As Exira lvas no auditorium, large

and both were filled with sym/pa,thet-|

er pnoud of our little city amd heij
fine school with its corps of excell
ent teachers, since this last exhibi
tion of work done along educa
tional lines.
Not only the high school, wthioh
furnished thie contestants, and tine
made a fine imipression uipom its
audience, but the musical nlumbers
given by thie grades, even tihe very
little people, at the Christian cimioh
gave promise of more music and
more contests in conning years.
The judges wtiiose names were
printed uipcm the pTogiramis, were:
Prin. Anna O. Temple Atlantic
Prin. F. S. Morley, Anduibon and
Atity. B. ^A. Goodspeed of Atilantic.
Mr. Goodspeed finding it impossi
ble ito skeepi his engagieiment, Misa
Clarke of Audubon kindly came in
his siteiad.
The speakers were so uniform in
excellence tbiait fair comiment can
scarcely be .made on individual con
testants. They all gave evidence of
faithful wtoTtk amd careful training.
One miosit pleasing feature was the
harmony between tihe choice of th(e
selection rendered and the person
ality of the speaker 111 almost every
instance.
Orations were given by Frank
Dimiok, '"The New South Francis

an impassioned crisis im our own,

•'The Ruggles' Dinner Party' given
by Agn:s Nelson "Rebecca's iSchool

Wedding" Roy Hei'sl.-y and the win

«!•. All of these choice (readings of
