" " " " " iL) ELIEVING that the development of Christianity and the dissem- j | ination of right principles could be best brought about by means (o of Christian education, the founders of Monmouth College suited the action to the thought, and in 1857 the College was a realit}-. Born of thought and prayer, it has gradually grown in power until to-day it stands second to none among western institutions. The careful management of trustees and senate have done much toward building up the College. The professors and instructors have nobly performed their duty. The faithful work of Dr. Wallace stands to-day a monument, grander by far than any of marble or granite. He is sleeping in the " City of the Dead. " The work which he began was taken up bj r Dr. J. B. McMichael. Youthful fancy had led J. B. into carriage making and various trades, until with grip in hand he found himself at college. After being graduated at Westminster College in 1859, he taught for a short time at the Greenville Academy, Pa. Entering Xenia Theological Seminarj- he graduated in 1S62. Sixteen years of pastoral work and five years of work in the Xenia Theological Seminary developed his intellectual as well as his ph3 ? sical nature. While age has whitened his locks, success has followed his footsteps. Prof. Wilson, the oldest of the instructors in the college, was professor of Latin from ' 61 to ' 64, of mathematics from ' 64 to ' 74, and since then of Greek. He is characterized b3 ' pushing things vigorously. Side by side with him in length of service stands Prof. Rodgers. He was graduated from Miami University, Oxford, O., in ' 56. In ' 64 he took charge of the preparatory department, and in ' 74 was elected to the chair of mathe- matics. He delights in hunting during the summer and in accurate calcu- lations during winter. . Miss Winbigler, who has served as mathematical instructor for twelve years, was graduated from Monmouth High School in ' 72, and in ' 73 she entered Monmouth College. In ' 77 she was graduated from the scientific department with first honors and left college an alumna of A. B. L. Now comes ye Hebraists and Latinists. Prof. McMillan has made rapid advancement. Graduating- from the Indiana State University in ' 74, he taught three years in Smith ' s Grove College, Ky., was Superintendent of Ce- darville, Ohio, school for three years, and five years Principal of Xenia Hig-h School. In ' 86 he was elected principal of the preparatory department, in ' 89 to the chair of Latin and Hebrew, in ' 90 Vice-President of Monmouth Col- lege. We need but to know him to realize his abilit} T . Prof. Bryan, the youthful member of the faculty, was graduated from Vin- cennes University, Ind., in ' 85, was for three years Principal of the Arkansas City High School. Completing a special course, was graduated in ' 89 from In- diana State University, and the same year became principal of the preparatory department of Monmouth College. He believes in digging until you get a precious golden store. Prof. Graham was in his youth a farmer. Graduating from Monmouth College in ' 70, he studied theology at Monmouth and Xenia Seminaries, and was pastor of the Biggsville congregation for thirteen years. In ' 86 he was called to the chair of social science. Efficient, strong-minded and eminently fit for his position. Prof. Maxwell is a native of the Emerald Isle, and therefore ineligible for President of the United States. He began his educational preparation in Amitj - College, la. ; thence in Johns Hopkin ' s University. He was for several years a country school teacher, and one year principal of Mt. Ayr High School. His aim is to make the chemical department second to none in the state. Miss Patterson, age forty-eight, taught in the Steubenville, O., Public Schools for fourteen years, two years in Beaver Seminary, Pa., ten years pro- fessor of English Literature and German at Westminster College, spent two years abroad studying the German language. In ' 89 she accepted the posi- tion as professor of English Literature, German and Lady Principal of Mon- mouth College. Miss Calvin, of Meadville, Pa., was graduated from the classical depart- ment of Allegheny College in ' 82. She took a two years ' course in elocution at Boston and has been at Chautauqua under the instruction of Prof. ' s Cum- nock, Anderson and others of high merit. In ' 86 she became professor of elo- cution at Monmouth College. This department can look down from its high place on the ladder of fame and say to our elocutionist, " You have led us up. " Prof. Zartman was graduated from Wooster University of Music, as a pupil of Prof. Karl Merz. He taught two years in Pleasantville Academy, Ohio, and two years in Emporia, Kas. In ' 89 he came to Monmouth College. His every effort has been crowned with success. Where is there another Faculty so honored and beloved by the student as this? A METAMORPHOSIS, The Freshie cometh forth to school in a suit of rusty jeans, And his slouch hat at an angle on his dusty forehead leans; His unblacked shoes with leather strings are tied — as hard as rocks And his ankles gleam resplendent o ' er the rims of woolen socks. II The Senior goeth forth from school as the fortunate elect, In a suit of shining broadcloth, and a lofty beaver decked; His patent leather shoes shine bright — his necktie white as milk, And you can ' t see his ankles, for they ' re out of sight in silk. - £ «£ SENIOR CLASS, ' 92, CLASS OFFICERS.

