However, the members of the faculty and the student body have all united with us in our effort to present the James Millikin University with her first annual, and although it may seem a, feeble attempt we hope that all will judge it kindly, As to the arrangement of the book, a word of explanation is needed. During the past semester of this year, the Senior class became so satu- rated with psychology that it is consistent with its m-anner of thinkin-g to arrange the Millidek according to Mr. John Dewey's Psychol-ogy. It has been our desire to give the James Millikin world and those who are interested in it, a knowledge of our interests as a student body. The literary productions, designs, illustrations and general workmanship are in themselves a demonstration of what we can do, and a tributes to those whose names they bear. The appearance of these contributions- in the Millidek but partially express our appreciation of them and our gratitude to those who have made an arduous task delightful, 6 LJJISHEIAINII NIHYTIIINI SEIIAIVI' EIHL 'EJ NIHIEIH NIS NH 'SKLHV 'IVHIEIEIYI .KNOXOOEI OLLSEIINIOLI J.

EL Walker, secretaryg O. B. Corin, treasurer, T. T. Roberts, W. J. Wayne, A. R. Mlontgomery, Peter Loeb, T. A. Powers, J. K. McDavid, C. S. Needham and A. R. Taylor, ex-officio. On May 1, 1901, an informal tender of the presidency of the University was made to President A. R. Taylor of the Kansas State Normal School. The formal tender was made June 11. With much hesitation he accepted the position and entered upon the discharge of its duties, July 1. In company with Mr. Millikin and Mr. Loeb, chairman of the building com- mittee of the local board, he visited a number of the leading a.nd best equipped institutions of learning in this country for the ptirpose of study- ing planls, buildings, and equipments. These gentlemen also conferred with several architects and on the recommendation of the full committee on architects, the board selected Messrs. Patton and Miller of Chicago, Sept. 28,1901,as architects for the construction of the buildings needed. On October 16, the board definitely located the college in Oakland Park and decided to purchase two tracts of land on the west and north respec- tively, making a campus of about 35 acres. - After a careful study of the topography of the site, together with a number of styles of architecture, the Elizabethan was selected as the most appropriate for the college buildings. The general contract for the erection of the three main buildings was let to H. B. Walter of Danville, Ill., on February 10, 1902, for 8107,160, the board furnishing the brick for the same. Other contracts were let as fol- lows: The stone, John Pasold, Decatur, 86,883. Painting, J. G. McCarthy, Chicago, 82,574 'Cement floors, etc., Fisher 85 Thimens, Decatur, 82,430. Heating and plumbing, Decatur Plumbing and Heating Co., 919,924 Electric wiring, etc., Decatur Supply and Fixture Co., 81,448 Hardware, Morehouse 8: Wells Co., Decatur, S1,184. The brick, Decatur Brick Co., 3S16,559.43. On September 29th, the general contract for the erection of the power house and machinery hall was let to B. S. Brooks, Decatur, for 2B21,626.50, the bo-ard furnishing the brsi-ck: the contract for the heating system includ- ing setting of boilers, engines, etc., to the Decatur Plumbing 8: Heating Co., for 34,388 The brick, account Decatur Brick Co., cost 33,999.20 The total cost of the four buildings including the equipment of the power house was about SB216,000. Considering their size and character, experienced co-ntractorls and builders express' great surprise at their low cost, while every one is delighted with their beauty and convenience. The cost of the equipment including furniture, apparatus, machinery, etc., was about 3330.000 which has sin-ce been increased by about S15,000. I6 The corner stone of the Liberal Arts building was laid by the Llasgnic fraternity on June 12, 1902, Grand Master George M. Moulton. officiating. The address was delivered by Dr. W. H. Penhallegon. of Decatur. Relying upon the promises of the general contractor that the main building would be ready for occupancy in September, 1902. the board an- nounced the opening of the institution at that time, but was later compelled to postpone it until 1903. The building was dedicated on June 4, 1903, with imposing ceremonies. the dedicatory address being given by President Theodore Roosevelt. ATUOHS' the other Speakers On the program were State Superintendent Schaeffer of Pennsylvania, and representatives of the leading collegeg of the state, of the various boards of the church, and of the different interests of the- city of Decatur. A vast throng attended these exercises. the occa- sion being one of great interest to the city and vicinity as well as to many friends from abroad. The exercises cf the opening day. September 15. 1903. were attended by a large company, a most gratifying proportion being prospective stu- dents. The organization of the classes showed that students had enrolled in every department in which courses were offered and that every class from the first academic to the junior collegiate had a sufficient number of memlb-ers to perfect an enthusiastic organization. Even the Senior class contained three prospective candidates for the bachelor-'s degree. The total enrollment for the first year was 7123 for the second year it was 764. representing 23 different states and territories and 163 cities and towns. , The present members of the general board of trustees of the lfniver- sity are as follows: W.

College Commission The College Commission already mentioned was incorporated nn-lt-r th-- laws of the State and tlnough its w.sc ani nnliring efforts has not only raised large SUIUS of money for the institution lint has arouse-I wldt'-spri-.nl interest concerning it throughout the patronizing synods. Ur. W. -T. l':H'N' has from the first been its guiding spirit. though In-arttly se tiiw ndvd' hy scores of the leading pastors and laymen of the church. Rev. A. VV. Hawkins, pastor of the tfnmlwrland Presbyterian vlnin-It at Decatur at the time of the original proposition by Mr. Mtlltkln. soon after resigned his pastorate and became the financial agent of the vom- mlsslon. With marvelous energy and a most infections enthusiasm. he Visited it large number of localities and had great satisfaction in so--tnu the labors of the commission and of the local committee crowned with IT victory. In the lsipi-ing of 1903, his strength failed him and he was compelled to take 11 vacation. He failed to rally, however, a.nd on December 30, rested from his labors. He was laid away in Greenwood cemetery with honors befitting so useful, so devoted, so lovable a servant of the Kinig. His works do follow him. Rev. A. H. Kelso, of Alton, Ill., succeeded Mr. Hawkins in the agency of the commission, but after a few weeks' experience in the field accepted the pastorate of the church at Topeka, Kansas. In June, 1903, Dr. W. T. Ferguson of Charleston, Ill., was appointed financial agent. He brought to the position a long experience and a wide acquaintance that enabled him to awaken increased interest in the enterprise and to secure many thou- sands of dollars for its endowment. In the midst of his great usefulne-ss and when apparently in vigorous health he was suddenly stricken with paralysis and died -three-e days afterward without a word to his- friends. He was buried at his old home in Martinsville, Indiana, on Dec. 11th, 1905, with a multitude of devoted friends doing him loving tribute. He- was ing, deed a prince in Israel and a leader among men. The original m-embers of the commision were: Rev. W. J. Darby, D. D., Indiana, presidentg Rev. R. M. Tinnon. D. D., Illinois, vice president, Rev. J. W. Laughlin, Illinois, secretaryg J. N.

Leaving the bench and tools of the machine shop, the future adminis- trator entered a store, where he learned the principles of trade and indus- try and gained a knowledge of men. A In 1864 he enrolled as a student in the Model School of the Illinois State Normal University at Normjal. While there he was a member of the class reciting to P:rofessor L. B. Kellogg at the moment the latter was called to meet the Regents of the Kansas State Normal School, to which institution Professor Kellogg was called as the first president. The stu- dent could no-t then forsee that nearly two decades later he would be called to the same position. Later, he attended Knox College at Galesburg, Illinois, for one- term, entering Lincoln University at Lincoln, Illinois, the following term., from which he graduated with the class of 1872. On the c-ompletion of his course at Lincoln University, he was offered a tutorship which was ac- cepted reluctantly, as he had a desire to study law. The work at Lincoln proved so successful that before the end of the first year, he was offered a full professorship as head of the department of natural sciences, in which he remained until his election to the presidency of the Kansas State Normal School in 1882. The ten years at Lincoln were a period of growth and preparation. Lifelong friendships were made and the home was es- tablished. For nineteen years President Taylor presided over the Kansas State Normal School. I-Ie found it with a small building and an attendance of four hundred students: when he left it in 1901, the attendance was over two thousand and the buildings were large and well suited for their use. Six or more years before he resigned the presidency of the State Normal, it had become the largest teachers' training school under state control in the woarld, and had an international reputation. The graduating classes frequently numbered more than a hundred. To few educators has been given greater opportunity than he had in Kansas, and to few has been given .so fine a fruitage. The demands upon him for lectures were many, and his vacations were largely sp-e-nt in making lecture tours. Yet he found time to write arti- cles for periodicals, religious and professional, to write books, and to do a multitude of things that seemed almost impossible to one so busy. One of his books, "The Study of the Child," published by D. Appleton Co., belongs to the International Education Series. Over twenty-five thousand copies of this book have been sold. It has been translated into the Jap- anese and Spanish languages. He has also written the following named books: "The Government of the State and Nation," "Apple Blossoms," "Civil Government in Kansas," "The Church at Wo,rk in the Sunday School," "Among Ourselves," being a joint author of the first two named. His great energy, ability, and educational success made President Taylor the leading educator in Kansas. To resign an assured life position as president of such an institution after all difficulties had been surnmounted and the future promised more of ease in the enjoyment of a great work accomplished, was the most mo- mentous and difficult decision President Taylor had ever been called upon to make. Kansas people generally protested against his final decision to 22 respond tothe call of his church and the friends of his youth to return to Illinois to build from the foundation to the tower a modern university. These first five years have amply confirmed the public judgment of his adtministraztfive powers. Hzis untirinfg energy and great zeal are the admira- tion of all. The administrative duties of the president of the The James Millikin University are exacting, yet Dr. Taylor finds time to teach ten hours per week, and to lecture extensively throughout the state. Since coming to Illin-ois, he has served or is serving as president of the following organiza- tions: 'The State Sunday School Association, The Illinois College Federa- tion, The College Section of the State Teachers' Association. The Universi- ty Club of Decatur, and The Elducaitional Commission of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. In 1890 Dr. Taylor was president of the National Council of Education, the most important educational body in our country. President Taylor mariried Miss Minerva Dent of Wenona, Illinois, who fs in entire sympathy with him in his Christian and educational work, und lives in the hearts of his friends as his peer. Their home has always been open to the stud-ents, to whom it is an ideal of hospitality and re- finement. They have two daughters, Mrs. Allen S. Newman of Emporia, Kansas, and Miss Kittie M. of Decatur, who has been active in University circles. Docto-r Tayloir is a man of warm personal attachments. His affections are knit to family, friends, students and his work. All his purposes seem to be formed in the spirit of helpfulness and thoughfulness. To the stu- dents he is counselor and confidant, their advisor in difficulties, their helper in every legitimate ambition. Governing without set rules, he appeals to the highest instincts of honor. Severe he can be when severity is needed, but in his severity there is an intuitive sympathy and an abiding hope that acts as an appeal. His faith in the ultimate triumph of the right cannot be shaken. He has oftern written. "There is no longing of a nioble soul that hath not somewhere its satisfaction." VVhen others de- spair, he hopes and labors on: others may retire in defeat. but he knows how to win a victory from defeat. His pride in the University. its clean- liness, its strength, and its walls of brick and stone, is always strung. hut never so marked as is his pride in the clean hearts and pure minds of the young men and women of his flock in whose mental and spiritual develop- ment he finds his supremest joy. 1 S. 23 THOMAS W.

