Richmond horsemen nro congratulating
Colonel Barton Grundy upon his having
fit-cured from Hw? colobTnlfd breeding
farm of Miller nnd Slbley, of Franklin,
Pennsylvania, tho famous Kreuch conch
horse stallion .Tavahftla fby Aptmdel; first
cam, Rapide), nuil bringing him home lo
enrich Iho ?piiillty of Vlrsinln horses with
his line "blue" blood. Colonel Orundy's
acquaintance with Jnvennls has existed
tor n lung While, nnd the evidence of his
admiration for the stock which that thnr
t ?ghbrod represents Is noen In his two
hiindsoYnc horses, S.'ipho nnd Nizam, both
of them prize-winners at the Rlclunoiitl
Horse Show nnd the Deep Run Hunt Club
fcprlng meetings.
Javanais was Imported to the United
Btatcs In IMO by Dr, Seward Webb, of
Now York, who sold him to Miller and
Slbley. from whom he comes tn Colono)
Urundy. He wns hitched nnd driven nt
onco upon his arrival to Bloonilngdnlo
farm, on the Hermitnge Boati, where Mr.
Harry C. Benttio, M. P, 11. of the Deep
Run Hunt Club, will have chnrge of him.
Many drivera und hunting men woro nt
L'loonilngdnle yesterday afternoon to seo
tho importation, anil wort? delighted with
his superb lines and nuble cnrrlnge, The
horse was bred by D? Sloiir do Gourbsvlllo
at Manche, Pratico. He took third prize
nt the great Government llorst' Show nt
St. i/o, Franco, In June, 1W), and was
bought and shipped nt once by Dr. Webb,
who was offered in exchange for him
the first-prize winner and ?tulle a lump
of money. Javanais took first prize in his
class at tho National Horse Show at Mud
Ison Squnro Garden. New York, in 1S9D
and In 1891. Since then ho has been kept
nt the breeding farms.
In "personal appearance " Javanais Is
colored nil over ? rich seal' brown; bo

upward of thirteen hundred pounds. His
feet aro perfection, anil his legs and
shoulders, thighs and hips aro superbi}'

with elegant carriage of head, he Is close?
ly ribbed and has tho roundness of barrel
characteristic of his breed. He Is of a
very gent?o disposition, handles quietly,

spirit nnd with line, quick acllon In the
walk or the trot.
It docs horsemen good to see such ?
horso and noto tho standard of possibili?
ties In breeding, which he presents. It Is
not Improbable, In view of thin Importa?

hackneys, as Illustrated by the product
of Senator Fairfax's farm, and for her

About two miles northeast of Staunten,
In one of the most beautiful sections ot
the Valley of ??^????, is Lewis' Fort,
u small and Insignificant looking dwell?
ing. 11 is built In the most primitive
Bhapo, nnd its sole peculiarity, appar?
ently, Is the fact that It Is half stone,
linlf frame. The frame work Is of rather
recent date, but the stone foundation has
withstood the ravages of many genera?
tions; and Is to-day mio of the oldest nnd
most Vnluabto landmarks In the western
pnrl of the Slate of ??^????. Many an
Indian wnrwhoop luis sounded around Its
walls, nnd many a luckless? brave, In the
olden days, was sent to the happy hunting
ground by the rifles of tho dauntless de?
fenders. For many years It was the only
ploro of refuge In this section from the
scalping knife of the savage, and when?
ever there wns an Indian alarm tho wo
men and children nocked to this old fort
for safety. The heavy oaken door Is In
Itself a curiosity. It Is constructed of
seasoned oak boards, doubled, nnd slanting
in opposi/e directions, forming so tough
and firm a barrier that when a carpenter
was recently engaged to cut nn opening
through It for a window ho remarked that
he would as soon drill a bolo through tho
stone wall of the fori Itself.
Such Is Lewis' Fort, as it now appears.
It was built In the year 1732 by John
Lewis, who was formerly a native of
Ireland, but who, In an unfortunate alter?
cation, slow nn oppressivo Irish lord, fled
to this country, nnd wns the first white
man to settle In toh county of Augusta,
where he founded the city of Stauntoh
on the stream which still boars his name.
The location of the fort Is of small strat?
egic value, being built on ? lower spur
of a hill. Instead of the hill Itself, but ns
the Indians had no artillery, this mattered
little. The mnhi consid?ration with tho
settlers was the water supply, nnd this
wnn furnished by a large spring, just be?
low their stronghold.
On the hill nbovo the fort, In the sec?
tion which he so bravely defended, Is
John Lewis' grave, dismantled, broken by
the vandalism of curiosity seekers, nnd
almost totally forgotten. Although the
ground around it Is Unti 1 ted, but little
Undergrowth Is near, and the grave over?
looks that bountiful country which Ilio
old pioneer contributed so largely In mak?
ing tho garden spot of Virginia, and
which he loved so dcnrly on account of
the quietude nnd freedom lie afterwards
found there. At the bend of the grave
has grown a walnut tree, tall and straight
und solitary, putting forth Ils sheltering
blanches only at the top, and standing
like a lone sentinel over tho bonos of
the departed.
Instead of being overgrown with briars
nnd weeds and covered wHh blackened
moss, the ninrlile which marks the spot
has bleached alike beneath the scorching
suns of suminer nnd the chilling binata
of winter, nnd parts of It look ns fresh
ha when first lnltl so many years ???.
The Inscription can be plainly read, and
Is n s follows:
"Here Uo the remains of John Lewis,
who slew the Irish lord, settled Augusta
county, located tho town of Staunton,
nnd furnished five sons to fight the but?
tle.": of the American Revolution. Ho was
the son of Andrew Lewis nnd Mary Col?
limili, wns born In Donegal county, Ire?
land, BITS, nnd died February 1, 17iV.\ aged
eighty-four years. He was a brave man.
a true patriot, and a friend of liberty
throughout the world."
There Is ? brief Lathi Inscription, which
cannot now he deciphered.
The grnvc of ? man who settled ? coun?
ty, who founded one of tlio most nourish-;
Ing towns In the State, who was a leader
In the early Indian wars, and who fur?
nished five sons to fight the battles of
the American Revolution Is dismantled
and nlmost forgotten. The stranger pass?
ing the solitary spot pauses to read the
Inscription, nnd then passes on In won
?remont thnt no fitter monument has
been raised to perpetuate the memory of
such a man.

