HE class of 1900 has cherished the idea of publishing an annual during its junior year
ever since its organization in 1896. "Pegasus" is the realization of that idea.
The purpose of the staff has been to make the annual an embodiment of college
life here in Albion. We have encouraged the writing of short, lively, college stories
and unconventional verse. Our pages, We hope, attest this purpose in some degree. We have
tried to give the annual this character with the intention of stimulating the production of
typical college literature in the future in Albion. Such work should be as much a part of
our life as athletics. Both tend to create a college atmosphere and to form the distinctively
college character. '
We are indebted to the whole student body for the support which they have accorded
us. The loyalty of the Juniors has been remarkable. Contributions have been received from
a large percentage of the class. Whatever faults there may be in the work, they .are due to
inexperience on our own part as well as on the part of the rest of the student body in this
sphere of activity. The intentions of all concerned have been good and the Work conscientious,
at least. Better things are to be hoped for in the future. .
Considerable time has been spent by Mr. Gill, the Alumni editor, in compiling a directory
of the graduates for publication in the "Pegasus," This feature cannot but be of--great
benefit to the college community. The work has been very thorough and besides, this direc-
tory is the only one that has been published in many years.
E HE editors of PEGASUS deem it proper to mention the good omens that have assured us
of success in the publication of our annual.
Each editor has worn a rabbit's foot, Week after week, and the editor-in-chief, by
chance, found a horse shoe behi11d SchWartz's blacksmith shop. Every one of us looked
over the right shoulder to see the last new moon. We wished good things for the college and
prosperity for the class of 1900. We have consulted the oracles-CProfessors,j and they tell
us that we' need have no fear for the future. They tell us the roses ahead are Without
thorns, the skies are unclouded, the lions are chained.
We received letters daily from all parts of the state inquiring when our annual was to be
published. We do not care to censure these good friends for we understand with Longfellow
"Patience is a plant '
i That grows not in all gardens "
Contributions are still coming to us by mail, by express, and by freight. In spite of
our charge of twenty-five cents per line for printing poetry, Cwhich heavy tax we thought
would exclude poetryj we have received, all told, 563 poems. If we had neglected making a
charge for such composition we should have received by this time sufficient verse to make a
volume the size of Webster's dictionary.
In the choice of material for PEGASUS the editors have tried to please all. We have
chosen matter with deep thought suitable for quiet moments when the mind is fresh. And
we have selected jokes, and puns, and lighter compositions adapted well to rest the mind when
oppressed with care and business.
One word of caution to the class we think is necessary. When PICGASUS shall Come f,-Om
the press, words of praise and congratulations will begin to pour in. Our word of caution
Humility, that low, sweet root,
. From which all heavenly virtues shoot.

And if any critic shall score us, let the Words of the sage sustain us-

" Modesty, thou art a jewel fit to adorn the diadem of a.kiugp thou art a badge of truest courage:
thou art the mark of conscious greatness: thou art the fittest adornment of a useful life "
AMUEL DAVIS BARR is a man whose long and useful life is crowned with modesty. No student of Albion College
who knew him can ever forget the unassuming sweetness and power of his life.
The old, old story, yet ever new, of struggle against poverty and victory over circumstance, was repeated in the life of
brofessor Barr. He was born on a farm at Gouverneur, St. Lawrence County, New York, July 7, 1826g and he early learned
what real work means. Farm life is never easy and seventy years ago the drudgery was much greater than at the present
time. Yet the work that was required of him laid the foundation for the hale and rugged old age that is now his' crowning glory.
His aptitude for mathematics, and his pedagogical instincts were developed at an early age. When but a youth of eighteen he
began to teach in a district school, and "boarded 'round." In 1851 he entered Williams College as Junior, and graduated in 1853, His
ability asa teacher and his skill as a mathematician gained for him, before his graduation, the election to the chair of Mathematics and
Natural Sciences in the Gouverneur Wesleyan Seminary, a chair which he held for three years, and then resigned to study Law.
In 1858, at the age of thirty-two, he was admitted to the bar, and he practiced in this profession for seven years. Professor Barr was
a good lawyer, but he was needed in another field. In .1865 he was appointed Deputy Superintendent of Public Instruction, for the State
of New York. While in this office, he accomplished a work in the educational system of the state that will stand as a monument to his
genius and integrity as long as integrity and genius are considered worthy of remembrance. He re-mapped and re-mimbei-Cd all the
school districts in the state, defining the boundaries of each district so closely that the fraud and thievery which had been so prevalent
in the loose system that had formerly prevailed, were rendered impossible.
From 1868 to 1882, Professor Barr held positions in various educational institutions. For two years he was Principal of the Penn
Yan Academy, at Penn Yan, New Yorkg for two years he was Professor of Mathematics in the Military Institute at Rochesterg and
for seven years he was Principal of the West High School in Cleveland, Ohio. In 1882 he was elected Professor of Mathematics in
Albion College, a chair which, for fifteen years, he filled with distinction to himself, and with credit to the College.
As an educator Professor Barr stood in the foremost rank. 'His executive and administrative ability was severely tested during
his official career in the department of Public Instruction in New York. In the matter of school legislation, that state owes verv much
of her present prosperous condition, to his wise and untiring efforts. Several times he has been honored with unsolicited teifdei-S of
positions. At the request of President Mark Hopkins, he was elected to the chair of Mathematics in Williams College, his alma mater.
Several times he has been elected to Professorships which he did not seek, but for which there were many other applicants.
Professor Barr genuine. He won the love of his students by an unaffected interest in their welfare, which went bevond the
narrow limits of the class-room, and followed them wherever they went. Many an alumnus of Old Albion treasures letters which
Professor Barr has written him, congratulating him on some success, or comforting him in some sorrow. A man of deep pietv and
strong faith, he could speak familiarly, yet reverently of the Son of God as One with whom he walked and talked day by day. 'As a
Christian, his life was positive, and his infiuence strong among us. For the fifteen years that he was in our midst he toiled for the
building of noble character and holy life.
Two years ago he resigned the chair which he had filled so acceptably, and retired to private life, removing from Albion to
Cleveland, where he now lives in the enjoyment of a superb old age, strong and virile as the old age of a good man should be. The
Junior Class delight to do him honor, for we recognize in him the consummation of high ideal, of noble purpose, and most unselfish
service. To his seventy-three years may many- more be addedg and may his life be multiplied in the hundreds of lives that have felt
the inspiration of absolute truth and honor that his life has given.

E T i Q H HOW TO CULTIVATE THE lwmciuariou.
Imagination is the pictuiizing facultj of the soul, it is the powci which piesents ideas and forms
combinations. There are several kinds of imagination, first, the scientific or con-
by which the scientist is enabled to hypothesize results not yet actual from a study
conditions. Then, there is the inventive or creative imagination, which manifests itself
in new and modified
of present facts -and
usually in- practical time and labor saving inventions, and i11 which the reproductive and comparative pro-
cesses work over their materials subject to theidea of the good. There is also an aesthetic imagination
which Coleridge has divided into the "epic imagination," the perfection of which is in Milton, and the
di unatic, of which Shakespeare is the absolute master. In this form of the imagination the material is
In developing any form of imagination, first, have at hand abundant material: second, be intimate
with nature, third, picturize clearly, fourth, analyze fully, fifth, synthesize completely: sixth, idealize
greatly, seventh, poetize abundantlyg eighth, 'travel extensively, ninth, originate daily: tenth, illustrate
freely. The commonest experiences of our sense life, in leaf, flower, and shrub, the lights and shadows
of 'tn ascending and descending sun, afford boundless material for every imagination. When our ears and
eyes are open, the world is full of the thoughts and voices of God. Q
Among the processes that weaken and limit imagination are. reading to no definite purpose, the
absence of idealizing our life daily, the unwillingness to search for words which will not under-express or
over-express the mental picture, our assumption that when we know a part it may 'stand for the whole.
Day-dreaming and castle-building are both morally and mentally bad. To idealize should imply obligation
to realize the ideal.
FREDERICK LUTZ, A. M.
N THE study of foreign languages many faculties come into play, among which the imagination is by no
means the least. A language is, so to speak, the living history of a people, showing forth 'its make-up
its customs, its inner life. And words also have histories.
Now surely it requires imagination to enter into this spirit of a' language so that one is for the time
being, following the great lights of all the departments of human knowledge by means of that language:
so that one is thinking and living and playing in the thoughts of the great men that have benefited the
race. It is by the flight of our imagination that we appreciate art, literature, science and history, in short

the true life of the people. It is due to this trained- imagination that we enjoy the wealth that ancient
art and literature so freely bequeathed to us. It is by poetic fancy that we can read, in translation at
least, all that is noble and true and beautiful in any literature.
It is by the imaginative, sympathetic study of foreign languages that we learn to grasp the full imagery of the Bible,
not only through Hebrew and Greek but 'through as many languages as possible, the different versions being not infrequently
the best commentaries. As children, our imagination is cultivated by the study of languages, in the little legends and tales
our mothers read and tell to usg and later in life as students, our imagination carries us farther, and we are permitted to
live with the Muses on Parnassus, with Ulysses in his wanderings, with Dante in his circles of the World to come, with Goethe
in the wonderful career of Faust, with Shakespeare in his unsurpassed world of dramas.
Withoiit going beyond the sphere of languages proper-for language is the vehicle of thought-let me close my illustrations.
HENRY BENNER, Ph, D.
O MANY who think the subject of mathematics an exceedingly uninteresting study, it may be a matter of great surprise
to know that the imagination is an important faculty in the successful prosecution of the subiect. Bothbthe represen-
tative and creative imagination play an important part in elementary as well as in advanced inaihematics,
The most elementary processes in arithmetic furnish abundant means for cultivating this faculty. The child learns the
fundamental operations by means of objects. It is, however, impossible to employ these all the time and then the imagination
can be used and consequently cultivated.
In the solution of problems in arithmetic and algebra the teacher frequently finds it necessary to aid the imagination by
drawings and other devices so that the facts may be properly kept before the mind. And vet even with all these aids
inaccurate conclusions are often drawn simply because the mind has been unable to hold before itself all the details of the
problem proposed for solution. More urgent yet is the need of this faculty in the discussion of problems to see iust what
effect variations in data and conditions have upon the final form of the result. - '
Perhaps in no other branch of mathematics is the imagination so much needed as in geometry. Ulmagination is only
second to reason in the right study of geometry." We all know how much trouble some propositions in solid geometry
make because the pupil cannot see the figure as he ought to see it. And what is true in elementary solid geometry is true
to a still greater degree in descriptive geometry and in all advanced geometry. Geometry and algebra aid each other in
discovering truths, and an examination of mathematical models made to illustrate higher geometric forms will convince any one
that the power of imagination needed to study the subject is more than ordinary.
The achievements and predictions of astronomy are marvelous, but to make them or eniov them we need both mathe-
matics and imagination. Not in poetry alone but in applied mathematics also does imagination bodv forth the forms of
things unknown and give to airy nothing a local habitation and a name. '
R. CLYDE FoRD, Ph. M.
MAGINATION is an element of aesthetic tone, and involves appreciation which is the n1easu1-Q gf msthetic tone Hoey
appreciative is one of literature or art? The answer tells what the imagination is. . i
Doubtless every one possesses, or has possessed, the germs of an imagination. Now the question is: How shall what
is rudimentary become full grown, and from the seeds of an imagination come an active, healthy, developed iimufilmtionja
At the outset we may say that the imagination is wilful, in no great debt to real experience, possessing aii, independent
nature of its own, therefore, obviously, direct training will be too vigorous. The imagination, howeverigroizvs unconsciously
by what it feeds on,-here is the opportunity. for its cultivation. ' ' f

