While preparing this, the third volume of the Millidek, which We now hand to you, the sole aim of the Editors has been to give a true enlightened account of all phases of student life during the past year at the University. We pray you take the endeavor kindly, it is wholly our best. Bintnrg nf the limit 'dear Conn-01,-.-Cjllgmgt-s of some importance have occurred during' the year in the eonlroll-ing' bodies of the institution. The death of Supl. IC. A. Gastman removed the President of the l.oeal Board of Managers. Dr. S. li. McClelland of Decatur was elected a Manager, and later 'to the Presi- dency of the Itoard. Mr. Smith Vtfalker, who has served the Board as its Secretary since its organization, resigned, and Dr. J. C. Fisher of Decatur was chotsen to the position. ln 'the General Board of Trustees of the University, Dr. NVm. bl. Darby of Evansville, Ind., resigned from the Pres- idency and Dr. W. l'l. Pennhailegon of Decatur was elected to fill the vacancy. Administration.-In the local adminiistration a Dean of women has been appointed. This is a much needed oflieer who has charge of the management rand discipline in the new Hall for Women, and general supervision of the women students of the Decatur College and Industrial fa-W' School. M rs. Lucy M. Valentine was chosen to this oflicc. Regulations.-No revolutionary action has been taken by the Council this year. Perhaps the most important piece ott' legislation relates to athletics. The number of inteir-collegiate contests has been limited: Football to eight games, baseball to ten ganies, and basketball to ten games. The Council is proposing to regulate more care- fully the athletics of the institution by insisting on the scholarship of candidates for the teams. Q lt has also been voted not to allow students to become members of social organizations in the city which have not been approved by the Council. Equipment.-The usual adclitions have been matclc to the Equipment. Chief among the gifts to the Museum is a donation, by Dr. Wilt. Barnes of Decatur, of a collection of llllinois buttteirflies,-duplicates from his large collection.

Wallace, Mt, Zion, lllinois, who died at his farm home, November, 23, 1907, made provision in his will for the payment of the sum of ten thousand dollars out of his estate on iinal settlement, to the Decatur College and In- dustrial School. Mr. Wztllznce was born at Mt. Zion in 1848 and lived there all his life. lle was never married. He was a successful farmer and a much-respected neigh- bor. He 'was greatly interested in public al'f'airs and held positive views on many social questions. Long ago he planned to do something to help the young men to secure an education and this generous provision is an expression of his kindly interest in them. He also provided that the residue of his estate, estimated at about ten thousand dol- lars, should be equally divided between the Anna B. Mil- likin Home and St. Mary's I-lospital. Mr. A. R. Scott of Bethany, llllinois, has from the Iirst been a 'warm friend of the University. He originlaly sub- scribed live thousand dollairs to the general fund from the Cumtberland Presbyterian Church and has been a mem- ber of the College Commission for several years, part ot' the time as its presi'den't. He was born at Mt. Zion, June 27, 18455 was educated at the Mt. Zion Academy, was married to Mary ,lane Smith, September 3, 1868, was en- gaged in general merchandising at Bethany 1868 to 1878, in milling and grain in 1878, adding banking 1887 and be- coming president of the Scott State Bank in 1904. He is a member .of 'l1ll'C, Cumberlaml Prefsbyterian Church and has always given liberally to its various enterprises, as well as to every other worthy cause. Wesley B. Harvey of VVashington, Illinois, was born in Newark, Ohio, December 15, 1824, and went to his re- ward liebrnary 20, 1908. l-lis iarents settled on a farm in l Tazewell county in 1828. .ln 1858 he became a resident of Washington, where he resided duringzthe rest of his liI'e. lle was a successful business man and was often honored by his fellow citizens in a variety of ways. lle was justice of the peace for twenty years, mayor of Wash- nigton two terms, county supervisor ten years, and a mem- ber of the state legislature one term. ln his early years he was a member of the Cumberland .Presbyterian Church, though Iinding no organization of that body in VVashin'gton on settling there, he soon iden- titied himself with the M. li. Church, of iwhich he has been a devoted member. lle was 'chairman of the Board of Trustees for forty-seven years. Mr. Harvey was a liberal giver all his life. Wlien a member of the lloard of Trustees of the illinois Wesleyztii University, he gave 320,000 to its support. ln kindly re- membrance of his early 'associations in the Cumberland l7res'byterian Church, as he 'wrote 'President Taylor, he made the 'Decatur College and lndustrial School heir to eight shares of his large estate. A conservative estimate assures the institution from ten to twelve thousand dol- lars. lllr. Harvey was twice married, 'the last time in 1892 to Mrs. Nancy Forbes Shephard. who survives him. His home life was ideal, his death a triumphant example of a faith that knows no wavering. Uh: Millihrk 1 HU H 1 1 l. 'l'. lllllll'I'lH S. IC. AIl'l'll'Il6lllll fl'l'l'H.D A. ll.

Gastman, schoolmaster, citizen and friend, President of the State Board of Education, Superintendent of the Decatur City Schools and President of the Board of Managers of the Decatur College and Industrial School of The James Millikin University, died in Boston, Massa- chusetts, on the morning of August 3, 1907. ln the loss of our beloved leader, whose fellowship and counsel we have so long enjoyed in private and ollicial life, we, his associates on the Board of Managers, desire to expresslour warm appreciation of his eminent services to -the general cause of education in this country, to the schools of Decatur and Macon County, to which he has devoted almost half a century o'f a busy and self-sacrificing life, but more particularly to The James Millikin Univer- sity, in whose development he took kindly interest from the beginning. His long experience in educational affairs and his thorough -acquaintance with modern educational problems, together with his quick discernment and his systematic business methods, made him at once an invaluable mem- ber of the 'Board of Managers on his appointment in June, 1904. As the executive otlicer of the Board since july, 1905, he has discharged the responsibilities of his office with 'the highest satisfaction to us, to the faculty and to the friends of the institution in general. Few men in pub- lic life have so long, so fully and so deservedly enjoyed the confidence and affection of all classes of people. 1-le was a man of such genial nature, such lofty charac- ter, such disinteresteid motives, such courageous convic- tions, such devotion to dulty, such genuine worth, such tender sympathy, such delicaicy of sentiment, that appar- ently without effort he was ever exercising a wholesome and widespread influence for larger and better things. l-n kindly and affectionate remembraince, we instruct our Secretary to spread -this expression of our regard for our deceased brother upon our minutes and to transmit a copy of the same to the bereaveid family, to whom we ten- der our heartfelt sympathy in the far keener loss that has come to them, It is our hope that they may find com- fort in the assurance that h-e but enters upon a higher state of activity for which he so assiduously prepared himself whi-le here.

'It is a handsome steel struc- ture, and on this account is of general interest' to the stu- dtents. lt has become a favorite place for stutclents hav- ing a few spare minutes to wal'k to, in order to see the river and observe i'ts beau-ties. ln the spring-time many favorites take strolls to this bridge and back for exercise. Steven's Creek is another fa-mous resort, but is not reached quite so easily as the Sa-ngamon River. lt tlows about two miles 'west of the University and is easily reached by Inter-urban. lt is a beautiful stream, the toliage in the summer-time being of the most gorgeous kind. Students delight in taking -advantage of the oppor- tunities afforded by its nearness to the city. The large stone shown in the picture is located a few miles west of the city, and marks a spot which the people of Ill-inois will ever ho-ld dear to their hearts. Abraham Lincfoln in the early days of his life walked down the very street upon which the University is located. This little remembrance is not the only 'thing which keeps our minds centered upon this great character, but- we may view every day in Fairview Park, two blocks from the University, the court house in which Lincoln is said to have tried and argued cases. VVl1at is considered an engineering feat of local inter est is also shown,-the new double-tracked concrete bridge across the Sangamon River on the main line of the Wa- bash to Chicago. It is a gigantic structure and rr.-pre- sents the very latest type of engineering, skill. Uhr illllillihek 1 9 U H Uhr Millihek 1 5 ll H uf- I Zfiiheral Arm Albert R. Taylor, President.

I Srltnnl nf iliihvral Arm IME works strange changes. An illustration of this time-honored truth may be found in the -changed attitude of the general public 'towardd the literary courses which consti- tute the backbone and vitals, as it were, ol' the liberal arts course. A good many years ago a distin- guished man thus characterized this Pflfl of thc IWW eourse: "'.I.'hese studies mould our yonlll. flvlisltt Ultl 1120'- set oil' prosperity, afford a refuge antd solace in adversity. pleasure at home, help us through the 'wakeful nights, at- tend tie on our journeys to foreign slrores. and fail us not in country retreats." ln this characterization there was no intention on the part of the writer to classify such studies -as "aecomplishments" rather 'than "practical," for in his tirnc mon .Of affairs were educated only in literattu'e, and the eminently practical value never doubted nor called into que wholly materialistic and above all herent. and but little acquired taste aesthetics, it was thought desirable away in a measure from the sordid of such studies was stion. But in an age practical. with no in- for music and art and to direct men's minds views of these studies to -their liner and more spiritual aspect. Curliously enough this chance utterance,-so great has been the in- lluence of this man upon modern thought,-has obscured the old notion th-att literary studies were primarily practi- cal aud incidentally aecomplislnnents. and promoted the belief that they are cultural rather than practical. The man of today is 'arrayed against the man 'ot' yesterday. Who is right is fortunately not a matter ot' opinion but a matter ol' fact, A survey ot' the broad tield ot' national life both at home and abrotad shows the graduates ot' the' lib- eral arts courses tak-e the lead and outclass all compet- itors, and demonstrates the fact that the literary courses above all others are entitled to the appellation ol' "practi- cal." Nor is this surprising when one considers the op- lmlilllllllcs Oben to the student of literature. He is pre- pared for any or all of tive great professions.-teaehing, politics, journalism, the ministry and literature. 'l'he prospective lawyer can protitably take only this eourse. 'Recently technical concerns. such as telephone and elec- trical companies, have sought the liberal arts graduates for the conduct of general business wherein lies the best opportunity for advancement. And so this course is more and more demonstrating its right to be called the "prac- tical course." Uhr illllillihrk 1 HUB Uhr ilmillihrk IHUB Thomas W. Galloway, Secretary of the Fac- ulty.

I The library of this institution is no exception to that of other similar institutions. lt is here where friend meets frientd and the transgressor meets the transgres-sed on common ground. The library was opened at the same time as the college in September, 1903, 'with a collection of books and periodicals specially selected for each de- partment from the latest stand-ard authorities o-n each sub- ject to be included in the college curriculum. To these have been added from year to year valuable works on more recent developments of these subjects, the whole now form- ing a splendid w-0-rking library for the college in general. The growth has been steady. from about 2500 volumes the first year to some 5000-6000 volumes at the present time. This includes -some government reports in special lines. The students have shown their appreciation of t'he value of the library by the way in which they spend their odd minutes and 'hiours 'within its walls. Their attitude toward the contents of the library has ever been one of respect and ccmsideration. The present year has 'been the most successful of any thus far. Organization seems to be t'he key-word of the year and the closer and more perfect organization of the co-llege has had a noticeable influence upon the library. This effect is most gratifying to us all and has been taken in the light of a prophecy for the future. one mamma 1 una Ullyr Hllillihrk 151113 Enginnring Cornell University, M. IE., 1887.

