lt's the awfulest
job we've ever struck-
To get so many pages of any old truck
So many pictures. and so many ads,
So 'many 'write-ups, and so many fads,
So many dollars,
At the iirst of the year we were young and g1'een
Thought it would be the most fun ever seen
To pnint Millideksl
So we gaily sailed in, with a dash and a vim,
Thought we were getting right into the swim,
XfVith never a care for the specter grim
That haunts Millideks.
But now we are drooping, dejected, forloirn.
COh! ye Milidekll
Our faces are haggard, our tempers are worn
VVith the Nillidek.
From the fathomless depths wherein we lie,
We lift up our voiees and feebly ery,
"VVhy on earth did we ever try
"Just look at that calendar! See the date?
A COI1! ye Millidek'D
Another week and it's all too late
For the Millfidek.
So hustle around! Sit up till one,
Grind out verses and jokes by the ton! ,
Forget to eat! lt has to be done
For the Millidek!"
But since we've started, we'll see it through,
Th-ough our brains eongeal with the torture screw
Of the Klillidek.
And when we've Iinished, a marty1"s erown
And a plush-lined seat in the heroes' town
Await us! So banish the feeblest frown!

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
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.

freshman class averaged
from 85 to 90 and are designated as worthy of mention:
W. H. 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
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.

Enoch A. 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
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.

The "St, l'.ouis bridge" over the Sangamon is located
about one mile south of the University, on the main line
of the Wabash Railroad. '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.

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-

llli library of an institution is the hub or pivo-
tal point around which revolve the depart-
ments, or spokes ofthe wheel, as they may be
called. llere is accumulated the stored
wealth of many educated minds for
the purpose of CllllglltCI'lll1g the minds of those
striving to attain, at least, an equal degree of
knowledge. lt is also for the purpose of more
perfectly developing the individual by personal con-
tact with others who frequent the library aml by contact
with the t'houg'hts of broader intellects. 'lflere thelsecker
after knowledge is brought face to face with the latest
information concerning so-me piece otf machinery, some
scientific discovery or invention, or the finding of some
latent genius in the literary world. llc may come to the
library bent upon the pursuit of some persfo-nal hobby or
merely to browse among silent friends. 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.

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-
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
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
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.

OMESTTC Economy has existed since 'the first
human mother sought a shelter for her babe
in the trees of the forest or gathered fruit
to appease its hunger or wrapped some skin
of an animal about it to protect it from the
cold. 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
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.

N order to cover the lield of modern Art edu-
cation, the School of Fine and Applied Arts
has two lines of stndyg the Fine Arts, for
the training of the painter, illustrator or
teacher, and the Applied Arts, embodying
the handicrafts in silver. copper' illlll Clay.
ln accord with the approved systems at present in use
in the Art schools of the country, we have tried to over-
come the idea that the study of Art is a lJilSllmC. i11fCll1l0ll
primarily for copying the work of others and to occupy
leisure moments. 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.

N his inaugural address at Columbia Univer-
sity, President Nicholas Murray Butler
said: "ln these modern days the university
is not apart from the activities of the world,
but in them and of them. 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 names and the

The faculty has grown to ten professors

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'

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
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
ln a school of music properly conducted, pupils have
every advantage which privaltc instruction -oifliers, 'with many
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.

Of quiet trees at twilightg-
A peace on hi-ll, in valley, spangled sheen Uh? ilmillfhlfll
' ' i ' ' IHUH
Of hreflies in the twlllgilti-"
In every treeto-p, rest,
The earth, with quiet blessed,
Soft sinks to sleep, lulled by the still wind's sighing,
As lights are low,
And flickering shadows, 'neath the great oaks lying,
Soft come, and go.
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,
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,
E'er repose, our spirits sealing.
Call-s to rest.

Around thy walls a magic haze
Millikin, old Millikin,
Appears to our adoring gaze,
Millikin, old Millikin.
Then loud and long the' chorus raise
To thee we lift our song of praise,
In these our joyous college days,
Millikin, our- Millikin.
VVe must revere our founder old,
Millikin, old Millikin,
1-Iis heart is of the' purest gold,
Millikin, old Millikin.
I-Iis fame and thine together hold,
And tho we all your praise unfold,
Not half thy glory can be told,
Millikin, our Miillikin.
Oh, Alma Mater, true as steel,
Millikin, old Millikin.
Inspire our hearts with holy zeal,
Millikin, old Millikin.
And may our lives in woe and weal,
Thy teachings ever good reveal,
Dcserving thy approval's seal,
Millikin, our Millikin.

