Northumberland county does more
newspaper advertising than any county
in the Northern Neck. Heathsville
pays more for advertising space annually
than any other village in the Northern
Neck. - Heathsville Echo.
We do oot queation thiaatatement;
and wewill add that, what ia lacking
to the town aa an inland village ie
made np by the pnblie spirit and
pu8h of its merchant8 and busineat?
men. Many places with greater nat
ural ad?anlagea fall behiod Heaths?
ville because their roerchanta can't
get out of tbe ruta. They figure a
dollar for advertising on the "loss"
side of the balance, never taking into
accouut the ten-Uollar protit made
on a cuatoiner who would never have
couae but for the presence of an ad
in the local paper. The queereat
argnmentwe ever heard ia put up by
the merchant who says that he
doean't know of a cuatoiner his ad
brougbt. Why, oiau, it is often the
case that the cuBtomer himeelf does
not know the ad took him to that
particular store ! If he does, he sel
dom mentiona it; but nine timea out
of teu an ad appearing several times
unconsciously fixea the place or waree
iu bia mind and equally aa uncon
scious he drifta into that store aud
huya. Publicity is what makes a
thing go; and you can't get publicity
Some ahip builder8 have made

The reason for this iu late years haa
been the exceaaive price of Jabor and
the ahort houra of work. A Vir?

RENOUNCING AN IDOL.
(N.w Vork Sun, May 3rd.)
While Mr. Rryan has been rattling
around the Mew England circuit, dis
tributing his presence and his speeches
with an industryand aneargerness that
could not beexceeded if he were actually
Cie Democratic candidate for President,
there are renewed signs in Virginia of a
disposition to resent his continued domi
nation of his party for the exploitation
of his personal and non-Democratic
notions. The initiative and referendum
seems to have been the last straw. The
Roanoke World makes the obvious re
mark that this panacea is "not Demo?
cratic doctrine in any sense"; and it re
minds Mr. Rryan that the Democratic
party has let him dictate its platform
twiee and been twice defeated :
"Certainly the time has come when
he should cease his dictations, and at
k ast give the party the high privilege
of framing its own platform. When
that isdone, if Mr. Rryan does not like
it he can refuse to be put upon it, and
that would really be the manly thing
for him to do." B
The Virginia Citizen reads him out of
the party and insists that Democrata
should nominatesomebody else, whether
Mr. Rryan likes it or lumps it:
"Hehas undoubtediy put himself be
yond the pale of a possible Presidency.
He?or rather politicians who are afraid
to speak for themselves?may force
Wilham J. Rryan upon Democracy as a
nominee, but in such event both he
and our party aredeadducksnationally
"We believe the time to be drawing
near when Democrats should begin to
centre upon worthy and ayailable men
and for our part we are willing to abide
the decision of the best minds in our
ranks. Let us start the ball, and put
up men that are men, even if our per?
sonal preferences are to be knocked
4lown; let them be of Mr. Rryan's lik
ing if he will like them, but if not,
then get outside his camp."
It remains to be seen if such voices of
common sense will find willing ears, and
if the romantic passion or infatuation of
the Democracy for the Peerless can be
chilled. Mr. Rryan and defeat are in
separable. It would seem that the
Democrata had sacrificed enough to that
idol. American politics, however, has
become a matter of hero worship in both

Signal honor is was paid Vice-Ad
miral Sir Gero Ijuin, commander of the
Japanese squadron in Hampton Roads.
He is the ranking naval officer in the
waters ofT the Jamestown Exposition
Grounds, and every commander of the
American and foreign fleets had to
call upon him. The first to call was
Admiral Davis, of the American fleet,
representing Admiral Evans, who is
sick with gout.
The next great day at the Exposition
will beTidewater Virginia Day, onJune
7, when all of the cities, towns and
counties in this part of Virginia, from
the Eastern Shore to Williamsburg and
from Norfolk county to Southampton,
will join in a great celebration. Nor?
folk will that day likely see thegreatest
parade in her history. Every lodge and
labor organization, military and semi
military organization will be in line.
Tuesday night at the Chamberlin Gen.
Grant gave a handsome reception to
Gen. Kuroki, the Japanese hero, which
was a brilliant affair. Mrs. Swanson.
wife of Virginia's Executive, was lady
of honor and was escorted to the recep?
tion by General Grant. Kuroki, is bald.
dark and short, though not particularly
stout. He is emblazoned with medals.
Not speaking English, he carries with
him an interpreter.
Ambassador Bryce, Mrs. Rryce and
I^dy Evelyn Gray, daughter of the
Governor-General of Canada, were the
guests of Governor and Mrs. Swanson
Sunday, going to Jamestown Island the
following day. The English notables
were charmed with their entertainment,
saying that the Virginia reception and
hospitality surpassedany tendered them
in this country. The dinner given them
at the Executive Mansion in Richmond
Mr. Rryce pronounced the finest he had
been tendered in America.
Somewhere east of Chicago today, a
full-blooded Indian, White Cloud, chief
of the Poncas, mounted upon one of the
finest speciments of horse flesh ever pro
duced by Oklahoma, is riding at full
speed toward the nation's capital. The
Indian is the messenger chosen by the
officers of the famous "101 Ranch," to
carry the solid gold miniature tablet,
upon which is written an invitation to
President Rooscvelt toattend the open
ing of the "101 Ranch and Wild West"
at the Jamestown Exposition, May 20.
The sheet of precious metal and the
engraving thereon are said to be won
derful examples of the goldsmith's art.
The "101" is being moved from Bliss,
Okla., to the Exposition grounds on two
trains of forty-eight cars each.
The most striking feature of James?
town day. Monday, was the night water
carnival on Hampton Roads. It was of
unprecedented brilliancy, and the elec
trical illumination of April 26th is only
a memory as compared with the grandeur
of the great spectacle May Utk
Aside from the illumination of the war
ships of the home and foreign fleets,
there were floats of rare beauty and
brilliancy. The day had passed off
without a jar or accident. Gens. Kuroki
and Grant had reviewed the troops and
marines, and but for a carnival accident
at night everything would have been
well. J. T. Beard was drowned and
eleven other sailors and Lieut. R. C.
Bulmer, all of the battleship Kearsarge,
had a swim for life when a 8ightseeing

