ERE, Weary, let me rest.
f Through silent spaces of the upper air
The mountains rise aloft into the blue,
", And sunshine rich in evanescent hue
fqxf Stays lingering on the hoary summits there,
i I And on beyond the west
1 2 , L Old ocean beats his patient music o'er
'Gainst the rude rock, and on the melting sand
Dies breathless, or recedes to some far land
Seeking, but finds no rest, forevermore.
It is a day for aye
To live and love, yet gladly bartered here,
If memory but loose her gentle wing,
And mounting into yesterday new sing
Of other days departed and so dear.
The mountains fade away 5
'Where ocean was, a world of waving grain,
Fair farinsteads, and the green of growing maize,
Sunlight, and melodies the west wind plays,-
O radiant prairies I So you live again.
And one, the best of all,
One blessed spot where yet the world is new,
Vvhere Alma Maier crowns the sloping h
Fronting the world and duty g Where she
Looks east or west and knows her children true g
Where still her loving call,
Pealing like bells accordant, oler the land
Rings clear, till all our grateful hearts arise
And, homeward turning, brings her glad
And filial greeting, and the warm right hand.
Visions on visions grow.
Here, where the dreams of high-aspiring youth,
Daring all noble deeds, began to be,
And love awoke and, like a panoply
Of knightly honor, clad the soul in truth,-
Here like sweet waters How
All freshly by dear memories of joy
In books and noble thoughts, and suddei
Hallow the friendships of forgotton years
Too good to die, 'coo pure to know alloy.

pf" HERE is no ti1ne in the history of an institution
at which it is more appropriate to glance backward
. L2 5 and contemplate whatuhas been accomplished than
:T 4 on some important anniversary. Many things worthy
it of record occur which, soon forgotten, are past recall
ll 1 4 unless recorded in some permanent form. Accord-
:5 1 ll ' ingly the Class of 398 have taken the opportunity to
issue THE FIRST QUARTER, hoping that it may be found to be a correct
history of the student life as it has existed in our Alma Mater. VVe
have tried to make the historical sketches of the diilerent organizations
concise, and as accurate as possible with the meager records at hand.
The poems which are credited to former students have appeared from
time to time in the Owl, and, with three or four exceptions, were
Written while their authors were yet under-graduates. XVe wish to express
our gratitude to the Faculty, and especially for the hearty co-operation
of the Advisory Committee-J. H. Powers, Margaret E. Thompson, and
W. E. jillson. We are indebted to many of the Alumni for their good
wishes and assistance. To Mr. A. B. Show of Leland Stanford Ir. Uni-
versity and to Rev. G. W. Mitchell of Franklin, Nebraska, we are
indebted for the 'tAnniversary Odel' and "Early Reminiscences ,j 'f '
ff Qmvse r -N5
of Doane." VVe are also grateful to Mr. John H. Cassel of 'WWW' ,P

li So let the past go by,
Y 'f' Blending in mellow shades and softer light
1, All good and ill, all vanished joy and pain
That wait and linger like the faint refrain
H If Of dying music on the silent night.
It is no time to sigh .
X X For dream-lands past all reach of voice or cry g
. maj They were, but are not, for they passed away
They left but memory and the glad to-day,-
To-day and promise of the bye-and-bye.
To-day Y O matchless hour
'Whither the slow upmoving ages bear
The heritage of wisdom and the worth
' And hope and glory of the elder earth,
To dower thee, so true and passing fair :
Thine is the holy power
To set the world a blossom in the sun,
Fragrant and beautiful, till love shall twine,
Like the sweet tendrils of a clinging vine,
Round all thy happy children, one by one.
And thou, O sunny land,
To-morrow I who art yet to live and be !
Like unfamiliar voices calling far
Across the radiance of the morning star,
Into new day we go, and answer thee g
Lo ! smiling dost thou stand
In the dim dawn, as simple maidenhood
Vested in truth and nobly pure and wise 5
And in thy vision all our thoughts arise
And follow where thou leadest unto good.
And, mother dear, to thee,
Sun-crowned and queenly on thy gracious throne,
Whither our pilgrim hearts in loving song
Go up rejoicing, as a merry throng
Of children bearing summer flowers to one
They honor most,-to thee
XVhat meed is due, what gift of summer cheer,
What fragrant chaplet, garlanding in bloom
And grateful praise, the dear, familiar home,
Is fit the message of our love to bear?
Strong in the lapsing years,
Strong in the swift allegiance and the faith
Of all thy sons and daughters, thou shalt see
The upward march of ages yet to be,
And faithful serve in life and unto death g
And passing hopes and fears
Shall bear thee ever onward, till thou stand,
Lifting expectant eyes to the dear face
Of Him who fixes and appoints thy place,
Glorious, and serving still, at His right hand.
