Mit. Sherod Reeves who presides
over the soda fount tit Dr. Dukes, has
a peculiar tact of making the best
Bodu, ami of dispensing it in a most
captivating way. These hot days wben
locals are out of sight, and our um
brella out in the roof, it is refreshing
to see Sherod, and especially when his
grip i?ou the'throttle valve of his soda
generator; At the beck of his hand he
calls fruit from every clime.
Base Bau..?The second game of
base ball, between the Orange and
Swamp Angel clubs, both of Orange
burg, was played on Thursday, June
25th. The game on this occasion, was
without doubt the most interesting ever
played in our bustling iittic "City of
the Edisto." And while neither of the
clubs, lay any pretentious to the dis
tinctions, which belong, properly, to
professional clubs, yet, neither seems
disposed to shrink from the test which
shall decide the championship of the
State, whether the contest be between
themselves and the celebrated Caroli
nas who hail from our "City by the
Sea," or otherwise. The game above
mentioned was played in two hours
and fifteen minutes, at the cud of which
nine inning having been played, tho
score stood 29 runs for Swamp Angels
and 27 runs for the Oranges. The
players on boLh side can with perfect
propriety, lay considerable claim to
Educational.? Our community
may bo proud of its educational advan
tages, and a short visit to the interme
diate examination of the pupils of tho
Orangoburg Academy which took
place on Monday and Tuesday last,
confirmed an opinion of the thorough
ness of instruction pursued by tho
principal Jas. S. Hey ward Esq. A
large and appreciative attendnuco of
visitors were present from 9 a. m.,
until 1 p. in. eaehday. Tho examina
tion of the various classes in the Eng
lish brnnches,Matliciuatics,and classics
was made by Mr. Hcyward, and we
were impressed with tho sifting and
analytic system ho employed to test
tho proficiency of his scholars. The
scanning and review of the studies was
general, and not confined to particular
recitations which left the philosophy
of the various brauches untouched,
and was impartial withal.
Mr Hey ward requests that we make
honorable mention of Masters T, O. S.
Dibble, W. L. Izlar and J. E. Glover.
Misses Moilie V. Lovcl and Mary J.
Salley. It being only the intermediate
examination, no prizes were awarded.
Tho prize (final) examination will take
place at tho end of tho term, which
c'oscs with January next (1875). The
Academy will be opened again at the
J Fair Building on Tuesday the first day
j of September next, and Mr. II begs
that if possible his patrons will have
their children in attendance on that
day with new registers ready to com
pete vigorously for the coming prizes.
Mr. Mkluciiamp's School.?As
was announced' Mr. Mellichamp pro
posed at the end of his school session,
to gratify his pupils with au exhibition,
to which tho public were invited. At
o'clock every inch of room in the
Elliott Hall waf filled, and many were
prevented by tho crowd from getting
in. The hall was neatly festooned
with flowers and green, and at the
chairman's stand tho motto 'Excelsior'
in silvered letters shone out. The
school occupied the front chairs next
to the stage. The girls were tastefully
dressed in white, with crowns upon
their head.-, and the toui ensemble of
the children was a holiday scene.
Mayor Moseley, Mcsssrs. J. F. Izlar,
Samuel Dibble and J. A. Hamiltion
occupied seats upon the stage with tho
preceptor, and Mr. G. S.Shirer looKcd
generally to thecomfortofthenudicnec.
Mr, Henry Kohti with his amateur
hand furnished a pleasant treat of
music. Tho onb r of exercises was
opened with a modest ami well ren
dered address by one of the pupils Mr
J. J. II. Stoudcnmire, then followed
the "Way to John Smith's" by Masters
.1 D Andrews und E T Boznrd ; both
did well, but we failed to lind John
Smith s house. Miss M F Doyle ren
dered Col. O'llara's "Confederate
dead" with taste. "The. two robbers"
by Masters W B Lightfoot and G M
Sislrituk, was represented as well as
the age ami capacity of the boys could
effect, but it was a specimen of compo
sition for riper years. "Children's
wishes" by Misses Dora J Williams,
Minnie Rich, Jessie Mellichamp, as
sisted by Masters L Ransdnle and G
M Sistrunk was prettily got ofT. J C
Ransdale as the "Little Speaker" did
very well for a littlo fellow. "The
shape of tho Earth" by Masters J D
Andrews, G J Dexter and ET Bozard,
was"received with hearty laughter by
the audience. Master L Rn.nedn.le re
cited "Speak the Truth" with much
ease. "Bad News" by Masters Ellis
Sbirer and Elliott Straus was though
simple, a piece that required more
drill. Miss Minnio Rich was quite the
"School girl of the period." Miss
Maggie Dukes was a "Wonderful
Scholar" and with the assistance of
Miss Fannie McNamara and Robert
Dukes did her part well. Master
Willie Dukes "Oration on tho law"
was the signal for a hearty burst of
laughter. "Fashionable lies" by Miss
M F Doyle, Dora J Williams and J C
Raasdalc, was decided to be a gem
performance. Robert Dukes said
"What I Know" veiy well. Miss CR
Tucker gave good expression to the
poetic selection "Excelsior." "The
School master abroad" was very well
acted by Masters Clark, Dukes, Reed,
Lightfoot, Zeigler, Dexter and Bow
man. "Braiding Straw" by Misses
Rich and Williams was very well done.
Miss Fannie McNamara's "Little
mixturo'wus a medly which she handled
commendably. The 'Blue and Gray "by
Miss C R Tucker was given with good
expression. "The Dehnte" by fourteen
of tho school was exhaustive on mental
philosophy, as the subject under dis
cussion did not come up ; We recog
nized in all the boys a familiarity with
the burlesque, but Masters Andrews,
Dexter, Clark arid Bozard did finely.
'Bring flowers' was our favorite, Misses
Doylo, Williams and Riph all recited
charmingly. 'The Epicure' by Masters
Cannon and Andrews was well dispos
ed of. Miss Doyle gave in her happy
style the best of advice "Don't run in
debt." The "letter writer" by Misses
Reeves and Rich was an avcrogo piece.
Mr. Stoudenmire'8 ""Voyage of life"
was delivered in good style and effect.
"Irish courtesy" by Masters Andrews
and Bozard was very. good.
The followed the presentation of
prizes, for tho best penmanship (re
garding ago of ?vriter) Miss Jessie
Mellichamp only seven years old.
Among tho boys J D Andrews took
prize for penmanship. The award of
this prize was left entirely to Mr Ham
ilton, and in deciding it he had refer
ence more to theages of competitors
thau the caligraphy.
Capt. Izlar, Mess. Hamiltou, Dibble
and tho teacher decided the contest of
elocution. Wo were not abloto attend
the general examination of the school
which took place on Friday, and was
attended by several visitors and the
parents of children. The prizes were
deli vered at request of Mr Meliichamp
by J. A. Hamilton Esq. For best
performance in elocution Misses Doyle
and Rich were considered a tie, and it
was decided to award prizes to both.
Among the boys J D Andrews took
first prize. These at the request of Mr.
Mellichamp were awarded by Samuel
Master Andrews with excellent style
gave the closing address, and this
pleasing and profitable exhibition
closed to the great credit of both pre
ceptor and pupils. The following
scholars won prizes for studies profi
ciency &c., for the session.
