Vacation Has Come--Grand Sermon ---Fine Address. The closing exercises of the Moses Levi Memorial Institute began last Sauday morning in the auditorium of the Institute with the usual religious service for such ocrasions. The bac calaureate sermon was preached by Rev. Gordon I. 'Moore. D. D.. Colum hi. . C. The auditorini was 1iiled to o\ver flowfog, and every detail of the pro r was carried out excellently. The choir under the direction of Mrs. .1. L_ Wilson wa; composed of Mesdames U. C. Gailuchat.. if. J. Uradham. W. C. Davis. S. I. Till a-ud J. (. Gough, !essrs.F. .. llichardson. J. L. Wells, and A. P. Burgess. The singina was superb. especially the last number "Oh For a Thousand Toagues to sing." In this selection there Was a duett very sweetly rendered by Mrs. J. 0. Gough and Mr. J. L. Wells. The following was the program: Voluntary--All Thy Works Shall nraise Thee. ' Hymn - -Come Thou Almighty King." Prayer-Rev. J. 0. Gough. Choir selection-"O Come. Let us Sing." Scripture Reading-Rev. A. N. Brunson. Hymn-"All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name." Sermon-Rev. G. B. Moore. Choir Selection-"Oh. for a Thous and Tongues to Sing." Doxology. Benediction-Rev. G. D. Moore. The sermon was the utterance of a student. a master of English. a moulder of thought and a demonstrator of di vine teaching. The speaker delivered his sermon in a manner that impresses itself upon the mind. He reached with his forceful and magnificiently rounded sentences the minds of those of tender years, and in them he planted seed which should be fruitful in after years. Dr. Moore's sermon1was an oration with out the usual frills, flounces and laces so common with public speakers. There' was no aerial flights. no soaring among the stars, no tripping along silver brooks, no plucking flowers in the gar dens of imagination, no tinkling of sil ver bells, and no feeding the mind upon perfumed air. But for fifty minutes he pointed out the vaTue of persistency, determination, self reliance, work with a shigh ideal as the goal. The entire discourse was our conception of true oratory. The following is a brief syn opsis of his sermon: COMMiENCEMENT SERMON. Subject: 'Personal Value:'" Text: Luke, 12:L. The question of personal value is forced upon our attention as we stand in the presence of a vast and uncom prehended universe. Man feels hiss smallness~and helplesness,and condemns self-importance as a defect of charac ter. "W'hat is man that thou art mind ful of him: I tbe Son of man that thou visitest him?'" What is one life among the teeming millions of earth? Only one question concerning per sonal value will be considered, viz: How is it~determined? Three questions are involved in the determination of' personal value. First, the whereabouts or the environment of the person un der consideration. Secondly, the nat ural endowments or hereditary advant ages in the case. Tbirdlv, the element of personal will. It makes a difference where one be. gins life. Environment places a limit upon the degree of personal value that is attainable. The individual as such has no assignable value: his significance is derived from his social nexus or rela tions. The particular social order in volved is important. To be potential one must appear among a potential people. Nature in the first place- pro duces a great brain only among a peo ple who use their brains and discipline them in the highest exercises. The free use of one's own will is de termining personal value. We are largely what we choose to be. We are in a world that stimulates thought and' that prompts to action and the forma tion of ideals. This is a land of oppor tunities and an age of opportunities. Personal value depends largely upon the services we render to others It is enhanced by service to the State, to society, to the cause of philanthropy and religion. It means more, perhaps, to be an American at this time than to be a citizen of any other land. No greater opportunities invite. The old corception of virtue as strength, an activity of the will in over coming resistance needs to be revived and re-emphasized. If life is to be a rational whole of experience, the ex pression of a definite value, there must be no aimless drifiting. Native endow -ment here is important. Men are born neither free nor equal: they exhibit primordial differences that become more conspicuous as they rise through voluntary effort into freedom. SomeI are naturally weak, deficient in the basic qualities that constitute steadfast character. There can be no man actual where there is no man potential. There must be a man implied from the begin4 ing: some adamant, or at least, grit. Education, under the most favorable conditions, creates no new qualities, is not a process of making something out of nothing: it is simply making the most of existing materials. Our ideals must take account of existing condi tions. and gather their strength and inspiration within the circle of pre scribed and necessary action. The manhood of Jesus of Nazareth was illustrated. The danger to our ideals from impa tience to succeed in business. etc. Eax amples illustrating manhood. morally, intellectually and physically. After all that may be said of environ ment-and surely ours is most favor able-and after ~all claims and allow anees have been made on behalf of heredity, each one of us will at least be an exipression of value in terms of will and volitional achievement. And' when the final decision- is rendered as to our personal value. it will rest upon the use we have made of our sovereign plower of self-determination. Fully 200 people assembled in the auditorium of the Institute last Mon day night. and many people turned away because they could not find stand in<g room This was the closing of the sixth scholastic vear' of the Moses Levi Institute, a large graduating class dis tinguished speakers. and an excellent! progran all tended to bring out the -multitude. and it came. It was a ine audience. The essays of Misses Clara Harin and Pauline Wilson were well prepared: papers and well read. The singing of the children was mao' niticient. The instrumental duett by Bowman brought forth tmany favorable expressions from judges of music. Ilon. 0. B.

