BORIS L. GANA- POL enjoys an excellent X' reputation here. The Imperial Conservatory s 1 of Russia, of which lVIr. Ganapol is a graduate, is one of three noble in- stitutions supported en- tirely by the r o y al family. Teachers of European repute are called from Italy, Ger- many and France. Rus- sia herself has contribut- ed to this brilliant corps f Rubenstein, Tschaikow- N sky, Glinlca, Davidoff, etc.-men famous alike as teachers and perform- ers. Needless to add that under such masters , the training is most l severe and thorough- going. During the last half r of his four years' course, Mr. Ganapol, as the fav- orite pupil of his precep- tor, enioyed exceptional opportunities for acquir- Xxs ing experience as a teach- ,X pf X ff X 'X f er. Some private pupils oxen.,-'Z of his master's were en- trusted to his care. His own graduation brought Mr. Ganapol the warmest praise for proficiency and fidelity to his master's method. Pupils contemplating a serious study of the vocal art will find in Mr. Ganapol an enthusiastic, zealous and capable preceptor. His Wide repertory comprises, "Rigoletta, The Barber of Seville, Car- men, Aida, The Huguenots, Trovatore, Traviata, Faust, The Nlaccabees, Othello, St. Paul, Elijah, Samson, and Delilah," and many other operas, oratories, songs, ballads, etc. His cosy studio is at No. 270 Woodward avenue, Detroit, Mich., where a goodly number of pupils are enjoying his instructions in vocal art, and in Lansing he teaches at 4-O9 Grand street, South.

That it will serve in this capacity any longer we do not hope, in fact, we who have the welfare of our school at heart, do not wish such a thing, for it is only a mark of progress that each class should surpass its predecessor. XVe make no apology for this volume. You who are interested in us and our work will know that our best effort lies in these pages, and better than the best we cannot do. We are ready to acknowledge that our work has many imperfections. In truth, while looking it over as it comes fresh from the printer's hands, we even then recognize some of these imperfections, and would fain try again only that we realize our inability to better them. This must be left to following classes, who, we trust, will heed the criticism bestowed upon us. YVe repeat what has been said in every ORACLE: our jokes are meant to be harmless, but, having only ourselves to judge by, we must be par- doned if we unwittingly wound sorneone's feelings. Believe us, it is not intentional, but rather remember that you will some day perhaps be in our position and then you will understand how much of the popu- larity of an Annual depends upon those "cute" things. YVe have had our trials in putting together this volume, but as we see the result of our year's work we are happy, for out of these troubles we have come stronger and better arrayed to iight our own battles, besides which these will appear as mole hills. And so We speed the representative of our Class on its way, trusting that, in proportion to its success, our own success may be in our chosen lines of work, and confident that those who peruse these pages are our friends. .. ..

IIIGH ScHooL: Dear lozmg Fr1'e'mz'5-The closing school year suggests some thoughts for your consideration, which I preface with the regret that the duties pertaining to the Superintendency do not permit sufficient time for that close contact with you which reveals to each the purposes, aspirations and character possessed by the other. If it be true that "Education is life," the days you are now spending in school are of priceless value. The problem which you are solving might be stated in the following terms: Given a physical, a mental and a moral being, united into one complex personality, the soul of which shall live for- ever, how can you make the mos! of Zyfc and get mos! therefrom? It is true that a harmonious development of your powers includes a strong, vigorous body, a well-trained intellect and a positive, forceful and con- science-clear moral nature. With such an equipment there can be no failure in the true sense of the term. Success means not only the high- est evolution of the whole being, but also the marshaling of the lesser powers, viz., those of body and mind, under the leadership of the great- est-the immortal part that survives time. Your life will take its trend and measurement from those principles and habits which receive the greatest emphasis in your daily life. The power of choice rests with you. On the one hand it is possible to throw life away by subordinat- ing your powers to purposes unworthy of those who have so glorious a heritage. On the other hand it is possible to crystallize virtue into character that, like the eagle, soars far above the low plains of life into the clear air of larger vision. The adoption of a right purpose, the choice of a noble ambition, the willingness to toil patiently and heroic- ally in that drudgery needed for mastery in any line of work must be your task. On this side of the Atlantic the question which civilization asks of you is not, who are you? nor, who were your parents? but what canyon do? VVhat will and honorable place can youjilf? The answer which your life, not your ?7'Uf655I'07'l, furnishes determines your place and your worth. The old truth that you are the architects of your own fortunes should not be overlooked. From the vantage ground of sev- eral years' experience, I exhort you to courage, to industrious habits, to clean, wholesome livesg to unsellish devotion to all noble causesg to the vindication of the right against the wrong, to loyalty to ciuzjf rather than expedz'e1zQ1,' to high, noble aims, to a lofty morality that holds the life true to God, to a patriotism that serves country in peace as Well as in War. The right of Way to the highest place in any calling is yours. The humblest positions, however, are not to be despised, as they make pos- sible all those higher and more responsible tasks which appeal so strongly to honest ambition. That the World may be enriched by your noble endeavor and successful efforts is the wish of your friend, S. B. LAIRD. The Faculty CLARENCE E. HOLMES, Principal, Geometry, Geology. T.

Editorials When we hear the Word ORACLE, we immediately connect it with a prophet or a soothsayer such as in olden times presided o'er the Oracle of Apollo at Delphi, and from whence we doubtless derive our name. There is one feature of this ancient Oracle especially worthy of mention. Its responses could always be construed in two ways. As far as lies in our power, we have tried to follow this plan and we advise all persons who think they have been used as targets, to look at both' sides of the joke before letting their angry passions rise. However, for the benefit of a few one-sided persons, "The Board" has concluded to get ready its munitions of war. Forewarned is forearmed and as we are fulfilling the duties of a prophet, we will give another forewarner, gratis, to that enterprising class of '99. Do not publish an ORACLE. We say this most seriously after carefully watching your literary prog- ress as shown in the Christmas edition of your Observer. Rest content with the laurels won by that superhuman effort and do not tempt Fame again. She is a fickle creature. VVe thankfully acknowledge that you were wise to keep that edition of the paper in your own hands, judging from the great financial success which it proved to be. Therefore do we at the close again say, 't Do not publish an ORACLE.,' .X We have reason to be proud of the intellectual development offered by our High School. Since the teachers have always been carefully chosen, and have been such as desired the school's advancement in all directions, it could not, easily have otherwise than a high standing among other high schools. The teachers of English and American literature have been among the best, so that department is well deserv- ing of praise, and should be patronized much more than it is by the friends and relatives of the students and by all who wish the High School success. The study of the Sciences is becoming more and more interesting and more clearly understood as improved methods of teach- ing them are introduced, and although there is still the cry for more and better apparatus, yet the results are quite satisfactory. Every year more students are taking the Classical Course, and if those who so severely condemn Greek and Latin could see the interest and earnest- ness of the students pursuing this course, and the good derived from it, they would hesitate and consider the results before trying to discon- tinue the study of Greek. Another great improvement has been made this year in respect to the Senior Reviews. Whereas formerly Seniors reviewed the same studies, now those who intend to go to College review only such work as will be of advantage and give them a better start, while those expecting to take the teacher's examination, review what will be of the most use and help to them. Thus has the Lansing High School been advancing under able hands, and we hope it will ever continue under as capable ones, and so earn and win such praise as belongs to the Capital City High School. .al It is the opinion of the ORACLE Board, that if the reporters only knew what a load of care they could remove from us and how much more attractive they could make the joke department, they would strive harder. Not that we wish to find fault with our reporters this year, but we have observed among some of them, a sort of a don't care attitude, or a disinclination to jot down funny thingsg and then again we have found perfect jewels among them, those who were never too busy to give us a little information. In fact the reporters are a very important feature of the ORACLE and we wish here to impress upon them how important they are and to tender to them the thanks of the OR.-XCLE Board, who fully appreciate their work. J' The departmental plan adopted by this year's ORACLE Board, as the best solution of difficulties, has proven a blessing in disguise. Under the former plan, the Editor-in-Chief received all or the greater part of the credit and was compelled to give close attention to every article, beside looking after his own work. Under the new plan the Editor of each department is responsible for that department, and to him and his assistant belong the criticism or praise. Thus the work of each member of the Board can be more accurately judged and praise bestowed where it rightly belongs. On account of the fairness of this plan, we who have tried it this year hope to see it continue, for it saves much labor and worry, and, we trust, produces a better annual. tj . Again do we uplift our voices in the song of "A New High School." Every year the need becomes more apparent. This year the Freshmen class numbers one hundred eighty and the Eighth Grade on the second iloor has been forced to descend to lower regions in order to accommodate these lusty youngsters who resemble ether in that they are immeasure- able, imponderable, unweighable somethings which till all space fon the second floor, except a corner fenced off for the Seniorsj. VVhat the conditions will be next year we can only surmise, but we hope the tax- payers of Lansing will cut the Gordian knot by building a new High School so that we may not have to sigh in vain over Detroit's temple of learning. .al It has fallen upon the Senior Class to make some innovations this year, which we trust will be good examples for our underclassmen to follow. The most important of these is holding the class banquet at the end of the Hrst semester, in January, instead of in .Tune when everyone is rushed to fuliill all the engagements of Commencement week and as a natural result enters upon his vacation completely tired out. By holding our banquet about the middle of the school year, we hope to take away some of this rush and we think that we have. J The next thing to one session from the standpoint of the Senior is the seven hour system which went into practice at the beginning of the second semester in February. The poor, overworked, hollow-eyed Senior hailed this as a panacea for all his ills for now he has the entire afternoon to himself with no thought of early rising or a late dinner to dampen his spirits. This plan has been adopted by the Detroit, Grand Rapids and Saginaw High Schools and the one session abolished. .25 lYith the close of this year's work, three of the present teachers depart from the High School to enter other lields of labor. They are, Miss Young, Mrs. Jones, and Miss Urch. In the person of Miss Young the school loses an experienced and capable teacher, one whose place can scarcely be filled by a better instructor. She has taught in the High School for six years, holding successively the positions of Xinth Room Assembly teacher, Assistant Principal of High School, and Senior Assembly Room teacher. Miss Young has always treated' her pupils from a true democratic basis, and has ever been decidedly just and fair in her relations with every one. Having an excellent education and a thorough knowledge of the art of teaching, her efforts have always met with the best results. It was with sincere regret that we heard that she would leave her work here in Lansing, and our best wishes for her further success follow her as she goes to Jackson. where she will make her home. Mrs. Jones has had charge of the literary department of the High School for the past two years, but with the completion of this yearls Work she will also give up her teaching in the High School. Although she has very creditably accomplished one year's work among us, yet Miss Urch will not continue her work here in the fall.

