CmUM im fill Mill ; M 111 l[j ffiiMlnl ' M », ' HUH T» ft BhfajJ i =25 8 - By FOREWORD The fairies flittering from earth to skv. Winging their way where the song birds fly. With their tiny hands and their magic wands Are helpers of nature in the deeds she performs. They borrow from the sky a space of blue. Which makes the heart of the blue-bell true; They partake of the radiance of the setting sun, And color the roses when the day lias begun: patch of gold sunshine on the distant hill. Is snuggled in the heart of a daffodil; They gather from the deeps the bright pearls round And scatter them as dewdrops on the morning ground. In these and many and many other ways The fairies throughout all the livelong days. Gather the treasures that lie all around — Nature ' s wonders that by mortals aren ' t found. And place them before us that we may see How beautiful are all things -if we wish them to be. We ask, dear friends, that you observe us this way. As compilers of nature ' s gifts day by day. And remember, if you wish this book beautiful to seem, You will only its niceties and beauties glean. MARIE NELSON. Editor-in-Chiej.

Two other sons then come our way, Our quiet path to cheer: Jameson and Gib-son — " a lucky day, " We say, as they draw near. We hasten then down to the road, Relying on our screen, the hedge ; But we did not see the little Ford, With a sharp-eyed driver whose name is Edge. When suddenly ' round the corner it swings, And Henry, we know, he surely saw; Our funeral bell the Board then rings, And well we know we are Dun-for(d.). We wade in trouble as deep as the Jordan, For all of which we begin to sigh; When ' long comes a Miller, and tips his hat ; We holler back, we don ' t know why. A clandestine meeting with a Striplin(g) ' ! Our conduct they will not Stand-for(A) ; Whether he studies Code(y) or Kipling, Whether a Mason or Brewer — we broke the law. We ' re restricted students of the school, Our remorse is something tierce; We shed enough tears to fill a Poole. We ' 11 add one soon, tho ' money ' s Seearee. But cheer soon comes — it ceases to rain, We ' ll never again be so rash; But become much interested in Ann Hassel (tane), — But why this vision of a mustache? But we all love our Anderson School, And love as well our Orion; Tho ' our government has much of a rule, It ' s as strong and staunch as a Lyon. So may our school be as a Hightower, Above the clouds in the light ; Each girl feel indeed the meaning of ' ' our, " And keep its record always White.

