All over the land of the cotton. And down where the magnolias stand, The fame of our dear alma mater Is ringing- far over the land. Millsaps, Millsaps, Millsaps College for me, for me. Millsaps, Millsaps, Millsaps College for me. Her halls where our memories linger, The friendships there made long ago. The purple and whit? of her banner. Are cherisnea wherever we go. 3. And when in the years vi the future, Fond memory turns to the past, The days that we spent at old Millsaps, Will vet be the brightest at last. . £. I? 20 COLORS: IV kite and Blue.

He has too much religion to l)reach other men ' s sermons, hut the general impression of his au- diences is that religion is all tliat he possesses. Fears that his head will be bald ere he can procure for himself a better half. Bearing a sanctimonious dignity, he moves among his fellow students. He spends a great deal of his time talking to the girls over the tele- phone, and some of them say he has stickability. ice-President Y. M. C.

He has been accused of being an orator, but of some of his speeches it cannot be ascertained whence they come nor whither they go. So forgetful that he sometimes forgets his own name.

CLASS HISTORY Now It came Vj pass in those days as the time drew near when Naughty Seven shculd receive the name of Sen- iors that the instructors of the Colleg ' e Cjuestionecl one another sa ' ing " , " Is it right to detain these students another year, seeing that as Juniors they had greater wisdom than aU the Seniois wh.o before tlieir time departed from tiiese walls? " , nd they .vere greatly per- plexed and sorely troubled. Hut Naughty Seven, when they li. ' ard how the instructors debated among ■them- selves, sent word and said unto tlieni. " Cease from troubling, neither be any longer peri)lexed, but even as the rest have done, likewise permit us to continue our course through Seniordom so that the heathen Junior and Prep, seeing our greatness, may be persuaded to follow in our steps, and in this manner increase the glory of the College. " And when they heard this tli? in- structors were exceeding glad and de- bated among themselves no more ,vhat they should do but even as the members of Naughtv vSe -en admonished, that ;he - did. Now in that year it came to pass that a great hue and cry was raised at ilill- saps over foot-ball, and a decree went forth that all the College should play, both Preps and Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors, and likewise the lortlly Seniors. Now when the news of this decree reached the camp of the Juniors tnere was great rejoicing, for thev were man - in numlier, and in stature they were like Goliath. likewise the Preps and Fresh- men rejoiced with an exceeding great joy, for they had many and strong men. 1-lut when the Seniors heard it they were sad, for they were scholars and thought not of rough games ; also they were few in number and frDUi much study had waxed feeble in -trength. Nevertheless they took counsel among themselves and conversing one with an- other, said, " In great thnigs we have reaped success, in fool-ball we will not fail utterly " And straightway they semi a mes- senger unto the manager of athle ' ics, sa -ing: " Place the Seniors also on your schedule of games, for we too will jilay foot-ball, and we will eat nothing, neith- er will we drink nor sleep until the cliam- pionship cup be safe in our co-ed ' s keeiiing. " I ' .nt when the Juniors heard this they laughed and said. " It is a joke. ' ' Now it happened that the Seniors met fit St upon the gridiron the Sopnoinores and overcame them aiul sent them in shame back to their comrades. I ' ut the Juniors ?nd Preps ' vvho beheld the game mocked the Seniors and said. " It is noth- ing, the Sophomores also are veakl;ngs, and bv chance were they overthrown hy weaklings. " liiit it came to pass that when the Seniors encountered the I ' reps and put them to shame even as they iiad done the Sophomores, there was mucii sui prise for the Preps were a people skided in foot-ball, and their fame had been noised abroad throughout the land, and the peo- ]ile marveled at it, saying, " These Sen- iors play like professionals and not like lucn unaccustomed to the game. " Now as the day drew nigh when the Juniors were to pla}- the Seniors, the Junior Captain, about the eighth or ninth 41 hour ul the evening, sayeth to his fa- ther, " J have a hard Greek lesson. 1 go to read it with a classmate. " And straightway he goeth to the room of Rog- ers, the Psychologist ( the same was the Senior left end), and seeks to frighten him saymg, " You Seniors olay foot-ball but poorly. It was luck that you beat the Preps, the Juniors will treat you oad- ly. Think you that the Senior ends can contend with Adams and Kirkland ; 1 also am a great player and it grieves me to consider how you will fare wlien in the heat of the game 1 strike you. " And straightway upon ending his speech he givetii the horse laugh. But it came to pass that as the Jun- ior Captain maketh this speech there com- eth into the room John, the Senior cen- ter, whose surname is Weems, and he being a good spokesman answered and said, " Cease your vain boasting, have you not read that ' much prme goeth be- fore a fair? Think you that Terrell and jNeill will sleep while your heavy men are striking our ends? Saw you not how Berry and Loch bore themselves against the Preps? ' And though I be a modest man and am accustomed to do great deeds rather than to boast of them, yet verily I say unto you 1 am no babv and in to-morrow ' s game I will butt your cen- ter so high that the birds of the air will nest on his carcass before he return to solid ground, and if after that he sliall strive to hinder my passage througn your line I will toss him so high that the earth ' s gravitation will cease to attract him and he shall become a heavenly body and revolve around the sun. even as the astronomers write is the case with meteors. " Now at this saying the Junior wa; greatly astonished, for being a Junior he was ignorant and knew naught of the teachings of Astronomy and tirerefore imderstood not how this thing could happen. And he departed from theru and went forth into the black and dark jiight still marvelling at the Senior ' s words. And it came to pass that on tne fol- lowing day when the Seniors gathered together to play the Juniors the Jmiiors boasted greatly and sought to guy tiiem and wagged their heads at them saying, " If the Seniors ' voices be like their legs they should sing well, for the} ' nave legs like mocking birds. " But when the game began the Jmiiors were not able to stand before the Sen- iors, but they were driven back even as the chaff before the whirlwind; they were defeated utterly, and great was their shame, so that they became a shaking of the head and a byword to all the Col- lege. And after that day when a Junior meeteth a Senior on the campus he pull- eth his hat over his eyes and shunneth him. Now it came to pass that when the Seniors again played the Juniors the Juniors had rested a long while but the Seniors were bruised and weary from much playing neither did they try very hard, so that on this day they did not prevail against the Juniors. I ' ut when the season endeth and ex- aminations draw nigh the manager of Athletics reckoneth the percentage of the teams and lo ! the Seniors have won. So he inviteth a. great preacher to come from town to the morning chapel, and the preacher came and said many and wise things, both to the Seniors and to the (ithers and with honeyed words he delivered the cup to the Senior co-ed. And great joy prevailed among the Seniors, and that night their co-ed gave a great feast and invited them and they all went and did cat and drink and were merry. Historian. 