Complaints are made of disorderly
conduct on the part of young men m
Long View park last evening during
the Y. M. C. A. gathering. On account
of the disturbed condition of the park
this summer owing to the. permanent
improvements bejng made, the park
board has not done' anything about
lighting the grounds, or adopted rules.
With the imperfect lighting and the
dusk of the evening a cover is afforded
for disorderly conduct, and there seems
to be a number of young men who
avail themselves of any opportunity to
be rude. Any future evening gather
ings in the Dark will be under t he su
pervision of the police, and it is the
determination or the park board to
deal harshly with this rough element,
whoever they may be.
The sooner the issue is made the bet
ter, and a few weeks in jail for a few
young men of this class will perhaps
have a tendency to stop this disorder
at all times and under all circumstan
ces in Long View park.
Notice to All Boat Owners.
There will be a public meeting of all

being to establish a place to store theii

STERILIZED BARBER SHOP.
A Famous Shop in the CarroMton Ho
tel, Baltimore, Maryland.
The barber shop in the Carrollton ho
tel, Baltimore, sterilizes everything it
uses in me snop. i ne siermzing is
done by heat. The towels, the razors,
the strops, the soap, the combs and
brushes are all sterilized before being
;ised on a customer. Where there is
no sterilization, have the barber use
Xewbro's Herpicide. It kills the dan-
Iruff germ, and it is an antiseptic for
the scalp, and for the face after shav
ing. All leading barbers everywhere
ippreciate these potent facts about
Herpicide, and they use it. "Destroy
i he cause, you remove the effect." Sold
by leading druggists. Send lOc in
tamps for sample to the Herpicide
