THE ENTERPRISE; W EDNESDAY, JUKE 25, 1890.
V 1l ! V-i .v! COMMENCEMENT Exercises at the Opera House Friday Evening June 20th. "THINK, UBSOLVE, ALT." CLASS OK 1890. The 16th anniversary of the Wellington high school, held in the opera house last Friday evening, was a brilliant closing of ' a successful school year und an auspicious beginning of life's work, for which the class of '00 has been so well fitted. The class numbered seventeen in all, who proved to their hearers the excellent ' work they had done In the school room by the creditable manner in which they acquitted themselves during the exercises. The magnificent audience which packed the Louse there beiug not even standing room after eight o'clockshowed ho great a hold the public schools have upon the affections of our citizens and how eager tbey are to do honor to the gradu ates. The stage was bnndsouiily arranged, be decked w ith flowers. A. bank ot terns, plants of every description and baskets of the most exquisite flowers were tastelully arranged on each side, witu a fair little damsel ensconsed in each, ready to re ceive the tokens ot respect from the friends of the graduates. It would certainly be a very unkind oversight on our part, if we were not to mention the appearance of the class, for if any one is evvr to be told that he is good looking tt is when lie graduates from school. The boys weie a good, honest, substantial looking set of young men. The gliliohneMi ami simplicity of the young ladies' d reuses were so pretty that one had tu watch lest lie lose himself in admiration of thir appearance and for get wliut they were saying. To say the least, they were as handsome a class as ever Wellington hud the honor of gradu ' atlng from her schools. Promptly at 7:30 the exercises began( and It was clpven o'clock before they were completed. The orchestra rendered a very fine overture, after which the Rev. Daw son Invoked the dlyiue blessing upon the audience, particularly the class of DO. The vocal march simply took the bouse by storm, as may well lie imagined one hundred voices with tho careful training of Prof. Harding would be capable of do ing. Mabelle Benedict came first on the list, having thougbtlully prepared the saluta tory. She held her bearers spell-bound while she, in her enthusiastic yet graceful manner, bade tbera all hearty welcome to this, their last effort as a class to enter tain them. Taking for her subject "Thrift, Thrilt, Horatio," she pictured most vividly the good old Anglo-Saxon word, 'thrift," not only In physical sense, but In an in tellectual sense "Nowhere is thrilt more essential than in the eager search for wealth. We may call it the very corner stone of success. The old proverb, 'take care of the pence and the pounds will take care 'it themselves,' embodies the true principle of thrift" Howard Hollenliach's orutlon was upon the thrilling subject, "Battl Cries." He spoke In a very becoming manner of the different battle cries In our history. The English fleet of Lord Kelson's staff In 1800, which won the victory over the French through the battle cry being tig nailed from the flag stall: "England ex pects every man to do hit duty." Beauti fully touching upon our civil war err. "The Union foreyer," he deducted the moral that each life had some battle cry that guided to victory or defeat Pearl Llnder came next on the program. and told In well chosen language and her usual unassuming manner of "The Woes of Wealth." Enlarging upon the misery or the miser and the cares oi the capital 1st: "Having once obtained wealth there is a continual fear of loosing it" Roy Witbetk'i ''Expositions" waa an oration excellent In every respect, Clear nd Tigoroui in composition, and deliv ered In an earnest manner, it more than sustained the high opinion which the au dlence had for the speaker. Considering the exposition of "iO the most successful one that had ever been held In our coun try, he thought the grandest one would be held in Chicago In U2, showing how rap idly the world I progressing, and thus our liberty does truly enlighten the world. The vocal solo by Misi Mabelle Bene dict waa listened to with treat pleasure, and added to the laurel she bad already won oy her salutatory. Rose Mallory'i oration on "The Urad- jrlnd System" was well delivered, in matter-of-fact style, urging parent to leach their boys and girls facts, as that Is what we want. "Stick to facts," says Tho. GradgTlnd, one of Dickens' character!. Education was hit hobby bis whole life summed op In nut-ihell regularly gov erned by facta. "We are all confronted by facts. Many ire unmerciful facta. Leave, ah, leave us to the solace of our Imagination." Roy Bennett discussed "The Coming Voter" In the atyle and energy of a full Hedged voter. One of the numerous ques