Che Mid-winter Clase of 1915
PON January 14th, 1916, one of the smallest classes.
' ' " physically speaking, in the history of the Eureka High
School passed thru its portals forever. But with those
Y gif sixteen graduates was carried no small portion of that
inexplicable element known as energy. The Mid-VV inter
Class of 1915-the first of its kind within the annals of
our school-was extraordinarily essential in almost, if not every phase
of school life.
We are aware that these identical words have commemorated the
graduation of classes from times immemorial but, nevertheless, we
truly feel that never in any instance have they been more truthfully
and fittingly applied than in the present. We earnestly believe that
never before has a class of this size taken with them at their parting
so much of what the E. H. S. is. In every branch of athletics, in the
literary, dramatic and debating sphere, and even in the very hum and
drum of school affairs, an aching void is felt-a void which by its
very emptiness pleads for such another class as this.
It was not our purpose here to quote class history, for the his-
tory of this Class is written upon the very hearts of its comrades, nei-
ther was it our purpose to offer condolence to those comrades, but
we wish simply to express our acknowledgment of the debt we owe
this Class-an expression to serve as a vote of thanks. In this spirit
alone we offer these humble words of commendation.
But, useless to say, though we commend we need not attempt
to congratulate the Mid-Winter Class of 1916-for as they leave us
and seek the world there sings within their hearts a hymn of calm
melody impossible of imitation-a melody which vibrates in concord
with the soft thrilling voice of their Alma Mater, "Well done, good
and faithful servantf'

Che Senior Clase of Tune, 1916
' 111.21 HE present senior class of june, 1916, entered the Eureka
'QI High School with an unusually large enrollment. Dur-
ing the Freshman year a literary society, the Ciceronian,
...4 similar to societies in other classes, was formed, and the
1 ll members of the class of 1916, ably demonstrated their
histrionic and musical ability. This class together with
the Mid-'Winter Seniors, had the honor of being tendered the first
During the Sophomore year, the high standard of work, insti-
tuted while Freshmen, was continued. The junior year proved to
be equally successful. The class found themselves with more social
duties than before, but they discharged them most admirably, at the
same time keeping up a uniform standard of school work.
The 1916 class enterefl their Senior year under the handicap
of following in the footsteps of a class unusually prominent in ath-
letics, dramatics and other school activities. The present Seniors
proved that they could rise to the occasion, however, VVhile they can-
not boast of many single athletic stars, they have done their part in
the furthering of athletics as is seen by the fact that together with
the Senior B Class, they captured the Interclass baseball champion-
ship for 1916. Several of the Seniors also had parts in the High
As a whole the members of the class of june, 1916, may well
be proud of the record they leave behind them. They can conscien-
tiously say they have always given the best they had in whatever they
did. It is with much regret that they leave the E. H. S. which they
have grown to love so deeply.

Isles of Isolation
E I OR ages men have sung of the cities. From. Homer to
T if by even these latter days we have heard this single chord
harped in its million variant keys. As a result the City
has become significant to the modern mind for all that
-'i' '-ii15 the words Fortune, Adventure and Chance stand for.
To the coddled city folk Fortune is the prize to be
fought for and Won on the "Street" and Adventure and Chance lure
enticingly just around the corner. The Average Reader, he who wears
rubbers and says, "Good morning" once a day to the man who lives
in the upper flat, possesses a commonplace and comfort-loving soul
which looks upon the City Hall as la perilous frontier and the day he
ran after the trolley car as a thrill to be cherished. He accepts the
rhythmic roll of the seething streets and the busy hurry of the City
in quite a matter-of-fact manner. Every morning he clamps his
newspaper between his cup of coffee and the sugar bowl and skill-
fully scans its headlines for murders and the more daring robberies.
Every night he kisses his patient wife and wanders off for a sociable
few minutes at the neighboring cigar stand, to come back with a com-
prehensive grasp of municipal politics upon his tongue and a five-
cent cigar between his lips. He loves the City and the City loves him.
Thus far, reader, we may agree. But when the poet of the
City insists that the City dominates the Land-when in the arrogance
of this City-born pride he asserts that the last frontier has been re-
placed by the moving picture theater and the hot-water flat-ah, that
is quite another matter.
There is a long, long Road which stretches like a white ribbon
from Somewhere to Nowhere. And from this Road branch off other
Roads, which point like crooked fingers where man has ventured and
been lost. Some of the Branch Roads are muddy and seamed and
scarred with ruts, but most are gravelled and smooth and enclosed
by level and fruitful fields from which peeps the little white farm-
house with the curving, graceful sprite of smoke climbing towards the
sun. A powerful and impressive silence lies over the stirring and
rolling grain. The breeze bears the fragrance of blessed simplicity.

And from the skies like manna descends upon the land a deep and
For our N ature-lovers this spells Paradise and happiness. But
for many an erstwhile City-dweller, who invades one of these grav-
elled Branch Roads upon the joyous occasion of his two weeks vaca-
tion on full pay, there lies no permanent charm.
He passes, perhaps, a day or two sitting beneath a cherry tree
reading the summer season's lightest 'itake-with-you-on-your-vaca-
tion" love story, before the horrible suspicion that somehow things are
not as they should be, startles him into action. He becomes pos-
sessed of the idea that he has lost something. He takes to wandering
aimlessly about. Louder and louder the City sounds its Call and more
and more restless he grows. At last when he can resist it no longer
he throws his shaving-soap and tooth-brush into his suit-case, and re-
turns down the Branch Road, with the daisies and buttercups grow-
ing along its side, to the dusty Road which leads to the land of Cities
But sometimes, for reasons either practical or imaginary, the
Great City vomits up a man who is not a summer boarder and casts
him forth. And Fate, always loving a tragedy, leads him up the long,
long Road and giving him a gentle push into one of the Branch Roads,
leaves him to the Battle of the Spirits.
For a time the Country may lull him into a fancied happiness.
But the Call will come, probably when he expects it least, and will
awaken within him all the old recollections. And like a true son of
the City he will dream of the pavement under foot, where the streets
flow eternally with humanity-a black and surging river overtopped
by immense cliffs. And he will see the Lights-the City's Lights.
Awakening, as the glorious sun optimistically gilds the fields anew, the
buzz of the lost City of his Dreams, is overwhelmed in the hymn of
the Country of his Life-silence. And for him a colossal loneliness
stalks the land.
Then within his bosom the Battle begins-The Struggle of the
Spirit of the City, which is Companionship, with the Spirit of the
Country, which is Solitude.
From that moment, it is a fight to the finish. One or the
other must win. Which is the stronger, which will eventually emerge
victorious, Fate alone can know. And this dreary preamble is only
to introduce to you a tale of the two great Spirits.

