The worst is surely beyond a doubt-

Your secret follies, your private sins,
Your habitual method of using pins,
All iind themselves on the road to fame,
Weaving laurels around your name-
When you room with a Hun-editor.

Nor sought among the peers to rank,
But now, alas, Fame's come my way
And seeks to iinmortalize all that I say.

A full college generation has passed since Boston 'University's
"Annual," the "Hun," has appeared to gladden the hearts of the
students-perhaps excepting those few who have had the linancial
responsibility of the publication g for four years the t' Hui: " has been
only a tradition, and prophets and carping critics have assured us that
no other "Hui: " would ever appear. So long as there were among us
some of the former generation who had assisted in the last sad rites
of the tt l1UIl " of i96, the frequent sight of their sombre garb of
mourning proved an effective damper upon any little sparks of en-
thusiasm which were dormant in student breasts 3 but with the advent
of the Century Class there came to Boston University a body of
students so filled with enthusiasm that the tales of past failures served
only to arouse ambition, and this ambition has not stopped short of
attempting to revive the glory of the past, our long dormant " HUM."
We hope, however, that we have learned wholesome lessons from the
experience of our predecessors, and we have therefore been content
with a more modest volume than we might otherwise have desired,
but one which we hope will prove a pleasing memento of our college
life -- a memento which will leave no bitterness behind it.
None can realize the imperfections of our completed labors more
than we, who have worked so lovingly upon itg and we might offer
many an apology for these imperfections, but we prefer to leave them
all to the generosity of our friends. Yet we would remind any who
may be inclined to criticize that all our work has had to be done in
haste, for the " CENTURV Hun" is the production of only one short
term's work. We feel that we have learned many things, and could
we now begin anew, we should hope to produce a better book, but
that cannot be, and as it is we offer it to our readers.
The ff Hun" is published by the junior Class of the College of
Liberal Arts of Boston Universityq we have not confined attention to
our own class, but we have kept within the College of Liberal Arts,
feeling that we could not do justice to the other departments of the
Just a word about the " grinds." Custom has decreed that every
college annual should contain more or less of these good-natured
roasts, and we have thought it well to follow this decree, but we wish
to emphasize the adjective, and we hope the good nature of each
" roast " will be apparent. Should, however, any victim feel inclined
to take offence and to seek revenge, we here give public notice that
each member of the board will go armed for the remainder of the
college course, and will not hesitate to defend himself or herself
against any attack.
We wish to acknowledge our obligation to all who have assisted
us in the work, especially to the several members of the faculty who
have taken so much interest in the " HUB g" and to our artists, Mr.
D. N. Handy, l99, Miss Everett and Mr. Wheeler, 1900, and Mr. J.
H. Scott, 1902. We do not need to commend their work, for it speaks
for itself. We are also under obligation to many members of the
college for articles which appear in various departments of the volume,
and to them all we return most hearty thanks.
With this salutatory we welcome our readers and wish them all
pleasure in their perusal of the " Cl4:N'l'URv HUB."

It was the weary Editor who sit with feelings blue,
As she gloomily drew from statistics piled high
And said to herself with il heart-rending sigh,
While she tightened the towel just over her eye,
" Here's :mother man to do! "
Franklin Lancelot Adams arrived at An-
gelville, N. Y., on April 9th, 18765 space pre-
vents the gazetting of the numerous towns
which have had the pleasure of entertaining him
thus far. He has finally landed in Ashburn--
ham. Cannot definitely trace his ancestry
farther than his grand-parents, but believes his
earliest relatives belonged to the ill-bred hordes-
who made it so unpleasant for the Celts in.
Ireland in early history.
Elsie Mabelle Albee was ushered into the
pleasures of this vain world in Hopkinton,
Mass., upon a date which she evidently thinks
better left unsaid, as it is not revealed within
the statistical responsesg her ancestry is trace-
able to 1641, but unfortunately for our interest,
place, reason and person are veiled in mystery.
Miss A. is reserved by nature and resents pub-
licity. Hopkinton High.
Bertram Allen Albro iirst favored the.
world with his presence in Portsmouth, R. I.,
on November zo, 1877, just in time for the
Thanksgiving dinnerg since that occasion he:
has wasted his talents in E. Greenwich, R. I.,
Sterling and Mendon, Mass., and at present
lives in Milfordg he traces his ancestry through,
nine generations, thence by a running high
jump makes connections with the anthropoicl
ape. Milford High.

