If we ait down at set of sun, And count the things that we have done, and counting, find, One self-denying act, one word That eaaed the heart of him who heard, One glance, most kind, That fell like sunshine where it went. Then we may count the day well spent. But through all the livelong day We've eased no heart by aye or nay, If through it all We've done no thing that we can trace, That brought the sunshine to a face; no act, most small, That helped some soul and nothing coat, Then count that day as worse than lost. .—Selected.

AT THE BIG TENT. The Billie Plumlee Company gave a finished and artistic performance of theirfeature play "The Sweetest Girl in Dixie" at the tent last night fully filling all expectations of the large audience present. From a dramatic standpoint it was the best of the many good plays staged here by this clever cast of players. Aunt Caroline was delightfully origin al and gave his many friends and ad mirers a careful interpretation of a well drawn character. The vaudeville numbers were pleasing and the selec tion by the orchestra fine. Tonight the play selected for the closing per formance will be the new corned "The Man From New Jersey" wit everything else new surrounding it. This laughable comedy has never been presented here and will be found fully up to the high standard of ex cellence established by the Plumlee company. of to Billie as to 4 YOU'LL FIND to We've given Great Consideration To Value, Style, and Quality— to In Our Selection Of—EASTER—. to Men's Wear of Quality BERNSTEIN'S *» TOMORROW CHRISTIAN tfftfiu.

The meeting takes place here to accommodate Gov ernor Horace F. Graham and Secre tary of State Guy W. Bailey, who are members of the Board.

Moha is expected to put up a game battle. Eddie has improved ful ly 50 per cent, since he showed in this home town, and has developed plenty of speed and ring generalship. Columbia is to be congratulated on season. The youngster, Cadore, who has been with the Dodgers before, looks as though he will stick this time. Cadore, formerly a resident of Brook lyn, is by far the beset of the young pitchers so far this spring. In ad dition to his box work he is an ex ception to the usual run of pitchers inasmuch as he can hit away above the average pitchers.