I thank you for the compiment. and, it shall be m endeavor not be abuse the privile~ce. The line of thought then to which I witsh to invite your attention is putriotism and love of country. We live in a day and time. when peace like a -oiden sunbeam is resting over our land. The ivy of time is entwining- itself around the co! un. which marks the last resting place of hitterness and contention. The sons of the blue and greY are marching shoulder to shoulder. The Orave men who took part on either side of the great struggle, which rent us asunder. are shaking hands across the bloody chasm. and congratulating each other upon deeds of gal. lantrr and heroism. leaving as a proud herit a:e to those of us who have never known but one ibag and onz country the -rave duty of honoring the memory of the great lost cause. and it the same time rendering loyalty to our native land. and the flag which destiny has raised over our heads and called our own. As a child of the South, and one proud of the South's past record. and of the Confederate blood which fows in his veins I cannot speak of the past and fnture, of love of country. of loyalty to the stars and stripes without first impressing upon those who hear me the necessity of inculcating into the youth of our land a veneration for the lost cause. and indellibly impressing upon their minds that the South has never done anything to be ashamed of: and further. that every man who took part in that great struggle or offered up his life a living sacrifice upon the altar of the South was a hero. They should be told too of their second heroic struggle for supremacy and honest government in which they conquer ed' How after staring starvation in the face and courting death for four long years. they surrendered when there was nothing left to tight for or to tight with. How with bowed and reverent heads they gave one longing glance at tields of blood and strife, clasped the grimy hands of the few remaining comrades. bade them a sad farewell. and turned their weary steps and tear-stained faces homeward. Tell them too of that awful home coming to find dwelling and barn in ashes, marking like mon umental evidence sacred spots surrounded by wasted tields and wilderness. And of the widows and orphans who had nothing left but the glimmering hope that these weary war stained veterans, would be able to establish law and order amid chaos. and create prosperity amidst wreck and ruin. and general devasta tion. Nor was their hope in vain. They had lost. but only for a time. They had been crush' ed. but not in ambition of purpose. They had been conquered. but not in soul and spirit: and with brave and dauntless hearts they faced the untried foe: fought as men never fought be fore. and won after long and wear' years of struggle: and to day by reason of their efforts throughout the length and breadth of this broad land of ours. due can always feel a tinge of pride in saying I am from the South. These men belonged to a race of heroes. But few re main to tell the tale of the struggle and hard ship of those four years and the years preceed ing. And these few are fast passing away Day by day they are crossing over the river into that great bevond where the cannon-s roar is hushed and stilled, and the bugle sounds no more. And as one by one they bow their heads and go marching from the field of battle. the bivouac of life, to find rest and peace upon another shore, our hearts should go with them. and a deep and everlasting gratitude should keep memory green, because to them we owe the dazzlng splendour of Southern pride and prosperity. It is the duty of every true son and daughter of the South to mark their last resting place. to see that their graves are kept as spotless as the lives they have lived, and to strew them with towers as pure and 'as beautiful as the record they made for themselves and for you and for me.' These things done. and we can then love. honor and be loyal to the Stars and Stripes. and teach our children to do likewise: -'Is there a man with heart so dead. Who never to himself hiath said. This is my own. my native land." There is another pace in our country's his tory, when the struggle wtis great, the enemy fierce and the obstacle to be overcome almost insurmountable. It was in the early days. When the betautiful fields tiow ladetned with plenty, were but a mass of undiscovered and untried jungle and wilderness. When