jr •■ T*f*uzamosmmu&ams3ivmm Apples. In the selection of this subject for an essay, the committee on programmes must have sought to cover human experience entire; for the very mention of "apples," carries us back to the period when time was young, and Adam and Eve, in the perfection of youthful Strength and beauty fresh from the hands of the Maker, were set to tend the garden of Eden. True, Holy Writ does not tell us that the fruit which tempted Eve to disobedience was really an apple, only that it was "the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil;" yet so sweet; palatable; and so tempting to all is this fruit that we readily accept the tradi tion handed down from untold ages, and all agree in saying ' Eve ate the apple". If such were the ease, when eating this crisp, tooth- some morsel we cannot help find- ing many excuses for Eve. Ap pies are good, and, if Eve entailed upon us the cause of our disobedi ence, she also gave to all posterity full appreciation of the fruit ...

But then I can, And just as well, too, as if I were a man. Well, to Degin. A year ago now, as all will re- member.

CHAPPELL HILL—THAT IS TO BE. 4 'There is a land of every land tlie pride— Yes, indeed, and that land is Chappell Hill. Surely it is the place of all others that is peculiarly blest. We ourselves are astoun^ ded at the wonderful versatility of talent existing among us. We have the best musicians to be found in the state of Texas, or any other state; the deep thinkers of our town dive so far below the thoughts of others that we would not at any moment be astonished to find them bumping against the inside crest of China; our mathe- maticians can tell in a twinkling of an eye how long it will take a snail to reach the top of a pole if it climb one foot in the day and slip back two at night; we have so many great writers that Solo- mon would say "of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness to the flesh;' we have so many actors and ac- tresses that all Chappell Hill is going to unite itself into a travel- ing theatrical troupe—we begin practicing in a short time, a...

The pins, in lier hands, is ofttimes also a weap- on for ill. How thoroughly a pin will hold the dresses of two "schoolmates together, and how angelically it will bear all the blame upon discovery, leaving her to preserve a "front ofinnocence' unimpaired. As an instrument ot torture, this sturdy little point is quite a favorite with the sterner sex, and is very efficient in their hands at that time. Should some sportive youth upon mischief bent. secure a pin of like disposition, what fttu may ensue, as the destined victim falleth a prey to its sinister machinations, How truly a great poet hath said, "Many ft pin with purpose sent, Finds mark the joker surely meant."

Notwithstanding tho disparity of forces, fickle Fortune smiled upon our inen at Chancellorsville, but their shouts of victory were hushed in mourning, and brave men, and strong, bowed their Iieads and wept, when the sad news flashed down the lines that their much loved "Stonewall" had met his death, through mistake, by one of his own men. Blessed is the fate that prevented that man from knowing he had stabbed the Cause so seriously ! The encounter, at Gettysburg ended many noble lives, and the ranis grew thin, for we had not the world from which to recruit our shattered forces; no, nor^ a small part of it; even mere boys were serving now. When we read of Sherman and iSheriden's raids through our land, a feeling of horror steals over us to find this blot upon the pages of civilized warfare. It might, in truth, be termed a march of deso- lation; churches were demolished and homes lai...

When an obituary is seen one naturally expects to find appen- ded thereto the name of a friend of the deceased, but in this in- stance the obituary is written by the deceased itself. The pleasure of attanding one's own funeral is thus greatly heightened by the op- portunity of doing the preaching. It is usual on such occasions to find a long list of the perfections of the departed, the cause of death, the place of residence, and allelse of interest pertaining to the final dissolution; we therefore will not be accused of the half ...

Thus kindly I scatter The leaves o'er the town, Where thy mates of the "sanctum" Lie floating around. So oon may I follow,, When friendships decay, And from our subscribers' list The names drop away.
