EMERSON COLLEGE THE EMERSONIAN 1 4 Emerson College as an ' Educational Force Much may be, and has been, said in regard to the location of the col- lege in historic and cultured Bost.m, and of tlie great ad ' .antages which come to a student from this environment. All this is true; but true also of any other institution in this city. Rather would we emjihasize in this article some of the special, strong and unique advantages which the Kmerson College of Oratory possesses in itself and jiresents to its students. It is not simply an elocution school or a series of studies where students are taught to “speak iiieces " and jiresent the thoughts of others. A ' hen this is said we have placed ourselves outside the ranks of the ninety and nine other schools, bearing kindred names, and stand facile pri nrps in the list of the few leading schools that make English studies, expressional . interpretative and cre- ative tk.eir major presentation. To enter the college as a regular student the same (pialilications as for any liberal art college are recpiired. The a erage student, however, is more mature than the average college student : as age with us is no grade or cri- terion. .Students from si.xteen to si.xty recite in the same classes. Ilere may be found the students just graduated from high school, the college professor on a year ' s leave of absence, sjiecial students from llarvard or Boston universities, teachers with ten or more years ' experience, and those who are looking hope- fully to such service or to other iields where personality and self-e.x])rcssion count. The college is a very cosmoiiolitan school; which is an educational ad- vantage worth recognizing. It is no uncommon thing to tind in me year students from forty different states and foreign countries. The Canadian Club usually presents a membershij) of twenty-live, and the South is “solid " with more than twice that number. Vcnces from Xew England, Oklahoma, the I’acific States, and the I’rovinces, are heard daily in onr class rooms. There is no o])p(jrtunity for narrowness or provincialism in such surroundings. THE EMERSONIAN 1 5 Of these students a large number are college graduates, or have had normal or partial college courses before coming to Emerson. The work done by them here has won recognition from the old and conservative colleges which grant their degrees, in course, to graduates who are pursuing advanced work under our instruction. Here the speech arts find a home in company with physical and vocal training. Psychology, logic, rhetoric and composition are taught as in liberal- arts colleges, with the added teaching values of normal schools; while anato- my, physiology and hygiene, physical and vocal culture surpass in many ways that taught elsewhere. No matter what a student’s previous training in English has been he finds here new fields for investigation and expression. To write original dra- matic work, and to stage it; to give adecpiate interpretation to worthy writ- ings, to take part in debate or public speaking in an earnest and dignified way, and to express one’s own, or another ' s, thoughts and feelings in a vital and artistic manner, is taught all who p rsue the regular course. Our work is always with that which is of educational value. Only the best is studied; whether it be the writings of orator, essayist, poet or dra- matist. Thus the students soon develope criteri a of taste and judgment that lead them to instructiveh- avoid the trivial or mere tricious. Spontaneity in ex- pression is sought for, so that they learn to “give” and to “lend” instead of becoming receptacles for holding the thoughts of others. Heli)fulness is the key-note of all the college work; for all study is from the teacher ' s point of view, — to be able to present it to others. Not only are the students privileged to study daily with a body of cultivated and enthusiastic teachers, but in the weekly lectures from Doctors Rolfe, Griggs, Burton, Winship, Mead, and others of no less note, they come in closest contact with masterly presentations of highest themes by scholarly and inspiring men. Ability to handle audiences and classes is characteristic of the Emer- son graduate. To name the institutions where the college has sent her sons and daughters to teach and lead, would be to call the roll of the leading col- leges, academies, high and normal schools, from Harvard to the younger THE EMERSONIAN 1 6 schools lliat front the setthio- snn on the Pacific slopes " What university can point to three score and ten graduates placed in teaching positions during the past cear? ' This is the number contributed by us to the ranks of that |)rofession which enters so intimately into the very inner life of unr nation. A great teacher once said. " I magnify my