Cuts. ELISHA BARR, A. M.
,IOLOGY appeals to the imagination in two ways:-First, pictoriallyg second, constructivelyg or, perhaps, it would be
better to say, first, as presenting a mental image previously either seen or unseen and second, as presenting to the
reason a group of conditions that should be arranged about a central fact as tributary or contributory to it. Of the
former I shall have little to say, as it is of a relatively low order, and, though important in and of itself, it is shared by
other subjects to quite as great an extent. It is to the biologist what the imagination is to the artist, in like manner
enabling him to build up from visual remembrance, from verbal description or from constructive reflection a picture that he
may hold so firmly before his mind that it may be represented as real. It also enables him to form an ideally simple con-
cept of an object in itself often complex.
In the other case many purely ideal conditions may be presented to the mind involving totally different points of
approach to the central thought and it is only by so building these up or by so displaying their inner characteristics that
they may be readily grasped as a whole that their real significance and interrelationships can be seen.
Many of the problems of biology are physically indeterminate and it is only as their factors may be individually and col-
lectively apprehended, as they may be so disposed as to give a mental perspective, as relative values may be weighed and
measured, that we can hope for their solution. The value of biology lies largely in this:-That it compels this constructive
ideation and the powers thus gained are of the highest and noblest that the reason can attain.
Science, to be sure, deals with facts, but facts are but the pabulum on which the imagination feeds that it may build
up the great body of truth to which science has given its name. As the food' is not the man, no more are facts science,
but the grouping and utilizing of them, the comprehensive welding of them into theory, alone deserves the name.
DWIGHT B. WALDO, PH, Nl.
O SMALL is the space limit at my command that I shall not stop to define imagination or distinguish true imaginative
processes from fancy, on the one side, or those constructive efforts involved in real scientific method on the other.
Suffice it to say that neither day dreaming nor the creative synthetic work of the chemist, the physicist, the
mathematician, as such, involve real imaginative effort of the kind I have in mind. Imagination, properly speaking, has,
ordinarily, as its motive force, emotion, in greater or less degree. It may be developed by keen, critical study of nature.
life and art and the interpretation thereof in other art form, either as sculpture, painting, architecture, music or literature. It
is my purpose to suggest a single plan that appears to me a practical and practicable method for the students of Old Albion
to develop and toughen the fibres of the imagination. It will be granted by readers of Western literature that Octave
Thanet, Charles Egbert Craddock, Paul Lawrence Dunbar and Mrs. Catherwood are all gifted with this world-ruling faculty. In
each of these cases the faculty of imagination has been stimulated and strengthened by proper mental food and exercise. Now, if
Octave Thanet by long practice makes the laborers and employers, the politicians and police-officers of Arkansas and Iowa to steal
into our affections, if Mrs. Murfree can read into the lives of the simple folk of the mountains of Tennessee, characters that
charm and hold us spell-boundg if Mr. Dunbar can make 'us see so plainly the struggles, temptations and virtues of his colored
brothers so that his black men of the North and South become more to us than mere interesting typesg if Mrs. Catherwood can
re-people the forests and prairies of the Illinois and Lake Country with the priests, warriors, voyageurs and red men of the seven-
teenth century, all very human to us at the dawn of the twentiethg and if by their works these authors grow strong and stronger
in creative faculties, may not the students and Alumni of Albion develop imagination by setting forth in verse and essay
and story, short or long, the life and character and work of Albion College? The way to imagine is to imagine. Only
food and exercise are needed to insure growth., And here the material is inexhaustible, the field is attractive and alluring
and effort certain of a rich reward to the persevering. My plan then, is for the students past and present to describe the
life they have lived and are living. Motive is surely not lacking for our best effortsg the l'111LtQl'iQLl is bgundlegg and as vet
'Albion students have done almost nothing in the field of distinctively college literature. The history of Old Albion is yet
unwritteng it ought to be written, it can best be written by her sons and daughters. As to material, we have much the
same earth and sky, spring showers, summer days, autumn tints and winter snows, streams, forests and meadows, that the
poet and prose artists have worked over since the dawn of literature. Then we have distinctively our own Newburg and
Bath Mills, the Swimming Hole and Brockway's Woods, Dutchtown and Dickie Hill, the Fair Ground and the Cemetery, Willow
Walk and the Pond, Up the River and Crystal Lake, Duck Lake and Montcalm, the Camp Ground and Marengo, not to mention
Homer, Springport, Parma and Concord with their volumes of romance bound up in picnic and sleighride. Still farther out
and in another way, Hillsdale and Olivet, Kazoo and Lansing, could each their separate tales of Albion exploits unfold. To
shift the scene-a volume could not tell the tales of Middle Building. John Wesley and the Father of His Country have
seen enough in twenty years inside the Chapel, by day and by unight, to keep some future Irving from mischief during his
college course. Historic truth, stranger than fiction, could furnish many a readable chapter when our Kipling discovers him-
self to us. Swarthout could furnish material for a novelette on "High Licensed Cider, an Effective Temperance Methodf'
Smith could give outlines for a bright skit on "The Light that Failedg" Lou Welch could tell of "One hundred Yards in
Record Time as the Clock was Striking the Hourg" Hagle might furnish the plot for a tale entitled, "Chapel on the
Diamondg" Ben. Bennett could give material for a poem-"Woodman, Spare that Treeg" Springer would be a sure source on
"The Passing of the Sidewalkf' Mr. Harvey'could tell the elements of "How I Secured the Clappersf' Hagle knows about
"Coats and Goats." A hundred and one stories could be written of the days that have gone by. But the present is no less
fruitful. Fraternity people and Independents-typical and otherwise, the literary societies, the co-operative store, the various
organizations, all yield themselves to treatment. Class room grind, quiz, discussions and reports, laboratorv, observatorv,
gymnasium and library will surely prove fruitful with the coming of our Gilbert Parker. Then there is the Freshman. He
is in a class by himself. So is the Sophomore. The same of Juniors and Seniors. The Faculty will not be missing and
how human, from President to Tutor! Nor will Father Corliss or Mr. 'Barry be forgotten. "Mary's Club" will yet prove
a bonanza to some student literateur and some one of a hundred admirers will try to do justice to Mary herself-and will fail.
Athletics yield themselves easily to literary treatment. . "Yale Yarns," "Harvard Stories" and "Princeton Stories" would
have been sadly mutilated with baseball, football and rowing torn out. Then, lastly, there are the deeper things of student
life, temptations overcoming and overcome, sorrows and joys, new purposes, struggles and victoriesg the evolution from
youth to manhood and womanhood. Character is made hereg and there is a World of faith and hope and love compressed
into the life history of a college class. Shall not some Eliot or Ward or Tolstoi or Hugo delve in this mine of mines?
Why shall not all the students of Old Albion in seeking well rounded development give the Imagination, that "Kind Bee of
the Intellect," an opportunity for development by carefully studying and interpreting the life they live?
R J I7 ASHLEY,
By Fuoivms MARTIN.
Dr Ashley was born in P1862 in Stokoe-on-Trent, England. At the age of Sixteen he Came to this
countly and located in Brooklyn. Later he removed to Zanesville. Ohio, and afterwards became a student in
Ohio Wesleyan University.
During his college days, he was known as a diligent seeker after truth. He was honored with
the Presidency of the Y. M. C. A., and that of the Euteyrean Musical Society. He knows Ohio Wesleyan
as the place where he formed many friendships of a lasting character.
1+ rom O W. U. he went in 1890 to Boston University and there as valedictorian took the degree of S. T.
B With this came an appointment to a traveling scholarship. Then from the classic halls of the New
Woild he went to seek the treasured lore of the old.
Dr Ashley studied at Jena, Leipsig, Berlin- and Oxford. His instructors at the first institution were
at Oxford Laird, Fairbairn, Wallace and Sanday. i -
In 180-L he returned to Boston to receive the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. In lSSl5 he became
president of the Genesee Wesleyan Seminary, Limll, N- Y. There he spent three years of successful admin-
istration V '
In January, 1898 he came to Albion College. He brought the breath of the Atlantic with him. He has
the power both to administer and to inspire. He comes with the newest methods in teaching and with a sound
system of philosophy. His classes are full of interest. His talks are replete with forceful anecdotes and
As a preacher and lecturer he is widely known. He is now lecturing on an average of four times a
week. His themes, 'Savonarola, ' 'l he Saint of the Middle Ages, 'Boomerangs and Mirrors," "University Life at
Home, ' "University Life Abroad ' The Making of a Man, and Axiom No. 10 are treated in his own masterly

Psychological Association and is president of the College Department of the State Teachers Association.
Since coming to Albion he has wrought great changes. The arrangement of the buildings has been
changed from basement to roof and all for the better. And while these improvements have been progressing,
funds have been pouring into 'the college coffersg endowments for new chairs have been received and a valuable
library has been bequeathed to the institution. Surely Dr. Ashley is the man for the place. "He is a ripe
scholar, a forceful orator, a wise administrator and withal a congenial"christian gentleman? For him and for the
college there remains a bright career. His maxim is, "Live out your best." Hear, Old Albion, heed the word!

By FREDERIC S. Gooukicr-1.
It was with deepest feelings of personal bereavement that the friends of Professor Robert S. Avann learned, on Saturday
morning, Dec. 3rd, 1898, that his heroic struggle with death had ended, and the patient heart was still. The memory of such a life is a
benediction and a priceless boon to all who knew him. To know him was to love him, but those who knew him best realized most
thoroughly the unfailing tenderness, the sturdy conscientiousness, the brotherly affection, and the Christian spirit which constantly
He was born in Tenterden, Kent, England, July Gth, 18-18. His parents came to this country when he was but six years old. The
influences surrounding his early life were genuinely religious. He manifested a most heroic spirit in his attempts to secure a higher
education, working his way through college, often suffering privation, yet never faltering in his determination to reach the goal of high
and accurate scholarship. He was converted while a student at Baldwin University, and thenceforth he was not disobedient unto the
heavenly vision. After his graduation in 1873, he taught three years in the Upper Iowa University. In 1877, he graduated at Harvard
University, winning the highest scholarship for proficiency in Greek, and standing sixth in a class of 177. His appointment as Proctor
followed. He continued to hold this office and to carry on graduate work until 1880, when he received the degree of M. A. The following
year he studied in the School of All Sciences, Boston University, where he received the degree of Ph. D. He married Ella Torbet, Aug,
18th, 1880. In 1883 he was elected Professor of Latin in Albion College. He resigned this position in June, 1898, by reason of the
progress of his disease, and his increasing weakness and suffering. ,
Less than a year before his death, in consultation with high medical authorities, he was told that he, had but a few months to live.
He went on with his work, however, with the utmost fortitude and courage. Again and again he said, "It is all right." Religion, always
real to him, was never more real than in those last months.
In his college work he was, in the truest sense, a scholar in instincts and tastes. He was painstaking and accurate, and thoroughly
devoted to his work. Full of loyalty to the college, his interest in it never flagged. Full of love for the church, his devotion to it was
unceasing. Full of enthusiasm for everything that he counted right, his conscientiousness and adherence to principle were patent to all.
His devotion to the cause of temperance was one of the most marked characteristics of his life. His love for humanity made him
an implacable foe of the liquor traffic in all its forms.
This meagre outline of a rich and fruitful life will be filled in, by those who loved him, with the picture of a man inspired bv the
highest ideals, actuated by the purest motives, and filled with the spirit of Him who went about doing good. "The memory of the' just
The funeral services were held on Tuesday, Dec. Gth. As far as possible they were in accordance with the wishes which Professor
Avann had expressed. After a prayer service at the house the remains were taken to the chapel, where they lay in state. The chapel
had been decorated by the ladies of the Faculty. The floral offerings were numerous. Professor Avann's chair was masked with
flowers sent by Dr. L. R. Fiske. Rev. A. E. Craig presided at the service. Scripture lessons were read by Rev. P. J. Maveety and Rev.
W. T. Jaquess, and Rev. Washington Gardner offered prayer. Remarks were made by Dr. Craig and Professor Delos Fall, and a message
was read from Dr. Fiske, who by reason of sickness could not be present. The closing address was given by President Ashley.
Several selections were sung by a quartet composed of Professors Fall and Barr, Mrs. Martha Armstrong and Kate Calkins.
At the close of the service the congregation united in singing "God be with you till we meet again." The Faculty acted as a guard
of honor to escort the remains to Riverside Cemetery.

fpistorg of the Glass of 1900.
Should you ask me of the classes,
Of the long array of classes,
Which have run the race for sheep-skins,
Through the classic halls of Albion,
Which of all this line of classes,
Of this endless line of classes,
Had achievements far the highest,
Won the guerdon in the class-room,
Won the vict'ries on the "gridiron,"
Won the vict'ries on the "diamond,"
Won the horn of reputation,
Won the horn of detonation,
Yelled the longest and the loudest,
Was in ev'ry thing most perfect,
Was in all and all most glorious?
And I called them up before me.
All the phantom line of classes
Of the present, past, and future,
I would answer, I would tell you,
" 'Tis the class of 1900,
Glorious class of lSl00."
'Tis the class with record spotless,
Consummation of all classes
At the ending of the century,
As its colors are a symbol,
Went in green and comes out golden.

