ITH no little hesitancy and many misgivings we present to you
if f the sixth Volume of TI-IE ZODIAC. That congress of wiseacres
K ' known to the world by the vulgar name of the class of '97,
boasting such intellects as Travis, Van Horn, Lowe, Ellis and
X! , Lon Eaks, were wont to say, while many tears of affectionate regret for
bf XX their ALNIA MATER'S future corroded their brazen cheeks, that there
were so few men of ability in our class that it was highly probable no
- ZODIAC would appear during the year '98, and if one were published
it would be a lasting disgrace to the institution they had so aided and
So we are proud to publish any sort of an annual at all, and have
no apologies to offer. However, to carry out the role of competent
fl editors, we beg leave to say, that it has been our purpose, in common
sf with all productions of its kind, to make THE ZODIAC an attractive
souvenir suggesting many pleasant associations. An attempt to en-
gage the interest of the alumni has in a large measure failed. The undergraduate have been
more loyalg still if your class is not fully represented, and the seniors too prominent, it is
because the latter have responded to our appeal for aid, while you have not-.
K We trust above all that no spirit of malice may pervade the pages of THE ZODIAC, and
that no one will be offended. We love the college, the faculty and the students, and our
chief aim has been to promote the interests of all concerned.
Thanking you for the honor you have conferred upon us and the assistance you have
rendered us, we bid you a fond adieu.
ITH almost every mention of the South, this empire State springs before
the mind with all of its broad expanse of cultivated fields and wooded
hill sides, while its thriving towns and cities dot every hill and valley.
While there are few of its sister States which can rightly claim any supe-
X, - f
il E Q r ,
ml X. W WW
riority over it, Georgia, in the full developed commonwealth as we End it,
has not always stood on such an elevated plain.
In the rapid development of the South, Georgia has taken the lead and its growth has
been almost phenomenal. Hardly had the blood-stained trace of the cruel war, between the
States, been eftaced by the rains of a dozen winters, than its survivors, with the pride and
energy characteristic of the Georgia colonists, began the reconstruction of that State, which
has, step by step, risen to such a height in the scale of civilization and wealth that it stands
without a peer in all the South.
Unlike many nations and countries, our claim of excellence as a State does not confine
itself to any distinct sphere. Hardly has any direction in which the inventive minds of
Georgians might have turned, been overlooked or neglected. Peaceful government and
universal contentment have been characteristic of our people. In the legislative assemblies
speeches of patriotism and eloquence have, by no means, become a thing of the past. The
hum of industries may be heard from almost every quarter, and the smoke from our manu-
factories rises above the busy throng, and iioats away only to meet that which is vanishing
from a neighboring city. Thus, by the abundance of our home industries, our Helds of
snow-white cotton are converted into articles of consumption, thereby enriching our citizens.
In religion and politics we have been and are still ably represented. What State can
boast of greater leaders in church than Haygood, Hopkins, Harrison, and others. ' The
character of a nation or country partakes largely of the tone of its largest cities. It is with
special pride that we claim the Gate City as our Capitol as well as the leading commercial
city of the South. Here we have an illustration of the result of the determined efforts of
our ancestors. The rapid growth of this city is only an index of the spirit of improvement
which has always characterized our citizens. To an observer, this section of our beautiful
Southland, covered with lovely Hower gardens, and fields yielding their rich harvest, while
the most delicious fruits are grown to delight the palate, the sound of machinery converting
the produce of agricultural districts into what partly constitutes the wealth of the nation,
the numerous towns and capitol city which give life to the commonwealth, together with its
local adaptation, Georgia would only fail of a high degree of superiority in its lack of culture
The earliest citizens realized that a high education was essential to the proper develop-
ment of any section, and the erection of the colleges which are scattered over our State was
the beginning of the realization of that idea. Today we may boast of educational advantages
far superior to those of our ancestors, and the high degree of literary eminence to which
many Georgians have attained is a matter of congratulation, and should be a source of in-
spiration to those who are to continue the past development of our State. As education
advances and reaches a larger percentage of its citizens, Georgia promises not only to be the
peer of all the Southern States in industries and enterprises, but a centre of reinement and
culture, letting its influence extend over vast territories.

" HE COUNTY OF NEWTON is bounded on the North, East, South and West
Nlvfgl 3 by the State of Georgia. This County was named for Sergeant John
Nj XY 0 Newton, a hero ofthe Revolution, who died of the small-pox while a pris-
D V was the cause of us all being vaccinated a few months ago. I am unable

to either affirm or deny this supposition, but I have never heard of small-pox being any
closer than that. Newton County is the home of the jaybird, and the bovine genus of quad-
rupeds, which roam over her thousand blackberry patches, and on which after they have
reached the ripe old age of two score years, the Emory boy wears out his grinders, The
presence of so many jaybirds in this County has been explained on the theory that in mak-
ing their journey to Hades with their stick or grain of sand, as the case may be, they
mistake Newton for that realm of darkness. This reminds me that I hearda Senior who had
come up from the bottomless pit of Subdom, and of course knew what he was talking about,
say that he knew from his own personal knowledge that the Devil, had not been in Newton
County for six years. He said that he only comes to the top of Stone Mountain, where he
can see over in Newton, and sees everything going to his notion, so he seeks other places.
Newton County is not only noted for the production of mean whisky, but is more noted
for the unparalleled consumption of it. Dr. Candler says that Newton County whisky is
the meanest of the meanest made in Georgia, and that Decatur street juice is nectar com-
pared with it. I
The Georgia Railroad runs through Newton, but how it ever came to take such a notion
is beyond the power of man to explain. But they use it as an advertisement, calling it the
" Only great jungle in Americaf' " the rival of any in Africa," etc. So by this means they
catch Northern tourists who haven't time to take a trip abroad, and when they get them up
to Stone Mountain they try to make them think they are in Egypt, and tell them that it is
one of the Pyramids.
According to the latest census report Newton has 8,674 whites, 9,867 blacks and 7,594

Oxford possesses exceptional business advantages, which so far
seem to have escaped the public notice, for business here is conspicuous chiefly for its absence.
Exclusive of students, I may say without violence to conscientious scruples, that there
are at least 300 souls in Oxford. The population is steadily growing, however, for the very
air possesses the quality of the mythic lotus for casual sojourners, and conduces, withal, to
As the visitor gains the summit of " River's Hill," at the foot of which nestles this
quaint village, the most notable feature that meets his view is the magniiicent grove of sturdy
oaks upon the Campus, which have withstood the blasts of many winters and still shelter the
weary " surveyor " from the Summer's sun.
Oxford lays claim to the attention of the outside World by reason of the fact that it is
a center of learning and culture, Historically it is known as the one place in all creation
that is absolutely without history. The nearest approach to historical record is a stone tablet
bearing these Words: " In the beginning was Oxford formed."
As a summer resort for those Whose nervous systems require unbroken quiet, Oxford has
no equal. Many think that Goldsmith was unfortunate in not having visited it during the
summer season before writing the " Deserted Village." For those who have been here well
nigh the whole year it is a superb " Outing " place.
Among public institutions " Palmer Institute " justly takes precedence. There is carried
on the work of "teaching the young idea how to shoot." The building with " brown-stone
front " does credit to public-spirited Oxford.
Long years ago Oxford indulged the affectation of electric lights and railway, but of late
these have been discarded and the smiles of Duke Mansfield and " hay-burners " substituted.
If " order is Heaven's Brst law," then here we have a veritable paradise on earth. Under
the protection of an efficient and well equipped police force, Oxford will never again witness
such acts of lawlessness as the " Stovall Riot " of '96, and the vandalism incident to the year
'97. The offender invariably treads the siony path. No " dago " has ever yet invaded the
community with bear or monkey and escaped the vigilance of the city detective.
The station-house, better known as the " cooler," stands among the soughing pines just
back of that rare combination of architecture denominated " church l' and used as an
It is to be remarked that every thoroughfare bears the name of some distinguished
Methodist preacher. Oxford is " Methodist " or nothing. Indeed, one might say of the
architecture as Victor Hugo did of Marine Terrace, that it is " Methodism in wood and stone. "
The drainage system is a grand combination of natural facilities and mechanical
The elevation is good, climate isalubrious. The water is free from impurities, though
some prefer it distilleda,
All municipal ofiices are filled by "legislators " in the literal meaning of the term. Of
the making of laws with them there is no end. These laws, however, ,differ from the laws of
the Medes and Persiaus in that they are capable of adaptation to municipal favoritism.
The immigrant may rest assured of protection both of prosperity and of body. Witness
these extracts from the "Ordinances of the town of Oxfordzn
SEC. III. If any person shall shoot, fire or discharge a 'Krubber sling-shot" or any
other implement of torture within the limits of said town, he shall be punished as per Sec. L.
SEC. VIII. If any person shall ride a bicycle on the streets of Oxford otherwise than in
a walk, he shall be punished, etc.
SEC. XV. If any person shall dig or scrape up and carry away any sand, grit or grass

ORE than fifty years have passed since Emory College was

' I A A li
' - neither promising nor auspicious. Through trials, known to
:fi if ' 1
v A x' emerged and became what she is to-day, the foremost
institution of learning in the State of Georgia.
The year just passed has witnessed several important changes and improvements looking
forward to prosperous work in the future. The result of months of hammering, accurate
calculation, and patient but successful beseeching and begging, in a magnincent pile of marble,
the new library building. Those who admire our worthy president, will call it Candler
Hall, and those who love him will faintly lisp Bull Hall.
The usefulness of the department of chemistry and other foxy subjects have been increased
by the acquisition of valuable apparatus, imported from Germany, probably made in New
York. Under the over careful and confident management of J. F. Bonnell, who declares
that these things have no terrors for him, we expect these instruments to unearth some
elements that may act as a substitue for tooth picks and extra dry remarks.
With the close of thefall term Dr. J. S. Moore resigned the professorship of Latin.
Immediately Dr. Andrew Sledd of Virginia took charge of that department. As yet he has not
revealed any marked eccentricity of character. It is enough to say, however, that he is here,
with a soft, musical voice, such as the college widow doth delight to hear.
A few members of the faculty have made several important discoveries, important both
to themselves and to those under their instruction. Shorty announced several weeks since
that his hat was the depository of things CPD which other people do not and cannot carry-
for obvious reasons. Pussy chimed in with a remark to the effect that some of his pets
made diabolical and peculiar noises. Slops swears that he does not agree with Shorty. A
decree has gone forth from the great Bull that Slops is all rot. Note that Slops uses polite
and elegant language. Shorty is extremely vulgar. NVith a reassuring smile Stilts announces
that the price of silver depends on the price of hats. I-Ie also avers that his lectures on
" Polit " are tiresome. Goat has recently seen the impossibility of calculating the magnitude
of the Latin chair. Charlie Jarrell Ends it hard, hard, to travel the road to Jordan.
Hear the conclusion of the whole matter. This has been the greatest year in the history
of the college. Generously have Old Emory's sons met every appeal, nobly have they
responded to every want, and that spirit of devotion to the Alma Mater's cause, insures success
in the future.

