Festival at Danville.
One of the largest crowds ever known
in Danville was present at the festival
held by the band boys Saturday uight.
The proceeds were $51.90.
One of the main features was the
excellent music furnished- by the
Lynchburg band and the boys here are
ready to return the favor at any time.
The Danville boys also acquitted
themselves handsomely. They wish
to take this occasion to thank the
citizens of this community for the
cakes furnished and for all services
The first open air concert will be
given Thursday night, July 2, in which
the boys will appear in their new
uniforms. Everyone cordially invited.

Editor News-Hkuald Seeing some
articles some time ago in you valuable
paper about boys smoking clgarottes,
and later by an "Interested Citizen"
about tobacco, all of which I heartily
endorse, only they dj not make it
strong enough nor go far enough to put
the blame where It belongs I was won
dering If you would publish a few lines
from another old crank, you see twenty
five or thirty years ago they called the
Well, crankssometlmes are very use
f ul things. Large machines are some
tlmesstarted with cranks Saw a man
along the road one day start his auto
mobile by turning a crank. Now listen.
Not many years ago a preacher was
not allowed to say anything against
saloons or the liquor traffic In the pul
pit. It was politics, preaching politics.
Even a woman was not allowed to
make a prohibition speech in a country
church ; had to go to the school house ;
It would ruin the church. See. There
were a few preachers who had back
bone enough to speak out In meeting
but the majority of them kept mum.
But there were a few old cranks
who kept cranking away for they
were as independent as a hog on
ice, for they were not dependent on
any one for salaries nor looking for
votes. But now since It has become
more popular every would be politician
Is trying to get hold of the Prohibition
Crank and speak or read with great
gusto what Lincoln, Woolley, Patter
son, Hobson and all the other big guns
In the Prohibition Party said. The
preachers, too, can just spread them
selves when talking on the temperance
But now listen. When it comes to
another subject and 1 think a very
important one, that Col. Booth, of the
Salvation Army, says Is a' greater
enemy to the country than whiskey
and is ruining more young men and
boys and disqualifying them for busi
ness than whiskey, they are mum.
Now, then, you old crank,-you are hint
ing about tobacco, cigarettes, &c.
Now, what is the use, as a young lady
said last year at Chautauqua Her
subject was, If she had any subject,
"What Is The Use." Among othar
things she said, "a young man or girl
was never satisfied until they were
wed and when wed about six months,
then they wished they were dead "
Then what is the use to say anything
to these old smokers, &c ? A man
said to me in Hlllsboro the first local
option election that was held, "We do
not expect to save or change these old
topers but we want to save the boys."
Now, If we can say something to keep
some boy from using tobacco In any
form and that boy can influence some
other boy and with the assistance of
some of the W. C. T. U , we can start
the ball a rolling and rolling and may
be able to put to shame some of those
Elders, Deacons and Sabbath School
teachers who go around blowing their
stinking tobacco smoke In other peo
Now, listen. Railroad companies
will not haul a drunken man, neither
will they let a man smoke In the same
car that the ladles ride In, for which
they are to be highly commended. But
you go into some stores and even some
banks, where ladles have to trade and
do business and you will see perhaps
the president, cashier and some of the
clerks sucking at an old cigar.
Is there not a law against selling
cigars and tobacco to boys under 18
years of age or to even give it away ?
Is the law kept or enforced'? Say,
Brother Preacher, you had better get
in line, for the fight Is coming on the
tobacco question as it did on the liquor
question. I do not believe in jumping
onto the boys for smoking cigarettes
and letting the old Smokers go free.

Here Are Some Hints That May Help
You Through Your Ordeal.
Everybody dreads the dentist. The
bravest heart quails at the thought of
the man with the forceps. One who
has been through many trying experi
ences with the dentist and who has
made a study of efficiency In all direc
tions claims to have made some dis
coveries that ought to be belpful to
all. Here 'are some of bis suggestions.
Your siege In the dentist chair will be
greatly lightened If you will remember
a few things:
Keep the throat moist by gargling
from time to time as you sit in the
chair wltU water mixed with some an
tiseptic preparation of an ordinary
character'sach as every dentist has at
I. Is not a bad idea before you go to
a dentist to take a bit of chewing gum
in the mouth to promote a free flow
of saliva. If the gum has a flavor,
that will bo helpful and will check the
tendency to dryness of the throat and
the tickling sensation that follows.
Carry a large handkerchief with per
fume or cologne on it, which you can
hold In' your hand and Inhale the
cologne wtonever you have a mo
ment's rest. You will find it very re
freshing. While the dentist is at work
the handkerchief will give your An
gers something to clasp. This may
help to divert your attention from the
work on your teeth.
Relieve the strain upon your throat
Dt every opportunity while the dentist
la changing his instruments by lifting
your head from the chair for oven a
single moment and taking a deep
breath. Shut your eyes and think of
some problem, some particular friend
or of some one in whom you are deep
ly interested. This will divert your
thought from the dentist's work.
Remember that most of the pain we
fear we can escape. In these days
dentistry is less painful than ever be
fore. It will probably never be entire
ly painless, yet much of the work of
the dentist is now done without In
flicting pain, though, of course, it Is
always unpleasant to have any one
operating with steel Instruments in
If a painful moment comes while
yon are sitting in tho chair you can re
lieve It instantly by taking a Ions
breath. Try it and see. Leslie's