Wlmexi it raised "Io Triumphe,"
Other class yells seemed as silent
As the echoes from the hill-tops,
Mid the wild majestic thunder.
Ye who love a song of glory,
Song of victory and honor,
Listen to the tale I tell you
Of the four years march triumphant
Of the class of 1900. ,
Memory, the twilight phantom,
As she's standing here before me,
Shows to me in quick succession
All her many colored pictures,
Which make up the tale I tell you,
Of the class of 1900.
You shall hear how first as Freshmen,
Did the class of 1900,
Show the first germs of its greatness,
How when first we came together,
All these parts of whole so perfect
All the Faculty looked on us
With a silent satisfactiong
And the other classes envious,
Sighing sadly often murmured
"O, for such a bright beginning,
Such a promise of perfection,
As the class of 1900."
It was '96 in-Autumn,
In the red and golden Fall time,
And the college bells resounding,
Far and near their echoes sending,
Reached our ears and gave us warning
That we must away to college.
There a page lay, white and spotless,
On which we must leavevour record,
Though in tears we left the home nest,
Yet how joyous were our heart-beats,
And such lofty aspirations, '
And such noble resolutions,
As accompanied each one hither!
We were Freshmen' And how joyous
Were the thoughts which filled our bosoms.
Ol the glory and the gladness,
And the happiness how boundless,
That we felt as college students!
And the castles so ephemeral,
Which we built of airy fabric,
Were so beautiful and wondrous?
Dreams sped fast from mystic Dream-land,
Dreams of all the bright to-morrows,
And the foot-prints deep behind us,
, Wliich we'd leave upon the bright sands,
On the gridiron and the diamond.
True we were reviled and laughed at,
As are all despised Fresh men,
But we bore our persecution,
Witli a calmness and a patience,
Worthy of the ancient martyrs.
When we saw the Seniors boastful,
How our hearts were filled with rev ience
For the Juniors we felt envy,
For the Soph'n1ores, fear and tremblin
Only toward the Preps so tender
Was our dignity asserted.
Then there rises up a picture,
Which inspired such awe and rev ience,
That we held our breath in silence,
That we looked with adoration,
That we made a low obeisance-
'Twas the Faculty before us,
As we saw them first in chapel.
We began our life in college,
Swiftly dancing, gay and joyous,
Sped the first weeks, all ,unheeded
We had learned by observation
All the college ways and myst'ries,
We had learned the subtle meaning
4 U9 d S6
Of such words as ' flunk an pony,"
"Quin," "conditioned," "plucked" and "buzzing,"
We had learned to finc t e Lo-op,"
We had caught a glimpse of Greekdom,
All our boys now wore high collars,
Made their hair part in the middle,
We had written home the wondersg
Some had learned to make their schedules,
So they left six hours for "buzzing,"
We had had our first class meeting,
All our officers were chosen,
And to make the story shorter,
We had come into existence,
As the class of 1900.
Now, a day was fast approaching,
But at length the strife was ended.
And impatient were we waiting, i ' i, A And the Sophomores, dejected,

c ' There were read these two announ
But at last 'mid looks admiring,
Out we marched
As that ever famed six hundred
In the mouth of Hell rode boldly,
to-woe or triumph,
"Then began the deadly conflict,
Hand to hand they fought together,
Long and loudly raged the battle"
'Twixt the Sophomores and Fresh men.
In the door the Freshmen maidens
Now despaired and now applauded.
To and fro now surged the vict'ry,
First with one, then with the other.
Madly clutching at the colors,
Like an ocean wave advancing,
Came the Soph'more, then retreated.
Which iilled all with dire foreboding,
That the Preps and 1900,
At a time and place conflicting,
Each should hold important meetings.
Now the Preps were young and foolish,
Had they been endowed with wisdom,
Had they dived deep down in science
To secure its hidden treasures,
Their own reason would have told them
That two things cannot, by Nature,
Occupy a space together.
Promptly at the time appointed,
All the Freshmen were assembled,
Seated there in solemn conclave.
Presently there came a rapping P
And a timid gentle tapping,
Then the door was softly opened,
And there peered in from the darkness, 5
Trembling Preps with faces pallid il
And their hair stood up with terror,
Yet they vainly had imagined,
They could drive away the Fresh men.
Then uprose brave 1900,
Bold courageous 1900,
And the Preps, all in confusion,
Vanished quickly in the darkness,
Scattered in a single instant,
Like the chaff blown by the storm-wind. i
But beware of youthful fancy,
When 'tis ruled by fear and anger!
For they planned to do us mischief,
Planned by stealth to do us mischief,
So they lay outside in ambush.
And as he was going homeward,
Seized the leader of the Freshmen,
Then with trembling hands they bore him
Through the rain-storm and the darkness,
And with cruel hands they bound him
To a tree upon the campus.
Then the wind used all its fury,
And the rain used all its lashes,
Sadly, cruelly, they beat him.
Soon the Freshmen missed their leader,
Missed his presence from their number,
'Twas in vain they all sought for him,
'Twas in vain they called so loudly.
But to make the story shorter,
1900 found the missing,
With the gracious Preps' assistance,
Who did not find bolts and door locks,
Barricades of chairs and tables,
Proof against the Freshman valor.
And in chapel in the morning
Many Prep seats were quite vacant,
Many Preps wore downcast faces,
And they bowed in meek submission,
And in silence begged for mercy,
Ev'ry time they saw a Freshman.
From that day the Preps, we noticed,
Were much sadder and much wiser,
And 'twas said by good Dame Rumor,
Not one Prep e'er told his best girl,
How he tied down on the campus
President of 1900.
Now before my closed reyes passing
Is a happy, joyful vision,
Merry mirth and jolly jesting
Of that night, to us eventful,
When we held our Freshman banquet
And a transient smile of pleasure
Wreaths the dreamv lips of Mem ry,
As she shows this well-known picture
Long the Freshman's face was paling
Day by day his step grew slower,
And to him life seemed a burden.
All this told a taleof study,
Told of "wee' sma' hours" of study,
So he dropped three hours of Latin,
Planned an eve of recreation,
To bring back his good condition,
And it was a real oasis
In the desert of his study.
Could I sing aisong of tables
Groaning 'neath their weight of good things,
Song of Freshman lads and lassies,
Secret signs and looks mysterious,
Thrilling toasts and smiles and laugh te
Of the tales we told our room-mates
To escape their eyes so watchful,
How they'd laid away in secret
Yards and yards oif rope, now useless,
Could I tell of how the Soph'more,
When he found his birds all Hying,
Gnashed his teeth and cried in anguish,
Madly beat the doors and windows,
With his head and other weapons,
Could I mortal tongue awaken
To a song of that gay evening,
How the Central building basement
Seemed to us a bower Elysian,
If I told how one small Fresh man,
Who had bravely served as watch man,
At his post was lost in slumber,
For we enterprising Freshmen,
Having sold the most of tickets,
Had the choice of all the places.
How we crowded in the gall'ry!
And from our position lofty,
We looked down on all the others.
How we rent the air with yelling,
Drowning out the other classes!
How the speakers and professors
All looked up with pride and wonder
At the class of 1900.
Now again the days were flitting
Like those airy fairy creatures,
Children of imagination,
Pass our eyes in quick succession,
As we sit before the lirelight.
Winter his 'farewell has taken,
Fickle spring has wept at parting,
We had learned the way to "Newburg,"
We had taken strolls in "Dutchtown,'l
We had learned the charm so subtle
Of a summer evening's twilight,
When all study is forgotten.
And within the cold dark building
All night long was locked securely,
If the Muse would thus inspire me,
I could give a faint idea
Of the long past Freshman banquet
Of the class of 1900.
College day was next in order,
And that too we long remembered,
We had had examinations,
We had also home departed,
And at last again in Autumn
'We emerged with joyous 'feelings
From the thralldom of Freshmentry.
Now from our position lofty,
From our pedestal of wisdom,
We looked down upon the Fresh men,
Timid, trembling little creatures.
Then one morning during chapel,
From the noisy deaf'ning medley,
In there marched a line of Freshmen, 'N' 500 0,1151 one gouud is distinguished?
With their shirt-fronts quite concealed gagg.-39537, vpis the yell, H10 T1-iumphey'
Cy a monstrous bow of.ribbon, Ending with a loud "Rah, Sophomoresf'

We played Wen the role of Sopwmoresi E 555 1 rep and 11 reshman, bopll. and Junioi .
F1-Om their Cozlts We tore the wlom, Hear again the Muse does fail me.
But we saw we hurt their feelings, "i f-::1Q "5 ,' td I 55" Had Dcmosthenes been Present,
So, magnanimous as ever,
We thought best to share the vict'ry.
When we held our second banquet,
Novelty was only lacking,
To make it equal to the banquet,
Which we held when we were Fresh men.
Only two, from all, were missing,
Who had, with their wonted kindness,
Stayed at home to please the Freshmen.
Basketball games made us champion,
Baseball too, won from the Freshmen.
But as spring was drawing nearer,
Now the Fates once more propitious
One more victory were spinning
For the class of l900.
We were crowded in the chapel,
All the air was rent with yelling,
Drums and horns and clashing cymbols,
Many instruments of torture.
But what means this rumbling, rolling,
Shrieking, yelling, stamping, laughing,
Out into the night proceeding,
Filling it with unseen terrors? '
He would have been filled with envy.
llwas Cottrell we chose as speaker,
And we listened to him proudly.
How all held their breath in waiting!
This suspense at last was ended,
When the judges had decided
That Cottrell should be the winner.
Thus the horn of fame and glory,
Horn of victory and honor,
Bears the name-plate of the Sophomores,
Of the class of 15500.
Now we're Juniors. Oh, the glory,
That we feel, as we're approaching
Goal of our four years ambition,
Cap and gown and then diploma
And the foremost seat in chapel,
Which are ours when we are Seniors.
College life is no more novel,
Now we love our Alma Mater,
Love its old familiar aspect,
Love its halls and shady campus.
And not unalloyed with sadness
Are our thoughts that we have finished
Three years of our life in college.
We decide to keep the memory
Of the class of 1900
In the minds of future ages
Through the pages of an Annual.
PICGASUS needs not my praises,
Ye who read its well filled pages
Can tell best how we succeeded.
It has been my happy mission
From oblivion to rescue
This great class and its achievements
When we've been conceited Seniors,
And at last receive diplomas,
With the Faculty all weeping,
And the lower classes mourning,
And the college halls all echoing,
Sadly, mournfully resounding,
And the trees o'er all the campus
Rustling sadly, sighing, moaning,
Then our History is ended.
Memory has quickly vanished,
Dear familiar welcome phantom.

fence, or knee deep in a muddy stream. Then you drag your'
self into camp and sit down Con the groundj to a sumptuous
repast of tacks, pig and dishwater. Just as the rain begins to
pour you are called out for guard duty. Oh, it's fue, and the
worst of it is, we'll never see a Spaniard. I'm glad I'm the only
representative of the Bourne family in this scrape. It's a good
thing Fred and Harry were too young to go. Take a foo.l?s ad-
vice, brothers, and leave the army alone. I've given my crazy
room-mate, Jack, the same advice and by continued admonitions
I hope to keep him where he is, though he is spoiling for a
chance to try army life with me.
College seems a thousand times more attractive than ever
before. Though my eyes rest continually on the cheerless,
monotonous scenery about our camp, the visions I really see are genial and familial the old chapel with the students
gathered reverently together for the morning service, the recitation rooms, each with its earnest instructor and eager
learners, the brightly lighted hall where but a short time ago I shared in debate and orationg the smooth-scraped
diamond on the campus, Where I hoped to help old Mt. Union win new honors this term. And you must know
how I miss the quiet, helpful gatherings the fellows have on Sunday afternoonsg for a very different spirit rules here.
Well, enough of that. Now I want father to cut out the
rest of this letter and paste it in his hat. My subject naturally
separates into two main divisions. Cab S S S S-That is
to say, my Sl5.6O is gone. Any collateral which isn't especially
needed in Ohio can be well utilized in relieving the present
financial stringency existing in Alabama.
Q65 Mr. Carl Bourne, knowing that his father hath somewhat
of iniiuence at the capital of the commonwealth of Ohio, respect-
fully requests him to seek with all energy the honorable dis-
charge of said Carl Bourne, private in Co. B, ...th Ohio Volun-
teer Infantry, from the service of the United States.
Division C65 is very important. Please heed it if you forget
everything else I ever wrote. With love to all.

