Text from Pages 1 - 134 of the 1910 volume:

jfmnxnnti The purpose of the Tatler is to serve as a record of the school life during the school year of 1910-1911. Without the aid and assistance of our principal and teacher, it would have been impossible for the Junior Class to do this. Therefore, wilh great thanks, we, the Class of 1912, dedicate this book to our Principal, B. C. Richardson. .1m, ' Ediior in CJjief a fio d yiJaJw, ns ais-f«vts ' %4 wC W iu L v (U Us - WiiZ25iZ f?rf ££i Qr a%1 WcU w- -fc Rss s+hn 7 'J yo xtttLA uiijyt. T3u6in«.ss n Nng .r 2 U-ffarulty B. C.

S . its a Mmtherful parr On a warm school day for the want of play, A poor Junior had fallen to sleep. His spirit had gone to the realms of song. And with wonder we heard him cheep: “Oh ! the A. H. S. is a wonderful place. For the growth of a boy or girl. Enough is said that it wakes the dead. And sets them all in a whirl. “The Faculty, too, is not a hoodoo. But the best as we all can see. With their M. B. A. and a Ph. B., And an A.M., Ph. IX “Through the crumbling walls of history's halls, Oh! the sights it brings to view, While through science deep, with a mighty sweep. It deals with the old and new. “Now any old thing that the old gods bring. In centuries past or to come, 'Tis our humble guess, that the A. H. S. Can tell just how 'tis done.” Our B. C. dear, with a manner austere, Had happened along just then. “A demerit,” he said, “you report to me. Then we heard him sing the refrain. 16A sort of thrall seemed to seize us all, As we hummed the magic rhyme, When into the street the song complete. Was wafted in perfect time. The whole Bluff City took up the ditty, Till the tuneful sound overwhelms, And fairies catching the line just then. Brought them safe into other realms “Oh! the A. H. S. is a wonderful place, For the growth of a boy or girl, Enough is said that it wakes the dead. And sets them all in a whirl.” “The Faculty, too, is not a hoodoo, But the best as we all can see, With their M. B. A. and Ph. B., And an A. M., Pd. D.’’ “Through the crumbling walls of history’s halls, Oh! the sights that it brings to view, While through science deep with a mighty sweep, It deals with the old and new.” Now any old thing that the old gods bring, In centuries past or to come, 'Tis our humble guess that the A. H. S, Can tell just how ’tis done. 17The Piasa Quill Board.®lu paisa (prill Eight issues, published monthly by the students during the school year, in the interests of the Alton High School, Alton, 111.

Did we think the years would come And go so quickly by? Xo! we thought the years of toil, Would be so hard and long, That many came with heartaches, And not a thought of song. But now the year is closing, That means we ll soon be Seniors. With many a song and never a tear. We will drop the name of Juniors. And then when in the years to come, We think of days gone by, Just for a while we'll close our eyes, And dream of Alton High. C. W. D„ ’12. Miss W.: “Slower, Torrey, slower. Three times slower.” Torrey: “Does the sound get three times faster when it reaches the audience?” 20ah? JJottjjffl ffat? Scene I. (Girls’ Cloakroom). (Fourteen girls in room. Enter H. B.). H. B.: “Oh, girls, have you heard the dreadful news about some one of our boys?’’ R. R.: “Mercy, no! What news?” H. B.: “Why, someone has been accused of stealing a horse. All girls: “How perfectly dreadful!” A. P.: “Was it a black horse? H. B.: “Yes, a black horse.” A. P.: “Then it was G. S. I saw him riding one past our house last night. F. H.: “Well, whoever it was, will be found out, as B. C. is going to hold court, with twelve Seniors, six boys and six girls, to act as jury.” L. B.: “Then will the police get whoever they find guilty?” C. R.: “Of course they will, and send him to the penitentiary.” G. L.: “Why, sometimes they hang them for horse-stealing.” R. R.: “Poor G.; he was such a nice boy!” F. H.: “You girls are just as mean as you can be. You know G. didn’t do it.” E. D.: “Oh, girls! What if it should be J. S. He was absent from school yesterday.” B. M.: “Oh! I never saw such a hateful, spiteful girl as you are, E. J. S. stayed home yesterday just because I did. He said it would be so lonesome here without me.” (Signal rings, and girls pass to Assembly Room.) Scene II. Jury in box. B. C. acts as judge. B. C.: “It is my painful duty to inform you that a theft has been committed, and the evidence that we obtain to-day will be carefully weighed by the jury and the penalty fixed by them. I have tried to make clear to the students that honesty should be the greatest aim of our lives. Without it, we can expect nothing but failure and humiliation—while with it, we may look forward to happiness and success. T. McK., will you please state to the jury what you know about this theft?” T. McK.: “Truly, sir, I have been so busy in broad daylight, also in lamplight, upon my Latin (and writing to H. D.) I would 21not have known it had they stolen myself. I am dreadfully sorry that I am unable to give any information.” B. C.: “Witness excused. K. B., what do you know concerning this affair?” K. B.: “The affairs of the present have very little interest for me. In fact, sir, History interests me more. Now if you wish to know of some event of the past, I will be happy to state it to the jury. I think History will back me when I say that whenever a theft has been committed, there has been a motive for it. Now, as I know of no motive, I am afraid I can throw but little light upon the present state of affairs.” B. C.: “A. P., what do you know about this?” A. P.: “All I know is that I saw G. S. riding a black horse yesterday, but I do not know whether he stole it or not.” B. C.: “What has that to do with the case? ’Twas a pony that was stolen, not a horse.” A. P.: “Yes, sir; I think it was a pony, a black one.” W. B.: “Mr. R., may I ask what was stolen?” B. C.: “A pony; a black pony. A. P., will you please describe the pony that you saw in G. S.’s possession yesterday?” A. P.: Oh! sir; all I know is that it was black.” B. C. (holding up a book): “Did it look like this?” A. P.: “Oh, mercy, no! It had four legs.” W. B.: “I wish I knew what was stolen.” B. C.: “A pony; a black pony (holding up a book) about this size. E. G., state what you know concerning this affair.” E. G.: Oh! sir; I saw the pony inside one of the boy’s hats as I passed their cloak-room. I also saw the name, H. S., on the fly leaf.” B. C.: “In whose hat was it?” E. G.: “I think it was in one of the boy’s hats, but I'm not certain. I will show the jury the hat.” (E. G. and jury leave the room.) Jury returns after one minute’s deliberation with the following Verdict; We, the jury, after careful weighing of the evidence submitted, find that it is no crime to steal a pony from H. S. 22 Lh? iFiup Attmta” Our teachers always tell us all, With much of exhortation, That to our studies we must give Much more careful exertion. B. C. says that we must go, O terrible tribulation! But we have lots of fun tho, In the dreaded recitation. As tho our minds and feelings Were lacking in elation, We must meet with a third trial, This time, examination. But now we are free at last, Past is all our privation; And now we leave with great joy, On our longed for vacation. And now all trials have passed away, There’s naught but exultation. We begin our work and troubles. With you, dear graduation. 23Autumn. Autumn, bright and lovely. Comes o'er hill and dell. Sending Frost, her messenger, Her coming to foretell. Seeming a vision of beauty, In dress of gold and red, Stepping lightly o’er the grass, Leaving it sear and dead. Crowned with purple asters, Carrying golden-rod, Leaving a path of rustling leaves. Where'er her feet have trod. Bringing days of brightness, With skies of hazy blue, Leaving behind chrysanthemums Of many a lovely hue. Touching nuts in the treetops, By her frosty fingers, browned, Losing their hold from their cradles, They come tumbling to the ground. Bringing chilly north winds, Cosiness and cheer, Saying as she leaves us, I’ll he back next year”. 24 E. W. '12.

