A Sensational Gretna Green Affair at LouLsburg. Louisburg, N. C, June 11. A mar riage somewhat out of the ordinary took place here yesterday afternoon. It was between Mr. N. B. T. Coleman, of Williamsburg, Va., and Min Ella Clements, of Henderson. It seems that there was some objection on the part of Miss Clements' parents and therefore Mr. Coleman and his pros pective bride took a team to Frank lin ton. Miss Ida Clements, a younger sister, knew of the arrangement and went on the train, arriving ahead of Mr. Coleman. The whole party then came over here in a carriage and a good deal of excitement was created when the team was driven to the court house door and Mr. Coleman and Miss Clements went into the office of the Register. As rumors spread that the irate father was following close on the heels of the fleeing pair and that trouble would perhaps ensue much in terest was manifested. However, no trouble came and after procuring the necessary license they went to the Methodist parsonage and were mar ried by Rev. G. F. Smith and went immediately to Henderson. Newt and Observer.

An Evening With Shakespeare The elegant home of Mrs. E. G. Davis presented a most inviting appearance as we approached on Thursday evening, rich gleams of light from crimson shaded lamps falling on the dewy lawn and beds of incense-breathing flowers. Within the spacious rooms were gathered men and women whose faces wore an unusual degree of interest and expectation. The occasion was the last meeting for the season of the Woman's Book Club, and it was worthy the fine sense of fitness and cultivated taste of the hostess and president Mrs. Davis to present to the members of the Club and to her invited guests as speaker, or, we may say teacher for the evening, that master of English Literature Rev. Thos. Hume, D. D. He announced as his subject The Ethics of Shakespeare. After dwelling upon the fact that Shakespeare holds up to his readers a faithful mirror of manners and life not restricted to time or place, that his characters are the genuine progeny of humanity, that he deals with the univer sal sentiments and passions of mankind, the speaker demonstrated in his clear and forcible style that a tone of healthy morality pervaded the dramas of Shake speare, deep conviction of the truths of the Christian religion, recognition of the justice of the law of compensation, all infractions of love and equity being punished, often postponed, always fol lowing crime. We are incompetent to give an adequate idea of this most ad mirable, lecture. Let it suffice to say that his hearers were delighted and grateful for the benefit received for they had gained something of the power of oue who has sounded the depths of char acter 'and the inner nature of the great dramatist. After partaking of delicate refresh ments gracefully served, the goodly com pany separated each one with body in vigorated, intelligence quickened, imag ination expanded and exalted and soul more in touch with the great and good of all ages.

It should not only be the policy to preserve the shade trees in every town but the purpose and practice to increase and perpetuate their number. As an exchange remarks: "Some towns, and especially in the South, cut away their shade trees in order to 'show off' their business centers. Business will show itself if backed by the right kind of spirit. We have always advocated shade and prefer it to awnings, which are generally the substitute. Comforts to pedestrians and folks generally in hot weather, are not many, but shade is one, and if it can be had for a little care aud less expense, give n shade trees, we say, first, last and all the time, business center, at homes, and wherever the feet of humanity tread or their beads repose."

Wednesday,- June 10th marked the close of the second year's work of the Woman's Literary Club, and a special meeting was held at the residence of the President, Mrs. E. G. Davis. The parlors were filled with the mem bers of the Club and their friends, as sembled to hear a Shakespearean lecture on their invitation by Dr. Hume, of the University of North Carolina. The dis tinguished speaker chose for his subject "Shakespeare as a moral teacher," and for more than an hour held the undi vided attention of his hearers, while he brought forth gems of thought from an apparently unlimited store. It is given to few to have explored so thoroughly, to have comprehended bo entirely the plays of the great poet. Dr. Hume con sidered that, apart from Bible, the most terrible and inspiring exemplifications of psycological and ethical laws are found in the plays of Shakespeare; that ha is the best guide, philosopher and friend in our personal experiences and our social relations; that his ethical philosophy is clearly defined and that while he is a dis sector of the meannesses and follies of mankind, he is a believer in the triumph of good over evil in tainted humanity. He also showed how Shakespeare, using the imagination as the best interpreter, avoids didastic teaching, being too true an artist to resort to sermonizing and the laying on of moral precept, but pre ferring to exalt the instincts of the heart, allows his morality to interpene trate and suffuse his poetry. Shakes peare teaches that sin reacts upon the sinner and that penalty follows hard upon transgression. He makes the vil lian Edmund utter a two-edged truth that fails not to cut into himself when he ridicules those who "make guilty of their disasters the sun, the moon and the stars" yet declares nature to be his goddess whose laws he must obey, show ing the atheist to be the most supersti tious of beings. Much of the lecture was given to de picting the career of Falstaff and his moral influence over Shakespeare's dar ling Henry, who in "seeing life" kept dis moral nature intact. The fat knight's downfall and the epi sode of the clothes basket were wittily told. The speaker assured his listeners that they would never gaiuan insight to the beauty of Shakespeare by a mere reading or by skimming about here and there after quotations, but that the plays must be earnestly studied in their relations to each other and to the life of the period in which the poet lived. They are broad enough to take in all ages and all countries. Only by careful, loving study can our imaginations be fired with the poet's lofty ideals of life and duty. The lecture throughout was stimula ting and inspiring, showing a varied learning, a close acquaintance with the mind and art of the master, and clothed withal in the chaste and choice diction that characterizes Dr. Hume's language. The ladies congratulated themselves on being able to set before their guests so rare a feast of reason. At its close the hostess led her company into the dining room, where with her usual graciousness and quiet dignity she dispensed varied delicacies and gracefully did the honors of her hospitable home.

CLOSING EXERCISES Of Gilmer High School and Vance Sem inary Friday Night. f Contributed. On last Friday evening, in Burwell Hall, before a highly cultured and ap preciative audience, the closing exer cises of these most excellent schools elicited round after round of applause from a house so crowded as to show a public interest most flattering to the management of the school and indica tive of the high-standing as educators to which Prof. Gilmer and his able as sistants Miss Colton and Mrs. Gilmer have attained in this community. The programme was rendered throughout in a manner which showed careful and thorough training on the part of the teachers, and a capacity on the part of the students which could only result from continued good discip line and regular application. It would require too much space to give each one his or her full due of praise and encouragement. Suffice it to say that each and all acquitted them selves most creditably. The recitations and orations were excellent, the choruses and solos were good and well-rendered, the patriotic celebration both interesting and in structive, and the farce-comedy with which the entertainment closed dis played to great advantage the histri onic ability of the youthful actors, and threw the audience into paroxysms of laughter. Miss Fannie Burton presiding at the piano added greatly to the pleasure of the occasion. The Gilmer Schools have grown steadily in popularity among our peo ple as their high standards are brought more and more fully to the public no tice and we feel safe in saying that it would be hard to find anywhere three teachers more thoroughly competent and enthusiastically earnest and pains taking in their work than are Prof. Gilmer and his wife, and Miss Colton, who is at the head of the young ladies' department. We may add that both are admired and loved by their pupils in school and out. These schools will be under the same management for another year, and will resume their duties the 31st of August. Their many friends will give Mr. and Mrs. Gilmer and Miss Colton a warm welcome on their return from the summer's vacation. PROGRAMME. Chortjs, Greeting Glee. School. Recitation, "The Christening.
