Hunt introduced me speaker of the hour. Dr. Burdick gave a powerful address on the subject, "Masters of Fate," showing forth the great fact that ia being recognized by the ages, that man is a wonderful creation who, rather than being dominated by so-called fate has intelligent dominion over conditions that, for so long, humanity has been pleased to term luck or superstition. He closed his very impressive talk by emphasizing the great truth that real success is not measured by acquiring wealth, power or fame, but by reaching the goal designed for each by his Creator. Then came "the thrill that comes once in a life time," as each 'Senior rose in turn in answer to the roll call and filed across the platform, receiving their diplomas from Dr.

While the graduates were still marveling over their newly acquired possessions, the Glee Club gave another Summer Night" by Moskowski. After Benediction was pronounecd by Rev. Crane of the Methodist church the Seniors received showers of congratulations and loving wishes from their many friends and relatives. An important feature of the program jKas the decorating of the stage. This had beeVi transformed into a veritable bower of spring beauty with the class colors brought into prominence by green ferns, baskets of white roses, bunches of snowballs, and a hugh arch covered with syringas.

On the back wall beneath tiis arch was a large floral reproduction of the class seal, an exquisite piece of work done in white roses with green lettering. A tribute is due Miss Maurine Smith and Mrs. R. C. Hunt for the success of the occasion.

G. James, who lives at 1419 Franklin Springfield, 111. "I had suffered from rheumatism and stomach trouble fifteen years and got in such bad shape I could hardly get around. The rheumatism was especially bad in my legs and sometimes my left leg would swell to twice its normal size. My kidneys were also in such condition I could seldom get a good night's rest, and so far as eating was concerned well, before I began taking Tanlac I had not enjoyed a meal in years.

I suffered so from indigestion, and I had such dizzy spells'-Iwould have to lie down. I became so weak I often gave out completely and they would have to take me hoem in a car, so it is a wonder I held up at all. "One day one of the men I work with Suggested that I try Tanlac and as long as I live I will praise the day I bought it for I haven't a trace of rheumatism now and I eat everything set before me without any bad after effects. The dizzy spells are things of the past and my kidneys never bother me any more; every night I sleep like a log and I weight just 38 pounds more than I did when I began taking Tanlac. I feel twenty years younger and am in perfetc health and there is nothing in the world I would take for the good Tanlac has done me." Tanlai Is Is sold by.Wra.
