THE^iNHWS FROM VIRGINIA CONTINUED FROM PAGE TEN
THE MONTGOMERY WHITE.
NORFOLK FEOPLiO AT THIS POP?
Montgomery White Sulphur Springs,
Va.. Aug. 18.?Surely this has been the
most successful season, socially, that
this historic old place can boa3t of In
many a year. Our genial manager, Mr.
W. S. Ayres, leaves nothing undone
that will add to the pleasure and en?
joyment of his guests.
The mountains o? dear old Virginia
never looked more stately than they
now appear. Their tups are covered
with massive oaks, chestnut and cedar
trees, which look like pigmies from the
distance, yet when we climb to where
they are our admiration knows no
hounds, and we are compelled to admit
the sights most enchanting, and which
verse is only capable of picturing.
Down in the valley runs a beautiful
?livery stream, and as the glorious sun
Shines upon It ns It dashes over the
Impeding rocks It looks like so many
Jewels sparkling in the distance. To?
day It Is quiet, hnrdly a ripple, save
?where the obstructions arg. Rut after
a storm It Is likened unto a wild animal
escaped from a cage; the noise sounds
llko a cataract, and a cataract it is. it
leaps und bounds over the very rock.-.
Which, in more peaceful times, bids the
?water divide and pass around. It is
dangerous to ut tempt fording the
et ream at these times.
All, from the grey-haired matron and
the doting old grandfather, to the
youngest youth, do their utmost to ad 1
to the pleasures of one and another. It
Is more like one large family: each
guest is made speedily acquainted as
soon ns they arrive, and who, in turn,
lends a willing hand that tho "good
times" may long live In their mem?
At the "Rai Poudrn" given last week,
a spectator might have believed ho was
In dreamland. As each fair one arrived
in quest of her favorite, and the march
began, hand Joined In hand, to the
strains of "Georgia (.'amp Meeting,"
played by 'tho Second Virginia Regi?
mental Rand. Every State in the Union
?was represented by a powdered ha ri i
and gaily dressed personage.
The most, familiar faces to the read?
ers were Miss Vera "Williams, grcon
mosicn <le solr and diamonds, with Dr.
Harrison, of Richmond; Miss Martin,
?white organdie over pink taffeta; MIfh
Louise Trice, blue organdlo over silk,
with Mr. Turner; Mrs. it. 11. Trice,
green silk and black lace, with Mr. W.
H. H. Trice; Mrs. 30. C. Richardson,
black lace, with Mr. Richardson; Mrs.
Howoll, white organdie over silk, With
Mr. Howell; Mrs. A. A. Freeman, gray
fdlk. Witll Mr. Bennett; Mrs. Charles
Tearsons, white silk, with Mr. Pear?
son, nnd many others whose names
would not be familiar. Suffice It to say
Unat In all there were fifty couples on
the llonr, and as tho grand march was
made under the leadership of Mr. Ar?
thur Freeman, the spectators all said
It was a feast lit for the gods. Even
the ball room had an air of distinction
snd more more beautifully decorated
than on previous occasions, with bunt?
ing ami ferns, nnd which is more easi?
ly Imagined than described.
Nine tallies were set for the regular
Saturday morning euchre game last
Saturday. Tho successful gentleman.
Mr. Howell, won a beautiful card ease
set with silver, while Miss Fulllvatet
succeeded In currying- off tho ladles'
prize, a silver fruit knife.
A delightful nnd no less amusing po?
tato roll, given by Dr. Gildcrslceve, of
Tnzewell, was enjoyed by the young
nnd obi alike. The successful potato
cntcher was Mr. W. IT. IT. Trice, who
carried off not only the greatest num?
ber of potatoes, but a handsome silver
knife. Miss Douiso Trice won the In?
dies' prize. Mr. McCown and Mr. Pear?
son, of course, came in for the booby.
Thero Is on our program another of
these delightful entertainments to b
given by Mr. Trice next week.
The guests orten go over to the Yel?
low, a distance of three miles, are. of
course, royally entertained on till ?
visits by Mr. Holt, the genial manager
of that place. Of course, the patrons ol
the Yellow often come in large parties
to Montgomery, where they in turn are
The most, exciting time Is when tin
train arrives. All are on the porch to
witness Hie arrivals, to Initiate them
so to speak, but 1 think from curiosity,
more than anything else. Among the
more recent arrivals are Me. and Mrs
W. W. Vicar, Mr. and Mis. W D
Southall. Miss Goodrich, from Norfolk

and noise of tho city, where life is

nnd we all say. with one accord, happy
Is life at the historic Old Montgomery.

