BOARD OF TRADE.
This Organization Doing Active Work in
the City's Behalf.
The hoard of trade, of this city, of
which W. E. Deaton is president, h'S
awakened in earnest ni.d have gone to
work with a will towards bettering the
ooditlon of Hoanoke.
It will he remembered trat a few days
ago they began to actively agitate too
matter of securing for Hoanoke the pro?
posed armor plate factory .bo erected
by the lio\eminent.
They also realize that Roanoko's loca?
tion is unsurpassed as a wholesale mar
ket, and to that end have irone to work
and secured one fare rates to this city for
the purpose of drawing trade. Thoy have
succeeded well, as a conference with the
Norfolk and Western railway otiicials
was held with thia end in view, and yes?
terday naming at a meeting of the
board, Mr. W. E. Deaton, the president,
announced that the railway people had
agreed to place on sale at all points east
of Bristol, Norton anil Bluefleld, north of
Winston-Salem and south of Sheuandoah
round trip tickets to Hoanoke at 0110
first-class fare on the 1st, 2d, Hd. 4th,
11th. 12tn and 13th of September, good
for fifteen days from date of sale. This
rate Is made to merchants along the lines
and designated and will a (lord them a
spendid opportunity of \isiting Hoanoke
to make their purchases.
Inasmuch as trio onard has succeeded
so admirably in this mat ter, it is eai
nestly hoped that the merchants and bus?
iness men in general will by circulars and
other advertisements promptly advise
their correspondents and patrons "f this
arrangement and thereby render great
service to the city and its trade. In ad?
dition to the ntrangement with the rail?
way company the board has arranged
with the Ponce <te I.eon, ;Ilotel Hoanoke
and the St. .lames for sp?cinl reduced
rates to merchan's visiting our city dur?
ing the time herein specified.
Several merchants have agreed to no?
tify their friends of this arrangemeut,
and it Is hoped that others will see the
Importance of doing likewise with spe?
By this means it is believed that Hoan?
oke can largely increase its wholesale
business, and all'ord the merchants along
the routes designated a f ne opportunity
of coming here to purchase goods. Hoan?
oke is a good wholesale market, ?nd there
are probably many merchants not hereto?
fore dealers in this city, who will by
meaus of the low rates of the rallwav and
hotels become auiuai&ted with the nu?
merous advantages ofTered them here,and
become regular patrons of the city's

Do You Use It?
It's the best thing for the
hair under all circumstances.
Just as no man by taking
thought can add an inch to
his stature, so no preparation
can make hair. The utmost
that can he done is to pro?
mote conditions favorable to
growth. This is done by
Ayer's Hair Vigor. It re?
moves dandruff, cleanses the
scalp, nourishes the soil in
which the hair grows, and,
just as a desert will blossom
under rain, so bald heads grow
hair, when the roots are nour?
ished. But the roots must be
there. If you wish your hair
to retain its normal color, or
if you wish to restore the lost
tint of gray or faded hair use
