There is no longer any prospect of a
substantial reduction in the. strength in

General Chaffee contain arguments
against any reduction of tho army at this
time, except as required by the expiration
of ennistments. As pointed out by Gen?

They Took Active Part in the Carnival Fua

(Special Dlspatch to Th? Times.)
LYNCHBURG, VA.. Oct. 19.?The col?
lege spirit at Randolph-Macon Woman's
College has in some degree, Dut reflect
ed the spirit of the city during the week.
The Carnival liberty has reached them,
tco, and oh Tuesday the college colors?
lemon and black?were almost as much
seen on the streets as the red, white
anu bitie. The greater part of the
girls watched the floral parade, went
to the tournament, waveu' ribbons, blew
horns, threw confetti, had confetti and
powder thrown on them, and came home
in the afternoon asserting that they
were by no means tired: had had a
"grand time," and "do hope they will
give us another day holiday."
The recitatlons of Wednesday morning
cannot bo be vouched fcr, but that it
was a d'ay of work was plainly to be
seen from the alu-red exoresslons that
graced the tables at breakfast time. In
steal of the anticipatory beaming. there
was a sort of reflectlve meditation de
picted on their faces, whose calm was
just a bit disturbed by doubts as to the
probability of their escaping a quiz.
? On the preceding Saturday night at one
of those delightful home-evenings which
come every two weeks during tho col?
lege year, the music faculty entertained'
the household with a musicale in the
chapel and afterwards with a receptkm
ln the parlors and curridors. The pro?
fessors furnished all tho music and- it
was most delightful, and was especial?
ly appreciated by the girls, who hear
thom so seldorn and have to be heard by
them so often. The reception gave a
high social tone that it would otherwise
have lacked, and the two together mado
a most charming evening.
On aionffay afternoon the Juniors and
Stniors, at the invitation of the latter,
went nutting. but owing to a most pe?
culiar prenomenon whereby some over
hanging clouds stripped the trees and
took the nuts upward before they could
get to them; all the nuts they got were
were sent beforehand. painted on their
invitations. The clouds inconsiderately
began to let down water instead of the
stolen nuts, and thoy were forced to
seek shetfer in a neighboring churcli,
where that non-musical English profes?
sor played gospel hymns on a small or?
gan. It is trudy wonderful what people
can be induced to do on picnics. Tlie
wagons returned at supper-time a mass
of bright-colored fall fdliage and the
shouts of "grand time!" sitrpassed even
those uttered after t'ne carnival.
Long waiks have become very much
the fashion among tlie girls here, and the
"mile and a half of walks lald out and
graveled within tlie canipus" does not
satlsfy them at all. Even the girls
irom .the flat fields of Georgia seem to
delight in climbing- the hills and the reg
lllar walk for them every afternoon is
five miles. lt cannot be prophesied what
the effect of this fancy wil! be on the
shoe trade or on the size of t'ne South?
ern girl's foot, but the effect upon their
faces is verv evident. Among many pret?
ty comp'.exions there are none prettier
than those of the walkers as they brisk
ly answer the supper gong at night.
There is a great deal of loyalty among
the R. M. W. C. girls, and even the faf
vorites of former year's do not find them?
selves so soon forgotten as would seem
probable. There has been a visitor this
week?a ' much-talkcd-of. long-expected
visitor-a favorite of some two or three
ytars?and it was quite an interesting
slght to watch the girls on her arrival.
