Superintendent Kinnlson imparted some good, wholesome advice to the eraduates on Friday evening.

Many persons, he said, that had reached even higher grades were nothing but ciphers in this world. On entering into business ho charged them to look over the situation carefully, and not to harm others, as there wag a broad field before us Uiat makes room for all. in special cuts with their toilets careful ly arranged. Tho productions wer well rendered and conveyed valuable suggestions, and many were the presents which attested tho love and esteem tke recipients were held by tho donors.
