While the course of study con- forms to the State requirements, a large amount of " supervised election " is permitted. The aim in granting election of studies is to fit the course to the individual needs and not to fit the pupil to the course. Practicability is the chief factor kept in mind in planning the course. Thirty-two credits are required for graduation, fourteen of which are left to the pupil ' s choice. ENGLISH English is the most important course offered in the high school. Ninety- five per cent, of the failures in high school work is due to the inability to read English correctly, forcibly, and effectively. It is the aim of the de- partment to make English practical, and to establish, as far as it is possible for the school to do so, the habit of correct writing and speaking. Rhetoric and composition, together with a constant review of Grammar are empha- sized throughout the course. Literature is studied to serve as models for forms of discourse, to enlarge the vocabulary, and help the pupil enjoy our best literature. The rhetoric work is based on Thomas and Howe ' s Com- position and Rhetoric ; the work in American literature is based on New- comer ' s American Literature: in English literature, Halleck is used. FOREIGN LANGUAGE The two foreign languages studied in the high school are Latin and German. Students are required to pursue one of the two. Four years of each are offered, but a student may graduate with the minimum require- ment of two years ' work. LATIN The study of the Latin language is of inestimable value in cultivating the habits of accuracy of expression and thought. Xo subject in the high school course, with the probable exception of mathematics, has the power of overcoming careless ami slovenly thought habits as Latin. Again the clear and effective interpretation of English literature requires an extensive use of Latin words and roots. For this reason Latin becomes a practical subject. First year work is based on Bennett ' s First Year Latin. Caesar ' s Gallic Wars, Cicero ' s Orations, and Virgil ' s Aeneid together with Com- position furnish the basis for the last year ' s work. GERMAN As a language study in the high school, what is true of Latin may be said of German. In addition, it mav be said that inasmuch as German is a modern language study, the acquirement of a speaking knowledge of it is of great importance. Hence the conversational method of instruction is used extensively. The course as carried out for the year 1910-1911 has con- sisted of first, third and fourth years. The work of the first year has been based on Harris ' German Lessons and Bacon ' s Im Vaterland ; of the third year on Thomas ' German Grammar, Storm ' s Immensee and Schiller ' s William Tell; and of the fourth year on the German Classics — Goethe ' s Iphegenie ant Tauris, Lessing ' s Minna von I ' arnhelm and Scheffel ' s Trompeter von Sakkineen. HISTORY History properly taught is a most important factor in the development of the mind and character of our youth. It enables them to obtain a com- prehensive idea of the past and thereby form accurate conceptions of the present. An intelligent understanding of our institutions should be a part of the educational equipment of every boy and girl: and because of this we believe the study of history should hold an important place in the school curriculum. It is believed that the following- course will not only measure up to the college entrance requirements, but will also give the student who stops with the high school a broad and comprehensive view of life, with some power at least to judge rightly of the future in its many aspects. In the first year Ancient History is studied, covering the field of history from the earliest times to the year 800 A. D. The major work is placed on the study of Greece and Rome. Modern History is studied in the second year. It covers the work from 800 A. D. to present time. The age of Feudalism, the Crusades, the Renaissance are considered, and Christianity in its relation to the movement for free government receives careful attention. The course in English History is planned to give the pupil a broader view ol the sources of our own institutions and thereby enable the student to better understand United States history. This course is offered in the third year. In the fourth year the time is devoted to the study of American History and Civil Government. Much attention is given to the study of our political institutions in their adaptations to present social and economic conditions. MATHEMATICS The mathematics offered in the high school comprises three half-years of algebra, three of geometry, and one of commercial arithmetic. The stu- dent of mathematics must acquire a certain minimum amount of knowledge of mathematics as a fundamental working basis. This is necessary for the continuance of the subject of mathematics , for the study of the allied sciences, and for the requirements of college entrance. The study of mathe- matics aims to do more than this. It furnishes exact assumptions from which unquestionable conclusions can be reached by strictly logical pro- cesses. Along with the habits of correct thinking and reasoning, the stu- -I (Hbr iFarultg Behold our great Faculty, so staid and so wise, Whose dignified frowns fill us quite with surprise. Their knowledge appalls us; their scowls scare us stiff; That they ever were children, is surely a myth. They expect you to sit with your nose in a hook, Nor will they allow you to send even a look To that sweet little darling, just three seats away; If you do, why of course, there ' s deportment to pay. And deportment has value, as perhaps you may know, And it pays you to keep it. nor allow it to grow. For in growing, you see. it can only grow less, Then exemptions are gone and Exams, make you guess. Did you think you might smile? Oh, don ' t be so bold! For a look you will get that will make you turn cold. Yes. the joke may he funny, and your sides be right sore. But. " School is for work! " comes the faculty ' s roar. Perhaps it ' s a note that you have in your sleeve. And as you pass down the aisle you are planning to leave It right there on her desk, in a free careless way. If the Faculty sees you, your plan ' s gone " agley. " Or. perhaps, in the class-room you think you can pass Just one word or two with some good lad or lass: But behold, from the class you are quickly dismissed, Then a conference that ' s private you must humbly enlist. Or the day may be beaming with sunshine and fun And you plan, all so nice, a good " grind " you will run. A game at the Lake will furnish the ruse; If course mamma and papa will write the excuse. But Monday dawns blue and grows bluer for you. When you learn an excuse will n ' er pull you through. That for the whistle you blew on Friday so gay, ( )n Monday with the sweat of your brow you must pay. Now, we ' ll look at this crowd, who so unfeeling can lie; Whose chief aim in life is to squelch you and me; Who never were children, and never loved fun ; Whose faces would crack, should a smile o ' er them run. The leader is called plain Mr. Flatt. But don ' t you forget it, he knows where he ' s at. You may think you can dodge him but you better not try. For you can ' t get around him or escape his quick eye. L. T. PLATT, Superintendent, Latin. J. H. WELDY, Pr Science. LILLIAN E. EVANS, English GEO. L. LETTS. History Perhaps it ' s down stairs that you lightly would trip. Three steps at a time, and the final long dip ; But there at the foot you receive just a sign, You return to the top, to descend, one step at a time. Or perhaps it is up. three or four packed abreast. You are passing with many a joke and a jest ; At the top you are met with a quizzical smile. And you return to the bottom, to come up single file. One day, you remember, you loitered around. The bell had stopped ringing, and the gong would soon sound ; To avoid being tardy you took a big hike Across the green campus, there was no one in sight. And then you recall how dead beat you did feel When you were frankly reminded ' twas not a square deal; And your steps you retraced quite sad and alone, To reach the old School House by a path made of stone. In class, I can tell you. he just makes things hum ; No lessons come there that are much on the bum. Your eyes are wide open, and attention you pay. You mind your p ' s and q ' s that period each da v. Irder is his motto and order ' s what he ' s got; There ' s not the least distinction, whether high or low your lot. School was made for work, he says, and never was for play; You ' ve got to keep a hustling if in life you ' d make your way. Oh. he ' s a man of business and he can fill the bill : We ' ve never had one like him. and I guess we never will. So we ' ll just keep him on, forever and a day, As long as we ' re in High School and he ' ll consent to stay. The man who ' s next in power is Weldy, Mr. John, And he ' s a hummer, too, to teach you right from wrong. Of course he ' s cross and crabbed, that ' s the boss ' s right: But he keeps you straight and going with all your main