PRESENTATION OF MEDALS!
GRADUATINU SPEHE9, Etc.
Our report of Commencement exer
cises closed in the last issue with Prof.
Haltiwanger's Alumni Address Tues
day morning, the 25th. That evening
the members of the Junior Class (the
rising Seniors) entertained the large
audience with original speeches. Had
not the audience been previously notified
that the speakers were Juniors, they
should most assuredly have been mista
ken for Seniors, and very worthy Sen
iors too, so scholarly were their ad
dresses and so gracefully were they de
livered. The class seems to be well
matched, in this department at least;
their addresses were of a uniformly high
character, both in thought and style,
and were it desirable it would be impos
sible to make any distinctions.
"Darkness Brings Forth the Stars,"
Edward P. Aull, Ninety-Six.
Moral Culture, J. Eusebins Berley,
Civilization, J. Fletcher Hobbs, Lex
Posthumous Fame, Silas 0. Kaminer,
Self-Reliance, Christian W. Welch,
Benediction, by President.
Wedresday morning Rev. H. W.
Kuhns delivered the address before the
Excelsior and Phrenakosmian Literary
Societies, his subject being "The Path
way to Usefulness." He said that suc
cess' is the almost universal desire of
man; but there are various opinions as
to what constitutes success. Many think
it is the possession of riches or of power,
or places of honor. True success.is to
possess that influence which enables
one to do good. That this is not ac
quired by one effort, however gigantic,
but by repeated and constant efforts.
The reason of many failures is that men
often tire and despair too soon. The
kind of success that springs up in a
night like Jonah's gourd will wither
and fade in the morning. The willows
grows up rapidly, and is .frail; the oak
slowly, and is strong. Too many at
tempt to become leaders amnong men.
In the present enlightened condition of
the masses few can be leaders: there is
little need for them.
The way to be useful is to be respect
ed, and the way to be respected is to
maintain a good character. "Let no
man despise you." This depends upon
yourselves; no man can despise you so
long as you are not despicable-a good
character commands universal respect.
Wednesday at 8 P. M., the contest in
oratory came off; the contest was
among members of different classes,
but of the same class in elocution. The
speeches were all driginal. The first
speaker was E. H. Aull, cf Ninety-Six;
Subject, "Knowledge is Power." The
matter of this speech was excellent, and
the delivery was so good that when he
closed it seemed certain that he would
get the medal. But when Mr. Berley,
of Newberry, got through speaking of
"The Instability of Earthly Things,"
the scales were about equally balanced.
Then followed M. 0. J. Kreps, of Gran
itevle, on "Genius ;" I. P. Hawkins,
on "Ei-inestness the Soul of Eloquence,"
and Jri. R. Leavell, Jr., with a stir
ring spejch on "America." The conm
mittee of Judges, consisting of Dr.
W. Sa Bowman, Rev. J. F. Probst,
Rev. E. T. Horne, Rev. J. A. Sligh
and W. J. Assman, Esq., then re
tired, and after a few minutes return
ed. Dr. Bowman announced that, Mr.
J. E. Berley had been awarded the
medal After a few appropriate compli
mentary remarks he bestowed the medal
upon the fortunate candidate, and the
rounds of cheers that wvent up from the
audience showed that it bad come to
the same decision as the committee of'
Thursday, the 27th, was
After prayer by Rev. Luther Broadus,
Irvin P. Hawkins, of Newberry, deliv
ered the Latin Salutatory in an easy,
deliberate style. W. E. Lake followed,
his subject, "Heroism of Every-day
Life." He was'-succeeded by J. Q.
Wertz, of Orangeburg, on "The Rulers
of the Age; its thinking, working
minds." They both did well.
-At this stage of the- proceedings Rey,
S. . Wingard rose and announced that
he had been deputed by the Alumni to
present a gold medal to the member of
the Graduating Class who stood highest
Sin Logic and Metaphysics. The medal
was then presented to J. B. -oks .Wing-.
Maj. Jas. M. Baxter then, in a neat
and short speech, presented on behalf

Rev. L. E. Busby, Salem, Va. He then
read out the names of those who had
passed the examinations and were pre
pared to rise with their clasqes at the
beginning of the next session. Several

their duty to the students themselves, to
their parents and to the interests and

nit students to higher classes unless
they aie prepared to go forward.
Those who will enter the Senior Class
next session are E. P. Aull, J. E. Ber

ev. 11. W. Kuhns announced to the
audience that at a meeting of the Board
Af Trustees that morning, Rev. Prof. G.
W. Holland had been elected President
Df the College. This ann uncement
was received with rounds of applause
rom the audience, who thus testified
their hearty concurrence in the seuti- t
ments of- the Trustees and their wvarm
admiration for the newly elected Presi
ent. There was no desire to go be
ind the returns. -President Holland is '

The President, before introducing the ~
V'aledictorian, said that the patrons and I

prelude to many that should follow.

The Valedictory Oration was deliv
ared by J. Brooks Wingard. He had
been taking inedals so prorniscuonsly ~
that the audience expected something
good; but his address went even beyond
expectation. It was splendid. We
bave heai many valedictories, but
never one equal to this. There was a
purity of style, an elegance of taste and
learness and strength of thought run
ning through it that marked its author
as,far above ordinary. We predict-that
the world will hear from this young
man before many years roll round. We
wish him and all his classmates abun
dant success in whatever calling they
may engage in, and the other students
a happy vacation.

OUR BANp.-We take pleasure in
complimenting the Newberry Band on
the marked improvement in their mu

organiations precluded anything like
success-so frequently did they change
membership that proficiency was an

that this is not the character of the pres

' Leavellspoke of "The Duty of the Chris

es is the Duty oT Christians in Political
re Elections?" elicited several responses.
es J. F. Spearman said that Christians
of should ex6rcise their right to vote, and
ie should vote-not "early and often"
1g but for the best man there is a proba
)- bility of electing. In this way they aid
th in securing good government. Should
m ally themselves with the best political
' party. John A. Chapman took the
'- ground that a Christian cannot ally him
's self with any political party. The
I Church has become. so corrupt becaiuse
- it has gone to the world. Doubted
- whether a Christian should vote at a
political election. Revs. Carter and
- Broadus said it was impossible to stand
- aloof from p0itics; Christians should
use their influence and their votes to
get good men-not necessarily religious
- men-but men of good moral character
r into office.
r, Rev. Broadus spoke on Temperance,
3 and argued that a Christian's only safe
3s ground, in view of his own liability to

ence on others, was-total abstipence from

blootaed upon her cheek. One April morn
she was overtaken by a "spring shower,"

she was induced to try Dr. J. Bradfield's Fe
male Regulator. One bottle cured her. She
was again the happy girl shl was.that April