" Class Yell: To whit, to whit, to whoo. Eighteen hundred and ninety-two. vVUR College is proud of her alumnal roll. With the addition of ' 92 to J the ranks of those who call her our " ■Alma Mater " there will be abundant ground for increased feeling of pride. Though this write- up in the Ravelings will be appreciated, it is by no means a necessary ad- vertisement of our merits. It is not for us to write our own history when others have done it so graphically and truthfully. So I make the following clipping from a well known metropolitan magazine. " Our publication has always felt a deep interest in the work done by the various educational institutions of our land. Their growth and prosperity mean the growth and prosperity of our nation. In a recent tour among prominent western colleges, it was my pleasant duty to investigate the corps of workers in Monmouth College. I stepped from ' No. 6 ' one morning in the early spring and vainly tried to bribe a ' bus driver to pilot me through Police Gazette. 29 the dazzling ' streets. I was urged to wait one week as anelectrical boat was sure to be in operation from the depot to all parts of the city. I did not wait but by severe marching I arrived at nry destination just in time to see the round-up in the chapel. I was met in the hall by a dusky gentleman, who, seeing that my physical proportions were not of an elaborate nature, told me to seek some place of safety as the bell was soon to ring. I betook myself to the gallery. Presently there issued from beneath, volcanic like, an inde- scribable mass of living beings, that with difficulty were disentangled, rear- ranged and assigned to various sections of the room. Now three guards marched to the front, while eight lined up in the rear to prevent any un- timely stampede. For a time I remained unnoticed, but finallj ' some on the east side discovered that the gallerj- had an occupant, and quickly the air was rent with shrieks of ' speech, ' and filled with chalk and paper balls, all of which concentrated at a point uncomfortably near. A threatening an- nouncement from the front silenced the uproar for a time, while I made care- ful observation of those gathered below. The three hundred or more students seemed to be placed in sections, grouped according to looks, intelli- gence and general superiority. This was noticeable as the different divisions filed out. First there arose about fort} 7 on the west side distinguished from those adjacent by the points noted above. Unmistakable signs of genius marked every feature. I saw faces that bespoke eloquently the noted jour- nalist, the renowned judge and the famous pulpit orator. The next section that arose called up unpleasant recollections of my last visit to Sing Sing.t and I pass it by without comment. Even the next division impressed me not more favorably. Their faces told of hopes crushed, of victories not realized, — things that occur often in college life. The next section that filed out pre- sented a variegated aspect, uncouth, inane, no uniformity in color, shape or size. " Gentle reader, we would state that the writer of the above article uncon- sciously, but truthfully describes the various classes of our College. The classes are taken in the order of standing. The apt description applied to the " west side " belongs to the class of ' 92. Our class history is short but momentous. In our " national game " we are pronounced victors. A few unfortunate circumstances cost us the foot ball pennant. Those who wish to make a special study of our class are referred to the following well known works: Morton ' s " Events of Interest, " vol. II, pg. 356- 418; Dudley ' s " Modern Education; " Souder ' s " Among Our Colleges. " By a careful perusal of the works mentioned above a good general idea of the class can be obtained. IHe was in for five years. -«0La.HSS ROLaLa.j BARR, EVA Monmouth, A. B. L.; Class Artist. BISSELL, PRANK A ■ Viola. Philo.; President Annex Co. CHAPMAN, JOSEPH A Boseville.

M. C. ' 93! YO ' OOKING back through the vista of departed ages the alumnus of fifty years ' standing regards his junior j ' ear in college as one of the epochs of his life, one of the brightest periods through which it is alloted to mortal man to pass, the one year above all others that is blessed with hap- piness and blissful contentment. The Prep, with his corduroy pants reaching down hopelessly towards the tops of his cowhide shoes, looks up to the Junior with feelings of awe and admiration. The feeling of disgust with which he regards the bombastic Senior is entirely absent when he looks upon the grace- 33 ful bearing - and easy dig-nit} ' of the Junior. The Freshman, in his joy at having - escaped the thralldom of Prepdom, spends the whole year trying to show Seniors and Professors how little they know. The Soph, has his eye turned longingly toward the Junior row, and anxiously counts the days till he can occupy a place there. The Junior has reached the zenith of his con- ception. All the fullness of college life is his. The Senior looks upon him with a sad, regretful envy. Fathers, mothers, professors and friends vie with each other in doing him honor. All this is doubly true of our present Junior Class. Our past is at least secure. Our trip to Kirkwood, our class spectacles, and our victory over the Freshmen have secured for us a name that will go down through the centuries. Our girls have long had the reputation of be- ing the finest in college. To prove that they are the most progressive we need but refer you to the fact that they were the only ones in college who had sufficient moral courage to give a leap year social. We have in our class six- teen gentlemen and eleven ladies. Ten of the gentlemen are candidates for the ministry, four for the farm, one for medicine, and two for presidents of the United States. Of the ladies in the class seven are candidates for minis- ter ' s wives, three for representatives of congress, and one for an old maid. Our class is further distinguished by containing a man who is destined to be- come one of the leading chemists of our day. " We have also an artist of high repute, and an authority on all subjects relating to political economy. We have one of the best base ball pitchers in the west, and two or three men who have distinguished themselves as members of the College foot ball team. Taking everything into consideration, the Class of ' 93 is a might} ' Class and one of which the College may well be proud. May the fondest dreams of her many admirers be realized, and her future even brighter than her past. " Vive le Junior! ' ' CLASS OF ' 94 COLORS— PALE GREEN AND PINK. Motto: ' ' Qui Proficit non Defecit. " Yell — Hip, hoo! Rip, see! Sumus populi! Hi. ki! Boom, roar! Whoop, lah, ' 941 Of HERE ARE three prominent characteristics of the Class of ' 94: (a) The remarkable and almost supernatural personal beaut} ' of every member, which is indeed strange in so large an aggregation. (b) The still more remarkable ability which has won for our class the supremacy in the campus rush and the forensic platform, with the festive baseball and its second cousin, the elliptical, elongated, leather-encased foot- ball, and has, in fact, eclipsed all previous records. (c) The most extraordinary and incomprehensible modest)- and back- wardness with which we uniformly refrain from speaking of ourselves. Here the historian ' s desire to be emphatic has led him to deviate from the truth. We wouldn ' t have you mention it for the world, but we swiped the rest of the universe last year. To be sure, some grasping - , mean-spirited Seniors and Juniors did get a few of our badges, which our boys shook off in the ra- pidity of motion attendant on the dull, sickening thuds with which we ham- mered the rest of the school. But it was only a day till Jack Glass got them back. Jack is quiet but sure. He letteth not his right hand know what his left hand doeth, but it usually arriveth at its destination with neatness and dispatch. Most boys thought it was mean in us to wear those badges and gloat over a fallen enemy, but it was only our way. And then it must be real painful to all other classes to see ' 94 win the baseball championship, and the football championship, and all those things, but it should be remembered that there are very few classes that have sufficient modesty to stand such suc- cess without becoming conceited. At this juncture we were approached by our poet laureate, who asked with a Beseeching Look for the publication of a short poem on the virtues of the Sophomore class. On his Tearful Assurance that this was only an adaptation of a Well-Known Ballad, and that it could not be sung to the air of " Comrades, " we gave our Reluctant Consent, and our long-haired friend struck his harp and proceeded thusly: O! we are the salt of the earth And the pick of the classes, too: We ' re all of us people of worth, And a right smart better ' n you. Chorus — Sing hey! for the Sophomore cla s, And the sports that are not few: Meloy and Robertson, Campbell and Glass, And Billy McAllister, too. We never have known defeat, Though we never stirred up a fuss; But we always require revenge that ' s sweet, When they try to tramp on us. Chorus — Sing hi! for the class that knocks.

