Miss Crook's Class.
Miss Hattie May Crook, who has had charge of a class in expression in con nection with the ' Union City public schools during the year, closed last week with a recital on Friday night, with a program which has been heretofore published. This recital included sever al very interesting readings, a play and eonie musical numbers. The young ladies and the little girls rendered their parts in a way that was interesting to the audience, showing that their train ing had been of the best character. The entire performance was highly pleasing and made many friends for Miss Cook and the class. Fatal Auto Accident. San Antonio, Texas, May 29. Joseph E.

The Union City Training School, j which is steadfastly and unquestionably developing, and forming au important place in the educational world, espe cially in Tennessee, is now holding its annual commencement at Reynolds . i Opera House. The exercises began Wednesday night with a program which has heretofore been published. The- first part, under the direction of Mr. Newberry, was opened by invoca tion by Eev. Watson, followed in a contest in declamation by the younger boys and girls of the school. The mu sic was by Miss Killough's class, and there was a marked improvement over last year ia this department. The first number was by Georgia Usry, and then others by Allie B. Campbell, Virginia Swiggart, Clara Parks and Ruth Parks. The students reading were Charles Direks Moss, Elizabeth Moss, Virginia Swiggart, Ima Nailling, Clara Parks, Edward Parks, Lou Mott, Winnie Diet- zel, Nellie Dietzel, Fannie Mott Driskill, Carmen Tarks, Ruth Walters. It gives us the greatest pleasure to say that for uniform merit and standard of excel lence the subjects were treated by these young people in a remarkably in telligent manner. It may be said also, and without reflection upon any other department of the school, that the junior classes carried off the honors of the evening in the work of expression of declamation. There has never, as far as we are able to judge, been anything here to excel them. Two or three of the numbers, especially, were gems and a credit to both the pupil and the in structor. rart second was by the young men, assisted by Mr. Ownby's music pu pils, including Miss Rebecca McKiimis, Miss Cora rainier, Miss Mary Lou Driskill, Miss Katherine Morris. The piano numbers were fine and the violin anu vocal y Misses unskiii ana Morris very popular. The young men in the contest were Paul Erwm, William Morris Hardy j Robert Marshall, Russell Spradlin, Frank Key, Cecil Moss. The subjects were all suitable and appro priate and the young men covered them selves with much glory. The judires will render their decisions at the opera house this morning. Last night the graduating class occu pied the stage, a report of which we will present next week. Everything clean and fresh. Thone us. We deliver. Stone & Rainev. Photography by Electricity. A representative from this office called in the gallery and studio yesterday owned and conducted by Thos.Southworth.who has attained considerable distinction in the State as having introduced the use of court views as newspaper illustra tions, and who is also a portrait artist of extensive reputation. We found the photographer busy re touching some work. In the studio was a new apparatus which has just been installed, an invention which promises to revolutionize the work of photog raphy, the-real intention of which is to J replace the use of daylight with that of ight produced by electricity, a light which can be produced and diffused with uniformity and regularity at any hour of the day. He drew from Mr. South worth the fact that the present machine was the HOMOR -ROLL Union City Training school Students Who Have Made An Average of 85 per cent, on Different Subjects for the Entire School Year.
