scape Architect is Grow
ing Unique Enclosure
For The Grounds.
Norfolk, Va., Aug. 6. The James
town Ter-Centennial Exposition, to be
no ot Hampton Roads, j
"ear wononc, in iwi. win imv .hv
beautiful and novel fence to enclose its
extensive grounds. : Tne design is a
new departure from the old-style high
board fence, seen at former expositions.
The Jamestown fence Will be beautiful
well as useful, a quality that was
sadly lacking at the other exposition.
Owing to the fact that the landscape
feature of the Jamestown celebration
is to be one of the great Attractions at
the exposition, the Idea presented it
self to Mr. Charles H. Pratt, Superin
tendent of the grounds, that it would
be an excellent plan to include the sur
rounding fence re one of the features
of the landscape design, thus giving
the whole site the appearance of a
beautiful private park, Buch as might
be seen surrounding some of the royal
palaces of foreign countries.
The total distance around the expo
sition grounds is about 17,000 feet, but
the site is so situated on Sewell's Point
thot only about 11,000 feet of fence had
to be erected, the waters of Hamton
Roads making a natural boundary for
The fence, which is constructed of
wire mesh and heavy barb, is covered
with vines systematically planted so as
to make an impenetrable barrier of
beautiful foliage, giving the effect of
an enormous hedge. The wire mesh,
which is of the best quality, is about
five feet wide, costing $130 a mile.
Above this mesh are stretched three
strands of heavy barb, bring the total
height up to seven feet Surmounting
the whole, and stretched on cross
beams at the top of each post are five
more lines of barbed wire, making the
fences most formidable barrier.
The vines for the fence were planted
in May of 1906, and as they are native
to the Southern climate they are already
of a very dense growth. At each post
has been planted a trumpet vine, with
marvelous success, and between each
post a crimson rambler rose bush has
been planted. ..Between the trumpet
vines and the rose bushes, honeysdckle
has been trained, jBO that the entire
fence will be covered with a fragrant
mass of flowering beauty.
Mr. Lavalle a distinguished architect
from Boston who was the guest of Mr.
Pratt at the Exposition grounds recent
ly, was most enthusastic about the gen
era) landscape design, and especially in
regard to the fence, about which he
said: "It is one of the most beautiful
and novel things I have ever seen, and
1 would feel that my trip had been am
ply repaid if I had seen nothing else. "
At the Lewis and Clarke Exposition
at Portland, last year, the authorities
erected an immense water tank, in a
prominent position on the grounds. The
tank, being of a plain wooden construct
ion, and was looked upon as an eyesore
which marred the general appearance
of the Exposition until Oskar Huben,
Director of Works, conceived the idea
of growing vines over the entire tank,
Within a few months, the vines, which
with great rapidity, in that section of
the country, had grown over the entire
structure adding a unique feature to
the general display. Thus it is seen that
with the aid of nature, some of the
homeliest structures can be made most
This has been the plan upon which Mr.
Pratt has based his work, and when
the numerous gates of the Exposition
swing open the visitors, as they pass
into the beautiful grounds. Will think
as one wan already bas said, that they
are entering into a "New Eden.".
. Two Deaths In Maysville.
On Saturday morning, July 28th,
Ada, the fourteen year old daughter of
Mr. and;Mrs, J. O. . Ervm, died at her
home In Maysville of typhoid fever.
At the time of Ada's death Mrs. Ervin
was so seriously sick with the same
fever, that the attending physicians,
Dra. Shaw Hammonds and Kafer, as
sisted by Miss Sallie Powell, a trained
nurse from the Stewart Sanatorium,
thought it best no to inform Mrs. Er
vin of the death of her child. Every
thing in the power of these faithful
physicians was done for the patient
but despite of all medical aid six days
later, on the morning of August the
third, without any knowledge of the
death of her child, the dark and solemn
shadows of death again visited the
grief stricken home- and took from it
that mostjaithful and loved relative,
wife and mother. ' "
As a christian lady she will be mourn
ed byfather, mother, sister, husband,
children, relatives and friends, but we
would not forget that this, our loss,
has carried them to that celestial home
where God in His Infinite power reigns
supreme, and where peace and joy and
love has conquerred sorrow and pain
end death. Our sorrow and afflictions

Greensboro, Aug. 3. Sheriff Harris,
of Cabarrus county, was here today en
route to Raleigh to which place he was
taking Susie Hannon, the twelve year
old murderess of H. Y, Stack in Con
cord. The killing occurred last April
She was sentenced to five years in the
penitentiary. Governor Glenn had no
tified Mr. Means, her attorney, that he
would hear a personal presentation of
the case by him either today or Satur
day. Dave Hannon, the father of the
girl, was not able to furnish the neces
sary funds and so Mr. Means did not go
to Raleigh. Conditional pardon was
asked for a few weeks after the trial
that the girl might be placed in a re
formatory or private family during the
term of her sentence, The request and
petition is what the governor, has here
tofore refused to allow. The girl was
taken to Raleigh to be committed in the
penitentiary to begin serving out her
sentence. -. '

shot Cotton got the lead instead of the

by negro criminals, and the successful
execution of the one this week, is caus

may be the result should Bohannon be

Is more fun to see a man read a puff on

The" kind hearted one goes home and
reads it to his wife and then goes
around to the office, and pays what he
owes. The successful business man,
who advertises regularly and makes
money by it, immediately starts out to
