JY Y 'Y l 1 ' ' x ' , fC D A4 Christianity is put above everything else. Because to know God gives an appetite for knowledge. Therefore to accept the Christ-life carries with it the obligation to establish instruction appropriate to that life. There will ever go up from the heart of our denomination a prayer of thanks because our name, once despised, is now honored, our forefathers were poor, to-day We are leaders in education 5 our schools were few and weak, but now they are numbered by the thousands, and are called the very best. Most of these schools and colleges were born out of weakness and rocked in the cradle of poverty. Franlclin's history is but the story of nearly all our institutions of learning. Founded by faith and es- tablished by Works. At first the institution was named " Indiana Baptist Manual Labor Institute," and was housed in a white frame building costing 3350. It was almost impos- sible for the board to obtain a teacher to take charge of the school, as it had very little money to offer. There were some signs of life till about 1841, when there seemed to have settled about everything, in any way connected with the college, a cloud of the blackest gloom. The board met and, for a while, seemed to have lost the battle. But when a band of men meet and wrestle in prayers, as did the founders of Frank- lin College, the gloom is sure to disappear. They determined to go to the next meeting and do all in their power to build up and sustain the institution. The cloud began to pass away. The sun began to smile upon the work, and in 1845 a charter was secured and the old Nllanual Labor Institute ll be- came Franklin College. Rev. Geo. Chandler was our first president. He did much to advance the educational interest of the Baptists in Indiana. The north wing of the college was erected during his administration. The skies were brighter than they had been at any previous time, and the founders were inspired with fresh hope. In 1847, John NV. Dame was graduated with the degree of A. B. Everything was going along in fine shape. Franklin was a real college and had an alumnus. Brother Dame had the distinction of being the only graduate of Franklin for three years. After Dr. Chandler resigned, in 18419, there was an interregnuin till 1852, when Dr. Silas Bailey be- came president. The south wing was built during A--, gfg., Q1 2 ff. 1 ,., ,B fm, Q I - illff 'W z"'A ,X 'wismxx-335351 V 221, --r - "ig.

He was a man six feet four inches in height, with proportionate mental and spiritual development. He put his very best into the Work placed before him. He won the love, not only of the students, but of the entire denomination. VVhen he retired from the college in 1862, all felt that it was a great loss to the cause. VVhen the nation called for her sons to don the blue and ff fall in " for war, such a thrill of patriot- ism passed through the old college that nearly all the young men volunteered. This closed the doors of the institution for three years. Dr. VV. T. Stott was called to tne presidency in 1872, and from that time the school has moved for- ward, gathering strength and popularity with each succeeding year. The denomination has been thoroughly aroused to the importance of Christian education, and has rallied about the leaders in this work, with their money and prayers. To-day Franklin College is one of the strongest in the State, and offers to the students the very best in all the lines of work. Eight courses are offered which lead to one of three degrees. The Greek course leads to the degree of A. B., the Mathematics, Biology and Chemistry courses to the degree of B. S. 5 the Latin, History, English and Modern Language courses to the degree of Ph. B. There is a larger number of students in Franklin this year than in any previous year. The people of the State are realizing that the denominational schools offer, not only the best opportunities for doing good work, but eyery advantage for developing the moral side of the student. The Christian associations are eyer striving to keep the bible and its teachings before those who come to Franklin. The college board and faculty do all in their power to realize the motto of the institution, tt Christianity and Culture." All students are required to belong to one of the three literary societies. This has done much to raise the standards of these societies. Beginning with this year, three years are required in the Preparatory department, thus raising the standard of the college equal to that of any college in the country, and plac- ing it far aboye many. Athletics have been doing honor to Franklin in the last few years. The athletic park has been the place where our boys haye defeated some of the best foot- ball teams in the State. The gymnasium is well equipped and is enjoyed by nearly all the students. The debating society and the oratorical clubs haye been moving to the front in the contests. Franklin students can and will do good work in all lines of literary work. May the gold and the blue eyer stand for L' Chris- tianity and Culture. H 34 V1 ,. ,.. .

T o assist hini in this, one line of intellectual train- ing is pursued through the year, the first terin being given to psychology, the second to logic, and the third to the history of philosophy. The other line consists of a study of Ethics the first terin, Political Economy the second, and ZEsthetics the third. More stress is put upon the inastery of the subject than upon the niere text. Supplementary reading is required on all these subjects in so far as our libraries furnish the literature. The class-rooni discussions are considered indispensable to a liberal view of the particular subject in hand. Recitations are daily throughout the year. No one who enters these classes can fail to see that, after all, inere reason is very feeble, and back of all is the guiding hand of Hini who niade the very laws of Ethics and created the wonderful reasoning power of inan. . Sonietiines a student will enter a class in this department, feeling that he has inastered all that great niinds have thought ont, but when the professor assigns soine outside reading and says "you inay have to read it over fourteen tiines before you begin to understand it,7' he is inade to realize that a great big senior U est nihilf' VV. T. Stott, D. D., L. L. D., has been at the head of our beloved college for over thirty years. There are few churches in this State which have not felt his influence. His life is being lived in many parts of the world by those who learned not only the text which he teaches, but the things which inade hini the grand Christian nian that he is. As professor in the Department of Philosophy, Dr. Stott is next to none in this part of the country. He was born in Jennings County, near Vernon, May 22, 18336. He spent his boyhood on the farin, and while there learned the lessons which gave hini the foundation for his genuine character and true Christian nianhood. He entered Franklin College in 1857, and was graduated with the fanious class of 1861. .-Xt this tinie the whole country was lost in the thought of war. Dr. Stott was one of the Franklin students who becaine 'L a boy in blue." He was mustered out in 186-1 with the rank of Captain. The three years following the war he spent in the Theological Senii- nary at Rochester, N. Y. He labored as a pastor for one year and then becanie a teacher in the college. In 1872 he was elected president of the college, and has filled that place ever since. He is a ineinber of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. DR. W. T. STOTT Mathematical Department LASSES come and classes go but the Mathemat- ical department remains a constant quantity. lt is diiiicult to conceive that it shall ever be other- wise, for mathematical studies looked at from a prac- tical point of View underlie so many intelligent pur- suits and employments as to render an acquaintance with them of great importance, while looked at from a theoretical point of View they afford a fine mental discipline, as they demand from the student earnest voluntary exertion. Few students attain much success in mathematics unless willing to sub- mit themselves to steady and continued discipline. No other line of studies demands greater self-denial, patience and perseveranceg and this at a period in life when restraint and application are peculiarly valuable. It.will appear then that the aim of the department is three-fold : mental discipline, develop- ment of character, and knowledge. The methods employed vary with the different sub- jects treated, and to some extent with indiyidual students. Wliatevei' the method used, clearness, ac- curacy and careful expression of thought are de- manded. The mathematical rooms are large with eastern and southern windows. A small but yaluable library renders much assistance in the various lines of study. The blackboard space is too limited for the Freshman class but allows about twenty to write at the same time. Dryuess and drudgery are terms often connected with this department, but all is not dryness though it must be admitted dust is fiying much of the time. He will be a benefactor to teachers who inyents a dustless crayon. The drudgery, too, is enliyened now and then by the introduction of matter not con- templated by the makers of the text-book. Exami- nation papers sometimes reyeal original defmitions, as for instance, 'tGeometry is the means by which we imaginef' After all, where is the imagination more needed than in the study of geometry? The student who spoke of the "conjugal diameters" of an ellipse was perhaps taking lessons in "campustry," while he who is classifying logaritlnns changed "hyperbolic system" to ' 'diabolic system" unconsciously expressed his aversion to adyauced algebra. The teacher sus- pects, however, that the youth who gaye the "Cussoid of Dioclesl' for the "Cissoid of Dioclesn was one who sought out many inventions. Close study and much study usually bring to the student of mathematics rewards in the quickeued perceptions, in the conscious ability to meet difficult problems, and in the mastery of mental powers. These are possessions which may be made available in many directions. ' Professor Rebecca J. Thompson has had charge of this department for oyer twenty-five years. She is one of the best in the country. The students loye her as a teacher and a true Christian lady. PROF. R. J. THOMPSON Department 't 777 "' "rl HE Biological Labo- vf ratory of Franklin y it 7 ' College consists of three well lighted rooms on the .7 "'l if l , 1 fourth floor of the main ifg',,, t building. lt is furnished if with water, gas, micro- scopes, microtome, reag- ents, charts, etc., all the most useful appliances found today in any well arranged laboratory. The purpose of this department is to give the nature as she is, and to afford him a comprehensive knowledge of the laws which underlie all development, thus opening up before him the method by which she has in the past, is at the present, and will in the future bring about changes in organism. The department, by no means, places all the stress upon the Hhand writing upon the wallf' but is careful that the student gets some conception of the individual who does the writing. It's through nature to nature's God. The method by which these results are obtained is by daily investigation with scalpel and microscope in the laboratory, by means of a familiarity with the organism in respect to its habitat, daily recitations, lectures, quizzes, etc. The subject of geology, while not properly a department of biology, yet, because of the lack of teaching force, is under the charge of this depart- ,QV ! V , 1 ,,,. ' students a familiarity with of Biology ment. The method of bringing its facts to the mind of the student is by means of daily recitations from books of the most advanced thinkers and investiga- tors in this line of work, in connection with the well selected and classified Gorby Cabinet of more than thirty-five thousand specimens collected in America and many foreign countries. This department, under the efficient management of Prof. Owen, has done much to place Franklin College in the front among the colleges of the State. Prof. David A. Owen was born in Green County, this State, on December 11, 1852. His boyhood days were spent upon the farm, working during the summer and attending the district school during the winter. At the age of eighteen he entered Point Commerce High School, where he remained two terms. The following two terms were spent teach- ing school. ln 18733, feeling that God had something more than being a country school teacher in store for him, he entered Franklin College, from which he was graduated with the degree of A. B. in 1878. In 1878-79, he was principal of Salem High School. In 1879-82, he was tutor in Franklin College. ln 1881, Prof. Owen received two honors, one from the college and the other from Johnson County. The people of the county elected him to the position of superintendent, and the college gave him the degree of M. A. He has been teaching in the college since 1879. Prof. Owen is a member of the Indiana Academy of Science, of the American Association for the advancement of Science, and of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. Chemistry and Physics HE leading thought of this department is to give the broadest and most practical view of the field of physical science. To this end such a combination of qualitative and quantitative work is offered as will best develop skill in manipulation, accuracy of ob- servation, familiarity with funda- mental principles and their general practical applications. In a word, , it is the aim to give at once the best course for the student who goes directly into practical life, and to the one who goes to the university or technical school. Special stress is laid upon laboratory work, as there is nothing like literally ft having a hand in it " to give a student the enthusiasm so indispensable to the best results. The laboratories occupy six pleasant rooms on the third floor of the central building. They are well lighted, conveniently arranged and well equipped for work in both Chemistry and Physics. Four sets of the Crowell Physical Apparatus and the well arranged chemical desks make it possible for a large number of students to do individual work. The Professor has spent about all his spare time, including his vacations, making his department more attractive and adding to it apparatus, which make it possible for the students in that line of work to have the very best opportunity possible, so far as apparatus is concerned, for doing excellent work. This de- partment is one of the most attractive in the State. The work is so thoroughly done that Franklin's students who have taken advanced work in the universities stand at the head of their classes. Melvin Elliott Crowell has been at the head of this department for the past few years, and in that time he has completely revolutionized this department, both in its appearance and the quality of work done. Never was Franklin in better shape to offer to the young people of our State the very best in Chemistry and Physics. A large part of this is due to the untiring efforts of the Professor. Professor Crowell is a graduate of University of Rochester, N. Y. In 1885-86 he was an honorary scholar of John Hopkins University. Because of high scholarship he was one of the few in his class to be elected to membership in the Phi Beta Kappa fraternity. ' Before coming to Franklin he had taught in several institutions, among which may be men- tioned : In 1879-85 he taught Greek and Science in Cook Academy, Havana, N. Y., Latin and Chem- istry, 1887-91, Lewis Academy, 1fVichita, Kan. He has had charge of the Science departments in Indi- anapolis High School, Medical College of Indiana, and of our own college. He has mastered his sub- ject and knows how to teach it. Modern Languages EALIZING how absolutely necessary a knowledge of French and German is to the thorough study of chemistry and kindred sciences, those who arranged Franklin's Work have made ample provi- sion for the mastering of these two languages. They are no longer elective studies, but required in the course of each student. No student can receive a diploma Without having done at least one year's work in German or French. Attention is given first to enabling the student to acquire readiness in the translation of these lan- guages into idiomatic English. Secondary to this is the study of prose composition and conversation. The student in German is constantly urged to make careful study of the derivation and composition of words. German is made, as far as practicable, the language of the class room. The Work in this de- partment is equal to that in many of the larger schools and universities. Miss Jeanette Zeppenfeld, M. S., has had charge of the modern language Work in our college since 1890, and has continued the Work with much credit to herself and to the institution. Her acquaintance with the languages from her youth, and her constant study enables her not only to speak them fluently, but also to teach them correctly. Professor Zeppenfeld was graduated from Franklin College in the spring of 1890. She had some expe- rience in teaching before finishing her Work in the college, thus enabling her to be perfectly at home in the class room as the Professor. During the summer of 1890 she studied under a native French teacher in Indianapolis. She continued her studies in Ger- man, French and Italian at the Sauveur School of Languages, in Exeter, New Hampshire. ln 1895, Professor Zeppenfeld studied in Paris. Still desirous of thoroughly mastering the languages of her depart- ment, she is spending this year in the University of Heidelberg, at Heidelberg, Germany. During the absence of Professor Zeppenfeld, the work has been under the care of Miss Lillian 'Weyl. She was graduated from Franklin College with the degree of A. B., in 1894. Since then she has been teaching in the public schools of Indianapolis. She is a member of the Pi Beta Phi fraternity, and although out of the college as a student, still takes an actiye interest in the local organization. Miss YVeyl has proyen herself to be an excellent teacher in German and French. Those who have had the privilege of being in these classes this year will always remember her as a thorough teacher and Wish her the very best success possible, wherever she may go. .1 ' ,,, . .

