Detail l1as therefore been sacrificed to more thorough treatment of the broad outlines. Realizing that many readers will be led by this book to more careful study, suggestions for further reading will be found in the appendix. In such a work we have been compelled to omit or men- tion very briefly many points which those familiar with the subject might well expect to be included. Such as it is, however, we trust that this general view of the history of the College may have its uses.

In the first cat- alogue, as for fifty years afterward, English Grammar headed tl1e list of entrance requirements, and much-stress seems to have been put upon the subject in general. Students were advised to come so well prepared to enter that they might spend more time in composition. The text books in Rhetoric during those first years show that the work done must have been of a high order. The formation of a separate department for this study was, how- ever, a very gradual process. For years the English consisted main- ly of composition work, shared alike by teachers of Chemistry or Algebra, of Latin or History. Hours of chewing pencil ends made Saturday a memorable and fateful word to the students of those days, Along in the sixties and seventies there was apparently little instruc- tion aside from this, but in the years immediately preceding the in- troduction ofthe College curriculum, English began to be given a more important place. Miss Stevens, fortunately for us, turned frgm IO ' Mathematics to a needier cause, and with far-seeing, thoughtful care, planned the enlarged courses of the College Rhetoric department, wl1icl1 have steadily grown under her direction ever since. The de- velopment of the subject as arranged for the three years showed characteristic thoroughness and method. In carrying out these plans she has been ably helped by her sis- ter, Miss Alice Stevens, who entered into the work with sympathetic earnestness and made her own personality a power in the classroom. The seeming drudgery to Freshmen and Sophomores, of story and argument, of reviews and pleas, is varied by peeps through the loopholesofexainple and illustration at the beautiful and the strong in the realm of books. The Junior course in the technique of the drama and tl1e novel was planned by Miss Stevens with special reference to several coursesin lit- erature, the aim be- ing to have the stu- dents so thoroughly grounded in the prin- ciples of structure that they might not find it necessary to devote a large portion ofthe ti111e give11 to liter- ature tothe mastery of form. The principles of style, both prose and poetic, which before have been given in part in connection with tl1e study of structure, and in part with tl1e development of rhetorical theory, now form a separate elective. The Rhetoric of the Senior year, now to be elective, takes the form of literary criticism, and has been in the charge, of Miss Wood since the establishing of the College courses. Interpretation of beauty in literature must come from the heart of one who loves tl1e beautiful and believes in it. Many a one has received a new vision rr of truth and beauty, and of the unity of thought and spirit in master 1ninds, from the sympathetic study of literary art. The Rhetoric department is being constantly strengthened by the addition of new courses. One which has now been given for sev- eral years is a study of the development of rhetorical theory, begin- ning with the contributions of Plato, Aristotle and Quintilian. Out of one portion of this course, the comparison of modern text books, has come naturally one designed for students who expect to teach English in the preparatory schools. Allied to it are the new courses in the development of literary criticism, and in the history and theory of aesthetics. The course in Journalism was organized last year in response to a request of a class in the development of rhetorical theory, and has drawn to itself some of the most enthusiastic English students. Aside from the familiarity with newspapers and newspaper work which is its chief object, this class offers every possible opportunity for practical work in writing. It furnishes the correspondents who supply the newspaper world with college news, and those who re- spond to the frequent requests from alumnae associations for papers and letters. The present class is engaged in writing a history of the events of last year, wl1icl1 shall preserve for the College much ma- terial that would otherwise be soon lost. The general aim is to give an intelligent preparation for ready writing, whether in the newspaper or out of itg for ready speaking as well, as there are frequent opportunities for impromptu speeches. The work is intended not so much to make woman journalists as to show the students what qualities are necessary in newspaper work, and to make tl1e1n capable, as any educated women ought to be, of preparing matter for publication, The work in writing-and each member of the class is urged to have regular hours for writing as for