kcqekt of the
The Beautiful lied and White
City to Remain as a Monn
, incnt to Gonitis and
(By Silas E Snyder)
Norfolk, Va. Dec 27 When the glor-
. tea, the display, the pomp and circum
stances of the Jamestown Exposition
to be held near Norfolk, Virginia, have
passed into the realm of dreams the
beautiful Colonial City will still stand
an enduring monument to Virginia's
enterprise and energy. Hardly a visitor
to other Expositions has-turned away
without regret in his heart that so
mui-h heauly of architect and landscape
fust be destroyed. : ,'he exposition as
a whole is always the greatest exhibit
at these wonderful creations of man's
genius, and it is painful after seeing
their glories to know that they must at
last be turned over to the vandal and
perish from the earth to live ' thenee-
. forth only in picture or in memory, -
- When on the night of October 31t 1904
"Tresllent "TraiOTsTurned out forever
the lights that made fairyland 'of the
Louisiana Purchase "Exposition, the
assembled multitude turned away with
sobs in their hearts for the occasion had
In it the sadness of death. Cardinal
Gibbons, of Baltimore, when in Norfolk,
the nlli-T. d'iv j protested against this
s.u'.nfii-iMif beauty and genius. He said:
"You have departed from the ways
of other expositions especially in your
buildings. I have always thought it
vandalism to destroy created beauty in
the form of either landscape or buildings
Other expositions have constructed but!
to tear down and leave a void in the'
heart and mind of all who have looked
Make of this a permanent park, which
will stand as a monument of what the
Jamestown Exposition seeks to com
memorate. Other expositions passed to
forgetfuiness. Let this one be an ex-
eeption. Your beautiful grounds and
quaint buildirgg will be a source of
pleasure to tl ousands long after the
. Expositor. closes its gates."
And so it shall be. The Colonial City
la not to be given over to. the wrecker
and the vandal when the gates are
closed in the night of' November 30,
1907, but will endure to delight and in
struct posterity. It is to be permansnt
and this was early decided upon by its
projectors. The plsn adopted U a thing
new is the history of expositions and
an outline will be of interest. The
grounds upon which is located the ex
position was bought outright and is
owned in fee simple by the Jamestown
Exposition Company, incorporated. It
is the most desirable and best located
parcel of grounds in Tidewater Virginia)
and must soon become immensively val
uable as terminal property for railway
and marine interests. Already it has
appreciated materially in value since
the Exposition began to be exploited
and adjacent property, too. has ad'
vanced, so that the Exposition stock'
holders already see dividends in pros
neck All of the utilities including,
water, electric lights and the sewerage
system are buill for permanency atd
will be most complete in every way.
All the stste buildings, tlie shops of
the Arts snd Crafts Village the 'great
Administration building and its .asso
ciated structured and the beautiful
piers extendi ng 2400 feet into Hampton
Roads are built to stand for ages, and
the water front boulevard landscape
architecture, flower gardens and parked
squares are aft designed with the idea
of permanency. Some o' the greatest
exhibit structures will be demolished in
time, but their removal will not not
mar the "pictures"; in truth their ab
sence may accentuate its beauties.
It is certain that this Colonial City
will be the show place of Tidewater
Virginia for a generation or longer. It
will have all the utilities ..J conven
iences of a city within itself and in fact
it will he the nucleus of a new city to
take its place among the progressive
miinic:pilitiea of the tidewater di-
t '. t.

buiUin.? on the expo-' :n p -..! I h 3
the 'i inn of (turdm ': f i " !.-
structure or it may build a temporary
one providing it be removed within six
months after the exposition - closes.
In this latter case no rental is charged
for the ground occupied and in the for
mer case a very, reasonable price is
fixed.;;1. ;' ' i-
In every case, almost, the states will
erect permanent buildings.
After the Exposition the states may
sell their buildings and grounds to the
Jamestown Exposition Company, who
will undoubtedly get first call on the
property, or- to private individuals or
companies who may want the property
for residences, hotels, resorts or other
purposes, as all these state buildings
will be perfectly built and finished and
provided with, every convenience so
that they will be ready made residences,
hotels and club houses aud in many
Coses ready furnished too. f
The club house idea is a popular one
as almost any one of the states and the
smaller exhibit buildings, like thoe of
the Arts and Crafts Village, would
make ideal quarters for boating yacht
ing, automobile, outing and social clubs
and purchaser could be found to day
to take'' them at twice their cost to
build. .V , -r
: The Rr Bat boulevurd, which the mu
nicipality Norfolk and Princess Anne
ett'..-.ly te-V'uifeg at coat ef $200,000
to connect the city with the exposition
grounds, will be an important adjunct
It will be seventy to one hundred feet
wide and seven miles long embellished
with flowers, shade traces and lights
and arranged to provide accomoda tions
for speeding horses, for automobiles
and fur pedestrians. This boulevard
will be a great factor in popularizing
the grounds as a resdrU Letui rejoics
that one dreim city is to endure and be
made a fixture in the world of reality.
Will Receive Large Amount
of the Legislatures Atten
tion. Special Correspondence.
Raleigh Dec 27 It seems that the
next Legislature will be pressed to
push the matter of immigration to
North Carolina, following the lead of
South Carolina where the movement
seerae to be so successful. There will
also be a very earnest effort to seenre
immigrants from the northwest snd
the north, particularly Englisn, Gentian
and Scandinayians, who have been in
the country long enough to become
somewhat acclimated and to know e-
nough of the language to make them!
selves understood. It is the opinion ef
many observant people 'that this class
is more desirable than those from
abroad, as the latter will have so much
more to learn in every way. The New
England states are now congested with
foreigners, and out - west the good
land has to a very great degree been
taken up by homesteaders and great
numbers of the people are pouring over
into Canada. - If thss movement could
be divorted southward it would mean
a good deal. Governor Glenn feels
North Carolina , made a

