Harp r's theatre was filled to its utmost

tbe nin teenth commencement exercises
of the l ock Island High school. The
stas;e a id boxes had been handsomely
decorated with flowers and floral em
b'ems, one very unique one being a ship
bearing the word "launched," a Maltese
cross on which appeared "out not" and
an ancl or inscribed "anchored," making
the mo-to "Launchid but not Anchored."'
The jrariualing class numbering 31,
which ia the largest ever graduated from
that in itilution completely filled the stage
while t ie boxtB were occupied by teach

series ( f steos had been arranged from

assisted in the ehorustS.

offered by Rev. J, II. Kerr, of the Cen

of Piltrims," a beautiful chorus was ren
dered by the graduating classes of the
Elevetth and Twelfth grades, after
which Miss Blanche K Cleland delivered
the Erglish and Lttin salutatory. She

mie 1 To the young men of the class
let me say that if any of you h ive not
planned a college course of study, you
have in my opinion mde a grave error,
no milter what may be your future occu
nation. I beg ot you to reconsider your
determination. If you select a profes
sional career, a college education is ab
solutely essential to the proper mental
development, and the acquiring of a
broad foundation on which to build your
life study, without which training you
cannot hope to be ia the front rank, nor
Bived from the sloush of mediocrity in
which there is no honiii-, no satisfaction
and no adequate reward. Believe me,
the old saying that there is "room in ihe
front ranks" is more true now than it
ever has been in the past. Tbe advanc
ing and more general intelligence of the
present, is demaniing more accurate
knowledge, more thorough qualifications
and better work of every professional
man, and that young boy who thinks "he
can get along all rihi" without a college
training, and make a perfect success of
himself will be disappointed find repent
his decision ail his life long,
There may be occasional exceptions,
but you will see the probabilities of
greater success, when I reiterate what
one of ihe cUss ha- said in his oration.
Mr. Hiram Orcolt. of Massachusetts, a
man hiith in educational work, says:
"Less than one per cent of the voters of
the United 8 ales are college graduates,
yet ihey hold 59 per cent of the desirable
positions in the government an 1 in the
bvsiness world " He also says that a
college graduate is worth from 200 to
300 per cent more in earning capacity
than a non-Ltraduate. It certainly pays
in morif y, and that is largely what we
wish to gain. If a professional career
be impossihle for any one, let him do
whatever he en.agts in with all his
mittht, with a firm determination to do
that thing the very best it can be done.
L-arn it thoroughly and do it well . Let me
tell youfor your encouragement that Mr.
Orcolt also says statistics show the High
school graduate re'eives .n averat'e of
100 per cent more in w-g i than me boy

THE SUNDAY BALL GAMES,
Major tr(toniichle Keeelven the Rea

i. . i I nion liiiitlon.
Mayor McConochie was yesterday
waited upon by a committee from the
Sunday night maes meeting and presented
with the resolutions adopted on that cc
cission. The mayor indicated in a con
versation afterward that he would likely
be governed by the expressions of pub
lic sentiment in his position, and that he
could not ignore the action of a mass
meeting as to the Sunday bail games. He
did not fully commit himself, how far he
would go in the premises.
Painters' union No. 181 held a largely
attended meeting at Hillier's hall last
evening, over which President David
Ulam presided. A committee composed
of Peter Schlemmer, Andrew Lerch and
Walter Hadsell was appointed to draft
resolutions relative to Sunday bill games
and Ihe committee reported resolutions
setting forth that whereas the sentiment
had been ixyressed thai working men
are not favorable to Sunday ball games,
being unable to attend any other day,
that it be the sense of the union that it
unanimously fayor the continuance of
Sunday ball to the end that men who
are obliged to toil six days in the week
be permitted to have this form of rec
reation on the only day at their disposal,
and that the mayor and city council be
respectfully rtquested n.n to interfere
with Sunday games.

Manager Sage's men lost the game at
R 'ckford yesterday, mainly through the
wildncss of Barison. The boys put up a
good game otherwise. Our Charley seems
to have had an off day. The score stood
4 to 1 in favor of Rockford at the close
of the game.
Tommy Ryan and his trainer, Billy
Gibson arrived here this morning from
their trip to Minneapolis. While there

purse. Both men are to fight at 142
pounds. Ryan accompanied by Billy
Gibson will leave in about 10 days for
Omaha to go into training, and will be
trained by Gibson and "Farmer'" Burns.
