IN presenting to }-ou the fourth vokime of the Cream and Crimson, it is in the hope of " portraying in as an interesting manner as possible the year jnst passed, as it has appeared to the students of Central University. We have endeavored ' lo deaUwith all the prominent phases of college life, as seen at ' Central University, and to make the Cream and Crimson a souvenir of that- life. We have spared no efforts in trying to make this volume far surpass all previous at- tempts, and if we have been successful, we shall feel abundantly recompensed for our expenditure of time, thought and labor. Accept, kind friends and critics, the Cream and Crimson of ' 98, with the feeling that, whatever its defects or omissions, our class has done its best. r ij H. F. POLLMEYER, Editor-in-Chief. G. W.

LINDSAY HUGHES BLANTON, D. D., CHcANCELLOR. ji Dr. Blanton, to whose efficient management and indefatigable labors as Chancellor the University owes so much, was born in Cumberland county, ' a., July 29th, 1832, and was graduated at Hampden-Sidney College ; also at Danville Theological Seminary, Danville. Ky. His first ministerial service was with the Presbyterian Church, at ' ersailles, Ky. , then at Salem, Va., then as Chaplain in the Confederate Army. In 1S6S he became pastor of the church at Paris, Ky. Here he was not only instrumental in building up the church to greatly increased strength and efficiency, but threw himself with all his energy and rare executive ability into the work of building up the educational interests of the community. Local institutions of learning took, under the stimulus of his enthusiasm, new life and energy. His ripe scholarship, rare executive ability, and indomitable energy soon led to his recognition as one peculiarly fitted for leadership in the great work of public education. When the chancellorship of Central University became vacant it was natural, therefore, that, young, comparatively, as he was, he should be called to that important post. One of less courage might have shrunk from the position tendered him, encompassed as the institution was with financial problems of the gravest and most ominous character. Not at all discouraged by difficulties, he threw himself into the work of es- tablishing the credit, consolidating the finances, and broadening the range of scholarship and the sphere of patronage of the institution. As another has truly said, " His wise methods and cheerful words soon restored the fullest confidence in the future of the University. Generous contributions to the endowment again began to flow in, and the institution has gone steadilj- forward, increasing every j-ear in patronage, lifting higher every year the standard of instruction and scholarship, until now it stands abreast of any similar institution in the country, and is regarded as one of the chief ornaments of the commonwealth. " Dr. Blanton, while devoting his chief energies to the development of Cen- tral University, has been intimately and honorably associated with every great movement of the church in Kentucky As a director in th e Theological Semi- nary at Louisville, he has rendered invaluable service. He has been from the beginning a warm supporter and a wise counsellor in the great work of Synodi- cal evangelization. He is recognized as one of our strongest and most scholarly preachers, as one of our most profound and erudite thinkers, as one of our soundest and best-equipped theologians. His influence is perhaps second to that of no member of the Synod of Kentucky, to which he has devoted so assid- uously and untiringly his service. The Central University of Kentucky, I. H.

The members of this convention, whose purpose it was to take steps toward establishing a Christian institution of the highest order, and under the auspices of the Synod of Kentucky, organized themselves into a permanent association and offered to the Synod their co-operation for founding such an institution. Thus the movement was inaugurated which resulted in the establishment of the University. The sum of $220,000 was subscribed as a beginning, which was thought sufficient to open an institution. The most sanguine friends of this enterprise could scarcelv have believed, when the doors of this institution were thrown open in 1874 for the first time, that within fifteen years, most of which were years of financial depression, the University would weather a most trying ordeal of adversity, and 3-et so improve and commend itself to its supporters that they should ralh and subscribe three successive additions to the endowment — the first of $60,000 and the other two of $100,000 each. Yet such is the case. Every dollar was raised in the state of Ken- tucky, and almost entirely among the Alumni Association and the Southern Pre.sbyterian Churches. This speaks volumes for the liberality of Kentucky people. After the fund was raised, sufficient for opening the institution, several towns became warm competitors for the location of the University — chiefly Bardstown, Anchorage, Danville, Paris, and Richmond. The wisdom of selecting the last named as the seat of the University has been amply vindicated bj- experience. The new institution was opened in September, 1874. At first there were only two col- leges, the Hospital College of Medicine, located at Louisville, Ky., and the College of Phi- losophj ' . Letters and Science located at Richmond, Ky. Recently the College of Dentistry was established at Louisville. Rev. J. W. Pratt, D. D., was elected President of the II College of Philosophy, Letters and Science. For the position of Chancellor of the University Rev. R. L. Breck, D. D., was chosen. In a short time the period of depression came and Dr. Pratt was forced to return to the pulpit. Soon after, Dr. Breck and other members of the Faculty resigned, and the number of students was greatly decreased. After a few years Col. Bennett H. Young, of Louisville, Ky., came forward and suggested a reorganization, and renewed the efforts to establish the Universit) ' on a firm financial basis. To the vacant chancellorship Rev. L. H. Blanton was chosen. This proved to be the turning point in the career of the institution. Rev. J. V. Logan, D. D., Ph.D., who was prominently connected with the establishment of the institution, was now elected President of the Faculty. The first step made by the Chancellor was the securing of contributions to the endowment fund to the amount of $60,000, with which the educational facilities were increa.sed, and the grounds beautified and ornamented with additional streets, drives and shade trees. New and large sums were now added to the endowment, and it is needless to say that under the impetus of such success the University continued to jirosper. In the fall of 1897, in connection with the University at Richmond, was established the Col- lege of Law, with Judge William C. Chenault and Hon. R. V. Miller at its head. Such moves as these fully show that the University has lost none of its youthful vigor, but is steadilj ' improving each year. With an institution in this state so thoroughly equipped to do the best work in higher education, and striding so rapidly to the front place among similar institutions in this country, it is unreasonable for our xonth to seek elsewhere for their Alma Maters. The l niversity is now resting upon a good financial basis in all four of its colleges — Medicine, Dentistry, Law, and that of Philosophy, Letters and Science. VP JAMES VENABLE LOGAN, D. D„ LL, D,, PRESIDENT OF THE FACULTY. Dr. Jame.s Veuable Logan was born in Scott county, Ky., July ii, 1S3S.

In 1S6S he resigned his pastorate to accept the editorial conduct of the " Free Christian Com- monwealth, " then published at Louisville, Ky. He held this position until the union of the Kentucky Synod with the Southern Assembly. Dr. Logan was one of the foremost leaders in the effort of the Synod to found Central Uni- versity, and was the first man to take a chair, having been appointed b v the Synod to the Chair of Ethics and Christian Evidences. Assuming his duties with the first senior class in 1876, he has faithfully filled his position up to the present day. In 1880 he was elected to the presidencj ' of the l niversity, and the same year the degree of D. D. was conferred upon him by Hampden-Sidney College. In 1890 he was honored 1)y the degree of LL.

He was licensed to practice law by Judge W. C. Goodloe in 1862. Admitted to the Kentucky bar in the circuit presided over by Judge Bramlette and shortly afterward took up his residence in Richmond. His strong grasp of legal principles, aided by his skill in practice, soon ranked him with the ablest lawyers of his circuit. When Central University was located here he was elected a member of the first Board of Curators. In 1880 Judge Chenault went to Louisville to accept the lectureship of Common Law, Equity and Pleading in the University of Louisville.

In March, 1889, he was admitted to the bar. But, desiring to take a course at some famous law school, Mr. Miller entered the Yale Law School the following September, and after a two years ' course was graduated in June, 1891, with the LL.

