The Last Night of Commencement.
The saying of Sam Jones that an
admission fee thins out the crowd is
not always true, for a fine audience
gathered in the chapel last night
to bear the closing exercises of South
Georgia college. Evsn the rain and
clouds could not keep the eager peo
The opening number by Prof. Wen
zel, was given in an artistic way that
showed him a thorough knowledge of
the divine art of music. The quar
tette “Old Black Joe,” by Messrs,
Burr, Stark, Linn and Smith was so
good that it received an encore.
The next number, the song by Miss
India Hunter, was a gem and was so
thoroughly enjoyed that it received
an encore which brought out another
charming song, as thoroughly appre
ciated as the first.
Another quartette by Mess. Burr,
Smith, Linn ami Stark, “Way down
upon the Suwannee River,” was re
ceived witli rapturous japplausc.
Following this came another song
by Miss Hunter, “The Cows are in
the Clover,” which reccivcn another
encore. The fair singer came before
the ncdicncc and bowed her thanks.
THE AWARD OF THE MEDAI.S.
The award of the Medals to the
best declainter and best debater was
made by a committee who undertook
the delicate task at the request of
President Lovejoy. Here is the re
G. M. Lovejoy, President S. G.
We, the undersigned judges of the
contests for the medals to ho presented
to the best debater and declaimer at
the annual commencement of your in
stitution, are unanimous in our opin
ion that Mr. J. L. Roberts is entitled
to the medal for the best debater, and
Mr. Jamison S. Roberts to the one of
fered for the best declaimer.
We desire to make honorable men
tion of Mr. R. G. Mitchell, Jr., for
his graceful and meritorious efforts as
a declaimer. Mr. C. W. Holloway
also deserves honorable mention for the
inimitable originality he displayed as
debater. In compliance with the re
quest of many of those who were
present, we respectfully ask Mr. J. L.
Roberts to furuish the Times-E.vter-.

a handsome gold pen, to the best stu
dent in mathematics in the higher
class was nwnrdcd to Miss Irene Davis,
and was also delivered by Mr. Jones.
The awards as made by the com
mittee are in thorough syrapaty with
the opinions of those that heard the
declamations and debates.
The Times-Enterprise will gladly
publish the speech of Mr. Roberts.
It was a gem of wit and eloquence
and while in cold type it will lack the
magnetism lent itiby the inspiration of
the graceful orator, it will be splendid

Jury” was splendidly rendered and

W. W. Linn made a model judge
and the happy termination to tnc
breach of promise suit inaugurated by
him is a pointer to judicial officers in
such cases. Miss Rosa Neel made a.
splendid Plaintiff in the ease, and her
tearful sorrow at the perfidity of her
lover, Mr. Alex -Smith, himself an
excellent Jcharactcr, excited the sym
pathy of the hearers.
S. J. Cassels, Jr., made a fine court
officer, and John Stark, as counsel
for the interesting plaintiff, had an
excellent conception of his part.
The jury performed their duty well,
though if the truth were known, they
were not without bias, as between the
plaintiff and the defendant.
The bridesmaids looked lovely, as
they always do, and while we arc not
blessed with prophetic ken wo wager

Mayor Hopkins gives notice this
morning that a meeting ol' the citizens
of the city will he held in the city
hall this evening at 8 o’clock, to dis
cuss the railroad plans given in yes

Thomasvillc will turn out and the
road will he built. Come out to the
meeting and bring your friends.
The most learned advocate in the
world could not say more tor the pro
posed railroad than is already known.
Every business man in town realizes
the benefits that will come with a new
outlet. The soundest business men
of the community are identified with
the project, have put their money
into it, and will he in control. They
have put their money into it and will
give it their time and attention, be
cause it will pay, and because it will
help Thomasville. These reasons
ought to be sufficient to induce every
citizen to conic into the eompauy, on
the ground floor.
The new railroad will give our be
loved city such Tin impetus forward as
she has never known.
We speak confidently because we
feel jubilantj over the prospect. In
less than a twelve month we expect to
hear the cry: “All aboard for C'or-
dele and the points north.” In the
meantime all aboard for the meeting
The reporter, in the hu r ry of get
ting up an account of the concert at
the South Georgia College chapel,
night before last, omitted to mention
an instrumental piece: “Ye hanks and
Braes O’Bonnic Doon,” executed in
splendid style, by Miss Annie Hurst.
An exquisitely rendered duet, by
Misses Bifilic and Pet Woodson, was
also omitted. Getting up an account
of the kind at one or two o’clock in
the morning and reading the proof by
the early dawn is calculated to rattle
a reporter somewhat.

The Thomasville Guards turned out
yesterday afternoon for the first time
in their uniforms. The ranks were
full, and as they marched up Broad
street to the soutid of the drum, many
compliments were paid to the soldierly
bearing of the hoys. The step was in
perfect time arid the flank movements
were good. The uniforms are very
handsome, and the wearers are worthy
Sheriff Hurst jailed three negroes

Mr. E. W. Marsh, Jr., died this
morning at 4 o’clock at his father’s
residence, on Washington street. lie
had been ill for a long time with con
sumption and a few months ago visit
ed Thomasvillc, Ga., with the hope
that the change ol climate might check
the progress of disease. He grew
worse, and returned home a few weeks
ago to die. Day by day he grew
weaker, and this morning, just as the
light of another day was breaking, his
soul passed from earth peacefully and
calmly, as a child lies down to sleep.—

The type made us attach Jr. to the
name of Mr. S. I,. Hayes yesterday
morning. His friends know that lie is
still a young man and maybe the cold
and unsympathetic type wished to re
turn him to primeval youth.

division of the Mercer Baptist Asso
