i uc auuiiorium anu gancry were
filled with the relatives and friends
of the graduates. The token of the
class, a full rigged three-master
decorated with the class flower,
was suspended from the curtain
rail in front of the stage. The
program was most excellent. Dr.
John II. Boyd proved n most en
tertaininir speaker and his address,
while carrying through it a vein of
liumor, was very thoughtful nnd
his earnest, words profoundly im
pressed his hearers. Ills theme
was: "Brains and How to Use
Them." The musical numbers
were well done, particularly the
ptauo solo by Miss Iluukius ('11),
which was an especially line run
dcring of one of Mozart's sonatas.
President of the Board of Directors,
A. M. Stearns, with well chosen
words, expressed the gratification
of that body at the fine record made
by the class of 1912 and coiupli
mcntcd the instructors on the cm
elency and thoroughness of their
work. He also praised the gradu
atcs for their application and per
'sistcucc in their course of study to
the successful issue and encouraged
them to greater attaiumcntH.uxpress
lug the hope that each one might
find the answer to their class motto
"Hcutc abend schlcudcru wir wo
wcrdc wir aukcru?" in some bright
harbor with nil the good things
that obtain to the true and faithful.
Professor Boyd, in his usual dlgni
and graceful manner, introduced
the 8caker of the evening and closed
the exercises witu words ofcucour
agemcnt and advice to the bright
But not all the glory is due, nor
has all the good in educational work
in St. Johns been accomplished in
the High school. Had not all the
departments from the lowest pri
inary, those most Important ones,
where the first and most vital priu
ciplcs and surest foundations of cf
fcctlve study application and con
centration of energy arc inducted
into the nature of the pupils, per
formed their functions faithfully
and well, the results of the High
would not have been so promising
These most important minor grades
too often receive scant consideration
by the educational board. "Any
body can teach the little ones," is
too often the thought of these offi-
cers when selecting their corps of
teachers, But this view does not
obtain with our board. "The best
Is not too good," is their motto and
the effect is being shown in the
graduation of such splendid classes
as that of the ninth grade at the
Central school Wednesday evening.
Thirty-four, the largest in the his
torv of the school, 13 young men
and 21 young ladles. Bright, keen,
alert, every one of them equal to
the occasion, giving unimpeachable
evidence of the faithfulness and em
ciencv of their Instructor and the
application and ability of the slu
dents. A spleudid program was
given In a manner which delighted
the audience that packed the au
ditorium to the limit. Time and
space will not permit a detailed re
port of the program but there was not
an uninteresting feature in it. The
music was excellent for such young
singers, and thf young lady who

her work. The emblem of the class
was the white owl nnd was promi
nently perched upon the piano. One
of the most interesting numbers in
program was the Owl Critic, by
Pearl Evans, assisted by two youug
men. one as a oaroer ana me oiner u
being shaved ' 'and the barber
kept on shaviug." The class stat
istician showed the class to be com
posed of students of about a dozen
different nationalities including one
from China, Mr. Jower, and that
the average age of the pupils was
15 years. The different drills were
excellently done, epecially the In
dian club drill, demonstrating that
due regard has been given the sub
iect of healthful exercise in the
practice of calisthenics.
Bovd presented the certificates of
the grade and the program closed.
So interesting had it been that few
were aware that J.Pluvtus was con-
tributing a generous oblation to the
ruling power knowledge from
his water jar, until they emerged
from the building into the down
pour on their way home.

The Dog Nuisance
Kditor Kcvicw. I noticed a nhott
time ngo the discussion in your pa
iwr about the aunovancc
caused by early rooster crow
ing, but I would like to call votu
attention to something which I
think is very much worse, and that
is the numlrcr of dogs running at
large all over the city. A dog
fight on the street Is n common and
almost daily occurrence, they do
not appear to Ix; tagged or muwilcd
and also a common stock. Wc arc
in that jwriod of the year whcr
hot weather causes dogs to go mad,
and the lives of our coplc are in
great danger from It. Is there not
a law in regard to this matter and
'f Is should it not be enforced ?
Aim tt mere is no law, should not
the council make one and then sec
that it Is carried out? The dog
question Is n serious one and It
should not be overlooked. The
trouble with this as in so many oth-
things Is, that wc wait until some
damage has been done and then
wake up and try to do something.

A Tribute to Miss Boss
The close of the mIioo) year
causes one to reflect on the things
that have been accomplished thru
out the year, and In regard to the
High School the things that have
Ikxii accomplished throughout Its
History. A few years ago when
St. Johns began her rejuvenation, n
High School was started, which
has kept pace with the progress of
tlic city until today it can be classed
with the best in the cities of our
class. To organize the school, nnr
uire 11 utrougu its iniancy, iiiuur
ate High School customs, and in
general give it the standing It now
enjoys, was not n small task. It
renliired nliilitv la organize, to de
vise plans and'maturc them, and to
overcome tinforsccu difficulties. To
do this would tax the energies of
our best school officers, and the otic
who accomplished these results can
truly bc congratulated 011 the sue
cess that has been brought about.
As Miss Boss, who was principal of
the school from its Inception, leaves
for future fields of endeavor, a 1 eon
sense of gratitude accompanies her
from the patrons, students and
