'You should thank heaven that you have nerves to warn you of approaching dangers. Thousands In the glorious springtime, who rise up each morning tired, weary and miserable, stand in need of Paine's Celery Comnound, the marvelous medicine that frees the body from acid blood and morbid waste material. Paine's Celery Compound at the same time strengthens the three great or gans, the stomach, the liver and kidneys. When this good work is accomplished the nerve fibers are made strong and vigorous and the whole system reinforced. A few bottles of Paine's Celery Compound used this month will save you suffering and anxiety later on. The results given by Paine's Celery Com pound are assuring and happy. Your reward will be a perfect and unhampered action of a clear and healthful brain nd nervous system, pure blood will course through the body, you will have sweet and refreshing sleep and permanent good health. Mrs. A. D. Manning of Hunter, Ark., says: "I have found Paine's Celery Compound for years to be a great blessing. I was in wretched health and could not get a meal of victuals without sit ting down and resting two or three times. While in this miserable condition, almost wishing for the monster. Death, to take me out of my trouble, my brother-in-law advised me to try Paine's Celery Compound, and bought me a bottle. I found im mediate relief and was soon well. Now I am 1ffty-eight years old, and can do as much Wort as almost any one, and more than a good many; yomg girls. I heartily recommend it to all suferers." Our Food Resources.

Virginia shbuld teffinr of dolng soi.aa act an act whieh, in. the very nature of thg, musatteid torenew the feeling ot nacerneas.* It might be asked why is it that this. gn esal feelng of friendliness would be any more disturbed by the proposed action of Virginia than by the action of variens northern states in ptang in the Capitol the statuftes of such leaders in the civil war as Kearney and others? Would It not be bet ter. In fact, for both sides to act on the sug gestion of Lee himself. made after the war, that we follow the example of the ancients. who sought to obliterate, as speedily as pos sible, all traces of their civil conflicts, while perpetuating in marble the memory of the heroes of their- foreign wars? But to do this we shoul4 have no monuments to civil war leaders, either northern or southern. The writer quoted hopes that Virginia will yet "select some other of her great men to represent her among the states in the na tional Capitol. There is already in the Statuary Hal', to represent her, a statue of Washington, originany voted in his honor by her general assembly in 178& Let us. see how his case comnpares With that of Lee. Virginia is aware that Lee first took a solemn oath as an army officer to support the Constitution, and afterward bore arms against the federal government, just as Washington. as an army officer under Braddock, doubtless took the-oath of al legiance to the king, and afterward took up arms against him. (And If It be urged that Washington had never received his train ing at a military school of the British gov ernment, I ask, if he had, would that have caused him to side with the Tories as against Virginia in her revolt?) Virginia knows that Lee was reluctant to join the movement for southern independence, just as Washington had long held back from ad= vocating Anerican Independence, explicitly deprecatingc the Idea even after he had taken command of the revolutionary armies in the field. Virginia knows that Lee laid himself open to the charge of stabbing his "mother, ti Uiilon," because he refused to Join with the invaders of the sacred soil of his own mother, Virginia, who had existed long before the Union was heard of, and with whose past name and fame that of his family, was inseparably linked-she knows that he did this, just as Washington had exposed himself to the charge of stab bing his psaedo-mother. England, by re fusing to join with the assailants of his mother, Virginia. There is this difference, however; that Lee sided with the older and more venerable of the two claimants to his allegiance (Virginia and the Union). whie Washington sided with the younger of the two (Virginia and the British crown), but each; sidi g ,rith his mother. Virginia, for separation fr6m the existing union. Virghlia kribWs all this. She inoWl too, that she can find no two among her many brilliant sons so pre-eminently deserving of this honor as these same Washington and Lee. who for her sake and In her de fense braved the hame of rebel and of traitor. One succeeded and the other tail ed; tht 'Is practicall9"the only difference between their cases. I have lived among the Virginians many years, and I con fidently predict that the hope of the gen tleman will never be realised that Virginia will choose a substitute fe her -proposed statue of Lee. If her offer of his effigy, made by her In this era of professed recon ciliation and good feeling, and In response to the express invitation of Congress to herself and the other states to place there. each, two statues of their own choice-if this offer of hers be refused then there will be left to represent her in the na tional statuary hail only the statue of Washington, voted, as I have stated, by her legislature before the present 'govern ment of the United States - was formed. And beside this figure will remain a vacant spot, from now to the utmost hour of the republic, because she will refuse to stultify herself by ollowing others to decide for her who among her many sons is best fitted to represent her In the national hail of fame a mute but eloquent witness forever to her undying devotion to the memory of the man too great to be appreciated by the present generation of partisans, and the only one great enough- to be placed there by her as the peEr cf Washington. - L.

Kr. Corbin Thompson. one of the milk dealers. said: , , "In the recent case in which It appear to have been prosecuted for not complying with the law I was not alone in defendlng the suit. The Milk Dealers' and Producers' Association unanimously voted to test the law and carry it to the highest possible court before submitting to the rule of the District Commissioners in the matter. and my case was made a test case for that purpose.
