PROFESSOR DE MOTTE
1. ROFESSOR DE Mo1V11E's great great great grandfather was an Huguenot refugee from France, who
came to Lo11g Island near the close of the 17th century, and established the first professional black-
. s1nitl1 shop on the island. He was known as " Richard DeMotte, tl1e blacksmith of Lo11g Island."
giiviz? The descendents all along the line, have been sober, industrious men, distinctly loyal to America,
and active in all reform work of education, state a11d church. A large percentage have been ministers
,,.Y..ffi' and teachers.
'WMA i Professor DeMotte was born in a Methodist parsonage at VVareland, Ind., in 1848. He enlisted o11
the day he was I5 years old fron1 Rochester, Ind., in tl1e One Hundred and Eighteenth Indiana Volunteers, was honorably
discharged in the following springg was a teacher for two years at Lafayette, Ind., and in 1872 was made principal of the
Preparatory Department of the Indiana Asbury C now De Pauwy University, from which institution he graduated in the
classical course i11 1874. He was at once taken into the faculty and given the chair of Mathematical Physics, which position
he resigned in 1891, to accept a desirable offer of work in a larger Held of usefulness, with the Redpath Lyceum Bureau
of Chicago and Boston. His lecture lists for last season and the present one are larger tl1an those of any otl1er person
in the field.
He received his A. M. degree incursu, and his M. D. and Ph. D., upon the basis of work do11e in Germany, mostly at
Bonn and Heidelberg. He came into the lecture field with the feeling that the A111erican public wa11ts something higher
than mere amusement, and tl1e list of his Gllg9.gC1HG11tS is sufficient guarantee that the better class of our people would
prefer to tl1ink alo11g lines helpful to society, tl1a11 111erely to be amused.
When Professor DeMotte entered tl1e lecture field i11 1891, Adrian was one of his first engagements. He has since
lectured three times in our city, always to crowded houses. Two years ago our people listened, for the second time, to
that grand and most helpful lecture upo11 "Character Building."
Whenever it l1as been possible, Professor DeMotte has visited our High School a11d given our you11g people such talks
as might fall from the lips of a father who is bidding farewell to the son leaving the parental roof for the first
time. He has endeared himself, in so many ways, to the old a11d young alike in our city that OIIC is 11ot surprised to
learn that he has been adopted as a citizen of Adrian, and has been presented with a key to the hearts of his loyal friends.
Long live Professor DeMotte to preach the doctrine of right livi11g, and to inspire the youth of our la11d to the attain-
ment of high ideals.

The Senior Sickle.
Of the Adrian High School.
.....lDubIi5heb bp the 021355 of '99....
gg USTOM, once established, is very tenacious. Sometimes,
indeed, it may lead to pernicious results, but such, it
5 seems,can hardly be the case in regard to the publishing
of annuals by graduating classes.
An annual is read with interest by the alumni, by the many
friends of the institution, and by the general public, as well as
by the students of all classes. In this way the work of a
school is brought to the notice of the public and an impres-
sion, favorable or otherwise, is created by its publications.
To the student the annual, while perhaps a source of much
pleasure and enjoyment at the present time, ought to be
valued greatly in after life, for without it many pleasant
memories of High School days would be lost.
Nearly all the larger schools of the state observe the cus-
tom of publishing an annual of some sort. Adrian High
School has but recently begun this practice, however 5 and, while
previous to this production we have published but two
annuals, we are pleased to note that the SICKLES of '97 and
'98 were equaled by few, and excelled by no High School in
We, the editors of '99, have tried to present as good an
annual as We were able, and one which would not only be of
interest now, but would serve as an acceptable souvenir of
Adrian High School for the year 1899. If we have succeeded
in doing this, we feel that the time and labor spent have not
been in vain. Of its merits you yourselves must judge.
ZITHIN the past school year a sentiment, heretofore
entirely foreign to the walls of the old building, has
arisen among the several classes of the high school.
We have reference tO the clearly defined and somewhat ques-
tionable class spirit which has been manifested throughout
the school year, not by the legitimate and accustomed feeling
of friendly rivalry, but by lawless depredations which at first
committed entirely on class lines, quickly degenerated into
pranks unworthy the term practical jokes, committed by
members of all classes.
We wish here to draw sharply the line between harmless
jokes and the wanton destruction of property, which has
ensued as a result of the earlier rivalry. We have been enter-
tained by samples of both species of humor. The former were
passed over with a tolerant smile by students, teachers and
the public, while the latter gained, as they deserved, only
severest condenmation from all.
All classes were more or less implicated, but it may
rightly be inferred from the increase of this spirit during this
last year that the lower classes took the leading part.
We have nothing to say against the raising of class colors
and emblems, in the right place at proper times, nor do we
object to the manisfestations of class spirit under such circum-
stances. But when these colors are fiaunted as is a red rag
before a maddened bull, with a defiant persistency equaled
only by the great industry exhibited in making new fiags to
replace those destroyed in the frequent melees, such a spirit is
out of place. Such displays are trebly childish and, in keep-
ing with the lowest plane of high school intelligence, when
flags are fiaunted from a church steeple, and from down town
buildings. These actions are unworthy of notice.
AST summer Adrian High School was the recipient of a
very generous gift from the Agassiz Association. The
donation comprised their collection of stuffed animals,
Indian relics, bones, shells, botanical and mineralogical speci-
mens and one of the finest entymological collections in the
state. This fine exhibit now adorns the Senior Room of the
A large case with plate glass front has been placed at one
end of the room, in which are the butterfiies, also the shells, mas-
todon bones and some of the botanical specimens. The shrubs
at the side of the room hold the greater part of the remainder,
while stuffed birds swing and perch everywhere.
This collection might form a neucleus to a much greater,
if only the members of the High School would use the splen-
did opportunity offered. Each thing must have some begin-
ning, be it great or small, and does not this patiently acquired
collection form a very acceptable start for an energetic and
wide-awake Scientific Club, which may take a prominent place
among the High School organizations?
The Annual would be pleased to offer this as a sugges-
tion, that, among those who are interested in such things
C and who of us is notl an association be formed under capable
direction, to go on with the work for which we already have
so generous a start.
"Who misses or who wins the prize,
Go lose or conquer as you can,
But if you fail or if you rise
Be each, pray God, a gentleman."
E each, pray God, a gentleman." It is an easy word
and a pleasant one, but do you all live up to it? Or
are you showing it a little here and there, so little
perhaps, that you hardly notice it until you make comparisons?
A gentleman playing against a gentleman always plays to win.
There is a tacit agreement between them that each shall play
his best, and the best man shall win. If you are a member of
a school team and go into training, don't break faith with
your captain, your fellows and yourself by surreptitious in-
dulgences. This does not mean that if you see some other
fellow breaking the law on the sly you are obliged to tell of
it, nor does it 1nean that you must call him to account, unless
you are the captain. And if you are the captain, and you find
a person breaking a law in spite of your own orders, and you
consider it advisable to put him off the team, don't be afraid
to do it. Gentlemen are not cowards, mentally or physically.
If you are elected captain of a team, read over your rules,
and note exactly who are allowed as contestants by those
rules, not by the customs of some predecessor, not by what
you think some rival will do, but by the rules themselves.
Having done that, never let a thought enter your head of
making use of any man not cleanly and clearly eligible. You
will save yourself many a future worry if you start fairly by
looking into the record of every candidate at the outset. It is
your duty to know that every one of your players is straight
The boys of the school should attend the games and cheer
their team, and in this way encourage them to put forth their
best efforts to win. But they should also be courteous to
their rivals and not cheer an error made by them. Moreover,
if your rivals make a good play, you should cheer them and
conceal any chagrin you may feel at the loss it may be to your
side. And after a winning game, there is no reason why you
should not do plenty of cheering, but there is plenty of reason
why you should not make your enjoyment depend upon in-
sulting those who have lost. Show that behind the fun there
is the instinct and cultivation of a gentleman's son, and that
the enthusiasm, although it may be a bore to those who fail to
kindle to it, has nothing of the vicious element, and is
thoroughly innocent of intentional offense to anyone.
.NE subject relating to the High School is gradually
becoming quite important. For many years the country
people have been coming to the High School to obtain
a better education than is offered in the rural districts.
The advantages afforded by the High School are readily
recognized. In the district school the opportunity for the
pursuit of study is limited. There, only the rudimentary
branches are taught. Little or no instruction is offered in
literature or history. The language work is confined largely
to the oral use, by pupils and teachers, of much abused
English. For a right appreciation of literature and history
one must live among men. Such conditions are even more
necessary in acquiring a language. Therefore it is only natu-
ral that the foreign pupils should appreciate the privileges
granted them even more than their school-mates, who have
been accustomed all their lives to skillful teachers and
improved methods. In the city schools so much knowledge
has bee11 presented, even though in an interesting manner,
that the pupils' minds are actually surfeited, and their excel-
lent opportunities are not fully appreciated, while all the
new ideas are eagerly grasped and assimilated by those whose
advantages have been limited.
Over against the advantages rendered by the High School,
and almost as important, is the benefit resulting to the High
School from these same pupils. They have come inspired by the
study of nature. They have climbed the hills, forded the
streams, and wandered through the woods. They know how
the grain grows, how the birds build their nests, where and
when to find all kinds of Wild flowers. Another fact regard-
ing the country pupils is not to be overlooked. They are
original. Coming from different parts of the country, they
are, so to speak, representatives of their respective vicinities.
They reveal the ideas, opinions, beliefs and customs prevalent
among their neighbors. Representing various communities,
these students differ not only from the city pupils, but also
from one another. Originality is never too common, and the
city pupils, who have been gradually becoming more and more
alike during their association in the grades, are not slow to
realize this fact. They appreciate variety, although they may
call the odities " countrifiedf'
The benefit which each class derives from this contact of
city and country is also of great importance. The urbanity of
the city tends to modify and refine tl1e rusticity of the coun-
try youthsg while simple honesty and straightforwardness
have their effect upon polished city life. The city and coun-
try C0lll6 to realize their close relation and mutual dependence.
They have more in common than formerly, more knowledge
of, and more interest in each other. Through the contact of
these two elements in our High School, the city pupils are
strengthened and come to recognize the true worth of their
associatesg while the country people go back to their homes
fully equipped to become leaders in their neighborhoods. It
is to be hoped, therefore, that this custom, so beneficial and
helpful, will continue in our High School. E, M, F,
QE love our High School and wish it the highest success.
It is for the interest of all concerned with this insti-
tution that such courses of study be offered as may
prepare the students for whatever is to follow graduation,
whether a college education or a business career. For either
course of action Greek is of great value. To the student hav-
ing a college course in view it gives not only culture but also
the necessary preparation for college Greek.
The Greeks were a great, grand peopleg a creative, not
an imitative race. To them nearly all the marks of the civili-
zation of to-day can be finally traced. Aeschylus, Sophocles
and Euripides were the originators of the dramag Socrates,
Plato and Aristotle were the world's greatest philosophers,
and little has since been added to their reasoning. Prom
Homer we get our conception of the epicg from Alcaeus and
Sappho, our lyric poetry. Xenophon, Thucydides and Her-
odotus were famous historians. "T he Ten Attic Orators"
have been the study of all aspirants for forensic fame. If
such are the products of the Grecian race, their language
must be worthy of attention, for a great people cannot live in
a small language. We cannot afford to miss this study which
is one of the most precious heritages of posterity. But as a
botanist goes directly to the fields to study the flowers, so we
must go to the Greek language itself to learn its fullness of
life and beauty.
Our graduates have keenly felt their disadvantage in not
being able to enter the first course in our colleges and univer-
sities. The failure of Adrian High School to meet require-
ments is not owing to a lack of any science, but rather to
the absence of Greek. The value of Greek is appreciated by
the leading High Schools of the state, and Adrian must take
second rank because of the fact that this important branch of
study is not offered. Ours is the largest High School in the
state without Greek. Not only will the students of the High
School deeply regret their inability to pursue this study, but
the High School itself will eventually be the loser. For for-
eign pupils wishing to attend some school higher than their
own, will seek for the best-for an institution that offers all
courses of study. "Mahomet had to go to the mountain
because the mountain would not come to Mahometf'
The added reputation to our High School would more
than compensate for the extra expense incurred by the intro-
duction of Greek. If Greek, together with a class in French
or German, could be started alternate years, rather than each
year, scarcely any additional expense would be incurred.
It is generally conceded by Latin students that a knowl-
edge of Greek is absolutely essential to a thorough mastery
and appreciation of Latin. It would seem the student pursu-
ing four years of Latin, undergoes great hardship in not being
permitted to study Greek. A majority of the present senior
class have studied Latin in our High School.
If the reasons for the existence of the Latin are sufficient
for its future retention inour High School, is there not an
inconsistency in longer delaying the introduction of the Greek,
a knowledge which is so necessary to a complete classical
the leading American High Schools of the present day
the subject of United States History is receiving more
TE thought and consideration than formerly. Wlieii we
consider that the stability of this republic and the progress in
the world of American ideas and American principles depends
upon the knowledge and intelligence of our people, we must
hail with delight this remarkable enthusiasm for and interest
in our national history. Gur safeguard as a nation is the in-
tense patriotism of our people. The best method of perpetuat-
ing and increasing this love of country is by enlarging our
knowledge of American history. Of all the nations that have
existed from ancient times to the present day, the jews alone
have preserved intact the spirit of nationality and of patriotic
devotion, and this despite the fact that of all peoples the
Jews have been most cruelly and most vindictively persecuted.
What is the explanation of this marvelous vitality of Judaic
patriotism? Of all men the Hebrew is, and always has been,
most thoroughly versed in his national literature and history.
His religion, his philosophy, his thoughts, his tastes and
desires, his very existence are all involved in this history of
his race. And, as a result of this, the Hebrew is the most
patriotic of men.
The best fuel with which to sustain the fires of patriotism
is that afforded by the great facts in our American history.
But this knowledge does much more than preserve our love of
country. Ignorance of the common people has been the most
potent cause of failures in former attempts at self-govermnent.
That nation which, in dealing with the problems of the present
disregards the past, must and ought to be disregarded of the
The American Republic will advance in proportion as our
people come to know more of our history and use their knowl-
edge in dealing with those problems wl1icl1 their rights and
duties as American citizens require them to consider.
JOHN W. WELCH, Pnmcapnl..
john W. Welcli, the present Principal of Adrian High
School was born at Canandaigua, New York, in July, 1872.
He comes of a literary family, his father having devoted his
life to the lecture platform, both in the East and NVest. Mr.
Welcli entered the common schools of his native state at the
age of nine, afterwards coming to Michigan, where he has
completed his education. He entered Albion College in 1889,
completing his High School work during that year. At
the close of his junior year there, he entered the University of
Michigan, from which he has graduated and also taken grad-
uate work. His special branches of study werelanguage, his-
tory and economics. Vlfhile at the College and University
also, he took a leading place in both athletic and literary
Since his graduation, he has served as principal at Niles
for two years, at Jackson for a like period, and has now com-
pleted his first year at Adrian. NVe hope it will be the first of
many. In '96, at the close of his service at Niles, he married
Miss Iidith Dissette, of Albion. Last summer he taught here
in the Teacher's Institute, and he expects to continue the
work during this summer.

