ER MORE! HAS BEEN THE QAPITAL OF COV INGTON COUNTY 90 YEARS. \ Nall Mattheson, the Builder of Two or Three Frame Courthoueee on the Old 8lte la Still Living. Hale and Hearty V: 1 Dally News Special Collins, October 16.—The board of supervisors of Covington county are advertising for sale the property owned by the county at Williamsburg. This property consists of the lot of land on which Btood the old temple of justice, a brick chancery clerk's office and the old jail building. It —'bo sold to the highest bidder for cash, and this will end the historic old town of Williamsburg. The name that has stood on the map for 88 years,' now passes away for newer things. Covington county was created ( In 1819 by the legislature, and the county seat located at Williamsburg, when the board of supervisors began the erection of the first court house in 1822, court being held in a small log house during the erection. This building served the county for many years, when In the 50's It was con sumed by Are. The next building was erected by Uncle Nell Mathlson, on the spot that is now 'being advertised for sale, who lived to see the old building totter to Its fall from age. He again Becured the contract for the erection of his second building and erected the next new one In 1894; in 1902 this building was burned and went the way of all the worlu, and « Hattiesburg Heights Proper H.

Uncle Nell was still among the liv ing. In 1906 the county seat was ordered moved to Collins, this order being sanctioned by the electors of the county, and ordered the present handsome $75,000 building erected. This building is now nearing com pletion, and Neil Mathlson, will doubtless live to see It completed. He Is uncle of J. T. Mathlson, the present chancery clerk, and has not only out lived the three court houses, but has outlived the old historic county seat of Williamsburg created in 1819, and still lives to recognize Collins as the county seat, and Instead of looking upon the $3,000 buildings heretofore erected for a temple of justice, Is able to look upon the present handsome structure with the same pride as the younger citizens. He Ib one of the few whose age Is closing in on one hundred years, and is still able 'to transact business, and can even read without the aid of glasses. He still lives—Williamsburg does not. After serving its people for 88 years, It was suddenly cut down by the present progressive age. The county seat Is gone, the postofTice has gone and given away for the rural route. The name is now obsolete, and time in Its flight, decrees that the ground on which It stood must be sold under the hammer. It has served its purpose, and memories will forever around it hang. The old buildings are fast de caying, tlfe soil is being carried away by the time washed ditches, but ground It all memories will forever mantle wtih greenness and verdure their ruin and decay.

By her performance of "Zira" at the Academy last night, Miss Mabel Montgomery has firmly established herself in the estimation of Richmond theatergoers. As Zira she had al ready made a most favorable Impres sion. and, therefore, much was ex pected of her. That these expecta tions were fully realized, was amply shown in the enthusiastic manner in which the audience received Miss Montgomery's portrayal of the title role of the play. At the end of the second act there were no less than six curtain calls, and Miss Montgom ery was finally compelled to gratify the evident wish of the audience by expressing In words her appreciation of this demonstration. This she did most modestly and becomingly, and the audience witnessed the further unusual spectacle of a "speech" be fore the curtain by a woman.
