[For the Messenger.
The Re-Union at CarmeL.
The pupils of thke Carmel High
School (Limited) taught a few
years ago at Carmel Presbyterian
Church, in Pickens county, by the
Rev. H. McLees. had a re-union
on the 26th of July, at the Church,
which was a most pleasant and
enjoyable affair.
The p~ublic exercises were open
ed in the Church at 11 o'clock, a.
mn. by prayer by the Rev. Mr. Mc
Lees and the singing of that ap
propriate and feeling song, enti
tled, "The Old School H-ouse on
the Hill." Trhe chairman then in
troduceed as the first speaker, Maj.
'r. H. Russell, who delivered the
welcoming address in an earnest
and becoming manner. Thien fol
lowed other addresses by W. HI.
Knight and W. K,. Boggs. These
gentlemen acquitt d themselves
handsomely. Mr. Chesley Smith
was then called out, but graceful..
ly declined. Mr. J. R. Hlagood.
Editor of the Easley MEssENGE~R,
was then called out and dlelivered
one of the best impromntu addcres
es on the subject of Education, to
which we ever listened. We could
not attempt even a synopsis of his
speech, but two points which he
made, are deserviug of more than
a passing notice. The first was
his touching and feeling allusions
to the former history of this neigh -
borhood, in an educational point
of view, under the guidance of that
revered and honored preacher and
educator of youth, the Rev. J. Le
land Kennedy. He needed no
marble monument to comemorate
his memory, because it was im
pressed upon the hearts of an ap
preciative people, never to be ob
literated. The next leading point
was, that however extensive the
acquirements of the student in the
curriculum of his or her literary
studies it uight be, and probably
would be forgotten, in the whirl of
business life, but the moral im
pressions which were made upon
the plastic beauty of childhood
and youth, in the school room, and
around the parental fireside, would
live and freshen, and grow in af
ter-life, to gladden the world with
its rich and glorious purity.
But the crowning effort of the
occasion was the admirable speech
of the Rev. H. McLees. If it were
possible to re-produce it, it is wor
thy of a permanent record in the
educational archives of the coun
try. We will not undertake even a
skeleton of the address, but there
were two ideas brought out, which
in the present educational exigen
cies of the country are of two much
importance to be omitted. One
was compulsory education, and
the other was the ultilitarian idea
to pervade all our educational in
stitutions. from the very door of
the common school up to the por
tals of the highest institutions of
learning in the county. He aited
the Cornell University of Now
York as his model, with perhaps
but one other institution of the
kind in the United States. P re
the student is required along with
his literary acquirnients, to prose
cute some handicraft, under the
tutilage of skilled experts, it may
be in the department of mechan
ics, agriculture, or manufactur
ing, or any of the industrial pur
suits of the country, so that when
a student left the corridors of Cor'
neil University as a graduate, he
had the highest endlorsemuent that
he was capable of adlding to the
productive wealth of the country
in some of those dlepartments. IHe
thought the profession were al
ready over-crowded, two lawyers
to a Court House ought to be
enough, and of doctors, every year
added to the number of those who
eked a scant subsistence,while the
industrial occupations were being
overlooked to the detriment of the
best interests of the whole county.
After the close of this excellent
address, one hour wa-s assigned
for refreshments and dinner, and
the exercises of the dlay closed by
an exciting game of baseball. And
to crown the enjoyment of this
long-to-be remembered day, the
bounteous Giver of All 'Good,
poured out a refreshing shower of
rain to rerresh the parched crops.
