CHARLES A. RICHMOND, D. D. REV. J. WILFORD, D. D. EZRA J. PECK, LL. D. EXTRACTS FROM A SENIOR'S DIARY Sept. 18-Summer over ! Our last long vacation gone! Once more back in old Elmi- ra ! How dear the old girls seem and how motherly we feel toward the new girls l Henry is so tactful-brings us straight up to the fifth floor with never a question. And we are really away up in the dizzy heights of Senior Hall-the land of tl1e midnight-lights. Nina, in spite of her usual irrepressible frivolity, maintained with great credit our new Senior dig- nity at the Y. WV. C. A. reception. Oct. 7-'We all elected astronomy, because it is such fun to do observatory with Miss Young. YVe looked at Jupiter and his moons for an hour, and then went down stairs and danced. Nov. 2-First number of the Sibyl out! It was ushered in with fitting ceremonies by black-robed priestesses of Her Sibyllian Highness. Academic gowns are good for more things than one. Nov. G-Greatest excitement l The china from Japan for Senior Parlors arrived. Three rousing good cheers for Mrs. Lowder ! Nov. 7-At last the curious college public has been welcomed to Senior Parlors, and we-1904-actually have a home all our own. Senior Parlors are all that our ideas, neces- sarily modified by our treasury, can make them. Gave a reception for our delightful Sopho- mores in the afternoon. In the evening the College came en masse, and, judging from the ls relished by the best of men "- remarks made, we have done all and mo1'e than was expected of us. Nov. 12 out one thing -The worst ever! l T63.GllS1'SiEX2l.1l'1S. at Elmira Heights! VVe have found -even though we are Seniors there really are some things-in fact some rather trivial things- that we do not know. Nov. 16-Class meeting. Nov. 17-Class meeting. Nov. 18-Class meeting. Nov. 19-Class meeting. Tiny came. Nov. 20-Class meeting. Tiny had such a-good time she came again. Nov. 21 -" A little nonsense now and then and even by the dignified Cso-calledj Seniors. Our Minstrel Show has at last come off. Talk about your " swell coons H l If laughing steadily for more than an l1our means a good time, those in the audience certainly must have enjoyed themselves. The Freshmen seemed fas- cinated by such gross indignity on the part of Seniors-and especially on the part of Gen- ieve. Dec. 12-Our first Senior spread ! And such a feast as we had l Salad never tasted so good as it did from the dragon plate, and coffee had an added Havor from tl1e chrysanthe- mum cup. Everything was a success. Ethel was horrihed. though, when she discovered that there were thirteen at her table. We surely have never known what class loyalty is until this year, when every Senior is dear to every other one because she is a Senior. As we sang all the old College songs, Alma Mater herself became nearer and clearer, because we felt that all those who praised her had tried her for three years and more, and knew whereof they sang. Jan. 16-The hatchet is buried-or what has always been a poor excuse for such a weapon. The Juniors gave us the best kind of a sleigh-ride party. XVe expected great things of 19105, a11d our expectations were more than fulfilled. Rah,Rah, Rah for Pine City ! And Rah, Rah, Rah for the Class of nineteen five! Jan. 22-Every one breathes easily again l Astronomy Exam. is over ! NVe are still alive. hut decidedly the worse for wear. Greatest relief on the part of the Seniors, as well as Miss Young and all the rest of the College l Feb. 1-" The beginning of the end is at hand E" VVe have rounded the last curve and are on the home stretch. Our last schedules are made out and signed, and our last semester has begun. " Here's hopin' l" 13 Colors--Black and Yellow. ' Flower-Chrysanthemum. MDCCCCIV. Rah, rah ! rah, rah ! rah, rah ! roar!

" Wliere there is much strength, there ain't apt to be much gumptionf' I am the Junior from Oregon l" You should hear her say this with a great deal of fond em- phasis on the k'Junior,i' but such pride on the "Oregon !" Do11't know how skilfully she can lasso a maddened steer nor tame a bucking bronco, but we do know she is as serious and devoted a student as the rest of us, and can settle any argu- ment in class by the assertion, 'G I know. for I've tried it." Besides having a fair knowledge of many of the subjects offered in the College cur- riculum, she speaks all the Indian dialects-for she can tell us the U. of Oregon yell. If urged, will tell about West Point, and show a pair of epaulettes she has. HELEN BARTHOLOMEW, Elmira, N. Y. " Mag," " Noisy." Q M, Biol., B. B. Team Q1-31, Treas. 45 M Q3j, Bus. Mgr. IRIS. Helen has a single man, The unit of the social world, His study 'early she began Thatpshe might 'know him. A mild. tractable child, very quiet-with abso- lutely no mind of her own. Conscientious-goes in for basket ball for the sake of her class. Speaks French like a native. Has been asked to give daily reading that the class may profit by her pronunciation. Sorry to say she's not always truthful, so, although she assures us with appro- priate gestures, that " He didn't," we are inclined to think he did.

