THE MERCHANT OF VENICE.
The Merchant of Venice was pre
sented at Fisk Memorial Chapel, by
the Junior College Class last Friday,
The cast was as follows:
The Duke of Venice M. V. Boutte
Antonio James A. Myers
Bassanio William A. Macintyre
Salanio Halcombe S. Crosthwait
Salarino Benjamin F. Murphy
Gratiano St. Elmo Brady
Lorenzo .James G. Browne
Shylock Charles Campbell
Tubal William B. Merrill
Launcelot Gobbo Alfred G. King
Gobbo Jack S. Braboy
Lcouardo Howa'rd W. Warner
Balthazar W. Sylvester White
Portia Beatrice S. Flanders
Nerissa Lillian E. Cashln
Jessica Gertrude L. Glenn
The chapel was filled with an atten
tive and appreciative audience. From
the beginning to the end of the play
the characters were stimulated by the
attitude of their hearers. The per
sonnel of the class, and the training
given by Mis3 Green, the teacher of
elocution, made anything but success
impossible. .Although some of the
characters had few words to say, they
were well said.
As friends to Antonio and Bassanio,
Brady as Gratiano, Murphy as Salari
no, and Crosthwait as Solanio, sus
tained their characters well.
Boutte, as the Duke of Venice, was
the impersonation of courtly grace.
Brown, as Lorenzo, played the part
of the successful lover, admirably. As
old Gobbo, Brayboy could scarcely be
While Miss Cashin, as Nerissa,
charmed the audience with her dainty
coyness. She showed herself a strate
gist of no mean degree.
Miss Glenn in the role of Jessica
commanded the sympathy of all as she
described her position in Shylock's
family, and their admiration for the
way in which she got out of it.
The faithful Hebrew friend was well
represented by Merrill, while White as
Balthazar and Warner as Leonardo,
were trustworthy helpers of Portia
The character of Shylock is one
that is usually held up aa a model of
avarice and cruelty, yet as one listened
to" Campbell's outburst of pent up feel
ing in his fiist talk with Antonio, and
in his subsequent talk with Salanio
and Salarino, he was compelled to see
as the Jew saw, and feel as the Jew
felt. The audience showed its appre
ciation of hi. -j efforts in the stillness
which penaded the house during his
speeches, and the hearty applause
which followed them.
Mis3 Flanders, as Portia the lover
and Portia the judge, was thoroughly
enjoyable. In the court scene, and
where Bassanio made his choice of
the caskets, her rendition of the two
parts showed her fine interpretation of
the different characters.
As the devoted friend or lover, Mc
intyre as Bassanio posed equally as
well. Possessed of a deep, rich voice,
knowing well how to use it, he was in
tently followed in his love passages
and in his words of cheer and comfort
to his friend Antonio.
The experience of Antonio with the
Jew was well set forth by Myers. As
the generous friend, the pleading debt
or, or the unfortunate one resigned to
his fate, he was able to represent each
character in his own inimitable way.
The members of the class have
worked long and faithfully, and suc
cess crowned their efforts. The pro
ceeds of the entertainment will go to
the library which Fisk hopes to have
in the near future.

BOOKER WASHINGTON COMING.
Unless the unexpected happens to

Washington, who, it is understood, has
a number of engagements about this
season of the year. Dr. Washington's
last visit to this city, January one

PEARL HIGH SCHOOL NOTES.
The regular Normal meeting of the
city teachers took place in this build
ing Tuesday, the 19th Inst. The en
tire body of teachers was divided into
two classes. Prof. H. C. Weber, Su
perintendent of the city schools, made
m interesting talk to the teachers, in
which he advised them to prepare
themselves to teach the Manual Train
ing as laid down in the Hand-book on
Manual Training. He stated in his ad
dress that everything pointed to its in
troduction next year in the colored
schools. He then introduced Mr. Eu
gene Gilliland, who has charge of
Manual Training in the white schools
and Mr. D. M. Andrews, his assistant,
to the teachers. Mr. Gilliland was
then placed in charge of the teachers
of the higher grades and Mr. Andrews
in charge of the teachers of the lower
grades. Both cf these professors gave
a hasty and concise review of the
Manual Training work :as done by
them in the white schools.
It Is understood by your reporter
that the Pearl High School will be
made the Manual Training Center for
the colored children. it is current
among the teaching fraternity that all
the seventh and eighth grades in the
city, and possibly the sixth grades
also, will be transferred to this build
ing and located here. The Primary
grades already in the building will be
sent to one of the new school to be
erected, or to any of the old school?,
which may be most convenient. Just
exactly how this will work, or what
is to be done with the old teachers on
the first floor of Pearl, your reporter
has not heard. It is believed, how
ever, that the fertility, power and re
sourcefulness of the Superintendent's
mind will suggest a plan which will be
This school was favored with a vis
it from Mrs. F. G. Smith, the wife of
the principal, last Thursday. It has
been a long time since Mrs. Smith has
peeped in on the school, and she is
invited to call again.
Miss Charlie Rosenberg and Miss
Grace Frank, students of Fisk Univer
sity, also honored us with a visit 011
Washington's birthday. Thes- ladies
visited every class-room and expressed
themselves as surprised and benefitted
by what they saw.
