Much Interest in Athletics--lJaseball
Outlook Encouraging.--Boys Do

There is a great deal of interest
being taken in athletics here now.
The tennis courts are always full and
plenty of others waiting for a chance
to play. From the looks of things
now, we have a fine chance to win the
championship this year from the oth

ball outlook is even better for when a

THE CITY SCHOOLS.
Nearly One Thousand Enrolled.-Ev
erything MoTing Smoothly and
In Good Shape.
The city schools having been in
operation for two weeks, with the ex
ception of the high school which open
ed last Monday morning, conditions
have become sufficiently normal that
it is possible to speak with compara
tive accuracy relative to things of
more or less interest to the patrons
of the schools.
Up to the present time nine hundred
pupils have been enrolled including
both whites and negroes. Boundary
Street school has 230; Pope school
142; West End 123; Hoge school 327;
and the High school 78. An unusual
ly large number of out of town pupils
have reported for enrolment.
The graded school buildings have
been renovated from top to bottom;
all the unnecessary furniture (worn
out) has been stored away in the stor
age rooms of the respective buildings,
so that the halls and wardrobes pre
sent a fresh and clean appearance.
The high school pupils are housed in
the beautiful high school bhilding.
The interior arrangement of this
building as well as its outside ap
pearance has attracted wide attention
from able school men of the State.
All the schools are open for inspec
tion at any and all times; and visi
tors are not only invited to come to
the schools and inspect every phase
of the work that is being done, but we
shall feel disappointed if this much
interest is not manifested on the part
of the school patrons.
The superintendent will have only
one office hour during the day and
this will be from 12.30 to 1.30 in the
office of the high school.
THE PHILATHEA CLASS

Held Interesting Exercises.

Miss Bernice Martin is our teacher
and is a fine one. All the girls love
her dearly. We had only eighteen
members when we organized, average
attendance fourteen, but wa have
thirty-one on the roll now, and an
average attendance of twenty-five.
We have been doing some charity
work in our town, but were not satis
fied with that. We wanted to help the
poor heathens who didn't know any
thing about ~Jesus. So we decided
to have a missionary exercise and take
a collection for missions. Three girls
were appointed to arrange the pro
gram. They went to work, got every
thing ready and had an interesting
exercise. The church was decorated
in white and blue crepe paper, ferns
and cut -flowers. We had our motto.
"We do things," over the pulpit. At
7.30 the church was full, the door was
opened and our teacher walked in
with twenty-nine girls following. We
marched to the front and began to
sing that beautiful song, "Onward
Christian Soldiers." All the girls are
interested praying that it will be the
cause of saving some poor heathen
girls, who have never heard of Jesus
Christ their Savior.

parents at Helena. It was a quiet
The bride is the attractive daughter

residence in the city. The happy
bride and groom are receiving the
congratulations and well wishes of
their hosts of friends.

For Day of Prayer.
Believing that the prayer meeting
is an important and vital service in
our churches, coming as it does in
the middle of the week when our spir-'
itual life needs uplifting, we, the un
dersigned pastors do ea'rnestly re
quest the people of our respective
congregations to spend the day
(Wednesday of every week) as far as
possible in prayer and meditation,
and to eliminate as far as possible all
social functions and other things that
tend to distract from attendance upon
the regular mid-week prayer service.

One of the Strongest That Newberry
Has Had in a Number of
The largest and strongest lyceum
course Newberry has had for a num
ber of years will be given this season.
The course consists of seven attrac
tions-three concert companies, three
lecturers and one entertaining com
pany-all coming to us very highly
The first attraction is Dr. Byron W.
King, November 1, 1910. Dr. King is
president of the Kings school of ora
tory, Pittsburg, Pa. This is the larg
est school of its kind in America. Dr.
King is at the very top, and it is said
that he has no equal in his prcfession
on the platform. His text book,
"Practice of Speech," is used in every
nation of the world. Among his pu
pils were the late President McKin
ley and Hon. John J. Ingalls. We are
very fortunate in securing Dr. King.
We will have with us again the Ly
ric Glee club. This attraction was
on our course last year, and it made
such a great hit that many persons
requested its return.
The Winifred Townsend Concert
company will be with us this year.
Their program will consist of vocal
duet; violin solos; baritone dolos;
and soprano solos; violin cello and
piano trios; readings, sketches, etc.
These people pursued their musical
training abroad under some of the
best musicians, and they are highly
praised by their teachers.
Dr. Henry Clark, the English ora
tor and lecturer, is one of our num
bers. "The Clark Lectures" have won
a place in England and they come to
this country with an "absolute guar
antee." Dr. Clark has been in Amer
ica but six years, and during this
time he has lectured on 1200 lyceum
and chautanqua courses. He is known
as "Play Ball Clark" because of his
famous lecture, "Play Ball."
The Eureka Glee club in addition
to their songs, will present "The
Chimes," a splendid novelty. These
men have been singing and playing
together for the past 11 years. This
is a fine musical attraction.
Dr. W. T. S. Culp, a popular lec
turer of Cleveland, will probably lec
ture on "Uncrowned Kings."
"The Coxes" compose an intertain
ing company. Cartoons, caricatures,
chalk paintings, readings, sketches,
musical novelties, etc., will be given.
This is a .splendid course and we
are to be congratulated upon having
attractions of such a high standard.
Although a a have enlarged and
strengthened . our course over former
years the price of the season tickets
remain the same. That is $3.50 for
double ticket, admitting two; $2.00
for single ticket, admitting one. Single
admission 50 cents to $1. Tickets are
now on sale.
Miiss Ethel Hobbs President.
Miss Ethel Hobbs was South dur
ing the summer with her father, Col.
John F. Hobbs. His friends and her
friends will be pleased to know that
Miss Hobbs has been elected presi
de-it of her class. Although she was
not a candidate and was in anothe~r
part <f the college on* an im'portant
missicn for the superintendent, when
the election was held she was put in
rominxation and received five more
votes than the aggregate nst for the
five ot her candidates for this houor.
Miss Ethel, though only 13 years old
this month, attends the Normal col
lege of New York city, and finished
the last school year at the head of her
class. She is a bright girl, loves the