" 'Twill wish you well-the looking glass, And look you in the face to-night." Passing fair, stately and tall-" I hate adumpy woman "-with cute curls. innocent blue eyes and a shy, retiring manner. Some say her mid- dle name is conceit. Reared in ignorance up to the time she reached Elmira-then learned how to pronounce her own name. A Wonder at writ- ing short stories, but wishes they could find some one else to be the 'R butt of the Sibyl." Can blush when specially requested, but was recently out- done in a match for the displayal of this particu- lar evidence of innocence. FLORENCE ISABELLA BLADES, Schenectady, N. Y. "Mine Philotesf' Q M, Biol., Pres. Biol QSJ, Lit. Ed. IRIS, Rec. Sec. Q5 M Gil, Sec. Biol. Q3j " There's just ae thing I cannae bear, An' tha.t's my conscience." A short, lively little girl, never still at minute, and never happy except when making a. noise. Strange to say of one so frivolous, she's a shark at mathematics and stands at the head of an immense class in Theory of Equations. Name pronounced Blzides by those who know. Chief chzuacteristic-her determination to say her say in spite of interruption, and to stick to her say in spite of 9.1'g'LII116llIJS and persuasions. 23 INIABEL Louisn CLARK, Avon. N. Y. f'WVife.i' QJVI, Senator Q3l, Treas. Qlj, Libra- rian CD M 125, Cor. Seo. 45 M 35, V. Pres. QSH. " He's all I've got-or want-is J im. He's jist so good and clever ! An' likes me, an' I like hi1n, 'An' will, I guess, forever." Awfully sorry to disappoint you, but Jim in this case is " jest a pup-not two years old." Don't know as the quotation would apply to a human Jim-never heard Mabel mention one. Sheis a bashful child, and reticent: religious to a fault, even cutting "Chester", to go to ohuroh. Lives on a strict diet-they wonder Why sl1e's so thin. Naturally timid, but can talk when thoroughly roused, and recently spoke so longand loudly on the servant question that Bessie oou1dn't get a word in edgewise for the factory girl. Her 'L Budding " hopes of last year have been frustra- ted by 'i gym? " ANNA MAY CLEVELAND, Elmira, N. Y. "Rube," "Little Ann." Q5 M, Critic Q M Q3j, Sec. QD, Lit. Ed. IRIS. "What stature is she of? Just as high as my heartfi One of our shortest girls. Even her gown can- not give her dignity, nor does her original Way of wearing her cap bring her up to average height. Always charming but never more so than when she appeared as Little Bo Peep. Char- ter member of Kappa Iota Sigma Sigma-holds all the offices and was the one who made the fa- mous motion that the dues be increased. Very fond of gym.-went twice last semester. Bari- tone in our "Silent Quartettef' Must be aw- fully olever for she can explain all the dihicult passages in the IRIS.

Ass'n QQJ, Treas. QSQ, V. Pres. Y. W. C. A. C3j. " Let the world slide, let the world go, A fig for care and a fig for woe." E Our pride, our pearl, our fair haired baby girl. One of our greatest trials-so lively that she makes us feel lazy. but were not. Recently made her Hdebut into sassietyx at Annapolis, and has since been in a. perfect whirl of gaiety that culminated in the Y. WV. C. A. convention at Gloversville. Takes great pleasure leaping from crag to crag of her Pennsylvania mountains, but might be persuaded to leave them to follow Brig- ham Young. Just loves to send her friends fudge. Poetically inclined. ELVA BESSIE GRAY, , . E Elmira, N. Y. "Mike,i' " Be-ss.", S15 M, B. Team QD. 'f Whence came thy blushes, rose so fair, So fragrant, sweet and debonair ?" One of our many good looking girls-small and cute-tries to look dignified. Recently posed as " Queen of Hearts " and -made quite a hit. Much addicted to singing and manages to grind out a soprano good enough to match Genie's alto. Practically lives in her gym. suit. As a member of Kappa Iota Sigma Sigma pays her dues regu- larly and quite fuliills the promise given by her noble endurance of the initiation. " Mike" is short for microscopic, which brings her very short indeed. Has been known to laugh. 25 LUCY LAFAYETTE GREEN, Westield, N. J. "Luc," "Cotton," " Twiuf' K E, Thespis, V. Pres. C1-'04j, Art Ed. IRIS. "Out of the garden of play time,-out of the bovver of rest Fain would I follow at day time music that calls toa quest." The only music we ever heard Lucy herself pro- duce, is that of the chapel bell-yet they say the quotation suits her. Just has an ear for other people's music, maybe, and can appreciate it. Did you ever hear Cotton laugh ? Must be she never did then or you would have heard it. Has great artistic ability-apply at IRIS office for par- ticulars. Interesting to look at-with soft, curly hair, languid eyes, and freckles. Recently has taken to crushes and bead chains. " Hei diddle, diddlef' , ANNAH LOUISE GRIFFIN, Big Flats, N. Y. "Ann," " Punikinf' Q M. " Her face is lean and her wit is keen And her eye lets nothing pass." Ann knows a lot, but she's so bloomin' back- ward about telling it. Lives so near home her interest is divided-between us and-her rela- tives of course. Entertains us a great deal with stories of college girls we have never heard of before, and never would hear of from Ann herself. A living exampleiof promptness in pay- ing dues, making beds, etc.-and often used as call boy for girls that have 8 o'clocks. 26 MARY HINKLEY, Poughkeepsie, N. Y. "Aunt Mary," H Mrs. Hinkley." K E, Thespis, Lib. K 2. 435. Aunt Mary often wishes she were not so con- venient. but the rest of us like it. You see she always has pins, needles, medicine, bags-any thing you need-even advice-and she dispenses with them all freely to everybody, faculty in- cluded. So whatever we need, we call on her. Of course, when we are having a good time and she advises us not to be so noisy, that is not so welconieg but it makes up when questions are given in class for "everybody" and "Aunt Mary ' answers before the rest of us have time to display our ignorance. We all love her and are glad to have her one of us. DAISY ABIGAIL I-Iown, Gardner, Mass. " Deah-heaht," " Diz." Q M. " Spare her at least." Feel so sorry for Daisy, you know. Someway, she talks queerly, but she don't noticeit. And Wahnah tells her she says things just like other girls from Gahdna. Gets letters from " paupa " and "mau1na" fdouble quick timej and often starts to tell about them but doesnit get far. Question was once raised in Sociology, "What is the diiference between Miss Howe and a Dago ?l' but no one could see any, so she has sent for a monkey-didnft have to send far-and will return to her native town by way of the back streets. L' You old slaubsf' 27 ADDA :MCDANIELS LONG, Mechanicsburg,' Pa. 5' Songy." K E. ' " Hungry as the grave." Very small. naturally shy about reciting in class.

The groups of old trees made a realistic forest of Arden, through which the banished duke and his lords wandered, and where Orlando pinned up his love letters. Electric lights, skilfully arranged, shone down from the branches, and a band, hidden by shrubbery, played between the acts. The leading parts were taken by Miss Sheeley as Or- lando, Miss Hilton as Rosalincl, Miss French as Touchstone, Miss Gilbert as Celia, and Miss Diven as the Bamshed Duke. 50 --ggi? - - rc?

Our Association was represented by two delegates at the State Convention, held in Gloversville, February 25th-29th. This was an inspiring con vention, convincing all present of the importance and success of the Young Womens Christian Association. Our dear.Miss Lewis, the state student secretary, whom we came to love so well when she visited us this. fall, was there, with a hearty welcome for her girls. Miss Bertha Conde, student secretary of American committee, was especially interested in meeting the Elmira delegates, as she once taught in Elmira.. The delegates, one hundred in number, repre- sented, besides city associations, Syracuse and Cornell universities, Barnard and Adelphi colleges, and Albany and Brockport normal schools. May our Association have another even more successful year than the last, so as to send even a better report to the next convention. 52 5 7 HQ Presidevzl . .....,....... . Vice Preszdevzl ...........

Miss Emily Dex- ter, who was our elector for 1902 and 1903, reported an Elmira subscription of seventy dol- lars at the annual meeting of the College Settlements Association in New York last May. Miss Hubbard, the assistant head worker of the Rivington Street House in New York city, addressed us in November and aroused a good deal of enthusiam, which We hope may be materially expressed when Miss Gertrude Seely, the Elmira elector for 1904 and 1905, reports for our chapter at New York next May. 54 Al i President .......... . .... . .ADELAIDE TABOR YOUNG Elecior .......... ....

The Sophomores had won from the Freshmen the previous afternoon, and now we were to meet the victorious team. The game took place on the Armory court, and was a hard Hght from beginning to end. Each girl played as if her life depended on the issue. and as the ball went from one end of the court to the other, cheers of joy or sighs of chagrin could be heard. Wlieli the first goal was thrown for the Sophomores by Miss Adriance. our hearts were sad indeed, but a basket for us by Miss Maxwell, restored our smiles. Another followed, and with the score 4-2 in our favor. we could well cheer-but not for long. Miss Wheeler' evened things up by throwing another goal. This was the last chance they had, as our guards set themselves to hard, steady Work. After several minutes of hard play, Miss Diven threw a most difficult goal. and the game was won with a score of 6-4. G1 WW ECHOES. SENIOR-Talk about conceit, just see the decorations !