Smith, Mechanical Engineering.- Sfrhnnl nf iinginnring server of educational progres sees today, is that of specialization. The time is fast ap- proaching when it will be recognized that merely a general education, whether on classical or sci-entific lines, is not alone a suitable prepara- tion for life. Not that culture is less desirable than for- merly, rather it is more desirable, but above this general substructure must be placed a technical education which will give that special application to some calling which the HE most significant tendency, which an ob- age demands. With these ideas in view, this department aims to give instruction in Civil, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering to those who wish to enter this great field through one of these channels. The.technical college, in which the future engineer is to be trained, has several important characteristics to main- tain, First: to educate scientifically and technically those who shall lead the march of the coming civilization in in- dustrial lines. Second: to give the student a true sense of the valtue of applying scientific principles to industria'l processes. Third: to add to this training such instruction as will enalble the student to put his cultivated powers to some useful service, a special skill and dexterity that will enable him to express himself through his work. It is this intensity of application, this concentration of purpose and directncss of aim that accomplishes the work of the world. It is with these general ideas that the courses in this department have been planned. The firstitwo years of all the courses are very similar and are intended to give the student a thorou'gh training in those subjects which are essential as a foundation upon which he can build his spe- cial professional education. During the last t-wo years, the Civil Engineer studies the principles and applications to sanitation, water supply, railroad location and designs of buildings, bridges and tun- nels, the Mechanical Engineer investigates the principles of thermodynarmics and kinematics and their application to the design of heat engines, transmission of power and machine design, the Electrical Engineer applies himself to the principles and problem-s connected 'with the produc- tion and transmission of electri-cal power, electric lighting and the design and operation of machines an'd systems in which the electric current enters in some of its many and varied applications. The general principles involved in all of these branches of engineering, as mechanics of rigid and moving bio-dies, hydraulicsg and, in addition, specifications, contracts, and philosophy are taken in commong and in all courses a lim- ited amount o-f time is allowed in which the student may elect subjects given in other deparvtments of the Univer- sity. The results of this plan have been gratifying, for thc graduates of this department have all found positions in the engineering field and are filling their places with credit to themselves and honor to their alma mater.

From the time of primitive peoples to modern 'civiliza- tion household activities have ever been important factors in racial development. But Domestic Economy as a science to be studied and investigated is compairatively new, even yet having to justify itself as a subject lit for the curricu- lum of schoo-ls and colleges. ln future times, it will doubt- less be a matter of wonderment tha-t subjects so important to mgmkind as the proper birth, growth, and development of human beings did not receive attention sooner. The uiuieriying thoughlt in all courses in Domestic Economy, Home Economics, Domestic Science and Art, or whatever name may be employed to express the same idea, is the betterment of home conditions. Tn the training for citizenship, in the upbuilding of character, the home is a fundamental factor. lt is the organic unit of society. lt is the place where the individual acquires the physical de- velopment and moral character that will make him an effi- cient worker instead of a drioine. To raise the standard of living and life in the home is to elevate the whole social system. Domestic Economy consists of various household EIC- tivities based on sciences, arts, and economies. It needs in sciences chemistry, physics, biology, physiology, 'and bacteriologyg in economics courses emphasizing consump- the study of the home as the organized social unit and the development of the familyg personal hygiene, for since vigorous health and its accompanying high spirits are larger elements in happiness than anything else, the teach- ing of how to maintain it is of utmost impor-tance, which should include foods and, also, the sanitary environments of shelter and proper clothingg public hygiene, for if our men and women were alive to the evils, bo-th physical and economic, resulting from bad sanitary surroundings, such as, unhygienic or unsafe buildings, inadequate water sup- ply, defective sewerage, and filthy streets, these things would soon cease to exist. 'Ph modern home-maker must understand not only the buying and preparatifo-n of food for her table, but also the food combinations which will produce the most efficient workers, 'not only the principles of sanitation in the ordering of 'her household, but business methods as well, both in the management of her income and dealing with her employees. All of these various requirements may be summarized into the following delinition-Domestic Economy is the artistic, scientific, hygienic, and economic ordering of household affairs. its aim, therefore, is not to train housekeepers and seamstresses, but to so improve these household activities by the study of the arts and sciences conneete-d therewith, that household conditions will be made better, tfhe individuals wi-thin the home made health- ier, happier, and more efiieientg and the state elevated. for its 'highest duty is to so legislate and 'administer its affairs that good homes are a possibility.

The students work directly from still life. flowers, or costumed model, in the various mediums, not with the idea of merely copying the subject before them, but rather of using it as reference material in creat- ing a picture, -with the aid of what has already been vis- ualized from previous pictures. This method, it 'will be seen, gives the student a wide range of available knowledge, to be used in the creation of a harmonious whole with the stalnp of the painter's in- dividuality. not a copy of a subject which may be inhar- monious and lacking in picture-making qualities. The Applied Arts work of the United States is drawing attention to that most important department of our na- tional artistic growth. There is possibly no greater satis- faction than that which comes in our Applied Arts course from watching the transformation ofthe crude sheets of silver, copper, or shapeless lump of clay, through its various changes until it Iinally comes forth the completed productg ax glowing vase with its rich and mellow glaze, a beaten copper bowl, the hammer marks showing its trans- formation, or the graceful lines of silver pin or pendant with the glittering accents of semi-precious stones. The commercial value of this line of work is shown by the steadily increasing orders for lamps, electroliers, and jewelry made by advanced students in the fully equipped studios. The normal class intended for the training ot' special teachers in Art, gives the student a valuable train- ing in teaching. One half of the year is given to teaching assigned lessons in the ward schools of the city. The growth of the School has been such, that at the end of the fifth year the number of students has doubled. With our increased number of studios, a faculty of spe- cialists secured from Chicago, Boston and Paris, and an increasing number of prospering graduates, we look for- ward to a still more successful year to come.

To fullill its high calling the university must give and give freely to its stu- dents, to the world of learning and of scholarshipg to the development of trade, commerce and industry, to the com- munity in which it has its home, and to the state and nation whose foster child it is." The James Millikin University has an equally broad con- ception of the function ofa modern university. The orig- inal list of proposed schools announced by the university authorities contained a School of Commerce and Finance. lt is thus seen that the demand of the business world for trained service was recognized at the beginning of the James Millikin University. The work of the School of Commerce and Finance, however, was not inaugurated until the beginning of the second year, although various preparatory courses were offered the first year. Prior to the beginning of the second year, a prparatory or high school course of four years, and a collegiate course of four years were submitted and accepted. These courses have met a strong demand. The purpose of this school is, primarily, the training of young men who desire to enter business careers, giving them studies having a distinct fbcaring upon business and business principles, and seeondarily, to give a sufficient number of courses selected from the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences to impart something of the value of the older schools in mental discipline and character building. The attendance of the School has sho-wn a very satis- factory increase each year. Commerce and Finance men are justly proud of the men who have graduated from the School, and of the graduating class of 1908. James D. Moses, '06, the lirst graduate, is successfully conducting a large lumber yard at Emporia, Kansas. Orris Bennett, '07, lilled a position in the Na- tional Bank of Decatur for six months or more, and then went to Wyoming, where he accepted a temporary position as principal of a high school at a splendid salary. J. Arthur Moore, '07, is advertising man for the Daily Review of Decatur. His employers speak highly of his eltieiency. Charles A. Post, '07, is travelling represen- tative of the Daily Capital of Des Moines, lowa. Four members of the first freshman class will complete their course of study of four years in length, in Inne,'1908. These young men have worked for a year on their theses, which contain over twenty thousand words, and indicate the future occupation of the author.

The faculty has grown to ten professors and twelve assistant teachers. The work of the school grows more gratifying from year to yearg not only in art-istic results, but also in the number of students enrolled. The recitals and concerts this YCPU' reflect great credit upon the members of the facultyg the pupils' recitals demonstrating the' ability of the faculty members as teachers, and the faculty concerts their ability ll, as artists. The highest ideals in musical art are kept constantly before the students and the utmost care is exercised in every branch. A most encouraging development is the greatly increased interest in the tlieoretiical branches of music Study and the consequent improvement in the gen- eral musicianship of the students. The School of Music consists of lilemcntary, Academic, Coll-elgiate departments and a speei-al Teachers Training Department. The Teachers Training Department in- cludes classes for training of piano teachers who desire special training in the teaching of music in the public schools. ' Many advantages are gained by students who study music in a college. Students are required to attend classes regularly. Teachers have no business matters to occupy their time, so that they are able to concentrate their full attention and entire elnergy upon the musical education of their pupils. ln a school of music properly conducted, pupils have every advantage which privaltc instruction -oifliers, 'with many a-dditional advantages. VVhe'n there are several hundred students intent upon the attainment of proficiency each in his particular branch, much inspiration is gained by the exchange o'f ideas and a wholesome.. musical atmosphere, most valuable to every student, is created. Some branches of study can only be taught satisfac- torily in a college and such branches as harmony, counter- point, composition, orchestration, history of music, and psychology in its relation to music, are essential for serious students of music. "The're's music in the sighing of a reedg The1'e's music in the gushing of a rillg There's music in all things, if men had ears: Their earth is but an echo of the spheres."

The lingering glory has departed from the hill, No more the clouds it tinges With fair-shadowed fringes, And cooling, fragrant, murmuring darkness spreads, and still Is man's discordant strife, And struggle ends, And daylight blends With cooling dusk, and life Is hushed, save for the frog's low whirr, And cricket's chirp, and grasses' stir, And lone night owl, far, far away, Sends forth his plaint at close of day. For day is done, . And, one by one, As trees and grasses nod to sleep, And drowsy starlets faintly peep, And I sit, and think, and think, Gazing deep into the darkness settling 'round me, hollow, vast, 53 Ulu illilillihzk IH U B Searching dimness 'round about me for dim phantoms of the Pastg Lingering e'er on memoi-y's brink With halting feet. ' Ah, how sweet To sit alone, and dream, at set of sun, When all the world is vague with coming night,- To hear old voices whisper, sweet and low, And see dear faces steal baick, one by one, And thrill anew to each long-past delight, When shadows flicker, and the lights are low, When memories, like voices, fill the gale, When quiet twilighvt peace and gladness brings, And songs, tho felt, unsung, and griefs that pale, And loves that flush, and hopes that lift on wings,- And on the silent hills Day's latest glory thrills In the West, As t-he Spirit off thc Evening softly o'er my mind is stealing, Soothing, healing, E'er repose, our spirits sealing.

To take pride in the history uf one's class is a pardonable thing when that class has he class of '08. Other classes may have to resort to dreams and visions when they speak of their respective greatnesses, but not we. Let the facts speak for themselves. Four years ago we entered the University, one hundred and five in number,-fat and lean, long and short, wise and without exception. We went through the regulation process of filling Otlt pro- grams and being hazed, but did not have much occasion ts color rushes had not achieved such a record as has t simple, rude and foolish, but sharks to show our prowess as "scrappel'S,"1 yet been introduced. We did hang up a sample of our red and black on top of the smokcstack for the CflillC2lIi0l1 and enlightenment of the University 111 801101711 21114 U10 Sophomores in particular b ut nothing serious happened.

