We were l-'rc.shmcn then; and although we fully realized our importance in the ranks of the college men, yet there was within each of ns a feeling of dissatisfaction a yearning for something above that Freshman vale and beyond that overshadowing mist. Our imagination, youthful but by no means inert, pictured this coveted region as one inhabited by Sophomores alone. The existence of .Juniors and Seniors was then in spheres far beyond the conception of our imaginative powers. So there was naught for us to covet save the Sophomores land. It was a dreary day in the early autumn of 190(5 when we started on our upward journey. The ascent was steep and the mists were dense, hut with avowed determination and undaunted courage we unfalteringly climbed higher and higher, groping our way through the mists of December, March and •June, until we finally reached the summit of the hill from which we viewed the coveted land. With our backs turned on the past, we stood for a moment and feasted our eyes on the beauties of the land that awaited us in the approaching autumn. Then we cast a parting glance over the journey just ended, and it seemed to have taken onlv a dav. In the autumn of 1907 we entered that Sophomore land which wo had been permitted to see three months previous, and although our pathway was strewn with the dowers which we had seen in our vision, yet they were not without their thorns; although there were days of sunshine, et the mists did not fail to hover over and around us; and we soon realized that the enticing land which we had seen was only an entrance to a field of more uncertain fruits than the one which we had left behind. Hut in spite of the dread of these unavoidable mists, we sent our men along the paths which led to the field of athletics, to the field of oratory, and to the held of religious opportunities, in which their accomplishments were second to those of no other class in the University, We have gained the summit of a perilous ascent: we have crossed a field covered with both flowers and thorns, and now we dream of another land. But our dream is intricate and our imagination finds it difficult to con jecture even its appearance.Hrrslimau (Class Abbott, II. '1'. Allen, L. J. Ai.lkx, R. N. Rakbeu. J. E. Barber, J. VV.

They were given a hearty welcome In the Faculty ami upper classmen. Soon after their arrival the V. M. ( A. gave I hem a reception, which all of them enjoyed. The reception, and others given at the Greenville Female College, the hirst Bapist I hurcli and at the Pendleton Street Baptist Church, that most of the Freshmen attended, served in a great degree to alleviate the suffering caused by homesickness and to make them feel that they were indeed welcome to Furman and to Greenville. The members of our class had those characteristics peculiar to all freshmen. During the first few days of the session the upper classmen were engaged in discharging their obligations on behalf of the “rats.” trying to rid them of their peculiar characteristics. 'Their efforts were successful until they uufor Innately terminated in the abolition of the Semo Club. Since that most sublime order was abolished, the actions of some of the Freshmen have given evidence which has led some of the upper classmen to doubt the wisdom of the policy imposed upon them by the Faculty. Soon after they began work in earnest, the Freshmen, feeling the need of union, met and organized. 'They elected such officers as were needed. 'Then they became in reality one of the four classes that make up flu student body. 'The members of our class immediately identified themselves with almost every phase of our college life. Practically all of them joined one of the two literary societies; most of them identified themselves with the V. M. C. A. work; many of them have taken an active part in all forms of athletics, and the class is also represented in the Glee Club. In all these, and in other phases of the work of mil institution, the Freshmen, generally sjieaking. have done faithful work, and they have shown that on the whole the class is made up of excellent material. Being composed of such material, men who have determined to work and win. and who take an interest in all departments of the life and activities of tin institution, -the present Freshman Class bids fair to he one of the best classes that Furman has ever developed, one that will reflect honor on its Alma Mater. u»i 111JI [Oil ": .7 • ',1 MKIH'H | iai ;. »- s- jtoiji .) joiintf xi j ;•! .•••••• is vk vii 1 "I 't'-'‘S HU 1 1 I" SIV ll ':•! ymj!’- itiiubj.ix .i .w »i}| ,I.

