all 'tt once as he happened to look up at the large clock standing
in one corner of the office, he jumped to his feet and told me that
he was supposed to take his hancee out for dinner. He asked me to
come along, but as I had other business to attend before returning
to the hotel, I was not able to accept.
The next day I left for New York City. It was a beautiful morn-
ing, and our train was gliding along through the beautiful country

when it suddenly stopped.
Of course, like most of
the other passengers, I
got off to see the cause, and
found that we had hit a
cow. As I walked up to
the place I saw an old
farmer, all excited, shak-
ing his Est and "laying
out" the train crew. On
' taking a closer look at the
farmer I found that it was Rutt, an old classmate of mine. This
surely did surprise me, for Rutt had always claimed that there was
nothing like city life. I began to whistle one of our old F. M. A.
football songs and Rutt turned around very quickly, for he still
remembered the old tunes we used to sing at "Prep" We were
surely two happy fellows, and we stood and talked till the track
had been cleared. Rutt by this time was so busily engaged in ask-
ing me questions about the fellows that he had forgotten all about
his cow. He told me about his family and all the other things he
owned, from horses down to cats. This was all very interesting,
but the track had been cleared and I had to leave, for my train was
pulling out. I can still imagine I see Rutt standing there waving
his large red handkerchief as we once more started for New York.
Well, I had gotten to my seat and once more settled down to think
of the many events that the last few days had brought about, and
almost before I knew it we were in New York. V
I drove back to the hotel where I was at that time located, changed
my clothes, and, calling a taxi, left to take in a show. As the car
was rolling along one side of the street, I noticed an unusually large
crowd in front of a little church. As I was in no hurry I stopped
and heard the people make comments about the wonderful evangelist.

As train time was approaching, I had to take leave of "Mickey"
and started on my way up the platform. I hadn't gone very far
till some one slapped me on the back, and on turning around I came
face to face with John Tynes, another of my old classmates. I
surely felt glad to see Tynes, but as we stood and talked over things
I heard the train-cryer call out the arrival of my train. I now started
to say good-bye to John, only to find
that he was going on the same train.
Once in the train, we began our con-
versation again. He told me that he
and his brother, Dick, were the prop-
prietors of a prospering little fruit stand
in Albany. As our conversation went
on, I told him of, f'lVIickey" and of
Scheirer's success. Time went on, till
we were at last in Albany, where I
left john, promising to drop around
to see him and his brother, and started
out to look for a hotel.
Isurely thoughtl had had some bigsur-
prises for one day, but I was to find that
A this wasjust the beginning. Upon arriv-
' I ing at the hotel whom did I find but John
Marshall, who explained that he was the proprietor. That evening
after dinner, John invited me down to his private office for a little
chat, and among other things he told me that Reade and Fahl had
spent a short time with him a few days before my arrival. He said
that the class of ,IQ surely ought to be proud of them, for Fahl was
now agent for a new corn plaster that had appeared recently on the
market, and that Reade was his assistant.
The next morning I left for a conference with the City Board
of Health, only to hnd, upon my arrival at the City Hall, Paul Berk-
heimer, one of my old classmates, who was head of the Board.
"Berkey" had become one of the well known doctors of Albany.
After our conference, f'Berkey," or Dr. Berkheimer as he now was,
began to tell me about his experiences since leaving school. The
conversation then drifted back to the old days at the Academy and
to the good times we used to have there. Time flew very fast, and

Of course my curiosity got the better of me, so I entered, and to my
surprise I came face to face with Beamer, who was preaching now.
I must admit that I was stunned, for that was the last thing on earth
that I had ever expected Beamer to do. I congratulated him upon
being in the ministry, and he invited me to come around to church,
as he had this charge regularly now. Beamer and I surely had "some"
talk, as this was the first time I had seen him for many years. I
- looked at my watch and saw that it
was nearly time for the show at the
theater, so I asked Beamer to accom-
pany me. Here I met with a strong
refusal. Upon reflection I remembered
that even in Beamer's days at "Prep"
we could never get him to go to a
show, so I took leave of him, promising
to call later.
I arrived at the theater a little before
the first performance and soon be-
came interested in the play. During
the intermission between the first and
second acts I happened to spy a familiar
face in the orchestra. The next act
came on, but I was too busily engaged
in looking at this particular person and
trying to place him in my mind to see it. After the show I quickly
made my way to the orchestra pit, and who do you suppose it was?
It was Ulloa, who by this time was a well known violinist. Steve
had shown traits of being a born musician even in the Academy
days, when he used to have every one praying he would stop when
he began to play on the violin. Iwas sorry that conversation was
cut short by the manager coming to Steve and acquainting him with
the fact that his family was waiting for him. On my Way home that
evening I surely felt very happy because I had met so many of my
old classmates whom I had not heard of for many years.
As I had been kept very busy for the last few months, and now
had a chance, I decided to take a little trip to the seashore for a rest.
I arrived there and set myself up in the little cottage which I had
rented, then started out for a stroll along the shore. Becoming a
