Before you start on a journey go to the
Muskogee drug store and procure a bottle of

Our president started to St. Louis Tuesday.
Miss Lizzie Campbell is on the sick list
Revs. M, L. Butler ami A. C. Pickens
visited the institute this week.
Mrs. LaFlore, of Limestone Gap, visited
her daughters, Misses Chicki, Chockie and
Daisy this week.
Bro. W. B. Austin is visiting Ilarrell and
reports his daughter Einma, afornicr student
of H. I. I., convalescing after a severe ill-
ness of typhoid fever.
Wonder why Mr. Bill Dick rushed off in
such a hurry the other evening after the en-
tertainment, not even waiting for the first
"dang." Was it a lesson learned in the
Friday night, the 3rd, was the close of
five days of cloudy, often rainy weather.
The ground was inches deep in mud, or
inches under water. What other than the
fair young faces and happy voices of a hun-
dred girls and boys could bring the people
of Muskogee from their homes on silch a
night, and what obstacle could keep them
away when such attractions were drawing
them to Harrell Institute?
By eight o'clock we began, as usual, t)
wish the Chapel twice as large, for our hos-
pitable feelings were wounded by the im-
possibility of finding comfortable seats for
the many friends who kept on coming after
all the room was occupied.
The exercises opened by prayer, led by
Rev. Mr. Yarbrough and a song, "Raise me
Jesus," by the school, or as many of the
pupils as could find standing room on the
A little address of welcome by a little boy,
who was modest enough to be very glad
when his part of the performance was com-
An Instrumental Duett, by Misses Chick-
asaw and Daisy La Flore, having intervened,
Miss Norma Rasmus told in poetical strains
of a hero who with his own axe cut off his
two legs (wooden legs) when one was crush-
ed by a falling tree.
Little Bessie Brewer in baby voice, but
the ease and simplicity of entire self-forget-
fulness, drew from the audience the applause
always ready for the recitation of the tiniest
bit of rhyme by such a dot.
Our youngest music pupils, Misses Josie
Walker and Annie Severs, next gave us a
duett that showed, at least to those of us un-
iniated into the musical art, no break or
"Was the Man Killed," a newspaper item
which told only how the unfortunate lost
cerebum and cerebellum and part of the
dura mater, leaving the worthy old couple
under whose notice it had fallen, in a state
of harrowing suspense as to his fate; was
recited by Miss Rachel Mayes.
Now, Willie Martin, just six years old,
essayed a speech, giving his matured opin-
ions concerning the feelings a little boy
should cherish toward his baby sister, and
the treatment she is entitled to receive at his
hands. He made his point, but none too
soon, for under so many, even tho' kindly
eyes, his courage was slowly oozing out,
when the last line restored him to private
life and happiness.
"The Larboard Watch," a vocal duett, by
Misses Belle Bray and Daisy La Flore, was
very sweet to our ears, and brought loud
applause from appreciative hearers.
"Sam's Letter," was lisped and stuttered
forth by Miss Mattie Dorsey, but the young
lady did not seem embarrassed, nor did her
hearers deem it rude to laugh heartily at
Sam's efforts at a soliloquy.
Now a little fairy, with eyes of blue and
lily face set in flowing waves of blondest
hair, genuinely lisped out a colloquy between
a robin and a chick; ending on the part of
each in the conviction that the other was a
queer sort of bird.
An instrumental duett, by Misses Belle
Bray and Louisa Blackstone, was a pleasaat
prelude to "Entertaining Sister's Beau," by
Mattie • Martin. Talk of self-possession
The little lady was surely for the time being
the veritable little one who employed the
time while sister was getting ready in ma-
king such disastrous revelations to the wait-
ing visitor. >
Were we tired of music? No, for thi
time it was Misses Fannie Locke and Lizzie
Moore who played a duett, quite short
enough for its quality and even left us ready
for the German reading and song by the
boys and girls of the German class.
Then "Oh! the boys, with their terrible
noise," by Florence Severs, who condoled
with the mothers that must endure it now
and later regret that they cannot hear it, for
the boys are gone and only these great men
are left to call them mother, while some per-
haps went "over the river" to a better home
Miss Florence McSpaddin now set forth
in emphatic language the injury done to the
noble science of grammar by the ill-chosen
verb, To Love, when falling from the lips of
his young daughter upon the ears of the ol
farmer, who in the capacity of Director,
called to see what the young pedagogue was
teaching to the children. Alas for M.c 11 -
suit! young men who tench grammir m: i
Here the President of the Institute, who
had been deputed by Mis* Simpson, mistress
of the music department, to make apologies,
(xplanations of shortcomings, &c., played
traitor, and told the company that having
with them heard the performance for the lirst
time, his verdict was that no apology was
needed, so he would instead express his
pleasure at seeing them, and his earnest de-
sire that they would show their interest in
our work by more frequent visits to Harrell
We now had an instrumental trio, by
Misses Choctaw Le Flore, Norma Rasmus
and Florence McSpaddin, alter which the
Rev. Mr. Bryce pronounced the benediction
and so closed the most pleasant entertain-
ment that the school has enjoyed during this
Bucklen's Arnica b&lve.

The Child Recovered—My little girl,
aged seven years, was afflicted with a se-
vere cough and cold. She could not sleep
but coughed almost incessantly. I was in-
duced by a friend to try Cndmberlain's
Cough Remedy and was astonished at the
immediate relief it gave her and the cure it
produced. 1 would not be without it in the
house for any price. 1 have tried many
remedies for coughs and colds, but this is
superior to anything 1 have ever tried. Prof.
