AT THE DICKINSON SCHOOL
Wednesday's Exercises Mart Important
Event in School's life.
Hell Acceptance and flag- liaising-Slng-ularly
in Keeping: With
HE exercises connected
with the formal accept
ance of the school bell
and Hag raising at the
new Dickinson Colored
SLSa. School,Wednesday after
noon, mark an important event in the life
of this institution, long an object of in
terest among visitors and which has re
ceived liberal support from them.
In a new location admirably adapted
to its needs in every way, and with
definite plans for extension of the work
well in hand, the school is sure to play an
important part in the development of the
colored people of the vicinity, and to work
for the "glory of God and the benefit of
man," as Principal Persons so aptly ex
pressed it in his remarks.
The exercises were informal in their
character, but their honest simplicity
made them most impressive, and singu
larly in keeping with the occasion. There
were present many of the Village guests
as well as pupils of the school and their
parents, the cosmopolitan 'company
making an unique picture ; significant of
cooperation in a common purpose and
Principal S. S. Persons presided during
the afternoon, the program opening with
the singing of a hymn. Resident General
Manager T. B. Cotter then spoke brietly
of the school and its work, lie re
ferred to the excellence of the present
location, and said that it was the hope of
those interested in the school to make the
present buildings the nucleus of a num
ber to be devoted to laundry work,
manual training, sewing, cooking, house
keeping, agriculture, etc. A few acres of
land will also be devoted to experimental
farming, trucking, etc.
Mr. Cotter referred kindly to Principal
Persons and his wife, saying that he be
lieved the school was now in the right
hands and working along the right lines.
In closing, he asked for the cordial coop
eration and interest of the Village guests,
explaining that the school was supported
entirely through the subscription of
friends, and its management in the hands
of a board of visitors including : Henry
A. Page, Esq., President of the A. & A.
11. P., Aberdeen, N. C. ; W. J. Adams,
Esq., Attorney at Law, Carthage, N. C. ;
Dr. Chas. F. Meserve, President of the
Shaw University, Paleigh, N. C. ; George
II. Quincy, Esq., Boston, Mass.; Pev.
Dr. E. II. Dickinson, Buffalo, New York ;
and Dr. Geo. S. Hill of Marblehead,
Mass., Pinehurst, N. C.
REV. MR. FOOTE'S REMARKS.
Rev. Henry L. Foote was next called
upon, and addressed his remarks to the
children of the school. ''Study, I know,"
he said, "seems hard, but you must re
member that it is fitting you for. the dv.
ties of life and will be of great help
in later years.
"To illustrate, I will refer to an Irish
man who is employed by me ; a man of
muscle who could actually do much moi
work than I can, but who, when I work
side by side with him, I can out do. Of
strength he has got the most to be suiv,
but he does not work with his brain.
Strength is not the whole thing ; it is
brain work that counts, and this study is
training your brains for this work.
"If you kept your hands tied for a con
siderable length of time, you would find
that they were uselessUse gives strength
to the brain, just as it does to the arm-;
and unless we exercise our brains by
training them in study, we find that they
do very ineffectual work."
PRINCIPAL PERSONS REMARKS.
Principal Persons then spoke brietly :
"We are glad of the opportunity which
has come to us, for we feel that it comes
from generous hearts; from those who
see our condition and need of develop
ment. "There is a great deal in us because it
has not come out, and this is one of the
institutions to bring out what is best. Let
us bury the past and let this work be an
index pointing to the future, and higher
and nobler things.
"In closing, let us thank you for the
opportunity you have placed before us,
and which we hope to use for the glory
of God and the benefit of man."
The singing of "America" closed the
indoor program, the company adjourning
to the school yard to witness the unfurl
ing of the Hag.
THE FLAG RAISING.
Gen. It. II. Hall of Washington, hauled
the colors to the peak as the cornet played
the "Star Spangled Banner," as,- the
company stood with uncovered heads,
and then spoke interestingly upon the
llag, its origin and history.
It is well that you should know, lie
said, something of the flag which is
hereafter to remind you of your duties
as citizens, because in the outline of its
origin and history you will find much to
inspire in you that reverence and affec
tion which should exist in the minds and
hearts of all Americans.
In the first place the stars and stripes
compose one of the oldest flags of the
world. The only nation that has a flag
of a more ancient date is the kingdom of
Denmark, whose flag was established in
the thirteenth century and is the oldest
in existence. You will find on examina
tion that all the prominent countries of
the world, with the exception named,
have adopted their present form of flag
since June 14, 1777, when the stars and
stripes came into being, by act of the
Continental Congress, then assembled in
Continuing Gen. Hall referred to early
achievements under the llag saying that
it was first displayed in battle on land
August, 1777, at Fort . Schuyler, N. Y.,
the colors used having been made of
pieces of red petticoats, white shirts and
a blue cloth.
Its first appearance in battle at sea,
was April 24, 1778, when Captain Paul
Jones, commanding the American sloop-
of-war "Hanger," attacked and captured
