There were five candidates for the
honor of representing Hargrove in
this division of the contest. They
were Misses EmelolJ Smith, Mary
Hrown ezelle Johnson, Ho Clark and
Huth Belcher. Kadi of these young
ladies had prepared herself for the
contest and the matter of a selec
tion was left to the decision of three
judges, who met at the assembly
room of the county court house Fri
day afternoon and passed upon the
merits of the delivery and enuncia
tion of the young ladies. The Judges
were Hev. f. S. Johnson, pastor of
the Christian church, and Messrs.
Berry .Maxwell, cashier of the Ard
more National Bank, and George 11.
Wyatt of the Ardmoreite editorial
staff, found that the young ladies
were all bo well and ably prepared
nnd that each of them rendered her
chosen selection in such a masterful
and able manner that It wag a hard
matter to make a select iou. Between
three of the young ladles there were
but a few points difference In the
trading of tho judges. After a cnTe-
. lul deliberation Miss Kmeloid Smith
was selected, although the judges
stated at the time that If tho acous
tics of the hall wherein the selections
were given had have been good, their
decision might have been otherwise.
Be that as it may, each of the young
ladies showed in the manner of their
dl'livery, of their articulations as
well as In their careful carriage, that
they had been carefully trained and
that they were each of them elocu
tionists of no small ability.

Chattanooga. Tenn., March 30.
Chattanooga has decided to raise

ment of the reunion of Confederate
Veterans to be held here May 27-29.
Committees are at work securing cash
and subscriptions from the business
men and concerns of the city and
community. The fund will be secur
ed without delay.
Since the formal organization near-
ly two months ago, the reunion work
has been pushed with energy by thir
ty committees. The camp for the
veterans has been selected and
named. It will be in Jackson park,
a splendid location near the ''busi
ness section of the city. The camp
can he reached by three street car
lines, all of which will operate spec
ial schedules to accommodate the
veterans. It Is planned to have a

discussed at this meeting, and a
very decided sentiment was shown
for three separate parades, in place
of one large parade. If this plan is
finally adopted, there will be a par

a parade of sons of Confederate veter
ans and one for the veterans of the
civil war. The question was not fin

All who may be interested in the
coming reunion of the Confederate
Veterans are assured that Chattanoo
ga will discharge every obligation
that was shouldered when the veter
ans were asked to come here Ifor
their reunion, last year at Macon.
An attendance of from 100,000 to
150,000 is expecfed, and Chattanooga
will entertain it.
Every possible effort is being made
to arrange for the comfort and
amusement of the veterans and other
visitors while here especially the
veterans, for all realize that the vet
erans are of first importance in what
ever the citizens of Chattanooga do.
For the care of any veterans who
may be stricken with any form of
illness while in camp, on downtown
streets, or at any of the points of
interest, a chain of temporary hos
pitals is being arranged for. There
will be thirteen o'f these. Scores of
physicians and nurses will be on
hand, their time being divided so that
every branch hospital will have suf
ficient force at all times. A number
of comfort stations will be scattered
over the city.
Aside from the events which aro
connected with the reunion itself,
such as are held in every city where
the minion goes, a special commit
tee is working up a series of amuse
ments. Among these will be a very
fine spectacular display, the familiar
story of "The Tied Piper of Hamelin,"
acted by from 1,300 to 2,300 persons,
mostly children, at "Warner park, the
city's 43-acre playground. There will
be flights in the air once or twice
a day by some skilled aviator. These
and other events will make a program
for spare moments, and the princi
pal features will be held close to the