But brighter the picture that comes to our memory, XYhen thinking of vanished school joys and school cares Of the method of reaching that Wonderful attic, Those heavenward rising five flights of stairs. Those Wonderful stairs, they will long be remembered, Those old High School stairs that we all loved so Well. Each turn of the route brought to light a grave teacher, Observing with proud eyes each future Wise seerg But if any one, whether Freshman or Senior, Dared speak in those halls, a reproof he would hear. A rap of a pencil, a touch on the shoulder Would separate far the most selffcentered pair, Such some of the things that befell many students, In climbing the storied, far-famed High School stairs. Those Wonderful stairs, they will long be remembered, Those old High School stairs that we all loved so well. The students of Lansing may sometime rise higher On Fame's golden ladder in days that will come, But ne'er will they find such a teacher of patience, VVhere'er on the Wide earth their footsteps may roam. We may meet with trials and weighty afllictions, When of life's burdens We all take our shares, But trifling will troubles be counted so long as We keep in our mem'ries, the old High School stairs. Those Wonderful stairs, they will long be remembered, Those old High School stairs that We all loved so well. HARRIETT HEXX ITT CLARENCE E. HOLMES Clarence E. Holmes Clarence E. Holmes, the principal of our High School, is so well known to both pupil and parent that only a brief sketch of his work is here deemed necessary. Born near Lansing on a farm, he attended a district school for sev- eral years and afterwards entered our High School where he studied two years. He then began teaching a district school and later he entered the Normal School remaining here two years during which he finished the post-graduate course. He next entered the M. A. C. and then after' his graduation, he inished a post-graduate course at Valparaiso. Eighteen hundred ninety-four, the same year that ushered into High School life the Class of '98, also welcomed Mr. Holmes. Step by step he has advanced with '98, who regards him as her special property and friend. The year '97 beheld him ably filling the position of assistant principal and the present year finds him as ably filling that of principal. Although '98 is no longer a High School class, yet she will ever watch with friendly eye the future of one who trod with her the ups and downs of High School life. - Presidents Address Perhaps there is no time in life when one is filled with so mingled a feeling of regret and gladness as at the close of the Senior year in our High School life. It is with the greatest feeling of happiness that we step out into life, but when we turn back and carefully review our days in school, we find it difficult to part with our many friends, teachers, yes, and High School life. Some of us will continue our studies in college, and our work in the High School has been so arranged and perfected that it has prepared us to be able to bear the heavy work of a more advanced course. Some of us will leave the old Lansing High School never to enter another insti- tution of learning. But even if this is so, by the careful training that we have received at the hands of our faithful teachers, we are better prepared to encounter the trials and difficulties which are sure to meet us in life. From now on comes the struggle with the world. In the past we have been under the guidance of the truest friends and kindest instructors, and leaving them is like leaving home to pass out in the wide world to seek that which fortune has in store for us. Our watchword for the last four years has been " Rowing not Drift- ingf' and it has been so deeply impressed upon our minds that it will be in the future, as it has been in the past, our guide and ambition. It is with this watchword before us that we have faithfully performed -our work in order to deserve our long-looked for diplomas. We have not come here this evening to enlighten or to display, for we can do neither. Perhaps some of you came here expecting to be entertained by eloquent oratory and the display of marvelous ability, the qualities are not at our command, at least they have not appeared .as yet. We do not all expect to become famous, though some of our names will certainly honor our school, if the same enthusiasm is dis- played in our struggle with the world that has been shown in school. Some of you have come here this evening because you are in sympathy with the High School. Vtfe thank you heartily for your kindly interest. You have been in our place, and know what it means to us. You have not forgotten the many happy thoughts with which you hlled the future, and now we come to you with those same thoughtsg and although our ideal is high, and We may not reach that to which we aspire, our intentions and endeavors are good, and, should we fail, we hope we may be remembered as striving for something high. Our work has not alone been to develope our mental power, but also to establish a lirm, moral standard which will follow us through life, and as we are " Rowing not Drifting " through this world, we will love to turn back to this Lansing High School and its teachers, to thank them for giving us the firm foundation which was the basis of our final success. KARL P. HODGES. D T. Paul Hickey T. Paul Hickey is now spending his second year as a teacher in the Lansing High School. That he has made a suc- cess of the branches which he teaches no one will deny. His Greek classes have been espe- cially progressive, that of last year having Hnished the first book of the Anabasis, a feat seldom accomplished by any High School in the State. During the past year he has also performed the duties of assistant principal. It is not only as a teacher that Mr. Hickey is so Well liked by the attendants of the school, but also as a prominent iigure in the Athletic Association, and all social affairs connected with the school. Last year he was manager of the L. H. S. track team and is this year president of the Association. The creditable Work of last year at Ann Arbor was due in no small degree to his efficient management. Guy L. Stewart Guy L. Stewart was born at x York, Genesee Valley, N. Y. At this place he attended school until his parents came to Gaylord, Mich., where they now reside. When only fourteen years of age, he passed a teacher's examination and two years later he was teaching school. He only taught one term however, when he entered the class of '91 at the M. A. C. from which he graduated in '95. During his Senior year he held the offices of Class President, First Lieutenant of the Battalion of Cadets and also manager of the base ball team. The following year the position of principal of the schools at Gaylord was offered him. He accepted it but resigned the next year in favor of his present position as Science teacher in our High School. His method of teaching that hard subject, Physics, has been some- thing of a departure from the customary plan and the students who have taken that study are well satisfied with their years work. He has shown himself to be well posted in this branch and with sufficient lab- oratory apparatus, thc results would be much more satisfactory. He has been a prominent iigure in our High School society and has won the friendship of his students who one and all wish him success in his future life. NI. Elizabeth G, Urch M. Elizabeth G. Urch, one of the new members of the Lansing High School Faculty, was born in the vicinity of Bristol, on the Avon River, England. ,Ah At this place she attended a boarding school until she came to America. She then became a student at Clarkston, Mich. After advancing her education here she began teach- ing. In 1889 Miss Urch entered Albion College and after graduating continued her studies for a time at the University of Chicago. From here she went to Iowa to resume her teaching but on account of failing health, was forced to abandon her Work in that state. She then returned to Michigan and accepted a position as teacher in Grand Rapids. After three years of successful work in that city she was offered a position in our High School. She accepted it and by her earnest Work throughout the past year has Won the respect of all who have been under her instruction and their good wishes will follow her to the place Where she next becomes a teacher. 7 Class Poem I. 'Mid Indiana's hills in forest clad, A cabin for a home, his playmate Toil, Far from the world's distraction and turmoil, Long years ago there lived a farmer lad. The wood his school-room was, his teacher Nature The glad, free air, the boundless arch above Taught him deep lessons of eternal love, And mind and heart grew to a noble stature. At last the simple farmer lad went forth Into the great, strange world his way to tight, To till his place in the Creator's plan. His fellows recognized his sterling worth, Gave him the highest honor that they might, And he became "the lirst American." II. No earthly helpers had he but his own God-given powers, and yet with courage strong He struggled upward and against the wrong, And stood at last a king without a crown. We point with pride to Lincoln as a man With that staunch nature and undaunted strength Who laughs at difficulty and at length Gains the reward which but the nobler can. And many others in this broad, fair land, VVhere Freedom lifts her starry banner high And gives to every man the chance to rise VVho for himself has dared to make a stand, Have on the summit fixed a longing eye, Then forward pressed and gained a lasting prize. IH. O, Classmates! VV'e who have from childhoods' time Been kindly, gently guided through the maze Of Learning's path, been taught to tread her ways And peered into the depths of truths sublime, YVhat glorious opportunities are ours! . XVhat guidance for the future strife have we! YVhat means of strength when madly swells life's sea VVhen o'er us dark the cloud of trouble lowers! Unlike so many heroes who in youth YVere forced to grapple with the world alone, Taught by experience' hard hand, YVe have been wisely shown the way of truth, And trials such as theirs have never known, As we have journeyed up through childhood's land. IV. But now we stand before an open doorg Now far-off voices seem to call us on, And mystic hands are ever and anon Beckoning us to paths not known before. But still we pause an instant ere we start To follow each a separate hand and voice, Before we venture thus to make a choice, As loath to break the binding cords apart. Some will but step into the broader halls Of Pallas' greater templesg others yet YVill plunge at once into the din and strife. But Wheresoe'er the chosen vision calls, Not one among our number will forget These years, now past, which fitted him for life. V. Soon go we forth. What will our future be? Where shall the coming time behold each one? What noble deeds shall every year ind done? 'What Works of worth shall others in us see? Ah, who can tell! We only can be sure That he who on himself relies will gain As much as he shall struggle to obtain, If to the end he faithfully endure. The courses of our lives now part, but still May each one gladly, bravely till his place, And, trusting Him who over us doth rule, Forgetting past mistakes, press on until Our study done, and linished life's mad race, At last we meet within the true High School. Hixmmafrr A. HENVITT Class History " There are things of which I cannot speak: There are dreams that cannot die: There are thoughts that make the strong heart weakg And bring a pallor into the cheek, And a mist before the eye, And the words of that fatal song Come o'er me like a chill: A boy's will is the wind's will, And the thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts." It was in the golden autumn of the year of our Lord eighteen hundred ninety-four that there came to the Lansing High School the largest class of Freshmen it had ever welcomed. t' For days before the advent of this great class all nature was in a state of eager expectancy, such as awaits the birth of a national hero or precedes an event of World-wide importance." Did the teachers have any presentiment when they looked into the searching eyes and intellectual faces that the ver-a dant minds before them were to increase their labors to so great an extent? Upon December tenth, eighteen hundred ninety-four, was organized the Class of '98, Under the guidance of our excellent oflicers, James Turner, President, Frances Farrand, Vice President, Gertrude Urqu- hart, Secretary, and Chandler Tompkins, Treasurer, our freshman year drew quickly to a close, for - " As Freshmen we never attempted to do the abnormally green, YVe never let Sophomores rule us nor be Sophomorally greeng YVe never permitted the Juniors to snub us on the streetg And we never looked up to a Senior unless he exceeded six feet." With the Sophomore year, the violent exercise of climbing the stairs and the invigorating air of the attic, combined to develop all our latent originality. The less dignified sleigh ride was superseded by the formal reception, three of which pleasing functions were indulged in, at these ...if fee' ' -' - :.:f+f.:-viznrm-uf --- - r rffr times Miss Mason invariably proposed to trip the light fantastic and was always seconded by Miss Losey. The class originality cropped out only once more this year, when Mr. James Turner, Mr. Christopher, Miss Cooley, Miss Glicman, with a chaperone, and several others preferred returning home from a High School picnic, at Grand Ledge, on a twelve o'clock freight train. The fore part of the next year was a time of violent political excite- ment which was greatly augmented by .Takie Schneider, the Poet Detective's eloquent gold speeches, while the Misses Fulton, Gitchell, Smith, DuBois, Hewitt, Maltby and Presley escorted by Mr. Hanshue started on their Greek travels. The independence of the class was again displayed when they took upon themselves the publication of the Obsc1'z,'c1', which, although it had been published the year before, was not a class paper. During this time the Junior X was being pushed forward by an energetic and enthusiastic committee. The glorious results spoke for themselves. The monotony of the rest of the year was occasionally interrupted by Mr. Chamberlain's smashing something in the Chemical Laboratory, and once in a while by Miss Fisher's seeing through a joke. Our Senior year ushered in an entirely original campaign, composed -of argumentative electioneering and stormy class meetings, which, however, were frequently lulled when some one started that beautiful little song, " Bill Spoor, Bill Spoorf' The result announced later was: Miss Florence Gitchell, editor-in-chief of THE ORACLE, Miss Fulton, assistant editor, Mr. Watling, advertising manager, and Mr. Fargo, business manager, with the Misses Glicman and Farrand, and the Messrs. Humphrey and Brown on the staff, Mr. Hodges, president, Miss Smith, vice president, Miss Ross, secretary, and Mr. Huston, treasurer. Of the several unorganized clubs, we will only speak of the first semester's noon club, with its daily banquets, chalk throwing from the windows, and song singing. This club consisted of the Senior girls who stayed to study UQ and get a few moments of quiet out of a busy day. Then, to keep up the social end of the school, how could the girls of the class and the school in general exist without Mr. Scott Turner, Mr. Humphrey, and Mr. Longyear? and the Senior Lits would have been nothing without Mr. Dunnebacke, Mr. Whitely' and Mr. Watling. s I T f XYhile speaking of these important events we must remind our under- classmen of the fact that now, as we are about to leave, we take from our school the most skilled and successful athlete, Clarence W. Christo- pher, whose place you will find it hard to fill, and there are others of equal value whom you would sadly miss were you capable of appreciat- ing them. Perhaps it will interest you to know the general average of this great class, which will soon be very important in the world's great life struggle. It is, on the whole, finely proportioned, standing live feet six inches in its stockings, brown hair and eyes to match, well-molded features, even temperament, all the girls handsome, a few of the boys gallant. The only fault is love for study and obedience, consequently the intellectual power and ability is inconceivable. It is no wonder, therefore, that "our ORACLE Board" is about to put out a volume which will probably excel any or all of the works of Chaucer, Shakespeare or Puck. Our High School life, which is fast drawing to a close, has been a happy one to all of us, and it will be with regret that we say farewell to each other, perhaps forever. The bell has sent forth its last dismal toll for us, and we are free from every care, and the Class of '98 will remain in spirit, as it always has been in reality, H First in the class-room, First in the ball-room, And first in the hearts of the Faculty."

