in the halls of the Southorn Seminary.
The occasion' for to-night's merriment
was the." regular public monthly" recital' in
vocal and 'instrumental music and elocu

art room to which the guests were con
ducted after the recital could- not ac
commodate the crowd. The exhibition
was a fine one. ;md it was greatly en
joyed. The tapestry painting seemed to
give special satisfaction and pleasure.
•The oil and water colors also were most
creditable. It was, indeed, a beautiful
and inspiring sight to see the fine look

strains of a march. The president spoke
of the significance of the scene. He paid
a high compliment to the earnestne.ss'ahd
fidelity of the young Indies in their clasp
work, but said there was "something- that
was still better that might be snid of
them, and that was that they had been
pleasant and submissive through all tho
discipline and management of the school.
He- declared it was a great thing to be
able to say this.

Mr. E. C. Glass, superintendent .of the
Lynchburg schools, was at the .office of
Secretary Frank- P. Brent, of the State
Boara of Education, yesterday. They
were 'discussing" the plans for the sum
mer normal to be held at the University
of Virginia 'during the coming summer.
Mr. Glass has secured the services of
Dr. E. B. Titchenor. of Cornell Univer
sity, as director of psychology at the nor
mal Dr. Titchenor will be accompanied
by his assistant. Professor Laird of the
same institution, and will be one of the
most eniinent'acquisitions to the faculty
of the summer school. He will bring
with him a complete psychological labo
ratory outfit for experimental .purposes.
Dr. Titchenor is the author of several
college text books on psychology, among
them the "Outline of Psychology" and
tne "Primer of Psychology," and he is
recognized as. the most prominent teach
-■r of experimental psychology in the
United . States. Mr. Glass is very much
pleased at the success of his efforts in
securing Dr. Titchenor. as other normal
pchools in the country have been after _
him. but, he. decided to come to .the Arir-"A r ir-"
g:nia normal in preference to others.
:Dr. AV.:S. Currell. of AVashington and
T^ce. has been engaged for four weeks
during the session of the summer nor
mal. He will have charge of the criti
cal study of literature, and will conduct
classes in daily themes. Dr. Charles W.
Kent, of the University of A r irginia. will
have the same work that he so success
fully conducted last summer.
To accommodate the large number of
teachers who will attend the normal.
Mr. Glnss has secured the use of the
University dormitories, where 300 teach
ers will room during the period that the
school is in session. The dormitories will
be alloled on the basis of first come first
served, and their nearness to; the class
rooms will make them very desirable
Mr. Glass said that he thought the
railroads would grant to the Virginia
normal, the same rales that were given
to the Knoxville normal last summer
that is, a rate of one fare for the round
trip. Last year, the rate was one and a
third fare to teachers in A r irginia, and no
special rates were given to teachers from
other Statpg. The Virginia normal was
discriminated against with the result
that many teachers from Southern
States who wanted to come to the Arir
ginia normal selected the Knoxville
school on account of the special rates
given to that institution. Mr. Glass.be
iteves that the conditions will be chang
ed this year, and in, anticipation of that
belief he will advertise the advantages of
the FChool at Charlottesville throughout
the States of North Carolina. Maryland,
West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.
The attendance at the A r irginia normal
last summer ..was over 1.100. and tho out
look for this summer indicates that there
will.be an increase over that number.
..Mr. Glass would not say anything
about his expected candidacy for Super
intendent of Public Instruction in this
State. He has been prominently men
tioned as the member of the new Board
of Education to represent the city
The Board of Public .Works .was. in
session at Governor Montague's- office
yesterday. A greater portion of the time
was spent, in hearing the contest between
the Newport News electric railway and
the Hampton Roads electric railway as

granted the latter company the right to

inmates -of the State prison who have
made gcod- records during their confine
ment, will be made happy by their re
lease-during the approaching holidays.

Since the publication of "The Love Let
ters of Fnlstafi"," the progress 'of ■: James
Branch Cahell in tho world of letters has
been watched with interest, especially in
Richmond.'- where he is so well known,
and his many admirers v.-ill be glad to
know that the Smart Set for January
prints another story -from him. "A
Shadowy Past" is not nearly so gruesome
as /it sounds; in fact, it suggests that
the writer. -with his bright style and
pointed wit. might make even a shady
past attractive. The motif of the present
story is hardly more than an episode,
but, as in the case of all well-written
fiction, much more is implied than meets
the eye; and if there is a vein of sly cyni
cism underlying the brightness, we may
forgive it, provided, of course", it be in
our own peculiar line of cynicism. Like
the story first alluded to. "A'~Shaclowy
Past" has to do with love letters, but
what part they play in- the action of the
plot must be left. to the reader.
This number of the Smart Set presents,
perhaps, moro than the customary array
of entertaining fiction, catchy verse and
pointed paragraphs. Guy \Vetmore-Carryl
contributes the opening story, the title
of. which is "'The Lieutenant Governor."
a.nd such names as Carmen Sylva, Edgar
Saltus, Maurice Jjrancis Egan, Clinton
Scollard and many others of equal note,
give sufficient guarantee" of excellence.
