A., M. I, S„ Atlanta, Georgia " Forget thyself to marble. " Tjftstnrg of GHass 100H 9 X accordauce with the adage, " age before beauty, " we will begin with Louise Chick. She came to Agnes Scott near the close of the last century. For several years she lay dormant, but awoke to the realities of life in 1904, and to make up for lost time has since then associated herself actively with four classes. }fot long ago Chick found English too commonplace to express her mighty thoughts and straightway resorted to German. Close application to the study of this language has in some part taken the place of her affection for " Popey dear. " ' Tis strange but true that one of us has been here longer than Chick. Charlotte Eamspeck learned her A B C ' s at Agnes Scott Academy. The college has tried to outgrow her, but she bas risen with it, and, in spite of the distraction of a day pupil, she has reached her senior year with honors. Xext comes our country lass, Maud Hill. She grew up mi a farm and grew and grew and grew and really did no harm. Then she came to Agnes Scott, and since she has been here she has grown in wisdom and stature and in favor with the faculty and students. She has borne with dignity the many responsibilities heaped upon her and has proven faithful to every trust. When Elva Drake came to us, three years ago, she was put in the room with Louise Chick — the one fatal mistake of Miss Hopkins. The Drake and the Chick soon separated, however, and peace reigned throughout the land. The ease with which Elva has stood her countless examinations has made her famous in the annals of the college. Her executive ability has guided the Student Government Association safely through the crisis of another year, and to her be the praise for the success of the Silhouette. La petite Katharine Dean began as a Freshman in 1904 and is the sole survivor of that Freshman class. She has carried a double burden and is one of the three in the history of Agnes Scott who has obtained a certificate in music in addition to her diploma. Katharine has always been the fashion plate for the class. " When in doubt of what to wear, All the class to her repair. " For six years the slow train through Arkansas has brought us Lill Phillips. Lill " never troubles trouble, till trouble troubles her, " but the Fates have been kind to her, and in her undertakings she has always been successful. Her triumphs on " field day " have brought honor to the class and to sister Anne, her faithful adviser. Jeannette Brown has been continually the mouthpiece of the class, and, though she somewhat monopolizes the conversation, generally has something good to say. Her forte lies in literature and her contributions to the college magazines have added greatly to their value. Jeannette has frequently proven her ability as a hostess and has done much for the pleasure of the class. Rose " Wood was handed down to us from the class of 1905. Two years of vacation did not quench her thirst for knowledge, and 1908 found her main- taining her old standard of perfection at Agnes Scott. All praise to Lolah Parham that, in spite of the absence of Miss Massie and Ethel MacBonald, she had the courage to return to Agnes Scott. Her ability to blend domestic with physical science has often been proved, to the great delight of the class in Physics B. Her laces and embroideries have been an effective means of securing the favor of the faculty and of spreading her fame abroad. Last but not least comes Lizzabel, of small stature but gigantic intellect. No one has ever stood the ghost of a chance for an honor if Lizzabel entered the contest. On every commencement day she has borne the palm of victory. But who could marvel, for she was never known to waste a minute! Although the history of a class, like that of the world, is made up of individual histories, this record is incomplete without some recognition of the class as a whole. It bears the distinction of having first introduced the custom of wearing the cap and gown at Agnes Scott and will be remembered for that, among other things. So. here " s to the class, the merry old class. To its days both bright and blue; Here ' s to our future, be what it may. We ' ve had our best davs — in you. iHargarpt fflaat? Armstrong Senior iHaarnt When Margaret laughs in her baby glee, The world seems fairer and smiles on me — The sunlight is brighter, the world in tune. No matter the weather, it all is June: The cobwebs are banished as worthless chaff, At the silvery peal of hei baby laugh. The rustling of leaves and rippling rills. The sound of the breeze o ' er the summer, hills. The ringing bells in a merry chime. The singing of birds in the warm spring-time, All that is joyous and fair and young Seems mingled to flow from her baby tongue. Through the years to come, when the days are long When the world seems dull and has lost its song. May her rippling laugh rouse the birds again, And waken the brooklets like summer rain; May the cup of life which each one quaffs Seem sweeter and better when Margaret laughs. 19 For civic improvements and all such things Jeannette to the platform lier talent livings. When hair is gray and youth forgot, Chick will still learn C rman at Agnes Scott. Who shall reign as Alabama ' s social queen Through many years? Why, Katharine Dean. The Ladies ' Home Journal shall add one page more, Which Lolah will fill with embroidery lore. With hammer and box and microscope, Geologist Wood shall scan each slope.

