" As. for the last time, we look upon the enormous heap of manuscripts over which we have been poring almost daily for the last few weeks, the thought runs through our minds, “Have we really produced a true hook? Can there be any virtue in our fifteenth volume of The BonhomieWe are confessedly optimists and. frankly, we have a conviction that somewhere beneath tin outward appearance of paper and ink there must be some real worth. Such a thought, however, is not in the slightest degree prompted by any vanity or conceit on our part. On the contrary, our reason for believing that there is some virtue in this, the product of our labors, is the fact- that it is purposely a eoni| osito photograph, as it were. «»f the life at Furman as we have seen it. In this book we have endeavored to give a true history of the days we have spent during this, our last year at this institution, and we attribute to this fact whatever approval it may meet with. Our labors have not always Ik»ci» pleasant ones, but the pleasures have so far outnumbered the pains that we hesitate even to make mention of them. We have accepted tin responsibilities placed upon us; we have faced our tasks with cheerfulness and determination and now. having done our best, we offer you as the outcome of our efforts the 191" Bonhomie—abounding in faults, we admit, yet not wholly lacking in merits, we hope. As we contemplate the years of the future a picture arises in our minds, that of an aged man who, after the hurly-burly of the business life is done or the assiduous labors of a scholar's life, in the seclusion of his study stealthily takes down a 1015 Bonhomie with badly worn binding and slowly turns its pages. We can see with the mind's eye the wrinkled face light up with a celestial radiance as he lives over again that life at Furman long since left Ixdiind. We can hear him communing softly with those dear friends of the past, some of whom are no longer to be seen save through the photographer's art. As we contemplate such a picture, possibly of our own selves, we turn away, brushing a tear from our cheeks, and murmur. “It is well." If this book shall serve only to bring hack recollections and inspirations from his life at Furman to one Furman man, our work will not have l een in vain. F. II. IIexdkkson. frlitor-in-Chief. M. R.

Mobley M.Cf Parton Furmax Cornci 1.HTTtH Er BONHQM l£T% The Furman Council FRIIAPS the most significant piece of administrative reform advocated and carried out in the administration of President Poteat was the organization of the Furman Council in September, 1913. For years our President lnus been studying the various systems of student government in the larger universities and his ideas on this question have found full expression in the now firmly established Furman Council. The Council is a representative laxly of students who have practically the entire reins of government in their hands. All its members except one are elected by the students indirectly, for it has been decided that those students holding certain oflices of honor shall, ui o» being elected to these offices, l»ecome therewith memheis of the Council. This provision insures the Council’s being composed of those men who are leaders in tin school and have the esteem of their fellow-students. The Council is thus representative of the student body, and its actions are in reality the actions of the student community in a self-governing capacity. Those oflices which carry with them the honor of membership in the Council—for it is an honor—are the following: The Presidents of the Literary Societies, the Presidents and the Secretaries of the four classes, the Managers of the various athletic teams, the Kditors-in-Chief of The Bonhomie and Furman Echo, and the President of the Mess, the latter being the only member appointed bv the Faculty, and so far he has always held some other office to which the students have elected him and which would entitle him to a seat in the Council without the Presidency of the Mess. The jurisdiction and special duties of the Council were largely fixed by the circumstances which gave birth to it. At the December meeting of the Board of Trustees in Abbeville, 1912, the student body, through a committee, presented a petition asking the Trustees to re-establish inter-collegiate football iit Furman, football having been abolished some eleven years before by action of the Board of Trustees. The petition was granted and at a later meeting of the Board in June, 1913, when the subject came up for further discussion, Mr. II. J. Haynsworth moved the following: “Resolved, That the privilege of inter-collegiate football at Furman, voted at the December meeting of the Board of Trustees of Furman I niversitv, in 1912, will Ik continued at the discretion of the Board and on condition that the students themselves suppress and prevent hazing in all its forms.” On the afternoon of September 17, 1913, President Poteat presented this resolution to the members of the three upper classes and the conditions under which football was to be continued were accepted by unanimous rising vote.ETthe- e onhomieT% The students having thus shown the desire to suppress hazing, the question naturally arose as to how they should go about it and the organization of the Furman Council was effected, its duties being defined as follows: First. To protect inter-collegiate football by enforcing the requirement of the Trustees that hazing be suppressed and prevented in all its forms. Second. To make and enforce rules for conduct of Freshmen. Third. To guard and conserve the common good of the student body in all matters pertaining to gentlemanly conduct. The Council felt it within its rights, since it had pledged itself to protect Freshmen, to demand that the Freshmen should obey any rules which it might see lit to impose upon them. The most important of these rules, and the one which the Council believes will be of greatest benefit to the Freshman himself, is that requiring Freshmen to he in their rooms at nine o’clock at night, unless they have a permit allowing them to go out, and such permits are given only once a week under ordinary circumstances. The officers of the Council arc a President, a Secretary, an Executive Committee, consisting of the President ex-officio and two members, and ten Proctors. Two Proctors are appointed for each ffoor of Montague Hall and two for each cottage. It is the duty of the Proctors to preserve order and report any violations of the rules of the Council. Formerly the relation of Council and Faculty was different from what it now is. At first, it was agreed that the Council might suggest penalties and recommend clemency or severity in the enforcement of the rules of the institution, but these suggestions and recommendations were subject to review by the Faculty as a whole, with whom rested the final determination of what the penalty should lx . On January 20, 1915, however, the Council having become dissatisfied with this method of procedure, a motion was passed that a committee be appointed to present a petition to the Faculty asking for more power. The petition presented was granted and read as follows: We, the members of the Furman Council, do hereby petition your honorable body to modify the present system of student government so that it shall be as follows: (1) That the Council he granted complete control of disciplinary matters. (2) That each finding of the Council shall be read out by the Secretary of the same at the first gathering of students in the dining hall after the finding is made. (3) That every man disciplined by the Council shall have a right of appeal to the Faculty. Further, in case of any reversal of the Council’s decision,FT TH BQNHQM IfrTS or change of sentence by the Faculty when an apjx al has been made, the Council shall sustain this change. (4) That the Faculty shall have the privilege of making recommendations to the Council on matters which may have escaped the Council and yet conic to the knowledge of the Faculty. 'l'his petition was granted with the proviso that every finding should lie immediately rc|x rtcd in writing to the Faculty, and that in cases involving suspension or expulsion, the finding l»e not announced until consultation has been had with the President, a Committee of the Faculty, or the Faculty. I’nder the new scheme we can see no objection to the Council and we feel that its prestige and influence for the lx tterment of the student community will steadily increase as the students come to understand it better.

