PERFORMANCES OF RARE MERIT And Elicited Many Manifestations of Appreciation From the Large Audience Assembled at the Opera House? Addresses by President llOU'Ct'S. (>r Itniii'll nf Prliwtnilnii Rov. N. S. Thomas?Highest Honors Taken by Miss IOUft Bowers?Musical Numbers a Feature. The second annual commencement of the Wheeling High School was held last night at the Opera House, and the event attracted an assemblage that packed the theatre. The exercises were Interesting and well rendered and their merit gave an Inkling of the school's high, standard. There were thirty members of the class, and on the stage sat also Superintendent W. H. Anderson, Principal II. B. Work, President Frank W. Bowers, of the board of education, and the ministers who participated In the exercises. Only ten of the class gave performances. The graduates were as follows: Kiln Mae Bowers. Ella Mae Drown, Jeanette McKelvey Burt, Catherine Elizabeth Doddridge. 'Margaret Mae Dudley, Grace Elizabeth Fendt, Margaret Josephine Friery, Mary Antoinette Graham,Katherlne Wilder Hannan.Ellu. Curtis Haynes, Isabella Ilarwood Jepson. Olga Elfrldft Mayer, Bertha Williams McCoy, Adallne Charlotte Miller, Maude Murrln, Etta Mae Peddicord, Clementine Picket, Ruth Curtis Rice, Grace Barbara Schwann, 'Stella Sondernian, Alma Spell. Flossie Stobbs, Mary Agnes Wayman, Annie Marie "NVeitr.el, Lillian Minerva Wlncher, Alfred Tlppett Graham, Walter Gywnn. Harry Merle Miller. George Carroll Rhoades, John Forrest Springer. (Honor pupils are designate! by ") The exercises opened with the entrance inarch p'.ayeu ?y tlv; Opd-ra Housi- orchestra, to th- acconipanlir?ex:t of which the graduates came on to the stage and ,eiv seated in neatly arranged tiers. The class presented a very pretty picture. The girls were dressed in white and each held a bou quoi 01 uowers. The class colors, red and white, were hung above the stage, the footlights shod their illumination through tinted shades. Japanese lanterns hung over the class, and potted palms contributed to a beuutlt'ul stage sotting. Rev. C. B. Graham, of North street M. E. church, made the invocation, which was an effective plea for God's grace on the school, the faculty and the graduates. The orchestra followed with a medley of civil war tunes. Superintendent Anderson th^n introduced the class salutatorlan, Isabella Jept'.om "No Steps Bnekwaul" Miss Jepson's theme was the class motto, "Vestigia Nulla Ketrorsum," and her appearance was the signal for applause. Miss Jepson bade the audience a cordial welcome in a pleasing and well modulated voice, and her naturalness of composition and manner combined to make her performance one of rare charm. "Vestigia Nulla Retrorsum," translated is "No Steps Backward." Miss Jepson illustrated the chief incidents of the progress of our country as contained In the motto, and illustrations were drawn from other nations. The hope was expressed that the class would never retrace its steps. 3Ifss Jepson closed with a quotation from "The Chambered Nautilus." Miss Stella Sonderman read u cleverly written essay, entitled "The Riches of Leisure." The essay was eminently practical and up-to-date. It argued for the right use of time and opposed waste of money by people of little means who were anxious to dress as well as the rich. Leisure, said Miss Sonderman, was time in which to do something useful. Friendships could be formed, the work of charity be done and the uplifting of the lowly, and other boons could be shed?in leisure hours. "Rather to do nothing than to do good" showed n low state of mind. Miss Sonderman's paper was exceedingly Interesting and appreciated by applause. The next feature was a chorus by the class under the direction of Miss Lucy Robinson, superintendent of music in the schools. The selection was "All Hall the Victor." "Life's True Ideal," was the theme of an oration by Grace B. Schwarm, whose enunciation was unusually Rood and she wan hoard clearly In all parts of the house. Miss Schwann urged the forming of pure and true Ideals. The Ideals could not be too high even If the summits were not reached. Without Ideals no young man or young woman could succeed. "Eat, drink and be merry" was a poor Ideal. Love of gain, seeking to be monarch of all one surveyed, did not betoken the true conception of life. The dominant thought of Miss Schwann's argument was for a life of helpfulness to others and an ambition to live the best and purest of lives. Mail'* Progress. Miss Maude Murrln was the next member of the class to speak. "Man's Progress" was the keystone of her pleasing effort, and she entertainingly sketched the historical mllestonea In the.' elevation of man. It was an optimistic Ulrav of fartn .-mil Klnriiionno. Thin iiimv I she said, In on.- <?f scientific Inquiry. The world would continue to liccomo more learned, "and doubtlcHfl In coining centuries,"rvmsirlced Miss Murrln,'"Bome school Klrl will compare her condition with otu'R In noting tho ^nidations of Improvement." An exceedingly well read essay was that rendered l?y Minnie Wlncher,whose reading demonstrated elocutionary ability. "What Is Worth While?" was the Inquiry In lior pnpor. The question wait answered hy a series of suKKe?tlons how to make life more useful and pleasurable. Good company, uooA literature, good habits, snd a general employment 1 of one's better impulses were advocated. I ."The Legend of Innisfallen" was the 1 I little of a descriptive oration by Clementine'Ticket, which was a story of a ^ lone pursuit of a bird by an old abbott, and contained a moral beckoning on I with hope the weary mortal. Hiss ^ | Picket had a splendid delivery and her e pretty word pictures held her audlcnce ^ j Intensely Interested. Bertha McCoy chose as her theme, " | "Arma Vlrumque Cano," the opening j words of Virgil's Aeneld, In her oration c eulogizing