EXPERIENCES AND IMPRESSIONS |*o The l>., i Thinking that possibly your readers might l>e inter?sled in some of tin thing's that have interested me in ami around Charles Town, W. Va., I have ventured to jot some of these down snd Da ?m t?, you. Charles Town is the ? i.i.nty Jefferson County, w. V.-t.. said to be the richest county in either of the two Virginias. It is situated in the es treme end of the Pan Handle and i.-? in part of the far famed Vallej of Vir? ginia. One of the things that makes Charles Town of tnteresl toa Preder icksburger is th?- cloae relatioaaip that the Washington family In-art" it. The ?ite was given by Chartes Washington. fi>r whom tin- town is nam?-?l. and be donated the four principal eorners for public buildings for town and the 'own ?a the era*, <? "f Charles Washington. (?en. George Washington knew all tin- section of Country Wall as ?-ark as 1760, in his ca pacit) as sarveyor for Lord Fairfax, who resided at "Greenwaj Court." near WflnrlaTslei. Bad it is said that the town was surveyed by Washington. The principal street in the town run BBl BBu west is name'!

Wm. I.. Wil? son, one of the most distinguished Deru of (i,,. country and s( one time a member of Mr. Cleveland's cabinet. Mr Wilson was a deacon fa) the Bap? tist church of tins piara and was regard <?<! as m,?- ,,(' the most pious an?! up? right men in all this community, always exerting an influen?a for the highest and the l?cst. It would Ik- a gr?'at thing if w?' had mor?- Hum like Mr. Wii ?'?oting the go\ erninent of our country. Jelferson county is remarkable for several things and ?me "f tht m is tin mu'lway" of the oounty. 1 bave never seen auch turnpike my i..\|?'ru-iii-i'. It is said that this county received ? prise of MOO from the New York Herald ami Atlanta Journal automobile contest, which was and prize for the beat leads be? tween New York and Atlanta, the l',rst prize being awarded toa county in New For miles and miles in every direction leading from Charles Town it is a solid stretch of macadam road. I fp te a few yean ?go the roads were maintain?-?! bj a -.-t?m of tailgates, but these have tatM Birtlilh11 anil they ar?- now kept up by a spleniiul road tax. The farms around here art- magnili !,ringing tremendous crops of wheat and corn and cannot be bought for less than ?loo per acre. tine of the interesting sights to me was the Jefferson county alms house. I was invited out by the nparia?w?9dent t?i ihm- and accepted. It looked more to me like a spleniiul old country rcsi d.-iH-e. with a magnificent farm at taih.-d to it of nearly MO acres. 1 never sat down to a better meal and secretly Wished for my capable friend. Mr. S. K. Kaslhum. to ?l" the honors, but 1 tried to do justice. Bev. W. B. Klsnnagan. pastor of the Baptist church here,and Mr. W. J. Phillips were along am! what 1 couldn't do they dul with all ?-as?-. While here 1 made a trip to Harpers Kerry, memorable in history as the placa where John Brown was captured. I and later taken by the Confederates, just before the battle of Sharpshurg. dipt. Quinn was all through here during Us?se terrible days and I have wished for him to ixiint out to me the different positions of the vari?os commanders. While at Harpers Ferry I climbed in company with Mr. Klannagan the notexl Jefferson's Rock. OB which Thomas Jefferson was saul to have deliver.'d his Democratic principles to a great audi? ence. One of the most beautiful pieces of natural scenery I suppose in this country is be Base at this place, where the murmuring Shenandoah mingles its waters with the Potomac and together they start for the sea, while ort either side rises in majestic grandeur the Blue Ridge. Here Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland join hands, and a man speaking in one State csn be heard in tas other two. On Saturday, in company with Mr. Phillips, 1 drove to Berryville in Clark county, and spent the day with my cherished friend. Dr. Julian Broaddus. While there we went to the "Old Chajrel" about 3 miles from Berryville, in whose cemetery sleeps the dust of the famous John Esten Cooke. Faithfully yours, R. Aubrey Williams. Charles Town, W. Va., March ML A LAFAYETTE WOMAN HUNG Marvelous Result of a Woman's Plea. An old lady called on the Root Juice scientist over at Lafayette, Ind., and said: "I actually hung to the neck of rn? husband and pleaded with him to try Root Juice. So much was being saiil about the remarkable cures the remedy has made that I felt it might do him some good. He had suffered for years with his stomach and kidneys and severe headaches. Every change of the weather his back pained him very much and of late years the lightest food would ferment in his stomach and bowels and the fermentation of gas would cause him to bloat so that he could not button his vest. He tried so many medicines that he lost heart, but I finally persuaded him to take Root Juice. He has used but s little over two bottles and I never saw such a change in a man in my life. He told me this morning that he would not take the best farm in the State for what the wonderful medicine has done for him. " A number of local people have reported remarkable cures re? sulting from a short use of the great health-promoting discovery. It gives a good appetite, creates good digestion and seems to heal and tone every organ in the body. Root Juice is $1 a bottle, or three bottles for $2.50, at Goolriclc'a drug store.

The public statement of a Fredericks? burg citizen is in itself strong proof for Fredericksburg people, but confirmation strengthens the evid Here is a Fredericksburg citizen who testified years ago that Doan's Kidney Pills relieved sick kidneys and now states the cure was [lermanent. Can any sufferer from kidney ills ask better proof? You can investigate. The case is right at home. Andrew Murray, Winchester Street, Fredericksburg, Va., says: " I have as much faith in Doan's Kidney Pills today as I had two years ago when I publicly told of my experience with them. Often when I was doing my work, my back began to ache and made me miserable. TiVre was also an ex? treme weakness across my loins and I was in s continual state of unrest.