.. .,.. - HE class of '98 leaves the old halls and campus of Emory, having trodden
W Wil-Af, . - .
.VX the paths that so many feet in former times have worn and is now as a
gh departing guest on the threshold, to bid a " God be with you " to all
6 .gil "1 that will henceforth appear only as tender memories of the truly happy
5 5 days. A feeling of sadness that is not without its pleasure is present
in all our hearts, and as with gratitude and reverence we cherish the
memory of one who, in our childhood's days guided our footsteps safely through difficulties,
so do We turn with filling eyes and swelling hearts to bless thee, Emory.
Our class is stronger in numbers than any in the history of the college. YVe have not
all come up together, some come from "Sub.", the majority from Fresh. and not a few
from Soph., two entered Junior, and two joined our ranks Senior. Some have dropped out,
and it has pleased God in his providence to take from us the truly noble man, Will
McConnell. After the changes of four years, we come to the close of our college course
forty-one strong. We are a composite, as usual, of various elements, not all are scholars,
not all are slothesg but our average is far better than usual. Our influence among the other
classes has been for the most part good. Under the management of our present editors, the
Phoenix has had the most successful year in its history. We are a class remarkable in that
there are four men whose partizans claim ability for each to lead the others. Our class is
the only one in college that can supply the need of an orchestra, as the occasion demands.
Our chorister is good, and we have several other vocalists of real merit. In some
departments of athletics we lead, and, taking us on the whole, we have more good athletes
than any class in college. Cuba finds many hearty sympathizers in our number, and
Lieut. Atkins says, he is ready to march, at a moment's notice to the soul stirring cry of
" Cuba libre." -
Of our deportment, sufiice it to say, it doth become a Senior grave.
To us is due the abolishment of a precedent fruitful of much bad feeling and jealousy.
We neither attempted to get the song from '97, nor did we conceal our own. The class of
'99, which by the way, is a good class, have very sensibly ignored the old custom of
"stealing the song," and now the only bad feature of Arbor day has been removed. Among
our number there are eight teachers, " to be," eight lawyers, six physicians, four preachers,
three insurance agents, one pharmacist, and eleven undecided as to life work.
So as we approach the final day of parting, we look back upon the 'course we have run,
as neither discreditable to our predecessors, nor a cause of reproach to ,our successors.

Bistorv of junior Glass
E, of the Junior Class, are the sittings of these last three years. A discour-
aging number dropped out Freshman year on account of their health and
their marks- especially the latter. Those were the balmy days when Reed,
Bryan, and McClure, and Tom Ashford were prominent among us.
The second act was one continuous scene of tragedy. We were acknowledged the
meanest, smartest, the most class-spirited, etc., etc., of any class that ever yelled
F-R-E-S-Hi I I We refused to be subordinated even to class oflicers, and the ZODIAC editors
had to assemble us some forty or more times ere we would elect even a Historian. We had
more men expelled than all the other classes combined. We were summoned eu masse be-
fore our dear President to be lectured for our misdirected vitality until we rejoiced thus to
escape a recitation. Those were the times when squirrels and "jacks" and shot found their
way into our lecture-rooms. Those were the days when the autocratic intellects of Jule
I-Ieidt and Pete Walton and Stovall and Cline shone with undimmecl lustre. Those were the
days when we wrestled on the plane of original literature, and Peed blessedtus, some with
4, some with 4.5 and some with 5, and our number fell from 69 to 46. Those days are gone
but not forgotten. Now we have reached that maturity which is the hope of yearning Fresh-
men. We wrap about us the toga of a quiet dignity and condescend to be "treated" by
Subs and Freshes in a remarkably charitable manner. L A
We sing triumphant songs of "I feel like I feel like I feel" C127 versesj, and display an
originality in counting clock strokes which Prof. Stone says seventeen years connection with
the institution had not hitherto disclosed. We enjoy ourselves in French with an cz bandofz
we would not dare exhibit before Sophs and other inferiors. Questions are asked which the
lightest weight in the class would be ashamed to ask a baby. '
No history which omits the Gym. can be complete, but it would take another history
and another historian to recount the horrors of the Black Hole in which we dress. The
wiki-1+ "A -V A 11,5 2

atmosphere hangs heavy with "a very ancient and ish-like smell" g the exported breezes are
laden with coarse sentiments, and as the call, "Platoons ready!" steals in like Gabriel's
blasts on a vile sinner, the reeking mass rolls over a few half-clothed Sophs like starnpeded
cattle. When all but the sixth and seventh platoons are ready, the work begins. The
monotony of the drill is broken by "Pardon, beg pardon!" After this a pinching process
begins by way of inspection.
In athletics we are still the recognized leaders. There has not been a single contest in
which the Juniors have not borne themselves well. J. A. is still "bucking centre." In the
relay race we came out an exciting second. In basket ball we lost the pennant by but one
throw of the ball. In base ball we hope to bear ourselves like men. In that most repre-
sentative of all contests, pentathlon, which includes ive different contests, we won. This
was Won by Messrs. Feagan, Wood, J. A. Smith, Little and Stipe. Of the ive we led in
three and tied in a fourth.
A strange thing is the hallucination under which the Sophomores are laboring. They
think they are a race more athletic than that which once tackled Mr. Peter Juppiter, Esq.
They think that what Vaughn cannot do is not worth doing, and that McAfee can throw
spiral curves. It is a Wonderful class!
And so '99, with a thrilling story behind her, getting closer and closer by the comrades
that have fallen out, is marching on to that Promised Land.
May every one of us be Seniors.
EUGENE L. JOHNSON, Historian.

liistorv of Sophomore Glass
X J' .25
am Q N VERY people of -every clime have made an unwritten history, and this, Mr.
, W XXX Editor, 1S quite as important as the records of kings and queens.
V I , , There you will tind locked the secrets of a nation's life, no
'gi H1 memories of which have escaped the prison vaults of their heartsg
U ' 4':1 'l""2giFH:M M but they linger there as sacred traditions, and are the sweetest of
or a nation's life.
X-S And so it is with the class of 1900. Many of its reminiscences
that in future years shall bring the greatest delight, will not be so
much what we entrust to these pages, but rather the things which we bury in our hearts.
The friendships that we form and cherish, the enemies that we make but never hate-all
these cannot be recorded, but they are the true history of this class.
A handsome majority of the class came up from Fresh. last year, some indeed with pants
and garters torn by the "bull-dog Enals" of Doctor Moore. So fierce and dreadful were
these spring-term examinations that a few of our best students have lost courage. Simmons
complains of broken health as a consequence of over work, while Kid Pierce conscientiously
affirms that they have rzmzed his clzczracievf.
The old and venerable gentleman is no longer with us, having resigned his chair last
" His memory lingers still,
And always will,"-
And so will Hic!-Haec!-Hoc!
The class was considerably strengthened in numbers last fall, and we are now the
largest Sophomore class that has ever attended Emory. We have the highest grading of any
class in college, and will show more men on the Blue List than any of our rivals.
We hold enviable places in every 'field of study. In the two literary societies we have
furnished for the set debates nearly three-fourths of the speakers, while in the last debate
between Few and Phi Gamma societies every speaker was a Sophomore.
In oratory we offer the names of such men as Kennedy, Henderson, Mershon, Wood and
Wynn. In the departmental work, Messrs. Irvin, Hopkins, Bald, Slappey, Gibbons and
others have distinguished themselves-we have a few, who have not done so well.
In the sporting lines we have a "Dandy Tandy," and two dudes to give away. We
have two freaks and a philosopher, also a mathematician. We have no boot-licks, but
simply a lot of accommodating young fellows, who never read anything except Oliver
NVendell Holmes while in the class room, because it pleases our teacher-" Don't you know!'l
In Athletics we have held our ground. IVe carried away the honors in the Relay Race,
which is one of the three great honors so far decided. lVe have the best. chances of any
class for the championship of the diamond. McAfee, who has the reputation of being the
best pitcher in Georgia, and well supports it, will do our "twirling," and that, after a
fashion that will puzzle the boys. I
In every Held of college life we have gained recognition, and in many places distinction.
lVe have at all meetings had a unanimity of action, mainly because our class spirit is
very strong. And now that we are about to return to our homes for the vacation, we all
go with pleasant recollections of this college year. Q

