autl yourself, and while tne news some
times lacks thut delicious llavor wbeu It
is freshly gathered?for instance I just
learned to-day that Henry George was
dead and that some one in the Klundike,
which 1 read here two weeks ago,bas jitat
found another washtub full of nuggets?
y?t I'm always glud to read the Roanoke
news; that so and so has a very line ad.
on a certalu page whereiu ho is ofFeriug
goods at retail much less than they cost
to manufacture, anil that Mr. somebody '
else has just retuued from the North
where be has by rare good luck purchased
New York city and the gcodness thereof,
(with the exception of Dr. Parkhurst who
is abroad) and expepts to have it on his
counters and offered of sale at much less
than it cost him, and that VanLear's
cold capsules continue to knock tlle
stalling out of colds and Paul Massies'
soap is a regular Roanoke dust shedder.
I promised to write you after 1 was

true that the whole State of Washington

many other t ities in Eastern Washington
show signs of great futures, especially
Spoknpe, but here t he iuterests are more
diversified. There's iron, whole mountains
of it, right.here close at hand. North of
here up the sound are the coal mines t hat
supply this west coast with coal. The
lumber mills within ten miles of Seat tle
on the sound can supply the whole world

There's tho fish industry. Washington
and Oregon put up most of the salmou
used and the>r canneries are located hero

the big operators live and do their bank?

mostiof the grain aud hay "of Eastern
Washington aud they r.iiso 50 bushels of
wheat to the acre over here as easy as
Virginia does 20.
Manufacturing of all kinds is spring

you can imagine what a* scene that cre?
ates along the wat er frout. It tloesa laud

WHY WOMEN SUFFER,
Women's weaknesses are t ho cause of
nioro sufferiua than nil other diseases
combined. And yet women may easily
avoid all these dislres-siii? ailments If
they will only bo wise. There is a way
to prevent them. Mrs. Isabel Green, one
or the lending ladies of Colchest er. Conn,
gives some valuable advice in these
words: "For three or four years I suffer?
ed witl 'backache aud bearing down pains
and various other ailments peculiar to
womankind and tried many kinds ot
medicine, but until I commenced the use
of Warner's safe cure, I never received
any permauent relief. As the result of
taking it, 1 now feel like a new woman
and have not had an ache or n pain lot
two years piSt. I cheerfully recommend
this great remedy to every wemau who
sutlers as I did."
Experience has proved that Warner's
safe cure is positively the best remedy
for put ting a stop to female weaknesses
of every kiud It is a remedy that no
woman can aiTord to be without and it is
a remedy that
EVERY WOMAN NEEDS.
A DREADED ENEMY.
Too many men are declining, losing
t>>eir energy, life aud manly enterprise
by reason of a subtle poison in the blood
which brings on that fatal malady knewn
as Bright's disease, its primary cause it
a disordered condition of the liver and
kidneys and there is only one way in
which it can be cleared out of the system.
Mr. E. J. Codd, president of the E. J.
Codd Co., of Baltimore, Md., spoke from
experience when he recently said: "Six
years ago I was badly affected by an at?
tack of Bright's disease. II had several
doctors in attendance for some tim<?, but
finally discontinued their services and
commenced taking Warner's safe cure.
After usingabjutsix bottles I was entire?
ly cured and restored to health."
These words are strong aud convincing.
Thuy prove beyond any doubt that War?
ner's safe cure is able to cure Bright's
tlisease, and every other form of liver and
kidney complaint. As a remedy it is un
equaled, it can always be relied uponTnnd

RACKED WITH PAIN,
Thousands of men and women suffer
agonizing pain from chronic rheumatism.
They will bo glad to know that there is a
remedy which cures this terrible com?

resident of Danbury, Coun., testifies to
this faet and says: "Bast spring I suffer

ing any benefit. Doctors afforded me

iUILDS THE HIGH
rISE IN TIME AND USE
Says Congress Should at Once Pass
New York, Nov. '22.?In a dispatch to
the llera.li'. from Washington Senator
Morgan, of Alabama, says of the attitude
of Cougress on the Cuban question:
"The duty of Congress is plaiu enough,
and I hope the House will unite with the
Senate iu enacting tho joint resolution
passed by the Senate at tho extra session
of 1807, declaring that a state of public
war exists in Cuba. That declaration is
all that is needed to secure to the people
of the United States aud to the king of
Spain and the republic of Cuba the rights
of war as they are delineil by the laws of
"The right of the Unit?d States to rec?
ognize tho fact that publlc'war exists in
Cuba caunot lie deuied, unless we are
under some ban of insensibility to an
awful truth at which the whole world is
appalled, both on accouut of its magni?
tude and duration, and is shocked and
offended at its inhuman atrocities.
"Unless some pressure has come upon
us that paralyzes the moral sense of the
government, so that it is unconscious of
the awful truth that has revealed to all
the rest of the we rid the horrors of the
war in Cuba, we are bound in moral
honesty to declare that war exists there
and that the Cuban government, which
has every attribute of a de faeto govern?
ment for conduct*ug open warfare, ami
every attribute, also, ol a regular civil
government, at least for the purpose of
conducting war. 1 believe the House
will pass tin* Senate joint, resolution,
which goes to that extent only and uo
"If there is any reason why the House
should defeat the Senate resolution, I
fail to see it. Without such a declara?
tion wo would lie derelict in national
duty to Spain if we made any attempt to
iuterfere in Cuban affairs, either through
diplomacy or force. The reason is very
plain. It is tltat, while we admit that
Spain ami the Cubans are at peace and
that Spain is legitimately engaged in tho
suppression of one insurrectionary fac?
tion by lawful means, we cannot decently
interpose our advice or our power to cou
trcl or regulate her conduct, the contro?
versy being entirely domestic. Stich an
admisison by the United States in the face
of the facts is the monumental falsehood
of all history. It has encouraged and
supported a reign of terror id Cuba that
can only be described as 'Weylerism,' and
has drawn into its vortex tunny American
citizens who are lawfully in Cuba under
our tteaties, and are engaged iu legiti?
mate and peaceful pursuits."

GEN. ORDWAY DEAD.
The End Saitl to Rave lleen Hastened by
His Daughter's Downfall.
New York, Nov. 22.?Con. Albert Onl
way, of Washington, D. C, died at 7:15
o'clock last night at the Hoffman House,
in ttiis city, aged 5-1 years. When death
came the General's wife, his sister. Miss
Emu a Ordway, Dr. Pease, the attending
physician, and Lieutenant Very, a close
friend ami business associate, were at his
bedside. General Ordway and his wife
returned from Europe last Wednesday.
They engaged rooms at tho Hoffman
House. Next day the General was taken
sick, and be continued to grow weaker
and weaker until 7:15 o'clock this even?
ing, when he passed away.
The General's death was doubtless has?
tened by the sad and recent events in
connection with Iiis wayward daughter,
Bettina Girard, the actress. The latter,
a complete wreck, was a day or two ago
transferred to a private sanitarium from
Owing to the pleading of his wife, who
had become reconciled to her daughter,
General Ordway finally consented to the
return of the prodigal, and a reunion of
the family in Washington was arrange'1.
General Ordway's death is attributed
by the attending physician to 'jaundice
and deurisy, which developed from a
cohl contracted in Paris.