SENIOR HISTORY It was while the Millidek board was holding one of its regular weekly meetings in the University library, just when we were "busy as cranberry merchants" selecting and anranging material which was to g-o into the annual,,word was received that the party asked to write the Senior History would be unable to deliver the goo-ds on time. For a minute we were all in a flurry as to just what was to be done for a chronicle of the doin's of the dignified mortar-board wearers. The editor-in-chief straightened us out with the announcement that "something must be did at once as copy was already due the printers." Each member racked his brain trying to get the facts in the case together. After two hours of hard thinkin', each one reported Hnothin' doin." "Try it again" said the editor, but the muses were not pre-sentg they must have been busy just then with another annual board. Without the muses present it w-ould be imposs-ible to produce an up- to-snuff and complete history of the ileven bright and shinin' lights of J. M. U. Thinking that good eatin's might put some of us in the proper moo-d for such a task, we doused the g1i'1T1 in the library and hiked thru the dark corridors of the Liberal Arts hall, stumbling and falling up stairs to the Domestic Science kitchen. Immediately on entering the Sanctum-sanctorum. of Mrs. Chambers, we rigged up a dark lantern with an incandescent light, and a dirty dish-rag which we found riding a clothes horse, while Lehman kindled a fire in the gas range. The girls found the necessaries somewhere- and we were soon chattering over the mos-t scrumptuous welsh rarebit that ever was, one which would satisfy the most exacting and prove that the Senior girls were cooks of the first water even if they haven't a diploma from K. M. school. The Welsh rare-bit was just the thing, for soon each one remembered this and that college event in which we played an important part. Impor- tant did I say, yes indeedg for we had cut our wisdom teeth before becom- ing knowing Sophomores at Millikin and of course knew the ropes, when to holler and when to keep mum. In Lit. society, glee club, orchestra, track team, tennis, base ball and foot ball we have always been representedg which is evidence that we are "some pumpkins" outside of our books, and as to thos-e there is no question at all. Especially do we star in psychology, logic, philosophy and everything else in that line. The first excitement we experienced after becoming defenders of the Blue and White was on April 15, '04, when we took down the Freshies' col- ors which the brave lads- had attached to the flag-staff on the tower. Th-ey will tell you they came out victorious but the facts in the case are 36 these. Their flag was hauled in and part of it burned to amuse the crowd of students who were watching from the campus below, and some of it was divided among the then Sophmores and is now prized as a memento of the occasion. Later in the day they hung out some more rags. but as it is not custo-mary to fuss over more than one flag a day we paid no atten- tion to it. It was but a short time after this when a little bird gave us a hunch about the Freshman picnic which was to be held in Fairview Park. We tried to pipe the grub and have a picnic of our own at their expense, but a scream from a Freshman girl who was all eyes, spoiled our plans and We W-e-re only permitted to shine our shoes in a few chocolate cakes. For this three fellows enjoyed the extreme pleasure of a Turkish bath-a,d- ministered by several husky and angry Freshmen, and a fourth not need- ing a bath just at that time t-ook an unexpected trip to town. Many other interesting and noteworthy events there were which we have neither tim-e nor space to d-escribe, but do want to say in brief that we have tried not to miss anything in the way of side issues and to take our pl-ace in all student enterprises. As to social functions We think we have done the proper thing all the Way thru the piece and feel that we have been a howling sum-ess with one exception, our reception in December given to the faculty :md r-nllefrff classes. The lack of faculty interest and too many stags was the main cause. Permit me to say right here, male members of the Frat-ulty. and rol- lege men, "things ought not so to be."

Not that anybody will get 320,000 for writing :i history of Ihr- .Innior Class. They probably won't get "Thank you," and will have to xvrilf- it over if it doesn't suit. But it doesn't matter anyway. The Junior Class speaks for itself. In fact they don't even llzlvf- lu mlk at all. They just need to stand up, and let you view 'em. and Ihr- r-'st of the College might yell themselves black in the fm-e. and llif-yll fzulf- :may like the Blue Alsatian Mountains. Now, there's the Freshmen-pretty fair infants all :i gon. fini- floifr hardly know what to call 'em.

To be sure they got sort of pale about the mouth, but they just say "Give me a minute to pull myself together," and come up smiling like nothing had ever happened. They have that much self-control that they can sit around and let Bull W'illiamslon bawl out Mabel Jones and Curly Evans and not tingle in their finger nails to throttle him. The girls are all heart specialists, and the fellows are all sure true sports. - ' The Faculty beam like Phoebus morning car or the Gold Dust Twins, when they think of the Junior Class. The President breaks spontaneo-usly into number 102, and the under classmen are that jealous that they go 'ro-und looking cross-eyed like they were condemned to count the dermati- col freckles 0-n the end of their noses for the rest of their days.

N. B.-His name was really Field." This was a case of poetic license with more license than poetry. T'his history will, like the epitaph, have more license than poetry. About two years ago, a bunch of about the greenest goslins ever turned loose, ventured as far from home as the J. M. U. On their arri- val there, they were taken in charge by Doy Romine, who had kindly elect- ed himself protector for his class mates less knowing than he. Piloted by this noble youth, the whole bunch passed safely through the time of registration. Romine then resigned in favor of Dr. Shaw. It was Dr. Shaw who really organized the class. He it was who in- fluenced by continual cries of "Liberty or Death," called a meeting of the impatient Freshmen. Many were there who haven't attended a class meeting since. But we haven't had such attractions since. Dr. Shaw had the candidates show their paces. My! How Starr Cole strutted before that admiring f?J throng! How Samson chewed his gum and grinned! John Byrne from among the crowded reporters, added his sage a.dvice. It was a wonderful meeting. The class colors were chosen soon after this and a sample hung out for the inspection of Sophomores and other upper classmen. They didn't any of -them seem to like the colors, judging from the attempts made to dislodge them from the smoke stack. There they remained, the pride of all Freshmen and the chargin of all Sophomores. The Sophs published a little hand bill printed full of golden advice to Freshies. This was further explained in a neat little talk by Dr. Taylor. There commenced shortly, a series of attempts at hazing which I will not dwell upon. But hair cuts, duckings, doses of quinine were common matters for a time. But we all came out alive and with most of our re- mains. When we came back for our second year we felt "awful" big. We just thought tha-t the Freshies on l-ooking at us must feel like the Georgia negro who was seen carrying an armful of books. Some one as-ked: "Do you study all those books?" "No sa.r," said the negro, "dey's my brudder's. Ise a ignorance kind er nigger side him, boss. I-Ie done gone cyphered through addition, partition, subtraction, distraction, abomination, justifi- cation, hallucination, derivation, creation, amputation and adoption." 48 Whether the Freshies thought it or not, we were very sure we were the "brudder," but that feeling slowly Wore away. We started in to help the Freshies as we had been helped. Our kind advice was printed in Proper form and pasted around in prominent places. The Freshies did a little fine art work which we found necessary to change. Once We even had to send some of them home. But we have been patient and long suffering, forgiving their little weaknesses. But We have been real decent this year. A Sophomore took the Brown prize and two of the members of the debating team are Sophornores. frf course, we will no-t attempt to explain how this happened since nobody but Sophomores could understand it. But it is done now. and c:in't be helped. Nothing will be said of what we might do in the next two yours. 'We might not do anything, but what we will do remains to be seen. I Wouldn't attempt to say what we will do for fear of missing it so fair. Please do with this history as the uneducated preacher :idx-isa-d his flock to do With his sermon. His text was, "Thou makesr my feet like hind's feet." But he pronounced it "hen's feet"and remarked.

