We have quite a number of 'Isl
tora and strangers In iho cltv. They
are attending United States C.Kiit.
Mr. and Mrs. Erastus Payne. of
Newport, Va. are visitors nt the home
of Mr. and Mrs. Layno, on Bluefleld
avenue. They will remain in the
city several days.
The paving on Bland street Is pro
ceeding with a rush and the first
thiug you know we shall have this
business thoroughfare looking In me
tropolitan shape.
Business was suspended at Car
tersville, Ga., the home of tho late
Rev. Sam P. Jones, when the body of
the evangelist reached there. TV
City Council and about 3.000 per
sons met the body at th^ station.
Why don’t the newspapers of this
region stop publishing so much blood
and thunder about every trivial
fracas that occurs. They hunt i»p
every little petty difficulty and then
try to make a sensational arti :lo cut
of it. Can’t they understand that
such stuff reflects upon our section.
If you do not receive the Daily
Lender regularly every morning, let
us kuow about it at our business
office ou Bland street and we will
see to it that the carrier delivers
the paper more carefully or get one
that will. If you receive your paper in
a mutilated condition report it at this
Do our people observe how quiet
the Bluefleld political boss-ridden
ring Is those days. Watch them,
good people, for they surely have
something up their sleeves. They are
only keeping quiet that they may the
better deceive the voter. A long ser
vice In deception peculiarly tits them
for all kinds of political trickery.
They hope by silence to keep their
past record from the public and gain
another lease of power in their ne
ferlous political domination.
Dr. J. D. McCue desires us to cor
rect a false statement recently pub
lished in these columns in reference
to his leaving this city with the in
tention of getting married. There
was not a word of truth In the re
port and the doctor would like to
know the wise Ike who acted so of
ficiously. In our innocence, and
knowing nothing of the nffai**, we
were imposed upon, and now w<> are
ready to help the doctor wallop tin
fellow- who would dare play such a
malicious trick.
Put men in the State Sena* * who
will represent the people fairly and
honestly on all question-.*. Mr. Jair
us Collins is such a man and posses
ses all the requisites necessary to
command respect and attention on
all public questions. He is not a par
tisan and will represent all alike. He
aspires to the nosit tor. because he
thinks he can Jo the community in
which he is deeply Interested some
good. He knows what the people need
and what they want and he has the
Independence to demand and stand
up for the rights of his people, Send
him as your representative to the
State Senate and he will be a talih
ful and consistent servant >f his
fellow citizens in every way in his
United States Court convened In
tho City Hall, thin city, yesterday.
Judge Dayton presiding. Judge Day
ton arrived a little late nnd ccurt
was not convened until 2 o’clock In
I the afternoon. Ilia charge to tne

eat manner and wus complimented
on every hand by those who heard
It. On account of the lato hour of |
1 tho coming of the court there was
but little business transacted, only j
a few unimportant motions being
made. It Is generally thought that
this will bo a short session o? co.'.rt.
ns Judge Dayton has expressed a de
dro to got a little rest .f possible

has been Increased by tho absence of
Judge Keller from this circuit

Are Toil Going to But a Steel Mn This Pall?
If so. Bear in Mind that the:
Is the best Steel Range on the market and the
Price Is Right
In fact the Anchor ta the only Range on the
market that haa any particularly distinct fea
turea. The manufacturers of thia range have
broken away from the worn out traditions of
range building and have constructed a dur
able and beautiful Range full of efficient,
modern features.
Thia Range ia ao constructed that the Smoke
Flue cornea out at the Back, thereby leaving
both the top of the range aa well as the
arming cloaet without any obstructions.
They are made from I*e“vy Cold Rolled Steel
I late, the bake oven being made of ten gauge
. teel Plate, thia being the heaviest material
ever known in Steel Range construction. The
oven flues are double with thick Asbestos Card
Boards between the two steel plates, therefore
mnking the oven indestructable and a perfect
baker, as the asbestos lining holds the heat in
the oven where it should be and prevents it
radiating out into the room in hot weather
and making it very uncomfortable for the one
doing the cooking.
No one thinking of buying a Steel Range
cun afford to do so without first calling at my
store and making a critical examination «#
