Saturday afternoon the annual
onteet at Washington and Lee
Jniversity between the Sopho

ffilaon Athletie Field, and waa
vitnessed by a large gathering ot
ipeotatora. The victory was
iwarded to the Sophomores, al?
though they won by only a oloss
The contest last year was a
bowl fight, nnd consisted of a
struggle to place one of the Fresh*
men, known as the "bowl-man,"
in a large wooden bowl. This
year a large "medicine ball,"
about eighteen inches in diameter,
was used aud the rules regulating
the contest were in brief as fol*
lows, decided at a nesting of tbe
student body held Wednesday af?
ternoon, September 20tb:
The contest consisted of two
halves of fifteen and asven minutes,
respectively. Two linea marked
the limits of the respective con- j
testants, seven and one-half yards
apart. Midway between these
lines the ball was plaoed and be
fere the rush was made the ''ball
man," selected by the Freshmen,
had to step out from hia line five
yards and remain in view of his
opponents for thirty seconds. On
retiring the signal was given and
the fight was on. The first half
was an attempt on the part of the
Sopho motes to bring the bell in
contact with their opponents'
'?ball-man,"and ths attempt of the
Freshmen to advance their ??bell
m*n" beyond their opponents'
goal-line. Neither aide sucoeeded,
and the result of the first half wa*
declared a draw.
The second balf consisted of
eaeh side attempting to advance
the ball beyond its opponents' goal
line. Although both aides strug?
gled manfully, tbe bail wai
aoarcely changed from its first
position. When time was callee
it was found slightly in tbe terri
tory of the Freshmen, which gav<
the victory to the Sophomores.
The eorimmage was spirited ane
bard fought by botb sides, but li
ths very best humor. Barring i
few raeratches and the loss of som
olothir.g, no casualties were re
ported from the contest. Aboq
one hundred Freshmen and sixty
five Sophomorea participated. On

There are very few homes without some kind of Floor
Coverings. Certainly all need them. Carpets form a
large part of my business. I carry in stock at all time-, an
immense assortment, Yon can see just what you are
getting. No ordering by sample and waiting, probably
to be disappointed in the delay or in the goods. We
have Ingrains from 40 to 75 cents per yard. Have in?
creased the Brussel stock. Now carry a.beautiful line
of Brussels at 7Bete. No house anywhere sells them for
less and many houses get more for them You ought
to see this line. It is just as I tell you, the beat you
ever saw for ths money. Havo -so many Art Squares I
haven't room to show them. These mn from $4.50 up
to 13000 each. The latter very fine, (rood enough to
grace any parlor. There is nothing better for a cheap
covering than good Matting- It outwears, and looks
better for the money, than anything else made. Have
at all times, Winter and Summer, a nice stock of both
China and Japan Matting. Carry a big stock of Bugs,
Oil Cloths, and Linoleums. Have nome remnants of
Floor Oil Cloth, large enough for under Wash Stands
and Stoves at 20 cents a yard, worth 30. Let us show
you what we have in Carpets- It is an increasing busi?
ness with us. We want you to see what we are doing.
We feel tjiat it is helpful to a town to have a good Carpet
Department in it.