42 se:n ior class ruorHECY. " O force unseen but not unfelt. How dare you now these words relate, And why, O Muse, when we go out Shall we be forced to meet this faie ? ' ' Calvin Applewhite, the first by name, shall never fill this high estate amid those with whom he comes in contact. We see him as he graduates with honor from his chosen medical institution, and all seems to indicate for him a brilliant fu- ture. Lo ! but Calvin finds, as many other men have done, a vast diflference between the theoretical and the practical. His youthful ambitions fail him, and we rind hmT content with the routine work of a lonely country practice. Day and night he answers !iis official calls, disappointed i ' l the fact that in none of tli«m is he abit to put forth those theories wnich he has in .store. He finds his life ' a burden and his professional duties a never-end- infi experiment. He does not hesitate to prescribe but never knows the disease. Perhaps all of us have been wonder- ing; what shall become of " Fatty " Buck- strom. " Fatty " hails from the pmey woods and back to the piney woods he must go. He often dreams that he shall make a great lawyer and win distinction in the jiolitical life. Personally we thmk him worthy of greatness, but somehow he utterly fails to impress upon the pub- lic his importance. The only case which he successfully presents to a jury duiing bis whole professional career is the one in which he sues fci a divorce from tiie woman he has married. This case, )iow- evcr, was not decided on law and cvi- tknce, but rather on the general appear- ance of the victim. In disappointment we find him, an old man, recurnmg to his native haunts where he is allowed to develop the much-needed physical nian, mourning the fact that few men leceive tiieir just reward in this life. As we dip into the future anJ con- template the real in the life of Jim Eerry, we must say that he shall be successful ii dollars and cents can be a measure of success. Jim has ever been endowed with, wonderful business qualities. This natural tact leads him into the coninier- cir! life. From a small beginning he early climbs to the top. He easily solves the problems of modern commercialism, aiul even finds an entrance into the world of " high finance. " In his old age, with his millions about him. he throws aside his complex business thoughts, and la- n.ents the fact that he has taken buch a narrow view of life. He has figured in dollars and cents, he has thought in dol- lars and cents, his life can only be ex- pressed in dollars and cents — a money ni;icliine. He passes from us with tlie tl ' .ought that what a man does is but the expression of what he is. We find Bright in after years still possessed with the power to reason witli- oui a follower, neither has he lost the unliendable dignity which is so charac- teristic of the man. He is faithful to 43 lii chosen profession and devotes his life to the ministry, lint unfortunately he dees not learn that the greatest life is the siin])lest life, that the greatest ser- mon is the simplest sermcm. His foun- tain of big words never fails to flow. His complexity is too great for his au- dience, and they go from him wonder- ing and guessing if this man does not live out of his proper age, but they aie content with the lessons of earnestne. s and profundity which he so deeply im- presses. Bullock has displayed wonderful pow- ers for accjuiring and retaining know i- edge. He enters the fields of activity tu which he so earnestly aspired and is con- tent to be called a teacher. If knowl- edge of the subject was the only iv- cjuirement he shall be eminently success- ful If all lessons could be learned by al ' sorption we might well envy tho.-,e entrusted to his care. But him, too. we find deficient. He fails to impart what he knows. He is not able to give ex- pression to those great truths that h ' . ' has in store. Doomed with the law that. " A thought unexpressed is a thougiu that shall die, " he retires from this fiei ' . to spend his life alone, enjoying himself all by himself in his own original way. " Johnnie " Carlton is slow to take on manhood. With a boyish look and a boy- ish, nature he passes through this life, all along this arduous way he tries to assume a manlv bearing. He was old enough to be a Senior, but somehow he could not look like one. His preppy ways fail to indicate that he belonged to the SeniC ' - state. During life he tries many projects but in none of them does he attain ary marked success. He gives us an exam- ple of an innocent failure and teaches us the lesson that one need not hope to develop into what he not by nature. We follow " Jack " Frost as he contin- uall} ' ].)ractices those habits which n.. ' formed in College. For six years an act- ive member of the " Buttinsky " Club, he proves its most loyal promoter, and even ti;es to impress upon the world the im- portance of its principles. He later ue- comes a composer and wins distinction as a vocalist. His masterpiece, " But- tinsky, " gives to the world in an attract- ive form the great principles for wdiich he lives. This piece he gladly renders at every opportunity granted him. His wide-spread rendering of his cherished product, soon awikes the world to knov that as time flies changes come, and that to " fnitt in " is better than to be prim and formal. We now turn to the member of our class who never decides things. He lea -es College well equipoed, but instead o ' entering direcily some special line of work, we find him weighing the several vocatious in his fruitless attempt to de- cide to which one he shall give his tal- ents. He teaches school — perhaps as a stepping-stone to something higher, or more likely that he may have time for further thoughts upon his life work. He becomes a journalist but is slill unde- cided and devotes his last and only thoughtful days to the writing of a booic which is but the expression of his life This is entitled " Indecision " and dedi- cated to the class of 1907 over thiT sig- nature of John W. Loch. James A. McKee, M.A., B.A., Miil- sapr. College. If the number of degree-j and the length of time spent at College count for anything he will easily outstrip all the other members of his class. They call him " parson, " but he will never need a parsonage. He is a hard student, but never learns the art of study. His ser- mons are dry and uninteresting and prove a welcome cure for insomnia. He never reaches the main point because of his lengthy discussions of details. He will never be great because he is better fitted for the smaller things of life. He never tells her that he loves her because he is busy mapping out his minor feel- ings. 44 Old -Red " Neill ' s girlish giggle shall never fail him. Jolly and good-natured, with just enough seriousness to over- balance his clumsy carelessness, ne spends many years just on the inside of the ragged edge. Careless about his pro ■ fession he does nothing for many yeais. At last he awakes to the fact that he is destined to be a physician. He at once sets about to regain lost time, when old Dame Carelessness steps in and offers him a poor pair of pill-bags and a dozen doses of drugs, tmd thus equipped he goes forth giving calomel for ston; bruises and epsom salts for earache. Carelessness comes and cuts the cord ana cures " Red " of callous cares. Sam Osborne is stubby in lonn and stubby by nature. The very essence of indifterence. Ide has many opportunities to render himself useful, but to none of them does he attach importance. hat little he accomplishes is accomplished mere by friendly chance than by per- sonal efforts. For many years he leads this easy, indifferent life, never exerting himself to grasp a proposition or take advantage of an opportunity, lie is forced to Ijecome a store-keeper, but for lack of effort is never equal to the great- est problems of modern commercialism. He never wins favor with the girls bo- cause his time is spent in admiring him- self. The world is h.ard on Pierce. Uncle Sam does not love him because ne has deserted his place of birth. England fails to honor his citizenship Because he was born under the Stars and Stripes. Honduras does not know him as a cit- izen, but grants him the privilege to plant cocoanuts and har ' est bananas. " A man without a country, " he sets o:;t in his efforts to realize the fulfillment of his college dreams. A world empire is foimed with Pierce as emperor. Onc- the world was hard on him, but now the tide has changed and the world must do him homage. With few firmly-fixed feelings, ] Iii-: Ridgeway finds a focus for her funny phase of life in hei foolish fancy. She fjmcies first of all that furrows formed b_ farmers and the further toils which f j!lo v shall fail to feed her funny na- ture. Ui course she fails to find iicr iv- ture husband in the faithful farmer boy. She further fancies that the fullesc field for her and those fitful forces which so fully fill her nature may be found m field of fiction. Five and fifty years she labors, forming plots and framing pict- ures. Failing fully fame to find amid her former fancies, she finally fancies that she will spend her future days lu an effort to find the fame and fortune of the one and fifteen members of her faithful class. She only found the former farmer. Rogers thinks he is destined to be a banker. Often has he dreameil of the time when he should be honored wilii the presidency of one of those great financial institutions. Idis ambitions run av ay from his powers. He could fly to a star as easily as he could make a success of banking. Finally convinced that he has been a failure as a banker he begins the life for whicii !ie is best suited, and reaps many noble harvests from his faithful cultivation of the soii. Grover Terrell is the next. " e re- g;et to make reference to him. Pie pic- serts to us that type of man who gives general disappointment. Millsaps was hesitant to receive him and most sadlv disappointed did she turn him out to disappoint the world. He is one of pro- portion somewhere but defies mankind tc find where it is. He