and might. He ' s a man of action with books and tools as well; He ' s furnished all the school house with something- pretty swell. The laboratory ' s splendid with its tables bright and new. And cupboards all divided in sections through and through. In the assembly room you ' ve noticed our cases tall and grand. And in the center, just between them, the nobby little stand For dictionaries numerous, of Webster and his tribe, And magazines and papers and lots of things besides. V. R. SHICK, Mathematics VEVA CASTELL, English and Latin. Mr. Weldy made them and placed them neatly there. And they give our little school room quite an aristocratic air. Perhaps, in the distant future, some knowledge he will impart — Of keeping books in order with just a touch of art. He teaches only Seniors but they always call him swell. And I guess he is, just judging from the awful dreadful smell That meets a fellow daily at the laboratory door. Of Chemistry and Physics ami other scents galore. So he s another member we ' d like to keep a while, To organize the business and keep affairs in style ; Then if you want your records, about your Senior year. You ' ll know just where to find them and they ' ll be stated clear. Mrs. Fairfield ' s our artist, our teacher, our friend; And our work has been good from beginning to end. We ' ve drawn, sketched, and painted, and cartooned, too, a bit. We ' ve made many a skillful picture that our teachers well would fit Sometimes we ' re rather naughty, like lots of other folks. You see, those Freshies ' greenness makes might} ' funny jokes; And when we laugh and giggle as we simply feel we must, Or something that ' s inside us is just a goi.ig to bust. Why, Mrs. Fairfield scolds us, as we know a teacher ought — She says we are more dreadful than she ever would have thought, And if we ' re not m ore quiet she ' ll put it on our cards, nd then sue just forgives us, and we ' re the best of pards. Rut if you think we ' re idle and haven ' t labored hard and long, Just look this Annual over and then you ' ll find you ' re wrong. For every single drawing in it belongs to High. School Art, And nearly every pupil has had some little part We ' re mighty proud. I tell you. of this our small display. (Our teacher knows we ' re grateful for guidance all the way.) But should you be offended at anything we ' ve done, We ask you to forgive us, and take it all in fun. Miss Fertich teaches music, and she can teach it well, ( ):i every Friday morning our chorus chimes do swell So clear, and loud, and certain that all the glorious sound Makes the little children speechless ami holds them quite spell-bound. Those who take the subject do surely get a rap At sharps and fiats and rests and beats anil every little tap Thai goes to make up music, clear through from A to Z, With instruments and masters whose names are Greek to me. MABEL E. FERTICH, German and Supervisor of Music. MRS. L. W. FAIRFIELD, Supervisor of Drawing. That she ' s a general favorite ' tis easy enough to guess, There ' s always pupils ' round her, a dozen more or less; All years are represented in this admiring train. But. perhaps, the little Freshies are found there in the main. ?.iiss Caste] just came such a short time ago That we ' re hardly acquainted and her faults we don ' t know. Perhaps she may have them hut they ' re hard things to find, And since we can ' t see them, we ' ll not trouble our mind. She teaches Sophomore Latin and 1 guess she ' s hard enough; We hear a lot of thinkers groan, " (lee! hut Caesar ' s tough. " And Juniors, too. are weeping because their grades are low. Now. don ' t they wish they ' d studied, a year or so ago! But now just let me tell you ' tis Seniors love her best; She doesn ' t try to kill you or break your quiet rest With Chaucer ' s tales and Shakespeare and all that other dope, Until for you to graduate, there ' s scarcely any hope. My thought was of Miss Evans, and say. but she ' s a fright: She ' d surely keep you going both morning, noon and night. With Literature and writing of themes and letters long. And poems of Thanksgiving and man}- another song. Your work that ' s late is zero, to talk is of no use Unless you ' r sick or dead, and then you must have an excuse. " To be prompt is your education, " she says with a sour smile; And you wonder if education is all in life that ' s worth while. Of course we ' re growing better, we can see it day by day, But we wish our education could come in an easier way. But as graduation nears us. perhaps the message will come " The task was hard , you ' ve conquered , receive the good ' Well done. Xow here ' s the man of banquets and all things good to eat, And he ' s the jolliest fellow you ' d ever want to meet. His name is Mr. Letts, as you possibly may have heard. He ' s big and tall and brawny, and if he should speak the word. You ' d just " skidoo, " I tell you, as fast as ever you could; Of course he ' d never touch you. but if he ever should There wouldn ' t be a frazzle left to tell that sad, sad story Of how that wicked Junior was started off to glory. He teaches all the history, and say. but he ' s the stuff; With news reports and law class. I guess he does enough. And you bet you he can orate, you just should hear him roar. His voice would beat Dan Webster ' s, and reach ten blocks or more. We ' re mighty glad he ' s with us for at least another year Because to see his smiling face just fills you up with cheer: No matter where you meet him, his hat he ' ll always doff, But the smile will remain forever the same: it simply won ' t come off. Last, but not least, we ' ll have you understand Cnmes Mr. Shick. the baby, but gracious sake o ' land ! How he dues pound it to you. Freshman, Juniors, all. He never heard of mercy or mercy ' s gentle call. He ' s stern and strict and serious and never wears a smile, You ' ve got to watch your turn and take it. he ' ll give no second trial. But never mind, he ' s dandy and he ' s got his business fine And we ' re getting Mathematics to every curve and sign. But of course he ' s going to leave us. that ' s always just the way, When we really get a teacher, we can ' t cough up the pay. In basket-ball he ' s " scrum. ' ' the best that can be found: With him you ' d see us star in all the country ' round. Of love and all its riddles he knows an awful sight: And notes of all description he figures out just right. No matter what the symbols you might adopt and use, He simply says. " Well, Meyers, I ' ll read it if you choose. " When he ' s gone we ' ll miss him as many another will. Next year, how many maidens will hold his memory still As lovingly and tender as if he still were theirs: For one. how very lonely the hall-way and the stairs! Since now my story ' s ended, what do you suppose! My mind has greatly altered on coming near the close. I find this bunch of teachers not near so cross and mean As when I started writing. I tried to make them seem. I ' ve observed they ' re always busy and now 1 plainly see They ' re working every minute to help just you and me. They want us to be noble, to be true and honor bright That our victories may he glorious in life ' s lung strenuous fight. And now, dear teachers, truly, I ' ll tell you what we ' ll do. We ' ll make an honest effort to have your dreams come true. We ' ll stick to school and study, we ' ll fight for the good square deal, And whatever our work, we ' ll do it with all our might and zeal. Now here ' s to you in the future, when you ' re scattered far and wide May God protect and keep you and ever be your guide. And here ' s success to crown you : we couldn ' t offer less To those who know not failure: The Faculty of A. H. S.

Florence is no exception to this rule. Her sunny disposition and quiet, forceful manner has placed her among the leaders of the Senior class. " Therefore to her the laurel leaves belong.

Which teaches the future ne ' er to fear And worthy deeds their true reward to find. To thee we sing thy love sincere, thy praise. Which in our loyal hearts secure we held As treasure dear, a prize for future days — While mem ' ry lives its joys shall ne ' er grow cold. To thee we sing, for much to thee we owe ; The strength of knowledge — ' tis a fount of life. The shield of pu rpose, scorning effort low, The sword of truth which conquers strife. For these and more — the bond of frendship true ; The tie secure which all our hearts unite — For thee, dear High School, praises high are due. All these kind gifts will guide us in the right. For by their aid bright laurels have we won. And hope, in future, grander heights to gain That by our lives and the good that we have done The world may know thy care was not in vain. Oh. High School dear, do bless thy children true As here we gather ' round thy altar fair. And now to thee we bid a last adieu To meet new scenes, new lessons and new care. — MTR1EL W ATKINS. 3Jtmt0r GUtxBB Officers President ' David Palfreyman Vice-Presiden t Frances Robertson Secretary-Treasurer Helen Kunkle Poet Edith Honess Historian Ina Storey- Motto No crown without the dust of labor.