With the coining of the year ' 07- ' 08, and with dignity daily piling on our shoulders, the pranks and stunts of Sophomore days seemed a little incongruous. So we resolved to put away such things — but not to forget. Could any one forget, while " Soph. ' 09 " is constantly becoming plainer on the tank ? Each time we see it we think with warm heart, yet with a pang, of those dear, bygone days. But where is the time for such adventures, such deeds of daring when lab. hours are ever with us, and when Mr. Emerton clamors to be heard ? So we were whirled in a round of strenuous study until Adelaide suddenly thought that the old saying, ' ' All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, " might be aj plied to us. With marvelous energy she worked up the Junior Circus. Shades of Barnum and Bailey ! Was there ever quite such a circus ! Many an African exploring expedition would have been cut off in its prime had that marvelous array of animals appeared before it. " Hard study hasn ' t dulled their originality, " and " From the beginning those Juniors were wonders " was heard on all sides. " Yes, " Dr. Arbuckle said, " theirs is the best organized class in college. " Thanks ! ! A few more weeks of work, and then the Freshman party. We could but be pleased to notice the adaptability of the 1910 Class. For had they not most valiently tried to follow the example of last year ' s Sophs when ' they stole away in the night with the ice cream ? The Seniors have been so busy preparing surprises for the rest of the world, that they have been content to leave the Juniors at the head of things, as usual, to let the gold and white float from the mast, unchallenged, unfaded, and in glory all undimmed.

I could plainly hear The songs that 1 loved in the days gone by; 1 am only dreaming those dear girls are near, I said, as 1 turned away with a sigh. Then something moved on the ground at my feel. " We are the memory that cannot pass. " A soft voice said; and a pale face, sweet. Of a daisy, looked into mine from Hie grass.

The drawing rooms were decorated with quantities of ambrosian violets, while the hostess herself was appropriately gowned in a soft I ' obe of royal purple. Their Majesties, Jupiter and Juno, were present, and among the other distinguished guests were her royal highness, the princess Venus, whose hair was fetchingly adorned with a small golden apple ; Count Apollo, and his sister, the countess Diana; Lord Bacchus; Sir Cupid, and General Mars. The conversation turned upon the decline in college spirit which has recently been so evident in educational institutions, especially those of America, hut General Mars maintained that the Crew of a class in a certain Southern college in America showed a spirit of enthusiasm equal to that of Achilles. " Oh, yes, " cried Lady Minerva, " you are speaking of the Sophomore Class of Agues Scott! Truly a wonderful band. of mortals that! " At that juncture the countess Diana remarked that she had been hunting on another planet for the past season and was, therefore, unfamiliar with the exploits of the class in question; whereupon, the other gods hastened to in- form her that the present Sophomore Class had been organized at Agnes Scott as the Freshman Class in 190fi, and had suffered various provoking annoyances from the exceedingly imprudent class of 1909 during this first period of its existence; but when September of this year came, the Sophomore Class displayed itself in its true colors, a mighty band of mortal theme-writers and Trig-grinders, strong in the power of youth and energy. " The first occasion on which these youthful prodigies proved their great sagacity, " remarked the hostess, " was early in October. At 3 o ' clock in the morning, with one accord, they rose from their couches of slumber and very deftly removed from the chambers of the Freshmen quantities of false hair and every shoe the children possessed! " " Thanks be to Jupiter, my father, " Princess Venus murmured, " I was nut a Freshman at Agnes Scott. " " Wise mortals, they, " remarked King Jupiter, " to instruct the Freshmen in the ways of discipline and energy. " 32 " But, oh, " cried Ccmntess Diana, " that is nothing compared to what I have seen them do. Why, on the night of the 31st of October, when I was just beginning my nightly journey, I saw three Sophomores stealthily rolling a large ice cream freezer before them across the campus, out past the gymnasium to the large oak tree beside the power house. At the same time the Freshmen, dreaming of no harm, were making merry with their guests, the Juniors, in the Prop. hall. Swiftly I saw the dark forms of the wily Sopho- mores, one by one, creeping to the trysting place, bringing the Seniors with them. Ah, but those clever mortals made merry as they ate the ice cream that night, " " Ha, ha, ha ! " laughed gay Lord Bacchus. " And the poor little Freshmen danced in their helpless rage like chickens, whose corn had been taken away. " " Indeed, " cried General Mars, " it seems to me that those events are unimportant compared to the tremendous fighting power which those mortal students showed when the presumptuoiis Juniors thought to black their faces three nights later. Oh, it was rare, the vision of the blackened Juniors after the fight! Ha, ha, ha! They reminded me of the Trojans ready to set sail from Troy! " And the gods all joined in a hearty laugh over the appearance of the discomfited Juniors and the trembling Freshmen. " Yes, " remarked the hostess in conclusion, " they always excel as indi- viduals or in a body. When several of their officers were compelled to resign, they elected a new president and secretary with undaunted spirit, and soon they had gained three new members from the class above and were known as the best students in the college. I think it is safe to predict that in after years their Alma Mater will rejoice in the memory of their deeds. " At this point King Jupiter rose and took his leave after expressing his pride in the achievements of his favorite class, and as they departed the various guests were each expressing their pleasure in the knowledge that there were such mortals as the Sophomores of Agnes Scott. nylinmnrr (Class Porm S is for Sophs and something tine. 0 " s for otliers just one year behind; P is for Preps or Academies until May, How they will make it then I can not yet say.

