Address-Commencemlut Day
Exercises.
'the annual commencement of New.
berry College was brought to a close
with the commencement day exercises
on Wednesday morning, when four young
vomen and nineteen young men received
their diplomas.
From every standpoint the commen
cement season has been a success, and
.he friends of the college have been in
spired to renewed activity and greater
efforts in her behalf. The actionof the
Alumni Association practically assuring
the erection of the long-needed gymnas
ium at an early date, the establishment
of a scholarship by the large gradua
l.Mon class, the fact that the erection of
enwbuilding for recitation rooms
nd society halls is assured- all these
acts, and many more evidences of new
fe, have made the annual commence
ment just passed an event of great
moment in the history of the institu
tion.
The city was full of visitors, and very
large audiences attended all the exer.
cises.
Commencement Day.
' The second largest graduation class
in the history of the college, twenty
three young people just commencing
the active duties of the larger life,
strong in hope for the future, eager to

Dr. Cromer in addressing the grad
uating class after conferring the de
grees, said, inter alia: "You are gein
out now wvith your blood tingling an
bounding in your veins. But tomorro,
these flowers will have withered, an
in a few (lays you will begin to fir
that not all the old fogies are old fogie:
that not all the young blood( and tU
vigorous blood, not all the absence<
old1 fogyism is to be found in the undeo
graduates of a college. You wvill fir>
that there is a dusty way. By the wva:
I observe that your class motto is, "19
palm without dust." And yet we se
our best handkerchiefs flicking tI
dust from our p)atent-leather shoe
Find out as soon as you can find out tI
thing that you ought to do next, at
when you have detnrmined what y<
ought to do next, do it. The end<
edlucation is moral efficiency. Life aft<
all is made up of relationship and ada
tation, finding out our place and pu
ting ourselves in that place, doing fait
fully the wvork wec are called to do.
"In suridering these ties today, v
have less regret because wo have;
much hope, because we believe you a
going out with high p)romnise-of go
things for you, because we believe th
you will (10 whatever you are called to
seriously and p)romptly and earnest
and punctually. 1 have little pation
for the man who does not keel) I
appointment, w~ho has not something
do, and wvho does not earnestly a
steadfastly do it at the appointed tin
in the best possible way."
During the morning the audience lI
orally bestowed applause and flowei
and the stage, before the exercit
were over, had become one great mou
of roses and sweet peas and magnoli
and nasturtiums and all the beauti:
flowers which mark the approach of the
glad commencement season.

;Bynum, W. H. Wallace, and M. A. Car
lisle.
The medal was presented to Mr. Riser
;by Hon. A. F. Lever. Congresmran
Lever congratulated all the young ge.n
- tlemen, saying the contest had been
unusually good. He hoped for the suc
cessful one, who had been awarded the
decision by a unanimous vote, that this
would be only the beginning for him as
-an orator. The taking of this mcdal
must not be the ending, he said.
- As Mr. Lever said in his presentation
-speech, the contest was unusually good.
All the young gentlemen acquitted them
felves with credit, and received the close
'attention of the large audience.
- The Alumni Address.
The annual address before the Alumni
Association was delivered on Tuesday
a morning by Mr. Jno. R. Leavell, of
Greenwood, who graduated from New
berry College in the class of 1881.
The exercises were opened with
prayer by the Rev. P. H. E. Derrick.
g The speaker was introduced by Hon.
d Arthur Kibler, President of the Alumni
V Association.
d Mr. Leavell announced as his theme for
d the occasion, "A Study of the Times."
' Trusts, strikes, the differences between
e capital andl labor, are some of the most
fimportant of the problems which con
front us today, said the speaker. All
d must be adjusted in accordance with
,the most advanced ideas of right and
0 justice.
