DR. CRO31EI AT 1,EXNGTON.
Delivers Splendid Literary Address
at P. C. I. Commencement.
News and Courier.
Lexington. May 23.-The commence
ment exercises of the Palmetto Col-!
lege institute came to a close today,
with the exercises by the members of
the graduating class and the literary
address by Dr. Geo. B. Cromer, of
Newberry. On account of an import
ant engagement in Columbia, Dr.
Cromer delivered his address pre
vious to the orations by the members
of the graduating class. Dr. Cromer
was introduced by Col. J. Brooks
Wingard. who, in a brief address, paid
a tribute to the gentleman from:
Newberry. .Dr. Cromer is a most de
lightful speaker, gifted in the use of
words, and his masterful address was!
well received by the audience, which
filled the school building to its ut
-"A Man, a Maid and a Monster;"
Dr. Cromer used these three subjects
from which to draw a moral. First,
he took up Casper Hauser, who at the
age of 16 was merely an animal.
There are men, said he, who would
think that that they are independent;
that they can successfully get along'
without the aid of their fellows, edu
cation and social service; those who
believe this seldom ever leave the:
bottom. As an example of what edu
cation can do for those who try, Dr.
Cromer pointed to the case of Helen
Kellar, who, in his estimation, was
the most remarkable woman living
today. The example of this woman,
said he, forever puts to shame those
who cry out: "If I only had had a
chance." Stricken with fever at an,
early age, and deprived of her eye-;
sight, her tongue paralyzed, her hear
ing gone, nothing left but the scent
of smell and the power to feel, she
grasped the situation. What an in
spiration, said he, for every boy and
girl who lay claims to what they
would have done had they had a
As another illustration Dr. Cromer
spoke eloquently of the life of the late
Joshua Hudson, of Lancaster, who'
struggled for an education, finally
graduating from the UJniversity of
South Carolina. You can't give a man
education, you can't give a man char
e.cter; they are achievemenits, declar
ed the speaker. Education alone
merely gives power; education is the'
-liberation and direction of .power; the
highest possession that a man or a
woman can have is a high character,
a high moral character. He referred
to the honest builder of State house
in Columbia, who finding that there
was a defective rock in the founda
tion after the building had been erect
ed to a considerabl degree above the?
foundation, did his work over again.
Dr. Cromer urged thoroughnleSs as a
r,tepping stone to success and im-:
pressed thi-s fact upon the class.
SAt the conclusion of the address of
Dr. Cromer, the six graduates deliv
ered their orations and received their
diplomas. Thus came to a close the
comimenceen)t exercises of the P. C.
L. for 1911.
BLEASE AT LAURENS.
Governor Paying a Tisit 'to Editor
Thomas B. Crews.
Laurens, May 23.-Gov. Bleasel

coming over from Greenwood ex
pressly to visit Col. Thomas B. Crews

ly today the governor ascertained his