Senior Class Histor WIIKX Anderson College had been in existence only one year, good reports of this wonderful now institution had been spread abroad over the State, and reached many homes which wore considering the question of " What College? " Instantly the solution came, and eighteen ambitious sojourners decided to join the onward march at Anderson. Now, as our already numbered days too quickly draw to their close, we realize the infinite wisdom of our decision. We look back with sincerest pleasure upon our career at Anderson College. During our four years we have seen our Alma Mater emerge from childhood into womanhood, from weakness into strength, and from a small lighthouse to an educational force and power which shall leave its indelible imprint upon the characters of all who shall linger under the shadow of its flag. Among our class of eighteen Freshmen there were found the • " gloomy, gloom- ier, gloomiest " ; the " bright, brighter, brightest " ; the " blue, bluer, bluest " ; and the " wise, wiser, wisest " ; but we all very early developed into the " green, greener, greenest. " for the conviction soon came in ghostliest terms that Anderson College offers no " royal road to learning. " And oh! what a glamor that cast over us! Some fell by the wayside with that horrible Freshman malady of home-sick- ness; some decided that perhaps they were needed to help mother; others, that life would be much better without four years of college work, anyhow; and all con- cluded that a college diploma was not worth the course paid in Freshman math. But all these eccentricities lasted only for a while. With the pull and spur of upper-classmen, and the constant push and encouragement from our instructors. we very soon reset our pace toward the goal id ' Sophistry. Before reaching it, however, many " sloughs of despond " were passed through. It seemed for a while as if Freshman math, would bury us " beneath the sods " in isosceles triangles, polyhedrons, prisms, and parallelopipeds, with such monsters as sines, cotangents, and logarithms. At a day appointed we had a life and death encounter with these dragons. Victory was the result and socn we were ready to pass out of our first year at college with much mental acumen, but greatly in need of mental and physical invigoration. When we returned as Sophomores in the fall it was not as the wise, sagacious creature who " knows and knows he knows. " as most are shown up to be: nor as the foolish who " knows not and knows not he knows not " ; nor as the sleepy who " knows and knows not be knows " : but rather as the eager, wide-awake, and teachable who " knows not and knows he knows not. " (All due credit given to the faculty.) Our second year was rattier a happy one. We were al thai mile-post where to turn back was impossible, fur a pale gleam of the Senior Star could hazily be seen in the distance. We quickly learned our mission as Sophomores, and all our spare moments the year through were speirl in pulling the Freshmen, who were passing through the ordeals essential to a first year al college. Since 1914 our class has become mosl marvelous. We have some who must have been " bom great, " some who " achieved greatness, " and certainly a few " who have had greatness thrust upon them. " Sixteen new girls have joined us. four of them having " starred " in other colleges. Misses .(ones and Turner have come to us from the Woman ' s College of Richmond, Miss Jones being a graduate of thai institution. Limestone College, in Gaffney, blessed us with two " shiners " this year. Miss Richardson and Miss Truluck. Miss Truluck has a diploma from there in art. Miss lYmlt and Miss Bolt have so excelled in the study of music that they are able to bring forth musical strains by a mere glance at the keys. Miss Turner and Miss Jones have achieved so much in the study of expression that soon their renown will be voiced by the waves of the Pacific. This spring we considered ourselves fortunate in having Misses King and Riley, the intellectual stars of the class, to leave their homes in the city and cast their lot with us. The poetic verse of these two genii have caused many a glancing eye to rest upon the pages of our Orion,. There is also among our class of twenty-two. three presidents of societies, the Editor- in-chief of the Orion, the business manager of the Orion . the president of the Athletic Association, the business manager of the Annual, the captain of the ' varsity basket- hall team, and many " Madam Modistes. " and scientific housekeepers. We have not only swept the fields of oratory, music, literature, expression, and poetry, but have won honors on the athletic field as well. A silver loving-cup be- longs to us this year as a result of a victory over the class teams in a basketball contest on November 20th. Now. at the close of our sojourn here, we stand at the threshold of another life wifTTjust one thing to lament. — that some of those who started with us found it necessary to pitch their tents in other places. We have reached the place of the long-looked-for Senior star, but it is gone. It is somewhere in the far distant future, shedding a little ray of light in one place over a country school-room full of eager little faces, in another over a hospital ward full of the suffering, and there perhaps over a bungalow near a church-yard, and yonder over a mission in far- away China. How we would love to turn back ! But we must follow thy guiding. Oh, Senior Star. Star of our Life. We take our departure now. not with tear-stained faces, but with faces bright with future hopes. We leave to the under-classmen our best wishes, and with pledges of undying devotion and never-ending loyalty to our Alma Mater, we pass out singing as never before: ' . I ml. I ho ' ire lean 1 liiee, We ' ll never grieve thee : True to our trust we ' ll be. Our best endeuror, Now and forever, Always In honor thee. " WlLMA ErVIK. Historian. ., PR THE train was speeding along through the lovely scenery of Southern California. But I was not interested in the scenery. I was thinking about the last time T had been this way. It was five years ago — five years since I had left my Southern home and had gone to Alaska as a teacher. Naturally, I was impatient to get back with relatives and friends, especially my classmates, for I had left only a few weeks after graduation, and had not had a chance to talk over school days with any one. I was suddenly roused from my reverie by a sudden jolt of the car — as unex- pected lurch, a plunge, and then I slowly realized that something tight was around my head, which ached dreadfully, and that I wasn ' t on the car. but in a hospital. I moved a little, and a soft, soothing voice said, " Don ' t try to move; just lie still and rest and try to sleep. You were hurt in a wreck and we ' re taking care of you ; so try to rest. " Where had I heard that voice? I closed my eyes and my aching head was forgotten as a dim picture formed in my mind, — a brown-haired, brown- eyed girl, soothing another ' s aching forehead. Could it be — I opened niy eyes and tried to turn to see her, when she came to my bedside. — yes, it was Nettie ; I tried to speak, but she soothed me and told me to wait till later to say it. So. wonder- ing if it weren ' t a dream, or a nightmare, I went to sleep. When I woke up. there sat Nettie beside me. " Lura, is this really you? I can ' t realize it, " she said, " I didn ' t recognize you at first because you were nearly covered with bandages. What on earth are you doing ' way over here, so far from old South Carolina? " I ex- plained that I bad been teaching in the government schools in Alaska, and had not been home since the summer of ' 17. She told me how she had gone to Johns Hopkins and taken training as special nurse in nervous diseases, finishing in ' 21: and was now head nurse in the famous Grantt Fisher Sanitarium of Los Angeles. During the days of my convalescence, I was almost glad I had been among the injured ones, for by that round about way. I had finally managed to get my name in the newspapers and friends from far and near wrote to me. One morning I was doubly happy, for the postman brought me letters from Wilms and Nora. Tim " i( had been onl-y two weeks since I had lieard from Wilma, she seemed almost a different u ' iH, ,) miii ' h had happened in these two weeks. She had finished at the W. M. I . Training School at Louisville, Ky.. had been appointed as missionary I " Japan and what ' s more, had taken the one remaining step and had become Mrs. Edwards. She told me, I " " , that Mary Bowie and Brucie had taken teaching only as " stepping- stones to higher things, " and were both to be married in June. Nora was play- ground supervisor with the Redpath Chautauqua, and such glaring tales as she did tell. I wondered who had the most. fun. Xora or the children; she was certainly enthusiastic and crazy about her work. But the biggest surprise came one morning when I was sitting oul on the veranda and Net brought a visitor — liessie I ' ruitt, the same little brown-eyed, eurlv- h aired girl, the baby of our class. She was the pianist of the Celebrated Danarmo Quintette of the Alkahest Lyceum, and was just finishing her first season with them. She was perfectly delighted with her work, and seemed supremely contented, of course, since she did nothing but play the piano. One Sunday morning, while glancing over the Neio York Times, a familiar face smiled at me from the page, [nstantly I recognized Annie Laurie, and the article below told that she had recently won the national golf championship. 1 wasn ' t sur- prised when I remembered what a devotee of all outdoor sports she was at A. C. I remained under Nettie ' s protecting care for three weeks; then loath to go and yet anxious. I went on to South Carolina. One day. to brighten the monotony, 1 bought several magazines to read. Incidentally I turned to the short stories and was struck with the good common-sense thoughts in one entitled " Just a Butterfly. " a short-story attack against the woman who is only a " butterfly, " and some undenia- bly strong arguments for woman suffrage. Curious. I turned to see who was the author, and was proud and surprised to. see that it was Gertrude .Tones, better known as Sallie. In glancing through the Atlanta Jownal I chanced to pause at the glaring headlines " With the Divorce Courts. " and aeeidently ran across the familiar name of Hose Edge. 1 read this article, " Miss Eose Edge has recently been admitted to the liar: She is the third woman lawyer of Atlanta and bids fair to keep her opponents of the stronger sex on their watchout. " Further comment told of her brilliant career in the law school of Princeton: of her success in several compli- cated divorce suits and of her bright future as a prominent member of the bar. Slowly the train drew near home, and familiar places were called out. I changed trains in Seneca. ' When I entered the car, it was almost full, and seeing a vacant seat beside a stylishly-dressed lady, I asked if it was taken. An exclama- tion of surprise broke from me as I recognized Janie Stewart. We were both ask- ing questions at the same time, hut 1 finally managed to tell her enough of myself to get her to talking. She gave me a smart little business card that explained a good deal: " Mine. Janie Stewart, Modiste. Fifth Avenue, New York. " She had spent three years studying under the fashion masters and designers and was now owner and manager of an exclusive shop for ladies ' Parisian gowns. She was on her way to Brucie ' s wedding, going a little early to put the final touches to the bride ' s trousseau, which she had in charge. She told me most of the plans for the wedding. Willie Wray, no longer Miss Robinson, but Mrs. F. 1ST. Westcott. of Jack- sonville, was to he matron of honor; Janet was to play the wedding march; she had Ws iiilMlMllfe « ..T S gMiii S pJfc finished in Boston the season before and, with her husband, Dr. Yon Eeinlc, was to have charge of the Conservatory of Music ;it A. ( ' . the next session. I asked her if she knew any of the plans for Mary ' s wedding ami she said she only knew thai Ina. expert caterer of Atlanta, had charge of the refreshments, and thai Maude, now the leading decorator and designer of Charleston, had charge of the decorating; she added thai both Ina and Maude are girls for old A. ( ' . to be proud of; she had heard that Byrd, modiste of St. Louis, had designed the trousseau. Two weeks later. I quieth stepped into a remote corner of the parlor of Mary ' s home and eagerly awaited the appearance of the bride. The familiar strains of Mendelssohn ' s " •Wedding March " came to us. and as we waited, little daintily- dressed flower girls came in; then the bridesmaids, and one of them was Bernice. .Tust before the bride came Blanche, matron of honor, for my neighbor informed me that she was Mrs. Harold Willis, of Greenville. Then came Mary, the same old Mar) ' , with her same sweet smile, and 1 wondered who would not have smiled sweetly when 1 saw the one to whom she bad given her heart and hand. — James Milton, the leading architect of Greenville. Later Blanche. Bernice and 1 bad a long chat. Bernice was teacher of expres- sion in the Woman ' s College of Richmond. " ' Well, what has become of our two Margarets? " 1 asked. " ' Haven ' t you heard of how Margaret Clement made her- self famous. " they asked in surprise. " " She has formulated and proved its worth by carrying it out in the practice, a new method of teaching. All the leading educators sav its the only real method of solving the old perplexing problems that were con- sidered hopeless. ' " That girl ' s a genius! " they asserted. " " And old Mary Riley ' s making herself heard from, too, " they continued. " She ' s writing some of the deepest books; books dealing with practical psychology, philosophy, and ethics. She is being complimented and honored by professors and deep thinkers every- where. " " And Margaret Byruin. what of her? " 1 asked. 1 found out then that Margaret had taken an A.M. at Columbia and specialized in English, and then had accepted the chair of English at our Alma Mater, though it was doubtful how long she would have it. as the science professor seemed to have had a marked influence over her. So Fate had been kind and generous to our class of ' 17: each one seemed " just as happy as happy could be. " Even if we could, we need not say, " Backward, turn backward, time, in your flight; make me a college girl again, just for tonight, " — for we are still the same happy, loving class of ' 17, loyal and devoted to our dear old Alma Mater.

I lay my cheek to thee. And thy heart leaps out to meet my own ; Mine sings with thine, and I understand The mystery and magic of thy music. In other trees the bitter blasts Are threatful, gloomy, sad; But in thy boughs they soften, And for me are warming, glad. Sometimes it is the echo Of the far-off restless sea, or the croon Of a mother, lulling the violets That live and nestle at thy feet. When the wind plucks off their leafy caps, And their wide blue eyes are turned to thee, They speak their modesty in love, And worship thee with bright, uplifted faces. So I, my pines, do love thee, And seek thy shelter green; For there I learn my noblest thoughts, And wondrous things have seen. M.