LILLIAN WEYL Greefi and Latin LTHOUGH all will not admit that a thorough knowledge of Greek and Latin is necessary for a man to face the problems of life, few dare deny that a study of these subjects is one of the best dis- ciplines for the mind in all the college course. That student who spends three years wrestling with these languages and fails to feel the power of thought and to see the beauties in literature, could never understand the power and beauty of our own language. WVhere can you ind more majestic simplicity than that in Homer and Virgil? Wliere can you ind the truer spirit of oratory if not in Cicero and Demosthenes? Let the Latin and the Greek teach us the charms of the drama. These are the most beautiful languages of all time. At the head of the Greek department stands Columbus H. Hall, A. M., D. D. His early educa- tion was obtained near his home in Chili, Miami County, Ind., and in the High School at Peru. Professor Hall spent nearly four years in Franklin College, and would have graduated if the college had not been suspended in the year of 1872. He at once, with his fellow classmates, entered the University of Chicago, from which he was graduated at the close of the following year. In 1875 he was graduated from the Union Theological Seminary of Chicago. He spent some time preaching, but felt a call to give up the desire of his life when in 1875 the way was opened for him to become a teacher in the college. Professor Hall has always been a very enthusiastic teacher, and has the ability to draw from a student the very best he has in him. He is one of the hardest working students in the institution. One of his determinations is that no one shall work harder than himself. He is a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. , The Greek course offers to the student an oppor- tunity for mastering the subject. Francis NY. Brown, A. M., Ph. D., has charge of the Latin work. Professor Brown is one of the great men of today who earned his way by improving the spare moments. 'While a clerk in one of the leading stores of Seymour, he pursued his study of Latin, German and Greek during his spare hours. He came to Franklin College in 1858, and remained till the college suspended work at the beginning of the war. Since the war, Professor Brown has been teaching in some of our best institutions of learning. He has been president of two important schools, and in both places did much to advance the interests of education. He has been a teacher in Franklin Col- lege for nearly twenty-ive years. In that time he has ever proven himself a thorough teacher. Few students leave his department without having learned to love the God whom Professor Brown serves so faithfully.

HALL English Department HE aim of this department is two-fold. First, to give a student the principles which will enable him to express, correctly, his thoughts in both Writing and speaking. Second, to bring him in touch with the best English authors and their pro- ductions. The student is required to write themes and to study, critically, portions of the best litera- ture. Lectures are given in the class room by the professor. Special work is given for library study. All these methods are used to make the student see and appreciate the beauties in our own language. This department is very strong because the pro- fessor has mastered the subject and teaches it in such a way that "to be thorough" soon becomes the desire of each student in his classes. Rev. E. S. Gardiner has been at the head of this department for five years. In that time he has developed, in all the students, a love for good Eng- lish. He has done his best to make Franklin's English department as strong as any other in the State. It is true that this aim has not been reached. Still great advancement has been made as a result of Professor Gardiner's work. Professor Gardiner is a descendant of sturdy New England stock. His father was a man of strong convictions and so thoroughly pious that early in life his children were made to think about religion. His mother was a motherly New Englander who knew how to keep her boy in the "straight and narrow way." He received his first degree from Colgate University, after four years of hard work. Two years were spent in Crozier Seminary. After this he entered upon the work of the ministry. As a min- ister he was true to the trust the Master gave him and was used for the glory of God. He is a man of great intellectual power and broad experience. This enables him to be a thorough teacher. He is a man of strong Christian character. Professor Gardiner has had charge of the library for the last year and is improving, in many ways, this important part of our college. The library has grown so rapidly that it has been atburdensome task for a professor to manage it aside from his other duties, especially when his department requires him to correct so many papers. Nevertheless, Professor Gardiner has proven himself an excellent librarian and never complains about being overworked. As a member of the gymnasium committee, he has done some good work for the gymnasium. PROF. E. S. GARDINER Department T is the aim of this department to give the student a comprehensive view of the great movements in the worldls history, and to arouse a desire for further investigation. ln order to settle present problems, it is necessary to have a knowledge of past experience. So to understand past events that we may apply their principles to the problems of today, to get a true sense of proportion, to have a broad sympathy growing out of broad understanding, this is the purpose of the true student of history. The method of study can only be acquired by an emphasis upon movements not mere events, by careful reading and discriminating use of original material, and by constant outlining of the matter under discussion. The libraries of the college are well supplied with the material for investigation, the government docu- ments being especially valuable for the students of political science, and the Freeman Library contain- ing the best books of reference. The improvements contemplated in the department, such as cataloguing the library, purchasing new books and beautifying the room will tend to increase the interest of the students in this work. The chair of History has been filled during the past year by Arthur Eugene Bestor, a gradutte of the University of Chicago. Professor Bestor was of History born in Dixon, Illinois. He spent one year in Beloit College Academy at Beloit, Xlfisconsin, and four years at Vtfayland Academy, Beaver Dam, YX'isconsin. He took the highest honors of his class, which entitled him, upon graduation, to the Colby Scholar- ship, yielding three years' tuition in the University of Chicago. Here, in 1901, he took his A. B. degree and secured such high rank that he was one of the fifteen from his class of two hundred and ten to be elected to membership in the Phi Beta Kappa fraternity. His scholarship and standing in the university were recognized in many ways. He was elected to the presidency of the Senior Class, was leader of the Michigan and Columbia Debating teams: repre- sented the university in the Northern Gratorical League at Oberlin in lSElSl, where he won second place 5 was one of the editors of The Cap and Gown in l.90U, and at the Decennial Celebration of the university last spring gave the address in behalf of the students and alunmi. He is a member of the Delta Upsilon fraternity. Professor Bestor has the enthusiastic admiration and respect of all the students, and his influence as a teacher is doing much to strengthen and advance the interests of the college. PROF. A. E, BESTOR Department of usic O department of the college calls forth more activity of the mental faculties of the student than does the work required of our music students. Attention, concentration and comprehension are as essential in acquiring a musical education as in the study of literature, languages, mathematics or science. It is the aim of our instructor, in the training of students of music, to inspire them to a high standard of Work and to give them a broad foundation in their course of study. Besides the individual work given, class and public recitals are given frequently for the purpose of securing conndence and ease in playing before others. Franklinls music department offers to the student, who Wishes to make a thorough study of the subject, as good work as can be found in any of the smaller institutions of learning. The depart- ment is making some great strides to the front, and should this ff pushing forward " continue, it would be safe to imagine, at least, that some day the cry will be not only for a fire-proof library building and gymnasium, but for a music building as well. Mrs. Minnie Bruner has had charge of this depart- ment since the leaving of Professor Parker. Mrs. Bruner is the daughter of Professor Brown, and was born in Jackson County, Ind., in 1864. Her early education was obtained in the public schools of Cin- cinnati. Chio. At the age of nine she began her musical education, and has been taking work in that line, either in college or from some noted teacher, ever since. Mrs. Bruner deserves a great deal of credit for the work done in the music department. She has been untiring in her efforts to bring our work in music up to a very high standard. Professor Bruner has been connected with the music depart- ment since 1896. Miss Ella lYaggener has been assisting Mrs. Bruner in this department during the past year. Miss 'Waggener is a graduate of Franklin and, like the Professor, has been doing some special work in Indianapolis ever since. Wfhen you visit the college, just step past Secre- tary Carr's office, and listen for a moment. You will soon know exactly where to find our music department. MRS.

Among the eighty ministers, we will mention T. J. Morgan, whose great work in life is too well known to be dwelt upon here, C. M. Carter, of Muncie, Indiana, E. A. Hanley, of Cleveland, Ohio, who has charge of a large church of which Rocke- feller is a member, and Manford Schuh, who is now studying in the University of Edinboro, Scotland. There are many other good and noble men who are to the foreign iields of literature. Mrs. Viola Ed- wards, H. A. Cuppy, Mrs. Elizabeth O. Cuppy and Bertha D. Knobe, are rapidly gaining the notice and praise which they have merited. Politically, we have cause to speak with pride of Senator Burton, of Kansas, and of Congressmen Gverstreet and Griffith, of Indiana. In the political ranks of Indiana we claim R. A. Brown, Clerk of the Supreme Court, Frank Martin, Assistant Aud- itor of State 3 C. F. Remy and Judge G. XY. Grubbs. From the seventy-seven teachers, we will mention J. WY Moncrief, of the Divinity School, University of Chicago, Chas. Curry, of the Department of Literature, State N ormalg Jeanette Zeppenfeld, our own Modern Language instructor, who this year is in Heidelberg University, Paul Monroe, Columbia University, A. R.

