Friend Haines: Dear Sir.?My wife and I returned from our Scottish and English lake trip on the 4th, having been a little over two weeks making the round. Both going and coming we passed through the most beautiful and most interesting parts of England and Scotland. The main cities visited were Nottingham. Birmingham Derby, Sheffield, Leeds, Edinburg and Glasgow. On account of the Plague we only spent about two hours in the latter city. To me, the city ot the greatest in terest visited was Edinburgh, containing 350.000 inhabitants. It is in every way the most compact and solidly built city T have seen here or in America. In the first place every house and public build ing in it, large and small, are made of cut stone. I did not see a single building within the city limits made of brick or weather boards?all stone, and every building has a slate or tile roof?nearly all slate, however. No wooden shingles or tin are used for roofing either in Eng land or Scotland. The great scarcity of timber in both countries of course ac counts for so little wood being used, but I was of the impression that wooden shingles were brought here from America ?ocean freights being so cheap. Even the mountains we saw in the northern part of England and Scotland, like those in Southern California, have no timber upon them. All the streets in Edinburgh are paved with stone, cut and set on edge, like Broadway, New York, is paved, and I consider the main business street there handsomer than either Broadway or Pennsylvania avenue in Washington. It is as wide as the latter, and the buildings are five and six stories high, of a much prettier style of architecture, and the side-walks are 20 feet wide instead of 10. All buildings and most of the fences in Scotland are made of stone. Hedges take the place ot stone fences in England, but as you draw near London brick be gins to predominate for building pur poses. Almost every chimney top in both countries has a terra cotta pipe about 3 feet long on it. In looking over the tops | of the houses here in London they are almost as thick as stubbles in a wheat field, and look extremely odd. Of course, friend Haines, I know that most of the readers of your valued paper are more or less familiar with the history of this part of the world, but there are some things of minor detail which even Macaulay overlooked, which interest me, and likely would others. None of the railroads here cross each other at grade-the same with all roads and public highways?they must go either under or over the railroad. You cannot cross the railroad tracks even in stations. There is either a tunnel under the track or a bridge overhead, through which you must pass to go from one side of platform to the other. The tracks are drepressed about three feet below the floor of sta tions, so that passengers step onto trains on a level with the floor of the coaches avoiding stepping up or down. Nearly all the bridges are made or stone or brick, arched. We passed over the great Forth bridge, the main span of which is 200 feet wider than the main span of Brook lyn bridge, only it is on the cantilever plan. I regard it more wonderful than the Brooklyn bridge, the highest part of the iron work being over 300 feet above the water level. Before reaching Edinburgh we stopped and spent one day at Melrose, where is located the grand old ruin of Melrose Abbey. From that point we drove to Dry-borough Abbey, where Sir Walter Scott lies buried?then to Abbottsford, his beautiful home on the river Tweed, which is furnished and arranged just as he left it. Among the relics and many costly and beautiful things given him and gathered by him. during his eventful life, were two pistols and a blotting boojc found in Napoleon's carnage at Water loo ; a lock of " Bonnie Prince Charlie's " hair; also a glass tnmbler upon which Robert Burns cut some verses with a diamond; and Rob Roy's sword and pistol, and hundreds of valuable keep sakes too numerous to mention. The half day spent in going through and over the famous castle in Edinburgh was full of interest. There are numerous buildings enclosed by the great wall cpn. j stituting the castle, which cover eleven I acres of ground?the whole upon a high rock overlooking the entire city. The principal things we saw there were: the large banquet hall in which Cromwell plotted the killingof Charles the First, the Regalia and Crown Jewels of Scotland, the room in which Mary. Queen of Scots lived ; where James the 6th was born! and the oldest chapel in Scotland, built by Queen Margaret in 1093. The visit to Holyrood Palace, which is located on the suburbs of Edinburgh, was much enjoyed. In that Is shown the old bedstead and bed upon which Mary, Queen of Scots, slept; the room used by Lord Darnley, in which was a fine oil painting of him and his brother; also the room in which Pizzio was murdered. Passing from Edinburgh to the Tros sachs, we spent several hours in Stirling, going through the castle there, jroni the top of which are to beseen four great battle fields, in one of which Wallace de feated the English in 1297, and his mon ument, 200 feet high, stands on the field. ro"1 thu stonc bridge, seen from the castle, built in 1500, was hung the last Roman Catholic prelate in Scotland, Archbishop Hamilton, for participating in the murder of the Recent Moray in 1570. In speaking of the drive to Dryborough Abbey, I forgot to state that we passed the house and old Fairfax estate, still owned by the descendants of the family of that name who lived in Virginia. Ad miral I- airfax, the last owner, died in Italy last spring, and the estate is soon to be sold, and will pass out of the family unless purchased by some of the distant relatives. I he trip back through the Trossachs and lakes of Scotland and England was as grand and beautiful