Our Mountain State.
Extract from I fie Address of Governor Atkinson
Before the Editorial Atnt-cuiUion at
Parkersburg.
And now, Mr. President, to what extent
has the press of the State figured in its
growth and progress? In 1638, Stephen
Daye, an English printer, arrived at
Boston, bringing a font of type, and in
the following year set up a printing press
at Cambridge, 'the first American pub
lication was an almanac, calculated for
New England, and bearing the date of
1639. From this beginning the "art
preservative" began to spread, and now
we find a printing press in every town
throughout the land.
Sir William Berkeley, of Virginia, was
lamentably wrong and narrow in his out
look in 1671. when he said: "I thank
God there are no free schools nor print
ing ; and I hope we shall not have these
hundreds years; for learning has brought
disobedience and heresy and sects into
the world, and printing has divulged
them, and libels against the best govern
ment. God keep us from both." Look
ing back two hundred vears, we wonder
that even then one could be so hidebound
as to allow himself to utter such a senti
ment as that. The press is the leading
educator in all lands to-day. It is essen
tial to progress and good government
everywhere. It is a mighty lever to up
lift all nations and all peoples. News
papers and books have awakened the
sleeping talents of millions, and have
lifted them to higher conceptions of life
and duty. Paper bullets of the brain
are more powerful in the cause of truth
than grape and canister belched from
the muzzle of seventy-six-pound Krupp
guns. Newspapers are necessary for the
advancement of the interests of men, and
this is why they are now so numerous in
the civilized sections of the world. Thirty
years ago. when I was the publisher of a
weekly newspaper in West Virginia, such
publications were by no means numerous,
but now one or more are issued in every
county in the State, and in every city of
5.000 inhabitants we have the daily mes
sages to every household. These publica
tions have attracted the attention of men
of means in other and older common
wealths, and have done much to induce
them to cast their lots with us in the
wealthy Mountain State of the great re
public. Too much credit and praise, there
fore, cannot be given to the West Virgi
nia newspapers for what they have done
and are now doing for our people, from
the brickyards of Hancock county, to the
Great Kanawha, and from the coal fields
?f McDowell to the rock-crowned ridges
of the Potomac.
On the wliole, my fellow citizens, all of
us are justlyproudofourMountain State,
because mountains are useful, healthful,
grand. They inspire their inhabitants to
higher aims and purposes in life. They
are essential to one's growth, develop
ment and happiness. Man naturally longs
for mountain air and mountain freedom,
because mountaineers are always free.
Plow down your mountainsand your hills,
and the world will become a desert. They
furnish fountains for our rivers, timber
for our dwellings, stones for our quarries
fields tor ourherds,scenery for our people,
minerals for our wealth ; they break the
ieadly sweep of the tornado and in ways
without number they add to our comfort
and enjoyment. Above the crests of our
West Virginia hills shines the eternal sun,
as he rolls his fiery chariot ncross the sky.
The silver streams wind their mennderitior
ways down the slopes, murmuring their
endless songs The majestic rivers sweep
through the gorges, canons and vales as
they drive ever onward toward the seas.
The music of the mountain songsters, as
they leap from bough to bough of the trees
along the hills, ceases only by the coming
of the night. The roar of the cataract
lulls our people to restful repose, and
awakes them from their slumbers at the
dawning of morn. These majestic West
Virginia mountains have withstood the
storms of the centuries, and will stand
amid the sunshine of millenial glory.
Great cities, massive temples, granite
cathcdrals. will sooner or later crumble
into dust. The pyramids will finally fall.
The sphinx will be gnawed assunder by
the tooth of time. The globe itself may
ultimately melt with fervent heat. The
sun may drag along the jarring heavens
and refuse to shine. The light of the
stars may pale away. The moon may roll
up the rending sky, and hang her latent
livery on the wings of the dying night:
but these West Virginia hills will continue
to stand until the centuries cease to roll.
Mr. President, we have in the Mountain
State no malaria, no grasshoppers, no
mosquitoes, no razorbacked hogs, no
cyclones, no deep snows, no long winters,
no glaciers, and panthers and bears and
wolves and foxes are rapidly going, and
are well nigh gone. We have no State
debt; taxes arc reasonable; churches are
flourishing; our schools are as good as
the best; we have over a million popula
tion ; upwards of a million dollars in our
treasury.and yet? e have but fairly started
into business. Talk about West Virginia,
my brothers, she is to-day the rushlight
of the republic. She is the coming com
monwealth of the continent. She is the
hub of the universe in natural wealth.
She is the flag-ship in the procession of
progress. She is the wonder of the cen
tury, and is the tavored State for young
men to live in and for old men to die in.
She is the Eldorado of the coming cen
tury. Her cold fields are richer than the
gold mines of the Transvaal. Her timber
is taller than the cedars of Lebanon, and
her oil pools are more valuable than the
i i;ertis of Golconda or tile silver of the
Klondike. We have the watermelon and
: the pomegranate and the grape. W e
have the milk, the lioney and the peach.
We have tall men. sun-crowned and
brawned and brave and the prcttie>t,
happiest, sweetiest women beneath the
stars. Our rockribbed mountains tower

