Tim Dnllttn Exhibition.
The commencement week exercises were opened last
Thursday evening, June 9, by the Delinn society. This was
the society's fourth annual exhibition. A few minutes before
9 o'clock the Delian secretary, Miss Stella Ducker called thcl
meeting to order. The program, which 'consisted of literary
and musical productions, would easily rank wilh the average
of such entertainments. The literary part of the program,
though in so.ne places'it showed hasty preparation, was,
Perhaps the most taking article, especially for Dclinns,
was (he poem read by President J. C, Porterfield, entitled
Two Delian Temples." The poem is printed in full in

Bowei were excellent. Not only were the selections t,ood in

Two orations finish the account of the literary part of th
program. The first one wns given by Miss Ida Matthews, enti
tied "Benedict Arnold 1 he Patriot, the Traitor." Miss Mat

Her voice is good, her manner easy, and her composition
above the average. J'he speaker thought that Mr. Arnold
career was due to hereditary influence and from the treat

disposition was revengeful, but as a man he was nnturallj
