(Cliaa. A. this, the twelfth uoluntr of aljr HUnilumtirHo.v. Cuas. A. SmitiiCharles A. Smith 1IARLKS A. SMITH was born in Hertford County. X. C.. January 22. 1861. 11 is father. Joseph Smith, was a farmer and on account of his largc- mindedness and whole heartedness, was highly respected and honored in the community in which he lived. “Charles A.' spent his early years on the farm and thus acquired robust health and practical knowledge of farm management. I le was sent to Reynoldson Male Institute in Gates County, X. C. Though without the necessary means, he was determined to get an education and liorrowed the money to go to W ake Forest. In 1882 lie took a B.A. at that institution and in the same year accepted the principalship of the Timmonsville (S. C.) 1 ligh School. This position enabled him soon to refund the money borrowed while in College, and left a small surplus which formed the initial investment in what was to become a successful business enterprise. On January 3. 1884. Mr. Smith married Miss Fannie L. Byrd. They have eight living children, the oldest of whom is Mrs. Judge Land, of Xorth Carolina. Resigning the work of teaching. Mr. Smith became active in promoting several important business enterprises, in all of which his success was marked. That his high order of business ability and his faithfulness in the discharge of duty were duly recognized by his fellow citizens is apparent from the list of important and responsible positions he was called upon to occupy. Among them arc: President Citizens Bank, President Timmonsville Oil Mill. President C. A. Smith Co.. President Smith-W'illiams Co. (Lake City, S. C.), and President Bank of Lynchburg (Lynchburg. S. C.). But it is along educational lines and in religious work that Mr. Smith is of the greatest worth to his community and state. In 1903 he was elected President of the South Carolina Baptist Convention and in 1905 was made Vice President of the Southern Baptist Convention. Besides being a trustee of the G. F. C. he has been chairman of Board of Trustees of Furman I’nivcrsity for several years. Two years ago lie entered the State campaign as candidate for Lieutenant Governor, to which office he was elected by a large majority. That political prestige, however, is not his chief ambition, is evidenced by his remark to a friend regarding his election to the Presidency of the State Baptist Convention: "I appreciate more highly than any. that honor conferred upon me bv my brethren of the Commonwealth Iamks Im'kmax IIai.i. oi- Sc h: ckFurman University—Its Expansion A'I' THK Commencement of June. 1907. an alunnnis who had not visited the institution for a number of years said, “Things do not look as they did when I was a student here." Then he proceeded to remark, "W e had only this old building, and the boys lived in lx arding houses off the campus.” At the end of the Civil War Captain Patrick taught a preparatory department in the large front room in the west end of the main building, and Dr. Furman and his three or four professors taught the college classes in the other rooms of the main building. They could not foresee the development of the succeeding forty years. Indeed there was almost no expansion until 18X5, when, by the successful agency of K. II. Griffith, a considerable Endowment Fund was raised. In 1888 the first additional building (Judson Cottage) was put up. and a short while after this Griffith Hall, which tor several years was the home of the Fitting School boarding students. Today there are sixteen buildings on the campus, including several small cottages, and eleven of these are in constant use in the work of the University. Since 1897 six buildings have been erected and three of these since 1906, viz.: the Library Building, the new Fitting School Domitory and the James C. Furman Hall of Science. Some of the Distinguished Ai.vmni This extended enlargement of the material equipment docs not necessarily insure better work than was done in the earlier days. A glance at the list of the Alumni will show that from the beginning Furman University has maintained an exalted ideal of scholarship. The very first class to graduate gave to Southern Baptists their hero missionary. Rev. J. It. Hartwell, recently deceased, and to the South Carolina Brotherhood the incomparable John G. Williams. It will not be considered invidious to name these men. or others, who. from the earlier days, by their achievements and general worth, have added to the luster of Furman's name. The class of 1856 gave to us Col. R. B. Watson, of Ridge Springs, S. C.. the apostle of sunshine, and the pioneer peach grower of South Carolina; Jas. X. Nash, attorney and teacher, of Atlanta. Ga.. and V. 11. Perry, who represented bis district in Congress. . Space will not allow 11s to comment upon these classes year by year, but it will be news to many among us to know that Furman University has furnished professors to Cornell. Rutgers, Chicago University, Johns I Iopkins University. Richmond College, Wake Forest College. Clemson College, the State Normal School of Washington. Mercer University (including its president), Judson College (its president), Howard College, Liberty College (its president), Baylor University and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Probably the foremost living Sanskrit scholar is an alumnus of Furman University, Maurice Bloomfield, of Johns Hopkins University, while another alumnus, John, 0M. Manly, of Chicago I University, stands at the head of English scholarship in the United States. Editors, lawyers, physicians, missionaries, teachers, preachers, legislators, civil engineers, merchants and planters—the time would fail us to appraise the value of the contribution in manhood which Furman University has made to the good of the State, the nation and the world. This Present Day Obligation The splendid record of the past enjoins upon us. as no mere exhortation could do. the obligation of maintaining in the enlarged Furman of today the ideals and the spirit of the earlier years. Who arc the men upon whom this rcs| onsibility rests? The present Faculty, of course; and we wish we could introduce these men. one by one. to all our Baptist people. In their special training for the positions which they occupy they represent Harvard, Yale, Johns Hopkins. Cornell, Colby, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania. University of Virginia, University of W isconsin, in this country, and Cambridge (England), Paris. (France), Lcipsig and Berlin. (Germany), abroad. It will be seen that these men are fully competent to maintain the standard set by Furman, Judson. Reynolds and Edwards. The Arts degrees offered by the University today are standard and represent a sound liberal education. Four Links ok Expansion There arc four lines of expansion which lie before us. calling us to increased devotion to the largest single enterprise conducted in common by the Baptists of South Carolina. These are, viz.; ist. Endowment; 2nd, Loan Fund; 3rd, Course of Study; and 4th. .Yew Buildings. Of course expansion in these lines will be accompanied by a steady, but we hope not too rapid, increase in the number of students. The present endowment amounts to about $220,000.00. This looks like a large sum, but it is still inadequate to the enlarged needs of the institution. We need at once a gymnasium, to which a single subscription of §1.000.00 has already been received. This is the next necessity. It must be closely followed by a Social Center building for the use of the Y. M. C. A., and by a new dormitory to accommodate 150 more students. Another full professor in History and Political Science is an immediate and pressing necessity. So that it will be necessary for us to press on with the endowment of the institution as rapidly as possible to the §500.000.00 mark. With the increase of the student body, which this material expansion will certainly secure, it will be increasingly necessary to provide aid for worthy young men who have brains and pluck, but no money. At present our available loan fund, for others than ministerial students, amount to about §3,000.00, and only the interest of some of this money can be distributed. The ideal plan for aiding the 10young men is to lend them, without interest, sufficient money to put them through, the loans to hear interest from the date of their graduation. In this way a considerable capital could he invested in the best ol all securities, viz.: manhood. A sum of $20,000.00 could be administered by the Faculty in this way in the very noblest service of the Kingdom of Christ. The New Liiikaky Building The new Library Building was opened for inspection on June 5, 1907. It represents, in cost and endowment, an addition of $38,000.00 to our plant. It has been much admired bv all who have seen it. In interior finish and general • n appointments for library purposes, it is probably unsurpassed in South Carolina. Its one remaining need is Hooks! Hooks! Hooks! These arc being purchased by the Faculty as rapidly as the funds will allow. Several classes of the Alumni have already sent in contributions for the purchase of lxjoks. There is no directer way in which the Alumni can help the institution just now than in gathering class contributions for the purchase of books. James C. Furman Hau. of Science The James C. Furman Hall of Science was formally opened January i«S. 1912. This building represents $50,000.00 for construction and equipment and S25.cxxj.oo added to the endowment. It is the consummation of plans that run back through six years. At the session of the Baptist Convention held in Spartanburg in 1906. a propostion from the General Fducation Hoard of New York was submitted. This proposition was to add $25,000.00 to the endowment of Furman l’nivcrsit on two conditions: First. That $125,000.00 in cash be added to the endowment under the subscriptions of the year 1903. Second. That $50,000.00 be secured for :t Science Hall. The Convention in Spartanburg voted enthusiastically to undertake to meet these conditions. The Convention of the following year in session at hangeburg re-affirmed the action of the Convention in Spartanhmg and the campaign for funds was taken up in earnest. In February. 1908. Mr. Andrew Carnegie acceded to the appeal of Furman I Diversity for $25,000.00 towards the $50,000.00 for the building, and when the Convention assembled at I'nion in 1908, the building proposition, in the form of subscriptions for the James C. Furman Hall of Science, had been met. ne year later the Convention met in Anderson early in December, and the reports showed that subscriptions had been paid in sufficient amounts to make the final success of the Science I Tall enterprise a certainty. This certainty was sealed on December 31. 1909, under the direction of Rev. 1C I . Easterling, whose zeal and perseverance in soliciting subscriptions and in collecting money have linked his name with this building for all time. At the Commencement of 1910 the ground was broken in the presence of a large company of trustees and friends. 11In general appointment The Janies C. Furman Hall of Science is believed to be the equal of any building for similar purposes anywhere. It consists of tt;rec stories and a basement. There arc rooms for a Natural History Museum, laboratories for Physics. Chemistry, Biology ami Psychology, besides recitation rooms for Chemistry and Biology and a large general lecture room which will be in regular use for the Physics department. Each of the laboratories has a private research laboratory for the professor in charge, besides an office for the processor. The building is heated with steam and equipped with desks and tables and apparatus of the latest designs. It will be of very general interest to the people throughout South Carolina to know that the building bears the name of the first president of the institution. I)r. James C. Furman, and that in the hallway, near the cast entrance, is a bronze mural tablet in memory of I )r. Furman. The tablet was suggested by Rev. R. Y. Sanders, D.D., and contributed to by the friends of Dr. Furman. These have united to pay the cost of it. The tablet reads as follows: "In memory of James Clement Furman. D.D.. President 1844-1879. Professor 1844-1891. At a crisis in 1868 Dr Furman was admonished to abandon the institution. His reply was. 'I will nail my colors to the mast of the old ship and if she goes down I will go with her.' " The opening exercises were memorable by the unveiling of this tablet any by an able address by Rev. E. C. Dargan. D.D., of Macon. Ga.. on the Life and Work of Dr. James C. Furman. Another notable address was that delivered by President W. L. Poteat. of North Carolina, on "The Teaching of Science l.’nder Christian Auspices. ' The occasion, as a whole, was one long to be remembered bv the friends of Furman, as it certainly marks a new era in the history of the institution. Tin-: Living Endowment Union In June. 1908. the Living Endowment Union was organized, and today there is listed in this form the sum of $43,000.00. On this amount 252 members agree to pay five per cent per annum. The subscriptions range from $50.00 to $2,000.00, and the annual payments from $2.50 to $100.00. From this source and from Current contributions of the churches the treasurer received in 1911 $3,055.03. I11 June. 1911. the Trustees voted to undertake an addition of $100,000.00 t the General Endowment. In October, following, the General Education Board of New York made an offer of $25. xx . x towards this $100,000.00. They agree to give this $25,000.00 on condition that wc secure, by July 31. 1914. in legally valid subscriptions. $75,000.00. the same to be paid in four annual payments. On January 1, 1912, Rev. M. V. McDuffie, the new Field Secretary of the University, went to work under this proposition. Mis reports for the first two months show gratifying progress. 12As soon as the income will allow, it is proposed to reorganize tile departments of Philosophy and History, with a Professor of Philosophy and Education and a Professor of History and Political Science, and to add to the full Professorships in Chemistry and Physics a full Professor of Biology. A Cam. and a Chau.enge The facts here brought together constitute a call and a challenge. The South Carolina Baptist State Convention has here a great enterprise in its hands: a great and growing and quite incalculably useful enterprise of fundamental and essential importance to the progress of our people. It enshrines as no other enterprise does or can ever do the traditions and spirit of our history in this State: the great names of that history are forever linked with Purmah University. These great spirits of the past who rule us from their urns and who invested here their love and prayers and gifts, invite us of the present generation to join them in their service of all coming generations by like investment of love and prayer and gifts. A prosperity such as they never saw has dawned upon us: resources beyond their dreams are at command. And they challenge us to do with our means as well as they did with theirs. Men and women of South Carolina who love Christ and their fellows can win no surer title to the gratitude and veneration of coming generations than by linking their names with Furman University, and joining hands to make the University what the opening future demands. As compared with such a use of our resources the building of private fortunes is despicable indeed, which, as Mr. Andrew Carnegie has lately said, "ministers not to any taste worthy of man.” Surely the time cannot be far off when individuals, some of whom are reading this article, will, of their own judgment as to wise investements. and without solicitation, put their thousands into Furman University. Of all such we may be sure that generations to come will rise up and call them blessed. —Written by President Pote nt 13Dxuriin ! xiv BOARD OF TRUSTEES With Expiration of Terms of Service Charles A.

