The Baccalaureate Sermon.
The baccalaureate sermon by Dr.
Dunbar Sunday morning was an
eloquent and forceful exposition of
the truth as it has been the pleasure
of a Newberry audience to hear in
many years. The great thoughts
which it contained were clothed
in beautiful language. and delivered
with an inspiring eloquence.
The services were conducted by
the Rev. W. L. Seabrook. and prayer
was offered by the Rev. S. T. Hall
,man. The music was furnished by
a choir composed of college students.
,Dr. Dunbar spoke for nearly an
our. ard during the whole time held
he cloze and undivided attention of
he class and of the large audience.
He chose his text from Esther.
4:14: "Who knoweth whether thou
art come to the kingdom for such a
time as this?"
He said that out of the old
tory of the language of the text
came the message for this morning.
The story of Esther was a bible gem,
arich, condensed and brilliant frag
ent of oriental history. The figure
f Esther the queen stood out upon
he dark background of unholy in
rigue and courtly corruption. the
adiant embodiment of pure goodness.
ut. as with all of us. there was a
upreme moment in her life, when the
hadow played with the light upon
the picture. and for a moment we
were in doubt which would prevail.
Being a queen was nothing in itself.
09ein~g a queen and doing a queenly
duty. she was crowned a queen for
all the ages.
The text, said the speaker. was the
appeal which came to her in her
moment of hesitaiton, and it came as
God's message this morning, and
with a special significance to those
whom he was to address. Esther had
come to a kingdom. With us the
crown of king-craft had been laid in
the dust. The social ambition to
Sake a prize of nobility's title was a
t avesty upon the American spirit.
The same appeal. said the speaker.

of Them in Verse.
I am sitting near the bee gums and
the bees are buzzing round.
The roses have been blooming and
their leaves are on the ground;
The first young rose of summer was
as sweet as it could be.
Put the busy bees with honey are the
sweetest things to me.
The branches of the shadow trees
are thick above my head.
The green grass of the season at my
rested feet is spread:
The partridge in the wheat field is
with whistle clear and sunny
While the bees are in their own sweet
fields gathering up the honey.
The honeysuckle richly gives sweet
in scents to the breeze,
The blue sky bends and dips it up
and would give to all hearts ease;
The perfumed crystals of the sun are
dancing o'er the land,
And the atmosphere is laden with
good goods on every hand.
The sweet girls roam across the fields
and give the blooms a touch,
And the honey dew forthwith springs
up and falls at touch of such:
The bees kn6w where the maids have
been, and they linger in their
And the fruit of the combination is
the honey that they make.
You talk about your baby. your flow
er and your b'rd.
Your grand and weetest music. the
best you eve, heard:
I turn them ove-' to you-they are
dear but still are free
But the music filled with sweetness is
the. humming .f the bee.
There is honey in each trembling
strain and every chord and sound
Of the buzzing bees of summer,
wheresoever they be found:
And the girls and bees and roses of
the good old summer time.
With the breezes and the fragrance.
make it beautiful, sublime.
The ant is busy with her work and
toilng all the day.
And all the hosts are active and are
struggling up the way:
But of all the busy workers from
the mountains to the sea.
There is none so truly busy as the
busy, busy bee.
Her sweetness is not wasted on the
desert air around.
But it's stored up in the honeycomb,
in gums so safe and sound:
And when the gums have swoolen
and the bees hang out their sign,
The robber robs without a fear of
paying fee or fine.
Stolen honey sweetest is. from comb
so fine and thick.
And when you see it o uzing out you
want to get there quick:
You want a thousand tongues to help
and aid you in your plan
To roll more drops of honey then
than any other man.
ISweet morsel of the dripping cells,
the price oi comb so clear.
When next. by gum, you open wide.
let me be there. .be there;
I'll want to be on hand again, with
room and space to spare,
For wheresoever, the honey is. I
wish to have my share.
But th,ere are other bees that 'buzz
about, are buzzing everywhere,
A buzzing in the county round and on
the court house square:
They sometimes sting, and, as a rule,
the stingers lose 'their sticks
These bees : au hear buzzing now
are the bees of politics.
There is a great big bumble bee. and
the hec of smaller size.
Anud the king bee and all others, hard
working for the prize:
They are searching all the nields for

The balance all had found their jobs:
one succumbed on Mr. Kibler.
They battled up Port Arthur bay, and
the fleet was in high glee
It made things interesting like, on the
polly tickle sea
Everybody went out t6 look. and they
went far out to see,
Including in the merry group big you

And then float in and out of town
