Besides the great crowd of town solk who attended the performance of "The Clansman" last night and yes terday afternoon there were people from all of the little towns around Hattiesburg, who made up theater parties and came In to see the play, and It was worth the trouble and ex pense. In the afternoon the audience was an excellent one, but at night It was superb for the ladies vied with each other, and some of the gowns seen were exquisite. The scene in the well lighted theater before the rise of the curtain on the first act was a brilliant color scheme, for the women were ra diant in both personal beauty and In dress and the theater resembled some great social function. As to the performance itself, too much that Is good cannot be said, for It went off smoothly and with the ease that comes from a perfectly harmoni ous understanding of every performer as to his or her part in the play. It was splendidly staged, dressed and acted and It would be Invidious to attempt to specialize in speaking of the parts and the players who took them except to say that Mr. Ryan's "Silas Lynch" was so good that It made one actually hate him as the negro. Of course it must be said that the leading characters by Mr. Ritchie as "Ben Cameron," Miss Hayden as "Elsie Stoneman," and Miss Merse reau as "Flora" were without flaw. The other characters were so good that the list is too long to name them all. It may be said, however, that Mr. Jordan's "Stoneman" and Mr. Hoffman's Dr. Cameron" cannot be too highly praised and that Mr. Lin derman as "General Forrest" was splendid in his "make up" of that famous Confederate leader. Manager Bixler may have many an other good Bhow this season, but he will hardly have one that will please all of the people all of th,e time as nearly as did "The Clansman." There 1 b one thing more about "The Clansman," and that Is—the way It pleased the people certainly pleased Manager Bixler and if you don't be lieve that statement—why, ask him! RAMSEY A Co.

This, however, made the dor mitories so crowded that It is not in tended to accept more than 100 this session. Superintendent Dobyns says that within two years from now the institution will be taxed to its' utter most capacity even with accommoda tions for double the number of pupils heretofore taken in; and he says that the legislature now elected will be called upon to provide for more than the 200 which can be taken in next year. So positive is Superintendent Dobyns that this will be the case that he is already planning and arranging for the additional dormitory room. It is his idea to make the additional dor mitories separate and distinct build ings and located on each side of the present structure, in a semi-circle with the main building in the center of the arch.

Another, that it comes from Boston or Chicago. one is wrong. Style is the result of all elements combined, plus the person al influence of a few rich men who can afford to spend money on fits and freaks in clothes and who have a good deal of en joyment in planning their own models.

The race for the speakership of the next House of Representatives is a lively skirmish. The several candi dates all express confifleyjtrin the out come, though it is remitted that some first choice debts Lust h^paid and compliments paid before down will be made on a g n ..l test of strength. The friends oi Governor Noel are taking some inteiest in the race for Mr. Noel, aside fiom their own personal predilections. They say that proper courtesy to the Governor elect should dictate to- members the choice of a speaker who wcqld be thftroughly in harmony with the avowed and well known policies of the Governor. That while it wooC! not be proper to elect a speak* simply because he was a Noel man. yet a speaker should be chosen who is at least not antagonistic to Mil Noel's policies. In other words they plead for a fair test of the Noel policy and Ibis an only in- lit^HHH say by tbe election of a spcakd^HHB will at least be willing to make test of them. Mr. Noel has some very pronot^HBB views. Among others he favors^l^^B elective judiciary and lias long fough^H for it. He favors also constitutional ^ prohibition ultimately, and statutory prohibition now as against local op tion by counties. Mr. Noel also fa vors some redical changes in the pri mary election law, and he will doubt less devote his entire time and atten tion during the next session of the leg islature to get affirmative action on these several plans, in order that they may be given a thorough and fair test before he goes out of office.
