I, Nobody, since the fate of Everygirl I know, Am here to speak this prologue, ' — tell you how she came to go To Agnes Scott, where all the scenes in this our drama lie: When Everygirl did conquer high school and for college sigh, As then she deeply pondered, standing with reluctant feet Just where those sharp divisions known as brook and river meet, Then suddenly stood Rumor, mirrored in the crystal stream, And spake with words well painted, and with voice as in a dream: " I, Rumor, sent from Agues Scott to speak to all the fair Am come to tell you of all the pleasant things that wait you there. There Learning, whom you wish to seek, doth hold his councils dread To which do flock all languages — the living and the dead; And Science, Art, and Lit ' rature, the servants of this king, Are taught by young professors wise, who know ' most everything. For her who comes to seek him and her life at college lives Great Learning has a B. A. which he after four years gives. " Thus saying, Rumor vanished. Everygirl cried on the spot, — " Oh, I will seek thee, Learning, and I ' ll go to Agnes Scott! " JLj .1 i. JL Mm.

Freshman History fcrliESH from the home and its sacred fireside ; from the little church ■ where the sunlighl came through the old, stained windows; fresh WW from the graduating class where flowers and frills and furbelows made our new dignity glorious; fresh from the social circle in which we were about to be acknowledged as " ladies " ; just fresh, — that ' s all ! The family circle announced the decision : The graduate could go to college. Wet eyes and good-byes. A seat in the Pullman — loneliness, desolation, and heart-longings. The trip made, and then the crowds of strange faces and unfamiliar scenes and streets. The college reached — up the long, front walk, past the groups of whispering, laughing girls, and into the tall, brick buildings, imposing iu their cold newness. Our Freshman history had indeed begun, and the rapid succession of the past few days was left a misty, incoherent dinwiess in our minds. " Alices in Wonderland, " we were soon royally initiated into the unknown mysteries of the " rat ' s " life by the serious and impressionistic orders of the Sophs. Expected to cringe before their awe-inspiring dignity and imperious demands, our Freshman mind turned to the all-absorbing question of the day arbitration. Why make a barbarous repetition of the fight of days gone by ' ( Why, just because one cold, bleak morning a troop of white apparitions interrupted our dreams of home and made us a ghostly presentation of a " set of rules, " display an ante-bellum spirit ? By quiet submission to the letter of the law we triumphantly turned the tables on the Sophs, and, by our action, made an appeal to reason, which suspended the " factious warfare " of the previous ages. The Freshmen, poor, ignorant, untried babies, proved the great pacificators of the day and set a precedent worthy of exemplification by the classes which are yet to come to Agues Scott. Three cheers for our Freshman Class of 1916 which settled the discordant element toward the Sophs by the heretofore untried plan of arbitration ! 18 . ..

May every Freshman of the year 1 ! ) 1 :i carry to the home of her childhood that freshness of ardor, purity, and purpose that make college life worth while! And may that home-coming after the first year at college ever be a fresh, new wreath upon the brow of every true girl who awaits this blessed time ! A. M., ' 16. jTresJjman Cla0s poem Hero ' s to our Freshman year of college life! Here ' s to its liope and fear, its toil and strife. Its brightness and despair, its gloom and fun; Here ' s to the things we ' ve learned with hitter tears. Here ' s to the things we ' ve tried with foolish fears. Here ' s to the things we ' ve planned for future years. — The things we ' ve done and those we ' ve left undone Perhaps we ' ve lost some battles bravely fought. Perhaps the victories won were dearly bought: What matters that if ours is not the blame? Missteps and errors often must creep in : To err unwittingly is not to sin: Our best ideals we can never win: — ' Tis only lack of effort calls for shame. Behind, then, let us leave all vain regret : Our tears, our cares, our worries let ' s forget. And bravely look the future in the face. Without a pause for shirking or for rest. On let us march, — on, on. with noble zest. To turn our " good " to " better " and to " best, " And win by worthy work an honored place. 19 Piety and Every girl come in arm in arm.. IETV Y. W. sends a bid by me To ask you for your company. To kelp run Homesickness away, Ske holds a reception to-day. If you will wear your calling card, To meet the girls will not be hard. They ' ll entertain you in the shade, While Charlotte serves you lemonade. (Continued on Page 26) 20 Cabinet of Young Women ' s Christian Association President Charlotte Jackson Secretary Lottie May Blair Vice-President Marion Black Treasurer Elizabeth Joiner Jackson McConnell Black Blair Joiner Enzor Harris Conns Towers Hill ■3 Young Women ' s Christian Association ORKING ever toward a more complete fulfillment of the motto, " To bring every girl to Christ, to build her up in Christ, to send her out for Christ, " the Young Women ' s Christian Association of Agnes Scott has come to be one of the most potent factors in the life of the college. With the constant help and sympathy of the Faculty and a spirit of hearty cooperation from the students, it h as been an inspiring task to seek a carrying out of the lines of work planned by the various committees; and, to crown the whole " , there has been divine blessing- greater than could be asked or thought. A membership of ninety -five per cent, of the student body ; nine mission study classes ; forty-six girls enrolled in the Bible study classes, besides those who are studying the International Sunday-Sehool Lessons ; a budget of six hundred and forty dollars ; and a strong spirit of comradeship and mutual interest among the girls, — these are some of the things which have brought about greater usefulness of the Association during the past year. Among the many sources of inspiration and of spiritual benefit, there stands out preeminently the Young .Women ' s Christian Association Council in November, when Agnes Scott had as guests representatives from various Georgia schools, who were led in a study of m ore effectual Association methods by ' Miss Oolooab Burner, .Miss Anna I). Casler, Miss Mary Dudley Powell, and Miss Mary Fleming Porter. We also had the privilege of having a series of meetings in February conducted by Miss Bertha Conde of New York, the senior secretary of the National Board. Thus, as we look back on the work of the past and catch a vision of greater tilings yet to be accomplished, we feel that " surely goodness and mercy have fol- lowed us, " and that we can work with deeper interest until the Association shall bring every girl at Agnes Scott to the broadest development, — physically, socially, mentally, spiritually, — to " the fullness of the measure of the stature of Christ.

So much happened in those few days, each moment being filled with something that we wanted to remember to bring back to our fellow-students. And oh ! how we longed for each girl at Agnes Scott to share with us those inspiring gatherings where our souls came in touch with such wonderful and enthusiastic men as Rev. Chas. Hounshell, Dr. F. W. Ayers, and Prof. Chas. R. Foster and others. Never can we tell of the feeling which overcame vis when we visited the Berry School. This is such a wonderful place and we, as Agnes Scott girls, feel a keen interest in this school. Girls could not be more enthusiastic than we are. The atmosphere of the whole Convention was overpowering. The gathering of so many students, all with the same purpose, brought more clearly than ever to each delegate the truth of this purpose and what it really means to us and especially to others. No college could have been more hospitable than Shorter ; none could have been more suited for the Convention ; and no days could have been more profit- ably spent than those memorable days of the 1912 Convention. 24 Delegates to Rome Scene 4 g t)t MtttfS g orietp Everygirl passes by on a rush with Society.

She talks with all the other Innocents ; They simply can not tell you what to do, For they all know " green " stands for " ignorance ' And yet you feel " homesick " if you are " blue.

