CONFEDERATE REUNION AND THE FA IK A correspondent suggest-* a re? union of the i>th Virginia Cavalry. We understand that at Winchester at the last day of the fair they have annually a great Confederate reunion and that immense crowds attend and it is an occasion of great profit and pleasure to all the people, besides financially the fair makes money out of it. If the matter is taken up here in time we can no doubt do here what has been done in Winchester, and while it should be a general re? union of ex-Confederates.t here should be a special reunion, say of Rrax ton's Battery, 9th Virginia Cavalry, Cooper's Battery and 8Mb, 40th.47th and 55th Regiments of Infantry. If this is to be done work should be commenced at once. We have no doubt that the Daughters of the Confederacy would assist. The Confederate Choir should come and Confederate songs should be sung and one or two short addresses should be made. The Fair Associa? tion need not be at any expense; in? deed, we repeat, it would make money by it, and the occasion would be taken advantage of by ex Confederates and their families to deal liberally with our merchants. It could be made a great occasion, a gala day. But now is the time to take the- matter up. It has been suggested before, but so late that r.o real practical good could In? dune and no large reunion held. In order to make it successful an effective, strong, vigorous committee should be appointed that will work for it in? telligently and energetically. We be? lieve it could be made and should be made the greatest day in the history of the fair. Things are not working so well these days with President Taft and in consequence he is becoming a pes? simist. Time was when he could not speak in too high terms of the glorious prospects for prosperity and happiness this country had the right to expect. Indeed he had a good word for everything and every? body. But times have changed. His administration has been running against snags and bumping against hidden rocks to such an extent that Mr. Taft is at last looking around for the cause of all the trouble, and naturally he has not found any fault With himself. According to him the newspapers are very much in fault. They are knockers and muckrakers, which draw their vitality from sen? sations which they create. The lawyers are degenerating and are as a profession unfair to the courts and the public. The best men do not any longer seek the ministry as a profession, and the whole machinery of our governmental institutions has slipped a cog and is going to the bow-wows. It does not seem to have occurred to Mr. Taft that his administration is ramming down the throats of the people a tariff bill they do not want, and that perhaps the kinks would work out if he and those who advise him would give the people what they want and de? mand. Three years ago, according to the report of the International Com? merce Commission for the year end? ing June 30, 1907, 610 passengers were killed in railroad accidents in the United States and 13,041 were injured. At that time the railroads in the United States had the unenvi? able record of killing and maiming more people than the railroads of any other country. It now appears by the reports of the same commis? sion that there was a reduction of 200 in the number killed in 1908 and 1,500 fewer injured, and now our railroads are declared to be the saf? est in the world. This result of agi gation is a great source of gratifi? cation to the people and a great sav? ing of dollars and cents to the rail? roads. Atlantic City, not to be outdone, is to have an ocean flying machine contest. Well, after all. with a tug under you the oceaa is a nice soft place to drop in. Speaker Cannon's first ray of light comes in with the re-nomination of John Dalzell, and even he came near getting beat in rock-ribbed Pennsyl MAY FLOAT OYSTERS Sat Water Mast Be Sane as That from Which They Con?. In a decision by the U. S. Depart? ment of Agriculture, it was announced that the floating of oysters would be permitted by the department if the water in which the Hosting was done was of the same saline content as the water in which the oysters were grown. According to the testimony gives at the hearing of the oyster shippers st the department some time ago, this will not plump up the oyster and make it stay fat, as in the case when it is float? ed in fresh water. The department ruled that if oysters for interstate shipment are given a drink of fresh water, they must be marked on the container "floated oys? ters." If they are floated in water that is polluted, they will be considered adulterated within the meaning of the pure food law. ORANGE Accident-Funeral- Other Items. Unionville. Va., June 7, 1910. Mr?.
