Redeemer next Sunday:
11 a. m. The regular morning service.
The pastor will preach on the
subject, "Christ's Reversal of Human
Judgments." Observation and experience
show us that in regard to many
of the real serious subjects of life divine
judgment is the reverse of human
judgment, and we sometimes become
confused. In 1he 55th chapter
of Isaiah God says, "My thoughts are
not your thoughts, neither are your
ways my ways. For as the heav-ens
are higher than the earth, so are my
ways higher than your ways, and my
thoughts than your thoughts." No
less than five times in the gospel Jesus
practically uses The expression,
"Th-e last shall be first and the first
last." Tn this sermon at least four
practical and important subjects will
be presented in which Christ reverses
There will be good music.

The address to the graduates was
delivered by Dr. D. D. Wallace, professor
of History and Economies, of
Woff.ord college. He chose as his
subject, "Education for Citizenship."
The speaker spoke at length along the
lines of general education in all the
walks of life, pointing out its importance,
after which he narrowed down
to the keynote thought of his address
?That education makes a good citizen.
He showed how the duty is placed
upon every people and State to educate
its citizens. Said the apeaker,
take away ten thousand of'the brightest
minds from our country; men
who can see ahead and conceive, who
can organize and pui their ideas into
operation, and you reduce our people
to a perfect state of intellectual
paralysis. He spoke of the education
condition in the Southland, and then
bringing closer home, within our own

bottom in educational progress, giving
only thrc# dollars per capita to
the people. He made an earnest appcal
for a more varied and systematic
system of education in South Carolina.
His- address was concluded
with a glowing tribute to democracy
and its father, and an earnest appeal
that the people of this State awaken,
and go forward, and take their place
among the. ranks with other States
and nations that have adopted a
compulsory educational system.
His address was a most excellent
and masterly one, and was thoroughly
enjoyed by the large audience with
which he was greeted.

A SCHOLARLY ADDRESS.
Delivered by Prof. ( lias. >V. Kent
Tiiesd.1) Evening in Opera
The address to the liteerarv societies
of Newberry college, was deliverer!
Tn-psdav tvenine in the opera
house by Prof. Chas. \V. Kent, Ph.D.,
of the University of Virginia. The
address was scholarly and delivered
with force and effect by the distinguished
A synopsis would scarcely do th.-e- i
speaker jus:ice, and only a brief out- j
line is given. Professor Kent was j
presented by Professor E. B. Setzler, i
of Xewberrv college, who did post
graduat? work at the University of
After responding to the introduction j
nr.d navinsr a tribute of friendship to !
Newberry college and its representative
wi ll whom he had been familiar,
Dr. Kent announced as his theme,
"Educational Efficiency versus Education
He gave a resume of the reports
made by the masters of Oxford colleges
with reference to the Rhodes
scholars from the United Stares and
then supplemented this indictment by
showing that very much the sam; i
conclusions had been reached by the j
German investigation of our education
in America. The counts in the
joint indictment are that American
education does not 1 ad to thorough
ness and accuracy; that it does not
result in adequate mental discipline;
that it fails to create in the siudent i
the willingness and ability to assay'
the long and difficult task; and that
it does not inspire the student \vi:h a !
fervent zeal and ard nt enthusiasm for ,
After commenting fully on these j
charges the speaker contended that!
thr effort to mest this indicrment on
the part of the colleges by differentiating
the course that led to college
from those that led to business was
an error for exactly the same kind of j
training, th'ough not necessarily in
the same branches, was needed for
the prospective scholar and the prospective
man of affairs. The business
man desires of the young man that
enters his employ (1) willingness and
ability to learn, (2) personal interest
and zest in- his work, (3) thoroughness
and accuracy in :the assigned task,
(4) and energy and industry in the
prosecution of a task, however long
or difficult, until it is finished.
The college professor desires of
the student coming under his care, (1) !
thoroughness and accurary in the
studies hitherto pursued, and the |
spirit of thoroughness and accurary j
in all work undertaken, (2) mental
Jr* f n a f yo im'r> rr o r-> /-3 / ?/?. m _
UlOlsipillit'j o 1 Li CLLL U. V_ W-li^ _
inand of all the mental powers, (3) j
power of sustained attention to dif- J
ficult and disagreeable task, (4) en-1
thusiasm, or vibrant and vital inter-!
est in the new tasks, that shall give j
a zest and delight to their pursuit.
After insisting that in essence the
training for college and business is I
one and tha: the requirements of each !
are just what in the judgment of for- j
eign critics we are not getting, Dr. j
Kent raised the pertinent questi'on j
why we were not finding in our educational
system just what we ought
to expect to get out of it?
His answer was in substance as follows:
that the lack of thoroughness
and accuracy is due to the inherent
restlessness of American life which
unless controlled leads to fickleness,
variableness, and superficiality; to
our desire for visible, tangible results
marked in education by promotions,
diplomas, graduations and public notice;
to inherent haste -with its accompaniments
o* short cuts time saving
devices a*id record-breaking
He closed by pointing out that it
vas still possible, perhaps more
readily in the small college than elsewhere
to settle down to calm, quiet,
unhurried but uninterrupted and
thorough work, particularly if the
college is willing to forego extensiveness
for intensiveness and set itself
unflinchingly to undertake nothing >
more than it can do faithfully and j
fully. This means, especially where
the college is crammed for means and
impoverished in equipment a loyal
devotion on the part of students, faculty,
and aluir ni bom of hardship j
ami therefore a willingness to attack ;
dull and hard problems with a certain !
joy of conquest. It means, in fine, to j
count display of no avail in compari-1
son with efficiency; and popular acclaim
of no worth compared with permanent

The banquet was served In elegant

the duties of the position with