Suddenly the door-bell rang, and Jane returned with a card. Hastily casting aside my apron, I ran up to the reception room to welcome my old friend, Frances Far- rand. Her errand was very important, she said, and I must surely come to her home that night, as she in- tended to have a Gibson evening, more she would not tell me, only that it was to be a surprise, and she meant to gather in all the old classmates she could find. Much mystified, I returned to my work, and the time was all too long, until several of my friends called for me and we set out for the studio. After a cordial wel- come from our hostess, we turned to meet the guests, and were delighted to ind ourselves in the midst of the old crowd. This was a surprise indeed, for we found friends from whom we had been separated for years, but still there was more to follow, for, on turning to an in- spection of the cozy studio, we found sketches of our youthful follies, scenes from our later days, and amid the delighted exclamations of the guests, the hostess. explained that Gibson fvvho had taken a deep interest in her workj had consented to sketch her old classmates, so that, when the reunion took place, the pictures might supply the missing links in our lives. She bade us look around, and gave us leave to ransack all portfolios, then leaving us to our own devices. she turned to welcome some new arrivals. and we proceeded to spy out the for- tunes of '9S. Harris Hanshue. now a pompous. classical professor, joined our group. and we followed where he led, for we knew from old-time experiences that he was "slow but sure." Suddenly. with a low chuckle. he made for one corner and. following him. we stood before a large framed sketch. This is what we saw: James Turner. now a famous after-dinner speaker. rivaling the fame of the aged Chauncey Depew. sat. looking anything but easy. He was apparently absorbed in the latest extra. all about the war: Bessie Cooley sat opposite him. very prim and sedate. with her hat on one side and sleeves considerably crushed-the very picture of innocence. as usual. Harris. in the character of porter. making an invasion in the time of peace. as usual. was rolling in a trunk decked with bows of white ribbon and cards of con- gratulation. Underneath Gibson had written. "Their presence of mind.-They had been in the room but a moment when they were startled by a knock." Harris murmured contemplatively. "Funny. don't you think- for me?" Xext to it hung a picture entitled, "After the Quarrel:" thousands of cupids hovered over the scene. each wearing the face of an interested classmate: Scott Turner and Dolly Humphrey sat upon a globe. whirling through space. They were jollying as of old and obliv- ious to all the world but themselves. Xext to this picture smiled a group of " Hy Ku Gullsf' May Ross, the president, was laying down the law: Min- nie Losey was raising serious objectionsg the question seemed to be on the admission of a new member. Around the table sat Harriett Farrand. Lena Smith. Olive Thorne. Ada Lyon, Frances Farrand and Sybil Davis. Frances assured us, in passing, that it was exactly as they looked at their last cabinet meeting when forming the platform of a new political party.

Harry Huston, the confirmed bachelor, was now punished for his former neglect of the fair sex. He sat alone in state with the laurel wreath upon his brow, a lonesome, soli- tary figure, pitied by his butler and maidservant. A lady near by, Fannie Sly, the ruler of a happy home, assured us that Harry was a most famous lawyer, but 'twas his bashfulness that slew him, and also said that his most intimate friend was Harry Whiteley, the noted bachelor doctor. But these Harrys are not the only devotees to the state of single blessedness in the Class of '98 for, in a large portfolio, we found a sketch of May Ross, a famous lawyer, dressed in her robes of state gaz- ing sternly at a poor little Cupid, while Chloe Goodrich, an energetic Joan of Arc, was demanding, "In days to come, who will look after this boy?', A question I am sure May could not answer. Thisvportfolio seemed devoted to woman's sphere, for next we drew out a picture of Harriett Hewitt, looking very severe in her clerical robes, Cupid softly playing a chant, while beneath we read, "In days to come, the churches may be fuller." Then came a merry scene, a council of war in future days. Here we found Mr. Stewart had so changed his mind about "Woman's dutyi' that he had accepted the post of general of a bevy of fair women who had adopted the Scotch uniform. Here we saw Pauline Fisher, the brilliant pianist, who, on her return from abroad had left all to follow the fortunes of war. Joseph- ine Driscoll was caroling "Where, and oh, where, has my Highland lassie gone? " Mollie Bangs, Tillie Van Halteren, Alta Andrews, Mattie West and Nellie Gates were discussing war measures while Mabel Wolf and Mabel Harris were humming softly, ffComrades We." Harris said he thought a change would be beneficial, he was "about tired of woman's rights," and so we left this interesting portfolio and continued our wander- ings. Zoe Freeman gave an embarrassed laugh as we stopped before a large picture to read, "A little story by a sleeve." Scene: Zoe's drawing roomy a spacious loungeg one corner reserved by Mr. Larose, the rising young merchant, coolly inspecting the ceiling while the butler who had entered unexpectedly, knowingly surveys the one crushed sleeve of Miss Freeman's new gown. Remarks are unnecessary. Ho! for excitement! "Yale versus Vassar"-a foot- ball game! Xow Harris was thrilled. Florence Gitch- ell, the Vassar captain, had pinned to the earth Chandler Tompkins, the famous Yale full-back. Lena Smith, utilizing her basket ball training, was pursuing the frightened half-back, XVill Deitzg Pearl Curry was quietly arranging her disordered tresses preparatory to a new onslaught and Clarence Christopher was making the best of this respite to put the ball in safety. XVhile in the midst of the fight I recognized Thomas Morissey, Ernest Wickham, Merton Clark and Leo Spoor. Alice Sleeper, the well-known umpire, was present but took care to avoid the rush. The next scene was a crowd also, but of a very dif- ferent sort. Mrs. Agnes Smith, now eligible for chap- erone, presents at court Miss Sybil Davis and, as usual, the American girl is very kindly noticed by royalty and a triumphant season is predicted for her and her young and fascinating chaperone. There are many temptations at home, however, as Gib- son shows in his next picture. Cupid has drawn up his frail bark to the shore and, although he seems in danger of being swamped, allures Miss Katherine Maltby. It is said that he won the day and that she embarked with a seaman unknown to many of her former classmates. YVhere are our studious friends of "Auld Lang Syne?" I ask, and Gertie answers: "Here they are," at the same time drawing out a sketch of the Latin Quarter from 7 f X Wa, fig T 4 ' . 'i-Q.-ff ..i-.li Iliff ffl fd J ft I 7 j XX ff Q l ,...