Honored by all who know him, respected by every student, loved by the little ones who flock to him at recess time to have their pencils sharpened, Albert W. Wilcox — better known as Bert — has won a most en- viable place in the hearts of all. Never too weary to smile at the close of a long- day ' s labor, never shirking from those tedious little tasks which a janitor finds to do, always ready to help in any undertaking which may benefit the school, he has attained the place. " Second to None " in the long list of the school ' s genial janitors. Mr. Wilcox, believing that each day in the year is the best day, goes about his work with a bright and merrm smile. So here ' s to Bert, and may he retain in the years to come the same position in the hearts of all that he has so honorably wo n ; and may he live to see the tree of his endeavors blossom forth and bear fruit that will benefit all who partake of it. o loarit of Ouratimt The Board of Education of a system of city schools is the must important body of men in the community. Ii assumes the responsibility for the future citizenship of the community; it has in iis control the mental, moral, and physical welfare of the school child. Large sums of public money are entrusted to its care to spend eco- nomically for the comfort of the pupils. This body of three men assumes the above respon- sibilities with meager pay. The board is elected by the City Council. One member is elected each year and holds his office for three years. The new term of office begins the first of August of each year. The three men comprising the Hoard of Education in Angola are Dr. F. B. Humphreys, President; Mr. I . L. Wambaugh, Secretary; and Mr. Charles A. Yotter, Treasurer. These persons are bus)- men and exercise a great deal of business tact in the discharge of their du- ties. They are men who possess abundantly the pro- gressive American spirit flavored with conservatism so necessary in public work. I ' nder their efficient leader- ship the Angola Public Schools take their place in the front rank of the educational interests of Indiana. Atlilrttrs Athletics are valued and approved because they have a genuine place in a complete education, and because they give an opportunity for the de- velopment of interest and an enthusiastic school spirit in regard to physical! training; but after all, the supreme object of this type of education, is to develop physique and health in all rather than athletic ability in a few. The true end of physical training i- no; an athlete, a professional type of personality, but a well developed, thoroughly prepared man or woman. Tthletics become, therefore, an incentive to work and the mean- to an end rather Than an end in itself. The high school should stand for all athletic actiivties conducive to good health and symmetrical physical development. Corrective and body! develoj ing exercises, as well as recreative games, should form the basis of all outdoor and indoor athletics. It is to be hoped that in the near future Angola High School may enter upon the plane where she belong and give work in apparatus exercises, tumbling, wrestling, and fencing, a- well as in basket ball and base ball. In the latter part of last September, an association was formed to control all branches of athletics in the high school in conformity with the rule- and regulations of the Indiana High School Athletic Association. The local organization was controlled further by Faculty supervision. ( ur athletic activities have been confined almost entirely to basket ball. !n tin- line of sport we feel that we have been very successful, taking all thing ' s into consideration. When we started in last fall with two of the previous year ' s men. conditions seemed very favorable; but in the hardest part of the schedule one of these men dropped out. compelling us to develop an almost entrely new team. The boys responded with their best efforts and fought for every game with true sportsman-like courage; and as a re- sult we came out at the end of the season with a good per cent, of the games. The boys are to be congratulated on the class of students with whom tluy came in contact in the meets. Nowhere did we find a rough, boiserous element, such as sometimes bring athletics into disrepute. This shows that athletics have been placed in the high schools of the slate for a purpose and under proper supervision. As a result of this proper management and lofty purpose, athletics are in the schools to stay. We are glad to see the girls take enough interest in athletics to organ- ize a basket ball team in the early part of the season. They did not play as many games as the boys. However, they put in some good practice and thoroughly enjoyed the games played. At the end they had won two games and lost two. The members of the A. 11. S. A.

I bid you wel- come here this afternoon. We are very grateful for the interest shown in us in the past and for your interest at the present time, manifested by your presence here this afternoon. This is our last day of school, and we are both .clad and sorry that this is the case: glad t i have been able to do four years of high school work, but sorry that our happy high school day,- are over. Although the friendships among the members of the Class of Nineteen Hundred Eleven will always he warmly continued, yet full well we know it will not be that same close friendship which has attended us through the years of our high school life. We realize now as we have never realized before what it means to have a high school education. We can hardly think of ourselves as we would lie without the knowledge of Latin, Science and the other branches of study common to a high school course, and the incidental lectures which have been rendered to us in the class-room and the office. If we had finished only the Eighth Grade work, or if we had dropped out of school during the Si phomore or Junior year, how sad we would feel to attend the commence- ment exercises of this graduating class! We are certainly very fortunate to have the opportunity to graduate, especially from the schools of today. The schools which our fathers and grandfathers attended, did not pos- sess the advantages which belong to our schools today. In their day greater sacrifices ha 1 to be made in order that the}- might attend school: and only those things were taught which were absolutely necessary. Many of the subjects found in the curriculum today were not known well enough to be taught in those days. But as time passed by the schools were improved, and they have steadily advanced until we now have the well ecpiipped schools of today. We do not value sufficiently the sacrifices that have been made for us by our parents, nor do we always remember the wonderful patience which our teachers have always shown with us. But today, as we k ok back over our school life, we can. in a measure, realize our indebtedness to those who have made our graduation possible. Since we have enjoyed so man)- privileges and benefits in the public school, it is our duty to make the most of these advantages in the future by making the most we can of ourselves. Our appreciation of the efforts of the preceding generation will lie shown by what we. the present generation, do for the next. It is evident that all of us will not take up the same line of work: but let us make the most of our opportunities. There are none of us who will say that education is not always worth while, for we know that nothing great is accomplished in which education does not play an impotant part. The advancement of the world is brought about largely through edu- cation: and if we live up to our possibilities the generation which follows us will he better for our effort. If every one could have the start in life which the members of this graduating class have received, the progress of fill urc years would be marked indeed. But I know you are anxious for the program which is to follow, and I trust you will enjoy it. Although our past history is known to you, yet our historian will bring up facts of our illustrious past that have escaped from your memories ; we are always interested in things to come, and so we shall be pleased to learn something of our future from our prophetess; by our class will we give up the things fur which we will not have further use: lastly, our valedictorian will give you the parting message of our class. Therefore, with much pleasure, in behalf of the Class of Nineteen Hun- dred Eleven, i bi i von welcome to this occasion, which !s to c.s tin greatest all -WILMA COY SENIOR CLASS HISTORY In September, 1907, forty-six trembling little Freshmen made their ap- pearance at the doors of the A. H. S. They came with spirits high and presented to their leader their hard earned material from which to fashion their crafts to sail life ' s sea. Under wise guidance they all started from port but, alas, some were wrecked and heard from never more! However, these unfortunate ones were few for the most of them had builded their barks well and could over- come any difficulty that presented itself. By the first of June these little crafts entered port and could see that fancy of their dreams, the Sophomore sea. All had done their work so well, fashioning their vessels and steering clear of the rocks, that they were per- mitted to enter that new sea. During their voyage as Sophomores, they encountered so many more rocks that they looked upon their former voyage as smooth and easy sailing. The most dangerous rock was that of Geometry. But because the barks were so strong and their pilot so good, they steered for and safely reached the Junior port. The Junior sea looked storm}- and rough but the voyagers took heart and started out bravely. Some fell prey to that terrible monster. Cicero, but with the aid of their companions, they overcame him and forced him to beg for mercy. When these storm-tossed barks reached the Senior port, they were sadly disabled; but with some repairing they set sail on that wondrous Senior sea. All struggled hard on that last voyage, cheering and helping one another. Their barks were scarred and weather beaten, indicating that the voyage had been a strenuous one. —FLORENCE GILMORE. REACTION IS EQUAL TO ACTION [n all the universe, rest is nowhere to be found. The winds that come and go; the ocean that throbs ceaselessly along its shore; the eirth that soars about the sun; the light that darts through space — all bear witness to a universal law of nature. No energy is ever lost. The form changes, it may be, but the eye of science readily detects it, and drives the aiuient element from its hiding place, unchanged. Energy may disappear from the earth, still: " Somewhere yet that atom ' s force Moves the light-poised universe. " It was left to Sir Isaac Newton t. . throw into a brief generalization .hh ' of the most comprehensive, as well as one of the most significant, of all of Nature ' s laws. " Action is equal to reaction, and in the contrary direction " — this was the great scientist ' s deduction from the whole range of physical facts. Of the positive affirmation in the statement of the principle, men no longer entertain the slightest doubt. The most familiar observations, such as the bird beating the air with its wings; the fish driving its fins against the water; the cannon ball hurling itself forward from the impact of the powder ' s force — these and a thousand other common facts of life destroy all chance to doubt. To reverse the statement, however, and assert, negatively, that " reaction is equal to action. " is at once to introduce less familiar lines of thought. Judged by the usual habits of thought and conduct, action appears to be the main, if not indeed, the sole consideration. That the bird should put forth its wings to fly; that the fish should put forth its fins to swim; that the torch should be put to the powder — this, to the average way of thinking, constitutes the supreme consideration. But, it may be fairly asked, what of the effect produced by all these displays of energy? What will the beat- ing of its wings do for the bird? What will the igniting of the powder do for the cannon ball — it may be for the history of the race? Manifestly, the reaction is sublimely important. We have now come to that day in our lives wherein the practical, rather than the scientific, application of the principle is of deepest interest to us. With the foundation of our education laid, and a practical life of action now- open to us, we have just reason to feel that we are called upon to consider, not simply what w : ork we are to do in this world, but what that work, what- ever it may be, shall do for us. If action is equal to reaction, and in the contrary direction, what may we venture to hope may come to us in the end, in the nature of reactions, for all the efforts we may make, for all the ambitions and desires which we may spend our lives to gratify? Let us consider a few simple ambitions. Suppose this day we are concerned for office, for the honors and dis- tinctions which positions, social and civil, confer upon us. Still the voice of ambition will call upon us t o be cheered by the praises and honors which the desiie for office will vield, and yet there is the calm insistent voice of conscience to remind us of our dangers, and of the tremendous powers for reacting- upon our characters, which such positions inevitably bring. Thoughtful men of our age are just beginning to realize the importance of the principle of the interaction between " office and the man. " Little by little an entirely new range of questions are coming into the mind. Does the man make the office, or does the office make the man? How does office affect men ' s individuality? P . ' ce develop character, or undermine it? ,-, r i j- • - man, id cou! , • i ,-,- r ,- i liefore the die is c?° .

