College Commencement Set For Friday, June 17th.

Commencement exercises at Dr. Martin Luther college will be held this year on Friday evening, June 17th. Diplomas are to be presented to five students who have completed the full course in the local institution, they being Louis Ehlen of Hamburg, Minn.; Theo. Kudert, Winona; Theo. Schultz, Wisconsin; Wm. Hellermann, Norfolk,, Neb.; and Miss Ida Sterling, New Ulm.

The closing exercises will be held in the chapel and Rev. J. Schaller is to deliver the graduating address. Louis Ehlen is to give the valedictory and Theo. Kudert, the salutatorian, will take the class motto as the subject for his oration. It is likely that Rev. C. J. Albrcht will be called upon for the benediction and this will be followed by a musical program under the direction of Prof. G. Burk.

The latter promises to be of more than usual interest. Several selections are to be given on the pipe organ and the college orchestra and quartette will also contribute.

WINONA COUNTY. From The Winona Democrat, 20th.
We learn that our thoroughly wide-awake fellow-citizen, John Robson, has recently purchased the steamer Ocean Wave, and also another steamer the name of which we have not learned. He has now a very respectable fleet of a half dozen boats in which to ship his heavy receipts of wheat, and our merchants should not fail to give his enterprise every possible encouragement in return loads of merchandise.