' . . " . __ itlfflMfe Junior Class History AT the opening of the third year at Anderson College, the present Junior class came into being. Looking hack to that year when we were Freshmen, we smile a?: we recall how our lofty ideals were ridiculed by those above us Nevertheless we fought bravely th rough the dark ages. When we returned the following fall, how changed we all were and how differ- ently we looked upon our college career! This change was only the sign that we were Sophomores and hence realized our importance. It was during this year that we were constantly called upon for essays, debates and short talks in class. How proud we were that we were able to master so well the different subjects required of Sophomores ! Since we are Juniors we try to appear as such by concealing the wisdom of Sophomores and delaying the dignity of Seniors. As a class we are hound together by the strongest of ties and are liberal supporters of the best interests of the college. As we advance higher up the path of knowledge we begin to see in the distance that goal we long to reach. Kathleen Burkiss, Historian. Junior Days Gone By Our Junior year is ended, We ' ve knowledge great amassed, And when we back to college come, We ' ll lie ;is Seniors classed. Now through vacation ' s sunny days We ' ll crowd fun in each minute, For every girl has got her beau — His auto — she ' ll live in it. No time to think of books and all — That vast amount of knowledge Will keep until vacation ends, And we return to college. We ' ve chums so dear, and friends galore, So every single lass Will say " goodbye " with vast regrets, To that dear Junior class. Grave Seniors have no time for fun ; On dignity they stand. For they must leave their name ' s imprint Deep in memory ' s sand. As we gaze into Life ' s mirror, Do we see within the glass, As many happy faces As in our Junior class? Ruth Hembree, Poet. An Ideal Evening o Till ' ' , bright, sunny clay, with it various signs of spring ' s return, is now slowly coming to an end. The big, reel sun. which through the day lias been giving forth light ami heat, lias just completed its journey from the distant east. and in its diurnal motion is now slowly setting above the western horizon, .lust as this great, luminous body is slowly sinking, its magical rays arc portraying, color- ing and making fanciful nature ' s beauty. In looking toward the west beyond the tall trees on the distant hills, are seen the beautiful glowing colors of the spectrum, accompanied by a purplish counter glow in the east. As the sun lias grown weak and faint, it is now aide to give nut only a dazzling stream of light which robes the meadows, hills and plains in a veil id ' deepest mystery. On the verdant hills the tall, graceful trees are boldly standing robed in their new. ay garments, which the coming of spring has fashioned. An added lustre is given to their apparel by the hushed rays of the sinking sun. which is gently shed upon them. These same rays find their way. through the trees on the hillside to the river ' s edge. There is but a dim light which reaches the river, but in this light is force enough to apparently transform the waters to an unreal world. The light becomes weaker and fainter, and alas! the big, round sun is gone. It is now twilight, and a solemn stillness pervades the whole universe. Mother Earth, with her strong, outstretched arms, is slowly gathering her noisy children within their fold, just as " the ben gathereth her brood. " There is a silent watch being kept. Each minute seems longer and becomes more death-like in its stillness. The tender, green leaves have ceased their stir among the trees. No longer are beard the lullaby songs, which the little birds sing as they flit from place to place hunting food for their babes. These little birds have sought and found their night ' s abode in the strong- houghs of the forest trees. There are no crickets, no croaking frogs, and no sign of life save the faint glare of burning lights, that can be seen from the farm-house windows. Idle undisturbed air signifies peace and quietness. The sweet, gentle fragrance of the wild woodland flowers perfumes the meadows and plains. In the clear, bine sky. the slender moon is slowly rising from behind the hills and is touching them gently with its tender light, which gives them the appearance of the sombreness and stillness of a star-lit night. Xot long is the moon in the heaven alone, for the little twinkling stars slowly make their appearance one by one. and begin to play hide and seek with the moon. It is just as this unbroken silence becomes filled with the mystery and awe of the evening, when the landscape becomes fainter and fainter and at last the twi- light fades into a dark and gruesome night.

" The histories of many H people ami nations are mosl wonderfully filled with the mosl importanl anil marvelous happenings. There is no history, however, made by the inhabi- tants of any State or nation thai is more rilled with " wars and rumors of war " than is the history made l v the inhabitants of a college. We find recorded the same things thai are true of other greai nations and peo- ple. There are times of war ami times of peace; there are uprisings ami rebellions; there are days of plenty ami alas! days of famine as well. This " strange ami eventful history " di iiles it sell ' into lour illustrious periods — Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior. Of these there is none who is not aware which of the four is more to be desired. There is no one who doubts that never is life sweeter or knowledge more certain than while we are passing through that era when we call ourselves Sophomores. We, the class id ' nineteen hundred and nineteen, have entered upon that era of our history. Sixteen there are whom the gods have smiled upon, and have placed in this happy state. — sixteen who call themselves Sophomores. In order to become Sophomores, of course, we had to be Freshmen. So in September of nine- teen hundred and fifteen we submitted to the ordeal and matriculated as Freshmen. For one blessed year, nine long and weary months, together we endured the intel- lectual stai ' e of the Senior, the Junior ' s look of wisdom, and the pitying gaze of the Sophomores. All this we endured, yea ! and more, too; all this we suffered that we might become Sophomores. And now l hat long-looked-for day has been realized. It is well worth .ill the trials and hardships through which we bad to pass. We are more than happy with our state. In fact so contented are we that we really wonder, " Why, after all. do we have to become Juniors? " But then we reflect, • " do not they owe all they are to us? " Without the confidence and courage acquired when Sophomores they could never have had the courage to launch out and attempt the perils of Seniordom. " Toui liii ' ii mi rn ' ii. " Everything well or nothing. That is our motto! There is no need to ask whether we live up to it. There is nothing that we do that we do not do well. We are Sophomores ! Lucy McPhail, Historian. W t The Lesson of the Song-Birds As I sat beside my window. Looking at the falling rain, I noticed two small birdies Just outside the window pane. They were singing merrily, As tho ' they did not mind the rain, " While I sat there wishing That the sun would shine again. Then other songbirds warbled, Not so very far away, And as they chirped their love notes, They, too, seemed blithe and gay. As I listened to a robin, Not a note did he complain, While I sat there wishing That the sun would shine again. I was somber, sad and dreary, As I listened to the rain, And wondered how the little birds Could ever sing again. But as I listened longer, I, too, began to sing, For I had learned a lesson From the bird notes of the spring. Dorcas Kay.

There was history, mediaeval and modern, Heroic deeds we did read. But we could not put them into practice, When heroic deeds we did need. Science was not, quite to our liking; To the comets and stars we did soar. As of old, like some sealoving Viking. Came we back with a sniff anil a roar.