Annie Field Archibald Hrst became im-
pressed with A. lf'. A., in Methuen, Mass., July
2nd, 1876. She acquired her nervous temper-
ament and marked distaste for noise two days
later. She has 'fnever looked into the matter"
of her ancestry. From a person of such an
investigating turn of mind this sounds peculiar.
Still peculiarity is the penalty of genius. Wal-
nut Hill School for girls.
Lucretia Berry. Born December 4, 1877,
in West Harwichg she has since lived wherever
she happened to be at the time. Her pre-
collegiate experiences are so thrilling that the
editor is unhappily restrained from publishing
them for fear of wrecking the nerves of some
gentle reader. She is fond of literature, pref-
erably " Puck 'i and " The Duchess." Chelsea
Lydia Blanchard. The infant of xgoo was
born in 1880, in East Lexington, Mass. l-ler
present home is in Arlington. Being on the
anxious seat lest her name be bandied about too
freely by the wicked editors of the Hun, she
handed in no answers to the statistical ques-
tions. She will here learn that danger is never
avoided by neglect. She will be wiser as her
Clara Lucena Buswell entered sedately
into the family circle in West Windsor, Vt., in
the year 1874, and has walked thusly through
life since that time. Her Quaker descent is
manifested in her calm, serene bearing at all
times save when she "shows off" in elocution.
She prepared at the St. johnsbury Academy
in Vermont, and has already taught. Her
present home is in Littleton, N. H.
Minne Ladd Butland first acquired pro-
liciency in digesting courses in Boston, Mass.,
which accounts for her calm, cool manner, she
comes from the old settlers, claiming an origi-
nal Bostonian as a distinguished ancestor. She
is a graduate of Framingham Normal, and has
already wielded the rod for several years over
seekers after knowledge. Prepared at Lowell
Annie Belle Carnes, first received by an
adoring family july 5, 1876, in Saugus, Mass.
Her fear of lire-crackers prevented her being
patriotic enough to arrive one day earlier.
Pressing presidential duties have prevented the
tracing of her distinguished ancestry, under
her administration 1900 undertook several
mighty tasks, the most magnificent of which
our modesty prevents mention. Prepared at
Saugus and Malden High Schools.
Harry' Bryant Center. Born February 16,
1877. His great amount of brain tissue is
explained by his birthplace, Gloucester, Mass.
lfle has been spared the bother of tracing his
ancestry as "some kind friends have traced it
to Ananiasf' We are not permitted to share
the secrets of his pre-collegiate experiences, as
he says "a witness is not obliged to give evi-
dence that would incriminate himself." Pre-
pared at Gloucester High.
Minnie Sheffield Chapin was born in
Nashville, 'l'enn.,on August zist, 1876. From
here she was requested to Hallez-vous-en" as
the training of her vocal chords disturbed the
populace. Chelsea, Mass., now allows her to
exercise said chords as she will. ller ancestry
is traceable for seven generations, she says 5 her
favorite amusements are " cutting Spanish "
and shopping at Woodward's. Chelsea High.
Raymond Gilmore Clapp. Born in Chel-
sea, Mass., on May 9th, l879Q at present he
claims South Boston as his local habitation.
Traces his ancestry to Roger Clap, one of the
company that settled Dorchester, in 16305
patriotically says " 1900 is O. K." He skipped
the last year of his preparatory work at B. L. S.
and prepared the remainder alone, entering
college a year ahead of his prep. school class.
Thcodora White Clapp received with a
Hobsonian welcome in Boston, January zoth,
1879 g in this atmosphere she has since lived,
so she must be excused for many of her slight
delinquencies.. She traces her ancestry to
Chaucer, from whom she inherited " the thirst
for knowledge " that impelled her to these
classic hallsg her pre-collegiate life was tt simply
the life of a Boston school-girl, with summer
outings at Mt. Desert and the Adirondacks."
Girls Latin School.
Josephine May Clark sprang from the
forehead of jove, Greek lexicon in hand, in
Randolph, Vt., October 14th, I877Q since this
wonderful proceeding she has lived 'fin the
state of perfect bliss." Traces her ancestry
to "the missing link." She comes to college
"to learn how to appear distinguished." The
great wisdom which she magnanimously dis-
plays in quiz ordeals has earned for her the
sobriquet " Minerva." Somerville High.
Estelle Marcy Cobb, and her twin sister,
Sleep, came into the world November roth,
1874, in Cambridge, Mass. At present they
reside at Newton Highlands. She traces her
ancestry to john Alden, Qwho. we believe, was
once caught nappingj and still farther to Gun-
dred, daughter of William the Conqueror.
Miss C. is still occupied with her great work,
"Why I am Sure Bacon Wrote Shakespeare's
Plays." Newton High.
Wilbur Alden Coit brought renown to
Syracuse, by being born there July 25th, 1876,
has lived "in several states." Claims john
Alden as a distinguished ancestor. His note-
book of reminiscences being unavailable Mr. C.
is unable to give to us the edifying account of
his pre-collegiate experience. He doubtless
holds it in abeyance for his autobiography.
Mr. C. is the author of that immortal work,
" The Way to Win a Woman." Chauncy Hall.
May Estelle Conant conferred honor upon
greater New York by stopping OE at Brooklyn,
September 28, 1877. Since this joyous event
she has lived in Providence, R. I., and Boston,
Mass. If her work for the Hub did not demand
so much of her attention she could lind time
to trace her noble line, which runs back to
Neolithic man without any break. Providence
Alpha Royal Curl. The bearer of this
name Hrst saw the light of clay in No. Charles-
town, N. H., September Ist, 1877, since then
he has assisted in ministering to the spiritual
needs of Antrim, Littleton, Claremont, Somers-
worth, and a few more New Hampshire and
Vermont towns which we would like to enum-
erate but are forbidden by space limitation.
He was Class President in '98. Concord High.
Esther Mary Dacey. Born April 18, 1878,
in Lexington, Mass., where she has since lived
by request of the Town Improvement Society.
Traces her ancestry through numberless vol-
umes. She is endowed with that timorous-
nature that dreadeth the Hunk, and comes to
college to get as high marks as Lydia M. B.
She enigmatically states that B. U. needs most,
"a new Spring suit", this discloses the idea
uppermost in her heart. Lexington High.
James Davies began his singing in 1873,
in Stockport, England. In tender youth he
came to the new world to seek his fortuneand
lived some time in Canada, he tells woeful
tales of Indian fights and hair-breadth escapes
'while in that country. Fortune led him on to-
the land of liberty and pie, and he reached B.
U. via Wilbraham. '
Daniel Clark Dorchester. The intricate
mental mechanism of this wonder began to
work April 17, 1876, in Groton, Vermont. He
has since cultivated a desire to be heard which
he humors on all public occasions, always
giving the opposing side an incalculable aid.
He is fond of eating, especially delighting in
mince-pieftyj. His present home is Pitts-
Anna lVIacKasson Durkin sang her lirst
note in high C in the " Quaker City," April 25,
1877. Her distinguishing specific difference
is a fascinating twinkle in her eye, which it is
useless to try to imitate. We deem it our duty
to warn the public, knowing that not even
Quaker ancestry and training are sufficient to
offset the danger arising from the possession
of such a charm. Lexington High.
Thomas John Elliott. This famous per-
sonage honored Catasanqua, Pa., by being
born there on a date he prefers not to shed the
light of publicity upon. His lung capacity is
simply marvelous, and he is wonderfully adept
in the art of talking at length without using
his brains. His humanitarian proclivities are
disclosed by his expansive smile. Hacketts-
town, N. J., Seminary.
Edith Everett arrived with proper elegance
upon the scene, in Manchester, N. H., in the
Year of Our Lord, 1875. Since this important
event she has lived in Lowell and Boston.
Ingenuously traces her ancestry -" to ze monkey
avec ze swingtailf' Her versatility is .l'fIqJc'll'
Iflilld' as the Stage Cof Jacob Sleeperj, the Arts
CHub Q, Literature QBeacon j, all bear witness.
Was tutored in preparation for college.
Ethel Daisy Fisher blushed her iirst blush
at Philadelphia, Pa., March 4th, 1877. Since
this mortifying episode she has lived in Chel-
sea, Mass. Here her biography must come to
a halt, for at this point in her answers to the
questions propounded she was either overcome
with inertia or indisposed to let the public into
her secret thoughts. So we draw the curtain.
Harriet May Fisk found her nerves on
April 4th, 1874, in Graniteville, Mass. Since
this pleasing event ten towns have claimed her
as a resident as long as the Conference saw
tit. She comes to B. U. 'tto look after my
small brother " and is earnestly trying by con-
tinued study to reach the vanishing point.
Helen Lincoln Follansbee began to devel-
op the dignified demeanor which character-
izes her at the present, in Gloucester, Mass.,
july roth, IS74. Her ancestors are traceable
to "Revolutionary Times," but she neglects
to state whether England, France or America,
was the troubled scene. She was taught in
the High Schools of Danvers and Quincy,
Mass. Gloucester High.
Jennie Young Freeman blew in to Pro-
vincetown, Cape Cod, in 1879, where she has
since lived. In this town is situated the
famous " jumping-off place." At an early age,
Miss F. was caught measuring the distance of
the jump. Such genius for " Math " could not
be wasted, so she was immediately prepared
for B. U. She says HB. U. needs money
enough to buy the square whereon C. L. A.
Bldg. stands, and to move the other buildings
Iames Monroe Gage entered the world
May 19, x877, in Athol, Mass., which is still
his home, despite the allurements with which
other places have tried to attract him. He
was iirst president of the Century Class, and
has been college book-seller since 1897. Is
preparing for the ministry.
Emma Martha George began her critical
career in New Ipswich, N.H., Nov. 12, 1869.
Traces her ancestry to that overwhelming
number of voyagers who landed from the May-
flower, in 162o. I-Ier characteristic reason for
coming to college is 'L to learn and learn, but
act not what I know." She has already taught
for some time and intends LO do so when she
receives her degree.
Mabel Tristine Griffin started the course
of events that led her into B. U. in 1875.
Traces her ancestors even into the primeval
protoplasm. This desire to be a sister to us
all is gratifying, and shows her B. U. training.
Her generous nature is still further mani-
fested by the remembrance of her martyrdom
in the Freshman play of igoo, enacted in '96.
Frances Estelle Hall began to prescribe in
Wellington, Shropshire, Eng., Aug. 16, 1877.
She has since pursued her practise in nine
different cities of New jersey. She now dis-
penses blessings in Boston, Mass. Traces
her ancestry to "Revolutionary Times," but
leaves us in darkness as to who revolved. She
came to B. U. because of its brilliant, co-edu-
cational advantages. Prepared for college at
most of the New Jersey High Schools.
Ernest Alfred Hamilton started the be-
ginnings of his auspicious career in Groton,
Vt., on Feb. 26, ,77. He refrained magnani-
mously from starting these beginnings four
days earlier as he did not wish to incur the
displeasure of G. W. Traces his ancestry
" four generations back." Prefers " Smith next
to B. U." but neglects to state why. St. johns-
Grace Webster Heartz began to aspire to
her present high status March 12, 1878, in
Woburn, Mass. At an early age her parents
placed a German dictionary upon her head for
a few hours every day to retard her flight up-
ward, but as this proved unavailing, she was
sent to B. U.-- to be taken down a peg or
two. She lays claim to the original inhabi-
tants of the Heartz Mts. as distinguished
relatives. Woburn High. .
Lillian June Hopkins was born in Ber-
wick, Me., on June 26, 1877. Her first Ameri-
can ancestor, a babe of six months, when he
came over in the Mayflower, began at that
early age to count his toes and "Math" has
been the great accomplishment of the family
ever since. She can inflect zlzigf, noun and verb
in UM ways, ask her to do it. Somers-
worth, N.H. High School.
Frances Warren Jones Hrst opened her
dangerous eyes in Norwich, Conn., in August,
'78, She uses them at present mostly in New-
tonville, Mass. In regard to ancestry tracing,
she says, she 4' has'nt the least idea about it.',
However, her evasive answers disclose her
near relationship to Eve. As to honors she
modestly says, "the space allotecl is inade-
quate for a satisfactory enumeration." New-
ton High. ,
Maro Baath Jones. The wheels of this
marvel began to revolve in Harwich, Mass., on
July 30, 1875, where they have since rotated.
He was hailed with joy by 1900, as a legacy
from '99. Mr. J. left ,99 ostensibly to teach
in Oak Grove Seminary, Vassalboro, Me.,
really so that he might graduate with our
frifted class. Came to li. U. " on account of
its good reputation.
John Edwin Lacount increased the census
report of the year 1873, by appearing in said
year on july 26, in W. Somerville, which town
still claims the honor of his residence. He
spent four years after graduating from his
prep. school, learning the factory business with
john Holman N Co., entering B. U. in time
to escape the ignominy of non-membership in
xgoo. 'f Finally, brethren," is his favorite
Laura Smith Leavitt began to be method-
ical May 22, 1874, in Ayer, Mass., since
which her time was been principally occupied
with catching trains. She is not well informed
concerning the lordly heads of the House of
Leavittg however, she is sure of two. Tales of

