" For several years I have taken two or
three bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla every
spring for eradicating the humors in tho
blood and for building up tho Bystem

Lent with its attendant period of quiet
has put an end to tho round of social
affairs which followed so clost upon each
other up to Ash Wednesday. There has
been almost nothing in the way of enter?
tainment in tho past t.vo weeks, other
than a few musical events which have
been well attended.
The past season has been 'on9 of unus?
ual activity in Koanoke. TIih number of
card parties, teas, dances and "evenings,"
was greater than for several years. This
was due partially to the fact that enter?
tainment was found to 'abe practicable at
less expense than had been supposed.
Tho mihi winter possibly had something
to do with this and almost every alfalr
was well .attended. It would, however,
be unfair not to say that among the chief
sources of pleasure with tho young peo?
ple were the Wednesday Club, the
mandolin aud guitar clubs and tho danc?
ing schools. For the first time since its
organization has a season gone by with?
out a single german by the German Glut
and they have been 'much missed. Tho
germaus that were given were small
though pleasant and possibly as enjoya?

The criticism that appeared a few days
ago upon the cost of the Koanoke ger?
maus must, to those who know, appear
to have been written by some one ignor?
ant both as to these germans and the
workings cl the Academy of Music. The
last german cost, it is true, $1.50. Car
ri itres for an gvening cost each. It
was the custom with thu german club and
is now as far as possible, to hire a cer?
tain number of carriages, add the cost to
that of the german and divide the total
equally among the men present. When
this is not possible it is usual for our
men to hire a carriage, which makes two
trips, thus costing each man !?1 in addi?
tion to the cost of tin- german. In good
weather those ladies living near the hotel
never object to walking. It may be said
that Koanoke germans, as a rule, never
cost any one man over ?1 50 and that a
careful observance will find that of all
the young men here who take ladies to
the theatre constantly the men who at?
tend the germans are the most frequent.
Did the street cars run to all parts of the
city and at convenient hours they would
most certainly be utilized. They would
be far more comfortable than on theatre
nights when people are forced to hang on
as best they can. Desirable seats at tho
theatre when Sol Smith Russell was here
cost ?1.23 each. For Jefferson they will
cost >?2 each. It is a man's own fault if
a german costs him or more than $2.50
again. The frequency of our germans,
it is true, is something startling and may
have accounted for tho small number of
desirable attractions at the Academy of
