hart, Julia Williams and Mary Tar-
rant are doing good service and
the several sections are acquitting
themselves with much credit
Our Music Hall is yet on wheels,
but the contractor promises to
have it in position and ready for
use within a very few days. We
are impatiently biding* our time, for
every hall and vestibule is now
brought into requisition.
During the month of September
we have enrolled ninety-three stu-
dents. The "esprit de corps" is
excellent, the health of the pupils
was never better, the appreciation
of the community is all that could
be desired But we do not see as
great an interest among the mem-
bers of the society as its impor-
tance demands; when, howrver,
they are comfortably quartered
in their hall they will have a
greater incentive to effort,
Now then, "a long pull, a strong
pull, and a pull altogether'' and
we will make a good landing next
We now have four editors in-
stead of two as heretofore, which
will benefit our paper as well as
make the work lighter on all. Our
society ahd school are much inter-
ested and we are hoping for gri at
things this year.

voidably late. We were com-
pelled to wait for the opening of
our school so as to make positive
statements concerning it. Our
opening was never so good, and
new pupils are coming in all the
time. With the large increase in
our school we hope to make our
paper larger and still better.
We again urge the members of
the Society to be punctual in at-
tending all meetings, paying all
dues, and carrying out the pro-
gramme. We have every indica-
tion of an exceedingly pleasant
and profitable year, let nothing be
lacking 011 our part to make it so
The Philomathean will be issued
under the present management for
the remainder of this year; after-
wards changes will be made in its
management, which changes will
be noticed in due time. As it is now,
we cannot avoid being irregular in
sending out the paper, but with
the beginning of'87 we expect no
It is clearly proved that it pays
to advertise in our paper. Our
May and June readers will rerneqi-
ber an advertisement concerning
the sale of two buggies where, in
order to sell the buggies a good
horse was given with each. The
mere fact that they were adver-
tised in our columns was sufficient
guarantee of their worth, and it
was not long before the adver-
tisers were thronged with eager
buyers. One of them sold his
buggy without the horse, bought
another buggy, sold it, and has
now traded his horse, while the
horse, and driver- a complete sell.
Who is the buyer?

School Notes By Scliool Girls.
Wonder why boarders do not like
sociables; they never go.
Girls, one and all, look out! Prof.
Brown has two faces. When you are
standiug behind him in the vocal class,
be sure not to laugh.
One of the girls remarked that
she had been on the scales ever
since Prof. Brown came here! She
must be tremendous if it takes
that long to weigh her, .
We call special attention to the
advertisement found 011 our first
page. This is a worthy object
and appeals to the deepest feel-
ings of every southern man.

One of our -friends sending a
message said, "I didn't tell you
much to tell, so don't forget to tell
what I did tell you to tell," Yes,
we will tell every thing you tell
us to tell, but do not tell us too
much to tell, or Mr. Tarrant will
not let us tell all you tell us to tell,
so we tell you to tell it yourself.