office. " d ' he office of a graduate of this college is to teach, liy precei)t and e. am])le. from the teacher ' s desk and ])reacher ' s ])nlpit, and from the platform of the lecturer or entertainer, our graduates are ever presenting themes and thoughts worthy of the highest C(Uisideration. l ' ' or nearly thirty years this work has been going on, since the time when Dr. bhnerson began to each aiul a|)ply a new psychology which is so generally acce|)ted toda - by all schools. CHICKERING HALL CHARLES WESLEY EMERSON Dpa Ohaples Wesley Emerson In the year 1638 Thomas Emerson, who was of a family knighted by Henry VHI, came from England and settled in the little Massachusetts town of Ipswich. From him descended Ralph Waldo Emerson, Wendell Phillips, I’hillips Brooks and Thomas Emerson, who was the father of Charles Wesley Emerson. The story of the life of Dr. Emerson, like the stories of the lives of other great men, might l)e simply and briefly told. He was born in J’ittsfield, Vt., on the 30th of Xovember, 1837. His early life was passed amid the rugged hills and peaceful valleys of his native state. His early education was re- ceived in the public schools, and under the special tutorage of his father, a man of liberal education, refined tastes, and high intellectual power, who in- stilled into his son’s mind a love of study, a desire for research and a power of independent thinking which marked the progress of his entire life. .Vfter completing his work in the public schools and the higher courses in English, classical and scientific lines with his father he pursued the study of theology under the guidance of the Rev. Dr. Tyler of X ' ermont. M ' hcn but nineteen years of age he preached his first sermon, and two years later was ordained by the Association of Congregational Alinisters of W indham County, Trmont, to the ministry. For twentv years he was engaged in this work, being settled respectively in Halifa.v, Brookfield and .Xorthfield, ’t., and later in Fitchburg, and then in Chelsea, Mass. The desire for broad- er culture lead Dr. Emerson to take a course in medicine, receiving his M. D from one of the medical colleges in Philadelphia, and to i)ass through the departments of I-aw and O-atory in Poston Hniversity. Ever a student, he devoted himself to e.xtensive reading and study of history, art science and literature. Once he heard it said that not twenty in a generation really (lerstood the philosophy of Plato, and for years he pored over the works of the ancient Greek, resolved to be one of the twenty. It was the writer ' s pri- vilege to listen to Dr. Emerson in the pulpit but once, when he preached from the text, “X " ow ' abideth faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” Tlic text is suggestive of the life of the man; the sermon spoke of the power for good which must have radiated from him during his ministry. Failing health compelled him to lea ' c his chosen calling and he went to England for some months of travel and rest. After his return he was aj)- pointed lecturer on Vocal Physiology and llygicne in the P oston I ' nivcrsity ' School of Oratory where he remained n nil the death of Prof. Monroe, its dean, when the dc])artment was disconi innod. , hont a year later Dr. Emerson, sni - rounded by a few friends, opened the Alonroc Conservatory of Oratory in Pem- berton Square. In a few years this -ichool outgrew its accommodations and was moved to Veslcyan ] lall on Prom field .Street. The name was changed to the lonroc College of Oratory, and in iS8o. by the urgent recjucst of many of the .Mnmni and the graduating c ' ass of that year it was changed to ihe Ifmcrson College of Oratory, in lionor of its founder. .Pgain the college out- grew its quarters and was removed to ( )dd I ' ellovvs’ Pnilding, and snbse- (inently to L’hickering Hall In 1902 failing health compelled Dr. Emerson to retire from active work, and on his Inrtliday, o cmber 30th, 1908 at the age ol he iinietly and peacefully pa- ' sed away. While the life incidents mav be brictly named, the far-reaching influence r)f the life and teachings of Dr. Emerson cannot be measured. ' J ' o say that for twenty years lie was the spiritual leader of large congregations and for twen- ty-two years more the beloved head of a great educational institution, the largest of its kind in the world, is but faintly suggestive of what he has ac- complished. The teaching of orarory today is on a different basis because of him ; thousands all over this broad land, and in foreign climes, are carrying the glad tidings of a psychological education and a broader spirit of benevo- lence, of love, and of helpfulness to hundreds of thousands whose lives are becoming different because of the great heart and noble life of Charles Wesley ' .merson.