VVe lmve dune, as always during nur stay at Millikin,
mn' best fm' mn' college and fm' our class. Our life at
Blillikin has been pleasant and we have dune our best tw
make it prulltablc, both to ourfclvcs and to others,
farewell appearance, but
before we quite leave the stage it seems
fitting and proper to remind you once 21311111
E are making our
of the fact that '08 is really a most remark-
able class. 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
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.
Profiting by our first year's experience -with the Cl1lSs
of '07 wh-en they took us one by one and dumped us in the
branch of Steven's Creek, the l111Z111g Of the 09 Class 111
our hands was a great success. ln fact, though numbering
only fifty-four, the '08 class showed such a great amount
of energy in their onslaughts upon the 109 class, H1111 the
Faculty put a ban on hazing. 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
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
the year seems crowded with events, and yet it seems
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.
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?

a change! They would not consign the whole school to
failure. No, the- faculty must wait until the fullness of
time! Then came our present Seniors. 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

have their being under hispaternal care. Yes, as he
looked down upon us in Chapel that lirst morning we knew
that his heart would fain cry out what his lips could not,
"Thou art the class!" The ideal had become the real,
cooperation was he1'e at last! A
Thus we CHYIICI what we saw let others tell, how we
conquered is our theme. Our predecessors in the held
offered little molestation. 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. But when this year ushered in our Freshmen, we
1 BU H
saw before us a class of different stamp, one bound to suc-
ceed if ambition eounts for aught, These youthful would-
be wonders dared to rival our fame-and with what
result? We studicdg they studieclg we put forth our best
in all lilies of development that thc school offersg they put
forth theirs. Gur William met their Haroldg we tri-
utntphed, not Hastings but Millikin was ours!
What we, the class of 1909, acknowledged leaders of
the college, are doing here, modesty forbids us to relate.
The records are the best testimony of our scholarship. In
literary societies the .large number of our members and the
part we play, speak louder than any assertions from us.
ln English the classes now study the great American
writersg the classes of the next generation must add to
that list, McGee, our winner in the prize story contest.
The debating club declares the merits of our future poli-
ticians. The Christian associations serve as witnesses of
our religious bent. The fraternal organizations are proof
of the brotherly love we cherish. Even the Athletic Asso-
ciation forgets not our services. No more references will
we give. lt is the part of other classes, not so fearfully
and wonderfully made, to send forth their volleys of eternal
babble. All other glories in our history must remain un-
told. The lips of the oracle are sealed!

NCLE Ned threw another armful of pine knots
upon the fire. 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
"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,
"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

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.
At that moment a DI1l'llCl1l11l'lY 101155 shriek of .
echoed through the valley. Uncle Ned W0lNlCl'Cll If U10
"Ole Indian" was calling his victims. The thought mflflc
him uncomfortable. l-lad not someone on the plantation
died every time the face had been seen? But to-mght
only Young Missus, the children and he were there,-the
"Ole lndian" must be mistaken this time. He felt strange-
ly weak and tired, and his head slipped farther down upon
his h-and. 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

of the years that had passed.

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
"Ole Marster, l'se a-eomin'."

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
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
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
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:

A mighty star is ascending
To its zenith in the skyg
And its living rays are searching
In 'a future that is nigh.
Slow and steady you're advancing
From the pleasant walks of life,
To adorn the faithful armor
And be heroes in the strife.
Fame the barrier stands before you,
And the path is clark as nightg
But by ever pushing onward
You shall gain the stormy height.
Time is but a rushing river,
Labor but the strange device
With which you must ever battle
For the royal crown of life.
Onward then, thou faithful legion
VVrestle with the foes of lifeg
Future years shall yet behold thee
As you conquer every vice.
Let your measure be of service
For the good and truth of many
Let your trust be in the Master-
Led of God from Bethlehem.
I'lonor's page is ever near your
Answer to her endless roll,
And by following her commandments
You shall reach the treasured goal.
When at last your sun is setting
And the strength of youth grows sligh
You shall see across dcath's waters
In a brighter realm of light,
Then the voice of angels heralds you
To the King of all renownedg
You shall see the gift of labor,
And from l-lim receive the crown.

