HEN we were "Freshies", we
looked with owe upon the Sen-
iors who edited the lirst Clarion,
ond looked forward to the time when
we should have that duty, as if it
were ten or twelve years away.
But now we are Seniors, and before
we can realize it, the time has come
fo1'eiliti11g'tl1e Clarion. As we look
upon the fruits of the labors of other
yezirs, we feel that we are not compe-
tent for such a tnsk, and so, Renders,
we would ask you to read these pages

position than the one he has been hold-
ing, we could not be reconciled to
the idea of losing him. But his place
has been amply Elled by Prof. Frank
P. Morse. lVe were fortunate in be-
ing' able to retain Miss Mitchell and
Miss Littlefield as assistants for an-
other year. YVe think we are safe in
saying that no other high school in
the state has teachers so universally
loved and honored as ours, and we
should be sorry indeed, if called upon
to part with tl1em.
N regard to speaking, just a word.
We think that, as a rule, it is im-
proving' rapidly. Some of the girls
are studying elocution, which they
seem to enjoy greatly. It is certainly
a good thing for the school when the
scholars study to improve themselves.
A-ta-ta-ta-ta-te! When Miss I
Mitchell appears, singing book in
hand, we know it is ti1ne for our mu-
lesson. And what fun we all have!
We never fully realized, before, how
much musical talent existed in the
school, particularly among the boys.
How their voices ring, as they sing
the exercises, with their cheeks glow-
ing, and their eyes sparkling. Oh,
they enjoy singing lessons!
T the end of the fall term, several
visits were paid us by a member
ofthe School Board, rule in hand, Who
promised us double windows. But
the chilly winds still roam through
the school-rooms at their own sweet
will, and still we hover round the ra-
diators, and sit on them to keep them
EBATES are supposed to occur
two or three times in a term, but
the fall term passed with only one.
Those debates are very useful to us in
the way of teaching us to collect our
thoughts and put them into shape for
utterance, and also in giving' us what
we lack in the way of self-confidence.

over ou1' books all the morning, to go
through a part of thc movements.
Sometimes it is rather amusing to

a boy will turn to the right, and after
looking greatly surprised at the evi-
dent mistake of the school, will turn
to the left, in the meantime. looking'
about to see if his mistake has been
noticed. Or, at the connnand, "Heels
lift!" a girl will sometimes lose her
balance and suddenly pitch forward
upon an unfortunate neighbor in a
manner anything but graceful. .But
excepting these mishaps, and a few
others, such as hitting the desk rath-
er forcibly with our knuckles, or re-
ceiving a blow on the back or arms
from a well-meaning neighbor, we im-
prove quite rapidly, and certainly en-
joy it immensely.

T Christmas the school was very
pleasantly surprised by receiving
from Mr. B. S. Soule, a graduate of
the school, Shepp's XVorld's Fair Pho-
tographed. This gift is very much
appreciated by the scholars, and is
often seen in their hands.

I have been asked to write a few
lines for the Clarion, and as I was
wondering what subject to choose, my
thoughts turned to tho present Senior
class, and I decided to send them a
few words of greeting through the
columns of the school paper.
f It is nearly two years since I enter-
ed Freeport High School as a teach-
er. NVhile my recollections of all the
scholars are very pleasant, and such
as I shall always cherish, there are
none of whom I have pleasanter mem-'
ories than the present senior class,
then the third class, or by the name
I remember best, the " Caesar class."
How plainly I can recall the mem-
bers-.vf the class just as they looked
the lirst day we took possession of the
new recitation room. I think the
room received more attention that day
than the Latin, though I presume
that 'was the teacher's fault. I-Iow
you all did struggle with Caesar! It
was not a struggle in vain either, for
I know you conquered at last and in
a fair and open war. Of your troub-
les with Geometry I knew but little,
though I heard much, but having
once taken the study myself you had
my sincerest sympathy.
IVith the spring term my connec-
tion with the school ended, though
I did not lose my interest in it, nor in
my favorite class.
More than a year has passed, and
now you have gained what you have
been working for so long. You form
the senior class of your school.
I congratulate you on having so
nearly finished your course.
To desire a good education is no
mean ambition 5 and to obtain it is
finding' a mine of wealth.
You have broader views, nobler im-
pulses, and life seems far more real
and grand than it would without

