The ISth animal commencement ex
ercises of the Rock Island High school
were held at Harper's theatre lest eve
ning. The house was thronged with relatives
and friends of the graduates. In the
lower boxes were the board of education,
Superintendent Kemble. Rev C. E. Tay
lor and wife, and Rev.J. H. Kerr on one
6ide, and the High school teachers on the
other. As the curtain rose it revealed
the entire High school seated on a plat
form, while the seats for the graduates
were arranged in a semi-circle. The
class of '91 entered from the wiDgs on
either side to a march by the High school
orchestra. On a mountain scene used
for a back ground appeared the class
motto, Climb." in letters of white.
The exercises opened with an overture
by the High school orchestra. Rev. J.
H. Kerr, of the Central Presbyterian
church, offered prayer, and there was a
chorus by the High school.
Miss Tillie C. Groijan then delivered as
a salutatory, "The Audience." Educa
tion was treated as the watchword of the
day.' The audience present was happily
greeted,' and the composition of the aver
age audience which attends commence
ment was analyzed in a witty and enter
taining manner. In conclusion some
wholesome advice was advanced to the
undergraduates, and some very neat and
complimentary tributes paid the teachers.

Miss Fannie E. Gilbert gave a thou ght
ful essay from the topic " Tis Looking
Downward That Makes the Head Swim.''
She treated of the rocky pathway of life
beset by temptations; the dangers of
looking below even after the prize of a
life endeavor is seized, aod the success
that must come from looking onward and
aloft. She hoped the class of '91 rould
be true to its motto and "climb" by looking
Miss Charlotte Bromley treated the subs
ject, "It Might Have Been,' in a manner
that evinced the possession cf fine elocu
tionary talents, her enunciation beins
clear, distinct and deliberate. She pic
tured how much more brilliant might
have been the lives of such men as Byron, 1
Coleridge, Scott, but for neglected oppor
tunities, and on the other hand the names
of Dr. Samuel Johnson, Tennison, Long
fellow and Whittier were presented as
shining examples of what may be accom
plished by pure and moral lives and the
mprovingof opportunities. "Of all Sad
"Words of Tongue or Pen, These are the
Saddest, 'It Might Have Been. " said the
speaker, and bow different indeed would
be the lives of many men of natural
genius if thoughts arid plans could but
result in action. It was the concluding
wish of the essayist that ail members of
the class of '91 might cultivate the talent
the Creator had entrusted to each.
The chorus gave with pleasing ef
fect, 'The Gaily Ringing Hunter's Horn"
under the direction of Prof. G. R. House!,
when Armin HarmB delivered an oration
on Gen. W.T. Sherman. The speaker, who
is but 14 years of age, gave a biographi
cal sketch of Gen. Sherman, spoke of
his babitB and characteristics and abili
ties and social qualities, etc. It was a
masterly preparation, showing much care
in the array of dates presented, and was

advancement in the Nineteenth century
supporting her position by citing the
names of women eminent in literature art,
and the more modern national enterprise
the world's fair.
Samuel R. Kenworthy delivered i
splendid oration on "America's Example.'
America was spoken of as the great ex
emplar of nations, a government by whose
conduct the world may be regulated. The
subject was handled in a manner patriotic
as well as thoughtful.
A cleverly executed zither duet. "Saltz
brunner Saison," by Miss Clara Woltmann
and Albert K. Fahrner. received a well
merited encore which was neatly responded
to, when Miss Elizabeth Montgomery de
livered a preparation on "Our Boat is
Launched, But Where is the Shore?" The
nf life was new to us all, she
held, no two vessels ever sailed
over exactly the same course, or in
exactlv the same vessel. The safety
of the voyage depended no less upon the
course pursued than upon the construc
tion of the vessel. We must have
staunch crafts and careful sailing, if the
voyage of life is to be made in safety, and
with success as the final harbor.
The High school orchestra played an
other delightful selection, and then came
the valedictory, which bed been assigned
to Miss Bertha E. Stelck. Bricks With
out Straw" formed the subj jct of her ef
fort. Worth and Principal were liken3d
as essantial to the formation of humam
character, as straw was to bricK under
ancient conditions. In words of appre
ciation and gratitude she addressed the
board of education on behalf of the class,
speaking of the competency, faithfulness
and patience of the teachers provided, re,
tumid thanks also to the teachers them
selves, and concluded with affection
ate remarks to the classmates, counseling
them not to lose sight of the motto,
"Climb," to be "guided by principle in the
formation of a character, such as would
not be like unto brick without straw.
The High school rendered a chorus,
when President Barth

Delicate Membranes of the Throat.
"Did you ever know," said a well known
specialist, as he deftly inserted a looking
class into the roof of a sufferer's month.
"that the throat has a brain of its own;
JSo? l suppose lew oi tne laity ao kikv
it, but it s a fact. Tbere is a Email gan
glia which exercises direct control over
the muscles of the throat and acts as its
brain. Of course it is subservient to the
genuine brain, but at the same time does
a good deal of independent thinking for it
self. It is very timid and suspicious of
any strancre objects that come near the
throat. For this reason it is very difficult
for a physician to operate on the throat.
"Before anything can be done in this
direction it is necessary for the operator to
gain the confidence of the little brain that
dominates it. It frequently takes weeks
before this confidence can be secured, and
until it is secured it is impossible to oper
ate. When the little brain is finally made
to understand that no barm is intended it,
but that the physician is actuated by
friendly motives, it will submit to almost
any treatment, however painluL
"But woe be to the man who attempts
rough treatment to the throat before gam
ing tbe little brain's confidence, and in
spite of its protests. His operations will
be resented with violent paroxysms, first
of the throat, then of the diaphragm, and,
if the operator atill persists, the patient
will be thrown into convulsions. Still
more carious is the fact that this little
brain has a memory, and if once fright
ened in this way it is impossible to ever
gain its confidence, no matter how gentle
the operator may be.
"I don't know whether its distrust
would extend to other operators than the
one "who frightened it or not. I think I
will try the experiment some time of see
ing whether it can remember faces."