HISTORY, according to Suley, grat-
ifies the curiosty of the reader about
the past, modifies his views of the
present, and his forecast of the fu-
Every organization has a his-
tory. In some instances it is a noble
one, and one of which its makers
may well be proud. Gur attention
is usually directed to the exploits of
great men and the rise of nations
form petty sovereignties to world powers. We seldom think
of the histories that are being formed from day to day by the
organized classes in our public schools.
It will prove interesting without doubt to those who have
not been associated with us during our life in the High School
to learn something of our rise from obscurity in the grammar
school to an enviable place of prominence among the powers
which have dominated the halls of "Old Central" during the
past four years.
While we were yet a comparatively obscure organization
in the grammar school, the marked advancement which we
had made in literary pursuits had been noted by the enlight-
ened bodies which had gone before us. For some years we
had been looking forward to the time when we should reach
that degree of excellence which would enable us to cross the
divide and establish a republic of our own in the broader ter-
The sunnner of 1895 was a long one for our little band,
but at last our hopes were realized, and the day which was to
become a landmark in our lives was at hand. The doors of
"Old Central" opened before us, and what was to become the
famous "Class of '99" commenced its campaign.
In base ball and foot ball, as well as in literary work, we
had had some experience, so that on entering the High
School we were immediately considered capable of taking an
active part in both literary and athletic circles.
During our Freshmen year our forces were divided, the
girls being placed under the watchful eye of Miss Smith,
while the boys were assigned to the care of Miss Sperry. As
a class we were possessed of that happy gift of independence
which is necessary to success, and when we were called upon
to march into chapel for the first time, we did it with all the
dignity and self-assurance that we could muster up, thus gain-
ing the favor and admiration of the upper classes. Mr. Curtis
was our principal then, and gave us a most hearty welcome.
After his pleasing address, we went to our respective rooms,
and at last realized that we were indeed members of Adrian
We certainly commenced this new period of our history
under the most auspicious circumstances. Our forces were
large, and a more active, energetic and ambitious company of
young people is seldom seen. We had not been settled in this
new territory very long when it was deemed advisable for us
to organize. Our first general assembly was held in October
of 1895, at which time Clarence Wilcox was elected president
and VVilfred Shaw secretary. Our meetings, of which we had
but few during our Freshman year, were in keeping with our
position in the High School. The dignity a11d strict observ-
ance of parliamentary law were extraordinary, apple cores,
erasers and umbrellas playing an active part in the spirited
arguments which often arose.
VVe allowed the first winter to slip by without a class
sleigh ride, but in the following June joined the other classes
in a picnic at Sand Lake. It is needless to say that this was
one of the most enjoyable events of the year, and did much
towards strengthening the bonds of friendship between the
classes. Soon after this came the long summer Vacation,
which we thought had been earned by faithful and diligent
When September came again and the mandatory clang of
the bell was again heard, we returned to our duties, not as
Freshmen, but as second year students. Many changes had
been made: Mr. Curtis had been elected Superintendent of
Schools in our city, and Mr. Stratton D. Brooks had been ap-
pointed Principal of the High School, the position Mr. Curtis
had occupied for seventeen years. Several days passed before
we had adapted ourselves to our new surroundings, but very
soon matters connnenced to move along smoothly.
At the outset of this new school year, the strength and
worth of 'QQ became more noticeable than ever. We were
strongly represented in both literary societies and in the foot
ball team. In social events the Class of '99 took no back
seat. We were rapidly growing out of our semi-barbarous
state and taking upon ourselves an enlightened appearance.
Outside of the general course of events, the first semester
of our Sophomore year was a quiet one. The first snow
storm was late in coming, but as we had allowed one winter
to pass over our heads without a class sleigh ride, extra efforts
were made to have one on this occasion. Roy Beal announced
that his home, seven miles west of the city, could be had for
the taking, and to that pleasant place we made our way on as
beautiful a winter's night as could be asked for. Arriving
there, we were ushered into the dining room, where we did
ample justice to an oyster stew. The evening was passed in
playing games and dancing, and at an early hour the next
morning we departed for home.
In the spring term the officers who had conducted affairs
for a year and a half stepped down, and in their stead Sadie
Edwards became president and Chas. Morden secretary.
The next important event came in June. Again we com-
bined with the other classes of the school for the annual picnic
at Sand Lake. This was as pronounced a success as it had
been the year before.
When next we assembled in the class room it was to com-
mence our Junior year, and the second half of our sojourn in
the High School. VVith the advent of the third year we were
obliged to lose from our number some of those who had been
with us from the earliest days of our school life. Among
them xx ere Jennie Moreland, Charlotte Lane, Edna Culver and
Percy Wines. Their leaving was a serious blow to us and one
from which we have never fully recovered. XVhen one enters
upon his third year in the High School, he begins to feel his
importance. It is then that he realizes that he will soon
occupy the middle east room, the room upon which every
Freshman looks with eyes filled with awe and wonderment.
It was a pleasant and prosperous year for us, though not an
eventful one. Aside from the animal sleigh ride in january
and the picnic in june, nothing of importance affecting the
class as a whole took place, though the nmnerous clubs in the
school, the histories of which must ever remain unwritten,
made life interesting for those desiring amusement.
In the autunm of 1898 we entered upon our fourth and
last year in Adrian High School. We assumed our rank as
Seniors gracefully and, as Seniors generally do, made ourselves
an example of excellence for the lower classes. It was not
long before it became evident that the younger generation
was an observing one and, from present indications, we may
expect worthy successors.
We were now entirely independent of all classes and
factions in the school--a little nation by ourselves. Settled
as we were in a room of our own, with Miss Louise B.
Stickney as our mistress, we were prepared to spend a
pleasant and profitable year.
Mr. Brooks had accepted a position as superintendent of
a large school at LaSalle, Ill., and Mr. Welch, formerly of the
Jackson High School, had taken his place as our principal. In
coming to our school, Mr. Welch had a difficult position to fill.
His predecessor, Mr. Brooks had been a very popular teacher,
and some of the students, principally the boys, were at tirst
rather disposed to feel unkindly towards our new principal
when he enforced stricter rules than had been customary, but
at the present time we are pleased to state that these same
boys are to be found among Mr. Welch's warmest friends.
We commenced to lay plans for the year early in September.
During the third week of that month a business session of the
class was held, at which time officers were elected for the year.
Clarence Wilcox was again chosen chief executive, showing
the high regard in which he is held by the class. At the
same time Hattie Rowley became secretary, Jerome Moran
treasurer and Mr. Case sergeant-at-arms. Mr. Case was
obliged to leave school soon after his election, and Leon Treat
became sergeant in his place.
We had decided to issue an annual at commencement, and
in October held another session for the purpose of choosing
the board of editors. This was an important step and
demanded the most careful attention and consideration of the
class. As a result, an exceedingly competent body was
chosen, and with Robert Park as editor-in-chief, and Wilfred
Shaw as business manager, the two latter having been
appointed by the teachers of last year, the class of ,QQ was
prepared to issue a fine volume. Miss Grace Langdon, who
had gone to Europe to live just before we became Seniors, has
been our European correspondent, and has written many inter-
In December, as in the winter of our Sophomore year, we
enjoyed a sleigh ride to the home of Roy Beal, and it was a
success in every particular.
On the evening of March gd, our class gave a social in
the High School room, the proceeds of which, together with
the amount realized during the year from general taxation,
were sufficient to defray all our graduating expenses. This, of
course, was very gratifying to the class, but our joy over this
success could 11ot be compared with that which we experienced
when our business manager, Wilfred Shaw, added to our lau-
rels by winning the local oratorical contest.
Warm weather was now rapidly coming upon us, class
day participants had been selected, and preparations, as far
as possible, had been made for commencement. We had been
greatly honored by securing Prof. DeMotte to deliver our
commencement day address, and the Rev. Mr. Jones, of the
M. P. church, to preach our baccalaureate sermon. The long
looked for time was S0011 at hand. The last few weeks of
school were short, but exceedingly busy and anxious ones for
the members of the class of '99. Occupied, as we were, in
straightening out all back accounts, and preparing ourselves
for commencement, it will readily be believed that we were
thankful when examinations were finished.
We have 11ow finished our campaign in Adrian High
School. We are prepared to launch out i11to a broader and
newer field. With memories of our school life which will
ever remain dear to us, and in bidding farewell to the old
school, we wish those who may follow us all the happiness
and prosperity which we have enjoyed during the past four

