"Education is a companion which
no misfortune can, depress-no crime
destroy ?io enemy alienate-no despo
tism c. slave. At home, a friend;
abroad an introduction ; in solitude, a
solace; and in society, an ornament."
It ia oue of the blessmgs of the
law of compensation that while
for the cultivation of the mind
there must be borne struggles and
hardships, these strivings are ac
compa.rdwith the most delight
ful of companionships-commu
nion cf :nind and heart with the
cheerful and congenial 'spirits of
Schcol days are indeed joyful
and happy days! But in the re
trospect, there is a thought of
overw -aiming sadness, that these
aro i?oliph?s which can be enjoyed
no mor.-. We may go back to the
old ocliool, and enter the same
door, ai:d greet the same friends,
but tho bond of sympathy is gone.
In a few years time, the varieties
and vicissitudes of life will have
so absorbed and consumed thought
and o. . rgy that the school life is
only a delight in the eye of the
mind, as a vision of yore.
A scone appears to the mind
now of a visit to the Alma Mater
some months after graduation. A
few friends of lang syne were there
to greet Jhe wanderer returned, but
the rest were all strangers, sitting
in the same chairs and at the same
Mable, n:.d occupying the same
room which were once the posses
sion of dear friends, scattered here
and there since the departed year.
The unfamiliar faces of the stran
ger created a lonely and desolate
feeling, that this which was once
and I must hie me "away "To find
. ernffloyrnent and comfort in some
other sphere. So.it is that "mel
ancholy attends the best joys of
an ideal life."
In after years the meeting with
school friends causes a glow of
pleasuro out this gleam of sun
shine ia loon dipsipated, aDd a
short conversation reveals that
sympathy and companionship
change with time and circum
stances. 'Tis a joy without an af
But one must not dwell on these
patting scenes. It may be that
, school uay friendships will abide
for ayo in "The Beautiful Land of
Chrr; ,-ih the mementoes and
memorio-. of the school life, and
sometimes in the coming days they
will bring to your heart a sweet
thrill, in dreaming of the years
long gone. It may be that time
has formed her yep rs in a circle,
and thr.t in some brighter sphere,
these it'asures of youth will re
turn to us, and it will all be as it
-; RE KINDERGARTEN.
Bnt upon such gloomy abstruc
tious it is not wiso to dwell, so
?'come lffc ns live with the chil
dren," thcoo beings whose life
should I:e and is the very essence
of joy, innocence, and love. It is
safe to Fay that in all the history
of Edgefiold therr has never heen
such a period of expectancy and
enihusirsm in a good cause as was
manifested on last Saturday at the
approach of the closing exercises
of 'he Kindergar ten school.
Though i: was Saturday evening
a time generally unpropitious tor
such occasions, the Opera House
wes crowded with people intense
ly interested in the coming enter
tain mei I.
The welcome to the audience
was a little song, and such artless
beauty and innocence could not
have been otherwise than sincere
in this happy greeting.
Years gone by it was considered
a wonder that a child of a dozen
years could perform on the piano
before an audience. That has
ceased to be a marvel and these
can only win applause by the man
ifestation of genius cultivated. It
ib still astonishing however to see
children of 3even years mount a
piano stool with difficulty and
then with composure begin and
end a composition which has re
quired attention and practice. The
"March of the little Mon," a duelt
by Cl iii ?rd King and Sadh M ms
was such a marvel.
Edgefield had never seen brforr <
rvljUlo-girl of five 3-rnrs r?ridcr ?
violin sn!o, buton P?-?'r??r even
ing Li.le MIES Thelma Bailee
