AFTER GOLD SEEN IN A DREAM.
There Is lady living near the Seaboard
J Air Line round "house that for live con?
secutive night? dreamed that there was
j a pot of money buried on the side of a
I portion of 'til old trolley which runs
through tho Seaboard Air Line prop?
erty Just side of the round house. She
claims that the spot was revealed to her
and if she would get some one to dig
there she would find the money. She
notified a gentleman of her dream, and
the two went to the place and went to
.work. They had .-uicceeded in digging a
hole large enough to bury a horse and
! cart when the owners of ?the property
made them slop and fill It up. The
Virginian reporter went there yesterday
and saw a nun' .- of boys hanging
around 'the hole uxniously awaiting for
the money to come out of the ground.
The lady is f-till of the opinion to-day
that she could lind the money. It may
be an insane idea, but she does not
speak In a manner which would lead
one to think that she is the least de?
mented. It would do no harm for the
owners of the property to allow her to
have Mift place dtlg and. should she
find money, divide with them.
IT HE IN SOUTH PORTSMOUTH.
Yesterday morning, shortly after 11
o'clock, Officer Shannon discovered the
roof of house No. 507 Firs: street on fire
near the dormer window. He Immedi?
ately went to box 42, which Is on the
corner of Nemey and First streets.
The tiox refused to work. He then
phoned lo tho Independent Engine
house for the engine, and then phoned
the station house. The hook and ladder
?and Virginia both responded. As soon
as the truck arrived a ladder was thrown
up to the roof, and with the aid of an
axe the tire, which was under the
shingles, was reached. It was put out
with a few buckets of water. The en?
gine did not take water. The house i.-i
owned by Mr. We?: Roid's estate, and I?
used as a cook shop by a colored woman.

TROUBLE IN THE) CHURCH.
At a regular business meeting of Cal?
vary Baptist Church, Scottsvllle, held
Friday night, the deacons of the church
were asked to resign, no charges being
preferred, but simply for the good of tho
church. The whole trouble seems to be
centered on the resignation of the pas?
tor, Rev. P. S. C. Davis, which was ten?
dered last Sunday at the morning ser?
vice, but which was not accepted, by a
majority vote. It seems to bo the Im?
pression of t'ne majority of the members
that the deacons were Instrumental In
causing Mr. Davis to act In the matter,
and in his absence the weight of the
disapproval feM on the deacons.
Just what tfio~DUtcpme will be cannot
be told until Mr. Davis returns from bis
?trip to Pennsylvania.
