TO BE PRESENTED
Interesting Exercises Will Be
Held at Lancaster on Third
Monday in July.
[Special to Tho Tlmes-Dlspatch.]
Lancaster, Va., June 22.?Tho thirfl
Monday In July promises to be an
Interesting occasion for those who
shall attend the session of the Cir
cuit Court of Lancaster on that day;
for there will he presented to the
County of Lancaster, through the Cir
cuit Court, a splendid olil portrait ot
Colonel James Gordon, out> of the moat
distinguished citizens of this county
during the latter half of tho eigh
teenth century. The portrait to On
presented was painted by Miss Adele
W lllirims, of Richmond, and has been
pronounced by competent critics to bo
a genuine work of art.
Colonel James Gordon, of Lancaster,
was a notable man in his day, being
a vestryman of Christ Church, a mem
ber of the old county court, and clerk
of the court from 17S7 to 17tM. lie
was of Scotch-Irish descent, and pos
sessed In a high degree the distln
truishint; virtues of that wonderful
race of people. He was the father-in
law of the Rev. James Waddell, the
blind preacher. Immortalized in Wirt's
"British Spy," and also the maternal
grandfather of General William Fitz
hugh Gordon, of Albemarle, being a
representative of his district in *Con
gress, and author of the subtreasury
act, which Is still a part of our na
tional financial policy. Many distin
guished descendants of Colonel James
Gordon are still living In Virginia, and
it is expected that a goodly number
of them will be here when the por
trait of their honored ancc-stor Is to
he unveiled and presented to tHe coun
ty of Lancaster. Among the members
of the Gordon clan who have prom
ised to attend are Mr. and Mrs. 11.
M. Smith and their sons, Hiram and
Gordon, of Richmond; James \V. Gor
don and Dr. William S. <>ordon, ot
Richmond, and the Ron. Armlstcrtd C.
Gordon and hia daughter, of Staun
ton. it Is expected that the picture
will he presented by II. M. Smith, or
Ri> hmond; that ArmisteaJ C. Gordon
will deliver an original poem. and
that His Honor Judge T. P. B. Wright
will accept the portrait on behalf of
the County of Lancaster.
It is the intention of the reception
committee to take the visitors to
"Vervllle," th^ home of Colonel James
Gordon. from the front of whose
(luaint old Colonial mansion one com
mands a splepdid view of the Coroto
rnnn River and tno surrounding coun
try. The party v. ill also be taken to
tho site of the old "Lancaster Meet
ing House." where Jam-s Wa<mell. tho
blind preacher, organized and minis
tered to the first Presbyterian congre
gation in the Northern Neck of Vir
ginia, atul whore Colonel James Gor
don worshipped and served as ruling
elder of tho congregation.
It was hoped that venerable Addi
son Waddell. of S'aunton, a direct de
scendant of Colonel Gordon and the
Rev. James Waddell, formerly clerk
of the Supremo Court at Staunton, and
author of the "Annals of Augusta
County," would be able to attend and
tak r~ part in the exercises, hut. his
advanced age and bodily infirmity
will prevent him from bc-iifg present.
He is nearly ninety years old.

The foundations of the family for

Will Compton, a son of Henry VIII.'s
favorite gentleman-ln-waiting, to
Elizabeth Spencer, the only daughter
and/heiress of Sir John Spencer, Loril
Mayor of London. Will Compton was
so notorious a scapegrace that when
[ he fell In love with the girl, the Lord

bado him tho house In nowise dis

himself as a baker's apprentice, car
ried off his inamorata concealed in a
baker's basket on his shoulders, and
married her bc-foro her father had
tlmo to interfere. Sir lohn began by
disinheriting his daughter, but was
induced by Queen Elizabeth to bocomo
reconciled to her, and when he died
he left her hi3 great fortune, which
was estimated at ?5,000,000, a colossal
sum in those oays. Its -imount seem

eight centuries, and have furnished

number of years colonel In command
of the SwIjs Guards at tho Vatican,'

I would probably have been appointed
to succecd him on his retirement, lu

from Roman Catholics In Switzerland.
Most of them are men of good fain

for the purpose of fulfilling what they
j bellevo to be the traditional duty.ot

I nlost favorable conditions the various
branches of art and literature in the
Vatican itself, and a Is > beyond the
papal borders, in the city of Home.
To them is Intrusted the guardianship
of what may be described as the fron

Tarrytown, N. Y., .Tune 22.?John D.
Rockefeller is still economising. Whllo
playing golf with somo friends In the
early spring, one said:
"Mr. Rockefeller, why don't you buy
about 400 sheep and let them feed on
your lawn, and in that way you would
save the cost of cutting the grass, and
i besides the sheep would keep It in
j condition always'.'"
"How much would they cost?" he
The friends replied about $f> apiece,
making an expenditure of about J2.400.
"Oh, that's too much." answered Mr.
Rockefeller, and the matter dropped.
The idea did not drop with Mr.
! Rockefeller, however, and he went
i back to tho house and started figuring
I the cost of his big motor lawn mowers
land the cost of tho sheep, and found
out that his friend's suggestion was
an economical one; so lie placed an
order for -100 Southdown sheep. To
day the last load of sheep arrived at
Pocnntico Hills, and they are eattng
