RUTH, THE MOABITESS, TO-NIGHT Class of Commencement Exercises for Fifteen at Opera House Friday Evening. Alumui Banquet. This week witnesses the nineteenlh annual commencement exercises of the Denison high school. A lar^e class of bright young students has been pre pared for graduation and will make their last appearance before the public as students of the high school next Friday evening. A most interesting program has been prepared for com mencement and will be thoroughly en joyed by all those who make it a point to attend on different evenings. The first event of the week was the baccalaurate sermon, which occurred at the Presbyterian church last Sun day evening. Dr. W. E. Hamilton, a member of the faculty of Simpson col lege, preached the sermon and in spite of the threatening weather there was a large congregation present to listen to the discourse. The text for the ser mon was taken from the fourth chapter of Ephusiins and a portion of the four teent'n verse. "That ye henceforth be no more children." The discourse was a most excellent one being full of sound spiritual advice to those who are about fo take up the sterner duties of life or who are to follow further the path of knowledge. He urged them to be independent in their moral judg ment and not too easily swayed by the actions of others in matters relating to their consciences. He said it was not the main object of life to attain what tha world calls success, but rathe: to live at peace with our own consciecces and to have our actions approved in the sight of God. The next important event connected with commencement week occurs to night at the opera house. The sacred cantata "Ruth, the Moabites" has been in course of preparation by the pupils of the high school for the past two months and has now reached a stage of perfection which assures an excellent ent jrtainment to those who are fortunate enough to attend. The preparation of this entertainment has been under the direction of Miss Pol ster, and those who attended ''Queen Esther" last year know what a treat a musical entertainment under her su rvision is bound to ba. No pains are bsiag spared in the way of scenery and costumes to make this beautiful bible story attractive. The characters vvil be represented by some of our best singers and this fact alone ought to draw a good audience. A small ad mission fee of 15 and 25 cents will be charged and tickets are on sale at Johnson's 9tore. The regular commencement ex ercises will be held in the opera house Friday evening at eight o'clock. This year the school board has decided prevent the usual congestion of the house by charging a small admission fee of 10 cents. This will be no burden upon those who are really interested in the exercises and will act as a check upon those who would otherwise jam the house. Tickets may be secured'at Johnson's store Thursday. The ex ercises this year will be unique in their nature. The spirit of the age in the making and publishing of mag azines will be aptly illustrated by the class in the shape of a living magazine All the important features of these dif ferent publications will be faithfully portrayed oy the members of the class. Editorials, poems, short stories, and contiaued stories will make up the program. A number of excellent musi cal selections will also be interspersed.

In looking over the REVIEW files of 1875, we find that on May 25th that year the citizens held a mass meeting at the court house and decided to hold a grand celebra tion. N. J. Wheeler was pres.ding officer and upon assuming the chair, made the following speech: "FELLOW CITIZENS: I thank you for this honor. It is needless for me to say that the occasion which calls you out is one that should be honored for all Coming time We are now living just one century from the time when the first blood of the revo lution was shed at Concord and Lexington for the voice of the orators who lately commemorated those first struggles has scarcely diea away. Although we dwell in a new country, with no ancient relics of that great strug gle around lis to excite our patriotism, yet we 'eel, welling up from our inmost hearts an intense desire to do something to keep alive in our own breasts and foster in the breasts of our children, that patriotic fire which sheds its bright gleam along our whole continent, shoots across the ocean penetrates the dark recesses of the Old Worid, and lights up the pathway of mil lions of our fellow men on their journey from despotism to the broad and fertile fields of our own glorious West, [Applause where they .nay enjoy absolute freedom, and gather around them the blessings of a civilization as high as any we read of in history. The presence of so many gentlemen from different parts of the county indicates that the celebration of the 4th of July, 1S75, in Denison, wiU throw into theshadeany for mer effort of the kind ever attempted. Let us gentlemen, on that day hear the bells clang, the artillery roar, the bands play let fire-crackers snap, squibbs and torpe does splutter, and when night shall throw a mantle over a day well spent, let the screaming rocket and the brilliant fire works declare to all that, come what may, we will wade through seas of blood to pre serve our National Liberty, "Union, one and inseparable, now and forever." [Ap- plause- ilia BELL QUITS COLORADO FIGHT Adjutant General Says Troops Are Used to Do Bidding of Corporations. Denver, May 24.—Sherman Bell, adjutant general of Colorado, has re signed, because, as he says, the Na tional Guard of Colorado is used to enforce the law against workingmen and to shield corporations that defy the law. Bell is a soldier and a Re publican, but has never trlten part in politics. In an interveiw he said the men his soldiers drove out of mining camps at the instigation of corporation in terests were hired by the same cor porations to carry the Denver elec tions. "I don't approve of using the mi litia of the state to help any political movement," said the general. "And I object, whether it Is in a positive or negative way. I_ am accused of using or attempting to use the mili tary in the late campaign. This is false, but the corporations used the militia for their purposes and instead of the miiitla being used to protect the people and uphold the law that force was actually degraded to ^the uses of local corporations to connive at the breaking of the law."

The mob kept vigil for some hours and finally dispersed. Wishman sur rendered to the authorities after the excitement had abated. Tyner-Barrett Trial Near End.
