Town Full of Students The sight of flashing pennants and the sound of loyal school yells are seen and heard every where today. On the street high school boys and girls pass in groups of fours and fives, talking excitedly of endurance, ten second men,' high hurdles, our team and other kindred sub jects. Confidence and school loyalty show in the faces of the girls The boys are going about with a determined look which promises well for a close and' exciiing contest. i mat mese meets eacn ear;of counsel the court took the are very popular and productive ; mattpr umor advisement until of much good is shown by the increase in the number of schools entered.

Every one there eeemed to be opposed to both propositions and were very enthusiastic in speaking their sentiments.

IBB Davi Wins In Content In the inter-state contest held at the Normal, Friday evening. Glenn W. Davis of Iowa, won first with Harbison, of Missouri, second. The decision between Harbison and Davis was close, but the judges considered Davis the superior orator by a very small degree, . Harbison was placed at a dis advantage by having to speak first, which the rulo3 of the otganizxtion required. He de livered his oration. "The Con flict" in a masterly manner. His subject matter was of labor and capital, which does not lend itself to oratory very will. He made up for this handicap in logical and forceful argument. It was the consense of all who heard the contest, that no better man could have been chosen to represent the school and state, Young Cape Man Marries Hugo J. Miller, left for Ne vada, Mo., where he was mar ried to Miss Wood, Wednesday. Mr. Miller's mother and sister of, Jackson, were the only mem bers of his family present.

Early Sunday morning, sever- i al negros gathered at the home ! r A.4k.. i .l. j ui nuains w tyfiiu me aay in bacchanalian revelry. To do jus tice to the god of song and wine to whom they were gathered to do homage, they had previously provided themselves with a bountiful supply of beer in lieu of the sweet juice of the grape. In the course of the day this popular beverage proved an ex cellent substitute, and the par ticipants became hilarious. In fact one, Wiley Abbot became so noisy that officer Hutson. of the Haarig beat, had to arrest him jand place him in the city jail for I peace disturbance. His host went to the jail and 'tried to persuade the officer to release him, which was refused. Adams then returned to his ! home in anger. His wife, with ! whom he h3d already quarreled j several times through the day. jand several other negros were in j the yard when he returned. , I According to the report of the : affair. Adams walked into the yard, drew his revolver upon his wife and fired. Conflicting ac counts were given by those who witnessed the deed. Adam3 was immediately locked up.

When Maevers was subjected to the anaesthetic hi3 heart be- ; came so weak that the surgeons nan 10 revive mm and proceed with the operations without .the aid of any drug to lessen the sensibility of the nerves. Sever al men held him while the knife and saw were applied to the live nerves. The cries of agony were heard for several blocks. After the operation he recov ered rapidly enough to return to his home at Egypt Mills.