Historian. 38 iFrpsljntatt (Elaaa JJopm Ah! how well Jo I remember, it was in the bright September, We, a crowd of homesiek " Freshies, " came in search of college lore; Sophomores never caught us napping, rather we did the entrapping, And we had the " Procts " all rapping, rapping on our chamber door. We were naughty, I confess it, but forgive us, I implore, We are Freshmen — nothing more. Through nine long months we have grown stronger — " Fresh ies " make mistakes no longer. And of various kinds of knowledge we have laid up quite a store. In writing themes we ' re so proficient, that of English we ' ve sufficient To last us through our college year, not to speak of others here. Such as " Math " and French and Latin over which we nightly pore, For we are Freshmen — nothing more. Deep into the future peering, long I stand here, wondering, fearing, At the many paths of learning which we must yet explore; But I see from out this future come a class as full of virtue, As ever left the college halls in any days of yore. So, there is this high ambition, we must work and reach fruition. And so be Freshmen — never more. Site (jtomt ' a (Eloak )2 CE, long ago, when magic was not despised and folk still believed in the power of the fairies, a little maid sat in a cottage door spinning, while around her the birds sang and the pink petals of the apple blossoms lay scattered on the grass, for it was Ma) 7 and everything in x ature was filled with the joyousness of spring. And happiest of all was the little maid, for though the cottage was an humble one, and the yarn she spun but the coarse, gray wool of the country peasants, yet was she at heart a princess, and all the world is bright when one is only twelve. Presently, as she spun, down the path by the brook came an old woman, bent with age, and travel-worn, as if she had journeyed far. Bending over her stick, she approached the house and asked for a cup of water. " Indeed, you shall have it, grandame, " the child was quick to say, with her loving sympathy. " Rest here a little, while I bring thee a fresh drink from the spring. " She pushed forward her own stool for the old woman and entered the cottage, returning soon with a cup of sparkling water, which her visitor drank as though she had not tasted such water for many a day, as indeed she had not, for the Spring at the Great Oak was famed far over the country. " Thank thee, my child, " she said as she drained the last drop, " may blessings come upon thee for a loving smile and a kind heart. But how is it thou art not playing in the meadows this May weather ? Dost love thy spinning more than play ? " " Xay, " replied the little maid, " but I must earn money for my father and myself, for he is blind and cannot work. It is not the spinning that I mind so much, but I grow tried of the coarse, gray yarn. Oh, if I could but spin bright-colored silks, I would weave — I would weave a cloak that any prince might wish to wear. I would weave it like the sunset, red and gold, or like the blue sky with fleecy clouds, or, perhaps, like yon apple tree, all pink and green. " " And if thou hadst the silk, " asked the old woman, smiling at her eagerness, " wouldst thou spin faithfully, or wouldst thou stop to chat with every passer-by ? " " Oh, indeed, " the little maid replied, " I would work at it whenever I might. As soon as I had finished the gray I would spin the other and not cease till ' twas too dark to see the shuttle. And who knows but what a prince might wear it ? " " Thou art a good child, ' ' said the old dame, laying her hand on the golden curls as she rose to continue her way, " and worthy, indeed, to weave a cloak for a prince ' ' Then from under her mantle she drew a piece of dirty, gray floss and handed it to the girl. " Take this, " she said, " and spin the thread for thy rainbow cloak. Spin faithfully and well, and it will be truly a prince ' s cloak. But, remember, as thou livest so will thy thread be. " Then slowly she walked down the path to the willows by the brook and seemed to melt into their soft green shade while the maiden stood for a time with the bit of floss in her hand and a look of disappointment on her face. What cloak could be woven from such material % Ah, well, doubtless the old woman was in her dotage, perhaps there was enough silk to make a doll ' s cap for the miller ' s little daughter. So with a sigh for her broken hopes she took up her work again and endeavored to think no more of gay-colored silks. When the evening was come and the sun was sinking behind the distant hills, she laid aside the gray yarn and put ou the distaff the bit of floss. But, to her surprise, the thread that she spun was not of dull brown, but of a beautiful rainbow hue that gleamed and sparkled in the sunset light, — the thread of her childish dreams. JSTor did the floss grow less, but remained always the same, no matter how much she spun. And thus she began her magic cloak. The years passed, but she spun on, true to her promise, while the golden years slipped by. Often her companions urged her to join them in their sports, but she remembered the old woman ' s words and smilingly shook her head. The thread was not always rainbow in hue; sometimes it grew a dull gray when she was discouraged or discontented with her humble life, but these dark places grew fewer and fewer as she grew older and learned to hope in the future, and to see through all her trials the guidance of a far wiser Hand than hers. Then, too, there Avere other colors in the magic thread, the soft yellow of her girlish friendships, the pure white of her confirmation vows, and the true blue of loyalty to her aged father. As the seasons passed there were bits of delicate pink, her first thoughts of love and of lovers. Then, one eventful day, a royal hunting party paused at the cottage door, and the prince of the realm drank the sparkling water of the famous spring