It was winter, and I was sitting' in
an arin-clmir, before ai warm tire, while
my room-mate lay near me on zi, lo unge,
snoring' in :L way that would make a
nervous person go crazy.
Suddenly the snoring seemed to me
to change to a sound resembling' the
noise of the paddle-wheels of a steam-
er g and ixna,gg'ine my surprise when I
found that the noise eznne from the
table, which stood in the centre of
the room and whose sides were llap-
ping like wings.
It slowly advanced to :ny chair, and
:Lt the some time an uinsontrollahle
desire to get upon the table seized
me. So without more ado, I sprang
upon it. At this, it started at :L ter-
rilie rote, for the open :i.i1', and I
found myself ascending into the clear
heavens, almost before I knew it.
The table was gliding' along, using'
its sides as wings and then on investi-
gation, I discovered that hy using my
foot, I could steer it in any direction

full, I steered for and rapidly ap-

it. As I drew near, the light, at
first was blinding, but soon my eyes
became used to the light, and I steered
for asmall clump of bushes on alnank.
Here I landed and after tying my
table with a shoe-string, which I had
with nie, I started out on my tour of
inspection. As I proceeded, I noticed
that everything was the color of gold,
this probably being the cause of the
great brilliancy of the moon. As I was
thoughtfully regarding a large yellow
stone, and speculating as to its value,
I was dumfounded to behold some-
thing step from the bushes at my
right. On looking closer, I beheld a
and with eyes, that were so small as to
be hardly discernable. But I was more
surprised when this queer individual
addressed me in pu1'e English, and
demanded who I was. I told him,
then asked him concerning the inhab-
itants of this queer place. lvithout
answering, he told me to follow him,
and led me to a large house, which
turned out to be the abode of the
person, with very long hair,
After being introduced to all pres-
ent, I was shown around by the king,
who then informed me I could stay on
the moon but twenty-four hours, as I
would be burned if I stayed longer.
So, after a pleasant stay of about six
hours, I was accompanied by the
king back to the place where I had
landed. A.sI approached the clump
of bushes, to my horror, I discovered
that the table l1ad broken loose, the
string not being strong enough to
hold it, and had left me alone on the
moon. Knowing that my case was
desperate, I turned to the king and
asked his advice. He acknowledged
that he could see no escape for me, but
he said that in live hours the moon
would be within 30,000,000 miles of
the earth, and that, if I wished, I
could try to jump the distance.
Always noted for my jumping abil-
ities, I determined to make the at-
tempt, though the chance of success
seemed small. At the right time, I
prepared myself for the great leap.
At the word, I sprang with all my
might into the air. I seemed to
whirl through space and then struck.
Crash! I opened my eyes. lVhere
was I? I was lying on the door with
the table' between me and my chair.
My room-mate was standing in the
door-way laughing at me.
In answer to my question, he said
that while sleeping in my chair, I had
suddenly leaped from the chair over
the table, and the lamp on the table,
and struck upon the hard floor. The
lamp and table together made it a leap
of fully seven feet. So I am, really,
the champion jumper, but on account
of my modesty I have never before let
that fact become known.