THE SPIRIT OF PEACE The June sunlight poured through the great oakes outside, and check- ered the gray benches and rough floor with patches of warm gold. The air Was heavy with the Odor Of violets and shy wood flowers: a drowsy sound of bees came through the open windows: a huttf-rfly tilted lazily on the door-sill in the sunlight. Peace rested over the little, white meeting- house in its quiet nook among the woods and hills. 11 vvas First-day'rnorningg the Phiends had already gathered in nieet- ing. The room was divided midway by a low partition. on the right sat the rnen dressed in coarse browwigcni Uielefh the nwnnen with gray suk hen- nets, and soft spotless kerehiefs.

As he took his seat his head was devoutly bowed. After a few moments more of srilence, Benjamin Brant turned to- F'riend Samuel Aldon and greeted him with a grav-e quiet han-d shake. Me-eting was over, and with a little stir and murmur, the men and women shook han-ds and arose. They paused in the little clearing outside the door, exchanging kindly greetings, then separated in little groups. Benjamin Brant, with his fam- ily and other Friends, followed the old worm fence which skirted the lit- tfle burying ground, and turned into the beaten path through the wo-ods. I-Ie was talking quietly to Friend Samuel Aldon. "It is, indeed a question, near my heart, Friend Samuel. I have had a great visitation of the Spirit since we spo-ke of it at meeting last Fourth-day. Thy words touched me greatly. If aught of this war and this drafting of men should come to any of our Society, it would be at great affliction. 'Twould require much faith to feel that God was dealing justly." Samuel Aldon shook his whi-te head gravely, unde-r his broad:-brimmed hat his face was calm and beautiful. "It wauld be, as thee says, a great affliction. The shadows of war have drawn nigh even to our quiet dwellings. May it prove but a shadow and pass on! Those who feel it not within their hearts to refuse for conscience sake may hire substitutes. Surely none will so far wander from the dictates of truth as to do otherwise." Benjamin Brant sighed heavily. For two years the murmurs and echoes of war had reached them. But no Friend took up arms: deeply opposed to war of any kind, they were doubly opposed to civil war. Late Fourth-day afternoon Benjamin Brant sat with his family on the cool, wide porch, Elizabeth on a low stool at his feet, resting her head against his knee, her mother near, her hands folded quietly above her Bible. Elias sat on the porch step, and in the silence he grew restless. At last he broke out with a tense, nervous voice. "Father, I think thee has already guessed what I wish to say. More troops are wantedgl am going to enlisft. I know how thee feels about it. But I cannot see it otherwise-. I must go!" Tlhe boy, raising impulsively, had come quite close to his father's chair, looking eagerly into the averted face. There was no answer. In the heavy silence Elizabeth ran to her mother and sobbed aloud. The gentle Quakeress made no sound, but stroked the girl's head slowly, with cold, trembling hands. The woodbine leaves cast wierd, dancing shadows on the porch floor, a tiny Wren peeped from its nest under the eaves and burst into an ecstacy of song. Benjamin Brant rose, breathing heavily. He faced his son with a stern, angry look, and slowly laid his hand upon the young shoulder. "My son!" There was a world of reproach and bitterness in his choked voice. I-Iis hand fell from the boy's arm, and turning quickly, he went 74 Within the house. The little mother rose abruptly and followed him. Ellizabeth sat looking at her brother with frightened eyes. His face was stern and pale. "Elizabeth," he said sorrowfully, "They do not understand, To Wait will only make it harder. I am going now. Tell them goodbye. Elizabeth, take them this letter, and tell them I am a Quaker." The boy's eyes filled With tears. He held the sobbing girl close for an instant. and was gone down the path. It had been even harder than he had expected. But he could not think of the War as they didg he, toog must follow the leading of his conscience. He sighed heavily and quickened his pace. The foot-path turned into the clearing: the evening light touched the little meeting-house softly. The sun was low now-so low that beyond the clearing only the upper slopes were in the light, while the shadows lay deep and thick along their bases, and in the little ravine-s. He leaned against the old worm fence and rested. The crooked rails were overrun with a tangle of grape and woodhine. It felt cool and yielded softly under his weight. Propping his elbows on the top rail. he Watched the light shift on the slopes. and the shadows lengthen in the ravinesg the crickets had begun to chirpg far off. faintly and more faintly. he heard the sheep bells tinkling away toward home. owls began to hoot in the Woods on either sideg one, two, three. lori querulous moans rose from the gloomy mass of shadows. He shivered and turned his eyes away from the Woods. The mellow light lay like a mist of gold over the grave- yard. The low headstones, marked only with the simple initial letters. gleemed white against the rich green of the myrtle which ran riotously over the graves.

His fave wore ever that proud. stern look which Elizabeth had noticed in meeting on that sad l-'lrtlt-'lm' after Elias had gone. The long summer days grew shorter and rlpened into the mild and crimson glory of autumn. The woodland path was HHS' NWI Fllllmt' an-I bright colored leaves. The berries of the woodhlne on the porrh hurried to purple and the leaves to scarlet.

So the autumn dragged slowly into winter. Each First-day morning they wound through the snowy woods to the sheltering meeting-house. But never, since that June morning so long ago, had Benjamin Brant spoken in meeting, and no one dared mention Ellias to the stern old man. Wiiiter passed. The saintly face of the mother had grown pale and delicate. She spoke more seldom of her lost son, as she now called him. The wood flowers, blooming to the very edges of the path, awakened little interest, even Elizabeth gathered them and brought them to her. "Yes," she would say, "Thee loves them, doesn't thee? Ah, well, I love them too, they were blooming just so when he left us-violets and little wild flowers." And smiling sadly she would kiss away Elizabeth's quick tears. A year since he had left them! Elizabeth sighed. It seemed long to the lonely girl. Her own grief would have been enough, but her generous heart ached most for her father and mother. "Ah dear," the Quakeress said sadly, -one J une m-orning, ffhe loves' his country so much better than his home. If war were right or just, but it is sinful. Thee knows, Ellizabeth, how it has seemed to us. And yet he loves this best!" In a passionate outburst of grief, Elizabeth resolved that he-r brother should know, and poured out her loneliness- in a confused, reproachful letter. She begged him to come home, pictured the mother so frail and patient, and told him of her sad words of an hour before. It was all there in the letter, all their pain and suffering for his mistake. Days passed. Ellizabeth's heart reproached her at times. But as she noted the deeper shadow on the mother's face, she felt that it was only right for him to know. Fifth.-day morn.ing dawned clear and bright. How like that morning of a year ago! Elizabeth was thinking this as lszhe walked up the woodland path 'tearing open her brother's letter. She stopped abruptly, staring at the blotted page in terror. She read it through slowly, scarcely comprehending what she read. Then without a sound she sank upon the matted moss and violets. Never had she so needed all her Quaker fortitude. For an hour she prayed there in the joyous woods, gazing with sorrowful re- proachful eyes upon the letter. Her brother was sho-t as a deserter, an-d it was she who had made him a deserter, He begged her not to blame her- self at all, he was not bred to war, he could en-dure i-t no longer. He would have soon deserted anyway. His only regret was that he could not have seen them first, just onceg he would see them all sometime. But she must not follow him just now-the little mother. She must stay for Elizabeth's sake and the father's. Father would under- stand now. He was a Quaker still- Ellizabeth rose slowly. Her face. was as pure as an angel's in its sweet repose. It was God's will. She heard the low sound of Voices in the sunny sitting room, and entering, she softly closed the door. .76 For days Death hovered close over Benjamin Brant's home. But the sweet spirit of the little mother did not leave them. And when she was strong enough to Walk along the woodland path again, there was a wonderful Ilrighrt in her face. She had been very near to the angels and had caught a bit of their radiance in her eyes. She had been very near her song and he had loved them best, after all! He was a Quaker still. The sternness had gone from the father's face, leaving it beautifully tender and gentle. Meeting today was blessed with the divine Spirit. No one spoke, but from the very heart ascended silent prayers. . Near the close of the meeting Benjamin Brant arose. His voice was clear and strong. "Let us go out into God's light," he said gently, and With his Wife leaning upon his arm, he led the away across the grassy yard to the great pine tree. He paused besides his father's grave, with the plain letters "E, B." on the low headstone, his daughter knelt beside him. sobbingg and with his hand 2' sting upon her bowed head, he lifted up his face in the light that sifted through the pine boughs and prayed as he had never prayed before.

"O, it's aye just th-e sea an' the rain, an' the rain and the sea." she said in a Voice so tragic and sweet that the tears started his eyes. He turned to the Window and I saw his arm shake. A shriek of the wind hurtled by, moaned in the angle and then slashed the sea on the rocks. The lass cried o-ut, and started up -with a stare, but the master force forestalled me and lifted her onto the settle. "Now, tell me where you come from," he said, but just 'the sea.' was all she would say, and that with a moan.

