FRANK LESLIE'S POI-ULAR MONTHLY For July has a picturesque and well-Illustrated article, entitled "Into Oklahoma with the Boom- Riving much interesting Information about the settlement of the Promised Land, as well as of Hie adjoining Cherokee Strip. "The Samoa Cyclone" vividly depicts Hie great naval calami- ty of last March, which has been compared to the historic destruction of tlie Spanish Armada. Another notable contribution to this number is the account of the ascent of Mount Ararat, the Biblical "Noah's by the Russian Imperial Geographical Commission, whose notes and photographs were specially secured for Frank Leslie's 1'opular Monthly. "The- Dyna- mo" Is a timely popular science article. The biographical and natural history papers, sketch- es of travel, short stories, poems, etc., are num- erous and excellent. Jlerit Wins. We desire to say to our citizens, that for years we have been selling Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption, Dr. King's New Life rills. Bncklen's Arnica Salve and Electric Bitters, and have never handled remedies that sell as well, or that have given such universal satisfaction. We do not hesitate to guarantee them every time, and we stand reailv to refund the purchase price If satisfactory results do not follow their use. These remedies have won their great pop- ularity purely on their merits.

The fifth annual cotinncHcemcnt o the Albert Lea High ,x-liool was hel in the Presbyterian church J-'ridaj evening the inst. The exercise under 'Hie direction of Prof. W. J schniitz, superintendent, were wit nessed by an audience only limited ii size by the seating and standing-roon capacity of the building, and beside: scores of people went away who wen too late to be able even to squeeze in side the doors. Hereafter suchajan should be avoided which can easily bi done by occupying the opera house or better yet, the rink, and the publi will thank the board of directors if the1 will bear this in mind. That there was a audience ii- not singular, for the public has beei well advised of the character of tlu work in the High School during the past year or more, and knowing that i has excelled in interest, diligence ant thoroughness any that has ever before been accomplished during a like perioc of the school, it was natural that citi zens generally should have a keen de- sire to witness the exhibition, the proofs and culmination of the work. It was well understood that no student could secure a diploma through Prof Seliinitz unless he or she had complete- ly earned it and had. without any sham, fairly passed the examina- tions of the required course and hon- estly earned graduation honors. And there was no disappointment; the ex- hibition of scholarship met the highest expectations and proved as gratifying to the people who sat as interested judges, as it must have been satisfying to Prof. Schmitz and full of just cause of pride and exalted pleasure to the graduates. There were i'our graduates, Misses .losie liatehelder, Nettie Bessinger, Xellie Levens, and Odin Olson, three young ladies and one young gentle- man. They looked like'good scholars. You could see it in the refinement of their faces: in their thoughtful air and in the eyes, beaming with bright and confident intelligence. Moreover, they were all good looking and the girls ivere fair and sweet and pretty; in :ruth, it was a quartette of more than usual attractiveness. They were sur- rounded by stands of potted plants and profusion of flowers, and before them, on a little table, lay the coveted liplomas. The audience comprised the jest classes of the people of Albert the advocates, the promoters, the 'aithful friends and lovers of Amer- can education. In sentiment and in work they have illustrated the motto of the class: for Ourselves for their efforts in behalf of education ire for the benefit and blessing of their :hildren, for coming generations and America that is to be. Prayer was offered by Rev. ilr. Willey, pastor of the Methodist church, which was followed by a piano selec- ion. 77me Mazurka by Uodard, charm- ngly rendered by iliss Anna Hibbs. Miss Josie Batchelder then discussed Out of School." She said we should not study books alone but lature and especially human nature. Through the medium of good books ve can visit throughout the world. Education is chieily valuable as train- ng. Knowledge inust be combined vith a noble character to be a power ror good. Perseverance makes educa- :ion practical, and only through it can eminence be attained. Education hould be pursued with an object in Men who take in knowledge ind do not diffuse it have softening of he brain. The more independently he work the better. All may be great n their own sphere according to their ibilities and opportunities. All can- lot attain all they desire, but they can n a great measure be successful. Habit s of greater importance than is gener- illy understood, and "Schooling Out of School" with its unlimited opportuni- ies only gives full use and value to earning, and brings success to the loblest ambition. Odin Olson then arose, and in a clear, esonant voice, and calm, self-possessed nanner delivered his essay, ''Our Vork." He said that from the begin- ling man has a responsibility he can- lot ignore. Step by step he progress- s and gains by his rowning misery being the High ichool. But he soon learns from the nspiration of his teachers, and the in- reasing interest and importance of his vork, that it, after all, is of incalcuUv ile value and benelit and his apprecia- ion is soon won. and when the last day omes he has a feeling of regret and is trengthened to begin the battle of life, .lien, what sphere in life, what trade ir profession shall lie pursue? look iver the field, and consider them all. Ye know that well begun is half done. 3ut to win the best rewards we must- Lave determination and perseverance. That's