Contrary to rumors, D. V. Pepue
stated today that he Is the proprietor
and manager of the Tarbell house. Mr.

ducted the management for him, hence
the gossip regarding the matter.
The commencement exercises of the
Montrosa high school on Thursday
night were by all odds the chief attrac
tion of Montrose this week. The
armory, where the exercises were held,
presented a charming appearance. The
rear of the stage was elevated nnd
banked with evergreens, save In the
center where an aperture partly
screened by two gates, on which 1.SH5
was Inscribed, was made. The class
motto, "Step by Step." stood In bold
relief against the background. Its let
ters being composed of white roses.
After an overture, which wus rendered
In an excellent manner by the Montrose
orchestra, the Invocation by Rev. I. N.
Shlpman opened the evening's cere
monies. "Friendship" was the subject
of John E. Sweet, the salutatorlan. The
phenomenal work of Mr. Sweet as a
student caused the well-merited praise
bestowed upon him. Aura E. DeYVItt
gas-e an Interesting essay on Fashions.
"Sunshine and Shadows," an essay by
E. May Lane, contained a goodly por
tion of the former and depicted the
vast difference existing between the
two, yet showed the ease with which
shadows could be vanquished. The
honor essay, "The Gates Ajar," by
Laura W. Sprout, showed the fields in
which the coming woman can exem
plify her Ideas. Theodore T. Munger,
Jr., dealt on "Personal Power." His
oration was short, sensible and well
delivered. "Buddhism" was Intelli
gently dealt with by Arthur D. Cashin,
and evidenced a conclentlous study of
the subject. Eva J. Heekman's essay,
"A Spider's 'Web," was cleverly writ
ten. The class album was written by
Ethel M. Pope and Vietta Le' Couver.
Unfortunately Miss Pope, owing to her
illness, was unable to take part In the
exercises. Ella L. Oakley very kindly
read Miss Pope's lines. To an outsider
the album, which is really a,1 class
history, was quite ludricrous and what
must it have been to the twenty-two
younp; men and women, who appre
ciated every sentence of the prophecy
of the combined efforts of Miss Pope
and Miss Le Couver? The programme
was delightfully enhanced by a recita
tion by Nellie L. Conklin. Miss Con
klin's "The Shadow of a Song" reflect
ed unusual credit, and her elocution
was decidedly good. The class presen
tations by Bes3le M. Bisbce and Her
man If. Otto, were replete with merrl
men. The May scene, In whleh Jessie
M. Hastings, Alpha M. Howard and
Alice E. Foster posed as central figures,
was, Indeed, pretty. March, April, May,
June and August were In the cantata
respectively represented by Carrie F.
Mott, Vietta Le Couver, Bessie Perrlgo,
Ella L. Onkiey and Eva J. Heekman.
Professor B. E. James presented the
diplomas, nnd the valedictory of Lor
raine Hradshaw, which was a masterly
essny upon "Diamonds," nnd surely a
gem, completed the evening's pro
gramme. Rev. A. L. Benton pronounced
The class song by Clifton Hickok;
Tonight wo launch upon the tide,
The dark and stormy main to ride.
Our hearts are firm, our courage strong,
Our hopes arc set beyond life's throng.
We b!d farewell to teachers dear,
And givo to them our heartfelt cheer;
Our classmates, too, we wish success,
Long life and joy and happiness.
O. classmates! Soon we nil must part;
Thoujrh "step by stop" through ways so
We'll roach at last the golden shore
Where parting will be nevermore.
The Alumni of the Montrose high
