"I have for several years bad in con*
temptation the establishment of a week

p)tune time for undertaking it. In?
tending to devote my life to the study
and dlsonssion of public questions, I have
taken this method, beoause it will best
accomplish the purpose which I bave
in view Through a paper I will be
able to keep in toaoh with soolal, eoo
nomio, and politioal problems. The
paper will, at the same time, if suc?
cessful, provide an income sufficient for
any pecuniary needs, and this kind of
work will allow me more time with
my family than I have been able to en?
joy for several years past.
"I expect to leoture occasionally,
especially in oollege towns, where I
oan speak to students ; but my princi?
pal work will be done with the pen ;
or, porhjps I should say, with the pen
oil.

Montross, Va., Dec. 17th. 11)00.
The very favorable weather of the
fall and winter thus far has furnished
an opportunity to do much farm work
that usually takes up the farmers' time
in ?prtng, such as fenoing, grabbing,
ploughing, etc,?preparing for spring
or. ps Also a good supply of winter
wo (1, cot ready for the stove, or arcb,
is seen at almost ill home places. The
pirk Is butchered and salted down, and
If the winter should be severe, our pet
pie are well propared to meet It.
la the last few days oorn has taken
a lively advance, but there is not suffi?
cient In the county to supply the home
demand, and many farmers are holding
their crop, anticipating ?he scarcity
next spring and summer.
The disease that killed a large num?
ber of valuable horses in this c >unty
has about left us.
Mr. R. A??dale, a thrifty merchant,
d ting business near Baynesvtlle, In this
county, Is engaged In digging a large
ice-hooie on the public road,|and after
digging about 12 feet, the hands came
to soft rock, li whioh was a large
needle and thread, and around which
the rock had grown. The needle is fast
in the rook, the thread is a double
thread, about number 24 cotton, and Is
about 18 lnohes long. Mr. A??dale has
a portion of the rock, needle and cot?
ton at his store, and many have called
to see it. Also near the same spot in
digging was found a number of per?
simmon seed and several coffee grains,
apparently as perfeot as if grown the
present year. At the place where the
digging took plsce noiosideuceor house
of any kind was ever know to be locat?
ed. Mr. A??dale says he has evident?
ly broken op the house-keeping of it me

M .ntp.'ller, which was recently s Id
by Mr. L F. Dttrlck, of Baltimore, to
Mr. 0. K. Lenning. of Philadelphia, Is
one of the famous count!y homes of
Virginia. It was the anoestral home of
James Madison, the fourth Presiden', of
the Uoited States. To this estate,
whioh was famed for its ploturetque
beauty, President Madison took his
bride, the lovely Dolly Payne Todd.
Tne stately oolonial mansion has a
frontage of 152 feet, and is three stories
high. It was built by President Madi?
son shortly before his marriage In 1794.
Within its walls many notable sooial
gatherings were held with the charm?
ing Dolly Madison ss the hostess.
The couple entertained liberally and
many notable people were guests a
Moatpeller. Lafayette visited Presi?
dent Madison there.
The property is situated^ four miles
west of Orange, on the Southern Rail?
way. It was bought by Mr. L. F. De
trick, in 1881 It had a number of own?
ers after the death of Madison and
finally went into the hands of Frank
Carson, of Baltimore, in 1857. He was
a well-known Southern sympathizer
during the civil war, and fearing con?
fiscation by the Federal government,
deeded the property to his brother, who
held the title previous to Mr. Detrlok's
purchase At present the property
embraces 1,230 aores of land. Of
this about 500 acres are in timber,
and the rest is ander cultivation.
The land Is of a rolling character and
is watered by a number of streams. On
the property are the tombs of President
Madison, who was bnrled there in 1836,
and Mrs. Madison .whose death occurred
in 1849 These tombs have been looked
after by the different owners of the
property.
It is believed that the new owner?
Mr. Charles King Lenning, will make
the place his country home, and it is
reported that he oontemplatei using the
land for a itook farm, for whioh it Is
admirably situated.?Orange Obseiver.

Monuments to Famous Men.
An sssooiatlon has been formed in
Richmond for the purpose of raising
the fnnds necessary to the erection of a
monument In one of the publto parks
to the memory of the late Dr. Hunter
Holmes MtGolre, the eminent Rich
mood surgeon, who died a few months
ago. The association Is officered by
women and has the co-operation of
some of the leading men. A consider?
able sum has already been raised.
The fund for the monument to Jeffer*
son Davit, president of the late Confed?
eracy, Is growing, several hundred dol?
lars being received each week. Mrs
Norman V. Randolph, president of
Richmond Chapter of the Daughters of
the Confederacy, It at the head of the
undertaking as ohalrman of the execu?
tive committee. Mrs. Edgar D Taylor,
treasurer of the fund, la recel ring con?
tributions from nearly all the Confed?
erate osmps and ohapters of the United
Daughters of the Confederacy, and
every other available means of securing
money, tuoh at entertainments, tales of
souvenirs, bottons, etc., It being em?
ployed. More than $3,000 was oolleoted
at the recent United Daughters of the
Confederacy convention at Montgomery.
The oorner-stone of the monument was
laid in Monroe Park four years ag -,
bot the location will probably be
changed, the ladies teeming to favor a
g i eat memorial arch on Broad street.
The sitnatlon in world politics at
the close of the Eighteenth Century
was defined oonoisely by The Boston
Oentlnel of April 2,1800 :
The Alls.
France fights all.
BrltWh pays all.
Russia threatens all.
Pruasla humbugs all.
Switzerland is nearly plundered by
all.
Spain does nothing at all.
Germany thinks Itself all In all.
The United States is spoliated by
all.
Aod lest destruction should oome op?
on us all,
May Heaven have meroy upon us all.
Amen.
The position of the United Stttee
among the nations has ohanged some?
what for the better during the past
hundred years.

Look at your tongue,
Is It coated ?
Then you have a bad
taste in your mouth every
morning. Your appetite
Is poor, and food dis?
tresses you. You have
frequent headaches and
are often dizzy. Your
stomach Is weak and
your bowels are always
constipated.
There's an old and re?
liable cure:
??
?m\
Don't take ? cathartic
dose and then stop. Bet?
ter tak* a laxative dose
each night, just enough to
cause one good free move?
ment the day following.
You feel better the
very next day. Your
appetite returns, your
dyspepsia is cured, your
headaches pass away,
4 your tongue clears up.
> your liver acts well, and
* your bowels no longer
give you trouble.

And met the winsome, merry smile

At last she laughed, then sfter while
She cooed aloud in friendly style :
