West Virginia is busy from border to border. Every town and hamlet, almost, has its share of development and activity in business. The State is now the talk of the country, and persons of capital from without are flocking here by hundreds almost. The gold regions never afforded the real substantial fortune getting opportunities that West Virginia now offers.—Fair mont Times. IIox. William Seymour Edwards says he is not a candidate for Con gress in the Third District thin time. Me will probably be a candidate some other time. Mr. Edwards ex pects to travel extensively the coming summer and fall and will no doubt enjoy himself much better out of politics than he would were he shaking hands with the voters, smiling to the women and kissing the dirty-faced babies. Final results of the twelfth census give the total population of the United Stales, on June 1, 1900, as 84,233,0G9, with a margin of error of possibly 1,000,01)0 accouut i ed for by the uucertanity regarding the population of the Philippines.

The same three countries exceeding the United States in popu lation, also surpass it iu area.

The editor of the Citizen would hardly publish anything of this kind if he were not positively sure it was the truth, the whole truth and nothing hut the truth. Dr. T. W.
