reflected credit upon the students

that better work throughout every

been done during the past session

Sixteenth Annual Commencement
of the South Carolina Co-Educa
The commencement season
which annually fills the entire
year with expectation and ie
Edgsueld's gay season, was per
haps the tfery best in 1908. This
commencement was attended by
" a larger number of visitors than
usual, and especially the alumnae
alumhi of the institution. .
Each year marks decided prog
ress in all departments of work,
and adds an impetus to the en
thusiasm and loyalty of an al
ready appreciative people.
Graduates in Music and Expres
The school of music and ex
pression have presented diplomas
this year tJ one student in each
department, to Miss Lillie M uv
Baily in expression and Miss
Edwardian Blalock in music. The
first entertainment of commence
ment was a joint recital by these
two young ladies.
Miss. Blalock who bas been
known from jher childhood as
gifted in miibic, by inheritance
and training throughout the years
has continued to develop, findin?
a consummation iu ber gradua

Miss Roselle Bums, have already
become a sufficient attraction ot
themselves tn draw* a large audi
ence in Edgefield. The school of
music has never given a more
delightful program than the ono
of las1* Wednesday evening.
The leading feature of the com
mf.ucemeut ou Thursday morning
was the company drill on the pub
lic square at 10 o'clock, being a
contest to determine which of ihe
two companies, A or B, bad at
tained the greater degree of f iii -
ciency in the field movements.
The judges were Capt. Claud* i?.
Sawyer and Mr. J. M. Richardson,
of Aiken, and Capt. Colvin. Com
pany B commauded by Capt.
Blacky drilled for about
an hour, every movement being
closely watched by the judges,
and then company A in com
maud ol'Cape. Iiumphreyg, march
ed upon the scene and likewise
drilled for au hour uoder the
closest scrutiny of the judges. At
the conclusion of the drill thp
committee of judges annouueed
their decision in favor of compa
ny A. Both companies, however,
made au excellent appearance,
there being only a few poiutsiu
favor of the winuing company.
At five o'clock Thursday after
noon, the hour set for the contest
for the Burus-Colvin medal, the
corps of cadets marched back up
on the square, where for fully two
hours they executed the manual
of arms. The same committee of
judges that acted during the
morning contest served again in
the afternoon. The two compauies
were formed into a squad uuder
the command of Capt. Hum
phreys, who gave the commands
in clear, audible tone. From the
outset the hundreds of spectators
manifested the keenest interest in
the contest. As the ranks thinned
the interest and enthusiasm be
came more intense^ Finalty, all
were thrown out except Sergeant
Keels, of Summer county, and "Ser
geant Knotts, of Lexington coun
ty. For some time these two men
drilled with perfect accuracy, nei
ther making an error. The heated
contest was brought to a cloRe by
the failure of Sergt. Keels to exe?
cute a command properly, which
caused Sergt. Knotts to be thp
happy winner. He was very gen
erally complimented not only for
his remarkable skill in the manu
al of arms but upon his fine sol
dierly bearing and the ease and
grace with which he executed
In a most befitting manner,

Stringed Instrument Recital.
The audience on Thursday
?vening enjoyed a unique enter
tainment, one of a different kiud
from any previously given at com
mencement season. Miss Couch
bas gone beyond the ex
pectations which her . splendid
recommendation gave promise of,
ind in thiscoucert of stringed in
struments surprised and pleased
ill of Edgefield. The students who
participated in this program were
Misses Lillie May Bailey, Rosa?ee
Parker, ?lan Mellett, William
Colvin, Clarence Black and Hoyt
Dook, assisted by Prof. J.F. Entz
?ninger on the cornet and Miss
?ouch on the piano. Special praise
vas bestowed on the soloists, Cadet
Clarence Black and Hoyt Cook.
v Art Levee.
The attendance and interest
nauifested in the art levee on
Thursday afternoon ?was even
jreator than usual. The large
)aintiugs, drawings and beauti
ul array of china painting re
lived much favorable aud appre
?iative comment. Miss Eliza Mims
han whom there is no greater
irtist in the state, was the central
.nd foremost figure in the studio,
o whom all the praise for tho
[rowing table of Edgefield in mat
ers of art must be credited.
School of Expression.
Friday evening the school of
xpression uuder the directiou of
liss Tiedale, gave a play, "RP- ,'.

nanimously"pronounced the best '
f many go?d plays given in the

vening during commencement '
ii which tickets were sold and J
lol. Bailey anuouucpd at the
loee of the program that a larger (
mount had been taken iu tbau "r
a any similar occasion. ^
Contests in Oratory. .
The contest? in oratory each 1
ommeucement by the members 1
f the societies of the college are t
Iways occasions of interest. On 1
Saturday evening in the auditori
um in spite of inclement weal her,
a large audience heard the con
tests, the first of which was rep
resented by Cadets Sanders and
Vam of Ihe Freshman class, the
former winning tho J. C. Shep

Both thes9young ladies are gifted
elocutionists, but one bad to be

original manner presented the
medals. Beautiful music was ren
dered in a sextette by Misses Nell
Junes, Natalie Padgett, Thelma
Bailey, Ella Mays, Emily Tomp
kins and Ruth Mays, aud a solo
by Miss Nell Joues.
The most interest and enthusi
asm of the commencement season
gathers around those thiugs most
immediately associated with tbe
graduating exercises. Sunday
morning was the occasion for the
preach i ug of the baccalaureate
sermon before the senior class.
The Baptist church was cboseu as
the largest audience hall, and it
was full of enthusiastic and in

Monday morning at ten o'clock
the most interesting eveut of the
commencement season took place
in the college auditorium, the cli
max towards wbich all else had
tendjd. The rostrum was occu
pied by the faculty, speakers and
the graduating clasn of sixteen
young ladies and gentlemen. The

well read. Miss Mims is the only
A. B. graduate of ber class. An
essay "The Human Paradise," was
read by Miss Lillie May Bailey.
The orator of the class was Clar
ence Black of Bamberg. The
speech was an iuterestii-.g epi
tome of South Carolina history,
aud was said to be the best ora
tion made during commencement.
Hon. J. C. Sheppard in a yery ap

handsome gold watch from the
faculty and students to President

President Bailey introduced, to
the audience at this time Hon. C
C. Featherstone, of Laurens, who
completely won and captivated
the large audience by ? mnffiiifi
cenc address to the graduating
class. He laid before the young
men and women, the meaning of

more enthusiastic commendation
by mor6 people than any perhaps
ever delivered in Edgefield.

Don't Mistake the Cause of

Edgefield Citizen Shows
Kow to- Cure them.
Many people never suspect their kid
neys. If su tiering from a lame, weak
or aching- back they think that it is
only a muscular weakness; when urina
ry trouble ??sets in they think it will
soon correct itself. That is just where
the danger lies. You must cure these
troubles or they may lead to diabetes
or Bright's disease. The best remedy
to use is Doan's kidney pills. It cures
all ills which are caused by weak or
diseased kidneys. Edgefield people tes
tify to permanent cures.
Mrs E P Jackson, Cedar Row, Edge
field, S. C.. says: "Although I have
not used Doan's kidney pills very long,
what I have taken have helped me so
much that I can endorse them as a
good kidney remedy. I suffered so in
tensely from pains in my back, sides I
and hips that 1 could not sleep well at ?
night, and felt little like doing my
work. Upon learning of Doan's kidney
pills, I procured a supply from Penn
& Holstein's drug store and began tak
ing them. I have received so much
benefit that I am going to continue
their use knowing that they will soon
effect a cure."
