James Aixjlphus IMoore. Dr. J. A. Moore. AN APPRECIATION. » » So many worlds, so much to do. So little done, such things to be. How know I what had need of thee. For thou wert kind as thou wert true. " This tribute to his lamented friend by England ' s great laureate comes easily to mind in view of the present death of Dr. J. A. Moore, our honored Professor of ] Iathematics. We cannot conceive of him otherwise than as fill- ing the right place and doing with his might the right thing, to whatever sphere God niav have called him. Like a true W ' esleyan he was " never unemployed, never trifiingly emploved. ' " So single was his aim in life, so constant his devo- tion to duty, and withal so unique was his personality, that he is become an integral part of the history of Alillsaps College. In an important sense it mav be said that he was the founder of our Department of Mathematics, for while not one of the original Faculty, he signed the diplomas of our first graduating class, and left the impress of his strong individuality upon their successors for a period of nearly fourteen years. The ordinary terms of obituary writing would not be appronriate in this appreciation of our subject. To say that a figure long familiar upon our cam- pus and in our college halls has disappeared ; that a teacher of rare equipment and distinguished service has been lost to the educational work of our State and Church: that the voice of a faithful minister of the gospel has been hushed in death ; that a kind neighbor, a true friend, a good citizen, a devoted husband, a wise and tender father has ceased to live — would all be true ; but those who knew Dr. Moore well would hardly think of these things as necessary to be said ; they fall naturally into the scheme of a life like his. It would be in doubtful taste, however the facts might justify it, to speak in terms of fulsome oraise concerning one whose dominant characteristic was simplicity and exactness. And yet he will, in college tradition, be always asso- ciated with the love and rememberable teachers, real or imaginary, that are met with in our reading of Ene-lish or other literature. He was not - Dr. Arnold, but Dr. Arnold himself had no greater gift of rectitude, no loftier stand- ard of life, personal or professional, than he ; he was not a counterpart of the master we read of in " The Deserted Milage. " and yet Goldsmith ' s genial dom- inie inspired no truer devotion, no more loyal admiration than did Dr. Moore among those who from time to time came under his tuition. From the C(|uation of his hfc, 1im wvct. w c must chmiiiau- ilu- foihk-s of the village savant. Somehow cohere in-vmiity invented no niekname tor him, and it is worthy of note that the most I ' l tlh ' ekinL; im i ,d df tlu ' e( lIe,L;e wit ne ei- attributed to him anythin.L;- that w as hltle or low. In the srhi ol-r( » mii. on the campus, on chuy or at leisure, he was always the same; kind, rarn i, di nilied. simple, candid, a man who knew what iie thought and meant what he said. The limit assig-ued us leaves no room for detailed aecdunl i his hovhood and student life or of his services in the ministry and in the several schools in which he taught. His later career is thus summarizt ' (l in (,ui- College catalogue: " A.B., Southern University, 1880. and . ..M., 1SS7; member of the Alabama (, ' 011- ferencc, 1881-94, and of the Mississipj)i Conference since 181)4; I ' rot ' essor of Mathematics, Southern I ' niversity, T883-i8t;4: I ' h.l)., Illinois sK- an I ' liiver- sity. 1888. " To this may be added. Professor of Mathematics in .Millsaps C(»l- leg-e, 1894-1908. The filling of this outline ma - be taken for granted. It w as at i)ical Amer- ican life, one fully possible in no other land than ours. . bra e. ambitious, single-minded country boy, inspired by high ideals steadfastly adheied to, grew normally into the successful college student, the faithful ])astor. the accom- lilished teacher, the honest, honored, trustwortlu ' man. Special mention should be made of Dr. Moore as a Christian. In this char- acter, though skeptical to the last degree in matters of science, his faith was like that of a little child. T( ) him God ' s Word wa.s the word of God, authoritati -e and final; the cardinal doctrines of Christianitv were sacred truths, not mere |ue-- tions for debate. A peculiar interest attaches to the judgment passed b - a student budy ujion a teacher whom they have known for many vears. . n occasional may provoke passing criticism; peculiaritv of dress, or s])eech. or manner may chal- lenge college caricature and both may express themsehes in extra aganl ways, but in the long run, he who stands the test of college scruiin and receives the stamp of college approval, may be trusted anywhere. Before this court Dr. foore stands unim])eaclied, and the ctiUcge -erdict is: " ] rark the perfect man and behold the ui)right, for the end of that man is i)eace. " In the keeping of this court his good name will be secure, and none the less if judgment should be rendered in terms he used so often, and he should be re- membered among us as one whose character was a " constant ' in all manlv vir- tues, and his life an " increasing variable " whose " limit " was " the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. " While Millsaps College .stands, the memory of Dr. .Moore will be honored ar.d revered. In the hearts of his old j)ui)ils lie will have his own place always, and in College tradition he will stand out a ligure distinct in every lineament, himself " to the tinger-tips, " " nor Launcelot nor another.

He had often told them how foolish they were to be so tamely alike, but they kept on and paid no heed to his words. ' " One day the father called his sons before him and divided among them seven sticks, all different in form, in bark, and in wood. ' Beiiold, ' he said, how no stick is like another of the seven. ' And each son caught the eye of the next, and they answered, ' We see, ' " Then the father took the seven sticks and tied them tightly together and gave the bundle to each of the sons in turn, saying, ' Behold now how much alike the sticks appear, and how some of them can scarcely be seen. ' And, without consulting his neighbor, each son replied, ' I see. ' " ' My sons, ' said the good man, ' if you stand together like these sticks, you have no room to show strength, or sense, or greatness ; but if you act apart, each will be independent of others and will appear greater before the world. " So reads the revised version of the classic story, and the Seniors of 190S have had the wisdom to adopt the policy therein set forth. For three years we wasted our talents in the foolish way common to college classes ; for a his- tory of this vain period of our exist- ence the reader is referred to Volumes I, 2, and 3 of the Bobashela. But in our fourth year we boldly adopted the maxim — some say we coined it — " in individualism is greatness, " and we have tried to follow it consistently. Would we play foot-ball under common rules which compelled us to play like everybody else? No. Would we grad- uate in caps and gowns just because a silly crowd of people last year wanted not only to think and act, but even to look alike? Certainly not. Could we be content to waste our own individual- ity and also our parents ' substance by burning midnight electricity only to learn the same things from our books that thousands had learned before us? It was hard to answer this question, but we did it, and we hope to forget what it cost us. We feel sure that we were right in learning our lessons in our own several ways, and we are cer- tain that we shall continue to feel sure that we were right; but we are not inhuman, and the resulting misunder- standing with Professors and with home folk has tried us sorely. In future years, when individualism has taken a stronger root in our civilization, teach- ers will give to each pupil a special ex- amination suited to his special interest in each special subject, and the reports sent home will not be so — disappoint- ing. Meanwhile we will not be dis- couraged by taunts of " laziness " and " lack of college and class spirit. " Like other great souls who have been ahead of their age, we have been misunder- stood, but tune will reveal our greatness. In such a Class as ours one would naturally expect to find great variety, and such is really the case. Alphabet- ically, we range from first to last. In altitude, our limits are Addington and Kirkland ; in diameter, Zung and Ridg- way. In general appearance, we repre- sent all degrees of handsomeness and plainness. In variety of accomplish- ments, we are unsurpassed ; for we have acquired the cream of literature, art, and music — particularly music. As for professions, not content with producing only lawyers and doctors, we include in our number everything from a preacher to a gambler, from a cook to a book-agent ; we have an athlete and a translator, a man of letters and a man of leisure, a politician, an insur- ance man and a chemist ; we have even a co-ed and a Chinee ! ' erily. the world shall hear from us later. Senior Prophecy. 