Nfwf t'sr Elmira Publish d annually by th 1909 Junior Class of Elmira Colleg STAR-GAZETTE PRINT, ELBURA, NEWV YORK reeting Once long ago, when the skies were much younger Zeus llll'llCd his over-watchful eye down from Olympus and it 1-hanced that his gaze fell upon at rainbow of surpassing brightness. Dlindful o'f his subjects he stralghtway determined to give to mortals ai- wondrous Surprise. As this thought rose within him and took shape, the air without gave answer. The rainbow filaments quivered and split. XVierd nielody hung about as in a. sudden burst the surging, vari-colored light tool: On a 1naiden's form. ' Vague and nnpalpable as was the vision, it seemed so beautiful even unto Zeus that, stretching forth his arms in mighty passion, he clutched and drew to him the thin air, maiden-shaped. And as he held it inusie- matl, writhing, twisting, turning, tossing, the form beeamje palpablfg and real. New Zeus, though his heart melted within him for this maiden, remembered the purpose for which he had,f01'ced her from the mar- velous bow, and pushing her reluctantly from him he sent her down to gladden the hearts of mortals, earrrying in her robes bits Of all the colors which he himself saw and knew. And the winged messenger of the rainbow he called Iris. In the year 1910 it is given to lnen to peri'orm on a lesser scale the work of the Gods of old. Standing upon Olympus, we, the class of 1910, have seen the beauty of the college rainbow, the ominous depth of the clark colors, the bright hopefulness of the light. XVe have first marveled, then grasped them as best we could, and elasping them to our hearts, have forced forth maiden-shaped expression of our vari-colored college life. XVe send Xvinged Iris, Messenger of our Rainbow, out among you, 3 To Our Patron Saint Dean M. ANSTICE HARRIS who as Instructor and Friend ever inspires us To all that is noblest and best We, the Class of 1910, dedicate this Our Iris 5 STARTING ON OUR LITERARY' QUEST.

'Not only has she won remarkable praise as Leading Lady and Brunette: Beauty, but in the general guidance and direction of our company she has proven herself invaluable. When we wish any arrangements made, plans carefully worked out, Latin or Greek dramas translated, ancient costuming planned, in fact, any information pertaining to thc classics, or ayn inexhaustible supply of original thought we go to Frances. Such a brilliancy is surely out of proportion to her size. It must be that all the medieval heroes were "Wa-Its" for Frances who knows a lot about "olden times" thinks that is just the right name for all of oiu' heroes. The company wishes to explain that her middle initial is not A, although we invariably associate A and A+ with her. Z6 BERTHA GRACE Amxvmrizr.. ' ELIVIIRA, N. Y. "And French she spoke ful faire and fetishlyi' Such a noisy girl! The despair of all of us for we cannot impress upon her mind that she must be quiet. Yet, 'For a' that' she is one of our best students and is especial- ly noted for her thorough knowl- edge of French, and an unusually extensive, vocabulary in English. The latter she employs with great precision and accuracy. No doubt this has been an aid in her' oratori- cal work: ,, HAZEL YVINIFRED AYERS. ELDIIRA, N. Y. Hazel has proved herself most valuable to our drama for she is competent along so many lines. She writes splendid stories, is a clever artist, dramatises her stories when we want something for an entertainment, and then plays well whatever 1-ole is assigned to her. With all these qualities Hazel is sm'e to be successful and we pre- dict for her gjreat fame in whatever she undertakes. 27 EDNA LOUISE BECK. DIAE ARMEDA BURT. The oliicial act of 1911 in crown- ing Mae as its queen but served to enlarge the realms of her wholn we of 1910 have ever acknowledged as our sovereign. Her sway, how- ever, extends beyond the confines of Elmira, for from Such distant places as Cornell, Syracuse and Rochester, other faithful subjects come,-especially at prom time. Versatility is Mae's strong point, at star in everything and she is from "labsv to poetry writing. But in spite of her superior attributes is ever one of us for though she "turns all heads toward her she has too level a one of her own to be turned--by adulationi' our Queen ELINIIRA, N. Y. The very smallest girl in college! However, the old sa-ying "good things Come in small packages" is true here. For we have found out that shes' a fine musician and able to do many other things well. Edna has lots of spirit and courage and was a source of inspiration at the tirne of our Freshinan rush with her "Pm little, but I'1n strong." She is a very successful imitator and: Freshlnan Latin was made easier by Edna'5 classes for the study of Htwanslation, gwammah, wef'wences and pwosef' Y .N N '-NN.. . . PHELPS, N. Y. HILDA XVALL BUTLER. I Hilda's sunny nature and happy disposition have made her a wel- Come member of our class. The glass of 1911 feel their misfortune in losing, as we feel our good luck in gaining such a true, sweet and brilliant girl, She is always cheer- ful. Even when her "Prom" man missed his train she clidn't think it an occasion for fi-owns. fProm troubles clon't affect us all that wa.y.J May I quote two of I-Iilcla's sayings: 'No slushing for me" and "Pvc got to go down and say good- night to Fan." MARY FLOR.ENCE CALLAHAN. ALBION, N. Y. ELIVIIRA, N. Y. KVhy speak of Florence? She made herself far renowned in the caste of "The XVise Young Sopho- Xvinter mores' played during the of '07 and '08, As heroine "Floss" won the highest praise: 'twas her name that resounded again and again in the mouths of the audi- euceg 'twas she who received the lanrels. But then Floss is always winning lanrels for us whether it is in dramatics, athletics, class functions, or literary work. This year she is Editor-in-chief of the I1-is and Junior editor of the Sibyl. Yes, Fannie, I agree with you, it is her pleasant manner, her cheery smile, her loyal and loving nat1u'e that makes her so well likedg her intellectual ability that makes her so well-known. BIA RGERY L. CADIERON . PlCfl'El'lB 0 li 0, N - Y- My. what activity! Almost Lakes our breath away! For lllargcry is ever up and doing, always has her lessons done days ahead of tiine and then just sews and cmbroiders until we are beginning to fear for her health. She is an authority on Copley prints, and you must have her tell you about her 'La Petite Danoisef' Tliatfs the picture over her desk, and' it came all the way from Paris. Margery's greatest fad, however, is shoes, and she has them in all styles and colors. Some attribute this hobby to the fact that she oan't help being conscious of her real small feet, but Dlargery says it takes six pairs of shoes to scare away those mice in the night. FLORENCE EVA COLE. CHARLTON, N. Y. Florence is so modest and retir- ing that she would have preferred to remain undiscovered. But our dralna has the power of bringing to light all those virtues and talents which the unassuming fain would hide and so it was not long before we became aware of the noble character, sweet disposition and lit- erary ability which are hers. Vlfe are learning to value her friendship more and more every day and are just a. bit envious of a "crush" who doesirt happen to be in the ranks of 1910. 