Governor Glenn's desire that Secretary
Bruner of the Board of Agriculture
shall make a tour of the northwest, il
lustrating North Carolina by a display of
veoouices and perhaps by atereopticon
views and by the very free distribution.
It seems to be quite evident that the
people cf the state want to take hold of
this nutter at last. It is felt batter to
get a few imijrrants in each locality,
let these see for themselves what the
out-look is and then attract their
friends here. In most cases this is
found to be productive of the bast re
sults. Today the city engineer was getting

of the New Masonic Opera House no
doubt remember having seen this clever
company last season, and remember
with satisfaction bttw delighted they
were with their performances, and that
the Williams Comedy Co. presents what
is promised. There -are a few new
faces' with the company this season
who are as clever as the old familiar

maker, with his songs and monologues,
is one of the feature specialties. Others
are Kate Williams, the southern favor

lowest point of temperature was 16 de

the season but the coldest day of any
year so early in the season. While the

sending an I receiving packages, show
ing that the Christmas spirit was abroad
in the air. The public demonstrations
in the way of Christmas trees and par
ties were numerous and presents were
bestowed with lavish hand. "'
. THE ELKS CHISTM AS TREE.
Perhaps as beautiful a sight as has
been seen in this city for a long time
was the scene presented at the court
house at noon. The Elks had prepared
a tree which represented the well known
tradition so dear to the children's hearts
but chief of all was the loads of good
things piled on the tables. That alone
was a sight to sUgger most everyone
and the children gave vent to great ex
pressions of surprise and joy as they
saw the great supply of presents. -
The courtroom was filled with a very
different assembly (rem from the usual
crowd there and the place where so
much crime and wickedness has been
depicted was for the time fillad with
merriment. There were at least 500 or
600 in attendance, the children num.
bering fully 350. The K. of P. band
furnished the music and they added
very much to the pleasure of the occa
sion by their magnificent playing.
Following is the program rendered by

Just before the exercises Santa Claus
whose other name is Jim Dawson came
into the room and was accorded a gen
erous salute from the children. He
was given the glad hand by almost
every kid in the place.
The exeicises were opened by Exalted
Ruler S. W. Hancock with few and ap
propriate remarks and prayer was of
fered by Rev. J. G. Garth. -Then to
the martial strain of the band the
march of the children began. Behind
the rail ready to deliver , the presenU
was the committee of 12 ladies and gen
tlemen who were kept busy dealing out
presents as the throng passed by.
There were big bags of candy and fruit
toys, dolls, mittens, gloves, caps,
books and many other articles both use
ful and amusing and the children were
fairly loaded down with things before
they reached the exit. Last but not
least they were presented with five
bright new pennies and so their Elks
Christmas was spent one bright spot
in the year. They left the room with
their faces beaming with happiness and
a feeling of gratitude for the kindness
of the Elks in their little hearts.
The noble benefactions of the Elks
did not slop there, however, for they
did not forget the poor people shut up
at home. They caused to be dolivered
many baskets filled with provisions of a
substantial nature which were designed
not only ior a Christmas dinner but for
a long time afterwards.
A very pleasing entertainmenb was
given in the basement of the Methodist
church Tuesday evening. The program
consisted of music, recitations Chriat

by Santa Clause.

j- "I wish to inform you that your
wonderful Cuticura has put a stop to
twelve years of misery I passed, with
my son. As an in
fant I noticed on
his body a red spot
and treated same
edies for about five
years, but when
the spot began to -get
larger 1 put
him under the care
of doctors. Under
their treatment the disease spread to
four different parts of his body. The
longer the doctors treated him the worse
it grew. During the day it wouldget
rough and form like scales. At night it
would be cracked, inflamed, and badly
swollen, with terrible burning and itch
ing. When I think of his suffering, it
nearly breaks my heart. His-screams
could be heard down stairs. The suf
fering of my son made me full of misery. .
I had no ambition to work, to eat, nor.
could I sleep.
" One doctor told me that my son's
eczema was incurable and gave it up
for a bad job. One evening I saw an
article in the paper about the wonderful
Cuticura and decided to give it a trial.
"I tell you that Cuticura Ointment
is worth its weight in gold; and when I
had used the first box of Ointment there
was a great improvement, and by the
time I had used the second set of Cuti- .

The cattle near in stall, 1
There cradled in His mother's arms
He slept, the Lord of all.
Now breaks the latest Christmas
Again the angels singe ,
And far and near the children tlironj
Their happy songs to sing.
All h'eaven ib stirred, all earth is glad.
For down the shining way, -
The Lord who came to Bethlehem
Comes yet on ChriBtmas d. y.
