REWARD OF MERIT.
Ninth Grade Pupils Who Are to be
The Annual commencement Exer-
. elses of the Roek IalanA Grammar
School Thlo Afternoon-The jirad
natea.Addreanea by Rev. Inland
and t resident Kelmers.
Harper's theatre was crowded this af
ternoon with patrons and friends of the
Rock Inland public schools, this particu
lar occasion being the annual commence
ment eiercises of the Ninth grades. The
stage w is gorgeously decorated with bou
quets and other floral emblems, these
tokens of appreciation and regard from
relative: and friends of the graduates
forming a bank entirely around the
foot-light space, there being a great
wealth of flowers besides. President
Reimen and Directors Thomas, Barth
and Kn owlton-, of the board of education
and Sur t. Kemble occupied the box to
the rig it of the stage, 'while Pricipals
Perry t.nd Kirkpatrick and Miss Piatt
and Mrs. Liston had the box on the op
posite s de. President Reimers presided.
opened with a march executed by Miss
Maud 3. Campbell, during which the
graduates entered from either side of the
stage and took seats. Prayer was offered
by Rev. A. B. Meldrum and then cme
a chorus song, '"Our School Days
Are Gliding By." Frank Payne delivered
a decla nation entitled "The World We
Live In." and MUs Sarah Arthur recited
"One Standard for Both," after which
Harry Y. Cook declaimed "The Men to
Make a State." "Climb to the Top" was
rendere l in chorus; Nellie Wilson re
cited "having Mother," and Fred Ecker-
mann At claimed "The Paper Doesn't Say.
Then followed the reciting of "Colum
bia" by Alice T. Hemenway, and the sons;
by the horus, "Good Bye."
The riain address to the graduates was
made by Rev. H. C. Leland, of the First
Baptist church, the subject of whose
well directed remarks was the
ELEMENTS OF IDEAL MANHOOD.
Mr. leland said:
Members of the Niuth Graile, Parents sad
I esteem it a compliment that I am
permitted the privilege of speaking to
you up n this occasion. Two classes are
before tie, to each of whom I am ex
pected to have reference in my remarks
the ninth grade flushed with success in
attaining a much desired stage of pro
gress in education, and animated with
the bore of future achievements; and
parents, who are justly gratified with the
commei dable progress and abilities de
veloped in learning by those whose every
interest is dear to them, and whose ad
yice and help is not only potent, but
necessai y to the proper use of the pres
ent advantages and successful prosecu
tion of plans for the future.
Two questions are suggested as
specially worthy of consideration:
1. Bow shall we attain to the complete
symmetrical manhood or womanhood,
and raott successfully achieve a com
mendab e life task? And
2. How shall parents render most
efficient stimulus and aid to the youth
I in reaching this most desirable end T
uur answer, in brier, to these quest
tions is'iy entertaining and acting upon
proper views of life, its privileges, obli
gations and possibilities. "The lifo is
more th in meat and the body more than
raiment." To live is more than to get
money t.nd enjoy its possession and use.
We baV'9 an intellectual and moral as
well as physical nature.
Three elements, corresponding with
the trin ty of our nature must enter into
tbe ideal manhood, viz : A good
CHARACTER, A VICJORODS CONSTITUTION
and an adapted culture. Our unrivalled
public hchool system Beems to tnve tbe
American youth guarantee of greater
help toward these than can be found in
auy uiuer part 01 me won a, out as a
system it cannot produce tbe desired re
sult, wi .bout a cordial and enthusiastic
sympathy and co-operation on the part
of parents, and a recognition and intelli
gent action on tbe part of teachers, pu
pils and parents of the necessary ele
ments of tbe ideal manhood. ,
A gocd character, a right moral basis,
is as necessary to the ideal manhood as
the foundation to a house. Without
character we may have a Bloody Mary
Robespierre or a J. Wilkes Booth. Life
is a continual conflict, but the grandest
battles and victories are not fought and
won where cannon roar, and sabres flash
and clash, but on tbe silent battle fields
of the heart, which is truly a battle field
possessng immesurably more interest
than Marathon, Waterloo, Austerlitz or
Gettysburg. Herbert Spencer has said
that "conduct is three-fourths of life."
The edication of the moral feelings
should 0 hand in hand with every study.
The pur. il should learn to restrain pas
sion, be just, generous, humane, punc
tual anl industrious. He alone can
hope to attain successfully toward an
ideal manhood and perform well the life
task, whose continual sentiment illus
trated by action is:
1 live rot those who love me.
For those who know me true ;
For tl e heaven that bend above me.
And the good that I can do.
For the cause that needs assistance.
For the wrongs that lack resistance ;
For the future in the distance.
And the good that 1 can do.