Neal, principal of the Franklin I-Iigh School, and Professors Hall, Gwen and President Stott, of Franklin. There are, of course, others of the three hundred and twenty-three grad- uates from our college, who are doing much for the benefit of mankind in their various departments of life. Lawyers, physicians and business men. Frank- lin College is well represented in these different lines. And we feel sure that all will join us in Tiny Tim's prayer, and say for the Alumni, " God bless us every one." It is a great pleasure that the Alumni Association, organized as early as 1855, brings us together at Commencement time, and not only this good does it do, but by its generous gifts financially, much ben- efit has come through it to the college. We feel sure that the readers will be interested in some letters and lines of greetings that some of the Alumni have been kind enough to send to The Blue and Gold. May the ideals of our Alma Mater be the guiding principles of our life. A. O. NEAL. I have a very warm affection for the college from which I graduated forty years ago. I recall with deepest interest the years I spent within its halls, and I am more and more sensible of the profound influence upon my subsequent life which those years have exerted. I have watched with the greatest pleasure the growth and development of the college under the able administration of my friend and class mate, President W. T. Stott. He has wrought a grand work, and one that will abide. With best wishes, I am Most sincerely, T. J. MORGAN. I give cordial greeting to each Alumnus of Frank- lin College who is now in the active walks of life. I presume each of you has found the responsibilities of life very different from that which you anticipated when you were in the youthful pursuit of learning as a student in the college. We remember those days as happy dreams. There was but little of care, and I fear yet smaller sense of responsibility. I think most of us would do things quite differently if we had it to do again. It may be that we have not often met, but in our dreams, and in memory's iiight we have again even walked the halls and greeted the faces of college days. But some of those faces will never again shed their radiance in the class room or hall on earth. They are the long absent ones. With these greetings, best wishes go for each and all. ROBERT ALLEN BROWN, Class of '84. Dear Afzvzuals I am indebted to you for this opportunity of saying a word to those who have been and are now students of Franklin College. Eleven years of hard work since graduation have only served to impress on my mind more firmly the value of the earnest work set before the student in the class rooms. For most of us the price to be paid for even the most moderate kind of success is hard and unremitting labor, and a college that opens our eyes a little to that fact is the best introduction to life. And this, I take it, is not the least of the contributions that Franklin College has made to those who have come under her influence. Very truly yours, i CHAS. M. CURRY. I am sure I speak but the feeling of the host of Franklin's Alumni when I say that I regard my years at the old college the best and most profitable of my life. Her teachings are a bulwark to one's Christian faith. They withstand the sometimes try- ing tests that ind the unwary toiler without other support. Yours most sincerely, C. R. PARKER. The fittest greeting' which I can make to the Annual is the wish that it may not only be a true representative of the Franklin College which was and is, but that it may also be the prophet of the Franklin College which must be, if it is to be at all. AUG. RAYRIOND HATTON. Dear A1z1zzmZ.- I am glad to learn that you are coming again, and to send this little greeting to meet you on the way. I look forward to your arrival with much interest, confident that you will bring a good and full report of another College year. The memories of other days come trooping in, of days when Annuals were not known and when oppor- tunities were not so numerous or so excellent as in these latter days. And yet they are days carefully and fondly cherished, and the recalling of them makes me appreciate anew my old College, who did the best she could for me, and that is more than I can express. Tell the boys and girls to remain loyal, faithful and true to our Alma Mater, because with advancing years they will appreciate her more and more. J. YV. MONCRIEF. The following is taken from a letter written by Miss Zeppenfeld, Heidelberg University, Germany: Heidelberg is a city of about 30,000 inhabitants. It lies on the south side of the Neckar River, and as the river here flows through a deep, narrow valley between high mountains, the city is very long and in some parts very narrow. At the extreme east end there is room for but one street, the railroad, and one row of houses built up against the mountain, back of the east end of the city tower are the ruins of Heidelberg Castle, once the proudest of Germanyls castles, and now her most magnificent ruin. It was sacked, burned and blown up by the French in 1688. One of the towers, an hexagonal one, still has its winding stone stairway intact. The view from the top is most beautiful. Two other towers can be ascended, but most of the way by wooden stairways, as the stone ones were blown up. One of these- with walls 21 feet thick-was rent by the explosion into two almost equal parts, and the detached part still lies in one piece in the moat below. An intri- cate mass of subterranean passages connects the numerous towers. One of the palaces is still in a habitable condition and contains the museum. The servants, quarters are also in good condition and are occupied by the custodians. Although the outer walls are plain, those facing the inner court are beautifully carved. An immense parapetted terrace facing the river is also preserved. The castle must have been immense, for one day we spent several hours walking and were constantly stumbling upon under- ground passages, winding stone stairways coming up out of the ground parts of ruined rooms and bits of wall. The entire castle and all of its walls were built of the red sand-stone which is found all about here. The grounds and much of the walls are cov- ered with ivy. In the cellar is an immense wine tun, capable of holding 49,000 gallons. In the old east end of the city all the streets but one are very narrow, some only six feet wide with no sidewalks, and the houses built right up to the street. The houses that have yards have them in the form of an inner court, or in some other invisible style, But the newer west end has broad, well laid-out streets with handsome residences and beautiful gardens, though again the gardens are screened from view by stone walls or shrubbery. The people would not understand the publicity of Franklin's private yards. There are several fine churches, the university church is especially beautiful because of its open work Gothic tower and the beautifully traced carv- ings everywhere, the churches are all of the same red stone as the castle. The university is a great square three-story, barnlike building of stone cov- ered with dark gray plaster. The halls and stair- ways are large and fine-of course of stone-and are better than some modern ones, but most of the lec- ture, rooms are small, and the benches must be the ones put in at the founding in 1836, as they are long, narrow, unvarnished slabs of wood on four pegs, desks of the same style, with an under slab for books, and all adorned with autographs of genera- tions. The library is in a separate building. Then there is another building for the various Seminars. All the laboratories are in separate buildings in the newer part of the city. Two bridges cross the Neckar and connect the city with its suburb Neun- heim. One is an ancient stone bridge, which, on the Heidelberg side, has a large turreted stone gateway. At the east end of the city a carved stone gateway of the early part of the eighteenth century, on the south side of the city is a gateway which is part of the very ancient fortifications. The mountains on both sides of the Neckar have well laid-out walks and drives leading to the top, and many a pleasant half day have we spent wandering over them. The scenery all about here is exceptionally beau- tiful, and I long to see it when everything is covered with snow. I am enjoying my university work very much, though some of it, the Old German and Middle German is rather tough. The university usually has about 1,000 students in all departments. I think there are but twelve women in the university-two Americans besides me, one Scotchwoinan, the others are Germans. Last sunnner stringent regulations were adopted with reference to the length of time women must study here before they will be granted a Ph. D. Several days ago I saw a student-a fraternity man -put in the " Carcer,'l the University prison cell. He had H guyed I' a policeman, I think 3 the university police sentenced him to three days imprisonment. His fraternity brothers in full uniform escorted him thither-he in full uniform also. He lay on his feather bed, pillows, and blankets, for all prisoners must supply bedding. Two fraternity brothers walked beside his open carriage and held the ends of a tiny cord which was a burlesque on manacles. Ahead of his carriage were two fraternity brothers mounted on white horses. There were three other carriages containing fraternity brothers. They car- ried the prisoner up stairs to the H Career 3 " the coach- man ostentatiously put one-half dozen bottles of wine in one of the pillows twine is strictly forbidden in the Carcerb, picked up the bedding, six boxes of cigars, six novels and followed up to the cell. XfVhen the boys had entered the carriages they drank his health in mugs of beer, called "Auf wiedersehenf' and departed. 'ini -in -an Ln, C R. PARKER T. J. MORGAN CI-IAS. BI. CURRY I XV. MONCRIEF A R. HATTON PAUL MONROE JESSE OVERSTREET FRANK MARTIN F. M. GRIFFITH A T 0 fha Bfzze amz' Gold .' I esteem it an honor to be invited to contribute this letter to your edition of 1902 and a pleas- ure to tell you some- thing of L' bonnie auld Scotia." Of course Edinburg is the center of it all. "Eida! Scotia's darling seat ! All hail thy palaces and towers! " Guarded about with U Holy Hills " to the south and east Where the shepherd keeps watch by day and the stars by night, her feet dipping in the surf of the Firth of Forth this old Queen of the North rears her head defying time and fortune, and rests her maternal eye upon the great high land to north and west. She contemplates them with keenest satisfaction and pride, and Well she may. From the storm-beaten cottages that crouch beneath yon towering bens 5 from beside the rushing torrents, the quiet lake, heather, bracken and moor, from the Wild forest with prone body clinging to the giant hills and stretching her hands and fingers out against the rocks, from such surroundings as these have sprung a sturdy, tenacious people 5 a religion also they firmly knit with fibre of soul and conscience that will stand in judgment against her children, the religion of Ian MacLaren's Bumbrae who could not even H stretch a point for auld lang syne," and patriotism, too, these sombre hills have cradled. YVhere do you find a better brand than here? Wliere nobler sentiments of national loyalty and devotion than cluster about the names of a WVallace or a Gordon? The task of the Edinburg of today is full of difh- culties. She must honor, aye, and cling to a noble past as well as respond to the duties and opportunities of the present. She is bound by a hundred sacred cords to the centuries agone. The old castle, long since relegated to antiquity, still persists in her intrusion on modernity with her story of petty triumphs, all unconscious that her day is spent. And then there's the palace at Holyrood " Where Scotia's kings of other years, Famed heroes, had their royal home," Now she doesn't seem to quite understand she is no longer needed, except for curious globe trotters to stare at, and so she goes on singing of knight-hood courtesy, of love and war. The university too, an institution of history, with history writ large. She is mighty in the classics and still troubling her hoary head with those naughty problems of metaphysics which most of us today so enthusiastically pass by, casting only a half reproach- ful, half pitying glance. But is not all this well? Yes, that's the trouble. There is little chance for anything better. New problems must be met with old antiquated ideas, customs and precedents. It doesn't improve things to sew a new patch on an old garment. So if you can't discard the garment you must endure the rent, now the choice this city is often compelled to make is between the rent and the patch-neither very pleasant to contemplate, think you? Sometime she chooses the one sometimes the other. The American Consul, who by the way is a loyal Hoosier, hailing from Lafayette, tells me the university contemplates a department of commerce, but he adds 4' it wouldnlt do, it would be out of place" and so it would seem with many other lines of investi- gation that occupy a conspicuous place in the Ameri- can universities. But withal 4' Edina" is a most interesting, beautiful and hospitable city. Her " Antiquated buildings climbing high Whose Gothic frontlets seek the sky " are all noble and inspiring. Her numerous terraces, crescents and gardens, private and public, fit one's heart with naturels sweetest ointment. 'I-Ier splendid culture worn so gracefully makes a pilgrim Hoosier's countenance radiant with admiration. I am willing to let Scott have his way and U still as of yore U I salute her ff Queen of the North." Witli love, which grows stronger with years, for 1ny Alma Mater, I remain her humble servant, MANFORD W. SCHUH, l96. Ko? CCOD PROP, A o. NEAL Alumni A ssociation Prof. A. O. Neal, Presidezzl .

History of Senior Class EVER, no never-go back, if you will, to the time when Dr. Stott entered college as a Junior Prep-could you ind a class so ingenious, so intelligent, so bright, aye, brilliant, in plain lan- guage, so smart as this class of 1902. A grand spectacular exhibition of class spirit and enterprise marked the entrance of the class upon its college career. VVho does not know about the famous flag-pole and the class scrap in 1898? Future generations coming to college will de- light in recounting the stirring things done that day. They will tell how the sturdy Freshmen went into the forest, cut down a tall, graceful poplar, loaded it upon a large wagon, bore it to the outskirts of the city and left it there until darkness came, and while the Sophs were snoozing on their downy beds, the Freshmen, after U painting the town red,'l pro- cured their pole, raised it on the campus and placed upon it a banner of crimson and white bearing the mystic figures 702. They will tell how other things were doomed that night to bear '02, the standpipe, sidewalks, smokestacks, trees, fences and even pug dogs. With quick beating hearts they will tell how the Freshmen proudly guarded their treasure, and when our men were drawn 'from their post of duty to watch a football game, how a low, sneaking, cowardly Sophomore, who did not have courage to light his way to the pole, slipped to it and with the aid of climbers was soon out of reach of the Fresh- men who were hot on his track. Wlien near the top he took from his pocket a saw and began his cow- ardly work. The Freshmen made frantic efforts to dislodge him. Meanwhile the Soph, in spite of the fact that the president was commanding him to desist and come down, sawed on. The top of the pole tottered and then the flag dropped to the mad crowd below. 'C People of the north end, I appeal to you,l' came from the man on the pole, and all the coons and white trash of the town made a grand rush for the Hag. In an instant it was torn in a thousand pieces, but the Freshmen got their share. They lost their flag, it is true, but they crowned themselves with glory, and won for themselves fame everlasting. During our Sophomore year we rested on our laurels, and not until we were Juniors did we make our presence felt. By this time our iutellects had developed greatly and before the year was completed we felt that even now we were beyond the work required in the Senior year. So we requested new text books-books worthy of us. This is the history of our attempts to make the college an up-to-date institution. We struggled hard, but the time was not yet ripe for much reform. 'We make one more effort to lift higher the standard of the college ere we sever our connection with it. During commencement week we give the Class Play. In conception it surpasses the greatest achievements of the human mind 5 in presentation it is equaled by few, excelled by none. Its splendor will reflect on the college for years to come, and the class of 1902 will not soon be forgotten. GRACE DRYBREAD, Historian. Senior Class 1.

History The present junior Class was organized as a band of freshman in 'HSL Lil-ze nearly every preceding class it felt the necessity of class organization, therefore a meeting was called very early in the year and plans were soon laid. We feel that our class is not so noted for sudden spurts and flashes as for steady, solid work g and, indeed, we hope there is not a single ineinber in our ranks who hopes to win his success by any means other than labor. This year we have undertaken the publication of " The Blue and Gold," and let us hope that every member is putting forth his very best efforts to make the book a just and thorough representative of our college, and when we leave you one year hence, believe us, you, all of you shall have our highest regard and truest loyalty.

Chaplain The Periclesian Literary Society was founded on January 11, 1853, for the purpose of pro- moting the intellectual and social culture of its members. From the date of its organization it has continued to prosper, and now enjoys the reputa- tion of being the oldest society in college. Many of Franklin's most prominent Alumni received their literary training in this society, among whom were Congressman YV. S. Holman and Marion Griflithg Hon. I. R. Burton, United States Senator from Kansas, Hon. C. M. Lambertson, ex-assistant United States Treasurer, Gen. T. I. Morgan, ex-commissioner of Indian Affairs, and R. A. Brown, clerk of Indiana Supreme Court. That the high standard of literary excellence held by such men as these is still maintained, is evinced by the fact that for the last nine years Franklin's representative at the State Oratorical Contest have been chosen from among the followers of Pericles. The two gentle- men who have represented Franklin in her inter-collegiate debates for the last two years also received their training in this society. The present year has been a very prosperous one. A number of new members have been received, the society now enrolling thirty-seven active members.

It was on December 3, of 1900, that a small body of students, having conceived the need of another society in our institution, gathered in the English Room to found the Ofer Gan Literary Society. The following persons are named as its charter members: H. B. Benninghoff, W. A. Bur- ton, W. T. Stout, C. A. Smalley, VV. G. Everson, J. R. Voris, C. E. Fisher, Sallie Ellis, Ethel F. Mc- Collough, Mary G. Hall and Gladys D. Miller. These persons who subscribed their names to the scroll and its pledge were largely constituents of the Periclesian Society, although both the Independents and Webster Society had their representatives among them. The primary purpose of the founders was to provide a means to rigorous literary training. The name Ofer Gan is of Anglo-Saxon derivation, meaning Hto overcome." The principle on which the society increases its numbers, and the basis on which it proceeds, is manifest in Article IV, Section 2, of its Constitution, which states: f'Active mem- bers must be students of Franklin College having at least three college credits and must be chosen from the one-fourth having the highest average stand- ing in scholarship, as indicated by term grades." Besides these qualifications, the intrant must be ac- cepted by the unanimous vote of the organization. Wfith these restrictions for admission, and its number of active membership constitutionally limited to twenty-five, it has come to be considered in the Col- lege as not only a society of high literarjv merit, but of especial honor as Well. From the time of its initial meeting of Tuesday night, January 8, 1901, presided over by its first Chancellor, H. B. Benninghoff, until the present, the prosperity of the Ofer Gan Society has never waned. The quality of the literary duties as performed by its members has materially shown their loyalty to the pledge they have taken. One of the enjoyable and special events of the current year was the celebration of the society's irst anniversary. On this occasion Prof. VV. D. Howe, of Butler College, delivered an address. .qx -- -f ' 1 '4'- 1 - 1' ' -- 1'f- 1 - ff' W' 1 MM- 1'-if H J---,. -- A, 7,7 YY-7 ...... , -Y A,-Y .- Af 1!N -, g .iA - , -, ,f-,Y YY , - - Y , -...f: -- ,Y Y , 5- -- , IIg'1 - -4 -- ,Z-, 1? -. 71- ,- 'QF' 1 1,11--V ,D V ---H35 ,-A , II II 1 I! 1I I 1 I I X ,.