I The speaker first took up a study of
e4 the politIcal situation. Money is power -
-so influential that courts and legislatore
e are swept before it even as chaff befor<
d the wind. The final result is an eterna
u fight between capital and labor, making
the rich richer and the poor poorer, grindi
er ing into the dust with its Iron heel th<
P- laboring classes, who are she mainsta:
t- and support of thisanation. If our states
h-men are to shape the destiny of thil
State so as to add to her strength an<
ie glory they must be men of high moral
so ity, having the highest respect for th<
re moral law. Along with our ra'pid stridei
xl in commercial and industrial progress
at we need the moral and intellectual de
10 velopment, which alone can give hono
ly and glory to our nation.
ee The speaker next took up a study o
his the physical view, saying that there cai
to be no objection to the study of p)hysica
nd culture in our colleges, so long asi
e; does not become the principal study
When athletic exercises interfere wit
b- the students' routine work, however
.s, they should be confined to more narro'
es limits.
nd The speaker strongly condemned somi
,as points in the State's common scho<
rul educational system, aying- that th
State is delegating to herself powers
which are not properly hers. I do not
believe, said Mr. Leavell, that the
common school system is developing
that high character which the State
needs and demands.
Are we not building on a dangerous
foundation? Are we not aiding the ad
vaicement of infidelity and agnosticism
by a failure to impart religious instruc
tion? Are we not rearing men whose
knowledge of foot-ball and boat racing
will be infinitely greater than their
knowledge of the science of life and the
management of government?
Gentlemen of the Association, I ap
peal to you to step out from the old
methods, forms and inactivities and put
forth greater effort for the advance
ment of Christian education. You who
have sat at the feet of Gamaliel and
learned, do all in your power to build
up this correct system of education, for
on its success largely depends the future
welfare of this State. On its success
depends the highest development of the
moral character of our citizens-their
best welfare and highest happiness.
The Literary Address.
The address before the Literary So
cieties was delivered on Tuesday eve
ning by President Henry L. Smith, of
Davidson College, N. C. The speaker
reviewed the wonderful achievements
of the century that has passed, and the
bright outlook for still more wonderful
achievements in the hundred years to
come. Dr. Smith is a brilliant thinker
and an interesting talker, and he re
ceived the close and undivided atten
tion of his large audience on Tuesday
night.
The exercises were opened with
prayer by the Rev. R. E. Livingaton.
The speaker was introduced by Dr.
Geo. 13. Cromer.
Dr. Smith said that the century so
recently swept away by the flood of
years was the most memorable history
ever recorded.- It was marked by in
vention and achievement, the emanci
pation of the individual mind and the
conquest of nature's secrets. He had
decided tonight, if possible, to lift the
veil and show some of the wonderful
inventions of the coming years. He
had chosen as his subject "Some of the
Dreams of Modern Scientists." What
are the practical scientists of today
dreaming of?
One hundred and twenty-five years
ago men began to learn something of
nature and from that year to this there
have been coming to light every few
years wonderful inventions which have
changed entirely the manner of life
every one flashing its wonderful bril
liance into the intellectual world, and
then a quiet period succeeding. But I
tell you, during the last twenty-five
years these wonders have not come
singly, but in battalions. What will be
next? I have decided tonight to lift
the veil for you and to speculate upon
what a thousand dreamers in a thou
sand laboratories are working upon. I
am going to confine myself to four or
five so as to show you their far reach
ing significance and the difficulties ir
the way of their achievement.
The first of these, wvhich wvill revolu
tionize the mode of living of ever)
family in the civilized world is a cheap,
durable and efficient storage battery.
