Not only is the course ot studv
such that prepares the teacher so
thoroughly as to be able to meet
the demands of life by giving him a
broad view and strength of mind
which enables him to cope with
these problems, with great credit to
himself, but there is ever that side
that partaKes of a social nature,
which is so essential to every individ
ual's life, which is so carefully plan
ed as to be of great worth education
ally, as well as great pleasure.
There is the lecture course which
gives the student the opportunity to
hear some of the best music and
greatest lecturers in the United
States, two of whom we have had
the pleasure of hearing this year,

About the greatest thing that has
ever been in this city was the Music
Festival given by the Oritorio Society
May 10th under the direction of Prof
Franz J. Strahm, the head of the
department of music of this institu
tion. There were two great pro
grams, the matinee which was rather
unique in that it was rendered not
only by a forty-piec- e
soloists, both vocal aad violin, but
the chorus was sung by a hundred
and fifty public school children of
this city. The last number of the
program was an "American Battle
Scene," a great descriptive piece
which aroused the emotions of all
present, so yivid were the musical
pictures. And the night was Hay

The hearing of such a musical com
position as this, is a treat that many
of us may never have again, and one
no person could afford to miss, whether
he is a lover of music or not.
Everything that is essential to a
well rounded and fully developed
education is placed within the reach
of every student.

more of our members from Jefferson

Bright Lad Passed Away.
Carl Nachand, aged 12 years, five
months, ten days, beloved and eldest
son of Mr. Chas. Nachand, of Lyn
don, passed away Friday, May 24th,
1912, at 12 o'clock noon, after an ill
ness of only a short time of organic
heart disease. Carl had a bright and
sunny disposition and became endeared to all who knew him. His
sudden passing away in his youth is
deeply regretted by the entire community, and all join in extending
their deepest sympathy to the bereaved ones. The funeral services
were held at the home on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by
Rev. Theo. Hemplemann, pastor of
the Clifton Evangelical church. Interment was in Cave Hill cemetery.