Well, come back to see me sometime, dear. Thank yon so much for bringing my letter. " " And now, " continued Beryl. " 1 will read you my dear, adorable letter, ' cause 1 know you arc a special, and from dear old Jan, now ain ' t lie the best ever? " ••Why. it was only last February that he sent me that lovely little gold card- ease, and 1 was only sixteen, too! My! lie ' s been liking me quite a spell — I — ob Beryl Dickins! shut your eyes and guess what ' s t ' allin " out of that envelope! If it ain ' t a ring! a real amethyst ring, you may slap my face: now ain ' t Jan an angel! I ' d just love to kiss lvim for it right now. be is such a — sh ! somebody ' s comin ' in — goodness ! " An old-fashioned teapot, with a large round spout stood on the table. It was a queer piece of antiquity given to Beryl by her grandmother. She had brought it with her when the came to Stanley College two years ago. and it bad been a staunch friend to Beryl in time of tea ever since. Into the mouth of that brown spout went Jan ' s letter, also Jan ' s lovely ring, just as the door opened, and Mert and Dell came bursting in with news of the feast that was to he held that night in Fthel Dort ' s room. Xow folks may say that Beryl was quite conscious of where she put her letter and ring, and that this story is all a joke, but I beg you to refrain from referring to your psychological lore — and believe with me for a little while, that Beryl really was unconscious of her actions, and really couldn ' t remember where she had put the letter and ring, for that ' s what really did happen. It is not so strange, or extra- ordinary, anyway. Why. 1 have known people, especially old people who wore spectacles, to look the whole house over in search of their supposedly lost " glasses. " and at the end of the search, have someone inform them that their vision-promoting agent was calmly resting on their forehead. Yes. So Beryl lost her ring and letter. Beryl cried, of course, but it didn ' t produce the lost property. 1 might add that she searched every nook and corner of her room ; " nothin ' doin ' . " It isn ' t very pleasant to lose a gift at any time, and especially when you know that in just two days, you are going to stand before the giver, who happens to be a person you like very much. Oh gee! such a thought is a stunner, it was to Beryl. For she knew that in just two days she would be at home preparing for her Valen- tine tea party, that mother had promised her Christmas, as a birthday present, there being only two days between her birthday and Valentine day. The facts stood out plain and daring. On the 14th of February, there was Jan to face with excuses and explanations. Oh. it was horrible! She could say that she had not received any mail from him. hut he would have it traced, and well — anvwav Beryl wasn ' t that kind. Oh. she would have to say Iv I 111 N llll sin ;in nlil -she had lost it. What did SO much want .Inn !( I ir11i(l;i ys and Valentine WOUlCl think well i days anyway her? Oh, what her! Oh, she wished lint wishing didn ' t do the hare, ug ' lv thing — she had lost it. What would tie think there wasn ' t any good. [t was a sad little Beryl girl that left Stanley College on the t :50 train, Feb- ruary 13th. Not a! all the bright, dashing Beryl that bad come back on the 3rd of January, to begin a happy New Year. The train seemed to go awfully fast. Somehow she dreaded going home. She was so afraid Jan would meet her at the station. Jan wmild have been there, if he could have had his way. but Fords " ill have their way sometimes, and it happened that Jan ' s Ford had decided to stop on the way, and divulge its secrets and trouble to the tender, clinging heart of a great mud bole. So Beryl reached luauc in safety. Beryl ' s mother had the home in beautiful order. In the parlor were swinging loops of tiny red hearts, with a tiny cupid peep- ing from the center of each loop. Great bowls of blooming hyacinths were betrayed by the rich perfume that filled the room. These were Beryl ' s favorite flowers, and her mother had them as a surprise for Beryl. That night Beryl went to bed and did something she had not done for three nights — she slept soundly. She did not even dream of the lost ring and letter. The next day she was busy preparing the refreshments she was to serve that night. She made dainty heart-shaped sandwiches and little pink and white cakes. Late in the afternoon, while Beryl was in the parlor arranging little fortune bags, filled with fruits and mints, around in conspicuous places, to be found by the guests, her mother called from the kitchen. ' " Oh, Beryl, did you bring your teapot home? We wil l need it. von know, to serve tea. " " Yes. mother, and I had most forgotten about it. I will get it in a minute. It ' s i my suit case. 1 knew we would need it. so I brought it along. " The minute lengthened into an hour before Beryl again thought of the teapot. Three or four guests had already arrived, but she slipped away, and running to her room, found the delayed teapot, and was soon in the kitchen filling it with hot tea. Her task performed, she placed if with the other refreshments on the little sewing- table in the dining-room and ran back to the parlor to welcome three other guests who had just come. Jan had not yet arrived, and Beryl was secretly hoping he would not come at all, yet she knew she was hoping in vain. Fight o ' clock, eight-thirty, nine, and still no Jan. Plainly it was time to serve the tea. Beryl led the way into the dining-room with a thankful heart, and shaking knees. But. oh, she did want to see Jan! " Bessie, you and Joe will find your places at the end of the table. Lucy, you and Jack here at my right. You will all find your places by looking at your piace cards. " " And whose place is that reserved there by you. Beryl? You ' re not going to eat alone, are you? " teased Jack Dess. " That ' s all right, Mr. Dess. you sit there by Lucy. I am ready to pour the tea ' now. " " Sun ' , mid we are waiting, hungry as — " Irish James Mahon was interrupted b the ringing of the dour bell. " ] bet that ' s Jan right now. Watch Beryl blush! (ice! Wish I had someone in blush for me, " sighed Clarence Kent. Beryl, in her excitement, had started to pour the tea, but mind you. that tea would not jitmr. o! Horrors upon horrors, surely she had had enough trouble without this added embarrassment. But still no tea came. (Hi my; no wonder; why what ' s that in the spout? Paper? A letter: good heavens: her ling and letter! Just in time, too. for .Ian was that moment hanging his cap in the hall. Beryl, child, slip thai ring on your linger and swallow the letter. Xow. there, that ' s it. Well, that ' s all right, stick it in your belt, now! Goody! Goody! Good ! " Oh. I ' m so glad to see you, dan. 1 thought you weren ' t coming: why so later You may have me lor a partner. Xow don ' t you feel honored? " Beryl rat- tled on. not giving him time to answer, her throat getting warm and red all the while. " Surest thing you know. 1 feel honored. Rut say. you didn ' t give me your band when you said ' Hello! ' " Jan said in a time of inquiry. " Well. then. I will give it to you now. " Beryl laughed, her composure fast asserting itsel f. " Hello. Jan. I am perfectly delighted to see you. " she said in a mock, cere- monious tone. " How ' s that? " " 1 am satisfied, 1 guess. " replied Jan. lie bad only wanted to see if she was wearing his ring, and she knew it. Her heart was singing a happy little tune as she again Led the way with Jan into the dining-room. This time the tea came gladly. Everybody attributed the new gaiety ami joyous hilarity, that entered with Jan. to Jan himself, but the little brown teapot knew better. " 1 did it. I did it. I did it " it sang as the hot tea gurgled from its spout. Eleven-fifteen that night: " Beryl, dear does that teapot belong to you or vour mother, " Jan is asking. " It ' s ' mine, " answered Beryl, " Why? " " Well. I ' m very glad, it will be so nice for us to have to go to housekeeping w— " Jan ! who said we — " Hush darling, of course we are when you finish school, why I thought yon knew that all— " " Jan you ' ve got to leave this house this instant, you can ' t stay another iniii — 1 — oh Jan. please don ' t — what? — yes. I guess so: please — Indium — ni. " Slamb ! bans! eh — eh — ch — dug — chug — chug. — X. W.. Tit. -: a i; ill[i;r j | Sat x- He That Losetli FOE the firs) time in his life, Jean Lay en his back and regarded the stars. He did mil know thai they had been called the poetry of Heaven; nor, knowing, would lie have understood. They drew his eves b ecause they looked so calm and peaceful, and because they were new in him. There was a liny one righi t his head that he liked especially; il winked at him in such a Eriendly way. as if I ' m ' his amusement, thai once a faini smile crossed his face. A smile was almost a stranger to Jean ' s face, ami when it fled so quickly, the rough features were brought into startling prominence; the gray, peering eyes, almost green in the half -darkness ; the long nose, crooked just a little al the bridge; the matted, uncut hair, which matched in color the thick black heard hiding tin 1 thin-lipped mouth and receding chin; and. running diagonally along the left cheek, a. white scar. If you repeated this description to a citizen in a certain little village. Iiarce. adding that the should- ers were stooped,_ the .arms long, hands and feet very big, you would he informed that it " most certainly was .lean Moireau. . Yes. the shopkeeper. And — ah — citizen! mind when you go there. Jean is but an upstart — came from the streets. He be- lieves nobody, he watches one. he weighs too closely. Fh ! not one jot would he Still — he is pooi-. and precious little does lie make from th lie lives in one room behind — allows none else to enter — only the saints know how he does get along. Ami his eyes. M ' sieu, — keener than an eagle ' s. The scar, " and he would trace on his own left cheek the direction taken by Jean ' s scar, " — he re- ceived the blow in a light with someone who tried to steal. What a light it was! Jean killed him. too. " Then your friend, the citizen, would go on his way think- ing how completely he had outlined Jean ' s character for you. Xow, Jean ' s little shop in Barce was closed. Not for six months had he rung coins on the counter to see whether they were genuine. And he was lying out here on the edge of this great shadowy forest not far from the dusty road that wound over the hill in the distance and lost itself somewhere on the other side. And he was looking at the stars. It did seem that he ought to get up and go home, or to some place where the night dew would not fall on him. But you see Jean ' s back was hurt, and he must lie where he was. Yesterday he had wrenched it badly doing some trenching that must be completed in a very short time; but thinking it would soon stop hurting, he had mentioned it to no one. Today it had seemed better, until a little while ago, when he stumbled, rolled down a knoll and found that he could not get up. It pained him so that be finally realized the necessity of having some diversion. First, he tried digging little boles in the loose sand within easy reach of his big hairy lists; but the twisting somehow got to his back and made it worse than ever. Then his roving glance was caught and held by the tiny, twinkling star. He watched it. and the next one and the next one and on and on until he gasped to behold what myriads shone in the Heavens ; so he kept on looking. Anything to keep his eyes away from the ground ! For the road was strewn with men — men who once were tall and strong and brave, hut who now lav motionless. Jean, for all his natural indifference, could not bear to think of them. Yes, Jean had come to war. Why? Even Jean himself hardly knew. Perhaps it was because trade was getting very, very poor; perhaps because he knew he would soon have to give up the little shop; perhaps — oh, any reason would do. The thing was that lie was here ami lie saw mi way nut. At first he had fell sure that the surgeons would find him and these other men right away: hut the fierce battle had drawn the army further on and deeper into the small wilderness, ami nobody came. There was now not a sound, not an echo of firing, the rushing id ' many feet had ceased and all was still — so still .lean wanted to wear his very lungs out shouting; hut after the first few feeble at- tempts he gave up, for it racked his body sorely, lie thought though, that morning would see him cared for comfortably so be lay still and tried, since lie could do noth- ing else, to he patient. And the sta rs helped a great deal, lie became interested in the varied • " colors. " the different sorts of twinkles, the fascinatingly odd groups in which they were arranged. Always, however, his eyes came hack to rest on the small friendly one. which was in the very center of the heavens. It must know just how he felt ; anyway, he was pleased to think that it did. The star reminded him of something — something vague and elusive that he would not define. What was it? In his search he went over the only ground that belonged to him — his past life. Certainly it was nowhere in the last thirty years. That had been one eternal, endless drudge and light for existence. His thoughts jumped to his childhood. No, nothing there. He could not remember a mother; far, far hack in his mind there was the faintest picture of an old lady; but his most vivid memories were of bard whippings, and nights spent in empty boxes out on the streets — he wondered now how he had ever lived through it all. Boyhood had been — wait, wait! here it was! What was that going along a great white street one day and seeing — oh yes! he saw a tall handsome youth in the uniform of France. That was it. For days the figure of the young soldier stayed before him and made him want to be straight, strong, and worthy to wear such clothes and such a medal, which someone said, was given for the saving of a comrade. Slowly, gradually, however, it all faded, and he was. as before, the common street- urchin forced to " look out " for himself. And now. he knew not why. this star, so far above everything and yet so friendly to a poor fellow, brought hack the pic- ture of the soldier. This introspection was unusual for .lean and wearying. He closed his eyes and tried to sleep. But sleep would not come. Jean discovered that bis throat was rough and dry. There was no water. What should be do? He attempted to for- ge! by winking back at the star, but every minute his tongue felt larger and rougher. bis throat smaller and dryer. He mined his arms, so the pain in bis hack would make thirst seem insignificant; and a triumphant feeling was his when his left arm. outstretched, nearly touched his head. There lay bis reward — a canvas canteen. Cautiously, carefully, lest the mouth might be open and let any water out. he brought it closer, shaking it gently. Yes! he could hear the water " slosh — sloshing " against the sides. He removed the cork and lifted the canteen to his burning mouth. ' ' Water — water — " there came a faint groan before Jean bad time to feel the cool water trickle down bis throat. He lowered the canvas vessel. " Who. is it? " his gruff voice asked. " It is — I. — Pierre. " answered the voice on Jean ' s left. " Oh. give me water. " ' 1 can ' t, " said Jean. " My back is hurt and I can ' t reach you. " Again be lifted the canteen — but the sight of the star stopped him. Tts twinkle seemed to he saving. " Think ! Think ! Think ' . " He answered it angrilv. Whv should he have to i lii iik ill mi 1 1 anything when he was almosl dying for ii drink of water ? 1 1 was not his fault thai Pierre was wounded and wanted water. Why should lie have to care for anyone bul himself? He looked away, Inn the star was persistent — he could see it from the corner of Ins eye no matter how he turned his head. And it kept say- ing " Think ! Think ' . " n nl i I Jean, almost against his will, acknowledged thai one day Pierre had befriended him. Jean ha.d never known what it was to have a friend- he whs as stingy with his " likes " as he was generous with his " dislikes " — and when Pierre was land, " Jean did no1 understand. llis rebellions thoughts were cheeked, his eyes widened and fixed themselves on the star. It was taking the form of a round, yellow thing — finally he recognized ii as a flashing disc, a medal! .lust such a medal as the soldier wore so proudly. Jean ' s old desire came back to him, all the stronger for its long rest. Perhaps there was enough water for both of them — they would both be saved, and Jean would have a golden ornament fastened on his breast — for saving a comrade. Listening atten- tively he gave the canteen a little shake; the throaty gurgle made him think ' it wax about half full. Now. the question was, who should have the first drink? Naturally he thought of himself. Bu1 then, suppose he should start and not be able to stop until it was all gone? Pierre would die, and the chance of winning the medal would be lost. He might give it to Pierre first, for he could keep him from drinking too much; then, too, he himself would enjoy the water all the more for having waited. His mind made up, he set about rising, lie braced his arm as best he could and started to get up, leaning on it. but his back seemed broken right in the middle and it could not stand the strain, lie fell back. The canteen dropped; the water poured out on the ground. With alarm .lean saw; the pain was excruciating but he turned over, reaching for the water with bis tongue. It was of no use. The ground was even dryer than his throat, and it drank greedily. Again he sank back; he raised his eyes to the star and, though he did not know it, prayed. With a sudden hope he grasped the canteen and shook it again. Yes. there was the tiniest crystal murmur. But as its coolness neared his parched lips, he remembered Pierre. There was another struggle. No man can describe what went on in pom- .lean ' s mind. It was a fight between the two sides of his nature, and he had been hardly acquainted with even one. He realized that there was to be no medal. He must decide now which. Jean or Pierre, was to live. Perhaps he thought the nurses would find them in a little while: perhaps he hated the idea of going back to the old. sordid, relentless life; perhaps — perhaps indeed the tiny germ of — shall we call it so? — divinity, which lies at the bottom of every man ' s soul whether dormant or active, came to life in Jean. Crawling more slowly than a snail, painfully prilling his wretched body over the blinding, choking dust, he reached Pierre. Pierre ' s eyes were closed, his teeth clinched. Jean managed somehow to force open the mouth and pour in the precious draught. Then he lay face downward, bis bead on his arm. and groaned. The star was not a medal now. but a real cross of glory, a thing most wonderful in its quiver- ing life and dazzling brilliancy. Once he rolled over and saw it. In the morning they found Pierre, weak but alive. He would not leave, he said, until they cared for Jean and made him comfortable. They found Jean and beheld on his face a peaceful, almost joyful half-smile. Jean was comfortable. He under- stood. M. P.. ' 17. Jane Arrives Louise Henley Jane Fantam . Jul Blake . A OXE-ACT PLAY .

