Short Health Talks—the Baby's
Bottle.
The summer months are by far the
most trying of the year upon babies and
young children, for during these
months thousands of children contract
bowel complaints, and die with amaz
ing rapidity,in spite of the efforts of the
doctors.
ft is very noticeable Ihat infants fed
from bottles are much more liable to
contract summer diseases than breast
fed babies. Indeed, the mother's milk,
if the mother is healthy and takes care
of herself, is the very best food that can
be given a young baby.
The dangers from the nursing bottle
can never be completely removed, but
any sensible mother can greatly reduce
them by taking proper care of the
baby's bottle. No time that the moth
er spends on her child will bring better
returns than that she spends in keep
ing the baby's bottle clean and sanita
ry-
Much depends on the bottle and the
nipple. A round bottle, with a round
ed bottom, is preferable to any other
form, and is much more easily cleaned,
The nipple should be simple and at
tached directly to the mouth of the bot
tle. The nursing-tubes, in vogue in
some quarters, can not be too much
condemned. They can never be kept
clean, and they may form the lurking
place for the germs that may kill the
baby.
Before filling the bottle with milk,
rinse it thoroughly with soapsuds and
then rinse in clean water. Then place
it for ten minutes in boiling water, af
ter which it is ready for use as soon as
it cools. The nipple should be placed
in a solution of boric acid, prepared by
dissolving a teaspoonful of boric acid
in a pint of water, and should be wash
ed before it is used.
As soon as the baby has finished with
the bottle, wash it out and then place
it in a solution of boric acid similar to
that used for cleaning the nipple. Then
rinse it thoroughly, as directed above.
It is best to have a number of bottles,
so that one is not used too frequently.
If the bottle is not given to the baby
immediately after it is filled, keep it in
a cool place, away from the flies.
Staunton Military Academy.
The closing exercises of the Staunton
Military Academy took place last night
at the Beverly Theatre before an au
dience that filled the building. Sun
day the baccalaureate sermon was
preached at the Baptist church, and for
several days field drills and other in
teresting events took place at the school.
The session just closed has been one of
the most prosperous in the history of
the school, and Prof. Kable and his able
assistannts are to be congratulated.
Local Option Election.
It has been decided to hold a local
option election here at some date in
1 July. Yesterday the petitions gotten
up by the drys were being circulated.
1 This action was decided on by a meet
; ing held at the Y. M. C. A. on Tues
day night.
SFNATOR RAYNER
RIDICULES ALL.
Sarcastic References to Republicans
in the Senate.
Washington, June I.—Characteriz
ing the tariff policy of the Republican
party as a "citadel of protection,"
Senator Rayner of Maryland, yester
day delivered a notable speech in which
he indulged in many humorous refer
ences to Senators who have taken a
prominent part in the discussion on
the liending bill.
CREATES MI'C'H AMI'SKMKXT.
Much amusement was created by his
sarcastic, but good natured, character
izations of the parts performed by these
Senators, either in attacking and at
tempting to destroy, or in defending
the citadel of protection from the many
sallies made upon it.
"The other day," he said, "the Sena
tor from Rhode Island (Mr. Aldrich.)
w hen a great speech had been deliver
ed attacking the rates of duty in the
woolen and cotton schedules, remark
ed that to change these schedules
would destroy the very citadel of pro
! tection.
"1 want to look inside of this citadel
now for a moment and to see what
things are going on from day to day
within. Never in my experience was
a citadel in such a stale of tumult and
commotion. The Senator from Rhode
Island is on the upper lloor, and with
him are his warriors. The din and
clatter are on the Hoors beneath. 1
was gazing at the classic features of
senior Senator from Massachusetts
(Mr. Lodge) the other day, when there
was the usual uproar in the citadel.
The sturdy recruit from Kansas (Mr.