THE NEW MESSENGER BOY Mr. Randall slammed the money-box into the safe with a jerk. It is exasperating to have one's plans go wrong. With another jerk he turned to the small figure beside him. "Well, what do you want," he growled. The 'little colored boy .hitched at his suspenders and answered impu- dently, "Gee, but you're grouchy! Boss call you down? Mr. Randall gaspe-d. As a junior partner in the firm he felt his worth and dignity, a feeling evidently not shared by the senior partner's new messenger boy, who continued pleasantly: "Well, never mind. D'on't let it bother you. Mi-st' Burton sent me he-re on business." He exhibited a letter. "No, you don't!" as Randall reached for it. This is for Burton, Junior. Wihere's he at?" I "He's upstairs," answered Randall curtly. He stepped into the hall and called Burton, who appeared in a few moments, carrying a dirty lab- ratory coat and with his face decorated with various streaks and splotches. "Why, what's the matter, Mr. Randall?" he exclaimed as he threw the coat on a chair. "You look-ah-disturbed. Oh, hello, Petey, what do you want? Got a message for me?,' Pete handed him the letter silently. He stood somewhat in awe of this sprightly young man. Burton tore open the message and read it with evident surprise. "It's from dad," he announced. "He very firmly and unimistakably says that that ore must all be tested before seven o'clock in the morning, and there's every bit of a half a day's work on it yet." "Yes," broke in Randall, "and just after that he left the shop to take the train: I happened to remember that it's Washington Birthday and I can't get in the bank, so I'll have to lock up that fifteen hundred dollars here- in the office safe for the night. And I'1l tell you I don't like the re- sponsibility! " He rapped impatiently on the desk. 80 "Well, I'll tell the watchman to be careful," said Burton. "Has he come yet?" "No," was the reply, 'iand that's the worst of it. He just 'phoned me that he's sick and can't come, but that he will send around his nephew or cousin or someone to take his place. Told me his name-Vfatts of XVat- kins, or something like that." Pete, who had been amusing himself by whirling in an office f-hair, stopped revolving to listen. ' "VVell, I sup-p-oisie it's all right, Mr. Randallj' said Burton. "wld Dan surely wouldnit send anyone who couldn't take care of things. Besides you needn't worry, because I'll have to be up in the testing room until imetty late, finishing up that ore." "Thought you were going to the club dinner," said Randall. "That ore has to be tested tonight," answered Burton briefly. "Well, well, that's certainly too bad. We'll miss you at the dinner. Can't anyone else do the testing?" "No, not very well. It's rather a peculiar lot this time, and l'1l have to finish it myself, since I've started." "I suppose you know best," assented Mr. Randall, "and l'll admit that I shall feel -easier about that money. I almost considered staying here myself for a while." He put on his hat and coat as he spoke. Burton laughed. "Oh, I guess that wouldn't have been necessary. "I-Iere, Pete," he added, as he slipped into his long coat again. "go and get me some lunch, won't you? Some sandwiches and pie or something." I-Ie tossed a coin to the boy, who left. making a face at Randall hy way of farewell. Mr. Randall, himself, departed soon after. and llurion hur- ried back to the testing room on the third floor. 'Between three and four hours later, or. to be more exact. at about fifteen minutes past eight, the annual dinner of the lilercantili- Vinh was somewhat interrupted by a slight disturbance near the floor. Two or three waiters were gathered about one end of the big hotel diningrooin and seemed to be forcibly arguing the question of entrance with sonn- one who appeared more anxious to act than to argue. Finally an apolo- getic and somewhat breathless waiter approached Mr. Randall and whispered to him that an "impudent young rascal-insisted on siimkim: to him. Wou1dn't send in message-wanted Mr. Randall iwrsonally. R Would he-be S0 kind-just to step lo the door a niiiinln- esilisfy ili- boy.-" Mr. Randall deserted his cream sweetlirt-ads reluctantly. Going ont in the hall he found Pete standing his ground with di-if-rinin.i1ion. Ilan. dall looked annoyed. "Oh, it's you, is it? VV.elI. wliai's the lllililvl' now "Mlatter'?" echoed Pete. "You 1-olllv along: ilonn to iln- sli-vii an-l l'll tell you what's the matter. Conn- on!"

Mr. Randal motioned for the waiters to withdraw, and finally prevail- ed on Pete to tell his mysterious errand. From his excited and incoherent whispers Mr. Randall learned that when the boy had returned with Burton's lunch he had seen the substitute watchman, and recognized him as "Dummy" VV'atts, a frequenter of the levee district, where he had lived before Mr. Burton picked him up. He became suspicious after thinking the matter over, and decide-d it would do no harm to tell Burton, Junior what he knew of the man. He went back to the shop, but found all the entrances to the building locked, and when he iistened at the office door, he heard sounds that he was SURE were made by some one picking the lock of the safe. He could not get in to alarm Burton, and the only other thing he could think of was to find Randall, whom, he knew would be at the dinner. "And now, for Lan's Sake, come on!" he added, almost boiling over with wrath and impatience, "'less you're mighty anxious for Dummy Watts to get hold of that money!" Though Mr. Randall was a little incredulous and disliked to leave a good dinner and walk four blocks in the rain to quiet the suspicions of an imaginative small boy, he sent in a note to the president, got his hat and umbrella, and they started for the shop. Outside, the rain was in- creasing and R.andall's immaculate dress suit was considerably spat- tered by the time they reached the long dark building. He listened at the office door, but could hear nothing. He was about to get out his key and enter when Pete advised him to go around to the door on the other side of the building, which opened into the hall instead of directly into the office. Randall muttered something about "Nonsense," but Pete insisted, and together, they tramped around through the mud to the other door. Randall opened it without much attention to noiseiessness, for he was thoroughly soaked now, and stepped in. A blinding flash from a dark lantern, a glimpse of the en-d of a .revol- ver barrel with dim faces in the background, then a heavy woolen some- thing thrown over his head and in his eyes andmouth, and Randall found himself on the flocr unable to speak or see. He could still move. howeverg and did move violently, to the evident annoyance of some one who punch- ed him in the sides with a revolver. Mr. Randall decided not to move any more, and in a few minutes he felt himself lifted to his feet, half-car- ried five or six steps across the hall, and thrust without ceremony into the little dark entry adjoining the Office. Something else was thrust in after him, a low voice assured him that if he made any racket he would be cheerfully strangled, and the door was quietly closed and lockedi. R9-Udall 133' quite still for a moment. It had all been done so quietly and S0 9XDeditiously, that he wondered if he had not fallen asleep in his chair in the dining room and dreamed it all. But his sopping wet clothes felt realistic enough and he sat up and groaned. The groan was echoed from the darkness near him and he remembered Pete. After all, he was 82 glad he was not entirely alone. I-Ie raised himself stiffly and tried to disentangle his hands and head from the woolen coat still wrapped about him. Subdued rustlings made him aware that Pete was probably doing the same, and in a few moments he heard a cautious whisper. "Mist' Randall!" Randall had not yet been able to remove the heavy coat entirely from his mouth, but he replied with a muffled, "That you Pete?" I 'Course," came the answer, "think I'm Dummy VVatts? VVhat we goin' to do?" "Don't know. Stay here until those toughs get what they want, I guess. Would you like to walk around to the police station and tell them about it while you wait?" he added sarcastically. A thoiughit struck him als he spoke. Why had not Pete notified the police in the first place? With an effort he tore the coat from about his head and turned fiercely in the darkness. "You-you idiot! You're in with the gang! Any sane person would have called the police first, but you dragged me into this. I might have known something was wrong! I--" "Mist' Randall! Befo' God I ain't got nothin' to do with them! I didn't call any police because they wouldn't have believed me. Don't you know they was trying to take me to the reform school when Mist' Burton took me in an' gimme a job? They'd laugh at me. But I thought you'd believe me. I thought we'd save the money, Mist' Randall." His voice ended with a sob, and the junior partner felt somewhat abiasthed.. Just then the door was softly opened. a hoarse whisper sternly ordered them to keep quiet, and the door was again closed and locked. "Wle1l, we got to do something," whispered Pete. after a silence. "Any windows in this room?" "No, and the other door leads into the office itself." Pete was on his groping around the walls. "Whats this little door?" he whispered. "Feels like a little cupboard." "S1h! Itls the electric 'light switchboard, I guess. lt's in lit-ro. I wish Burton would take it into his head fo come drown stairs.

