NOW IN FULL SWING. lamestown Ter-Centennlai Exposition i Colonial City — Army and Navy Display. Never before has there been held an exposition with so many attractive features as the Jamestown Ter-Cen tennial, now in full swing on Hamp ton Roads. The Ter-Centennial is now complete in all of its details and presents to tbe visitor a most attrac tive display. The immense exhibit palaces, state and government build ings, all of a permanent or semi-per manent construction, set off with abundant shade trees and foliage, give to the Exposition an appearance dis tinct from all of its predecessors. Within an hour's ride by either boat or train are such historic places as Yorktown, where Cornwallis surrend ered to tbe Continental army, and Jamestown Island, tbe "Cradle of America." Just across the waters of Hampton Roads are located Old Point Comfort and Fort Monroe, the strong est and most important artillery sta tion on tbe Atlantic coast, whose grim walls and winding moat make it one of tbe most picturesque spots in tbe country, These and many other places of historic interest give an appropriate setting to the Jamestown Exposition, which commemorates the three hun dredth anniversary of tbe first per manent English speaking settlement in America. Owing to tbe fact that the James town Ter-Centennial is the first cele bration ever held on deep water in this country, there has been going on al most continually a grand naval spec tacle of a kind such as America has never seen before. The entire North Atlantic fleet, under the command of Rear Admiral Evans, squadron by squadron, will rendezvous in Hamp ton Roads from time to time, giving the visitor to tbe exposition ample op portunity to see the strongest fleet of battleships in the world. There will be at all times during the summer at least six men of war in tbe roads. The army, as well as tbe nayy, is well represented at tbe Exposition, and dally parades by regiments of United States troops are to be seen on Lee's j Parade, one of tbe largest and best equipped drill plains in tbe country. Stationed at the exposition grounds at present are the entire Twenty-third regiment of United States cavalry and D battery of the Third field artillery Several regiments of the national guard of various States, besides nu merous military and semi military or ganizations, are encamped at the ex position from time to time. Each of these military organizations brings its own band, which, together with tbe exposition orchestras and bands, gives a continuous and varied musical pro gram. The government exhibits, housed in four handsome structures on the water front, comprise one of the most complete and comprehensive displays of the work of the various departments of tbe government ever assembled. Tbe individual states have also come forward at this exposition with their co-operation, and twenty of tbem have erected buildings to represent tbem, while practically every state is repre sented iv exhibits, historical, educa tional, or industrial. These state buildings are located on Willongbby Boulevard, a grand avenue paralleling the water front, and from tbe broad pLzza of the state structures tbe visitor may rest and view tbe magnifi cent and historic harbor where the fleets of tbe world might rest at an chor. In tbe immediate front appear tbe great white men of war of our own and ofttimes a foreign nation's and yachts, sloops, schooners and mer chant vessels of every kind. Beyond are the frowning walls of Fort Monroe and the beautiful social retreat of tbe coast, Old Point Comfort. To the left, and further up the roads, toward where tbe James mingles its waters with the salt tide of the sea, may be seen the city of .Newport News, witb tbe greatest shipyards in the world. To the right appears the broadening channel from roads to bay and from bay to broad and mighty Atlantic out between capes Charles and Henry. Tbe illumination at night is a scene in itself worthy of a journey tbere to witness, and, witb all tbe outlines of the buildings aglow, the paths of the Canoe Trail and Lover's Lane twink ing with tbe myriads of little lights, the War Path a blaze of electricity, the Biowerful searchlights playing avens with their mysterious es and fifty miles of shore lines | with the lights of a half dozen ,nd nestling towns, what spec tacle more beautiful could be imagin- On tbe amusement section of tbe ex position, called the Warpath, there is every amusement and diversion, I where the visitor, after a long day of j sight seeing can relax and let himself drift with the pleasure seekers from one amusement to another, where tbe | lights ever twinkle and the noise of oriental music floats out on tbe air.

Mr. Jones attended theUUn- t versity of Virginia and has frequently t visited Staunton and has made friends here. The intended wedding was kept , so secret, that when tbe announcement , of its consummation reached here it created quite a little sensation among ( the bride's host of friends iv this city. , Tuesday tbe young couple arrived . here and have since been visiting at , the Baker home. Today they will leave for a bridal tour, which includes a visit to Jamestown Exposition aud . other points east, after which they will take up their residence in Greensboro, Ala Compulsory Education. Last Saturday tbe Augusta County School board was in session at tbe Courthouse in tbe office of Superin tendent Peale, a full attendance being present. After some routine work a i resolution was offered by Mr. John W. i Todd and seconded by Mr. Samuel I Farrer, asking our Senator aud repre sentatives in the next General Assem I bly to support a bill authorizing com - i pulsory education in those cities I and counties throughout tbe State, whose school boards desire it. Tbe s resolution was debated at some length > aud finally adopted by a unanimous f vote. 9 The new State constitution em - powers tbe legislature to enact a com , pulsorv educational law (with certain c restriction) giving to each school board ? throughout the State the option of si adopting it. Children under or over is (certain ages are exempt and the local n school boards at their discretion may exempt others where the circum stances seem to warrant it. Such a law at the option of the b iards would be very advantageous in many ways, i giving discretionary powers where , and when to apply the law, in Lhe f localities needing It or debarring ie f I operatiou in places where it is not de i sired. The resolution as adopieci s| will be placed in tbe hands of oui f State representatives at the piopei I time.

My own experience and that of many friends who have been benefited by its use recommend it to all persons suffering from that complaint." Says Peruna Saved His Life. "Peruna has cured me of catarrh. I can work all day, eat hearty, sleep well, and my digestion Is all right. I was not able to do a day's work last year. I candidly feel that using your medicine was the means of saving my life. I find it is just what it is recom mended to be, and I speak in highest praise of Peruna. I shall recommend it to all my friends."—Alvis A. Nelson, Virgilina, Va. When any one has catarrh of the head or throat they know it. Bnuffing, sneez ing, coughing, spitting, gagging, chok ing—these are some of the symptoms. When any one has catarrh of the bron chial tubes they are not quite so apt to recognize their trouble as catarrh, al though there are a great many people who begin to appreciate the fact that ca tarrh of the bronchial tubes is sure to create a cough. Catarrh produces symptoms according to the place in the body where the ca tarrh is located. Catarrh deranges the function cf any organ.

The most eminent medical scientists are unanimous in tbe conclusion that ' the generally accepted limitation of 1 i human life is many years below the ■ attainment possible witb the advanced 1 knowledge of which the* race is now ' possessed. The critical period, that , determines its duration; seems to be c between 50 and 80; the proper care of a tbe body during this decade c innot s be too strongly urged; carelessness then i being fatal to longevity. Nature's beet d h" ;>er after 50 is E'ee-tric Bitters, the r scientific tonic medicine that revital ir izes every organ of the body. Huaran If in the lungs it is apt to set np con sumption. If located in the kidneys or bladder it produces urinary disorders. If in the bowels it deranges the bowels. Catarrh medicine, in order to be effec tive, should be an internal remedy, and not a local application. Peruna has maintained its reputation for many years as an internal catarrh remedy. It operates throughout the whole system. It benefits 3atarrh of the pelvic organs the same as catarrh of the head or throat. The Family Relies on Peruna. A. Howitt Nickerson, Capt.. U. S. Army, Adjutant General on General McCook's staff, writes from the Census Building, Washington, D.
