jug, the attaching of hose to engine
and the throwing of water, was made
?in two .minutes und forty-live seconds.

On Sunday last tho Commencement
exercises of Clafliu University opened
by a sermon from Bishop Warren be
fore a large audienoo.in the College
chapel. Several of our citizens at
tended to bear the Bishop on this his
tirst visit to our State. The sermon
teas fully up to the reputation of the
preacher, eloquent, profound and
spiiitual throughout. The Northern
Methodists were certainly fortunate
in securing Bishop Warren for the
Episcopacy. Monday tho examina
tion of the classes .be^an find ended
on Tuesday. Mouday evening Hon.
Samuel Dibble, of our town, delivered
the aunual address on the subject of
popular .education. Notwithstanding
the unfavorable evening the chapel
was crowded ;t,o \ts utmost capacity,
and wo learn the address was one of
best ever delivered on that puhjeet-r
taking our Ncrthern visitors captive
by foice. The speaker was applauded
frequently and was most happy in the
effect upon his audience. It is
thought this able address will have a
most beneficial influence in behalf of
popular education in this county and
wherever it may be read. Mr. Dibble
has given the subject considerable
thought and the views expressed on
this occasion are doubtless the fruit
of potienL study and calculated to
benefit the cause of education wherev
er they may reach. Tuesday morn
ing was appointed for,thecontest in
declamation for the regular prizes of
the in tituiion. Tho young men gen

Wednesday afternoon at S o'clock
the commencement exercises proper
were had in the chapel in the pres
ence of a packed audience. Every
available seat and standing room
about the doors, windows and pas
sageway was filled with anxious spec
tators from the adjoining communi
ties, which eircumst ijcc alone proves
what a deep interest the colored people
feel in the education of their youths.
After prayer, President Cookc
called the young men out in their
appointed order, each of whom mani
fested a trainning of mind and body
that docs credit to the institution.
The speeches were-original and gen
erally well written showing earnest
study and very commcnd.able prafi
cenqy in the various branches involv
ed. Dignity pf position and grace in
delivery were very marked through
out the exercises. The Latin Saluta
tory by A. W. Whaley and 14?? d-nn\r
.Oration by J. S. Cooper were very
entertaiu iig 10 mu uuuience anil cred
itable to tho young speakers, We
make special mention of the speeches
of J. H. Jones, W. L. Bulkley, M.
Blakeley, E. J. Crawford and H. D.
Witiams as giving evidence of su
perior attainment and careful sJLudy,
not, however, without recognizing the
merit, of the Other young men, all of
whom did well and reflected credit
alike upon teacher and student. The
address of Miss Hattie Dickson was
chase and well prepared. The vali
dictpry by Miss A. L. Jackson de
serves more than a passing notice.
Such sentiment can only come from
a well trained mind and a sensitive
lueart. Miss Jackson is certainly
gifted beyond girls of her race nnd
age. Deplomas were awarded to H.
D. Williams, Misses Hattie Dickson
and A. L. Jackson graduates of this
year and to Miss S. E. Middlcton, a
graduate of last year.
Prizes were awarded to Scipio

Round Dances.?Here is what the
Atlanta (Ga.) Oonsiitution says on
the subject of round dances, which
we commend to the attention of our
young lady readers : "A young man
watched the waltzes at a certain dan
cing school for some time last night,
and then asked somebody to tell him
why it was that the young ladies who
submitted to hugging in public would
not permit it in private, whereupon a
bright fellow remarked that that had
not been bis experience." Food for

posed of buchu leuves, dandelion

All of which arc highly valued diur
ctics, kidney stimulants and depur
ants. The failure of the actons of
the kidneys is a source of many dis
tressing discuses. This medicine
produces a hearty action of the
kidneys, removes from tho blood the
urea and urio acid, which if allowed
to remain and accumulate would in
duce rheumatism, gooty affections,
pains in back and loins. This valua

HARD TIMES BE CONS I
HAVING been watching for some
time past the, financial pulse of tbe
country and U;o. ever ..varying events of
the trading worjd V'i.th .1. view to the in
crease or decrease oar'weje.kly purchases,
we are prepared to announce"to o,ur num
erous patrons that qur .Investigation of
these subjects has been ?perfectly satisfac
tory and that wo have as a consequence
forwarded larger orders than over be
fore to our New York agency.
The year 1880 therefore begins with
flattering prospects for farmers; mechan
ics and all other lilborers alike. The
financial pulse of tbo country is steadily
Improving and haying telunied almost
to a hard money basis, vv; shall gradu
ally but turely' recover our.forincr prea-,,
tige and the so long declining prosperity "
of our beautiful Southern .land. Being
firmly impressed with the.fore-shadow
ing^ of these approacldng.evcnhj we have
made arrangejuejitseomiuensiuate With
the demands jihev will 'disclose.
Our Agent In New York Is already in
receipt ot our instructions directing 1dm
to be on the alert for every sule and fail
ure as well aB every bouse tottering on
the brink of bankruptcy, so that he,.with
cash in hand may rake Jn eyery bargain
and thus er.aide .us during the present
year not only to Increase our own re
sources, but to become also a never
changing source of assistance to lour
friends by selling them goods Cue beiov
the wholesale murketof New York.
It was the credit system that paralytcd
onr Industries In the past and caused so
many interests to droop and wither while
every article needed for family consump*
tlon doubled in value. Thus while labor
\yu_Rinadequately compensated, goods of
every description approached almost fab
ulous' prices and'tbe'dally sweat ot a
man's brow barely .obtaio^d for himself
and family the commonest necessaries of
life. Too much credit will always oreaTo
demands greater than tbe sources of sup
ply will satisfy, hence everything takes
an upward tendency under its operations.
I On the other handcush transactions will
make the supply larger than the demand
and consequently goods fall to bottoui
prices when this rule prevails.
We pay .cash .for ?11 our goods before
they leave the place bought from. Hence
our ability .(independent of our unrivaled
facilities for buying) to outstrip and un
dersell all our competitors. The men
.chant who tbuys on time, ,(and who of
them doesn't) not.only has to pay the high
est prices for what I hey get but also the
additional percenUige added ou all credit
sales. Now all this oornes out of the con