IN 1789 occurred the ship-wreck of
the "Adventurer," of Newcastle.
It's destruction is noticeable in the
history of ship-wrecks because it
marked the beginning of a new era
for seamen. So few were the con-
veniences for such an emergency,
that 110 relief could be given the
storm-tossed vessel. Thousands of
the coast people stood upon the
shore and looked on helplessly, while it was dashed to pieces.
The whole crew perished.
The story of this disaster spread widely, and the
public sympathy was aroused in regard to ship-wrecked
seamen. Under the excitement of this calamity, steps
were immediately taken that such an experience of pit-
eous helplessness might not be repeated. Premiums were
offered and models of boats were presented. Thus the life-
boat came into existence. The first invention is 11ow so
improved that it is almost indispensable along the coasts.
The life-boat of to-day is built of timbers, strong and light,
and is so arranged that it has the power to keep afloat, to
right itself, if upset, and immediately to discharge itself when
filled with water. The winds and waves are powerless against
it. When any other boat would be overwhelmed by the del-
uging waters, this craft rises triumphant, and sweeps on to
the rescue. Thus, after many attempts, the requirements of
the complete and perfect life-boat of the real sea seem to be
But there are other life-boats which ride upon another sea
whose waters rise and surge, whose shores are rocky, and
whose reefs are high. Our life-boats toss upon the vast and
boundless sea of time. This wonderful expanse is dotted with
boats differing in size and form and hue. The young are
dancing in skiffs upon the " pellucid shallowsf' The boats of
those just beginning 1ife's battle are tossed from their chains,
and strike out gallantly from the shore. Each is seeking
a boat which will carry him safely, and, perhaps, grandly over
the waters which lie before him, a boat which shall be to him
a true life-boat.
The first which appears gliding by is a boat of Wealth.
Its prow of burnished gold fiashes in the sunlight. Many
look with envy upon the fair ship which bears the owner to
every clime and gives to him its luxuries-to lands where
beautiful flowers bloom, where the waters of the fountain
play, and where the sculptor shapes the unhewn marble into
living statues. It is also strong to brave many storms assail-
ing character and reputation, for gold can " cover a multitude
of sins." But the sky finally darkens, clouds riven by flashes
of lightning, hover above the once prosperous ship. Deprived
of the former armor-wealth, it cannot withstand the fierce
blasts, and is swept away in the midst of a financial storm.
This cannot be the true life boat.
But another is seen riding upon the surface. In the dis-
tance it appears like a shell hanging upon the feathery crest of
a wave. As it iioats idly nearer, we discern bright banners
waving from its mast. The sound of merry voices, and the
music of harps are borne from the deck. Gay forms flit
about. Such is the boat of Pleasure. Its occupant has no
aim and no plans for the future, and therefore neglects to
guide his ship from the coming dangers. In the midst of his
folly his frail bark strikes the reef and is instantly shattered.
Still another boat passes before our view. There are few
like it upon the entire sea, for it is the boat of fame, and the
goddess is sparing of her brilliant gifts. The sails are
unfurled wider and still wider, and the ship speeds over its
way so swiftly that it seems scarcely to touch the surface. It
escapes all obstacles and pursues its course so easily that the
world gazes in admiration. Yet this mad career is finally
checked when, by fair means or by foul, he who guides it
seems almost at his goal. The waves of popular opinion,
once so calm, now surge and with one vast billow the boat of
Fame is gone.
The next boat to appear is that of Knowledge. It is not
boastful, but quietly asserts its strength and power. Pearls
of priceless value glisten in the sunlight. The helmsman sails
through waters traversed long ago or seeks for new paths, dis-
covering new mysteries. Still, though much to be desired,
there is a storm which even this can never hope to outride-
the last, the final storm of life. Let us look further for the
model life-boat which is to resist and overcome all dangers of
Yonder another is moving upon the waters, so light and
so firm, it seems as if it were made to pass through every
storm and to cope with every billow. No fiaunting colors are
displayedg it does not need them for every part is fitted to
every other, making it an object of grace and beauty. By
day it sparkles with a lustre unseen before, by night its
radiance is still brighter. Clouds of persecution gather and
burst in fury over it, but it is not wrecked. In the darkest
nights alld fiercest storms of adversity the trusty pilot guides
it over the deep waters, as it is now borne to a billoW's crest,
now engulfed in its trough, and finally he brings the boat
safely into the harbor. This true life-boat, unlike the other
boats on life's sea, is free for all who choose to launch it. It
is safe, no storm can harm it. It has been prepared by Him
who walked upon the waters and said to the raging billows,
"Peace, be still!"
Slowly the streets ofthe city
Are rid of their busy throng,
Hushed is the noisy clamor,
And the Work of the laborer, done.
Silently night descends
And enfolds in her loving embrace
The countless thousands of toilets-
The bread winners of our race.
Quiet broods o'er the city,
Rest glides into each home g
Sleep comes to tired mortals,
For another day's work is done.
Yet not so does restful slumber
Close the eyes of every one,
For in one low raftered room
The weaver weaves on and on.
Pale is the face, and sad
From many a sorrow and care,
Yet beneath her skillful fingers
Grows the pattern wondrously fair.
'Twas a curtain of exquisite texture,
To be made for the Prince of the land.
In months past this service of love
Was entrusted to this weaver's hand.
Now the last day is come,
Now is the hour drawing near
When the care-wor11 toiler must bow
To her master in reverent fear.
With the greatest of care and patience,
Must the woman guide the loom,
That the morrow may find it completed-
Made ready for his royal home.
How deftly she plies the shuttle,
As only an artist can g
Then reversing, continues the motion,
And repeats it again and again.
Prettily mingle the colors,
As in the design they are blended 3
Pleasing beyond compare,
The beauty the pattern presented.
United in charming effect
Are the many varied hues,
The lightest tints and the shades,
Dainty pink to the deepest blues.
But, ah! the thread has broken:
Yet 'twill be mended with care,
And the Prince, admiring the grace
Of the piece, worked out with care,
Scarce will notice the tiny blemish,
Will o'erlook the little fault,
As he views with kindest approval
The curtain so wondrously wrought.
Again and again, threads are broken,
But each is mended with skill,
Till at last the piece is completed,
And the weaver awaits her lord's will.
Day dawns, and the brightness of morning
Has hope in its every ray 5
Seems whispering to the weaver,
"Woman, the Prince comes this day."
There's a knock at the door of the cottage,
And with reverence humble and meet,
She receives 'neath her roof the great Prince
And the curtain she spreads at his feet.
Slowly he drinks in the beauty,
And feasts on its lovliness fair 3
Then raises his kindly glance,
Till it rests on the weaver there.
'LWoman, well have you done,
And will have for your toil due rewardf,
But e'en as he speaks these kind words,
She knelt at the feet of her lord.
Master, do not speak so,
I would it were better made,
I would 'twere without one blemish,
Faultless in each tint and shade.
But you have not seen that flaw,
And the thread has been broken here g
And there is another defect,
Tho' I fixed each, as I thought, with care.
"There the colors are not so well blended g
Many another fault I see g
Heaven knows how hard I have tried,
Pray, be not angry with mef'
Then turn not away, but in coura
Low bows the head of the weaver,
Tears come to her heavy eyes,
Then the Prince addresses the woman,
And gently he bids her arise.
l'Alas! you see each imperfection,
The smallest fault and break 3
But in one whole pattern of beauty,
Should I censure for one mistake?
" Patiently have you labored,
Toiled on with unceasing care,
To reprove for a snap of a thread
Would indeed be unjust and unfair.
Each one of us is a weaver,
Guiding the looin of his life,
Weaving in light and shade,
Weaving in joy and strife.
And whether the warp of our lives
Seems dark in its shadow and gloom
Or bright in the sunshine of peace,
'Tis a heavenly plan-not our own.