DEAR CLASSMATES :- The girls of '05 may depend upon the lasting love and loyalty of those who have dropped from their ranks. Affection for College and Class does not decrease even though one has ceased to he identified with onefs Alma Mater. How often do I look back on the days and friends of last year and the year before and count them as among the dearest in my possession. The first are lost, as it were, but the second I hope to keep forever. With the very best of wishes for the continued success of 'i the most studious and most original class that ever entered Elmira," believe me, Your sincere ex-classmate, SHERBURNE, N. Y. Lois BIGELOW NEWTON. . -I want to tell the members of thel class of '05 that I love the class just as much as ever and am just as interested in it as ever. CHESTERTOWN, N. Y. LAURA THURSTON. -Very often I have heard that the class of nineteen five is a strong and most conge- nial one. I most heartily congratulate you students upon your success, for I am confident that you deserve all the honors that are given you. Four years of hard and faithful work will give you an excellent opportunity to use your life so that it will be a great innuence for good among your companions. Of course you are looking forward constantly with increas ing interest toward the coming responsibility of your work in life. I assure You that I wish you the success which will surely follow such patient work. SANDY HILL, N. Y. EDITH M. BROWVN. It might be more of a pleasure to write a few lines for the Iris if it were not a deli- cate task, in that I want to show my loyalty both to Elmira College and to the University of Chicago. 77 In the first place, they are different, because one is a small institution and the other is large. Upon the advantages of each I need not dwell, as they were discussed in some themes which we wrote for Dr. Moore, the year I was with you. At Elmira my classmates-for I always think of the Juniors as such-are looking very dignified in their caps and gowns. I hope to get a glimpse of them when I receive my Iris, which I am confident will be a success. How could it be otherwise, considering the class. Hurrah for 1905 ! . Sincerely, UNIVERSITY or CHICAGO. HELEN J. HOLZHEIMER. We should like to say a word in praise of the last one to drop from our ranks,-we should like to express our sorrow over losing her,-We should like to praise her loyalty as a member of our class and for two terms its vice president,-but there come into our mind in connection with the name of May Atwood Hilton, ex. '05, these lines of Shakespeare's : 4' To gild refined gold, to paint the lily, To throw a perfume on the violet, To smooth the ice, or add another hue Unto the rainbow, or with taper light To seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, Is wasteful, and ridiculous excessf' Our only fitting tribute to Mame is found in our hearts. Naughty-five, cherishing as it does the memory of its ex-members, and pronting by their devotion, is again blessed in its new members. Last year We welcomed one to our ranks, and this year five. To-day they cannot be distinguished in loyalty from the rest of us. They are represented on our Iris board, among our Sibyl editors, and on our basket ball team. In short, though gathered from the classes of '04, Elmira, '06, Elmira, and f05, Uni- versity of Oregon, they are now '05, Elmira. 78 WHEN CHESTER COMES TO TOWN For every week that Chester's here, A week the day's delayed, Wlieii the floor in the gymnasium Will have to be relaid, When the time for Gym arrives Not 9. girl goes down.

Directions come which make her quiver 1 The pistol sounds, it makes her shiver- It seems as if she'd run forever Before the order, " Stop," he gives her,- He,-the coach for Field Day.

Written in classic Latin probably in third month of year of Our Lord Nineteen Hun- dred and Three. Translated by the freshman who found it since for a long time her class had been conscious of a gap in the annals of the class of 1905 during the third month of the year of Our Lord Nineteen Hundred and Three, and many unfounded rumors had been re- ported of the events of that month. Her translation is as followsj: . . . . Cum haec ita sint . . . . the battle having been ended between the classes of the Sophomores and Freshmen, when the feast of the Sophomore class on the ninth day before the Kalends of April was over, and the rooms had been wrecked, peace once more for a time prevailed. Wlien, however, quiet was to them for many days, since these, the former, fSophomoresj had been victorious over those the latter, CFreshrnenj, it came to the minds of the Sophomores that the time was approaching in which the Freshmen their annual feast would hold. These when they suspected this, were keen as to their ears in trying to ascer- tain whatsoever things they might concerning what the Freshmen might be planning in their minds. When. however, the Freshmen learned through the warnings of the Juniors 09045 that the Sophomores were a wise and knowing people, they were very much fright- ened lest their banquet should be interrupted, their president imprisoned, and their provi- sions stolen. They were ignorant as to what they should do. Grievous consternation seized them. The oracles, the Juniors, together with the Sibyl-line books were consulted, so it is said, for former records of Freshman banquets. The response was always the same : " The success of the feast lies in this fact, namely, that it be kept far from the ears of the Soph- omores. Flee from themf' For the sake of this response no blame must be laid upon the oracles or college books by any one, because they alone are able to interpret them. The Freshmen were troubled. A council was called in the field, Room 83, and a dis- cussion arose as to the meaning of the oracle. This one interpreted it one way and that one