Here we are! What do you think of us? Yes, we are a little early this year, but
we thought it would benefit everyone to come out sooner than usual.
The management this year felt that they would like to get out the "best yet." For
this reason more space has been given to the literary work and less to the advertising. A
great deal of stress was laid on getting out satisfactory cuts and printing so that the ex-
penses were greater.
The business men whose ads you see in this Class Book expect returns from their
public reminders. Don't forget that this annual would be an impossibility -were it not for
these few loyal business men. Therefore, we humbly beg you to patronize these adver-
We wish to thank the whole school for the help we have received in getting this
Annual out and especially the Senior class, all of whom in some way aided us.
We now leave you, wishing the best of success to every organization of dear old
C. B. H. S., and hoping to see the banner of Crimson and Blue raised higher and high-
er until at last no other is above it.

Qllama Sung, 1911
Tune, "Daisies Won't Tell."J
Four long years we've struggled,
For this parting day,
Many are the victories
We've won on our way.
We shall always treasure
Memories of thee,
And our dear old High School,
Ever honored be.
Dear School, we leave thee,
Ne'er to return,
Always we'll love you,
And for thee yearn.
We'll ne'er forget thee,
And always be true,
Dear School, to you.
Maroon and White forever,
Is our battle cry,
May our colors always
Be unfurled on high.
And our motto ever
Be our golden rule,
In the world's great battle,
"Life is now our school."
0112155 Harm, 1911
Commencement Day, we hail thee,
With jewels rare ancl Howers gay,
We crown thee and all must agree,
Though classes gone before may say
They, too, this goal have won,
That on a higher pinacle of fame,
ln colors brighter than the sun,
The class of eleven writes its name.
Treasurecl in our memories dear
Are our school days of the past,
Climbing, climbing, year by year,
'Till the High School's reached at las
In the hall we've won our place,
Won on Held mid glorious strife,
On many tracks we've set the pace,
So bravely on to the work of life.
Dear C. B. H. S., we give to thee,
Our loyalty through all our life:
To thee, ever true, we'll endeavor to be
When engaged in the world of strife.
May the mem'ry of all that is past,
The triumphs of maroon and white rule
Be our hope and our strength to the last
In the life which is now our school.

lBeing an account of the manner in which divers tvilal beasts were changed into the
semblance of human beings.l
Once upon a time there grew a mighty forest and in it were all manner of beasts
and birds: and they were all very wild, not knowing the ways of man.
And into this forest the Great Keeper sent his helpers saying: "Gather me out
now the young of all the beasts-that we may teach them things hitherto unknown to
them: that they may learn to act almost as if they were men and women: for I have a
purpose in my heart concerning them."
And so the helpers drove them in-the lion cubs and the young tigers, the baby ele-
phants and the monkeys, the rubberneck giraffe and the jumping kangaroo, bears and deer
and wolves and hippos-every sort of beast was there: and the trainers began their work.
And some were stupid and could not learn, and some were lazy and would not: and to
these all was a dreadful task, only undertaken because of the fear of the trainers lashg but
to others the work became interesting and they pressed forward eagerly-some because
they enjoyed the work and some for the sake of the reward held out to the proficient,
Lots of sugar made them eager to do as they were taught.
Step by step these latter advanced until at length they attained to the privileges and
trials of entering into the great enclosure of the Head Keeper, and of sometimes being
allowed to display some of their accomplishments before mankind.
And they dwelt under his care for four long yearsg and many things befell them,
so that time would fail to tell them all.
And this was the manner of their training: Diligently they labored on new stunts
day by day, and then when the people gathered in the great enclosure at stated times
those who had shown themselves the most agile and most "tricky" were allowed to per-
form. Once a year also they were allowed to roam again through their native wilds to try
if they were really being won away from savagery.
In the first year of their stay they were most cruelly treated by hostile beasts whom
they found already within the enclosure
The manes of the young lions were cut off: the beautiful fawns were caught and
striped like tigers and spotted like leopardsg the monkeys were caged in locked enclosures
and showered with water: yea, and they were made to run through a long lane of Hat
hard branches that fell on them violently as they hastened by.
And some were disheartened and turned back again to the forest and were heard of
no more, but the great part persevered.
And some were given blue suits and guns and learned to drill just like soldiersg it
was really wonderful that young animals should do so well. And they learned by
degrees to wait their turn for food and not to snatch and scramble.
They watched with wonder and amazement while the older and better trained ani-
mals gave exhibits of their skill-and at the end of the season a few of them were even
allowed to compete with these older beasts in running and jumping, but without success.
Then they went away for a time into the forest---and lo, the second season was come.
And by much reiteration they learned to say quite plainly, "C-C-Cou-N-
N-Cil-Council Bluffs High School!" Likewise to know the difference between
Rugby and other football. And since they were but animals they hastened to visit upon
the new animals all the cruelties and even more, of which they had been the victims.
At this time they likewise learned that since the shortest distance between two points
is the straight line which joins them, it is clearly demonstrated that the longest way
round is the shortest way home. .
They had trainers for everythingg a Beverage trainerg and two Rice trainers fone of
the great trials which the carnivorous animals had to undergo, was to learn to refrain from
devouring the other beasts, a Reed-ing trainer-a Bender also. The Thrush abandoning
her natural vocation taught only uclickety clackn and the great Roman Pilum trainer
taught, instead of war, the ways of peace and the romance of star gazing. There was also
one who taught them to build pyramids and cast balls-and another who bade them stand
upright and roar violently, waving with their paws meanwhile. One also much grieved
them because, oft when the young lion wished to prowl about at night he restrained him.
And in this season some of the animals made the tumbling troupe who did the
"Football Stunt" in the autumn performance-the elephant making center and the lion
One performance also was a trial between animals of different periods-and in this,
the "Basketball Act"-our animals were successful in winning second place. In the
field contest also they took third place.
And so the season drew to a close and again they were permitted to roam in the
cool dark forest.
When again they returned to the great enclosure, behold, a new Ring Master had
been installed: but the old keeper stayed yet a while that the beasts might become ac-
customed to the change.
And some began to read and arrange letters so that they would spell real words-
and to wave their paws and roar mightily-so that the Echoes returned unto them even
from the heights of old Gibraltar.
At this time a great blowing match ensued between the females and the males of
the Melta Kow and Aerophilian troupes in which the Melta Kows demonstrated their su-
perior ability and were rewarded by being allowed to drink from a golden cup for a
A great catastrophe at this time occurred. Many rats had stolen secretly into the
enclosure and had built great nests among the long hair of the females and it was impos-
sible to dislodge them.
In the great debating troupe at this time many of these animals showed much ability
to chatter and even some glimmering effort to use a reasoning faculty. At least six-a
fox, a deer, a lion, a tigress, a bear, and a leopard-attained honorable mention at this
Likewise they warred with those older ones who had so cruelly abused them in the
beginning-and the battle was furious, so that the trainers said: "What is the use? Once
a beast, always a beast." But the Great Trainer said, "Not so. These are but the last
dying outbreaks of the old wild animal. Have patience and you shall see." And it was
true for, behold! they forgave these, their enemies, and did pleasantly entreat them and
offered them a pleasant place for a sojourn where they might enjoy themselves for a few
hours before they were sent out from the enclosure forever.
And now for the last time the keepers assemble them within the great park and it
looks very goodly to them and they remember all the years of their sojourn and marvel
that the time has been so short. And because the "Football Troupe" does not warm up
to their work the Ring Master is angry and throws away the football. But otherwise,
behold how these animals have been tamed and trained.
'Tis .true that some lingering traits remain-the lion is still regarded as king, even
though he is so tame that he will eat from a girl's hand-the elephant retains his bulk-
the monkey cannot refrain from occasional grimaces and monkeyshines for which reason
he is oftener in disgrace than any other-the peacock still struts and spreads his shining
feathers-the deer are still dears-the tigress rages fearfully on occasion and the bear
with the sore head growls at every opportunity.
But in some things they do mightily excel. The kangaroo can jump farther than
any animal in this or the neighboring forests. Fleet of foot are they also and canmake
great letters hanging by their toes over steep precipices and can mount great and dizzy
heights for the honor of their mystic number. From being afraid of the Haunting red
flag of the trainer they have come to love it dearly-so that the highest reward to each
seems to be great streamers of red and white bound about their bodies. They have
learned to stand upright so much that it seems almost naturalg and they wave their paws
about violently and pretend to discuss great political questions as if they really thought like
men. These did much work in the performances in this season, both in the "Debating
Troupe" and in the "Basketball Troupe." Others played musical instruments and one
made picturesg some also were magicians and drew mystical figures which cause the
whole city to wonder-but a dire calamity overtook these so that they were covered from
head to foot with great yellow spots like unto the plague.
And now they begin to find the thrall of beast life irksome and some are even
tempted to break the Great Keeper's rules. Some breaking from the enclosure, try a
"Wild Indian Stunt" on the streets, which much terrifies some people and a horse or
two-but they are quickly recaptured.
Likewise, the Aerophilians at this time win from the Melta Kows the privilege of
drinking from the golden cup.
And they determine they will plant a mighty staff and from it shall Haunt for aye
the colors they so dearly love-the red and the white, the stripes, with the stars of our
But gently and persistently they are led slowly and surely on toward the goal set
before them from the day of their entrance.
They are soothed with music--they are adorned with new garments- they are
coaxed and feasted and allowed to frolic as never before-they begin to see dimly what
the life of men and women may be like.
And then comes the final-the last day of training. All arrayed in their newest
finery-when the band strikes up the Pilgrims Chorus from Tannhauser they come march-
ing into the last performance-the trainers marching on ahead. Each one finds his ac-
customed place for the last time and faces the great crowd with fear and trembling.
They are not allowed at this time to show the remarkable feats they have learned to
perform, for a man, a mere man, has the floor which they have so often trod. They
try to listen-but some of them nod weariedly until the Great Trainer rises up. Then
they are all attention as he begs the audience to watch the miracle he is about to perform.
Calling each by name he gives to him a little talisman bearing the magic colors, red and
white-and pronouncing the mystical formula-lo, these beasts, gathered from the forests
of ignorance, are transformed before the eyes of all into men and women-no longer to be
penned in the Keeper's enclosure, but sent out to do the world's work and learn Life's
lessons-For Life ls Now Their School. And with one mighty roar they put aside their
old beast ways forever and went out from the enclosure sadly for they had learned to
Unto Thee, O grim Monarch of the ages,
Do we leave the care of future Senior classes.
May you watch o'er them and in times
Of darkness, guicle their steps aright,
To all that is just, pure, and honorable:
And teach them that Gocl is good and hears