laboratory work-and the conferences will be supplemented by QC- casional lectures from experienced journalists, both men and women, it is hoped. I2 FX Rv! MM flaw Clara Frances Stevens, Ph.1VI. J' HEN to any one has been given the brief vision of a signific- ant life, it is but shamefacedly, as a young thief caught in tl1e act, that he gives to the world such crudely arranged details as he has stolen when the artist's back was turned. He knows that it does not represent even in outline tl1e original life harmony, -yet it is only because of the lack of artist fingers. When the first infiuence of such a life is to inspire in tl1e thoughtless student that craving for reverence which urges to a search for the divine, there is especial regret that tl1e shadow picture should not too be a work of art, revealing no more than that which is tl1e world's due. The birthplace of Clara Frances Stevens is historic Newbury- port, set by tl1e sea, and kept beautiful by its guardian trees. Here her home has always been. O11 either side her ancestors were noted for loyal heroism a11d stalwart integrity, they were typical New Eng- land men and women. Her father, Cyrus Porter Stevens, was the son of a brave soldier who fought in the War of 1812, and earlier in tl1e family history are tl1e heroes of tl1e Revolution. Her mother, Harriet Newell Bartlett, may trace her relationship to Thomas Bart- lett, who pnt his name to tl1e Declaration of Independence. Tl1e lesson of obedience sl1e values as perhaps tl1e highest teach- ing of her New England home. The sea spoke to her very often and she loved it, but sl1e loved even better tl1e mountains. The old homestead, l1er mother's home, was in tl1e midst of mountains, and she counts a trip tothe Franconia Notch the red-letter day of her childhood. In all l1er work we see the breadth of vision, like tl1e sweep of ocean, and tl1e strength and upward reach of the hills. In tl1e fall of 1878 Miss Stevens entered the Junior lllldflle class at Mount Holyokeg before this she had spent fOlll' years teaching. Graduated in 1881, she was straightway called to be a teacher of Lati11 and Modern History i11 tl1e Seminary. I11 1884 she began to 15 teach Rhetoric and Mathematics. In 1889 she taught Rhetoric alone, but the following year Logic was added and this she taught until 1893. The last term of 1893 and the year of ISQ3-,94 was spent at the University of Michigan, where she received the degree of Ph. M. for work in Rhetoric, English Literature and Aesthetics. Here she worked under the direction of Professor Scott and Professor Demmon of the English department, and Professor Dewey, now in the philos- ophy department at Chicago University. From Professor Blaisdell of Beloit she received some invaluable help, though she never studied directly with him. Perhaps first among the great masters who have been potent in influencing her thought and methods, she would place Plato, fol- lowing him the German idealists, and among modern writers, Carlyle, Browning, Dowden, Pater and Arnold. In 1886 she travelled widely in England, Scotland, Norway, Switzerland, France and Germanyg several of her summers have been spent in walking tours in the Adirondacks and the White Mountains. The strength and extent of our Rhetoric department is almost wholly due to the wise and untiring work of Miss Stevens in its be- half. Many new courses have been lately added by her, and are of especial helpfulness. The class in journalism is not similar to any course in another woman's college. Her class, planned especially for those who are to teach English, is extremely helpful. She con- ducts an enthusiastic class in the development of literary criticism. As a teacher, Miss Stevens has the rare combination of a system- atic harmony of plan and power of inspiration, which is the direct outgrowth of her reverent cultured nature. Many are those students who give voluntary tes-timony to an influence which has lifted life and tl1ought to a higher plane, and has given deeper insight into the realities of life. 16 The Facultyi '29 MRS.

FLETCHER was born September 13, 1850, in Dunstable, Mass. His father was a physician, Dr. Samuel M. Fletcher. A large part of his school life was spent in Westerly, R. I. In 1867 Prof. Fletcher went to Pittsfield, Mass., where for six years he studied music with Dr. Benjamin C. Blodgett. Most of this time he was a member of Dr. Blodgett's family, and for three Years taught under him in the then famous Maplewood Seminary. Prof. Fletcher went to Germany in 1873, where he remained two years. In Berlin he studied theory under Dr. C. F. Weitzman and piano with Franz Kullak and his renowned father, tl1e late Theodore Kullak. Returning to this country, he settled in the west and for six years taught in Chicago. In September, ISSI, he was called to the Smith School of Music, where he was again associated with Dr. Blodgett. With the exception of the years from '89 to ,QS he has re- tained his position as instructor in music at Smith College. His connection with the Music Department ol Mount Holyoke College began in 1894. As a teacher Prof. Fletcher has met with great success. Not only is he an inspiration to his own pupils, with 11is untiriug energy and keen appreciation of the good and beautiful, but because of his cheerful personality and ready sense of humor, he is a welcome guest in all the College halls. His modesty and retiring disposition have made 11im take a less conspicuous place before the public than his talent would warrant. . 