I-Ill freshman was going home, his hat and
umbrella were in the rack above the car
window, his suit-case was under the seat,
and he lay stretched out lazily glancing over
the Decatur Review. 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
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
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. Look at the
football team, baseball team and everything else that was
going, they-what was that the brakeman was calling-
it was home, his own home.

Whether with many or whether with few:
One who will stand for the just and the true,
ln upholding the right, in lighting for the wrong,
What is a friend? It is one who is strong
One who is honest in word and deed,-
Who is willing to work that he may succeed,
Who speaks, with an eye that is steady and clear,
From the mind within,-devoid of fear.
One whose thoughts and actions blend
In earnest endeavor toward one great end,-
Toward character, strong and brave for right,
Which will guide afar as a beacon light
One who will serve by conceding his right
lf to some weaker brother that thing is a blight:-
Who will help save one, just ready to fall:-
For none are perfeetg-Christ saved us all.

As the ev'ning shadows lengthened
at the closing of the day,
And the noisy herds were coming
from the lields across the way,
ln a mansion grand and spacious
sat an old man bowed with care,
And beside him sat his daughter,
gently stroking his gray hair,
For she lowezd her father dearly,
and to ease his growing pain
Was her daily thought and purpose,
but her efforts were in vain.
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.

the broad granite walk, and like a great gray
serpent wound in and out among the wagon-
shops and planing mills that lilled the prison
yard. 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

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 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
"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
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-
"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-

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
"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."
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
The visitors examined the tins and felt of the bales of
"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
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
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.
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
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
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.
1 H Il B
"Why, Harriet," he exclaimed, "what is the matter?"
"Oh," she gasped, "Tommy! Tommy! where is
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
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
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
"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.

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-
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

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.

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
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
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,
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?"-
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
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.

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.

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.
What is the gain of the soldier?
A passion of pain and strife,
The sullen twang of a bulletg
-And this for love and life.
Tell me the fate off the soldierg
He picks up the broken chain,
But the years of hope and promise
Are never his again.
Tell me the grief of the soldierg
A weary step in the gloam
And the trembling eyes of a mother
For the sou that came not home.
What is the way of the soldier?
A cripple' begging breildi
The passing pity of strangers
For whom perchance he bled.
What is the way of the soldier?
A broken form in tears,
Telling of long-dead comrades
To a child that wondering hears.
VVhat was the fate of the soldier?
A grave when life was fairg
A little faded banner
Hid in the dead grass there.
What is the gain of the soldier?
Nay, that I do not knovwg
Tell me the dreams he is dreaming
Beneath the earth and snow.

in the history of the Young Women's Chris-
tian Association. Its work has been ag-
gressive, and there are many visible results,
and innumerable ones which cannot be told
in words. 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
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
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.

fall of 1903, steps were taken to organize a
Y. M. C. A. 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-

T was a cheerless eve in winter,
And the sky was dark and heavy
With the snow-clouds of December,
While the snow-Hakes soft and airy
Drifted downward slow and silent
On the valley, hill and meadow,
In the corn-field and the forest.
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
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-

I'l IVIRIEIN is the truest form of beauty found?
To me, it seemeth not in grandest work
Of artist nor the darling garb of lfarth's
Most wild, most gorgeous scenes in which
She seeks to daze, perhaps benumb the mind.
Nor is it sounded forth by pealing hells,
By master's touch or harp Aeolian,
Nor is its perfume wafted thither by
The breeze that's holrn in balmy lfastcrn fields
Of poppies and the rose, For these were made
For senile races of the Orient
And those fair parasites that thrive in blood
Of the tumultuous working hives of worlds.
But God has planted beauty's shape. for me,

The cherry orehard's almost ruddy glow
As Seen across the fields, and that deep loam,
From which thc dear old father-town arose,
When newly tossed of plow, the blaekbirds pert
A-walking down the furrows after worms,
The willows dipping in the stream that flows
All darkly underneathg the' golden waves
Of oatlields and the cattle on the hills,
The dainty tint of violetg the wealth
Of violet and that glad purity
The earth puts on, fresh from its morning bath.
And what aroma sweeter than the hay,
New mown, or as we tread it under foot?
Or st,-und more musical than elammering hoof
Of work-horse turned to pasture after rainsg
From such as these an inspiration falls,
One finds not in the crowded haunts of me'n,
Amid the elang of hammers, whistles pipe
None knew that love of Nature, awe of God,
llorn in the merry days and still, still nights,
God gave to country-folk and villagers.