Of man and the Land sing I.
James W. Meredith was the man. The City had disownefl
him or he had disowned the City, and one or the other of the two
had cast, the other off. However that was, Fate grasped james in
her soft irresistible hand and led him a weary chase along the Road
from Somewhere to his particular Branch Road and went about her
business. This was in the last days of june. And with a tired look
about his eyes and mouth, and his light-tailored coat, showing as it
did the dust of the many miles .of hopeless foot-dragging, swung over
his arm, he turned in at the little Road which held his destiny.
As he turned he looked neither to the right, where the last
gleam from the setting sun revealed the grain nodding before the ca-
ress of the fresh evening breeze, nor to the left, where standing in
stately majesty three tall elms rustled a murmur of welcome, but
walked doggedly on, his head and eyes bent towards the solid smooth
level of the gravelled road. Sharply outlined in the climax of a sum-
mer day, the whole pastoral world of meadows and orchards stood
up against the sun. But unheeding, he never lifted his eyes. For
the first time in his entire life james VV. Meredith was tired and
hungry. g f , ,,
The road rose gently and at the top of the slope curved in a
sharp angle and disclosed at a dash the treasure and mystery of the
Branch Road. Meredith had' looked up with almost a trace of expec-
tation at the bend in the road, and as he looked, he halted.
Set in slightly from the roadside and guarded by a gigantic elm
stood a trim white farm house, its one and a half ,stories accentuated
by a bit of flower bed and the ankle high sward to the front. Far--
ther back stoodthe red snug'-barn, its wide open doors disclosing re-
cesses which hinted of crisp hay. Meredith recalledgiwith a touch of
pleasure that somewhere he had read of men sleeping in hay. And
then he observed that back and farther back of the house and barn
rolled the grain in wondrous billows, and, strange to relate, for a
moment Meredith smiled.
Then thoughtfully, he made his way from the road towards
the wagon-gate to the left of the house. As he raised his hand to
lift the circlet of chain which was secured to the gate post and swung
loosely over an upright in the gate, he paused. From a stooping pos-
ture by the side of the tiny flower bed, a girl had arisen and was fac-
ing him. For the second time that day Meredith smiled, though the
' TJGEil1uTlif9C -
weary lines never vanished from about his calm gray eyes. It had
been the. comment of more than one person that Meredith looked re-
ally handsome when he smiled. I-Ie did not show the teeth as is cus-
tomary with some men, or contort the face as others, Meredith simply
smile'd.j A '
"Good evening," he said. "
Slowly and somewhat puzzled the girl smiled too. The wavy
dark hair framed a face not beautiful, yet youthfully sweet and del-
icately sunburnt. I-Ier movements were quick and graceful.
"Good evening," she murmured and hesitated prettily. I-Ier
voice was-Ifclear, though low. . ' - I
,"I ,am out of employment," Meredith explained slowly, pausing
between each word as if uncertain of what he wished to say, "I have
been 'cramping all day. I am searching for work, supper and bed."
' ' "'fI+I+l' The girl turned suddenly towards the barn. A stal-
wart, bfearded man was just closing the great doors for the night.
"I','ll askiDaddy,"-she told him and tripped lightly down the wheel-
worn wagon road. ' -
I Meredith, opening the gate and carefully closing it behind him,
followed slowly the path taken by the girl.
As he approached the barn the stalwart bearded man stepped
forward. I Meredith noted that his hair and beard were slightly gray
in places 'and that his rough rugged faqe was softened by kindly fur-
rowsrwhich spoke of suffering and patience. '
I "You Want work P" he asked.
' The girl, who had been standing near, retreated discreetly in
the direction of the house. .
"Yes," replied Meredith shortly, and his mouth relaxed into its
tired lines, " '
N , ' 'Tm just taking in the hay, now," and the older man nodded
back at the fields, "and I need another man, but," he concluded
doubtfully, "you don't look much like a farm hand-your face is
too white and your clothes are too good. Besides, we haven't much
room in the house?
e Meredith jerked his head up resolutely.
. "I never worked on a farm before," he said, "and I may not
look like a worker, but I-come from working stock. If there isn't
room in the house-you've hay in the barn-I am willing to sleep- in
the hay. All I ask is my board until I've learned to be a genuine
farmerf' Meredith smiled for the third time that day. "I can't Cl0
much more than that."
The brown and bearded farmer smiled approvingly. "No, I
reckon you can't," he acknowledged, "but I won't hold you to any
such proposition as that. I've got work for a willing hand. What'll
I call you by?"
All right, Jim, you can sleep in the barn tonight and to-mor-
row we'll have Mother Perry fix you up in the house. Come in now
and get some supperf'
Perry led the way to the house, chatting over his shoulder of
the summer harvest. It was already dusk and the windows of the
little farm house glowed warmly. In the kitchen Meredith was in-
troduced to Mrs. Perry, a robust, motherly woman, with tender blue
eyes. Evidently Mary, the Girl of the Garden-bed, who smiled at
him as he entered the room, had accomplished the preliminaiies.
Meredith ate heartily of the simple supper and by the time he
stepped out of the house into the night to find his way to his bed in
the barn, a thousand stars had pricked the dark shroud above and
he was happy. .
The City had not yet sounded the Call.
Meredith was awakened the next morning by the lowing of
cattle, so far away that it almost seemed to blend with the dainty
rippling song of the thrushes. For a bare second he felt absurdly lost.
Then there came rushing back into his brain-reality. At first he was
almost disappointed and would have welcomed the breathless whirr
of the waking City. Then of a sudden the intoxication of the sum-
mer morning went to his head and again he was glad.
After a merry breakfast at the house, Meredith followed Ferry
to the barn. The whole world was luxuriating in a warm bath of sun-
Perry wagged his head skeptically.
"I reckon we're going to have a mighty hot day," he speculated.
"But some of that hay has simply got to be cut."
Meredith found that the hay must be 'cut with smooth-handled
and awkward scythes. A reaper was "too expensive," Perry in-
formed him. The older man sharpened the scythes and they went
at it-Meredith clumsily, swinging his keen blade murderously-Pen
ry's rhythmic gentle stroke attended by the sharp swish of green, sap-
py grain. And out of the corner, of his eye, Meredith watched Perry
and imitated poorly. All that morning Meredith sweated the agonized
sweat of a novice and martyr under the boiling sun and dazzling blue
sky. And he felt broken, and sore when at last the big bell at the
house rang noon and dinner. His back ached from the unusual strain
and his arms were stiff and leaden. After a cool refreshing wash his
face shone red with sunburn and he felt for an instant relieved. Dur-
ing the plain and fragrant meal, Mary chatted light-heartedly, and af-
ter, for a delicious half hour Meredith and Perry lay lazily stretched
upon the cool soft green beneath the sentinel elm.
While the sun was high in the heavens they began work again,
and labored on until even with the horizon, its burning face set fire
to the filmy clouds, which clustered in the West.
So the day ended and still the City had sounded her Call but
And Meredith pained in every joint and slept well in the little
room, just above the kitchen which Mother Perry had dusted and
set to, and dreamed not. A
Other days came and went in a similar manner, but as they
passed Meredith's muscles hardened and he suffered less from the
terrible fatigue which had been his worst foe. His face browned
slightly. He looked more and more of the Country. But on him still
was the City's stamp.
He and Mary were becoming the closest of friends. In the
middle of every morning and afternoon she insisted upon bringing a
jug of cool rich buttermilk to the spot in the fields where Meredith
and Perry were laboring, and would further insist that both cease
their Work to indulge in a five minute respite. A month passed and
the haying was finished. Yet the farm required the unwearying ef-
forts of the two, men. Meredith was ,fast learning.
He retired to hisfroom early no longer. Up the road less than
half a mile lay a prosperous little cottage known as the Smith place
and every night Meredith and Mary strolled along the road until ,El
:limplight in one of the windows of this landmark warned them to turn
back. , . .
The heavens flowered with stars, upon those glorious nights,
and the moon peeped just over the trees and Mary's joyous laughter
and soft ,youthful voice rang as nicely-cut and clear as the chime of
a silver bell. And Meredith smiled his quiet smile frequently and
listened, saying merely enough to make the conversation continuous.
And finally when their forms would return thru the night dusk,
Mr. and Mrs. Perry, sitting in their rockers on the stoop with the
little square of light from the window just behind them throwing over
the picture a beautiful serenity, would smile quietly at each other and
Perry would say:
"He's a mighty fine fellow, Mother."
And still the City was silent.
Then one night, for Meredith the heavens took on a rare-
a mysterious beauty. just why this particular night was so extraor-
dinarily beautiful is, in itself, mysterious. However, Mary, probably
stirred by a similar impulse, turned silently down the road this night.
And Meredith, unusually quiet, followed her. They walked slowly
around the bend, from whose angle Meredith' had first sighted the
Treasure of the Branch Road, and down the slope' on its farther side.
The moon was large and swam over a star-scattered infinity.
F rom the roadside grass, dark and uncertain, innumerable little things
chirruped and sung. A warm breeze was blowing, and occasionally
the leaves of a tree on the left side of the road rustled pleasantly.
Once Mary began a light sentence but paused involuntarily in
its midst. The warm still was overpowering. They walked on in si-
Of a sudden Meredith spoke and his voice, for a wonder, was
low and husky:
"Mary," he said.
They halted almost as one.
"Yes ?" she murmured.
A strange sound broke the spell of the wonderful night.
Meredith started. For an instant he was senselessly angry at
the sound which had shattered his rose-tinted dream. He looked up.
And as he did so his mind flooded with recollections which memory
conjured up. For the first time that night he saw. '
As the foreign, though somehow familiar, pulsating sounds
approached, he saw that they stood at the mouth of the Branch Road
-he saw the three elms immovably foreboding by the side of the
road-he saw- Q A
From out of the darkness surrounding the long, long Road,
from which point off the many Branch Roads,'twO disks of glaring
light almost blinded him, and a dark long low body swept swiftly past,
going from Nowhere to Somewhere, and was gone-swallowed in the
maw of the night-
"An automobile," Meredith breathed.
The City had sounded its Blast! I
With one consent they turned and awesomely began the walk
Meredith felt stunned by the suddenness of it. But he knew
that that fleet apparition had awakened within him all of the dor-
mant longing and homesickness of months. The smooth regular purr
of the automobile grew and grew in volume-until within him ht
hear'd the roar and rumble of the Great City. And those two lights
which had broken from the darkness in a second to disappear in an-
other, he magnified into the thousands and thousands of sparkling
lights which turn the Great City's night into day.
And the Voice and the Eyes of his Great Mother beckoned him
Beckoned him away from the Country, the lonely fields and
the distant horizon-beckoned him back to the human City. And all
at once Meredith lost his love for the Country and longed to hear
the click of his heels on the hard cold pavements, and the thousand
and one sounds which blended compose the Great City's Symphony.
I-Ie longed to go to the Lights, his City's Lights and be swept away
by the crowds.
And in the vast longing of his heart, he spoke suddenly and
rapidly. I-Ie told of his love for the brilliant society girl-of his dis-
appointment-he told how in a few hours the Exchange had devoured
his fortune and then how bitterly he had left the City which had
reared him and bred him and stamped him with its mark and sought
out the 'long, long Road to Nowhere.
' "And now I want it!" he cried, as if a storm of terrible emo-
tion had broken bounds and was raging within his breast. "I want it!
I want the City! I'm sick of the silence-and the fields-and-my
God-how I want to hear men-
I-Ie paused. And his mood changed. 4
"And if to-night," he finished sadly. "If to-night I might leave
these isles of isolation, I would go-I would go-back to the City."
The girl at his side had listened silently. Once or twice a con-
vulsive sob may have shaken her frame-for it was cruel-this last
l i .
speech. Not intentionally cruel, it is true, for Meredith was llke Pl
lost soul in the desert who spies a mirage-and the W111C Of .1115 llnag'
inings had intoxicated him. :But it was cruel, nevertheless. g
NVhile Meredith was still uttering his final words, they had
rounded the bend. But no longer did the TreasL11'C of 'Che Bf31'1Ch
Road arouse in Meredith pleasurable sensations. They approached the
gate and as he was fumbling at the chain circlet, Mary suddenly ex-
claimed in a tone almost as clear and ringing as,.was usual:
"Wliy, Jim, I believe I forgotgthe mail this morningf'
And running to the post at the side of the road upon which
had been affixed the customary HR. F. D. Box, AuthorizedN,by the
Postmaster Generalf' she opened it, and thrust her little hand into its
recesses. Producing as a result of the search two country papers and
a letter, she returned to where!Meredith stood, head bent thought--
fully, awaiting her at the gate. A . ,
A woman would have said that she had grasped at this straw
to regain her self-composure. But who knows?
The stoop was empty. Mr. and Mrs. Perry must have re-
tired. The light was still shining from the window. Meredith won-
dered what time it was. As he moodily entered the house thru the
front-door, he stopped short. Mary had spoken his name. He turned.
Mary's face was pale and her hand trembled, as she held forth the
white square envelope. , , '
"A letter for you, jim," she said bravely though faltering.
"A letter-for me F" Meredith raised his brows in surprise. "'A
letter-a letter-" he received it piously and scanned its face- a
slight cry broke from his lips. "From her-My God!" .
And the next instant he was stumbling up the stairs to his
The City had sounded its last and mightiest Call!
Once in his little chamber he trembled violently in every limb.
With difficulty he discovered a match with which to light the candle
upon the chair by his bed. Then he sank to a sitting position upon
the bed. V
t Again he peered at the white linen envelope upon which was
wrltterr in dainty feminine script: "James W. Meredith, Sampson,
ill. Yi Sip1pson,AN. Y.? Ah, yes, he remembered-he had written
H221 gipgreiggezs nd Sampson, N. Y. was not more than six miles
at. That then accounted for the letter reaching him
-Her letter-Her letter-
Feverishly he tore it open. He drew from it the precious sheet
of paper it contained and in the dim and wavering light of the candle
"I was mistaken. I do love you. Come back, dear.
Almost too carefully Meredith quenched the flickering flame
of the candle. Almost too impulsively he dashed the taper from the
chair to the floor. He arose and opening the window wide, moved
the chair beside it and sat down. XV ith his arm resting upon the sill
and his head upon his hand Meredith looked dreamily out into the
Minutes and hours passed but the man at the window did not
stir. The night breeze died away and the fragrance rising from the
fields somehow spoke of morning. Une by one the stars faded and
disappeared and the slq' slowly became gray. And finally the sun
leisurely looked over the horizon and the little birds began to awaken.
And the Spirit of the Country hummed to herself and Meredith
There was a stir in the kitchen below and even while he lis-
tened a dear little song floated in thru the open window-a song
which carried in its lingering harmony the depths of sadness and de-
And Meredith drew into his lungs deep breaths of the fresh
sweet air and looking again at the new sun arose. He still held the
letter from the Daughter of the City in his hand. He found a match
and striking it, watched it flame for a bare second. Then he held it
to a corner of the perfumed letter and watched the tongue of fire re-
duce it to ashes. As the last black ash dropped to the floor, he smiled.
Again a few notes of the song of sadness climbed to his room. And
Meredith listening again, softly opened the door and passing thru
with a tender whisper of "Mary" upon his lips, closed it behind him.