Besides tlns, WC f01111d 111110 to make ourselv es known along more scholastic lines. E. Starr Cole carried off hrst prize in the Brown debate, and Bonnie Blackburn won the original story prize in the Inter-Society contest. Had we time, we might mention other triumphs in field and class room, but let your mem- ories sufhcc. ' v The beginning of our Junior year found us with sadly diminished ranks but with true class loyalty still flowing in our veins. We still retained and even advanced our prominent place in school affairs. Hiram Shumiway was elected president of the Central Illinois Debating League and also won the oration in the lnter-Society Contest, Starr Cole was a member of the debating team which met the team of the liflissouri Valley College. ln this year we also gave our first large social event, when we were hosts t-o the class of 1907 at the annual banquet. We were especially proud of this, as iwe established the prece- dent of having the Junior-Senior banquet in the corridors ofthe University. As a Senior Class, though we have but sixteen members, we have gracefully filled our position as leaders in the Scliool. Two members of the class, Mr. Cole and Mr VanClcve, were on the team which defeated Wesleyan in debate, and Mr. Cole and Mr. Shumway took part in the lnter-Society Contest. The Senior play and reception 1110 C?11'1YP111'f0fll1C year was a most amusing and enjoyable 11521113 and the Senior trolley-ride and bonfire will never be forgotten by some of us, at least. As we look back ' s the year seems crowded with events, and yet it seems Uhr Millihvk IHUB Ula' Millihrk IH II B short, also. We have done, as always during our stay at Millikin, our best for our college and for our class. We have been prominent in athletic gatherings-on the side- lines and in the bleachers as well as in the lield,-and we have been prominent in all that stands for the advancement and betterment of our University, and now that we are about to retire, we say to you, our fellow students,- Farewell. Our life at Millikin has been pleasant and we have done our best to make it prolitable, both to ourselves and to others. And to you, our Alma Mater, we feel the greatest of obligations for your kindly fostering care. May abundant success ever attend your effortsg may you be blessed with the grateful remembrance of many alumni. And now again, and for the last time,-Farewell. -Bonnie Blackburn. Deeds are great but thoughts are greater, Count not desires what you dog Time may change and chance may alter, Let the soul beneath hold true. Deeds are but the soul's expression, Vestments that our thoughts put on. Does the sun that clouds the brilliance Only constitute the dawn? -W. H.

We do admit they offered some encouragement, they had a man who was a Starr among themg but still they were not the band of whom tradition told. Hope was not always to be dc- ferred! On a bright September morning in 1905 Prexie welcomed his dream-children, who came to live, move, and have their being under hispaternal care.

They were apt pupils in the school which teaches "let well enough alone." Even 1908 deemed it wise to retreat before our advances. Then came the Sophomoresg we'll waste no words here over a body of such poor calibre. In scholarship we triumphed over them. They used to croak about some insigniiicant contest, and nothing but a deed of brutish violence at that, a color- rush they called it, in which they gained the upper hand. About that we cannot speak, our memories fail us hereg if such a thing ever happened, it has sunk into oblivion on our part.

The flickering light danced upon the quaint figure of the old slave with his bent hack and short white hair and fan- tastic old clothes. Suddenly the litttle boy cried out: "Uncle Ned, look at the face in the fire." And there, sure enough, was the crude outline of a human face. The seams and sears of a gnarled old knot formed the featuresg the fire glowed fiercely through the two holes which served as the eyes, and over all, the flames cast a dull, red hue. The burning boughs in front, like a veil, concealed the true nature of the apparition. The lady and the little girl turned away quickly from the window and the storm, and came forward. "Dat mus' be de ole Indian," said U11 :le Ned. The flames broke through a ereviee in the knot, and the "Ole Indian" seemed to blow his breath upon them. Uncle Ned drew back and the little girl in terror clung to her mother. Even as they looked, the face faded away. 'fMissus, de darkies say dat when de ole lndian shows his face, somethin' sho' is agwine to happen." The lady trembled as she thought of her husband lying dead on some far-away battle-field or already buried in some forgotten soldier's grave. "Missus, l spec' dat Young Marster has dun gawn and 1'it y'u but sum ob dem no 'count free soljuhrs hab tuk hit awa' from de pahty what was abringin' hit. Young Mars- ter lllll alright. lf he am not, y'u wud hab hyeared from de Kurnel ob his regimen'." The lady glanced around the room more calmly. Never had everything looked so bare, and the home-made clothes of the children seemed even poorer than they were. Some- thing must be done! "Uncle Ned," said the lady. "Yes, marm, 1nissus." "l shall have to sell a part of the plantation soon, Uncle Ned." "You'se agwine to sell a paht ob de ole plantation?" The thing seemed impossible. "Yes, it will have to be sold," and the lady looked at the little boy and girl who were planning a fort with the few old blocks they had. Sadly she turned away and thought again of her lover and the fast horse and the bright sword, and the sweet songs of the little birds came floating back through the warm spring air. Outdoors the rain had ceased and the North wind attacked more fiercely the unprotected crevices of the old house. lt rattled the shutters and wailed dismally around the corners. The children stopped laughing for a moment to listen to the sound. i e. The cold Uncle Ned drew himself closer to the fir seemed to creep into the room and fasten itself upon him. "Dey's agwine to sell a paht ob de lan'," he said to hiI11SClf. "What wud Ole Nlarster what was dead an' gawn an' lay sleepin under de white stones on de hill, what wud he say?" And he thought of the days when the old master was the gallant of the countryside and had gone every Night ill the week to a dance, carrying along with him Uncle Ned and the treasured banjo. l-le remembered the day when the old master had married. The young man with frank and smiling face had led his beautiful bride down the steps of the great house to the carriage between two long lines of grinning slaves and had smiled at him as he went past. The flowers and the music and the dresses and the happy cries of the slaves, all came back to him. And the years in which he had "helped Young Marster grow," how happy the old master had been in those days. The pine knots themselves seemed to catch the spirit of joy, for they popped furiously as if they were a regiment of soldiers Saluting, and the blue and white fiamcs mingled together and tcupcd on the World like a whole company of dancers. the wind At that moment a DI1l'llCl1l11l'lY 101155 shriek of . echoed through the valley.

How many things he thought of to-night, The old slave's mind wandered away from the form of the old master and in its place, there came the vision of 1 1 n v I K llttlc llcgfo b0Y- With a smile overspreadmg his features and his teeth gleaming through the open lips, the boy stooud, with a hshing rod in one h-and and a torn, old Straw hat in the other.

Naw "-- -he hesitated and his face lighted up-"'ccpt I gib dem what dis ole nigger am wuthfl The soldiers departed and Uncle Ned went out to the hot tields. As he dragged his feet overh the long cotton rows, he thought of the things the boy had said. He began to save the little money that was given him. The fair-haired boy on the hearth had fallen asleep. Uncle Ned looked down into his face. The cheeks were round and glowed with the heat of the tire, and the mouth and the eyes were those of the old master. The child smiled as he thought of something pleasant in his dreams. For a long time, Uncle Ned remained motionless, looking at the boy. "lJey's agwine to sell a paht ob de lan' what b'longs to this little fellah an' he ain't agwine to hab as much as Young Marster an' Ole Marstcr. Wud Ole Marstcr think dat he had dun right to let dem sell hit?" ' And he thought of Ole Marster as he lay dying, propped up by the great white pillows, and how when he came into the room where all the white folks were, Ole Marster had said: "Uncle Ned, I am going away and l won't come back. You have been a faithful slave. I want you to watch the old plantation when I am gone." His gaze wandered back tio the flickering flames. He saw another face in the fire. lt was that of a kind old man. The face smiled gravely at him and seemed to say: "Uncle Ned, watch the old plantation." Uncle Ned looked at the little boy again and the gold coins in his pocket burned as fiercely as did the pine knots in the fire. He hesitated a moment, then stole over to the little form and slipped something into the child's hand. "Dere, hit's dun." The tire seemed never to have burned more brightly. His headache was gone, and his back did not hurt and his limbs were not tired. The face seemed to beckon him nearer. He leaned forward to look at it. Suddenly, he arose: "Ole Marster, l'se a-eomin'."

S9 Uhr iliillihrk IHUH mm maxim was Snphnmnre Eiatnrg at Wealth I seek not, hope nor love Nor a friend to know me: All I seek the heaven above And the road before me." One night as I sat musing in my sequestered room, poring over massive volumes of ancient lore, quoting now and then a modern passage from Chaucer or Spenser with feigned admiration, I fell into a deep sleep. As I thus sat sleeping, forgetful of all the worldly things with which a student's mind is al-most always engrossed, I dreamed a dream, and a strange apparition rose up before me in a vision. I saw three angels clad in light, wearing golden crowns set with many stars, each bearing a wreath of glory and a small book that reminded me of Carlyle's "Sartor Resartusf' At first I was fearful and tried to tear the thick veil of light that enveloped me, but the magic splendor of the celestial jewels held me hxedly awed. As I stared at the wonderful glory of those adamantine stars I recognized in each a picture of some great hero or event. While yet I stupidly gazed in astonishment, the first angel raised his book and spoke in fear-dispelling words, "I am the spirit of the past." When he ceased, I had entirely regained my mental equilibrium and freely comprehended every flaming word he spoke thereafter. I'Ie read a tale as won- derful as I'Iomer's famous Epic, of heroes as mighty as Ajax, of deeds as marvellous as Achilles', of seers as wise as Nestor, of gallant foemen worthy of Trojan Hector, of maidens fair as Helen, as sympathetic and true as Andromache. He read of the eighty-seven gallant knights and fair ladies who set out in the autumn of nineteen hundred six A. D., to find the magic fountain of Knowledge, hidden somewhere in a mighty castle in a far-away, strange land, guarded by seven hundred battle-tried warriors taught of forty august sages the pilots of the land. I'Ie told of the triumphal entry of the Freshman Class 'l0 thru the great arched door of the famous clock-tower, into the marble corridors of the palatial structure of the J. NI. U. I-Ie finished his strange narration by reciting with dramatic interpretation the far-famed "Epic of fhe Oak," which tells in glowing words of the fierce battle which took place-that balmy October morning, when the solid square of 'l0 rallied around the Gold and Black and stood as firmly rooted to the ground as the famous oak they defended against the furious onslaughts of the heroic phalanx of '09, whose mighticst impulse recoiled from that wall of briawn as sunbeams reflected from the icy glaciers of the frozen North. And when he had ended his strange but true story he vanished from my sight into the black gloom, and a mightier and grander angel stood before me and said in thunderous tones, "l am the Spirit of the Present," Be- fore l could recover from my embarrassed amazement he raised his book, upon the cover of which was written in letters of pure light, "Sophomore, '10, Wonder Book, J. M. U.," and continued the strange, mysterious theme of his companion. His was indeed a fascinating story. inter- estingly sublime. As nearly as memory recalls, his story ran: On September tenth, nineteen hundred seven, the cele- brated Class of '10 enters stronger, both in numerical value and brain energy, than it had left here as Freshmen the year previous, a gigantic proposition hitherto un- dreamed of at Millikin. Truly great Providence has wonderfully blessed that band. Twice the god of war has shielded them under his grim smile. Conquering. unconquerable, they stand pre- eminent since that pitchy black night succeeding the gloomy day when the Freshman White and Blue tlapped in dingy triumph from the heaven-towering smoke-pile. All day long ambitious tire ranged in Spartan breasts, all day long the colors waved in triumph. Darkness came. and with it the question-will morning dawn on specters conquered or spirits indomitable? But this peaceful midsummer-night scene was soon to alter. Suddenly there was an awful rush, the noise and confusion of battle, a splash in the placid Styx, and the deed was done: twenty-tive Freshmen niet a watery fate. But the colorshyet wave in space. The second great battle was foughtg the second great victory was won. With this he closed the book and said quietly, "My records as yet are incomplete: man molds his destiny-the last chapter remains with you." As he uttered these words he vanished-a specter in the dark- ness-and was seen no more. Yet the pause of a second and T heard the strains of Cllclmlltllltll mllSlC, a melody purer than the strains of the golden harp of Orpheus, and a third angel stood before me, saying kindly: "I am the Spirit of the Future." Scarcely had he ended when T heard the heavy tread of marching feet, and behold: There they came, clad in mortar-board and gown, girded for battle, equipped for life, with bowed heads, the Class of '10, Thru the dim perspective I saw Prexie, Profs. Conant, Stevenson, Shaw, Morton, and the rest, watching the procession with filled eyes. Wlien the angel beheld it he raised his book and sang in tones purer than the silv'ry moonlight this mys- terious but solemn lay: Uhr Millihrk 1 H IJ H Uhr Millihrk 1 9 U H A mighty star is ascending To its zenith in the skyg And its living rays are searching In 'a future that is nigh.

