It Is that impurity In tlio blood, which, ac
cumulating In the glands of the neck, pro
duces unsightly lumps or swellings; which
causes palntul running sores on the arms,
legs, or tcct; which dcvclopes ulcers In the
eyes, ears, or nose, often causing blindness or
deafness; which is tho origin of pimples, can
cerous growths, or the many other manifesto
tlons usually ascribed to "humors;" which,
fastening upon the lungs, causes consumption
and death. Suing the most ancient, it is tho
most general of all diseases or affections, for
very few persons are entirely free from it.
By taking Hood's Sarsaparllla, which, by
tho remarkable cures it has accomplished,
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven Itself to be a potent and peculiar
medicine tor this disease. Some of these
cures are really wonderful. If you suffer from
scrofula, be sure to try Hood's Sarsaparllla.
My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore neck from the time she was 22 months
old till she became six years of age. Lumps
formed In her neck, and one of them after
growing to the size of a pigeon's egg, became
a running sore for over three years. We gave
.her Hood's Sarsaparllla, when tho lump and
n indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, and now she seems to bo a healthy
child." J. S. Carlilk, Naurlght, N. J.

The excursion to Norfolk, Va., by
a number of the members attending
the meeting of the Tennessee Press
Association at Bristol, proved a most
pleasant finale to that delightful
meeting. The trip was made over
the Norfolk & Western Railroad, the
distance from Bristol to Norfolk
being 408 miles. This is the road of
which the notorious Wm. Mahone
was president for many years. Ma
hone built that portion of the road
between Norfolk and Petersburg, a
distance of 81 miles, and with the
exception of one long sweeping curve
to get into Norfolk, the track is as
straight as an arrow between the two
cities. Through Mahone's manage
ment the various consolidations were
effected which formed the road into
one continuous trunk line between
Norfolk and Bristol. The road ha3
a number of important branches, be
iug almost a rival of Tennessee's
favorite road, the Nashville, Chatta
nooga & St. Louis, in this particular.
The schedule time for through trains
between Bristol and Norfolk is
twelve hours, but owing to the im
mense traffic over the road, there are
numerous delays, and it is a rare
thing for one of their through trains
to be on time. In this particular it is
very dissimilar to the N. C. & St. L.,
which has the best record in the U.
S., for running its trains on time,
with the exception of one little road
of less than 100 miles in length in
New England which has no connec
tionatomake. 'iheJN.& w. has a
large force of men at work now, how
ever, laying a double track over
several divisions of the road, and as
soon as this can be completed the
immense business of the road can be
handled with much more facility,
and rassencer trains can make better

When our party reached Norfolk
-,ve were met at the depot by a com
mittee of the Business Men's Asso'
ciation and members of the local
press. Street cars were in waiting to
to convey us to tho New Atlantic
Hotel, where all were comfortably
quartered. And we want to say
right here that a traveler does not
often meet with such pleasant and
genteel attentions, and such efforts
to accommodate guests as
at the Atlantic. Tho clerks seemed
to find pleasure in answering ques
tions and rendering every service
conducive to the pleasure of guests,
and all of the servants and waiters
were on the alert and responded
promptly to every request. The
house is first class in all of its appoint
ments, spreads a splendid table, and
the rates are reasonable.
A number of the editors assembled
at the club rooms of the Business
Men's Association shortly after ar
rival, where several speeches of wel
come and responses were made, and
a bountiful luncheon was enjoyed.
At 5 o'clock the entire party was
taken on board the steam tug, Ports
mouth, belonging to the New York,
Philadelphia & Norfolk Railroad,
and taken on a trio to all points of
interest around the harbor.and finally
to Old Point Comfort, about 14 miles
distant from Norfolk. We were
given half an hour here to look
around the famous Jlygeia Hotel and
Fortress Monroe. Bcturning, we
reached the wharf at Norfolk about
nine o'clock, p. m. Sunday wa3
spent in looking over Norfolk, and
Portsmouth, just across the Elisabeth
River, where the navy yard and ma
rine hospital are located. Sunday