No, we disclaim the honor of being green on that first day. We were all-wise, all-know- ing, and had the world in a swing. True, we were from Hillsborough, Pikesville, and even from Griffin, but we had won our little high-school diplomas, and had been envied by the first-graders. And now we were entering college, and all around ns shone the light of self-satisfaction. Oh, but that we could have seen ourselves as others saw us ! How many heartaches and useless little fits of temper and indignation we would have been spared. They told us we were green, and our minds needed training; and therefore we must take Latin and even cut p frogs to develop these small spots of intellect, This was, indeed, a heart-rending blow to our conceited opinions of ourselves, but we stood it all and determined to " Do our duty, as we understood it. " But why dwell longer on this unfortunate period ' . For we can see now that we were green — green as those little frogs. But were Ave not all green at some time of our lives ' . And so, we look back on those days with only the most pleasant memories. Xow the Freshman green changes to the Sophomore purple, — the royal purple, — and we lay aside our humble, babyish demeanors and take on the look that for years past has characterized all Sophomores. We would have nothing so undignified as the roly-poly Freshman-Sophomore fight of previous years. This was our first resolution. Therefore, in its place is recorded, for the first time in the history of Agues Scott, the firm and " must-be-obeyed " rules by Sophomores for the governing and directing of all Freshmen. They wore their hair in pigtails and gave to us most reverential bows as they passed ; and so we ruled them with a rod of iron and started them out just right in their college lives. But this history would not be complete without including our famous political speeches delivered in the recent United States Presidential election held at Agnes Scott. Thus we see our class conquering all obstacles and winning new laurels in every field ; and, with firm steps and steadfast purposes, wending our way toward the coveted goal in the year of 1915.

Blue McNULTY THE SILHOUETTE f The Ship of 1914 3T was a sunshiny day in September when, on the Ship of 1914, we sailed from the port of School-land into the great College Ocean for a four- year voyage. There were sad farewells at parting. Copious tears were mingled with the salt seas of the ocean, but the fascinations of a first voyage upon an unknown sea gradually dried our tears. An attack from a pirate ship in the early part of our sailing in the Freshman Gidf made us gather our forces, and brought us to know each other. Gloriously we sustained the attack and hurled the pirates themselves into the green waves. All before us we read our future in the red and gray of the clouds. We saw the gray days to come, but we saw, too, the many to be marked with red letters when, in future times, we should tell tales of our travels. So it was that we chose for our colors the garnet and the gray. Tt was May when we left the Freshman Gulf behind us and sailed through the narrow Strait of Summer. It was a dangerous voyage, the most dangerous, we had been told, of all our voyage. The ship rocked perilously, and when it came through, safely at last, into the Sea of Soph some were gone. But it was no time for tears. Forward we went into the Sea of Soph. The horizon broadened before us. As old sailors, we felt our importance. We touched at a port called Vacationdais. Here we all went ashore, but when the ship sailed out again and when the roll was called one or two had failed to return. The rest of us went on again and, as we saw the quiet waters of Junior Life before us all, our old enthusiasm came back. Ever and anon we caught glimpses of a beautiful sea beyond. Rumors came back to us of the delight of the sea, and we lived in our dreams of what was to come. " Never mind ! " we told each other, " we ' ll reach it by and by. " We sighted the Island of Christmas, but, as we looked out upon it and past, it seemed but a dream-fancy after all. And then there loomed up large before us the Rocks of Exams. We passed them, also. The Senior Sea seems to draw nearer. The Junior Sea is almost past. The waves dance so in the sunlight we can not see what is ahead. So now we have chosen to sail down the Channel of Great Expectations. Saratt G. Hanselt,. 112 3[unior Poem Sometimes when in the busy days There comes a time for thought. We wonder if we have always Our battles strongly fought; And if the motto of our class — " Be happy, work, and live " — Has guided us each day we pass: Did we our best work give?

The congregation was deeply touched and rev- erent, and John Thornton, sitting in his accustomed place, was impatient that he could not enter into the Christmas spirit that seemed to hover over the people that morning. He was young, a Christian, and highly held in the congre- gation of the large city church, but somehow he couldn ' t realize the joy of Christinas. The organ pealed forth the strains of an old Christmas carol, and the choir and the whole congregation arose: " While shepherds watched their flocks by night, All seated on the ground, The angel of the Lord came down, And glory shone around. " Another figure in the back of the church was drinking in the song to which the man paid so little attention. Never before had she heard the Christmas carol, and she was thrilled with its sweetness. She was only a little cash girl who worked in a big department store and lived in a " poor- house " in the slums. She had stolen away to-day to see if 124 THE AURORA she could find out what Christmas really is, having seen it on the big signs and heard people crying it — " ' Fear not, ' said he, for mighty dread Had seized their troubled minds. ' Good tidings of great joy I bring To you and all mankind. ' " The last phase of this verse caught the man ' s attention. The angel brought great joy to all mankind, and yet he felt no joy. He tried to think of something he needed to make him happy, but he had all he wanted. It was true he needed new stationery for his polite correspondence. " I ' ll go to- morrow and get it, and perhaps mixing with the crowd will do me good, " he concluded. The pinched form in the rear of the church was listening eagerly to the choir as it told of the birth of a Baby who was given to the world to be a blessing and a joy. " I never did know what it was fer before, " she thought, half satisfied; " but I reckon ' good tidin ' s fer all mankind ' don ' t mean no sech es me. I ain ' t goin ' to get no joy, and, besides, I ain ' t never seen no baby. " Still her little heart was happy to know that Christmas was more than a day that you don ' t have to work, or a sign, or something to buy. Softly she slipped out of the church when the white-haired pastor had pronounced the benedic- tion, and her eager little face wore a glad light upon it. The pastor had noticed her in the back of the church; had tried to reach her, but she was gone. " There ' s one soul that has caught a real gleam of Christ- mas glory, " he remarked to John Thornton, pointing out the little gown that was disappearing in the crowd. The man caught one glimpse of her bright little face as she turned to dodge a car. " I envy her, " he said, rather sadly, as he turned to go. " and all mankind " 125 II The big department store was jammed with " last-minute " customers on the day before Christmas. The air was close and stifling. The clerks, wilted and worn out, tried to keep their tempers, but the strain on them was terrible and had been for two weeks. There were flushed cheeks and aching throats, tired eyes and feet. " Cash girl! " called one poor, tired thing as she sold the irritable old lady the paper of black pins she had been fuss- ing over for fully five minutes. " Gee, but I ' m tired! " she sighed, rubbing her hand wearily across her forehead. " Something for you, ma ' am? Cash girl ! Where do you suppose Jenny is ? Poor thing ! she ' s nearly worked to death. " The calm, unruffled individual at the next counter was about the only self-possessed human in the store. " Oh, there ' s no use to get so excited over it, " she said disdainfully, tapping the counter with well-polished finger nails, carefully adjusting her puffs, and smiling sweetly at the floor-walker. " Something for you, sir? " she inquired indifferently of the tall young man who stood waiting, evidently bored by this contact with the crowd. " I want stationery — monogram stationery — like that up there. " He pointed high up on the shelf with a gold-headed cane. The girl adjusted her puffs and proceeded leisurely to take down the desired box. " Nothing else ?