from the eup that the maiden filled for him. Oh, how she wished the cloak were finished that she might offer it to him and receive a smile of gratitude from his lips! And when the royal party passed on she felt as if somehow the day was darker and the birds sang less sweetly. But the prince, having once found his way to the humble cottage, came again to taste the waters of the spring and to gaze upon the fair young maid who tilled his cup. Soon he came to see the maid alone, and the delicate pink of the thread she spun deepened to rose color. At last one day he asked her hand in marriage, and the pink of her maiden affections changed, like her heart, to the deep red of a woman ' s love. On the eve of her marriage, as she sat spinning the crimson thread, the old woman again appeared before her. She was older and more bent than before, but her face was so lighted with a radiant smile that she was almost beautiful. • ' Thou hast spun well, " she said, as she laid her band on the wheel, " and nobly hast thou lived thy maidenhood. Now thou art no longer a maid but a woman, and ' tis time to cease thy spinning. Thou hast enough for the warp of a royal cloak. " As she spoke, she touched the distaff, and lo! the floss was finished. The maiden looked up at her with rather startled eyes, for the thread had indeed grown ti.i be her very life, and she wondered what would happen now. But ihe old woman saw the look and smiled more gently than before. " Xay, " she said, " thou hast not yet finished thy work. The thread is spun, now thou must weave the cloak. " She drew from under her mantle, not a handful of floss, but a bit of common thread. " When thou art queen, have built in some secluded part of the castle a golden loom, and when thou hast leisure take this thread, and through the warp of thy maidenhood weave the woof of thy true womanhood. So shalt ibou in time weave such a cloak that there shall not be in the whole world its equal in beauty of color or fineness of texture. Thou wilt have many in- terruptions and many things to call- thee away, for a queen ' s life is not an idle one. But forget not the cloak, nor the old woman who gave it to thee. " She laid the bit of thread on the ledge of the spinning wheel and then vanished, Hi- si. it seemed, into the gray shadows of the gathering dusk. When she was gone the maiden took up the bit of thread. But this time she did not doubt. Tenderly she laid it away among the leaves of her Prayer Book, and when the brilliant wedding was over, when the court had again settled down to its usual life, and the golden loom had been built in a tiny room of a tower overlooking the river and the mountains, she stole away from her maidens and began to weave. Yeai ' s came anil went, but still the queen wove on at the golden loom, mingling the rainbow tints of her maidenhood with .the deeper richer hues of her true woman ' s life. And the cloak grew apace, for the thread, like the floss, remained ever the same no matter how much she wove, but the colors varied as her life. There was the deep red of her perfect love, tender yellow — the love of a little child, — and the royal purple of her queenly rule. There was, too, the long thread of black when the king was brought home dead from ihe wars and she sought comfort iu her widowhood in the silence of her lonely chamber. And the comfort came in the end, for the black was mingled with silver as she watched her stalwart sons grow to manhood about her and saw how her daughters blossomed into womanly beauty. Often when the young folks were filling the palace with their merry din sbe would watch them smilingly for a while, and then would steal away to weave some new tint into the magic cloak. She loved the quiet room with its view of the river and the distant mountains; and as she gazed out over the sunlit peaks she thought of those other days when she had come over them for the first time as a simple village maiden, and the thread in her hands w T as the tender gray of memory. Then as the gray came into her hair and her hands grew soft and wrinkled with the coming years, there shone through the thread a tiny gleam of gold, the bope of another life that comes when this grows old, — a gleam thai deepened as it grew till it overshadowed all the gray, and it seemed as if the thread she wove were pure gold. She was old, now, and as she sat by the window one evening, with the sunlight falling softly on the golden threads, she sighed as she thought how near the cloak was to completion, — her life ' s work, — and yet she smiled, too, as she thought of what it would be when at last the thread should cease and her life, like the cloak, shoidd be finished. She wondered if the old woman had forgotten her, or if she would come again as she had come before, only this time there would be no need of another gift. And as sbe thought she glanced up, and there in the slanting sunlight stood the old woman, — or was it an angel ? For her face was filled with a light as if from Heaven, and her voice when she spoke had a more than earthly sweetness. Softly sbe laid her hand on the bowed bead. " It is finished, " she said, and, stooping, cut the golden thread. " Well bast thou woven, as thou hast spun well, and precious shall be thy reward. See, " she held up the cloak, and its rainbow colors seemed to live in the soft light, " it is indeed fit for a prince to wear, fit for the Prince of Peace. " Ilie queen ' s face seemed to catch some hint of bidden light and to grow like the face of the angel. " 1 am glad, " she said simply. When the sunlight had gone and when the darkness had settled down, they found her sitting by the loom, tin still hands yet clasping the folds of the ' cloak. " She has died as she lived, " they said. " Ah. what a happy death it must have been! " Then tenderly they carried her away, but the cloak was left lying still on the edge of the loom. A little