In it have been recorded faithfully the happenings of a year of our college life,-of a xl year in the glorious old College among the hills. 1 u With the consciousness of the serious, as well as the lighter side of our task, we have endeavored to prove ourselves not unworthy of our mission, and if we have succeeded we are thankful. We have sought to com- pile a book of interest to alumni and undergraduates alike. We have repro- duced the events of the College year, set forth the features peculiar to Old Amherst, heralded the records of our Athletic teams, and tried to encourage the student to renewed endeavor. This much for the undergraduate. For the Alumni, let us hope that we have helped perpetuatelthe memories of col- lege days and college jollity, to a time when such memories "olden grown will all the sweeter be." If we have done this, we shall feel that our labors have not been in vain. With this end in view, many changes from previous years will be noted, which we hope may prove acceptable. And our warm- est thanks are due Professors Genung, Grosvenor, and Richardson, who so kindly assisted us in our work. Our task is done, and the result of our labors is now given to you for your kindly inspection and judgment. As editors, we are conscious of our many faults and deliciences. Peruse this book not in a spirit of criticism, but with kindness and charity, and with the loyalty due the dear old College of our choice. THE BOARD OF EDITORS. Q 7Z44fffQ?.f Professor Elijah P. Harris. ie I HE history of the Class of 1855 presents some rather re- ps kr I markable features. It is generally admitted that it was the smartest and the liveliest class that was graduated during 7 , .43 that decade. Certainly ability and class spirit can be argued from the subsequentcareer of its. members. Of the fifty-six graduates of that class almost a third responded to their country's call at the outbreak of the civil war, filling positions in the army from a private in the ranks to a Brigadier-General on the field. This proof of patriotism becomes all the more striking in view of the fact that the class was but six years out of college and thus only fairly started in the work of life. An unusually large number of the class were also destined to attain distinction in the different professions. Of these may be mentioned Bissell, the eminent missionary and Biblical scholarg Derby, who has gained foremost rank as an oculistg Farman, who, while Consul- General at Cairo, obtained for America the gift of "C1eopatra's Needle," and who also rendered distinguished service in international delibera- tionsg Fiske, brother of the famous tt Tutor Fiske" Q" Dunn Browne " J, who did noble service as Superintendent of the Freedmeng Montague, who was connected with his Alma Maier for over thirty years as Librarian and Professor of Romance Languagesg Washburn, who has had a notable career as missionary to Constantinople and later in connection with Robert College as'Professor and President. It remained for two of the class to achieve a national reputation in the domain of science. One of these was Nason, late Professor of Chemistry and Mineralogy in the Troy Polytechnic Institute, and the other was Harris, the subject of the present sketch. Elijah Paddock Harris was born in LeRoy, N. Y. There was almost nothing in the environment of his boyhood to encourage the acquirement of an educationbeyond that afforded by the common 5 l schools, and to most boys in like Circumstances a college, not to saysa university, training would have seemed wholly unattainable. But a kindly fortune brought him, while a mere lad, under the instruction and influence of a teacher of remarkable power and ability, and from that time a liberal education was the goal toward which he steadily worked. In the recent history of Amherst's graduates it would be hard to find a parallel to the difficulties and obstacles which young Harris, aided only by his indomitable will and unfaltering courage, met and conquered in his preparatory course and later in his college and university career. He fitted at Lima Seminary, N. Y., and after spending his freshman and sophomore years at Genesee College, in the same State, he removed to Amherst. His junior and senior years here witnessed the transition from the administration of President Hitchcock to that of President Stearns. His career as a college student was marked by an unswerving purpose and a loyal adherence to scholarly ideals. After spending two years in teaching he was matriculated as a student of chemistry and physics in the University of Gottingen, famous then, as now, in the department of science. Here he came under the instruction of Professor Wohler, the foremost chemist of his day, who with Rosa, Liebig, and Bunsen had been students under the famous Berzelius. Under these men the science of chemistry was taking immense strides, and new discoveries of far-reaching importance were being made. The enthusiasm of Professor Harris for scientific study received here full encouragement and stimulus with a teacher like Wohler, whose devotion to science was so great that on one occasion he spent an entire year's salary upon one experiment, the result of which was the discovery of aluminium. ' After two years' study at Gottingen, Professor Harris received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy cum laude. His inaugural dissertation was entitled 4' The Chemical Constitution and Chronological Arrange- ment of Meteoritesf' It represented unusual study and research, and continues to be one of the standard authorities on this subject. A In the preparation of this thesis, errors made by Faraday, Filhol, Leymerie, Chancel, and Montissier in meteorite analysis were discovered and 6 corrected. As a result of this special work in meteorites, Professor Harris was offered a position in the University of Vienna, which, however, he felt obliged to decline. On his return to America he was elected Professor of Chemistry and Natural History in Victoria College fnow the University of Torontoj, Coburg, C. W. He held this position for eight years, and through the modern ideas and methods introduced by him the college was completely revolutionized. After holding a similar position for one year at Beloit College he accepted, in 1868, a call to Amherst as Professor of Chemistry, where he is now in his thirtieth year of service. It is unnecessary to trace in detail the development of the depart- ment of chemistry under Professor Harris, from its meagre facilities when he took charge of it to the present complete and altogether modern Chemical Laboratory, planned and designed even to the minutest detail by him and his son, Dr. E. P. Harris, now Professor of Chemistry in the Pennsylvania Military College. Professor Harris may well be proud of this material result of his untiring energy and devotion to his department, but he may take even greater pride in the inliuence he has exerted upon hundreds of students who have come under his instruction. He has sent many to his German Alma Mater and to other universities, and it is true that in the United States more professors of chemistry have been graduated by Amherst College than by any other institution. From the very fact that he is himself a seeker after truth, a hater of shams and superficiality, and insists on rigorous mental discipline, Professor Harris has sent out into the world men of clear vision and strong purpose, who look back upon him and his relation to their college life with admiration and respect. Besides his work on "Meteorites," Professor Harris has published " Lecture Notes on General Chemistry," "Non-Metallic Chemistry," and "A Manual of Qualitative Analysis." Professor Harris married, July 26, 1860, Ellen A. Park, of Warsaw, N. Y. He has had six children, of whom four are living, three sons and one daughter. 7 1 897 September October November December 1 898 Ianuary February March April May june September October November December 1 899 January February March The THURSDAY FRIDAY THURSDAY TUESDAY THURSDAY THURSDAY TUESDAY WIEDNESDAY TUESDAY THURSDAY WEDNPISDAY TUESDAY THURSDAY SUNDAY MON DAY TUESDAY VVEDNESDAV TUESDAY THURSDAY fDay not fixedl THURSDAY - TUESDAY T11URsDAY THURSDAY WEDNESDAY E WEDNESDAY TUESDAY College Calendar is The Fall Term begins at half-past eight o'c1ock A.

The culture and character for which she exists may be taken for granted g the incidents and episodes that figure in reports are of the surface, of the things that come and go. The honored old alumnus who, not so many years ago, was aston- ished on his approach to Amherst to come through Old Hadley by train instead of stage-coach, will find in the rumble of the trolley-car, running at present only between different parts of the town, but with prospect of electric connection with Northampton not long hence, that the college town still responds as well as could be expected of a town of its size, to the touch of progress. Nor will he find the College ex- ternals lacking. The nobly located Pratt Cottage, now complete and in running order, puts the College in excellent position to give home care and nursing to her sick. The spacious field extending from the town common to the laboratory, known to the older alumni as the " Boltwood estate ", which is now under process of grading, will soon furnish a magnificent park-like approach, lawns, drives and walks, to the College from its most imposing side. Perhaps we may connect this enterprise, as thus made feasible, with the Fayerweather bequest, the money of which is being paid in after a long and arduous defence of the original will, in which, among all the colleges interested, Amherst was the first and most courageous mover. Professor Sterrett is in his place again after his year's absence in Athens. His work at the American School there was carried on stead- ily and profitably, but the excavations at Corinth, the prosecution of which had been his much-desired object in going abroad, were inter- rupted by the Cretan war. During the summer Professor Emerson attended and took active part in the international conference of geolo- gists, invited and entertained by the Czar at St. Petersburg, and while ' 2I abroad made an interesting scientific cruise in company with the ex- plorer, Nansen. just now he is correcting the iinal proofs of his great work on the geology of the river counties in Massachusetts QI-lampden, Hampshire and Franklini, which will soon be published from the gov- ernment printing office. Mr. Pierce, the Kellogg fellow, returned from his studies in Europe, has given one scholarly course of lectures, and is now engaged partly in preparing the lectures that are to come later in the year, partly in important laboratory work in psychology. The chair of Biblical History and Interpretation, vacated ayear ago by the resignation of Dr. Tuttle, has been filled by calling to that position the eminent Biblical scholar and critic, Dr. Henry Preserved Smith, who will begin his duties in january. The college pulpit will be supplied by preachers from without, as for the past year, but work of the more distinctively pastoral kind has been in part provided for by the appointment of Mr. Hubert Clark, of the Class of 1892, who, in addition to his work as Assistant in the Biological Laboratory, is Sec- retary of the Young Men's Christian Association, a post for which his experience with work of that kind eminently fits him. The usually tranquil air of the Commencement season this year was rudely agitated by the proffered resignation of Professor Morse, and a storm of petitions and remonstrances besieged the Trustees as they came to their annual meeting. By the time of the Commencement exercises, however, the announcement that the differences of view were adjusted, and that Professor Morse had consented to remain, restored the wonted atmosphere of hearty fellowship and good-will, an indica- tion, at least, of how vital are the interests of old Amherst and its teachers to the hearts of the alumni. As we go to press, the death of Professor William Seymour Tyler, at the age of 87, severs the strongest and most characteristic remain- ing link with the Amherst of the old days. Graduating in 1830, teach- ing for many years since his appointment as tutor in 1832, historian of the College, gaining for it, as for himself, an honored name in Greek scholarship, the revered Nestor of the scholarly, executive and religious interests of Amherst, his departure, while it takes with it a large and benign presence, leaves with us, in the memory of the gracious things of the past, a sweet influence and strength for the present, and courage to hold on our way for the time to come. 22 35521115151 Emigglgt Bgtre 3252,-5 nnrbrle Life, 5-till. lining in mnremnvg, Wigan laxefinvnz um as aw mursruunmnt tn mtmzugtlg 551121 Dignity nf clgmzuctrcv. 23 , .