The advantages of a High School
education have formed the subject of
many a themeg and it is generally ad-
mitted, I think, that those advantages
consist not so much in the additional
knowledge that we gain as in the
broadened views and ideas of life, and
increased ability to understand the
10 'run omnion.
lessons that our future life shall bring.
Yet as those of us who are fortu-
nate enough to obtain a High School
training stand upon the graduation
platform, how apt we are to feel our
student days forever past, to say to
ourselves that we have spentsuflicient
time in the drudgery of study, and
that henceforth the " practical" affairs
of life may claim our whole attention.
Some will continue their studies in
College, while a few will devote their
whole lives to professional, literary,
or other intellectual pursuits, but few
indeed are they that do this from any
motive other than the furtherance of
their own p1'ivate interests. Of still
greater significance, however, is the
fact that the great majority of per-
sons, unable to obtain other than a
common school education -or lack-
ing, perhaps, even this - yield with-
out eiiort to the force of circum-
stances, and refuse to spend even an
occasional leisure hour in the thanli-
less and unprolitable occupation of
acquiring'knowledge. True, the high-
er education is looked upon in a far
diiferent light to-day than lifty years
ago. The College, or even High
School, graduate is admitted to pos-
sess an advantage, in whatever line of
work he may select, over a person of
equal natLu'al ability but devoid of
such trainingg but the prevalent feel-
ing of the American people upon this
subject seems still to be that mental
development is merely a private ad-
vantage, to be secured if convenient,
nothing more. Those even who en-
dure great hardship and privation to
pass four years within College halls
to often aim only at obtaining' a more
advantageous position in the race for
lint to-day a great awakening' is
taking place in the world of thought.
Many a cherished conviction of the
past is fading away before 'the radi-
ance of higher ideals and nobler con-
ceptions of life and duty than man
has ever known. More and more
loudly the voice of his better nature
is sounding the great new truth which
heralds the dawn ofa Higher Civiliza-
tion: YW? Ml'LI9I,i7lfj of llumcm- Lift'
is lfumcm P1'og9'12s.v. The object of
each individual existence is the wel-
fare of the nation and the world.
The application of this principle
places education upon an eminence of
which we may never have dreamed,
for we can fullil this duty unto others
only by developing' to the fullest ex-
tent our environment will permit all
the possibilities that lie within our-
selves. This does not mean that we
a1'e to devote no time to recreation
and exercise, does not mean that we
should allow study hours to interrupt
our relations with family and friends,
does not mean that it is a duty we
owe others to become versed in Latin
and G-reelc, Chemistry and Trigonom-
etry. It signifies simply that we are
to develop ourselves, morally, mental-
ly, and physically, for the common
good, not submissively yielding' to a
fancied fate, but making' the cultiva-
tion of our higher faculties one of oin-
great life tasks, sustaining its due
proportion to the rest.
The lessons of High School and
College, and far more, may all be
'run CLARION. 11
mastered by those of us who have nev-
er spent an hour within those institu-
tions, merely by employing a portion
of the time we daily waste.
The theory that self-education isa
duty we cannot avoid is, however,
drawn from the proposition that we
are to live only for the good of our
fellow men, and as we are still hesi-
sponsibilities which this truth in-
to acknowledge the vast re-
volves, let us test it in its practical
application to the subject in hand.
The crying necessity of the hour is a
moral and intellectual activity that
shall be in some proportion to this
tremendous material advancement of
the present age. We can perceive the
need in every phase of our national
life. The American Republic was es-
tablished amid conditions which call-
ed forth the strongest emotions and
the noblest impulses that ever thrill-
ed in the heart of any people. Its
very foundation was the most exalted
conception of Liberty and Justice that
the accuiirulated intelligence of ages
past could form. But as it was built
upon such a spirit, upon the continu-
ance of that spirit its stability and
permanence must depend. Each one
of its myriad sovereigns is individual-
ly responsible for the welfare of all.
Nvllfzll we each accept this great re-
sponsibility and strike hands for the
common good, then will g.rovernment
of, for, and by the people be realized
in theory and in fact.
But in the midst of our enjoyment
of the :ulvantagns won for us at the
cost of many an heroic life laid down
on the iields of the Revolution, we
have already drifted far from our an-
cient ideals. All the energies of a
growing nation have been concentrat-
ed upon material things, until we
now find ourselves all but incapable
of managing the complicated social
machinery we have constructed. If
our boasted Republic is to outlive the
perils which it must surely face, we
must fit ourselves to peiform the
great duties we have assumed. lVe
must study, conscientiously and care-
fully, not dead languages and higher
mathematics, but the great principles
that envelop and permeate every libre
of our national life. Vile are not to
blindly follow the leadership of un-
scrupulous politicians, but are to ac-
quaint ourselves with the laws of So-
cial and Political Science, and by
these form opinions of our own that
shall be sincere and freeg are not to
curse the stupidity and lack of patri-
otism ofthe men we have placed in
our Legislatures, while we Surrey our
votes to be nulliiied by the vfiles of