Bristow) was hammering away at the
lead schedule and it seemed to disturb
the tranquility and repose of the Sena
tor from Massachusetts. He appeared
to be almost upon the point of prostra
tion from collapse when the senior
Senator from New Hampshire (Mr.
Gallinger) who is the surgeon of the
post, and is always ready with his rem
edies and nostrums, arose to adminis
ter a stimulant to the Senator from
Massachusetts, who quickly revived
under its exhilirating effect.
MR. ALDRICH WORRIEU.
"1 observed upon another day, when ,
everything seemed serene upon the up- ,
per lloor that suddenly the nerves of (
the senior Senator from Rhode Island j
became distracted when the sturdy old (
revolter, the senior Senator from Mm- |
nesota (Mr. Nelson), who has admit- (
ted that the blood of Scandinavian pi- .
rates is in his veins, and who is upon j
the ground floor, commenced to scuttle (
the citadel, if I may use that word in
connection with a citadel, by driving
with his sledge hammer blows large
holes into the bottom of the structure.
When the muster roll was called, how
ever, and the vote was taken the dam
' <
age was repaired and the Senator from ,
Rhode Island upon the upper floor re
sumed his ancient smile." !
Referring to Senator Crawford as a
"volunteer from South Dakota," as
having been engaged in dismantling
the citadel by tearing away the iron
girders, he declared that the Senators
i
from Michigan had assured the Sena
tor from Rhode Island that if he would
keep up his courage they would guar
antee that the iron mines of their State
would furnish sufficient raw material
to underpin the structure for the next
six thousand years, and, he addetl, on
this lloor a compromise was struck and '
fifteen hundred years was determined
upon as the time limit which all the
ores from all the world should be ex
cluded from our shores.
"Then there arose the great insurgent
from Wisconsin (Mr. LaFollelte) as
mild a mannered man as ever cut a
throat or scuttled a ship," continued
Mr. Raynor. "He is also in the citadel.
He is underneath the structure all
alone, plotting by day and dreaming
by night how to undermine its founda
tions, so that the entire citadel would
tremble from its turret to its base. He
arose to make some interesting sugges
tion in his usual modest and persua
sive way."
HAD RRFERENCE TO ROOT.
Mr. Rayner al this point introdued
"the great Secretary of State" (Mr.
Root) who, he said, seems always fig
uring and writing.
"Now it must be understood," he
went on, "that the Senator from New-
York is not within the citadel. He has
a little citadel of his own, and between
his citadel and the main stronghold
upon the upper floor of which his cli
ent, the Senator from Rhode Island, is
located, there is a wireless system of
telegraphy, and whenever the Senator
from Rhode Island is in imminent dan
ger and peril there comes a hierogly
phic message from the Senator from
New York—'Hold the fort for 1 am
coming.' In this instance there came
upon the waves a message that startled
and electrified the Senate."
He then referred to this wireless mes
sage as having been an assurance lo
the Senator from Rhode Island that
the Senate was laboring under a delu
sion by holding him responsible for the
bill, and the Senator from New York
proved an alibi for the Senator from
, Rhode Island.
Describing a "joyous smile, which
suit used not only on the genial coun
tenance of the Senator from Rhode Is
land, but on the countenance of all his
relatives and kindren upon the Com
mittee on Finance," he declared that
the Senator from California (Mr. Flint)
especially rejoiced because under this
acquittal the Senator from Rhode Is
land was only responsible, among all
the duties affecting California, for that
which taxes imported lemons at the
. rate of a quarter of a cent.
He referred to the brilliant senior
I Senator from Indiana (Mr. Beveridge)
• also being engaged constantly in figur
. ing and writing, and he could not make
out what it was all about.
f "I do not know whether he is in the
i citedal trying to get out or whether he
. is outside of the citedal trying to get
in," he continued. "He spoke of the
action of this Senator as being a come
dy or tragidy. Continuing in this same
I spirit he referred to the Senator from
i Utah (Mr. Smoot) as the chaplain of
i the garrison holding daily his morning,
. midday and afternoon revivals. .