disappoints his friends when he tells them of wonder- ful chemical discoveries that he is going to make, and proceeds to singe his eye- brows in his attempt to see if gunpowder will support combustion. He spends many, many years in those scientific in- vestigations and finally blesses the world bv discovering the chemical properties of KiS2. From the class of 1907 goes forth 45 one of Falstaffian proportions, to whom none of the things that he learned in College sticks except his winning ways, his charming chat, his jolly jokes and flabby fat. He goes to a little country town ten miles from any railroad, where he can always be found when new light is wanted on some base-ball subject. He has more money and less brass than any man in his class. Out in that little town of the wilderness, he is content to spend h ' s long life tickling the fancy of all who know him, by his cheerful chuckle when he drops his chubby chin. John Weems will be surprised when the only girl he ever loved awakes him to the lolly of matrimony and to the fate of a bachelor. Why " Old Blaze " Williams worked so hard on his man speeches will never cease to be a wonder to those with whom lie i • acquainted. Wirt wanted to become a lawyer, and became bald-headed in the attempt to equip himself for this profes- sion. He finds that his love for the coun- try and the attractions of farm life are too strong for him to resist. He seems to enjoy farming, but his impractical methods are the source of much laughter among his jolly neighbors. In a scien- tific attempt to revolutionize the art of imile shearing, he was unconsciously hurled into oblivion by the more scientific manner in which " Old Maud " had learn- ed to use her only weapon of defense. The Prophet. 46 A RETROSPECT. We ' ve been at College now some time, for sure. We know the ins and outs of College life, Its ups and downs, its joys and pleasures, too, Because we ' ve been at scho(;)l for quite a while. We came here strangers, timid, rough, unknown — Mere boys who ne " er had wise nor earnest thought Nor spoke except to say some foolish word. The folks, who saw those boys four years ago, Who laughed because their pants were too short — In other words, because of city dress And city manners knew they naught at all. Also because there were a score or more Of things that modern city folks do use Of which they had not even heard before — Those folks, I say, thought not what dormant strength There lay behind that stupid stare, unwaked. They little thought the campus e ' er would mourn Because their faces were not seen again ; That they would bring old Millsaps fame and honor, , nd to the college heart endear themselves. But of all that we ' ve done and more besides. We will not tell you all — ' twould take too long — ' Bout how the laundry wagim we did paint One night, and take doc ' s buggy all apart. If you but knew the record black of deeds We ' ve done I think you ' d say that we were bad. We ' re not, for know the saw, " Boys will be boys. " I bet you would do as bad or worse than we If you but had the chance or were not ' fraid. Now listen ! We have fooled the Profs or else They are good actors, for they say this class Of all is best and seem to speak the truth. They think they know us boys, alas ! poor dears. We can but love them though. We ' ve found them men 47 Both ood ami true, net oyres as first we thought; We were afraid of them when we were " new. " But that ' s all past and gone ; we worried them ; ' e ragged them too. then busted on top of that ! We got our share of honors, perhaps you know. We care no longer sucu small things to seek, We go in now for only great big things. For, don ' t you know, our learning we have got. Enough of grits and gravy, so-called steak And other stuffs alike, we say, we ' ve had. We bid adieu to base-Mil field, to gym, To nearly every sport we here have played. Of foot-ball games pciiiaps we ' ve won our last — Because we ' ve got our education now. But may we cherish jtill the meni ' ries dear Of college life, of pranks, of fears and scrapes And jokes which added zest to our careers, And often may we meet in these old haunts. Nor may our faces ever strange become To those that saw and knew us here in school. But we are through, and, since we needs must go. To others leave we all our dog-eared books. We hope some help to them wall be those lines We interspersed adown their thumb-marked leaves — They represent hard hours of toil by us. Others may whittle upon our old boards And chew on our old cow, take our zeros. Oh dear! I wonder if they 11 take our girls? May they with pleasure walk or ride along Until at last they too. ITke us, can say. " We ' re done with Alath and Greek, with Latin too. The sciences those we " ve tried. The weary way Along a stale old college course we ' ve trod. " 48 COLORS: Black and Crimson.

In SL ' i)tcinber, 1904, th M ' e appeared on th( campus a band ot aspirmg youths, unknown to the outside as well as to the College world and to each other, ;ixty- six ir. number, " verdant " yet " all on stuciy bent. " While the college men were joyously greeting each other with hearty grips these homesick individuals found themselves objects of curious scrutiny. It was indeed " with fear and trembling " that they passed through t.ie horrors of entrance examinations. ' I hey gazed in awe upon the august faces now grown so familiar. Their fear was to a great degree re- moved after the Y. M. C. A. reception, where they became acquainted with their college mates. Thev found that ' here were " Preps " actuallv lower than tliey, and were thrilled with an inexpressible sensation of joy when they were first caliec ' " College men. " This was the beginning of the Class of 1908. Our name: were placed upon the rolls of all the various college organizations, and v; took active part in all the different phases of college life. We were equally diligent whether on the athletic fifld or tre;iding on foot (or riding?) over the rocky ways of Cicero and Xenophon, or responding in " Alalh " to the call: " The following will please go to the b )ar(l. " We really made a bright record in that first year that now seems so long, long ago. When we returned as " Sophs, " al- thorigh some had dropped out and we had lost our only " co-ed " We were not devoid of class spirit, Init felt almo. t equal to the Seniors. I lowever, when we began to battle with sines anil cosines and when we heard the answer: " fhat ' very, very bad, " as the Latin professor reached for his grade book, we began to realize that we were not altogether sages, but still had something to iearn. As for oratory, one would think that Demosthenes had been resurrected if he chanced to listen to the stream of Soph- omcric eloquence as it poured -forth in licuntiful profusion in June, 1900. Sure- 1 - there are great statesmen, yea, tven. I ' residents in embryo for future gener- ation among the members of ihis noble Class. September, " oC, witnessed the entry of thj Class of 1908 upon an era of almost ' unprecedented ( ?) success. Although our number is not more than iialf what it v. ' as just two years ago, those of us who remain are proud of our Class and have high ideals for it. We indeed count ourselves fortunate to be honored with the membership of a " co-ed " once more. The present finds Juniors at the head in almost every department — as Literary Society presidents and anniversarians, Commencement debaters. President of Athletic Association and officers and teachers of Y. M. C. A. While thus we ha e been busy in the literary line we have not neglected athletics. In foot- ball we ])ushed the Seniors for the cham- pionship. The champion basket - ball team at Ruston, Louisiana, in December was composed principally of members of Oiiv Class, and we also claimed the Class basket-ball pennant. Now that the base- " ball season is on hand, we feel sure that the Class of ' oS will win her share of honors on the diamond, liut our great- est honor is yet unmentioned. The I ' ac- ulty has selected a member of our Class tj represent the College in the State In- ter-collegiate (Jratorical Contest, which lakes place at Columbns in May. This is the highest honor given by ttie Col- lege, and is usually claimed by a Senior. Realizing that it would take books to write a complete histor)-, I have only made brief mention of a few of the many laurels won by this illustrious Class. Al- though the tasks set for us have not al- ways been performed and the lessons to be learned have too often been neglected, yei ' ali of us realizing that our education lies not wholly in books, should truly say that from our College life we: obtain a far deeper insight into the future than could ever have been our share had not our alma mater guided us through all thes!. years : and to all in the memory of the future the time will be a pleasant reach upon the varied distance of life ' s lorig ' pathway.

