Is there anything
Jnore beautiful, more completely pleasing
than a womanly woman ? Snch a woman
is even tempered, intelligent, strong and
healtky. Healtli really tells the whole
story. Health meaas strong nerves and
strong body, and they go far toward
bringing good looks and amiability.
A woman worn and wearied by the
dragging weaknesses peculiar to her sex,
cannot be expected to "find zest in any
duty or amusement. Life is all one dead
monotonous gloom to her. On her face
is written the story of weakness and pain.
The wholesomencss of health is lacking.
The cheeks lack fulhicss, the eyes lack
?parkle, the hair lacks luster.
Doctors have learned to locate nines
tenths of womanly sickness in the organs
that ought above afl others to be strong
Sensitive women shudder at the
thought of consulting a physician on
such matters. A.natural feeling of mod?
esty makes thenvdread the examination,
and subsequent stereotyped treatment by
"local applications" on which most

WHAT IT MEANS.
S. W. JAMISON,
THE TRUTH HURTS.
City Tax Collector Coon's Method
- of Defense.
Yesterday afternoon as M. H. Claytor,
editor of The Times, was in the act of
going iuto the courthouse, ho was accost?
ed by City ^ax Collector Cood, who de?
manded to know if he (Mr. Claytor) was
the author of a certain editorial wbicli
appeared in The Times of Sunday, which
he (Coou) called a "scurrilous article "
Mr. Claytor at once Informed him that
he was responsible for the article iu ques?
tion, whereupon Mr. Coon denounced it
as "a tissue of lies." At this Mr. Cay
tor struck him a blow in the face, when
City Sergeant TilletJt caught the irate
editor. Collector Coon seeing that his
assailant was being held, he at once
struck Mr. C ay tor several blows., one of
whirli completely smashed his hat and
cut a considerable igash in the side of his
head. Officer Mnok Morris, who saw the
occurrence, stated that Coon he hi some?
thing like a weight in his hand while
striking Mr. Claytor, who was still held
by Sergeant TtUett. The latter upon see?
ing what Coon's intentions were turned
Claytor loose, when the fighting tax col?
lector ivns caught by Deputy Sergeant
Boswell. The combatants were theu sep?
arated, neither being much the worse for
the encounter, except the .slight scalp
wound "received by Mr. Claytor which
was evidently made with some kiud of a
sharp or heavy instrument.
It is alleged that both men drew their
guns and a serious sffair was probably
a verteil only by the timely interference of
For the benefit of the readers of The
Times who did not see the article over
which Mr. Coon ''cntue sc greatly In
censed.it. is'here reproduced as follows:
"The bright young man who holds the
office of tax collector for the city con?
cluded a few months ago that he wmld
teach the newspapers of Roanoko a trick
or two and incidentally put a good roirnd
pile of dollars in his pocKets. When the
time arrived for him to print the delin?
quent tax list be secured b'ds from the
evening and morning papers and then
coolly proceeded to have the list printed
in an alleged journal entitled the Enlight?
ened Age at about the bare cost of the
actual labor performed, and cheerfully
put the difference between the cost of
publishing the list and printing it in his
inside pocket, and gtiiy paraded the
streets and talked about the lesson he
had taught the newspapers of ' Roanoke.
He announced that the best lawyers in
Ronnoke had advised him that he was
'all right' and for a while ho poked him?
self In the ribs and wore a smile it bat in?
dicated that he was tickling himself all
over. The healthful condition ol" his prl
vnte exchequer, the result of his brilliant
coup, together with the pleasant reflec?
tion that he had administered a distress?
ing dose'to the newspapers, made him
eujoy life to its full. The young mnn did
not stop to consider the interests of the
unfortunate delinquents, as the law
plainly directs him to do; but, dir/zded by
the dollars saved to h's pocket and being
ignorant of the difference between the
meaning of the words 'publish' and
'print,'.he had tlmlist"'printed' in the hot
month of August. The two newspnpers
of Roauoke, after recovering from the
stunning surprise administered by the
dashing genius, concluded to make com?
mon cause and endeavor to mill them?
selves out "of the.wiltlerness. They em?
ployed a lawyer. * Result: The city attor
uey last week advised th*? young man
that he had better have the tnx list 'pub?
lished,' and the same was puhlisned in
the evening paper of Friday. The City
Council delivers to the tax collector a
fund amounting to about $-11)0 to cover t he
cost of publishing. If lie can have the
list published lor less the difference goes
iuto his pocket. His brilliant scheme to
prrut the list iu an alleged sheet that has
never been seen by one taxpayer in a
thousand in Roanoke was a dashing one,
but it (lashed in the wrong direction."
