AVII^L ATSIC FOR PARDON.
AV'm. Mclvenny ajid Jesse Rudie, white
youlhs, were sentenced to tifteen days
in jaii on the charge of stealing coal from
a Chcsapeake and Ohio car in Rocketts.
It is a common practice to pilfer coal
from the railroad yards. where many
loaded ca.rs are constantly on the tracks.
The young men claimed to have pick?*d
the coal from the ground, but two rail?
road dotectives swore thc-y saw them on
top tlie car.
The fact that the circumstances of the
young men was said' not to be a temp
tation to them to steal fuel. makes the
theft all the more surprising and shows
the looseness with which the crime ls
regarded in circles adjaccnt to the rail?
road yards. An effort will be made to
secure their pardon. The sentence was
the lightest ever given for such offences.

FIA^ Jan. 20.?The following is a Ietter

describlng the pleasufe of hunting and
AVe were camping this week on Lake
AVdnder and having more deer on hand
than we needed or could preserve. we
sent our Cracker cook and a one horse
wagon with two to our lodging place and
he returned Friday with our mall and
ln It were two papers bearing on them
the familiar initials "H. C. A." Iteally,
it was not so much to add to the luxurics
of our friends at t'he lodgings that wc
sent in the deer as it was that I might
hear from my wife and dear little "kid"
way yonder in old A'irginia. Our. pine
smoked messcnger returned with a bun
dle of pleasant letters from home and
the papers, and at an hour that we were
cooped undcr our tent, sheltering from
one of these tropical downpours that
come in sheets like the sails of a sloop.
We had just pulled off our soaked leg
glns and changed our clothcs. taken a
"Joe Darter" of old AMrginia rye?so
after eating an unearthly dinner of
frrits (Florida currency) with brown ven
ison gravy and assisted in making way
with a pot full of stewed venison ribs
and otlic-r food rongenial to these two
items on the bill of fare, I coilcd up or.
my wire cot upon mybcdding that I had
put in a pile, covered* for additional pro
tection, with my old "saddle bags law
yer" rubber cape. , There 1 read the news
from home: there I was a begrimed hun
ter with ali the wiids of a primeval
forest around me; way yonder. where 1
am known as a country lawyer. was my
wife and little ones: letters from them
hoping that I was well and happy: fril
ing. in he::.vy pattcrs were the rain drops
on the canvas, streaming from tlie yic-ld
ing palmetto fans. that ?hot out from the
trunks of these aristocrats of the forest.
There was a kind of pleasant pathos n
ali thls that would stir even the man who
confesses that he is impelled now and
then to steal away and gralify his sav
age instincts. Then I read Pendleton or.
the good old "has beens" of Tazewell and
found among them far greater and bettcr
men than I who were described for their
prowess as slayers of deer and bear.
The hunting party was composed of
Mr. Bailantine. my. erstwhlle friend from
New Jersey, Beal, a native FloridSan. the
best woodsmen and hunter I c-ver saw?
and a born good man: our native
i-racker cook and your humble servent.
Our hunting ground was around about
Lake AVinder. about 1? miies S. AV. of
here. AVe had two small one pony-wug
ons?these carried our tent, cots and bed
ding?camping outfit. Bailantine bad a
light buckboard In which we drove two
Florida ponies and in this we rode and
carried our guns and hunting togs. AA'e
put our tent at a- spot where the poor
Seminoles urcd to canip, close by a fresh
water pond and amid a palmetto and pine
" grove. rlght on the edge of the prarie.-?
that sproad out westward to the shcre
of the lake. To the east, back as we had
come, was the Ilat'pine wcods?the trees
lov.- and sparce?the undor growth of low
saw palms?here and there in round.
oblong or straight narrow beds: about
would be small hummocks, thick with
many different Irees, often the sombre
live oak, covered with thick hanging
moss. enlivened by the grecn glisten of
the thick fo!t::god r.agnolia. SIoi^'.s
here, ponds there, water everywhere, but
ull covered with an amber sea of fragile,
wavy sedge grass, not thick. Two great
old horned owls came and interviewed tis.
hooting their froggy coarse low hoots?
and now and then their fiendish attempts
at a laugh.--- They stayed around ali the
time we were there. -Seven or* eight
whooping crancs stood a few hundred
yards off. their heads just aboye the tall
grass. Our dogs put thrce cobns up .1
little pine nearby, nnd they sat there till
dark. AA'e shot on the road enough par
tridges for supper?eat the brea-fast
from bacon?but none of that tatne
t-ommodity after that.
Next morning we were 011 our ponies at
S o'clock. w-aiting till that time for ihe
deer to i=eok enver and lie down. AVe had
two dogs, beautiful hounds. one a gamey
youngster that was raiher fast. the ot!ier
the perfection of a trained <>?er dog. AVe
did not go more than a quarter of a m'le
from caimp until tva struek a irial. which
provnd to be that of a doe and yearling.
The young dog was sonn '"strung" by a
slrong cord and that tied to the saddle
and handled by Eoa'. The old dog then
noifvlessly fto'.lowcd the trail. very Tnttch
as a setter roading birds. AVe got into a
pond of hlgh swlich srrass nnd the deer
ran- out?one being crippled by Beal. AAre
found blootl and followed on too soon,
the deer stcipplng on t'he prajrie in a bed
of low saw palmetto not over five hun?
dred yards from us. AVe then walted on
the track, after she had ?scaped us, for
a,n hour, giving time to hide and lia
down?then we again took up the trail and
followdng it about a mile: I rode her up
in hlgh grass and by that time she was
pretty well done up. Still she chased
around till I shot four timt/s at her in th?
brush from horsebaek before we bagged
her. For two more. successive mornlngs
we killed a. deer, one of them .falling c
clusively to my g-un?a Iarge fat doe.
Though sha had ssveral shots in her. I
enclose you the one that d"d the work,
cntering ju.<=t behind the ribs. ranging for
ward and lodging in hcr neck.
V?*hen ovi dogs showed signs cf f;xpect
ing the deer to "rip." we nsually d's
tnouiited, and then it was wading in water
knee deep, now and then, which I did for
at least two Ihours each day, headins
around small switch-grass ponds and pal?
metto patches. Now. Alderson, ali this
looks kind o' savage. dosen't it? AVhat

left home so reluetantly in my life? the.
wear and tear of-work had made me timid
and narrow: I was full of eold and out of
trim?ln fact?cowardly. and shrunk from
tr.e task, but I never enjoyed one of these
outihgs so much. Going from here we
drove eipht miles on a shell roa'd down

body of water. The land owners, through

"Among the different remedies

Peruna Is not a "cure-all": it.'cures.'Juat;
one dlsease?catarrh; " But since catairbHs
able-to fasten Itself withln the duTerent
organs of the body,- so it is that Peruna
cures affectlons of these organsi. But we
Insist that Peruna cures one dlsease only.

sclentific remedy for catarrh yet devfeed.
AVe claim that catarrh is a systemlc dls?
ease; that is to say, It invades the whoie
system. AVe claim :that Peruna Isa sys
temic remedy; that is to say. it eradicate?
catarrh from thc system. Catarrh is not
a-local disease; Peruna is not a local rem?
edy. Since catarrh invades the system.
' only a systemlc remedy can reachr it.
This is, in brief. our claim In assignlng to
th? dlsease?catarrh?our remedy. Peruna.
