that the very best medicine for restoring

is purely vegetable, acts by giving tone

gently stimulates the liver and Kidneys
and aids these ortrnns in' throwing oil"

INSURANCE . . .

The vicious practice of throwing glass
in the publ'c streets of the city is diffi?
cult of remedy, but the action taken last
week by Judge Mills In the police court
of Washington in the case .of an ac?
knowledger' offender ^should uo a long
way toward discouraging the bottle
throwers in that city, and be a practical
hint to the mayor and officials of Roan?
oke. A fine of $21), with the^nlternative
of spending sixty days in jail, was im?
posed on tho Washington glass thrower
and it was none too severe. Of all the
refuse cast into the streets irlass is tho
most dangerous. It punctures bicycle
tires anil thus causes pecuniary loss to
scores and hundreds. It cuts the feat of
horses and often disables them for life.
It cuts also the feet of little children,
many of whom run bare fool, In the sum?
mer. It is unjustified, for there is ample
room to throw this refuse in out of the
way places, and even if there is no place
at hand there is no possible excuse for
the depositing of izlass In the streets. It
is plain that t he offenders are often ac?
tuated by unworthy motives. Iu many
cases they seek deliberately to cause
trouble for the bicycle riders. Some of
them imagine that they are justified in
thus "getting even" with the entire class
of wheel users hecavse of some) grievance
caused by a collision with an Individual
rider. The maximum penalty should be
enforced in every case that is proved. It
may be difficult to fasten guilt upon the
right person, but if the police were in?
spired to a little moie vigilance in inves?
tigating the source of the glass that is
strewn over the streets each day a few
cases might readily be made and the uoi
sauce would soon be abated. The matter
appeals to parents and horse owners an
well as to bicyclers and is well worth
extra efforts on tho part of all.