Miss Bowden comes from the Western portion of the State. She was born at Russellville, Logan count -. Ky. When a very young girl she exhibited great talent and fondness for elocu- tion, so after taking elocution for a year at her home in Russell- ville, she went to Louisville to have the benefit of instruction from the well-known elocutionist, llr. T. M. Hawes. Here she remained for two years and became ver ' proficient and accom- plished in her favorite art. She returned to Russellville and taught for a year in the public school. Next year she accepted the position of Elocutionist in the Franklin Female Listitute, Franklin, K -., and remained there for two sessions, being very successful with her class. The next year she was given a sim- ilar positiiin in the Hardin Collegiate Institute, Elizabethtown, K3 ' ., one of the branch schools of Central I ' nix er it -, teaching at this place for a vear. vShe next came to Richnumd and took the chair of Ivlocution and Oratory in Central Uni -ersit Though Miss Bowden has been in Richmond fnit a short time, yet she has won the esteem not onl ' of her pupils, but also every one with whom she has come in contact. 26 27 The Hospital Collog© of Medleln Tlie Curators of Central I ' niversity, desiring to establish a medical department where there would be an abundance of clinical material, selected Louisville, Ky., as the site of the college. Clinical teaching has always been one of the chief aims in the course of instruction as laid out by the Faculty. The attendance has grown from year to year, attesting the value of this method of instruction and demanding increased facilities for the accommodation of the students. The Faculty have added to the originally small building until now they possess a large and handsome buihling, with ever3- convenience for the most modern methods of in- struction. To provide for bedside teaching and hospital experience the Faculty purchased a plot of ground immediately in the rear of the college, and erected a large infirmar ' , containing four wards, a number of private rooms, and a clinical amphitheater of the most recent design, thoroughly equipped with an arena for aseptic surgery, and having a seating capacity for over three hundred persons. The laboratories arc under the direction of experienced teachers, and are equipped with the latest and most approved apparatus. The large out-door department assures an abundant supply of clinical material, illustrating all forms of diseases, and especially those incident to the southern and western portions of the United States. The Louisville City Hospital, which is situated across the street from the Hospital College of Medicine, is under the entire control of the Faculty of this college during half the session, when the students have the opll )rtunit • of observing almost every kind of disease or of surgical operation. The Hospital College of Medicine belongs to the Association of American Medical Col- leges, which recpiires four courses of instruction in four separate ' ears, but students who are graduates of recognized colleges and universities, and who have completed therein prescribed courses in elementary l)ranches of medicine, including Chemistry and ISiology, may apply for advanced standing, ;idniilting them into tlie Snphomore Class. :;8 ' ' fe l T Mm r J.

VIEW OF MEDICAL APARTM E N T— G R A Y ST. INFIRMARY. SURGICAL CLINIC. HOSPITAL COLLEGE OF MEDICIME. LOUISVILLE. nO 35 The Louisville College of Dentistry. The dental department of Central University, is located in Louisville, K}-. It has been a pioneer in all efforts looking toward higher requirements and higher attainments in the dental profession. It was one of the organizers of the National Association of Dental Fac- ulties, and still remains an earnest member of the association, which now embraces ever}- respectable college in the I ' nited States. Every advance that has been made in the teaching of dentistry has been adojited imme- diatel} ' , and capable and experienced men selected for such departments. The growth of the school has been so rapid that the Faculty have often been hampered by lack of room, although several large additions have been made to the buildings from time to time, and extensive improvements are now being contemplated for the next year. It has been the constant aim of the management to have each and every student who has carried away the diploma of the college, thoroughly equipped with that knowledge, both theo- retical and practical, which would enable him to practice his profession in an eminently qual- ified manner, and to this end no pains have been spared to place before the student everything that would aid in his present and future advancement. The Hospital College of Medicine, with which the Louisville College of Dentistr - is con- nected, is also a department of the Central University, and the dental student has the advan- tage of attending all or as many of the lectures and clinics of this institution as he ma - desire without additional charge. Should he conclude to take the degree of M. D. after his dental course is completed he will be all the better prepared for the requirements of that department. Many of the dental students have pursued this course, and have been graduated with the degrees of D. D. S. and M. D. So thorough is the teaching of the Principles and Practice of Dental Surgery in this col- lege that the graduate has no difficulty in passing the examining boards of those states where no dental de.gree is recognized, and many of the junior students have passed some of the hardest boards successfully. The Dental Infirmary has been fully equipped with operating chairs of the latest and most perfect design and with individual lockers for instruments. It is constantly crowded with all kinds of clinical material, offering the student the greatest variety and profusion of experi- ence. 36 ? ED. M. KETTIG, -M. D., D. D. S. H. HORACE GRANT, A. M., M.

Three of these colleges were iu operation prior to the opening term of the last year, and it only remained to open a College of Law in order to carry out the full requirements and provisions of the charter. The growth and prosperity of the University, and the increased demand on the part of the Alumni of the insti- tution were such that the Board of Curators decided that the most opportune time for the open- ing of the Law Department would be the first of October, 1.S97, and accordingly all necessary arrangements to this end were made. The faculty chosen was: William Chenault, LL.D.: J. ' . Logan. LL.D.: R. W. Miller, A.B., LL.B., and Miss Elizabeth F, Bowden, Instructor in Elocution and Oratory. William Chenault was made President of the Faculty. He was to be Professor of Ele- mentary Law, Pleading, Commercial Law, Real Property and Criminal Law. Dr. Logan was to take charge of the Department of Political Science and Economics, and Professor Miller was Instructor in the Department of Contracts, Torts, Evidence, Equit - and Corporations. With such a F " aculty as this how could the college fail to succeed and prosper? The cotirse of study was made elaborate, yet thorough, embracing Blackstoue ' s Commentaries, Lawson, Stephen, Biglow, Greenleaf and Norton on Contracts, Pleadings, Torts, E;videnc e and Bills and Notes, respectively, for the Junior Class, and Teideman on Real Property-, Barton ' s Suits in Equity, Bis]iham on Equity, Clark ' s Criminal Law, Tayor on Corporations, Economics and Politics iu the Senior Year. The methods of instruction are 133- recitation, lecture and case study, with frequent quizzes and reviews in the different studies of the course. The great aim is to impart both a theoretical and ])ractical knowledge (jf the law, and to fit the student for jiractice. Much use is made of the blackboard in drawing negotiable instruments, contracts, wills, leases, deeds, mortgages and other important documents, and in illustrating the principles of law involved in the lessons. The wisdom of opening the Law College soon became evident, for about twenty students have matriculated, and each one is receiving the best legal instruction to be obtained at any law college iu the South, . lready the l ' niversit ' court has been organized. It is made the forum for the discussion of questions of pleading and practice and the means of familiarizing the student with the routine of court work. Its judge, sheriff, clerk and law officers are required to prepare their records with legal accuracv. The court is so comlucted as to turnish special facilities for the study of practice in all its branches, including the preparation of briefs, pleadings and the drawing of all sorts of legal papers. Hard dail - stuch- of torts, contracts, etc., on the part of the Central University law stu- dents is preparing them for a future of usefulness in their profession. The first year of the Law College ' s existence is nearing a close, and it is with a feeling of pride that the friends of the University notice the splendid work that has been done. 4:: 43 chik SENIOR CLASS. k Motto— In omnibus vincinius.

