A Resume of the Exercises of Lhe Week in Detail as Gathered by a Special Correspondent. The Alma College sixteenth annual commencement, just dosed, was the best in the history of that institution. More returned alumni and friends attended the exercises than in former years, and the exer cises were, without exception, of a high order. The graduating class numbers forty-five, the largest ever sent out from Alrna. Of these eighteen received college degrees, eleven finish the kindergarten train ing course, ten the academy, five the commercial department and one, Miss Maybelle Howard, the prescribed course in music. The sixteenth annual commencement of Alma college began at 7 .80 o'clock last Sunday evening in the auditorium of the Presbyterian church The chnrch was appropriately decorated for the oc casion, and vhen the time came for fht dignified seniors attired in their solemn gowns and "mortar boaniH, to file In to the seats reserved for them, every other corner of the church was filled with ex pectant listeners, who have learned that Dr. Bruskc's bacoalaureate sermous are too good to miss, and we do not belitve that anyone went away disappointed Sunday evening. The pastors of all the Alma churches sat on the platform and the opening reading and prayer were conducted by Hevs. Ramsey and Stew art of th. Kpiscopal uud U. B. churches, respectively. Special music was provided by a large choir under the direction of Mrs. St. John. Mr. f . L. MoBride'e fcolo was es pecially fine. Pres Brusko began by oomplinientiug the audience upon their spirit of loyalty to the institution of wh,ch he is the head, lie tpoke of the .Mc Kin ley oak, which was planted on Arbor Day, 1808, by the Alma G. A. R., and thanked the audience for their presence on this occa sion. His text was Dtttt. 34; 4: "And the Lord stiid unto him, ' i Is the l lund whu h 1 -ware unto AtTtihatn. unto Inane and unto Jacob, sating-, I will pjv It unto thy Seed I have eaused thee to see It with thine , eyes, hut thou sbait not go over thither.' It was only a few days ago that the doctor returned from a mouth's trip to California, where he attended the (Jen eral Assembly of the Presbyterian church, and it was to be expected that the sermon would be full of the trip and the Ass- mbly. The speaker said that he traveled in three capacities as a tourist, a naturalist, and a moralist. As a tourist he marvelled at the grand eur of the Rockies; as a naturalist, though he didn't see the lion and lamb lying down together, he did see the prairie dog, lot DWl, the unake, and the rabbit all occupying the same home in perfect harmouy; as a moralist with six hundred other moralists, he sat at Los Angeles and discussed the great and per plexing (jueHtious -f the day th- Mor I mon question, the drink question, and the negro question.

Analysis and Experiments Made from Milk as bought from Wagon- For s' me time there bus been an epi demic of typhoid fever iu Alma and the , local health officers were unable to lo- I cate the canse until a short time ago, when it was noticed that nearly all of j the cases were b cated aloug the milk I . , . rente aim among tne patrons or one pellicular dairy. Immediately step I were taken to secure some of the milk and an investigation made regarding j the condition of the cows at the dairy ; and their environment. It was found ' that the barnyard was not in a very healthy condition The milk was procured by a responsi ble person and nnder the direction of the local health board a sample was sent to a bacteriologist for analysis, which was done on Monday of last I week. On Wednesday a letter was received j from the bacteriologist station stating that the milk had been received aud a white rat had been inoculated with it. ( )n Thursday another letter was received stating that the rat had died before seven o'clock the same day the milk was injected into it. In this letter a statement was also made that a guinea pig had been iikx nlated with the milk and results were being awaited. The following day a letter was re ceived announcing that the guinea pig died within 24 hours after the injection was made and the previous findings had been verified, the milk being oondemned as unfit for use.
