MERRICK'S SPOOL COTTON. -
The Scandinavian Evangelical Lu'her
an Augustana Bjnod of America, con
trolling Augustana college, is in session
at Lindsborg, Kansas. The old officers
succeed themselves, and the Minnesota
conference retains the presidency, Illi.
nois the vice-presidency, and the Paci6c
conference the secretaryship. Rev. J.
Jesperson of this city has been re-elected
on the board of directors of Augustana
college for four years, and O'.of Hult of
Moline secceeds Nelson Chester of Chi
cago in the same body. The report from
the college shows the financial aspect as
much brighter, and the synod is in good
humor on this point. This practically
places on a permanent basis the conserv
atory and business departments, which
have been in an experimental stage.
Sunday, June 5, twenty-five young men
were ordained to Ihe ministry, including
all who completed their work in the the
ological department this year.
Much interest centers in the present
discussion ot a constitution for Aug
ustana college. This institution locg
since outgrew its swaddling clothes, and
several fragmentary constitutions have
had their day . The principal deficiency
has been a lack of a definite statement
as to the relation between the various
departments and between them anu the
president. Heads or departments were
created and this caused unnecessary fric
lion. Dr Olsson is very 1 list I y anxious
for a change from this state of afiairs
and is now deliberating on a constitution
which does away with petty authorities,
and makes its great educational instiiu
tion one grand whole in fact as well as
in name, by concentrating the executive
power in the president. This will greatly
benefit Augustanacolkgc, as any division
of the institution leaves the removal of
a portion to some other city a compara
tively easy matter.
The June number of the Rambler, pub
lished by Prof. P. G- Siobloon, Augus
tana college, is just received. lllustra
ions, stories, tree shorthand lessons, p-jz-
zles, instructions for computing interest
rapidly, besides various other articles
make up an interesti. g little journal for
the yaung people. The list of 287 words
built from "Education" is both interest
in" and curious nock Island carries

The annual commencemsnt of the Rey
nold's Public High school was held at the
Opera hall Fiiday evening last. The
spacious hall was bandsrmely decorated
and filled to overflowing, notwitnstanutn
the inclement weather. Ihe exercises
oDened with music by Reynolds G'.ee
club, followed by prayerbv Rev. J. A
Riason. The first on the programme
was an essay by Miss Anna Stuurt Fash
ionable Follies. It was well written, de
picting clearly the many harmful and
cruel effects of the innumerible lolHea.
The only criticism to offer was weakness
of voice. The next an essay Napoleon
Bonaparte by Miss Lizzie Millett was
very ably rendered. The next "Life of
Farmer" by Miss Hatlie 8mith was
among the ablest and most interesting.
The subject was handled and worded in
a masterly manner. Her knowledge of
the subject was complete. The word
painting was good, perhaps a little too
bright. Next the Reynolds Glee club
tang. Teaddeons J. Ash gave an oration,
subject, "Choosing a Profession." In
beginning he showed some embarrassment
and stiffness, bat soon warmed up and
made a grand finish. His orations was well
constructed, was pregnant with gems of
thought, and if followed by parent
and child it would prove in
valuable to both, and save them
much embarassment, expense and worry.
This was followed by an essay : Mad
ame Goldscbmidt, or Jenny Lind " by
Miss Pearl Wait. The subject was ad
mirably handled, showing (much thought
and precision in wording. It was a treat
to all. Next the ' ' Life of & Sailor ' was
vividly portrayed by Miss Cora Erkstrom.
Her voice wa not all it mightbave been,

ot class '93, discussed the "Public

all : it was an able production for

wishes for success Next was an
essay " Florence Nightingale " by
Miss Hessie Morrison. For want ot time
and space, let us say, it was grand and
received vociferous applause. Miss
Susie Walker followed with an essay on
"Superstitious Signs." They were in
vestigated and ably commented on from
