Epitome, of the Week's Exercises
Cumberland Female College.
, The commencement at CV F.. Col
lege, like Christmas, comes but once
a year, and during the continuance
of the varous exercises consequent
upon this event, public interest here
is about as completely absorbed in
them as in the usual Christmas
All of the school work and exam
inations were finished up last week.
The annual sermon was delivered at
the C. P. Church on Sunday morning
by Rev. D. C. Kelley, D. D., of
Nashville. Every seat in the church
was filled. While Dr. Kelley's effort
was quite interesting and entertain
ing throughout, to call it a sermon
would be a misnomor, for it partook
in very slight degree of the nature of
a sermon. It was an addreas of much
merit, rather of a seculor than of a re
ligious nature, and was well adapted
to the occasion for which it was de
livered, but not to the day and place of
its delivery. It obliterated the line
which should be distiuctly marked
between the pulpit and the platform.
He used no particular text, but took
for the subject of his address four wo
men of the Bible, viz : the mother
of Moses, Pharaoh's daughter, Debo
rah, and Mary, and incidentally
Martha, the sister of Mary. His ad
dress was replete with instruction
and good advice to the young ladies.
Taken altogether it wa3 an excellent
lecture,and the Doctor held the undi
vided attention of his large audience
for more than an hour.
On Monday night there was a con
cert consisting of musical and literary
exercises, and concluding with a cal
isthenic march and drill which cap
tivated all who saw it. This branch
has been taught during the last ten
months by Miss Mary L. McClure,
one of the music teachers, and the
march and drill on Monday night
was the prettiest ever given here,
The young ladies were beautifully
dressed in pink and green costumes,
and the promptness, precision and
grace with which they executed the
various movements and evolutions
was highly creditable to both them
selves and teacher.
The leading feature of Tuesday
night's entertainment was the Oper-
etta entitled Laila. The company of
lovely maidens and troupe of beauti
ful little fairies, each numbering a
score or more,presented very entrauc
ing spectacular effects. Miss Leila
McClure as Laila, the May Queen,
and Miss Mary Ritchey as Queen of
the Fairies, sustained their parts ad'
mirably, while all the participants
acquitted themselves with praise
worthy excellence.
The exercises of the graduating
class were given on Wednesday
night. The essays were as follows:
Miss Emma McCleary, of Texas;
Miss Bernie Beasley, of Tennessee ;
subject "Standing With Reluctant
Feet, where the Brook and River
Miss Carrie Mosely, of Tennessee ;
subject "Foodies."
Miss Lizzie Ford of Texas. (Miss
Ford was called home by illness in
her family a few weeks ago, and from
that same cause, was not enabled to
Miss Leila McClure, of Tennesssee;
subject "Whither."
Miss Laura Edna Warren, of Ten
nessee: valedictory subject; "Kest

This was followed by the confer
ring of degrees.and awarding medals
and diplomas, also a short address by
Mr. F. M. Smith, and a few remarks
by other gentlemen present.
The exercises throughout were irv
terspersed with vocal and instrumen
tal music of a high order, some of it
was so high that we couldn't ("catch
on"), and all of the entertainments
were unusually pleasant, interesting,
and entertaining.

years ago Jerry Bradley had a can
cerous sore on his face, near the right