25 P W. 'V 'W lx I , if 1,4 Xt, W V I C . 'E y . "Great is Class Spirit, but the Power of College Spirit Who can Measure?" fi' FOSTIQRING MOTHER, long have I wandered with thy child and alas I am sore and weary! To the driver of cattle or the tiller of soil there cometh rest, but verily whoso traineth children must be wakeful ever. Didst thou not give her to me when first she came to thee, with the word that though her unripeness was as that of the persimmon before the frost hath touched it, yet didst thou hope much from her? With what childish innocence did she prepare for her journey, scornfully rejecting the cry which one who accounted herself of great worth because of her size and years did offer, "Stand up straight, p Stand up straiglit, Holyoke, Holvoke, '98!" . and choosing a combination which should display wondrous learn- ing, while she proclaimed in song tl1at she was "full of grace." Did I not cling to her when my heart was oft made cold with 29 fear of what she might do next? Of a truth she did ask the gods themselves to dine with her! Surely there be that can predict the course of a curve though it pass through the center of tl1e infinite, but who shall foretell the action of a Freshman class? Did I not stay with her, O Mother of Many, through the next year when there were none but did deride? Yea, the force of custom is mighty but the self assurance of a Sophomore class stoppeth at naught. Canst thou not remember how she and her older sister- fmay all good blessings be upon tl1e departedlj-did unite in saying that there could be no friendly rivalry between them, therefore there should be none? Long did I urge her to consider that competition might exist without strife and much did she struggle with herself, but it was written that my counsel should fall as seed upon the des- ert. But I withdrew not from her and I was with her afterwards on that night when she was roused from her slumbers to breathe smoke and to learn the odor of burning feathers. Did I desert her even when the man at 'l'itan's Pier-fmay he drink his own soda and may tl1e flavor of his own peppermints abide with himlj-demanded mon- ey, because verily he owned the view? Great and mysterious are tl1e rights of property and far be it from me to counsel disrespect thereunto. O Eye of the Valley, hast thou no word for me that I did weary my soul last year over thy children? Surely they would fain have passed through the fire and the mud amid oil stoves and dust with- out murmuring, but, Mighty Mother, thou knowest that discornforts of the flesh do grievously vex the spirit, and truly her murmurs were few. Canst thou not recall how thy child would have been gay and clid endeavor to make merry her youngest sister with candy prepared in her presence and maize whitened by the flame of the fire? May the stoves which she used perish from the earth and be cast into pits, for their heat was as that of a tallow candle and their usefulness as naught! Corn that cannot be eaten may be given to the crows, and molasses that pleaseth not the palate may be rejected, but to fail of one's expectations is as the bitterness of the buck busl1. Did she not also in this year of confusion, blessed be the ending thereof, spend her time and thought over pageants and vain Shows for love of what they would bring tl1at she might have that which would purchase ice cream and satisfy the greed of musicians who 30 , will be paid for the very breath they blow into their instruments? Canst thou forget that though tl1e air was chilled until ice cream was as water to a drowning man and though music and moonlight can charm but little one whose Hesh is blue with cold, yet was thy daughter merry? And then, O Fostering Mother, dost thou recall the night when her older sister left thee and this thy daughter sadly and gladly re- ceived from her tl1e robe which none but the Senior may wear and claimed the place of honor upon the steps which lead into thy halls and from which she must pass alone into the world? Tears tl1ere were shed that night but they were not of bitterness. Thus far, O Kindly Parent, have I brought thy daughter. I I shall lead no more of thy children by just this path, but there shall be briers and blossoms for all. I may be no more constantly with this thy child, but if ever she forget me-may the day be blotted from the calendar! Take her, O Fostering Mother, and give her of the skin of the sheep, for verily she hath deserved, this of thee. , V J . :W ii V, fx rx- - .Sunil ,-Q' ' ,A , Y .- 31 Senior Class .29 Officers P1'e5Z'dc'7lf, . ....

