NEW USE FOR ELECTRICITY.
Electricity, long used in the lab
oratory for experimental purposes
only, is fast coming before the pub-,

the distance of miles from his
source, and by : electricity thanks
to Mr. Edison's recent discoveries
our streets and houses are light
ed more brilliantly than by gas.
While all these results are evident

Sunday was baccalaureate day
at CMC. As a whole the exercises
were even above the usual stand
ard. There was a sermon by Rev
Allen Wilson of Indianopolis, In
diana, a prayer by Rev. Joseph
Jkmery, who was a professor in the
institution thirty years ago, and
the best music that has ever been
heard at the college on a similar
The ' exercises occurred in the
Armory. The big auditorium was
decorated for the occasion though
not elaborately. National ' colors
in bunting were draped along the
galleries and streamers of ' orange
were in display. There were palms,
and potted plants on the stage, and
the class colors of purple" and gold
were in profusion. As usual the
attendance was large, the number
being estimated at 1,000. ;
The graduating class occupied
seats m the center, immediately in
front of the stage. The faculty;
choir and city ministers were on
tne piatiorm. me invocation was
by Rev. Noble of the Baptist
church, and the scripture lesson
was read by Mrs. Humbert of the
Christian church. Rev. Green of
the Congregational church read a
hymn, in which the congregation
joined, and Rev, Joseph Emery of
fered prayer.- The latter 'was ; an
eloquent petition, ' and its utter
ances recalled to many in the; au
dience old days of 20 years and
more ago, when Rev. Emery was a
leading member of the college : fac
ulty. Ddlicate reference was made
to the immense development that
has taken place in the college in
recent years, and there was a gentle
invocation for a future of greatly
expanded usefulness. Of h especial
excellence were two anthems sung
by the choir, - They were from the
music recently prepared for the
May Festival at Eugene. 5 In con
trast with the music of some form
er occasions, of the sort; the ren
dition was with gieat precision
and most excellent effect. ' The
fine soprano of Mrs. Pernot never
appeared to better effect, while all
the other parts were carried with
a vigor and finish that gave the
audience great pleasure, ' .
lhe sermon was more in the na
ture of an address to the class than
a pulpit oration, but was none the
less effective for that. It was intense
ly practical, and devoid all attempt
at flowers. A characteristic was
pungent illustration that frequent
ly brought audible smiles from the
large audience. It was a very
The theme was, "The Image of
God.'"' The speaker dealt entirely
with rules and aims that youttg
people should adopt for their guid

declared, ' The old saying, ''Hitch

not practical. Ds no u?e to give
a ten thousand dollar education to

is to be perfect in the vocation that
is adopted. - It is better to. be a
success in an humble sphere than
to be a failure": in a . higher one.
I would' rather be a good boot
black than to be a failure , as a
physician." , The rush of young
people to the cities is founded on
theories and plans wholly wrong.

their lives to be the servant of
somebody else, when , they might
remain in the country and be mas