There was a glowing account of the exercises of commencement day, with a picture of the class. VVhen he had read this, the freshman reached down to his suit-case for the Millidek. llc opened it first to thc fraternity picture and then passed on to the freshman class and its history. He had read that history once, but it was well worth reading again. That was a line-looking bunch, that freshman classg what husky, athletic-looking fellows and what pretty girls, especially that one. ' Meanwhile the tr-ain was slowly leaving Decatur and Millikin behind. The freshman replaced his Millidek and returned to his paper, the last Review he'd read for a long time. Bu-t thc cars made such a drowsy noise and the sun came in through the windows and bothered him so, that he covered his face with his paper. lle lay quietly listening to the grind of the wheels and thinking of his grinding that was over. The newsboy came through, selling his papers and the freshman started up only to cover his face again. The brakeman called the station, as the train slowed up, but the freshman lay quietly in his seat. obliv- ious to all his surroundings. There was Doctor Shaw up in 49 talking about class organization, nominations were made and Hampton was elected president. A steady fellow, Hampton was. too, a good kid for the place, but it was sure tough work putting him through. Then the class colors, such a time they had in choosing them, but they made up for the time spent in picking them out. Light blue and dark blue went to- gether tine and didn't they look dandy up on the smoke- stack, even if it was hard work putting them there. My, the sophs were surprised: they just stood at the windows and stared, guess they found out there were a few fresh- men around. Found it out some more. too, when they tried to duck the freshmen-got some of it themselves. At least they wore other suits the next day. The freshmen sure were a line class. The train had stopped and an old man got on and sat down beside the freshman. lt was John Ruskin, the much abused and accursed John Ruskin, His eyes were large and staring, he looked at the freshman as a haunted beast and then began to talk political reformsp Dry old stuff! He talked and talkedg he asked the fretshman's opinion of Turner, and how did he regard nature in relation to God and man? The freshman groaned and turned his back so that the old man stared at him with hurt expression and left. Wlieii he had gone the freshman turned to look for him and there he sat talking to Tom De Quincey, that fellow that took carholic acid or something. NVhat was it he took? lt wasn't carbol'ic acid or morphine, or-was it opium? Yes, that was it-opium. Silly old idiot, didn't Uhr tlllillihrk 19118 any maxim num he know any better than that? And there in front of them sat Emerson and Carlyle, one listening to the conversation and the other reading the Chicago American. Emerson was a dandy. He wrote about love, but half those men never had any experience in the stuff they wrote about. If Carlyle had attended Millikin he'd have known something about real heroes. I-le remembered that he read Emerson when Billy Sundav was in Decatur and how many things Billy Sunday said that was just what Emerson thought. It was about that time that they had such a time about that debate with Illinois College, Roach and Griffin and some other fellow were on the committee, and t'hey did good work, too. Speaking of debates made him think of the Brown debate and how Wand did. W-and worked hard on that debate and did good work. Then in the story con- test, two of them were 'written by freshmen girls, and good stories they were, both of them. The freshman class was a wide-awake bunch, a good all-'round class.

Since the old man was a miser and despised by all he knew, And exceedingly unhappy for a man so "well to do." While the daughter strove to lighten many burdens of her sire With a voice as sweet as angcl's in the blithe celestial choir. At the door there came a pers'nage strange in utterance and form, It was Enzo, faithful ga1'd'ner, seeking labor for the morn. "Peace be with you," said he kindly, as he stepped into the room Like a moonbeam slyly searching for its prey, a bit of gloom. "Howdy, Enzo," spoke the master, with a sad, despondent air, "Why are you so kind and happy in this world of toil and care?" "W'y, 1'm happy 'cause the Saviour guides me safely every day, Makes me kind to all my brothers, helps me cheer them on their way." "O, my Enzo! l'd give acres of the linest land I own If my life could be as sunny. Can he change this heart of stone?" "Just accept him, he will bless you with the joy that comes to all,-- Helping poor, disheartened trav'lers from a hard, disgraeing fall." Years have come and gone since Enzo changed his master's life of gloom, Now they both lie cold and lifeless in a dark and lonely tomb, But they made the world much brighter, Enzo by his words and life, And the master with his money helped the needy--ended strifeg For the life that we call happy, lies not in a pile of gold, But in helping weary brothers on their journey to the fold. -Harry Pifer 4. ,...f .,..,..,.

Down beyond the foundry the begin- ning o'f the line, the' head of the serpent, was lost at the stairway leading to the second floor of a long, narrow building in which whisk-biiooms were manufactured. The whisk-broom factory occupied both stories of the building at the far end of the prison yard. On the ground Hoor men worked at lathes, turninvg out the 'wooden han- dles for the brooms that were finished, sorted, and tied up- stairs. At theicorner the line divided, sixty-hve of the men climbed the stairway to the second Hoor, and the other thirty entered the lathe-room below. On entering the work-room of the second floor, the men assembled before a railed platform, upon which a red- faced, coatless man stood behind a desk. In cold, metallic tones, he called the numbers of the convicts employed on HE line of dingy-coated men stretched along 104 -W. H. B. the "whisk-broom contract," and the latter, each in turn. replied "Here!" when their numbers were spoken. 'tTwenty-thirty-'four!" called the red-'faced man. There was no response. "Twenty-thirty-'fourl" The red-faced man leaned over the desk and glared down. Then a voice from somewhere on the left answered, "l'lere!" "What was the matter with you the hrst time?" snapped the foreman. The man thus questioned removed his -cap and took three steps toward the platform. In feature, the word "hard" would describe him. His head was long, wide at the forehead, and yet narrow between the temples. His eyes were small and close together. Th lower jaw was square and heavy, and the ears protruded abnormally. A trifle afbove medium height, with a pair of drooping, twitch- ing shoulders, the man looked criminal. To the question he replied doggedly, "I answered tl1e first time, sir, but I guess you rlidn't 'hear me." The foreman gazed steadily at the man. Their eyes met. The foreman's did not waver, but "2034" lowered his and fumbled nervously with his cap. "All right," replied the foreman, quietly, "but I guess youql better report to the warden as soon as you get thru in here. Don't wait for any piece-woirk. Go to 'him as soon as you have finished your task. I'll tell him you're coming. He'll be waiting for you in the front ofhcef' "Yes, sir." Th-e convict did not raise his eyes. He stepped back into line. Then, at the clap of the foreman's hands, the men broke ranks, and each walked a-way to his own bench or machine. Five- minutes later, the swish of the corn-wisps HS they were separated and tied into rough brooms, and the occa- sional tap of a hammer, were the only sounds in that long room where sixty-live men t0ilCfl- At ten minu-tes' past three o'elock, 2034 crossed to the platform. "What do you want?" asked the foreman, as he eyed keenly the man in t'he dull-gray suit. "A paper of small itacks," was the reply, quietly spoken. The- necessary order was written, and as 2034 moved away to the door leading to the stock-room, the man on the plat- form watched him closely from between half-closed lids. A guard who had come around from behind the broom- bins noticed the' way in which the foreman followed every movement of the convict, and stepping over to the plat- form asiked, in an undertone, "Anything wrong, Bill?" "That's what I don't know, George," the foreman re- plied. "That man Riley's 'been acting queer of late. I've 105 got an idea there's something up his sleeve. There's not a harder man on the contract than that fellow. and by the way he's been carrying on, sullen like and all that, Fm fearing someth-ing's going to happen. You remember him, don't you? What, no? Why, 'he's that Riley from Acorn. He came in two years ago on a burglary job in Clive, where he shot a drug clerk that oficrcd objections to his carrying off everything there was in the shop. They made it manslaughter, and he's in for fifteen years. And I'm told there's another warrant for him when he gets out, for a job done four years ago in Kentucky. I'Te's a bad one. A fellow like that is no good round this shop." The guard smiled cynically at the foreman's suggestion that a convict may be too bad even for prison surround- ings. "And his influence over the boys isn't ,for good. either." went on the foreman. "Thcre's not a fellow in- side these walls that for the sake of getting out would com- mit violence quicker than Riley. llut l've got my eye on him, and Vin sending him up to the warden this afternoon. Say, George, when you go back, will you tell the warden Riley's coming up to call on him this afternoon, and tell him what I'vc been telling you about him, will you?" "Sure, Bill," was the smiling reply of the guard as he moved away. 2034 had returned with his paper of tacks and had gone directly to his bench. lt was a quarter to four by the forcman's watch when the door at the head of the stairway opened and the war- den entered, accompanied by two friends, whom he was shoiwing thru the "plant," as he always persisted in call- Zllhv Hllillihrk 1 B IJ B any Millihrk inns ing the prison. The warden was a stout, jovial man who looked more- like a bishop than a "second father" to eight hundred criminals. The foreman did not observe his en- trance into the roolm, and only looked up when he heard his voice. "This is where the whisk-brooms are made," the Will'- den was explaining to his friends. "On the floor below, which we just left, you will remember we saw the boys turning out broom-handles. Some of th-e' work, you see, is done by imlachine. The brooms are tied and sewed, th-o-, by hand, over at those benches." As the warden ceased speaking, the foreman leaned across the desk and tapped him on the shoulder. "Riley's coming in to see you this afternoon. He's been acting queer-don't answer the call, and the like. I thought maybe you could call him down." The warden only nodded, and continued his explana- tions to the visitors. "Now," he said, moving away to the door leading into the room beyond, "if you will come over here I will show you our store-rooms. You see we have to' keep a lot of material on hand. Beyond this second room the stuff is stored up, and is taken into the stock-room as it wanted. Between the rooms we have arranged these big sliding iron doors that, in case of fire, could be dropped, and thus, for a few minutes at least, cut the flames off from any rvoom but that in which they originated.. See?" He pulled a lever at the side of tl1e door and a heavy iron sliding-sheet dropped slowly and easily to the fioor. "You see," he went on, "that completes the wall." 106 The visitors nodded. "Now come on thru here and look at the straw and velvet we have stored away in bales." The visitors followed the warden thru the second room, and into the third. There, ranged regularly on the floor, were huge bales of broom-straw, and against the walls of the room boxes upon boxes of velvets, taeks, ornaments, bits of metal, and all of the other separate parts of the whisk-broom. The visitors examined the tins and felt of the bales of straw. "Very interesting," observed one of the men, as he drew his cigar-case from his pocket, and biting the tip from one of the cigars it contained, struck alittle wax match on the sole of his shoe. He held the match in his hand until it had burned down, then threw it on the floor, and followed the warden and the other visitor under the heavy iron screen into the work-room of the factory. The foreman was busy a-t his books, and did not observe the little party as it passed thru the shop and out at the big door. Ten minutes later, a guard sauntered intlo the room and stopped at the first of the benches. He idly picked up one of the finished brooms and examined it. His attention was just then distracted by some one pulling at his coat from behind, He turned. "Why, Tommy, my boy, what is it?" The tiwo soft brown eyes of a little child were turned up to him. "l'n1 loolking for papa," replied the little fel- low. "The foreman downstairs said he comed up here. Uncle George is back in the house, and mamma sent me to Gnd papa." The guard patted the little fellow's head. "And we will find him, Tommy," he said. He went over to the foreman's desk. "Bill, did the warden come up here? Tommy's looking for him, his mother sent him out." The foreman raised his eyes from his books. "Yes," he replied, "he went in there with a couple of gentlemen." Th guard looked down at the little boy. "He's in the stock-room," he said. "You'll find him in there, Tommy." Then he turned and walked out of the shop. The child ran on into the room beyond. His father was not there. The stock-keeper did not observe the little boy as he tip- ast t'he desk. Tommy passed on into the further room. I-Ie knew he would find his father in there, and he would crawl along between the tiers of straw bfales, and take him by surprise. He had hardly passed the door 'when the stock-keeper, raising his head from the lists of material he was prepar- ing, held his face up and sniffed the air. Quietly he arose from his revolving chair and went to the door of the straw-room. He merely peered inside. Turning sudden- ly, he pressed upon the lever near the door, and the iron screen slid into place, cutting off the further room. Then, snatching a few books that lay on his desk, he slipped out into the shop, and at that door released the second screen As it fell into place with a sllight crunching noise, the fore- man turned in 'his chair. The eyes of the two men met. The stock-keeper raised his hand and touched his lips with toed, in a childish 'way, p the first finger. xo7 t "Get the men out! Get the men out!" he gasped. 'The store--room is on fire!" The foreman rapped on the table twice. Every man working in the-room turned and faced the desk. "Work is over for today," said the foreman. His man- ner was ominously calm, and the men looked at each other wonderingly. "Fall in!" At the order, the dingy gray suits formed the same old serpent, and the line moved rapidly thru the door at the end of the room and down the outside stairs. There, in front of the building, they were halted, and a guard dispatched to find the warden. He was discov'e-red in the foundry. "Fire in the broom-shop," whispered the guard. The warden's face paled. l-le dashed thru the doorway and one minute later came around the corner of the build- ing, just in time to see the' first signs of flame against the windows of the rear room upstairs, Within fifteen seconds a troop of guards had drglvvn the little hand engine from its house and hitched the hose to the hydrant nearest the shop. From all the other build- ings the men were being marched to their cells. "These men!" hurriedly whispered the foreman to the warden. "What shall I do with them?" "Get 'em inside as soon as you can! This can't last long, the front ofthe building is cut off." The fofemilll gave an order. At that instant a woman came running down the prison yard. Reaching the war- den's side, she fell against him heavily. Uhr Millihrk 1 H Il B Uhr :lllllillihzk 1 HHH "Why, Harriet," he exclaimed, "what is the matter?" "Oh," she gasped, "Tommy! Tommy! where is Tommy?" A guard at the end of the engine rail turnied ashy pale. He raised a hand to his head, while the other grasped the wheel to keep him from falling. Then he cried, "Mr, Jef- fries, l-T believe Tommy is up there in t'he stock-room. He went to look-" The warden clutched the man's arm. "Up there? Up there?" he cried. The sudden approach of the woman and the words that followed had wrought so much confusion that the men paid no attention to the foreman's command, and he had even failed to notice their lack of attention, in the excite- ment of the moment. "Great God!" cried the warden. "What can I do- what can T do? No one can live up there!" There was a crash. One of the windows fell out. "Get a ladder!" someone -cried. A guard ran back toward the prison-house. Then, in the midst of the hubbub, a man in a dingy gray suit stepp-ed out a yard from the line of convicts. His prison number was 2034. l-Te touched his little square cap. "lf you'll give me permission, I think 'l can get up there," was alll he said. "You! You!" exclaimed the iwarden. "No, no, I will tell no man to do it!" There was a second crash. Another window had fallen out, and now the tongues of flame were lapping the walls above. 108 The convict made no reply. With a bound he was at the end of the line and dashing up the outer stairway. The warden's wife was on her knees, clinging to the hand of he'r husband. ln his eyes was a dead, cold look. A few of the men bit their lips, and the faint shadow of a smile played about the mouths of others. They all waited. A convict had broken a regulation-had run from the line! He would be punished. liven as he had clambered up the stairs, a guard had cried, "Shall T shoot?" The silence was broken by a shriek from the woman kneeling at the warden's feet. "Look," she cried, and pointed to the last ofthe windows upstairs. There, surrounded by a halo of smoke, and hemmed in on all sides by flames, stood a man in a dingy gray suit. One sleeve was on Ilre, but he heat out the flames with his left hand. Those below heard him cry, "Pvc got him!" Then the figure disappeared. Instantly it returned, bear- ing something in its arms. lt was the limp form of a child. All saw the man wrap smoking straw around the- body. and tie around that two strands of heavy twine. Then that precious burden was lowered out of the window. The father rushed forward and held up his arms to receive it. Another foot-he hugged the limp body of his boy to his breast! On the ground a little way back lay a woman as if dead. "l-Tereis the ladder," cried the foreman, and at that moment the eyes that were still turned upon the window above witnessed a spectacle that will reappear before them again and again in visions of the night . I The coat the man wore was ablaze. Flames shot out on either side of him and ahove him. Just as the ladder was placed against the wall, a crackling was heard-not the crackling of tire. Then, like a thunder-bolt, a crash occurred that caused even thenien in their cells to start, The roof caved in! In the prison yard that line of convicts sa-w 2034 reel and fall backward, and heard, as he fell, his last cry, "Fm a-cominl, warden !" He was a convicted criminal, and died in prison gray. But it would not seem wonderful to the warden if, when that n1an's sold took flight, the Recording Angel did write his name in the eternal Book of Record, with the strange, cabalistic sign,-a ring around a cross,-that stands for "good bch:-.vior." Oh Lord, this life of anxious, uncourageous care, And day unmarked of day doth burden me, A life of sellish, unavailing works, And word and deed formed for an audience's car, l do not hold as worth the living for. Give mc, O Lord, the chance to do great good, Or failing that the chance to do great wrong. 109 Uhr Mllillihrk 19 H B WNW! Will!! ILMWI WI IWW! ltll l UI UU WIN! lull!

