HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES.
Interesting Closing Exercises at the
A Meritorious Rendition of the "Mer
chant of Venice" — Essays and
The Sacramento High School had
another highly successful closing last
Standing room was at a premium at
the Metropolitan Theater when the cur
tains parted and disclosed the happy
party of graduates. The young ladies
were all clad in handsome white dresses,
and occupied the front seats, while the
young men occupied the rear rows. The
stage was tastily set, with flowers and
plants set about here and there with care
The exercises opened with an invoca
tion by Bey. W. C. Merrill.
Miss Mabel Richardson then delivered
a "salutatory" in Latin. Sho demon
strated that she had been a close student
of the language, her pronunciation being
A CHOD DKUATE.
Tho "I'teas for Special Training," by
six graduates (Charles Goethe acting as
tho judge), which was the noxt feature,
was v<_y interesting.
Miss Mabel Fisher pleaded for the study
of modern languages, and described the
advantages of being an expert in the sev
eral modern tongues. "Ho who can
speak many tongues has the advantage of
many who can speak but one tongue,"
■he said. She also told of the benefits to
the business man, the diplomat and the
philosopher. "No one," she concluded,
knows his own tongue who knows no
Lester Hinsdill stood up for "History
and Political Science.'' He spoke of tlio
advantages of arbitration and held tip
the Behring Sea difficulty as an example.
In this case, ho said, narrow-minded
political scientists predicted that nothing
T)ut war would ever settle tho matter.
Arbitration, however, was speedily bring
ing the matter to an amicable settlement.
He also referred to the tariff and other
results of tho labors of political scientists.
It was Maud Richards' office to mako a
plea for litorature —to show the influence
of the world of thought upon the world
of action. She made a strong plea, and
caused the judge to blink in apparent
perplexity. In that world she said things
were called by their right names. The
two grand departments of literature had
their uses. Prose was the drudgo be
tween man and man—poetry tlie delicate
and graceful ornament. The young lady
paid a high tribute to Shakespeare and
others of the world's greatest literary
Charles Lusk plead for "Natural Sci
ence." What would the world be with
out the knowledge of medicine? Tho
people would be barbarous, superstitious
and fanatical. Ho referred to the advan
s of a knowledge of chemistry and
the other branches of natural science,
and drew a picture of" the condition man
kind would find itself in without that
Lottie Steffens argued that the science
of mathematics was tb" most important
of all. There was no idle guessing about
tho mathematician. She declared that
she had become convinced tbat it was not
love, but mathematics, tiiat made tho
world go round. She told of the rail-
Is, Steamboats, and other great re
sults of mathematics, and, altogether,
made a sound argument on the subject.
Cyrus Miller was the last of the de
baters. His pies was for tho classics, and
ho made a good argument.
The judge said that the arguments were
all unanswerable. Still there was some
thing wanting. There was a proverb,
"In union thero is strength." Each of
the specialties by itself would be useless.
Uo therl'ore advised that in making up a
complete education all should be in
MI"SIC AND KSSAVS.
At the conclusion of the debate tho
graduates arose and, under the baton of
Mrs. Addie Carter, sang a charming
chorus entitled the "Flowers' Prayer."
The chorus was greatly beautified "by a
violin accompaniment by Miss Lottie
Steflens, and two llutes, played by Sam
uel Simmons and Cyrus Miller. Ruth
Catliu accompanied on the piano.
Miss Anna McDonald then delivered an
essay <>n "Home." Sho told of tho
rise of the mighty empire, and then
of the terrible crash. Rome was crushed
by Us own iuxuriousness. Home, she
said, is now but a shadow of its former
self Only ruins remain, to stand as
a warning to other nations of the inev
itable- curse of luxury.
Miss Lura McKay gave an interesting
talk on "How to Succeed as a Pupil."
She dealt with tin many elements of sue