Rostock, the "Animal King," has
erecteda new palatial$25,000structure.
wherein he has established one more of
the diamond belt of Rostock arenas.
After unceasing effort, allied to an unus
ual equipmentof inherited andacquired
skill amounting to absolute genius,
Rostock has brought the professional
training of wild animals to a higher
and more enthralling level. The aggre
gation of wild animals to be presented
in the Bostock arena at Pine Beach will
admittedly be the very finest, the most
interesting ever brought together in
this or any other country, marking a
record down-to-date of Zoological Ex
hibition. Rears, elephants, hyenas,
leopards, tigers, polars, pumas, etc,
etc, will be found therein, grouped in
scenic cages reproducing in startling
reality the features of their natural
habitat; but the gem, perhaps, of this
admiration-compelling collection will be
found in the magnificent forestb-red
lions, the monarchs of the jungre, of
whom Rostock is so justly proud. The
arena is thrown open to the public
EGGS AS MONEY PRODCERS.
In the month of April Messrs. Simon
Hirsh & Bro. bought and shipped 29,
500 dozen eggs. The amount paid
out for same was about $4,500. There
are many other dealers in eggs here
who buy largely and it is safe to esti
mate that there was brought here from
the counties around in the month of
April 100,000 dozen eggs. At 15 cents
per dozen, which is a fair average price,
our farmers got $15,000 from thissource
for the month. The annual receipts
from eggs in the United States exceed
those of the wheat and corn crops corh
bined. ?Free Lance.

FISH AND OYSTER NOTES
Police bug-eye Poeomoke delivered to
Irvington this week twohandsome crab- \
bing skiffs, with sails, which she had
captured from Marylanders crabbing in
E. G. Hall, one of Northumberland's
successful fishermen, sent R. S.
Mitcholl, of Irvington. a rock fish Tues?
day which weighed a little upward <>f
30 pounds. While suspended on a |K>le
run through its gills and placed upon
two men's shoulders the fish's taii
touched the ground.
Sturgeon, varying in length from three
inches to three feet are daily being
caught in the James river, in the im
mediate vicinity of Richmond. Old
and experienced fishermen can give
no cause for their untimely appearance
in these waters. The little sturgeon
perfect shaped and having every
appearance of being close kinsman to a
tish similar in species weighing hundreds
of pounds, won't bite at a hook, can't
be lured into a trap, and the only way
to catch them is in a net.
One of the greatest runs of herring
in Maryland waters in many years is
now on. For a week large schools of
the fish have been moving toward the
headwaters of the fresh water streams
in the upper part of the bay until every
waterway north of the Patapsco is fairly
alive with the members of the finny
tribe. The markets are becoming
glutted with the fish. In many
sections farmers have gone into
the herring catching business, and
are using the results of their heavy
catches for fertilizer purposes, hauling
the fish from the shore directly to the
fields. "Jim" Maddox, a fisherman,
report that he was caught in the midst
of a large school of herring in the Gun
powder river, and his boat was fairly
carried along on the backs of the fish
despite his efforts at the oars to stem
the tide. According to Maddox he was
carried nearly a mile out of his course
before he succeeded in extricating his
boat from the school. White Marsh run,
one of the tributaries of the Gunpowder
river, is very shallow and is an ideal place
for the fish to deposit their spawn. At
times the run becomes so great that the
fish choke up narrow portions of the
stream and form a dam. At these points
the residents for miles around gather
and with dip netsdip out the fish in large
numbers. The fish caught by the resi?
dents are salted down. ? Baltimore

Mr. Shirley E. Tuck, of Baltimore,
shot himself in the head while seated at

He was preparing to go to New York

called Mrs. Tuck, who was in the yard
with her 14-month-old son. She hur
ried to the room and found her husband
lying on the floor with blood streaming
from abulletwound in the right temple.
The shot had entered the right temple
and came out behind the left ear from
which he died in a few minutes. Mem?
bers of the family said there was no
reason that they knew of for suicide
and they believe the shooting was ac
cidental. Mr. Tuck was a native of