It seems that Madge Mason, Olive Dubois, Mildred Fulton and Rena Griffin, wishing to pursue this study farther, had settled in the Latin Quar- ter to be under the continued direction of Miss Atkins. 'Tis said, if you listen sharply, almost any fine evening you may hear their refrain, H:i7'77Z6l wrzmzgue ca1z0.', But Gerda Jayne was too independent to be under anyones's direction, so she became the leading lady in a popular play and Gibson shows her coolly smiling and turning her shoulder on the wrathful and exasperated stage manager, Arthur Dunnebacke to the intense amuse- ment of the popular commedian, Will Brown, who showed considerable talent along that line in our dear old Ger- man class. Noticing the haste with which my friend, Gertrude Urquhart, passed one corner, Harris grew suspicious and soon brought to light a romantic scene entitled, "To be or not to be Athletic? A hazy, indistinct background where a large factory looms, and oler which we read, "Claude Chamberlain, Wholesale Candy Dealerf' and down in front, Clarence Christopher led out by Cupid to Gertrude, standing with reluctant feet where the sweet and bitter meet. Frank Longyear raised a loud Ho! Ho! but was immediately put to rout by the companion sketch which Harris unearthed. "Trapped," called Harris and we all agreed as we saw a midsummer's scene, perhaps Bay View,-a boat upon the ripling water, Miss Emma Glicman in the stern, very cool and calm, Mr. Longyear at the oars in the opposite frame of mind. Underneath we read, HA Drama. She has just prevented his proposing by telling him she is en- gaged? Across my mind flashed the recollection of Emma 'sformer proclivity for a Kentucky lad. "Too bad, wasn't it ?l' said Harris. In the midst of the laugh which was raised, the hos- tess announced refreshments and led the way to the dining room, where we had an opportunity to chat and visit gaily. "Did you see anything of Lena Lietzan, Addie Clark, and-wait a minute,-there's Caroline Bray. Ruby Zachariah, Gretchen Ziegler and Mary Dann! lVhat did Gibson do with them ?" said Bessie, moving her chair closer to mine. "Oh, clidn't you see that large, square portfolio? There was a sketch in that entitled, 'Fooled Againf Cupid stood outside a glass case which contained these young ladies who were beyond his reach. lt was too funny! His face looked so forlorn and it was such a good idea, too, because they have refused several good offers and resolved to devote all their time to the famous ' Girls' School,' founded by the eccentric young millionaire, William Humphrey, who is so fond of base ball." Florence Hopphan has been engaged as music teacher, but Dame Gossip says they can only keep her a year, as some one urges a prior claim. " Ida Richardson did well, didn't she 7' said Gertrude, joining us. "How ?" We asked. " Oh, I received a letter from her the other day, and she has decided not to return from her study abroad but to remain permanently as Countess Politiskyf' There Was a lull in the conversation, and We heard a group near us telling of Perley Jones and his recent deeds of bravery, by which he had been raised to the rank of Captain,-a gallant leader whom his men bravely follow. Inquiring for Alice Hurd We found that she was an instructor in the lVoman's Department at the M. A. C. A loud discussion in one corner silenced our chatter, and We found Vllill Humphrey, Harvey Fargo and Karl Hodges arguing over an error in yesterdays base ball game at the M. A. C., which they claimed was the only thing that lost them the game. Harvey insisted that it Was all VVill's fault on account of that four-inch collar he borrowed from James.

"XVhy, you know that Supt. Laird and the present Principal Holmes of the mathematical department, have almost succeeded in banishing all Frats from the U. of M," said Frank mournfully. " Yes," we agreed, "but what of Mr. Hickey ?" "VVhy, he's on his wedding trip, traveling in Europe," answered James. " He mar- ried a Michigan girl, but no one seems quite sure which one it was." Miss Young, who always insisted that she would graduate with us, finally passed arithmetic, and is now devoting her energies to one pupil, but in a different branch than she ever taught before. Mrs. Jones is taking a leading part in Shakespeare's famous old drama, S' Much Ado About Nothing," and Miss Lamb is in Berlin, astonishing even the natives by her proficiency Auf Deutsch. Mr. Stewart and Miss Atkins, Gibson has told us about. We thought in silence, for a moment, of the good old days, and with a half sigh arose to depart. Passing through the studio we found a picture we had overlooked, hanging near the door, entitled, 4'Re- morsef' Lee VVatling sat in a dejected attitude in a house, and dim shapes of the people he prodded so sharply in ORACLE days hovered around him with vengeful faces. No rest do they give him day or night, and it makes him somewhat more careful in his leading editorials in the ZVew York Sun. After expressing our delight at his just punishment, we turned to thank our charming host- ess for this pleasant reunion, and I persuaded her to come home to lunch with my friends and myself. Gath- ered in my room, sitting cozily around the open fire- place, tea cups in hand, we chatted merrily over old days, bright remarks and funny happenings of the old crowd until Gertrude and Bessie remembered their house- hold cares of the morrow and Emma arose lazily to announce that her visit must end next day, as she was urgently requested to return home. Many were our good wishes and farewell Words, and when the last "Good-bye" was said, each knew the other's heart was full and brain busy with kind memories of the dear old class, and that in days to come the magic Words, "The Class of "JS," would prove an open sesame to every heart and home. We might, in the midst of other cares, forget all else, but he who had that talisman which pro- claimed him one of our classmates, could claim our help and sympathy. R. ISMUND SCRANTON. A Present and a Future Tense It is one of those delightful days in the last week of June, and two persons are idly drifting down the Marsyos River between high bluffs of sandstone and past green islands bordered with cloudy willows. " YVe couldn't have chosen a better day for our Class picnic," She is saying. L' Yes, the day is splendidf, replies He, " and it is so quiet here. Let us change our class motto into 'Drifting, not rowing' and build air- castles. You build one and then I will build one and we will see which is the better." "Well, you must wait ,till I lay the foundationj' She answers. Two or three minutes pass by. They have drifted into the dark shadow of a willow that is dipping its leaves in the water. She turns her head to one side pretending to listen and thus begins: "I will tell you what this willow is whispering to me. It says that some day, a long way off, I shall be a great author. I shall write a book and put my very best effort in it. Then, sometime, you will be glancing through a magazine and you will see my name at the end of a story. And after I have earned a great deal of money, I'll travel, travel, far away to India, Italy and Spain and when I am tired of that, I'll come home and settle down in a delightful nook near Sleepy Hollow where I can see the Headless Hessian, when the moon is bright, gallop by me, and I am going to have the loveliest, rambling old house, covered with vines, and inside a perfect labyrinth of queer little passages opening into bright, sunshiny rooms. One spot I will fill with birds, I love birds, and my own corner where I am going to write, I shall strew with magazines and the books I like the best, and when I am settled, I'll invite you to visit me, and now my castle is finished, begin yours," she says. tt A very modest mansion have you built I 'f laughs He. 't I will remember my future invitation. Now harken to my tale of woe! Of course I shall be great: everyone puts that in their castle, but the first story of mine shall be filled with musty old Greek and Latin books and I shall spend four long years keeping the dust from them and sweeping dovvn the cobxvebs. Then. as soon as I am through the University, I shall enter politics and my castle will be much higher than yours, for I mean to be president and nothing will prevent me. Here I will have honor and the respect of nations and I will serve my country faithfully. Then when all this comes to pass, I will place in the third story its queen. She 1 "Oh dear." interrupted his companion, "Are you going to enter politics too? I hate them! It's nothing but a lot of underhandedness, buying and selling I" " But I will never do any such thing," laughs He. "XYill you promise me?" She asks, partly in earnest, partly in fun. He hesitates. A promise means so much more to him than to most people. If He makes it He knows it must be kept, but pshawl He does not intend to do anything dishonorable anyway, so what's the harm. " I'll tell you what I will do." He says. " I'll promise that if ever I am tempted to do any such thing, I will come to you first and talk it over with you. IVill that do ? " She holds out her hand and a seal is added to the promise. Then. as if tired of the subject, He abruptly says: "Let's carve our names on that sandstone across there ! " and leaves his aircastle to apply the oars. n Peep in at the open vvindow of that rambling structure almost hid- den by the. vines and shrubbery about it. Do you see a Woman sitting at a small round table littered with manuscript? It is She. Changed, did you say? Of course. Experience is not a gentle teacher, he always leaves his traces. But still if you look again, you will End the same features, although marred by Wrinkles, that you satv so long ago. She has built her castle and builded Well, but it has cost more than She reckoned in those happy days of long ago. Her book is successful, but the struggle has exhausted her. She does not care to travel nowg rest, rest is all She desires, and so She has left one story of her castle unfinished and climbed to the next, a home on the Hudson near Sleepy Hollow. As She sits here tonight Waiting for an inspiration, She is living again those happy days and thinking of the one who built with her. That He, too, is rising She knows, for to this quiet retreat, papers have drifted in from the busy whirl of the outside world, bringing tidings of him. He, also, is building with Fact as He once built with Fancy, and He also comes in contact with bitter realities that make him often pause. But He has set out to conquer and an iron will aids him. He is nearing his goal and, as She sits here tonight, She thinks how true they have been to their castles. She wonders whether He has changed any, for She has not seen him since that day so long ago when, free from care, they drifted. How queerly fate does manage affairs! She places a hand upon the head of a large St. Bernard to quiet him. The door softly opens and He stands before her. " You sent me no recent invitation, but I come on an old one, do you remember?" Their eyes meet for one minute, and in that brief space the years roll back to the days on the river. "I am here to keep my promise. Next week will occur an election in my city that I must carry. Twenty-five thousand dollars will secure it for me. If I do not win, the opposing party will place in power a man who is entirely devoid of honor. I must have this place for it will bring me much nearer my goal? He speaks so calmly and in such a matter of fact tone that She wonders how this dream will end. As He awaits her answer, the long- ing to finish his air castle, to make her its queen grows stronger. All the traces which Experience has left upon her, serve but to make her dearer, nobler to him. Finally She looks up. Her dream is ended. This is reality. Like an echo his words come back to her, and She begins to consider their real import. She weighs, discusses and questions. For the first time She realizes what a strong will He has. She argues with him all to no effect, and as He, firm in his resolution, stands in the doorway and says, t'When I have reached my goal, may I claim my queen?', Then only does She fully grasp the situation. Then only does She understand how much She must give up. It is not for such strong natures as hers to hesitate, and after a minute She answers, "If you are honorably elected, you may." Silently He turns away, and passes out into the moonlight night, She watches his form going down the road until He is lost to view. For a long time She stands there, looking out into the night. then, recovering herself, goes back to the library and her manuscript. For one week He struggles between the two. He must finish his castle, yet He cannot do it without her, and He must win. He is only human-He yields. That dafs papers are full of the overwhelming majority by which He carried the day. One is whirled into that quiet retreat on the Hud- son. She reads of his victory, and then for a week awaits the coming of a piece of white paper, with a few lines upon it, telling her that the election is honorable. It comes not, and She takes up her work again. Her castle has fallen. FLore12NcE G. GITCHELL. A Fault She's tall and dark, with dark brown hair, She carries herself with a stately air, She entertains with winsome grace- I love to watch her beautiful face. But people say, when talking to me . QAnd they must be right, for they all agreej "She's proud, you see." Yet I love the girl with all my heart, And I'm proud to know I can take her part. The fault they ever must keep in sight I see in quite a different light. And the reason I have for thinking it so Will prove itself, for they all must know She's proud-of me. i F I I ...l......- . 1 Our unior Exhibition Baird's Cpera, House, March 25, 1897 PROGRAM PART I Overture, - - Orchestra Greeting, - Bessie Scranton President's Address, Harvey Fargo Vocal Solo, Mrs. J.

