  De D IC ft TO R Y OR the Friendship and Esteem with which we regard our Instructor in History George L. Letts The Class of 1912 respectfully Dedicate this volume of The SpectatorSENIOR’S SOLILOQUY The sun is setting, the day is closed— The Senior, gazing through dusty mist. Approaches his goal, at this twilight time, ’Neath skys of gold and amethyst. Commencement time! How memory calls Across the haunted atmosphere, Bidding the Senior pause for a while And think of his verdant Freshman year. The Freshman year is the Summer time Of all his care free High School days, ’Tis a season of sunshine, laughter and mirth, And filled with merriest roundelays. Then Autumn comes with the Sophomore year, That season of fast maturing sun. Fie thinks of the harvest—what will it be? Why, the race is now half run ! The Junior year is the wintertime. How dim grows the light and gray the sky, But friends hold true, though the way is rough That through this snowy valley lies. And now the Spring and Senior year— What wonders the river of time has wrought! The Senior is borne on the sea of life, To struggle for victory in battles fought. Oh, Alma Mater, wise and strong. Thy praises long and loud we’ll sing, And the choicest fruits of our success We cheerfully now to thy altar bring. The cord is broken—the course is run— But where’er our future homes may be, Oh, A. H. S. with your happy times, Our hearts and hopes are all with thee. —Marjorie Burkhart.PERSIAN PROVERBS Doing well depends upon doing completely. He that will eat the kernel, must crack the nut. A person with a had name is already half-hanged. Live with wolves and you will soon learn to howl. The sickle rusts in the hand that waits the harvest. The best throw with the dice is to throw them away. Never leave a river before you, nor your baggage behind. Since we cannot get what we like, let us like what we get. By bravely enduring an evil which cannot be avoided, it is overcome. One pound of learning requires ten pounds of common sense to apply it. Thinking well, is wise; planning well, wiser; doing well, wisest and best of all. Do little things now; so shall big things come to thee by and by, asking to be done.HP r e p ft c e Departed suns their trails of splendor drew Morass departed summers. U hispers came From voices, long ago resolved again Into primeval silence, and we twain, Ghosts of our present self, yet still the same, Ms in a spectral mirror wandered there, —Bayard Taylor, A man with a good memory is master of his past life. He can live it all over again, leaving out the commonplace and sordid incidents, and seeing only the happy and decisive moments in his career. It is as a prop to perpetuate such memories that the Spectator is issued. And the Spectator has grown to be an institution, a perpetual one—we sincerely hope, for we know it to be an excellent idea. The Class of Nineteen Hundred Twelve humbly offers this volume as their contribution to the ever increasing series. We also take occasion to give thanks to our friends, who have aided us so much in preparing this book; to our printers, whose assistance was invaluable, and to the merchants who advertise herein, for without their financial aid so neat a volume would have been impossible.

H. Vreeland, President Metropolitan Railway of New York.) There are no elevators in the house of success. No man can stand on top because he is put there. A man can be too confiding in others, but never too confiding in himself. Clothes don’t make the man, but clothes have got many a man a good job. Many a hero of the world sees a “no-account” every time he looks in the mirror. . A bad man with good manners often outdoes the good man with bad manners. _ A college education is a good thing, but many a graduate finds himselt overtrained. The man who talks business at home is in danger of getting well-meant but dangerous advice. If you have twenty-five dollars, and want a job, it is better to spend twenty dollars for clothes, four dollars for shoes, and the rest for a shave, a hair-cut and a clean collar, and walk to the place, than go with the money in the pockets of a dingy suit.L. T. PLATT, Superintendent. J. H. WELDY, Principal. Science.LILLIAN E. EVANS, English. GEORGE LETTS, History.J. RAYMOND GODLOVE, Mathematics. MYRTLE CREAMER Latin.MRS. L. W. FAIRFIELD, Drawing.(ouRse of Study The course of study for the Angola High School is planned in accordance with the requirements for commissioned High Schools of Indiana as approved by an act of the General Assembly, March 9, 1907. In addition to these requirements, Manual Training and Parliamentary Law are taught. Whenever a student wins thirty-two credits in this course, he or she becomes eligible to graduation from the Angola High School. Of these thirty-two credits, necessary to graduation, eighteen are required and fourteen are elective. A credit means satisfactory work in one subject recited five periods per week for one semester. The amount of work given is outlined below. ENGLISH Language is fundamentally the basis of all education. Without a fair knowledge of our mother tongue, it is impossible for any person to become a clear thinker or to make himself understood. Hence the work in English is emphasized in the High School course. Four years are offered, three years of which are required for graduation. For those who take a minimum of the foreign language requirement, four years of English arc necessary to graduate. The work in English consists of the study of composition and rhetoric and the reading of English classics together with the history of American literature in the third year and of English literature in the fourth year. In addition to the critical study of classics in class, a number of books are required for home reading, upon which the pupils are examined. Memorizing choice selections and class debates are features of the English course. Beyond the regular work in English, the Senior class during the last semester of this year has pursued the study of technical English Grammar. HISTORY For the enrichment of the student’s life and the development of his moral nature, no better subject is found than History. Besides giving one a picture of the progress of the human race. History affords the best basis for development of the reasoning powers. A further reason why it claims a prominent place in the school program, is the basis it furnishes for the solution of governmental problems with which the student must come in contact. In the Angola High School four years of History are offered, three years of which are requiied for graduation. This work consists of one year in Greek and Roman History, one year in Modern, one-half vear of United States History and onc-half year of Civics. The work is given in the order just indicated. In addition to the work specified, a year’s work in English History is offered as an elective.SCIENCE In order to be a successful person, one must be able to cope with his physical environment. A knowledge of various phases of nature is essential to give man this ability. To wait until one has reached the High School to begin his or her study of natural phenomena, is putting the work too late in the student’s life. Hence nature work is given in the grades. On the other hand, to stop science study with the grades, is giving the child too meager knowledge of his surroundings. The course of science in this school is intended to broaden the child’s view and to make his environment his servant. Four yeafs of Science are offered of which two years are required. The science offered is one year each of Physiography, Botany. Physics and Chemistry. Of these either Physiography or Botany fills one year’s requirement and Physics or Chemistry makes out the second year’s work. The majority of students elect Botany or Chemistry. MATHEMATICS Probably the only real test of formal logic that the majority of people get is from the study of Mathematics. While there are some other branches of study that furnish more wholesome means for the development of the reasoning powers in general, there is no High School subject which demands such exactitude and logical arrangement of statements to reach conclusions as Mathematics. Again, by its use of symbolism, Mathematics lays the foundation for a higher plane of thinking. Whenever the mind is able to handle symbols with ease, then it is that it can do logical thinking. And logical thinking is only common sense organized. To fill these requirements, the course offers three and one-half years of Mathematics. One and one-half years are given to each of Algebra and Geometry. One-half year is given to Commercial Arithmetic. LANGUAGE In this age of demands for practical results we tend to measure everything by a commercial standard. We ask wdtat it will yield in dollars and cents. Now, material results are not always the most practical, for they may be too transitory. On the other hand, therefore, permanent qualities of mind and character must be considered. For this reason Foreign Languages are given a prominent place in the course of study. The foreign languages, when seriously considered, give discipline of mind and thought, power of expression, information, outlook, the sense of the noble and beautiful in literature. Two languages—Latin and German—are offered in the Angola High School. Pupils on entering have the option of either language, which must be pursued three years for graduation. The first year’s work in Latin consists of a study of forms and syntax; in the second year, Caesar’s commentaries are studied; the third is spent in Cicero’s orations. In the second and third years, composition is given one lesson each week. A fourth year in the study of Virgil’s Aeneid from the literary point of view, is offered. The first year of German is devoted to the study of declensions and conjugations together with the reading of easy prose. In the second year,Thomas’ Practical German Grammar is made the basis of the work. In this year such classics as Storm’s Immensee are read. There is no third year class this year, hut a course is outlined in which the language is studied from th ---1— __.xtUnju AHIJMING Although practically a new subject in public school work, Manual Training has. both from psychological and commercial reasons, become a perma-ment part of the course of study. It makes a strong appeal to boys because of its mechanical and practical nature. From a psychological standpoint it is valued because it furnishes an opportunity for the training of the hand. Again, the muscles are the great clarifiers of thought. We have heretofore offered training for heart and head but neglected the hand. The training of the three is the modern educational ideal. Three years’ work is outlined : two being given in the seventh and eighth grades and one year in the High School. In the grades sewing is taught to the girls. The work is elective in the High School. It consists of wood work of various sorts as outlined by the Beardsley system of Manual Training. MUSIC Since the ideals of education have risen to the height that calls for the development of the whole individual, any course of study that ignores or neglects the emotional life of the child, is seriously defective. No one can deny that the emotions lo form a large factor in the conduct of men; and that unless the emotions are properly directed they become a dangerous force in society. It is only when emotions are centralized into pure sentiments that they become positive forces for good. Music has that power of centralization of emotions about pure sentiments, for which reason it naturally becomes a fundamental part of a course of study. In the High School the work in music is fitted to the different degrees of advancement of the students. For those who have never pursued a systematic study of music in the grades, an elementary course comprised of the rudiments is planned. In addition two other courses are given, one in fuda-mentals, the other in chorus work. Admission to the chorus work presupposes ability to read music readily. DRAWING Drawing comes into courses of study for various reasons. Among these two reasons justify its presence in a public school course. It is a means of expression that has been employed from time out of mind; and it is a valuable aid in the cultivation of the aesthetic sense in man and woman. At no time do these factors develop so rapidly as in the High School period of childhood. It is the time when the child is grasping for every form and means of expressing itself; it is also the time when the beautiful "air castles" are built and the dreams of the future glory assert themselves. Drawing affords an opportunity to put these in tangible forms. While it is not the aim of the course in Drawing in this High School tomake artists, yet it is one intention of this department to give the pupil a knowledge of the means by which an artist portrays his meaning in pencil and color. The paramount object is to teach the student to see and to express what he sees. The course includes lettering, perspective and landscape work. The work is required in the first year and is elective in the other years. The boys for the most part elect lettering and perspective drawing, while the girls take up the other lines.NIORSSenior OUaaa Officers President ............................David Palfreyman Vice-President ...........................