RIP VAN WINKLE, UP-TO-DATE.
It was a glorious afternoon in September. The sun had just passed the zenith and
was now well on his journey toward the western horizon. The air was still and motion-
less and the leaves on the trees hung inert and lifeless. Insects, buzzing past, hummed
away through the heavy air. The cows in a nearby pasture stood knee-deep in a cool
pool of water and lazily switched away the flies that tormented them. I observed these
details from the dusty road along which I was tramping. Presently I turned off from
the road and started to climb the woody slope at my left. The cool shade of the leafy
boughs looked immensely inviting and after advancing a few rods into its shadowy depths,
I threw myself down upon the ground and indulged my tired limbs in peaceful rest.
Gradually, the hum of the Hies and gnats grew fainter and fainter, and the light glancing
through the tree tops, dimmer. Finally, I closed my eyes and Hoated off on airy wings to
the realms of Morpheus.
When I awoke it was early morning and the birds were twittering and calling to
eath other in the tree tops. The sun was just lifting up his lustrous countenance above
the eastern hills and flooding the dewy earth with his radiant beams. As I arose to look
about me, a little "cottontail" whisked away across the slope. When I tried to walk
my bones creaked and I knew I would have a hot-box in short order if some lubricator
was not applied immediately. I looked around me. The scene had undergone no
changes as far as I could see, but strangely, I could not tell where I was or how and
when I had gotten there. "My sakes!" I exclaimed to a mossy stump nearby. "This is
a pretty mess, sleeping out here on the damp ground has given me a siege of rheumatism
that will take seventeen bottles of Wizard Oil to cure. Serves me right. The fellows
will certainly bawl me out for not having sense enough to come home to roost. But
it can't be helped now, and I may as well go back to the "den" and face the music
like a Dutch bandmasterf'
Having delivered myself of this lengthy soliloquy, I started through the trees in the
direction that I thought town was. I trudged on stiflly, something like a dignified monu-
ment, and was almost despairing of ever reaching the "den" when I came upon a curious
structure, half cabin, half dug-out in the side of the hill. In the doorway a very odd
looking old crone sat stroking the furry back of a large black cat, while over her head
on a perch a parrot danced and cried out monosyllables now and then merely as a sam-
ple of its vocal powers. As I approached, Polly called out, "Hey there! Hist along
you old fright! Beat it!" I assure you my gentle reader that this was a rather startling
reception to one in the condition I was. Nothing daunted me, however, and I drew
nearer and addressed our ancient friend.
"My good woman," I said soothingly, in way of preface, "can you give a starving
wanderer something with which to satisfy the pangs of hunger and thirst?"
She started and the cat, whose tail had swollen to the size of a stovepipe, scampered
off into the interior of the shack.
"What do you mean by coming up here to bother a poor woman trying to forget
the world and your hateful sex. Is it not enough that I have lived here twenty years
in solitude and now you come to pollute my sight? Alas, I can find no solace even in
loneliness: but I demand my rights. Leave my refuge and never more dare set foot in
these sacred precincts!"
I was somewhat startled by this sudden and unprovoked invective. I stood motion-
less several seconds contemplating that withered and sallow complexion. "S'death!"
I exclaimed, "I have seen that physiognomy before. Now I have it. Art thou not the
once far-famed Mrs. Pankhurst?"
"Mock me not, stranger," she returned in a menacing tone. "I warn you, leave
this place if you value your life. I am she whom you have just named-but begone, as
I prefer to breathe pure air!"
I saw it was useless to argue with our British friend so I turned away weary and
faint with hunger. After I had tramped on an hour or so I came into the suburbs of a
great city. I had never before in all my life seen anything like it. Talk about New
York? Why, New York isn't on the map anymore. Immense buildings, seventy-five
and one hundred stories high, reared their lofty pinnacles into the azure sky. Airships
flitted here and there, alighting on the tops of various buildings to take on and let off
passengers. As I walked down one of the streets I met the most strangely dressed
people. All the gentlemen wore silk hats and the ladies all dressed in the same style.
This latter phenomenon staggered me since I had been accustomed to all manner of con-
trivances produced by the milliner's artful hand. Autos whirled up and down: and if
I had seen a horse I would have greeted him as a long lost brother. At each corner
there was a flight of stairs leading below the surface, at the top of which there was a
sign that bore the legend, "SUBWAY STATION."
Suddenly I was seized with an uncontrollable desire to inspect one of the largest
office buildings I had passed. I entered the lobby and began to scan the directory for a
"Great Caesar!" I suddenly exclaimed. "What do you know about this: 'R.
TI-IORNELL IVIAUER, Instructor of Voice and Piano, I-Iarmony and Theory, 56.00 per
hour. Pupil of Telka, Razamosky and Paderewskig Room 2!04., I jumped into an
elevator that was about to go up and soon I was landed on the tiled Hoor of the twenty-
flrst story. I looked for 2104 and to my infinite joy the door of the reception room
stood ajar and I walked in and settled myself rather heavily in a huge arm-chair.
Through the transom, over the ground-glass door that bore the sign 'Prof. Mauer, Priv-
ate,' there emanated the sounds of a female voice struggling with this excerpt, "Ah-ah,
th-th-the Huahs thot blook-m in the spring-tide, dawlingf followed by several agile
gymnastic feats on the chromatic scale.
"Suffering Shoelacesln I groaned when she rendered an A Hat, G natural. Suddenly
Mr. lVIauer's booming basso broke in on the warbling: "It ees not zat way Mamselle,
you should place ze tip of ze tongue against ze lower teeth and open ze larynx to an angle
of 570 42' IS" and produce ze syllable 'ah'." The girl again, according to the profes-
sor's directions, shot up and down the scale with incredible rapidity. After a few
minutes parley the door was thrown open and the great virtuoso followed out a fashionably
dressed young lady who Hounced out of the studio with the usual affectation peculiar to
girls of a certain type.
Mr. Mauer, not recognizing me at first approached with a deferential attitude, in-
quiring what he could do for me.
"I say, old chap, you can give me something to eat if you don't mind, don't you
know," I cried, "I am so hungry that even Bailey's beans would taste like a porterhouse
smothered in onions."
"By Jove, it's you, L. W.," exclaimed Dutch Dingle, wringing my hand. "How
on earth-why man alive, you've been dead fifteen years."
"I can't help that," I returned exasperated, "I don't care whether I've been dead
a hundred and fifteen years. I'm hungry as a bear and I know I can't hold out
much longer. Give me something to eat and let's discuss my death afterwardsf'
"That's alright, old man," said Mauer with a laugh. I-le touched a bell by the
door-jamb, which brought a many-buttoned bellboy into the room.
"Did yer ring, sir?" he asked.
"Yes, tell Delmonico's to send up dinner for two in 2104 and be quick about it."
"Yes sir," and the apparition vanished.
Ten minutes elapsed and finally a knock at the door announced the arrival of our
dinner. The waiter entered and disposed of the viands on the center-table and we pro-
ceeded to direct a couple of l2-inch siege guns on the edibles in question without any
polite delay. I answered lVlauer's numerous questions in monosyllables between bites.
By the time I had gotten rid of any ordinary man's rations for a week he had pumped
the whole story of my strange adventure out of me.
"Would you kindly tell me," I said at last, "what town or city this is?"
"I see, your long nap has sadly muddled your think machine. Why, this is Council
Bluffs, the capital of the state of Iowa, and we are in a small division known as Omaha."
"But, what about the river." I asked.
"The city has been built over the river. If you take the Riverside Subway and
get off at the l 12th street station and walk nine blocks north you will hnd the old Mis-
souri rushing into a big tube that Hows under the city."
"I-low large is this town?" I asked again.
"Well,' the city includes old Council Bluffs, Omaha, South Omaha, Florence, Ben-
son and the Orpheum." I sniffed the air.
"Where are the packing houses?" I inquired.
I "Oh, they were run out of here six years ago. They've all moved to Chicago, and
say by the way, you remember Swede Spooner."
"I should say I do," I answered.
"Well, he is president of the United Packing Company of America, and Boylan is
the head attorney of the firm."
"You don't say so!" I said incredulously. "Oh, he was always sort of windy
chap, so it's no wonder."
"Is this a trust?" I asked as a matter of course.
"I should say not!" exclaimed the professor, contemptously.
"There is no such thing any more. Senator Long from Iowa introduced a
bill into Congress that busted the trusts wide open. They have been forgotten and
their bones moulded to dust."
"Marvelous," I muttered, squelched.
"Speaking of Congress," continued the pupil of Tekla, Razamosky and Paderew-
ski." In the recent elections, Gretzer was elected United States representative from the
Ninth district of Iowa and just last session he made a speech that brought tears to the
large chandelier in the House and curses to the lips of the reporters."
"But you've told about all the fellows. VV here are the girls? Aren't they still on
"They surely are," babbled our friend from the Zuyder Zee. "Look at this,"
handing me a noon edition of The Nonpareil. I read:

"Great Guns!" I exploded. "And it was I that ran on to that old fossil out there
in the Bluffs somewhere. I guess she had started for Reno to get new converts and
they put her off here. She said she was disgusted with my vile sex. May her bones
rest in hot water! By the way, where is Edith Long, that demure, that bashful maiden?"
"She's head-master of Gallaudet College, Washington, D. C., and one of the fore-

Just then a pupil entered and Prof. Mauer went into the studio, leaving me in
company with a morning edition of the New York Times. To my surprise I read on the
front page this item:

I had unearthed the old l9ll Class Book from a pile of books under the table
and was looking over the worn pages and recalling the good old times we used to have at
the High School when Mauer, having got rid of his pupil, came and sat down beside me.
"Here's several people I havenit been able to find out what they are doing. Tell
me where these are."
He followed my finger as I pointed out several people.
"Raleigh Pryor? Why, he's the owner of a big cattle ranch down in Arizona.
Worth a couple of million from what I've heard."
"Mary Virtue? She is a missionary in India. I've heard that she is doing excel-
lent work there in the way of erecting schools and hospitals."

It has been the custom for some years past for the graduating class to give a class
play. Some years they have acted out the prophecy, and others they have played light
This year the class of l9I I will play "A Scrap of Paper," or "Adventures of a
Love Letter." This is a French comedy drama in three acts. The plot is exceedingly
lively and full of comic incidents. The play is based on the courtship of a young gentle-
man and a young lady. They carry on quite an extensive correspondence, using a small
statuette as an exchange. On leaving her one evening he becomes engaged in a duel,
and is wounded, so that he is unable to go to the statuette to get her letter. The next
morning the lady is taken away and married to a jealous baron. After an absence of
three years, and a tour around the world, the young man returns to find his former
sweetheart married. It is now the young man's turn to explain why he did not save her
from being married to this jealous old baron. During his explanation it developes that
the letter was never received. The principal plot is the recovery of the letter without
the baron knowing anything about it. But it is finally recovered and burned, leaving the
baron with only a suspicion.

Onward, upward ever climbing,
Thus our class will ever be,
Tho' the way be clark and stormy,
And our path we scarce can see,
We,ll take hope and climb on higher,
To that land they call success,
Then we'll turn to memories, storehouse,
View the days we love the best.
Soon we too shall be departing,
From these scenes we love so dear,
And our hearts are with the Seniors,
Who are leaving us this year.
May they ever be successful
In each walk of life they take,
May they ever be our comrades,
And our friendship never break.
Now we are a mighty number,
Soon shall come our time to pass,
Let us not then stop and slumber,
Cry "Excelsior" for our class.
Do not stop, but keep on going,
Have we not but just begun?
Do not drift, but keep on rowing,
The race we've started is not won.

To the class of 1911, we, as Sophomores, bid a fond farewell, wishing you a
bright and prosperous future.
Our class, IZ4 strong, has made an excellent showing during our career.
We are a live and active class, giving the school our hearty co-operation in all of its
branches of work.
During our Freshman year we did not, apparently, accomplish much in basketball,
but the foundation was laid for our brilliant showing this year.
The team this year, consisting of Asa Baker, Frank Giles, Frank Officer, Edward
Pheney and Arthur Lennox, with Harry Crowl as captain, won seven out of eight games.
Part of these were out-of-town teams, which they had scheduled of their own accord, a
thing never done by any class team before. They also won the Tri-City Sophomore
championship and completed their success for the year by winning class championship,
thus breaking a long chain of victories claimed by the Seniors. Our team is now in fine
condition for even better work next year.
We are well represented in the Cadets and two of our number are corporals.
In literary work we are by no means lacking. As Freshmen, three of our class,
Walter Short, Harold Barr and Harry Cherniss, won the debate with the Omaha Fresh-
men by a unanimous decision. These three have again honored their class this year-
Harry Cherniss, by helping to defeat Omaha a third time: Walter Short and Harold Barr
by their excellent debating at the Inter-Society contest and Harold Barr again by winning
the gold medal for a declamation in the Oratorical and Declamatory Contest.
The girls' basketball team has not made a brilliant showing this year: but has been
doing a great deal of good practical work and training.
Our Sophomore Echoes' notes this year have been unusually good, being full of
lively class news written with a class spirit. Our editor, Harold Barr, has also illustrated
the notes at various times by appropriate cartoons which have added greatly to the
spirit and success of the work.
The track team, with Herman Friedman as captain, worked hard, but were unable
to capture other than fourth place in the Inter-Class Field Meet.

A Freshman! How that recalls to the minds of us all our first day in High School!
Creeping into the hall, we gazed fearfully around at the maze of rooms before our won-
dering eyes. Passing laughing groups who promptly called out "Freshie!", we blushed
and bolted through the first friendly doorway, only to find ourselves in the wrong room,
and then escaped, covered with confusion. But worse was yet to come-some of our
most dignified members wandered to school one morning with hair cut in the most ap-
proved style, and faces fantastically painted. ls it any wonder we failed to recognize our
friends in these subdued individuals with sadder--but-wiser expressions? We were,
to say the least, inhospitably treated, and resolved that the next "Freshies" should receive
a kinder welcome from us.
Freshies were everywhere, quite filling the building-indeed, the l9l4 class was
one of the largest. Not only did we excel in quantity but quality. Few have dropped
out, showing the perseverance of our class to be greater than that of previous classes.
Although green at first, after undergoing the frosts of winter we lost that verdant air
which the second semester class vainly tried to conceal.
Speaking of games, have you seen our basketball team play? We are proud of our
team. With James Leverett as captain, excellent work has been done by the boys. Al-
though they lost the games with the Sophs, Juniors and Seniors, they deserve commenda-
tion for their pluck and perseverance, and will no doubt win laurels in the near future.
We also boast of a very clever debating team. As a result of conscientious study,
they had an intimate knowledge of the subject. This, coupled with fluency in speech
and skill in diction, left no doubt as to the judges' decision in the debate with Omaha.
Thus we are becoming more acclimated to High School atmosphere and hope to be
a credit to old C. B. H. S. Everyone takes interest in, and many actively support, the
various organizations. Some are identihed with the cadetsg others have won fame in the
literary work or athletic field: still others show remarkable talent in musical organizations.
The splendid progress made thus far will, if proportionately increased, make the class of
l9l4 the banner class.

The managers of the Echoes for l9l0-I l believe that Volume X has surpassed all
other years. There was a new cut for the cover every month, a thing which in itself is an
advancement over the foregoing volumes. The largest single issue ever printed was pub-
lished as the Christmas number.
The whole staff worked together to turn out a good paper, not leaving it entirely to
two or three to see that the paper had suflicient material.
A new department was added on account of the organization of the Shakespearean
Dramatic Club. It will probably be necessary next year to add a new member to the
staff to take care of this new department.
Last year, only the Senior number was arrayed in the class colors, but this year, in
order to make the paper more wholly representative of the school, the Junior issue was
likewise printed in their class colors.
Another asset of Volume X of the Echoes was their exchange list. It was one of
the largest ever boasted by an Echoes staff. High School papers were received from
every direction: from Maine to Vvashington, and Minnesota to Texas.
Leaving the Echoes on good terms with all the business men of the city and leaving
it with such a high standard of success, the departing staff hope that their successors will
strive their hardest to excel the nine issues of Volume Ten.