The speaker clearly explained the con.
struction and uses of the storage bat.
tery-the running of electric fans, au
tomobiles, etc. It is the most feasibb
power for any vehicle. In a grea'
many respects, it is an ideal means o:
propelling vehicles over the ground
The direanm of a thousand experimenter
is to make a light storage battery- -o
wood, or celuloid, or similar substanc<
-one in which there is no waste, an<
which will give back at least nine
tenths of the power p)ut into it. The mal
who invents this will speedily become;
multi-millionaire. Two-thirds of th
locomotives will go out of commission
We will have light, incredibly swif
cars propelled by the storage battery
Another thing that would change th
whole face of civilized society. Th
one great nuisance in a city is a horsE
The horse is at the foundation of hal
the ills of civilized life, and th
storage battery would banish the hors<
The next dIreanm of the modlern scier
tist is the manufacture and productic
of cold light At p)resent we can
make light without making heat. I
an ordinary lamp you pay about 98<
99 cents for heat. that you d'. not wai
in order to pay one or two cents for tI
light whlich you (do wvant. Thler.e is su<(
a thing as cold light. Around the Soul
Pole tonight there are millions of mnila
of ice and snowv lighted by t'he Auro:
Borealis. That's cold light. If y<
catch a lightning hug here tonight, I
guarantee you wvon't be burned. Th
is cold light. So we see there is such
thing in the world as cold light. Nc
for m.n astounding calculation: T
amount of energy given off by an or<
nary candIle is twelve foot p)ounds
-minute. One p)ound of coal burn
gives 12,000,000 foot poundls of ener2
If I could convert all that p)oundl of c<
into light with~out heat I would have
mue'i light as is given by 1,000,0
Scandles in one minute.
The third dream is the p)erfection
- jwireless telegraphy. Dr. Smith e
r plained the workings of wireless tel
graphy. It is the very same in t
f Iet:ier that noise andl the hearing of it.a
in the air. The objection to it is that a
.1I signal will affect any receiver wherev
t it may be. The miesages interfere wi
.one another. Another great objecti
h Iis that you can't send messages vt
, far. In 1894 we could send a wireb
v mespage only 7 or 8 feet. In 1901 M;
coni sent messages across the Atlan
e ocean. Let that continue for a f
>l years and one difficulty will have b<
e donne nanay with. The only way
difficulty of the confusion of messages
will ever be solved is the invention of
a receiver so adjusted that it will re
spond only to one note. If those two
difficulties could be removed then inag
ination fails to picture how knowledge
could. be' transferred all around and
about us.
Another great dream more important
than any of them' or all of them put to
gether, perhaps. What mankind wants
more than anything else is power. That
is the great desideratum of the human
race. And yet with all the clamoring
for it we are living in an ocean of
power. The human race is almost dy
ing for power, and yet we are floating
on a Amazon of it and have not yet
learned to dip a bucket into it. This
great power is the heat from the sun
light, which now is only wasted. Touse
this power is one of the dreams that is
beckoning on science. There is enough
power from the heat of the sun shine
on one acre of ground to run ten cotton
mills of 500 horse power each-about
one horse power to the square yard of
sunlight.
I have one more dream - the artificial
manufacture of food. With all the
things that chemistry can make, it
can't make food. From the planting
of the wheat it takes seven or eight
months to make a biscuit. We take
the wheat and mix it with a little water
and other things and say we made that
biscuit. It's not so, nature made it by
a laborious process. The wonderful
thing about it is that when you unmake
that biscuit it seems a very simple
thing. Let the biscuit stay on the
stove too long and you will have water
in the air and charcoal on the stove.
The same is true of any kind of vege
table or fruit you ever saw in your life,
and if you will give me one and a quarter
tons of charcoal and a ton of water,
and show me how to put them together,
I will give you two and a quarter tons
of food. The only trouble is toput it to
gether. The same is true of sugar, of
butter. It is not the bread bills that are
breaking your back, you say. It is the
butcher's bill. If you will give me 97
pounds of charcoal and water and three
pounds of nitrogen, 'and show me how
to put them together, I will give you
100 pounds of good, lean beef. Nature
takes a long time to make beef--it has
seemed to me sometimes that she has
taken an age. That is the dream of
our modern chemists-- -to learn how to
take those simple things and put them
together. If we had a chemis.t with
sense enough --but they haven't got it -
to put together the boundless water
supply and the boundless charcoal sup
ply, and the boundless nitrogen supply
of the world-all the problems of life
will have been solved. This dream is
not unreasonable, and I would not be
surprised bofore I die to eat artificial
and nourishing food out of. a chemical
laboratory. .
