passenger steamer ls laboring very dan?
gerously near to shore with a terrifia
gale from the northeast fighting her
efforts to make the offing.
Of tho large ocean-going coal barges,
Ocean Belle and George, nothing Is now
left except miles of wreckage on tho
ahore, and of the crews that manned
the former, the fate of only five is
known. Captain George Adame and Sea?
man Charles Peters are drowned, while
Joseph Peters, Peter Lopez and M. Payne
owo their lives to the heroism of Seaman
Charles Capps, of Life Saving Station
No. '?. All these men were on the Ocean
Belle, and when this barge was dashed
aahore the waves swept her decks cleur
of rigging and crew. Capps plunged
successfully Into tlio raging surf and
after desperate struggles brought all
three men to land. Tho fate of the Geor?
gia's crew is unknown, but little hope
ls held for their safety. Both barges
wero in tow of the Richmond, and the
tug Is missing.
ACTS OF HEROISM.
The three masted schooner Nellie Vf.
Howlett, Captain Gheem, lumber laden
from Per.sacoln, Is a total wreck on the
coast, threo miles from Dnm Neck Mills.
Captain Gheem and his crew of six men
are safe at the station, but their rescuo
was fraught with acts of bravery on
the part of the life savers. Four at?
tempts were made to launr.h the surf
fcoat and thus teach tho ship, rapidly
pounding to pieces on the beach, but
each endeavor was repulsed by tho sea.
The surf guard then, v.\S>. double,
chargrs of powder In the gun, succeeded
ln dropping a lino over "the vessel, and
one by ono tho crew was hauled ashore
through the surf.
Tho four masted barile Ocean Belle
was well nigh broken up? when the life
eavers discovered her. Four men who
came ashore said that the captain was
washed overboard and drowned. His
name Is unknown.
The crow of the Ocean Bello had to
seek refuge in the rigging, from which
they Were finally washed.
Two Norfolk lads, Richard Cooke, son
of Hon. Merrltt Cooke, and Robert Tuck?
er, son of Rev. Beverly D. Tucker, aided
the Ufe savers at risk of their lives In
getting the half-dead survivors ashore.
It was necessary to wade far out Into
the angry surf to rescuo them.

they had been wrecked.
Early this morning, the Weather Bu?

LYNCHBURG, VA? Oct. 10.-The
Lynchburg Horse Show came to a close
to-nlght. The last events wero perhaps
the most Interesting of the entire se?
ries, for in several of them only winners
of first prizes were allowed to participate,
and this naturally made the contest for
honors very close. Horses, drivers and
riders were In tho best of spirits. When
the last note of tho Marine Band, which
furnished music for tho show, died away,
and the big arena became deserted, only
one opinion was expressed, and thnt was
that the Horse Show of 1003 had been
a tremendous success. Once again the
events of the closing performance poured
additional honors upon Mrs. John Ger

It is notable that Lynchburg horses
have been much more numerous this

year or'two of horse shows, Lynchburg
will hnve a lot of horses that will stand

PELVIC catarrh Is a phrase coined
large class of diseases that used
by Dr. Hartman, covering all that
to be known as female weakness. The
lower portion of the atoaomen Is called
by anatomists the pelvis. The organs
contained in this portion of the body nre
known as tho pelvic organs. There are
several of them, very delicate and very
subject to catarrh. Few women escapo
entirely catarrh of these organs. While
each case presents somo minor difference
as to detail, they are nil In reality nllko.
Pelvic catarrh, thererore, is a gynerlo |
term that covers all cases of catarrh of
the pelvic organs. There Is no cure equal
ln promptness and permanency to a
short course of Peruna.
Peruna does not relieve these cases by
temporarily mitigating some symptoms,
but by a removal of the cause. Many a
woman cnn testify that a local treat?
ment does not permanently curo. A
large multitude of women are constantly
going from doctor to doctor to receive
