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 well earned vacation.
The Advance hopes every pupil
of the school will enjoy a pleasant va
cation. The programme for Tuesday night
led off with the Celebrated March
From Faust (Gounnod) rendered by
Misses N. Harrison, J. Gay, S.
Blount and I. Deans. This was fol
lowed by a chorus "On the Sea"
(Little Tycoon) by the class, which
was heartily applauded.
Fra Diovolo, Overture, (C. Czer
ny) by Misses I. Warren, A. Moore,
Z. Winstead, B. Harris, A. Simpson
and A. Norris, immediately preced
ed an iustrumental 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 which 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 were 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. Brutdn, Rev. H.
W. Battle, Rev. Jno N. Cole,
Messrs. Jacob Battle, W. H. 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
evidenced the scholar and patient
student. It evidenced hours of pain
ful labor. It breathed the smoke of
the mid night lamp. And through it
all there breathed the soul of a
chivalrous, courtly, southern gentle
man, afire with love arid esteem and
high regard for man's better half,
God's last and best gilt to man. No
synopsis of Mr. Henry's address can
do it justice. We attempt none. We
are sure we cannot praise it too
highly, nor can we grow extravagant
in hearty commendation of it. Mr.
Henry, ia first, a brilliant man ; sec
ond, a ripe orator; third, a thoughtful
siuoeni ; iounm, a ponsneo. cnnstian
tlic btate. Uur people are glad to
known they have such an institution
here. They are proud of it. They
congratulate Prof. Warren. The Ad
vance does so most heartily.
Miss Lillie Gay, who supervised
the Concert, and to whose untiring
labors is due the success attained last
evening, has had charge of the music
department for the past several years.
The deft skill exhibited by her pupils
reflect much credit upon her. She
may well be proud, of them, and they
may feel proud to have had such a
teacher. The next session opens the
first Monday in September.
The Freshet.
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 relendess bosom,
turbulently tossed, wrecks 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 water was three feet deep.
Many Wilson people visited the
scene to see the water hieher 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 1887, and
that was the highest since 1840. In
30 hours from 6 o'clock Tuesday
evening of last week the river rose 1 5
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 it did no good.
In twenty minutes the water had ' run
over the dam and floated his mill
house down the creek. It was a to
tal wreck.
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.

Will his address do srood ?
Every man and woman who heard
it has a higher conception of the
duty, the responsibility, and the in
fluences of life. His sentences, spark
ling gems, were gathered up and
stored aw ay 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
were not publicly presented.
At the conclusion of the address
Misses A. Moore, B. Harris, S. Gay
and I. Batts rendered an overature.

Last night at an early hour every

It Is that impurity in the blood, which, ac
cumulating in the glands of the neck, pro
duces unsightly lumps or swellings; which
causes painful running sores on the arms,
legs, or feet; which developes ulcers in the
eyes, ears, or nose, often causing blinduess or
deafness; which is the origin of pimples, can
cerous growths, or the many other manifesta
tions usually ascribed to " humors; " which,
fastening uion the lungs, causes consumption
and death. Being the most ancient, It is the
most general of all diseases or affections, for
very few persons are entirely free from IU.
HrBcr cured
By taking Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, by
the remarkable cures it has accomplished
often when other medicines have failed, has
proven itself to be a potent and peculiar
medicine for this disease. Some of these
cures are really wonderful. If you suffer from
scrofula, be sure to try Hood's Sarsaparilla.
My daughterMary was afflicted with scrof
ulous sore neck from the time she was 22 months
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, became
a running sore for over three years. Wo gave
ner Hood's Sarsaparilla, when the lump and
all indications of scrofula entirely dis
appeared, and now she seems to be a healthy
child." J. S. Cakltle, Nauright, N. J.