Mabel Frances Moore entered the family
circle in Cambridge, Mass., Feb. zoth, 1877.
Like a certain other maiden, famous in litera-
ture, she says, she has "no ancestry." This
weighs heavily upon her soul and accounts for
her habitual gloom. She pessimistically says

Lyra Dale Trueblood first cried for Cas-
toria on Sept. 23, 1877, at Wilmington, Ohio.
Since that trying episode she has lived in wild

the family tree appeared on June 30, 1880, in
Needham, Mass., where she has since lived.
Her ancestry is traceable for two hundred

Either from distrust or laziness, Mr. W. has
neglected to pass in his answers to the ques-

from a well-known authority. Mr. W. is said
to be fond of his own voice, so fond that he
keeps it to himself most of the time. He is
therefore in great demand.
Marguerite Atkins Willey began to set
a good example, August 7, 1878, in New York
City. She finds the beginnings of her family

B. U. because: " Boston is the centre of
learning and B. U. is the centre of Boston."

Alice Woodvine. The date that most in-
Huenced the life of this friiulein fell on Nov. 3,
1876. She has always lived in Boston, Mass.

HERE is of course no longer any doubt as to which class in
B. U. is the most alive, the most earnest and the most pro-
gressive. Our own opinions of ourself are unanimous:--
" 19oo is the correct class to leave a favorable impression of
this century" QCarnesjg 'fthe best class B. U. has, has had or will
have "QTwiggjg " APIETOE "QSwainjg "sine culpa"QHalljg H1900

only lump of sugar in the coffee cup " QNoble Q. Quoted from such
authorities this must be so.
We number seventy-six. 95 per cent. of this number prepared for
college in the public high schools. The remaining portion came from
private schools or private study. Thirteen have already taught.
The votes for our favorite study were scattering. Latin and
Mathematics lead with the same number of votes, German comes next.
Only one prefers "snaps" and U human nature" is the favorite study
The opinions of B. U's greatest need come very nearly being
unanimous in this respect: after stating his or her pet grievance
nearly everyone has tacked on 'fand more men." These are the
chief crying needs: Ha law prohibiting the springing of quizzes with-
out proper notice 5" Hadvertisingg " 'fmore college and less fraternity

Twenty-four of us took honors in our preparatory school workg
the rest would have done so but "no honors were conferred on any-
body." The colleges that we prefer next to B. U. are as many as
there are people in the class. The feminine portion preferring col-
leges for men only, and the masculine portion has innate longings for
the impossible Smith and Vassar.
Fifty-two are working for the A. B. degreeg twelve for the Ph. B.
and four for none. One aspiring soul is toiling "for the unattain-
able." The glory of a Ph. D. appeals to Miss Hall, Mr. Lord and
Mr. Smiley, who express their intention of studying for it.
In the vote for the hardest course Prof. Warren's courses carry
off most of the votes in an overwhelming way, only ten voting for
other subjects. Other courses that are diflicult are: "the course from
the front door to the Observatory H Qlfiskjg 'tthe course of the due
collectorn Qlireemanjg "the one from my seat to the platform in
Oratory " CNoblejg "course at Babb's" QMoulton Q.

