THE IMf IMIMATII KAN SOCIETY
Finds its membership among the young
lady students of the school, and has
been in a particularly prosperous con
dition during the past year. Nearly all
its members arc active workers, and
have received much practical benefit
from the literary work of the society.
Last Friday night marked an era in its
development as a regular factor in the
institution, when its lirst commencement
lecture was given. This Philomathean
society, followed by the Gamma Sigma
society, marched to the church in a
body, where the president, Miss Anna
Hallock, introduced I'ev. T. A. Clapp,
who had chosen for the subject of his
lecture, "There is something in the Air."
This peculiar title, the speker said, had
been selected by him, thinking it pos
sessed at least the merits of a mustard
plaster that of drawing and the
crowded seats verified the prediction.
The lecture was on the value of the
atmosphere, in a scientific sense, to man
kind, and was interspersed with humor
ous and pointed anecdotes, w hich kept
the audience in a continual goc-d humor.

tide. Trials, temptations ami sorrows
are the dark even tides of every life. It
lias been said that man never reaches the
ugliest limits of intellectual ability un
til tested in stub trials. It is in the
moments of deepest sorrow that poets
lream the sweetest jiocms and artists
paint the grandest pictures. It was in a
moment of sadness and darkness that the
light of truth dawned ujioii Martin

Oration "The Autlnhrity of Society
over the Individual" W. II. II. Myers,
Jr. Where should the authority of

the public mind ever since the time of

individual should Ih assigned the part
of life in w hich the individual is most

chiefly interests society. That society

It i a historical fact that when society
is just forming the individual has much
more influence than at a later period of
its existence. The present tendency in
the U. S. i towards the centralization of
power in the hands of society, and unless
wise legislation intervenes to check this
tendency it will be the rock which will
eventually wreck our ship of --tate.

Bates. In the history of almost every
great nation there is found the work of
some great builder, who took the parts

understood the needs of his people, and
strove to satisfy them. He obtained an
outlet to the Dlack sea by way of the
Azof, and then turned his attention to
the civilizing of his subjects. His fa
mous journey was undertaken in 1(597, on
which he sought the arts and employ

return he began his great reforms. The
outcome of his war with Sweden gave
him an outlet to the ocean. It is impos

Oration "The power of an Idea"
B. II. Moore. Archimedes was unable
to move the world, because he had no
M.M.e on w hich to rest his lever. Hut the
wort 0f intelligence mav be stirred to
its very depths by the proper enforce
ment of an idea. There was an idea be
neath the omnipotence which brought
us forth. It was simply by enforcing
an idea that Najmleon became possessed
of his empires. The idea of Morse has
almost annihilated time in the transmis
sion of news, and the idea of Watts has
revolutionized transportstion, but great
er than these thoughts of science are the
conceptions which influence and change
man's inner life. Through literature,
ideas have been more influential than
through any other soune. Sublime
thoughts live, grow and are made more
powerful by the addition of other noble
ideas, and wield a mighty influence.
The ability to think and express our
ideas is the most )iotent factor in mould
ing ami shaping sixieties and govern
ments. No one can th k on lofty sub
ject without himself le c-ming more
noble. Sublimity of purjsise is only our

Oration "Motor" Ik-lie Sedgwick".
Beneath the tree are the rools, beneath
every effect there i a cause ; but a the
stately tree attracts more attention than
it roots, so the effect is more prominent
than the cause. The iower is the ability

prompts the u-e of th ower , All

aroused to activity they exhibit their
abilities, lint without the motor applied
they are profitless. Thus nature is an