MT. UNION COLLEGE, ALLI1XNCIC, O.,
-we f -. - June 10, 1898,
Dem' old Cm'Z:-When you hear my tale of woe you'll be glad
you're hot hereto share the general discomliture. I'd give a farm
if I were with you now, learning to be a soldier.
Do you remember the story in the old reader about the
steward who had a lot of bad news to tell his master? You know
he began with "the magpie's dead" and worked up cautiously and
slowly from one misfortune to another until he capped the doleful climax with the news that his employer's parents
had died and the family fortunes were shattered.
I've been trying to ix up some such scheme of arrangement for this mournful epistle, but I've given it up, and here
goes just as the items chance to come into my mind. I'll be brief because I must "fohn" all night or get swamped.
I suppose you have missed base ball this spring term. Let me tell you that the nine was unmercifully drubbed
last Saturday and has disbanded. That's number one. Then four innocent classmates of yours were expelled last
week for hazing that they didn't do, and all the fellows in the
class have withdrawn from college and gone home. The next
item makes me weep even more. The new social rules have
been announced and put into force. 1-Ienceforth your unfortu-
nate room-mate may call at Sl-L West Sherman street but once
a week, and then he must hasten away when ian hour has
passed. And still there's more to follow. We are having a
series of quizzes in Logic that would throw you into convul-
sions. Let me congratulate you that you are miles out of
Prexy's reach. But it gets worse and worse. Every Junior
and every Senior is to be required to give an oration in
chapel. The faculty will not think of waiting till next year to
introduce this innovation, although commencement is so near,
so I will catch my share of its force.
With base ball gone sky high, and one whole class vam-
oosed, with a social code adopted that prohibits moonlight
walks and boat rides up the river, with all the professors and
tutes pounding us as hard as Prexy is in Logic, and with a
little piece for everyone to speak at chapel,-it's a terrible
War is-well, what it's tersely said to be, you know, but
college is worse. If you have any roseate ideas of college life
at Mt. Union, just relieve your mind of them and be thankful
you're working for Uncle Sam at 2515.60 per.
Yours in distress,

Cfbe 6I'QCIl Bank Robberg at Ciolbtvclter,
OR THE PURSUIT OF THE JOE HOWARD GANG,
nv CHARLES Murrow PERRY,
Author of "Tabulated Statistics of the Potato Crop for the Year I876."
T WAS an August morning in the year of 'g2. Business was taking its wonted
course. The drays were beginning to rumble on the streets. All was bathed
in hopeful morning sunlight. No one dreamed of impending disaster.
But this peaceful scene was soon disturbed. Vague rumors began to
spread abroad. The safe of the Southern Mich. National Bank had been
cracked and 155,000 in gold extracted. The safe of the Southern Mich. National
Bank had been cracked and 510,000 in gold taken The safe of the Southern
Mich. National Bank had been cracked and 520,000 in gold stolen. The safe
of the Southern Mich. National Bank had been cracked and 830,000 in gold and
840,000 in B. 8: O. stocks stolen. Knots of citizens began to gather on the street
corners. They discussed the matter in low tones. Even the most radical social
reformer felt under constraint to be solemn
In the midst of it all the Bank building with curtains drawn down reared
its head mute and imperturbable against the sky. The tleecy clouds Hitted
over its cornices adding to the sense of its impassiveness. There seemed some-
thing heroic in its bearing its deep wound so stoically
Meanwhile two strange men had come out of the bank and inspected
one of the windows on Monroe street. They said nothing to the crowd that
gathered about but left them to speculate. Pretty soon the strangers went
back into the bank. Interest, however, continued to center about the window.
There was mystery in it.
In a little while Nels Weage approached the crowd Nels was a slight,
sharp-featured man with shifty eyes, burnsides, chin whiskers and a narrow,
wrinkled brow. His form was slightly bent so that the tails of his old cut-away
coat crossed: his arms, a little crooked at the elbow and his gait nervous and
business-like. He was a man-of-all-work and would do twice as much as any
other man in town for the same money just to display his skill. Yet every
winter the town had to support him.
As Nels entered the crowd there came over it asense of security, a feeling
that "the government still stood at Washington." He took out his foot rule
and stepped to the window. At this the bank stock jumped from 75 to 120.
Carefully he measured every bruise on the sill. NVhen he had concluded his
measurements, everyone listened to hear what he would say. He turned and
began with all condescension: "Exactly an inch and a sixteenth." His manner
implied that that ought to convey a whole world of information. He continued:
"That is precisely the width of the mark left when the bank was robbed in
1886. Who robbed the bank in 1886?" Half a dozen answered "joe Howard."
"joe Howard's crowbar opened that window last night" said Nels. They
looked at him open-mouthed. Nels began again: "NVhere did joe Howard go
after robbing the bank in 1886?" It was a matter of tradition that he had gone
toa cheese factory nine miles west of town, so Myron Fungus replied "to Stough-
ton's cheese factory." "That's it, that's it," said Nels. "Ten chances to one
ther're there now. VVho'll volunteer to go after 'em?" Myron Fungus, with big,
dull eyes and big mouth, all credulity, said to those in front of him: "Nels
'ell ketch them thieves inside o' three weeks or I miss my guess." Then he
turned partially around and said "Nels 'ill ketch them thieves inside 0' three
weeks or I miss my guess."
In a little while Nels had his company made up. Myron was to furnish
a lumber wagon and drive his team. john Stout, an old soldier, jay Whitney,
a pseudo-outlaw and a drayman by the name of Stimson comprised the rest of
the force. They laid their plans deep. Although it was then only ten 0'clock
in the morning, they instinctively chose the darkness for their actions. Seven
P. M. was the time agreed upon.
Meanwhile preparations went on. Each member of the party went to
the armory and secured a rifle. Mrs. Stout baked all day in preparing for the
expedition and vowed that she would accompany it. "It wasn't every day
that one had such an opportunity." Myron muffled his whiffletrees. Old Stout
polished the brass buttons on his soldier coat.
Seven P. M found the expedition in front of Stout's house. Nels sat on the
front seat beside Myron. Attached to his belt was a heavy sword. All
the rest were smoking, but Nels felt the occasion too much for that Forth from
the house came "Aunty" Stout with a market basket of lunch in her hand
and a sunbonnet on her head. Gladly they made a place for her ont the hind
seat when she signified her intention of going. Behind her came f'Uncle john"
with his musket and his broad-brimed hat with the gold cord around it. "Uncle
john" was a thick-set man with stuffy features, a little, pursed mouth, bulging
and a dark complexion, a fierce looking man, but withal one whom it
required three kicks to start and whom anybody could tweak by the nose-sort of a
"pud." He piled in beside of "Aunty" Myron yelled "git ap" and they
By back streets they found their way to the western part of the city and
started out on the Chicago road. Everything spoke of peace. The mellow
voices of the frogs in the lowland spoke of peace. The gentle lowing of the
herds across the lea spoke of peace. The big harvest moon spoke of peace.
But little peace was there in the hearts of men.
As the war like equipage reached the summit of a hill there appeared the
light of a fishing jack over Messenger lake. Nels commanded a halt and
Myron drawled out "whoa-o-a." "Uncle John" cocked his gun. Nels put his
hand on his sword instinctively. All were silent. A horse in a neighboring
farmyard whinneyed and was answered by one of Myron's. The suspense was
awful. Finally Nels without a word of explanation ordered an advance and
trusting that the question was answered in their leader's mind the party
They proceeded several miles in silence. Now and then the distant barking
of some melancholy farmer dog broke upon their ears. The mellow stars of
an August night shed their soft compassionate sheen over the affairs of men, A
border of half light tipped the summits of the hills. They were now within
a mile of the historic cheese factory. They proceeded with caution. Every
few rods they stopped and listened. "Uncle john" kept his musket cocked. At
last they got within twenty rods of their destination. They clambered out and
tied the horses to a 'tree. Then, under the command of Nels they started back
across the fields in order to surround the factory from the wooded side. "Aunty"
Stout insisted on keeping in the van.
With great caution, they formed a circle about the objective point. Then
they closed in. "Uncle john" kept his gun cocked vowing that if he "seen
joe Howard he'd shoot him on the spot." They came out of the woods and
the factory loomed up dark and ominous before them. Steathily they drew
nearer. Nels was beginning to realize his position. He had gone into the
matter from a desire to lead and know it all, now he began to wonder how he
should extricate himself with any credit if the expedition should fail. He was
not long to wonder, however, for up sprang twenty dark forms about the cheese
factory and bore down upon them. Resistance was useless. They dropped their
arms and ran pell-mell through the underbrush. The pursurers desisted before
reaching the outside of the woods, but the pursued abaited not their pace. When
they reached the wagon, Nels, to vindicate his right to command, whipped out
his sword and cut the halters. They then tumbled in helter-skelter and drove
clown the road at a gallop.
Was Nels crest fallen? Never a bit. He turned to l1is companions with
an air of omniscience, but with all condescension. His assurance calmed them.
They learned from him that they had won a victory. "We must make Batavia
by 3230" said he "and telegraph to Coldwater to claim the reward. Now we
know where the gang is, what do you think I'l1 do?" Nobody knew. "Just march
Company A of the 32d Mich. out there and gobble 'em up." Nels again
became a hero in his companions' eyes.
At this point it was noticed that "Aunty" Stout had been left behind.
There was some discussion but it became their unanimous opinion that this was no
time for delay. So they continued their course. All leaned forward after
the manner of them that are anxious. The noise of their progress roused the
countryside. Yellow dogs barked in wild ecstacy. Dog answered unto dog. Lights
began to appear in the farm houses. Farmer jones came out in his night
shirt and yelled to farmer Brown. The wild rout hurried on past meadow
lands and past grave yards, over brig and past kirk until it reached the
"many steepled" town.
But there is another phase to the story.
News came out with the following head lines: joe Howard in Female Attire.
The Noted Bank Robber Captured. A Score of Batavia Farmers Waiting to
No Resistance Offered.
Next day the Detroit Evening
Recieve Him at Stougl1ton's Cheese Factory.
It is now a matter of history how old Mary Stout was conveyed to the
county seat under heavy guard: how she was given a hearing and succeeded
in proving her identity. So ends the narrative.
Ut has been the writer's attempt to throw a little side light upon history.
If this chronicle has brought happiness to one human soul: if it has caused
a single heart to beat with a higher hope, his purpose has been realizedj

