the commencement exercises last night.
The students and some of the teachers
had been busy all day preparing the
stage and the result was an honor to
their zeal and good taste. Beautiful
flowers and feathery ferns and the
delicate tracery of bamboo had been
skillfully arranged until the stage

greenery and the class motto, "Per

so very far after, either. The lines fell

Northern Presbyterian church. In ses

report on golf, Saturday:

"Nine-tenths of those who enter pris

Recommendations of the committee
provide that the assembly reiterate its
'strong and emphatic disapproval of
all secular use of the Sabbath, all
games and sports In civic life, as also
in the army and navy, all unnecessary
traveling and all excursions, and urge
upon all employers 6t labor and cap captains

prosperity of both capital and labor."
The committee turns the spot light on
Washington, severely scoring the cap capital
ital capital for "continued and increasing
laxity In Sabbath observance." The
Sunday newspaper is condemned.
The Northern Methodists, thru their
general conference at Minneapolis, are
quite as strict. Jby a vote of 446 to
369, the conference voted to leave un unchanged,
changed, unchanged, the church discipline's para paragraph
graph paragraph 260, which prohibits dancing,

So it seems that poor humanity must
take its choice between spending a
monotonous existence here and going
to hell hereafter.

Should you ask me. whence this his history?
tory? history?
Whence this legend and tradition.
With its -reading- and its Grammar.
With its Latin. Trig, and English.
Its Arithmetic and Physics,
Its Geometry and Spelling.
I should answer.
I should tell you.
"In the year 1S00
There arose a glorious class.
Whose events through many years
Are here written down for you.
Many fortunes and misfortunes.
Have beset us everwhere.
Many winters have we labored.
Many summers have we rested.
And through much trial and effort.
We have reached our goal at last.
Ye who love the haunts of Learning,
Love the sunshine of, the campus.
Love the shadow of the school room.
Love the wind among the branches.
And the anger and displeasure.
And the wrath of great teachers.
An the murmuring of the pupils
Whose innumerable echoes.
Buzz like bees about the hive,
Listen to these wild traditions.
To the song of this noted class!
Ye who love a class legends.
Love the ballads of Its members.
That, like voices from afar off
Call to us to pause and listen.
Speak li tones so plain and childlike
Scarcely can the ear distinguish
Whether they are suns or spoken.
Listen to the glorious legend.

To the song of this noted class!
If still further you should ask me.
Saying. "Whence arose this class?"
I should answer your inquiries
Straightway and In such words as fol follow.
low. follow. "In the High School of Ocala.
In a dark and silent room.
Lived a teacher, Nellie Stevens.
Of whose fame each one has heard.
Here, we find the song of Wiley.
Find the song of well-known Wiley.
Find his wondrous birth and being
How he prayed, and how he" fasted.
How he lived, and toiled, and suffered.
That he might extend his influence.
That he might advance his learning.
In his youth, this wondrous person
Formed a most pernicious habit;
A habit which has ever grown.
Even the -muscles of his cheek bones
Have enlarge from this awful fate
Of chewing, chewing chewing-gum.
For three years of toll and labor.
Worked this sturdy child alone.
Then from out the Kindergarten
Came a maiden., fair 'and slender.
In this third grade of the High School.
Annie Laurie joined them there.
Here Miss Clark, the ruling mistress,
Held sway o'er these small beings.
In the dark and gloomy hours

Of the dark and gloomy way.
Annie Laurie through toil and effort.
Has helped to make things brighter
Ry answering- many questions - i
Passed from other noble pupils.
Through long year she studied, studied.
Rut as clouds are skept from heaven.
Straightway from her brain departed
All this vast and hard earned nowledge.
In the fourth grade of this history.
Came the"1 lordly Leslie Anderson.
He. the great, the mighty bluffer.
He. the wonderful translator.
As a boy, he was a terror
To the small lads all around.
And in the many fights and conflicts
Would all his foes disappear.
For his mighty height, this person
Has won himself renown.
An.l through his long career
It has been his one desire
That the desks be made much larger,
And room enough acquired
In which to place his mass in ease.
Rut e'en his size does not hinder the
marked success
Which he has made.
The noble way he gained the end.
After twelve long, strenuous, years.
Rut these three were not destined
To a journey by themselves.
For this same year came a maid,
Irma Blake, who is well known.
As a child this maiden lovely.
For her voice, was qu.te distinguished.
All the many sounds of music