All attempts of historians to give to the beginning of this class a definite place in the category of great world-movements have met with utter disaster, and all research among ancient records for ain- intimation regarding the advent of this class to a recognized position in the world ' s history have been miserably in vain. Prominent writers of History have propounded theory after theory, setting forth in apparently indisputable hypotheses their speculations as to the probable starting-point of ' gS ' s history, but, one by one, these theories have met with their overthrow and have been blown as " straight up " as was the lamented Maine in Havana harbor. Whence, then, is this Great Class? How came such a wonderful congregation of individuals, in whom we see the consumma- tion of human perfection ? While recorded history gropes about in darkness and despair for the broken cords of the misty past, and while scientific research advances her theories, but in vain, traditioyi is not idle, and it is from her that we are able to gain our only insight into the clouded beginnings of our history. Mere tradition, however, in the minds of the oldest members of the class, can not be relied upon to furnish us with the most satisfactory solution of this problem, but it is the only plausible assistance at our command, and to it we turn in our meagerness of facts, and try to establish the origin of the class of Ninety-eight- Tradition and legendary song have often been the means whereby the deepest historical mysteries are fathomed and have often provided a solution for the most perplexing historical enigmas. As it has been with many of the world ' s most important events, so it is with us: tradition is our onl}- guide. At an early date, surely not later than the nineteenth century of the Christian era. we are told that there was an uprising or rebellion in that ancient country of the Amazons, Madison Female Institute. From some cause or other— the tradition is not clear on this point — a colony or clan of the male population had been allowed to take up their abode within the confines of that very con- servative institution. As time went on this clan became a mighty factor in the government of the Institute: indeed, so potent a consideration did this clan become, that it was deemed necessary by the authorities in control of the institution to suppress, and, if need be, to ex- terminate, even to the last remnant, the tribe which had disturbed the peaceful calm of every- day life within the borders of the Hill. Accordingly the leaders of the revolt, Thomas Henri Pickels and Georgius Aestates Burnamus. were cast into prison and subjected to the most excruciating tortures. They were put to the rack in order that promises might be exacted from them that they would abandon the rebellion and renew their allegiance to the Crown of M. F. I.: but, the legend tells us, thej would have suffered death in anj ' of its most ignomin- ious forms rather than renounce the cause now so dear to their hearts. Unable to completely revolutionize Madison Institute and to make of it a school after their own ideas, the tradition has it that these two heroes of ' 98 prayed three times daily with their windows open toward 49 Cantral University Preparatory, with a hope that some day they would be released from the prison walls of M. F. I., and would be aisle to sit down with the " salt of the earth " in this atmosphere of freedom from educational tyrants, this land absolved from narrow-minded and old fogyish ideas of educational procedure. Their fondest hopes were at last realized, the goal of their ambition was reached, and with their entrance to the flowery gardens of Prepara- tory life begins the authentic period of Xinety-eight history. From the recent excavations made under the auspices of the " Arthur Hinds Educational Society " of Xew York, we have obtained many traces of the class, which are of the highest historical importance. Many powerful personages were de x-loped during that transitory stage of training known as the Preparatory. Alas ! Long since manj ' of these fathers of the class have passed to their reward in this world of woe, but their memory still lives as one of the brightest stars that twinkle on the horizon of fleeting j-ears. As a Freshman Class we showed to the world a most magnificent body of intellectual prodi- gies. It was at this time that we received into our number two noteworthy gentlemen, whom, in our onward march to the goal we now control, we met returning from the front, wearied and worn with the thunder of conflict and the clash of arms. Their names are too well known to need mention here, but for the sake of uniformity in this work, and to avoid too much material in the already voluminous appendix, I will say that they were Speed Smith and Warfield Bennett. The) ' are the pride of the class, the very embodiment of all that is lovely, and, moreover, they are the pets of the faculty, who have at last reluctantly consented to wrap them securel}- in a sheep-skin and send them to the British Museum, where future generations will look upon them and call them wonderful. But space will not permit us thus to dwell on individual members of our class. Nothing could be more pleasant, but it must suffice to say that during the Freshman and .Sophomore years we met and defeated " every form of man or beast " that Central University ' s faculty or any body else could furnish. Our final triumph came a short while ago. It was during that memorable " flag rush ' ' that we so completely vindicated Senior glory and so utterly annihilated the Class of ' 99 and its allies. Trouble had been brewing for a long time, and affairs between the two classes finally reached their culmination in a pitched battle. Our forces were completely victorious. Captain-General Smith urged his men on to a splendid victory by his burning eloquence. Coats were most gracefully ' " ripped up the back ' : black eyes were freely passed around; after all, as has been well said, we came off " " a little tired, but triumphant. " And now our task is finished. We have reached the line which marks the end of our course. We have not striven to enter an}- Bcii a i, for Central University is situated already in the midst of the " land of corn and wine, " and it would be folly for us to want to get away. Our days have been da ' s of profit and pleasure. Our lines have fallen in pleasant places. Our paths have been paths of peace. We are bound together by the ties of that friendship so peculiar to class-mates ; a friendship which will rebuke all ravages of change and of Fate, and shall defy the procession of years. The usual halo of Senior glory is about our Apollonic heads, but we believe that there is distinctly noticeable a lustre emanating from that halo that has not characterized the effulgence of the glory incident to Seniority of former times. If the sight dazzles you, dear reader, please look the other way while the class of Ninety- eight, its colors floating proudly over the scenes of its triumphs, its brilliancy of intellect known of all men, and its war-cry reverberating through hill and dale, passes on to take its place in the realm of history.

BEDIXGER Historian. 51 Junior MlgtoFj, - iN reviewing the histor ' of such a body as the Junior Class, the same old diffi- culty is met with that has been troubling historians ever since such personages have been in existence — namely, they do not know where to begin. However, on account of a limited space, this chronicle will contain only the achievements within the session 1897-98. At the beginning of the term when the boys began to gather in, after vaca- tion, here and there in the crowd could be noticed certain individuals conspic- uous for the look of absolute joy which o ' erspread their countenances. Upon Q being asked why so happy, they would answer: " We are Juniors and are exempt from drill. " and to an inquisitive Freshman or Prep, they would im- pressively add : " For two years we have carried the cold steel to the monotonous tune of hep ! hep ! but now comes the reward of duty well done, and that is rest, sweet rest ! " This has been verified by facts; for now, during drill hours, we lie in the shade and sympathize with the poor Sophomores and Freshmen toiling out in the sun. It was not long before the aggressive spirit of the Junior a ' serted itself in many different ways. They immediately took possession of T ie Central News, and in a short while the acting editor of The Atlantis (who, by the way, was a Senior), perceiving the aptness of Juniors for such undertakings, resigned in favor of one of its members. Not contented in following the strait and narrow path of our predecessors, the Class of ' gg decided to lioist their class flag over the college. This was a deed never dared by a Junior Class since the founding of the institution, and when the full meaning of it dawned upon us we realized that beyond a doubt we would meet with opposition on the part of that haughty band — the Seniors. At first we were at a loss as to how we should overcome this obstacle, but presently some one called attention to the fact that timidity was pre-eminent in the natures of the individuals composing the Senior Class, and that if we had some means of making an unusually loud noise they would withdraw without a struggle. Being unable to obtain fire-crackers, we took the best things that presented themselves, and they were a couple of guns loaded with blank cartridges. Thus equipped, we proceeded to the main building with the flag. We were not mistaken in our conjecture about being interrupted, for scarcely had we reached the top story of the college when the sound of many footsteps on the stairway warned us of the approaching enemy. All was in readiness, and we breathlessly waited for the crisis. Suddenly they came into full view on the last turn of the stairway: the guns were fired, and then came a sound which made us think the building was falling in: it was made by 52 the Seniors falling over each other in their mad race down the stairs. Even when the open air was reached, thinking that they were pursued, they did not stop running until they had reached the dormitory, over one hundred yards away. This would be a good joke to tell on some innocent Freshmen or Preps , but for Seniors to be so frightened by two blank car- tridges that they rolled down four flights of steps, swearing they were shot, it is almost incredible. As the sun rose the next morning the first thing lighted by its rays was the flag of ' 99, waving serenel}- in the gentle breeze. We will saj " , to the credit of the Seniors, that about noon the flag was cut down and a flag rush ensued, after which, as a compromise, the flag was given to the Law School and the Preparatory Department. Lieutenant ' estal recognizing the war-like propensities of our class, and, wishing to organize an artillery company, in order to be prepared to attend to the Spaniards when it should finally be decided that they needed attending to, invited the members of the Junior Class to fill the positions. The class, realizing that it was a time for heroic measures, volun- teered in a body, and it is needless to say that a better artillery company can not be found outside of the standing army. As for victories won on the gridiron, diamond and track, we can only say " they are too numerous to mention, " and pass them by for the present. To show something of the literary ability in our ranks it is onlv necessary to call atten- tion to the fact that three of the four publications of the University are conducted by mem- bers of the Class of ' 99. As for debaters, orators, essayists, etc., we have no end of them. For the future we predict nothing but success, for with such a patriotic generator of college spirit as " Tommy Jones, from Arkansas, " at one end of the line, and such a level- headed old philosopher as " Patriarch " Allen at the other, no class could make a failure.

