n The End of the Great Drill.
WASHINGTON, May 30.-The cul
mination of the National Drill was
reached and passed exactly, accord
ing to programme, at 3 o'clock this
1 afternoon, and with every element
o contributing 'to make -the event one
- to be remembered.
The troops, about 2,000 in number,
were drawn up in five lines, their
! centre facing the stand erected in the
it middle of the broad drill enclosure,
o upon which Lieut. Gen. Sheridan
and a brilliantly uniformed staff had
taken their places. Gen. Augur and
staff came on horseback and remained
.emounted during the ceremonial. Gen.
d Ordway, chief of Gen. Augur's staff,
6 formally announced to Gen. Sheridan
- that the troops were assembled, to
rhear the awards and receive the prizes
in accordance with the decision of
the board of judges. An envelope
containing a list of the awards, sealed
>f with a ponderous circle of red wax,
d was then handed by Gen. Ordway to
.Col. Black, chairman of the board of
judges, who itunpassed itoCol.
King, conductor of dress parades.
-This officer rode to a position a few

.the envelope and read the awards,

n moment the colonel of the Virginia
troops came around the stand from
the rear. The troops left Washing
ton for theirhomes last Saturday and
the colonel and lieutenant colonel
were alone on hand to receive the
-prizes. Three half-covered boxes
containing medals were handed to
the colonel by Gen. Sheridan, ..who
then asked if he had anyone to re

away to the rear.
rlthe other prize winning organi

word, marched sword in hand to the
stand, saluted and received from the
lieutenant general the prizes. The
cash awards were contained in open
envelopes, out of which projected the
rends of newly issued national cur
rency in bills of large denominations.
It seemed to be a problem with some
of the proud recipients how to secure

A Bad Nasal Organ.
For over four years I have been a great
dferer from a terrible form of Nasal
tarrh. I was greatly annoyed with a
nstant roaring in my head and my
aring became very much impaired.
the discharge from my nose was pro
se and very offensive,'and my general
alth impaired. I tried most all promi
nt physicians, but they did not cure no
y, and I u4ed various advertised prep- bu
rtions without benefit.
One day I chanced to read a remark
le article written by a prominent citi
n of Athens, Ga., stating that he had
en permanently cured by the use of
rht bottles of B. B. B.-Botanic Blood
jim. Being skeptical on the subject.
vrote to him on the subject and re
ived a most encouraging answer to the
ect that he had been cured long
ough to be thoroughly satisfied that
return of the disease would en u.
I then sent to the drug store of T. E. 1L
ath & Bro., and purchased B. B. B., t
d to my utter astouishmtert and satis
tion, the use of ten bottles has re
)red my general health, stopped the
aring sensation, entirely healed and
red the nasal catarrh and I am proud
recommend a blood remedy with such on
erful enrative properties. cii
I shall continue its use a little
nger and feel confident that I will be 0
tirely cured of one of the most obsti
ae cases of nasal catarrh in the coun