A ship of royal make is she, And brings her treasures from afar, Her truth it is that makes us free, And shines her beacon like a star. ’Twas Furman’s hand that laid her keel, And Judson set her ribs of steel; The Fathers, prayerful for our weal, Launched our dear Alma Mater. A mother gentle, fair and wise, And grave with weight of storied lore, She greets us with love’s radiant eyes, And chains our hearts forevermore. Old Furman! grateful sons are we, Our love, our lives we give to thee; We’ll keep faith’s vow to serve but thee, Our own dear Alma Mater. -EDWIN M. ROTE AT 21THE VOICE OF THE MOUNTAIN A youth was once climbing the mountain height. Driven by love of the splendor and light Which covered the mountain seen afar. 1 le said, "I will go as a strong active boy To dare and to do and to have all the joy That comes to the man who follows his star." And the mountain was fair. Touched with a majesty wondrous and rare; With her myriad changings of light and shade, Deep gorges and peaks all splendidly made. She rose like a joy in the cool, piercing air. The way was hard, but the youth had no fright: And though pleasure soon faded away from his sight. And the splendor was lost in a misty haze, lie pressed for the honor of glories And applause of men for the difficult deed, lie said "I will go through the mist and the maze To dare and to do and receive all the praise. For tis mine to stand on the mountain height. .Mine by my strength and my will decreed." I hit the mountain rose high. Rearing her form in the depths of the sky; And her difficult passes and ways untaught With treacherous guile and dangers fraught Called for the spirit to do or to die. lie pressed for the goal, but forever the height Still spread to the heavens away Horn his sight. Twas cold, and the barren and slippery waste Stung the dull sense to a throbbing fright; For down far below him in silent haste Upward were pressing the shades of the night. Me thought of the hollowness, then of the fame. Whose glory he strove for, while a voice Tingled his ears with a curse on his choice. It said: “To gain what thou wishes!, an honored name. Thou must will to go through the shadows and shame. To toil and endure for the cause of right. To throw in the darkness a shaft of light. To dare and to do and to take all the blame.” And the mountain was cold. Chilled by his spirit so thoughtlessly bold: Her glories she held from his selfish ken. And turned all her treasure to other men. hose eyes afar off could en joy her gold. — Gkokck W. CoxThe Bonhomie Officers of the Annual Association I M.

Boyd has a very receptive mind; he always answers to the roll-call, and never fails to answer the questions asked him. If he continues his propitious career, we shall all l e proud of him.

Put we could talk indefinitely. Our enthusiasm must he restrained. After the following quotation from Sidney Lanier concerning us. we will give a brief sketch of the individual members of the class. Out from the hills of a thinker's road. Down the dark valleys of woe, They hurry amain the diplomas to gain And learn what the wise men know; Fall into teachers' paths of pain. Study and worry or shine or rain, Fall into habits which teachers chide. And run into trouble on every side With the student's pain the goal to attain Far from the hills of a thinker’s road. Far from the valleys of woe. All down the hills of a thinker's road. All through the valleys of woe. The zeros cried, .Abide, abide, And Iliden Cox loved to lay them low And under Bradshaw numbers died, While Martin and Cook were crying Slay. And Jackson gave lessons which worked delay: Pot’s Bible sighed, el bide, abide, Here in the hills of a flanker's road, Here in the valleys of woe. High o'er the hills of a thinker’s road.