— Cash girl ! " she called. " Jenny ' s doing something for me now, " said the tired girl at the next counter. " Well, I ' m going to have her now; she ' s done nothing all day but bring you water. Come here, Jenny. " 126 THE AUEOEA Jenny hesitated, glad of a chance to rest for a moment, for her poor little body was aching from the strain. " I ' m faint, and Jenny ' s going for me, " ventured the tired girl. " This gentleman wants his package, " — adjusting the puffs, — " come on, Jenny, hurry! " John Thornton, counting out his change, smiled at the dissension. As he laid the money on the counter, a quarter rolled off on the floor, unnoticed by him. " Change a quarter short, " announced the Miss Indiffer- ence, as she counted it. Jenny, wavering between two decisions, had seen it fall. Quickly she darted through the crowd to where it lay. " Here ' s your quarter, sir, " she said, plucking the great John Thornton by the sleeve. He looked down quickly at the frail little figure and started. Here was the very same face he had seen at the church the day before — the same face and the same enviable expression. " Hey, what? " he exploded in his astonishment. " Here ' s yer quarter ye dropped, " she explained, smiling up at him. The words of the pastor came back to him : — " There ' s one soul that has caught a real gleam of Christmas glory. " " Just keep the quarter, won ' t you ? " he managed to say briefly. A wonderful expression of joy flooded the face of the cash girl. " Me ? — you — mean me ? " she faltered. " Yes, " he smiled; " buy something for your Christmas that will make you happy. " Oh! " she gasped. " How lov-ee-ly; thank you! oh, thank you! I ' ll buy me some good tidin ' s like they sing about, " and, squeezing his hand thankfully, she darted away with the package. " and all mankind " 127 " Poor little thing, " he thought, as he made his way out of the store, " she doesn ' t even know what good tidings are. " The expression recalled to him the words of the song he had heard on Sunday morning: — " Good tidings of great joy I bring To you and all mankind. " He wondered as he entered his ear if he himself knew what the good tidings really meant — they had meant nothing much until he had seen the little girl ' s happy face. Somehow he felt in his heart more of the glow of excitement than ever before, and he wondered why. The " good tidings of great joy " were beginning to be to him as he had wished. " To you and all mankind " — — - It sang itself over and over, and his brain was just beginning to comprehend what it all meant. " And all mankind ' didn ' t mean him, it meant every one, — the little cash girl, the people that thronged the street, especially Jenny, since she didn ' t even know what they were. And how would she ever know unless someone told her, taught her — himself, for instance ? He must make her happy — that was it ! That was why he hadn ' t felt the Christmas spirit: it was that he had kept the " good tidings " and " great joy " bottled up within him. It was himself he had tried to make happy, and not " all mankind. " With a sudden impulse he leaned forward and ordered his car back to the store. The way was blocked in so many places that it was almost impossible to get there, and he found himself growing impatient until he could reach it again. He pushed his way finally through the throng and made his way this time to the tired girl. " Where ' s that little cash girl who was here a half-hour ago ? " he demanded breathlessly. " Which one? " 128 THE AURORA " The little one, " he exclaimed, rather confused. " I don ' t know her name — she had such a bright, ' Christmas ' face — " " Oh, Jenny! " exclaimed the girl, and her voice grew grave. " She fell on the steps a few minutes ago and cut her head. They have taken her home. " " Can you tell me where she lives? " He could hardly wait until he found her. " At some poor house — I dont know just where — they can tell you at the office. " " Thank you. " He reached the office, his face troubled and anxious. " Jenny ? " asked the man. " Yes, wait a moment and I ' ll find her address for you. " " The Billing Poorhouse, 387 Billing Street— in the slums I think, " he announced finally. " She ' s just been sent home hurt, I think. " " Thank you, " said the man, his face clearing up with re- lief as he turned to go. " Did you want to see her? " ventured the other man. " Yes, " answered John Thornton, his voice strangely soft. " I want to take her ' good tidings ' and ' great joy. ' " III The faded, washed-out little woman who answered the knock at the " poorhouse " door stared in amazement at the sight of the " elegant gentleman " who stood there. " Yis, this here ' s the poerhouse, " she managed to stam- mer in answer to his question. " Git away, Sammy, " in an undertone to the dirty brat hanging to her skirts. " Well, I want to see Jenny, a little cash girl, er — I want to know if she ' s here — they said she was hurt, " he said in confusion. " Yis, they tuk her up stairs and laid her down, but I ain ' t had time to see about her yit; I guess she ain ' t much hurt. " " May I see her? " he asked. " and all mankind " 129 She led him rather reluctantly down the dirty, dim hall and up the shaky stairs. From behind creaky doors won- dering faces peeped out, and cracked voices from the " old- women ' s " ward made remarks on his appearance. " That air hat ain ' t the very latest thing, " criticised Granny Mahler in a stage whisper. " Yesterday ' s paper says the new English shape is all the go. " " But look at that fur coat ! ain ' t it swell ? " from another tousled head. John Thornton ' s cheeks burned with embarrassment, and he hurried after the woman as she opened the door at the end of the hall. The room into which he stepped was lighted by a single small skylight, and through the dimness he could barely distinguish a little bed. " Jenny, how air ye? " asked the woman, going over and shaking roughly the little form that lay on the bed. " Good heavens! " exclaimed the high and mighty Mr. Thornton, clutching desperately at the woman ' s arm. " Don ' t shake the child like that! don ' t you see she ' s hurt? Why, she ' s fainted. Bring me some water quick! See, her head is all bloody. Good Lord ! What did you mean by leaving her like this ? Confound it ! Haven ' t you " his anger almost choked him, and he leaned down and picked her little form up in his arms. The woman, frightened, hurried back with a tin-cup of water, and he bathed the child ' s face with his handkerchief. She stirred, and opened her eyes with a pitiful little groan. For a moment she looked up at the face of the man bending over her, then smiled feebly. " You ' re come fer yaire quarter, ain ' t yew? " she asked. " I ain ' t spent it yit; it ' s " she tried to lift herself, failed, and fainted again. The man looked about in consternation for somewhere to lay her. He couldn ' t lay her in that dirty bed again. 130 THE ATJKORA Never before had he felt so helpless. With a sudden reso- lution he rose with her in his arms and started toward the door. " Open the door, " he demanded of the woman. " I can ' t leave this child here; I ' m going to take her to the hospital. You can tell her parents " " Huh! she ain ' t got no parents, " laughed the woman scornfully. " Well, then, you needn ' t expect ever to see her back here again, " he snapped angrily, and carried her swiftly down the steps into the street. He flushed at the chauffeur ' s glance of amazement, but vouchsafed no explanation. " Drive to the Southern Hospital, " he commanded. Never before had he been so near a child — never had held one in his arms ; and his arms grew tired and ached with the burden of this twelve-year-old child, slight and wasted though her little frame was. He smiled to think of the amazement of some of his friends, could they see him now, but his heart was strangely light with a joy he had never known before. The child stirred again. " Good tidin ' s, " she murmured. The song finished itself in his brain- — " to you and all mankind. " " Please God, I ' ll make it to all mankind, " he vowed to himself. He entered the hospital unnoticed, and, being familiar with it, he made his way to the children ' s ward. " Is your child hurt? " suddenly asked a sweet voice at his side. Turning, he faced her. It was the sweetest voice he had ever heard, and hers was the sweetest face he had ever be- held: soft, grey eyes and a mass of soft, brown hair topped with the usual nurse ' s cap. The heart of John Thornton fell at her feet with a thud. " Is she hurt ? " she asked again. " and all mankind " 131 " Yes, " he answered, coming to his senses suddenly, " and I want her in a private ward. " Together they walked silently down the hall and laid her in the clean, white bed. The ward physician hurried up. " I don ' t think she ' s seriously hurt, " he said. " But Miss Mary will see in a moment. Do you wish a special nurse ? " " Can she take her? " asked John Thornton, nodding toward the nurse who was examining the child. " Poor little thing ! " whispered the nurse with tears in her eyes. Then, realizing the approving gaze of John Thornton, she resumed the