Thomas Reynolds, former local
Are department Instructor, merely
emphasized his troubles and caused
them to receive witler and more de
tailed publicity, by his indiscreet act
of coming iback to Olarkebuig to do
fend himself through a newspaper.
Reynolds found this place one ot but
little sympathy >for him and he soon
put the city behind him.
Riley Wilson in Vaudeville.
'Riley Wilson, of Charleston, we'.!
known here, is to enter vaudevilie.
There is no one who dou'bts the
geniusofiRJileyb'iifi it issuggested that
"chestnut" will not get by on the
stage. But It ought to be easy for
-Riley to see his fault and correct
it. The (Huntington Herald-iDlspatch
links his name with those of Bryan
and ?r. Cook as follows, which may
or may not be an honor:
Riley Wilson, emulating William
Jenning Bryan and the illustrious
MDoc" Cook, almost discoverer ot
the North Pole, is about to enter
vaudeville. Indeed, it ia already an
nounced that IRlley is to appear on
the same bill with "Doc" at the
Plaza theater in Charleston on a
near at hand date. The alignment
of these three names suggests reasons
why men caii successfully mount the
vaudeville stage. Tame, as is the
case with Bryan, notoriety, as is the
case with Cook, and genius, which is
the particular jewel that will glitter
in the case of the irrepressible and
imperturbable Riley. The Charles
ton prodigy, already -
a matinee idol, will, no doubt, taover
hlmseif with glory and aroundant
riches in a calling which seema to
afford a natural outlet for his ?e
cullar genius
Careless Consumptives.
Every two and three-quarters mo
ments some one dies from tuberculo
sis.
Closed bedroom windows mean a
nail In your coffin. Six IncheB Is not
an open window.
Nature cures tuberculosis. Patent
med.clne gets the credit.
In the 120 years since 1793 there
have been 100,500 deaths from yellow
fever. In one year there have been
160,000 deaths from tuberculosis.
There are 5,000 tuberculosis germs
in one fly speck. Filth breeds fllefl.
?Poverty makes tuberculosis: tuber
culosis makes poverty.
Advancedi cases of tuberculosis
are neglected cases.
The death rate in the four years of
the Civil war was 203,700 from in ac
tion and wounds received in action;
the death rate in four years is 640,000
from tuberculosis.
The careless consumptive is the
only one to be feared.
T.rae to Be Introduced.
"Advertise West Virginia." This
has become a motto in this state.
The spirit extends to the state gov
ernment itself and was exemplified
during preparations for the semi
centennial last summer and contin
ued during the three days of the
celebration.
Every purchase made in other
states and every sale made to con
cerns or individuals in other states
advertise West Virginia. Every in
terstate transaction advertises this ?
state and such advertisement brings
results. What West Virginia has and
what West Virginia makes aro made
known. It is also true that what
West Virginia wants and must havo
are also made known.
A quarter of a century ago or pos
sibly not so far back as that the
country at large knew but little ot
West Virginia except as a wild,
monntain slate and the eye of de
rision rather than admiration was
turned upon it. Suddenly West Vir
ginia determined to get into the
Umellght and (through systematic ef
forts its products sent to the big
centers attracted attention to the
state and Its magnUicent develop
ment began In earnest. Advertising
through trade transactions started
this great development, font while
the ?Ut8 and it* resource# and prod-t
nets ate well known in many\??<?l
lions, yet' mrmerous otfier' aectloaiJ
only know Went Virginia a*' St la
presented In the books and newspa
per#.
Beyond the Rocky mountains
there is but little, if any, conception
ol what West Virginia Is. The Pa
cific coast In particular has only a
faint idea of West Virginia natural
resources and manufactured prod
ucts. It certainly does seem that an
Introduction at the earliest date pos
sible would prove beneficial to West
Virginia. The coast has a market
for many of the products at tils
state and the opening of- the Panama
canal will give IWest Virginia splen
did opportunity to enter that mallket.
Ab the canal is soon to be opened,
the Telegram believes that an ac
quaintanceship should be formed
simultaneously "with the opening
of the canal, and the best way to
bring that about -will be for the state
to officially represent itself at the
big exposition to be held In San
Francisco. West Virginia can best
do this toy having a West Virginia
building and space for West Vir
ginia exhibits.
There 1b every reason to believe
that West "Virginia producers and
manufacturers are eager to make ex
hibits at the big exposition with the
knowledge that it will be of great
benefit to iwest Virginia, ibut grava
fear exists that they will not
exhibitions unless the state takes of
ficial cognizance of the exposition b>
.being officially represented. It
would be humiliating to (West (Vir
ginia exhibitors to toe unable to show
visltora to - West Virginia head
Quarters. _
On this subject the Wheeling In
tclligencer takes, the following po
sition, which Is fully agreed to &J
the Telegram: * ..
'] In this connection It ought !bt
1 proper to inuulre what Is being done
' t to secure a representation of West
Virginia's industries at the great ex
- position. With the completion o
tho Panama canal. West Virginia
will bavo >a direct line of water com
munication to the Pacific coast. (West
Virginia coal. West Virginia tit
plate, West Virginia glass, iron and
steel can be shipped by-water to the
porls of the Pacific. This is a fact o.l
i no small importance. The .Pacific
(coast market may mean much to u*
IThere are few states in the union
1 that have as much to sell to the Pa
' ciflc coast as West Virginia has and
? there are few steps that W"1 'be
brought in closer touch with the Pa
le iflc coast than West Virginia wll
'i,be. iWe want -to bo represented at
San Francisco, and our represents

Nov. 1, 1912.?'*At first little red spots
were seen on my arms and body, which I
noticed were getting .larger every day..
They itched me so much that I scratched
?myself until I bled. There were times
when I stood up all nigfct and scratched. I
was troubled" about .three weeks, during
which time I Used''-?*?, which seemed to
do me no good whatever. Then, finally,
I thought of trying Resinol Soap and
Resinol Ointment. As soon as I applied
Resinol Ointment I foit much relief. After
using it a few times, I noticed the sore