made a most becoming debut as !
violinist, not only becoming bu
The recitation by Troy an<
Douglas Anderson, "Which i
Which?" did not clear up th
mystery in the minds of the peo
pleas to which was which, lu
only inteusiiicd it.
The piano solo Doll's Ball Galo]
by Sadie Mims was a triumph o
skill for little fingers.
As the program advauced th
audience became more and mor
charmed and surprised at the ca
pacity for training which thee
little ones possessed, and the pow
ers of the Kindergarten teacher
in developing if.
Thelma Bailey recited and sun?
quite a long selection with a cho
rus by all the children. This re
quired a decided effort of th?
memory which is one of the dis
tinctive offices of the Kindergar
Miriam Norris created quite i
ripple of audible admiration whei
she sang the little song "My Dol
ly." She went about her singing
with an air of 6elf possessior
which many a grown up persor
might have envied. But she knevt
what she could do and was nol
ashamed of it. Her voies was real
ly a marvel of sweetness and mel
ody seldom heard in a child of bei
The most amusing item on tb?
program was tho Topsy Turvy
Drill. This was followed by an
other violin solo, this time howev
er the performer, was Sadie Mims,
who manifested much reason foi
The Tom Thumb Wedding won
the most vehement applause of
anything during the evening. Our5
gentleman remarked that "noth
ing could follow which would be
as good, and that it would be a
good time to Btop to leave the best
impression, but he changed hie
mind as the 'evening advauced,
and said that the "last was not
least, but best."
A piano trio, Marche by Streab
bogcame next by Sadie Mims,
Emma Boukuignr, and Clifford
The Toy Symphony was partici
pated in by quite a number of the
children. This to a peraon who
understood music, was one of the
most interesting features of the
program. It brought out forcibly
attention, concentration o?mind
the cultivation of music, perfee
accuracy of detail and exactnesi
in time. Tho children who tool
part in the symphony ?vere Joni
Barry, Roy Parker, Sadio Mims
Emma Bouknight, Anni9 Cante^
lou, Julia Folk, Clifford King anc
Music followed by the string
quartette, Miss Marcie Gwaltnev
and Maxcie Sheppard first and
second mandolin, Miss Eloise An
derson and Mr. Buist Anderson
first and second violin.
The program ended with a plaj
by all the children in the Kinder
garten, called the "Brownie's Tri
umph or a commotion in Fairy
land." This was a beautiful and
thrilling scene for every eye. The
idea that facts are more potent
than arguments, had in this play
an unquestioned pr? of. The ideas
which these children have memo
rized will remain with them fur
ever, will grow up with them, and
help to mak3 them great and
The commencement sermon was
preached on Sunday morning in
the Opera House by Rev. Dr. T,
M. Bailey of Greenville. The Sun
day evening sermon by Rev. Mr.
T. C. O'Dell of the Epworth Or
phanage in Columbia.
Monday morning at ten o'clock
the annual celebration of the three
societies of the Institute took
place in the opera house. The band
played an inspiring selection, af
ter which the audience was led in
prayer by Dr. Bailey.
The three societies are the Fi
delian for young ladies, and the
Pierian and L. R. Gwaltney socie
ties for young men. The pro
gramme was conducted and an
nouncements made by Mr. George
Scott of the Senior class. Miss
Bertha Briggs read a very amusing
story in an intelligent manner, and
the young men of the chorus class
saug that old and familiar song
"My old Kentucky Home." Mr.
Robert Black in a very sweet and
melodious voice sang thesoio, and
the clsss joined in the chorus. The
young men composing this chorus
were Messrs. J.. F. Eutzmiuger,
Robert Black, Faust, Quattlebaum,
Brown, Ralph Jones and Edgar