We have a great subject, too big for a small book, too long for a short speech, and just the dimensions, intellectual, moral and physical, of the grandest class of Central University, the Sophs., that has ever presented itself to the procession of the years that punctu- ate the history of this great institution. What a pictograph ! Hieroglyph if you like it better. It is not only picturesquish, but truly picturesque, and has a picturesqueness that asso- ciates the beautiful and the sublime. Who can tell, after this wonderful class percolates, sophisticates or is strained, individually and collectively, through two future chap- ters of its histor}- — the Junior and Senior — and is sprayed, as it were, into and through all the avenues of the future life of its members, what a magnificent spectacle of human greatness will be exhibited to the world ! What a constellation of worthies ! ! Stars of first-class twink- lers and suns (sons) which give forth X-rays! ! ' . Oh ! it makes the Soph. ' s bosom swell v.-ith delight and his heart leap for joy. While the several features of the pictograph — first, tlie fine morale; second, the extraordi- nary raantal capacity, and third, the superb physique — are engaging all the admiration you are capable of there shall flash out from the combine a vision exceedingly attractive, yea, aston- ishing—the indescribable p iiz. of the inimitable Soph. Now the Sophomore is sophomoric, sopholistic and egotistic — and some more. He is a Merman Dugong; herbivorous, as he admires the vegetable world and likes watermelons; carnivorous, as he admires the animal creation and is fond of roast beef, and is cetaceous, as he has some idea of being a whale amongst men and takes to fried fish. He is predatory, is disposed to prey on melon patches, orchards and the like ; is religious, as he adores God, 55 worships woman, and, in extremes and some otlier circnmstances, he prays. He is some times rough and tough, does not mind a fisticuff and excels in bluff. He is an expanded and swollen Freshman, a conceited Sophomore, and conscientiously so ; a sedate Junior and a sobered up Senior. If anything more, he is a full-blooded Soph-or-more. Do not forget, viz.: he inhales knowledge, imb ibes wisdom, and absorbs folly, and is, therefore, a i.-. ' ise fool. So the individual, so the splendid class. Who shall write its history? It has written history, is writing history, and will continue to make history. It gathered last September in force, armed and equipped for the battle, bravely met the lions (professors) of the " Central, " fought nobly to the end, bitter or sweet, as may be, to one or the other; it scaled the ramparts of knowledge; assailed the gate of wisdom: battered down difficulties; charged all obstacles, and pressed forward to victory. Its campaign history may be written ' eni I ' idi, ' ici. Its march has been marked by divers marks, laurels, wreaths and thorns, and if any of its mem- bers have fallen by the way let it be remembered that " Men may rise on stepping-stones ol their dead selves to better things. " Let them rest in peace now and rise in September and renew the conflict- Now this class is the soul of the University, and the University is the heart of the Com- monwealth. As the rich blood pours from the veins into the heart, deploys and detours through the lungs, returns in rosj ' current to carry through the arteries life, health and strength to the body, so the youth of the country shall seek the bosom of this great institu- tion — their Alma Mater— partake freely of all her advantages, and she shall, with responsive pulse, answer the demands of the social, civil and political necessities of the state, and with her rich fruitage of noble Sophs, fill her chairs, benches and legislative halls, and we shall not fear that old " Kaintuck " shall ever die of heart failure.

Some of us had gained our highest hope on entering into college proper, having been recommended from Prep., while others were making their first lunge into college life ; torn from the fond embrace of loving mothers to be buried deep in the dark and drear}- depths of dormitory beds and biscuits. We shall never forget the dread and trembling footsteps with which we approached the all-ominous, all-powerful Secretary to ascertain the course most advisable for us to pursue, and how, with quivering hands, we signed our names and addresses. This done, a sigh of relief escaped from ye Freshmen. Then we cautiously proceeded down town to buy new, clean books, making resolutions at every step to be economical, studious and athletic, and to possess ever ' other attribute necessary to be an ideal college man. Then it was we realized that there were other classes in college. They have punctured us, they have hoodooed us, they have jonahed us, until this da} ' , but nobly we have borne it all. Oh, ye upper classmen ! how long will you abuse our patience and remind us of our tenderness? From that instant when first you saw us you have tried in every way to force us to admire your intellectual i[ualities and to impress us with our ignorance and lack of culture. But in spite of all these rebuffs we have held our heads high and have succeeded in proving to every one that the class of 1901 is the class of Central Universit ' . Only on one occasion was the dignity of our class shaken — when we cut Dr. Akers ' class in order to organize and elect officers. That venerable follower of ' oltaire is passionately fond of us, and, rather than be cheated of our society for an hour, decided that it was essential to our welfare and his pleasure to meet him at English on each succeeding Saturday. This " blow almost killed father, " for we like to ha -e some rest. But, as the doctor is gradually growing older, we decided that it would l)e judicious and reverential to obey him and let our dignity suffer. Thus it is that we have passed through our first -car, submitting only to our superiors, and are ever anxious to raise the standard of our class and Alma Mater.

CROOKE ■ Critic T. P. SCOTT Censor E. A. WALLACE Sergeant-at-Arms J.E.ABBOTT Chaplain t ' go HISTORY OF THE EFIFHYLLIDIAN UNION. " " (S) t — e has been twenty-four years since the Epiphyllidian Union was organized, and during her career she has won for herself manj- honors. When we come to give a history of our work of ' gy- ' gS we will begin by saying, that when the first roll was called in September, nearly all of the old members were there to answer to their names, and before we adjourned quite a number of new men were enrolled. It is with pride that we look back over the past year ' s work, for we have worked hard and have some- thing to show for it. The great interest taken in oratory, debates, declamations, etc., has been very commendable indeed. At a contest held in the College Chapel, on the 22nd of February, between the Epps. and Phils., Mr. G. W. Hunter, a member of the Epiphyllidian Union was chosen to represent the University in the Kentucky Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest, held at Lexington, Ky., April ist. In that contest Mr. Hunter defeated the four other Kentucky Colleges and captured a prize for which we have so long been striving. The Epps., as well as the college in general, should and do feel proud of Hunter, because he has won for them what no other representative has ever been able to win. In all the other contests the Epps. have been well represented. To my mind the literary society should form an important feature of everj ' college man ' s life, for in it he learns the elements of parliamentary law, the art of debating the great ques- tions of the day, and it is also there that he is drilled in oratory, and learns to appreciate its merits. A well-directed spirit of rivalry between our sister societies does much to stimulate our men to better work and to nobler efforts, and this raises higher our standard of literary attainments, and more generally cultures and forms the mind of the individual. I would, then, urge upon every young man, when commencing his college career, to connect himself with one of the literary societies, seek to be loyal to it, and bring honors and usefulness to its illustrious history. Among the reminiscences of old students we find some of the most intensely interesting ones are connected with experience in the literary societies, and many of them tell us that the inspiration received there continued with them through life. Let us, then, sustain our beloved old Epiphyllidian Union, and long ma} ' her banner wave, on which is inscribed, " Give me wisdom, the greatest gift of the gods. " Historian. 91 G. W.