F T was a fearfully hot afternoon in the year 2916. The
9 thermometer registered 110 degrees in the shade 5 but it
I was much warmer in the stuffy room in the basement
of an office building of Philadelphia. The windows
were closely covered so not a ray of daylight could pen--
etrate into the room.
In the darkness a group of men were assembled, some sitting,
some standing, all minds turned to the same object. An atmosphere
of tense expectancy, mingled with not a little fright prevailed and no
one seemed free from the vague fear which caused a sudden tight-
ening of the nerves, apprehensive glances at the barred door and tense
listening for alien footsteps.
Presently a knock came at the door. Silence immediately
reigned, fraught with terror of the unknown. Then a well known
voice said softly:
1 "It is 1, Ben James."
The door was opened a crack, then wider and a . large man
slipped in, and stumbled over a chair. "A light," he cried pettishly.
"Wl1y do you sit here in darkness ?" No one answered but some one
moved and soon a faint glimmer from a candle sent a sickly glare over
the audience. About one hundred men were crowded in the small
room. Their dress indicated that they were from families of varying
caste, from extreme wealth to poovertyg yet they were united in a
common desire and were ready to work together against a terrible
Ben james quickly walked to the front of the room and held up
his hand for silence. He was used to such gatherings. For weeks he
had been traveling secretly all over the eastern states, addressing just
such tense audiences. Then he began to speak in low guarded tones.
"Fellow citizens, or rather fellow men, you are gathered here
today for a great purpose-a purpose known to you all. It is useless
for me to cite all the wrongs we have suffered in the last five hundred
years under the head of the tyrant, woman. Since 2416 when the
women by a majority in Congress, deprived the men of their right to
vote, they have gradually oppressed us until now we are about to
lose our own personal liberty. If that law passes, compelling us to be
in our homes at nine o'clock at night unless escorted by our wife or
some other reliable woman, it is the duty and privilege of man to rise
up in rebellion and gain our rightsf'
For a moment the speaker paused. A slight murmuring wave
of excitement swept over his audience. -
"I have found the storehouse of all the arms taken from us in
the notable rebellion fifty years ago. It is guarded by two women,
and if we are determined, they will easily fall before a body of about
twenty men. In just one week, the presidentess holds a great celebra-
tion in honor of the five hundredth anniversary of our humiliation.
By midnight they will be tired of their merrymaking and then we can
slip into the capitol, surprise them and the country will be ours-it
will cost a few lives, but what are our lives in comparison to the future
freedom of our sons. VVhat is the pleasure of this assembly ?"
, I For a moment no one spoke-then an old gray haired man
, "Brother, your plan is good. But what if we fail? You re-
member the terrible results of the last revolt. Five thousand men
marched through the streets of the capital propelled with dreadful
rolling-pins and brooms, and then, ah! I was only a lad, but I will
never forget what my father got because he sympathized with the
sufferers. Those men were all dead within a year, from the horrible
confinement in dark dungeons. Men! we can't do it, the women are
too strong for us. We have been deprived of weapons for fifty years,
so know nothing about their use-why-
Suddenly a shrill shriek arose from one man who stood wildly
waving his arms and crying hysterically, "Oh! dear, I don't want to
be locked up in a dark dungeon with awful rats and mice. I can't do
it, I can't," and he fainted. Consternation reigned but above the con-
fusion the calm voice of the .leader commanded silence. Fear took the
place of confusion. Wliat if a woman heard? The man was re-
stored to consciousness with a dash of coldhwater. Again the leader
"We can not fail. I have such a force behind me that the wom-
en can do nothing. Dauntless as women are, they fear firearms. And,"
he enunciated softly, "we have firearms!"
The men were calmed by this display of bravery, and soon be-
gan a lively discussion of the best manner of procedure. Finally the
leader arose saying,
"Now men, you have caught the right spirit. just think, in
one week we shall be free. Let that be your only thought and meet
here again in one week at the same time. The arms will be here and
everything in readiness."
How the next week passed no man knew. As the hours flew,
their apprehension began to grow until by the time of meeting, every-
one was so frightened at his own daring, that it was a very white faced,
shaking audience which gathered in the little room where the leader
was impatiently waiting. The afternoon was taken up with instruc-
tion and a little drill in the use of firearms. Most of the assembly
had never seen a gun before, and it took all the patience of Ben james:
to instruct them properly. As the afternoon wore on, assurance grew
and by evening, it was a very resolute group that gathered to begin
the long ride to Wasliiiigton.
The car which held them all, skimmed over the distance rapidly
and brought the men to the outskirts of the city without mishap. In
a grove were others waiting, and by eleven o'clock an army of five
thousand men had gathered. A
Some were armed with rusty guns and old bullets, others had
swords, and still others with clubs. In the distance the lights of the
capitol twinkled and now and then a faint shout was' borne on the
breeze. Then the great clock boomed out the hour of midnight and the
determined men started for the capitol. As they approached, louder
and louder grew the sound of merrymaking until they had entirely
surrounded the grounds of the building.
'When the commander had fired one shot, they were to make
a charge, seize the presidentess and capture the capitol. The gallant
leader had reckoned without one small detail and that small detail
spoiled the whole expedition.
The gun went off. At the unusual sound there was a stir-
then confusion-then panic reigned. The women seized their arms.
The next moment the shaking men were surrounded by an army of
five hundred women. Wlien dawn broke, each one of the five thou-
sand men was securely locked in the dark room of his own home
awaiting punishment by his wife, and the flag waved peacefully over
a nation still under the control of the tyrant woman.