The child was more than four years old when the battle of Waterloo was fought. The lad was almost ten when, in a rural town of Massachusetts, far from his' Pennsylvanian birthplace, the corner-stone of Amherst College was laid. It was seventy-seven years later when, in our midst, the man, crowned with learning and honors, lay down to give the glow- ing brain and the active hand their well-earned rest. With the dreams of the growing boy had mingled longings -after fame and thirst for distinction. As time went on, the spirit of the Master breathed upon the young man, and the boyish dreams were exalted and transhgured into one supreme desire to live for God, and to help and benefit the world. To his Maker and his fellow, he consecrated his all. For fifty-eight years he was a teacher in Amherst College. A student while he taught, practising what he preached, smiting the dead rock of the classic past till its sparkling waters flowed before our eyes, tireless, honest, fearless, impassioned, eloquent, inspiring, he served the cause, and honored the name and spread the renown of our Alma Jllfzler. The mighty mother rejoices in her children, and cherishes in her maternal heart the abiding memory of her dead. To him who toiled so successfully and long, with such single-mindedness and such devotion, in her service, she pays her reverent tribute of gratitude and love. EDWIN A.

Ninety-Eight! if OR the task that is set before me, a task that would tax in , greater powers than mine, I invoke the aid of the powers N that be, and the assistance of Ananias and Sapphira. ' fd May they endow me with the commanding genius of Washington, whose surname was George, for, to write an acceptable or creditable history of this class of A. D. and A. C. '98, would indeed be to bring victory out of defeat, or make a mountain of a molehill. It were idle to mention the hiatus that occurred in the place where our class picture should have beeng useless to describe our entire absence of mind and body when ,QQ wanted to do anything, whether it were to sit on college fence or have a class picture or supperg and pitiful to attempt to infuse any symptoms of life into the dry bones of our nondescript career. We did succeed in our capacity of dry-nurse to 19005 so well, in fact, that IQOO'S numbers are reduced by about one half -the only pity is that we do things by halves. Now if --, but that is another story. The trials and difficulties we have undergone, and caused others to undergo, have of course proceeded from certain well-defined causes. If you will look down the list of our class-roll you will see some of these causes labelled Bliss, Collins, Nims, Stackman, Trefethen, etc. They speak for themselves, of themselves, and by themselves. Such rocks as these would puncture any life-preserver. Besides, we lack leading spirits -aside from those that have led us to Hamp. 27 But we have done our best, though sometimes by proxy. See how we left the musical club leaderships to '99, as we did not have com- petent men Cnot even one to play the piano in gymj we naturally looked for help to those we knew would not fail us. But there is one thing we pride ourselves on, and that is Sabrina. What is Sabrina? Why, 'Sabrina is a game we play and is a good deal like playing hide-and-seek with yourself while no one looks for you. Ninety-six taught us this and it cost us 12250 just to come in the game. The game is played by three of our great men, Walker, Lennehan, and Johnston, but the ante is paid by the whole class. You see, of course, by this explanation, what a glorious game Sabrina is. But it costs money, there are lots of incidental expenses besides the 25250. We have succeeded in getting rid of this white elephant to 1900, which only goes to prove that all the fools are not dead yet. Yes, in our sad and checkered career it has required much courage and fortitude for us to hold up our heads at all in the face of such dis- astrous progress, but think what a proof of the soundness and stability of the college is shown in the fact that it has held together while we have been making our tactful, anserine way through it. And though our friends, while watching us wallow in many difficulties, have often despairingly exclaimed, "Where, oh where are the brave old Seniors," shall we not console ourselves with the hope that we may serve as a warning and awful example of how things ought not to be done, and that the story of our retrogress may set off by contrast the brighter picture of the succeeding class. And now, as a last and serious word. To you, alumni, whose ranks we are so soon to swell, to you, undergraduates, who are following in our footsteps, partaking of the same joys and sorrows that we have, to all sorts and conditions of Amherst men, we appeal, that you re- consecrate your most earnest and devoted endeavors to the continued welfare and advancement of our Alma Maier. Long may her star be bright, long may she be cherished and upheld by her loyal sons, in whom the true, the noble Amherst spirit never dies, but lives on, ever ready and eager to sound her praises and to lift her name above all others, and in so doing shout Excelsior! 28 The Senior Class .

N-i-n-e, Rah! Rah! N-i-n-e, Rah! Rah! Rah, Rah, Rah! Amherst, Ninety-Nine! T is in no spirit of self-laudation Qpardon this quotation from the Sphinxj but with a simple desire to record impor- tant events that we pen this history. Nor will we call on 1 xfp , .aff K.. . m. Clio, sacred muse, for inspiration. What need has the junior for such as she-since ever o'er his head, with outstretched wings, floats the patron saint of history, singing upon an everlasting lyre, and his face is like unto the face of Grosvie. Do you remember, ,QQ, those first days, when as shivering Fresh- men we watched the fearful storm, the struggle of the elements that foretold our future greatness? For there never was such a Freshman rain in the history of the college. First the cane-rush, and following the example of all respectable classes we lost that, though even now Farmer Howe says we would have won it if we had had more hands on the cane. We might have won the baseball series, only we were hampered by politics- New York politics in the shape of Croker, and it was no disgrace to be beaten by ,97. Oh, '98, not often are Freshmen per- mitted to walk serenely from Gym in broad daylight, assemble on the steps of the very building where some of the Sophs are reciting, and have two pictures taken by a regular Hamp photographer--nay more, to have a Sophomore present at the ceremony. Oh, '98, not often are Freshmen permitted to attend a class supper and return in the early morn to find the Sophomores still ignorantly, blissfully sleep- ing. Yes, we know you were awfully chagrined, especially after so con- tinually parading the snowy tracks at midnight. And that breakfast idea was a very happy thought to soothe your lacerated feelings. '39 ' What mattered it that your own supper was not begun till morning, while as for 1900's sunrise episode ! By the way, Wilcox, have you ever paid for Amherst's sudden sup- ply of silverware, marked "The Worthy"? And say, Damon, even those colored waiters blanched at some of your stories. But '99's Freshmen prowess pervaded all branches of college life- though it would have required but a poor class to furnish an agreeable contrast to '98, thoroughly hoofless, according to all the professors. As mere Freshmen, we beat them in light gym., equalled them on the Glee Club, excelled them on the Banjo and Mandolin clubs Qin fact this year the Seniors have relinquished all leaderships to their acknowledged superiorsj, while we were better represented on the football team than either juniors or Seniors. But enough of statistics, for even as we speak, we think of Kroker, Klark and Kanterbury, and our pride is humbled, and still others remain-for have we not Tracy the long-haired, and Rodney Wiley Roundy, who follows Rogers in the catalogue foh, that he would follow him out of it ll and Wing and Storrs? Yes, we lost our second cane-rush. Nineteen Hundred have proved themselves excellent sluggers - but, oh, children, where are you in base- ball, basket-ball and track? Where are you in football, or even in the classroom? Ninety-Nine, do you remember Brattleboro? And the deeds be- longing as much to the annals of the college as the class? That was a grand night when Abe dropped a policeman over the banister, and the Lord High Bailiff read the riot act. And in our haste we have failed to mention how we and Johnny Johnston beat the Williams Freshmen 5 how we " wowed" 1900, aided by '98, on the common-for even 1900 was an improvement on '98, and the then juniors, having no triumphs of their own to record Qsave hav- ing bought Sabrina from '96 for 532505, were fain to hit at '99 over the shoulders of the Freshmen. Hence, Freshman Mossman in the post- office scrap, hence '98's gallant aid to Eastman, when his plans mis- carried,--and oh, strange and most pathetic sight in all Amherst's history--Walker, Blatchford, Allen and Otterson, all ex-'98, partici- pating in the merry pleasures of the Freshmen at Brattleboro. v 40 I Ninety-Nine, we 've had a jolly, happy time in our three years, and no better thing happened to us in all that time than losing our Sopho- more cane-rush, when only half our class turned out. For it was that, our one disgrace, that banded us so strongly together, that aided us on the common, that sent us to Brattleboro, and taught us so nobly to retrieve ourselves, No class in college has so large a proportion of jolly good fellows, and though it may not be our fault that we excel in scholarship, considering what '98 and 1900 are, yet no class is so broad in its good-comradeship, so undivided and free from Ncliqueinessf' Fellows, there 's a year and a half more. Draw closer together, ,QQ, and march through, shoulder to shoulder, striving not so much for honors and glory, - for they are bound to come, - but for firm and last- ing friendships-and hurrah, '99, let 's go it while we 're young! 41 The Junior ' Class QE Officers Elected October 11, 1897.

Oh, that 3 we had a Caesar to sing of Nineteen-Hundred! This -- - x has always been a marked class. It did not even rain when they entered college, and thus their first record is made. They happened to win the cane-rush from ,QQ, not from any fault of their own, but because " Chumpy " Warren was kind enough to stand in the way of '99 as they charged for the cane. This great victory was cele- brated in due form by the class, and nearly every man smoked cigarettes that night in honor of their arrival at manhood. Elated by their victory they even thought that they could annihilate '99 in a fair fight. They tried this, and some of them did n't stop running until they were safely tucked in bed. After several attempts, which were thwarted by ,99, they finally got started for their class supper at Brattleboro 5 but they were not alone- 'QQ was with them. Nineteen-Hundred had as guests and defenders, that night, the Mayor and staff of Brattleboro, the sheriffs, the Estey Guards, the Fire Department, the Order of Muckers, and the kitchen help. During the supper an involuntary lesson in chemistry was learned. All returned home the next morning and voted the whole affair a tizzle, one more added to IQOOyS grand total. Basket-ball was 47 Rah! Rah! Rah! ' f T is saiduthat Caesar, in writing history, could make brave X haf ' t L ' L . A L . . their next Waterloo, and their overthrow was sudden and complete. Their Freshman year was enough to discourage their most ardent sup- porters, and Sophomore year starts out just as inauspiciously. Beaten by the Freshmen in baseball and track athletics, they can no longer hold up their heads and yell defiance. Class of Nineteen-Hundred, brace up and try to be men! Of course your many losses must have discouraged you, but cheer up, and work. Relegate Righter and Watson, the "HeavenlyTwins," to the past, choke off Brigham, and give Clark more rope. Do a little more plugging. Georgie Olds says that you are the dullest class that he ever hadg Billy Bigelow says that he ought to have flunked the whole of you, and the good "Little Doc " says that "you don't amount to a row of beans in anything." Hang right on to Prexyg he is your best friend, for not more than half of you would be here now if it were not for him. Remember that your sole boast--the cane-rush --cannot save you always. Brace up and do something, so that your future historians may have something worthy to record. 48 The Sophomore Class Officers Eleclezl Oflober 2, 1897. ALDEN H. CLARK . . . RALPH H. NEVINS .