Kunkle January 7, 1895 Helen is one of the three members of our class who started together in the first grade twelve years ago under Miss Parish. She is one of the youngest and smallest members of our class, but this does not prevent her being the star basket ball forward of the girls’ team. Helen’s specialty is dancing. and she is a delightful entertainer. David Palfreyman April 19, 1894 We elected David president of our class during our Junior year, and so well did he perform his duties that lie was reelected again at the beginning of the Senior year. He is one of our best students and a shrewd business man. Hazel Avery February 23, 1894 Hazel lives just far enough from town to be a country maiden. She walkes in every morning and back evenings. She will become a teacher next year, and, judging from her school work among us, she will be successful. The class will always remember the class party Hazel gave at her home. Glenn Zimmerman August 15, 1893 Glenn joined our class in the Freshman year, driving back and forth mornings and evenings from his home to town. Glenn is noted for his quietness and for the fact that city girls have no attractions for him. His attentions seem to be divided between school teaching and farming.Ruth Woodring June 2, 1894 Ruth is a good student and a culinary genius. She is a hard worker and never flunks. Next year she expects to teach school. Ruth’s specialty is hard study. Frank Deller November 8, 1893 Frank is the original funny man of the class. The one thing that worries him is deportment; but he dropped that the last semester, so he is again happy- We think that Frank will farm, but lie may surprise us and run for Congress. Irma Sniff June 25, 1894 Irma has been with us but a short time, but in that time we have found that nothing is too hard for her to attempt. We have never found her when she did not have time, or the lesson was too long. Irma is an excellent entertainer, which she demonstrated at the party she gave for the Seniors. French Parsell February 8, 1894 “Rill’' seems to have always lived in Angola, but we think he will soon be too important for so small a town. Bill’s special delight is to get into scrapes, and to keep the faculty working. His social life was neglected until the latter part of his Senior year when he happened to see Nora. When not in school. Bill is either duck hunting or writing up back excuses.Ruth Parsell December 18, 1892 Ruth started with us in the fifth grade and with the exception of the seventh grade she has kept with us through thick and thin. Ruth is an excellent entertainer, a fine artist and a jolly companion. As a member of the Spectator staff she has been invaluable in perseverance when the outlook was doubtful. Burl Hall February 10, 1893 Burl, or as he is sometimes called, "James,” was reared on a farm in Steuben county. He entered H. S. with our class and since then has spent one or two terms in Tri-State studying French and Dutch. He thinks some of mixing these two languages and forming a new one. We think he is capable of doing this for he is one of our best language students. Edith Honess December 18, 1892 Edith is one of the few members of our class who live in the country and stay in town to attend High School. The times when she does not have her lessons are so few and far between that we have decided to place her on the anti-flunkers list. Charles Kidney December t8, 1892 Charles was born in Chicago, attended public school in Western Illinois and then moved to Northern Indiana to join the class of ’12. During his varied career. Charles has been a boot-black, a newsboy, a book-agent and a farmer. He soon found, however. that there was no money in these occupations, so he started to High School. “As smooth as the business side of a banana peeling.”Helen VanCleave December 18, 1893 Helen is one of the large number of big-hearted girls who are members of our class. She delights in parties, is a good basket ball player, and excellent student and believes most heartily in good humor. “Laugh, it’s good for your liver.” Wade B. Walsh March 20, 1894 Wade looks down upon every one in High School, unless it be some of the smallest Freshmen whom he cannot see at all. He is one of our best athletes. He has made some good records in basket ball and jumping. Wade was subscription manager for the Spectator. Lately he seems rather Morse. Zema Ettinger December 20, 1893 Zema came to Angola last year from Illinois to finish her last two years in High School with the class of ’12. She is the quiet worker of the class who never “flunks.” Such a thirst for knowledge has she that she even studies during the morning ten minutes’ “talking” period. Earl Rinehart November 12, 1892 Earl lives on a farm about five miles east of town and drives to school every day. He is a most industrious student and never flunks just for fun. He expects to go on a farm next year, and if he does as well there as in his school work, success awaits him.Ellen Dygert September 7, 1892 Ellen received her early training in the Fremont schools before entering our H. S. She is the best guard of the Girls’ Basket Ball team and a member of the S. I. C. club. Under this excuse she has been known to chaperon “Bill” to a few parties, but of course we must not forget Hershcy. Don Culver September 9, 1894 Don was born a Buckeye but became too noisy and was driven across the line into Indiana . He is known far and wide as a basket ball tosser and. where he is not known personally, his pompadour has been heard of. He also stars in his use of the English language. “I don't know nothin’ about that.” Frances Robertson March 15, 1892 Frances has the distinction of having traveled more than any other member of the Senior Class. She has attended school in several western states and also in Pleasant Lake, but we can't say whether because of that or in spite of it, she is one of our best students. Corneal Bratton November 17, 1894 Corneal is our hustling little business man. His ability in this line can not be doubted when we remember that he managed the Athletic Association through a successful financial year, and that he was one of the business managers of the Spectator. Corneal is also one of our best athletes. He is our highest pole vaulter, and a good tennis and basket ball player.Marjorie Burkhart August I, 1894 The girl of affairs, Marjorie is our authority whenever any social event is being planned; and her opinion is always sought before anything is done. Marjorie’s special-tv is music, which she will continue after graduating, and her long suit heart-breaking, which she will also probably continue elsewhere. Lloyd Parr September 1, 1893 Llovd joined our class last year. He came from a farm in LaGrange county but he has recovered from all the effect of farm life. Parr is our star base ball player. His pet hobby is driving about the country in his Ford. Jessie Evans January 5, 1893 Jessie, our quiet little Welsh girl, hails from Columbia, Wisconsin. She joined our class at the first of the Junior year. She is noted for her quietness and for the fact that she is a niece of our English teacher. Her constancy of purpose is strikingly shown by the fact "that she has driven from her country home every day this winter and seldom missed a class.Ina Story June 22, 1893 It is not such a hard matter to get excellent grades during the Freshman and Sophomore years, but most grade cards show a marked decline the last two years of H. S. work. Ina, however, by her diligent study has shown us that this decline is wholly unnecessary. Imo Smith August 25. 1892 There are Smiths and Smiths, but only one Imo Smith, member of the Senior Class of ’12, athlete, actor, and artist, as his drawings in the Spectator will show. Besides, Imo is an all around good fellow. Muriel Spears May 4. 1894 Muriel joined our class during our Sophomore year. Before coming to Angola she lived near Salem. Muriel is an accomplished pianist and a good companion as Sam will readily testify. She intends to teach next year and we are certain that success awaits her. Herman C. Kohl February 2. 1894 Born and raised on a farm near Metz, Herman will never forget his first day in H. S., when he joined us as one of the greenest freshmen. He plays basket ball for exercise, likes Physics and Chemistry and tampers with electricity and wireless. He will teach next year and later take some professional college course. “Maybe you think I am out for some fun, But I’m. not—I’m a minister’s son.”ELEGY WRITTEN IN A CITY SCHOOL HOUSE The school bell rings the dawn of busy day, The lagging feet drag slowly o’er the grass, The teacher schoolward plods his weary way, And there instructs the weary lad and lass. They know the sun shines brightly overhead, Although they’re caged within the schoolroom dark; They know there’s many a purple violet bed, And many a song sung now by the gladsome lark. Yet they must ever in the some old path Plod through the daily tasks and toils of life; And e’er unmindful of the teacher’s wrath, Defend themselves against the bitter strife. For them no more the bluebirds seem to call, They cannot heed the summons loud and gay, They only dare to walk the schoolroom halls, And look at the smaller children ’cross the way. Yet time may show their labor was well spent, And they’ll be glad they did not stay away When teachers’ weary time and toil did lend, That they might better rule the world some day. —Hazel M.

They not only create an interest and enthusiastic spirit in the school, but they develop character, physique and health. They train the student to be accurate, attentive and quick in his actions, and furnish an incentive to work. Clean athletics are an uplifting element in a school The attendance at our games this year of the public in general and also of the school students show that more interest is being taken in this work.

Helen Kunkle Treasurer............................... David Palfreyman Faculty Manager.......................J. Raymond Godlove Student Manager............................Corneal Bratton Early in October a meeting of the Athletic Association was called by the president for the election of officers for the ensuing year. The College gymnasium was rented and active work begun in the different branches of athletics. Owing to the high gymnasium rental and other expenses, the financial struggle has been extremely strenuous; but by advertising the games cleverly and by lots of “push,” we have managed to keep our receipts and expenditures even. We take this occasion to thank our patrons for their support, and the proprietors of moving picture theatres for the benefits which they have given for us. Basket Ball The basket ball squads were called out early this year, as a foot ball team to represent the High School was not organized. The teams first began practicing on the grounds back of the school building and here they worked into fairly good condition. Hard practice, however, was not started until we entered the College gymnasium early in November. The schedule for practicing was then arranged and basket ball started in earnest. Coach Godlove faithfully directed the teams every night, and rapid progress was made. The boys’ team developed into the fastest team ever put out by the A. H. S., and won most of their games. They outclassed their opponents and have to their credit points amounting to 230, while the opponents made only 118 points. The girls’ team was better this year than for the past few years, and played their opponents vigorously in every game. Although two games out of three were lost by close margins, the girls showed some excellent playing.Mr. Godlove is our coach and faculty manager. He has spent a great deal of time and work upon our team. His faithful coaching has shown in the teams he has turned out this year and we feel that a great deal oi credit is due him for the records they have made. We heartily thank him for the many things which he has done for us in athletics. “Cully” can stop anything from a Valley Line train to a basket ball player. He plays like a cyclone and is an extraordinary, accurate basket thrower. He is the star in the team and outplays every man he goes against. His pig-bristle pompadour can always be seen in the thick of the scrimmage defending the honors of the A. H. S. He can play any position, but has been in the game as forward this year. He has played two years on the team. “Colonel” is known as the “Slippery Senior.” His size does not allow his guard to have an accurate knowledge of his exact location at a critical moment. Between halves, he attends to the duties of manager. No one sees him doing his work; the effect is the only thing evident. It is common at a game to hear some one ask, “Who threw that basket?” and to hear the reply, “the Colonel.” He has been on the squad two years.“Smit” is a splendid mixer, both on the basket ball floor and among the fair co-eds. He is a versatile being, changing from a rough-neck basket ball player to a gentle companion in the parlor. He plays a great game at center with the team and can always be relied upon for breaking up the team work of the opponents. He has played on the squad two years. “Bill" can always be relied upon for his hard work and efficiency at guarding. There is no telling what he could do if the girls would only let him alone. If he plays next year the Coach has decided to put a blind bridle on him. He is very modest, but can usually talk his opponent out of making a basket. This is his second year on the squad. "Soap" is very tall and his natural position is center. He is accurate in shooting goals and is of great assistance in working signals. He was a great point winner on the team last year and could usually be depended upon to hold down his opponent. He has played but three games with the team this year.“Kohly" takes everything cool and easy but can guard with the next one. He is as. graceful in the gymnasium as on the ball room floor, attracting attention wherever he goes. He preaches between the halves as well as on Sunday. His accurate passing and good team work has made him a player who can be depended upon. He has been with the squad two years. “Shavens” is our famous Junior basket ball player, athlete and fisherman. He is an all around player, a guard, forward or center. He is captain of the team, and has directed it at center most of the year. We will venture to predict that he will be a leading spirit in athletics next year. He has been on the team two years. “Red" is another Junior. This is his first year in the game and he has developed into a good player. He is quick, steady and a good basket thrower. His position is forward, and we predict he will be a star on the team next year.THE GAMES Pioneer vs. Angola, at Angola. The season opened with a sweeping victory for the yellow and blue. With a team composed of experienced players, each individual a star and each star out for honors, the A. H. S. boys took the wind from the sails of the Buckeye aggregation and sent them floating back home with the short end of a 25-20 score. This game won for the boys a warm place in the hearts of the basket ball fans and assured them of well deserved support. Albion vs. Angola, at Angola. Following close upon the victory over Pioneer, came the second laurel for our boys. '1'his time team work, speed and sensational basket shooting, easily won from the less experienced five from Albion, who were played off their feet and who failed to score a single basket from the field. Wolf Lave vs. Angola, at Wolf Lake. The first trip abroad resulted in a defeat, which was due to the fact that the lack of playing space prevented team and signal work. Though outclassed in all branches of the game, the farmer lads managed to slip the victory into the lake a trifle deeper than the A. H. S. boys could wade, and so won by the close score of 21-16. Pioneer vs. Angola at Pioneer. With a shattered team but a good quality of confidence, the return game with Pioneer was played before an immense crowd at Pioneer. By many this was considered the fastest game of the season and would have resulted in a victory had not an accident befallen one of our clever players who was compelled to leave the game. When time was called the score stood 17-17, but Pioneer scored the next two points and defeated our boys by a close margin, 19-17. Coldwater vs. Angola, at Coldwater. Outclassed and disabled by the loss of men. the gold and the blue went down before the ferocious onslaught of the Coldwater basket ball tossers. The A. H. S. boys had little chance against the giants and former foot ball players, and the game went to the latter to the tune of 42-17. Churubusco vs. Angola, at Churubusco. This game, although a defeat by the score of 13-12, was not a disgrace to our team. Little class was shown by their opponents and the game was an uninteresting one. Reading vs. Angola, at Reading. In a slow and loosely played game, the A. H. S. boys won their third victory by a score of 25-13. The players were in good form and no fear as to the outcome of the game was necessary. Reading vs. Angola, at Angola. With a grand display of team work, our team overwhelmed the Reading tossers and sent them home in deep mourning. The visitors had no chance at any time and failed to score but one field goal. When the game ended the score board proclaimed the gold and blue victors in their last chance for honors.Schedule, 1911-1912 Time Winning Team Losing Team Place Score Nov. 10. ..... .Angola.....

