The Lexington Leader says:
The contest Friday evening was interesting
and the subject matter was
well handled by each of the debaters.
In the midst of college yells aud un
bounded enthusiasm, Moore, of the
K. S. C. team, stood out as the most
effective speaker- He spoke second
for State and made the rebuttal speech
His first was a seeming attempt
at oratory and was not as forcible
as it it might have been if shorn
of its oratorical flourishes. Bui
when Moore came on for rebuttal he
took the situatou in hand and clinched
K. S. C's. victory. He scored
point after point that left the affirmative
helpless to answer. He brought
storms of applause from his supporters
and admiration from the audience.
In fact by the force of his strong rebuttal
speech Moore is the boy "who
bit the onion. He his only 17 jears
Standing conspicuously aloof from
his colleagues in point- ot argumentation
and personal power in debate
was Virgil Yandell Moore, a lad of
17 years of age. Long beforo the
debate was closed it was manifest
that the contest had resolved itself
into battle between II. 31. Stansifer
the sturdy Crimson defender and
young Moore. In his rebuttal arguments
Stansifer regained several lout
points for the affirmative.
Mr. Stansifer opened the argument
by stating that for moral, commercial
and pohtcal reasons the United States
phould establish her permanent rule

Mr. Moore, in arguing for the
negative stated that the meaning of
the word "justifiable" was a

Sudden Death of Irene Stone.
The entire city was thrown into
gloom last Tuesday morning, when
the news was circulated that Irene
Stone, the beautiful little eleven year
old daughter, of Mr. and Mrs. Henry
V. Stone, had died suddenly and
most unexpectedly the night before
a little after eleven o'clock. The
death was so sudden, as to daze her
parents and all her friends, She
had been indisposed with a sore
throat and tousihtis for several days,
but was out of school only three days
last week and every one was quite
unprepared for the rude shock which
the news of her death gave them.
She was eleven years old the first
day of this mouth, aud on that occa.
tion celebrated her birth day by inviting
her little friends to her party,
which was a joyous occation to them
The funeral was held at the residence
at two o'clook, Wednesday
afternoon, and the burial took place
in the new cemetery, Rev. Benjamin
Andres officiating assisted by Rev.
J. H. Butler.
The floral offerings were profuse
aud beautiful. One design being
from the third grade in the Marion
Giadcd School to which Irene belonged,
another was from the Presbyterian
Sunday School, still another was
from the "Willing Workers," and
the last resting place of tho dear
little form was covered completely
with flowers. Tho bereaved parents

To Road Overseers.
The time has come when our public
roads can be worked. The excessive
rains of the winter have loft many
of our roads in bad condition, and I
must insist that overseers look after
their roads at once. Now is the
time to work roads to iret result-.
The fiscal court has fixed the price of
plow and team at $!..")() per d.iy, a
day on road means eight hours of
work, not play. Some overseers
have in tho past too many
teams and have not had teams worked
.is they should have done. You are
expected this year to ue teams only
when acually needed, and to see that
the county recieves eight hours of
uood work every day that team i-reported.
Remember that you as overseer
have make a sworn statement as to
work done on your road and you can
not be too careful in seeing that the
county is not imposed upon. I
want to urge you to push the woik this
year aud do it now.
The fiscal court has planed to use
road grader on parts of roads in
different sections of county as they
can be advantageously used, but
wherever graders are used the hand
will be required to work at least six
days, working r.uch places as giader
will not woik.
Mr. W. A. Woodall will have the
management of the graders, and I
trust the overseers on roads when
graders are used will heartily coop-crate
with him in the work. It is
impossible for all of the loads to be
graded iu one year, but the work
will distributed so as to give all sections,
where graders can be used, a
share of the work.
W. A. Black itmix,
Pogue Mine to the Front.
After laying idle for many months
and it being the opinion of many
that it would never be worked again,
this mine is now just in its infancy.
The Marion Mineral Co. have been
lucky in securing the sen ices of our
old friend, R. B. Clement, to manage
this mine. Through his untiring
efforts and plans devised by
himself he lias succeeded in driving
a drift through broken ground and
slush to the vein where thousands of
tons of ore arc in sight and is now
being taken out as fast as it can be
handled by two shifts of men working
day and night.
Mr. Clement has for a long time
been counted one of the best mining
engineers in this district, and his
excellent judgment coupled with his
knowledge of formation and location
he is second to none. Hurrah for

MARION CHORAL SOCIETY
Entertainment a Grand Success and Was
Attended by a Large and Appreciative
The Marion Choral Society made
its first appearance before the public
Tucsd.u night and trrectcd with
a larg and enthusiastic audience.
They wic very ably by the
Amphi'iii Quartette, of Henderson,
Miss Tomniie Lyle Waller, of Mor-.
ganfivM, and Mr. Chap Black well,
Prof. Von Tobel, a musician, of
Henderson, has been training our
vocsl talent for some several weeks
and assisted by the singers noted
above gave n- a very beautiful and
artistic entertainment. Prof. Von
Tobel praise and commendation
for his painstaking and careful
work with our vocal talent. It
was certainly reflected in every
to a marked degree.
Tin: takes the liberty
to aay however that he played
his piano selections over heads
in place of at all hearts. This however
might have been more noticeable
to the writer than others and at
any rate he is not responsible for
imperfection in hi- audience.
Every one liked Von Tobel. He is
one musicians out of many without
frills. He stays close to his work
through an entire program aud is
devoid of the usual clap-trap devices
made only for effect.
The Amphion Quartette were very
warmly welcomed in their first number.
Their voices have been heard
in the chorus and the ladies iu solos
and .he audience were prepared for
just what they heard a splendid
number well rendered. The singing
of Misses Watson, Spochr and
Waller was well done aud fully appreciated
by the audience.
One of the best things in the whole
program was Barnbys "Sweet and
Low" rendered by the chorus. Tho
expression in this was to our mind
almost perfection. This is one of
the most beautiful pieces of music
ever written. It can only be appreciated
when sung corroctly seasoned
with expression by a musician
The distinctive feature in this song
is the blowing of the wind in the
next to the last bar aud the conductor
succcecdcd in making this effect
very realistic. This number alone
was worth the price of admission.
The audience was very generous
with applause and the entertainment
taken 4s a whole was a goodly performance.
