Capt. Corse Appointed a Member of V. M. I. Visitors Tbe appointment by Governor Mann of Capt. Montgomery B.Corse of Lexington, as a member of the V. M. I. Hoard of Visitors to till the vacancy caused by the recent death of Dr. J. V. Bransford, meets with universal approval in Lexington as the "right man in the right place." Lexington feels that the town is en? titled toa local meoiberof the Board, and this bas been the case until very recent years. Captain Corse for years bas been identified with the V. M. I. He graduated in the class of 1885, and during the years 1893-97 was assist? ant professor; and for nine yeara filled the position of graduate mana? ger of athletics. After graduation he taught for two years at Fish burne's Military School, lor two years attended the University of Virginia, and from 18911 to 1893 was analytic chemist in Roanoke. For tbe past 14 years he has been pro? prietor of the McCrum Drug Com? pany of Lexington. He is now serv? ing his second term of two years as a member of the Lexington Town Council, and is chairman of the street committee and special water committee. Captain Corse has a marvelous capacity for work, and haa filled all his official positions with great credit to himself and the cause ser? ved. His father, (.eneral M. B. Corse, deceased, of Alexandria, Va. was a member for some years of the V. M. I.Board of Visitors and served with distinction. Hoyt's "A Bunch of Keys" Hoyt's "A Bunch of Knys." with all the latest novel features, pre? sented by an exceedingly stron com? pany, of great merit and possessing an original iood of humor, which is unexcelled by any other company on the stage, will ba presented at the Lyric Theatre Monday night, Nov. 20th. It will be well for these who wish to enjoy an eveningof laughter with the irresistible "Buch of Keys'' to tike precious time by the forelock and interview the advance sale at the earliest moment to secure a good seat ahead of the other fellow who wants a butter one. "A Bunch of Keys" is a magnet at drawing large audiences, and this season "stand? ing room only" is the regular thing in nearly every city or town in which it has appeared. Jua. B Mackie, the original "Grimsey Me Boy" will be one of the attractions. Boys' Corn Club Exhibit Next Monday, the :J0th, at ll o'clock, members of the Boys' Corn Club and the Girls' Domestic Club aie expected to be present at the Courthouse in Lexington for their annual exhibit. The boys will bring samples of the corn raised on their respective acres, and the girls to nave specimens of pastry and needlework. Don't forget the date, and let's make the second exhibit better than last year. A Correction In our report of the election last week it was mentioned |that Mr. G. A. Ayres was re-eleated supervisor for Buffalo district. This was an error. The returns were incomplete Wednesday, hence the mistake. Mr. Ayres for years has served his dis? trict with singular fidelity as a su? pervisor. Big Yield of Corn The following item appeared in The Gazette of Nov. 3D, IhH'1; "Mr. John D. Snider, toe champ. ion wheat-grower of Rockbridge. comes to the front on a corn crop. A plot of 21 measjred acres yielded 180 bushels ot shelled corn." Christmas Sale The Women's Working Society of tha Baptist church will offer various articles for sale on Thursday, Dec. 14th. in the lecture room.
