Tue readers of this paper will bo
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to euro in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure Is
the only positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disoaso, requires a con?
stitutional troatment. Hall's Catarrh
Curo is taken internally, acting directly
upon tbe blood aud mucous surfaces of
the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
oonatitutlon and assisting nature In
doing its work. Tho proprietors have
ao much faith in its curative powerB
that they offer One Hundred Dollars for
any case that It fails to cure. Send for

EDUCATION IN TUE SOUTH.
The Dltlloultlo? ?Vliloh Honet the Causo
Annwiu Our 1'oople
Tho Phiiadelpnia Record says: Among
tho hard tulngn which Northum see
tionalista never tiro of saying in dis?
paragement of tho pooplo of tho South
is tho accusation that they aro neglect
ful of the duty of adequato support for
public schools- In a recent discussion
of tho ditUcultios and oncouragomot* of
education in tho South, Profossor
Dreher, prosldont of Roanoke College,
points out sotno of tho chief disabilities
under which tbo Southern people labor.
Ho asserts tho chief drawback to bo tbo
lack of money.
According to the census of 1S90 tho
six New England Statoo, with an area
of 06,405 i-quare miles and a population
of 4,700,745, had an assessed valuation
of 83,567,047*695; and the six Middle
States, including Maryland and the Dis?
trict of Columbia, with an area of
llti.530 square miles and a population of
14,142,075, had an assessed valuation
of 87,818,059,099: while tho thirteen
Southern States (not including Mis?
souri), with an area of S1S.0S5 square
milos and a population of 17,914,890,
had an assessed valuation of only
The New England and tho Middle
States combimd, with an area only
two-ninths that of tho Southern States
and a population greater by only 923,
530, have an assessed valuation of real
and personal property more than three
times as largo as that of tho South. It
will be seen from this comparison that
tho rato of taxation which will provide
pub'Io schools for ten months of tho
year at the North will be sutHclont to
maintain such schools at tho South for
only three and a thirl months in tho
Tho assossed valuation In Massach-j
setts was threo-fifths of that of the
thirteen Southern States. The assessed
valuation of New York was greater than
that of the thirteen Southern States.
Pennsylvania has on assessed valuation
seven times that of Kentucky. Look?
ing at tho comparative outlay for pur?
poses of education in the North and
South, measured by taxable ability to
support schools-, it is doubtful whether
tho North has any superiority to
The sparsenoss of population is
another difficulty the Southerners have
to grapple with, which still further ac?
centuates the contrast between tho
facilities for education North and South.
There are, for example, 117 persons to
the square mile in Pennsylvania, and
only 23 in the Southern Statos. ThiB
obstacle le made more serious by the
fact that a large proportion of tho chil?
dren to be educated in the South are
blacks, and separate schools havo to be
maintained at additional cost.
Pacts llko tbesn. presented in Pro?
fessor Dreher's address, should go far
to relieve our Southern brothren from
tbo imputation sought to bo cast upon
them by sectionalists who still find It
profitable to cultivate tho ignorant voto
the North by abtue of tho South. Pro?
fessor Dreher, who has had twenty-five
years' experience of educational work
In tho South, speaks from personal
knowledge and pays high and deserved
tribute to the desiro of tho Southern
people for better educational facilities,
as evidenced by their courageous and
generous assumption of the burden laid
upon them after the impoverishment
caused by the civil war.
