COMMENCEMBT AT PROSPERITY.
Seven Young Ladies Receive Diplomas.
Addrss by lion. 0. B. Martin.
Seven young ladies .n Tuesday,inight
received their diplomas flom the plros
perity Graded School.
The commencement exercises of this
institution, Which began on Monday
night with interesting exercises by the
primary and grammar grades, mark the
close of a very successful session. The
enrolment, ha. been one hundred and
lifty. and the students show the excel
lent training given by Prof. Counts and
his assistant teachers, all of whom have
been re-elected for another session.
The exercises by the graduating class
were held on Tuesday night in the new
eity hall, and were attended by an audi
onee numbering probably seven hundred
persons. The building was tilled to its
capacity, and many could not ohain
seats and were standing inside and out
side. The address of the evening was
dolivered by Hlon. 0. It. Martin. State
Superintendent of Education.
The young lady graduates are: Misses
Anna Geiger, Efie Hawkins. lena .es
ter. Addie Werts, Ellen Werts. L.uey
Wheeler. 'lucile Wise, and Isohne
Wyche. Each of these spoke upxn a
subject assigned by the school. The
papers were all good, and diderndt Aith

I Ion 0 B Mart in spoke upon The R e'a
ti ofEducation toImvsperity. He tkI of
recent trips throughout South Cartlima.
saying that wherever he had been the
hammer and the saw and the piles of
brick gradually cianging into lvautiful
structures had impressed upon him one
word Prosperit. and it wa.s all the
more impressed on this occasion.
The prosperity of our State, and the
prosperity and advancement of any
State depend upon the education of the
children of the State. True it is a ques
tion whether proverity promotes edu
eation or education produces prosperity.
said the speaker. but he believed that
education always precedes prosperity.
The work for education of those who
have gone before measures the pros
perity we enjoy and the W-ork for edu
cation which we do now shall measure
the prosperity of the future.
Prof. Martin cited as an instance go
ing to prove the truth of this statement
the present material prosperity of New
Eigland. a section vith far less natural
advantages than the South. The New
England fathers put their money into
the brains of their children.
The speaker said he was glad to no
tice in many se :ions of South Carolina
new structures going up for educational
pur poses. As a simple business ;rop
sition. from a purely financial stand
point, those at the head of these enter
prises are displaying good business
judgment not taking into account the
far greater end- -the education of the
children. It is a sad state of atairs
that in South Garolina six out of seven
of the inhabitants are without an edu
cat ion. This wvouldl not be so bad could
lie other six read and write, but about
three out of this six have only the least
smatte-ing of the rudiments of an edu
eat ion. He believed it a fair statement
that over :ifty per cent. of the people
of South Carolina have not enough edlu
cation successfully to engage in any
business piursuit. The speaker severely
condIemned the sentiment of the older
peple which says that what was good
enough for us is good enough for our
The schools have not done enough for
the masses. They had tended too much
towar-ds the professional, lie had no
ticedl during t.he commencement season
a woeflul lack of boys on the platform.
The schools ought to train these boys.
If they are not suited for literary pur
suits they should be trained along in
dutstrial lines-fitted for the superin
tendlency or presidency of a cotton mill
or sonme such position. The schools need
to have a wider scopeC, to include the
training of the hand as well as the head.
Education is rnot only the training of
the mind. Our schools should (develop
more ingenuity. lHe was troubled by
the statement that only one man in
South Carolina out of 23,000 invents
some(t hing, while in Connecticutt one
moan out of every 930 invents some
thing. On the other hand, our peop)le
should support home talent.
The spe-aker referred to the wonder
fuil dle'elopmewnt and resources of the
roith what will1 all these amount to
unesour schoojls go forward? Our
future proAperity depends upon our
pr.o-nt efforts along educational lines.
