Bethany College has added another
jrear to her career of tuefnlnen. Teeterday
her forty-fourth annual commencement
took place and as usual it wae th e event

it perfect one and the fair and fertile hilln
mil valleys of Brooke county never appeared
lovelier. The winds, fraught with
the perfume of flowers, blew toft and
balmy over the familiar old campus, the
mo shone warm and bright and all nature
Deemed to amile in approbation on
the auspicious event.
At an early hour the prosperous farmers
ind their families for miles around began
soraing into town, and by 10 o'clock the
streets were full of vehicles, which were of
every kind and description, from the farm
wagon and buckboard to the family carriage
and stylish buggy of the city man.
rhe morning's arrivals added to those ot
two days previous, and the inhabitants
of Bethany formed a crowd that filled
very seat in the commencement hall as
loon as the doors were opened.
At the hospitable mansion of President
Pendleton on the "Heights," the same old

inder the wide spreading branches of the
rees stood the gentlemen of the gradiating
class, resplendent in shiny pings,
Mid nervously awaiting the time to
narch 'to the hall. On the porch
icre the venerable President, ex-Govsrnor
Bishop, of Ohio?Uncle Sick,
is every one calls him, the Faculty and a
lumber of the "old boys" who bad once
nore come 'back to their Alma Mater,
they were joking and laughing among
;hemselves, recalling the experiences of
he days when they were students. In
he parlors thelady graduates were receivng
congratulations, and Mrs. Pendle'on
ind MisaCammie Pendleton were graciousv
extending a cordial welcome -to all
somen. Then the*"Opera House Band arrived
and the party moved off to the hall,
Kbich was rapidly filled as the orchestra
rendered a selection. An earnest prayer
was offered >>y Bcv. Win. Dowllng, of
Marion, Ohio, more music followed and
:he salutatorian was announced.
The English salutatorian of tlie class
was Miss Flon?i?rice, of Ohio. Iter adirfss
was a model of its kind, being brief
- at full of practical and sensible aaggea:ions
to the class about to enter the struggle
of life. Conrage was her main theme,
ind she pointed out how it was that the j

vhether the tune is deserved or not. It
ay be said for Mr. McEIroy, however,
hathe was deserving of all the favorshown
lim by the large audience. He was generlily
spoken oi as ono of the best Greek
icbolan ever 6ent oat of Bethany. "The
Jreativo Power of the Mind" was the 1
;opic chosen by Jir. il. u. Baxter, ol i
3hio, who, alter another selection ol
nusic, was introduced to the audience.
Sit subject was a fruitful one, and he hod
lrawn up many good points, the force of

inder in delivering the same. Mr. F. S.

by another selection-from the orchestra.
Mr. A. D. Dowling, of Ohio, was the
lext name on the programme, but there
KtLB a blank opposite his name. President
Pendleton announced in a feeling manner

The commencement exercises began on
last Sunday when the baccalaureate sermon
was delivered by President Pendleton,
wbo has bat recently returned from
an extended trip in the South. His text
was, "Fear not." The sermon was a surprise
to friends who had known the President
all his life time; it was a vigorous,
thoughtful, keen, analytical discourse, and
made a lasting-impression on all who
heard it
Monday evening Miss Cammie Pendleton,
who has charge of the musical department,
and her amateur opera troupe, composed
of the students,repeated the operetta
of "The Duenna," given a few weeks ago.
It was a very gratifyituumccees. Tuesday

Wednesday morning the Junior Class
gave its performance, which was a very
creditable one. The first oration was delivered
by A, L. White, of Ohio, "The
Acme of Statesmanship," being his topic.
The poem wss by Miss Irene I. llalbert,
of Kentucky. The second oration was on
"Modern Drifts," by W. J. McG'lure, of
Ohio. The clan paper The BricBal, edited
by A. W. Mayers, M Ohio, assisted by

H. L. WiUett, of Michigan, was a very
breezy and spicy edition. President G.
W. Muckley deiiveretUkgood address.
The class day exercises took place Wednewlay
afternoon. The orator was Mr. F.
M. DowIioe. Every one who heard bia oration
spoke highly of it, characterising it as
the verv best effort of his life. Miss Laura
Westlakc was the faithful historian, and
the prophecy of Miss Flora Price was a
pleasing one, while the grumbling of Mr.
J. B Wilson caused many Hearty laughs.
Mr. Wolf was a very acceptable poet.
Wednesday evening the American Literary
Society gave its performance. The
jaloiatory was by F. S. Brown, of New

