The graduatlng exorclaes will occur Thursday morning, followed by the annual banquet, and by the princlpol's receptlon ln the evening. It goes without saying that among the young men of our clty, includlng those who will soon return home from school and col lego for the summer vacation, there is ex cellont material for a hlgh-grade baae-ball team. In view of thls, steps wlll be taken In the near future to learn what eubstantlal encourigement may be olfered for such a team, if one should be organlzed. It ls the hope of promoters of the scheme that ar rangements can bo made for a lease ot the Langdon meadow and that the gato receipts may be counted upon to cover all expense beyond that of organlzation and original equipment. Gamea could doubtless be ar ranged wlth St. Albans, Bristol and other Vermont towus which already have suc cexsful nlnes, and Montpelier, which ac knowledges no successtul rival in general progressiveness, ought not to be behlnd othor towns in the matter of such whole aome entertalnment as thls project assures. In the presenca ot a large and interested audience the graduatlng exercises of the Class of '0G, from the Montpelier Unlon School, were held In the school hall last Thursday afternoon, This class numbera forty-three.