By reason of the enlargement of the stage and the tasteful arrange- ment of the screens and tapestry, one could scarcely remember the true appearance of the platform devoid of the artistic effects. After several months of constant practice under their former King, the Sophomores were finally presentable, and, although much of the fine work seemed lost to some, the Freshmen occupying the front seats fully compre- hended the ludicrous side of the program, as was shown by manifes- tations of their glee in frequent outbursts. Every feature of the program was carried out with great success, and the manner in which those gallant Sophomores shifted scenery gave evidence of diligent preparation, and we have no doubt that when these Sophomores are Juniors, they will, by their excellent individual Work in their Junior Exhibition, have shown their superiority to ordinary Juniors.

Junior Exhibition Committee Ned Hopkins, Chairman Phil Hasty Jessie Laird Norah Baird Clara Armstrong Harold Hedges Charles Lesher Marian Seeley Edith Davis Herbert Barringer Clark Jagger Leon Shettler Mabel Donovan Molex Summer ING: The mellow moonlight fades, and over all Steals a soft brightness, as the sable pall Of Night is lifted by the rose-leaf hand Of morning. Now the iirst bright silver sand Marking the hour of dawn slips through, released, And the pale face of the fair, waiting East Flushes, then crimsons as the rising sun Kisses her softly. In the VVest, like one Condemned, the moon hangs, now with Visage white She with a stolen brightness thro' the night Shone in soft splendor. Now, with features drawn Stands she in guiltiness to face the dawn. Queen of the midnight sky, too long she stayed, Too long her flight from the bright host delayed, Brightness and glory all too swiftly fled, Leaving her beggar's tatters in their stead. Faint and far-off, then growing sweet and clear, Comes the first bird-call to the listening ear. Thrilled by the note another songster wakes And answers, and the strain of music breaks Like the iirst trembling notes which greet the ear From a great orchestra. Then far and near lVith one accord the birds take up the strain, 'Til orchard, field and woodland ring again VVith the glad matins of the feathered choir. Hundreds of dewdrops, lighted by the tire Of sunshine, glitter in the grass, each blade Upholds a tiny globe that seems ,twere made Xooxz Of liquid light. As the 'West wind goes by- Fresh from its home where green prairies lie Rolling away in emerald waves to meet i The azure sky-o'er fields of yellow wheat lVaiting the busy reaper, light and shade, Billow on billow by the breezes made, Chase one another in untiring whirls. Sweet-scented roses, white as ocean pearls, Crimson and yellow, pink as sea shells, sway Over the low stone wall with lichens gray. Great golden bees, with pollen-laden feet Buzz ' round them sleepily, dizzy with sweet. Fair is the world! O, wondrous, wondrous fair! Brightness, and scent, and bird-songs fill the air! Noontide has come, and over all there broods A hush. No bird-songs even in the woods Disturb the silence. Now and then the drone Of a belated bee, who comes alone From his long pilgrimage for distant sweet, Floats through the drowsy air. The fervent heat O' ercoines the flowers and each hangs its head Upon its slender stem, too tired to shed Its perfume. Where the dark green willows bend To touch the stream whose limpid waters wend Through the thick grass and over gleaming sand. Up to their knees the soft-eyed cattle stand In the cool waters. stooping now to drink, Now reaching crisp green grasses from the brink. Tired out with labor, 'neath the oak tree shades The farmer rests-the interwoven blades Of grass form a soft couch on which he lays His weary frame. Beneath the sun's bright rays All Nature droops and waits the healing balm And gentle touch of Evening's velvet palm. INICHT: Shadows grow long and longer, and the birds Warble their vespers. From the fields the herds Come slowly up the lane through dew-wet grass Tasting its juicy sweetness as they pass. Darker and darker still the shadows growg The birds are still, and stars begin to glow And Hash in the dark tresses of the Night. Over the marsh we trace the fire-fiy's flight By fitful flashes. Rising from the bogs Is heard the harsh, discordant note of frogs Mellowed by distance to a softer sound. Myriads of wings of insects all around Vibrate and quiver 'til the summer night Seems filled with music. Flooding with her light Meadow and stream and woodland, glade and glen, Making the flowers dream 'tis day again- Over the eastern hill tops comes the moon, Shining in light and beauty only June Lends her pale orb. Meshes of gold and gray Cast through the tree tops, o'er the greensward play Softly the west wind rocks the sleeping flower, Softly he steals within each leafy bower, Stops to caress amid his fitful play Half-opened buds he scorned to touch by day. Fair are the days when spring's first blossoms blow: And days when searching bees wing to and frog When red leaves fiutterg and when snow-flakes fallg But a .Tune night is fairer than them all!

Class Yell Rickety! Rackety! Rung! Now that We have begun We're going through till We are done . In the year 1901. Motto: " Still achieving, still pursuing." Freshmen from a Freshman Stanclpoint The "Freshmen " when asked to contribute a small portion of their large and varied stock of knowledge and experience for the editication of the readers of the OR.-XCLE for '98, hardly realized the fact that the school year was near its close, and that so soon their joys and privileges as the " Freshman Class " would be over and that they would be follow- ing in the sedate footsteps of the " Sophomore Class " and before many years had passed they, too, would be publishing an ORACLE. The " Freshman Class " this year, taken as a whole, outnumbers any of the preceding ones and besides this fact they are, taken individually, much smaller. This may be due to their minority in years or the eifect of very hard study, which is the more probable of the two. During the progress of our class we now often stop in thought, Wondering if at the commencement of our Sophomore year we' will miss any of the manly forms from our ranks, who at the Nations call for H Men " have responded joyfully and given their noble lives for the Nation's cause. Despite the fact that the Sophomores deem themselves superior to the Freshmen, it is a noticeable feature that they are not able to resist the temptation to join them during " certain specified hours of the day for certain specified studiesfl The Freshmen's only hope is that there will not be such alluring temptations for next year's Sophomores. According to Miss Young's theory, the " Freshmen's feet " are the largest part of them. Our only reply is that We do not mind the "swell feet 'l as long as We do not have the "swell head," which sad mishap, we fear, has happened to some.