Few feats of skating have ever ex-1
celled the exploit of one of Napoleon's 1
officers performed shortly after the
tight at Jena In 1800. The emperor
dlspatehcd an officer to Marshal Mot*-1
tier requiring him to seize certain Im
portant towns without delay. When I
the officer arrived at the mouth of the I
Elbe, where the river Is 7Vi miles wide. I
he was threatened with serious loss of I
time. The river was Just covered with
lee, therefore to row over was out of |
the questlou. He could not cross by I
the nearest bridge without going 20
miles ont of lils way on roads heavj |
with snow, and he grudged the time
that would thus he wasted. So he re I
solved to skate across the thin, freshly I
formed Ice. Had lie tried walking he I
would have sunk at once, lint by skim 1
mlng along on his skates at the top of
his speed he got over the river hotli dry
and unharmed. By this daring If dan- I
gerous deed he saved six hours, did |
what Napoleon liade him do and wonl
great credit for his bold and clever ex-1
plolt.

Boole of the Royal Blue for July.
The July numbe| of the Book of-tbo
Uoj-hI Blue, which is published regularlj
every month by the Baltimore & Ohio I*. I
R., is especially interesting. It has been I
the custom to devote the July number I
every year to stories of the Civil Wsr I
and the* present number contains ?
graphic description of the buttle of An I
tietsm, illustrated by photographs taken I
shortly after the battle, as well, as photos
of more recent date. Particularly re- I
markable is the photograph, used as a
frontispiece, of President Lincoln intq^ I
viewing General McClellan at Antietam, 1
in October, 1862, and the Burnnide Bridge,
showing an army train crossing over it.
These photographs were loaned and pub
lished by permission of the War Depart- I
ment. An accurate description is given
of the position of the Union forces in the
battle, in accordance with reports of Gen.
McClellan, while the graphic description
of the closing ecene at Burnside Bridge
is quoted from a war correspondent who
was present at the time. An official map
published by the Government enables the
reader to follow the battle closely.
The movement of troops to and from
the battle of Antietam greatly affected
the lines of the Baltimore & Ohio R. R.,
which were then constantly in a state ol |
demoralization from the continued fight
ing in its territory.
The number also contains an interest
ing war romance ol Virginia, entitled
"A Womanly Woman ;'' a poem by I5r.
Tbos. Calver, of Washington, on "The
March of the Gallant 6th Corps," and
anothor poem by the same author, enti
tled "Too Poon They Die."

Sleeplessness marks the very climax
of human suffering. It is only a step
removed from insanity. When sleep no
longer restores the exhausted nature, the
str>,S8le with disease cannot last long.
The starting point of the nervous dis
orders which produce ill - health and
sleeplessness, is generally a diseased
condition of the womanly organs. Re
store these organs to sound health and
the appetite comes back, the day's work
no longer wearies, and sleep is sound
and refreshing. Dr. Pierce s Favorite
Prescription cures diseases of the wom
anly organs. It stops the drains which
weaken women ; it heals the inflamma
tion and ulceration, and cures female
weakness.
