MISS ALICE HATES THE GRADUATE
Pleasing Program Followed by
Planting of a Tree on
The wind-swept hill of Villa . de
Chantal was again the scene of a fes
tive gathering this morning. Distant
relatives and friends of the pupils be
gan to arrive yesterday, and a large
number came in on the early morning
trains to attend the 40th annual com
mencement of the academy.
It was a scene of beauty and grace
that greeted the large audience at
!:.'( this morning. Misses Hayes,
Byrne, Shuey an I Miller opened the
program with a piano cpiartet, "Rock
aze March," one of Liszt's inspired
creations. It was all too short, as ev
idenced by the. applause of the audi
ence. The chorus, "Sing On," by Den
ga, followed, keeping up the same tri
umphant and joyous strain. The rich,
young voices calling cut to sing of
joy and light ami of 'Move that never
dies" presented a tribute to the pow
er and beauty of song.
The salutatory, recited by Mis
Mary Archdeacon. followed. The
work of Miss Archdeacon lias always
a pleasing cITect on an audience. She
left everybody well pleased. A piano
solo, "Friihlingsrauehen," by Li tid
ing, in a more pensive, wistful strain,
though again and again reverting to
the jubilant tones" which seemed to
have been the key to the whole enter
tainment, was exquisitely rendered
by Miss Eleanor Byrne. The reading
from r.urns. by Miss Martha de V.
I'iatt, "Fo'r the Sake o Somebody,"
and "(). for Ane an Twenty, Tain,"
captivated everyone. A vocal duet,
"Silent as. Night," by IJoetz. gave a
fine opportunity for the blending of
the dulcet tones of Miss Ilattie Iir
kin and the rich contralto of Miss El
eanor ltyrne. , Next came "YValser,"
by Wilm. The applause which the
young ladies. Misses Mary Shuey and
Marian Miller, received was deserted.
MIhs Larkln ltecltes.
To comment on the work of Miss
Anna Irene Larkin, who recited "The
Lost Word," is almost unnecessary.
She has the same artist's jxiwcr of
making her audience see and feel
with her. In a vocal trio, a Barcar
tdle by ("anipana, the voices of Misses
Marian Miller. (lenetieve Downing and
Eleanor ltyrne sustained a perfect
harmony. The valedictory, by Miss
Alice Eleanor Hayes, concluded the
exercises. Miss Hayes is the sole
member of the graduating class of
IW.l. Uet essay, which preceded the
valedictory, was thoughtful ami high
ly poetic in style, but refreshingly
lacking in that extravagance and dif
fuscness which is characteristic of
the writings of so many young per
sons. She referred totichingly to her
teachers, calling them "the vestals of
the modern age who keep alive on the
altars c;f youthful minds and hearts
the sac-red lamps of knowledge and
virtue." Her delivery was charming.
.An address upon "Education of the
Mind and Heart," by Rev. .Tames Ren-
ihan. of Keokuk, closed the program.
After the exercises a "graduate's
tree' was planted with appropriate
ceremonies on the Villa grounds by
Maintain High Standard.
The work of the music department
of Villa de Chantal compares favor
ably with that done by the students
f the first conservatories of the
country. In more ways than one no
school in the west has a more prom
ising outlook for t:" future than the
Villa de ( hantal. Already applica
tions for the enrollment of new pu
pils for next year are being received.
What has been said so often of the
success of the Catholic sisterhood in
cultivating the virtues which are a
woman's glory applies in a special
way to the Visitation nuns. And on
this foundation of womanly virtue
the sisters build, litting their pupils
not only to grace and charm society,
but to be physically, mentally and
morally strong an 1 beautiful in what
ever sphere their lots may be cast.
Wide-awake to the needs of the time,
and the demands of this 20th century,
with a spirit of cour-ige and eagerness
to follow in the way of progress, the
Visitation sisters hate every reason
to belicte that Villa de Chantal will
be one of the great schools of the
Id b Bad Way.
A prominent ofheial had In-en a user
of coffee and was one of the foolish
coffee drinkers who insisted that cof
fee was not injuring him. Finally lie
had heartburn, then coffee soured on
his stomach; the next stepwas indi
gestion, and finally rar.k constipa
tion. Then he came to his senses and
gave up coffee and began using Mocon
Cereal coffee. Now he has neither
sour stomach nor constipation. He
is a well man and attributes his
health to the use of Mocon, the great

base of sanitary soda drinks and is

TO FACE CONSPIRACY CHARGE
Daniel Drost. who several years
ago was indicted jointly with Mat
thias Schncll for alleged conspiracy,
appeared in court yesterday after
noon and gave bail in tin' sum of $1,
."() to insure his appearttfTt'e for trial.
He has been absent since prev ious to
the time the indict incut was returned.
The alleged conspiracy with which
he is charged was in connect ion with
his marriage with Mrs. Anna McDer
inott Drost, which it is claimed was
brought about for the purpose of de
feating her suit for $!IKi.i)(M for
hreach-of promise against Mr. SchnclI.
The case of the state vs. Hiram Bry
ant was taken up this morning after
the jury in the Saley case had been
instructed and retired for delibera