ROLFE THE EMERSONIAN 25 Willtairi Ralte President Emeritus iiliam James Rolte was iaani in Xewhnryport, i Iass., Dec. lo, 1827. Mis boyhood was passed in Lowell, IMass. Me was graduated from Amherst College in 1849. 59 received the honory degree of i I. at Har- vard, and the same degree at Amherst in 1865. He is one of the foremost Shakespearean scholars his works having long been recargnized as one of the standard critical authorities. In 1903 he was elected President of Emer- son College of Oratory, which position he resigned from in 1908, though he still gives of the fruit of his wisdom in a course of lectures delivered during the college year. THE EMERSONIAN 27 Hari y Seymour Ross Harry Seymour Ross was born in East lladdam, Conn., in 1868. The boyhood of ] Ir. Ross was spent in the little Connecticut town where he remained until he was twenty years of age. At that time he went to Oberlin, ( )hio, where he went through the preparatory school and did three years of college work, earning all his ex- penses himself. After a rear of absence from Oberlin Mr. Ross intended to return, but turned instead to Emerson College of Oratory, where he was graduated in 1897. After his graduation he went as professor in haigiish and Elocution to W orcester Academy, and after three years his labor was recognized in his appointment as [Master of English. In 1905 }.lr. Ross was made the first assistant to Dr. D. W. Abercromhic, the principal, in whose absence he was acting principal. In 1902, while travelling in Europe, Mr. Ross met [Miss IMla [Mc- Duffee. The following year they were married and together they siient some time in England, Scotland and Wales. In IQ08 Mr. Ross became dean of Emerson College of Oratory, and is generally loved by the Emerson students. 2S THE EMERSONIAN WALTER BRADLEY TRIBE HARRIET C.

Oh, Ereshies dear, and Juniors, too, I have advice for you Xow don’t get smart and use your art In a careless, careless way. For you must know that it’s a long, long road To ])lay a leading role. And the Seniors are the only ones that get a show at all. For Ereshies you are very young and Juniors pretty small. But don’t look sad and don’t look blue. For you’ll come out when it’s time for you. Chorus I want to be loved like a leading lady In the regular Emerson ’ay, Like Walter Tripp or Kidder, too. Or Dr. A ’ard loves his chosen few, I want a lead that’s a real through thriller Like Hamlet or sweet Ophelia. I want to be loved like a leading lady In the regular Emerson A ’ay. 2 .

THE EMERSONIAN S3 The Old Quard We began this year fully exi)ccting it to be the Irest in our history, and our anticipations liave been more than realized. Our work and our play have both been ideal, and our colors have gayly waved. Once, when we were for- gotten, and an exam was omitted, they flew at half mast, hut we soon rallied, and naught since has dimmed our joy. True, the only man who was with us when we started our career, deserted us, and fled because of our inal)ility to be- come “clay in the hands of the potter " — hut hope has not left us, and onr motto is : “Still achieving, still pursuing. Learn to labor and to wait. " True to our Emerson teaching, each member of the class retains her individuality. There is the one who saunters into classes when she gets ready — the one who docs the two-step in recitation, the one who is always on time, even twelve hours ahead of time on Prom. Day. We still have the map ter-of-fact lady, the flirty one who lingers in the far corner of the corridor — • not alone. The one who prefers “The Ring and the Book " to “Ponphlia " — the wee one who gets Icjst when she goes for walks, the one who asks ingenious cpiestions regarding exams, and numerous lassies who read Sheridan — twenty miles away ; the one who longs for a music room, and the one who clings to the telegram habit. To play “leading lady” is still the ambition of two of us. The poetry of clothes still sways one, and to another eccentric men make strong appeal, while the sole ambition of one member of the class is to wield the birch. We are sorry to go, hut we carry much of Emerson with us. May we ever retain its spirit, and as we find our niches in far corners of the earth, may our influence he helpful, and onr criticism ever constructive.

