House Election Night. "
(Special to The Tlmes-Dispatch.J
MEHERRIN. VA.. Nov. 7.-ln the past
few months there has been a great m
croase through this section In the cutting
of ra Iroad t.es. For several years thin
business, it seemed, waa almost at a stand
still, and the railroad company was taxpd
to? its utmost In order that It might find
enough to supply the demand.?
Affairs gradually grew worse, and relief
came only when tho price was raised
about six or eight cents for ties, and the
vast number of red oak that heretofore
has been refused by many com?
panies, were contracted for, and the sup?
ply is more than douhl? tho amount of
a year ago.
It was generally conceded by the peo- ,
pie that only a few ties were left In '
the woods, as they had been cut over
so many times, and In this, too, they were
m staken, and the forest seems tp havo
more than heretofore.
Now that election is over, the people
generally are greatly relieved. The fight
was one of tho warmest ever had In this '
county. On the night of election a large ?
crowd congregated at Lunenburg Court?
house to await the returns, and when the
votes were given out by thoae arriving
from the different precincts, the ent.re
village was awakened with applause.
.Many stayed up the entire night waiting
to get tho results. There was some stir
pr'so that Judge Mann's majority In tho
county was not larger, as It was esti?
mated that he would receive at least
30O over his opponent.

Those who have ever felt its keen, cutting paius, or witnessed the intense
suffering of others, know that Rheumatism is torture, ami that it is right?
ly called "The King of Pain."
All do notsuff er alike. Some are suddenly seined with the most excrucia?
ting pains, and it seems every muscle and joint in the body was being torn
asunder. Others feel only occasional slight pains for weeks or months, when
a sudden change in the weather or exposure to damp, chilly winds or night
air brings ou a fierce attack, lasting for days perhaps, and leaving the pa?
tient with a weakened constitution or crippled and deformed for all time.
An acid, polluted condition of the blood is the cause of every forra and
variety of Rheumatism, Muscular, Articular, Acute, Chronic, Inflammatory
and Sciatic, and the blood must be purged and purified before there is an
end to vour aches and pains. External applications, theuseof linimentsand
plasters, do much toward temporary relief, but such treatment docs not reach
the real cause or cleanse the diseased blood ; but S. S.S., the greatest of all
blood purifiers and tonics, does cure Rheumatism b3'antidoting and neutraliz?
ing the poisonous acids and building up tlie weak and sluggish blood. It is
safe and rcl i able in a! 1 forms of Rheumatism. It makes
the old acid blood rich, and the pain-tortured mus?
cles and joints are relieved, the shattered nerves are
made strong, and the entire system is invigorated and
toned up by the use of this great vegetable remedy.