Josephine Franklin, with a party of friends, was staying at a little village near Coblentz on the Rhine. On this particular night there was to be a concert at a small town a few miles above Coblentz and a river steamer was to leave at seven and return after the concert. Josephine and a friend failing to persuade their chaperone to accompany them decided that they alone would take the little trip, hoping to see a new phase of German life. The girls were delighted with the moonlit views of the castled banks of the Rhine. Everything seemed to take on a charm and even the advertise- ment of Quaker Oats which graces one picturesque spot appealed to them in a new way, and with a common impulse they began to hum softly U Amer- ica." All the while they were unconscious that a handsome German with a distinguished military bearing was standing a short distance from them and watching them intently. Suddenly the German band on board struck up an unfamiliar air that was not just in keeping with the mood of the girls at the time. U I wish they would play fDie Wacht am Rhein,' " said Josephine, 'K I wonder if I could make anyone understand," she added, looking around as she spoke. At this the military gentleman stepped forward and clicking his heels together made a profound bow, saying: " Bitte, fraulein, I a little English speak. May I you to help? 'l Then she explained her wish, at the same time thanking the stranger for his courtesy. I-Ie at once called a servant, feed him generously, and sent him to the Herr Director with a request for the desired selection. Then while it was beauti- fully rendered the gentleman quietly seated himself beside the girls and when it was ended did not offer to leave but introduced himself to the American Damen as Gustave VVeller. The girls were visibly embarassed and thinking perhaps his attention might be a piece of unheard-of German gallantry they thought to relieve him by suggesting that he might enjoy himself better with his friends. " Ach, no!" he said, Hmany men like much wine to drink. Me like a little flirtfi The girls opened their eyes in astonishment but he added, 'C I know we should be acknowledged, but we have no one to do it. We cannot help it, it must be so," and he smiled amiably, but the girls had difficulty in sup- pressing a laugh when it dawned upon them that by H acknowledged " he meant U introduced. 3' Apologizing for his broken English he proceeded to entertain the young ladies, first by telling them without hesitancy that he was quite familiar with their names, having examined their mail before their arrival at the hotel and having watched them since that time. Not noticing their surprised looks he continued, U When I found you were going on this trip tonight I bought a ticket so that I might be with you." His frankness was almost appalling, but so un- usual that the girls were charmed in spite of them- selves. No effort did I-Ierr Weller spare in entertaining his new-made acquaintances, from conversing in his best English to offering them wine and beer as re- freshments. 'C The words to me come so slow,', he would say, and then would knit his brows in a per- plexed way that delighted the girls. "We think you do wonderfully well," they said 5 U you remem- ber very many words." U I cannot help it," he replied candidly, 'f it is my' talent." When asked from what part of the " States t ie girls came and they said ff Indiana," he exclaimed, " Oh, you often see the Indians, perhaps? " U Yes, every dayf' they replied demurely. 'f Your country is very unlike ours," he said. U You are so many millionaires. You have no mid- dle class. You are much rich or much little." " Oh, nof, cried Josephine, who never missed an opportunity of airing her democratic views. U Our middle class is our strong class. Our middle class controls our country." 73 1 "I think you not understand our classes," he said. " Now, if a man had 300,000 marks and three children, would you call him rich or poor? ff I should call him rich in this world's goods and love and affection,l' laughed Josephine, but I-Ierr Weller only looked more puzzled. Q . In speaking of an entertainment he had seen a short time before, he said, 4' I saw the best joke on a bicycle," meaning U trick? These and similar ex- pressions kept the girls laughing and very much interested, especially Josephine, who soon felt she was the cause of the attentions. I-Iowever, when the evening was ended she thought the whole affair merely an interesting episode which it would be fun to tell when she went home. Imagine, then, her surprise when the next morn- ing she received a basket of beautiful roses with a brief note which simply read: 'L Dear Madame, I remember with pleasure the happy hours spent in your company." At lunch came a note asking her to go to a castle across the river. After some hesita- tion she accepted, and with her companion she went into the Biergarten where Gustave joined them with a friend. From there a few minutes on the steamer brought them to the opposite shore, where mounting patient donkeys they made the ascent to the castle. Gus- tave rode close behind Josephine and she was de- lighted with the prospect of the whole afternoon with him. U What could be more romantic?" 77 thought she. H Such beautiful surroundings Il' Rising on the height before them stood the gray old castle which had once been offered as a gift to Queen Victoria and which is still occasionally visited by members of the royal family of Germany. Back of them the dreamy Rhine lazily moving .along as if basking in the sunshine. Beyond, Coblentz and the bridge of boats. In the distance many little villages, dotting the vine-covered terraces. Truly, this was an experience not to be despised. After spending a few hours examining the treas- ures of the old castle and enjoying the ine views, they then began making the descent. Gustave was rather silent, but once Josephine heard him say softly, as if to himself, " Ich Weiss nicht was soll es bedeuten, Dass ich so traurig bin, Ein rnarchen aus alten zeiten Dass kommt mir nicht aus dem Sinn." But when she looked at him inquiringly he only hxed his eyes upon her golden hair and sighed. The next morning a heavy rain kept all indoors. Josephine was too restless to write letters and could find nothing English to read, so she wandered aim- lessly about until suddenly Gustave stood before her and in a strange voice asked her to go to the draw- ingroom. As soon as they reached the room he said: "This morning has a telegram to me come. I must go to Cologne today, and soon I must leave for China. Ach! I fear I may never see thee more. I must tell you that I love you. It is very rapid to speak so, but I cannot help it. Wlieii I return from China may I find my bride in America? Tell me that you will be mine own, Geliebtef' Josephine was pained and surprised beyond words, but she could do nothing but tell him as gently as possible that she knew him too little to care for him, but that she would write to him if he wished it, at the same time assuring him of her sincere interest in him. That evening Gustave invited J osephine's party to come to the Biergarten and meet some of his friends who would spend this last evening with him. There with true German hospitality he gave his guests fruit and kuchen to eat. And with peaches and white wine he prepared the U bowle,'l a nectar fit for the gods. Raising his first glass to his lips he bowed to all, and then, fixing his eyes on Josephine, proposed a toast to the growth of friendly relations between America and Germany 5 to anvincrease of business between the countries, a safe home-arrival for his friends, and a return visit to Germany, his own Vaterland. Josephine could not miss the signihcance of his words and her face crimsoned under his gaze, but during the whole evening his words to her were entirely impersonal. The next day he left the hotel and by return mail she received a letter, later a telegram and two more letters, but not one word of love. Yet she admired him all the more because he did not beg for what she could not give. But she found herself wishing she might see more of him, comparing him with other men of her ac- quaintance, and she discovered her admiration for his simple honesty and candor ever O11 the increase. Three days later her party took a Rhine steamer for Cologne, where they arrived in a few hours. By this time Josephine was strangely depressed, but why she could not tell and she begged her friend to go to the cathedral to spend an hour with her. For a while the girls walked up and down the nave admiring the grand old building and then the rich tones of the organ poured forth and the services began. Josephine kneeled where she had stood and bowed her face in her hands. Kneeling thus she was unconscious of everything but the beautiful strains of music, when, Without warning, someone touched her shoulder and she turned to look in the eyes of Gustave lNeller, who stood beside her. U I met your friends at the Hotel du Nord. They told me I should find you here. I could not go With- out seeing you again." At that she dropped her eyes, for an indescribable feeling came over her. But therewas no staying his speech. 4'Ach, mein liebes Kind, can you not a little love me? May I not come to America in one year?,' 4' Yes," she faltered, and they left the church together. In one hour the train left which bore him to Hamburg. She stood in the door of the Wartesaal until his waving cap disappeared, and then she saw him no more. But the letters came and went after Josephine's return to an American college. At Christmas time there came a box of beautiful Chinese curios. After that no letters cameg Josephine looked and waited and wondered. Slowly the months have passed and still no message has come. As the end of the year draws near the ever-present question in the mind of Josephine shapes itself thus: H Shall I hear from him again? IfVill he come in June? Gr Was it merely a summer episode? I' ' v 'V V By the Camp Fire HERE was rejoicing in the camp of the Pottowa- tomies. The warriors had returned from the hunt and great had been the killing. That night a feast was held. On the high bluff above the lake signal fires were lit, telling all the tribe of the coming council and feast to be held on the shore below. As the full moon peeped above the horizon it saw the canoes stealing across the silvery waters of the lake toward the blazing camp-fires on the shores. It saw the wrinkled old squaws stirring the crushed maize or turning the meat browning before the fire. It looked boldly down on the Indian maiden as she shyly watched some stalwart son of the forest as he lolled at ease before the ire. . Seated in a long double row, facing each other, with wooden bowls placed before them, the Indians fully satisfied their hunger. There was plenty that night, enough, even, for the squaws and children. Then in a circle around the fire they held their coun- cil. After they had passed around the pipe of peace in silence, their chief rose to his feet. In a speech full of eloquence and pathos he told of the coming of the paleface and of the command of the Great White Chief that the red man must go 5 that they must seek a new hunting ground in the far West. Then the medicine man, with painted face and curious dress, stepped into the circle, and, as he slowly swayed from side to side, weirdly chanted of the wrongs the white man had done them and demanded revenge. As if inspired by his words, one after another of the braves sprang to their feet and declared that the land was theirs 3 that they must not leave the hunting grounds they had known so long. Par into the night the council held, but finally the wisdom of their chief prevailed and they resolved to go peacefully. It was with sorrow that this, their last council, was ended. The slowly dying embers of the camp-fire were covered with ashes and the Indians had gone to rest. All was quiet. On a rock jutting out from the base of the cliff sat Laughing Eyes, the great chiefls daughter. Near her patiently stood a young brave. As the moon began to wane he broke forth into a low, plaintive melody-his love song to the maiden beside him. The song ceased. There was silence. Then Laughing Eyes ran quickly to her fatherls wig- warn. I-Ie was satisfied 3 she had listened to his song. 4: is 51 '33 6? AL is Many, many moons has passed. Again the moon rose above the horizon to see a great camp-fire built against the same cliff used by the Indians so long ago. Merry voices were heard hailing the sailboat, grace- fully skimming over the shimmering waters of the lake to the shore. H You'll have to hurry. Are you all there? Fudge can't wait much longerf, Amidst laughing, talking and the clatter of skillets and spoons, the party on board finally landed. A "Howls this for an impromptu chafing dish?'l laughed Kate, as she waved a long-handled skillet in the air. On coals raked from the fire improvised chaf- ing dishes were placed. In some they made fudge, while in others a wonderful Welsli rarebit was con- cocted, flavored with ashes, smoke and a little sand added by the irrepressible crowd. The ruling spirit was Kate, with wavy, black hair blown about her face and sparkling dark eyes. The flash of the red in her golf cape, worn wrong side out, was seen everywhere. Seated around the dying fire, they dined, told stories of college pranks and sang fraternity songs until their stock of fun was almost exhausted. ' The fact that this was their last evening together added a touch of sadness hard to drive away. Finally one of the boys turned to Paul, the quiet one of the party, and said, 4' Here, old fellow, give us some of those Indian tales you have heard from that man across the lake. 3' Al- though Paul wished to refuse, they insisted so much that he finally began, after a hurried glance at Kate, which made her cheeks redden in the firelight. In low tones, which gradually became eloquent as he put himself into his story, he told of the last feast held by the Pottawatomies so many years ago beneath the same cliff that looked down on them. He told of the bravery of the great chief, of the songs sung by the medicine rnan and finally of the wooing of Laughing Eyes, as she sat on the Lover's Rock. "It is the same on which you are sitting, Kate," he said significantly, as he ended. For the rest of the even- ing Kate openly avoided Paul and once cruelly taunted him as U Paul the Silentf' At last the party broke up and all left but Paul. As he turned to go he heard, 4' Oh, wait just a min- ute, Paul." The fire-Hy was suddenly changed to a drooping little figure, wrapped in a golf cape. U Ilm sorry for anything I said," she murmured, as she sat down on Lover's Rock nearby, 'C but you ought to talk more, you know so many more things than they know. They don't half appreciate you.', H