THE RUBAIYAT OE TI-IE ORACLE BOARD.
XNrite! For the chief who 1'ouses to hard work,
'With many dire threats for those who shirk,
Commands us all to try verse-mongers' art,
Lest dangers for the idle, hidden lurk.
"Oyez! Oyez! Oyez !" to all she cries,
"Bestir yourselves to win a handsome prize!
In verse or prose: mood serious or gay,
Vtfrite ! For you know not whither this hour dies."
Did advertisers rush to us in scores?
Or did we vainly visit countless stores?
Ah! Seek not to disclose this painful truth,
But most of them politely showed their doors!
Did Sophs and Freshmen, and staid Seniors, too,
Beseechus to accept, as but our due, '
Subscriptions to the OR:XCLE, Nought Seven?
Alas ! we cannot say ,tis sz'1'1'cz'!y true !
And did all grades of students, high and low.
Beg to contribute art-work, just to show
Their interest in our book and editor?
Ah, how it wrings our hearts to answer, "No !"
Think! In this College, ere the present age,
How many a youthful, but most brilliant sage,
Did burn much midnight oil in weary work,
Seeking to polish and perfect each page.
And when we, too, Oh, readers! are at rest,
Vlfhere no year-books are published, by request,
Vlfhen you Adelphis Annuals may read,
We hope that you will cry, "Nought Sev'n was best !'

An Unexpected Fleeting
It was observation night in Adelphi, and I, a belated star-gazer,
hurried down the dark stairs to the main hall, where I was attracted
to the study room by a dim, red light. At the entrance to the room I
was handed a card by a man in knickerbockers, whom I recognized as
Shakespeare. In bewilderment I looked to see if he were not in his
accustomed cramped position, but no, his chair was empty. I looked
for the stag', so like Talida in the fairy-taleg for the sleeping maiden
opposite and for the female monopoly of the stag's attention on either
si l of him but in vain- all were Gone even the trustees from the office.
C e 5 1 .5 7
Hoping .to gain some information as to- the whole strange affair, I read
the card in my hand:
"The Association for Mutual Protection invites you to a reunion
and general discussion in the study hall at twelve P. M.
'WVILLIAM S1-IAK13sP13.xR1z, P1'vs1'clw11'.
I entered and attended one of the most interesting indignation
meetings imaginable. The opening address was made by the President,
who confessed that from long sitting he had grown indifferent, both as
to how his plays were interpreted and the Bacon controversy, but he
had been more or less attracted by the rubbering-he said it-of
Apollo, out into the hall, until at last he had sent the hall "boy" to ask
what he wanted. I-Ie had expressed dissatisfaction, so they had decided
on a public discussion of Adelphi. I listened attentively and wrote down
the pith of the requests and grievances:
Shakespeare wanted a pneumatic cushion, fewer draughts and room
The stag desired a drink, as he hadnt had one since he "had drunk
his fill." I-Ie said that that naturally hadn't lasted long, and the drips
from umbrellas on rainy days drove him crazy.
Apollo wanted more attentiong his beauty was being wasted.
Oliver XYendell Holmes objected to living in a garret at the top of
a book-case all his life.