S. exchanged the privilege, recently extended to them, of paying monthly dues to the Athletic Association and attending its meetings, for a basket ball team, which has met with phenomenal success. The game, besides being an interesting pastime, gives many beneficial results and affords a pleasant recreation from the routine of school duties. Through the efforts of Lena Smith, '98, the team was organized and in good practice before the Christmas holidays, and its condition was greatly bettered by suggestions given by Lieut. Bandholtz of the M. A. C., who kindly inspected the girls' playing one day, and invi- ted them to come and play a practice game with the M. A. C. girls at the College armory. This game was followed by two more, all of which were won by the L. H. S. girls, with scores respectively 16-2, 12-3, 12-2. The last being played at the new armory, on Ottawa street, was witnessed by quite a number of Lansingites, who Watched it to the end with great satisfaction, and many cheers resounded. On February 5, the girls. of the B. B. T. gave a supper at the new armory, and were well patronized, as a result of which they have paid for their baskets, and have partly paid for their suits, which are Wine color trimmed with white braid. As the ORACLE goes to print a public game is being arranged, which is expected to come off before the end of May. If you have seen one game, good Lansingites, you will heartily support the next one, we are sure. The offcers elected are: Lena Smith, '98, Captaing Edith Presley, '98, Managerg Mabel Smith, '00, Treasurer. And, girls of '99, '00, '01, with energy again take up this beneficial and enjoyable sport, and when the girls of '98 have almost faded from your memory, still uphold the record this team has made for you, and the L. H. S. will be as proud of her girls as of her boys, whose fame has already spread. Leaving their best wishes and the basket ball set as legacies for future teams, the girls of '98 hope that, in the near future, the State will know of, perhaps hear of, as a famous yell: Yah! Yah! Yah! Yes! Yes! Yes! B. B. T. L. H. S. EDITH PRESLEY, '98, Clarence W. Christopher rc For the past four years the Lansing High School has been favored with the services of two of the best athletes in the State, and as they both leave this year, a brief sketch of their career in athletics is probably of interest to more or less of the stu- dents in our school. In 1894 Mr. Christo- pher entered, and at once made the foot ball team. In the following spring he entered for the all-around and Won it at both the local and the annual field days. In the fall of '95 he again played on the foot ball team and proved himself to be a very valuable man. In the spring he won the all-around medal for the second time. Last year it was decided that the all-around caused the men who were working for it to overtrain, and therefore it Was taken out. HOW- ever, Mr. Christopher was one of the athletes who helped the L. H. S. to secure the cup. The following are his records: 100-yard dash, - - 102 sec. 220-yard dash, - - 24 Sec, 440-yard dash, - 53? sec. Running high jump, - 5 ft. 7 in.

Since he began his athletic career he has steadily improved and he now holds several inter- scholastic records. He and Mr. Christopher to- gether have won more medals and points and hold more inter-scholas- tic records than any other two athletes in the State. The following are his records: 5 sec. 102 sec. - 532 sec. 10 ft. 3 in. 20 ft. 11 in. - 44 ft. 11 in. 4 ft. 9 in. - 40 ft. 95 ft. 27 ft. 6 in. Quid Est?

The time of action is drawing near, And Ann Arbor soon will hear Voices of boys, long and loud, Cheering on the Lansing crowd, On Field Day. A bluff at Local has been rung, And new athletes have been sprung, But no crowd came near that day, And our expenses we could not pay Local Field Day. The eventful day arrived at last, Things came our way thick and fast. At last the team, covered with glory, Returns. The crowd cheers. Same old story On Field Day.

But in spite of this, the athletes of our school again carried off the honors, every man on our team getting a medal.

And Whate er your life or station, Here's some jokes you've got to take Exchange Department A great philosopher has said, "Some men are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." But to suit our present predicament, we wish to make another classification of the human race. Some men always live good lives, some always live bad lives, while some live bad lives for a time and then reform and run for alderman, or take a seat in the Legislature, and thus make model citizens. The tirst is the ultra perfect, which we could never hope to attain, the second is the other extreme, which we wish to shun, while the last is the happy medium, which pleases every one and oifends no one, which, let us hope, we will be found to resemble. Every chain is as strong as its weakest link. Every book is as good as its worst page. As we have endeavored to make our book that happy medium between the Allegro and Andantino which will please every one and otiend none, it must be a combination, not of the bad and good, but of the frivilous and sedate, of the light opera and legitimate comedy. And so, if anything in this department savors over sutiiciently of too much consultation of such standard classic works as "Puck," t'Judge" and the f'Black Cat," and not enough of Milton and Addison to suit your extremely critical judgment, please remember that some other weary traveler may rejoice and find comfort in these pages of 'ftrifles light as air," and that on some other page there may be for you a banquet of thought besides which this is but a "3-cent lunch." All the jokes are meant to be harmless, but if any dangerous ones are here they have got in without the keeper's knowledge of their true nature. If any seem particularly venomous to you, do not put your hand through the cage and stir them up, but pass right on to the next cage, where there may be something on some one else that may make you forget your own trials and tribulations.

Last Night's Effort Cast All Its Pre- decessors Into the Shade-A Splendid Affair. The Juniors of the high school class of '98 covered themselves with glory at their Junior Exhibition at Baird's opera house last evening. and the affair devel- oped orators, elocutionists and very excellent dramatic ability in many of its members. Nothing was neglected that might assure the success and pleasure of the entertainment and the enthusiasm of the audience was evidenced in every detail. Following a selection by the orchestra, Miss Bessie Scranton gave a delightful greeting. Then followed the president's address by Harvey Fargo, in which he gave an interesting history of the Lan- sing High School and its associations. Mrs. James P. Edmonds sang a very charming group of songs, the orchestra rendered a medley and the first part concluded with a farce from John Kend- rick Bangs, "The Bicyclersf' It was in one act and the parts were taken by Misses Bessie Cooley, Emma Glicman and May Ross, Messrs. Harris Hanshue, Howard Van Auken, IVilliam Humphrey and Fred Lyon. who carried out the experiences of an amateur bicyclist in a very realistic manner. Part second opened with an orchestral selection which was followed by La Habanera from "Carmen," very beauti- fully sung by Mrs. James P. Edmonds. The orations, "A Plea for Country Life," by Miss Frances Farrand and "The American Flag," by James Turner, were compositions of a high standard of ex- cellency and would have done great credit to much older minds. Miss Pauline Fisher responded to a hearty encore, after rendering the piano solo, "The Bubbling Springf, by Julia Rive King. The farce which closed the program, 'KA Proposal Under Difficulties," was a scene in a fashionable drawing room, where two young men had called to propose to the same much loved young Woman. Miss Lena Smith, Gretchen Ziegler, Clarence W. Christopher and Scott Turner were in the cast and all appeared quite pro- fessional. The idea was a very clever and laughable one and both farces con- tained many local roasts and did not in any particular bear the stamp of ama- teurish peforrnances.-Sizzle Republican. JUNIOR EX, 99. The annual airing of the Junior Class took place last night at Baird's, and in comparison with the splendid achieve- ment of last year, it fell decidedly fiat. Of course the house was crowded, for the splendid reputation of these enter- tainments, gained by successes of for- mer years, insured to it a financial suc- cess. The outside talent was especially iine, the rest was nil. After hearing the charming songs of Mrs. J. P. Ed- monds and Mr. John Atkinson, Jr., one could not but hope that they would con- stitute the entire program. The program was divided into two parts, one part consisting of music and some so-called " orationsf' and the other of a couple of solemn farces. Of the orations, one, given by a little girl, re- minded us of a reproduction of one of Mrs. Caudle's curtain lectures, which we once had the pleasure of hearing through a phonograph. The class president spoke a little piece, but he was evidently very much scared at finding himself the center of so much attention. The star of this part, however, was a youth who gave what sounded to us like a boned-down and warmed-over copy of something we heard in the same place last year. His delivery, however, was impaired by the embarassment caused by the guilty consciousness that it was his first appearance in long trousers. He should have worn them several days and got used to that choking sensation around the ankles. It was supposed that the farces would be the most enjoyable part of the enter- tainment. If anyone had these sanguine expectations they were ruthlessly shat- tered. In the melodramatic farce called " A lN1ouse-Trap," the heavy villain was a young man whose gestures and classic poses consisted in walking across the stage with his hands in his pockets, and in smoothing down his several locks of hair. At this moment someone among the audience saw something in the greu- some proceeding to laugh at. He was promptly ejected from the theatre by Mgr. Baird. A series of living pictures was posed upon chairs across the stage, who, upon the mention of the word "mouse" and a majestic wave of the hand of the aforesaid young man, would go into all sorts of contortions, which were supposed to be the funny part of the farce: but the audience didn't dis- cover this until later. iSeen in a window down townj SPECIAL CHRISTMAS NUMBER LANSING HIGH SCHOOL GBSERVER Price I0 cents POR SALE HERE This was the direct result of a great effort on the part of the Junior Class. This was the triple extract of months of labor coupled with tons of gray matter that were expended in order that this ponderous volume might go forth and "delight" the expectant public with its parody of jokes and distorted reproductions of quotations, alleged to have ebulated from the minds of some overly incandescent Freshie or Soph., who was trying to translate his lesson and at the same time pick a quarrel with his girl for allowing some one else to sharpen her pencil. O yes! this was a great production. We do not wonder that the effect so permeated the whole class that they never ceased talking of the great achievement until on the distant horizon we saw the Hrst faint streaks of that bombastic combination of water-spout and wind- mill, called the Junior Ex. The Junior Class made a lot of money out of this issue, almost as much as they did at their Ex. So much, in fact, that the Business Manager was enabled to come to school the next day with a new necktie, clean collar and his shoes shined. The paper was gotten up in great style, the cover being printed in the characteristic color, green, and illustrated with drawings by Miss Norah Baird, the artist whose good drawing enabled her to draw a prize in a lottery once. She was also quite a drawing card at the Junior Ex. As stated before, this cost the Junior Class a great effort and in fact they did not recover from the effect for a good many moons. It was almost the death struggle. The blow that most killed father. They never recovered sufiiciently to get out another number worth the price of admission. THE H RD TACK XYOL. III LANSING, MICH., JUNE 15. No. 2 STRUNG UP itary person was sitting, devouring Former Member of the L. H. S. Now Dangles in a State of Great Suspense from a Trolley Pole in Alaska. CFrom Our Special Correspondentj XYe are unable to relate the full particulars of what was perhaps a dreadful tragedy, from the very meager reports that have reached us from our Klondike correspond- ent. At an early hour the other morn- ing, Glacier Jim, the Chief of Police at Dawson City, was informed that some one had gone South with a very valuable N. F. dog belonging to the mayor. It seems that the dog was not usually so valuable, but the mayor, whose term of oflice expires next month, desires a re- election, and had invited several l i bosses to a banquet, promising as ai special inducement, some imported sausage, relying on the carcass of the dog to furnish the sausage. As the Chief of Police desired a re- appointment under the mayor, his unusual activity is explained. A posse was soon formed, and as they passed over the suspension bridge, someone remarked that he saw a light in the southeast. The mob turned that way, and it proved to be a camp-tire, beside which a sol- V 1 the last portion of what would have been the chief attraction at the mayor's banquet. He was taken back to the city, and when the inhabitants learned the particulars, their fury knew no bounds. The only rope in the set- tlement was rented, and in a few minutes the vengeance of the mob was satisfied without any demon- stration beyond the discharge of a small cannon and other ire arms too numerous to mention. The unfortunate young man had only reached the town a few days ago, coming here direct from the States. He was unknown to any- one in the diggings. Since receiving the above, reports have reached us that confirm the belief that the above mentioned victim was no other than Jakey Snyder, a loose character about town, who left for the gold regions about a year ago. The description that reached us tallies exactly, viz: "He was somewhat above the medium height, nose prominent, eyes of a beautiful deep sea-blue, and had a distinguished military walk, which he acquired by long service in Cuba and elsewhere. His unfortunate demise will be re- gretted by a large circle of Lansing friends to whom he owed money. Fuller particulars will be pub- lished later.