In normal phvsical culture main- have recognized the theory subordina- tion as a i;-ood tiling- and have presented the e.xercises in such a way that ] oints they were not prepared on mi ht he snp])osed.

One of our most carefully prepared pictures which we presented to the seniors was " Junior ' eek.” This was quite a panorama, including a Junior Tea, where we noticed tete-a-tete was poi)ular; a stunt which was a dream; a Junior promenade which was highly successful we judge from the number who promenaded in the cosey parlors of Hotel Vendome. The latter part of the year has found many, in fact all of our class busy trying to decide how Hamlet should be treated. This estimable young man, in order to be the thoroughly analyzed, has been the cause of many broken dates, and in attempting to help him properly affirm himself, many have " scented the morning air” without " being brief.” All of our portraits, however, have been done with the stamp of convic- tion all along the line, and if “there has been some humor in them” we feel “anon” that “we’ll know that we know what we know” enough with the guidance of the faculty and the inspiration of Emerson to worthily succeed the Class of 1909 and when our Commencement comes to give as our class picture — a smile.

THE EMERSONIAN 93 The Legend of Nineteen Hundred and Eleven III a wonderful city fm the coast of the ”Tcat sea which men call the Atlantic is a structure known as Chickering Hall. It is a building of marvelous beauty and one may easily see that it is the result of careful designing and skilled workmanship. Its jiillars and steps are of marble while its lloors are heart of oak. Thru its rooms are scattered works of art with jilates liearing sundry mystic inscriptions. X’ohle men and women are seen at all times pass ' ing and repressing in its rooms and corridors. The visitor stands spell-hound, enchanted, by the melody of beautiful voices which may be heard within its walls. Even passershy may hear exijuisite tones floating out on the soft air. Each year numliers of noble youths and fair maidens wend their way to this iMecca of art and beauty, there to add new voices to the number and to derive inspiration therefrom. In the autumn of nineteen hundred and eight there came as usual a goodly number of maids and an occasional )nan to see the famous shrine and perchance try if it might do for them what it had done for others. They came from various climes and by many varied routes but all finally met at the wonder palace. Scarcely had they arrived when they were met by the Emerson spirit. Xow all who have had the exjierience described here know this sjiirit. but for the benefit of those who have not I will say that it is the thing which gives to the place its charm and greatness. It is all-pervading. It greets the wan- derer in the hearty hand-clasp and the friendly welcoming smile of all the in- mates. It cannot be described definitely or fully. To appreciate it one must journey to its home and meet it in person. This spirit lioldly took possession of the new arrivals determined that their first days should be pleasant ones. They were met on all sides by people 94 THE EMERSONIAN iiucrostc ' d in their welfare.