another. It was decided by them that the oracle had this meaning, namely, that in order to keep if the feast from the ears of the Sophomores," it must not be held in the college building, since otherwise they would hear of it, and in order, on the other hand. " to Hee from the Sopho1nores," it would be necessary for them to have the feast not on the college campus. Therefore it was decided to hold the annud! Freshmcm Banquet within the short space of seven days in a public inn in the city, where they were well aware no one of the Sophomores would be found at night. Cum haec ita. sint, the Sophomores could in no wise tell at first where the feast was to be held. If, however, it shall have been held in the chapel of the college, where by tradi- tion ab collegio traditio Freshmen banquets had been accustomed to be held, the Sopho- mores would have been able to have learned of it sooner. But cum haec ita sint, these did learn of it on the day before the Nones of March, about the fourth watch, where the Fresh- men had entrenched themselves to feast. This having been found out, the chief of the Sophomores dispatched a messenger to the Freshman camp with a greeting composed of the well-known battle cry of the Sophomores. Wliicli, itwas found out, the Freshman chief read to those feasting about the table. The daily parchments Qnewspapersj were informed by means of embassies from the Freshmen of the feast and of the delusion, as it was called, of the Sophomores. On that account false reports were spread, and up to the present day this account only is an authentic record of the events as they transpired. Cum haec ita sint 85 SLIDIN' DOWN Oh, have you seen them sliding down The Main street steps,-all sliding down, Hoping in Vain that none may see, Lest all the girls go mad with glee ? And have you heard their cries ring out. Frightened, appealing-their cries ring out? And have you heard them gently GJ swear, As their feet take leave of the ioy stair ? And have you seen their waving skirts. Their troublesome skirts, their fluttering skirts ? Their feet seek a foothold in the air, Their backs must bear the frozen glare. And have you seen them grasp 'the rail? All deathly pale they clutched the rail, While books, combs, hairpins-skyward Hy And hats tilt rakishly over one eye, Now for ourselves We would not care, But our friend, the expressmau, is in despair. " Three times and out," that martyr said, As he carefully rubbed the back of his head. 86 3 FIRE-DRILLS To her who in the love of slumber holds Communion with invisible forms, there A curious clanging g for her quiet sleep It is a voice of sorrow, and a pang And insolence of might g and it creeps Into her tender dreaming with a Wild And fierce authority, that steals away Her slumber e1'e she is aware. Then crowds Of sleepy, Weary maidens troop downstairs, Dressed properly to go upon the street, C0111 GS And armed with Watches, rings or pictures dear, Or feather-duster, or some other prize. They run, they slide, they fall, they laugh, they And straight into the chapel all must go. All panting and excited there they stand, Until they know 'tis not a real alarm, Then up the stairs they file. to bed they rush, Well, yes, to bed,--but hardly rush to bed, For sleep and sleeping dreams a1'e gone away, And talk and waking dreams are come again. Oh, yes, fire-drills are iine for colleges. 87 shout THE INTERVENTION OF THE GODS Robert Laurence Pearse, J r., was having a iit of the blues. Even his desk spake loud- ly of something wrong. Papers were scattered broadcast, his pipe lay bottom up on a Ger- man dictionary and was burning a hole in one of the pages, while a small pool of ink was, all unnoticed, gradually expanding and making its way towards an dilapidated copy of Plato. Robert Laurence Pearse, J r., sat with his feet on the window sill with a deep line between his eyes, and thought about his sins. The point was, they made such an appalling sum total. He was given to having such reckonings lately, and it recalled to his mind vividly his Freshman days, when he had con- sidered that he was really quite wild, He remembered the bad quarter-hours over his little Freshman sins and the subsequent letters to his mother. Answers to those letters had come by return mail, and nearly always within a week had come a letter from his father, himself a VVyndha1n man,--making no mention of the little confession, but saying that he expected much of his son at college, and knew that he would never do anything unworthy of the name of Pearse. It was different-now. In those days he had made his reputation. From being merely Pearse, the Freshman who knew some football and was captain of the scrub team, he became--not all at once, there were hard knocks and severe training involved--Pearse, the great half-back, the idol of his college. and of all the college athletic world. 'A The Great Pearse," they called him. There was a song to 'Q Bobbie, the Great." There was no use in being modest with oneself g he knew all this had been true, And now, yes, certainly the saying was that " the Great Pearse " had gone to the devil. A splendid Thanksgiving victory, coupled with the sudden relaxation of training 1'ules, had begun it, he remembered. The game was Wynclham's, and he had done it, they said. The crowd had stayed on in New York, and--he had sent no letter to his mother when it was all over. The trouble was that that was only the beginning for him. He re- membered how the best of the adoring Freshmen had begun to look askance, to be pitifully embarrassed when they met him on some occasions 3 and how the worst had begun to imi- tate. Adams. the trainer, had sent for him and talked plain language, in which the wo1'ds " good condition " and 4' getting ready for the training season " had played a prominent part. He had told Adams that he knew enough to train