History of 'Freshman Glass
T is not my purpose to exaggerate or dwell at too great length on the fame of
able records, while the work of the class as a whole has been characterized by
g the Class of 1901. An unusually large number of its members have made envi-
if faithful and conscientious devotion to duty. Our uniform good behavior, our
continuous application to daily tasks imposed, has evoked not only the confidence and admira-
tion of the faculty, but very naturally the envy of every class in college.
For athletics we have manifested no passionate fondness, nor on them have we spent
unproportionate time or energy. Still a comparison of our men and their record, with the
achievements of our contemporaries and predecessors will not result to our discredit. Wliile
we realize that a man should be physically as well as mentally strong, we End just cause for
pride that the mine of classical lore has proven more attractive, and the appropriating of its
treasures has engaged more of our time, at the same time furnished us deeper stirrings of de-
light than either the gridiron or the diamond. W'e dare say that no class has ever evinced so
ardent a love for the Latin language, and our intense zeal and loyalty to the Emory College
Classical Club fully demonstrates how anxious we are to master the literal signification of
Words, for with the literal meaning thoroughly understood, the hidden sublimity and beauty,
weakness and strength, fustian and elegance, wit, humor, satire and bombast, even nonsense
of our own language, can be more easily seen, and highly appreciated. Our proficiency in
mathematics is unquestionable. One of our number being asked the degree of an equation,
replied, "The superlative degree, Professor." Another on being asked if a sphere one and
one-half inches in diameter weighs one and one-half pounds, what would one tive inches in
diameter weigh? Reply, "Two poundsf' It is thus we establish our reputation as true and
worthy disciples of Euclid.
The verdancy of our class is wonderful, our reputation for asking questions is without a
parallel, in fact this art has been so sedulously studied and successfully practiced, as to
skillfully pass away the hours in rescuing the hostlers, and other unwaries, from iguomini-
ous deaths at the hands of relentless professors.
The personnel of our class is a conglomerated embryo of seven who look to the min-
istry, twenty who expect to make laws and both prosecute and defend transgressors of same,
fifteen who will provide the staff of life for themselves and their neighboring undertaker at
the same time, twelve who will pose in the class-room as learned, and train bantlings in the
way they should go, forty undecided, the theater of whose career will doubtless be the
undivided world. While our class has been the largest in the history of the institution we
have lost but few men. One through the wisdom of Providence was called from loved and
loving kindred, friends and fellows, before n1anhood's morning touched noon. He had not
passed on life's highway the stone that marks the highest point, but while yet in love with
life and raptured in the world his body was summoned to pathetic dust and his soul to its
rich reward. He sided with the weak, and with a willing hand and loving heart and purest
faith he did his Master's bidding. Were every one for whom George McCook did some
loving kindness, to bless as they were blessed by him, the sum of human joys could know no
snrer boon. As our fellow he was thoughtful, loving and true, as a Christian he was con-
sciencious, consecrated and immovable, and his Whole life shone as a sun in an unclouded
sky. When the messenger came to summon him to the paradise of God, he had on the wed-
ding garment, his lamp was trimmed and burning, and he was prepared to enter gloriously
into the presence of his Lord. "He hath done what he couldf' The funeral services were
conducted by Prof. Harris, in the presence of a large concourse of friends. A more beauti-
ful eulogy and peroration on "He that keepeth himself unspotted from the things of the
world" was never heard.
Such, dear reader, is the Class of 1901, and on reading this, an effort to describe the
achievements and the scenes in which they had a part, if you draw the conclusion, which
you so naturally will, that it is a remarkable class, believe me, your decision is just, for not
one of our number has left our ranks by special request of the faculty. Our greatest pride
is in the unwavering belief that through our entire course we may prove ourselves the typical
class of our grand institution.

liistorv of Subemsbman Glass
I HE class of 1902 can scarcely be said to have a history, for nine months of
college life, especially in the regions of Subdom, do not bring forth many
incidents worthy of historic note. It is true that we have had our share of
fx college joys and fears in the way of examinations and hard-won " rises,"
but we cannot, like the grave and reverend Seniors, pour into the
attentive ears of underclassmen, long stories of hard fought battles in the realms of Harris
and Peed, or stormy scenes on both French and German fields, but perchance C" Hope
springs eternal in the human breast "-Edifmfj during the long winter evenings of 1902, we too
can recount our victories, and--no, not our defeat, for with the Seniors, defeats are forgotten
ere that day's sun has sunk to -rest, While their successes are handed down to all succeeding
Thus far the career of the class of 1902 has been one of marked success. From the time
of our sudden elevation above the ranks of ordinary mortals, we have clearly demonstrated
our ability to cope with the upper classmen in everything pertaining to athleticsg and now
that the college year is drawing to a close, we look forward to bright prospects of great

To Tl-Ili EDITOR OF Zonmc:
OR the past few weeks I have been enduring the unspeakable tortures of
the nether world. My mind has been burdened with a secret so horrible
in its nature that I can no longer bear it alone, so as an only escape from
the spectral visions which disturb my working hours and haunt me in my
dreams, I am compelled to commit myself to your confidence with the single
1 provision that no revelation of my identity be made public, for should it
become known to those whose direful intentions I am about to divulge, I would
most certainly be numbered among the unfortunates who have already received
their stamp of condemnation, but impelled by conscience to reveal the awful secret in
my unhappy breast, a failure to comply with its dictates would call upon me the self-
judgment of a fZZ7'Z'iL'Ef5 evfivlziazis.
One night in the early Spring, after a long day's unsuccessful struggle with the knotty
problems of a mid-term examination, I was seized with an unrelenting attack of home-
sickness. I applied the usual restoratives, a re-perusal of my old love letters, but to no
avail. I resorted to the melodious strains of my faithful guitar, but its sympathetic harmony
was without its customary effect, so I shook the dust of the classic village from my feet and
hied me to "The'Rock'f where in the peaceful serenity of the moonlit scenery, I might
drown my sadness in the happy past and "commune with nature and be still? I sat me
down in the shadow of a friendly pine and was soon lost in a flood of meditation. The
silence was intense. No sound disturbed the balmy stillness of the hour save the distant
roar of the historic " waterfall H and the melancholy hooting of anill-omened owl.
The faint, far-away tones of the bell of the Seney Tower had scarce made its weird
announcement of another day's approach when a sharp, shrill whistle from a neighboring
hill broke with startling acrity upon my ear, and all was again quiet. But another, and
still another followed in rapid succession, each in closer proximity to the place Where I sat
now quaking with fear, and 'ere I could collect my bewildered thoughts thirteen strange
and ghastly figures advanced with stealthy tread from every direction and assembled as if
by previous consent, to perform their mysterious rites not more than twenty steps from my
place of involuntary concealment. Fain would I have vanished into nothingnessg fain
would I erase from memory's indelible tablets those direful decrees which beat horrible
reality upon my unwilling ears. But too late, too late, the satanic work had commenced,
and I dared not, at the cost of life itself, reveal my presence. A tall, muscular figure, whose
features were hidden beneath a hideous mask, was led with pretentious ceremony by two of
his followers to a huge rock, fragment of paleozolic times, and after gesticulating esoterically
to his comrades he mounted it and addressed his heaters in tones of stentorian depth in the
following laconic words:
.f a I
, f' '
" Men of the I. O. B. K., lend me your ears and understanding. VVe come to-night on
this auspicious occasion in deference to an immemorial custom of our most excellent order
to perform a sworn duty as the preservers of order, decency and decorum, both in the town
of Oxford and the College of Emory. It is unnecessary for me to urge upon men so tried
and true the importance of the responsibility under which you rest. Do your duty, nor
allow your actions to be governed either by the gall of prejudice or the heat of passion.
Those whom impartial justice indicates presentments are now in order."
At this moment a personage of marked rotundity of stature, arrayed in the mystic garb
of his colleagues, lifted his hand as a signal of silence, and drawing from his flowing robe a
document of legal appearance suddenly threw upon it the' piercing rays of a bull's-eye
lantern and addressed his companions thus: A
" Most eminent ruler and men of I. O. B. K., as chairman of your committee for
investigation intrusted with the important functions of recommending those whose actions
during the past year mark them as fit subjects for visitation in our annual tour of correction,
permit me, by way of preface, to say that we have done our work well, and in the performance
of this unpleasant duty have tempered justice with mercy, having supremely at heart,
however, the best interests of our town and college, necessity demands that the following
report should be respectfully submitted: First of all we present the Chapel Choir whose
imposition on the auditory nerves of the entire student body demands
that a halt be called at once. Next in order are Messrs. J. D. Lewis V
and Scott Murray of the Senior Class, whose usurpation of the guard- 4'
ianship of the class morals and the employment of detective meas-
ures to further the performance of this self-imposed task have
become offensive to the class and can no longer be tolerated. NVe V
would also suggest that special attention be given to Scott, because HEPF f' g f
of his persistence in forcing his company upon the ladies of the 1 fl N
village by sitting on the female side of the church on Sundays. XVe 'V X X
Present Marshal Stone, of patrol fame, irst, because as an ofhcer of K ,N I dy I .
the law he is a joke and has made his eminent position the object ' , A
of ridiculeg second, by reason of superabundant zeal in the preser- if W A
vation of order he frequently oversteps the boundary of his province X
and attempts the enforcement of college law. Vxfhile directing at- X K If A
tention to those of our citizens who serve in an official capacity Lu - , ff