In the first game the success of our girls proved them to be fast and experienced players. Although the College girls were much heavier and had had more practice, the team work and speed of our girls made them victors by a score of 15 to 13. T. S. C. vs. A. H. S.—2nd Game The second game proved a defeat for our girls, although they fought hard for the game. The College girls, by some lucky basket shooting from the field and also on foul throws, succeeded in placing themselves in the lead. The score had been very even throughout the game until toward the end when the collegians pulled ahead and our girls were unable to catch up. The score was 15 to 16. T. S. C. vs. A. H. S.—3rd Game This game created a great deal of interest as it was the final game of the series, and each team had one game to its credit. It was exciting from start to finish and the score was even until the very end of the game. But the weight of the College girls finally told, and although our girls tried hard to get the points, toward the last, they were unable to succeed. The Collegians became victors by a score of y to 16.SENIOR BASKET-BALL TEAM Culver—F Parsell—G Walsh—C Smith—C Bratton—F Kohl—G GAMES Co. B. vs. Seniors—at Armory After two weeks of idleness, the Senior team furnished amusement for the Co. B. basket-ball players. The slippery floor caused the Senior boys to move slowly, and thus they were beaten by the close score of 25 to 30. Co. B. vs. Seniors—at College Gymnasium The boys were more sure on their own floor when they met the soldiers for the second time. After two stiff encounters comprising the first and second halves, the Class of 1912 emerged with honorable wounds and an overwhelming victory. Although the U. S. guard made many grand charges, they were forced to submit to an unconditional surrender to the Seniors and a score of 24 to 19.SeNIOR CLftSS PLftY The Senior Class play, “The Private Secretary,” was given by the following cast of characters at Croxton Opera House, May 29, 1912.

This work is the management of the Lecture Course for the coming year. We have selected six very attractive numbers from the Redpath Lyceum Bureau—numbers we are sure will interest the people, such as the well known humorist, Strickland W, Gillilan. 1 wo other well known lecturers are Montavillc Flowers and Thomas Brooks Fletcher. Montaville Flowers gives a repertoire of Life Lectures with illustrative acting, such as the Drama of Love and Religion, based upon The Little Minister. Thomas Brooks Fletcher’s lectures deal with live topics and are filled with apt and forceful illustrations which drive home to the minds of his hearers great truths in a sometimes startling, but always in an effective manner. The people of Angola, as we well know, demand high class music. Knowing this, we have arranged to bring to Angola the Kellogg-Haines Singing Party, that will present selections from the best known grand operas. Their costumes for each number on the program will be very attractive and elaborate. The claim has been made that, while male quartets by long practice ofen reach a very high standard of perfection, no other mixed quartetin America can approach the Kellogg-Haines Singing Party in individuality and perfect blending of voices, which comprises ideal quartet work. In addition to the mixed quartet, three members of the company comprise a male trio of equal merit. The Chicago (ilee Club comes to us well recommended and as a male quartet remains unsurpassed. For a final number we were especially fortunate in engaging Rogers and Grilley, entertainers. Mr. Rogers is especially good with the harp, and no man on the Bureau can better hold an audience than Mr. Grilley with his original selections and impersonations and jests. Mr. Rogers was harpist for the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, under Bernard Listerman, and was later solo harpist to the Boston Festival Orchestra, and was closely associated with such artists as Melba and Schumann-Heink. The Class, or individuals of the Class, will attend to all the business matters. The president will appoint committees to look after the advertising and sale of tickets. The lecturers and other numbers of our program will be introduced to the audience by members of the Class. In selecting this high class talent, the Senior Class of 1913 has a large undertaking upon its hands. But we have determined to bring the course up to its former standing that our fathers and mothers tell about. And it is only bv the support of the people of Angola and vicinity that the Class can re-establish this standard. Every citizen of Angola should not only feel it his duty, but a rare treat to support this Lecture Course. Commencement Week Program Class Day ..................................Friday.

Vincent Orr) SALUTATORY the Class of Nineteen Twelve, bid you welcome. We are pleased IvxC to see our school directors, who have helped us in our school life by giving us the very best teachers. It gives us pleasure to welcome our teachers. They have helped us over both the rough and the smooth places and are here to help us on this, our last day of school, by their presence. Schoolmates, we welcome you. and may your school life mean all to you and more than our happy school days have been to us. We are indeed grateful for the presence of our parents, who have sympathized with us in our school problems and have rejoiced with us in our victories. In our four years of High School work, we have found that the work has not all been drudgery and that our time has not been wasted. Instead, we have found that we have taken a step toward the preparation for our life's work and that we have very profitably spent our time. Among the many branches of study in the High School curriculum, are two very important subjects: the study of Languages and the study of Literature. To me these subjects have been both beneficial and interesting. I have found that it has rested me to read over my English lesson of Bryant’s, Longfellow’s, Wordsworth’s, or Scott’s poems after I have been studying Geometry or Physics. It has been with a desire to know whether Caesar was victorious or whether Aeneas would ever reach Italy, that I have begun the study of my Latin lesson. To the minds of those who have never studied either of these branches, the question often occurs, “Does it pay?” We feel that we can honestly answer that question in the affirmative. You may wonder how the study of a dead language, as Latin is called, can be of any benefit or enjoyment. First, Latin is of inestimable value in cultivating the habits of accuracy of expression and thought. A clear and effective interpretation of English literature requires an extensive use of Latin words. A good translation of Latin requires an extensive vocabulary. When we first began to read Caesar, and found that for every Latin word there were from one to one hundred meanings in English, we felt that our vocabularies are indeed small. If we would all stop and think howmany of the words we use every day are derived from the Latin language, we would feel that the language is not dead but living in another form. Again we have found that we enjoyed Roman History a great deal more after we have read Caesar's Gallic Wars and Cicero’s Orations. In much •of the best literature, we find references to Greek and Roman mythological •characters. In the study of Virgil's Aeneid, we became familiar with these -characters and their significance. The study of Latin is what you make it. You can make it a drudgery or you can make it a pleasure. English, the most important erf all the subjects in the High School curriculum. has trained us for every department of life, be it the business, soda •or home life. Our business world of today requires infinitely more of its employees than the business world of fifty years ago required. The English courses Igiven in our High Schools of today prepare the boys and girls for the business world, because they are taught how to use the English language correctly. It is sometimes thought that the English taught in the High School is for school hours only—to be forgotten when we leave the school door and never used until we come back to school again. But this is not true. The "business men require that their employes, especially those in the office of the employer, should be able to use the English language correctly. They must know the best forms of business letters, how to write a letter or draw a form from suggestions instead of verbatim dictation. In fact they are their employer’s machine that means success to him. If our hoys and girls •expect to enter this business life, they receive tl eir fornda4ion in that High School English class. Not only the business world, but the social world demands training in English. To converse with our friends, we must not only have the English lantuace at our command, but we must he acquainted with the best authors and their productions. During our High School course, the best literature has been placed at our disposal. We have read and studied the best. We have learned to appreciate our great American and English writers. We have found that by reading the best literature we have more noble thoughts. There is a great problem facing us today and the school must help to solve this problem. What is man to do when he is free from physical labor? Although a person may rest from physical labor, his mind is not at rest. We all know the effect of an idle brain. Van must have something to think about and to do while his body is resting—something that is different from the usual routine of work. Our schools are placing before the pupils, liteta-ture that they can use in after years. In High School they learn to appreciate the best books when they rest from physical labor their minds are filled with high and noble thoughts, instead of idle and evil plans. We often wonder why our English teachers criticise certain classes of books and offer others as a standard. I believe that the time will come when we can fully answer our own questions, and we will thank our teachers for what they have done for us. It is our sincere desire that the other classes as they go through HighSchool from year to year may learn the true value of the study of Languages, rind Literature. Again we thank you all for the help you have given our class by your interest in the past, and your presence here. In the name of the Class of Nineteen Twelve, 1 again bid you one and all a hearty welcome. NK morning, after the harvest moon had waned, in the year of our Lord 1908, the classes of ’09, ’10 and ’n came to the Temple of learning and made a discovery. It was the class of 1912. And what a class was there! Never before had Steuben County been so fruitful; never had Angola sent out such an array of sons and daughters. Unmistakable signs of future greatness lurked in our every word and deed altho’ we probably-seemed children to the casual observer. being told on the first day that we were either to survive or perish in the terrible struggle for knowledge, we rushed into the great field of learn-ing. With palpitating hearts we crammed Freshman Algebra and Bergen’s Botany, sometimes forgetting our fright long enough to enjoy long Botany trips with Ur. Goodale. In brave defiance of f aculty disapproval and upperclassman scorn, we organized. This shadowy period in our lives was spent in a ccnsta- t state of studious application to lessons, care of school property ard conduct, combined with a deadly fear for our very lives. Time brought fair results and bv spring we had somewhat overcome our violent agitation in the presence of the f aculty, and all but Marjorie had become reconciled to living without pencil boxes. How changed the scene at the beginning of the next year. With bound-less confidence we leisurely w-ended our way to school and. upon looking about, perceived great swarms of freshmen in picturesque groups. Then it struck us that we were Sophomores, which caused 11s great flights of enthusiasm and outbursts of joy. This year we confirmed the supposition that Sophomores are above all else frivolous by becoming very proficient in the avoidance of every duty. The third year wras one marked by great diligence and desire for knowledge. Under Miss Evans’ guidance we gained profound understanding of English and acquired dignity as well. We became very proficient in the latter but we could so far forget it as to paint the “pole” black and gold. The Golden age of our lives began Sept. 1911, when we assumed the dignity of Seniors. After emerging from the shadow caused by the title of “Under-Classmen,” we learned to live on merrily under the piercing gaze of Prof. Platt. Now, having completed our tasks successfully, we are ready to graduate and enjoy a glorious commencement as the fruits of our labors. Considering what we have accomplished, we may predict that next year there will be many of us pursuing in our larger fields the ideals our H. S. days have set for us. In after years when it is asked wrhat class produced actors and actresses that the other classes wished to borrow, men will say, “The Class of ’12;” SENIOR CLASS HISTORYwhat class contained musicians, athletes and orators in profusion, men will say, “’12;” what class had the best B. B. team that any one class had produced, ‘‘'12:” what class produced the star of the girls’ team, “’12;" what class fixed the standard for all other classes and set the way that Seniors should go, the answer will come echoing back in thunderous accents— 'flic Class of Nineteen Hundred Twelve. —Helen VanCleave. SENIOR CLASS PROPHLC Denver Colo., May 24. 