I A very i9teresting entertain ment was given at the Female College last Tuesday night, con sisting of music, speeches, reei r tations, etc. Prof. W. G. Brum baugh, of Penn., made the first speech. This gentl.inan is one of the most progressive teachers and distinguished educators of the r age. Ile is a fluent, forcible spea ker and his address was replete with fine illustrations, and many cogent reasons why our people should be aroused on this great question of education were given by the speaker. After a song by the choir, Prof. A. S. Smith of the No:'rmal School, delivered a pleas. ing and instructive address on the subject of Mathematics. C. W. Seals was then called on and made a brief impromptu talk, after which Miss Nellie Hughes, one of the Institute party, appeared before the audience in one of her inoom parable recitations, which was re ceived with rounds of applause. The efforts of the young lady showed that she was a natural elocutionist, and that her educa tion in that line had not been neg lected. The solos sung by Misses Lula Bridgeman and Lillian Fea therston did credit to the fair young choristers. The success of the entertain ment is due largely to Mr. G. G. Gill, who prcpared the programme and selected the music on a few hours' notice. $1000 Every Month.

Those Criminal Cases Again. Along about the first of March Julius Canty, Tom Beck, Bill Ware. Rob WrightanJ Tom Bugg, all colored, were tried here in .the court and convicted. There cases were appealed to the Sopreme Court and It is now the airst of June, and no official notice has the Shenrff ever received concern ikg the final disposition of these eases. We saw reported in the newspapers thatthe eases had all been decided adversely to the sea cused, but if so, the clerk of the Supreme Court in New Orleans, is certainly derelict of duty. It was his duty to have transaitted all the mandates in the eases as soon as the decisions were render ed. The Sheriff has no authority to convey these parties to the pen itentlary or execute the death war rant until -tiese requiremfents of 4 the clerk have been comphIed writh.i These four prisoners are coesting the parish full:60,00 per monthi.

EITor.s GUARninX A; announced throuith your col umns of the last issue a Picnic was given the school children of Homer, Athens and Gibbs on Webbs Creek, two miles south of Athens, where the railroad crosses said creek, last Saturday the 25th inst. and a larger crowd of pleasure seekers we have never before witnessed at an occa sion of this kind in Claiborne par ish; nor do we remember to have ever seen a crowd of such magni tude so generally satisfied with the recreation and pleasures of the day. Maj. Beardsley had announced through the columns of the GUAu DIAN and JOURNAL that the train would leave here at 8 o'clock a. m. but as early as 6:30 a. m., gay groups were seen emerging from every quarter of the town, and, with faces beaming with anticipat qd pleasure, hurryinglipon light and elastic footsteps in the direc tion of the depot. The train back ed up to the platform and the doors were thrown open at 7:30; then a scramble for seats began-seats for a crowd of at least 250 people, com posed of rollicking school children, fond parents and teachers, hand some young ladies, gallant young men, a small sprinkling of old bachelors and a few of thode nece.ý sary evils in all social circles dudes? The one passenger coaich was crowded in a trice-crowded till standing room was going at a pre mium, then a freight car and two flats, which were provided with very comfortable seats, were soon filled and the train moved away at a rapid speed which soon drew us up at the Athens depot, where quite a crowd was waiting to come I aboard. As stated above the train was already crowded, but Mr. Jno. Allen, the clever and affable con ductor, managed to get them on the cars and wedged together on seats in a mysterious manner, which suggested to the writer that he had, at some past stage of life, undergone some experience in the business of sardine packing. A short run of two miles landed us at the Picnic ground on the south bank of Webb's Creek. The crowd began to disperse in every direc tion; some to stroll through the dense forest with sketch-book and I pencil in hand; others to lounge upon the well arranged seats be neath the green and massive foliage of giant hickory and oaks, talking of-we know not what; others to try what effect their coaxing pow ers would have upon the tinny fam ily to leave the bed of the sitream and come ashore to add to the fes tivities of the day; and still otht r (who were the wiser portion of the crawd) to look after the numerous baskets, boxes, &c., wlhich were taken from a SPECIAL car on our ar rival at the grounds. The train returned from Gibbs about 10:30 a. m., bringing a large addition to the already large num ber of pleasure seekers, also the Gibbs String Band. After that the dancing began and, although Old Sol's warm rays were penetrating through the dense foliage overhead, making folders of stand linnen col lars and knocking the kinks out of bangs, there was no cessation or rest for the trippers of light fantas tic toes, except for dinner, until our departure for home. At noon dinner, the most impor tant 'feature of the occasion, was announced, and for the next hour all were thronged around the long table which was literally loaded with the choicest of edibles-edibles that could not fail to satisfy the most] epicurean taste in existence--edi bles that the good house-wives of Claiborne parish are famous for pro ducing, the bountifulness of which can be imagined when we say that this crowd of fully 400 people had their appetite fully appeased and left enough good, wholesome and E dainty food to feed a public gpther ing at an Agricultural Expeimen- a tal Station. In the afternoon an election for a Queen of May was called for, the candidates to be selected from and elected by the school children. The ballots were cast, the result an nounced and Miss Bettle Kelly, one of Homer's little fair haired beau ties declared election, and to Henry Johnson was given the honor of crowning her Queen of all the he shades of evening were gath ering in the east ere the train again halted at this beautiful and pictur- ( esque sylvan scene to take aboard its burdeh of human freight. All were eager to return home, though, it we be allowed to judgY from the smiling faces andnimble forms that crowded against each other in ef forts to gain seats, we couldn't de cide otherwise than that each and every one of the party had exper ienced a day of real enjoyment. Even the one solitary " Buake Hun ter," who to our certain knowledge succeeded in finding at least one ( snake that day, looked as happy as a lord. Sparkling wit, roars of mirth and merry songsa were heard on all sides aswe sped tbough the Vtherlu gloom en route loe. g Ite O~.~d att i4et8n A~l8; IDbout. &o:ks iad ~fl~b~gau ri -THE ---T~: ---..
