A noisy ('?) altercation occurred this
week at Sweet Home between two
deaf mutes, in which the sign lan
guage was carried a little too far for
the safety and comfort of one of the
combatants. The parties were given
hearing before Justice W'atkins, who
sent Mr. Krope to j.iil to await the
action of the grand jury. Mr. Krokc
gave ball and was released on Wednes
day. A g!d deal of Interest Is manifested
in the revival services now in progress
at the M. K. and V. P. churches. The
Hon. John H. Finch said in speaking

by the teachers' iusliiiue, then ns-cin-bb

by a recitation by Mws Lillian Bruce;
entitled "Mono's Vat rs," which w;,s j
rendered with much feelirg and hie'
dramatic effect. No higher compli
ment colli. 1 have bet n paid to lie
young lady than the perfect silence
oliserveil by the h-.rge aiidi.'iiee. "S inj.
Low, Sweet Chariot," by the select
choir, was next on the progmni. Mrs.

Studies l-;iH-ution'' in a manner that
marked her as n fine elocutionist. A
song that reached m v In art was then
sung by Miss Grace Itiley in a manner
that brought down tli. house and for
liieh site received many compliments.
I'rof. Bronse.n, piesideitt of MeMinii
ville Cllegc, was then inti-iMhiced and
delivered a lecture on the work of
school teachers. He dwelt upon the
influence of teachers in tin' social and
political world and the great possibili
ties of their profession, end as rtrotiglv
condemned the too common practice
of men and women in all pt-of-ssiou..
who take up their work when the
should ho attending school. He dwelt
at some length upon the qualification,
both natural and acquired, for n sue-
ce-sltil teaclier, and gave, ntil' li vain- i
able iuforuuition on the details of'
school management. To those al.otit j
to adopt the profession, his advice will
prove particularly valuable. Afler the j
loctuie another piece of music was j
given by the choir. Prof, tiartand j
then took the fi-or and made a few j
well-chosen remarks. He was fob j
lowed by Profs Baib-y and Micheucr, j
and others. A m cling of the teachers j
to lake place at the school house Sa'- j
urdav alt cmooii was onnotmeeil and a
very iHteresting program was givin
out. The choir sang "Home, Swell

audience, who did not seem to realise i
that the entertainment was over.