(Graduation Day).“(Cuytft at Bazaar ’ HE Tatler is the chance of all chances for the Juniors to talk about their own affairs. Will we ever forget the night of May 12. 1911? Xo! It is down in deep red letters on our calendar. When the orchestra began to play, our knees began to shake, but it was not so terrible when we had once come out into the limelight. We could see only a few people in the audience and forget about them soon. Who could have acted the part of “Shiny” better than Courtney? His name certainly applied well. His face 'was an excellent mirror. Any one might well envy his knowledge. For instance, his name for mud. No professor could have done better. Didn’t Frances make an ideal mother? Weren’t her actions maternal? No one could have done the high dive at his first appearance better than Hank did. Do you blame him for wanting to see Kate graduate? Didn't he look charming in the last act? Didn’t Dell act like an old maid? I know you never thought it of Dell, but she's got the old maidish actions all right. Do you blame her for getting hot—excuse me, I mean warm. We would, too, if we were sitting on some hot fudge. Wouldn't you like to have one of the darling little curls that bobbed right over her ears? You can't have them: they were fastened on. Did’t you want a piece of fudge when the college girls made it? We wanted a piece, too, but we didn’t get it. Miss Page had no sympathy at all for us. Who could have giggled more naturally thanUpha? Wasn't she an ideal little Freshman? Didn’t she treat Miss Page with respect? She certainly was the baby of the cast. Who could have looked daintier and sweeter than the other college girls? If you could have tasted some of that fudge you would have been convinced that what I say is true. My! I almost forgot the four principal characters. Didn’t Torrey make an excellent villain? Who could have given up in the last act more graciously than he? None of our other boys would have had nerve enough to rob a house, nor none could have gotten out quicker than he when he saw “Shiny’s’’ revolver. Didn’t Taylor make a charming architect? Who could have shown himself more of a man than he? Didn’t he and Kate look sweet at the very last? That brings Kate to my mind. 28Didn’t Eunice make an ideal idol for Amos and John? Didn’t “Shiny” tell the truth when he said that Kate and John made a mighty fine couple? Who could have taken all the advice given her by her numerous friends with better grace than Eunice? Didn't she look sweet in the old clothes of her grandmother? Who could have been more considerate of Wanda than she was? Wanda? Who could have shown the deceitfulness of nature better than she did? Wasn't she dear when she proposed to Amos? Did you know that we went all the way through the play without being prompted once? Wasn’t that fine? I am sure the “Anne of Old Salem cast could not have done better. Didn’t the college girls look sweet in the first of the second act? Do you blame them for eyeing Amos with curious eyes when he came in dressed for the reception? T am sure that he was the envy of all the young gentlemen in the audience. Didn’t “Shiny” look stunning in his full dress suit? Oh, the snow-ball in his button-hole! Didn’t you want to help Amos talk to Kate in the first act? lie would have appreciated your assistance. Didn't you sympathize with him when John revealed his deeds in the third act? You don't know how bad it made us college girls feel when we interrupted the sentimental little scene at the last of the fourth act, but it was in the play—we had to do it. That’s what comes of being dictated to by some one. Kate and John know we would not have done it on purpose for the world, because we know they did not want us to do it. How on earth did Miss Page keep from laughing when she came in? B. C. could not have kept his face straighten I am so sorry she ruined that fudge. She is not conscious of her guilt though, so all is well. I trust she cooled off soon. Let’s get “Shiny” and give him some of our superfluous book knowledge. It will do him no harm. Although we did not have such a large crowd as the play had last year, we were fortunate in our profits. We cleared $175.00. The appreciative nature of the audience did so much to make the play a success. It seems so good to feel that some one appreciates your efforts. 2!l3uut, Sirnlir, 3Fannj N THE evening of May 5th, the Seniors gave a very delightful entertainment. The entertainment was in three parts. From 7:30 to 9:15 there was Fun and Frolic of all discrep-tions. Madame Kelsey furnished music with her ghost-like humanophone. The Oriental Dancers, brought from the far East, gave many pretty dances and tripped the light fantastic toe very gracefully. Many of our girls had their fortunes read and went home and dreamt of the knight who was to come and carry them off. I’m not saying that some of the boys did not do the same. The moving picture show was one of the most wonderful shows in the Fun and Frolic. Three stages of woman’s dress were given. The quaint dresses that our grandmothers wore are still very sweet: then the hobble skirt worn by our mothers and the harem skirt worn by our friends. Dr. Volz, Painless Dentist, gave a demonstration of his art; Sarah Bernhardt explained to our girls why and how her hair always looked so nice. Candy and ice cream were sold throughout the evening. Part II was given in the Auditorium at 9:15. Music High School Orchestra An Operatic (Song) Garfield Primary Recitation Josephine Waldrip Rainy Daisies (Song) Garfield Primary Indian Club Drill Girls' Gymnasium Class M usic Orchestra Part III was given in the Auditorium at 9:45. It consisted of a play, ‘‘How the Vote was Won”. The hero seemed to have lots of female relatives who claimed him as their nearest male relatives. The audience sympathized with him. The poor fellow finally consents to be a factor in the suffragette cause.