business-like tone: " Your daughter isn ' t seriously hurt, " she announced. " A pretty bad cut, that ' s all. If you care to, you may wait in the parlor for an hour until I can make her comfortable and then you may speak to her. " " She isn ' t my daughter, " he stammered hastily. " She ' s only a little cash girl I ' m fond — got — am interested in. I ' m not even married ; I am just John Thornton, confirmed bachelor " realizing what a fool he was making of him- self he turned and fled to the parlor. As he paced back and forth during the hour he waited, the feeling of joy and security he had been experiencing caused him to think hard. He understood now how his own selfishness had cut off from him the Christmas joy that was " to all mankind. " But he would not waste his time in regrets, he determined. He had yet the whole of Christmas- Eve in which to prepare to take great joy. He was, some- how, depending on the nurse to help him bring joy to Jennie, and expecting Jennie to tell him how he might take joy " to all mankind. " IV " The little girl is comfortable now, " the voice of the nurse broke in upon his reverie, " and if you wish to talk to her, you may do so. " " If she ' s very much hurt perhaps " 132 THE ATTEOEA " Oh, she isn ' t badly hurt — a little weak from loss of blood now, but she won ' t go to sleep until she sees you, " she laughed. It was an entirely different Jenny who greeted him from the cot. Under the skilful hands of the nurse her face had emerged into cleanliness, and she hailed the advent of the man with her old cheerful expression. " Ain ' t this here the grandest place you ever seen? " she asked in an excited whisper, as he took his seat beside the bed. " I feel so clean and good, an ' don ' t you jes love Miss Mary? " He turned and smiled at the nurse as she was leaving the room. " Don ' t go, " he begged. She returned slowly and took a seat on the other side of the cot. " Jenny, " said the man, lifting the child ' s small hand in his, " what is your whole name, child? " " Genevieve Gwendolyn, " answered Jenny promptly. " Genevieve Gwendolyn? " he asked in astonishment, while Miss Mary coughed politely to hide her smile. " Where on earth did you get that name? " " Named myself, " she grinned. " I never had no maw to name me, an ' I thought that was a awful pretty name; I ain ' t got no last name. " " Well, we ' ll see if we can ' t find you one, " he answered promptly, smiling down at her. Perhaps we can get you one for a Christmas present. " " Aw, I don ' t ever git no Christmas presents, " she in- formed him. " What are they fur, anyway, when you do git ' em? " " Why, I think Santa Claus brings them, doesn ' t he, Miss Mary, " he appealed. " Yes, indeed, " she smiled. " You know who he is, don ' t you, Jenny? " " and all mankind " 133 " Well, I — I ain ' t never had nobody to tell me jest ez-actly, " she apologized in an embarrassed voice. John Thornton shot an imploring look at the nurse, and she answered understandingly. " He ' s a jolly little man who comes to see little folks on Christmas-Eve and brings them all sorts of presents because he loves them, " she explained simply. " And now what do you want him to bring you to-night ? " put in the man eagerly. " What kind of things does he bring? " inquired the child rather dazed. " Just what you want. What would you rather have than anything on earth? " " A tooth-brush, a big doll, some blue slippers, an ' — " , she cast a rather dubious look at him for a second, then — " An ' a diamond ring, " she finished. John Thornton and Miss Mary looked at each other in amazement a moment, then leaned back and laughed until they were weak. Miss Mary recovered first, and she patted the bewildered child ' s hand softly as she explained to her. " We ' re laughing because you asked for a diamond, dear, " she said. " You see diamonds are only for people that are engaged — that mean to get married. " " Oh, yes, I know! " exclaimed the child in relief. " Well, at the store Nell has got one, only she can ' t get married now ' cause her man ' s been sick an ' can ' t git no job. Does Santa Claus ever bring jobs? " she inquired. John Thornton took out his memorandum book and wrote down " slippers, doll, and job for Nell ' s man. " " What else do you want? " he asked. " Well, I do need a new apron, " she admitted. But I can do without that, an ' that ' s all I want for myself. " " Well, then, tell me something you ' d like to give; some people give other folks Christmas presents, and I ' ll buy whatever you want. " 134 THE AUEOEA " It costs a heap, what I want to give, " she objected shyly. " That ' s all right, " he encouraged, " I " ,an pay for any- thing you ' ll suggest. " " I wish the folks at the house could have a turkey to- morrow for dinner, " she began, looking wistfully at him, " an ' a table-cloth to eat on. " Miss Mary smiled again at John Thornton as he put down the requests. " They shall have the best dinner they ever had, " he prom- ised gayly. " What else ? " " Granny Mahler needs a new shawl, an ' ole Miss Coles has wanted some specs fer four years, " she announced. " Then Jimmy wants a candy cane an ' — is it too much? " she demanded. He shook his head. There were so many other things she wanted that, by the time she had finished, he had promised such a stupendous amount that he trembled to think of it. " Now, I ' m going out to tell Santa about all this, " he announced as he rose to go. But first you must promise to be good and go right to sleep. " " I will, " she cried, her eyes shining with excitement. " And say! " she caught his hand and laid it against her cheek ; " you ' re the dandiest thing in the world — ' cept her, " pointing to the nurse. Laughing, but with a queer, suspicious moisture in his eyes, he left the room, and, at his whispered request, Miss Mary followed him. Out in the hall he turned and addressed her abruptly : " You know I can ' t do all this, " he said. " I don ' t know how or where to buy them, and I haven ' t time to do it by myself. Now I want you to come and help me. Please don ' t object, " as she started to interrupt him. " I know it isn ' t usual for the nurses to leave, but I can see that someone takes your place. You ' ll be on your patient ' s business, you see, and my car is out there and — oh, please ! " " and all mankind " 135 For fully fifteen seconds she regarded him calmly, weigh- ing him in an embarrassingly disinterested manner, then — " Are you sure you need me, really need me ? " " I am sure I really need you. " " Then I ' ll go, " and she turned and left him. Never so long as he lived did John Thornton forget that night. Together he and the sweet-faced nurse rode down through the crowded streets and visited each store. They both entered into it like children; he so eager to buy that she was sometimes obliged to reprove him. Not content with Jenny ' s request, he bought not only the slippers and doll, but clothing of all kinds, toys, and toilet articles — in- cluding the tooth-brush. Last of all he drove to the florist ' s, where he came forth literally loaded with violets for Miss Mary. All her protestations were in vain. " Won ' t you let Jenny and me express our gratitude for your help in this little way? " he reasoned, and she let him have his way. At the hospital they arranged together Jenny ' s Christmas with great glee and stealth, and he left with a whispered " good-night " and a grateful hand pressure. Christmas morning when he came in he was hailed raptur- ously by Jenny. She was sitting in state in her room, wrapped in a marvelous blue bath-robe, her feet incased in the blue slippers, the doll clasped close. All morning he had worked, delivering the presents she had wished, and after the excited child had displayed her things he told her and the nurse of the pleasure the gifts had given. His own heart was warm with the gratitude they had called forth. " An ' that ' s what you have Christmas fer? " asked the child at last. 136 THE AUROKA " No, Christmas is to celebrate the birth of Jesus, dear, " said Miss Mary. " Why? " asked the child. Then in solemn, simple words the sweet-faced nurse told her the story of the Babe of Bethlehem who came into the world on Christmas-Eve and gave Himself for us. The child listened eagerly till the end. " An ' that ' s ' the good tidings ? ' " whispered the child. " Oh, I wisht we could all thank somebody for Christmas ! " Miss Mary looked imploringly at John Thornton. So there in the room with the Christmas sun shining upon them, he and the sweet-faced nurse and the little cash girl bowed their heads. And he prayed the most fervent prayer he had ever prayed, thanking God for the gift of His Son, and that his own eyes had been opened to the joy of giving " to all mankind. " And as they lifted their heads the sweetness of " The Presence " filled the room, " And glory shone around. " Emma Jones. A LOVE STOEY 137 a JLotoe torp (Told by Komance Poets.)

