Excellent Openings Are Presented For Entering the Service and Demand For the Right Kind of Men is Greater Than Ever. Since the Spanish-American War fijMy 200 soldiers have been commissioned 2nd lieutenant* ra the infantry, cavalry and artillery; for after the cadets at West Point are provided for in the -way of commissions, the next preference is giv en to soldiers who have served two year-* or more atxi can pass the required exam inations. Many of the mowt prominent and able officers of the army have so earned their shoulder straps. The pre sent chief of wtatT, lieutenant General Adna R. Chaffee, was a private in Troop K, Oth U. S. Cdvalry, on July 22, 1801. and has fought his way to the head of the army in 43 years of strenuous service on the Western plains, in Cuba, China and the Philippines. Under a recent or der from the War department, Washing ton, D. C., a good opportunity is made for a master electrician, paying $75.00 per month, and for an electrician Ser geant in the name branch at $46.00 per month, which requires less technical knowledge. This class of men is needed in the coast artillery <fco look after the large guns mounted to protect the At lantic coast. The demand for all men has never been greater, ana the opportunities for black smiths, harnessmakers or farriers in the cavalry; for a mechanic in the artillery, of for car pernios in the infantry, and teamsters in all branches are splendid. The cavalry regiments in and around St. Louis give a man a chance to see the WorldVi Pair, and several infantry regi ments now in line for service in the Phil ippines make a journey to the far eawt possible, doubly desirable now that war is imminent between Japan and Rusia.

MYSTERY Surrounds Findings of a Newly Dug Grave in the Forest Near Wellsburg. Wetlsburg, W. Ya., Feb. 11?A deep grave, unfilled and lately dug, was dis covered in the woods near this town the other night. All manner of speculation as to the purpose for which it was in tended has been rife. There was discov ered a hat. It is the general theory that the hole was dug bv parties in search of buried treasure. Tendency of the Times. The tendency of medical science is to ward preventative meastires. The best thought of the world is -being given to the subject. It is easier and better to prevent than to cure. It has been fully demonstrated that pneumonia, one of the most dangerous diseases that medical men have to oontend with, can be pre vented by the use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Pneumonia always re sults from a cold or Iron an attack of influeciza (grip), ami it has been observ ed that this remedy counteracts any ten dency of these diseases knvnrd pneumon ia. This has been fuHv proven in many thousands of cases in which this remedy has been used during the great prevail unce of colds and grip in recent years, and can be relied upon with implicit con fidence. Pnemnonia often results from a slight cold when no danger is apprehend ed until it is suddenly discovered that there is fever and difficulty in breathing urd pains in -the chest, then it is an nounced that the patient has pneumonia. Be on the safe side and take Chamber lain's Cough Remedy as soon as the cold is contracted. It always cures. For sale by G. C. Stone, druggist. OLDEST Steam Locomotive Engine in the United States is Owned by the Cumber land Valley Railroad. The Cumberland Valley Railroad Com pany is toe owner of the oldest steam locomotive engine in the United States, the "Pioneer." -It was built in 18M, more than half a century ago. The company is having the engine, which is a mere pigmy alongside those now in use on the road, painted up to be sent to the J^t. Louis Exposition as a reminder of bygone days in railroading. It is a pitv that the Baltimore & Ohio had not pre served one of their "grasshoppers" which anteuated the "Pioneer*' by a pood manv years. A Mother's Recommendation.