These men had gathered in response to a proclamation which had gone out from the court of Edwin, and which besought the youth of the surrounding districts and principalities to “come over into Macedonia and help us.” That is to say, Edwin, upon the advice of his Faculty—which is, being interpreted, his Privy Council—had issued a call for volunteers to enlist in his armies, in order that he might begin a carefully planned campaign against bis eternal enemy, Knowledge. Now Knowledge ruled the most extensive, the most fertile fields on the continent and it bad long been Edwin’s desire to win these rich holdings for bis own republic. And, indeed, through many vigorous campaigns he bad conquered not a little of his enemy’s realm and bad added it to bis own domains. Upon their arrival at Chapel, the capital of Furman, the above-mentioned young men were immediately enlisted by a process called matriculation, and. having received all necessary equipment from the quartermaster, who, however, was called Bursar, they were initiated into the plans of the campaign. But their rural souls longed, amid the clash f armor, for the quietude and tranquility of the life they had left behind. Indeed, the rudeness of the Sophomore regiment did not aid any in dispelling the loneliness f these new men. who were now called the Freshman Regiment. Their Colonel was a man of much strength, however, and under his leadership the Freshmen were determined to endure all bravely. At last all was ready and with four regiments Edwin and his staff set out on their campaign in the Fall of 1011. The recruits under able generals invaded the provinces of Math, English, History, Physics, Latin, Greek, Bible, and German and enriched thcnisclves with the fat of the land. Some few, however, were slain by the enemy, who had fortified themselves well with theorems, moods, tenses, chronologies, and great bodies called masses. .lust ns the campaign was being crowned with success, though, a terrible plague called graduation broke out and took off the entire Senior regiment. Edwin was thereupon compelled to withdraw. During the next two years the recruits developed into able soldiers and were assigned more difficult strategic movements involving the invasion ofTTTH fr BONHOM IET% •such strongly protected districts as Logic, Psychology, Chemistry, and French. Again Edwin was successful, but at last, at the battle of Commencement, his •Senior regiment was practically annihilated. Likewise the next campaign was terminated by another battle on the Plains of Commencement in which, among his other losses, Edwin’s Senior regiment was cut to pieces. The Junior regiment, thanks to the leadership of Colonel Campbell in 1912 and Colonel Watts in 1913. had been quite successful, and now became the Senior regiment. 'l'he following campaign was somewhat delayed by failure to complete all necessary preparations in the time planned, but finally it was entered upon. The Seniors, under Colonel Martin, were directed to subdue the districts of Astronomy. Ethics, Biology, Geology, Philosophy and Political Science. This was the most diflicult task of all. but the outcome was a fortunate one. Knowledge was soon conquered and wished terms of peace. Edwin returned with great joy and was received with loud acclaim bv the populace. A magnificent celebration was arranged in the capital. Edwin paraded the streets in academic processions, which were comprised of all his armies, the Senior regiment, the heroes of the occasion, being clad in festal robes. Then, as a culmination of three days of festivity, Edwin did call an assembly of all his subjects and did deliver a mighty address to those present. Having finished sounding the praises of the now famous Seniors, he proceeded to decorate with gold medals many of that regiment who had distinguished themselves on the field of battle. Then, after proclaiming the successful subjugation of Knowledge, he did present his Seniors, reduced through the long struggle to half their original number, with certificates of honorable dismissal. Thus the ceremonies were ended and on the following day the Senior regiment left Furman and returned once more to the pursuits of peace.FrTHL BONHOMIE Senior Class OFFICERS W. P.

Behind him, nearer the wall, lay a great Shepherd dog panting rapidly with the heat, occasionally closing his eyes to rest his head on his outstretched paws with a slower and more deliberate breath pulled from his nostrils. Simpson loved to rest thus after dinner, resting his eyes on the sweet green coolness of the willows along the (icncrostee, chatting away with any one who happened to be near, but now as no one but the dog was around, he sat in a pensive reverie. He sat thus for some time, then the dog raised his head and uttered a lazy “woof." A whacking, coughing, sneezing sound was heard down the road and then a time-worn auto dashed—or shall we say cluttered?—into sight. It stopped in front of the house and two men clambered out. Simpson, with his usual good-natured hospitality, hastened out to meet them, pausing at the gate a moment to exclaim: “Well, dog-gone; look who’s here!” Who indeed hut II. Alien and II. Ballentine? The former shut off the engine of the auto, and pulled oil' his gloves, explaining during the while: “Just run over from Anderson this morning to sell a hill o’ goods in Starr. Ballentine came along to do some electioneering. Thought we'd drop by to see you.” With his old enthusiasm, Simpson conducted the drummer and the politician into the porch, then went in to have his better half prepare dinner for the newcomers. It was lucky for our hero that the lady was rather mild-tempered, for one can hardly blame a farmer's wife for exploding in a volley of pseudo-cuss words when the eternal cross-country traveler avails himself of his well known ability to strike a farm house for dinner just as the last biscuit disappears from the noonday table. Simpson was soon back on the porch and. of course, where he appeared talking necessarily followed. lie and Allen did moat of the talking, for Ballentine, having realized his ambition to marry, had found the experiment —well, suffice if to say that he sat in moody silence thinking of the Ballentine-Gambrell divorce hill, an invention of his whereby lie hoped, with the assistance of his law-partner, (lambrell, both of whom served in the legislature, to rob South Carolina of her unique honor of having no divorce law. He wondered, as he sat there, why on earth his fellow Solons, Drummond from Laurens,FTthe- bonhomie-T and Shelor from Oconee, failed to see the matter as he did. Having failed so fearfully in his matrimonial adventure for comfort, he had taken to smoking brown cigars, the ends of which he chewed fiercely and nervously. Being so employed, he now punctuated the passing minutes with a deluge of brownish liquid forcefully expectorated into the yard before him. Simpson, after some moments of conversation with Allen, remarked, “Mad a letter from my ex-old-lady this morning—Sims, I mean, lie's coming to Starr to help in a meet in' fore long. He’d just got back from some kind o' preachers’ convention. Said he’d seen Wrenn, Welchel, Baggott, Fortner, Pickens, and J. R. Allen all there. You know that’s all the preachers of our class except Mullikin and Hodgens. Wonder where they are.” 1 saw Mullikin lately," said Allen. “He’s in the Upper Carolina Methodist Conference, and some one said Hodgens is teaching Ethics in gome Chinese Mission College with a jig-saw name.” “We had some lawyers in our bunch, too." said Simpson. “Yes, but most of them have gone into politics, but Floyd in Florence and Nelson in Laurens are doing pretty well at real law work, as a I have learned in my journeys,” continued Allen. At this point- Ballentine fired his twenty-ninth discharge over the balustrade, coming dangerously near deluging a featherless adolescent chicken, sunburned almost to blistering, which shrieked and darted under the house. Then he drew from his pocket a copy of the Greeneville Blatherskite, which he had procured from Allen that morning, and glanced over the columns while the other two continued their conversation, Simpson listening eagerly as his friend told how his commercial tours over the State had brought him in touch with many of the old class-mates. He sold occasional lots of merchandise to Truluck. Mobley, and Dodson in different towns where they conducted business. Watts and Martin were planning the erection of a bank in Laurens, an act which Campbell would perhaps emulate in Bennetts ville. J. S. Brown had married rich and had retired from public life, while Crow, “the reform mayor” of Spartanburg was raising quite a stir, and had an eye on the governor’s chair. Both Sauls and Tinsley, he had heard, were “lords of the earth” like Simpson, while to Lock man and also to Givens he had sold bills of goods, both of them running stores in connection with their farms. Ballentine still read on. He might have told how Pow, Foy, Lupo, and Myers had appeared before the legislature a few months before as a teachers’ committee presenting plans for the betterment of country schools. lie was still blue from his latest spat with Mrs. H. B. and did not even comment on an “ad” in the “Blatherskite” of K. R. Stall, architect, nor on an article fromFT THE- BONHOMIE the pen of E. Tl. Henderson, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Furman. An item announced that Dr. W. L. Bates had proved in court that he had never practised a- a velernarian, though lie had absent-inindedly diagnosed a certain society lady's lung trouble as heaves, but still Ballentine was silent. Suddenly, however, lie started, almost swallowed his cigar-stub, coughed it up, threw it into the yard, whistled and ejaculated. "Listen here, fellows." "Drake. S. C., July ” .—Not since Mr. J. V.