j a chairq Harry jasper was a lazy, shiftless, discontented
lad. 'I-Ie had very little 'reason to be, for he and his father
lived comfortably, 'though not extravagantly upon Mr.
Jasper's moderate income. X'
I-Iarry's father 'was good-natured, probably too good-natured for
the youth's own welfare. 'At tin1es, however, it was a difficult task for
him hto keep down his wrath, well knowing what it was when once
aroused. Jasper took a great interest in all that surrounded him and,
being very intellectual, it seemed strange that he should select as a
boon companion, the crude backwoodsman, Douglas McShafe.
The commencement day drew near and yet neither father nor
son had made any definiteplans for the boy's future. Patiently year
after year, Mr. Jasper had invested in stocks, hoping that some day
he should reap the profits. i
The day- did come and 'that was the day when Mr. jasper
walked into the house' exclaiming, "Oh, Harry! My dreams have
come true! The stocks' have paid dividends! I am rich now! You
are going to college! You are-"
Here the boy's father broke down with excitement caused by
the joyful news. '
"Is it true? Oh Dad !"'
It was a busy summer-the moving into the new home, the
purchase of the automobile, and the preparation' for college. It was
so busy that the day for the departure came only too soon.
College life was not 'what Harry had expected. Where were
the straw-hatted, lloud-tied individuals of the college of fiction?
VVhere were the meerschaums, the pennant-covered, smoke-filled
rooms, the pillow-fights, the midnight spreads? It was study, study,
study, a Hflunked ex," more 'study and another Hflunked ex". Then
cards come. Those cruel, cruel words-"Studies deficient. Your
name is taken from the roll."
For the next two days, Harry lived in nothingness-the pack-
ing, the unexplained departure and the tiresome trip on the train. The
trip was tiresome, but it came to an end too soon. Oh, that walk
towards home! Choked with fear and rebellion and anger, with ha-
tred to all the world, he neared his fther's house. "Studies deficientf,
VVould his father understand? Not a thought of sorrow or remorse,
just bitter hatred.
"Father, Fm kicked out. 'Studies deficient' "
"lfVliat! Sent home F" The father's hands excitedly opened and
closed, perspiration stood out on his brow, his face was purple with
anger, his rage was that of an animal. "Here, Iive slaved and slaverl
for you to go to college, and then for you to come home with 'Studies
deficient' I'm done with you. Find some place to go and go there
-some place where I'll never see you again."
Harry knew his father's temper. All would be well in the
morning. Nevertheless, the next morning found the youth at the
breakfast table after a restless night. Only a few words passed be-
tween father and son.
"Well, Harry, have you decided what you are going to do ?"
"Yes, father, I'm going to the Canadian woods with Douglas
Yes, his father was in earnest. Still no feeling of submission,
still that rebellious spirit. So this was the way a son was treated by
his father? This was wealth! This was humanity! .........
. . . . . The train stopped at a little snow-covered shack called a
station, at Daren, Canada. A dog team with long-eared, grey, friendly-
looking dogs, awaited the two passengers as they stepped off. If hu-
manity could only take lessons from the dog of the North.
I'Tough" McShafe and Jasper climbed into the sled. McShafe
gave a word of command, for he had had experience with dog teams.
The Canadian woods were nothing new to him. -"Tough" McShafe
had seen twenty years of service in the big trees and his gray-brown
hair covered a world of forest-knowledge.
"Well kid, here's yer bunk-house. Whadda ye think of it ?"
The dogs burst into an open space, 'surrounded by tall cedars,
pines and hemlocks. In the middle of the cleared space was a log
cabin. The cabin was not especially attractive, nor was it unusual,
trappings hung on the irregular row of logs, jutting from the outer
sides and pelts, being cured, hung on the sides. The sod roof was
caved in on one corner and one of the glazed paper windows was
torn. A short distance from the cabin was an elevated, covered plat-
form, reached by a ladder, upon which meat was hung.
The two entered the cabin door. A few dirty clothes were
thrown over the rudely built chair. Near the large fireplace were
two bunks, one above the other. A table in one corner, on which sat
a lamp, a shelf containing a few odd dishes, a closet in which the for-
ester's implements were kept-that was all Harry jasper saw as he
entered the door. ,
"Why does everything look just as if someone had just been
living here? You've been gone almost a year," he remarked in sur-
"Kid, you've a lot tc learn about these here woods. VVho's
been by this shack, it's too far away from civilization for anyone to
pass. We better crawl into our bunks. There's a lot to be did to-mor-
"VVhat about dinner F" '
"You had yer dinner at Daren. VVhat's the matter with ye P"
"I had lunch."
, "Oh you had lunch, did you? Well up here you have break-
fast, dinner and supper, and you have DINNER at NOON."
Evidently "Tough" forgot what he had said about going to
bed, for he silently set about building a fire. A piece of bacon was
taken from the provision platform, some eggs from the water-glass
in which they were stored, and then McShafe cut some of the bread
which they had brought with them from Daren.
As a rule bacon smelled good to the boy, but now the odor
of frying eggs and bacon was nauseating.
"All right, you can feed your face now," called McShafe, re-
moving the bacon and eggs from the fire.
Greasy bacon, bread cut in huge chunks and fried eggs-never!
'KI don't feel well. I'n1 going to bed."
"All right but you oughta eat. You'll be sickerf'
HWhere are the blankets, Tough P"
"There's one on yer bunk and t'other one is out in the shed.
Go get 'er."
J D... N
Two blankets-only two blankets to be covered with in the
coldest place on earth. Harry had to put up with it, for there was
nothing else to do. Slowly he started to take off his clothes.
"VVhat are ye doin'? You'll freeze, kid. Keep them togs on."
Obeying, jasper crawled in between the blankets, but not to
go to sleep. He lay awake until far into the night, wishing he were
back home. just as he was dosing off, something with legs crawled
across his face. It was a spider! Only a spider, but it might as well
have been a rattler. A fear gripped the boy, a fear which he had
never before experienced. Fatigue soon overcame fear and Harry was
It was fully two weeks before the young woodsman became
accustomed to the daily routine-up before daylight, a dash of snow in
the face, bacon and eggs, wood-chopping till the sun was directly over-
head, bacon and eggs or canned beans, more work, bacon and eggs
or canned beans. Sometimes he had flapjacks for breakfast, but the
bacon and eggs were never missing. Venison and other salted meats
hung on the provision platform, but only bacon appeared inside the
The sledgdogs, intelligent, always anxious to be on the go, were
different from what Harry Jasper had thought them to be. They
were not snapping, snarling animals but friendly sort of dogs. Dogs
that one could pet and love, and Harry did love these dogs. Their in-
telligence was remarkable, for many a time had they been sent to Daren
for provisions-a note tied to the leader's collar.
One morning, as summer was approaching and the snow had
begun to melt, "Tough', McShafe started with the dogs for Daren.
It would take them two days, but three days had passed before the
dogs came rushing home to Jasper with no driver. There was no note
in the sled, nothing but a frozen puddle of blood. Harry knew what
had happened. McShafe had been thrown from the sled in the mad
race for home and had been killed. Or maybe some animal-what dif-
ference did it make? McShafe was dead. The dogs had always been
better companions to Jasper than had "Tough.', No human being
could be a friend to him. All men were alike. They were fools! Now
jasper could kill a deer and eat the venison. He would be free from
bacon and eggs for a while.
He raised his gun to shoot. He had a perfect range. It was
only a young deer, innocent, unexpecting. He pulled the trigger and
the deer fell. jasper ran to it. The pitiful gasping of the poor crea-
ture, which had been shot through the leg, brought a sudden feeling
or sympathy and regret to Iasper's heart. He threw the fawn over
his shoulders and started homeward.
For two months the woodsman cared for and petted the dumb
animal. VVhen he left home to continue his work in the big trees,
he assured himself that the deer could not escape. He loved the ani-
mal more than he had ever loved a human being.
One day a storm came, the worst storm Harry jasper had ever
seen. It continued for two days, and then with a crash one of the
immense trees fell upon the roof. Torrents of rain and sleet poured
through the hole in the sod roof made by the fallen tree. The floor
was soon a pond. jasper managed to stand the unpleasant situation
for one night, but when he attempted to remove the huge trunk he
found that he 1nust have help. Besides provisions were low, so prep-
arations for a trip to Daren were made.
The journey was made in ten hours, and before evening of the
next day, Harry had returned with help. The fawn which had been
held captive in the cold, desolate cabin for forty-eight hours, joyfully
rubbed his nose against his master's hand as the two men entered.
The helper was a congenial sort of a fellow. He was wide-awake
and interested in all that went on around him, but he found it diffi-
cult to be friendly with Jasper, who had become so hardened against
humanity. The work of removing the tree and repairing the dam-
aged cabin, although hard, progressed rapidly.
It was after the work had been finished, and the two men
were eating supper that Iasper's companion remarked:
"There is a lot of money in this world that never reaches its
rightful owner. I saw about a month ago in the Daren paper a notice
that read something like this: 'Harry Hunt jasper-Somewhere near
Daren, Canada: Your father is dying. Come homef "
"'This is interesting. Go on."
"I was inetrested, too, so I followed the case up in the pa-
pers. I read of the old man's death and that Harry Hunt jasper was
the sole heir. I said. to myself, 'T hat man will probably never hear
of that money and he'll newer go back. Then the lawyers will have
a nice sum to divide among themselves."
"Well, there's Where you're mistaken. Harry Hunt Jasper has
heard of the money and he is going back. When you go to Daren to-
morrow, Harry Hunt Jasper goes with you."
He was going home. All was ready. Harry bade farewell to
his fawn by setting him free. As the sled dashed off, the deer in-
stead of fleeing to make its liberty more certain, started to follow and
then gazed almost wistfully at the departing sled.
Jasper was a different man. It seemed years to him since he
had been clean shaven or had worn a stiff collar, but the smooth chin
and grating collar irritatel him. I-Ie had expected to feel more self-
respect and like his old self, but instead he felt as if he were in a
straight-jacket. He thought of his care-free life in the woods-far
from the obligations of society.
Then came the hardest part, the disposal of the cabin, the land
and his beloved dog-team and sled. The dogs were not wanting for
a market for t'Tough" McShafe had known a good sled dog when he
Jasper did not like the appearance of the future owner of his
dogs. The purchasers drew out of his pocket a crisp bunch of bank
notes, and counted them, one by one.
Jasper put out his hand-then drawing it back, he turned
away from the astounded man and shouted:
"Go it, Dick. Home."
The leader knew and the rest of the dogs knew. Harry Jasper
was speeding back-back to his home with Nature's creatures.