one man''. A soul in the uni- a part of the great machine. The peaker thoughtfully discussed the phere of. the laboring man, and illus- rated his needs of education to meet he trials and temptations that beset lim. If we do our work faithfully and veil, ever keeping in mind a grand -urpose, it will be'appreeiated. The Presbyterian choir, composed of ilrs. Vandegrift, Miss Bessie Brown, M. Wilkinson, and Chas. A. Briggs, weetly rendered when Miss Vettie Bessinger advanced and deliv- red her essay entitled "It Might Have !een." Young persons in starting in ife are too apt to be thoughtless and ush on until too late to turn back. Obstacles are to be encountered in very path and only perseverance and nergy well overcome them. Xot only hose of brilliant genius will succeed, or steady, patient, diligent work often vins when laggard talent is a failure. Ml our lives arises the reflection of might have but this should be mt a background for the "will be." ihe gave notable instances in history howing how seeming grave errors had esulted in great benefit to nations and She ably discussed the lenefit of books and the best writers. There must be no loitering by the way- ide, and then there need be no sad "it might have been." The importance to 'Otith of grasping every opportunity to mprovethe intellect cannot be over- stimated. She made clear the idea of her theme and closed with an appropri- ate poetical quotation. "The Marble Lies Waiting" was the heme of Miss Nellie Levens, and she lelivered it without reference to her manuscript and with excellent elocu- tionary effect. She said if we work on our immortal minds we engrave some- thing that will last through eternity. i et we must have some clear and de- nnite plan. We must have beautiful designs. But that is not enough; we must have some clear and delinite plan e must have ability, energy, will and opportunity. Disadvantages can be overcome and turned to our advantage. A good sculptor with poor marble can do more than a poor sculptor with the best of marble. The grand ideal can not be attained; only as near like it a we can make it and then we may be satisfied because we know we llavt done the best of which we were capable. Perfect parts make perfec whole. If a misstroke is made the wholi plan is likely to be destroyed, but i may be remedied and the improvemen may be better than the original plan and prove nobler and better. An idea must be kept before us and mistakes must not lead to discouragements. Ii does not depend so much on materia as the will and spirit with which work. She closed with an excellent poem which was rendered with correc expression and grace. Miss Fannie Hazelton performed two selections on the piano when by request of Prof. Schmitz, Rev Abbott advanced and made the presentation address. He said: "lam happy to be able to say, -well done. You have been brambles and sloughs, climbed hills, rested in the shade of the valleys and struggled over the rough places and are now on the plateau of graduation. I heartily con- ;ratulate you for the success and honor have achieved, and now what? Jake the advice of your essays to your- selves and your lives will be successful and bright. As a suggestion or motto :o carry with you: Be unselfish. Your .ntellectual development, usefulness and enjoyment will depend on what you do for others, fn your busy lives you are apt to overlook the fact that in lelping others you gain the largest measure of will return with tenfold advantage to yourselves." He ;hen formally, in the name of the board of directors and of the superintendent, resented to each graduate a diploma. Prof. Schmitz only modestly said that 'the scholars were entitled to the credit :'or their success, and he wanted them ;o have but the evidence of his skill and that of Miss .Sutherland, his able issistant, in their training, was an tribute to his capacity and iiiccess as an educator. The effort of each graduate was accorded enthusiastic applause, and .rms full of baskets and bouquets of he loveliest flowers were bestowed by admiring friends. The ushers, who composed the class of '90, were Geo 1'etcrson, Alfred Bessesen, Oscar Hur- on, and Henry Tunell, Peter Olson mother member of the class not being present. The essays, it should be said, certain- y were of unusual ability and interest, iiid a synopsis does them but poor jus- ice. Unlike those of the College com- nencemeut, they were not too long, jut on the other hand, the young ladies, aused undoubtedly by pardonable ner- wisness. were too rapid in their de- ivery. They, however, deservedly won he warm encomiums of their hearers, nd they have a right to consider the vent as the proudest of their lives. The very pleasant occasion closed vith a benediction, and with hand- haking and congratulations to the lappy graduates. Mrs. Jenness Miller on Leglets. All my garments are made with legs xcept my outside drapery. I don't wn a petticoat, and have not owned ne in four years. I never expect to wn a petticoat again, and I pity every ne of you who do own them. Like on, when I have worn them I have tood on the corner and tried to unwind nyself; like you, I have stumbled in limbing up stairs; like you, I have ried to keep them out of the wet with- ut avail, and have caught cold. But do these things no longer. I go up tairs and walk on a windy day with- ut trouble. I have two legs. Why hould 1 not wear a two-legged gar- ment? I call these garments leglets. hunted the dictionary for a name for liem, but found none. One woman ad- ised me to call them panties, but I nally decided upon the name that I iiought -would describe them best. Another reason I chose that name was ecause I had no sympathy with false lodesty. In the outside garment I make one has no waist band, ut fits so that the weight is trans- erred regularly over the body. I do lot have to put on my bonnet before put on my dress.