on the spots now dotted with happy homes, the wild red warrior, and the fierce Oeast of the forest ran rampant and held full sway. The brave men and dauntless women who fought that fight for civilization in a new and unknown country. hsve also lef t a heritage upon which all succeeding generations, can look with pride. They approached this shore with fear, and ti ambling, but no sooner had they set foot upon t~e land which fate had destined to be theirs. than the noble anglo saxon spirit famous and predominent the world over triumphed over their fears, and goaded them on to doing deeds of heroism and bravery. They sprang like magic npon the stage of action; strong. vigor ous, brave and trne. their every fibre tingling and teeming and pnlsing with energy and en thusiasm, and then and there a new type of manhood, the noblest. most courageous, and sublime was born into the world, and the world was blessed by its advent. All the essential elements, physical. political. intellectual and spiritual were harmonized each to each. be cause as a beautiful united whole: and thus impelled by this wonderful motive power of Anglo Saxon manhood. results were accom plished that have startled and thrilled the wod The mighty forest bowed to the stroke of the axe, and the fierce warlike aboriginees stubbornly receded from their pathway. And what a pathway. They have grasped the helm of civilization. They moved not like a little rivulet gradually feeling its way. and finally wasting itself upon the sands. but rather like a great swollen stream, bursting forth with a wild crash, and carrying all before it. Forcing a way through forest and valley, tearing across the v.ery mountain~s and finding advent beyond. until they had filled every nook and corner of this new world with their presence, and made it respond to the word and wisdom of God and the will and power of man. The people who did this, our forefathers, have left this shore, and time has rolled on. Even the lingering wit nesses of their glory and their triumph when they took the new land they had builded. and the new nation they had founded, and wrested it from the tyrannical grasp of the mother country. even these have, long since passed on af ter recording their good deeds that their memories might be enshrined in the hearts of succeeding generations have come, come to have their being to live and dwell upon the face of this beatuti~ful country. so builded by our forefathers of the South and North alike. Shai we of the present generation keep alive sectional bittertiess and contention. and hold aloof from the rest of our great country. I ans wer no. because to do so. would mean. that we have forgotton the generous zeal with which our people fought. bled and died in that great struggle for Independence us against the moth er country- While there has been an estrange ment between the people of the North and South. we once met on common ground, and our fathers were the ancient friends of Mas sachusets. It was the elbow and shoulder touch which inspired and nerved the heafet and strengthened the arm of the men of New Eng land during the early birth days of our nation. We of the South have just uas much right to be proud of the nation's record and the Stars and stripes, as the people who reside tiorth of the Mason and Dixion Line. And it should be our pride and our glory to know that the baniner of our country is floating as peacefully and tri umphantly in the South as in the North. That here in the heart of the South. it will continue to float upon the wings of heaven, and be fan ned by the breath of fame "-every stripe bright and unsullied. every star a dazzling emblem of the past' long years after you and I have en tered the great beyond, and ceased forever to gaze upon its majestic folds. I see in the des iipy of the South. far better hopes than before we were rent asunder. Birighter visions of her future fiash before me. as day by day I mingle my thoughts and ideas with broad-minded men fron all over the Union. and hear expressions of ;ood will. and kind encouragement fall fast and thick trom their lips. Trhey admit thait the South has a past of which any nation or people of right should be piroud. Ini the height, of her prosperity and glory, during her darkest and 'most trying hours, she has ever been inspired by principles of justice and right. Let us raise tie veil of the great hidden past.
