had diplomas from soma of our great
est institutions of learning, while some
of the most cultured he had met had
probably never seen tho inside of a
oollege, showing that simply because
a man graduates from a cidl-i' he is
not necessarily smart. He "aid that
young school children's parent should
not worry about the occupation their
children are to follow, but should eo
that they became well educated so
thy would be prepared for whatever
The exercises were opened by a song
from the high school chorus. IJev.

Ensv Ball With Hastings.
Tuesday of this week tho Hastings
ball buys came to town; yestcrdav they
wont back home in a "balled up" frame
of mind as a result of their severe de
feats. However, their work is as
cleanly and gentlemanly as the most
exacting could wish to sec. With
assiduous practice they will develop
into clean, steady and forceful men.
This game was not marked by any
thing unusual in the way of good
playing, though Hastings stole four
bases, struck out four men and getting
two bases on balls, while lied Cloud
stole two bases, made 'ite double play.
..truck out five men. made four two
base hits and hit one man with pitched
ball. Score by innings;

but after that he settled down to busi

his unexpected, good natured and un
usual pitchers' work. After the third

in ink with products peculiar to that '
s. .ti-.n pasted on. The fifth grade,
also had political maps of South Amer

The .seventh grade speiimany days
on their geography exhibit and as a
result, gave a carefully moulded relief
map of South America. They aNo ex
hibited compositions with appropriate
cover designs. The drawings made
with colored crayon and charcoal by
this -.'radc were worth considerable at
tention. One or two tine Ink and pen
cil drawings were also shown.
All of this woik was prepared entire

their teachers. They certa'.nl. deserve
a great deal of credit for the neatness
and careful work done. An exhibit of
this nature ought certainly to increase
the degree of interest and judging
from the number who were present at
Wednesday's exercises, ilie patrons
wire vcrv much interested.
A Fire Scire
Tuesday morning a tlrv in I'd Ashlin's
chop house on east Fourth avenue
routed the lire laddies out. For a
minute or two it looked as if a serious
blaze was on tap owing v a gasoline
stove getting beyond the "ontrol of
Mrs. Ashliu and daughter, but the
prompt presence and help of neighbors
soon brought things to a uictus. A

On Wednesday afternoon at the high
school assembly room the kindergar
ten and grades, from one to seven in
clusive, gave a program and exhibit.
The proirram consisted of songs, drills,
dialogues and plays. Each grade was
represented and proved their training
by the fact that not one failure was
made during the hour. The exhibit
covered two walls of the assembly
The kindergarten work consisted of
paper-cutting, sewing cards, and paint
ings. The first grade added paper foldings,
mats, painted post cards and some ex
ceptionally pretty wall-paper designs.
It certainly tooV. a great deal of self
1 control for the busy fingers of these
little folks to have. cut. folded and
1 painted their many designs so care
1 The second grade gave some original
' ealendardcsigns and composition work.
The third, fourth, ami fifth also gave
'original ealendardcsigns and the ori
1 ginality displayed by these four grades
' along this line was much better than

The second, third and fourth grade
composition work with illustrations
was fine. They expressed themselves
in childish language, but clearly and
grammatically. The drawings' of the
north ward school building by third
grade pupils were especially worthy
of notice. This grade also exhibited
.some fine charcoal drawings.
To illustrate the beginning year in
geography, the fourth grade exhibited
colored maps of Webster county.
The product maps shown by fifth
and sixth grades showed much careful
work and study. The fifth grade gave