In that year the most earnest of the young men who were preparing for life's great I Nit tic united themselves in the pursuit of perfection in literature and public speaking. They called themselves the Adelphian Literary Society, taking the name from the Greek word meaning “Brother." They continued thus two years, holding their meetings in a hull in the city; but in 185 a division among the members was brought about by a motion that the society should change its meeting place. The minority withdrew and organized as a new society, calling themselves the Philosophinns; but the true Adelphians went on with the work they bad begun. That they did well and that their successors were worthy men is best seen by looking over the names of the Alumni of this society. 'They are: ,J. II. Hartwell, II. 'I . Cook, M. 1). Karle, II. F„ (Jeer, (’. 11. Martin, and scores of others, of whom the Adelphian Society, Furman Cniversitv and South Carolina are justly proud. 'Phe history of the society was interrupted in 18( 1 by the War Between the States. Then her brave sons went out to fight for their country. After the war many did not return, but their memory is an inspiration. Since 1865 the Adelphian Society lias been growing steadily, gaining in membership and raising the standards of literary work. I p to 1900 tin meeting-place was a room in the main building. At that time a change was made to a large room in the Judson Alumni Hall. This room was equipped with appropriate furniture, and now the society enjoys every advantage that could be offered. But there was one disadvantage. The members were annoyed by the presence of visitors at the meetings. In the spring of 1901 the society was made secret, and now there is nothing unfavorable to the best training of the members. The first exponent of the literary work of the society was The Adelphian. a semi-monthly magazine, which was established in 1889. Several years later this paper and the one published by the other society were merged and the result was The Turman Echo. The work of the Adelphians in oratory was brought before the public in 1899 when their representative won second place in the first State IntercollegiateOratorical Contest. It is interesting to note here that the Adclphian Society was largely instrumental in bringing about this annual contest among the colleges of South Carolina. There have been nine contests so far and the Adclphians have won a lirst place, two seconds and a third. The best indication of the work that is being done is in the men that are being turned out. The past is full of glory, the present is striving to surpass the past, and both foretell great things for the future. [76|1852©fturrs yhilmuH’lnau nrictu JFall arrm. HUir HUUi NV Hicks I’rrxiihnt .

Wherever J different groups of men are engaged in the same class of work tins element of competition is certain to appear. The two literary societies at Furman tniversitv have the same end. and they are both engaged in the same class of work. Hence it is very natural that there should he a spirit of rivalry between them. But we are glad to sav that it is not the “cutthroat” competition of the commercial world. It is on a higher and a broader plain. By experience we have learned that if we attain success we must do it by meriting it ourselves, not by advertising the weakness of our rivals. 'The motto of the Philosophian Society is “Kxcelsior" (Higher), and the struggle to live up to this accounts in some degree for the successful career of thi" society throughout its history. With this as its tandard, the society must ever strive for still higher things, for each forward step reveals to us vet other fields of struggle and of conquest. The society was organized in May, 18o2. Previous to Ibis time there had been only one literary society in the college. The Adelphian Society had been organized several months before. The place of meeting was a room in McBce Hall, several blocks from the Furman campus, hut near the hoarding places of the members. It was a discussion regarding the place of meeting that caused I lie disruption of the society and the subsequent organization of the Philosophian Society. A Masonic lodge held its meetings in a room just alwive that of the society. Both of these organizations met on Saturday evenings. In May, 185J2, the Mason informed the students that they must find another place of meeting, as the noise occasioned by the society was disturbing the meetings of the Masons. A warm debate followed in I he society. Some of the members thought it would he better to acquiesce to the demand of the Masons: others thought that tin Masons had overstepped their authority in making the demand, and these insisted that the society should continue to meet in the room which it had rented. I lie discussion became hitter and some ill-feeling arose. A motion to change tlie place of meeting was carried In a small majority. All who were op| osed i«-ijto this action at once resigned from flu- society. A few rlavs Inter those who had withdrawn from the Adclphian Society met on Furman campus. Here the I’hilo.-ophinn Society was organized. Mr. (J. A. Norwood took the •■.stump. ’ and after a few remarks by some of the members the organization was perfected, lor tlie rest of that session they met in the old room in Me Bee Hall. For nine years the society had n prosperous career. Then the membership decreased, and later the minutes ceased altogether. Why? We all know why. 'Flic most terrible tragedy of our history was on the stage. The Philosophians had their parts and were playing them like men. The next regular meeting wa held April it. IStifj. Many loved faces were missing from the hall. The men who hud worked faithfulh in the society had given their lives as a sacrifice on the altar of their State. Inspired by the memory of their fallen brothers, the I’hilosopliians who remained took up the work of the society with new zeal, and from then until now their record has been an enviable one. In 1889 the ociet began publishing 77a Philosophiun. Later this publication and The AttdphUtu were united to form the present monthly magazine. The h'unnnn Echo. In May. IDOL the meetings of the society became secret. It wa- found that this plan promoted a stronger brotherhood and put the society upon a broader plain. In the inler.societv debates and oratorical contests the Pliilosopbiaiis always do their work well and lake their share of ihe honors given. The literary society should hold a large place in college life, and the interest taken in it at Furman is unusual. It has often been said that the practice gained in the society hall is the most useful of the attainment' t be Imd in a college course. The Fhilosopliian Lilerarv Society has now over sixty enthusiastic members. The past is glorious; the future i bright: may the society always push on to wlu-re its motto {mints Higher.

