This closed one of the most delightful en
tertainments our section has ever enjoyed,
oupled with the gratification that this
school -is an honor to oar county. The
speeches were of great taste and delivered
with eloquence and decorum which would
have done credit to any high school, and
uch sweet music, rendered by Mrs. W. W.
Benbow, stirs the soul and carries us back
to the days of Beethoven, when the soldiers
wished to die amid music, sweet music.
The address of Prof. Capers was well
timed and exceedingly appropriate and
highly appreciated. He spoke at length
upon the great necessity of education and
the training of the young mind at home
nd at the school-room. He spoke of the
duties of the parents to children in home
preparation for school; he spoke of the
zeal and energy with which the patrons
had assisted him in the great work and his
appreciation for -their efforts; he made clear
the duties of parents in home rule mould
ing the young mind for the battles of this
life and while he was proud of the advance
mont of his school he enjoined upon every
scholar to press forward and continue un
til the school would take place with other
high schools of the State. His kind and
pleasant address to the little children has
won their hearLs and I wish I could pro.
duce his address for your readers but sutice
to say we are fortunate in procuring the
serrices of this intellectual and zealous
young man to train our children.
The residence of Col. R. R. Billups on
Christmas night was the scene of many
happy and beautiful ladies and anxious
young men enjoying the evening with
music and song. A masquerade party from
Davis Station conducted by that prince of
"cheer and ple-asantziess," Bill Trescott,
joined this happy band which proved a
pleasing and pleasant supprise indeed.
Their costumes were in great taste. This
addition of our friends of Davis Station
was a treat. We extend to our genial friend
Bill our congratulutions wishing him a
happy new year and trusting he may live
to make us happy another Christmas. L.

church Saturday. After excluding five
members for drinking, cursing. and swear

any member that takes a drink of intoxi

all our chuches need-a line drawn between
professors of religion and the world, to
keep our members on one side or the other.

that has ever been since my time, to get

Button's Farewell to Foreston.
The sun is sinking royally to rest behind
the western clouds as we wander through
the town. Nature is still supreme ini her
gorgeous beauty, her crimson dyes, her b
golden fields, and rich floods of light, which
lovingly kiss the pine forests, the distant
hills, the soft green valleys, the roofs of the (
quiet %illage, and the towers of its modest
churches. There is the cemetery, with its
marble, the glittering shaft, and the white n,
slab, bearing their tablets of peaceful livts.
Beneath the sod rest the weary heads, and
the folded hands, in sweet oblivion of life's
fierce battles, of the mad, surging tide of
rancor, humiliation. and the sordid, soul
less sway of mammon.
Voices from that inner world-memory
call to us as we wander over the wide, des
olate wastes of the present, and unseen
hands are beckoning to us to go back to
those scenes so interwoven with the desti
ny of some whose names make music in
our heart. There is "la petite" brunette,
whose eyes flash and beam, as caprice or at
emotion seizes her. There the fairy blonde til
who looked so dangerously pretty at the
cracker ball on Tuesday night.
Now, the staturesque repose of Miss
awakens our sincere admiration. Those
eyes of hazel gray reveal the immaculate
purity of a sterling character, of inflexible
will, lofty aspirations, and strong, fervent, G
religious principles; we exult in the con
sciousness that her name is engraven deep
ly on our heart as friend.
Ah! We sigh when we think of a future
which will tear us from the many flowers -
clustering around our path. Here are
Roses and Daisies and Olives, with all the
inherited sweetness of their floral name

adorned the pages of classical fiction and
the drama--Blanches, Ethlyns, Augustas,
Janies, Coras, Paulines, Margarets, Al
leines, Lulus, and one immortal in song,
Juanita. Theresare, besides, multitudes of
lesser deities, Zaydas, Inez, Florides, Fan- c
nies, Gertrudes, and Willies, each presiding
in turn over our young affections, and all
playing their part in this tender romance. al
Oh, iron hand of destiny ! Bear lightly on
this poor waif, this "nursling of the storm."
Yet, as we glance around the spell is
broken, the charm dissolved. The future
is ours; on its unwritten pages we hope to

Dress is more than mere fashion now-a-days; it has become an art.
The same can be applied to business. 60-day cut prices availeth nothing, only

IN THESE WE LEAD.
Careful buying is one-half the secret of economical merchandising. Economical
buying consists in the perfect adaption of style and genuine need of consumer.
IN THESE WE LEAD.
Many merchants have a mania for buying that which is never used, simply because
the articles are at tempting prices.
These We Never Do.