9 This is a burden tremendous, the judg- ing of men in the future, Learned with rules and with theories, wholly unfitted for practice. Few are the laurels rewarded, or many the trials encountered, Joy of the sharing reposes, extended from Zung unto Adams. Unrolling the scroll of the mighty, prophets must so as the poets Climb Fame ' s ladder far higher, by clothing in vagueness foretellings. Hence one reading unaided predictions entitled the ' " Seniors " Must like lawyers in causes duly cross- question the witness. x ddington ' s graceful physique life ' s battles forever will conquer, All else failing completely, resources entirely exhausted. Brains like breezes refreshing contend- ing disputes to be mastered. Prove to be lacking immensely in pow- er sufficient to prosper. Fighting ' gainst forces unnumbered, he goes through life with the famous. Learning to use for capacity monev ac- quired in abundance. Names, like words superfluous, never can change the receiver, This proves true unmistakablv, speak- ing of Adams the " Senior. " Mind well-trained and befitting to con- quer adversity angry, Strength not unfailing nor meager, but useless for work at the counter. Thinking of hearts to be wooed, he plays life ' s game as a bachelor. Luckily seeing unused in the scope of his powers tremendous. Knowledge profound unasserted, he finally vies with the famous. Heads though red as the garnet, con- taining the brains of a giant, Shine through ages untarnished, a glim- mering hard to disfigure. Blount, like bankers bewildered, because of a run on deposits, Turns upon friends parasitic with stern- ness sufficient to frighten. Day after day in his closet bethinking himself of finances, Pining for millions unearned, he gets no receipts for his troubles. Gems in the rough yet unnoticed as time rolls ceaselessly onward. Seldom reflect much brightness when waiting too long the refiner. This is the fortune unhappy of Collins, the old and the rustic. Who, though young in the body, in mind bears proofs of the aged. Guided by feelings mislead i n g, he weaves life ' s fibers belated. Finding a lovely companion, he chooses the young and the tender. Ponderous thoughts in abundance, be- longing to more than a mortal. Only of Cook are possessions, if judg- ing from omens confirming. Struck with his own personalitv. choos- ing himself as the subject, Strutting with pride and presumptuous, acts he the role of the haughty. Year after year he conducted with glory and pomp in his powers. Interests small but important, until he reposed with the fathers. Next comes Gieger, the farmer, who speaks in the choicest of language. Facts which the sages of old could not have afiForded to question. Men like children constructed, the brightest can never accomplish 35 Feats to the j reatcst belonp inj , when differing; only from children. What can he do unprepared, this shark of the woods in his s]:)len(lor? Well! it is said in the Scri])tures, " He ' s weighed in balance and wanting. " Falling from planets celestial, recount- ing the deeds of the mighty. Lighting on objects reserved, we suig of the mute and the Hand some. Innocence covers his visage, declaring a soul full of goodness. Mischief in lurking invisible lies in his eyes like a raven. Dreaming of chickens uncaptured, he squeezes the bird on the dollar ; Fighting the foe indecision, he finally comes into judgment. Taffy forever receiving, the food for one Kirkland, the F ' isher, Brings to the seeker expectant solicited praise of endeavor. Lengthy and brainy, loquacious, endued w ith the " cheek " of a monarch, Comely and brawny, conceited, he ever converses of Kirkland. Fully aware of his talents, he enters the field as a lawyer, Climbing at last to renown, he is aided in singing his praises. Lonely and lovely, confiding, unmindful of self in her greatness, Brilliant yet modest extremely, Miss Huddleston plans for the future. Gentle and soothing her presence, for- bearing and charming her nature. Winsome and hajipy, her beauty com- pletely controls her companions. Lives no more sympathetic have ever humanity favored. Choosing to give unrewarded gifts to the wretched much needed, Rather than suffer ungiven ; she wins the devotion of Seniors. Doubting the wisdom of sages, contend- ing for principles hackneyed, Living the life of a hermit, Magee finds solace in oddness. What is expected of ancients who live in the age of improvement? How can a person cons])icuous come from a man so distrusting? Doctors of old, superstitious, pronounc- ing the words of a wizard. Find in Magee a successor in saving the lives of his {patients. Fountains of fun well up purling in the folds of these cortical regions, Alusic and laughter resounding an- nounce the arrival of Mo-ore. Friends in abundance unwa v e r i n g, haunting his palace majestic. Time after time to his bounty appeal for his aid in misfortune. Great was his life and remembered, un- selfish beyond a suspicion. " Honor " and " fame " are synonyms properly used in applauding. Lives so potent yet simple that more could not be expected. Born in a palace of wisdom adoring the person of " Billy, " Lost to himself and his prestige, yet Murrah is worthy of honor. Seized with a passion for knowledge, he earnestly strives to recover Moments misspent, reposing on sofas, inviting to sluggards. Gay as a jay in the springtime, demure and sedate when essential, Lastly appraising his caliber, great he became by forgetting. Bearing on shoulders Atlantean knowl- edge of science terrestrial. Hampered by flesh in profusion, though victor of flesh and its evils, Ridgeway adds to his learnino- experi- ence valued in practice, Dealing with problems familiar, because he has learned in debating How to delay the proceedings, he easily shuns the collector Till in his pocket he carries voluminous bills to his credit. 36 Preachers in battles contested, with wounds are seldom afflicted. Rousseaux warmly insisting, receives from the arrow of Cupid, Differing- widely from warriors, a wound in his left " pulmonary. " Slightly recovering vigor, dismissing his troubles of heartache. Sowing the seeds pessimistic, he passes away with the youthful. Prophets the mark are quite missing, attempting to write " epitaphy. " Apt yet indeed is the saying, " Forever he talked with the angels. " Ruff as a ruffian moulded, but keen as a briar is pointed, Rushes on wildly, not thinking that time will reveal to his sorrow. Something constructed by Satan on him was forever a-gnawing. Out in the country remote, to the neas- ants and farmers relating Tales so stale, so hackneyed, that fun from their presence has faded, " Tommy " forever resides, though hoard- ing the coveted millions. Solemn and sour in apuearance, for Sumrall has trials with his liver. His is a mood quite fitful and his the religion of skeptics. Such will befall all creatures who fight with the foe indigestion. Planning forever and missing, he effects not half his intentions. Strong is his will energetic, resulting from this was his greatness. " Zep " is the reas ' ner proficient, the ar- guing " shark " of the Campus, Hailing with gladness vacation from toils to the fiesh which are tiresome. He who receives for his labor the price for a prince to be proud of. He who enjoys in his leisure the mo- ments however recurrinir. Dift ' ers from Zepernick onlv nerchance in proclaiming his virtues. Days that are lucky are numbered, and " Zep " must beware of the " Jonahs. " Zung is the Chinaman wandering far from the haunts of his childhood. Time will declare to the wanderer sad and bereft of his habits. Rough is the way of the " Melican, " famed for his riches unbounded. Tasting the pleasures of travel, he starts on a tour never ending. Taking advantage of knowledge ac- quired by experience varied. He in the realm of the useful expounds to the heathen the gospel. Thus is my prophecy ended, of sages untried in the future. Glory is mine in abundance if onlv the truth is predicted ; Guilty am I and atrocious if that which is false is asserted. Pardon me, Seniors, for " knocking, " if " knocks " should be proved o ut of order. I by the Chief of the Witches in all of these sayings was guided.

