Monterey, Va., Friday, Oct. 3, 1002 Hay Register Until October 15. There is a provision in the ordi? nance relating to the registration of voters which is very important to those who, through careless neg? lect of the published notice, fail to register at the appoint.d time, says the Charlottesville Progress. It is the one which empowers the regis? trars to act "a. such other places within the district or ward as may be convenient and necessary to complete the registration of the voter,.." This clearly means that anv two of the registrars, acting as a majority of the board, can regis? ter applicants at any place within their ward or district between now an4 October 15. Notice of such registration is not required* This clause of the ordinance will protect many who fail to attend the regu? lar meetings of the board and who will otherwise be debarred from registering for the next twelve months.

On the morning of Sept.25 1902, j shortly before 10 o'clock, the aged veteran, John ShulU passed quiet? ly and peacefully to rest like he was going to sleep. His suffering for six long weary weeks had been great, having had pneumonia and other complications, but through it all his simple patience and child? like trust in Jesus his Savior, was so complete that he was made able to bear these heavy burdens, and come off conqueror at the last, for just a short time before his death he prayed God to take him to Him? self and thereby release him from his suffering, So, in a few minutes, ho exclaimed?"God is going to answer. He is coming, He is com ing"~-theu a few moments more and he was not, for God took him. This ended a life of usefulness, which had reached far beyond the limit of its allotted time, for his age was 81 years, 9 months and 20 days. "He was a mechanic by trade, ?born in Augusta county, afterwards lived in Pooahontas, Alleghany, Bath and Highland counties at dif? ferent times, was married in J839 to Deborah H. BrinkWy of Alle? ghany county who survives him, served his country throughout the civil war, belonging to a Bath squadron of confederate cavalry, and lastly and best of all served his God, was converted in a revival conducted at Green Hill church by Hammond and Clark, united with the Presbyterian church and con? tinued a life of faith, His surviv? ing children are T, H. Shuitz, of Staunton, Va. V. S. Shuitz and Mrs. A. W. Bird of this place. Appro? priate funeral services were conduct? ed at Green Hill church by Rev. VV, VV. Carson where his interment took place, "Seryant of God, well done! Re. t from thy loved employ; The battle fought, the viet'ry won Enter thy master's joy." G. C. C. In riemorium. Andrew Fleming Bradshaw, born March 31,1876, died Sept. 10.1902, aged 26 years, 5 months and 16 days. The subject of this sketch died at Covington, Va. Sept. 16th, 1902, of typhoid fever, where he had been employed at the pulp mill for about three years. As soon as news of his sickness reached home, his brother started for his bedside, but in spite of all that willing hands could do the hand of death could not be stayed, and on Tuesday evening he passed quietly away. Deceased was the youngest son of Franklin and Estaline V. Brad? shaw and was converted and joined the M. E. Church South under the ministry of Rev. M. P. Weikle about four years ago, since which time he had lived an active chiis tian life, dying in the tryumph of a living faith. His body was laid to rest Thursday evening under the boughs of a large spreading oak on the old home place, while the rust? ling of the golden leaves over head seemed to say?Farewell father, mother, sister, brother, meet me on the other shore. The funeral service was conduct? ed by Rev, J. F. Valliant assisted by Rev. If. P. Weikle, from the text "It is appointed unto man once to die but after that the judgment.' He leaves to mourn his loss, an aged father and mother, two brothers and four sisters, namely; Robert, of Horton, W. Va. J. Frank, Mrs. John H. Blagg, Misses Ada E. and Mary C. Bradshaw all :>f this county, and Mrs. Lehman Voung of Marlinton. W. Va.

Sick .tock or poultry should not eat cheap stock food any more than sick persons should expect to bo c.ired by food. When your stock and poultry are siok give them med? icine. Don't gtulf them with worth? less stock foods. Unload the bowels and stir up the torpid liver and the animal will be cured, if it bo possi? ble to euro it. Black-Draught Stock and Poultry Medicine unloads the bowels and stirs up the torpid liver. It cures every malady of stock if taken in time. Secure a 25-cent can of Black-Draught Stock and Poultry Medicine and it will pay for itself ten times over. Horses work better. Cows give more milk. Hogs gain flesh. And liens lay more eggs. It solves the ? roblen) of making as much blood, esh and en?rgy as possible out of tho smallest Snout of food con? sumed. Buy a can from your dealer.