Monotonous, these street cars!-nothing to do but look at advertisements and be stared at by pas- sengers. Only four passengers! A fat little girl sat opposite me, a conse- quential little bunch of girlish conceit. But there were quantities of advertisements. "There's a smack in Fresh's relish that reminds you of green things in spring time." It was just above the fat little girlls head. Close beside her sat her sister, apparently a little older, but bearing a distinct resem- blance. It is always fun to me to label people, that is, see how ad- vertisements apply to those sitting below them, but this time I was puzzled. "Great sale at Rink Bros. Goods damaged by fire and water at reduced rates." 40 "Storm rubbers are proof against snow and ice and prevent slip- ping on car tracksf' "Oh, be jolly! Buy a ticket for tl1e Tech entertainment." "Take Huxley's Sarsaparilla. It will make tl1at tired feeling a brief one." "Minto's food for invalidsf' "Turner's 11ew invention-unbreakable test-tubes." My eyes wandered up the car. A young lady with a serious air of responsibility and a vague longing in her eyes was scowling over a heavy book. "Valuable 63.1'l2l1WOl'I11S,H I read up above, "for sale cheap." "Titcl1ener's excursions on the Chutes are warranted to produce the most exquisite thrilling sensations." "C, R. Bros., furnishers of original sermons, sonnets, quatrains and essays. Strictly honest basis!" "Amherst original toast, excellent for sleighing parties." "Mother Goose stories for children, compiled at great expense, to be given away on the purchase of--" Suddenly all blended into a mass of living figures. Posters took shape, advertisements spoke. I shook off my drowsiness. My eyes lighted on a golden promise. "Fleur-de-Lys Baking Powder will raise everything," and close be- side it, "More than satisfactory! J. Class's royal medicine for good digestion." I craned my head around t ofthe car but there was a dignified young lady beside me, tall, serene, self complacent, very slender in compar girl across the way, and I did not dare to look. o see the advertisements on my side ison with the chubby little a IH-lL, if Mi v I lf 4I The Junior Class .95 Officers f,l'I?SZ'dL'7If, . . .

God was angry with the people on the eartl1 because they grew wicked and He shut up the doors of Heaven so men could no longer hear the celestial choir. This grieved the angels and they sat on the clouds and scattered the broken bits of melody down upon the world. Ever since that long ago time the children of the earth have been seeking to fit into harmonies these scattered notes. Some of the bits whirled to the north allfl some to the sonthg in- to the west they fell and into the land far east. But the clouds upon which the angels sat must have been quite over South Hadley, be- cause so many pieces have been found tucked away in strange little COl'll61'S. Once, not long ago of the valley, for they had heard how the music scraps lay in drifts, in many places, like tl1e snow. Speedily they began their organized search. Carefully, earnestly it has been carried on, and 110W about one-half of a beautiful melody is perfectly resolved. SI , there 'came a band of pilgrims to this town The prelude is lurid and weird. It was very hard to iit these pieces together with their ragged edges and tl1e pilgrims almost des- paired. Now it is completed, it is wonderfully strong and clear, and through its minor ripples a light-the light of hope. The theme begins, that, too, is strange. The air is dainty and light while the accompaniment carries the shade of the prelude. Have you ever seen a summer sunshine through a thunder cloud? The bass resolves itself into chords of C sharp whose strength is ab- solutely, niathematically perfect. The melody is warm and bright, like sunshine in a purling crystal stream. It lilts and laughs and makes one think of groups of clear-hearted girls moving about in the lights and clad in dainty gowns. Then comes a bar of strange beauty. It is like stars shining down into dark trees standing lonely on the hillside. Wlieii quick as thought the darkness bursts into light and the night rings with joyful cries. There are a few measures in B flat--very few. One of them sounds like a sleighbell. Then comes a note or two of wholesome pride-a conscious pride in bodily prowess. The interlude is full of quiet rest and of longing, for the little band of pilgrims had grown to love their search. It is here the accompaniment changes from minor to major. Gladly the theme is taken up again, but the melody is not so free and light as before. There seems to be a woeful sadness that translates itself readily to the heart in Old English. Later there are notes of wild despair written in strange, unearthly keys, one of them A S, 03. ' An undefined longing sings itself through many measures. It is one of those fleeting melodies so difficult to put to words, like the far-away sound of sleighbells that seem never to come any nearer. In perfect, faultless time the music swells. It is the strength of college 111C11,S voices, mingled with the tinkling of mandolins. The search goes on. Deeper and deeper the melody grows, ,f K l j! fllly y f -r , 3 " XX , I. 7?