Norfolk, with its genial climato
and numerous surrounding points of
Interest, it seems to us would bo a
delightful place to spend a few weeks
at almost any season of the year,
particularly through the summer.
There are magificient hotels at Old
Point Comfort, Virgina Beech, New
port News, and other points. Nor
folk proper has 40,000 inhabitants,
Portsmouth has 1G.000, and Berkley,
another suburb, has G,000. All of the
business streets or JNonoifc that we
were on are laid with granite, and
the city has a good street car service,
only horse, cars being yet in use,
however. There appears to be a fine
opening there for electric street cars.
Norfolk's newspapers appear to be
behind the age. They have three or
four dailies, all fair local papers, with
some special telegraph service, but
we didn't see a line of Associated
Press news In any of them. They
all have large advertising. A full
er acquaintance with the place might
put a different face upon matters, but
judging from what we saw on our
brief trip, there is a fine opening at
Norfolk for a modern progressive
daily newspaper. A clever, more
friendly and hospitable people can
not be found in any city.
The leadinsr citizens and business
men of Norfolk extended to us every
courtesy and attention that true Vir
ginia hospitality of the old school
type could suggest. There was only
one regretable feature to our visit-
it was too brief.
Magnificent palace steamers ply
between Norfolk and all points on
the Atlantic seaboard. One can leave
.Norfolk at G o'clock in the afternoon,
and breakfast the next morning in
Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washing
ton, or New York. The Norfolk
harbor is one of the finest on the
globe. A number of important rail
road lines terminate around the har
bor, and it seems destined at an ear
ly day to become the leading South
ern entrepot. A great opportunity
lays before some company of capital
ists to complete the Tennessee Mid
land Railroad to Bristol, and extend
it on to Norfolk. No other railroad
can be located in the South which
would open up as much rich and un
developed country, or which could
command as much traffic. The roads
which now serve the immense terri
tory between the Atlantic ocean and
the Mississippi river, embraced in
the states of Virginia and Tennessee
are already overburdened with bus-
ss, and the material developmen
Of the two states is but begun. Tak
ing a bird's eye view of the country
and noting its immense possibilities
we do not see how the building of
the Tennessee Midland can much
longer be delayed.
Pleasant occasions are quickest to
end, and all too soon our party
turned their faces homeward at 10
o'clock Sunday night. We passed
uristol about z o ciock iuonuay alter
noon. A large number of our new
friends there were at the depot to
say good bye again and bid us God
speed to our homes. By the middle
of the week all were at their places,
picking up the old lines of duty with
renewed vigor, stronger courage, and
broader views of tho world and our
fellow men from the week's mingN
ling and touch with each other.
The City Schools.
In this week's issue will be found a
card from the Superintendent of the
City Schools announcing their open
ing on Monday August 18th.
The course has been fully amended
by the Board of Education.
Among important changes we note
the following :
1. The new course of study is now
eleven years in length, and is divi
ded into three departments: Pri
mary, Grammar, and High School.
2. The High School department
embraces three classes,and gives three
years in Latin, with optional studies
for pupils who do not wish to take
3. Free tuition will be given each
year to as many as thirty students
who have taught school within the
twelve months previous to entrance.
4. The tuition for the four grades
of the Primary school is $1.00 per
month : for the four crades of the
Grammar school f 1.50 per month
and fer the three classes of the High
school $2.00 per month.
This is about the cheapest tuition
we have ever known, and we predict
that the people of our county will not
be slow to avail themselves of the
benefit of it.

McMinnville City Schools.
To The Feoptei Under orders
from the Board of Education, I shall
open all the city schools on Monday,
Aug. 18, 1890.
Tickets of admission should be se
cured next week, if possible, from
the Secretary, Mr. Pv. M. Reams, at
the Standard office. Much confu
sion is thereby avoided.
All pupils expecting to attend
school should present themselves on
the day of opening, and parents who
study their own, and their children's,
interests should not fail to see that
this is done.
The average pupil who starts be
hind stays behind; it is impoasible
for teachers to do mnch with chil
dren who are permitted to straggle
into school any time during the ses
sion. In. their public school system the
people of McMinnville are very for
tunate. The day is past when the poor can
get no education for Jack of means.
Here in this fair mountain city, good
schooling for poor and rich is alike
almost as free as water to those who
The Board of Education have been
at great pains to make the course of
study full and thorough, and I assert,
knowing what I say, that no town or
city in the state has a better or fuller
public school course than yours.
Let me impress upon you the ne
cessity of sending in your children
the first day. To show you how
necessary this is, I need only say that
the Nashville Public 'schools, follow
ing the lead of the greatest cities in
the nation, take no pupils after the
second month of the term, declar
mgthat "after that time it does not
profit them and injures classes."
Every child of school age in this
town should be sent to school the
first day, and kept there each 4ay of
the session, unless too ill to go.
I shall be happy to see parents and
visitors at the different schools any
time during the ensueing session,
and hope that everybody interested
in school work, in the prosperity of
the town, and in the welfare of our
common country, will pay us fre
quent calls. Respectfully,