Frizz Stare Au llntrnh Hath n was a fool in those days-a fool in more ways than one, but most of all when the war came and I joined Flitman's Irregulars, a band of guerrillas from a neighboring county. Their ways of abandon and license, ungraced by order, appealed to us wild blades far more than the regular service. For I had early learned to discard the wise conn- sels of my widowed mother, and to spend most of my time in company with a crowd of village rowdies and ne'er-do- wells. And none of them could excel me in daring or in utter disregard ofthe consequences. Yet I was not wholly bad, and many a night I had come home from some deep carousal or lawless expedition to hours of contrition and heart-sorrow-to fervent prayer for escape from the hell so terribly provided for me. We had come down into central Tennessee and were now eneamped in a wood some two miles from the little town of Mapleton. It was a beautiful country-beautiful even for the Southland. War had not yet made it a deso- lationg and the wide plantations, with their varied life, each centering afbout the regal mansion, seemed like the sudden realization of some long-abandoned ideal. There was a company of home volunteers in the neigh- borhood, young fellows mostly, fairly btrbtbling over with courage and fight. They attacked us, entrenched tho we were by the wood, and all but carried the day. I will long remember that, fight, both because of what occurred after- I ward, and because it was here that I killed my first man. I-Ie was behind a tree and I never saw him afterward. But I heard that groan, and shall hear it to my dying day. And I thought, what if it were a boy like myself?--but I dared not go and seeg for I knew. if it were. it would haunt me forever. I shut my eyes, and I saw the image of a young fellow with curled locks-and dreamy eyes and a certain vivid energy, such a one as l had seen the day before at a near-by manor house. Oh God! if it were he! My heart became sick within mc at the thought. I pointed the place out to a comrade, and turned away. It was the afternoon of the same day that Iflitman, a rough, burly coward, and some ten of us fellows, scouring the country for provision and for trouble, came up to a plantation-the very one where the lad lived that had arisen in my mind's eye when I shot the man-I never call him boy-in the woods. To my surprise as we halted some distance away. he was standing there on the wide veranda, clad in the Confederate uniform. I paled and reeled as if he had come from the land of the dead, perhaps there was a presentiment in my emotion. As I recovered myself, I saw him talking with an elderly gentleman, thin and spare, dignified and handsome, and ta slight slip of a girl. with yet a certain regality about her appearance. Flitman bade ns all seek shelter. I wondered at it, but l did not hesitate. I saw the strange workings of his mouth, a presage of evil always with him, but 1 did not Tillie millihrk IHUH Uhr illllillihrk 1 9 H H have sense enough to guess its meaning. I have figured it out since that there was some hidden enmity between him and the old man, and he chose thus fouly to avenge itg or else he was stark mad with bloodthir-st. The little company came out to the gate and the son mounted his horse and, with a farewell kiss of the hand, rode off. I-Ie had not gone fifty yards when a gun cracked, and he fell from his saddle, a corpse. I did not loolkg I could guess too much. But I turned to Flitman, who coolly laughed and said something about "a line tragedy." My whole soul became alive with hatred of the cowardly murderer. 1 pulled my revolver and stuck it in his face, and I had sent his soul to hell in one moment, but that Jo Hawkins, his boon companion in villainy, struck me with the stock of his gun. Pk :if :if ff as wk in Pk I was unconscious for a long time. In fact I remember no more till it was dark and I found myself lying on the hard Hoor of a negro cabin. The men were seated about a low fire, an-d, as the flickering gleam lit up their faces, I could see the tense lines of fear and anxiety and un- nameable horror. Then the memory of that crime flashed upon me, and the weirdness of it all made me half believe we were no longer on earth. The room was very stillg so still I was half startled out of my wits when someone said that "the kid had come to." But no one answered him, nor seemed to care. What had happened I could not guess, and it was long before I knew all. A rumor of approaching Confederates had sent the Irregulars scurrying northward, leaving their 118 leader to shift for himselfg and he, after a vain effort to find them, had sought a passing refuge in the isolated cabin, with those of us who were with him. Why they had not left me to my fate I could never understand. The silence was oppressive, and yet, strange to say, no one heard a footstep when suddenly there came a knocking at the door. The men shrank back in terror, but one of the bolder of them cried "Come in!" The door opened and admitted-a girl. To my surprise it was the same one I had seen upon the veranda, the sister of the dead boy. She was beautiful. The straight nose, not too long, the Hrm mouth and well-rounded chin, but above all the eyes shone out like diamonds from the gloomy cloudiness of her eye-brows. She was young, too, not above seven- teeng and such soul and spirit! Quickly she spoke and intensely, as tho buoyed up by great excitement and resolve. "I don't know which of you killed Tom, but you didn't all do it. And they'll hang you every one if they catch you here, and 'twould be as wrong to kill people that didn't do it as for him"-her voice broke as she finished-"to kill Tom." Those last words seemed for the time to wither the energy of her purpose. She hesitated and looked furtively over the men, as tho s'he half hoped in some way to single ont the real culprit. lrler love for her dead brother and her desire to save the innocent struggled with one another thru long seconds. She walked the untrod path t'hat day, the path that tries the strongest soul. But at length she was herself again, and there was a note of calmness in her voice as, with the precision of a general, she mapped .4 out the course they were to follow. And then, when she had answered their eager questions, they one by one slouched out with never a word of gratitude. Only Flit- man, as he passed her, said tauntingly, "Thank you, miss, for you good principles." And, as he paused in the door- way, he added in a tone that sent my blood cold-and yet it was soft enough-"Will you go with us?" She turned toward him, crying, "You are his mur- derer, then!" And a fierce light gleamed in her eyes. "No-no," he cried beseechingly, cringin-g before her. Then he saw me in the corner. "There he isg I leave him to your care," and without another word he was gone. She came over and looked down and said, almost dazedly, "No, it ean't be you. Why, you're just a boy like Tom!" And a look of anguish and self-reproach c-ame over her face. "And I let him go-Tom's murderer. Poor father, how he loved Tom! He was his only son. But I eouldn't have done differently, could I?" she said, appealingly. I could have kissed her at that-so kind and so thought- ful--but I didn't. I told her of it once afterward, and she said it would have spoiled everything and she was glad I had waited,-but that's another story. Her words and her helplessness filled me with lireg and, altho I was as weak as a kitten, I stumbled to my feet and vowed I would hunt Flitman down tho I died for it. "No, no," she cried, almost bitterly. "You could do nothing. If father were only here, perhaps--. Oh, what will he think of me?"- II Then she told how she had come along with her father and the searching party, and she felt sorry for us even then, and hoyv she had seen the gleam of light over the hills and thought, perhaps, wc were there, and how she had slipped away from the rest and had come that lone, dreary way to warn us of our danger. What a brave heart she had! But never was it actuated by a nobler purpose than when she went up there among her enemies to save the innocent, even tho that might mean the escape of her brothcr's slayer. As she was still talking, there came, up the long trail, sounds of horses' hoofs. "Oh, it's father!" and her face gleamed joyfully. She was out of the cabin in an instant. running to meet them. I dragged myself to the door and saw, at last, a little eavalcadc wind in and out among the trees and, nearer, the Hitting form of the girl. came up to them, there was an exclamation, a halting, and the murmur of voices. After a time they came up to the cabin and entered. The gir1's face was lilled with anxiety and sorrow, as tho she labored under the disapproval of those she loved. The men were evidently excited and angry over the escape of those they deemed murderers, but with true Southern courtesy they had no words of condem- nation for the girli. But the old man, wrapped up in his love for the boy, forgot himself, and bitterly reproached her, calling her "ungrateful child," and saying that she had allied herself with his slayers. She turned red and white by turns. she staggeredg she opened her lips, but no words came. l could bear it no longer, but, supporting myself by the window-sash, I called for him to cease in God's name, and hear me. As she Uhr imlillihrk 1 9 Il B Uhr illilillthrk 1 HHH They murmured that I was the one she had spoken of, and, while they looked at me in wonder, I began and told them my story, just as I felt it and as I will tell it before the great Judgment Bar. And thru it all, I dwelt upon the noblenes of her deed. When I was done, they were silent for a long time. Then the old Southcrner drew his daugh- ter to him and kissed her. There was a catch in his voice as he whispered that she had acted just as Tom would have done, and that she was to be his son now. But in his eyes a great pride struggled with his tears. -William Bantill. Uhr Bnlhier What is the gain of the soldier?

