AriiE LOCAL CONTEST MARKINGS.
Below is given the markings of the judges at the local
oratorical contest. The reason of their not being published
before is that they were laid aside for reference by myself
and afterwards entirely overlooked. The accusation of sin
ister motives made against the managing editor that he
withheld them from publication, is unwarranted and entirely
unjust. Jas. J. Sayer.
