I. "W. Smith, Scc'y-
Fayeltville Observer: Senator Is
ham G. Harris, it is said,- is an earn
est friend of Josiah Patterson in the
canvass for the gubernatorial nom
ination. Such a course would be
prompted by gratitude. Two years
ago while on the Democratic electo
ral ticket, he canvassed the State for
Harris for the Senate. Bob Taylor,
the Democratic nominee for Gover
nor, was not mentioned.
The closing exercises of the City
School were held Thursday and Fri
day mornings of this week, and it is
puttting the matter far too mildly to
say that they were of a most interest
ing character. All who have attend
ed are praising both teachers and pu
pils with an enthusiasm which is cer
tainly very gratifying to both.
The exercises Thursday morning
consisted of songs, recitations by the
representatives of the various grades,
and awarding of prizes.
On Friday morning there was an
address from a representative of the
Board of Education, orations by
Messrs. J. B. Brown and G. M.
Smith, an essay by Miss Nora Thur
man, and a closing address by Judge

Prof. Meadors and his efficient
corps of teachers have just cause to
congratulate themselves on the good
work done, and thejhappy results of
Dibrell, Tenn., May 27, 1800. The
High school building at this place is
now an assured fact. The building
committee has been selected and duly
appointed, the lands laid off, and the
contract let for much of the material,
and nothing now remains but to go
to work and push the work through.
We feel assured that, with men of
such perseverance as those w have
on our building committee the work
will be done in due time and in such
manner as will commend itself to the
admiration and pride of any commu
nity. We have a healthy locality,
plenty of children to educate, and our
good people have always taken a
great pride in having good schools,
and what hinders Dibrell now from
having as fine schools as we have in
Tennessee? Nothing but an effort,
and the expending of a few dollars,
and building such rooms as will ac
commodate a school. Let every one,
rujhtnow, put his shoulder to the
wheel and the load, though it be a
ponderous one, will be easily

"1. Do you desire a revision of the
confession of faith?
"2. If so, in what respect and ot
what extent?" And
Whereas, It appears from the re
port of the special committee appoin

Presbyteries to said overture, that
131 Presbyteries have answered
"yes" to the first question, therefore

Whereas, Sixty-eight Presbyteries

Stanley, the African explorer, is to
be married soon.

The custom of lifting the hat had
its origin during the age of chivalry,
when it was customary for knights
never to appear in public except in
full armor. It became a custom,
however, for a knight, upon enter
ing an aasembly of friends, to remove
his helmet, signifying, "I am safe in
the presence of my friends."