History of Phi Gamma Society
NZ!! . . . . .
K' Q HE history of the Phi Gamma Literary Society dates
from the early spring of 1837. Three score years have
ffl passed since its organization. Emory College was then
' ' in her infancy, struggling under the many difficulties
which always beset a young and meagerly endowed
lt was realized by all that a literary college without a lyceum to
direct knowledge into channels of oratory, must be seriouslyhampered
in its sphere of usefulness. It was this feeling that gave birth to
the society. '
" Sczknfzkz ez' 7'6!ZlQ'Z'0 fZb67ffLZfZlSi cusfodes " is a suggestive motto, and
one which many of the Phi Gamma's most faithful sons have followed
through life. Such men as G. W. W. Stone lit up the altars with that
Promethean Ere, which through all these years has not been wholly
Emory, the fond mother, has ever guarded over Phi C-amma's
interests, and shielded her from harm. And who will deny that her
efforts have been richly rewarded?
So great was the zeal of the student body that before the frosts of
two winters had fallen, the necessity of another society for the accom-
modation of the increasing membership was apparent. Eloquence
and pluck were the motive forces, and then, as in all time, every
difficulty crumbled before them.
The members cast lots and a part left the mother society and
formulated a new constitution for Few. The same blood flows
through the arteries of both societies, and each is proud of the kinship.
The same hre burns on their altarsg both are animated by the same
For a score of years Phi Gamma continued to flourish. But the
booming of cannon at Fort Sumpter was the signal that the post of
duty had been shifted to the Held of battle. The college was drained
of its membership, and all duties were of necessity suspended. The
old hall no longer rang with the eloquence of oratory. The hush of
death hovered over her. Yet in those gloomy days her glory was
not dimmed. VVe might truly say that she gathered around her a
halo which the years cannot elface. l-Iither the youth of Georgia had
been accustomed to resort, and here Southern manhood was now
borne on litters, dead or wounded-heroes always. Some have lived
to bless the spot. Others are now sleeping almost under the shadow
of the hall, in the Soldiers' Cemetery.
The last echo of musketry had hardly died away when the college
and societies were again thrown open, and despite the poverty that
hung over our land, Phi Gamma, by the support of many self-denying
young men, has risen to a high degree of prosperity.
The interior of the hall is beautifully decorated, yet in colors
modest and appropriate.
The pleasure of the debates is augmented by the interspersion of
piano music, thus contributing to the refinement of the sensibilities
and the development of the esthetic nature.
On the first Hoor is a reading room and a large library of well
selected volumes, which is in itself a literary treasure. Here, too, is
a varied assortment of the standard magazines, touching upon all
current topics-political, social, literary, scientiiic, ethical, etc.
The purpose of our hall is to prepare the students of Emory to
use their education to the best possible advantage, both to country
and to humanity. It is to give confidence to the timid, grace to the
awkward, fluency of speech and rapidity of thought to the crude and
torpid mind, thus fitting one for the duties that are already waiting
at the threshold of life.
From this hall many of the most brilliant speakers of the South
obtained their initial training. Une of her sons has filled with efficiency
and credit a seat in the senatorial chamber of the nation, a place in
the cabinet, and in the Supreme Court of justice. Others have hlled
responsible positions both in public and private, throughout the
country. Two have passed out from her halls to become bishops of
the M. E. Church, South, and they were doubtless indebted to Phi
Gamma for a part of that matchless genius which has rendered them
among the foremost men of the church. Who cannot join in praise
of the society which has helped to give to the world such men as Key,
Lamar, Colquitt, Bass, Stone, Hardeman, I-Iaygood and Candler, and
a host of others vvhose influence has contributed so largely to the
welfare of the South.
The past history of Phi Gamma is one of which we may justly
feel proudg yet the future is none the less promising. The condition
of the college was never better. The faculty consists of professors
possessed of unusual ability. The societies have been keeping step
with the college in every essential feature, and to-day We look forwad
with the brightest hope for an ever increasing prosperity for Phi
Gamma. Every year will add fresh laurels to her chaplet.
There are many evils prevailing throughout the land -evils
which, if unchecked, must lead to governmental ruin. Oratory is the
great 'motive power of public thought, and upon Christian orators
America must put her trust.

Bistorv of few Society
For several years after it was founded there was only one literary
society at this institution. The increasing number of students,
however. soon made it evident that the establishment of another such
society would do much for the promotion of the forensic art at Emory
College. Accordingly several members of Phi Gamma severed their
connection with that society and formed themselves into an association
which, " in deference to the illustrious name and eminent virtues of
the first president of Emory Collegef' was called the Few Society.
The first meeting was on August io, 1839, and since that time this
society has been one of the most potent features of the institution,
assisting in the mental development of the young men entrusted to
her care, and stimulating in their minds the desire for perfection in
oratory and power in debate. Only once during her existence has
the work of the society been suspended. This was during the Civil
VVar, at which time the hall no longer resounded with the voice of
youth in hot debate, but was converted into a hospital where our
wounded soldiers were cared forg thus, in a different way, continuing
her mission of usefulness.
The hall now occupied by Few Society is one of the oldest build-
ings on the campus, and it is due to the energy of some of her earliest
members. For the Hrst few years after its organization the meetings
of the society were held in the old Day Chapel. Her members,
recognizing that the usefulness of the organization could be materially
advanced by the possession of a home of her own, by their zeal and
devotion soon succeeded in the erection of the hall which still stands
as a monument of their love for old Few.
The aim of the society, as set forth in its Constitution, is "the
promotion of Virtue and Patriotism, the cultivation of the forensic
powers, and for the sake of general improvement in science and
literature." That this high aim has, to a great extent, been realized
is attested by the hundreds of sons who have gone forth from Few
to toil for distinction on life's stormy sea.
Three hours of every Monday morning are allotted to debate,
thus not only improving the forensic powers of the members, but
serving to familiarize them with the great current questions of the
day. Their training is shown by those who are chosen by the society
to represent her on the various inter-society debates, and right nobly
have Pewfs sons striven in these contests to uphold her glorious
banner and to reflect credit on this illustrious mother.
The matriculation book of Pew Society shows nearly 1,6oo names,
and of this number many have gone forth from college halls to be an
honor to Emory and Pew Pour of these are now members of the
faculty of Emory College : Prof. L. H. Harris, Prof. H. S. Bradley,
Prof. E. Dickey and Prof. C C larrell. Two, Dr. L. M. Smith and
Dr. I. S. Hopkins, have served as presidents of the college. Qthers
are distinguished statesmen, lawyers, teachers and preachers, while
many are pursuing the common duties of a less distinguished, though
not less noble, life. Each of these would tell the student to utilize
every opportunity presented by the various associations and the
advantages of the literary society, and to adopt as the motto of his
life that one displayed on Pew's banner : " PM l7z'1fmZe ei PaZ1fz'a."

Bistorv of the "Emory Qollege llalin Klub"
av- Us A
. X , s MORY College can justly claim the honor of having
Q 1 . . .
7, - the only thoroughly organized, working Latin Club
i x in the Southern States. lf one will consider the ex-
treme importance of such an organization and the
lasting good that may be derived through its influence,
l l --W he will find himself wondering Why every institution
if Gi Z' of learning does not have this invaluable aid to the
study of the classics?
lfVhen Prof. Sledd came to Emory in the beginning of the spring
term, he saw at once the splendid held for good work from a club of
this kind, and through his painstaking efforts and enthusiastic per-
sistency its organization was effected. Though it is yet young, hav-
ing been in existence only for a few months, its members can take
the beneht which they have already derived from their connection
with it, and, using that as an index to the future, predict the success
of the club.
Its object, as expressed in the preamble to the constitution, is to
"Promote the development of sound learning in the department of
Latin." Such a worthy object as this,with the noble words of Horace,
"Qui miscuit utile dulci," for a motto, should commend the club to
every lover of the immortal tongue of Cicero, Virgil, Terence and
Tacitus. The Latin language is not a dead one lt was the speech
of a period when literary culture in all of its departments, with the
possible exception of theology, was in the very zenith of its develop-
ment. Hence all subsequent tongues were moulded after it to a
greater or less degree. A language that is imbedded in the very Warp
and Woof of all the great languages of earth, is bound to be pre-
served, andia literature which contains great moral truths, becomes
so associated and so identified with the moral truths embodied in it
is recognized as a part of them, and it will be read and studied
until the end of time.
The very organization of the club bespeaks its success. The
officers are not only thoroughly competent men,but they are enthused
in their work. john P. Denton, the president, is preeminently the
man for the place. He is the best Latin scholar in college, and there
are few more popular boys than he. The other officials are, Secretary
Tindall, Treasurer Quillian and Vice-President VVacle. The com-
mittee to prepare constitution and by-laws were as follows: Trawick,
Hopkins, Wade, Wooten, Armstrong and Sledid. The club meets
every Thursday afternoon in the lecture-room of the Latin depart-
ment. The exercises are conducted by Prof. Sledcl and are varied to
suit the majority of the members. Special courses of reading are
pursued and lectures are had from time to time on the different
Roman authors and the different phases of their literature.
It was not Prof. Sledd's purpose to establish a club that would
only last throughout next year or the year after, but rather to put in
progress a movement that would leave its impress upon the graduates
of Emory for all time to come. It is a new field that we are entering
into and there are some obstacles to be met and overcome. We need
a classical library, and we need a place for the books to be stored
where we can meet and study. Dr. Candler has obviated the last
named difficulty by kindly offering us one of the rooms in the new
library. Prof. Sledd has brought before us a plan by which we can
at least procure enough money to buy books to begin with. He pro-
poses to raise by some means, fair or foul, to beg, buy, borrow or steal,
the amount of hve hundred dollars, if the eighty members of the club
will beg, buy, borrow or steal another five hundred. The members
readily agreed to his generous proposition, which clearly demonstrates
his enthusiasm in the movement and his desire for its success, and by
the Hrst of next year we hope to have even more than a thousand
dollars to invest in books Every member of the club can raise at
least ten dollars. Emory is a little college, but, as VVebster said of
Dartmouth, "There are those who love it," and all over the State are
men who will be glad to contribute to a cause that means so much for
its good. We sincerely hope that our competent and popular instruc-
tor, Prof. Sledd,will live to see the campus ornamented with a beautiful
building of marble which shall bear the name of the "Sledd Classical

