[Entered at the Postoffice Alexandria, Virgin? ia, as second-class matter.] THAT SCHOOL HISTORY. Miss Kate Rowland, of Washington, D. C, has written, in reply to a request her opinion of Mrs. Lee's history of the United States, about which there has been so much discussion of late. Miss Rowland is a descendant of a distin? guished old colonial family, and, being herself an authoress, is a person whose opinion on any subject is well worth considering. Her letter is addressed to Colonel Kirk Otey, and is as follows : "I feel very much gratified that you should oak my opinion as to a school history for your little boy. The book that you speak of, by Mrs". Susan Pen dleton Lee, I have not yet seen, but I have read Mrs. Lee's biography of her father, Rev. William Nelson Pendle ton, commander of the artillery corps of the Army of Northern Virginia. It is a very interesting aud weil written memoir, and I am sure Mrs. Lee would succeed in a history of the United States. You see who she was, and by marriage she I*, of ourjhistoric Lee family, the widow of General Edwin Gray Lee. See ;tLee of Virginia?1642?1892"?b valuable work recently published by Dr. E. I. Lee, formerly of Alexandria, and now of Philadelphia. Mrs. Lee's history has been endorsed by the Confederate Veterans at Hous? ton, and, as shown in a prospectus of the book sent me by the publishers, by many teachers and others throughout the South. Several of them say that it is the only Bchool history that they have read that deals fairly with the South Mrs. Stonewall Jackson eudorses it, I notice. Professor James M. Garrett, of the University of Virginia, recommends it for use in schools. I admire your spirit about this matter. The veterans and the Daughters of the Confederacy must agitate the Bubject and protest until there is a reform in Virginia, and elsewhere, throughout the 'Confed? eracy.' " Colonel Otey has received a copy of the history and has made an examina? tion of that part of it which relates to the war between the States. He is convinced that the - account given of -that great struggle is a fair and impar? tial narration and does justice to the cause of the South. "The subject," says Colonel Otey, "will be brought up before the next meeting of the Garland Rodea^Camp, and it is possible that that body may take action on the same." Colonel Otey in a second conversa? tion on the subject said : "That part of it up to the late war is standard. The balance beginning with the seceesion of the southern States, through the war and down to the election of Harrison in 1888,1 have reviewed and as far as I can judge is a good history and would like to see it in our public schools."?Lynchburg New?. The Duke Arrested.?The Duke Marlborougb, the fiance of Miss Con suelo Vanderbilt, was arrested in Cen? tral Park, New York, yesterday after? noon, on the charge of violating a park ordinance. The duke was seen by a park policeman passing rapidly down a hill on his bicycle with his fest on the handles. This is in violation of a park ordinance made for the safety of persons using the hill. The duke ac? companied the policeman to the station. He said he regretted the occurrence, as he was unaware of the existence of any ordinance which he had apparently broken. Roundsman Ryan, who was in charge, discharged the duke after warning him not to repeat the offense. The duke returned to the Plaza Hotel immediately after he was released. The news of his arrest quickly spread among his acquaintances, a score or more of whom called to offer their condolence and to apologize for the police. The many senaational accounts sent out from New York concerning the arrest are untrue. Irving W. Larimore, physical direct? or of Y. M. C. A., Des Moines, Iowa, says he can conscientiously recommend Chamberlain's Pain Balm to athletes, gymnasts, bicyclists, foot ball players and the profession in general for bruises, sprains and dislocation; also for soreness and stiffness of the muscles. When applied before the parts become swollen it will effect a cure in one half the time usually required. For sale by L. Stabler & Co. A False Diagnosis. La Grippe is confounded by many porsons with a severe attack of catarrh, which in some respects resembles the former. These indi? viduals suffer severely with pain about the forehead, eyes and ears, with soreness in throat and stoppage of the nasal passages, and in fact, are incapacitated for work of any kind for days at a time. These are catarrhal sufferers. Ely's Cream Balm has been used with tho best results in such cases. The remedy will give instant relief. For Over Fifty Tears. An Old and Weix-Tbxed Remedy.?Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup has been us ad for over fifty years By millions of mothers for their children while teething, with perfect success. It soothes the child, softens the gums, allays all pain, cures wind colic, and is the best remedy for Diarrhoea. Is pleasant to the taste. Sold by Druggists in every part of the world.