A cumbrous load Disguising oft the wretch of human kind. Studied in arts of hell, in wickedness refined. " Suppose a life of ease, luxury and pleasure now appears to us the highest good. Are we able to look ahead and to consider what the reaction of such a life must necessarily be? George Elliott in her " Romola, " gave to the world one of the best illustrations of this kind of life. In her character of " Tito " she portrays the life of a youth who entered upon life with the great- est possibilities. But Tito quickly learned to avoid the steep highway of life, and to choose instead the selfish path of ease. He slipped out of the tilings that were difficult and unpleasant; he desired the things that were comfortable and appealing to the senses. At length a harvest day came. A mind degraded, a body dishonored, a wife driven to despair, a father goaded to desperation, a most horrible justice pursuing him and overtaking him in the end — this was the reaping of his sowing. George Elliott said, " You talk of substantial good, Tito! Is it good that we should harden our hearts against the wants and hopes of those who have depended upon us? There are so man}- things wrong and difficult in the world, that no man can be great — he can hardly keep himself from wickedness — unless he gives up thinking about pleasure or rewards and strives to endure what is hard and painful. " Reaction is equal to action. The best word for us today is that old, familiar, venerable word, Duty. There can be no great success in life with- out there is first a great effort. If the cause is cheap, the result must be poor and unworthy. " Let us then be up and doing. With a heart for any fate. Still achieving, still pursuing. Learn to labor and to wait. " In the end, may it appear for us all that life has yielded strength, good- ness and happiness as the reaction of our endeavor. . —NED ETTINGER SOAP BUBBLES It was one of those rare days in June when all the world seems wrapped in nature ' s splendor, that I, while lounging lazily about in my room, sought tn amuse myself by exploring the contents of an old and worn-out trunk. I raised the lid and almost instantly my glance fell upon an old clay pipe with which I had blown soap bubbles many " detects 1 ? ?. Again the fancy seized me to indulge in my childish pastimted. Energy may aisa F1 ... hat atom s torce 1 was soon engaged in blowing suddenly attracted by the picture wnich appear ,„ n,, t mc ■ vegetation indicated that the landscape might be a tropical one. The scene was a village and the people, whom I supposed were native, were of a dusky color. Among these natives I noticed a few people who wore Ameri- can dress. I studied a few moments and then it came to me that this surely must be in the Philippines. Naturally I watched the Americans. At last I saw two women enter a large building. It was of simple structure without sides, having only a roof and a floor. There were many seats placed about in the room, (if it could be called one.) The two women took their places at a desk. Soon a large number of native boys and girls came into the room and sat down. One of the women arose and began to talk. I thought her face seemed familiar. Who could it be? I soon discovered, with surprise, that it was Florence Gilmore. Then I looked again at the woman at the desk and saw Wilma Coy. Who would have thought that any of the gradu- ates from A. H. S. in 191 1 would become teachers in the Philippines! The next scene carried me back to America to the little town of Angola. In a neat and cozy little room were three women industriously sewing on an elaborate white dress. Although there were streaks of gray in their hair. I recognized them to be Mabel Rinehart. Wava Phillips, and Orinda Lazenby. The dress looked very much like a wedding dress, and for the life of me. I couldn ' t tell to which one of the trio the gown belonged, they were all so intent and interested. Put when I looked into the matter, over it, and at it, I discovered that those girls were just trying to cover up their big " gobbly " stitches. I heard one of them snap up, " Well, it ' s good enough for Enola Hendry anyway, especially if she is going to marry that college fellow. The next picture was a beautiful scene at a summer resort on the At- lantic. ( )n the beautiful lawn in front of the large hotel were scattered groups of merry laughing girls. Among them I picked out Alta Gilmore, Joyce Creel and Faye Burt. Their coquettish glances were directed toward a certain young gentleman who was sitting on the veranda. I wondered who the young man could be that was causing so much excitement among the girls. ( h. yes! It was that fellow from Orland whom I had seen about Angola a few years ago. The following scene was in mid-air. An aeroplane with three occu- pants was slowly wending its way across the heavens. I could not imagine anyone I knew sailing around in an aeroplane. But as it came nearer and nearer the features of Alda Weir. ( )kel Mark and Xola Hanselman were plainly distinguishable. Alda was managing the machine, and I thought she was just learning for suddenly the aeroplane, occupants and all became entangled in a tree top several rods below. Then I saw what before had escaped my notice: a man, of course, of the fat and jolly type was pulling taffy from the limb of that selfsame tree. If you tell me how a humming- bird knows where the flower with the honey cup is. I will tell you why sweetness with rosy cheeks and flashing eyes, even when sailing around on the diz y heights of the aeroplane boulevard, sniffs sweetness at a distance and desires nothing so much as to be fed a little " tatty. " " Like attracts like. " says the sage of the Physics cla s. Then the bubble burst and I quickly blew another, hoping to see the outcome, but in this I was disappointed for the scene changed again. This time a country home came before me. It was a quiet looking place and all the buildings were painted white. In the barn door stood a woman shelling corn and throwing handfuls of the grain to flocks of pure white little chickens. Who was the woman, and why was everything painted white? Surely it must have been Lois McCool, for she always had a fond- ness fir white. 1 next saw a street scene in Angola. Everything had the appearance of an election day. At the polls several women were voting, who seemed to enjoy it. Soon Yabel Fast. Bess Harding and Hazel Kirk took their places among the rest. At last they had gained the privilege for which they had worked in the Parliamentary Law Class of iqii. In the fourth bubble was a very large hospital, bearing on its top, a cross. Could this be a Catholic hospital? It certainly was. for there were Lotta Lazenby, Pearl Brennan and Muriel Watkins richly attired in the black- robes of sisterhood. I watched them for some time gliding noiselessly in and out of the large hall, ministering to the wants and cares of the sick. I was so interested that I could have watched them much longer, but — pop went the bubble ! Wondering what would come next, I blew another. In this one I saw a large theater. The house was crowded with spectators and the actors and actresses were playing, " As You Like It. " The audience was being en- tertained by the pranks of the jester. I was just a little surprised when I saw it was Clifton Freligh. I could almost hear some of his " back-alley English " he appeared so natural. I would surely have become reminiscent at this point but a " between act " in these word-, floated to my attentive ears: " You ' re an old hen, You ' re one old hen. You ' re two old hens. You ' re three old hens. " The figure of the buffoon still lingered in my mind, and a combination of the two things caused me to jump at the conclusion that Mr. Freligh was calling me names: and in less time than it takes to tell it, my facile fist was ready for a blow, but lo, there stood Lois Castell singing those words over again. She must have been the original warbler, but whether the words of the lyric were directed toward the accompanist. Neva Dewey, or toward the violinist. Xed Ettinger. whose bobbed musician-like hair indicated that glory covered the head of the prodigy, I could not determine. The audience sat moved to tears by the melody of the strain, wholly unconscious of the meaning of the words, which they considered Italian. They did not recog- nize as easily as I that time-worn phrase of Lois ' greener days. In the next bubble I saw an inventor ' s shop. About the room was scattered various musical instruments. At the table sat Leighton Wells. He was just finishing a new invention, one on which he could play twenty instruments at one time. I knew from the expression on his face and the motion of his lips that he said, " Bless my soul, it works! " Near him stood a lady with light hair and brown eyes, who was as much interested as the inventor himself. It was Aria Pence. There they were, Aria and Leighton, so happy in their own little realm that they cared very little for the busy world outside. The picture then faded, but another met my view, a winter scene of a country farm home. Inside the house was a Christmas tree laden with many gifts, while at the table were assembled many people. There were children of all ages. I counted them : one. two, three. — yes. there were nine. At the head of the table sat a stern looking man. whom I knew at once to be Ralph Orwig. Then I passed a small country church, near which, poised as it seemed in mid-air, was Warner Woodring. I thought at first that he must have mastered all the knowledge on terra firma and had taken to the exploration of the aerial regions, and my next thought was that he must have discovered some new faculty related to the fourth dimension for propelling himself " through atmosphere and through air. " But I still had another think com- ing, for the girl walking along the road carrying Warner ' s basket of greens proved to be his sister; and the enigma was solved. Warner was walking the telegraph wire for fear of getting his shoes muddy. The bubble burst. I blew many more, but no more pictures appeared. 1 laid the pipe gently down and began to review what I had seen. It seemed to me that I had been on a long journey, but whether I was pleased or displeased with what I had seen, I could not tell for before the question was fully solved I was sleeping in my chair, dreaming of other lands and seas. — CLELA OMSTEAD.

