Thursday night the graduation ex
orcises' proper commenced with a boau-
tiful solo ronderod by Mis Dysart
entitled, "Angel's Serenade." then
followed the invocation by Rev. J. II.
N. Cobb of the M. E. church. Superin
tendent Sams then announced that the
pcaker of the evening, Dr. Fletcher
Wharton had missed his train and was
unablo to bo present. This was the
only disappointment connected with
tho exercises this year. A musical
program consisting of the very best
solos, duets and qui.rtcts was substi
tuted wherein Miss Dysart, Miss Smith,
Mrs. Uaum, L. P. and G. S. Albright
were the performers, and while regrots
wero expressed at the non-appearance
of tho speaker, the mnsio wns highly
satisfactory. John S. Dwight says:
"We need somo ever-present, ever
welcoming influence that shall in
sensibly tono down our self-asserting
and avgrossivo manners, round off
the sharp, oflonsivo angularity of
character, subdue aud harmonize the
free and ceaseloss conflict of opinions,
warm out tho gonial individual hu
manity of each and every unit of
society, lest he becomo a mero member
of a party, or a shaier ot a business or
fashion " Surely those who listened
to tho musical of Thursday night will
appreciate thoso words f Mr. Dwight.