HETTS Censor m 94 i f ISTORY OF THE PHILALETHEAN UNION (EPTEMBER of ' 97 found Philalethea with a fairly large membership, though we missed many familiar faces. We also found our sister society in fine fonn, and a lively rush for members followed from which sprang the friendly rivalrj ' that has done much to make the work of both societies a success. The year was scarcely begun when the society passed through an ordeal that threatened to overthrow it, but which has since proven a refining process in which the dross was lost. This ordeal served only to draw us closer together and strengthen our determination. The literary work has been unusually good, and there has scarcely been a Friday night which we can not look back upon with pleasure. As a result of the good work, the society has won her share of the contests, and at all times acquitted herself with credit. Philalethea extends to Epiphyllidea her congratulations upon the victory of her repre- sentative, who won the Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Medal. In the debate between Centre College and Central University, in which a representative from each society took part. C. U- was victorious. These victories illustrate the high stand- ard of C. U. ' s literar} ' work. The aim of our societ ' is to assist the faculty in graduating men — men in the fullest sense of the word — and the hearty co-operation of that body tells us, in actions stronger than words, that we have not failed in our purpose The past glory of Philalethea shines down upon us, an example which we strive to excel ; but greater than our pride in her past, is our hope for her future and our determination to make her success a precedent to those who follow us. A word here in regard to the inter-society work would not be out of place. The good feeling and rivalry that exists between the societies is unprecedented. Forgetting all save mutual benefit, they ha e labored with and for each other in a manner which has been pro- ductive of great results. The value of literary work is inestimable. It is an essential part of the education of every well-rounded man. Some wise man has told us that " reading makes a full man, writing an exact man, and speaking a read ' man. " Since literary work embraces all three of these exercises, one can conceive something of its importance. Knowing that much more might be said, and with a feeling that his dut - is but imper- fectly performed, the historian submits his history. HISTORIAN. 95 YOUNG MEN ' S CHRISTIAN ASSOCIATION. OFFICERS.

HE first English-speaking Young Men ' s Christian Associatio n was organized in London in 1844, and the first Associations in America, at Boston and Montreal in 1S51. The Intercollegiate movement dates from 1S77, when there were onlv fifteen college associations. Since that time the work has rapidly progressed, and has lieen a wonderful power for good among the young men of our colleges. For some time before the year 18S3, weekly prayer-meetings were conducted by the students of the University. In that year an effort was made by Mr. C. K. Ober, the International Col- lege Secretar -, to organize a Young Men ' s Christian Association among the students, but he was not at the time successful. However, a little later, some of the students, realizing the bene- fits to be deri ed from such an Association, organized the present Association. Since then the work has been carried steadily on. As the needs of the Association demanded, and as oppor- tunity presented itself, new departments of work have been added. The definite aim of the Association is to bring the young men of the University to Christ, and all its energies are directed towards this object. Its work is organized into departments, which are under the guidance and direction of committees. The new students are met at the train by a committee of Association members, who assist them iu every wa - iiossible to get comfortably settled and ready for the year ' s work. They are directed to boarding-houses, assisted in the arrangement of their studies, and in manv other wa s made to feel at home. Then, on the first Friday night after College opens, a recep- tion is gi en to the students by the ladies of Richmond in the Association room. The room, which has been neatl ' furnishetl by the ladies, is beautifully decorated for the occasion. After music and speeches of welcome by the ministers of the town and the members of the Faculty, refreshments are served, and the new students have an excellent opportunity to meet all those present. On the following Sinida - afternoon a meeting is held, at which all the new students are given a chance to connect themseh ' es with the Association, and the names of those who wish to join are enrolled. The value of this fall campaign can not be overestimated, as the student who starts right is more easily influenced for the right than one who does not take a stand at the beginning of his college career. Everv Sunday afternoon gospel services are held in the Association Room, conducted usually by one of the students. Frecjuently during the session the Association has the pleasure of being addressed by visiting ministers and prominent speakers. The ministers of the town also take an acti ' e interest in the members of the Association. One of the most important departments of the work is the s stem of Bible classes, carried Oil among the members of the Association. The aim of these classes is to stimulate daily, 98 systematic study of the Bible by the students of the University. There are usually three or four of these classes, each one led by a member of the Association who is especially qualified for this work. The Reading Room, supplied with the leading periodicals, religions and secular, is another important feature. Here the student may spend a portion of his spare time very profitably. In connection with the Reading Room is the nucleus of a library of missioiiary books, which is to be gradually increased, as the Association has funds for this purpose. During the present collegiate year two members were sent to the meeting of the State Association at Maysville, two were sent to the meeting of the Student Volunteer Movement at Cleveland, Ohio, and it is hoped that the Association may be able to send two delegates to the Southern Students ' Summer School at Asheville, N. C, in June. The stimulus given to the work of the Association by the members who have attended these meetings in previous vears has been wonderful. The Association has done more and better work during the present collegiate year than ever before in its histor3 Although the fruits of the work may not appear great to us, yet in the eyes of God, who seeth all things, we do not doubt that the labors of the Association iir behalf of the young men of Central University have not been in vain. 99 ud:33iaiii-- COLLEGE VIEWS. pEibli©ati(D THE CREAM AND CRIMSON, Pl ' BIJSHED AXNTALLV liV THE SENIOR Cl.ASS OF CENTRA!, University, Richmond, Kv.

MILITARY. k In 1S92, Hon. J. R. McCreary, the Representative from this District, applied to the AVar Department to assign an officer of the regular army as Instructor of Military Science and Tac- tics at Central University. This request was granted, and First Lieutenant V. H. Sage, of the Twent3 ' -third Infantry, U. S. A., vas appointed to the position. I ' nder his direction two com- panies of infantry were organized and drilled. At the opening of the next collegiate ' ear Capt. Henry Wygant, of the Twenty-fourth Infantry, was detailed for duty here. Captain ' ygant did very much to increase the efficiencv of the Military ' Department. Regular recitations in Tactics were required of the cadet officers, and the drill was made more strict. He arranged the first of the annual outings of the Bat- talion, which are a source of so much enjoyment to the cadets. At his suggestion, sponsors were elected bj ' the companies, thus increasing the pride of the cadets in their companies. In 1S95 he obtained two cannon from the War Department and organized a battery. Captain Wygant was popular with the residents of Richmond, as well as with the students in general. In March, 1897. First Lieutenant S. P. ' estal, of the Seventh Cavalry, assumed command of the Battalion, which he found in excellent condition, owing to the superior abilities of Cadet Captain R. W. Stephenson, who, as Senior Captain of the Battalion, was placed in charge of the Military Department by the Faculty. Lieutenant Vestal was well prepared for the place, having been Commandant of De Pauw University for some t ime before he came here. He is already popular with the cadets, and has introduced a number of improvements in the drill. Under his direction, plans have been laid for organizing a Zouave Company and a ca ' alry troop. The Ijenefits derived from the militar ' drill are numerous. One of the liest of these results is the improved carriage of the student ' s body. Another is the quickness with which the students obey instructions, ac(|uired from oljeying the commands of the oflicers during drill. Every citizen should have some training in the rudiments of military science, so that in case of war or insurrection he can be immediately called upon to assist the authorities in their duties. There is no better time for him to acquire this training than while he is in college. For this reason, especially. niilitar - instruction in our institutions of learning should be encouraged. :r r 1 iira Central University Athletic Association, R. E. ADAMS President. J. V.