On .lime 5th, following, the corner-stone was laid, and on .June 5, 1907, the building was thrown open for the inspection of the public. Some time previous to the dedication exercises, Prof. William Lyon Phelps, Ph.l)., of Vale I'niversity. delivered an address on the “I se of Hooks.” The dedication exercises, proper, consisted of the rending of the Scriptures by Dr. G. W. Gardner, of Greenwood, S. (’.; prayer by ' Rev. 1). M. Ramsay, of Charleston, S. ( (now of Richmond, Va.), and a brief state- [91]incut by I)i . 1C. M. Potent, of Furman University.

During the past summer most of the hooks and magazines were removed by the former Librarian. Mr. Sloan 1). Watkins, now of the Congressional Library, Washington. 1). from the Library room in the main building to the new Library building. So on the opening dnv of the Fall 'Perm, September 18, there was no difficulty in beginning work immediately. Two pieces of statutory, a bust of Shakespeare and a Venus de Milo, contributed by Prof. W. L. Phelps, and two bronze medallion portraits in bas-relief one of I)r. C.

We have not added very materially to the nuiithcr of our hooks this year, hut, through the kindness of friends, we have received about fifteen or twenty volumes. Our Librarian will he glad to receive any contributions in the shape of hocks, whether old or new. At present we are using our lilts of magazines very extensively in getting up material for current events, and. as we wish to have our files complete as possible, additions in this line will he most welcome. With such an incentive as this Imilding must necessarily he. we should, within a few years, have a Library that the baptists ail over the State will be proud of.