30 ANNA DIAY COLRIDGE. Ambition, energy and persever- ance are Anna's eliaracteristivs and in the way she utilizes every mo- ment she teaches us valuable life lessons. She takes a lively interest in anything she undertakes, and seems to enjoy her studies thor- oughly. Argumentation is her fa- vorite, however, and it is well that the farmers of our country do not investigate the effect of the tariff on them as-thoroughly as Anna or we might expeet ill general uprising in the rural d'ist1'icts. ROSA S. COTTON. I-IA RTFORD, N. Y. EI.lSIl'lT,A, N. Y. ive would prophesy for Rosa a brilliant career in the business world. She is known for her splen- did executive ability and has lots of energy and always knows just what to do. As assistant busi- ness manager of the Sibyl she has proven herself an indefatigu- able worker, and whenever ap- pointed to a committee always assumes a large share of the re- sponsibility. Rosa has a great lore for amusements, the theater is one form, andshe can tell you about all the best dramas and con- certs. She's fond of dancing, too, but thinks Ithaca the best setting for this pastime. DIILDRED ELIZABETH DAVIDSON. DORA QMIRIADI DAVIS. WVho walks here so sedately? VVhy, Dora, of course. No other possesses half the dignity. To her, we feel we should give that part in our play which requires the deeper feeling rather than mere words. It is to her that we appeal for sym- pathy. Does she not feel our sor- row even before it is expressed? Perhaps we may overlook her quietness since she is one who of- fers to us the fruits of her medita- tion.. 32' 1i.AMSEY, J. Yes. other companies do want Mildred for she is such an excellent Director. She has accepted the Do- sition as President of Thespis, but from the manner in which she ar- ranges and directs our play we know that she is still faithful to our interests. Her skill and mas- tery in supervision are so extraord- inary that we cannot help wonder- ing whether those frequent trips to Cornell are taken in order to get hints for her stage work. It is re- gretted, but believed that she will give up this successful worldly career to reign in a inan's heart and home. Her kind-, generous na- ture, her thoughtfulness and fideli- ty of affection point to a hearth fire bright. PENN YAN. N. Y. FLORENCE ETHEL DRAKE. "O, dear," Ethel's fountain pen said to itself one day, "why does niy owner take all the sciences in the catalogue. I'm simply all worn out describing 'twigs' and writing up physical and chemical experi- men.ts. Then I have to stay in those stuffy labs for hours and hours, but she never seems to get tired and when she takes me up- stairs she sings and seems so hap- py. lVhy, I really think she loves to work. I guess she likes home pretty well too, for she uses me 'most every clay to write letters there. Iim glad she does, too, 'cause I like it a lot better than doin' ftwigsf " DIARY JAY ELDRID GE. INTERLAKEN, N. Y. COLUBIBUS, OHIO. The busiest girl in college! No exaggeration surely, for Mary is no sooner through her lessons than she has half a dozen other duties confronting her, duties arising from the numerous offices she holds and from her active interest in every phase of college life. In athletics especially Mary stars and she contributed much to our be- coming the champions in basket- ball. However, no matter how many duties Mary may have at hand, not even the least of them is neglected for she is wonderfully systematic, and when her work is clone she's the life of every social function. DIINER-VA FLOOD. CAROLINE M. FORD ON. "Gentle and True, Simple and kind was she, Noble of inien, with gracious speech to all And gladsome looks- A Pearl of Won1anl100d." This describes our "Caddie" and explains why we love her and everybody loves her. Cad always has a definite opinion on every sub- ject, and ever has the courage of her convictions. She is a splendid worker and no committee is com- plete without her. As head of the decoration- comrnittee for our Junior Prom, she earned at reputa- tion for energy which the Art Edi- tor of the Iris has only served to strengthen. 34 ELDLIRA, N. Y. Minerva is one of those people who though usually bubbling over with fun can be real serious. She assumes this seriousness whenever she studies, which probably ac- counts for the fact that she always has her work done much more quickly than most of us. lvlinerva has ability along several lines, lit- erary work for one, her toast at our Freshman banquet and her .poem on "Prom Men" having brought her much distinction. We wish that she would favor us with more of her writings. GENEVA , N. Y , DIOLLY CLARKE GILBERT. Molly is a- maiden with hobbies. Gloves, matinee-s and dusty millers are her principal ones. Cares rest lightly on Molly's head and she never worries except- when the weekly letter from her C?y doesn't COIl16. Molly likes men, too, but she must have variety. She also has a great fondness for souvenirs, if one may judge from the number she brought back from a recent trip to a. nearby university town. RHODA A. GODF KEY. AvoN, ,N. Y. LEXVISTON, N. Y. How could our caste be complete without a fairy? Now Rhoda is as "little as a minute but as pretty as a picture." She plays the part of a- dainty fairy Queen who charms and wins whomsoever she sees. 'We sometimes wonder if the real fairyland is at Ithaca for she is al- ways tripping away for a few days and coming back with alluring tales of Cornell, Cornell. And sometimes she uses the personal pronoun HE. But then Rhoda is very quiet about such things. I' wonder 'whether other fairies wear diamond rings. I ,guess they all have American beau- ties. FRAXC HALL. DIARGARET E. HART. 4: Laugh and the world laughs with ' you, Xveep and you weep alone." This seems to be Margaret's view of! the world. The Class of 1910,s drama. would nor be Complete with- out this jolly girlg for she is al- ways good-naturecl, happy and ready for fun even when she has heaps of note-book work to be done in a moderately short time. She's splendid to cheer you up. Re- cently she's taken to basketball. She ought to succeed for she's tall and that's a good point, so says our -Tunior Captain. 36 S 3 ALPINE, N. YQ One need only look at Franc's picture to learn the strength and loveliness of her character. Con- scientious in everything she does, ready always to see the noblest in everyone, inspiring those about her by the practical goodness of her life she exeris an ennobling in- fluence on us all, an influence which cannot fail to remain with us always. ELDII RA. N Y. HARRIET A. 1-LUBBELL. ELLIIRA, N, Y, "'0h, well-I should say-" Hold still and let us see who this sprightly little figure is, and why she goes thus spinning by, so blithe and gay, so light and cheery. XVe smile because she smiles and we are happy because she shares her joy and bestows upon each her tokens of love. Per- haps she, too, is one of the fairy band. But there comes that ques- tion again: "Do fairies go to 'Proms' and balls and have the 'best time ever-'?" Harriet does. Now she has tripped away. I will not tell you more. You know we love her well. MARY GRACE JEFFERY. LOCKPORT, N. Y. Diary Grace is our dancing girl. She always has had a desire to dress in pink and with her dainty dances to beguile the weary waits between the acts. VVith her easy Grace, a.nd Mary movements we are sure she will captivate all. fAnd should she not, she has her wonderful ability as a pianist to fall back 011.5 If dancing is to be her vocation, 'l'l0WV6V61','S1'l6 must be gay and not think thoughts for- fLoren.J Though she dances so ga-ily, we know the quieter move- ments, and love them, too. 37 BLINNIE FRANCELIA JENKLNS. ELDIIRA. N. Y. FLORENTINE J. KNAPP. The strains of melody died away and Florentine left the piano. Af- ter a short silence a surprised, winsome, little voice was heard to speak as from the keyboard: "Oh, why do you go away, you play so beautifully. The girls love to sing and dance with your music. Per- haps I am selfish to ask you to stay when yoiu- bright and siuiny nature is so much needed every- where. Just the other night I heard the girls say that they al- ways loved to have you around for you are So animated and cheer- ful. You are kind, affectionate and true to your many friends. I hope you will come back soon for the caste' will always be waiting for their musician." A large part of DIinnie's talent lies in elocution, another part in being nice and agreeable to every- body even when she is most busy and a. third part, in being able to answer whenever called upon. 