GRATIDN-"Night Brings Out the Stars."
Samuel Roy Beal.
j c or WHEN we judge events of which we
i have had no part in the creation,
we are prone to consider them sim-
ply from their outward appearance
or apparent effect. He who has in-
herited a vast fortune cannot ap-
preciate the cost and self-denial in-
volved in its accumulation. The
universal love of fame and the gen-
H eral desire to be known of men has
likewise prejudiced public estima-
tion regarding the relative importance of different epochs
of history. A certain epoch is accounted successful by the
number of human stars in its history. With what trembling
hands and eager eyes we turn the pages of that period of his-
tory wherein is recorded the deeds of Napoleon, Washington
and Lincoln. There is hardly a school boy who does not
have the names of these men constantly held up to him as the
goal for his ambitions. But let us examine the periods in
which these men lived, to decide whether such periods are
really as successful as they seem, whether they are times in
which we ourselves would like to live.
The stars of the historical, like those of the celestial uni-
verse, may be grouped into a few great constellations. The
stars of the first constellation appearing way back in the hazy
dawn of history, are so dim and indistinct that we know but
little about them. Among the brighter of this group are
Moses, David, Solomon, Sargon, the Pharaohs of Egypt,
Cyrus the Elder, Darius and Xerxcs. The second constella-
tion appears between five and three hundred years before
Christ. In this group may be mentioned Miltiades, Themis-
tocles, Pericles, Philip of Macedon, Alexander the Great,
Demosthenes and the Ptolemies of Egypt. A little later comes
the great Roman constellation, Scipio, Marius, Sulla, Pompey,
Julius Cmsar, Augustus Caesar, and the Carthaginian,
But let us hasten to that modern constellation of stars in
which we are most interested, with which we are best
acquainted. Here we find Napoleon, 'Wellington Nelson,Bis-
marck, Washington, Grant, Sherman, Burke, Patrick Henry,
Lincoln, Webster, Calhoun and Clay. These are brilliant
stars, and their native countries, in their pride of vanity for-
getting the cost, are proud to contribute their names to the
world's history. But let us stop to consider the tremenduous
loss that must be sustained to create even one of the least of
these. Consider the homes they have made desolate, the
widows they have caused to mourn, the numberless
orphans they have created. VVould any of us be willing to
live in the dark, bloody period just before the rise of Napoleon,
times when neither life nor property was safe, a period which
drained France of its very life blood, times when men were
rulers one day and guillotined the next. Yet out of this ter-
rible night flashed the dazzling meteor, Napoleon. Wellington
and Nelson cost the British nation the flower of her manhood
for the privilege of putting their names in history. The great
Chancellor, Bismarck, has been aptly called "The Man of Blood
and Iron." His own words, "I have caused the death of
eighty thousand meng eighty thousand widows may justly
cry to me for bread," aptly describes what it cost the German
nation to place this star in the world's iirmanent.
The names Washington and Patrick Henry are syn-
onymous with the Revolutionary War. With Washington is
associated Valley Forgeg with Patrick Henry, the Stamp Act.
The names Webster, Calhoun and Clay suggest the turbulent
times preceding the Civil War: times of sectional jealousies
and mighty forensic strifes in Congress' A little later comes
the dark, cloudy Civil War, a war in which one part of a
nation is desperately trying to destroy the other-father fight-
ing against son, brother against brother, the very home
divided against itself. Yet out of this terrible night shine
forth the bright stars, Lincoln, Grant and Sherman. It is
impossible to see the stars except as the world is wrapped in
darkness. Lincoln, Grant and Sherman would never have
become visible stars but for the Civil War.
While we do not see the stars in the day time, will any-
one doubt that they are still shining on? The darker the
night, the brighter the gleam of the stars, the darker the
period in history, the more brilliant and the more numerous
But let us consider some period in history in which few
bright stars are visible, such as the reign of Queen Elizabeth.
The reign of good Queen Bess is one of the most prosperous
and progressive in English History. The reign of Queen
Victoria is an equally good example. The stars of either
period can be numbered on the fingers of one hand. To bring
the example nearer home: take, for instance, Gen. Grant's
administration. No administration has bG611 more uniformly
successful than this, yet the number of stars in this period is
very small. These were times when no man was especially
great, but when every man was truly great.
The question is often asked: "Do we have capable men
among us at the present time ?" In answer I would say, "Do
you expect to see the stars in the day time ?" It is just as
reasonable to look for stars while the sun is shining as to look
for history making men in prosperous times. I do not mean
to infer that social upheavals and wars are unnecessary, but I
wish to emphasize the fact that the number of stars in a
period is no criterion by which to judge of the prosperity of
that period. We would hardly wish for night simply that we
might see the stars. The stars are ever shining, but the glori-
ous sun of happiness and prosperity, at the present time, dulls

PALMISTRY has been studied, horo-
scopes coniigurated, the rules and
principles of phrenology declaimed,
in fact researches have been made
into all scientific lore, each effort
seeking the same goal, the portrayal
of the future. For weeks I have
meditated o11 this question, have,
indeed, subjected it to a logical
course of study, but not until last
night did I attempt its proof. I have been reasoning in some
way like this: suppose that all the people whom one will
meet during life be held together by an invisible bond of
mutual attraction, that in the mind of each be imprinted his
own career and the character and vocations of all those with
whom he comes in contact, then if something could picture
out these personalities, thus making the mind's thoughts com-
prehensible to the mind itself, the future could be read like an
open book. Last evening, preparing this miniature cuvette,
which contains a waxy substance of great reflective power, I
attempted Cby way of an experimentj to read my own destiny.
After I had gazed into the depths of this vessel a few seconds,
an image began faintly but clearly to appear. just then, how-
ever, the door of my room was thrown open and an intruder
rudely broke i11 on my musings. Now I shall take up my
work agam and endeavor to read my own fate. If successful
in this task, I shall then look for the destinies of my several
W' hat is this I see? Can it be possible that I've discovered
a pathway into the future? Is it-yes, it is--a likeness of
myself g but it seems fading away. I can now distinguish
only its faint outlines. Our theory, however, is an established
fact. The future can be read. My own destiny I've failed to
see, but now, O Muses, picture to me the fates of the Class
A picture becomes clearer and clearer before me: a
room in an old tenement house such as suggests foul air unfit
to breathe, and outside-a hall, dark and dingy, reached only
by three or four iiights of narrow, dusty stairs, waving and
creaking beneath even the lightest tread. In one corner on a
rude pallet of straw lies a child whose pale, wan face looks
appealingly into that of a man kneeling beside her. This
man is Wilfred Byron Shaw, a physician who, while many of
his patients are of high social rank, yet loves to wander down
into the slums of the city and relieve a portion of the suffer-
ing which attends such a place.
This image fades. Now I behold an auditorium crowded to
overflowing. The curtain rises and with majestic stride
Mlle. Greene marches to the footlights. XVith head thrown
upward and pose self-assured she stands before them. The en-
tire feminine portion of the audience bend forward with eager
expectation, for she is the long heralded speaker on Woman's
My curiosity increases. Another scene appears: asniall
but prettily furnished room, as much like a sitting room as
one for study, in it are Miss Lucy Galloway and Adeline
Dyer, surrounded by a group of little blind children whom
they are teaching.
This also vanishes. Next I behold a faculty meeting
of some university. Prominent among these men is Roy Beal.
Yes, at another glance, I can readily see he is president of the
institution. What a mark he has made for himself! This is
a position which stands for positive attainment. No mere
forensic brilliancy can compensate for deficiencies of learning.
A man may be president of the United States without being
a scholar, but he can not be president of a college without
wide scholastic attainment.
And what is this? A copy of the "Noank Review."
I think I'll read a little of it. "Noank Review, Aug. 3o, 1910,
published and edited by Leon H. Treat. Entered at the postoliice
as second-class matter." What's this? "Great Slaughter in
Men's Furnishing Goods, preparatory to receiving New Fall
Styles. Everything must go. Call and see us. F. R. Saul
SL Co." Some more news. "At the Episcopal parsonage
to-morrow evening will be held the first of a series of concerts, "
etc. Why! these names are interesting. "The rector's wife,
Mrs. Simpson, will open the entertaimnent with a vocal solo."
Here is a reading by Miss Ida Letford. I see also that Miss
Belle Collins is down for a piano solo.
Well, well, this is indeed interesting: "Miss Florence
Bennett and Miss Sadie Edwards left this afternoon for San
Francisco, whence they will sail on Saturday for japan. Miss
Edwards has entered the missionary field, and Miss Bennett is
to perfect herself in the japanese language."
Here is another advertisement: "Miss Nellie O'Neill,
Teacher of French. Private lessons, ,?I.OO. Public classes
Wediiesdayfs and Fridays, 5oc." And if Mr. Shattuck isn't a
a literary man! "Mr, Shattuck's latest detective story, "His
Ignominious Death," which has been so well received in our
own country, has been recently translated into French. Its
reception into European literary circles is an almost assured
fact, and we congratulate Mr. Shattuck on his deserved
The paper vanishes, and now-a storm just off a rocky
coast. Terrible waves are sweeping into a vessel, whose bul-
warks are already three parts washed away. Passengers are
running excitedly to and fro on deck. In one of these I rec-
ognize Katherine McCarthy. She is clinging anxiously to the
rail, gazing out over the angry waters at the life-saving crew
which can be seen just leaving the distant shore. Another
friend, I perceive the captain, Charles james, clinging to the
mast. He seems to be giving orders to cast off the boats
already crowded. The picture grows dimmer Zllld dinnner-it
fades away. VVere they saved or not? Alas, we cannot tell.
But another scene is taking its place.
Seated before a drawing table which is covered with the
plans of some immense structure he is building, is Clarence
Wilcox. Stealing down slanting ladders of floating dust, trem-
ulous rays of sunlight illumine a desk piled high with mail,
and pattern a wall hung with photographs of the different
buildings which have marked the progress of his engineering
And now-a view of a temple, yes, some great temple in
Egypt! The whole is more or less in ruins. But now the
work of restoration is begun under the supervision of George
Reynolds. With fully three hundred natives under his direc-
tion, he is repairing the crumbling base of a column.
This view vanishes, while another appears: before a shop
window are messengers and newsboys .vieing with one another
for a glimpse of a photograph. Passing in and out of the
store a fashionably dressed throng is eagerly hurrying to pro-
cure a picture, or bearing one carefully away. It is a likeness
of Miss Mabel Hornby whose fame as a monologue artist is rec-
ognized throughout the country. The likeness is a fine one,
and the dark green card mount bears the inscription "Therese
Kisinger, Photographer. 3 '
Miss Hattie Rowley is standing by a table, cutting out
paper patterns for the amusement and instruction of the some
thirty little ones attending the kindergarten. Every now
and then she glances warningly over her room. About
ten of her flock are enjoying a recreation in one corner, build-
ing little block houses on a table, near which Evelyn Force is
standing ready to quell any little controversies which may
Why! This now seems to be our own " County Fair."
It's one side of a horticultural hall, festooned with garlands of
grapes hung on a wall made of wheat. Pumpkins and squash
of immense size are artistically arranged on a slanting shelf,
before which, leaning over its protecting rail, is Miss, or she
who was, Miss Bertha Love. She is not alone, a man, easily
recognized, is by her side. Their enthusiasm and delight
increases as they behold four different varieties of squash with
a blue ticket attached to each. Now this vision disappears.
What is this?
The friendship between Miss Alice Brown and Graella
Remmele still continues, and their lives bid fair to be happy.
For before me is a corner of' a conservatory. Admirers,
some with aspect stern, others light-hearted and gay, are
grouped about these young women, as inseparably connected
with their lives as the clinging petals are to the budding rose.
Now, a truly bachelor's apartments. The walls are hung
with war relics and trophies of the chase. At the farther side
is a mantel whose shelf is loaded with photographs, souvenirs,
etc. At the left is a Turkish corner, richly decorated, indeed.
The drapery is of priceless tapestry, caught up at the center
of the enclosing arch by the teeth of a grinning skull. A
table, rug, and a Turkish divan form the interior. On this
divan, with its many pillows so dexterously arranged that his
feet are on a level with his head, is Jerome Moran, leading a
life of ease and luxury. Through the half-drawn draperies of
the other side, another apartment can be seen as richly, yet
much more simply furnished. A glass door opens out of this
room. It is lettered in black and reads k-r-a-p. Ah! I'm
reading backward-it is P-a-r-k. R. C. Park, Oil Inspector,
Again, a few wheelmen are picking their way along a
crowded thoroughfare. The sidewalks, too, are thronged.
There I recognize a familiar face, Elva Kingsbury's. Across
the street, standing at the windows of their dental rooms
are Verna Wiggins and Tressie Rogers. They also are gazing
up the street as if impatiently awaiting something of great
moment. Two mounted policemen, in one of whom I recog-
nize Grant Davis, appear. The crowd draws back to make
way for first the band, then-But who is that leading? Seaton
Norcross, to be sure. Now he has passed beyond my view,
while a few boys on foot appear, each bearing some such pla-
card as this: "Largest Animal Show in the World." "Wester-
nian's Famous Circus." Now, in the foreground the crowd
separates for an instant. A man has fallen. Slowly again they
are gathering round, when a person with an air of authority
pushes his way through. It is Dr. Charles Morden, who,
dropping his cane and medicine case beside him, bends over
the prostrate man.
That vision fades away. But no others appear. Can it
be that the destinies of all my classmates have been fore-
told? It must be so. Would you know more of your
future? I, too, have burned in desire to question these
visions farther, but they have made themselves air, into which
they have vanished. Are you disappointed that the future
holds in store for you no more of happiness, no more of pros-
perity? Wise, indeed, was he who said: "Nothing can
bring thee happiness, save thyself."