(Seal) —CLASS ( )F NINETEEN HUNDRED ELEVEN VALEDICTORY When as Freshmen, we entered High School, the four years intervening between us and the day of graduation seemed an almost interminable period of time. By some marvelous process, best known to the long-suffering faculty, knowledge began slowly to replace the green coloring matter so prominent in our composition. Time flew apace, and today we realize with a start tint the time has come when we lose our membership in the student body of the Angola High School. We feel genuine regret, not that we are about to join with others in life ' s struggle, hut that the ties of class comradeship, which have bound us to one another as classmates and even, incredible as it may seem, to the Faculty, must be broken. The strength of these ties may be judged from the fact that some of us who are now Seniors entered school together in the Primer Class twelve years ago. Almost painful, too, is the realization of freedom from the decrees of the Board of Education, with which we have so often come in contact. We shall miss that Board of Education also, which hung conveniently near in the wood-shed and which came in violent contact with us on the evenings of tho-c warm days of spring when all nature called, and the only logical method of procedure was to " grind. " Yet we would not have it otherwise, for we now see the consummation of four vears of hard labor. learne 1 that if we wish rd set and i the school Until recently, the term commencement seemed ill-applied to an event which seemed to terminate our school life. It seemed, rather, the end of all things. But now we see more clearly and feel that we are about to be pro- moted into the oldest school in existence, the University of Experience. We must face its tests and quizzes, and have our deportment judged by less kind critics than our present instructors. During our course in High School, we ha succeed, we must keep our work up to the Stan a good one the standard must be high. What is our standard? To a certain extent each of us must fix his own. for it will be his highest conception of duty to God and man. We must seek such a standard earnestly and mthSwt? selfishness, and make our achieve- ments conform to it. By doing this against all the resistance which we shall meet in the world, we shall not only have a high record for efficiency in life ' s school, but we will be fitted for another, richer life after graduation. It is the true knight ' s creed to right the wrong. As we look about us, we see great evils threatening the life of the nation : greed for unlawful wealth, lack of patriotic devotion, self-seeking in politics. Analysis of all of these show their basic element to he selfishness, the desire of man to ac- quire more than is lawfully his share. If the true standard of life were universally adopted, such selfishness could not exist. It is for us, therefore, to keep tl is standard before the eyes of men. The world may laugh at us, declaring that each class of graduates has its panacea for the world ' s ills. History shows that it is only the dreamer who has not manhood enough to put his ideas into service, who may b e sneered at. We trust that we have the necessary qualities to do our duty. These qualities have been largely developed by our work in this school. Now we must formally sever our connection with it, but we shall never lose our affection for it. This affection with gratitude, and the old spirit of class loyalty, will remain with us forever. With these sentiments warm in our hearts, and with high hopes for the future, to the school as an institution, to the body of under-classmen with whom we have associated, and to the Faculty, who have so greatly aided us in fixing the true standard of life, the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Eleven bids a fond and reluctant farewell. —WARNER WOODRLNG. £ mtor pay Cast of character in the order of their appearance.

An individual usually seeks a private teacher in order to become proficient as a performer on a musical instrument or as a vocalist, but our High School course seeks to give the pupil a general survey of music as a science and an art. which every cultured individual should have even if he never becomes a vocalist or an instru- mentalist. The High School seeks to increase the pupil ' s power t i under- stand, appreciate and enjoy music; ti acquaint him with the history of the ail. as well as with the individuals who have had a part in that history: and to make known to him what the best productions in music are. ( Ipportunity i- given in the churns work t learn some of the best standard songs. The pupils are urged to seize every opportunity for hearing the best renditions of musical selections, which will aid them in creating an appreciation for musical talent and production. Art Art is not a thing to be done, but the best way of doing whatever needs to be done. If art is true, it has a very vital relation to everything we do. It touches the little things of life as well as the great things; it influences the child in the school room a well as the artist in the studio. In other words art is not what we do but how we do it. It is believed that the study of art can be presented in such a way as to equip the high school student with the knowledge of the principles of art. This will give him a better appreciation of good work and a fuller under- standing of art in its relations to his own life; namely, in domestic and ap- lied arts. With this truth in view, there is great hope for the future progress of art. What we want is truth and beauty in its broadest sense. These may be obtained by seeking honestly and unselfishly for the development of the true spirit of art. manual imnj iHamtal wratnmq During recent years, there has been increasing demand for vocational ' raining in the public high schools of the country. To supply this demaril courses of study in Manual Training have been organized. Three leading aims may be noted: (11 To give some skill in the use of common tools; (2) To develop the power to participate effectively in group activities; (3) To assist pupils in an intelligent choice of a life work. The third aim is much more important than current practice recognizee if not indeed the must important of all. The facts here are, briefly, that the choice of a vocation is the most momentous decision of the whole life; that the great majority make selection at an early age; that the selection is or- dinarily a matter of chance and temporary expediency rather than the em- bodiment of a deliberate judgment regarding one ' s special lines of ability; that, apart from the shop, the school tends to send the boy out with strong bias towards commerce and away from the industries; and that the school shops, therefore, present the one chance under the conditions of modern town and city life for the boy with latent mechanical aptitudes to " find himself. " The Manual Training courses in our schools were extended this year to include the first year of the High School. A class of eight boys have been taking the work ottered. The boys have taken keen interest in the work through the entire year, and the results obtained have been such as to warrant the further extension of the training courses so as to include the upper high school classes. The public at large will be given an opportunity to see and examine the articles made in our shops through an exhibit at the Angola Fair this fall. JJarltanuuttanj ICaut The Pariamentary Law class was organized in Novembei by Mr [.etts. The members of this class agreed to call themselves Parliamentarians. The purpose of the organization was to make the students of the Angola High School proficient in the laws governing all assemblies. The class consisted of about twenty-five members of the High School, who met on Tuesday evening of each week. At the first meetings a constitution and by-laws were adopted and the class at once began work in earnest. Roberts ' Rules of Order governed all steps taken by the assembly in its work. National and state questions were discussed and debated. Before the year ended, every student of the class was able to take the chair, carry out measures and put motions through correctly. ■With the help of Mr. Letts, who has proved an able and willing in- structor, the pupils have made the work a success. The drill in Parliamen- tary Law has been found to be very helpful by the students of this year ' s class. It is to be hoped that a class will be organized for this special work in each succeeding year. The faculty have recognized the value of the work, and will grant credit for it. LITER IRY Armas thr lUurr " I ' m simply not going to paint any more, " exclaimed Marguerite, and her easel and brush fell from her lap to the floor with a crash. " The colors simply won ' t jibe. I know how they ought to look but I can ' t make them look that way : " Marguerite Jongewaard, a girl of sixteen, sat gazing from