art. Calhoun Mays is considered
a young mau of brigbt mind and
vigorous intellect, and has already
made his mark as an orator. The

on to the best speaker for the fol
lowing year. It has already boen
in the possession of Mips Julia

and is now in the honored posses

Frank Huggins also was much
above the ordinary in his speech,
and many wer) undecided as to
which the judges would deem most
worthy of ?he rev ard.
Miss Lula Calo of Monetta ren
dered a beautiful as.d aiti=tic vo

The closing exercises of the pri
mary and intermediate depart
ments of the South Carolina Co
Education.il Institute took place
in the Opera House on Monday
evening. The hackneyed phrases
of full house, crowded house etc.,
becamo tame expressions when
applied to the audience in the
Opera House on this occasion. To
say that the audience was the lar
gest ever gathered in that building
would more nearly convey a cor
The curtain opened upon a
scone of exceeding beauty, a stage
full of the prettiest little girls and
the handsomest little boys in the
State of South Carolina. If out
siders did not think so they will
have to overlook the motherly
pride of old Edgefield for her chil
dren, and remember that they are
our own. Just to have beh?ld
their innocent and beautiful faces
would have been a satisfaction,
but this was not all. Their little
voices pealed forthin a song of
none but children.
Prof. Entzminger of the Insti
tute conducted the evening's ex
excises, and next announced to
the audience a piano trie by
Misses Maggie Cameron, Lillie
May Bailey, and Ethel Mays. This
war. well performed, and was a se
lection well calculated to please
an appreciative audience.
Little Miss Hortense Peak reci
ted that touching and heart-stir
ring poem "Papa'f Letter/' in a
modest but intelligent manner.
A piano duett followed by
Misses Ellen and Emmie McKie.
This was a very pleasingselectiou,
and displayed a decided talent.
Ellen McKie is only eight years
old, and at the beginning of the
session did not know a note. She
played with remarkable accuracy
both of time and execution, and
will with perseverance become an
honor to the profession of music
Another one of*Mie unusually
al tractive features .the evening
wae a song by little Emmie Tomp
kins, "Bridgie Brown." The whole
house could hear every word that
she sang, an unusual accomplish
ment even to the matured vocal
ist. It is a great gift to possess a
well modulated voice and distinct
Miss Clare Grice recited a hu
morous selection in such a clear
ringing voice that she captivated
the listening crowd. Her intelli
gence and elocutionary gifts are
j remarkable for her yearn.
A piano duett by Miss Ruth
Cogburn and Miss Ruth Timmer
mau, was much enjoyed. Those
littlo girls manifested taste for
the "divine art," as well as patient
perseverance in practice.
Boys can seldom display their
talent as pianists, but they can
sing, they can use the voice which
was the first music of the human
race. The boys of the primary
and intermediate departments, in
chorus sang "The c'iou chou Ca?,"
which some people misunderstood
as the chew chew cow. When they
began to sing however, it was soon
evident that it was the puffing of
the engine and the ringing of bells
that they had come to sing. They
enjoyed it themselves, and made
: all else enjoy it.
A humorous recitation was next
; rendered in a winsome style by
?Miffs Ruth Tompkins.
Miiss Edwardina Blalock has
J ready become known as very tal
ented in the musical 6phere.
When such things are so well
known it is not necessary to make
much comment upon them. True
worth and ability must-and will
be recognized "sometime some
where." Her piano solo was ren
dered with grace and with a knowl
edge of its musical significance.
A recitation by Emmie Tomp
kins was as well done in the line
of elocution, as was her song in
the vocal line.
Richard Anderson also paid his
respects lo the audience in ono of
his vehement recitations, full of
energy and life.
A piano trio by Misses Alleen
Ouzts, Edwardina and Marion
Ri?loGH wns -ell' nnrl artist i ci-.lly'
Elliott Simkifi? closed tbie- part
nf tho PXfrcisoB hy his recitation
'Bingen cn.thc Rhine.' He display
ed a marl:rd energy of speech and
mad? the audience listen whether
they would or not, a great advan
tage in a speaker.
At this time the brass baud en
tertained the crowd, and kept
them in a good humor until the
remaining exercises were being
The "Three Wishes," a fairy
play in which all the girls of the
preparatory school took patt was
the last feature of the programme.
Lillie May Bailey WQB Queen of
the Fairies, ard the thren who
made the wishes were Earline Al
len, May Roper and Ellen Duno
vant. Non? of them need have
wished for beaut}', for that they
already posse63ed, and it may be
that the good Fairy Queen bad
already bestowed wisdom upon
them, for they at least had enough
of that to do "their share of work
well and creditably for 6uch youth
ful little maidens. It would not
be at a 1 just however to leave out
ali the rest of the apparently less
prominent Fairies, for it is not
always the one who says most, who
is worth most. One was just as
uee^ssary to the pleasure of tho
audience as the other, and every
little face, and every little singing
voice was a delight to all the
Tho people of Edgeficld need
yield precedence to no town or
city in this country or other in'
the matter of a graded school.
The hearts of our citizens should
swell with joy and gratitude that
their children are EO blessed with
this educational endowment.
