Annual Public Meeting of Lit
The annual publio meeting of the
Pierian Literary society which was
'held in the auditorium of the S. C.
C. I. Wednesday evening last, was
altogether the most creditable of
its kind that has been held at this
institution in many years. A most
interesting and instructive program
was creditably rendered to a large
and attentive audience.
The exercises were opened with
grayer by Rev. J. R. Walker. The
first number on the program was
a reading selection by E. S. Dun
bar. This was .a humorous selection
in which was described the effects
of music upon an appreciative hear
er. This number was decidedly the
'"hit" of the program.
The second number was a decla
mation, taken from Thos. Dixon's
"Leopard Spots," by L. M. Smith.
This young gentleman acquitted
himself most creditably, and held
the undivided attention of the au
dience by a delivery that would
have reflected credit upon a more

The query in the debate of the
evening was, resolved: "That any
further annexation would be detri
mental to the United States." The
affirmative was represented by L. '
S. Cox and G. H. Burriss while G.
V. Huiett and A. E. Burns defend
ed the negative side of the question.
The speeches of these young men
showed depth of thought and a
careful preparation. Their manner
of presentation was especially at
tractive and called forth favorable
comments from all sides.
As the judges were preparing,
their decision, the audience was en- j
tertained by the chorus olass which
rendered a medley of American
National airs. The twelve young
ladies oomposing this class rendered
this difficult selection in an artistic
manner that called forth favorable
comments upon themselves and re
flected much credit upon their di
The announcement of the decis
ion of the judgee was made by the

Mr. Sheppard took occasion to
speak in the highest terms of praise
of the exercises and stated that it
was indeed difficult for the judges
to come to a decision. However,
they had finally decided in favor of

September 9th, 1909.
We have built again dormitories,

The property is worth $220,000.00