the window of her little home which was situated among the foothills of the Cumber- land mountains in Kentucky. Marguerite had been fortunate enough to graduate from the village high school that spring. As she was an only child, her parents had tried to persuade her to remain at home with them. lint, like all girls, she had high ambitions; and although she could sing and play very nicely, her one great hope was that she might some day become a great artist. She spent most of her summer afternoon in sketching little scenes along the river, a little stream which ran through a valley just below the cottage in which she lived. She tried to paint a picture of everything that appealed to her, but as she had never made a thorough study of perspective, her pictures were often crude and ill proportioned. On this particular afternoon, her father and mother had gone to the village and left her alone in the cottage. As she sat gazing out of the win- dow, she saw the mail man ' s carriage approaching the house. She bounded out of the house and down the road to meet him. The man handed Marguerite a package, and as she took it he noticed an expression of disappointment come over her face. But she was a picture fair to look upon. Her brown curly hair was coiled in a neat braid around her head and a large black bow of ribbon served as a back ground to her rosy cheeks and sparkling brown eyes. Her dress was a dainty pink gingham made with low neck and elbow sleeves. ( h, Mr. Mailman, " she cried. " That ' s another circular from an art school, and when you know father won ' t let me go, what makes you leave them? " " 1 know it is too bad that you can ' t go, " he replied, " but. my dear girl, think of how lonely it would be here in the valley if you would go away. Perhaps I can bring you something better to-morrow. " After the mailman left. Aiargaret strode back into the house, tearing the package open as she went. " h, what a pretty picture, " she said when she caught sight of the cover. " A real landscape with a beautiful river in it j ' ist like mine. " At this point she turned around and glanced down the valley. " Sure enough, " she added, " there ' s a little road leading down i the bridge which crosses the river, just like ours, and a wood on the other s ' de, some blue sky and oh. so many pretty things! I believe they have been down here and have made this little picture all on purpose for the catalogue. Well, anyway, I ' m going to paint one just like it. " She ran into the house and soon returned with her painting outfit. After she had arranged herself comfortably on the bank of the stream with all her material scattered about her, she began to sketch, first from the picture on the cover of the book, and then from the scene in front of her. She worked very hard For some time, and then she noticed that the road in her picture did not curve as gracefully as the real one which ran down the slope, made a slight curve, crossed the bridge, and then disappeared in the wood beyond, " Oh, dear. " she sobbed, " I do wonder what ails it. " Then she worked again even harder than before but with very little improvement. At last she threw herself back upon the bank and burst into tears, sobbing, " Why can ' t I paint like other folks. " She wept bitterly until she fell asleep. In the course of an hour or so. we might have seen another carriage drive up the slope toward the Jongewaard home. It was Air. and Mrs Jongewaard returning from town. As they drew near the stream Mrs. Jongewaard exclaimed, " Why, John, what can that be there on the bank? " They both looked hard to see who or what it might be. A few moments brought them to the side of the prostrate figure on the bank. Neither of the parents spoke, but both pairs of eyes looked upon the picture which lay in the girl ' s lap. " I see it all, " remarked the mother glancing wonderingly down the valley where a most beautiful scene met her gaze. The sun. slowly dis- appearing behind the trees, sent its rays through the openings between the leaves, reflected in the quiet little stream and made a beautiful picture. " The poor girl. " added Mrs. Jongewaard. " has tried to paint a picture of the valley and she has become discouraged because she couldn ' t make it look right. " " Mother. " said Mr. Jongewaard as he stood looking at the catalogue, " let ' s send her to this school. It isn ' t so very far away from here. I know it will be mighty hard to have her away, but it is no more than right that we should give her a chance to develop her talent. " That night they told Marguerite of their plan to send her to college. It made her the happiest girl in Kentucky. She could not sleep a wink. All that week from early in the morning until late at night a dressmaker was engaged in making pretty frocks for Marguerite. Letters were written to the school, and all arrangements were made with the matron of the dormi- tory where Marguerite intended to stay. ( )n the following Monday afternoon, a carriage bearing Mrs. Jongewaard and Marguerite drove down the road. They were followed by Mr. Jonge- waard in a wagon carrying Marguerite ' s trunk. They were all on their way to the station. Marguerite said nothing until the carriage reached the bridge. Then she glanced up and down the stream, and just as the hack weels of the carriage struck on the other side she remarked. " Mother. 1 have crossed the river. " The good little mother bit her lips and calmly said, " Yes. dear. " Then glancing at her daughter, she noticed a few tears trickling down her cheeks. Marguerite, sobbing, said. " But it will be nice, won ' t it, if I learn to .paint real good, even if I do have to leave the dear valley for a while? People can ' t always be at home, can they? " " No, my child, but you must think of father and me quite often, and write us a letter every day telling us how you are getting along; for you know you are all we have and we are sacrificing a great deal to let you go. " " I ' m glad you said those last few words, mother, because, maybe, I wouldn ' t have thought of that. " ' Mr. Jongewaard accompanied .Marguerite on her journey and returred a few days later with the good news that she liked the place very much, although it was not quite so pretty there as it was back in the valley; for there was no place on earth so dear to Marguerite as that, especially the little river. Every day the mailman ' s carriage was seen driving up the road toward the Jongewaard cottage, and every day an anxious faced mother came out to meet him and receive whatever news he brought. The winter passed, but very slowly for Mr. and Mrs. Jongew : aard. The evenings seemed so long. ( M ' ten the} ' sat by the fire-side and tried to entertain each other by reading aloud. Sometimes there would be a pause when neither one would say a word. As they gazed into the fire and watched the bright flames leap up here and there, it was evident that their thoughts were straying to their daughter, the hope of both lives. They were aware from the letters that time was bringing a change over Mar- guerite. It was just as she had said on the day of her departure, she had crossed the river. She was beginning to realize something of this great world, and probably at this very moment was taking a sip of love from Nature ' s jeweled cup. Spring came and with it the warm sunshine, the birds and flowers. The valley seemed to awaken from a long sleep. One day the mailman drove up and, with a broad smile on his face as he handed Mrs. Jongewaard a letter, said: " I just feel sure that there is some real good news in that for you 1 don ' t know why I think so, but I do. " Mrs. Jongewaard opened the letter and read as follows: " Tomorrow night, dear mother. Ere the birds in the valley go to rest. There ' ll be another little bird Huddled safe in its own dear nest. " MARGUERITE. The next evening just before sundown, the train hurried into the little station and Marguerite alighted, her face wreathed in smiles. She was greeted by her father and mother and a crowd of jolly high school boys and girls. That night as the little family was seated around the cozy fire-place, Marguerite related many of the good times she had had. " And, oh. mother. " she exclaimed, " really 1 didn ' t know there were so many good people in this world. Every one was so good to me; but it does seem good to be back in the valley once more. Tomorrow morning I ' m going out to sit on the bank of the river and make a picture of the little valley. I ' m sure that 1 can make one now that will suit me. " She opened her trunk and got out the pictures which she had com- pleted. Then, sitting- down on the foot-stool at the foot of the big Morns chair in which her mother sat, she began to display them on her mother ' s lap while her father watched attentively over the back of the chair. " ( h. 1 tnel the dearest lady, " broke in Marguerite, " who has studied voice in Europe four years. I made a copy of these pictures