Social and Personal The School Graduates One of Its Best Classes. The Union City Training School com mencement was inaugurated last Sun day morning with a baccalaureate ser mon by Dev. J. M. Pickens, of MeKen zic. A large audience heard the distin guished minister in a splendid discourse. On Monday afternoon at the school auditorium the inter-society debate took place with the question: That Organized Labor is a Greater Menace to the United States Than Organized Capital. Affirma tive, Robert Chambers and Grover Wil son. Negative, Waller B. Caldwell and Fred Key. The society represented by the affirmative came off the victor. On Tuesday night at the opera house a large audience was assembled to hear the contest in declamation. This was as follows: Ed Harrison, Centralization of the United States; Fred Key, Mount of Laws; Brandon Davis, Abe Lincoln; Joel Brevard, f he South and Her Prob lems; Robert Chambers, Old Trappers and Christmas Dinners; Clarence Buf ford, The New South. Musical num bers' were furnished by Mr;' Ownby's class as already mentioned in the class recitals. The subjects selected were in deed highly suited to the occasion, and tbey were treated with the ripest thought and the speakers delivered them with poise, spirit and oratorical effect. We certainly would like to offor an opinion of the relative merits of these declama tions, but comparisons are sometimes unpleasant aud disappointing. Fortu nately everyone of them was an extra ordinary effort and a credit to the school. The judges awarded the medal offered by Judge Swiggart to Fred Key On Wednesday night at the opera house the graduating class appeared in one of the best oratorical exhibitions in the life of the Union City schools, outclassing any similar event probably by the Training School. The opera house was packed with the friends and patrons of tho school and everyone was high in praise of the event. The Train ing School has been fortunate in the character and personality of its young men and young ladies. The classes this year are the best of the school. The program appeared last week. The papers were as follows: Pratt Wad dell, English Literature; Taul Erwin, Robert E. Lee; Miss Ruby Henderson, Little Things; Grover Wilson, Paying the Price; Miss Katherine Henderson, Woman's Sphere; Ralph Quinn, Moral Courage, the Crown Jewel; Frank Key, Our Bob; Waller B. Caldwell, Progress of Civilization; Biddie Garrigan, Vir tues and Defects of a Young Woman; Valedictory, Ralph Quinn. Mr. Own by's class contributed the musical num bers, and they were iu keeping with the other features of the occasion. Prayer was offered by Rev. Zwingle, and when the exercises were closed the medals were delivered by W. II. Swiggart, Jr. Waller B. Caldwell won the medal of fered by Mr. Seid Waddell for the young men in the oratorical contest. Miss Biddie Garrigan won the medal for the young ladies offered by Dietzel Bros. Jewelry Co. Rev. Stuart delivered the certificates in bis usual delightful manner, and the following medals were also delivered: Scholarship medal offered by L. S. Parks, won by Harold Thompson, aver age 94 1-18; Latin medal offered by the faculty, won by Miss Neliio Dietzel, average 96; mathematics medal offered by Jno. T.

T. at the pleasant home of Mis McConnell on North Ury street. tor a faculty just tinisinng tneir year s work, it was a most delightful afternoon spent under the ehade of the trees with glimpses of housekeeping suggested by the needle and clothespin contests in which Miss Littleton won the paper of needles and Miss Spencer the tiny washboard. The "Love Story of the Civil War," told in musical numbers with Miss Ruth McConnell at the piano, was thoroughly enjoyed. At this mo ment all seemed expectantly awaiting something when the ice course was served, on which cupid was lightly treading, having tied his bow and ar rows to a quotation from Shakespeare. This with the illustration of love quota tions in which Miss Nobis won the prize, "Lucile," certainly kept the guests laughing and busy. Suddenly, Miss Walters announced a telegram for Mis Wiiigo. This to some extent caused the laughing to cease, when a telegram for each guest was given out, which read, "Cupid's Court, Love's Garden. Cupid announces the marriage of Miss Beth McConnell to Mr. Sher man Sutherland at an early date." Toasts were then given by Messrs. Own by and Reynolds, after which the guests departed, declaring Misses Walters and McConnell excellent entertainers. Miss Mabel Griffin has returned from an extended visit to Dyersburg and Jackson, where she was delightfully en tertained, being a house party guest at the former place, and the recipient of several social affairs at the latter.

Lovers of brilliant journal istic articles and breezy criticism, will recall the work of "Bab," of the Cou rier-Journal, whose charming work, twenty years ago, was a feature of the most influential newapaperof the South, conducted under the management of the irrepressible Col. Watterson. Personally, the most interesting piece of gossip flooding tho ears of the town people at present, and like all other gos sip gaining strength with repetition, is, that a primary department for public school pupils will be built on the west side. This department will be used for those youngsters, of course, who live in that vicinity and are now compelled, won by Grover Wilson Too much praise cannot be given to Miss Walters, the expression teacher, who coached and trained the essayists and declaimers. Miss Walters is not only an artist of ripe talent in her work, but she is in full accord and sympathy with every detail and delightfully con genial, very popular and eminently suc cessful in her achievements. We are authorized to announce that Miss Walters has consented to return to Union City and continue her work here next year. The young lady has been offered studio work by the Y. W. C.

A number of the pupils which bad been heard in the recital on Wednesday night before were present aud took part in the exercises, and contributed to one of the most excellent entertainments of the kind ever heard in this city. An un nsually large audience tilled the audito rium, and the most attentive interest was taken in the work from the opening to the close. The various numbers were rendered with spirit probably stimulated by the importance of the occasion, but there was back of it all the evidences of thorough training and assidious appli cation.
