HUNDREDS OF ARTICLES MADE. BY BOYS AND GIRLS SHOWN WEDNESDAY. FILLED FIVE WHOLE ROOMS Work of Manual Arts, Domestic Sci ence, Commercial and Agricultural Departments of County High School Exhibited to the Public. Five whole rooms of the Central High School were filled Wednesday afternoon with the exhibits of the ' manual arts, domestic science, com mercial and agricultural departments of the school. They were viewed and admired by hundreds of interested friends and patrons of the school. The exhibits were little short of a revelation to those who were not ac quainted with the work that is done by the pupils of the city and county in these, departments. Many thought that the boys and girls were simply taught reading and writing and arith metic. But behold, in one room, there was the daintiest handiwork of every kind, made by the skilled and train ed hands of the girls of the school. In another room, there was shown cakes and pies and preserves and strawberry shortcake, doughnuts and crullers, cookies and biscuit, all made by the girls in the domestic science department. Many a housewife look ed enviously at them Wednesday aft ernoon when they saw them, and won dered that mere school girls could work such wonders in the culinary ine. In three other rooms still was shown the work of the pupils in the manual arts department, work that had been done under the direction of Mr. Duke and Miss Smith. There were hundreds of dainty pieces of work, pieces of linen, drawings, books skillfully bound, tabarets, lawn swings, benches, chairs, other arti cles too numerous to mention. .Only the naked eye could appreciate the skill and care with which the work was done. The pupils of Prof. Galloway had another whole room full of their work. There were shown analyses of soil, exhibits of farm machinery, and other things of interest to the boys who come from the farm. The exhibit of the commercial de partment was also very interesting. Prof. Harris showed several speci mens of the typewriting, shorthand work, and book-keeping done by the boys and girls. The variety and the quantity of the display was so great that it is not within the range of a short article to describe it. Sufficient to say, it was even larger and better than a year ago.

MISSJHETTIE JANE DUNAWAY CHARMED AUDIENCE WITH HER READINGS. fREDERICK WAROE TONIGHT Great Shakespearean Actor and Dram atist Will Give De'ightful Program. Belah Buck Quartet Will Give a Musical Prelude Friday Music Day (Thursday's Daily.) Those Columbia folk who failed to see and hear Miss Hettie Jane Duna way Wednesday night in her costumed presentation of "Just Plain Judy" missed one of the rare treats of Chau tauqua week. Miss Dunaway's presentation of this adaptation from "Daddy Long Legs," which has made such a hit in New York during the past season, was as admirable as the story itself is charming. She thoroughly charmed and delighted the large crowd which heard her. Both young and old came under the spell of her bewitching per sonality and her perfect art. A little girl in the audience ex pressed it very well when she said to her mother, "I could listen to her all night." A staid, sober business man, who was sitting nearby, concurred in the judgment of the little girl. Said he, "I have gotten the value of my whole season ticket in just hearing Miss Dunaway tonight." Miss Dunaway is a rare entertainer. She has exceptional ability as a read er. Above all, she has that which is so necessary in any platform perform er, personal magnetism. Wednesday evening she 6wayed her audience at will. One moment she had them bursting their sides almost with laughter, a moment later, when she leaped into the pathetic and philoso phized upon the lot of an orphan in an asylum, she had many on the verge of tears. Previous to the performance of Miss Dunaway, the American Ladies' Orchestra gave a delightful musical program of several numbers, which was thoroughly enjoyed. Today and tonight there will be an other program of rare merit. This evening after a musical prelude by the Beulah Buck Quartet, a splendid musical organization, Frederick Warde, the great Shakespearean stu dent and actor, will give a perform ance that will last an hour or more Friday will be "Music ' Day." This is a day that the people cannot afford to miss. In the morning there will 'be an address by the platform lectur er, Prof. Charles Lane, of the Univer sity of Georgia, while in the after noon at three o'clock there will be a grand concert by the New York Ma rine Band and Madame Grace Hall Riheldaffer. In the evening at 8 o'clock, there will be another enter tainment by the same performers, Miss Riheldaffer singing a number of arias from the grand operas. Fresh car of Chattanooga White Lime just received. Also a big car of Portland Cement. Street, Martin & Vaughan Co. It SALMON WELCOMED THE CHAUTAUQUA PROMINENT MEMBER OF THE BAR EXTENDED GREETINGS. WEDNESDAY EVENING. Previous to the rendition of the program Wednesday evening, Hon. W. C. Salmon, of the local bar, on be half of the people of Columbia and her educational Interests, extended a cordial welcome to the Chautauqua guests, who will be here this week, and assured them of the interest of the people of this city in their com ing and of their appreciation of the high character of performances that they will give.

GREAT HERD OF BEREFURDS Visit to Only One of the Pure Bred White Faces in the County Proves to Be Most Enjoyable Beauty and Profit Combined. (Thursday's Daily.) Some, one in order to avoid contro versy, we will not say who, has said: "If a man write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mouse trap than his neighbor, though he build his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door."

GREAT METEOR IS SEEN BY NUMBER HUGE CELESTIAL BODY FELL NEAR CITY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AT 10 O'CLOCK. A huge meteor, casting a light that could be seen for miles, fell some where in the southern portion of the eunty Wednesday night about tea o'clock. The great celestial body seemed to be many feet long, and just befor reaching the earth seemed to split 'into a thousand pieces, making a memorable impression upon the minds of those who were fortunate enough to see It. Many were under the impression at first that a German torpedo or aer oplane was scouting this section, and was getting ready to descend upon us, bringing death and destruction. The light was so bright that it seem- ed that a thousand search lights had I been turned upon the Inhabitants of ! the county. j It was impossible to locate this j morning where the meteor fell. One man thought that it fell near the edge of the city, another out about 1 the Halladay farm, while still another gentleman gave It as his opinion that it struck the earth about the Maury aad Giles county line.
