The address to the class about to grad uate from our high school was delivered in the Congregational church last Sunday evening- Tbe church was decorated tastefully, and the music was appropriate snd well rendered. Tbe cborcL was packed, floor and gallery, and tbe audience overflowed Into the vestry. Rev. A G. Wall read the fouith cnapiet ol Proverbs .1 r t v n . nr i . N udu uer, j. r. urmib uuerou prnyer. Rev. W. E. Barton then delivered the ad dress. The text was Isaiah 40:0. "Ills too light a thing that thou sbouldst be my servant to raise up the tribes ot Jacob, and lo restore the, preserved of Israel; I will also give tbee for a light to tbe Gen tiles (nations) that tliou may est be my salvation to the end ot the earth." We give a lew thought from the sermon. The latter part of Isaiah, whether written at the. Mrue or a century belore, was the graduating sermon to the Jews at the close of the captivity. This had been the school time of the nation. The proph ets formerly rejected they now read eagerly. They listened to the voice of Instruction, and lifted up their eyes to the hills from whence their help was to come. Their minds were broadened by contact with an active, commercial people. The careless were winnowed from the true IsraeaL Essential doc trine was sifted from that which was in cidental. Broken down as a nation, they gained a new conception of Individual worth; removed from their land snd templo and external forms, a more spirit ual worship aroe. They were lo return to their land with a larger mission than to rebuild tbe temple and restore the nation; externally the nation would never be so grand a before; but with new faith and a larger purpose they were to return, and establish a spiritual kingdom which should prepare for tbe Messiah who was to save the world. The call of Abraham and of Israeul was- not one of partially; It was for divine service. "Thou art my sctvant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified." You also, are called as students, to a land unknown, bill full of promise. Your call Is one of ser vice. Your rights are no more sacred than other men's, but your opportunities for service are greater. It would lie too light a thing tor God to do what ho but done for you, and shall do, for your own selrtsh uses, or for the buneflt of a narrow circle of your friends; you are to make your influence fell for good on all whom you may help, aud leave some permanent fruit as tbe result of your life work. You are the prophets of a new dispensation sent lo herald to tbe ends ol the earth, some new aspect of the coming of the kingdom of heaven. Tbe speaker then dwell at length on the nature and benefits of an education, and the respooalblliiy lo God sud men of those who had received exceptional op portunities, Illustrating his thoughts by anecdotes and statistic. ' He closed with four practical suggestions. Beware of Ihe power of evil to wreck your lives. Be practical. Continue to study and, If pos sible go to college. Have a lofiy purpose which recognizes your relations to God and your fellow men. The services closed with a beautiful anthem containing the words ol tlia 121st psalm. Ladles, Take Notice.

Wednesday evening, June 11, the Re publican electors convened at the town ball to select sixteen, delegates to repre sent tbte township at the county conven tion in Elyrla Saturday, June 13. Fully hree hundred electors were pres ent E. F.Webster was nominated tor chairmaa, but was -defeated. F. 8. Wads worth was then 'nominated and -elected. S. K. Warner was elected secretary and C. McDertriott assistant secretary. A motion was made by E. C Branson that the chair appoint a -committee of five to retire and select sixteen names to be voted on for delegates to Elyrla. This motion brought C W. Horr to his feet, who claimed that there had been an agreement made be tween Geo. L. Couch and J. T. Haskell, candidates for the nomination for the gen eral assembly, and their friends, to divide the delegation equally between them, and to break np faat agreement would be a breach of contract, but if it was insisted upon he should Insist that an adjournment be taken to Friday evening when each side could come prepared for the election of delegates in favor of its candidate. J. H. Dickson followed Mr. Hon. He, too, claimed that it might cause a rupture In the Republican ranxs In this community to break tbe contract. Mr. Dickson was followed by T. R. Herrlck, who argued that this caucus recognized no such an agreement The electors had come out to vote for delegates who were unpledged to any one. But if the caucus thought best to instruct the delegates after they were elected, all right, but the time had now come for the practice that had been established in this township for many years for certain Individuals to farm out the rights of voters, to be discontinu ed aud that at once. Every Republican elector Jn the township hsd rights and they must be respected, regardless of "bosslsm". Long and continued ap plause. Mr. Herrlck was followed by Mr. Bran son, who endorsed every word be hsd said. . . Matters began to warm np a little by this time so much lo that the chair had bard work to preserve order. Tbe cbalr then announced that there might be in the field another candidate for representa tive in the person of B. B Herrick. Fit teen minutes were then consumed in speech making by S. K. Laundon, S. S. Warner, R. A. Horr, J. L. Chapman, C. McDermott, B B. Herrlck, E. F. Webster, Wm. Vlscber, C. W. Horr and T. It Her rlck. The motion was then so amended iht the delegates were to be equally divided between Couch and Haskell, after which it was carried. At ibis juncture. C. W Horr, J. n. Dickson and S. K. Laundon bade the caucus gooi night and departed. This caused quite a commotion for a few mloutes, but order was Anally restored and the cbalr announced the following named gentlemen to act as a committee to select the delegates: W. F. Crosier, E. C Branson, B. B. Herrlck, Asa Pratt and James Sheldon. The committee soon returned with the following names: W.F. Crosier, J. II. Dickson. T. R. Herrlck, Frank Bennett, Wm. Vlscber" F. D. Warren, B. B. Horrlck, 8.8. Warner! E. E. Busted. ,C. McDermott, E. T. Robin son. II. Allyn, 8. K. Laundon, L. F. Clif ford and F. 8. Wadsworth. The selection was confirmed by a vote of the caucus and the meeting adjourned. - m I. O. O. F. Un acconnt of the rapid growth of tha order it became necessary to have a larg er hall to accommodate the members, as the present one is only 41 x 41 feet, whlob has to Include space for stulr-vay, recep tion, cloak, dressing and audience rooms. The third story of the Benedict block being adjacent ind unoccupied, it was de cided by the order that a committee be appointed to confer with Mr. Benedict and see what It couM be purchased for, and repot t Tim sum of $500 was agreed upon and the order accepted ana a trans ler was made last week. The plan now Is to close up the stairway now nsed to en ter the ball and remove all partitions, which will leave tbe space 43 x 45 feet to be used exclusively for a hall and make tbe entrance from the stairway in the Benedict block. The room purchased is 21 x 60 feet and Is still unfinished, but will soon be put in shape, by tMe order and divided Into reception, dressing and cloak rooms. Tbe order now has 140 members In good standing and the additional room purchased Is something - that has been needed for the comfort of all con corned. Call for Yonr Mall.
