Educated Thirty Orphans
Miss Emily V. Mason, an aunt of
General Fitzhugh Lee, in spite of her
84 years, is preparing for a trip to
Europe, whioh will be her third voy?
age to the other side. Daring the
civil war Miss Mason devoted here
self to hospital work, and she would
frequently soothe the boys In gray with
the assurance that if they died she
would take care of their children. As a
consequence thirty orphans were sent j
by express to her at Baltimore from
the South after the war, two of whom
f onnd among the ruins of Columbia, and
scarely more than babies, were igno?
rant of their names. With the assist?
ance of friends and the proceeds of the
sole of her collected poems (the first of
which brought her #1,000),she has suc?
ceeded in maintaining and educating
these orphan?, all of whom, with one |
exoeption, are still living and are self
supporting. Her first trip to Europe
was made in 1868.? Philadelphia Re?
Robbed the ?rave.
A startling incident, of which Mr.
John Oliver, of Philadelphia, was the
subject, is narrated as follows: "I
was in a most dreadful condition. My
?kin was almost yellow, eyes sunken,
tongue coated, pain continually in back
and sides, no appetite?gradually grow?
ing weaker day by day. Three physi?
cians had given me up. Fortuuatelv,
a friend advised trying ' Electric Bit
tors ; ' and to my great joy and sur?
prise the first bottle made a decided
improvement. I continued their use
for three weeks, and am now a well
man. I know they saved my life, and
robbed the grave of another victim."
No one should fail to try them. Ooly

AN IMMENSE STOCK.
The great-advance in oil cotton goods has consed as to bay early
the largest stock of goods we hove ever hod. This was necessary
to enoble as to sell them to you ot old prices. This has been the
sharpest advance I have seen in 20 years, except in two instances.
How much higher, or how long the advance will hold, no one con
tell. 80 to be on the safe side I would advise you to boy early whot
We con still sell you s very good Brown Cotton at 3c, o better one
at 4c, snd the best at 5c. My stock has been well bought, and
goods well bought ore half sold.was well said. We honestly believe
we own today one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest stock of goods
in any retail store in Virginia. No matter whot yon wont in
DRY ?00DS OR NOTIONS
try Boker before yon bay, and if we fail to srll yon we will make
?he other fellow sell yon cheap.