We do this because we won’t get a chance to see our Seniors stand up before us in society much more, and we want to get one last good look at our society brothers and sisters.

The company was made up of four members: John Eberly, baritone; Miss M. J. Reed, reader; Miss Elizabeth Weedman, soprano: Miss Alice Cary, violinist. Each number was encored and a few were brought back the third time. The program given was exceptionally good and something no one could well afford to miss. The second number of the Course was given by Bishop Frank Bristol on December 9th. His topic for the evening was “Brains.” The subject did not sound very interesting when announced, but he made it unusually interesting. The third number of the Course was given by the Parland N’evvhall Co. on January 27th. The company consisted of the following members; J. Lincoln Newhall, first tenor and cornet; Steward A. Smith, second tenor and French horn; John F. McCarthy, first bass, violin soloist and cornet; Ralph H. Parland, second bass and trombone. This was a very select program. They were professional bell-ringers. The program given contained good humor. This was one of the best attended numbers of the Course. The fourth number of the Course was given by “The Pierces,” on March 3d. They are excellent entertainers. The program was mainly humorous. Mr. Pierce appeared at his best in the impersonation of odd characters. Mrs. Pierce was exceptionally good in the impersonation of a little girl. All their numbers were given in costumes suiting the parts. On account of the postponement of the engagement, The Pierces were put to a great expense by coming to Alton, and they gave a second program on the following evening for the benefit of the Senior Class. The Seniors worked hard all day Saturday and were favored with a fair-sized crowd. Their share of the profit was ten dollars. The fifth number of the Course was given by Ralph Parlette on April 12th. His subject was: “The University of Hard Knocks.” He prides himself in his awkwardness and makes a very comical appearance on the stage. His words are accompanied with such gestures as to make the audience laugh in spite of itself. He is the editor of Lyceumile and Talent. 33 3This course was not a financial success, but another lecture course will be given next year, which will prove to be as good as this one was. The price of a season ticket will be lowered to $1.00. The numbers on the course will be as follows: 1. Lecture by Capt. Richmond P. Hobson, the hero of the Merrimac. Capt. Hobson is an excellent speaker and has a national reputation. 2. The International Operatic Co. This company consists of four singers and a pianist. They will put on some scenes from grand opera in costume. 3. The Fischer-Shipp Co. Another company of four singers and entertainers, one of the best on the platform. 4. Walden, a magician. Everybody enjoys the harmless tricks and instructive amusement of the magician. 5. The Castle Square Entertainers. A male quartette who play on horns and do various interesting things. Such a course can not but be worth the low price of a season ticket, and it is hoped that a large number will attend. PlgBtriattfi’ forlurrs SERIES of lectures is being given by ten physicians of Alton. They are given in the High School Auditorium for the benefit of the pupils. The lectures are very interesting and helpful. The first lecture was given by Dr. Mather Pfeiffenberger, an alumnus of our High School. His subject was: “Infectious Diseases and Prevention.'1 He compared the germs of disease to an invading army. He also outlined the rest of the lectures. The second number was given by Dr. J. B. Hastings. His subject was “Tuberculosis,’’ and he especially emphasized the care which should be taken to prevent the disease. The talk contained much valuable information which may be used very profitably by the students in the future. The third lecture was given by Dr. F. W. Jones on “Care of the Eye.” If his advice was followed by more of our pupils, they would have no trouble with their eyes. 343 firmmhrr, 3 Slrmrmhrr I remember, T remember, Tbe day vve entered High. The way those Seniors gazed at us, It almost made us cry. The teachers spoke real kindly, We felt like children small, But after a month or two, We feared no one at all. I remember, 1 remember, When as Sophomores we stood. How we studied hard our lessons, And thought we were so good. Our report cards showed quite plainly, Too much talking we had done, And for a short time thereafter, We dispensed with all our fun. I remember, I remember, The fall of nineteen ten. When we came back the third year. To work our brains again. When our Tatler Board was chosen, About the quarrels that day, When the cast was all selected, And when we gave our play. I remember, I remember, All these things to us so dear, And hope that just as pleasant Will be our Senior year.What ISiapjnnu'h at 3Jmtun $Ilai| ffirhrarsal HINY” blushed when “Kate” asked him if he loved her. Of course he said he loved her. He couldn’t help that. But what made him blush? He had a touch of the trouble that he accused “Miss Kate” of. “Matty’s” hair became very loose and rough looking one evening. I wonder what caused that? It looks rather suspicious. He must have become vicious. The door seemed possessed to remain open one evening. “Shiny” and “Amos” did their best to lock it. Miss Gilmore came up, said “Presto, Chango,” and locked the door. The boys found they had been turning the key the wrong way. One evening we had an audience, just a few friends, understand. Shiny said that he forgot his part when he looked at a certain one in the audience. That’s what I call strange. The fudge made at the fudge party is the best ever made. The recipe for the fudge made at “The Temple” at the first dress rehearsal. The chafing dish must be filled with clear water. We had no spoon so a stick did just as well. The stick flavored the fudge (which we didn’t get to eat) and must have tasted good. Miss Page, the severe, came in just then and spoiled our fun, and I studied so hard while she was sitting on the fudge that I really can not remember how the fudge tasted. Strange to relate I have forgotten what I studied at that time. You who have experienced the thrill of excitement when the orchestra begins to play know how we felt at the first dress rehearsal, saying nothing of what we felt afterwards. This is “Shiny’s” definition for an aeon, but Webster does not agree with him: “An aeon is a word used by educated persons to represent something dat don't mean nothing. For example: H’if ar should say an aeon is coming here to breakfast tomorrow morning h’it wouldn't mean dat any one special was coming. No!—It am used simply as a fig of speech to show de difference between what am and what would be if it wasn’t.” Although this is not leap year Wanda blushingly proposed to “Amos” at all the practices. Imagine his surprise. When the Seniors had practice the same night as ours, one certain member of our cast mysteriously disappeared. “I do hope that we didn’t drive him away.” .‘56ISjiglt S rluuil frmtt a Sauitnr s Uwwpmnt m OW good it makes me feel when I watch the boys go up the steps in the morning. They all seem so good-natured. Sometimes when I go up onto the second floor myself I see the boys still good-natured and jolly, but the girls keep pace with them now. Of course the boys couldn't let the girls get ahead of them. (They often do. though). I see various groups of two about the Assembly Room. In some places you see a group of girls with one lonesome boy. He stands up for himself for a short time, but he soon must give over to the suffragette’s rule. When signal rings, all is supposed to be quiet, but you see a book go up over the face and know that the person is thoroughly enjoying himself. hen the classes pass the teachers earnestly endeavor to keep order in the lines but very seldom succeed. They may think they do, but they don t, but what they don’t know isn't going to hurt them. At noon the boys and girls have another good time. I often wish I might have a good time with them. After school it is my painful duty to sweep the Assembly Hall. I always leave them to their fun until the signal rings. Then I come in with my brush on my shoulder and sweep all the trash’’ away. No matter how hard I sweep, some move over the danger-line and are safe. The room may be wanted for play practice. Then I get a good scolding for having the windows up. I wonder which they would rather do, be cold for a little while or suffocate on account of the dust. At any rate, they must be chilly a few minutes, if they must disturb my peace with their noise. I find many queer things on the floor, sheets of paper neatly folded and when opened disclose a very sweet salutation which may suit the one who it was intended for alright, but not me. I wish that one had it. Peanut shells lie in the Senior section. Senior boys are 37evidently something like elephants. In the Freshmen section I often find fragments of a doll or some other toy that those dear little babies bring to school to help pass the hours away. The Juniors are always very secret about their affairs. Their waste basket runs over with paper about an inch square. The boys practice base-ball with the waste-basket for the bat and a piece of paper for the ball. They are not all good pitchers. I would be afraid that they would hit me instead of the bat. Finally, it grows dark in the room and the building, so I leave my work to take it up again in the morning and enjoy another day such as I have enjoyed to-day.

