THE ULLY LAND COMPANY.
AUK SELLING CITY LOTS ON TIIK OLD Git All AM 1-AKM AT LKWlSI'l'UG. W. V A. The Colein in ,ltealt\ Company has juvt sub-di vided what is known as the old Graham l*';irin at Lewishurg into city lots and have placed sa.nu* in tin- hands of the Lilly Land Coni panv for sale on easy tonus, and tins property is now known as tlu* "(irahain Addition" to tlu* City of Lewishurg. Tin* (irahain Addition is right jammed up against tin* City of Lewishurg and is tin* most ideal building property that was ever placed on the .market in Lewishurg. These lot sare sold on terms of in per cent. down, and ."> per cent, each .month without interest or taxes un til property is paid for. It looks like that Lewishurg is now taking on new life and is fast becoming one of the progressive cities of Southern West Virginia. Why? Because Lewishurg is sur rounded by one ? ?f the greatest fanning sections of the State and is only a short distance from Bonce verte. the main line of the C & () Bailroad with macadamized road and short line of rail road leading from Boneevcrte to Lewishurg. Lewishurg has what is known as Greenbrier Military School, high school, graded school, and Lewis hurg Seminary, for girls. In other words, Lewishurg is one of the noted school towns of West Vir ginia. As the old saying goes, "an education is worth more to your children than all the , money in the country. ** and if you are interested in educating your children, which every American Citizen should he, you cannot find a better location th'an Lewishurg. If you are interested in a lot on the Graham Addition to Lewishurg, go to Lewishurg at once and call at the Lewishurg Ice Cretin Company's Oflice and our representative, Mr. E. M Bowyer. will show you these lots. But we will advise you to not delay the matter as we believe it is only a matter of a short time until every one of these lots will be sold. Think of living in Lewishurg in one of the best school towns in Southern West Virginia, located in the famous blue grass valley of Greenbrier County. We also have a large number of lots and truck farms located in the cities of Pirineeton, Beckley, Oak Hill, Montcalm, W. Va, and in the Ohio Valley near Huntigton, sold on easy pay(ment plan. We would like for you to look at any of our property- that you are in. tcrested in at once, hut if you can't go now, he sure and write us at Princeton, W. Va.. stating the prop erty that you are interested in and we will have one of our agents see you at once and explain our wonder fill proposition. LILLY LAND COMPANY Home Ollice: Prieeton, W. Va. LAST WORD TO GREENBRIER DEMOCRATS Ladies imri (icnttcmen: On a visit to your comity litis week meeting voters at a number of places, I have been warned by a number of citizens, of a possible at tempt that may be made at the eleventh hour, to deny the correct ness of certain statements made by jne in my paper, "Pick and Shovel," comparing the records of myself and of ,my opponent, l>r. McClintic, as members of the Legislature. These comparisons were first made several weeks ago and hun dreds of copies of the paper con taining them were sent to lire en brier citizens, thus giving ample op portunity for their repudiation, if incorrect. A later issue of my paper containing practically the same comparison, has been circulated this week and the correctness of its statements have been verified to a number of your citizens by the printed record of the journal of the House of Delegates in my possession copy of which is furnished to each imvnhertof the Legislature. Copy of this record is in the hands of Hon. John \Y. Arhuckle, of Lcwisburg, and can no doubt he consulted if my statements are doubled or any attempt is made to deny them. I greatly appreciate the many as suiances of support, expressed by hundreds of (ircenbrier friends and shall endeavor to repay them by honest, conseient ie.us service as a member of Congress from this Dis trict. ?I. ALI-UKI) TAYLOH. Candidate for the Democratic Nomi nation for Congress. l-'a\ elt'.'vi lie, \Y. Ya. ( Political Adverii ^ing. ) TAXES FOUR TIMES HIGHER. I have accepted a pressing invi tation to take part in hay harvesting ;ii home; hence not calling on fann ers before the Primary. The tax question concerns the small tax-payer even more than the bigger ones. For instance a small fanner sold an ordinary calf two years ago .for and paid his taxes. The farm would sell, no doubt, for less money now. but. if I he Assessor obeyed "orders" his lax Hi i s year will be at least fc-10 and may be he will ^cl sin for the calf. Four calves to pay the lax on the same properly. Farm products wen Idown; taxes went up. Yes we are borrowing money to build roads and school houses but there is is plenty of room for lower taxes anyway. I am opposed to the true and actual plan of valuation be cause nobody knows the "true and 1 actual value" and it lends to highci ! ! taxes. Opposed to a higher legal 1 rate of interest