The flow of water is sufli- t-out to furnish power for tho plnut, anil is ahoacly dammed except pates.

Towns IIOL lar^ 1 ' 1 tl.iin Deiiion. have maintained «jk-o- trie light plants that "cost more to erect and operate than this promises to. Why not Deiitoir? WE DON'T WANT THE PHILIPPINES. Soiuo little idea ol what wo might expect from the Philippine Islands, - in a cotnmorcial way, may be gained from the figures for 1S95 and 1896-the Jatest obtainable. lu 1890 tho exports of tho inlands aiuouutod to $22,000,000 and the articles were heinp, sugar, coffee, copra, tob.tvc-o, indigo, teak,ebony,fruitsand spices. The imports for the same tirno wore $12,000,000, articles not enumerated. The revenues to Siiiiin wcro $13,000.000 and the expenditures by Spain on their account wore $15,000,000--a net loss of $2,000,000. The question arises, do we w a u t territory ,six thousand milos from our nearest coast cities, tho industries in · which are agriculture, mining and grazing? Have ye not already fully enough land, right at home, to do- vote to growing of sugar, tobaoco, grains, and to grazing? The prices of things agricultural, naturally stimulate their production, and it may be safely put down that the United States, as now territorially, ·will rise to any demand for them, as was demonstrated in the export of over one hundred millions of dollars worth of breadstuffs last year above the ordinary; and still there is a comfortable supply left in the country, and, with the crop of this year, too much for the maintenance of the good prices of the winter and spring. -What sort of trading could we do with a country whose chief productions are the same as ours? And how would a trade between -two countries neither of which have any trading vessels worth mentioning be managed to tho special advantage of either one or the other of them) In an ordinary way opening np the ports of the Philippine Islands to the craft of the nations would be opening the way for the merchantmen of-other nations;, which now do the carrying trade, to carry it where it can be quickest and most profitably done. There are considerations which ought to weigh strongly against the proposition to take government control of the islands. They contain a population of seven and a-half mil- lions Malays. Chinese and savages, with a sprinkling oJ Spaniards, tur- bulont and uucoritrollablu stive by force. The Jeast possible foi^c to reaiulaiji peace on the islands, and make safe from depredation rhe en- torprises which might be ssartoii by capital from this country, would require a standing army larger than has been maintained in the United States for many years', prior to this war, and a considerable number of armed vessels. The cost of the civil government would also represent a very large sum. If the pecuniary advantages of possession were massed against the cost they would bo so inconsiderable that the stupendous sum remaining on the debtor side might well make us bait and seriously contemplate the smuuioi Aud we might well ask if we ca afford to contribute such large stun to the sort of civilization that fol lows an army of occupation 3 ? looks like a great price to pay fo a land peculiarly subject to volcani eruptions, typhoons, and earth quakes, and infested with a peopl among whom insurrection is chronic Thousands of visitors fioiis every part of Maryland and District of Columbia witnessed tho ceremonies attending the unveiling of tb3 Francis Scott Key monument on Tuesday in Mount Olivet Cemetery.Frcderick. The ceremonies were most impressive and the oration of Hon. Henry Wattersou was a grand tribute to tho author and tho flag: "Here a last he rests forever. Hcru at las hit. tomb is fitly made. When hi eyes closed upon the scones of this iii'e their last gaze behold the ensign of the republic 'full-high advanced its arms and trophies streaming in their original lustre, not a stripo erased or polluted nor a single star obscured.' " It is stated authoritatively that war debts amounting to one hundred million dollars have already been paid and that even though hostilities bo about over we will have to expend many millions more. Fifteen hundred thousand dollars a day is said to bo a fair estimate of the cost of the war. The First and Fifth Maryland Regiments will not see any active service in this war. The order for them to go, with other troops, to Porto Rico has been revoked. General Miles says he doesn't want anymore troops. ' The Prohibition Congressional convention for the First district is called to reconvene at Salisbury, September 6th, to nominate a candidate for Congress.

Even the shrewdest calculators among m a a u f a c l u i e i s come to d u l l periods in the year when they must "shut down their works/' much as they dislike it.

A PLAN NINE YEARS OLD. Ten years ago we made this discovery, and nine years ago we made some phitis, which we have worked upon successfully each year. It is an entirely different thing from an August sale of the odds and en'ds of the s t ? k . to «a!vjume business in m i d - s u m n i L i .

AT THE PRICE OF WOOD AWD WAGES You see the idea. It keeps to- gettiei and gives wages to the good workmen, and is a benefit, without a profit, to' the f u r n i t u r e makers. Nobody, so far as we know, does the same thing with f u r n i t u r e that we do, and our A u g u s t Trade Sale is arranged for months ahead. 78 styles A n t i q u e Oak Bedroom Suites--88 to S1G5-- The Ideal H y°« are going away on a vaca- Vacation tion and want to take a dress suit Suit -- a business suit and a suit for A Blue general knockabout use get a Serge Blue Serge and you have all in one.

The privilege of return pass at the. gates will bo eiu'iutmtly satisfactory to the patrous of. the Fair. The'people of this ·ounty should take an especial in-1 NEWSPAPER! About oue month ago my child, which is fifteen months old, had an attack of diarrhoea accompanied by vomiting, I gave it such remedies a.- fire fusm.lly given in such cases, b u t as nothing gave relief, we sent for a physician and it was under his cave for a week. At this time the child had been sick for About ten days and was having about tweury- five operations of the bowels every t w n n t y - f o u r Louis, and we were convinced that unless it soon obtained relief it would not live. Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy was recommended aud I decided to try it. I soon noticed a change for the bettor; by its continued use A complete cure was brought about and it is now perfectly healthy.--C. L. BOGUS. ·Stuuiptown, Gilmar Co., \V. Va.
