Commencement Exercises at Tazewell
The commencement exercises of Taze?
well College were opened on last Friday
night with an entertainment by the pre?
paratory department, which was held in
the college chapel. The entertainment was
composed of recitations, declamations and
vocal and instrumental selections. We
have no programme of these exercises,but
are informed that the girls and boys acted
their parts well and made the entertain?
ment very interesting.
On Sunday morning at 11 o'clock, the
annual sermon was preached in the Meth?
odist church, by Rev. 0. Shelburne, of
Kockville, Md. The editor was out of
town anil was therefore unablo to attend
these services, but we are informed that
the sermon was a line one. Music was

and instrumental music were all so good
that it would be wrong or useless to spe?
The literary address was delivered by
Rev. C. Shelburne at the Methodist church
on Tuesday at 11 a. m., and was listened
to by a large and intelligent audience. Mr.
Shelburne's subject was "Wanted, a Man."
He treated it in a most interesting and
able manner, showing that the present
day demands complete manhood and wom?
anhood, and how, by proper educational
attainments, they may be attained.
The commencement exercises were con?
cluded on Tuesday night by the annual
celebration of Gillespie Literary Society,
which was held in the college chapel. The

What has been said of the entertainment
of the Iaeger Society can be repeated in
connection with Gillespie Society. It was
an excellent entertainment, the young
ladies and gentlemen acquitted themselves
The debate excited great interest in the
audience, and the speeches of the de?
baters received many cheers. While not
announced, a medal had been provided
for this contest. It was awarded by the
committee to Mr. Maynard, who spoke for
the negative. The audience was,
however, largely favorable to
Mr. McGuire, who represented the
affirmative, and some of the gentlemen
present were so fixed in this conviction
that they have determined to provide a
medal and present it to Mr. McGuire.
The exercises of the College as a whole
were successful and large crowds attended

A Point to Remember.
If you wish to purify your blood you
should take a medicine which cures blood
diseases. The record of cures by Hood's
Sarsaparilla proves that this is the best
medicine for the blood ever produced.
Hood's Sarsaparilla cures the most stub?
born cases and it is the medicine for you
to take if your blood is impure.
HOOD'S PILLS are the best after-dinner
pill; assist digestion, cure headache. 25c.