when the time came g until then he would do as he pleased. And he had done as he pleased ,... but he had kept his word, trained faithfully that year and played as. people had begun to say, only the Great Pearse could play. Then, the following fall, the disgrace had come. It was just before the big game with Hampton, and everything was at tension. Adams visibly swelled with pride over his big. beautiful men, and his hopes were high. He based them all on Pearse. Hamp- ton had team work : Wynclhain had Pearse. He never knew why he had done it. Nothing was farther from his intentions. There were but two days more. Why could not the temptation have held off those two days? But it had not, and he came crashing down under it, down off his pedestal, where honest work. a beautiful body and a quick brain had placed him g down forever to an unattractive plane, where self-respect did not dwell. The team had had to depart without him--accompanied by a huge, scared fellow whose legs shook un- der him when he remembered who it was whose place he had to ill. The big fellow, whose name was Barton, had played well, but Wyndham had lost, hopelessly, shamefully lost, with a score that made men groan, and when Pearse gathered his tattered courage and re- turned to Wyndliaiii, he was told that he need not think of playing again on the 'varsity, or indeed on any other team of Wyncll1am's. The judgment was just, he was the last to deny that, indeed he did not understand why the president allowed him to stay another hour 88 within the walls of the college which he had deserted in her hour of need. He had not wished to return, but his father had written to him at the club where he was stayin g-for he would not go home-a letter which left a sting for all time: " You have disgraced your- self, sir, and the name of Pearse. More than that, you have disgraced your college. Wynd- ham and Pearse are not names to be tampered with. You have dishonored both. The best thing you can do is to go back and finish your course. and on that I insist. Wlieii you con- sider that your money comes from me, and that you have hardly made for yourself good credentials to offer to the business world, I think you will see the wisdom of this. " It is not necessary for me to say anything of the feelings of your mother and Sally concerning the matter. It will be as well for you to spend your vacations elsewhere than at home for a time. Yours truly, ROBERT LAURENCE PEARSEX' The words of that letter, almost a year old, repeated themselves, phrase after phrase, in his mind, now, with stinging distinctness. He had not been home since it. His mother and Sally wrote tearfully, but that he argued was their attitude at a distance. The only time he had seen Sally, since, she had been plainly embarrassed. They were people who made so much of anything like that, and his own bringing up had been after the same spirit. To break training-and in such a manner-to be put off the 'varsity, his own team, to dis- grace himself before the eyes of thousands of people-that was the worst. For it had been in all the newspapers, with his picture and the story of his football career. Reading that was quite a different matter from reading what " Captain Pearse says of the success of so and so, and such and such this fall? The emotions of those who set up an idol and then see it tumble ignominiously to the earth are not pleasant g but they are a small matter compared with the feelings of the idol himself after his swift descent, unbroken even by a friendly parachute. Life did not seem very desirable to Robert Laurence Pearse, Jr., and merely to live had been harder during the past months than he had imagined anything could be. The Great Pearse, in his Senior year, was down and out. It is not easy to know you have failed and been unworthy and to have to live with that knowledge as a close companion, He rose and began to walk aimlessly about the room. " If there was something I could do, something hard that I could do, that would make up," he said aloud, standing still in the middle of the room. " The Lord knows I'm not try- ing to crawl, but I wish my grandfather had owned wits enough to behave himself." His father's scornful face stood out distinctly before him, with the grand dilation of the thin nostrils he recognized as his own when angry. He saw Sally's blue eyes wet and avoiding his, and his mother, timidly obedient to her husbands wishes. The sight of those faces cut into his very heart, but there was worse than that. He walked almost stumblingly to the mantel and stood quiet a moment. I-Iis eyebrows carrie together. His face seemed to take on new deep lines and to grow perceptibly thinner. Then, quickly, he laid his head down on the mantel beside a picture in a silver frame. His shoulders shuddered convulsively for a moment and then became quiet. There was a queen and she could do no wrong : and this, her subject, had been unworthy. A A long time later he lifted his head. L' The Gods aren't good to my kind, I guess," he said huskily, "but if they would send something for me to do ri There was a sound of heavy boots springing up two flights of stairs at an alarming pace, the door of Pearses room burst open and in bounced Tommy Cregan. His red hair stood erratically up in the air and his round face was all crinkled up with excitement. He threw his cap straight through an open doorway into Pearse's bedroom and rushed up to 89 Pearse himself, shouting as if he thought his friend had suddenly gone deaf, " Bobbie, you've got to do it! Do you hear? Adams said 'all right '-you can do it, and you must l Oh, Jupiter Ammon, what a beastly hole ll' He sank down on the divan and began fanning himself violently with a rather thin sofa pillow. f' Tommy, are you crazy ? VVhat on earth-" began Pearse. H No, I'm not, really Pm not-" he was talking so fast that his Words all ran together and tripped each other up. 