PROF. OTTO SAN D.
VKQFEJJQR CDTTO SHINE.
Professor Otto Sand was born in Berlin in l85S. At a very early age he evinced a marked talent for music. Wlmeii
he was only four years old he transferred to the accordion with great accuracy snatches of national and military airs which
he heard in the street. Two years later he took up the study of the violin working under Krause, Heinrizi and Zimmerman
until nine years old when he went to the renowned Muller with whom he remained several years making great progress on
both violin and viola. In pursuance of his musical studies, however, he did not neglect his general education which was
received at the Ro al Academy in Berlin. i
Possessed ofya remarkably fine soprano voice he was admitted' to the Royal Dome. At fifteen he began studying
orchestration and conducting under the Royal Chapelumaster, Karl Dinze, at the same time being concert-master of his
instructor's orchestra. During all these years of comparative child-hood he frequently played in public with great success
and appreciation. Professor Sand's life is tinged with romance. At about sixteen years of age, becoming very much fascinated
with the weird Hungarian gypsy music, he determined to live it, feel' it, master it. Disguised one of their number he
ran away, traveling for months with their roving bands through Austria-Hungary, until he could execute their music with all
the tire and abandon of a native. Still thirsting for adventure and a greater knowledge of the wild, fantastic stvle of music,
later on he joined the nomadic Poles and wandering with them through Russia-Poland and Russia as far as Siberia, mastered
their national airs and much unwritten music.
Among other instruments he played the cornet with great proficiency until having injured his lip in a duel he was
obliged to abandon that instrument. Soon after this misfortune he decided to leave Germany. Accepting an offer from an
agent at Pommern to play at the Centennial, he came to America.
He remained in this country a few months adding laurels to those already won, then recrossed the ocean and traveled
through the different countries of Europe filling engagements and completing further study and research. In a year or two
he returned to America and then engaged in playing at concerts and conducting orchestras in the city of New York.
At length hard work and the strain undergone began to wear on him and he was taken ill. Thereupon his physician
ordered complete rest and quiet. He went to Ithaca vainly hoping to meet an old friend whom he had known in Germany.
Here he passed the winter teaching Acoustics to a class from Cornell University. In the spring he went to Saginaw to visit
a friend on the stipulation that his friend should preserve strict secrecy regarding his musical ability. He spent some time
here regaining his health, and deriving great pleasure from fishing and hunting. N0 one imagined for some time that he had
the slightest appreciation of music. But at length his secret was disclosed. A Church concert was to be given at which a violin-
ist of some note was to play, but for some reason failed to appear. The friend with whom Professor Sand was staying after
much argument induced him to play. Those who heard that he was to take the violinist's place were much amused, wondering
how he would dare attempt such a thing. Almost before he had completed the first measure however, they recognized the master
hand and were silent. They could scarcely be persuaded that this was the same Otto Sand who had spent a year among them.
After this incident he was compelled to take pupils as long as he remained there.
He again returned to Europe and became Concert Master in the Haser Royal Symphony Orchestra, at Berlin. On account
of a mistake made in putting his name on the royal pass-port when the orchestra was on its way to St. Petersburg, the German
government tried to force him into the army. Being averse to military service he disguised himself as a common sailor and
escaped to America.
He located at Toledo where he engaged in musical research and teaching. In 1890 he married Miss Zella Brigham, one of
his pupils. In the spring of 1898 he was elected director of the Conservatory of the College, which position he holds at present.
Professor Sand is a master of his art, playing with a sympathy and feeling that appeals to every heart. He loves music
simply for its own sake, not caring for the name or fame it may bring him.
MKS. CDTTQ SAND.
Mrs. Otto Sand, instructor in piano and voice, is a native of Clyde, Ohio. -Her maiden name was Miss Zella Brigham.
Mrs. Sand's musical career like her husband's, began at a very early age. When only tive years old she was taken
to hear "Blind Tom" who made a great impression on her, especially in his rendition of "The Storm" and in his imitation
of various sounds. She was told that he "made the music up as he went along." This greatly fascinated her and from
that time she took much delight in going to the piano and improvising, Blind Tom's various sound imitations being under-
taken by her baby fingers.
Her extraordinary talent was soon recognized and at seven or eight she gave recitals at various places. Wlieii she was
ten years old she earned her first money by playing the organ in an Episcopal church. At one time a violinist of some
local fame was to appear in the town where she was residing. His accompanist failing him, he was at a loss to know
whom to procure. Some one suggested Miss Zella Brigham. She was sent for, but when a young girl between ten and
twelve entered the room surprise and doubt were depicted on his face. However, he let her make the attempt and was so
delighted with her playing that from that time whenever he could possibly secure her as accompanist he did so.
She studied under various instructors until she was thirteen when she went to the College of Music of Cincinnati, then
under the directorship of George VVard Nichols. Here she studied with Otto Singer, one of the greatest musicians of his
day. She soon became his favorite pupil and through his inliuence met many of the most famous musicians of the day. A
year was also spent in study at London, Ontario, where she would have received the Leipsic scholarship had her eyes not
failed compelling her to abandon work for a time. After still further study she gave herself up to concert work and teach-
ing and for a time assisted W. A. Ogden, the writer of much of our church music.
Mrs. Sand was reared in an atmosphere of highest musical appreciation. Traveling much and coming in contact as
she did with so many of the greatest musicians ofthe day, she received a great deal of practical good which could not be
acquired by many years of study in schools.
She iirst met Professor Otto Sand in Toledo at a concert in which they both participated. She became a pupil of his and
about nine years ago they were married. Since then her time has been devoted to concert work and teaching in which she
has proven very successful.

Mendelssohn's Capriccioso-MRS. OTTO SAND, Piano,
full Orchestra accompaniment.
The Choral Union, now in it's third year of existence,
was organized in the fall of 1896 by Prof. C. H. Adams.
It started out with a membership of about fifty which number
increased to almost a hundred before the year was over.
The intention of the Union was to give a grand concert
after the Cantata on which they were working was prepared. This idea,
however, developed into the Musical Festival and in June of 1897, the
Union gave the cantata "The Swan and the Skylark" by A. Goring
Thomas, as a grand finale of the Festival, in a manner to reflect
great credit on themselves and their director, Professor Adams.
In its second year the enrollment was over one hundred and
enthusiasm created from success of the year before made the mem-
bers work with renewed ardor. Handel's Messiah was the work
chosen and at the Festival in May, 1898, the Union again won praise
for itself and fully established its reputation.
This year Macfarren's May Day cantata is to be given and the
expectations for the work of the chorus are very high. 7 ,

The Cllbion Ciollege Qkchestra.
NE thing of which Albion may feel justly proud is her orchestra.
Q Professor Sand's forte is orchestral conducting and on coming
to Albion he re-organized the orchestra adding a number of
new instruments never used here before.
The organization consists of about twenty-five members and the
Work which it is doing is of a very high order. It will take a
prominent part in the coming Musical Festival. Ten artists from
Thomas' Orchestra, Chicago, have been engaged to assist at that time
and one concert will be given almost entirely by the orchestra while
in connection with the Choral Union it will play a considerable part
in the last concert of the festival. Representatives from it have at
different times both at home and abroad played with great apprecia-

HEN College opened in the fall of '92, a battered tenor horn, a delapidated base drum and a tradition were all that
remained of an organization once known as the Albion College Band. In the winter of '92-3, a few musically
inclined students held a series of protracted meetings which resulted in the present organization.
It was with no slight degree of trepidation that the passer-by-listened to those strange, wierd sounds proceeding from
Professor Lutz's room on Weditesday evenings. All sorts of rumors prevailed of how the professor took this time to get
the kinks out of his tongue after twisting it around so many tangled languages. But it soon became patent that more
important things than languages were practiced there. Those sawmill whisperings were gradually regulated and harmonized
until the several members acquired the habit of playing the same piece at the same time.
Their first public appearance was made on a stilly March evening after mortals had resigned themselves into the arms
of Morpheus. They gathered under the electric light in front of Dr. Fiske's residence and let their mellow strains float forth into
the dark night in ff serenade.
' So the Albion College Cornet Band sprang into life. Ever since then, it has been a thriving institution in the college.
Geo. E. Dean was leader from the time of its organization until he graduated in 1896. Thereupon, Mr. Chas. E. Boys, who
had been assistant leader, was elected first leader. In the fall of '97, Mr. Boys resigned his place in favor of Mr. A. J.
Gale, but assumed it again in '98.
The Band has been represented in high places throughout the land. The wind capacity developed blowing that old
cornet has insured Geo. Dean's business success. The assistant leader of the 31st Regimental Baud QC. E. Boysj and the
baritone of the 35th CC. F. Peckj came from our organization and the brass rubbed off from that old college tuba has
recently landed Geo. McCallum in the State Legislature.

Cupid held his court at Albion in those good old days of yore
And the students loved him clearly, though he was not famed for
Willingly they donned his livery, gladly bore his golden chains
And their hearts developed quickly, but alas, alas, their brains! sad!
Cupid's court grew drear and lonely, hushed were songs and
Broken were love's golden fetters and his captives wandered free.
With his silver bow string loosened and his rusty, useless darts,
With his pinions drooped and broken wandered forth this " God
Vainly parents stormed and worried but wise Prexy found a way,
So he called the profs together and they schemed day after day:
Laws they made, both stern and rigid, college rules all iron clad,
Rules that made the parents happy-rules that made the students
Happy now were profs and parents, Prexy beamed in calm
But the students sad and solemn to and from their classes went.
Pretty co-eds were not in it, ancient, staid ones held first place,
For the rigid rule at Albion judged by brains and not by face.
But Sir Cupid was not conquered, only banished for a while:
Now again he comes among us, but how changed and strange his
Cap and gown conceal his king-ship from the gaze of friend and
Underneath the garb of learning close he holds his golden bow.
Colored goggles hide the love-light dancing in his merry eyes,
And the Latin book he carries caps the climax of disguise.
Very studious is Cupid and wherever you may go,
You will find the busy fellow bohning on the verb mlm.
In his harmless Harvard note-book, lie the shining deadly darts
Do not trust him pretty co-eds: he will pierce your tender hearts
In the class-room, on the campus, at the twenty-minute call,
You can hear his bow-string twanging, you can see his victims fall
So this wise and learned monarch rules again on College Hill, And we love our merry monarch, though his court in secret
Unobserved by prof and Prexy, Cupid works his own sweet meets: '
will. For of all the fun life offers, best by far, are stolen sweets.
Pretty co-eds, stately students, athlete, theologue, and swell All the difference Prexy's rules make is that now we have to say
Q Humbly kneel before his altar, conquered by his magic spell. Not the good old phrase, " I love you," but the stately " :mm le."

FQQT HLL HN Dae,
gg-IT the beginning of the Fall Term in '98, the Football question was
somewhat embarrassing, because of the non-appearance of so many
of the old men. In fact, when we were finally at practice, there were
only two men of the team of '97 back, of whom one was not eligible to
the team. And thus it is explained why our record was no better
There were a number of new men of some experience, and
more of the right kind of material, but a football team is not built up
in a day, neither is it in a season. And thus, although they worked
hard as individuals, yet they could not expect to gain the success which
comes only with well organized team work.
Much might be said of the individual work of the men: There is
much excellent material in the college. If the under-graduates come
back next year, it is only reasonable to expect that we shall do credit
to the memory of the teams of '92 and '94.

In 1895 she was represented by H. L. Paine
and A. A. Maywood who won second in doubles.
Since that time she has not earned a place in the
linals, but has played consistently good tennis and
has been recognized as a formidable opponent. She
was represented in 1896, by H. L. Paine and F.

Last year she held the Presidency of the association.
Albion has confined her endeavors chiefly to these associations, but in 1897 she
gave an open tournament, participated i11 by players from Detroit, Hillsdale, Olivet and
U. of M. In this she won first in singles, C. G. Maywood being the fortunate man, while
in doubles Maywood and Perine won second to Michiganls first.
We feel that this is an honorable record. Where the material is to come from to
succeed these doughty heroes of the racket we do not know-there seems to be a dearth
just now-but come it must and come it will, we doubt not.