It is a wonder that he doesn’t wear high-heeled shoes like Louis XIV of Prance to make him appear taller. We mustn’t say anything about his height because we all know that too much study is the cause of it. We must make allowances for these people who study so hard. It will be necessary for our president to sit so that he may be seen when his time comes. We won’t say which one has the best voice because they both make considerable noise as a rule. 39First Seriesher StaoweL Seriesl r■|Juslmtataha Eitrraru Swirtu First Semester. Second Semester.

Sie lag gemiitlich vor deni Kamin, entweder in ein Bucli, welches sie hielt, oder ins Fener schauend. Margot war ein hubsches Madchen etwas vierzehn Jahre alt. Die goldenen Ldckchen, die ihrein Besitzer so viel Miihe machten, und um die sie von vielen ihrer Freundinnen bewundert und sogar beneidet wurde, liingen in groszer Unordnung uber die Schultern. “Das Feuer macht tuicli schlafrig. Ich vvunsche, es wurde atihahen zu scheien und vielleicht konnte ich drauszen in die frische Luft gehen, uni nieine nebelichen Gedanken aufzuklaren.” Die Minuten vergingen schnell. Fine Uhr im Nebenzinimer selling langsam die Stunde und tickte dann weiter. Alles war still, Drauszen veranderte sich die Landschaft; die groszen Schneeflocken, die inimer dichter fielen, batten alles weisz bedeckt und die Baume beugten sich ihrer sclnveren Last, als der Nordwind (lurch ilire Aste sauste. Margot sah das Bucli wieder an und probierte zu lesen. Sie war gjrade aus deni Alter lieraus, wo man sich iiher die Wundertaten der Riesen und Feen freute und daruni schien ihr das Bucli, welches von Riesen erzahlte, docli zu unglaublich. ‘‘.Vein, es kann docli nicht walir gewesen sein,” daclite Margot, und unwillkurlich nuiszte sie wohl laut gedacht liaben, denn eine Stinime redete sie an. Erschrocken sah sie sich uni und erblickte dort gerade vor deni Feuer einen Zwerg; dasz es so jemand gab, liatte Margot in ihrer Weisheit etliche Minuten vorlier nie geglaubt. Sic daclite, er wiirde in Rauch vergehen und so unheinilich verschwinden, wie er gekommen war. Docli der kleine Kerl blieb stelien und schniunzelnd blinkte er Margot an. “Es ist gewiszlich walir und ich selber liab's gesehen,” sagte er. “Erzahl docli,” bat sie. als ob es selir gewohnlich ware, mit eiuem Zwerg, der wirklich Riesen gesehen, wovon die altesten Traditionen nur speckulieren, zu sprechen. ”Xa, viele Streiche liaben nieine alten Ereunde geniacht. Da es einen selir groszen Backofen, uni das Brot der Riesen zu backen, 49brauclite, batten zvvei Riesenbriider sich gemeinschaftlich einen ofen gebaut. Die beiden batten sicli verabredet, dasz am Backtag. sobald das Feuer und alles bereit sei, sollte der eine, der bei dent Backofen vvohnte, ein Zeichen geben und in Backtrog kratzen, dasz der andere heruber mit seinem Teige kontnie. Also eines Tages liort der eine Riese ein Kratzen, denkt dies sei das Zeichen, und nimmt seine Sachen hiniiber. Angekommen findet er, dasz nichts bereit sei. Der andere sagt, er babe sicli nur ein wenig die Rippen geschabt. Aber die beiden Riesenbriider zankten sich und der stiirkere nabnt einen Stein des Backofens und warf dem andern nach. Gliicklicher Weise hat er ihn nicht getroffen. Der Stein, woran die fiinf Finger des Riesen deutlich abgedruckt sind, ist noch zu selien. Margotchen hdrte dem Zwerg mit Xeugierde zu und da er sail, dasz sie gerne ntehr hdren wollte, fing er wieder an. “Eines Tages ging die Riesentochter unten im Tal spazieren, Hier sail sie einen Mann mit zwei Fferden pHiigen. Mit groszer Freude, dasz sie ein neues Spielzeug gefunden, brachte sie Mann, Pferde und Pflug in ihrer Schurze zur Mutter und fragte diese: Was sind das fur Erdwiirmchen ?” “Dieselbe Mutter war eine fleiszige Hausfrau und der Kehricht, welchen sie alle Morgen auskehrte, hat einen groszen Berg gemacht und—” der Zwerg sail sich schnell um als eine laute Stimme “Margot rief. Margot rich sich die Augen und schaute zur Tur. Dort stand der Xachbarsknabe, warm angezogen und mit lachelndem Gesicht. “Schlafmutz, ich hab den Schlitten drauszen und die Jungen maclien sclion eine Balm im Schnee.