Qjcsxpcfp S a people, we Americans are industrial. Tl1e heart
6 and soul of our nation fosters and encourages
59. Q skilled handiwork. We respect and admire both
3 the smithy at his anvil, and the sculptor before
"iQU'0 ' his marble. It is not the kind of work so much as
the manner of working. "The essence of all good work is the
life put into it. The soul makes a11 object a work of art." As
an incentive to keep this respect for manual labor always a
characteristic of our glorious country, a way of giving knowl-
edge of these trades must be provided, for with knowledge
comes respect. The manual training school, or Sloyd method,
fills this need. As a progressive people, we have heartily
adopted this system, sent to us from over the sea, it has
become a part of our school creed, and it has come to stay.
The manual training school is said to have been first
established in Sweden, although Russia also claims the dis-
tinction. Besides being found in these two countiies,
it is also widely used at present in Germany, Switzerland,
Finland, France and America. It proposes to offset the strain
resulting from the great amount of mental work commonly
required in the schools, to strengthen physical powers, to
teach precision, cleanliness, order and attention. Its aim
seems, and is, a broad one, but as yet it has not failed in any
particular to gain tangible results, and to bring into a closer
relation the " knowing and doing." Its object is not only to
make the student familiar with materials and methods, but by
cultivating tl1e habit of accurate and thoughtful worksto
develop all his faculties.
The instruction given in the manual training school c011-
sists of three main branches, The simple tool processes, the
domestic arts, and a most thorough course in drawing which
occupies nearly one-half tl1e time of training. This work in
Sloyd should be lirst taken up in the kindergarten, and
continued through tl1e various grades and High School. In
this way, an early and lasting respect for handiwork, as well
as tl1e general knowledge of manual labor, is imparted to the
pupil. He early learns to think and act for himself, to rightly
value the skill of others as well as his own, and to realize
both man's self-dependence and inter-dependence.
The benefits derived from a good course in manual train-
ing cannot be over-estimated. As one has said, " it puts the
whole boy to school," and provides the connecting link
between theory and practice, substituting realities for mere
words, personal experience for the recorded experience of
another. A student in a manual training school does not nec-
essarily become a mechanic, but through the intelligence and
skill required in such a school, he is the better equipped for a
higher education. It is highly possible that he may not earn
his bread through such accomplishments, since dexterity in
the use of tools is held secondary, while mastery of principles
However, for those who do look forward to an industrial
occupation, it broadens the field of labor, inspiring them to be
self-sufficient. W'hatever line of work he may choose, he is
sure to do much better because of the training he has received,
requiring, as it did, reason and study, rather than imitation
or copy-work. He has put theory to the practical test, he has
developed his common sense and judgment, he has had his
own experience, rather than the experience of othersg all of
which enables him to climb more quickly the ladder of success.
To the girl graduate it means no contempt of household
duties and responsibilitiesg it means no distaste for the more
homely tasks of every-day life. It does mean, moreover, an
increased respect for industry, and a broad knowledge of the
management of a home.
There are many who expect to earn a living by some
trade, and, if they see no manual training school ahead, they
are most apt to leave school before graduating. This is no
small consideration, for that which keeps one at school longer
must be of some consequence. The withdrawal of many stu-
dents even before entering the High School can be traced
directly to a lack of some sort of industrial training.
The moral influence also is very great. An occupation
which fully absorbs one's attention is a great safeguard of
morality. In this respect the manual training keeps one out
of mischief, and furnishes agreeable work. Such employment
has great power to soften and refine rudeness, and to engage
the attention of those whom a common High School course
could not interest.
As yet Adrian lacks this important department. We
believe we are most fortunate in having such excellent educa-
tional opportunities, and we may rightfully boast of our super-
ior advantages. Nevertheless our greatest need, at the pres-
ent time, is the manual department. A systeln in Sloyd put
within the reach of the pupils of the public schools would be
of inestimable value. A manual training school in Adrian
would mean a better and more practical education for the stu-
dents now in the school, would attract many who are now on
the point of leaving, to continue their development, and draw
in many who at present have no desire to be within the four
A11d this increase in the school attendance suggests the
question now being agitated-that of a new High School
building. It is without doubta need as well as a want,
because of the overcrowded condition of the High School, and
the increasing inconveniences resulting from it. Then, too,
the physical injury caused by climbing the stairs would be
done away with by having a ground Hoor High School.
With these improvements, Adrian would be in the fore-
most ranks of the army of progress. F. L. B.

N important feature of the work of the High School is
the literary societies. A great amount of good has
been accomplished through them, and doubtless their inlluence
will be the better appreciated in time to come.
The Athenaeum Literary Society holds a secure place in
the regard of its members, both active and honorary. Many
a pleasant hour has been spent listening to the Friday pro-
grams, which serve as welcome respites from study. The
management of the program is left to an executive committee
composed of three of the students, including the president, and
the three teachers assigned to the society.
The programs this year have carried no one plan through-
out, but have varied as the occasion seemed to demand. At
the start theiidea was to present, in an interesting way, the
histories of the great nations in as many programs, to picture
the rise and fall of Persia, of Greece, Rome and others. This
was carried out in part, with programs of a different nature
interspersed. National holidays, occurrences of universal
interest, war problems and the like suggested many of the
W'hile much of the work is recitations, written reviews
and selections from well-known authors and magazines, never-
theless, the aim is to have at least one original paper. The
amount of school work required prevents the preparation of
any elaborate oration, and the informal debate takes its place.
Ease before an audience, and a more ready command of lan-
guage are the tangible results obtained from this sort of
On the whole, the Athenaeum Literary Society occupies
a prominent place in the work of the Adrian High School.

