Commencement Day at Geneva.
Special Dispatch to the World-Herald.
Geneva, Neb., May 26.—The Masonic temple was crowded to its utmost capacity last night to witness the commencement exercises of the Geneva high school.

It consisted of twenty-five young people, and each did well, which showed the effect of the careful training of Prof. McBrian. The hall was gracefully decorated with mottoes in Latin, German and English, each motto adorned with class colors, red and cream. Special quartets furnished music. George Mozee made the presentation speech and presented the diplomas. The following is the name and subject of graduates:
