Those who braved the elements
on last Friday evening to attend the
Recital at St. Katharine's School,
"iven by the pupils of elocution anci
expression, assisted by the orches
tra, felt amply repaid. Thu Re
cital was the first of .he kind given
by' Mrs. Cole's pupils. Both the
young ladies an 1 their talented
teacher deserve unqualified credit
for the ease and-grace 'with which
the numbers were executed. The
evening's program evinced not only
close application on the part of the
pupils, but the painstaking work of
the teacher, the combined apprecia
tion of which was shown by the at
tentive audience. The Pantomime
by the emire class was especially
good, "The Holy Cuy" and "Com
in' Thro' the Rye" being eung by
two of the young ladies, whi'e the
dramatic and pathetic poses made
'each of these popular so::gs veiyj
real to the audience.
The community was shocked
Thursday morning of lat week to
learn of the death of Hardin F.
Wilson. Only the day before he
was at his post, attending to his
duties as depot agent. He had been
suffering from a severe cold for
several days and the day previous
to his death, he w3s compelled to
take his oed. The sudden end was
a great shock to his devoted wife
and children, to his aged father and
mother, t-iners and brother and to
us all for he was one of our most
popular citizens and was held in the
highest esteem by everybody who
knew lim. He was honorable, no
ble, true to his friends and faithful
to eveiy mm imposed.
Deceased was 42 years of age
He was a son of J. A. Wilson, Sr.,
