" When my son was seven years old he
began to complain of soreness In his right

below the knee joint, and extended from
the knee to the ankle. At the snino time

which was broken up, but the leg beams
"very badly awollcn, causing htm great
suffering, and tho muscles so contracted
that his log was drawn up at right angles,
lie was unable to walk, rould not even
"bear to be handled, and I thought him a
Confirmed Cripple.
"After a time we had the swelling
'lanced, midway between the knee and the
ankle, and It would discharge over a pint

Cincinnati to liavo tho leg operated upon,

Everything Was Admirably
And a Great Many People Attended
Who Were Beliehted With the
Entertainment OlTen.
The Commencement exercises
of the Clarksburg High School
took place during the present
week. Everything was admira
bly planned and a groat many
people attended who do not hesi
tate to say they were delighted
and royally entertained. Thoso
who have been interested In the
schools have informed themselves
concerning the methods, and re
sults, voice a general sentiment
that pronounces this ODe of the
most prosperous year's in the
history of our public schools.
Every department has been
carefully and systematically
organized. The entire school
appeared to move at the call of
the superintendent with an ease
and regularity that showed at
once that he was supported by
an efficient corps of teachers.
The superintendent, Mr. L. J.
Corbly, after his graduation at
the University, taught two years
in the South and before that hod
been a most successful teacher
in our own State. His first year's
work here has shown that he
merits his reputation as an edu
cator and disciplinarian. Prof.
J. Russell Trotter, the principal!
is a thorough scholar and a young
man of unquestioned morals. He
is also a graduato of our Univer
sity and a teacher of considera
ble experience and before coming
here was member of the Faculty
of the Conference Seminary at
Buckhannon. His work here
speaks for itself and we hope he
can be induced to remain next
year. The other members of the
High School faculty are Miss
Mollie Smith, whose two year's
here have established for her a
brilliant record as a teacher.
Miss Anna Dunn, a most consci
entious instructor; Miss Bell
Davidson who may be justly
proud of her record of many
years ; Mr. D. M. Willis an en
thusiastic worker and a young
man who is thoroughly up with
the times.
Mi3S Hornor, Miss Parrill and
Miss Shinn are all accomp
lished young ladies and merit
the many pleasant things that
are spoken concerning their
school work.
Two rooms whose pupils are
much attached to their respec
tive teachers speak well for
Misses Johnson and Taylor. Miss
Dora Ridenour has had a success
ful year at the West end. where
she had charge of a large num
ber of little people.
Music has been taught in all
departments by Miss Lottie Max
son, the musical instructor.
The bacctlaureate exercises
took place at the court house
last Sunday morning at 10:80 a.
m. A deviation from the an
nounced program was necessi
tated by the unfortunate railway
accident that injurned the Rev.
Mr. Day, of Morgantown, while
eii route to Clarksburg to preach
the baccalaureate sermon.
After a few introductory
remarks by Prof. Trot
ter, Rev. Charles White, of the
Presbyterian church, read the
morning scripture lesson and
made the morning prayer.
Instead of a regular sermon short
addresses wore delivered by Dr
Forrest, Rev. Thompson, Rev.
Davidson, Rev. Robinson and
Rev. Evans.
The music by the High School
orchestra was splendid. The
solos rendered by Messrs. Thorn
andDolan were indeed finoefforts.
Everybody pronounced it a very
pretty and instructive service.
The graduates occupied seats
in front of the rostrum and their
brightintellectual faces betrayed
that feeling of happiness and re
lief that comes with the Com
mencement season and its rib
bons, (lowers and diplomas.
The success of Sunday's pro
gram served to awaken a detper
interest in the regular graduat
ing exercises which took place
last night.
The following programme was

10.?Musi c Orchestra.
All the graduates performed
their parte very creditably and
held the attention of the audience
from first to last.
We were impressed with
the fact that Clarksburg
has as handsome and intelligent
looking young men and women
as are to be found anywhere, and
we are disposed to congratulate
our Public School for the quality
of the material they had to work
upon, and the masterly man
ner in which thev have devel
oped and perfected it.
The exercises passed off with
out a jar from the beginning of
the examination to the delivery
at the diplomas.
Excellent music was furnished
by Arnold's orchestra, of Park
The mob usually present at
commencement was wanting this
year, and perfect order was main
tained through the entire pro
gramme. The small fee charged
at the'door was missed by no
one and served to Keep out many
who would have been there and
would have made the occasion
hideous by their noise.
After the reading of the essays
Prof. Corbly addressed the
graduates in a few pleasant and
encouraging remarks, speaking
highly of the graduates during
the year.
All in all it was one of the mdst
successful Commencements 'our
city has ever enjoyed.
High Water! Orlres People From Their
Salem, W. Va., May 21.?
Never in the history ot our town
was water as high in Salem as at
five o'clock. It rained in torents.
The people did not think there
would be a high water, but at
5:30 it was rising so fast that
they became alarmed, and at 6
o'clock our town was covered
with water. Citizens on Water
street were thinking thoy would
be left homeless. The water was
so high in some residences that
persons had to be taken put on
horses. The water was in a
great many of the bnswess
housos two feet deep. Some of
the residents on Water street left
their homes and took refuge on
the hills. At this time it is fall
ing, and the citizens are not fear
ing much more danger.?Park

oiid none but pure water was allowed
to bo used. Ice inspectors are being
appointed in the larger cities of the
country, and all tli? ice taken from
ponds that are stagnated and impreg

aud its Bale prohibited. It is the duty
of the liaaltu officers to look into this
autterand see that no impure ice is
sold. We do not want a cholera epi

The company has spent several thous

their property aud it is now one of the
most complete institutions of the kind
in the country, with a daily capacity of
from 12 to IB tons of beautiful ice.
The water used in the manufacture of

in turn is distilled before being frozen
and it is absolutely impossible for any
impurity to remain after the wuter has
pone through this process. The water
is then conveyed to vats and frozen into
blocks weighing 200 pounds each. This
water does not come in contact with
ammonia as is claimed by those who are
not acquainted with the process of freez
ing, but is in iron pipes under freezing
vats. There are no secrets about the
works aud any one who iB in any way
