High School Commencement
Tbo high school graduating exercises
will occur Tuursday night May 31st at
the M E churchDr Thomas EGreen
who has been chosen mb the speaker will
use for the subject of hiB address The
IKey to the XXth Century Wo doubt
if any man ever came before the wide
public of the Ijceum world with such
jrapidityormetsucb a universal welcome
cas has greeted him Just a year ago
obedient to what he considered a call to
31 wider ministry be resigned a pastor
ate bo had held for fifteen years over one
of the largest Episcopal Churches in the
United States and stepped upon the
platform Today ho is recognized as
the head and leader of th5 prosent gen
eration of popular orators He has
lectured practically every available
night of the winter and spring On bis
second trip into New England he was
given such a reception as to be an ova
tion No one on the platform today so
nearly represents the high intellectual
and oratorical standards of the older
school of Beecher Phillips and Brooks
ao does Dr Green Ho unites ripe and
road scholarship with vital magnetic
personality He not only talks as few
mien can but he talks about something
so forcefullyso exbaustiveIyso convinc
ingly that his lecture is stronger after
-weeks of recollection than in the im
mediate charm of its delivery He is a
5man with a message and he spells it in
syllables of lambent flame
Narrow Escape from Death
Little Charlieotto daughter of Mrs
IMayme Blanding had a very narrow
escape fromdeatb last Saturday aftter
coon under the cars in the McCook
yard A lady another little girl and
nerself were passing between cars
when the switch engine gave one end of
the string of cars a slight impulse In
her hurry to draw her little friend to
safety the Blanding child fell and the
car wheel caught her leg above the
ankle bruising the leg very severely
Had the car moved another inch her leg
would have been mashed and her life
probably lost The car had to be
pinched away from the spot before
the little one Couldr be liberated bo
tightly was Tier leg squeezed under the
wheel She is getting on nicely how
ever and will doubtless be able to be
about as usual soon with no ill effects
of the accident
Such accidents but emphasize the
urgency of the need of a foot bridge over
sthe tracks in the McCook yard

McCook Visited by Three Incipient
Fires Friday Night
The Franklin Block Occupied by Jamb
McAdams Is Unly Building Dam
aged to Any -
of No Moment
McCook had the very unusual experi
ence last Friday night of being visited
by three fires That none of them
amounted to a large damnge is no fault
of the party or parties responsiblefor
them t
The principal fire was in the Franklin1
block occupied by James McAdams
Here the damage to the building was
about 200 while Mr McAdam3s loss
will be less than 100 The fire was
practically confined to the area way and
started at the foot of the steps leading
down from West Dennison street The
step some of the timbers under the
sidewalk the door and window in the
basement of the building were all
damaged more or less at this point The
fire just made entrance into the base
ment when the department got busy
so that the damage to goods stored
there was small
The departments activities were
somewhat deterred at the outset by the
inexpliable actions of some unknown
person who shut off the water once at a
fire hydrant and again disconnected the
hose during the progress of the fire
The party was finally rapped over the
head with a hydrant wrench but disap
peared and could not be identified or
found afterwards when there was more
time to devote to him
The other fires were confined to out
houses in the rear of the Fleischmann
saloon and of the Ludwick furniture
store and the damage was practically nil
The city authorities have taken action
to more thoroughly protectthe city in
this regard at night
