The Grand Opera House was filled last Friday morning: to witness the graduating exercises and hear the orations which the members had prepared to mark the closing of their home school life and, possibly, their entrance upon the broader school which social or business life may open to them. The stage was beautifully set, handsomely adorned with a wealth of beautiful flowers, and all the surroundings were in the Highest degree charming. We do not attempt an analysis or criticism of the work of each member of the class. There was no failure in any respect, neither was there soaring into the clouds and attempts made at settling problems which the wisest men of several generations have failed to solve. The program tells the story, if we add that the class In appearance, manners and finish of work honored themselves, their instructors and their parents by the excellent work they did.
