FENN LYMAN PREACHES BACCALAUREATE SERMON TO UNIVERSITY CLASS. GRADUATES GET ADVICE Seniors Are Told of Life to Come and Manner of Best Answering Its Questions-Pastor Delivers Eloquent and Polished Address in University Hall-Commencement Week Begins. Before a large crowd of students and parents, Rev. E. Fenn Lyman, pastor of the First Congregational church of Great Falls, started com mencement week yesterday afternoon with the baccalaureate sermon at Uni versity hall. Mr. Lyman's sermon was full of kindly advice and criticism for the students and, taking his text from Isaiah, 50:4, "The Lord Jehovah bath given me the tongue of them that are taught, that I may know holy to sustain with words he that in weary," he showed the duty. which the student, educated at the cost of his parents, his teachers, the state and the Christian world, owes to himself and to the world to make his life a credit to the nation and to Christian ity by becoming a leader and teacher of his fellow men in whatever sphere he chooses for his own. His final ad vice to the graduating class was brief and to the point and lie eldsed by ask ing that they demand for themselves the position for which their education has fitted them and that they live al ways with the words of the great prophet, which had been chosen as the text for the sermon, fixed firmly in their minds. Caps and Gowns. Promptly at 3:30 the members of the senior class, wearing the cap and gown, filed into the big assembly hall, followed by the faculty and the in vited guests of the occasion. The in vocation was spoken by Rev. Dwight S. Bayley of the Congregational church, following which the girls' sex tet rendered a selection from Luben stein entitled "The Angel." Rev. J, W. TaFt then read from the thirteenth chapter of First Corinthians. Rev. W. H. Bagby said a prayer, following which Dr. Duniway introduced the speaker of the day. Mr. Lyman spoke in part as follows, after reciting his text: wnicn Dr. Duniway introduced the speaker of the day. Mr. Lyman spoke in part as follows, after reciting his text: A Mood of Contemplation. "These words seem to be the solil loquy of one who recognizes himself as possessed in some degree of a trained and cultured wind. We seem to see him standing between a pro cess of preparation and a task. In a mood of contemplation he is uttering to himself his convictions as to the meaning of it all that he may better get himself in hand for his waiting work. He does not speak as one who is boyishly casting his books aside as though liberated from an irksome bondage. There is rather upon hiit that spirit of serious dignity to which every manly soul rises when, in con scious readiness, it addresses itself to a high enterprise. "And the way in which this speaker of the ancient past deals with the fact of his own training and discipline af fords suggestive guidance for such a moment as that to which you of this graduating class have come today. "The first conviction to which the voice of this soliloquy gives utterance is this: 'The Lord Jehovah bath given n1e the ttongue of them that are taught.' It is a fine thing to be con scious of having a trained intellect to feel qualified in good measure to do first hand independent thinking. To be a peer of the realm of learning is one of the noblest distinctions a man can reach. When, Saul, the young Benjamite, the future king of Israel, stood erect in the assembly of the people and saw that his broad athletic shoulders were higher than other peo ple's heads, I imagine there must have surged through him a consciousness of power that made him a better and more courageous chieftain in the de-' fense of his nation. And there must have been a far finer glow of power in the breast of such a, one as Daniel Webster when he arose in the United States senate and in the conscious superiority of intellectual strength gave himself to the task of demolish ing the trenchant arguments of Hayne and thereby swinging the whole nation forward with his slogan of 'Liberty and