Philomathian is a name destined to live long after our bonds of school life here are
broken. Especially will we Seniors look back on the year l9lO-l9ll as a year to be
remembered in Philo history, partly because of the fact that, for us, it is the culmination
of four years' loyal effort to boost old Philo, partly because of the splendid ranks of
unclerclassmen we see coming up to Fill our places, and partly because we feel a deep
and growing interest in the splendid progress of dear old Philo.
Philomathian, by the aid of her brilliant sons, Harold Barr, Walter Short, and
Frank White, has regained the coveted Inter-Society cup from our historic rivals, the
Delta Taus. It was a fight well fought out-a credit to coaches Brindley and Sayles.
On February 3 we met Fort Dodge and Sioux City in the triangular debates, in
which Council Bluffs was indecisively defeated again. Out of the six team members, the
Philos furnished four, calling to mind an unusual state in our society. Out of a member-
ship of between fifty and sixty, we were able to furnish different and brilliant material for
the Sioux City, Fort Dodge, Inter-Society, and Umaha debates, a condition that speaks
well for the work of Coach Brindley and the literary work in our school.
The closing year has seen a new innovation-a Clee Club, composed of Philo
members. Under the leadership of Miss Bar its members have spent many pleasant
hours in practising. Their work indicates that another season will witness a splendid suc-
As we write, the annual Oratorical and Declamatory Contest is the center of at-
tention. Philo will be ably represented by Robert Daniels and Charles Barr as orators,
and by Harold Barr and Walter Stillman as declaimers. We predict either a victory
for the Philos or at least a Hght worth remembering.
Also our annual banquet looms up ahead, promising some good and original toasts
and a jolly time together.
This, in brief, is the record which the Philo oflicers, President Mauer, Vice Pres-
ident Spooner, Secretary Daniels, Treasurer Bauman and Sergeant-at-Arms Boylan pre-
sent to you for Philomathian.
DELTA , TAU
High on the top of a hill in the Bluffs forest stood a beautiful castle-C. B. H.
or "Old C. B.,', as it was lovingly called, the winter abode of the fairies.
What an abode it was! From September until June, happy little beings might be
seen Hitting about, laughing and frolicking in the gayest possible manner.
An ideal winter night. The amusement hall was filled. Fairies from all of the sur-
rounding woods had been invited to hear a contest between five of the Deltas and five
boys of a similar group.
All at once light strains of fairy music were heard. Then appeared the queen of
the Deltas, Ruth by name, followed by two pages and five each of elfin boys and girls.
What a pretty sight it was. All save one of the maiden elves wore shimmering dresses
of the lily. while she was adorned in the velvety petals of the pink rose.
First came Mary, then Marion j., the fairy rosebud, then Marion S., Genevieve
and Eva. Of course the Deltas would win! But alas, when all was over these little
maids were given only two points, while the boys were given three.
At Christmas time, the woodland elves were once more called to the music hall,
where they were delightfully entertained by Delta Tau story, with recitation and Cilee
Cne never-to-be-forgotten night, the Deltas were proud to send one of their number,
together with some Philos, to a distant wood, Ft. Dodge by name, to engage in a debate
with the High School team of that city.
On the same night a Delta Tau and two Philos met at Bluff Castle and ex-
changed ideas with some elves from the Sioux City Woodlands. Although the fairies of
Bluff forest were a bit unfortunate, at one place at least they were quite sure they won.
In the last great revel, the fairy maidens gained thier victory over the elfin boys.
Two beautiful golden charms were given to the Deltas, while the boys received only one.
Thus in triumph, the fairy maidens of Delta Tau closed the year of I9l l. Never be-
fore had these little beings worked so hard and faithfully for their dear winter home
Council Bluffs High School.

The year l9ll has seen the birth of an organization, different in nature. from
any of the other organizations of the school, and still it runs parallel with them all.
The Dramatic Club was organized during the last semester of the school year and,
while just in its infancy, it has made a name for itself and extended its helping hand
to the Orchestra.
When the Orchestra gave its annual recital, the club assisted by giving a one act
comedy, entitled, "Never Say Die." This was an overwhelming success and proved
that there was really some talent in the club. Mr. Brindley, Mr. Sayles and Miss
Sprague coached and directed the players and deserve to be complimented on their
Next year it is planned to have a regular course of study and analyze some of
the more famous and classical plays, which is sure to be interesting. It is also intended
that the club shall make one or two public appearances, giving some play by a famous
We lose several of our members this year and are sorry to see them go, for they
represent the best that there is in school and their loss will be felt by the entire school.
The members and officers of the club are as follows: President, Theron Gretzerg
Vice President, Grace Gunng Secretary, Eva Bullock: Treasurer, William Max-
wellg Sergeant-at-Arms, Robert Danielsg Ruth Henderson, Mary Chapman, Roy
Mauer, George Spooner, John Long, Lorah Aldrich, Pearl Meiklejohn, Marian Jarvis.

The girls' Glee Club was organized last year and has proved to be a successful
organization. All of the members will agree that they derive a great deal of pleasure as
well as good training from the rehearsals, under the direction of Miss Barr, and their
singing is always highly complimented by every audience they appear before.
The membership is somewhat larger this year than last. All of the girls are either
members of the Delta Tau Literary Society or expect to become members next year.
Those who are not Delta Tau at present are some of the younger girls who have good
voices and are a necessity to the Glee Club, but who could not gain admission to the
Delta Tau this year on account of the membership limit. The members of this year's
Glee Club are as follows: First Soprano-Mattie Green, Ada Spetman, Buryl Colip,
Violet Anderson, Eleanor Fuller, Gertrude Ellis, Cora Quick, Mary Virtue, Mary
Chapman, Ruth Henderson. Second Soprano-Grace Gunn, Hazel Smith, Ethel An-
derson, Marian Jarvis, Mary Aid. Alto-Charlotte Maxwell, Elizabeth Martin, Edna
Blakely, Beth Martin, Merle Blackburn, Grace Hughes.
The first productions of the Glee Club for this year were presented on December
23 in assembly, the Christmas program being in the hands of the Delta Tau. The num-
bers rendered were: Sullivan's "Lost Chord" and "He Eeedeth His Flock."
The brotherhood of the First Presbyterian church honored the Glee Club by asking
them to sing at one of Dr. Luccock's services. Everyone liked the "Lost Chord," so
much that it was repeated at this time, together with several hymns. Miss Barr and the
girls were pleased to be able to grant this favor which was very much appreciated.
Perhaps the Glee Club did its best work on the evening of March 24, when the
orchestra gave its annual concert assisted by the Glee Club and the newly organized Dra-
matic Club. On this occasion they sang three numbers: l. "Cobwebs." 2. "Barcarolle."
3. "My Honeyf' all of which were pleasingly rendered and very enthusiastically re-
ceived, especially the last number.
It is certain that no one has ever regretted the organization of this Glee Club which
has the hearty support and the best wishes of the whole school. .

On Friday evening, December l6, in the Auditorium of the High School, occurred
the eighth annual Inter-Society contest. A large audience of its many friends and pa-
trons were in attendance. First on the program were several selections given by the High
School Orchestra, which were followed by a solo by Miss Mattie Green, one of the Delta
Tau's most accomplished musicians.
Then came the declamations. Miss Marian Jarvis, one of the Delta Tau's best de-
claimers, gave "The Lost Word," by Henry Van Dyke, which was excellently rendered.
The Philo representative, Erskine Mitchell, spoke Lord Chatham's speech in the English
Parliament, on "Affairs in America." But like the year before the Delta Tau came out
Following the declamations came the orations which were so well given that even
the judges had a hard time to decide. Miss Mary Chapman delivered a carefully pre-
pared oration on "Joan of Arc," and Mr. Joe Grason, the Philo's old standby, pre-
sented a patriotic speechon "Our Flag." Only once before have the girls won the ora-
tion, but this time, the oratory of the Philos failed to over-poise the eloquence of the
The question for debate was, "Resolved, That a graduated income tax, with an
exemption of all incomes over S5,000, would be a desirable modification of our present
system of federal taxation." The affirmative was opened by Miss Genevieve Lowry and
followed by Mr. Frank White for the negative. Then in order came Marion Saunders,
Walter Short, Eva Mooney, and Harold Barr. Each speaker was given ten minutes for
constructive argument, and five for rebuttal.
The debate was certainly a good one. The speakers were all well prepared, show-
ing the earnest work and careful training of Mr. Sayles and Mr. Brindley. But con-
trary to the opinion of everyone except the boys, the decision was 2 to l in favor of the
The judges were Dr. Ray of the Second Presbyterian church, Mr. Chapman, secre-
tary of the Y. M. C. A., and Mr. W. H. Killpack, all of this city. President Ruth Hen-

"Philomathian" is now hanging before the loving cup presented by the class of '03.
But the Delta Tau has not given up hope yet, and is only more determined to regain the
cup next year, feeling sure that with the prospective material in view, the boys will again
meet failure, and the girls walk hand in hand with success.

