The session work is over ; tho col

within a few hours smiles and tears
will bring April weather to your

But if it be any comfort to yon, I

Amid tho toil and thc lesson-learn

may not have realized the advant
ages of college lifo and of the studios
that may have tried your patience.
Tho course may have seemed bard
and fruitless. But li f teen years
from to-night you will rejoice that
you were students of G. F. C.
Then you will have seen that the
stern disciplino of the class room
prepared you for tho duties and
responsibilities bf lifo. .Thon you
will havo felt that every hour of
thought and of study was equipment
for service in thc home, in thc school
room, in society, in thc church.
Then you will have known that,
tn the old college days, you were
planting seed, whose harvest is tho
ripened grain of a kindlier courtesy,
of higher thought, of broad or sympa
thy, of nol>ler aspirations, of far
grander results.
Then you will have seen that math
ematical problems evolved power of
thought and promoted readiness of
action ; that hours spent on Latin
not only admitted you to the com
panionship of the master spirits of
the olden time, but developed reason
ing faculties; that music not only
gives you power to sing with melt

Old Kolks at Home," and "Annie

from the shadows of tho past half
forgotten memories and "recollec

In the second place, take your
stand firmly and resolutely on tho
side of true and full development.
Partial development is but partial

animal grew, but equally the power
of thc athlete was devolopod. At
last, so tradition says, Milo carried

old, then killed it with one blow of
his fist. Hero was development of

our schools and colleges wo now
and then find a boy, called by cour
tesy a student, who is an unconscious
disciple of Milo rather than Cicero:
to whom the dynamics of arms and
legs are far more than the dynamics
of the brain.
Far up in the scale of develop
ment) far above thc cultivation of
the physical, wc lind tho develop
ment of the intellectual, tho evolu
tion of mind. In this development
of growth, in processes and results,
grand as many of them aro, far
reaching and even splendid, evoking
the wonder of the untaught and the
admiration of thc learned, are
danger-signals; and among these aro
the exaltation of self, the reason,
and tho blasphemous complacency
that says, "Here arc my works.
Where are God's."
In this development of moro intel
lect is the tendency to apply to every
sentiment of the human heart, to
every aspiration of thc soul, tho
stilted formula of a cold philosophy,
of reason, which would overthrow
the republic of brotherhood, of ten
der sympathy, of a world-embracing
love, of a luminous faith, and erect
in its stead the despotism of a frigid,
soulless mentality.
In this exaltation of mere mind is
the hypothesis of innumerable atoms
blending to form a cosmos, and
blending by chanco or by natural
alli II? t y, not by (rod's command.
In this worship of man, and not
i man's Maker, is the doctrine of sea
sons recurring, of sunrise and sunset,
of ?tars dwelling in space by nature's

In it, too, is the dreary answer
"yes" to thc question, "Does death

Mon and women of our tiiuo,
glorying in mind alone, developing
only tho eold intellect, may fashion
systems of reasoniug that have out
ward symmetry and bounty ; may
send forth contributions to literature
that evoke tho applauso of a day, of
a year ; may utter upon tho plat?
form or publish in papers dainty
thoughts or keen epigrams that
seem bright and clever ; but, when
the story is told, does all this bring
recompense ? Does it pay us to
spenk our lives in championing a
theory that would give the lie to the
Bible, and at the end to find that we
must return to dust, while tho old
book lives, as live it must, through
time and into eternity ? Docs it pay
us, intoxicated as it were, with suc
cess of the intellect, to destroy tho
faith of many and to give them, in
place of lost hopes, tho desolation of
despair? DOCB it pay a man to
accomplish wonders in science, to
reach tho heights of reason and
philosophy, in short, "to gain the
whole world," and deifying mind
and self, "to lose his own soul?"
The greatest human intellect, if it
denies God and rejects the spiritual,
if it embraces materialism, after all
confesses itself the slave of matter.
Then where is the boasted triumph
of mind ?
The tendency, then, to develop
along purely intellectual lines is to
eradicate the omotional, to subject
sentiment, even the best and truest,
to cold analysis, to eliminate the
divine and the spiritual, and to place
in thc vacancy, thus philosophically
assumed, nature, and self, as nature's
prime factor.
Highest in the scale of develop
ment is the growth of tho spiritual,
of that which, in man, should domi
nate the physical and direct the
mental. This element, rightly devel
oped, recognizes itself as the best
gift of God to mat) ; and rejoicing
in tho kinship of Deity, humbly con
secrates itself to thc service of God.
Seeing, too, in the physical and in
the intellectual the Divine hand, it
appreciates both and wisely presides
over the development of body and of
Hero then we have true educa
tion : the body obeying the rules of
health, having proper exercise and
development ; the mind, trained,
active, eager for knowledge and for
research, eager to achieve success
and to win victories ; and both body
and mind in obedience to thc will of
tho soul, which, in turn, is in willing
subjection to tho purposes of God.

McLaurin Talks of His Trip to Washington.

