Tho local political situation is grow?

Samuel W. Zimmer, the present repre?
sentative from Petersburg in the House
of Delegates, announced himself a can?
didate for the State Senate from this

Accident to n Trnln.
The north-bound mail and passenger
train, No. SO, on the Atlantic Const
Dine Railroad, due at 7 o'clock P. M.,
met with an accident last evening near
, the Apponmttox Station, which, though
; not sorious, caused much inconvenience.
! In passing the crossing at River and
Third Streets, owing, us is thought, to
a defective switch, the engine, tender
and mall car were partially derailed.
! The train was fortunately moving very
slow at tho time, else other cam might
have been derailed. It required all
night to get the engine and tender pack
on tlte track. Neither was Injured.
The passenger and other cars were
taken back to the Washington Street
Station and thence to Richmond via
the belt line route, and that route was
used for other trains ROing South and
North. The track was all clear and
in order early this morning.
North-hound trains Nos. S2 and St>.

at A and 1:2S A. M.. did not reach the

Sometimes Three Fingers Withoul
Nails at One Time, Began 25
Years Ago. No Permanent Cure.
Began to Use Cuticura Soap and
Ointment. In a Short Time Nails
Were Well. No Further Trouble.
"I hare suffered from the same trouble
{painful finger nails] et different periods of
my life. The first time of its occurrence,
perhaps twenty-five years ago, after trying !
home remedies without getting helped. I I
asked my doctor to prescribe for me, but It
was not for a year or more that my nalJs
and fingers were well. The inflammation and
suppuration began at the bate of the finger
nail. Sometimes it v/as so painful t' at I
had to use a poultice to induce suppuration. !
After the pus was discharged tho swelling
would go down until the next period of
Inflammation, possibly not more than a week
or two afterwards. These frequent inflam?
mations resulted In the losa of the nail. I
had sometimes as many as three fingers in
this ?t?te at one time.
"Perhaps ten years later, I began again
to suffer from tlte same trouble. Again I
tried various remedies, among them a pre?
scription from a doctor of a friend of mine,
who had suffered from a like trouble. This
seemed to help somewhat for a time, but it
was no: a permanent cure, next tried a pre?
scription from my own doctor, but thLs was
60 irritating to the sensitive, diseased skin
th&t I could not use. it. I began to use Cuti?
cura Soap and Ointment. 1 had used the
Cuticura Ointment previously on my chil- j
drett's scalps with good effect. 1 did not use ;
the Soap exclusivery. but I rubbed the Cuti?
cura Ointment into the base of the nail every
night thoroughly, and as often beside as I
could. I had not used It hut a few weeks
before my nails were hotter, and in a short
time they were apparently well. There was
no more suppuration, nor inflammation, the.
nails grew out clean again. One box of Cuti?
cura Ointment was all that I used in effecting
a cure." (Signed) Mrs. I. J. Horton, Kato

Horton wrote: " I have, had no further return
of the trouble with my finger nails."

Justice Alex Stronach in the Raleigh
Municipal Court, where Attorney-Gen?

trust law enacted two years ago. Tho

The Justice holds that the prosecu?
tion failed to show that the cuts in
prices of oil were to drive out compe?
tition, rather than on account of an
Increase of supply that brought lower
prices tho country over.
In concluding his ruling, which is
quite lengthy, Justice Stronach says:
?'As to the statute, while this prosecu?
tion seems to show that Its substantial
provisions are ample to remedy the
evil aimed at by the special sections
under which this warrant was drawn,
it also emphasizes ihe necessity for
some more adequate provision for ob?
taining the necessary evidence."

imously approved by the joint commit?

Representative Marshall, of Surry
county, several days ago Introduced
a bill to provide free text books for
public school children. He is a Re?
publican, and his hill is in line with
one of the planks of his party, which
tho Democrats allege they are not es?
pousing in good faith, but for political
purposes. Tho House Committee on
Education has just given him a hear?
ing on his bill, and he made an es?
pecially earnest appeal for his meas?
ure to be reported favorably, using
the conditions which 1 he says exist
in his own county as a special text.
The committee gave him a complete
surprise by deciding to report his hill
favorably; but limiting its application
to S?rry county only, and prescribing
that the money for the school books
shall not. come out of the school funds
of the county, but out of the general
county fund. Representative Marshall
has not indicated just what attitude he
will assume in the House when his
bill comes up as amended with favor?
able report from the committee. The
indications are that the House will
pass the bill, and that Its ultimate fate
will rest with the Senator from Surry
In the upper branch of the Assem- !
Hearing on Rulckel BUI.

ty of a misdemeanor for violating the