Well (dis- gustedly) as little Jane Fantam used to say: ' This is the messiest mass of mail the mail-carrier ever fotched. ' Little Jane! She certainly was a had little rascal and well deserved the apt name of ' Bantam ' which we gave her on account of her size and because of the rhyme of Bantam Fantam. When she would strut around that college acting so independent and playing the most audacious pranks on everyone, she was surely an exact representation of that small and amusing fowl. Ob! dearie me. bow dull everything is. I wish something exciting would happen. " (Enter maid.) Maid: " A telegram. Miss. " Louise: " Oh. Betsy, how you startled me!

" Louise: " Did she say Tuesday? (Looks at telegram) Why, yes, she did! Oh. Betsy, no; that barum scarum Jane would never telegraph a week ahead that she was coming.

Jim. to lie sure, she ' s a strange girl, hut you are not usually afraid of them. No. she isn ' t especially pretty and isn ' t attractive to hoys in the least. (The slender girl across the room smothers a giggle.) She doesn ' t like boys, you see, hut if you ' ll just ineci her for me, I ' ll give you ever so many dates with Sarah Denton, who is going to visit me next week. She ' s a raving beauty and you ' ll he crazy about — " JANE (catching Louise by the shoulders, laughing): " Not another word about your company. " You needn ' t think you can make me jealous, for I know you don ' t like that stuck-up Sarah Denton as much as you do me, even if she is a raving beauty. She ' s a " raving " one all right. Don ' t look so dumbfounded, Louise. As there was no one to meet me. I, happening to remember your address, took a jitney and here 1 am! Dear me. don ' t let old acquaintance be forgot in such a manner. Why, you haven ' l even kissed me, my darling old ' crushie.

Is it really you. Bantam? " Jane (taking oh " her hat and making herself at home generally): " Yessum, it is. And it ' s likely to he from now on. amen.

" Jane (contentedly) : " All of your fears are without foundation, my dear. I wouldn ' t object for the world. " (Exit Louise.) (Jane gets up, walks over to fireplace and smiles to herself; then laughs out- right) : " Oh. it is good that " me mither and fither were Irish.

I assure you 1 have heard Louise speak of you quite often. " JlM: " Louise was expecting a curious, homely little person called Jane Fan- tam to arrive today, hut I ' m glad you came instead. I had been shaking in my bodts at having to talk to the creature. " Jane: " 1 don ' t blame you; she certainly is a homely little piece. " Jim: " You know her. then? " Jane: " Well, slightly. " Jim: " From what I gathered from Louise ' s hurried words over the ' phone, she ' s not in the least attractive. " Jane (with great decision) : " No. not in the least. " Jim : " Do you suppose I had better meet her? How in the name ' s sake, am I to know when she is to arrive? " Jane: " I ' ll call Louise. " Jim: " Oh. never mind. I don ' t suppose she even said when she was coming. Girls never do. you know. I say. this is awfully pleasant. Miss Denton. " Jane: " Why. Mr. Blake, of course Louise knows what train her company is coming on. If someone doesn ' t meet her, the poor child will have to hire a ear to come up.

