EXERCISES HELD AT THE GRAND
OPERA HOUSE FRIDAY.
Literary and Musical Program Carried
Tlirougli While Large Audience
Applauded Orations o Graduates
Xot for many years, if ever in the
history of Sherman county, has the
yearly graduation exercises of the
high school been held with such
splendid success as attended the clas
of 1907 at the Grand opera house
Friday evening. The event had been
looked forward to with interest by
many people of the city and county,
and when the evening came, the opera
house was considerably filled, and the
galleries, too, contained a consider
able sprinkling of spectators to the
The hall was brilliant" with electric
lights, the stage was decorated with
potted plants. Depending from above
the rostrum was the motto of the
class in gold letters on blue back
ground, "Unless God be with us, our
labor is in vain." The railing around
the balcony was tastefully wrapped
with blue and gold ribbon, and the
colors of the class were everywhere
The harmony of the scene was en
gaging, and when the Goodland Cor
net Band mingled the notes of
"Martha" and "The Soldiers' Chorus"
with the sentiment of so laudible oc
casion, it was an inspiration and cal
culated to elevate the cause of edu
cation among the boys and girl3 of
The invocation was delivered by
Rev. J. Ed Stevens, while Rev. R. A.
Staley pronounced the words of bene
diction. The orations of the seven
graduates were interspersed with
pleasing musical numbers by the
Goodland Male quartette, vocal solo
by Prof. Mitchell, and piano duette
by Misses. Clyde Cotton and Clara
The salutatory and oration was giv
en by Irl Goodrich. He welcomed the
large assemblage in a fitting manner,
saying, "We welcome you here to
night to show you in our modest way
what progress we have made in our
studies, so far as can be expressed by
orations upon subjects of interest. He
later launched out into his oration
entitled, "The Treason of Benedict
Arnold." He recited the glorious
record of America's famous hero and
general, and contrasted his mighty
height with his mighty fall into shame
and regret. He declared the crime
was colossal because of the personal
grandeur and eminence of the offend
er. The speaker assignd the cause of
treason to a lack of moral rectitude
and" goodness in youth, when young
Arnold displayed a cruel, and unfeel
ing nature. His ignominious reward
seemed to be the inevitable conse
quence of a life that is not consecrat
ed to unwavering, holy purposes.
Miss Clara Thorsen followed Mr.
Goodrich with an oration, "Open
Sesame." The question asked was,
"For what is man seeking TJ For
wealth, for knowledge, for pleasure,
for wisdom? These human attrac
tions in life were elaborated with wis
dom appearing as the grandest of all
of man's achievements. Before she
reached the climax she quoted, "The
fear God is the beginning of wis
dom." It was a nice elevation In
ascending to the mountain of wis
dom, which was said to be the ''Open
Sesame." Knowing our own powers
and utilizing them for good consti
tutes the goal.
"Vale of an Aim in Life" was the
subject of Grace Duell's oration. She
clearly shewed that without a defi
nite purpose, effort is in vain; that
every person must build his own for
tune, and by accurate and systematic
work endeavor to reach the top.
In an oration, "Our Age," Polly
Piper expressed fine thoughts about
the character of our times. She said
our age was scientific, practical, ar
tistic, etc., and developed the rea
sons why. "America," she said, "can
boast widely of her men who hava
contributed so much of their intelli
gence in making our nation what it
It was left for, Clyde Cotton to play
upon the heart strings of her audi
ence with "The Mission of Music" for
her subject. It was a beautiful col
lection of thoughts, she uttered, and
her use of sentence quotations from
men and literature exhibited consid
rable research. She showed the uses
of music to be many, and that th.9
rich and the poor were alike bensions
of its charms. Childhood, manhood,
and age, are soothed and healed by
music. In her conclusion she said:
"The brtde goes to her wedding, th
workman to his shop, the kind old

while they las

his own appropriate nroric."
Clair Cotton, by hts nitural enthu
siasm and the patriotic feeling that
his oration awakened in the hearts of
his hearers, carried o3 loud cheers
after he had finished his oration. "A
Typical American," ending with
these rythmic sentences: "Where did
Shakespeare get hi3 genius? Where
did Mozart gethis music? Whose hand
smote the lyre of the Scottish plow
man, and stayed the hand of the
German priest? God, and God alone,
and as surely as these wera raised up
by God, inspired of God was Abra
ham Lincoln, and a thousand years
hence, no story, no tragedy, no epic
poem, will be told with greater in
terest than that which tells of hi3
life and death." He said that all the
world has its ideals. Its Idols and its
heroes, and that the greatest In
American history was the man, the
martyr, the hero, Lincoln.
The finishing touches In oratory
were applied by Grace Golng3, vale
dictorian. Her thoughts bridged over
the past and present, lingered as it
were between the parting embrace of
childhood and manhood, youth and
age. Time rides on eagles wings, and
to drive the sentiment home,- she re
peated the following beautiful lines:
"Golden Years the passing by;
Happy, happy, golden years;
Oh, implore them as they fly.
These happy golden years."
Her oration was punctuated with
gratitude for the instructors, and all
persons whose work and influence
had helped the class to the present
All of the graduates handled them
selves admirably in delivering their
speeches, and won for themselves the
generous plaudits of the audience.
The presentation of diplomas was
made by II- W. Stewart, secretary of
the board of education. Hi3 remarks
were confined to drawing a clear dis
tinction between education and schol
arship, and showing . that the latter
should be the ultimate end or tne
former, but frequently Is not because

The most startling announcement In .

being used to buy stocks and control

of the deals of Harriman and other

that the legislatures of the statc3 in

to compel railroad corporations to
charge reasonable rates instead of ex
tracting vast sums from the public to
buy the stocks of eastern railroad.
The fact that the attorney general cf
the United States needs prodding to
protect the public interests shows that
the chief reliance of the plundered
people must be through their own di

I wish to Inform the general public
that I have Just shipped In the finest
three-year-old Jack that was ever
brought Into this part of the country,
and also a good Shire stallion that
weighs 1.600 rounds. I live In this
county, and will continue to do so. and
am always ready to stand back cf ev
ery animal I sell. I am not connect
ed In any way with the Jack and stal
lion trust. I buy my stuff direct from
the breeder, and what proSt I can
make In handling these animals, goes
back to the people of the county, be
cause I spend my money here. You
will always have good cause to buy
of me for the reason3 stated above. I
am interested In the building up of
the pure-bred stock industry in this
county, because it costs no more to
keep a good animal than It does a
poor one. My Jack, which I am now
showing to the farmers, is ahead of
anything I have ever had anything to
do with in thi3 line. Horsemen who
have seen him say that he heads th
list In their experience. And I know
that all persons Interested In Jacks
will be admirably surprised at what I
have to show them. My stallion 13 a
fine animal also, and one worth more
money than I am asking for him. He
belongs to a hardy stock and Is a class
of horse whose breeding ought to be
encouraged in Sherman county.

TAKE YOUR HOME PAPER FIRST
THEN SUBSCRIBE FOR
The Kansas City Star and Timo
The Star and Times, reporting the full twenty
four hours' news each day in thirteen issues cf the
paper each week, are furnished to regular subscribers
at the rate of 10 cents per week.
As newspapers, The Star and the Times have
no rivals. No other publisher furnishes his readers
with the full day and night Associated Press reports,
as does the Star and Times. This should recom
mend the papers especially to the progressive mer
chant and farmer.
I deliver both the Star and Times to the sub
scriber's door promptly on arrival of trains.
Give me a trial.