page, lingering after the others, picked it up and threw it around his shoulders. " How beautiful it is, " he said. And then he thought of the beautiful queen who had made it, and how she had been as good as she was beautiful, and of all the uoble deeds that she had done. She had ruled her people so wisely and so well, he was sure that in all the world there was none like her, and deep in his heart he resolved, as he touched the soft folds, that he, ' to,,, would grow wise and good, and would try to help others to be as pure and as noble as his queen had been. It was a true resolve and years after people listened to the great preacher who taught them so tenderly, ' and who lived so well the truths he taught. But the little page was called to his duties and left the cloak lying in the moonlight, till the new king found it, and as he carried it away he praved that he might rule his people as well as had his mother. When the queen was buried some said that the cloak should he buried with her. but the king shook his head. " I am sure she would not wish it, " he said, so it was hung on the wall of the great anteroom, where every subject prince or beggar, might look upon it. And it seemed as if the good queen ' s influence still lived in it, for it was like some holy picture, that whosoever might look upon it should be cheered. The widow, bowed with her recent grief, saw the band of black and was comforted as she thought how the queen, too, had suffered, for it seemed as if she would sorrow with her- the little child, fevered and fretful, forgot his pain and smiled at the bright colors ; and the old man, despondent over the lost hopes of bis vouth awoke to see the golden threads in his own gray cloak of life. Thousands passed through the old hall as the years went by, and few there were whose lives were not changed in some degree by that sight of the " Magic Cloak " — for so they called it— though the king knew, and the great teacher, that its onlv magic was that of a life well lived and a task ungrudgingly performed ind to this day they tell, in that land, of the peasant maid who became a queen and of the beautiful cloak she wove, whose warp was her pure maidenhood, and whose woof was her womanhood without a stain, the " cloak of a blameless life.

Court is now open ! Court is now open ! " Following the sheriff came the clerk of the court, and then the two lawyers, all with stern countenances, and with their black robes producing an effect of extreme solemnity. The clerk took his seat at his desk, piled high with the codes, legal documents, etc. ; the lawyers had their places on opposite sides of the judge ' s bench. As the sheriff reentered, escorting Judge J. D. M. Armistead, the at- torneys and clerk rose, standing until he reached his bench, when he announced, " Court Is convened, " and all were seated. On the order of the JudgeP the sheriff " now brought in the prisoner, handcuffed, and fastened her securely in the box. The docket was read by the clerk, " The case of- Agnes Scott Commonwealth versus Ludlow. " The two lawyers announced " Ready, " and with great unction the clerk read the charge, " The Commonwealth of Agnes Scott does here- by charge one Louise Hunt Ludlow, spinster, of said Commonwealth, with having fraudu- lently, maliciously, and with intent to deceive, attempted to impose upon the good citizens of the Commonwealth, by assuming the dignity and perquisites of a college student. " " Prisoner at the bar. stand, " said the Judge. " You have heard the charge as read. Do you plead guilty or not guilty? " " Not guilty, your Honor. " " Prisoner at the bar, be seated. The clerk will now read the panel of the jury. " After reading the entire panel, the clerk called forward the first person. She came, and. after answering questions of the Judge, the oath was administered to her by the clerk. " Hold up your right hand, " said the clerk. " Do you solemnly and In the presence of this ho ' norable company swear that you will give a true verdict according to the testimony of the witnesses? " •I do, " answered the juror, and was shown to her seat in the jury-box. Questioned by the Judge, the occupations of the jurors varied from that of a washerwoman and seller of false puffs, up to a reader of Dickens and Thackeray. When one E. Fuller was brought forward, and the Judge asked if the attorneys had any objections to. her as a juror, the attorney for the Commonwealth answered, " None, your Honor; " but the counsel for the defendant, " I have, your Honor. " " State your objections. " " The. prisoner once laughed in this juror ' s ear. thereby causing deafness. She is preju- diced. " " Is this true? " the Judge said to the juror. " It is. your Honor. " " Stand aside. " Another juror, M. Hill, came to be sworn in, but the counsel for the defendant again objected, " Your Honor, she is too tall. " " Stand aside, " said the Judge. When the twelve jurors had taken the oath, the Commonwealth ' s attorney stated that he would prove the prisoner guilty of the crime alleged, and in doing so called forward, as first witness, Dr. H. B. Arbuckle, chairmau of the college classification committee. After answering questions as to his occupation, and knowledge of the prisoner, he was administered the oath by the clerk. " Do you solemnly swear, in giving evidence for or against this prisoner, to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? " " I dfo. " He then took his seat on the witness stand. Leading questions asked by the Common- wealth ' s attorney revealed the facts that the prisoner had applied for college entrance, offering Greek, Latin, English and Trigonom- etry, but was unconditionally refused because of lack of preparation. On cross-examination, the counsel for the defense asked, " You are sure you have not forgotten this matter? " The witness was cer- tain. " Did you not forget to come to your Geology class on the fifteenth