It's worth trying." He felt his way to the switch-box and opened the door. It was risky work groping about for the handle of the upstairs switch, and his matches were all soaked. By good luck, however, he found it without mishap and threw off the current. Up in the testing room Burton was humming cheerfully over a big bottle full of a muddy looking liquid, when the lights suddenly went out. Before he could raise his head they came on again and then began dancing crazily on and off. Thinking something must be wrong with the fuse, he went to the door, but to his amazement found it locked. 'The lights were behaving more oddly than ever. Now a long flash of light, then a couple of short flashes, another long flash and a short one. T'hen a com- paratively long period of darkness, and the flashes would begin again. Burton began to feel queer. Then he watched more closely and found that there seemed to be a regular number of flashes between the periods of of darknes, and the combination of long and short flashes seemed vaguely familiar. Suddenly he dropped the bottle with a crash. If the flashes had been clicks, then they would have been making the letters B-u-r-t-o-n. He stared at the lights. Sure enough, some one, somewhere, was signalling "Burton" In a few moments there seemed to be a longer interval of darkness than usual, and then the combination of flashes was different and some- what halting. Burton was bewildered, but he siezed a pencil and paper and began putting them down-la dash for a long flash, a dot for a svhort on-e -with increasing consternation as the mesage went on. Translated it read: ''Randall-locked-entry-watchman-safe-rob - help - back way- .hurry-Randall-locked-" - This was repeated several times, but Burton waited only until he was sure he had it correctely before he opened a window, climbed down a fire-escape in the rain, and started on a run for the nearest telephone. Randall was still prespiring and grunting over the switchboard when he heard a scuffling and com-motion in the hall and office, excited voices, hurrying steps, and then the sound of Burton'S voice. He hammered loud- ly on the door, someone hastily unlocked it. and in a few seconds he had the pleasure of seeing the watchman and his two friends prostrate on the floor beside the open safe, and the task of explaining to the seven police- men and Burton how it all happened. It was a short story, but he told it well, and Pete's triumph was complete and glorious. ' . "Now ain't you glad I made you come?" he crowed to Randall from hiS Derch on the office desk. "Still think I'm in cahoots with 'em?" He nodded at the watchman and his friends on the floor. Randall looked from them to the open safe and then back at Pete. "I don't want to tell you what I think of you, Pete." he said. "It might make you Vain. Here's my hand. Shake." -Bonnie Blackburn. 84 sf My A REVERSION TO TYPE LINOR MCPHEARSON, aged ten, entered on her first term at a pu-blic school with the traditions of her race weigh- ing heavily upon her. There had never been a McPlie:lrsf+n Who disobeyed rules- or failed to stand at the head of his class, and Elinor felt that the honor of her ancestors de- pend-ed on her living up to their high standard. Infleefi she Was easily the "star pupil," and her angelic behavior was balm to the soul of her teacher, who, being young and in- experienced, voiced her approval publicly and held her up as a model to the thirty-odd pupils who had no stantlarfls. The latter naturally had little use for models. especially for one who "put on airs" and was so palpably "teacher's pet." I-Iier enthusiasm in the matter of lessons, her refusal Ili cheat on examinations and the invariahle "Deptirtment. "99" on her report card Were constant reproaches to themg they dis- liked her and they took pains to show it. On account of frequent sick- ness Elinor had been taught entirely at home, so that the routine of st-hool life Was new and delightful to her. As long as the glamour lasted she paid very little attention to her school-matesg but after a month or two the Common Denominator and the map of Africa t-eased to satisfy her. and she began to realize her isolation. It hurt to be left out of the games at recess, to be quizzed and teased by the big girls, to walk home alone, a target for malicious snovvballs, while other little girls danced tiff hand in hand. Elinor could not reason it out, but she had a vague inkling of the cause and brooded over it, growing more and more sensitive. " If l'tl fail and get kept in, maybe 'they'd like me be'tter," she said to herself finally. So it came about that, one gloomy winter afternoon, she closed her Reader an-d face-d a recitation with the consciousness of being willfully .intl deliberately unprepared. She had not learned the Meinm-y Gems at the feet of the page, and failed on a Memory Gem, especially to be one of a series of failures, meant zero and "outer darkness." Quotations from great au- thor-s did not usually appeal to the occupants of Miss lleant-'s reeln. :intl the last hour of the afternoon was a bugbear to teacher and pupils alike. I-Iere-tofore Elinor had fairly reveled in Memory Gems, hut today she knew 0-nly that there were two, and that the first began, "l-le gnetl. sw i-t- t mai-l." Slhe had seen that by accident, but had immediately t-twei-eil it up with .i blotter. NOW she felt both guilty and exultant. and wanted tn get ever it C1l.1iCk1y.

Suddenly, when Sadie West "stuck" inthe middle of a line, E'linor caught herself mentally completing it, and was startled to find that every word was stamped upon her unwilling mind. She had learned it in spite of herself! Relief was quickly followed by dismay. Before she had time to readjust herself he-r turn came, and Miss Dea.ne's face took on the look of confident expectancy .it -always wore when Elinor recited+a look which the other children understood and resented. "Well, Elinor?" Her voice was almost a caress. Eilinor rose fsfullenlyg it had been SO h-ard not to study that quotation, and now it was all no use. She couldn't say she didn't know it when she did. "Be good, sweet maid, and let who will be clever, Do noble deeds, not dream them all day long, And so make life, death, and the vast forever One grand, sweet song." She slid into her seat again with downcast eyes. "You see, children, that i'sn't too hard for Ellinor to learn, and she is younger than most of you, too! I wish you would all do as well," Miss Deane added with a little sigh. Elinor's cheeks burned, and she stirred uneasily. She could feel with- out seeing the significant glances that always followed such remarks. The recitation dragged on tiresomelyg the teacher was discouraged, the children dull. Faces brightened as the clock struck four, but Miss Deane tapped the bell for attention. "Elinor McPhearson may be excused," she announced with dreadful distinctnessg "the rest of you may stay till you can recite our Me-mory Gem without a mistake." There was a knock at the door, and as she turned to answer it a little angry stir and murmur of envy and contempt ran through the class. 'Ya-a-h, teachelrlsa pet! Old Deane's pet!" muttered Slammy An- -drews across the aisle. "S1mar-ty, smar-ty, had a par-Qty!" came from behind, prolonged into an insulting sneer. Elven Sadie, who had accepted the largest half of E1inor's apple at recess, sniffed audibly and remarked, "I-Iuh! Think you know lots, don't you!" Elinor could have cried for self-pity, but McPhearson p-ride came to her rescue. White-faced and with tight-set lips, she walked alone down the aisle and around the room, nearly tripping once over an outstretched foot. She felt herself a crimi- nal with all those unfriendly eyes upon her, but 'she held her head high, and no one dreamed of the pathetic little formula she was saying to her- self to keep the tears back-one she had used before when facing torment- ing boys with snowballs-"My father was in the Civil War, my grandfather was a Senator! My father was in the Civil War, my grandfather was a Senator!" The door closed behind her, and the class resumed its rebel- lious struggle with "Be good, sweet maid," while unobservant Miss Deane wonldered why the chillld who was NOT kept in should look so white and tragic. The utter failure of this pittiful little effort to get down to the level of her schoolmates left Elinor desparingly resigned. She had not courage to try again, and took refuge in an outward haughtiness and reserve which was more offensive than ever. At last came- mid-year examinations 86 and promotions. Miss Deane's A class-all who passed-piled up unstffady pyramids of books on their geographies, balanced ink-bottles and pencil- boxes on top, and with many accidents and misgivings filed across the hall to Miss Burkham's room. Elinor hung back to bid Miss Deane a tear- ful good-bye, and in the strange room felt for a time more wretched than ever. But gradually things began to brighten. Miss Burkham was wise enough to avoid all appearances of partiality, and after a time the other children ceased to show open unkindness. Yet they stood aloofg they con- sidered Elinor "different," and she felt estranged and lonely, till a new- comer, Mollie May, entered the room an-d was placed across the aisle from her. Mollie was a sunshiny little soul, with a smile which melted all El.inor's -sihyness-. Discovering a mutual fondness for paper-dolls, they soon became friendisi anid spienft recesses in discussing card-board furniture. It Was Mollie who suggested to Elinor the possibility of lapsing from the other part of the McPhearson code-obedience to rules. "If you wouldn't be so good, the girls wouldn't call you stuck up," she ventured one day. "Why don't you be bad like I am? It's lots more fun!" Elinor waisi frankly horrified. That she, a McPhearson, could talk on her fingers, whisper, write notes, do the hundred and one things that Mollie d'i-d, an-d' not be disgraced forever, was contrary to all her train- ing. But the suggestion lurked in her mind, and gradually grew to seem less impossible. Mollie was so close and she had so much to say to her, that it became harder and harder to resist the temptation. Terry O'Neil. too, helped to bring about a subtle change of view. Terry sat in front of Eilinor, and was the very spirit of mischief personified. The light-hearted abandon with which he transgresed, and the unabated cheerfulness he preserved while doing penance, impressed Elinor in spite of herself. She could not help laughing at his pranks, and little by little, so insiduously that she did not realize it h-erseillf, the mantle of virtue began to slip from her. Timidly, awkwardly, with much pricking of conscience and nightly repentance, she began to imitate Mollieg and having ouee au- swered an unexpected question with a piece of butterscotch in her mouth. found it much easier next time. Terry's open-mouthed astonishment the first time she poked her foot out toward Mollie with a note tucked in her shoe only incited her to repeat the deed, for no one was surprised when other girls passed notes. Miss Burkham noticed an increasing restlessness in that corner, but never dreamed that Elinor could be concerned iu it. It was not till a few weeks before vacation that lCliuor's furtive mis- deeds reached their culmination, as a smouldering fire breaks suddenly into a blaze. Perhaps it was the weather: Certainly ovcry one was restless that afternoon. A warm breeze from the open window scattered the seent of the lilacs on Miss Burkham's desk. and a vagrant hee stumbled. dron- ing, over the purple clusters. Eilinor felt reckless and unlike herself. 'l'er- ry, aching for a sensation, loosed a hig, stupid June-hug on Molli--'s di sk from which she shrank back with a. little gasp of fright. llut l-Elinor was not afraid of June bugs, and as Terry leaned forward to ehuekle she eup- tured and dropped it wriggling down his haek. llis surprised eontorli--ns and Mollie's glee, were so enjoyable that study was out of the iiuesii.-ii Just then Alice Meafie. sitting' btqlillti. gave l':llll1ll"S long hraid JI vlrilleueze ing' tug. and she thrust ther hand. with a ruler, down lhrouigh the r-pam' .11 the back of the seat, meaning merely to R-ive Alive an friendly pr--.l-lin: lint 87 this was too common a diversion, and all at once Elinor forgot all her caution. Siiezing the hem of Alice's skirt, she pulled it suddenly up through the crack, to the great delight of all who were near enough to see, held on desperately with both hands, and by sitting on it resisted all Alice's shocked attempts to jerk it back. Gurgles of laughter soon made Miss Burkham lsook up. She found every eye fixed on the culprits, Elinoir shak- ing with mirth, Alice scarlet with embarrassment, and hunched forward in her seat in a most peculiar way. A "W'hat is the matter, Alice? Sit up properly and behave yourself!" she commanded. "I can't, she--she's sittin' on my skirt!" gasped Alice. Miss Burkham was amazed almost beyond words, but the unmistakable guilt on Elinor's face confirmed it. "Why did you do that, Elinor?" A "'Cause I wanted to," answered Elinor, truthfully, but with scanty diplomacy. Miss Burkham, stared. Elinor, the model of deportment! "You may stand in the corner fifteen minutes," she said icily, "and after school I shall request explanations? Elinor took her place in the designated corner, facing a patriotic quo! tation written in Miss Burkham's best hand, her ears rang, and every- thing seemed vague and unreal, as if it were all a dream. The confused tumult of her feelings finally subsided into wonder why she did not feel worse. Even the' thought of her parents brought but a momentary dis- comfort. "I must be awful bad!" she said to herselfg "I reckon I am as bad now as Terry O'Neil!" At the thought she glanced over her shoulder. Mollie smiled encouragement, and Terry gave her a long-drawn wink of ciomiradesfhip. E.linor lost all sense of disgrace. and fell to reading over and over drowsily the words on the blackboard before her- "I was born an American, I have lived an American. ' I will die an American!" Through the window she could see green branches tossing, and the bee kept humming in irresponsible song. The quarter-hour was nearly up when the reckless feeling siezed her again, and with it an idea of irre-- sistible temptation, a quick glance at the teacher, a hasty erasure and sub- sititution, and the quotation stood bereft of all dignity: "I was born an American, I have lived an American, I will die IN A CAN!'.' She heard Mol1ie's smothered giggle, and knew she was calling the attention of all her neighbors to the ridiculous change. "You may sit drown, Elinor," said Miss Burkham, unconscious of the new offense. ' ' Elinor turned and faced her schoolmates. The beaming appreciation on Terry's face was echoed all over theclass. The audacity of the thing had earned unstinted admiration. I-Ier eyes shone as she took her seat. Shame and remorse might come later, but now she felt nothing but re- joicing. The barrier between her and her fellows was down: she was one with them at last. Terry whirled around in his seat, and thrust a black, limber stick of licorice into her hand, and whirled back with an incoherent whisper "I say Ellie you're-you're GRlE1AT!" And Elinor McPhearson, erstwhile prig, sucked licorice behind her geography and cared not a whit for the traditions -of her forefathers. A -Clara Ma-rtin B-aker, '08, 88 WHENLOISDIED -iq O15 WHS mad? She wasn't angry or cross, she was .ll1Sf mad- She never had heard the word until the day before and this was just the oI.f.c.1-tnrii- ty to use itg for wasn't she invited to the party with "from two to four" written on pink paper with S0ld ink and wouldnt it bf- just the opportunity to wear her new dress. the silk cne with pink ribbon and here her mother h ill said "no," she must wear an old one. Yes, she truly was the most abused person in all the world. she had never thought of it before but she knew now she was. other girls Hut to wear their best dresses to parties if they wanted to but she never did. she always did have to wear something that would wash, XYhat if she di-l spill simething on her good dress, wasn't it a greater satisfaction to know it was on something it would spoil and have every one pity her and say what a shame it was and they wondered what her mother would say, than to have only a few glances given her and hear some one say, "Oh well, it doesn't matter. it will wash out." By this time she had wandered out into the garden and was lying down behind the rose hedge. It was a dull. sleepy afternoon. just the right kind of a time to think over troubles and she lay looking up :imong the green tree tops that seemed such a long way up in the sky and won- dering how all the different kinds of green shaded into each other and who fixed them that way: and then after awhile away up .ili-we Ili-e very highest tree she saw a feathery white cloud float across :i piece of blue sky. Then a bee began to buzz around her face and after it had :zone away a bright red lady-bug crawled up on the rose hush beside her. "Lady-bug, lady-bug. fly away home. Your house is on fire and your children will burn." she chanted, but the lady-bug refused to go even when she kindly nrszed it with a few gentle punches with a stick. There it was again. not ey--n n bug would move when she wanted it to, nothing would t-ver ligippen the way she wanted it.