The primary object of the OB- SEIQVEH, of course, is to make money. Next comes the object of advertising the staff, most of the members of which would never be heard of were it not for the free ad- vertising they get in the OBSERVER. However we do not envy these for- tunate ones. We have heard that " people's names like their faces, always appear in conspicuous places," and if they have no higher ambition than to have their alleged deeds and misdeeds advertised through the columns of a cheap news sheet like our contemporary, the Junior Observer, they deserve to be pitied rather than blamed. We have heard the question asked several times if the Seniors didnit get awful mad at the several severe UD "rubs" they have re- ceived at the hands of the Observer. We wonder if the moon got mad when the little dog barked at it. As these impotent outbursts of the Observer Cor the Juniorsj in attack- ing the Seniors very much resemble the little dog barking at the moon, we will hope that the Seniors are not very much disabled. VVe are told that Hcurses, like chickens, come home to roost," and these continued whinings of that measly imposition, the Observer, can harm no one and only serve to cast dis- credit and repudiation upon the class. The Observer has no nec- essary excuse for its existence in the High School except giving employ- ment to a business manager. Any- way, what do the Seniors care if they are abused f?j in bad English regularly once a month? We hope that in the future, the succeeding Senior classes will take it upon themselves to see that their presiding officers keep company with a member of the Senior class. The president of the Class of '98 has been guilty of gross neglect of duty, which arose wholly from this cause. He has neglected to take advantage of the seats provided for the Seniors during chapel exercises and has preferred the two-in-a-seat company of one of the girls of the Junior Class. We would like to see Herr Holmes attired in one of Monsieur Hickey's collars. It is said that the Americans are the most irreverent people in the world. Were this not so steps would have been taken a good many moons ago towards placing a monument of H. Ott upon the High School' campus. Mr. Ott has been a member of every Senior class that has graduated since the " memory of man runneth not to the contra- ry," and is entitled to some recog- nition on account of the distinction. Let the good work go on. XYe noticed an address the other day on a subject " Songs without words." If it should apply to our High School Teachers' choir we would suggest that they call it " XYords without songs." XVe hope that it will fall to Mr. Holmes' lot to teach geometry again next year. After hearing the Professor demonstrate one of his own jokes, no one can doubt his ability to give even Father Euclid a few pointers. The illustrations in this depart- ment were drawn by an Indian of the Oklahoma Reservation. .29 Answers to Correspondents. JAMES.-VV6 have had a compe- tent surveyor go over the ground, and your estimate is correct. The distance from Franklin street to Main street is 18 blocks, and the return makes 36 blocks. This traveled three times a week makes nine miles per weekg 52 weeks in a year makes 468 miles per year. We think this ample exercise to keep one in good physical condition for any athletic event.

A. ANDREYVS.-VVC do not know of any preparation that will suc- cessfully remove ink stains from the face of postage stamps. RALPH YV.-We are unable to answer your query why H. Ott always wears a square-cut coat to make him appear shorter, and then spoils it all by combing his hair pompadour, which produces the opposite effect. Can any of our readers answer? .al Some enthusiastic writer has claimed that there is no charm in the world that equals the charm of the first things-that there is a freshness and originality about first attempts that far exceeds any accom- plishment of more mature years, and cites as examples the enthusi- asm of the small boy over the first snow-fall, and how the first tiny blossoms of spring have a freshness and a feeling of fellowship that is never equaled by the most luxuriant hot-house flowers. How the Hrst ripe berries from the home garden are praised, and how joyfully the farmer brings from the field the 'drst golden head of grain or the yellow ear of corn. How the sight of the first robin delights us, even though we know he will have to endure many a cold day before the warm sun brings the joyful songi from his tuneful throat. These thoughts came to us spon- taneously at the occasion of the Sophomore Exhibition. The in- spiration came from Geo. Hopkins, Freshman. George was present with his girl, or rather, George and his girl were present. The inci- dent is a very good illustration and transpired as follows: George came up the stairs and modestly placed two tickets in the lily white hand of the teacher who was punching pasteboards for the time being. "You've made a mistake, George, " said the guardian of the Sophs. "VVell, She's coming," replied George, as he rushed in to pick out iwu seats as far from the rest of the Freshmen as possible. When some remarks were made about the incident later, George re- marked, "Well, what is the differ- ence, as long as we both had room enough ? " JF BOOK REVIEWS. The following publications have been received since our last issue and cangnoty be obtained at any of the book stores. H The Moral and Social Merit of lthe Senior Literary." A. Dunne- lback. Some literary critics of today complain that our writers do not have enough knowledge of the sub- ject they handle to impress their readers and for this reason much of our modern literature is shallow and too much on the surface. How- l ever, after reading Mr. Dunneback's instructive and interesting book, lone feels that the Hinfalliblell crit- iics have for once gone astray. Whatever charges they may bring against it, they certainly cannot insist that the author is deficient in facts relating to his subject. Mr. Dunneback has faithfully attended every Senior Literary since their inauguration and succeeded in win- ining the prize oifered by the ladies Ito the gentleman attending the 'most times. His book is full of valuable hints and should be stud- ied carefully by every one who in- tends to be a Senior next year or otherwise. Price, in half-morocco and gilt edges, 32.39. Mss Lizzie Young has published a collection of her lectures which lfill a long felt want, and should find a place in every well appointed blacksmith shop. These lectures have been delivered to the Senior Class at sundry and promiscuous occasions with telling effect. The two lectures on H Punctuality 'l and "W'hen to Laughl' are especially fine. No one can glance through these pages without a sigh for the l I w days that are no more, and the sweetness wasted on desert air. These books can be examined at our office where they are for sale.

We are in receipt of a hand- somely bound volume from the press of Print 8: Co., N. Y. It is from the facile and entertaining pen of Mr. James Turner, entitled "Per- sonal Experience with a Bath-Tub. " The volume is gotten up in elegant form, being printed on real white paper and having the type large enough for a person to read with- out the use of a compound micro- scope. The events narrated by the author took place at Detroit, in a bath-tub, some time last winter. Hearing of one of these inventions and being desirous of beholding one with his own eyes, he went into a barber shop where they were displayed. His inexperiences which ensued are sure to amuse and in- instruct the reader. For sale at Cooley's News Depot. Price, 2 plunks.