I know it," he burst out vehemently, "but I have tried so hard to overcome it, and' '-he suddenly knelt on the sands at her feet-U I'rn more than sorry, because I cannot tell my love for you. Little sweetheart, I can not keep it any longer, I have loved you for so long. Could you-would you- learn sometime to love me just a little? " He buried his face in the corner of her cape. U Oh, Paul! I didnlt know-I never 'thought- I can't-can't tell you tonight, but"- Suddenly an arm was thrown about his neck, a face touched his for an instant, then with a little cry she was gone. He was satisfied 5 she had listened to his song. Quien Sabe ! UGH WORDEN led his horse within the rude gateway and, after replacing the bars, re- rnounted and rode slowly up the hill by a path that had been cut through the tropical forest. At the top of the hill he came to a little clearing in the center of which stood a hut made of logs and palm leaves. A man was moving about inside the hut and as he passed before the open doorway he paused and, shading his eyes from the setting sun, looked out at the traveler. Hugh had been told that the plantation belonged to an American. The man carrie forward to meet him and invited him to alight and enter, and Hugh was glad to meet a fellow-countryman in that far-off lonely part of Mexico. Holding his horse by the lasso he advanced to take the out-stretched hand, the hand faltered midway in its advance, but, sud- denly, a curious expression flashed over the face of the planter and he extended his arms with a gesture of gladness and welcome. As the traveler grasped the hand he peered closely into the bronzed, bewhiskered face. H Is it possible, you here, Harry Lacey? ll he said, in amazement. "Yes," replied the other, with some embarrass- ment, " I've left that all behind. l'n1 trying to be respectable now. They wouldnlt have let me there, you know." Hugh turned and looked longingly towards his horse that was being led away by a peon. U No," he thought, H I must stop here, to-night 5 my horse and I both need rest, and it is ten leagues, at least, to the next plantation." All that was human in him came to the surface then, the weakness of it, for it was grateful to him to meet some one who could speak his native tongue, and the strength,too, perhaps, the strength of liunian kindness. H For, perhaps," he reflected, f'Harry has found courage here in this wilderness to begin life anew." H You know," said Harry, with insistance, H you know how hard it would have been g you know that when a man is once down, there, it is impossible for him to hold up his head againfl The traveler followed the planter into the hut. He noted with curiously mixed emotions the coarse fare that was spread before him 5 the frijoles, tortillas and the tough fried U tasajo gl' and that the rough burlap sack from which his host had taken the coffee was covered thickly over with cobwebs. 'C This is the home of a man who once embezzled thirty thousand dollars and left for parts unknown ll' he mentally ejaculated. Some of these thoughts crept into the conversation as they sat after supper blowing the thin blue smoke of their cigarettes through the yellow flame of the tallow candle. U The money, you know, the woman got all of that. I was a fool," said Harry, suddenly. 'C But I suppose it was for the best. I still have this place, though it is not quite paid for yet. But I will have coffee this year," he added, brightening. U Hope I'll have two pounds to the tree, and I have nearly twenty thousand trees. Then I'll pay it all back. Yes, every cent of it. I'll save every year until I can pay it. I swear I will. It has been a hard pull, Hugh, but, thank God, I can see daylight now,'l he added, with a tacit plea for sympathy. Hugh VVorden was suddenly filled with shame as he realized that he had been drifting back into that old feeling of comradeship that had existed between them at the time when Harry Lacey was an honorable and trusted man. He was vexed that chance had brought him there, vexed that circumstances had made it possible for him to deliver his old chum into the hands of justice. He turned the drift of the conversation, and, shortly afterwards, rolled into his blankets. U Ilm glad I'm not a deputy sheriff," he thought, as he composed himself for sleep. As he mounted his horse on the following morning Harry came and stood beside him and lifted a plead- ing look to his face. H Youlll say nothing about me?" he asked anxiously. 4' I know you'll say nothing about me! I'm here, living the life of an honest man, I-Iugh. These great forests, this battle with nature, has made a new man of me. You'll not remember nieihere, Hugli?', The traveler shook his head slowly. ff' Ilm not an officer of the law,,' he said, and turned his horse and rode away. Wlieii he reached the edge of the clearing the planter called out to him. H I say, Hugh ll' he said, Hshould we meet again, you know, Ilm Harry Lathrop now. " Something in the tone with which this was spoken caused the traveler's lips to tighten. " He takes the change of name lightly,'l he mused, as he guided his horse to the brow of the hill. Hugh WVorden's mission to Mexico was fruitful, for the Chicago trading house of Mayes 8 VVinner established a branch house in Mexico with him as its manager. A couple of years afterwards, when Mr. WV inner was on one of his flying trips to Mexico, he sat in his private office talking over affairs with his representative. UI've found a good man for us, VX7orden,'l he said, suddenly. U Met him in Paris accidentally a few months ago, and met him again on the train coming down here. He is a man that has been worth considerable money at one time, too, had a fine coffee plantation, he claims, but killed the goose that laid the golden egg, so to speak 5 sold his plan- tation and spent the proceeds in reckless living. He speaks Spanish like a native and seems to be a hustler. Helll be a clipper to work that outside tradefl Mr. Wiiiiier was an iinpetuous, pushing Western trader and was always picking up 1' clippers," as he expressed it 5 so NVorden said nothing. That evening as Worden was walking down Plateros Street some one came up behind him and touched his arm. He turned and saw Harry Lacey standing beside him. 'L I'm here, Hugh," he said, with a nervous laugh. 4' Mr. YVinner has promised to employ me. He said he was only waiting to speak with you about it. Now, I say, old man l" he pleaded, noting the look on Wordeiiis face, 'fyoulll not deny me this chance! Qnly give me this one chance, Hugh! This one chance to prove to you that I am a different man now. I know what disgrace is now , I'1l prove it to you. I know how to profit by my lesson." As Hugh looked into the face of his old chum, bronzed no longer and with the luxuriant beard trimmed in a becoming manner, he thought that the handsome face looked far more rugged and firm than it did when Harry Lacey was a slender beardless youth in Chicago. He hesitated a moment. It meant a grave respon- sibility for him 5 but it seemed to him like an appeal to all that was good and manly in his nature. YVith him it rested to turn this unfortunate back to an honorable life. Yes, he would attempt the task that chance had given him to do. His vanity was a little iiattered, too, as he reflected that this Harry Lacey, whom he had admired and rather looked up to in those busy Chicago days, as an abler man than him- self, should sue him for place in the great world of respectability. U I'll believe youf' he said, simply, and continued on his way. H Yes," said 'Worden on the following day, as Harry left the office, U he's a hustler 3 but I suppose he will handle none of the cash." H Of coursef' replied his employer, 4' you must continue to attend to all collections." Three years later, when Mr. VVinner was again in Mexico City, lfVorden was busy getting the details of the business in shape to lay before him. Late at night he had occasion to go to the desk his employer used when in the city. A telegram lay spread out upon it. It was from Harry who was in Jalapa at- tending to the delivery of a train load of fine cattle. U Bank rate of exchange here exorbitant, customer wants to settle in Mexican currencyf' it ran. A sickening fear came over him as he read it. He ran to the copying book, Mr. VVinner had replied: 4' Accept Mexican currency at our current rate and return immediately. I' The fear grew almost to a certainty as he realized that the money was already in the hands of a man who had once betrayed his trust. He closed the desk hurriedly and ran over to the club. Mr. XVin- ner was not there. He went to his hotel, he stood on the threshold a moment irresolute. H No," he decided, I'll not tell him yet, it would do no good. I'll go myself and prevent it-if it is not already too late. I-Ie hunted up the chief clerk, left a few parting instructions and at daybreak took the train for Jalapa. Near to his destination the train was stopped by a bad washout. He procured a guide and climbed over the mountains to the next station, where he found a light engine starting for Jalapa. Upon arrival there he went to see the customer who had purchased the cattle, whom he found sitting in the courtyard of his town house. Hjust passing through and had to call and see my old friend," exclaimed VVorden, as he accepted the proffered cigarette. They talked awhile of the weather, the crops and the friends in Mexico City and Jalapa, in that easy deferential way so natural to Mexicans. H By the way, your clerk went home by the way of Veracruzf, remarked the host at length. I gave him the money all in bills instead of New York ex- change. These bankers here wanted an excessive rate. They were all thousand dollar bills, twenty- two of them, so the package is not bulky 3 but I ad- vised him to return by the way of Veracruz in order to avoid the confusion that is certain to exist at that washout up there. U YWorden thanked the customer for his thoughtful- ness and departed. Before noon on the following day he was in Vera- cruz. He searched the hotels. Harry Lathrop was not registered. He walked through the plaza, down to the water front and out on the fiscal pier, There, at the farther end, he saw the object of his search, walking nervously up and down across the end of the pier and glancing furtively at the shipping in the harbor. VVorden followed his glance. There lay the steam- ship H Alert" of the French line, swinging at her buoys. She was to sail at three o'clock. The man on the end of the pier stopped his pacing and stood for a moment gazing earnestly at the steamer, then he sank down upon a bale of merchandise and buried his face in his hands. For a moment he sat thus, until lN7orden had ap- proached close to him, then, with a hard fixed ex- pression on his face, he sprang to his feet. As he turned he saw W'orden. A look of amaze- ment and terror came into his eyes. He took a step backward. His heel struck the stone rim of the pier and, uttering a cry, he disappeared over the side and the waters of the Gulf closed over him. The workmen on the harbor improvements ran over on the timbers near to the spot where he had gone down, but he did not come to the surface. Half an hour later the divers pulled his lifeless body out from under the planks and debris of the false- work of the new pier. At the police station the roll of money was found in his inside pocket, but neither steamship ticket to France nor railroad ticket to Mexico City. H Quien sabe ! " said NVorden sadly, as he stood over the lifeless body of his late companion. ft Quien sabe I '7 Then he was filled with shame for the unworthy thought. But, in truth, H quien sabe," who knows which of the two would have conquered-the good or the evil impulse contending at that hour in the breast of Harry Lacey. Some Extracts DEAR TED 2 I am so sorry that I can not keep my date for this afternoon, but I have a very bad head- ache so that I really think I had best not go to the base ball game. I hope you will enjoy it just as much without me. Sincerely, ALICE. May 3. From a letter of Theodore Dowell at Northern University to Fred Neal at Amherst, dated May I : it 4' if Old fellow, I have a bad case of the dumps today. You know that Alice French and I have been pretty near U steadies 3' for about a year. Well, yesterday, about noon, I received a note from her saying that she had a headache and could not go to the Northern-Michigan base ball game with me. I had wanted to see the game pretty badly, so I went. And then-saw her there with that fellow Means, one of the Dekes-you know him. So the affair is all off now. 4' 4' if NORTIIERN UNrvERsi'rv, May 20. DEAR FRED: bf' at I Last night was our last frat dance for the year. I was there with May Allen, one of the tri-Delt girls, and an awfully nice one, too. I never enjoyed an evening so much. Strange I never knew her before. Rather think I will take care of her the rest of the term. W 4' From same to same 1 May 29. it tk Congratulate ine, old boy, I have added another girl to the list of our frat sisters. May Allen wears my pin now. I tell you what, sheis all right. The year is almost over now. I have enjoyed it more than any since I have been here. I have all of May's dates for commencement week. I think she is the nicest girl I ever met. it From Theodore Dowell, Detroit, Mich., to Miss May Allen, Lexington, Ky., dated june 18 : I' just think, only three days since school was out and yet it seems three months since I saw you. I wish we were back at school now. Wlieii are you going to start back for Northern. I will get there about the 15th of September. I wish you could be there then. I LEXINGTON, KY., September 16. My DEAR MR. DowELL: I know you will be awfully disappointed at what I have to tell you. Father is so ill that I can not come to school this year and possibly not any more at all. You can not imagine how much I regret it. I expect you would like to have your frat pin, so I am sending it by registered letter. If Yours truly, INIAY ALLEN. From Theodore Dowell to Fred Neal at Amherst, dated October 18 : Ak May Allen is not in school this year. She wrote me just a few days before school opened that she could not be in. It may be a good thing, for, you renieniber why I quit Alice French last spring. She wrote nie a note the other day asking ine to call. Well, I went. And then she told me why she did that way last spring. Seems as if Means was a cousin of hers, but she did not like him very well. The day of the game he came to her room, seemingly with the intention of spending the after- noon. To relieve herself of him as much as possible she asked him to take her to the game. I proceeded to make amends by taking her to the foot ball game yesterday. I have her for our first dance tomorrow night. Mr. Theodore Dowell, In account with Adams and Son, Liverymen.

