S. C. C. I. COMMENCEMENT.
Immense and Interested Audi
ences Enjoying- the Exercises.
It has been frequently remarked
that the most popular thing in
Edgefield either of the past, pres
ent or future is the South Caroli
na Co-Educational Institute A
striking manifestation of this was
seen in the immense crowd assem
bled in the opera house on Friday
.vening last to witness the closing
exercises of the grades under the
instruction of Mrs. King and Miss
Sudie Davis. It is doubtful if the
opera house has ever seated so
many people since its erection,and
looking over the sea of faces, e/en
the oldest inhabitants were forced
to say that many, many of them
were those of strangers, so far
abroad has gone the fame of our
great educational Mecca.
The first number on the pro
gramme was a vocal recitation by
Thelma Bailey and Francis Shep
pard, "If I were a boy", "If I were
a girl",provok iug much mirth from
the audience. "Needles and Pins"
was a dialogue beautifully recited
by Natalie Padgett and Lee Spen
cer. The ten Chinamen who next
appealed were so thoroughly Chin
ese that the mothers and fathers
present hardly knew their own
children. Their singing and pan
tomine gestures were "just as good
good as could be."
But the most beautiful and all
inclusive number of the evening
was the operetta, "Cinderella iu
FJowerland". Prologues on man<
uscript are often dull and tire
some, but prologues put in actior
are "a thing of beauty *and a joj
Such was the boat scene ic
which Sadie Mims, as the fair}
queen, sang with such clearness
and sweetness, "Come sail with m(

honor to their liege Lord, Prince
Sunshine, Clifford King, the elo
quent ruler of Sunbeam- Castle,
who won the hand of Fair Lady
Marguerite. At the appearance of
the Raindrops with their wafering
pot?, the Sunbeams shining
through the rain, made a beautiful J
rainbow in thedistai.ee. The two
proud sisters in the persons of
Royal Peak and Mattie Holstein
as Hollyhock and Tiger Lily acted
so well, that the audience was al
most persuaded to believe that
their jealousy and ill temper was
not assumed,but real. Lila Evans
sang at different times, two solos
much commented upon by the
Sunday morning of commencement
dawned clear and bright. The
opera house was filled with an ap
preciative and attentive congrega
tion, gathered to listen to the- dis
course delivered by Rev. T. P.
Lide, of Pendleton. His theme
was an eloqueut appeal for faith
ful discipleship urging all to bear
the cross of the legion of honor,
? and enduring to the end, receive
the crown of life in the mansions
prepared for them that love him-.
The service of Sunday evening was
a very interesting one, the sermon
being preached by Rev. T. P. Bur
gess of the Presbyterian chuich.
His discourse, in contrast to that
of the morning, was a declaration
of the delights of Christian disci
i pleship and was full of spiritual
The exercises of Mouday morn
ing consisted of two contests, one
for the Bailoy medal and one for
the J.C.Sheppard medal, by mem
bers of the Freshman and Sopho
more classes. The Bailey medal
was awarded to Mr. Hiatt, of Col
leton county. The speech of Mr.
Milton Bu88ey, of Red Hill, was
favorably commented upon. Mr.
Fred Dobey, of Aiken, delivered
his oration with unusual ease and
with distinctness and deliberation
The J. C. Sheppard medal was
awarded to Mr. Pat Bussey, of
Red Hill. The only other contes
tant was Mr. Claude Bailey, of El- |
lenton. The strains of the baud]
enlivened the programme at inter-]
vals. The enjoyment of the morn
ing was closed after a delightful
chorus by the young ladies of Mrs.
Bailey's music class.
Monday afternoon at 5 o'clock
in spite of a threatening storm, the
people of Edgefield and visitors,
manifested their continued en
thusiasm by their presence at the
annual celebration of the literery
societies. The debate was on the
query: Resolved,that immigration
to the United States should be
checked." The affirmatives was
argued by Miss Louise McKnight,
of Manning, and Cadet Kelly, of
Blackville. The negative by Miss
Anna Holmes and Cadet Garrie.
The judges pronounced the affirm
ative as the winning side, and the
society modal for the best debater
was presented to Mr. Kelly by Mr.
Enc Hardy, who had held it dur
ing the previous year.
The Musical Recital by the grad
uates in music on Monday evening
was the best of its kind ever given
in Edgefield, and could not have
been surpassed by graduates of
any other music school in the
State. Edgefield should be proud
of her great advantages in this
direction. The following pro
gramme was rendered after the
manner of great musicians, by
great musicians :
