say of the newly appointed officer:
"Mr. Motto, the newly appointed

city having come here from Wilming
ton, N. O.. nearly a year ago. He is a
stenographer of efficiency, ability and
experience, having in the past served
as court stenographer In North Caro
lina. He is a young gentleman of ex
cellent habits and very popular in this
city, which will cont'nuo to bo his
home. His friends congratulate him
on bis succees in securing tbo posi
Tbo annual Inter-Society Oratorical
and debaters contest between the Clari
osopbic and Ephradiun Societies of the
South Carolina College was held last
Friday night. Mr. J. E. Stoddard was
tho Clarlosophlc orator. His subject
was the ''Power of Wisdom". He
made a fine impression but the decision
went to the Eupbradian orator, in the
debate Laurens was represented by
Mr. Robert Pasley and his side was
victorious. The question that was dis
cussed was whether or not tho consti
tution followed tho flag. The Colum
bia papers state that this was one of
the nest contests of years.