study of snakes. XVe were so fortunate as to secure a nice specimen from a snake-
charmer. Now the snake is among the lowest forms of vertebrae. Johnson tells us
that "the snake is a serpent of the oviparous kind, distingushed from a viper."
As you know, there are many species of the snake family. But the snake-charmer
tells me that this one is a moccasin Cwifzkiug az' Wadej known in the scientific world
as the Trigonooeplzalzzs Piscivorus. This, next to the rattle-snake of the genus Cro-
folzzs, is the most venomous found in the Southern States. As our time is limited,
suppose we proceed with the dissection. Mr. Park, have you any chloroform? I used

cation depends upon my etforts, it leaves me but little time to note any of the criticisms made
by the various college papers. Yet there is no end to the flatteries poured upon us by the
girls, for my pocket is now full of just such letters which I have received since our last issue.
MORRISON-'A very striking peculiarity about the remarks is that frequent reference is
made to the editorials, and not a few have been copied by the leading magazines of the
JACKSON-I have noticed this custom among the very largest of our magazines, and really
it was surprising to me that the Phoenix should attract such notice.
MORRISON-VVell, tis true that the Phoenix has hitherto been dencient in most depart-
ments, and nowhere more so than in its editorials. I realized this when its publication came
under my management, and am not much surprised that this important part of our paper is
creating such universal attention, for I have, during the year, dealt with all the subjects of
national interest, in such a style, and solved them in such a manner, that anything less than
the fiattering way in which they have been spoken of, by competent critics, would bespeak
a lack of appreciation of the excellent quality of all such comments.
DIXON-We may all compliment ourselves with the extraordinary success of the paper
which the societies saw tit to commit to our individual abilities. But, considering the ex-
treme difiiculty in gathering and creaiifzg locals in such a town as this, it is the general
belief that, with its improvement in other directions, the local department has far surpassed
even the expectations of my friends, both in the excellent style in which the news of the
city and college has been written, and the display of taste which I have always exercised in
selecting jokes suitable for publication.
FICKLEN-I don't think the success of any publication depends entirely on either the
ability which is exhibited by the literary editors, or on the efforts of any particular person
on the staff, so much as it does on its financial support. You have all done credit to your
abilities, while the matter for publication has been under your supervision, yet you recognize
how useless and unsuccessful would have been all your efforts had the Phoenix not enjoyed
such an unusual Hnancial success. I do not say that the same results could not have been
attained by some one else, but my talent in this direction is recognized by the entire college,
as I have been chosen business manager of the Zodiac, and this additional honor I count as
a result of my present able management of the Phoenix.
MORRISON-The size of the magazine has been larger than usual this year, and where
other editors have so often failed to obtain sufficient matter to publish a full paper each month,
I have experienced no diiiiculty in being well supplied with manuscripts on almost every
subject, I realize the truthfulness of the commonly accepted saying, "That people are
always ready to submit articles for publications when they recognize the ability of the men
who are at the head of the magazine." But there is one other department of our Phoenix
which is not behind in its improvement, although our able representative of the exchanges
has not expressed his view.
JACKSON-Well, boys, any close observer will readily perceive that this is one of the most
important as Well as most difficult position on the staff. It requires, to be made a success,
a man of quick discernment and highly intellectual taste. He must anticipate just what will
interest the subscribers and make his selections accordingly. During the time I have had to
perform this important function, I have, without exception, delighted my readers and have
received numerous congratulations on the excellent way in which I have filled this position.
DIXON-The success of the Phoenix will be assured when the next number is sent out,
for I have the inest selection of jokes ever sent to press.
FICKLEN-Yes, last month I sold seventy-iive extra copies, and have this time informed
my publisher to send me 200 copies over the subscription. This will establish my business
ability abroad and confirm the iinancial success of the paper, which has, in former years,
sqaffered for the lack of safe business managers.
MORRISON-That reminds me, it seems that the next edition will be the star number,
for, in addition to the contributions already mentioned, I have made some strong comments
on the disaster of the Maine and the proposed war with Spain.
JACKSON-I have also been fortunate in securing several very interesting clippings and
have made some valuable suggestions to most of the magazines, which if followed, will bring
them a degree of success almost equal to our own.
MORRISON-But, as you all know, there is much work for which
We have no time, and, at my suggestion, the two societies have elected ' Wh
two editors to assist in any manner we may direct. What positions ,D
shall We give them? f
FICKLEN-The present departments can not be improved, suppose
we add to the corps of editors an athletic and literary editor? ' '
GODFREY Cvery slowlyj-Just the idea. All that you need is my
athletic notes. ,
DIXON--W'ell, Zetrouer will take charge of the literary depart- In I
MORRISON-With these additions, there is no reason why We --Q 1' f
should not edit the most magnificent college paper in America. We X-
will meet again after our next issue is presented to the public, which I - -I V MQ
feel sure will surpass any previous number.

Hast a heartache, my dear?
Are thy days void of cheer?
Thy nights fraught with dreams, sorrow laden ?
Then dry thine eye, dear,
For, in truth, thou'rt a blest little maiden.
Is this hard of belief?
Does it augment thy grief
That thy mood is made matter for banter?
Thou hast rashly construed,
Thy judgment is crude,
Be still! I'1l explain in a Canter.
NVhat I mean, then, is this-
That any young Miss
Who has felt not this grievous heart-burningg
Is a commonplace lass,
Whom you far, far surpass
In soul and in love's subtle learning.
Thy' grief fondly cherish,
For, alas! should it perish,
Lo! then wouldst thou tediously languishg
And sigh for a draught
Of the nectar once quaffed,
From the chalice of love's gentle anguish.
Don't scoff and refuse
To credit my muse,
My prescription will prove salutaryg
Be pensive - ne'er gay,
And remember alway,
That it's unrefined, quite, to be merry.

to direct the attention of a wondering and mystifled public to some peculiarities
5 of the Poet Our hopes will be confirmed if we can even shed a dim light upon
rg U' the problem of him We will not presume to assign a reason for his existence
S A as
it is one of the inscrutable mysteries of a wise foreordination and beyond the
power of mortal man to comprehend Further we desire to assure our readers
we approach our subject reverently, seated in our only plush bottomed chair,
with the quill end of an ostrich plume and champagne for ink.
YVliile the maxim, " Poets are born, not made," goes without dispute, still
the brevity of the epigram does not admit of those defining particulars concerning
the important event which alone satisfy the analytical mind of an observing public. VVe
have made a careful study of this subject and we are prepared to substantiate the following
astounding propositions: First, the poet is a phenomenon and should be treated as suchg
if he is also a man, that fact is purely incidental. Second, he differs from the rest of mortal
clay in that he is not born, when he is born. He is but the divine mould of what is to be on
the occasion of his advent upon the scene of life, these truly remarkable beings are usually
born between the ages of eighteen and twenty years. Third, no farseeing mortal would
hazzard the coaching of a poet into existence. If he is not the offspring of the gods and
the stars, he is Sui gemfris. These are all self evident propositions, and we do not insult
the intelligence of our readers by presuming to prove them. However, it was not our
intention to treat this subject by way of glittering generalities, but We will confine ourselves
more particularly to that class of poets born beneath the " green roof " trees of the college
grove and bred among the hallowed influences of our classic halls. The grosser fact that
their mortal part was sustained by the same boarding-house fare that made the brawn and
thews of our commoner men, does not concern this view of our subject and we scorn to
take it into account. By referring to carefully compiled statistics, made by a college man
through a series of years, we are able to affirm with tolerable accuracy that the germs of
poetic genius usually manifest themselves in the victim during the V
Spring Term of the Sophomore year. Only an occasional case is

recorded of premature Freshmen indulging in tad-pole rhymes. At ,Wy
this time the malady is only noticable to the closest observer. 5 ' 3537
Frequently the nrst evidence of it may be seen when the subject, 1
believing himself to be alone in the aftermath of a Junelday, paws
the redolent air with eloquent nngers and paces to and fro through .N
leaf-flecked shadows in the moonlight with hasty, restless strides, QW,
as if enduring the pangs of an overtight crouper. "His eyes in a X xl ' 'X
fine frenzy rolling," he murmurs strange incantations, as if his very x f ' H
soul griped. Apparently he is trying to yield up his ghost, but , V I
really he is composing his maiden poem. Beholding him thus, one I
can only regret nature denied him a long and sinewy tail with which , ' '
to lash his muse to further effort. - ' 'lf l
Once begun, the disintegration goes on rapidly. If you happen

upon him some day standing in the " emerald twilight" of the woods, limp and desolved in
tears, don't be alarmed. He has only sighted the slit shell of a last year's locust hanging to
the bark of a tree. If he insists upon apostrophizing the homely and odorous pumpkin-
bug, don't remind him that he is encroaching upon Mr. Thoreau's market. Permit him to
climb all the hills and mountains and towers in the vicinityg and donlt get excited when he
expands like an accordion and whispers through his set teeth: " ExcELs1oR!"
Don't be offended because he pretends to see and feel things invisible to you. Remember,
he is in the teething stage of his poetic existence. If you observe that his poems rhyme
with equal facility at both ends of the line, that they are as prodigal of feet as a centipede:
that the measure is a sort of cross between a Scotch reel and an Indian war dance, don't
tell him so. There is no contempt that reaches the green bitterness of a poetis scorn.
During his Junior year he passes from this feverish, chaotic state into more detiniteness
of outline. He consents to rest at least one toe upon the earth, while the remainder of his
anatomy strives for the stars. He creates for himself an ideal-usually awoman who occupies
his perspective, and acts as a sort of dummy upon which to practice pop-gun poetry.
Fortunately she is not a real woman, only the wooden lay-figure of a mantua maker. Also,
a certain careful negligence as to his own personal appearance is noticableg such as the
wearing of a stubble beard, which gives the countenance a bony and care-worn expression.
His clothes hang about him in a sweepy fashion, which indicates that the mortal part of him
is fast giving place to mere spirit, He leaves off the vulgar habit of swearing and learns to
rave like a madman, wears his fingers in his hair and gorgonizes a startled and timid public
with withering glances.
Thusfhe approaches the final year of his college course. Despising all but the stars,
his face settles into a habitual yearning expression, which no man will dare to explain, be-
cause no man knows what a poet would condescend to yearn
for. It is in his Seinor year he performes the functions of
-' " class poet" and reaches the meridian of his greatness.
,.1' "" Under the impressment of his own great genius, he wings
V, :JJ his flight into the firmament of celebrities, only to go out in
I disastrous darkness, like the pink glow of a roman candle.