Yes ; it deals with those persons who are destined to play a great part in the progress of the world as it speeds on its mighty course. In- deed, their names, if we are to judge the future by the past, will be found some day recorded as great men and women upon the pages of history. But we must let the future speak for itself, and at present relate that which has already been achieved. On November i, 1904, a number of aspiring youths were seen scattered over the Campus looking anxiously at all the buildings and surroundings, and toward night they began to show signs of weari- ness or discontent, and later some were even heard to remark that they wished the " y ' ow-fever scare " had continued forever. They were fifty-four in number — five co-eds and forty-nine boys. They came from all over the world, from both city and country, and from all walks of life. A number of them, like Abraham Lin- coln, had lived in log cabins, and, having learned to use the mall, were accus- tomed to rude circumstances ; others came from more cultured localities, while one came from far-away Soo- chow ; one from Russia sought a place in their ranks, another came from " Mt. Nebo ' s " lonely place, and still another hailed from " Hominy Ridge " ; " Liz- zard Lope, " Jackson, " Oak Grove, " Ox- ford, and many other familiar iijaces sent their representatives ; coming thus from all localities and having followed such a variety of occupations — from twisting Soochow rice straw into Chinese hats to assisting housekeepers in modest Mis- sissippi homes — they presented a some- what varied band. But this condition did not last long; before the session closed they had so united and blended their lives as to pre- sent quite a respectable appearance, with the motto " Morgenstunde hat Gold in Munde " ever ringing in their ears, they did many things of merit. It was natural, this being their first year, for them not to make any great demonstra- tion — except in numbers. June came, and they all returned to their homes to seek the familiar scenes of earlier life. The earth had almost completed a revolution around the sun since this band first had met, and on that beauti- ful September day as the sun burst forth from behind the eastern clouds he looked down and smiled with joy on the Class of " Naughty Nine. " It was indeed a happy time, but lo ! how their happiness was marred when they learn- ed that twenty-four of their former number had not returned ! With only thirty in number, they started on an- other cycle of their existence. They furnished men for every de- partment of College life. In Athletics they excelled; the gridiron battles never 41 conquered them, and the other games, base-ball, basket-ball, and tennis, were never played without them. In class- room they made themselves famous for good works. Though many test-tubes had to be shattered, much crayon crum- bled, and many battles fought in Greek and Latin, yet they came out victorious at the end and were away on another vacation. The summer soon passed, and at the proper time " Naughty Nine " took their places ready and eager for work. With greater regret than that of one year ago, they learned that sixteen more of their class-mates had separated them- selves from College companions. Like Evangeline, the Junior Class sought in vain for the absent " Gabriel. " Thus with broken ranks, but merry hearts, they entered upon the j oiliest part of their College career. Onlv twelve boys and two co-eds were members of that gay company. Having adopted as their Class song, " There ' s a Hole in the Bottom of the Sea, " they chose for a motto, " Sing while the sun shines, " and invariably they disturbed the studious crowd in the chapel. They could not present a foot-ball team when the sea- son came, because two of their number were too " small of stature, " but they were ever ready to " root " and manifest their enthusiasm in every way possible. They produced base - ball players and basket-ball men for the College Team. The literary societies found able sup- porters in the Class of 1909, such as presidents, vice-presidents, mid-session and Commencement debaters, officers and orators of all kinds. The Y. M. C. A., as was the case a year ago, found most of its cabinet and officers among them. In fact, this band of men and women have played a conspicuous part in Col- lege life, and the probability is that still greater deeds will be performed by them in the future. They have left the old Campus again after having closed the third cycle of their existence and are now drinking in the pleasures of another vacation. Reader, watch the future pages of history and learn what this il- lustrious company shall accomplish, for what they may do I dare not undertake to foretell. ' Trepr ' 09. 42 A College Dream. A Poem (?). When the melodies of Millsaps ' curfew Burst forth in anthems grand, It aroused a college spirit And beckoned a loyal band. We came in rapidly flowing streams, In a densely crowded throng, And entered " the green land of dreams, That holy land of song. " Our first dreams were visions of triumph. When above our competitors we stood, And watched the manoeuvres of Professor, And heard him reiterate " Good. " Yes, they were visions that we should recall, If true and sincere we would last, But ere they rang through " Founder ' s Hall, " They perished in the withering blast. But when the final " Exams " came, WE sounded our minds to the bottom. And faced the frightening principal parts, Of fero-ferre-tuli-latum. At first we stood in bitter tears, And wondered from whence came latum; And then we dreamed of future years — But busto! But busto! And zeros we got ' em.

H. M. f., ' 10. 48 History of ' 10. » » » To all who are acquainted with ] Iill- saps College, a history of the Sopho- more Class is quite unnecessary ; but for the benefit of those unfortunates who know not our name and our fame I will endeavor to write a brief sketch of our career. Last year we were Freshmen, poor little ignorant Freshmen, but that was no fault of ours, and since it is nast we wish to forget it. Being Sophomores now, we glory in our wisdom, and real- izing the dignity of our position we feel it our duty to be an example of true greatness for the present Freshmen to follow. It is indeed a great thing to be a Sophomore, but it is greater still to belong to the Class of Nineteen Ten. In numbers we exceed all the classes who have run the same race before us, and in quality — well, I must not boast, for we were never conceited. Ask the professors about our Class records but do not insist upon seeing the grades. They would dazzle your eyes. In Mathematics and Latin there are none like us. In Chemistry we have had only one explosion. In our study of English we have developed some lit- erary genius, for we find the pages of each new Collegian illuminated by inter- esting Sophomore stories. But knowledge and learning are not the only fields which have been invaded by our dauntless young heroes. No one can deny our prowess in foot-ball, for even the Freshmen, so successful in all athletic pursuits, failed to win the cham- pionship cup from our team. All of the Sophs were loyal in their sunnort at the games, and one of our co-eds was voted the best foot-ball " rooter " in School. In base-ball also we fought a good fight. In tennis, basket-ball and " gym " work the Sophomores were en- thusiastic and occupied no mean posi- tions in general College Athletics. The interest in out-of-door sports extended also to the co-ed members of our Class, and they, under Professor Walmslev ' s kind leadership and instruction, organ- ized a basket-ball team that vanquished all of the other girls on the Campus. We claim the honor of beinp- the first Class at Alillsaps to distinguish ourselves from the " common lot " by wearing Class pins. These dainty badges are made in our colors, black and gold. They bear the figure " ' lo, " representing the proud year when we shall sit in Section i and haughtily re- ceive the homage of the lower classmen as they bow to the " Seniors. " We have indeed shed many tears of regret over the loss of our classmates who have already gone into the world, yet I congratulate my Class on both the quantity and quality of those remaining, and hope that we may always keep a survival of the fittest. May all of our number return next September as jolly as ever Juniors can be, and when we shall have left these halls forever, may the Class of Nineteen Ten reflect honor and glory upon our beloved Alma Mater. 