NEW BERR- C OL L E GECOMII
Last Sunday dawned without a c
cloud, and one of the largest and r
most brilliant audiences that ever (
greeted a public speaker in New- i
berry, assembled in the Opera t
House to hear the
DACCALAtIEATE sEiMON. a
Alter the opening service cus- t
tomary in the Lutheran church, the r
venerable preacher, 1)r. A. C. We- e
dekind, of New JYork city, an- t
nounced his text, Feb. VI., 1, 2, 3, L
and invited special attention to the s
words, --Let us go on unto perfec s
Progress, he said, is the watch- v
word of the day. Whoever does d
homage at this shrine is the man of
our time; whoever refuses to offer s
frankincense at this altar is regard- a
ed as a laggard or a sort of human c
curiosity fit only for Barnum's mu- c
seum. This judgment is not to be \
set aside. Progress is God's law c
in nature, and this divine law is l
seen also in the growth in grace v
and the development of mind, ie I
gave examples of cur amazing pro- j
gress in material science. A sub- I:
lime audacity characterizes us in r
our intercourse with nature. In N
crossing from Bremen to Baltimore t
in 1M37 he got more than enough of y
"Rocked in the cradle of the deep;*' u
to-day, in Charleston or New York. 1
you can appoint the day, almost the (
hour, of next week when your I t
friends shall meet you with a cab h
on the other side. We now bid de- n
fiance to the lightning and send it
as our post-boy with messages of ii
friendship or business, joy or grief t
to the remotest corners of the world. s
The divine law of progress appears n
throughout the domain of Christen t
don. It is the harbinger of the p
golden age of the worlM. a
But there is no such universal b
progress as is persistently alleged. 0
Its horizn is bounded by Christi- Y
anity; it exgends not beyond tire
lines of the Gospel truth. Heath
enismn, Idolatvry, anid Paganismn re-t
cord no real progress: their works
in the 19th century present a sorry
appearance when contrasted with 23
tile Pantheon of Rome, the Parthe
non of Athens, and the 7th wonder ~
of the world that stood at Ephesus t'
when Paul preached Christ and the ~
resurrec-tion. Tihe same is true of (
their literature of this age when ~
compared with the classics. The ~
Gospel sends from continent to C
continent,fromn kingdGm to republic, e
fromn city to cottage sigrns of p)ro- c
gress over which the IIebrew proph.
ets woub'l have clapped their hands.
Thlis jaw of progress asserts it
self also with re ference to Christiani
ty. Mlany who shout most lustily ~
declare their independence-andl
love to style themselves liberals. c
This means -Over-board with tire U
Bible, and Christianity." We
shoulid aim at true dtoctrinle, trumlv C
and faithfully appilied. Nothingr is o
so intolerant as truth. One lie will r
tolerate another lie, but the truthr is ti
thre uncom1promising~ enemy of both. g
lie then explained what is mreant 8
by Chrristiainity, the fixed centre a- 0
round which the moral world re- t
volve.s. It is a p)lant not -et by a
hruman hands- a stream that flows o
fromr tile thrrone of God to purify t
every stream and fountain in tihe d
progZress of science. The words of hr
the text murst come with peculiar n1
force to tire graiuating class as "
threir Alna Mater bids threm. Go tl

He said he wished to say some

lanly purposes of the young men,

Liem practicable views of the life
efore them. His object was to
erve rathcr than to entertain. He

Vhile you may not win the suc

ould not think of calling R. E.

ou - equal to its trials and greater j
dan its defeats. You should fix
our eye on the purpose of a high,
uspotted integrity. All else in
fe is sordid dross in comparison.
'haracter never fails-it hopes all
,lings and endures all things. The
eart and hand of each separate
man must win it for himself.
He said we must first form right
leas of success, and then choose
ie means by which we hope to
ucceed. He showed the enpti- ]

Ic ancients regarded as the <

ried berry County:
lent Ilav:ng given my views hereto
ple- fore on many of the questions pro.
)is. posed I now give them on the bal
ance of them:
yass The lasters office is one which
has existed in this State, as an ad
junet to the Court of Equity, for
>sed years. By referring matters of
account. the taking of testimony,
to etc., to the Master much of the
on valuable time of the Court is saved,
was and that part of the expense of
who litigation is shifted from the Cou-nty
01i- to the litigants themselves; thus
tves not only effecting a saving of cx
son pense to the County. but also en
abling the Court to give the time
thus saved to other business.
mtle- The fees of the Master fixed by
law are : For every day spent in a
reference, three dollars; for making
use. and filing his report in a case,
ore three dollars; for swearing and
life. taking the testimony of each wit
rant ness, twenty-five cents; for appoint
that ing a guardian ad litcn, two dollars;
and for taking and transcribing a bond,
Dr. three dollars; for examining and
but auditing accounts, one dollar; for
ent granting commissions to take testi
t he mony. one dollar; for every deed
nes or mortgage. three dollars; and the
stu same commissions for receiving
lec and paying out moneys as are al
lowed to sheriffs.
From this you will see that his
han costs are not excessive, and if we
had no Master th': cases now re
ferred to hini would be referred to
e of a special Referee, who would get
its the same fees and also would (as
ates w',as the case from 1870 to 1878
atiu while the Master's office was abol
a1ls; ished) get a fee from twenty-five to
the five hundred dollars in each case.
The The great expense in the settlement
of estates and other equity cases is

et.h- was re enacted in 1878, five dol

varying fortunes being due to cir
cumstances. In like mnanner it
may be said that all men desire to
dress well, the knowledge of where
to buy. making the only differ
ence in their wearing apparel.
One thing certain: The best dress
ed men, and those that pay the
least money for their Clothing,
buy at the Emporium.
'ihere can be no doubt about
this statement, because it is found
ed upon the plainest common
First.-Because I buy in larg~e
quantities. from man ufacturers,
which is more than half the battle
in commercial warfare, and thus
save at large p)ercentage usually
paid to middlemen.
Second.-I give my customers
the benefit of this pcreentage.
Thrd.-I purchase no gzarments
but those which are made cf Supe

and skillful workmen.
And lastly but not least my house
rests on the firm foundation of

Knowing that the Cash trade for the Summer will n e
cessarily be tight and not desiring to do0 any credit busi
ness, we have this day determincd to MARK DOWN
our goods to such low prices that every one will find it to
his interest to buy our goods at. Spot Cash .
Prices. Therefore we have cut dewn our prices on
Clothing, Shoes, and Hats
From 10 to 15 per cent. preferring to make a very small1
profit rather than to have a large quaniity of goods on hand
at the beginninig of another season. We mean what we say
as you will very readily perceive from a comparison of
for~mer prices, and in comparison with others' prices. We
haqve certain linies of Staw Wats that ge as
closing out nt 50c. on the $1.00. We call the attention of4
the ladies specially to our line of Opera Slip