To the average student of Geography, it i a matter of Httle consequence where the average stream rises or whither it ih- rects its course, but wlien it com s to sucli great streams as the -Mississippi or the Amazon, it is (|uite different. I:s CGinse and source are alike viagerly soiight. it is thus with the student of history. Tlie ordinary institution chal- lenges no especial attention, but when it comes to a great organization like t;ie class of ' 09, the admiring multitudes de- mand all the details of its histor}- — no matter how trivial they may be. I realize that in order to write a true am! complete history, it is necessai} ' to giy the date of birth, h.ome and a bri.f sketch of the life of the character treated. It had been my purpose to give these de- tails, but scarcely had I begun compiling my data before 1 discovered that our fair re]3resentatives in Section I. were, with- out exception. Hearing the age of si. teen. Fearing that the ancient proverb " that an old head is wisdom ' s storehouse ' might cause my recital of our unexcelled ability to be looked upon with a slight degree of suspicion, I have concluded to deprive the reader of the knowledge that several members of our most illustrious class are now upon the threshold of — their sixteenth summer. Then too. some say that we have been so constant!} ' in the limelight and that the world has Vv ' atched our course with so much enthu- siasm that our history need not be wriL- ten in detail. ' e are veritable giants in Math an ' .! the Classics. Sucli sharks are we that it is rumored tliat several of our nuniljer Avill be " lield over " another year in order tliat we may pilot the coming class over the rougli and rugged journe- - und, if p .;.sib!e, make clear to them some of tlie mysteries of the parabola. ' hile we have been unusually earnest in tlie |)ursuit of literary activities, we have ]3_ - no means neglected athletics. We have played all the games — foot- ball, base-ball, basket-ball and tennis — very successfully. So successfid were we in foot-ball that someone has wisely likeneil the charge of our enemies of the gridiron to that of the Light Brigade. Some, for whom foot - ball was too rough, have engaged in the less strenu- ous sport of pony riding, ar wliich they have become very skilful, and it would indeed Ije hard to find a professional eouestrian of the ring whose " stunts " could perplex them. Mien we returned this year nianv of ouv members had either fallen by the iayside or cast their lot in another clime, but our ranks were replenished vvith good and loyal members. " e have labored earnestly and have alreadv begun to look forward to the greatest event of the ses- sion Commencement. ' e are preparing ou ' - speeches, and when the day for their delivery rolls around, the flood gates of oratory will be raised. It is truly a great class. And I doubt not in the process of time it shall gain in lustre until some bright numlDer Of the constellation shall become the guid- ing star of all those who desire eminence in his profession. However, I shall leave this fragment to be completed by the Historian of the frlin e — ncA-er doubting that high upon ih, ' scroll (if fame there is a place secured t ' l tlie class of ' o ). 59 CIECUMSTANCES ALTER CASES. " Luc ' , I am ver - inucli huit that you (lirl ii.- ' " Well, niuther, even Jennie Ray went with us, and ( u kiK.iw she is the very bes: girl in unr Class. We didn t think it as so very bad to run otf. This is our last session at this Sehool, and then everybody plays pranks on the first of April. " " That does not exeuse you in the least, my daughter. If ou had refuse(i to go possibly you might have been tlu means of keeping the whole Class. Then after all, what fun did you find in it : " " Lots, mother; we had a delightful limch in the park, and then it was fun to think how eheap Prot. Smith must ha e felt when he found us all gone. Don ' t you think he was surprised? " " No more than I am, Luey. 1 want you to go to your room and think quiet- ly over this matter, and I am sure you will feel very difTerently about it. You must apologize to Prof. Smith in the morning, and if you are not really sbriy it will all be of no use. Sit there until I call you. " Feeling very miserable, I went to my room and stood by the wnidovv. If Prof. Sniith had come along, I could nave truly told him that I was sorry, for althougli I could see no harm in it, I then felt that I must have done wrong or mother v culd not have taken it so seriouslv. Suddenly I was aroused from my tlioughts by the rins:ine of the door bell. Then in a few minutes I heard r.iother exclaim, " Why ! Alice Green ! Where on earth did you come from ? How glad I am to see you ! You haven ' t changed a bit, vou are the same little Alice vou used to be. " S(jnn they were seated in the roou! just in front of mine, and I learned that Alice Green was mother ' s old col- lege chum, who)n she had not seen in eighteen years. My room was separated from tlieirs only by folding doors, and it happened that they were slightly ajar. So as moth- er liad told me to sit there, I could not but hear their conversation. They talked of what had hapjjened since they had seen each other, of their families and such things, but soon their conversation drifted to their oul college ' days. " Alice, " said mother, " you don ' t know how the Class missed )-ou. We were all so sorry that you did not re- turn after the holidays. What fun you did miss ! J don ' t think a Senior class ever had better times than we did. " " 1 was greatly disappointed when 1 found that I could not graduate with my Class, but mother ' s health was failing so rapidly, I felt it my duty to remain at home. I have often thought of those good times we had. Tell me about the rest of the session. Did you have mrny moie of those jolly feasts? " " Alice, " said mother, " I almost get young again when I think of those c ' ays. Indeed we did, one especially. You re- member the old Art Room where cdl of our spreads were laid? " " ■Yes : could anyone ever forget hav- ing to climb those four flights of stairs every day? " " Well, eight of us girls had planned a feast for a certain night, and in some wav the Juniors heard of it. They were al ays trying to get ahead of us, and 6o soon we knew that there was to be an- other feast in the Art Room that night. " After that we racked our Drains to find some way to keep them from (jut- doing us. At last Nellie Jenkins liit up- on a plan that suited exactly. You re- member all of those little closets around the walls, where our Art Materials were kept? That night we waited until we knew it was almost time for the Janiors to go up, then we, wrapped in sheets con- cealed ourselves in the closets. " Presently we heard the door being- opened very cautiously, and silentl) ' they began to prepare their feast. Occ ision- ally we heard someone say something about the Seniors having to give up their feast From our watch through the key- hole we saw them all sit down reavly to begin. Then as we had before planned, wlicn one girl turned her door knob, each did the same, and all at once eignt white figures appeared on all sides. Vou ought to have heard the screams, and seen the expression on their faces as they dashed out of that room. " We bolted the door, and it is u.-ciess to tell you we enjoyed their uut. ' .isted spread. " And Alice, do you remember Jim Stone, who was lary Crane ' s old stand- by, and how they used to get notes to each other? I often wonder that nrore of us didn ' t get caught up with. Seems to me that anyone would have known that boys didn ' t go walking e -er ' after- noon just when we did fiir notiiing. They always knew so easily when we had a note for them, and I Vealh- tnink it was wonderful how notes got to their right owners, when we gave them to just any boy we happened to meet. " They seemed to have read the notes as pay for delivering them, and Jim soon tired of that. So they determined to try another plan. Alary promised to let the note down from her window by a cord, whenever lie came for it. Thi.s ' al- so brought with it a problem, how was Afar_ - to know when he came? It was impossible to dodge the night watches at any set time. jMary seemed always able to solve these problems, so she told Jim that she would tie the cord to her little bell, and in this way he could wake her. " This seemed very plausible to Jim, 1nit Alary still had troubles, for she knew that it would take more than the ringing of a little bell to wake her. And how do on suppose she managed? Well, that n.ight instead of tying the string to the bill she tied it to her toe, and soon went soundly to sleep. " How long she had slept :Mary never knew, but she was awakened by a slight l)ull of the string. As Jim did not hear the bell, he gave the cord a still harder pull, then still not hearing a sound he gave it a most awful jerk. " Oh. what agony Mary endured, but she suppressed her feelings and quietly let down the letter. All the rest of that night she tossed, unable to again close her eyes, and early the next morning Dr. I ihnson was called in to see a dislocated toe. For many days she was constantly ren:inded of it by the loose slipper which she was forced to wear. Afterwards poor lin had to submit to reading second- iiar.ded letters. " . nd the night Air. Delaney called! 