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
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

our brethren when they have been

of the common enemy, but to read half
of the fulminations of the factional

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.

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

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
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
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
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