Naughty-One! 1 ' r-4 AM very proud, because they told me to write a history of V my class. I think a boy likes to be told to write a history Jlk f of his class. I do, anyway. Our class is a nice class, but Wil , we were awfully frightened when we first got here to school. The Sophomores bullied us, and sang songs at us with bad words in them, and then while we were so scared, had a cane- rush with half of us, and beat us dreadfully. Lots of them are big boys, and we are very little. I wonder why they stood near and let us sit on the fence twenty minutes that night. They did follow us down town, and acted dreadfully, but not until those upper classmen called them names. I wrote to papa that night, asking him to take me out of school, but he didn't. Do you know, I don't see why those Sophs boast so. They beat us in that cane-rush, and then we beat them in a baseball game and in a big cider-meet, and we got four pictures taken. We have such nice teachers, too. There is one man that is hairy all over his face, and he has a voice just like our Jersey bull. I don't mind him so much, but the other teacher with the eye-glasses, who talks like that book agent papa hurt so --he frightens us all a lot. Then there is another man without any hair, and his head is shaped just like a hay- stack. I don't like him, becausefhe is immoral. I am sure he smokes. But the nicest of all is that old man with the waggly beard, that they call " Old Doc." He said we were a fine class, and he told us to throw our wash basins and things, if any Sophomore tried to come into our rooms. Mamma would like him --he told us to be good boys, and he said for us to trust in God and keep our-rooms in order. 53 There are some funny boys in our class. I don't think mamma would care to have me play with Walter Longstreth or Morris Butler, and that funny Stoughton boy is n't any bigger than my little sister-I wonder how he got in. College is such a nice place, only you have to know how to do things. When I went down to the gymnasium to see those Sophomores drill, they were very ungentlemanly to me-I could n't sit down all thatweek. And then the college well did n't agree with me-I had a dreadful time about it. But things are nicer now. I like Mr. Ballantine in our class, but it is so funny how his head has grown. I just got aletter from Silas, to say that the little calf was dead, and I must answer him right away, so good-bye. Yours truly, WILLIE, 1901.

Ninety-Seven, Rah! Rah! Ninety-Seven, Ninety-Seven, Rah! Rah! Rah! T is with a feeling of regret for the days that are past that I try to write Ninety-Seven's letter for the OLIO. It seems so short a time since the old class was in college, varying the steady routine which the exercises of the in- stitution required by an occasional murmur against com- pulsory church or the far-famed college senate. When September came, and the newspapers all over the land reported the re-opening of the college year, each member of Ninety-Seven, wherever he was, or whatever his occupation, felt more than a momentary pang at the thought that never again would the doors of Amherst College open for him as a student. But now, when October has ended, the feeling has naturally changed. This may perhaps be due in part to the difference between football prospects and results. Now even Newton must realize that he must turn his unflagging zeal to other branches of work. The other branches of work at present consist of plaster barrels. The good "Dicker" rolleth them from dock to storeroom in Red Beach, a flourishing suburb of his native Calais. His quondam room-mate, Merrill, is still handling the cash, this time in a bank, somewhere in the northern wilds. of Vermont. ' Pride goeth before a fall. josh, the intrepid, the woman hater, has succumbed among the first, and has contracted to fulfil the vows of t ff' T lxhsgffs llh 1 X 60 I-Iymen in the near future. Ed. Esty may be found in his brother Tom's familiar seat in Chapel and Walker Hall. I-Ie hath taken upon himself the duties of Walker Instructor. Bob Esty and Ike Patch are room-mates at Harvard Law. Ike has disgraced his class by a hirsute appendage, picked up somewhere in Europe this past summer. Billy Gates hath betaken himself, tennis-racket, and "chattels', to a boys' school at Elizabeth, N. J. Ned Blake reports that he is studying," as much nights " as when in college and pro mm, accomplishing the same results. Percy Boynton is teaching advanced "English Lit" to sun- dry odd professors of Harvard University. The "Grosvenor Gemini " have at last smote in twain the ever-connecting link, and, miles apart, are teaching the young idea. Lengthy Perry, him of the sunset com- plexion, is studying law at Columbia, L. Ask Hall and " Doc " Kennedy are with him, all three have learned enough to convict themselves of a forl, at least, during their college course. Bob Ingersoll has left civilization completely. His mail goes to Duluth, Minn., now-a-days, where Bob is running the " Lit " department of the High School. His running partner, Arthur Hunt, is longing for more "Psych " worlds to conquer, and studying for the ministry, carry- ing on both operations in New York City. The 5121427673 reports "Eff" Pratt in the commission business in Des Moines, Iowa. The Studerzi is misinformed. Pratt, following the example of Dicker Newton, rolls barrels in the parental store. Good old Kuchukoff is in Union Theological Seminary, where he wants all '97 men visiting in New York to look him up. " Tip " Tyler is developing muscle among the boys of St. Mark's, Southboro', and " Chumpy" Warren is doing ditto at Riverview. "Kelly" and Tommy McEvoy have entered the ranks of teachers as well, "Kell" in Brooklyn "Poly," and "Mac" at his old stand, Cortland, N. Y. But enough of this. The men of Ninety-Seven have followed in the footsteps of all the other classes of old Amherst. The four years of work and play in college have left their mark on each man, affecting some only slightly, and completely remoulding others. Fortunate are those who have given the old Amherst spirit full sway, leading them into the path where lies the true conception of citizenship and manly living. A college does not make prominent men. That task is indi- 6 1 . vidual. Amherst's duty is to make men, so drawing their characters that their lives are fruitful of manly deeds. It is our pride that Ninety- Seven possesses an unusually large number of such men, whose lives will bear a living witness to the influence for good exerted by their Alma Mater. Ninety-Seven may bring forth no great pulpit orators, no pre-eminent lawyers or-business men, but the large majority will do what is given them to do, faithfully and earnestly, filling creditably their own niches in the great world. So will they repay Amherst for the four years just ended. Wishing you the best success withyour OLIO, Ninety-Nine, and most profitable years as upper classmen, I am, Most sincerely yours, ' HENRY H.