Che Gureha Eigb School Grounds
E HE grounds of the Eureka High School consist of eleven
ii' acres the larger part of which is given over to athletic
equipments. But aside from this a place is reserved for
alll! the high school building and its gardens. The garden-
effect planned by the Cottage Gardens Nurseries, un--
der the supervision of Mr. K. Nyland is designed espe-
cially to set off a beautiful cream colored concrete building. The
shrubs, evergreens and flowering plants employed in carrying out the
scheme of wonderful decoration rank from the odd to the strangely
beautiful. They were furnished by Charles Willis Ward, owner of
the Cottage Gardens Nurseries.
A gravelled drive-way extending from the south side around
back of the building to the street on the north bounds the grounds laid
out in gardens.
At the back of the school house between the drive and the walk
are great Red Horsechestnuts and Red Oak trees. These correspond
to the Sycamores and Spruces planted at the opposite side of the yard
in front of the Manual Training building. The result of the planting
of large trees at the back of the building will be a background pleas-
ing to the eye of the most fastidious artist.
Purple plum is used to build up to the Sycamores, Cotoneaster
adorns the entrances on the north side and Hawthorne and Boxwoorl
decorate the sides and back directly beneath the schoolhouse windows.
Japanese Acallas, that little plant of brilliant bloom, serves to relieve
the green of the Horsechestnuts and Oaks.
The front of the school yard is divided into three parts by two
walks which divide from the main entrance in front of the great steps
leading to the main entrance of the school building.
The center plot of the divisions thus formed will be planted in
Choysia Temata, Biota and lawn. The large plots to left and right of
the center plot are planted alike. On the corners next the street are
japanese Cypress, Retinospora and Juniper planted in the shape of a
triangle. Qu the corners opposite them towards the center plot will be
triangular masses of pink--Howered, fragrant Heather. ln the corners
next the school building to left and right of the center plot will be the
yellow-Howered Berberis, that shrub of such bright autumn colors.
Taxus hibernica trims the corners opposite those planted in Berberis
and in front of these green Italian Cypresses wave their whips of
bodies that will later be graceful, slender trees.
In the center of each of the large plots, if it battles more suc-
cessfully than in the past, will be an Arancaria tree. This tree is a
native of Brazil and does not appear to be thriving remarkably well in
Eureka's cool climate, but it is hoped the tree will become accustomed
to this degree of temperature. I
Nearer the building to the left and right of the main entrance
Bay trees of a shape resembling a chocolate-drop are placed at regular
intervals across to the basement entrances, and beyond the basement
entrances to the sidewalks running to the back of the schoolhouse.
Beneath the Bay trees will be a mass of common and French Hydran-
geas mixed with the yellow-berried Caprosma.
Lawn,, rich, green and freshly cool will fill the spaces between
the trees and shrubbery. T he grounds, which are being worked at the
present time, are rapidly changing from unsightly spaces of barren
soil and weed-grown stretches to a garden that promises to be one
of the beauty-spots of the county.
For this work we are sincerely grateful to our friend and bene-
factor, Charles Willis VVard. He has helped to make our school one
in which we are glad to live. In education, beauty is an inspiration.
It is with a feeling somewhat of awe and pride, and of thankfulness
too, to the man who gave it that we approach this garden spot in our
daily sojourn here.

