The National Magazine, with a reputa tion for beincr thoroughly up-to-date in its presentation of every item of the world's doings of interest to the Ameri can neonle. contains in the June issue iiotaoie arncie on me ninese iiumu by V. S. Minister L H. Conger. He takes the stand that the missionaries were not to blame for the trouble, and that their course regarding indemnities was per fectly justifiable; and also presents the question of our future relations with the Flowery Kingdom in a thoughtful and interesting manner. Joe Mitchell Chap pie's gossip of "Affairs at Washington" gives the reader an intimate view of the doings of official and social life at the National capital. The achievements of modern art and trade at the Pan-Ameri can Exposition are pictured with camera and pen. Another in tne series oi cnarm ing Old Testament romances is presented in the storv of "Hagar," the 6lave-wife. In the "involution oi inuiau rAiuiauuu is set forth a puzzling phase of the Indian question. A number of other special articles are also presented, all up to the usual standard of excellence and informa tion. The regular departments are, as usual, filled with interesting and instruc tive matter, and the fiction features of this number are especially strong. Several short stories, sketches and poems of more than usual merit are contributed by bright American authors, and alto gether the June issue of The National Magazine is the biggest value for ten cents on the news-stands. Thia aignatur is on every box of the genuine Laxative BromouiBine Tablet- the remedy that cnrm ewM tn wwe etey GENERAL MANAGER BARR HERE. flaking a Tour of Inspection Over the Seaboard Air Line. Mr. James M. Barr, Vice-President and General Manager of the Seaboard Air Line Railway, spent a few hours n Henderson lnesday. He was traveling in his private car and went South from here making a tour of in spection of the property of which he has recently assumed the manage ment. He was accompanied by Capt. T. W. Whisnant. Mr. Barr is a thorough railroad man and the Seaboard was accounted fortunate when he was induced to come to it. He held an important and lucrative position with the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe, one of the greatest railroad systems of the West, at the time. Previous to that he was with the Norfolk & Wes tern, which property he built up wonderfully and established a great reputation as one of the foremost rail road men of the country. Mr. Barr possesses the highest order of executive ability and is an effective organizer of his forces. Quick to recognize merit he is as swift to appreciate and as ready to reward it. lie has the faculty of getting close to his men and they hold him in warm est regard. Already he has ingrati ated himself with employees and others who have com in touch with him. And the Gold Leak predicts that the better he becomes known the better he will be liked. The work to which he sets himself primarily is the strengthening and building up of the Seaboard Air Line the making of a still greater and more compact rail way system and a more valuable property to the stockholders. But this will not be done at the expense of the people along its lines. Under Mr. Barr s management the same broad and liberal policy which has always characterized the Seaboard's management will be pursued. A Good Cough Medicine. It speaks well for Chamberlain's Cough Remedy when druggists use it in their own families in preference to any other. "I have sold Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for the past five years with complete satisfaction to myself and customer?," says Druggist J. Goldsmith, Van Etteu, N. Y. "I have al ways used it in my own fanillv, both for ordinary cougns and colds and lor the cough following la grippe, and hud it very effica cious." For sale by Melville Dorsey, drug gist.