BLACK HALL SCHOOL, BLACK HALL, CONN., JVo11ember I, '97. 62 Zlukm A subset Armstrong gkugus'-1: 7, 1877 I flbieizmorls-rm: 25, 1897 FOR the second time in the history of the class of Ninety-Nine, death has in- vaded our ranksg and this time has taken from us our friend and classmate, John Herbert Armstrong. A friend he was to all who knew him. His sturdy qualities of young manhood commanded respect and won friendship everywhere. Enmities are not aroused by the sunny and sympathetic temperament that was his. John Armstrong was a true son of Amherst. With all his heart he entered into the activities of college life, furthering to the best of his ability the interests of his Alma Maier. He was elected to the Studezzf board during his Freshman year, and he was one of the editors of this OLIO. The shock of his death did not come to us as a surpriseg but our grief was none the less great. It was at the close of the last college year that he was first taken ill. An operation was performed in September. lt was unsuccessfulg still he lingered on for about a month, when he finally passed away. The affliction is oursg but it is tempered by the thought that with him all is well. 63 unior Statistics it "O wad some power the giftie gie us To see oursels as ithers see us." And her: 's your chance! CIIARLEY ATKINSON, alias Att Kee, was born in japan, but without almond eyes or la cue. Being a minister's son, he is blessed with a faith in Providence second only to his faith in himself, and, strange to say, has a good reputation. He sometimes stubs his toes around the cinderfpath in the vain belief that he is trainin , but this monomania is not serious and will soon wear off. t present he is training for the mission fiild, and expects to be able to give the Hottentots a good run for their supper. REDERICK HUNTINGTON ATWOOD arrived on this terrestrial ball in 1878, in Newton Centre, F Mass., from nobody knows where. 1Ie is celebrated as bein r the brother of " Bony," also as being a member of the firm of Atwood and King, associated press of ikmherst. Freddy possesses a pleasing personality, a winning smile, and a slight knowledge of Nungy's Rhetoric. In his spare moments he is writing a biography of himself, and see this for further particu ars. ALBERT ELMER AUSTIN comes from Medway, Mass., where pumpkins, parsley, squashes and "sich other garden truck" abounds. Environment certainly had a good deal of mfiuence in his case, but he is improving gradually, and we guarantee that if he takes a three-years' P. G. course he will be quite a sport, by cow. Well, we won't say anything more about Austin because he is on the Board, by cow. JOSEPH W. BARR came to this scat of learning from the region of natural gas wells, andthe presence of Phelps and Spining, he says, always reminds him of home. His success in literature is hampered somewhat b the fact that he does not let his hair grow lon r like Allan's. joe is one of the charter members and 'oint owners of the Merrill Golf Club, and was adjmitted to partnership solely on account of his ability. lege plays the mandolin in a shameful manner and occasionally murders a beautiful thought by trying to put it into poetry. . FRED. T. BEDFORD, TR., was born about twenty years ago, and has been borne with ever since. " Beddy" is a fine public s eaker and the author of several volumes of poetry-which have been suppressed. Has a bad habit of flitttcring other people and of asking their advice on all sorts of puestxons. He talks a great deal about his horses and his races, but he seems to favor the college breed o equines, and his only race here is with the cunning of the Profs. ' CARL MARBLE BLAIR is from Warren, Mass. I'Ie often deceives one by his serious and earnest manner and the sympathetic tones of his voice. I-Ie must be heard to be appreciated. Talk about the trnmpet's blarel 1t's a mere whisner compared with a Carl Marble Blair. His favorite study is, chem. istryg his favoriteliteraturc we would prefer not to state. He is studying to be a Methodist revivalist, and judlgipgl from appearances he will be a peach. Ilis sole aim at present is to pass Kimmie's exams at the ent o tie term. FREDERICK I-I. BODMAN, the only hackslider in the class, early got in line for the class cup, and at present has a dead cinch: but he has his punishment. Like Sisyphus, we see him wearl y rolling a heavy weight up College Hill only to have it roll down again later ong incidentally the weigiht calls im " Papa." But Bodman has his uses as well as his troubles, he is our warning, and in the wist ul wisps of hair still remaining on his overburdened head, we can read whole chapters o our future history, and learn to bow our heads meekly under the yoke of matrimony. RALPH WALTON BOTHAM claims Putnam, Conn., as his place of birth, although the Putnamites are too modest to claim it themselves. Early in his course Botham took a prominent part in athletics, but overpress of work has deprived the A. A. A. of a good man. I-Ie does not know why he came to college-no one else does-but he is sup osably trying to fit himself for College Pastor some. where. Ile is Mormon in his tastes, and in politics ,has a leaning towards Woman's Rights. 64 M. BROOKS. Star shark fhammer headcdg, and prize plugger in the class. When he goes in to E- take an exam like the war-horse scentingt e batt e from a ar and eager forthe fray, he sets up a fri htful snorting and wheezing which is very inspiring to a weaker spirit. He is a rising athlete, espe- ciagly in the weight events. Is regarded as a promising candidate for class egotist. H. BROWNE. This has held successfully against all comers the oflice of college egotist for two M' long years, and seems now to have a lead-pipe cinch on the oflice for two more. n t e strength of this honor he has worn a purple and white sweater since Freshman year, when the College recognized his merit and awarded him an U A " for his brilliant work in this department. Ile wishes it understood that he is the only Browne Qfor which fact we are truly thankfulj. ' A. BULLOCK is very well known in our honored College and possesses a great many qualities. H' One of them-that supreme confidence in self, which is the prerogative of genius alone. Bullock is a great and exalted personagc-in Bullock's opinion, and Bullock's opinion is absolutely infallible-in Bullock's opinion. So, as his opinion is proven infallible in itself, Bullock is, of course, a great and exalted personage. flfor further particulars see thc " Grinds."J CHARLES HENRY COBB, the human tfnbstone, is best known by his pale-blue grouch, which, however, is occasionally fringed by a ilic ering smile. Corn-Cobb has won many a medal for his marvellous feats on the cinder path, but if occasion should ever cause a succession of silent mouth.stretch. ing eachinnations of more than two seconds' duration to light up his solemn countenance, the 01.10 Board would gladly reward such merit with a medal far surpassing them all. Cobby is slowly getting over the recollection of the time " when he was over to Williston, by cow," and by the time he graduates we shall hope to hear him say instead, H When I was in Amherst, by hen. ' GEORGE HENRY COLMAN. "Parturz'ef1l monks, nascelur rztizkulus wus" in Gardner, Mass. Aug. 11, 1877. George has been troubled by sickness much during his life, and his thin, emaciated frame is a source of worry to all of his friends. T iere has always been more or less of George, and still is. Rumor has it that he intends to buy up a whole anti-fat sanitarium for self-treatment. ' 'he only thing for which he is famous as yet is the fact that Frinky told him at Prexy's reception, that " he had a striking face." EDWIN ARTHUR COLTON, of Montpelier, Vt., came to ns highly recommended as a student and society leader. Both of these recommendations he has fully proved, even beyond our most sanguine expectations. " Bump" is also a promising athlete and makes an invincible centre on the Football team. ills chief dithculty in college so far has been in trying to smoke larger and stronger cigars than any one else. OIIN CORSA, age uncertain, is a. native of Washington, D. C., from which place he comes to us with J the bearing and experience of a senator. In time we expect him to discover that he does not break all the hearts in Hamp, that his is not the only voice in the choir, that he is not the biggest man in College, that his are not necessarily the best ideas that have been promulgated upon matters o vital importance, cl celera ad infmluml E O. DAMON is a more or less bright youth of a somewhat startled expression of countenance and of ' dlistingue, high caste plaster-cast appearance. His utterance is rather thick on account of a hered- itary, unsilken deformity of the upper lip. His reputation recalls to us the old verdict of "not proven," and if we told all we know about him- but he lives too near. FREDERICK NORMAN DEWAR is as yet classed as an suckling, and he is said to be still in his teething stage. Fritz? is a sport of the blackest tyzpe, and his fast life is said to account for his size. He has often tried to re orm, and the college Y. M. '. A. at last succeeded in inducing him to join its chosen few. Since then he has become a slave to the red lemonade habit. He is honorary mem- her of the W. C. C. i1Women of the College Churchj, and President of the F. M. C. C. B. QB oreign Missions CastoiTClot es Boardy. CHARLES IRWIN DEWITT, better known as " De," is tall and slender, with a S anish' comtplexion and raven hair. His nature is poetical,and his favorite line of study is baseball. Ige is fond o litera- ture, especially at Sunday morning service. He attends chapel regularly, and is a member of the Amherst Fire Brigade -the only representative from '99, since Abe left col ege. RAYMOND SMITH DUGAN, an odd specimen containing four cubic feet of skin and bone, and tippin the scales at fifty litres,which hails from Montague, Mass. Dugan's form is such that he has to stangin the same place twice to make any perceptible shadow. Dugan as an inglrowing face, and buys number eight shoes, always paying cash, for because of their very size he can't get t em hung up. If we thought Dugan worth while we would write more about him, but has it is, we wi l let the matter drop. But there are others, Dugan! 65 GEORGE HENRY DUNCAN, the dog.faced, first opened his mouth withthatexpression peculiar to himself, twenty years ago in the little hamlet of Eastjaffrey N. 1-I. "Bow-wow" is noted for his famous 1-know-it-a l, ask-me.if-you.don't-know expression with which hc tries to pull professors' lags. The football diamond one year bore the marks of his abortivc attempts to play. The college choir su ers similarly now. This swain is the hero of yon North Amherst homely man contest. RUFUS PORTER EASTMAN, the fifth of six brothers to enter Amherst College Qfrom' which his age may be roughly estimatedy is an attendant at the College Church and a strict prohibitionist. ls excitem or moved to action by nothingg has round, full face ant easy bearing. Rufy spends most of his time looking out for his Fres iman brother. Since enterintg college he has learned to smoke, and proudly boasts that it is social polish and not education that he is a ter. GEORGE ANDREW ELVINS has very little biography, owing to his former connection with '98. But he saw his mistake while there was yet time to rectify it. During the past few months a strange phenomenon has been taking place, -viz. : the disappearance of hair on the crown of his head and its simul- taneous appearance on his upper lip, a feature which in fpart accounts for his phenomenal social success in the suburbs of Amherst. Georgie has an affectionate isposition and is muc sought by tradespeople. EMERSON, E. HOPPIE, is a native of Amherst and was born with four teeth and lots of face. In time he lost the teeth, but still has the face. Noted throuighout his boyhood for his bashful disposition and shy manners. His usefulness in college can be summe up in one word, but as yet we have failed to hnd the appropriate one. ' ' THOMAS GRINNELL FLAHERTY, alzirs Moriarty,-alias McSweeney, comes from a land of milk and honey. His military talents soon showed themselves and he still proudly exhibits his skill acquired in the Boys' Military Brigade. His greatest ambition is to become assistant to Gen. Coxey or Gen. Booth, for elt fer of whose armies he is eminently fitted. Tommy is a pious youth, much given to deep reading on religious subjects. Reticent by nature, he seldom takes any part in conversation, and above all, abhors story.tell1ng'. , ' FESTUS HARVEY FOSTER,J'R. The earth received a resounding thwack at the coming of Foster into Sprintgfield, Mass., some twenty odd years ago. Since then it ras received many by reason of his tackles in the ootball field. Heynrepared at t c Hig 1 School in Springfield, at least he says he did and entered college in the full glory o his budding man ood. He has een prominent all throulgh his college course in ath etics, also one night on Prexy's steps during a celebration. He hopes to enter t e Senior class next fall. Festus may be termed an elongated mass o protoplasm with enlargements at both ends, the upper one being by far the largest ever found in this variety. HENRY RICHARDSON FRENCH. This specimen is the eighth wonder of the college world. I-Ie registers from Lynn, and his principal occupation is travelling between Amherst ant Mt. Holyoke College, where. he is supposed Qby iimselfl to cut a wide swath. The object of his affection is himself, and his favorite pastime is talking French. He wears aseven and one.half hat and a wc.are.the-people look of agony. He does n't yet vote, but carries an anarchist's bomb in his hip pocket. His principal vices are too numerous to mention. ' I . EDWARD DICKINSON GAYLORD is an' example of a minus quantity that approaches 0 for its limit. It is supposed that he is one of those extraneous specimens 'that sometimes occur to clog humanity's Rrogress. He was first found asleep in a crowdid North Amherst alley. Is noted for nothing but his mee ness. " E. D." has a subdued wa k, and may e easily recognized bythe length of his face. His long residence in the burghlct of North Amherst may account or this mournful mien. at GAYLORD, P. P.," since the days when Eph's melodious tones lulled us to repose, has been a familiar name amongst us. He is best known by the masterly and. dignified manner with which he presides at Mrs. Osgood's hospitable board, serving omelette with such lightning speed that it resembles a dash of gold on asunset sky. Paul has two beautiful smiles, one designed for professors' beguilement, the other, a heart snatcher, never seen this side therivcr. By nature he is deeply religious, but e keeps it dark.

He is a very sweet singer, and is forever humming Gospel tunes and light operas for the delectation of his friends. AMES CHAPMAN GRAVES, ahhs Fob or Dutch, hails from Woodenhead, Marblehead, and other J places. Strikes a good average betweenlthe Hamp-habit and the Gold.cure. "Tchimm1e" is best known as the successor of the senior partner in the firm of Gunsaulus 8: Messinger. Since his admission to this firm Jimmy has been training assiduously for the position of alderman, and with good results. His favorite course is chemistry, and I-Ioppie is hisfavorite professor. Q 66 ' WALTER HENRY GRIFFIN was dug up in Brooklyn, N. Y., about twenty years ago. Ile was brought up by his parents with the express intention of entering the Brooklyn police force. ln this education he acquired great bravery and also a great propensity for breaking the laws. On account of the latter he was sent to Amherst, and since entering here, ythe samecpropensity has caused the class of 'UU many broken- faces as well as pocket-books. He will pro ably spen his later years in breaking stone in the South Sea Islands. . - - CHESTER METCALF GROVER, the fifth cousin of the Ex-President of that prmnomen, doesn't seem to inherit any of the physical characteristics of the latter.

If you want to get on the good side of Grover, just go up to him and tell him, confidentially, that he is developing wonderfully. H EIAIQIAVI-I E, HATCH, soldier, statesman, and scholar, was born nobody knows when and where. Some say that his advent to this mundane sphere was the direct cause of the sun spot in 1872, but there is no way of ascertaining the truth. Ilatch gained his reputation as a soldier in the snow fight with the Freshman last year, while his reputation as a scholar rests solely on his wise look, and is strongly refuted hy I-Io mpie. I-Iateh's chief distinction,is his membership in the " Hitch and I-Iatchcock Combina- tion " of Freshman year. ' . ARTIiUR'IIAVILAND, a young man from the region of Rip Van Winkle, Catskill, N. Y., possesses many of Rip's attributes. Ile is seen at periodic intervals, going between the Gym and Pratt Field, but at no other time is he visible to the eye. Like 'Uriah lleep, he is very " mnble,' and because of his modest ways is a great favorite with the girls. ' t ALFRED C. HENDERSON, of Brooklyn. You all know IIendy--he's that funnylooking man who rooms at the Colonel's. We have often felt that the Colonel's was a bad place for one so young, and later developments have justified our fears. Ilendy was elected leader of the Banjo Club, a position which he resigned in order to accept a similar honor at Princeton. But better instincts grevailed and he remained among us. Have you noticed, recentiy, a worried look on Billy l3igelow's face P hat 's come since I-Iendy began taking singing lessons-and illy Bigelow is not alone. EDWARD W.

IIOWE is from Coldwater, Michigan, we hope that he has no born aversion to Hotwater, Amherst. A. C. worries more over keeping is reputation distinct from those of his two namesakes than any other burden thrust 0'n him by fate. -He is famous in college for having resented a tirade against himself from longsuffering Hoppie, and having asked an apology.