J' CTOBER 5th-The child Nineteen One has now arrived at such an age that it will be interesting to study the growth of intel- ligence and to note the results. This evening Ninety-Eight amused the little one very nicely. We were much alarmed at find- ing she had swallowed two spoonfuls of ice cream, but no harm re- sulted. October 12th--The study of the child mind is growing interest- ing. Consciousness of self is rapidly developing. She lisps Ninety- Eight's name and reaches out with chubby hands for the tassel on her cap. December 7th-Baby is beginning to walk alone. The other day sl1e went off by herself and sagely distinguished between her head and 11er feet. She decided with much crowing and cooing to carry her head on her shoulders and came proudly back to ug, December 8th-The inability of the infant mind to keep an im- age even a short time after an impression, is illustrated by Ninety- 58 Nine's showing the child Mother Goose pictures. The bright col- ors attracted l1er but she seemed unable to distinguish between tl1e characters. Green and white were especially pleasing to her. january 5th-We decided to try the effects of change of air on Nineteen Une and her sisters but fear that tl1e attention and pelting she received have not been beneficial. To-night at ten o'clock she rebelled against the ring given her at bedtime and kept us all awake by her temper. February Ist-Although we had much desired to-day to see how the child was impressed by her first sleigh ride, l1er distracted father forbade our taking 11er out since the snow is very deep and it is un- safe to turn corners. We regretted the loss of this opportunity for scientific investigation, for we had taken all possible precautions. February 3rd-The child is beginning 11er first struggle with knowledge by learning tl1e alphabet and it is interesting to record that this seems as hard for her as Psychology for Ninety-Eight. We fear she does not resemble her famous grandmother and can not i1n- agine from whom she inherits such a strong will. However, we may console ourselves by thinking, "The higher the race the longer its development." June 23rd-Nineteen One is learning to spell and to-day she sur- prised and pleased us by spelling proudly, H-O-L-Y-O-K-E.

' We realize for the first time how many talented freaks live in our midst when Ninety-Eight exhibits them at a Dime Museum.

We study charts, wade through shavings and over laths and plastering, inspect half-finished rooms and finally make up our minds as to just which rooms we wish to occupy when we re- turn in September. Commenceinent guests begin to arrive, and dignified papas, fond mamas, and admiring brothers and sisters and cousins are much in evidence. V Of course it rains and we march to church arrayed in waterproofs and rubbers to listen to Dr. Little's Baccalaureate Sermon. The annual Promenade occurs on the campus. Seniors, Juniors, and guests take part in the festivities, disconsolate underclass men look on longingly, while interested spectators from the village hold up the fence. Class-Day exercises in the grove pass off smoothly and Ninety- Seven's ivy is planted amid sweet strains of music. The after- noon is given over to the alumnae meeting and class reunions.

Alma Mater formally opens her doors and we assemble at chapel. The stationery likewise opens its doors and a wild stampede fol- lows. The Y. W. C. A. gives its annual reception at Pearsons Hall and we wonder where they all came from. 127 The first meeting of the Y. W. C. A. is given up to reports from the Northfield Y. W. C. A. conference. Ninety-Eight and Nineteen Hundred elect class oliicers and the customary excitement ensues. Dr. Watasi, of the University of Chicago, lectures to the Biology Club on "The Relation Between Contraction of Protoplasm and Pliospliorescencef' Our first "Hall," We are assigned seats in chapel and learn with delight that we shall celebrate the anniversary of the tire by going to t11e mountains. It rains. Consternation likewise reigns. The Seniors excite the customary admiration when they appear at chapel for the first time in all the glory of cap and gown. "Mount Holyoke, Mount Tom and Mount Nonotuck, at home, IO A. M. to 5 P. M." Conflicting notices of Nineteen Hundred and One's first class meeting cause the wildest excitement among the Freshmen.

The Founder's Day guests begin to arrive. Miss Hunt and Mrs. Zella Allen Dixon, of the Association of the Northwest, are tendered a reception at Pearsons. Delayed until the completion of the chapel, Founder's Day is finally celebrated with all the formality of turkey dinner and appropriate ceremonies. In the evening we enjoy a "feast of reason and a flow of wit" in tl1e Assembly Rooni, which diet we find unsubstantial. t The first services in the new chapel are conducted by Dean Strat- ton, of Wellesley. Seats in the new chapel are assigned. Some girls go home to be thankful. Others stay here and reflect on their "Marcies." Mr. Thayer is kept busy delivering boxes, and Dr. Lowell sets her pill case in order, prepared for the worst. In addition to the turkey, Safford enjoys a play, and Dr. Lowell gives pointers on love-making. Work is resumed and we try to settle down to an occasional nibble instead of a continual feast. Psi Omega holds an open meeting at which Dr. Sweet lectures on "The Third Romance of Nineteenth Century Poetry." We again joyfully contribute to the china fund.