49 The Luck of a Four=Leaf. » » » A hot June sun had just set, leav- ing the lazy Campus trees withered and drooping, and even the grass, intoxi- cated with the strong sunHght, lav in dizzy array on the baked ground. The tops of the big red buildings were wav- ing the sun a glad farewell and the ivy vines covering their sides were closing for a night ' s cool rest. A mocking-bird — just one — began to sing and the shiny little lizzards came from their lurking- places to enjoy a silly dance. Except for a small, bare-footed boy, the jan- itor ' s son, who was sitting on the steps in front of the little home, the Campus was deserted. He was lost in thought, a frown on his freckled face, his hands deep into his pockets and his toes busy drawing pictures on the ground at his feet. Tim, for that was his name, had just come from selling the bread and cakes which his mother baked each day and sent with him into the city to sell. But it was not about the bread and cakes nor about horrid old school and cranky teachers that he was studying. Tim was thinking about his sweetheart, and if you were in the third grade and could have a sweetheart like Tim ' s, you too would be thinking witli your hands in your pockets and be drawing pictures in the sand. She was a sure-enough sweetheart with big dancing eyes that sparkled and laughed all the time, and she had a stack of curly brown hair on the top of her head, and she wore big hats covered with pink roses. Ever since the time he had been sick with fever and she had brought him lemonade and books full of pictures and armfuls of red roses, Tim had called her Miss Rose. And Miss Rose was as " true blue " as any boy ' s sweetheart could be. Every evening she bought some of his cakes, and sometimes she even took him up- town on the street car and the} ate ice- cream in a store where everything was looking-glass. Then, too, she would buy candy to take home to mother, and Miss Rose always came in to see her, and didn ' t mind the least bit going right back to the tiny hot kitchen where they always found mother busy with her baking. Tim was not Miss Rose ' s only beau, and he hated all his rivals except one. That was the one who carried her books home every evening and walked all the way up the long row of elms to the steps of the Girls ' Hall, then tipped his hat and was gone. Tim had tried, for hours, before the mirror, to ti ' his hat 50 like that, but he never did get it just right. Somehow this rival reminded Tim of a hero whom he had seen once in a play that Miss Rose had taken mother and him to see. So Tim always called him " Ben-Hur. " Of course Miss Rose called him Mr. Lewis, but Tim knew she liked the other name, for once he had heard Miss Rose call him " Ben- Hur ' and then " Ben-Hur " called her ' ' Miss Rose, " and when they caught him listening they didn ' t laugh one bit. What troubled Tim was that Miss Rose had caught him telling a great big story. He knew Miss Rose would catch him, but he had done it all for her, and Tim was sure she ought to forsfive him — but she hadn ' t. She hadn ' t talked to him nor been to see them since it ail happened, and of course he wouldn ' t offer to sell her any cakes now. It had all come about like this : Miss Rose had been walking home, not with " Ben- Hur, " but with a horrid black-eyed fel- low, and her fraternity pin was gone and " Ben-Hur " was wearino- a face nearly a mile long. Tim had caught him singing: " No one to love, none to caress. Wandering alone through this world ' s wilderness, " so he decided to fix matters up. First, he got out and looked for a four-leaf clover, and as soon as he found one he just flew to Gray Hall and asked for Miss Rose. She came hurrying to the door, wondering what was the matter, and without a quiver, Tim said: " Rose, ' Ben-Hur ' said to give you this and would you please ride to Karl Park with him this afternoon. If you ' 11 go, you is to keep this four-leaf clover. " Rose bit her lips and kent the clover. Tim fairly ran to find ' ' Ben- Hur. " He finally located him away out on the golf links, and Tim had to follow him a long time before he could make himself say it. Oh, it was an awful thing to do, but at last he just up and told " Ben-Hur " that Miss Rose wanted to see him, and would he please come to see her that afternoon — Tim forgot the ride. He didn ' t want the quarter, but " Ben-Hur " insisted, so he had come home conscience-stricken, not because of the stories, but the quarter. Tim was sure it weighed a ton. Then in the af- ternoon there had been a terrible " mix- up " wlien Miss Rose entered the narlor dressed in a riding habit and hat. ft took some time to straighten thinsfs out. but Tim knew everything was all right again, for " Ben-Hur " had patted him on the head and given him another quarter — but Miss Rose — Tim just " reckoned " she didn ' t like story-tellers. It had been two days since all this happened, and what can a little boy do when his sweetheart won ' t come to see him? At last an idea struck him — he would play sick — Tim thought per- 51 haps he would die just to make Miss Rose feel bad. The next morning found Tim in bed with mother bathing his head and fanning him. It was all he could do to stand it, and when he thought of staying there all day, he nearly changed his mind about being sick. All day long he thought of Miss Rose, and his conscience grew heavier with the dragging minutes. Then, just after he had taken some nasty medicine, Tim saw her come into the gate carrying a huge basket of fruit. When she and mother tintoed into the room, Tim was sobbing. " I ' m not sick, I ' m not, and I ' 11 never tell another story as long as I live — honest. Miss Rose. Mayn ' t I have some fruit? Please don ' t scold. Then Miss Rose kissed him and said, " Now be a good boy and you shall have some fruit and to-morrow we ' ll ride to Karl Park with— " But she never finished, for Tim opened wide his eyes and said, " That ' s the purtiest ring I ever have saw.

Freshman Class History. » » » The twenty-fifth day of September, nineteen hundred and seven, marked a memorable period in the history of Millsaps College, for on that day the Class of ' ii made its appearance, and inasmuch as all great organizations are accustomed to transmit a record of their achievements, it falls upon me to submit to posterity a history of the Freshman Class of 191 1. The duty of the histo- rian requires that we lay aside the man- tle of dignity that is now beginning to envelop us and describe ourselves as Freshmen. Where the class originated is a mys- tery. Our members hail from all cor- ners of the Republic. Some were evolved from model boys and girls ; many were " skule-teachers, " while a few were members of the Freshman Class of 19 10. These elements have formed a class where learning is plen- tiful and genius actually runs riot. In the early days of the Class an order went forth for a meeting of all Freshmen in Prof. Moore ' s room for the purpose of organization. On the appointed day the Class assembled, and after discussing matters for a while, we decided that we were almost as good as the proud, haughty Sophomores, even if they did try to intimidate us by con- stantly reminding us that we were Freshmen, and large green ones at that. We possessed latent powers of organi- zation which soon manifested them- selves in the elevation to the presidential chair of our most genial and jolly mem- ber, Mr. J. A. Anders. However, Mr. Anders left school before the term was out, and the Class met and elected in his stead, Mr. R. C. Berry. The Class exercised excellent judgment in the se- lection of two of our most popular co- eds. Miss Wharto n for Vice - President and Miss Park for Secretary. Under these efficient officers the Class has made remarkable progress during the past few months. In Athletic circles we are more prom- inent than any other class in College. There is no phase of College Athletics in which we do not excel. Under the effi- cient direction of our coach, Dr. A. A. Kern, we developed a Foot-Ball Team which not only honored the Class, but reflected great honor on our College. There has been a great deal of specu- lation as to which was the stronger of the two Foot-ball Teams in College, the Freshman or the Sophomore. In our mind the matter is settled beyond a doubt. We played six games in all. Two unofficial games with the Juniors, 57 which we won ; and four with the Soph- omores, two of which we won and two we tied. Early in the spring our Base- ball Team was organized, and it proved to be a team that will be talked of long after our faces arc seen no more at Millsaps. We easily defeated the other Class Teams and won the pennant. And then sat down and " wept for more worlds to conquer. " Over half the men on the ' Varsity Base - ball Team were Freshman. But Athletics was not our only point of ex- cellence. In mental activities we always took the lead. In the Literary Socie- ties we played a conspicuous part, and in society we always took a nroud and superior position. But the result of our achievements is brought out vividly in the way we dealt with the Binomial Theorem and Quadratic Equations. (Indeed, the intellectual power mani- fested by this Class is so great that even Dr. Moore marvels at its im- mensity.) As a Freshman Class we are glad to say that in everything which we have entered upon, peace and harmony have prevailed, and as summer is near at hand we will soon lay aside our books, and our experience as Freshmen will remain only as members of a happy and prosperous year among pleasant com- panions. When autumn calls us back again, may not one link be missing from the golden chain which has been forged, but may every member return with re- newed determination, and as Sopho- mores may we never be found idle, but always pressing forward " towards the mark of the prize of the high calling, " as it is in Sophomoredom. 58 Law Class.

W ith the assistance of several members, Judge T ler was finalh ' removed froni the chair and tlu ' President-elect blush- ingl - took hi SL ' at.