Secon 1 onlv to integrity of character
in the fundamental elements of the ideal
manhood is a vigorous constitution, an
abounding vitality, a good physique.
Without it intellectual and moral train
ing are t ot most perfectly available in
the struggle of life. The constitution of
the American youth should be like that
of the national constitution. It should
contain ill the best elements in the cons
stitutioni of other lands, for through the
veins of the American youth flow co
mingled the best blood of the nations of
tbe eartl.. But physical degeneracy is
consequent upon excess of mental appli
cation, 1 gnorance of the laws of health,
tbe temperaments and dispositions and
the laws of growth. The limit of vital
energy, the order and rate in which the
faculties develop, the ordinary laws of
bygeine ind the temperaments and dispo
sitions nhould be carefully observed,
otherwiss abnormal results will surely
follow and tbe culture and the admirable
character go together into an untimely
grave, 01 drag out a miserable existence.
It has been well said that "if the ideal
man and woman is to be reached it must
be by firing attention practically to
health, making moral attainment not
theoretic ally but practically the highest,
and reaching the intellect through these."
But not ling will supply the place of
knowledge. Character without culture
furnished the pioua boor constitution
without culture or character gives us the
barbarian, or the pugilist, while consti
tution ai d character without culture are
in man cases impotent and always fet
tered in action. I
Reference was made here to tbe false
idea of culture . which produces the
"dude" and the "girl of the period," who,
having nothing better than the superficial
graces so assiduously taught at the so
called finishing schools, !s not able long to
retain tbe affection she has the adroitness
to inspire, and so figures in the divorce
court and helps to fill the land with ach
ing hearts and broken homes.
Tbe remainder of the address was lim
ited to a discussion of the importance of
continuing the studies into tbe high
school grades, and farther if possible.
Parents were urged to sacrifice if neces
sary, to help their children in this by
motives of patriotism, the advantages to
be gained by having a good education,
from the standpoint of gain in wealth,
social position and power and from the
nature of education which plainly indi
cates that it is veritable folly and a mark
of base ignora'nee to say, when a pupil
has passed tbe ninth grade, "He has
enough of schooling now." or "I can't
afford to send him to school any longer,"
or "He has an average education." The
address closed with an appeal to the pus
pile to continue in schc ol, harbor high
ideals of character, constitution and cul
ture, aspire to the noblest lire tank and
spare no labor or cost in striving to at
tain the ideal manhood and womanhood.
Tbe graduates were then
PRESENTED WITH THEIR CERTIFICATES
by President J. J. Reimers of the board
of education," who in tbe discharge of his
important duty addressed the graduates
Boya and Girls :
You have completed the course of
study prescribed for the Ninth grade of
the Kock Island public Achools, and, in
behalf of the board of education, it now
becomes my duty and pleasure to present
to you your certificates of graduation
from that grade. Betbre doing so I
would say to you, however, that you are
yet but boys and girls in tbe purest and
be9t meaning of tbe words, and that you
have, with credit to yourselves and
teachers, finished the course of study
laid down for you. There is yet before
you, if you choose to take advantage of
them, greater facilities for an advanced
and liberal education in our public high
school, and it is the sincere wish of tbe
board of education that every one
of you will enter that school
and complete the education you have
started and thus far acquired in the pub
lie school, that your education may be
finished so far as it is in the power of
these schools to accomplish. But I
would say, however, that if it becomes
necessary for some of you that may be
compelled to leave tbe schools and work,
you can be assured that what you have
already accomplished will well fit you to
battle with the life before you, and that if
you but follow the principles you have
learned, and faithfully use the knowl
edge so far acquired, you will find that
there has been already laid for you a
foundation broad and deep, upon which
you may hereafter build, if you will, tbe
noblest structure of manhood and woman
hood. Take therefore these certificates
as the testimonials of this board of the
work you have thus far well and nobly

State's Attorney O'Mara Passes
nia Dene at Merry Hospital. Dav
enport, at S:SS this Afternoon
History of His Life.
Patrick O'Mara. state's attorney of
Rock Island county, died at the Mercy
hospital, Davenport, at five minutes to
four this af ternoon.of inflammation of the
stomach, with which he had been an in
tense sufferer for many months. He had
been afflicted with indigestion and kin
dred stomach ailments for a few years,
but within the past year the
malady had taken a serious
turn. Last Thursday he was taken to
Mercy hospital at Davenport, and since
Sunday he has been in a dying condition.
His stomach refused to retain nourish
men t, and be starved to death.
Patrick O'Mara was born in County
Mayo, Ireland, August 2. 1847, and when
yet a child came to America with his
mother, Katberine O'Mara, his father,
after whom he was named, dying on the
voyage and was buried in tbe sea. There
were eight children in the family, four
of whom are dead, the surviving children
being John O'Mara, in the Illinois' Sol
diers' home at Quincy; Mrs. James Bal
lard, of Toledo, Iowa; Mrs. Wm. Baker
and Mrs. Michael Kelly, of Edgington.