Soon after the establishment of the game in the South, our Faculty recognized that it was a man s game; that it develops the player, body and mind, as no other game can do; that it, cultivates in him a spirit of firmness, of self-restraint and a spirit of plucky resistance, and it was this above all games that requires a clear, cool head and a quick, accurate judg- ment. In -iew of these facts, the} ' have always encouraged us in every way possible. The students of Central University are only too glad to say that foot ball now .stands on a firmer basis than ever before, and that it has come to stay. The work of Central ' s team on the " gridiron " has been of a style such as all admire. Until this year she has won the majority of all games played. Last fall, at the opening of the session, the boys were simph ' carried into ecstacy at the prospects of the ' 97 team, for six of our best pla3 ' ers had returned, and the new material was of such a type as to make the heart of a veteran beat with joy. Our coach, Mr. A. M. Frew, who was formerl}- from Boston, Mass., and had played on several of the large Eastern teams for the last two years, has been in Louisville, Ky., attend- ing the medical college and also playing quarter back on the L. A. C. team, where he has shown up as a star player. Mr. Frew proved himself not only a competent coach, but a gen- tleman in every respect. But when the umpire ' s whistle pealed forth its shrill notes annouiicing that it was time for the sturdy young athletes to try to override their opponents, and, by backing the theo- retical training by the brawn of muscle, carry the " pig-skin " over the much-coveted goal to a victory, it was discovered that there was too much individual playing and not enough team work. To this lack of team work we can conscientiously attribute most of our defeats, for looking at our men individually, one could not find a more powerful, fleet or determined set of young athletes in the South. It would be ineffectual to discuss the sterling qualities of the individual members of the team after our record of ' 97. Although several of our ' Varsity team graduate this year and will not represent the University on the field an} ' more, yet a pulsation of joy courses through their breasts when they realize that they are leaving behind them men who are able to, and, we feel sure, will, carry the standard of " old C. U. " on to glorv and victorv. 115 FOOT BALL T5AM OF ' 97, A. M. FRP:W Manager G. K. SPEED Captain S. E. BOOKER ; Center CHARLES ANSCHUTZ Left Guard ED. WALKER Right Guard J. V.

Central has always stood very high in this line, every year putting a creditable team iu the field. Our team of ' 93 is one worthy of special mention; it was one of the " gilt-edge " order, being composed probably of the finest lot of college bjU-players ever collected in Kentucky. The team played in nearly every section of the State, and in every game came off wearing the crown of victory. In the spring of ' 97 the Kentucky colleges recognized that the interest in base-ball had reached a very low ebb, and that some steps must be taken to revive the proper spirit. Accordingly a meeting was called, to which the several institutions sent delegates. At this meeting was formed a league called the Kentnckv Intercollegiate Base-ball Association, embracing the five leading colleges of Kentucky, viz., Centre College, Kentucky University, Georgetown College, State College and Central University. The formation of this league has produced the desired effect, for now at every contest is to be seen a large crowd of enthu- siastic admirers of the " national game, " ever ready to give their assistance and encourage- ment to their representative team. Last year we were unfortunate in having only one pitcher to do all our twirling, and this probably fully accounts for our team only ranking third at the end of the season. We are proud to say that the material of the team of ' 98 is far superior to any that has represented us since the spring of 93, and that if the present prospects are maintained Cen- tral University will be second to none in the race for the intercollegiate pennant, for she has been victorious in all the games played thus far this season (JMay 17th), and is now leading the race with a standing of 1000 per cent, having already defeated two of the strongest teams in the league — State College and Centre College. The State College game was won by a score of 10 to 4, and in the best game ever played on Central University ' s grounds our old- time rival. Centre College, was defeated by a score of 1 1 to o. The series of three games with the University of Tennessee, at Knoxville, resulted in three successive victories for our team, the third game being forfeited to us on account of the failure of the University of Tennessee ' s team to make their appearance upon the field.

We have been very fortunate in always having on hau ' i some very fine material. In 1S93 the Kentucky colleges formed a league known as the Kentucky Intercollegiate Athletic Association, under whose auspices are held, at Lexington, Ky., Annual Field Day Meets. Out of the five meets that have been held Central University has won four, in all of which she has won more points than all the other colleges combined. A few years ago the colleges of the Southern States formed a Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association, in whose hands Track Athletics receive special consideration. Cen- tral University is one of the charter members of this association, and is the onh- Kentucky college bearing this distinction. We have alwaxs made a creditable showing in the Southern Field Day contests. These meets have always been held at Nashville, Tenn., and we regret very much that it has been changed this year to A-tlanta, Ga., for this makes the expense so great that it is not judicious for us to send any representatives, and doubly do we regret this, for never before have we had such a promising set of young athletes as will compose the team this vear. i UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC RECORDS. 100 Yards Dash — W, Montgomery, 10 2-5 seconds. 220 Yards — C.

The distant town clock, in deep, distinct strokes, was striking, strangely loud and impress- ive, the hour of ten. And as its tones, sounding in contrast with the universal stillness, were borne forth upon the quiet air of an ideal May night, they aroused a young man from a deep stupor, almost, as it might seem, from a trance. This young man, Joseph Ward by name, had, until this hour, been sitting at his study-table, a Latin lexicon before him, a Horace in one hand and with the other applying a cigar to his mouth at various intervals. Though he sat there holding in his hand the remnant of his third cigar for that night, and before him la - books awaiting the preparation of to-morrow ' s lessons, yet his thoughts were not upon things about him or on to morrow ' s lessons. Had }ou known Joe for several years as I had, could yon have been present on that night and looked into those brown eyes and noted the expression upon that handsome face, you would not have asked of him, " Where are your thoughts ? " Almost three years ago, he had left a beautiful home, a devoted father and mother and a dear, sweet sister, to enter upon his college life. He had graduated, with the honors of his class, in the high school of his native town, and entering upon his college course as a Sopho- more, bid fair to gain honors there ; and although he had not been able to lead his class, he had taken a high standing, and no student was more loved and better respected by his class- mates and teachers than Joe. Following hard after the advice of his father and mother, pos- sessing an inherent self-pride, and ha -ing always about him an air of manly dignity and . ' ■el - respect, he was more than an ordinary young man. He was now a Senior and within onh ' a few weeks of the goal of his college career. I ' ntil very recently he had denied himself the pleasures of society in order that there might be noth- ing in the way of his being successful in his classes. But only a few weeks prior to the night above mentioned, his Sunday-school teacher, Mrs. Drake, had invited him to take tea at her home. There it was that he ha d met the one who had been the nucleus of his thoughts ever since. She, Miss Alberta Thornton, was a niece of Mrs. Drake ' s, and had come to spend several months with her aunt. She was one of those whom to know is to love, for she pos- sessed a face fair to look upon, dark brown eyes and wavy auburn hair, and always preserved her womanly grace and dignity. Is it any wonder that she should be Joe ' s first love? Now, Joe had made repeated calls upon Miss Alberta, since first he had met her, but never a word had he whispered of his love and admiration of her. Certainlj- she could know nothing, except what slie might iufer from his repeated calls and from the polite attention he had sho%vn her. But other boys had shown her equally as much attention, and in fact one, Howard Green, even more. Miss Alberta, sensitive of the fact that she was a visitor, and that it was onlv customary that young men see that visiting young ladies do not want for at- tention, had only thought that the boys meant to be sociable. But with poor Joe it was different. His pure heart had been touched. His ideal of true womanhood had been realized. And along with his ardent love, prisoned within his own bosom, was the fact that Howard Green, his classmate, yet inferior in ability and true manly 1 7 qualities, was receiving, as it seemed to him. her entire attention. Thoughts of this nature were coursing through his brain as lie sat there in his room on this beautiful Ma}- night, watching the smoke curl from his cigar. When he had but finished saying " Man ' s fondest hopes are but as ashes, " the striking or the clock awakened him to the fact that the hour for him to retire was at hand. He threw his book upon the table, repeating to himself " Fire consumes, but does not destroy. " He made preparations to retire, but, realizing that he was nervous and excited, that his brain was throbbing and feverish, he decided that a short walk in the night air would quiet his nerves and refresh his wearied brain. He took his hat and walked out into the college campus. For a moment he could not but be impressed with the beauties of nature arouiul him. The golden moon, just peeping from behind one of the college buildings, shone down among the stately maples, which every- where added beauty to the campus, causing them to cast long, dark shadows over the delight- ful walks and drives. The moon was so intenselv bright that only here and there a star appeared to dispute with her the sovereignty of the night. On the far-off country road he heard the rumbling of carriage wheels growing fainter and fainter. To his left, toward the city, two house dogs were exchanging barks, and out and in among the maples darted bats as if pursued by some enemy. It would seem, with nature so strangeh ' beautiful, one could not desist from engaging in pleasing reflections. But soon even all these things escaped his notice, and he walked on heedless, it seemed, to all about him. But soon he stepped I He heard a sound ! Some one was coming ! He sprang aside that he might conceal himself in the shade of the leafy maples. Slowly they approached. And lo ! when the moonlight fell full upon their faces, who should it be but Alberta and Howard? The sight of Alberta ' s beauti- ful face, the ardent love imprisoned within his breast and his envy of Howard, caused him for the moment to lose his self-control. He sprang between them, .shoved Howard back, and stared upon him with a fixed gaze, his face, in the moonlight, showing pale as death. Alberta, recognizing Joe, sprang between the two and uttered with a trembling -oice : " Be men ! " Her distressed face and her womanly entreaty were enough. Joe could not stand this. His heart was touched. He turned, and walking rapidl - away, hastened to his room. Think of one so pure, so truly a man, so desirous ot doing what is right at all times, and you can imagine what must have been Joe ' s remorse upon reflection of his rash conduct. He waited for Howard to return and explained all, thus showing his true Christian character. Early the next morning he called at Mrs. Drake ' s and apologized to Miss Alberta for his un- gentlemanly behavior. And this stanza the rest explains : " (.)ut of darkness into light. Out of wrong into right. Out of weakness into might. Safe iiito the kingdom of love. " I. F.