A Crimson Rose CLAUDIA IYIAY FERRIN VVithered and bruised and broken, It lay in the dusty street, Thrown thither by careless fingers And trodden by hurrying feet 1 Till one from the throng espied it And paused, with tear-dimmed eye, To save it--a rare, loved treasure- From the tread of the passersby. He saw 'mid its petals a cottage, With a rose-bush near the door, Whose crimson buds and blossoms He had counted o'er and o'er. Beyond was the face of mother, Vlith its smile of love untold, Nowzaglow with the joys of glory That shone through the gates of gold. From his eye he brushed the tear-drops, From the rose the grime of the street 3 In his heart he cherished the vision Of the face so patient and sweet, Which beckoned him onward, upward, From earth with its countless woes, And he deemed it a joy to follow, Inspired by the crimson rose. just a Girl's Heart T YVAS an old-fashioned, comfortable parlor in which they were sitting--Hortense and jack. The early gloom of the winter twilight relieved only by the dancing flames of the coal-fire. His face, so the firelight revealed, was grave even to sadness, while her expression, as she nervously twisted and turned a ring on her finger, was far-away and dreamy. Deep silence had fallen between them, strained and eager on his part, on hers so retrospective that he felt himself forgotten and with man-like impatience at her very feminine attitude he at length broke out with-UVVell, I-Iortense, have you forgotten me alto- gether?'l Then more gently, HI am waiting for my answer. ' l She withdrew her glance from the glowing coals and for a moment her dark eyes rested on his sombre face. UI can't some-way tell you just how it is," she said, Hand yet-," her voice trailed off into silence and again her eyes studied the ire while his troubled gaze took in her small restless hands, her serious eyes, her womanly face. The quietude of that face smote the young man with sudden pain and his face darkened. Then, Very gently-"My dear, I don't quite understand you. Wliat is it you fsome-way can't tell?' " jack was standing now leaning against the mantel, looking down upon her and she gravely raised her eyes to his. HSOIIIS-'WHY I can't tell you just in words how I feel," slowly, Hand then-O, it seems as though a man just fzzfzlz' understand a girl's heart! But if you'll try, and really care to know, why may- be I can tell you in a way." And so with cheeks flushed and her eyes looking persistently anywhere but into his face, the girl told the following little tale : "There was once a maiden who owned a kingdom, and while to some it might have seemed small and of little worth yet she prized it very highly and held it fast. This little kingdom resembled a large garden more than anything else, and as its little mistress passed through it on her inspection tours she would uproot occasional little weeds. Here proud lilies lifted their heads and ambitious holly-hocks Haunted their bright colors, quite over-shadowing the few pansies and lilies-of-the-valley. Yet, after all, it was a fair, sweet garden-spot ! 'LA peculiarity of this kingdom was the buildings it contained. There were several of them fashioned like the shrines found in foreign countries, and each erected to a Friendship. And each one also bore a name engraven on it-and no name was like another. To one of these the maiden frequently repaired when sad, to another when thoughtful 3 her merry, careless moments found her by still another. And so she held these shrines of Friendship as something precious to her and dear. t'But one building by its glittering decorations quite outshone the modest shrines. This, shaped like a Mohammedan iuosque, had deeply carved in the stone above the door the one word tAmbition.' The deity of this temple was the only master the kingdomls little ruler had ever owned, but his auto- cratic sway she seldom disputed, his mandates, never disobeyed. "And one day as the maiden wandered through her garden she saw a tall strong man gazing wistfully into her kingdom. Another day she saw him and yet another, and one day he accosted her, and laying his hand on the gate craved permission to enter. For a long time the little ruler hesitated, but he only begged more earnestly, and while she still delayed he pushed his way in, not roughly but decidedly,-and stood before her. Then gently taking her hand he asked leave to build with her a shrine to Friendship, far larger and costlier than any modest, gray shrine in her kingdoin-one that would in every way surpass them all. And the maiden trembling, asked fAre you sure you mean to Friendship?' and he answered, 'Yes' "SO together they began this new shrine, which, as it grew, assumed the form of a stone castle, bid- ding fair to surpass all the structures in the kingdom. But one day, as he was building, the man slipped in a stone called 'distrust' and then another 'angerf And the maiden did likewise. Then the man put in as the cornerstone one called tjealousy' which, when the maiden saw she cried, 'You have deceived mel You would enshrine Love here, not Friendship I And see the fake foundation stones ! It cannot stand and you-you must gol' But the man pleaded to re- main, acknowledged she was right, offered to rebuild the faulty structure,-and she almost hesitated. But catching sight of the mosque in the distance she hardened her heart, putting from her all memory of the sweet helpful days of their labor, of his dear com- panionship, and, almost, she pushed him out of the garden and locked the gate. 'tThe following day the little ruler repaired to the shrines which had long been neglected but strangely enough they failed to give her comfort. Something was missing, so she sought the temple and there found peace for a season. "The months passed and the half-built castle became overgrown with clambering vines. Sometimes the maiden would not look at it for days 3 again she would eye it wistfully, then, in a kind of anger, she would attempt to tear it down, only to find her hands too feeble. One day she sought its shade and tore up by the roots some tiny for-get-me-nots which had grown around it and trampled them fiercely under foot. And yet she remembered l Frequent and more frequent grew her trips to the mosque, less and less satisfying they became. And while the maiden was standing one afternoon with wistful eyes, hungry heart and hanging hands, another young man appeared at the gate and asked entrance. But she-H Hortense paused, but after a moment ,lack con- tinued the tale. H But she pointed out to him the dear Friendship shrines, Ambition's temple and thehalf-ruined castle about which the for-get-me-nots would bloom, think- ing thus to discourage him. And he longed only the more to enter, for these all bespeak her faithful- ness. He can only see her empty heart, her hanging hands, and still he asks: 'Dear, let me in., And she answers-" U By asking him to wait-just a few months-to wait. 1? An afternoon june sun was streaming in the old- fashioned parlor, lighting up the eager, hopeful face of a young man, the grave, tender face of a girl. 'fAnd she said to him, 'yes,' so he entered her kingdom, and hand in hand they began to rear a structure fitted to hold Love. Neither a castle nor a shrine they planned and built but a tiny cottage. And when it stood completed she looked around over her kingdom-hers alone no more. And lo, there were wonderful changes in her garden. Pansies, lilies-of- the-valley, daisies and blush-roses were everywhere 3 the holly-hocks had disappeared and close by the Shrine of Love orange blossoms scented the air. The half-built castle had fallen and its ruins had assumed the shape of a tomb overgrown with ivy and surrounded by for-get-me-nots. The little shrines had a neglected look, but strangest of all, the mosque was gone, its stones furnishing the foundation of the new dwelling. H And the man touched the maiden as she stood absorbed in revery and looking half-regretfully for the last time at her girlish kingdom. And the mis- tress of the garden thrilled at the touch and turning toward him revealed-a maiden's face no longer but 5 9 a woman's, for it was glorified by love. He drew 7 her with him toward the shrine and asked, "What name shall we place above the door,' and quick came the womanls answer, 'There is but one name as there is but one fitting shrine for Lovef 'And that name? ' said the man, half-doubtful. 'Homef 4'Again the woman cast a long look at her fair kingdom, now doubly dear because no longer hers alone but his, now doubly hallowed by the Shrine of Love. Qnce more the man drew her to him as they lingered on the threshhold, and once more he said, 4 Shall we enter? 3 " Hortense ceased. Long since Jackls arm had enfolded her and now he asked, unsteadily: UAnd does she enter? ll For answer she raised a glorified face to his. Memories HE days of our life in college pass as a dream, not a nightmare, but a gay kaleidoscopic suc- cession of characters and scenes. Some experiences stand out as the bright portion of a picture-stand out in bold relief from the dark background. Others are black, but they are now but the shadows that make the lighter parts the more decided. On our mind-films these pictures are photographed, and they come to us like flashes at times, and again with a steady persistency that causes strange feelings in our hearts. Sometimes we thrust them aside 5 but more often we linger over them and think-and think, and long a wee bit for the old times. The chapel hours-how bright they are l Now it is a stirring song that sends thrills through us and lifts us up the entire day. Now it is one of those stirring speeches that make and mold Franklin 5 one of those talks that go straight to the heart, for they come from the heart. There are words of advice, admonition, encouragement-seldom of reprimand. We shall forget the time, the occasion-the speaker, perhaps-but the impress of those thoughts is deep on our hearts, to be wiped out not soon. 6? elf 9? as ik -Y: if: ae Society-the word itself brings us a great many pictures. From the time the Freshman, eager to know the art of flattery, hoping to win hearts as well as knowledge, enters college, he is continually in the social sea. lt is truly amusing to stand off at a reception-a despised wall-Hower, if you please-and watch the smiles and the bowings, and hear the silly nothings. It is more amusing still for the one who has passed through all these things to think what a glorious clown he must have been. However, there are many good things in the social life. In quick succession come recollections of the H grubs," U spreads," ffcookey shines," banquets, stag parties, hay rides, picnics, and so on Without end. No, we do not condemn society, for it is out of the social life that friendships come and true friendships are the major part of college. ik' HE 42' :lf 4r as 6? :lv The mindls eye brings up in rapid succession ath- letic scenes. A solid mass of forms not in dignified array, but in a conglomerate lot of half-wild individ- uals, looms before us. Courage and endurance, and above all, hard work prove efficiency 5 hats and canes in the air signal victory. Then there is the darker view when hundreds quiet and pensive and heart- aching, go out the gates to grieve over the result. An emptiness somewhere-we cannot locate it-and we wish for another trial at the foe. And ah, the pleasurable tennis! Skies clear, ex- cept the afternoon haze, the smooth white surface before us, and more than anything else-just a net between us. The result-gleeful eyes, rosy cheeks and strong lithe bodies. Everything has so much life, you feel it and see it and are made glad. And the scenery-the beauty begins as you go down the railroad from Jefferson street. No scene is more quiet than that below us on the south. The railroad speeding away over the bridge and the level ground beyond, the hill, heavily-wooded, on the left, the small stream in the foreground, meeting the larger in the distance, the great oaks andsbeeches, just large enough and numerous enough, and far enough away to rest the eye. The cattle in the foreground, and sometimes a man with a hoe. All, typical of peace. The view of the little branch north from the bridge. Surely it was a thoughtful person who planted those poplars. There they are rising on either bank, and nodding to each other as they go upward. They look at each other in the still 'water below and wave an encouraging welcome to the nature-lovers on the bridge. Wander toward the hill. A solid mass of green, with one tower extending quaintly above. The trees are so strong and self-possessed. The grass shows care, and the old buildings seem to harmonize with their natural surroundings. They are a part of each other. Do not say that Franklin is not beautiful. So we wander about the grassy knolls. Life, life everywhere. It is Spring, the time of love. How much we laugh at it, how many comedies are made of the disease-but love still goes on. Yes, as long as Franklin exists, as long as Spring comes, it will reign. And why not? VX7e are a part of nature then 3 we feel the life-blood swelling within us, we love the trees and the flowers, feeling them to be akin. Sentiment and nonsense? Well better by far be sentimental than have no feeling. Better a burn- ing coal than a cold stone. And if we love nature, why not our fellowbeings more? There is a spirit we cannot explain, a God-given spirit, filling us, and thrilling us, and we exult and rejoice in it. Other memories come-those of class-day, com- mencement and ivy day-the parting times. They are too near and dear to talk about now. In the future they too will be blended into one harmonious whole-a combination of soft grays, undying colors -all making one dear picture-Franklin. To Be or Not to Be T XVAS a fashionable girls' boarding school. It was the institution of one of the wealthiest and most conservative religious sects of our country. The denomination we will not mention, for we are not concerned with its religion but rather with the spirit of Christianity manifested by its students. For men have ceased to talk of doctrines and dogmas. Ortho- doxy has fallen into ffinnocuous desuetude" as one of our statesmen would say. And the Christ-life has become the criterion of virtuous living. Happily these old forms are dead. We will not revive them for the sake of this story. Let them rest in honored silence. For they have not come and gone devoid of a worthy purpose. For rising by means of them we have reached broader thinking and higher points of vision. This college campus was one of the historic spots of earth. It had been so animated and reanimated by the strenuousness of college life that like Pygma- lion's statue, it seemed to breathe and speak. The ancient gray of the buildings bespoke the maternity of three generations. Every sheltered cove along the lake shore, every winding path and shady nook and well nigh every tree and shrub and stone expressed that silence which surpasses eloquence. Every half blown rose seemed bursting with the secret of some inaiden's heart. The fountain nearby had gurgled into overflow in its attempt to keep secret, dreams of world-wide import, told to it by the ambitious Freshmen of each succeeding year. Many a stately elm thereabouts had overreached in divine benedic- tion the plight of true love. For not far away was a certain university whose young men had assumed important roles in the activity of this girls' school. And their participation in events had greatly en- riched its history. It was one of those rare days in June and a sweet peace had settled down upon the college. Two days since the festivities of commencement week had closed. The student body had gone. Only an occa- sional member of the outgoing class, loath to take her last farewell, lingered about the college. just as the sun was setting, two girls clad in the conventional cap and gown, emerged from one of the dormitories. By unconscious familiarity they turned their footsteps toward the lake. Silently, hand in hand, they strolled along the shore until they came to a seat hewn in a huge moss-covered stone. A friendly shrubberry enclosed it, and from the canopy of boughs overhead hung trailing vines in royal drapery-a veritable lovers' rendezvous. Here they sat down to watch the sunset add its last mellow tints to the perfect picture of Spring which nature had been painting all day long. The sun dipped deeper and deeper into the lake and diffused its golden glory in the water. As the evening shades gathered about 'them one of the girls looked far out to the westward and thought how like the coming darkness was to the great pall of sin that seemed settling down over the earth. In fan- tasy troops of homeless children passed before them in the twilight, throngs of weeping women, armies of vicious men and long lines of humanity, showing faces white with wicked hate and hands all dripping red with a brother's blood. Out of a soul of love she breathed a prayer to the All-Father for help to love these unloved ones, to remove this fountain of tears, to banish this heartless indifference and speak peace to the troubled souls of these children of Cain. As she gazed upon the picture, the tears came into her great blue eyes. For Chancel Godfrey had a plastic heart that had a responding sympathy for every member of the race. As a student she had not forgotten the great outside world and she had been equally mind- ful of her co'-workers in the school. There was scarcely a student who had not at sometime felt the geniality of her kindness. Many a flattering Fresh- man had received the first words of encouragement and assurance from her. In all her college course she had never found herself too busy to seek out and befriend the lonely girl 5 to carry flowers to the sick 5 to accommodate a new student 3 to help a bewildered fellow-worker through a difficult lesson 5 to cheer the homesick 5 to listen to the troubles of her roommate and help devise their solution 5 to write a friendship letter to her mother 5 to read some worthy book or a beautiful poem to a quiet group of girls met in some shady nook of the college campus on a Sunday after- noon. The girls were unanimous in pronouncing her a H jewelfl She had also been a conscientious student. However, there may have been times in class when certain mathematical demonstrations of her's would have been more elaborate had it not- been for these other things. But if we measure her life by heart throbs and soul impulses, rather than by the length of her Greek vocabulary or the number of geometrical theorems which she carries about with her, as distinct mental images, Chancel Godfrey was the best student in college. But to Berledine Mont, sitting beside her, this reverie of the eyentide suggested quite other things. With those Madonna eyes of hers she looked far away through a vista of books piled mountain high on either side and saw the doors of a great uni- versity swing back. She, in company with many other students, was passing in. At last she was seated in one of the lecture rooms, face to face with the great doctor of political science, of whom she had heard so much and read so much. The world was naught to her. She forgot all else save herself and her ambition. In all her thinking there was not one thought of home or friends. She was not going home on the morrow. She was going to the moun- tains in a neighboring State to board that summer with a German family, so that she might acquire an audible knowledge of the German language. This would enable her to take a certain course of lectures on political science, to be given by this learned doctor at the university that fall. Berledine Mont was the brainiest girl in school. Her record had never been surpassed in that institu- tion. Besides being brilliant she was a hard worker. She was graduating with the honors of her class, and the faculty agreed that she was the immortal mem- ber of the school. After one of those long heart to heart talks known only to senior girls in those last days, they retraced their steps. The kindly shimmering of the moon hid the defects of the landscape and turned its silvery beams only on the beautiful and the true of this bit of nature. So that the scene before them appeared the emblem of perfection. That night one of them lay down to a peaceful slumber with visions of home and loved ones for the morrow. The other fell into a deep sleep to dream of diplomas and degrees, of scholars' caps and gowns and manuscripts, and a great scroll of knowledge that unrolled and forever unrolled, the end of which no man could discern. 6? PK Pk -W Pk X wk it Ten years had passed. It was the opening day of the term. The chapel was filled with an expectant audience. There were the old students, the new students, oiiicials, friends and many distinguished visitors. The platform presented the same line of familiar faces in the faculty, save two members elect, Berledine Mont, Ph. D., head of the department of political science, and Phillips Ashworth Barton, Ph. D., lecturer on Greek history. These two delivered the addresses of the morning. Dr. Mont spoke first. Her address was a marvel for beauty of thought and adequacy of language. Her logic, her wit and her eloquence were irresistible. Audience never wit- nessed a more brilliant display of pure intellectuality. They were awed by her reach of mind. She com- pelled their admiration. What she was on that oc- casion she was to her students ever after-clear, cold and brilliant. It mattered little to them that she was a charter member of the P. S. A. of her State, that she was vice-president of the National P. S. A. , and that she was on the executive board of the Inter- national P. S. A., for they seldom saw her except be- hind her desk, in the class room or across the library table. And they knew nothing of her inner life save such as she translated into terms of political science. She had lived so long unto herself shut up in books, that she had lost that Platonic personality that char- acterizes the born teacher. With the elimination of that personal element there was nothing left of her subject, otherwise so full of life and meaning, but a long category of facts and statistics that inspired no one. Having all knowledge, she lacked that charity which surpasseth knowledge. When Phillips Ashworth Barton addressed them there was little of that sparkle and brilliancy mani- fest. He spoke in that deep unmistaken tone always in evidence when a great soul finds utterance. He discoursed on the possibilities of the Christian student. Thirty years of consistent living reinforced his words. It was that appeal of soul to soul which cannot be defied. There was not a young woman present who did not see life in vastly different relations than she had ever seen it before. lt assumed wider and deeper significance than they had yet known. They could not doubt the sacredness of the very privilege of living. The veil was rent and they stood in Holy presence. In that hour they were born again. Born into a new life which manifested itself in that school by a higher standard of scholarship and a more al- truistic student body. It completely displaced that social veneer which is not infrequent heritage in girls' schools, and which is as far removed from the true aim of education as the east from the west. ln its stead there grew up that genuine Christian culture, devoid of form and convention because it is the ex- pression of that sincerity of heart and purpose which is equal to every occasion. ln the last decade that institution has tripled her enrollment. She is now one of the most prominent girls' schools in the east. She represents our wealth, our culture and our best families. Her graduate is considered the ideal Ameri- can woman. And happy indeed is that university man who succeeds in winning the heart of one of her fair daughters. VVhat Phillips Ashworth Barton was to the students in that opening hour, he has never ceased to be. The potency of his life has abated nothing as he has continued among them. How much of the student life of Chancel Godfrey, so beautifully unsel- fish, was formulated in that memorable address, no one knew. And how many of the college ideals of Chancel Godfrey were realized in the person of Chan- cel Godfrey-Barton, and found expression in the daily life and subsequent public acts of Phillips Ashworth-Barton, one may never know.