The Sheriff was ordered to clear the court-room of all minors, and after John McXair had been removed, the docket was examined and found to contain the following cases : The Class vs. Phil ix. Grice, fraud- ulent concealment of ignorance. The com])lainants averred that they had been Avantonly deceived into thinking defend- ant a person of su])erior mental ability, and that his bearing and attitude have been such as to mislead and deceive the most skeptical, but that on divers occa- sions it has Ijcen shown and demon- strated that said defendant is not what he avers himself to be — to-wit. a per- son of exceptional lep ' al acquirements and mental ability, but. on the contrary, he is of weak and unbalanced mind, and would petition the honorable court that he be so adjudged and a commission ac- cordingly appointed. 62 The Class vs. James C. Tally, gen- eral nuisance. The bill complained that the defend- ant did and still continues to act fool- ishly, thoughtlessly and childishly, prep- ping with each and every member of said class, much to the annoyance and against the dignity of said members, and prayed the tender consideration of the court to protect the complainants from acts of the said offender, and such other relief be granted against the said de- fendant as in equity and good conscience may appear. The Class vs. Jno. A. Cooper, disor- derly and riotous conduct. The Class vs. Raynor Norquist, ma- licious, unjustifiable singing, and other- wise disturbing the peace. The Class vs. h.

After these cases had been disposed of, an indictment was returned against White for answering a question in Class, but, as it was his first offense, the Judge was inclined to be lenient.

" " On the twenty-fifth of September. 1907, there appeared many quaint and curious faces on the Colleg e Campus. As a result of the entrance examination which they had taken, many of them, entered the Senior Preparatory. These with the old pupils who had passed their examinations in the Junior Pre- paratory made a large class. It was easy to distinguish in the chapel between the old and new pupils. The old pupils had a pleasant sense of scornful superiority, as they had all the experience of College life; but the new ones had the appearance of homesick- ness and a certain awe in the presence of the old pupils. However, under the influence of their class-mates, the new ones gradually became familiar with the scenes and faces around them, and their homesickness ceased. There were about sixty members of the Class, and it has been regarded as one of the best Senior Preparatory classes in the past years. After Christ- mas a few of them " dropped out, " but the number was more than replaced by the new men that entered. About this time we began to feel proud of our Class, and our earnest Professors; for Senior Prep, is the foundation of all the college classes. In due time this Class had its organization, officers were elect- ed, class colors were chosen, and a mot- to adopted. Having taken great interest in lit- erary lines, we neglected foot-ball. Nev- ertheless, we still bear the honor gained in the contest last year for the silver cup. We organized a base-ball team which did justice to us all on the field and bids fair to be the champion in the near future. In the literary societies we have done great work. Each Friday evening the programme announced two or three members of our Class to discuss the subject for the occasion. It is therefore destined that the world shall never have again such men as are to graduate in the year of 1912 from grand old Millsaps.

The Galloway Literary Society. 9 The Galloway Literary Society was organized in November of eighteen hun- dred and ninety-two. It has ever been the purpose of its members to uphold our motto, " Know thy onoortunity. " In the many years of our history the present session will undoubtedly prove to be the most successful. We are well represented in every College class, and even among those people known as " Preps " you will find some whose high- est ambition is to be true and lo3 ' al Gal- loways. Our meetings are held in a commodious hall on the third floor of the main building, and are called to order promptly at eight o ' clock every Friday evening, when we go through a regular program, consisting of a declamation, an oration, a regular debate, an irregular debate, and an impromptu debate, after which we attend to the business peculiar to all deliberative bodies of ur class. All meetings are open to the public, ana we are always glad to receive visitors. In April or May of each session we hold a special meeting in the College Chapel for the purpose of celebrating our aniversary. Our anniversary exercises this session took place on the first Fri- day night in May. The speakers were Orator, Basil F. Witt, Anniversarian, J. Cude Rousseaux, and Outside Speaker, George P. Hurst, from Oxford, Mis- sissippi. During the winter term we usually engage in a public debate with our sis- ter Society, The Lamar. Heretofore we have w on our share of these debates, and, of course, expect to continue to do so in the future. Some time during Commencement there takes place " the big event " of literary society life, the Commencement Debate. Representatives from the two Societies meet in open com- bat and strive gloriously to prove what is and what is not. Last Commencement the Galloway debaters, Terrell and llul- lock, after a hard struggle, succeeded in convincing the Lamar debaters that the United States should neither own nor operate railroads; and this Commence- ment we expect Moore and Welch to force the representatives from The La- mar to admit that the Philippine Islands should be retained. Although we hold many elections eacii session, we have never yet allowed the least evidence of politics to be manifested within our hall, for we realize that it is literary development that we are seek- ing, and not practice in ])olitical methods. Our elections are always conducted in the best of feeling, and our officers al- ways render fair and impartial service. In every phase of College life outside the society hall, Galloway men hold re- sponsible positions. Since our Y. M. C. A. was first organized it has never had a President who was not a Galloway, and the other offices have usually been filled by men from our Society. We have sent more successful contestants to the Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest than any other literary society in this State. We have also sent a large per cent of the speakers who have represented our Col- lege at the summer Chautau(]uas. On the CoUc ' ian stafif we have always had several men, and have ever been well represented on the Bohasiiela staff. Looking into the future, we can see nothing but success for our Society. So long as its members support the Consti- tution and perform their duty, the Soci- ety will continue to move onward and onward, and to occupy more and more important places in the life of Millsaps College.

The l,aniar Literary v ocictw which was or " anizcd diiriiii;- the first session of Millsaps, has ever since been an im- portant factor of our College. Its men have always been found at the front wherever honors were to be had or med- als to be taken. For the last four years the representatives to the State orator- ical contests and half of those sent by the College to the various Chautauqua contests have been Lamar men. And of the other honors we have gotten our share. But the history of the past years has already been written, and we are con- cerned here with only that of the present session. We can truly say that this has been the most successful year in our history. Early in the session our broken ranks were replenished by a goodly set of men cajiable of upholding our proud banner. The Facult} ' selected one of our members, Mr. C. H. Kirkland, to represent the College at the State con- test, and another, ? Ir. T. L. IJailey, for the W ' hitworth Chautauc|ua. .Vt the beginning of the session there was some evidence of i olitics in the So- ciety, but this is only a necessary feature if we are to get parliamentarv training. No one, however, let his " party " ties interfere with the welfare of the Society, and a representative crowd of men were elected to serve in the following capac- ities : Anniversarian, C. H. Kirkland ; ()rat M-. W. S. Ridgeway ; Commence- ment debaters, T. I,. l ' .aile - and 1), . Zeix ' rnick ; .Mid-Session debaters, J. L. Sunn-all and R. J. MuUins. Jeff Col- lins with his colleague from the Gallo- wav Society represent the College in the ] lillsaps-Southern debate lo be lield here April 17th. With these men to rep- resent us. we have no doubt that our record will ])e upheld, and that we shall a .j:ain convince our friends the Gallo- ways that they have the wrong views of the subjects in the coming debates.- Throughout the year the work of the Society has been characterized by wise and im])artial dictation from those elected to preside, and a spirit of determination and loyalty on the part of its members. It is true some of us have been inclined at times to " cut, " ' some have even strayed off to a show, but this, we are ]iroud to sav, is not characteristic of all our mem- bers. Only one time have we failed to have our regular meeting, and that time it was to spend a delightful evening w ' ith our charming friends, the Belhaven girls. With a majority of the honors to our credit in the past, and the present enthu- siasm antl determination of our members, who always have in mind the motto, ' A ' o palma sine laborc, " there is no danger that the Lamar Literary Society will not continue in its onward and up- ward march towards the lofty ideals to which its founders aspired.