Just then the dinner-bell rang and the farmer conducted his guests to the dining room, remarking on the way. "Well, old I'red used to be a star football player, and now lie’s the comet member of our class." . L. Pickens.FTthe- bonhomie-TK JuniorFT T'H Er BONHOMIE Junior Class OFFICERS Nixon, W. D. .

Askin’S, Philip Talmage: Talmage is a splendid fellow. He is a good student, sings on the Glee Club and attends the First Baptist Church with great regularity. Cami-rki.L. Claude Waldrue: Claude has made himself famous lately by his great literary mind. His best production is the famous song of the “Round-Here Club," the echoes of which arc often heard at Montague Hall. Coleman, Ben Patrick: Patrick sings bass in the “Round-Here Club." and is as tough as a nut on the football held, where his scrawny figure is often seen lunging after the pig skin. Cox, William Franklin, Jr.: Frank is a ladies man. and with his basso profunda he enchants the fair sex. He is courageous, too. for he intends to face the starvation period of a lawyer. He is quite a debater, too. Drake, Franklin Pierce: Pierce’s tenor trembling on the breeze, his buckshot dimple, and his serene eyes are enough to make an old lady scratch her head and think. He is a quiet, unassuming fellow. Drummond, James Martin: Drummond's motto is: "My name is Jimmie and 1 11 take all you gimme.” He is a hard worker and sings soprano in the "Round-Here Club." Durst, Thomas Njciiolson: Toby is from Greenwood and he never fails to let the fact be known. He attends strictly to his own business and believes in the proverb, "Study hard and learn to be wise." Gregory, William Tiiuri.ow. Jr.: Greg is a quiet fellow and we hardly know what to say about him except that he is an ardent admirer of Dr. Byrd's girls. IIaiin. J. Pendleton: Yankee Hahn sprang from the North, lie is generally admired by us all. for he is by nature a good student. Hughes.

He is quite a hard worker. IIutciiinson, Manly Eskew: Melancholy Hutch can often be beard singing. "It s a long, long way to Chicora.” We do not know what he sang when he pm his hand into tooth-paste on a certain serious and solemn occasion. Jones, Waylanii Brooks: Possum is a great talker and generally expounds the law at the student meetings. He is big of l one and has won fame on the football field.

Unassuming and unpretentious is he. but he is pleasant and a hard worker. Lockwood. Charlie Madden: Charlie is a very religious fellow and is president of the V. M. C. A. He attends classes regularly in the morning and his girl in the evening. Moiii.ey, Francis Bru.met: 1 in:met is an all-round athlete and a hard worker. He is quiet, but when he gets on the athletic held you ought to see him light. Moore, Paul Alexander: Paul is not like the apostle, for justification by faith and love do not trouble him. The "Round-Here Club,” however, troubles him very much. Moseley, Sam Oliphant: Nature must have been half in a dream when she named him. If not. we should like to know why she used an O instead of an E in Sammy's name. He is beginning to win fame as a pitcher. Nixon, William Duva: W e all admire Nick for his energy in the class-room and in student life, lie is small of stature, but when it comes to rooting his lungs have more wind than a hurricane. Osborne, John Broadus: W e do not see much of hard-working J. 15.. for he is busy distributing the Piedmont and other news articles over the country. Owings, Roy Bobo: Roy believes in working from early morn till late at night, and we often sec the midnight lamp gleaming from his window. Owings, Tom Calvin: Tom is a hard-working boy. talks little, thinks much, and acts as police agent when the chickens are in the pot. Patton. Melvin Glenn: Despite his pleasant smile, we accuse Pat of very many things. Although he shines in Math, and is our baseball manager, we believe that he is infatuated with Winthrop, Perry. Nelson: Perry's quick, dignified speech reminds us very much of a French- man’s and as we see him walking briskly along we feel that we have surmised correctly. Phillips, Hoyt Spurgeon: Hoyt has a very dignified name, and it our readers could see his stately progress across the country they would feel awed by his majesty. Vaughn. F.stox Crawley: Eston is a hard-working fellow, and renders good service both in the class-room and in the mess hall. His pleasant smile makes him welcome everywhere.FT THE- BONHOM IBTH The Interment I. While the earth in selfish languor lay, all wrapt in careless sleep. They lowered a bier in a sepulcher ami covered it high and deep: And there were none hut the angels there o'er this lonely bier to weep. II. Oh. many started this lonely grave, one finished what they’d begun: One bore the bier to its resting place, thru clouds of sorrow dun; One piled the clods on the lonely bier, one only, only one. III. But no grave was dug in earthly soil—'twas deep in a human breast; And no human form was sadly placed in the sepulcher to rest: But a noble, grand ambition died which might all earth have blest. IV. Yes. a dreamer sank 'neath the blight of scorn, while cold earth dully slept; So he buried all in his woe-crushed heart, nor guard, r.or vigil kept; But his own deep eyes were too proud for tears: so only the angels wept.

We had longed for the day to come when we should he college students, but lo, as we heard the blood-thirsty erv of "Hats! Rats!!" the glory of our ambitious anticipations faded away. But as the north wind's cold blast tends to develop the tiny oak into the huge giant of the forest, so the howling, ruthless welcome welded us into a mighty organization. Our Freshman year and the joyous vacation soon passed and as Sophomores we took possession of tin campus September 20. 191-1. striking terror to the hearts of the quaking Freshmen. To our sorrow we found that several of our noble classmen had fallen by the wayside, but we were glad to note the presence of a number of recruits who at that time aspired to enter our ranks. At the first meeting of the Class the following oflicers were elected: President, P. 1C. Coster; Vice-President, W. II. Cook; Secretary, IT. R. Drake: Treasurer, 0. B. Brodie; Historian, Mark Osborne: Class Editors. T. C. Johnson, D. G. Watson; S|M nsor, Miss Janie Gilreath. Soon after the election Messrs. Coster and Cook withdrew from school, and Messrs. Payne and Rice were elected to their respective ofliees. The European war spirit spread itself to our campus, and on the 12th of October our forces mobilized on the hanks of the rushing Reedy. On the op|KK-ite shore stood a long line of barbarians. The forces were met t engage in a mighty tug of war. From the neighboring hill tops the spectators urged on the barbaric line of defense; hut despite the crie- of the multitudes, the gallant troops under the 17 banner drew their opponents through the turbulent waters of the muddy stream. We must now pa.- on to the athletic field. In football our Class is well represented by Grcssette. Rice, and Wood; in basket-ball by Drake and Jeter. At the present time we are dreaming dreams and seeing visions of the annual Class reception, which will he given in April. We feel that the time already passed has been spent in a profitable manner and we trust that each member of the Class of T7 will press forward to his graduation day and in the years to come reflect honor upon his Alma Mater.

