_fAUCI0f ACADEMY COMMENCEMEAT.
Another acholastic year at Pala-
oioa Baptist Academy baa come to a
close, the fifthgraduating class have
received their diplomas, and nearly
or quite all the non-resident students
have departed for their homes, filled
with loyalty and devotion to our
great eohooi, and expecting to re-
taro again next year to continue
their studies, surrounded by an en-
vironment which has won th^e love
and appreciation of every student
that has ever been enrolled.
1 the face of what at times seems
selfish self-sacrifices ‘of its invinci
bis and beloved president, M. M.
Wnif. the academy continues to
aet to become a junior college, and
which will soon be an accomplished
The various and splendid pro*
grama of commencement week were
up to and above the high standard
of excellence already set by our
young academy, and were heard by
moat appreciative audiences, such
aa Palacios alone can assemble. We
very much regret that space pre-
cludes an extended notice of the
several programs in detail, but our
capacity this week will admit of on-
ly brief notices of each.
Sunday morning the commence-
ment cermon was delivered by Rev.
John L. Ray, whose daughter, Miss
Ida Belle, graduated from the acad-
emy this year in both the literary
and music departments, comprising
an amount of work that only tbe
moat determined and ambitious stu-
dents care to undertake. Oa ac-
count of unfavorable weather this
.service was held at the Baptist
church instead of at the encamp-
ment auditorium as had been orig-
inally announced. Rey. Ray gave a
.moat able and appropriate discourse
which was enjoyed by a large con-
gregation. Tbe evening service at
whieh the resident pastor, Rev. R.T.
Hanks, delivered the Missionary
■ermon, was also held at tbe church,
Monday evening at the encamp-
ment auditorium, the graduates of
the piano department appeared in a
purely classical program of excep-
auditorium at 10.80 a. m. the medal
contest in expression was given,
the program being interspersed by a
number of choice musical selections.
The crowd was not large, but it
heard one of tbe most pleasing en-
tertainments of the series. The
contestants in expression were
all from among the youngest of tbe
academy students, and were; Janie
Tbomas, Russell Wolf, Flossie
Ramige, Edwin Wolf and Marion
Wolf. The prize, given by tbe
teacher, Miss Brown, was awarded
to Edwin Wolf.
The contest in' extemporaneous
debate was held immediately after
the expression contest, in which the
contestants were J. R. Johnson, J.
J. Rice, Chas. Fothergill, Jamie T.
Ciinkscales, Will Ashley and Nixon
Shrader, the prize being awarded to
Wednesday evening the formal
graduating exercises were held at
which there was another large and
much interested audience.Miss Ber-
nice Taylor of Granger; Miss Ida
yv.ar from the literary department.,
besides the piano graduates hereto-
fore mentioned. Tbe prize winning
thesis of the class was written by
Mr. Chas. Fothergill and read as
one of the numbers of tbe evening's
program. His subject was “The
Value of the Will in its Relation to
Action,” and was a most praise-
worthy production. The address to
the class delivered by the President
Mr. M. M. Wolf, by special request
of the class, was one of the ablest
and most earnest and appropriate
addresses ever heard in this city.
The enthusiasm and genuine sin-
cerity of Dr. Wolf never fails to in-
spire his hearers and hold their
In well chosen and eloquent words
Prof. Echols, of the academy faculty
presented the graduated their di-
plomas, and then awarded the va-
rious medals won as follows:
For the best senior thesis, medal
given by the Smith Mercantile Co.,
awarded to Mr. Cbas. Fothergill.
Medal in extemporaneous debate,
given by Rev. J. W. Mayfield, of
Mart, awarded to Mr. Cbas. Fother-

scholarship, given by Palacios Drug
Co., awarded to Miss Mary Ochse.

given by Miss Brown, tbe teacher,
awarded to Master Edwin Wolf.

HIGH SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT.
The final graduating exerciues of
tho Palacios high ecbool were
held at the spacious auditorium
last Friday evening. On account of
the ram and tho absence of side-
walks in two places approaching
the school building, the attendance
was quite small, but the program
was carried out as arranged, except
that Mrs. It J. Sisson sang a solo
for the number that was to have
been a duet.
The three post graduates read
their graduating theses, and each
was a splendid panor, displaying
careful and original thought in its
preparation, riejily meriting the
high praise they have received.
“The Power of Greatnesb” was
the subject of Mias Ila Williams'
essay. “Ideals and Realities” was
the theme of Mias Leafa Green’s
paper, and “Color Harmony in Na-
ture” was the prize winning thesis,
by Miss Lydia Parker, and which
we publish in full in this issue of
The class address by Rsy. Owers,
pastor of the Christian church, was
splendid and most appropriate, a
synopsis of which appears in this
issue. Those who were not privil-
eged to attend the exercises will
appreciate the privilege of reading
this and Miss Parker’s beautiful
P. F. Campbell, president of the
school truBleeB, presented the
graduates their diplomas, prefacing
his remarks to them with a retro-
spective review of the history of
Palacios schools from their begin-
ning, a picture of progress that ev-
ery Palacios citizen could look upon
with moat pardonable pride.
Thus closed the greatest, moat
prosperous and harmonious year in
tbe history of our fine public schools.
The high school alumoi banquet
will be given at the Hotel Palacios
Thursday evening of next week.

CHOPPING COTTON MAIN T0NAY
Business men and salesmen and
citizens of Palacios to the number
of fifty went out again to help Ibe
with their work in clearing the corn
and cotton of weeds and grass. Tho
stores were not close today, at least
ooe man being left in charge of each
business place to wait on tbe trade.
Tbe work already done with that
being done today will save many
acres of field products that otherwise
would have been taken by tbe weeds,
%Dd result in a great saviog to many
farmers who have been helped. A-
side from this the spirit of coopera-
tion and desire to help intime of need
will be worth much to the people of
both town and country, illustrating
that neither is independent but that
they are each dependent upon the
other for real eucceee and pros-
perity. There is no dollars and
cents estimate to he placed on tbe
worth of the work thus voluntarily
done by ibe citizens of Palacios,
though something should happen
to destroy the crops entirely.
Tbe move to give the vote to
Southern women is becoming very
active and it would be a fine tribute
to tbe intelligence and worth of our
southern womanhood to place them
on a political plane where their
opinioDs and judgment could be
Voiced in tbe State. The South
needs the counsel and help of
its women, and votes for wsmsa
should be the cbiyalrous aim of ev-
ery true Southern mao.