1930. MISS RUTH PARSELL, Palazzo, Vecchio, Florence, Italy. Dear Ruth : We were very glad to get your letter and blame ourselves severely for losing track of you in the years which have passed since our scnool davs. Surely you are anxious to hear about our old classmates. We base kept in touch with most of them and have made special inquiry for the others. Last night at luncheon we overheard the people at the next table talking about a rousing revival which was being held at the Dunkard church oiuy a block from the hotel. Since it was so near, we decided we would run over. How surprised we were to hear the voice of D. H. Palfreyman speaking words of comfort and cheer, while ade B. alsh, the singer, thrilled the entire audience with his melodious voice. Yesterdav when we were down in the city we saw a large crowd of people coming from a large building while others were working their way in. When we inquired as to what sort of a meeting it was we were told that Irma Sniff had just finished a Prohibition speech and that Jessie Evans would soon begin her Socialist speech. Roth of the girls are candidates for congress. Do you ever hear from Helen Kunkle? We received a letter from her the day before yesterday and she is living on a ranch in Texas. She married some fellow who was going to Tri-State studying to be a minister. She didn’t say whether he was preaching or not. She told 11s that Helen VanClcave was a matron in an orphans’ home in Nebraska. We never conceived of her doing such a thing. She also informed 11s that Don Culver was quite a noted lawyer and fisherman in Angola. Last month we were in New York City and listened to a concert by the Thomas Orchestra. You perhaps know that since the death of Mr. Stock, Imo Smith has been the leader of the orchestra. I mo said that he was going to Germany the latter part of the month. He has made several trips abroad. The big base ball game of the season was on in Philadelphia, so we went down to attend it. The Cubs played against the Philadelphia league. It was a rousing game. The Cubs held them down one to nothing, but were defeated on account of poor support in the outfield. Glenn Zimmerman pitched for the Cubs. We drove from Philadelphia to Washington. D. C., in an auto. AboutTour miles from Washington we saw a beautiful farm. Everything was so neat and there was such an abundance of flowers that we drove into the yard, and there we found Earl Rinehart, the owner of that beautiful place. We had quite a visit and he told us that Hazel Avery was the private secretary for President G. L. Letts; that Lloyd Parr is chauffer for Lillian Evans, president of Princess University. She has just appointed Frank Deller to the chair of Sociology and Ethics. While we were in Washington, we could not resist calling on Hazel. She said that she liked her work very much. As the conversation drifted on we fell to talking about the various members of the class of ’twelve. Just then President Letts came in. He looked perfectly natural, only his hair was a little gray. He had that same old smile. He told us that Herman Kohl was pastor of the German Reformed Church in Cincinnati. On returning to the hotel in Philadelphia, an evening paper was handed to us in which it was announced that French Parsed was to lecture that evening on “The Divisions of the Chinese Brain.” At eight o’clock we were seated in the lecture room. Soon French appeared amidst the applause of thousands of people who came to listen to the most able lecturer of the day. After the lecture we invited French to dine with us. He told us of his travels and his trip to the Philippines where he met Ellen Dygert who is teaching Elocution in Manila. He also mentioned his trip to Egypt where he met Tna Storey, now famous for her work in deciphering old inscriptions on Egyptian tablets. We left Philadelphia on the morning train for the West. As we stepped from the train at Angola, the first person we saw was Zema Ettinger, who was going to Washington, D. C., where she was to be private tutor for Pres. Letts’ children. Muriel Spears, who is teaching music at Tri-State, was also at the depot. The following evening we were invited to a reception and met Mr. and Mrs. Weldy and our old classmate, Marjorie Burkhart,, who is a nurse in the Angola City Hospital. We talked of our old classmates, and she said that Charles Kidney was butler for the Alogna which was organized the last year of school. After spending a few days at home, we continued our trip to the West. When we changed cars at Chicago for St. Louis, we chanced to buy a copy of the Scientific World, and looking it through we saw an article written by Prof. B. G. Hall, of the Phdippines. We were entertained in St. Louis by Corneal Bratton, wrho is now advertising manager for the St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Corneal’s first experience in this work, as you remember, was obtained in connection with the A. H. S. Spectator of 1912. The bell just rang and a letter was deposited upon our desk. Later—On reading the letter, we found that Edith Honess Churchill and her husband, Dr. Churchill, were just preparing to leave their home in London by an areoplane and expect to arrive in Denver this evening. We have decided to meet them and dine at the Louis and Clark cafe. Address 11s at the Orient Hotel, at Pecos, Texas.

We, the undersigned, do nominate and appoint J. Raymond Godlove executor of this, our last will and testament, and desire that he be allowed by the court in which this will is probated to perform his duties as executor without being required to give bond. In witness whereof, we have subscribed our names and caused our seal to be affixed this the 24th day of May, in the year Nineteen Hundred Twelve. FEW years ago, longer for some of us than for others, there came into our hearts a desire to be some one—to gain an education. Thus we entered High School. The call of the world's present opportunities lured many of us away, but the rest plodded on and now we have begun to realize our desire. It may be asked of us, “Of what benefit is your High School training now that you have it?” This is a reasonable question and no class is better able to answer it than a Senior class. In the first place, our High School training has broadened our views of life. A mature person views life very differently from a child. He is able to look back and see how life appeared to him when he was a child. This is true of a High School graduate. After having spent four years in High School, we are able to look at ourselves as we were before we started. Then we accepted everything that was told us without question. Now. as a result of the training we have received in Science, we begin to see why these things are true. By our study of History, we have learned how nations before ours were great and why they fell; how Egypt, Geece and Rome each have added its share to the civilization which we enjoy; we have learned of great heroes and our ideals have been made higher. In our study of English, we have learned the necessity of speaking and writing correctly. Thus we are able to examine the phases of life and choose that one which we want to make ours. If more people had High School training, we would have less evil in the world. The statistics of a state reformatory show that of about four hundred inmates only one was a Fligh School graduate. This shows that a High School education tends to fill the mind with something that is good —CLASS OE NINETEEN HUNDRED TWELVE. VALEDICTORYand to keep out thoughts of a criminal nature. It is well known that the mind is bound to be occupied with something. Therefore, we want to be able to fill our minds with the good of life. A High School education cultivates the habit of study. If this habit is once acquired it never leaves us. It is always a source of pleasure to be able to sit down and to study out for one’s self some question or problem of importance to us at the time. The ability to discriminate between good and evil is the making of life. A person who has this habit firmly fixed can not be anything but noble and true. If this habit of analyzing and discrimination is ever formed it must be formed in High School and its benefits are gathered all through life. The mind is broadened by four years spent in High School. All questions are looked upon in a different light than formerly. We have learned that no one man knows all there is to learn. As one of our instructors once said, “A High School education teaches us that we know nothing, but some people do not know even that.” Thus we are taught that all life is a school and we must learn by experience. Questions are constantly arising which we are called upon to settle for ourselves. Thus we must be able to grasp them. Some one has said that questions are the stimulus of the mind and in High School we begin to gain that stimulus. If we were to forget the facts which we learned in High School, one thing of great importance would still remain—the art of mingling with our fellowmen. All through life we are called upon to meet and converse with people. If we cannot do this intelligently, we have missed one of the great arts. In our various social gatherings and entertainments we have begun to learn this art. To summarize: A High School education broadens the view of life, makes higher ideals, cultivates the study habit, broadens the mind, and helps us to meet our fellowmen. Now, to whom are we indebted for the benefits? First we owe our greatest gratitude to our parents. Some of us well know that if it had not been for their encouragement and ambitions for us, we would not have kept our desire for an education. We owe gratitude to the faculty who have helped us and held up ideals for us to follow. And although we separate, yet shall teacher and .scholar be together in the effort to gain the noblest and best which lies within the possibilities of man. The school board comes in for their share of our kindly thoughts. We were truly grateful for the new furnace this year, and hope it will be but a few years before the Senior class will have a beautiful new school building from which to graduate. Classmates, when I think of the many happy hours which we have spent together, in the class room and in social gatherings, there comes to me a feeling of sadness. I am sure we are all sorry to sever the school relations which have seemed rather strict to us sometimes, but which have always proved to be right. It seems odd that next year other people will be occupying our places. But now the time has come when we should be doing our part in the busy life about us. We are not sorry for this for it isthe way of life. And though we separate, it is but to meet in an older school—the school of experience. Here again we shall be classmates and work out together life’s problems. We ask you to be patient with us and we will try to show you that we are in earnest and will do our best. In behalf of the Class of 1912, I bid you an affectionate farewell. —Ina Storey. Conundrums If cows played ball, would they use a milk pitcher? Could a wagon hold its tongue while the buggy spoke?

The class was organiged again this year and has proved to be a great success on account of the interest taken by the members. The purpose of the club is to convey to the pupil a generalt knowledge of laws governing our local societies and our State and National Assemblies. There is an enrollment of forty members and meetings are held in the Assembly room of the High School, on Tuesday evening of each week. The original constitution was adopted this year and work was begun at once. The work consists of theory, practice work, and debates in which both State and National questions are discussed. The society at all times is governed by Robert’s Rules of Order. Credit is given by the faculty for the work.. Those who received credit for the work last year were Lois Castell, Wilma Coy, Zema Ettinger, Marlin Ettinger, Florence Gilmore, Harry Gilmore. Burl Hall, Bess Harding, Dora Lazenby, Lotta Lazenby, Clela Olm-stead, Ralph Orwig. David Palfreyman, Imo Smith, Donald Sheldon, Ina Storey, Paul Swift, Mildred Webb and Ruth Woodring.

