The commencement exercioes hsld a'
the Union Church of Island City, Thurs
day evening May 17th, are certainly de
serving of much praise. . It is seldom if
ever that a city of much larger propor
tion closes its school doors to a more
brilliant class than the Island City grad

first graduating class and for this reason
if none other can that little city. Justly
feel proud of the excellent program ren

The church presented an appearance
hard to -surpass. The entire room was.
festooned with decorations in the class

and the platform ' so profusely ' laden
with the class flower, carnations, pre
sented a rare picture. - ' 1
The first on the program was a duet
by Misses. Oaskell and Couch, near
the conclusion of which the graduating
class entered from the rear of the church
and headed by their president. Miss

exercise of the Island City High School.

of being jthe only young man of the class

Young Men from the Old." The nature
of his subject and the able manner in
which it wae discussed showed careful
and thoughtful preparation. ;