Our most pleasant collegiate sensations are aroused by "the

j-listory of '99,
f hif CAN see them now, those fellow-class-mates of mine,
at as they sat, already in the thrall of our Senior Pro-
f il fessor, taking their entrance examinations. Very
i "fl juvenile indeed they must have looked, the girls
with pig-tails, the boys with turn-over collars and
flaring ties. I stood outside the door, lost in contemplation, when
the first note of Sophomore hostilities sounded in my ears. Two
curious faces joined mine in the door-vvay and I heard a mocking voice
quote that indispensable bit:
" This life were but a weary scene,
Without such little spots of green."
followed by a mischievous declaration that " pig-tails and plaid
neckties are public property." Having thus oracularly delivered
themselves, the pair departed.
Nevertheless, with a full sense of its importance, the Class of ,QQ
entered unabashed and registered eighty members. The recollection
of that first step over the threshhold of Boston University is still vivid.
The majority of us followed in the wake of some older and conse-
quential person on through the crowd that filled the hall, stairways
and chapel. Once safely seated in Jacob Sleeper, we got our bear-
ings, and proceeded to divide our attention between the Professor who
delivered the opening address, and certain students of fancied trucu-
lent demeanor whom we forthwith labelled Sophomores. The address
over, our protection forsook us and we shifted for ourselves, formed
our first friendships and drew for lockers. We fell a prey to, frater-
nities imlnediately, were smothered with attentions and coddled until
our mental equilibrium was sadly endangered.
That first week was truly a nightmare. We were obliged to be
over cautious lest we be snared by Sophomore sophistry, and con-
sequently we found ourselves more than once bristling up belligerently
in the face of junior benevolence, or even at the approach of a class-
mate as innocent as ourselves. But in the struggle to hold our lirst
class meeting, we got class relations at least, clearly adjusted and after
an intrepid ejection of Sophomores great and small, we organized,
elected otiicers and chose a motto, yell and color. liven thus, early
there was manifested the exceeding fondness for Parliamentaryli, Law
which has always characterized the class.
Our formal welcome to college came from the juniors. On the
evening of October eleventh, we sat at their feet, ate vast quantities of
ice-cream and received pledges of their unfailing protection. Soon
after we treated ourselves to a right royal social, levying a phenom-
enally heavy assessment upon the class in order to do so. The dose
was manifestly too severe, for it is a generally accepted truth that
from this early extravagance dates the utter impecuniosity for which
we have since been noted. We carried through our Freshmen Philo-
mathean with vigor and aplomb, regardless of disconcerting stage
directions, lloral tributes, distinctly of cabbage aliinity, and showers
of peanuts alternating with pop-corn from the body of the house.
Only, we hid all these things and pondered them in our hearts. For
every stripe we received we laid up two for the luckless Freshmen to-
be. It was not until April 24, moreover, that the Sophomores extended
to us the hand of fellowship, the handle of the hatchet, and the pipe of
peace. We accepted them all gladly and in accordance with the
usual custom expressed our appreciation thereof by another exchange
of courtesies early in May.
The next year found us Sophomores, unusually well endowed
with all the necessary traits, even to the proverbial strut. The Fresh-
men proved unusually intractable, and it was only after they took
from us both Cane Rush and Ball Game, that we fully awoke to the
enormity of it all. We gathered our energies for the Freshman Philo-
mathean. Now it had been significantly intimated to us that mag-
nanimity on our part toward the coming histrionic effort would be
appreciated by the Faculty as establishing a precedent to counteract
the growing evil attendant upon the inter-class hostilities. But the
streaks of the sub-rationals were too deeply engraved and we would
not heed. We confiscated the stage curtains, we gathered in from
far and wide alarm-clocks, fire-bells, flour-bags, a phonograph-
all, in fact, that could make the afternoon hideous. The performance
fully justified its name, " A Cyclone for a Cent," and we went home
not triumphant, but humiliated. Our repentance proved lasting and
we effected a Sophomore-Freshman reconciliation at an earlier date
than was ever known before in the history of the College. Still,
however, we were under heavy obligations, socially, to the Senior Class
for favors both past and present. Accordingly, on the twenty-ninth
of May, we cancelled our debt, but, it must be confessed, in our own
traditional impecunious fashion. We did not invite them to an out-
of-door fete at The Lees GQ in Auburndale, as precedent demanded,
but to a modest lunch and a day on the river. We ate the lunch ap-
preciatively ourselves, and embarked happily upon the Charles, but
we never really knew whether the Seniors did or not.
It was in May of this year that our Class Circle was broken for-
ever by the death of William Allanson Ruston. He was universally
liked and we mourned for him sorely.
The next September saw us Juniors and our Sophomoric trucu-
lence had merged into a leaning benevolence toward the down-trodden.
We welcomed 1901 in the usual junior fashion, and lent ourselves
to the usual good offices. At the breaking-up of the Freshman class-
meeting, we stood by encouragingly, pledged to the Freshman sup-
port and ready to lend a helping hand. But great was our horror
when one of our new protegees swaggered up to a supposed Sopho-
more and, emboldened by his peaceable air, threatened to throw him
down stairs l And all the consolation which the Junior Class could
muster an zmzi-.ra was inadequate when the luckless one found out Qas
he speedily didj, that the insulted Sophomore was no other than Prof.
B. on his way to conduct a class.
As Juniors the initiative in the College Social fell to us, and the
Illustrated Magazine which we envolved, resulted not only in enjoy-
ment unalloyed for the audience, but in a substantial addition to the
Magazine Fund. Indeed, in every good work we were active, we
procured for the " Beacon " its present cosy little officeg in the spring
we attended faithfully every mustering out of troops, and several of
our number enlisted. In all save in the publication of a "HUB,"
we shone refulgent in the public eye. But the ghosts of the past
squelched the ,QQ " HUB " in embryo.
The Fall of ,99 found us Seniors at last, ffgrave and thesis-
haunted," oppressed at the first step with ff last things " and a fore-
taste of the proverbial Senior sadness. Yet we grew graver and
wiser as morning after morning we mounted up to 25. After a De-
claration of Independence that rivalled that of our ancestors, we
learned not to assert our rights Qinalienable, it is truej to the high
places in the synagogue. We found prudence the better part of valor
and we screened ourselves behind the theological bulwarks, preferring
to be less conspicuous and out of range.
So the Chronicle of ,QQ comes to an end. Regretfully we close
the narrative and turn from the retrospect. The four years have been
brimfull of happiness and blessing for us all. Here we have been
helped to lay the foundations of all we hope to beg here our lives have
received direction, inspiration and impetus 4 and here we have made our
truest friendships. To our honored professors, then, we return
heartiest thanks for their loving service, and to our dear old Alma
Mater our unswerving loyalty forever.

