PUBLIC GCHOOL CLOSING. lln Aniintl rxerrlur T i U Tlnco tit the 1,'iMirl-lnHino l.H'K VirtU, ONi; THING LIIAIS TO ANOTHER. bi The old adage, "one thing leads to another," is a truoone. One new industry started in a town is soon followed by another or many oth ers. The success of the first makes tho second necessary; or if it be an independent concern, encourages io establishment of others of like character. The rule has been )roven often and in many places )ig and little by many enterprises and little. It is well to get out of tho old rut at any point and at any time and in any way. There not a town or village in the country that can nof'make a break" in some direction if its business men and progressive men will get together to start some new enter prise of some description, if only to utilize tho wasted resources of the ocality or to supply the home de mand, the coilntry demand, for some products that is now purchas ed abroad. A canning factory, a furniture factory, a cotton factory in fact, there is a long list of in dustries that would pay a profita ble dividend when once established lere. All that is required to so cure these enterprises is for some of our progressive men to "make the break," and the rest will follow. ii. r. m io i i. 1 . a. roi TH. LET IS CELEKKATE. A big Fourth of July celebration should be worked up for Camden. it a very small expense a big crowd would be attracted here Something like a basket picnic could be provided, with good speak ing (of which we have a good sup ply of home talent to draw from) crames and other amusements ant at eight a fewT fireworks iu cour square or the suburbs of theiown AVe make the suggestion in time for ample preparation for a cele- . -9 t T 1 1 11 l oration, we would liko to see some of our enterprising and patri otic citizens take hold of this and let us have a Fourth of July cele bration that will be a credit to Camden. Other towns are doing this. Huntingdon, raised nearly 300 last year in a few hours, and they had a grand time. People from Camden attendedbecause we had no celebration at home! Must we let the great American bird which typifies liberty soar al around us, leaving us sitting iu the shadow of his wing? Get up a celebration, and the crowds will come. Don't delay. Call a mass meeting, appoint your committees. We can have a big celebration and patriotism will flow liko water. Besides, it will do tho town good. The annual cloning exercises of 'the public school took place Rt the ourt-house Thursday andrnday nights of last week before audien .11 iii ces mat completely imcKeu ma house, many being turned away after vainly attempting to get n footing even in the hallway leading to tho court room. The program Thursday night was greatly enjoyed, especially the drills and recitations, and tho dra ma, "Driven From Home," came in for its shareofapplau.se, though it was evident that those who took a part had not given much time or rehearsal to the play. ,The drama was repealed on Saturday night, and was presented with more snap and animation than on the first night, and was enjoyed and appre ciated. . Tho program Friday night in cluded a fan drill and tho drama, "Uncle Josiah's Courtship," which was keenly enjoyed by tho large audience present. Especially was it appreciated by young America who wa3 largely in evidence cud very noisy. The musical development of the children drilled for the occasion was strongly evident in the pro gram Thursday night. Singing ias been a part of the daily work of the students since last Septem ber. It was first intended to have only two nights of tho entertainment, but in order to defray the expense incurred in building a stage, etc., tho two dramas and one of the drills were repeated Saturday night and a small charge was made for tho above purpose. In summing up the program num bers it would be difficult to in Ji vidualize, even if we were eo inclin ed, where all was so well done. Professors Cooper and Lindsey and Mrs. Lindsey deserve much credit for the successful termina tiou of the school as well as the en joyable exercise closing the same, and if the question is left with the patrons of the school they would bo promptly chosen to teach the school for another year. Those students who expect to graduate have several weeks of study ahead of them before the final commencement exercises of Ben ton Seminary.