The aged mother of the deceased still re
sides in Edgington township, where she
located after spending a few years in
Pennsylvania. Patrick was then seven
seyen years old, and the early years of
his life marked the struggles of a poor
boy without advantages or aid other than
he made for himself. But he was indus
trious and honest and worked on the
neighboring farms in Andalusia, Buffalo
Prairie and Edgington townships, being
employed for a long time by Hon. W. F.
When the war broke out Patrick was
seized with the spirit of patriotism and
was one of the first to express a desire to
go to the front. But he was young and
his mother forbid bis doing so. Finally,
however, on his fifteenth birthday, he
and two of his brothers ran away from
home to join the army and on August
12, 1862, Patrick enlisted in company I
of the 126th regiment then commanded
by Capt. Morris, and went to the front
for his adopted country. He was, as has
been said, but a mere boy, but his in
tense patriotism and his never failing
bravery won for him the admiration of
his fellow soldiers and many of the
friends thus made were among his
staunchest to his dying hour. One
brother fell upon tbe field, but the other,
John, and Pat were mustered out July 12,
Tbe close of tbe war found O'Msra a
hearty, rugged, ignorant Irish boy, but as
willing and determined to make something
of himself and anxious to iprove every
opportunity to do so that he could com
mand. Through the intercession of Maj .
J. M. Beardsley he got into the soldiers'
school at Fulton, where he received the
fundamental principles of an education.
He bad saved up his army earnings and
then went to college at Galesburg for a
short term, acquiring enough of an edu
cation to teach school for a while.
He thought some of making school
teaching his profession, but finally turned
his attention to the law. He had man
aged to scrape enough together to take
a course of study in Iowa City Univer
sity. Having done this he returned to
Rock Island, and read in the office
of P. T. McElherne and being admitted.
became that gentleman's partner, the firm
name being McElherne & O'Mara, and it
continued until the senior member's re
moval to Chicago, when Mr. O'Mara
continued the practice alone. Being pe
culiarly gifted in oratorical ability and
having a happy faculty of making tbe
most of things, he became at once a suc
cessful practitioner and was soon regard
ed as one of tbe highest members of the
Rock Island county bar.
In 1876 tbe democratic party nominated
him for the office of state's attorney, but
he was defeated by E. E. Parmenter. In
the fall of 1880 he was elected as minor
ity representative in the legislature from
the Twenty-first district and was re
elected in 1882. Here he gained consid-
erable distinction throughout the state
through the ability he displayed and force
of eloquence and argument displayed in
In 1884 he was made the nominee of
tbe democratic party for the office of
Btate's attorney, but declined and the
same summer he changed his politics
and supported Blaine during the remain
der of the campaign. In the spring of
1887 the republican city convention
nominated him for city attorney, but in
the election ensuing he was defeated bv
Wm. McEniry. A year ago he was
nominated for state's attorney on tbe re
publican ticket, and waa elected over
Wm. McEniry, democrat. In this elec
tion be attained the crowning ambition
of his life, his often expressed desire
from the time he was admitted to the bar,
being to be state's attorney of Rock
He had only fairly entered upon the
discharge of the duties of the office when
he broke down, but with a will power
that waa most remarkable, he atuck to
his duties and would not give up even
when he was so weak and emaciated that
he could scarcely bold his head up. He
would not yield; and contrary to the ad-j
vice of physicians and personal friends
he plodded on and finally when his phys- j
ical strength entirely deserted him he j
gave up in despair and went over to
Mercy hospital to die. Though Mr,
O'Mara was not a man of family, his
friends ministered to him tenderly and
were happy in doing for him, until at his
own request he was conveyed to the hos
pital. Two days ago he realized the ap
proach of dissolution and made every
provision for tbe disposition of what ef
fects he possessed.
He was one of the most zealous and
faithful advocates of the Irish cause and
on many an occasion did bis burning
words carry conviction to the heart of
those who were not thoroughly convinced
as to the righteousness of the cause he
advocated. As an attorney he had par
ticipated in several prominent cases,
among others that of the murderer, Heil
wagon, whom he defended.
Mr. O'Mara was possessed of great
worth as a man. He was above all things
honest, and with that as his cardinal
principle, he showed how with nothing
but self-exertion he made a man out of
himself. Having by nature a refined and
gentle disposition, his warmest friends
were those who were most intimately ac
quainted with him.
A meeting of the Rock Island county
bar is called at the court house at 9
o'clock tomorrow morning to take action
on Mr. O'Mara's death.
