Law rence; "Realism in the Present Period of American and English Literature" and valedictory, by Miss Lucas Wyly. The essays showed careful preparation, aud re flected as much credit upon the faculty of the seminary ns those of the class of 1001. The graduates were : Bertram D Johtwon, Miss Alma K. Greer. William J. Allen, Miss Paulino Brooks, L. Horace Pressou, Elbert II. E. Florence, Miss Allie Alsup, Clifford II. Bateinan, J. M. Lock hart, Miss Lucas Wyly and Isaac N. Lawrence. The diplomas were preceuted by Dr. W. T. Hubbs, president of the school board. The exercises closed with a liter ary address by Hon. Tom C. Rye. Aside from its literary merit, which was of the highest order, the ad dress was a masterly effort and was full of poetic thought as well as of good counsel. Mr. Rye was givqn fln!A nffAnilnn rlnrlnrr ita rial t impir and more than sustained his repu tation for oratory and eloquence, which is co-extensive with the bounds of Tennessee and the South mi i i i ine graduating class gavo an entertainment at the court-house Tuesday evening to a crowded house. The program iucluded the class drama, "Because I Love You," and recitations by Miss Bessie Bowles and Miss Joe Sullivan. The drama was full of romance and thrilling climaxes, the comedy element being particularly strong, and was presented to an audience whose appreciation was not less than their merit. As the gypsy waif, Miss Lucas Wyly was charm ingly good and she won new lau rels. Miss Alma Greer succeeded admirably in the role of a wilful, wayward heiress, and Miss Pauline Brooks and Miss Allie Alsup es sayed their parts in a manner which captivated the audience. Messrs. M. Lockhart, Horace Presson, Bertram Johnson, Clifford Bate man, Elbert Florence, Jack Allen and Isaac Lawrence (Lige) were equal in every way to their special role and deserved the applause which was tendered them at every climax in the production. The recitations of Miss Bessie Bowles and Miss Joe Sullivan were deserv ing of the praise and applause re ceived. The climaxes of the drama were entirely new and excitingly effect ive. The costumes were elegant, and the staging was much better than usual.. The acting was next to perfection and would have done credit to professionals, and the largo audience was united in pro nouncing it one of the best enter tainments of the kind ever given in Camden. The drama will be presented at Big Sandy Saturday night. ii. r. n hi ail, i. a. runs.