the immortal Dewey and ^ graphically telling the tale of his marvelous victory at- Manila. Miss McCoy t described Dewey's noteless attack on t that memorable May morning, and her d peroration aroused considerable enthu- " slasm. [ "The Iniluence of Literature Upon the j: Masses," was discussed by Margaret Dudley. Literature was praised for Its S beneficlent effects. But books should be chosen as friends; the comjanlonshlp of 1 only the best should be sought. "Touch j not, taste not, handle not," was a good ^ rule to follow In relation to much of the' trash emanating from the printing C presses as literature. Miss Dudley's es- V say Was well prepared and charmingly f delivered. Girls' Chorus * The girls of the class, twenty-five In F number, gang an amusing chorus, en- 1 titled "The Owl and the Pussy Cat." S Alma Spell's oration departed somewhat from the beaten path of graduating performances, and as It was generously sprinkled with humor. It was j; greatly enjoyed. Miss Spell spoke on "Friends," and was In the nature of a satire on the clnss of people who use the guise of friendship to use up their 01 spare time visiting or for the purposes of getting something In return. In ]f brief, "familiarity bred contempt" In t, these Instances. But then* were true friends and Miss Spell paid tribute to them In an apt quotation from Tenny- ' son. , The performances proper concluded with the valedictory esray, "Let us Go Forward." by Ella Bowers, which was 8 one of .the most logical papers on the w programme. Miss Bowers urged pro- c' gross at all times, for death followed stagnation. The need was apparent In w a government and In life In all Its si phases. A forward movement was nec- Ji essary for temperance, and education 9 should mean the development of the moral as well as the Intellectual fac- cj til?v " * ~..j. ...an ivwuiu una mucn enjoynient If ho ceased to be selfish, and self ^ culture and refinement closely followed jc would tend to realize an Ulenl life. To a attain success, continued Miss Bowers, the motto of life should ever he 'Torward." " After Miss Bowers finished the read- , Ing of her essay, she stopped back to !i say the words of farewell to the mem- j1, hers of her class and the school faculty. '' She had scarcely begun this touching, 01 duty before she was seen to halt and begin again, but only to fnll suddenly c< to the fioor in a faint, due probably to a high nervous tension. Her father, ? Mr. Bowers, president of the board of >*< education, who was 011 the stage, im- a mediately rushed to her assistance and t( carried her into the wings, where restoratives were applied with the wished- iii for effect. The class and audience vis- c< ibly expressed Its sympathy for Miss v Bowers. F Rev. Nr S. Thomns, rector of St. Mat- c thew's P. E. church, then delivered a ji splendid address to the class, during which he complimented the performers o: for "the thoughts contained In their or- n atlons and essays. Speaking of Solo- tl mon and his proverbs of wisdom, there T was a touch of cynicism In his sayings. ,v sniu itev. Air. Thomas, and wiser "! though Solomon was he Is not esteem- *v ed as Is David, whose psalms sing of holiness rather than wisdom. Wisdom was not all. The speaker would repeat the words of the valedictorian "go ^ forward," but with the ideal of David " and not of Solomon. xv Pres. IJowpi*s' Tn President Frank \V. Bowers, of the k board of education, presented the diplomas. incidentally addressing well S: chosen remarks to the clays as follows: ^ "Ladies and Gentlemen of the grad- ^ uating class of 1S99:?I have the honor o! and pleasure to present these diplomas m you have Justly won and merited: and Y,' permit me to say had these diplomas c but. mere Intrinsic worth, they would c* indeed be but trifles. "But there Is something hack of these that gives them significance and value. They are symbols of years of patient study and Industrious effort. They will nerve to recall your school days, where P amid genial companions and under the ? sollcltlous and watchful care of your efficient and worthy instructors, you g, struggled upward to higher planes of c education and broader paths of knowl- Si edge. "They are proclamations anil certlfl- p cates attesting that you have been stu- P dlous and diligent and have reached **i that degree of proficiency that well Jus- ^ tifies reward. X; "The conferring of these diplomas marks one of the Important epochs of ? life. They also mark the beginning of ri further effort nnd further progress, "Graduates, your work is not yet si finished. The vast realm of nctu.il life C opens out before you. But no matter Sl what the task or how difficult the undertaking, meet it with the same energy and determination that you have displayed in your school pursuits and jn success must crown your efforts. a, "We all sincerely hope and trust thut these diplomas will serve to keep warm . the energy and industry that have dis- , tingulshed your school dnys ami that, . you will continue to press forward, ' honorably striving for higher and higher goals, for there are other honors yet to gather and other diplomas yet to Ul win." n> Each member of the class was the recipient of applause as well as the dl- 1,1 ploma. .Miss Bowers, supported by her w brother, was warmly applauded when CF she received her diploma, and the apprcclatlon Increased at Superintendent Anderson's announcement that the ,n Wheeling Business College scholarship se for highest honors had been awarded to her. The class song, written by Isabella Harwood Jepson, and treating of the jn class motto, was sung by the class and scored a hit with the audience. The a, words of th?* song were previously printed In the Intelligencer. The benediction was pronounced by Rev. Samuel Schwann, of the English jr 1.11J horn n nhlirch. t In STKUHEXVIfiliK HIGH SCHOOL.
