CLASS OF 1913
Fifteen Young Ladies and Five
Young Men Presented a Pleas
Last night at the Parmele
theater the class of 1913 of the
Plattsmouth High school bid fare
well to their school days and
entered forth upon their future.
The class of fifteen young- ladies
and five boys presented a very
pleasing appearance on the stage
as thei-'urtain rose for the final
act of their school days. Rev. W.
L. Austin of the Methodist, church
delivered the invocation in a
very impressive manner ieforo
the audience that stood while the
minister asked the divine blessing.
The first number on the com
mencement program was the sob
of Miss Ferris York, "The Spring
Is Come." by . White, which was
given in her usual charming man
ner and displayed the beauty and
power of her voice to its utmost.
The salutatory for the class
was given by Samuel C. Windham,
who chose as his subject "Con
servation of Our National Re
sources," and in his address
covered the question of preserv
ing for future generations the
great natural wealth of the coun
try and not allowing it to be ex
ploited by the commercial free
hooters w ho have in the past been
allowed so free a hand in posses
sing the wealth of the nation
through the timber, coal, iron and
mineral lands of the west and of
The address was one that show
ed much thought and care in its
preparation, and was much en
joyed by the audience, as the
speaker brought out the different
points of his argument in favor
of the public domain being pre
served for the benefit of the pub
lic and not a few corporations
The address of Mr. Windham
was followed by the valedictory
of the class, delivered by Donal
E. Ames, who had taken for the
title of his address "The True
Value of Character," and his fare
well for the class was on the most
vital of subjects to those just
entering upon the battle with the
world that of keeping their
character above reproach and of
having one that they might be
proud of. He spoke of the char
acterislics that had distinguished
four great men or modern and
ancient limes Lincoln, Glad
stone, Solon and Seneca, the
philosopher how their great re
gard for a strong normal char
acter had made their true great
ness and was what the world ad
mired most in them. Mr. Arries,
in behalf of the class, bid a fare-1
well to the faculty of the High
school and the membeers of the
board of educat ion, expressing the
deep gratitude of the students for
the splendid education given them
and he also spoke a few parting
words to the members of the class
of 1913, who will soon have drift
ed apart from their old school day
associations and entered upon the
different walks in life that they
have fixed Upon.
Miss Helen llerold of Lincoln
was on the program for a vocal
number, having selected "To
You," by Hawley, and "A Birth
day," by Woodman, as her offer
ings, and they were rendered in a
manner that greatly impressed
everyone with the wonderful
sweetness and clearness of her
beautiful voice and this was one
of the finest selections heard in
this city for many days.
The orator of the evening, Rev.
Ernest Wiay O'Neil of Chicago,
wa9 introduced by Hon R. B.
Windham, who is an uncle of tho
talented gentleman, and who was
closely associated with him dur
ing tho time he was a resident
here and his remarks, while few,
were much appreciated by the
Rev. O'Neil at once launched
into his address, that of "The
Seers of Visions," and his re
marks throughout were most im
pressive and scholarly and show
ed the wonderful nower of elo
quence possessed by this gentle- J
man. His address was devoted
to (he wonders that have been'
done in tho world by the men who 1
saw things beyond the ordinary!
eye of man, who pictured future
glories and achievements for the
human race, and by their actions
and efforts had brought forth the,
most splendid and uplifting re-'
forms in the history of the world.
The speaker also spoke on the
subject of a more patriotic
citizenship and urged those of
foreign birth to join in the mak-
ing of better Americans for the
future bv making the ideals of
our government their own.
The graduation scholarship
'which is given each year to the
'member of the graduating class
having the largest number of cre
dits for the four years work was
awarded to Miss Bculah Sans.
After the address of Rev. O'Neill
the members of the class tiled
past and received their diplomas,
the march being played by Mr. E.
H. Wescott, and after the class
had returned to their positions
Superintendent Hrooks addressed
the class for a few minutes com
mending them upon having