S., 19. Cupid or Fate? TEE lone traveler paused a ..moment, looking about him. and then sat down on the large rock uear the road. He gazed dreamily at the lovely scene un- rolled before him; peak after peak stretched away in the distance, until they became masses of a hazy blue. The traveler evidently was one used to surround- ings far different from these ; his well-fitting khaki suit, tan leggins and khaki hat, branded him a stranger in these parts. Too, his physical makeup was not of the brawny type of the mountaineer: he was tall and thin, with a face, pale and tired looking, that seemed to call for slightly gray hair, instead of the thick dark locks that could he seen beneath his soft hat ; his grey eyes were the kind that see every- thing at a glance, and understand a situation in a moment. lie removed a kodak from a case hanging from his shoulder, and took several pictures of the scenes around him : then he looked at his watch, gave a surprised ex- clamation at the lateness of the hour, picked up his stout stick, and started on up the mountain, following the unusually well-kept road that wound up the mountain. He had not gone far when he heard the faint roar of a motor; soon a bright- yellow roadster rounded the curve, and come towards him. He didn ' t feel like talk- ing to anyone just then, and would have stepped aside into the woods or behind a boulder, hut the roadside, just at that point, was perfectly bare, and he had nothing to do but walk on. He heard the car draw nearer and nearer, with no signs of slowing down, and he had hopes that the driver would not offer him a seat, as he much preferred being let alone. As the auto seemed ready to pass him. he heard the brakes grinding, and the car came to a stop right at his side. A cheery voice called out: " Have a lift? " lie turned and looked into the brown eyes of a laughing girl. He was so surprised at the driver being a girl, and such a bold, laughing girl. that, for a moment, he did not reply. " Oh, you need not he afraid : I ' ll promise not to kidnap you or let any outlaws catch you. " she taunted. At last, lie recovered himself, and accepted the offered seat like a Chesterfield. In a moment she had the little yellow roadster speeding along at a good pace. " On your way to Pleasant Inn? " she asked, without even looking at him. " Xn! 1 didn ' t even know there ' s such a place as that. " he responded. " Where is it? What soil id ' place — I suppose you are staying there? " ' " It ' s about the only resort up this way. " evading hi s question. " Where are you going, then ? " " That ' s just what 1 want to know. I felt like a hike and just up and left, not caring much where I ' d hind. Fate ' s been mighty kind to me. though. Yester- day I happened on a lot of campers who gave me a jolly good time and a line bed. I expected to sleep on the ground. Then 1 expected to have to walk all the way up this steep mountain, but you came along and picked me up, so I ' ll not worry so long as Fate is taking care of me. " and he thought to himself that it wasn ' t so had after all, having to tails to someone, especially when thai s ne was a brown- eyed, jolly girl. He wanted t " gel a better look at her, but found it difficull to do, since they were seated so close together. She was bareheaded, and had on a " good-looking " sweater, a big yellow sweater with a large white " ( ' " ' on ii. lie wondered where she got it. and imagined some handsome college chap had given H lo her. It must lie a Catawba sweater, those were the right colors, lie knew lots of the Catawba hoys, and decided on several of his chums who might have been her admirer; perhaps he ' d heard them mention her. This thought, reminded him that he didn ' t know her name, so he set ahou! to find it, if he Could. " Do vuii live al Pleasant Inn? " he asked again. " No! that ' s a beastly place. We have a little shack up on Silver Lake where we spend summers. l ' leasant Inn ' s nothing to our Happy Hollow. I wish we could, live up here year in and year out ; and I ' m going to. too, just as soon as I finish school. See if I don ' t! " she challenged. " What school are you in? " followed quite naturally. " Hale College, near Louisville. Know anybody there? " she asked, at his sur- prised exclamation. " Well, I should say so. Fact. I though) I knew ' em all. hut I guess 1 was mistaken. Do yon know Lalla Carlisle? " ' ' Should think I ought to; we ' ve chummed a year or so. Guess you ' ve heard her speak of me. " She had to give most of her attention to the car, which was running a little too fast to suit her companion, at least. He noticed her smile rather oddly when she answered his question. " Well, " he began, " you see, I don ' t know who you are, yet. " A peal of laughter rang out. and she exclaimed. " The idea! how foolish of me! I know you ' ve heard her speak of — . " .lust then the car, going too fast around the curve7 " spun about on two wheels, skidded, and for an instant seemed determined to plunge over the precipice on the other side of the road. In a flash, she had the car under control, and. with a nervous laugh, asked: " 1 didn ' t promise you not to dump you down a precipice, did I ? " He was still wondering how she had managed it. and did not hear her ques- tion. Soon they had taken another curve, and directly before them was a small. white cottage. The girl blew the whistle and out of the house came three other girls, racing toward the car. On seeing that she was not alone, they stopped suddenly, their faces filled with wonder. " Come on, girls, see what I ' ve found — a real man. Come on, I ' ll introduce you. though I ' m sure, 1 — " Shu was interrupted by one of the girls, who came running to meet them, ex- claiming, " Brownie! what in the world are you doing up here? Why, 1 didn ' t know you even knew Jill. " And Dr. Browne, equally astonished, exclaimed. " Lalla! you up here! and is that Jill, the one you used to talk about all the time? " " Yes, that ' s old Jill, and these are Virginia Craft and Kathryn Hill. May I ask how Jill happened to find you? " she continued. 23 - $U " Lai. don ' 1 vmi remember thai day Dr. Browne was at Hale last year, ami I saw him at tin- station, ready to leave, just as 1 came back from home? " explained Jill. " Well, I recognized him when I saw him hack yonder mi tin- mail, ami I de- cided to haw some fun. Come mi. let ' s find mother, ami show her our ' foundling ' . " The laughing party went mi toward tin.- bouse, all talking, asking questions ami giving explanations at the same time. " Phil, 1 though! you were too busy to leave ami take a stroll in the mountains. Why you ' ve not even had time to answer my letters. " chided Lalla. " That ' s just the trouble. I ' ve been too busy. That epidemic of fever in town nearly wore me to a frazzle, ami I had to prescribe a hike for myself. I didn ' t know I was to he a guest at a house-party, or I ' ll have brought along my suit-ease. I ' m sure. " he explained. Conversation lagged for a moment, then Lalla began. " Phil, don ' t nm remem- ber Virginia? She ' s the one you said you ' d not like to fight with. " Dr. Browne hurst into a laugh. " Are you the suffragette? The one that stood on the steps and poured forth the why ' s and wherefore ' s of woman suffrage into the ears of innocent Freshmen? " With that. Virginia " turned loose " and she and the young doctor kept the sub- ject going until Lalla and lvathrvn. later followed by Jill, grew tired and slipped away; kept it up even until dinner was announced, and were not then willing to stop, had nut the other three flatly refused to come to the table until the debaters promised not to " •fuss " any more, hut to act like sensible people, at least during the meal. While at the table. Lalla monopolized the conversation with the young man. with recollections of former days with other friends — dances, gay parties, picnics. etc. " I ' ve got to where such things don ' t interest me much now. " said Browne; " for a pleasant evening. I like to read and smoke — guess I ' m getting old and set in my ways, " he laughed. " Well, if you ' ll just come up home for a week or so. I ' ll change you. " declared Lalla. After dinner they decided to go out on the lake for a while; it was so much fun to be on the lake at night, e specially on a moonlight night like this. The quiet, but far-sighted Kathryn. remembering that the small motorboat held only four per- sons, excused herself, saying that she just must write letters, and she would stay with Mrs. Barton. Jill ' s mother. Soon, the four came out. loaded with pillows and wraps, and went on down to the lake, leaving Kitty and Mrs. Barton on the veranda. They all got into the boat, packed pillows around them, started the motor, and the boat, guided by Jill, moved slowly out into the lake. " It ' s a good tiling Kitty did have letters to write. " commented Lalla. " for there ' s certainly no room for anyone else. " " I ' ll bet she ' ll not write a scratch tonight, and I ' ll further bet she was wild to come, she loves to ride on the lake at night: hut she knew this boat doesn ' t carry but four. That ' s why she ' had letters to write ' . " explained Jill. " I started to make her come in my place, but I remembered I am the only one who understands this cranky boat, so I had to come. I ' m going to go back after a while and swap one of yon Eor her, sec i I ' I don ' t. " " Who is she? " asked the doctor. " I don ' 1 remember having ever heard you speak of her. " " She ' s a distant