Truly, she Was not like other girls." Then mother would issue invitations to her dearest friends to come at a certain time, to see how sweet she lo-oked after she was laid out, and they would come in, bearing ga.rlands of flowers and intwine about her bier, all the time singing sweet sad songs to the low tones of the pipe- organ. She didn't exactly know h-ow the pipe-organ would get into her house, but of cofunsse it would be thereg and then they would all kneel be-sfid-e her and pray that they might be as good as she. And then the funeral, that would be sucrh a grand affair. Slhe would get to wear a white silk dress -then, all right, and oh joy, maybe white slip- pers like cousin Louise had when she was married, white satin ones, with pearl beads on, 'only she did 'hope she wouldn't have to limp the way Louise did, but then of course, she had forgotten she' would not have to walk in hers, and how lucky, her dress was short and everybody would see them. And perhaps she would hold a shower boquet of white roses- or no, she believed she would rather have- a shepardess' crook like the white ones caried by the bridesmaids. First in the procession would be the band, playing a low funeral dirge, and after that would come the hearse that would take her to her final rest- ing place. On each side of it would be honorary pall-bearersg her six most' intimate girl friends. They would all be dressed in a different color, their dresses made s-omething like those that the girls wore in a show her father took her to once-dresses that had just yards and yards of ruffles on and when the girls danced they looked just like tops- whirling around. They' wo-uld e-ach carry a bunch of flowers to match the dress and of course the hats' must be the same also. Behind would come the really pall-bearers and they would be her six especially boy friends. She did hope she wouldn't be heavy for if there is anything that is just horrid, it is when a boy's- face gets all red and hot and it would take away so much o-f the sollemnity ofthe occ-asio-n if they were not pale, toog she could see the looks of anguish upon their faces now as she thought of how each one would be saying to him- self, "She was my sweetheart, and when I grew up she would have been my wifeg oh, how can I give her up, my little playmate, my little girl." of course, as yet, none of them had ever said such things out loud to her, but of course, they thought them. It would be nice too, when they got to the grave, which was to be a flowery bank, to have the guns fired off like they did when Colonel Hamilton died, only that might not be quite proper for a girl, she guessed it was only old men after all haduthat. By this time bitter tears were roling down Lois' face and she was just feeling herself being lowered to her grave, when she heard a voice from the house saying, "Lois, Lois, where are you? Supper is ready, we are going to have hot biscuits and maple syrup." -Georgia Donaldson. 90 "1-115 NAME WAS JONES There was a dumpy teacher-man With nervousness a-shakin'g He Went to Van Deventer's place To have his picture taken.

XM f it THE COIVI-FIN CLUB The C20-in-Fin Club was originated spontaneiouisly in the minds of a doz- SX' T-QPVN- en or more luminaries wlhos-e effulgence illuminated the first Freshman clasis- in the .School of Commerce and Fninance of the James Millikin Uni- versity. This spontaneity of thought became known to others at a meeting of an informal nature February 10th, 1905. This mutual admiration thus engendered, led to a formal organization on February 24. 1905. Therf-after weekly meetings were held during the winter months of the year 1903. Imr- ing the year 1905-'06, semi-monthly meetings were held. At the first meeting one of the members brought a large and de- cidedly obstreperous Billy-goat, which was at once pressed into st-wit--'. in the initiation of a couple of candidates who were seeking the fins of the Com-Fins. You can hardly comprehend the adaptability of the Com-l-'in ltilly- goialt for the position of a swimming master. Nevertheless, nn-niln-rs of the club can certify to the ability of the goat to put the candidate in proper position for swimming, and by an involuntary pi-or-ess start the growth of fins by which one Com-Fin may know another. Some of the most pleasing times still embedded in the minds of the members were the open meetings. The first affair of this nature was held at the home of Professor Stevenson, the father of the t-lub. The members appeared as in the picture above, in conipany with some of the fair young ladies of the Millikin. Several like int-etings hav- I it-.- n li-il-l. each proving a great success.

These have gradually been devel- oped in accordance with the latest and most approved methods of art education, until we now include under the Fine Arts, drawing, perspective, pencil and charcoal, pe-n and ink, water-color and oil from still life and life, composition, landscape painting, and clay modelling with casting. There is also a course in Art History given in lectures illustrated by lantern slides. Under Applied Arts we have a course of study in the principles of design and color harmony, pottery, basketry, bent iron, leather work, metal work in copper, silver and so forth, with enamelling and stone set- ting, all from original designs. There is also a course in dress designing for Domestic Art pupils. This year a special course in China painting, in which original design is encouraged, was introduced with marked success. The Mechanical Drawing which is adapted to the needs of the students in. the Eangfineering Depart-ment, includes projection, machine d.rawing, and cast shadows. We have tried to overcome the popular idea that the study of art is a mere pastime, with what success may be judged from the fact that, in our University, some courses in art may now be substituted for certain branches in Mathematics, and the council is fully persuaded that nothing is lost in the substitution. The work becomes more and more interesting each year, and our enrollment steadily increases. We foreseen prosperous future for the Art Department. , -E. L.