Various incidents of sundry kind served to enliven the trip. The I debaters were entertained by one of the VVesleyan frater- nities and a reception to the visitors was given in the corridors of the university after the debate. The visit to Rlomningtun will lung be remeinbered by Millikin students.

The membership when the school year opened in September was forty-six, but a systematic campaign for members was made and the present membership is one hundred and sixty. The first week was a busy one for the Association girls, the trains were met and the new girls taken to the University and assisted in any way possible. On Thursday afternoon of that first week an informal tea was held in the Association rooms, the old girls being the hostesses. ffere the new girls became acquainted and felt less strange in attending the joint reception given by the Young lVfen's and Young NVomen's Christian Associations on Friday night, in the corridors of the Liberal Arts Hall. This proved a great success. Several hundred students attended. But now to another side of the work,--the religious side. Weekly meetings have been held and this year the time has been changed from Saturday to Thursday at 11:40. There has been a marked increase in attendance, the 'average being about seveiity. fn December the State Secretary made us a visit and led one of the joint meet- ings with the Young Men's Christian Association. HE year 1907-1908 has been one of the best I During th'e hrst month. we had two systematic cam- paigns, one for Bible Study and the other for Mission Study classes. As a result there are three Bible Study classes conducted by the Association, and one Normal class,-an enrollment of about ninety girls in Bible Study and other classes. The Mission Study classes were organized, three in number, two studying lndia and one China. At the Missionary Rally a hundred dollars were raised by pledges for the Mission work in South America. The financial side has been well taken care of. The girls have been very liberal and pledged most of the money necessary to carry on the work, so there has been but little need to give outside affairs. The budget amounted to 3375.00 for the year. April 17 and 18 the Association entertained the Central Illinois Cabinet Conference. The new girls on the various cabinets of the colleges in Central lllinois were present and leaders were also here to instruct them in their new duties. We are planning for greater results next year. We are hoping to raise money for a salary for a General Secretary, as the held here is so large that one is quite necessary. We close this year, realizing that we have accomplished much for the University, yet much has been left undone, to be finished the next year. ' -Louise Stevenson.

By persistent effort this was soon brought about and the first meeting was held in room 110. The first meetings were held in the Literary Society Halls, but after a short time a more suitable place was arranged by using Prof. l'laker's room, now known as the old Y. M. C. A. room. After having been given the new room in December 1903 the young men set about to furnishing it. A mnnber of friends helped the boys. The Race Clothing Company gave a large rocker. Pres. A. R. Taylor, realizing the inclination of the fellows, gave an arm-chair. A large oak ta'ble was donated by C. W. Dyer and "Bill" Sears. The boys bought ehirty-six chairs. Some of those first meet- ings were small in nuimbers-ranging from one dozen up to twenty. The year 1907-1908 brings forward the brightest record in the history of the Association. The time of meeting was changed from Saturday to Thursday at the regular hour, thus affording an opportunity to a larger number of men to attend the meetings,--especially making provision that those who were interested in athletics should not be prevented from coming. By a special arrange- ment students were permitted to join the down-town Y. M. C. A. at special rates, entitling them to membership in both Associations. This has been a good feature of the year, one that built up, and one that put the two Associations in OON after the University was opened in the close touch with each other. The committee on religious meetings, Verne Ross, chairman, has done faithful work and deserves commenda- tion. The meetings have been excellentg the leaders, al- most without exception, have been men of the faculty, down-town ministers, or business men. The membership committee, li. Starr Cole, chairman, has also done good work, as shown by the increase in membership. It has more than doubled that of last year. This was due not to economic conditions alone, but to individual effort on the part of consistent workers. A In December the Association was given a larger and better' room. lt had outgrown the old quarters. The walls of the new room were tinted, changing it from a store-roo-m to a beautiful and spacious room for the meet- ings. The German circle added twenty-tive good oak chairs to the furnishings. Since the dedication of the new room the greatest meetings in the history of the Associa- tion have been held and the spirit shown has been ex- cellent. The growth of interest in the work is marvellous. On February 27th at the regular meeting there were about one hundred twenty-tive men present-thus changing our "top- notchcrf' The year has been eminently successful. notcher," fifty, to this figure.

As the shades of night were deepening,- Down the road an old man tottered, ln 'his hand a staff like jaeob's, While' his shoulders were bent over, And l1is clothes were thin and tattered, And his long beard like the snofw-Hakes, And his eyes were dim and sunken As he wandered slowly onward. Up the hill so steep and slippery, Clinihed he upwards, slowly, painfully Till he stood upon the suminitg Then he paused a while and rested, Leaning on his staff in silence,- While the shades of night grew denser, And 'the snow came down more thickly. Just a little distance onwarfd, Then he paused before a mansion, Builded there out in the country, VVith strong walls of brick and mortar, With wide porch and many windows. From the windows lights were streaming 'Gaiinst the pine trees that stood 'round themg 142 And the sound of mirth and laughter Drifted outward on the snow-storm. Then the old man smiled in silence And his heart beat wildly tender.- lior thejoy that Christmas bringeth, As he stood and rang the door-bell. At the door the father answered, For a moment paused in silence, While the old man beggefd for lodging. Then in voice boith stern and heated Bade the old man depart: "We've no time for tramps and beggars For we have a Christmas party, And your presence is distasteful With your torn and ragged garments, Piping voice and beard a Flowing. Still, besides, I hate' a wandererg Go and build a home as T have, Then you will 'not be out tramping Through the cold nights of December." llere the old man bowed in silence, Turned about i11to the highway. Still the mansion lights kept gleaming And the laughter pe'aled in torrents As they played the games each loved best: Little thinking of the meaning That the eve of Christmas bringeith. Then the hour for supper cometh, And when seated 'round the table Groaning 'neath its heavy burden Of the best from every elimate,- Borwed the fat'her's head in reverence, Asked the God of all the living Who that night had given Jesus As a savior to all mankind, To be near and bless his household, And the guests that had assembled. Down the road the old man staggered, And the snow was getting deeper, While his steps were getting weaker. On 'he went and do-wn the long hill, 'Cross the bridge into the' valley, Patiently he wandered onward Down a narrow-winding road-way, Till he stood before a cabin Buildcd there within the forest. From its small and only window, Gleamed a light upon the snow-storm. Then the old man rapped the rude door With his hand so cold an'd weary,- ln an instant it Hew open, When before him stood a woods-man Rowing low and bade him welcome, Ere the old man asked for lodging. Seated there before the hre-place. In the only easy rocker, Cheerfully the old man waited While the wife of this kind 'woods-man Got his supper, plain but wholesome. When the supper was all over Just this woods-man and his kind wife With their guest so strange and happy. Then his face took on more gladncss When t'he woods-man kindly asked him If he'd tell for them the story Of the Christ-child in the manger. How he told that wondrous story Of which mankind never weary, How their hearts beat high with rapture, While the te-ars of joy upwclling Flowed unbidden down their rough eheeksg Never had man heard that story Told in such a matehless fashion. I-low their hearts ached for the mother When the inn would not receive her,- Then how glad they were that shelter Could be found among the cattle. When the old man reached the portion Where the' angels sang that chorus, Lifted he his voice in singing lnto tones so sweet and joyful,-- While his face gleamed forth with glory Lighting up the entire cabin. Here his tattered garments faded Into robes of snowy whiteness And his staff became a trumpet, To perfection changed his body- Then the woods-man and his good wife Gazed upon this scene of glory Till the vision vanished skyward, For their strange guest was an angel! Then they gathered 'round the fire-place, ".lf1mCS LlVCly- Uhr Mtllihrk IHU H Gllpr illlillihrk 19118 ? 5 USIC Violins: Caroline Pmvcri Mary l'lCll1CllW1ly l'lCI'lllJl Tl'Jl1lUl11lll Ruth Lavery llulcu Mills Lola Sccfortll llc-l'l1:11'cl Spzlcill wrrhvutru lf.

As originally planned, the Society was to consist entirely of junior and senioir engin- eers. Because of the small number in these classes, it was seen that the Society could never become an important factor in the school life of the engineer. To remedy this defect the constitution was amended so that all college engineers might become members of the Society. The object of the Society is to keep in closer touch with modern engineering problems than can be done hy a series of courses from text-hooks. This is accomplished by a discussion of the articles running in the leading en- gineeering magazine and 'by an occasional lecture.

The Commerce and Finance Association is an organi- zation of the young men in the School of Commerce and Finance. The purpose is social fellowship.