Although they were supposed to know nothing about it, every petty clerk and office boy was wasting precious time in vain conjectures as to the thief who had succeeded in making off with the money for the policemen’s salaries. The money had been securely guarded by two special policemen, whose duty it was to watch the money night and day alternately, for it was always drawn from the bank in crisp, new bills on the Friday night preceding pay-day, and not used until four o’clock Saturday. The theft, then, had occurred between these hours. The watchmen were both above suspicion. They were old and trusted police sergeants, neither of whom could in any way have learned the combination of the safe. Several of the clerks had occasion to enter the room, but all could prove credible alibis, and so no clue to the mystery offered, until a few days after the robbery, one of the clerks who had been questioned as to his whereabouts at the time of the robbery, which was supposed to have occurred about eight o’clock while the guard was being relieved, approached the Chief and showed him a photograph, which, he said, had been given him by a stranger. It was a picture of the City Hall, taken at eight o’clock. The night guard stood on the step with his back towards the door of the room in which the safe could be seen. Kneeling in front of the safe, turned half round so that he was facing the door, was a young man who could easily be recognized as Fred Williams, a clerk whose business it was to keep a record of the police salaries. Fred was immediately put under arrest, but being a favorite in the town, soon secured bail. That night he sat up late into the small hours thinking of a way out of his dilemma. I hen he found it. Next morning he, with a clerk from Reardee’s, the largest jewelers in the town, went to the Chief. First Fred told the Chief that the photo had been taken Thursday morning. The night guard had come to him, he said, and complained of an error in his salary. Fred had taken a book from the safe, where it was kept, to look into the matter. Then he had put the book back and locked the door as 74the guard went out. At this instant the picture had been taken, and afterwards had been used to shield the guilty by throwing the blame on innocent shoulders. The Chief looked mildly incredulous and said it would have to be proved at the trial. Fred asked that the night guard be brought in. When he came he corroborated every detail, but, the Chief, with whom Fred was no favorite, said it was necessary to prove that he had not been bribed. Then Fred produced the crowning proof of his innocence. Turning to the jeweler’s clerk he said: “What did I bring you to repair? What was to be done to it, and when did I bring it? “On Thursday evening you brought me a pearl pin. It was a cluster of seven pearls—six small ones set around one large one, which was missing. You told me to replace the missing pearl. I did so and you got the pin back from me next morning as you went to work,” was the answer. “If the picture was taken before Thursday evening, the centre pearl in my tie pin will be missing. If it was taken Friday morning, the pearl will be there,” said Fred. The Chief took the picture from his desk and narrowly scrutinized it with the aid of a powerful lens. “You’re right,” he said, “the centre pearl is missing.” He then sent for the man who had brought him the picture, but he was not to be found. He had probably made his escape after hearing what had passed through the key hole, for he had been seen loitering just outside the door. F.M. The optimist fell ten stories, And from each window bar He shouted to the inmates, “All right so far!” 75dtuitenta ifanuurll Farewell ye school rooms dark and drear, The student’s destiny; Vacation time will soon be here And bring us liberty.

We’ve tried our best and laboured long To please our teachers kind. Oh! take these hooks far, far away, And bring us joy without delay; There’s not a pupil in the school But wishes for the holiday. We’ve had a year of work and pain; And in the end some fail. It causes many salty tears, But still to no avail. Now farewell school thou drearest place Of all the world to us; May the students shout thy name. Who leave to ne’er retufn.