What floods of memory come sweeping back Upon me, till with them I seem to be Overwhelmed. Yet, as I gaze on this track Of time. That I so swift have traversed, many a scene Presents itself, and, properly presented, ought To make stoics laugh and to be by poets fraught With rhyme. And ofttimes when some new-fangled drill Was introduced, addled, we all commands forgot, And meandered ' round, — ah, I see them still! — O ' er the campus, like a frightened lot Of sheep. And now The room about me darker grows; the place Is the old attic ; the Juniors, with brow- Determined, gun in hand, with face Not fair To look upon, sit waiting, silent, and then A loud report shakes all the air around. And, oh, what a fall there was, my countrymen, When that mighty host of Seniors fell down The stair ! Now, once more The scene changes. Awhile the flag serenely floats Observed by such a mob as ne ' er before Was seen. As falls the flag, the Senior gloats With glee. So vividly I see again that sight That my reverie seems to be no pleasant dream, But some unwelcome spectre of the night. Verily, wrapt in son;e uightnnire I seem To be. While thus I roam The fields of long ago. I thought of sighs And tears and joys, and of my wife and home, And wonder what within my pathway lies Ahead. And now again I stand in ranks and hear the sonorous " Hep, " Or, hearing some oue shout • ' Fall in, " then Looked for something to fall into; the step I could not keep. While thus the fire burned and I mused, lo! My reverie was broken by a sound that sent A thrill through nie, and then nu ' Cicero, Unread, from the floor I took, yawned, and went To bed. — o tn E. Abbott. 131 A ERRIBLE " " ■ EXPERIENCE. ' Twas niidiii.ulit ; the lightning flashed, the thunder roared, the rain fell in torrents; the storm swept on at a terrific rate. In the dark I groped in search of sh elter and unable to find it, I fell down from exhaus. tion and in despair. I felt oppressed by a heavy weight resting on my abdominal region: my head was in a whirl and at last I became unconscious of my surroundings; suddenly a loud clap of thunder partially aroused me, and, realizing my position, I made desperate efforts to relieve myself; I grappled at the muddy earth and every sinew was taxed to its utmost in mv attempt to crawl from beneath my heavy burden ; but it was all in vain. During my struggles I liad reached the brink of an abyss ; the loose overhanging ground around me gave away, and now I felt myself whirling with increasing momentum through the seemingly bottomless chasm ; — down, down, I went; — I was wild with terror, and gave vent to a demoniacal yell, which seemed to echo and re-echo mockingly. Violently I landed, with a dull thud, ui)()n the sharp, jagged rocks at the bottom, bleeding, mangled and torn; and — then I woke up. Regaining full consciousness, I found myself h ' ing on the floor, with the bedclothes tightlv in my grasp, and covered with cold perspiration ; I felt myself to ascertain to what extent I had been injured; much to my relief, I became aware of the fact that I was safe and sound. I was mystified as to what had been the cause of all this, and then it dawned upon me that the night before I had partaken heartily of a supper princijially composed of Dormitory liard-boiled eggs and biscuits, A.