The Tresident they knew and loved from the first. So kind was he, so friendly and so deeiil}’ interested in the jiersonal wellare of each, that all declared him a jndnee amoii” ' men. W hat more could he desired? If one could be hajrpy anywhere she onyht to be so here, lint it was too good to last! llefore long they found that if they were to stay and enjoy these jileasnres they must be-t ' r them- selves. Exercise must be taken, assignments committed and themes written. ' I ' hev were soon recognized as a distinguished class and great was the jov of the I ' acnlty when “the llaby gave voice to its first cry.” Having come U) be acknowledged as a class it was necessaiw that they have officers, so they assembled one afternoon in the late autumn and chose from their number those who should hold in their hand the future of this illustrious class. They were carefnllv chosen and sen ' cd faithfully and well. It is to them that the class owes much of its success. llv this time they had been initiated in the Evolution of Expression and had begun to wonder whether they should ever again rest upon terra firina. lleing sensible young peojile, however, they were not afraid to “let the chips lly,” and soon began to feel that life was once more worth li ing. As the days went bv things became brighter and brighter and soon they were filled with such eiithnsiasm for the work that not one could be induced to leave. Then each was jiri ' sented with a member of the charmed circle known as Post (Iradn- ates as a reward of merit. ' flieir themes, too, took on “stele” and came to be spoken of as nn- nsnallv good. ' I ' his became a subject of common conversation, so that when the group known as Seniors wanted good material for “Stunt Songs,” it was natural that they should turn to this class for help. When the C hristmas season was come, all with one accord returned to the countries from whence they came, there to spread glad tidings of joys to be found at the wonder jtalace. Hut the impulse to return was so strong THE EMERSONIAN 95 that after two weeks it had mastered each and every one and soon all were back at work again. It presently became apparent that if their popularity wa " to coni in ue they must show what they could do by pre])aring and presenting a “stunt.” This looked like a serious undertaking, but they plunged boldly in only to find that what had at first seemed a burden was in reality a joy. It gave a greater chance than ever before for e.xcrcising the genius of this wonderlul class. If they were to have a “stunt " they must have class colors and a class flower. For the former they chose white for purity and gold to represent the quality of their work; for the latter, the daisy, representing meekness, sturdiness and perseverance. It is needless to say that the “stunt " was a decided suc- cess and exceeded anything of its kind ever before presented. Such is the legend of the Class of Xineteen Hundred and Eleven as it is recorded in the archives of Emerson College. R.r,., Ti. THE EMERSONIAN 97 SPECIAL STU DINTS Ervique Andino, Havana, Cuba.

The Students’ Association, although young in existence, is already one of the leading societies of the college. Realizing the importance of such an organization the students banded themselves together at a mass meeting held in Chickering Hall, April 8, 1908. with “the view of bettering the relations between themselves and furthering the interests of their Alma Alater.’’ A constitution was framed and ado])ted. Regular monthly meetings of the Students ' Council have been held throughout the year. Various matters of student and college interest have been considered. The association has this year assumed control of the Emerson College Magazine and Alary R. Silfer, editor-in-chief, and Xathan E. Ried. business manager and their co-workers in the splendid success of their untiring efforts are indeed to be congratulated. The Student Endowment Committee has been rather quietly working during the year. Alany pledges have been received thereby swelling the en- dowment fund. Is your pledge paid? ’Tis for a most worthy cause. Shall we not support it? Let the Students’ Association grow in its Purpose, Strength and Use- fulness. cy m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m $ m 0i §i EMERSON COLLECE MACAZING EDITOR-IN-CHIEF MAUY UEBECAA SEIEER BUSINESS MANAGER NATHAN E.

