City Contracts Illegal.
Richmond, Va., May 19. May
or D. C. Richardson and City At
torney H. R, Pollard to-day gave
their opinion to the city council
that city contracts, involving over
a million dollars, are void because
they were awarded by viva voca
vote of the council instead of by a
two-thirds vote of that body, re
quired by law. A curious teature
is that D. C. Richardson, as a law
yer, found out thatD, G. Richard
son, as mayor, made a mistake,
when he signed the ordinances
authorizing the work. The prin
cipal -public works held up until
the contracts can be made legal
are the $350,000 high school, the

The adjusters of the insurance

The carnival which wound up a
week's performance Saturday
night, is likely to be the last show
of its kind, at least for some time
to come. The firemen, under
whose auspices it held forth, lack
something like four dollars of
paying expenses, and of course
received no; profits at all.
The show was but poorly patron

in for attention and talk of in
dictment closed one such attrac

If your Stomach, Heart or Kid

doses only of Dr. Shoop's Restora
tive. In five or ten days only,
the result will surprise you. A
few centB will cover the cost. And
here is why help comes so quickly.
Dr. Shoop doesn't drug the Stom
ach, nor stimulate the Heart or
Kidneys. Er. Shoops Restorative
goes directly to the week and fail
ing nerves. Each organ has its
own controlling nerve. When
these nerves fail, the depending
organs must of necessity falter.
This plain, yet vital truth, clearly
tells why Dr. Shoop's Restorative
is so universally successful. Its
success is leading druggists every
where to give it universal prefer
ence. A test will surely tell. Sold

SOME OLD HISTORY.
Facte Worth Knowing in Connection With
the Southern Railway Company.
Investigation in the right of the
Southern Railway Company, to
use the property along its right of
way between Grehsboro and Dan
ville for double tracking purposes,
which right is now in litigation in
both the State and Federal courts,
Srings to-light tome interesting
facts, probably-trite many years
ago hut new, to the general public
The road was chartered in 1861,
and strange to say, originally pro
vided for a double 'track road,
something new in railroad con
struction in the South fifty years
ago. The road was built as a mili
tary necsssity to give the Confed
erate forces aha government forces
and government through commu
nication between the seat of the
government and its Southern ter
ritory. It was as such operated!
by tne uonieaerate government
during rhe war, and after the war
was over the United States govern
ment seized it as part of the effects
of the Confederate government and
it was operated by the Secretary
of the United States treasury. The
Richmond and Danville corpora
tion established its claim to the
property by showing tlpt it had
purchased and paid the Confeder
ate government every one of the
bonds of the road, paying full val
ue. Anotner interesting circum
stance is the fact that the Confed
erate government being oblid&red
to build this gap between Danville
and Greensboro and being unable to
procure rails, praceeded to oonfis
cate the rails on the road between
Clarksville, Va., and Henderson
ville, N. C completely disman
tling this road, and building with
the iron and other material the
imperatively needed link. A few
years after the war, the Richmond
and Danvil-e road laid new rails
from Clarksville, Va., along the
old route f r five miles south east,
making it part of the new road
now knov?n as the Oxford and
Durham. Within the last year
the balance of the old line of the
Clarksville and Henderson road
has been worked over by some cor
poration and rails are being or
have beoi laid via Townsend
church in Granville county, a dis
tance of 15 or 20 miles, thus after
fifty yea i s restoring a road which
for military necessities was dis
mantled i; early fifty years ago.

6ood Prospects for a Wheat Crop. A

The prospect for a good wheat

the time cotton was coming out of
the ground caused a large per cent,
of the plants to die in some in
W. P. Johnson, of Shiloh town
ship, has presented The Landmark
a specimen of "cobless corn"
grown on his place last year. The
ear or rather the receptacle that
holds the grains of corn grows on
the stalk where the ear usually
grows and is shaped somewhat like
a head of wheat or a large pine
cone. The affair is composed of
shucks and the grains of corn are
enclosed in little receptacles or
grooves of the shucks after the
manner of wheat or oats in the
head.' The entire ear is similar in
size to an ear of corn but not so
long. Mr. Johnson has not exper
imented with the corn sufficient-
ly to advise its cultivation. One
difficulty presented, if the yield
was sufficient to justify cultiva
tion, is in getting the grains
threshed from the mass of shucks.
A machine would have to be in
vented for the purpose., The corn
and shucks chopped up toother
would doubtless make good feed.
