All who came In contact with Mr. Johnson soon learned to love and esteem him. He wore a smile -his face, Indicative of his kind , genial disposition. He lived a life of usefulness, to hia country and to hla fellow-man worthy of emulation. He was a man of high aspiration. When he undertook to accomplish his designs, let them be what they might. The first thing in considera tion, with him, was to know the cause he espoused, was a righteous one. Then his ambition was to press forward until victory was his. Al most all the people of Chatham County knew Mr. Johnson. He ' served In the capacity of deputy sheriff In his township about 14 years. The very efficient service ren- ; dered by him In that capacity won 1 favor for him. In his county, and In ' 1898 he was nominated for high sheriff of his county, and was elected by a safe majority, notwithstanding the fact that he had the most popu lar man In the Democratic party, at that time, .as his opponent.

Editor The Caucasian: The third year of East Carolina Teachers' Training School opened on Septem ber 26th. President Wright made a brief, but strong opening address. The first two days were given up to classification and registration. At the close of the first week of the fall term, work was progressing as smoothly as if no vacation had in terrupted. A larger number has been j enrolled than at this date in either 6. In all of our national experience there is not even one exception to these propositions. ' 7.

Prof. Wilson, who has had the work of both teach er and bursar, now devotes his entire time to teaching. Miss Eugenia Cassidey, of Laurin burg, has charge of the dining-room. President Wright during the sec ond week of the new term made a series of clear, practical talks' on the purpose of the school and of the stu dent. He outlined the three periods in the educational growth in North Carolina: (1) The period of realiza tion of the need of public schools; (2) the building of school-houses; (3) the realization of the need of ef ficient teachers. He dwelt on the last as the problem the State is now attempting to solve. This school was established to help meet the demand for efficient teachers, and each stu dent is here to help the school fulfill its mission.
