I FEEL IT MY DUTY TO TEH.
', ——
Run Down, Could Not Sleep,
Everything Worried Me.
My Head Ached, Had No Appe
tite, and I Could Not Work.
Dr. Greene's Nervura Cured Me and I
Feel Like a New Man,
Mr. Wellington Hynes, Elizabethtown,
N. V., says: " I feel it my duty to tell
how much good Dr. Greene's Nervura
blood and nerve remedy has done for me.
When I first began its use, I was so run
down that I could not sleep at night, and
everything worried me. I had no appe
tite, could not work, and the doctors told
me I must give up as there was no help
for me. My head ached all the time day
and night, and there was an all gone feel
ing in my stomach and I was always look
ing on the dark side of everything. A
friend recommended Dr. Greene's Nervura
blood and nerve remedy. I began to take
it and in less than three weeks I felt like
a new man. I can now do as much work
as is expected of a man of my age. I ad
' vise anyone who is tioubled, to take Dr.
•' Greene's Nervura. Don't go to a doctor,
' but get a bottle of Dr. Greene's Nervura,
it is cheaper than a doctor's bill and will
help you more than any other medicine,
it will do you good as it has done me." m
-What gives everybody confidence in Dr.
Greene's Nervura is the fact that it is a
physician's prescription, the discovery of
Dr. Greene, 35 West 14th St., New York
City, and this successful physician in
curing diseases can be consulted without
charge at any time, personally or by tetter.

t his home herd he was kept busy
ing callers,neighbors and friends
'egret his departure from the
unity,
inland for men in the West Vir
coal fields, and lack of work at

Sam Donald on Prosperity.
"Business is picking up all over Vir
ginia," said Mr. Sam Donald, of An
j gusta county, at Murphy's last night.
"I have recently had occasion to
travel over the State extensively,"
continued Mr. Donald, "and what I
saw and heard convinces me that
times are steadily growing better.
More work is doing, and consequently
more money is circulating. Every
body is beginning to feel the effects oi
better times.
"Take the city of Staunton. One oi
the merchants of that place told me;
the other day that his total sales dur
ing 1898 were 30 per cent, greater than
in 1897, and that his collections during
the month of December were $10,00(
in excess of his sales. Times are bet

days. There are signs of improve
ment everywhere. Everybody is ie
good spirits, and everybody is expect

Colored People Married.
On Monday, the 23rd ult., Sarah
Dawson and Scott Fielding, two very
respectable colored people of the Deer
field neighborhood, were married at the
residence of John W. Montgomery, at
Deerfield, the Rev. J. H H. Winfree,
of the Presbyferian church, officiating.
After the marriage was celebrated Mr.
and Mrs. Montgomery gave them a
delightful supper, to which they and a
number of their colored friends sat
down. They have for some years been
domestics in Mr. Montgomery's family
and are highly esteemed in the neigh
borhood. A number of their white
friends in the community were present
to witness the ceremony.

Items from Highland County.
This, Highland county, was very
much shocked this morning to hear
oyer the phone that Samuel Jones, of
Doe Hill, was dead. He died at three
o'clock this morning (Tuesday). He
was taken sick last Thursday and had
double pneumonia. He was the sec
ond son of Dr. 11. H. Jones, and about
18 years of age. Every thing was done
that medical skill could do to save 1 is
life and in addition to his father, tLere
were in attendance at his bedside.
Dr. J. 11. Tiimble, of Monterey, Dr.
Siron, of McDowell, and Dr. E. J.
Jones, of New Hampden. Dr. Arlie
Jones, of the University of Virginia,
(his brother) arrived at his bedside an
hour before he died. His sister, Miss
Bessie, who is at school at Salem, Va.,
has been wired to come to his burial
which will take place on Wednesday.
He was a member of the M. E. Church
South.
The spirit of improvement seems to
bft taking hold of Old Highland again.
We learn that the Sieg's will soon build
a large store-house in Monterey on the
Sullenberger Corner. It will be a three
story building, and besides the store
room it will have large ware-rooms,
and a room will be constructed to be
used as a bank. On the Crab-Bottom
side we learn that Mr. Jas. McNulty,
Mr. J. N. Stover, Mr. E. D. Swecker
and Mr. Mark Simmons will each
build new residences. Mr. S.C. Slaven,
Mr. Geo. Swecker and Mr. Jno. Mai
com will build new barns, and there
are several other parties in same
neighborhood, who are talking of
building new residences.
Mr. Otto Gum, of Meadow Dale, was
paralyzed last week. He has had two
strokes, but is still living and his physi
cian says he will get well unless he
has another stroke.
There is no stir yet in regard to
county offices I suppose the old officers
will all be candidates. The Highland
ers are a great people for holding on
to old officers although there is nearly
always a contest. Politics does not
figure much in the county officers. The
two parties are nearly equally divided.
There has been several land sales
in Crab Bottom recently the most im
portant of which the Simmons' broth
ers have purchased from Henry Sim
mons his one half interest in the Jno.
Sterrett land a tract of 245 acres, they
gave Dim $1,700 more than he gave for
his half, which is $3,400 more than the
same tract was sold to them for three
years ago under a deed of trust. Most
people think it is low enough, yet
these are those fine raising lands that
make export cattle in one season with
out grain. They seldom change hands.