A TRAGEDY IN FIVE ACTS. Act. I. It was Ma) ' . The campus was beautiful, with its carpet of green and the maples all in full leaf. The eyes of the students sought longingly the refreshing flecks of deep shade here and there, and manj a laz) ' form lay stretched, regardless of approaching examinations, full length upon the soft, cool grass. Tom had just remarked to his neighbor, while they Ijoth lay resting in one of the choicest spots on the campus, that a new girl had just arrived at De Wint ' s, to spend the commence- ment season. This remark hardly caused the laz) ' form to move, but b v and by he roused suf- ficiently to take some interest in the matter, and asked her name. " Oh, I haven ' t heard her name yet, Tom replied: but she ' sail right. Gay as a lark and can dance all the figures. " " I ' m deuced glad of that, " said the other, " for of all things under the sun for a freeze, commend me to a slow girl at conrmencement. " " You spoke a proverb, then, (ieorge, " rejoined his companion, " and, by the way, I told them we ' d be around this eve. You haven ' t any other date, have you? " He was assured that no previous engagement was in the way, and .so after settling some little preliminaries, they were called away to class by the bell, which just then sounded the third period. Act II. The door-bell rang at the DeWiuts ' , and two young gentlemen were announced — Messrs. George Donnelly and Thomas Ripley. They were ushered into the hand.some parlor of the DeWint mansion, and deposited themselves in the soft cushion chairs under the eyes of some famous old ancestors staring at them from the wall, who had helped to settle Keiituck -, and who had occupied high and responsible positions in church and state. In a few minutes the Misses DeWint, the beauties of the town, came in with all the fuss of crinoline and smell of perfume possible, and with them brought their fair visitor, Miss Polly McXabb. The boys were no less dumfounded at the name than they were utterly chagrined at her appearance. She was not at all the girl they had imagined. She was not prett}-, rather stout, but had a sort of roguishness about the expression of her e} ' es that always claimed a second glance from the beholder as though he had overlooked something. " Ah ! thought George, she ' s no good. Not worth the trouble. " However, as they became better acquainted with her, she grew on them more and more, 135 and in spite of themselves they felt that they were being drawn powerfull ' under the influence of her sparkling wit and generous good humor. She was a fine talker, had been, the Lord only knows where not : and could tell the most interesting things of places and people. In spite ot " their first impression, the boy.s were struck with her, and she was in a fair wa}- to win their un- sophisticated hearts on the first attack, when the sound of the clock from an adjoining room admonished them that the time for departure was at hand. They took leave of the girls at the front door, and George could not resist the temptation to give the plump warm hand he held an affectionate little squeeze, and was almost transported with secret joy as he felt the return of the pressure of Miss Polly ' s hand. " She ' ll do prett} ' well, " remarked Tom as they stopped to light a cigarette when they reached the avenue. " Oh, yes, she ' s fair, fair to middling, as they say, ' ' replied the other, and the conversation turned upon the game of ball to be played with Danville the next Saturday. Act III. " CAMPUS, Ma - i8. — Miss McNabb, will you allow me the pleasure of a call this evening at eight? Yours respectfully, George Donnelly. " " lOOI AvENl ' E. " I shall I)e pleased to receive Mr. Donnelly this evening at eight. " Eighteenth (if May. • Very respectfully, Mls.s McXabb. " At 8:15 Mr. George Donnelly was seated in the most uncomfortable chair in the DeWint parlor, seeking in vain to find a comfortable attitude and strike a pose that would carry con- viction to the heart of Miss Polly. She was slow, Init like Christmas, she finally came. She had somehow or other improved her looks, and George began to think she was now middling to prime. The hours sped rapidly; the piano was called in as an able ally, and the sweet voice of the girl as she sang some simple songs, with lots of meloih ' Init less of sense, struck the ten- derest chords in the heart of the young man and brought him to the verge of destruction. He caught her hand, and — but the door just then flew open, and in stepped the elder Miss DeWint with a tray of confections, among which was some chocolate candy, which he was assured had been made by the hands of the fair Polh ' herself. " Cand}-, the dickens! ' ' thought George, but he ate some and chatted with the two girls the best a boy can when his heart is about to burst with pent-up passion. Miss DeWint failed utterly to see that she was de trap, and, finally, seeing how things were going, George rose and began to bow himself out of the room- Miss McNalib had diplomacy enough to man- age the situation, and, with some little remark about something she didn ' t want him to forget, passed over to him and out with him to the jiorch. The same little comedy, or what not, was enacted as on a former occasidu, the young blood boiled and the heart beat like the valve in an air pump. Act I ' . The moon is shining on the campus, an l here and there are couples of young folk walking, gayly chatting and laughing. There is one couple, however, that is not saying much. The young man seems preoccupied, and the young lad -, weary of carrying on a one-sided conversa- tion, has been for some time vainly trying to count the trees, and also see who it is the oung Miss DeWint has in tow. Finally a rather secluded spot is reachetl and the two stop. George .seems to be bracing himself for an attack tipon the little citadel, which he hopes will surrender at ' 36 discretion after a very short siege. " The moon ' s mighty pretty to-night, don ' t you think ? " he observed. This was about the fourth or fiftli time he had made this remark. She did not remind him of that fact, however, but merely repHed that she ' d seen one just like it before, but that it was pretty none the less. There was a knowing carelessness about the girl that rather puzzled George, but he was determined now to go ahead at all hazard. After trying several plans of assault, and not getting the least assistance in his distress, he at length made a bold attack, risking all in this first terrilile charge. " Miss McNabb, " he said, " I have been madly in love with you for over a week. Life seems a burden without you. Can ' t you love me ? Won ' t you be mine? Say you ' ll be mine. Polly, and I ' ll be the happiest man in the world? " " Suppose I say so, and what then? ' ' " Why, then, we ' ll get married. " " Yes, I know, aud what then ? " " Oh, we ' ll go to the West, build us a cottage, and we ' ll grow " " Up with the jack rabbits, I guess. " He looked at her with an expression full of the blankest blank astonishment that ever was depicted on a boy ' s face. " Xow, look here, Mr. Donnelly, I can not marry you ; it is out of the question ; it is utterly impossible. " He fell to his knees and implored her, why ? in the name of Heaven, ichy ' " Oh, " she sobbed, " it is too sad, too sad even to think about ; but your feet, Mr. Donnelly, your feet are not mates. ' ' A cloud passed over the moon and a chill}- breeze swept over the campus. The young couples began to saunter homeward. The elder Miss DeWint acted as convoy to Miss McNabb as the ' returned, and it was a sin to have to hold their laughter in, Ijut never mind ! The walls of the old room echoed for an hour after all the rest of the house had sunk into per- fect quiet. Act ' . Two boys are lying lazily under tlie trees in the campus. The yellow sunshine draws fantastic arabesques here and there beneath the trees, the bumble bees are humming about from place to place, the whole world seems hot, languishing and sleep -. " Well, George, how do you like Miss McNabb by this time ? You ' ve been giving her a pretty stead}- rush for the past few days? " " Pshaw! she ' s no good, " in a tone of utter contempt, " She ' s not in it, I never did like her from the first I ' ' wSilence ensued for a few minutes. Then George, who had been looking intently at his feet, turned suddenly to his companion: " Are your feet mates, Tom? " " Wh} ' , of course not ; one ' s a right and the other ' s a left I ' " Well, I ' ll be darned ! " He rolled over, with a sigh of relief, but it was too late now. Exeunt oinnes.

A Sophomore. 139 Closely resembling the social life of most large institutions of learning, where there is a spirit of conviviality and that pleasant friendliness of congenial souls; where the intellectual stimulus is not the sole stinnilus; and where the psychological, the metaphysical and philo- sophical is the only environment of the University man, is the social life at Central; but at the same time it has its distinctive and characteristic features; it is founded upon no " according to Hoyle " rules or principles, it is more a society or social life, evolved rather than founded. The transient state of things at the " IT " is responsible to a large degree for this. Vou see, it is this way: One class or style of men are here one year, who have certain ideas, which they embody in the already well developed social plan: this class is followed by another class, and this class, in turn, is toUowed by still another, each separate class advancing more ma- tured and more up-to date sche;nes or plans for the regulating of the social life until at last, after a process of evolution, or possibly engrafting, step by step, the social life has improved and developed into an ideal university social existence. Of course, there were times when the progress was retarded and impeded by various difficulties, and yet, taken as a whole, the social evolution has been stead} ' , and at the same time liberal and wholesome. We do not arrogate to ourselves the claim of having the most pleasant and enjoyable form of social existence, but with justice to all, we say few institutions can boast superior. Its vast superiority lies in the fact that it is a three-fold life. First, there is the social relationship of the student body, the mingling of tlie ' Varsity students with the co-eds and with each other; then the social f riendliness on the part of the faculty, as so repeatedly manifested toward the students, and finally, the kindly feeling of the town people toward the college men. While it is true there I.JO is a tremendous class spirit, nevertheless the students band together, and en masse give and attend the swellest parties, balls, banquets and entertainments seen in Richmond. The fraternities give the greatest number of these delightful social functions that go to make the college life more enjoyable, but at the same time the Y. M. C. A. sociables, the Athletic benefits and the Freshman, Sophomore, Junior and Senior promenades and banquets cut no small figure in the social world of C. U. The girls at Central are undoubtedly the most charming of all college girls, and they certainly do entertain in the most enjoyable manner. A club has been formed hy the younger girls — a secret organization it is — whose parties are truly delightful. The older girls seem to be more practical in their ideas and they have started a cooking club, or to be more correct, and exempt myself from sharp criticism, it is a " Buf- fet Lunch Club, " the object of which is to train the girls in the art of cooking, so that they will not, when married, be compelled to endure the unkind remarks on the part of their husbands about " these biscuits not being as good as mother used to make, " etc. Then the eating clubs also abound here. These are social organizations which seek to enjoy only the mere things that " tickle the palate. " The Epicurean and K. H. B. are the two most prominent and select of students ' eating clubs. The K. H. B. is a strictly Senior club, while the Epicurean is a club of all Classes. They have sumptuous feasts held at midnight, when all good, boys should be in bed. But things at the ' ' arsity can not always be regulated to suit our own tastes or fancies. So necessary ' is it that these feasts be held at 12 o ' clock that no one would ever dare to mention the changing of the hour. The dainty " jMuk teas " given by thebo ' s are also pleasant affairs in the " U " life. During the late fall and winter the faculty entertained the students in a charming way. Light refreshments were served, and many an otlierwise weary hour was spent with our intel- lectual lights, the professors. But we must needs speak of the delightful hospitality of the town people that is always extended to the college students, before closing this hasty sketch of social life at C. U. From the very time that the little Freshman first steps off the train at the station until he leaves here a dignified vSenior, the homes of the Richmond people are open to receive him, and no- where cati he be treated in more royal style. So true is this that every student simpl - hates to leave the town and longs with intense eagerness tor an opportunity to return and see his old friends and his dear alma mater. G. W.