B. U. Century! Rah, rah, rah!
C0101-.v.--Green and White.
Qi-ligtfvlfiy of the Cientuijy Glagg.
NCIC upon a time, a band of trembling youth entered the
portals of Boston University for better or for worse. lt
would be hard to recognize in that number the coming
B. U. Century Class in all its dignity and prestige, but
"great oaks from little acorns grow," and so it hap-
pened in this instance, that the germ which was even then present in
the childish breasts of the assembled number began at once to sprout,
and at last bud and blossom into the present junior Class. Nowi we
possess undisturbed happiness, quiet equanimity, and a calm con-
tempt of the trivial troubles of life, which, perchance, trouble other
college mates, while then, we had in our deepest souls, if not on our
faces, an apologetic, half-fearful and trying-to-bear-up air, with a wish
to be quite unobtrusive and propitiate those terrible monsters -- the
Scyllas of whom we had heard.
llumility may sometimes have t' genius, power and magic in it,"
but in our case either the humility was not genuine or the Sopho-
mores were dillicult customers with which to deal, for they met us at
every turn, with their benign manner and their desire to direct us to
our trystiug places. They assured us- not without some qualms
of conscience, we trust- that the Catacombs led directly from Jacob
Sleeper Hall, and that Chapel was immediately beyond, while the
next group of which we inquired, said with kind and helpful expres-
sions--we felt sure they must be Seniors-that the Catacombs joined
New Convocation Hall and the dining restaurant. But we wondered
not at their want of knowledge, for it was beyond even our compre-
hension to grasp that fearfully and wonderfully made labyrinth.
Our tirst class meeting was a success from start to finish. The
Sophomores came, saw, and fled, as they did from the cane rush, also.
It was at about this stage of our ca1'eer that we began to know
our true friends, theijuniors. How true it is, as Addison has it, that
tt Great souls by instinct to each other turn,
Demand alliance, and in friendship burn."
We had a a very tangible pledge of their affection at the reception
tendered us October eighth and our lirst fete within the walls of our
coming Alma Mater was one of great success and real enjoyment.
It would be interesting but not feasible to detail all the happen-
ings of this Freshman year, the successful Philomathean play, the
attempts on the part of the Sophomores to " make up " and be un-
dying friends, the memorable " Klatsch Collegium," where the galaxy
of beauty, light and music again upset our mental equilibrium which
we thought by this time had become eternally settled. We realized
then the full meaning of the threat contained in those bloody placards
of the past : " No initiation, no Klatschf'
Thus ended our first year of B. U. life, a year which had been
filled to the brim with many helpful experiences which were to make
a firm foundation for coming days. During the summer months
many were the happy thoughts of the past year and anticipations of
the year to come, when we were to win laurels as ff Saucy Sophomores
-the wise fools."
ln the fall of ,97 we returned with hearts eager to assist in some
way the "naughty-ones," even as we had been helped by the now
sedate juniors. We proved ourselves invaluable to them within the
first few days. They simply could not-or at least did not-- get along
without us, Cnor with usj. Our busy efforts at entertaining culmin-
ated in one grand attempt on an afternoon in December.
The Freshmen, however, were not pleased either with our unique
green programmes, furnished entirely free, or with our entertainment
of the audience, previous to the histrionic display. We were rather
disappointed and mystified at this lack of appreciation, but tried to
bear it as best we might. But there are even deeper mysteries con-
nected with this afternoon's performance, for example, where were
those curtains and numerous dress suit cases? We pause for a reply.
Once again we tried to win the esteem of the Freshmen at a recep-
tion. Seven young men of the class served on the committee as our
representatives, and covered themselves and us with glory. Even
the Freshmen changed their opinion of us, so we were content.
The year was brought to a pleasant close by the trip to River-
" Balmy breezes bore our barks
Beneath balconies and bridges,"
and the Seniors bade farewell to the pleasures of these happiest days
of our lives.
The autumn of '98 found us again within the walls of fair B. U.,
and as Juniors, we felt we had much responsibility to assume. A
history of the junior year with no mention of the course in psycho-
logy, would be like the play of Hamlet with Hamlet left out. It
was here for the first time that the whole Century Class met together
in a recitation hall. Oh, how we wish that even now -so long after
the final test of our knowledge in that subject-we might bathe in
the sweet river Lethe or eat some of the renowned lotus, to banish
from our brains the memory of those anxious hours I
The usual programme of study, socials and receptions, large and
small, busied us till December, when a change in our behaviour
was noticed. The number of class meetings held bade fair to out-
rival those held concerning the Senior outing, and their size was un-
paralleled. The news that a " HUB " was to be published spread very
fast, as good news always does, and met with hearty enthusiasm from
all quarters. "Croakers" were conspicuous from the very iirst by
their absence. We need add no further comment on the " HUB? lt
speaks for itself.
In the midst of our course we have twice had occasion for deep
sorrow. Last year, on the morning of the twenty-first of january, we
received word of the death of Miss Atwood, and on March fifteenth,
of the death of Mr. Comey. Both of these students were well known
members of the class and college, and had the utmost respect of all
Such are our annals up to the present time. In the writing, we
have followed Pliny's precept that history should never overstep the
limits of truth, and that " in recording noble deeds, the truth is sufii-
cient." Never in its short life has the B. U. Century Class grasped
the full meaning of its motto: Hbzzzzzw' ,VCI-fL'l',,l as it does at the
present time, and it is our firm desire to continue to press onward
and upwards, being ever watchful that the " republic suffer no harm."