LlDIE ToRREY MlNTER, ' 14. 140 THE AURORA Cbe heritage " Men say the sullen instrument That from the master ' s bow With pangs of joy or woe Feels music ' s soul through every fiber sent Whispers the ravished strings More than he knew or meant. Old summers in its memory glow; The secrets of the wind it sings; It hears the April-loosened springs, And mixes with its mood All it dreamed when it stood In the murmurous pine wood Long ago. " It was in the month of May, in the time of long ago, that Arthur Beverly first led his young wife into the forest — the " forest of Arden, " they called it. They came there as pio- neers. No one had lived there before except the wild creatures of the woods and the very fact held for them a charm. For they were filled with the very joy of life and to their young eyes all things were beautiful. The very streams seemed to whisper their secrets and the winds bent low to murmur to them as they passed. They built but a rude hut in the wood and had little need of that, for their time was spent out of doors. At a distance he began to clear away some of the tall trees and to plant for the winter that was coming. She, too, was busy during the day at the thousand little things that a woman finds to do. It was the evening time that they loved. Whistling he came from the fields, and she came through the woods to meet him. The sunshine fell through the trees upon her slight form as she stood waiting — so slight that it seemed the very wind would blow her away. THE HERITAGE 141 She was English and fair, with eyes like the blue of the sky above her, and sunny hair waving about her face with the touch of the wind. Her delicately white skin and small, shapely hands told of a life of leisure beyond the sea. Yet, in the love-light of her eyes you found the reason why her lips were ever laughing and her cheeks were all aglow. Truly for her the forest seemed to be a veritable " forest of Arden. " The man who came to meet her down the wood-path was tall and broad of shoulder. His long, easy stride and the hard muscles of his hands gave proof of the sturdy folk from whom he came. But in his dark eyes lay the passion that had come down to him from some far-away French ancestor. And as he held her close he bent to whisper the old ques- tion he had asked so many times : " How much do you love me? " And each time she had a new answer. " I love you as much, " she would say, " as the sky is blue " ; and then again, " As muc h as there are trees in the forest. " And then, shyly looking up into his eyes, she questioned, " How much ? " And bending low he whispered simply, " With all my heart, Lsetitia. " The trees repeated it softly to each other above their heads, but they did not hear. In the twilight hour they sat together in the woods; he with his violin — the violin that he loved. And she sat spell- bound while he played, for into his playing there crept the murmurs of the forest, the tinkling of the streams, the whispering of the leaves, and then the soft, far-away sounds of the twilight hour and the great love of a man ' s heart. It was a beautiful summer of golden days, when the wild- flowers nodded and beckoned wherever you turned. Hand- in-hand they wandered hither and yon, always beckoned on- 142 THE AUBOBA ward by the charm of a distant flower. Always he carried his violin. " What would a daisy be like in music? " she would stop to ask. With his eyes on the far-away hills he would play softly, while she sank on the grass at his feet to listen. The summer passed — the first summer of their life together — and fall came with all its glorious coloring of red and gold. " Come out into the moonlight, Lsetitia, " he called, " and let me play you the witchery of the fall. " And she stood in the chill air and listened. " It is beau- tiful, " she said, " oh, so beautiful — but sad! Why do you make it sad? " " The most beautiful things in the world are made beauti- ful by sorrow, " he said, in the wisdom of youth. But she caught his hand. " No, " she said passionately, " don ' t say it, The world can be jus t as beautiful without sorrow. " There was questioning, pleading in her voice as she spoke, and she looked up to him for an answer. " Yes, dear, " he said, stooping to kiss away the wistful- ness, " life could not be more beautiful than with you. " The soft pink color came back into her cheeks and she smiled again. With the coming of spring there came a son to share their happiness. " Isn ' t he the most beautiful thing in the world? " she asked. It was late one shi mm er afternoon that he found her standing upon a high rock. It was just at sunset, and the glory of the sky was all about her. " Play, " she commanded, " play the sunset. " As he played, his eyes rested upon the woman and the child, and into his playing there crept a note of sadness. His eyes had noted how frail her form looked with the golden glow all about her. THE HEEITAGE 143 After that she seemed to grow frailer each day. With the passing of the leaves she left him. In his dumb grief he gathered the child into his arms and collected a few things to take with him. At the door he paused. His violin hung on the wall over in one corner. He hesitated for an instant. Should he take it with him ? It held in it the memories of summer evenings together, of twilights, and murmurous woods. With the thought, he turned away suddenly. Those things were past. He went out and shut the door behind him. " You can ' t play, " the little man said bluntly, waving his hands with an exasperated gesture. " Why do you try? Give it up and get a job. There are too many people in this world that think they can play. The world would be better off if they ' d all try making an honest living instead. There is only one in a million that has any soul to his playing. That ' s what you lack. There ' s no soul to it. There ' s noth- ing you feel that you want to tell the world about. When you have anything the world really wants to hear about, it will listen to you. " There was a silence. The wiry little man had had his say and poured out his torrent of words and was breathless. It took some time for the young man in front of him to realize the full import of what he had said. " You mean, " he said finally, " that I can ' t play, that there is no use trying? " " That ' s what I said. " All the light had faded out of the younger man ' s face, and he stood with his shoulders drooped as though having received a blow. His dejected attitude moved the other. " My boy, " he said, laying his hand on his shoulder, " I ' m sorry to have to tell you this, but it is best for you to know 144 THE AURORA it. You have technique, but you lack soul. For your father ' s sake, as well as yours, I wish it were otherwise. " " Yes, " the boy said, " My father told ine long ago in his last months that I was to study and work and learn to play, and then I was to come to you and you would tell me whether or not it was worth while. " " Oh! " the man said. He was small and dark, but with eyes that were eloquent of his feelings. " Your father was a wonderful man. He could make a violin speak in the old days when I first knew him. There is nothing else he loved better in the world. " " Yes, " the boy contradicted, " there was one thing he loved even better — my mother. " The man nodded. " I never heard him play after her death, " he said. " Do you know what became of his violin? " The other shook his head. " It was a wonderful violin — wonderful ! " the small man gave vent to his feelings, gazing at the youth before him without even seeing him. What he saw instead was a man very like him with passionate, dark eyes where the boy ' s were blue. He was hearing again the notes of the violin as he played, and again he sat entranced. " I see her, " he was saying, " I see her. She is beautiful, oh, so beautiful — but how frail ! like a slender flower. And her eyes are blue — dear blue bits of the sky. " " I have seen her, " he was saying again reveren tly to those dark, passionate eyes, " I have seen her — the woman you love ' — in your violin. " " I must go, " the boy said at last. " I thank you for doing me the favor of hearing me play. " The man put out his hand. " Be brave, my son, " he said, " it was for the best that I should tell you. " THE HERITAGE 145 " I thank you, " the younger man said again, and passed out the door and down the long stairs into the street. About him once more was the rush and din of the great city. People in the crowd jarred against him in their hurry. " What ' s the use of it all? " he asked himself now. For him all the purpose seemed suddenly to have dropped out of life. Even as a child he had had his dreams of the day when he should stand before a great audience and make them listen by the magic of his music. And now — a great desire came to him to be alone, to fight it out by himself. Then, in an effort to put it from him, he tried to make plans. The best way to win his battle was to do something, and at once — but what? The thought of his music came again. His whole life had been a learning to play and he had failed to learn. He must make his plans over again. The small amount left by his father had nearly all gone for his education. The old lawyer had warned him that there was little left. With the thought came a resolve. He would go to the old lawyer at once to find out exactly what was left. Perhaps he could show him his way out. As he climbed the long, dusty stairs the sound of a piano in the music store came to him faintly, yet the sound jarred on him. The music was merely mechanical. It was an old song, and a woman ' s high voice was singing: " Oh, Marguerite, of long ago! Oh, Marguerite, I loved you so! " The voice was harsh, yet even that could not take the pathos from the old song. The words seemed almost a stab. They brought the thought of Margaret again. He had thought of her first of all when the musician had told him. Resolutely he knocked at the nearest door. 146 THE AUEOEA " Come in, " said a hearty voice, and he found himself in Judge Clairborne ' s office. A prosperous-looking old gentle- man, of about sixty, rose to greet him, a smile on his kindly face. " Well, I ' m glad to see you, Beverly, " he said. I haven ' t seen you for some time. " Then, " Is anything the matter ? " he asked, as his keen eyes noted the expression on the younger man ' s face. " I came to see just how I stood, " the latter explained. " I ' ve had to give up the idea of doing anything with my music. " " What! " Judge Clairborne said, turning suddenly in his chair. " You mean to say you didn ' t get the position you