Chorus — Sing, ho! for our girls I say, For our girls so fair and true; And the Junior boys gay can just keep away. Or we ' ll know what to do. Envoi — Sing, ho! for our girls so deft, And the boys who strive to please; But woe to the Junior who getteth left, When he wanteth to go with these. li?r ;- , ' !Tfii l iJi. i if ,;i:7i( A TOUCH DOWN. © ' LASS OF ' 95: COLORS— BRONZE AND WHITE.

Whoop! 7 6 Of] IS STRANGE, most wondrous strange, but truth is stranger than fiction, the history of the Class of ' 95 is to this present time unwritten. No sleepy dreamer has been transported (in his mind) to the famed Mount Olympus, where Mt. Vesuvius, in its deep bass voice, has told him all the gods know of this mighty class. No poet has sung - in verse (whose feet are pig-eon-toed) the wisdom, beauty and chivalry of this class, whose delicate number fourteen ' s are to leave foot prints in the sands of time, as well as in the mud of Monmouth ' s streets. If the world would but wait a decade or two there would be no need of a special history and a special historian for the Freshmen Class. The history of the nation would be their history. But the world will not wait. It has caught the first beam of lightfrom the intellectual stars that are to shine in unequalled splendor. The light appears to have a greenish hue, but when examined through the great College telescope it is discovered to be slightly colored by passing through a translucent laj-er of green grass and hay seed. But ere commencement time arrives this veil will have dissolved and passed away, for they ' ll be Sophs if they do not flunk in too many exams. They will then shine forth with all the grandeur of an out-of-date red necktie, and cause the world to turn its eyes from the dazzling- lig-ht. Of the ancient history of ' 95 we will say little, except that they were, as the little girl said of the earth, made of nothing-. Their present is with us now, and for that reason is of some interest. The " long and short of it " is that they have the tallest and shortest girl in the school. Of all the classes of Monmouth Colleg-e, this class alone honored the " Father of His Country " by observing- the night of his birth. They sallied forth upon a nigfht that reminded one of the Christmas night on which the hero took a moonlight pull, (without the moonlig-ht,) across the Delaware. Once in the banquet hall thoug-hts of previously endured hardships vanished. The groaning tables soon ceased to groan when the signal for attack had been sounded. In less than one hour everything- that was edible had been devoured. Then by a pre-concocted scheme some half dozen, of the class proceeded to ventilate their gas. The pair of Sophs who had by some foul means gained entrance to the hall turned pale, gazed at each other in a dazzled way, and thus the first one spoke: " Such after dinner speeches from Freshes, — a Soph could do no better. " Quoth the second Soph: " It ' s right you are, and I don ' t believe the beasts have ever seen ' high life ' in the city either. Would that some power would endow us with the " hectic imagination " of a Bill Nye, that we might portray to you their future. One fact, at least, is certain, their future lies before them and they will march to victory shouting-: Get out! get out! as sure as you ' re ' live, You ' ve got to make way for ' 95! m$s 39 ©LASS OF ' 96.