You know, Horatio,
How I was sent by my great father's Will,
Unto the school at Oxford, thence to draw
Material for my future needs, you shall now judge
For three long years 'twas mine to ind,
Rich nourishment in thought wherewith myself,
Unto myself was in somewise revealed,
And there did drink of all unused stores
A quantity exceeding, now to this matter,
'Twas in the latter half of that last year,
When we had reached unto the worth of Seniors,
And early in the morn performed our rites
At common prayer, and next- now list ye well,
Repaired to him who in the province of the soul,
Holds it o'er all the Senior body-
One of attainments large, and so regarded
Of mighty wisdom, of utterance bold,
And skilled in talk, in liking things
Most seeming far apart is admirable,
Ne'er have I seen the like.
Now strange by all the gods, We met
The last performance of the day t' enact,
In Bradley's room, a chamber of such horrors,
Where lean anatomies and spirit forms,
Do teach a loathed, madd'ning melancholy,
Himself is but a proof how nature errs in forms,
Most fair and ruddy in his laughing eye,
You well may see he's but resolved,
No morbid sickening fool to beg
But in himself of present, of present goods,
To take them as they come.

A man in England's verdant isle,

From what the ghostly fathers bidg
Who would discover in the tailless man,
The highest forms of Indian apes -
And held that in some past anterior age,
We were 'thout bones - a pulpy mass,
Most strange to say the world has not,
As wouldst expect, disdain the thought -
You well may judge how it has grown -
People little knowing what they are,
Do hold much rant of primal man.
You may best see into my maze
When you spell out the course of that instruction,
In which we grew from day to day.
We had arrived within the soul
Unto those acts which will or may,
Must yet trnspire and leave us -
And we were in an eager mood
To hear much discourse of the results
Attendant on such unwilled deeds.
He had the one of quickest grasp begin
And finished - did himself essay
The utterest banishment from our minds
Of false conceivings of our beings.
The words he used would make youknow,
That in no softly tolerant mood
He did oppose this blasting thought-
That stnltines the mind and quickly breeds
Strange fantasies of self and the immortal powers
He vented forth for some half hour, words
That comported well with speakings of his face
And did bring in most strangely well
That likeness of the Jackass bray,
Not thus for once but often times
He did continue in this way,
And once departed from the well marked path
To give a proof disputing proof,
He said that he did bow in awe
Of such a shapeless pulpy mass
That could beget a 'corpus tantum g'
That there are apes in Indian woods
W'ho in the memories of men
Their tails uncurtailed do maintain
And seem not all ashamed,

Then did he make demand of one
To tell him straight how 'tis that none
Do of themselves these tails disburden.
This seemed to dare all champions out
And left upon my sense' s impression
A cold and calm o'erwhelming scorn
For all who should such rot profess,
As when in knowledge of the earth we made
Some way and were then dwelling on her present forms
Most ardent burned my spirit for the fray
Which as is known by those whose lives are perilled
Is dimly presaged in the present state,
Then was the first proof made and it
Was naught- not seeming hard of reputation,
But as in the succeeding days he passed
Before us all those bedded trees
And mammoth forms, cold chills began to burn
And awful dull despair crept o'er my mind.
For he who was in unbelief
Had yet no proofs before us put, whereby
We might confound this revolutionary man
And I who boasted in a rockset mind,
When he in calmly uttered words,
Did make demand to know the surety
Of our intellect, if in the presence of such proof
They still could silent be and not ascend,
Did sink bewildered in my thoughts
And all unloosed in darkest night
Could not my certainty retain,
And yet, and yet, and yet another yet, -
O Jove! 'twas not for me those entricated tails
To solve, I'll not confound my neighbors
With such bootless talk. If men
Of doubtful ancestry, have begot a fad,
'T will die a nature's death. But if a truth
No opposition will avail, and vain's
The work of man so circumstanced by time
Peace 'ain returns and all my cares assuaged
And calm I smile at their distressed state
But this I've learned by sad experience 4
When men will from contention cease,
And every one a mind harmonious holds,
The destiny of man is done, and to nothingness falls this world

One of the most interesting events recorded in the history of
Subdom was a debate on the subject: Resolved, that a man loves a
woman harder before he marries her than after.
This mighty question was argued at some length before Prof,
Johnson, a most just and impartial judge, being entirely ignorant
of both sides of the question. '
Tom Bryan led off in the affirmative in a manner that would
have done credit to his eloquent cousin, William J., and it seemed
that the decision would be his. Norton, however, became too indig-
nantly enthused to allow Tom to finish, and in a fiery, sensational
speech, defended the faithfulness and devotion of the benedicts.
Edgar then announced that the debate had been too close for
immediate decision, and that he would take the case under advise-
ment and render his decision commencement. This will be one of
the most interesting features of what promises to be Emory's most

finished in great shape.
It is needless to say that it was a drink of water
that revived Murphey's memory, but it is needful to
say perhaps that, had he not forgotten, one medal at
least, and perhaps both, would have been his. At least
that is what Beauty afterwards told him, and Mike gal-
lantly replied, " I know that, but I would rather have

AQ f Leia,
To the cemetery goes,
And her step a halo throws
Round the unforgotten dead.
Many bitter tears are shed,
Many fervent prayers are said
On the silent grave.
Broken-hearted and alone.
Cold the World as is a stone.
E'en the sweetly scented rose,
Queen of every plant that grows,
Can no lovelines discloses
When the bush is dead.
Sad her most unhappy lot-
Sadness that no tears can blot-
She Chis image lingers nearj
Bowed with sorrow and with care,
In her moments of despair,
Looks unto her God.

In a copy of last week's "Truth" A i "'A'iisZ-1- " l 54'
cbt Diglliw of Qili0l'S
No underclassrnan of Emory, and indeed no fair-minded Senior,
can behold the term "dignified Senior' l without muttering in his inmost
soul, "consistency, thou art a jewel." '
A man who acts a fool and seems committed to every undignilied
practice and boyish prank, somewhat after the manner of Lamar
Quillian fyou know, is called "Subby." Now, if the present state of
affairs' continues, such a one will be justly dubbed "a Senior", for each
succeeding year has produced a class "subbier" than its predecessor.
Notice, if you will, how the present class has degenerated with the
flight of time. Early in the fall term they used to sit xtogether under
the shade of the trees and quietly admire each other. This was inno-
cent enough, but entirely too tame to last long, and soon they fell to
telling tales, and even called in .Tim Wooten to help them-note the
descent. Memory and invention having failed, they yielded to the
demands of the "subby" spirit pervading their ranks, and began to
whistle in concert and then to sing, which was most vile.
When the class tree of '97 had been laid low the class of '98
buried it with much solemn ceremony-a most "subby" and undignified
proceeding, From this point their descent became alarmingly rapid.
While practicing their Senior song they danced Virginia reels under
the moonbeams to the music of a jcwsharp. The downward road is easy
to travel, one moves always with accelerated speed. They next formed
a company of Cuban patriots, and made hot speeches, and disturbed
the peace of this quiet little village with their silly nightly rallies.
To what further depth they may descend is one of those things hor-
rible to comtemplate. They now shoot flips and intend to go bare-
footed during commencement-unless prevented by college authority
or the health otlicer. N
Speak no more of Senior dignity-one might as well talk of mod-
esty in a Sophomore, or profound wisdom in a Freshman.

