WHO IS TO BLAME?
The election in Virginia last ".Tuesday
resulted in a sweeping victory for De?
mocracy, both as to the State at large
and for members of the legislature. In
view of the divisions in the ranks of the
Republicans, and the almost utter ab?
sence of organization on the part of those
opposed to the errors and inequalities of
Democratic rule, this might have been
A result of uninterrupted .control in
State and local affairs, bossism and ring
rule flourished in the Democratic party
to a degree which [disgusted honest and
independent votjrs everywhere to such an
extent that only organized efforts and
determined opposition to 'existing meth?
ods seemed possible to overthrow such
unscrupulous combinations and bring
about a healthful chauce in the conduct
The injustice of the present election
machinery of the State hail aroused the
determined opposition of "a largo class of
intelligent and fair-minded men who saw
in the unfairness of such practices u se?
rious danger to the well-being of all
classes of the people.
In the'election just concluded the Dem?
ocratic party has triumphed both as to
the contest for State officers and members
of the legis'ature. The Republican vote
was particularly light, "both in regard to
the former and the latter, even where in?
dependent candidates were iuduced to
enter tho lieldlwitb the promise of Re?
publican support. In this district, espe?
cially, where all tho conditions were
favorable for the success of such candi?
dates, they were defeated, not so much
from superior organization on the part of
their opponents as from tho apathy of
their supposed friends. In other"jwords,
the men who by all the principles of grat?
itude should have gone to the polls and
voted for McClanahan and Hartwell, as'a
rule remained at home and allowed the
election to go by default, as the official
count will show.
HER LAST PRAYER.

they were brought to her she began writ?
ing her last prayer. She wrote: "I hope

Then the pencil fell from her fingers
and she lay back on her pillow and died.

A Most Gratifying Showing for the P ist |
The monthly statement for the month

WiltoD Lackaye in the "Royal Secret" at
costume effects "and with a lot of ro?
mance surrounding the hading charac?
ter. Such plays as "Under the Red
Robe," "Rosemary" and "The Prisoner
of Zenda" have been liked and apprecia?
ted as much by older theatre-goers as by
the younger generation, and to use a pop?
ular expression, "There is nothing new
under the sun," the stage world seems to
be revolving in its career to that point
which at one time was famous for what
is now known as the costume drama.
M". Lackaye thoroughly realizes and
fully appreciates this eviden' trend in
the public taste for a change from the
more modern society piny to that of the
romantic and costume period of the
drama. It is over these plays that our
grandfathers have dwelled upon in relat?
ing what they have remembered and liked
best in the drama. So it i& that the
younger generation is now falling into
their footsteps, and shows n stronger ap?
preciation of these plays than of any oth?
ers. Mr. Lackaye hopes'that in present?
ing "The Royal Secret" he will meet
with a cordial response on the part of the
theatre-goers. The period in French his?
tory in which Louis XIV figures conspic?
uously has been extensively drawn upon
by the authors of Mr. Lacknye's play,
and there will be found situations of
thrilling dramatic interest, as well as
those in which the romance of love plays,
perhaps, the most Important part. "The
Royal Secret" will be seen at Academy

It is an lndlsputed fuct that nothing
has ever so developed the art. Indus?
tries and talents of American women
as have the woman's department of
the Chicago world's fair, the Cotton
States and International exposition
and the Nashville Centennial.
By having buildings exclusively de?
voted to woman's work, a dignity and
distinction hits been given it that en?
couraged the efforts of all ambitious
women, and in every line of work in
which they are associated there seems
to be a new life given. Especially to
the works of art among women has
impetus been given, and the woman s
department of the Tennessee Centen?
nial gives patriotic recognition to the
women of that State who are deserv?
ing in their developments of art and
MISS lA'in TAN'PF.t.t..
Among the most Interesting features
!n the woman's building is the ligur
een of the beautiful Mis. Van Leer
Klrkman, president of the woman's
department. It is the work of Miss
Euid Yandell, the sculptor, and among
the most talented of the young
artists in the country. The ar?
tistic beauty of the flgureen has at?
tracted enthusiastic criticism from
those capable of judging, and Miss
Yandell is meeting with the compli?
ments and attentions thaUare the just
tributes to genius.
Miss Yandell is a Kr-ntucky girl,
and at the Columbian exposition she
was first recognized as posse-sing ex?
ceptional talent, and her work dis?
played there in the sculptured figures j
was the admiration of the sightseers|
that made a study of the manifold
beauties of the woman's building
The figure of the East Indian at prayet
was pronounced by renowned att
critics to be one superb in conception.
A like mead of praise was given her
Daniel Hoone. Now it has lemalned
for Miss Yandell to accomplish some
thing wholly new in the line of Bculp
tare. She has lately unveiled the "fig
ureen," which represent.- in sculpture
what a miniature dors in portraiture.
The popularity of the "figureen" ha;
been wide and immediate.
Are you satisfied with a desire tc

a college education and make oapor

her mother and father had before

college in a small town with a prepar?

often begins her education as a "junior

In which she, and often a room mato

She keeps up in her studies, Jo ns a

breaks down. That is the least she
