Standing room at the Baptist Church Friday night was at a Premium when the graduating exercises the grammar school were held. The Chancel was beautifully decorated with tall Palms and pot ted plants with White blossoms until its outlines were completely Biddi. Suspended in the Center the Arch was a Banner in the class colors Blue and White bearing the motto Quot labor conquers everything Quot b. H. G. S. 03. Preceded by the teachers . Herbert Poole miss Lillian Spratt miss Elizabeth Smith miss Marietta Nickerson and miss Ennie Grant the class Twenty seven led by their marshal Albert Farrell were ushered to their seats. Truly it was a goodly sight to see the eager expectant faces the Dainty gowns and neat suits and one was led to wish that the High school might graduate the same class with to break in its members. A Short prayer was offered by Rev. A. M. Mac Donald after which came the Salut Atory delivered by Harold Whitmore. In Well chosen words he extended a Welcome to the superintendent and members the school Board speaking them As progressive men not afraid to try new ideas. To teachers classmates and schoolmates words Welcome were also spoken his essay was entitled Quot one unwavering aim Quot and was full sound reason and delivered with clearness and Force. He said that the Sun s rays scattered did not accomplish much but concentrated could melt a Diamond. This world is full Donkey engines that whistle and puff but go nowhere. It is the men one idea that have made their Mark such As Napolean who burned a Hole wherever he went. The favorite actor is the one who plays the same part year after year. One drop water has not much effect but a continuous dropping will Wear away the largest Stone. Quot the history our class bows Quot was the title Samuel Hillson s essay we lbs was a very unique one. He Gav i an interesting sketch the Way in which silk is made saying that it took longer to make a Yard silk than a locomotive. China claims t in discovery the Piess and carefully guarded the secret a bit an american disguised As a celestial managed to steal a few the silk Worms and made the secret his own. He told a quaint legend the silk worm showing where the first one came from. It caused great disturbance in China he said when the Large order was received for the ribbon to make the bows which were worn by every member the class. Seth Emery had a very interesting essay entitled Quot choosing an me told a funny Little anecdote . Watts who had such a remarkable gift for rhyming. His father was much opposed to his son s exercising Bis gift and gave frequent floggings in punishment. One Day Youna Watts while being severely punished with tears streaming Over his face sex. Claimed Quot dear father do some pity take and 1 will no More verses he gave other examples people who had found their natural Bent Early in life. These were exceptions however. Many men did not find their True position until late in life As was the Way with a s. Grant. Hut whichever is the Case a smooth read never leads to Success. Under the title Quot the autobiography Green Frances Emery gave a very Bright Little essay which Savoured her personality in every line. Beginning with the formation the Earth she traced the origin and growth the Mountain As if a child the human race using the first person throughout. She told the trials and tribulations its Early Days How it was called Green be. Cause its freshness and Beauty and spoke the Lovely Lake at its foot giving a pretty Story How the name Quot Eagle Quot had been obtained. She also told the coming the French the first settlement at Somes sound and the growth bar Harbor in which we Are All so interested. The history and prophecy were Given by Carl Cleaves who treated both subjects in a very characteristic manner. He said when first Given the subject which was soon destined to be in everyone s ear it was a mystery How he could find time to develop it wha with foot Ball base Ball Basket Ball school gymnasium practice choir rehearsal Etc. But he finally found a Way put the Dif Mculty and then presented the class annals in a very entertaining Way. In the prophecy he said he had received much help from Madame Frances a noted Fortune Teller who boarded at his Home last summer. She left him a magic Globe which he proceeded to uncover. Upon polishing the top it glowed with a Bright Light and upon ii were the pictures his climates in their future life. The class hits were All remarkably Good and caused much laughter and applause. Quot the truly great Man Quot was the a subject miss Marjorie Alley s essay. She said that while every Young citizen could not. Be president the United states he could at least be a Man. She mentioned the names several men who had made their Mark calling attention to the Quali theft to at had made them great. Great men and women she said Are to be found in every cd Unity and in the daily walks life As Well As connected with the great epochs the world s history. Some Good rules for Young men to follow were Given with the advice that if they did their duty they would do something worthy being remembered. Edward Linscott had prepared a very interesting speech upon the subject Quot self control Quot he spoke it As one the chief distinctive Marks Between Man and beast. There is need constant watchfulness because loss self Conti is caused by a very Small thing. Almost All great men have possessed the Power self control to a marked decree. He also spoke various ways in which self control May be exercised. Miss Rosa Richards was valedictorian and in addition had an essay upon Quot life s the graduation from the intermediate school was the first Milestone in the history her class and now their evea were fixed the Milestone at the end the High school. The years ahead had no terrors for them because the far me who has his ground Well tilled his crop Well planted and watered does not fear for the Harvest. She spoke several people whose lives bad become mile stones from their courage and the Good they had done. Among them were Clara Barton and Frances Willard whose lives she gave interesting sketches. In closing she addressed superintendent Heald said Farewell to teachers and schoolmates and said to her classmates that she hoped they would always be True to their colors. The music during the evening was Gre try enjoyed and consisted three selections by a quartet composed messes. Cleaves Mehan Kidder and Whitmore Aad a piano duet by miss Guptill and . Rumsey. The diplomas were presented by . Heald superintendent schools. Or. Heald said that the intrinsic value the diplomas was Little if thrown into to waste Basket they represented Only a few cents but it was what they represented that gave them value. In that they Are like the Star and the Garter the decorations for which knights have fought and bled. Standing As the class did connected with the past by memory with the ,.iiy Hope and expectation he wished to offer them some advice. Have respect for any kind labor strive for insight rather than information not for the fact but for the meaning the fact. Enclosing he gave his congratulations upon the graduation. And Well they deserved congratulation both teachers and members the class.
