Chew Jackson's Best Sweet Navy
A little negro living on Mr. Albert
C. Sligh's place, near Beth Eden Church,
is the lucky owner of a nickel which he
keeps in a little box. One clay last
week while at the well, box and nickel
fell from his hand into the depths be
low. Long and wistfully he gazed into
the well where his treasure was, and
floating on the surface he at length was
able to see it. Quick as thought and
with no one to advise-every one being
absent--he mounted the curb and get
ting in worked his way down to the
water and secured his treasure. On
coming up and while near the top his
hat fell off and down again he went and
secured that. Just as he was emerging
from the well one of the family return
ed and thus learned of his hazardous
exploit. He is about ten years old and
his legs were just long enough to reach
across. The question for debate is
whether he had a big love for money or
a huge contempt for danger.
The Past Week

unusual interest by visitors anid citizens
-very much was crowded into that
brief period. On Monday night the
young ladies of the Female Academy
appropriately opened the Literary en

ly packed audience; next day andl the
two followin:g Newberry College claim

witnessed the same unflagging interest
of 'he untiring crowds. Thursday night
the Thespians ofiered a rich bill of fare

the great crowd-never before was
Thespian Hall so packed. On Friday
night, the occasion of the closing exer

Miss Helen Morris Lewis.
Having never heard Miss Lewis we
cannot undertake to say anythinr in re
gard to her dramatic performances from
our own knowledge. The press of this
State and of Georgia, speak of them,
however, in the highest ternis of praise.
The News and Courier, of Charleston,
whose criticisms are always searching
and impartial, pronounces her an. elo
cutionist of a very high order of talent
and genius. The Chronicle and &nti
ncl, of Augusta, speaking of her ability,
"Tiie fiir !adv has an undoubted dra-nat
x talent. It shinies in her eyes, tilliIs in
her countenance, glows in hwr whole indi
viduality. She is a born actres , with all
the advantages necessary to perseverance,
even amid uncommon obstructions, and the
dominant, undaunted purpose of final tri
umph. That she is destined to become suc
cessful in her chosen career we entertain
not the slightest doubt. Nothing will ever
swerve her fioni it, for, in adlition to a love
of art for art's sake, she has the steady and
unshaken viil that never fail< at last to
make a gift of heaven, cultivated by the
gifts of man, a power in the world that
loves pluck and rewards it in the eud. So
we have no fe.-irs for Miss Lewis."
Thle Evening News says:
"When we see a beautiftil y.oung woman
looking timidly over fron her girlhood, bid
ding for the world's applause, we are ai
ways predisposed to be extremely gentle
and kind in passing judgmentf but in the
ease of Miss Lewis there was no appeal to
our sympathy, or necessity for our partial
consideration. Her genius commanded our
admlairation, and the exquisite success of
her every effort won justly our enthusiastic

TuoM i-so., Dentist, opposite Herald office
Newberry Male Academy.
The closing exercises of this flourish
ing school were held in Thespian H-all
on Friday night last, and the occasion
was one of unusual interest. There is
scarcely a family in the town but is re-I
presented in the school by one or more
of its boys, and this coup)led with the
high esteem in which Mr. Clarkson, the
Principal, is held, and the knowledge of
his great success as an educator, created
a wide-spread interest. Fathers and mo
thers, and (pardon us) "uncles, aunts
and cousins" and friends, were all on
the qui t'ice, so at an early hour the
hall was filled with an eager, expectant
audience, and we are pleased to say
that there wasn't a mite of disappoint
ment, the boys from the tiniest up to
the half grown acquitting themselves in
a splendid manner, thereby reflecting
great credit on their instructor, -and
causing big heart throbs in the breasts
of p)arents and friends. Newberry, too,
has cause to be proud of her boys who
one day are to be her men. We take
particular pleasure in tendoring our
congratulations to Mr. C. at this evi
dence of his ability, and to the boys our
high appreciation and thanks for the
pleasure afforded. The following was

excellent music by the Cornet Band:

If we would behave ourselves becom

The exerilses of Newberry College
Commencement were l:gely attended.
The Court Hou1se was filled to overflow
ing at all the exercises. The ushers
did all they could towards providing
the audience with seats, and it was not
tiheir fault that every1b.oly wa; not como
fortable, but the fault of those who built
the Court Louse-thev didnit Iake it
largeO enionghi for such occasions. e
sides the people in the village and tLhe
surrounding country. quite a number
were in attendance from a distance.
Notwithstanding the exceedingly hot
and( dry weather the Commencement
was a very pleasant occasion, and was
Tuesday morning Prof. J. B. O'Neall
Holloway, Principal of St. Mathew's
Academy, delivered the Alumni Ad
dress. Mr. Holloway graduated at
Newberry College, while it was located
at Walhalla, in 1875, with distinction;
a few years ago be took charge of St.
Mathew's Academy, in Orangeburg
County, and has built up a fine school.
The subject of his address was, "Popu
lar Education based upon a sound
Morality the only enduring Hope of a
Republican Government." The speak
er handled his subject with consum
mate ability; his thoughts were prac
tical and clear, dealing with living
issues of the day, and logically arrang
ed. We can- only give a few of the
leading thoughts: (1) In a democratic
government, where ideas are establish
d and public opinion is controlled by
the people, education is a public neces
ity-there can be no guaranty of per
manence and prosperity without it.
(2) The State should bestow on all her
itizens such an education as will fit
them for the intelligent discharge of the
functions of government-a republican
government where demagogues can
deceive and mislead an ignorant peo
ple is worse than a despotism. (3) Edu
cation is a preventive of crime-the
statistics of penal and reformatory in
stitutions prove this conclusively. (4)
Education is a wealth-producer, giving
new incentives to industry-ignorance
and indolence go hand in band. ('5)
The freedom of a country depends on
its intelligence. (6) Education is an
agent in bringing about a human bro
therhood-it annihilates distances and
brings all the world into a closer com
munity of thought and interests. (7)
It is as much the duty of the State to
provide public education as for in
ternal improvements. The address is
spoken of on all sides as one of more
than ordinary merit.
Tuesday night the Court IIouse was
crowded to hear the
SPEECH ES OF THlE JUNIOR~S.
Elbert H. Aull, of Edgefield County,
took for his subject, "It is better to
seek the fountain than to follow the
stream." He spoke some good thoughts,
and said that true moral courage never
shines more brightly than when rely
ing upon one's self, and that true great
ness does not consist in following oth
ers-moral courage showing itself more
fully in the many who resist the current.
His speech was well delivered and
equally as wveil composed.
Andrew J. Bowers, of Helena, came
next. His subject, "The Ruins of Time,"
was well sustained in its dress of chaste
sentences and beautiful thought, with
apt illustrations from the history of the
past, for he said go where we will we
can see memorials of the wrecks of
time. He also spoke of the ruins of
time discernible in the animal life. His
address was well composed.
"Despise not Small Beginnings" wvas
chosen by Jacob Ellrhardt, of Barnwell
County, and lie began by saying, after
an illustrative anecdote, that all nature
was crowded with witnesses on this
point, and that the small beginnings of
life's estate should not be disregarded,
as also education and civilization. This
was the speaker's first effort, and we
are candid when we say it was a good
John B. Jones, of Newberry, next
spoke on the su'oject of the "Desire to
be emembered." He delivered his
remarks in a forcible manner, and in
th6 course of his speech said that the
desire to be remembered was the first
to animate the human heart and the
last to leave it; there was a discord in
the sound, "Forgotten!" It is the de
sire to be reme"Tbered that stirs men to
aim high, and this desire is often the
cause of much good.
Muller 0. J. Kreps, of Aiken County,
next expressed his opinions on the "In
