Our Chapel Hill Letter.
Special correspondence to The Times. Chapkl Hill, N. C. March 2nd, 1896. Monday evening a club was formed for the purpose of studying psycholo gical and philosophical problems and to be called the University Philo sophical Society. Dr. Williams, who is at the head of the department of Philosophy, was called to the chair. The constitution was drawn up and adopted. Mr. Herman Harrel Home was elected President, Mr. J. W. Canada, Vice President, Mr. Jno. Moore, Secretary and Treasurer. The Society will meet the first Tuesday evening in each month. The Philological club held its regu lar monthly meeting Feb. 25th. The Anglo-Saxon and versions of The Story of Apollonius was presented by Dr. Hume. Nates and Naevius in the story of Lycurgus were read by Prof. Harrington. Prof. Wills pre sented some very interesting notes on the use of "shall" and "will". He traced the etymology of the words from the beginning, showing their use at first as principal verbs fol lowed by the infinitive, and later their use as auxiliaries. In the dis cussion that followed Dr. Ball Hhowed that North Carolinians speak purer English than the people of many other States. That this is because North Carolina is not affected by constant iiuiuigi-iUou. xne lonign element in Freytags vocabulary was explained by Prof. Toy. "The Little Rebel" was repeated Friday evening by special request. Several came from Durham to witness the performance. Rev. Thomas Dixon lectured on the interesting subject "Backbone" on Wednesday evening in the University chapel before a large audience. The prospects for the base ball team thi year are good. Ca.pt. Stan ley is hard at work. Regular prac tice has begun and these practice games are sometimes very exciting. The batting this year is much better than heretofore, and this is the main requirement to make the team. About thirty men are playing to get on, and among these much good material can be found. Many new students show that they "know how to play ball," and will make some of the old men hustle. With Stephens who hasn't an equal in the South, in the box we are sure that the 'Varsity will lead. The Track Athletic Team is at work. The track is being made, and will soon be in fine condition. It is ex pected that there will be an Inter Collegiate Field Day in April in which all the neighboring colleges will be invited to join. Prizes will be given for running, jumping, and many oth er feats. The Tennis Association is trying to get the Inter-collegiate Tournament to come off on the same day. sore throat and could not do his or himself justice. , , The hall was beautifully decorated, being draped in white and. pink, the society colors, while just above the speakers were the letters P. L. S., monogramed in electric lights. Just as the President welcomed the audi ence in the name of the society Chief Marshal Harriss turned on these lights. The effect was beautiful. A. & M. Collkge, Raleigh, N. C. Feb. 28th, 1896. Last evening we had the pleasure of attending the annual oratorical contest of the Pullen Literary Socie ty which was held in its hall at the Agricultural & Mechanical College This entertainment was a perfect success, the programme being carried otit without a hitch. Considering the inclemency of the weather, a very large audience was in attendance. , The programme was : Opening Address, Pres. H. L. Williams. A. H. OliverT Education is an Affair not of v T. 0. Joyner. MUSIC. "The True Goal of Ambition." John Howard "The Claim That North Carolina Has Upon Her Young Men." v , .,' J. L,' Knight. Judges retire. MUSIC. Award of Medals. Closing Address by President. MUSIC. . Mr. Rhinehart was secretary of the occasion. The Marshals were, C D. Harris, Chief; Joe Tull, Lee Watson, Jas. Sinclair, Manly Baker. " The Judges were Rev.' W, C. Nor man, Prof. Logan Howell, Dr. H. B. Battle. They decided that the medal should be awarded to Mf. Jno. Howard, of Tarboro. All of the speeches were excellent, Mr. Knight was suffering from Louis W. Herring died at his home in Duplin county on Saturday even ing, the 22nd of February last. He was the fifth son and sixth child in a family of ten, the eldest of which is sixty and the youngest thirty-five. His death is the first break in the family chain, and com ing as it did, suddenly, with no rela tive by to minister to his wants, the surprise and shock were appalling. It was hard to credit the telegram that brought the Rrievous news. That a man in the prime of life, with out a symptom of disease, should die without warning seemed so unlikely, as to cause the dark shadow of sus picion to loom over the scene ; but after learning the facts, it became plain that he died from heart failure brought on by exposure to cold. He attended Duplin Court during the snow, and coming home Friday night he told his housekeeper that he had not been warm since leaving home. L. Sivluid.. llO C'.'.iUij.UilllU Ol ot pression about his chest and said his heart beat irregularly. This was at tributed to an attack of indigestion for which he took some simple rem edy, and was in the act of bathing his chest in warm water when he fell back and expired. His death was sudden ; so sudden and startling thact when the intelli gence first reached his neighbors and relatives it was hardly credited. It was a surprise to all. and I may say truly, that none who knew him heard it confirmed without a pang of sor row. He had his faults, as who of us has not? But whatsoever may be recorded against him in the great book of God's remembrance, there will also be entered many an act of kindness, many a generous deed, many a work of charity, many a to ken of pure friendship. He was called close, a lover of money and by some, "Stingy Louis Herring" but no one can accuse him of oppressing the poor, of robbing widows and orphans, or of being dis honest. , He made his money by work and saved it by a careful economy. He was a farmer, and added to the world's products. His ambition was to have the finest farm in Duplin county. He was not for show, but retility he wanted the farm to pay. His work was hardly half done. A few more years and his plantation would have been one of the finest cotton farms in Eastern Carolina. He joined the army in 1864, being then only seventeen years old, and served in the company of Captain C. Barnes, of Wilson, until the surren der. He was never married. His depend ants, of which he had a goodly num ber, feel his loss more than any others save his brothers and sisters. He died in the forty-ninth year of hin ago Mid was, buried by the side ol hiu mother at Faison. "There is no terrer, Caesius, in your threats ; For I am armed so strong in honesty, That they pass by me, as an idle wind, Which I respect not." N. B. H. Mr Hid CAM.' t - If. DAY FLOPS. Letter to the News & Observer. ToThk Editors I was inWash ington a few days ago; and at the same time Capt$lk!Peebles and Mr. Ed. Chambers Smith were in the city. I was not present at the conference looking to "saving the State," or for any other purpose. My mission was to serve a friend. "Only this and nothing more." I regard the iBsue in North Caro lina as a fight between the Populist and Republican parties. Or, if you prefer, between sound money and inflation. Between the, vagaries of unrestf ul political dreams snd conser vatism. If it can be of the least In terest to the public what my political nnnrtnut, will be under these circum stances. I most unhesitatingly say, I shall vote the National Republican ticket in '96. Very truly, , - " W. H DAt. . Halifal, N. C, Feb. 26, i896. - Q E. MOORE, Physician and Surgeon, Wilson, N. C. . W.
