TRE FOURTH CELEBRATED.
At Irvington and Saluda Program
Disarranged by Rain.
The program for the Fourth celebra
tion at Irvington waa somewhat short.r
this year than usuul, and waa still
furlher rurtailed by the gentle rain
which fell during the whole aftemoon.
While disappointed from ln>th a pleasure
and tinancial standpoint, no doubt the
rain, which was badly needed, was of
greater benetit to tbe maaaes than the
out-door aports would have been. The
boat race was not run, although Mr. B.
L. Simmons was ready with his new
engine for any boat wilhin the specitied
rulea and was declared entitled to hol.l
the cup for one year. The down-pour
of rain in lower Middleaex prevented the
pickedteam from that section getting
over. This feature of the day was
luoked to as most interesting. At
night the Opera House was filled, and
the entertainment under the manage
ment of Mra. Irving R. Messick was
greatly enjoyed by all. Whensomeof
the visitors learned privately that the
whole entertainment was gotten up in
one week they expresaed surpriae and
were almost ready to declare themselves
doubting Thomases.
Jupiter Pluvius held sway pretty much
of the day on the 4th, and most of the
entertainmenta were either abbreviated
or broken up by the rain. Sharps, prob
ably, had the most successful one. A
little shower only came up in the after
noon, cooling things. The crowd was
very large, and they were liberal in
their patronage. Two games of ball
were pulled off, one in the morning
between Dunnsville and Sharps with
score 1 to 1 when rain stopped the game.
In the aftemoon Tappahannock and
the Courthouae, the former winning
KtoO.
At Saluda there was alao a large
crowd. The corner stone of the monu
ment was laid by the Maaona and the
unveiling waa attended by volleys of
musketry and bugle blaats from the
Norfolk Coast Artillery. Governor
Mann, ex-Governor Montague, Col.
Robt. E. Lee, Jr., and other dignitaries
were present, and between rain drops
aoaae apeaking waa had. The ladies of
the Middleaex chapterof the Dnughters
of the Confederacy provided ample re
freshments, and in every way carried
through their part in good ahape. The
Confederate choir was par excellence
in its muaic.

OLDTIME CAMP-MEETING SEASON.
"The grove* were Gnd's firat tem
pl.-M." and aa tbe sun grows warmer the
greenwood worshiperaspread their white
tents under the trees. In all the country
round about it ia camp-meeting time.
? ? ? Through all the yeara they
have loat but little of their old-time
character, and th.ir survival has been
fully justified.
I i.ere ivsoni.'thing in itself uplifting
in the groined aiales of great cathedrala,
wrap|>ed in a "dim, religioua light";
but since the Hebrew patriarch built
his altar and pitched his tent under the
oaks of Mamre, the solitude and quiet
of the groves have seemed the worlhieat
dwelling-place of the living God.
The fallingolf in the number of those
who *'go to church" ?the convenient
church in the next block or around the
eorner- presenta one of the vexing
problems with which present-day re
ligion is confronted. But those who
take delight in the simple songs of
prayer and praiae, who inquire no
further than the comforting story of
Christ and Him crucified, still gather at
the "love feasts" on the old camp
meeting grounds. The murmur of the
overarcning leaves is drowned in the
diapaaon of a thousand throata singing
"The Old-Time Religion." with hearts
atune to the theme, or sweiling with
that mellow classic of hymnology, "On
Jordan'8 stormy banks I stand." The
ministers of grace are those who come
with a humble and a contrite heart. All
look from nature up to nature's God.
Whatever may be the varied tunes,
the sentiments of the old-fashioned
camp-meeting find common expression
in the simple linea:
I know not where His islanda lift
Their fronded palms in air;
1 only know I cannot drift
Beyond his watch and care.
?Baltimore News.