HE last olbciail act of the Engineering Society
last year was a revision Oi the organization.
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.

appointments there was a momentary hush
in the conference' room, then excitement
broke loo-se. 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
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. '

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,

glowed softly amid a wealth of gorgeous
clouds into which it was Slowly sinking
deeper, deeper. 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
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
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?
"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
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
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
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."

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
"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
"Oh, Doctor do you mean-? Will he really be like
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
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.

H li spirit of progressiveness which has char-
-, acterizcd The James Millikin University
since she lirst opened her doors, can be
clearly seen in the A. 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
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
'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.

To see which dog may be in the fault,
But will shout for the dog on top.
But for mc, l shall never pause to ask
VVhich dog may be in the right,

For the under dog in the fight.
Millikin has contributed another foot-ball
record to be stored away in :the archives of
time. lt is not what we, one year ago,
hoped it would be, but things a1'c seldom as
we hope they will -beg and if they were we would. without
doubt, soon lose all ambition to strive for the uncertainty
of the future.
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
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
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.
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. -
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

Taylor is another new man with a high school record

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.
Ira J. Pease
Pease won his position on the team during the season
of '06 by his hard work and perseverance. lle played

"Hain," 'the second saeker of the baseball team, put on
a suit one day during the season of 1906, and came out to
practice. 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. He weighs one hundred forty-eight pounds, is
live feet ten inches tall, and nineteen years old. -
llull is another to whom the game of footbfal was new
at the beginninglof the season. 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 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. .
Otis Hill '
Hill is the biggest man .on the team, weighing one hun-
dred ninety-eight pounds. 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 .
"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.
"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

ASEBALL stock of the season of '07 took
Mr. J. N. Ashmore was to sever his connec-
tion wifth the University in order to enter
professional baseball. lt struck conster-
nation to the heart of player and fan alike. 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. A
Manager Baxter has arranged the following schedule:

IIICRIE were no inter-collegiate tournaments
1 last spring, but considerable interest was
manifested by the tennis-loving enthusi-
asts of the student body. 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.

gymnasium work is under the supervision
of Miss Mollie Gruebel. Miss Gruebel is

and gymnasium work in 'thc Decatur Y. W. C. A. She
also conducted private classes, and -has presented before
the people of Decatur the results of her labors with Grade
School Chil'dren worthy of special attention and merit.
lt was in response to a general feeling of a need for
the highest and best physical training for the women of
the.University that, in 1905, the department of calisthenics
and gymnasium was placed on a conlservative basis. 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. Many teachers in the city of

special feature of the lVomen's Department.

we could Iill this paper full of the unparalleled and unex-
ampled frauds which this mian 'has practiced. 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-
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.

VVord has reeehed us from a nayboring metropilus
that 1 of the pcrfessers of our instiitushun of higher larnin
to larn that he 'wuz lendin his ade to the grate cause of
lokel opshun. The report sez that the gentleman pre-
sented a turribly good speaeh on the licker problem. The
dockter is a logical and elear thinker. He is a grate be-
liever in the soeratiek form of argunientation ot' which he
is an absolute master. And while the lieker problem is
a modern 1 and not familiur to one who believes that all
good things wuz killed 'when the Greeks quit
business, the speeker handled it in a nrasterly fashion, lt
wuz full of wit, humor and pathos. The speeker carried
his audience up to the mountain tops of noble sentiment
only to let them drop with a dull siekenin thud into the
valley of humer. After the speakin a eolleeshnn was tuk
fur the doeklter and the munitisunt sum of 31 sents wuz
received. The doekter with eharalcteristiek generosuty
turned the munny over to the banker to be used as an en-N
do-wment for an old batehlers home.

Perliups :Huong these pages you will tind
Some thoughtless jest or foolish lapse of mind.
lf such there be, pray turn the leaf,-
Because no purposed mischief have we doneg
But truth, they say, is oft disguised in fun,
And since we've roasted neurly every one,
Look once signin. And then perhaps you'll sec
Wherein your foilnlcs may amusing be.
But we ure doue. Our best we've given you
To please, and if we'vc helped some, too,
Not all is vain.-Then ring the bell,
Let full the curtain. 'Tis at glad Farewell!
