[Tuesday, having had a most snccoss I full meeting. The entries were nil morons and the attendance large, ami in every respect the show was all its incorporators could have expected. The principal exhihitors were Mr. Courtaney H. Smith of Alexandria, who principally exhibited hunters; Garber & (iarber of Harrisonburg, who hud high class driving horses: Mrs. Allan Potts of Richmond, Dr. C. T. Firebaugh of Harrisonburg, the Herring Brothers of Rockingham, Mr. (t. C. Scott of Richmond, A. B. Steele of Atlanta, (ia„ CO. West of Haiti more, .Julian Morris of Lynchhnrg, I MeComh & Hydnor, and many others. I Among our town and county exhibi tors were Ciemmer & Taylor, Liggett & (irubert, H. C. Braxton, S. R. Klly son. Michael & Van Lear, D. li. Ham rick, J. V. Bell, Belter & Bush, A. R (t. Bass, E Alexander, J. A. Kennedy and numerous others. We do nol pretend to give any list of the exhilil tors or of the prizes this week, nor to he able to notice the exact number ol entries from the town and county, hut we hope later to do so. It has been very gratifying to see so many good horses from Staunton and Augusta, tint we have not been able to compete with Rockingham and Harrl |sonburg in this respect. We have [seldom seen liner horses than the stables of (larber & (iarber showed here. Some of their horses were au purh, and all were good. We sincerely hope that the "Horse Spirit" may be infused by this show into our people aud that the grade of horses in Staun ton and Augusta be improved. The Herring's showed some very fine saddle hornets, and Dr. Firebaugh brought here one of the very finest harness horses it has been our good fortune to see. This horse, Eclipse, won two blue ribbons, one when driven by Dr. Firebaugh himself, aud one when driven by Mrs. Laura Taylor McCoy. Mr. Harnsherger exhibited a very fine saddle'horse in "Maj. Dan gerfield." The hunters attracted much atten tion and were a decided feature, the jumping being magnificent. Mrs. Allen Potts, Miss Gertrude Skelton and Mrs. Hlair Johnson, were tbe principal lady riders. Miss Skelton being exceptionally noticeable for her daring. No hurdle was too high or dangerous for her to ride at, nor any Inline hut that she managed him with success. Mrs. Allen Potts was per fectly at borne in all she undertook. Her riding aud driving were master ful, and her skill, poise and grace were very charming, winning plaudits all the time. Both Miss Skelton and Mrs. Potts were thrown by their horses failing at the hurdles, but neither sus tained any injury. Mr. Stephenson of Harrisonburg, was also thrown and his horse fell on him, but he sustained little or no injury. In the fall of Mrs. Potts' horse which was caused by tbe loss of his foot bold just before reach ing the hurdle, it looked as if tbe horse would break its neck, but fortunately it turned over in such a way as to pre vent this. An unfortunate incident, and the only one which in any way marred tbe pleasure of the occasion, was with Mr. Clarence West, who took excep tion to some decision of the judges, and this resulted in his splendid four in-hand being ordered off the track, thus losing him a prize which ho had easily won. The weatbe. was threatening, but not enough rain fell to seriously injure the track, still it may have reduced the attendance. Those who have attended horse shows elsewhere are loud in their encomiums of this one, and it is prophesied that by next year one of tbe very finest horse shows of Virginia will be held here. It is possible that on the evenings of the two last days of the next show racing may be a feature. Tbere was a large aud enthusiastic crowd both days, and many distin. guished visitors from other sections were in attendance. It proved the leatnre of the year here and ended with a magnificent ball given at Co lumbian Hall, in which more than 00 couples participated, and was witness ed by nearly two thousand spectators. Ssmuel A. Lighlner's Memory. In the issue of August sth, Statin ton Spectator and Vindicator, I saw tbe notice of the death of Saiu'l A. Lightner, of Newport, Augusta county, Va. Mr. Lightner was one of live members of Co. E, sth Virginia Regiment (Infantry), captured at the Opequan Creek ford, near Wade's De pot, on the morning of September 13, 1864, and taken to Caiup Chase, Ohio, and there confined till the end of the war. While tbere, half starved and thinly clad, he wrote to some relatives iv a western state, asking for a small remit-j t--trice. They wrote biin if he would take the oath of allegiance to the Uni ted States government, they would let hiui have all the money be wanted, and procure bis release from prison also. Hut Sain Lightndr was not of that kind. Neither money, nor food nor such thing, although suffering from hunger and cold was any inducement to him, but instead it proved an insult. Pea.cc to bis memory ! A Comrade. August 10, 1901. Judge Parker Notified. Wednesday afternoou, Alton B. Par ker, was formally notified of his nomi nation on the Democratic ticket. All the morning the rain poured down in torrents, but shortly afternoon it shop ped and tbe notification took place on the lawn at Esopus. Chump Clark, chairman of tbe committee made the address notifying Judge Barker. A great outburst of applause greeted the conclusion of Chairman-Clark's speech, and the presentation of tbe credentials, but was faint in comparison with the cheers that went up as Judge Parker stepped to the center of the platform and began his address of acceptance. Judge Parker was applauded at near ly every period iv his address. When Judge Parker finished his ad dress there was a great outburst of applause and tbe waving of flags. The nominee's declaration not to accept a renomination was almost frantically cheered. Old Watches Made New!! Special cases made to order. English cases changed to fit American movements.