In that school house on a hot afternoon in April, sat a very pretty young lady clad entirely in white. Her head rested on her slender white arms and she seemed to be asleep as all the rest of the world that lay beneath that scorching sun. Suddenly she raised her head and turned around to see who could be coming in at that hour, for few stir from beneath a protecting roof at two in the afternoon on such a day. Instantly her face lost the dreamy expression which it had before held and broke into a smile. ‘‘Hello, Pedro. What brings you here at this hour? Where have you been? I haven’t seen you for a whole week.” Pedro’s dark stolid countenance changed not a whit. He only pulled an envelope from somewhere about his ragged clothing and holding it toward the young lady said, “Got in Paso. It’s for you. Miss Helen.” “Why, Pedro, how did you happen to get this?” said Miss Helen. Since she had had charge of this little school and of the instruction of the dozen little Mexican boys who were sent to it every morning, very much against their wills, she had had no one to whom she could speak a word of English except Pedro, the pupil whom she liked best. For had he not beaten the whole school into submission on their first and last attempt at insubordination? And Pedro also acted as interpreter, for he understood some English, and as the vocabularies of the other boys were very limited and as Miss Helen knew not a word of Mexican, nor was she learning any since she boarded at the house of a Frenchman, his services, imperfect as they were, were invaluable. “Postoffice at ’Paso,” he answered. “Well, whatever made you think of asking if there was a letter for me?” “You said you wanted one.” “But how on earth did you get through? The Insurrectos have strong pickets between here and El Paso.” “Me crawl through. Xot stop Pedro,” he answered with a gleam of scorn in his eyes. “Well, if you can get through, I can and will. Virginia Harrison, my college chum, is going to spend six hours in El Paso, on her way 95from Japan to England, where her father is to be American Consul. She can spend only six hours in El Paso as their passage is all booked from New York for a certain day. That's what this letter says.” Pedro understood but little of what she said, but he did understand that “His American Lady” was going to try to get to El Paso. It was enough. “Can't never!” he answered vehemently. “I will. Why, Virginia is in El Paso now: will be there till eight o’clock this evening. Only two miles away, and I haven't seen her for two years. I’ll get through if all the armies of the world are between. They will let an American through. Those Insurrectos won’t dare stop an American.” Pedro wasted no more words as he saw it was useless to try to dissuade her. Miss Helen taking up her white parasol and not even putting on her hat, started out of the school house through the sage brush and scrub pines toward the north. About half a mile from the school house she was startled by a voice behind her. Turning, she saw Pedro. “Put down that white thing. Put on Pedro's mother’s black shawl and Pedro’s sombrero. No get through anyhow, but never get through in white. See you way off.” Helen obeyed without a word. On they went in silence for a mile further. Then they entered a very heavily wooded stretch, and Pedro was compelled to force a passage for Helen. In a few minutes he stopped and said, “Mexican soldiers right ahead. River only little further. Pedro got boat hid by bank.” Suddenly a voice criell out just in front of them, “Tu parese. Instinctively she stopped. There was no use being shot at. In a minute she faced a tall burly Mexican who most unceremoniously seized her arm and led her away, paying not the least attention to her protests. In a few minutes they entered a clearing in which there were a few rude huts and tents. Her captor led her to the largest, in which stood a grizzled old man who seemed to be in command. After a short conversation between her captor and the old man, she was pointed to a mat on the floor of the hut and evidently expected to be seated. But she would not sit down, and facing the man who was eyeing her curiously, she said, “What do you mean by this outrage perpetrated upon an American? Liberate me at once.” Suddenly by the blank expression on the man’s face she was awakened to the fact that he understood not a word of what she had 96said. Then for the first time she noticed that Pedro was not there. She could not remember having seen him since she had been startled by the command to halt. Then she gave up all hope of getting to El Paso that day and sitting down on the mat, began to cry. This the man must have understood for he moved out of the hut and took a seat under a palm where, though he could not see Helen, he could watch the door of the hut. What was that? Pedro’s voice most surely. “Crawl under quick!” it said. Quickly she obeyed and in another minute was running as fast as possible after Pedro through the forest. In two minutes they were on the banks of the Rio Grande. “Boat is gone,” said Pedro, after searching for a few moments; “Soldiers must have found it.” Just then they heard shouts in the direction from which they had come. Then for the first time she felt the seriousness of her situation. Till then she had regarded the whole adventure as a great lark; something of which she could boast to her friends when she saw them again. When she had started from the school house, she had imagined that it would be easy to get past the Mexican soldiers, whom she regarded with supreme disgust, and cross the river in Pedro’s little boat. But she had discovered her mistake too late. Every second her pursuers came nearer, and her American pride rebelled at being taken back to the camp of the Mexicans, by those Insurrectos, whom she despised. But one course was left. With a “Come on” to Pedro she plunged into the river and swam bravely toward the American shore. Close behind her was Pedro. She had not been the champion swimmer at Yassar for nothing, and she made good headway in spite of the current. About half way across she heard a sharp report behind her and felt a stinging pain in her right arm, but she kept on swimming although every minute the pain increased. But for the sight of the American flag floating over the camp of the United States army at El Paso, she would have given up, but now the Stars and Stripes thrilled her as they had never done before and doggedly she kept on. Then suddenly all became a blank. When she awoke she was in the most comfortable room of the Hotel El Paso. First her eyes rested on Pedro, who had not deserted her as she had thought. True, he was awkward and seemed out of place in the white room, but to Helen he could never be anything but brave Pedro. Then her eyes fell on Virginia, who answered the question that Helen asked with her eyes. “Yes, dear, I’ve missed my train, but its alright because I’m going to stay right here and take care of you. You foolish little girl, getting a bullet in your arm and swimming the river just to see me. But it’s just like you, for you never ‘look before you leap’.” Paul R.

When we entered High School everything was a change and it took us some time to get used to the system of reaching the different classes. We were met by the Seniors, Juniors and Sophomores, who at once began to show us that we were only Freshmen. However we started out bravely, even if we were not very well acquainted. Algebra and Physiology, which some of us had studied before, were taken up in a different manner, and we learned more about the body and about animal life. German and Latin, before which several of our number went down, proved to be our hardest studies. After the school work was well started, a class meeting was called and officers were elected as follows: Edgar Degenhardt, President: Washington McDonald, Vice President; Harold Hoefert, Secretary and Treasurer. Washington McDonald was elected to represent us on the Quill board. Since the beginning of the school year, nine of our members have left school, five girls and four boys. Some are going to other schools and some have gone to work. Arrangements were made for a game of basket ball between the Sophomores and Freshmen, the Sophomores being victorious by the score of 20-5. Later on, a game of base ball was played between the Sophomores and Freshmen, the Freshmen winning this time by the score of 12-7. Now that we have become more accustomed to High School, we will try to show our ambition in the literary and athletic work of the school, and last but not least, in our studies. E.