At almost any time, you can hear him singing. "You are not the only Turtle in the Tank.” Some student, he is. in all college work.

Like drops of lambent flame about to blend in one. rounding 59themselves with purple splendor to a crimson sphere, and the earth did quake, and ever since he has caused a stir wherever lie i found, lie is always anxious to stick his prominent nasal propensities into everything that happens.

Cy” was born red headed, and so it is no fault of his that his flaming head-gear may be seen and recognized amongs’t all others on the campus, lie is very studious in all lines of college work except text-hi oks. and he does not allow these books to interfere with other college duties. "Cy" takes special interest in all Freshmen, and is noted for the levity with which he applies the razor strop to their exterior portions, lie has many faults.'but when we take into consideration that he hails from Laurens, these are easily overlooked. V. '1'. Brown. "Bill” is another representative from the Central High School. While at this noble institution of learning he received the soubriquet of "mule;" luckily, however, he is not of the species of the kicking and braying mule, nor has he such extraordinarily large ears. “Bill" is always in a good humor and makes friends with every one. He has high base-baliic aspirations. I lis two most usual ways of riding are "Bike" and "Jack." A. I). Burnett. As Greenwood is noted for its production of great sports, we can easily account for our noble friend "A. 1)." It is known that he is a heart-smasher among the bonnie lasses, and "A. I)." always speaks of his favorite lass as "she’ or "her." never daring to mention her name for fear of making a rival. 'Phis gentleman is also a great day-dreamer, though his dreams are usually limited to his associates among the opposite sex. (». X. Burnett. But how is this for a music lover, lie sits in his room and listens to the rats in the wall, and is enraptured as he says. "With the tinkle 01 the tiny feet over the rafters, and the drip. drip. drip, of the snow melting on the roof ()h that's music unsurpassed in music." lie actually goes to the Casino to see the "pictures." and after returning home, his invariable reply to the question asked as to what he saw. is. "Ah that music." His career as a musician will be one of a very interesting nature, since he has such a good ear for "Casey Jones." "Steamboat Bill." and other classical music. W. P. (‘arson, commonly know as "Slim Jim." on account of his standing head and shoulders above all other members of his class, is prominent in base ball circles, tennis, galology. and all other stages of college life, except class room work. "Slim Jim" loaths all nocturnal animals, especially "rats." lie would face any danger, even the "guardian angel" of the Dormitory (Prof. C-x) t tear up their beds. doG. S.

Y. Cox. A disciple of the muse of poetry, is our little friend George, who though not big in body, is a giant in intellect. Although somewhat bashful, he takes a bath in the pool of love regularly every year. This year especially have we noted the usual symptoms, and it is rumored that he has met his fate at last. "Is it so?" We do not know, but here's hoping. Let us sum him up in these few words: “Little of body, but big of brain. Lover of poetry, admirer of dames.” Y. M. Craig. Dear old "Moon!” Who is it from the boot-black up to the | olicemen. to whom this runt is not well known. I las he any follies? Well— yes. They are as numerous as the inhabitants of his home town, are few. And speaking of Anderson—in which village he resides for a few months each year— we are instantly reminded of Craig’s most conspicuous long-drawn-out shortcomings. ( u every occasion, regardless of circumstances, this aforementioned imp shouts. “Anderson's my town." “Moon" is especially noted for his ability in managing the “best base ball team in the State." and infinite talent along social lines. “Shine on old Moon and may your rays never be eclipsed." William fames I.cgg Fcaster was born of parents in or near the thriving city of Union. "Lcggs” has often been complimented on account of his girlish tenor voice, by the constant use of which he persecutes us all both day and night. He is also a great orator and has won much fame along this line. Mis long suit, however, is his plump cheek and rosy complexion, which causes many girls to mistake him for a member of their own sex. 'Phis enables him to make love to all the girls before they are aware of his intention. “Lcggs” is very dogmatic, also an embryonic clergyman. M. C. Hester. Just to he fair about “Luck" he is not over thirty—and. not much under. Ever since he arrived at Furman he has been in competition with "Dig” Smith for the track team. "Buck" believes in a good foundation, as to his feet. Then. Buck’s hair is not exactly black, and he has the opportunity and privilege of keeping warm biscuits at the table, as he serves them on his head. Some of the boys say that lie never gets cold. Watch Buck, lie'll make a career. 61L. I . Kirhv. "A moment." what have we here? It is our old friend from Princeton. S. C.' lie has been journeying along tins rough road of time since February itf. 1884. lie has the distinction of being the only benedict, and our class should feel highly elated over entering such a conspicuous figure on the roll. Nature has been very good to him. and has endowed him with a commanding figure and a head full of Math. W ith Rev. before his honored name. Kirby is destined to do much good in this old world. As we take a look over our class-mates we find one Robert (ircenc Lee. from Port Mill. S. C. “Boh" is one of the best writers and hardest students in college, lie is respected by lx th faculty and students. “Rob" van do as much work as the next one. and when it comes to getting off a joke, he is the man of the hour, lie has decided to proclaim to the world that “The Way of the transgressor is hard." W e expect Boh to become a great author and startle the world with some great ideas. I,. M. Lidc.