Che I-Deople's College
EOPLE are slowly but steadily coming to realize that a
if? high school education is indispensible to the modern
Q man and woman. The reason for the success of the
5: 19 high school is due largely to the changing conception of
A91 its purpose. We no longer think of it as merely a pre-
paratory school for the university or normal but as the
people's college where the mass of boys and girls are trained for taking
their places in the world.
This training is started in the elementary schools by developing
the habit of obedience, promptness and order. It is the high school
that enlarges, rounds out, and completes this work, for it is at the high
school age that the habits and ideals, which constitute the basis of
Character, are formed. In the high school the students meet the same
difliculties which will confront them in later life. Education is to the
modern man and Woman all-important, for it fits them for the respon-
sibility of life. Before a student can successfully complete his high
school career he must and does learn to receive instructions and to
carry them out at the required time, thus developing executive ability,
that will be an invaluable asset in the future of any person Whatever
his work may be. Problems present themselves for solution, and
daily tasks must be performed-in the doing of which singleness of
aim and purpose becomes thoroughly instilled in the doer. In the
organizations of school life the students learn self-government and feels
for the first time the resulting consciousness of the responsibility
carried by each member 'of any body politic-. Freedom to the high
school boy or girl does not mean the casting away of all restraint but
liberty controlled. He learns to sacrifice the individual whim to the
will of the majority and in general to adjust himself to those about him.
To the old scholastic method of learning from books is added
the modern method of learning by doing. Used together these develop
resourcefulness, selfconfidence, judgment, and the critical faculty, as
well as the fundamental book knowledge. The high school pupil must
learn to distinguish the true from the false, the excellentfrom the
mediocre. He must learn to free himself from prejudice, to be open
to new impressions, and to give them their proper valuation. The high
school training, of course, only begins this development, but neverthe-
less it is very important. The high school is one of the greatest level-
ing forces in our democracy as standards of gauging values, wealth
gives place to merit, and social position to achievement. Whatever
faults the high schcol has, it is not stagnant, for the last decade has
seen great strides in its development. 'Within the next few years the
advancement will no doubt be even more rapid, and we will have, in
its highest form, a People's College.

The Associated Students have made the closing year, 1915-1916,
a banner year in the history of the Red and Green. A great deal of
school spirit has been manifested in all the events. Much credit for
the increase of the school spirit must be awarded to our yell leader.
Owing to Mr. Neighborls change in the program last year, the entire
Student Body has been able to attend all our meetings which helps to
make our dear old HE. H. S." boom with interest. The officers for
the past year were: President, Melvin Sanders, Vice-President, Do-

Boys' Literary Society.
A large debating society was started in the early part of this
year. Much interest has been taken by the students, especially the
lower classmen who give promise of excellent material, for debating
in the ensuing years. The boys gained much by this practice in public
speaking and will be amply repaid for the time given. The Officers for
the past year were: President, Page Cutten 5 Vice-President, Edmund

'Che Boys' Hgricultural Society
The society formed last year, known as the Agricultural So-
ciety, aroused interest both in the high school and among the citizens
of Eureka by their activity. We extend our utmost thanks to the
Humboldt Development Association and other kind citizens who made
the success of the club possible. All the boys who completed the con--
test received a trip to Davis College while the most successful boy
Robert Haughey, received a trip across the continent. The officers for
1915-1916 were: President, John Wahl, Vice-President, Ralph Smith'
Secretary, Carlton Petterson 3 Treasurer, Louis Downer.
" 'Che BER"
The students of the Sophomore B class of the high school have
taken upon themselves the responsibility of publishing a .paper which
appears at regular intervals. This is the first attempt of any class to
publish a periodical and much interest is being displayed. "The Bee"
is edited by a staff chosen by the class and contains items of inter-
est to the entire school.
The staff is composed of the following: Editor, Kenneth
Stewartg Associate Editors, Edmund Chrisholm and Leanore Van
Horng Reporters, Edwin Skinner, Chispa Cairns, and Lurline Free-
mang Business Managers, Henry McCui-dy, Helen Ryan, and Harold

The Parent-Teachers' Association, composed of the parents of
the students and the faculty of our school, have completed a most
successful year. The cafeteria established by them has proven to be
one of the comforts of our beautiful school. Mrs. I. W. Carbray was
chosen President, Mrs. E. Langford Vice-President, Miss B. K. Ache-
son Secretary, Mrs. H. W. Hamilton Treasurer.
The Estimating Committee composed of Miss Acheson, chair-
mang Melvin Sanders and Beatrice Atwell, executive oflicersg Lee
Clark and Clarissa Foster, carefully estimated the expenses of the
Student Body and arranged the dues accordingly.

i Through the efforts of Farm Adviser Christensen and Miss Clark
of the University of California, the girls of the Eureka High School
have organized an agricultural club. This club gives promise of a
bright future. Dorothea Hill was chosen President, Jessie Dickson

