the
finest in this region of country. It lies within one
mile of Culpeper Court House, immediately on the
Orange and Alexandria Railroad. About 92 acres
are in timber, the residue cleared and in a high state
of improvement, improved by its late owner with a
view solely to productiveness and with no expectation
of selling it. It is divided into seven fields, with nev
er failing water in each, flowing to the South, giving
to nearly the whole of the land an Eastern, Southern
and South-Eastern exposure. It is thoroughly drain

stone. The soil ia of the gravelly, red-vein of Pied
mont-Viiginia, finely adapted to the growth of corn,
wheat and the various grasses. The improvements

houses of the most substantial character. For fertili
ty of soil, facilities to market, healthiness and beauty
of location, advantages ot society, of schools, church
es, &c, there is rarely ollered for sale so desirable an
estate. It could be conveniently divided into three
tracts so as to give an abundant supply of never-fail
ing water to each. The purchaser wilt have the elec

"Flat Grounds," about one mile distant, containing
176 Acres; and so much of a larger tract of 507 A
cres of wood land also in the "Flat Grounds," about a
mile further off, as he may choose, at prices to be
made known by us before the sale of "Greenwood."

not to take the one hundred and seventy-six acre tract,
that will be sold immediately after the sale of "Green
3rd. Should the purchaser of "Greenwood," elect
not to take the five hundred and seven acre tract, or
only a part thereof; it, or so much thereof as the pur
chaser of "Greenwood" shall not take, will be sold
immediately after the sale of the one hundred and
seventy six acre tract. The five hundred and seven
acre tract is covered with a fine growth of Timber,
consisting of white oak, post-oak, hickory, ash, Ac.

The proprietors and manufacturers of HOS
TETTER'S CELEBRATED STOMACH BIT
TERS can appeal with perfect confidence to
physicians and citizens generally of the United
States, because the article has attained a repu
tation heretofore unknown. A few facts upon
this point will speak more powerfully than
volumes of bare assertion or blazoning puffery.
The consumption of Hostetter's Stomach Bit
ters for the last year amounted to over a half
million bottles, and from its manifest steady
increase in times past, it is evident that during
the coming year the consumption will reach
near one million bottles. This immense amount
conld never have been sold but for the rare
medicinal properties contained in the prepara
tion, and the sanction of the most prominent
physicians in those sections of the country
where the article is best known, who not only
recommend the Bitters to their patients, but
are ready at all times to give testimonials to its
efficacy in all cases of stomachic derangements
and the diseases resulting therefrom.
This is not a temporary popularity, obtained
by extraordinary efforts in the way of trum
peting the qualities of the Bitters, but a solid
estimation of an invaluable medicine, which ia
destined to be as enduring as time itself.
Hostetter's Stomach Bitters have proved
a Godsend to regions where fever and ague
and various other bilious complaints have
counted their victims by hundreds. To be
able to state confidently that the "Bitters"
are a certain cure for the Dyspepsia and like
diseases, is to the proprietors a source of un
alloyed pleasure. It removes all morbid matter
from the stomach, purifies the blood, and
imparts renewed vitality to the nervous system,
giving it that tone and energy indispensable
for the restoration of health. It operates upon
the stomach, liver, and other digestive organs,
mildly but powerfully, and soon restores then?
to a condition essential to the healthy discharge
of the functions of nature.
Elderly persons may use the Bitters daily as
per directions on the bottle, and they will find
in it a stimulant peculiarly adapted to comfort
declining years, as it is pleasant to the palate,
invigorating to the bowels, excellent as a tonic,
and rejuvenating generally. We have the evi
dence of thousands of aged men and women
who have experienced the benefit of using this
preparation while suffering from stomach de
rangements and general debility; acting under
the advice of physicians, they have abandoned
all deleterious drugs and fairly tested the
merits of this article. A few words to the
gentler sez. There are certain periods when
their cares are so harassing that many of them
sink under the trial. The relation of mother
and child is so absorbingly tender, that the
mother, especially if she be young, is apt to
forget her own health in her extreme anxiety
for her infant. Should the period of maternity
arrive during the summer season, the wear of
body and mind is generally aggravated. Here,
then, is a necessity for a stimulant to recupe
rate the energies of the system, and enable the
mother to bear up under her exhausting trials
and responsibilities. Nursing mothers gene
rally prefer the Bitters to all other invigora
tors that receive the endorsement of physi
cians, because it is agreeable to the taste aa
well as certain to give a permanent
of bodily strength.

THE PERSIAN FEVER CHARM.;
FOR the prevention and cure of Fever and Ague and
Bilious Fever. This wonderful remedy was
brought to the knowledge of tho present proprietors
by a friend who bas been a great traveler in Persia
and the Holy Land.
While going down the River Euphrates, he experi
enced a severe attack of Fever and Ague. On dis
covering his condition one of the Boatmen took from
his person an Amulet saying, "Wbae this anu no
Fbver will touch you." Although incredulous as
to its virtues; he complied, and experienced imme
diate relief, and has since always found it an effectu
al protection from all malarious complaints.
On further investigation he found that the boatman
attributed to it miraculous powers, and said that it
could only be obtained from the Priests of the Sun.—
Sometime afterwards, the gentleman in conversing
with a Priest obtained from him the secret of its prep
aration, and ascertained where the medicinal herbs
were found, of which it was compounded. The won
derful virtues of this article have induced a full belief
in the minds of the natives in the miraculous healing
powers of their Priests.
Since his return to America, it has been tried with
the happiest effect by several Ladies and Gentlemen
of high character, who have given it the most unqual
ified praise. This remedy having been a specific in
Persia for hundreds of years, for the prevention and
cure of Fever and Ague and Bilious Fevers—is now
offered to the American people.
It will be sent by mail, prepaid, with full directions
for use, on receipt of one dollar
