of property of that in the shape ot city lots Virginia Citl in values created by human effort This pest according to the estimate of the Department of Agriculture caused a loss in the United States last year In grain alone of $100000000 while the total damage It wrought may reach thrice that sum or nearly a million dollars a day exceeding the total tire loss It is true that the rat is to some extent a fertilizer and a disintegrator of soil but modern ap pliances have rendered that natural sen ice to the farmer far lv than machinerj' continues the gle for existence even if has progressed beyond battle with the beasts of forest The war is not because it is with the foe may be contemptible but it can not be ignored Ths ravages of the rat are only an example Myriads of smaller foes in all the gap between the grub and the insect prey upon the substance produced by human toil and make war upon health and life In its fight against these wastes as well as against the microbes of disease civil ization wages the war that knows no truce but hand for progress vations of trlbution to the conservation of life and property that is as far beyond estimate as It Is removed from popu lar appreciation They reveal foes that are not to be despised because their attacks are Insidious" Special Prices Thin Week dining tables at Peoples urniture healthy leaf of a tree made its the leaves

will Hout on a zephyr breeze a distance of a hundred yards and will attach to any twig In its path way The pest would be hard to com bat for the reason that the leaves upon which the worms gather or are hatched from eggs curl up and pro toot tho insects and the lluid of a spray would not reach them Owing to the provision of nature for mat tering pest it may in a few years be very disastrous for already It is apparent that In order to save tho maple trees some insecticide must be used When there comes a puff of wind around the tree there Is a reproduc tion of a snow squall and the ground under the tree becomes thickly cov ered with the down This may be one of the pests common to tho other sections but it is something new to this Some Idea of the ravages of the Insect pests in this country may be gathered from the following from the Washington Herald: is the little wastes that count In the aggregate more than the oc casional Isrgo extravagances It Is the vermin of the earth that destroy more wealth and that wage more ef fective warfare upon the well being of mankind than do all the raging lions and stealthy tigers of tho wild erness The productiveness of civil ization1' pays Its heaviest tolls almost wttbln its own thitshold Where the cobra strangles Its hundreds or lives the despised rat destroys Its millions What It Would Mean When the Anti Saloon League threatens the cities of Virginia with state wide prohibition it is charitable to believe that the members know not what a Pandora box of evils it would open upon the poor old state The condition ot affairs which exists in Montgomery Savannah and other cities subject to state wide prohibi tion be in in other cities of Virginia under state wide prohibition Is there sufficient reason to believe that the conserva tive and liberty loving people of Vir ginia will vote to bring about such a condition of affairs as state wide prohibition has produced elsewhere? The people of the rural districts have in the Mann law all the prohibition they can have in state wide prohibi tion and they will not vote for state wide prohibition merely to force pro hibition upon the cities against the wishes of the people of those cities Petersburg Index Appeal With the State Press TOO Colonel enhontas and in a man he said he was to think of retiring Since his recent big sale to the Big Vein Pocahontas Company there has been much speculation among his friends as to what he would do and many of them have suggested that he buy a home in Richmond Norfolk or Washington and njoy life Colonel Drowning said that such a life would not be attractive to him Ills ac quaintance in either of those cities would be limited and ho much pre ferred the society of bls lifelong friends Besides he could not think of retiring from business His fa ther Jesse Browning of Washing Brotherhood Mercantile Co master In the art of railroad build ing but ho forgot that the law of com pensation applied to him did not realize that In the acquisition of great wealth that he must pay the expense which must of necessity be great It did not dawn upon him that exaction would come in the form of a forfeiture but it did and now in a voice scarcely carries across the the sitting room" he declares he is to quit" But it is too late Nature demands her of flesh" and it must be paid field less But arguments from Judge Mann or any other per son the people of the old Tenth dis trict well know that