Speeches and Music at Corner Stone Laying. On Tuesday afternoon tho ceremony of laying the cornerstone of the. Covina Union High School was performed he- fore a large audience, composed of the citizens of Covina and the surrounding districts. Tn the absence of Mr. Samuel Funk, chairman of the High School trustees, the position of muster of ceremonies was al)ly filled by Trustee H. N. Wells. After a musical selection by the High School band, tho proceedings were opened by prayer from Rev. Paul Stevens of the Presbyterian Church. Then Prof. A. Harvey Collins, principal of Covina High School, delivered a scholarly address upon the great, effect of education upon Ihe making and 'development of our present: twentieth century ^civilization. Twenty million boys and girls are at the present time receiving instruction in our schools, which are fitting them for the duties of life and enabling them to become intelligent and useful citizens of this great, republic, and 500,000 of the best, and brainiest men and women in this country are devoting their energies and their lives to the noble work of expanding the intellects and forming the characters of the mighty army of the future men and women of onr country. The band then played the 'national hymn, " America,"/the audience rising and singing it with great enthusiasm. Mr. Wells then introduced the speaker of the day, the Hon. Webster Davis of Kansas City, Mo., who mot with a most cordial reception. After a few pleasing introductory remarks Mr. Davis spoke as follows: "It is the strong intellect of man becoming educated and gradually ac- cniiring an increase ill knowledge that- has gradually worked this wonderful change, and brought about, this marvelous progress. "As men became more and more educated and enlightened, the arts of writing and printing enlarged inimitably the repositories of knowledge: thus we are reminded of the low condition of man in a state of ignorance and barbarism, and of the high condition to which ho may bo brought by cultivation, and how the arts of civilization have increased in accordance with the gradual increase, of man's knowledge of the universe. " Kilucation embraces education—the leading forth—the development of human power and instruction—the building up of human character. "To youth, education imparts thai knowledge whose ways are usefulness and honor, and by due restraint anil subordination makes individual to entwine with public good in a just observance of laws comprehending the path of duty. "To manhood it makes his IIOMHII glow with social tenderness, ami makes of man a good and valuable citi/en in the community in which he lives To age it gives consolal ion by remembrance of the past and anticipation of the future. " I'.VIncation is the growth ami improvement of the mind. Its great object is happiness. "That, then, is the lies! education which secures to the individiia I and to the world the greatest amount of true happiness. "The aim of education is no: cially to make experts. "In their natures, original su bilities and ultimate destinies all men are alike. Tiny are material, intellectual aad spiritual; animal, rational and immortal. On these uniform traits of character education should !,,• ba-ed. It should develop ami strengthen the animal functions; classify and improve the rational faculties, and piuit'v and elevate the spiritual atfert inns I,, ),;,,-. rnonions proportion ami p. rl'eci ivinpa- thy. "Kdncation dues not mean simply and exclusively Hie development ,,f man physically, but the rrn ellect iia I and! moral natures require an cipial amount of development so that man mav he evenly balanc. d and all hi, faci.ltie* Work harinoniou.-dv. And the schouU and iinivcrsilie* which work along those broad lines, giving undue prominence to none, are raising up the grandcit ami noblest men and women of the future. ' 4 lt is not the true object of education to make man a repo.-itorv of knowledge ai the ex pt rise of his bodilv health nor to make a ciear. cold, lo^ic engine of a inan or wr'naii. for that wrecks manhood and Woman).m i* il tl:t- aim nf education M '"aKe a man or u om;i n a l>ept i''. hunchbacked, ii.t. lie Init it.-.

Intellect is a gallant ship, but unless it be guided by a skilful .pilot the very swiftness of its sail hastens its own destruction. Bacon and Byron were men of splendid intellectual development, seldom surpassed in genius and intellect, but their moral nature was sadly neglected. Only the men of careful intellectual and moral balance mark the onward march of our civilization; indeed, upon the even-handed distribution of these forces, intellect and morality, among the citizens of a nation, depend both its progress and stability. A nation's wealth consists not alone in its broad domain and its natural resources, but in the intelligence and virtues of its citizens; its nobles are not the men of royal birth, but the men of sober thoughts and righteous deeds. "The development and the greatest possible perfection of the whole nature of man, his moral, intellectual and physical nature; with intellectual faculties active and enlightened, with moral sentiments dignified and firm; with physical formation healthy and strong. The rounded and complete manhood and womanhood, these are what we seek as wrapped up in education." At the conclusion of Mr. Davis' speech the ceiemony of hiving the cornerstone was proceeded with by the architect, F. S. Allen, assisted by Ihe contractor, .T. I 1 '. Atkinson. A sealed box- was placed in the cavity of tho stone, containing a copy of the Los Angeles Times for tho day, a copy of the latest issue of the Covina Argus, March iMth; one of the Christmas number of the Covina Argns, commencement and latest number of The Cardinal, the high school paper; copy of Course of Study and Text Books of Covina Union High School, I1M)S-1!)U<); list, of faculty, list of trustees, list of students (in their own handwriting) March 30, 15)00. Tho ceremony was brought to a close by the band playing "The Star Span- gk-d Banner" and Rev. Harry White of tho M. E. Church made the closing prayer. SCHOOL, ELECTION YESTERDAY.
