ROTIETHINfl TO THINK i im? n
A whII known banker aud business
man who has mtiuiute knowledge Ol
tho affairs of uearly every tuau in
his county, made tho ustouuding
statement uot mauy days agj, that
if a thorough house to hoiiB? canvass
were niado of tho cash capital of hi
people, the mau with a dollar iu
hand would bo the exception. In
this he did not include the hard cash
Baved from hetto" times by tho more

representative, Tuis county too,
is one of th uio-t prosperous ami
productive iu the State, aud is noted
for the thrift of tho peoulo as well
bs the uuvaryiug excellence of it>
tobacco, wheat, com and fruit
At thievery t mo the grauaries are
bursting open with surplus wheat
from two ?uo crops, Tho tobacco
crop is unusually good aud tho coru
product the most prodigal iu years,
The trouble is sirup y iu realizing
the tnouey, for tho ocal market ro
fuses wheat ut-fo cents,aod leas thuu
a third is offered ior iirdt-elass lugs

This state o' < vor production aud
otaguatiou is serious, uud yet, iu ul
most the same breath, this hauker
says these very people have uot
been in better condition siuce tho
w I.ne farmers uro saviug stru\

and to spare uu I want for nothing.
Thoy are devoting their attention to
barn yard aud dairy products,which
are always marketable, aud with
these pay for such things as thoy
mu9t have from tho stores, such as
coffee, sugar, clothes aud the like.
Tbey have learned the lesaou from
experience that mauy years of
preaching never could impurt?that
to be prosperous he must raise all
he needs, buy nothing his farm will
produce, und ovea go without the
uugar for his ooffee if ho is unaulo
to pay for it. In other words, koep

hazards. The result is that ho^s

i in: school it.?ok QUKsrioM,
Tin: Virginian has rooeived from
(Jov. O'Fcrrall and Attorney Uou
erul Scott, a pamphlet on tho school
book question, which presouts a re?
sult of the examination to asoertftiu
whether the patrons of the Virg iuia
schools wore paying more for books
than the patrons of the public schools
iu other States. The examination
wus made iu keeping with their
promise to tho people of Virginia iu
their publication of December '27,
IS94, The examination appears to
havo been very thorough. The
price of every hook used in Virginia
und adopted iu other titatos aud
Territories is given, und iu tho re?
spective ooluiuus tho price iu other
States or Territories iu which tho
book used appears upon tho list.
Tho result of tho investigation is
summed up by the assertiou ou tho
part of tho Governor and the Attor?
ney-General, that "the facts demon?
strate Unit it is uot true thut Vir
ginia bus been outrageously defraud?
ed," and that iu the investigation
they "have found uo discrimination
against Virginia." Tho pupcr is iu
excellent temper. There is a simple
prcsoutiition of facts aud a dignified
denial of the charges.

i ho darkest hour precedes the
morning, is uu old saying, and nt
preeat, while the condition of the
country appears darker than nt any
period iu the history of the past
three years of financial gloom, rays
of light arc gleaming from behind
the clouds, iudicutiag brighter
times. This is illustrated in the
comparative statements of failures
for January, 1895 aud 1894, tho dif?
ference being au encourugiug evi
denco of tho improved oonditiou of
business this year. Tho amount
iuvolved for liabilities this year for
?Tnnuuary, is reported at $15,103,
Jll'2, whilo for January 1894, it was
329,843,023, ami tho differeuoe is
greatest iu tho manufacturing die
triots where it was prophesied, as
the Chattanooga Times points out,
by the Republican high tariff priests
that calamity would surely follow in
the wake of the now tariff law.
Insolvent manufacturing concerns
for January, 1895, amounted to only
83,728,587, while for January, 1894,
they amounted to $11,589,715, or a
falling off in failures of mauufaotur
ing concerns of 63 per ceut. When
it is considered that 1894 showed a
decrease of ono-half of failures over
1S1K5, the begiuniug of lS.)? may be
taken 89 a very fair basis of argu?
ment that the country has reached
the lowest notoh of depression aud
is rapidly recuperating toward a full
return of confidence und business