Caskrin are defending.
SEASON FOR LOGGERS
The rains and high water arc mak
ing the work of the logger easier,
and insuring the saw mills that are
still in commission plenty of material
for sawing this summer. A LaCrosse
writer sizes up the situation as fol
lows: "This has thus far been a -remarkable
season for the lumbermen, who
arc very much pleased with the pros
pects. It is surprising to note the
number of logs .that are being
brought down the Mississippi river,
after the continued reports that the
logs in the northern woods arc nearly
exhausted and that the industry
would soon come to an end in the Mis
sissippi valley. Nearly every drive so
far has been a success, and Ihe down
river mills will get about 75 per cent
of the logs this year.
It is expected the main Chippewa
drive will be made about the last of
next month, if not sooner. With that
out the season's work on that river
will be completed. A large number
of men are at work at West Newton,
and a large amount of work has al
ready been done. On account of the
fine stage of water it looks as
though the West Newton boom will
be operated all summer.
The funeral of the late Peter Wid
del will take place at. i o'clock Fri
day afternoon at the home, GO:?
The funeral of Mrs. llonora Me
Inery will be held at 9 o'clock tomor
row morning from the home of Wilj
Hani Murrin, 716 Third street, to Sa
cred Heart church, with interment at
M. W. of A. and It. N. or A. Attention.
All members of M. W. of A. and R.
N. of A. camps are requested to be at
their hall Sunday morning at 9
o'clock, to participate in memorial
services. Visiting neighbors invited.

WILL BE CASE OF JONES VS. HESS
Police Called Upon and Law in Case
Explained Last liven
ing. One of the swarms of bees which
was hived on Second avenue yesterday
came near leaving a legal suit in their
trail, and as the matter stands, legal
advice has been sought. Jacob Hess
hived both swarms and took posses
sion of them, nut the one which enter
ed a box on an oil stove in front of
Jones. second hand store led to com
plications. Bert Jones claimed this
swarm and last evening retained At
torney G. W. McCaskrin to look after
It is unlikely that any suit will re
sult as both parties are disposed to
an amicable settlement. The matter,
however, brings up an .interesting le
gal question. When bees swarm they
are regarded in the same light by the
law as' wild animals, and as soon as
they are out of sight of the original
owner the first man that hives them
is their. owner. They are then his as
long as lu.' can follow them with his
eye. The question then arises as. to
whether they- were hived by Mr.
Jones when they alighted in front of
his premises, or whether they were
merely a part of the swarm which
had hived in the box set on the lamp
post by Mr. Hess.
Police Called I'pon.
There was considerable excitement
connected with the removal of the
bees. When Mr. Hess went after them
he met with opposition from Mr.
.Jones, who eventually summoned the
police to give weight to his claim.
Magistrate Johnson was also brought
upon the scene and things assumed
for a time an ominous aspect. The
magistrate delivered himself of the
law in the case and Mr. Hess finally
caned the bees away. Having thus
temporarily waived his rights Mr.
Jones will now be put to the incon
venience' of going after the property
should he apply for and get a favor
The hiving of the swarm that took
refuge i n top of the lamp post last
evening furnished entertainment for
a large crowd. It was not attempted
till after sundown, when the insects
were more easily handled, and with
the assistance of a liberal supply of
smoke they were dumped into the box
and taken aw a v.
LAW WAS RECENTLY PASSED
It may not be generally known
that the legislature at its last session
passed a compulsory education law
prescribing nominal jeralties for
failure to send capable children be
tween the ages of 7 and It years to
school, but such is the fact. A pen-
ilt.v for falsely stating the age of a
child or the length of the school at
tendance for the purpose of evading
the terms of the law or the paving of
its penalties is also provided for. The
new law is as follows:
Section 1. B it. enacted by the
people of the state of Illinois repre
sented ill the general assembly: 't hat
sections one (1), two (:.') and four (I)
of an act entitled "An act to promote
attendance of children in schools and
to prevent truancy." approved June
11, 1S'.7, in force July 1, 1S'.I7. be, and
the same arc hereby aniendicd as fol
lows: Section 1. Every person having con
trol of any child between the ages of
seven (7) and fourteen (14) years
shall annually cause such child to al
teiul some public or private school
for the entire time during which the
school attended is in session, which
period shall not be lesskthaii 110 days
of actual teaching. Provided, that
this act. shall not apply in any case
otherwise instructed, for a like peri
od of time in each and every year in
the elementary branches of educa
tion by a person or persons compe
tent to give such instructions; or
whose physical or mental condition
renders his or her attendance imprac
tical or inexpedient.
Sec. 'J. For every neglect of such
duty prescribed by section 1 of this
act. the person so otTending. shall for
feit to the use of the public schools
of city, town or district in which
such child resides a sum not less than
live dollars ($.") nor more than twenty
dollars ($20) and costs of suit, and
shall stand committed until such fine
and costs are fully paid. .
Sec. 1. Any person having control
of a child who, with intent to evade
the provisions of this act, shall make
a false statement, concerning the age
of such child, or the time such child
has attended school, shall for such
offense forfeit the sum of not less
than three dollars ($'!) nor more than
twenty dollars ($20) for the use of
the public schools of such, city, town,