These meeting ' s are usualK ' eonducted hv one of the students, l)tit sometimes we have an address bv some member of the P ' ac- ult " or one of the ministers from town, who are alwa s i lad to help us in any way that they can. ( )n the first Friday nij ' ht in each month we hold a business meeting " , at which re]:)orts are made by the various committees and officers, and other necessary business is attended to. Thes? meetings are full of interest, and are generallv well attended. About the middle of March in each session a revival is Indd under the auspices of the .Associa- tion, and we are glad to sa ' that our revival services are a source of great blessings to the entire student body. The meeting of this session was con- ducted bv Rev. Charles Lane, of At- lanta. Cicorgia. Diu ' ing the Christmas holida- ' S del- egates are sent to the Southwest Stu- dents ' Conference, wdiich convenes for about ten days at Ruston, Louisiana. The delegates meet, while there, the leaders in the " . ] f. C. .V. work m North America, and thev ahvavs return to College filled with new enthusiasm to carry on the work for which our As- st)ciation stands. Those sent from our College this session were: . nder on. lUiiley. lirooks, Gi ' ger. Henderson, I iolmes, Magee, Aloore, Stennis, and A ' elcli. . 11 tliese men took actue ])arts in tile Conference W ' vOrk, and were great- ly benefited 1) - being th- ' re. We expect to send a much larger numhjr next ses- sion, although our (leleg;aliiiu at the last two Conferences has been larger than that of any other visiting College. The work of our Association is man- aged by the 1 ' resident and the other menil)ers of his cabinet. The cabinet is composed of the President. ' ice-Pres- ident, Secretary, Treasurer, and the chairmen of the following committees: 1 lan(ll)ook. Advertising, Devotional. Fi- nance, Membership, Reception, Bible vStudy. and Afissionary. The President, ice-President, Secretary, and Treasur- er are elected by the Association at the business meeting in Februarv and serve for one year. The committeemen are appointed by the President. Each com- mittee has its own si ecial work to do, and it is upon the work of these com- mittees that the success of the Associa- tion is to a great extent de]:)sndent. The Handbook Committee edits and ]mblishes a neat leather-bound informa- tion and guide-book, wdiich is distributed at the o])ening of the session. This lit- tle book ma - he used as a memoran- dum and it also is an index to the va- rious business houses in tow n. The Ad- vertising Committee advertises the spe- cial meetings of the Association, and 86 helps to arouse interest in our work in those who are not Christians. The De- votional Committee makes arrangements for all meetings to be provided with leaders, and has charge of all services. The work of collecting the yearly dues ($1.50) and raising monev to meet all extra expenses falls upon the Finance Committee, of which the Treasurer of the Association is chairman. It is the duty of the Membership Committee to see every new student at the opening of the session and urge him to join the Association. The Social Committee makes arrangements for an annual re- ception, which is given to the new stu- dents on the second Friday night after the opening day. By far the most important of all the committee are the Bible Study and the Missionary Committees. The work of the first is to hold a special meet- ing early in the session, at which the work of systematic Bible studv is presented and an enrollment is taken of those who wish to take the course. Those who enroll are divided into groui)s of eight or ten and are pro- vided with good leaders. They meet every Sunciay afternoon at 2 o ' clock, and spend an hour in the stud ' - of some special part of the Bible. The Mi ssion- ary Committee also holds a special meet- ing and presents its work. Those who take mission study are arranged in small groups with leaders. During this ses- sion we have been fortunate in having with us Dr. La Flanime, a returned missionary from India. He gave us several thrilling lectures on missionary work, and so intense was his enthusi- asm that he caused five of our students to recognize and accept their call to the foreign mission field. While Dr. La Flamme was with us a fund of about $40.00 was given by members of the Association to be used in purchasing books dealing with mission work. These books have been secured and have been placed in one of the alcoves of the Library, where they may easily be found by any who cares to read them. r. A. S. 87 Preachers ' League. » » OFFICERS. J.

The present year has been a notable one in Athletics; it has seen our inter- collegiate appearance in basket - ball, base-ball, and tennis, and has demon- strated our ability to hold our own with other Colleges in these lines of sport. Our entrance into the intercollegiate arena has also served to remove the stigma of a lack of College spirit, which has so often been laid against us. The Professors that attempted to teach their classes during the tennis match with the University, and the inhabitants of Jackson and vicinity on All Fools ' Day and the evening after the Tulane game will bear ample testimony to the pres- ence among us of this form of energy. The year is also noted for the adoption of a scholarship requirement for partici- pation in Athletics, and for the birth of a new athletic organization, the Croquet Club, which, however, we regret to an- nounce, while yet in its infancy, sus- tained an unhappy demise, due, it is believed, to the lack of proper nour- ishment. Only three class foot-ball teams were organized. After a number of futile efforts and two unofficial defeats at the hands of the Freshmen, the Juniors suc- cumbed and left the two lower classes to struggle for the championship. The Freshman team was composed of light- er, faster material than the Sophomores and rounded into form more quickly than their opponents ; they were thus enabled to take the first two games by the scores of 9 — o and 11 — o. The scor- ing was done by Jones and Boo es, the former making a touchdown in each game and the latter a field goal in the first and a touchdown in the second. In the meantime, under the efficient coaching of Mr. W. F. Murrah and the stimulating influence of that promised repast at the Presidential mansion, the Sophomores developed a defense against which the Freshmen were unable to make steady gains, and the third game ended o — o. In the fourth and last game, after Galloway had made a touch- down from a blocked forward pass, the Sophomores by constant hammering on the opposing right tackle shoved Wasson over the line with but thirty seconds left to play. Neither side kicked the goal and the score remained 5 — 5. For the Class of igii the steadiest and most efficient players were Adams, J. C, Galloway, and Jones ; Boggs handled kicks cleanly and got his own nunts off in good form, but was weak on inter- ference ; it is to the credit of the Fresh- men ends that their opponents made no attempts to circle them. The best work for the Class of 1910 was done by Baird, who ran his team well and played in the same fashion himself, and by Terrell and Davies, both of whom played a hard game throughout. Rick- etts also put up a plucky game at left end. Owing to the fact that only four official games were played, the Fresh- men failed to win the cup, but with a percentage of 1,000 to their opponents 000, they are justly entitled to the cham- pionship of the College — they not only beat every team two games, but were themselves unbeaten. The interest in basket-ball has been desultory; Manager Guinn proved to be faithful and efficient, but succeeded in arousing only slight enthusiasm for the winter sport. A step forward, however, was taken in placing it upon the inter- collegiate basis, and next year will doubtless see still further advance. The first game with Mississippi College was played in Clinton and lost; on the fol- lowing Monday, on her own " -rounds, Millsaps played desperately to retrieve her defeat, but failed by the score of 109 14 — 9- Miirrah in the first p ame, C. II. Kirkland in the second, and T C. Kirk- land in both games played well, and the cdTitests showed plainly that we have the material for a winning team if we are only willing to underpin the neces- sary training — without which it is use- less to expect to win. This is the first year that the Col- lege has played intercollegiate base-ball, and its auspicious beginning augurs well for the years to come. The season opened with an interclass series in which the Freshmen were overwhelm " - - vic- torious. From the players in these games Coach Hall of the Cotton States League picked a team that has already proved its mettle by defeating Tulane two out of three games. Reed, Clark, and Galloway pitched creditable ball throughout the series, and in the last game, which was won by the narrow margin of 2 — i, the entire team nlayed like veterans. In this game Jones de- serves especial mention not only for his timely hit, which scored all of our runs, but for the conception and skillful ex- ecution of a double play in the ninth inning that snatched victory from the very jaws of defeat and turned loose upon the city a mob of howling colle- gians, who proceeded to take complete possession and to demonstrate in con- crete fashion, " That ' twas a famous victory. " The Association is glad to take this opportunity of cordially thanking the immortal John Armstrong for the cour- tesies and aid that he extended with so liberal a hand upon that memorable occasion. Under the direction of Professor H. T. Moore, the Tennis Club has en- joyed a healthy activity, which has man- ifested itself in the improvements added to the courts and in the arrangement of a tournament with the University of Mississippi. Although Millsaps lost the contest by the close score of 6 — 4, 2 — 6, 1 1 — 9, she has the satisfaction of hav- ing played the best game that the Uni- versity met with during her tour of the State. In the number of games won the two teams were equal, and three times during the last set was Millsaps within one point of victory. Baird played a steady game, and had Collins been able to use his own racket, there is little doubt but that there would have been a different tale to tell. Gymnasium classes have been held regularly throughout the year and Mr, Addington has proved himself a com- petent instructor. A special class was formed for instruction in tumbling, etc., which has reflected credit upon itself and its leader. With the rapid growth of the College along various lines the need of a modern gymnasium, ade- quately equipped with apparatus and bathing facilities, has become a neces- sity. Physical cultures will never be- come of importance in college life until this demand is met ; it is useless to ex- pect students to take an interest in this form of athletics until better equipment is provided.

