The Baccalaureate Sermon.

laureate sermon to the graduating
class of the high school. The main
theme of the address was the value'lrnnr'i,,

brief military training in the gener
al curriculum, and suggested that
the plan be tried in Ilcnd.

Drilling has been resumed on the

the Madras Oil & Gas Cotapaay on
the west slope of Grizzly, and the
officers of the company say they
hope to continue work now without
further interruption until they
strike a gusher. The Madras Pio
neer reports that there have been
several annoying interruptions in
the work, which has, on that ac
count, made slow progress during
the last few months. At a depth
of 175 feet the work was suspended
for some time, as it was found nec
essary to secure heavier machinery.
With the arrival of the new ma

was again discontinued in a short
time. Drilling has been resumed

The drillers are having some
trouble with water, which rises so
rapidly in the hole as to make it
difficult to "muck out." It is said
that overnight the water raised 275
feet in the hole, which will give
some idea of the amount of water
they have to handle. In order to
obviate this difficulty it has been
found necessary to sink the casing
with the drill. The work fa now in
