Recital in Expression by Miss
Miss Elizabeth Hollingsworth of
South Carolina gave her recital for
graduation in Expression at Judson
College, Marion, Ala., Monday eve
ning, March 22. Her program was
"The Prince Chap" by Edward Peo
pie, the author cf "The Littlest
Rebel", a very elev er and interest
ing story of London artist life.
The hero William Peyton is a young
American sculptor from the South
and the background of the play has
various English characters of great
inter?s4,of which the butler Reunion
is typical. A beautiful and virtuous
model, Mrs. Arrington. in dying,
leaves her little daughter to the
care of Peyton; she appears at the
three ages of five, eight, and eigh
teen years, in most striking and
clever situations. Puckers, who
brings coal for tbe? artists and af
terwards marries "an artist chap, a
'arry-nort" in a circus, is one of the
most laughable characters on the
stage; thu earl. Princess Alice, and
Mr. Helraer add depth to the plot.
All these various personages were
well presented and acted by Miss
Hollingsworth; and her audience
listened with marked attention and
deep interest. Many offerings of
beautiful pansies, roses, and other
flowers showed the appreciation of
her friends, after admiring the ease,
grace, and fine voice aud manner
with which her piece was rendered.
The Judson and her teacher, M?BS
Mary Hollingsworth, have reason to
be proud of her talent and train
The stage was decorated with
fems, smilax and lovely pink car
nations, and the graceful ushers
were Misses Adelaide Bell of Pratt
ville and Ena Wes .inger of Dallas
County, and Messrs. Edward Mc
Millan of Orrville and Gordou
Wilder of Marion Institute.
Miss Mildred McMillan of Orr
ville assisted in the program with
three violin numbers of great beau
ty, with Miss Jeannette Chapman
ol Jackson at the piano, both these

Cadet W. D. Ouzts Gives Inter
esting Description of En
campment of Cadets
Hydear Mr. Mims:- If yon will
allow me some space in your good
old paper, I will give you a little
description of our encampment at
Anderson.; We left barracks Mon
day March 22 at 1 p. m. We in
tended to leave at 7 ;30 in the morn
ing, bnt owing to tbe unsettled con
dition of the weather Col. Cummins
decided to wait until it looked more
favorable. At 1:15 the bugle sound
?d/for forward march, and the three
battalions marched off in consecu
tive order The corps was 750 strong,
and you can imagine what a pretty
sight it was to see us m arch in tr
along with our blanket rolls on our
shoulders, and accoutrements on.
Col. required us to march to
Sandy springs, and when we got
thljre we could take tho train or
Bwch the rest of the way as we
[iked. All marched to Sandy
?Pekings in about three hours, and
baa a ten minutes rest at the end of
every hour. Some few marched the
rest of the way, but most ol' us were
glad of the opportunity tn lido. I
think those that marched all the
way were sick of their bargain be
t?re they reached earn]) that night,
although they made very uo<>d time,
fvwbe tamp was situated in north
Anderson about a mile from the
courthouse, and called Camp Riggs
in honor of the president. All
marched from the depot to the
camp. The band furnished music
while marching through town, this

5?80, stacked our arms, fixed the
Straw for our beds, and then got
ready for retreat. We had retreat at

^no:4? ?> go up'town it'we wish
ed. It was very cold Monday night
and was especially tough on the sen
tinels though I think the whole
corps suffered from cold that night.
The bugle sounded the naxt morn
ing at 0:30 for revilee. We had to
go out with our arms and have ai
len minutes drill.
After breakfast Tuesday morn
ing we had to drill for au hour and
a half. We were quite stove up
from the march on the preceding
After we had finished drilling we
were released for the rest of the
day. Most of the boys remained in
?amp, and rested until after dinner
then went up town. The Palmetto
moving picture show had a special
vaudeville on for the week which
the cadets enjoyed immensely. There
were other good movies in town al
so. Tuesday ended with all of us
having a very good time owing to
i he circumstances.
On Wednesday morning we had
reville and breakfast at the usual
time. After breakfast Col. marched 1
the corps out in north Anderson
about two and one half miles from
the courthouse, where we had ma
neuvering drills for about two
hours, then marched back to camp,
and released until four in the after
noon. At four we had to give the
town a dress parade. The streets
were crowded, and the people cheer
ed us as we passed by, especially the '
girls. After the parade we were re
leased until 6:30. At that time we
were marched back up town to the
Andersou theatre where we were
given a cordial reception by the
After seeing five reels of good
movies, each battalion went up stairs
where they were served with deli
cious sandwiches and lemonade by
some of Anderson's prettiest girls.
After the reception every cadet
watched his chance to get with one ?
}f the pretty girls. And every ca
iet who was so unlucky as to be
without a giri slipped quietly around
to the vaudeville. After the recep
tion a dance was given especially
for the benefit of the cadets, which
many attended and enjoyed immense
ly. Wednesday ended with every
oue having had ons ol the grandest
times in his life.
Thursday morning we had to
drill tor an hour. Col. then releas
ed us until three in the afternoon.
In the morning we all enjoyed a
little fox race, given us by a gen

Missionary Rally Arranged For
Mt Zion Church.
Last Sunday the 4th of Macrh,
was, as Baptists know, the day set
apart by the Southern Baptist
convention as missionary day. On
that day the members of Mt. Zion
church decided to try to raise twen
ty-five dollars for missions within
the next five weeks. After a stirling
speech by the superintendent, the
Sunday school raised thirteen dol
lars of this amount. It was then de
cided that the effort of the church
would be postponed till the 4th
Sunday in April when Rev. P. B.
Lanham, the pastor will bring with
him some visiting speaker or
speakers. There will be an all-day
service with dinner on the grounds,
and the church will bold a regular
missionary rall}'. It is hoped that
there will be a large attendance
from the surrounding country, and
that the day, in addition lo it? re
ligious services, may be a social re
union, especially for the scattered
membership of the churoh. Mr.
Editor, will not you and Mrs. Minis
accept an invitation to be present
with us on that day?
Mr. W. J. Gaines, the su perin- j
tendent of our Sunday school, has;

Sunday in April on the subject of j
Miss Mamie Cheatham with a
party of young friends from Tren

On last Friday night Miss Mary
Gaines gave a box party at her
school. Judging by the ready sale
of the boxes and the price paid for
some of them, one would think that
the war depression had not reached
this corner. A gratifying sum was
raised which will be used for