Some authorities say New York, some say Kansas, Kellogg says nothing, but smiles in steriously. When front names were distrihuted, Kel must ave been in the first row along with P. T. Ward and Willy Meander Burclock Collins. His chief occupation is that of going to the post oflice. It has oftenxbeen said that he resembles Mr. Nelligan. For this statement we humbly apologize to the physical department. HENRY PLIMPTON KENDALL is a boy with a Zuiet, deep face that belies his dispositiong he -really has seen so much life that his hair ras turne white. I-Iisstudies in natural history were at one time extensive, but his researches Cone dark nightj into the manners and customs of the " wood-pussy " rather dampened his ardor. Harry has pursued the downward path, as he attends only thirty-eight class prayer-meetings a year now, against forty as a Freshman. ' WILLIAM MORRISON KERR, Jr., is an Ohio boy of much promise. IIe is especially noted for his fine work in " Grosvie," and it is said that he at present holds the record for cigarette smoking.

He may be easily identified by the brand of the cigarette he is smoking. - CLEAVELAND CADY KIMBALL, surnained " Fruit." One of those useless members of ourclass that we can't seem to shake though we have tried our best. NVc all know who Pie-Face Kimball ex-'98 was. Well to use IIop,pie's expression, Fruit is a good deal like his brother, onl moreso. Our only con- solation is that he will e in col ege only a year and a half more. " Fruit" and, Bullock would make a fine team. Cheer up, Kimmic, there may yet be hope! WILLIAM I-IARDING KING, jr., was selected by the citizens of Winnetka Ill., to enter their midst about the year 1878. He at once took a prominent position as the livin f fat baby, and this rc utation has always clung to him. He is of a very modest and retiring disposition, anfd is a general society Favorite.

He is familiarly known as " Bill," and among his closest friends as ' oustac no. KAMEO KOJIMA, although coming from Okayama, Japan, soon found that three weeks at " Sheen " Lentell's was too much even for a foreigner to endure. In this respect, at least, he does not diffier from the rest of us. Ninety-nine's best wishes are with the Mikado's only representative. CHARLES EDWIN LAMSON, he who is " with us but not of us," comes from Hartford. 'It has been suggested that Eddic's soul is ever fliscoursing sweet music, to which Eddie is ever listening, thus causing t at rapt, far-away expression. But we know that dream look is there because Limson is ever composing and planning some of the many essays and exercises fic is behind in, some hundreds of which linger over from Fres iman and Solphomore year. Eddie is spry and agile, with a deep-basement voice that has not yet been fathomed, an a half-awake expression that fools lots of people. Has the largest head in the class, and the record of never having missed a Gym exercise during his college course. LITTLE WILLIE LYMAN arrived one day from the green fields of Westfield, and has staid with us quietly ever since. His face is a happy combination of an i' I would if I dast, but I dasn't" expression, and a bcatific, Sozodont smile. One of his legs has acquired a pronounced list to starboard from holding up such a weight as Willie's pondcrous frame, but he is not proud on that account, and will often shake :ands when asked politely. His resemblance to Wheeler has caused little Willie a good deal of deep analytical introspection. , JOHN HOLBROOK MARRIOTT took his first plunge into the seething sea of life 'at his parents' home in Springfield about twenty-four years ago.

