necessity of being able to converse
in the original language of the old
master writers. In ; conclusion he
referred to the Jgrowth of the Eng

her caring for abused and down
trodden Cuba.

vin, entitled "The Minority, " which
was read by Miss Anna Lowber.

for Liberty," written by Max Rob
ert Wainer.
Tlie address to the graduates was
made by the Hon. Nathan Schaeffer,
of Philadelphia, on thesubject, "Does
Education Pay?'' He began by say
ing that his favorite line of argument
from experience, was that money in
vested in securing an education was
the best investment that could be
made.
He gave somo statistics which
showed that *40,000,000 is saved in
England yearly by putting brains
behind the hands of the) industrial
Classes through the agency of addi
tional schools."
Prom statistics gathered by the
commissioner of education in Wash
ington, Professor Schaeffer showed
that in the state of (Massachusetts
there is an excess of 33 cents in wage
earnings over other states, owing to
the fact that schools are kept at a
high standard and that pupils are
compelled to spend more time in
school. In conclusion, he urged the
students to strive .for an education,
not so much for the advance in their
earnings as for higher life which
education brings.
Dr.
Shortlidge conferred tbe
diplomas to the graduates, after
which the exercises were closed with
benediction by the Rev. Martin B.

Trains at Newark ■
Newark, Del., June 25.—Coroner
Frick last night empaneled a jury
to inquire into the death of Jane
Price, colored, was run down by a
Baltimore & Ohio train at the street
crossing above the station on Fri
day night last. The coroner's jury,
composed of some of the best-known
residents of Newark, was as fol
lows: Joseph Hossingrt 1 , George
G. Kerr, Alfred A. Curtis, George
VV. Williams, Dr. A. Robin. Dr. W.
H, Steele, S. M. Donnell andN. M.
Motherall.
Their verdict was that the woman
was killed by being run down by the
Baltimore & Ohio train known as
second section, No. 506 northbound,
on June 20, at 8.40 o'clock in the
evening. The verdict also contained
tlio following:
Resolved, That the jury, after
hearing the evidence are fully satis
fied that the persons who had
charge of tlio gates performed his
duty as prescribed by the rules of
the company for the safety of the
public, but would call the attention
of the railroad company to the great
need of better gate protection at tlie
said street crossing.
That the said train was rnnning
at a speed not compatible with
public safety, the preponderance of
evidence being to the effect that the
said train was running at an exceed
ingly high rate of speed. The jury
also feel that the practice of passing
a .station by a train while anotheris
discharging passengers is highly cen
surable.
That tho jury severely condemns
the habitual practice of the said
railroad company in running their
through train over the grade cross
ings of the town of Newark at a
speed jeopardizing the lives of the
people using the public highways of
the people using the public higways
of the town.
