Letter from Fauquier.
I Correspondence of the Alexandria Gazetith.1
Marshall, Sept. Otb, 1SS7.?Your corres?
pondent baa again been favored to have a
respite from home duties and will venture
to commeud to all workers, whether manual
or professional, always to take rest sometime
during the year. Such will contribute to
health of mind and body. As I was de?
tained for several hours at Riverton Junc?
tion via to Boyce Station neighborhood,
Clarke county, 1 undertook the distribution
of Gospel tracts. One with the title "Never,"
by George C. ; a wag, to whom it was offer?
ed, remarked that "by George," he consid?
ered was sweariug. He was then tried with
"Two Roods," aud premised to seek the
narrow one, though at the time under the |
inspiration of bad whiskey, ho certainly was
on the broad way.
Mr. Sam Morgan, telegraph operator at
Riverton, informed me that he had lately
forwarded to the associated press company
fifteen hundred words in a hour's time, deB
criptive of the festivities of an excursion
party to tho Luray cave.
The most casual observer will not fail to
note the mighty impetus which Northern
capital aud population have already given to
the counties botdering upou the Shenandoah
railroad. The passenger trains are crowded
by travellers aud tourists to the Southern
and Northern cities. In a single train there
were as many as nine hundred excursionists,
visiting Luray cave. The freight trains are
laden with grain, iroo and general mer?
The medical faculty of Marshall has been
lately favored by a visit from an eminent
New York surgeon, Dr. Lewis A. Sayre,
who, with Mrs. Sayre, was the guest during
hsr's sojourn in Fauquier of Dr. A. S. Payne,
of Markhum, Dr. Frost, of Marshall, and of
Mrs. Joues, our wealthy neighbor. Dr.
Sayre has a world wide reputation for skiil
in the treatment of spinal diseases and de?
formities, especially club feet. Drs. Frost,
I Tavenner, of Loudoun county, and Settle,
! of Paris, each brought interesting caBes for
treatment. Our various telephones and tel?
egraph wires had the day previous extend?
ed invitations to tho doctors of tho neigh?
borhood. Among those present were Drs.
Cochraoe, Clark, Slaughter, Copeland,
Green, Settle, Tavenner, Speiden, Clarkson,
Frost, and Messrs. Henry Frost and R. Hor?
ner Wyeth, medical students. A bountiful
repast was extended to the party by Dr. |
Frost, aud tho following day Dr. Sayre saw
at the farmers' hush meeting something re?
sembling an old fashioned Virginia barbe?
cue?minus mint julep. This farmers'
movement, by tho way, mny be commended,
since with the- presence of ladies it must
tend to create kindly feelings and by encour?
aging the formation of farmers' clubs
throughout the "New South" will develop
new industries and ultimately secure a rec?
ognition of tho rights of the industrial
classes by the State aud federal authorities.
We are unable as yet to report much ces?
sation of sickness in our midst. For tho
last three months typhoid fever and dia- I
cases incident to what occurs during a hot
.-ummer und dry autumn, have affected
many of the families of Marshall and the
Wanamakku on Advertising?John
Wanamaker, the great Philadelphia mer?
chant, recently spoke as follows about ad?
"I never in my life used such a thiug as a
poster, or dodger, or band bill. My plan
for fifteen years has been to buy so much
space in a newspaper and fill it up with
what I wanted. I would not givean[advertiee
ment in a newspaper of four hundred cir?
culation for r>,000 dodgers or posters. If I
wanted Xo sell cheap jewelry or run a lottery
scheme I might use posters, but I would not
insult a decent reading public v.'ith hand bills.
The class of people who read such things
are poor material to look to for support in
mercantile affairs. How do I reach news
papers ? I do it in this manner : I never deal
with advertising agents. They always get
the profit tho advertiser should have. I
deal directly with the publisher. I say to
him 'How long will you let me run a col?
umn of matter through your paper for $100
or J'sOO, as the case may be. T let him do
the figuring, and if I think he is not trying
to gouge mor? than hi3 share I give him the
copy. I lay aside the profitB on a particu?
lar line of goods for advertising purposes.?
The first year I laid aside $3,000; last year
I laid aside and spent $40,000. I have done
better this year and shall increase that sum
as the profits warrant it. I owe my success
to the newspapers, and to tbem I shall free?

An Offensive Breath

with whom he comes in contact. It is a
delicate matter to speak of, but it hap part

the stock is non-assessable, and carries with it no personal liability to
TnE Gold Mining Company (location, Music Mountains, A. T .) is as
sound a mining enterprise as was ever placed on the market, and its
possibilities have never been exceeded. Every share should double in ,
value within a year, and they may quadruple, as they are based on
property that would ordinarily have been capitalized ten (10) times as
great on account of its known richness and promise.
The shares are made small so that any one can invest. Subscriptions
for five shares are as welcome as those for hundreds.
Every dollar of earnings will go to the stockholders in dividends, as
there is nothing else that they can be used for.
A Wisewell mill, capacity 20 tons per day, with powerful machinery,
has been purchased and will be on the ground ready for erection at the
mine within the next thirty days.
The solid basis upon which the company is founded and the practical
proofs of the richness of the mine have already secured the conlidence
of the public, and the stock has steadily advanced in selling value.
Within the last few days bona fide sales have been made at pah.
There is no better stock on the market for a permanent investment.
