The School Board has elected teach? ers In the public schools for the ses? sion of l4l2-1913. Very few changes are made In the present corps?white ami colored. George F. Bennett, prln ? lpai of the R. ES. Lee School, declined re,-electlon. Intending to remove t<> Richmond. Mies Maud Flobbs was < lected principal of the Ix-e School to succeed Mr. Bennett, and Miss Agnes st..k. n was elected teacher In the High School to nil the vacancy caused by the transfer ot Miss Ilobbs. Miss Ralllc Robertson, n teacher of many :.<;.is' experience, was re-elected, and granted leave or absence for the >car to recuperate her health. During her absence her nephew, Mr. McManaway, will teach In her place. Miss Charlotte Tomlln was elected a substitute, and Used New Tonic As a Last Resort! And Found a Speedy Relief For] Physical Distresses?Statement of Charles Klenseen Mr. Charles Klenseen, of Williamsburg Avenue, city, made the following state? ment rerently in connection with "Tona Vita," the remarkable new tonic that is now being introduced in Richmond. "For some time I had been utterly mis? erable with stomach trouble. After eating I suffered extreme discomfort and had gaa form to surh an extent that I was constantly belching. I wa- nervous and much run down. I tried 'Tona Vita' as a last rcse,rt. and am pleased to say that [ it cave me great relief, and continued doing so until I am now cured. I have no niedre gastric fermentation, and I eat any? thing I please. My nervousness has left me. and I have gained a great deal in' weight. It is a pleasure to recommend I -ui h a wonderful remedy as 'Tona Vita.' " Such a ststcment as the foregoing should prove of unusual interest to those suffering with similar troubles. The spe? cialists who are introducing "Tona Vita" state that members of any family in Richmond arc likely to be found suffering with the same nervous, debilitated con? dition of the body, as it is an all tor, com? mon complaint in the large towns, where nature".-, law- arc apt to be disregarded. "All of this nervous, debilitated trou? ble." raid one of the specialists, "is due principally to imperfect digestion, which i- siiperineluced by the strain of modern city life. There is too much hastily eaten food. "Most people, however, arc not seri? ously affected by imperfect iligestion," continued he. "They arc just loggy and nervous and easily tired. They feel 'worn out' after a little exertion, and are moody and depressed. These are sure symptoms of an overworked stomach that needs ton? ing up and regulating. 'Tona Vita' will positively accomplish this, toning up and restoring the organs to their healthy, nor? mal condition. Our preparation must prove satisfactory or wc will not take the money for it." Enthusiasm continues to prevail gen? erally where the ne^v product called "Tona Vila ' has been used. The great amount of good which seems to have been accom? plished is the cause of considerable com? ment by those who have seen its wonder? ful work. Case after case of persons who were comparatively nervous wrecks and had been sufferers frtim stomach trouble for years has been reported, and the re? sults of "Tona Vita" are said to have been astonishing in nearly every instance. The " Tuna Vita" specialists will be at the Polk Miller Drug Company, Xo. S.54 East Main Street, between the hours of 9 A. M. to S P. M. daily to meet the public and explain ihe nature of that modern plague, nervous debility, and demonstrate the value of their remark? able rcniedv.

PROTESTANT NAMED CHAPLAIN TO COURT Until Present Reign French and Not Dutch Was Court Language. BY I.A MAltai l*K UK PONTTXOY. QgtSEN WIMIKI.MIXA ., actlor in appointing t< 11 .lavs since I the French Protestun pastor; Uov. M K. Lacheret. us Kreuch chaplain to her coiirt, sorvcs to recall the fact thai until the present reign ! French, and not Dutch, was the court i language In the Netherlands Whenever the late Kins William III . I his nisi Queen and his two sons (who predeceased him) intended church, ser? vice was always celebrated in French,] by a court chaplain, usually a nalivu of Prance or French Swltserland. But, on the death of William III. his widow. ih. . Regent Queen Kjima. his second wife, tmiugii bred a Lutho.an, not: only caused Wllhelin'na to bo in- ] miu ted i>y Dutch clergymen, but her? self attended Divine service in the; popular tongue with the Htt?o Queen French also, at her instance, was dt?