T IS a feeling of enthusiasm that makes school life a pleasure to all concerned. At a foot ball game it makes the air resound with cheers for our team. It makes the players feel that we have interest in them and makes them try their very best to carry off the victory. It makes the girls jump up and down along the side-lines and makes them care little for the loss of some hair pins and superfluous locks of hair. It makes the boys walk around rather nervously, waiting for the whistle to blow, with the determination to win. It makes us all sit up and take notice when anyone tries to run our school into the dust. It prompts our teachers to brighten our dull minds and poor memories with new ideas and thoughts. It interests everyone in the Junior play and the Tatleu. It should cause a large attendance at the games but it DOES NOT. Why is this? It is because not enough of our pupils have got it. have felt the thrill of an exciting foot ball game or any other game. They have not experienced the light-heartedness with which we see our boys come off the field victorious. No one can experience this thrill for you. The only way to feel this thrill is to go to the games and other contests yourself. You cannot make the excuse that you don’t know the yells and songs for there will be no excuse. The yells and songs are printed in black and white on the pages following. Read the songs and yells, impress them on your minds. When you have done this, school spirit will come without assistance. Take an interest in school life, Come out and root. 10SAltnu ijutfi Sduml axtft $rib (Combination Yell.) S-i-s-s----W-h-o-o-o (Cheer)------That’s what! What’s what? That’s what they all say!

JFmithall Season nf 1U1U HE Football season was opened with the defeat of Edwards-ville in a game played at Alton on September 24. With but two beginners, we carried off tbe victory with a score of 3-0. This, having aroused the boys’ enthusiasm, made us eager for the second game which was played a week later. October 1st we met Carrolton at Alton. The game was not exciting, but rather encouraging to us, as the score was 20-0. The third and hardest game of the season was played with Greenfield High School at Greenfield. It was owing to the circumstances and the loss of our full-back and not to the skill of the Greenfield players that we owe our heavy defeat, 20-0. On October 12 we played Slmrtleff College. This, too, was a hard game, most of tbe players having been disabled in the preceding game. Nevertheless we were victorious with a score of 14-0. On the 15th we went to St. Louis to play Webster Groves. The extreme heat and the loss of two of our best players were severe handicaps. We were defeated 3-9. The following week we played St. Charles at Alton. The game was an equal match, neither team displaying any remarkable plays. The score was, Alton 3, St. Charles 0. The next game was played at Bunker Hill, October 29. In the first quarter Alton scored two touchdowns, but after that Bunker Hill rallied and held us down. In the last half Bunker Hill scored two touchdowns, but failed to kick goal for one. Alton was victorious, 12-11. November 2 we played Upper Alton. Upper Alton won an easy game by playing us when the team was disorganized. We were defeated 11-0. The last game was played with Shurtleff. The Alton team played a good game but were handicapped by the weight of the other players and a few “ringers.” Alton was defeated 5-11. The season of 1910 has been successful inasmuch as we won five games. However, we are sorry to say that the season did not end as the years before, but rather to tbe contrary. Last year all expenses were paid and an old debt also, but this year tbe season ended with a very large debt. This is not the fault of the players, but is due to a lack of school spirit. We sincerely hope that greater interest will be taken in the next team so that no debt will hang on them as on us after the season. 113 8WEARERS OF THE A Football Gary, Captain, Ryrie, Connerly, Weber, Smith, Perrin, J.

The lack of the necessary funds is a great factor, inasmuch as we can have no outside games without funds. Class games are being played which are arousing a good deal of interest among the boys.

Heagler and Gary, and Degenhardt and Magee were the batteries. The game ended with a score of 8-6 in favor of Senior-Sophomores. The second game was not very exciting. Riggs pitched for the S-S and Degenhardt for the Juniors. Nine innings were played. The score was 10-5 in favor of the S-S. The third game gave the Juniors some encouragement. Riggs and Degenhardt pitched again. It was an easy victory for the Juniors, the score being 12-4. The fourth game was also a victory for the Juniors. It was a harder victory, which makes the Juniors feel more encouraged. The score was 13-12 in the Juniors’ favor. When the Tatler goes to press the classes are even. Seven games will be played in the series. 115pjpiral (Culture (Claris |HE beginning of the girls’ gymnasium class dates back some six years when the first class was organized with about forty members. Indian club drills were the attraction, and for a time the members enjoyed these exercises immensely, but after flourishing for about two years, the girls’ gymnasium class of Alton High School was a thing of the past. Early in the Fall of the present school year, another class was organized under the direction of Miss McCarthy. The class is making good progress and promises to become a fixed and enthusiastic addition to the department for Physical Culture. The members have been very faithful and have derived a great deal of benefit as well as pleasure, out of the hours for training down in the “gym.” Miss McCarthy has devoted much time to the girls and deserves a great deal of credit. She has taught them some very attractive drills with Indian clubs and has instructed them in other gymnasium work. Those in the class this year are: Helen Boals, Flora Broglie, Mildred Ford, Edna Gerbig, Alvira Haley, Grace Little, Elizabeth Martin, Rosalie O’Brien, Elizabeth Rose, Ruby Rosebery, Elva Weber, Lillian Weber, Eunice Whitney, Cora Wuerker. A most cordial invitation is extended to all the girls in the Alton High School to join this class next year, and it is hoped that the class will be much larger next year. “With faces grim, with eyes grown dim, With fingers crippled and sore, We write these lines, shut up our mines, And close the sanctum door. We’ve worked like mad to get our pad, In spite of thrusts of quills, We’ve done our best, Heaven give us rest, And cash to pay our bills.’’ 116INFIRMARY A. H. S.

