The Normal Students Presented an Entertaining: Programme Last Thursday Evening 1 . The High School Commencement Exercises Come Friday Evening Next, and Promise a Treat. Northern Iowa Normal school, which were held in the opera house last Thursday evening:, were the occasion of the formal graduation of 14 students from that institution—six In normal class, consisting of Frank E. Tellior, Earnest E. Wheelock, Frances B. Peek, Margaret H. Rutherford, Gertrude M. Wheelock, and Myrta E. Putsch, and eight in the commercial class, composed of the following young men: Edward A. Goetsch, Robert W. Taylor, Alfie R. Chapin, Irving E. Dodge, Elijah M. Griffith, Chas. S. Reed, Edward O. Helgasan, and Martin J. Jones. The literary exercises of the evening consisted of orations by the members of the normal class. They were all well written and without exception were presented in a manner that would reflect credit upon a school or college of greater pretentions than our normal sohool. Myrta Putch chose for her subject " Ex Caliber." Her easy manner, clear enunciation, and faultless delivery made it a pleasure to listen. The Ex Caliber of King Arthur was the sword used to promote good. There was but one, and he was the possessor. Today everyone can have an " ex caliber"— the intellect. It is the golden button waiting to be pressed by the Divine Being, when everything springs into activity. Those who have heard Ernest Wheelock before expected some show of oratory when he stepped forward to deliver his oration on the " Influence of Country schools," and they were not disappointed, Mr. Wheelock has oratorical ability and he has the right kind of ambition, so he is not going to stop because he possesses a diploma. He gave the country schools the credit of forming character and foundation of the success of the large majority of our eminent men, and cited the lives of Abraham Lincoln and Jas. A. Garfleld aa. examples of the influence of country schools and what it is possible for a country boy with ambition to attain. Belle Peek made a strong plea for a "Practical Education." Her earnest and forcible manner of delivery convinced her hearers of the benefits of such an education. A practical education is applied common sense. Theory without practice is worthless. It is the practical mind that advances civilization, drives the locomotive, dots the seas with ships and provides the conveniences and comforts of life. Gertrude Wheelock in her oration on "Lessons from Rosseau's Emile," gave in a very clear way the ideas presented in, that work. Everything that comes from nature is good. Everything that comes through the agency of man is injurious. We should live as near to nature as possible. The child should he allowed to grow up naturally. Its mind should not be crowded with or taught the ideas of others. Its will should not be curbed. While none accepted many of the ideas of Rosseau, which was not the purpose of the speaker, yet they could not help but feel that the review of the work was well written and delivered in a pleasing manner. Margaret Rutherford showed that she believed what she said by putting individuality in the delivery of herora- tlOn On " Tnaivirhin.Ht.v » an<1 ,,,^ nn ..„ cerity made one feel that every ide presented in his oration was one wit: his own. Mr. Tellier has a future be fore him that might well be the envy o others, for he hns the ability, tact, an energy to make it. Prof. Chaffee presented the diploma to the two classes in a few well-flttinj remarks, commending the commercia class especially " to the tender mercie of a wicked world." The music was exceptionally good especially the ladies' quartette consist ing of Miss Randall, Mrs. Vesper, Mrs Bowyerand Miss Tweed, who were compelled to respond to a vigorous en core. The piano solo by Mrs. Seeley also deserves special mention. Taking it all together it was one o the best commencements the norma school has had, and Prof. Chaffee ma' feel justly proud of the class of '93,,wh( have testified to the excellent instruc tion they have received from him anc his able faculty. The normal schoo was never in a more prosperous condi tion, and the best evidence of the work of the school are the kind words spoken by its students, and the high charactei of the orations delivered at the las commencements. High School Commencement. The high school commencement pro gramme for Friday evening promises one of the pleasantest entertainments ever given in Algona. The class of '9 contains many of the best known young people, whose ability to grace the occasion is well known. The exercises begin at 8 o'clock sharp and are as follows: Violin solo, Scenes de Ballet De Beriot Miss Kate Smith. Prayer. Rev. W. E. Davidson Education E dlth Reed Enchanters Mabel F.

Bagnell The time-honored but obsolete salutatory and valedictory are dispensed with, the class honors being awarded to Miss Maggie Haggard, who stands first, and Miss Mabel Smith who stands second. Flowers also will be dispensed with. The orations are limited to 10 minutes and the programme will begin on time. Seats are on sale now at 15 cents, and general admission will be 10 cents. This is to pay expenses and allow those who desire to insure seats in advance TO HAVE ELECTRIC LIGHT. An Informal Meeting with that End in View Held by the City Council Saturday Evening. Investigation in Neighboring Towns to be Made and the Proposition Then Submitted to the People. The city council at a special meeting last Sattirday evening began a movement which promises to secure electric lights this season. The meeting was called to hear what J. P. Smith of Weeping Water, Neb., had to offer, and was purely informal. After much discussion, in which citizens participated, the council voted to submit the question of granting a franchise to popular vote, and will no doubt take steps to that end as soon as they are satisfied as to the most available plan. Mr. Smith represents outside capital seeking investment, and has left a proposition with the city which can be submitted if no better one is afforded and if the council believes that it is fair to all interests. There is no doubt that the electric light for cities like Algona is a success, and that the people will favor securing i plant upon favorable terms. As it is Impracticable for the town to own it, laving so much invested in water works, and as local capital does not leem to he forthcoming to put one in, ;he only way is to grant a well-guarded ranchise to outside capital. This can safely be done by putting a .maximum price on the cost of city lighting and also on the cost of lamps for private use, and carefully specifying the kind and quality of service to be rendered ind putting the contractor under good ind sufficient bonds. So far as the pri- 'ate citizen is concerned he is under no ibligations to take the lights unless he wants them. For city lighting, of ourse, the contract would have to be ntered into at the start. Mayor Call, we learn, will devote ome time to investigating the work- ngs of electric lights elsewhere and 'ill visit our neighboring cities which ave plants. The members of the ouncil ought all to acquaint them- elves with what other towns are pay- ng, what Algona ought to pay, what ind of a plant we ought to have, and 11 about the plans proposed before the uestion is finally submitted to vote, nough towns of this size have had lants so that we ought to not repeat ny of their mistakes, but ought to get plant on proper terms from the very citing four-horse ctiariot races, the marve ous performances by hundreds of famou aerialists, gymnasts, and riders, and finall the wonderful horse fair, containing ove 350 high-bred equines, are only a few of tb many amazing features that make the Ring ling Brothers' World's Greatest Shows th most stupendous aggregation of wonder that the world ever saw. The grand free street procession will leave the show grounds promptly at 10 o'clock. It will b over a mile in length. There will be ten different kinds of music, including the chimes, a great steam calliope, and a half dozen military bands. Scores of rare wild beasts^vill be shown free and open upon the stWets, and the most gorgeous cages and chariots ever constructed will dazzle the eyes of the admiring multitude. IN selling a stock of goods to anyone there is always a big- discount given them on remnants. Now we propose to give this discount direct to our custonv ers, and ail remnants and small quantl ties of goods will be put on a table marked in plain figures, and sold regardless of cost. ' There will be dry goods, clothing, boots and shoes, hats etc., in fact everything that is in the store in small quantities. Remember this stock must be sold on account ol Jas. Taylor's sickness.
