The annual Christmas entertainment
of the Grace Baptist church Sunday
school took place in the main body of
the church last evening-, and proved
to be quite a delightful affair.
Painstaking fingers had tastefully dec?
orated the church With holly, cedar and
evergreens, and upon tho platform was
erected a hut representing the log
cabin in the dell, and from the inte?
rior of this hut a select program was
presented. Mr. Win. Burgess, as Santa
Claus, drew rounds of applause from
the many little children present. The
crowning feature of the program was
tho dialogue entitled "Tho Happiest
Bays of All," by eleven young ladles,
the scene showing by red light "The
Queen of Happiness'! crowning her ten
different deputies. After che entertain?
ment was over candies, nuts and fruits
were distributed to the members of tho
Sunday school, teachers and superin?
tendent of the school no: being forgot?

also. Very handsome presents were
given to Mr. A. If. Broughton for his
faithful and untiring labors as super?
intendent; to Miss Goodrldge and Mrs.

long and efficient service in the choir,
and even the sexton was not forgotten.
Bui the handsomest und most valuable
presents of the season were a fine book?

gregation to Rev. J, Ernest Thacker,
the pastor, and a very fine lamp pre?
sented by the ladies to Mrs. Thacker.
For these nnd presents innumera?

SEWALL'S POINT IMPROVEMENT
PINKY BEACH HOTEL. NOW RIS?
ING?FILLING UP THE LAKE.
Work is proceeding rapidly on the
great improvements that will convert
Sewall's Point into a modern seashore
resort. The masons have been at work
for ten days on the foundations of
Piney Beach Hotel, and these show
that the structure will be Imposing In
size and with a most convenient ground
plan. The hotel will be 331 feet long
and will average about 120 feet in
width. The main portion will be four
stories high and the wing will be of
(luce stories. The broad verandahes
will be around the main portion on all
sides. They will be broad and com?
mand a line view of Hampton Roads.
The hotel will be of brick and wood and
will be surrounded by fourteen acres of
hotel grounds. In addition to this
there will be the nearby hotel park of
ten acres. This Is a naturai pine forest
that will be underbrushed and sown to
Between the hotel and pier there will
be a two.story pavilion and pictures?
que bath-houses will be erected near
the pavilion anil also for the use of
guests at the hotel. Three piled dikes
have been constructed at Sewall's
Point to prevent the wearing away of
tie- land by wave action, ami it Is be?
lieved that these will not only prevent
the loss of land, but will tend to en?
large It by accretions.
An enormous job confronts the own?
ers 'if the Sewall's Point property In
the work of tilling the broad, shallow
lake- near the-hobM. Thls-is being done_
by dumping in it the sand that is ob?
tained in the removal of the sand hills
that obstruct the vlow of the water
back from the beach. A suction dredge
is now at work cutting its way from
the lake through the sand hills to the
Elizabeth river. When this opening Is
effected most of tflc water will rap?
idly drain off and tints greatly facili?
tate tin? vvorM of filling up the depres?
sion. This machine will also by suction
take sand from the rP er bed. and this
will be transferred by carloads to fill
up the lake basin.
It Is a fact not generally known that
the point where Piney Beach Hotel Is
being ererted Is the highest point of
land in this section. The land there Is
110 feet above sea level ami thus this
snot affords the best drainage and air
to lie found in tills? vicinity. A feature
that will be of value when the aid of
the landscape pardner Is called into
play Is the excellence of the soil will
ensure a healthy growth of plants and
THE CITIES SAID TO BE ON THE
LIST FOR PROBABLE SELEC?
Next week Mr. F.d. Ashenbaek, of
the Hampton-Newport News club, will
leave for North Carolina to look over
the ten cities that are anxious to have
teams in the Virginia-North Carolina
league for the season of 1901.
The selection will not be made until
the claims of the various cities are
given due consideration. All points
entering In the matter, such as popu?
lation, financial backing. Interest in
the game and active support by local
business men of good .standing will be
considered by Mr. Ashenbaek In ren?
dering Iiis decision.
At the present time It is believed
that Raleigh. Durham. Charlotte and
Wilmington will be the North Caro?
lina cities selected. These cities had
good teams last season and their citi?
zens showed strong interest In the
national game.. _
The Virginia cities in Die league will
be Norfolk. Richmond, Portsmouth
ami Newport News and Hampton.