' I Athletics THLETICS at last has a firm hold in Franklin College. The old feeling of antagonism against athletic sports that has existed for so long and caused us to fall behind other colleges in these lines, has gradually disappeared. Today every member of the faculty and every student is an en- thusiastic supporter of all college athletics. As a result our Alma Mater has become known all over the State, more in the last two years than ever before. We have developed teams that have gone out to compete with other college teams and they have brought us victory time and again. Our success has been largely due to the enthusiasm of the students in their support of the teams. Those who have been fortunate enough to make the differ- ent teams have had to work to hold their places, while the rest of the students have supported them both financially and with yells of encouragement. It is the exception instead of the rule to see a small number of students at any of the athletic games. The usual picture that greets our team on entering the field is the majority of the students gathered in the side lines, bedecked with colors and yelling with all their might for the 'fGold and Blue." And scattered here and there through the crowd are members of the faculty. Such support puts new life in a team and gives them strength to win. With such support and the present number of good athletes in school, we will ever be able to rank among the first colleges of the State in athletics. Oficers Mark Miller .

Having accomplished the work given them to do, with their diploma in hand, they bade their Alma Mater farewell, without ever having had the privilege of enjoying an hour's work in the college gymnasium. But that time has now passed forever in the history of Franklin College. The Franklin College student of today is not only trained intellectually and morally, but physically as well. If a student leaves Franklin College today with an aching back, stooped shoulders or weak lungs, it is his own fault, for the present Franklin College student is not only given an opportunity to do good gymnasium work, but is urged to do it. While it is true that our gymnasium is by no means perfect in its location and equipment, yet it is the beginning, we hope, of a magnificent stone gymnasium build- ing, which will add more beauty to our picturesque campus in the near future. To W. G. Everson, our physical director, we are almost wholly indebted for the present condition of our gymnasium and the efficient work done therein. Mr. Everson was appointed physical director of the college in September, 1897. By January 1, 1898, he had raised a sufficient sum of money to fairly equip the gymnasium. Other pieces have been added from time to time until the present quarters are too small for the apparatus. The number of students in the gymnasium classes has rapidly in- creased, so that the classes now have to work in divisions. Our physical director is certainly to be congratulated on the rapid progress made in the Gymnasium. F A A For the last two years Miss Ella Waggener has had charge of the girls' gymnasium class. Miss C Waggener has been associated with gymnasium work for more than four years, and in that time has proven herself to be not only a good student in this work, but a good instructor as well. Another very interesting and instructive feature of this department has been the series of lectures given in the First Baptist Church this year under the name of the Physical Lecture Course, which was arranged for and controlled by the gymnasium committee.

Remy When we say that the work of this organization is of primary importance we are stating an axiomatic truth. Nowhere, in all of the other organizations of the college, are the fellows able to come in such close touch with one another and show the true feelings which prompt their everyday lives. The meetings are spiritual alld uplifting, and those who attend them never fail to say in their hearts, " it was good for us to be here." Nearly half a century has passed since the first movement toward the formation of the American Association was inaugu- rated. In that time many men of the highest Christian worth have been leading factors in the young ments movement, and today an army of many thousand soldiers of Christ are winning daily victories for the Master. Our own Asssociation is now ten years old. Its beginnings were small and weak and many were the discouragements that met its charter members. A firm determination and an unwavering trust enabled them to overcome all difficulties and to accomplish great results. The membership has increased year by year until it enrolls about sixty young men. Of course the results of the work are not as great as the leaders might wish for and yet very material harvests have been gathered. The Association sends from two to five delegates to the Summer School at Geneva, Wis., each year, and these men not o111y receive rich personal blessings, but are able to bring a portion of the good tidings to those who are unable to attend. The state conventions are also a means of grace of which many of the fellows take advantage. This year we were able to send XV. G. Everson as our delegate to the Student Volunteer Convention, which met at Toronto, Ont. Y. M. C. A Y. W. C. A. " Not by might nor by power, Officers 1901-2 ' President 1902-3 Pearl B.

A. of Franklin College was organized in May, 1891. There have been ten presidents of the organization up to the present time, viz: Mildred Sourvvine, May Huston, Myrtle Huckleberry, Bertha Davis, Edna Yxfatson, Lulu Calvert, Ruth Wallace, Mary Hall, Pearl Rook and Grace Stubbs. The special work of the Y. VV. C. A. is to deepen the spiritual lives of the college girls, to train them in Christian Work and discipline along with the development of their minds. At the opening of each college year an earnest effort is put forth by the association girls to aid and encourage the new girls. Regular devotional meetings are held each Thursday evening from 6:15 to 7 o'clock, and it is in these meetings that the girls come the closest to each other and help each other most. In addition to these meetings many of the girls unite with the Y. M. C. A. in the Tuesday evening meeting, known as the college prayer service. Also Mission Study and Bible Study Classes are arranged and conducted by the proper committees working jointly with like committees from the young men's association. By its faith in Christ and its perseverance the association has accomplished much good. Some of its representatives are giving their lives as missionaries in home and foreign fields, and others are volunteers for the same service. ' Previous to this year the association has sent twenty-nine representatives to the State conventions. The conventions were entertained by the local organization in 1894 and again in 1901. Eleven girls have been sent to the summer conferences held at Lake Geneva, XVis., one to the National Convention of Volunteers at Detroit and three to Cleveland, O. Our band now numbers forty-five and by constantly bearing our motto in mind We hope to accomplish many things for Him who is our guide and helper. Y. W. C. A The Debating Club Harry E.

An unsuccessful attempt to organize and conduct a debating club was made a year ago. The chief cause for failure was the lack of a competent guiding hand. This year the necessary leading factor is present in the person of Prof. Bestor, who is by no means a novice along this line. In addition to Winning a number of prizes in oratory he studied! the science of debate with such zeal that he was chosen leader of the suc- cessful Chicago teams which met the University of Michigan and Columbia in 1900. Under his direction the fellows of the club have made rapid improvement. It is the purpose of the members to continue their work from year to year, and thus opportunity is given to lower classmen to secure a systematic and thorough course of study along this line.

Most of the boarders had assembled, but for some reason conversation flagged. Frankie Bachelor, seizing this timely opportunity for amusing the crowd, began to transfer sugar from the sugar-bowl to his tumbler, at the same time remarking, " Betche, I know what's good. Take two spoonsful of sugar and-" he stopped, for Mrs. 'Williams appeared in the doorway bearing a platter of meat, a dish of potatoes, and a few other things. " It seems to mej' she quietly remarked, as she placed the things o11 the table, "that we have a baby playing at the table today." Uproarious mirth followed this speech and Bachelor liushed. " I don't see what business it is of hers if there is a baby here," he said after the lady had left the room. just then she returned and Bachelor was dared to repeat his remark. " Oh, it isn't necessary," interrupted Mrs. Williams, " I heard it, anyhow." The club was exceedingly amused now, but Bachelor was bored instead. He left the room before any one else was half through eating and failed to eat his pie-an unprecedented occurrence. . Ten Rules of Two Girls Living Near the College There is a certain dow11-stairs front room near the college occupied by two most charming and popular young ladies. Owing to the great rush of callers, they have adopted the following rules and regulations: Rule 1. This room, while you are in it, is entirely at your dis- posal. Do with it as you will. Rule 2. Avoid all unnecessary quiet. Noise is good for the headache. Rule 3. Don't knock. Just kick the door in. We like to be surprised. ' Rule 4. VVe are passionately fond of being talked to after meals when we are studying. It makes us forget our troubles. Rule 5. Never mind picking up the feathers after a pillow fight. We need exercise. Besides it reminds us of the comforts of home. Rule 6. Whenever you feel like it, we would be glad to have you stack our room. The house pays the freight. Rule 7. If you are making collections of hair ribbons, hand- kerchiefs or kodak pictures, give us a call. If ours don't suit bring them back. Rule 8. You are cordially invited to loaf here between recita- tions. Anyone caught studying in here will be thrown out. This room is strictly for recreation. Rule 9. Anything that you can not use, please leave it for the next visitor. We try to be impartial. Rule 10. Anyone not obeying these rules will be shot at sunset. 4 Proverbs He that laugheth long and heartily at the prof's jokes shall surely be rewarded, but he that turneth up his nose in scorn, shall not be forgotten when the day cometh. A safe steed rnaketh the Hunker's heart glad, but a shying steed bringeth him nigh unto destruction. Beware of the fraternity goat, He doth live upon the tin cans of the alleyways, and doth lead his rider a weary chase. The backbone thereof is as the softness of a sofa cushion. Woe be unto the knocker and the never-weary maker of puns. As vinegar to the teeth and smoke to the eyes, so are the Hunkers to Professor Thompson. My freshman lad. Be not wise in thy own conceit, neither seek to make thy presence known. Rather be content to let thy Ways be concealed, that thy verdancy be 11ot observed. He that trusteth to a back seat in mathematic exam. shall surely fall down. There is a way that seemeth right unto the jollier, but the end thereof is pain and labor. The See-Saw of Time P AND DOWN went the see-saw 5 a dark-eyed boy on one end and on the other a wee slip of a girl with laughing blue eyes and yellow curls waving in the breeze. They have played together all the summer days, and many happy hours have they spent at the see-saw. U Pd rather go up than downj' said the girl. " So would lj' the boy answered. H I wish we could both go up at once." H But we can't.'l 4' I know it." H Fm tired of see-sawing," said she. " So am l,'l he answered. Then he steadily held the board firm and straight while she tripped lightly to the stone wall across which it was laid. There they could sit close together, his bare, brown feet dangling down among the daisies in pretty contrast to the daintily slippered ones of his companion, and it mattered not to this young pair of six and ten that she dwelt in the lap of luxury while he was the son of poverty. The days went by. He went to sea and dwelt in foreign lands for many years. There fortune smiled upon him and poured her rich gifts at his feet. In the meantime his little playmate had grown to womanhood and her father's riches had taken wings and flown. They meet again. They talk of the golden suin- mer days of yore when they played together and the see-saw went up and down. They have changed places since then, she smilingly says. You see that the other end of the see-saw is up now," says he, with love's pleading in his eyes, 4' I'm tired of sea sawingf' She understands and answers, " So am lf' And so close together they keep and the see-saw is bal- anced.

The Door-Step XBY ARTHUR JULXUS UN1-HANK, Ex. '04. The conference meeting through at last, We boys around the entry waited To see the girls come tripping past, Like snow birds willing to be mated. Not braver he that leaps the wall By level musket Hashes litten, Than I who stepped before them all, Who longed to see me get the mitten. But no, she blushed and took my arm. W'e let the old folks have the highway And started for the Maple Farm, Along a kind of lovers' byway.

The little hand outside her muff- Oh, sculptor, if you could but mould it I- So lightly touched my jacket cuff, To keep it Warm I had to hold it.

She shook her ringlets from her hood, And with a H Thank you, Ned," dissembled But yet I knew she understood VVith what a daring wish I trembled. A cloud passed kindly overhead g The moon was slyly peeping through it, Yet hid its face as if it said : " Come, now or never, do it, do it P, My lips till then had only known The kiss of mother and of sister, But somehow, full upon her own Sweet rosy darling lips I kissed her. Perhaps 'twas boyish love, yet still, Oh, listless woman, weary lover, To feel once more that fresh wild thrill, I'd give-but who can live youth over? 3kEDITOR'S NOTE-This little poem, so true to nature, will no doubt recall similar experiences in the early life of each one of our readers. The author s poems can not be other than realistic, because he takes the commonplace episodes of his own life and makes them immortal by giving to them a poetical setting Quizzes Who Are They?

It was the good fortune of Mr. Betts to be permitted to call upon a young lady of Indianapolis who visited in Franklin some time ago. Upon taking his departure, the customary expressions of "enjoying her society" were gallantly indulged in, for which he received an invitation to visit her at her home in Indianapolis, In reply he said 1 " Father doesn't wish me to run about or leave here very much, but if I should ever be up to the city and have nothing else to do, perhaps I will call upon you." How About It ? Considerable surprise and consternation among the students was caused by the announcement in an Indianapolis paper, dated November 22d, that Professor Crowell and Professor Bestor, accom- panied by their wives, had been in the city for some purpose or other. The cause of the surprise was not that they had been in the city, but that Professor Bestor had a Wife. This fact had never been known among college circles before, and the unmarried ladies who had been associating with him to any extent took the blow especially hard. Professor Bestor says that he is still a benedict, and that the paper made a mistake. She had unfortunately made a mis-step and lost her footing. As she vainly struggled to regain a dignified position, Mr. Murphy calmly gazed upon the prostrate form and said in icy tones, "Well, Miss Brazelton, isn't this rather a humble posture for you to assume before me? " Gaelic gallantry is rapidly declining. President White, of the Sophomore Class, said in closing his inaugural, "I congratulate you" Qincluding himselfj "on your good looks. It is a fine looking class." fGreat applause from the classy We congratulate Mr. Wliite upon his blarneying qualities and the class upon its gullibility. l gil' " CII! ,gif UU fwfh 1 at lj., Wm xg, E K iv 29?

