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

his administration. 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
May the gold and the blue eyer stand for L' Chris-
tianity and Culture. H

LEAR, consistent, independent thinking is one
of the best achievenients of any student. 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
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.

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-
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
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.

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.

students a familiarity with
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
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
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.
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

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
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

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
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
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
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.

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
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.

We are sure that 'Webster's words, when applied
to our college, are as true as when he applied them
to his own. 4' It is a small college, and yet there
are those who love itf' Yes, small in one sense,
perhaps, yet when we know that ahnost every Bap-
tist Church in our State has been benefited in some
way by our work, and many churches outside the
State, we are certainly broad in our smallness, at
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. I-Iatton, who is now doing work
in the University of Chicago, Lavonia Payne New-
som, of the Phillipine Schools, C. R. Parker, ofthe
Muncie High School, A. O. 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
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.
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.
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.

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
All hail thy palaces and
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
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,

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
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.

Nineteen Three !
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.

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.

The XVebster Literary Society, since its re-organization in 1877, has ever been known as a
success in every phase of work belonging to such an organization. We take pleasure in having
this privilege to say to the readers of this publication that the zeal for good literary work in this
society has in no respect abated. We are not only progressing in a literary way, but financially
and morally as well. VVe now own the best piano in the college. In the rendition of our
regular literary programs and in the size of our audiences we are second to no other literary
organization in Franklin College. May the ,Webster Society continue in the prosperity which
she has so long enjoyed.

Ofer Gan Literary Society
History of Ofer' Gan Society
INCE the publication of the Junior Annual of l99,
a third literary organization has developed in
Franklin College. 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

T WAS a June night and a beautiful moon made
the river gleam like a silver ribbon. 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-
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'
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."
"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
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?"
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
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' '

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-
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
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
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,
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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

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
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
"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,
"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
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
U By asking him to wait-just a few months-to
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
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
a woman's, for it was glorified by love. He drew
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.
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.

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.

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
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
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.

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
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.

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.

OR many years students came to Franklin to take
advantage of the good intellectual and moral
training given here. 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
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.

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.

The Y. W. C. 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.

It has long been the desire of many of the students to revive the interest in debate which has been flagging for a number of years. 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.

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
Rule 3. Don't knock. Just kick the door in. We like to be

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
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

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 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,

She understands and answers, " So am lf' And

The hidden meaning, and the feeling lent I
O, mask-like Culture, would to thee depart
And leave the heart-
To rule us here, alone.
just to be known-
As we are known above E
Be known our passionate desires, our love,
'Which, in disguise, pass by unknown to all !
No pity follows e'en at Mercy's call g
So, where the smiles had been, the tears fall free,
And can it be?-
From out our lips a moan.

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.
I can't remember what she' said 3
'Twas nothing worth a song or story,
Yet that rude path by which we sped
Was all transformed and in a glory.
The snow was crisp beneath our feet g
The moon was full 3 the flelds were gleaming.
By hood and tippet sheltered, sweet
Her face with youth and health was beaming.
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.
To have her with me there alone,
'Twas love and fear and triumph blended.
At last we reached the foot-worn stone,
Where the delicious journey ended.
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?

What Will His Reception Be
When He Calls?
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.

Should you ask me, whence these stories?
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.
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.
The College Case
When down the street he manfully strides,
Her face begins to shine 5
1 see those dimples come and go
Perhaps of love a sign.
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.
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.
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
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
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,

ing study periods on those bright

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.

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.

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.
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. H
NORMAN-ff I'll have to confess, Miss Kemp, that
I wasn't there when the Doctor arrived. I was

that I walked down town with Ed Johnson."

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

So John had come, and half in fear,
He heard the loud, exultant cheer,
Hurrah ! Hurrah I We are her men !
The train drew out and there he stood,
A voiceless piece of stone or wood,
A verdant plant that soon would bloom
Or wither up and meet its doom.
O wise, yet unwise, Fates that see
And l3l'iI'lg with swift alacrity
The Greeks of every tribe or clan
Who welcome, cheer and weigh the man.
A shrewd alumnus grasps his case,
A clever " brother " sets the pace,
A dear H co-brother " adds with grace,
I know a splendid boarding-place."
The shrewd alumnus talks of school,
The coming coach, the latest rule,
And John, well, john, just thanks the race
That makes this earth a welcome place.
Of course, you'll come to tea with me g"
He heard the frater's noble plea,
You know my great-great-grandpapa
VVas uncle of your grandmammaf'
O, ties of kinship, how they bind,
VVhen all the future seems unkind !
How oft they smooth the rugged way
And make the darkest night as day.
The supper over, he must meet
The club of boarders-what a treat I
Another brother, Captain Green,
His name, of course, you've often seen."
And brother this and brother that-
Oh ! what a great and noble " frat,"
So kind and cordial, cheerful band,
VVhat prompt attention you demand I
And then for days and nights galore
The brothers swarm his welcome door,
And parties come and parties go,
While life becomes a steady flow.
At last, ,mid laughs and sighs and cheers,
The Crimson on his coat appears,
And john, well, john, he thanks the race
That makes the earth a welcome place.
But changes come, for now no more
The hearty welcome as before.
Then blameless john for next year plans
To stay and till his father's lands.

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
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 ? "
ft Don't be foolish," she replied, carelessly seating

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.
I talked on the bridge at midnight,
I talked on the street at noon,
I talked in the College chapel,
I talked when all aloneg
I talked and am still a-talking,
You ask me the reason why-
My mother always winds me up,
And I never, no never run dry.

NVent 'round the other wayg
And then perhaps there'd be some chance,
To stop their ceaseless bray.
Good boys love their sisters,
Then I so good have grown
That I love other's sisters,
Better than my own.

and rt was agreed upon by
the members that each one
should come dressed as
when a child. On February Gth Miss Ruth Wood-
small received the above letter with enclosed picture
suggesting the pattern of her costume for the even-
ing of February 14, the time of the party. If our
readers desire further information, they must see
either Ralph Brown or Norman Pritchard.
Yes, Ralph was enjoying the pleasant stroll with
not a thought of danger when suddenly a detail of
those cruel soldiers appeared--and poor Ruth wended
her weary way homeward alone.
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. After examining the
filtered preparation for some time she called Prof.
Crowell and said, " VVhy, Professor, there are parti-
cles of zinc in this after I filtered it. YVhat is the
matter with it ? " Prof. C. lool-:ed at the paper and
replied, " why of course there will be zinc in it with
that hole in the paper. Wliat have you that hole
for ? " Miss V. " YVell, I didn't see how I was to
filter the stuff unless there was a hole for it to run
through. 1 '
Miss Rook, on being asked at the dinner table why
she didnft stand up for her rights when teased about
a certain young man, said :

The Phi Delts issued invitations,
But two Sigs made strong intimations,
That their company did not suit.
So they held some consultations,
Over their direful situations.
The case was this, 'tis plain to see,
That one had cruelly got G. B.,
The other one sure jilted had been,
Now you see what straits they were in.
They thought, they pondered,
They queried, they tried,
This dreadful question hard to decide,
And so they planned their company to trade,
The secret to keep from each little maid.
Now this, they thought, would work real well,
For surely none the girls would tell,
But things will out 5 the boys were teased,
The joke of it was the girls were both pleased.

I love its harmless How,

Just to hear it go.
I hate to use a folding bed,
Because I have been told,
That many sleeping lambkins have
Been gathered in the fold.
I often lie awake at night,
And wonder how 'twould seem,
Had Miles ne'er to Franklin come,
If 'tvvere only an idle pipe dream.