for her, and as pay for them she gave me vocal lesseins. I didn ' t tell you anything about it for I wanted to surprise you. She told me that she would make us a visit some time. Wouldn ' t that be lovely? " After she had shown all her paintings. Mrs. Jongewaard looked up into her husband ' s face and smiled, and although neither of them spoke, their hearts were filled with a joy that words cannot express. Her work to them was wonderful. " Now, little one, " interrupted her father, " let ' s hear you sing. " " Oh, father, don ' t call me that! I ' m almost a young lady now. " " Forgive me, child, " he said. " I forgot. " His eyes filled with tears but he was careful not to let Marguerite see them. She quietly opened the piano, which had not been touched during her absence, and struck a few chords. Then she lifted her voice and in clear, sweet tones sang: " The valley is going to sleep, The birds in their nest are still ; And the maple branches bend and break Over the leafless hill. " The valley is going to wake. The birds in their nests will sing; And the maple branches bud and break Into the leaves of spring. " " Now. there is just one thing more I would like to tell you before I retire, " she said, as she turned around on the piano stool. " Don ' t stop. " said her father. " You don ' t know how good it sounds to hear your sweet voice once more. " " I ' ll sing some more tomorrow, " put in Marguerite, " and then, when Bob comes. " " Whom did you say? " asked her mother. " Who is Bob? " Marguerite, blushing, glanced toward the floor and did not see the knowing look which Mrs. Jongewaard gave her husband. " Well, it was this way, mother, " replied Marguerite, her face all aglow. " Bob Brenton, or Mr. Brenton as I should call him, was one of the instructors at school. He took a great deal of interest in me while I was there, and was so good to me. One night when we were talking, I told him about the little valley, the river, and just beyond it our cottage. He told me that some time this summer, if you were willing, he would like to come down and make us a visit. Now, you don ' t care, do you? I told him you wouldn ' t. He just wants to get some pictures of the pretty scenery around here. " Again the eyes of the parents met. " Of course we will enjoy having him come. " said the mother, " but why didn ' t you tell us about him before? " " Well, I suppose I should have, " she said rather reluctantly, " but I was afraid you would make me come home. Bob sings beautifully. " she added, " and when he comes we will sing for you. " The spring slipped by. Each afternoon found Marguerite in some pretty nook sketching from nature. Each day. also, the mailman made his way up to the little cottage. The letters which he delivered were not from Marguerite, but fur her. One evening about the middle of June. Marguerite took her accustomed stroll down to the bridge to watch the sun set. This was one of her daily pleasures. This evening she sat on a large stone by the bridge with her head resting in her hands, idly dreaming and humming to herself. The sun went down and darkness fell upon the little valley. She arose very quietly, intending to return home: but as she glanced down the road she saw the dim outline of a man coming toward her. For some unknown reason she went to meet him, and a few steps brought them together. The man extended his hand and said in a musical voice, " Marguerite! " She im- mediately recognized him and sprang into his arms with the joyful little cry, " I ' m so glad to see you! Why didn ' t you tell me you were coming today? " " Because I wanted to surprise you, " he said. The two happy people started toward the cottage. Bob recognized the bridge of which Marguerite had so often spoken. When they had reached the other side, he said: " Marguerite, we have crossed the river so you can not live very far from here, for you always told me ' Across the river. ' " ' So I did. " she answered with a laugh. That evening after Bob and Marguerite had sung a few songs for Mr. and Mrs. Jongewaard, Bob told them of a year which he had spent abroad. At the age of eighteen he had been taken abroad by a wealthy uncle to study art. After they had been there for a short time, his uncle began to gamble and deserted Bob, leaving him almost penniless. However. Bob determined not to return home until he had seen at least some of the great paintings. So he traveled from place to place, earning a little here and a little there. He stopped in a small hamlet and painted a few pictures which he sold for a large sum. He became a great friend of the artist to whom he sold the pictures and studied with him six months. After Bob had ac- quired fame and wealth abroad, he returned to his own country to accept a position as art instructor in the little college in Kentucky in which Margue- rite was a student. Bob and Marguerite spent the afternoons and part of the forenoons in sketching and painting pretty scenes and landscapes. Most of the evenings were spent at the piano. On the evening before the day of Bob ' s departure, he and Marguerite strolled down to the bridge. It was a beautiful moonlight night. They stood looking down into the water at their own reflections. The stars twinkled gayly here and there about them. ' " Bob, " said Marguerite, " don ' t you think this is a beautiful valley? Do you wonder why I longed for it when I was away? " " No, " he replied. " I want to live in this valley myself. Marguerite, I have a request to make of you tonight. Will yo grant it ? " " Oh, 1 don ' t know. " What is it? " she asked much unconcerned. " If you were sure that your father and mother were willing, would you? " She smiled and looked up into his eyes as she said, " Why, yes. I am always willing when I know they don ' t care. " " I want to know if you will join me in a journey down the stream of life? " Marguerite u nderstood his meaning and answered in her sweet way, " Yes, Bob, if mother and father are willing. " He took her by the hand and led her down the bank to the edge of the stream where a pretty little canoe was waiting for them. " This, " said he, " shall be yours and mine ; In it we will glide together. Xo matter how high the tide comes up. May it stand the test forever. " — BIRDEXA HAYWARD.

It is equally applicable to good as well as bad organizations. Religious organizations, fraternities, organizations for amusements, and sporting enterprises have made use of the word. Generally, at least in the public prints, it is made use of as a caption for items of gossip, of visitors, marriages, announcements of coming social events, and so on almost in- definitely. In the Angola High School, society means everything of a social nature which contributes to the good of the students who participate, whether the event is a select parlor party or a public function. During this year, the A. H. S. has given a prominent place to society; each class has enjoyed many happy gatherings. Members of all the classes celebrated Hallowe ' en. St. Patrick ' s Day. Valentine Day. and the birthday anniversaries of their friends in many quaint and interesting ways. The Senior girls gave a delightful reception to the Pioneer and A. H. S. basket ball boys; and a royal time was given to Mr. Shick at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Ettinger by the A. H. S. basket ball boys. The social affairs of Commencement week were the Faculty reception to the Seniors. Junior reception to the Seniors, and Senior Class Day and picnic. tunni Alumni larr-iain Keep, H.

We know the clothing business backwards, frontwards and in the middle. We have sold more clothes in the last ten years than any any other clothing store that we know of. We sell more clothes of one brand than all the other dealers put togelher and that brand of clothes !s the Kuppcnheimer brand — the best clothes that the brains of the world ever put together. We don ' t make Kuppcnheimer clothes our leaders because we are obliged to do so. There is no trade deal or inside funny business. We sell Kuppenheimer clothes and will continue to sell them — talk about them — and specialize them just as long as they make the best clothes on earth for the money. We can give a stronger guarantee on Kuppenheimer goods than any other brand would dare give. We guarantee every Kuppenheimer suit (or overcoat) bought here to be absolutely perfect in style in fit — in high grade vorkmanship — and to prove satisfactory in everv way, or vou can roll the good.« into a bundle and walk into our store at any time and get your mon ey back. We don " t want any man ' s money unless he is satisfied that we delivered the goods he thoght he was buying. The Kuppenheimer line is bigger and more stylish than any line of clothes to be found in Angola. We want you to come in tomorrow and look at some real clothes — all new suits — all new models — From the House of Kuppenheimer $13.00 to $30.00 Mr. Letts: " Is the Grand Jury a good thing?