'We don't see her much of the time lately because she's studying Edu- cational Classics. She is one of the most sensible girls in college and talks and recites in a plain, straightforward fashion, as if she meant every word she said. A girl of strong principles and one who has her own ideas of 'Woma-n's Rights. VVAVERLY, N. Y. IMARGARET ELIZABETH LAN GLEY. DETROIT, DITCH. The University of Michigan has done many noteworthy things. Foremost among them it sent. us Margavrer. in her sophomore year. Perhaps it realized that we need- ed some one to teach us that 'fthe person who does the most makes the least fuss about it? for in her preparation of the Freshman pos- ters, in the management of the Junior-Senior sleighride. as our college settlement representative Margaret has impressed on us the truth of this saying. She has lots of oollege and class spirit and bv her enthusiasm arouses interest in! every enterprise. LAURA C. MANLEY. ELDIIRA, N. Y. Laura is one of the last to join us. She came in September to be a Junior with the rest of us and there is mutual adoption. She's purely original and believes in ask- ing questions and venturing re- marks when she d0esn't under- stand bits of information. VVe ad- lnire her for her ability in over- coming obstacles and envy her that sense of humorqwhich enables her to see the funny side of things. FLORENCE E. MCCABE. YVEST PITTSTON, PA- "Therc is joy in every corner of this dc-ar old world of ours." Florence is just the one who finds it. The warmth of her sun- ny nature imparts to all a hit of love and good-will. She smiles at us in the morning, She smiles at us all day She cheers us by her smiling In a thousand different ways. VVith this same persistent spirit her responsibilities are assumed. This we iirst discovered from the way in which she fulfilled her du- ties as treasurer in the first year of the company's orgmiization. Her excellent business faculty ever places her at the head of commit- tees. She works for us at Prom time She works for Junior spreads, She is always a. ready worky Even in stupid "Ilabs." GEHTRUDE L. MORRISON. VVATERTOVVN, N. Y. "A countenance in which did meet, Sweet records, promises as sweet." A sympathetic, appreciative, lov- ing girl, who wins Our adection by her composed and gentle manner. She is one of our patient, untiring workers. Ever since we wrote our da-ily themes we have felt that her success lay in that iield. Those who Xknow Gertrude may be sur- prised to learn that lately she has reached that stage in which she prefers to ffdance than eat." Such is the effect of the two-step upon her. 40 GE RTRUDE L. O'DELL. Dear Gertrude: Yes, I think ninvtccn hours this be enough. You semester will mustn't try to study cveryl'-hing in the catalogue. I'm afraid that you are too ambitious. I am glad that you are cheering up that poor little freshman of whom you wrote. D0 you remember the blue wall paper and other things just as blue in your Freshman room? Doesn't it Seem it dream now? XVould it make you vain if I should tcll you what an Elmira. girl said? "Gertrude is one of thc most cheerful and most comforting girls in college. 'When we have the blues, Gertrude has only to say: 'VVhy, y0u poor child!' and we im- mediately feel better." Don't study too hard on your Greek. Auf W'iedc-rsehn, June. ALICE LODEIVIA RAFTER. XVEBSTER, N. Y. NORTH TONAVVANDA, ,N . Y. She Lodema dotes on heroes. likes them tall and slim and dark, with scars. L0dema's hero have a. scar-thatls why Lancelot is her idea-l for you must remem- ber, he was ffseamea with an an- cient sword cut on the cheek." 'Bedelia' is always busy, usually writing letters for she has "Ml-. A. and Mr. B. and Mr. C. and Mr. D. and then, of course, some of the girls to write bo." She likes fun, too, and Junior spreads are her de- light, but we fear that the menu d0esn't always satisfy her for she's always wishing for Ham. must PHEOBE s. REESE. EAST CREEK, N- Y- lVhcn the caste becomes dis- couraged it is Pheobe who tells us that perseverance wins success. She has that "danntless courage," trusts in the golden future, and covers trouble with it smile. Be- hind those studious looks there lurks ai great propensity for fun and besides the counselingxwords she has a store-house nlled with wit.. She will never use her sense of humor so as to get herself into trouble though, and indeed it is doubtful whether such a result will ever be incurred by her talk- ing. Conscientious in all things, perhaps she has resolved to be conscientious in the abundant use of words. DIARTHA GRACE RICHARDS. SALEBI, OHIO. High on the Aventinc Hill, towers the temple of Minerva Here dwells om' Goddess of wis- dom, Grace, the wise girl from the West. From her do we gain much knowl- edge and understanding of art and science, From her do we ever learn why and feel that such answer is best. Rightly is she looked upon as greatest of sages and prophets. Vvisely do we all strive to learn all her methods and ways. And yet not displaying her wis- dom, but dwelling 'in peace and gladness Grace lives among us much loved, and honored most high- ly with A's. 42 .MABEL IMARIE . RYAN . Your wonderful versatility will make you indispensable to the success of our drama and were it not for your unselfish and loving nature we might almost be envious of the girl who C311 Star in mathe- matics as well as in "As You Like Itgf' who can sing grand opera as well as play end man in our min- strel showsg who can comfort her COIIIDEI-lli0IlS when they're ill as well as terrorize her opponents at baslnetba-llg who can be leader of a german as well as business man- ager of the Iris and do all these things so well as to make the name of Mabel Ryan the all suiiicing en- dorsement of any enterprise. AMORY, Miss. DIARGARET ELIZABETI-I SACKETT. AVON, AN. Y. Margaret-a pearl. To be sure, the pearl of the Juniors. She must be our SIUTLIHCI' girl-because for this her past experience has emi- nently fitted her. Peggie doesn't have much time to practice her part though. She is so busy with her two new productions entitled l'Ma,il Service in the Far VVest," and "VVhat Makes a. Prom WOPE11 VVhile." Many copies have already been spoken for. Although at first we might' consider authorship as slightly removed from Peggie's line, still what is so valuable for works of this kind as actual ex- perience? GRACE SEABIAN. EDNA LOUISE SHEPARD. This is our maiden Priscilla, and we repeat what John Alden and Miles Standish said of their Pris- cilla. She is: "Modest and simple and sweet" and "Patient, courageous and strong." All the heroines of the play ma-rry brave knights, so may-be our Louise will carry out her part but he must be truly noble, else we won't consent, for she is not only dear to us but very useful. How c0uld we get pictures for our Iris without her help or live with- out her song and cheer! ST. JOHNSVILLE, ,N. Y. lVhen the class ol' 1910 launched its bark on the sea of college ac- tivity, it naturally chose a seaman to be its pilot. She was a fair and sweet and unassuming pilot who guided her era-ft by gentle- ness and ruled her crew by love. So it happened that other ships came to feel the need of "Grace" and now we have to share her with HIHIOSE every other college organi- zation. Grace is our advisor in all undertakings and by her wise and careful counsel we always abide. Lately she seems much interested in the welfare Of the Freshmen. Is it possible that she has admit- ted the word "crush" to her vo'- cabulary at last? IVIONTOUR FALLS, N. Y. RUBY I-I. SDIITEI. EIJDIIRIK, N- Y' The audience cheers! D0 you ask why? Our athletic' girl has up- pea-red. She spends the sunnner in mountain Climbing and aquatic- sporls and ret-urns to us in the fall with at ruddy glow on her eheeks. Happily she again restunes her work and day after day she may be seen coming up Main Street with an armful of books. Ruby is naturally quiet and reserved. so that for her the college year pass- es sn1o0thly and she is off to the lakes again. That is where she finds her true enjoyment and no doubt there she will iind both fame and fate. IMAUDE A. SN YDER. ELDIIRA, N. Y. Maude is a veritable ray of sun- shine in herself. ,No matter how nluch Educational Classics she may have to write up, or how many twigs she may have be classify, she always has time for a smile and a cheerful word. She never was known to lose her patience, not even when we interrupt her pop- ular "Lit" parties. Maude makes a perfectly great 'fman' and is al- ways in demand for our dramas. In 'fact a "dress suit" is one of the essentials of Maude's wardrobe. 