The Shakespeare club, this city's
(.-lite literary organisation^ gave last
evening at Monteflore Hall, Its first
entertainment of the present season.
The affair was in the nature of a well
arranged muslcale, nut it possessed In
addition to the programme rendered
by the Mozart Chorus class, several
other charming features, including an
Informal dance and a very elegant sup?
per. It was possibly the most brilliant
event of the season. Certainly it was
thoroughly enjoyed In its every detail.
The beautiful hall within whose walls
It has long been the club's custom to
hold Its entertainments, was beauti?
fully decorated with evergreens, ferns,
and other potted plants, which added ]
a touch of verdure to the picture ?;i
silken color and animated flesh tlt.ts !
in the faces of beautiful women; a pic?
ture which under the Hashing lights
was one not readily forgotten.
Local society was present with full
ranks, reinforced by many visitors from
other places. The Shakespeiir'o enter?
tainments are too well known for their
?brilliancy In a social as well as a lit?
erary way. and there are loo few of
them during tho season for nny body la
miss a single one.
The reception committee lnst evening
consisted nf the following ladies: Mrs
W, Hone Kelly, Mrs. George Mein tosh,
Mrs. T. J. Randolph, Mrs. Mary Mn?l.
Mrs. W. T. Henderson, Mrs. R. H.
The programme rendered by the Mo
sari Chorus class, assisted by Misses
Lizzie Taylor, Alice Jones, and Ethel
Neely, was most beautifully rendered
Mrs. Pullen, directress of the Chorus
class, was tho recipient of many c
grattilatlons. Every number was beau?
tifully rendered, the strong chorus Of
forty girlish voices being Indescribably
sweet. The following programme was
"Faithful nnd True,".Chorus class
Bird Song.Chorus class
Spinning Song.Chorus class
"Ave Maria,"..Chorus and Miss Neely
?At -the conclusion of the muslcale
proper nn elepunt supper wns served.
u,fter which the Naval Post Rand fur?
nished music for nn informal dance.
The committee of managers, consist?
ing of Messrs. Wayne Chlldrey, R. E

reason 'to feel gratified n't the success
of the nfTnlr, and every member e.f

Norfolk nnd Baltimore are likely to \
experience sharp competition In an un
expecited quarter shortly. One or more
Southern ports will to nil appearances
be in position to make a strong bid
for grain export business. This has
been brought about by the purchase by
the Louisville und Nashville System of !
the Charleston and Western Carolina
railway. Trans-atlan'tio shipping
agents here say that this will probably
mean the erection of elevators at- Char?
leston, but they think that the shorter
huul to Norfolk and Baltimore will save
the grain trade of these ports from
In railroad circles the effect of this
extension or the- Louisville and Nash?
ville- System by a practically con?
tinuous line to the Atlantic coast is re?
garded as an event of far-reaching con?
sequences, adding a. powerful (actor to J
the development of the Southeast. A
prominent official expressed It thus:
"Tile forma-tlon of continuous lines
from the West to -the Southeast means
increasing competition between grain
routes lo South Atlantic and grain
routes Gulf ports, at the expense of jht
North Atlantic ports. There has been
within the past few years a large piv
poutlonntc- Increase of .shipments]
through Southern ports, and .the forma?
tion of a continuous line by the Louis
vlllc- and Nashville railroad from the
West to the Atlantic, will tend to ln
creaeo this competition with Gulf ports
and tho gain of Southern over North?
"These are the ultimate effects of
Stronger lines from the West to tf*.?
"The extent to which the Western
business cuts a figure with the railroads
of the South may be realized when It is
known that moat Important Southern
centres freight from the West has Ihr?
limes the tonnage of freight from the
Bast, and Mils is not all. or even half,
made up of grain, hay and hog pro?
ducts, as most people think. The mis
eellvineouis freight, oilier than these
items, nnd not Including Iran and
steel, about equals the miscellaneous
freight from ;the Bast. The proportion
of'Western tonnage to Eastern Is
steadily Increasing here, and this
change c?>mplelJng the Louisville nnd
Nashville's lino to the Atlnntic will tend
to accelerate the rate of increase."
VIRGINIA REACH ROAD'S RRANCH
Will Tap a Rich Territory?Small Aux?
iliary Steamers Will be Used.
The Virginia Reach road's, now
branch hns been graded for some <lls
tance from Kempsville, the junction
point. The company has bought the
Brock farm near 1 Mil's Landing and
will use that, for the accommodation of
the product traffic, for depot purposes
] and .switching. Another important fea?
ture will be the small steamers that will
ply through the sounds and between
the points of the shore, where fish and
produce are plentiful; and the terminus
of the road o4 Moss Point.
These small steamers will make regu?
lar trips and will act as feeders for
the road from points heretofore not
ton. lied by nny traffic boats. All of till
traffic from these points was conduct?
ed by private schooners. This was al?
ways slow and unsatisfactory, and
often it was unprofitable, too. Under
the contemplated plan, the communica?
tion will be regular and rapid. Perisha?
ble freight will b.^ handled so quickly
that It can lie put Into New York by
water In twenty-four hours, to Boston
In forty-eight hours nnd by rail to New