1 had almost forgotten about it. Hnw I eve,- did it I don ' t know, but 1 did. Mr. Delanev was John ' s old friend who ' Hap- pened to pass through on his way to Ohio. Jcihn wanted him to call, so T de- cided to trv to get permission. oii re- iiKUiljcr lidw hard it was while you were there, and towards the close of the ses- si.in they made a rule that all permissions nir.s: begotten from President Chambers. " It happened that John had sent me a liox of candy that afternoon, so this ga e me an idea. I knew if I wrote a riote asking to call. President wouM im- mediately say. " Xo, " so I just wrote a f.=w lines in a large masculine hand on til? wrapping of the box, saying tliat he was ill town and hoped to see nie. Then I signed J. L. Delaney " s name to it. ■■ ' ith this I went to President Ciiam- ber ' s office. To my surprise, wlien he had finished reading tlie lines, he looked up very pleasantly and said, ' Is he an old friend of yours from home? " Of course I had to boldly say ' Yes. ' and then President told me that he really saw no objections, but catitioned nie to remem- ber the hour. " With President Chambers " permis- sion 1 felt that my way was indeed clear, but that night something happened to change my mind. Alice, I had never seen jNlr. Delaney, all on earth that I knew about him was that he was John ' s friend and was considered very hand- some. To my surprise, when I reached the parlor door, there sat President Chambers and three strange young men, all engaged in a conversation. " Miat could I do? I had told Pres- ident that he was an old friend and now I must prove it. Of course I hesitated, for I had to think, and then too, I thought that someone might call his name. But just as I stopped, liss Kaven came running down the stairs and said, " Go on in, Anna, you look lovely to- night. Don ' t stop, for you are alreadv late. ' " I knew that I must jnit on a bold face and try my luck. John had said that he was handsome, so I just picked out the handsomest man of all and rushetl up to him. Alice, I even called him bv his given name and told him he had not changed any since we used to go to school together in that little red school- house by the lane. At first he looked a little surprised, but by the time I had fin- ished with my lengthy greeting, he saw my position and startled me by asking if that was the same old black dress I used to wear, and why I persisted in wearing a red rose in my hair. Truly I had settled on the right man, aua dfter introducing him to President Chaniners, e sat down to talk of old folks at home. " Alice, would you believe that the President and those gentlemen sat in the parlor the entire evening, and although thej seemed very much interested in their own conversation I knew full well that the President heard every word we said. Once especially, just as Air. De- laney asked me if I had heard that led Payne and Alary Sullivan were married, I saw the President listening, so I said, ' What, that great tall woman and that ti.Tv little man? ' Then the President and all the others stopped to laugh. We talked on this way continually, making everybody laugh until I heard the stroke 01 ten. and Air. Delaney, apparently very reluctantly, took his departure. " C)n my way to breakfast the next morning I met President Chambers and he stopped me, saying ' Anna, you seem to have enjoyed your friend ' s visit very much last night. Whenever an old friend like him is in town. I have no objection to his calling. ' " Night alone forced mother ' s friend to leave, and when mother came into my room, I had lighted the lamp. Her face was beaming as she said, " Lucy, m - old room-mate at Harding has ' pent the afternoon with me, and you don ' t knov ' what a pleasant time we iiave bad. " ' " Yes, mother. " I said, " don ' t Niink thrt I was eavesdropping, for I would not do so for anything, but you remem- ber you told me to sit here quietly until you called me. so I could not keep fsom Ilea ring and from thinking how times b.ave changed since you were a girl.

We eould easdy be dis- tinguished, for we were standing about with our hands in our pockets and re- garding the old students with a mixture of awe and bewilderment. How we longed for companionship in this lonely hour. It seemed that the element had formed a combination with other things to make us homesick, for it had been raining almost incessantly in torrents since our arrival in Jackson. By this tim? we were feeling our first attack of homesickness. This feeling of loneliness remained with us until we had formed acquiiintances among the boys and had settled down to work. It was not long before we began to feel proud of our Class and to compli- ment ourselves that we were genuine Freshmen — not green ones, for this color had been used by the Class that preceded us and was therefore unknown in our Class. The Seniors tried to humiliate us by calling us " ignoramuses " and other, n.imes, the meaning of which we could not entirely comprehend. Yet our hopes revived when we found that there were two classes below us, the " Preps. " We met in due time and elected Class officers, selected our colors, ordered Class hats and adapted a motto which we have always stood by : " Let the co-eds do the wcik. " This meeting seemed to have done more for promoting Class spirit than anything else. Since that time the spirit of the Class of ' 10 has been grow- ing every day. We have a right to take pride in our Class for a great many rea- so ' .is. Each one of the co-eds is as loyal a supporter of the Freshman Class as our most brawny athlete or our most ie: ' ent orator. This is clearly shown by ihe tact that they always come (jut and ' loot ' when the team plays any ot the thei Class teams, in numbers we sur- pass any other Class in College, there being seventy-three of us who hope to wear caps and gowns in 1910; m debate and oratory we are ever pi-e-eminent, our men being leading lights in both the Lit- eral y Societies. Besides this we are well represented in the publications ol the Collegian. In Athletics such names as Jones, Adams. Haley, Clark and others will live forever in the annals of the College. We have represemtatives in every kind of out-door sport. In " gym " work we are prominent : one of our members has eliarge of the gymnasium, and his pro- ficiency is recognized by all. Our foot- ball team competed successfully with the ' other Class teams. When the base-ball se.

In basket-ball our team did some very ef- fective work. At the close of the series the " gentle and simple Preps, " the " gay 30ung Sophomores " and " grand old Seniors " had all been laid quietly down to rest " in the shade of the old apple tiee ' h} the " verdant Freshmen " who -ere only suqiassed In ' the " jolh ' Jun- iors. ' J Iay each one return to College next session as a Sophomore to maintain the high standard which has been set by our Clasr during the past session. And when the Class of ' 10 has made its last appear- ance on the rostrum of Millsaps College r.iay there be no other Class to surpass the splendid record made by them. 08 DEAR OLD SKULE. Dear old skule, The sparrows sing above you, Dear old skule ; They speak of how I love you, And Oh, what a fib they " tell! For I hate to hear your bell That summons us to class-room To hear pronounced our last doom, For Monday morning lessons Don ' t cause a flow of blessin ' s On our old skule, dear old skule. Dear old skule. Bushes glow along the walk, Dear old skule. Where we used to love to talk Of the lessons we had not And the lectures ne ' er forgot. Of the latest at the show And the places where we ' d go If we were not then at skule Under teacher ' s strictest rule In our old skule, dear old skule. Dear old skule, The trees so green around you, Dear old skule ; They look as if they ' d found you Manv a long year before In that spot where now your door Causes often woeful thoughts Of the zeros and the naughts Given wear}- pupils there. Causing them so much despair In our old skule, dear old skule. 69 Dear old skule, The pupils gone above you, Dear old skule, Surely once thev didn ' t love you, Or else they didn ' t understand, Though thev loved their native land Thev didn ' t have to love their skule With its hard and cruel rule. Distance, ' t is, enchants the view; Some dav I may love you, too, jNIv own old skule, dear old skule. Dear old skule, When this class at last is gone, Dear old skule. Clover blossoms in your lawn Still will be as green and white As I know they are to-night; In the shadow of the trees There ' 11 be nothing but the bees To regret we ' ve gone away And wish us back again some day To our old skule, dear old skule. Dear old skule. When we have graduated, Dear old skule, From duties always hated. On this final happy night, When the future seems so bright, Filled with joys and sweet delight. And we know that we have quite Gone beyond our former wavs. We ' 11 wish again the old skule-days In our old skule, dear old skule. Edith McChter, 70 dorcLa- 71 LAW CLASS. • OFFICERS.

