Stonewall Band Concert. i
It is announced that the Stonewall
Brigade Band will appear in Grand
Concert at the Beverley Theatre, on
Friday evening, October loth. Thus
will be afforded to the people of this
city and county an opportunity to show
their loyalty to this historic organiza
tion in a substantial manner. As has
already been announced, the band has
recently procured an entire new set of
fatigue uniforms, which are said to be
the handsomest ever seen in this city.
Made of the best imported broadcloth,
and trimmed in silk mohair braid, sol
id.black, this uniform presents a very
handsome appearance. The band will
appear for the first time in this new
uniform on the occasion of this con
cert. This outfit of uniforms cost the
band about $700, which is now a debt
owing by the band, and this concert is
given to raise money to help liquidate
this debt. The program arranged for
this concert is said to be one of the
best ever played in this city; and the
fact that the Stonewall Brigade Band
propose to give one of their very best
concerts is a sufficient guarantee that
those who attend will amply get their
moneys worth. It is expected that a
packed house will greet the band on
The Baptist church was packed Wed
nesday night at nine o'clock to witness
the marriage of Mr. Frank H. Crafton
and Miss Fannie Lee Lushbaugh. The
ceremony being impressively perform
ed by the pastor, Rev. Dr. O. F. Gre
gory. Mr. R. L. Middlekauff presided
at the organ and rendered some appro
priate music, and at the hour named .
played Mendiesshon's wedding march.
The matron of honor was the bride's
sister, Mrs. Harry Crafton, and the
bride's maids were Misses Lillian
Menefee, of Waynesboro, Grace Kingle
of Norfolk, and Bessie Meade of this
city. The groom's best man was his
brother, Mr. Harry Crafton, and the
ushers wers: Hugh Crafton, Frank
Mathews and Cleveland Menefee. The
young people are both very popular
and made a handsome couple at the
bridal altar. A reception was given
the wedding party at the home of the
bride, after which the newly married
couple left for an extended tour north.
On their return they will make their
home in Staunton where the groom is
a rising young business man.

The Staunton Board of Trade has
passed the following resolutions com
;mendatory of the undertaking of
Messrs. J. W. and Chas. F. Bodley, of
a new factory in Staunton:
At a called meeting of the Staunton
Board of Trade held October Ist, 1909,
mention was made, before adjourn
ment, of the beginning of construction
work upon a new plant by our esteem
ed fellow townsman, J. W. Bodley,
and upon motion the following resolu
tion was adopted, and the Secretary
instructed to communicate the same to
him, and to the local press:—
Resolved: That this body desires to
express to Mr. J. W. Bodley and his son,
Mr. Charles F. Bodley, the friendly in
terest felt by its members, one and
I all, in the new industry which they are
inaugurating in this city, to be known
as the Bodley Manufacturing Compa
ny, and to operate in the vicinity of the
Putnam Organ Factory.
The names of these gentlemen, and
the record made here by the Bodley
Wagon Company under their manage
ment, are guaranty enough to our peo
ple that the present enterprise will be
conducted with the integrity, capacity
and energy; and we have every reason
to believe that the specialties they now
have in view, the manufacture of lum
ber trucks and of cane products, with
machinery adapted to the valuable pa
tents they hold, will bring them even
a greater measure of success.
I It seems becoming in the business
representatives of the city to do what
■take great pleasure personally in
ag, that is to extend a most cordial
come to these gentlemen and their
iciate, to congratulate the city
upon permanently claiming them and
their families as residents of Staunton,
and to hail the new venture with our
heartiest good wishes, and the assur
ance of all the assistance and encourage
ment in our power to give it.

The fire broke out over the boilers,

The building was a lour-story frame,

to the interior of the building and saved
the near-by buildings.

Dr. Jas. B. Angell, President of the
University of Michigan, retired
last Saturday, the 2nd, after a
long and honorable service. When Dr.
Angell was a young man, he and a
companion student took horses at Har
risburg, Pa., and rode through the
Cumberland Valley to Shepherdstown,
thence through the Valley of Virginia
to Staunton. Here they spent the
night and continued their journey on
to Charlottesville, where they stopped
to visit the University of Virginia and
the tomb of Jefferson. It was on that
trip that the beauties of the University
of Virginia were so impressed on Dr. \
Angell that when he began the con- i
struction of the University of Michi- j
gan he took as his pattern and model
our University. At the time of his
visit the tunnel through Rockfish Gap
| beyond Waynesboro, known as the
Blue Ridge tunnel, was just being built.
