Christmas 1904- "The blowing of the fox-hunter's horn."

Christmas in New Kent.
(Special to The Times-Dispatch.)
ROXBURY, VA., December 26- The Christmas of 1904 was one of the most quiet ever observed in New Kent, not a gun fired or firecrack was heard to remind of the happy event. 
The blowing of the fox-hunter's horn or the cry of the dogs can be heard on every hand, however. 
The pound party and ball to be given at Liberty Hall Friday night, is looked forward to with much pleasure. City music has been engaged for the occasion.

-December 27, 1904
