Prompt and timely attention to this request will save all parties a great deal of annoyance, Civic League Column RDITKD tlV Tin: UK AO UK Meetings, First Friday of Bach Month. The annual mooting of the League will he held Friday afternoon, at 8:80, as usual in the Court Boom. This marks the cloSe of the Second year of the League's work ami we think wo may justly say that it baa been an? other sn icossfu] year, and that tho wotk is growing and spreading in a most satisfac? tory way. There is limitless work to he done, ami it all goes slowly, but we hope that the now year, commencing with our next meeting, will be crowned with still greater suc? cess and more accomplished. Let us remind all members to be on hand Friday for the elec? tion of new officers for tlu? year anil to hear the yearly reports from all the Comtnittoos, Any new members wishing to join the League this year, we would be pleased to have them attend this meeting and start out fresh with US, and we sin cerely hope that our new rcsi dents will fool an interest in this work and join us. It would simplify matters greatly if all members brought their duos, $1.00 i) year, for the coming year with them and hand it to the Treasurer at this meeting. "T? make thy garden fair Si IhOlI canst; Thou werkest itevct alone , I'orohance be whose plot i., next to thine. Will see It slid humil his Own " Our thoughts are naturally turning with the spring tune tu spring Dowers and the planting of our gardens. The League has written to mil eltieient rep? resentative, Congress ma n Slemp, for Heeds, to which he has responded very promptly, and the Private Home Commit tee hopes to have them in hand to distribute very shortly. We Should also like to remind our members, should they in tend doing any outside order ing, of the florists who so generously responded to appeals for the prizes for the Flower Show last Summer, ami sug? gest, if ihey tind it practicable, to place their orders with the following: The Bristol Floral Co., Bristol, Va Tenn.j w. it, Gray, Oakton, Fairfax county, Va.; Thomas Median ami Sons, German town, Pa.; Henry A. Dreer, 711 Chestnut Str. et, Philadelphia, Pa. The League would like to notify the general public that it expects to have its annual Flower Show again this sum mer, and very probably a Chrysanthemum Snow in the fall, and urges every one to begin making preparations early and in ample time to have a great and varied display this year. The League notices with real pleasure that the town authori? ties have been busy cleaning out tho gutters in the business section. This little work gave an uirof real improvement, ami it is hoped that it is the begin niug of the thorough spring cleaning which is to come, Lett Call (or Trees. Any one desiring to add an order for shade trees with the Lougue's will please do so at ouce, as the order will bo placed this week. Lust week brought in an additional order for six? teen trees. The Christines toys brought from the single city of Nurem berg, Oerraany, by the United States lost year, sold for $ti, 000,000 retail. Contract 'Will Probably Go To Plow? man Construction Co. A telegram from Congross man Stamp Monday stairs that the contract for tho erection of the Federal building at thin place Iibb not been awarded yet by the government, but that it will in nil probability go to the Plowman Construction ('<>., of Philadelphia, OS thev were the lowest didders. As tho money for the erect ton of this building has been ap preprinted by Congress, it is expected that work on the same will be commenced at an earlv date. Southwest To Fore. The way in which the Snath Western part of old Virginia has caught on in the matter of hotter highways is very gratify ing to state Highway Commis? sioner P. St. Julien Wilson. Russell county, on Tuesday, voted a bond issue of $276,00(1 for good roads. With Wise ' county's $700,000 ami I.

A revival is needed and expected; possibly few places need one more. May wo depend Oil your presence and co operation? The Church is a great com puny organized to do business for (led and humanity. Every member is a partner and share bolder in thin company Its success depends on the interest taken in its welfare and devel opment by its members. No company or corporation, organ ir.ed for business; could succeed without the presence and inter est of its membership. Tito same is true of God's Chiirch. This is especially true at a lime like this, when u great move mentis desired in the interest of souls. Every member who is not too sick to be oui should come This is a time to test men's faith In God and His work. If God's work is superior to our personal business, then lot's close our business and go (0 church. Truth is, yon will l?se nothing by closing your stort ?, shops ami offices at 7 o'clock and going to church. VViu and your clerks und office hands need a little rest ami change from the continued grind of business. Wo are looking for you; we are depending on you Will you com of The entire public is most cordially inyifOd t<> attend these services J. W. W. Snt i.Kit. Judge H. A. W. Skeon ad ministered a well deserved rebuke to ,i party In court this week, who had sworn oul a warrant allcdging that be had been very badly treated by being sold spoiled meat, or at least that was what the war rant charged. When the trial came up in court on an appeal from a Justice's court, the said complainant know nothing whatever. Judge Skeon warn ed him and others who swore OUt warrants under such con ditions that they would be lu Id responsible for all tho posts and also paid his compliments to Justice) who would issue war? rants under such pretenses. Judge Skeen is right. The I Commonwealth is forced year!)