A Legend Whence these legends and traditions, XV ith the savor of the college, With the stamp of truth upon them, XVith their frequent repetitions, With their slight exaggerations? I should answer, I should tell you. " From the chapel and the class room, From the campus broad and shady, From the halls and the library, From the walls of Franklin College." I repeat them as I hear them From the lips of those who know them To be true, from having seen them. Would you hear how Mock-wan-ahma, How the reckless young heart breaker Fooled the guests of Alpha Gamma? How the gentle York-kee-abis, He the sweetest of musicians, Sang his songs of love and longing? In the month of February, On the evening of the fourteenth, On that day when love is dawning In the bird's nests of the forest, Alpha Gamma Alpha's maidens Made a feast for all their loved ones, Called them to make merry with them. Only this restriction bound them 2 They must come dressed as when children XVith their features all distorted Or concealed that none might know them On the evening of the party, Dressed in costumes quite outlandish, Came the gay young bucks, the warriors, To the Wigwam designated. In another Wigwam near it, YVaiting all in fear and trembling For the happy time of mating, XVere the Alpha Gamma Alphas. In their midst there was a stranger, A young maiden, sweet and buxom, Known by only a few maidens, In their midst she was a stranger, Was a gray wolf , Mon-da-boan, In a sheep skin, Waba-shaw-see. Thus it was that Mock-wan-ahma He the reckless young heart breaker. Entered in the maiden's wigwam, Disguised as an Alpha Gamma. I could tell you, should you ask me, How the young men came, the warriors. Seeking each to find a maiden Suited best for merry making At the place of joy and feasting, At the Alpha Gamma's party. How that York-kee-abis, thinkin He had found the choicest maiden, Took the hand of Mock-wan-ahma As a sign that he would choose her, NVould go with her to the party. Took her to the Wigwam doorway, Put her moccasins so dainty, Made of rubber, number sevens, On her tiny feet, so shapely. U cv Forth into the streets of Franklin As on ether strode he forward. Smooth of tongue was York-kee-abis He the sweetest of musicians, He the best of all the singers. When upon the way they started He began to murmur to her In his tones so sweet and Winning, That she clung unto him closely, Pressed the arm that he had offered. And the gentle York-kee-abis Made more cbolldbby this slight pressure Sang with accent sweet and tender, Sang in tones of deep emotion Songs of love and songs of longing. Looking still at Mock-wan-ahrna Hid behind the mask of muslin, Sang he softly, sang in this wise: " Thou art Maud-dee-XVitt, beloved, Though the pillow case upon thee Hides thy features, makes thee ghastly Hides thine eyes so soft and fawn like, Still I know the gentle pressure Of thy hand so white and dimpled. I am happy ! I am happy I " But the maiden whispered to him : U No, my friend, you are mistaken, Maud-dee-'Witt is right behind us Making goo-goo eyes at Thurston," But again she gave the pressure Of her hand upon his coat sleeve. "Ah, I have it now, he warbled, Your disguise no more deceives me. Now I know thee, Margu-rita, Sweet thy breath is as the fragrance Of the phenil iso nitril, That Max Hall concocts at the college just to ill the halls with perfume. Does not all the blood within me Leap to meet thee, leap to meet thee? ' And the brave young York-kee-abis Slipped his one free arm behind him, Tried to put it round the maiden. Swat ! upon his face she slapped him And his bold heart sank within him, Sank like lead cast into water. Yet again the coy young maiden Reassured him by a pressure Of her hand upon his forearm. Thus they went upon their journey, Each with thoughts too deep for utterance. Should you ask me of the doings Of the Alpha Gamma Alphas At their chapter house that evening, I might tell you how York-kee-abis Blushed a brilliant red when taunted By the jolly bucks and maidens, Dressed as they had dressed in childhood, Of the Wealth of lost affection Wasted on a gross deceiver, On a man in Vl'OlIl2.I'liS clothing.

He paces up and down his room, Of lessons not a thought, For one fair dainty lass he sees, All else to him is nought. And so through college thus they go, Oblivious to all else But love and happiness and joy, , And nay, perhaps themselves. I might tell how Clara Moody, Knowing not that Mock-wan-alnna VV as not what he was pretending, VV ent and threw her arms around him, Sat upon his knee, contented With herself and all around her. Mock-wan-ahma, the young warrior, He the reckless young heart brealrer Thus deceived the Alpha Gammas And their guest, brave York-kee-abis, In the month of February, On the evening of the fourteenth, On that day when love is dawning In the bird's nests of the forest. A Dream Down the peaceful glassy lake He floats idly along, Forgetful of the woes of life, -. And humming an old love song. He sees her hair so silky brown, Her eyes so tender and blue: He hears her voice in whispers low, That voice possessed by few. He stretches forth his strong brown arms He caresses her pillowed head, But alas I he awakes, ah doleful fate, And is hugging the folding bed. Lovers' F ALL the delightful spots around the college and the campus, Lover's Retreat is without doubt the most charming. Feeling the need of such a place Qnot for themselves, but for the studentsj the faculty agreed to keep the main entrance to the chapel closed at all times so that the steps and vestibule might be appropriated by those sentimentally inclined. The idea met with hearty approval and the place has been quite popular from the very first. If those cold stone steps could receive the gift of speech they would no doubt become rich simply from hush-money. willingly given by the love-lorn pairs who have in this cool, shady retreatlrevealed the most profound secrets' of their hearts. They could tell of the youthful suitor who, encouraged by the sense of solitude, began with tremblings and stainnierings and a quaking heart to make known to his chosen fair one the burden of love which had weighed upon his heart for so long a time. Then, as the downcast eye and blushing cheek planted the germ of hope within him, how he grew bolder, how he plead, with voice no longer trembling, for only one word of encouragement, how then, in tones vibrat- ing with the burning passion of a sincere devotee who Retreat seeks requital for the all so freely placed on the altar of love, he sought to draw forth from her heaving breast the secret feelings which were hidden there and to break down the maidenly reserve which kept him from reading her heart. And then, when her love would no longer be held in leach, but leaped into her soft brown eyes, how he caught her fairy form in his strong arms and pressed her to his breast while she uttered a little cry of bliss- ful contentment. How he pressed his ardent kisses upon her unresist- ing lips. t Yes, and they might tell, too, of the lovers, quarrels and of their making-up again. Wliat a delightful making-up, too! And then those pleasant little 4' eats l' would not be forgotten, those feasts of love, served with the bakerls wares, dur- ing study periods on those bright spring mornings. Or, even sometimes, say it softly, during periods which are not study hours, but recita- tion hours. Oh, a popular place is the Lovers' Retreat, and its influence is cast over most of the students at some time in their college course. Indeed, the education is not complete until acquaintance is made with it. Miser- able is the man or maiden who knows not its charms.

Roscoe GILMORE Sirorr, '04, The Juniors XVONDERFUL class is the class of '03, and this is true not only concerning the wonderful mental ability which its members manifest, but along other lines as well. In the first place it is composed of fourteen men and six women, whose weights range fro1r1 128 pounds to 165 pounds, and whose ages vary according to the dates of their birth. The average weight is 145 pounds, and taken together the class would tip the scales at nearly one and one-half tons. The average age is twenty-one and seven-ninths years. Ten have blue eyes, nine brown and one gray. The hair possessed by the class as a whole, varies from buttermilk brindle to crow black. Three have black hair, six have blond hair, and eleven strike a happy medium and possess trichonial append- ages which might be termed chestnut or brown. There are no brick tops in this fortunate aggregation. Brunettes to the number of nine are found, seven blonds, and there are four who have no complexion at all. Each individual's nose is the length of the first two joints of his index finger. In politics we are divided, but agree pretty well with the present administration. The republicans poll ten votes, democrats six, and the prohibitionists four votes. Contributors to the Blue and Gold Authors Grace Mullikiu Mary G. Hall Roscoe -G. Stott J. Ralph Voris Claudia M.

HEEB President The Jolly Nine The "jolly Nine " is a club organized by the ladies whose faces are shown above. Their purpose is not known but those who are " next U affirm that their sole aim is to aid each other in breaking away from their former solitary manner of life. This was connrmed when one of them remarked in a thoughtless moment that they were "not going to be old maids any longer." One of the number, however, lyou can tell which one by the satisfied expression on her facej has progressed so far already that she acts as chaperon and as preceptress, teaching her less fortunate sisters how to charm the desired ones. The birthday of any one of them calls for great lamentation. Then the afHicted one makes known her misery and all with one accord condole her. One has made very decided prog- ress. Another has departed to unknown regions and the others still plod on. May success attend their way. District School During the latter part of the winter term the girls of the Y. W. C. A. decided to give an entertainment for the benefit of their association. Various kinds of entertainments were discussed as to their titness to make a paying entertainment. At last it was agreed upon by the girls that they would represent the district school of thirty years past in a play. With a few day's practice and the assistance of several of our college boys the District School under the management of Miss Bertha Smith as teacher, was pre- sented to the public on Thursday, March 13, in the College chapel. The old ways of teaching spelling, geography, arith- metic and other studies were presented with much similarity to those 'tgood old times." In the afternoon session of the school speeches, compositions, essays, and dialogues were given by the scholars. The entertainment was a success in every respect.

Jolies on the Other Fellow Dr. Stott, after making a few remarks about the unpleasantness between the Freshman and Sopho- more classes, very beautifully compared the students with four dogs which were playing very ainicably in Mrs. Allenls yard as he passed, but had become quite belligerent by the time he had reached the college. "I see," said Dr. Stott, one morning, 4' that a y-good many are not sitting in the places assigned to them? The remainder of his speech was interrupted by a general craning of necks to get a better view of the Senior section. John, who is supposed to sing in the choir, and Grace sat serenely side by side, appar- ently unconscious of their surroundings. But john is a keen-witted boy, and following the example of those in front of him, he looked toward the back of the room and smiled sweetly as though he saw there the source of all this amusement. Grace sat with some one else the next morning, however. U The gentleman whom you see over here," said Dr. Stott, motioning toward the left of the chapel, 'tis Mr. Flinn. I-Ie is an old comrade of mine and of course I can say that I know him-and not to his disadvantage." Then after the Doctor had resumed his seat an afterthought struck him and quickly aris- ing again, he added, U I might say that Mr. Flinn is a candidate for nomination for city marshal." The would-be marshal was given nine rahs. He is cer- tainly a keen politician. A Miss KEMP-'K What did you do when Dr. Stott came up the hall to where you Sophomores were during the scrap.

An Extract from an Old Manuscript Found in the College Ruins ND it came to pass in the days of Teddy, the king, that there dwelt among Franklinites a strong and mighty man, whose name was Mickey, which is, being translated, Irish. And his fame had spread throught all the country round about, for he was the greatest talker known to men. Even so great that there was no man in all the region, there- about, that could overcome him in this thing, yea not even all the scribes and Pharisees, nor the king himself nor any of the men about him. And the king when he heard this was so, said, K' Let the criers go forth through all the land and search through all the towns, to see if there be one that can free us from this scourgefl And it came to pass that after many days there was found among the Philis- tines who dwelt about Hopewell, a fair young maiden whose name was Van Nuys. And when she was brought before the man she said, "Oh Vern, live for- ever." And when she had said these words he be- came speechless with astonishment. And the joy was great throughout all the country round about for she had stilled his voice and he had become meek as the lambs that run about the sheepfolds. Even so that he followed her to Hopewell many times. Now this maiden had many brothers and sisters and Mickey was not pleasing in their sight, even so that there rose a great hatred among them against him. And they took counsel together how they might overcome him. So it came to pass that one night when Mickey had followed the fair maiden even to her house, they gathered themselves together and when he had gone into the house, yea when the door was shut, they did ride his steed, even so that it could not be found. And lo, at the third watch, when Mickey arose and betook himself he could not find his steed in any of the places round about. Uust at this point the manuscript becomes dim so that it can not all be deciphered, but the words meaning gray hairs are found many times, seeming not to have faded with the rest of the sentences. just what con- nection the gray hairs had with the narrative is not exactly known. lfVhether Mickey's hair became gray in searching or whether he began to talk again, so that the peoples' hair became gray, is a question yet unsettled. There is a theory lately advanced how- ever, that he in some manner found a gray horse which he rode to his homej Are You Going to Study Medicine?

Our Love Set A Romance of the Delta Court Prue is beautiful, audacious, even clever-I am plodding, dogmatic and late of The Association for the Stiff-necked and Perverse-yet I admire Prue. We are such a striking contrast, she and I, but what of that-Uthe course of true love never did run smooth." Oh, what convincing evidence of this enervating fact do I remember at the tennis-court I H Sir IneXcitus," she exclaimed one clear morning under the tall, shady trees during chapel hour. Prue is both fond of Latin and certain reproachful epithets -I enjoy neither. " Sir Inexcitus, " she began again, noting my dreaminess, " I abhor such quiet and peace and soulful communion and-U H And me," I interrupted. H Don't be foolishj' she continued, ff but truly you lack activity. You are a poet." I muttered a few senseless apologies and suggested tennis and in this I had at least pleased her, for thus it came about that, having donned my duck-trousers I wandered forth one sunny afternoon, with Prudence in the daintiest white frock, for a set of her beloved game on the Delta court. tt Must I serve ? " I ventured to ask, hoping to win a smile for giving her the shady side. U Certainly," she replied with authority. K' Men 9 ought to learn obedience at the outset of friendship- some men never learn." Of course I was stunned but determined with Bassonio to hazard all, so I said, U then surely you mean to 2 receive.' " 'tDon't be foolish," she once more admonished and the set began. Now Prudence Elizabeth Pembroke is not the young lady to simply eat salads at a U cooky-shine " and nought else, nor will she hesitate to take one last fond look in the mirror before entering a recep- tion hall, nevertheless she is possessed with certain healthy idiosyncrasies-moreover she will always win -it seems destiny. Alas, my H serve H is very imperfect, especially when I play Prue, and the first game was easily hers. The next game soon became her's also. H Love two ! " I shouted in desperation. U Perhaps I do,'I she said across the net-Prue feels courageous with a net between. How wretchedly I played that sunny afternoon only we two know-the number is fully sufhcient. She won everything-every thing. ff Prue," I faltered, "I do ask your pardon for this lifeless exhibition of tennis. Prue you will ?

D. Webb, Manager herself on the rustic bench near the court, 'fyou weren't thinking of tennis for you lacked activity. You are a poet." Perhaps she was right after all, I thought, for just then I imagined myself in some suffocating, tropical forest, groping about for something I could not de- fine, only to irnmerge into a vast dessert and pain- fully follow a mirage, that I might quench my thirst and, when I awoke, Prue was bathing my throbbing temples Qandj with cool water, and Derue, my dear old Delta brother, was holding my head.

Miss Hutton and " Babe" Spurgeon went to In- dianapolis one night to see "When Knighthood was in Flower H at the English. After the play Murphy and York found the pair wandering disconsolately around the circle. Upon inquiry it was found that they were lost in the heart of a great city, After they had been put right and were at last ensconced in the Franklin car, Spurgeon requested his preservers to kindly refrain from publishing his unfortunate predicament among the students. The authorities should appoint a guardian for " Babe " at once. Miss Voyles, wishing to Hlter a concoction she had made in the 'chemical laboratory carefully folded and pasted the filter paper so as to leave a small hole at the lower end of the funnel.