CLARENCE E. MERRIAM was resuscitated in the town of Gardner, somewhere along in the sev- enties. Nobody as yet knows why this was done. Since reachintil Amherst, his fast, sportintg life has begun to tell on him, and his bowed head and figure show the weig t which is crowding him own. I-Ie ori inally intended to studcv for the ministry, but at last reports he and Roundy are to set sail .for Monte Earle immediately after 'ommencenient. Clarence has a smile for everybody, although to -tell the truth it does not mean much. He weighs about 132 pounds and is the running mate of Dugan, g. v. CLEMENT FESSENDEN MERRILL, alhzs " Rosy," was born somewhere in the West. It is either to the rays of a setting! sun or to the biting breezes of Chicago that he owes his clelicate com- lexion. Clemmy is chiefly nown through the Merrill Golf Club, which he conducts on principles learned Rom his fellow-citizen T. .B.Platt. " Little Pink Cheeks " is a republican in politics, an occasional Con- gregationalist, and beiongsto the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. In appearance he is six feet seven inches tall, and very slender., ' WILLIAM FESSENDEN MERRILL is a cousin to the preceding. I-Ie is also a stockholder in the Golf Club. Billy first distinguished himself in hose parties on the back campus Freshman year. Since then he has held many oflices during his stay in college, ran ing from Treasurer of the Merrill Golf Club to fifty.sixth substitute on the Second Eleven. Billy is an cngiusiastic Goltiac, but for some unknown reason is never seen on the links. If you think Billy has not been suiliciently roasted in the OLlo you may be assured that it is not from a luck of material, for Hillenty has been compi ed and may be obtained rom the associate editors, any time after the publication of t is book. HUBERT'MCCULLOCK MESSINGER, of' Chicago, is a dark horse for a degreeg either B. S., B. 8: S., Bachelor of Agriculture, or anything that is lying around loose. Bert's happiest faculty is for getting in the game fwhat game ?D and getting out of tight places. Not being of a ver complex nature, he is easily seen through-especially between the knees, where he presents the aspect ofya double convex ens. RUFUS EDWARD MILES. The onlyvthing that can be said of " Rufe" is that he pulls "4 's." We cannot all reach such heights. e cannot all be perfect. We can only deem it fortunate that such shining examples are set among. us, and strive in our small way to emulate t iem, and if, perchance, some trifling crumbs of enlightenment fall into our empty mouths from their overflowing stores of wisdom, may we receive them with a proper humility of joy. '- ROBERT TALBOTT MILLER, jk., of Covington, the Kentucky ball tosser fij, coming from the free West, has found the restraints of college ife at Amherst very burdensome at times. His chief that he has not had enough time free from colle YC work, to spend in I-Iam , the haven of all true society'fussers and sports. Length, two cubits, capacitv,bl,000 kilos. " Bobby " is the doughty captain of '99's aggregation of stars, and thence succeeds in holding down third bases, and incidentally, also, any scores which might be made by his minions. CIIARLES EDWIN MITCHELL came to us from "near Boston" Chush, Clielseaj. He came, he saw, he talked-and he has not finished talking yet. Charley is a persevering athlete, he runs. Running develops the wind. Built on generous principles as regards quantit , his delicate cherry-blossom complexion and auburn hair are in themselves a guarantee of success in any dime show, but we are afraid " Mitch " will continue to blush unseen, thc' not through any fault of his own. GEORGE WILLIAM MOORE, of Oil City, entered College surrounded by good influences, but unfortunatelly he met Charlciy Mitchell. However, we have always thought that his an clic cast of countenance wou d ultimately fin its rightful place. We are glad to hear that he has been filing a vacant pulpit during the summer months. " Nick" is studying for assistant to Ilill Esty in mathematics, and a brilliant success is assured him in this line. "Nick " is also exceedingly fond of cider, and we have fears for his future. . A-RTIIUIL CURTISS MORSE hails from Norwood. It is not known for certain which Norwood Arthur Curtiss hails from, but we have suspicions. I-lis love of home must be.remarkablc, for he is seen starting in that direction sometimes twice a week. Dick Rahar is the only other Norwood man we ever knew, and he spciaks of "Wog" in highest terms. His motto is-"Mars ommb sujneratj' which translated reads-" orse always at supper." Let 's leave " Wog " alone, he has his troubles, so have we-and he 's one of 'em. WILLIAM JESSE NEWLIN, surnamed " Dooley," house address Pennsylvania. Born in the ascendency of jupiter but brought up under Mar's control. Dutch's time and attention has been taken up this last summer and most of this term in writing' and publishing his latest book, " How I missed the Walker Prize", or, " It might have been." Dooley will probablymake 41 B Kif a sufficient number of the class are killed off' before next spring. , 69 EDWARD BARTLETT NITCI-IIE entered college in partnership with young Crokcr of Tamxnany U fame. They were a pair, a Bartlett pair, you might say. , But early in the course,.Croker croaked, as it. were, and E. Bartlett was alone. Since then he has filled animportant niche in college life, materially aidpd by a most entrancing moustache. He is now largely occupied in holding down the circulation of the I a FRANK BREWER ORVIS chose his middle name late in life, wishing to be named after his greatest benefactor. I-Ie spends his time coming back late to college, and ma ing up consequent back work. As a social light, Frank is a g-Heat success, never having missed a hi h school reception since his arrival, and being also familiar witht e nooks and alcoves of Pacific Hall. This year he is pluggingl, so speak in whispers. ls of a moping disposition and should avoid Pontiac, East street, and other so itu es. ROSWELL FOULK PI-IELPS is a pretty boy from somewhere in Pelham, and is a -wonder, unlike Ogieen Elizabeth who was a Ylzdor. Phelps has bright brown eyes and lovely hair, and is very attrac- tive in his manner. Has a frank, open face which, by the way, is never shut. We suggest that the provisions of the Raines Law would cover this case as an objectionable joint that needs closing. We think with continued practice he would make an excellent snake charmer, for his facial features present .a very striking appearance. The main trouble with Phelps is that he thinks too much of Phe ps. His future is yet undecided, but he would succeed as a cigar store Indian. EMERY BEMSLEY POTTLE is from Naples, N.Y. Sometimes known as our" Long Neapolitan," but more familiarly styled " Potts." We have known him longer than any man in the class, though after his distinguished wor on the class cane committee, he was said to be the shortest. When E. B. first sang on the choir, Pa Tuttle was heard to murmur from the pulpit, " Thank you, Mr. Pottle, I will remain outside." As an athlete Pottle extinguished himself. winning ve points for his class, and eternal honor for himself. Is seven feet tall, five feet being above the waist-line. LESTER SCOTT PULSIFER. There are twenty Brooklyn men in college besides Pulsiferg Brook- . lvn has recently changed its name. No sufliciently strong influence coul be brought to bear on Pul- sifer Freshman ,year-the Village Imtprovement Society would not take the job- so he was allowed to run wild. But than s to the beneficent in uence of '99, Lester has become quite civilized, and the " roasts " of former OLIo's are no longer applicable. FREDERICK WINGATE RAYMOND was horn in the same town that piroduced Toggle joints, and . this explains the peculiarities of both. Ile is the only original Swiss ell Ringer in college, and is responsib e for many of the cuss-words breathed forth when the chimes break the Sunday stillness. Ile is a skilful poker player, and has been known to smoke on occasion. Since entering college he has been seen to cipen his mouth occasionally, but usually keeps it shut, gazing vainly ahead for a glimpse of the Phi Beta appa key. RALPH BISSELL REDFERN, better known by " Reddy," broke the awful stillness of the midnight air in Winchester about twenty-two years ago. After husking " pumpkins " in the country for a ew years, he litghted up darkest Amherst with his genial smile. Here his prominence has been mainly in athleticsan flunking, and in the latter he has become a very graceful performer. Measures fifty inches S-Iomlthe sole. But we 'will let " Reddy" speak for himself, inasmuch as he is the best " small ta k".er in C C HSS. FRANK O. REED, the writer of those beautiful verses beginning " I've been working on the rail. road," etc., sprung up in Southbridge, Mass., about twenty years ago. The town soon got rid of him, however, as did several others he visited, till finally Frank took to the railroad and was shifted to and fro until finallyhe landed in Amherst. To keep him out of mischief the authorities ut him in college. Hav- ing become awarm friend of " 1.evi's," the two set up a cooperative establisllment. Levi fiunked his class and Frank tutored them. By this means the two gentlemen have become immensely wealthy. ALBERT ROBERTS. NVe were going to write three pages about Albert, but he came to us expressing great anxiety about the matter. " You know my folks live here in town, and you know it would put me in a devil of a fix if they get on to any of these things. So for heaven's sake don't sav anything about -- or about-- or about -- or about -1 "and so on. Well, what was in the blank spaces was just what we were going to write about him, so if you are curious to know about them, ask Roberts. ALEXANDER ELTING ROSA, of Milford, Del., has been noted for the ease and facility with which he drops from class to class. I-las distinguished himself mainly as football player and student. Was president of Christian Endeavor Society for two years. He now says he will grac nate with '99 or never, having, in fact, waited for this very purpose. RODNEY WILEY ROUNDY, of Rockingham, Vt., is a good example of .the onomatopnetic deriva- tion of names. His early life was spent chasing a plough. I-lis college life in a furtlve chase between Walker Hall and the Lab for a Phi Beta Kap a key. I-Ie first distinguished himself as a broad minded citizen of North Dormito and a vigorous upholjder of Dormitory institutions. He is an all.round student and a heavy thinkerg wou?d excel as a gravestone cherub. 70 IMMIE RUSSELL was born we don't know where, but probably in jersey or Hibernia. Ilis J regular,'classic features having become tangled up in freckles, it is somewhat diilicult to trace'his Grecian ancestryg but Jimmie is still looking for it, and often holds a mirror up to nature for long periods of time. He possesses a- fine, hard.finish, soprano-octavo voice, and though not easily strung, is often caught on a barber-shop chord. ' ARCHIBALD HALL SHARP. At the beginning of this year we were given to understand that Sharpic had left us, but no such good fortune was in store, for he is still to e seen in our midst. As Tip rephesicd, he has not yet become sharp enough to cut himself. This youth labors under the delusion thatgie is a born social leader, but that he has conspirators to defeat who try to outdo him. He is best known as the author of the statement that common salt is most abundant in the neighborhood of barns. Able authorities, like Hoppie, question the accuracy of this statement. AMES AUGUSTINE SHEA is from Willimantic, where they make thread. He is a superiorweave, J but too lon drawn out at least that 's what they all shea. But james is a good boy, and a student of considerable tzgent, which he is reserving as a surprise to his classmates. Is very popular, being, as it XVCTC, the Ward McAllister inhat-shop circles. Would make a good New York alderman or Brattleboro police- man, having already secured a partial uniform from Oflicer O'Flannery of that town. RALPH WALDO SMITH, "The Silent," came to us from U. of P. a year or two ago, and as he is a niceboy, we have kept lnm ever since, notwithstanding his numerous names. llc possesses a voice -as no one has ever tried to rob him of it-which he uses with great perseverance and seeming enjoyment on the Glee Club. He, often keeps quietg for all our many mercies may we be truly thankful. ROBERT'CHESTER SMITI-I lives in town, but in justice to him we will say that you would never think so to look at him. He has lately been chasing an U A " on the football fieldg we always thought his kicking powers would receive recognition. Keep up your good work, Bobby, and even trough you don't get within megaphone distance of rp B .Kyou may keep up with the class. Bobby is best known by his " Regal " air, which he has on sale for 58.50 a pair. HENRY gOHN STORRS, the man with the wooden mask. This s ecimen is marked " fragile," and must e handled with care. During his Freshman year he inadlvertently smiled at something and cracked his face. He has been trying ever since to heal it, but it mends slowly. Storrs has received tit is rumoredj an offer from joe jefferson to take the part of Rip during his twenty years' sleep. AIRTHUR REED TAFT, or " Strawberry," Arthur as he is familiarly known, hails from Worcester, Mass. Finding Amherst's climate a little cold for him, Taft takes frequent trips to the South QHadleyJ. Taft has made a specialty of chemistry and mathematics, and any U tough" questions will he cheerfully apsweredljwy ljgm. :Xrthur can be best described by just mentioning his counterpart, " Iehabod Crane." Tiat is se -su cien . ' EDWARD EVERETT.THOMPSON, the discontented man, swallowed some aloes during his youth, it is said, and it is quite evident that he has not yet forgotten the taste of them. Thompy is severely handicapped by the fact that the college at large thinks him a plugger. He is martly responsible for the exorbitant fines of the library, but he does not seem to mind the disgrace. Tliompson is rushing his namesake, alias joggles, violently, and is making great gains through lnm towards the rp B Kgoal. WELLINGTON HUTCHINSON TINKER is well known by his glorious crop of hair, which resembles a wheat field after a cow has been through it. His favorite expression is " How are yon, old man " ? and his favorite Song, " After the ball." Having a bass voice, this usually evolves into " After the baseball," and Tink usually gets it. Tinker would succeed either as the Circassian Lady in a dime museum, or as the advance agent of the " Seven Sutherland Sisters." EDWARD DONALD TOLLES is the most nervous man in the class. His actions are all so rapid and swift that his nervous system is fast wearing out. How sad in one so voungl What a lesson it should teach us of how we should take things easier and not worry so much! XVe advise you, Don, to take a year of complete rest in the Adirondacks, or Klondike. Don's uture career is foreign missionary work qso he saysl. EDWARD CLAFLIN TRACY. The champion plugger of the class. His daily schedule is this: Get up at five, and plug till breakfast. Go to chapel, and then between recitations in the morning, plug. Hurry through dinner and plug before afternoon recitations. Then come home, and plug till supper. After supper hustle home, and plug till-well, say bedtime, for short. Tracy's strong point is getting out lessons from three to four days a tend. Tracy is an ardent follower of Mary Ellen ease and Arthur John Hoppins. V ALBERT MORSE WALKER entered Amherst this year from an Ohio College, with lofty aims. For instance, he gstitioned the Faculty for permission to jtke psychology as an extra, fifth study. 0 temporal 0 mares! hat are we coming to P He has also announced his intention of making Phi Beta Kappa. Well, the less said the better. 71 1 CHARLES WARNER WALKER hails from " Hump." Ile is commonly known as " Stubby," on account of his large size. Stands six feet in his stocking feet, weighs 190 with his shoes on, and 182 with them off. Common expression,-" Whistle and she 'll come to you." Much of his time is spent in chewing the rag and telling how things should be done. His social aspirations are high, and in pur- suance of this he parts his hair so as to cover the bald spots made by the friction of the wheels in his head. WARD, P--L Th-E BL--S fScarcity of ink in the market necessitated this abbreviation.--Ed.D is the one man who rules the destiniesof '9' as the iron.clad Monitor did those of '63, and whose piercing eye " nought escapes without, within." " Doc " is also the class treasure-r. We trust we will never see our funds going to-Ward Canada. HERBERT PORTER WHITNEY isa man that we can respect for his good sense, 11:21. .' for the wav he came into a good class, even though he had to stay out of college a yxear to do it. "Whit" is one of those men who go out on the gridiron with leather arrangements on their eads, that make them look like " ads" for surgical apparatus. However, he is not quite so tough as he looks on the football field, and this is a comfort. WIGGY WALDO WIGHT, five feet three and a quarter inches square, and one foot and four inches thick. A homogeneous, isotropic mass of humanitv, who has no energy because he does no work. fSee Elementary Mechanics, page 80.5 It is said that Freshman year, Wig went in Harry Clark's and asked for a hat with an " A " on it, but don't mention this to Wig, for he don't like to refer to it. He has distinguished himself in athletic as well as in social circles, having entered several times for the running broad smile. He may get first place in this event, when '98 has graduated. Wiggy, religiously, is a spirit- ualist, and in politics is a staunch believer in free lunch. LUCIUS D. WILCOX conferred a favor on the inhabitants of Bergen, N. Y., by landing in their midst about the middle of the seventh decade of this century. Since then he has passed through varied experiences, and when pressed, he relates them in an interesting manner. He has taught many a wee Indian sqnaw on his knees, and has helped to develop many of the braves of the Red Men. Dud ey considers himself a favorite with the fair sex, has an oflicious manner. a fine moustache, and wears No. 11 slices. In cilaisroom he excels, especially in chemistry and Gym. Would succeed as a head-waiter ora s ioe store C er . FREDERICK FRANCIS WILLIAMS,0f Lunenburglinot found in Atlas or Road Mapj Mass., represents a "typical college man" in every respect. e is affable and jolly, somewhat of a sport and a great favorite at Smith, where he spends a great deal of his time. Is associate owner of the famous Howe-Williams " Buy Cheap and Sell Dear " process, from which he is said to have made a mint of money. Willy has socialistic tendencies and votes for free silver, gold and greenbacks, free soup houses, and free church. Ilis future profession is teaching dancing. L W'ING alighted among us about two years ago, and soon became acclimated. VVing is essentially ' one of the products of our qjkte modern civilization, and one look at his puny chest and pipe.stem locomotive organs cannot fail to set athoughtfnl person to ponderin upon the harmful effects of modern life. .His delicate build is doubtless due to lack of exercise, as he dloes not go to Gym. His sole ambi- tion is to be Secretary of Agriculture. PARK TLICKER WINSLOW is a native of Amherst. He was as green as a lilac bush when first we knew hun, but he has blossomed fast. "Pucker" is a girl killer above everything else, and how often have wc seen him of a Fine spring evening meandering toward the back campus, a maiden on his arm. We uxiderstand that " Puck " intends to compete for the class cup, and we wish him success. CLAUDIUS CURTISS NVOODWORTH, the man with the Websterian brow, hails from Buffalo. See Woody if you have any doubts as to BufEv.lo's supremacy in the universe. As a social blnifer he is a shivering success- cold chills running down his back when you mention girls. He has a sky-tenor voice of wonderful volume which reminds one of an evening in the saw-mill at home. Have you 'noticed how nice Woody is looking this term. Hush--she is trying to reform him! Our prayers are with lierl but we have little hope. , i'6"E"'. RM ru nfs , if if f x -,ff f K i w i'-Lxf ' k U M 1' - ,n z uumlwm JY f :UW 1 6 .