C, ' 07. 164 Captain Jack ' s Whale. 9 » » " I - I ' inqn! hoys. " said the C ' ii)tain ; " I " (. ' fi)Iln vc(I tlie sea tin- ny[y cars, and 1 nrvcr was really tri iilcncd hut that one time. " I saw that Captain jack Smith had a st()r - upon his mind, and was anxinus to get it off, and as I was equall - anx- ious to hear him, 1 therefore said: " How was that, Captain? can ' t you tell us the story? " " ' ell. " responded the Captain, " it ' s nijiii onto fifteen years ago, and I haven ' t as ;-ood a memory as I once had. hut 1 will ive the thin ' - as near as I can. " ou must understand that 1 was once in the whaling line, and that T sailed out from Xew York in command of one of the tinest ships in the trade, the " SunMower, " of which I held a half share. We were hound to the North Atlantic, and my crew had heen shipped upon shares — that is, instead of wages they were each to receive a ])ortion of the tishing as payment. Manv of them were men that had heen out with me before, and with whom I was verv pop- ular. It was this popularity. I suppose, that led to a resolve on the part of the men that each should forego his share, and that the first whale taken should be wdiolly mine. After this resolve a bright lookout was kept, and I believe that every man was as anxious to see the first fish as though it was to be his own propertv. ' Ca])tain jack ' s whale " was common talk with them, and its value as freely- talked of a though we already had him aboard in oil. " At last one day the lookout at the masthead shouted, ' There she blows ! ' and in an instant the ship was a scene of life and bustle. The small boats on right and left were lowered, and into one of them I sprang, determined to have a hand in killing the first fish. ' ' ' Now then, bo}-s, pull awav for Captain jack ' s whale ! ' shouted the steersman of my boat, and the boy.-, with a cheer, struck out for the fish, which was somewhat less than five miles away. We were soon v with it, and I acted as harpooner, striking the iron deep into the fish, and petting a hold not easily shaken off. Away he went like a flash, but. to our astonish- ment, he sto])ped not more than four hundred yards oft " , and lay perfectly still. ' e hesitated for a moment, and then pulled towards him. Scarcely had we made half a dozen strokes when the monster turned and with fearful speed came directly down upon the boat. There was no time to think, for almost before a minute had elapsed, he w as upon us with wide-stretched jaws and barelv leaving the twelve men time to throw themselves into the sea, he crushed the boat into atoms. The other boat came directly to our aid. and, the i66 whale swimming leisurely away, wc were picked up without the loss of one man. " All this had been seen b - the look- outs on board the ship, and another boat was sent at once to our relief. Al- though some of the men were rather frightened at the monster, yet I had determined to tackle him again. There- fore when the boat came up we started for a second attack, and soon arrived within about a hundred yards of him and tried to get around to his side for another blow. Each effort we made we would find him directly in front of us. There was nothing to do but to pull straight on ; no sooner did he per- ceive this than, with a dash as before, he came at the leading boat. This time we didn ' t even have warning enough to throw ourselves overboard, and be- fore we could even think the boat was cracked like a nut, and two of my men were crushed in the monster ' s jaws. As before, we were picked up by the other boat, and now. with three boats ' crews in one, we returned to the shin, though every one of us was full of revenge. " We pulled steadily on, and were soon on board, but nothing woulcf sat- isfy the men but to chase the monster to death. We had scarcely gone a mile when I saw the whale coming di- rectly towards the ship. He came with- in fifty yards of the ship, leisurely swimming around us and occasionally stretching his vast jaws, as thoueh he intended to swallow us whole. I watched him carefully, and even when he svvam away I was not satisfied, for before I could realize the fact, I saw him turn suddenly and with the sjiced of a steamer come directly u])on the ship. Me struck us about the middle; of the shi]-) with a fcjrce like the shock of an earth(|uake. Every timber in the ship cracked and the topmast fell down upon the deck. I was terrified beyond all description, for I knew that the blow had destroyed the shin, and that in less than an hour all hands would be at the mercy of the monster. 1 only watched long enough to see him swim away from us once more, possibly for another attack, and then ran below. It was just as I thought : there was a hole big enough to admit the body of a man a few feet below the water-line, and the ship was sinking. " There was nothing for us to do but to get out the remainino boats and, se- curing as many provisions as we could, to leave the ship to its fate and meet our own with the monster, who un- doubtedly awaited us. We had hardly time to save what few things we did, when the good ship went down, and our crew were upon the broad ocean in three small boats. " My story ends here, for the whale was satisfied with his destruction of the ship and did not show himself again, and the third day aft?r we were picked up by an English ship and landed at Liverpool. " It was a good while ago, but I ' 11 bet that not one man that was on board the good ship " Sunflower " will ever for- get Captain Jack ' s whale. " S. E. Williamson. 167 The Doctor ' s Boy. It was the afternoon of the first day of April. Dr. Price had finished writing questions on the Ioit black- board at one end of his lecture-room and had taken his seat on the rostrum. Every man of us Sophomores was busy with the task at hand, a Chemistry test. For about fifteen minutes all had been quiet, when presently there was a rap on the door. The doctor answered and we could hear him as he talked witn someone just outside. Soon he re- entered the room, and, mounting the rostrum, said : ' ' Attention, please, I will have to dismiss the class and " " o look after my little boy. He has not re- turned home from school. The class is dismissed. " Having having said this, the Doctor hastily left the room with a look of anxious concern on his face. If I may not say we Sophomores were gratified at the turn things had taken, we were at least in no melancholy mood, as we surged out of Science Hall and dispersed, some of us turning to the right and some to the left, as we went to our respective boarding-places. Few of us felt that there was any grounds for uneasiness as to the Doc- tor ' s boy. I went to my room arm-in-arm with Frank Henry, my closest chum. Frank boarded in town, a mile and a half from the College, but he spent a Toodly parr of his time with me in my room at the dormitory. So we walked along. Frank turned to me and asked : " What do you suppose has haooened to the Doctor ' s kid? " " Oh ! I suppose he is playing along the way like you and I used to do when we were his age, " I answered. " I hope that is true, and very likely it is, " said Frank, " but I can ' t help feel- ing uneasy about him when I think how the crimes committed by those ' black hand ' devils have been increasing of late. I saw an account in this morn- ing ' s paper where, in the southern part of the State, a child had been stolen and a demand for several thousand dol- lars made for its safe return. I guess if there are any of the ' black hand ' in this city, the Doctor ' s money appeals to them. Eh, Tom? " " Well I should say! " I replied; and giving Frank a mischievous look, added : " By the way, old fellow, don ' t you sup- pose that the Doctor ' s money might be made to account for a part of your af- fection for his daughter? " Frank blushed deeply, for he was one among the many who had fallen a victim to this fair young co-ed ' s charms ; but he was game and not ver-v- easily teased. " Oh ! you can knock me, " he an- swered, " but you know that dc - down in your heart you can ' t blame me for loving that girl. Now, honest, can vou Tom? " I answered " No, " for really I could not ; and here we dropped the conver- sation, for by this time we had reached my room. Tossing our books aside, we were soon into our base-ball clothes and away to the athletic park, where foi awhile we forgot everything else in our enthusiasm for the game. About sundown we again arrived at the dormitory and learned there, to our surprise and sorrow, that Rupert Price had not been found. The police had searched the town and a neighboring swamp, but no trace of him could be i6S found. Mrs. Price and Dorothy were said to be so stricken with grief that they were inconsolable. How Frank and I and the rest of the fellows did wish