A Modern Apollo.
Dr. H. G. Hartzog, the
commencement orator of 'o?,
donated to the S. C. C. I. a
medal to be given the young
man who made the most pro
gress in athletics during the
session just closed. The com
mittee after due consideration
awarded the handsome gold
medal to Joe Gordon Holland
Joe is as cornel}- of face and
powerful of form as David
and could slay a modern Go
liath without even putting the
stone in a sling
Every heart in the opera
house on Wednesday evening
'T?st was filled with hosannas [
and hallelujahs of thankful
ness when the announcmentj
was made from Col. Bailey's
own lips, ex cathedra, that
the S, C. C. I. was perman
ently located in Edgefield
'and that all rumors to the ef
fect that the school would be
moved to another place were
absolutely without foundation.
Long live the South Carolina

A recent commencement
orator spoke quite apropos, in
addressing the student body
of a female colledge, when he
said : "Before I would marry
a man to reform, I would
sooner wed an ape and wait
for his development". If more
women thought asthis speaker
and would be more exacting
of men there would not be so
many men needing reforma
tion A man would take hts
own life, before he would
marry a woman to reform
her. The women are largely
responsible for two standards
of morals being applied to the
sexes. The moral tone of a
community, so far as t h e
young men are concerned' is
largely what the young ladies
make it. Tolerating a lax code
of morals, as applied to men,
?C_?O ?.d?n-underline sun,*
developed to his purest and
highest estate, is, after all,
worthy the affection of a pure

to follow unrestrained the in
clinations of his baser nature
he must and does prove to be
totally unworthy of this affec
Young ladies when a young
man, whose mind is becloud
I ed and whose breath is pollut
ed with whiskey, asks to be
your escort or to call at your
home* say no-a great big
NO. Then if he is your friend
and ^desires your companion
ship he will give up intemper
Ste habits. If he does not and
thereby shows that he prefers
riotous living to your good
will and esteem you have
gained rather than lost.
Would that the yonng ladies
of every community would
? Good Ending.
Well, well ! the Virginia con
stitutional convention has at
last completed its work ! The
memory of a man can scarce
ly recall the day on which it
first assembled. For months
and. months - almost years
and years-this body has been
?n session. The old mother
state, the model of states in
I many respects, surely has or
should have a model constitu
;tion. Doubtless Virginia's
coffers were replete when the
convention assembled but we
dare say they were depleted
when the day of adjournment
The members of this cori
vention have labored faithful
ly to make their fundamen
tal law as near perfection as
was possible for the finite
mind to make it. Avery ap
propriate and commenable
act was the last amendmentL
"recognizing Almighty God!
-and making acknowledgment!
pf His bountiful mercy to all
the people." The members
of the convention may have
dilly-dallied and shilly-shal
lied all these months but
they redeemed themselves by
embodying the above stated
amendment in their organic
