Commencement at the Wesleyan Meti
odist College. Central, S. C.
Believing !that the peop1
of Pickens county will be inter
ested in an account of the Con
mencoment Exorcises of - th
only College in its bounds, w(
say that the Fifth commence
ment of the Wesleyan Metho
dist College of Central, S. C'
was the best in its history. The
presence of the Official Board
of the Denomination added
much to the dignity and inter
est of the occasion. Rev. W. J.
Seekins, Connectional Agent,
preached the Baccalaureate Ser
mon on Sunday morning May
14th, Rev. A. T. Jennings, Edi
tor of the Wesleyan Metiodist,
give the address to the Literary
Association and led a Memorial
service for the Rev. L. J. Har
rington, first President of the
institution. Rev. E. D. Carpen
ter, Educational Secretary,
gave a Missionary Address.
These three gentlemen were
all from New York, and
together with Rev. E. T. Teter,
the Missionary Secretary from
Indiana, formed an Executive
Board for the consideration of
questions relative . to the im
provement of the school. It
has been currently reported that
the school is to be moved, and
the Board considered this sub
ject very carefully. Tempting
offers were made by North Caro
lina and Georgia, but the geo
graphical location, the health
fulness of this region, toeether
witlh the fact that the school
has, won the respect and confi
dence of the people, locally, de
cideA the Board to retain the
school at Central. This deci
sion meets the approval of the
many friends- of the college.
The only change made in the
Faculty was the election of Miss
Beth Harrington as Primary
teacher, in place of Miss Grace
One of the most interesting
events of the Commencement
was an Orotorical Contest, Mon
day night. Through the gen
erosity of one of the leading
merchants of Central, a ten dol
lar prize was offered for the best
original oration, second prize,
five dollars. There were five
competitors-H. A. West, of
Bryant, Id. W' .-M and Vi'
ginia Lawrence of Calhoun, F.
V. Clayton and Beth Har'ring
ton of Central. ~The productions
were excellent, and were mark
ed upon thought, composition
and1 delivery. .The judges were
Rev A. T. Jennings of New
York, Prof. Morrison, of Clem
son College, and Pr-of. Haynes
of Central Public Schools. Miss
Harrington was awarded first
and F. V. Clayton, second,
prize. On Wednesday morning
Rev. W. H. L. McLauren,
of Latta, S. C. addressed
a graduating class of eight-six
young men, and two ladies.
The address was fine and the
class was complimented on their
choice of speaker. Most of the
young people are expecting to
return for the College Course.
From J. D. Moore.
My ups in life have all been
downs. I thought when we lost
our son Sloan that it was bad
enough, but when I lost my
wife I lost all. We had lived
togetlier for 30 years, and she
was always good to me, no mat
ter what 1 done.
I received a letter from Mrs.
Dr. Maxwell the other (day, ex
pressing her symnpathy for me.
She told me I would mies "'Cou
sin Nancy," and wrote: "Well,
for so I do." Drops of grief cari
never pay the debt of hive I ow<
her. Lord! I give myself away
it's all that L can do.

And the Lord said: "Little one,
thou hast suffered enough," and

for the loss, but will shout to
meet with it where its sufferings
are no more.