relative of mine. " replied Jill. " She lives down-country, near the river. I ' ve never known her very well myself, but the better I know her, the better i like her. Mother thinks she ' s a gem — and I guess she is. Furthermore, she ' s the kind of girl thai don ' t believe in dancing anything but the old square dance and other old-fashioned things. And she won ' t talk much, unless you pull the words out of her. " and Lalla added her description of Kitty. " All right, Miss Virginia, let ' s have your idea of her. Then, after you ' re all through, I ' ll formulate my opinion, " said Phil. " Oh! she ' s all right, I guess. Bui she insists that ' the hand thai rocks the cradle rules the world, ' and not ' the hand that casts the vote. ' ' ' " So do I. " replied Browne, with a laugh. " She can ' t lis ' ten to reason of any sort, when it comes to woman suffrage, " con- tinued Virginia, while Phil was softly whistling the chorus: " 1 want a girl, just like the girl that married dear old dad; A good, old-fashioned girl with heart so true. " Ai this. Virginia grew indignant, and again a. hot discussion seemed inevitable, hut Jill and Lalla threatened to go in if they started it. Back there on the veranda. Kitty, sitting on the steps, played her guitar, and sang all those old songs so dear to everyone. Mrs. Barton, lying on a couch, was supre mely happy, as she lived again in scenes recalled by the singing of those old songs: " Old Black Joe, " " Kentucky Home, " " Swanee River, " " Home, Sweet Home. " and then, later songs, but like the others, songs that touch the heart, " Carry Me Back to Ole Virginny, " " In the Evenin ' by the Moonlight. " " Just Awearving Eor You. " " Kitty! Kitty! come here a minute. " said Jill, interrupting the song. Kitty answered, and started toward the boat, still softly playing and singing. Coming toward them, in the moonlight, Browne thought she looked like some angel who rarely visits thir world, and so she did. " Come on and ride some. ' Ginny ' s going to stay with mother. Come on. quick. " Virginia took off her coat for Kitty, and was in the act of taking the guitar back to the house, when Phi] noticed what she was doing. " Please bring your guitar along ; I ' ve been wanting some music all evening. " he begged. So Kitty took it. and soon, far out. could be heard the soft strains of the instrument, with the girl ' s clear soprano and Browne ' s tenor. Before parting for the night. Lalla reminded them, " Now, don ' t forgot, we ' re all going to get up soon in the morning and play tennis. " True to their word. Lalla, Virginia and Browne, were up bright and early, and waiting for Jill to come on. Lalla was getting restless and went in to hurry Jill a bit. " Jill Barton! still in bed! " she exclaimed, " and you promised to get up early and play tennis. " " Aw! get Kitty. Tell her she ' s got to play this morning. " grumbled the sleep- ing Jill. Soon Lalla returned. " Kitty ' s gone out on the hike so Uncle .lake says, and will not Likely return before breakfast, so do hurry. " Id a very short time, .Till presented herself, clad in white, ready to ' win or lose againsl anyone of you. ' " as she explained. They had been playing quite a while. Lalla and Browne against Jill and Virginia, and were now trying to finish a " deuce " game, dill and Virginia had a " vantage " and were determined to make it " game. " Lai and Browne were just as determined to make it " deuce " again, when Browne missed a hall, a perfectly good hall, and lost the game. It wasn ' t his fault that he missed it. it was Kitty ' s fault, for she had no business coming near the court when Browne was trying to play tennis, especially when she had on a smart little khaki hunting-suit, tan hoots, a ri tie over her shoulder and several quail in her hand. " Kitty, why didn ' t you stay and play tennis? You know you promised to play, last night. " eluded dill. " I did no such thing. Jill, and besides. 1 thought we ' d all enjoy some nice fresh quail for breakfast. Aren ' t they tine? " she asked, holding her specimen up to the others. " Say. how long " till breakfast; l " m so hungry for some right now. I believe 1 could eat a whole one myself, " declared Browne. " Well, you ' ll have a chance, anyway, ' ' answered Ktty, as she went on toward the house. " Don ' t you all want to take a little swim before breakfast? " " Oh. let ' s do. come on! Dr. Browne, you can use father ' s suit: he keeps it up here all the time, because there ' s no place for swimming where we live down the country, " explained Jill. As they were going to the lake. Browne challenged Kitty to a race, and away they went, side by side. Kitty went straight to the spring-hoard, made a graceful dive, and came up smiling at the tardy ones. She was an excellent swimmer and diver, and it kept the others working to keep up with her. Virginia would not venture out far, for she was only a beginner in swimming, and Browne noticed that Kitty kept Virginia in her sight most of the time. Jill. Kitty and Browne were racing to the other side of the lake, when Kitty, glancing hack, saw Virginia getting farther away from the shore. " Go back, Virginia, " she shouted, " don ' t come any further. " But Virginia either couldn ' t or wouldn ' t go hack. In a flash. Kitty was swimming toward her with a speed that even Browne was unable to equal. Before Kitty reached Virginia, the unfortunate girl was sinking. The way across the lake had never seemed so far to Kitty as she struggled on. Site reached Virginia just in time to seize her by the hair as she was sinking the second time. The drowning girl clutched Kitty ' s free arm. holding her so that she was powerless to do anything whatever, and pulling her under in spite of her efforts to keep above water. Browne followed close upon her; while Jill pushed her strength to the limit to firing her near the drowning girl. Lalla made for the shore, and having gained it, sank down, an unnerved and almost unconscious heap. Browne freed Kitty from Virginia ' s grasp, and began to carry the unconscious girl to the shore, while Jill had almost to carry Kitty, so weak and exhausted that she was almost senseless. ' . ' Z ' 7 ' - ' a BA iMLlfliil ' Another i nt, and Dr. Browne was giving curl directions. He sent . ' ill in the house with La] and then told her to go for another doctor. Kitty, summon- ing every atom of her strength, began obeying Browne ' s orders to help him restore Virginia. Minnies passed, long, endless minutes, then an hour dragged by, and still they worked, Just as they were almosl despairing, when Kitty had watched the expression on Browne ' s face change to one of hopelessness, Virginia drew a faint, quivering breath. " She breathed! — work hard, for God ' s sake. We ' ve gel to save her! " said Browne, between short breaths. Another age of minutes, and Virginia began breathing faintly, but she kept it up — gradually the breaths became stronger, deeper, more regular, until Dr. Browne said it would be safe to remove her to the house. Blankets were brought, and carefully, slowly, she was carried up the steep path to the cottage. When she was safely in bed. and still breathing deeply and regularly, Dr. Browne paused long enough in his work to speak to Kitty. " You ' re a brick! Work like that would have riddled ninety-nine out of a hundred women. It came near getting me, and you ' re about done, up, too! " Kitty blushed at this hearty compliment, mumbled some reply, and felt extremely uncomfortable. When she went out on the veranda, she met Jill, just returning from the village, with another doctor; her face was pale, and she called excitedly to Kitty, " How is she. Kit. " " She came through, and is breathing deeply now, hut she ' s still unconscious. She certainly bad a close shave, " replied Kitty. As Jill passed her, running into the house, she handed her a yellow envelope. ' ' Here ' s a message for you, been there since yesterday afternoon. Oh ! I hope it ' s nothing had. " and no one could have doubted the sincerity of her words. Telegrams were rather unusual with Kitty, and her hands trembled a little as she opened it. Her face paled as she read: " Come home, mother ill, hurry— J. Gr. Hill. " Jill saw her pale ami her lips tremble as she tried to control herself, and said. " Jill, could you take me to the train, quickly? Mother ' s sick. She ' s never been sick before. Oh! 1 wish I were home! I ' ll he ready in a minute. " she called over her shoulder as she ran to her room to change. In only a second or two. she was ready in a dark traveling suit and hat. While they were speeding on. she gave Jill directions. " If we make that 10:15, you go straight and wire father to meet me. Pack my trunk and send it most any time. I don ' t ' specially need it. Be sure and let me know bow (iinny is, every day. Is that the train whistle? Let ' s stop it at the crossing: I ' ve got to get on. " They reached the crossing in plenty of time to flag the train, and Kitty sped toward her home and ill mother. ' Two years had passed, during which period, Browne had allowed no opportunity to pass of showing Kitty what he thought of her. One bright morning in June. Jill had run down to the village for the mail. She recognized Kitty ' s handwriting on one of the letters, and quickly opening, read : " May we come to ' Happy Hollow ' on our honeymoon ? — Kitty and Doc. " She sent this message in reply : " Do. by all means; and Lai and Ginny shall come, too. later on, if you say so. just for ' Auld Lang Syne. ' P.