After having been beaten last year by Fort Dodge and Sioux City in a triangular
debate, Delta Tau and Philomathian Literary Societies decided to go them another round
this year. However, both teams again met defeat, but it is a significant fact that the
decision in each case was two to one. At least in the case of Fort Dodge everybody
declared it should have been three to nothing, with the rim knocked, for Council Bluffs.
After all it is not the decision that counts. This could be seen in all the debating teams
of Council Bluffs this year. Under Coach Brindley's efficient teaching each debater got
up with an intelligent look on his face and proved that honest debating is the only kind
of debating in the long run.
To make a long story short, on February 3 the Council Bluffs team, composed of
Ruth Henderson, George Spooner and Roy Mauer, went to Fort Dodge. They were
chaperoned by Miss Sprague, who proved to be a very good one by the way, and ac-
companied by Mr. Brindley and Miss Lucy Spooner, a former star debater for Delta
Tau. It is not necessary to go into details. The judge that voted for Council Bluffs
said that our team had Fort Dodge overwhelmed in argument and delivery. Fort Dodge
won by memorized rebuttals. It may be well to note that while Mauer and Spooner
did excellent work, Miss Henderson was easily the star performer on account of her
masterful work in rebuttal.
At the same time, on the same night the other Council Bluffs team composed of
Bea Tinley, Theron Ciretzer and Kenneth Snyder were showing their mettle. They were
on the afhrmative side and the night before the Council Bluffs negative team showed up
their weak points. It was admitted by all that the affirmative side was the weak side.
Nevertheless the Council Bluffs team made it the strong side on this evening. Miss
Tinley's rapid flow of Irish oratory was a never-to-be-forgotten event. Snyder and
Csretzer also did themselves proud. But all in vain for Sioux City had a girl who was
deliberate and cool. Decision, 2 to l.
The best is always left until the last. On February 24, Philomathian sent a team
to Omaha, composed of Joseph Grason, Robert Daniels and Harry Cherniss. A large
crowd of rooters also went and vied with Omaha in rooting. It was a debate worth list-
ening to. Council Bluffs excelled indeed and the decision came as expected. Three to
zero for Council Bluffs. Crason was a star performer and with great foresight picked
out Omaha's defects and hammered on them. His experience showed up. Cherniss
did wonderful work and his eyes shot forth electric sparks. And Daniels, it was indeed
a second Daniels come to judgment. This decision is the third decision that Philomathian
has won from Omaha.
All three of these debates were on the same question: "Resolved, That a graduat-
ed income tax with an exemption of all incomes below 32,000 per annum would be a
desirable modification of the present system of federal taxation. Constitutionality granted."

The Orchestra, now one of the recognized institutions of the Council Bluffs High
School, was first organized in the spring of l909, but after a few rehearsals it died an
ignominious death on account of the lack of a good conductor.
However, in the fall of l909, the combined efforts of Mr. Reed and several
members of the defunct Orchestra, secured Mr. Henry G. Cox of Omaha, formerly
musical director at Iowa Uni-

Present Arms! Thus do the Council Bluffs High School Cadets salute the Class
of l9I I and wish them a most happy and prosperous future.
Although the company this year was no army, still quality, not quantity, you know.
Every member had a uniform and it was a good looking company that drilled in the
Armory on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Besides, we had an addition this year. With joe Grason as commanding Lieuten-
ant, a signal corps was organized. Grason, with the aid of Sergeant First Class Boylan
and Sergeant Olson, trained his men in the Morse Telegraph Code and the Semiphore
system of wigwagging. This corps will undoubtedly be a great help to the company in
the sham battle at camp.
The company as a whole has had a very successful year. New drills were ex-
plained and practiced so that now the company is experienced in platoon drill and a num-
ber of fancy drills. These made the drills more interesting to the men so that every drill
night they turned out in full force.
As the Class of 191 l takes most of the officers this year, the company next year
will have to fight hard to maintain its existence.
The officers this year were: Captain, Lloyd Goldsmith: First Lieutenant, Arthur
Bauman: Second Lieutenant, Roy Allen: First Sergeant, Stuart Clark, Quartermaster
Sergeant, John Oliverg Sergeants, Otto Gibson, Wallace Vlfheeler, john Long, Harry
Crowlg Corporals, Arthur Douglas, Lynn Alberti, Ed Larson.

This year has been in most respects very successful as regards this branch of school
activities. Both the basketball and track teams have upheld their full share of the school's
honors, and their achievements aroused an exceptional degree of interest in the school
as a whole.
The season was not entirely without disappointments, however, the greatest of which
was the disbanding of the football team. It was all the more deeply felt because, until
the last year or two, Council Bluffs has always held a prominent place among the foot-
ball teams of the state. The cancellation of the schedule after only three games had
been played, was due primarily, to lack of interest on the part of the players. There was
plenty of good material, the overwhelming defeat of Missouri Valley in the first game
showed that conclusively, and one of the best coaches in the state was available, if the
team had only shown the proper willingness to practice.
Basketball was begun immediately after the close of the football season, and in
the series of games which followed, the school was given ample opportunity to display
its loyalty. It was prompt to accept the chance and at every important game the capacity
of the Y. M. C. A. gymnasium was taxed to its utmost by an enthusiastic crowd of
rooters. The spirit was not all confined to yelling, but also found expression in the two
receptions given at the "Y" for the Sioux City and Fort Dodge teams. These were a
source of much enjoyment to all who attended, and as the promoter of them, the newly
organized "Take One" club deserves honorable mention.
Looking back over the season's record we feel a just pride in the results attained,
for the basketball team, playing in almost every instance against teams of years' experi-
ence, was, nevertheless, defeated only by Omaha, South Omaha and Sioux City, and
the track team also established an enviable record. Contrary to usual custom, the dist-
ance men were given a try-out in the fall, by a cross-country run with Omaha High on
Thanksgiving day, which resulted in a victory for Council Bluffs. Douglas Smith out-
distanced all of Omahais team and Council Bluffs also took third and fifth places. More
laurels were gained for the school when a team consisting of Clark, Maxwell, Macrae
and Friedman defeated South Omaha High School in a l,040-yard relay race at the big
indoor meet in Omaha. The results of the inter-class meet were also a credit to the

Preliminary practice was begun early and two games were played before the Christ-
mas holidays. In the first of these the team gave promise of its future worth when it
shattered all precedents by defeating the Alumni 26 to I3.
The early games of the season were remarkable rather for the individual ability and
grim determination to win displayed, than any great knowledge of real work. But a
rapid change began when Miller took charge of the team, and as the season advanced
the work became faster, smoother, and more accurate, until signal practice was gone
through with almost machine-like precision. The results of this improvement were shown
to best advantage in the second half of the Fort Dodge game, when the rapidity and ac-
curacy with which play after play was carried to a successful conclusion, completely be-
wildered the opposing team.
ln all, the twelve schedule games were played and of these eight resulted in victories.
The teams played against included: Plattsmouth, Omaha, South Omaha, Sioux City,
Red Oak, Missouri Valley, Malvern and Fort Dodge.
The line-up of the team was: Robinson, Capt.: Grason, Hunt, Maxwell, Hub-
bard, Ranck and Clark.
Robinson, who captained the team so ably this year, was elected to head next year's
five and with Hubbard, Ranck and Maxwell again in the game and the vacant places
filled with the pick of the younger players, next year should see a team still better qualified
to uphold the reputation of the school. -
The class series this year resulted in a most confusing jumble. At the end of the
usual series no team had a clear claim to the championship and only the Freshmen were
clearly out of the running. As a result several additional games had to be played.
These Hnally resulted in the Sophomores acquiring the title of school champions and the
Seniors, Juniors and Freshmen taking their places in the order named. The Sophomore
team was made up of Crowl, captain: Giles, Lennox, Officer, Pheney and Baker.

