measure of entertainment and j
pleasure ot the evening, Prof. John j

with a crowd of Pineville pupils
gave an exhibition in recitations,
essays, songs and choruses.
For the very cold evening the
crowd was surprisingly large much
larger than was expected bv the!
At 8 o'clock the curtain rose upon

was a beautiful cantafa, representing
in song the wa'er nymphs, all of
whom appeared in nile green gowns.
The decorations were very tastety
and put all in good elfrct. Con

young woman, well dressed and of
prepossessing appearance, entered
the Racket store and called for Mr.
John DeLane, a clerk in the estab

department, and when Mr, DeLane

jerked :i cowhide from the wrapper
the held in her humid, and dealt the
young man several brisk blows over
the head before ho could retreat.
The woman with the cowhide then
left the store.
The assailant of Mr. DeLine was
Miss May Ilirt, a native of South
Carolina. Mr. DeLane had been
engaged to her, but had broken the
engagement. He met her seven
year3 ago in Charleston, S. C, when
he was clerk there in a branch store
of Mr. W J Day is, and it was a c-ee

after she arrived here, Mr. DeLane
broke his engagement wi'Ji her. She
then consulted lawyers with a view
of bringing a suit of breach of
promise against DeLane, all of which
was s t forth m the News af. the
time. Things quieted down then
for a time, but it appears that the
matter between Miss Ilirt and Mr.
DeLane had rot been adjusted al
together, at least not to the satisfac
tion of Miss Ilirt.
The immediate cause of tie
trouble today was an anonymous
letter of an insulting natuie that
Miss Ilirt received, and which she
claims, DeLane wrote her. DeLane
deni.s that he either wrote the letter
or knew anything of it. A News re
porter was i. at to Mi -3 Hirt's home.

mother detailed the story of her

Mr. DeLane positively says that
he did not write the letter that ex
cited Miss Dirt's ire. Mis3 lira's

show the letter. Miss Hirt says it
is too indecent for publication.
