Mxvcumoii'i* Admirable Burk —%ea Teacher)*. Sea It on him and rroM|»crt* fur the 4 liming l ear. i Tin* first commencement exercises of I tile Lutheran High School were held in I tile building Of tin* Norwegian Lutheran church society last Thursday even-I ing, and with til** exception of the non-i attendance of Mrs. Rev. Nelson.caused by illness, tin* program given in tin* Sr anda RU last week was followed, l he address of Rev. Mr. Torgerson was able, eloquent and interesting, and Rev. Mr. Ylvisaker’s lecture was characteristically bright, thoughtful and entertaining. Prof. Swenson gave very interesting account of the work arid prospects of the school which was received with unanimous sentiments of approval; the musical feature was excellent; there was an audience that occupied Hie floor and gallery of tin church, and altogether the affair was full of interest and profit. A meeting of the board of trustees was held on Friday and a detailed financial rejiort was submitted which showed that the institution has been remarkably prosperous. Indeed, it is rare that a like institution has been able to make the first year such a show ing of financial success. During the year there were 15D students and tin income has paid all expenses, including salaries of teachers, piano, blackboards, and ail other expenses and there is a surplus of 8100 in the treasury. That this is due in a large measure to the abilities, skill and deservedly fine repu tation of Prof. Swenson is admitted by all. lie has been aided, it is true, very largely by the trustees and by other friends of the school, but Prof. Swenson lins been the soul of the school; hr has given it character and insured it the bright prospects it now enjoys. The teachers employed for next year are, Prof. Swenson, Miss Caroline Nygren, both reemployed, Prof. Henry Johnson of Sauk Center, a graduate of the State University, L. Larson of Chicago, professor of music, a graduate of the Lutheran College, Minneapolis, and one of the finest musicians in the Lutheran synod, fie is a superior comet player, and will organize a brass band, a string band and a choir in the institution and will prove a valuable acquisition. The trustees decided not to make an effort to erect a school building this year, but a committee consisting of Ii. II. Skaug and Hey. (I. II. Smeby was appointed to secure additional recitation rooms and rooms for boarding, and the Morin-Armstrong block may be secured for the purpose. Over 200 students are expected next year and it will be necessary to make provision for them. The Fall term will commence Sept. loth. As an indication of the benefit to the city of this school an estimate has been made of all expenditures on its account including tuition, rent, fuel, furniture, groceries and other supplies, and it foots up the handsome sum of $12,000. And this, it should be remembered, is for but ll4 months, the time the school has actually been iii session. This fact should bo significant to the people of Albert Lea and should lead them to a fuller and more lively sense of its benefits and importance. A catalogue of the school will be issued in a few weeks containing all information concerning it, copies of which will be extensively distributed. — -... -»*>■«■ Highest cash prices paid for wool, eggs, and salted and unsalted butter, at J.

Corella Abbott Piano Impromptu, op. u; (trace Perkin* Presentation of Memento*. Misses Dudley, Higgins, Irwin and Abbott certainly surprised their auditors w ith the learning, originality, sense and w it of their efforts. They displayed study, research, rare good Humor, and iii many resorts, real genius, and demonstrated the thoroughness of the work and training. The presentation of mementos was a serio-cconical feature that was entirely new in the Col lege and it “captured the house.” The musical selections were very creditable and evidenced the gifts of the performers as well as the faithful, skillful and painstaking efforts of Miss Driggs, their teacher. THE GRADUATION PROGRAM was rendered iii the assembly room, which was profusely decorated with national flags and emblems. The class motto, “Pro Veritate” was displayed over the platform. Seated thereon were President Abbott, the faculty, the trustees, and the students who were to participate in the exercises, charmingly arrayed in regulation white dresses. After an invocation and a pious selection by Misses Hortense Robbins and Dora Cresswell, Rev. D. J. Burrill of MinneaiKilis delivered the stated ad dress. He said:    “Be good, sweet maids, and let him w ho will be clever.” He impressed upon) them the importance of education, of its relining, ennobling results, yet argued that, after all, “the large place is the home the first and the l**st,’ and that it should be their highest ambition and their highest resolve and effort in acquiring an education to lit themselves for the homes which in the future they will bf called upon to till. “With graduation school bas only just begun your education is chiefly a sharpening of the wits.” The time will come, he said, when girls will till places of wives and mothers. They will then realize how great a world this is and how great a Held they must occupy. The familiar tale of the chest and the lost maiden is happening every day girls graduate and retire, are shut in at home, incapable of employing their education, wits or graces. Dirts should be useful and blessings at home and in society. Beauty is not enough. It is too true nowadays that boys are educated and girls are accomplished. Dirls should master anything that boys can do. There is a place in society for girls who appreciate their womanhood. They should enter active life and society to make men’s and women’s lives sweeter. purer and wiser every day. Women should be able to earn an honest livelihood—-be independent if need be. There is always a cry for help and there is always room for helpers. The address abounded in sparkling gems of thought, telling illustrations and perfect diction, and was appreciated as one of the finest intellectual feasts ever spread in Albert Lea. A piano solo from Bethoven was deliciously rendered by Miss Briggs and Miss Grade Perkins, when Miss Mary C. Farnsworth, the lirst graduate of Albert Lea College, was announced. With entire self possession and charming manner she advanced and delivered her esse v, “The Temple of English Liberty.’* It was a difficult topic, and it required complete and correct knowledge of English history to do it justice, but it was the unanimous judgment of her hearers that she discussed it with entire familiarity, with ability, thoughtfulness, eloquence and truth. She handled it in a manner which would have done credit to a much older head and a maturer scholar, and gained for herself and the college deserved honor as the lirst graduate. Miss Jennie Snyder skillfully rendered “The Last Hope” from Gott-sehalk, on the piano, and President Abbott, with impressive words, part of which were in Latin, presented Miss Farnsworth her diploma and with it conferred upon her in the name of th** trustees the degree of Bachelor of A i ts. Misses Underwood, Morgan and Bobbins sang “Farewell,” congratulatory remarks were made by Bey. Dr. Bihel-dafl'er, and the notable event closed with a benediction. ALBERT LEA COLLEGE.