' VT IS generally the custom in College Annuals to have the histories of I the four upper classes only. The Senior Preps are not supposed to have Qs a history remarkable enough to appear in an issue of this kind. But the Class of ' 96 is a notable exception to this rule. It has a history, and this history can be summed up in the words of Rome ' s greatest geneneral, " Veni, Vidi, Via ' . ' " _ We have come. When we first arrived at the " Big School " we were naturally a little timid and bashful. Being mostly from the country, our manners were not as polished as they might have been. We were, metaphoricall}- speaking, " Dia- monds in the rough. " The bud of genius was there only waiting for the warm sunshine of College life to burst into full bloom. The Class of ' 95 gave us some friendly advice from the fullness of their experience, which we wisely neglected to follow. ' 94 kindly offered to show us how to " blow your own horn, " but we declined with thanks. ' 93 didn ' t say very much, but they thought a good deal — of our girls. ' 92 very kindly gave a social to which we were invited. Oh, the misery of that night no mortal tongue can tell. Suf- fice to say we finally broke and ran, vowing we would never go again. We have seen. To the outsider College life seems much the same, but to the student five divisions are apparent. The first division is the Seniors with their silk tiles, bluff games, horse laugh and all. The second, the Juniors, noted for their fine ball players and athletes (?). The third, those who in their own language are called Sophs, in ours " Blow iards. " The fourth, the Fresh- men, and the fifth, " nostra firovincia. ' ' ' ' We have conquered. When we entered the College walls in the fall of ' 91, the question was being agitated, " Shall we have foot ball games? " It was decided that we should, and ' 96 now holds the championship. We very naturally felt elated over our victory, and one day in the exuberance of our spirits, we talked a little too loud on our way down stairs from the chapel. The powers that be hurried after us and informed us that we had better desist as we might disturb ' 94 ' s team, who were lying at the point of death, life onlj- being sus- tained by a liberal use of " Mrs. Winslow ' s Soothing Syrup. " On hearing this we promptlj- desisted, but the shock was too much for them. They breathed their last a few da} ' s later. The Coroner ' s verdict was that they died from indulging too heavily in their favorite pastime of " chewing the rag. " So ended the foot ball team of ' 94. The funeral services were con- ducted bj r " Job, " and were very impressive. Before they died they had their pictures taken, so that when they were gone these might be retained as me- mentoes of the dear departed. There is one thing about these pictures which we never quite understood, and that is, the words they have printed on the ball — " ' 94 Champions. " We suppose it means that they were champions of the malady from which the} ' sent in their checks. Our Class is still a success in a social way. We still have our socials, candy-pulls, class prayer meetings, etc., and once i n a while some one gets an invitation to attend a facultj- meeting. But there is one thing which we have never yet tried, and that is moonlight botanizing parties. We leave that to the Freshman Class. One of them remarked to us a few days since that he liked to analyze " Tulips " and " Daisies " better than anj ' thing else. It would be hard to make a Soph believe that. But our history as a Class is just begun. Oh, that we were permitted to un- veil the future. Then we would see the Class of ' 96 standing like the God- dess of Liberty, and sending forth rays of knowledge over the whole earth. But we refrain from telling what rightfully belongs to future historians. The past we know, the future, ' tis but a dream; but we feel safe in saying that the Class of ' 96 will not neglect its opportunities. We believe with Shakespeare that: There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. tKAS- 42 •gLETHEORMJ [J 0GIETY.

These have been marked throughout by the l -—-, , scarcity of performers and the excellence of the performances. The first of the year was the Eccritean declamation contest, for prizes of five and three dollars respectively. It was held Nov. 30th. and won by E. F. Kimmelshue first, and R. G. Smith second. Next came the Philo declamation contest. There were five contest- ants. J. M. Bamford won the first prize of five dollars, and Hiram Nor- cross the second of three dollars. The event of the year is the preliminary contest, which was held March 3rd. There were four contestants, F. D. Findley winning- first place and J. G. Hunt second. Mr. Findlej 7 will therefore represent Monmouth in the in- ter-colleg-iate contest at Champaign next fall. Eccritean essay contest was held March 4th. There were four contest- ants. First prize was won by E. M. Cling-an and second by J. W. Clendennin° Philo Elliott-Cleland oratorical was held April 21st. There were six contestants and Jay Waid ran off with the first prize of ten dollars, while G. F. Niblock captured five dollars and second place. Last but by no means least was the A. B. L. declamation contest, held in Colleg-e Chapel March 28th. Everybody wanted all the girls to get there, but as that couldn ' t be, first place was given to Miss Allie Van Hoore beke and second to Miss Fannie Graham.