1 MR. QHESTEIR IL.. IRUEWER. Qoasn.,
The college is fortunate this spring in the inauguration of a new regime
at in athletics. Money matters have been put on a firm foundation. Students, faculty
, and townspeople have been brought together in what promises to be a most effective
organization. And finally outdoor athletics have been put in charge of an experienced
athlete and successful coach, Mr. Chester L. Brewer, who comes to us from Janesville,
Mr. Brewer is a college athlete of more than ordinary skill, having established an
excellent record in track work, indoor gymnastic events, baseball, and football at the
University of Wisconsin, during the years 1894-5 and 1896-T. In -the class contests at
U. of W., Mr. Brewer won first place in the indoor events for the year 1894-5, and also
won the "all-round" medal for track events in 1896-T. His proficiency lies not in excep-
t tional work in a single line but rather in creditable work in all the standard events.
His record in pole-vaulting is 10 feet 6 inches, in the high jump 5. feet 6 inches, in
the broad jump 21 feet, in the shot put 38 feet T inches, in the hitch and kick Sl feet
and in the hundred yard dash 1033 seconds. He has also done creditable work
in the hurdles and hammer throw.
Mr. Brewer made a fine record in football on the U. of W. team in 1896-T and 1897-8. His positions were end and half-
back. His work in offense and defense was highly praised by Western experts, and has the hearty endorsement of Philip
King, ,Wisconsin's coach of recent years. Last year Mr. Brewer coached the Whitewater Normal School eleven, and his skill
gave to the team the championship of the Wisconsin Normal colleges.
In baseball Mr. Brewer's record is equally good. He has had coaching from Anson, Newman, and Broughton of league
fame, was a member of the U. of W. nine in 1896-T, and the champion Evansville team in the summer of 1897. He has played
center field-, first and second base, besides having considerable experience in the box. He is a fine batter, fielder and base-
runner. Walter Camp selected Mr. Brewer for both the "All Western" football and baseball teams for the year 1896-T.
Mr. Brewer is a firm believer in systematic physical training for all students. He places first emphasis on regulated
exercise for all, rather than special contest events for the few. He has thoroughly won the confidence and good-will of the
baseball and track men, and we prophesy for him and his work the largest measure of success.
Che Cfropbg Room,
In the central building basement is a large and pleasant room,
Which is set aside for trophies which are in athletics won-
On the gridiron, on the diamond, on the race-track, or the courts
All will find a place there, which are Classified as sports.
Now I turn the leaves of Memory to find what I shall leave,
As a trophy of my prowess and the victories I've achievedg
For I have been' a hero in many a college game,
And upon the college campus, I've acquired a lasting fame.
First to football, my old favorite, do my thoughts unbidden turn,
And I ponder o'er the trophies on the gridiron I have earned--
But after meditation, footballls trophies I decline,
For I can think of nothing, save that broken leg of mine.
Then from baseball, next in order, for some trophy fair I seek,
For the victories are many, which I on the diamond meet-
But from all the games, that I have won, while on the college nine,
No trophy is remaining save that old black eye of mine.
Then to basket-ball and relay team, I do exulting go,
Here surely are some trophies which I can proudly show,
But alas! A bitter ending to this passing hope divine
For nothing have I treasured, save that broken arm of mine.
Now to tennis, so exciting, where I won the championship,
Over all my cherished treasures does my Memlry quickly slip-
But woe to me, unhappy! This, I madly too resign, -
For here 'twas my opponent stole that summer girl of mine.
Now if all the other fellows who have won athletic fame,
Should find such gloomy trophies as are these which I can claim,
The trophy room will be a room of horrors sad and dire-
A room to which no athlete strong will evermore aspire.

protested and wiggled and squealed. "Let me change my clothes" he
begged of them "and then you can do anything with me. Come, fellows, let
me change 'em. Oh! you tickle! Let me go, please." His captors' hearts
were touched. They put him on his word not to escape and released him.
Prior was up in Hades about ten minutes-rather long just to put on
some old clothes. But finally he came down and emerged into the darkness.
The avengers seized him and put him under the hydrant. The water
sizzled and squirted and percolated. Prior took it with amazing calmness,
only giving vent to a little "tickle" now and then. At length, Pagan and
Devil desistedand, chuckling over their revenge, conducted the dripping
Prior up the stairs. Now they thrust him into the glaring light of Hades.
Devil took one glance at him and fainted. Pagan gasped and died. There
stood Prior clad in Devil's latest coat and Pagan's Sunday pants., About
his neck was Pagan's crimson tie and on his feet were Devil's patent
leathers. O ye gods!!! "Prior" said Devil, recovering consciousness.
"ain't there sumpthin' I kin do fur yez?"

A ELL HAS that one said, "There is a crisis approaching in the affairs of men, which, taken at
the tide by those sufficient unto the evil thereof, will bring to human kind the glorious dawn of
a new day." '
A On the 16th day of October, 1867, there was great tumult and rejoicing in the little city of
Albion over the marriage of a very beautiful and promising couple. This is the story handed down by
tradition. Eros, surnamcd Love, became unhappy in the state of single blessedness and tho't he would take
unto himself a wife. I-Ie had heard of one Sophia who was noted for her skill, cleverness and wisdom.
Often being told that he was beautiful he tho't he could persuade and charm her by his graces and loveliness
so he Went to her with these words: "My dear Sophia, into thy presence I walk on hallowed ground.
I have tholt of thee by day and dreamed of thee by night. Thy talents of skill and thy wondrous wisdom
have been a source of great inspiration to me and I come boldly and kneel before thy sacred shrine to ask
admittance. My plea is this: 'After due deliberation I have become convinced that a single life is a selfish
one and that it does not live up to the highest standard of culture and refinement. VVith thy ability and beauty
combined we can build up a house where lovers of Wisdom will be wont to make their abiding place."
To which Sophia replied: "Wisdoin considers all things ll Eros went back home heavy hearted but in a
few days was summoned into the presence of Sophia. "Dear Eros, after due consideration I will promise thee
to take up my abode with thee at the time that thou shalt set."
At the appointed time the bell tolled merrily and in the midst of a great company of friends the happy
couple were led to the altar. After the beautiful but solemn ceremony came the many congratulations. A few
days later it was announced that this same couple would be "at home" to all Erosophians after October 16, 'till
Eros never forgot his pledge to Sophia and no newcomer ever visits Albion without going to this beautiful
literary home. It has won a world-wide fame and many hasten hither looking for the fountain of knowledge
where none are disappointed but anxious to tell the good news of their great fortune and discovery.
Could not Eros and Sophia, after having lived together peacefully for thirty-two years, testify truthfully
that marriage is not a failure?

Pif:Is1s'i'kA'rUs.-sl will relate his story. When Menelaus and his fellow Achreans were returning after the fall of ill-fated Ilion,
they stopped in Lesbos. Now it happened that a Phoenician merchant was sojourning there. Menelaus, knowing the
experience of the Phoenician sailors, consulted him concerning the safest voyage home. Together they went aboard
the merchant's galley in the harbor. There Menelaus saw an oarsman of surpassing stature but so thin withal
that his skin did cleave unto his bones. The Phoenician, while cruising far beyond the Pillars of Herakles in quest
of tin, had stolen him from his native isle and borne him over the waves, around the wooded shores and far away
to Lesbos. His name was Patrick O'Reiley. But little had the theft profited the Phoeniciang for Patrick had ever
moaned for his sweet Ondaleen whom he had left weeping on the shore a thousand leagues across the purple sea,
and his tears had ever trickled down his oar and he had pined away. So the merchant was' ready to sell his oars-
man for a few drachmas and Menelaus purchased him and brought him to hill-pent Lacedzemon. Here he fed him
well with pork and beans, such as scepter-bearing kings are wont to eat, 'til Pat' grew fat and comely.
T1cL1f:MACH0s.--But tell me, and tell me truly, does he think no more of his Ondaleen a. thousand leagues across the purple
13lCISIS'l'RATUS.-All no, nor yet would you, Telemachos, were you in Patrick's place. No sooner had he grown august in form
than all the goddesses of the Olympian court did hover 'round him like the flies around the bung of a molasses
barrel in Autumn time. Yon sporty dude who wears the red cravat, is golden Aphrodite in disguise. Each morn,
she binds beneath her feet the ambrosial and golden sandals and darts down from the Olympian crests to the
streets and ways of Sparta, just for Patrick's sake. She is in love with him. Had I one-half'the "pull" O'Reiley
has within the heavenly court of mighty Zeus, I would no longer play the second fiddle in old Nestor's house. Ah,
little Patrick thinks of his Ondaleen, a thousand leagues across the purple sea.

In 1895 several young men sworn to celibacy decided to organize a literary society. Although there
were two literary societies in existence it was felt that the particular line of work contemplated was not
N . I
fully covered by them.
The organization had two ends in view, to develop power of ready speaking and to gain a knowledge
of parliamentary procedure. One of the principal features of every program is a debate upon some live
questiong each speaker is expected to give his personal views. Thereby greater interest and better work
are secured. For parliamentary practice, the society is, this year, organized under the rules of the United
States Senate. It is here that the silver tongued Senator from Colorado, Mr. Curtis, holds the galleries
The society has been successful from the first, it has fully met the expectations of its founders
and promoters. We have recently acquired a permanent home in the Central Building, and now consider
ourselves as iirmly established as the College itself.
Among our members we number poets, orators, philosophers, theologians, jurists and statesmen.
Perry has within his soul the burning fire of the poet and the profundity and obscurity of his productions
show that he has absorbed largely from Browning. "Miken Moyer, the Irish wit and philosopher, has
established his claim to statesmanship by his recent proposition to change the Y in New York to C and
make it New Cork.
The Athenaeum is here to stay, its beacon light will show the way for Nations yet unborn. It
has stamped itself indelibly upon its age. Its influence reaches from the stand pipe on the north to
Dutch town on the south, from Newburgh on tl1e east to Spectacle Lake on the west. The reader who
may doubt this may consult E. M. Moore, the man who owns, controlls, and operates the only full set of
whiskers in the college.

T WAS at the annual contest of the Western Collegiate Oratorical League held in Chicago. The great hall was
crowded from pit to dome. The 'gay college delegations were disposed here and there in the galleries. Pandemonium
reared its head and cracked its tail. The contestants were on the stage. There was "Billy" Jamison of Albion.
Only his own delegation knew what "Billy" could do. The crowd felt instinctively that he was lost. He was long, hatchet-
faced and ungainly.
The contest began. Kendricks of Knox led off. He was eloquent. His oration was polished until every little figure
flashed with light. The audience went wild. Beloit, Wabash, Albion, Iowa followed. The popular favor was still with Knox.
The betting was ten to one on Kendricks against the field. "Billy" .Tamison's oration was rugged and original but he failed to
win the popular ear. The judges retired. All the delegations except Knox were in that condition where they felt that
everything was lost and were surprised to think that the world still wobbled around the sun. Things were not much
changed. They had now experienced the consciousness of defeat and found it not so bad. The faint hope they had at
this point was pure gain. They couldn't lose much and some happy chance might bring them an opportunity to whoop and
yell. They awaited the decision in pleasurable expectancy. . ,

In a little town in Michigan, "Billy's" mother lived. U She was not a woman of great independenceg she was clinging and
affectionate. She never had had much to hope for for herself, her life had been lowly-when young, she had been a
domestic. She had hoped for and with her son. When he was a child, they had lived in the country and she had hoped
that he might become a district school teacher, her highest conception of successg but when he had attained to that and
looked forward to the professions, her hopes had followed him and now when his aspirations smote the stars, her life was
assimilated into his and she was drawn upward far beyond her own possibilities. Now she comprehended ambitions that in
her early womanhood had been beyond her conception.
That night she was restless. Oh, how she longed for "Billy's" success! She knew that the contest was to occur at
eight. He came fourth. Even now he might be speaking. She got out her album and 'looked at his pictures all the way
up from babyhood. At 9:30 she felt that the whole matter was over. She dared not hope. She became almost reconciled
to failure. But now, she thought, he might be riding in triumph on the shoulders of his friends. Her eyes glistened
for a momentjbut that was too great happiness for her. It couldn't be. The clock struck ten. She couldn't retire.. She
tried to read but couldn't concentrate her thought. It was now 10:45. She heard a step on the walk. Next instant there
was a knock at the door. With a beating heart, she responded. A telegram was handed to her. Her mind ran over all
the possibilities. Was it anything else? Was anyone sick? Was anyone dead? She tore it open. "I have won! Billy"
lay before her. Two bright tears glistened in her eyes. Then she went and wept over the picture of his babyhood.

But what did Billy do? After the pow-wow and congratulations of his friends and the sending of the telegram, he
retired to his room. There he hugged himself, and keeled all over the floor and nestled like a kitten. Finally he stripped
off every garment, stood before the mirror and beheld a genius disrobed.

