Harbison Agricultural College commencement took pince last week. Owing to the lack of time I witnessed a part of thc com mencement only. Thc Junior prize contest, was an interesting scene. Several young men figured in the combat anti made things lively. The speeches were not perfect, hut they were thought out well and delivered in a spirited manner. Some of the young men were eloquent and took the audience with them "by violence." The committee appointed to award the prize to thc best speaker had no easy task on its hands. Three of the young men l aced so near each other that noth ing hut the most watchful eye and critical faculty could detect who the superior man was. It was neck and neck. While I sat and followed the contest I was convinced that a Junior prize contest in schools of higher grade than Harbison Col lege would have to work very hard to excel this one. This is ail tlie more remarkable when it is remembered that these Harbison boys are in the rough, just from the sticks, so to speak. There was just one graduate for the year. The address of this man was thoughtful and attrac tive. The outlook for him is fair. I predict for him a future of use fulness in whatever sphere of ac tivity his lot may l>c cast. Another year the graduating class will he much larger. The music was a noteworthy item. Bright coi*.ge stings and others made the welkin ring. All students of Harbison are required lo sing. It is a part of their work, just like any other lesson, which must be studied and recited. The band of songsters at Harbison can interest and arouse the dullest, soul ever. While some of the best numbers were being sung I noticed many of the old people present looking on with their mouths wide open and amazed. XTliey were 'delighted with the miisic. . ... 7 '. - - ; I It wa$5 n. real- qoy to . see t)\# the commencement and to note how happy they were. Harbison I has spent only two or three years at Inno. S. C., and Inno is a very I small town. But see how the folks leonie out and enjoy themselves .and praise Harbison! Look at their clothing! Did you ever see such dresses? Did you ever see such wealth of colors? Believe me. Harbison commencement of j 1014 was the best for years. Old and young will cherish its memory for years. In closing, let me say that Har bison College is planted right in the midst of a dense Negro popu lation. The school owns some thing like 1.500 acres of land, which is being sold in lots on easy terms to colored people. The plan is to surround the college with an ideal Negro settlement which will help the college and which the college will benefit. This is a splendid school for boys. Parents desiring a good, safe school for their boys will find Harbison the place to send them. President Young told me that no matter how poor a. boy might be, if he was willing to work and study he would not be turned away from Harbison College. The course of study covers a large field. While the science of agriculture is the principal sub ject, it is hy no means the only thing taught. Many other things which a hoy will need to make himself efficient, c^tc, are taught. Dr. C. M. Young, President of the school, would be glad to give nil necessary information. G. T. Dillard. ?CARD OF THANKS. Mrs. I. W.

Af ter the general reception of guests in the drawing room, the party was conducted to the beau tiful tables and served with well prepared delicacies. The music was grand at all times.

The closing address was delivered by the president of the association, Mrs. D. C. Bulk ley. Much credit is due her for the successful evening. Too many thanks cannot be given Miss Frances V. Russell snd her interesting faculty for the great work they are doing in behalf of our people. This school has a fine $20,000 class room building and excellent girl dormi tories The school had its largest enrolment this season, but did not need to occupy the dormitory for little girls ; this shows that jpwards of 50 more girls can be accommodated easily, and Miss Russell wants them.

The graded school ,of our city has closed, and also the two col leges, thus considerably reducing our city's population, for most of the students have gone to their various homes to see friends and loving ones and to prepare to re turn again when school opens. Dr. N. C. Nix, pastor in charge of the Mt. Pisgah Baptist church of this city, is running a glorious revival in which he is assisted by the Rev. Dr. T. L. Jones, of Voor hees Institute, of Denmark.
