No man can look into the fu? ture and tell what is going to happen. A man may work and slave for years in accumu? lating a little property, but fire is powerful enough to wipe out his savings in an hour. Seems strange that any? body should overlook the vital matter of carrying insurance 1 on his property. My compa? nies are solid and prompt. A postal card will bring .one ol my agents to see you about this important matter. JAMES F. HURT. On Sunday afternoon Mr.K. B. Peery ac ? companied by Mr. Joseph Peery, of North .

Dr. St. Clair in making the rounds of the town has found that the greater part of the population has been vacinated of a sufficiently recent date to preclude the necessity of their being vacinated again. There were only about Eeventy-five per? sons in the town who needed the treat? ment, of whom he has vaccinated about twenty-five. As many more have been listed for vaccination by other physicians, so there will be a very few left unprotected in a few days. BURKE'S GARDEN ITEMS. Your correspondent has neither gone to the war nor emigrated across the conti? nent. He is not brave enough for either, but he would prefer the latter to the for? mer.

Miss Annie Moss was successful in this class, and one year's subscription to The Ladies Home Journal was awarded to her by Rev. W. 11. Greever. On Friday more* ing the exercises were .continued. The first part was a contest in oratory for a gold medal by the young men. The med? al was won by Mr. W. G. Moss, the med ? list of last year. Will, you must be con? gratulated on winning medals at B. G. A. This was followed by the speaker of the day, Prof. C. 13. Cannady,ofRoanoke Col? lege, who gave us an excellent address on education. The special music given by Miss Alice Alexander and Mr. W. H. Alderson made the occasion delightful. Prof. Cannady's address closed the exer? cises proper, but an entertainment was given by the school on Friday evening which seemed to be very much enjoyed. The two plays were interpersed with music by Miss Alexander and Mr. Alderson. The entertainment did not end the pleas? ures of the young people, for a picnic on Clover Knob, near the suburbs of Bear Town, was a source of enjoyment. About 15 of the juveniles viewed the landscape with telescopes and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the prettiest'spot in Southwest Va. A dance which was well attended at Mr. J. B.

OME persons say it is natural for them to lose flesh during summer. But losing flesh is losing ground. Can you afford to approach another win? ter in this weakened con? dition ? * Coughs and colds,weak throats and lungs, come quickest to those who are thin in flesh, to those eas? ily chilled, to those who have poor circulation and feeble digestion. Scott's Emulsion( of cod liver oil <a)Hh hypo phosphites does just as much good in summer as in winter. It makes flesh in August as well as April. You certainly need as strong nerves in July as in January. And your weak throat and lungs should be healed and strength- [? ened without delay. >?

JACKSON, Druggist. DOWN TO N-INE CENTS. An Illuminative incident in ECxten ^Ivo financial Transactions on a Street Car. They boarded a carat Wall street and pushed to the rear and squeezed them? selves side by side into one fortuitous? ly vacant scat, thoroughly oblivious of the fecliugs or countenances of the men and women about them. One was a rather young man of striking clothes and features, both pretty well set off by a fine diamond pin in a very red tie. The other, an older man, whose well .cat clothes and wrinkled face im? pressed observers with a combination of dollars and dyspepsia. Their con? versation was neither remarkably loud nor remarkably low. The only thing remarkable about it was the size of the dollar marks they dealt in. "If you will make it ?3,000,000 I will have the parties at your ofiice in the morning." This from the j'oung man. The an? swer of his companion was lost in a lurch of the car, which landed a woman and a baby in his lap. They paused po? litely to accept her apologies and frown at the baby. The second capitalist con? tinued the conversation. "The deal is good for over $30,000, 'OOO in three years, and?n A second interruption occurred, more ominous than the first. The conductor bad forced himself through the throng. "Fares, please." The woman with the baby paid. "Fares, please." This time to the five-and-thirty mil? lion dollaritcs, whose imposing figures had evidently not reached the ears of the conductor. He held out his,haud. His two passengers kept both theirs running from one pocket to another without result. The gentleman next to them in the corner reached out and ] naid his fare. 'Tares," repeated the concuctor. The dyspeptic clutched fot;r cents nervous!}-. He had got that from a newsboy, after spending $20 worth of time at a dollar a second waiting on the corner. The other six cents was not forthcoming. The passengers stopped growling?those who had at? tempted it stopped reading their pa? pers. Even the baby snickered, but the mother accidentally knocked it against the conductor, and as if partly in sym? pathy with the plight of its late ene? mies it began to howl. "Hurry up, gentlemen." There was very little pat4encc left in the conductor's voice. "That's all right," said the young man "We haven't got any change." Possibly the millionaires were.short of Metropolitan, and didn't want to take any chances of increasing its divi? dends. "You'll have to get off," said the conductor. "Wait a minute," said the dyspeptic, lie had struck something in the depths of his overcoat pocket. His anxieties had fallen from $30,000,000 to six cents in two minutes, and no wonder he was excited. The young man's countenance was as undisturbed as the car win? dow, though he moved to get out. Put his cocapitalist had at last extricated one lone coin from his overcoat. It was a nickel, and their total available assets had now risen to nine cents. The con? ductor reached for the money. The car had been stopped. "Jiever mind about the cent," he said, and the nine cents was passed into his hand. A few-more snickers among ti ctanders and a few from the sitters,' and the millionaires were both buried in their newspapers, and the car moved on. But the passengers bad lost for? ever all chance of hearing the rest of that $30,000,000.?^. Y. Sun.
