I he selection of Qordonsvillo i> final, and was made only after it waa seen that the city officials of Richmond were not inclined to make an appropria? tion to hting the troops here. The State wanted the city to put the Kair Grounds into a piinitary condition, ami, while there was no refusal to do so, the dilatory tactics of city of? ficials lead to the belief that nothing would bo done. Colonel Allen Potts anil Colo? ne,! Joe Lane Stern have both inspected the site selected for ii. encampment, and are satis Hctl that it is sufficiently large enough to accomodate a whole division of infantry, where Vir? ginia will only have three reej III.ids, one separate battalion ,ni.I several auxiliary orgnniza i mils in camp. The site is three quarters of a mile to the northwest of the town, and is near the Chesa? peake and Ohio Railway. The company has agreed to inn a switch directly Into the grounds fur the BCOomodatloil of the ir. .ips, and the city offioittls of Gordonsville have offered many inducements to the military authorities. Being at an altitude of 7.".(? feet, it is not believed thai the in.ops will suiter from the heat, particularly as the nights are generally cool. At this heigh) .squitoes are not bothersome, and as there will be little or nothing to distract the attention uf the men, it is expected that lunch will be accomplished at llie camp. r'irst Lieutenant Theodore M. Chase, an instructor at West Point, has been ordered by the War Department to act as ?inartermaster. He reached Itichmond yesterday, and had ?i lengthy conference with Ad jut,mi (ieneral Sale in regard to the arrangements for the camp, lie will leave today, in.I will report in time for the encampment. I hat no excuses from attend? ing camp will bo taken, was indicated by General Sale, w ho Mated that every militiaman wan expected to do his military dtlty this year.

Warning to the summer vaca? tionist to study the health con? ditions of the resort he proposes to patronize is given in a apeoial bulletin of the Slate Board of Heilt Ii. made public today. The Board points out that, many city people, in their anxiety to leave the city during the oppressive summer Benson, choose n summer reaort pri? marily for its location and often without the slightest regurd for its sanitation. In the past, this has led to serious sickness and frequently to the appearance of typhoid among the families of vacationists. "It is undoubtedly true," says the Board, "that sanitary conditions at the summer re? sorts of Virginia are better than they have ever been in the past. There are many Bummer hotels and cottages lo which U icily man may send his family ! with the assurance that their health will be adequately pro? jected. It ia, however, highly 'important that prospective visitors ascertain' in advance the sanitary'facilities of the re? sorts they propoBe to patronize and satisfy themselves in ad? vance that good water, good milk, proper-sewerage and pro? tection from flies are to be had.
