Commencement Exercises for Both High School and Normal—Address of Dr. Benrdshear—Uev. Land! a' Vaccalaurate. Commencement season has come and gone. It brought on the usual hot weather, but that is what corn needs, so everybody is pleased. It came with flowers and decorations, white dresses and orations. At the opera house Friday evening every seat was occupied in honor of the high school graduates. A finer class has not yet been ushered out, and a program of crisp and in the main original orations was enjoyed by their guests. The school board has insisted upon originality as one of the important things in these commencement day orations and Prof. Carroll has aided them. Solos rendered by Dr. Rist, and Mrs. Sinclair, a quartette by Messrs. Tellier, Setchell, Stebbins and Smith, a trio by Mrs. Vesper and Misses Haggard and Ranks, and a chorus by high school pupils, added to the enjoyment of the evening. Miss Agnes Gilbride was the first speaker. She asked and answered why the students were there, and from that branched out into many of the whys of life.' She spoke clearly and well. Garry Gat-field followed with a very accurate description of what is known about electricity. Ho has done much work along this line, and his oration was practical and thorough. Miss Jessie Johnson illustrated how life is what we make it, bringing in many familiar but always pleasing thoughts. Charles Chubb was first in the second section. He had thoroughly mastered the history of Cuba and the merits of the present struggle for independence were clearly stated. Charles has the making of a forcible public speaker and bis friends will hope that he will not stop with hie high school graduation. Maggie Hunt's discussion of intellectual manhood was one of the best pro ductions of the evening, and Norman Hart's review of what science has accomplished was carefully written and showed that he had;mastered his subject. The third section came in with Lizzie Schichtl's original and entertaining discussion of little grammatical er rors we all carelessly make. From that she talked of the other careless errors of life, thoughtlessly made but permanent in their influence. Irma D. Clarke's oration on King Lear was one of-the best delivered of the evening. She has both ability as a speaker and the best of training, as the public have known on several occasions. She has a decided talent in the lino of platform oratory. Hortense Smith's " writing in ink" was marked by originality, good thought, and a clear style as well as by excellent delivery. She showed how tbe permanent things are written in ink, oftentimes unconsciously. One of the best orations of the even ing was Abra Robinson's on the difference of one star from another in glory, each having its own particular sphere of brilliancy, excellently written and . excellently spoken, Another was Carrie Schiohtl's on the new woman, original and to the point, The new woman is still to be evolved in hei opinion, the present product being embryonic. The class history by Trix Salisbury concluded the program, a new feature and much enjoyed. The class received a good writing up us a whole and as individuals, the personal references being both clever and in the best of taste. Supt, CarrpU's remarks in presenting the class fpr diplomas were brief .and appropriate. In granting the .... ploraas, Pres. Butler, fpr the board, addressed the graduates in a short speech whose merits have been much praised, The program as a whole has been un< eurpasssed in the history of the schools and reflected'credit uppn the class, upon their instructprs, and upon '- Tbe extreme beat pf Mcnday and tbe eujpymep-t of A >pool ev.eping out^of opera house fep the upraai eobooi , but a S QpAly audience, waj .^letaog te bear- Pr, B.eardjhea.r p: i agricultural 'college, lYbp-.,. ^PSgPQR the IMW' QQWplWk./F. opera Souse stage bj4 b&ejj 4*<wate& angl fbe PVQgvm waj excel , , fWU»My, Wlies, and A vast jestions of value, speaking in his us- lally clear and vigorous manner.

Lilly addressed the graduates in some excellent remarks and Prof. Lilly spoke very briefly in giving them di- )lomas. The normal school graduated a class of 12, who occupied the boxes (luring the exercises: W. T. Fish, A. i. Anderson, Chns. S. Johnson, Harvey Wadsworth, Lawrence Wilkinson, W. A.

Landis be- :oro the normal school graduates in the Baptist church on Sunday morning, abounded in fine thought and earnest and helpful suggestion. The fragrance of choice flowers in the church gave an added charm to the beautiful June morning. The text was John 12-24: Verily, verily I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. ' The thought seemed to be, in order for the fullest life something must be sacrificed. The kernel of wheat is surrounded with a, hard and impervious coating; the life of thekerriel'cun never be developed While encased in thishard coating, hut cast into the earth it bursts its bonds and then the grain shoots up and gives promise of an abundant harvest. So in human life the nature is dead to all its highest possibilities that is centered in itself, shut up in its own crust of selfishness, it can develop no life. Too often the higher faculties are dwarfed and fail to produce the best fruit because of the narrow outlook and lack of generous and unselfish emotions. The students' outlook is not to find greater ease, but fuller and more harmonious life; the educated life is always a life of labor. The students to whom this address was given must surely go forth to meet life's duties better equipped because of the strong and bracing words, and the spirit contained in them through this excellent sermon. The truth of the Persian psalm is the truth which must everywhere prevail: The seed must ale before the corn appears Out o£ the ground, in blade and fruitful ears. Low have these ears before the sickle lain, Ere thou canst treasure up the golden grain. The grain is crushed before the bread is made, And the bread brakes, ere life to man conveyed,, Oh! be content to die, to be laid low,: And to be crushed, and to be broken so, If them upon God's table mayest be bread, Life giving food, for souls a hungered.

Last week the papers announced that Robinson's mammoth circus would visit Algona. Now it appears that there is no Robinson's circus. The protended advance man was a fraud of a very clever type, and after swindling Blue Earth City, ho was caught at Mankato. How much money he got in Algona will probably never be known, as those he dealt with are reticent about mentioning the matter. At Blue Earth City he is credited with having taken $75. His method of operating is simple. Ho has books of contracts fully printed and makes the usual contracts for meat, bread, hay, etc., etc., for a big circus. As he finishes up the deal he mentions incidentally that he is a little short of money and would like $2, or whatever it is, and will include the amount with good interest in the. bill. It works admirably in most cases. In Algona no suspicion was aroused until Ringling's men began to bill the town, and on inquiry informed tho'se interested that there is no such tent show as Robinson's. To give his circus the appearance of reality he contracted for 150 feet of bill boards with Alex. White, and they were put up for him. Fortunately Ringlings needed the boards and found them ready. He did not' attempt .to get money of Mr. White. • The Mankato Daily Review of June 10 adds to the story. Piano Tuner Forde ge'is the paper, and happened to notice this item which will be read with interest: It now transpires, as stated in the Review last night, that the man Kline, who claimed to represent the John Robinson circus, and went about mak- :ng visionary contracts, is a fraud. Chief of Police Yates yesterday received the following telegram from an official at Blue Earth City: BLUE EAJITIL CITY, June 9.—The man representing Robinson's circus, who made contracts here, is a fraud. Arrest if there. Smooth faced, about five feet ten inches in leight, Poorly dressed. It is said he attempted to borrow money from Butcher Lang, but that he did not get it. Yesterday afternoon he wrote a letter from the jail to one pi the gentlemen with whom he had made one pf his alleged contracts, asking him to pay his municipal court fine anc set'himfreo. Ho says: "If you wil kindly pay a fine to police judge and accept an'order for same, payable 29th inst. (alleged appearance of the show in this city,) I made a fool of raysel: yesterday and the consequence is thai I am in jail. I am ashamed to ask this, but I wanted money and I don't like to telegraph for any, I will give you an order and you can get it froq car agent and won't have to wait. '. may lose my position if the papers roast me, and I will cancel the town i they do, If you can do this I will be obliged for the balance of my life," The prospective Abraham Lincoln signed and wrote across the face of the letter the dreadful word '»N'I-T."