depence of Opinion," and said that to
think, reason and decide for himself
constituted man's independence, and
with no independence of thought a man
would be like a guide post at the cross
oads. Man is not to form his opinions
from mere caprice nor is lie to grope in
darkness, but to test all things. He
remarked that it wasaonly those person1s
with independence of opinion who left
their footprints on the sands of time.
Mr. Kreps' speech was dlelivered in
goodl style, and was well constructed.
Burr J. Ramage, Jr., of New berry,
then spoke of "Silent Inlluence," and
cited examples of the silent workings
of nature. Hle gave the audience some
good remarks on this subject, among
which we found time to jot dlown the
truism that some persons elevated :~
clear," opened his remarks by a tale
which was well an( charmingly told.
His speech was replete with beautiful
thoIghts, well illustrated by examples
from ancient and modern annals, and
his style was quite forcible.
The eighth and last speaker was
John W. S. Sheppard, of Helena, who
spoke of "Progress." He reviewed the
progress of science and art, the study
of the star-. and the advaneenwrit of
our own country. le spoke also of the
progress of Christianity from the time
when it was considered a crime to be a
Chritian. le denied that present in
velitions could not be improved upon,
and conchuded by s:jying th:it there is
room always for ample improvement.
Mr. Shepp:artl's 'fo0rt w:s very credita
The speehes occupied about twelve
minutes each, and the band discoursed
good music ")t the intervals.
Wednesday mnorning Rev. S. A. Re
pass, D. D., of Salem, Va., delivered
THE ANNUAL A))RES3
before the Excelsior and the Phrena
kosmiian Literary Societies of the Col
lege. Iis subject was, "Life; its con
fliets and dangers." He dealt largely
with metaphysics and the laws of men
tal and moral science. While not cal
culated to captivate the popular ear nor
fascinate the untutored mind, his ad
dress was scholarly and profound, show
ing extensive research and polished
Wednesday evening there was a
CONTEST IN ORATORY,
participated in by three of the students,
who deliverpd original speeches. An
drew J. Bowers. of Helena, spoke of
"The Battle of Life"; Bartow B. Ram
age, of Newberry, of "Hope"; and
C. W. Welch, of Lexington, of "Na
ture's eternal registry of all things."
The speeches were all good, and were
well spoken. A committee awarded
the medal to C. W. Welch.
and of course was the day of all others.
The exercises had been announced for
9 o'clock; but many had secured their
places fully an hour before the time, so
eager were they to see and to hear.
After every seat and the aisles were
filled many were still left outside. A
hall double the capacity of the court
room would have been required to dis
p)ose of the vast audience comfortably.
The seven members of the Senior Class
delivered their graduating speeches.
J. WV. Daniel, of Oconee, spoke of "The
Field for Southern Literature." in a
spirited address, deprecating the ex
treme utilitarian ideas of our people,
who care more for money than dulture,
and ignore as useless and unworthy
everything that does not help to make
the almighty dollar. E. P. Aull, of
Newberry, chose for his theme, "Acting
from Principle," maintaining that pru
dence, justice, fortitude and order
should be the grand controlling princi
ples by which man's life should be di
rected. S. 0. Kaminer, of Lexington,
dIscussed "The Future Gentleman" in
an entertaining style. His address was
graceful and easy, and he caused con
siderable merriment by some of his
happy hits of the "gentleman of the
period." W. WV. Daniel, of Oconee,
spoke of the "The Past and Future of
our Earth." His speech was geologi
cal, and he succeeded in making a dry
subject interesting by the clearness with
which he treated it. J. F. Hobbs, of
Edgefield, chose for his subject, "So
cialism"--a lively subject, wvhich he
treated in a lively and forcible manner.
Mr. Hobbs has the material for an orn
tor in him. J. E. Berley, of e wberry,
discussed "The Unseen Universe." His
speech was chaste in thought and ]an
guage, and with a little more anima
tion his delivery wvould be excellent.
The next part of the programme was
the delivering of
