"Young ladlea and gentlemen when
you go home you will find there Sally '
and Ann John and Hill Sarah and
Lewla aa you left them. They were
your old frlenda before you went off
to achool. Now that you have been
off and returned home they will eye
you at a dlatance. They will think
that you have gotten above them and
that you have the big head. The
thing for you to do ia to go around to
Henry and Annie and Sally alap them
on the back take them by the hand
and tell them that you are glad to be
back with hem and not only tell them
that but feel it. Talk with them about .
old times you had together and make
them feel that you are the same old
fellow that you were before you 'left

Nlgh and Commtnctmtnt
The commencement concert of the
Bryan Baptist Academy was thorough
ly enjoyed by a large and appreciative
audience last night
Because of Illness in the family
Mrs. W. C. Davis was unable to ap
pear which made necessary a read
Juatment of two of the voice numbers
on the very afternoon of the perform-
ance. The program went smoothly how
ever and was an artistic success. '
Misses Roste and Reglna Hart play-
ed the Bohm sonata with good expres-
sion and finish and Miss Rosle Hart
In Sonata No 9 by Haydn was bril-
liant her Interpretation being one of
the most enjoyable numbers of the
Little Bess lllnes played the Haydn
sonata movement wltli exquisite touch
and fine phrasing. For one so young
her rendition of both numbers In
which she appeared was wonderful
and completely captured the audience.
Mrs George Adama aang two solo
numbers beautifully to one of which
I Mr. Schaefer of the. A. ft M. College
added much with a well played violin
Miss Ruth Boat mrlght sang pleasing-
ly and played with much rich volume
and brilliancy. ' ;
Kontskl's "Awakenlt of the Lion"
played by four young ladles at the
j piano was a most enj; yable number
of the program. It wV rendered by
Misses l.lllle Fae Sanders Irene Brim-
son Belle- Gainer aiill Annie May
The Bridal Chorus "from Cowen's
"Rose Maid" served as a fitting cli-
max to the evening of music and was
given with excellent regard for
nuance and shading In the more dell-
cate passages and a flood of rich
golden tone where the music called
tor strength and sonority. It was
sung by Mesdames Swancoat and
Adams and Miss Florine Batte so-
pranos; Misses Evelyn Sanders Annie
Belle Batte and Mrs. McQueen first

Commencement day exercises were
held this morning at 10 o'clock at the
Colonial Theatre In the presence of
another large audience.
The feature of the hour was the
commencement address delivered be-
fore the graduating class by Judge
Nelson Phillips of Austin. The epeak-
er was introduced by Hon. W. C. Davis
of this city.
J"- 'l"I"l. 'n his Introductory
renmrks- a""r'd h" 'lnr that
while he deemed It the duty of every
e'"""" o setve the caiiKe of education
ln w SBP ln vey Possible way
that this duty was not the only reason
he came to Bryan on this occasion;
that he came because he really wanted '
to because he loved young people and
the Inspiration and encouragement
their presence always gave him. He
told of his love for Whittler's "Bare-
foot Boy" and said he kept a picture
of the ruddy faced lad hanging in his
library where he often lost himself
In memory of youth's happy days
which memories sometimes became
realities when with hook and line
he bestirred himself from thought and
e and really went fishing In a
nearby stream and lived over again
boyhood daya of youth and pleasure.
Character was the keynote of the ad-
dress and the gifted speaker led his
hearers on from The preparation days
of youth through the vicissitudes of
life amid the storms of fate and trial
and the overwhelming waves of ad-
versity when the soul and heart of
man Is called upon for every fibre of
Its strength and courage and pointed
out the star of faith and hope of which
Paul speaks as the rock upon which
to build the foundation of character.
He told the graduating class that edit-
ration was nersHary of course but
education Is worth nothing alone; ft
must serve the clisrnrtcr that Is with-
in lie reminded I lie in of Ilia privi-
lege of being born and reared and

Texans enjoy In being thoss for whom-