The Seventeenth Annual Field Meet of the High School Athletic Association was
held Friday, April 28th, at the Merchants Athletic Park. The meet was a success
financially and the records made spoke well for the school. A 220-yard circular track
had been laid out and a l00-yard straightaway and both were in good condition.
A team was chosen to represent Council Bluffs at the Tri-City meet, consisting
of Friedman, Macrae, Bates, Hunt, Barton, Wilcox, Hubbard, Cleaver, S. Clark, Bau-
man, Harris and Sauer.
The representative track team which will go to the State Meet at Des Moines,
will be chosen from the above members.
The Juniors won the meet with a total of 48 points to the Seniors 42, but the
result was uncertain until the Juniors won the relay race by a margin of a few inches.
Ribbons were given to the winners of the first three places and the winning relay
team was awarded first place ribbons.
Our Cross Country squad defeated Omaha High School in their annual ,run by
a score of 9 to 6. The winners were: D. Smith, first, C. B., l... Ellsworth, second,
O.: S. Clark, third, C. B.: R. Muckle, fourth, 0.3 Elmer Harris, fifth, C. B.
The successful work done by our men on the track is largely due to the efficient
coaching of Professor Pierce. Mr. Pierce is an athlete of high calibre and came to
us well recommended at a time when a leader was needed, and in behalf of the squad
the track captain wishes to tender him their sincere thanks for the work he has done.

t'Hello, jimmy. where you been?" asked Frank Brill of Jimmy Howard as he entered
the formcr's apartment.
"Out perambulatin' around. and say, I met the girl of"--
"Oh, I know what you're going to say. girl of your dreams. Ha! ha! Let's see.
Jimmy. how many girls of your dreams does that make: one at Hong Kong. one at
Berlin. one at Paris and one at every place we stop. How many, Jimmy?"
James L. Howard tas he liked to term himselfl. was jolly. happy-go-lucky and well-
inet. Anybody was his friend, from pauper to millionaire. He was short and breezy.
He had a taste for loud clothes. On this day. hc wore a pair of white serge trousers
and a blue serge coat, a pongee shirt and a red neektie. A Panama hat was balanced
carefully on one side of his head, as he entered Brill's apartment,
"Oh! go on," cried Jimmy in disgust. for he always meant to be in earliest when
speaking of the fair sex. "I am going to Hy up and get mad some of these days. Then
I will get married just to spite you.
"Say, Frank, I call it horseshoes of you to go and get married. and then try to con-
sole me by asking me to be best man. Here we were playmates, went to college together
and are in the firm of Brill 81 Howard helping our governors spend their money. Now
you Hop up and get married. I call it horseshoes. But I'll get even," he ended mys-
teriously with a twinkle in his eye.
"VVhat will you do, Jimmy? Marry one of the girls of your dreams?' inquired Frank
fastening his collar with a twist.
"Say Frank," Olr. james L. Howard could always change the subject when someone
else was getting the best of itj, "going to let me kiss the bride?"
Jimmy took special care to be in the hall peeking around the door. and by these
maneuvers, missed a clothes brush that was aimed at him.
"Well, I'll be in before long," he cried as he left.
"Poor jimmy," Frank mused to himself as he finished dressing. "Gee. but he takes
my marriage hard, and to think I am marrying one of his dream girls."
To tell the truth, Jimmy was taking it hard. They had been better than brothers
ever since they were out of the cradle. Their fathers were partners in a brokerage con-
cern. They never had any worry or trouble. During the winters after they had finished
college. they both worked in the office and during the summer they traveled. They had
hunted in Africa together and toured Europe and Asia. In fact, there was not a country
that could be mentioned but what they could tell some adventure or tale. No wonder
jimmy needed sympathy.
He left Frank's apartment and sauntered around the city musing on the way things
"Brace up old man!" he exclaimed to himself. "You are selfish. You ean't keep
everything as it is. Why, dog-gone you, you are getting to be like your daddy. a dear.
good-hearted, but as sentimental a cuss as ever hit this old ball of fun. hard luck and
trouble. Own up now, old sport, and stick by your motto. that this world is just one
huge joke and unless you take it as such, you will be gray-headed before you have time
to raise a moustache. But I have got to put one good and last joke to my credit.
Something better than telling the sultan's daughter that Frank was after a wife, and
pretty nearly getting poor Frank's head chopped off because he would not marry her."
"Ha, now I have it!" He stopped a niimite and looked in at the window of a
printer's before fully making up his mind. Then shrugging his shoulders as if settling
the question, he pushed open the door and went in. He was closetcd with the manager
for an hour or so and after swearing the printer to secrecy. he came out with a smile
on his face from ear to ear.
It wouldn't be fair to Jimmy to tell what took place until later.
"Be sure now, Mr. Printer, have them in my rooms by 7:30 tonight."
"All right. Mr. Howard, they will be there."
With that jimmy started for Frank's room. "My one last joke on Frank, and it's
good,', he laughed to himself. "Gee! but that girl is a swell looker. By golly she smiled
at me. I
By this time he had reached Frank's place, and turned in.
"Say Frank, I met the"--
"Oh, darn your dream girls, jimmyp I've lost one of the socks of that black pair I
bought and it is only an hour until we have to go down to Maries Help me find it
Frank exclaimed in a flurry.
They hunted high and low, but no sock could be found.
Jimmy stood up after looking under the dresser. crossed his legs and stuck his
tongue in one cheek. "Loan you mine," he said, lifting his pant's leg that concealed a
bright red sock with green snakes embroidered on them.
"This is no time for foolishness Jimmy," cried the irritated Frank. "Run down and
get me a pair."
"What color, green, red, white, yellow, or"--
"Blackl black! you'll run me crazy."
The sock question was soon settled and Jimmy had on a suit more to the occasion
than his former one.
COIHC on, Jim," said Frank, grabbing his hat.
"What time is it Frank?" asked Jimmy, who seemed to be in no hurry.
"Go ahead. I've got to go over to my room a minute. I forgot something. I'll be
So Frank went on. As we all know, this was the eve of his marriage. He went in.
Most all the guests were there. After the greetings were over, he started upstairs. On
the landing he stopped, for a girl was standing there barring his path.
"Marie, you look beautifull" he exclaimed.
"Do I, Frankie, dear? My, I was beginning to think you were not coming."
"Jimmy will be here in a few moments and then we can go ahead. It is a quarter
of eight now." So saying. he passed on into the room reserved for him.
Meanwhile, Jimmy was the busiest man on earth. He went into his room and
found a package by the door. He picked it up. It was about six inches in thickness and
the ends six by four inches. Tearing the cover off of one end, he examined it and
laughed harder than when he was at the printer's.
So taking the bundle, he went down the street and was soon at the home of Mr.
Thomas. Then he called aside one of his old friends that he knew could be trusted. He
told him the secret and put the package in his care.
"Now, Will, don't let anyone see them," he cautioned. "I've got to hustle."
It was not long before everything was placed in readiness for the ceremony. We
will not go into details of it. Suhice it to say that they were married and were now
getting ready for their honeymoon.
"Say, Jimmy, did you arrange for our berth at the depot?" asked Frank.
"Yep," he answered, "and a few other things," the latter to himself.
"What is that package that you hang on to like your life depended on it?" asked
Frank. He had noticed that Jimmy had never let it out of his sight.
"Well," said Jimmy, "to be real truthful with you, it's none of your confounde-l
business. But being it's you, I will tcll you that it may concern yourself later on.
'Nough saidf "
The pair were entering the hack amid the cheers and good-byes that were be-
ing given. Frank turned, "Where is jimmy? Come on, Jimmy, hop in. You are go-
ing with us, are you not.
jimmy got in.
"Now look here. Jimmy," said Frank putting seriousness into his voice. "yon are
going to take this trip with us and no arguments. We have been all over the world
together and never separated. VVhere one could not go, the other dirln't and I'll be
darned if I'll go alonef'
"You're not going alone and I'm not going to go and then have to take care of
you two and act as messenger, baggage smasher and nurse. Another thing, I haven't
any clothes with me."
By this time they were at the station. Jimmy bid them a hurried good-bye and
then turned to the newsboy who seemed to be waiting for him.
"Now, Bill, here's the packageg now remember what I have told you. Carry your
part through and see that the rest do and there is Fifty dollars in it for you. Did you
fix it for their berth?"
"Yep, it won't be ready till twelvef'
"Is the colonists' car on?"
Yep, the porter is taking them into it now. W'ell, I've got to hide. so long."
And the boy jumped on. '
Oh! Jimmy. Oh! Jimmy."
It seems as though things are starting already," Jimmy said to himself running back
to where he saw Frank sticking his head out of the window in the last car.
Say, jimmy. I thought you got us a berth." cried the excited Frank.
"I did," answered Jimmy.
"Come in here a minute."
Jimmy went in.
"This porter says we can't have our berth until twelve, when the fellow that has
ours gets off."
"Well now that's too bad," said jimmy with a wink at the porter. "I guess you
will have to stay in this car until he-"
"Not in this car. oh, nog this looks like a colony of some kind." said Franle cast-
ing a glance over the car.
"Too bad, sah, no mo' seats up in de front, sah. all filled up." said the porter.
and Jimmy slipped him a dollar.
"Well, I guess we will have to stay here, dearie. as we can't get off now."
"Can't-. Hey! Stop the train! I say, I don't Wallt to go! By golly Frank. make
them stop, I haven't got any clothes. I-Oh!" and Jimmy started after the conductor.
"Come back, Jimmy, it's no use, you'1'e going with us now for a fact."
Jimmy began to go through his pockets and finally had all his money in his hand.
How much, Jimmy?" asked Frank.
Ninety," he said with a sad voice.
'AWell. I've got enough for all of us."
But I've got to have clothes!" exclaimed the shanghied one.
I know, I brought enough for your clothes, too. I thought maybe I could coax
you to go at the last minute and I knew you wuoldn't be prepared," said Frank
Guess I'1l go up in the smoker and take a smoke," said Frank.
All right, Frank, I'm going too," said jimmy rising.
"No,', said Frank, "one of us had better stay with Marie. Those two Irishmen
and that Dutchman and Spaniard have been passing the bottle pretty frequently."
"Well now, Frank, you hurry, because I am dying for a smoke." said Jimmy in a
"All right," and with that, Frank went out the door.
He went into the smoker and had been sitting there about five ,minutes when a
voice behind him spoke.
"Hello, Frank," it said.
He turned around and saw one of his friends.
Hello, Tommy, where are you going?"
Up to the lakes for a few days," Tom answered. "Say, there are three of us here
who are anxious for a game of cards. COIHC on and fill out the set."
"All right, I'll play a few minutes, but not very long." So Frank took a seat and
was in good