Borrowed sweetness from her singing
All the hearts of men were softened
Ry the sweetness of her voice.
This fair child through many winters,
Eer studying, ever learning.
Ever worrying many a teacher
With her pointless observations.
Mounted ever higher, higher.
Until now she stands before you.
One who has acquired great knowledge
Under domineering sway.
Of a teacher named Miss Penick.
There joined the ranks of this great
A lad whose name was Alfred Turner.
Not the auto or the club house
Claimed the time of Mighty Alfred,
Rut a tiobler implement
Which we all know as the plow.
Through his efforts, slow and steady.
The fields of winter, dark and dreary.
Took new life and gave great crops.
From the open book of nature.
Much he" learned to his advantage.
After many years of toil.
Many years of endless study.
He has mounted to the top.
And we find him waxing stronger
In everything that makes a man.
Year by year, thus roving onward
This happy band of loyal children
Received their fate in other grades
Ruled by Miss Turnley and Miss Dye.
In the eighth year of this history
This young band from Miss Borger,

Received the word which would reveal
Their passage to the High School.
Thus, after many years of hardships.
Many years of strife and study.
There began the toilsome journey
That would prove their strength and
Here they found that Mr. Workman
Held full sway and reigned supreme;
Not a harsh and cruel master.
Rut one whose skill and patience
Has won respect from every pupil.

Each effort that was put forth
By the brave and studious pupils

Was made lighter and more easy
By the strong and guiding hand
Of one known as Miss McCreery,
In the year of 1911.
.Then our ranks were greatly Increased
By one listless, dull and dreamy.
She never played with other children,
Always studied by herself;
Ne'er exerting herself in talking
Always very calm and quiet.
But they saw that much she learned.
For Irma Secklnger
E'en though with us these two years.
Has reached the end with added glory.
Here we found with great delight

The master teacher. Mr. Workman,

In his duties as instructor.
In our history, he taught us
Through our last and glorious year.
We have struggled and accomplished
Under his most perfect lead.
A knowledge of unusual merit
Of Latin. Math, and History.
Here we also were instructed
In our English and Science
By Miss Reynolds and Miss Simras.
And now in the Senior year.
One whose name is Mary Reynolds
Has fashioned us a path
A road which leads through regions
Filled with English and with French.
So with all our labors' ended.
Here we stand an immortal six.
All the earth is bright and joyous.
And before us through the sunshine
Stands the golden gate of promise.
Gone is every trace of sorrow.
As the fog from off the water.
As the mist from off the meadow.
With a smile of Joy and triumph.
With a look' of exultation.
We will wait what is to be.
To the teachers we would truly say.
We have listened to your message.
We have heard your words of wisdom;
We will try to live up to it;
Eutve are going, O. ye pupils!
On a long and distant journey,
To the portals of a sunset

Thus spoke the ancient Prophet
many centuries before the coming ot
the Saviour. These words were uttered
at a time In the World's history when
war and slaughter and blood-shed were
the ordinary occupation of men and of
It was Isaiah's vision of universal
peace, and it foretold the final influ influence

race. It foresaw the triumph of reason
and justice and love, over force and
hatred and strife.
At last, almost 2.000 years after the
coming of the Prince of Peace men are
beginning to see the truth. Says
President Butler of Columbia Univer University
sity University speaking as the President of the
American Association for International
Conciliation. "Never before has the

mind of the world been so occupied
with the problems of substituting law
for war. peace with righteousness for
triumphs after slaughter, the victories
of right and reasonableness for those
of might and brute force."
Ever since man ejnerged from the
condition of the savage and developed
the power to think, there have been
some of ?a superior moral and intellect intellectual
ual intellectual power who realized the brutalizing
effect of war, and who understood the
benefits and blessings of peace; but
these were so few' that their voices
were unheeded and their influence was
not felt. Therefore for centuries, not
withstanding that the conscience of
men loves peace rather than strife the

world has continued to revel In blood bloodshed
shed bloodshed and savage destruction of life
and property. Men and women alike
have been led to believe that brutality
is manly and glorious, and that reason
and justice and mercy are cowardly.