May his efforts all he successful, for if hide remains true to Lidc. they will he worthy ones. I). T. Long. Behold! we see before us in dread array- no. it i only Dave Long. 11 is name suits him. for lie is the most diminutive member of our class, not in intellect—ah no—ask Dave anything you want t know, and von know it. if you try to find out hard enough. Dave is fond of public speaking, in fact he always captivates his audiences when lie doesn't put them to sleep. I le also has a very extended ability as a ladics'-man. When "Dave" comes on the scene let all others get into the shade, for “Shorty" takes the eye of the fairer sex. K. W. Machcu. What is that I hear resounding down the hall? Oh! I have it now. It is mir friend “Mach" at his usual occupation, singing "rags." The words go something like this: "Aint it gash-hang hard to find the girl?" Right there in that line we have a good sketch of "Mach." 11 is a leading active member in anything pertaining to the gentler sex. and to the omission of class-work, and "Mach" has the record of giving more original excuses for cutting of classes than any other member of the Junior class. But he is from Laurens, so let's forgive him and—besides. “His heart is a wandcring His heart is not here. His heart is in Florida A-chasing a dear.” 62G. C. Manguin, an interesting specimen of humanity, was brought into this world August 28. 1884. "G. C.,“ as he is called, hailed from the little village ot Augusta. Ga. lie is said to have arrived on this old planet yelling, and he lias been yelling ever since. I le entered Furman with all the characteristics of a loud student. Our old friend has many line qualities; besides being good looking, as lie says. "1 am too cute to live.” We expect to hear great things from G. C." because lie is a hard worker and a conscientious student. L. I). Mitchell. There was a man sent from Princeton. S. C.. who became known about the campus as “Preacher." He joined the class of 1913 in the “chase for a dip." He is a peculiar coni| ound. and in all his dealings with his fellow students is a typical divine, but when it comes to I)r. Cook’s Greek, he cannot pull through without being hitched up with a "jack.” “Preacher" is a very sporty looking fellow, but a poor student in the art of wooing femininities. J. L. Plyler. Of all the Greenville boys, none holds a greater record than Plylcr. If he has ever been in a bad humor or not abounding in enthusiasm, it was on the one day he has been absent from the campus, during the last three years. Conscientious in his work, true to right principles, and. withal, a friendly, agreeable fellow, we believe that when the roster of successful men is called his name will be among those at the top. J. W. Plyler. “Pillions” first gave evidence of his brain jxnver in Greenville Schools. There he shared honors with no one. but since coming to Furman athletics and girls seem to have a monopoly on his gray matter. Speaking of athletics. "Pillions" throws the hammer and puts the shot gallantly, and runs like a male "Atalanta." Put in spite of all his faults he will, without doubt, make Mrs. J. W. an excellent “Hubbv." J. R. Poteat, or “J. R.." as he is commnolv called, made his debut on this terrestrial ball August 15, 11894. in Xcw Haven. Conn. He received his early education in the schools of his native city, and in 1903 landed on Furman campus. His yankec grit, aided bv his sunny nature, aided him to “get there." In addition to being a favorite among his fellows, he is an ardent disciple of Cupid, lie has been known to advocate extensive patronage of the Railway Post Office, and believes heartily in the advice. “Young Man. go South.” for about 145 miles. L. II. Raines. To look at this quiet and sedate Junior, one would think that lie had no mischief in him. but you are likely to be mistaken, for “Luther" possesses quite a lot of mischief and dry wit. lie is very much afraid of the fair sex. and says that they are the class of animals which he believes it is safer to let alone. He tells us of the time when he called on a lady who was of a very affectionate nature. After sitting in his lap for two hours, she wrapped 63her arms around his neck and kissed him a dozen or more times. I hereupon lie decided tjiat she was a fast girl and so he leit her. Luther is a good, hard student and hears very patiently the trials of "I’syc and the jokes ot Dr. Cook. . I . Sawyer. From Ridge Spring, did you say." Well, that accounts tor it. then; I know now why he is such a sport and “legger. Rut is he really from Ridge Spring? Rather thought that he was from M . since he talked about that place so much. Hill’ is some tennis player, besides being a professional heart smasher. "Studies”—shhh. don’t let him hear you say that, it would scare him to death, for he has a horror for all such things. II. C. Smith, the great big bov. The Chicora girls (and especially one) know him as the man with big feet. Rut in spite of Smith’s heteronomous leet and helerogenious feelings and short comings, lie i the greatest Greek student of the known world, l ie is fond of “riding.’ Inn one day in Greek, the interlining of his automobile gave out and Dr. Cook had a good laugh on him. Rut greater than all else is to see him sing the "Alma Mater" in chapel. lie has handled ponies so much that he brays it. V. 11. Ward. He is one that all the girls love (in a most peculiar way). Shall I tell you how? Ask him, he has worked it all out by Math., in which he is a star. Nevertheless, notwithstanding, in spite of his many down-fallings. Ward will surprise us some day ceasing his Mathematical calculations long enough to make experiments in the realm of matrimony. May all his troubles be little ones. (Anonymous.) Sir Thomas 11. W atson. Deceivingly sagacious, amazingly voracious, ‘‘Strong in limb, lusty in lung." is a good description of our friend from Latta. ”'l'. II." is studying “for a minister." and we. have a feeling for those "heathen” for whom lie has a scries of sermons in store. Although Watson hasn’t eaten at the dormitory for many months, the waiters there still have a vivid recollection o! his small ( r) appetite, lie is much noted in the class room for “cutting loose" from the author and expressing his thoughts in his own language. His saying: "I know that, Professor, but 1 cAn’t tell it." is famous the campus over. 64Sophomore Sponsor and Officers i__ nplumtnr? QHaas Motto— 'I'o pass Soph. Mat. and turn rats.

It was found, after the glad welcome into a grander and nobler life than the previous year, that our ranks were decreased nearly half. But it was only in number that we lost, for we all entered with more enthusiasm and determination to win greater favors, and to attain higher ideals than we had attained in the year just passed. So those that did return plunged into Sophomore Bible as if they had not found Freshman hard in the least. From the outset we were very proud of having the honor of being the champions in football the preceding year. This, however, did not place us above the realization that this placed a till greater responsibility than ever on us. Wc realized that if we were to retain out grade of excellence in the class room and on the Athletic field wc must put forth more determined effort. Despite that, amid the toil and grind of the first three months, a few. like the Arabs of old. closed their tents and stole away, we still have about forty members, who still persevere and entwine about the “purple and white" our “blue and white."

ROY 72History of Freshman Class On the nineteenth lav of September, 1912. a large number of young-agriculturists bade farewell to the plow, to the familiar old fields, and to all the loved ones, including the old mule and the old sow with her five little pigs, and set out for the famous old institution of Furman University. Upon their arrival they were welcomed to the campus by a genial "Reception Committee." The welcome was heartfelt, and the events of that and succeeding nights convinced the new arrivals that the welcome could also be bodily fell. The reception at night was marked impressively, and the impressed marks still show up in various places. But to continue more seriously, a few days after their arrival they determined, in the words of Dr. Potent, "To meet opposition with organization." and after electing their officers, they set forth to accomplish great achievements. I low well they have succeeded is shown by their records. The Freshman Class has already distinguished itself in all college activities. Upon the foot ball field, her worthy sons have won renown, and upon the base ball field they have likewise distinguished themselves. But the sons of the Freshman Class have made their greatest record in the class room. They have mastered Professor Earle’s theory, despite the fact that many are still "in soak." In Bible, tho at first they were swallowed by the whale that devoured Jonah, yet. after three days, they were again cast upon the sea shore, and more Freshmen passed Doctor Poteat’s examination than ever before. In all class room work the Freshmen have vanquished their foes and now reign supreme. If the members of the Freshman class meet the battles of life with that same invincible determination and courage, which has characterized their efforts while at Furman, they will beget representatives in the Old Institution which has always had marked influence upon the welfare of South Carolina. 73Fuksiiman Oitickks AMI S ton sou Miss I'ostkk.

Little is known of the magazine beyond the name, which was The Turman Collegian. The following years were hard limes for the University. Students were few and finances limited, and so. after a struggling existence of a few years, the magazine ceased to be. Hut the founders of the Collegian had kindled a Maine which, although it might smoulder, could not die altogether. A few years elapsed and the Taman University Journal was attempted for one year, after which it died. Then there was a longer period of inactivity. But in 1882. several members of the Adelphian Literary Society, prominent among whom was J. M. Manly, now head of the English department of Chicago University, revived the interest in Literary endeavor, and began the publication of the Adelphian. The first issue was for November, 1882. In this there appeared the editorial comment: “Since the number of students is greatly increased, and the Adelphian is enjoying a like prosperity, having failed to secure the assistance of our beloved and highly esteemed sister, the I’hilosophian Society, the Adelphian Literary Society has decided not to revive the Collegian or Journal, but to start an altogether new pape'k Mic Adelphian. In March, seven and a half years later, the sister society, following the example of her companion, began the publication of a rival paper, the PhUosophian. Both the Adelphian and the Tliilosophian were printed in the form of a paper, that is. they were not bound as the form of the Echo. The two publications continued several years of friendly rivalry until in the session of t88 j- )o. they united to form the Turman Echo. The societies have equal authority and responsibility in the publication of the magazine. O11 alternate years each society elects the Kditor-in-Chief. and Assistant Business Manager. Business Manager and Assistant Eulitor-in-Chief. Each society regularly' elects, for each term, three associate editors. The twenty-three years of the life of the Echo have been years of increasing prosperity. The management has been placed upon a sure financial basis, and the work of the editors and managers, with the hearty support of the students at large, has been such as to elevate the magazine into a place of deserved importance in the life of the Universitv. 77The Furman Kcho Fall Term Staff G.