" Ballad of the Honeysuckle " I dreamed of wondrous palaces And longed therein to bloom; I dreamed of stately corridors Ami bowers to perfume. And so I hid behind a mate, A lily white was she, And to a palace with her went. Adventure great for me! Alas the dream! Alas the day! A slender hand and fair, There pulled me from the costly vase, And thrust me on the air. I fell upon a flagstone cold, Beneath that window high, Ami thought me there to wilt and fade K ' er anvone came nigh. But soon I heard a lissome step, And warm hands placed me near A gentle maiden ' s beating heart, And then I lost all fear. She took me to a thatched hut, And by the door there planted. No happier life could I have sought, Nor e ' er to me been granted. I now embrace the old hut ' s roof, A bower I have made, And oft from there I look adown Upon our wild, sweet glade. 1 sometimes see trim terraces, Bright flower-gardens laid, But not for all their state and pride Would I exchange my sister-maid. " M. R. ' 17. Longings High up in the pines, Three little doves Lie, sheltered by mother ' s breast and love; Rocked by the breezes, in the tree ' s boughs. Crooned to sleep while the wind howls, Or whispers its message of love.

A radiant spirit led me on Through Elysian fields of beauty rare, " O soul! " I cried, " let me stay here, Lead me not back to that world of care! ' But the spirit beckoned me on. " 0 soul, let me stay in this world of beauty ! ' ' But the spirit only whispered, " Duty. " And as I passed I gathered a flower Of rich golden hue ' neath an aerial blue, Which as I went still brighter grew, Till my eyes grew dim and softly closed, Closed on that world of enchanting dreams, To open where the morning sun beams ( )n a world of pain and sorrow and rue. But a world where faith linked to hope still gleams, Because of those who to duty are true. M. B., ' 17. O, Tall Leafless Trees 0, tall leafless trees, standing bare in the face of Heaven, Your branches opposing the wild angry winds, Come with your dignity, majesty, poise, And to me impart whence the force you exhibit; For I am weak, tempest-toss M, And would know whence the strength that endures. Without pity life ' s storms have lashed me. Have crushed my spirit, alas! And left me lifeless and broken. high, rugged rocks, jutting far out into the sea, Your craggy sides washed by its wild, dashing waves, Come with your strength, endurance and power, And give me the secret and charm of your force; For I am now weak and a-weary. 0, give me the strength that endures ; The billows of life have swept o ' er me. Have shattered my spirit, alas! And have le ft me lifeless and broken. M. N., ' 18. Sun Rise When the sun in golden splendor Rises o ' er the distant hills, Come those thoughts both sweet and tender And my soul with rapture thrills With delight At the sight Of the vale in all its beauty, And its quick response to duty, Welcomes light. When the dew that ' s on the clover Sparkles like a new-cut gem, And each flower bending over Sips the drops through slender stems. In dismay We survey All the glories of creation. Duty calls each to his station — We obev. Sunset When the day is done, and the shadows fall O ' er the earth as it sinks to rest, And the Robin titters a fond good-night To his mate in the wee brown nest, Then a subtle change steals over us all Attuning our souls tj the best; We ' ve forgotten the day and the cares that it brought, Its sorrow — its joy — or its jest — And the spirit of twilight creeps into our hearts, And we, with the muth, are at rest. R. B., ' IS The Violet Oh, modest little violet, You are spring-time ' s treasured pet; A simple token of God ' s blessing, His emblem, purity, confessing. I see in your little eye, Reflections of the deep, blue sky. If you blossom to be plucked, And neatly in some maid ' s hair tucked. The gentleness of your face Would add beauty to her grace; But if you are left alone to die ( ' rushed by some near passerby, From death too soon you would not shrink. As you blossom by the brink.

I ' the stars that ever shine. watch the moon rise slowly From the mist, o ' er a distant pine, Casting such weird shadows ' round me, I glance back from time to time.

Exams, are the most effective forms of slow torture that the combined faculties of all ages have been able to invent. They are prepared and kept in store until a dark, rainy week comes, then they are inflicted upon the helpless students. They last for four or five days, being applied in doses of three hours, twice on each of these days. The torture is barbarous. Many of the long-suffering pupils cannot endure the prolonged agony, and are given " D ' s " as a mark of shame. " D ' s " are applied in a round-about way, being secretly forwarded to our fond parents, who urge us to allow the faculty to dispose of its " D ' s " without our valua- ble assistance. There is one remedy for the dreadful " D " disease. Go to your room, lock your- self in; then, deliver an oration against Exams. Do it. It cannot hurt anyone, and it will do von lots of good. A. B. Bangs By bangs, we mean an undue extension of capitulary substance upon the Eore- liead; a dread disease caused liy intense excitement. At present, the college is overflowing with girls smitten with this plague. The only thing- to which we are able to attribute it. is the fact that our magic non-exhaustible gravy-barrel suddenly stopped working last week, and we were forced to eat two meals at Anderson College without our mainstay, and great pep-producer, gravy. Almost maddened on account of the Lack of our nutritious and luscious beverage, and nearly crazed by the unexplainable calamity which had befallen our gravy well, the fair and excited students of Anderson College began " whacking " off their beauti- ful locks. Among the first to fall before the dread disease, were Ruth and Ann. ' o one suspected that they had been stricken until the crisis came and left them with its dread mark. " Bangs. " Poor Em had an awful case; she not only tried the scissors on her own hair, but in her delirium, cut bangs for others, who were wavering be- tween death and life with bangs: Edna. Edith, Peak, May, Mary Dale and Gladys. The plague was kept in east dormitory for some time. We thought that west dormitory was going to escape entirely. Great was our disappointment, when we learned that Marion had bangs. Soon, Nelle. Meyda, Edna, Virginia. Lucile and Marie, contracted the plague. Anderson is now convalescent — bangs are rapidly disappearing under the sooth- ing influence of gravy, applied three times a day. A - B - A Psalm of College Life (Apologies to Longfellow.) Exams are real! Exams are earnest! And the stars are not their goal, C ' s thou wert, to C ' s returnest, Is the lesson that they hold. Trust no mark howe ' er pleasant! Let the dead past bury its dead, Cram — Cram in the living present, Naught within, and all ahead. Marks of A.B. and Ph.D., all remind us We can make our marks with chalk. And departing leave behind us, Foot-prints on the narrow walk. Footprints that perhaps a Sophomore, Sailing o ' er Anderson ' s main, A truly disgusted sister Seeing, shall lose heart again. Freshies, all be up and doing, With a smile for any fate; Still a-working, still " a-crammiug. " ' But for stars vou ' 11 learn to wait. N. McA. ?

You said that you ' d be true, If I would stay with you ' Till time should end. I found you false to me, For you have sweethearts three, And you won ' t marry me, So then Amen !

Examination Gem; I the earth which way Epidermis is what keeps your skin on. The torrid zone is caused by the friction of the equator, which runs ' roun in the middle. Longitude and latitude are imaginary lines on the earth which show you you are going. The days are shorter in winter because cold contracts. A Mr. Newton invented gravity with the aid of an apple. There was no such man as Hamlet. He lived in Denmark. A curve is a straight line that has been bent. The climate is caused by hot and cold weather. The pagans were a contented race until the Christians came among them. A boy who is amphibious can use all of his hands. Gold was discovered in California before anyone knew it was there. Mars is the name of a star so far off it would take a million years to walk there in an express train. A miracle is anything that some one does that can ' t be done. — Mi;. Miller (in Ethics): " It would be a very optimistic view if we should believe that pleasures do not end with this life — that we could enjoy thinking of psychological principles ami ethical questions all the hereafter. " Marie (aside): " Me for the burning pit! " When 1 mount the stairs in the morning. My heart is light and gay : And as my I ' eet go up the stairs way. this just goes heart My But when I ' m plied with questions, And the right answer I can ' t say. Mv heart sinks deep within me.

If all the cows eaten by the buxom lassies of Anderson College were made into one cow. that one cow could stand at the equator and with one switch of that one cow ' s tail, sweep icicles off the north pole. If all the pigs consumed by the pig- eaters of Anderson College were made into one pig. that one pig could channel out a Panama Canal with three roots, and if all the goats devoured by the " huttin- skys " of Anderson College were made into one goat, that one goat could knock down the Statue of Liberty witli two butts.

Alma Mater dear, of the flowers of love that have blossomed ami grown So thick ami so beautiful here. Louring all the year that is past, We, our mutual joys have shared, Ami when sorrows fell thick and fast. Our comrade it was who eared. Even when conflicts between us rose, And unruly tempers made us mad, ' Twas thy sweet influence which ever flows, That made us forgive, lie happy and glad. Round us at this closing hour. The heartstrings of faculty are wound, As we leave our love lighted bower, And the friends whom we have found. Some we ' ve thought strict, tho ' always kind. They ' ve worked earnestly for our best; And if we ' ve found fault, love is blind; We saw not the ones who sheltered our nest. Qur I ' resident we leave indeed with pain, Tho ' little with him have we been; Yet the truths he taught we would fain, Into our soul and being, blend. N ow that we stand upon the verge Awaiting our step of life to take. Be all that ' s noble and true, we urge, For our Alma Mater ' s sake. Mary Dale Miller, ' IS.
