WiDEN FrIEND STREET.
The wideiing of Friend street on
eithei side and extending it to Cal
houn street will make it one of the
prettiest bouvelards in the city and
the only street near the business see
tion in which residences may be built
that will be 'both near and also quiet.
From Adams street to Calhoun there
is rio house on either side except
Mrs. Cook4's which is on the corner of
Adams and Friend street. Such an

justice t) ally o~casioni. First grapec

andi enjoyed by aill. Following this~
here was pr't~es e iickeni, salad, pic'k

be linie. At lem t hiis i'e c'ream in Nea
poilit an blocks was seived w ih enke
which was followed by thle entstomiar.1
coffee andi eheese.
Now caime thle most enijoyab)le pari
of the whole affair. Mr. Fred S
Long, 08, toastmaster, made a fev
well chosen remarks and introduce<
Mr. V. B. Sease, 'O8, wvith the toast
"'To Our Guests, the Class of 1907.'
Mr. Sease acquitted himself well in
few words of welcome and was fol
lowed by Mr. W. F. Hipp, '07, whc
in his usual pleasant way, thanke,
the juniors ofr their hospitality
Mr. E. HI. Rawi, 'O8, made a very ar
propriate toast, ''To the Faculty,
and -was answered by Dr. A. J. Bon
era in a short speech in his usu11
flnent witty style. Mr. 0. C. Kiblea
'07, in a toast, "The Scarlet and Sil
ver Gray," fired all present with a
love of old Newberry college. Mr. IL
U. Goggans, '08, gave a toast, "To
the Coeds," and certainly gave it
well, he had the undivided atteltion
of the body. Dr. Geo. B. Cromer, the
ex-president of Newborry,' was called
on for a speech, which was given in.
anl enjoyable and instructive manner.
Tro conclude the speaking,. -Mr. I. E.
long, '08, in a few words bade "Fare.
well" for the class of 1907.
After this the feasters left the tab
lei and enjoyed themselves in various
ways and merriment reigned supreme.
The cares and sorrows of college were
forgetton, and all seemed to enjoy
themselves. Then all departed after
what was pronounced the best ban
quet held yet. -Much of the success of
the affair is the credit of the young
ladies of the Presbyterian church,
whose dainty preparations were
crowned nost eompletely with sue
Rev. J. L. Williamson.
The deati, Friday, 4.30, -i. i., of
liev. .1. L. Williamson, has removed
40nie of singular piety, of consecrated
mind, of earnest Christian life. Nay,
more, there has gone froi among') us,
a mnan of largest charity, of unselfish
devotion to every cause that 1 makes
Io. ti uplitl o linial souls.
These attrihites o' elharacter. that
Imlade him a lion for tile right and an
;nemy without guile to all that was
wrong and base, may not have been
known and appreciated by every one,
for Mr. Williamson, while fearless,
wxas not hoisteronls and noisy and was
iot. could not have been fully under
.tood, except by those who knew him
intimately and asstociated with him
elosely. It, was my privilege and joy
to work olosely with him during the
ten years of his ministry here as pas
tor of Aveleigh Presbyterian church,
and it was long since a conviction
with ine that as minister, Mr. Wil
lianison fully netithe requirements that
should obt ain-hetween paster and peo
ple. Ile was always to be depended
ilpo in i his relationship to the Sun
lay school, not simply dropping in
01casionally. but attenling with re
-tlarity every sess-;ion except when
h611.1-it-le 1 absencev or illness. His
4Y.alty to the other activities of the
oliurch were not less marked.
As a weacher', a sermionzer, Mr.
Williamson was at. his best, and he
always seemetd to me that lie loved to
Preach, which lie did with accurate
preparation and unquestioned une
tion and force. lie always declared
the 'full counsel of God,'holding up
to his hearers the inimitable example
of the Christ whom he loved and wor
shiled. Mr. Williamson's preaching
was never tinctured with false doe
triine, nor marred with the "modern
eriticisms''-he was absolutely ortho
dox, holding aloft and presenting with
:It tiie;s wonderful force and beauty,
lit hianner of the Cr'oss.
liis sermnons were tipliftinlg and in
spiring and the convictions which
Itey undlloubtedlly cr'eated in the minds
fhIns l Stisenes will surely~ Iinger' as a
benison1 andl i ctn t i ve to hiigher and
:mreor l ivini. Morei'~ than thIiis, lie was
a Ia ir man and just and netver (chose
the. advantage which a right position
1sntaanteedl to uise it to) the unditoinig
1 have served on many occasions
with Mr. Williamson at Presbytery
and Synotd andit felt a thr ill of p)ridle
::ot inf requienitly whien his c'ounsels
were found to be the best and to be
respected and followed by his broth
On points of eccle'siastical law and
evidence he was unsurpassed as a
P'resbyter. Ile was a loving parent
and devoted husband and father, an
ea1rnest chr'istian, a pulic spirited
cit/izon and the embodiment of hion
esty in its strictest sense. May I not
say, Alas! Alas! that one of his type
could not longer be sp)ared to his fam
ily, his lar'gc circle of frends and ad
tmiers anid to the church which he
se'rved so fithI ifully.