I was not a pij c from the beginning : nor as a pipe was I ever as I am now. That is. I have never been a cast-awav. a thing unwanted—until now. And 1 wish I were not. Net that I am not satisfied with myself and do not want to he a pipe; but 1 do not want to be a cast-off—something unsought for and uncared for. It is tint pleasant. Indeed it is very disagreeable—terribly so. Such an existence is to he shunned, not sought for--avoided, not desired. But here I've been on this dusty old desk for days—all alone. The dust has covered me. I am empty and undone. Not even the house maid has disturbed me. )ncc she came in and swept the room, and l‘m sure she saw me. But she helped me none. She only shook her head sadly as she swept and murmured aloud: "Poor fellow. There’s his pipe—just as he left it.” She must have been talking of my young master. Certainly site was not speaking aloud to me in words of such pity. She was talking of him. But surely she must have known, too. how lonely it has been every day and night since he went away, and how utterly wretched I am in my abandonment, 'flic day brings me no joy. the night no rest. But no one would understand my wretchedness or the cause thereof unless they had known my young master—unless they had known how pleasant was our broken comradeship. I loved my young master. And as I. so did many others. Me was one of these rare men who make friends unconsciously. He had no enemies. And down at the big office where he worked everybody liked him. He was the life of the place. When things went wrong with the others, as things often do in any office, my master just bubbled over with humor and fun. lie kept the frowns from all faces, the gloom front every heart. Me made friends of all by being friends to all. He won a place in all hearts by giving to all a place in his own heart. His heart heat high as the world. In the afternoons when he went home from his work the children would hang on the gates and gather on the lawns to await his coming. They told him their misfortunes, and he was sympathetic. They made known to him their joys, and he laughed with them. Eor them he mended broken wagons and bandaged disabled dolls. For them he carried candy in his pockets. Yes. my young master loved children: that showed his greatness. The children loved him—all of them: that was a greater testimonial to his greatness. Tf my master does not return, the children will miss him—will grieve that he has gone away. And others, too! I think now of one—the old crippled man who sat in his wheel chair down on the street corner and sold shoe strings. And I remember. Sotoo—how could I ever forget?-—how my young master would stop, as his big heart often prompted him t do. and have a word with the helpless old fellow. And when he went on his way the wrinkled uglv face of the old man was luminous with joy. Then, too, I can't forget how many shoe strings my master bought. I've wondered how he could use so many—and always when trade was bad with the old man in the chair. Wasn't it strange? Perhaps so. And I remember, too. for you sec, I. being a pipe, went with my master everywhere-—the old blind woman who lived in a lonely little house down in the alley. It seemed like following the road to the end of decent existence to go down that alley. But there my master often went. Xot that there was anything attractive about the alley, for there was nothing but tumbled fences, rubbish, and dirty houses. But to him there was something attractive in the helplessness of the old woman who fussed at the noisy children and smiled to hear his footstep. Tie read to her—talked to her—described to her things which her poor blind eyes in her world of darkness could not sec. He made things real to her. ITe described the woods and meadows in such language—the woods and meadows so far from her lonely little house in the alley that she seemed to walk there without having to be led or to grope her way alone. And he talked of the rose bush beneath his window until it seemed to the old woman that the fragrance of the flowers filled her little room. But why am T thinking thus? Perhaps it is because I am lonely. Perhaps it is because T am proud f have a master who believed there was some good in everybody—believed that in the vilest human creature was an ember of virtue that could be fanned into flame. And as T think thus, I recall other things which T. in mv utter abandonment, ponder. 2. SHE My master had high ideals. TTc expected great things of others and desired that others expect great things of him. And T have wondered -wondered often as T observed my master closest—if his unspeakable ideals were what kept him from marrying. Could it be true—often I’ve questioned myself thus—could it be true that my young master would never find the woman, never come face to face with the woman, the' one woman, who would he everything to him and to whom he would be all in all? This is not for me to know, perhaps. But T had believed that there would come one woman—sometime, somewhere—who could claim him for her own. or in some mysterious may. make him seek to claim her for his own. And it happened so. There passed before my master’s eyes one day—passed like a beautiful unexpected dream—one whom he decided was good not in part, but in whole, not an ember of goodness burned to ashes, but a flame that burns and brightens. She was a young creature—so my master said later—of finest sensibilities. 81rarest grace. and phenomenal beauty. And I remember where it was my master first saw her. and how it was with him when she passed before him. It was this way: Me was sitting at his desk, which is close to the big office window that overlooks the street. It was five o'clock in the afternoon. All the others had left the office had gone home. I Silt because of some intricate calculations that had to be made my master remained longer. When be had filled me with tobacco he leaned back in his chair, put his feet upon the desk, and began to smoke. At this instant she passed the window. She didn't look toward my master—didn’t speak to him—didn’t give any gesture of recognition. Apparently she had not seen him. I’mt he. when she had passed, went to the window and looked after her as she went down the street. She was slender and lithe -as graceful in her every movement as a young wild thing of the forests. “A beauty—a man half blind could see that!" exclaimed my master, unaware that the office boy bad returned for a package. The boy stood ilcut. “The finest plum on the tree—the brightest star in the sky—even from this distance.” said my master with a laugh. Then the office boy laughed, too. 1 couldn’t blame him. Who could help it? My master, who had thought he was alone, frowned on the urchin. “Oo home, hoy—go now." he commanded. Tic went. Then my master turned to his calculations. Those finished, he arose to go. “T wonder who she is." he muttered, as he pulled on his coat. “I wonder who she is." he said aloud, as he closed the door with a hang. And again, out on the street, he said. “T wonder who she is.” 3. FACE TO FACE Who was she anyway? Let me think. T know now. Tbit I never knew until my master did. nd he didn't know until two months after she had passed his window. Rather unexpectedly, at a great banquet in the city, he came face to face with her. When he met her first, her dark, sensitive face, framed in masses of rich, jet-black hair, which he thought was the most beautiful lie had ever seen in woman, wrapped him in a sort of wonder. So fragile she seemed, so masterful, and withal so beautiful. TTe was conscious that her beauty was not her chief charm, though her voice, soft and subdued, moved him strangely: and her dark eyes, like great black opals, fascinated him. My master talked with her. All that he said T do not remember. Much that she said have forgotten. Rut T do remember their first farewell. Tt was this way. They were in the hall together after the banquet. He helped her on with her cloak. Then they went out on the great veranda until her carriage should come to the steps. Tn her hand, held loosely, was a white rose, ft slipped 82from Ikt fingers and dropped to the floor. Mv master stooped, picked it from the floor, and held it in his own hand. At this instant their eyes met. And she read the question in his eyes. “Certainly not. sir.—it’s my rose." she said, decidedly, with a loss of her head, as though provoked. "Then I'll take it." my master answered, quietly. “Thief!" she cried, as the carriage drew up to the steps, lint as she entered the carriage there was the faint shadow of a smile about her lips. My master saw that smile. And was it the smile or the stolen rose that made him act so strangely that night? This I know. I To drew his chair up to the window and. looking out into the night, smoked an hour or so. slowly and meditatively. At last, near midnight, he arose. He drew the rose from his pocket. He held it at arm's length above his head. “A lovelier rose I know—the fairest in the garden,” he said. Once abed lie could not sleep. Restless he was as one terribly feverish. And at that hour something deep down in bis heart was singing very low and very, very sweet: and he knew he loved her—loved her with tenderness and strength. At last, near dawn, he slept. When lie awoke—my master—it was with the fragrance of the rose in his nostrils. 4. POSSESSION T saw it all—heard it all. for T was in my master’s pocket. They were together by the fountain. In that spot, the past, with all its wonder and mystery. came to them. Rut neither dared, for awhile, to begin that sweet story which was old when the pyramids were new. My master was the first to speak. "ft has been two years,” he began. “Two years? What about them?" she questioned. “Two years since we met." reflectively. "Yes. two years—only two years.” slowly. •'Precious years!" “Yes? Why?" “They brought you.” “To where?—to whom?" “To this place—to me He drew nearer to her. She was silent. His eyes sought hers. For a moment they stood thus—face to face, eye to eye. soul to soul. "I love you.” he said. “You know it—have known it long. Ts it not true?” There was silence—silence for just a moment. ft is true.” she answered simply. 83“And you love me?” eagerly. She heard the question from his lips. She read it in his eyes. She felt it in the grasp of his strong hand. Again she was silent. ’Twas but for a moment. "It is true likewise,” she whispered. That night when my master went to his room he felt that he was in possession of the world, void of all that vas bad—the world full of all that was good. 5. WHY But that is not all. Something did not go well with my master. T’m sure of that. Yet T have never known just what it was—and no one has told me. One night he went to sec her. That is all T know. For once lie left me behind— left me on the desk just as I am now—just as T have been for days. And so. being absent from him. T did not know what happened. Nor am T able to gain that knowledge now. But when my young master returned, it was late. I had never known him to come home so late. TTc seemed worried. T had never seen him so worried before. Tie walked the floor like a wild thing newly caged. TTe talked strangely. Such strange words T had never heard come from my master's lips. Knowing that he was troubled. T woidd have comforted him. blit 1 coidd not. Long after midnight he went to his trunk and flung back the lid. TTe took therefrom a package of letters—letters mysteriously fragrant. TTe crossed the room, the letters in his hand, and sat down before the fire. Slowly, one by one. he fed them to the greedy flames—until all were gone, he himself uttering strange incoherent words the while. T thought it strange that he should do awav with the letters, for T had seen him read them again and again— days before. But that night, when the letters had been burned. T thought surely be would go to bed. For it was late—very late—and he needed rest. But he did not. Tt seemed far from his mind. T wondered what he would do next. This, as T remember it. is what he did: TTe took from the mantlepiece a picture —her photograph. Long he held it before him. Then, slowlv. verv, very slowly, as though reluctant or fearful to let it go. he let it slip from his fingers into the open fire. Tt began to burn quickly. And. in the bright flare that followed. T saw that my young master’s face was ghastly pale. And the ugly smile on bis lips was not pleasant to see. “Burn—burn—burn!” he hissed. “You hide a false heart!” What did lie mean? Tt was at this moment that he arose. All the wild blood of his race seemed to be aflame. A strange and alien man he seemed to be now. filled with violent emotions whose depths T could not fathom. And yet in every movement of his body and in every line of his face he seemed calm and unmoved by any 84inward conflict. 1 watched him closely. Twice he walked across the room. Once he stopped abruptly before his desk lingered there just a moment. Again he walked across the room, this time very slowly. And once again he stopped before his desk, lie snatched a drawer open. I noticed as he did so how his hands trembled. Pushing the drawer halt closed, he walked over to the window. For a long time he stood there -so long until the tire burned to ashes and the unfilled lamp on his desk began to flicker and grow dim. Ik-stood with folded arms, listening—listening t the wintry winds, as though he would ask a whisper of peace from them, lie stood with tace uplifted to the stars--uplifted, as though he would seek a measure ol comfort from them. 1 watched. Ii was all I could do. Again my young master crossed the room. Again he stopped before his desk and looked into the open drawer. He took therefrom a loaded revolver, lie dropped it into hi coat pocket. And as he started toward the door hi tall figure seemed tottering and staggering as under the pressure of some awful burden. As he paused, seemingly half-irresolute, with his hand upon the knob ol tlie door. I would have called him hack. I hit I could not. lie opened the door softly and went out into the night. I have awaited his return, hoping lie would come again, lint he has not. Why? -Robkut ('». Lkk,SniNKS Al:oi T Till- C'AMITSens SOCIETIESAdelphian Literary Society Officers—Fall Term E. V.

