In the junior class of the University of
Oregon tlaw school forty-six students
were examined at the examination held
there this week. Ninety-four per cent
was the highest average obtained - and
Edwin Mays, of this city, stood second
with an average of 93 per cent. This is
a big compliment to Mr. Mays and a
credit to this city.
- A prominent citizen called our atten
tion yesterday to the innumerable army
of thistles that is flourishing in the east
end of town. Everyone knows what a
pest they are and how important it is
that they be cut down. Now is the' time
- to destroy them before they hare gone
to seed and prepared the way for the
coming of a greater throng next season.
. There need to be a thistle ordinance on
oar city's statute books and it would be
well to revive the practice of compelling
them to be destroyed.

Fully 500 people crowded the Baldwin
opera house last night to see the closing
exercises of the .high school the exhi
bition of the' junior class. The stage
was a bower of flowers, arranged in very
pleasant effect, and the fair, bright faces
gathered on the platform lent van inter
est to the scene that was felt by every.
one in the audience. Long before the
hour for the exercises to open every eeat
was taken, and a bush of expectancy
was over the owd as the curtain rose
and disclosed the class seated on the
front of the stage, with the singers in
the background.. Those composing the
class were Homer Angell, Pearle. Butler

JNona Kowe then read an essay on
"The Past and Present," in a very pleas
ing manner. Her enunciation was good,
and the thoughts of tte paper were ex
pressed in graceful language. She spoke
of the education of the youth in ancient
times, and of the marvelous results of
the present age. -
In reciting "Whitman's Ride" Miss
Jennie Russell scored a success. - The
piece was new to most of the audience,
and everyone felt a great interest in that
journey of 1342, which did so much for
the csuntry in which we live. The ges
tures of the speaker were in good taste
and her manner free from any fault.
' The solo by Myrtle Michell was heart'

ceived the generous applause that fol

"The Future of America" was the
title of a patriotic oration by Homer
Angell, in which he pictured in hopeful
words the future of our country. His

North America America, the nation of
nations," was a fitting close to his ora