45 ANNA M. THOMPSON. ETJMTRA, N. Y- D-ly Dear Anna: Just a. note to ask you if you won't favor us with your sunny presence more often. Xve have so many places in our caste that you could fill admirably, but your unassuming nature keeps you from asserting yourself. Isn't that it? WVe think it is, for the girls who know you best have told us. Then, too, 00ulcln't you tell us how to obtain a complexion like yours? WVe are all so envious of your lovely coloring. D0 answer and tell us. Your Classmates of 1910. KATHERINE E. VAN DUZER. HORSEHEADS, N. Y. "Katy did." "Katy dicln't." "Katy did." That was the song once upon a time. But listen to what else was said as the quarrel went on whether she smiled at them or not. "I know her. She comes on the car from Horseheads every morning and she always looks so pleasant that I sing my prettiest song for her. Up in the big building on the hill everybody likes her. They like to hear her laugh. She must be awfully smart because she camfies a book with funny little marks in it. It isu't English and I can't make it out. One day I saw her by a window where she sat looking through a little glass at something she call- ed bacteria. Hark! Someone is coming! Good-bye." 46 ANNA IM. YVEEDEN. DEXTEIQQ N' Y. We would advise Anna to change her name before going among strangers because it took us such a. long time to learn to pronounce and to spell it. I be- lieve we have mastered it at last. Some people say that she is quiet, but those are the ones who have never heard her talk about her fa.- voritcs. From her description you might iniagine her world made up of saints. I believe she finds the best in everybody and strives to give to them an earnest, sincere friendship. JULIA E. WVIGGINS. NICHOLS. N, Y. Julia is our "student volunteer," perhaps not in the sense in which these words are ordinarily used, but at least she is ready whenever t-he opportunity comes to express herself. 'We prophesy a brilliant career for her as an artist, and evi- dences of her ability as such may be foimd among the pages of this illustrious volume. In our caste she plays the part of a pure little quaker. ' 1 47 EDIDIA A. WILSON. MILLEP-TON, PA- Emmat very fitly acts the part of "Cousin" in our drama.. She and Bertha have alwavys seemed insep- arable, even their schedules are the same. She enjoys French quite as much as Bertha. In fact, she finds pleasure in almost everything: often by the means o-f a little phil- osophy. No doubt she has learned the wisdom of having "crushes" At least one, thus entitled, has gained the benefit of her hospital- ity. ' CLASS SONG FOR 1910 Tune-"The Eton Boating Song." Happy days at college, Classmates from far and near, 'Though we seek for knowledge, Friendships we hold more dear. QGHORUSJ Friends, friends together - XVe'l1 always be true at heart.

CO WLES There is a saying that no nation prospcrs who does not honor her old nien. This may be true of colleges as well as of nations and the spirit of loyalty and love for Dr. Cowles will help to prosper Elmira College. , The fact that 'we were the last class to come under his instruction before he resigned his profcssorship to accept the retiring pension of the Carnegie Foundation gives us a particular interest in him. Much has already been written of his life and work after he came to Elmira, so we here attempt to give some of the facts of his earlier life. My first knowledge of Dr. Cowles, save some slight mention, came to me through a loyal alumna. One moonlight evening a couple of weeks before I came to Elmira, as we let our b0at drift with the current of a little lake, she told me about College. She drew pictures of what were soon to become my realities. One picture on which she dwelt with a loving tenderness was that of Dr. Cowles. She told me of the zest he seemed to feel for his work, his remarkable talent in art, his wonderful memory, the kind interest he took in each girl, his cheery manner, his vigorous health and the quaint little shrug of his shoulders. I knew him readily from her description when I saw him at chapel exercises on the opening of college. I watched higm as he joined in singing the hymn, noted the peace and joy in his face and yes, I noted, too, the quaint little shrug of his shouldei-s.'i 'When one day he led the chapel exercises and made the prayer I felt a reverent peace steal over me and mentally ejaculated: 'fThe prayer' of a righteous man availeth much." Soon our class began their work under him in Biblical Literatiwe. Some lessons which he taught us we can never forgot as the lecture on obedience. XVIICH at the expiration of the first semester of that year he resigned, our class, dismayed at their loss, still congratulated themselves than they had enjoyed his instruction during the last half year of his teaching. That 'in itself was a. great privilege and one we grow more and more to appreciate. Contact with faculty and others who have known him stimulates our admiration. Dr. Blat' Kenzie secnls ever, by influence and often by personal comment, ,to desire to make the girls feel the truest loyalty to Dr. Cowles and also to appreciate his rare purity, wis- dom, and the gifts of life and love which he has so freely given to the college. And now, although Dr. Cowles comes less often among us he has the same warm interest in the college and students. In compliance with a request from the class of ,1910 he graciously told me the reminis- censes given below: i'My father, Alvah Cowles canie to this state from Norfolk, Litch- field Co., Conn., with his young wife, Harriett XVoodrutl', who was from Xllestville, Conn., a suburb of New Haven. 4'At the time of my birth my father lived near Xlfatkins north of the farm of Captain Diven on which General A. S. Diven was born. "I was born July 12 1819, the first of six children, four sons and two daughters. One daughter died in infancy. The other. BI1-s. John H. Dey of Pelham Manor, N. Y.. with me for many years survived the rest of the fainily. I had l'ew playmates and was lcl't to my own resources for 89 amusement. I busied myself by cutting out figures from plain paper and pasting theni on the window. The second stage of 1ny art-practice in child play was t.racing pictures in outline held up against the window- pane and then perfecting them later. Thus form and figure were strong- ly impressed on my memory and I formed a vivid pictorial imagination, the best possible basis of art-education. "My mother taught me to read before I ever SZIXV a school. I can recall distinctly my first day at school and the first sentence I read there from Webster's Speller which was 'No man may put. off the lzuw of God! This was in Geneva, for my parents moved there just before I was three years old. My first remembered experience is of a. voyage on the lake from Geneva to Watkins and I can clearly recall being lifted from the deck of the schooner into a row-boat on reaching lvatkins. My second memory of consciousness is of the funeral of my little sister. I can rementber the shape and color of the cofiin and the sober faces or the people. "When I was five years old my mother took me to sec the crowds which welcomed General La Fayette. Geneva at that time was the largest village and of the most culture west of Utica. There was no Syracuse, no Rochester, no Buffalo. O11 this occasion a very large c1'owd was assembled including a. vast and imposing array of mil- itary companies from lVestern New York. I could now read pretty well and I can remember reading the names on the triumphal arch 'Wash- ington and La Fayette' One very distinct memory in connection with the day is that of a company of small boys with crescent-shaped caps and tin swords who called themselves the La Fayette Guards. I dis, tinclly remember seeing the General shaking hands with the people. "My father was a man of reinarkably strong and active intellect and was a great reader.. Although he worked hard he sat up late to read. He made an arrangement whereby he could get the exchanges which came to the newspaper office and used to bring home armfuls of them to read. He was also a great reader of the Bible. He was about the most penetrating and thorough reader I have known among laymen and was also a thorough Christian. He became a contracting builder and employed many men, a number of whom boarded in our home. In spite of this and though my father became such an extremely busy man, I can- not remember that family prayers were ever omitted before breakfast for any pressure