The girls are free !
For ten months the pupils of Wil
son Collegiate Institute have worked
faithfully. They have studied assid
ouously. The winding- up was a grand
success. The finale last night was a
magnificent triumph. The young
ladies are glad it is all over. Now
they can take a deserved rest, and
enjoy a w ell earned vacation.
The Advance hopes every pupil
of the school w ill enjoy a pleasant va
cation. The programme for Tuesday night
led off with the Celebrated March
From Iraust (Gounnod) rendered by
Misses N. Harrison, J. Gay, S.

Little Tycoon) by the class, w hich
was heartily applauded.
Era Diovolo, Overture, (C. Czer

Z. Winstead, B. Harris, A. Simpson
and A. Norris, immediately preced
ed an instrumental solo, Last Idea
of Weber, (H. Cramer) exceptionally
well rendered by Miss B. Harris.
Then came the feature of the even
ing, for which the above was the pre
face and for w hich the chapel full of
people were eagerly awaiting, the
address by Walter R. Henry, Esq.,
of Henderson, N. C.
We had heard much of Vance
County's talented son and read more;
yet we w ere not prepared for what
he gave us.
He was introduced by Mr. J. E.
Woodard in a few appropriate;
words, expressing his pleasure in
being able to present such a MAN to
this people. On the rostrum were
seated Judge Spier Whitaker, Drs.
A. Anderson, C. E. Moore, N. An
derson, Col. J. F. Bruton, Rev. II.
W. Battle, Rev. Jno N. Cole,
Messrs. Jacob Battle, W. II. Blount,
F. A. Woodard. G. W. Blount, C. F.
Wilson and Prof. E. L. Middleton.
Mr. Henry's address was in manu
script, which he used freely. But he
was not confined entirely to it. His
theme was woman and it is not say
ing too much to say he did it full and
ample justice. It was a magnificent
panegyric to the worth and influence
of the sex. As an historical produc
tion it was very valuable. He traced
through all the past the course of
woman's influence and deeds. He
showed how they had ruled the
world. Such tremendous research
evidenceel the scholar and patient
student. It ev idence d hours of pain
ful labor. It breathed the smoke of
the mill night lamp. And through it
all there breathed the soul of a
chivalrous, courtly, southern gentle
man, afire with love and esteem and
high regard for man's better half,
God's last and best gift to man. No
synopsis ot Mi. Henry's address can
do it justice. We attempt none. We
are sure we cannot praise' it loo
highly, nor can we grow extravagant
in hearty commendation of it. Mr.
Henry, i first, a brilliant man ; sec
ond, a ripe orator; third, a thoughtful
student ; fourth, a polished, christian
Will his address lo good?
Ye s !
Every man and woman w ho heard
it has a higher conception of the
duty, the responsibility, and the in
fluences of lite. His sentences, spark
ling gems, were gathered up and
stored away in memory's closet. The
address made a profound impression
upon Wilson people-.
Mr. Henry was the recipient of
three handsome boquets of roses
from Wilson ladies, as evidencing
their appreciation of his magnificent
oration. Through some mistake they
w ere not publicly presented.
At the conclusion of the address
Misses A. Moore, B. Harris, S. Gay
and I. Batts rendered an ovcrature,

The report of the President was
meist encouraging. During last ses
sion 104 pupils were enrolled. The
Institute is gradually extending its
field. It is growing. It substantiates
its claim of honest, thorough work.
It has stood the test and fouml to be
the equal of any Female College in
the State. Our people arc gk d to
know n they have such an institution
here. I hey are proud of it. They
congratulate Prof. Warren. The Ad
vance does so most heartily.
Miss Lillie Gay, who supervised
the Concert, and to w hose untiring
labors is due the success attained last
evening, has had charge of the music
department for the past several years.
The cleft skill exhibited by her pupils
reflect much credit upon her. She
may w ell be proud, of them, and they
may feel proud to have had such a
teacher. The next session opens the
first Monday in September.
It was almost a flood. Such a rain
as fell in Wilson and Nash counties
Tuesday night of last week was
never known before. And then all
day Wednesday and Wednesday
night the flood poured down. All
the .streams in this county were flood
ed with water. It rose above the
banks. It took to the fields. It
spread out over corn and cotton
crops with amiable impartiality. The
lands of the just and unjust were
equally covered. Nobody was slight
ed. On the torrents relentless bosom,
turbulently tossed, w recks of bridges,
mill dams, mill houses, plank and rail
fences fitfully floated. About ten
o'clock Thursday morning the bridge
across Contentnea Creek at Wiggins
Mill was floated away. In the mill
house the w ater was three feet deep.
Many Wilson people visited the
scene to .see the water higher at this
point than in the memory ol the old
est inhabitant. Mr. J. T. Wiggins
stood anxiously around watching his
property. The crisis passed, the
house was left standing, and he went
his way rejoicing. Every bridge
across the the stream was impassable
on Saturday and Sunday. Much
damage has been done in Wilson
county. It will cost nearly $2,000 to
repair the damage to the bridges.
The one at Wiggin's mill will cost at
least $1 ,000.
At Rocky Mount on Thursday the
river was three miles wide. Mr. W.
D. Stokes, of Battleboro, told us
that the water was two inches above
the high water mark of iS87,and
that was the highest since 1840. In
30 hours from 6 o'clock Tuesday

Mr. Eli Sasser has a mill in Wayne
county. He had only an ordinary
head of water. After the rain the
pond began to rise. He opened the
gates. It continued to rise. He
knocked out the bulk heads under
the mill house. But iteliel no good.
In twe nty minutes the water had run
over the dam and floated his mill
house down the creek. It was a to

proven itself to be a potent and peculiar
medicine for this disease. Some of these
cures arc really wonderful. If you suffer from
scrofula, be sure to try Hood's Sarsaparilla,
- My daughter Mary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore neck from the tiineshe was 22months
old till she became six years of age. Lump
formed in her neck, and one of them after
growing to the size of a pigeon's egg, liecanie
a running sore for over three years. Wo gave
her Hood's Sarsaparilla, when the lump and
all indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, and now she seems to lie a be-althy
child." J. S. Caeltle, Js'aurlght, X. J.

When a married man buttons his
suspenders on eight-penny nails it is
sure evidence that he has been disap
pointed in love, or in marriage.
If you decide, from what you have
heard or read, that you will take
Hood's Sarsaparilla, do not be induc
ed to buy any substitute instead.
