Atter music by the quartette,
MatfKie K. Salford delivered the
class prophesy, "Look in Forward."
Ihe young lady dwelt decidedly
upon the ideal, imitating Uellamy
in a marked degree. The day was
looked for with anticipation and
hope when all the men wouId

that each member of Hi., r-i

The poet of the class, Frank

After another excellent selection
by the quartette, Janette Morgan,
valedictorian of the class, delivered
an oration, choosing tor a subject

-ot Anchored." The speaker meta
phorically referred to the nine
graduates as nine ships bein
launched upon the turbulent waters
of life and urged that they be
manned by a spirit of industry and
perseverance that they might enter

he paid a happy tribute to the
teachers, assuring them of the high
regard i:i which they were held by
the members of the class and as
suring them of their continued
support. She then tha ikerl

for their efforts to expend the same

The class address by Dr. W. A

pressed the hope that they would

in a few well chosen words, deliv

The quartette again favored
the audience with a select;, af(--

The exercises upon the whole
were far above the average. The

The industrial exposition at Rock
wood hall is something new for this
city. There has been complaint
from a few parents on nrr., t
their children having to work with
"mud," as they sa, but if they will
only take the pains to go to the hall
and see the work executed by the
'"'i'"8 111 ine "liferent grades, they
will change from a growler and will
have nothing but words of praise
for the instructors, and to those a
a special invitation is extended to
come and look overfhe'r wo-k.