-' cttiui-u as a court language. Too resi? dent Kreuch court chaplain was, how? ever, retained in ofllce as a permanent member of the royal household, neitherI the regent nor her daugntor Wishing to let the spiritual adviser of the latu King depart. When this pastor died tho other day. tho question arose whether it would not be well to abolish the oftlcj, b? Ui the Uowagtr Queen and tho Prince Consort being in favor of so doing; ion ?ja... i. w ilhelmina thought other? wise. She could not torget tne Kreuch origin of the House of Oraiig-.', n*?r ii, tact that the Walloons formerly were subjects of. the- Dutch crown, i fall sized Walloon population still ex? isting in the country to-day. Accord? ingly she refused to do away with the ofllce, but has, however, placed it on a new basis. The Rev. M. 13. Lachorot, who has for twenty yearn pest been one of tho leading Protestant clergymen in Paris, is to retain his Parisian home and charge, but will recelvo tho title of chaplain to the Dutch court, and 9VI be summoned from time to time, as his services aro desired. Her decision in the matter is extremely popular at The Hague, where Pastor Lacncrti spent the lirsi lifteen years of his min? isterial life. In charge of the Wall ion church, and throughout the country. According to authentic reports from an eminent Berlin physician summoned by the Sultan to huloulco to examine into the condition of his elder brother and predecessor on the tlirouc, Abdul Hamid, who was us thin as a reed be? fore Iiis deposition, has now become not merely fat, but extremely obese, owing ui his sedentary harms. At the time when tho Berlin special? ist saw him, more than Tour months had elapsed since he "ad emitted his apartments o: set foot in the exten? sive grounds?a very beautiful park? surrounding the Villa Latlni, where he has been connned since his overthrow. Two regular medical men, surgeons of the Turkish army, who have re? ceived their medical training in Ger? many and Austria respectively, are in dally attendance upon him, and their l ask is no easy one, as tho utmost tact, forbearance and patience are re? quired of them, and the suspicion of the patient frequently necessitates their taking doses of their own medicine in lila presence. Sometimes lie solects ono of his body servants, by preference his chief valet, for the preliminary taste. Not Ions; agu a mixiur? containing quinine was prescribed. A trial dose was duly ad? ministered to tho secona valet. New to tlie duty, he, finding It very bitter, made a frightful face, whereat Abdul seized the bottle and dumped out the I contents. On the same day he sent to ! inquire whether the valet was still alive, and great was his astonishment when the. man presented nimself, cheer? ful, hearty and none tho worse. The ex-Sultan Is equally exacting as to his food. The ordeal of tasting is ex? clusively reserved for the chief cook. The dethroned Padishah has a marked fondness for pilaff, a oertaln Turkish dish prepared with rlco and finely > hopped meat. When a. dish is brought to the ex-Sultan's table, the eim r cook accompanies it and stands at attention like a soldier awaiting orders. Abdul, armed with a large spoon, will hover indecisively over the dish for a second or two. Then, hav? ing selected thu point of attack, lie will plunge the spoon into the heart of the steaming hot mass, and, with? drawing it tilled, liand tne spoon to the cjok. If that functionary should evince the least hesitation in sampling the contents, the dish is at once re? jected by tho suspicious Abdul. Sir Bryan Lelghton, who has come into prominence these days, owing to his invention of a chute-like contriv? ance for launching life-noats from the lofty de-ks of ocean liners, Is the only (Englishman of title who has served under the American Hag In recent years, having enlisted as a volunteer at the outbreak of the war with Spain, lie served In the ranks from the be? ginning of the conflict right through to the end and made many friends. Two years later he was engaged in the South African war. fighting for his own country, as an officer of tho Imperial Light Horse, commanded by Colonel ChlBholmo. When peace was i restored, he sought further excitement I in Mexico, hunting the -wild sheep. , These proved to be more formidable ' than either the Spaniards or the Boers, In his case. For lie fell und smashed his knee-cap while stalking that shy I and active American counterpart of ihe chamois, Being thus Incapacitated, for a time at least, from active moun? taineering, he went back home to his beautiful country place, in Shropshire, known as Loton Park, which has been in his family for a couple of centuries, the entire estate comprising about 5, 00" acres. Here he Is s county magnate, a justice of the peace, ?> a m^jor of Yeomanry. He is the ninth baronet of his line, the title having been con? ferred by William III.. In recognition of the part which Edward L'tighton played in bringing about the succession of William of Orange to the throne of Kligland. ' AppropOs of Sir Bryan's invention, it will be remembered that a prize of i<ir,,.,,,,j francs was offered by tho heirs of the late Anthony Pollock, who wont down in tho wreck of the Bourgogoe ? ; Helps on Care of the Hair and Skin The suotlo charm and elegance so I noticeable in ibrillia.nt. fluffy hnir is possible .for every woman to have and .enjoy if slila will but shampoo occa? sionally -with a canthrox mixture, iiado , by dissolving a tea spoonful of can :.ihro\ in a cup of hot watar.