bil lu It QN 5 annually kneel at her tan-slippered feet and acknowledge our fealty to
. X our lady liege-the Commencement Girl. She is the sole possessor of
f X' 'i the knowledge of the whereabouts of that Fountain of Eternal Youth in
ff? whose vain search the preux Chevalier of old Spain spent long time and
ng! " much doubloons in the olden days. She guards her secret well and none
'A J can penetrate the intricacies thereof. Year in and year out she looks the
A same, and when at last she glides smoothly into the ranks of the matrons
her place is filled by her prototype, younger in years, mayhap, but not in appearance.
She comes in on scheduled time and the street car line with a band-box and a Saratoga.
Her ostensible purpose is to spend a week under the classic shades and drink at nrst-hand
from the fountain-head of knowledge. The true inwardness of her purpose is to get in proper
shape for the summer's campaign on mountain and sea shore. College boys are excellent
subjects to practice Hirting with and she puts them 'to good use. She moves in a mysterious
Way her toilette to perform, and when it is accomplished the festive Sophomore who has for
six months had to content himself with the Types of Fair Women in IVfzmsey's, gazes at
her in silent ecstacy.
Her wardrobe varies with her experience. The first year she brings all she owns, only
to find that the college man is girl hungry and the difference between a delicious confec-
tion from a famous milliner and a shirt-waist and black skirt is not apparent to his eyes.
The next year she brings one swell outfit for Sunday's display of eloquence and millinery,
and reserves the rest for use at the summer resorts later on.
She proceeds in an order inverse to that of the college man. Her first year is devoted
to the Seniors-those dear, blase men who have squeezed the orange of life almost dry.
She envies the orange. She is so fresh and artless, and innocent of guile, and so appreci-
ative of the vast fund of information which the Senior is ever ready to place at her disposal,
that she quite wins his heart for nigh a week. The next year her Senior friends are all gone
and the new Seniors all remember her former disdain of them and she falls to the lot of
the Juniors and becomes their devoted partisan. She congratulates them on being forever
quit of Moral and Calculus and on their budding dignity. She heard last year's class
mention those delectable studies. NVith one Commencement's experience she has learned
the rudiments of the art in which she afterwards comes to excel. She betrays that tender
and solicitous interest in class affairs, fraternity and society squabbles that completely
captivate her unsuspecting escort. She knows that his society will win the champion
debate and in a chiding way reproaches him for not running for debater. At least one
person knows that he would win the question were he only to speak.
She conducts her next campaign against the Sophomores, with great
skill and consumate generalship. Those doughty warriors lay down their
arms for want of a better place to put them. She appeals to his vanity
-his most vulnerable point. She thinks that the Sophs are by far the
best looking men in school, and she has heard that they can play ball to
beat the world. She imbibes his hatred for the .Tuniors-that
bigoted set-and outdoes him at his own game. This is her most
successful year, she is now in her prime, and from this time on
the decline is in evidence. After this year she guides the tottering
feet of the Freshmen in the paths of knowledge, and her pupils are
always apt and reflect credit on their instructor.
W'hen Commencement is over and the waltz strains have
died away in our memories, iconoclastic distance destroys
the glamour that surrounds our idol. She seems like a dream
in the first watches of the night that is nearly forgotten ere
the day appears. A withered rose, a crumpled handkerchief,
a photograph whose pictured image looks almost unfamiliar,
scribbled notes on the backs of programs and hymn books,
perchance the remembrance of a stolen kiss from tender lips
and a half dozen letters remind us that she had an existence
tangible and was not a creature of the imagination. 'When the invitation to her marriage
comes it closes the chapter and the work is done. '
An Emory student, a few weeks ago, saw Prof. Peed trying to saddle a horse. He had
reversed the saddle. " Say, Professor,,' volunteered the student, " hav'nt you got that sad-
dle on backwards?"
" Waal now, how do you know which way I am going " was the ready reply.
" Do you suppose Little will ever make his mark in the world?" N
" If he thinks about it as much as he does in school, failure will break his heart."
And there are others. ,
H DOIJIQ Protest
PROTEST that " the joke " is an anomalous product. He is a malignant
interloper. He has no legitimate placeuin the social economy. He is indulged
Q in only by persons of cheap ambitions and careless morals. En passzznf, an
"M ambition to be a joker is more sordid and less honorable than the hangmanfs
aspiration to do his work with deftness and dispatch.
I am so unfortunate as to have some friends.
They delight to inform me that I am narrow, unsocial and misanthropic, besides implying,
in the most cleverly insulting manner conceivable, that a variety of still more offensive
epithets would square beautifully with my character.
My friends, I regret to say, are fools.
They crack vile jokes at my expense, hence I hate em cordially.
Would that I could love my enemies as I hate my friends.
I am deeply thoughtful. At times I travail over " The Ethics of Jokingf'
That's what I'm up to now.
How is it that we derive pleasure from that which gives pain to a fellow creature?
" Because," interjects some Witless Wag, " because our fellow creature is prone to
make himself ridiculous. ' '
XfVell, what inthunder makes a thing ridiculous?
lVhat excuse can any circumstance render, before the bar of outraged human dignity,
for being funny?
It's absurd, unnatural, criminal-this attempt to iniect an alleged funny element into
things in general.
It tends to obliterate all distinctions between vice and virtue.
Now that's somewhat of a denunciation, but I'm ready to explain
to any old " whited wall " of a joker.
You must admit that it is not absolute proof of total depravity for
a careless pedestrian to inadvertently thrust his glistening patent
leather and a moiety of his trousers limb into the murky pestilence of
an Oxford mud puddle. '
But the importunate Wight who is so rash as to meet with such an
unavoidable calamity receives no more consideration from the vulgar
on-looking vulgus than a chicken thief or a member of the Senior
Result: Victim loses his temper, suffers material loss in damage to
his raiment, likewise is bereft of every scrap of his manly dignity-
that quiet, self-complacent dignity, more necessary to his self-respect
in public than collars, cuffs, pantaloons, etcetera.
He has committed no crime. He may even be a member of the
church or of the faculty, but, under stress of circumstances, the feelings
that he feels are not essentially different from those that he would
experience if he were caught in the act of robbing a blind beggar or
laughing at one of Reagan' s gloom-compelling puns. He becomes,
for the time, a craven, hang-dog sneak. He rarely ever regains his
pristine frankness of disposition. On the contrary, the tendency is
to sink to deeper depths. It is small Wonder, then, that our prisons
and mad-houses are so populous.
N. B.-I read the foregoing strictures to a young woman whom, in an evil hour, I had
taken to my bosom-figuratively, of course. When I had concluded she demurely remarked
after this sort: " He! he! I-Iow ridiculously funny! Are you a humorist, Mr. l? "
It was horrible. My feelings were lacerated-mangled. I felt sweet sympathy and
twin brotherliness for that fellow who remarked that he would " give boot to die." Yet, in
that trying hour my philosophic calm, which has wide repute, did not fail me.
Thus I responded: "Young woman, I am sorry for you. No doubt you will miss me
greatly, but I am compelled, in duty to myself, to bring our friendly relations to a close.
That article, which, in your colossal, and, I fear, criminal ignorance, you have pronounced
" funny," is a serious and heroic attack uponthat very vice of " funnyness," which is sap-
ping the roots of social life. " Vale, per sczrculag 011, vain pzlellrz, vale! "
. I turned from that sad place, and, in my extremity, bethought me that 'neath the stately
oaks of the campus I might find soothing solace.
Thither I bent my steps, but, before I entered, a sound I knew and loathed, smote upon
my quaking ears. CI never erase, but with or without your permission, will say it was my
knees that were quaking, not my ears.j I knew that the populus frequeus was making merry
at the cost of some victim's future usefulness. I advanced with the intent of doing a little
missionary work in the reckless rabble route, and, immediately, I wished I hadn't.
The sight that met my terror-stricken gaze was appalling in the picturesqueness of its
awfulness. Monsieur Julius M'Ga1fiz Ze Pafofessemf was coursing around the campus drive on
a superlatively vindictive bicycle, and the bloodthirsty mob was piling cheer on cheer. VVhy ?
Because fllonsieznf Ze Professemf was in imminent danger of involuntarily relinquishing
his bike .for an abrupt encounter with Mother Earth, a casualty which would inevitably have
'fresulted in the disruption of his features. As I gazed a thought was borne in upon me Ca
common occurrencel, and it was like unto what follows:
If it is so absurdly fun provoking for M. le Projessemf to be in a perilous position, if it
would be still funnier for him to be precipitated from his intractable steed, to the detriment of his
physique, then why in the name of Jevons, .Iarrell and Manning IC. Austin wouldn't it be the
veryfperfection of funniness for Ill. le Professezu' to be fatally shaken up in his affray with
the wheel? I think I've got the laughing gentry in a corner now. '
I was evacuating the hated scene when my glance fell upon Reagan. Reagan, be it
known, is king of all the race of punsters, by virtue of the fact that his puns form averitable
Sahara in cheerlessness and extent. Thinking to urge him against a continuance of his
toothsome habit, I inquired of him, in gentle zephyric tones, why he -didn't quit short off?
I-Ie turned his timid eyes away and responded, in a choking voice:
" I know it is a pun-icious practicef '
I am an acute observer, and I felt that he was making game of me, hence I rejoined:
" Reagan, you wound me deeply. You have no more sensibilities than a goat."
Quothhe, tearfully, " If I wounded you, I didn't goat-er do it."
Upon this I turned my soulful orbs upon him, and, with that
frankness for which I am so justly famed, said acidly

Especially to a Zollege Bev
In these days of ours, the iconoclast walks to and fro upon the earth, "Spreading ruin
and scattering ban." That is, laying savage hands upon all our cherished faith, and we
timidly Wonder, will any of our beliefs be spared us? One by one they lie ruthlessly crushed
afound, and the worst is that the builder-up of our new creeds in their stead has to be born
pace, the disciples of Theosophy. Little wonder that the elders among us-indeed, even
the middle-aged-are somewhat bewildered and stunned. There is such a flood of knowl-
edge let loose upon the questions of the day that it carries them off their feet.
It is hard upon themg how hard the young cannot guess-yet by and by, they, too, will
fknow, when it is their turn to feel the old foundations giving way.
Perhaps the latest commandment that science is thundering out: "Thou shalt not kiss,"
will stagger even the omniscient young. How can there be harm in a kiss? Will science
tear from us the most precious form of greeting possessed by civilized races-the meeting of
lips? And, if so, whatyhas it to suggest in lieu? Not the all insuiiicient hand- grasp?
Yes, is the inexorable answerg even the eccentricities of salutation in vogue among the
most outlandish of savages are preferable, for in them lurks less danger. Therefore abolish
kissing once and forever from our midst. No more the 1nother's soft lips drink divine
sweetness from those of her child. No more must shy love speak out its pure passion in a
kiss. No moremust the passionate farewell between those to be parted, perhaps long years,
be the clinging kiss.