The short k afternoon was nearly at a close. Mrs. Stamper sat in her little room mending a small wool dress. She looked out of the window often as if she was expecting someone. Once she glanced across the street at the largev mansion-like house and saw a stranger standing on the porch. She noticed him particularly for this was her new neighbor. She wondered if he would be kind and friendly like her neighbors who had just moved out, or whether he would be proud and haughty because of his wealth. When she glanced up again she saw Lillian, her daughter, coining down the street with a boy a few years her senior. She wondered who the boy was for she knew that he was a stranger in the village. She watched them until they came to the crossing. Then the boy saluted Lillian and hurried to the big white house. She walked swiftly across the street, bounded up the steps and eagerly opened the door. “Oh. mother!” she exclaimed, “he’s the new boy at school, and lie’s the nicest boy!” Mrs. Stamper, amused by her daughter’s enthusiasm, said: “Well, Lillian, what is the boy’s name?” “It’s Carl,” explained Lillian, “Carl Johnson, and, Mother, just think, he is going to be our neighbor—he and his father.” Mrs. Stamper could not help but feel interested. So that tall, handsome man she had seen on the front porch was this boy's father. She wondered if lie would be as good as Lillian thought bis son was. “What are you thinking about, mamma?” said Lillian. You seem to have forgotten all about me.” “Oh. nothing, nothing, child. I, I just —,” she said confusedly. “Do you know where these people came from? Where is the little boy’s mother?’ Looking up sharply at her mother, she said. “Why, mamma, I don’t believe you care as much for them as I do. Yes, I know where they came from. Carl told me all about it. They have been traveling for two years, ever since his mother died, and now they have come here to rest.” “Ah,” she said with a smile, “they have a lovely place to rest. I wish that our house was better for your sake, Lillian." “Now don’t feel sorry, mamma, for our home is cosy and I love it.” Then she said with a little burst of enthusiasm, “Who knows, we may live in a large house like that some day.” “Hush, child,” murmured Mrs. Stamper, “you do not know what you are saying. I shall never marry again. Lillian, you should remember your dead father and respect him.” “Well, rnamsie, I do respect him and love him too, but now you know that you are too young to live alone all the rest of your life.”"Dear Lill ian. let's drop the subject. You must be nearly starved and I haven't started supper.” "All right, then you prepare supper while I get my English.” "Hadn't you better get your Algebra first? You know it is the most difficult for you.” "Oh. no Mother. We've got the best plan—I mean Carl and I. He is coming over after supper and help me get my Algebra and I am going to help him get his English. You see that way we will both get our lessons.” All was quiet for a while in the little home. Lillian worked diligently on her studies while her mother prepared supper. In the meantime Carl was giving his father an account of his school and classmates. As Car! entered the room where his father was reading, he glanced up and said, "Well, my son. how do you like the change?” Its fine, declared Lari. "All the boys are jolly and even the girls are friendly. The teachers seemed very kind and considerate and didn’t call on me to recite today.” "Ah! who was that pretty girl you were walking with? She must be one of those friendly girls, isn't she?” "Father you needn’t try to tease me. She certainly does seem to be a pleasant girl. Her name is Lillian Stamper and she and her mother live just across the street from us. so you see they will be our neighbors. She said that hei father had died about four years ago and had left her mother their home. She thinks the world of her mother for she works so hard to keep her in school and make her life pleasant. It is too bad that they can’t have everything they wish for like we have." " I here, there, sonny, I see you have become quite infatuated with her. You said that her mother was a widow. It certainly is too bad. I think that it is so difficult for a woman to get along alone in the world, especially when she has a child to support.” Ha! Ha! l ather, who is becoming interested now? I believe you feel as sorry for Lillian’s mother as I do for her.” ()h, no, you are mis-mis-taken," he said confusedly, "I assure you it’s only a passing interest I would take in any poor soul.” 1 can tell you more about our interesting neighbors after a while for after supper 1 am going over to Lillian’s and we are going to get our lessons together.” It is a bright idea, Carl. Mingling with your fellow students will make your school life more pleasant for you and also more beneficial. I only wish 1 were a boy again, sighed Mr. Johnson, "so I could go with you, too.” "Maybe you can go with me sometime, father, but I think you had better not go tonight.” Listen, Bridget is calling, isn’t she? Come, we must not keep her waiting tor you know' nothing makes her so angry as to have our meals get cold for us.” “Oh, wei!, Bridget gets angrv very quick I think. A woman as old as she ought to hold her temper.” said Carl indignantlv. A ou must not censure her too severely,” said his father reprovingly,“You know she has been our standby ever since your mother's death. I m sure vve couldn’t get along without her. Why neither of us can cook. I doubt if we could prepare a good cup of coffee." After they had eaten their supper. Carl jumped up from the table and exclaimed, “I must be going or Lillian will give me up. I wouldn’t want her to think I am one of these good-for-nothing fellows who does not keep his word." ■ When he had searched quite a while, he found his cap, books and pencil. Although they had bookcases and a place to hang their wraps, the articles were seldom put where they belonged. Bridget did her best to keep the house in order and everything in their places but their home seemed to lack the little cheerful touches, which are always present with a good house-wife. Carl hurried across the street and was soon cordially welcomed by Lillian and her mother. He could not help but notice how closely they resembled each other. Mrs. Stamper was a tall, slender woman. She had large, blue eyes, a sensitive little mouth, beautiful arched eyebrows and a wealth of golden brown hair. Although her hair was slightly streaked with gray, which was caused by her sorrow and hard work in late years, she had a smiling countenance and appeared quite young. After Lillian and Carl had their lessons, Mrs. Stamper brought in a light lunch for them. They were delighted for it was a pleasant surprise. “This is lots jollier than to have a hired girl prepare everything you eat. T assure you,” declared Carl. “Bridget is so cross and will not even wait supper a minute for us. I'll tell you Lillian, he said in a low tone, you certainly should be thankful to have such a good mother. How I wish I had one. I get so tired of having a hired girl around all the time." “I assure you I do appreciate her," said Lillian. “I know I could never get along without her. But, Carl, you must not think that you haven t anything to be thankful for. because you have a father and I haven t. I m sure he must be very good, too, if lie is your father. “I suppose that is the right way to look at it, for father is all that is good and true. He grants me all of my requests, especially if he thinks they will do me good; and lie is just as jolly as a boy.’ Mrs. Stamper smiled for she had heard what they had said in spite of their lowered voices. Although the praises were not meant for her to hear, she thought more of the children for them. How young and happy they were, she thought. I wish they could remain that way always instead of being compelled to go out into the world and face its trials and difficulties. How she wished that she could keep the knowledge of the mortgage on their home from Lillian, so that she would not worry. M any rate she would not tell her at present for something might happen. She had at least four months to raise the money and she thought that by hard work she might succeed. During the several months that followed this evening, Carl and Lillian were constantly together. They always prepared their lessons together and grew to be almost like brother and sister. Carl often took tea at Mrs. Stamper’s and sometimes his father would join them. It was then that theyenjoyed themselves best. In spite of these happy evenings together. Mrs. Stamper began to look careworn and thin. She took in sewing and worked harder every day. Her one desire was to pay ofif the mortgage and save their home. The time when the mortgage had to be paid was very near at hand and she did not have near enough money. It seemed to her as if fighting for an existence would never end. Lillian noticed that her mother looked troubled and careworn. She watched her for several days and then unable to stand it any longer, she went to her and said: “Mamsie, dear, what is the matter? You look so troubled and thin lately that I am sure something must be wrong." "Nothing is wrong, Lillian. I just feel rather tired. I guess that it must be that spring is coming,” she said with a faint attempt to be cheerful. Lillian did not say any more to her mother on that subject for she saw that it worried her. Instead she went to Carl and confided in him, for he seemed to her like a brother. “Carl,” she said, “Mamma looks so tired and troubled lately and I can't get her to tell me what is wrong. I’m sure something must be the matter or Mamma would be cheerful. Oh, what shall I do?" “Don’t worry, little girl," he pleaded. “It grieves me to see you troubled. I wouldn’t bother my mother with questions, and by and by she will confide in you with her own will.” Lillian had not been the only person to notice her mother's trouble, for Mr. Johnson, their kindest friend, had noticed it also. He had pondered over it a great deal and finally came to the conclusion that it must be some financial trouble. By inquiring here and there and by putting two and two together, he found out the serious position that she was in. He was a very generous man and combined with this was an interest for her welfare, which made him decide to aid her. He knew that she was a proud woman and that he would have to seek some other way to help her besides giving her money. He called on Mr. Carr, the man who held the mortgage. Mr. Carr was very pleased by his call for he liked to associate with the wealthy class. He was a very greedy man. Although he was rich, his aim was to get more money. He scorned the poor and thought that if they were not able to pay their debts they should suffer the consequences. During their conversation, Mr. Johnson said, “By the way, I hear you have a mortgage on Mrs. Stamper’s property.” Mr. Carr looked up with a greedy gleam in his cold, grey eyes and said, “I certainly have and it won’t be long before I can foreclose it either.” “Ah! you wouldn’t do that,” he said with feigned surprise. “That is the only home she and her little daughter have.” “I know that, but if she isn't able to meet the mortgage, I shall foreclose. She can find another place to live. What is it to me whether she has a home or not.” "I would dread to see you do that. Suppose we could come to terms. I would like to buy off that mortgage. Now that would be fair wouldn't it?” "Well, T don't believe that I would want to sell it,” said Mr. Carr. "Yousee that property is worth a hundred and fifty or two hundred dollars besides the mortgage.” Mr. Johnson could hardly conceal his disgust for this fawning, grasping money-maker. He knew that if he wished to make the deal with Mr. Carr, he would have to be careful not to offend him. “Well, now let us come to terms,” he said pleasantly. “You say that you think the place is worth about a hundred and fifty dollars besides the mortgage. I think you are putting it too high, but I will give you a hundred dollars besides the mortgage.” Mr. Carr thought it over a long time and then finally said: “I do think the property is worth six hundred and fifty or seven hundred dollars, but since you are one of my friends, I’ll let you have it for six hundred.” After they had made out the papers and the mortgage was in Mr. Johnson's hands, he returned to his home feeling very pleased with his deal. Now his neighbor would not lose her home. If he could have his way about it, she would not pay off the mortgage at all. but would just cancel it. He wondered what she would say when she found out that the mortgage was in his possession. He was pondering over what the outcome of this act would be when Bridget, the cook, burst into the room. Her face was red and her dark eyes flashed angrily. “I tell you, Mr. Johnson,"’ she said, “You have the rudest, most ill-mannered son I ever saw. I hate him. I—. I—.” “Come, Bridget, explain. Don't be foolish. I don’t even know what you are talking about.” “Foolish, am I,” iier eyes positively glaring. “I think you are the one who is the fool!" “Stop!" said Mr. Johnson, warningly. “I told you that I wanted an explanation.” “Well, your son has been out in the kitchen meddling. He has been telling how his mother made her biscuits and pies. I know more about cooking than she ever dared to know. Haven’t I cooked all my life?” Here Carl entered the room and declared stoutly: “I don't care if you have cooked a long time. I guess that you can't cook as good as Mother could. You can’t deny either that those biscuits were burning when I looked at them.” “Carl, don't say any more." Then addressing Bridget, he said. “Tell me about the rest.” “The rest," she fairly screamed, “Isn't that enough! I’ll not stay here another minute to be insulted by both of you.” Then she flounced out of the room, collected her few belongings and soon came back with her wraps on. She stalked up to Mr. Johnson indignantly. “Now where is the money you owe me?” He looked at her thunderstruck. Did she really mean to leave them. There was a determined look in her eyes which assured him that she could not be persuaded to remain. He opened his pocketbook like a man in a dream and paid he;. She was soon out of the house and far down the street. They did not doubt that she was going to stay with her sister until she could find work elsewhere.