We turn to the pages of the history
of nations and find that it is in great
part a chronicle of bloody deeds. The
heroes of history have not been the
just, the merciful, the self-sacrificing

nor have they been the writers of
books, the artists, nor the men of
science. On the contrary, these heroes
have been the kings, the emperors, the
generals and commanders of the war warring
ring warring hosts. We find. too. that while
most of the wars have been waged in
the name of patriotism, and while the
slaughter has generally been carried on
under the pretext of lofty motives
(sometimes under the guise of the
Christian religion itself) the fact re remains
mains remains that the fundamental reason for
the great wars has been the greed,
ambition or selfishness of rulers. War
has been generally the out-growth of
the evil or baser side of human nature.

What rivers of blood have been spilled

Too long have the minds of te
youth been taught to admire the mili military

the warrior has been drawn so as to
appeal to the imagination of the
young and thus have they been led to
believe that true greatness is measured

the true progress of the world, had all

try to peck my hat off."
The child had always been a truth truthful

was shaken. I gently expressed a

"They do it every morning," he per persisted,

another street.
"And what are you doing so far
away from home?" I asked.
"I want my little sister's shoe. It's
in your yard."
"How did it get in our yard?"
"A bird took it off my mamma's
clothesline and brought it over."
And sure enough a search of the
yard disclosed the little white shoe,
which the bird had pulled from the
line and brought over to us. The boy's
mother had seen the feathered thief,
and watched it till it dropped its booty
in our back yard.

A School that U Doing a Great Service
to Colored Hoys and Girls
The people of this section of the
state know and appreciate tne trood

practical work that is beir done at
Fessenden Academy and Industrial
School, a school for colored children of

Florida. located at Fessenden, ix miles
north of Ocala and operated under the
regulations and partially supported by
th Marion county school board.
This school gives the colored youth
of the country the education and train training
ing training that they need to make good citi citizens,
zens, citizens, to live in harmony with the
white race and to be self-supportin?
and a benefit and an uplifting factor
of their own race. When a boy or girl
is graduated from Fessenden, as the

writer recently saw three of thern, he
or she is not merely stuffed with a lit little
tle little book "larnin that they may or
may not forget or fail to put to any
practical use, but if the pupil be a man.
he is a good farmer, a dairyman, a
stockman, a good carpenter, a black blacksmith,
smith, blacksmith, a cabinet maker, a forester, and
can do many other practical things of
life and do them well. And if the grad graduate
uate graduate be a woman, she can teach in any
of the colored schools of the county or
state, she can keep her own or an an-others'
others' an-others' house in first-class condition,
she can cook, wash, do fancy or plain
sewing and most of the other useful
things so unnecessary about the house.
As Principal Wiley said of the grad graduating
uating graduating class, three young negro men,
strong, well developed, capable look looking:
ing: looking: "They could go out into the
world and make a livintr. wherewr you
place him, and in whatever .-urr. fund

many different things and du them
well. They had the confidence and re respect
spect respect of every white farmer and busi business
ness business man in the vicinity of the college,
where they had been under their eyes,
as it were, for a number of years.
These big white farmers know these

boys are reliable and capable."

Prof. Wiley, who has spent almost
twenty years in charge of the school,

has built it up from a very small be beginning
ginning beginning to one of the foremost indus

trial schools for colored students in
the South. The school is only now in
position to reap the best benefits of the
years of careful labor on the part of
its principal and the Star prophesies
that its next few years will see many
splendid improvements in the school,
its equipment and efficiency.
At the graduating exercises a few
days since many distinguished white
visitors were present and paid the
closest attention to the exercises. The
program was carefully selected and
well rendered throughout. Absolute
perfect order is maintained in this
school at all times. The conduct of the
children is one of the things that 'at 'attracts
tracts 'attracts the visitor's attention at once.
In the school room on or the campus,
the utmost respect to others and good
behavior among themselves prevails.
Of the three young men graduates.
F. D. Mazon, McDuffy Ward and B. F.
Brown, each of whom delivered his
long, most interesting and well pre prepared
pared prepared oration with good delivery, easy
and graceful gestures and with never
a hesitation or a word forgotten, the
Star desires to publish the one that
would appeal to the people of this sec section,

others in their way were just as good
and just as well delivered.
The Italians have a song dedicated
to the fair peninsula that they call the
land of beauty, of sunlight and song
and their dear land, the fairest of
earth, but across the vast expanse of
waters that separates their land from
us, in a land yet fairer and with skies
more, resplendent in the golden noon noonday

that are the equal of an artist's dream.
Like Italy, this gem of the new world
is a peninsula, and blest with a cli climate

both fortunate and happy.

Bacause the range of temperature

from every part of the world come to