L'?I-IIS SOCIETY dates .its origin, Nov. 13, 1897. The object of its organization was to provide literary
H advantages for'the preparatory students. Attempts had been previously made to meet this long-felt
' want, but with only temporary success. A new attempt did not meet with universal approval. A
petition was made to the powers that be, but the omens were not auspicious. A voice was heard saying:
'tlt is good for man to be alone." Most unkindest cut of all! The ladies were excluded.
No permanent place of abode was secured. How appropriate were our meeting places! The first
was in the lower story of the old Central Building, where' many a doubtful undertaking has been begun,
and out of which has Comg from time to time the victory of endeavor, the triumph of achievement. But
this would not long suffice a restless, growing society. The second was in the topmost story of the finest
building on the campus. How high our aspirations had flown! How we elevated our thoughts before
submitting them to others! This was quite natural for a society just coming into consciousness of its power,
and seeking a 'suitable place from which to take a flight' into unexplored oratory, expecting by exercising
its eager wings easily to soar upward into the heights of eloquence. But we had to come down. Another
move, andthe basement held our lofty thoughts and ambitions. This signified that we were on a firm founda-
tion for solid work. Upon this basis we have builded and not in vain.
The fall term of '98 marks another change. The society saw that the young ladies of the preparatory
department were debarred from literary advantages, and its great heart was moved in compassion. After due
consideration a petition was made that the clause restricting membership might be stricken from our consti-
tution. It was granted. A new era dawned. New interest was aroused and the membership rapidly increased.
By the infusion of new life the programs have attained a higher degree of excellence and vie with those of
the older societies in interest and instruction.
The brilliant light of past achievement thrown into the haze of the future plainly reveals bright and
glorious prospects for the Philomatheans. May this organization, which forms but one small star in the great
constellation of society, borrowing its brilliance from none, lend its lustre to many of its higher and more
pretentious neighbors. W. C. R.

HIC Uratorical Association of Albion College is a member of
the Michigan Oratorical League. It was organized in
December, 1897, with Mr. Frank Cottrell as its first
President. Mr. Cottrell was succeeded in the spring term by Mr.
H. F. Jacobs. lvleanwhile the constitution had been amended so as
to include all students of the college in its membership and to
provide for the election of its officers by the incoming Senior class
at the close of each spring term.
This Association has done much in promoting oratorical
contests among the students. Recognizing the great need of more
students trained in public speaking, to go into the world to become its
leaders in thought and action, it endeavors to supply it by fostering
a spirit which will develop in its members greater efficiency in
thought and expression. The Association has a very large as well as
legitimate field and should be given encouragement and support. FRANK COTTRELL.
During the year and a half of its existence, it has accomplished
much. In the state contest at Hillsdale, Albion's representative, Miss Alice Joy, proudly and gloriously won
over six competitors. When the news of her victory reached Albion there was Joy in our hearts and the air was
rent with the sounds of our jollification. That same year, Simmons, McGee and Jacobs won over Ypsilanti in a
debate and again Albion's praises were on everybody's lips. Every oratorical contest that we entered we won.
This year, while victory in the debate with Ypsilanti was not given to us, we have every reason to congratu-
late ourselves upon the orators and gentlemen we matched against our opponents. In the local oratorical contest to
decide who should represent Albion in the coming State contest, Mr. Cottrell won the first place. Mr. Cottrell has
a fine eration, an easy and forceful manner of speaking and we are all sure that he will aquit himself creditably
to himself and his Alma Mater. We have the- highest expectation of his triumph at Hope and sincerely hope
for his triumph. MON'l'. W. RIPLEY.

Jim Benson came to college in the year 'l892. He passed for
a good fellow. He was a man of whom people said, "He will
reach the presidency some day." He was square-jawed, high-
browed, statcsmanlike in appearance, but he lacked intuition. He
was a "bohner."
During his second year, he was to be found a great deal of the
time at a ce1'tain residence not more than a thousand yards from
the McMillan Laboratory. It was well known that Susie Le Vant
was the attraction. Ut isiall right to mention this, they are out in
the wide world now and they are not so great as they expected to
be-they are "tickled" to be mentioned anywhere.J As a result of
his courtship, Jim got an invitation to spend a few days in Sagi-
naw during the summer of 1894. Susie's home was in that city.
So one July afternoon he landed there. Susie met him at the
depot and took him to her home. Then followed the introductions
to Mrs. Le Vant and Miss Knowlton, a maiden aunt. At supper
Jim met Mr. Le Vant. He was a taciturn man of business and
While Mrs. Le Vant and her daughter were engaged in their
after-supper duties, Jim was left with Miss Knowlton. As Susie
flitted in and out of the room, he noticed that she regarded them
with troubled looks. Good! Susie was jealous of her aunt.
That was capital. He set out to have some fun. He cracked
jokes and Miss Knowlton laughed at them, not appreciatively it
is true, but then-she laughed. He noticed that she glanced
furtively after her younger rival as she went in and out of the
Soon Susie and her mother became engaged in another part
of the house. As soon as she felt assured that they would not
return immediately, Miss Knowlton made an abrupt change in
the conversation. "Miz Bensonl' she said "you have come to a
sad house." Jim kept quiet. "I can stand it" she went on, "but
poor little Susief' t'What is it?" asked Jim, feeling that interest
on his part was justifiable now. "Miz Le Vant is a cruel man,"
she replied, "nearly every day, he beats Susie until her cries can
be heard for blocks around." "What!" exclaimed Jim, feeling
that he ought to manifest positive interest now." "Does no one
interfere?" "Ah," she continued "No one dares to. If Mr.
Le Vant knew that you were visiting Susie, he would kill you."
Then Susie returned and the conversation necessarily changed.
Jim didn't know what to do. Somehow he felt restrained
from speaking to the young lady about the matter. So the thing
drifted. When he was shown to his room that night he remem-
bered Miss Knowlton's warning and hunted everywhere for a key
to the door but failed to find one. Then he placed a chair against
it and thinking that the barrier was not strong enough yet, he
pulled a dresser up against it. Then he hunted the room for
hidden entrances but none appeared. During the night he
revolved many things in his head and when the rosy-fingered
daughter of the Dawn arose, he had not slept very much.
When Jim went down to breakfast next morning, Mr. Le
Vant had already gone to his place of business. After' partaking
of the repast, our student friend sought the companionship of
Knowlton. "What plan can you suggest" he asked, "to
relieve the condition of affairs which you dwelt upon last evening?'l
Miss Knowlton seemed dazed, and Jim had to explain that he had
reference to Susie's case. "There is but one way. Take her
away to some far land, away from her pursuer." Jim bethought
him of a house his father owned in Owosso. Yes, that would do.
Let college go to the deuce. "But, Miss Knowlton." said he,
Hhow can I approach Susie upon this subject?" "Don't say a
word to herg don't say a word to her," she said, and looked toward
the door as if the rest of the household were her enemies. "Why?
Is she so sensitive?'f asked'Jim. "Yes," she said and co11tinued
to look strangely toward the door. "Well, what shall I do? just
carry her off?" he asked. She looked up at him quickly and said:
"She has been waiting for you these twenty years." Then she
chuckled to herself and Jim took it for a joke. Miss Knowlton
continued "Just take her away." "But when?" he asked. "To-
night," his adviser returned. "Meet me at twelve o'clock by the
postern gate." Jim asked where that was and she pointed to an
old gate beside the barn. Why it should bear so pretentious a
name was a mystery.
Just then Susie came in and the rest of the day was spent in
her society. He tried in every way to look the sympathy he felt.
Surely Miss Knowlton must have arranged with her. She must
know what was in his mind. Once or twice he thought he caught
an inquiring look from her. Of course she knew all. Mr. Le
Vant was out of town all day, so little was seen of him.
That night Jim retired early. He was excited. He packed
his grip and then lay down on the bed to wait for the appointed
hour. The clock struck nine, ten, eleven. Only one hour
remained before the attempt was to be made. Every five minutes
now he arose and struck a light to look at his watch. Finally it
got to be ive minutes to twelve. He took his grip in one hand
and his shoes in the other and stole down the stairs in his
stockings. Things seemed strange and unwonted. He felt like
athief, but his duty was clear. The door creaked as he went
out. The moon was shining brightly. He darted behind a lilac
bush and put on his shoes. Then he made his way stealthily
around the house and toward the "postern gate." There was
Knowlton standing in the shadow. "Ah, I see that you are
tfllef' she said. "The light is burning in her window." '
Under the direction of his guide, Jim got a ladder out of
the carriage house and together they made their Way around to
the west side of the dwelling. By accident the end of the ladder
whacked against the corner of the building. They stood and
listened but nothing came of it. This side of the house was in
deep. Shild0W. Surely enough, there was the light in Susie's
window. Could he ever fail her? Never. He planted the ladder
with somewhat of a racket and slowly ascended. He wondered
if she were awake, but was not long left in doubt. Just as he
reached the top rung, she screamed out on the night air: "Oh!
Papa! Uncle John! Come quick! Get down, you wretch! Oh,
if Jim were only herein "Pm here." Jim said tilnidly. "Is
'that you, Jim?" she asked, "How could you disgrace me so?"
"But your light was burning,"he remonstrated. "Why, I always
have a light. What about it, anyway?" "Your Aunt Liz-
MiSSKU0W11l011 Said--" "Oh, why didn't I tell you!" Susie
broke in. "But I was so ,shamed of it. Aunt Lizzie has been
crazy for ten years. Oh, get down and go away! Get down and

HILE we feel proud of our modern buildings, and show
them to visitors with delight, we love to call up the tra-
ditions of the college and we never lose interest in the
classic halls of the oldest structure on the campus. On account
of its age, and mysteries, and memories, we venerate above all
the rest, the renowned "Central Building." A mere mention
of the time-honored pile will awaken within the hearts of old
students the tenderest feelings, and bring to them once more
in a vivid manner, welcome thoughts of happy days in "Old
Its name was given it years ago because it was the centre
of college life, and is appropriate even nowg for it contains the
president's office, the library, the co-operative store, the Pleiad
room, and the recitation rooms of the college department.
It is built of oak, and brick, and stone. Storms, hurricanes
and earth-quakes have shaken buildings to pieces, have swept
awav whole cities, and have leveled mountains, but our classic
monument stands. It is immortal. The Babcock iire-extin-
guisher, once kept in the basement, is no longer thought
The time of the building is not certain. We find the name
'fAdam " inscribed on it, but we are not certain that it was " the
first man " who carved his name on a seat in the Greek recitation
room. QAlthough it may have been a part of the curse that
Adam should study Greek.j We find engraved upon the seats
and walls, the names of orators, heroes and statesmen. The
names appear to have been carved into the oak at an early day
with a sharp instrument of steel.
Years ago the building was in part a dormitory, and a
rule was in vogue which forbade our grandfathers from calling
to visit with our grandmothers. Grandma tells with tears in
her eyes how she sat, often, alone, at night in her little room
in the "Central Building" and wished that she could see
grandpa. While grandpa tells with a smile, how he used to
pace up and down his little den at night fall and sing-
"'l'here'll be no faculty there."
Two of our grandfathers tell how they went one evening
by stealth to a small room where two of our grandmothers
were waiting for them. All anticipated a pleasant visit. But a
Nemesis pursued them in the person of the president of the
college, who had learned in some unaccountable way that our
grandsires had gone calling. As he was of a venturesome nature,
the doctor went in quest of them. When he came to the little
room he knocked on the door. All within was quiet. Our grand-
mothers with all their dignity, refused absolutely to open the door.
President Jocelyn, whose picture hangs in the chapel, knocked
until the walls fairly shook. But our grandmothers had nerve.
They stood still. The president, condrmed in his belief that
someone was out of place, after getting tired of knocking and
asking admittance, began to force the door. At this alarming
turn of affairs, our grandfathers both crawled under the bed.
Our grandmothers burst into tears, and president Jocelyn pushed
the door down. In the search that was made, four feet were found
sticking out from underthe bed. Our grandfathers were expelled
from college and they are now old, old men.
We feel an added awe for the building as we contemplate these
chronicles. It has been for generations the centre of college life.
Let us cherish its traditions. We shall not much longer tread its
halls. We are soon to enter life's tug of war, but in dreams we
shall often revisit the building from which the flag floats, the
building that is immortal, the "Qld Central."