Ever since its organization, the La- n;ar Literary Society has been one of the n ' lOst important adjuncts of Miilsaps College. Its members are always among the foremost men in College, and in de- bate they are worthy of consideration. In all its history, no year has been so successlul as the present. It has pros- pered not only from a literary point of view but also from a financial, as a few facts will demonstrate. Members of our society are to represent the College botii in the Mississippi Oratorical Contest and the Crystal Springs Chautauqua, V. F. Alurrah being the representative to the former and S. I. Osborn to the latter. Then again we have not allowed our money " to lie idly by " but have used it in equipping and beautifying our hall. The result is that we have one of the most beautiful and attractive halls to be found anywhere. When we returned this year it was discovered that many of our last year ' s men would not be back again, and con- siderable anxiety was expressed as to the outcome of this year ' s work ; but all fears of an unsuccessful year ' s work were soon dispelled, for it was soon dis- covered that our ranks had been replen- ished with a number of men thoroughly imbued with the spirit of our motto: " Nulla palma sine, labore. " We were equally successful in securing honorary ' members, and many men are now in the societv hard at work, who would not have become members had it been for these ' attractions. " Patriotism and love of the society rather than politics have characterized this year ' s work. Jn the selection of officers, debaters and speakers the men have had one end in view, and that to secure the best and most capable men regardless of class or other affiliations. At the annual election, which oc- curred in the early part of the session, the following men were chosen to rep- resent the society in the various capac- ities : Anniversarian, S. I. Osborn ; Or- ator, C. H. Kirkland; Commencement Debaters, Jeff Collins and W. F. Mur- rah ; Mid-Session Debaters, T. L. Bailey and O. F. Turner. W. A. Williams was elected to represent the society in the Inter - Collegiate Debate between the Southern University and IVIillsaps. The debate occurred at Greensboro, Alabama, and Mr. Williams and his colleague from the Galloway Society won the question. We are now nearing the end of the vear ' s work and are anxiously awaiting Commencement, for then we believe that our members will do our society great honor. To the one who peers through the dim vista of the future the prospe cts seem brighter than ever before ; so we can but prophesy that next year ' s work will be the greatest in the history of the society. 86 GALLOWAY LITERARY SOCIETY Founded, October 8, 1892.

The history of the Galloway Literary Society, indicating the time of its origin, its purpose, and the honors won during the first fourteen years of its existence having been published in a previous edi- tion, it only remains to tell what has been accomplished in the session of nineteen hundred six and seven. The Galloway Literary Society is a progressive organization having no pa- tience with the old realistic idea that we should accept things as we find them, rather believing that man has accom- plished nothing that cannot be improved upon. This progressive spirit has been manifested this year in amending the ■constitution so as to provide for a public meeting for the first Friday evening of •each month, and for an extemporaneous ■debate in addition to each regular pro- gramme. The purpose of the former is to stimulate speakers to greater efforts ■and to give the public an opportunity to see the kind of work the society is aoing. But the society is not content with being on the right side of every question simply, and is satisfied only when it has brought others over to its own way of thinking. For example, upon learning that the Lamar Society, a similar organi- zation of the College, was laboring under a delusion that we should not have an in- heritance tax law, it immediately sent two of its most popular orators, j iessrs. W. O. Uackstrom and J. C. Rousseaux, to that honorable body for the purpose of convincing them of their error. The Gallowa} ' representatives soon became aware that their task was no easy one, lor they were met in public debate by two of Lamar ' s, who, though in the wrong, were so sure that they were right t hat they sustained their convictions with ex- cellent argTiment. However, the Gallo- way representatives were ecjual to the oc- casion and succeeded in converting them to their views. The advancement of the society dur- ing this term over that of the previous ones is not due to chance. It is due, in a large measure, to the wise leadership of its presidents and the faithful efiforts of its speakers ; and so long as the so- ciety is composed of men who believe in its motto and are loyal to its constitu- tion, it will be in no danger of decline but its march will ever be onward and upwartl to the attainment of the highest aspirations of its most enthusiastic lead- ers, confirming their belief that while the societv has won more than its share of honors in the past the future has still greater honors in store for it. 91 OFFICERS.

A. has been ever dominated by the two-fold purpose ( 1 ) of leading men to an aeceptance of Christ, and ( 2 ) of forming such asso- ciations among the students as to help them guard against the temptations of college life. It places the spiritual above the intellectual and emphasizes the im- portance of Christian activity in educa- tion. The Association strives to accomplish its worthy ideal by holding twice-a-week prayer-meetings conducted by the stu- dents, or, has frequently been the case, by some member of the Faculty. Pro- fessors ' almsley, Swartz, Rickets and Wise have so favored us this session. Attracted away by other things in the spring, however, students need more of a stimulus than weekly meetings ; this stimulus is provided by the annual re- vival services, conducted this session by- Rev. Paul AI. ISrown, of the i oiiisiana Conference. Nor is this the only method of the Association to keep up a lively interest in Christian work : to this end delegates each year are sent to some students ' con- vention. From such trips the delegates return fired with new enthusiasm to im- part to those who have tarried " by the stuff. " The usual Southwestern Confer- ence at Ruston this year saw a clelega- tiiin from Millsaps larger than any other representation from the Colleges of the Southwest. Those going from our Col- lege were Messrs. Brown. Alullins, R. H. Rufif, Kirkland, Guinn, W. 1 ' . Moore, Currie, P. right and .Murrah. The ten days of the Conference are assiduously devoted to discussing Y. M. C. A. work. The afternoons, however, are given to athletics. Messrs. Aloore, jMuUins, Kirk- land anfl Murrah were conspicuous for good work on the foot-ball team, com- posed of Alississippi men that overcame the men from Texas. The basket-ball pennant was won by the Millsaps rep- resentation. The Association work is the students " work, as will be seen by noticing " the plan of work. The President ajipnints seven chairmen of seven committees, composed each of three men. The first is the Ad- vertising Committee whose duty it is at the opening of each session to have dis- tributed among the students a hand-and- memorandum book with camjius in- formation, and to advertise special meet- ings. The work of the Reception Commit- tee is to see that an entertainment is had for the new students — a time wliL-n all arc made acquainted with each other. The Membership Committee meet each new man on the campus and indi iduall - urge him to join the Y. M. C. A.. The Association lias 117 members. Then there is the Finance Committee whose chairman is the Treasurer of the Asso- 94 ciation ; they collect the yearly dues ($1.50) from each member and raise sufficient funds for the deleg-ations and the minister who conducts the revival. The work of providing leaders for the meetings is delegated to the devotional committee. Finally, the Missionary and Bible Study committees are important ; tlie first sees to it that the subject of mis- sions is enthusiastically presented to the students, that courses of study in mis- sions is enthusiastically presented to the students, that courses of study in mis- sions are offered, and that men are trained in SA ' stematic giving to missions. At the opening of each session the Bible Study Committee earnestly solicits each student to take systematic work in Bible study. The courses are all so arranged as to allow a certain part of time to be spent in daily study: on Sunday rrom 2 to 3 o ' clock the grou-s meet to dis- cuss the lessons of the foregoing week. There are ninety-five men enrolled. A new feature this session has been the Y. M. C. A. DeT)artment in the .1 (7 - Sii s Collci iaii. With .Air. J. R. Uright as the able editor, the principles of the Association have been clearly enunciated — common evils have been discussed and reports made.