l in a masterly manner, and advised
her hearers that books were the best
Misst s Kate lierrick and Martha Hicks
encaged in an original dialogue on
"Woman Suffrage." The tilt was highly
Interesting and afforded much amuse
ment. Miss Herrick upheld woman's
rights, ami argued that woman should
vote. On the other hand, Miss Hicks
t!.<Might that women should not dabble In
politics, but should stay at homo and
wash the dishes and mind the babies.
The coldest ended in a "draw."
Belle Carrington sang the "Magnetic
Waltz" with pleading ell'ect and was
Ernest Johnson delivered an oration
on "American Citizenship" in a forcible
manner and in a clear and distinct voice.
He showed the power the American had
by his vote. He could remedy the faults
in the law and prevent disorder, disunion
and dangers winch threaten tho nation,
lie said it was, true that politics were be
coming corrupt, but it was within the
power of the American youth, when he
attained the age whicli entitled him to
vote, to correct this detestablo state of
Miss Jennie Herrick began her talk,
on "The Future of California." by ask
ing who dared to predict but that her fu
ture was a grand one. She asserted that
the coming years would prove hor the
uio_t productive section on the continent.
Her soil, unlike that of tho New England
States, would never become worn out
or unproductive, and time would develop
moreof her riches than have beeu dis
covered In the past.
The class song. "Harp of the Winds,"
was a pretty chorus and excellently sung.
Miss Emms Foster told of the attrac
tive powers of the California poet, Pro
fessor K. EL Sill, whom sho termed as
"The Priest of Nature." She quoted
some of ins beautiful versos dssenptive
of nature, and In all paid him and his
poetry a high tribute.
Claries Stevenson gave a brilliant ora
tion of "Tb- American Laborer." He
told the old story of bow the few are be
coming rich and the many poor. Strikes
were convulsing the nations. Whilo a
fow were successful the majority were
not. The contest between labor and cap
ital is becoming mi.re and more aggra
vated e\ cry day. The causes were many.
Capital is as asa rue unmerciful; and the
immigration of foreign labor was proving
disastrous to the American laborer.
Miss Anna Neuboog, having met with
an accident and sprained her wrist, wa>
unablo to give the instrumental solo tho
programme called for.
Tlie curtain was dropped at this junc
ture and the stage set for the trial scene of
the "Merchant of Venice." Tho cast of
characters was made up as follows: The
Duke of Venice, Charles Goethe; An
tonio, the Merchant of Venice, Joseph
Shannon; Bssssnio, Fred Elworthy; < .u
--tiano, Cyrus Miller; Shyloek, Samuel
Simmons; Salcrio, Frank Dray; Portia,
Maud Jonssj Nerissa, Mabel Fisher;
Clerk of tho Court. Lester Hinsdill. Oth
ers of tho graduates took the parts of
magnifieoes, officers of tho court, guards,
The rendition of this scene was a treat.
The young people who took part had all
rehearsed their parts thoroughly and
I there was not a hitch. To Miss Jones and I
| Mr. Simmons, in the principal parts be- J
j long the honors. Both did excellently, a
j Mr. Simmons' characterization ot* the 1
cruel Jew has seldom been surpassed by J
an amateur, and Miss Jones carried out £
the part of the young doctor with tho .
grace and ease of a veteran of tlie stage.
Cyrus Miller as < _atiano and Fred El- f
worthy as Hassan io, and Charles Soothe ]
as the Duke aro also deserving especial
mention for the manner in which they
recited their respective party.
THK VALKDICTOUY. 3
Aftor the stage had been reset and the
graduates had reappeared, Miss Nellie
Mott, who achieved the honor of deliver- t
ing the valedictory, addressed tho Assem- '
bly. Her remarks wore brief, delivered
with clearness, and in a feeling manner. ]
She referred to tho pleasant days tiie '
class had spent in tho High School during '
the course of study in that institution, 1
and of tlie care and patience the teachers
had shown in instructing those under 1
their charge. All, she said, could not
achieve fame, but there was achieve- •
ment whicli everyone could and ought to
seek, and that was to be bravo and honest
men and women, and to always keep be

