INTERESTING EXERCISES A Pretty !>?}? mid it Turnout Kouem and Sitccchcs- Diplomas iibiiI I'rlxCM II W'ii?i Children*' Ilnv -lit tercMtlnK Addresses. Yesterday was a bright and beauti? ful summer's (in)-, just such an one as would be chosen for ;i school com? mencement and the chapel of th B'irst Ward School was crowded to overflowing with ladies wearing their now bonnets und dressed in all the feather weight fabrics of summer. The final exercises <>f the school were being held and about six bund red pupils were waiting with upl urned laces eager to learn who bad secured the different scholarships offered. Promptly at 2:15 o'clock the exer? cises began and the lirst piece on the program was a son:,' and recitation, ?'Welcome," by twenty live little girls from tin- second primary grade. Mi.-s Gussie Teaford played a march on the organ, the little girls marched in keep? ing step to the music. When th?y [iad taken t heir place on the platform as each girl on rlie first row recited her verse, she would turn over a letter that was pinned on the Irorit of her frock and after all bad been turned ov t t be word ''welcome" was spelled. This was very pretty. Next on the !i-t was the salutatory by Miss Lizzie Featherstone. The next number was a duet by M isse? t !arrie Hawks and (!ora Slaugh? ter. "What are the Wild Waves Say ing?" This was very well rendered, especially the last strain, where the two parts go together. Bennie Mays here entertained the audience with a recital of the ?"Schoo! Boys Troubles," a very amusing little piece. A sacred duel by Misses Elva Knepp and Fleeda Allison,was much enjoyed. Miss Rusa C rollt t presiding at the organ. A dialogue, "The Professions," rendered by four small boys, intensely amused the audience and ended With a hit at civil service reform One of the prettiest pieces In the whole evening entertainment wan the song by Miss Edna Royall, "Who'll buy my pretty flowers." The recitation. "Aunt Tabitha,"by Miss Kdith Tuggle, was a success and won applause. Miss Hattie Hart Bang "Tit lor Tat " with very great expression and com? pletely captivated the audience. She has a remarkable voice for one so young. The umbrella did! by the third primary grade was an unique feature in ! th?- little girls with their long gossamers and big umbrellas pre sen fed a very eu*e appearance. Sliss Alfa Fuukhouser recited a:: ode in Latin. Tim prettiest feature of the e er >-i-e.? was the loop drill by ten girls about twelve years old. There were eight blondes and the same 11 um bei of brunettes and half of them had llOOpS covered with pink and (In others-had blue and the effect pro [luced by the two was very pretty They were under perfect control ol the captain and did splendid. The valedictory was by Miss Emma Comer. It was an excellently writtei piece and Miss Comer's voice tr-mh led just enough to make it sound sweet. At this point the presentation of the scholarships took place. The Stare Female Normal Scholarship at Troutville, was secured by Miss Emma < torner, she having excelled in deportment, attendance and scholar? ship. The presentation speech was made by Hon. John W. Wood.-, oi this district, in his most happy style. The scholarship in Mrs. Partie (iil more'sschool was obtained by Miss Alia Fuukhouser, and the Superin? tendent of City Schools, Rush U. Derr, presented it. .Mr. JH-rr made quite a lengthy speech in which he complimented the work of-the school for the past year, and the valiant ef? forts of the teachers. "The teachers," said he. "have as? siduously attended totheirduties and have given entire satisfaction to pu? pils' parents, and in fact, all who are connected with the public school sys? tem. Throughout the year every? thing has been harmonious and great results have been accompolished. The work has been well done and the public schools of Koanokeare a credit to the city. We are somewhat crowd ed now, but hope to have better equipped school rooms next year." The scholarship in the Montgomery Fehnale college, offered by Proffessors Royall and Beckham, was secured by Miss Lena Burnett, Professor Beck? ner, in a florid speech prelecting it. The scholarship in the Synodical col? lege, of Rogersville, Tenn., was won by Misses Maude Knepp and Lizzie De Grant, Rev. WT. C.Campbell pre? senting. The Roanoke college scholarship was won by Mr. M Early St Clair, and J. I Goodman presented it. The Hamden-Sidney scholorsbip was won by Francis Paymj. It was hard to hear Mr. John M. Hart's speech, there was a baby yelling at the top of its voice all tha time, and sometimes Mr. Hart had the ascend? ing and then again the child would be on top. Miss Lillian Hoell was presented a prize for keeping the best set of books in Miss Stone's rooms and Edith Tug? gle also won one for the best map. The scholars in Miss Stone's room presented her with a bouquet of beau? tiful flowers. Miss Bettie Foster also received a token of affection from her children. The exercises then closed WITH THK SIM i:M S. Ilrown, (bo World Famed Mind Render to bo Hero .Hominy M;rht. Next Monday night at the Opera House our citizens will have an op? portunity of witnessing one of the most, remarkable and meritorious ex? hibitions of mysterious phenomena ever given in Roanoke. It is the manifestation of mind reading and spiritualistic power through the mediumship of J.

Mr. Brown has been before the pub lie 20 years and has been subjected to the severest tests that could be devised by the most eminent scientific men in this country and throughout F11 rope.

He has exper? ience, middle age, ability, energy and courage, with a trood shar? of execu? tive abi'ity. But executive ability is not always the only thing required.

He is built on the big model of most Kentuckians?large in frame, tall, broad shouldered and large hands and feet, and, in movement, rather awkward. He was admitted to the bar in 1858, and has never given up hi? practice since.
