It is saiel that nlthoughtheMnnn
liejuor bill has proved a beneficial
factor in many parts of Virginia
in reducing the number of saleione,
there exists Peverill delects in the
bill whereby the evasion of the
statute is made easy. The chief
ground for complaint on the pnrt
of the temperance people is the
clauae in the bill permitting the
granting of licenses to social clubs
having a membership of three or
more. These clubs are repotted
to be springing up all over the
State mid so serious is the situa?
tion that in all probability the
Legislature will be called on to
provide a remedy.
Dr. George IL Moore of Bieh
niotid, superintendent of the Vir?
ginia Anti-Saloon League, says
that lie is in receipt of letters from
various parts of the State showing
a widespread spirit of dissatisfac?
tion exists with reference to this
phase of the law. In some coun?
ties the fight for legislative candi?
dates lave been made with ref?
erence to the Mann bill,notably in
Albemarle where the liquor ele?

cause the defeat of Mr. XV, II.

of the Mann bill. Ile was nomi?

The Richmond Times-Dispatch
says "that Canalla as well as the
United States is troubled by the
indifference of voters, and is try?
ing to devise a way to bring them
to the polls."
Voting is a privilege, and there?
fore compulsory voting is a con?
tradiction. To undertake to com?
pel a man to vote is very much
:ike compelling him to walk.
It is certain that something
ini^ht te be done fri the United
States to stimulate the indifferent
voter to action. The primary held
in Kockbridge last week showed
thal lhere were ma ny indifferent

S<> exacting are the demands of
modern business or professional
life, and so unhygienic are its con?
ditions, that perfect health for
those engaged in it is practically
impossible. I'liysieiai health is a
matter of great importance, but
mental health is even more impor?
tant. If the stress of modern life
tends to increase the number of
insane, it must be confessed that
we are pitying a dear price for
progress. Virginia bas four hos?
pitals for the insane. All of them
are full to overflowing, and many
applicants have to be turned away.
In this respect tbs condition of
Virginia is not worse than tha; of
other States nf the Union, or of
the countries of tbe Old World.
The great body of Democrats of
Virginia arc determined that the
practices which obtained under
the old Underwmd Constitution
shall not be oontinuedt that the
negro has been eliminated from the
p ilities of thc State. The primary
plan for nominating candidates,
that bas been put in force by the
Democratic party of the State, has
cone t i stay. The men who car
rind tn a successful conclusion the
movement for a new Constitution
do not intend tn lose the fruits of
their victory by yielding to the
attempted leadership of those who
were satisfied with nhl conditions,
and are now trying to perpetuate
those conditions.

Virginia Fruit for St. Lou in Kx
Mr. George E. Murrell, state
Commissioner for the World's Fair
at St. Louis, has issued the follow
ing circular letter which is of in?
terest to fruit growers:
Ab previously brought to your
notice, upon the nctive co-opera?
tion of the fruit growers ol" the
State must elepend the ouecess or
failure, to a large extent, ol' our
fruit exhibit at the World's Fair,
so I hope each individual grower
will do all that he can to make
this exhibit a success. It will be
necessary to obtain at least fifty
barrels of apples from each of the
leading apple counties of the State
to enable a continuous exhibit to
be made in a creditable manner
during the entire perioel of thc
exposition, and if each grower
will contribute a barrel or so of
apples, each one will get equal in?
dividual advertisement and tlie
burden will not bear heavily upon
Apples should becaref illly picked
with the stem left od, must be free
from defacement by worms, black
ends, smut, scab, cloud or other
skin diseases, should be of normal
shape and well colored. Great care
should be exercised in handling to
prevent bruising, and to this end
apples, pears, etc., should be
picked direct from the tree and
each individual apple wrapped in
paper, for which purpose news?
paper or ordinary wrapping paper
will answer. Pnok in boxes or
barrels whichever may be most
convenient, but in any case usc
plenty of packing and wrapping
material, as a lees quantity well
careel for is more desireel than a
large quantity in bud condition.
Size must be secondary to the per?
fect condition of the fruit, as it
matters not how large if tile
specimen has black end, is scabby
or bruised, it cannot be exhibi?

One eloes not have to go far to
find the reason for tbis phenomenal
pressure upon our higher educa?

an evidence that the general pros?
perity has enabled more parents to
feel justified in sending their hoys

an evidence that both parents and
students have come to realize that
the successful men and women in