the ignorant, vicious, and criminal
classes of our population, but are to

sistible force the corruption which

that we may comprehend the ever
increzising' obligations revealed by
an advancing' civilization 5 chftrftcter,
that we may live the truths we
know. We are all moulded 1at1'g'e1y
by our environment, yet I believe
there is not one of us that cannot
make his life in some degree better
and truer and nobler, if he will. And
when We consider that by the sum
total of our own characters we are de-
termining that of the coming' gener-
ation, for better or for worse, we may
faintly imagine what possibilities this
fact contains. Let us cnet :tside our
childish dependence upon unyielding'
fate, and realize that, small though
they seem, our own thoughts me
deeds to-day shall build for us our fu-
tures, and shall make humanity the
nobler or the bztser throughout the
endless years. In the studies of "The
Higher School," our faint recognition
of this great truth shrill be qnickened
into the btuning fire of imp ulse, until
we all may be enabled to leuvechar-
rtcters purer and nobler than ourselves

heritage to men and women yet un-
born. An infinite opportunity is
present to us every one. The re:-sult
of our action will be at good or an evil

that action manhood and wonmnhood
must meet their suprerne test.

NVhen the class of '97 entered the
Freeport High School, it numbered
in all, thirty-three, twenty-three girls
and ten boys. Since then our num-
ber has somewhat decreased, owing
to sickness and cold weather, but
chiefly to the fact that some are pur-
suing their studies in the district
schools during the winter term and
will join ns in the spring.
'We follow the example of our pre-
decessors by entering upon our work
with great zeal, our favorite study
seems to be Higher English, perhaps
because it is the easiest. Latin we
also find very interesting. Under the
guidance of Mr. Morse, we are mak-
ing good progress in Algebra.

" Friends must part.
The strongest ties must be broken."
We mourn the death of our class-
mate, Lina Soule Cushing, who
passed to her heavenly home. March
9th, aged 16 yrs. 10 mos. The last
day of the winter term Lina was at
school, took the examinations with
the rest of her class, and went home
feeling light hearted to think the
examinations were over. Little did
she or any of her classmates think it
was the last time she would enter the
dear old school house. She had very
satisfactorily completed the three
years and two terms of the course,
her rank being one of the highest of
the class. Lina was looking' forward
with pleasure to the time when she
could repay her mother.
It does not seem to us as though it
could be right, for so good, ambitious
and young a girl to be taken awayg
hut our Heavenly Father knows best
and it is all for her good. Lina was
always faithful to her studies and
never caused her teachers any trouble
School had been closed about a week
when news came to us that Lina was
sick g we did not want to believe that
she was dangerously sick, hut death
always comes when least expected,
and in a few days the crisis came.
Everything was done to save her but
of no avail, and Friday just as the
morning' began to dawn, she hreatliecl
her last. The teachers and as many
of the scholars as possible attended
the funeral. The llowers were many,
showing the high esteem in which she
was held. Next term will he a sad
one, for Lina will not,be seen in her
accustomed placeg but we must look
on the bright side, trusting and be-
lieving' that when we are called from
this eaith, to the realms beyond, we
will then see our dear classmate.
Sometime, when all life's lessons have heen learned,
And sun and stars Iorevermore have set.
The things which our weak jumlgnieul here has spurned-
'l'lie things o'er which we grieve with lashes wot-
Will flash belorc us out ol' lifes dark night
As stars shine most in deep tinls ol' hlue:
Anrl we shall see how all Uori's plans were ripglit
And how what seemed reproot' was love most true.
And we shall shortly know that lcngtln-ned breath
ls not the sweetest gift Gorl sends his friencl,
And that sometimes the sable pall ol' death
Conceals the hiirest boon I-Iis love can send.
And if, through patient toil we reach the land
Where tired feet, with sandals loosm-rl may rest.
When we shall clearly know and understand,
I think that we shall say that
" God knew best."