'AN ENJOYABLE WEFK" AT TTITS
Montgomery White Sulphur Sprlnrrs,
Va., Aug. IS.?A beaut I rut faVor ger
man was tendered the ladies of Mont?
gomery White by the gentlemen Wed?
nesday, and was pronounced by all a
great success. The ball-room was
tastefully decorated, nnd when the
twenty-live couples marched in. led by
Messrs. Miller and Wallers, the scene
was indeed a pretty one. Quite a num?
ber drove over from the Yellow Sul?
phur, and from their pleoeurc-lit fat a
one fathered that tho evening was n
pleasant one for them.
Mr. J. K. Anderson, of Roanotte, had
collected quite a nice sum front the
gentlemen of the place, and with it had
purchased a variety of favor's stick?
pins, buttons, glove-hooks, hat-pins,
etc., etc. As the columns of Indies and
gentlemen tiled through the doorways
Into the ball-room the little (lower girls.
Miss S. Joroule and Miss Robinson, pre?
sented each with a. sealed envelope,
containing a number. The holders of
the tw>> lucky numbers winning a prize:
Miss Causey, of Suffolk, was the for?
tunate lady, receiving a handsome cut?
glas? and silver vinaigrette. Mr. Mil?
ler, the gentleman's that prize, a ci?
Claret punch was served during the
evening and much enjoyed by the thirs?
Mr. Trice, of Norfolk, gave tin en?
joyable potato race to the children
Wednesday, and the fun was fast and
furious. The little tots were not t.> be
out-done by the larger ones and where
skill failed, bare-faced Ingenuity prov?
ed a victor, and deliberately plrrking up
the potato and placing it upon the
spoon, ran across the room, holding it
tight with the other hand. Mr. Trice
distributed exceedingly pretty prizes,

Catawba, Va., Aug. 10.?There are'
many guests aL this delightful resort
from Norfolk and Portsmouth, nnd we
are enjoying every moment of the time.
We are glad to know that, a party of
six will he here to-night. Nearly every
Southern State is well represented,
and we have guests from New Jersey,
Pennsylvania, and from the District,
too. We nrcliigli up in the Alleghanies,
rear the West Virginia line, and arc
nearly j.Tcio foot above the sea. level. The
climate i.- unsurpassed and the mineral
waters are llfc-glvlng.
We accommodate about 300 guests,

it cannot !>?? compared to a. house par?
ty. We lind many who come here con?

and must mention Mr| and Mrs. Gra?
ham, of Arkansas, who have occupied
the .'-.line cott.ore for twenty summer',
and Dr. and .Mrs. Robertson even long
The band plays to us at our meals,
and the ball room is a scene of music,
light and merriment from s to in o'clock
.?very evening; except Sunday. We have
.???v. ia! germans during the season, and
WC also have till kinds of amusements.
We divide in squads after breakfast,
some for the bowling and billiard rooms
ami other for cro<iuet or tennis. Then,
the hoys have base ball teams. We
had a progressive euchre Thursday,
given by Mill Chapman, which was so
much enjoyed and the prizes were so
generous, being souvenirs of the "Red."
Mrs. Nicholson, of Portsmouth, Va..
gave a euchre Monday morning, and
the booby prize was so unique and orig?
inal that Mr. Langhorne, of St. Louis,
played for it. It is whispered that
had" a special attraction for him, as it
sprang from the brain and hand of a
ci rtaln young lady.
The phantom ball of last week Is an
event, too, for the ghosts almost look?
ed ethcrlcal, wound around, as they
were, in their mystic sheets. Lust, but
not least, was the full dress german
of Friday night, led by Mr. L.mghorne,
of St. Louis, with Miss Harry, of Vir?
ginia, and Mr. Logan, of Salem, Va..

Last night we h id a Martha Wash?
ington german, there being sixteen cou

our fathers and mothers of over a hun?
dred years back. The gentlemen look?
ed handsome in their knee breeches,
buckles, powdered wigs and lacs. The
young ladies were without a doubt a
picture to behold, dressed in their love?
ly satin heirlooms, resplendnnt with
precious jewels. Costumes were seen
that really fame front, the descendants
of some of the signers of the Declara?
tion of Independence.
