The Lost Cause. The New York Press appears to be sur prised because the Southern people do not readily accept such school histories of the civil war as are approved in the North, says the Washington Post. It is an old and familiar subject. For more than thirty years the South has been protesting against such school books, and the North has been expressing astonish ment thereat. It would seem that in all those years a clearer view of the situation might have found lodgtpeqt in the North ern mind. If the _ conditions were re versed, if the people of the North were situated as the Southern people are, they would object as strenuously as the South objects to school books which class the fathers of the school children as rebels and, therefore, traitors. The Southern people do not believe that they or their fathers were rebels. They hold that they were patriots, fight ing for what they believed to be their rights, for a cause they believed to be just. And if the New York Press and the Northern people generally would re view the ground on which the Southern contention is based, they would get a broadening of ideas that might be whole some. In the first place, it is an unde niable fact that oup'"4 more perfect union" could not have been formed bad it been understood that a State once in could not, of its own motion, go out. However preposterous that idea may seem in the light of recent history, it is simply a statement ot fact. The claimed right of secession was an open question from the infancy ot the republic until it was finally and forever settled by the great war that ended at Appomattox in 1865. Secession was a fearful mistake, but it wasnotacrime. Jefferson Davis. Gener' al Lee, General Jackson, and their, as sociates, just as sincerely believed in the right of a State,or any number of States, to secede, as Abraham Lincoln, General Grant, General Sherman, and their as sociates believed in the right of the gener- 1 al government to protect and preserve : the territorial integrity of the Union. That extreme doctrine ot State rights was : the dominant belief in the South. Men are largely what education and environ ment make them. That is why Robert E. Lee, t'uan whom a more honest and honorable man has never lived, deemed it his duty in the sight of God and his fellow men to resign his commission in the United States and go with his Stale. That is the reason why " Stonewall " Jackson prayed and fought and died for the Confederacy. That is the reason why the people of the South gave an example of such sublime devotion, such courage, such self-sacrifice, such fortitude as will stand forever as a glorious attestation of American heroism. Is it strange that the people of the South are sensitive on this school history ques ton ? Would it not be stranger still if they were indifferent? Could intelligent and honest men of the North respect them if they were willing to have their children to condemn their fathers and look with pitying charity mingled with contempt on the graves of those who died for the Confederacy. In this restored, happy and prosperous Union there is, or ought to be, sufficient broadmindedness to do justice to all who bore a part on either side in our great internal conflict. There were no rebels, for the question around which the con flict raged had never been decided. It is well for the South, well for the country and for the world that the Union was saved and that the curse of the South? human slavery?was abolished. But no good end could be served, or anything but a base purpose promoted by teaching the preseut and future generations of Southern children to dishonor the men who fought for Southern independence. Senator Faulkner Say* There is Nothing to be Desired in Either Candidate or Platform. (Spuclal to tlic WbcdlosI5cgis/er.) Washington, D. C. July 12.?"J liav'c never read a better national platform than that adopted . by the Democratic party at Kansas City," remarked ex-Sena tor Faulkner, of West Virginia. '? It is written inplain language, says exactly | what it means/and y.-ithout indirection. It seems a hardship that a few small dele gations like those from Hawaii and Ari zona Territory should have been able to defeat the wish of a majority of the con ' vention to only reaffirm the Chicago plat form, " the Senator added as he spoke of the splendid efforts pf Gen. J. W. St. Clair, the member of the committee 0:1 resolutions from West Virginia, to pre vent the insertion of the 16 to 1 clause. | ?' What prospects have the Democrats of tarrying West Virginia this falf ?" " If %ve had as much money as our op ponents," said Sir. Faulkner, "there suit would not be in doubt for a moment, 1 but most of our Democrats are poor men, while the West Virginia Republicans have plenty of money. I know that we shall make a strong fight, for the election this fall is of unusual importance to us. The next Legislature will have the redis tricting of the State, and, as our con stitution forbids any redisricting except once in ten years, when the census is taken, it would be possible for the Repub licans to so arrange the Legislative dis tricts that nothing short of a political revolution would overturn their majority. They could also arrange the Congres sional districts so that we couldelect only one Democrat out of the four." Dr. Miles' Pain