The minister took as his second verse of the second of Second Timothy: “Stud} thyself approved unto God, man that needeth not ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth " He applied this to tim lives of the young people just entering upon the stern realities of life and exhorted them to live up to its teachings. After mentioning the great value of an education a v  a foundation * for a successful life, calling attention to the tact that in the publication of Who’s Who in America, eighty per centi of the persons given mention are college graduates and sixty-five per cent of the remainder are at least graduates of high schools, he defined education as a training to live and love. It is a matter of continual progress and service and no one can rest on laurels already won.  Mf. Rousseau severely crit vised the tendency of the day to light reading and entertainment to the exclusion of the classics and works of thought. This is discouraging to mull of genius who find them-selves with no one to heat th<irj message.    ’  Education and progress must b * to unselfish work for the bet* men! of the race. Alexander.

The sermon was preceded by eral musical numbers, Miss Lee playing the processional, l’astors of various city churches were on the platform and took part in the service. The Treble Clef club gave a splendid rendition.  Although the weather was very threatening, the normal auditorium was filled to its capacity.  This morning the graduating ex ercises were held. The feature of this occasion was an address by Senator Luther Harrison. The speaker dealt largely with the phases of the struggle for liberty in Ame! ira aud its application to present day conditions. Too few. he said, appreciate the blessings of freedom that Americans enjoy, although these privileges were, purchased at great coat  of blood.  He divided the struggle into three phases, that for religious liberty, political liberty and national integrity. The first of these begall with the landing of the Mayflower, the second with the Revolution and the third with the civil war which settled the matter of .supremacy of the national government which question began with the treaty of 17Sd when Ingland recognized the colonies as  <Continued on "age Bight.)
