Tin- ?-xeollent report ?>f the 1
mine?' Committee presented to a
adopted hy the City Council at*
annual meeting Tuesday nig
shows that the finances of the ci
are in splendid condition and th
our credit is the very best.
After the payment of the in?lel?
ednoss of every committee of t)
Council, which in some cases exceei
ed their appropriates from aba
lute necessity, and after provulin
for other important matters tin
came within the payment! ?>t* th
year, we find a healthy balance i
the hands of the treasurer of It
t.vtvn 18,000 and ?19.000.
This must ?be a matter ?>f real prit!
to the members of the Council an
highly satisfactory to the citizens o
Fredericksburg.
The Council as a txidy, in view o
this report and th?- extensiv Im
provements for th?' year, is justl;
entitled to a vote of thanks and eon
fidencv of the public for their faith
ful and successful labors, given with
out the hope of fee or ?reward othet
than that of a consciousness of dele?
gated duty faithfully performed.
The improvement! made from
year to year may not have aiit. d
everybody in every way, but this has
been the case in all cities and towns
where such work has Urn don?-.
Permanent improvements must be
made by the public wrvants of any
city or town whos?' citizens haw any
appreciation ?>f beauty or order, and
who would hold out inducements to
people and manufacturers of other
enmmunitu's to settle among us and !
become a part of us.
The fact that other treat ?iiii?n?ve- !
merits, private and public, in a?ldi
tion to those made by trie Coiinci
during the year are now in coarse i>
?construction has rejoiced the hear
of the citizen, invited public atten
tion to the spirit of improvement ii
the town, and has satisfit the publii
that Fredericksburg is by no mean
a finished town.
The improvements of the R., V. &
P. R. R. are both useful and highlj
necessary for the travelling public,
The passenger depot will be commo?
dious and convenient, the freight de?
pot meets all demands, and the next
improvement will be overhead
trains, that our crowded streets may
not be blocked with the 50 or more
daily trains. This necessity shows
the immense and rapidly increasing
business of the road as well as of the
town.
Our $40,000 school building, the
pride of Fredericksburg, the nearly
completed postoffice building by the
government, th? widespread ing and
up-to-date no/ma! school a few hun?
dred yards from town, which
will adorn our western hills
and keep vigil over the busy
town, are all improvements of
urgent necessity and of the high?
est order, and wil| proclaim Freder
icksburg one of the most prosperous
cities in the State.
In view of these splendid achieve?
ments, what is the lesson of the
hour? This, that all citizens, all
taxpayers and public spirited men,
co-operate ?n everything that looks
to the good of the town or the better?
ment of the people, until we reach
the very highest efficiency possible
in these directions.
JOHN W. DANIEL
Senator John Warwick Daniel has
passed to his reward, and with his
death the old "Commonwealth of
Virginia is plunged in the deepest
grief. He was.t-eyond doubt,the best
beloved man in the State, and his
like will never be seen again in the
Old Dominion. He was great in
War, as his honorable scars attested,
and as great in peace. No one who
has ever listened to his matchless
eloquence can ever forget it. His
love for Virginia and for his brethren
of the Confederacy was intense, and
he was at his best when he had Vir?
ginia and the Confederate soldier as
his theme. He could arouse the ola
soldiers to a frenzy of delight or
touch their deepest sympathies as he
wilted. And now his silver tongue!
is stilled, but his services to his State
in peace and war will live forever in '
the hearts of his people.
Roosevelt, Hughes and Taft are to
meet. Will it be hard to guess
which of the three will obtain the
longest notice in the press dispatch. '
How ?can we expect to have a safe
and sane 4th so long as wicked! Ne?
vada allows prize fights to be pulled
off at Reno? I

SENATOR DANIEL LAID TO REST
The funeral of Senator John W. Daniel

ple as could be.
The family decided against having a
state funeral, and the body was not
taken to Richmond to lie in state in the
capitol, which has been offered by Gov.
Mann for that purpose. So intense was
the desire of the family for simplicity
that there was n? public view of the
body at the Daniel home.
Bishop Tucker, of the Episcopal dio?
cese of southern Virginia, conducted
the funeral. He was assisted by the
Rev. Joseph B. Dunn, rector of the
church, and the Rev. Dr. Robert H.
Fleming, chaplain of Garland Kodes
Camp, Confederate Veterans.
Vice President Sherman appointed
the following senators to represent the
upper branch of Congress at the funeral :
Messrs. Martin, Rayner, Smith, of
Maryland; Simmons, du Pont, Oliver,
Warren, Kean, Bacon, Carter. Wet
more and Money.
The House was represented by the
entire Virginia congressional delegation
and Representatives Payne, of New
York; Clarke, of Missouri; Bingham, of
Pennsylvania; Hull, of Iowa, and Taw
ney, of Minnesota.

SUMMER HAIR DRESSING
Ask K. N. (?oolrick For Parisian Sage,
If You Want The Best.
Almost everybody in Frederickaburg
knows that there is no preparation for
the hair that can compare with Parisian
Saga.
It cures dandraff, stops falling hair
and itching scalp in two weeks, or
BlOOey back.
It puts radiance and lustre into that
?lull lifeless hair that many women
p..ss.-srt. noil dot'? it in a few days.
It makes hnir grow; prevents hair
fr.'in turning gray and is without doubt
the most refreshing and invigorating
hair took in the woild.
It is daintily perfumed and is not in
the least sticky ?ir greasy.
In summer, peo[)le of refinement use
it regularly, liecause it keeps the scalp
cool and free from odor or perspiration.

a wonderful hair restorer; it stoppe! my

BEWARE OF OINTMENTS FOR CA?
TARRH THAT CONTAIN MERCURY.
as mercury will surely destroy the sense
of smell and completely derange the
whole system when entering it through
the mucous surfaces. Such articles
should never be used except on pres?
criptions from reputable physicians, as
the damage they will do is ten fold to
the good you can possibly derive from
them. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufac?
tured by F. J. Cheney & Co.. Toledo,
()., contains no mercury, and is taken
internally, acting directly upon the
blood and mucous surfaces of the sys?
tem. In buying Hall's Catarrh Cure be
sure you get the genuine. It is taken in?
ternally and made in Toledo, Ohio, by
F. J. Cheney ft Co. Testimonials free. ?
Sold by druggists. Price, 75c. per