'S Giye me half a minute -to get my wind, I ran all the way ! Barton's ankle-It's broken-think of it-Barton! And the game to-morrow l Finnigan is home--funeral! Davis couldnlt do it, and they want you, Bobbie, you, you, YOU-to play and save us !" Pearse's face was as pale as death and his hands held Gregan as in a vise. " Tommy, if youtre fooling me I'll murder you I" he said between his teeth. " No-honesty' Tommy wriggled feebly, H it's gospel. Quick! Look out, you'll break my arm." " But the training," stainmered Pearse. " I-I-" " If you'll kindly allow me to rise I can say something. The fact is, Bobbie, Wynd- ham has simply got to get that game by hook or crook. The1'e, now, don't get up in the air ! In plain language, you are better, out of training, and-well-under condition, than any- body that's available. It'll be like old times. Bobbie, don't you see! Don't look as if you we1'e going to be hung, you're going to play on the team again, your own team, you old Z" Tommy gulped, 'S fool l" he added, endearingly. But Pearse was wrapping one of the portieres around his head and leaning weakly against the side of his bedroom door. A knock came from the direction of the hall, and as Pearse disappeared into the bedroom, Tommy answered it. Adams, the trainer, stood in the doorway. It was just before the game and the great grandstand and the " bleachers " were crowded with enough people to make up a- small city. A cold wind was blowing, but the sun shone out brightly upon the different colored ribbons which fluttered loyally, each for its own college. The gridiron looked like a hard, cold place upon which to fall down and be trampled upon, and the hills which, because of the clearness of the day seemed incredibly near, had snow upon them. Everyone in the great crowd seemed laughing and talking and calling to everyone else. The talk was mostly about the coming game, and snatohes of such sentences as these could be heard passing back and forth : K' lt's Pearse, the Great Pearse, you know, going to play? " Wasn't he turned off the team once ?" " Yes, for breaking g training drinks, you know. They say he is going to the dogs pretty fast. Wonclel' how he comes to be playing l"-l'i It's Pearse, again. and not in training either, they say. They've taken him back at the last minute. Barton broke his ankle yesterday in practice. The only good substitute for his position is home with a dead grandmother and can't get here in time. So the all-conquering Bobbie is with us again. Grad I I'd like to see one of his glorious old tackles once more l But out of training for a year-and all the rest--" The crowd continually grew larger, and there were people in it of almost all condi- tions. Of course, college fellows by the hundreds were there, easily distinguished by the way they seemed to move about in squads, not as individuals, and were plentifully besprinkled with college pennants and streamers. Old men were there, with white hair and young eyes g middle-aged men, waving their decorated canes at recognition of old friends, and shouting with the best. And there was the young alumnus who had traveled miles to see this game 90 and would give half of his possessions to be part of it all once more. But girls made up no small part of the throng. There were little ones,-the fragile, breakable kind 5 and big ones, who often put the men surrounding them in the shadow g light ones, dark ones, and there was scarcely one who did not wear pinned to the front of her cloak either huge yellow chrysanthemums tied with a black ribbon or a cluster of great red roses. Among those of the red roses was one girl, neither very little or very big, yet at whom more than one person turned to look a second time. She was talking to four or Hve men at once, and whatever she was saying seemed to be very funny, for they shouted with laughter and then drew nearer to hear more. At first glance the three noticeable things about her were wonderful furs, acontagious smile and beautiful eyes. A close observer saw much more, and might have seen this just now if he had wished,-that in spite of the laugh and the smile, her dark eyes always returned anxiously to one point in the landscape, that from which the players might be expected to come 3 that her mouth was apt to tremble, that the clear laugh was a little forced. Wlien the men began to discuss Pearse and the circum- stances connected with his playing once more, she leaned back in her seat and let the talk go on without her. The Great Pearse himself was in a daze, as it were. The very familiarity of the scene seemed to have a numbing influence upon him. He submitted mechanically to being rubbed down and prepared for the fray, and all the while his mind would think only two things, his eyes see but two-f' You have disgraced yourself, sir, and the name of ' Pearse '- ' Wyndham' and E Pearse 5 are not names to be tampered with. You have dishonored both? These were the phrases grinding themselves out over and over again in his brain, and he saw exactly how his father's face had looked when he had written them. There was scorn for the weakness which had yielded to temptation-no pity. But oftener than the sound of his father's words, or the sight of his father's face, came the overwhelming knowledge that somewhere in all that mass of people there sat a queen, who under no circumstances could do any wrong. Her face hung before him, forever between his eyes and the scenes which were all around. Her eyes, which were so very dark, reproached him, and yet they held a beautiful pity, too. 