and 23 are dates that Norfolk people
write in rod ink. On these dates the
eleventh annual tournament of the
State V luntoer Firemen's association
will bo hold In that city , and it is nu
ttvont extraordinary. Norfolk never
does anything on the half-way plan ,
and wo judge from their liberal adver
tising that this nffnir will bo on the
way nnd n half plan. Some neat but
ton budges have been put out for ad
vertising purposes.
A crowd of children of South Norfolk
havn for Homo time past boon disturb

throwing corn ou the windows , nud
otherwise playing annoying pranks.
List night this sort of "fun" bccauu
rather too tame and they turned their
attention to the church , where they al
most succeeded iu breaking up the
meeting. This action is n serious of
fense ngainst the laws of the state and
these who have been guilty of it should
have u oaro that they are not prosecuted.
Some of them are known , nnd prose
cutions are very likely to toke place if
there is not an immediate cessation of
this sort of disturbance.

SEVERE ATTACK OF GRIP.
Cured by One Bottle of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy.
"When I had nu attack ot the grip
last winter ( the tccoud oue ) I actually
cured myholf with one bottle of Ohuui-
borluiu's Cough Remedy , " says Frank
W. Pony , editor of the Enterprise ,
Shortsville , N. Y. . "This is the honest
tiuth. I ut times kept from cougliiug
myself to pieces by taking a tiuspoouful
ot this roxnody , nud whtu the roughing
spt-11 would come on at night I would
tnku a dpso and it seemed that iu the
briefest interval the cough would pass
off and I would go to sleep perfectly
free from cough ana its accompanying
pains. To sny that the remedy acted as
n most ngreeablo surprise Is putting it
very mildly. I hart no idea that it
would or could knock out the grip ,
simply because I had never tried it for
such n purpose , but it did , nud it seemed
with the second attack of coughing the
remedy caused it to not only bo of less
duration , but the pains were far less
severe , nnd I had not used the contents
of one bottle before Mr. Grip had bid
me adieu. " For sale by the Kiocuu

ACCORDING TO INSTRUCTIONS.
Farmers Petitioned for It They Must
Patronize the Service Inspectors
Will Sco That the Rural Routes are
Treated
[ from Tuoflday'd Dally. ]
Under instruction of the pustofllco de
partment at Washington , the tlmo
sahodulo on thu rural free delivery
routes from this city , has been changed
rein nftornpon to morning , nnd begin-
ling with May 1 the carriers will lonvo
the olllco nt 7 : ! IO o'clock n. in.
This ohnngo IH iniulo at petition of the
patrons on all of the routed. Route 1
icli was slated to bo carried after
loon , beginning with yesterday , will
3ontlnun with the morning Eorvlco
straight through.
A latoniiiiounoemunt from the post
olllcu department at Washington , thnt
hero \VIVH to bo instituted a rigid in
spection of rural mall delivery routes ,
mil that all routes not up to the ro-
lutromonts would bo abandoned , has
caused bomothlng of a ( lurry.
A route of ordinary proportions
should handle each month between
> ,000 and 0,000 pieces of mail. Some
roaoh as high an 10,000 in more thickly
sottlud communltlox , but many otlioro
all down to an nvorngo of about 2,000.
It is this chum that the government
will invuHtlgato and it is up to the
farmers on such routes to show why
the service should not bo discontinued.
If the business is found to bo loss than
t should Do , in the minds of the spuc-
nl agents , recommendations will bo
undo Ilrst ns to what should bo douo to
oinedy the difficulty. Then if the
routes do not pick up , the routes will bo
oidorod discontinued.
In connection with the investigation ,
ho good roads question will bo carefully
considered. If the routes are found to
bo in poor shape , and not maintained
with the idea of assisting the carriers iu
iivery possible way , thnt fact will out
considerable figure in the recommenda
tions of the ngeuts.

Danger of Colds and Grip.
The greatest danger from colds and
grip is their resulting in pneumonia.
If reasouablo care is used , however , and
Ohauiberlniu's Cough Remedy taken ,
all danger will be avoided. Among the
tens of thousands who have used this
remedy for these diseases we have yet
to learn of a sluglo case having resulted
iu pneumonia , which shows conclus
ively thit it is a certain preventive of
that dangerous disease. It will cure
cold or an uttok of the grip in less time
than any other treatment. It is
pleasant and safe to take. For sale by

PRANK OFJHEJJGHTNING ,
Smashed Top of Piano at Home of W.
W. Quivey in Pierce.
[ From Thursday's Dally. ]
During tne electric storm at Pierce
Tuesday afternoon lightning played a
queer freak at the ho0 of W. W.
Quivey , ex county attorney. No signs
of the stroke are visible on the outside
of the house but on the interior the wall
paper is badly scorched , and the next
effect the bolt had was on the piano ,
where it pplit the top almost into kindl-
ng wood and loft the cover unharmed.
A small plaster statue on the piano was
decapitated and left standing. No one
was in the hotJse at tha time and the
damage to the furniture was all that
was done and this wus not large.
