US, AND OTHERS.
Kockingham county, Va., poaaibly
with a siogle excoption the finest and
beet off of all our counties not em
bracing a city, i* juatly crowing over
the cooditioD of her tiuauces. Shr
tiudi? that a county levy of aeven
ceota will be auftieieut for all ueces
aary expens^a the coming year Just
tbink of ir, ye Tidewater counties?
counties where fiab, oyaters, truck
and great buaineaaenterpriaea abound
and where labor is more than twice
aahigh as in the Shenandoah Valley!
Kockingham and her sister countiee
depend practically upon faruiing.
atock-raiaing and timber-getting.
Time waa wheu every other farm in
that big county waa mortgaged;
fence8 were of worm, and shackly;
what buildinga were left by the ruth
leas Sberidan were in decay for want
of paint, and tumbling down. Today
ahe lookaaa though a great landacape
gardener, with Tataoic handa, had
remoulded her rolling acreB, marked
herdifisions with uiodern fence8aud
embellished eten the sheep cote.
What has wrought this tranaforma
tion isaconapiracyof things. Piuck,
perBeverance and patriotiam on the
part of the peoph-; fair assessmeot,
fertilizer and fertility, as applied to
the land. Her people have leamed
to be induatrious?not idliug?and
they have pulled together for the
comtnou weal. Farm lands are as
ses8ed at $40 per acre, and the State,
as well as the county, gets honest
tax returns. They do not "crop"
one flsld this year, and auother the
next while the flrst rests in a taiu
hope that it may recuperate, but they
crop them all and give back to nature
from commercial stores something
that has been drawn from it. To
some of onr farmers it is like pulling
eye-teeth to plow in a clover sod.
Up there grass turned in brings
niany fold its value in subsequent
crops. It is no excuse in compariaon
to say that her soil is naturally rich.
This is true, but it was once depleted
aud man has assisted nature in re
coveriug what was once loat.
Our people may learn lesaons from
our mountain brothera, not the least
being that couuty affairs should
be conducted by bnsiness men and
men who have the people's interest
at heart. Kockingham has uot bteu
free of political atrife; in fact, few
countiea have known more bitter
feuda. But through it all in later
yeara good men have been at the head
of affaira, the people long aince find
ing that it is poor policy to "bite off
yournoae to apite your face."
A hiqh oflicial of the UnitedSona
of Confederate Veterans auggeata
that the organization be made a fra
ternal relief one, and that inaurance
be paid members. We, for one, pro
teat. Let it be "f raternal", of course;
k-t it aubacribe to indigent veterana
and homeleas matrons, but it is not
auch a body of invalida itaelf, or alto
gether in dire need, individually or
collectively. There are no grounda
forsuch a move, and ahould wisdom
fatl ahort and it resolve into a bene
ficial organization its daya will be as
a tale that is told. It was founded
upon aentiment, it ia propagated by
love. Become mercenary and graap
ing, and theae ble88ed ingredienta
vanish.
A pahticii'ant in the great asaem
blage at the Richmond reunion, and
overwhelmed with tLe thrilling oc
caaiou, we feel utterly incompetent
to comment upon the aacred and
atupendou8 moment. We have tried
to cover conservatively the reunion
daya by a chronicle to be found on
our lirat and second pagea.
"Wintrr has come and gone; so
has spring, and the advent of the
'good oid summer time' liuda us here
doing buainess in the same old way,"
chirpa the Tidewater Democrat.
The marines don't know it, brother.
Send a slice of the "Uood old anm
mer time in the same old way" down
this-ward, please.
Fkksidbnt Uoosbvelt says that
nothing but war or danger of war
would make him coosent to serve an?
other term. And we believe he meaus
it. 1 >emocrat8 in Congress should see
to it that they do not loae their heads
and rush in for any war as was done
over Cuba.
Good for old Norfolk! Sunday
b ise-ball was not played. No city of
Virginia or in the South is yet ripe?
and we trust will never be?for such
deaecration of the Sabbath. Let us
copy the good deeds of the North,
not her evil institntions.
Richmond has eurely demon
atrated she cau haudle large crowds,
and in genuine southern style. Not
the least of her perfect arrangements
is her street car service.
FIGHT BATTLES
OVER AGAIN.
(CONTINUED FROM FIRST PAGE.)
Eleet Officers and Adjourn
Saturday tho business st-ssion of tho
convention closed. Hirmingham, Ala.,
won the honor of next year'a reunion.
The grand camp United Confederate
Veterans re-elected its general officers
as follows: Commander-in-Chief, Gen.
Stephen D. Lee; Lieutenant-Gcncrals,
Gen. Irvine Walker, Gen. Clement A.
Evans, Gen. W. L. Cabell.
The report of the committee on reso
lutions recommends that the speeches
of Gen. S. D. Lee, Senator Daniel and
Col. R. E. Lee, jr., be printed in pamph
let form for distribution. It thanks
Congress and the President for return
ing the captured battle flags and for ap
propriating $200,000 to mark the graves
of Confederate soldiers buried in North
ern soil. It likewise thanks the Twenty
third New Jersey Infantry for erecting
a tablet at Salem church, near Freder
icksburg, to the Alabama soldiers, with
whom it was engaged. The report
urges that the Southern States give
each Confederate soldier a testimonial
of his record, and when death comes,
an appropriate burial. It deciares that
the title of general shall be borne only
by those who had that title during the
war.
The Sons of Veterans passed a resolu
tion forbidding the election of any per
son to the organization other than a son
of a Confederate veteran.
Glorious Day for Yets.
Monday was the crowning day of the
reunion. The railroads reported 75,000
strangers in the city that day. Fully
200,000 lined the streets and viewed the
grandest parade ever seen in the South.
A flood of brilliant sunshine fell like a
benison from the cerulean dome upon
the grey-coated veteran hosts. Cumu
lative enthusiasm mounted to the fever
pitchat noon, when, with bands playing
"Dixie," '-'Maryland, My Maryland,"
"The Bonnie Blue Flag" and other
stirring patriotic airs, the Stars and
Bars floating in the Junebreezes, count
less thousands cheering and waving the
colors of the Confederacy, the army in
gray and its formidable escort of mili
tary pageantry for two hours moved
through the streets of the beloved
old capital of the Confederate States
towards theJefferson Davis monument,
to the westward, the course of the set
ting sun.
To Jefferson Davis, first and only
president of the Confederate States of
America, whose fame was long ago
indeliibly written by the people of the
Southland hipon the tablets of love and
memory, the imposing granite and bronze
memorial that stands in Monument
avenue was unveiled that aftemoon.
The draperies fell from the stately