were going to get just as soon as you had a recommen- dation from that musician friend of yours ? He didn ' t give you one? " " He told me I couldn ' t play — to give it up. He ought to know. So I ' ve come to you to get advice as to what to do next. " The Judge was just about to go further into the case, but he read in the younger man ' s face the desire not to discuss the subject. It was his ready understanding of human nature that had made him the great lawyer he was. " I ' m sorry to tell you, " he said, " that there are only a few hundred dollars left, so much was necessary for your education. You will hardly be able to live on that. " There is a small place somewhere out in Ohio, I don ' t remember exactly where. I investigated it a few years ago. There is only a rude hut on the place. It has just occurred to me that, perhaps, the best plan for you would be to go out there and see what you can do. According to your father ' s will it can not be sold. There is quite a large tract of uncleared forest. If you lived there, you might be able to make something from it. At any rate, that seems the best THE HERITAGE 147 plan at present. As I said before, I am not very well up on the facts concerning it. I will look them up and write you in a day or so. There were a great many restrictions in your father ' s will about any changes being made. I believe your father and mother lived there when they were first married. " Beverly nodded. " You have given your time to your music so much that you are not prepared for anything else in the way of making a living. This seems the best opening. What do you think of it? " " I think it is the only thing left me to do, " the younger man said quietly. " It will mean hard work, " the other warned. " You will find it lonely, but it is the best opening I see at present. " There was a knock at the door and a moment later a scholarly looking old gentleman entered. " In just a minute, Judge Marsh, " Judge Clairborne explained. Then he turned to Richard Beverly. " Think about it and let me know what you decide. " But he had already decided. " I ' m going, " he said quietly. On his way down the stairs he heard the voice again and again the words floated up to him: " Oh, Marguerite, of long ago! Oh, Marguerite, I loved you so! " He shut his eyes tight and made his way resolutely through the crowd. He tried to put it from his mind, but over and over the refrain kept repeating itself: " Oh, Marguerite, of long ago! Oh, Marguerite, I loved you so! " 148 THE ATTKOBA Even when he sat by the fire in his own room in the boarding-house, where he had lived since he could first remember, the words kept ringing in his ears. Thoughts of Margaret came surging upon him. It seemed to him now that he had always loved her. She had lived in the house next-door, and they had played together as children in the old garden just back of the house. In the firelight he saw her again as she had looked when he went over to see her the afternoon before they had moved away to the other side of the town. It had seemed to him as though he were really telling her good-bye. Somehow the other side of town had seemed a long way off. She had been dressed all in white, with her dark hair in one long curl down her back. They had gone together down to the swing under the big oak. Neither one of them, for the first time in their lives, had very much to say. It was a sign that they were growing up. " It isn ' t so far, after all, " she had said. " Why, it ' s only just the other side of town. " " I know, " he had said, " but, " with boyish embarrass- ment, he had hesitated, the subject being very near his heart, " you ' ll forget me. " She answered his question only indirectly, — after jthe way of a woman. " It ' s you who ' ll be forgetting me, " she had said. " You ' ll be a great violinist one of these days, and everybody will be talking of you and of your playing, and you ' ll forget you ever knew me long before you become famous. " His eyes were full of the dreamy light she had seen in them when he played. " If only I can learn to play, " he had said, " to make people listen, to tell them all the beautiful things in music, then I will come back to you and we will share it all together, and I will have enough, and will give you everything you THE HERITAGE 149 can want. " His blue eyes were filled now with a passion she had never seen in them before, and her own eyes dropped. " You won ' t forget? " he asked, bending toward her. " I won ' t forget, " she repeated after him. And then he was only a boy again after all, — " Cross your heart? " he asked. " Cross my heart, " she repeated. He had not seen her as often since, but always they had remembered that promise; always he had felt that she had not forgotten. And now — it was all over. She had everything, and he had nothing to offer. True his mother had gone with his father out into the wilderness, but that was in the old days. Times were changed now. For the first time he gave way and bowed his head upon his hands. " Oh, Marguerite! " He murmured the name he had called her long ago. " Oh, Marguerite, I loved you so! " A week later Richard Beverly stood again at the door of the old musician ' s small studio. " I have come to tell you good-bye, " he announced quietly. The little musician greeted him most effusively. Deep down in his heart he had a great love for the son of his old friend, although he had thought it best to tell him just what he thought of his playing. Now, as he looked into the face before him, he realized vaguely that the boy had grown up. He was not a boy but a man. The old boyishness had, somehow, dropped from him and a look of determination had taken its place. " I am going out to Ohio, " Richard Beverly went on, " to a little place where my father and mother lived long ago. " " You might give me the address, " the musician suggested. " Perhaps if I found anything I thought in your line I might be able to give you some help in getting a place. " 150 THE AUBOBA The man hastily scribbled an address on a card. The musician took it. As he did so, Eichard Beverly rose to go. " I ' ll say good- bye, " he said. " I want to thank you for telling me exactly what you think about my playing and for all your help, " and he was gone. The musician for the first time looked down at the address and a surprised look came over his face. " Well of all things! " he ejaculated. And then an idea suddenly struck him: " I ' ll do it, " he said, " it won ' t hurt and it may do some good. " The man was making his way rapidly down the street. As he turned a corner he almost ran into someone coming from the opposite direction. " Why, Dick Beverly! " exclaimed a laughing voice. " Haven ' t you learned yet to look where you are going? " " Well, of all things! " the man gasped. " You? " She was a trim figure as she stood before him that cold spring afternoon, her cheeks all pink, her brown eyes laugh- ing, and a dimple at one corner of her small mouth. " So you were going to pass me by, were you ? " she asked. " You were the last person in the world I expected to see, " he said. " And I ' m sure you were the last I expected to see when you haven ' t let us see you for weeks. Have you been so terribly busy with your music ? " she asked. She had noticed his tired look and her voice grew suddenly sympathetic. " I have given up my music, " he declared simply, looking straight clown into her eyes. He had turned and was walking on down the street with her. As he spoke, he saw the look of utter surprise, dismay, and then they were all blotted out by instant sympathy for him. With her ready tact she did not exclaim over it; she only looked up at him and asked, " Why? " THE HERITAGE 151 All the laughter had left her. The brown eyes were serious. " I had to, " he said. " Mr. La Rue said it was no use. He said I would never play. I didn ' t have the heart in it. " " How does he know? " the girl asked impulsively. " You do play. You play wonderfully. Do you remember the night I moved away from the old house ? " The words brought back memories, and the hot color flamed up in her cheeks at the thought that she should have mentioned it, but she went on quickly. " You played out under the old oak and — and it was wonderful. It made me see things — beautiful things; oh, I can ' t tell you " She realized suddenly that she was telling him more than she had ever meant to. Her eyes were straight ahead, and she did not see the look that leaped into his. He bent toward her. Words were on his lips — and he turned away. What right had he to say them? What had he to offer? " Mr. La Rue ought to know, " he said. " My father said he would. " " What are you going to do? " the girl asked, reaching out quickly for another subject. Her cheeks were still hot because she had mentioned that night. What right had he to know that she still remembered? " I am going away, " he said, and he did not look at her. " Going away? " she repeated. " Yes, " he told her. " There is a place out in Ohio where my father and mother lived and where I was born. All that ' s left me to do is to go out there and cultivate it and see if I can make a living out of it. " " I am going to-morrow, " he said. She was on the top step, and turned suddenly. The vine clambering over the porch made a halo about her with its delicate green. 