“It’s too bad,” exclaimed Mr. Johnson. “I’ve been expecting it for a long time for Bridget is so quick tempered.” “I suppose it was partly my fault,” owned Carl. “But I just couldn't help it.” “I can't blame you, mv son, for she accused both of us of insulting her. Ha! Ha! It's rather funny after all. We had better laugh than cry over spilled milk.” Just then there was a light tap on the door and Lillian entered. “What are you laughing at so heartily?” she inquired. Carl spoke up quickly, “Bridget has got angry and left us. She has certainly left us in a pickle too, for neither of us know anything about cooking. We were just laughing about the little speech she gave us before she left.” “That's too bad,” said Lillian, sympathetically. “Maybe Mamma can •come over and help you until you can get another cook.” “Ah, I hadn't thought of that,” said Mr. Johnson. “We would appreciate it ever so much if she could come, but of course we wouldn't want to put Tier out at ail.” “It wouldn’t bother her,” said Lillian innocently. “I’m sure she would love to help you. I must not forget what Mamma sent me over here for. She wanted to know it" you had a law book. It seems queer that Mamma should want a law book, doesn't it?” “My dear child, I don't believe I have got one in the house,” he said. To himself he thought, “The pool dear is still worrying about that mortgage. Won't she be surprised when she learns that I have it. How I wish she would let me lighten all of her burdens.” “Well, it will be all right anyway,” said Lillian. “I’ll hurry back now Sind tell Mamma about Bridget leaving you. I'll promise you for sure that Mamma will be over to get your dinner.” When Lillian reached home she •exclaimed: “Mother, he hasn't got a law book, but what do you think has happened ?" "I don't know, I am sure.” “Bridget has got angry and left them. Carl says they are in a pickle Tor neither of them can cook. I feel so sorry for them. I told them that 1 knew that you would be glad to help them until they can find a girl. Mr. Johnson seemed so pleased. You’ll go, won't you?" “Yes, I will go. It would not be any more than fair for they have been so kind to us.” “Why, Mother, you act as if you dreaded to go. There's not another olace in the world I'd rather go. They have such a bea-u-ti-ful house." “Yes, to tell the truth. I would rather not go. I see you do not sympathize with me but you will understand when you are older. There is one thing I must tell you before I go over there. Lillian." “Oh, hurry up and tell me quick! is it a surprise?" “My child, you do not know how much you grieve me. I believe it is a - prise, but a very, very sad one. Our home, our only home, is mortgagedand tomorrow is the clay it will be foreclosed. Oh, think of it, Iillian. How terrible it is.’’ “Mamma, don’t grieve so. I'm sure if we put our trust in God, lie wilb help us, and everything will come out all right.” “Well, i hope so,” said Mrs. Stamper despairingly. Although Lillian felt very sorry for her mother, she was too young to. realize fully the seriousness of the mortgage. While Mrs. Stamper was doing her morning work, she could not help thinking that this most likely would! be the last time she would do her morning work there. She knew that she-could not look for any help from Mr. Carr, for his greed for gold was too welt known. She knew that she would not be the first widow that he had turned! into the cold, merciless world without shelter. “Come, Lillian, it is almost ten o’clock. I think it is time to go over to Mr. Johnson’s. You may go to and help me get dinner if you wish.” “Oh. I’d like nothing better,” cried Lillian joyously. As soon as they reached Mr. Johnson's, Carl opened the door and wek coined them warmly. “Well, I see we are not going to lack for something to eat if our cook; did leave us.” “I could not let you and your father starve for you are my best friends,” said Mrs. Stamper pleasantly. Here Mi. Johnson stepped up and said: “It is so good of you to come- and lie!]) us. I don't know what we would do if we did not have such a kindj neighbor.” “Carl you may go into the parlor and show Lillian that new piano I got for you while I show Mrs. Sta.mper the kitchen.” “There, now since the children are gone. I can talk to you.” he said. “£ have something very important to tell you.” She looked up inquiringly. “The fact of it is, I've bought the mortgage on your place. I could not think of having Carr foreclose, for I knew what it would mean to you and Lillian." “You aie so kind,” she murmured. “How can I ever repay you. I can not pay you the money at present, but I promise you if I live and keep my health you shall not be the loser.” “Yes, but I can not wait so long for my pay,” he said playfully. She looked so troubled. “Oh, what shall I do, I have nothing to give-yon.” “Ah, you have something that I would give the whole world to possess,,s he said in a low, tense voice. She looked up startled when she detected his meaning, but only saids “What is it?” “It is your own dear self,” he said tenderly. “Do you think I am asking too much ?” “That can never be,” she said regretfully. “But why?” he said as if his whole life depended upon it.“It is our station in life. You are wealthy and I am only a poor widow. If you would stop to reflect you would not think of doing such a thing." “Yes, hut I have thought of it often. I have pondered over it day by dav and dreamed about it by night. I know that unless you will be my wife my life will be ruined,” he said earnestly. She stood before him silently for a little while but her mind was busy. It would mean so much for Lillian and her if she would marry him. Lillian would have a good education, and they would not have to slave the rest of their lives. The mortgage would be canceled and above everything she knew that she loved him. He was watching her intently. When she raised her eyes and with a smile took a step toward him, he knew that he had won. He caught her around the waist, planted a kiss on her flushed cheek and together they started toward the kitchen. Just then Carl and Lillian came hurrying into the room and cried. “We’re almost starved. Is dinner ready?” "I don't believe they have left this room,” said Lillian to Carl. “What on earth have you folks been doing?” said Carl as he glanced at their happy faces. “My son. I've been finding you a mother.” “Do you mean —?” “Yes, I mean Rose is going to be your mother and my wife, and Lillian I’m going to be your father." "Why, Mother," said Lillian with astonishment, “I thought that you would never marry again.” "1 believe I did say that, but you want to remember,” she said blushing prettily, "That circumstances alter cases.” They all went to the kitchen and prepared the supper together. What a supper it was. They had everything that they could wish for. It was truly a dinner of Thanksgiving. When Mrs. Stamper and Lillian reached home, Mrs. Stamper told Lillian of her great joy. "Lillian,” said Mrs. Stamper joyfully. “Our troubles are ended. The mortgage is canceled and soon we will go to live in that lovely home with your father and brother.” “God has listened to our prayers,” said Lillian. “How very thankful we should be.” —Helen Rummel, ’13. A Warning to Latin Students. O never use a Pony, Whatever else you do, For ponies carry tales you know, And they might tell on you.] □ She Store far ffilnrktmt I II II II I ARTWELL!" called the gruff voice of the brakeman. A number of young men and women began to get their suitcases down from the racks above the seats and to collect their parcels, preparatory to cgtting. off at the station. The train gradually slowed down and the aisle was filled with a line of college students returning from their holiday vacation. and ready to begin the spring term at Rockton College. As they first began to descend the platform, they were greeted by deafening yells that came from a circle of young men wearing blue and gold sweaters. The last Rockton had just died away, when a group of young men, wearing orange and black toques, came out of one of the cars onto the platform and gave nine rahs for Dabolt Academy. Dabolt was two stations beyond Hartwell. There had always been a continuous strife between the two schools. The yells of first one group and then the other shook the car windows. As the train started off both started together with all the vim they could muster. Until the train was out of sight, both contestants strained their throats in an effort to be victorious for their school in even the amount of noise. There were many warm handshakes and welcome greetings from the students who had arrived the day before. ‘Hello, Bob!” shouted his old room-mate, Tom Anderson, “I guess I got back first for once.” ‘‘Can’t say but what you did this time,” responded Bob. as he grasped Tom’s hand and gave it a quick squeeze which almost lifted Tom off his feet. ‘‘Did you think my hand was an angleworm that was going to crawl away ?” “Xo," replied Bob, ”1 thought it was the hand of a true friend, and I didn’t want it to get away from me.” Tom picked up one of Bob’s suitcases and they started for the South Dormitory. On their way they met a number of old students and passed some, whom they supposed were the new Freshies. “What on earth do you call that thing up ahead there, Tom?” Bob referred to a tall, gawky-looking fellow a short distance ahead of them, who was dressed in a brown derbv, checkered overcoat, tan gloves, and tan shoes. He was loitering along, swinging his suitcase, evidently taking in all the views and trying to cover the whole sidewalk. “I don’t know whether he is a Freshman, or just a common millionaire,” Tom returned with a laugh. The boys soon overtook the new comer, but he paid no attention to their approach behind him As the boys attempted to pass him. he walked ‘ZZ-Z-S-S-T BOO.vP “ROCKTON! ROCKTON! ROCKTON!”to the side of the walk on which they attempted to pass The same thing was repeated on the opposite side of the walk; but the boys did not stop this time, nor did they get off on the grass. Bob’s knee came in contact with the swinging suitcase and it shot out of the young man’s hand and stopped right side up, for a wonder, about a yard ahead. Tom’s elbow caught the fellow in the ribs, and the boys passed on as though nothing had happened. They were greeted from behind by a number of names from their new acquaintance. Bob and Tom were soon in their old room in the South Dormitory. Every thing was about the same as it had been before the holiday vacation, with the exception of a few new pennants, which Tom had brought from home and had added to the large number already on the walls. They immediately began to talk about the pleasures of the vacation. While they were busy talking. Bob's trunk came and the rest of the morning was given over to unpacking. On their way to dinner they met Dick Harmon, who asked them if they had seen any of the brilliant looking new Freshmen. They replied, with a laugh, that they had seen several and that it had been their pleasure to meet one of the most dazzling. Then they told of the rather unexpected introduction. “I'm thinking.” said Dick, “that the whole dazzling bunch will get a souzing some night in the near future.” When the boys were back in their rooms after dinner, and seated near the study table. Bob opened the conversation. “When I was home this vacation, father was talking about his college life. While we were talking, he reached down in his coat pocket and pulled out a small square box. He opened it and took out a beautiful gold medal. I looked at it admiringly. It was beautifully engraved and read, ‘Charles H. Randal, for four years the winner of the mile run at Rockton College. Cla s of ’88.’ ‘Robert.’ he said, ‘nothing would please me more than to have you get on the track team this year, and do something for old Rockton. You have two more years there and that is time enough for you to do something that would make her proud of you.’ I promised him that I would try for all that was in me for a place on the team." “Well. Bob. what are you going to try for?” “As my wind is pretty good. I have a notion to try for the mile run. What do you think about it?" “You know as well as I do that it will take a lot of hard work and training to get on that, with that Graves, who won the run last year. You certainly ought to beat that Morgan, though, who ran with him. If that fool hadn't started so fast at first, he could easily have made third for us, and that would have tied the meet. Didn’t Daholt think they were something great, though they only beat us by one point? We’ll show them a thing or two, this year.” “I hope so,” said Bob. The next morning school began again, with an abundance of greenquality. Bob passed his acquaintance of the day before and spoke to him, but received no reply. Along in March, work on the track team began in earnest. The fellows re-elected Ralph Bartlett captain and trainer of the team. When Bartlett asked Bob what he could do, he replied: “Xot very much. I'm afraid, but I would like to try for the mile run.” “You meet me at the cinder track tomorrow at two o'clock,” said Bartlett. “All right,” responded Bob, ‘‘I'll be there.” There were four applicants for the mile run event: Graves, Morgan, Skinny Hawser, who was the tall Freshman whom Bob and Tom had met on the sidewalk, and himself. Randal practised every day on the track, and after many weeks of hard work, he could nearly keep up with Graves. Billy and Bob were the best of friends. Bob was running much better than Morgan or Hawser and he began to feel certain of a place on the team. By the appearances and actions of Morgan and Skinny, Randal could see that they were very jealous of him. One Monday, Bob was the last one oft" the track. While he was in the dressing room, Bartlett came in. As Bob was getting into his trousers, an old pipe and a package of smoking tobacco fell out of his hip pocket. “That looks rather bad for you, Randal,” said Bartlett in surprise. “Don’t you know that it is against the rules for a smoker to be on the track team? I never thought this —" "There is a mistake somewhere.” Bob interrupted. “I can't account for those.” “I certainly hope there is a mistake," Bartlett soberly replied as he left the room. Although Randal knew nothing about it, Ralph Bartlett searched his clothing every day, and three times during that week took a partly used package of smoking tobacco and a pipe from Bob's pocket. Bob thought no more about the unpleasant incident of Monday until he came up to his room on Saturday and found a note, lying on the table, addressed to him. He opened it and read : Mr. Randal: I believed last Monday that there had been a mistake somewhere; but since then 1 have three times found strong proof against you. Under these conditions, it will do you no good to practice longer. It is with great regret that 1 send this to you. for you are doing excellent work and was certain of the place along with Graves. RALPH K. BARTLETT. Bob sank into a chair. What could all this mean? He had never taken a whiff in his life. Just then Tom came in. “What’s the matter old chap? You look as if you had lost your best friend.” Bob said nothing but handed Tom the note. Anderson's face grew red as he finished reading. “What on earth does this mean?” he said as he threw the note down on the table.Randal told him all he knew about it. “If I ever find the scoundrel at the head of this, you’ll never find the pieces when I get through with him!’’ Tom shouted. “This is a niece piece of business to come ofif about a week before the meet.” “I know there is an unintentional mistake somewhere,” said Bob, “but I guess the best thing for us to do is to keep the thing quiet until something turns up.” Monday, the big day in Hartwell, was an ideal day for the track meet. The grounds were in excellent condition. Everybody was anxiously waiting for one thirty to come around. From the grand-stands waved hundreds of blue and gold streamers. When the time came for the meet to begin, the grounds were crowded with enthusiastic young men and women, who were cheering lustily. Blue and gold pennants, and orange and black pennants, were fluttering and waving on all sides. The first event proved that the teams were evenly matched, as usual. First one team was a few points ahead and then the other would creep up and take the lead. Bob and Tom stood watching the contests, but neither was as enthusiastic as he had been the previous year. Both had looked for a note with an apology and something that would clear up the unfortunate matter, but none had come. “What's the matter over there?” said Tom, pointing to the rapidly increasing crowd which had gathered near to where the running broad jump was being held. Both boys started in that direction, but before they reached the crowd, word came to them that Graves had sprained his ankle. There was a lull in the excitement, and the yelling from the Rockton rooters had ceased. The score now stood twenty-eight to twenty-seven in favor of Dabolt. There was only one more event, the mile run. and now the man in whom Rockton had placed her hopes for victory, was being carried off the field with a sprained ankle. Bartlett was troubled seriously. He had little confidence in Morgan, and the only man he had to put in with him was Hawser, who he was certain could do nothing against the fleet Dabolt men. He went into the dressing room and met Hawser coming towards him. “Captain,” he faltered, “I have played the part of a cowardly fool! Let Randal run! I was the cause of his discharge —” But Bartlett was gone with a rush. Bob saw Bartlett making towards him on a dead run. He nudged Tom and they stepped aside to let him pass. “Randal! Randal! Won’t you forgive me? 1 have found the cause of all this. Hawser has owned up. I have been too hasty. Bob, I know that I can’t make it right with you. I don't ask you to run for me, but please run for the sake of old Rockton.” As Bartlett gasped out these words his face gew pale. “Bob,” he said, “this meet is up to you.” Randal was soon in his running suit and out on the field. His heart leaped with joy, and Tom was at his side encoraging him all he could. The four runners, the two from Dabolt, Morgan, and Bob were in line. Crash! went the pistol, and the race was on. Boh was cheered on by yell after yell from the rooters: but he heard not a word. 11 is mind was on the last words of Bartlett—“Bob, this meet is up to you.” At the last quartermile post, Bob and the two Dabolt men were running neck and neck, with Morgan just behind. Then all began to quicken their pace. The Dabolt man on Bob’s right was breathing hard and gradually began to fall back. As they passed the last eighth mile post, the Dabolt man was a little in the lead. Then Bob began to run as he had never run before. 1 hings began to look dim. Every muscle was strained to the task. He was deaf to the many loud cheers as he passed. The Dabolt man was just behind now. Suddenly the tape snapped and he fell to the ground. Morgan came in a second behind the Dabolt man. “Who won?” Bob asked as he opened bis eyes. “The three R’s,” Tom replied. “Robert Randal and Rockton. —DOXALD G. SHELDON. QQQ (Utr Sumtmrr lUiaritrrs I II II I A, I’ve been a thinkin’,” said Aunt Emily Holden after a long silence. “Well, so hev I,” responded her husband. “You’re always a say’n smart things, Zeb. ’Pears to me I never can say a word but what y’u get me off th’ track.” “There, there, I didn’t mean anything, mother. Now whut wus it y’u was a thinkin’ on?” answered Uncle Zeb Holden apologetically. “Well, I was a thinkin’, pa. as how—well, it's jest a might lonesome here on th’ farm, so far from both th’ railroad stations, an' pa. can't I—can’t we— take some boarders?” Aunt Emily caught her breath; at last the thing was out. “Because.” she hurried on when she saw her husband’s look of blank astonishment, “thare’ll be money in it, an' they’ll be a heap o' company t’ me when y'u’re busy workin’ all day.” “Mother, be y’u crazy?” gasped the dumfounded Zeb. “ by, why, we’ve been married nigh on to thirty years, an' this is the fust time you've been loneseome!’’ "Its not the fust time, pa,” confessed Aunt Emily timidly, “but y’u didn’t know it. Say, can’t we. pa? can’t I try boarders for just a little bit?” she pleaded. “No! y’u— y’u can’t'” he blustered as he stamped from the room. Aunt Emily sighed and said no more to him for a week. Then she tried it again. Zeb was bitching up to go to town, whistling and talking by turns as he got things ready. “Pa!” came the shrill cry from the kitchen. “Well, mother!” “I want to see y’u before y’u go to town!” “Umph!” he grunted as be continued to harness the horses.“Pa, ain't y'u never cornin’?” impatiently came the call again as Mr. Ilolden stepped out on the porch, fanning herself with her apron. "Whut’s th' use o' hurryin’, I’de like t’ know. Tain't likely she wants nothin’ important anyway.” said Zeb as he turned to go up to the house. "Pa. y'u do heat all I ever heerd tell o'," declared Aunt Emily. "I want y'u t' take this letter along o'y'u." "Whut's it fur? Pome more o’ that pesky tea?” "Xo, it ain't, father." said Emily slowly and distinctly. “It's one of them pieces t' put in th’ paper fur boarders. I’m a goin’ t’ hev some, father. Why, pa, look at our house an' th’ lawn y'u take so much keep of. Y'u know thare beautiful. Y'u don't want 'em t’ go t’ waste! An’ besides,” she groped for words to express her thoughts, but ended lamely, “thare’s money in it.” There was a curious look on Farmer Zeb’s face, a mixture of wonder and quiet amusement. Then he spoke: "Mother, if you're so alfired dead sot on this idee, wall, I'll jest mail this fur y'u. though tain't likely y'u'll ever hear from it." "Oh, pa!" and Emily began to sob hysterically, “I—I’m s— so glad.” “Shaw,” said Zeb as lie laid his rough hand tenderly on her bowed head. “Don’t cry, mother; we'll hev our boarders all right. I'll mail this letter t’ th’ paper an' then I'll soon be back.” Mrs. Holden was up in a minute with her arms around the old man’s neck. “Tut. tut, don't take on so, mother,” he said cheerfully. "I reckon I didn't know as how y'u wus so lonesome as all that; but this here." lie tapped the letter with his finger, “will fix that.” Suddenly, as he glanced through the window, he exclaimed: "Whoa, there! Them pesky colts won’t never stand two minutes!” and he hurried to the barn just in time to catch one of the running horses by the bit. “Mother, kin y'u hold these critters till I get in?” he called back to the house; and Aunt Emily tied down the walk to the buggy. "Whoa, now, steady!" he commanded as he jumped into the buggy. “There,” he ejaculated. and his wife let go her hold on the horse’s mane. “Be back as soon as I kin." Aunt Emily watched the horses plunging down the road till they were out of sight, then she turned and slowly went back to the kitchen. "I lowed Zeb wouldn't kecr after all,” she mused, “it's jest his nature to be that way.” A week soon passed and still another, yet no answer came to their advertisement for boarders. “Sure y'u writ that piece right?” said Zeb one afternoon. "Sure,” replied Mrs. Holden. "Wall, I'm goin' jest this one more time an' if thare ain't nothin' at the pustofifice fur us, I w'on’t go agin.” “All right, pa," Emily said meekly, for a little fear had crept into her mind that her advertisement might not be answered. She spent the afternoon busily cleaning up the rooms which she hoped to have occupied by boarders. “If anyone should jest happen t' come,” she thought, “thar’ll be clean rooms fur ’em ” And so busy w as she that she did not know when Zeb returned.She had just gone to the kitchen for something, when Zeb startled her by running into the room and excitedly waving two letters over his head. “I've got ’em, mother,” he shouted. “I 'low as how y’u hev, Zeb Holden,” returned his wife calmly, although she too, was terribly excited. “Law, do hold still, pa,” she continued sharply, "an' gimme them letters'." Zeb tossed them into her lap and sank weakly into a chair. “Read ’em,” he said faintly. "With trembling fingers Aunt Emily tore open a neat, small envelope, and read slowly as follows: “New York, June io, 1904. My dear Mrs. Holden: I read your advertisement in the “Daily News,” and from the description of your home I think it is the place I want; but I must be the only boarder as I want absolute quiet. I will arrive there on the eleventh. I will bring a trunk and two suitcases. Can you have some one meet me at the train? Yours respectfully, SIDNEY LATHORNE. P. S.: My train leaves here in twenty minutes.” “Well, well, Emily,” said Zeb when she had finished reading the letters, “that do beat all I ever see! That young man must be kind o’ stuck uppish.” “Nonsense, Zeb, them are city ways. Now I’ll read th’ other one.” “Brooklyn, N. Y., June 10, 1904. My dear Mrs. Holden: I saw your advertisement in the “Daily News,” for boarders. Your terms are entirely satisfactory to me but I must be your only boarder. I shall bring two suitcases. Please have some one meet me at the train. Yours respectfully, MARION JAMES.” “Why, look here. Zeb,” cried Emily in dismay, “they both want t’ be th’ only boarder Now what’ll we do? They say thare both a coinin’ tomorrow, an’ they’ll come from different ways.” “I’ll tell y’u, Emily,” said Zeb after a few moments thought, “y’u kin take old Nancy an’ go after that Marion somebody, an’ I’ll take the colts after Mr. Sidney.” “Law, pa, y’u always, had a hed fur figurin’. You’ll need th’ wagon fur that fellers trunk; but sakes alive, Zeb! what on ’arth will they do fur their meals?” “Consarned if I know, Emily, an’ I reckon I don’t keer. If they don’t wan’t t’ stay, why they kin git!” and Zeb slammed the door after him. “For the land’s sakes!” Aunt Emily threw up her hands in astonishment at this speech. “Y’u kin never tell,” she said as she shook her head, “jest whut these meti-folks ’ll do next!” The next morning the Holdens were up before daylight, and as soon as breakfast was over Zeb went out to hitch up the horses. “Hain’t y’u goin’ t’ put on you’re good clothes, pa?” Aunt Emily called from the house, “them city fellers seem kind o’ dressed up t’ my notion.”