lamestown Ter-Centennlai Exposition i
Colonial City — Army and
Never before has there been held an
exposition with so many attractive
features as the Jamestown Ter-Cen
tennial, now in full swing on Hamp
ton Roads. The Ter-Centennial is
now complete in all of its details and
presents to tbe visitor a most attrac
tive display. The immense exhibit
palaces, state and government build
ings, all of a permanent or semi-per
manent construction, set off with
abundant shade trees and foliage, give
to the Exposition an appearance dis
tinct from all of its predecessors.
Within an hour's ride by either boat
or train are such historic places as
Yorktown, where Cornwallis surrend
ered to tbe Continental army, and
Jamestown Island, tbe "Cradle of
America." Just across the waters of
Hampton Roads are located Old Point
Comfort and Fort Monroe, the strong
est and most important artillery sta
tion on tbe Atlantic coast, whose grim
walls and winding moat make it one
of tbe most picturesque spots in tbe
country, These and many other places
of historic interest give an appropriate
setting to the Jamestown Exposition,
which commemorates the three hun
dredth anniversary of tbe first per
manent English speaking settlement
Owing to tbe fact that the James
town Ter-Centennial is the first cele
bration ever held on deep water in this
country, there has been going on al
most continually a grand naval spec
tacle of a kind such as America has
never seen before. The entire North
Atlantic fleet, under the command of
Rear Admiral Evans, squadron by
squadron, will rendezvous in Hamp
ton Roads from time to time, giving
the visitor to tbe exposition ample op
portunity to see the strongest fleet of
battleships in the world. There will
be at all times during the summer at
least six men of war in tbe roads.
The army, as well as tbe nayy, is
well represented at tbe Exposition, and
dally parades by regiments of United
States troops are to be seen on Lee's j
Parade, one of tbe largest and best
equipped drill plains in tbe country.
Stationed at the exposition grounds at
present are the entire Twenty-third
regiment of United States cavalry and
D battery of the Third field artillery
Several regiments of the national
guard of various States, besides nu
merous military and semi military or
ganizations, are encamped at the ex
position from time to time. Each of
these military organizations brings its
own band, which, together with tbe
exposition orchestras and bands, gives
a continuous and varied musical pro
The government exhibits, housed in
four handsome structures on the
water front, comprise one of the most
complete and comprehensive displays
of the work of the various departments
of tbe government ever assembled.
Tbe individual states have also come
forward at this exposition with their
co-operation, and twenty of tbem have
erected buildings to represent tbem,
while practically every state is repre
sented iv exhibits, historical, educa
tional, or industrial. These state
buildings are located on Willongbby
Boulevard, a grand avenue paralleling
the water front, and from tbe broad
pLzza of the state structures tbe
visitor may rest and view tbe magnifi
cent and historic harbor where the
fleets of tbe world might rest at an
chor. In tbe immediate front appear
tbe great white men of war of our own
and ofttimes a foreign nation's and
yachts, sloops, schooners and mer
chant vessels of every kind. Beyond
are the frowning walls of Fort Monroe
and the beautiful social retreat of tbe
coast, Old Point Comfort. To the
left, and further up the roads, toward
where tbe James mingles its waters
with the salt tide of the sea, may be
seen the city of .Newport News, witb
tbe greatest shipyards in the world.
To the right appears the broadening
channel from roads to bay and from
bay to broad and mighty Atlantic out
between capes Charles and Henry.
Tbe illumination at night is a scene
in itself worthy of a journey tbere to
witness, and, witb all tbe outlines of
the buildings aglow, the paths of the
Canoe Trail and Lover's Lane twink
ing with tbe myriads of little lights,
the War Path a blaze of electricity, the
Biowerful searchlights playing
avens with their mysterious
es and fifty miles of shore lines |
with the lights of a half dozen

tacle more beautiful could be imagin-
On tbe amusement section of tbe ex
position, called the Warpath, there is
every amusement and diversion,
I where the visitor, after a long day of
j sight seeing can relax and let himself
drift with the pleasure seekers from
one amusement to another, where tbe
| lights ever twinkle and the noise of
oriental music floats out on tbe air.

Wets File Answer.
Saturday afternoon the answer of
the wets to the charges made by
tbe drys in the contest over the local j
option election of July 12, was filed by l
their counsel, Messrs. Patrick & Gor- j.
don, Timberlake & Nelson, H, H.
Wayt, and Cbas. Curry. It was the r
last day on which tbe-answer could be c
filed. Tbe contest will probably not (
be heard before the September term of
court. They also filed a motion to
quash on four grounds: The complaint ,
does not purport to be complaint of
fifteen or more qualified voters of city,
no notice of filing has been given as
required by law; two of persons make
ing complaint have not subscribed tbe
oath that the facts alleged are true to
the best of their knowledge and belief; l
the complaiut does not set forth facts "
sufficient to entitle to relief, or to give
court jurisdiction, etc. The answer i
is a general denial of all tbe charges s
brought by tbe drys in regard to the t
conduct of the election. J
The frieuds of Miss Bessie Baker
here were greatly surprised at tbe an

of which reached here last Tuesday
Miss Baker is a daughter of Mr. C. S.
Baker of this city, and is one of the °
most popular and beautiful of Staun
ton's young society women. She had
been visiting in the home of her mar- s
ried sister, Mrs. B. F. Stollenwerck, at g
Greensboro; Ala., for some weeks, and a
was tbere married to Mr. Lee Jones of t
that place, the wedding being a quiet 1
one in the presence of only a few I
friends. Mr. Jones attended theUUn- t
versity of Virginia and has frequently t
visited Staunton and has made friends
here. The intended wedding was kept ,
so secret, that when tbe announcement ,
of its consummation reached here it
created quite a little sensation among (
the bride's host of friends iv this city. ,
Tuesday tbe young couple arrived .
here and have since been visiting at ,
the Baker home. Today they will
leave for a bridal tour, which includes
a visit to Jamestown Exposition aud .
other points east, after which they will
take up their residence in Greensboro,

for catarrh. My own experience and that of many friends who have
been benefited by its use recommend it to all persons suffering from that
Says Peruna Saved His Life.
"Peruna has cured me of catarrh. I
can work all day, eat hearty, sleep
well, and my digestion Is all right.
I was not able to do a day's work last
year. I candidly feel that using your
medicine was the means of saving my

praise of Peruna. I shall recommend
it to all my friends."—Alvis A. Nelson,
When any one has catarrh of the head
or throat they know it. Bnuffing, sneez
ing, coughing, spitting, gagging, chok
ing—these are some of the symptoms.
When any one has catarrh of the bron
chial tubes they are not quite so apt to
recognize their trouble as catarrh, al
though there are a great many people
who begin to appreciate the fact that ca
tarrh of the bronchial tubes is sure to
create a cough.
Catarrh produces symptoms according

"For nearly a doznn years catarrh has
bothered me in one form or another. 1
was troubled with nasal catarrh, that
had affected my stomach,which troub
led me most in the morning. My appe
tite was poor, and I did not seem to
relish my food. Indigestion bothered me
at times also. I wa3 advised to take
Peruna, and I took it as prescribed for
a month when my cure was almost com

tarrh in my system, and I can say with
out hesitation that Peruna cured me."

agreeable and effective tonic, pleasant
soothing, and leaves one free from the
deleterious effects produced by the
