Dr. Gibbs Lectitre,
On Saturday night, March 14th
a lare-e audience assembled in Ger
rardfHall to hear Dr. Gibbs,
Rockingham, N. C, deliver his lee
ure on "Our Country."
The speaker first made the poin
that patriotisms love of home and session have been enlarged. Al
country, is an expression ol a uni
versal sentiment of the human
heart. It is found among- those who
arp low in the strata of life as wel
in countries having- the advantag-e
as of modern civilization .
The fact that this sentiment is a
living-, active force is evidenced by
the fact that numerous wars have
been fought in defense of country
and national rights. Ihis passion
is strongest in those countries whic
are the farthest advanced in civil
zation, as a country progresses th
feeling-is deepened. Such a growth
tipressarv for a countrv to ?am
and maintain any degree of great
ness. If the citizens of a country
cease to love it, down fall is inevi
table, such a condition is never
found among- men who stand high in
Hi scale of civilization. Often
this feeling- becomes abnormal, i
turns from a love of country into ;
love of self. When this selfish feel
ing. supplants that of a genuine
national love the country falls
Dr. Gibbs outlined briefly why
we should love, America, showing-
its prowess in commerical, politica
and religious relations.
While we now stand at the cli
max of a world's power, there are
agencies at work among us which,
if tint overcome, will result m our
down fall. . But says Dr. Gibbs,
believe there exists among our peo
pie a patriotism which will steer

' The Summer School.
Two years ago there began a
movement, among some of the edu
catnrs of fhp State, to establish at
Chapel Hill a Summer Normal
The purpose in establishing such
a school was the elevation of the
education of North Carolina. All
branches taught in the primary de
partments were to receive especial
The educators headed by Prof.
Alderman opened in the summer of
1894 the first session of this school.
The newness of the undertaking
prevented this session from being
one hundred and sixty teachers.
The prospects for the coming ses
sion are more promising than ever
before. Arranerements have been
made to have the most proficient ed
ucators of North Carolina, and sev
eral from other States, give courses
Many new courses have been ad
ded and those offered during ; las

could be selected. Prof. Alderman
has been elected Director fo th
School. He has already sent out
cards announcing the courses offer
ed and the instructors. He is also
having prepared a general staement
containing an account of all the ad
We are confident that the equip
ment for the cominy session is far
superior to anything ever offered in
the State, and predict a gratifying
increase in numbers.
The third regular meeting- of th
Shakespere Club, during the Spring-
term, was held in the Chapel Tuesday
Dr.. Hume, the president, prefaced
the meeting with some pertinent re
marks urging that more attention be
paid to the drama as a representation
of real life, and emphasized theberieh

resentating- respectively the narrative
and descriptive treatment of the Epic
and the dramattic treatment by dia-

The pecularities of each style of
treatment were evidenced, and their
differences brought out.
Extracts were then read by the Pres

on Marlowe's "Jew of Malta", com
