Undoubtly, ' the best *term known in the hiilory of Farm ville Graded Schools closed to day. The exercises began Wed nesday night with a well gotten up and splendidly rendered pro gram by the primary grades. The opera house, in which the ? exer cises took place, was packed with interested onlookers Who atteilcd their enjoyment by fre quent applause. The little ones ?hmv?t hy ihpir BplonHifl ni^tinn that nothing had been left un done towards their training. Thursday, night the music class rendered a few selections after which the commencement address was delivered by Hon. I. H. Small, Congressman of this diAridt. Conscious of our inabil ity, to do the subject justice, we shall not endeavor to give a sy nopsis of the address. The people of Farmville and surrounding community are juftly proud of our school and sp'.ecdid showing made. The corps of teachers, who have la bored so zealously' for the good of boys and girls have the grate Thore. seem to be quite o jealousy am6ng some business men, a disposition to try to brenk down tbeir adversary in order to build themselves up on their opponent's down fall. This petty feclins: among rivals in business is all wrong. The best way to bi'ihl up a town is to stand by every man in the place, that docs right. Whenever a man is doing well do not tear him down. All residents should be as partners, not opponents. In all livelihoods the mora business your rival does the more you will do. Every business man who treats his customer* honestly courteously and fairly will get his share, and the more business that can be secured by united efforts, the better it will bq fgr all. a town cea$e*to?row it begins to die, and the people try toVJtfU:*j?ctf < business, the more- readly v utter ruin come to all. >S^ond to gether for the advancement of every citizen.

A11 the members met in their Lodge room at 10.30 A. M. and marched in a body to the Christian church, wearing their regalia, where the paster. Rev. C. B. Mashburn, delivered an able sermon. For a time it was the idea of the Committee to have some visitor to deliver .the address, and the local Minister was not notified that the lot would fall on him until Thursday of last week. However he preached one-of the greatest sermons that we have ever heard, and those tliul failed to attend the seivice at. the Christian Church last Suu day, missed a treat. l^The Meat Lodge nt Farmville, Smite only a liitle more than two years old, is doing a great work, ?nd is recognized as one of the strongest Lodges in the District. They have a quantity of degree work now pending, and by the close of the year the membership will be increased considerable. A GOOD TOWN. ? Here are some words from Edward K. Graham in Harper's Weekly that are in such good accord with the doctriss of city building advanced by this .iSs1 i or the richest town,?0 thai ! people at the top can have iugh money to stop work. Vdo ask for wisdom enough to know what the permanent and progressively good things to work for are, the civic will to work for them and the material prosperity to put wheels under them to make them go. "What we have learned is that it is wise to work together for a good place to live, a place both to make a good living add to live 0 good life? good money, good water, good streets, good schools, good churches. A good place to liy- is a place to invest money and get bigger returns, and to in vest life and get bigger returns 1 'Whatever promotes the mate rial welfare of the larger number of p-uple is an essential of gccd jsevernmeut as it is of good relig ion. Good [citizenship is not a ?f'.erce struggle in our business to take all the other fellow has and then endow a school and church for him to go to tor consolation. Big men in business are more and more coming to discover the |y|lueof profit sharing and co operation between all factors, even in business itself; and for tunate will be that community which extendsJo every detail of iits economic life that same doc trine of fraternal co-operation which* gave us Deomcratic government and the Christian religion." With the city, as with the inSfaridtad there can be' oo prosperity worth while that 'is not based on order, equity and a sincere devotion to the common good. A good town implies a town that is rounded out equally In all desirable phas - . In Chicago one of the head of a mail order house has confessed that he has income of $1,320,000 a year, and yet he is supposed to be at head of an institution which is' working and soiling goods for the benefit of the poor man who has thought and been made to believe he has been S& (^?edbyJwa local merchant. - * Catarrh Cannot Be Cured* with IJOCKIj APPLICATIONS, u they cannot reach the seat of the ttmie.