The speaker said this morning he in
tendd to make a hortatory address,
but he wanted to give them something
to think of other than the commonplace
-to get them interested ,in some of the
movements which will turn the world
over.
Now I hor" will go home witi;
somnetI.' nk about and witl
sonr ' about.
I w. ., . 'usion, especially t<
congratulate- young people begin
ning life tomorrow, to congratulati
them upon stepping out into the work
in an age so full of progress, achieve
ment, inspiration and stimulus to thi
-young man. Never' was' there a tim<
since the world was made when the out
look for the young man was so full o:
inspiration as it is today, and I want t4
congratulate these young men tha
they are facing the future when iti
so full of hope.

Trains on the Southern Now Runnint to
Columbia and Transfer Being Aade
on'C., N. & L.
For the first time since Sunday New
berry yesterday received an early morn
ing mail direct from Columbia and the
lower part of the State. The Southern's
early passenger between Charleston
and Greenville got in, and got in only a
very few minutes late.
Owing to the wash-outs on the South
ern track between Alston and Columbia,
and a break on the C., N. & L. trestle
just this side of Columbia, Newberry
and points above on these two lines had
no direct railroad connection with the
lower part of the State after Sunday
night. The Southern's track went only
a few minutes after the passage of the
afternoon passenger going into Colum
bia and the C., N. & L. trestle followed
suit about three o'clock Monday morn
ing.
On Monday no mail from the lower
prt of the State could be received.
On Tuesday Monday's mail from
Charleston was received around by
Augusta and Greenwood, reaching
here at 3 o'clock in the afternc :n, and
the C., N. & L. connected with a hack
line from Columbia to Irmo and brought
in late in the afternoon Tuesday's mails
from Columbia.
Owing to the flood situation, this was
the only service obtainable until yester
day morning when the Southern was
able to begin running its passengers on
regular schedule time.
THM. C., N. & L.
The break on the C., N. & L. trestle
was more aerious than was at first
thought, and it will be tomorrow at the
earliest before this road will be able to
operate a train through to Columbia.
The hack line which has been in opera
tion, however, will be shortened, and
instead of stopping at Irmo, as hereto
fore, the trains will run to the old Salu
da dam, just three miles west of Co
lumbia, connecting with a hack line at
that point. An-extra was run yester
day and will be run again today, leav
ing the Saluda dam at. 10 o'clock in the
morning viad making the regular con
nections for the up-country. The rega
lar schedule will be operated on the re
turn.
It. is reported from Columbia that
"The condition with the Columbia,
Newherry and Laurens is grave. Not
only is the bridge impassable, but the
whole course of the river has been so
changed at. that point. that a much more
substantial structure must replace the
damaged and ruined trestle work. The
receding waters effected the damage to
this bridge and the island was almost
washed away. Consequently instead of
a trestle a new bridge must be built.
Mr. Surnmersett thinks that the damage
ctm beleplaced temporarily and trains
be runing by Saturday."

Dear Sir: I,et ' have a !.Ill private
talk by ourselves oin lsinei' nohody
else, pleise, read.
You Want to kiow how ito io a cleapI
job of painting, and hav it 0ok good .
Here it is: The cheapest t1liing there is I
in the Vay of a good-lookilig job say
nothiig a0out. its DVilg good is )evoe:
the regular thing in llievoe.
The reason is: )evoe gio'S furtlhe'
than anythilg else. Lead-and-oil is
good-looking; don't go So far :11141 costs
more. 'T'le other paints ale mlore 01'
less short in one way ol' ait her: doll't
go so far and costs nore 1hall I)evov.
I)evoe costs least of all; you doIn't.