of haste or business. ' "Although frail and undersized for my age as a child, I had out- grown my infantile weaknesses and was in fairly good health so that when twelve years of age I was able to take up my studies. I began the study of Latin and Greek at thirteen. At sixteen I was ready for Yale, but was too young and did not have the money to go. My father ob- tained a position for me in a dry goods store in Geneva, where for two years I kept books and learned business. My employer was a man of exceptionally fine' character, a. prominent elder in the church and one of the best men I have ever known in all my long life. The experience in this store was of great value to me for I was painfully bashful and oppressed with reverence, for those I regarded as superior. I was still keeping on with my studies, however, and at the end of t-wo years re- turned to the academy where, with six other young inen, we formed a Freshman class for college work according to the Yale curriculum. Thus my freshman year of college work was done at Geneva, in what was called the Geneva Lyceum. The next year, in September, 1838, I entered the Sophomore class at Union College in Schenectady. Here I studied Italian and French in addition to the regular studies of the class. 90 One of the professors at Union found out my artistic talent and employ- ed me to enlarge illustrations for his class work. This was a very wel- come help in paying my way, as I was entirely dependent on my own l'0S0ll1'CCS. Another source of revenue was from painting miniatures on ivory." Here Dr. Cowles, to supplement a description of his personal ap- pearance, showed me a minlattu'e he had inade of himself and said: "I had fox-colored hair, black eyes and brown whiskersf' The picture showed the face of a. young inan of about twenty, having an alert, rc- tlned, attractive face, with a fascinating air of genius about it. "My friends, who were artists, became much interested in 1ny work in art and wanted me to go to New York to pursue this study. A New York artist of large acquaintance with artists said to me: 'Xfour road to eminence in art will be short and easy! But I remember thinking, what would it all amount to if I always painted pictures? I might possibly attain to some renown. Some few persons might derive enjoyment from my work, but how niuch would the world be benefitted by my life? Here I felt drawn toward the ministry. Nearly all my fellow students were Christian young men. My early life had been highly religious, not through any marked stage in spiritual growth, but through a gradu- al strengthening and deepening. For several years 1 had considered the ministry. There had been a distinct religious atmosphere in all my as- sociations with students and in the store where I had spent two years as mentioned above. A large per cent. of my class in college were prepar- ing for tl1e nlinistry. Throughout n1y college course I had the min- istry in mind. Art was a delightful accomplishment and a favorite amusement. All through llly 1ife I have adopted the philosophy that the higher faculties of the mind 11ecd play and recreali-ve amusement. Art and inusic are even more than bodily athletics. Even the play of child- hood wears outg but this is not true of art and music. For many years I practiced with considerable success the flute and violin. "I have always told the girls of my classes that we should be very thankful for the faculty of mirth. No animal except man knows how to laugh. Humor was intended to be one of the elements of happiness. It can, however, be abused by perversion and by excess. "In 1841 I was graduated from college and took charge of an Acad- emy in Schoharie County. There I had to teach almost everything. l taught classes in French, Italian, Latin and Greek, as well as 1-ligher Algebra, Geometry, Chemistry, etc., etc.-I I had only one assistant. I also taught for a time in Schenectady in the Schenectady Lyceum. "In 1843 I went to ,New York and entered the Union Theological Seminary. I soon obtained a position as teacher of drawing in the Ab- bott brothers' famous school for young ladies. This School was in charge of three in-otliers-Jacob, John S. C., and Gorhain D. QAbbot-tt., Jacob Abbott was the father of Dr. Lyman Abbott, whom I remember as a. boy. While here I furnished original drawings for publication for the Abbott's drawing cards. At that time this ,yvas considered one of the ve1'y best and most advanced schools for young women. The students were g'l'0XVll-up young ladies. "Jacob Abbott had a- Virgil class and always read the translation for the next dayfs lesson when he gave out the assignment. He went over the proofs in Geometry in the same way in anticipation of thc next dayis lesson. Bly Theological studies were finished in 1846. "In 1846 I accepted a call to Brockport in Monroe County, N. Y. 91 X There I was married in 1817, at the age of 27, taking a lamb from my own flock. I remained there for ten years. .b'1'0ll1 Brockport I came to I-Ilmira in 1856. "Bly Iirst interest in higher education for women ca-me through Il' sermon 1 llC2ll'aI'i by Dr. T. ll. Skinner, then the leading Pres- byterian minister of New York City. Dr. Skinner brought out tl1e idea that the loving submission of a child to a loving mother is exactly iden- tical with the love that God requires of us.' This led me to ponder on the importance of properly trained Christian mothers. The way I came to know of Ehnira was a bit romantic. A nlinisterial friend who had been a. fellow student and who had become district secretary of the Ainerican Tract Society in Mobile, Alabama, visited me in Brockport and staid over Sunday and preached for me. lfle was looking for a wife and was on his way to Geneva to see a daughter of Professor Boyd, who really was the principal literary founder of Elmira College. lie was an author employed by Harpers and had declined the presidency of El- mira. College. Ile lived in ailluence in Geneva and did not care tow change his life by coming to Elmira and assuming the duties of the ollice otl'ered him. Bly friend mentioned my name to him and I soon received a. letter from .Professor Boyd which opened our correspondence in the Summer of 1855. "In September, 1855, I made my tirst visit to Elmira to look over the ground. A rather amusing circumstance, connected with my tirst entrance into the college, was that I paid twenty-tive cents to get in. It was at the time ot' the annual State Fair which was held in this city and since this was probably the tiniest school building in the state outside ot New York City, at that time, the trustees of the college had thought. many people would wish to look over the building. This seemed to atford an opportunity to raise some money, so visitors paid twenty-live cents for the privilege of going through the building and a lunch was served to them in the basement. I arrived in the city late at night and arose early the next morning and after an early breakfast, came up to the building before the crowd of the day was stirring. I' paid my fee without explaining who I was and looked about the place. I found Miss Thurston in charge of a most excellent seminary for young ladies. She was a superior , woman whom I had known as assistant principal of Mrs. Riardfs school in Geneva and when I went to Brockport I found her there and again here at Elmira. "1 was elected to the presidency of the college by the board ot' trus- tees in 1855, but on asking the advice of the presbytry they voted with one exception to have nie remain in the ministry. Therefore I declined and returned to iny pulpit. But I was led to reconsider this decision after further correspondence with Mr. Benjamin and finally accepted the appointment in April, 1856. I moved here with my family early in July and was inaugurated at a public meeting August 7, 1856." These facts are very interesting as showing the preparation which Dr. Cowles had before llc! took up his work here at Elmira and also as showing some of the inllitences which led him to champion the higher education forwvomen which then had so few champions. Lastly they are interesting to us because they are facts concerning one whom we love and reverence. -Franc Hall. ' 92 X!

