This has been a busy week for Su
perintendent Dudley, his assistants
ant) the pupils of the high school.
The exercises of commencement
week began Sunday evening, when the
Methodist church was completely filled
with the pupils, patrons of the school
and their friends to listen to the an
nual baccalaureate sermon, which was
this year delivered by the llcv. Ward
L. Austin, pastor of the M. E. church.
The graduates and their instructors
occupied seats in the center section of
the church, and the young ladies
looked very charming in their white
dresses, black caps and gowns. The
two boys in the class looked very lone

was well rendered by the church choir,

The progrnm Wednesday evening
consisted of u short musicale program
and an address by Hon. G. W. Berge
Although the exercises were schedul
ed to begin at 8 o'clock, the audience
was very slow in assembling ami it
was nearly 0 o'clock before the cur
tain rose for the lirst number. Seated
on the stage with the speaker of the
evening,, were the members of the
class. Superintendent Dudley, Misses
Ellis and Dueker, principal and assist

At the close of Mr. Berge's address
Miss Josephine Mizer sang "The Night

The faculty of the high school made
no mistake when they invited G. W.
Ilerge to deliver the address to the
class. Mr. Herge was at his best Wed
nesday evening, and the audience be
came so intensely interested in what
he was saying that they forgot to ap
plaud when he made some of his
strongest points. The trend of Mr.
llerge's address was to the effect that
it never pays to compromise with
wrong-cloing or msiioiiesty, ami tunc

run. As an illustration he reviewed
the history of slavery in this nation
from the time of its introduction in
the Virginia colonies In HUH until its
obolition in 18(11, showing How great
men had at all times flirted with the
question and accepted compromise
which did not settle the disputes, but
merely put them to sleep for short
periods. lie showed how Clay and
Webster both lost the presidency of
the United States by compromising
upon the question. Then came Har-
riet lleecher Stowe, whose great story
giving the true facts concerning slav-
cry had fanned the dying embers of I
anti-slavery agitation into a liame that
did not die until the shackles were
stricken from four millions of slaves,
through the firmness of President Lin
coln, the man who did not know the
meaning of the word 'compromise"
when he knew or thought he was in
the right. Mr. Ilerge also told how,
had, the colonists been willing to com
promise with England by accepting

ed and raised in the cities had to
ep step. He also had a few words
say about the young men and
young women who thought more of
eir personal appearance than did of
what they really were or expected to
bb in this world. On the whole, Mr.
llerge's address was very entertaining
and instructive, und should have a

The exercises were opened with a

The class quartet, Misses Josephine
Mizer, Frances Nesbitt, Ethel Garber
and Edna Austin, sang "To the Sun-

with "Hy the Sea," both of which
numbers were beautifully rendered
and showed the careful training given
them by Miss Igou.
Miss Frances Ward took for her sub
ject "Progress of, the Aryan Race,"
and told how the descendants of this
people had migrated fr6m Persia to
the countries of Europe, and Anally to
America, where the highest state of
civilization had been reached.
Perhaps the most enjoyable number
on the program was James father's
oration, "The Myth of Coronado."
"Jim" is a rather original sort of a
young man, and his handling of the
story of the wanderings of t'oranado
and his soldiers of fortune in their
search for the mythical city of "(Jul

to be paved with gold, was appreciat

proportions of a scandal. New rows
crop out in the commission with as
beautiful regularity as the revolutions

the country are growing weary of it.
The passage of the free alcohol bill
this weelc will be hailed with acclaim
by the whole country. The farmers
have been deeply interested in the
success of the measure, as the agricul
turists of Nebraska flooded their scnu
ators and representatives with peti
tions for its passage. The bill be
comes eHVetive January 1. and it is
expected to revolutionize the lighting
and heating interests of the country.
The alcohol can be distilled from
grain, potatoes and a number of other
vegetables. It is said that three gal
lons may be produced from one bushel
of corn, and that the residue after the
alcohol Is extracted Is just as valuable
as before as feed for stock.
President Roosevelt is as pleased as

He congratulated Representative Foss,

tee, this week when the Illlnoisan

due in large measure to Mr. Foss' in

the naval establishment that the
measure went through. The monster

Burlington yards early Wednesday

young lady's parents aroused her light
ing blood, mid she proposed to her
youthful lover that theysteal the teiuit

proposed to take her home, then take
the team and sell it, and with the
money they would run away, get mar
ried and have an enjoyable Uoury
moon. In accordance with this phm
young Callahan started out to sell the
team, which was a valuable one. At
one lime he was offered SIM) for tint
outfit, but refused it. The sheriff got
on his trail so closely that he was
compelled to abandon the team and.
take to railroading. The authorities.-
at Holdrege were notified to look out
for him, but when they went through
the train he was chatting with a young
lady, with whom he had picked up tint
acquaintance, and his appearance win
so innocent that he completely footed
the ofllcers. He tried the suine gumi:
at Oxford but the cops Uteris were not
so easily fooled, and he was arrested
and taken to Alma, where the pleaded"
guilty at his preliminary examination.
