the children and their parents.
Prof John P. King made a splen
did talk to his pupils, their parents
and to the teachers. His talk was
wholesome and if adhered to will
make a good school anywhere. Before
closing his talk he said he believed
as a charity game of ball wa3 to be
played in tho evening for the benefit
of a deserving young man who
had been afflicted with typhoid fever
for more than 80 days, that it
would be proper to have no school
in tho evening in order that all
might have a chance to aid in swell,
ing tho fund. Hcv. Dr. Johnson
said that was right and that he
thought the children should have
also a half holiday on Friday for the
big show, which met with hearty
npplausc from every one of the five
hundred children present.
Tho deep interest shown in the
school was the great number of the
patrons present and all in a cheerful
mood. Prof. King has the school
well organized and in good w'orking
order, with ofilcicD' teacher and
every teacher at his or her place.
The Street Parade.
The great street parade of the
great Robinson shows will take
place at 10 o'clock today and will
pass by the school for the solo benefit
of the children.

Henry Stone pays cash for his

It is tho best way. Try him and
you will be convinced.
N. P. Taylor For Mayor of Henderson
Hon. N. Powell Taylor has been
nominated by the citizens of Henderson
for Mayor and if elected, will
make the flagrant law breaker hard
to oatoh. He has served for a
number of years as oounty attorney
and it is safe to say the county never
had a better one.
Tern Clifton Very Low.
The condition of Mr. Tom Clifton,
who was stricken with paralysis last
Saturday, is yet very critical in

is yet unable to move and is still