“These old 'uns are good nuf, I low, fur any city feller, an’ 1 ain’t a goin’ t’ change ’em neither.” he snapped. Aunt Emily said no more, but she changed the good dress which she had put on when she got up, for a neat, though faded, brown calico one; and by the time she had put hte house in order for the arrival of her two boarders. Uncle Zeb had the team at the door. “It’s a long drive, Emily,” he said, “you’d better take a robe along or you’r fur. The girl might git a leetle mite cold." “Alright, jest put it in th’ back o’ the buggy,” and “goodby, father," she added as she took up the reins and clucked to the old, brown horse. ‘AYe’ll be back as soon as we kin.” Zeb watched his wife drive down the road until a turn into the woods hid the buggy from sight. Then he jumped into his wagon and started in the opposite direction for the other distant railroad station. The horses were feeling extra good that morning, and he arrived at the station a few minutes before train time. Soon the shrill shriek of the locomotive was heard and the little train came puffing into the station. Zeb strained his eyes to get the first glimpse of his new boarder. A large trunk was thrown from the baggage car onto the platform. Then a young girl dressed in a neat, brown traveling suit, and carrying two suitcases, stepped to the ground. Back in the wagon Zeb was saying to his horses: “Wall, I wonder whut’s th’ matter with our city feller,” when he heard a sweet, girlish voice close by his side. "i beg your pardon, sir, but you are Mr. Holden, aren’t you? I am Sidney Lathorne, your new boarder.” And before the astonished Zeb could recover from his surprise, she spoke again. “Will you help me with my baggage, please.” Zeb jumped awkardly to the ground. “Whew, what will Aunt Emily sav!" he thought nervously, “I wish I’d a changed my clothes.” When the trunk and suitcases were stowed away in the big wagon and Sidney was on the seat beside him, he chirruped to his horses and they started for home. Xot a word was said during the first two or three miles. In fact from a great number of side glances which Zeb bestowed on her. he concluded that she didn’t want to talk. She sat on the uncomfortable seat as if she had quite forgotten the existence of Zeb. A slight breeze had blown a few stray curls across one cheek, her lips were parted in a pleasant smile, and her eyes, (“as black as all git out!" Zeb declared,) held a dreamy, far-away look. Once when the horses stumbled and Zeb spoke to quiet them, she took a long breath and seemed just to recollect that he sat beside her. “Mr. Holden,” she said in her low, musical voice,” can’t it be arranged so that I can take my meals in my room? I shall be busy every day. painting, and I do not like to interrupt my work.” “Jest th’ thing!" mumbled Zeb to himself, “so’s she can’t meet thut Marion James. Why Emily’ll be tickled t’ death.“What was that you said?” Sidney asked politely. Then in confusion he said: “Yes’m, I hope so.” “You hope so!” she exclaimed, and her merry laugh rang out, causing Uncle Zeb to look at her in surprise and not a little alarm. “That's real nice of you,” she declared, and her eyes twinkled when she saw his look of dismay, “but you’ll have to see me some times even if you won’t want to; once in a while I will want to do sketching out ofdoors.” “Yes'm,” said Uncle Zeb meekly as he flicked an imaginary fly off the horse with his whip. After a while under the influence of Sidney’s merry chatter, his embarrassment fled and they talked and laughed together like old friends. He found himself telling her about his home and Emily, and when at last they drew up before the farm house, they were on the best of terms. A glance at the barn showed Zeb that Emily was not home yet, but he knew that she might come any minute with Marion James. He helped Sidney from the high wagon seat and seated her in Emily’s rocker on the cool porch. After a while he succeeded in getting her trunk and suitcases up to her room. “I reckon you’d like t’ go up t" you’re room now wouldn’t yu?” he inquired as he mopped his face with a large, red bandana. “Why, yes, if you please,” she answered, “I’m dreadfully tired.” In the meanwhile, Aunt Emily was waiting at the other little railroad station to welcome Marion James. Her face was flushed with excitement as she leaned from the buggy to watch the approaching train. In a minute it stopped at the station. A young man carrying two suit cases jumped briskly to the ground. He stood looking around for a few moments and then, to Mrs. Holden’s great surprise, came right up to the buggy. “How-do-you-do, I'm sure you are Mrs. Holden,” he said with a frank smile as he touched his hat. “I’m Marion James, your new boarder. Shall I put my grips in the back of the buggy?” Finally Emily managed to stammer: “Yu’re not a girl, not Marion James!” , I’m not a girl.” the young man said with a smile, “but I am Marion James.” „ “But I wus a lookin’ fur a girl,” she protested. “I’m sorry,” he said and a slight shadow crossed his face, “won’t I do?” “I reckon y’u will,” she laughed, “git in t’ th’ buggy.” “Please let me drive, Mrs. Holden,” he said boyishly. She nodded and gave the reins over to him. Some how she felt so small beside this big, handsome, overgrown boy. Before the first mile was over, they were talking and laughing together like two children. Emily wanted to feel offended with him, yet try as she might, she could not. “Mrs. Holden,” suddenly Marion spoke seriously, “you remind me of my mother; and come to think of it, you’ll have to be my mother for a while at least." he smiled down at her. “Can I eat with you just the same as if I were at home? Really, I won’t eat much!”“Yu sure kin.” said Emily with a smile, “an" yu kin call me Aunt Emily, like everyone around this a place does.” “All right. Aunt Emily,” he said a little shyly, “I’m starved for something to eat. It must be this country air, already.” It was late when they drove up to the house. Uncle Zeb came out to put up the horse. “Where’s th' girl. Emily?" he asked, "didn’t she come?” “Here she is, pa." his wife said mischievously as she led Marion up to him. “Wall!" ejaculated pa as he felt his hand grasped in a hearty hand-shake. Two weeks passed and things were going smoothly at the Holden’s; and as yet neither boarder knew of the presence of the other. Sidney rarely came down stairs from her room, and when she did Marion was always in his favorite spot in the woods. Each day Emily grew more attached to her boarders. “Marion’s jest like a leetle boy," she declared to Zeb, “what on airth’ll we do when he goes away?" "I reckon we’ll miss Sidney jest as much as Marion." said Zeb hotly. “Wall, I don’t jest know," returned his wife calmly, “she’s always a stayin’ in her room an’ a paintin’. Pears to me she’s never out o’ doors a minute. Say. but ain’t it funny they hain’t never seen each other yit?” she asked. “Sh-h, mother,” he whispered as he stepped to the door, “she’s a coinin’ down stairs now an’ that feller’s liable t’ come in anytime.” “Aunt Emily,” said Sidney coming into the room, “won’t you come up and look at some of my paintings?” “Law, Sidney, I sure will," answered the delighted Emily, and she followed the girl up the wide stairs to her room. As Sidney opened the door. Mrs. Holden looked in wonder at the walls of the little room. Landscapes of every description decorated every conceivable place where a picture might be placed. “Did yu do all these here?" she asked in bewilderment. "Yes, Aunt Emily," said Sidney, laughing and not a little pleased. “See, here are the best of my paintings,” she continued as she pulled a portfolio from her trunk. "Land sakes!" ejaculated Mrs. Holden, as five beautiful landscapes were held up to the light for her inspection. “This one,” Sidney said softly and dreamily as she indicated a half finished one, “made me cpiarrel with my best friend." "Do tell," Aunt Emily said sympathetically. “She must not o’ loved yu like we’uns do t’ quarrel over a pitcher.” “You are mistaken," said Sidney a little coldly, "‘but it wasn't a girl I quarreled with.” “Oh!" said the embarrassed Emily; but when she looked at Sidney to see if she were very angry, she saw two tears roll down her cheeks. Hastily brushing her eyes with the back of her hand. Sidney said gaily: “What do you think of my paintings. Aunt Emily?”“Thare th’ most beautiful I hev ever seen,” said Emily emphatically, “but don't yu think yu ought t’ get out o’ doors more? Yu jest set an' paint all day long an’ it tain't good fur yu, nohow.” "I’ve been thinking of the same thing,” replied Sidney, “and so tomorrow I'm going out in the woods to sketch: and I’m coming down to supper tonight. Now don’t you think I’m making a good beginning?” “O, law!” thought Emily in alarm, “she’ll sure meet Marion!” Then aloud she said quickly : "That’s great, yu kin help me git th’ supper ready fur pa. if yu want t’.” Sidney jumped up and ran down to the kitchen where Aunt Emily helped her into a big gingham apron and set her to peeling potatoes. Supper was soon ready and Emily went to the barn to call Zeb and see where Marion was, while Sidney set the table. “Pa,” she said, “where’s Marion?” Zeb did not answer but pointed down the path which led to the woods. In the fading light Emily saw him approaching. His shoulders were bent forward dejectedly, and, as he came nearer, she saw that his face looked haggard and worn. “Mother,” said Zeb in a whisper, “thare be somethin’ wrong with that feller. Why, lie’s been moping ’round fur two hull days an ain’t hardly said a word t’ me!” "He ain't sick is he?” questioned Emily in some alarm as she watched Marion go slowly up the steps. “Can’t tell,” said Zeb shortly, "let's go t’ supper, I’m as hungry as a bear.” As luck would have it, Marion did not come down to supper that night; nor did he take his usual evening walk. The next morning as soon as breakfast was over he took a book and his pipe and started down the path that led to the woods. Soon after he had taken his departure, Sidney came running down the stairs with a pencil in one hand and a portfolio in the other. “Goodby, Aunt Emily,” she called, “please don’t wait dinner for me; for I probably shall find the woods too interesting to come back right away!” She threw a kiss to Mrs. Holden and waved her hand to Uncle Zeb who was at the barn, as she started down the path to the woods. Soon she stopped on the top of a high hill to look at the scene below her. To the right was a long stretch of woods so dense that no rays of the hot sun found their way into them : while on the left was a level plain dotted only here and there with patches of trees. Sidney gazed with admiration on the scene for the country was new to her. How good it felt to get out into the fresh air and sunshine! And how drowsy the sunshine made her feel I Suddenly she was startled by a step behind her and she turned quickly. “Marion !” she cried. “Sidney!” he gasped in astonishment. Then she recovered herself with an effort and drew back haughtily. “I beg your pardon, Mr. James, why are you here?” she said coldly, although her heart pounded and jumped so that she could scarce speak. “Sidney, Oh Sidney!” he cried, “can’t you, won’t you forgive and forget our little quarrel? It was all silly for us to part just because I disliked yourpicture. I’ve been miserable ever since.” The girl tapped her foot impatiently on the ground. “I have tried to forget you,” he went on slowly, “and I thought I could at first, but now—well, I shall never be able to. Oh, Sidney!” he pleaded, “please say that you don’t hate me!” She shut her lips tight and deliberately turned her back. “Very well,” he said bitterly and his voice sounded harsh and dull to Sidney, “I shan’t bother you any longer, goodby!” He turned abruptly and started toward the path. Slowly she turned around and now the haughtiness and pride were gone from her face. “Marion!” she cried as she stretched her arms toward the retreating figure of the man. “Marion!” With a glad cry he was beside her. “I—I don’t hate you,” she sobbed. “Thank Heaven, Sidney,” he said softly as he kissed her, “but if you don’t hate me,” he added playfully, “what do you think of me?” “I love you,” she answered bravely, looking up into his face. “Pa,” said Mrs. Holden that evening, “ain’t y’u glad y'u put that piece in th’ paper?” “I sure am, mother,” answered her husband as he watched Sidney and Marion stroll down the little path that led to the woods.Many children are so crammed with everything, says Everybody’s that they really know nothing. In proof of this, read these veritable specimens of definitions written by public school children: “Stability is taking care of a stable.” “ A mosquito is the child of black and white parents.” “Toxin has something to do with getting drunk.” “Expostulation is to have the smallpox.” “Cannibal is two brothers who killed each other in the Bible.” “Anatomy is the human body, which consists of three parts, the head, the chest, and the stummick. The head contains the eyes and brain, if any. The chest contains the lungs and a piece of the liver.

The man or woman who is ready to get the good position—the job seeks him. The one who is not prepared has to hunt the job, and the place he gets is likely an inferior one. If you have not decided on a vocation, do so now. If you desire some help in deciding, the President of the Tri-State College will assist you. If you have decided, let the Tri-State Collega train you. There is always a demand for Teachers in the Grades and High Schools. Our Normal Department is our Special pride. It can give you the best. The head of this department is from Teacher’s College, Columbia University. This work is given every term. The technical world is asking for trained Chemists and Engineers. Tri-State College can make you a Civil, Electrical, Mechanical or Chemical Engineer in two years, so that you can do actual Engineering work. Our Pharmacy Graduates have never failed at the State Examinations. That’s the best proof of our efficiency. We offer the best instruction in Bookkeeping, Typewriting, Shorthand and all Commercial Subjects. The Principal of this department has a call for all students this summer who are capable of keeping a set of books. This proves that there is Opportunity in this line of work. We want especially to recommend our course in Public School Music and Drawing. We could place many more graduates in good positions. We can’t fill the demand for teachers of music and drawing. Piano, Voice and Elocution for those who want this kind of instruction, and we commend the quality of this work. Let the President send you detailed information.