THE ELBIIRA DELEGATION . A DIOUNTAIN TRIP AT SILVER BAY 99 JULE Far in the North ol' Canada. lived little Jule Daret-t. She was only fourteen, but she already knew the meaning ot' sorrow and responsibility. .Her mother had been dead nearly a year and in the l'ather's wisdom a preparatory school seemed to be the best. means whereby a home lite, culture and education might be obtained l'or his little daughter.. So Jule was separated even from her father. He reasoned that she would be quite happy with the many little girls of her age. Ile did not know ol' the Iongings l'or sympathy and love that crept into this lonesome heartg he did not know ol' the lonely hours and the heartaches that must come to a child of Juli-'s disposition. who was separated from at l1on1e circle, and the parents' tender care. Jule was so brave that she always seemed quite happy and when Mr. Darett came he was always told that she was contented. Yet she was not so very happy 'and often stole away to talk over her troubles with herself and God. One day Jule had gone to her l'avorite arbor. As she sat there pon- dering about her mother, she happened to think of a cousin whom her mother had told her lived in the Sunny South. Jule had always thought Cousin Sarah must be quite ideal and now the spark of affection grew brighter and brighter until she gained courage to write to her. Xvith eager anticipation and hopeful longing she sent this little letter to her cousin, who was in a Southern college: "Dear Cousin Sarah: '4A1'e you surprised at ine writing to you? To tell the truth, I ant rather lonely to hear from lny oldest young lady cousin. I have never felt so grown up before. I long to see you because mamma used to say you were a. darling. Are you? Do you like to go to school? Aren't you tired of it? If we go East this sununer, would you come back with us, it' I coaxed papa to let you? I could indeed give you a. good time. You Could take my pony-a. frisky creature-and learn to ride astride, and then we would go riding every day. I would teach you to swim. -in the sulphur basin fatter I had learned myselfj, and in the winter you could skate and toboggan to your heartis content, Oh, yes, I would take you out to the Sareee reserve to see all the Indians, and their teepecs, and funny painted horses and their pow-wows and everything. "There is a saying: 'School days are your happiest! lvell, if that is so, I would like to see the rest of lny days soon. I am very happy ex- cept when I quarrel, when I ery, am lonesome or get bad marks Qwhieh is not ofteul. Are you quite happy? Are many girls there? Do write me soon and tell nie you will come to Canada to live with us. Hlvith lots ot' love, "JULIE DARETTJ' Cousin Sarah was a dear, thoughtful girl and when she received this letter which had been t'orwarded to her at college, she felt very guilty because she had not remembered little Jule in her trouble. ' Now she- wrote Jule often and did not ecase to consider how she might be able to make the little life happier. Easter vacation came and still Sarah was making plans and forming projects. All these air-castles Cas she thought best to call theml were confided to her mother. Mrs. Loring was very much interested in the pathetic story and Jule's sad letters. Could Sarah 100 believe it. The most beautiful of air-castles, the one which proposed that Jule should have her home in the South, was bound to become a reality. Sai-alrg mother was as enthusiastic about. having a. new daughter as Sarah was about having a new sister. The next summer Mr. Darett traveled south with Jule. To her, the southern home proved to he a great delight, and the strange eousin from the north was iininediately loved by all the Loring family. llappy in summer and winter, Jule grew beautiful in both body and spirit. llers was a vigorous. joyous. gifted nature whieh united gentleness, sweetness and allection. Persistent- ardonr gave her success in her school work so that in four years she was well prepared for eollege. Sat-ah's was the thosen Alma Mater. Here Jule tilled a plaee similar to that which Sarah had held among the girls. During all the four years, her bright, sweet disposition, her sympathetic nature and beautit'ul mind inade her much- loved by both the instructors and pupils. Tile College graduate was again welcomed into the lloring home as a. member ot' the family. She had grown into pure womanhood. She was now ready to do her life workg the tield must: be ehosen. Then arose the temptation whieh must be met by so many of us, to live to herseltg but she saw the need of the world, and she felt most keenly the sup- pliant, eall of some little girls far in the ,North of Canada-in her own tTornter home. She hastened to answer the eall with the purpose of lwinging to them a living love, the tender 4-are and needed .sympathy whit-li she had so missed there. And how could Jule, whose ability and ambition enabled her to succeed in any pursuit fail in accomplishing this purpose? Almost immediately the girls of the preparatory school recog- nized in her a guide, counselor and friend, one who was living with and t'or them. Loneliness, diseout-agement and sorrow all disappeared under Miss Jule's sweet intluenee. Contidenee, trust and love guided the ehild- ish hearts. Miss Jule had made the lit'e at the sehool very ditTerent t'or them and t'or herself than when as a homeless, motherless ehild she had longed t'or Cousin Sarah and the South. f, X 101 iLH5t will HUD WIESIHUIBUI I, THE GHOST OF THE OCTAGON of Elmira College, being of sound mind and memory, do make, publish and declare this my last.

And the very wise Sophs, as they looked on in glee, Said: "Look what we've done, surely victors are we." But the Spirit Diseordant soon solxred out a, plan To quench the vain pride of the Sophomore clan, And he whispered real loud in the young Freslnnexvs "Just leave off your fillets-you need have no fears." The result of this counsel occasioned surprise, The Sophs came to chapel and opened their eyes. The Freshmen were seated, each one in her place- Ol' fillets of green there was seen not a trace. The Sophs were perplexed, 'twas a question 'tis true. They said: "Ask the faculty what we shall do,', But rather than eause extra work for the Dean, CZ! l'S The Freshmen once more donned their fillets ol' green. 106 X!

