Monterey, Va., Friday, Jan. ,10 1903 Scarcity of Fuel lt saddens the heart to read the long story of suffering that is now being experienced in mnnv of the cities and towns of the North and We9t, because of the lack of coal. Actual suffering and death are tlie portion of many, because they have not fuel to heep them wann. So desperate is the situation at some places that train loads of coal ure being held up and confiscated. Should we not be thankful that we liye in a wooden country? Should not the little trouble with which we meet, when compared with such suffering, appear so insignificant that a word of complaint could not pass our lips? c 5. & P.

WWk of Private Detectives. Doqtless not one person in a^ thou ?WiiWy ^rect idea Of the character or Significance of this most singular outgrqWth of ultra-civilized conditions. The detective connected with the police department is complimented by the press whenever he captures a gang of thieves or discovers an incendiary, but with the private detective the case is different. Long before he embarks iq the business he must above all things, learn he den] himself the sweets ol praise and thc joys of fame. He must lay aside personal vanity, for his suc? cess lies not in forcing himself to the front, but remaining as much as pos? sible in the background. He need have no fear that customers will forget him, for, like a six-shooter, a private detec? tive is one of the things that, when needed, is required instanter?if not sooner. A modest sign, which the average well-behaved and well-condi? tioned person might pass every day for years without noticing, but which looms up as big as a barn to...