FAP2M E Kkksii.max Sponsor and Ci.ass OjiickrsFTthe- bonhomie A Short History of the Freshman Class the year of our Lord 1914. the date thereof being September :9th. over lifty youth.' assembled at Furman I’nivcrsity to com-nence their college career. These fellows came from many parts f South Carolina, and some, indeed from other States. 'The above composed the Freshman Class of 1914. 'The enrollment increased to over sixty after the Christmas holidays; but. with the failure of some to return, the number remained about the same as at the opening of the session. 'The total enrollment, however, was considerably less than that of 19IS. 'This fact needs little explanation, if one but calls to mind the financial stringency brought on by the Furopean war. Naturally the “rats” felt out of place in their new surroundings, hence they immediately got busy to make themselves acquainted. A few days after the formal opening they were compelled to go up against the Sophomore Glass in a tug-of-war. 'The place of struggle was the hanks of the Reedy River. Such great strength was displayed in this pull that twice the rope did give way. Finally, however, after a fatiguing struggle, the poor Freshmen were pulled into the water of the river, much to the delight of their opponents. A short while after this event the (Mass officers were elected and an organization was effected. 'There were, of course, men of ability. All new men were well pleased with this organization, for henceforth they would work in co-operation. And well they had reason to feel so: the worst was yet to come. To be sure. Freshmen have no easy time. The first few days of college are well remembered by them. Thy recollect distinctly the abilities of the “Round-Here-Club” The Freshmen of 1914-15 have displayed their ability in all fields of college life. In the class room they have done well; in society work, they have shown the same zeal. ‘The (Mass Football 'Team was not defeated in the Junior-Freshman game, and bad an excellent chance to win the college championship. had the deciding game been played. ’The representation in the basket-ball squad was largo, and if we be not mistaken the baseball nine promises to be composed partly of first-year men. 'Taken as a whole, the Freshman Class of 1914-15 has in no way fallen below (lie standard. Having adopted “vincimus above” as their slogan, the Freshmen have made themselves conspicuous in all the activities of college work. It is to he Imped that next year will see many of them back on the campus.MnKMBBSniWMMBRMBMM BONHOMIE" I itMl r i» I'KJ'SM NIKSDormitory Rooms3 np OJ 0 2 3 i awmrnm wm Ct-V'Vt Inter-Society DebatersF) THEr BONHOMIE Adki.piiian Liti kaky Sikiity1°) THE-BONHOMIE Adelphian Literary Society ETA SECTION' OFFICERS FALL THRU SFRISG TERM President................J.

We owe many thanks to the Faculty for helping us to gain such an advantage. Coach Bible comes to us very highly recommended and with unusual training for his position. lie has had special training in athletics under A. A. Stagg. “Pat" Page, assistant coach at the Fniversity of Chicago, and under Trenchard of Princeton Fniversity. He has had experience in coaching at Carson and Newman College. Savannah Institute, and Allen Academy, lie has already proved himself an efficient coach and has won the confidence of both Faculty and students.

Watts, football lias been carried through its second year at Furman. Though he did not have a winning team. J. W. did not become discouraged. During the whole season he had the interests of the team at heart, and his efforts to make the year a success placed him in high esteem, lie arranged a good, well-balanced schedule, including some good trips for the team. When we consider the trying circumstances under which J. W. was forced to labor, we must conclude that he managed well the financial affairs. Much honor is due him for his service. Captain C. II. Tinsley Captain Tinsley well deserves to come first among the winners of the block letter this year: Brenke upheld the record which he made last year as a football player. He began at bis former position of right tackle, but was later changed to right end. It would be difficult to find the man who could beat him catching forward passes.

The words were half-whispered by a youth of fifteen, who paused as he spoke them and glanced behind him at an old colonial dwelling standing in the midst of an ample grove whose soft foliage offset the staid, precise lines of the building itself. In one hand he carried a heavily packed suit-ease, in the other a ease holding a well-loved violin. lie placed both on the ground before him, stopped in the large red road that led away from the farm, removed his hat. wiped the sweat from his forehead and then fully realizing that he was leaving the old farm in truth, he turned squarely around for a farewell look. Yes, father had grown harsh and he must leave. Impulsive, almost impetuous. he did not even stop to question his parent's attitude. Some might have accused the father of selfish grief over the death of his wife, some might have supposed him absorbed in the business world to the neglect of his son, or might have moodily philosophized that, after all, a father’s affection is more a product of pride than is a mother’s. Not so. however, with our hero; he only felt that his father’s words stung, and that he was going, going out into the world where he would hear them no more and where he would soon he known as a great musician. Ilis cvc wandered from the house to the river valley nearby where the green, plumy willows, hidden from sight by their own foliage, waved and trembled in the fitful breezes that swept through them and looked so soft and inviting that one almost felt an impulse to race down the hill and plunge from the edge of the bluff into the great feathery billows of the green inland sea that they formed. All day they had stood there in the heated summer landscape, as light and graceful as the foliage in a Japanese painting with a bracing sense of the coolness that lurked in their shadowy depths. Then the lad thought how he had seen them six months before, their long graceful twigs, bare of leaves, presenting in the wintry landscape an interlaced network of rich sepia. Such a warm brown it was that even in the depth of winter it had made one warmer to look at it. a brown that held something of the beauty of Nature’s brighter colors, yet without their shallowness; and at the same time suggested to one all those wonderful depths of mystery and shade which darker colors hold, yet without repelling one. “And mother loved them so!” thought the lad. Then the sun. sinking on the western horizon, lit up the clouds with crimson, gold and lilac, addingjPPfflfr BONHOMIE the glories of the cloud-plumed heaven to the beauty of the willow-plumed valley, forming a landscajH? of the most exquisite and soul-questioning lovelines.- . A lover of harmonious sound-tones must surely he a lover of color-tones; and as he looked, a strange, wonderful sense of awe and mystery crept into the boy’s being. Once more he lifted his hat, but now he bowed his head and his lips were about to whisper something that arose within him. No. he must not say it—he must not pray; for if he did. he might feel impelled to go back. He hastily replaced his hat. caught up his bundles and started again, saying to himself as if by way of excuse, “I haven’t time for that now. if I'm to catch the first train to-night.” Brightly the stars blinked and twinkled in the icy heavens above. Down in the river valley the winter breeze shrilled through the willow twigs, tossing them to and fro in the air like the locks of some giant sprite of nature. But the lone figure that moved along the road, through the shadows of the willows, thought nothing of their beauty and grace now. As he was stooped in form and shabby in attire, one might have easily suspected that he had dropped from the midnight freight train as it passed the nearest station. "Thought while I was in these parts I’d pay the old man a Hying visit," he muttered. "Yes, a nocturnal visit, lie used to keep considerable coin around to pay off the hands.” On up the hill he ambled, arriving finally at the gate, where he lifted the latch and entered the yard. There was a stir in the porch, an interrogative growl, and with a low bark an old yard-dog came down the step, thrust his muzzle against the legs of the newcomer with a reminiscent whiff and wagged his tail as if to say, “You’ll do.” The man patted his head and whispered, “Mum, Jip, old boy; that’ll do." Then, pausing in the clear starlight, he surveyed the house before him. tried a side door, thought a moment, and stepped to the base of a tree that grew by the entrance. The trunk itself was too large to climb, but the man remembered the large stout vine of a trumpet-creeper that had once grown there. He felt for it in the dark, found it and swung himself into the branches above. Thence he passed along a stout branch to an upper window, which he reached, tried and raised. He passed inside and even after an absence of three years, found moving about in the dark no unfamiliar task, for the house was one of those old Southern country dwellings where the great heavy pieces of furniture occupy the same place from years end to year’s end, if not from generation to generation. He passedFT THEr BONHOMIE7 through the room to the stairs and then down, avoiding the well-remembered creaking step, and pausing at every move with tense breath to listen. Thus he made his way to the room where his father conducted his business, found the old desk and with the aid of a small pocket Hash-light, began his search. First top drawer to the right, nothing there; first one to the left, only some scraps of paper; middle drawer, locked but a few trials from a bunch of keys and that, loo, is open. “Ah! I thought the old miy would have burned this!” He lifted from the drawer a portrait of himself as a lad of twelve, looked at it a moment, laid it down, and continued his search. Everything in that drawer was neatly enclosed and labeled, here a bunch of “mortgages,” there one of “receipts,” and in one corner a small box. The intruder’s hand was passing toward that when his eye fell on a familiar object, familiar even to his hasty glance, one of his chilhood treasures, almost forgotten, an old linen handkerchief with scenes from Mother Goose in faded colors. A tremor passed through the extended hand; he hastily grasped the cash-box and lifted it—it wii' heavy—but as he raised it. bis eye fell on an envelope beneath labeled “music.” Moved with a strange curiosity, he picked it up and saw further written. "Composed by my son Edward, at the age of eight.” He set the box down, opened the envelope, and found inside a childish medley which he himself had forgotten soon after its creation, not even earing to preserve it long, yet his father must have cherished it all the intervening years, even when he seemed harshest. W ith an oath he ejaculated softly, “I must have judged too quickly after all. AH these trifles among his most precious possession, and right where he could see them oftenest! I may he a devil, hut I can’t do this. I'll go away and he’ll never know—never. But if 1 had known this, three years ago!" lie replaced the things, locked the drawer, and pa scd upstairs to the window. Again, he lowered it behind him as he went out and swung himself down the vine toward the ground hv the door-step. He was hut three feet from the ground when his hand slipped and lie fell with a sharp erv, striking the hack of his head sharply on the lower stone step of the porch. A dull pain shot through his heart and he remembered nothing further. When he opened his eyes, lie was lying in a comfortable bed. A low whine from old dip greeted him and the familiar voice of the old family physician saving, “Good dog. good dog. If you hadn’t looked so furiously, the fellowTTT'H bonhomieT might have frozen.” ITe turned liis head on the pillow and met the anxious gaze of an aged watcher who spoke, “Edward!” “Father!” The old man moved across the floor, dropped on his knees heside the bed, took his sons hand in his own as he murmured, “Messed he the name of the Lord, for this my son was dead and is alive again, was lost and is found." Just then the rays of the rising sun shone through the window brightly and across the river valley where the willows, with their branches pruned by the breakage from the iee of the preceding winter, stood arrayed in a glow of twigs of last summers growing that seemed richer, warmer, and browner than ever before.

