COLLEGE GRADUATES, "FARE
YOU FORTH AND FAREWELL."
(Continued from page one.)
ington. The presentation was made
by Dr. A. J. Bowers, professor of
Greek, and he stated that Mr. R. W.
Houseal and Mr. Grady H. Hipp, of
Newberry, had made the race so close
that all of them deserved a medal, but
that, taking in the entire course, Mr.
Hendrix had a small percentage to
Mr. Jno. M. Kinard, of Newberry,
offered a gold medal to that fresh
man who has the best standing for
admission in the sophomore class.
This medal was presented by Prof. 0.
B. Cannon, and he stated that it took
very careful calculation to tell who
of the following were entitled to the
medal: Miss Gladys Chappell, Messrs.
Geo. B. Setzler, Vernon Wheeler,
Clemson M. Wilson and Jesse E. Bal
lentine, but after a careful calcula
tion of percentage it was decided
that Mr. Ballentine had won the med
al and it was presented to him. -
The faculty furnished a scholarship
to that student who prepared during
the session the best composition or
article for the Stylus. The commit
tee to pass upon these compositions
awarded the scholarship to Mr. C. P.
Barre, of Prosperity, the announce
ment being made by President Harms.
President Harms then announced
that the board had conferred
the degree of master of arts
upon Prof. W. E. Black, of Lexington,
and the degree of doctor of divinity
upon Rev. J. A. Sligh, of this county.
The diplomas were then presented
to the graduating class. The bacca
laureate address was made by Presi
dent Harms. In bidding God speed
to the members of the class of 1910,
Dr. Harms said:
"Fare You Forth and Farewell."
"This is. a day to you and us of
mingled pride and pathos. The time
has come for parting and parting
words. Today you take regretful
S- leave of the halcyon happy days of
college life. You pass out from the
protecting shelter of your alma mater
to the storm and struggle which are
going to test the fibre of your woman
hood and manhood. You have today
but a half realization of the sadness
of this occasion. It is said that dis
tance. lends enchantment to the view,
but, my friends, the gathering dis
tance of the years that come and put
you ever further from the dear o'ld
college and its joys, will bring yvou
an enchantment which wiP be tinged
with a .nost cei-tain twang of hunger
for a pleasure that has perished, and
a fellowship that has, fled. Year by
year you are going to realize as you
can not now, what it means to cut
the moorings and thrust forth your
craft upon those unknown and tn
tried seas, and out there in the strug
gle, in what Goethe calls "the stream
of life," I am sure, unless I have mis
fudged you badly, that you will lift
up a prayer for your old college
which has taught you the goodness
of knowledge and tried to show you
the goodness of God.
"And yet, regretful though it be,
this is a proud hour in your life. The
taste of high achievement is In your
soul. You have finished something,
you have struggled and succeeded,
and today that old college yonder
crowns you with its honors. Four
years ago you knocked at the doors
of old Newberry and were admitted.
In the then dim distance you looked
forward to this time and between the
far-off prize and you there stretched
a rough uncertain road. But you set
your face with resolution to gain
the goal and this, morning is the
proudest hour of your life. You have
won the crown of duty well and nobly
done and knowing you young men
and women as I do, I do not doubt
that the college is adding strength
and honor and distinction to itself In
placing its approval on you today. We
doubt not you will be true men and
women, doing deeds of service to your
world and credit to yourselves and
honor to the institution which sends
"I lay ,.upon you three requests:
Keep your courage; look danger in
the face, and do not blink. Write on
your doors the saying, wise and old,
"Be bold, be bold, and everywhere be
Be not too bold; yet better the excess
Than the defect; better the more than
Better like Hector on the field to die
Than like a perfumed Paris turn and
"As you go out today keep your
courage. Make couiage your com
panion. Keep your promises. The
man whom the world delights to hon
or is the man who keeps his word,
who honors his own word as his
God's. Practice truth speaking.
Blessed is the man whose word is as
good as his bond and as accurate in
the record above. Keep your prom
ises to man and keep your\ promises to
God. Complete the promise that you
leave with us today that you will
scorn thie base and seek the high and
clean and lofty. For all clean-minde<
men ~applaud the bard of Avon, wh4
"Be these juggling friends no mor
That palter 'with us in a double sense
That keep the word of promise to oui
And break it to our tope."
"And, lastly, keep your faith in Go<
"Give no place to cinicism.
"Whatsoever things are true, what
soever things are honest, whatsoeve:
things are pure, whatsoever thing
are lovely, whatsoever things are o
good report; if theie be any virtui
and if there be any praise, think oi
I these things."
"Write men's faults upon the sand
and inscribe their virtue on the tab
lets of enduring memory.
"Finally be loyal .to your alma mat
er. Never dream that any price yoi
paid can be commensurate with thi
inspiration and the influence she ha
bred into your bones. Be loya
alumni of Newberry college.
"Fare forth, then, keeping fait]
with yourself, 'with your brethren
and with' your God.
"Fare you forth, dear young men an<
"Fare you forth and farewell.

The Wonian's Tordc
The pains from which
many women suffer every
month are unnecessary.
It's not safe to trust to
strong drugs, right at the
time of the pains.
Better to take Cardul
for a while, before and
after, to strengthen the
system and cure the cause.

the scientific, the right way.