THE SCHOOL OF MUSIC HE James Millikin University School of Mu- sic has for its object the diffusion of a high music-all 'e-ducatio-n. Tlhe in-stitu-tion e-n- deavoris to attain this end by a well-regulated e and scientific plan of instruction, imparted not only to those who wish to devo-te themselves to music as artists and 'teache-rs, but also to amateurs wh-ose only object is to acquire a correct knowledge of music. In the teaching of music, thoroughness is too often lamentably absent. Most students of the various branches of m-usic study, especially pianro, voice -and violin, are unwilllling to undergo the necessary and of neces-ity somewhat dry system of instruction that some schools enforce' on them. To most pupils, in such a case, proficiency seems to come with slow and leaden feet, and in this delufsion too often receive the corroborative- opinion of their unknowing friends and relatives. This fact is taken advantage of in the case of many instructors, who give their only too willing pupils a fictitiiou-s accomplishment by liiter-ally drumming int-o them catchy and showy pieces that ne-ither educate the taste for the higher in this art nor lead to technical proficiency. . It has always been the aim of the directors of The James MillikinUni- versity School of Music to make the path to self-reliant, thorough musical proficiency more entertaining without in the least abating the necessary means to that end. The methods of instruction employed are the very best and are approved by the most celebrated professors of musical peda- gogy in the world, and are likewise employed by the great schools in Europe and America. T'he advantages of instruction here are many. T'he pro-per conditiions and appliances, with which to develop the talents of pupils, are at hand, and pupils have the advantages of the recitals and concerts, the study of sight-reading, fundamental harmony, history of music, and ensemble playing, which are so very necessary to a complete musi- cal training, without additional cost. Our school has been unusually sucessful. The number of pupils has been steadily increasing since the opening in September, nineteen hundred three. To accomodate the many pupils, our faculty has been enlarged and now we have a large school of enthusiastic pupils from many parts of the country as the result of our efforts. Our faculty is selliected from among the best professors of Boston, Cincinnati, Chicago, and Berlin and 110 We believe cannot be surpassed tin America. The prices charged fer mi- tion are much lower than are asked for teaching of the same high stand- ard in the large cities. Our success has not only been great in the numbers of pupils but also in th-e improvement and fine ability shown by our pupils as evidenced by the many isitudents' recitals We have given. Results are the best tests of any plan, and we can proudly prove our claims for the supeniority of the instruction given in the present as in the past by the Work dione by our pupils. Diplomas are conferred upon students in the collegiate department Who have been in the school at least one year, and who have completed 'the required -course in any department of the school. Certificates are issued to pupils in the collegiate department wlm have completed specified' work. Detailed requirements for examination of candidates for diplomas. or certirficates-, Will be provided by tthe director upon application. Sftuden-ts may receive a credenltial, stating attendance and chrirac-ter o-f work done, upon completing not less than one year's work of one full branch. It its irnpo-ssi-ble to estimate the time it will take a student to coin- plete the clourise of instruction. Some take five years to accomplish wliat others- do in three. So much depends on the talent and the amount of time devot-edt to intellige-nit and conscientious practice. The School of Music of The James Millikin University offers :in +tIr-inf-n- tary department in piano study for beginners and pupils in the 4-.irly grades, giving the 'best possible instruction from the very beginning of study. To obviate the necessity of correcting faults which ton often-n girl- form- ed by students incorrectly instructed, a correct, scientific training is of the greatest importance, especially to children. This fact is nearly xelxvayis overlooked, and the result is that beginners are too often entrusted to the teaching care of faulty instructors. lil FREDERICK H.

LANPHERE PICTURE ONE. Our' last Morning at Sea. A sun-rise on a clear morning at sea, is one of the most impressive, and one of the mos-t beautiful sights that ever greeted human vision, and not least among the pleasures of our voyage are the several splendid- sun- rises which we have seen. In the early morning light, the sea-surface which by day shows so many variants of green, is very dark-nearly black, as though the darkness of night instead of lifti-ng from over the waters was settling beneath them. The horizon line is scarcely distinguishable, save in the east where down against the darkly wrinkled sea the sky shows a faint trace of gray, which as We watch it, changes slowly to a hue of golden yellow, and the water against it, gradually loses its sombre inky hue, this magic-like trans- formation goes on-the sky deepening in color from yellow to red, until we catch the first rays o-f the sun as they shoot across the waters, cresting its millions of waves with go-l-d. When we came on deck early on the morning of our last day at sea. a scene of extraordinary :interest awaited us. Away to our left, with the inland mountains rising be-hind them in the distance, were the craggy shores of Scotland. To our right, so near that we could see 'the cottages on the shore, was' the coast of Ireland. It was just before sun-rise and there were only two other persons on d-eckg both were men with wrhom I had, during the past few days, become well acquainted, and knowing the circumstances under which each was making the voyage, I was not surprised to find them there. One stood with his face towardi the "Land of the Heather." The other was looking toward the "Isle of the Shamrock." Eiach was looking upon the land of his birth, one after forty, the other after fifty years exile. I should have liked to read the thoughts of those sober faced men. as they stood there, ,looking upon the old home shores which they had left in the far-away morning of their lives. We were passing an Irish coast-village, from which the sound of a, fisherman's horn came clearly out to us across the waters. suggesting' the opening lines of the old Irish song-- "Kathleen Mavourneen the gray dawn is breaking, The song of the hunter is heard on the hill." As these and the ensuing sweet. sad words--M "It may be for years, and it may he for ever." came to mind, I thought of the ennx'ersations l iisml in enjoy in nay boyhood, with the old Irish people in my native villaigv. 1211 I remembered how their hearts would grow warm, and how their eyes would often become dim with tears, as they told me of Ireland which the-y, in far exile, never ceased to love, and to whose green shores, now before me, their thoughts so often turned, with the never-to-be satisfied longing, to look upon them once more. I thought of Ireland in her days of past glory: of her romance, her op- prews-sion and sorrows-all familiar to me through the pages of history, but never so deeply im-pressed as when I looked upon her sloping, wave-lap- pe-d shores. -l We we-re further from the Scotch coast, and her shores were less dis- tinct than those of .Irelan-dg yet in the dfistance they were very impressive against their dark mountain background. Rich indeed were the historic, romantic and literary asociations that our passing view of Scotland recalled: the country for which Bruce had bled, the land whose folk-lore had inspired to action the wizard pen of Scott, and the rustic beauty of Which the whole world has read in the immortal verse of Burns, the home-land. of Highland Mary, and sweet Annie Lawrie, whose names are sung in every clime. PICTURE TWO. Our First Evening in England. Our first night in England was spent in the quiet old city of Chester. It was evening when we arrived, and we went at once to a small inn which had been recommended to uls by a fellow-traveller. The inn was exactly what we had wishefdg small, quiet and more like a private home than like a hostelry. After inspecting the room assigned us, with its anc-ient high-post beds, open fire-place and glittering candle sticks, we went down -to the inn parlor to wait for supper. The parlor was a large, comfortable room, with dark, heavy furnish- ings. The evening was damp, and there was a glowing fire in the fire-place, which gave both warmth and light to the room. Before this o-pefn fire we sat, an-d enjoyed such an hour, and such a scene as Dfick- ens has so often described. Our ta'ble was spread near the fire, and a savory smell crept in, very welcomly from the adjoining room. Tlhe uncertain light of the fire only half revealed the various features of the room, leaving wide 'scope for speculation and stimulating the im- agination into fullest play. The absolute silence of the place was broken. only by the crackling of the fire, the singing of the- tea-kettle on the hearth and the slow ticking of the great black clock-three of the least disturbing, and m-ost compan- ionable soun-ds in the world, blended into a delightful domestic symphony. Tshe little white-aproned waiting maid soon tripped in on tfiptoe, as though reluctant to disturb our meditations-arranged our meal, and qui- etly withdrew. We had refused her offer of candles, and in the fire-light we- sat down to our first supper in old England. VVe were apparently the only guests, and had the parlor to ourselves. 130 After tea we again resumed our places before the fire, in the now flickering light of which the room and its quaint furnishings, looked like a phantom picture, in which the different objects seemed fantastic, and illusionary rather than real. There was a small piano of antique design, Which, als I ran m-y fingers over its keys, responded in tones of thin and pl-aintive quality, bespeiaking great age and much use, reminding me of the piping voice which I have heard- from some old person who had reached that sad stage of life known as second childhood. There was something very pathetic in the feeble tones of this old instrument, from Which, like the "Harp in Tara's Hall" the soul of music had fled, that reminded me of the dead fingers that had once pressed those worn keys, and of the now silent voices which had blended with its :tones during its years of beauty .l-ong ago. Over the old fire-'place hung a battered Warrior's shield of ancient mould, and cros-sed 'beneath it were two heavy, tarnished swords. XYhat part these old relics of War, had played in national or individual history. in the middle ages to which they belonged, We could only conjecture: the dients and nicks that scared them seemed to indicate that they had not always hung so passively on the wall. In its corner, be-hiin-d us, the "grandfather's clock" slowly ticked its- "never, forever, forever, never," in precisely the same voice with which it might have been speaking for three hundred years. So antique was the room and all of its visible furnishings, that I fancied that if a guest of a hundred years ago, were to come to life and find himself before the fire, he would see nothing strange or new about him-that he might spend his evening there, take his Candle and go to his bed without having seen any evidence of a hundred years of progress, or discovering that the old tall clock had ticked off a century during his absence. -Charles N.

