FRANK COX. Chairman. HARRY SHAW. Sec'y. TO ADVERTISERS. As you will notice by looking at our columns, we are getting the patron. age of the business community in a very gratifying manner. We must I and will make our paper useful to our patrons. The first place we will look carefully after the news columns and editorial oaoe, so that the people will want to read all of the West Virginian every day. In the second ?:;/. place we will, give our advertisers every consideration with business principles. We are sending out hundreds of sample copies every day, thus reaching people who are not now reading a daily paper. The West Virginian will reach many country homes. Already a number of people on the Rural Routes have asked to be put on our mailing list. We will have correspondents from most of the leading centers in the county, and will always welcome newsy letters from any part of the country. Vou stand by us and we will stand by you, and thus we can j work together for -the profit of both parties. Advertisers are kindly requested to hand in copy the day before they desire a change made. It is better for us, and insures a nicer display. The fate of Ira Kinnan ought to bear its message to young men as to the folly of taking chances with anything where their lives are at stake. Even jumping from a street car when it is running at full speed is dangerous, "but we never seem to think of it until the report comes that some one is hurt. Life is too precious to be foolishly snuffed out by carelessness. The Times a few days ago fired an oia rusty ioau out 01 us Lonsressicin.n shot pouch at Capt. Povener. From the report, it must have been an old cartridge left over from two years ago. Wonder it the editor of the Times would lilce to tackle the Captain again this year? We bav no objections. The conservative editor will enjoy - his exchanges very much more when the Dawson-Teter fiasco is over. We always iilte to read the thoughts of our brethren when they have been it. contemplating upon the shortcomings of the common enemy, but to read half of the fulminations of the factional organs would give a fellow chilblains, Vijjl ague and inflamatory rheumatism. -Brethren, for pity's sake, do let up on this double column, back-action, sclf||l||||ilestructive. Republican - destroying, miscellaneous shooting at Dawsqn and k Teter. It is not at all elevating, but ft to be perfectly frank, it Is disgusting. TKE STATE MEDICAL ASSOCIATION. We hope the members of the State Medical Association will enjoy their .short Stay at Fairmont. We know this little outing is much appreciated by them. Here they are out of reach of the sound of the midnight ringing of their door-bells, and the telephone calls at-the home office will have to be answered by the good wue, or oince boy, with "The doctor is not at home." To be free for a few days from the moans of the sick and the groans <?f the dying will no doubt be a great relief to these over-worked and often unappreciated alleviators of human suffering. Gentlemen, you have a hearty welcome to every attention which can be given you. The town is yours, so far as we have power lo give it?take it and enjoy yourselves to the fullest extent. very poor backing. We have never said much concerning the Dawson-Teter fight, and have refused to he a party to it ill its present malignant form but we do feci like being "agin" any man that the Wheeling Register is legging for. We think the Register is mighty poor backing for a Republican candidate to have. FLEMING, THE FLORIST entertained west virginian j representative this morning?many fairmont people know nothing of the extensive (equipment for cultivating | FLOWERS OWNED BY M. j GLENN FLEMING?HE HAS TEN GREENHOUSES AND RAISES MANY PLANTS. This morning we paid a visit to the gresn-houses of our pojmlar liorist, H. Glenn . Fleming, and were shown [through the different departments. He has the most complete arrangements of any florist in this vicinity. Although his houses are not so extensive as the Weber houses at Oakland, he has grown flowers that compare favorably with theirs. Mr. Fleming has ten different, houses, four at his own home on Locust avenue, and six in the rear of the residence of lb D. Fleming. He is | now putting his plants outside where they will remain during the summer, and they will be put inside when cold weather comes for the winter's supply of flowers. The houses are heated by hot water in cold weather but in the summer the blooming plants must be shaded to a certain extent. Although a great many different kinds of flowers nrp srrown. the main production is carnations. It takes about seven thousand of these to fill the beds and from 200 to 200 can he cut every day. All kinds of carnations are grown and they are very beautiful. The roses have not proved altogether a success this year, but some beautiful ones are grown. The smilax and asparagus room has done well the past winter. All kinds of ferns and palms are grown, and Mr. Fleming has eaten a lemon pie .made from fruit grown in his houses. In the propagating room nothing is used except pure, clean sand in which to start the new slips. In a few weeks all the beds will be refilled with new earth which is prepared by a special process. All the plants are well cared for. as the florist has carefully studied his business and knows what needs to be done. These houses are a credit to our city, and give us a chance to get flowers and plants whenever we want them. Upon .our departure we were pre senteu wiui a ueamuui uuncn 01 flowers for which we are very thankful. ' Dr. Clinton Cushing Dead. WASHINGTON', D. C.. May 11.?