R. 89M MED1ATKLA after the opening; of Furman I’niversitv in 1850, the students framed their first organization for literan pur| oscs. The name given to this venerable institution, so noble in il origin and so full of historic interest, was the Adelphian Literary Society. The object sought bv it founders was to obtain for the members not only social enjoyment, but practice and shill in parliamentary law. in the composition of literature and in the art of public speech. I laving perfected their organization, the student' held their meetings at lir-t near Main Street, but later they secured an apartment in the Cniversity, where they regularly met up to njoo. In that year, however, the Alumni Hall was completed: and in this building the society has ever since occupied an elegant and commodious ball. Now. soon after the society had begun its work, a faction arose which became so dissatisfied that it drew apart in 1854 and formed another body called the I’hilosophian Literary Society. Thenceforth a friendly, though .spirited rivalry, subsisted between the old society and its new competitor, lint in i«S6i the contending Adclphians and rhilosophians dropped their scholastic contests to engage in the more gigantic contest between the North and the South. n-swering to the bugle call of the Confederacy, they enlisted by scores under the banners of Lee and Jackson. For a period of five years the Cniversity was dosed. Hut in i8(V». when peace had been restored, the Cniversity reopened, and the Adelphian Society resumed its work with the old-time enthusiasm and with a steadily increasing membership. During the period from the close of the war to the present, the society has accomplished much. It has been a large factor in the training and equipment of hundreds of men. many of whom have achieved distinction as preachers, lawyers and professors. It has united with the I’hilosophian Society in publishing the Furman Echo, and it has thereby provided its members with a field of training not only in journalism, but in all kind.' « i literary composition. hen. in i«Sq8. the South Carolina Intercollegiate ratorical Association was organized, it elected as its first president a member of the Adelphian Society. As regards the public functions of the Cniversity. it lias long been a custom of the society to hold an annual public meeting. hit of fourteen inter-society oratorical contests. the society has won seven. Such being the nature and the record of the Adelphian brotherhood, it only remains to he said that its membership is composed of hard working men who are concerned with promoting the welfare of one another in particular and of the I niversity as a whole. 00E.

W. 97Philosophian Society Dl'RIXG the first year of her existence there was hut one literary society at Furman, the Adelphian. The meetings were held on Saturday evening in Me Bee Hall, which was several blocks from the campus, hut near the hoarding places of the students. Since the noise of these meetings disturbed the Masons, who met on the other story of the building, the students were requested to find another place. A warm debate followed, and a small majority of the members of the society voted to vacate the hall. Thereupon those who were in favor of retaining then old place of meeting met under the trees on or near the campus and organized the Philosophian Literary Society, with G. A. Norwood as president and J. K. Mclver as recording secretary (May, 1852). After this they went hack to the old place of meeting. For nine years the society prospered, then came the Civil War. during which eight Philosophians lost their lives, and for a period covering those dark and gloomy years the minutes show a break. It was reorganized. April j. 1866. and since that time has continued to grow and prosper. “Excelsior" is the motto of the society, and vetilv it seems appropriate to the spirit of the members. So great has the number of the members become that they now meet in two sections, the Gamma on Friday nights and the Sigma on Saturday nights. This division was made in the Fall of 1 x )- Once a month joint meetings are held which tend to keep the two sections closely united. 'I'he efficiency f the society’s members is well shown by the records they have made. Of the thirteen speakers who have represented Furman in the S. C. I. O. A., seven have been Philosophians. and two of the seven have won first places, fn addition to this two of her men have won second places in the All-Southern Contest. Besides the oratorical training, an excellent opportunity is offered the students in journalistic training, six men being chosen from each section every month to submit contributions to the Furman Echo. This magazine is the result of the combination in the later eighty’s of the papers published separately by the Adelphian and Philosophian Societies. Today the prospects of the old society seem very bright. Blessed by the loyalty of her members, it is to he hoped that she will continue to send forth sons into the world who shall stand in the very front of life’s battle, ever remembering and reflecting credit on the motto—“Excelsior ’ 98K.

