Special Correspondence.] Threatening weather of the last two days has served to keep away a gooti DKiuy people, though the at tendance has been fairly good. Heavy showers last night, but the track was dry and only a little show as is evidenced by the making of a naif mile in 49 today by Mallony in the fourth race. Tomorrow is Ladies’ Day and it will prove the event of the week, though the weather has not cleared this evening. By the way, a good many of the fait sex are not averse to pul'.log up a dollar or two—no more—on their judgment of the winner. One of ila m, the wife of a superintendent, has three in sne er -sion to her credit, and whe t makes i more surprising is tl.at she de ; .names solely from the name of the hor-;--.

The county canvass closes today and tomorrow the sovereign voters of Greene county will cast the decid ing vote on who is to be the n:minees for the various offices. The campaign has been a spirited one but the candidates have pulled through it with little manifestation of bad blood. The race for she riff has been exceptionally warm, yet the friends of the opposing candidates have wot ked quietly with enthusiasm and determination and each claims tlie victory. The race for county judge has been exceedingly warm and no one can tel! how it will terminate. There are eight candidates, all of them good men, and each will receive a good support. There is a pretty race, too, for treasurer, b-»lh of the young men in J the race being popular and each having a strong following. The race for circuit clerk, too, is a mixed problem that can only be un raveled v i ll the count of the ballots. Much interest also centers in the congressional race. Judge Taylor and Me. T rrish have been in the county all this week. Mr. Parrish has spoken at two appointments where his opponent was not present —II a! lid ay and Bethel, tie spoke at Hailiday last night, hays walked there from Marmaduke, a distance of sever: miles. The candidates spoke at Murraa duke yesterday and were greeted with the largest audience that has mat thorn since the canvass opened. It is conceded by all who heard them that Parrish had the crowd. Prof. Moore, who teaches in Hurricane township is of the opioioa that Par rish has the township at least two to one, while others estimate it three to one and many go so far as to make it four to one for Parrish. The can didates have Paragould today and are speaking at the court house.

A motion for a new trial will be re he, followed by an appeal, and -m meantime Patrick will be incare, rated at Sing Sing. He received the verdict of the jury with a sa: ca-.tic grin.

Owing to Hie rush we have been in, preparing for, and going through the examination we have been unable to report the items of our institute for the past two weeks; however, we want to say that we are still in the ring, not so egotis tic of what we “know,” perhaps as before the examination, yet, sat isfied of the fact that we have ad vanced very rapidly through the ef forts of our faithful teachers, and our own close application to our work. We realize that time is short, and that if we rise very high in this world we must improve the seconds as they glide by in their onward flight. Prof. Threlkeld gave us a pleas ant call some time ago. lie has just closed a very successful school at Gainesville. i’irs. ianus sent uie .National Loyal Temperance Legion Banner to our school last week and Prof. Thompson gave us a pleasant lec ture on the work being done by tlia noble women of oar proud land. This is a very beautiful bauuer and was won by Arkansas over all the other^states which make up our na tion. Who says Arkansas is not alright? We want to say, hurrah for the grand legion mustered un der the stars and stripes of this banner! May your work go on. Prof. I). R. Pool visited o- r school some days ago. He is an old pupil of our school, and one of the best teachers in the county. Miss Lillian De Weese is in school again after an absence of two weeks. Miss Lurline Grizzard is absent this week.