As they were thus engaged, worshiping the god Nicotine, a groom was leading up to the house before the door a powerful black horse, saddled for a lady. Carefully noticing the flashing eye, the nervous, restless limbs, and the general air of intractnblencss that invested the animal, one of the gentlemen removed his cigar from his lips and, in surprise, turned to his companions. ‘•Do you have ladies around here who can manage such an animal as that?" lie exclaimed. ‘‘Why, don’t you know? That is Mary Patterson’s horse." half a dozen voices hastened to make answer. “Ah. to he sure; you have just returned from abroad, and are not yet acquainted with the place or its visitors.” “And who is this Mary Patterson?" the first s|x akcr inquired, who was a handsome man in the prime of life, and with just the suspicion of a despot in his manner. Yet so generous and attractive was George Stevens that women always, and men generally, fancied and admired his despotism. “Mary is the belle of this place, and is the most skilled in riding, rowing, swimming and lawn-tennis of her sex along the coast." “Good heavens!” said George, mockingly, “lias it so universally come to this, that a girl’s personal value and popularity arc to he determined by the possession of such accomplishments as these?" “Kvidentlv travel has not broadened your ideas upon the subject, old fellow," laughed his friend Hart, good-naturedly. “Although Marv is fond of the open air, I know that in theory and education she is fitted to become one of the best little housekeepers alive. But you always were somewhat strict in your views concerning the prerogatives of the gentler sex." The rest of the group wen- wandering off. George and the speaker stood alone together, neither of them aware of a slim woman’s form, stationed in [98]open sight directly behind them in the door. The form was a pretty one, graceful, sinewy and perfect, from the little tight cap perched upon the chestnut-brown braids, surmounting the proud, tender, mischievous face, with its bright Wicked eyes, to the little laced boot, peeping out where the owner had gathered up the trail of her black riding-habit and flung it across her arm. Sari, turning to bin frirttft rxrlutmrh. nghnnt. "Chut tuuo Iflury $Iaitrrmm Iirratlf" Fatally unconscious of this seductive apparition in the rear, George replied: “Perhaps I am. I confess there is no affinity between me and the loud, masculine young lady of the day—a young lady, for instance, who could manage such a spirited animal as that, which, I admit, is about as much as 1 should care to do myself. To me there is nothing so charming as a womanly woman—one possessing the old-fashioned graces of our grandmothers.” During the last moment the flush had deepened in the pretty girl's cheek, and her bright eyes sparkled dangerously. Then, tightening her grasp upontlu- pearl handle of her riding-whip, she sped past the two men. ran down the steps to her lior.se, and had vaulted lightly into the saddle and was dashing away before they had fully realized her recent presence. Hart, turning to his friend, exclaimed, aghast: “That was Marv Patterson herself, and she must ha e heard all that we said.” As George’s eyes followed the lithe, straight figure of Mary, who sat erect on her horse like a statue, his countenance expressed the deep vexation he felt at his awkward situation. Meanwhile, fts Man was riding rapidly over tlu country road, her pretty cheeks were growing hotter and hotter with anger. “That must have been the wonderful George Stevens over whom everybody is growing wild.” she muttered, after she had brought her mettled horse down to the proper gait. llorri«l wretch! I only hope he will get enough of his namby-pamby sort cf girls of his womanly woman. As for me. I'll have nothing to do with him.” 'Phut evening, at the hall, Mary was introduced to the lion of the day, George Stevens, and experienced somewhat of pleasure in witnessing the embarrassment which that gentleman cmdd not wholly conceal. "I must apologize for my untintcntional rudeness of this morning." he said, lowly, as soon as they were alone; “for I fear you overheard my remarks to Mr. Hart.” “Oh, dear me, it doesn't matter in the least,” said Mary, quite indifferently, her little head rather in the air. “Yet, for the sake of the rest of my sisterhood the loud young ladies- I must say that I don't sec why we haven't ns much right to try to save our lives bv learning to swim and row, and handle a fiery horse, as a man.'' As Mary delivered herself thus, George stared at her as hcldly as politeness would fieniiit. He had been accustomed to having his attentions accepted with more appreciation by the ladies be deigned to honor with them. That beautiful, indifferent, Imlf-sarcastic fact into which he was looking, aroused in him a peculiar sensation altogether new. He continued to stare at her for a moment, then shrugged bis shoulders, while a half-smile struggled about bis lips, lie was thinking that this unconventional attitude was only to be expected in a “masculine ’ voting lady, and Mary was not slow in thus mterpictiug it. “The perversity of »nen is something beautiful!" she continued, with n fine sarcasm. “They prate of the weak lungs and slim waists of fashionable women; and now that athletics have become popular for them, and we arc given nil opportunity for physical development, they sneer at that. Ah, here comes my friend! Kxcuse me: 1 have given him this waltz." L o)o]And George was left alone, with the unusual sensation of Slaving !htii snubbed and neglected by a very pretty woman. ‘‘Little virago! he imitteml. “Yet, b George! she doesn’t argue badly. 1 never did look at the subject in that light.” Two months passed, and though Mary and George had. by mutual consent, avoided each other, vet, long before that time had expired, the friends of both had discovered that between them a strong passion existed. About that time Mary was driving alone one day along a country road when she saw before her George's buggy, drawn by his thoroughbred horses, behind which were seated himself and one of the seaside belles, who was Mary’s exact opposite. elm! rbrniny a! the ball, fHary urns intruhurrb to thr lion of tl»r bay—C roryr trurna It happened that at the instant she caught sight of them one of the horses took fright, shied, and the next moment the team was sweeping down tin road at a fearful pace.

Instead, she began screaming violently, which increased the horses’ fright; attempted to jump from the buggy, and in preventing her, thus dividing his attention.

Springing out of her buggy, she promptly tied her horse to a tree and joined the two who had thus been brought to grief. “Stop that noise this instant." she said, in a low authoritative voice to the limp, but still shrieking pile of lace and silk in George's buggy. “Don't you see that you are frightening the horses?'" Then, passing on to (ieorge. she murmured, with a low laugh. “Now. if you did not detest unwomanly women I might be of assistance to you." The color swept into his face.

Tbe expression of George' countenance as, later, he drove hack to the hotel, attested the existence of conflicting emotion in hi bosom. A key to them might have been secured in tbe words that at last broke from hi lip . “Is she always to get the better of me?" be exclaimed, bitterly. “Well, she has taught me one tiling that not all sensible women arc masculine. Is that all she lias taught me? I must be in my dotage, and tonight she shall give ine an hour all alone. I will grant myself I hi folly for once." Mis teeth were set, bis eyes Imd a strange light in them, as, in the evening, lie approached Mary with an invitation for her to take a sail with him. Astounded by this attention, yet that strange indefinable expression his countenance wore, forbade the girl to refuse; so silently the two sought the inlet, embarked in (icorgc's dainty little craft, and sped away over the moonlit sea. Little was said. On, and on thc sailed, each looking over the side of the boat into the water. Still the conversation seemed to lx buried deep in the sea, till at length George said it was time for them to begin their journey homeward. As they were returning, a uddcn squall capsized the boat. After the first shock of feeling the waters engulf her, Mary recovered her presence of mind and struck out pluekily for the shore, which was at no great distance. [1081After a pretty fair contest with the waves she reached her goal and looked about to see how it served her escort, expecting to see him close behind: hut to her horror she behold (Jeorgo still some distance from the shore and c ideutl utterly unable to save himself. With a face white as death, .she tiling herself again into the water, swain to his side, and with the slight aid that he was able to render, succeeded in pulling him ashore. On the beach, as she stood like a beautiful mermaid in her dripping garments, with eyes that for the first lime were downcast before him, he went up to her, and looked passionately into her face.