of November? " " I can never remember dates. " Other witnesses were called, telling of deeds that showed the prisoner ' s attempt to usurp dignity, and of her general bad character. One revealed that she had had a " crush, " a thing of too high a character for academy girls to know of. " I would like to ask a question. " said the Judge. " For the enlightenment of myself and the jury, I will ask the witness to define ' crush ! ' " ' " Certainly, your Honor. In my readings of Dickens and Thackeray, I have deduced this definition : ' A " crush " is at first a psycho- logical insight into the character of a new- found individual, an insight gained by means of a philosophical research, published forth to the world by scientific methods and indications, and proved to be everlasting by intuition and the help of a subconscious current of dreams and intellectual probing of grey matter. ' " " Yes, yes ! I am sure we all understand perfectly. Proceed. " The counsel for the defense rose and stated that she was going to prove that the prisoner was not guilty of the crime alleged. In doing this, she first called forward the principal of the academy, whose testimony revealed that the prisoner had never studied the subject named by Dr. Arbuckle. Upon cross-examina- tion, she could not state that the prisoner had n»t attempted their study, outside of the academy. The attorney then called others to prove the prisoner ' s upright character, and lack of attempting any assumption of college dignity. When the last witness had been called for the defense, the prosecuting attorn to make her speech. After addressing herself to the Judge and the jury, she attempted to show the superiority of her witnesses, because of their more advanced and honorable posi- tions. She then summed up her testimony, ending thus : " I think I have proved conclu- sively that this prisoner is guilty of the crime alleged. What. now. will be done? If she is allowed to go unpunished, others, hearing of her success will attempt the same deed. Gentlemen of the jury, you now have it in your power to uphold or trample under foot the dignity of this college. Which will you do? It must be upheld, and I am sure that each of you, being of such high character and intellectual ability, realize the fact, and so I have no fear in committing the case to you. " The counsel for the defense now rose and addressed the Judge and the gentlemen of the jury. She then proceeded, one by one, to show the incapacity of the witnesses of the Commonwealth to give testimony, and the superiority of those for the defense. After summing up her testimony, she made an im- passioned appeal to the jury : " Just look, O jurors, at our prisoner ; you can see the very innocence written upon her countenance. How can you, men of feeling, look into her innocent face, and then pronounce her guilty? Think of Her after life if she should be called guilty of such a base and infamous crime ' ■ Think of her parents at home, on hearing of such an outrage ! Have you not sympathy and compassion for her and her family? And how can you with your full understanding and appreciation of the whole affair punish this innocent victim of the fair land of Agnes Scott? " Judge Armistead then made his charge to the jury. He admonished them to consider well the evidence given, and to give a true. verdict as to the culpability of the prisoner, according to the testimony of highest char- acter. The sheriff conducted the jury to the jury- room and court was adjourned for three minutes. At the end of that time ' they re- turned, and the foreman gave in a verdict of " guilty. " The prisoner began to weep. " Prisoner at the bar, stand up, " said the Judge. She rose, her sobs still violent. " Y ' ou have heard the verdict. I now order that the sheriff take up to your celh where you shall remain for two days, living only on bread and water. " The sobs were now so loud that the counsel for the defendant had to speak to her before she was quiet enough for Judge Armistead to proceed. He then continued : " After this you are to report to Miss Y ' oung. the principal of the academy, and for four months shall work hard on such tasks as she sets. During this time, you shall wear your hair in two plaits, commonly called pigtails, as a sign that you have become a humble academy student, with no designs to enter the college. " The sheriff led the prisoner out still sob- bing wildly, and the Judge and lawyers re- tired amidst a babel of voices. DR. MARTIN The chronicles of Agnes Scott for 1908 would be perhaps incomplete with- out some allusion to what has been one of the best things of the year, Dr. Mary T. Martin ' s presence among us as resident physician. Those of us who never knew before that doctors are good for some other things besides pills and plasters, realize that fact now, for though one of Dr. Martin ' s long suits is pills, she is the jolliest of chape rones and the most sympathetic of advisers. With the disposition to smile, and incidentally make the rest of us smile " when everything goes dead wrong, " naturally her influence has been felt for happiness and sunshine everywhere. There are few students whom she has not known and fewer still whom she has not benefited; among other excellent amendments to A. S. C. ' s constitution, the five-hour exercise law and the wet weather regulations are things for which our mothers may thank her. With a splendid mind and a big heart, Dr. Martin has done for us, as was said of another woman, " what she could, " and it only remains to be said that there are few things she could not do. Winning the admiration of Agnes Scott at her entrance, Dr. Martin leaves wi th the love of many and the friendship of all. May she be to others what she has been to us, and may her lines be cast in pleasant places. 48 AURORA STAFF .MARY DILLAP.D. M. L. S.j Editor-in-Chief ASSOCIATE EDITORS DOROTHEA SNODGRASS, P. L. S.