In such a soil a very excellent and useful public library has grown up, and become a great attraction and benefit to the students. In 18S6, less than nine 3-ears after white men first settled here, a library for the people of this county was started. This effort was revived in 186S. Mr. W. P. Pressly, one of the oldest and most honored merchants of Monmouth, made it an assured success in 1870. He erected a substantial brick building and deeded it in trust to " The Warren County Library and Reading Room Asso- ciation. " This corporation was formed by citizens of this county to hold and manage property which may be given for this public purpose. The building erected by Mr. Pressly was the first one given for a popular library in this state. He has also provided from interest and rents a constant income for keeping up the building and buying new books. Other gifts have been re- ceived from those whose benevolence has prompted them to help others. It is managed according to the best modern methods, and at present con- tains 15,000 volumes. The books and periodicals are selected with unusual care to meet the actual needs of readers. The excellence of this selection has been again and again commended by those best qualified to judge. The contents of the library are made known and accessible by printed catalogues, by indexes, by quarterly bulletins and by personal guidance. Sources of in- formation are daily looked up for readers on any subject they are investigat- ing. It is now one of the best working libraries in the west. It contains the periodicals and the books, both new and old, which are to-day most in- fluential on the thought, sentiment and action of this living age. The library grows more useful to students each year. It has a steady growth from funds and property now in possession. It receives gifts from public-spirited people whose memory and usefulness will thus live after them. Young and old are always welcome to its reading tables. They are provided with wholesome attractions, which produce the desire to read. They are in- 63 formed on topics of living ' interest. The} ' are assisted in their studies by ac- cess to the living- books of all times. The high standard of this institution is stated by the Chicago Inter Ocean as follows: " We are in receipt of the portly catalog-ue of the Warren County Library. It is now beginning to exhibit the full benefit of an insti- tution on a sound basis. It is used by all classes of people. Its property has been so cared for that not a dollar of its investments has ever been lost. Such libraries thus managed are a blessing- not easily over-estimated. The people of Warren county may well take pride in their library, both for what it has accomplished and the bright outlook for the future. " Second United Presbyterian Church. Presbyterian Church.

The concentration of religious work and the blessings of genial asso- ciation are found in the Christian Union, the largest organization of the College. Such an organization has been co-existent with the College, and its work has been very manifest from the beginning. The students have real- ized that there are seventy-two hours for study and pleasure in each week, and there has been no hesitancy to devote one of these hours to that enjoy- ment, which is more real, ennobling and enduring than all others; the worship of Him " whose we are, and whom we serve. " Greater opportunities for Christian self-culture can nowhere be found. When a student first enters an institution of learning, home associations, home influences, and the home altar are left behind. He finds new environ- ments, his habits and needs must be made to conform to his new circumstan- ces, and the Christian Union is the mould for that transformation. The Membership Committee invites and urges the new student to unite with us. The class welcomes him into the weekly meeting for prayer and scripture study. Here are his new class-mates — his equals. Here many men now eminent for their zeal and piety have offered their first prayer in public and first attempted to seek advice and comfort from companions and impart the same to them. A place for greater work arid more earnest effort is afforded in the Monday evening College prayer meeting, and here he is gladly heard. Here all, students and faculty, meet and unite in the services. The Christian Union is granted honorary representatives in the Y. M. C. A. and Y. W. C. A., and are allowed the privileges of other members, except 67 voting. The question of permanent union with these Associations has been enthusiastically discussed among the students during the past year. The students have heard during the year man} 7 active Christian workers who have brought to their consideration the claims of the Master upon them in the different fields: Mr. J. C. White, Secretary of the Students ' Volun- teer movement; Rev. E. R. Young, of Northern British America; Rev. Hyde, about to sail for India ' ; Mr. Burge; Miss Nichol, a returned mis- sionary; Mr. J. B. Larkin and Miss Carrie Palmer, members of the Students ' Volunteer movement. It is the desire to still more increase the interest during the coming year, and we expect to enjoy the continued and greater blessings that are in store for us. ORATORICAL ASSOCIATION A.

It is a title suggesting many things we need not be ashamed to mention. In the j ' ear 1876 some three or four of the Illinois Colleges formed an Inter-Collegiate Association with the intention of showing their oratori- cal ability. From this humble beginning emanated the Inter-Sta.te Asso- ciation, including the Inter-Collegiate Associations of nine Western states. This system is the most complete College organization of any kind in the United States. It includes about two hundred of the first Colleges in the West. While the eastern Colleges have depended upon sprinters, jump- ers, etc., to arouse the patriotism of their students and to attract the attention of strangers, their Western sisters have for sixteen years done more than this. They have engaged in a system of brain work that brings honor to the victor and renown to the College. The annual contest of the Monmouth branch occurs on the first Tuesday of March. It calls forth the very best effort of all the contestants. More careful work and thoughtful preparation is given to these productions than to any other college exercise. Often it is, that the winning oration is the product of two or three years ' revising and rewriting. This careful kind of work is always evident in the counting up of grades at Inter-Collegiate. The Inter-Collegiate for the year ' 9I- ' 92, was held at Monmouth. Seven contestants, representing seven colleges of Illinois appeared. Mr. Bartlett, of Illinois College, won first honors; Mr. Weston, of Knox, second; Mon- mouth came third. Although not winning a prize, she still maintained her high rank in oratory. The following will show the rank of the different Colleges: COLLEGES. X x — .

