You faint and fainter grow and all control Is gone, and from your lips escapes a sob. From out the deathdike stillness of the place You hear a voice! Tis coldly clear, you start! A dread foreboding stares you in the face. Your name? Ah, no! and wilder beats your heart. Too fast the slender scrolls have disappeared. Oh power of that fair script beyond compare! Oh ghastly woe! Oh tortured soul, so seared By fiery anguish! — Ah, at last! It ' s there! Yours, yours! You clutch it tight. Oh joy, oh bliss! Held ever Life such wondrous thrill as this?

The Abbot Circle 19 2 3 en Commanbment£ for Sfafaot I. Thou shalt chew gum constantly in class to set a good example for the faculty. II. Thou shalt wear thy skirts long, thus solving the cotton stocking problem. III. Thou shalt cram, thereby solving the labor problem in bug-light factories. IV. Thou shalt clean thy room on Sundays only, for " cleanliness is next to god- liness. " V.

And now she ceases writing with a frown, She tosses back her hair, and thinks and thinks; If she could only guess she ' d put it down But no-- her head she shakes, her tears she blinks. Why couldn ' t she have filled her head with lore Instead of reading trash in study time; She vows a dunce she never will be more, She ' ll study so the honor-roll she ' ll climb. The bell rings — she has fled, now she ' ll have fun. In lime she ' ll come to flunk another one.