while similarly important cause are

found the personal greatness of in
dividual men. It is as natural to desire
to make the most of life as it is to desire
to live; yet aside from this ounmon
motive, the impulses which act as
stimulants are a widely different as
people are differently constituted. Strong
desires frequently mould the character.
It can often be said of erreat men that
they have built up their position by the
motive power in them. By a repetition
of acts a habit is formed, and a habit
long continued engraves its attribute up
on the foul.
On Monday evening the Gamma Sig
ma and the Philomathean societies
marched in a body to the church, where
the annual commencement lecture before
the Gamma Sigma society was gien.
This society it regularly incorporated
nnder the laws of Oregon as a debating
society for the gentlemen students of
the institution, and is a valuable factor
in the school work. The lecture was
delivered by President I). T. Stanley, of
Monmouth, and was very interesting
aud instructive. This age, lie said, is
essentially one of thought. The ages of
gold, silver, brass and iron have passed
away. With proper effort any one can
make a success of life. Every one must
strive for an ideal which can never be
fully realized; the artist or sculptor
who fully accomplishes his ideal lacks
proper imagination. So in every walk
of life. Always look forward and you
will go up step by step almost uncon
sciously. God never created a man for
naught. lie has implanted in every
man a desire to do something, and at the
same time an ability to attain a certain
degree of success in that thing. Every
mind is adapted for more or less success
in any work, manual or professional,
with careful and determined push and
vim. The value of enthusiasm as a
motive power is greater than natural
ability alone. Young men starting out
m life should not expect too much from
the world; do not be iu too great haste
to teach the troal. Do something well
that the world may be better for your
having lived in It, and remember that
it is not the thing that is done, but the
way it is done, that values.
Oration "Man, What is thy Des
tiny?" A. IL Snider. Is it the only
purpose of humanity to develop the
great fabric of human workmanship, or
is this fabric intended to train man lor
a higher and grander destiny? Are all
the faculties and abilities which are
aglow with the nature and glory of the
Creator to lie used only in jierfecthig
and sustaining the works of this world?
It is not the highest aim and only
destiny of the image of his God to
have the torch of knowledge lit up in
him merely to add a spark of richness
and lieauty, then to go out in utter
darkness, never more to shine. There
is a higher mission for man than to

for humanity than to H'rpet uate civil

Essay "The Meaning of Life" Lucy
E. McKune. Life has varied meanings
to eople in different stations. To those
who would lie succeful in the world
it is a wriod in which to cultivate and
use all the (lowers they wse, making
life pleasant for themselves and other.
Mere self improvement i not the true
aim nl life. Many do not allow the
benuties of nstuie to enter their hearts
and lives as they should do. To lie
truly happy, one must lie ever busy in
some good and useful work, not alone
for self, but for other. To catch the
real meaning of life, one must seek to
understand and appreciate the world
alou l.im. There are too few who
realize what it is to live up to the pos
sibilities within them. Evil bright
day of one's life means more than the
mere sunshine it I an example of
God's glory and majesty.
Oration-"S icce" Rev. F. L. Pot.
How shall I succeed ? Men do not find
success they achieve it. t the very
threshold of life we must carefully lay
our plan and work toward an ultimate
result. Work, untiring and persevering.
is the only key that unlocks success.
Our work must lie commensurate with
our nature. Wealth, position, power.
fsme, are all goals for which men strive,
but they fall far short of the true suc
cess. I lie possibilities or success must
lie within every one; to suppose other
wise would lie to impugn our God. Hu
man character, the development of man
in nobility, has more possibilities of
real success than all this universe be
side. There are at least four essentials
to human success: Universality, right
eousness, iiermanenoy and expansive
ness. in the very constitution oi mis
universe, right must prevail in thu end.
Humanity can only be satisfied with
that which is continually expanding.

the mind as thought, bat la itself it is
thought with the additional charac
teristic of existence. If we examine the
lives of those who have been eminently
successful in any line of action, we find
the cause of their success to have been
due more to the right use of given op
portunities than to the oftseion of
better ones. The reason that the prin
clple of gravitation was not discovered
before the time of, Newton was not be
cause the facts necessary to its discovery
ma not exist until that time, we see
from an examination of our highest end
the fixed laws which govern its attain