GXC0 THE INTER-SOCIETY CONTEST The first annual contest betwteetn the Orlandian and Philomathean Literary Societies 'took place March 30, in the Assembly hall. It was the occasion of one of the greatest displays of college spirit the University has ev-er seen. T'he excitement began to be evidenced early in the week and gathered new force every day until it was without bounds on the event- ful evening. During the Week both societies held mass meetings, day and night, at which pennants and other decotrationtsi were made. and songs and yells written. On the afternoon of the 30th. the Philos scented mis- chief, and tracked it to the room above the Assembly hall. They knew that an Orlandian had locked himsteilf in there for some purpose and so they propped' and nailed the door shut. He remaline-d thus until dangerous- ly near the hour for the contest. and then the janitor took the hinges off the door and freed the victim. At the appointed hour the two societies turned out in full force. The Philomatheans occupied the east side of the auditorium and the tirlan- diains the west. both sideis having elaborately decorated the seetions re- served for them, with thelir colors. The societies siniply took possesion ot' things, first one and then the other singing or yelling. answering song with song and yell with yell. the audit.-nee looked on with evident enjoy- ment and wonder as to what would eoine next. The enthnsinsni knew no bounds, increasing with each new nunther on the progrnni until right in the midst of this excitement. the seerel whieh the Philos had heen pre- 151 vented from exposing by an over-watchful janitor, leaked out. T'he ceil- ing opened and a stream of yellow confetti came- down and a big Orlan- dian pennant unrolled and hung suspended from the middle of the ceiling. During the crucial moment when the judges were comparing notes, the Philos gave a rousing yell for Linn 81 Scruggs. The prize for the contest was a. handsome art piece offered by Linn Sz Scruggs Company for the hall of the socli-elty winning the greater num- ber of points in recitation, original story, oration, and debate, the subjects counting one, two, three, and five points respectively. The program and contestants were- as follows: ' Voice- "An Irish Love Song" Lang "Mattinata" I Tosti Mr, Arthur VanCleve Recitation-"The Sign of the Cross" Wil-sloii Barrett Miss Belle Uhler, Plhilomathean "Marse chan, or ia Tale of o-id virginia" . ,- ,V Thos.

The earlier part of our brief history, while fre- quentlry marked by the disappointments of defeat, was always, as it its: at present, characterized by a. determination to learn from each contest, and having learned, to win greater success in the next. It is this spirit which has raised the Association from a position where she had to beg for games with ot-her institutions, to her present position where the U. of I. feels it advisable to put her best team in the field to defeat her and then only wins baseball 4-1. CApril 7.3 ' The first step in the hristory of Athletics at AMillikin University took place the second day after the opening of the first year, when at bl-ack haired, broad shouldered, lean individual marche-d into the Chemical Lec- ture room. Seating himself upon the writing tablet of a chair, he bemoaned the lack of "College Spirit" which up to that time had been marked by a corresponding lack of athletic interest. When he left, after a short con- versation, the instructor wondered what degree of enthusiasm he had finally come across-. This young man's efforts, with those of a few others who also become prominent in this direction, soon resulted in the forma- tion of the Athletic Afssociation, and also a call for candidates forithe football team. Among the more prominent names of the first year ar-e those of Auer, Crea, File, Grubel, Keeton, King. Lehman, Masterson, McCullom, McDavi-di, Moore, Morrow, Moses, Powers and Sprague. After a few evenings of practice Masterson was elected captain by the football squad and the Association chose McCullom manager and Dr. Meserve as coach. Dr. Meserve- really occupied the p0SitiOn Of head CORCTI and directed his efforts mainly toward keeping the team together and full of enthusiasm and helpting a little with the coaching, while the- active coaching was carried out by Dr. Rogers at first, and later by Mr. Keeton and Captain Masterson. The writer feels that the success of the first football season, and it was a success, was due to the coaching of Mr. Keeton and the enthusiasm and loyalty of the squad. Those who were not active in the affairs of the Association can hardly realize the difficulties and discouragements of tha-t first season. With no Alumni, no traditions, no school spirit, only a small per cent of stu- dents above the Freshman class, and no reputation to draw other teams here, or to draw support from the town's people, it was surely an uphill fight. Amid such discouragements all the more credit is due the team for h-olding together and continually putting up a better and better game. Elarly in the winter the present constitution was adopted, in which the Association sanctioned the following sportsg football, baseball, track, tennis, and men's and women's basket ball. Managers for the same were chosen as follows: 156 Football, Dow McCul1om. Baseball, Horace McDavid. Track, Chas. Re-cord. Basketball, Et. L. Auer. The section managers together with the Association officers. Presi- dent File, Vice President Stevenson, Secretary Miss Young, Treasurer Dyer a.nd President Taylor, Dr. Meserve, Professor Bailey, Professor Mills. and Profe-s-sfor Varnum, formed the first Board of Directors. During the first Winter Professor Bailey had a class in the. gymnasium and coached the -basketball team. The basketball practice was carried on in what is now the pattern shop. With such a poor place it was impos- s-ible to 'develop the 'team to the extent which one would have expected from the material which offered itself, but in spite of that, the team played sev- eral very crediitable games. Captain Lehman organized and trained our first track team. In this he was assisted, late in the spring, by Mr. Winterbottom who was engaged by the University and the Athletic Association as instruc- tor in gymnastics, and athletic coach. Mr. Wiiiterbottom organ- ized the first baseball team. of which MCD-avid was manager and Moses was captian. The team was severely handicapped by lack of grounds, as the Association grounds were not ready in time. Some of the practice was on Dunham's field. opposite the University where the football practice had been held. some at Fairview park and some at League park. All the home games 'were played at League park. The T records of the season are to lw found at the end of this article. Don R. Lehman.Ca'ptain ,mv ,05, ,ow During our first summer vaca- tion Athletics took a decided step forward when Mr. J. N. Ashmore was engaged as gymnasium director and athletic coach. Mr. Ashmore was at that time coach at the Vnivcrsity of Washingtoii tStateJ. He was a former U. of I. man. and had earned an enviable reputation under Coach Huff. XX'ith the teams of the next two years Mr. Ashmore has only added to his former reputation. hoth as a man and as an athlete. 157 years has been one of KETBALL P9io N Q' ' 09" 0 O Ley. 513222 Q Sc 4 L ww? il: 0 With an expert controlling athletics, We could not fail to have successful teams and our history of the next two 4 ll. marked progress. It is so fresh in the minds of all of us that a detailed resume is unnecessary. VVe have had a a football team and a baseball team each season, and our field and track teams have had several unimportant con- tests in which they were uniformly successful. The first indoor affair was the dual meet with the local Y. M. C. A. in which we badly defeated theml twice, for which we re- ceived a beautiful banner. The first college meet was with Wesleyan University of Bloomington on May 5th, 1906, in which We easily defeated them, making 83 points out of a possible 117. The teams have all been fairly well supported by tho students, but not as well as they will b-e as We develop traditions and school loyalty, and increase our proportion of upper classmen. An interesting fact concerning the past has been the enthusiasm of the young l-adlies, which has equalled, and even excelled that of the young men. Among -vfiliffif W b fl On second thought I,would not run the risk tha from "naming names." the more prominent that should be mentioned are-l-. t comes The Association has a field leveled and tiled, and sup- plied with bleachers for footbal fieldis a cinder and dirt track of four and I and baseball. Around the one-half laps to the mile. It also has three tennis courts. which are persistently occupied during the tennis season. 158 SUMMARY. 1903-4. Prefs.. Forrest File V. Pres., YVIT1.

In presenting this annual, which is supposed to give an adequate idea of our fair school, to the public we must not forget our Agricultural De- partment. It was the last department started and as yet is not very large, but it is directed by two of the most energetic men on the Faculty, and we feel sure of its success and are confident it will grow and become T'I-IE department of the school. The board of directors, fearing we were not yet able to support a complete course in Agriculture, decided to take up only one branch and then add others to it if there was a demand and if the first proved a success. After much discussion and debate pro and con, they hit upon the novel plan of starting a goat farm. This is something new in University lines, but we believe it will shortly be a great course. Of course the next step for the Board to take was to select the overseer. They were not long in hitting upon the right men, namely, Drs, Meserve and Shaw. Both of these gentlemen have been on our Faculty before as substitute chemical teacher and substitute mathematics teacher respectively. They were fairly suc- cessful in these lines of work but goatology seemed to be their specialty and their work in that branch since appointment has proven it. They still continue with a portion of their work in the two former branches, but at present most of their time is taken up in the goat and kid business. They stocked their department with the best goats on the market. Goats from all points of the compass came trooping into Decatur to get a place in the department but many were rejected. If a Billy or a Nan could show up a good pedigree it was at once as- signed a stall and given a box from which to eat. A fine collection was gathered together and the work started off with fine prospects for future prominence. Many different breeds are represented. many novelties also. The numerous stalls are furnished with a shelf for the goats to get up on while they are being milked. It is said that they actually have one Nannie that gives milk on both sides. That alone is enough to establish the reputation of the school. We cannot take the time and space here- in describing this as it should be described, but we make no hesitancy in in- viting the attention of all energetic young people. seeking an education, to this department of our University. For full particulars send a postal card requesting a special catalog of this department, directed to the Shaw-Me- serve College of Goatology, of The James Millikin University. 172 lf. ,- .
