"Water Lillies" most pleasingly and
won enthusiastic applause.
Dr. Stephens then introduced Col.
John Dymond, state senator, as the
annual orator in a very complimen
tary speech. Col. Dymond began by
speaking of the friendships formed
at school and of the pleasant recol
lections of school days saying that
the prosperity of schools depended
largely upon the loyalty of the alum
at "and expressed the hope that the
graduates would do all they could for
their alma mater. He then gave a
brief history of the establishment of
the Southwestern Industrial Institute,
amentioalag the part taken by HOa.

Every year the local community
contributed to the support of the sum
mer normal, which was really a part
of the institute, and this year the Po
lice Jury had given $500, the Town
Council $1,000 and the school board
$1,200, while the state contributed
$2,000. It was the duty of the state
and not the community to maintain
the summer normal,, just al is done
in the case of the Natchitoches
school, and Dr. Stephens impressed
the fact as one worthy of considera
tion by the Legislature. He wished
to see every institution treated liber
ally, but also desired to stress the
institute's claim for recognition of
the work being done in this section
of the state. In conclusion, Dr. Ste
phens paid tribute to the graduates,
bidding all good-by, with the injunc
tion to keep ever in memory this

Then thanking the audience
for their presence he declared that
the eleventh session of the Industrial
Institute was ended.

vessels used by Columbus and prow
sented to the United States Govern.

cured for this great production by
Mr. William N. Selig, who refitted
the ships and made them seaworthy.
In order that the production might be
as perfect a duplicate as possible of
the original achievement, Mr. 8elig
had even secured the very log-book
used by Columbus. This great fea
ture, which is the sensation of the en

been secured at great expense, for a
very limited engagement, by the Jef

for the first time in this house on
