The ('lias. A. Jackson tract is an

11,000 acres, on much of which there is

heartily supported and encouraged.
Such commendable public spirit is
always productive of the best results,
the fruits of which Stokesville is reap

A remarkable case of canine instinct
came-under observation the day I left
Stokesville. The mistress of the house
had died and while lying a corpse th
pet pug took in the mournful situa
tion, showing every sign of compre
hension and of distress. The little dog
would run from tbe ohildreu to his
dead mistress and then back again,
whining most piteously. When the
funeral procession started, he could
not be driven back, but followed on to
the church, swimming the swolen
river. At the church he would not be
driven out, and on to the cemetery be
followed, where he watched the inter
ment —then curling up on the grave

V. C. Newham died suddenly

He had been a very active man all his j

The Glorious Fourth.
The efforts on the part of the people
of Staunton to renew and perpetuatf
the "anti-bellum" custom of celebrat

and no county in tbe state, to whom
has been transmitted more of the spir
it of the true tenets and intentsoft.bat
grandest of all political instruments

of Virginia's noblest and greatest pons
that emanated tbe thought and lit the
spark that glowed and burned in the
breasts of immortals that wrought
through untold privations and suffer

perishable heritage cf an independence
and freedom that has not ouly bleßt
us, but has awakened hope in the
hearts of the oppressed of all lauds.
The great statue of liberty enlighten
ing the world, that stands iv New York
harbor is an object lesson that speaks
the whole wonderful story of a nation V

Had there been no Jefferson, no Pa
