The closing exercises in the examina
tion of the Cairo High school took place
yesterday, in the preseuce of one ot the
largest audiences we have ever known to
aserable on any similar occasion in this
city. In fact at no time within the last
ten years have we known so much and
such deep interest to be taken
in the affairs of our public
schools, and particularly in the High
school department, as has been mani
fested during the examinations just
closed. Citizens generally seem to have
taken a uew and increased interest in the
welfare and success of the public schools,
and a new determination that they shal 1
take no step backward.
The exercises during the forenoon
consisted ol recitations by the classes in
Algebra, Geometry .and Rhetoric, fol
lowed by exercises in Telegraphy and
Phonography. Thse recitations were ot
a highly interesting and entertaining
character, and were listened to by the
large audience with the closest attention.
During the exercises in
IKLKGRArUY AND PHONOGRAPHY
A number of strangers were present,
among them Col. Jones ot Jollet, and a
clergyman, whose uauie has slipped our
memory, and others. Miss Daisy Halli
day, Miss Minnie Powers and two or
three others, sent aud received message
with a correctness and rapidity that not
only surprised but astonished tho audi
ence, aud especially the visitor from
abroad. A clergyman present was asked
to make a few remarks to the school, aud
at the conclusion ot his address was no
little surprised (o learn that perhaps half
a dozen scholars bad taken down his
speecti la "short hand," . This concluded
the exercises of the forenoon.
IX TUB AfTCBNOOX
Tut attendance of visitors was much
larger than duri0 the morning, and
nearly all the pupils were compelled to
givs up their scats to the crowd seeking
admission to the room.
The exercises consisted of the exami
nation of the classes in Ancient History
and Astronomy, followed by essays and
The class in Ancient His
toiy was examined by Mrs. Alvord. and
was one of the most Interesting exorcises
of the day. Perhaps we can pay
no higher compliment to tho class, than
to state that Mr. G. P. Jones, a thor
otighly educated gentleman, and a man.
who takes great interest in educa
tional matters, remarked to a prominent
citizen that in all his experience at ex
aminations and at commencement exer
cises at many colleges he had never be
fore seen a class who so thoroughly un
derstood the subject.
The papers lead by the members of
the class in Astronomy were well writ
ten, and gave evidence of hard study and
much thought on the part of the young
ladies and gentlemen oi the class.
The members who read were Katie
Alvord, Magg'e Loflln, Laura Hen
dricks, Etta McEwin, Mollie Cavender,
Cora Stratton, ElUe Close and Thomas
THE R .CITATIONS.
were as follows :
"Sailor Boy's Dream" Frankie Rex
"Napoleon's Farewell," Arthur
"Bridge of Sighs," Cora Stratton ;
Essay "Woman's Rights," Mollie
Reply to "Woman's Rights," Annie
"Maude Muller," Katie Alvord :
"Pyramus aud Thlsbe," Daisy Halli
Gambler's Wife,"' Hattie McKee.
The recitations were all excelleutand
received the hearty applause of the au
dience. At the conclusion ot the "Gam
bler's Wife," by Miss Hattie McKee, the
examination was announced at an end.
The circumstances under which we
write render it Impossible to give a full
report of the examination of the High
school, and we have only referred to the
more prominent features of it.
In conclusion it is buttdoing justice
to Trotcssor Alvord, Mrs. Alvord and
Altai Pattison to say that to their untir
ing efforts is due the praise ot making the
Cairo High school what it is the model
school of Southern Illinois. They have
labored constantly and faithfully, and to
them the people of Cairo owe a lasting
debt of gratitude.
