Local Editors of the Virglnlan-p I it:
Gentlemen,?All educators will wel?
come your plan of the "Home Study
Circle." There Is a broad field demand?
ing just such work as is here outline i.
Public education Is penetrating the
homes of the great mass of our i ?pl t,
making it.s influence felt by refining the
taste of the public, it Is Interesting to
note that more book-cases are sold In
Portsmouth than In any other . . t y T
the same size In the South; and this, I
believe, can be attributed to the work
of the public schools. Go where y ill
will, however humble the home, tic
best books In literature, history, g -
ography, &c., will be found, and little
Investigation Is required to discover
that the people generally are con?
versant with these books.
The press and the pulpit, the gren!
co-adjutors of the educational forci -
should work in unison and as closely
together with the school as possible.
The newspaper has Its place In the
school-room, and educational work. In
Its restricted meaning, sh mid have its
place in the newspaper; and when the
press undertakes to enter directly i:i
the effort to educate the people by car?
rying on the work of the schools along
the same lines as are pursued by o il
lege? and universities, it would seem
that those engaged In educational work
cannot afford to withhold their besl ?
fort.s to second and sustain the move.
Your writers are men of National r< p'u
tation, and your departments and sub?
jects are well selected, and 1 b Iii
Portsmouth will not be tardy In show?
ing great appreciation Of the opportu
j nlty offered to pursue in an Inexp. hs \.
and pleasant way a truly educational
line of reading.

Mit. JEFF MY ICRS SHOT.
Ho Is Suffering From a Builct Wound
in His Right Breast.
Yesterday morning the friends of Mr.
Jeff Myers, pne of our highly esteemed
citizens, were very much alarmed over
the rumor spread through the elty that
he had been shot and seriously wound?
ed while out hunting.
Inquiry developed the fad that the
rumor was in part true and that the
young gVntlemon had been Injured by u
rifle bullet, but not so seriously as
dame rumor bad heralded
It seems that Mr. My> rs was enjoy?
ing a little sport in the way of hunt?
ing, and while he was pushing his way
through BOme th!< i: undergrowth in
Chimney wood:;. the crack of a rille
rang out and in a t\v'Inkling a 32
allbre bullet had ploughed its way
hrough (he heavy clothing which Mr.
Myers wore Into his right breast, just
about tli? fourth rib.
The shoaling was done by a boy
named Cuthrcll, who, with u party of
friends, wns engaged In firing ni a
nark. The boy. it is said, asserts lliat I
it was n ilobort rifle witii which the,
?it otlng was done and that it was]
purely uccidi ntnl.
Tin? wounded man walked to his
home, on Sixth street, where Dr. F. s.
Hope saw him later and probed for
the bullet, bul failed to locate it. The
Doctor is unable at this time to say
how serious the wound may prove to
be, but at a Into hour last night lie
said that his patient was resting as
comfortably us possible.

Love that Alters.
"Dovci" cot love that niters when it altrratloa
That is one of the sublimes! lines in all
literature. It is the final definition of love
by the world's greatest readei of the human
mind,?Shakespeare. Nearly all women
who truly love, love in this sublime way.
Men seldom do.
Woman's most jrlnrious endowment is
the power to awaken and hold the pure
and holiest love of a worthy man. When
she loses it and still loves on, no one in
the wide world can know the heart agony
she endures. The woman who suffers
from weakness and derangement of her
special womanly organism soon loses the
power tu sway the heart of a man. Her
general health suffers and she loses her
good looks, her attractiveness, her amia?
bility and her power and prestige as a
woman. Dr. lt. V. Pierce, of Buffalo. N.Y.,
with the assistance of his stall of able phy?
sicians, has prescribed for many thousands
of women. He has devised a perfect and
scientific r< medy for women's ailments. It
is known as Dr. I'ierce's Favorite Prescrip?
tion. It is a positive specific for all weak?
nesses, diseases, disorders, displacements,
irregularities, and debilitating drains pe?
culiar to women., It puriti'-s. regulates,
Strengthens and heals. Medicine dealers
s'dl it. and no honest dealer will :u'.\i;e
you to accept a suhstitute that he may
make a little larger profit.