The young men, who had re- ceived promotions, were calling out congrat- ulations to one :mother and, of the older men, some lo-oked happy, some, disappointed, while a few sat with bowed heads. As his friends were bidcling him farewell, Walter Rober remarked to himself, "How v-ery hard it is sometimes to think all thinigs work together for good." Rober ha-d just completed his course in a theological school and had expectterd a better place than Mount Gilead. All the way home he sat with a paper lying unread on his knee, while he stared out of the car window, disappointment written all over his face. FTER the bishop had finished reading the it in wk it in bk af Sitting in his little study in the parsonage at Mount Gilead, Walter Rober had just completed his Hrst sermon. As it lay on the desk before h-im he gazed at it proudly, this finished pro-duct, such as he had often written in the seminary. How well-rounded and polished those sen- tences were, how strong that theological argument, and how grandly it rang from his lips. H et could see his audi- ence now, their plain faces turned toward him in eager lis- tening, their hearts thrilled with his words. just as he was delivering the last sentence to the sun going down in the west he heard a knock at the door. ln answer to his "Come," his mother ushered in a trembling, old man, whose one hand was holding his hat and cane, while the other was extended to-ward Rober. As the two men shook hands he said, "My name's Abe Perkins, Uncle Abe they call me an' as I was a-passin' here, I happened to think the new parson's name was Rober. So I thought I'd drop in and see if you was any kin to Will Rober, I used to 'know down at Big Bend." On hearing that it was Rober's father, the old man contin- ued, "When yer pap was preacher down there he merried me and Cynthy, an' baptized an' buried our lirst baby. 1-le was a good man, yer pap was, I do hope you're like 'im. He preached the plain ol-d gospel without none o' them high-fallnltiin' idees that's thrown i'n now-a-days, just preached Christianity fer us pore folks to understan' it an' to live it." The old man chatted on in this way for some time, then, rose to go, saying, as he hothbled toward the door "Well, Walter, l'm goin' to call you that, l'll be out tomorrer to hear you preach. I hope you'll preach -like yer pap, he iwas larned like you, but he never forgot to give comfort to us hard-working folks." After the old man had gone and he could no longer hear the thump of the cane on the board-walk, Rober went back to his sermon, but it seemed dull and lifeless. now. There was no message in it for the poor, hard-working people of Mount Gilead. He gathered it up suddenly and started toward the Iire, but he turned back, smoothed out the crumpled sheets and lay them on the desk. As he sat down and started to read it, the words of Uncle Abe Uhr illllillihrk IHHB Uhr millihek 1 H ll H Perkins kept ringing in his ears, l hope you'll preach like yer pap, he was larned like you, but he never fergot to give comfort to us pore hard-working folks." While he was sitting there in the darkness trying to picture the people of Mount Gilead listening to his ser- mon only one faee appeared to him, the face of his father. He heard that familiar vo-ice saying, "l'll be going home soon, Laddie, but you know you're to till my place in the world." Would this have been his father's message to the simple farmers of lX'lotmtGilead? Walter gaze-d about the room as if for help, but the books he had ehe'rished so much in his college days eou-ld not help him, now. lfle looked out into the dark night over the homes of those simple people and thought of their rest for the Sabbath day. VVould their hearts be touched by that sermon lying be- fore him? He slipped to his knees and p1'ayed, how long he did not know, but just as the clock on the mantel strnck o-ne, he rose to his feet. llis face was pale and drawn as he knelt before the grate, stirred the dying em- bers, and lay among them the- great work that was to have thrilled the hearts of his listeners. ' :if :tt at lk if :if - :if Wztlter Rober's first sermon was not the finished dis- course he had thought it would be, but only the' simple message of an inexperienced boy with the 'love otf God in his heart. On one side of the church sat the women, weeping. On the other side, some of the men had bowed their heads and were praying and others were looking and listening, eager to catch every word. Uncle Abe Perkins sat on the front seat, his face smiling as if the sunlight of heaven had fallen on him. lt was as if the ltlaster, himself, again walked among men and women and was calling, "Come unto me all ye that labor and I' will give you rest." .Xt the close of the service the people gathered about their new pastor and grasped his hand, thanking him for his message of hope. They were Iilled with new courage and zeal for the weari:-some drudgery of life. "You did BWI' fllthcl' proud, my boyg you did yer father proud," said Uncle Abe as they parted at the parsonage gate, "That might have been his own sermon." --joy Van Cleve, 162 i XYZ 2 N .D QQQU E fmffx f a Wmvax N I ,hd QM X 4.5.

Afar to the east the clouds that clung to the horizon were a deep blue, cleft now and then by the red line of the lightning. The rest of the sky showed beautiful gradations between the light of the west and the darkness of the east in thc loosely driven masses. The wheatlields were ripening and in the evening light they seemed like fields of gold, the corn rustled and the trees scattered here and there loomed up dark and startlingly, all was beautiful and mys- terious. In the city, too, the twilight seemed to be closing in about a mystery, many mysteries indeed, but they were black and hideous. Long shadows like heralds of ill-- heralds of shame and crime indeed fell across the long narrow dirty streets. A close murkiness like a plague hung over the city and the tall plain unemotional buildings seem to suggest drooping withered weeds. ' Down a little close littered alley hurried a small child woman that summer evening. Withered she was, like the city about her, early she had toiled for the crumbs that the beast--shall we call it Society or the World-had left her. Who is to blame, not you? Not l? God knoiws, per- haps none of us. Early she had toiled:--she 'was still young as you and I count years but old, old in toil uu- recompeused, in hope deferred, in longings never to be satislied. But that evening there was a glow in her cheek, T was evening in the country. The sun I a glow that assumed one moment almost the suggestion of the rosiness of youth. She was happy, too, for a smile hung timidly on her lips and she hummed a little tune as she looked down at a deep red rose that she carried in one hand and tenderly touched and stroked with the other. She had bought it ofut of her little hoard for her brother at home who lay perhaps sleeping, perhaps thinking of her. He had lain there always she had come to think-many, many years she knew. He was her little brother, tho but a few years younger, for his mind was still a chil'd's and for years his body had not grown. And because he needed her love so' badly and because he was now the only one left to love her even in his feeble way her devotion to him had become the passion of her life. So tonight, joyfully amid all the gloom of the wicked city she hurried on and came at last to a large, crudely put together building where up High! after flight she toiled till at last she reached, just off from the landin'g, a smal'l dingy room, her own and her brother s. , She entered softly and found him looking intently out of the small dingy window. She came up to where he was and asked him whiat he thought of. lile turned slightly but kept on looking out ofthe window. Then suddenly 'he cried "Mary, if all those people out there' could look through my window, could they see all I can see?'l Then she brought out the flower and placing it before him, she watched his smiles and gleeful exclamations. He picked a leaf and held it in his hand and turned it over. "Who made the roses?" he asked wonderingly. "God did, little brother, hc makes everything" "Did he make us, too? nl "Yesf' "I wonder why he didn't make' us all roses thenf' "Perhaps because he wanted some one to love the roses, little brother." "Mary, where' does God live? I want to tell him I want to be made over into a rose. Does the policeman know where he lives?"-and again he mused. ft: 11: :tc 1:1 ir :t :nf Whether because of the oppressive heat or because of the progress of his disease. the brother was ill the next morning: unable to raise his head off the cot or to take the little food she could offer him. He had often been sick thus for days and she had gone on with her work leaving him during the day alone, though guarded by the casual watchfulness of a tender-hearted German lady of the same Iloor. VVhen she returned that evening, hurriedly and anx- iously she heard, as she reached the tloor belo-w. a bustle' of soft treadings. Her heart sank within her. VVas he dead? The thought came to her like the shock of dissolution it- self. God who had given heir nought else would not tear away 'from her the life that was more to her than life it- self. Yes. God had done worse thin'gs than that, she had seen him do it. llad he not killed Rachel INIasen's babe and had he not left many people to starve when the factories closed and had he not sent soldiers to kill fathers and sons who fought I I for bread and loved ones? Why did God make food and then not let people eat it? .But her illusions were soon dispelled by the smiling face of the' Germ-an matron who shook her head and said "lt's all right, Mary. Der is a doctor comes, I dotn't know where he tells me but I don't know and he says that Charley-oh I don't know but Charley will be alright after- while maybe and Charley lies still and talks and smiles and all the Ilat is 'talking for it's the doctor and it will be alright afterwhilc maybe.', Reassured but wondering who this doctor might be. Mary with her buxom and taltkative comrade came' up stairs and to her room. .-'X tall, pleasant, slitghtlv bearded young man met them at the door and greeted them. "Ah, Mary, is it? I am Dr. lfless of the Settlement. The policeman of this beat lives here, lbelieve-came up to see his little friend-wasn't at his window, he said. Then he came to us. we had helped him, you see, when he was a hungry tramp from the westt and naturally he thinks we can help everybody. Well, we do our best and so I thought I'd see if I could help Chtarley, if you're willing, of course." In broken wotrds Mary apologized for herself and for her little brother and was altogether quite tlurried and unable to tell just whatt she should do. But the Doctor had something- he knew he' must do, to prepare her for the news that her brother could not live. "Little one" he said to her tenderly as he closed the door on the otlieious German woman and the rest of the Hat and brought a chair and compelled heir to sit down. "'I'ell me about the little brother." Uhr illllillihsk 1 H ll B Uhr Mlillihrk IH IJ H And slowly he received from her the story of his life of the congenital disease that had destroyed lirst the growth of his mind and then of his body and was now slowly weakening bofth. And the story of her poverty and hard- ship and the blight o-f the World's crime that had come over her, wove itself into the other story so that the good doctor knew them both, "Mary," he said as she finished and he spoke calmly, a little sadly. "lX'la1'y, l wish l could say the little' brother would be healed, mind and body. A long time ago if some one had known he 'could have been perhaps but now-Mary did you ever hear of the good Doctor, He eoruld heal all sorts of diseases, if we' only had him here now." "But can't we get him or does it cost too much?" asked the Simple minded girl. "Yes, Mary, we can get l-lim. Listen, child," and he told that wonderful story of Him who came te heal and save mankind. "Only God 'can cure him now and he wants to, but in order that l-le may, Charley must leave you-Mary, do ' ou realize what I mean?" "Yes, oh yes," and her lip trembled piteously. "I see, I see. You mean he is going to die." "No, let us not call it death." He has never lived," he added to himself. "He is only going where God will make him strong and well, and may God pity us who are still sick." "Oh, Doctor do you mean-? Will he really be like 180 other folks then? Only l ean't ever see him. 'But T can die too, maybe. Do you know that when l came up here tonight and heard the noise I thought Charley was dead. I thought God was bad, but he really is good, isn't he? Maybe he wasn't to blame for the soldiers, either, or Ra- ehel's baby. Oh, Doctor I'm awfully thankful to you- and to God" she added as ah aftefr thofught. Then 'she went to the cot and gazed awefully down upon her sleeping brother. "Charley is going to be cured now," she wliisperecl, half aloud. And she bent and kissed him. in fx ff fo- ik ik Soon after, Charley did go to be under the Great Physi- cian's care. And as he died he said joryfully, assuredly, "I am going to be a rose nowl" And his sayingcon- iirmed her belief in what the doctor had 'told her, for the rose was to her as it is to us-a symbol of beauty and full- ness of life. For tihe few years that were left her, she went back again into the merciless stream of human en- deavor. The horror of this worldg its blight, its incom- pleteness, 'its tragedies--oh, the grimness of its common tragedies-no longer jarred upon her patient soul, for she had learned that behind it all was God the healer, and she believed that He was trying to make all things right, and that sometime I-le would make them right, even as Ifle had done for herself and her brother. And she was satisfied. --William Banlill.

A. The excitement of the newness of it is over, and it has set- tled down to a steady course of putting our athletics on a sound basis. The past year was not marked by any record-'breaking teams, and yet they were by no means below the standard. About as many contests were lost as won. But is the prime motive of our Association to win games? No! It is Iirst to develop the physical side of our student body. and, then, to win by honorable methods if -we can, and if we cannot, to l-ose honorably. The class of tiransitory students which frequently characterized our teams during the earlier years of our history, have entirely disappeared. and the personnel of the teams is now conlined more nearly to regular students. lly playing together foir a season or t'wo they come to know theiability of each other and to develop team work, which cannot be obtained from a bunch who are strangers to each other, at the beginning of a season. ln a Iinancial way the Association has done remarka- ably well. lfrom this point of view the football season was a great success. After some debts which ran over from last year were paid, in addition to the expenses of the fo-o't'ball season, there was a neat sum in the treasury. The basket-ball team, tho not Il paying proposition, was at least self supporting. From the present outlook it seems as if the baseball and 'track teams would take care of themselves, 'The federation of the student organizations was con- tinued this year and has been successful. The student body are stilil agiitating the question of a compulsory ath- letic fee, anid it is hoped that the Board of Managers will grant us this coveted privilege. l know that the world, the great big world VVill never a moment stop To see which dog may be in the fault, But will shout for the dog on top.

