?The Blood is The Life."
Bfcfence has never gone beyond th?
above simple statement oi icripture. Bal
It bos Illuminated that statement and
given It a meaning ever broadening with
tbe Increasing breadth of knowledge.
When the blood Is "bad" or Impure it
Is not alone the body which suffer*
through disease. The brain Is also

In tho euro of scrofulous swellings, en*
largcd glands, open eating ulcers, or old
Pores, tho "Golden Medical Discovery "has
performed tho most marvelous cures. In

It Is well to apply to the open sores Dr. j

Besses wonderful hoaling potency when

Junction with the use of "Golden Medical

tutional treatment. If your druggist

VIRGINIA AND HER CHILDREN.
In variety and richness of material
resources, Virginia holds the first
rank among the American Slates. Bat
a state's wealth lies not In material
thingB bat in men, and Virginia's rich
est asset is not her mines and forests,
her corn and cattle, bat her great army
of children. In the boys and girls of
today are the seeds of the manhood and
the womanhood that are to cons'.itnte
the strength of the state In the next
In recognition of this vital fact Vir
ginia forty years ago established a sys
tem of public schools. It is the busi
ness of state education to meke good
citizens snd capable, efficient trust
worthy workers. For this the state
I schools exist and this ia their only rea
I son of being. There ia no other justifi
cation of taxing one man to school
another man's child. "I look," says
Mr. Jefferson, "to the diffusion of light
and education aB the resoarce moat to
be relied on for ameliorating the con
dition, promoting the virtue, and ad
vancing the happiness of men. Edu
cate and inform the whole mass of th6
psople. No other sore foundation can
be devised for the preservation of free
dom and happiness."
Edacation means more than learning
the three R's. To give the child these
is only to give hiin certain tools that
be may use in gainiog sn edacation.
These tools are of value only as
they open np the realms of nature
aad humanity. Through the ageucy
of good books they give access to the
accumulated experience of the race by
which the life of the individual is en
"If it is the duty of the state to see
(hat its citizens know bow to read, it Ib
no less its duty to see that they are
trained to do the right kind of reading;
otberwiBe the ability to read may be
hcrmful rather than beneficial, both to
the individual and to the slate;" for
bad books stand second to bar-rooms
only aa a source of vice and crimp. If
the state will only save the boys, the
boys will save the state. The reading
; habit aod the taste for good books can
| never be developed withoat access to
book? of the right sort, and this access
it ia (he business of the state to provide.
At its last session the general as
sembly of Virginia made a Bomewbat
tentative appropriation /or Bending out
from the state library small (raveling
libraries (but the country people might
get snm? share in the benefit of that
institution. Results have so amply
shown the wisdom of the experiment
that there can no longer be eny ques
tloa about the wisdom of increasing the
appropriation. The movement Las
found a most hospitable reception with
ine country people and no enlarged ap
propriation of public funds is likelv to
oe received with greater favor thBn one
for sending out good books to every
neighborhood of the state. Aod no ap
propriation will do more In the way of
securing good ?nd lasting returns for the
millions we are investing in public
*cbool?. Surely this is one appropriation
for which every legislator may well
afford to be sirong. [?Fauquier Demo

THREW CLUBS INTO WINDOW.
Henry Westerburg, out of a job, out
at the elbow?, and emaciated for want of
food, juat could not stand the sight of
prospsrity at the Waldorf-Astoria, New
York, last night. Shivering on the
Fifth avenue Btdewalk, be watched the
diners w>tb n, saw the fiddle bows caus
ing the music which he could not hear,
until, with a scream, be lost control of
himself and burled two big Indian clubs
through a plate glass window with a
crash of glass that threw the room io'o
confusion. This done, the carpenter
stood staring stupidly at the jagged bole
be had made until the police came.
Nobody was hurt in the sm?sb, al
though the Indians clubs were thrown
with such force that they passed over
three tables and landed with a thud
across the room, scattering glass right

failure to get work at bis trade, and bow

exhibitions in saloons. People laughed
at him, be said, aod the saloonmen gen
erally put him out without even glvicg
him a bite to eat.
"Last night," h6 said, "I Btarted to
walk over to toe West Side, thinking I
might do better over there, and as I
passed that hotel I looked in and saw
all those people. I was hungry, and as
I stood and looked at everybody eating