Its little light Hickered once or twice, and then the feeble flame appeared no moigeg in
vain the sheltering oaks had endeavored to protect it from the scorching rays of the Southern
sun by their green boughs, and from the blighting blast of 'Winter by casting round its feet
a crisp, brown mantel of autumnal leaves. It died, and those grim undertakers, Bob and Ike,
laid it out and prepared it for burial.
Promptly at three and a half o'clock the class
of '98 gathered round its trunk to perform the last
sad rites. Tenderly it was borne to its last resting I b 4 -

Arrived at the place of burial, the Dux stepped g Q ' fi,
forward, and opening his mouth spoke as follows: d X
"In the absence of the class of '97, we are come Z
to consign to its grave this blighted hope, this v e?y '
faded flower, this broken pitcher, this unfinished
song. The subject of my thoughts are found in
these lines,' 'We come to bury this tree, not to
praise it.' And why not, for is it not the deadest tree unburied? Nay, marvel not, rny
fellows, that 'tis so, for even these sturdy oaks, which for an age have laughed to scorn
the fury of the storm, were nearly blighted by the Invocation of their poet Pace hurled at
this helpless baby of the woods. Now, as its fallen form lies at our feet, no kinsman,
friend nor rnourner near to whisper broken words of loving, parting grief, what better can
we' do than bury it?
" What words of praise have we for this unfortunate? With no distinguished ancestry,
its associations vile, and hope of generations yet to come redeeming a disgraceful past,
completely gone. Yes, let us bury it!"
Soon its wasted form was lost in a sombre heap of mouldering leaves, which seem to
chatter like grim, gibbering ghosts of brown above the gaunt, unshrouded dead. Then
Whitehead sounded taps, and with solemn, stately tread, and ever present dignity, the
Seniors turned again into the crowded paths of life. 4

Be still, and know that I am God."
Unnumbered worlds as drops of dew,
Upon a myriad violets,
Nothing so small the great earth through,
The Maker ever it forgets.
Like dew, distilled from out the air,
Upon the rose, the leaf, the sod,
Repeat the words of David's prayer:
Be still, and know that I am God."
Be still, ye sons of men, be still,
Lift up your eyes by day or night
And see how God has worked His will,
Has given the universe His light.
He sits enthroned upon the stars,
He holds the suns within His hands,
Directs the elements of wars
And binds Orion's powerful bands.
Now these all say, and 'tis His will:
" Know that He's God, be still, be still,"
Be still, and know that I am Godf'
The circling suns once swept the sky
Without the voice or eye of mang
Yet ever from their thrones on high
Since they were made and time began
The've sung the praises of the One .
Who made them with His awful nod,
The song the " Morning Stars ' ' begun.,
Be still, and know that I am God."'
Be still, ye sons of earth, be still,
Hear ye Niagara' s ponderous roar,
Or the small murmur of the rill
That glides lapidic ledges o'er ?
Their anthems like the sun1mer's breeze,
The swelling noise of storm-tossed sea,
Or thunders sounding through the trees,
Say this, oh God, say this for Thee:
We're made and governed by His will,
Know that He's God, be still, be still."

She gave me a rose, on a winter's night,
She gave me a rose and I knew the light
That lit the face of my fair little queen,
Betrayed the heart that she thought she would screen,
As she pinned it on my breast.
She gave me a rose, and I have it yet,
Though its leaves are pressed I can ne'er forget
The smile and the trust in her love-lit face,
As she pinned it there in its resting place,
And sighing, turned mute away.
She gave me a rose, and I laid it by
In a sacred spot, where I often hie
To commune alone with my better self,
When the day is done, and no roaming elf

Deep within her heart, and I, trusting, knew QS,
That she cared for me alone! -1 gl ' V.
She gave me a rose, and I thought a tear
Did moisten her cheek as she lingered near, ig.
VVith her face upturned to the silent sky, V
And her heart-I could read in her deep blue eye-
She gave me a rose, and I paused to press ,
On her crimsoned cheek but a fond caress,
For she looked so sweet in the evenir1g's glow
W'ith her upturned face, and her eyes aglow
W'ith the flame that lit her heart.
Should we meet again, I have wondered, dear,
As we met of yore--not a soul was near-
Would you give me another dainty rose,
And you think 'twould the same sweet love expose
It did in the long ago?

For some time Shorty had been thundering forth against those who spend their hours in
the vain pursuit of the merest trifles.
'A Why," he exclaimed, " I can't stop to gather every blue bird into my hat that crosses
my path, there are too many other things in that hat."
The prolonged and wicked laugh that followed told all too plainly what the boys pre-
sumed were in that hat. Shorty saw the point but couldn't meet the emergency. In an
absent-minded way he called on Sorreltop Thomson, who talked aimlessly for some time
about emotions, desires, moral responsibility and choice. All the while Shorty was rub-
bing his head and seemed lost in thought. Suddenly a smile overspread his face like the
morning sun through an April cloud, and breaking in on Sorrel's philosophical peregrina-
tions, asked, 4' NVhat were you boys laughing about awhile ago? I'll say to you what Burns
said to the lady who told him she cared no more for him than the skip of a louse:
"I ezfcuse the dear lady
For what she has said,
For women will talk of
What runs in their head."
It was a big shot, but it had hung 'fire inexcusably.

And welll take along our Jew.
We've traveled far with Shorty
In Mental's drear domain,
To cram it in our heads We've tried
Till now We're hardly sane.
And now ye Juniors, Sophs and Fresh,
VVith this we say adieu,
Be kind to all dumb animals
As they have been to you.
You're young and green We'll not deny,
But if you'll toil and strive
With all your might plus Jacks and helps
Perhaps you'll make your five.

As Gehu rode the nery steed,
So rode the "bike" did Mansfield Peedg
His coat-tail bid a sweet adieu
As round the campus track he flew.
He tried to frown at all the stones,
That seemed to want to break his bonesg
XVith head erect and flowing beard-
He in contempt around them steered.
XVhile under him his feet did fly,
His mind did muse o'er things on highg
Till called to earth by warning bells
Of Crowley, Candler and Bonnell.
Run, Peed! run! came the college yell,
But chaos on his senses fell.
The trees around him joined the dance,
The stones before his Visage pranced.
He clove the air with ngures rare,
And smote the earth with head and hairg
But up he got with darkened brow
From off the ground and said Hwczal now."

WE hope that Prof. McGath will not feel slighted because THE ZODIAC has not devoted
its usual amount of space to him. It is not due to any falling off in his popular appreciation
or ridiculous performances, but he has long since ceased to be a joke. It is a case of history
repeating itself until it has become monotonous. We learn with pleasure that his French
Verb Simpliied is being adopted in all the leading colleges of the country and bids fair to
become a source of unbounded wealth to our distinguished instructor of the polite language
called by some, stuff. We congratulate the genial professor on at last discovering his proper
calling in the educational work, and hope that in the near future he may be able to devote
his entire time to this noble calling.

To REV. MORGAN CALLAWAY, D. D.
Once, walking alone, I met a May morning clothed in the sunshine and crowned with
Howers. The breath of her nostrils was like unto the smell of ripened apples, and the folds
of her flowing robes reminded one of the wavy clouds which ever rest upon the mountain
tops. The orange blossoms of her native Floridas 'could not be whiter than she, and the
violets, which adorned and gave coloring to her e es co ld t h b
mortals to look upon.
And I said: "I am

thankful to the presiding dieties of the human race that they have
givenrto me this pleasing moment-that they have opened the gates of the morning and per-A
mitted me to behold, clad in all her celestial beauty, one of the dwellers of that fair place."
I put out my hand to touch her, and lo! a woman in noontide splendor. Brilliant was
her sunshine robe, and beautiful beyond, compare were her garlands of Howers. And I said:
" I am thankful to the presiding dieties of human lif th t th h
on the unspeakable splendor of the noontidef'
While yet I spoke, behold, it was evening. In the purpling western sky slowly sank
the sun to his ocean bed, and lo! an old

woman, the grey beams of twilight mingling with
the few rays of the morning which still remained upon her splendid head. VVithered and
dying were the garlands of fiowers, and faded were the violets of her eyes-but a far-away
look was on her countenance, and she seemed to be looking beyond R W H H
the twilight into the land of sempiternal sunshine of endless morn- , W li ng

You're like the sunshine, little one,
Which breaks the darkness of the nightg
Which is to earth its living light,
Which paints the clouds with colors bright,
The warm reflections of the sun.
Your smile is like the break of day,
When stars their faces hide away,
And merry elves in skyland play,
From twilight world, o'er earth and sea,
You' re like the sunshine unto me.
You' re like the morning little girl-
When golden glories glint around,
And diamonds sparkle on the ground,
And leaves and grasses all abound,
NVith jewels brighter than the pearl,
W'hen songsters hush their trilling notes,
And still their tuneful little throats
To hear the elnn song that floats
From Orient land out o'er the lea -
You're like the morning unto me.

While this school is a department of the Southern Medical College, it is within
itself a complete dental school. The new building is designed especially for teach-
ing dentistry: being located on an elevated. site and in no wise obstructed, is most
admirably lighted. and inhthis particular is unsurpassed by any institution in the

laboratory is fully equipped with electricity and all the latest improvements for
teaching and practice in prosthetic dentistry.

, and given daily during the entire session. By this arrangement any student in the
f-Y Dental Department is thus afforded an opportunity of seeing the various character
of surgical operations performed in and about the mouth. Students consequently
are thereby enabled to become medically educated at the same time they are acquir-
ing a dental education.
Dentistry of to day has ceased to be merely a mechanical trade. but its success gs
depends largely upon the therapeutical action of medical agents as applied to the
gg various diseased conditions. Many of the most progressive of our profession,
realizing this, are acquiring the degree of M.D. with that of D.D.S-
Students in the Dental Department desiring to obtain the degree of M.D. have
the opportunity of matriculating in the Medical Department the senior year, and are
thereby enabled to graduate in both departments in four years.
This school is a member of the National Association of Dental Faculties, and ,c
conforms to its requirements. A
Good board can be obtained for from three to five dollars per week.
