E -erard il-jadf, rector ol Pobick church, Fairfax ounty, which was real by bim oa the iccas.in of tbe unveiling. 'A quaint old Virginia town, whose founding )ate? back to limea Colonial, lies )j a beautiful river?a highway of trade, n ber ships much to the world she sup? plied, ts very name tells of a race long gone Yho through many mcoos lived, hunted, fished in the water and o'er bill lill tbe pale-faced min came and drove him cur, rook his land and settled it at will, rbis town and its environs wat se-Mled 3y English people, cultured, college bred, gr-at, iVbi se eh quent som-stood np to speak [o legislative bodies national and atate. rbis people lived their life of quiet _nd of ease?a prosperous, hospitable lace? ?.eared children, generous, learned, re? fined. in in a crisis, id slate or country, took high place. fat lo one day some fifty years ago W the N rh a daik cloud they Baw _nd /armers, lawyers, merchants, doc? tors, Sen schoolboys, quit work to learn tbe art of war. ind when a iceman dared put foot on soil of mettler S'ate rbry, fl?e hundred strong, proudly marched away Mut shouts asi' prayers and tears to battle Tot truth and ri-jh'?ill ready for the fray. Ind when "Grim visaged war had smoothed Ber wrinkled front" and cruel strife did cease, Borne came tbe remnant, went to woik aod showed tbe world Tbat more renowned than those of war are tbe victories of peace. But now today these men come to their own, Fjr od this "euu-be-shone" spot etinds foi all t'mo _ blcck of stone, statue crowned to tell a story of valorous deeds, r_ch as ha- ne'ei been told before in prose or lbj nie.

But in a world *>o crooked He eeen c I sshsmed to loam, The angels they took pity And called this good thing home. But "-til! there were some people Who had thc nerve to say That the devil eint-ed his t-atbers When he tried to flyaway. There'll be nothing gained by pouting, And yru'd 1 eiter ha\e your fun While jo'i're livug do yrur shouting, When you're dead jou'll need no "mon.'' And jou'll live a great deal longer, ?

Arousing his elster Elna, both kept watch for a lime, when, not hearing anything more, they again letired. Misa .- augbtei wai net aatiified, however, and made ber way alone downstairs. A moment later Mr. Slaughter heaid a noia?, aod .akin*- his revolver, crept downstairs. Seeing a figure In tbe dark? ness, he fited. Tbe shot took efiect in Miss B aoghtei'a neck, and she fell to the fijor, S.riking a natch to look at tbe supposed tnrglai, Mr. Slaughter found his sister. The bullet pissed close to the j jgulat vein, and the young woman nearly rtie-J from tbe loss of blood before physicians arrived.
