t Committeeh Held Interesting Meet
ing on Tuesday Evening.
The committees for arranging for
e the coming of the State Baraca-Phi
lathea Convention in April held a
o meeting in -the chamber of com
merce last Tuesday night with a
- large attendance. The meeting was
ealled to order with Chairman M. L.
t I Spearman and Secretary S. S. Cun
a I ningham in their respective chairs.
The meeting was opened by prayer
by Rev. M. L Banks. Two of the
a speakers, Revs. J. E. James and G.
r A. Wright, were present and it was
very much regretted that Rev. T. T.
1J Todd had to be out of the city but
it is hoped that he will speak at the
a next meetig.
)Mr. James was the first speaker
introduced; his subject being "How
e is the best way to make our town
a enthusiastic about -the coming con
vention'"? He said there were three
, main themes in this questnon: to
- talk it, to advertise it and to be en
s thusiastic about it, and another was
a to keep harmony among our classes,
a committees and leaders and that
e everybody that has eriticisms to
make should wait until after the
a convention to make them.
& Mr. Wright was the -next speaker
b and his subject was "In wibat way
e does the success of the Baraca
Philathea Union depend upon this
e Convention'"? He said that much
. depended on a good start, for the
k first ,impression is certainly lasting,
as in the life of a student.- If the
r student gets a good report and en
couragement, that may decide him
for life, and on the other hand if he
should get a bad start and become
discouraged and ay that he had
e education euough to farm or do
anyithing he was thinking of in his
life's pursuits. As this convention.is
an experiment what impressions will
the different delegates get who come
here? We must make our standard
r high and the foundation must be
I laid in good soil where the tree is
planted that we may gather fru:
from it in the years to come. This
convention is to prove if the work
is worth while and that at every
other convention in the years to
come New erry will'akways be asso
ciated with .their saeees,
Chairman eSpearan thena anked
the speakers and saiid that dbe felt
quite ertain that every individual
Spresent would prfit by their talks.
1made by the following men: Mr.
Harris, Prof. Dean, Mr. Bowles- and
-Dr. Pelham, each giving hris idea of
the Baraea-Philathea movement.
Chairman Spearman then mapped
-ont the business of the conivention
Sto the eiection of the officers, etc.
After the committees mad'e their
;rdports the meeting adjourned af
ter the benedietion by Mir. James,
to meet again on Tuesday nigh't,

1and it is hoped that every elaas
will be represented, for this will be
the last meeting before the eon

Early last Mond'ay night Mr. P.

used to it by -long practice, but that
Sdid not make him careless. 'On Mon

in one hand, ibut 'he doesn't think
this caused the accident; h.is foot
