tween the rival teams of Portsmouth
and Norfolk.
Portsmouth will be represented by a
strong team, composed of local and
col] ego boys.
Norfolk, ;ls usual. Is confident of vic?
tory, but if Portsmouth plays her old
style aggressive game the victory for
the fourth successive year will be hers.
The Portsmouth team Is compesed of
the following well-know n players: Gra?
ham, centre, is a well-known player of
the "3C team, where he continually dis?
tinguished himself during the season;
Ward, left guard, has played that .posi?
tion for the last three years; Duke,
right guard, is an old University
nlayer, and his record is well known In
football circles; Herbert, formerly of
the V. P. I., will plqy left tackle, the
position In which he so distinguished
himself on his college team during the
season of '97: Myrkle, the old Richmond
College guard, will play right tackle.
In him Norfolk will lind an aggressive
player; Wemple, one of the pioneers of
the Portsmouth football team, will
play the position he is so capable of
lining?left end; Frazer, the .team-mate
of Wemple, will play the other end,
and these who saw his work last year
know his ability as an end; Kaufman,
who played "on the Richmond College
team durii.g the season of '?ti and '!i7,
will play quarter. Wo all know "Jack"
as a hard and conscientious player;

play right half. He. like the left
half, i.s a good ground gainer and de?
fensive player; Peckham, full back.will
play his old style game. He formerly
played on the Columbia A. C, of Wash?
ington. I). C, but for the last four
years has been r.ne of the Portsmouth

a thing of the past, and 1S9!) was born
unto us.
Ai l<r.:'0 p. m. watch-night services
were held In a number of the churches,
which were WO.I attended. The ram

heard t Hing to the world that a new

added to by the fire-cracker, &c, made
considerable excitement.
Numbers of those who were out wish?
ed each other a happy new year and
ninny pleasant returns. The old year,
which has Just gone, has left many
things to be remembered. To many It
was prosperous and full of Joy; to
others it brought misery and woe.
Numerous friends have passed over the
river to that land where sorrow will
be no more.
The VirginianrPilOl during that time
was a happy visitor to many a peraon,
and brought to tllem the news of the

Portsmouth, Va., De6. 31, 1S98.
Portsmouth (DfTlce Vlrglnlan-Pilot:
There is an old adage' which says,
"forewarned is forearmed," and as
our merchant sailors are. the greater
paft of their time ort the briny deep,
it behooves us as fellow beings to warn
them of the dangers from, land sharkes
when they enter port. And in connec?
tion With the foregoing there is noth?
ing Which would suggest a better way
than the following article, taken from
the December number of the "Signs of
the Times." published at Oakland. Cal.
The point is well taken and it Is an ad?
mirable chance for some of our phil?
anthropic citizens to show what metal
they are made of:
"Christian Endeavor is the name of a
handsome gasoline launch recently de?
dicated to ship missionary" work on San
Francisco Hay. It Is designed tor vis?
iting incoming vessels, as soon as pos?
sible after their arrival, to warn the
crews ngnlnst places where they would
be likely to fall into temptation; also
to point them to respectable places for
association and lodging. The object is
commendable und the little boat is well
fitted for the work."

conscious condition, with an empty
