A Tribute to our Leader

The graduating exercises of St. Helen's Hall of Portland, Ore., took place June 13, 1901, in the presence of a large audience. On the platform were the venerable Bishop of the Diocese, several clergymen of the Episcopal Church, the president of the State University, Dr. Franz Strong, and many scholarly men and women of Oregon.

One of the brightest young ladies of the class read an interesting essay on "Famous Women of America." Among those mentioned in a brief account were Harriet Beecher Stowe, Margaret Fuller, Mary Lyons, Frances Willard, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, closing with a tribute to Mary Baker Eddy, the Leader of Christian Science. Neither this young lady nor her parents are in any way connected with Christian Science, but the recognition comes from the standpoint of a well-informed student on the topics and movements of the day.—Mrs. A. B. C.

God works in all things; all obey
His first propulsion from the night;
Wake thou and watch!—the world is gray
With morning light!