tried to keep up the conversation but with no thought of what they were
eye was always on the door.
Mfeanwhile the newsboy was assorting his fruit. He had placed his basket of apples
on the box where his eye fell on the package Jimmy had given him.
"Guess we are pretty well startedf he said to himself as he glanced out the win-
dow. So picking up the package, he untied it, bringing a large number of cards to his
view. Picking one up, he looked at it and began to laugh. "Geel I wonder who the
fellow is. I didn't see him get on. Well here goesf' So saying, he started issuing the
cards. He came up to where Frank and his friends were playing. "Here play with
these a while." Frank picked one up and read it.
To All This Card Concerns:
On this train is a newly married couple seated in the car at the rear by mistake.
They are good-natured and are out to take care of all that need care. They have
founded a home for the friendless dogs and cats, and all who have any such will do 'a
favor to the couple by turning them over to them. If there are any ladies with infants
on this train, they will be under no obligations to the couple should they wish to sleep
and leave the baby in their care. Don't be afraid to leave the little one as the lady was
a nurse before marriage and the gentleman is a surgeon. Should you have any troubles,
tell them to the couple as they will know how to sympathize and what to advise. All
the little boys and girls who go up and say, "Papa, give me a nickel," will be heartily
'fWell, I'll be darned. Some more of Jimmy's work for a ten dollar dog," ex-
claimed Frank. "Boys, I've got to go," he said rising.
"What's the matter, Frank?,' asked Tommy.
my berth to
might as well tell you. I was married tonight at eight o'clock. I left
Jimmyf' so he told all that had happened. f'And now he has had these
things printed," he concluded.
"Well, you don't want to go back there now. Jimmy is caught in his own trap
and now let him have his fill," cried one of the boys.
"Yes, but Marie!"
"It would make it all the worse for her and you too, if you went back. Jimmy
got himself into it and now let him get out."
The argument sounded good to Frank and so he sat down again-but not to play.
None of them thought a thing of the game now. They just sat there and. as one of
the boys said, "waited developments."
By this time, the newsboy had reached the colonist's car. Part of the game was
not to look in the couple's direction. nor give them a card, and so he never saw Jimmy.
whose seat was told him that the couple would occupy.
. Alas for poor Jimmy. It was all up now. The boy had distributed cards all through
When the people in the colony car read these cards, there was a general uproar.
At last this quieted down and an Irishman spoke up. "Well, by's, und don't yez think
we'd ought to stip up and shake hands with leddy and ginimanf'
f'Begorra and yez right, Pat," spoke up the other Irishman. With that, the whole
car of people started up.
Marie made a rush for the door and never stopped until she got to Frank in the
Jimmy was left alone.
"Say, Tom," drawled a fellow in the rig of a tramp, "you go to the door and
guard it. People may get inquisitive and want to meet 'em before we shake hands.
Now, Pete, you line the people up by File so's they kin go down on one side and up
the other." .
The next instant Jimmy's hand was seized and for ten minutes it was worked as
vigorously as a pump handle.
All had their greeting.
"You know," said one Dutch woman as she seized Jimmy's hand, "I've think it is just
lovely of you's to take the poor little dogs and cats. It must be romantic. I wish you
would hold my baby a minute," and with that she passed on.
Each one left something for Jimmy to take care of. He tried to explain but could not
get a word out of his mouth unless someone interrupted him.
The hrst Irishman came up, followed by his partner: "Say, Doc, me friend here is
shick, hic, he has somethin, hic, wrong with his mouth. Begorra and he won't tell me
wivver it's the dark brown, midgul brown. hic, er the pale brown taste. I'll lave him with
yez, hic, to dope up," and he went on.
Jimmy sat there probably ten minutes trying to collect his thoughts. Just as he was
going to get up and go out, three or four women ca,me and sat down around him.
"Did yer woman say whin she'd be back Docther?" asked one woman.
jimmy did not answer. '
"Is yer home for the cats situated near here?"
"You know my husband is an awful drinker and I don't know what to do mit him."
Jimmy was getting mad. He looked out of the window. The train had come to a
stop at a small town.
Doctor, was you ever married before? I know how to sympathize with you if ye'
waz. What was yer wife's name before?"----
I'm not the groom, it's allvl
"Oh, yes, I've heard of her, Ina Brown. wasn't she a show actor?"
ijimnxy tried to get up. "Ma, Mammafl and another pandemonium broke loose. He
looked down at the racket. There were two babies on each arm, one in his lap and two
on each leg. The Irishman's lap and legs held four more colored babies. The Irishman
was meanwhile snoring loudly. When Jimmy dropped the babies. the men started after
him and it would have gone hard with Jimmy had not the babies barred their way. He
spied the open window at his side and jumped out head first.
"What's the matter Jimmy?"
Jimmy sat up. There stood Frank and Marie looking down at him.
"Say, Frank, I met the girl of my dreams. I thought you were on that train."
"No, after the racket you raised, we had to get oFf or be joked to death. If I didn't
know you and didn't think you got your money's worth, I'd kick you."
"Go ahead, I will take it cheerfully, but say, Frank, I met"--
"Another one of your Dream Girls?"
"Quite a good sized town isn't it," queried jimmy looking around. "Let's get out of
this. My exit through that car window is drawing a crowd." So saying, they went into
The newsboy on the train had seen them getting off. Spying a baggage man on the
platform, he yelled, "Come here, Al, here's some cards. Give them to the newsboy on
whatever train they get on. Those people right over there," he answered to the baggage-
man's next query.
"By golly, Frank, I had a hot time in there all right!" Jimmy exclaimed.
"Serves you right. VVhere's the rest of those cards?
"On the train. I don't think anyone saw you get off?
In due time a train arrived going in the same direction as the one previously.
jimmy was the first one on and profiting by his previous experience. he made a
straight line for the smoker as his terminal. On the way, however, he stopped as he
heard a voice call his name.
"Jimmy Howard, if I believe my eyes."
"Why, Grace. how did you exer get here? I thought I saw you last in Brazil six
"You did, jimmy, but you see me again. Papa had to come to New York on business
and I came along. I am going up to the Lakes for a few days. By the way, where's
"He is in one of the cars hack of us. He got married this evening and is on his
honeymoon. Are you traveling alone, Grace?"
"Yes," she answered, making room for Jimmy to sit down.
Jimnvy had met Grace Young in South America when he and Frank were touring that
country six months before. When he described her as one of his Dream Girls, Frank had
Jimmy kept making excuses to stay longer every time Frank mentioned going on,
but at last he had to give in. Jimmy had thought of her often and had mentioned going
back several times.
Grace Young, to put it frankly, was a Dream Girl. She was short and slender and
of perfect build. Her eyes were sky blue and always sparkling with fun that set off the
rosy complexion of her cheeks. Her hair was light auburn that, as jimmy expressed it,
"When the sun struck her, it put a twenty-dollar gold piece in the shade."
It seemed to jimmy as if they had only been parted since yesterday.
Frank and Marie were in a car farther back. They had missed jimmy and Frank
mentioned going to look for him. At this, he met numerous protests from Marie. "He is
up to some more of his tricks now and you have got to stay here with nic." So that set-
tled it. Jimmy was for once innocently engaged.
They were talking of things that had happened since their last meetingg that is, the
girl was. All jimmy could do was to sit and watch her.
'fGee, but she is a dream," he would say to himself.
"Who are those boys sitting up there that keep watching us, jimmy?" Grace asked,
becoming annoyed by their winks and smiles.
"Where? Oh, they are some young fellows going to college somewhere. Be careful
and don't look at them. They are always up to something and I think they are planning
something now. Well, I'll ben-
A newsboy had entered the car and was distributing Jimmy's cards.
"What is the matter, jimmy? Did you want to swear? Well, I'll let it pass this time,"
laughed Grace noticing Jimn1y's remark.
The newsboy handed Grace and Jimmy one of the cards and was immediately reward-
ed with a kick. That kick was a had break on Iimmy's part as he knew from the sound
that went up from the college boys.
The cards were met by the people with laughs and exclamations. Everybody thought