" 7 r ONMOUTH College athletes. What an idea? Who are they? What have they done? Where have they gone? The annuals of other Q V._ — - Colleges have described in words of eloquence the success of their athletes. Their runners are fleetest, their tennis players most skillful, their ball nine best organized, their foot-ball team well-muscled and well- managed, and the editors can see for them no equals in the College world. They have fought the battles over, they have told of victories won, they have gazed into the future, and, behind the dim unknown, have discovered for their heroes greater glories yet to come. But what a task is ours! What can we say for Monmouth? Shall we " boom the college " at the expense of truth, and represent to the world a state of things whieh does not exist, or shall we " a round, unvarnished tale deliver, " and say truthfully, " Athletics in Monmouth College is but a name. " Monmouth students have made individual records in the past of which any college should be proud — records which stand as the high-water mark in the Inter-Collegiate contests of the state. They have been men bold as the boldest, strong as the strongest, fleet as the fleetest. They have organized baseball teams which have been pennant winners. How we did yell when 85 they came back from Champaign, I. C. champions of ' 89. How proudl}- we marched from the depot with them under the leadership of the dear departed Prof. Wier. And the old college song, " Here ' s to Monmouth College, drink her down, drink her d own, " touched a responsive chord in the heart of every student as it rose that night on the midnight air, led by the beautiful tenor of the manager, augmented by the first bass of the catcher, and taken up by the hoarse voice of a hundred admiring followers, while the pale moon looked down in silent wonder, and the poor, long-suffering citizen groaned in spirit, and the dusky constable told us, " You boys mus ' stop dat noise. " Two years afterward they went to Bloomington, nine of the best ball players M. C. had ever had. They were playing the nine from Jacksonville, and " Student Danny " came to bat. A moment the pitcher holds the ball, while from the waiting crowd there comes no sound. The ball speeds on its way and as the " Student " interrupts its course and sends it sailing through the October air, a shout breaks from the Monmouth College boys such as often burst from Grecian lips in honor of Olympic victories. That home run can never be for- gotten (wonder if some of the boys wouldn ' t like to forget it?) for it disclosed the fatal secret — Danny was a professional. And the " Invincibles " were ruled out and turned loose to rage and gnash their teeth and wish that they, or Danny, hadn ' t come. Yes, Monmouth College has made a fair record in the past; if not the best, at least above the average. But " how have the mighty fallen? " Where were we on last field day? Running, jumping, vaulting, tennis, football, baseball all told the same sad story, a story of dire defeat. " The shades of night were falling ' fast. When o ' er the winning scratch there passed A youth who realized the need To get the start and keep the lead — Our Victor. " And we had won a point. The fifty yard dash was ours. Victor Black had rescued the red and white from total defeat. But even with this Victor-y affairs looked very Black. What is the matter? Must we confess that physically we are the weak- est students in Illinois? Fellow students, athletes of Monmouth College, I will tell you what is the matter: You have not practiced. You had the pos- sibilities, but you had not the energy to develop them. You thought be- cause you could out-run and out-jump the other students, you had only to sit down and wait for foemen worthy ' of your steel. And you got them, didn ' t you? You were big and fat and could push the little boys over, therefore you were a football player. Did you ever trj to " get in condition. " Did you ever go to bed an hour earlier, did you ever smoke a cigar less, did you ever quit eating pie, because you were on the football team? That ' s the way they do at Lake Forest. Did you ever get up in the morning- and run several miles in the frosty air to develop your wind and harden your muscles. That ' s the way the Champaign players do. Then, again, because you could use a racket a little more deftly than others, because the girls told you that you were a splendid player, or because you had a pair of striped trousers, you thought you could play tennis. Did you ever hear of Sanderson and Smith, of Knox? But we have been too hard on the boys. At the time of the con- test the football team was hardly organized, the tennis grounds were but a year old, and the ball nine was without its pitcher. Admitting, then, that circumstances alone are responsible for this de- feat, the question still remains: Why is athletic interest at so low an ebb? In the first place, we are handicapped by a lack of conveniences. The Y. M. C. A. gymnasium " within easy reach of every student, " as the cata- logue states, does not seem to fill the bill. There are not five students in College who have exercised regularly during the past winter. And what is the result? Impure blood, sluggish brains and flabby muscles. We do not claim that physical prowess is the great aim of a college education. We realize that athletics should occupy but a secondary place, but we believe that the illiberal opinion that physical exercise is a waste of time, is all too prevalent here. Many laugh to scorn the idea that any student will develop his mind at the expense of his body. Let their own eyes bear witness to its truth. It is not hard study; it is injudicious study that slowly, but surely changes the energetic Prep, into the pale and sad-eyed Senior. The United Presbyterian Church is not poverty-stricken. She has not a great number of schools to support, yet there is hardly a college of equal rank with Mon- mouth which has not a physical director, and a well-fitted gymnasium, where each student is expected to spend a certain amount of time each day. And it is just such a provision that Monmouth College needs, not especially to place her on an equal footing with other colleges, but to make her graduates men with bodies, as well as minds, fitted for the work of life. A secondary reason for the present state of things, is a lamentable lack of college spirit — a lack of encouragement from the great body of students. Monmouth College has an athletic association. Fellow students, why don ' t you join? What if you don ' t care for such things? For the love you have for your College; for the sake of your desire to see her in the lead, do what you can to help her athletes carry her banner forward to success. We are sorry if we have said aught to discourage them. Rather would we hold them in highest honor. Theirs has indeed been an unequal struggle, and we say, all honor to those who, in the face of so many obstacles, have en- deavored to sustain the reputation of Monmouth in contests with other col- leges so much better equipped. Have you ever seen those Y. M. C. A. badges which many of the boys are wearing? A simple triangle of silver. They represent the three sides of man ' s nature. Each of these sides is duly treated in this our first M. C. An- nual, and it is ours at this time to urge the student not to neglect the physi- cal. You who would become a successful athlete, whether you are a track- runner or a foot ball player; whether you swing a ball bat or wield a tennis racket, play a scientific game. Do not be satisfied with the mastery of first principles. Have a reason for every movement. Keep yourself in shape. Do not dissipate. Join the Y. M. C. A. " gym. " until the College builds one, and work during the winter. Let the Athletic Association develop all new material next fall. Elect the foot ball captain for a year, and have a team of athletes always at work. Boom athletics. Do not let the College spirit die. Let every athlete -practice. Let every student encourage, strive for per- fection. Develop a strong mind and envelope it in a sound body, and you will become " an honor to yourself, a glory to your College, and a power in the world. " And on many an Inter-Collegiate contest field Monmouth Col- lege athletes will win their way to victory. Some day they will have a prize cup to defend, and on the first Fridaj ' in October, for many a year to come, the voices of Monmouth College students will unite in that inspiring cry: ' Rah for Monmouth ! THE ATHLETIC EIRL. Does swift Atlanta stand without a peer ' ? Not when our athletic girl Rets on her ear. She hops and jumps, kicking; the chandelier. Though past her thirtieth summer, a fall she doesn ' t fear. The legendary primness of our girls is past; Hopping, skipping, tennis gives the " bloom " that lasts; They are so coy and sweet, " the boys delight, " When walking out " in lovers ' lane " upon a starry night. We assure you, wild and rapacious reader, that is the result of a " divine afflatus " composed of H 2 S. — [Eds. z g A A A A A A A A A A A A base: ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ THE COLLEGE NINES. H. H.