monument amid the booming of the
Howitzer guns, sounding a president's
salute. A paean of triumph was the
martial monotone that rumbled from
the throats of the grim line of cannon,
the paean of a people who arevictorious
even in defeat, "worn out with con
quering," but their strenglh now re
gained.
The cord releasing the cover of the
heroic-size figure was drawn by Mrs.
J. A. Hayes, daughter of President
Davis, surrounded by her sons, the
presidenfs grandchildren.
A vast assemblage, covering probably
ten acres, was banked around the
monument during the inspiring cere
monies. The enthusiasm was at all
times intense, sometimes spectacular.
Old and young men and women were
moved to tears.
The ceremonies were opened with
prayerby theRev. Dr. J. William Jones,
of Richmond, chaplain-general. The
first address was by Governor Claude A.
Swanson, and he was followed by Mayor
Carlton McCarthy, who introduced Gen?
eral Clement Evans as orator of the
day.
Pen cannot describe the deafeningap
plause which greet^d the speakers.
Virginia's young Governor, at all times
eloquent, surpassed himself on this oc
casion and his speech was interrupted at
intervals by deafening applause and
impromptu volleys from cannon's
raouths. Gen. Evans, with superb elo
quence drove the hundred thousand
listeners to fever pitch, and when his
peroration died away, sounding the
close of the greatest of reunion festivi
ties, it was long time before the throng
ceased shouting and began to disperse
to the four corners of this Union.
TIdewater Vets Fass ltesolutions.
At a joint meeting of Lawson-Ball
Camp, of Lancaster, and Lane-Diggs
Camp, of Mathews, and associated
veterans of other Camps, held aboard
the State steamer Commodore Maury
June 3rd, 1907, the foHowing resolutions
were offered and adopted:
Resolved, 1st. That a vote of thanks
be extended Governor Swanson and
Commodore Leei for the use of this
fine and commodious steamer in con
veying us to and from Richmond.
Resolved, 2nd. That a vote of thanks.
be also extended to Captain Doggett
and his officers and crew for their kind,
courteous and royal treatment.
Resolved, 3rd. That a copy of these
resolutions be sent to Governor Swanson,
a copy to Commodore Lee and the
same published in the Virginia
Citizen. Mathews Joumal, N. N. News
and the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Passing Ulances.
A vet from the far South had a tre
mendous pair of steer horns banded
around his cap while marchlng. A by
stander remarked that he looked like a
Texassteer; whereupon, quickas a flash,
the old warrior said?"Yes, and a two
year-old!"
Ex-Judge John C. Ewell, of Lancas
ter, who attended the reunion but was
sick in bed a great part of the time,
was re-elected 8rd Lieut-Commander of
the Grand Camp of Virginia. The
yeterans from this section of Tidewater
returned Wednesday morning on the
police steamers after having spent a
day at Jamestown Exposition.
A sensational incident became known
to a few persons. A prominent Ten
nessee veteran, Mr. Rush Pearson, and
several old soldiers were in a store on
Broad Street Friday night when a New
Yorker, who was evidently drinking,
began cursing and applying offensive
epithets to Confederate soldiers in gen
eral. Finally, Mr. Pearson, becoming
disgusted, approached the offensive
Northerner und. catching him by one
ear with one hand. with the other
soundly slapped his jaws, and rebuked |
him for his offensive language and
gratuitous insults. The man did not
resent the slap. Mr. Pearson was a
fourteen-year-old soldier of Forrvst's
command when he entered the Cwrf?1
eratr sorvio-.
The Immortal Six Hundrcd held its
annual meeting Saturday. This organ
ization consists of the survivors of six
hundred Confederate ollicers who were
prisoners and for retaliation were ex
posed to the fire of the Southern guns
at Morris island for forty-two days,
and then endured great hardships on a
prison ship for sixty-five days. There
were present only about twenty-five
survivors.
At the request of Commander Lee
wheels of business commerce and
pleasure throughout the South sus
pended promptly Monday at2 p. m. for
a few minutes in honor of the birthday
of President Jefferson Davis and the
unveilingof his monument at that hour
in Richmond. The Seaboard, Atlantic
Coast Line and some other railroads
stopped every train, hammer and piece
of machinery for a few minutes.
Several venerable cotton-headed ne
groes were in the line of march with
their former masters. They elicited
much applause, for it was known that
they too had served in the days that
tried men's souls and were faithful to
their owners. One of them, marching
by the side of his old master, carried a
haversack out of which stuck potatoes,
a piece of ham and other raided viands
and from his coat pocket protruded a
live hen. He had not forgotten hisfor
aging days.
Mrs. Hayes, daughter of Jefferson
Davis, was called upon through the pa
pers to deny that, when captured, her
father had on a gown. Mrs. Hayes
brands the claim as a falshood, saying
that her father at the timc was clad in
Confederate gray. The fabrication
which has had wide publicity through
the North and in some histories was
founded on the fact that Mr. Davis
wore at the tirne a shawl like southern
gentlemen occasionally donned, thrown
over his shoulders because of the raw
weather.
LIGHTKEEPER DIES IN BOAT.
Capt. Peter Jarvis, head lightkeeper
at Wolftrap, Chesapeake bay, was
taken sick Monday while at the light,
and got into his boat to go ashore to
his home in Mathews. It is presumed
he became paralyzed before reaching
land, for his boat drifted back into the
bay and was picked up by a passing
yacht. Capt. Jarvis was still alive.
Fishing steamer Daisy, of the Carters
Creek fleet, came along and took the
sick man to Fitchetts, but he dicd
before reaching the wharf. The Cap
tain was about 65 ycars of age, was
prominent in Mathews county and was
a Mason.
KETCH-AWLS FROM EVERYWHERE.
Misses Susie and Carrie Norria, of
Lancaster county, Va., are visiting
friends in town this week. The Misses
Norris have just taken their B. A. de
gree at the Woman's College, Rich?
mond. Their stay in Waverly has been
short, yet they have made a favorable
impression, especially upon the young
people of our town.?Waverly Corr.
Times Dispatch.
The last annual report of the Board
of Fisheries is before us, and makes a
most gratifying exhibit of the accom
plishments of that department of our
State government during the period
coyered. This Board is certainly a
most important adjunct to our revenue
gathering machinery, and is manned
by officers who evidently appreciate that
fact. Lee at its head and Mathews as
his right bower, make a combination of
energy and efficiency literally charming
to contemplate. ? Northampton Times.
The Exposition will get its greatest

