Jacob K Varner Adjudged Insane
Mr Jacob K Varner, mho with
iis family lives near Monterey, was
in last Saturday adjudged a lunatic
ind on Tuesday, by Sheriff Arbo
<a.?t, assisted by Henry A. Slaven
taken to the Western State
Hospital at Staunton for treatment.
As is always the case tinier such
:ircu instances, and especially so in
Mr Varner's case, because of his
laving to leave his wife and chil
Iren.some of whom are quite young,
t was a pitiable sight to witness
iis departure for the hospital and
ie and his family have the sincere
sympathy oft he entire community.
We trust that Mr Varner's im?
paired state of mind may prove to
je only temporary and that under
-.lie skillful treatment administered
it the hospital he will soon be re?
stored to health, and returned to
iis family.
lt seems, from what can be gath?
ered from his conversation, that
Mr Varner's mind became unsettled
rn tbe question of sancititication.
1'he ministers of the county who
told solely to it, and preach it ex?
clusively, have, Mr Varner so states,
irodueed in his mind an uncertain?
ly as to bis standing with, regard
o tbe question, telling bim at one
ime that he was ''sanctified" and
it another time he was not.

Of th* millions of people, who today $uffcr

centage trace the cause directly to deadly
LaGrippc. lt ls ? germ disease, and make?
a di'ect attack upon the nerves, putting an
extra 6tradn upon them at tbe time their vital?

left fan w th a shattered nervous system, wilh
loss of appetite, lack of energy, Insomnia,

with Dr. Miles' Nervine, a will undo all
that grip has done, bring back appetite, rest
and restore the nerves to their normal activity.

The Cause of Many
Sudden Deaths.
There is a disease) prevailing in this
country most dangerous because so decep?
tive. Many sudden
deaths are caused by
it ? heart disease,
pneumonia. hea?i
failure or apoplexy
are often the result
of kidney disease. If
kidney trouble is al?
lowed to advance the
kidney-poisoned
blood will attack the
vital organs or the
kidneys themselves brqak down and waste
away cell by cell.
Bladder troubles most always result from
a derangement of the kidneys and a cure is
obtained quickest by a proper treatment of
the kidneys. If you are feeling badly you
can make no mistake by taking Dr. Kilmer's
By/MipmRoot, the great kidney, liver and
bladder remedy.
It corrects Inability to hold urine and scald?
ing pain in passing it, and overcomes that
unpleasant necessity of being compelled to
go often daring the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild and the
extraordinary effect of Swamp-Root is soon
realized. It stands the highest for its won?
derful cures of the most distressing cases.
Swamp-Root is pleasant to take and sold
by all druggists fa fifty~eent and one-dollar
sized bottles. You may

this wonderful new dis?
covery and a book that