John L. McLaurin returned homo
last night from Washington, Phila
delphia and Now York, whore lie
had been for ton days. Ile was look
ing well and in a moat agreeable
framo of mind.
The Senator was shown a clipping
from the Atlanta Constitution of
June 17, winch was a special from
Columbia, giving an account of the
proposed attempt to read the Senator
out of the Democratic primaay in
this State, lie was asked what lie
had to say in reference to the matter.
He replied he had been absent from
tho State for several days and had
not seen tho State papers, but laugh
ingly remarked that it looked like
thc boys were getting very uneasy
and would say nothing further on the
subject at present. Ho evidently
treated the whole affair as n huge
The Senator was asked if he had
anything lu say as to the purpose of
his visit North, and replied that he
had secured thc Government exhibit
for tlie Charleston ICxposition, pro
vided Charleston would erect a suita
ble building, and that when Congress
assembled he Imped an appropriation
could bo obtained for the Exposition,
and ho thought it could be done if
everybody interested would act wisely
and judiciously.
Mr. McLaurin was asked as to his
futuro speech making in this State.
"Yes," said he, "1 will speak in
Spartanburg on July I and at several
other places soon thereafter."
Ile showed three invitations to
speak in this State, which ho found
awaiting his return home.
They were from Leesville, Oak way
and a place in Kershaw county. Thc
invitation from Leesville was accom
panied by the names of quite a num
ber of influential citizens. At least
five hundred letters had accumulated
during his absence, which were sys
tematically arranged in his private
secretary's oflice.

The Hamburg Herald draws the
following conclusions from Tillman's
effort to bring on a contest with Mc
Laurin this summer :
1. That the so-called "McLaurin
movement" is very strong all over
thc State. Hen Tillman doesn't fight
2. That Tillman thinks he is the
strongest man in the State, and tho
oidy one that can beat McLaurin.
8. That tho idea of a primary this
year is to prevent as far as possible
the dissemination among the people
of tho views held hy McLaurin.
4, Tillman sees ahead the downfall
of himself unless he can kill this
movement in its infancy, and that is
why ho lias thrown himself into the
6, That Tillman and other old-time
politicians helievo tho only way to
defeat McLaurin is to havo tho fight

Interesting Incident at the Recent Industrial
Convention at Philadelphia.
Charleston was pleasantly brought
to tho front in tho Southern Indus
trial Convention when Gen. W. W.
II. Davis, of Doylestown, Pa., pre
sented to tho old City by tho Sea,
through hor dologation there, a relio
of tho lato unpleasantness. Gen.
Davis, formerly Col. Davis, was in
command of tho Federal forceB on
Morris Island during 1804, and while
thoro ono of tho signal flags of tho
Coufcdcralo ram Chicora foll into
his hands. To-night that flag was
restored to tho metropolis of South
Carolina. In presenting tho Hag,
which he has cherished as one of his
most priceless relics of his war ox
porionce, Geu. Davis said :
"Tho duty devolving on mo, in
connection with the evening function,
is of the most pleasiug character, and
tho pleasure ?B enhanced by discharg
ing it in this presenoe. I am hero to
entrust to our Sonthern guests a relio
of tho war bctweon tho States, and
to deputo ono of their members to
return it to the City of Charleston,
S. C., where it properly bolongs.
When Charleston fell into tho hands
of the Federal forces on February 18,
1805, among the spoils of war was tho
signal Hag of the Confo/lorate ram
Chicora. lt was taken from tho
locker of tho VCSBCI by Lieut. Wm. H.
Elliott, formerly of my command,
and subsequently presented to mo.
In the meantime I determined to re
turn it to the rightful owner could ho
be found, but it was never done. Mr.
Elliott suggested wo take advantage
of tho meeting of the Southern In
dustrial Convention in this city to
discharge this duty. Thia met my
views and I am here to-night for that
purpose. To you, Dr. Kollock, I
commit this symbol of thu nation's
quarrel, and ask you to givo it to tho
Mayor ol Charleston to make such
disposition as may seem proper, and
I hope the flag may bo cared for in a
manner commensurate with tho cour
age that defended it in tho strife of
battle. Happily and wonderfully
for both sides that war has passed
into history, and our bruised arms
are hung up for monuments, and thc
courage and forbearance, and forti
tude, the Buffering and tho tears that
marked its progress have cryslalized
the nation into a moro perfect Union.
Thc Union based on affection, re
spect and mutual good will, and tho
Southern Industrial Convention as
sembled here, givo ovidonco that
belli the North and tho South fully
realize that 'peace hath her victories
no less renowned than war.' If moro
were wanting, let us one and all in
this City of Brotherly Love, founded
in deeds of peace by William 1'onn,
wherein thc immortal Declaration of
Independence was mado and pro
mulgated and the Constitution
adopted, swear to retain our allegi
ance to the Union."
In accepting tho Hag for Charles
ton Dr. Kolloksaid : "It would stem
moro fitting that some battle-scarred
veteran, some man who had borne it
in retreat, some one who had heard
thc booming of thc cannon and burst
ing of shell, some one who had shed
his blood in defence of the cause for
which so many gave their lives, should
receive this most precious relic from
its generous and chivalrous eaptor.
Hut then these men aro rapidly
marching away never to return, and
already many havo crossed over tho
river and arc resting in tho shade of
thc trees, l?pon us, their sons, de
volves the duty to preservo theso
relics of a cause they hold so doar
and to keep bright in our memories
and those of o,ur children their glori
ous deeds. Aye, gentlemen, of tho
North and South, it is such doods as
these that tend to soften tho feelings
of the past and help to cement again
the affections of these brothers who
differed, quarrelled and fought-as
only the brave fight-to tho bitter
end. What memories this flag calls
up from thc past, and what has be
come of the brave hands that boro it
'mid shot and shell to victory and
defeat?' Moth inks I can seo through

ruthless lire of the besieged, and thus
the battle wages. Now for tho groy
and now for tho blue, until like tho
mist before the rising sun tho groy
line fades gradually away and is soon
no more. Thank God, gentlemen,
that these days aro past, and lot us
pray that never again shall thoso
brothers raino their hands in anger
against one another, but that year by
yoar and day by day they shall moot
as they do to-day, for tho best inter
