'Odell, Kast Hood River Valley, May
II! Last Saturday evening we attended
tliu commencement exercises at the I'ine
Grove school. The house was packed to
the. doors, and many persons present
could not obtain a position commanding
a view of the platform. On this account
anil by request, MissRiddell, the princi
pal, repeated the drill that was given on
the regular program.
The cxerciees began promptly and
were conducted without a hitch. The
program rendered is as follows:

There were eight graduates in the
eighth grade who were presented witn
diplomas by County Superintendent
Neff, and four graduates in the tenth
grade who received diplomas at the
hands of Hans Luge, chairman of the
board of directors. Then came a class
song followed by the class yells of the
eighth and tenth grades respectively as

The class colors were green and white,
the class flower being the Snow Kali
with which the platform and stands
were artistically decorated :
There class motto was:
"Tonight we launch,
Where than we anchorT"
It was both good sentiment and ap-
firopriatu, for standing upon the thres
lolil of what should prove long and use
ful lives if coming opportunities are Im
proved, forms a beautiful picture which
only life's harvest can unfold. Yet to
those of us who have passed through the
furnace and have been ground over by
the "Mills of Ood ;" who have been
Smith Block.
Who has had over forty years
experience in Iowa is opening
chastened by the storms of adversity
that has swept our pathway ; to such a
have steered their bark away from the
rocks and reefs of life's ocean and have
already cast anchor in the harbor of
contentment and peace, such mile
stones, such renditions are but review
lessons of their own past lives, and only
to such doe this picture unfold its lights
and shadows, its victories and its de
feats. To offer advice on such occasions is
almost a waste of words, but to en
courage is well, for life's lessons are
dealt out by the stern decree of fate on
the dial of Time's relentless clock that
keeps ticking, ticking until Toe's Itnvin
poem is ever with us.
The salutatory by Ulancbe Harbison
was full of gratitude and kind words
concerning the opportunlites that were
olfered to pupils of Pine drove.
The class prophet, Mr. Vannie ,
drew a pretty personal picture of the
future of the Pine drove Class of l!XKi,
while Mabel liobluson rounded up in
her valedictory a most charming pic
ture of the future of greater jlood
Kiver valloy, with its orchard homes,
its orystal streams and its sceuio t
fects all of which Is In Hue with on
work as the Odell writer for more than
two years.
There might be some excuse for ao-
onslnK promoters and real estate deal
ers for emitting hot air, but when the
school chll.Iren are Infused witn the
same thought and put it In such terse
terms as did Mabel Kobiusnn in her
valedictory. Thou we should be will
ing to concede that there is somethng
besides hot air concerning the future
of the valley of Hood Kiver.
MIbb Kiudeli and her able assistants
are to be congratulated upon the suc
cess of the school while the board of
directors are also worthy of commen
dation for the support given theHR

The Hist official act of Police Judge
Poole was to round up five or six of
the Odell sport who were funny last
Friday morning and give them two
days each; so under the di root ion of
Marshal Clark they were put to work
on the Odell water works. Six-inch
mains were laid down Main street and
water will be pumped to Win. Khrck's
place. The Judgo says they will get :l
days for tb" next offense.
This week is a busy one ut Odell.
A strawberry dunce ut the hull Wed

In the afternoon there will bo a
game of huso hull on the Ehrck place,
'1 hen at night we nre informed that
the (piartetto will hold forth ut the
church. The park at ttie Little White
store is now In readiness to receive
the public. Much time and some
money has been spent in beautifying
this delightful natural park. A nice
stream of water flows through it, and
we feel safe in saying solllcieiit in
ducements will be oifcrrd to justify
you for a days outing. See poster
along the rotidsido.
Last week William Ehrck finished
up a substantial piece of work con
necting with the ditch in the Little
White Store park. He laid a six-inch
I wooden pipe tarred and jointed diag
; anally across the street to the south
: nest corner of his place.und by means
j of a stand pipe throws it into a flume,
which in turn carries it to it ram,
short distunee.which forces it through
h pipe to his house. This will prove a
luxury, furnishing water for domestic
purposes and for irrigating the gar
den. li, G. Hoardman is piecing a water
ing trough at this stand pipe, which
will prove a public benefit.
