Patrons and Friends of the Hood
River Public School: As a represent
ative of the class of 191)3, of the gram
mar school, district No. 3, I extend to
you a most cordial and hearty wel
come. I am sure the class is very
much pleased to see that so many are
enough interested In our school and
school work, the teachers and our class,
as to be present on this occasion.
When we entered upon our school
work, about eight years ago, we were
first tatmhi our A, B, C's, how to form
and use them, how to spell, add and
s out rai t ; and then came multiplication,
division, long division and fractions,
and our first work In grammar. But
it seemed then that the teachers could
not impress upon our minds the great
value these things would be in the
higher grades of school. Then was
the time we saw no enjoyment In
school work, anrl our greatest ambition
was to see if there wasn't some way to
gel out of studying.
We thought the teachers seemed aw
ful cross; and sometimes we would not
study as we should, or tried some way
to get out of work; then the teachers
would tell us what an Interest they
took in our work, and how anxious
they weie for us to get along well, and
ki tliul ntir school ilavs would I our
happiest. But we could not see it that
way; we thought they were doing ail
iliev mold aimliist us. But, as we
stepped higher and higher, we saw
what thev had said was true, aud I
suppose there is plenty of time yet to
niui tins out.
Thp state course of study of Oregon
lavs down a lurite amount of work
based uiwm a school term of nine or
ten mouths. Hut as Hood Kiverschonl
has only eight months lo accomplish
this work it makes it bard on lis. and I
am sure it makes it very hard on the
' teachers, for at the beginning of the
term, or rather all during Hie term un
til little w hile before examinations.
we are not ant to studv as hard as we
should. We seem to think there is
pleiitvot time vet. and no one seems
o know or see as the teacher d-Mhat
Band Sawed Lumber, Red Cedar Shingles,
Flooring, Ceiling, Rustic, Ship Lap, Pickets,
Laths, etc., etc.
the day is coming, and coming fast,
when we are to be "measured up," to
see if we did study as we should. Our
lessons sometimes seem hard, or we
don't feel like studying. The teacher
keeps pressing us just the same. He
seems the only one who sees that day
which is not very far away. But 1
think our year's work has been very
profitable, taking into consideration
the time iu which we had to do it.
Our class motto is "Onward and Up
ward." It is, I believe, the first motto
that any member of our class has had.
And we hope that when we are old we
may be able to look back over our lives
and see that we have kept our first
motto true. It is a good motto to carry
through life. It may seem hard some
times to keep up to it, but if we stay
close by it we will succeed.
We may have often been negligent
and apparently unkind to our teacher
during the year, and have forced many
trials upon him which he has borne
with great kindness and patience, but
I am sure we meant no barm and have
the highest regard for him.
Our mistakes are apparent. Kindly
bear with us, as our year's work has
been crowded Into eight months, and
besides, like yourselves, we are not
above making mistakes. Again I say,
dear friends, that we renew our words
of welcome, and thank you for your
presence here tonight.
Friends and schoolmates: The time
has arrived for us to separate, but be
fore doing so possibly a few words from
one chosen by the graduating class to
speak for them, as also for the school,
may not be amiss. To the gentlemen
of the school board we wish to extend
our thanks for your untiring efforts in
our behalf, for the kindly encourage
ment you have givenand the faithful and
efficient teachers provided to give us in
struction. We appreciate and are gratelui
for all the kindly considerations had at
vourhands. To our teachers we desire' to
extend our tiianks in a particular man
ner for their earnest and kindly help at
all times. Doubtless at many times the
task has been wearying and burdensome,
and your patience sorely tried, but
through all you have shown by your
actions and kindly words that you had
our welfare at heart, and for this also
we thank von. We believe at this time
that mil but the friendliest feeling and
best wishes are felt by every one of
the school for each of our instructors,
and we are sure that no ill feeling is har
bored by teacher or scholar.
To our parents and the patrons of the
school we woulJ say that we appreciate
very much the interest you have shown
in the school ; by your visits to the school ;
by your words ot cheer ana encourage
ment and by your attendance at the en
tertainments that have been given for
the benefit of the school. The result of
such consideration and help from you
has done much toward making the term
just closed the successful one it has been.
The Dooks, too, wiai nave own proviuwi
through these entertainments will like
wise be of benefit and pleasure to those
who will follow in the school during the
coming terms.
To the pupils that follow as we would
offer a word of encouragement. In the
years Jthat are to come you will doubt'
less find frequent occasions when diffi
culties appear that seem almost (insur
mountable, but earnest effort and close
application is bound to win, and to the
one mho says: "Never give op," there
is no such word as fail. Place yonr
standard high.let "On ward and upward
be your motto, and the years as tbev
com to you will be found replete with
sue ceM. and the goal to which too as
pire will surely bp reached. The places
we now have attained will soon be yours.
So study and so work that when you shall
have come to the closing hours of your
public school days you can look back
and feel that your best efforts have beeu
given and your success honorably won.
And now, just one word and we have
done The pleasant days we have
spent together are gone forever ; our
school term is past and the future is a
closed book to us all. Let our every ac
tion be such as we shall be glad to see
unfold as Ihs new pages are opened in
the time to come by those who shall fol
low us. Live each day so that some
other life than ours may be brighter,
that pleasure and profit may follow all
those with whom we come in contact,
and that the pleasures we have shared,
in the past be not marred by anything
that may appear in the future. And
now, as we say farewell, let us repeat
our thankfulness and gratitude to all,
and extend our best wishes for the fu
ture success and welfare of every one.
Farewell. '

Cask Business Brings Success.
No one appears better satisfied with
business conditions in Hood River than
Frank A. Cram, proprietor of the Up-to-date
dry goods ana clothing emporium
on Oak street. Mr. Cram feels jubilant,
and well he may. During the past 14
months his store stock has turned over
five times. This is a record which
speaks much for Mr. Cram as a suc
cessful business man, while at the same
time it eoes to show the prosperous con
dition of the Hoc4 River people. Mr.
Cram reports that last Saturday his re
ceipts exceeded those for July 3d last
year. And what is better yet, the sales
on the Saturday before Easter exceeded
by 1 100 the business done on the day
preceding 4th of July last. During the
month of March last business was 2
timet better than the same month last
year, while during February Mr. Cram
did three times as much business as at
the same time 12 months ago. And all
this business is strictly caeh.
8. Uillfillan of Seattle will be here
May 1, to take charge of the shoe de
partment in cYam's ttore. Mr. Cram
will make a specialty of shoes after this.
and with a competent salesman in the

Hood River people with the best to be
had 4n the shoe line. An attractive
feata . about this store It the up-to-
dateness of everything. Old stock is
not allowed to accumulate, being sold
out at the lowest kind of price. Mr.
Cram attributes his success to the fact
that he keeps only good, reliable stock
and sells his goods at popular prices.
