Young Female College Commencement.
Our reports from day to day have
given in detail the exercises that have
attended the commencement of Young
Female College that has just closed.
Now that they are of the past, and
looking at them in their entirety, it is
safe to say that the daily programme
exceeded in attractiveness any that
has been given at any preceding com
mencement. This was to he expcclcd,
and might be said to he a natural se
quence following the most prosperous
term the college has ever known.
It is always pleasant to bear testi
mony to work well done, and in this
case wc take the agreeable opportunity
to say that the graduation papers, and
the exercises participated in by the
undergraduates of the institution, gave
evidence of thorough work on the
part of the teachers, and time well
employed by the pupils themselves.
There must always be something in
the expectant attitude with which
grad nates face commencement audi
ences, to them the symbol of the
great world, that appeals with strong
power to the sympathy of those that
have passed from under the shadow of
their school days. It will happen that
many of the idea's that form so large
a part of the hopes ami expectations
of young ladies, and young men, too,
will be shattered by contact with the
world, but we cherish the \yish that
the voting ladies that left the shelter
ing arms of Young Female College
this week, maybe the hostages of good
fortune, and may those that take up,
a£ the opening of the new term,
studies left off, work and walk worthy
of the opportunities they have of gar
nering up knowledge within its classic
We give much of our space this
morning to the report of the commit
tee on Education, made to the Board
of Trustees of South Georgia College
at its meeting last Tuesday.
It is an able paper, and as bearing
on the needs of the college and the
cause of education generally, it is
worthy of a careful perusal. It fore
shadows a policy on the part of the
Board of Trustees of this institution
that is bound to bring good results.
The Board is to be brought into, more
active sympathy and work with the
faculty. Each is to feel that the
other is equally interested in the pros
perity of the college, and as unity of
effort always brings the best results,
it is fair to take it for granted that
the same will follow in the present
case. With Thomasvilles prestige as
a health resort, and the splendid col
lege building she has provided, there
ought to he a large number of stu
dents in attendance from middle and
eastern Florida. From the university
to thd&Sommon shools, the caure of
education will receive a forward im
petus within the next year that will
mark an important era in the history
of the state. South Georgia College
is in position to profit by the impetus
and the Board of Trustees will, as they
have in the past,, hi on the alert, and
ready to present the claims of Tliom-
asvilles pet institutions to public fa

on the 26th. He will go from New
port into the mountains of North Car
olina, and will spend a part of the
summer among the Cherokee Indians
in that state—with Dave Owl, Oo-
goo-kod, and his brother Jim Keg sa
tar-nee, chief and sub chiefs of the
tribe. His object in eoing among the
Indians is to investigate and discover,
if possible, the iikx/h* nyiwpi fiWnd the
rapeutic value of a plant or shrub,
said to be indigenous to Swain county,
the home of the Chcrokecs, and claim
ed by them to be an infallible cure for
consumption, Any discoveries of in
terest made in this investigation will
be promptly reported to the Times-
Enterprise, and specimens of the
plant will be sent to the pharmacy of
R. Thomas, from which I’rofessor C.
S. Bondurant will prepare tinctures,
fluids, extracts and syrups, in time to
be tested and utilized during the com
ing winter. It is only by experiment
that the value of any drug can be
established. It would be strange,
indeed, if the poor, persecuted red
man should prove the discoverer ol a
cure for a disease which has baflled
the combined skill of the medical world
for twenty-five hundred years.
