It is not our purpose to question n simplo Rtatomeut made by Mr. Switzer in his published interview in this morning's Daily News on Increased Telephone Rates. But we should like to call attention to some important omissions in that interview. He does not state the amount of capital originally Invested by his company in the Harrisonburg system, nor its present value, but simply that every cent made in the business so far has been put back into the bnsiness. Suppose that is so, and that the company started with a capital of 93,000 three or four years ago, and, by patting ' 'every cent made in the bnsinesB back into it," the system has grown to be worth 98,000 or |10,000 now, is not that profit enough ? It is believed that the Telepliouo Company started a few years ago with a comparatively small capital, and, so far as Mr. Switzer's interview tells us, nothing but the receipts of the bnsiness have been added to maintain and extend it. It is now woith many times what it was then. Mr, .Switzer tolls us what the rates are in Lexington, Staunton and Winchester, but does not tell us the amount of capital invested nor the profits thereon. 100 per cent raise in 10 months is pretty steep.

There are, however, a number of person ill in Plains district, in this county, who are ovi-dontly snfrcriuR from the disease. The parties thus effected live in the neighborhood of iAeclkanlcAvlUo. lu each instance, thus far they are sulTer-ing with such a mild form of the disease that possibly It might almost have passed unrecognized had it not been for the fact that many clearly defined and well-develo])od cams exist in a nearby locality in Shenandoah County. Tlio physicians who have seen the Rockingham cases have taken every precaution possible to prevent any spread of the disease and in this they will bo heartily seconded and aided by the county board of hnalth, which is alert to the situation. Unfortunately the Shenandoah authorities seemed slow to recognize the fact that smallpox existed in their county. As a result Lee district, which is on the western side of the county, is badly infected. It has been said that so far no deaths have resulted from the epedimic, but this is now thonght to be a mistake and it is believed that at least two persons died of smallpox and were buried in Lee district before any one dreamed the disease existed there. One of the physicians living not far from the line between Booklugham and Shenandoah is now down with the disease, as are several of his household. Vaccination is being largely resorted to in Plains district. It is to be hoped that our people generally will follow the example set by the people of Plains and not wait until it is too late. Cole Younger Pardoned. St. Paul, Feb. 4.-Cole Younger, who was paroled from the Stillwater, Minn., penitentiary two years ago, with his brother Jim, will bo given a conditional pardon today by the State pardon board, which will admit of the former bandit returning to his former liome in Missouri. Warden Wolfer, of the Stillwater prison has reoommeuded a full pardon. The board, however, will make the pardon conditional. Younger probably will be ordered never to return to Minnesota, and his movements will be restricted in many ways. His health is not  good, and he will go south at once. ------- "Electricity." David Belaaoo says the future of poetry in sight upon the stage is no longer a subject for the dreamer, but for the practical man who observes what is going on about him in the fields of art and science, and who has wit and discretion, backed to ability to adapt the world's great achievements to his own uses. "Read in the light of recent accomplishments themselves,'' saya Mr. Belasoo, "the lino of development in stage effects during the half century may be determined with considerable certainty. "Electricity," he adds, "using the term in its broad sense, has at last been discovered for the stage. Where Edison developed it as a science the stage is now developing it as an art. It has passed from the hands of the engineer into those of the poet. "And by electricity the itoet of light now made to picture on the stage thoughts not to be described--to realize impreasiona that mere words or scenes could not suggest. In ' Dn Barry' Mrs. Lelie Carter rides to the guillotine through flakes of falling snow-light, feathery, airy-all but real. The effect is gained by lights. In the 'Darling of the Qoda' are ahowu a river of sulphur, the murky flames of purgatory and banks of lazy, drifting clouds-perfect in their illusion, yet all made by an original nao of the electric oaloium.'' FROI BETILBIill. D, Q, DEVIKR, Jeweler, A Wedding in Prospect. Mr. L. H.

Hinton, Feb. 4.-Last evening while Mr. Robert Long, of Clover Hill section, waa coming home from Harriaonburg hia horae ran away at Liakey's Hill and broke hia buggy to pieces, throwing Mr. Long out and cutting a gaah in hia head. Mr. Long was jarred up considerably. One of our fiahermeu, A. R. Zirkle ia catching nice atrings of flah. There ia very little sickness in onr immediate section. West of thia place there ia a great deal of grippe, colda, etc. Or. Turner lias been called home on account of hia child being sick. Miaa Lacy Zirkle is better again.

Iill wore good, but several selections worthy of special mention. Two \l solos by Miss Shaver .wore cx-Isitely sweet and charmingly rnn-Tfid. An iufltrnmontal solo by Miss itia Boar and also one by Miss thel Bnrtner woro Imth beautiful id were executed with much skill >nd taste. Little .Tossie Wamplor, ly eight years old, oharniod the andionco and won from thoni a prolonged applause, as hor almost baby flngors drew from the key a swoot and tender'melody. Another ploaH-iog feature of the program was the recitations. Miss Yadn Funk and Miss Primrose fioery measured up to their usual high standard, and Mr. W. A. Flick, in his happiest mood, gave us a vivid picture of tho boy who "just Iwforo Xmas is as good as ho con be." Prof. Dingus, as master of ceremonies, announced tlio various parts of the program and at its close thanked the andionco in Miss Shaver's iiarao, for their presence and for tho appreciation shown by thom. Having been ontortaiuod thus far with a mental foast, there woro none so esthetic in taste as not to ro-ceivo with ploasnre tho announcement by Prof, Dingnsthat they would bo further entertained in tho dining room, where delicious refreshments were served by the members of the music class. We wish West Central in all Its departments abounding success for the future. Swartz Bros. & Hott have now on baud cotton seed feed and flax seed meal. m. Latona News.

An Outraged Pup lie. The condition of our public roads at present is an outrage upon the traveling public. With all of tlie boasted advancement of the present era, the aubjeot of better public high-waya haa been mostly neglected. Had it been posaible for theorizing to have improved thom, long ere this time wo shonid have been enjoying the best road ayatem on earth. The eloqaenoe tliat has been waated and the printer's ink that has been sacrificed on the aubjeot could scarcely be computed, and atill we plongh onr way through almoat impaasable roads from December to April annually. The time has arrived for talking to cease and work to begin. Wlio, among the taxpayera of onr county, would object to paying a few dolUra extra road tax for a period of five yean?