LADY MAUDE MONTGOMERY MUSICAL MANAGER INEZ WILKINSON It is felt, and certainly ardently hoped, that the organization of a Dramatic Club this year at Agnes Scott will marls a permanent movement forward in the development of the college, in fields hitherto but little ex- plored. Although scarcely a year has gone by without one play or more being presented, the matter has never before been under definite management, or been an assured feature of the year. Whereas the club is young and more or less on probation, hopes for its future success and growth are flourish- ing. And quite a bit of encouragement was indeed afforded when the club actually ob- tained consent from Dr. Gaines, to allow a select number of young gentlemen to be present at the first play; and more than that, when after personal inspection it was deemed that the wearing of bloomers might be suitably permitted. The first play having come off with much success, the club feels reasonably hopeful that something decidedly worth while will eventually be accomplished, and it is even holding quite practical visions of soon starting its own " greenroom. " Miss Cady and Miss Montgomery have proved of invaluable assistance in its organization, both sparing neither time nor trouble in the re- hearsals and in helping with the general management. The entire student body, both of the college and academy, have taken great interest in the first play, and with their " con- tinued support, we need not limit the goal to be reached by the club. g uplj mtmtB (Ulub ' Of all sad words of tongue or pen.

" ®Ijp Huttatuaij (Strl " UT, Floyd, " she said, with tear-stained face, yet not forgetting to hold her pink muslin ruffles away from the tomato vines, " yon might as well stop talking about that, stop thinking about it! I ' ve told you Aunt Mary would as soon think of letting me enter the Salvation Army as marry you ! You needn ' t think it ' s just my imagination! She ' s been watch- ing me suspiciously with that Gorgon eye of hers for a week, now, and making all sorts of excuses to talk to your father — about business, she says! About you and me, is the truth of the matter! Why, just last night he talked to her out on the front porch till after twelve o ' clock, and then when she came in the house and found me in the hall, she — she looked like she wanted to m — murder me ! " Floyd, I lenow she ' s going to send me back to that boarding school, and you will have to go to Mexico, and oh, oh, oh, " she ended in a despairing wail, while the hopeful youth of twenty-one did his best to comfort her, as far as the garden wall and wet tomato vines allowed. ' " Florence, " he said, " you may just count upon it, you ' re not going back to school, and I ' m not going to Mexico, unless you go with me. I ' m twenty- one, and you are eighteen, both of us old enough to take matters in our own hands, I guess ! " " But, Floyd, she ' ll n-e-e-ver forgive me, I say, and, oh, I ' ll just die if she looks at me any more the way she did 1-last night ! " But it is a fact of not infrequent occurrence in the world, that a girl of eighteen years allows her inclinations and her delight in feeling herself the victim of a great and all-absorbing passion to overcome her fear of a cruel aunt ' s uncompromising will, and a youth of twenty-one seldom fails to have sufficient confidence in his independent judgment. That is why it was arranged that promptly at five o ' clock on the following afternoon, Florence should appear at the same garden wall, suit-case in hand, prepared for a journey of indefinite length. The next day passed in a flutter of hasty packing and avoiding Aunt Mary ' s all-seeing eye. Fortunately, for the inexperience of a mind entirely unaccustomed to such romantic adventures, and for the irrepressible excite- ment that made her cheeks burn and took away all reasonable knowledge of where to find things and how to pack them, Aunt Mary herself seemed pre- occupied, and not particularly desirous of her niece ' s companionship. 85 At five o ' clock, with unaccustomed promptness, a thoroughly excited young lady, with a large and heavy suit-case was seen to run swiftly down the length of a rain-drenched vegetable garden, never forgetting to hold her smart, green skirts away from the cabbages and butterbean vims. At the garden gate, a young man with red hair, and an air of great importance caused by the marriage license in his pocket, was pacing swiftly and im- patiently up and rlown, and turned with a sigh of relief, when the rustle of the green dress met his ear. That was no time for affectionate greetings, when a cruel aunt might easily be watching from the window above, so taking the suit-case from her hand, Mr. Floyd Sanders, Jr., led the way to a side street, safe from Aunt Mary ' s watchful eyes; but, once cut of danger, the anxious lines in Florence ' s face relaxed, and, hand in hand, the two ran down the street, laughing like two truant school children, for eloping is no very serious matter to eighteen and twenty-one. and the thought of the surprised and sad bewilderment their elders would experience when it was all too hue increased the light-hearted happiness which the sunshine of an afternoon in May brings to a sentimental two. The bishop ' s home was just three blocks away, and with excitement that grew more intense every minute the two young runaways walked boldly up the steps and rang the bell. " Safe at last, " said Floyd, and they stood laughing foolishly, until the maid appeared and ushered them into the presence of the Reverend Bishop Reed. " We — want you to marry us, sir! " blurted Mr. Sanders, Jr., an un- comfortable