THE EMERSONIAN 107 ExpIOMlions of Class 1910 “Marvelously good work” was the verdict of President Southwick and his helpers at Emerson last year, when the 1910 class crew returned from its first voyage on the Sea of Aspiration. The fleet consisted of four vessels called Evolution I, II, III and IV was ably managed by Admiral Weaver, whose commanding personality, deep-seeing eye, far-reaching voice, brought loyal support from every member of the crew. Nothing serious happened to impede the progress of any of the vessels on their outward voyage. The first ship started out with “Animation,” sailed with “Smoothness” and “Volume” until its crew began the " Forming of Ele- ments.” This caused such a commotion that the second shij) began to " Slide”; oh yes, and the “Slide” became more and more “Vital " until through its “Volume” it suddenly sailed into a fog of wonder which temporarily hid crew 1909 and Stunt Island. This caused undue anxiety on board 1910 and they be- gan “Forming Pictures” of how 1909 might reach Stunt Island first. Of course, this aroused the third ship to a “Literary Analysis” of proceedings, and through “Vitalized Pictures,” the crew showed its “Good Taste” in resolving not to discuss “Ratio of Values” if 1909 reached Stunt Island first. Just then the fog lifted and Admiral Weaver ordered all members to land and take active part i n a convention which was to be held for the purpose of discuss- ing the “Vizualization of Man.” All were much amused at Sister Gannon, who, with ear-trumpet in hand, tried to catch the order of ])roceedings. In one speech on “Vizualizing” she thought the members said Pugualize and im- mediately began a speech against the impropriety of bugualizing men. She was corrected and the meeting was adjourned for one year. The return sail was very j)leasant, but had the crew realized the silent subconscious workings of the minds of two members, there might have been a tinge of sadness. For later it was learned that Wireless Operator Billy, on board the 1909 fleet, had sent such burning love messages to our dear Louise Ebeling that she became finally reduced to “Sparks. " However, ship number four on the homeward voyage “Eclipsed” all the others in starting with an amazing “Magnanimity of Atmosj)here” by toasting to the then unseen crew of 1911. This was “Creative” of the best sport until through “Obedience” to Admiral Weaver’s orders the fleet harbored for about ten days at Easterport. While there Mate Gannon was seized from our midst by a “Frank Cooper,” who, in his lawful way, said “possession was nine-tenths.” Sad but true in his land. Upon return to Emerson the fleet was safely anchored in harbor of Sum- mer’s Rest. However, a rocky “Examination Bar” outside the harbor caused some needless worry to members of the crew, but thanks to the splendid power lOS THE EMERSONIAN of the " I ' our ho ' olutions " which were al)lv steered l) v the mental lele])athy of the faeultv, all landed in tine s])irits and ex])ressed a desire to begin a seeond crnise under the direction of Jessie i liner a Towers. d ' hrmigh the " Towers” and forethonght of . dniiral Jessica it was de- cided that the second crnise of the Kjio Tla s shonld he inacle on the Ifthereal Sea of Asi)iration that they might the (|nicker reach the mountain of High Art, situated far heond Stunt Island. . ccordingly, during the snmmer, a beantifnl Jnnior .Airship was eqnip- jK ' d and hnilt in such a way as to readily respond to the law of grax ity down- ward and the lines of . s])iration upward and forward. I ' or cha]xerons and guides the i )io class took a mnnher of the teachers who gave mnch inspiration and help along the way. With great " Clarity” of e. ])ression they presented " ' raining of the Shrew, " ’Alacheth” and " Hamlet,” to say nothing of their " Radiation " of the " Red Letter Toems.” Tromjitly at 8:51; Sejitemher 28, 1908. the Class of 1910 followed the Towers of iMinena on hoard the beantifnl Junior airsbijn ’ith a fond fare- well look all gave a glance at the fleet of " Lvolntions” that had meant so mnch in the first cruise on the .Sea of . spiration. Tnt the Harbor of Sum- mer ' s Rest was soon left far behind for the Jnnior airshi]) was S])eeding for- ward and njiward toward flight . rt, mnch to the delight of the crew. On the journey the " Trilliancy” of i Irs. Hicks in Trose b ' orms, meant mnch in the " Development " of the minds of the crew, as was demonstrated, even in poetic interiiretation, by the " Contrast " of Shakesjieare ' s character when presented. However, the " Rhythm " of the crew was broken a little as they apjrroached . tnnt Island and the " Towerfnl (inide” ordered the shi|) to descend liy lines of gravity downward that the crew might rest one night on Stnnt Island. I ' or an hour and half after breakfast the ne.xt morning all were entertained by .Sister Tetty ' s " Dream of a Jnnior Cirl. " who had reached the foot of High , rt Monntain and was ascending to the top ste] by stej) itj) the ladder of “In- ter] ret at i ' e Onality. " ' I ' o regain Rhythm the crew ga ' e a Jnnior Tromenade the following night at " X ' endome, " forty hours away from Stnnt Island. It was the most enjoyable affair of the whole tri] and all ])ronounced it a great success. Kesnming airshi]) s] eed all went well on board nntil tbe crew found it lU ' cessary to analy .e .XIr. Tri])])’s Hamlet. Then many com])lained of seeing real ghosts in their dreams, lint Dr. .Xlden ])rononnced the illusions as slight signs of tem])orary insanity, dne to o -er work, and Tresident Sonthwick speed- ily crime to the resctte by granting a conpilete ten days’ rest at Raster Tort. Vhile there the Towerfnl leader of the crew sent otit wireless messages to learn how long it would take to reach High .Xrt Alonntain. The authorities at th e other end said the ])rogress of the crew had been s])lendid but one more crnise would be needed. The class therefore ])lanned to s])end the Snmmer at Rthereal . s])ir ' ition station " XX’ill T ,” and next year start from there that they might be sure of winning their lanrels and shee])skins and be back at Rmcrson to welcome and hel] latmch the Class of U) 2 on the .Sea of .Xs])ira- tion. Emma 15 . Goldsmith, To. THE EMERSONIAN 109 i®THE LETTER’ The lady was middle-aged but still looked girlish. Her hair was snow white, 1)ut her eyes still held the lustre of former days. Her voice, which once moved audiences to wild applause, had vanished with her strength. But, thanks to a kind Providence who had still left her this one hope, it still lived in her son Pedro. She admitted to the room Signor Du Mas of the Berlin Opera Co., who bore in his hands an opened letter, ile looked at her in blank amazement and wonder when she told him about Pedro. She looked too fragile and delicate for this world, and indeed, had it not been for Pedro, she would have been willing to fly away happy and content, to the world of soul, her natural sphere. Her voice was unusually sweet when she spoke to the Signor. “Oh Signor, I pray you, choose Pedro. I know he is but a lad, but how hard he has toiled! flow often in the midst of night when other } ' ouths at their pleasure, or in their Ireds, have I l: een awakened by Pedro’s voice. I would think for a moment it was an angel ' s voice, but it was always Pedro, Pedro in “L’Africaine, " Pedro in " II Trovatore,’’ always Pedro, singing singing, singing. And I was happy. IMy art would live in my son. Hy earthly house was gone, but my soul would live. Pedro, my sweet-voiced son, would sing in opera. The midtitudes would applaud, and wave their hands in the frenzy of enjoyment. Pedro, my boy, with my soul and my voice, Pedro would be carried on their shoulders, the sweetest singer in all the world !’’ A light step was heard on the stairs, the door opened suddenly, and a slip of a youth entered. Du Mas looked at him in wonder. This pale willow branch, this reed shaken in the wind, this half-starved youth in opera ! AMiy had the letter influenced him? AA’hat subtle influence had driven his steps to the ratty tenement, against his better judgment? AA ' ell, at least he would hear the l)oy sing. Pedro arose. The lady’s fingers were still supple, and kissed the keys of the battered piano. A rapt expression stole over the boy’s face. “Ah ! I have sighed to rest me! “Was ever such melody? Du Mas sat as in a trance. " Oh, Leonora, fare thee well. And guard and guide my aching heart, my aching heart !’’ The last strains melted away into the now dimly lighted room. Not a coal shone in the little stove. Du Alas was in tears. Controlling himself by an effort he said, “Pedro, Pedro, el Cano, you shall be as my son.” The lady, too happy for words, ne’er felt the cold, Pedro stood dream- ing of the future. Du Alas was loath to leave, so new and strange was this warm, awakened sympathy. The last shade of darkness fell, and the bell in the little mission church around the corner faintly tolled the hour of six. F. A. S., ’ll. 1 1 0 THE EMERSONIAN I. The snow that fell so soft last night. And tipped the mountain peaks with white. And filled the hollow of the brook, And drifted in each hidden nook, Seemed o ' er the world to cast a spell. Which deepened as the snow flakes fell. The fairy hoar frost filled the air. And caused all life to seem more fair. II. But when Day came and old King Sol, Let gleaming arrows glance and fall. Shot darts into the musk-rat ' s hole. And glance at sleeping gopher stole. The world abashed, as in a trance. Stood trembling at his fiery glance. Her mantle changed to swelling Hood, And grim and bear before him stood. III. The pleasure that I had last night. That filled me with such wild delight. The laugh, the dance, the flowing stein, ' I ' he flattering friend, the glow of wine. Seemed o ' er my life to cast a glow. As radiant as the gleaming snow. Seemed all my sins to cover deep. And wrai) in silent, dreamless sleep. IV. But when my conscience, as the Day, Bid Truth and Reason with me stay. Wrought Penitence within my heart. And bid the unshed tear drops start, • Iy soul, awakened, stood aghast, And trembling at the wasted past. Turned from the jiaths it once had trod. Stood bared and shamed before its God. — P ' . A.

