According to tin? popular conception,
the tielil for Irrigation is tin- arid or
teuiiaritl region in the west ami tloes
not extend to the liumiil oast, where
the supply of moisture is considered
FUtBcii'iit for tin: growth of erop. The
distribution of rainfall, however. Is so
uncertain that crops throughout the
east often suffer from droughts. With
out Irrigation eertain crops, such as
strawberries, celery ami caulillower,
may he entirely lost, lk'onomlcal and
successful iiielhods of irrigation adapt
ed to humid conditions are. however,
quite extensively used. August J.
i Washington, Nov. 5. Secretary
I Honaparte haa received a letter from
Mr. N. Darnell Davis, Auditor
i General of British Guiana, calling
attention to the date of December
111, 1900, us being the three hun
jdred and thirtieth anniversaiy of
i the sailing of the Sara Constant,
i Godspeed and Discovery from Bluck
1 wall, England, for Virginia, being
; the inception of the Etiglish colo
! nial enterprise in the United States.
1 Mr. Davis suggests that iu coni
; mcinonition of the event all vessels
I of the United States navy, whether
I at sea or in port, shall dress ship on
that occasion. Mr. Davis has al
' ready made the (suggestion in En
i glish newspapers that Great Britian
I recognize the birth of its "eldest
daughtei" ty a similar action on

Pntroua Object to the Outnitulou of the
Richmond is one of 12 cities in
the Union iu which the Govern
ment is testing the effect of omitting
the backstanip of letters, showing
the date and hour received at its
destination. The postmaster claims
that it materially assists in destribu
ting and delivering the mails, but
the order has been greeted by a
strong complaiut from the business
public. This stamp affords thetnily
means of lixing the blame for delays
in transmission, and such delays
have been by no means infrequent.
Promptness is desirable, but should
not be accomplished at tne expense
of other essential features.
The cry is for the backstanip on
all first class matters.

an interesting fox race:

What To Do.
There.is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilmer's
Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy,
fulfills every wish in curing rheumatism,
pain in the back, kidneys, liver, bladder
and every part of the urinary passage.
Jt corrects inability to hold water
and scalding pain in passing it, or bad
effects following use of liquor, wine or
beer, and overcomes that unpleasant ne.
cessity of being compelled to go often
during the day, and to get up many
times during the night. The mild and
the extraordinary effect of. 5wamp-Root
is soon realized. It stands the highest
for its wonderful cures of the most dis
tressing cases. If you need a medicine
you should ha-e the best. Sold by drug,
