I CAROLINE SOCIAL COURT No Confederate Reunion at Bowling Green?Republicans to Elect Dele? gate? Other Matters of Interest. "Social Court" at Bowling Green brought out a very small crowd Mon? day. There was a full complement of commercial tourist? from Fredericks burg, Richmond, Baltimore and other places, but the farmers were not there. [ They were in the tobacco and corn fields busy as bees. Caroline will raise this season the finest tobacco for years. There is more acreage and larger growth. NO REUNION. The announcement that Caroline County Camp of Confederate Vet? erans will not hold a reunion this year will bring disappointment to a large number of people. It is an annual event that has become dear to not only the old soldiers of Caroline, but their children anda large number of visitors who go to Bowling Creen every yagjt to enjoy it and exchange fraternal greetings. The doing away with these reunions weakens the link that binds these old veterans together and causes the children to forget the deeds of heroism displayed by the veterans and what their mothers suffered from 1801 to '65. The reunions should be kept up. At 2 o'clock Monday, Commander C. T. Smith, who was up to the last minute an advocate for holding the re? union, called a number of the members in the clerk's office and there the ques? tion was discussed with the result as stated above.

SPOTSYLVANIA SUPERVISORS Adopt Road Regulations and Transact Other Business. The board of supervisors of Spotsyl? vania county on Monday adopted a res? olution to enforce the following regu? lation: That any wagon driver, who shall leave his wagon and thereby per? mit his team to run at random over the public roads of the county pnd thus in many instances stop up the side and cross ditches and tear down the hand railings to bridges, or otherwise run said wagons so as to interfere with the public travel over said roads, shall be fined not less than $2.50, nor more than $5 per each offence, which fine will go to the general county road fund.