This political ring was '4 busted " by the 'tpeople" of the Class at their great election. .al Accident in High School. A very serious accident happened in the High School a short time ago, which clearly demonstrated the need of ambulance service in this city. Few people realize the enormous responsibility resting on a teacher in case of accident, and the quick judgment and executive ability that are indispensable. On the aforesaid date, the class in 11th Grade German had assembled as usual in the recitation room pro- vided for their use. Not a thought of impending danger darkened their minds as they diligently translated their lesson. It was a sketch of Martin Luther's life. Suddenly, in making the transla- tion, someone spoke these blood- curdling words " His greatest joy was a Latin Bible, in which he could read all day." This was more than the majority could com- fortably digest. Visions of their experiences in Latin floated through their minds. How they had burned midnight oil and worried their brains to dig through a page of Czesar, or one of the orations of the classic Cicero. Weeks, days and hours had been squandered, and here was a man 'twhose greatest pleasure was a Lrzz'z'1zBible, in which he could read every day." .55 HAS NOTHING TO SAY. Pres. Hopkins of the Juniors, when interviewed by a reporter of the "Hard Tack," declines to commit himself. Ex-Pres. N. Hopkins, was in town yesterday and registered at the Hudson's House. After greeting the reporter with his characteristic friendliness and briefly discussing the weather, etc., he was asked "W'hat are the prospects of next years' Oracle." "Splendidl' replied he. t'Of course" he rejoined "we shall not attempt anything like '98's mammoth production, but nevertheless we expect it to com- pare favorably with the annuals published at the U. of M., Yale, Cornell and others of the same standing as the L. H. S." " How is it about the Business Manager," asked the reporter. "We under- stand that your friends have been doing some pretty tall hustling in your behalffl "No," replied he, with a knowing wink, " It's a mis- take, I haven't striven for the posi- tion, but I ani in the hands of my friends, and whatever arrangements they make, I suppose I will submit to." t'Then you refuse to affirm the rumor?" f'Most emphatically." .29 HOW IS THIS? Base Conspiracy in Educational Cir- cles-A Reporter for the Hard Tack has just Unearthed one of the Most Sensational Complications of Mod- ern Times. An effort was made some time ago by some of the members of a certain Senior Lit. Com. to hold the Senior Lit. at the Liederkranz Hall. We are glad to state, however, that the base attempt was frustrated in time to make it unsuccessful. These Senior Literaries have always been r characterized by the high-class moral tone which prevailed at every meeting. The removal to the aforesaid place could not have had anything but a demoralizing influ- ence upon the participants. 'We do not wish to mention any names, but we understand that one Spoor was the guilty author of the idea. .al Lansing is proud of one record in athletics which is not found in the annals of the Athletic Associa- tion. This is the record for the long distance walk made by Messrs. lVheeler and Tompkins last fall. All the former records were made under the most favorable circum- stances. This, however, was made under as adverse conditions as can be imagined. The night was very dark and although they walked on a cinder track, the frequency of bridges and culverts to say nothing of the unevenness of the railroad ties made the way anything but one to be desired. Added to this they had no special walking shoes but merely their ordinary every day equipment. These are the conditions which surrounded these two heroes when they made the State record from Mason to Lansing last fall via the M. C. R. R. track.-Ex. .ai We see by the seat of Hanshue's trousers that Hudson's have had their porch recently painted. WAS A GREAT GAME. Unanimous Opinion of all who saw the Contest-Seniors won a Tie Game from the Junior Aggregation of brawn and muscle-Senior's precedence clearly shown at every stage of the game. VVithout doubt, the warmest ex- hibition of the great American College game took place at the ball park last fall, when the Junior- Soph. team lined up against the Senior-Freshmen team in deadly combat, to play the first of a series of three games. No base pecuniary motives stired the hearts of the contestants, the game was to decide the deadly feud existing between the classes, and incidentally to replenish the treas- ury of the Athletic Association. A vendetta existed between the two classes and the supremecy was to be decided upon the bloody sands of the arena. Not a contestant but whose heart was thrilled and in- spired by class patriotism and the desire to leave his mark upon the person of his opponent. Accord- ingly the entire ambulance service of the city hospital was pressed into service and the spectators were guaranteed to get their money's worth. At promptly 3:45 the Senior team stepped proudly into the Held amid the thunderous applause from the grand stand. They made a iine appearance and their manly bear- ing was much remarked about in contrast with the puny Juniors, despite the fact that the Senior team was weakened by the loss of one of its best players, Mr. W'hitely, who withdrew at the last moment. His father objected to his playing, because he was too rash and mighty dangerously injure some one. Q The Seniors who won the toss-l up, took the kick off and secured ai touch down in the first half by, magnificent work against the ene- my's line, which was punctured ati every moment by the terrific on-l slaughts of the Seniors. The first! half ended with the ball Suu im possession of the Seniors, danger-5 ously near the Juniors' goal. j During the interval between the two halves, the Juniors were pre-i sented with yellow roses fto matclU their playingj and soaked with beef tea fto brace them upj, and' coached by their mammas and warned not to play too rough. The second half began by the Juniors kicking off. The Seniors secured the ball and by brilliant team work the ball was slowly7 advanced nearly to the Juniors' goal. At this period of the game, i probably on account of some mis- take by the time keeper, the Juniors secured possession of the ball, thenl by phenominal plays by the referee l and umpire the ball was carriedr over the line, and the Juniors secured y their only goal. Once more they Seniors possessed the pig-skin and: l by excellent playing soon had the ball within eleven inches of their opponents' line, when the time keeper, with a brazen face and steely glitter in his eye, boldly announced that the time was up. He explain- ed that this was done to make the game a tie and thus secure a larger attendance at the following games. The Juniors, although equaling in weight, were clearly out-classed and out-played by the Seniors who good naturedly allowed the game yto be a tie. The leading feature of the game, as has been said, was the yellow work of the referee, through whose unfair decisions the Juniors secured their only touchdown. Chas. Hay- den won liberal applause by the manner in which he successfully kept out of the way. He, however, was not the only turtle, there were others with the golden sea-weed hanging down their backs and rings in their noses, who had im- portant business elsewhere when any hard play was going on. Also the long run by James Turner de- serves special mention, who ran half way across the field to get out of the way of an end play. The most disagreeable feature of the game was the frequent delays. The game was delayed sixteen times to allow Mr. Christopher, the full-back, to comb his hair. The thing that seemed to please the spectators most was the bathing suit worn by S. Turner, which dis- played the matchless lines of his symmetrical form to great advant- age. He was greeted with pro- longed applause every time he hit the earth. The Seniors have every reason to feel the greatest satisfaction over the result of this game, for besides flooding the treasury with money it clearly demonstrated the suprem- acy of the Seniors over the Juniors in athletic affairs. The third game was not played, on account of the lateness of the season. .af- Too Late to Classify. Do people anywhere subsist with- out plant life? Larose suggests the Klondike. At Oracle meeting.

Hopkins was obliged to be absent from school several days, on account of a severe case of "mm C07lZlZ50S mc1zz'z's." He is a trifle bet- ter, but a relapse is feared. The Oracle Board held a reunion and smoker last Thursday to all old members and their friends. The third degree was conferred upon several candidates. After an enjoyable evening, the party ad- journed to the new cafe, Turner Hall, which is under the manage- ment of Mr. James Turner, Class of '98, where an elegant spread was devoured. A committee has been appointed by the Freshman Class to visit all the principal dentists' offices in town to secure pointers for a class yell. What narrowly escaped being a serious accident happened near the Michigan Avenue bridge day before yesterday. Little Pearlie Jones, son of Mr. and Mrs. N. B. Jones, was playing on the river bank with some of his small companions, when he lost his balance and was precipitated into the cruel, dark, wet water. His companions became terrified, and ran away. Young Jones, however, had presence of mind enough to call for help, and was saved wholly by the extreme lightness of his head, which kept his vocal organs above the water until a hospital ambulance could arrive. He was wrapped in several of those new neckties, which kept him warm until internal stimulants could be administered. Wle hear that at last a sounding board and wires are to be placed in Mr. Hickey's room to enable the scholars to hear distintly without so much exertion on the part of the instructor. Mr. Stewart attended chapel May 26th for the first time this semester. Although he took no active part in the official proceed- ings, yet we were very glad to feel tHat he was with us. The report of the class statisti- cian is just out containing many interesting statistics. It states that during the school year Miss Brisbin has played "Come, O Come to me" 76 times. This is her favorite. CWe wonder why.D Miss Cooley has played "I Have a Friend, O NVhat a Friend" and "Let the Electric Lights Be Burn- ing" 64 times each. The VH Chapter of Ecclesiastes has been read 16 times by Mr. Hickey and Miss Bronson. Prof. Stewart has used the expression "The like of that" 33 times. Night Clerk Chamberlin of the Gates House, stepped on his wrist while going us stairs the other day. He is somewhat improved. Miss Dollie Humphrey has ac- cepted a position as cash register with the Sand Bank. F. Longyear has published a very interesting volume entitled, "Remi- niscences of College Life." Mr. Longyear has attended most of the leading colleges of the country and has secured abundant material for his book. He is eminently qualified for such work, having had much literary experience and edited several college publications while attending different institutions of learning. The lecture by Frl. Lamb, in- structor in German on the subject "The Influence of the Pretzel and Frankfurt upon German Litera- ture," was well attended and en- joyed by all. Chas. Lesher made quite a mis- take some time ago, which, if it had leaked out, would have made life unendurable for Charles. The English class were required to read some prominent person's biography, and then write a review of it. Charles chose Cleopatra, but in- stead of getting the authorized King James version, he made a mistake and got H. Rider Hag- gard's "Cleopatra,'l which is a sen- sational departure from the classic volume he was supposed to expend his energies upon. VVhen he pre- sented his carefully prepared re- view to Mrs. Jones, she explained to him that there were other books in the library upon the same sub- ject. J Field Day. The S'teenth annual field day of the local A. A. took place at the fair grounds last week. In spite of the drizzling rain and slim crowd, the contests were very spirited and exciting, and were an entire suc- cess from a standpoint of clean amateur sport. It was noticed that only a very few of the judgments were protested. The judges were secured at a very enormous cost, but this was not envied when the good judgment they gave was taken into consideration. G. Cleveland, of Princeton, and B. Weiler, of Madrid University, were judges of the track events, and J. Corbett, whose judgment gave entire satis- faction, was referee of indoor events. The following events were pulled off: Baloon Race-Vreedenbnrg. Running Broad Grin-Hanshue. VVon with ease. Running High Standstill-Hodges. 15 mi. R. R. Walk Qfrom Masoni- YVheeler and Tompkins.