Pills, "One cent a dose." Hon. William J. Bryan. Tera bj Stalls flie Btiative Importance of Frvt Sitcfr and Imperialism. Lincoln. Xeb.. July 17.?William J. Bryan's attention was called to-day to the fact that some anti-imperialists had announced they would be opposed to him on account of the silver plank in the plat form, and he was asked as to whether this fact would serously affect the anti imperialist vote. He said: "Several gold standard opponents of imperialism have already announced their intention to support the Democratic ticket, although the anti-imperialistic league has not acted officially. In such a matter each individual is governed by his own views as to the relative import ance of the issues. The Democratic plat form declares the question of imperialism to be the paramount issue. If any op ponent ot imperialism refuses to support the Democratic ticket because of the sil ver plank, it must be because he consid ers the money question more important than the Phillipine question: that is he prefers a gold standard empire to a bi metalic republic. When the test comes I believe that those who adhere to the doctrine that governments derive their just powers, not irom super ion force, but from the consent of the governed, will support our ticket, even though they do not endorse the silver plank." Items of Interest. Pimples on the face are not only annoy ing, but they indicate bad blood. Hood's Sarsaparilla cures them by purifying the blood. Dr. Frederick Humphreys, the manu facture! of Humphreys' Specifics, died July 8, at Monmonth Beach, after a lin gering illness, in his eighty-fifth year. Col. L. Victor Baughman says he is helping to arrange for an active campaign, expecting to carry the State of Maryland and Frederick county for Bryan and Stevenson. ? In the town of Shenandoah, I'age county, the "Wets" won at the recent election by a majority of 41. The total vote cast was 139. The town has been " dry" for four-years. Hon. C. J. Faulkner informs us that his services in this campaign have been placed at the disposal of the National, as well as the State Democratic Committees, and that he intends to lend all the assist ance in his power to accomplish the triumphant election of Bryan and Steven son. Senator Faulkner is a thoroughly posted and effective speaker, and his services will be in great demand. [Berkeley Democrat. Sioofor Bottle. Mrs. S. B. Winship, 111 Washington St. Providence, R. I., after using one bottle of Drummond's Lightning Remedy for Rheumatism wrote to tlie Drummond Medicine Co., New York, saying she would not take One Hundred Dollars for the benefit received. If you have any form of rheumatism and wish to get rid of it, send #5 to the Drummond Medicine Co., and they will send to you express addressed two bottles of their remedy? enough for a month's treatment. Agents wanted. Following the system adopted a year or two ago by the B. & O. Railroad, the conductors and brakemen of the Norfolk & Western Railway will hereafter wear stripes on their uniforms, each stripe in dicating five years service. Capt Walter Hutchings is the oldest conductor 011 the entire N. & W. system, having been in the employ of the company for twenty years. He was the first conductor on the 3ld Shenandoah Valley road. The Baltimore and Ohio railroad has taken a new step. Formerly when an employe desired to take a ttjp to another part of the road he had to apply for a special pass. This order of things has been changed and in the last few days quarterly passes have been issued to the engineers, conductors, firemen and brake man who have been in the employ of the company for one year. These passes are ?rood for any part of the road, northeastern and western branches. This action of the company will be a labor-saving move for them, besides giving the old and faithful employes a chance to take a trip now and then without having to send to the main office and spend several days in getting a return.-Martinsburg Stateman. WOMAN iS UKE A DEUDATE MUSICAL INSTRUMENT In good condition she is sweet and lovable, and sings life's song on & joyful harmonious string. Out of order or unstrung, there is discordance and unhappiness. Just as there is one key note to all music so there is one key note to health. A woman might as well try to fly without wings as to feel well and look well while the organs that make her a wemin are weak or diseased. She must be healthy inside or she can't be healthy outside. There are thousands of women suffering silently all over the country. Mistaken modesty urges their silence. While there is nothing more admirable than a modest woman, health is of the first importance. Every other con sideration should give way before it. Brad field's Female Regulator is a medicine for womon'silis. It is thesaf est andqu ic k est way to cure leu corrhea, falling of the womb, nervous ness, headache, backache and gen eral weakness.

They de fine^ this balance as "a sound mind in a sound body." A weak or sickly bodv tends to drag down the mind to its -own level. Keen the body in health and the minu will take care of itself. The health of the body depends mainly on two things: A sound stomach and pure blood. Dr. Pierce's Golden Med ical Discovery preserves the bal ance of health, because it makes the stomach strong and the blood pure.