Johnson, '17.Jft THErBONHOMl Cx Seven Inches hot, .July afternoon a wagon, creaking and groaning beneath it-rden of tents and camping outfit, slowly wound its way through z red hills of Western Carolina. Its driver was Buck, one of se happy-go-lucky individuals whom the cares of this world never seemed to bother. As the team shied at a large rattler, giving the wagon a quick jerk. Buck glanced around to sec if the other two occupants were still hanging on, and, having satisfied himself of their presence, he turned again to hi- driving. Mike Hester was a short, dried-up fellow with thick, black hair hanging over a low and narrow forehead.’ The third occupant of the wagon, •Julian Dupre, stood six feet live in his stocking feet, with shoulders to match. A slouch hat with a brilliant Mexican coni for a tassel, shaded his steel blue eyes from the burning rays of the sun. An iron-gray shirt, unbuttoned at the neck, exposed a well tanned chest. A blue-dotted handkerchief was loosely knotted about his throat. He had just been graduated from the E. and M. Coliege. and this was his first summer in the field. The wagon bumped on over the rocky road. Presently Julian turned to ‘he driver, and asked. ‘‘How far is it to Elmwood? We’ve got to get there before sundown in order to pitch these tents.” Buck meditated a moment, spat enough tobacco juice to drown a pig. and replied slowly: “Waal, Cap, some sez hit’s four miles. Some sez hit’s six. But I alius found it ter be five ridin’ and seben walkin.’ ’Cordin’ to my jedgment, we’ll git thar jes’ about sunsit.’’ In about two hours the surveying party reached the place where they intended to locate their camp, Elmwood, a famous ‘‘.summer resort” for that section of the country. A dilapidated mill, two log cabins with the chinks all gone, and a weather-beaten frame house constituted the village of Elmwood. When house parties were not occupying the cabins, the loafers and would-be fishermen from the nearhv towns did. As the wagon rolled up, the first sight to attract Julian's attention was a group of men gathered about a cracker box, and playing cards. This week was their turn in the possession of the lints, for the tin cans, paper, fodder, and other litter shouted of the presence of a house party during the preceding week. The group was busily engaged, and the arrival of the wagon was unnoticed until Julian asked if they knew where there was a good site for a camp.FT THE- BONHOMIE One who .seemed somewhat belter disposed than the others looked up, jerked his thumb over his right shoulder and said: “Down in that Hat. It's a low place, but the river never gets that high.” Mike Hester strolled up, glanced stealthily at the leader of the group, and said: “Wat’s the chances on a bottle of beer to wet a fellow's lips. This heat’s awful.” “Sorry, son,” replied the other, “but we’ll be here until morn'm’, and we ain't got but three dozen bottles and a half-keg.” Julian called back to Hester, and told him to hurry on with the wagon. The sharp commanding tone of the civil engineer irritated Mike, hut he thought it best to obey, and. so, resolving to become more intimately acquainted with the gamblers, he bade Buck drive on. Julian soon found the Hat of which the man had told him, a plot of grassy meadow, interspersed with oaks, with a broad, deep, moving river on one side, and a thick forest on the other, afforded an excellent site for the camp. The sound of approaching voices announced the arrival of the remainder of the party, who had taken a short-cut through the woods. “Why, hello! Here's Jule already. You got here in a hurry." exclaimed Mr. Williamson, the head of the party. “What do you think of this place for a camp?” asked Jule. “Fine, fine. Is there plenty of good water near?” asked Williamson. “Yes, sir. A spring fifty yards away," said Jule. Meanwhile, the men began unloading the wagon, and opening up the boxes, and soon the sound of axe and mallet was heard as the driving of pegs and the pitching of tents went steadily on. After an hour and a half of hard work, the men heard the cook’s supper hell with pleasure. Supper over, the men scattered, some to the store, some for a swim, and Hester going to make his acquaintance with the gamblers. The light in the chief’s tent burned late. The head of the party and Jule Dupre sat discussing the prospects of the survey. “How long shall we be out?” asked Jule. “T don’t know, but probably until Christmas, Jule. And by the way, while I think of it. what shaggv-headed fellow is that who came in with you on the wagon?” said Mr. Williamson. “Ilis name’s Hester. I knew we would need an axeman, so 1 picked him up at the station, and told him to come along.”Tr th bonhqmieYK AH went well at the camp, and everyone was in high spirits. The cook knew his business, and the drinking water was fine. The tonic of life in the woods was a good one; so in a few days the men had amazing appetites. Everyone liked the two civil engineers, and soon Mr. Williamson was nicknamed “Foxy,” while Jnle passed as "The Young I n.” These terms of endearment were used, however, only, among the men in their talk about the engineers, never in addressing them. .. One afternoon, about a week after the party had begun work in the field, Cricky. the cook, came to .Jule with a long face and a tale of woe. Two sacks of Hour and a ham had disappeared. "All right, Cocky." said Julc, "keep your eyes open. There arc a number of loafers around." The following Sunday everyone except Julc left camp and went to the Ealls. As he lay on his cot reading. Jule thought he heard a slight rattling noise in the kitchen tent. Remembering what the cook had told him. he slipped around to the back of the tent. The flap was down. With a quick movement. -Jule jerked it back, and there crouching back against the wall wa Hester, a sack of flour in one hand and a side of bacon in the other. Just then someone went crashing through the bushes nearby. “Get out of here, and get quick, you dirty thief!” shouted Jule. "Do you understand? You’re fired. Don’t you ever put your foot around these parts again.” That night when the party returned Jule related the incident to Mr. Williamson, and dismissed the matter from his mind. Several days later, however, he noticed that Hester was still hanging around with the gamblers. Soon the members of the party noticed a marked change in Jule. lie ate but little, and drank cup after cup of the strong black coffee. 