Mr Tucker would never have been defeated gressional nomination In rable canvas if he had the popular bandwagon the party leaders did of the Tenth district also remember well how Mr Tucker acted when put to the test His own words at the Amherst convention still ring in their ears ride In wagon now a for governor met the same test? He has been brought face to face with the test several times in his long ca reer as an officeholder We can now refer to only one instance: or years and years he was counsel for the Norfolk and Western Railway Com pany Judge Mann says that during those years he rendered no services whereof a minister of the gospel need be ashamed A few years ago there arose in this state a great "howl" against the railroads Judge Mann was already a candidate for governor Instead of continuing his high and honorable relations with the Norfolk and Western Hallway he resigned This he had a right to do But what reason did he give for doing It? It is this: position as counsel for the Norfolk Western Railway was being In other words it rendered him less popular Will the judge abandon any position or a stand upon any question in order to gain popularity? Is his position on the matter to tie determined by the of popularity? That seems to be test which he has marked out himself Amherst Progress 2000 miles Va to Cincinnati and Co Ohio: Norfolk to Bristol church for stay away It things they them It is women and to preach to men or may not enjoy the furbelows of rhetoric men unquestionably do not To say that men do not attend church is to say that the church has lost force Bring back the fire of Savonarola the conviction of Luther' the power of Knox and the men will crowd to thu churches reason for this was for a puzzle but it is now fullv It is because red clover with ail other leguminous the power through the agency of certain bacteria which at tach themselves to the roots to ab sorb and utilize the freo nitrogen of the atmosphere Tho writer believes that if the agri culture of this beautiful Piedmont country could bn generally placed upon a correct scientific basis it would contribute much to the financial pros perity of this whole region WILLIAM NESBIT VERY COMMON OLKS The reading public hast been given nauseous dose of the dally life of Bome very common folks in the print id records of the Gould divorce case now in progress i It is not pleasing to accept the tes tlmony of the servants of a household In proving tho character of the wo man who presides over it especially when the testimony has been intro duced at the instance of the husband but it is clearly fhown that Mrs Gould Is a female sot a state of depravity foreign 'to the standards of woman hood1 as they are known In the South A female sot would be socially outlaw ed south of the line of Mason and Dixon and all of millions could not secure for the debauchee an entree to respectable social cir ties Disparage as we may the the claims of birthright sneer at the man or wo man who lays an abundant store upon the blood in his or her veins the spe cial instances of exhibited common ness and gentility are so convincing that it is impossible to escape the reasonable conclusion that gentility is an heriditary trait This is convinc ingly shown in the case of Mrs Gould Bhe is simply a type of the very corrf mon folk and her proper place is (Where Gould found her behind tho curtains ot a gaycty theater doubtless dreamed that he garnish her glaring defects magic touch of gold but he is championing popular measures and his ears are ringing with popu lar applause wp cannot measure the sincerity of his ideas nor his faith fulness to the dictates of his con science But when the time comes as usually It will In the lives of all such men that the popular view of a great question does not coincide with his view and then if he speaks the honest convictions of his heart he is met with a voice and perhaps a vote of disapproval from his constit uents then it is that we get the meas ure of the real man Such was the test to which II St George Tucker now candidate for the 'Democratic nomination for governor was subject ed in 1896 The free silver question is now no longer a live issue despite statements and THE AND TARI MAKERS Soma of our exchange are still making much ado about the attitude of Southern senators and congress men upon the' tariff but the criti cisms are desultory and like unto the Virginia gubernatorial 'umpalgn are Secidedly indifferent To those uncompromising journal uhfch are religiously oppusgd to a protective tariff the fact that much of the demand for a down ward" comes from nominally Hepub Jlcan Democratic rep resentatlves are voting for protection1s enough the I it Inferable that these representatives are confessing by their sets that there is no longer a Deino tratlc party?