Noted persons from across the sea came to this ball, which was to surpass any ever given. Duchess Dobbs and Princess Gilmore represented the royal family of England. Princesses Ferguson and Hutchinson represented “DerVaterland” and also the good old Romans who considered it such an honor to be acquainted with Caesar and Cicero. I suppose a few such people live yet. Lady Bails, Lady Wempen and Sir King represented the “Mathematics Club of America.” Lady McCarthy and Lady Naylor came from the land of the Italians; Lady McCarthy representing England also in the earlier stages, and Lady Naylor representing commercial clubs. Queen Rich came from the realms of the world which history has made famous. Lord Bird and Baron Moore represented the scientific men of the time. The party was very much enjoyed by all and as King Richardson wished them to remain as members of his court, they fill their posts of duty now. 120litB uf pjtloBBjjliy No matter how hungry a horse is, he can’t eat a bit. A good way to find a girl out is to call when she isn't in. They say “love makes the world go round;” And it may never cease. Quite true, but please remember that Money’s the axle grease. “To flunk is human; to pass divine.” “Tis better to have loved a short man than never to have loved a tall.” “Some are great, and some are not so great.” An ounce of study is worth a pound of excuses. A pun is a nuisance committed in the name of humor. Blessed be the teacher who digresses, for the information he imparts endureth. Home is naught without a mother, Church is dull without a preacher, Life is gray without a lover, And class is joy without a teacher. Women’s faults are many, But men have only two— Everything they say, and Everything they do. The ways of the wise are smooth. A pretty face often covers a multitude of poor recitations. It’s a wise Freshman who knows his own theme after it has been corrected. 121(ttiuum ! nf tlir Ultra Teacher in Physics: “Has the absolute zero been discovered yet?’’ Smart Student: “Yes sir.” Teacher: “Where? I never heard of it.” Student (sadly): “On my card.” “Why is the Chemistry Lab. like a hospital?’’ “Because there are so many operations going on all at once?” “No: because there is so much poor doctoring going on that the teacher is losing his patients. Teacher: “Do you know what becomes of foolishness?” Pupil: “Oh, they become Sophomores.” Young traveling man to Arkansas farmer: “Have you lived here all your life?” Farmer: “No, not yet.” Teacher (in 1st year German class): “Ralph, decline the expression, a beautiful maiden.” Ralph: “I can’t decline a beautiful maiden.” A certain Senior (translating Virgil): “The Trojans retreated on their backs.” She: “Is my hat on straight?” He: “No, one eye still shows.” Teacher: “What does furlough mean?” Bobby: “Furlough means donkey.” Teacher: “What makes you think that?” Bobby: “ ’Cause I saw a picture of a soldier riding a donkey, and just below it it said, ‘Going home on his furlough’.” “Translate, The tree is becoming green.” Student: “Der Bauer wird grun.” Teacher: “What is the difference between to behold and to see?” Bright Student: “The spelling.”A Nutty Hera? 'Twas a dark and stormy night. And the sun was shining bright: The young man’s lips were sealed, But he cried with all his might— ‘‘Shoot and kill me if you will, But spare, good friend, my life,” So the villain shot and killed him, But he did it with a knife. A fair young maid came down the path, Her form was bent with years, Her face was full of gladness, And her eyes were full of tears. She recognized the dying man, And cried aloud, “Who is lie?” He lifted his unconscious form, And said, “Be gosh, it’s Lizzy.” Miss H. (in l2 Ger.): “What is meant by fencing?” H. L.: “Jumping over a fence.” “The mountain labored and brought forth a mouse,” quoth the preacher. Voice from rear: “Is that why the Cats-kill mountains?” 12.5Mary had a little rat, She put it in her hair, And everywhere that Mary went It peeped out here and there. Mary had a little skirt, Tied tightly with a bow, And everywhere that Mary went, She simply couldn’t go. Mary had a little foot, She put it in a shoe, And everywhere that Mary went, The little shoe went too. Hear a little music, Have a little chat, Make a little chocolate fudge, Then go and get your hat; Say, you’ve had a jolly time, As she waves her fan. Now, isn’t that exciting sport To tempt a healthy man? I shot a sparrow in the air, It fell to earth I knew not where; But judging from this cjuail on toast, Here is my sparrow or its ghost. 124Sfe Hatoa’ (Sanwntunt program Address of Welcome, . . . . S.

When he doubles his fists. When is the best time to laugh? When the teacher does. When is it safest to have a good time? When the teacher isn't looking. A tooter who tooted the flute, Tried to teach two young tooters to toot. Said the two to the tutor, “Is it harder to toot, or To tutor two tooters to toot.’’ Flunkers, Attention! Recipe eor Flunks. Take a string of bluffs, stir in one pound of thin excuses, add a few class parties, sift in a little time for athletic enthusiasm, flavor well with moon-light bottled during evening strolls, boil well, stir before using, and served hot at the end of each term. H. S. Courtship Cake. A Reliable Recipe. A pretty girl, one sly glance, a pair of sweet brown eyes, an introduction, one call, one sofa, 4 hands well squeezed, one stroll, one moon, 4 lips well pressed after a few words are spoken, one wedding ring, and a preacher. This recipe is an experienced one. R. L. B. 126Miss Ferguson (in Latin 32): “Lelia, what does nec join?” L. B.: “The head and the body.” Lost to sight and memory, dear E’s, by most of us. The Pilgrims were our pious fathers who first landed on their knees and then on the aborigines. Wouldn’t you be astonished if— Lillian ceased to call Hermon “My Bede?” The Freshmen ceased to get lost in the corridors? Mr. King sang during morning exercises? Courtney forgot to go to play-practice when he knew Eunice would be there? Miss Rich stopped giving demerits? Certain Juniors behaved during morning services?
