THIS EVENT BRINGS TO A CLOSE ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL SESSIONS IN THE HISTORY OF THIS FAMOUS INSTITUTION. The thirty-first commencement of Gordon Institute began Sunday morning under happy auspices. The long wished for rain had come and cooled the atmosphere and the gentle winds were still blowing, as the people wended their way to the auditorium of the old institu tion dear not only to the hearts of the people of Barnesville but to thousands of Georgians whose homes are located elsewhere. The services began promptly at 11 o’clock with music by a number of Barnesville’s best singers. Rev. N. B. O’Kelly, who had previously been selected to preach the commencement sermon, was introduced byhis friend and former fellow student, Rev. C. W. Dur den. He read the 14th chapter of Luke and selected the 27th verse for his text, which reads as follows: “And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.” The subject of the sermon was the “Law of Christ/’ or the law of sacrifice. He showed how this principle was necessary for true success in the physical, moral and spiritual world. He pointed to the lives of Lincoln, Garfield, Whitfield, Milton and many others to illustrate the truth of this teach ing. The sermon was a very strong one, addressed especially to the young and it made a splendid im pression and won for the earnest minister many kind expressions. The Sunday evening sermon was also good, quite a number being even better pleased with it than with the morning sermon. It was based on the passage in first John, where Andrew brought his brother to Christ. There was a large audience present and the best attention was given the message throughout. THE SOPHOMORE EXHIBITION. Monday morning the prize con test among the Sophomore readers and speakers took place at 10 o’clock, and the program was quite interesting.

One of the most exciting feu tures of the week was the competi tive company and individual prize drill contest Monday afternoon. It began at 3 o’clock on the cam pas and was witnessed by throngs of home folks and visitors and notwithstanding the contest lasted until 6 o’clock the crowds remain ed anxiously awaiting the results. Captain Frits Jones, of the Macon Huzzars, was the judge and (Continued to Eighth Page.) BARNESVILLE, GA., THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 1902. WATSON TO SPEAK JULY 4TH. Hid WILL MARK A GREAT SPEECH ON THAT OCCASION. A contract has been closed with Hon. Thomas E. Watson to deliv er the fourth of July oration at the Barnesville chautauqua. He was in Barnesville last Friday and a committee had a conference with Mr. Watson, at which time a con tract was closed for the address. The chautauqua directors have made an effort every year to se cure Mr. Watson as an attraction for the chautauqua, but they have been unsuccessful until now. No man in the south is more compe tent to make a stirring speech on this great day and Barnesville promises the public a great cele bration on that occasion. The bands will play, the whistles will blow the cannons will roar and Mr. Watson will make the American Eagle scream on that day 1 It will be a demonstration worth see ing. No doubt there will he thou sands of visitors here to honor Mr. Watson as well as to hear his matchless oration. It will be a great and glorious day. BLUES ELECT OFFICERS. SHI GRAY IS MADE CAPTAIN AND JACKSON IU’HH 2ND. LIEUTENANT. Pursuant to an order from the governor, the Barnesville Blues proceeded to elect a captain Mon day night. The office of captain was made vacant by the resigna tion of Capt. Tliad Adams, who removed from this place to Mont gomery several months ago. They went into an election Mon day night and everything passed off very quietly. Second lieut enant Shi Gray was made captain without opposition and second sergeant Jackson E. Bush was chosen 2nd. lieutenant unanim ously. Several names had been mentioned for captain but Gray was finally settled upon as the man to run. When they have passed their examinations they will receive their commissions from the gov ernor, which will be but a short time. The selection of these two young men for the aboved named offices gives entire satisfaction, not only to the company but to the entire town. Both are well known and have fine records as military men and as citizens. They have been connected with the military of the town for a number of years. Under the di rection of these officers the Blues will continue to maintain its repu tation as being one of the crack companies of Georgia. The First Cotton liloom. Mr. E. R. Carswell, our popular night marshal, brought around to the News-Gazette’s office last Monday morning a full-grown cotton blossom, the firnt we have Been this season. Besides being a vigilant officer, Mr. Carswell has proven himself to be a progressive farmer, and is to be congratulated upon the pro duction of such an early cotton bloom.
