On Sunday, May 20, the Annual
sermon was preached by Hev. C. E.
Maddry, of Greensboro, X. C. The
preacher took for his text, Esther,
fourth chapter and the last part of
the fourteenth verse: "W no Knowetn
whether thou art come to the King
dom for such a time as this? His
theme was Individual Opportunity
We scarcely evi-r have the privilege
of hearing" as strong a sermon as
was this. The speaker's words were
with power and we believe they will
have lasting mlluences tor goon.

an education of mind, heart, and
body, us would eiialde the student
to go out and become a leader in
his chosen calling, or at least to be
able n compete successfully with
his fellow man in the race of life.
He says that the rtason some men.
nay even most men fail, is not that
thev did not have it in them to suc
ceed, but that they did not have the
chance. The child who is trained
and educated may have no more
mental pow er or ability than the one
w ho has not; the reason he succeeds
above the other is that he had the
chance to develop what was in him
while the other had not. It is the
parent's duty to give his children a
chance, to seud them to the Liberty
Normal College where they will
have a chance, and then the parent
may be assured of their success in
On Tuesday night the program
was varied. Two plays, A Pretty
Piece of Property and Vanity Van
quished were given. The former

the gentlemen actors in the first and
D. A. Neece in the second.
The special feature of this pro
gram was a butterfly drill given by
sixteen young ladies. It was highly
enjoyed. The jantomime "The
Holy City" aad the tableaux were
exceedingly well rendered.

Death, in its sad scenes of be
reavement, has visited the home of
Mr. D. W. Hill again, and taken
from them, the triplets that were left
motherless some nine months ago.
No doubt it is well remembered
that during the latter part of last
summer, triplets were born at his
home, and that after two weeks ill
ness the mother was taken from
their midst leaving the home deso
late and sad, wirh the little ones
still living. They grew nicely
through the loving tender care of
the family's watchfulness and de
votion until recently, when taken
with something like teething and
died very soon, all at nearly the same
time. The little girl, Rosa, was
first to go, and ditd on the 22nd and
buried the 23id. The little boys,
Roland an I Reg. n, both d'ed on
the 24th and were buried in the
same grave with Rosa on the 25th.
Thus they all three now sleep side
by side near the loving mother who
went before them, and all are joined
together in the Paradise above, !
where there is l est evermore.
