The commencement exercises in North
opera house Friday evening were one of
the most interesting and entertaining
that have yet been held representing the
The graduates, the High school fac
ulty, the ministers and the school board
had places on the stage, which had been
neatly draped in colors and decorated
with plants and flowers. The class of
1903 pride themselves on having seven
boys and five girls.
After music by the High school orches
tra and invocation by Bev. Luce, Mian
Emma Bagatz played a piano solo "Air-de-Ballet"
by Moskowaki, which was
brilliantly rendered. Miss Bagatz is a
talented musician and a favorite with all
of her acquaintances, and is a credit to
the class she represents.
Miss Grace Lewis then delivered the
salutatory. She thanked those who had
ao ably assisted them in all their coarse
through the school life, the public for
their patronage of the school lecture
course, thus helping them in making
their High school library one of the best
in the state.
People coming in from the north
part of the county report that all the

Mrs. Richard Barney and Mrs. Frank

those ladies were invited snd although
the rain kept many from attending, the
house was crowded with ladies who were
anxious to meet them after their return
from a year spent in California. The
amusement of the afternoon was a guess

ispreaented by pictures. Refreshments

There seems to be quite a difference
of opinion between the Telegram of this
city and the Free Lance at Schuyler in
regard to the "flopping" of the populist
newspapers. Sprecher says they "flop
ped" to tbe democratic party and How
ard contends they "flopped" to the
republican. Both seem to agree that
there has been a change of heart among
the fusion brethren of a few years ago.

The body of Michael Morrissey, a
former well known resident of this city,
who lost his life in Canada about a year
ago, arrived at Plattsmouth for burial
one day last week. He made the trip to
Canada to look after some land interests.
One day his lifeless body was found near
the road side some distance from his
destination. At first fool play was sus
pected, but the theory later advanced
was that he had frozen to death. The
body was buried there, but as the widow
lives in Plattsmouth arrangements were
made to transfer the body to the family
burial lot in the Catholic cemetery of
well written composition and Homer was
equal to the occasion in presenting it to
W. X. Hensley, as one of the school
board, then presented the members of
the class with their diplomas, which was
prefaced by an address to the class giv
ing them words of advice and counsel.
After music by the orchestra and
benediction by Bev. Basmussen the
audience were dismissed.
The class contained beside those who
took part on the program: Robert
Drawbaugh, Mable Drawbaogh, Mary
Lewis, Samuel Rector, Oscar DeLand
and Albert B rugger, and the program
does not in any way signify that those
taking part were chosen from those with
the highest standing. Albert Brugger
has the highest general average for the
four years in the High school and Miss
Hoffman stands second. For the honors
in the senior year Vtbb Hoffman and
Robert Drawbaugh average the same
markings and it has not yet been decided
which will receive the prize of the schol
arship to Bellevue college for this.
Schuyler is having a frightful time
with high water. One of the incidents
which we take from the Sohnyler Sun
gives an ideaof the unpleasant situation:
"Prof. E. B. Sherman has a novel method
of navigation in his cellar. Of course
the place is flooded like all the rest, but
the prafessor does not let a little thing
like that worry him in the least. When
he wants anything in that cellar, he
steps in a big wooden bucket with one
foot and in a tub with the other and
when he lifts a foot the tub (or bucket)
will rise and float to where he wants to
put his foot down and thus he per
ambulates. Next week the county institute will
begin its two weeks session, the first
week being devoted to the institute lec
tures. The examinations will be held on
the 13th, 15th, 16th and 17th. Sup't
Leavy has secured three excellent in
structors who will help to make the
work of value. S. Y. Gillam of Mil
, Waukee, Wis., Sup't Fulmer of Pawnee
City, and Sup't Atkinson of York are all
gentlemen of high educational standing.
Columbus citizens should attend the
institute sessions not only because they
would find the lectures very interesting
but to show to the teachers and those in
charge that they are concerned in their
work. Some time durim? the institute
lectures will be given by State Sup't
Fowler and Prof. Gfllam."

Hiss Jennie Gaseer, a Methodist
deaconess, who is taking a course in the
training school in Chicago for missionary
work, gave an interesting talk at the
Epworth League service Sunday evening.
The city council met in regular
session Monday evening. An ordinance
to amend the fire limit ordinance was
read the first and second time and will
be read the third time at the Wednesday
evening special meeting. The council
passed a resolution to condemn the
building known-as the Phillippa property
on Olive street, block No. 85, and the
owners are to be instructed to remove
the same inside of sixty days from date
of notice. The council will publish a
notice of special assessment for the pur
pose of levying a special tax for building
sidewalks. Council will meet again
Wednesday and Saturday evenings. The
city board of equalization are in session
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of
Thursday's Omaha World-Heraled
contained the following reference to the
proposed power canal project: "Pro
pects for the building of the Platte river
power canal this year are declared by
parties familiar with the situation to be
unexpectedly promising. It is stated
that within the past few weeks steps
have been taken that put an entirely
new aspect on the proposition. Both
the Columbus and the Fremont projects
have been realigned, and it is declared
that either one of them is in a fair way
to go-through, but that in the very na
ture of things but one of them will be
carried out. Well advised parties re
gard it as certain that one of them will
be a go, and look to see actual construc
tion begun this year. The Columbus
people claim to have their scheme al
ready financed, provided they can show
contracts for the use of ICMXX) horse-,
power from big consumers in Omaha.
To this end efforts have lately been di
rected toward securing contracts with
the street railway company and the
electric light company. President Frank
Murphy of the street railway company
is now in New York, and it is stated that
his trip had to do with this very matter.
On the other hand, there has recently
been a reorganization of the Fremont
people, and it ia quietly reported that
Ogden Armour and P. A Valentine have
become interested in the project, with
excellent prospect that the necessary
capital will shortly be secured. It is
