TETTER, SALT-RHEUM AND EK?
The intense itching and smarting, inci?
dent to these tliseases. is instantly allayed
by applying Chamberlain'* Eye and Skin
Ointment. Many very bad cases have
been permanent!? cured by it. It is
equally emcient for itching piles and a
favorite remedy for sore nipples, chapped
hands, chilblains, frost bites and chronic
aore eyes. 2.r> cents per box. ***
THE TRAMP" REVIVED.
Many Little Points Pass Under His
It bus occurred to tho "Tramp" that
perhaps something could bo done about
tbe watering placo on tbe coi nor of Sa?
lem avenue opposite the market bouse.
That places of the kind where people can
water t heir uorses are necessary no one
can deuy, but that it should bo placed on
a street where*vehicles and peop'.e walk?
ing are'passing in ami out'so constantly,
is teri*inly not right. Aside from the
fact that, the nutter crossing at that
point contains more or less water, one
Las often and often to go arouud some
wagon drawn up there directly across
the street while the horses drink. And
all this riuht at our market. Could it not
be put somewhere eise?
Speaking of obstructions recalls the
fact that on Railroad avenue just west
of the Randolph street bridge some enter
nrising persons have opened a kind of
produce exchange. Thnt is their busi?
ness and we haven't nuythine to do with
it, but we do almost daily have to go
arouud two wagons backed up against
the sidewalk at this place. These wagons
stand there with no horses attached and
the long poks and breast chains extend?
ing all the way across the street. Is this
And how about iho horse, show that
has beeu going on <or tbe last 'few even?
ings on Jefferson stienc between Salem
and Campbell avenues! Can they not
exhibit this blooded stock somewhere
else: It does seem that the salety of peo?
ple passing along th's thoroughfare
would at least be sufficient reason for a
chauge in the horse market The noise
exchange on .lefferson street opposite
tbe wootl market should be able to handle
this stock without inconvenicuec to the
Jefferson street between Ninth anil
Tenth avenues needs attention ami needs
it badly. <t is full of holes and ruts ami
in rainy weather Ioo'ks almost ns hail as
the approaches to .1 be postoffillice. We
were informed upon reliable authority
that seventeen four-horse loads of bay
went out of sieht in the mud by the post
ollice last week. It might have been a
joke, but we nevertheless warn'those in
that neighborhood that they had better
get their hay when the sun shines.
Honestly we believ- tbere is n:ore glass
and old wire and mashed up tin, barrel
hoops and ether litter on our streets than
in any other city the size of Roanoke in
tbe cou'ntrv. Ami how does it all get
there:- Somebody must mcvo these things
into the street and we wonder what pleas?
ure it can be to .'go poking around ' for
stuff of that kind to put in other people's
way. We have seen broken glass on
Jefferson street and on Campbell avenue
and have found wire haugiug to us evt ry
where. Peaceable, law abiding citizens
would like to be let none.
A GOOD IMPROVEMENT.
Since mauy students come to ns for r?
business course, who are not sufficiently
grounded in tbe ordinary English
branches to nuke anything like the best
possible use of our business training, we
have found it necessary to increase the
scope of our English course, without nd
ditionnl cost to the student, and we can
now offer advantages in this direction ex?
celled by no school in the country We
have spared no expense to get an In?
structor who, for the past year, has made
our Normal English work a crowning
success. Those who can pass satisfactory
examinations need not take the English
work; but those who cannot pass tbe ex?
aminations should not only have but
want the English, because they cannot
have good success without English. This
'feature is not a new one: we have only
added to it. It has developed the school;
and now, foi the good of all, we shall
push it. Correspondence solicited. Call
at tbe Business College and set for your

VIRGINIA COLLEGE NEWS.
Tho Current Topic Club of Virginia
College held its third meeting last) We lines
day evenine. The regular business of
tho club was laid aside in favor of a de?
bate on tho Hawaiian question. "Re
solved, That theHawiiau Islands should
be annexed to the United States," was the
wording as put by the president of the
club The affirmative was led by Miss
Sadie Hale, Ot Georgia, assisted by Misses
Gardener and Pu reell. M.ss Aloha
Wright, of Colorado, ably seconded by
Misses Sawyer and McClead. presented
the negative. The strongest point of the
affirmative was the financial advantage
of annexation. The negative put forward
the constitutionality aud justice of the
question, and the disadvantage to the
United States of an island dependency in
case of war. After a careful considera?
tion of the arguments presented the
judges rendered a unanimous decision in
favor of the negntive.
