Celebration at Big Stone Cap on July 2nd and July 3rd, 1915
Final game of the Virginia Coal Field League for the championship' for 11)15
between the leading two teams of the contest now going on between Keokee,
Dante; 3t?neg? and Big Stone Gap. From $12,000.00 to $15,000.00 ia being
spent ibis year by the four teams. Each o( these towns of the Southwest arc de?
termined to have'the winning team, and the game ol ball on |uly 3rd will be the
greatest base ball game ever seen ill this section, and more lovers of the game will
sec tins Iuly 3rd game than lias ever witnessid .1 ball game in the Southwest.
Aviator Wi S. Luckey will tty in his aeroplane on July 2nd and July 3rd.
LucHey-is America's famous-aviator, Has earned this reputation in his Bights in
the United States and in Canada. I Iis crowning night being the winning of the
great American Aviation Race ov< t the course from Statcn Island over bay. and
rivers and around New York City in a 43 mile gale, against all foreign and Ameri?
can competitors.
The New York World says <?( the race: "Me Hew up the Hudson 100 miles
an hour." The New York Tribune says ol the race: "The lu'gli wind rocked Iiis
craft- the gale of 43 miles an hour made the spectators shake their heads as it
seemed that no craft could live in such a gale, but Luckey the last of the compet?
itors to go ..up?his too, horse power Curtismotoi roared defiance to the storm as
mcteoVlikd the big black car leaped into the wind;"
We have mam New York papers (hat praised l.uckev for this feat, and this
is the man we have to Hy for iitt on July and and July 3rd. We have investigated
36 of his Hights. I lave sent men t<? personally investigate, ami have letters from
many cities in this country, as well as Canada, where Luckey's Lime is known?all
say Luckey is fearless, daring ami Ins sensational living wonderful. His War
Maiioeuvers. His Aerial Bomb Dropping, His Passenger Carrying, His Dip ol
Death. His Ocean Wave. His Spiral Clyde (that dangerous feat at which so many
aviators have lost their lives), and that rocking Aerial Turkey Trot, all these have
made L?cfeey famous in the cities 61 New York; in Prcsscott, Ontario: in Detroit.
Mich.; iri Fast mi. Mtl.; in Smith Falls, Canada; in Berlin, N. M.jinCharlotte, N.
YV;in, (Sharlesldii, S. C; in Orange1, Miss.: in Harrisburg, Fa.; in Hammonds
port. N. Y. The Charleston Cornier of July ?ist, 101 |. says: ''At the Isle ?l
fines Luckey Hew too feet itb?y? the ground 00 miles an hour dyer the heads of
thousands of spectators. The committee told him one trip over the course would
be sufficient on account of the high wind, and only his nerve made him repeat his
dangerous dashes five times."
This is the kind of man we have employed at Iiis price to tiy at Big Stone Gap
on July 2nd and Jul\ 3rd. Different features each day. Thrilling and sensational
and we want you to see them. A treat that will hardly be repeated in Wist: County.
Under the supervision of the United States Government Department of Mini s
the lulu: demonstration of mine explosions will he a tremendous feature on both
days. We are constructing a tube hkj feet long and 10 feet high and will have a
realistic mint: explosion with black powder. After tin: explosion helmet work will
be given in the tube. Then safety powder tests in same tube will he demonstrat?
ed, livery safeguard will be taken by the Government hien, who are sent hcire
from Washington, to prevent accidents at the lime the explosion takes place.
This is not only a great educational feature hut a sensation that will long be re?
membered by those who witness it. Sec special circular On Mine Rescue ami First
Aid Work fur particulars.
