Tho writer saw to-day a now inven? tion which, when Introduced, cannot help but revolutionise the methods of beating cook and other stoves, it is tin; Champion oil Burner, exhibited by David Barnhlsel, for tho Cleveland Company, and what it will do is sur ptising. Tile principle of this burner is that common coal oil is converted into gas; tho oil is placed In a largo can. which may be stationed a dozen or a hundred feet away from the stove. The oil is carried through a small rolled pipe to tin- burners, which are first heated, and then as fast as the oil (lows it is converted into gas, which mixes with 90 per cent, air and 10 per cent, cub >n oil gas, passing through Iii? burner and produc ing a long blue llume of intense heat, free from smoke nnd odor. The combustion being per? fect, there is no waste of fuel. When wo add to this that there is no dan? ger, it is Impossible not to feel, as we see th-- intense flames circling around the title, with the power to hold so many pots, that the cooking and heat? ing question has been dealt with in a masterful and successful manner. Mr. Barnhlsel Is located in Sanl t's building on Bank street, for a few days, where ho will be glad to exhibit tho Invention to anyone. It may be put in any stove without changing or dam* I aging the latter in the e ast, and after it is in. will heat the largest size cook stove or range for three-t|iinrters of a cent per hour. The company is soon to put the burners in the hands of agents, who will retail them at about $1" apiece. To get them started in this vi? i Inity, one may buy direct of the man? ufacturers free on board cars at Cleve? land for half that sum for the next few days, or until an agent is appointed. Whether one wishes to buy or not, it is I worth one's while to vis;: tho store tu ' sv.0 this ingenious article. mh21-lt I Interesting Anniversary Ex? ercises Held Sunday. REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT An Earnest ami 1'rnclletil .? ml rr? l>> ReT. it. ii. Bennett- wimt This Lending C'linrllJ Has Accouipllkb? ed?Kiailstlea iviiicti Reveal n* Able Management ? IN h n lliO| Home .Nn iH to Enlarge its Work*. March 15th, ' six years ago, the Woman's Christian Temperance Union of Norfolk began its work of uplifting the fallen, in the home known at Iii. t as the whit- Ribbon Anchorage. Col. Charles Crltlonton, to whom nttetition the needs of this refuge was called, offered fl.flO'J to aid in purchasing a house, provided it was named in memory of his daughter, Florence Crlttenton. The result is the Florence Crlttenton Home at No. -?:! Chupelj I street. The ladies struggled on and on, after purchasing the property, in tlm extremely difficult work of lifting1 the debt from it. and finally succeeded. They have since purchased a piano, and are from time to time depositing n lit? tle money In bnnk to build or purchase additional room. Therefore, the anniversary services j held at Christian Memorial Temple Sunday afternoon may appropriately be termed a thanksgiving serv.ee. Rev. R. li. Bennett, of McKendrcc M. E. church, delivered a most Interesting ami instructive address, in which be reviewed the past work of the home, the plans of its promoters ami conduc? tors, and earnestly appealed for the support they had a claim on the com? munity for. it was a masterly address and moved his hearers to new resolves I ami determination in carrying forward i one of tip grandest charities in out city. WHAT MAS BEEN DONE. The following summary of reports will give our readers an idea of what the Florence Crlttenton Homo hag ac? complished and hopes to do in the future: Tie- annual report of Mrs. R. II. Jones, the president, with whom the work is a labor of love, is an Instruc? tive document. From It Is learned that more room is needed at the home. The work Increases annually und the insti? tution is crowded. The Kills recalled and reclaimed e sent out to good homes us rapidly as practicable, yet with the large number of children cared for, and only seven Bleeping rooms for an average of fifteen girls and twelve children, it will be seen that more room is not only needed, but actually essen? tial. There are only thirteen rooms in the building?one is used for a parlor. ?>ne by the matron, a kitchen, dining room, wood ami coal room anil a bath room?leaving but a siimll number for tile large number of people under the roof. STATISTICS. During tin past year there have been ndmitted to the home 41 ^ir'.s, 111 chil? dren and there were S births- Twelve of these children have been adopted or provided for. 7 mothers have secured h imes with their children, girls have secured places to work. ."> sent home b their friends, 3 have married, 2 were sent to the hospital as confirmed in? valids, l was transferred to tin- home in Atlanta. I little- blind boy was placed in the Home for in. arables at Rich? mond by request of the Masons. Thro infants died during Hie year. Only two girls have returned to a sin? ful life. The home has had constant calls for girls in various -positions that cannot be supplied, and many applications from persons desirous of adopting chil? dren bad to be denied. NONE TURNED A WAV. ' Mis. Jones in her report says: i im doors are always open to the homeless and friendless, and though we arc crowded to ih.