youngest of the graduating class and
the youngest probably who has ever

yield is very promising. Perhaps in
this experiment of Farmer Waltons
we have the solution of the oat prob

put old winter in the 9 hole. We shall
watch friend Walton's experiment

MR. EDITOR: Saturday Jnne
1st was a day that will be long re
membered by the children of An
tioch. It was the occasion of the
annual picnic of the Antioch Sun
day school. Notwithstanding the
intense heat anil backwardness of
our farmers, the fair and lovely
daughteis tanned youths and
bright and interesting children
mingled together for one day's
Mr. Joe Cantelou, a prominent
young lawyer of the Edgeiiald bar,
was the orator of the day. No
better sslection could have been ?
made. Mr. Cantelou completely
captivated the people, and we hear
nothing but praise for this conse
crated young niau. We hope tr,
lay before your readerR his address
in the near future.
The programme consisted of
songs and recitations. The first
recitation was by Miss Carrie Big
ham, the bright and intelligent
daughter of Mr. Mat. Bigham. She
was followed by Misses Alma
Hammond, Mattie Mime, Sophia
Miras, and Masters Lovick and
The recitations were simple and
appropriate. The children had
bet'ii well trained and acquitted
themselves with honor. Especial
ly do wc wish to mention the reci
tation of little Sophie Mime. In
deed the lovely child recited ina
most ch arm ingra aimer. The sing
ing was tb.3 best we ever had at
Antioch for years. Mr. Geo. Minns
rendered ii valuable assistance,
md his performance onfthe clario
net added much to the occasion.
The Superintendent of the school
is iudebted lo Mrs. Mat. Bigham,
Mrs. Andrew Gardner, Mrs. Ab
ney Mime?, and a host of other no
ble women for the assistance ren
dered him. Also is he under obli
gations to Messrs. Ben Glanton,
Jr., Ed. Bigham, John Gardner,
Tom Gardner, Audrew Gardner
ind Wm. Wood. May the seed
sown at old Antioch bring forth au
ibundant harvest for the Master.

HIE SWEET GIRL GRADU
Some Bright Hits From Xzan
June has reached us with its
bent and dust and man hunts the
noonday shade, or becks the ice
cream grotto, or the fountain from
which streams the ice cold soda.
The summer girl sends out invita
tions to her graduation, which
means that her roy ul highness will
?woopdown upon us wry soon-a
full Hedged graduate with all the
new and advanced ideas, enriched
with a diploma aud half a dozen
medals, and a trunk full cf frip
pery. She comes equipped with
all the pomp and circumstance of
glorious war as she parades down
the street (and she does parade)
the admiration of all lookers on.
She will walk with an entirely new
3witch, but never, never, do you
call her or them by the old no,me,
for she will be known as Patrika,
nr Philippana, or Imogene, and
you will be treated with a haughty
stare if you address her as Kate,
or Jennie, or Madge of days gout
by. Indeed she will pass you with
supercilious scorn and knock you
in a dead heap as she switches by.
Now, this is the average college
graduate. We know lovely, intel
lectual, distinguished girls, who
can boast of some of the finest in
stitutions of learning as their al
ina maters, who will como home
handicapped by no such foolish
ideas. We ring down the curtaiu

we are not quite won over. Every

selves to the new regime. Women

'She rules the camp, the court, the
Man below ami saint above."
From the remotest antiquity it
goes without saying there was
never an intrigue but shat 6ome
poor woman was caught in its in
tricate meshes. Time would fail
us lo bring before the footligbt-s
such renowned, women, and their
deeds of daring, as Egyptian Cleo
patra, Catherine de Medici, Cath
erine of Russia, Joan of Arc,
Charlotte Corday, May, Queen of
Scots, beautiful and ill-fated. We
would far rather eulogize such
characters as the wives of Dr. Jud
son, the Misses Kockfeller. Coun
tess Burdette-Coutts. The Princess
of Wales, and legions of others
whose influence is all for good.
Apropos of good deeds and noble
lives, we do not know of any life
which was made up of more noble
aims, and which was more worthy
of emulation, than that of the Rev.
Alec Betti?, the colored preacher,
whose death was mourned by thou
sands of his own race.

young girls as guests for the sum
