OHIO, THURSDAY, MAY 31. 1906. '"W COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES. The recurrence each yonr of thin, a glorious week, in the his tory of our public schools, bright oiih tlio pathway of tho years of plodding nlong In dull school work mid 'trudging tunny days through tho snow and wet, up that big hilt tluit guts steeper na tho spring ruys warm up tho flan nels. Thoro la 11 oortnin star, lending tho weary youngster on mid up; a star, lllco tho will-o-tho-wisp, that they roach mid reach for but never attain, but which points the way tf a pot of gold beyond tho misty swamp; a treasure that 1b sealed with a sheep-skin that roust iifst be possojsed, ero tho tronsuro ia opened to the seeker. This diplo- nrn, this gala weok, these honors, the nuiaio, the choors, tho excite ment prompts others to nchiovo, in their posuiblo uninindfulness of whut it all means, but above and beyond tho brilliancy and tho mo mentary popularity lie tho facts, and what these works are all for. All this is laying a foundation forjife. It means, will the indi vidual, in a few short yearn, pos sess the qualities that 'make life a joy, men higher in aspirations, capable of grasping the best there is in life; or it menus that tho lack of a little plodding now, spells plod all the rest of one's years. Life is a business grind at best, but how much more capable we are of making the most of that grind if we possess tho education. Tho educated person makes his head help his hands. The unoc'ui c.ited depend nlone upon their muscles. The difference between the boy that quits school early and tho boy that attains an education is that you see tho latter in future years superintendent of an operat ing company, while tho less for tunate boy whose education has been neglected, works at day ln bor. The educated young man or woman, . who seeks to learn a trade, accomplishes the perfect at tainment so much more rapidly than those less educated. Learn ing never comes amiss at anything, at any time in life, and tho person that of necessity must leave school young in life, attaine a future prestige in every sphere, by read ing good books and keeping pace with current news. Walk into a room whore a con course of ladies are assembled, and hear the conversation, and it is not dilllcull to know who of those present possess the educa tion ; who have road books, who are keeping pace with current af fairs. "Attend the mooting of gentlemon on an important matter, and the leader is the educated man. Such is the cast; such is tho form life takes on; it shapes itself. Tho schools of Logan aro among tho best in Ohio, and the Logan High School probably unexcelled in its class. Tin; senior olas.