scenery as that we saw going from Port Townscud to Alaska. Part of the way by boat, and part by coaches, and nice and weH ap pointed hotels at all stopping places ; and I might here state that the clerks in all hotels outside of London are ladies?not men, as in our country, and lady attend. ants at the bars serving drinks, which is the case here in London. At Dumfries, Scotland, we visited the humble home in which Robert Burns died, and his grave in the churchyard nearby. Saw his old trunk in the museum there, and the first bicycle invented. A half day was well spent in going through the Derby Crown China Works, at Derby. I was surprised that they would show the entire process to straujj ers but they do. From Derby we went to kenilworth and Warwick Castle, and saw the treasures in paintings, tapestries. iron vases and very old ornaments, swords, spears, &c. Then to Stafforn on Avon, where Shakespeare lived, died and was buried. Saw the old desk he used at school, and from the way it was hackcd up he must have been handy with his jack knife as well as with his peerless brain, baw the cottage in which he courted the winsome Anne Hathaway, and a quaint old relic it is. Stopped at the Red Lion hotel, in which Irving wrote his well known lines on Shakespeare. On the way from Stafford to London we stopped a half day at Oxford, and were shown through several of the prin cipal cottages there. Many of them show their great age. and are dismally black rom the soft coal burned there in the town, which completely surrounds and shuts them in. Unlike most cottagcs in our country, they have no spacious grounds surrounding them. Their en vironment is wretched. The many miles traveled by coach and carnage gave me the opportunity. I so much desired, of seeing the roads of both tngland and Scotland. They are with out exception smooth, solid and perfect. not a loose stonc of any size on them, and no ridges across them no matter how steep the grade, the ccnter being about four inches higher than sides, and of course all water runs off to sides. Tell gates in both countries were abolished WOMAN 19 LIKE A DEUOATE mvmoAL MmruuEKT In good condition she Is sweet and lovable, and sings life's song on a 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 whila the organs that make her a woman 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 la of the first Importance. Every other con sideration should give way before it.

Folks told mo their roads were all poor until the toll gates were all swept away, and the work of making and keeping roads was put in the hands of well-equipped professional road makers. That change marked the dawn of universal good roads, and the cost, they tell me, is really less than the dark age plan under which the grand old Virginias still groan and suffer. Do you think, friend Haines, the light ot prog ress, in road making, will ever find its way to the cave dwellers of our blighted, though beautiful country. Yours truly, Wm. W. Rouss.

During the year 1898 the Spanish war came on, and among those who were commissioned to serve as officers in the army was alleged. H. C. Getzendanner. When he accepted a commission as cap* tain his seat as a senator became vacant by the act, tor the constitution of the State says no person holding a lucrative office under the State, United States or any foreign government shall be eligible to membership in the Legislature, aud according to all decisions the acceptance of such an office at once ended his mem bership in the Senate. It was the duty of the Governor to is sue a proclamation calling for a spot in I election to choose a successor to Getzen danner, but lie did not do so. When the election day came on the Democrats nom inated and elected a man to the Senate, Hon. William Campbell, to succeed Getzendanner, and when the Legislature met in January. 1899, Mr. Campbell ap peared at the bar of the Senate to in. But the Republicans, hav|H siderable majority in the Senate!! that as Getzendanner wanted thcM should have it. and Mr. CampbelCT^rocci with the proper credentials to entitle him to a seat, was sent home to his people, and the man whom they had refused to ' elect in the first place was again foisted upon them as their senatorial representa tive. Hon. E. G. Pierson was electpd a Sen ator from the Ninth district in 1896. In 1898 he accepted a commission as lieuten ant in the army, thereby vacating his office. Hon. A. J. Stephenson, ot Clay county, was elected by the Democrats to succeed him, but when he appeared at the bar of the Senate to be sworn in, he found that the Republican majority were determined to retain the seat for Pierson, and he, too, was sent home to tell the peo ple that-the constitution was out of date, and a Republican majority in the Senate of West Virginia was bound by nothing save its own will and the wishes of the bosses. These are the facts from the records, and there is no gainsaying them. The acts of the Republican party in these matterswere unconstitutional, illegal, op pressive, and subversive of the rights of the people to choose their own senators and representatives according to law. To vote for the Republican candidates at the polls is to endorse these things and encourage their repetition, until all sem blance of obedience to the constitution and .the law shall be wiped away and those appointed to administer the affairs of the government will administer them according to their own personal desires and political interests and not in accor dance with the letter or the spirit of tie law. If voters think such things should net be, then they should cast their votes for the Democratic candidates, whose elec tion will mean a return to constitutional government, and a restoration of the people to the rights guaranteed them by the fundamental law of the land.
