A Few Side Remarks.

"if you keep the paper up to the stan
dard you started with," etc. Well, we
will do that, if a respectable encour
agement is given us, and we believe it
will be. Like all editors and othr.-r
immortal men, we are impressed, in
spired and yield, more or less, to the
conditions of surroundings, paradoxi
cal as it may seem. Not boasting at !
all, but we feel capacitated to give our j
readers a "good" paper or a "sorry
paper. Uphold the Corinthian and the
Corinthian will do the rest. We have
a good, live town in which to solicit

Corinth's Gratifying Experience.
Corinth has been fortunate in the
way of manufacturing enterprises.
They have been successful institutions
and all of them are growing and con
stantly spreading out. This splendid
showing is ample evidepcc that as a lo

admirably situated, and growth along

Manager Scheuing of the Telephone
Exchange favored a number of his pa

greatly enjoyed by those at the 'phones.
The Corinthian was luckily in at the
time and was ready to respond to the
toast that Captain Spheuing was the
"onliest" man in town. The music
was furnished in the central offlee by
the string band under the touch of
Walter Bell, Joe Daniels, and others.

UNDER CORINTH'S SPIKES
SPLENDID MEETING IN PROGRESS
AT THÉ CHRISTIAN CHUUCH.
On the i8th at the Presbyteria n Church a
Meeting Begins—Loyal Temperance Le
gion—Other Church News Notes.
The. protracted meeting at the Chris
tian Church has been under way for
the past two weeks, and an interesting
and fruitful meeting it has proved to
be. Much religious zeal and fervor
lias been manifested, the congregations
have taxed the capacity of the church
building, even to the isles and many
have been turned away. Good preach
ing, good singing and general happy
conditions have marked the services.
Elder Stevens, who is the State Evan
gelist for his demonination, has rare
oratorial powers; clear, forcible and
pleasant in diction, and riviting the at
tention of his auditors at all times.
IIis personal appearance in the pulpit,
and, in a measure, his style of oratory,
somewhat resembles the famous Wil
liam Jenniug B. ; and, we may add, lus
popularty with no inconsiderable ele
ment of our people is about us great.
The meeting still continues and will
probably go ori until next week. Oyer
thirty additions to the church have
been noted thus far, and the number
will doubtless be increased consider
Loyal Temperance Legion.
Some twenty of the Loyal Temper
ance Legioners gathered at the Pastor's
Study of tlie Baptist church last Krida}'
afternoon. The day was cold, and it
was the first meeting in this church,
but so warm was the welcome accorded
them by the good and genial pastor,
that they at once felt at home, and had
a most enjoyable as well as profitable
meeting. Mrs. Disliman, the organist,
Mrs. Cnrlee, Mrs. pass and Miss Stout
were present. The lesson for the day
was on Self Control. While studying
it, an interesting and helpful discus
sion was engaged in by the boys and
girls as to which was the greater evil,
Cigarettes or Strong Drink. They will
continue to hold the meetings in the
Sunday School room of the Baptist
church at 3:30 every Friday afternoon.
Visitors will always be gladly welcom

DOES CORINTH. PROUD.
The Corinth Graded School One of the
Most Successful Institutions.
Among-the many changes noted
returning to Corinth none strikes us
more forcibly than those in connection
with tlie public schoo'is. A number ot
years ago small public schools were
scattered over the town, and thus the
energy required to build op one strong
school was dissipated. Now all the
school interest s are concentrated. A
nine months' term is maintained. Or
ganization and systematic work are
made possible; students baye definite
work before them and thus work to a
Slaving a largo body of pn
pils togetliv.r, each in bis proper place,
working regularly, creates an atmos
phere of business that is calculated V>
inspira all to greater activity,
spirit of work seems to bo in tlie town,
for we hear the school spoken of con
stantly by tho citizens.
From what we car. learn, there
more pupils in school no-.v than
before. Within tlie past three years
the attendance lias about doubled, and
the number of teachers increased to
meet the demands for more work.
The trustees are among the best cit
izens in the town. Notwithstanding
they are all active business men, they
And time to give the school their earn
est and faithful attention. They seem
to be ready at all times to do what
is best for the children of tlie school,
regardless of all other considerations.
They should be honored for their
fpithfu! services and receive the sup
port of all interested in having their
children receive tlie best school advan
With comfortable building, good
faculty, zealous board of aldermen,
industrious children, and an intelligent
and active school community, we see
no reason why Corinth should not con
tinue to have a good, strong public
All this interest displayed is certain
ly commendable, reflecting much cred
it on the city. The building Itself is
an ornament to the city, a testimonial
to Corinthian culture, progress and
enterprise; and it is one of the institu
tions tlintis encouraging liberally the
growth of the town.