' Twas the season drear of the dying year, When the dead leaves fall upon nature ' s bier; And the sobbing forest low wails a dirge, When the autumn steps o ' er the winter ' s verge. As I walked alone down the woodland trail, There I met a man with a face so pale; With an eye so mild with consuming care, Even one who ran might have read despair. " Why dost wander here, O, my wretched friend, When the waning day and the chill night blend? " " Oh, that wings I had like a dove, " said he, I would fly away and at rest I ' d be. I would wing my way to some milding mead, Where the flocks and herds mid the flowers feed, And the birds and bees, — O 1 am sure that there Cannot live the thing that is called despair. Or, I ' d fly away to some lonely isle , Where the sea winds soft every care beguile; Where cerulean wavelets eternal roll, And sooth to slumber the surging soul. I would speed away to a forest glade; To an island green in a sea of shade; By a gurgling spring in a secret nook, Like the hoary prophet of Cherith brook. Or, when sunrise gates in their splendor ope, I would time my flight to the march of hope, Not a day to me could e ' er break its pledge; I would dwell for aye on the morn ' s bright edge. 303 I would make my home in a mountain dell, Where the chamois only my haunt could tell; Far away from human deceit and craft, I would drink forever Lethe ' s draught. When the south wind sweeps from his tropic home. Bearing buds and blossoms where e ' er he roam, On the breath of life I would poise my wing; I would lay my head in the lap of spring. Oh stay, vain dreamer, for pinions fleet As the dove ' s are thine, and a rest more sweet Than the dove enjoys in her downy nest; For thy wings are Faith, and the Christ thy rest. — H. N. Barr.

A child beside his mother ' s knee, From primer bright and gay, His letters learn with childish glee, From Z clear back to A. And next the school house on the hill, And round it many nooks That, on the sunny afternoons, Allure him more than books. A larger school in city haunts, And yet a larger store Of knowledge and increasing tomes O ' er which his mind must pore. Then college days, when, with his books, Are mingled joys so bright, That life seems all devoid of care, And sorrows seem but light. Now student in Life ' s greater school, Where lessons hard and long Are given him, and sighs and tears Oft times displace the song. Until again, as once he stood Beside his mother ' s knee, He learns his alphabet of God From A all through to Z, And only finds his lesson learned And tasks all fully done When Life ' s great school lets out for him At the setting of life ' s sun. — Eva Claek Waid.

I was awful cold, about ten below; She said she felt a little so; But her voice was temptingly sweet and low, And, you bet, the horse walked on. But out from the seat some place I angled One of those blamed spring wraps, new f angled; Of course my arms became entangled As the horse walked on. Then close to my double-breasted vest She cuddled for a moment like a bird in a nest; Then to get away she tried her best; But the horse walked on. She acted like she was hopping mad, And told me to take her back to her dad; But I knew right well she was awful glad, We went so slow, as the horse walked on. Now, pretty soon she sensible grew, So I says to myself, " I know what I ' ll do, " And over the dashboard the lines I threw; Of course the horse walked on. I watched for a chance to grab a kiss When I tho ' t by the looks of the saccharine Miss The road was clear to expected bliss. Accommodatingly, the horse walked on. But alas for the breadth of her straw hat brim, It made the result so confoundedly slim That I fell back with a bow-legged grin, And, disconsolately, the horse walked on. — Got Left.