Governor Montague Takes Part in Ex?
ercises at Oakwood Cemetery.
The State offices nt tho Cnpltol nnd
Library wore closed yesterday it noon,
and Governor Montague nnd most of
the officers nttended the memorial exer?
cises nt Oakwood.
Among Governor Montague's visitors
was President F. W. Bontright, of Rich?
mond College, and they wore together for
some time in the executive ofllce.
The Governor received a numher of
other visitors nnd transacted a large
nniount of routine business before going
to Oakwood.
Secretnry Ritchie said Ills Excellency
still had the petition of Wilson Bryant,
the condemned Wise county man, before
him, and would not determine it within
the next few days.
Bryant Is condemned to hang on Fri?
day next, for the murder of ????????? ?'??

days urging tho Governor to commute
the sentence.

HEN we started to man?
ufacture DUNLOP PA?
TENT ten years ago,
our capacity was 350
barrels dally. The ex?
cellent quality of the
Flour soon took the nubile fancy;
one housekeeper would tell another
of the splendid baking results, the
delicious bread and pastry It
makes, until we were forced to
gradually enlarge our capacity,
fldit to 500 barrels, then to 600,
then to 800, next to 1,000, and at
this point we found It was necee
sary to buy or build another mill,
At this time the Gallego Mills
were purchased, all of the anti?
quated machinery torn out from
baserqent to roof, and a splendid
new mill of 1,200 barrels dally ca?
pacity was Installed, giving us,
with our two flour mills, a dally
capacity of 2,200 barrels.
The growth of our milling busi?
ness from one of modest begin?
nings to Its present magnificent
proportions Is due to our produc?
ing a Flour that stands unequalled
In the opinion of the best bread
makers. There le a flavor, a taste,
a delicious taste, in bread made
from DUNLOP PATENT, that Is
entirely abeent from the bread
made from other flours. One can
make a meal on bread from DUN?
LOP PATENT, and enjoy every
mouthful. Bread eaters on four
continents all testify to Its un?
varying excellence.
Here la a letter from one firm
of Importers, who are the largest
Importers of Flour In the whole of
Great Britain. These gentlemen
buy our Flour In ship-loads! their
purchases are dlotrlbuted all over
England and Ireland. To give
some Icioa of the demand we will
say that we have had at Newport
News, awaiting steamers, 40,000
bags, or 200 car-loada, or the
equivalent of 10 train-loads of 20
care each. Here Is what they say

Question?Where does Judge Campbell
Answer?Whore does he stand?
Ilie curfew bell did not ring out, for-?
sooth, because, 'twos said,
Thnt Harry Glenn had not, ecog, gond
to IiIb downy bed.
The bell was tolled some years ago, bo-<
cause 'twas freely told "
That youngsters should not stay out lato?
as In the days of old;
There were no lights of any kind, elee-?
trie sparks or gas,
Ana through the streets pedestrians could!
not with safety pass.
But things have chnnged In modern tlmes^
ns we can plainly see,
And folks should not stay out at nlgh?
tho law should plainly be.
Wo have beon Invited by tho Olympia;
Club, of Manchester, to make a few re?
marks at the entertainment to be given
at Lender Hall next Thursday night for
the West Point sufferers from the fire.
??? accept the Invitation, and wish to
hereby extend our thanks for the oppor?
tunity, for we believe thnt everybody
should contribute at least twenty-flvo
cents to the cause, for we don't know when
our house mny be consumed by flames,
and then we hope the Olympins will como
forward to help us out.
We wish they would come forward now
and help In paying our back rent, so
we could stop dodging the landlord.
At any rate, we will do all we can to
help our fellow-sufferers at AVest Point
out of a hole, and wo only hope that
Mr. O. Guvernntor may feel inclined to
ask us down to his pince of entertainment
to tnko ? few days* rest from tho tur?
moil and strife thnt comes to us at tha
first of every month.
When slimmer comes wo always feel
like going off Into tho underbrush and
getting full of cheegers.
As a rule, cheegers are not good thing?
to carry around, but under existing cir?
cumstances we feel thnt we could go
out and pick huckleberries all day, 80
we might get full of cheegers.
When ? fellow has cheegers on him h?
forgets nil his troubles, nnd that's what
wu want to do. .
It Is with regret thnt we record the
fact that Mr. Barrett was not at tha
meeting of the Manchester Finance Com-j
Ono of tho main reasons why we go to
these meetings Is to hear Mr. Barrett
make his speeches.
We like to hear him tnlk, and wo hopo
thnt he will make It a point not to miss
any more meetings, for wo always get
some good tips from him.
With the filling out nf the leaves on tho?'
trees, tho thoughts of buttermilk nnd sweetj
potato pie como to us, nnd with these
things under our vest we feel thnt we owe
to tho sweet young things at Klrkwood's
mnny thanks.
There Is nothing on the bill of fare
that pleases us more than buttermilk,
nnd upon that we feel that all our pon-'
derous weight Is duo.