Al G. Barnes' big circus came to our city in September and
school was dismissed after roll call so we could see the 'parade and
attend the afternoon performance. We hope Al G. Barnes comes back,
to Eureka very soon.
Since there was a great deal of work to be done on the track
the boys kindly offered to come and work all Saturday, two weeks
before the meet. Not to be outdone, the girls, with the aid of the
teachers, planned a dinner for the laborers and managed to keep it
a secret. At noon the surprised boys were summoned to a hot dinner
which, from all appearances, was greatly appreciated.
In September, Dr. Berwick, who is temporary president of the
great International Peace Movement, addressed the student body on
the question of "Peace" Much good was derived from the lecture.
Also in September a short, but enjoyable concert was given by
the Fife's who were in our city on an evangelistic campaign.
The week before the Track Meet was a time of much enthu-
siasm. A very noisy rally was held on Thursday afternoon during
which notably short addresses were given by the various members of
the track team, the band played and the students cheeredf In spite
of the rain a short rally was held Friday evening at the school, around
a large bonfire. Later on the entire bunch paraded the main streets
of the town. The dampness had no effect on anybody's voice or spirits.
During the Xmas holidays George Vestel, our yell leader, left
for the sunny south, and his efficient assistant, Page Cutten, ably
stepped into his shoes. For such a small person, he makes a great deal
A slight change was instituted in the program after Christmas,
school being dismissed at half past three instead of three seven. The
extra seventeen minutes were made into an assembly period.
The boys' Literary and Debating Society have given several
very interesting and instructive programs during the assembly period
since the first of the term. VVe hope they will keep up their good Work.
Dr. Maria Sanford from the University of California delivered
a very interesting lecture to the students in january. We did not re-
gret the loss of the last period which was given to her for she gave
much valuable instruction. A
The student body was glad to receive "Billie" W'est into our
midst from Ferndale.
-lack Wahl was taken from our midst in February by a bad
attack of appendicitis. We were certainly glad to see him return to
us a few weeks later.
Loretta-Bagley left school in March to go to Work in the Dia-
mond Fruit Company's office.
The agricultural boys returned from Davis, much pleased with
their short stay, and pronounced their trip worth the Work.
Robert Haughey returned from his tour to Washington, very
glad to get back home again. He reported a very interesting trip and
does not regret the loss of half a year's work.
Mr. Lambert and Mr. Ahrens spoke to the students on the
value of an education in the business world, during the first weeks of
March. Such advice from prominent business men is very valuable to
those students who hope to enter the business world.
On March 21 Dr. Murdock addressed the students on the his-
tory of early Humboldt. He is a Humboldter, having come here in
1855, and told us many interesting facts.
As we go to press we are glad to learn that Dorothy Falk is
convalescing from her very serious illness. She is greatly missed by
all, both in the school room and on the tennis court, where she was
captain. VVe all wish "Dot" a very speedy recovery.
Page Cutten has replaced Dorothy Falk as tennis captain, tem'-
Guy Leatherwood has left school to take a position in the Eu-
reka Water Company.
Charlie Barnum, after a short term at High School, decided he
would rather discontinue, so is now enjoying an extended vacation.
The Parent-Teachers' Association installed a cafeteria in the
basement during the winter months, so that the students could purchase
a hot dinner. The experiment was a great success and will he fol-
lowed out every winter.
Miss Clark, domestic science expert, from the University,
spoke to the girls in March, urging them to organize an agricultural
club. The girls are to plant beans and can them before the contest
is over. About sixty girls signified their intention of joining.
The Sophomore A girls supervised a general cleaning up day
on March 18. Qwing to the unsettled weather, as many as would have
liked to could not turn out, but those who came, reported a good time.

Freslnnan Reception. October 8, 1915.
Early in October an expectant crowd gathered in Eureka's new
High School Building to watch the much frightened Freshmen, some
of whom were doubtful, some confident yet all were eager as they
were ordered into the classroom for inspection. Suddenly there came
a terrible "Bing! Bang!" from the high school orchestra and the
"Freshies', who were designated by green dots on their faces were
seen coming up the aisle of the assembly room. A very line program
ensued and the faculty, visitors, and students were constantly in an
uproar of laughter caused by many amusing pranks played on these
bashful looking children. During this program ice-cream cornucopias
and highly colored stick candy were served by members of the com-
Alufnni Dance, December 22, 1915.
The Eagles' Hall was most artistically decorated with greens
and cut flowers for the purpose of entertaining the home-coming
alumni. Dancing was the principal feature of the evening and every-
one enjoyed themselves with the usual good time.
The E7Zf87'l'ClZi7l1I1811f of the Ag1'1iC1tlf1t1'Gl Club. Dec. 3, 1915.
The agricultural boys of the Eureka High School entertained
the corresponding clubs of Fortuna, Ferndale, and Arcata at the
Tavern, on the first Saturday evening of December. It was a farewell
entertainment for Mr. Wilson, who was the assistant farm adviser
from the University of California during the fall of 1915. The early
portion of the evening was enjoyed with a banquet, music and enter-
tainment in general following.
Mid-W'inter Junior Dance, Jan, 7, 1916,
The first dance held in the new High School Vkras given by the
junior B class to the Senior B class. The members of the junior class
deserve a great deal of credit for being such lovely hosts and hostesses.
P he room where punch was served was decorated with purple and
gold crepe paper. A few parents and members of the faculty were
present and as the last dance ended everybody was glad they had
The Seizior A Class Ellfflfdilll the Senior B Class.
One of the most successful entertainments given this year was
the crab dinner given by the Senior A Class to the Sen'ior B Class of
1916. The crab motif was in evidence throughout the dinner, which
was served in the sewing room of the high school. This room was
artistically decorated in the class colors of purple and gold. Im-
promptu toasts were made by the presidents and faculty advisers of
the two classes and afterwards a musical program and dancing were
enjoyed in the assembly hall.
fun-i0'r B's and 50f71'L0'74107'6 A19 Eiitcrtaziz. Feb. 11, 1916.
A successful "get acquainted party" was enjoyed by the 313
and 2A classes of the Eureka High School on Friday night. A short
program was followed by games in the assembly hall and refreshments
in the basement about nine-thirty. The late hour at which they dis-
persed gave evidence of the success of the "get acquainted partyf,
1176311111611 Reception. Feb. 18, 1916.
The members of the Mid-winter Freshmen Class were enter-
tained and incidentally did some entertaining themselves. The junior
A Class had charge of the ceremonies. Being a fancy dress affair the
members of the student body were attired in costumes of every de-
scription, which lent variety and considerable laughter to the occas-
ion. The lirst part of the evening consisted of reducing the luckless
Freshmen to a long string of "fresh sausages" by grinding them in
a sausage mill which was erected in the center of the stage. V
The second part of the entertainment was a farce, "Mrs jar-
1ey's Wax Works," the junior class taking part.
Punch and wafers were served throughout the evening.

The music of our school has proven to be a constant source of
enjoyment not only for the students but also for the members ofthe
community as well. It has been demonstrated in the Eureka High
School that the unceasing effort of any devotee to music will surely
bring reward. The first year that the band and orchestra were organ-
ized, of course, did not develop a finished product, but aided by Mr.
Mundy and Mr. Frazee they gradually improved until this year we
can proudly say that our band and orchestra are musical organizations
in every sense of the word. Mr. F. B. Flowers was chosen from
several applicants to fill the position left vacant by Mr. Frazee and has
successfully added his time and talent for the development of the
skill of our musicians.
The orchestra furnished the music for the high school play and
for the graduation exercises and on these occasions proved the success
of Mr. Flowers, instruction of the boys and girls. The rehearsals are
on Friday mornings, from eight to nine.
Following are the members:
Violins: Lottie Barkdull, Edward Nagley, Kempton Hunter,
Esther Sandmeyer, Margaret Watsoii, Harold McDonald, Irvin Hov-
Cornets: Anshelm Remell, Drury Falk.
Clarinet: Arthur Remell.
Flute: Ely Barkdull.
Trombone: Husted Heinrici.
Bass: Melvin Sanders.

