Miss Anna V. Raper, otyour city, delivered a lecture before the A. V. P. Literary Society of this village last Tuesday evening. The subject of her lecture was " The Press- The People." She came here very highly recommended and the citizeus were expecting a good thing. She sustained her reputation in every particular. She discussed the question in a way that was at once thorough and practical. She gave the best and most general satisfaction. And at any future time she will be welcome and draw a full house. I understand she has gived the same lecture in other places and with general approbátion. Lecture committees will do well to correspond with Miss Eaper. She will do them credit. People expres themselves confldent that she will rank among the best lecturers of the county. I have written this as a simple testimonial to a worthy woman. B. S. PAKDINüTON.