"6'omz' :mum in man or woman, fffar my Ianni, is Mc illzulediah'
jewel qf M.'1'rje1uul.v."
ES, we realize this since this jewel is denied us by outsiders,
for we are the most malignecl class in college. We have
been called the U naughty ones " since our first appearance,
somewhat endea1'ingly, I suppose, by the upper classmeng
and we have been called slow, with all forcible adjectives attached by
-well, never mind, we have buried the hatchet.
With all certainty we can refute the first statementg Qsimply
apply to individual membersj, and as to being slow-we have always
been noted for our truthfulness and veracity--this is more apt.
Especially among our larger members that law of Physics is well
illustrated which says that it takes a longer time to generate motion
in a large body than in a small one, but forgets to say anything
about what force this law has when it once goes into effect. There
is a deal of latent power in all of us.
But, honestly, how could we be unthoughtful, ungenerous or slow
when we have as a guiding star, as a light spot in the zenith of our
heavens, this motto: "IWW jim fmbllv, rua' tIfl'l.J',,f
The Freshmen are feeling happy over the Cane Rush, Ball Game
and Philomathean, nor does this greatly concern us since it is simply
a privilege for the entering class to be victorious, to be crowned with
the laurel, and this of course is freely granted by the Sophomores.
They have reached years of magnanimity and generosity and know
how happy it makes one feel to give rather than receive.
The Freshmen are petted and everything lovely is done for themg
but woe the day, when they enter on their second year. All their
loveliness and good intentions are questioned and misinterpreted.
llut, I believe that the future Sophomore is not to be so misjudged, so
shamefully treated, for there must be a radical change in his behavior.
In order that the Freshman Philomathean may be continued he must
of necessity take a back seat Qliterally and not in slang phraseologyj
and keep still.
Our class is not so large as when we first enteredg some have
been called away by pressing duties from outside, and one has been
taken by the Angel of Death.
Now, as we approach our junior year, we can truthfully say that
we are deeply thankful to those who directed our steps toward

History of i9o2.
HAT, gentle reader? A class so young C2111 have no his-
tory? Do you not recall the exploits of the infant
Herakles? Think you that in the Olympian annual of
that year, among the records of the loves and quarrels
of his seniors, space was not reserved for a brief history of this young
demigod? True, we have not been stealing cattle, but our little affairs
with the Second Years may well be likened to the serpent-strangling
act of this precocious infant.
On the twenty-second of September, 1898, a day ever memorable,
the members of the class of 1902 laid aside the dignity and responsi-
bility of High School Seniors, and became B. U. Freshmen. We
were not at all lacking in those traditional characteristics from which
our very name is derived, "the original life and vigor," as Webster
has it, or as the Standard defines it, 'fthe undiminished excellence
and unimpaired strength." But that we should instinctively know all
college customs was not to be expected, and so it is not unpardonable,
perhaps, that in those first days, we commonly mistook the important
looking QOQPOI MOPOI for Seniors, a blunder which, in the light of
subsequent acquaintances in the classroom, appears most ridiculous.
We spent many hours deciding which fraternity we would join,
only to find that for many of us the time was spent for naught, since
our decision was never asked for. The feminine majority was, however,
invited to join Gamma Delta-Ah! And they were initiated-Oh!
Our political history is a big improvement over that of Egypt,
since we have had but two dynasties, and then we have a vw1.vf1'l11!z'w1,
such as we are confident no body politic ever had before. Our wars
so far have been with a foe hardly worthy of our steel, and since even
the bare statement of the results of our various encounters might
seem like boasting, we refrain.
Much tl1e greater part of our course lies before us. We realize
that, as in the life-story of our friend I-lerakles, our infant struggles
merely hint at "labors " yet to be pe1'formed. To maintain our
present record, would be no unworthy object: to better it is our ideal.

Gb? Pl7llOSOPl2lGZl Qltlb, one of the oldest organizations
among the students of Boston University, has been in existence since
1886, Its first meetings were held under the direction of Professor
Bowne and its membership consisted of those especially interested in
philosophic questions. Until 1892 there were no ofiicers and the
Club was without constitution or by-laws, but in that year the Club
decided that a more formal organization would better carry out its
purposes and a constitution was accordingly drawn up. The plan of
the Club has been to select each year some philosophical subject for
study and discussion.
During the present year, Aesthetics has been taken up for the
second time in the Club's history. 'It has been treated with special
reference to Art and Architecture. Under the supervision of the Club's
advisor, Professor Warren, the members have been introduced to a
keen appreciation of the beautiful in Art and unusual interest has
been aroused in the Art treasures of this Athens of America.

GDC Pl7llOlOQlG2ll QSSOGlBlIlOl7 is an organization composed
of students Qprincipally girlsj, who are especially devoted to Latin,
Greek and 1. It was organized with an object of obtaining books
for a Philological Library. In its early years courses of entertain-
Inents and lectures were given, by means of which funds were procured
for establishing a very valuable library. A number of bequests have
been made from time to time by interested friends. There are now
about eight hundred and fifty books in the library, which all who have
paid the yearly assessment of fifty cents are entitled to use.

GHG Beacon Eiterary Qltllb was organized December 7, 1898,
and a constitution was then adopted which declared the object of the
Club to be interpretive and creative literary study. This platform
has been steadfastly and impartially adhered to in the work of the
Club, and weekly meetings have been held at which papers upon the
works of the past and contributions representing the equally sincere
effort of the present have had equal representation and have been
received with equal enthusiasm.
The field of study during the winter term has been the early
colonial period of American literature, and original stories presented
have taken their inspiration from the times and scenes of the regular
study papers. It is the intention of the Club to follow the study of
these early times with that of the revolutionary and subsequent periods
of American literary productions, eventually bringing the work down
to the present time.

was established in 1895. The membership is restricted to advanced
students who wish to do special work in economics. 'l'here is no
formal organizationg the work is planned and directed by Professor
Baldwin. The aim is twofold: to conduct investigations in fields
of economic study lying outside the scope of the regular courses,
and to give training in the preparation of original papers. The meet-
ings are held fortnightly. At each meeting a paper is read by one
of the membersg the subject of the paper is then discussed, and the
workmanship of the writer is criticised.

Y. fn. Q. fi.
HE Young merys Qtyristiary pssooiation work, which was
begun lifty years ago in England, has increased in influence
very rapidly in the last decade, especially among colleges and
academies. A college or other large educational institution
now, which does not support a live Y. M. C. A., is looked upon as
deficient in the equipment needed to develop men symmetrically.
A college without a Y. M. C. A. is either archaic or else criminally
ignorant of what is demanded at the present time for the completion
of a liberal education.
The College of Liberal Arts is neither archaic nor ignorant. The
Y. M. C. A., founded four years ago under the direction and advice
of john R. Mott and Robert E. Lewis, whose names are so widely
known among religious workers, has been from the first successful
in the work which it has endeavored to accomplish, the development
of men in the college along religious lines. Not the least important
of the causes which have brought about this result is the systematic
study of the Bible, which has now become a prominent feature in
the activities of the Association.
The attendance at the regular meetings of the Association is
increasing and the influence of these services continues to extend
among the men. The diiiiculties of the undertaking do not shake the
courage of the leaders and the power of the organization is bound to
increase as the membership has done.

