At the municipial election last Mon
day for warden, Mr. B. A. Johnson,
the only one spoken of for the posi

was-no contest. The election was
managed by Messrs. P. B. Thames,
E. C. Horton and B. S. Diukins.

The academy exhibition in the
Court House on the morning of the
9th was a complete success. Schol
ars and teachers both deserve full
praise. The first reflected the high
est credit on the teachers, by the ad
mirable performance of each one of
the part assigned. We forbear from
comparisons, for all did too well not
to be mentioned, if one is brought
forward. Each one was heartily con
gratulated by the attentive audience I
and made happy by the approving
smiles of teachers. The following is
a list of the honors and prizes with
the names of the winners:

rhomp~son Literary Society.
The iegular annual exhibition of the
rhompson Literary Society of the
danning Academy was held in the
Leademy building last Thursday ev- a
~ning. Notwithstanding the inclem- a
~ncy of the weather, the entire seating b
~apacity of the building was exhaust-t
~d by friends and relatives of the stu
lents. The programme was an inter-d
~sting one, consisting of recitation, h
ssay, debate and oration. The reci
ation by Miss Susie Lesesne was well
lelivered, and received the plaudits
f the audience. Miss Daisy Bagnal a
ead an interesting and carefully pre
ared essay on "Home." Miss Bag- I
al deserves much credit for the beau
iful style in which she handled her
ubject. The subject of the debate
ras: "Which is more profitable to
lant in Southl Carolina; corn or cot
on." Mr. Axexander Davis repre
ented the affirmnative side of then
uestion, and Mr. Chovine Sprott the
egative. Both sides of the question .
as well argued, the subject being ex 4,
austively discussed. Mr. Chovine
prott made an exceptionally fine ar-a
aiment, eliciting great applause from
be audience. In accordance with
he request of the debators, Gen. Mo
=e acted as judge. Gen Moise stated
hat in rendering his decision, he a
ould decide the question in favor ofn
he one who presented the best argu
1ent, and not upon the merits of the
ubject. His decision was in favor of
he negative. After the debate Mr.
tlev Wilson delivered an oration
hich showed much care and study,
nd reflected credit upon himself and
is teachers. This closed the exer
ises of the society-then followed t
he address of Gen. E. W. Moise.

Mn. EDnIroR: Saturday, the 5th of S