COLLEGE Y. M. C. A. CABINET
x if ,m.c.a.
N THE early part of June, 1844, George Williams, a London dry goods clerk, gathered eleven of his
ii companions in a small upper room in the establishment for prayer and Christian fellowship. Soon
a society was formed to do spiritual work among the clerks of the Metropolis. From this humble
beginning grew the world-wide movement of the Young Men's Christian Association, which now numbers
over tive thousand associations in forty different countries and has enrolled over a million young men.
The Albion College Young Men's Christian Association is organized that the young men of this
institution may live after the model of the Perfect Young Man who "was tempted in all points like as
they are, yet without sin," and that, along with the intellectual supremacy they gain, they may also "grow
in the grace and knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
To this end, weekly meetings are held in the E. and A. Hall where the young men meet to think of
things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report and to alford and receive mutual help and
sympathy, monthly missionary meetings are heldg devotional Bible classes are conducted by men who have
been especially trained at a Summer School held at Lake Geneva, Wis., every Juneg a special work for new
students is carried on at the beginning of each term whereby those coming to the institution for the first
time are made to feel that they are welcome, Sunday Schools are organized in neighboring localities where
there is need for such, and finally there is a constant effort to lead their fellow-students into the "more
excellent way"-the way of Life.
Such, in brief, is the work. For the results, look at lives of the many men who are now being helped
and strengthened, look at the lives of the men who have gone out from its numbers to be powers for the
Right, and then remember that "His way is past finding out" but some day we shall "awake in His
likeness" and see and know all that is now hidden.

S A YOUNG LADY who is to become a student enters Albion, and takes from
the car platform her first view of the new surroundings, her eye falls first,-
unless it be upon the ever present band of club stewards-upon a small group
of young ladies wearing bright badges of pink and green, and as she looks a little
closer she discerns the letters HY. W. C. A." E
The group is evidently discussing,-though unknown to her,-whether or
not she is really, or might even possibly be, a new student. However, by the time
she has stepped upon the ground the question has been decided, and the one of
the group possessing the greatest amount of courage stands at her side ready to
help her in whatever way possible. If her arrangements have not been previously
conducted by the merry band of college girls, to a pleasantly furnished room in the Central Building, Where a
city and a descriptive list of all rooms for rent, as well as another group of girls await her. When she has met
each girl, and a friendly conversation has made her feel somewhat acquainted with her newly-made friends, she is shown the
conveniences mentioned and allowed to select her rooms at will, and when the selection has been made she is assisted in finding the
place and making the final arrangements. This is her first acquaintance with the Young Woman's Christian Association, and
she is impressed from the very first that she is to find some warm friends in Albion College, and it will not be so lonely after all.
Probably the first invitation she receives,-swhichever term she may enter college,-is to attend the general reception
given by the two Christian Associations at the beginning of each term. Here she permitted' to meet--but not remember-
perhaps two-thirds of the student body, and she more thoroughly convinced that the Christian Association is really interested
in her and intends to put forth every effort possible for her enjoyment while in college. t
A Yet this is not the only nor indeed the highest aim of the Young VVoman's Christian Association. Though it reaches
out in all lines, ever aiming to be helpful, and giving due attention to the social side of college life, its one great aim, its ultimate
end is the strictly Christian work. Through its efforts a native Bible reader in far-off India is supported each year, and
because of its assistance one more little orphan girl in our own country is given a comfortable and Christian home.
Among the advantages which a student finds in Albion College, not the least is the opportunity of joining one of
the several bible classes which are under the direction of careful and competent teachers. These leaders are members of
the association who havelbeen its representatives at the great national conference at Geneva, and there received instruction
from some of the most thorough and capable bible students in the world.
Yet that part of the association work which touches the life of each girl most, and about which the tenderest
memories cling, is the Sunday afternoon devotional service. It is here the girls are drawn nearest each otherg here that
many a girl receives inspiration, not only for each succeeding week, but for her whole life,-an inspiration which leads her
toward the noblest womanhood, and the highest plains of Christian life.
THE VOLUNTEER BAND
GTRQ Xgyoiiliqleee a SQOe
JOHN I. MARTIN.
INCE the last annual was published, the work of the Volunteer Band has steadily increased in intensity and scope.
Three of our number since that time have found their places on foreign soil,-Mr. and Brooks, in Corea, and
Miss Harriett Boss, in India. V '
This year under the efficient leadership of Miss Matie B. McKinley, we have realized great good. The quiet and
almost unseen work of the Literature Committee has yielded its increase, and has multiplied missionary thoughts a hundredfold.
The Recruit Committee has performed its duties faithfully, while the conservatism of our examining committee has more than
once afforded us healthful restraint. The spirit of patience with which our Correspondence Committee has clone its work is to
be considered in our success, as also must the work of the Committee on Devotionals.
One of our number, Miss M. Louise Reeder, was obliged to leave us this year through failure of health. For four years
she worked among us and by her strong christian character did much to deepen and enrich the spiritual life of her fellow-
volunteers. Next year Miss Matie McKinley and Miss Rowley will probably sail for foreign shores. McKinley will
go to India, and Miss Rowley to China. That the kingdom of Christ will be extended among far awaypeoples through their
lives, no one questions, so fixed are their hearts, trusting in the Lord.
The song "Blest be the tie that binds" seems to possess a deeper meaning when used in our band-meetings. Ah,
those devotional hours, their influence how far-reaching! They are sources of inspiration and courage to us here and now,
it is true, but who can tell what comfort and joy their memory will produce for us when, if permitted, we are laboring amid
discouragements of missionary life. Often their remembrance will lead those who go out from our band when toiling in "a
dry and thirsty land where no water is," to the Rock that is higher than they, and out of that Rock shall come living
water for thirsty souls. Blessed Band-meeting Hour! A book of remembrance shall be kept of thee!

. HIL didn't usually come up-stairs that way.
He was ordinarily a deliberate fellow and
H an hour of brisk football generally sufllced
f to tone down his animal spirits for a while. But
' this time he flew up the stairs like a cyclone out
for a pleasure trip, and almost came in through
' f the door without opening it.
"Where's the fire?" I queried as he jerked
his striped sweater off over his curly head.
"Bother the tire" was my roommate's response.
"My Lit paper's due to-mor1'ow morning. Haven't
done a stroke on it. Goggles will soak me sure if
I don't have it ready. The old codiish knows I'm
1 trying to make the 'varsity this spring and shows
his athletic spirit by making things as hard for me
as he can. I see my finish if I'm not able to trot
out that paper to-morrow morning."
" What's your subject?" I enquired. " Well-er-oh yese-Origin
ofthe Novel." I was silent for a moment, trying to remember
where I had lately seen an article on that identical subject. Soon
it all came back to me. "Down in the city library" I told my
anxious chum, "I saw an article in Scribbler's Magazine on that
very theme. Perhaps you can get some pointers from it. I don't
believe it's very recent, but that won't matter." I'm afraid he
didn't catch the last sentence, for long before I had finished my
suggestion he had pulled his sweater on again, seized his golf cap
and shot out of the door as suddenly as he had come in from the
gridiron. "Where now, Phil" I yelled from the porch. "See a
feller, down town. Five o'clock sharp" he shouted back over his
' it fl
shoulder. I had a faint suspicion that the "feller" would be found
somewhere in the vicinity of the city library, though I failed to
see why Phil should try to disguise his effort to get help from
that magazine article. Supper time came and Phil's place was
vacant. With my customary loyalty and affection for my room-
mate I ate his strawberries and cake so that no one would cheat
him out of the emoluments which were his as a member of the
club. After supper I went back to the "den," but still no Phil.
About eight o'clock I went out to band practice and didn't return
until almost eleven. When I opened the door I saw the lamp
smoking like a campaign torch, and Phil, all unmindful of the
black soot which was settling down on himself and everything in
the room, was writing furiously at a table covered inches deep
with scribbled sheets of paper. "There!" he exclaimed with a
sigh of relief, just as I was closing the door, and incidentally
composing an invective with the smoking lamp as my theme,
"that's the last page, and if Goggles doesn't like it he'll have to
lump it. Let's turn in." We did, and slept as only a couple of
tired students can sleep.
P01 Fil :ff DF Pk 274 Dk if
Sometime afterward I learned the rest of the story. It came
out. So did Phil-that is he went out.
I suppose they broke the news to me gently because I was
Phil's roommate. Anyway this was the way of it: When Phil's
class came together the next morning old "Goggles" hemmed and
hawed awhile as usual and tapped on his desk with his pencil to
obtain order. After the roll call he referred to his old red book
and said, "Let me see, Mr. Arnold has his paper on the 'Origin
of the Novel' this morning. Mr. Arnold!"
Phil arose and began his paper. His line voice and confident
tone augmented the power of the well rounded sentences and the
class listened with the closest attention and an expression of
unfeigned admiration. At the first sentence the spectacled
professor turned his gaze sharply on Phil and then, after a
moment of careful scrutiny, faced the window opposite and with
stolid indifference kept his eyes in the same direction until the
paper was tinished. Alas, roommate mine, you and I had no
monopoly on that article in Scribbler's Monthly. As Phil sat
down an unheard of thing happened. The class almost involun-
tarily was swept with a ripple of applause, which soon became
loud enough to be heard in adjoining recitation rooms.
The old professor took off his glasses, wiped them and put
them carefully in his spectacle case. Then quietly, but sternly,
he turned to Phil and said, "Very well read, Mr. Arnold. IfI
had had your powers of oracular expression when in college, the
paper you just read would have made a better impression on my
hearers than it did. But the article is not as valuable as it was
ten years ago when I sent it to Scribbler's Magazine, after reading
it in class. Views on this subject have changed considerably
since I wrote the article, but it is of some value as showing the
opinions then existing. The sad thing for you, Mr. Arnold, is
that the publishers omitted my name when the paper was
published. The class is excused." '
if is vt :ic wk 4. Pk ik
I liked Phil. We never scrapped and it would take a term to
tell about the good times we had together. Then, too, Phil had a
sister, but that, as friend Kipling says 'tis another story." I
suppose the faculty thought that such enterprise as Phil's
might find a better field for usefulness in a larger institution.
Anyway, they didn't ask him to stay hereg in fact they-well, I'm
rooming alone now. -

And our thoughts turn back unbidden
To our homes and loved ones there.

When the years have rolled above us,

VVhen our thoughts turn back to college
And the friendships we formed there
Then will sweetest, tencl'rest feelings,
As there falls a silent tear,
Cluster round thy holy altar,

It was a wild, rainy night. The wind howled and the sleet
beat against the windows. But the dreariness outside only
enhanced the brightness and cosiness of Hades. "Hamlet" sat
on the bed, "All Boy" had disposed himself on a tableg "Prior"
sat on the floor and "Devil" and "Pagan" were ranging about
the room. The cream puffs and other things were fast disappear-
ing ancl "Devil" was looking about for further amusement.
Suddenly a thought struck him and he seized a shoe and hurled it
at "Pagan's" head. It hit the mark and the latter replied right
lustily with the Indian clubs. "Devil" dodged and they smashed
into a mirror. Then there was a general "jamboree."
Up came the man of the house with a rip and a snort and
commanded silence on pain of eviction. Everybody promised to
obey and even intended to keep his word. The fellows engaged
in conversation. After a little, "Pagan" began reeling off his
pessimism. "Say, fellows" said he "wouldn't it be fun to become
buried in the masses of some great city, to throw defiance into
the teeth of conventionality and custom, and in a couple of years go
gibbering down to Erebus? "All Boy " was inclined to assent but
"Devil" arose and said, "Fellers, the gods is good, yez don't
have to go to Chicago to raise the dence. Yez can raise it right
here." Thereupon he poured a pitcher of water down "Hamlet's"
neck. The latter retaliated. Both fell to the floor with the crash
of many thunders-but hark! There were footsteps before the
door.. All were silent instantly. "Devil" darted through the
open window and stood on the kitchen roof shivering in the rain.
"Hamlet" extinguished the light and hurried under the bed.
"Prior" followed suit. "Pagan" and "All Boy" slunk into the
wardrobe and closed the door. Now there came a knock.
Ominous silence reigned. Again there came a knock. No one
moved. Who knew what was there? It might be Herakles or
Apollyon or Waldo. But now it raised a voice and said "Hey, you
fellows, save some of that grub for me." It was Bobbie's voice.
They turned on the "glim" and let him in and embraced him.
Then there was another "jamboree."