AN OLD LANDMARK BONE. Cave Spring News— Tbe Camp rs Return. No Lives Lost. The tearing out of the old dam and putting in a new one at Trinity Pnii t Mill, near Cave Spring, is a matter of much interest in that neighborhood, and the opening of tbe flood gates, with the expected hanlof fish last Fri day, drew a large crowd. The mill was built in 1846 by a Dr. Reynolds and was, till IS7O, in success ful operation. That year the great flood, which did so much damage a'l through this valley, swept the dam away. Mr. D. V. Maslncup rebuilt the dam for the then owners. Turner & Harrison. The property, afterwards passed into the bands of A. D. Trib bett, from whom it was later purchas-" ed h/ Col. James C. Cochran, and at his death became the property of tbe present owner, Mr. Jos. S. Coebran, his son. It is a remarkable coincidence that Mr. Masincup, still an active con tractor, should, after tbe lapse of 34 years, be again the builder or the dam and now has a force of workman en gaged In tearing down the old struc ture and erecting a brand new one. The timbers have been all sawed by a portable mill on the ground, and will be as rapidly as possible put in place, making a substantial structure of 2 inch oak plank, 83 feet long, and the mill, an excellent roller process one, in complete repair, be soon in operation. The great body of water, backing up the river more than half a mile, w<;s four or five hours running out. Then several companies of men and boys from the neighborhood waded in with nets and seins and gathered the fish and eels in largo numbers, making some glorious hauls, tossing tbe nice fluttering, floundering fellows ashore with shouts of glee. The largest cap ture I saw was a big carp, caught by the Baptist crowd from West View, who seemed to take to the water nat urally, and wasn't afraid of the deep holes, the boss said it would weigh 15 lbs and he ought to be good authority. The Y. M. C. A. boys located a mile down the river, studying the writines of the fishermen of the Bible, failed lo B their nets with them and missed iart of their lesson, so were not '' for fish, but on going down tbe he Spectator man found them "strictly in it" for a pretty, cosy camp set up in military order, under com mand of Commodore W. D. Hoge.wbo j earned his naval title by the skill with I which he managed his boats on the, .river near by, aud tbe floods which were poured down on him every other : day with his battalion of naval re serves who spent more time iv the water than they did out of it. "The showers of blessings" that they had been singing about so long, came in the shape of much rain, with an abun dance of fresh milk, vegetables, eggs, chickens, &c, and fun without stint, and such appetites! Folks living in town, with their clothes all buttoned up tight, don't know the capacity of a camper in loose dress. I saw boys go hack to the Commodore with empty plate to be filled so often that I had to stop and count, four, five, six times, but when Powell Stratton who claim ed the championship, got up to eight plates of Malta Vita and other things in proportion, the Commodore and I stopped counting and voted him the blue ribbon. The two weeks closed Saturday and Heaven sent the naval expedition a heavenly day for changing base and advancing on Staunton. The cruisers, torpedo boats, water proof tents, ma rines, with what was left of company stores, packed up in three wagons aid s tiled for home. It bad taken live to get them out. What, became of the restV Ask the papas to weigh the hoys and perhaps the answer to the question will be found. Staunton was captured about sun down and not a man lost. The next news from Cast will tell a different tale. Romney's Ice Mountain. A Tarkershiirg (\V. Va.) dispatch to the New York World says: Oue of the great natural curiosities in West Vir ginia is the ice mountain in the upper part of Hampshire county, about six teen or seventeen miles from the town of Romney. The west slope of this monntain is covered with loose or shade rock. By removing the stones at any time dur ing tbe hottest days of the year pure Crystal ice can be found. At the foot of the mountain a farmer has erected a large log dairy which was partly built in tbe bill by excavating the earth and rocks. On the side next the hill the openings between the logs are filled with solidly frozen ice and the floor is ice covered toadepth of several inches. Butter, milk, eggs and meal art: kept in this building ail summer without tbe slightest injury. Insects or reptiles, of course, cannot exist in tbebuilding. In fact, all of that part of Iho mountain is safe to wander over at any time during the summer, for the cool.ioss of the ground makes creeping things tor pid if it does not kill them. City Markets.