Oh Man! that boldest in thy mortal hand The destinies of spirits, train thine eye And teach thy stranger soul, that in the sky, The earth, the wood and sea thou mayst command And meet with kindred spirits from the land Soon to be thine. What! dost thou now deny That man ' s dim vision may such things descry? Alas, starved spirit! though thou take thy stand And scan the heavens, that God ' s strength reveal, Or sounding sea within its mountain walls, Thou feelst no pulse, no sweeter echoes roll Moving thy craven heart, then thou mightst feel And hear, if thou shouldst in its prison halls Shift the rude shackles that detain thy soul. — Feed Elliot. 1 17 his IrnaCJe.

Leonora I did not mean those words, I was only jesting, only fooling, Come back to your mocking birds, They and I are subject to your ruling. But alas! I am deserted, Here she ' ll never meet me more, For her life has now departed, And her spirit high does soar. Sad, sad was the moment! When we had our angry strife, Oh! that I could make atonement, And give her back her life. But too late! Alas, too late! Her grief was beyond control ; By her own hand she met her fate, And lies sleeping on yon ' wooded knoll r O Leonora!

Tread softly — Juniors, In reverent silence bow, No chestnut bell tolls, Yet the Senior soles, Are passing now. Sophs, however wise, With holy reverence bow, There ' s a number in those upper chairs, A number that will pass down stairs, Greater than thou. Oh! Fresh! Oh, wondrous fresh! Burst are the prison bars; They will soon be gone, With their honors won, Traveling under the stars. Oh! Preps! stupendous Preps! There stands the empty chairs; Scratch your swelled heads, And think what you have said, Against those Senior hairs. SEMINARY OR BUST. 112 The J±inr LG zL. MONMOUTH, ILL., MAY 20, 1892 " SUMUS POPULI. " MONMOUTH WINS! Monmouth Defeats Parsons by a Score of 23 to 14. Notwithstanding the threatening clouds and muddy diamond the long looked for game with Parsons was play ed at the College B all Park last Friday. Ted- dy had his nine in shape, and every man plaj T ed well. Therewere fewer errors made than at any previous game. For the first few innings the score was nearly even. In the last half of the fourth inning, Mc. Cracken knocked a two- " bagger and run in two scores. Cole then came to the hat and kept up his reputa- Jion as the best batter in the nine. He knocked a three-bagger and let in two more scores. After that their pitcher seemed to lose his grip and our boys knocked him all over the field. The fielders were not much good, and muffed the most of the flies. About the last of the seventh inning, when our W. M Hopping, Ralph Pringle, W. R. Sawhill, Bus. Manager.

Although Arch, is a splendid pitcher, he is out of practice and the boys had no difficulty in hitting him. He held them down pretty well, how- ever, and wound up the game with the above score. AN IMPROVEMENT. The past year has been a pros- perous one in many respects, and as we look back over it we see many evidences of improvement. While The An- nex has improv- ed considerably, we know that it is still far from being what its friends would like. We hope that the improvement begun may be continued next year, and we will do our part towards making it more interesting. We intend, if possible, to fit up Prof. Maxwell ' s old store room and make a cosy- little office for The Annex and Eavelings. This will be of benefit to both contributors and editorial board, and will obviate the neces- sity of the editors going around to the different members ot the board and getting copy. Our Alumni TH6 L6AP V6AR BAnQOGT. YHE GRANDEST social event in the annals of Monmouth College was | the leap year banquet given by the esthetic young- ladies of the insti- tution on the evening of February 16th. Generations of students have come and gone, but the young men of ' 92 enjoyed a reception and banquet that knocked all previous efforts higher than Gilroy ' s kite. On this splen- did occasion the society halls were lavishly decorated with all the embellish- ments that the young ladies could originate or borrow. This transcendency of art and beauty was again reflected in the polished wood-work and beamed forth with all the resplendent brilliancy of the noon-day sun. Here and there amid these blissful surroundings could be seen some gay and festive duck of the sybarite variety occupying a divan in companj- with an angelic and fair-faced maiden; while in an adjacent nook, sequestered amid richl} - draped portieres and sweet-scented daffodils, was a partie carree conversing in a nonchalant sort of a way on some all-absorbing topic like dress reform. The young - ladies appeared superb in their neat-fitting - decolletes, and the writer more than once during that never-to-be-forgotten evening - fancied himself within the walls of the Celestial City. To describe the beauty of one of these debonair entertainers would indeed be painting the lily, but suf- fice it to say that Solomon in all his glory was not arraj ed like one of these. It was amid these heavenly surrounding ' s that the orchestra commenced plaj-- ing - " Ta-ra-ra, boom-de-ay, " and these sonorous strains were wafted through the halls and corridors like the sweet fragrance of the violet in the month of May. This was the signal for the grand march to the banquet hall, and ? ' ; - stantcr the happy couples began to wend their way arm in arm to the scene of the festivities. The menu contained everything that the chef could provide in the way of delicacies and sweetmeats, and here it was that the epicure rev- eled in supreme delight. We will now draw the curtain over this bountiful love-feast, which the young ladies so kindly tendered to the young men, and leave the reader to imagine, or still better, to dream of the happy denouement and the remaining pleasures and enjoyments of that ever-memorable and eventful evening - .