that there was something we could do to help ! But, as there wasn ' t, the alter- native was simply to wait and to hope that everything would turn out all right. It was almost dark when Frank left the dormitory for town, nevertheless he decided not to take a car. He had sel- dom ridden since the base-ball season opened, as he had found that the walks to and from town had kept him in good trim for base-ball. His way led by Dr. Price ' s home, and as he passed by he paused. Amid moans and sobs he could hear Mrs. Price cry out repeatedlv in bitter anguish : " Oh, my baby, my little baby boy ! can ' t someone find my baby ? " He could hear Dorothy crying too. How it pierced his very heart! Some good ladies were trying to comfort them, but Frank knew well, and pain- ful the knowledge was to him, that for them there would be no surcease of sor- row until the " kid " was found. When he passed on, tears were in his eyes and a prayer was on his lips : " Lord help me, or some of the men, to find the ' kid ' to-night. " Afterwards when Frank looked back over the events of that night and re- membered the words of prayer that he had uttered, he was sure that his faith was pretty weak when he uttered them. But who can blame him if he had doubts as to whether his prayer would be answered? The probabilities were certainly against its being answered. The fact that no trace of the lost boy had been found led to the conclusion that he had been stolen. If this con- clusion were true, it was certainly not probable that one wary enough to kid- nap the boy was so stupid as to allow him to be retaken that night. But if Frank ' s faith was weak, to balance this he had one strong point. He was in earnest about the prayer that he had made and would have risked his own life quickly enough to bring about an answer to it. When he had i)assed the Doctor ' s several hundred vards, he sat down on the grass to think, reluctant simply to go to his room and await de- velopments, yet totally at a loss to know what he could do that would be of any avail. While we leave Frank thus meditat- ing, I must enlighten the readers of this story a bit with respect to the myste- rious disappearance of Rupert Price. About a half-mile from the nblic school building in the direction of the College was a small shop, not much larger than an electric street-car, where for some months a dark-skinned, black- eyed Italian had been keeping a fruit- stand. Rupert, as he passed here daily going to and from school, had attracted the attention of this Italian, who, having found out who the boy was, had watched eagerly yet warily for a chance to kid- nap him. Finally his opportunity had come, and the very simplicity of his tactics had saved him from susoicion. Having seized Rupert, he had hastily put a handkerchief in his mouth, tied him " hog fashion, " and placed him in a chest in the rear end of his shop. Then he had carelessly resumed his duties, expecting to carry Rupert to the " Ital- ian quarter " that night when he went to supper. How long Frank sat there on the grass beside the sidewalk he was un- able afterwards to say. So burdened was his mind that he was heedless of the passing time. He watched the new moon rise, and with something of sat- isfaction saw the clouds shut out her rays from the earth. " A bright night would be almost mockery, " thought he, " when so many hearts are sad. " His reverie was at last interrupted by ap- proaching foot-steps. The figure of a man carirying something on his back could be dimly discerned coming up the sidewalk. Frank decided to lie qui- 169 etly by and escape the observation of the passer - by, and would have suc- ceeded in doing so had not something unexpected happened. As has been stated above, it was the first day of April. Some mischievous boy had, for a Fools ' Day trick, placed a rail across the walk just a few feet beyond where Frank had turned aside on the grass. The passing man, when almost opposite Frank, tripped over this rail and fell sprawling, as he fell losing his hold on the sack he was carrying. Frank sprang to his feet in utter surprise, and simultaneously with his getting up the clouds shifted a bit and the silver rays of the moon illuminated the scene. For a brief second he glanced at what was before him : the dark figure of a man lying at full length, and to one side a small boy bound so securely that he could hardly wiggle. Instantly the sit- uation dawned upon him and he emitted a yell for aid. The amazed Italian, probably thinking that he had been waylaid, was no sooner down than up, but before he could make away Frank had seized him. For a moment they grappled together, but Frank was no match for his opponent. The Italian threw him hard on the concrete pave- ment, and that was the last he re- membered. When he awoke he was in bed. In- voluntarily he put his hand to his head. " What hurts you? " a sweet voice asked. He opened his eyes and saw a face he had often seen in his dreams. It was Dorothy Price ' s. " My head, " he answered. Then he remembered it all. " Did they catch the man? " he asked. " Yes; he is safe in jail, " she replied. " The policeman came up just in time to save you. You are awfully brave. " Ford Bufkin. 170 Afterward. And now cometh the end ! With how much meaning is fraught that sim- ple httle combination of three letters ! The end — of a session ' s horrid hard- ships, but also of a season ' s pleasant association ; the end of midnight vigils with Horace and Mathematics, but al- so moonlight surveys with telescope and co-eds; the end of zeros in the hard, drowsy lecture-room, but also of tete-d-tetcs with the sweet, pretty co- eds. How the word conveyeth both sor- row and gladness, both pleasant mem- ories and sorrowful reflections ! Not this year hath our Heavenly Fa- her removed one of our student number from us death ; how glad we be ! But into the midst of our worthy instruct- ors hath He sent the angel who bear- eth the sickle, and that sickle hath cut away the life of our beloved teacher; how sorrow-stricken we be ! As we stood o ' er that manly form in the man- tle of death, with a heavenly peace up- on his face, tho ugh it was cold and set in stillness, how our hearts did murmur, if our lips could not utter, the prayer that our lives might be as noble as his, that our characters might be like his of oaken strength, that our faith in the Deity and in the Bible might be as his — like a little child ' s ! And how our hearts yearned to express our sympathy for those whom he left behind ! May God bless them and tenderly care for them ! r.ul we will not be sad; for he liveth with the living Christ. And he had been interested in the revival. Oil, the memory of that re- vival is to many of us as dear as the Christmas holidays ! It was the greatest meeting that we have seen at Millsaps College. God bless Brothers Lane and Anderson and Jones ! They prayed and wrought so faithfully that thirty-seven of our companions who have become en- deared to us in class-room and on cam- pus decided after prayer and battle to fight the Christian warfare. Shall we soon forget the happy night that we prayed till nearly two o ' clock — till from just ten Christians in a room in the " shacks " the number had swelled to twenty ? Ah ! this year, together with more abundant Athletics and College spirit, hath been filled with life-and-death is- sues, with large enterprises. Just as we can ne ' er forget our first series of three with Tulane, and the new sign " 2 to i ' that each automobile, carriage, and wagon chauffeur had concocted for him, so we shall not soon forget the launch- ing of the effort to build on this cam- pus a Y. M. C. A. building. Have not other colleges as small as wis under- taken and accomplished this? Aye — and zvc can, if we will! But the end draweth nigh: fraught with sorrow and fraught with joy it is 171 here. Shall they both not be pleasant? Not one mark of the bruise from a stone in the way, not one gray hair that hath come while we pored over mid- night study, not one pleasant evening with our fairer, gentler friends, but has served to make men and fighters of us ; for, optimistic at heart, we would be not tame book-worms, but positive com- panions of men to the amelioration of all. And when each of us who now are students hath come not to the end of a session in College, but to the end of life, may it have been a useful life, overflow- ingly full of an unselfish love for God and men, and may he thus end his days in peace ! " I was ever a fighter, so — one fight more. The best and the last! I would hate that Death bandaged my eyes, and forbore. And bade me creep past. No! let me taste the whole of it. fare like my peers The heroes of old. Bear the brunt, in a minute pay glad life ' s arrears Of pain, darkness, and cold. " By . C.
