Normal Notes, Immedintoly preceding an old-fashioned but always inter? esting spelling-match on Thurs? day evening in the school audi? torium, Miss Annabel Wood's class participated in a pleasant half hour of story-telling on the school campus. Miss Nannie Palmer's Uncle ICemus tales were exceedingly well done, and so was a true Civil War story told by Fleet Addington. The line up for the spelling mutch was the same as for the debate Tuesday evening, that is, Lee, Hussell and Dickonson counties was arrayed tigninst Wise, Scott and Buchanan. In the last inning, Fleet Adding? ton, of Scott, struck out on "rhetorician", a n d viotory perched on the pennant of the Leo Russell-DickenBon corabl nation. Of the nine who re? mained standing, seven hailed from the grand old county of Lee, from whence cometh good spellers, but only fair to mid dling debaters, since these counties wont down in defeat in the debating contest Tues? day evening. In addition to the spelling match, the evening's entertain? ment WOJ made very enjoyable by a short program by home talent which included a violin solo by Miss Virginia Bovertey, a recitation by Miss Kli/.ubeth Agee, a vocul Bolo by Miss Mary Skeon and a piano solo by Miss Kate Brown. Chup-d exercises F r i d a y morning were conducted in a very interesting manner by Bupt. French, o f Dickeuson county, mid afterwards, Supt. 11. W. rugate,of Russell, made a very helpful und entertaining address on "Service". In Iiis address, he traced briefly the lives of the men whose memo? ries we honor, und showed that their lives had been lives of service to humanity. 11?; then pointed out the wonderful op? portunity a teacher has to serve in the broadest and fullest sense and urged the teachers to take up their work this fall with a renewed desire to givo their best to the great work in which they are engaged. Prof. IL IL Young, local manager of the Normal, in a brief and eloquent talk urged upon the teachers the impor? tance of self improvement both from a professional und finan? cial point of view. Ho begged them not to be content teaching year after year without making progress, but to Und out what was holding them back and then push onward and upward. The general public will bo in? terested to learn that Miss Thomas, the instructor in Draw? ing, will give an exhibit of the work done by her classes dur? ing tili? entire week from three o'clock until live each day. She lias over a hundred spe? cimens ot the beautiful und ar? tistic work of thai most artistic of all nations, the Japanese, and theuo pictures will be tor ealo. They were sent her direct from Japan, and it will be on excellent opportunity for secur? ing a number of these charm? ing studies a t a reasonable price. ThiB Ib the last woek of the Normal, and the minds of tin. sludeut body is doubtless tilled with varying degrees of appro houbion regarding the probnblo outcome of the examinations to tho exclusion of everything else. Wo uincorely hope that they will oach and every one "get through" with living col? ors, since a quieter, loss con opicuous lot of young folks has never yot invaded our town during the session of tho Nor? mal.
