impressed us as being especially line.
The programme furnished nothing
more plea=iiig. But it detracted noth
ing from the interest of the essay
which followed. on "Fiction"-written
by Ii-s Nina G. Wheeler and read by
Prof. Cork. The writer took a very
just and liberal view of the subject';
showing that while the lower order of
fiction, devoted to tlippancy and trash.
is intjurious, tiction of the more dignified
kind tends to refine and ennoble. Im
mediately after this came a practical,
well written essay on ''Thie Use and
Abuse of Worldly Adlvant:es"-writ
ten by _Mi-s 3ary T. Domiiniek, and
re-ad by V. H1. Wallace, Esq.
At this point the audience gave un
mistakable signs that they had been
looking forward with unusual interest
to the debate, on the question, "Which
is the better place for a university, the
Couitry; or the CityY' The aftirmative

and the negative, by Rufus T. Boozer.
The young deb:itcers crossed swords in a
way that would have puit older speakers
wh'iom we have heard, to shame. Th'ley
had given tho. subject cairefulstudy:
and the meri:s of both sides were so
well p)resenited!, that we should not be
willing to decide the qfuestioni on the
merits of the di-ceession. The young
gentlemen woni the first aplatuse of the
evening-flow -rs were given ini profui
sion to all the e.ssayists and speakers.
The debate a as followed by an ora

The speech wais a good omt'. The

auidience by hi earnest, impla-'sionied
delivery, He is a young muan of much
p)romise. He is upiighit and studious
and the future holds something worthy
ini store for him.
The valedicto:-y essay, on "Unerown
ed Heroes," written by 3Iiss Lilian L.
Luther, was read by Gao. B. Cromner.
Th'le fair writer, drawing a just distine
tion between crowns of gold and
crowns of merit, showed that the real
heroes of life are the busy toilers, the
hewers of wood and drawers of water,
who live unerownied and die unsung.
Her parting words to her teachers and

Prof. Peri then ainounced the

was sung with pleasing eft'eet by 3Miss
Carrie Sease, and "Under the Daisies"
and( several other pieces were sweetly
sung by MIiss Steek.
The programme was arranged with
good judgment, both as to length and
variety. it was neither tiresome nor
monotonmous. Everything piassedi oil'
smoothly-there was not a single jar
or jostle. And the sutccess of the put
pils furnishes the very highest evidenice
of the efliciency and faithfulness with
which the faculty have labored.
There is no reason why this school
should not rank amnong the very best
ini the State: andi thze trustees have it
in their power to make it even more
successful. We helieve that Prosperity
is alive to her interests and realizes the
good already done by the school. The
school-house is lairge and commodious,
and it is wvell erquipped. And there is
no more in<dependent aiid liberal peo
ple in the State than the commutnity
lying in below Prosperity. The peoc
ple have children almost too numner

the point, they have the means with
which to e ducate them. Prosperity with

Mr. R. 11. Greneker made a very nar

at the depot last Saturday. Ile had
iust turued from the Laurens train,
where he had been talking to friends,
when he was struck front behind by
the down passenger train which had
come in unobserved by him. He was
'1hrowcn head long by the cow-eatcher
and lie received some painful euts and
bruises about the right eye, and else
where. It makes us shudder to think
of the imminlent peril from whiclh he
so narrowly escaped. We are glad
that he received no serious injturies,
and is doing well.
All Work and No Play.
The clerk who is engaged only ten
hours a day does better work and does
it more cheerfully than the one who is
on his feet from daylight till dark. If
our merchants were to close at C o'clock,
all the custom that now comes after
that hour would conic before, or wait
till the next morning, and no man
would lo-e so much as a nickel. We
should like to see the young men turn
ed loose at C P. 31. 'T'his would keep
them in line spirits atd give them some
recreation ; and the kindness would
not cost the merchants a plnny.
Gentlemen, you can afford to be kind,
when it costs nothing.