The year just closing has Ijeen one of marked interest in Ath- letics, and this is the more to be noted as it lollows a year of un- usual depression. The Athletic Association, which is the center of all athletic activit} ' , has been peculiarly fortunate in having as its head Air. W. F. Murrah, who has succeeded in arousing enthusiasm to such a degree that the membership of the Association is nearly four times as large as last vear. The Gymnasium has been, for the greater part of the year, under the efficient care of Mr. Easterling. and it has not only proved a means of development and training, but has also been a place of pleasant resort, especially when bad weather prevented out- door sports. The interest in the first i)art of the ye. r centered in the class contests for a silver loving cup ofl ' ered to the winning foot-ball team. While the cup was won by the Senior Class team, with the Juniors a close second in the percentage column, every class developed foot-ball material that might have creditably represented the College. The interest manifested by J.ie whole College, and the enthusiastic attendance at each game vere new and most en- couraging features at ] Iillsaps. The class contest for the basket-ball championship was not attended with the enthusiastic interest manifested during the foot- ball season, but Air. Gieger, the accomplished basket-ball manager, succeeded in developing good material, and the victory of the Junior team was well earned. Interest in base-ball is hard to arouse and maintain at Alillsaps, as the majorit} ' of the capable base-ball men are mfected with the mania for seeing professional base-ball, and the opening of the League season finds on the bleacheries those men who should be in college practice. Teams were organized from each class, and while it was soon evident that the contest was narrowed down to the Freshman and Preparatory teams, interest was kept up till the end, when the Freshmen won the j)ennant offered by Mr. Alurrah with a percentage of looo. ii8 The Tennis Club, as well as the Athletic Association, felt the beneficial effects of a change of administration. The new president. Professor U. H. Aloore, has been full of enthusiasm, both on the courts and the platform, and has built up the most successful Ten- nis Club ever known here. Two new courts were made, and the interest has not flagged during the year. . liandicaj) tournament was held in the early spring, and Air. J. IS. Catching won the prize racket offered by Professor Moore. Another tournament was held on Patriots ' Day, and a team representing the College found no difficulty in defeating the Jackson High School. The leading Athletic feature of Patriots ' Day. the new spring- holiday at Millsaps, was a hotly contested game of base-ball be- tween the Freshman team and an all-AIillsaps team, ' ith the exception of one " swatfest " inning, the game was a very even con- test, and the enthusiasm of the " rooters " was kept at high tide. The all-.Millsaps team, however, was unable to recover from the disastrous first inning, and the Freshmen were allowed to enjoy the reception given by the Freshman co-eds vith a clear conscience and a light heart. The games this year have been mostly intcr-class games, but there have been a few exceptions. Earlv in the fall the Prepara- tory foot-ball team won an eas}- victory over the Jackson High School, and at the Students ' Conference held at Ruston, Louisiana, in Christmas week, the Alillsaps men won tb.e basket-ball pennant. In the early spring Alanager Catching rook his victorious Fresh- man base-ball team over to Clinton, to play the Freshmen of Alis- sissippi College, and it is prudent not to iu ' iuire too closely into the details of this latest ' aterloo. Summing up the year we can say that wh.ile the new athletic field, so ardently desired, has not been secured, and while many of our promising athletes still waste their energy in watching League games, this has been a good year, and every indication points to a still brighter future. .

A }oung " man of iwenty-six was sit- ting on tlie banks ul the Atchafala) " a gazing into its waters, whose natural beauty was lieightencd Ijy tlie rays of the setting sun, mingling its flickermg light with the shadows of the tall cottonwcjods growing along the banks. It was an evening in June, when no sound could be heard save the hum of the bees amung the clover, and the murmur of the wa- ters as they glided by on their way to the( lakes. The trees were covered with deep foliage and tlie levees, winding along either bank of the river, clothed in their summer costumes of green, with cattle grazing peacefully on them, looked as if they were built for an ornament rather than for a defence. Just behind the young man lay Broken Arrows, " The Milage of Roses. " to the north and east of which were the vast, rich cot- ton fields stretching from the Atchafal- aya to the Mississippi, twenty miles dis- tant ; and to the south and west were deep forests of cottonwood and the " Golden Lakes " of the Atchafalaya. Ten years ago Orley Reed, for such was his name, entered Broken . rrows for his first time ; friendless, an utter stranger, and with no capital except the memories of a Christian home and an unshaken faith in his mother ' s God. A few weeks before his arrival at Broken Arrows he had been called home on ac- count of the extreme illness of his fa- ther, who died shortly afterwards, leav- ing him and his little sister, Eunice, of fourteen summers, to face the world as best they could. When Orlev had set- tled his father ' s accounts he found that thev still had about one hundred dollars to their credit. This lie gave ' to ins sis- ter and sent her off to college ; and he had been walking from village to village seeking employment, when he came to Broken Arrows, a small town in Louisi- ana. Here he found work in a grocery store which paid scarcely enough to keep his sister at college and pay his board. However, he secured a night school which enabled him to buy his clothes and occasionally a book to read. The young boy soon learned that his was not an easy task. When his sis- ter left for college, lie had kissed her g ' ood-bye without shedding a single tear and had told her not to cry, " For I can make lots of money somewhere, " he said ; but when the train which carried her away from him had passed out of sight, a feeling of utter loneliness came over him, and he almost repented that he had sent her away. Xor did his ex- perience with the world make his liurden any the lighter, and nothing but his dogged determination and his love for his sister enabled him to hold his own luring his first few months at Broken Arrows. r.ut Orley ' s prospects began to brighten after his first year in this little village. His diligence and his honesty in dealing with customers had so in- creased his employer ' s trade that he ad- vanced his salary more than once during the year. Nor had he won the respect and the esteem of the business world alone, but in social circles his congenial manner had made him many friends, among whom was I eonard Gorden, a oimg man from Ohio who had come to Broken Arrows to serve as pharmacist in 155 his uncle ' s drug store. The two boys, both from distant cities, naturally sympathized witli each other, and fiom this sympathy lliere sprang up a iife-long friendship. Almost ever)- Suntlay afternoon, lor this was the only time which they had en- tirely to themselves, they might be seen strolling along the banks of the Atcna- falaya, stopping here and there to gaze with rapture upon the beautiful scenery which Xature has furnished so abun- daiuiy in the Southland, and especially in this particular spot, " where reigns perpetual summer " ; or they loved also to be out on the Golden Lakes of the Atchafalaya in their canoe, one reading aloud while the other held the oar, which he used occasionally to keep the wind from driving the boat into the bushes which grew along the shore. Thus four years passed by, unevent- ful so far as the world could sec, yet full of change for the boy. He was no longer a clerk in a grocery store ; he and Leonard had giine into the mercan- tile business together and were dding business on a larger scale than their former employers, for their friends transferred their trade from the old firm to the new one. Orley ' s contact with the world had changed the open- hearted boy to a keen financier. Xor had he gained all and lost nothing in the transformation ; his dealings with shrewd traders, some of them unprinci- pled, had sharpened his business ability, l)ut that acuteness of moral perception, which enabled him to distinguish the good from the evil, had been blunted by the same process. The old delight in the beauties of Nature and the sim- pler pleasures of his earlier davs had been smothered, and the enterpiising spirit of commercialism was enthroning " itself in his heart, teaching him to be- lieve that a man ' s life consists in the abundance of the things which he pos- sesseth. At this critical period there came something into his life which was des- tined to save him from becoming a mere money-making machine and toi relight the purer fires in his soul. Eunice had finisned her college course and had come to liroken Arrows to live with Orley, ij.inging with her Freda Downing, one of her school companions to spend part of the summer i with her. This little tiower of a girl, with her dark hair and brciwn eyes, which sparkled with fun or ffashed with intelligence as the occa- sion demanded, was the " something " which was to bring about a transforma- tion in the young man ' s life. Orley had determined to make his sister ' s friend enjoy her visit as soon as he learned that she was coming, and alter meeting her he had no desire to change his plans. Each