The Kind You Have Alwajs Bought Signature of &ut&4ff&Jrt- A HUSTLING REPRESENTATIVE. Mr. D. J. Weisiger, Traveling Freight and Passenger Agent of the Old Dominion Steamship Company. Zealous in looking after and pro moting the interests of his company seeking new business, strengthening the ties of existing friendships, and keeping true the rudder of old cus tomers Mr. D. J. Weisiger, the fopular and wide-awake Traveling reight and Passenger Agent of the Old Dominion Steamship Company, (headquarters in Richmond, Va.) spent a short while here yesterday. A gentleman of genial nature and en gaging manner it is always a pleasure to meet him. Full of delightful reminiscence, ready with anecdote or repartee, a close observer and well informed he is a captivating conver sationalist, ever and anon with some reference to the Old Dominion line and its superb service. Nor is Mr. Weisiger a good talker in private conversation only. He is equally gifted as a speaker in public when occasion arises. And perhaps it is as a post-prandial speaker that he excels. Seeing him we were re minded of a short but eloquent speech he made not long ago which is worthy of publishing in this connection. The occasion was an excursion of railroad and steamboat men over the Valley Railroad. Lehigh About 12o passenger agents of Southern railway and steamboat lines were tendered a trip from New York to Buffalo as the guests of that re nowned route, their pleasure and comfort being personally looked after by Mr. Charles S. Lee, the very effi cient and popular General Passenger Agent. On the return trip after hav ing been royally entertained as every way became the entertainers and the entertained Mr. Lee was presented with a beautiful Loving Cup as a slight testimonial of appreciation and regard for the many courtesies received at his hands by those whose good for tune it was to be guests of his road on that occasion. After the presenta tion of the Loving Cup Mr. Weisiger offered the following toast to Mr. Lee and the Lehigh Valley Railroad. He said: "Mr. Lee, we left our happy homes for you. Like the visit of theQueen of Sheba to King Solomon, we came, and Lo! the half has not been told us of the great Lehigh Valley Railroad. On behalf of your delighted guests, I wish to offer this sentiment: "Here's to the Lehigh Vnlley Railroad: May it overcome every mountain of difficulty, and pass through every peace ful valley with success; may the gentlest zephyrs of Heaven fan the brows of all its travelers; may its black diamonds sptrkle and illuminate every sea and land; and may its genial and whole-souled General Passenger Agent long live to point the tourist and traveler to a Beulah Land of peaceful repose."

The steady growth of this firm is the strongest proof of the merit of its line of goods and fair treatment of its cus tomers. 1901 finds the house working on the second million of business. The "Lone Jack" line of shoes, the trade mark of all the leather made goods, has met with phenomenal success, aud are extensively worn in no less than twenty-one States, reaching from the Atlantic to Mexico. It is hardly reasonable to believe that Geo. I). Witt Shoe Co. overcome thecom petition of the largest markets in this conotry, and now sell a large trade in Pennsylvania and Ohio, and make ship ments almost daily, under the very shadow of two of the largest cities in this country, Baltimore and Philadelphia, to Pittsburg and Cleveland, where they have a salesman established at each place. Last week the house made a large ship ment direct to Durban, South Africa, of goods made up on order, especially adapted to the demands of that coun try. Nothing could nrgue a bolder stroke of enterprise, unless it be the big new shoe factory on Ninth street, than the simple announcement that foursales men are at work, at this time, in the Empire State of Texas, marked by four divisions of territories, viz.: San An tonio, Waco, Greenville and Houston, and so successful has been this field for this firm and for Lynchburg, that the St. Louis lion of competition growlsjaud is made to acknowledge another competi tor. When the thirty hustling salesmen of this house, traveling in almost as many States, who are daily showing aud talk ing the "Loue Jack" line, the best value, at the lowest price, is taken into con- sideration, it fully explains the necessity of erecting the Ninth Street Shoe Fac- tory to accommodate the increased de mand. The new Shoe Factory building now under construction is a type of the modern shoe factory, in shape and de sign; 140 feet loug, 40 feet wide, on Ninth street, fire stories high, mill constructed, to obtain a minimum rate of insurance, and will beinstalled with the finest steam and electric power plant obtainable. The equipment of this plant, from the base ment to the too floor, will consist of the most modern inventions in shoe ma chinery, to enable the making of shoes at the lowest cost. The proximity of the factory to the jobbing house works many advantages. Ihe power plant, besides furnishing power to run ihe machinery of the shoe factory, steam to heat factory, light for the building, will supply heat, light and power for elevators, in the jobbing house. Could a more condensed system for economy be devised, which will work as an advantage to lower the cost of shoes, while the volume of business goes higher?