by Jimmy's actions that they were the couple.
"People are getting married young now-a-days." remarked one old man to his seat-
mate, taking particular pains for jimmy and Grace to hear him.
"Yes, regular kids. The trouble is their folks don't take them seriously until it has
happened," the other replied. V
"From the loudness of those two old gentlemen, it would seem that they meant that
for us," said Grace laughing.
But Jimmy did not hear her. His attention was attracted by a face peeping around
the seat in front of him. It was looking at him with a grin from ear to ear. jimmy
recognized it as the leader of the college boys.
"Papa," it said in a piped voice loud enough for all in the car to hear, f'Give me a
penny." jimmy made a lunge at the face, but his arm was stopped by the seat only. The
boy had already joined his crowd.
"Did you hurt your hand, papa?" one of them yelled. "Stop the train a minute at the
next station and I'll get some linament and mother can wrap it up."
"Say, dad, got an extra collar button," another asked.
All the passengers that were trying to sleep were awake by this time and were settled
down now to see, as they expressed it to one another, an imitation comedy act.
Jimmy turned to see how Grace was taking it. She had a serious look on her face,
but when she glanced at Jimmy, she could hold in no longer and broke out laughing.
Jimmy did smile.
"Now, I wonder what they are up to," he said to Grace, noticing that all the boys
were getting up and coming his way.
They all walked up and formed a semi-circle from seat to seat around Jimmy and
Grace. Each one had a silly grin on his face and kept looking back to see that no one
barred his way providing he had to make a hasty retreat.
"Sound," commanded the leader.
"Do, me, sol," broke out the bass, soprano and tenor.
The leader turned to Jimmy. "Learning fast, aren't they Daddy?" he asked.
"One, two, singf'
"Father and mother pay all the bills
And we have all the fun."
That was as far as they got. Jimmy jumped up and they broke into two parts. The
first section never stopped until they reached the smoker, the second crowd went to the
dining car, each fearful of pursuit.
This quieted things down for a few minutes, except for a few remarks from the men,
and giggles of the girls and women-but not for long. Anybody that knows anything of
college boys, will say that if the occasion arises to have fun, there will be fun to the end.
And Jimmy knew it.
Just then the door in the front of the car opened and one of the tribe stuck his head
through. "Say, pa. but that was a great Hurry of humanity. I thought I had taught you
better than to get mad before all these people. Have you got over your mad spell yet?
If so, we will come in."
"Honest, pa," said the second. "I'll be as good as if we had company."
If looks could have killed, Jimmy's would have annihilated them.
"Don't look at us in that tone of voice, Daddy," said the third in a pouting voice.
"If your face would freeze that way. the government would put you in a dime museum."
"Hey, Reggyf' shouted a voice at the rear, "is father over his stroke yet?"
'AYes," the other answered. "he says we can come in."
These remarks were all heralded with applause and laughter from the rest of the car.
When the boys from the front came in, each one had something concealed under
his coatg and those at the rear had a filled sack in each hand.
"We raided the dining car," whispered one to the other.
"We raided the smoker," was the answer.
"Boys, I'm ashamed of myself," another said in a low voice. "I took this little doll
away from a baby about three years old and gave her a quarter."
Tying a string around its neck and being careful that no one but the boys could see it,
he put it in his pocket. He then got up, walked back past Jimmy and Grace very inno-
cently. Casting a side glance down at Jimmy's coat pocket, he found it conveniently open
and dropped the doll into it. He never lost a step until he got to the end of the string,
about two yards long. Then, giving the string a tug or two, he sat down in a seat where
Jimmy could not see him and waited. Getting impatient, he pulled the string again, this
time harder, and Jimmy fell to the trap.
He started to put his hand in his pocket and came in contact with the string about a
foot from the neck of the doll, and began pulling. Out came the doll and before he had
thought, he lifted it up before his face where everyone could see it dangling. Again peals
of laughter rang out.
The train was slowing up. The brakeman came in. "Buffalo, Buffalo," he cried and
Jimmy leaned over and spoke in Grace's ear. Then there was an argument until the
train stopped, and she decided to Jimmy's pleasure. i
Meanwhile Frank and Marie had fared well. VVhen the cards were wassed around. thev
laughed with the others and began to ask questions of their neighbors. as everyone else
did. When one of the porters came through the car and answered the numerous ques-
tions, Marie and Frank were relieved to hear that someone else had been suspected.
never dreaming it was Jimmy.
As the train stopped, Grace and jimmy got up to leave the car. "Now, follow close
behind nie, Grace." he said. This seemd to be the signal for the college boys, and they
turned loose. Those who had rushed to the smoker previously. had bought all the rub-
bers and overshoes available. Those that ran to the dining car had bought out the sup-
ply of rice.
"Good by. Father," yelled one as he hurled a bag of rice at Jimmy. It seemed to
jimmy the next few minutes that he had everything coming his way. He did not stop at
the first door to get off. but kept going until he spied Frank.
"By golly, Frank! Now stop your laughing. This is serious. Boys. herc's the bride
and groom." But no one seemed to pay any attention to jimmy. Led by the college
boys. nearly all the passengers were in pursuit. Shoes, rubbers. and rice reigned for the
next few minutes.
"By golly. Frank. aren't you going to help me?"
"VVhy, I don't know you," Frank said with a twinkle in his eye. VVith that, Marie
and he got up and started off the train. Grace and Jimmy followed, with the college
boys and passengers in their wake. As they got off, Frank handed Jimmy a slip of paper.
jimmy read it: "Meet you at the-- ---- Hotel." and with that. they left him and
Lucky it was for the two that the train started, or they may have had more trouble.
As it was, Grace and he were left amid the smiling and sympathizing people standing
about the station.
Marie and Frank arrived at their hotel after a short ride from the depot.
"I wish Jimmy would get married and settle down." Frank mused. "But no use."
They had been at the hotel over an hour and Frank was beginning to worry about
jimmy. "I wonder if he got mad at me." he said to Marie.
"Wl1y no, I don't think he would." she answered.
just then there was a knock at the door. Marie opened it and saw a messenger boy.
"Is this Frank Brill's room?" he inquired.
"Yes," said Frank stepping up. "VVhat is it?"
The messenger boy handed him an envelope and departed. Frank tore it open and
read. "Well, I'll be darned!" That was all he could say.
"Read it Frank?" asked Marie of him.
f'Thof it is 3 o'clock in the morning, and an unusual time to call, we will be up for
congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. james L. Howard."
"VVho did he marry. Frank?" asked Marie.
"I don't know. He was with Grace Young."
In a few minutes Mr. and Mrs. james L. Howard put in an appearance.
"How did you come to succeed in getting married at this time. Jimmie?" asked Frank
as he sat down.
"You know that fellow who crossed to London with us? NVell, he was the clerk. I
had quite a time getting him out until we recognized one another. The minister was
satisfied with ten of my ninety. And now, Frank, you have got four to pay for instead of
three. I'll wear this blamed suit out. Say. Frank, I met-whoop."
"Hal ha!" Frank began.
"Shut up now," said Jimmy. " 'Nough said."
"Well Jimmy, supposing I should play the same tricks on you that you played on
f'Don't Frank," cried Jimmy. "Do you know. that if I ever have the occasion to be
single again, I'm going to get married and then have my honeymoon instead of having
my honeymoon and marriage afterward."

Once upon a morning dreary,
While 1 pondered. weak and weary,
From a sleepless night-before,
While I nodded. nearly napping.
Suddenly, there came a tapping.
As of someone gently rapping,
Rapping on the desk before.
Then l hurried, looked up from my
snooze, only to iind that it was my
neighbor, beating a tattoo on the leg of
his desk with his foot.

Ho stood in the hall at midnight,
The ctlock was striking the hour,
And he trembled when he heard foot-
This naughty boy named Sauer.
But still he bravely waited,
The footsteps still drew near
But when Reed turned the COYHEI
He nearly died of fear.
And now there is a moral
Which you can surely tell,
When you start out on mischief bent,
It, would be just as Well
To know just whom you're dealing with
And not reach forth your hand
And get the head professor
Instead of the Junior hand.