llftl9 OUGI' UQFGG years ZQO, the young women of our college
felt that "amid the work and strain of courses and classroom
the culture of the heart was being neglected, and that the
spiritual life, which, as fundamental, should lend worth and
dignity to life as a whole, was in danger of becoming a secondary
thing. Accordingly, after much earnest and prayerful effort on the
part of a few, on November 15, 1895, the Y. W. C. A. of B. U. was
formally organized. The Association fought its way prayerfully
through all the difliculties of that year under the leadership of Miss
Almy Chase, '96, their iirst president. Their charter membership
Since that time the Association has grown steadily but quietly
and unostentatiously. Miss Lucy Whittier, Miss Elizabeth Upham
and Miss Florence Holbrook have carried on the work as Presidents
up to the present time.
A sunny upper room has been given over by the faculty to the
Association for- their exclusive use, and through the kindness of Presi-
dent Warren and the two lady members of the faculty added to the
united efforts of the members, the room has been tastefully furnished.
During the first year the weekly meetings were held for a short
half-hour Friday noon, but an hour has been regularly set apart for
the meeting on Friday afternoon, from two to three, when all recita-
tions for the week are over. Workers from outside now and then
address these meetings, and two or three times a year union meetings
with the Y. M. C. A. are held.
ln welcoming new students the Association does an invaluable
work. Letters are written during the Summer months to those who
are registered to enter in the Fall, and those who are strangers are
often met and welcomed by someone delegated for that purpose. An
information bureau is open for the first few days of college in the
girls' study, and the horarium, so puzzling to freshmen, is patiently
interpreted by members who are on duty to render any possible
The second day of college, a welcome reception is given by the
two Christian Associations to the freshmen, and earnest effort is
made at those times to get these new-comers acquainted, and to make
them feel a little less strange in their new surroundings.

Glye mlSSlOl7Bl'y SOGlGty of lloston 'University College of
Liberal Arts was organized May 9, 1894. Its object is "to maintain
among its members a sober and sustained enthusiasm in the system-
atic study of both foreign and home missions and in aggressive mis-
sionary work, also to bring the College into sympathetic touch with
that spirit which is to-day uniting both religious and educational
forces in one united effort to evangelize the worldf'
To this end the work of home and foreign missions has been
presented to the society by missionaries themselves, as well as by
ministers of neighboring churches.
During the last two years, the Y. M. C. A., Y. W. C. A. and the
Missionary Society have united their gifts under the name of the
lloston University Missionary Enterprise. The results of the move-
ment have been a gift of S146 to Miss Maude Croucher, B. U. lgs,
now a missionary in China, and Sroo pledged for the support of
native workers in various parts of the foreign field.
mission Study Qlass.
This is a class of Christian students organized for the purpose
of studying missionary fields, activities and problems. A course of
studies for the college year is arranged by the Educational Secretary
of the Student Volunteer Movement, and inexpensive, tho' valuable,
text-books are published by the Movement. The course varies from
year to year, and the studies for the three terms of the year are not
necessarilly connected. The aim of the Class is to supply the need
of clelinite missionary intelligence and to inspire greater activity in
behalf of missions.
As the B. U. Y. M. C. A. is but a young organization, it is to be
supposed that the Bible Study Department is also in its initial stage.
At present there are three bible classes conducted by students. There
are, however, only two courses of study, but this number will be aug-
mented in each of the two coming years by an additional course,
making four in all. These courses of study consist of outlines direct-
ing the student so that he may work most successfully. They are
prepared by able men, who know well what is necessary to interest
and prolit the student body. ,
Of our Y. M. C. A. members forty-live are now following the
line of study provided, and are dist1'ibuted in classes as follows:--
H Studies in the Life of Christf'-H. B. SHARMAN.
Leader, J. W. ANNAS. I7 Members.

GDQ Bible Study l.UOl'K is underthe leadership of Miss Mary
May of the Gordon Training School, and Miss Elisabeth Upham,
B. U. '98. Miss Mayls classes have been studies in Matthew and
studies in Genesis, the former course running through the year.
Under Miss Upham, the work has been divided as follows : fall term,
" Women of the Bible," for the Freshmen g White's "Studies in the
Gospel of John," for the Juniors and Seniorsg winter term, " Women
of the Bible," " Studies in john," t'Old Testament Character Studies,"
QAbraham, Moses, joshuaj g spring term, ff Women of the Biblef' Qtwo
classesj, U studies in John," " How Christ was a friend to different
people," " The Life of Christ,"-this last course in connection with
some of the great paintings illustrating the life of Christ in art. The
work is helpful and fascinating, and there is a growing demand for
classes. About forty-three girls have been engaged in the work
this college year.

HE editors of the ft Hun," feeling that it was necessary to have
some safe refuge for themselves after the publication date,
have had a representative in Egypt searching among the
tombs of the Pharaoh's for such a refuge. In his search our repre-

a marble slab, an engraving of which we here reproduce for. our

readers. On the wall under the slab was an inscription in hierogly-
phics of the third dynasty, stating that the slab was a relic of an
ancient civilization. It is an allegorical picture representing the
pursuit of knowledge and is part of a panel from the college of the
most learned prophet priest, Wahreno. It shows representatives of
the four classes of students of that ancient time toiling up the steep
road of knowledge in pursuit of Success, which ever flutters elusively

Um sich gut Deutsch ordentlich anzueignen ist es ratsam vor
allen Dingen nicht auf die Konstruktion zu sehr zu achten. Stellen
Sie das Verhum gerade wo es Ihnen heliebt. Die Deutschen selbst
sind in der Beziehung hoechst unerfahren, und sind der moeglichen
Abwechselungen in der Wort folge gar nicht bewuszt. Es bringt ja
Leben in die Sprache, wenn man fuer das Zeitwort eine bisherunbe-
kannte Stellung herausfindet.
Uebrigens sind Geschlecht und Casus Nebensachen. Wenn man
ffax und fffk ein paar mal gesagt hat, soll man, um Eintoenigkeit zu
vermeiden, das naechste mal mit dw' beginnen. Mitunter soll man
auch ein zz an das Adjectivum anhaengen, auch der Abwechselung
wegen. Wenn auszerdem cler Satz nicht gerade fertig zu sein scheint,
so setze man ein trennbares, oder gleichviel ein untrennbares Parti-
kelchen ans Iinde. Dies ist unter allen Umstaenden erlaubt und
klingt besonders deutsch. Man musz naemlich zu jeder Zeit versu-
chen, die Eigenthuemlichkeiten der Sprache herauszubringen, und
von Anfang an nicht zu sehr von der beschraenkenden Strenge der
Regeln beeiniiuszt zu werden. '
Bei Anfaengern, die Aufsaetze zu schreiben haben, ist namentlich
zu empfehlen, lange zusammengesetzte Woerter zu gebrauchen. Es
macht einen ueberwaeltigenden Eindruck auf den Lehrer. Demselben
Zweck dienen auch die sehr verwickelten Saetze, mit so viel Neben-
saetzen wie moeglich, angehaengt oder eingeschobeng denn dabei
wird wohl der Lehrer kaum die verloren gegangenen Verba finden
koennen, oder im stande sein den versteckten Sinn des ganzen aufzu-
fasssen. Er verliert die Gedankenfolge und schlieszlich clen eigenen
Verstand. Dann ist es vorbei mit der Sache, und vor lauter Ver-
zweifelung schreibt er dem Betreffenden ein 'IT zu.

