We’ve been open in McMinnville just 60 days. ’Tis
useless to tell you we have done a Large Business. (You all
know that.) It has gone far ahead of our expectations. It
shows us that giving Good, Honest values ts appreciated by
the people of Yamhill County, and induces us to work still
harder for your interest. We are making great preparation
for the Fall, and will show a Stock well worthy of your at­
tention. In the meantime we are going to give you some
splendid values through the month of J une, and unload
every dollar’s worth of Spring and Summer goods. You will
find something new to interest you. If you call every day

in the week we’re always glad to see you.
Come in often.

medals well earned. It described Ethel
Harris as a writer, Mabel Manning as
witty, Elsie Hobbs as musical, Grace
Hodge as a deep thinker, Bessie Houck
as studious and true, Mattie Patty as so­
ber, thoughtful and prudent, Ambia
Daniels as tbe Iowa girl who argues well
and holds out, Mollie Patty and Maud
Hobbs as singers and jolly, Helen Weed
and Mabel Neal as possessing application
to books, Glen Henderson as a geologist,
Paul Cooper as missed but proudly stand­
ing by tbe stars and stripes. It contained
a tribute to the teachers and asked all
friends to lend a helping hand.
Helen E. Weed’s subject was “Read­
ing.” Readiug should be selected
with regard to what and how. Some
books are to he tasted, some swallowed
and some chewed and digested. The
public ys only a grown up child—all want
to be told a story. Indiscriminate read­
ing is demoralizing and destroys tbe taste
for that more helpful, and amusement
should not be the only object in reading.
Miss Weed got tbe biggest and grandest
bouquet of the eveuiug as she sat down.
She was also winner of the college schol­
arship by a grade of 93^. Eberhard was
second, grading 90J^, and winning a gold
medal, and Misses Maud Hobbs and
Grace Hodge wore close after him.
Mr. Griesen gave a violin solo, with
that soulfulnees so characteristic of tbe
Germans. A red rose was thrown at
him at the close of his playing.
"Fin the “Value of Time” Maud Hobbs
said it was more than money—it is life.
Only the sluggard lacks time to accom­
plish great works, and he does not live
in the true seuse of the word.
“Patriotism” was Mabel Neal’s subject.
True patriotism characterizes all good
citizens, and tbeir country’s history
should be tbeir admiration. Men love
tbeir homes for the same reasou that a
wild animal loves his lair. The Spartans
conquered or died. Tbe pages of history
are filled with such examples. America
brought forth a Dew patriotism in Wash­
ington, who became its great apostle
Grant stood for a later era. Our inheri­
tance is a valuable one, and let us not al­
low this fair land to lie other than our
forefathers intended it to be.
On the subject of politeness Grace
Hodge thought it was becoming one of
the lost arts. Chesterfield said: "Oil
your mind and manners for the
world.” To be of value good manners
must be from the heart. Tbe essence of
courtesy consists in thinking of others
instead of self.
Ethel Harris prophesied for her class­
mates as follows: Grace Hodge became a
mathematician ; Glen Henderson gained
wealth in business; Elsie Hobbs toured
France and Italy; Colon Eberhard be­
came an editor; likewise Bessie Houck;
Ambia Daniels got married and made
home her heart’s jewel; Mabel Manning
became a missionary in Terra del Fuego;
Helen Weed became a lecturer on
woman’s rights; Mabel Neal succeeded
Miss Willard in the W. C. T. U.; Maud
Hobbs and Mollie Patty attained emi­
nence in music; Mattie Patty became
the reigning belle of New York; Paul
Cooper, a soldier brave and true, re­
turned home wearing a colonel’s uni­
form. The prophecy was greeted with
loud applause.
The class song was well sung. The
place of the valedictory was made a touch­
ing memory of Paul B. Cooper. His va­
cant chair, in the center, draped in the
national colors, was reverently faced by
the class while the pianist played the
“Star Spangled Banner.” Each gradu
ate brought a bouquet for the absen1
classmate.
Prof. J. H. Ackerman gave an address
to the class, good enough in its makeup,
but entirely too long in view of the hour,
a very common error on such occasions.
J. P. Irvine, as chairman of the school
board, fairly excelled himself in present­
ing the diplomas, his friends not remem­
bering that he ever did so well before.
Prof. Reynolds announced the award of
the prizes, and Judge Magers represent­
ed the college in tbe matter of annually
offering scholarships.
The display of flowers was unusually
beautiful, the arrangement into unique
designs being more general this year
than ever before.
Under the sublime truism, “He has
failed who has not striven,” the faithful
students of the high school reached the
first important goal in acquiring their
education, last Wednesday evening, June
1st, and environed by floral offerings as
tine as the world produces, each appeared
and publicly presented a well prepared
paper.
The class marched to their places on
tbe stage to the strains of music rendered
by Miss Josie Gortner, pianist of the
evening.
Principal Reynolds offered a Ary sen­
sible and earnest invocation for divine
favor. Miss Annie Nichol pleased the
audience with a song.
There were three especially commend­
able features : The program was followed
without announcement; tbe essays were
all short; the exercises began on time.
Bessie L. Houck was salutatorian, and
her subject was “Rely on Thyself.” She
extended a hearty welcome on behalf of
the class, describing the exercises as “old
yet ever new.” Emerson had said “Trust
thyself and accept the place divine prov­
idence has found for you.” Her advice
was to build aud live from within. Christ
and Columbus were misunderstood, and
to be great is to be misunderstood. She
urged the class to aim high, and even if
disappointed, it should not be considered
a failure. There is glory undimmed at
at the top,
Glen Henderson treated of "Physiog­
raphy” and frankly admitted be couldn’t
tell all there was on tbe subject. He
gave an outline of the effects of the forces
of nature on tbe earth, and in it all saw
the band of tbe master sculptor.
Mabel M. Manning spoke of will power
and strength. The power of will is the
central power of man. All great men
such as Julius Ciesar and llannibal,
were remarkable for tbeir energy of will.
Such power is necessary now more than
ever, in tbe contests for power and place.
No human being who halts can be great.
Ciesar in crossing tbe Rubicon and
Washington in crossing the Delaware
had fixed their gaze far beyond immedi­
ate obstacles, and had the energy of will
to reach tbe end attained. Some men
have a normal will and no energy, and
some have ull will and no judgment.
The will is the root, knowledge tbe
stem and feeling tbe fruit.
The Misses Patty and Hobbs sang
‘‘The Wreck of the Maine,” which was
highly appreciated.
“Live Within yonr Means,” was the
sensible subject treated by Mattie V.
Patty. It did not mean that a man should
not go in debt; he lives beyond his
means who Bpends more than he makes;
who borrows upon the strength of what
he expects to make next week, month
or year. The love of dress should be
controlled by an honest judgment. “It
is the eyes of others that cost us so
much.” He who borrows that which he
cannot repay is a dishonest man. The
habit of extravagance increases with age,
like other bad habits. To such a man
"there will come a time some day” when
every rap at the door has a terror, lest
some unpaid bill is to be presented.
Elsie C. Hobbs spoke on the “Beauty
of Nature.” Art is an imitation, and the
best art is nearest to nature. Her de­
scription of Oregon’s grand scenery
showed her to be a true native of our
grand state with a just appreciation of
its beauties. Like Beecher, she thought
flowers the sweetest things God forgot to
put a soul into. The greatness of nature
reveals the insignificance of man and the !
power and love of the creator.
Mollie I. Patty spoke on “True Felic­
ity.” It was to dwell above hate. Man­
kind will only advance to its ultimate
development of perfection in proportion
’as it raises above strife and passion and
dwells iu the serene air of harmonies.
We make our felicity, not by ambitious
desire for fame, but by obeying the com­
mandment that we love one another.
This was one of the best papers of the
evening, in its noble advice against
selfishness and overweening ambition,