NORFOLK'S JUBILEE YEAR.
It Should be Properly and Hand?
Nobfolk, Va., February 15. 1S9j.
Editor of the Virginian',
Referring to tho views expressed
in recent issues of Thk Virginian,
in regard to tho practicability of
celebrating tho fiftieth anniversary
of tho otty of Noafalk, I dosire to
say thut the idea appears to bo well
received as a feasible and expedient
undertaking. Norfolk has been fa?
vorably commented upou by tho
press of the country nud wo should
commence without deluy to present
attractions nud inducements to peo
plo to come here.
Tho time is opportune for a dem?
onstration of some kind. It occurs
to my mind that splendid results
would accrue to the city by having
n largo utirubor of strangers coming
hero and acquaint themselves with
Norfolk's situation and advantages,
after it has been so thoroughly ad
ti?-od by the press, if some of our
influential citizens would inaugurate
a movement to havo a rendezvous of
steam and sailing yaolitl ami races
iu Hampton ltuads, for a period of
two weeks in July next, it would,no
doubt, prove a great stiecoss. Nor
folk's public spirited citizens would
subscribe liberally to this movement
n d the press of the entire country
would give it aid nnd o leonrasrn
ment. Every owner of a tine yacht
aud every racing crew of any note
iu the United .-.taics und Europe
should bo invited tu taue putt. Alter
the plans are formulated thu pro I
gramme of the sport sh nld lie ex?
tensively advertised. Inducemen a
of this character would briug thous
ahde ol strangers to Norfolk, who
would spoud u large amount of
money in the city, uud it would cer?
tainly niako tue tunes hotter. It is
certainly very important at this
particular epoch of Nortolk'ahistory.
which has heon so much written
about throughout tho oouutry. that
wo should exert ourselves to the/
uttermost to push tho city ahead.
Tho Naval lleudezvous two years
ago did Norfolk a vast auiouut of
good. Tho writer of this comuiuni
eatiou was in Goluinbus, Ohio, in
April lust,uud while conversing with
uu OhiottU iu that oily 1 montioued
the fact that I was from Norfolk.
11 o said: "Sir, you uro from tho
livest city of ittiisi/.e that 1 have over
visited, auil 1 have been all over tho
Union." Ooutinuiug, ho said: "I
was iu your city during tho Naval
Ltendezvous, uud tho trudo parade- 1
witnessed thoro was the boHt uiTuir
of tho kind 1 ever saw, aud it would
have beou a credit to a city of u
quarter of a milliou of inhabitants."
The display made by M. Umstadtor

could be miUKiucd, aud the display
uiudo by tho Wroiiu druthers of

City, if wo would have our popula?

your to advance the material iuter
ost of Norfolk, uud every ell'ort
which has that purpose iu view
should be met with n hearty tu
eonragemont, I have understood
that the BiitiiucsH Men's Association
are cous deriug the buildiug of a
factory for tlio luanufactuilug of
cotton goods, if cuah of tho Lam?
bert Point companies were to
build a factory ou their property,

would he tho lueiuiu of disposing of
their building lots, and that
section, whicb is adapted lor facto
rics, would take an impetus iu build
mg generally, Berkley, after uu
neiation, would uh-o bo a desirable
seel ion lor tho location of fuctortes.
Lot me suppose, for lustaucc, that it
was ii fact, that four or tivo factories
were to bo erected iu Norfolk, the
work on ull of them to be commenced
in tlio spring, what would bo tbo
result? After titih uews wont abroad
it would oo Baid that the Norfolk
peoplo have faith iu the develop
meut of their city, und this fact
would bo encouragement for others
to como bore uud build factories
also, und instead of four or live fac?
tories being started there would
likely bo eight or leu of them. Nor

re Now Doing!
TELLING PRICES and SELLING PRICES
in every department, without considering LOSS, is
our maxim now. We are determined to force down
our Winter Stock lo a minimum before making our
annual inventory, and have concluded to clean out
every Heavy Weight Garment in the house "AT A
PRICE." Mark you, we mean just what we say?AT
A TRICE?and here is a chance that rarely presents
itself, and never were such llii>h Grade Clothing of?
fered on sale at such Extremely Low Prices.
Here are suits for Men, Youths' and Boys; suits in
exquisitely style, suits of this season's make; suits made
up by our own experienevd tailors (and not better
workmen than ours can be found) cut by our own
first-class cutters, (and no better nor more Perfect Fit?
ting Garment can be produced) from the very finest
Foreign and Domestic Cloths, Cassimeres, Worsteds,
Tricots, Diagonals, Cheviots, in fancy effects for young
men and solid mixtures for older ones of quieter tastes.
Suits that no man nor bov need be ashamed to wear,
no matter what his rank or station; Suits that have
sohl ficely (when sizes were in better condition) at
$2.50,?5, $7.50 and some $10 more than we are now
charging for them are included in this GREAT
UNDER VALUE SALE of Winter Weight Wear?
ing Apparel, to make them move as quickly as possi?
ble, in order to reduce this enormous stock as rapidly
as the emergency demands.
These are Suits which are selling so fast, these are
Suits that catch men of sense who know how to save
money, these arc Suits which arc talked so much
about, and these are Suits no man who contemplates
purchasing can afford to miss, and as we've said before,
the sooner he comes the Detter he'll fare, for we in?
tend to clean 'em out, without reserve, to avoid carry?
ing anything like a surplus stock over until next
season. THIS IS WHAT WE ARE NOW DOING.
Here are Overcoats of Our Own Superior Make,
and everybody knows, or could know, if they woula
investigate the fact, that we manufacture as line Over?
coats for young men and gentlemen, as can be seen
anywhere in the Union. Here are English Top Coats
in Meltons, Kerseys, Cheviots and many other sub?
stantial weaves. Here are Sack Overcoats in Wors?
teds, Beavers, Tricots aud Chinchillas, in many shades
and colors, with Silk Sleeves, together with Cassimere,
Serge, Italian, Satin and Silk Trimmings. Here are
Storm Coats and New Markets of the Very Best
Fabrics that money can procure. Here they are and
here they go, at prices which must clean them out.
without reserve, before the close ol the season. THIS
IS WHAT WE ARE NOW DOING.

If you are selling more than you can make,
If times are too good to keep up with,
You might consider the question of stopping your ad?

When people arc looking for bargains,
When people are hard to please,
When only the "fittest" can survive,
When times arc what they arc to-day.