This building and its- appurtenances, with a liberal endow- ment for the maintenance of the plant, is the generous gift of George D. Pratt, '93, Herbert L. Pratt, '95, and John T. Pratt, '96, all of Brooklyn, N. Y. The idea of the donors was to furnish a home where a student, or member of the faculty or of their families, who might be ill for a long or short period, might go at any hour of the day or night, and find a matron and a nurse, a room and a bed where he could be received, and as soon as desired, placed under the charge of some com- petent physician. This idea was realized by the erection of Pratt Cottage, which was dedicated in the early part of last fall. Pratt Cottage is situated on an eminence half a mile from the centre of the town, and commands a splendid view of the surrounding country. The house is a three- '55 story frame structure, 34 x 35 feet, built in the colonial style. At the front is a semi-circular porch opening through a vestibule into a roomy hall on the first Hoor. On each side of the l1all are two large rooms, a reception room and a dining-room. At the right is the dining-room with a commodious kitchen and pantry connected. The dining-room is handsomely furnished and the sideboard is complete with a sil- ver service for use in the wards. At the left of the hall is the reception room, and this, together with a room and office for the matron's use,comprises the remainder of the Hrst floor. On the second floor, around a large central hallway, are five neatly furnished ward rooms, an operating room, a nurse's room., and several baths. The third floor is designed for the treatment of contagious diseases, and is approached by a staircase on the outside of the building, at the rear. This floor is built in three suites, having no means of access to each other, except by the balcony which sur- rounds the entire upper story. Each suite contains a ward, nurse room, bath and dietary kitchen. The greatest sanitary precautions have been taken in the building of this story, the Hoors are of concrete, and there are no square corners between walls and ceilings. The house is fitted throughout with gas and electric lights, and is heated and ven- tilated by the best means, that architectural skill and experience can supply. From the cellar to the contagious quarters, the appointments of the house are complete in every detail. The architect of the building was Mr. William B. Tubby, who also de- signed the grand stand at Pratt Field. No student is deprived of the advantages of Pratt Cottage on account of expense. All who enter its doors for treatment are given the same tender care, regardless of their ability to pay for such treatment. There are two free beds provided, one by Mr. E. K. Alden, '80, the other by a daughter of an eminent graduate and professor of the College, whose name is withheld. The privileges of the cottage are also offered to the students of the Massachusetts Agricultural College, though under different conditions. The cottage is under a board of control consisting of Mr. George D. Pratt,presi- dent, Dr. Edward Hitchcock, secretary, Mrs. H. H. Neill, Mrs. George D. Olds, Prof. A. L. Kimball and Dr. Paul C. Phillips. Pratt Cottage is the third large gift to the College by the Pratt family, to whom Amherst already owes much for their generosity. N51Z7? f Aff xx MENS? Q UA xf' AK T17 TA? XM? T47 TAT TA?

' JE Our Marking System WAY forward in the year 1999 there was a handful of shades sitting in a circle --and the thermometer registered 2I2o. They had been " reminiscing," and one of the spooks turned to another and said: "I say, Eph, tell us about that marking system, I claim that was the best trick we ever played on the students-may their souls- fry in peace -but I never understood it." A wolverine- faced spirit answered in a whiskery voice: 't Well, you see it depended on what -- mark you wished to give the student. You take the four or five marks brought in from the dif- f .Ji 'J . ff I' lllllg ferent departments, guess roughly at their sum, it 1 I 1 A " y tw f ,J 1 fy 'ls'i:.', i,, V, li.x.

The method was principall X Q 2: y X X 1 ,ji K Cl that of inspection, and was warranted to give de- lx l 3552 U, if-29 lightful dissatisfaction." 'B gf? " It strikes me that the method they now use- '5 J that of the self-registering knowledge dial-while it is a labor-saving device, must give the student an unwise amount of information." " Yes," chimed in another, " It seems to me those boys have too much choice now-a-days." Then one of the spooks who had a black-haired face and a plantigrade walk, be- gan. " It strikes me --" but there was a general howl, and one called Symie shouted " Three strikes and out,"- and thereat with one accord they vanished. I6O Hoppy's Give Away OPPY gave himself dead away one morning last winter term when he announced to the chemistry class :- " Now of course I can tell you that ammonia is given off in this experi- ment, but even then none of the class will actually know whether it really is or not. The class, fully appreciating what an effort it must have cost Hoppy to make such a confession, quietly filed out of the building and stole stealthily away to their respective abodes- H dl! - r 1- ,V -N -, yy, . . , , .,,, , A llu."i' Q. .-'Fi-4 ' 'ff' wit-V ' ,f-ff ,sf-ii1'F'ifilt l " tfi"7llf'Xf T ' ,. .ltll1:'l5 " , .gaifftf i K " ' , w,,.ggffM"t' -3. 4 fzgif i,f3l'7li.5'f " rw V 1 -34,1 3. , -- ex . p- i A, Y, ff' "1 4 Q 'gli' 'L i . l" ir f yy, V lu, A - N , ., 5 fr't+i"'Z'1"f 'f . 1.

QE URING one of Tip's last rambles to places strange and unknown hut to that sage botanist, he chanced to find some exceeding rare and peculiar specimens which now for the first time he makes known to the world. They are the following :- . MILESICUS-,gftllllf maihemafzkns.-A strange flower with a " square root," showing " sines " of very rapid development. This is a new genus, one just like it never having been found before. MERRILLUS-gKll1lJ rlemezztzhe.-A bright red flower, blooming at night, when it is often found full blown. - . EASTMANIA - genus prexyife.-A stately, dignified-looking specimen, its stem waving with a lordly air, found after all to be but a singular occurrence of a common genus. POTTLEMERVA-gezzur lorzgimzs.-A flower of great height and brilliancy, expressing simplicity in every line and giving a fone to its surroundings. PULSIFEROUS -gmur wz'mz'oZia.--A peculiar flower, found only in breezy places. Belongs to the family of chew-the-rag-weed. FOSTERIA -genusfestus.-A very rare flower, and one exceedingly hard of cultivation, as the least injury to the epidermis causes the plant to wilt, and it is resuscitated again only with the greatest difficulty. CONANT -germ.: gram.-A plant with certain hairy peculiarities for which no use has yet been found, nor does the hair improve the looks to any marked extent. It has a way of nodding and bowing which attracts one's attention uponfirst seeing the plant, but loses its effect oh longer acquaintance. H.-xRR1sUs --genus ioughmss.-A plant lost for part of the year, but appear- ing again every fall aboutthe middle of September. Has a striking resem- blance to the ox-eye fdaisyj. ' COLLINSIA -genus Willsanflerlmnk.-Grows everywhere and is often found climbing telegraph poles, etc. Very hard to describe, however, on account of its many peculiarities, the chief of which is its power of making a sharp, shrill noise when disturbed.

REXY: "The athletic manager has a few words to say to you this morning. I hope you will give your attention to this well deserving cause." W1I.I.I1a WIMBY fManager of the combined Baseball, Football and Track teamsl comes humbly forward: "Gentlemen of the College, I want to'say a few words in behalf of this worthy but neglected cause of athletics. Last year you supported our Y. M. C. A. and Alumnus Missionary nobly, giving 82,000 to the former .and 82,500 to the latter. You were amply repaid. Our Y. M. C. A. had thirteen more meetings, distributed 400 more tracts I l and sold 40 more hymn books than either the Dart- mouth or Williams Y. M. C. A.'s. Thus for the . third time we got the championship." CLoud cheers dent of the Y. M. C. A., on the end.j "Now, your Alumnus Missionary work has been grand. Mr. Sandbanks, Captain of our Missionary team in India, shot 5 more tigers, had 3 more tamed monkeys and had 200 more in his Sunday school this 'W tain. This means another championship." tThunder- ous applause.j 'f Now why not support athletics? It is just as much a part of college life as these other causes. I beseech you to give more of your time and interest to this branch. Now this afternoon there is-a football game clown on Pratt field fevery one looks surprisedy, and I want to see at least 50 men down in the side lines cheer- ing on the team." 1' f' Eccentricities of Greatness of Any Old Kind" IP reads the first question in his Exam : "Make a drawing of the organs of your vertebrate as they appeared on opening the ventral wall." just at this point the breeze sighed: " The same old story," as Lysander Collins elevates a flipper and wildly fans the air. Tip sees this, but with a weary smile continues to read. When he has finished he looks at Collins, who is still lacerating the atmosphere, and remarks " Well "P Collins imme- diately bawls, "I did n't open mine on the ventral side, Professor, what shall I do"? "What vertebrate did you have," asks Tip. " Why, I had a turtle," said the irrepressible William, " and I opened him on his back." When finally Tip recovers sufficiently to be able to speak, he says: " A good joke on you, Collins. Opened that turtle on his dorsal side, did you ? I wish you 'd tell me sometime how you did it." - ' 166 and the 'fold yell,,' with the name of Myth, the Presi- last year than the Williams or the Dartmouth cap- Nonsense Lyrics QUEER type of student there be, The queerest that ever you see.

'T was, far beyond he wished to go, but something in the shadow low, such monstrous size stood in the way, he looked-ye gods! it was C. R. Fay. Then, musing on the awful sight, soft zephyrs from the tree-top's height sent music down in gentle whispers, as they playful skim through Ephraim's whiskers. So dread the sight and weird the sound, the stranger forthwith turned around, musing deeply as he goes, at such monstrosities outside of shows.

' 168 ll' Dreams IT was Sunday, and " Nungie " had been distributing the whys and wherefores of religion to the victims of compulsory righteousness, who were all wrapt in blissful slumber. Nungie was running on serenely, with every prospect that he himself would soon go to sleep. This, however, was not to be, for he made a superhuman effort and shut off his stream of eloquence. And now a horrible tumult arises which sounded like the souls of the wicked clamoring for ice. But there was no alarm. It was only the lament of the college organ groaning under the oppression of U Billy " Gates, who had perhaps by mistake let fall some portion of his anatomy on the key- board. It was nothing unusual, and the service proceeded. r""' I I I -:Iwi f alll' My .. ii' J 'id'-' l ffl li.

Four venerable men stepped forward, took the contribution plates and began the usual round. Things went on briskly, and soon the Freshman plate was nearly over- flowing with pennies. Suddenly the peaceful air of the assembly was rudely broken by a crash and the sound of rolling coins. There was almost a stampede. Conjectures regarding the cause of the accident are numerous. Some say that a quarter was by some mistake dropped in the plate, others, that the accident was merely a result of the unusual collection of sounds issuing at that moment from the scene of Billy's lacerations. Personally, we are inclined to the latter opinion, espe- cially since those near the scene of the accident say that " Old Doc " was heard to exclaim " That-ahem music "! at the time of the catastrophe. -AS The Amherst Millennium HEN a walk has been constructed up through Grosvie's to the Lab, Aud when the chapel clock keeps perfect timeg When at last the postal cards shall come no more from Staab, And cutting church shall cease to be a crimeg Or, when the Amherst license vote is settled with a yes, And the Faculty Quartet shall sing a song At which the crows don't Hy awayg when these things come, I guess We 'll all have whiskers three or four feet long. f 169 X The Charge at Brattleboro yxtfggg 455 fx A ff ff fbi, f .L 1.