- utmost the way soon opens for work of adults or for adoption for the children. * * The two g.rls that left us did so surreptitiously, and we feel in each case that our whole duty was discharged, as we had dealt patiently and long with each of them. Mrs. Jones pays n splendid tribute to the matron of the h-one. She is patient and thoroughly consecrated to God and this line of Christian work, and her In? fluence with the girls for good is as wonderful as it is gratifying. THE HOMES NEEDS. Mrs. Jones further says: Cod has been so good In supplying all nur needs. The money for some pressing need has always come, some times In the most tinlooked for manner. A gentleman, hearing Dr. Young at a song service recently give some history of some of our beautiful hymns, was so Impressed that he called on the Doctor and gave him smite money to lie used in resculiiK the fallen. And so il goes on. A little comes with a cheek for the home, friends send many things to help sup? ply its needs, provisions, wood, coal, clothing, etc., keep coming and enable us to feed and clothe our large family ? me gentleman in the country shipped us a car load of w.1. We contlnu to hold#ellgious services ? ?ii Sunday and Tlnffsduy afternoons, and go out in the streets for air and ??>:? reise. Wo are bending our energies to se ute some relief ere the summer comes upon us. Think of twenty-seven persons Bleeping in seven rooms, 14x14 t ? t square. And often it Is thirty, und it has been even forty for a short time. Mrs. Jon. s i loses her very interesting report with a most touching appeal to all who have never felt the sorrow in their home of a blasted lifo to give to led a thank offering that lie has spared them a great sorrow. Tin: MATRON'S REPORT. Accompanying the president's report is one from til- matron, who. In speak? ing of the girls for whom homes wer-' procured, says: And though we have bur trials ami crosses, we also have our joys. The blessed Christ is with us In our home to comfort and cheer, and the Holy Spirit's Influence is felt In all hearts, convicting some of sin and leading others to u clearer light, i receive many letters which shew that the i writers have procured the power of ? Christ to cleanse and.keep from sin. FINANCIAL REP< >RT. Following is the treasurer's report from March 1, 1S0S. to Mureh 1. 1S0O: To amount on hand last report.?

PAY Ol' POLICEMEN Proposed Increase Was Generally Discussed Yesterday. i no in hers ul Ilia Force arc Active In Strengthening: I licit- Claim lo Bei? tcr i'ny-Mcveu TIioIINIIIkI Hollars ?i\ 111 llnveiolte Provided. The article published in Sunday's Vir-1 glnian-Pllot, under the caption "Appro? priations Must i?ease," was very gener? ally discussed yesterday. The friends qf the Norfolk police will urge strongly that the members be pai l $2.r.o per day, even it' some of the streets 1'er which money has been appropriated to make improvements, have to wait. They contend that to give tho police? men the money asked will only requlri an additional appropriation for ih,.. po? lice department of about $7,000 annual? ly: that this money can easily be saved from funds which have been or will bi set aside to pave obscure streets in residential sections. BOUNDING Till'. FATHERS. ThOSO who indorse the action of the Select Council In raising the pay of policemen from S2.121& to 82.60 per diem were actively sounding ii< ? City Path ra yesterday and it is reported that a ma? jority of the members of the Common branch have signified their purpose to vote for the resolution when u comer up at the April meeting. The police fore, is a strong factor in politics, when it desires to exert Its influence. The police are net allowed to appear as partisans in political contest . but each Olie of them lias friends and all ih.- boards in creation can't control these votes, it is said, and ;.' their in lluerico is thrown solidly in any partic? ular direction its weight will lie felt: III nee all of the aspirants for office and ail the politicians ore strongly support? ing the measure: WILL COST ONLY $7,000. If the resolution is adopted by the Common Council the money will have to i... paid, if til,- city i rri i mid nn extra 87,000 for this purpose the money will have to be hoi row,>d and the Fi? nance Committee will haw- to find a lender. It will iie a pari of the run? ning expenses of the municipality,which will have to bo nu-t Iiis;, and the per? manent Improvements pr?vldi d for af? terwards. THE BATTLE GR( HJNDS. If the police are sufficiently strong to get their measure through the Common Council, they will lie certain to get their extra allowance begin early, on the 1st and 15th; tin- only question Is can they Influence this branch. it is claimed that there is justice in the appeal of :ho police for more money. An ofllci r of the f iree -aid yes? terday that it must be remi mbered, first, that tin- me,, cannot engage ii any .Uber business, and. secondly, that the money they receive will not sup? port them comfortably unless the olll cer is a single man. He claimed that a patrolman with four in family did not spend as much for food as tho State allows a jailer to lake care of prisoners. Said he: The State pays 2.'. cents a day. that would make the policeman's family coal him J7.0U per w.ek for food. His house will cost not less than arid fuel il mak? ing a total of ill. Clothing. (|i cl : f bills, medicines and books for children will have to come out of the $1.75 left per week.

By and by they find they are all run down and threatened with nervous prostration. They begin to take remedb s which do them no good and soon their condition Is pitiable indeed.
