Buries Her QoaJ Pup.
(Special to The Tlmes-Dlspatch.) [
COMORN, VA., August 1.?August Is
generally looked forward to by country
tioulc as a timo of rest and holidays,
end the advent of the month Is always
welcome to the young and the old ullko,
The growing crops are pretty generally
worked out ond "laid by," and the bulk
o? the whtjat and oat crop threshed out
and housed by the fust of August, so that
thc farmer:., laborers and nearly all class?
es are ready for a month o? rest. It Is
not at all strungo, then, that August
Is the time for "protracted meetings" at
the country churches. Everybody who
bus any leisure at all, has it in August,
when watermelons are ripe; so there Is
no such thing us Ilio ?'suinmer revival
meetings" without multitudes of people
and wutermelons in prolusion. August,
IOCS, will bo no exception-will be spent
by rural citizens Just as all previous Au?
gusts havo been spent by preceding gen?
erations. Already tho "big meetln's"
have been announced for all the churches.
Whartoii Grove Baptist camp meeting,
In Lancaster county, opened a ?eck ago,
and has attracted vast crowds from all
parts of tho Northern Neck and other
sections. Marvin. Grove Methodist camp
meeting opened yesterday, and tlio multi?
tudes are wending their way thither.
Those who cannot Journey so far to a
csmp meeting havo been amply provided

The records ln the clerk's office show
that the first Thursday In each month
has been county court-day hero in King
George continuously since the year 1721?
1. e., for 1S2 years past tho citizens of
King George have been accustomd to at?
tending their County Court on the first
Thursday In each and every month.
The "smartest" dog ln King George
county Is a female collie owned by Mr.
Henry H. Hunter, who resides in the
courthouse village. Thl3 canine's almost
human intelligence has been attracting
attention for several years, and Its ex?
traordinary "manners" has made It well
nlgl? famous. Recently one of her little
family of puppies died, and, In her mani?
fest "grief, she carried the littlo
"corpse" under the clerk's bffico and
lead It out." Two days later, while Mr.
Hunter was trying to devise some way of
reaching and removing the nuisance from
the hiding ?Mace under tho building, tho
mother dog crawled through a small open?
ing in the brick wall, dragged the dead
puppy out, carried It to a neighboring
field, where she dug a hole ln tho
ground, and buried it as carefully and
almost as completely as could havo been
done by human hands. Mr. H. H. Hun?
ter, clerk of tho court: E. L. Hunter and
County Treasurer H. B. Cogbill, all of
whom are gentlemen of high standing and
unquestioned veracity, vouch for the cor?
rectness of tho story of this wonderful
collie. ; .

ty in order, under a system to supersede

by manv that tho county will have bet?
ter roads under this plan than It had at
any time under the costly contract sys?
tem, which was abandoned In May of
this year. .... -,
Some of tho "reaches" along the Po?