11 is hand became unsteady. Cocky noticed every morning when he filled the lamps with oil that “The Young In's” was quite empty, and lie shook his head mysteriously. Saturday afternoon came, and with it the time for the comparison of results and the checking of figures. Jule slowly walked around to the chief's tent, and settled down to the task. Hour after hour they figured. At length Mr. Williamson arose. “Your figures arc seven inches out all the way around." he snapped. "You’ll have to do better. The company can’t afford to pay for your errors.” Jule gathered up his papers, and returned to his tent. "What can be the trouble?” he thought. “This is the error on which I have worked for the past week.”TJ THE- BONHOMIE The same thing occurred the following Saturday. ‘‘1 am sorry, Jule,” said the head engineer, "but, unless you find that mistake by Monday, I shall have to request your resignation.” •Julian Dupre sat up the entire night figuring, checking, and figuring. As he sat eating his breakfast and trying to think where the mistake could be, he happened to hear Cocky say to his helper. Sam: “Ugh, you orter seed whut a sour look dat feller Hester wuz wearin' dis niawnin’. Dey say he los’ ebry red cent lie had las' night.” “Sho' did.” replied Sam. “I wuz dere lookin’ on as a mere observer, and dat bunch picked him jes’ de same as ef he wuz a partridge." These words attracted Jule's attention, and he determined, if possible, to use this knowledge of Hester's financial condition of affairs. All day he thought and thought, and but one sight appeared before his eyes. If he looked up the river, far away in the distance, the figure seven with two straight marks at the upper right hand side danced before him. He could not get away from it. try as he might. But by night he had formed his plan. Calling one of the men, he walked on up to the store where the Knights of the Deck were engaged in their usual occupation around the cracker 1m . . "Men." he said. “1 have a dangerous undertaking, but I am willing to pay well for it. It means ten dollars for thirty minutes' work. Who will 1m? the first to volunteer?" Hester was sitting nearby looking sourly on, but as lie heard these words his face brightened up. Jule had picked his man before he had uttered a word. The men sat looking at each other quest ion i nglv. Each seemed to move at the same time, but Hester jumped to his feet, the vision of a railroad ticket and a square meal lief ore him. “I'll go,” he said. “All right. Bring along that rope,” said Jule, pointing to a coil of hemp about one hundred feel long. After making their way by devious paths, over logs, through briar patches, and across gullies, the three arrived at the edge of a precipice. Jule held up his lantern, and peered over into the inky blackness. “Come, Hester,” he said, “tie this rope around your body. I don't guess it will break. I want you to get a letter which I dropped down there yesterday. It is very important, and I must have it before morning." Hester hesitated, threw down the rope, and started back to camp, but just then the vision of the railroad ticket and square meal r appear.d.FTth bonhqmieYH Slowly .Itile paid out the rope until lie came to a white string which he had tied around it about twenty feet from the end Hester held. lie then began to pull it back' up. and'then to pay it out again, keeping this up for several minutes. In (lie black night Hester thought that he was descending all the time. As he swung between heaven and earth a horrible thought came to him, "Suppose it breaks?" Just then he heard Jules voice so close that it startled him, for by this time he should be at least seventy-live feet from the top. When he thought of the greater distance he would fall he instinctively reached up to grasp tighter hold. To his horror he found that the rope had been cut. The two frayed-out strands touched his lingers. He hung in mid-aid. supported bv but one strand! Slowly he heard the words. "Mike Hester, why did you move that stake? Now. you rascal, if you don't confess, I am going to drop you. and you know the rest." Yes. he heard, and he realized that he was up against stern reality. This was no practical joke. The firmness of Jule s voice told that it was a matter of life or death. 11 is only chance lay in speaking the truth. The man whom he hated had him in his grasp. Slowly he confessed to moving one of the pegs, upon which the entire calculation for the survey depended, out of the way exactly seven inches. As to why he had chosen the number seven, he did not know. 11 is motive was revenge. "And now. you scoundrel," shouted Jule. "I shall measure out your punishment in the same proportion that you measured out mine. Prepare to meet your doom, for by the time I have finished counting ten I shall send you to the bottom!" “One.” Hester now knew that there was no respite. He writhed in agony. •Two.” His entire black history began to pass before him. Once more he was a child at his mother’s knee. “Three.” 11 is murdered father lay before him. “Four.” A wrecked train, with the mangled bodies was the next picture. God! How long would this last? “Seven.”FTTH E BONHOMIE Drops of sweat burst out upon liis forehead. Seconds seemed years. “Nine.” One more, and lie would go to his doom. He hoped that Ood would be merciful. “Mercy." he shouted in despair. Again, the picture of the ghastly face of the creature whom lie had called wife lying in the pool of her own life's blood, her throat slashed from ear to ear. and of himself, a demon crazed with drink appeared. “Ten.” A shriek of terror escaped from Hester's parched lips. .Jule gave the rope a sudden jerk upward, and the body of the doomed man. bearing with it his blackened soul, crashed to the bottom of the abyss—seven inches below.

