FRANK LESLIE'S POPULAR MONTHLY For July bas a picturesque and well-illustrated .article, entitled “Into Oklahoma with the Boomers,” giving much Interesting information about the settlement of the Promised Land, as well as if the adjoining Cherokee Strip. "The Samoa Cyclone” vividly depicts the great naval calami-f of List March, which has been compared to ie historic destruction of the Spanish Armada. Another notable contribution to this number Is the account of the ascent of Mount Ararat, the Biblical “Noah’s Mountain,” by the Russian inperial Geographical Commission, whose note* iud photographs were specially secured for Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly. "Tim Dynamo" is a timely popular science article. The biographical and natural history papers, sketches of travel, short stories, poems, etc., are numerous and excellent. Merit Wills. We desire to say to our citizens, that for years we have been Helling Dr. King’s New Discovery for Consumption, Dr. King’s New Life Pills, Bucklers Arnica Salve aud 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 ready to refund the purchase price lf satisfactory results do not follow their use. These remedies have won their great popularity purely on their merits. Wedge* Barlow's drug stores. of pride and graduates. There were four graduates. Misses Josie I late Ii elder, Nettie Bessinger, Nellie Levens, and Odin Olson, three young ladies and one young gentleman. They looked like good scholars. You could see it in the refinement of their faces; in their thoughtful air anil in the eyes, beaming with bright and confident intelligence. Moreover, they were all good lookiag and the girls were fair and sweet and pretty; in truth, it was a quartette of mon* than usual attractiveness. Tin y were surrounded by stands of {lotted plants and ii profusion of flowers, and before them, on a little table, lay the coveted diplomas. The audience comprised tile best classes of the people of Albert Lea, the advocates, Hie promoters, Hie faithful friends and lovers of American education. In sentiment and in work they have illustrated the motto of the class: “Not for Ourselves .Mont for their efforts in behalf of education are for the benefit and blessing of their children, for coming generations and Ymeriea that is to be. Prayer was offered by Rev. Mr Willey, pastor of the Methodist church, which was followed by a piano selection, 77me Mazurka by Godard, charm ingly rendered by Miss Anna Bibbs. Miss Josie Batchelder then discussed “Schooling < )ut of School," She said we should not study books alone but nature and especially human nature Through the medium of good books we can visit throughout the world Education is chietly valuable as train ing. Knowledge must be combined with a noble character to be a power Perseverance makes education practical, and only through it can eminence be attained. Education should be pursued with an object in view. Men who take in knowledge and do not diffuse it have softening of the brain. The more independently the work the better. All may be great in their own sphere according to their abilities and opportunities. All can not attain all they desire, but they can in a great measure be successful. Habit is of greater importance than is gener ally understood, and “Schooling Out of School” with its unlimited opportunities only gives full use and value to learning, and brings success to the noblest ambition. < blin (ilson then arose, and in a clear, resonant voice, and calm, self-possessed manner delivered his essay, “Our Work.” lie said that from tin* beginning man has a responsibility he cannot ignore. Step by step he progresses and gains by his progress his crowning misery being the High School. But he soon learns from the inspiration of his teachers, and the in creasing interest and importance of his work, that it, after all, is of incalcula hie value and benefit and his anprecia ti on is soon won, and when the last daj comes he has a feeling of regret and is strengthened to begin the battle of life. Then, what sphere in life, what trade or profession snail he pursue? We look over the field, and consider them all. We know that well begun is half dom But to win the best rewards we must have determination and perseverance. What’s one man ? A soul in the uni verse, a part of th** great machine. The speaker thoughtfully discussed the sphere of the laboring man, and illustrated his needs of education to meet the trials and temptations that beset him, I f we do our work faithfully and well, ever keeping iii mind a grand purpose, it will be appreciated. The Presbyterian choir, composed of Mrs. Vandegrift, Miss Bessie Brown, C. M. Wilkinson, and ('has. A. Briggs, sweetly rendered “Italia,” when Miss Nettie Bessinger advanced and delivered her essay entitled “It Might Have Been.” Young persons in starting in life are too apt to be thoughtless and rush on until too late to turn back. Obstacles are to be encountered in every path and only perseverance and energy well overcome them. Not oui those of brilliant genius will succ* for steady, patient, diligent work often wins when laggard talent is a failure. All our lives arises the reflection of “might have been,” but this should be but a background for the “will be.” She gave notable instances in history showing how seeming grave errors had resulted in great benefit to nations and mankind. She ably discussed the benefit of books and the best writers. There must be no loitering by the wayside, and then there need be no sad “it might have been.” The importance to youth of grasping every opportunity to improve the intellect cannot be overestimated. She made clear the idea of her theme and closed with an appropriate poetical quotation. “The Marble Lies Waiting” was the theme of Miss Nellie Le veils, and she delivered it without reference to her on are apt to overtook the fact that in helping others you gain the largest measure of interest it will return with tenfold advantage to yourselves.” Ile then formally, iii the name of the board of directors and of the suiwrintendent, presented to each graduate a diploma. Prof. Schmitz only modestly said that “th** scholars wen* entitled to the credit for their success, and hi* wanted them to have it,” but the evidence of his skill and that of Miss Sutherland, his able assistant, in their training, was an eloquent tribute to his capacity and success as an educator. The effort of each graduate was accorded enthusiastic applause, and arms full of baskets and bouquets of th** loveliest flowers were bestowed by admiring friends. The ushers, who composed the class of ’WI were (leo. Peterson, Alfred Bessesen, Oscar Burton, and Henry Tunell, Peter Olson, another member of the class not being present. I h«* essays, it should be said, certainly were of unusual ability and in Ii1 rest, and a synopsis does them but poor justice. I alike those of the College commencement, they were not too long, but on the other hand, the young ladies, caused undoubtedly bv pardonable nervousness, were too rapid in their delivery. They, however, deservedly won the warm encomiums of their hearers, and they have a right to consider the event as the proudest of their lives. The very pleasant occasion clos* with a benediction, and with hand shaking and congratulations to the happy graduates. -• Mrs. Jenness Miller on Leglets.

I call these garments leglets I hunted the dictionary for a name for them, but found none. One woman ad vised me to call them panties, but I finally decided upon the name that I thought would describe them best Another reason I chose that name was because I had no sympathy with false modesty.
