CORNER STONE LAYING.
On Sunday afternoon Grantsville
was greeted by an immense throng of
people who had come from far and
near to witness the laying of the cor-
ner stone on the foundation of the
| new Lutheran Church.
Many automobile loads from near-
by towns as well as carriages loaaed
with people were driven in soon after
dinner until 2:30, when the ceremonies
A temporary floor was placed on
| one corner of the foundation on which
| the church organ, the choir and the
visiting ministers were comfortably
The services were opened with a
selection by the choir and a prayer by
Rev. W. W. Morris. The choir then
ably rendered a beautiful anthem en-
titled, ‘‘Rest From Your Labors’’ fol-
lowed with a reading by Rev. E. S.
Hassler, of St. Paul. After another
selection by the choir, Rev. McCart-
ney, of Friedens, Pa. delivered an in-
spiring address based on Rev. 1:8 Af-
ter another hymn was sung, the cer-
emonies pertaining to the laying of
the corner stone were performed by
the paster, Rev. Young, after which
the audience was favored with a Male
Quartette; at this point a free will of-
fering was taken while the choir sang
a few familiar hyms..
Rev. Ed. Miller, of Springs, offered
the closing prayer and pronounced
The day was ideal with the excep-
tion of the hot sun, making it uncom-
fortabie for an open air meeting.
No doubt this service will be long
remembered by all who were present.
The beautiful marble corner stone
is the gift of Geo. Grose, the popular
tombstone man of Cumberland, Md.
While the Firemen had planned to
hold a short memorial service in the
cemetery immediately after the G. A.
R’s. had finished their work, their
laudable purpose had to be abandoned
through the inclemency of the weath-
er. The Firemen gathered in the
bandstand after the G. A. R. memor-
ial service was concluded when A. M.
Schaffner, editor of The Commercial,
delivered a short address. A detail
was sent to ;the cemetery to strew
the grave with flowers of the one
Fireman who had been visited by the
angel of death.
The members of The Modern Wood-
men of America, Knights of Pythias

a'symbolical conception of the cos-
mic can be imprisoned in books and
institutions of learning, owed appre-
ciation and slight understanding of it
are the attributes of culture, not cul-
ture itself. Education and these are,
respectively, means and end. But to
attain this poise, balance, faculty for
seeing beauty, you must bring some-
thing to education, for the benefits
derived from it are proportional to
the strength of character of the per-
son taught. Strong minds and char-
acters, like healthy bodies, are often
portions of an inheritance. All strong
characters must have been fundamen-
tally, so from the beginning, for no
education, whether physical, or men-
tal. can make complete reparation
for a defect in nature although much
may be done to remedy it. As gold
may be extracted from quartz and
diamonds taken from clay so may
strong minds and characters be built
on foundations that, seemingly, are
weak, and of material that, to all ap
pearances is worthless. All our fu-
ture experiences should serve to this
end, namely,—of erecting worthy
temples of Intellect and Character.
Each one of us must be able to say
‘‘I am a part of all that I have met,
yet all experience is an arch, where-
thru gleams that untravelled world,
whose margins fade, forever and for-
ever, when I move.”
In order that we may the more
wish to make our experiences part of
ourselves, we should choose those
walks of life whose environment ap-
peals to us and where we are the
more likely to meet experiences
worthy of becoming a portion of our
egos. The environment should be
congenial, for nothing so stimulates
or stupefies action as agreeable or
disagreeable surroundings. Besides
it is inevitable that, in course of time,
we also shall take the impress of that
which encircles, encloses us.
We, the Class of ’13, have finished
the first step towards our appren-
ticeships to our future tasks and now
must say farewell to the M. H. S.,
where we have studied four years,
and to the faculty who have started
us on our journey up the thorney
steeps of knowledge. More has been
learned from them personally than
from all our textbooks: For living
| knowledge must be imparted by a
gifted master, or mistress, who has a
| complete mastery of the subject and
who is able to breathe life into the
dry dust of facts. There is an in-
finite difference between the spoken
and the written work. A tone of the
voice, an expression of the counte-
nance are far more illuminatipg than
whole volumes of notes and commen-
taries. So whatever of advantage we
have gained in the four years spent
in the H. S. we owe almost entirely
to our helpful and inspiring teachers
who have instructed us, moulded us.
And we, the Class of ’13, assert with
all our hearts, that the names of Miss
Goldsmith, Miss Hanford, Miss Lau-
ver, Miss Anderson, Mr. Crunkleton,
and Prof. Kretchman should be in-
scribed in letters of gold on pedago-
gue’s roll of honor.
Tonight we are bidding farewell,
not only to these our friends and ad-
visers but also to each other. It
seems inconceivable that we, who
have been so intimately associated
for years, must separate and each
tread his separate path. And yet,
tonight marks our dissolution and
dispersion as a class. Tonight are
cut those bonds which held our class
together as am organization, but let
us hope that those which bind our
hearts have not been severed. We
are now leaving the shelter of those
four protecting walls of the school
and are going forth intc the world
either to stand upon our own feet or
to totter and finally fall. We have
however received the best the M. H.
S. affords, and now our success or
failure depends upon ourselves. But
whatever our fates, let us, at least,
endeavor to be what Confucius terms
educated—that is—‘‘earnest, encour-
aging and kind, earnest toward
friends, encouraging and kind with
our brothers.” Let us bear this in
mind, if, in the course of our strug-
gle, we chance among those who
have had fewer opportunities than
ourselves. Let us not bury our talents
for fear lest they be stolen. nor yet,
conscious of a self-suffciency, hold
aloof in contempt, but let us be en-
couraging and kind,” let us add our
mites to the great cause of general
ante anc, let us multiply our
talents until, as a reward, we exert a
| regal influence for the better, in hu-
| man hearts and enter upon a King-
i ship, or a Queenship in the best and
‘ truest sense of the word.
The banquet, held in the basement
of the Brethren church, after com-
mencement, was one of the most suc-
cessful affairs of the year and thor-
oughly enjoyed by the seventy-four
| present. Mr. Fred Rowe acted as
toastmaster. The toast by Dr. Truxal
was cleverly written in poetry and

applause. The following . menu was RESOLVED, ~

consult me free of charge, get my advice and if I find after examining
you that I cannot cure you, I will gladly tell you, and if your case is
curable, which in 90 per cent. with my new troatment get well, I will