tions he asked was if we waited our schools managed by Pope, taking away II our religious services. Hands off I "Young men, be prepared for the question when we come to vote for our country; thus our boys will be trained for true citi zens," ; Ella Bush read a very bright, witty essay npon "The Lazy Man," making It one of the best productions on the program. She handled her subject with perfect ease and jraoe, perhaps more so owing to it being ao very original. The whole thing is summed up In the Interesting poem OI one who wandered op and down The laziest man In all the town. Frederick H. Saunders delivered his ora tion with no little degiee of eloquence, his subject being "The Mother of Inven tion." He clearly preyed that imagination, not necessity, was the mother of invention by bis illustrations of the cotton gin, tele phone, cablegraph, etc.. etc. "Based upon scientific Invention, telegraphy waa not a necessity at first, or the great, tower at the world's exposition In Paris, and the Suez canal. Many persons check imagination in their children, forgettin j that imagina tion and reason go hand in hand." A beautiful trio by twelve young ladies varied the Droirram which was highly ap preciated, followed by the sweet strains of the orchestra. Byrd Chapman's sunshiny face gaye ev idence that she had been "Catching Sun shine" to her heart's content. She dwelt chiefly upon the necessity of sunshine in physical growth and moral sunshine for the home, quoting Beecher's saying, that it waa "worry, not work, that kills men." Will Robinson delivered the "Class His lory" in an eloquent manner. Being per fectly familiar with his subject, he was never at a loss to bring forth the wit and humor, for which he is capable of doing. Going back twelve years ago, when they first entered their names upon the school roll, be gave a brief sketch of their "ups and downs" until he brought the class of '00 out victorious. Alta McCoy, who ranks among the best scholars of the class of '00, chose for her subject "Our Flag," and exhibited a talent as a writer equal to her ability as a stu dent In thought and language it was a production of which she might well be proud. Beginning when our flag was first adopted, 1777, she depicted in energetic language the heroism of our fathers, the rich man giving his wealth and the poor man bis life for bis country. Edward Whitney was truly master of his subject, "Paternal Government." His oration was replete with good thoughts, and properly meditated upon one could but profit by them. "Something 1 wrong with society, which has changed by evolu tion and not revolution." Tho Gipsy chorus, rendered by the school was most excellent Maliel Pratt told us in a graceful and pleasing manner what she thought "The Good Auntio" was capable of doing, end ing with "a thousand good wishes and hail to our aunties." Frank Stanard gave us his opinion of "Ideal Government." This oration was mode up ot many good ideas, nicely worded, and with the easiness perceptible in delivery, he justly merited the applause he received from the vast audience. The next exercise annourccd was an oration by Pearl Metzger. "Hushl be still as any moose; There's a baby In the boose." She vividly pictured to us the many dif ferent classes ot babies, closing with that beautiful little poem written by James McDonald "Where did you eome from, baby dear? Out of the everywhere. Into here. Whence that three-cornered smile of bliss? Three sngeli gave me at once a kiss." The "Good Night" song, rendered by Missel Benedict and Townsend, Messrs Johnson and Rust, proved to the audience their ability In musical line. Edna Perkins read the "Class Prophecy" In her usual charming manner. It was Interspersed with wit and humor, not for getting any member of the class, making In all a very spicy production. Carl Williams, valedictorian of the class, took for his subject "The Keystone." "In every success of life there must be a key stone. They left their vacant placet in the school to the following class with best wishes. Last, but not least, the teachers received their farewell thanks, assuring them that their careful training and watch fulness would never be forgotten by the class of DO." "True eloquence," tayt Cicero, "Is to feel the subject deeply, and speak without fear." Thli certainly was evident In Mr. Williams' address, he having every qualification for a successful public speaker. Owing to the lateness of the hour Prof Klnnison presented the well earned diplo mas to the graduates in a few brief re marks, appropriate for the occasion, after which the Iter. Barton closed the exercises in pronouncing the benediction. That "tired feeling" Is entirely overcome by Hood's Sarsaparflla, which gives a feel ing of buoyancy and strength to the whole system.
