There was ? little spirit of county
rivalry between the two counties, und
?omo wagers were laid as to which of the
candlduibn would capture the most 'voted
In their opponente county. In this Mr. Lee
was also the w.nner. Of the CI4 votes cast

There ha? been much comment and
contention between citizens of Amelia
over tho manner of conducting the oleo
Uon in that county. Criminations and re?
criminations have been made and pub?
lished, and the statements of some have
been charged as faUe by utliers, Bo
animated did thin become that neutral
friends were forced to Intercede and en?
deavor to adjust tho differences and mill
understandings. What the result of this
arbitration has bcon or will be Is not
known at this time, but It 1? hoped by the
friends of both sides that an amicable
solution may be arrived at.
In the primary for county officers In
Amolla, Messrs. Oeorgo K. Taylor, for
treasurer, and W. E. Coloman, for sheriff,
had no opposition; for Commonwealth's
Attorney, Mr. l?ardaway, the present In?
cumbent, was opposed by Mr. Marvin

There were twenty-six deeds of bargain
and sale of real estate recorded In tho
clerks' office of Nottoway county during
the month of September. These do not
include trust deeds nor contracts, but
only those of outright sale. This Is about
the averago por month and shows how
activo real estate is in this county.
It Is not thought that there has been
a single sale of real estate In this coun?
ty for tho past soveral years In which
the seller did not get out of It all he
had In It. and In many Instances nearly
all, In fact, a handsome profit. This
Is specially true of sales In this town.
As an ovldence of how property has
advanced here recently is the fact that
of one of tho two vacant lots left In the

The new play, "Tho Favor of tho
Queen," with Percy Haswell In the load- ?
Ing role, will bo the only attraction of
this week at the Academy. The eriga ge?
mein is for Saturday, matinee and night.
Of the Initial production, the Baltimore
American's critic said:
The general interest which has been
aroused among local theatre-goers by tho
production of the prize play, "The Favor
of the Queen," at Ford's, by the George
Fawcett Company, was attested last
night by tho fug audience assembled, and
shown by the people- to "The Favor of
the Queen," and retired, but tho audience
was not satisfied until Miss Haswell, too,
made a speech, In which she modestly
gave all the credit for the success of tho
performance to tfco author.
The langur.go has an easy and rythmlo
flow, and while at all tirnps maintaining a
high poetic level, some of tho speeches
are strikingly beautiful, while tho love
scenes are exquisite.
Miss Haswell, as the? lively girl, mas?
querading as a boy, has one of tho best
parts in which she has been seen here,
and she acted it with a dash. Ufo and

substantial Indorsement with the public.

plays have occurred each season at the

Initial appearances, In "Tho Christian."
"In the Palare of tho King" and "The

success, she was naturally desirous that