personally of their clientelle that what

The Northumberland High School
commencement, which took place in
the opera house Friday night, May 24,
was a success in every particular. The
exercises were opened with prayer by
Rev. H. S. Driscoll; a solo was sung
by Miss Lenola Snow, then Professor
Frank P. Hrent, of the Lancaster High
School. speakerof theevening, delivered
an address, after which Miss Margaret
Shirley sang a solo. The medals were
then awarded, Jones & Richardson hav

Wm. A. Smith has housed one of the
bestcrops of German clover ever raised
in this section. Owing to the scarcity
of seed, but few black or shinny peas
will be planted.
Mason Brent was surveying near here
on Monday.
T. H. Gill's idea about a new steam
boatis a goodone, but fearit will never
berealized. The counties between here
and Fredericksburg should gettogether,
issue bonds, and build an electric road
to that city. This could easily be done
without the taxpayers suffering to any
extent.
We hear little political talk, except
in reference to the Supervisor. It is
said that Jas. Beane and Wm. P.
Anderson will probably be candidates
for the place. We hope this is true and
that one of them will run. They are
both practical men and understand how
the roads should be worked. Then
either one would visit the roads and
take some interest in them. Anderson
or Beane either would get every vote
in this section. Let one or the other or
both come out. B. C.

at one o'clock in the Albernaie Sound
while en route from Elizabeth City to
Columbia, N. C. The Tourist was on
the Rappahannock a few years back.
The numerous robberies along the
water front at Norfolk, frequently ac
companying the stupefaction of sleep
ers aboard the craf t through the use of
chloroform, have so alarmed bargemen
that they are keeping watch at night.
The Maryland, Delaware and Virgin?

colors. illustrated and descriptive of
the various lines of travel controlled by
that company. Conspicuous among
which, are the Rappahannock line of