It has broken my arm, I think. At least, in a moment I found myself powerless. The only way I can show my gratitude is by confessing that which for weeks lias been slowly dawning upon me that I have been wrong, a conceited, prejudiced fool. I have been colder in the past than I would have been, because for some time I saw that I was growing to love you. you whom I knew scorned and disliked me—not without a just cause.

Immediately la- set to work to provide Mich a place, where the students could live comfortably and enjoy the pleasures of a home. The result of lii'' zeal was the handsome building which now adorns the campus and which I nail's the name of Montague Mali. The building was made possible through the kindness of the citizens of Greenville and the Baptist people throughout the State. Tile formal opening of Montague llall was held at the beginning of school in September, 11101 - The main feature of the occasion was a very impressive address by Col. .lames A. Hoyt, a hearty supporter of the institution'during his life. II was also at this time that the Mall was given the name which it now bears. It was so called in honor of the President's mother. Mrs. M. ('. Montague, who came to a tragic death (hiring his presidency. Since its erection Montague Hall has been the happy home of the boys who come to Furman in search of an education. Many friendships have been formed in this building, and life ha been made pleasant by the congeniality which exists among the students. The atmosphere of our home has improved with the Years, and it is much more desirable now to be in the Hall with the hoys than lo hoard in a private family. The? Hall is mainly in the hands of the students, from among whom are selected a Caterer, a President, a Vice-President and a Secretary. The Caterer is chosen he the officials of the school, and he ha the heart Co operation of the students in his task of seeing after their welfare. The old men who go out from these walls always look hack with a feeling of homesickness. They may he in their father's house, hut sometimes they have a longing lo he hack at that home which they have left on old Furman campus. P « IIttra. ifl. 0. Calllirs.

Prof. Hugh C. I laynesworth was made Headmaster of the school, and performed very ctiieient service in outlining the policy of the institution. Assisted by competent instructors. Professor llaynesworth conducted a very successful school until April. 1902, when he resigned his position to take postgraduate work preparatory to occupying the ( hair of Modern Languages in the I Diversity. Prof. C. It. .Martin succeeded Mr. llaynesworth as Headmaster. Fnder his administration the original policy of the school was thoroughly maintained. After two years of service, Professor Martin also resigned to pursue his studies in Cornell I'Diversity, he having been promoted to the Chair of Latin in Furman. Since 1901 Prof. A. V. Honeycutt, who came to the school in 190‘L has been one of the Headmasters, and has served quite acceptably. From the date of its establishment the Fitting School has done excellent work. But the efficient service that might have been rendered has been hampered by two thing', viz., lack of classroom facilities, and dormitory accommodations. Realizing these facts, and foreseeing the beneficent results that would inevitably n T n • accrue to a properly conducted school of this character, the Board of Trustees, in tlu spring of 1907. decided to increase the capacity of the institution. It was upon recommendation of Prof. B. F. Geer, who for many years has taken a deep interest :n and exercised a personal watch-care over the Fitting School, that these enlargements were agreed upon. A dormitory, modern in every respect ami containing thirty rooms, was constructed; also commodious classrooms were fitter! up in the main building in the I ‘Diversity. At the same time Mr. George S. Bryan, an alumnus of Furman, and for five years Principal of the Central School in Greenville city, was made Co-Headmaster with Professor Honeycutt. Mr. C. V. Stansell. of the ( lass of ’07 (Furman), was also added to the Faculty, thus giving a teaching force sufficient to meet the needs of the increased attendance. [187]Notwithstanding these facts, including the increase of fifty per cent, in attendance of this year, the Kitting School has only begun the work that it must soon accomplish. No efforts will he relaxed until the institution is placed upon an equal standing with the highest class preparatory schools of the country. The present policy is three-fold strict discipline, a high grade of scholarship, and broad culture. At the present writing the plans for another year are somewhat indefinite. In a general way. it may he said, that additional dorniitorx space u ill he provided, the teaching force increased, classrooms enlarged, and the military feature introduced; all with the view to increased capacity and more efficient service.