Jess killed himself a-drinkin’. so they say; Been on a "Bust.” carousin’ 'round all day— So had no strength to fight the had disease That laid him low an ’tuk him off with ease. The man jes' drunk himself to death you see : But the same man has been the life o’ me. (2) So he died drunk—no prayer in his soul— An’ ravin’ so it made our blood turn col'. He shook an’ jerked all over as he died. An' we strong fellows stood around an’ cried— Jes’ cried to see him rave an’ suffer so. W hen thinkin' of the man he was—years ago. But we all knew when Bill had lost his breath He did not mean to die that sort o’ death. (3) Now Bill’s been rough upon himself—that’s true: But lie’s been good—poor Bill—to me an’ you. He fed us when we had run short o’ bread. An' nursed us when we were so sick in bed. He had no stingy streak in him—no. no— His heart an' hands were open wide you know. So let folks sneer, as folks will sometimes do. But—God knows—Bill's been good to me an’ you. (4) Bill did not always drink an' act so wild; Time was when he was gentle as a child An’ kind an’ good to all. And he was strong; He hated whiskey then an’ all things wrong. He prayed three times a day; and that man’s life Brought joy to all—an' to his child and wife. An’ when he held his first-born on his knee. Oh. in them times—how good was Bill to me. hi(5) I Jut tilings got had an went all wrong with Bill : lie had no level roads all straight tin hill! His house, with all he had. hunted to the ground. Alt' then the wife he loved was -stricken down So then for doctor's hills Bill’s wages went I 'ntil ‘most all his bank account was spent. Bill worked an' nursed his sick the whole night through. And always he was good to me an’ you. (6) Bill built another house—a house of stone lie had to go in debt, hut Bills' face shone. But when that face grew sad an' lost its light. An' Bill went ’bout an' wouldn't cat a bite. An' why? 11 is wife one night kissed him an’ died n’ left a tiny baby hv her side. Bill’s grief was great— we knew not what to do I At him who’d dried the tears fer me an' you. (7) We wept: hut tears o' ourn couldn't stop Bill's tears: We saw that grave would trouble him for years. So then when we folks laid his wife to rest: Somehow we couldn't feel things worked the best. We clothed her grave with blossoms all our own -Then went away an’ left Bill there alone With his heart broke, we jes' got awful blue Dear Bill! How good he'd been to me an' you. w Twas night when Bill went home an' tuk the child: That lonely house jes' set the poor man wild! The babe with hunger cried—Bill's other child with grief. An' Bill an’ neighbors kind could hardly bring relief. That night the baby died. ( ft needed mother's breast) An' then, next day. by her we placed it too. to rest. So after this we did fer Bill the best we knew. We loved the man—he’d been so good to me an' you. 112(9) His wife and baby dead! We fellows say That that was burden nough fer God to lay On any man. l’.ut God's way ain't our way. (If 'twas I Ic’d ruin the world in jes a single day) But something else: BillVIirst-born child—a boy— Was Bill's delight—his chiefest pride an joy: An fer that child Bill had so much to do. But Bill tuk time to do fer me an you. (10) ()ne day a sickness gripped that child with power. An tuk it from Bill's arms in just one hour. Bill didn’t shed a tear. We hid away From his dry eyes his child beneath the clay. An leavin' there sweet faces hid by clod. We heard him whisper loud: "There ain't no God." Bill cussed the Lord that day—an awful thing to do!— lie got drunk, too. But he's been good to me an' you. (n) So after this Bill wasn't Bill, lie went To drinkin’ hard and soon the man had spent Bout all he had. One week he spent in cash At one saloon a pile. Bill acted rash! We talked to him an' tried to hoi' him back. He drank the harder then—the brakes were slack! But if the world forgets the good he used to do, We can't forget how good he was to me an you. (12) Bill drank so hard his strength an' life soon wasted ’way, An’ he stretched out. dead drunk, upon the streets one day, Too drunk, too weak to rise. He could not talk: His shoeless feet bled so he could not walk. We picked him up—no place to take him to. For he had sold his house fer dollars few. But yet no matter who their words of scorn renew We can't fergit Bill’s love fer all—fer me—fer you. 113(i3) lie lived a sober life ter thirty years. An' in that time lie caused nobody tears: An’ so 1 think that God won’t be so bard ( )n Kill that lie’ll not git a full reward For all bis sober years. An' 'bout Kill’s language vile? With it God will compare bis words o’ kindness mild. Kut if the Lord condemns an' damns poor Kill. I’ll rue 'l’hc day when we fergits Kill’s love to me an you. (14) ( )li! be died drunk—lost out bad in the end--Sold out fer drink—gave up the fight- an’ Friend. The good Kook says all drunkards go to bell: Kut don’t you think that God considers well The good be did as well as so much bad— 'l'lie heights he climbed same as the falls he had? He died a shameful death we know that’s true— Kut Kill—dear Kill!—was good to me an you. • (IS) Yes. that’s him there- not drunk, but dead-—Kill Fawn! An’ people speak o’ him as dead an' gone. We know be didn't die as righteous people die. Kut in so much that man was better'11 you or 1. It ain’t our part to heap the shame up high Fer somehow I believe Kill's gone beyond the sky. To find his place where graves ain’t wet with dew. Because he was so good to me an' you. (.6) An’ when Kill faces God at God’s stern judgment seat, I think there will come walkin’ in the weary feet Kill rested here.

R. Pot eat E. W. Mac hen )l Kll l!KS Y. M. F"“--—™ History of the Y. M. C. A. The Young Men’s Christian Association, as an institution of lAirman I’niversity, had its luginning in 1882. when a delegation of young men from the Y. M. C. A. of Wofford College, which association iad been organized in 1870. came over to C.rccnville and formally organized a Y. M. C. A. at Kurmau. At times life in it seemed to he extinct, blit, volcano-like, it was not dead: it had ceased to cast forth its expected streams of moral and religious helpfulness, and Christian brotherhood unity, only to burst forth with renewed vigor under new stimulations and the pressure of such a Christian organization in a student lxxly. These eruptions compose a history that is varied and checkered and full of vicissitude. struggling at times to let the world know there was ever a crater existing. In the year |8 X. Doctor Kstes. who was then the Cniversits Professor of Latin, was one who look great interest in the student life, and in his observations and dealings with the students, found the vital need among them of a burning mountain of Christian manhood, with its life-building and life-uplifting forces flowing out of it. The thought of this mountain, which had been thrown up in 1882. and filled with Association principles and ideals to be cast forth to enter from the minds of all. Doctor Kstes set about to infuse into the minds of a few students the need of a Christian organization among the students, and. together with their assistance, an organization of this character was organized, or rather reorganized, for what they brought to existence was the revival of the burning mountain of Christian development of the spiritual and moral nature of man. which had its initial llow in 1882 under the name of Voting Men’s Christian Association, which name was given to the reorganized institution. Since i8 )8 there has never been any fear to any one of tile extinction or lessening of the burning mountain. The Y. M. C. A. since then has had a steady growth. I11 1898 there were fifteen members in the Y. M. C. A., and a totai enrollment of 155 in the Cniversity. The year 1012 shows still greater growth, for there are now 107 on the roll from a total enrollment of about 175 in the I niversity. Interest has been actively manifested in every phase of the International Y. M. C. A., of which the local body is a part, since 1898. There has not been a year since that date that the local organization has failed to semi delegates to the Southern Students Conference, which meets at Montreat. X. C.. in June of even year. I11 1910 the Y. M. C. A. sent twenty-one delegates, which was the second largest delegation present at the Conference. The championship pennants are in the possession of the Y. M. C. A., which were won at Montreat. Delegates have been sent to the International Conference since 1901. Phc association sent two delegates to the International Convention, which met in Columbus. hio. in icjoS. 120The Association, in 190 ). sent a delegation »»f twenty-two to the South Carolina liible Institute, a division of the South Carolina V. M. C. A. organization. ( )nlv one other school in the Stale was represented by so large a number of students. Three students were sent, in njo6. to the International Volunteer Convention, which is a division of the International propaganda, and. in tyio. three students and one member ol the faculty were sent as delegates to the convention at Rochester. Hut the interest in the work and welfare of the State. National and International h'ganizalions has not narrowed the field of local service and development. Since the revival in i«S ;8 ol the sleeping crater there have been meetings conducted by the V. M. C. A. in a commodious room in the Alumni Hall. These meetings are held each Thursday night, and are led by members of the Facultv. pastors in the city, visiting pastors, physicians, visitors to C.recnville connected with various prominent religious movements, traveling N . M. C. A. Secretaries, students, and various other men. liible study and mission work is encouraged and fostered, and has been tor the last thirteen years. At present the liible Stmlx work is not directly under the control of the V. M. C. A., as it has been given over to the Judson Memorial liaracn Class of the First Haptist Church. This class has an enrollment of about a hundred, composed exclusively of the Furman students, and is taught by Professor Geer. This year the mission study class has been put into the hands of five students as teachers. These teachers are very ably prepared to lead their respective classes, attending a normal class, which is very abl conducted l v Prof. Cox. lie is a man of experience and this experience is bountifully shared to every man who comes in contact with his cultured presence. hat is his is the property of every one else. There are in the mission study classes this year about 125. The Volunteer Hand is another phase of work done by the V. M. C. A. 'I bis will be treated elsewhere in the Annual. ()f all the V. M. C. A. work, one of the greatest and best sources of religious inspiration, and of coming in touch with God. is found in the daily prayer meetings. These services are conducted each evening. V. M. G. A. night and Sunday night being excepted, in one room on each floor of Montague Hall, and in each of the other three halls, for about fifteen minutes after supper. It is the sense of these prayer meetings that every student on the campus will attend one of these gatherings each day. and a very gratifying attendance usually marks them. Another feature of the ssociation is the work with the Christian Workers L’nion of Greenville. F.vcry Sunday afternoon several Furman men are appointed by this excellent organization to hold religious services in and around the city where the gospel is most needed. 121e Evangelistic Band Motto—More intense Christian living more effective service.

