V.. proceeded to the B. & O. station and took the train for Winchester, where they arrived aj 8:30 a. m.

A committee for a like purpose from Tur ner Ashby Camp was in waiting to re ceive John W. Rowan Camp. The Mayor and Fire Marshal were mounted on fine horses previously secured by Captain Holmes, and a procession of the Charles Town contingent formed in the following, order: Mayor and Marshal. Charles Town Band, T. M. Baker Musi cal Director. John W. Rowan Camp, U. C. V., John M. Howell Marshal. Citizens' Fire Company, John W. Rus sell Captain. Independent Steam Fire Company No. i? Julius C. Holmes Captain. The procession proceeded down Picca dilly street to Main, and thence to Rouss avenue, location of headquarters of Tur ner Ashby Camp, to which point the John W. Rowan Camp was escorted. The line of march was continued by the Bind and Fire Department to the Rouss lot iu Mt. Hebron Cemetery, accompanying the firemen being a carriage bearing the floral decorations for the graves of the beloved dead of their generous benefactor, Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss. Arrived there, the two companies formed in a hollow square around the Rouss lot, with the band in the centre.? At the word of command all the firemen uncovered their heads, the band played a dirge, "At Rest," by T. M. Baker, and the floral decorations were placed in po sition. The Citizens' Fire Company set on the grave of C. H. B. Rouss a beautiful de sign of a ladder and hook, with the ini tials of the company, formed of red and white carnations, nearly seventeen hun dred of which were used in its construc tion?a very creditable production from the establishment of our home florists. Messrs. Elliott & Rodrick, and which was greatly admired. The Independent Steam Fire Company placed in front of C. H. B. Rouss' head stone a very handsome design of a lyre, 5 feet in height, covered with ferns, rare roses, white carnations and other choice flowers. This design was presented to the Independent Company by Hon. H. L. Hershey, Collector of Internal Revenue, ot Lancaster, Pa. At the head of the grave of Mrs. C. B. Rouss was placed a magnificent wreath resting upon an ea sel, the entire framework covered with rare palms and ferns, with the choicest American Beauty and other roses and white carnations. Tljis elegant decora tion was prepared in the most artistic manner by Messrs. J. H. Small & Son, 14th & G sts. NW? Washington, D. C., and was the admiration of all who visited the grounds. On the daughter's grave was set a handsome wreath with star in center, covered with evergreens, roses and carnations. At the headstones of graves of Mr. Rouss' father and mother a beautiful design of crescent and star, of red and white carnations, very rich and much admired, propared by our home florists. Between the two headstones a large wreath of evergreens, roses and carnations, prepared by lady friends of the company. On 'he graves of the fa ther and mother the Independent Com pany also placed bouquets of choice flowers. This tribute on the part of the Charles Town fire department and our people shows their heartfelt gratitude and appre ciation for one who has been the best of friends, and the high esteem in which he is held by our whole people. And so this trip was arranged, a committee sent to Winchester and hotel accommodations engaged for the fire companies, band and friends, and horses secured for use of Mayor and Fire Marshal. Our firemen are much indebted to the members of the Friendship Fire Company for the use of their handsome and com modious hall, and for the kind and gen erous treatment in general. Thus is another tribute paid by our gal lant firemen to the beloved dead of Mr. Charles Broadway Rouss, and the fact again demonstrated that distance is no hindrance with them in visiting the spot so cherished by their generous benefactor and doing honor to the memory of his dear ones who rest in the sacred soil of old Mt. Hebron, hard by the hallowed precincts of Stonewall Cemetery.

The Winchester Star of Wednesday notes that several things were of necessity crowded out cf its 6th of June issue, and says: The principal one of these was the beautiful decorations in the Rouss lot in Mt. Hebron Cemetery. The lot. always beautiful in itself, was a veritable flower garden yesterday with the artistic touch which converted the Spring flowers from their natural beauty of growth in shapes and designs, beautiful and exquisite. There were perhaps a dozen handsome floral designs in the lot and a large num ber ot bouquets. The Independent Fire Company, of Charles Town. W. Va., who were present yesterday in a body, had the largest and prettiest display of flowers. They had two immense wreaths of beautiful flowers and two designs of harps fashioned out of flowers. Then there was a broken column supported by shepherd's crook, in which were, over one thousand carnations. The Citizens' Fire Company, of Charles Town, also had several magnificent designs. The Charley Rouss Fire Company, the Friendship Fire Company and the Rouss Hook and Ladder Company each had magnificent pillows of rare flowers, the first named and last named companies having their names worked in blue immortelles on the pillows. Altogether it was the most handsomely decorated lot in the cemetery. Literary Societies in Contest.

The auditorium was fairly well filled with the friends of the couple, in cluding the members of the seminary faculty and their families, and other guests. The maid of honor was the beautiful sister of the bride, Miss Mary Ramsey Strickler. The best man was Mr. W. Lee Estes, of Texar kana, Tex. The maid of honor wore pink organdie; the other ladies who were attend ants were gowned in white of the same ma terial. The bridemaids wore large white hats, trimmed with pink roses. The ushers were Messrs. Henry A. Converse, of Win chester; A. D. P. Gilmour, of Richmond; James Hoge Tyler, Jr., of Richmond, and James B. Ficklen, of Albemarle. After the ceremony an elegant breakfast was served the guests at the residence of l">r. Strickler, and soon thereafter the couple left for Wash ington, Baltimore, and New York, from which city they will saii on the 15th of June to spend a few months roaming in Europe. The spacious parlor at the residence of the bride's parents hardly afforded room suf ficient for the display of the presents receiv ed, the couple being remembered by more than a hundred of their friends, who sent gifts of almost every character, in silver crystal and china. Professor Denny occu pied the Chair of Latin at Hampden-Sidney College, and besides being a young man of deep culture, is a teacher of high ability, for whom those who know him best predict a brilliant career. The bride is a typical young Virginia girl, prettv? refined, and accom ; plished; one of the kind that has made the 1 women of the Commonwealth the peers of any in the world.