The subject of conversation turned naturally upon girls. "I'1l wager all girls are not curious. lVe think we must accept this applied curiosity as al fact merely because it is traditional." "But I bet you won't find many of them who conceal their curiosity. It's the girl, you knowff 'flvhat will you wager? Donlt condemn the fair sex so horribly." "See here, fellows," spoke up Gordon Keith, "are you game for a- lark? XVe'll try a.nd solve this riddle of won1an's curiosity at Mrs. I lake- llliIl1ll,S house party. XVe'1l have ample opportunity. Iflere's a scheme! Letis use a bunch of' red carnations-make it mysterious someway and see whether everyone of them tloesn't ask a. dozen times what it all means. Every time they ask we'll give them a carnat-ion. I'l1 vouch that each will have quite a boquetf' The other boys listened with eager interest and when he had finish- ed, they showed their approval by slapping him soundly on the back with "You're a. brick, old l'ellow"g "Bully SCIXCIIICHQ HC0l'k.lllg Fun,",cte. They were ready for anything which offered a little excitement. ri: 22 X1 Friday afternoon and Dlrs. Lakeniann was bustling around, seeing that everything was properly aranged in her already apple-pie orderly house, taking a "last look," as she said to Polly the maid. A sudden shout outside announced the arrival of the young people and Mrs. Lake- mann hastened to the door, flinging it wide open. The boys and girls shouted a merry greeting in chorus and flocked into the house, laughing and talking all in one breath. The hostess soon hustled them off up- stairs to dress for the grand dinner to be given that night in honor of their arrival. Q At a, quarter to six, five well-dressed, young men were assembled in the library, each wearing a red carnation. They stood in a little group, Gordon in the center, talking softly. As the girls came down stairs the other boys fell back. K1 "Girls," Gordon said, assuming a serious expression, "it is requested that you touch not the red carnations in the hall. They are awarded only why, when and how you will learn later. 'Till then be contentff The girls looked at each other, they looked at the boys. It happen- ed that no one said a word. Gordon continued, for he thought he could soon win his point. "It is a great mystery. Stand forth, with 'right hand upheld and promise me not to touch the forbidden fruit-the flowers.', There was a hurried consultation among the girls with expressive gestures and exclamations. "Yes, yes, we promise," they finally agreed. , f'And whenever you receive a. carnalion DlC21Se wear it." They assnted, though somewhat reluctantly. "lVe might as well submit, I suppose, girls, and we don't mind a joke anyway do we?'f Caroline Lawrence added. "No, but fair play, boys," cried Betty. "Right you are, fair play," Dick Sherman answered, laughing. "Now 108 hurrah for dinner," and Dick led the way followed by the rest of the party. To tl1e annoyance of most of the boys dinner passed without a word being said about the carnations. After dinner Helen suggested a dance and Mrs. Lakemann played a. lively two-step. Through the open win- dows a cool breeze laden with the inviting fragrance of blossoms, fanned their faces. Soon, one by one, the dancers vanished, leaving Mrs. Lake- mann playing for two people, so absorbed in their own chat that they did not miss t-he others. Seeing she was detrop, the hostess quietly slip- ped into the library. About nine o'cloek the next morning the girls gathered about the breakfast table with expectant faces as the boys had promised that the mystery of the red carnation should be explained then. Betty and Helen were the sole possessors of the carnations. Gordon had kept his courage even up to this point. He thought this was the final chance for the girls to attempt the solution of the problem. But Betty and Helen were evi- dently to be the only vietims, for Betty, unable to restrain her curiosity, broke out: "Come, boys, tell us. You know that we are just wild to hear about it." "Yes," Helen said, "I should like to know why we are the only ones who have the carnations?" The fellows looked at Gordon. The plan had been his so he must explain. Needless to say, he was not pleased with the task, for the result had been so utterly different from the one which he had expected. "Girls," Gordon couragously began, 'fyou may think we've tried to take rather mean advantage of you, but I must eonfess we have the 'Ha. Hal' We got in an argument the other night about-well-womanits curiosity and we just used the carnation each time it was dsplayed. You may draw your own conclusions. Now, please don't get sore at us and we'll declare a trucei' ' The girls, rejoiced at their general vieto1'y, laughed. 'iTal1: about lV0lll2lll7S curiosity," seolded Betty, Uwe a,ren't one-half so inquisitive as you men, so there. Didn't your own curiosity prompt this game?" 2 f'Carnations certainly talk in this ease, ah fellows?" laughed Dick. "As Gordon said, 'Peace is declared' and as for earnations-well-eight gi1'ls have saved the clay for womankind, and we say hurrah for the eight -and-blessings on thee,-Red Carnation! 109 JUNIOR ALPHABET A is for Atwater, Accurate, airy- Ayres the artist so fine- Beck, Burt and Butler Begin with 21 B Bashful, bankrupled, benign.

Now the new onefs name was Ellen, Ol' distinguished bearing she And a curl she had unruly Which escaped quite frequently. XVe have often seen. it written- Thoughts are mirrored in the faee. Ellen's thoughts were far beyond us Much too far for us to ri-at-e. It is said. one night at dinner Every damsel seated there XVot-e upon her slim ring linger Each a diamond solitaire. Ellen's face 1-onlin-med suspicion "It is true," they cried in glee, ' XVhen she sits in deep abstraction H 'Tis ot' him. she thinks. 'Tis he!" But, alas this fait' one left us As we knew she would in time, And our anxious voices questioned "XVl1o will be the next in line?" Xvho shall say what thoughts assailed us Vlhen returning there we saw A perfect likeness of the first one Ellen's name was Mary now. Glasses, manner, bearing, curl, All exactly as before. Had they fooled us, tricked, deceived Even Ellen's voice she bore. But we were not long left doubting, Tho, her smile were just as gay, There was something in her actions, Seemed to take our doubt away. So we came at last to know her As we had the other twin. In her honor Doctor Highet Had town folks invited in. To her now With good intention Do we dedicate this rhyme. XVe could well prolong it further But we really haverft time. 114 ll This page was intended for jokes, but owing to the xvitlidrawal of Doctor Radford from the faculty, the Iris Board has not been able to find material. 115 THE NOBLEST DEED The greatest excitement prevailed in Fairyland, for a. most unusual thing had happened. The Queen's co1u'iers had gone forth into every 4-ave and nook of the kingdom and hidden all subjects to appear before Her Blajesty on the following day. "What rauit mean," they said to themselves. "It's a whole year yet until a new Queen is crowned. Surely this is very mysteriousf' And still thinking. each one made ready to appear next day at the Royal Grotto. The fairies assembled early and impatiently awaited the arrival of their Sovereign. After a time the flourish of trumpets Ca-me from the palace and in a moment, the royal procession came in sight. First the musicians. of course, whose lively music re-echoed through the forest.. Then the little flower girls, their arm laden with blossoms, then the Queen's ladies-in-waiting, followed by the members of her royal council, beautiful in their white gowns of shimmering satin embroidered in but- terflies. Last of all came Queen Aranea herself with greatest dignity in her long cloak of velvet, and ermine, the train of which was carried by small pages. The sun's rays fell at just the angle best suited to bring out the vivid coloring of the procession against the splendid natural setting of the grotto, and the fairies were awed at the grandeur and solemnity of the scene before them. The Queen mounted her throne and addressed the gathering. "My loyal subjects," she said, "you know of course that a, year from today my reign is over. Hitherto it has been the custom for the retiring sovereign to place the crown on the head of that one of her council whom she deems most worthy. For ine it would be a. ditheult thing to do. Each of my four nearest officials has served me faithfully and well and I would hesitate to say who is the most deserving of the crown. For that reason I have devised a scheme which will make it easier for me to pass judg- ment. and which I hope