good. The essay aud addreaawi of the
young ladle were well preired, and
were delivered In clear and expreaalve
tones, while the subject neleiAed were
of a character that made the gradual.

Could never obliterate.
The prvacntatlon of the diploma, by
Gov. l'eiiuoyer, to the graduate, waa a
miatt Intereating scene. All eye were
turned toward our respected governor

received them with modtwt bearing,

After the presentation of the diplomas,
the governor sjxike to the audience lu

Yet, one thing is wantlug, aud that Is
more room for student., and more room
eiscla)ly for the accouuuodaUon of
visitors aud friends on such occasion

attention to this our state iusUtuUou,
let them visit us aud take a view of tbe
surroundings, and we venture the asser

this is the moet healthful and beautiful
situation for the state normal school
that cnu be found in our rich aud fer

the welI-leaatHl audience have now
returned to their homea, and in those