than six per cent j no matter what you hear to tin- con 1 trary. Farmers, merehants and (others cannot afl'ord to pay a high ' er rate. Very hopeful for the future of our j count \ and the western part in par ticular. where such wonderful dc | velopuient is under way. Wo would ?.!l'er inducement for progress in that direction which means a market for our agricultural poduets right at our doors. Let the people say how many months of school they want, not charging thean for more than they get. 1 favor giving local hoards of cditc.i? ion and trustees more author ity; "let the people rule." While looking at the tax question from :he standpoint of the farmer I have an opportunity to know something of the needs of business in other lines. W. W. STEVENS. Alderson. W. Va. July 22. ll>22 ( Political Advertising.! (Political Advertising.) MIKE I*'. MATH EN V. Republican candidate for Congress, in his linal swing of the District in his specta cular campaign for nomination, left the following for publication: "Congressman Echols seeing his lines wavering under the onslaught of Hepuhlican forces, begins mud sliugiug ca.mpaign, and attempts to stir up past party differences and keep alive past party feuds. Thi.; is an oil year, Rcpublcans should pull together and stay together. Itepub licans know that I stumped the dis trict for Echols in ISMS They also know that I stumped the district for Echols in 11>20 and by untiring elTorts contributed to the election of the entire Republican ticket, no cry of party irregularity was then raised against me by Echols or any one else. I have championed the cause of Republicanism in this State for the past quarter of a century. Republicans have heard me from the summit of the Flat Top moun tain to Kenova. and from the Pan handle to North Fork in McDowell and they know me as one of th'eir number battle scanred in the service of the Grand Old Party. I now want to go to Congress to help in the re constrnictin of the industry of this country. The party of Lincoln has always been equal to any emergency and I believe it is still the instru mentality through' which the great est progress may be made. 1 want to help put West Virginia on the ?map, redeem its fair name and de fend its citizenship. 1 want to be of real service in relation to its in dustrial life. We have had four years of Echols, if his record is sat isfactory. then we should vote for him in the primary, but I call at tention to the people that our State has been maligned and no voice raised in its defense, liberty bonds bought in good .faith were forced below par and bought up by war profiteers, farmers have suffered by forcing down .the price of cattle anil farm products, industry has been crippled and our people been thrown out of employ, incut through failure of Congress to pass a pro tective Jaritl* law, foreign goods are now being shipped into our ports and crowding out our own manu factured products forcing unem ployment and unrest among our people. The grocerym an on the corner, the workman in the shop, and the farmer in the field all share the burdens of business depression. The ti,me has come when we would have more business and less politics more attention to business and less attention to .ccuring political jobs for relatives, the business man should be given a chance to expand his trade, the farmer should have better prices for his cattle and farm products, highways should be im poved and extended, laboring men should be given a chance to earn a decent living and hungry women Mid children should be fed. This is a land of opportunity by the adop t ion of an aggressive policy of inter nal development we can make of it the richest, happiest and most con tented people in the world. With the rising tide of public sentiment tl'ioughout flu* district in my favor, not withstanding the fact that 1 have only been in 1he race for three weeks, the people still have an op portunity to nominate me for Con gress and I believe they arc going lo do it in the Pninarv on Autfust the first.

With the air about us filled with sounds we cannot hear until science opens our ears; with a printed page radiating music that gives forth words and from the succession of words, thoughts, and from the thoughts full fellowship with all aspiring minds, what Is not Impossible? If the air Is full of things unheard, why may not space be tilled with things unseen, and why may not "the forms of the de parted" "enter through the open door" when science has pried it open? What a show It Is, the phantas magoria that the curious mind of man has made out of a rather simple old J world thnt our grandfathers knew. When we can call old Ben Franklin op n the phone, how we shall Jolly the old man for sending that key up on the kli?v t'> bring down the light- | nlng from the clouds!

It has a "quack" sound, but is high-pitched sud not so loud aa the raucous quacking of the hen docks. Pending. "Well, want to marry my daughter.