HE PHILOMATHEAN, lovers of learning,
Society has been organized tive years. Its
literary exercises are given every two weeks, on
Friday afternoon, beginning at two o'clock. The
programs, at first, consisted generally of reviews
of the lives of great poets, novelists or states-
meng recitations and readings from their writ-
ings, and the society paper, "The Philomathean
Crescent." Now, while the original plan is car-
ried Out in part, there are many debates in
which the whole society and school have an
interest and voice. Thus there is more freedom,
and less formality of expression. There has
been no particular subject this year, each pro-
gram being complete in itself.
The business meetings, too, have undergone a
change. During the last semester of this year,
parliamentary drill has been a very important
feature. Different members have been called
upon to preside, after the regular business has
been transacted. No minutes are taken while
the society is thus resolved into a committee of
the whole, but the questions which are brought
up occasion a great deal of argument among the
members, and all are necessarily made familiar
with parliamentary rules.
In the executive meetings, although the teach-
ers have general supervision, the president and
his assistants are allowed perfect freedom in
originality of ideas and treatment of subjects.
The society has also been a stimulus to, and a
preparation for, the State High School Oratorical
Association which Adrian High School joined
three years ago.
Cn the whole the society does and should hold
a very important position in the required work
of our High School.

"The High School is the people's college," and it should
be the ai1n of the people to so care for and improve the High
School that when their sons and daughters are graduated
therefrom, they will be prepared to go out into the world and
earn a livelihoodg or, if they so desire, to proceed to some
greater institution of learning and fit themselves for broader
and higher spheres of influence. Until this is done, the High
Schools of our state and county will not be accomplishing all
in their power and within their proper scope.
The first consideration, one to be always kept in mind,
is that no expense is too great, no tax levy too burdensome,
no appropriation too large, which advances a single step the
education of the common people. There are two principal
classes who do not attend the High Schoolg The lirst class is
composed almost entirely of boys, who, from dislike, inherited
perhaps from a long line of illiterate ancestors, or from sheer
excess of animal spirit, become disgusted with the mechanical
routine of the grades, and leave school as SOO11 as the law will
allow. Woiild it not be well to so amend our compulsory
school laws that they shall require a certain amount of credi-
table work, rather than any definite amount of time spent in
school? This, however, would be a great hardship to those
who are obliged to leave school to earn their own living, and
often, to help support others. This is the larger and, by far,
the more deserving class. It would be both impossible and
undesirable for the state to support these people while they are
obtaining an education, but there are now established two
institutions under private control-correspondence and night
schools, which the state might easily adopt into the present
system, and thereby furnish to everyone an opportunity to
acquire an education, whatever his station or circumstances
But are our High Schools ready for this increased work
and responsibility? At present they do nothing completely
except prepare their students for further study, and only a
small percentage are able to attend colleges or the University.
No one can obtain a responsible business position without
a course in some business school or an equivalent training in
the office. In many of our schools two years are now spent
in the study of bookkeeping. If to this course were added
two years in which the pupil could study the practical side of
business, the great, far-reaching principles which underlie and
govern the world of commerce, business men would not hesi-
tate to give positions of trust and honor to pupils who had
pursued this line of work.
Again, there is probably a larger percentage of High
School graduates who enter the profession of teaching, than
any other definite line of work. The calling of a teacher is a
high one, and should not be entered into lightly, nor without
some practice under the guidance of an experienced teacher.
How much better it would be if, to those who desired it, were
given the opportunity to go into the grades, there to learn, by
the best possible means-actual practice-the thousand-and-
one little things which go to make up a successful teacher, and
which can never be learned in any other way. Two more
years spent in this work, together with a more leisurely pur-
suit of some of the most important studies, now crowded into
six months or a year, and one or two more subjects, designed
to develop the perceptive and reasoning faculties, would enable
our High School to send fourth broad-minded, quick-witted
teachers, in every way qualified to instruct and develop the
young and vigorous minds of our country.
The ideal High School is yet afar off. It is, however,
always a wise plan to have, in our minds, a picture of that for
which we are striving. The perfection of instruction is
attained when the teacher is able to become personally
acquainted with each individual under his charge, and minis-
ter to the individual needs of each. This cannot be done so
long as a teacher is required to hear the recitations of from
one hundred and sixty to two hundred pupils in one day.
" The little red school house " is considered the founda-
tion stone of American liberty, and such it is, for there the
teacher is enabled to come close to the students, and to give to
each the particular aid he requires. If, in our High Schools,
there were a room in which each teacher might spend at least
two hours each day with the pupils, becoming acquainted with
each person, and teaching social graces as well as intellectual,
a charm would be given to school life and a culture to the
students, which would go a great way toward removing some
of the social problems now vexing the minds of the people.
It should be our aim to so enlarge the scope of our schools,
that, in the future, the artisan, the man or woman who earns
his or her living by manual labor, may possess the education
requisite to the proper understanding and enjoyment of the
common things placed round about us, thereby lightening our
labors, and encouraging us ever to strive toward better things.

The Public Library.
N the public school library, the young people who do not
have magazines at home can enjoy standard current lit-
erature, here are the materials for rounding out our school
workg and here we may wander with travelers throiggh churches
and abbeys of the middle ages, visit the Parthenon and listen to
the modern service in the ancient Pantheon, understand, as in
no other way, " the glory that was Greece, and the grandeur
that was Rome." For the library is to us, ocean voyage, gon-
dola, Alpine trip, and a visit to the Sphinx. It is railroad ticket
and eyes, for even if we were present in the midst of those
wonderful scenes we would not see all that those writers see
for us. In these books we get a nearer view of authors, and
closer acquaintance with them by such visits to their homes
and the scenes they have pictured.
Within these walls, in the quiet atmosphere of the read-
ing room, we read the story of the Goths, the Huns, and all
those storied facts that people history with real personages,
and give life and vividness to unadorned statements, and to
Twenty years ago the citizens of Adrian did not have
these advantages. The Public School Library was situated on
the third floor of the Central School Building, in what is now
the Senior room. To secure access to these books, the people
were obliged to climb three flights of stairs. As this was very
diflicult, the public preferred to draw books at the Ladies'
Library, situated, at that time, in the Conger block, for which
privilege they were required to pay one dollar a year. The
Ladies' Library Association iinally offered to donate the
library to the Board of Education for the benefit of the Public
Schools, provided the library could be located on the ground
floor of a building in the central part of the city. The offer
was accepted, and the ground floor of the City Hall was
secured at a nominal rent.
Besides an abundance of imaginative literature, the library
contains many thousand volumes of interesting and instruct-
ive reading. This is being increased each year, and we may
be thankful for the liberal appropriations made by the citizens
to its support. 'While the public most appreciate the alcoves
of United States history and literature, the constant aim of
the committee is to make each department complete, and to
stimulate literary taste along all lines.
VVhat an inlluence must go out from the library with
those books! An average of one hundred and seventy-live
volumes a day, absorbed by the citizens of Adrian! There are
innumerable instances in which books are consulted at the
library, and of which no record is kept.
Indeed, one of the highest aims is to divert the recreative
reading of the community into better channels-to replace
light literature with the works of standard authors, and grad-
ually to elevate the ideals and sentiments of the people. There
has been ready perception of the truth, that one's memory can
not be better developed than by association with an institu-
tion so popular, so elevating, and so reiining as the Public
Library. V. VV.

High School Ofatorical Contest.
HE third annual High School Oratorical Contest was held
in the Baptist church, March 16.
The seven contestants and their subjects were as follows:
All That Glitters is Not Gold, - Charles A. Wilson, ,O2
Rome Was Not Built in a Day, - Glenn Knapp, ,OI
What is a Minority? - - Perry M. Gothain, 'oo
Enter Every Gpen DOor, - Evelyn M. Force, ,QQ
Filipino Libre, - - - George W. Reynolds, ,QQ
Our Nation's Opportunity, - - Wilfred B. Shaw, ,QQ
Function of the Beautiful, - - Edwin B. Townsend, 'oo
Each class had at least one representative in the contest,
and this fact served to inake it one of the inost interesting
events ever held i11 the high school.
The contest was very close between VVilfred Shaw, George
Reynolds and Edwin Townsend.
It so happened that Mr. Shaw and Mr. Reynolds had,
unknown to each other, chosen opposite sides of the question
regarding the independence of the Filipinos, and this fact gave
The decision of the judges gave Mr. Shaw first place, and
Mr. Reynolds second. The judges on thought and composi-
tion were Mrs. H. R. Clarlc, Capt. I. H. Fee and Rev. E. M,
McMillin. The judges on delivery were Mrs. C. E. XVeaver,
Mr. D. B. Morgan and Lieut. L. H. Salsbury.
District Oratorical Contest.
HE third annual oratorical contest of the High Schools
of our district was held at Hillsdale, April 7, 1899.
The counties included in this district are as follows:
Ingham, Jackson, Washteiiawv, Monroe, Lenawee,
Hillsdale and Branch. Representatives from the
following High Schools participated in the contest at Hills-
dale: Ypsilanti, Adrian, Hillsdale, Monroe, Mason and
The winner of the contest was Miss Harriet Shafter Lee,
of Mason. Our representative, Mr. Shaw, was accorded second
place, ahead of Ypsilanti and Hillsdale, which were very ably
represented by Messrs. Forsyth and Chestnut, respectively.
Adrian was present not only in the person of her repre-
sentative, but she was also upheld by a large contingent of
students and several of the teachers. Prof. Welch, as chair-
man of the executive committee, was also on hand. Most of
those attending left Adrian on the noon train, arriving in
Hillsdale a little after one o'cloclc. This crowd was composed
entirely of boys, and they immediately began to demonstrate
to the people of Hillsdale that there was such a place as Adrian.
The time between their arrival and the hour for the recep-
tion which was accorded the visiting delegations, was spent in
various ways. At the appointed hour, all repaired to the
home of Miss Chapman, where the reception was held. The
remainder of those who came from Adrian arrived on the late
train, and came immediately to the reception. Among these
were Miss Smith, Miss Stearns and Mr. Trowbridge. The
reception was a very pleasing affair, and was certainly very
well arranged by those having it in charge.
The visitors were entertained over night by the teachers
and students of the High School, and those who had already
been assigned, went home with their host or hostess to sup-
per before the contest. The others, that is, most of the boys,
spent the time until eight o'cloclc, impressing upon the minds
of the Hillsdalites that Adrian was still there, and liable to
At eight o'clock all went to the church where the contest
was to be held, and, finding the others there, all procured
seats at the back of the church.
Here the fun began. The various delegations began
cheering their respective representatives, and Adrian was not
in the least backward in following their examples. Under the
able leadership of Mr. Crane, the various yells of the High
School were given with such enthusiasm as almost to drown
the efforts of the others.
Those who had not been assigned places for the night
were provided with places after the contest.
The greater part of our delegation returned on the early
train the next morning. Some, however, for different reasons,
remained over until the noon train.
All who attended report an excellent time, and the man-
ner in which Hillsdale High School entertained us, and the
kindness and hospitality shown us during our short stay were

Alone sometimes she walked in secret,
Where to ruminate upon her discontent. "

The comely virgins came, with garlands dight,
All fresh as flowers."

