others, were boring a well to a deep

The day previously a charge had
been la.id, but it had never explod

well windlass to investigate. Half
way down he was heard to cough

"there was a sudden jerking of the
rope, which remained taut. As no

Stephen Snipes, another colored man
volunteered to go down to his as

other rope, but had gone* only a
short distance when he was heard
calli'ng the men above to drag him
back quickly. When he came out
of the well he was exhausted and
panting for breath. The discovery
of the poisonous fumes halted im
mediately efforts to rescue Left
wich, but a hook was secured and
this was so manipulated that it
caught in hi's clothing and he was
pulled out, and found to be dead.
The gas is said by chemists to have

RICHMOND THEATRE
Although comparatively new to
Paramount audiieneeS, Bryant Wash

ing of admirers grow's vastly with
each new picture ,in which he ap
pears. All who saw him in ''The

"Venus /tn the East," will be grati
fied to know that in "A Very Good
Young Man," at the Richmond to
night he dees not appear as a small
town' boob, but as a young man
?who is a model of perfection?so
?perfect in fact, that the girl he

turns him down. One of the most
delightful comedies in which Mr. and
Mrs. Sidney Pirew ever appeared
Which will be shown with the above.

To the Citizens of Alexandria
The following gentlemen have been appointed a
committee to solicit funds for the Children's Home
of Virginia at Richmond, and have been requested to
raise $1,200.00 as Alexandria's proportion of the
$150,000 drive.
The committee feels that they have neither the
time nor inclination to make a canvass for this in
stitution owing to the numerous demands made upon
our people in the past, and also feel that this is a
most important work and should be most liberally
supported by our people, and are, therefore, bring
ing the mater to your attention for your considera
tion and help in this way.
Help save the children of Virginia, our most val
uable asset. *

To Our Patrons
Alexandria, Va., Juno 2, 1019.
In line with our progressive banking methods, and to meet the de
mands of our patrons, we are installing on July 1st, an up-to-date Safe
Deposit Department, under the personal supervision of one of our
officers.
This has been made necessary from the fact that a larpre number
of our depositors owning Liberty Bonds and other securities desire a
safe place for their keeping.
It is our plan to enlarge the number of Safe Deposit Boxes, and
make a rental charge to meet the operating expenses of this Depart
ment. This charge will become effective July 1st, 1919, and a bill will
be sent cut at that time to the holders of boxes, and if any desire
to make any change we will be glad to have thorn call before the
bills are rendered for the ensuing year.