Judge G. A. Blanchard then delivered
tho address of the evening. "At tlie
close of your school days," ho said,
"you find yourselves at the beginning

Before presenting tho diplomas to tho
graduates Superintendent Hart could not
resist tho temptation of saying a few
words to the class. Ho said the scene ro
minded him of tho beautiful words of the
poet ShakcsjH .110, that "all the world is a
stage and men and women are tho play
ers.'" "You," said he, "liave passed one
of the acts iv the drama of life -tho act of

Addressing the audience, Mr. Hart told
tern of the nigh standing the school oc
ipied as an institution of learning, and
ated that a graduate is admitted to tho
tato University without the slightest ox
inination. Their diplomas aro pass
orts sufficient to entitle them to become

tears as freely as relatives.
A dearly loved one borne away
From the home—from the household band;
Surely there's been a place prepared
In ttie house not made with human hands.
For he must have known tho treacherous
Could not well be trusted with life;
Or, did he forget its danger
In tlie absence of borrow and strife?
He wns only a moment iv crossing
Over tlie boundary lino,
And his death, though lonely, was*painless,
As he bade farewell to Time.
To us, life seemed all before him,
A pang—lt had only begun:
Its problems assailed with youth's vigor,
Lo I the hand-writing reads: "It Is done!"
In lii.s hand <_od holdeth the waters;
At his bidding they give up their hold;
No noise of the cannon was needed
To find tlie lost one's abode.
Otiwa^d, and onward, nnd onward—
Where the ages never grow dim—
Redemption has purchased an entrance,
And death may not inter in.

The Turf Club May Possibly Follow
the State Fair.
A Proposition to Give a Record Meet
ing In this City—Depends Upon
"You need not be surprised to hear of
the Capital Turf and Driving Club giving
a fall meeting this year," said ono of the
Directors of that organization to a re
porter last evening.
"Thore has been considerable talk on
the subject of late," ho continued, "and
I think it very likely that it will come to
a head soon. The idea is to give what is
known as a 'record meeting'—to give
breeders who did not get in on the cir
cuits to give thoir horses 1891 records.
You see, it would be thoir last chanco.
Tho talk now is to give it about a month
after tho Stato Fair races. It would not
interfere then with any other meetings.
If we can get out without losing money
we won't kick. It would bring money
to the city, and serve to keep up the in
terest in horse-racing. Nothing will be
done, however, until we can hear from a
sulHcient number of breeders. If enough
of them will signify their willingness to
go in for records, to guarantee a good mcot
ing wo will sail in. If not, we will drop
tho matter. Wo would not like to lose
money on the meeting because wo want
to havo as big a sack as possible for tho
noxt spring meeting, which, allow me to
tell you, will bo the grandest spring
meeting ever given in Sacramento."
"Do I think that the people will have
had enough after tho Stato Fair races?
Why, bless you, no. Did 3-ou ever hoar
of tho people getting enough of horse
racing? Why, the State Fair races will
only whet their appetite for more, and
nothing would be more welcome than a
record meeting such as we aro con
templating. 1 don't say, mind you, that
this matter has been definitely settled
upon. Not at all. It is only being |
talked of. But Ido say that if the club j
gets sufficient encouragement from tho !
I breeders, it will be very likely to try the
j experiment—very likely indeed.
"Record meetings as a rule are not very
I expensive. There have not been very
J many of them on the coast, but those that
have been tried, have, as far as I have
been able tb learn, been very successful.
I I think that Napa was the last place that
tried the record meeting experiment, and
they gave the poeple a fine show and
made money too. We don't care to make
j money out of it. If wo can play evon we
j will be satisfied. Onr club will gain
through tho advertising it will receive,
I and through tho confidence that the peo-
I pie will have in tho organization—by
! virtue of the good, square racing that it
| will afford. We will have a meeting of
| the directors shortly, and this subject
j will bo discussed fullV."