This Year's Prospect*.
The Board of Trustees met Tuesday
afternoon, and remained in session that
evening and nearly all of Wednesday.
There was a Uuger attendance of members
than over before, twenty-three ont of the
thirty being present Then was on exhaustive
disenssion of ways and means
necessary to carry on the- college. It is
now about oat of debt bat has little to go
forward os, and money is badly needed.
It was proposed to raise $10,000 in the
Board and a committee was appointed for
that purpose, and President Fendleton
given authority to aid in the work. It is
proposed to give the alumni more power
and voice in the future management of
Institution by allowing it tp nominate men
to ail vacancies in the Board, sod by other
measures induce the Alumni to contribute
more liberally and send more students to
the college. A resolution of regret was
panned over tbe recent death of Mr*. Tubmann,
of Qeorrii, ? libera) benefactress
of the college.
Prof. W. H. Woolenr was chosen,
galjut bis protest, to be Chairman of the
Faculty for the ensuing year. J'roi. 11. G.
Hagennan was chairman last year and
(erred very acceptably, but it is propoeed
to change the chairman every year. Prof.
Woolery is extremely popular and will
make a successful chairman beyond a
doubt, He will make a strong effort during
vacation Mieniira nigra students.
The Faculty was empowered to 51! |t
once the vacancy caused by the resignslion
of Professor Eutwood, who goes to
Ann lifcor, Michigan; his chair ia that of
Natural Sclent**. Pre?i(jcpf Pendleton
will continue nominally as such ofiiela).

raise an Alumni fund of $100,000 for the
college's use, and the prospect for this c

The attendance of the Alumni this year y
was very large, over Bfty from a distance u

and you hare an almost complete photograph
of the audience, excepting those
whom the reporter did not know. ti
The audience was made up of the
best elements of the society of'Wheeling,
composed as it was of members 111

denominations. Without regard to the '
religious affiliations ot the people the as- ai<
semblage was one that the Siatera of Mt. r;
de Chantal may veil be prood to have oc
entertained. Among the people who cl
filled Music Hall there were noticed U
strict sectarians, and all were
unanimous in . their approval of ol
the various exercises. The audience ca
was entirely good-humored and showed ol
excellent taste in approving the perform- m
auces of the young ladies and dispbvini: hi
good judgment in the hearty approval o! W
the moat worthy. It wa.*, altogether the iu
inort appreciative' and attentive audience w<
that has gathered at the school for many of
vears. the Quantity not depreciating the
quality. It is well worth quoting what a ga
prominent ami cultured lady of this city
said regarding the audier.ee. She re- ar
marked: "I never saw a finer,or more T1
appreciative and thoroughly pleased audi- C!
ence than that gathered here to-day." w
The spectacle ol rosy-cheeked maidens
arrayed in white dresses and adorned with m
ribbons ia enough to confuse the most unimpassionable
soul, and to describe each I*
and particularize the most radiant ones re
would no doubt place the reporter in an m
unenviable position. Where there was so ?f
much to commend it would be in bad taate ,
to single out any feature Jfor particular "a
mention. The young ladies in tueir light
ana becoming cosiumcg wereuie pictures q,
of hoalth, the rosy tint of their cheeks,
heightened by the exuitement of the hour,
due almost entirely to the health-giving
surroundings of the school, which are un- l''
surpassed iu the State.
The platform of the Music Hall was
tastefully decorated with ferns and flowers, m
making a neat sitting to a harmonious fo
background. The performers were applauded
without distinction, the moet gen- K
crous being bestowed on Miss Agnes re
Kane, of Pittsburgh, who certainly show- w.
ed remarkable talent In her recitation of
"Sualberto's Vow," and the solo of Miss as
Clementina Uoeveler, of Pennsylvania, a
sprightly miss who captured the audience 01
by her aweet vocalisation. Miss Fannie pi
Bobinson, of Wheeling, sang a waltx book
with peculiar grace and finish, giving evi- tx
dence of ber training at this school, which to
BUmia pre-eminent as an institution 01 <
muaical instruction, and as having had at el
its head the late Sister Mary Agnes, of in
wide renown. Tho thoroughness of the M
musical instraotiou in this iehoot was evi- B
deneed in the piano daett by IIUses Jen- as
sie Qaion and Jnlia Ooran. et
It mait not be inferred that the sole Tj
mission oI the school ia to lit vountr ladlea >
to grace the parlor alone; they are like- M
w!m instructed in the enlinary art, and
ore taught the atralgbt road to a man's m
heart, which, while not always through
his throat, a palatable dinner makea hi*
pulse beat with greater regularity and n
his tamper more even.
The literary performaaees always suffer fo
in sosje measure. The quality maybe re