will meet with your approval. Listen! The four members of my Council shall for one year reside on earth, at the end of that time they shall return to Fairyland and she, who, in my judgment, has performed the noblest deed for man shall be your Queen." The fairy subjects shouted approbation and the Queen continued, turning to her council: "You have heard what I have said, you know your duty. Go, and when you feel that you have done this noblest deed, return and a year from today be present in this grotto where I, with my subjects. shall pass judgment. Now. farewell to all." :lz rl: :ls 21 In the well-filled library of his suburban home Arthur Edson, au- thor, sat until long after midnight, thinking: "Of, if it would only come," he said to himself, "tha-t thought, that inspiration I need to bring me fame. I am acknowledged among the literary critics of today to be a mas- ter of style. And yet I am not able to choose just that theme which is of universal interest, which will take a hold on the hearts of men. I feel with niy fellow creatures, 1ny sympathies are most acute and yet just that one phase of human interest which I would convey in iny writings.a,nd feel that my very soul was being expressed therein is so vague within me that it bids defiance to expression." V Mr. Edson retired. but not to rest. 'He thought and pondered and 116 finally when he sank into a troubled sleep he dreamed of a' hlgh mounf tain on whose top was emblazoned FAME and he at the foot, was held bound, powerless to go on, for though he possessed the key which might unlock his shackles he knew not how to use it. He awoke with a start and in the silence tried again to think. Across his mind, like u Hash came that inspiration for which he had yearned. And 'neath the guidance of the lllorning Star a Fairy winged its way back homet. P? F44 X S1 222 bk It was the day of the animal athletic meet in the city of Cumberland. Thousands of people had assembled at the athletic grounds and every one was tense with excitement. The purses otfered, as prizes in the different events were very large and for this reason, perhaps as much as becauge the contestants were all very nearly equal in ability, the interest was even greater than usual. The prize in the long-distance running event was the largest, but the contestants were almost all men of more or less wealth. Only one of them wished the money prize for what it could do for him, and over this one, as the starting pistol sounded, hovered an ln- visible spirit, An invisible spirit aided his tight with its wings, breathed courage and determination into his heart, and when he crossed the line victorious, the Fairy Spirit bade farewell to earth. ri: if 25 21 Sk D11-S. XYorth.ington Archibald in an exquisite morning gown which breathed of Paris, sat at the dainty desk in hcr boudolr formulating the plans for her social campaign of the coming winter. There were luncheons and dinners, and bridge parties-all to be very exclusive and splendid but not nearly exclusive or splendid enough to offset the lllllgil.. cale of Mrs. Eyre's at which Mme. Tetrazzini was to sing. Of course lt wasn't the tremendous amount that had to be paid for the singers ser- vices that was to be considered, but Mme. Tetrazzini's presence was a fa- vor bestowed so rarely that it was sutlicient to insure social distinction for whomsoever she favored. And then Lord Barringer was to be the guest of Dlrs. Brownton at a dinner. Surely none of Mrs. Archibald's parties as planned would entitle her to social equality with one who cn- tertained a lord. Q . Mrs. Archibald left her plans for a while and picked up the morn- ing paper. On the very first page she read of the intended visit. to Amer- ica of Prince Frederick of Germany and his wife, Already the society woman's mind was made np. She had met the Prince and Princess at Baden Baden and had been entertained at their place. Yes, they must come to visit her. Xvhere would be Mrs. Eyre and Mrs. Brownton then? Her gay spirit calmed down a little however when she read the paper ntore carefully and found that arrangements were being made to have them entertained in some especial manner each day during their short stay in this country. 'fIt's more than likely they won't. be able to .come il' they want l.o,'f she said to herself, "but I'll write anyway." The letter was received at the Palace, and the Prince had decided that it would be impossible for them to accept Mrs. Arehibald's invita- tion. The Princess, however, was still hopeful that it could be arranged. lt. would be so pleasant she thought after the rousing reception to be given them in New York to rest at least a day in as delightful a spot as MrsL Archibald portrayed her home to be. Surely the people ln America, who were planning for their entertainment would be willing to let them have one day to do as they pleased. 117 The Prince considered the imitation again and as an acceptance was sent across the sea another Fairy journeyed back to Fairyland. 52 The bell for retiring had long since rung and only the footsteps of the night watchman as he made his rounds, broke the awful stillness of the college building, but Eleanor Linden still sat at. her window, think- ing over the happenings of her first month in college. HOI1, why am I so wicked," she was saying to herself. "I simply ean't make myself feel that those 'wadsf that sit next to me in chapel, and in front of me in classes and across from me at the table are beings jllS'J like myself. I know when I speak to them that 'I am infinitely super- ior to you' is written all over me. People hate me and think I'm 'st-ut-k up,' but I just ean't seem to help it. I never realized that my attitude was so sinful until I heard that sermon at church yesterday on 'Love Thy Neighbor as Thyselfi And since then it seems almost as though my whole character had undergone il 1'Cvolution. Somehow llly view of life and love is entirely changed and l'm going to. try"--and a Fairy Spirit smiled and stole away. ik Iii IS Pk 24 QR 21 Once again all Fairyland was assembled in the Royal Grotto. The Queen from her throne, commanded that the members of her council come before her and then in turn she questioned them saying: "Tell me, Fairy Violet, what think you was your noblest deed on earth ? " And Violet answered simply: "I helped a man attain the greatest Fame." "And you, Bright. Dall'odil?,' "I gave a man the power to gain great riches." "And you, Sweet Rose?" HI raised a. woman to the highest sot-ial eininenc-e." "And last of all, 1l'aithl'ul Arbutus, what think you was your noblest deed?" Ullmade a heart to love it's fellow man." And Arbutus reigned with Peace and Gladuess over Fairyland. 118 SIR ARTHUR AT ELMIRA Arthur, hero of the Table Round, In vain for peace had sought in Avalon, For echoes ol' discussions caused on earth By his long past adventures reached him And his brain grew tired. I-Ie heard of long type-written questions, note booksfull Of reasons why he did and spoke and looked This way or that. Things he had done most naturally lVithout the thought that later generations might see fit, To seek deep-rooted reasons for his simplest acts. At last unable to endure it more, One eve he started forth to earth to see If by some means he night secure the peace lvhieh after labor men so well deserve. He sought out first the place where he well knew XVere most discussed his many deeds on earth, Unto the teacher then of Lit. he went. the Dean fOr by some called the Lady 'Prineipalj and said "I am Sir Arthur, and I'm here becuz" ' "Your pardon, Knight." the Dean replied. "your merits I hold high But better 'twere if you would say bc-caw-se." 9 "Be-caw-se," resumed the Knight, "I cannot rest in Avalon." "And why?" from habit interposed the Dean, "the reasons I would know, lvhen did the first feeling of unrest arise? Please trace its course Right from its origin. The essential elements that have tended to increase it, The details of thy spiritual growth all through this time. Then tell me pray, Sir Knight, lVha,t think'st thou as to the moral justification of tl1y Guinevere- The knight grew pale, I thought, he gasped, Then you have changed your mind?" inquired the Dean. But Arthur fell, o'erwhelmed and shrieked in accents Iull of deep despair, "Ye shades of Avalon enfold me. No more shall I seek rest- from my great discontent, But to the Av'lon shades return and dwell And hear my life discussed 'til end ol time." 119 IT'S A XVAY XVE HAVE AT ELMIIIAJ' 120 rf 1, x64-" ijt? 4? 742.1 ga--H f, - xx ',,:. my s is - 'i7"""i 51352515 "H '-N- Qi? ,Qs s... ., 'rg ' - s 'I -LV:-'If f-.4- -Q. ei .i:"".,:"',3'1wf 3-?- -1, , 1 . ,iii 'F-.