A B. LI. SGHQ.
To the tune of " The Spanish Cavalier."
Right upon Beacon Hill,
You may see it if you will,
Not far from that proud gilded dome, sir,
A building of renown,
liar-famed throughout the town,
ls this, our C. L. A. of famed B. U., sir.
Cnokus.-Then to our dear B. U.
With voices strong and true,
With fond hearts our glad tributes bringing,
We raise most joyfully, our song of loyalty,
While proudly of our Alma Mater singing.
Our chapel is our pride,
Its doors are open wide,
And you see at a glance our relation,
And groups of twos and threes,
On platform or settees,
Show clearly that we like co-education.
In Jacob Sleeper Hall,
Where maidens short and tall,
And lads of all ages assemble,
We give our little plays,
Receptions and soirees
And learned talks that fairly make you tremble.
Four years in dear B. U.
Bring memories, not a few,
Of busy days and happy hours of pleasure,
And 'tis with saddened heart
We from her halls depart,
Remembering all her blessings without measure
THC OICI, Qld, STQFU.
I waited,-ah, how much that means!
My heart was full of longing,
So many hopes, so many fears
Were through my sad soul thronging.
At last he came, O happy day!
He came, the long expected,
In whom alone all virtue, grace,
All wisdom are perfected.
And did I rush into his arms?
Ah, no, you have no notion
Of what I felt! No act, no word
Could voice my strong emotion.
Around me breathed a mournful sigh,
There came a frantic llutter
Of leaves, and then a desperate laugh,
And then a vigorous sputter.
" I knew he'cl give a quiz!" "O dear.
'Tis like his other quizzes "
" No other man in all the world
Would give one such as his is."
The questions come 5 one small mistake
And you are lost forever.
You scribble on with headlong haste,
But answer right, ah, never !

Davies or Hindle is not sweetly warbling in the locker-room
Lindsay-father or son--hasn't his hands in his pockets.
Uncle Cy isn't growling.
Prof. Warren wears a white shirt.
Which of earth's most lovely things
A messenger shall be
To advise mine own sweet heart
How clear she is to me ?
All too cold the gleam of gems
To tell a true love's worth,
Nor sweet enough the odor breathed
From any Hower of earth.
l can not trust it to the birds
jlilithe carolling in spring.
But hark ! beneath your window I
Will softly, sweetly sing.
Though far my wandering steps may fare,
O'er mountain, vale or sea,
Yet still my longing heart shall turn
To seek a home with thee.
Then grant the wanderer grace to find
Within thy shelter rest.
And if thou deign to hold it dear,
"Ah I who than I more blestll'

She was not mine to kiss in sweet farewell,
That gentle girlish woman g tho' her eyes
Silent with dreams, her ribboned hair that fell
O'er neck and forehead loosely nature-wise,
And yielding form in gown of white and red
Leaning so jauntily did tempt me nigh,
She was not mine to kiss, for she was wed,
And so a hand-shake was our sole good-bye.
Only a hand-shakeg but l left the train
And from the depot passed into the street.
And saw the shops, the teams, the sky again,
With no uncertain impulse in my feet,
And knew that there was one, come joy or pain
Whose faith in my ideals was complete.
Oh, the rapture, mild and free
When I feel that he loves mel
Though his lips are silent still,
Yet my heart with joy must till.
For the affection in his eyes,
Clear as clouds in summer skies,
Tell me that his heart is true,
Whispers, " none I love, but you !"
O, the Hood of heavenly bliss
When I feel his loving kiss,
The dear pleading of his way,
Can I ever say him nay!
Is his name to you unknown
I am not ashamed to own
Whom I love. You give it up!
"l'is my playful terrier pup.
I saw ein Miidchen dans la rue,
La plus belle girl that j'ai yet vu g
Sie looked so sweet mein caput turned,
Et comme fuego mein Herz burned.
The nix in clouds von le ciel
Sobre le pave gross drifts made schnell
Ich sagte " Chez elle I will go,
Und m'ajoutai as her cher beau.
We'll sitzen dans a trolley-car-
yespere her domus may be far"--
Caramba I Himmel! Sacre ! Hen I
No hay in my poche one blamed sou I
Thus perdidi puellam fairg

We're taught the Catacombs
Are but the peaceful homes
Of saints at rest.
But if you listen long,
That some one is quite wrong
Must be confessed.
For thither throng the fair,
Who shun the upper air,
Their lunch to eat.
Sometimes with happy tones,
Or half-suppressed groans,
They there repeat
Tales of the world above.
A stony heart 'twoulcl move
To hear them say
The cruel things they're asked
How dreadfully they're tasked,
Up in the day.
And so they come below
'l'o pour out all their woe
To willing ears.
And then they mount on high,
Resolved to do or die
Despite their fears.

O mother dear, you'll grieve to heal
You're much mistaken in this matter
For here from morn till dewy eve
'I'here's naught but everlasting chattel
You may look for inspiration at the glory of the sun,
At the passing hues of twilight when the day is done l
But the weeping of the wind, the sighing of the sea,
The budding of the blossoms has but little charm for me,
The spur to valiant action, to heroic passion lies
ln the shadows that lie gleaming in a lovely maiclen's eyes-
Hlue eyes, black eyes, hazel eyes, or grey,
Smiling, frowning, like an April day,
Laughing, dancing, happy as the lightg
Blazing, threatening, like the angry night.
Flashing dauntless courage to make the coward clareg
Bright with tearful pleading to keep the soldier there 5
Making man a poet to celebrate your charm,
Making him a hero to keep you safe from harm.
If ever I to fame or to noble bravery rise, '

Latin Comp and Latin Lit,
These are names that nicely tit
And Latin Antics, too.
But for a name for Comedy,
lipistles, and for Poetry,
We don't know what to do.
So, if a name you chance to Kind,
A name of just the proper kind
To suit us all quite well,
Take it to one who's troubled sore,
Who this great lack doth much deplore,