To say the least what Is left of it is a dwindling organization and a considerable number of votes and officials So it would appear that tho only Democratic dectrine left alive is tho famous dictum of Hancock that tariff is a local issue" The constitutional duty of revising the tariff rests on Congress and this Congress was elected for the express purpose of revising the tariff The ex act position of each candidate for Congress was well understood by his constituents and the result was that the Congress was chosen almost whol ly of high tariff protectionists The failure of the Democratic party to ad here in Congress to its platform is probably due to the fact that prac tically the only Democrats who suc ceeded in getting elected were those who repudiated their platform before election So the people voting for congressmen practically instructed Congress to pass a high protection bill But President Taft was elected on a revision downward promise This he openly advocated In fact every Ite publiean president in recent years has advocated such revision It will be remembered that I President Mc Kinley's last speech delivered the day he was shot was a plea for lower du ties And yet McKinley was the lead ing protectionist in America Presi dent Roosevelt was an avowed tariff reformer and was practically gagged ly Congress which compelled him to stand pat on the tariff Jn order to get other reforms which he regarded as more urgent And President Taft Is a downward revisionist and owes many of the votes he received to that policy It sounds like a Joke to say it that while the people believe in tariff re form they will beat anybody who tries to give it to them There is no way of getting tariff reform down ward out of any may elect This the people and aware that a big to support our government and that the practical way of raising that rev enue is through the imposition of a tariff In fact they have come to the belief that the great prosperity which this country enjoys is primarily due to our tariff They may as political partisans declaim in favor of free trade talk of a for revenue only" but when it comes down to the casting of their votes in favor of mak ing the practical experiment courage falls them An Ideal Hot Weather Ginger Ale BECKER offers a refreshing drink tor this sold at mestic the for some CREDIT TO WHOM CREDIT IS DUE The broad policy of the Norfolk Western Railway which has led to such extensive accomplishments throughout Southwest Virginia and West Virginia can hardly be appreci ated without going back about thirty years and

have had a fair opportunity to see the development of this great road since 1881 We only have space to mention a few things this great corporation has done since that time and the same de gree of development may be said of all our great roads of the country I desire to say a few words about tho develop ment of Virginia and West Virginia which has been accomplished In tlie last 25 years the

of the Soil? In a former communication writer called attention to the that long continued cultivation cording to the methods commonly adopted by American farmers results in a great depletion of the original stores of fertility which our soils possessed when they first came under cultivation and also In seriously in juring their mechanical condition The practical question now arises "How can the lost fertility be restor ed and the mechanical condition of the soil lie Agriculture owes to tho investiga tions that have been made tiy chemi cal science the complete knowledge we now possess of the constituent ele ments which enter into all vegetable substances We also know iith cer tainty the sources from which these elements are derived By far the greater part of all vegetable sub stances is derived from the air and from water But the soil supplies an indispensible part It is tlie soil con tribution which most concerns tho practical farmer Artificial fertiliza tion of soil takes note of four sub stances or ingredients and four only These are combined nitrogen phos phoric acid potash and lime Com bined nitrogen can lie obtained by di rect purchase either in the form of sulphate of ammonia or of nitrate of soda But in these forms it is ex pensive It can also be purchased in commercial fartillzers in which it is a constituent of raw bone blood and all other animal stances used in compounding It may also be obtained in tho from tobacco factories and cotton seed and linseed oil mills Potash can b'e purchased either In the form or sulphat or of muriate or the regeneration of the class of soils commonly found in Piedmont Virginia North and South Carolina if a little time be allowed it will not bo necessary to purchase cither com bined nitrogen or potash irst of all there should be an application of burned and air slaked lime spread on the surface very evenly and harrow ed not plowed in It should not ex ceed in amount more than 40 bushels per acre If the field experimented with is notably thin and exhausted it would bo better to use gypsum (sul phate of lime) instead of burned lime applying 500 pounds to the acre with a fertilizer drill Lime when applied judiciously affects the in various ways It sets up cer tain chemical reactions in the soil which result in the release of potash from its insoluble silicate combina tions It changes the character of the soil from an acidic to a basic con dition It greatly promotes the growth and multiplication of nitrifying bac teria in the soil All fertile soils teem' with these low forms of life and their presence seems to be essential to any high degree of fertility Probably nearly all these Pied mont lands are now more or less de ficient in phosphoric acid If so it can only be supplied by direct pur chase i How can combined nitrogen tho most expensive element in commercial fertilizers one which was abundant in tlie humus of the virgin soils but which Is now depleted almost to ex haustion in some of these soils in this region be most economically re stored to soil?
