Rheumatism
Do you want to get rid
of it % If so, take Dr. Miles
Nervine modified as di
rected in pamphlet around
bottle. In addition to the
direct curative properties
it has a soothing effect up
on the nervous system by
which the rheumatic
pains are controlled, and
rest and sleep assured.
It has made many cures
of this painful disease,
some of them after years
of suffering. If it will
cure others why not you.
If your case is compli
cated, write us for advice,
it costs you nothing and
may save you prolonged
suffering.
“I was so crippled that I could
scarcely walk. After having my shoes
on for an hour or two I could manage
to walk by suffering the pain. Then
I began to have pains all through
my system. My doctor told me I had
an acute attack of inflammatory
rheumatism. I read about Dr. Miles’
Nervine, bought a bottle and I com
menced to get better from the start
and for the past six months have
scarcely any pain, and am able to
walk as well as ever.”

Your druggist sells Dr. Miles’ Nerv
ine, and we authorize him to return
price of first bottle (only) if It falls

County Court Proceedings
It was ordered that Justices of the
Peace who have copies of the West Vir
ginia Code, and whose terms of office
expired with the old year, shall turn
over such books to their successors in
office. The newly elected Justices are
having difficulty in getting their prede
cessors to turn over the codes to them,
the same being public property except
in cases where J ustices bought them out
right, paying for them with their own
good money.
Fines due from collection of the sev
eral Justices of the Peace of the Coun
ty were reported and turned into the
county treasury as follows for the year
1908: C. F. Gallaher, $55.85; H. H.
Pendleton, $35.00; Chas. H. Briggs, $27.
00; Vincent G. Moore, $25.00.
Miscellaneous orders amounting to
$1366.15 were accepted from the sheriff
Orders on account of free turnpikes
were accepted, amounting to $694.80,
and parish orders for $124.67. There
were also in the list of orders accepted
a large number from the various road
surveyors of the county, aggregating
several thousand dollars.
Former Sheriff Gardner reported a
number of small estates taken in charge
by him as committee administrator.
The balance of funds in his hands he de
sired to turn over to the court for his
successor. The amount of these bal
ances was $255.35.
The information came to the know
ledge of the court that the Court
House is protected by insurance poli
cies amounting to only $11,000.00. it
was ordered that additional insurance
to the amount of $5,000 be taken out,
and the policies for the same be pre
pared by Messrs. Moore & Moore, in
surance agents.
On Monday the court resumed the
taking of testimony in the matter of
the application for a franchise on the
part of the Winchester and Washing-1
ton City Railway Company. Most of
the day was occupied by witnesses for
or against the granting of the franchise,
and be court reserved its decision in the
case until Wednesday.
Much interest centered in the order
of the Court in connection with the
granting of the power franchise Wed
nesday morning. The order of the court
had been held over from Monday, pend
ing a study of the subject matter are
the part of the commissioners. Both the
•Jefferson County Telephone Company
and the Winchester and Washington
City Railway Company were dissatisfied
with the court's decision when a vote
was finally taken, resulting in the re
jection of that part of the franchise,
providing for the privilege of erecting
power poles and stringing electric wins
along the road from Charles Town out
the Flowing Spring road to Shenandoah
Junction, and granting the franchise for
the same right on the county road from
Shenandoah Junction to the Berkeley
county line by way of Kearneysville.
The electric company will, it is said,
either ask for a franchise over another
road to the Junction, or buy a right of
way through the farms between the lat
ter place and Charles Town. To grant
the franchise, as the court did, for a
part of the road between Charles Town
and Kearneysville, will leave the tele
phone company almost as much disabled
in its service as though the entire ap
plication had been granted The tele
phone people are said to be preparing
an appeal to the Circuit Court to pre
vent the electric company from putting
its power wires on any portion of the
county road parallelling their wires.
State’s Attorney George D. Moore was
in court looking after the legal end of
the county’s interest in the application,
and earnestly advised against granting
it. His objection was based on a con
i viction that the enabling act under
which the court is empowered to grant
such franchises is clearly unconstitu
tional.
In response to a petition from the
people of Bakerton, the court appointed
C. D. Carter, a constable for that sec
j tion of the county. It was shown to
the court that at times Bakerton has a
miniature riot, and those who take part
in it get away before they can be ap
prehended because there is no officer
residing there to make an arrest.
3 la the matter of the proposed change
• in the Roper mill road, it was ordered
that the new road be laid out by the res
j idence of Miss Bettie Sublette, and con
: nect with the Sbannondale road at the
dwelling on the farm of Roper brothers.
| Miss Sublett was allowed $25 in damages

Uncle Remus’s—The Home Magazine
for January leads off with one of the last
editorials ever written by the late Joel
Chandler Harris. Itis called: “Progress
—In the Best and Highest Sense,” and
is an emphatic, though temperate, state
ment of the central thought which ran
all through its writer’s life and philoso
phy: that the piling up of material
wealth does not indicate progress in
nearly the same degree that intellectual
and spiritual advancement does. The
writer saw great hope and encourage
ment in the fact that the South, in par
ticular, is reading more and more; the
people are buying more and more books.
The fiction for the number includes an
installment of “Gilbert Neal,” Will N.
Harben’s great Southern story, a New
Year’s story by Mary E. Bryan, called
“The Unmasking of Aunt Sophy,” and
a strongly emotional tale by Paul Grant
which deals with the fortunes of an old
Southern family. It is called “Last of
the Lindseys.”

The above Society was organized in

Virginia.
: Shortly after organization Hon. H. G.
‘ Davis, the great friend of West Virginia
s orphans, gave the Society a home for
5 the unfortunate little ones, which is lo

menting this generous gift by the yet
r more helpful donation of $100 per month
since 1896. To this first building Mr. Dc
vis has added a two-story building, thus
0 greatly increasing our capacity for car
u ing for orphan children.
Into this home we receive the home
less children, being admitted at the rat<
