Editor Henry Blount of the Wilson Mirror, a year or two ago stepped upon the lecture platform, and within this remarkably short time he has made a reputation that is little short of the wonderful. Xot confined to the bound- aries of his OAvn State, he has made a tour of many of the western states, and his appearance before his audiences has always scored a success. "Beyond the Alps lies Italy" is the subject of his greatest lecture. He de- i - livered this most remarkable produc tion in Temperance Hall here last Fri day night. A large audience greeted him, eager to hear again the rythm of rhetoric which flows so naturallv lrom his eloquent tongue. The speaker was introduced by W. A. Dunn, Esq., who said that Mr. Blount needed no introduction in Scot- land jeck, ior nis genius nas Deen long , ' & , ana wen Known to our people wirorgn the columns ot his paper The lecturer held his audience for an hour and fifty minutes, now convulsed with laughter, now startled with his dramatic art, and then serious with the beautiful and impressive lessons of real life drawn from his most unique sub ject. it has long been conceded that Hen- ry Blount rivals the writers and speak- ers of his day in the production of the most flowery, and at the same time, the most beautifully connected senten- ces known to the English tongue. His lecture Friday night fully sustained his reputation in this, and when he closed amid loud and prolonged applause.it was tup wnnder of his audience that he had been able, in so short a time, to carry tnem through so many flowery fields, by so many gurgling rills and bubbling fountains, over so many Alps of difficul- ty jnto such fair Italys ol success, As the speaker rounded his last beau- ti f ui sentence, said some most compli- about to step from the platform, Miss m0st beautiful bouquet from Vine Hill remaie Academy. The lecture was given in the interest . , Je and feraaie gCDools, their share of the proceeds to be used in pur- chasing books lor the libraries.

Smith was taken sick with la grippe. About tLe same time he receive! a severe hurt from a fall. He was never well again, only leavijg his house a few times to visit his mother who lived near by. He bore tLe long and severe suffering with remarkable fortitude, and when about a month U-fore his death he w convinced that the carbuncle which had developed on his back would prob ably prove fatal, he submitted with great resignation. Although not a communicant of any church, durirg his severe sufferings he frequently re quested that bia friends pray for him, took delight in hearing the Bible read, and some time before his death he asked the privilege to partake of the sacrament of the Lord' eumr and ,a ii thus died m the bope ot a blessed im mortality.