NOTI-IER year ha: passed into history and tofu sofi ' lt 'was expected when school opened that Mr. Ashmore would return to coach the team, but it was learned at the last minute that he would not do so. There were thirty candid-ates for the team and no coach. Arrangements were made, however, with Attorney Frank R. Wiley. who played two years. on thte U. of l, team, to take charge of the squad until a regular coach could be secured. About October lst President Ta.ylor announced that James C. lilder, of Missouri State Normatl'School at Catpe Girardeau. had been secured. lXfl+r. lilder is a graduate of Tarkio College. and has taken special work in physical culture at Yale, and at the Geneva Summer Conference, Lake Geneva, Wiscoiisiti. Ile came to us with thle reputation of a man who had the ability to organize things in a systematic way. l-le has proven this beyond a doubt, for the Association was never in a better financial condition, Mr. lilder arrived in, Deca- tur about October lst and immediately took charge of the squad. which Mr. Wiley had gotten into condition and started on signal practice. I The season opened on October 5th by a game with Normal. There was not a Millikin rooter who doubted for an instant that Normal would go home minus their scalp. But instead of this they went home with Millikin's scalp dangling from their belt. It was a case of over-conti- Iidence that lose the game for Millikin. The score was 6-0, made on a blocked punt. near Nlillikin's goal line. After this defeat the team awoke to the fact that they were deficient somewhere. They returned to practice with renewed vim and vigor, determined to strengthen their wea'k points. ln the game with Rosea week later. a decided improvement was shown, both on offense and defense. Rfosc was lucky that she was not beaten worse than 2-0. The score was made when Wilsliii returned a punt and a Rose player, who caught it. was forced over his own goal line. Then followed a victory, 10-0 over XVesleyan,, and a tie game 0-0 with Shurtleff. The tirst was an easy victory, and if the Iield had been in good condition it is quite likely we would have won from Shurt'lef'f. Wlien the DePauw game ended 5-0 it was quite evident that Miltlikin were lacking in olTense. The defense was good enough, but we could not make long enough gains. The DePauw game was a hard one. and every man fought his best from the time the whistle blew. until the referee declared the game over. Th Lombard game on the 16th of November proved Millikin's Vtfaeerloo. At the beginning of the game it Uh: illllillihrk 1 HUB Uhr millihtk 1 911 B looked as if it was a walk-away for Millikin. But in the second half the had luck started when Pease had his ankle broken. This somewhat disheartenecl tl1e team, but they went to pieces when Markwell had a tooth knocked out, and Bell was knocked senseless. Lombard scored three touch-clowns. lt was a sorrowful-looking bunch that journeyed back to Decatur that night. One week later the team traveled over the same road to play Monmouth. Two years ago they beat us 35-0, and last year 25-9. This season it was only 5-0. The season closed on Thanksgiving Day by a game with Knox in which Millikin won 10-6. lt was an evenly matched, hard-fought game, and was witnessed by the largest crowd that ever attended a game on Millikin lield. During the season there were more defeats than vic- tories, and yet it is not a record to h-ide with shame, but rather one to be iproud of, considering the difficulties under which we labored. Much credit- is due to the second team for their per- severance in holding together and furnishing practice for the Varsity. The more faithful members were, Dudley, Ellis, Sudbrink, Mills, King, Perry, McCown, Martin, Rey- nolds, Montgomery, Hahn and Gee. Only one member of the team graduates this year, and there is no reason why we should not have an all State Champion team next year. The majority of games on the following schedule should be won for Millikin: October 3-Normal at Decatur October 10-Knox at Galesburg. October 17-VVesleyan at Decatur. October 24-Rose at Terre Haute. October 31-Monmouth at Decatur. November 7-Washington U. at St. Louis. November 14-Lake Forrest at Lake Jorrest. November 26-Shurtleff at Decatur. Ewing Wilson Captaain VVilfson is twenty-one years old, weighs one hundred thirty-tive pounds, and is tive feet ten inches tall. He was a candidate for the team in his freshman year, 1905. He participated in a few games, at a back tield position. The following year he 'was a candidate for quarterback and has held this position since. He is heady, a. hard player, a sure tacklcr, and uuring the last season developed dodging and the stiFE arm to a high de- gree of efficiency. - Frank Markwell Markwell came to ns with a four years High School record, and from the lirst practice it was evident that there was something in him. No one fought harder for a place on thc team th-an he, and he was rewarded by playing the las-t four games. During the Lombard game he had a tooth knocked ont. yet he played the game through. After nursing his sore month for a week he played in the Monmouth game. After Pease was injured he took his place at fulltback. He is twenty-one years old, live feet seven inches tall and weighs one hundred forty-three pounds. IS7 mn, maxim 1 H El H Uhr Millihrk 19118 Verne R.

He is twenty-two years old, .live feet and eleven inches tall. weighs one hundlred fifty-live pounds, and played guard. Leslie Taylor Taylor is another new man with a high school record to back hi-m. He is the youngest man of the team, being seventeen years old, six feet and one inch tall, and weigh- ing one hundred foirty pounds. l-le played right half and is responsible for many yards of the Millikin gains for the past season.

The position was new to him, but he was an apt student and nlled it well until he was injured in the Lombard game. 188 Wil-liam H. Bell "Billy" aippeared on Millikin lleld in the fall of '05. Ile seemed no different from all other scrubs, and had to sfattisfy himself 'as a guard on the scrub team. The following season he broke into the varsity line and since that time be has lJCCll in every game played. lple is best at guard, but during the past season has played at center and tackle. lrle is twenty-two years old, live feet and eight inches tall and weighs one hundred lifty-one pounds. He is a sure, quick, and hard tacklcr, often get- ting through the opposing line and ,breaking up a play before it is under way. On offense he is a tower of strength. Charles Bennett Bennett, who has played right tackle, is live feet and eleven inches tall, twenty-one years old, and weighs one hundred eighty-live pounds. l-lis chief gridiron virtue is his 'weight and the force of his offensive charges. He has been selected by his team-mates to captain ncxt season's team.

He impressed Coach Ashmore so much that he was encouraged to continue the practice, 'and in the be- ginning of the season proved to be ia. wonder at half back. l-le is a clean, hard player, being especially stirong on defensive work. ln the use of the stiff arm he is unex- eelled.

Being twenty years old, live feet six inches tall, weighing one hundred fifty pounds, and endowed with a vigorous and steel-like build he made good at the right end. When he has had more ex- perienee it will be hard to lind a better end. John Johnson John is one of those big, vigorous fellows from the farm, bringing with him hard muscles, and the strength of an ox. lt is doubtless due to those things that he made good at guard. l-le is nineteen years old, six feet tall, and wei-ghs one hundred sixty-seven pounls. This was his first venture in football, and he lacks the experience of a vcte-ran. For him we predict a permanent place on the Nlillikin line. .

He is live feet eleven inches tall and eighteen years old. 1-le came to Miillikin in the fall of i06 and made good at center. Never a better center passed the ball at Millikin. The pfast season he was transferred to left tackle on account of his weight. The position was new to him and he did not play the game he would have . center. William Penhallegon "Penn" is a product of the Decatur High School. He is twenty years old, six feet one inch tall and 'weighs one hundred forty-two pounds. He is the fastest man on the team, and always made a favorable impression on the bleachers, on account of the way in which he got down under punts from his position at left end. Eckersall picked him for a position on the all-state team. Louis Ostrander "Dutch" entered school about the middle of the season and made good during the last three games. He had had some experience on the Decatur High School team, and had the qualifications Cweight one hundred fifty eight pounds, age eighteen, height six fectl for a guard.

But the spirit that characterizes the young blood of America was not lacking a't Mvillikin, and we determined to rise above all difiiculties. The coaching was turned over to Prof. D. W. Morton and Capt-aiin Moeller. There was an abun- dance of as good material as any coach could wish for, and an excellent team was developed. Fate seemed to be fagainst us 'and few games wer won. Several were cancelled on account of wet grounds and E a great slump when it was announced that inclement weather. Several players were injured or sick when needed most. Prospects for the present season are bright. Pierson, Wasem, Hamilton, Davis and I-lackenberg of last year's team are in school, and constitute the nucleus around which to build the new team. lt is quite likely that Pierson will do most of the pitching. Moses and Finney may also break into the Varsity line-up. Sm'ith, a new man, seems to have a lease on first base. Sudbrink and Taylor are both trying for catcher. Wilson, Wilkin, Good, Gee, Davis, McCown and Lehenbauer are candi- dates for outfield positions.

This is an itlcal placcf hut the conditions unrlcr which it was securecl, make it prohihitory for the majority of students.

We hope that hcforc long wc will have a gymnasium huilcling of our own and then wc will bc rcarly to take our place in basketball among our compet- itors in other lines ot' athletics.

The courts were very popular for those of tender emotions, and when the sun began to sink in the western skies knights o-f brown arms and their ladies fair could be seen wending their way toward the shady courts. During the summer tennis received a setback from which it has not yet recovered. The sewer which crossed the campus struck the courts, and as a result they were in no condition for playing last fall. The contractor has repaired the courts, and doubtless with the coming of the spring they will regain their former popularity. Manager VVallace is negotiating some tournaments, and it is quite likely that Millikin will begin her career of inter-collegiate tennis. We believe it will be in keeping with the 'standards set in her other lines of athletics. Glennie Sertinn 202 D tBirl'n Bwrtinn gymnasium work is under the supervision of Miss Mollie Gruebel.

Since that time the growth of this department has been mar- velous, both in regard to the ntrmber of students and the quality of work. The best and latest methods of gymnastic instruction and facilities for practice are efmployed. The course of instruction is so outlined and given as 'to include training in all movements that are of basal importance in the grand tinale, The May-pole Dance of the gymnasium girls. Tcacher's Course in gymnasinnl and ealitsthenics work is offered by the department, and is under the direct sn- pervision of Miss Grubel.

Who knows the trouble he has caused, 'the hearts he has busted, the da-tes he has broken, the classes he has cut, the cussedness he has instigated, the willful and deliberate schemes he has put in the minds of his minions? If it were the policy of this paper to expose men of this stamp, we could easily tind mia-terial among his friends and allies who sit with him on the rostrum of dignity. In this line we might take up t'he record of our ambassador -to Ancient Greece and Egypt, Hon. James D. Rogers, R IJ. 'l'. llc has so far forgotten the prin- ciples of the country he represents, and has absorbed so much of the spirit of the dead, that he often speaks .of Greece and her people. The only man in the cabinet who is known to be free from any suspicion of graft is H. E. Smith, T. W. This is known beyond the shadow of a doubt, because he had no money to purchase a Millidek, and turned the poor book-agent pennilcss from his door. This man, it ought to be remarked, is head of the bureau of internal improve- ments, and receives a compensation greater than some of his fellow officers. A 'bill has just passed Congress that it shall be unlaw- ful for students lu become members of social organiza- 212 tions which do not have a government charter. lt would be well to cal the 'attention of t'he reading public to this law. The restrictions of this law are very severe. No one is allowd under itts provisions to join a church which gives social affairs for its membership, nientbership in the city Y. M. C. A. is 'pro'l1ibi'ted. We realize that there is considerable bcnetit in such a law. Students are liable to become intemperate in their indulgence in religious dissipation, and such a 'thing is highly detrimental to tl1e well-being of the students. Section V, Art. 3 of the laiw says: "Nothing in this law or any section thereof shall be construed to prohibit at- tendance at pool-rooms, or at bar Cby law studentsj, such institutions not being considered social organizations!" A test case is no-w before the supreme court. William Neir, in violation of this law, joined the Hard-Shell Bap- tist Church. llc 'was imme'dia'tely arrested and plead "not guilty." He was convicted and took an appeal to the supreme court. E. lludson, attorney for the plaintiff in error, says that the law will be declared unconstitu- tional , as it is repugnant to that portion of the constitu- tion which grants ev-ery man religious freedom. Chief- justice Mills will' hand down the decision of the higher court in a few days. The decision is looked forward to with interest by 'the common people.