In September, tpi i. it seemed good to try to organize again. ISy strenuous effort the organization has gained most of the ministerial students as members. JSut the membership is not vet complete. The aim of the body, in a few words, is to promote the Christian life and develop the latent talents of those who intend to preach the gospel. The band lias one meeting each month, and holds meetings with churches when possible. u-'Student Volunteer Band for Foreign Missions Motto -"The evangelization of the world in this generation." II.

WATSON7 i-’iHistory of the Student Volunteer Band The present Student Volunteer I land of Furman l’niversit is the outgrow tit of a smaller organization started by eight consecrated young men in October. 1907. These men were Abbott. Iiabb. Barber, l.ide. Potent, Poe. Smith and Quizcn-berry. They chose as their first leader for president V. II. Poe. and as ice President, J. I . Quizenberry. At the last of that school year four others had definitely handed themselves over to Cod for service in the field of largest usefulness. In the autumn of 1908. the Band started again with eight members, several having failed to return. |. K. Quizenberry was then chosen President, and J. F. l.ide. Vice President. Their work was characterized by the same |ttiet prayer life that had previously set them apart as peculiarly faithful. During this year ten new memliers were added. At the opening of the University in (Ictoher. 1909. seven of the old members were absent, but there were still twelve members, one new addition having been made at the summer Students’ Conference at Montreal. J. F. l.ide was President and Cordon Pot eat. Vice President, of the Band for the College Year. They did a years’ work and were like leaven in the student-body, inlluencing the students by example, to more intensive and purposeful living. By the end of the year, three more young men had been enlisted. purj osing to give themselves to work in foreign parts. In the autumn of 1910. the band was composed of only nine members, several having graduated or failed to return. Kpps was elected President and J. F. Anderson. Vice President. Anderson having left school. Mobley was chosen in his place. This year the watchword of the Band was "Service." and this watchword was not chosen amiss, as was shown by the unprecedented amount of deputation work and missionary interest aroused. fibers seeing their consecrated lives were constrained to adopt as their motto “Service for God Anywhere.” Six others were added to the Band before the year ended. 'I'he Band met. as usual, at the opening of school in September. 1911. but six of the members had gotten degrees in June and this reduced our number somewhat. The Band meetings this year have not lieen as regular as usual, but now all arc bending their energies toward a greater deputation service. All the members are taking a lively interest in the Mission Study Classes. Up to the present wc have gained two other members, and though tiiis is not a great gain as to numbers, we are determined to do more effective service in the future, and to make our influence for good in the student body more potent than ever before.Jnelson Memorial Baraca Class OFFICERS Pkoi ('.KKK Fall Term Tcaclicr K.

Judson. who for more than fifty years idclificd himself with the life of l.« urn tan 1'niversitv as a teacher. I)r. Judson was deeply interested in Sun la School Work throughout his entire life, and evidenced this interest by a constant attendance at Sunday School and by giving his services as teacher of a class. It was thought to he eminently fitting to organize a class in Sunday School which should bear his name and for all lime serve as a memorial of him. and as a reminder of his long, useful career as a Sunday School teacher. Professor Judson lived in the home of Prof. II. E. (leer for a number of years before his death. The relation of Prof. Judson and Prof, (leer was more than that of friendship, and the tie which hound them together was as strong as that of father and son. Because of his dose relationship Prof, (leer was asked to take charge of the newly organized class. The membership of this class is made up of Furman University students, and the enrollment for this year exceeds one hundred. Our large weekly attendance made it impossible for the rooms of the hirst baptist Church to accommodate us. However, the Greenville Hoard of Trade kindly offered us the use of it spacious rooms in which to hold outl sessions. The class meets promptly at ten o'clock each Sunday morning, and the convenient location of the place of meeting makes it possible for the members of the class to reach any Church in the city in time for the morning services. 126Scknks Ahout rmc CamtusFurman Athletic Association OFFICERS C. 1).

Macjien Motto: To seek the truth Realizing a nee l, hitherto misapplied hy any other phase »f college hte. a few members of the Senior Class conceived the idea of organizing a literary chib. Accordingly early in January. hjU. ten men were selected front the graduating class, who were to constitute the charter membership of such an organization to be known as the .. T. A. Literary Club of Furman I'nivcrsitv. A committee was appointed t« draw up a new constitution and to outline a general plan of work. The object of the club as defined in this constitution is to pr mote the intellectual advancement of it- members through the study of the lives and work of great men and through the discussion of present-day problems. It was our pur|K se to make the club a permanent organization in college, and with this in view, membership was extended so as to include all Seniors and Juniors whom the club shall choose to elect. The six men from the Junior ('lass who have already been included in our number are: Feaster. Lee. Cox. Carson. Brown and Machen. Members of the Faculty are eligible to honorary membership. The club holds its regular meetings bi-monthly in the general lecture room of tin- new Science Mall. Me have already enjoyed several delightful programs, two of our most enjoyable lectures being: "What Is the Difference Between 'Living and ‘Life r" by Dr. Fletcher, and "An Appreciation of Wordsworth." by Professor Geer. These are but an earnest of -till more profitable programs which are being arranged for by our energetic and efficient program committee.The Upward Reach Don’t sit upon a foot-stool, friend. When God does offer you a throne : Don’t trace your name in wasting sand When you might carve it deep on stone. Don’t carry lights of tallow made. When you may hold a lamp of gold: Put not a bandage o'er thv eyes, but read W hen Nature doth her book unfold. Don't ride and spur a braying mule. When you can ride the pallid moon: Let not the world to you grow dark When you can make it bright as noon. nd do not walk in mud. and howl If you can pave a way and sing: Don't give up. slide back. stop, let go. When you have strength enough to cling. Don’t starve yourself on crumbs ami scraps When God’s great shelves are stored with bread: Don’t wear a shroud too soon, and weep As though your fondest hopes were dead. Walk not in darkness, but in light: Build not thy mansion on the clod: Thine is the day. the night; with them Join Orion in the march of God. 144 —Robkrt G. I«ee. ’13.E. M. Potent K. X.

Our strong forte is the right kind of training for REAL business—the training that gives you the “know how” assurance—and the “job” will then take care of itself. We emphasize this point because some young people, and apparently some business colleges, seem to have an idea that the cheif function of a business college is to furnish jobs rather than business training. We “deliver the goods” in both. And we see that the training is such that you can “make good” when you get the chance—and that is the important point. If you want to be a winner instead of a perpetual “job chaser” you should get your business training with us. ============= DRAUGHON’S == PRACTICAL BUSINESS COLLEGE GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINA: “'Tis a Feat to Fit Feet” j !

You are my all. more precious far than gold. And I ? Take me—now yours to have and hold. Spare me the pain of every parting kiss: Such kisses do not bless—they are not bliss. And empty arms are burdens, too. You know 'Pile vacant chair is thought of most. Don't go. You cannot go so far to escape my prayer. But I want more. Stay here beneath my care. Stay where mv hand may touch, my bosom hold, Mv eyes sec. my cars hear, my arms enfold. In illness 1 will nurse you hack i health: I will be all—your everlasting wealth.