It was not a large nor fashionable resort, but a quiet, peaceful, resting place. Nowhere did the birds sing more sweetly than on the banks of Lake Helen; nowhere were the flowers quite so sweet; no other lake afforded such delightful opportunities for boating, bathing, or fishing. Hither came the weary business man for rest and recreation; to this fair spot came the fashionable woman, tired of society and longing to be near the heart of nature. Here the joyful were sobered by the majesty of the God-created mountains, and the sad were comforted by the music of the bright-colored birds. One evening, just as the sun was sinking behind the glowing mountain peaks, a woman whose youth was already fading arrived at this enchanting place. She was still beautiful, but her face was sad and sorrowful. People said to themselves that here was a woman who had suffered. And truly she had. Ruth Nelson, the newcomer, had retired to her room. From the windows she could look out toward the mountains. She drew a chair up to th open windows and sank into it with a sigh of relief. The moon was rising, and i gentle breeze came down from the lofty tops and rustled the leaves of the tree It wafted sweet odors from the garden below and whispered, ••Peace” to tic; tired heart. Ruth murmured to herself: “At last, perhaps. 1 have found rest. Ah, how weary, how tired of life I am!” Long she sat looking out at the inspiring mountains. Rut she was not hearing their message, nor listening to the music of the winged creatures. Several years ago the tragedy of her life had occurred, and to-night she was living over those days of sorrow. For years Henry Leonard had loved the fail’ Ruth, the belle of Clarkson. He had felt sure that some day he would win her love. He was a student at Parkville Cniversity, whence he carried on a regular correspondence with Ruth. During the vacation days he was constantly with her. and all went well. When he went away for his senior year, however, he left behind a dangerous rival. Dr. Nelson was a handsome young fellow, just out of the Medical College. He had decided to begin his career in Clarkson. The young people of the city eagerly welcomed the handsome doctor. Rut he was immediately attracted by Ruth Rurwells. lie began at once to be very attentive to her. Ry the time Henry went away Ruth and Dr. Nelson were great friends. Henry, however,TJ THEr BONHOMIET never doubted her faithfulness, and went away full of hope. In the letters that passed between them during the year, the doctor’s name was never mentioned. At last the college days were ended for Henry. Proudly bearing his diploma, he returned to Clarkson, with joyful anticipations of what the future held in store. He planned how he would work for a few years and then buy a cozy little home, where Ruth and he should live happily together. lie was not long left, however, to indulge in these blissful (lav-dreams. Only a few days after his arrival at home, In heard how fond Dr. Nelson seemed to be of Ruth. He heard how they were frequently together at balls, and how certain everyone was that they would make a ’‘match." But Henry was not of a jealous disposition, and he till trusted the sweetheart of his boyhood days. Within a few days lie called on her. She welcomed him warmly, and yet he felt that he could detect a change in her manner. He continued t call for several weeks, and each time he went away with the same impression. Ruth herself was not sure which one. of her suitors she preferred. She had believed for a long time that she was in love with Henry, but now she began to fancy that she had been mistaken. Dr. Nelson had fascinated her The young physician was jealous, and ere long his jealousy manifested itself in more ways than one. At every opportunity In urged her to have Henry discontinue his visits. Ruth yielded herself to him more and more, although she sometimes wondered if she was really in love with either. Dr. Nelson began calling more often, and Henry's visits became less frequent. One night just before the Christmas holidays, Dr. Nelson called. Outside the snow fell fast, but within the coldness was forgotten. Dr. Nelson drew his chair closer to Ruth's, and began talking in a serious tone. "Ruth." he said, "I want my answer to-night. I have known you for a long lime and I know that I love you as I can never love another. 1 am well able to care for a wife. My wife will be honored. 1 offer von that position. Will you accept it?" Ruth's face became slightly pale. She was not surprised, for this was what she had expected. She smiled and extended her hand for the sparkling diamond which the doctor was only too glad to place upon her linger. Only once did she think of Henry. Then quickly she east the thought from her. Why should she not be happy with Dr. Nelson? Perhaps she didn't love him. but. as he said, he was well able to take care of her, and Henry had not yet begun his career. Yes. she was resolved. She would be the doctors wife. Preparations for the wedding were now begun, and poor Henry was almost crushed with grief. lie resolved to go West and start life anew. But heFTth bonhomie was destined never to reach tin Western shores. The train was wrecked, and Henry Leonard was among the killed. Years passed hv and Ruth's married life was very unhappy. The news of Henry’s death, which came to her a few days after her wedding, brought to her mind the realization that she had given him the one great love of her life. The fascination that I)r. Nelson had exerted over her soon wore away. Little had she known when she married him that he was a drunkard. After his marriage he drank more and more. Neither one was happy. They had been married only a few years when the doctor took pneumonia, and since his constitution had been weakened by drink, he failed to recover. And now, on the quiet shores of Lake Helen, sat Ruth Nelson, alone and forsaken. As she looked hack over the years that had passed, she realized that she had wasted her life, and that she alone had been the cause of her unhappiness. She bowed her head and wept. And then it was that the gentle breeze brought to her the message of the mountains. A voice whispered to her heart that life was not yet ended; that surely God had something for her to do. With a new determination she lay down to sleep with a comforted heart. It was long ago that Mrs. Nelson sat looking out at those wonderful northern mountains. She has found peace and comfort now by living her life for others. Day after day she fills with kind deeds. There is not a child in Clarkson who does not love her. and every home in the city welcomes her sweet, smiling face. Sometimes she thinks of the years of sorrow that are past but their bitterness is forgotten in the love of those round about. T. C. Johnson, 17.IT TH Er BONHQM 1E-TK The Saddest Thing Oh. the maddest thing in this sad old world is not a funeral pall. Nor the lonely sound of rattling clods which o'er a loved form fall, For there are things which are e'en more sad than the death of dearest friends; They come when those once loved live on. while the love between us ends. Oh. the saddest thing, and the dearest thing, ’ncath the heaven's arch above. Is not the death of our dear ones. No! 'Tis the death of our dear one's love. 'Tis sad. tho love lives warmly on. when a friend to the grave has gone: 'Tis sadder to bury the love itself, while the one once loved lives on. Andrew Lek PickknsTJ THEr BONHOMIE For The Praise of Men HKI) Starr was worried. However hard lie tried, he found himself unable to go to sleep. While his room-mate lay snoring away lustily in the bed near him. he himself tossed restlessly and felt that his brain, like his body, was in a whirl of unceasing activity. AH was quiet about him. save when now and then the spring zephyrs crept whis-peringly through the verdant young foliage of plant and tree. Even nature was in this, her own way. lulling herself to sleep in all the calmness and tranquility of which she is capable in her gentler moods. Vet how vainly he longed for the coining of that sleep so able "to knit up the ravelled sleeve of care,’ and to bring repose to mind and body. A thousand times he closed his eyes and sought to exclude all in the outside world from that penetrating little mind’s eye of his. but a thousand times in vain. Each time lie made the effort, the more vividly did one unchanging picture appear on the white wall before him: that of a young man, stately, erect, impressive, delivering some kind of speech; and, closely interfused with this first picture, a second, in which the same young man stood beside a young woman, graceful, dainty, adorable, and took the marriage vow administered by the kindly old preacher. Such was the picture that troubled Fred—and why? The first represented an event in which he had always thought of himself as the principal. For well-nigh four years he had coveted the honor of being selected by the faculty as Senior Orator, an honor which carried with it the Janies Anderson Senior Orator’s Medal, the most prized of all the medals offered in-I'niversity. lie had always considered himself the best orator of his class, and of the school, for that matter, and no one doubted the fact of his ability to speak. At least, no one had ever expressed a doubt in his presence. Hence, by a little effort on his part, he had been elected by his class-mates to try out in the preliminaries with several other good men. all of whom In considered his inferiors in the art of public speaking. He had set to work on his oration confidently, and on that very day in his own opinion had far outclassed his competitors in the contest for the medal. Strange to say, though, the faculty had actually given the medal to another who. in their judgment, won over Fred by half a point. He had come away that afternoon sadly disappointed and feeling, as the self-centered, shallow-brained man always does under similar conditions, that everybody was “down on him. " as if everybody had time or inclination to l estow him the attention of l eing “down on him.” Truly, he is a big man, to be down on whom the whole world turns aside from its own tasks. A bigger man would haveTT THEr BQNHOMlE'(°f turned his face to the future with the determination to make his defeat a stepping .stone to future victory; hut not so with Fred, and so he