SMOOT A SPIRITUAL ADVISER. f
"He is not only the chaplain of the
I garrison," he said, "but he is the] sptr
itual adviser and comforter of the Sen
ator from Rhode Island, and this is
perfectly right and proper, because the
Senator from Rhode Island, in his mo
ments of remorse and penitence for the
work that he is engaged in, is entitled
to all the assuaging consolation that
religion can afford him."
The moral of this narative, said Mr.
Rayner, was pointed by the Senator
from Nevada, who had suggested to
those who are playing around the
breastworks that they should form a
combination with those who are inside
the citadel and thus by union of forces
destroy the edifice.
Distressing Accident.
Mr. John Egeton White, a traveling
salesman for the Michie Grocery Co. of
Charlottesville, and a son of Mr. John
M. White, of Ivy, fell from a window
at the Virginia Hotel Tuesday morning
and was instantly killed. Mr. White
registered at the hotel in the evening
and retired about 11 o'clock, having a
call for the 3:15 a. in. Chesapeake and
Ohio train. When the bell boy knock
ed on his door at that hour there was
no response and the night clerk was
summoned. The room was found
empty and the window raised. Inves
tigation disclosed the body of Mr.
White, lying in an areaway beneath
the window twenty-five feet below. It
is supposed that Mr. White awoke
shortly before the time he was to be
called and being a very large man and
a great sufferer from heat, seated him
self in the window and dozed long
enough to lose his balance.
Mr. White was married several years
ago to Miss Nellie Custer of West Vir
ginia. She survives him with one
daughter. The remains were prepared
for burial by Hamrick & Co., after the
coroner's inquest, and sent to Ivy for
interment.
Killed While Asleep.
In regard to the death of Tucker
Sprousc, who was killed near Augusta
Springs by a ('. &O. train,
the Clifton Forge Review says: Tucker
Sprouse, a young white man about 25
years old, was killed near Ford wick
this morning by fast passenger train
No. ."• at 5:30 o'clock. Sprouse was
asleep on the main line of the C. & O.
and his body was not seen in time for
J. H. Johnson to stop the
train and save the life of the unfortu
nate man. Sprouse was instantly kill
ed and it is hardly probable that he
knew what struck him. His body was
turned over to the county authorities
for burial. It is not known why the '
deceased selected the railroad track for
a place to rest and the mere fact that
he was a trespasser relieves the railway
company of all responsibility.

Eye Don'ts
Don't buy glasses as you would shoes;
they should be fitted by an op
tician.
Dox't wear other people's glasses ;
they were probably fitted for
other troubles than yours.
Dox't let some cheap fakir tamper
with your eyes ; call on a legit
mate optician who has an office
or a regular place of business.
Dox't wear blue or colored glasses;
they may seem lo give relief,
but are really most injurious.
The man who prescribes them
should be able to give more
beneficial results with clear
glasses. We can,

' price of $15 to insure a mare in foal. Parting with mare forfeits insurance. All care will be taken to prevent accidents,

Mr. A. G. Fifer, Staunton, Va.
Dear Mr. Fifer—My plant is working all O. K. I have
re-charged it and had no trouble in doing so, I think any
one should be able to do so without any trouble, as it
seems very simple to handle in every way,and works like
a clock, it is the delight of the entire family, it has done
away with the worry of having to fill lamps and clean
chimneys, and better still it has stopped the carrying of
lamps from room to room, it also makes it pleasant to
read anywhere in the room, no gathering around the ta-
ble with the heat and bad odor to contend with, which
is when using lamps. I find my store better lighted with
half the lights than it was with lamps. I would not be
without it now if it cost me double the amount I paid.
Very truly yours, T. D. ROBINSON.
The above plant was purchased aud installed through Fifer
Bros., of Staunton, Va., now with the Virginia, Plumbing
and Lighting Co., 22 Central Aye., Staunton, Va.
