Sharks and Sharks.
This is a noto from tho Chnrlottosvillo
Progress:
Adolph Micholson, who failed soinu timo
ago in Norfolk for {76,000, presented an
itemized statement before tho rofreo In
bankruptcy which showed that ho had
paid out in usunry and actual living: ex?
penses in tho last throe years tho largo
?uni of 173,000, and his living expenses dur?
ing that timo wore only $12,0(10. If true,
this shows that sea sharks are not tho
only kind to be found around Norfolk.
Good for }|onesviJle.
The Southwest 'Virginian has this en?
couraging editorial:
The people of Jonesvillo and Imm?diate
vicinity subscribed something over $2.000
to Jonesvillo Instituto inst Sunday, and
this after having poli] $3,tJ00 to the sumo
iund within the past two yours. This la
evidence of the liberality and progressive?
nest for which the people of this section
have always boon noted. Our people aro
determined that wo shall have a school
which offers advantages second to none In
Southwest Virginia, und this section has
schools of which tho people have no cause
to be ashamed.
The Dog Law.
The Now Castle Record says:
While there Is a Btate dog low, tho
?people of tills county have never received
any of. the benefits to accruo from Us
operation. Wo have had occasion to spook
to the proper authorities and have been
Informed tliat the necessary blanks and
'Information have never hoen furnished,
This may bo duo to mi oversight, but It
eeotiiK to us It i-oiilil bo and should be rem?
edied In timo to give the county the rev?
enue to be derived frinii what we would
consider u proUlla source. The fund to
lie derived from the nog tax lu a county
affair entirely?the State getting no part
of the revenue? and the law provides that
mich fund shall bu rit the disposition of
tho Hoard of Supervisors, who are to pay
for nil losses of sheep or stock by dons,
nnd the remainder. If any. to mo to tho free
schools. This, we tliiak nerves a double
good purpose?first to rid the county <>f
a lot of worthless curs, which wo need
less than anything else, anil to ereato a
iund for the public schools?something
that wo need moro of than anything clso.

plans to form a line of steamers to con?
nect the Northern Neck with tho Now
York and Philadelphia Railroad at Crls
fleld, Md., are rapidly maturing, mid
it is sold that steamers will bo running
on this routo by the middle ot Juno. Tho
round trip will be mode In less than
twenty-four hours, so now freight will go
direct from ilia Northern Neck to tho
northern and eastern markets.
The samo company will operate steam?
boats botween Crisllcld, Md., and l"r
banna, on tlia Rnppnhahnock ltlvor, und
connect with Fredorlcksburg. This will
odd greatly to the business Interests along
tho Rnppnhannock. These iyw linos will
connect the eastern mid western shores,
which have always boon separated by the
Chesapeake Hay, so that commercial re?
lations heretofore have been Impossible.
CONNECTIONS.
The new line to bo established on the
Potomnc will connect nt C'unntlco for
southern points, ?mil ut Hope's Creek;
Md., for tho northern. Tills will shorten
time nnd put tho people In touch with
northern markets, so that fruit, truck
nnd other freight can be handled much
better thnn over before. These new linos
of stenmors will grontly ndd to tho value
of land lying along tho shores of the
Potomnc and Happahannock Hivers. Tim
Northern Nock has for years been en?
tirely dependant on Baltimore os a mar?
ket for Its produoo, nnd In spite of this
hns already become noted for Its trucking
industry. There Is no reason why, with
these now lines, which give advantages
of the groat eastern nnd northern mar?
kets, that the .Northern Neck cannot be
made nno of the finest trucking and fish?
ing sections of Virginia. It is with u
great deal of Interest and enthusiasm)
that our penplo welcome tho comng of
these now linos of steamers, which prom?
ises to ndd so much to the business In?
terests and wealth of tho Northern Nock.

THE OLDEST AMD BEST
THE GREATEST OF ALL TONICS.
A Spring Medicine that adds vigor and strength to the system,
purifies and enriches the Blood, and lays the foundation for a
strong constitution and good health during the hot sultry summer.
Most everybody feels bad in the spring. Some have no particular ailment hut arc just
tired, worn out and totally unfit for work or anything else that requires energy or effort.
They mope around upon the border-laud of invalidism, irritable, peevish, hysterical and
Unreasonable,
A good appetite in the spring is a rarity, and we sicken at the sight of food, or thought
of eating, and what little we do eat is a burden to the stomach and a tax upon the digestion.
Warm weather is sure to bring out the hidden poisons, germs and seeds of disease that
have been collecting in the blood and system dur?
ing winter, and you may look for some old chronic
trouble to make its appearance. It is a time, too,
when boils and carbuncles, and pustular or scaly
skin eruptions like eczema and tetter, pay their
annual visits and make life miserable by their
intense pains and intolerable itching aud burning.
The fight for health should begin before any
warning symptoms of physical collapse are felt, or
before the seeds of disease have time to germinate
if we would avoid the usual spring sickness ; and
with S. ?S. S., the acknowledged king of blood
purifiers and greatest of all tonics, you can put
your blood and system in such perfect condition
and so strengthen the constitution that one may be as free from sickness and as vigorous and
strong during the trying months of spring and depressing summer season as at any other time.
S. S. S. not only builds you up, but searches jaut and destroys any poisonous genus or
impurities that may be lurking in the blood. The benefits derived from the use of S. S. S.
are permanent because it acts directly ou the blood aud purifies and cleanses it of all impure
matter, leaving nothing to cause fermeutatiou and deterioration of this life-giving fluid.
Iu selecting your blood purifier and spring tonic get one that long experience and thor?
ough test have proven the best. In S. S. S. you will find a remedy whose purifying proper?
ties are unquestionable, and just such a tonic as your system needs. Ask your druggist for
S. S. S.?there is nothing else just as good.
For the past 40 years we have had a standing oiler of $1,000 for proof that S. S. S. con?
tains the least particle of any mineral whatever, and this offer is still open.