B.— The Spectator surmises That Goodwin sells so much Because he advertises To beat the very Dutch JHarimta Aituts In a small village in a western state, there stood a prim little house where Ann and Fidelia Princeton resided. Fidelia, the elder, sat by the window with a letter in her hand which she was reading. She dropped it with a sharp exclamation. " Ann, " she called, " come here! Who ever heard tell of the like? " and throwing up her hands she looked the very picture of astonishment. Ann, a short, fat, little lady with a rather timid look on her face, came hurrying into the room. " Whatever is the matter, Fidelia? " she asked. Picking the letter up from the floor. Fidelia handed it to her sister. " Read that, " she said. " It ' s from brother John. " Fidelia read : My dear sisters: I wrote to you a few weeks ago and told you of the loss of my dear wife. I now have no home for ray only child, whom you have never seen. 1 would rather intrust my child to your care for a few years than to any other rela- tives, for 1 know that both of you will love Marion. I am going to Europe on business, but will send you a check every month sufficient for all expenses and also enough to repay you. Marion will leave here tomorrow morning. Your affectionate brother. JOHN PRIXCETOX. " How nice! " exclaimed Ann looking up from the letter. " Nice! " snapped Fidelia. " I suppose it will be nice to have a terror of a girl sixteen years old around here. Like enough she will want to en- tertain her beaux in the parlor, and have the blinds up, fading the carpet and ruining everything. I ' d like to know what ' s nice about that! I suppose there ' s no helping her coming, but I won ' t stand for all of her fly-a-way notions. " After thus expressing herself, she went into the kitchen in a huff. That evening, as the two ladies were talking in their little living room, the}- heard a rap at the door. Fidelia opened it. She saw a boy who ap- peared to be about nine or ten years old standing outside the door with a small valise in his hand. " Hello, Aunt, " he greeted her. " ' spectin ' me wasn ' t you? Dad said he wrote to you. " As he stepped inside, the lamplight revealed a shock of curly light hair and a pair of twinkling blue eyes. " But I — I — thought John ' s child was a girl named Marion. " gasped the astonished Fidelia. " And we didn ' t expect her until tomorrow night. " " Right you are there, " the boy said, seating himself on a chair and look- ing at his aunts curiously. " My name ' s Marion, but you are mistaken about the girl part. A girl — Ugh! It must have taken the letter quite a while to get here. Dad sent it day before yesterday.

" I am your Aunt Fidelia and she is your Aunt Ann. " said Fidelia primly. " All right, " he said, kicking at the rounds of the chair. " I ' ve got you fixed now. Say. are there many boys in this place? 1 told Dad I wouldn ' t stay if the} ' were all girls. " " I think ' it depends altogether n what your father, your Aunt Ann and J say about it whether you Max or not. If you are a very g 1 little boy we shall probabl) keep you; and now I think it is time for a boy of your age to be in bed; so I ' ll show you where you are to sleep. " " Why. I ' m not so awfully little, " said Marion indignantly. " I ' m ten years old. At home 1 didn ' t usually go to bed until ten o ' clock. " " When 1 was then years old, I went to bed strictly at eight o ' clock, and I want you to do the same. So kiss yi ur Aunt Ann good-night and follow me. " " Gee, kiss Aunt Ann good-night! That ' s a girl ' s trick, but I ' ll try it. " Walking up to her he gave her a restmnding kiss on the cheek, and then bolted after Fidelia. In a few moments Fidelia returned with a bewildered look on her face, and throwing up her hands exclaimed. " Whatever shall we do? This is worse than having a girl come! " In the morning Marion was greeted with a grim " good morning " from his Aunt Fidelia, and a bright smile from his Aunt Ann. ( hi his way to the table he managed to slyly step on the cat ' s tail. Poor Puss, not used to such treatment, got up with a scream and started for the back of the stove, knocking over a chair in her mad haste and creating a hub-bub in general, at which Ann laughed heartily while Fidelia only scowled. Marion soon gat acquainted in the village and made friends with a num- ber of hoys. " I just wouldn ' t stay here, " he told one of his playmates one day, " if it wasn ' t for Aunt Ann. Aunt Fidelia is so cross. This morning I came into the house and she made an awful fuss about a little mud that was on my shoes: and after I got those cleaned to suit her. I went back- in and sat down on a chair. She said also that I had scratched the chairs up so that she was ashamed to have any one come into the house. And I just got up, marched out of there and slammed the door after me good and hard. I suppose I ' ll get a good scolding when 1 go home to dinner. " The scolding which Marion was expecting came at the dinner hour. After dinner it was a very serious little boy who made up his mind to run away. However, he never once thought of where he was going. That evening Marion did not return to supper, which was quite singular. for he was always on hand at mealtime. Fidelia inquired at the home of some of Marion ' s playmates to see if he was there. He could not be found. and before long everybody in the little village knew that Marion was missing. It was about eleven o ' clock at night, and the men of the village were -till looking for Marion, when a wagon drove up to the Princeton house. Marion was lifted out half asleep by a farmer. The farmer said that he lived about What Shall It " Be? That ' s the perplexing question. Commencement is only a few days off and we ' ve simply got to deride upon something pretty soon.

If you want t know anything about the past, present, or future come and call on your Uncle and put him on the trail. When it comes to gathering information, ' Yours truly ' is right there. " yelled Pea-eye. " What ' s up? " asked Turnip Turner. " Come to it. come to it. " growled Tubby. " A fine enterprising bunch to have Hallowe ' en only a week off and not know it. " replied Pea-eye. " Didn ' t kick up all that fuss to tell us that, did you? " grunted Tubby. " Xaw, its the Long Pants Brigade. " The Amateurs had big brothers whom they called The Long Pants Brigade. There was great rivalry among the two sets of hoys, because the • Tier boys had more privileges than the younger ones. This made the Amateurs jealous. " What ' s up! Come on. loosen up! " growled the hunch. " Here it is then. " Pea-eye sighed. " The Long Pants Brigade ar e going to have doin ' s at Old Bilikin ' s Hall, and they ' re going to have girls in it and there ' s goin ' to be eatin ' s. " Tubby ' s gloom}- face began to brighten. " And we ' re goin ' to swipe the grub? " he asked. The Amateurs had a private meeting, and after this they surprised their parents by getting up with the sun instead of waiting to be pulled out of bed. Whenever one of the Amateurs was seen by anyone, he gen- erally had a box under his arm; and when asked what it contained, this would be the reply. " Aw, nothin ' . " Eventful conversations, such as the following took place when the Amateurs met : " What luck? " " Bully, got seven today. " " I iood ! I only got five. " " Where do you keep yours? I keep mine in an old wash-boiler I buried in the back yard. " ( ' n Hallowe ' en each Amateur devoured his supper quickly so as to be out and away on the affairs of the night. At least twelve fathers smiled inwardly while they wore stern faces and gave the usual warning. " And don ' t be out late added the mothers. " " Bill don ' t have to get in early. " objected Pea-eye. " He can stay out as long ps he wants to and nobody ever says anything to him. What ' s he going to do tonight? " Bill looked pleased and triumphant.

Soon all the Amateurs were rolling on the ground and nearly bursting with laughter. " iet read}- for the grand march. " called Bill. While the Long Pants Brigade and their friends were waiting for the music to start, a bob-white ' s whistle floated into the room, hut no one on the inside gave it a thought. Silently twelve well greased windows slid upward. As the music began a bob-white ' s whistle rang out a second time. Twelve hoys then emptied the contents of their Boxes into the room. With a loud squeal at least a dozen large rats fell to the floor from each window. Shriek followed shriek.- Every chair held a screaming young woman, and it filled the Amateurs with delight to see a couple of young men keeping their feet out of danger in the same way. " A rat ' s inn up Pill ' s leg. " panted Pea-eye. Suddenly another whistle warned the hoys and the bags came into play. From each, two cats were released and dumped into the hall. If there had been noise before, it was silence to what followed. Twelve boys were to meet in Mrs. Perkins ' back yard but only eleven were there. " I ' ll bet I know, " said Pea-eye. They went around to the rear of the hall and there sat Tubby with an ice cream freezer between hi-- legs and a large piece of cake in his hands. All of the Amateurs helped themselves and went home.