And rather ' tight' than great."

The melancholy days are come,
The saddest of the year,
When we, the seniors, now must leave
All that we hold so dear.

As fast, as fast could be,
While we've been climbing, step by step,
Commencement 'for to' see.
But now we're weary of the din,
Which we ourselves have madeg
And we bid good bye to the Senior room,
Where so many pranks were played.
We were not as bad as some might think,
Although we do confess
That we a real good time did love,
As much as does our Jess.

Of how we broke the rules,

Fogg, Lfndzfa!! and Ofhers.--It is against the rules to
match pennies in the High School. You are too big for that.
You should match nickels, to say the least.
Palmer.-It must have been annoying to have been mis-
taken for a girl when you first went out in your new bicycle
suit. How funny that a young man should have tried to
flirt with you. It is very naughty to Hirt, and I hope you
gave him no encouragement.
Jllomn.-If you will take quince seeds and soak them in
water, and add a little book-binder's glue, it will assist you in
keeping your hair curled after using the curling iron.
Ha1'1jf Smilh.-Eating arsenic may be good for the com-
plexion, but it is bad for the digestion. It might give you
the stomach-ache. I love my dear boys too much to want any
of them to ever have the stomach-ache.
Childs.-It was very bad for a young lady to hint that she
would like to have you take her to the theater, and you will
do well to beware of young ladies who stop in front of the
candy store and talk about chocolate creams.
Rqyfzzolds.-I would simply drop from my calling list, if I
were you, the young lady who had her big brother pitch you
out of the house for trying to indulge in osculatory convivi-
ality. Let her know you are not to be trifled with.

heard that a Turkish bath, combined with a diet of strong
coffee and pickles is helpful in an emergency of this kind.

end of the twelfth moon that the tribe of Nutty-Too coun-
seled together that they might make a sojourn, a day's jour-
ney by night toward the West, even beyond Rome. And the
report thereof spread abroad among the tribes of Nutty-Won
and Nutty-Nut and reached even unto the tribe of Nintinin.
And, verily, when it came unto the warriors of these tribes,
they laughed muchly and spat upon their hands, for they
thirsted after the blood of Nutty-Too.
Now, it was winter, and the snow covereth the ground,
and the tribe of Nutty-too hireth, for many shekels of silver,
four bob-chariots drawn by steeds fat unto the fatness of Baby
Bliss. Of drivers for the chariots there were four, and the
wind blew through their whiskers.
Thereupon, the tribe setteth out upon their sojourn, both
male and female set they forth, and the wind bloweth
not through the whiskers of the warriorsfi' And with them
taketh they many rulers of the lands. Witli them taketh
they Prof, ruler of the tribes of Nutty-Won and Nutty-Nut,
which dwelt within the same territory. And with them taketh
they also their own rulers, the Lord High Keeper of the
Animals, and the Shepherdess of the Heifer Paddock,i' and the
priestess of the Senior Temple of the tribe of Nintinin.
Now, the warriors of the other tribes of the land who
spat upon their hands, setteth they out also in a bob-chariot g
in numbers were they as the days of the week and Sunday
twice. Now, long was the way and narrow, and the drivers
of the tribe of Nutty-Too were fearful, but the bob-chariots of
the tribes came upon the caravan of Nutty-Too unawares, and
the warriors of the tribes laid low in the bob-chariot and
drave they swiftly about the caravan of Nutty-Too until they
came even unto the head of it. And when they led the cara-
van of Nutty-Too, straightway drave they slow, like unto
the snail, and the tribe of Nutty-Too waxeth wroth, and
they cry, "Get a move on ye!" But they did not so. And it
came to pass that the tribe of Nutty-Too, like unto the waves
of the sea in number, did beset upon the warriors of the other
tribes, which were few in number, in the muchness of their
anger. And up gat with them the Keeper of the Animals and
besat he with them. And then it came to pass that the tribes
which led the caravan smole each man a smile, and straight-
way laid they hands upon the Chief Miscumscribulatorfr of
Nutty-Too, and also taketh they captive the Lord High
Keeper of the Animals. ii if

Tit is a very strange coincidence that Mark Twain, in his
travels in Australia, noticed that the West Australians use the

The Miscumscribulator said not a word, for the warriors
laid him in the bottom of the bob-chariot and sat upon him.
Then counseled they together and out of the largeness of their
hearts taketh they back the Keeper of the Animals upon a
road which led unto Rome, for they bore no malice unto the
Keeper of the Animals. And, verily, they reached the
Eternal City even before the tribe of Nutty-too, which strayed
not from the straight way.
And wl1e11 the tribe of Nutty-too came upon them, the
warriors of the tribes delivereth over unto them their Lord
High Keeper of the Animals and Chief Miscumscribulator
without the injury of so much as a single hair, except that
the dice was stoveir of the Lord High Keeper of the Animals.
And there was joy in the camp amongst the tribe of Nutty-

The manuscript ends abruptly at this point. Nothing further
historically authentic is known of the tribe of Nutty-Too: but it
is, perhaps, safe to conjecture that they returned in safety to their
former territories. Recent excavations have unearthed a vehicle
from the dry hed of a stream which some scholars suspect to be a
specimen of one of these ancient "bob- Chariots."-ED.

. . Social Events . .
HE social events of the past school year have been of a
, varied and entirely harmless kind. Anything in the
nature of a relief from toilsome study is always joy-
fully received, and feeling sure that we have not indulged too
often, we are confident that both benefit and pleasure have
been gained. A jolly good time now and then in connection
with our school work cannot but rouse us to a greater and
more active interest in our studies. Then, too, there is a ten-
dency in such gatherings, especially if they are informal, for
a better acquaintance between members of different classes,
who, having no studies in common, are often entire strangers,
one to another. Class spirit is put aside in the general aim to
have a good time, and taking everythinginto consideration, an
entertainment now and then is a good thing.
After the sleigh-rides were over and affairs had settled
down to their usual routine, came the play, " The Company's
Husbands," produced by members of the Senior class. It was
a decided success, both as a pleasing entertaimnent, and in a
financial way. At the close of the play ice cream and cake
were served, the proceeds of which increased the gain still
May 12th occurred the Cantata, " The Haymakersf' which
was the result of much practice and hard woi k. Great credit
is due to the executive ability of Miss Nicholson, and to her
untiring efforts to make it a success. Through the generous
co-operation of the citizens, the result was highly gratifying
to all concerned.
About this time an entertainment for the benefit of the
Athletic Association was given by some of the members at
Whitney's Opera House. It was a decidedly new venture, but
was well received.
We hope that every school year may be as pleasantly
varied as was the year '98-'99. F. B.

, the mind of each senior as the one oasis in the des-
ert of toil and trouble. If one were poetically
inclined he might say that it was a delightful moonlight
evening, with stars twinkling in the deep, blue sky, etc., but
sufficient it was for us that there was plenty of snow on the
ground, and that there were two great "bobs" ready to take us
out to Roy Beal's home, where, by his kind invitation, we
were to spend the evening. With the exception of meeting
a rather mysterious looking sleigh, we reached our destina-
tion without adventure.
Music and games filled in every moment of the time,
which went all too quickly. In the midst of the fun a shout
rang through the house, " Freshmen! " Excusing themselves
for a few moments, the boys-yes, and the girls, too, hastened
to the scene of action. We had scarcely reached the road,
when an open sleigh dashed past. By way of having a little
fun we armed ourselves with various inoffensive weapons, as
clubs, fence-pickets, horse-pistols and snow-balls. But alas
for the timidity some people exhibit in time of danger! Our
adversaries, rather than risk a meeting, kept at a safe distance,
until they might pass the house unseen. This one-sided war-
fare was renewed several times during the evening, but their
cowardice evinced no desire to combat with Senior courage.
Later came the supper. And what a supper it was! The
choicest samples of Senior girls' cooking were included in the
spread, which, added to the skill of the waiters, made it a
feast long to be remembered.
Soon, all too soon, came the morning hours and the time
for the return. After many thanks to the friends who had
shown us so much kindness a11d hospitality, we said "Good

