Following is the graduating essay of Miss Leila McClure, of Lewisburg, Tenn, read at commencement exercis es of C. F. College, "Wednesday eve ning, May 30th, 1888: There is an irresistible force in nature that impels forward all ob jects of creation, from the tiniest ani malcule to the countless worlds and suns revolving in space. We endeav or through the agency of our senses to discover Whither, and are only answered by the mocking echo, "Whither?" We direct our vision into the Future through the magnify ing power of Reason's telescope, but fail to make the discovery, and as we behold this never-ceasing panorama of Nature drifting by us, on and on, and falling in a constant stream into eternal obscurity, our minds become dazed. In a delirium of frenzy we cry out, "Whither, oh whither are ye bound ? " Often at that happy period when I was being transformed from innocent childhood into ft ro mantic maiden, have I wandered along the grassy haunts of a bab bling brook that rippled past the old homestead and watched the wavelets leap in joyful glee from rock to rock, and the never ending ripples as they snatched a kiss from a glistening sunbeam that peeped through an open window in the dense foliage, and then another scamper on in hot pursuit of those that had gone on before, I would stand and muse, "Whither are ye bound in such hot haste ?" Then ever and anon my at tention would be arrested by a sprin kle of -leaves from an over-hanging sycamore, noating on the wings or a passing zephyr and gently lighting on the bosom of the stream, and as they would take up their line of march my fancy would picture some couple uniting together as boon companions and peacefully floating down the stream of Time. At that time my thoughts extended no lurtner than the lantastic repre sentations of a romantic miss, and my senses were delighted or pained as the creations of my imagination re called my hopes or fears. And now as I recall the scenes from the hallow ed precincts of Memory's vaults, I see racing wavelets and drifting leaves, a symoblic representation of all Crea tion. It matters not what channel of thought the mind may traverse, or upon what object it may alight, it is ever confronted by the puzzling question, "Whither drifting?" Unanswered interrogation points tremble on every sprig of grass. gleam in every gem, ride upon the white-crested waves in their race for the shore, sigh upon the wayward winds, shimmer in the mighty stars, enthrone themselves upon the clouds, entomb themselves in the solemn memories of the past. They mount the chariot of Hope, they rush into the serpentine paths of the lightning, they plant themselves as foot-stones to every grave. Standing upon the great thoroughfare of Thought, Ac tion, Feeling, we ask each and all of creation's activities. "Whither, old Nature, with your rolling worlds? Whither, Time, with your manifold record ? Whither, ye ships, ye rolling engines? Whither, ye ardent, youthful lovers? Whither, O ye souls, with im mortality gleaming in your head lights ? Whither, O ye mighty armies of the dead with your countless mil lions?" Knowledge, the key that unlocks the doors of the hidden treasures of the earth, sea and sky, that can make unseen agencies sub servient to its will, when interroga ted, gives no response. With a feel ing of desperation we call to our aid, Imagination. With a speed more swift than lightning she penetrates and explores the 6ecret chambers of the future and returns wearied, ex hausted, speechless. O my dear comrades, ye who are now passing mi. uurncuium witn pride swelling high in your bosoms. ladened with bright hopes and antici pations, with your blood fevered and your brows liusheu with the nrst blush of victory, Whither are ye bound? Are you traveling the highway that leads to Honor, Fame Distinction, to Health and Tower Does your road lead to a haven o rest, where your memory will be en shrined in the hearts of your fellow creatures, or are you being drawn by the song of some siren on the shoals of disappointment and quicksands despair? Will you become-glisten ing jewels in the crown of society, or lag behind to be trodden under foot by the multitude in its onward march? Whither, O, my associates and companions, Whither will the race upon which we are entering upon this our Commencement Day lead us Will that unseen agency that impels us all onward ever cause our paths to meet again? 0. how rends my heart with pain and anguish to know that even now our journeys are beginning to diverge, all leading nto life's boundless wilderness ; that perhaps ere Time shall have reaped another year and gathered it into the garners of the Past, or perhaps ere another shall have waxed and waned we will have proceeded so far upon our journeys towards that unknown destiny awaiting us that no power save Him who reigns above can an nihilate the intervening distance. Some may have reached a round high in the ladder of fame, some may be the central figures of courts of chivalric admirers, while others may have reached and passed through the portals of life's eternal camping Grounds. Yet, so densely opague is the screen that separates us from the future that we are unable to dis cern whither we may drift in tho next day or hour. While we know full well that at some time in the near future we must give back to Mother Earth our mortal frames, yet do we know whither will flee that which is im mortal? This is the puzzling ques tion that has agitated every nation in every age. The Mythology oi an cient Greece and Rome were founded on poetical theories and inculcated as an answer to this query, and it is from an abortive attempt to solve this mystery that the creeds and re- igion of all. Pagan nations have sprung into existence. And in vain do we live under the noonday sun of civilization that enlightens this nineteenth century ; in vain call up on Science to draw aside this veil ; in vain beseech an answer from the wis dom and learning of the two thou sand years now rolling into eternity; in vain do we call upon reason for ight. O, thou great omnipotent, om niscient beine who didst create the heavens, earth, sea, and "all that in them is," and who didst create the mvsterious propellant power that keeps them all in motion, hast thou no agent, no medium here on earth to which poor, simple, weary mor tals may go and ask "Whither Bound?" Listen! From afar beyond the confines of Knowledge, beyond the search of Science, beyond the stretch of reason, a still small voice falls upon my soul like oil upon the angry waters. 'Tis the voice of faith. Dissolve yourself," says she "of all human understanding and come be neath the shadow r of my wing, for it is through ray glasses alone that the misty future can bo penetrated. Look beyond that dark rolling stream called Death, and behold a and never darkened by sorrrow, a and illumined with lights of love that never grow dim : and see at the. foot of the great White Throne that bears the superscription 'Jving oi Kinsrs and Lord .of Lords' the countless myriads with a halo of glory shining around each brow and the lisrht of eternal happiness beam ing from every eye; to join this happy throng is whither tne Beauti ful are bound, to laud and magnify the name of Him who sits on the Great White Throne," is the answer given by all Nature, when interroga ted, "Whither?"