They waited fifteen minutes, twenty, an hour, but all the cars whizzed by, and not even their most frantic “Emerson Exercises " or their wildest shouts a la " Expressive ’oice " could attract the eye of a conductor. At last a " Junior Special, " who was acting as chaperone, decided to interview a policeman. That gentleman crustily advised them to search for a white JiOSt. Hut this was only a beginning. They believe thoroughly in the doc- trine that it is better to do the wrong thing than to do nothing. So they have been wildly " plunging " about in the Sea of Ine.x])erience, ever since their arrival in " The Hub.” Hut sweet ho])e whispers that ere they are Seniors they w ' ill find “more royal margin” and that with “weight on the balls of the feet,” “good support of the waist muscles, " “aspiration upward, " and “a good smart ])oise of the head,” they will sail into the harbor f)f safety. .

I Parody on Kingsley’s “Three Eishers.”] Three Juniors went walking out into the Ecus, Out into the fens as the chapel bell rang: Of course it was strange for the Class Xineteen Ten Who were always in chajjel to help when they sang; P)Ut Juniors must rest, if Juniors must work, . .nd every one knows how little they shirk — If in Emerson College. Three Juniors went in at the “Prose Eorms " hour, . nd studied their lines as the roll was put down ; • d ' hey looked at the teacher, they thot of her power, . nd the knowledge of Clarity grew hazy and brown ; k ' or they must have Brilliancy, and they must be deej), ith Radiator pure and climax .steep — When in Emerson College. Three Juniors were thinking as the restless sands. Of the college year were sli])i)ing away. Soon there would be parting and clasping of hands. Some leave to return, while some never may. Still friends must meet and friends must part, Eor truth and love is the key to each heart — Of the students in Emerson College. ' . S. P.. ' lo. A DREAM OF E. C. O. 1 dreamed a dream as Mieza did .So many years ago ; ’Twas not the bridge of life I saw, But a vision of E. C. C). ’Twas not one well-known building here. But a path with four high gates, . nd o’er each one, in letters dim, I saw these words and dates : 1 44 THE EMERSONIAN “I ' l ' cshmcn,” in j rcen, on the first j atc 1 saw; Tlien " Junior, " in letters (|uite small ; " Senior, ' 09 , " on the third one so high ; " P. G.” on the last gate of all. I ' hrn the first there came ehihlren, some eager, some shy. Some faltered, turned haek, some (iniekly pushed by d ' o reach the next one with its wording of fate. Put a change would come o ' er them as they passed thru this gate. ' fheir laughter eontinned, hut somehow to me, A fine sort of dignit ■ now 1 could see: And they seemetl not content to stay in that place, lint still hurried onward with new added grace. d ' he third gate seemetl harder to ojicn hy far Than the others thev’d come thru ; hut still without jar. They managed to tlo it, and entered with noise, d ' hose numerous maidens, those three lonely boys. And now many of them soon faded from view. So the fourth gate was oiiened by only a few; ho, as they went thru it, looked backward and sighed: " ( )nr life here is over, " the} ' all sadly cried. " All over, " I murmured, as some ancient seer; ‘AT ' s. all o ' er,” 1 heard whisitered shar)) in my ear.