union.' His, in surpas sing measure, was the 'tongue of the learned' and he did well to rejoice gladly in its possession. "And if it was right and manly for Saul to modestly rejoice in the pos seshion of a body that was large and powerful-if it was right for Daniel Webster to be glad in the possession of gigantic intellect, then I take it that it is right for you whose arrival at the degree of intellectual excellence to which you have now attained is be ing thus publicly recognized, to cher ish with a heart-throb of conscious strength that whereunto you have at tained, and that, too, without being inconsistent with that modestly which is the best ornament of power. So then, inasmuch as you, my young friends, have pursued your prescribed (Continued on Page Four.) HUSBAND RISKS WFE AARON COHEN OF BUFFALO LEAPS INTO NIAGARA RIVER TO RESCUE COMPANION. ATT[MPI IS UNAYAILINI After Struggling for an Hour in the Swirl of 'Rushing Waters, Rescuer Is Forced to Relinquish Hold and Body of Woman, Is Swept Away, but Is Finally Recovered by Two Men. Niagara Falls, N. Y., June 6. Aaron Cohen of Buffalo saw his young wife leap into the swirling river between Second and Third Sis ters island, this afternoon, only 150 feet above the brink of the cataract. Without a moinent's hesitation he fol lowed her, caught her hand and struggled desperately to save her. Mrs. Cohen probably died in her husband's arms. Before it was pos sible to bring efficient help an hour had passed, during all of which time Cohen was making frantic attempts to reach the shore. But the struggle against the current-at this point it is about 20 miles an hour-was beyond his power. Fortune aided him. With his wife tightly clasped to him he felt himself hump into a tree stump and on this he got a grip with his one free hand. Hurry to Aid. Hle shouted for help. Finally word was carried to the reservation police and Policeman James Martin and three other men with ropes hurried to the scene. Three times they threw a rope before it fell within Cohen's grasp. When he did catch it he was too weak to tie it about his own or his wife's waist. The two were 20 feet away from shore and it was e, tremely difficult, owing to the pro' carious nature of the footing, to make a good cast. Pinned against the tree stump by the terrific rush of wa ter, all the strength had gone out of Cohen and he had been unable to keep his wife's face above water. Once Cohen had hold of the rope the men on shore began to pull, and Martin, who was in the front, slipped and fell into the stream but quickly regained his feet. When within 15 feet of the shore Cohen lost his griti on his wife's body and it was car ried down stream and was lost to view. "She Is Dead." Cohen Was so far gone when the rescuers got him on shore that lie could not speak for 10 minutes. His first words were: "She is out there. Go and get her. She is dead. She died in my arms." Superintendent Perry and Chief Shoe bridge skirted Goat island shore look ing for the body, but could see noth ing of it. Williani Blennett and Hugh Brown say the body after a long search. It was held fast by a rock about 100 feet above the brink. Without ropes Brown and Barnett waded out into the stream and moving carefully over the slippery rocks, reached the body. Just as ,Brown touched it the cur rent caught It again and it whirles around in an eddy. It was with the greatest difficulty that the two men brought the body to land. Life was extinct. Cohen says that worry over the fact that she was unable to nurse her infant depressed his wife greatly and probably caused her desire for death. He is a robust man, and quickly re covered from the shock. JAPS SAY FAREWELL TO COCKTAIL CHARLEY Tokio, June r.-Charles W. Fair banks, former vice president of the United States, who is in Japan on his tour of the world, left Tokio for the southern part of the empire today, at companied by his private secretary and a representative of the Japanese for eign office, delegated to attend him (luring his stay in Japan.