was worried. Truly it seemed to him that the very fates themselves were against him, when on that same night George Andrews, the very one who had so lately defeated him. knocked and entered his room. George had come to tell him that on the preceding night he had asked Florence Holmes to he his wife as soon as he should obtain his degree, and that even now he was engaged to he married to her. Fred did not realize at the time that George had been under the spell of this approaching happiness while delivering his oration and had thus beaten him, though the truth dawned upon him later. Upon hearing the announcement of the engagement, however, he was so amazed that he sank hack upon his bed, speechless with emotion. He longed to strike to the lloor this happy young man. never more attractive in his frankness and simplicity of hearing, and yet never more demon-like to Fred. Why. he asked himself, had this fellow crossed the smooth path of his life to steal from him both the coveted honor and the girl whom he loved? In spite of his emotion, though, he muttered a few words of congratulation and closed the door behind the departing form of one whom he had formerly esteemed, in so far as it had been possible for him to esteem any one, hut whom he now hated with a hatred most venomous. Hence, when he had gone to bed. his mind continued to erv out. as it were, against the injustice of the treatment accorded him at the hands of the fates. At last brute passion and self-preservation prevailed upon him to endeavor to avenge himself on this upstart, this despoiler of his happiness. lie fell asleep, and in his semi-stupor dreamed of a plan whereby he could accomplish his purpose. One week later the final “exams” for Senior began. On these “exams” naturally hung the question whether the individual Seniors would obtain their degrees or not. Passing on Ethics was the only question which gave most of the members of the class much concern, and so a great deal of work was done in preparation for the examination on this subject. At last the time for this examination came and the class assembled, anxious to see the questions. George, upon seeing them, smiled with an air of apparent gratification and opened his pad to begin writing, whereupon, to the surprise of both professor and students, a bunch of papers on which notes were closely written, fell to the floor. This was conclusive evidence to all that George had been intending to cheat, though he denied any knowledge as to the origin of the notes, and though he had never been known to do a dishonest act before. So, when the governing body of the school met, they were compelled to declare George Andrews guilty ofT ) THE-BONHOMIE endeavoring to cheat, and to ask his immediate withdrawal from the school. As a result, on the following day he left, bearing his burden of shame, and dishonor gravely, saddened only by the fact that his betrothed had not been able to believe him innocent, and had been compelled by her parents to break off her engagement with a man who could deliberately throw aside his honor on an examination for a paltry degree. Fred was now the logical man to win the orator’s medal, and at a special meeting of the faculty was granted the medal, having fallen only a half-point below the now disgraced George, in the oratorical contest. Having accomplished this, beset out on his task of winning back the heart of Florence Holmes, though with less success, as will be seen presently. Meanwhile, it was learned that George Andrews had not returned home, but had left for unknown points. Two years later an express train was speeding on its way from New York to New Orleans, making the rails to sing and the air to shriek with its velocity, when suddenly it ran into an open switch. A crash—a roar—and in another moment a tongue of flame leaped up from beneath a mass of wreckage, while groans of suffering, dying men burdened the air with a mournful refrain varied only bv the fiendish crackling of the flames. Rescuers, however, soon set to work and presently many bodies, some lifeless, others contorted with pain, were laid (nit on the grass in one long line. In that unhappy number a close observer might have recognized Fred Starr, beneath the clotted mass of blood which covered his face. There was the same thin, sharp face; there were those same restless, iron-gray eyes, as they moved about seemingly endeavoring to call for immediate assistance from the busy doctor, for the lips of the injured man could as yet produce no sound as they quivered mutely in the effort to speak. At last, when the doctor arrived, he realized the hopelessness of the |)oor man’s condition, though he did succeed in reviving him to such an extent that he could make himself understood in broken sentences. The dying man wished to make a confession, he said, so calling two men to take the confession down in writing, the doctor passed on, having done all that he could to soothe the man's suffering. The confession was addressed to Miss Florence Holmes, and was simply to inform her that the dying man. Fred Starr, had himself placed the notes in the examination pad of George Andrews, and that he was the cause of Georges dishonor. George himself was absolutely blameless in the matter. Jealousy and disappointment had forced him to this deed which he deeply regretted, and for which he begged forgiveness. He could add only the hope that Miss Holmes .vuitld seek the unhappy object of his trickery and brighten his life again by aFTthet bonhomieT renewal of the broken engagement. A few moments later his lijxs ceased to move and Fred Starr was no more. Great as was Miss Holmes’ regret at the untimely end of her friend, still greater was the joy of knowing that her former friend had been innocent, and she immediately set to work to find her fiance again. A month of anxious search passed, and in spite of the efforts of herself, parents and friends, she had no news of him. One day, however, while passing the hotel, she observed a familiar face in the lobby. It was no other than the somewhat saddened face of the man she sought. He recognized her and started to speak, but turned away choking and disappeared before she could recover from her surprise. Bewildered, she rushed home and confided to her mother what she had seen. That night her father made inquiries at the hotel and learned that the man whom Ins daughter had seen was registered as a professor in a western school. The father immediately sought an interview with the professor and learned that, though under another name, the man was no other than George Andrews, who had come back under an assumed name, merely in order to see the face of the girl whom he had always loved. IIis delight upon hearing of Fred’s confession was pure, but his grief at the news of the death of the man who had wronged him was all the more intense. All things were soon cleared up and George again resumed his old position of honor and esteem among the people of the little college town. As a result of the confession, the faculty gave him his degree without an examination, and as a token of confidence and esteem, the trustees of the school offered him a better position as professor of Latin than the one he held out in the West. A few weeks later the wedding of George Andrews and Florence Holmes was consummated, and today a happier family can not be found than that of Doctor Andrews, Dean of-University. E. H. Henderson.JTT THEr BONHOMIE7?8 Our Parting Word The time has passed very rapidly and already we are approaching another Commencement season—a season when we shall go out as graduates from this school. Realizing this fact, we do not find it such a great joy after all to Ik Seniors. Though | ossibly more honors have come to us this year than ever before, and though we may have formed closer friendships with those already dear to us, our greatest joy as Seniors have sometimes been tinged with an instinctive sadness. It is true that this year is to witness our final triumph at this place, and that it is a year full of achievement for us. but we are still sad, for our departure means that the simple joys of college life are soon to be taken away from us. Those every-day happenings in the dormitories, those gatherings in the dining-halls. those Ethics and Philosophy quizes, those society debates—all those phenomena which go to make college life worth while will soon be the possessions of others. Then again, our depart up' will mean the severing of many ties, the breaking of many intimate associations. We have learned to love those with whom we have lived in one common dwelling-place for all these years, and we cannot part from them without a wrench of our very heart-strings. Then, the matrons of the dormitory have shown us every conceivable kindness, and we would have them know that we are deeply appreciative of the many favors they have bestowed upon us, both when we were sick and when we were in health. After four years of joint labor with our professors, some of us have come to the point where the thought of separation from this noble set of men is painful in the extreme. They have given their time and labor unstintingly to the task of developing in us the right kind of character, of transforming us into the highest type of Christian gentlemen, and we are sad to part with the noble examples of their daily life and the pleasure of fellowship with them. As we step out of the harness we leave to you. our successors, the task of upholding the name of dear old Furman. It is our purpose to reflect honor on our Alma Mater, and we expect the same of you. In athletics, in oratory, in debate, Furman can succeed only because of your efforts, and it is our earnest hope that no man will refuse his services to his Alma Mater, but will give her unselfishly the best that is in him. OH ER i student, from the time he enters college, envies the Senior the honored position which he holds in the student community. All through his Freshman, Sophomore and .Junior years he longs for the time when he shall be a Senior. So it was, we confess, with us.P'THEr BONHOMIE FT the- bonhomie-' Furman University Edwin M.

Our strong fort 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 chief function of a business college is to furnish jobs rather than a 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.
