Tho close of a successful yo r at
Waslrngton and Lee Un voisity began
Sunday morning. The ? av was an

p-unted for ihe servi o, crowds o
people could bes'en weeding their
way across the well-kept campus to?
wards the Lee Memorial chapel in
which tho exeicises were held.
On accoun; of tho illness of Rev,
Thomas Hum?, D. D, LL. D, of the
University of North Carolina, who was
to preach the baccalaureate sermon, a
change had to made in the pi ograra.
Rev. C. Armand Miller, pastor of the
21st street Lutheran church, of New
York, occupied the morning hour and
delivered his address before the Young
Mea'ii Christian Ass elation. Ho was
introduced by Prosidmt Willum L.
Wilson, ond delivered a mngniiicent
addret-8 fi om the tubjict: "Your
young men shall see vi*ions," based on
Joel 2: 28
The exerci*es were opened by the
anthem, "Ihe Sun Shall bo ni M-*.re
thy Light by Day," followed by prayer
by Kev. G. B. Stockier, D. D., of the
Union Theological Seminary*, Hamden
Sidney, "Va. Tho old hymn, "How
Firm a Foundation," wus the j sung,
after which Dr. Stricklerread tho 145th
Psalm. The anthem, "Oh! Had I
Wings Like a Dove," was followed by
by the address.
Mr. .Miller said in part, "It is true
that young mon see visions. There is
a haze of glory about the glimpses
that youth, high-hearted, gladsome,
full of bright anticipations cast on tho
pathway of tho future, seeking to
p;etce tho clouds in which that path?
way loses itself.The difficulties and dan?
gers of the journey ho must tread, the
hindrances and obstacles that have
worn out the courage and overthrown
the labors of others who started out
with the same lof y aims and dauntless
energy, do not give the joung enthsiast
to-day tho least tremor of apprehen?
sion. They aro visions, roseate and
golden which tbe young man sees, as
he stands on the threshold and peers
out into tho dim unknown.'' The
preacher then p r tray od the high ideals
which every young man should set for
himself, avoiding the enticements that
lure him from tho path of honor and
rectitude. Closing he said : "And
a ter all is done there shall be the
beatific v'sion in which we shall ever
dwell. Tho vision of faith shall yield
to the vision of Bi^tt The clouds
shall a*l pass away and we shall soe
as wo are seen an I we shall know au
we are known, 'dhus wo shall see Him
is He is and the .'is on shall transform
us iuto His likeness. It may bc that
we shall behold Him in some unexpec?
ted hour when the toil of tho harvest
field shall bo dripped at tho summons
and tho other, at our very side,
shall be left, wondering, while wo are
taken and caught np to meet the Lon!
in the. It may be that the woirine.s
and pain of the sick-bed shall prepare
us for the rest and j >y of the land
where thei nhabitantsjshall nevor say 'I
am sick.' It biots not. Somewhere,
somehow, when our testing an 1 our
toil is done, He will say, 'Enough,'
ar.d we shall see His face and se ve
Him without sense of labor or surcease
of delight. And, then, forever with
the Lord, enraptured, we shall look
and never tire, upon tho visions of
supernal beauty in our Father's
Rev. G. B. Strickler, D. D., of the
Union Theological Seminary, an I a
member of the board of trustees of the
University, preached a sermon of great
power ia thc chapel at 9 o'clock in the
evening, from Hebrews 11th chapter
and the latter part of the Gth verse, his
subject being "Faith." Introducing
his sermon ihe preacher said every
careful reader of the Biblt has no iced
how much ia said al iou; faith. More
prominence and power are asserted of
this than of any other in the catilogue
of graces. Many persons do not under?
stand why so much is said of the power
of faith, but when wu realize that we
can grasp the many rich prjmisc3 of
God only through the exercise of faith,
then indeed we may understand some?
thing of its importance and why the in?
spired writers dwell on it to such an
extent. There is no conflict between
faith and reason. Reason rightly used
can never come in conflict with the
Scripture rightly interpreted, and c in?
versely the Scripture rightly Interpret?
ed can nevor como in conflict with reas?
on rightly used. It is a remarkable
thing that in tracing back the h'story
of the Bible we find tho earne things
recorded of God in the various books,
although they wore written by forty
different persons at different limos and
places and under varying eire jmstancos.
The preacher then showeJ the pl ice
that faith occupies not only in religion
but in society and the burin ss world
as well, All [tm knowledge of every

Thc annual regatta in looked forward
to with more interest than any other
feature of thc commencement, uot only
by the stud, nts but bj the general pub?
lic. For months the two crews had
been in training for the supreme effort
of one afternoon. At various points in
town bini' aLil red Hays were displayed
several days before tho cont st, thus
indicating a preference for the uuccees
of Albert Sidney ol Harry Leo.
Motiday af. ei noon at 0 o'clock was
the timo for ibo race to begin, but like
ali the commencement exercises, this
1 art of the piograiume was late. Long

badge and whistle wa. greatly in evi?
dence. A lar0e number of country
people we:e pretcut. Tbe banks of
the river were lined and a great many
persons were on the chits overlooking
the race-cours .
As the two ciews pulled out fr jm the
boat h use within a short time of each
oih.r and started up the river t-hout

favorites. Now .ame tho long wait,
until tho boats started at the beginning
of tbe course, a milo up the river. The
band, however, e llivencd the time by
playing patriotio airs. Soon the bi ats

excitement became more intoose. each

Tuesday's program was an interest?
ing one. At ll o'clock Hon.Hilary A.
Herbert, of Alabama, ex-Secrolary ol
the Navy, delivered the address before
the Law Class. His subject was, "The
United States Supreme Court." Tho
address created a profound impression,
and was replete with historical refer?
ences of the influence exerted by this
august body upon tho government of
United States.
Hon. George B. McClellan, member
of Congress from New York City, ad
dressed the Literary Societies at 9
o'clock in the evening, his subject be?
ing "The Foreign Policy of the United
States." His speech was in opposition
to the annexation of foreign territory
as being dangerous to the safety of our
country. Such a course, said he, would
be but the beginning of the end.
After Mr. McClellan's address the
Pinkney Prize Cup was awarded to the
Albert Sidney crew for their success in
