N? Other Week as Quietas
the Quietest Week in Lent,
AFTER - EASTER OAYETY
They Will Be the Qayeet Week? Norfolk
Ever Enjoyed, Because There are
Many More Peopleand They
are Better Able to Be Qay.
(Special to The Ttmet-DUpatcli.)
NORFOLK, VA.? V.troh ?,?-Thls has
beon tho quote? weeW .rit Ltrtt. That
moans, of course, the quietest weok of
tho whole year, for no other weok can
he ns quiet a? the quietest week In Lent
That does not mean that Hiero will be
little doing hem when Easter comes and
gives socloty the permission and the op?
portunity, ot the passage of wittier Mid
tho approach, the enlivening and reln
vigorating spring, to be gay; but It nicane
rather that, having beon so quiet, socle
? ty must bo unusually gay to recover from
the enforced, even If a welcome, restraint
?"?' of religious rest. That Is what socioty is
preparing for. The weeks following Easter
will bo gay. They will be the gayest weeks
Norfolk ever enjoyed because there are
many more people, and they are much j
better able to bo gay than tho people
of Norfolk have been slnco the war. As
during tho winter, this gayoty will not
bo manifested by great functions, to
whloh many persons go to see who clso
is thero and how thoy appear In their
, new clothes, There will bo many small
and genuine entertainments and recep
? tions, where tho members o C the social
sots meet for the recreations, pleasures
and tho delightful and sweet, but inno?
cent, gossip of the season?and for those
charming coquetries which are the essen?
tial accessories of all social gatherings.
As there wero no ovents this week, and
ns society was proparlng to bo gay after
Easter, there Is nothing to write of, ex?
cept visits and visitors and there aro
comparatively few of them.

THE VALUE OF OHARCOAL.
Few People Know How Useful It Is In
Preserving Health and Beauty.
Nearly everybody knows that charcoal
Is tlie safest and most efficient disinfec?
tant and purifier In nature, but few roal
Ize Its value when taken Into the human
svstem for the samo cleansing purpose.
Charcoal le a remedy that the moro
you tako ot It, tho better; It is not a
drug at all, but simply absorbs tho gaaes
and impurities always present la the
stomach and intestines, and carries them
out of the system.
Charcoal ?woolens tho breath after
smokln?, drinking or after eating onions
and other odorous vegetables.
Charooal effectually clears and Improves
tho complexion, it whitens the teeth and
? further acts aa a natural and eminently
It absorbs the Injurious gaees which
collect In the btomach and bowels; it
lUlnfects the mouth and throat from
the poison of catarrh.
All druKgist? aell charcoal In one form
or another; but probably tho best char?
coal and the most for the money is in
Stuart's Absorbent Lozenges; they are
imposed of the fines?, powdered Widow
?barconi and other harmless antis?ptica
?n tablet form, or rather In ><ie form of
latge. pleasant-lasting lozenges, the char?
coal beimi mixed with honey,
The dally use of these lozenges will
goon tell in a much improved condition
of the general health, better complexion,
tweeter breath und purer blood, and tho
joauty of It Is that no po-salble harm can
.??.suit from their eontinuod use, but on
?he contrary, great benefit.
A BuffPlo physician, in speaking of the
benefit* of charcoal ?aye: "I advise
Stuart'* Absorbent Lozenges to all pa?
tient? nuffarlng from gas in tlie stomach
and bowels, and it clears the complexion
and purifi?e *ne breath, mouth and
throat. I also believe the liver t? great?
ly benefited by th-s daily use of them;
they coat but twenty-five cents a box
at drug store?, and although in some
aanse a patent preparation, yet I believe
I get more and better charcoal In Stu?
art'? Absorbent Loxenges then In any of
UM ordinary charcoal tablets,''
