Here is Bill Nye'sideaof what a news

multum in parvo. It is a sermon a song ,
a circusan , [ obituary , a shipwreck a sym
phony in solid brevier , a medley of life
and death , a grand aggregation of man's
glory and his shame. It is in short a
bird's eye view of all the magnanimity ,
meanness , the joys and sorrow , births and
deaths , the pride and poverty of the
world , all for a few cents.

That was a magnificent and expect
ant audience which thronged the Me-
nard , last Friday evening , to witness
and enjoy the commencement or gradu
ating exercises of the class of ,92 , Mc
Cook high school. A more intelligent ,
eager and delighted company has not
assembled within those walls in many
moons. And it is our distinct pleasure
to record the happy fact that the exer
cises were up to the highest expecta
tions of the most exacting , were indeed
of quite unusual excellence and merit ,
upon which result THE TRIBUNE de
sires to felicitate all persons concerned ,
instructors and pupils. The various
features of the programme passed off
smoothly and creditably , disclosing the
care and preparation each had received.
The orations and essays of the graduat
ing class are warmly spoken of ,
Augusta Hunt delivered the saluta
tion , selecting as the basis of her effort ,
"The Sticking Place. " It was a splen
did , thoughtful production , and was de
livered in a distinct , natural way that
quite captivated all.
Ellington Wilson followed with an
essay on "Schools and Their Masters , "
which subject she handled in a scholar
ly fashion , as to matter ; while her de
livery had all the finish and effect of
an accomplished elocutionist. Her es
say showed studious preparation and
was well received.
George LeHew's oration was formed
upon "The Governorship , " a topic of
somewhat diminished importance and
interest , but which was none the less
cleverly managed by the young man ,
who spoke confidently and clearly what
he had prepared on his subject.
Sylvia Williams built up a strong and
excellent oration on ' 'Pyramids ; " the
topic receiving a thoroughly practical
treatment at her hands. Her delivery
was clear and easy mannered , and made
a very gratifying impression on her
Susie Hunt came next with a care
fully prepared and very meritorious es
say , taking ' -Michael Angelo" as her
subject , and upon which she wrought
industriously , interestingly and profita
Clarence Whittaker was the valedic
torian. "Education in Red Willow
County" was the source of his inspira
tion. The young man has a practical
manner-of-fact way of seeing and telling
things , which , with a dash of the humor
ous , made his oration sparkle with inter
est and receive marked approval.
The following programme was given
between the essays and orations and
called out merited applause :

The profusion of flowers was alto
gether marvelous in quantity and
charming in fragrance and beauty.
McCook has never seen the like of the
exquisite floral display showered upon
the members of the graduating class
without stint. Besides the stage and
other portions of the opera house were
tastefully decorated with flowers and
In place of "a word from the super
intendent" the Rev. Hugh Magevney ,
S. J. , of the College of the Sacred
Heart , Denver , made a few remarks in
his happiest vein.
In a word it was one of the -happiest
occasions in our local history , and the
recollection of it will long remain a
sweet memory to pupils , teachers , par
ents and people. An occasion in which
all take pride.
Summer Studies in Literature , His
tory and Science.
On Wednesday , June 8that , 3 , P. M. ,
in the assembly rooms at the east ward
school building , Mr. Valentine will
meet persons who would like to enter
upon a course of definite reading or
study for a few hours each week dur
ing the summer. It is proposed to ar
range a series of conversations and
lectures free to all who care to attend
and thus to bring together for mutual
pleasure and profit , persons having
leisure and desire for more systematic
intellectual work than can readily be
carried on alone.
Don't forget the Author's Carnival ,
June 10th and llth.
The vast outpouring of people at the
Decoration day exercises in the opera
house , Monday afternoon , bore eloquent
and most gratifying testimony to the
exalted idea entertained by the people
of McCook and vicinity as to the sig
nificance and grandeur of the day ; in
fact there is no occasion national , local
or otherwise , which will call forth so
large and representative an audience as
annually assembles in our city to pay
tribute to the memory of the old vets
who have gone on before , and to strew
their graves with the choicest flowers
of spring. Assembling at the opera
hall at one o'clock , P. M. , the pro
gramme was laid down in last week's
TRIBUNE was practically carried out as
follows :
1st Opening Song by Quartette.
2nd Reading Orders by Adjutant.
3rd Song by Quartette.
4th Prayer by Rev. Stevenson.
5th Song , "Star Spangled Banner , '
by Mrs. C. B. Gray.
Gth Address by Com. J. 11. Yarger.
7th Song by Quartette.
8th Address by Comrade A. P. Welles
9th Address , "The Unknown Dead , '
i/y J. A. Wilcox.
10th Announcement ,
llth Benediction by Rev. A. W.
Coffin an.
Being supplemented by a song and
decoration of a monument to the "un
known dead , " by a chorus of little girls ,
all arrayed in white and flowers , which
was decidedly pretty and appropriate.
The addresses were befitting the oc
casion ; full of patriotic utterance for
the dead , and tending to encourage the
growth and permanency of devotion to
the flag among the living. That of
Dr. A. P. Welles , who was the orator
of the day , was particularly excellent.
Following the exercises at the opera
house a detail from the post and corps
repaired to the cemetery , where the
graves of the following-named dead
were decorated with the choicest pro
fusion of flowers in mute but beauti
ful recognition of the services per
formed in the preservation of the
Union :
C. L. Nettleton ,
D. E. Clement ,
C. E. Fox ,
Smith Gordon , 12th U. S. Infantry.
R. S. Cooley , Co. H. 1st 0. , Heavy Inf.
Chester Ward ,
Henry Walker ,
Elias Conrad ,
The custom is full of lofty sentiment
and tender memories.
J. G. Hamilton , of Pass Chritian ,
Miss. , placed the post under obligations
for a large box of lovely and fragrant
flowers from the sunny south.
The decoration of graves has , so far
as McCook is concerned at least , out
grown the number of veterans resting
here "under the sod and the dew wait
ing the judgmentday , " and has extended
to those of civilians buried in our "city
of the dead , " and many of these by
evergreens and flowers showed the pres
ence of loving hands and thoughtful
Both Memorial day services were held
in the Methodist church , Sunday morn
ing and evening , which edifice was crowd
ed to its utmost capacity upon each occa
sion. At the morning service Rev. A.
W. Coffman preached the sermon ; and
at night Rev. S. B. Crosby , of Loomis ,
Nebraska. The services were union in
their nature and were participated in
by the several Protestant clergyman of
the city. Special music was rendered
and the church was appropriately deco-

t is that we can keep this day in mem
ory of those who have gone on before.
