But diverse: Could we make her as a luan,
Sweet hove were slain:
Vet in the long years liker must they grow,
The man be more of Woman, she of man:
Hi- gain in sweetness anil in moral height.
She mental breadth, nor fail in chihlward care,
Nor lose the childlike in the larger mind;
Till nl last she set herself toman,
Kike perfect music unto noble words;
And so these twain, upon the skirls of Time
Sit side by side, full summed in all their powers,
Dispensing harvest, sowing the To-be
Self-reverent each and reverencing each,
Distinct in individualities;
Then springs the crowning race of human-kind;
May these things be!"
Our happy school days have passed like a fleeting dream, .but they
shall be treasured in our memories with the relies of our past glory. It is
with the greales love that we look back upon our four years of High School
life. How endearing the association! How ennobling the influences! llow
lofty the inspiration that, has always urged us on!
To-night we h ave the guiding and protecting arm of our beloved
Alma Mater to join that innumerable train, the followers of the fickle God
dess of Fortune. To her guidance and care we yield our lives, our hopes,
our trusts, our all. With awe-inspiring majesty, she holds out her hand to
us, and we, as under her magic spell, follow to our fate.
The duty, of saying farewell, in behalf of the class of 1!>04, lias de
volved upon me. Farewells though always sad must yet lie spoken. We bid
farewell to all our past associations. Farewell to our teachers, who have
ever ablv and willingly given us their timely aid. Farewell to our fellow
pupils, who, by their benign attitude towards us, have aided in winning our
sue. • ses. Farewell to our school the object of our devotion and the means
of our delight. And now farewell to each other.
As we join the ever swelling Munini, let it be the prime endeavor of
each one of the Class of I'.IOI fo become an honor and a success to the school
which graduates us to-night, and lo our town.
To all we sav farewell.

This figure is twenty inches high,

These trophies are to be given iu
