DE.&: EniroR : The following is a mmne
of base ball played on Saturday, the 7h
between the Cross Roads and Junieville
clubs, on the grounds of the former, which
resulted in a decided victory for the Cross
Boads. The score stood 14 to 21, It is d ue
the Cross Roi~ds to state that they only had
eight bats, while their opponents had nine.
The Junevilie's claim the victory as due to'
the Cross Roads having one of I'anola's
players, while they had onie of Panola's and
three of Manning'splayers. The boys were
beaten fairly and they hate to own it. Well,
some excuse is better than nene. The bat-.
ting on both sides was excellent and with C
competent training some of our boys could ft
soon join the league. Capt. C. W. Brown .

The Yorkviile Engairer devotes a column
and a half to a sketch of the life of Dr.
Archibald I. Barron, who died on the 20th
inst., from which we gather the following
Dr. Barren was aescended from an illus
trious Scotch family, called in Scotland
Barrone and Barone. The line through
which Dr. Barron descen ded is traced back to
Jas. Barone, who as one of two lay comnmis-'(
sioners, with John Knok, attended 2.e first t
General Assembly of the church of Scotland
which met in Edinburg en the 20th day of
December 1560. During the misguidedii
reign of tle Stewart's memobers of the fai-t
ly emig. .ed to Ireland, and a.t C.a.rickf.ergus
nder their f stering protection, the Pros
byterian church of Ireland was orgainized in
1642. From Ireland, the ancesitors of Dr. I
.Barron emigrated to America. We tin& theI
name prominent agan in Cm
James Barron whose connecion with tnte
Chesapeake and duel .ithi Commo"or De
catur, are touching episodes in Amecricar.
Boern in York county whither his anc,
tors had moved, Dr. Barron completedi is
education in his native county, and :.fter
wards began the study of medicine. He,
completed his medical course at Transylva
nia University and commenced the re
tice of his profe'ssion in York county. Med i

The course of instruction embracing ten years, is designed to furnish a lils
eral education suited to the ordinary Vocations of life, or to fit students for
the Freshman, Sophomore, or Junior class of colleges.
PLAN OF INSTRUCTION.
The most approved icxt books are used. The blackboard is deemed an
essential in the class room. The rnoaiug of an author is invariably required
of each pupil. In all work done, -in whatever department, and whatever tlhe
extent of ground covered, our motto shall -.ways be Thoronghness. Toi
this end, we shall require that every kssun i-r,wd, if not in time for the
c'ass recitation, then clsewhere. No rual prog.;ress can be made so long a
the pupil is allowed to go cn from day to day reciting only half-perfect lessons,

E DESIRE ESPECIALLY TO URGE UPON PARIZNTS AND
Guardians the great importance of having their children at schoul
promptly the first day. The student who enters kte labors under serious
disadvantages, and seldom takes that 2and in Lis class that otherwise ha
would have taken.
The Princal feels much encouraged at th hearty support given the
school heretofore, and pronises renevd e!furts to make the school what it
should be-FIRST CLASS in every rwspee t.