The above article was true iu every de?
tail, save the statement that the "City
Council delivers to the tax collector a
fund amounting to about $400 to cover
oos*. of publishing." This fund is not
turned over to him in actual dollars, but
the City Council in preparing the coro
oensation of the city tax collectOi w"sely
looks after the detail expenses connected
with the office and so provides that the
commission paid this ollicer shall be sulli
cient to meet all legitimnto expenses and
yet leave h<m a goodly sum to mini but so
bin for his time and trouble. 'It is gene?
rally known unionu the officials that the
publishing of the delinquent, list has
always cost io tho noighorhood of $400.
Since tho matter is bein? agitated the
peoDle of Ptoanoke who nro interested in
tho sale of the delinquent property should
kDOw that Collector Coon Is again violat?
ing the law and is making the most com?
plete bungle of the business ever known.
In the first place he "printed" the list in
a sheet that had not been issued for two
months prior to tho number containing
the tax list. This he "piintea" one
time. Inquiry nt the office of the Even?
ing World yesterday demonstrated the
fact that "This Bright Young Mnn" has
contracted with them for the publication
of the list but once. Now for the bene?
fit of the members of the City Council
and others interested we print a very in?
teresting cectiou of the tax, law, which is
"Within twenty days after receiving
such lists the collector shall mane out
copies thereof, one of which he shall post
at the front door of the courthouse nnd
market house, and o?e he shall cause to
be published onco a week for four weeks
in at least one cf the newspapers printed in
this <jity or supplement thereof. To each
copy be sLall subjoin a notice that the
real estate mentioned therein,or so much
thereof as shall bo sufficient t o satisfy tho
taxes on the same, will be sold at public
auction in front of the courthouse be?
tween tho hours of 10 in the morning and
four in the nfteruoon of the day designa?
ted in said notice, unless said taxes shall
be previously paid."
The above is section 18, of an ordinance
to define the Out ies of t ho collector of city
taxes passed under the new charter in
The sale as published sn the World will
take place early in December and as the
matter now stands it would be a matter
of impossibility to publish tho list four
consecutive weeks prior to the ''ay adver?
tised for the sale to take place. Is this
the k'nd of stuff one of our important
city officials is made of? Why doesn't he
publish the list four titr.es as required by
law? It may be that he is still after
saving a small speck of that $1C0, over
which he became so fearfully enraged.
Would a delinquent tax sale ntand which
was illegally advertised?

Mr. S. A. Lee and Miss Alberta L.eo,his
niece,^begau at the Academy las', night
their aeries of a week's exhibition of hyp?
notism. The'house was packed from par?
quet to gallery and all witnessed a most
wondertul display of the powers of these
professional h> pnotists. After a short
introductory lecture 1 y Mr. Lee on'hyp
notism, its origin and scope, volunteers
from the audience were called for, quite
a number respoutllug. There were on
the stage some teu persons, till of whom
readily yielded to his influence and at bis
suggestion were made to perform some
remarkable and in some instances 'ludi?
crous feats. It is to bo regrettetl, perhaps,
that more persons better known to the
??(immunity did not present tin mselves as
subjects; of the geuuineness, however, of
his powers there can be no doubt. Ono
of bis feats was to put a slenderly built
young mau in a cataleptic condition,^and
then having placed him on two chairs.
80 that bis weight was sustained onty by
his head and heels, to render his body so
rigid that four men averaging in
weight 200 pounds each sat upon the
trunk and legs, without the subject
yielding an inch to the pres.aue. At the
con-luslon of the performance one ^f the
members of the company was thrown
into a cataleptic trance, and ordered to
sleep without food or drink for forty
eight hours. Ho was afterward removed
to the show window of Johnson Si John?
son's drug store, where a conim'ttee will
watch bini (Ibv and night to attest the
genuineness of the sleep.