DENT AT MANLEY
John Tighe, a Prominent Citizen,
Badly Injured and His Son
Receives Severe Burns.
SOIL SURVEY IH THE
STATE OF NEBRASKA
Yesterday at the Manley Eleva.
tor an accident that might termi
nate fatally for John Tighe, the
owner of the elevator, and one of
the prominent citizens of that lo.
cality. It seems that yesterday
morning while working around
the elevator, Leo Tighe, a son of
Mr. Tighe, received some very se
vere burns on his face caused by
the explosion of some gasoline,
and he was forced lo secure the
services of a surgeon to fix up
the wounds. In the afternoon the
accident that came near having a
fatal termination, occurred as
Mr. Tighe was fixing some of the
machinery, and while working
around the shafting got caught in
the belting, and before the ma
chinery could be stoppeil he was
carried around the shafting fifty
or sixty limes, and as a result of
the terrible pounding received a
broken arm, and had his chest
crushed in badly and a number of
ribs broken. The condition of

The Blue and the GJray where are they today?
Almost as a dream or the ast.
Not long ere the spring sweet blossoms shall bring
To scatter o'er the graves of the last.
The last ah! how few and where are the blue?
All all of them now are yruy.
Their steps have grown slow too soon we shall know
Neither the Blue or the Gray.
Soon all shall resond to the roll-call beyond,
Leaving naught but memories dear,
Hut honor and love for those gone above
Shall soften the heart-ache and tear.
Though marching today, in battle array,
Toward the grim enemy, Death,
They're brave, as of old, while facing, so bold,
Him who would steal the last breath.
Though repulsed by his hand, on the great border land,
Their Leader has promised to save,
And next morning's sun shall find victories won
Over grim death and the grave.
But, "Farewell," we must say, to the Blue and the Gray,
When they are mustered for rest.
When the last bugles sound, when the last taps resound,
Calling our dearest and best.
But, ohl what a void, where so much was enjoyed,
When the fife and the drum shall be still,
When no weary feet tramp round the vacant camp,
When the field is lonely and chill.
Though no laurels crown these heads of renown,
Their brave deeds we all may trace,
And halos of love shall linger above
Their last earthly resting place.
O'er the brave and true, the red, white and blue
Shall float, each Memorial Day,
And flowers and tears, through the coming years,
Shall fall for both Blue and Gray.
When our army vast, is quartered at last,
In that land, which seems far away,
An assembly as great, outside shall await,
To join the loved Blue and Gray.
When our waiting is o'er and we've reached the far shore,
All sorrows shall vanish away,
For close by the Gate, in white robes, shall wait
Our loved who wore blue and gray.

JUDGE RAMSEY SUFFERING
DEPARTS FOR LINCOLN
TO INTERVIEW THE RAIL-
President II. A. Schneider and
Attorney A. L. Tidd departed last
evening for Lincoln, where they
will appear before the railway
commission to ask that body to
set a date for hearing the request
of the Commercial Club of this
city for the relief in the matter of
train service between this city and
the rest of the county. The club
took the matter up with the of
ficials of the Missouri Pacific
some lime ago and were assured
of some relief, but when after a
wait of several months the matter
was refused, it was decided that
the only thing to do was to carry
the issue up to the commission
for adjustment. Other towns
have received recognition at the
hands of this road whose claims
were not half so urgent as ours
tnd they were granted, and it is
time to sec if the state cannot
procure, what the request failed
For the past few weeks Judge
Basil S. Ramsey has been con
fined to his home, suffering from
an attack of sciatic rheumatism,
which has been holding our old
friend in its grip, and he does not
seem to be able to secure relief
from the malady. It was caused
some weeks ago when the judge
caught a severe cold, and it was
feared at first that it might de
velop into pneumonia, but finally
took a turn into rheumatism, and
since that time he has been
sorely affected by the complaint.
The judge finds great difficulty in
getting around and is hardly able
to go from one floor of his
home lo the other, even with the
use of his cane. His condition
will be learned of with great re
gret by the many friends of this
worthy gentleman and they will
trust he may soon be able lo re
sume his active life, as he is
greatly missed on the streets,
where he has been a prominent
figure for so many years.
Parties Reported Married.
It is reported on the streets to
day that again has Dan Cupid got
ten busy and found lodgement for
his darts and joined together two
happy hearts. The statement has
been given out that some few daj-3
ago in Omaha Ralph Sherwood
and Miss Mary Svelah, formerly
of this city, but at present of
South Omaha, were married. If
this is true the young people have
"slipped one over" on their
friends here, as no intimation was
given of the event, although it had
been looked for by their friends.

morning from his home at Murray