. Football Season of '98 . .
HE football season of '98 opened very favorably for the
2 Park, Moran, Schroeder and Wagner came out for
practice when the call for candidates was issued, and
a large number of inexperienced players as well.
Captain Wilcox, assisted by Professor Trowbridge, who acted
as coach, soon had the players in good condition. The eleven
is to be praised for the way in which it workedg each player
trying to do his best, working regularly, and helping the others
Q gf High School. Five of last year's eleven, Wilcox,
in every way possible.
On October 22d the first game of the season was played
with Adrian College. It was a bad day for a football game.
It rained during almost the entire game, and neither side was
able to play good football. The High School scored a safety
in the first half, and won the game 2 to o. During the next
week the College decided they wanted revenge, and played us
again October 26. There was no rain or a slippery ground to
bother them, so they started in to win. The High School
kicked off, the College could not advance the ball, and it went
to the High School O11 downs. By steady work and long end
runs the boys soon carried the ball over for a touch-down.
Knapp failed to kick goal. During the rest of the half the
ball was in the possession of first one side and then the other.
In the second half the College braced up and played a good
game. The High School worked hard to keep the College
from scoring, but by long end runs the latter scored a touch-
down, just as the half was up. They failed to kick goal, thus
making the game a tie, 5 to 5.
October 29th, Jackson High School came over. It was a
fine day for a football game, and the Jackson boys thought
they had an easy mark to play against, because of the Way
they ran over us in ,97. Jackson kicked off to Adrian's if-
teen yard line, where the ball was downed. It was a hard
game from then on, first Adrian losing the ball and then Jack-
son. The ball did not move either Way more than five yards
during about ten minutes of the play. jackson, by a trick
play, carried the ball to Adrian's five yard line, and they tried,
by the fiercest kind of line bucking, to carry it over. In two
downs they advanced to within one-half yard of our goal. On
the third down it was "do or die," and Wagner, our right
tackle did the deed by going through Iackson's line and
securing the ball. Wilcox, on the first down, went around
the end for ten yards, placing our goal out of danger. During
the rest of the half the ball was in Adrian's possession most
of the time. The half ended with the ball in the center of the
The second half was noticeable for individual plays, the
place kick by the captain of the Jackson team of forty-five
yards, the forty yard run of Moran, and the fierce line buck-
ing of Wilcox. The jackson boys became tired, and after
nearly every down one of them would call time to catch his
wind. This was the finest game of football ever played in
Adrian. The Hnal score was o to o.
On November 19th, the High School eleven XVCllt to
Monroe to play Monroe High School. Adrian had tl1e advan-
tage i11 weigl1t, but Monroe made up for it in quickness.
Adrian kicked off a11d secured the ball on a fumble. Wilcox
secured the first touchdown i11 less than four llllllLllCS. Knapp
kicked goal. The rest of the ga111e was a see-saw back a11d
forth. Ill the second half Adrian l1ad everything her own
way, and secured a touchsdown a11d goal. The final score
was I2 to o i11 Adrian's favor.
On Friday after11oo11, November Igllll, Adrian received 2111
invitation to go to Hillsdale and play a practice game with the
Hillsdale College giants. The boys accepted the invitation
and went 011 the noon trai11 Saturday, November 19th.
The Hillsdale men treated us finely, nothing was too good
for us. Ill speaking of tl1e ga111e, all that can be said is that
Hillsdale had all the practice she wanted, flllllllllg up a score
of 47 to o. Adrian need 11ot feel badly, for Hillsdale had a
strong eleven, and won the intercollegiate championship of
The last game of tl1e season was played Thanksgiving
day with the Detroit High School, in Adria11. The game was
a long and drawn out one, the Detroit boys doing a good deal
of kicking alld delaying the game. The features of the game
were tl1e two lO1lg 111115 of Rapp, of forty a11d fifty yardsg the

. . . . The Track Team . .
C 'QD Ji 'U HEN the second semester opened, the boys began
3 6? ,D to talk about a track team, but there was a great
3 C Eg G obstacle in the way, for the Athletic Associa-
QJJQLCUQ tion was in debt, and not one cent in the treas-
ury. A meeting of the boys was called and
plans talked over for clearing up the debt, and raising money
to send a track team to Ann Arbor.
The boys went to work with a will, and soon had the
Association free from debt and more than enough money to
provide for the track team. Glenn Knapp was elected cap-
tain and Prof. Trowbridge, manager. They set to work at
once and soon had the team picked out. Prof. Trowbridge,
assisted by Prof. Smalley, took the boys in training, and by
hard work had them in good condition for the meet at Ann
Arbor, and the bicycle races at Ypsilanti. Knapp and Tayer
were our representatives, Knapp going in the quarter, mile,
and two mile races, and Tayer in the two mile. Knapp did
not succeed in getting a place in the first two events, but in
the two mile race he secured first place, and Tayer fourth, out
of a field of sixteen, thus scoring five points for Adrian.
Early Saturday morning it began to rain, and continued
until about eight o'clock, making the track slow for the
sprints. Schureman, Adrian's representative in the loo yard
dash, through a misunderstanding with the judges was not on
hand for the event. In the 440 yard dash, Finch started for
Adrian and finished second, scoring three points. Seiffer had
a walk away in the pole vault, clearing eight feet, six inches.
Seiffer is to be praised for the way,in which he has trained
this season, bei11g steady and regular in his work. VVilcox
and Lindvall won third place respectively, hammer throw and
mile walk. Adrian did better this year than any year she has
been represented. Sixteen of the largest High Schools in the
state competed. Detroit won first place, scoring 43 pointsg
Ann Arbor, second, 36 points, Pontiac, third, 16 pointsg and
Adrian fourth with I5 points.
On june gd, the High School held their field day on the
college grounds. It rained in the morning, making it bad for
the contestants. Nearly every member of the Athletic Asso-
sociation was entered in one or more events. Glenn Knapp
scored the most points, 385 Finch was second with 285 VVilcox
third, 20, Seiffer, fourth, 19. The merchants gave many
beautiful prizes, for which the Athletic Association extend
Withiii the past two years Monroe has extended three
invitations to Adrian for a joint track meet and base ball
game. This is the first year that Adrian has been able to go.
On Friday, june oth, Professor Trowbridge, accompanied by
six members of the track team, and the base base ball nine
went there. Adrian was allowed only six men for the track
team, while Monroe had about thirty. In nearly all the
events Adrian had only one representative, while Monroe had
from two to six. Knapp scored the most points for Adrian,
winning four firstsg Seiffer was second, winning three firsts.
The final score was Monroe 27, Adrian 24. The boys brought
home many valuable prizes, which the merchants of Monroe year Adrian should make a high bid for first place in the inter
donated. The ball game gave promise of being a very good scholastic meet. Nearly all the members of this year s team

A Stranger's View of Victoria Street.
QJCGNQ HAT magnificent thoroughfare of Westminster, Vic-
gz Digg toria street, is bounded at one end by Dean's yard,
G and at the other by Victoria Station. At the first
gbwfg glance, the street does not strike the visitor favor-
'Q ably. Going one way he is anxious to reach the
station, and going the other, he wants to see the Abbey. Its
ordered regularity deceives him. A
There are no prominent sights to make an impression on
his mind, and if he remembers it after his holiday, it is chiefiy
because he once determined to save a 'bus fare, and found the
street a great deal longer that it looks. The charm of the
street grows upon one gradually, when he begins to find that
it is not so monotonous as it seemed.
The street has a composite character and several moods.
You could throw a stone from the army and navy stores to
Strutton Ground. Vet, while the rich are paying bank notes
for luxuries in the army and navy stores, their fellow London-
ers are looking critically at the stalls for the cheapest vegeta-
bles in the grounds. ,
Some significance may be found in the fact that among
the Embassies, the American Embassy alone is in the
street. The Ambassador CMr. Choateb like other Ambassa-
dors lives in aristocratic London, but for business and busi-
ness purposes, he is content to be in a business street.
Several members of Parliament live in Victoria street.
Near there is Carlisle-place: there is a serene highness---
Prince Leiningeng a famous doctor-Sir james Crichton
Browne g and a bishop-his eloquent lordship, of Ripon.
The quietude is in Dean's yard, where, in the shade of
the Abbey, amid the ecclesiastical residences and the trees, one
may ponder on the past, and philosophize according to the
extent of his knowledge and immagination.
The army and navy stores represent the street in another
aspect-its modern and aristocratic side. Even the dogs wait-
ing on the porch are well-bred. The stores do not permit
dogs to enter, but they provide chains and a resting place for
them outside, and a robust commissionaire to see that they
don't go astray. The dainty little dogs sit with an air of
pride on the window-sills, while their dainty mistresses go
inside to purchase.
If you wish to see the British army at its ease, the army
and navy stores is the place. You see it in all ranks, from
the retired general in the luncheon-room, carefully selecting
his viands and his wines, to the last-joined subaltern in the
supply department, inspecting helmets, trappings and boots,
and dreaming of fights in the far corners of the Empire.
Victoria street is distinctly a street of headquarters. The
associations can be numbered by the hundreds-from the
Primrose League to the Society for the Welfare of the Feeble-
mindedg from the Cyclists' Touring Club, to the Home for
Inebriate Wonien. The street contains several generals, the
meteorological office Cwhere they control the weatherb, a music
hall, several tony hotels, and a church. And if all this is
found in one street, could it be possible for anyone to imagine
the rest of London? Nl.-XGPIE.

QKFMDD OR the third time we place before the public the annual publication of the Senior
Class of Adrian High School. It is larger and, we trust, better than ever before.
VVe should profit by the experiences of our predecessors. It would, therefore,
seem strange if this annual failed to show some improvement over those of for-
Qld DD . .
CD 0340, mer years. We believe that we have sustained the former good record estab-
lished by previous Sickle Boards, and we hope that in this instance, as formerly,
our publication will not suffer by comparison with the Annuals issued by other High
Schools of the state.
VVe are deeply grateful for the interest shown by all sides in our work. XYe are very
sure everyone can recognize the excellent work on the part of the printer and engraver.
Mr. Finch has again taken the printing contract, and has surpassed himself in completing
it. We would also state that a member of the High School, Mr. Frank Finch, has done
all the presswork, a task which one must see performed, to appreciate the labor involved.
The photographs of all the classes, and the individual pictures of the members of the
Senior Class, as well as of the football and track teams, were taken by Mr. XYill Barnum.
His work certainly speaks for itself. The Barnum Engraving Company has made all the
half tones and zinc etchings, with the exception of the cut of Prof. DeMotte and the cover
design. Our illustrations are certainly superior. Toward our success in this part of our
work, the photographer and engraver, because of their keen personal interest, have con-
tributed in no less degree than has the printer. And to all these gentlemen is due our appre-
ciation for their consideration of our inexperience. To Mr. Payne, the binder, also we
would express our gratitude for the neatness and dispatch with which he completed his part of
To the advertisers we would state that only through their liberal patronage are we able
to carry out this work, and, therefore, we are correspondingly grateful to them. XY. B. S.

H Horse. H Bom.
Was considered very valuable in Richard Third's time
when he was offering his kingdom for a horse, and if Page
Fences had been in use in those days, he would probably have
said: -fRatcliff, go to the closure hard by, bring the steed
groomed by a son of the desert, the one l took from Rich:
mond for a price which he could not name because of his fear
and shaking while standing in my deformed and illustrious
presence. How knowest I that the quine is now there? Be:
cause the closure is surrounded by fuH 25 coHed wires that
level with the horizon, and these are crossed and so inter:
woven by others, and made on the wondrous looms of Page,
that horse nor man, friend nor enemy could their meshes so
disfigure as to allow escape. Go, l say, and stand not upon
the order of your going, but lne thee to pastures surrounded
by Page Fence, and bring hither my horse."
SEQUEL-No Page Fence in those days, no horse came.
Alas, Poor Richard.