A GOOD ENTERTAINMENT.
The
Enterprise of Dlelrlet S tor
Public Improvement.
The basket social and entertainment
at No. 8 school house Saturday evening
was largely attended by an orderly and
appreciative audience from North Yam­
hill, McMinnville and surrounding coun­
try. A one act farce by the Yamhill dra­
matic club was carried oil’ in a creditable
manner, by the young people of the
club. Miss Versa Keene excelled her­
self as “Tbe widderfrom Grass Holler.”
The entire class did splendidly for ama­
teurs, and if their names were known,
each should have special mention.
“Hick’ry Farm” was next presented
by the following cast:
Zeke Fortune................ J esse H endbsson
Uriah Skinner..................... Bert Loban
Gilbert Darkw ood................ Harry- Sharp
Larry McKeegan ................ Alva Gilliam
Jack Nelson.
. Hugh Shelly
Detective Rankin
........ Wm.Wess
Constable........................... Ford Wheeler
Jessie Fortune ........ Miss Minnie Sitton
Mrs. Priscilla Dodge.............. Mrs Wess
Jesse Henderson as Zeke Fortune
played like a professional, and any one
who saw him as Billy in “The Deacon,”
would have been surprised at tbe change.
Bert Loban as Skinner, the unlucky
farmer and tool of tbe villian, carried out
bis part with credit to himself.
Gilbert Darkwood, tbe villain, by Har­
ry Sharp was acted true to nature and
showed ability few can have.
Larry McKeegan, “the happy go lucky
Irishman from the twelfth ward," was
tbe feature of the evening and caused
many a laugh. His playing places Mr.
Gilliam at the head of amateur Irish
comedy.
Jack Nelson, the unhappy lover of Jes­
sie Fortune, was played well by Hugh
Shelly, and won for him great praise.
Detective Rankin, by Mr. Wess, was
short but to the point.
Ferd Wbeeler, as constable, had noth­
ing to say, but be looked fine iu bis
make-up.
Miss Minnie Sitton as Jessie was a very
heavy part and was carried out with cred­
it, as it was her first attempt at amateur
work.
Priscilla, the widder, by Mrs. Wess,
was performed in a creditable manner
and showed how a woman could catch a
husband. She bad had three, and was
good for three more.
The rehearsal of the play was given
plenty of time and attention under tbe
direction of Grant Eberle, whose well-
known ability is rarely excelled outside
of the ranks of the profession. The com­
bined efforts of the manager and partici­
pants ensured a most successful enter­
tainment, and the small admission
charged netted the district over $17,
which is to be ex|>ended in repainting
the school house.
Annual Commencement Concert.
Saturday, June 11th, Edward B. Fleck,
pianist, late of Leipsic, Germany, will
give a concert at the college hall. Fol­
lowing are a few of Mr. Fleck’s press
notices;
“In the Ballade of Chopin Mr. Fleck
displayed a faultless technique, a highly
dramatic interpretation.”—Staats Zei­
tung.
“Mr. Fleck is a sterling artist.”— New
York MorniDg Journal.
"The piano numbers of Mr. Fleck show
him to be an artist of exceptionally high
ability.”—New York Herald.
“Herr Fleck as an artist is probably
without an equal in Oregon.”—Capital
Journal, Salem.
Mr P. Ketcham of Pike City, Cal.,
says: "During my brother’s late sickness
from sciatic rheumatism, Chamberlain’s
Pain Balm was the only remedy that
gave him any relief.” Many others have
testified to the prompt relief from pain
which this liniment affords. For sale by