Oration "Higher Education in Prac
tical Life," Frank W. Ilinman. Eduea
tion and educational systems mark the
progress of man and ro of civilization
Dy the education of man's mental and
moral nature he may better his condition
and the condition of those around him.
The educational system is everywhere
divided into two parts the lower and
higher the latter being the university.
Education embraces all human relations
and obligations, all the possibilites of
human action. Let simply one part of
man's mental nature be developed and it
will lie developed at the expense of all
others. The colleges have a great work
in the elective system, but what they
ill accomplish in it is problematical. It
is only through education that we can
hope to bring America and her govern
ment to the highest standard of civiliza
tion. The blunders of legislation for the
last twenty years have been caused by
the lack of men fitted to comprehend the
nature of the principles involved and the
method of dealing with them. ' Educa
tion alone recognizes the principles iimiii
which the stability and prosperity of a
free government depend.

Sunday morniog the ba-calaureate
sermon wa delivered by President J. F.
Elli, . D. Subject. "The Law of
Limitation." The text wa from
Matthew VII: 11 14 -Enter ye in by
the narrow gate: for wide is the gate,
and broad i the way, that leadeth to
destruction, aud many there be who go
in thereby. For narrow is the gate and
straitened the way, that leadeth unto
life, and few there be that find it. (He
vi-ed version.) The discourse was very
able and full of sound truth and logic.
The line of thought wa mainly directed
to the circumstance that in the very c
kence and nature of our lieing we are
surrounded by universal limitation,
which we cannot remove and to w hich
we must conform ourselves if ft attain
success. In the art and sciences, in the
learned professions, in the trades, in all
avenue of human intellect and pursuit,
we are rigidly bound by the invariable
law that indomitable jierscverance and
tireless energy arc the unerring price f
succes achieved. The law of gravita
tion i a principle which over-act In one
direction, yet only in accordance with it
can any of the function of our lieing or
of the universe about us be fulfilled.
These are but two of the many mani
festations of the law of limitation cited.
To live in accordance with tlii law i to
live a we are made to live with
reason enthroned, with conscience and
the body in willing subjection, in har
mony with one's self and God,

stances the inherent strength of the
liody suiiVe it to oppos the tendency
toward death. Many, however, hae
lost these forces to such extent that
there ia little or no help. In other
cases a little aid to the weakened Lungs

From the day of its organization and
exierlnieota! operations, the Ilillsboro
creamery has grown In favor among
farmers and hurried forward to com
mercial imtortance. Its daily output
of the finest butter ever placed ou the
Oregon market has grown from 40 to
180 pounds, and lately a cheese factory
Und boeu connected with the creamery,
which adds much to its value and im
portance. Although the cheese factory
has been in juration but a short time, a
little over 2000 pounds have been manu
factured. At present the cheese factory
ia "shut down" to increase the butter
capacity of the creamery. In addition
to large local demands for butter, the
company ia now filling an order for 1000
pounds of butter for shipment to Chios.
It is believed an Immense business can
be built up with that country, and that
the Ilillsboro creamery will soon be
compelled to enlarge and prepare lor
the demands of ao inexhaustible maiket.

There is no tree that Is so sure to grow

from a branch of a tree Muck into the

An article in a German concmorary,
which is a great authority, recommends
the cultivation of willow trees, not oi.ly
from au economical and industrial iinl
of view, but alo for hygienic purines.
They are especially in-efnl where the
drinking water (s takeu from fountains
or natural wells, and still more where
there are morasfes and meadows, for in
the vicinity of willow trees water is al
ways clean and pure. Iet those who
doubt this fact place a piece of willow
which has not yet begut to strike, into
a bottle of water, and place this w ithin
another bottle containing water only, in
a warm room, for eirzbt days. In the
first liottle will be found shoots and
rootlets in clear water, while the other
bottle will contain putrlfying water
