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
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,
Our Patron Saint

0ur heroine! And why should we desire a more eflicient one. '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.

Such a noisy girl! The despair of

entertainment, and then plays well

The very smallest girl in college!
However, the old sa-ying "good

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."

KVhy speak of Florence? She
made herself far renowned in the
caste of "The XVise Young Sopho-
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.

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 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 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
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.

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.

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-
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

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 "

INTERLAKEN, N. Y.
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
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
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.

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

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-

This seems to be Margaret's view

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

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

life she exeris an ennobling in-
fluence on us all, an influence
which cannot fail to remain with

"'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

are sure she will captivate all.

wonderful ability as a pianist to

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

has her own ideas of 'Woma-n's

IMARGARET ELIZABETH LAN GLEY. DETROIT, DITCH.
The University of Michigan has
done many noteworthy things.
Foremost among them it sent. us

Perhaps it realized that we need-

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

truth of this saying. She has lots

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.

"Therc is joy in every corner of

Florence is just the one who
finds it. The warmth of her sun-

love and good-will.
She smiles at us in the morning,
She smiles at us all day
She cheers us by her smiling

VVith this same persistent spirit

This we iirst discovered from the

"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
GE RTRUDE L. O'DELL.
Yes, I think ninvtccn hours this
be enough. You
mustn't try to study cveryl'-hing in

are too ambitious. I am glad that
you are cheering up that poor
little freshman of whom you wrote.

blue in your Freshman room?

PHEOBE s. REESE. EAST CREEK, N- Y-
lVhcn the caste becomes dis-

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

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

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-

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

zation. Grace is our advisor in all

Happily she again restunes her
work and day after day she may
be seen coming up Main Street

naturally quiet and reserved. so
that for her the college year pass-

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.

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?

lovely coloring. D0 answer and

We would advise Anna to

Some people say that she is quiet,
but those are the ones who have
never heard her talk about her fa.-

might iniagine her world made up

AFTER THE "PROM" WAS OVER
Yes, the lovely Prom was over
Bnt remembrance lingered yet,
Perhaps the delight of dancing
'Was tinged with a slight regret.
XVe lived with thoughts turned bavkward
And we talked the evening o'erg
Our Prom had been the best one-
Nover such a one before.
XVhy we spent two days in dreaming,
Oh, what rapture! Oh, what bliss!
Alas, on Monday we stopped dreamingg
You ask what happened then, 'twas this.
Carried by the maid, in bundles
Came the blue epist-les sealedg
Placed before our doors we found them,
Learned wherein we each had failed.
Oh that rapture! whither went it?
Oh, the sorrow! it just came.
Tears and words of accusation
Hove-red 'round the faculties' name.
All our dreams of past and future,
All the dreams of youth,
Had given place to fears of ilunking,
Such a stern, emphatic truth.
Make us Proms, Oh, make ns many,
Grant us llowers and evening coals,
But let never a Prom be followed
By a. grant of those blue notes.
JUNIOR-SENIOR SLEIGH RIDE
There is shouting and singing and blowing of horns,
XVhen the Seniors and Juniors depart
And the Soplrmores and Freshmen from doorway and window
Are cheering, to give them a start.
They start on their trip all mystified, wonclering
"lVhere are we going to go?"
"Is it Bulkhead, Big Flats, Sta-te Line or Pine City?"
And even the Juniors don't know, V
But there comes a time when the bobs quickly turning,
Follow the road back to town.
The girls all jump out at the Temple Masonic
And then help the faculty down.
All feast and make merry with singing and d2l,llClllg
'Til the chaperons say they must go.
It's hard to leave early, but all are rejoicing
They went. while there yet was some snow.

SKETCH OF THE EARLY LIFE OF DR. 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
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
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
"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.
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
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.
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. '

'Up towards Silver Bay.
The lake was smooth, tl1e breezes cool,
The scenery sublime,
lslets, hills, and houses grand,
Oh, what a lovely time!
,Happy were they
AS they gladly sailed away
Thru the SIIIISCUS mystic light
Up toward Silver Bay.
Thru the Narrows past the D0nie,
The steamer plowed its way,
'Til glinuuering in the fading light,
They first saw Silver Bay.

For then, is seen, they say
Blirrored in the waters clear
The c-harnx of Silver Bay.

Glad, glad, were they
And there Content, to stay
For joy and rest and peace are
In dear old Silver Bay.

To hear the speakers rare,
Helpful talks, inspiring songs,
Glad hearts everywhere.

And tlioughtfully sailed away
XVith a inessage from Lake George
From much-loved Silver Bay.
A message of God's wondrous love,
Of His goodness, grace and 1-areg
,New thoughts, and hopes, and purposes
Had come to them all there.
They hoped to take to college
A13 least 21 little ray
Of this glorious inspiration
Gained at Silver Bay.

To make the friendships rare,
Jolly limes, and laughter chimes,

Glad, 011, be glad
And Sadly sail away,
Only don't forgot to sail
Back Lo Silver Bay."
COLLEGE DAY AT SILVER BAY.
THE ELBIIRA DELEGATION .
A DIOUNTAIN TRIP AT SILVER BAY
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,
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
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-

THOSE GREEN FILLETS
After rush day the Freshmen appeared on the scene
Their fair heads resplendent with fillets of green.
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,
The Freshmen once more donned their fillets ol' green.

THE RED CARNATION
The boys were assembled in Gordon Keitlrs den smoking and talking
over the week-end house party to be given at Mrs. Lakenxan's large coun-
try home. 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
hurrah for dinner," and Dick led the way followed by the rest of the
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,
"Come, boys, tell us. You know that we are just wild to hear about
"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

A BIOLOGY EXCURSION
Once unto Elmira College
Came a teacher tall and fair
Just to help the Dean with classes
And to teach the maidens there.
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.

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."

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
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.

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.

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.
The Prince considered the imitation again and as an acceptance
was sent across the sea another Fairy journeyed back to Fairyland.
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.

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
"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
Ullmade a heart to love it's fellow man."
And Arbutus reigned with Peace and Gladuess over Fairyland.
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."
"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
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
But to the Av'lon shades return and dwell
And hear my life discussed 'til end ol time."