152 THE AURORA " To-morrow? " she said; and " To-morrow? " she said again, and there was a queer tremble in her voice that he did not hear. " But you are coming back ? " she questioned. He shook his head. " I was coming back, " he said, and his eyes sought hers for an instant, " but that was in the long ago when I thought that some day I would be famous and could come back here — but now that can never be. " There was silence. If he had looked up he would have seen the great wistfulness in the girl ' s face. The whole heart of her was crying out to comfort him. " Good-bye, " he said quickly, and turned and went down the steps. " And you weren ' t even coming to tell me good-bye? " she said slowly. " I couldn ' t, " he said brokenly, and went on down the walk. He dared not even look back. In the small room above his studio the old musician was writing. " He told me to-day his address, and, to my surprise, I realized that it must be somewhere in your neighborhood. I thought of you at once, but I didn ' t mention the fact to him. Look him up, but don ' t mention me. If there is music in him it is bound to come out, and there ' s a mere possibility there may be some there. Goodness knows, there ought to be! His father had enough of it in him. For his father ' s sake I ' ll do all in my power for him. He helped me out once — you remember. You are musician enough yourself to know music when you hear it. Anyway, do all you can for him. Yours, as ever, Henby LaRxje. The old musician folded the letter and put it in an envelope. " He ' s queer, " he said, half-aloud, " but he ' ll do it. " THE HERITAGE 153 It was a late summer afternoon, and, as the one traveler on the road turned from the dust to the cool shade of the wood-path, he heaved a sigh of relief. " Just like Henry, " he muttered, " to make me go wander- ing ' round the country on a wild-goose chase like this. How does he expect me to know where to find this young scape goat ? He might be in any of these pla ces for miles around here. As if I didn ' t have anything to do but go gadding around the country to find this young protege of his. " He was a queer-looking figure, as he made his way through the woods, tall and gaunt as he was, with a face tanned by the sun and a dilapidated old farmer ' s hat drawn down over his eyes. The people around the country called him " The Hermit. " Now as he made his way along the narrow path, the keen eyes under the heavy eyebrows noted each object. At the sound of someone chopping wood, he stopped. Then he followed in the direction of the sound. A man strong and broad of shoulder was hewing down a tree. The " Hermit " stood still and studied him, his gaze lingering long on the face. Evidently his survey was satisfac- tory, for he nodded. " That ' s he, " he told himself. Leaning against a tree he addressed him. His language was that of the farmers about him. He had foiind it brought less notice to himself. " When did you come? " he asked, as though continuing a conversation. The young man started at the unexpected sound. " Hello ! " he said, raising his head and thus giving the other a good look at his face. It was a strong face, the " Hermit " noted, with a firm chin; the skin was clear, but browned by the sun — a face full of determination. The eyes were blue and looked 154 THE AURORA squarely at him, but there was a sadness in the lines about his mouth. The " Hermit " repeated his question. " Since early spring, " the man answered. " And you have done all this by yourself since spring? " The " Hermit ' s " gaze wandered over the place about him and took in every change. " When I was here last spring it looked like a wilderness. " The man nodded. The " Hermit " took a pipe from his pocket, lighted it and smoked leisurely. " What ' s your name ? " he asked at last. " Richard Beverly. " The old man nodded to him. " I thought so, " he said. " What did you say? " " I said I had heard so. " He drew several puffs from his pipe. The man went on with his work. " Get lonely? " the " Hermit " inquired carelessly. " At times, " the man answered him. " Better come over and be sociable then, " and the " Her- mit " was gone. The man laid down his ax to watch him disappearing through the woods. " He ' s a queer old fellow, " he said. The " Hermit " walked slowly, stopped, considered, then made a short cut down to a small stream. " I guess the only thing to do is to wait, " he said, and settled himself against a tree. Slowly the afternoon drew to a close. The sky was a glory of golden light. The very forest trees seemed to reflect it. Then he turned slowly and made his way noiselessly back. " If there ' s any music in him, " he muttered, " it will come out now. " The faint sound of a violin came to him. He went nearer, then stood still and listened. THE HEEITAGE 155 It was more than an hour before he turned and went back along the path-way, and as he went he brushed something suspiciously like tears from his eyes. He came again the next day, and the next — always alone and at the same hour. The man who played never knew he was there. Over a week later he brought someone else with him. It was the little musician. " You are sure it is he ? " the musician questioned eagerly. The " Hermit " nodded. Together they stood silent in the dusk of the trees and waited. Then the man began to play. The musician leaned forward, listening intently. Then he caught the " Hermit " by the arm. " It is his father ' s violin, " he whispered excitedly. " He has found it. " Neither spoke after that. The musician stood entranced, listening. As Henry La Rue listened he saw again his friend, the father of the boy, and the slight woman beside him — beauti- ful as of old. The music held in it life and joy and love, and into it there crept the murmurs of the forest, the tink- lings of the streams, the whisperings of the leaves, and then the soft, far-away sounds of the twilight hour and the great love of a man ' s heart — was it the father ' s or the son ' s? In the playing he saw all over again the joy of living that those two had found who had once come to live in the forest. And then there crept a note of sadness into the music. He saw the slight form of the woman grow frail. The sad- ness deepened. The music seemed fidl of a sorrow too deep for words. The woman had left him with the falling of the leaves. But was that all? Was it only a past sorrow he was playing? On and on the man played. It was the sorrow of a man ' s heart. The musician, standing tense, wondered. Was it the violin or was it the lonely months in the forest that had 156 THE AURORA taught the man this great sorrow, or was it something beyond all this that had come into the life of the one who played? The music grew low, trembled, and died away. Neither man moved. Then, suddenly, the musician sprang forward and stood in front of the player. " Wonderful, man, won- derful! " he said, seizing him by the arm. Richard Beverly stood perfectly still, as though struck dumb by the sudden apparition before him. " You must come with me for the winter. The place you wanted is yours. Will you come ? " he asked eagerly. A vision of all it meant to him to go back came to Richard Beverly for an instant. " Will I come? " he repeated. " Do you need to ask ? " It was in the month of May that Richard Beverly led his young wife into the forest. She was tall, with a rich mass of brown hair above the laughing brown eyes, and had a small dimple at the corner of her mouth. How unlike she was to the woman who had first come in the long ago, yet, as Richard Beverly looked down into her eyes, it seemed to him that there was nothing more beautiful in the whole world.

The sunshine falls on college walls, Our Agnes Scott of song and story: But no one sees the flowers and trees, The campus in its morning glory. Rest, students, rest; moments are surely creeping. Rest, students, weary students; sleeping, sleeping, sleeping! hark, O hear! how loud and clear, And louder, clearer, ever sounding! With death-like knell, the rising-bell The silent halls are now resounding! Rouse, students, rouse! See the new day now breaking. Rouse, students, sleepy students! waking, waking, waking. The moments fly, the hours go by, And breakfast-bells are loudly ringing; Then chapel comes, the college hums, While each new hour its task is bringing. Rush, students, rush! This is no time for shirking. Rush, students, busy students! working, working, working. » AUX HOMMES At a college we know, — A. S. C, Where maidens can get their A. B., Five bachelors are. Each one is a " star " ; On this, everyone will agree. The first one is J. D. M. A., The freshman ' s delight, so they say. Though of themes every week They most feelingly speak, Yet he says he can ' t keep them away. 159 Of course, C. P. O. must come next, Whose life by fair women is vexed. Though a tin sword he need He ' ll not have it, indeed! But he really is greatly perplexed. A celebrity, C. W. D.— The wonder of all A. S. C. Be it ballads or waltzes, Fugues, preludes, or valses, He ' s skillful in equal degree. Regard B. M. B. number four. Of patience possessing such store That, though girls do annoy, He them doth enjoy; And will never admit they ' re a bore. Here comes our old friend L. H. J., From a state that is far, far away; But since o ne girl is pretty And charming and witty, He ' s delighted in Georgia to stay. C. Jackson, ' 14. The A. S. C. " Diet Bunch " Among the fair maidens of Agnes Scott who, because of their ill health and poor digestion, are forced to eat at the Diet Table, we can not fail to notice: — First, poor little Margaret Roberts who has been in ill health for quite a long while and has been at the Diet Table almost constantly. She now weighs only about one hundred and fifty pounds and is very frail and weak-eyed. On her right sits another pale maiden — Euth Blue by name — who has been suffering years with " Galloping Thinness, " but Euth is building up nicely on eggs and toast. Dr. Sweet thinks that she will soon be able to eat more. 160 THE ATJEOBA Ethel McConnell is another very delicate girl, and is a victim of the incurable disease of " Final-come-and-get-us. " Poor Ethel ! It seems that she will never be well again unless there is a " Mark " -ed change soon. At the head of the Diet Table sits Kate Richardson, of low stature and very thinly built, but it seems that Kate enjoys the eggs and toast, for she is always served three or four times. But we must not overlook so conspicuous a figure as Lottie May Blair. !No one can understand why Dr. Sweet ever sent Lottie May to the Diet Table, for there is not a healthier, stronger-looking girl at Agnes Scott. Her ninety pounds are really something awful. Jean Ashcraft and Martha Rogers must certainly be weary of their " Diet " ere this, for they have been at that table long enough. Jean suffers with " Social Neuralgia, " which, they say, is incurable. But as for Martha, she is afflicted with nothing except an enormous appetite. Louise Du Pre ' s health gave way her first week in college, and even now she has no color in her cheeks at all. The milk she drinks must be marvelous. Marvelous??? Well, anyhow, she says it is good for the complexion, and to gain such a blessing as that she would do anything. Last, but not least, we must mention Frances Dukes, for she is not least by any means. Indeed, she is the ring-leader in " all the misconduct at the Diet Table, which would not be toler- ated in the youngest member of the Academy. " She is never satisfied with anything at the Diet Table, and often wonders when there ' ll be a change of menu. Since these delicate maidens are not allowed to eat between meals the dainties and delicacies which so appeal to the college girl ' s heart, they are often heard to wail: — " 01 all sad words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these: ' We ' re hungry again!