A POSSIBILITY I EMPTY' AS LAST , YEAR3s BIRes BlEST. EVERy 'Il /'Nir CLEANEh / t OU f rH E\\; AIUIM I il 4FýýAA IORRIS FORWARDS DATA ON PAPER DUlY CHAIRMAN OF AMERICAN NEWS PAPER ASSOCIATION WRITES TO SENATOR ROOT. New York, June 6.-John Notris, chairman of the American Newspaper association, forwarded to' Senator Root a letter setting forth new data on paper duty. The senator's atten tion is directed to a comparison of his newspaper and periodical constit uneny as compared with his paper constituency, and the statement is made that newspapers of New York state pay seven times as much for labor as all the news print paper mills. It is set forth also that the labor cost of a ton of paper is less in the United States than in Canada, the average pay per day in this state being $1.65. Senator Root is asked to consider also the serious menace to the forests of the state through the destruction of spruce. Mr. Norris says: "Newspapers are entitled to con sideration from you even if you ig nore the extraordinary functions they perform in disseminating intelligence, in promoting knowledge and in facil itating the work of government. "Those who read the papers are in close touch with the work of ad ministration; and the furtherance of the newspaper mission is worthy of your serious effort. An increase in the consumption of paper is due to the increasing intelligence of the people." CONDITIONS ARE BAD FOR SHOOT LAST DAY OF STATE EVENT AT GREAT FALLS BRINGS UNI FAVORABLE WEATHER. Special to The Daily Missoulian. Great Falls, June 6.-A drizzling rain and cloudy Sky made conditions anything but good for shooting to day, and the last events of the state shoot were not remarkable for good scores, although a few crack shotp of the state distinguished themselves. The individual championship shoot at 50 singles was won by Ben Prosser of Helena, who succeeded in breaking 48. Prosser did some of the best shooting of the day. The handicap medal shoot was won by W. J. Cummings of Ctockett, who broke 90 out of a possible 100. J. M. Gaunt of Great Falls was second, with a score of 87. E. F. Confar of Livingston, winner of the handicap medal last year, divided his share of the purse, amounting to $66, with Gus Steffens of Bozeman, according to an agreement between them at the last tournament, when they were tied before the shoot-off. C. H. Smith of Butte, secretary of the association, was this afternoon presented with a silver wine set and a handsome carving set by the mem bers of the association in recognition of his efficient services as an official. The tournament was a decided suc cess from every standpoint and is considered one of the most satisfac tory in the history of the associa tion. FELLOW MINERS SAVE BURIED MAN FROM DEATH Speilul to The Dally Missoulian. Wallace, June G.-Working franti cally for 15 hours, a scofu of fel low miners were able at noon to day to rescue Swan Anderson, who had been1 buried in a cave-in in the Morning Mine tunnel. All night and all Sunday morning the men toiled in a race against death, changing shifts every half hour, so terribly tiring was their labor. The escape of Anderson is considered as miraculous and, had it not been for the fact that mine timbers formed a pocket over his head arid enabled him to breathe, the rescuing party would have exhumed a dead body. Anderson's feet were visible all the time, but his body could not be moved. He is badly injured in ternally, but as no bones are broken there is a good chance for his recovery. ASIA MINOR IN BAD CONDITION TREACHERY OF THE TURK IS SHOWN IN MASSACRE OF INNOCENT PEASANTS. Beirut, May 16.-It is evident that conditions everywhere in, Asia Minor are far from settled and that it will take time and a government much stronger than the present one to make it possible for people to go about their labors with safety. After the terrible massacres and the pillage and burning of Adana, a new valt and new troops were sent from Constantantinople. Much was ex petted of them, but they have don" little to improve conditions. The inefficiency of the government is seen and felt everywhere. Six thousand troops and hundreds of offi cers swarm about Adana and eat up the best there is to he had. Relief committees are compelled to send intol the country for the commonest food staples. The work of relief at Adana is be ing pushed so far as means will al low. At present in the big camp there are 14,800 persons on the ration list while 1,400 more are drawing daily rations from the home of one of the missionaries. The unfortunates have been herded together in rags and squalor, huddling under inadequate shelter to protect themselves from the heat, at nigh. crowing together to protect them selves from the cold because df in sufficient covering. Under such con ditions there are in this c mp today hundreds of children with measles. In one hospital alone there are more than 500 wounded. Famine May Come. Crops in the Adana region are ripe and unless they are gathered soon famine inevitably will result. Guards to protect the people who have dared to venture out to gather their crops save time and again proved the treachery of the Turk. The farmers save been either stabbed or shot down is soon as they came outside the city limits. From Bagllehe it is reported that 'ecent events there showed that Mo lammedan fanaticism and hatred of he Armenian was even more intense :han in the massacres of 1895. One calf of the male population over 12 rears old have been killed and Protes a(lts suffered more in properti m than lid the Gregorians.
