DR.  JAMES  C.  CARTER
Highly Honored at Harvard University.
----------
          Dr. James C. Carter, son of  Mr. and Mrs. Isaac Carter of this city, has been highly honored at harvard, America's oldest and largest university.  Dr. Carter, who will graduate in the medcal department at Harvard University, has been selected as one of the internes for the Boston city hospital for the next two years.  The place is a very desirable one, as a young physician has his expenses paid and is given the best opportunity in the world to perfect himself in his chosen profession.  There were 17 out of a very large class that took the competitive examination to secure the appointment and Mr. Carter was one of four appointed and he ranking right at the top among the four.
          We are glad to see this bright Shelbvyille student taking such high rank where the competition is so vigorous.  The positions are very desirable and are sought by students all over New England.  Four were appointed from harvard and two from other New England colleges, making six in all.