afternoon he managed to spend an hour or two with " the girls, " as he and Leonard usually s])oke of them. One evening they would spend fishing on the Golden Lakes, per- haps the ne.xt riding over the beautiful waters of the Atchafalaya, the girls calling a halt occasionally that they might pluck the wild flowers or gather the mosses which grew so abundantly at the water ' s edge. I eonard was nearly al- ways with them. He proved to be thor- oughly capable of entertaining Eunice and ( )rley ' s attentions were devoted to Freda. ft was during these hours of companionshi|_i that the young school girl, wdiose every thought and wdiose whole being was as pure as the wild flowers which he gathered for her, was unconsciouslv leading him away from those things which had threatened to destroy his better self. The environments of these tw ' O young people had been very different. Freda ' s father was a rich real estate man, and his home in Atlanta, Georgia, was one of lu.xurv and refinement; Orley ' s father was a small apple-grower near a little town in Illinois. Freda knew nothing of the world in which she lived except 1-6 its flowers, its books, and its sunshine ; Orley had seen much of the hard and thorny side of hfe. Yet there was some- thing in each Hfe whicli drew the otlier to it. Orley hatd not reaUzed how piuch Freda had become to liim until the time was nearing for her to return home, and even then he dared not tell her of his affection for her. " What right, " he thought, have I, an unpolished, unedu- cated village merchant, to ask her to share my lot with me ? " Poor boy ! How little he knew of a woman ' s heart, especially of this one, which felt be- neath the rough exterior of his life the finer and nobler principles of true man- hood. The loneliness which C)rley felt when Freda had gone home was made the less tolerable by the unintentional neglect of Eunice and Leonard, who, in theii new delight in each other ' s company, had left him to spend his leisure moments alone. Orley, however, was not resent- ful, for he understood; and furthermore, he wished no greater blessing for his sister than that she should become the wife of Leonard Gorden. Accordingly, when they told him a few weeks later that they were to be married soon, he congratulated them from the depths of his heart and advised that the - fix the date of their wedding as early as possible. These are ' the eventJs forming the first epoch in Orley ' s life. We will now follow him through the events leading up to where we find him on the banks of the Atchafalaya. .-Vfter Leonard ' s and Eunice ' s marriage, which took place two months later, Orley decided to leave Broken Arrows and complete his educa- tion, which had been hindered by the death of his father ; and as he had been at the University of Chicago when his father died, he now thought it best to return and take up his work where he had left it ofif. There were two reasons wh} ' he desired to complete his educa- tion : first he wished to fit himself for larger usefulness, and second, he was determined to remove the barriers which he felt that educational ditierences had placed between him and Freda Downing, Accordingly, a few weeks later, business ties severed, after an atfectionate leave of his sister and friends, he found him- self on board a New Orleans steamer, the first part of his journey begun. The sun, rising from the cotton fields in the east, was bathing in golden light the tops of the tall forest in the west ; and fall- ing a half hour later upon the lakes of the Atchafalaya, it turned them into seas of shining gold. Orley stood on the deck of the steamer gazing with tender sadness on the magnificent scenery and the familiar objects as he passed them by. Here stood a live oak under whose wide- spreading branches he had rested from his weary walk on his arrival in Broken Arrows ; there under those cottonwoods lay a large stone where he and Freda had sat on the evening before she left. How he recalled every word of hers and the unspoken words which had trembled on his own lips, but which he dared not utter. Living over the past, he looked again upon the Golden Lakes, The Mi- lage of Roses, and the green cotton fields ! then he turned and alked ito his state room, his eyes half blinded with tears. The same genial nature which had made him loved in Broken Arrows brought Orley many friends in Chicago, and it was here that he became convinced of his life-work. The need of social re- form in the great cities and the call for a man who would devote his life to it appealed to him, and through all of his college davs the solution of this prob- lem was the one dominating purpose of his life. It would be interesting to fol- low Orlev through the stages of his de- velopment at the L niversity, and see the eflfect of the different influences which bore upon his life, but we must pass 157 over the five years of University lite to wliere we find Orley, now at the age of twenty-six, on the banks of the Atcha- falaya on this evening in June. L)rley liad completed his education and had returned to Broken Arrows to look once again upon the scenes of his earlier days before entering into the field which he had chosen for his life-work. Although many changes had been made in the town since he left it five years ago, there were a few things that had remained the same ; his sister ' s face had lost none of its freshness and she seemed as far removed from care as the little boy of four and ihe little girl of two who called her mother ; and the Atchafa- laya which had woven into his very soul the music of its rippling waters, seemed as eternal in its beauty as the Lrod who created it. As the evening began to wear away, Orley stole away from his friends that he might listen to the soft nuirmuring of the waters and dream of the past. But there was an expression of sadness on his face which changed to one of deeper tenderness as the mem- ories of the past came back to him. No wonder that he looked sad, for he knew that before another sun would rise in the east, he and his beautiful river, with all its sacred memories, would be niany miles apart. But it was not his love for the river which caused the expression on his face to deepen to one of tenderness, but its association with the one who had taught his eyes to see its beauty again, when for a time it had been hid from him. It is true he had been with her only a few times, but how those few times had changed his whole life ! It was she who walking along the banks of the river, had stopped where he now sat to call his attention to the beauties of the scen- ery around them, and looking through her eyes he had l earned to see things as she saw them. It was while sitting with her on that same stone that he had determined to win her love and make her his wife, but he had not dared to speak to her until he had gotten his ed- ucation. Thus he mused; " Only last week Eunice received a letter from her which stated that she and her father- would be in Baton Rouge some time soon, and that she would come over to Broken Arrows to spend a day while her father was attending to some business, lint why did she not answer my letter? Is it possible that she did not receive it? I can find out by telling Eunice, but I won ' t. I can take care of my own afifairs. " Such were the thoughts that were passing through Orley ' s mind as he sat there alone. But presently his attention was drawn to a large steamboat which la nded about a quarter of a mile above him. He saw ai woman get ofl the boat and start down the bank of the river in liis direction, but if she was going- to town why did she not take a cab instead of following this round-about path ? The boats generally remained an hour or more at Broken Arrows landing, and passengers often took advantage oi this delay to see some of the scenery along the banks of the river, which was noted for its beauty. So thought Orley in the present instance and was soon again in his deep reverie. The woman did not see him, for he was sitting on the oppo- site side of two trees between which some fishermen had hung a tarpaulin to protect their fire from the breeze while tliey were cooking their dinner. Nor did he think of her again until he heard a light step and looking around, he saw a girl standing between him and the wa- ter ' s edge, looking down upon the wild jessamine which grew in tangles at her feet. She was dressed in a neat gray traveling costume, and though he could not see her facef distinctly, there was something about her features that caused him to think that he had seen her be- fore. Presentl " she turned her face a 158 little further m his direction and he saw a tear glistening in her eye as she said in a low voice, " Oh, Orley, if you had only spoken then ! " He knew her voice and saw before him the object of all his thoughts. For a moment he could not speak or move, so great was his emotion. Then recov- ering himself he arose and stepped soft- ly to her side and said : , " Freda, I can speak yet if it is not too late. " She could not answer him, for her surprise was even greater than his. " Sit down here, Freda, " he said, leading her to the stone where he had been sitting, " I have something to tell you. " He sat down by her side and took her hand in his own. " Five years ago we sat here together and it was then that I first learned to love you. Through all the years that have passed I have longed for your com- panionship. Tell me that you love me, Freda, that you will never leave me again. " " 1 love you, " she said simply. Xo sound could be heard to break the stillness of the hour except the soft murmur of the waters, for the hum of the bees among the clover had ceased, tlic sun had gone down into the lakes in tlie west, leaving the the evening star. softer litrht of R.