The Band has played on numerous occasions, among these at

creasing in roll. They are improving a great deal and are sure to be
prominent in the next annual concert. The Band rehearses regularly
on Monday and Wedensday mornings from eight to nine o'clock.

RAY MCLAREN GRACE coNN1cK CATALINA DIVINIGRACIA
That the Eureka High School went into debating this year with
the intent of carrying off the county championship was certain for
weeks before the season opened.
A new and highly successful plan had been adopted, which it
is hoped will be continued in the future. A faculty committee was
named Whose purpose it was "to boosti' debating. As a consequence
of their enthusiastic campaign more than a score entered for the first
try-outs. From these seven Were selected to await the final try-outs
set for March 8. Upon that date Rae McLaren, Grace Connick and
Catalina Divinigracia, with Lyle Sarvis as alternative were chosen to
represent the Eureka High School. The team thus selected defeated
Fortuna, March 25, Eureka defending the affirmative of the question:
"Resolved, that the United States government should acquire vessels
to be operated in foreign and domestic tradef,
April 14 was designated for the final struggle with Arcata, and
upon Friday night our team defeated Arcata in a hard-fought verbal
battle, Winning a unanimous vote from the judges and securing for
the Eureka High School the debating series. Our representatives
showed throughout commendable preparation, no small degree of the
credit for this being due to the unwearyiug efforts of the debating
The people of Eureka manifested an unusual interest in the
debating contest, for the Assembly of the high school was filled with a
large and appreciative audience, to Witness the victory of Eureka over
Arcata. This was probably due to the fact that a live topic of dis-
cussion vvas chosen and debaters well able to do it justice.

Arts and Crafts, Berkeley, Calif.-There are no criticisms to be
It is a great pleasure to read your papers.
Azalea, Sebastopol, Calif.-An exceptionally fine paper, and we
do not see where it could be improved. We congratulate you.
Beacon, Detroit, Mich.-Your cover design is very good, in-
deed, and likewise your snaps. The literary is excellent.
Caduceus, Chico, Calif.-You have a good paper, but we think
your cuts could be improved.
Dawn, Esparto, Calif.-We suggest that in your Exchange de-
partment, you give criticisms instead of just mentioning the names of
the papers. The Commencement Number is good but the cover de--
sign and color of your Rural Life Number is the best.
El Gabilan, Salinas, Calif.-Your book has very excellent cuts
and an artistic cover design.

UE credit can well be given the students of the Eureka
' ' High School for their interest and activity in the dra-
Q 66 matic art. This year a dramatic society was organized
Nd with a comparatively large membership. After the or-
ganization of this society the comedy, "Trelawny of the
Wellsl' was selected to be staged on December seven-
teenth at the Imperial Theater. Through this play the talent of many
of the participants is to be recognized, for the play was exceedingly
diffifult for a high school society. The time of the acting for the play
was in the early sixties when the stage was looked on in a different
sense than it is to-day.
The play centers upon Rose Trelawny, who is a beautiful young
actress. She is engaged to marry Arthur Gower, of the titled and
aristocratic Gower family. Sir Williaiii Gower, Arthur's uncle, keenly
feels the sense of his aristocratic blood and so does not thoroughly
approve of his nephew's choiceg however, Rose is given a chance to
prove herself worthy, for which purpose she is invited to the home of
the Gowers. Rose finds the life hard, for absolute dignity reigned in-
stead of the free and informal li-fe of actors and actresses. One night
some of her old friends of the stage visit her after the family had re-
tired. Her, guests become too noisy and as a result awoke the inmates
of the house. Her guests are driven out and Rose is harshly repri-
manded, so harshly that she leaves.
Wlieii, on returning to the stage, she finds that her former
charm and ability for acting are gone. Arthur Gower does not give
up his love for Rose but leaves his home to enter into the profession
of acting. '
Tom Wrencli, a struggling playwright, after many financial
complications enlists the aid of Sir William Gower towards the pro--
cluction of a comedy of his. Tom, secretly in love with Rose, realizes
that his case is hopeless so sets about to bring the two lovers together.
Wfrench, unknown to Rose, who is to be the leading lady in his comedy.
makes Arthur the leading man. Their meeting at the rehearsal brings
to a happy conclusion "Trelawny of the Wells.'l
The school as a whole owes much to Miss Henry, who kindly
put aside her own pleasure for the sake of the school by coaching the
play. The cast, which was chosen by her with the assistance of two
other members of the faculty, was as follows:

schools, the victory for Ferndale not being decided until the last race
Through the efforts of Coach Jones a strong team had been de-
veloped for Eureka. Captain Olsen was a constant point winner, Nor-
man Gibbs took the mile easily, breaking the record of 5:26 and es-
tablishing a new one of 5:08. Hindley of Ferndale succeeded in rais-
ing the high jump record from 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 7 inches.

the score being 42-29. Ferndale played a hard, clean game but our girls
proved to be their superiors in every way. The first few minutes of
play brought a tie between the two teams, but shortly after Eureka
came to the front with a long rally that continued throughout the
game. Joyce of Eureka was easily the best center in the game and was
well supported by Davis and Hodgson. Urquhart, Cave and Soules
nlayed brilliant games at their positions as guards while Falk. Lambert,

A LOVERIS SOLILQQUY.
I can hear the church bells tolling
From afar across the sea,
And a thought from the deep sea rolling
01' one who waits for me,
Comes gently upon my fevered heart
Bringing peace and cheer to me.
'Tis a thought of a face that is far away,
Of a heart that was always true,
That ne'er was surplanted in her day
By a face that was pretty and new.
She was as fair as an Indian summer,
As sweet as a red moss rose,
Which nestles amongst its leaves so green
With its petals in full blow.
And now she has gone forever
Into the great, great deep,
And I am left plodding my way as ever,
Until my time to sleep.
But the journey's almost finished,
I hear the bells once more,
I have followed her face since the day
We parted at her door.
Ah then, when the journeys ended,
Where there's bliss enough for all,
In the great, great deep were blended
I can hear her sweet voice call.
Thus ends this little poem,
The time to sleep is at hand
For mother has blown out the candle
And left me where,I stand.

Miss Heeney-How did the children dress in colonial times?
Peterson-Like their fathers.
Miss Heeney-That applies to girls also, I suppose?
Mr. Jones Qin chemistryj-Now you understand that there isn't
any such thing as HO.
H. H.-How about mush?
You'll always make a hit, and make
Folks think that you are right,
If this advice you'll only take,-
Keep your mouth closed tight.

N elson-Oh, just drop it.
You all do know this wondrous boy,
Fm sure he is our greatest joy,
Cn afternoons, he used to go-
But where he went no one did know.
And at times we did not see,
No one could solve the mystery.
Qnce, in the hall a bunch of boys
Thought they heard a funny noiseg
Now it sounded lou dand shrill
Now it sounded loud and shrill 4
The sound came from the teacher's room.

And in anger out he cried.
Since, better duty he has kept
And no more on the couch has slept.
"The cost of living soarsf, said Jones,
"Its progress is surprisingg
I wouldn't be surprised a bit
To hear that yeast is rising."

Sweet music on the twilight breeze,
A gentle murmur through all the trees 5
The leaves are whispering one by one,
And then by thousands: The day is done.
Wlietlier in palace, hall or cottage door,
Wlietlier in city, village, or expanseless moor,
To each and all they whisper one by one,
Silence! Silence! the day is done.
