The play given by.the High School
Tuesday night of last week was first
class in every respect. There was
a large crowd io attendanoe and every
one seemed to enjoy the performance.
There were three Aunt Janes taking
nart in the performance but I guess
we will have to give Aunt Jane, the
high kicker, the medal, as she was
certainly there with the goods. - We
must, give credit where credit is due,
and we wish to give th Professor and
hia students credit for the able way
in which the play was presented.
The Grammar Department held
their graduation exeioisea Wednesday

program was rendered, and a pleasant
evening was well spent by all prusent.
There was ten graduates, and they
all wore smiles. Prof. Warren's
orchestra was in attendance and they
played us some fine selections. Harry
is there with the goods when it comes
to making music. Give him a chance
and he will make a musician out of
any of yon who feel so inclined.
The Twlfth grade Commencement
exercises were held Thursday night,
May 16th. A large crowd was in
attendance and some fine orations
were preeened by the different mem
bers of the class. Prof. JVarren was
there with hia able army of musicians,
and gave some selections that were
well worth while. .Mr. E. L. Ped
berg presented the diplomas, as Mr.
KnufmBn was somewhat under the
weather and unable to attend. We
wish all the -graduates every success
as each one branches out in his or
her own wora.
IONE SCHOOL BANQUET.
- The Commencement Exercises ot
the lone Schools closed on Friday eve
ning of last week with a monster ban
quet to which everyone in the district,
and even from the surrounding coun
try, had been invited. Mrs. Willard
Blake was the chiarman of the general
committee, of arrangements; Mrs.
Chick chairman of the committee on
solicitation; and Mrs. 0. J. Perning
ton chairman of the committee on
tables and decorations. The splendid
ability of these ladies, and the able
manner in which they were assisted
by the committees, aud othoi ladies
of he town was plainly in evidence by
the admirable manner in which the
banquet was conducted. That was
( ert n'nly some ft e '. About 450 plates
were laid at tables groaning under
I hi load cf tempting edibles of such
variety and quattity as to satisfy the
most exacting epicure oi the most
voracious gourmand. And the crowd
that came was fully up to expectations
it being estimated at 5l0 persons.
The graduates of both the 8th and
12th grades were seated at a table
tastily decorated with their respective
class colors, and the rapidity with
which the fond disappeared from the
table proved that th gastronomical
side of ilfe had also received some
training. On the whole it was the
most successful function aud on the
largest scale of any ever attempted in
lone. It Involved lots of wora to
spread such a feast in Walker's big
rink, but it was the sight of a life
time to see those splendidly arranged
tables: a feast royal in the fullest
sense of the word. The applause ac
corded the women on the evening of
the spread was well merited, but
mention should also be made of the
help rendeied by the High School
boys in prepaiing the rink for the
event and in clearing away the remains
after it was all over. Surely the
work of preparation wna well worth
while, and since this first attempt was
suHi an unqualified success why not
make this an annual event here in
lone. Such occasions as this, where
all the community can meet on a com
mon ground, are all too few and far
between. Let's appreciate a gcod
thing when wa have seen (and tasted)
it and declare for more such get-together
banquets. We must nut forget
one of the main spokes in the wheel
of this happy event. Professor
Kaufman who has been with us for
the past two years, shouldered his part
of the load and did it good naturedly
and willingly. We wish him every
success in his new field of labor atj

Arc you interested in getting
hold of land for a home?
Do you want a place suited
to diversified farming?
We have bargains to offer
in the three tracts listed
Consists of 1100 acres, divided into
250 acres of wheat land, 30 acres now
set to alfalfa, with 20 acres more that can
be put in, and all under good ditch; 800
acres grass land. This is an ideal dairy
and heg ranch, lying on the creek, with
plenty of water the year around. One of
Eastern Oregon's Best Propositions.
$14 per acre; $8000 cash; good
terms on balance.

crops of alfalfa are grown each year and
but one irrigation is required; it is sub
irrigated by from 15 to 20 springs on the
place. There is a
choice bearing fruit trees; 9-room resi