'When the captain-in the old days he had been that enviable individual-came around with his brief, quick questions and answers and his last instructions to his men, Pearse felt himself grow suddenly weak, as he had not done since he used to play on his prep-school team, and as he trotted out into the field it seemed to him as if his legs must shake visibly. The grand stand and the bleachers seemed, as a whole, to shift way to one side, and then back again, and then melt rapidly into the sky. VVitl1 a sort of snort he shook himself out of the tendency to become faint, and shut his teeth hard. The man at his side thought he was swearing. What he really said over and over under his breath was : " We mustn't dis- appoint her, she's watching us, she's watching us li' It was the hardest fought game Wyndhain had ever played. Back and forth the great fellows swayed and strained and plunged. Every inch of ground gained or lost for either side was fought for desperately. Man after man would slip and go down to be imme- diately covered four deep by a pile of his fellow creatures, only to wriggle out of some loop- hole in the mass and plunge into the game again. The wind swerved to the north and grew colder, snow began to fly, but the crowd of spectators did not mind. They stood up and leaned forward, all their attention on that swaying mass of men. Sometimes it seemed as if the crowd as one body would hold its breath at a moment of suspense, and then let it out together in one great sigh of relief or chagrin. Men chewed their mustaches and muttered 91 incoherently, two or three girls giggled hysterically, the tension was at high pitch, forneithev' side had scored. Then suddenly Hampton woke up, made a spurt and scored, but NVynd- ham followed close on her heels with a goal. so that the first half ended in a tie, and the crowd yelled itself hoarse. The second half opened with very swift playing and it was seen that Pearse, who had not played out of the ordinary in the Hrst half now seemed to come to himself, as it were. He was alert, watchful, deliberate, and on the spot to fill every slightest need. Both teams worked, straining and stretching nerves and powers, but still that deadly tie remained un- broken. The minute hands of a thousand watches seemed fairly to race, still each side held the other back. Two minutes left,-everyone in the grand stand and on the bleachers was on his feet. A silence had fallen. One minute left, half a minute g-a man, yes, it is a Hampton man, has broken through the line with the ball under his arm and has started to make a run ! But somebody is after him, gaining on him rapidly! Is there but one man who can run like that ? Under fifteen yards Pearse had overtaken the Hampton giant, tackled beautifully, tackled as only the Great Pearse could tackle, and brought him down. There was an uproar as of a city rising up in exultation. And the game was VVyndhain's ! Pearse did not know exactly where he was, but anyhow the place was quiet and warm and a bandage on his head was deliciously comfortable. Two things seemed to have come to life. A girl with dark eyes had stepped out of a silver frame, where she obviously and un- deniably belonged , and his father had forsaken the letter, in which he had dwelt so long, and was moving about the room. It was a pleasant dream, and he lay still and watched interest- edly what would happen next. This is what happened. The girl who really belonged in the silver frame came and leaned down over him and took his hand-it was very large in hers- and said some words like these, which were quite foolish : " Little boy, you were glorious, you were you were V' If it had not been a dream he could have felt her hair on his face a minute. He could just hear her whisper: 'f I am proud in Then the shadow of his father came up. H All right, Bobbie," it said. Pearse had only been stunned by his fall, and that night he was at the club-house, a bandage around his head. but otherwise himself. The crowd was fast getting thicker, everyone was jubilant g a rousing celebration was imminent. Pearse shook off the detain- ing hand upon his arm. ' i' No," he said, roughly, " No, I can't stay, thank you." A servant helped him into his coat and gave him his hat, almost reverently mindful of the afternoon's game. Then Pearse went out and stood a moment on the steps of the club-house, while he lighted his cigar. He looked about him at the beauty of the fall night. The stars were out and looked far off and cold. shining down with their steady, unwinking light. Yet they did not look unkindly as he lifted his face to them. A beautiful calm and peace was in his heart. " It came of the gods,', he said, speaking aloud. " I have not done anything in particular. Playing a good game is nothing, in itself." From behind him a loud roar of laughter and shouting sounded, and the popping of corks commenced. H VVhat's the matter with Bobbie the Great ?i' someone shouted, and the answer came back, H He's all right Z" Pearse straightened his shoulders and kept his face steadfastly turned toward the night. R' They just took things into their own hands,-the gods,'i he went on. " They have mercifully vouchsafed another chance." Then he went down the steps and turned in the direction of an uptown street. His steps quickened and an eager, happy light shone in his eyes. fa 34422. f 3 1 a fi ig',,ffi1,'riQi-.,l.l .3 I--7 lf C: ' I ?

Who said to her pupils, " Don't laugh, I look young--but, Well, I came from Cornell, So at my dignity don't scoff." You say he teaches history and also teaches Greek? My, he must be very smart, Fd like to hear him speak. I ani sure he uses language intensely eloquent, Does he frighten you extremely with a style grandiloquent ? I suppose he strides across the room in a manner most bombastic And punctuates his lectures with gestures so fantastic. There's a prof. Who's addicted to slang, As he brings down his fist With a bang, His classes he thus will harangue. " If you give your translation a colloquial twang For the rest of your Work I don't give a hang?