I became very much interested in his work, and used to watch him often as he carefully made his plan, sparing neither time nor care in working among the young plants and setting each aright. And now at last, even as I am writing, I view the i esult of his four years ' labor — his garden in full bloom. One of the dearest and quaintest flowers in this garden is the old-fashioned Pink — Louise Maness — who, though one of the smallest, is one of the most important little flowers in the whole garden. Here she has been quietly growing for the past four years, being one of the first flowers planted, and she has always proved herself a welcome neighbor to all the other flowers. Near her grows a tiny blue Forget-me-not — Grace Anderson — who, in h r quiet and simple way, has also for four years done her part in completing the plan of the garden. Xot far away grows a Pansy, — Allie Candler, — giving a happy touch of brightness to all the neighboring plants. Although she has been growing in the same spot during the whole time the gardener has been working with his flowers, making changes here and there, never once has she failed to show her sunny face and brighten rainy days, and to shed many rays of brightness upon the flowers all about her. Over in one corner, growing side by side, are two rather tall flowers, the one a dark red Dahlia — Kate Clark; and the other a Black-eyed Susan — Helen Smith. Dahlias love Black-eyed Susans, and so for four years these two flowers have grown together, sufficient unto themselves. In another corner grows a Tiger-Lily, — Florence Smith, — a tall and slender plant that has always done its best with its varied shades to fulfil its duty toward that part of the garden. On the side of the garden opposite where the Tiger-Lily grows, another corner is filled by Marigold and Petunia, — Janie MacGaughey and Mary Enzor, — two of the hardiest plants in the garden and two that have always grown steadily, maintaining their positions as two of the strongest and most important plants. 1S9 SIL 1 : UETT 1 4 In the center of the garden a bright and glowing Nasturtium — Lily Joiner — attracts the observer ' s attention. The gardener says that no flower has grown more than this one. The other flowers all like the bright Nasturtium, even when she raises her head and commands order among them, and all agree that none has done more to brighten the days of others and to add fun and frolic to playtime hours than the Nasturtium. Not far from the Nasturtium grows a taller flower, a Narcissus — Laura ]Mel Towers — who, although she has been growing in the garden only three years, has made herself essential to the flowers ' happiness. She was trans- planted from the Alabama garden, and, in her growth at Agnes Scott, has endeared herself to every heart by her kind words and gentle maimer. In truth, the garden would not be complete without her. Across from the Narcissus grews a Daffodil, — Eleanor Pinkston, — an independent, sturdy, fresh, little flower that has always, in many phases of garden life, shown herself necessary to the business affairs and general well- being of the other flowers. The Daffodil often helps the Nasturtium in both work and play, and these two flowers, though not the largest, keep order in the garelen. At some little distance from the Daffodil grows a white Eose, tinted with pink, — Olivia Bogacki. The Rose did not grow well for awhile, and the gardener was once afraid it would not bloom with the other flowers, but last summer she made up for lost time, and now ranks among the strongest. The Eose loves for the rain to come and make little puddles on the ground, for then she can bow her pretty head and watch its reflection in the rain-drop mirror. Another flower that has not grown as long in the garden as the others is the Chrysanthemum — Emma Pope Moss. Tall and strong, this flower has tried to fulfil its duties, and is truly one of the very happiest in the garden. Not very far away from this tall flower grows a bright, active, little Daisy — Lavalette Sloan — that is continually talking and bobbing its head. This little Daisy has done much in creating life and spirit for the garden, and, as we look at her now, every petal seems to say that the Daisy is ready to be transplanted to some other garden to grow beside some Sweet William. On the other side of the Daisy grows another lively flower, a Johnny-jump- up — Frances. Dukes. She has often helped the Daisy liven up the garden life, adding zeal and active sport on many occasions. 190 THE SILHOUETTE Beside this sprightly little flower grows a straight and hardy Aster — Margaret Roberts — who, in her quiet and steady way, has helped the tall flowers uphold the dignity of the garden. Only one flower that ever grew in this garden has disappeared. The timid Violet, — Mary Lawson Link, — who is still dear to the hearts of all the flowers, could not stand the garden soil, and so returned to her early home whence she had come to the gardener ' s keeping. And now she grows with other flowers in a garden of South Carolina, still remembered by her Georgia neighbors. And uow I see the gardener himself approaching to take a last look at his flowers, and, as he draws near, he says in saddened tones : " The time has come to gather them and to send them forth to bless others.

BELL COMPANY, INCORPORATED PRINTERS. DESIGNERS, ENGRAVERS LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA What do you think about Perhaps you haven ' t given it a thought beyond its perfect delicious- ness. That is the attitude of nine- tenths of us. But there are some people who have been misinformed (from various " ' sources of ignorance or maliciousness) and who, therefore, question vaguely the perfect wholesomeness of the beverage. Usually it is the threadbare falsehood of " Cocaine. " This is an untruth made up out of whole cloth and so we stamp it indelibly. Read What These Scientists Have Said— Recently The matter of Coca-Cola was recently discussed at the convention of the Association of State and National Food Dep ' t held at Duluth. Note what men said who had investigated in the interest of the public health. Dr. S. J. Crumbine, Secretary of the State Board of Health of Kansa9, As to stated that he knew nothing personally about there being cocaine in Coca- Cocaine Cola, having tested for cocaine and not finding it; but had so often heard that it contained cocaine and bad been told so often that its users became addicted it that be thought it worthy of discussion. Mr. J. W. Bailey, Dairy and Food Commissioner of Oregon, stated that following from several ladies he had it tested by his chemist but no cocaine was found. State Chemist of Oklaho . never found cocaine in Coca-Cola but 1 quantities) in 69 out of 72 substitutes (or imitations) of Coca-Cola Caffe ichisir ca-CoIa Prof. Edwin De Bat had found tbat drug (lr on tbe market. Note that- Dr. B. B. Ross, State Chemist of Alabama, had had Coca-Cola examined by his Dep ' t and no cocaine was found. They did find a small amount of caffeine about equal to what would be found in a cup of coffee. The following testimony was brought out at the trial in Chattanooga — U. S. Gov ' t vs. The Coca-Cola Co. — at which trial the Government lost. We give but these extracts from a famous pharmacologist ' s deposition — Dr. Schmeideberg: According to the communications which have reached me, about thirty grm. (one ounce) of Coca-Cola syrup is used to a glass of about 210 ccm. of tbe beverage. There might, therefore, be taken daily of this beverage 1,400 to 2,800 ccm. without any fear of injury to health from the quantity of caffeine contained therein. Rather might the amount of liquid and of sugar taken at the same time prove injurious by impairment of the digestive activity of the stomach. As a matter of fact, such large quantities of the beverage will but rarely, if ever, be taken. Most consumers will undoubtedly limit themselves to less. In such cases injury is entirely out of the question. Indeed, the misuse of Coca- Cola by taking it in excess, as so happens with alcoholic drinks, is in general not to be found. Not only can no well-founded objection be urged against the manufacture of food products containing caffeine by tbe introduction of this in any form, but rather should the extension of such manufacture be regarded with favor in the interests of the public welfare. On the basis of the preceding explanation, I sum up my opinion thus: That Coca-Cola syrup repre- sents a food product containing caffeine, and tbat, even in the maximum quantity which may be generally taken daily, it cannot, because of its caffeine content, be accounted injurious to health. Send for Our Booklet " The Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth About Coca-Cola " — it will interest you. It ' s just a plain, frank statement of vital facts concerning this delightful beverage. There ' s no eva- sion, no twisting of truth to fit our purpose, no dry-as-dust argument but facts — told in a way that will give you real pleasure in the reading. THE COCA-COLA CO., Atlanta, Ga.