warmth coming over his face. " Marry you! Don ' t you think you ' d better go back to school and think over the matter a few years longer, first ? " This disconcerting reply served only to increase the embarassment of the young people, which had naturally lie™ sufficiently great before, but at last the young man succeeded in convincing the bishop that he wanted to be married right then, on the spot, and the- pleading of the bishop ' s pretty wife helped the cause; and, so, with Mrs. Reed and the cook for witnesses, the service began. With a sense of the solemnity of their wildly-begun adventure just beginning to dawn upon them, the- youthful couple listened to the service, until the bishop turned to Floyd. " Wilt thou have this woman to be thy — " " Oh, Floyd, look, look, quick! " screamed Florence, grasping the arm of that young gentleman, and pulling him forcibly away from the window, while the bishop dropped his prayer book, and through the window, Mrs. Reed and Floyd saw Aunt Mary and Mr. Sanders, the elder, coming up the steps. ' •Eight in here, conic quickly, and do be quiet, " said the kind-hearted little Mrs. Reed, almost pushing the thoroughly frightened young people into the next room, and returning to the library just in time to greet the older couple. In the bishop ' s study, next door, Florence and Floyd clung to each other and listened fearfully and tremblingly for the word which was to be their doom; but apparently [Mr. Sanders was in no great haste to speak it. After a few dry remarks about the weather and the condition of the cotton market, an embarrassed silence followed. Then finally the voice of Mr. Sanders appeared to speak with great difficulty, to the bishop. " As no doubt you are aware, sir, T — have a son, who is now twenty-one years of age, and very much inclined to have opinions of his own, and Miss Roberts, also, has been entrusted with the care of an excellent niece, who is somewhat hard to please! Of late, we have noticed these two young people very much in each other ' s company, and have come to the conclusion — ahem! — that they have noticed, and object to, the growing intimacy which they have observed between Miss Roberts and — myself. Therefore, with a view to avoiding their certain displeasure, we have concluded .to come quietly, without their knowledge, to your house, and ask you to solemnize our marriag — " Florence and Floyd were gazing at each other with utter bewilderment in their eyes, till, all at once, a burst of comprehension coming to them both, the door flew open, and two excited children rushed upon the astonished couple " Oh. Aunt Mary, Aunt Mary, who would have thought it of you! You, to run away like this, when I thought all the tiim — Oh! Oh! You nearly sc-scared»me to death! ' ' lint Mr. Sanders, the younger, was plainly master of the situation. " Seeing that all parties are present, and no objections on either side, T can find no reason why a double marriage should not take place immediately, " said the young gentleman, calmly. " You — you two! " Aunt Mary and Mr. Sanders stared at each other in complete astonishment. The old gentleman rose to his feet. " Ffow, " he said, and drew his handkerchief across his brow, " how did you ever manage to keep it such a secret? " Geealdixe Hood, ' 10. A DAY AT AGONY SCOTT. Sjarft ultmea You ask why so thin I have recently grown, And so silent — indeed there ' s a reason. At Agnes Scott now, they ' re so wise, be it known, That English is quite out of season. If by chance you are slated for Miss Treben ' s Tische, Con your Worterbuch well is my sermon ; For if bread or potatoes or aught else you wish, You must know how to ask it in German. And when you have eaten, not perhaps all you want, But all that to ask for you ' re able, Entschuldigen Sie mich or Mahlzeit you must say. Ere you thankfully rise from the table. Do you think in your native tongue then to converse, And feel thankful your troubles are mending? Nay, Miss Colton awaits, a French play to rehearse, With French conversation unending. For Parlez-vous francaisf and Sprechen Sie Deutsch? You have somebody ask you each minute; And if nothing but English you know how to speak, You feel woefully lost and not in it. Jeannette Brown. Hftaufo JBimtgfltttm} Though Miss Montgomery " came to Agnes Scott only this year, it has taken but a very short part of that time to win for her the admirati on, as well as hearty support of all. In the very beginning we found her capable, competent, amid all the newness of her surroundings, and we are still striving to attain that perfection in gym- nastics, which her example has constantly kept before us. Although too much can scarcely be said for the remarkable efficiency that Miss Mont- gomery displays in her department, it is for some- thing outside of the gymnasium itself that we will remember her. This is the addition of a new sport to the athletic life of the college. It is owing tn her efforts and influence that we have obtained a hockey field, and her interest and enthusiasm have been a splendid stimulus. She has introduced several new indoor games, and proved an excellent coach ami umpire in the old realm of basket- ball, to say nothing of the aid she has given in a quite different dir ection, that in connection with the Dramatic Club, where she has shown the fine versatility of genuine ability. But the position of physical director, here, seems fated to be short, for Miss Montgomery ' s memory with all it conveys and embodies, is all that she will have to Agnes Scott for another year. How- ever, we feel that, ' tis better to have hail ami lost, than never to have had at all.