In fact Bullock had made a bet with Spining that the Williams team would score at least thirty runs. Pratt, alias Peck, was in the box for Naughty-Naught, at least Pratt took all the credit for it when he returned, and we were deceived. Great Heavens! Pratt was bad enough when he first came to Amherst, but when he fell back into Nineteen-Hundred - words can- not express the thought. A fallen angel must be something like Pratt fallen into Nineteen-Hundred. Flichtner was the doughty leader of the freshmen, while Spining stood up behind the plate, presumably to catch the ball when Pratt had pitched it. just what good Spining did, nobody has yet found out for the ball never went by the Williams batters, and indeed, Spining wouldhave been loath to touch it. Nineteen-Hundred got in five runs, nobody knows how, and were very jubilant because the Williams freshmen got only fifteen. Only fifteen, Naughty-Naught, you have reason to be proud of your skill, and if there is any game which you can play a little better than you do baseball you should let us know at once. 172 His Crime NOT all Sundays are remarkable: it is the same forcible sermon Cthat is, we are forced to hear ity, the same calendar notices and the same invitation to stay and hear Prexyis passed round, but that Sunday was an exception. The sermon was so good that only Nick Moore and Hatch went to sleep, and Old Doc kept one eye openg the organ, too, was on its good behavior, and pirouetted off on an independent key but once 5 which all goes to show that occasionally a compulsory church service can be made successful. It was Prexy's Bible class, however, that was the dis- tinguishing feature of the clay. Prexy's " ad " that the preacher of the morning would speak, and that free Bibles would be passed round, induced a total of fifteen to stay. 'It may be well to state that the class meets for forty-live minutes. Prexy prefaced the remarks of the preacher from New York in a modest little speech of thirty-live minutes, entitled, " What Isawg or, Around the world in thirty-five min . M f -- e in 'nf l' utes." He spoke feelingly of sitting on the' apex of an Egyptian Pyramid for three hours, and with great power described how he sat on the summit of Mt. Wash- ington six hours waiting for a sensation. Finally he wound up by remarking that Mr. -- had still ten minutes. The latter gentlemanis intentions were much better than his words, as he said with all the innocence of a man untutored in the life of the college, " I wish your president would keep on diffusing such sweet atmosphere." That minister has not come to Amherst since, and probably never will. QE Derwall Makes a Partial Analysis of Phelps DERWALL : - Um-ah, next Phelps 5 how many non-metals are there?

The Amherst fire department has just arrived, and after spending the short space of forty minutes in settling who shall wear the only rubber coat, at last clear for action. Not a moment too soon, for there are now four sparks, which shine terrible and foreboding. Water is now being poured on the doomed house at the rate of two quarts and a pint a minute. A woman rushes' wild- eyed from the smoking house, bearing in her arms a crying child, and with the natural feeling of a motherly, unerring instinct, makes straight for Keith, '98. After one glance into his kindly face, she deposits the precious burden in his loving arms, and is off. With Spartan courage Keith seizes the child, and, content with the knowledge that he has saved a life, looks the admiring throng in the face. Poets tell of the bloody plains of Liicknow, of Thermopylze's narrow pass, of Brattleboro's steep stairs, yet we are sure that no courage ever displayed at these crises can compare itself to the marvellous heroism of Keith of '98. if u OMMY Flaherty, passing the Episcopal Church very late one dark night, was seen to light a match and very gravely hold it aloft in order to see what time it was by the church clock. as , Tell Us HAT did Ralph Eliot hatch ?

" We 'll proceed to elections," the president said, 't The first is the captain to stand at the head And show the green freshman the way it is done And help on the others who 've lately begun." Then Ellsworth and Tracy, and Miles, called " the wise," Looked round them, despair showing plain in their eyes, For none of them knew how to fence for a ---, Though each was full eager to try at the sham. Then balloted they, and each member did cast One vote for himself. Thus, indeed, to the last Might the fun have gone on were it not for a scheme Which solved the tough question, and yet ituwould seem To others in college all perfect and square. As captain they voted for Miles, called "the wise," Who made them a smile of unusual size. Next, Ellsworth they chose for the president's chair, A unanimous vote 't was that settled him there.

The first to arrive at the scene of the conflagration was josh Billings, at the head of a body of students. Fascinated, they gazed at the flames licking the tinder walls. Across the street stood, in all its majesty, the engine house, home of the Amherst fire department, and within a few moments, hatless and coatless firemen were seen hurrying in its direction. Chief Harlan, with a great presence of mind, dispatched a minion to Paige's for the fiery chargers, in the meantime the harness was arranged for their reception. Some thoughtless student suggested that a length of hose be attached to the hydrant there, and the nozzle be dragged across the street within reach of the flames. Chief Harlan crushed him with .a look of biting scorn, turned to his men and-cried in clarion tones, U Die at your posts if need be, my men, but don't-" here he was interrupted by a succession of thuds, and the minion appeared driving the chargers before him with a barrel stave. Now the wonderful discipline of the Amherst City Fire Department was in evidence, and in a moment those fearless men were in their places on the engine, not an instant of delay, , - 4.1 save only to search for and don their rubber ' " coats, and they were off. The crowd parted to right and left as the engine dashed madly across the street. Men yelled and women fainted, and the firemen leaped from their places, ready for the fray. Chief Harlan, worthy leader of a worthy team, seizing the hose, rushed forward with intrepid courage, and the flames would have fied before his fearful onslaught, had they not already been extinguished several minutes before by a chemical grenade from the Purity Bakery. ISO A .Lecture in College Hall MANY have doubtless been astonished, as well as mystified, at the modus oper- amlz' of a lecture in College Hall. The management is very simple, and some start- ling results have, in truth, but very ordinary causes. A lecture takes place something after this stereotyped form. - Five hours before the appointed ' ' u time for the lecture, janitor Gates, with his minions, begins to thaw the 1. ice from the furnace doors, and after 5 much hard labor generally succeeds ' in causingafew coals to ignite.. This is the first step. From now on all is f 5 mem, wk - I -5 Dy 3, Ri, 4. bustle and confusion. Some enter- j -.5 prising person secures a team and ' 'ns' -' : IT' ' goes the round of the Faculty houses 1, 1 V 7 QI!!! to collect a lamp, a table, a rug, and KT- Ui! two cushioned chairs to decorate the stage. These articles are, of course, only extras, as the permanent scenery is so tasteful and so artistically arranged that there is indeed but little need of further adornment. Early the crowd begins to pour in, and Janitor Gates takes his usual station beside the door, watching with the keen eye of a detective, every personfwho enters. When all are seated and the room is quiet, Prexy, followed by his modest lecturer, marches up the centre aisle, the cynosure of all eyes. This always occa- sions prolonged applause. During the lecture, suggestions are frequently offered by the president to the speaker. A glass of water is placed on the table, but near the lamp to prevent freezing, and Prexy buttons his ulster close around his neck and puts on his fur gloves. Any witty remark made by the speaker is always sure of a hearty applause, as this is the only way the audience has of keeping warm. As soon as the lecturer has ceased speaking, Janitor Gates rushes to the main and turns out the gas. In the darkness we make our way out, while Prexy and his guest are left to grope their way out among the overturned settees. 46 Current Phrases Among the Sophomores, Spring Term " SAY, got your ' Nungy' essay written "?

It was on that same eventful night that sundry men of Amherst, after listening to the concert, were imbued with a divine spirit of song, notwithstanding that they had never been troubled that way before, and indeed but one of them even, Jay Clark Bissel, could sing, according to the general acceptation of the verb. Yet, moved by the above mighty impulse, together they wended their way to the Smith campus, and reclining on the snow in great picturesqueness, gave way to tender melody. The maidens heard the sound, for the air was full of song, and said to themselves - " How sweet! The Yale Glee Club is serenading usf' So they gathered together sundry bouquets and such like things and cast them forth. And lo! those same students did reap a great harvest and departed rejoicing. And behold, in a little time came they of Yale, but like the foolish virgins, they came late, and the flowers were gone, as it were. .So they departed also .into outer daxkness, and there was weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Harrington V THE following is 'clipped from the Springfield Rrpubliran of June 1. Rev. E. G. Cobb offered prayer, and Howard W.-Harrington, a Junior at Amherst College, gave astirring address. He paid a rich tribute to the valor and patriotism of the old soldiers and urged the younger generations to sustain their noble example of patriotism. " The third day at Gettysburg " was his theme, and he contrasted this battle with"Marathon and Waterloo, his powers of description being decidedly graphic. The singing of " America " closed the exercises. The OLIo board wishes to heartily commend the wisdom of the arrange- ment committee in offering prayer at such a crucial moment. The curiosity of the board being aroused at the reference to Mr. Harring- ton's powers of graphic description, we secured at tremendous expense the manuscripts of his two lectures, and we commend the following gleanings : - " The sun went down behind the hill that day in a pool of blood." " The Papal bull came hissing over the field of battle .... That day Martin Luther burned the bull of the Pope." "Picture to yourselves the hissing of the infuriated beast-his cries of anguish, and the sizzling of burning tiesh. See! he bares his greedy fangs and hurls himself upon the foe."

Suddenly there appeared in the doorway a young lady, her face beaming with smiles, bearing a. cup of steaming hot water, and in a pleasing voice she said " W0n't you have a cup of cocoa, Mr. I-b?

Among other ingenious ways for beguiling the timid shekel, was an informal ballot, at a nickel a vote, for the homeliest man present. As the evening drew to a close, excitement ran high over the contest, and only when the result was announced was there any certainty that the right would triumph. Duncan, ,99, carried off the prize. He had been hard pressed by an " Aggie " aspirant, but, as usual, the " Purple and White " triumphed. From a pile of auctioned pumpkins Duncan expressed his appreciation to the assembled vil- lage maidens in a neatly-turned speech, and was received with an old Amherst yell from various Amherst men present. 'Twas a night worthy to be set down in college annals - another glorious Amherst victory ! QE CLARKE, Igor :-Mr. Fosdick, I hear you are going to try and manage the baseball team this year.

To an observant person the constantly recurring scenes of life present an object lesson worthy of the highest consideration. Such a person profits by the mishaps to his less fortunate brothers and guards against their pitfalls in his own pathway. The results of excess and extravagance, as demonstrated by example, are avoided, and the creature contemplates, with greater reverence, the wondrous works of the Creator. All are liable to accident. We are be- set by dangers on all sides, It may come to us while bicycling, row- ing, driving, golfing, or in the pursuit of other athletic reereations. Ou the street, in our homes, or places of business, we may meet with injury. Now here is where the observant person shows his ability to grasp a situation. He knows there is not hing' he can pro- cure to allay his pains, heal his wounds, remove all effects of violent exercise and cure the bites of insects, chafing, sun- burn, itching or burning skin, like the remedy of his fathers, POND'S EX- TRACT, the family remedy for all pain. Gheapness does not imply merit, and it always pays to get the best. Be observant! Do not allow unseru u- lous dealers to sell you something else, under any pretense. They are only consulting their own pecuniary welfare, not yours. Look for our name on every label and wrapper. POND'S EXTRACT CO..
