Prompt and timely attention to this request will save all parties a great deal of a n novanoo, We consume more sugar per capita in America than any other country on earth.

That ball game at the Athle? tic Park Saturday afternoon wns some exciting along about the ninth inning. Hig Stone t lap has got all the towns in Southwest Virginia heat when it comes to summer climate ami attractiveness. The Rconery around bore is equal to the llncst tobe found anywhere east of the Rookios. The annual reunion of the United Confodorate Veterans ami sons of Confederate Veter? ans is being held in t'hatta noogu this week, commencing on Monday. Near a hundred thousand visitors are attending the rounion. You want to make your ar? rangements right now to come to Iii? Stone (iap on the Fourth of July. We had a big time last year, but the celebration this Fourth will surpass any? thing ever seen in the (.'umber lauds. The good reads in Wise Coun? ty bos done more to advertise this section than any nlher one thing, and tint completion of the system this summer and fall will place this county far ahead of any county in tho south in the matter of lirst clasH highways. Let every former in the Rich? mond Magisterial District at? tend the Farmers' Club tit this place on next Saturday after? noon in tho town hall. Come out and hear some good speak? ing on agricultural matters. Around ltig Stone (iap can be made one of tho best trucking and fruit growing sections in tho state, which can bo mado very prolituble if our farmers will only apply modern meth? ods.

Ilollinsworth, su? perintendent of the Cumber laud Valley Dl vision,.commenc? ing June 1st tho Louisville und Nashville Railroad Company will put on u parlor car on trains Hps. 23 and 23, between Norton and Cooburn. This is tho train that leaves Norton early in the morning and re turns about ten o'clock at night. Owing to the heavy travel on si.oo .BO .26 these trains this add!Hnnaiao commodation will bo a great convonieco to tho trnvoliug public and tho L. antl N. is to congratulated. The Post is pleased to know that there is n movement on foot, which has good chances of being perfected, whereby all tho dwelling houses needed in Pig Stone (lap will be erected. Houses will bo built and either sold or rented to those who do siros to move their families here, and the arrangements nre such as to enable houses to be built just ns fast as there io a demand for them. This is a ?novo, if perfected, that will re? sult in more real good to tho town than anything that has taken place here in a long time. At the present time fully one hundred houses could be rented to people i n the coal fields and adjacent towns who desire to move here. The lnck of houses at tho ptosonl time is very ma terially retarding tho growth of the town.