Brigham J' "I never thought how much Miss Brigham knew, Ionly thought what she was." "To love her was a liberal education." ER name is now a household word for all Mount Holyoke Col- lege girlsg her portrait is the first object that meets the eyes on entering the Hall which bears her nameg near the portrait, on a tablet upon the wall one reads the inscription: "A, D. 1897. This building stands in loving memory of Mary Brigham, who was made president of Mount Holyoke College, March 19, 1889. She entered into life eternal, June 29, 18893, Yet it is doubtless true that most of the students of recent years know very little about that beautiful life and its power over others, nor where that life was spent. For them, therefore, tl1is brief and necessarily inadequate sketch is written. Mary Brighan1's home was in Westboro, Massachusetts, where she was the greatly loving and beloved eldest daughter and sister in her father's home. When seventeen years old, she entered Mount Holyoke Seminary. The girl friend who accompanied her said, "Mary and I are going to Mount Holyoke to become Christians- you know the girls all do." And we are told by one who was their fellow-student then that "In that wonderful revival of 1846-7, when nearly all in the school were converted, and all were lifted into higl1er communion with God, dear Mary was the first fruit. Her character was naturally lovely, but the inward change of heart was the key to all that was so lovely and complete in her rounded life." She was in the Seminary less than two years as a pupil, but after an interval of rest and of work elsewhere, she returned as a teacher for three years. Two years in Newton followed, then three years in Ingham University, Le Roy, N. Y., and from there she went to Brooklyn Heights Seminary, where she remained for twenty-six years as associate principal, though repeatedly sought for to fill other important and responsible positions in Vassar, Smith, and 140 A MEMORlAL TO MARY A. BRIGHAIVI. ELECTED PRESIDENT OF MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGE rm 1as9 Wellesley Colleges. Twice in the history of the latter, its founder used all his powers of persuasion to induce her to become its presi- dent. Last of all came the call to return to her Alma Mater, and to this a negative answer could 11ot be so easily given. Entreaties and arguments from Brooklyn friends were added to her own heart's pleading to continue the work with which she had become so thor- oughly identified, not only in school, but in Cl1ristia11 and social or- ganizations. A protest against her leaving the city, signed by many of Brooklyn's leading citizens-men and women of the highest cul- ture-closed by saying, "We realize that our longing to retain her with us only does credit to our hearts and heads, and we also claim that her long and highly appreciated efforts in our city give us a right to keep her if possible." But a day came when her acceptance of the presidency of Mount Holyoke College was sent to the trustees, and she said to the New York alumnae association-of which she was president-"I have come to feel that I must go and succeed if I cang fail if I must, but go I must." What high hopes were built upon that decision! She had been a pupil of Mary Lyon, had k110Wu much of the inner life of the school through all the years of her ab- sence and was in full sympathy with that which may properly be called the ideal of Mount Holyoke College as it was of the Semin- ary: "A spirit of controlling desire to impart a thorough intellectual education under a positive, permeating Christian influence." She would enter upon her work "not forgetting the pastin her haste for the future, not ignoring the conscience 11or chilling the heart in her zeal for intellectual advance, and yet most generously identified with every real advance." But, " in a moment, i11 the twinkling of an eye," on a journey from her Westboro l1on1e to Brooklyn to make farewell visits, God took her to the higher place and service of Heaven. A What gave Miss Brigham her extraordinary power over young lives-made her so deeply beloved by other women-caused a whole city to mourn so at her death? Her commanding figure, grace of manner, brilliant dark eyes, her smile, her voice must have strongly attracted l1er pupils at first meeting, and these outward charms never lost their hold, for they were the speech of the soul within. Her perfect health, her abound- ing energy her untiring capacity for work, l1er executive ability, her I42 good cheer, were stimulating to others and made her a recognized leader. She was in a rarely true way an eduralor-not only of her pupils but of all with whom she was associated. By her sympathetic nature and insight into character put to noblest uses by Christian love, she drew out of other souls the best and the highest in them and by her own personality inspired them to live up to the high ideals which she had helped them to conceive. "A perfect woman, nobly planned to warn, to comfort and command," l1er face was as the open door of a sanctuary, where all in any real trouble 1night enter, sure of wisely loving consolation. One Easter day she wrote, "I am often ashamed of my weak faith and murmuring spirit because of the burdens of my life and work, for I have so much in Christ which ought to be like a halo of glory surrounding every earthly work." That l1alo was many a time reflected in her face, though she knew it not. It was "A sweet, attractive kind of grace, a full assurance given by looks, Continual comfort in a face the lineameuts of gospel books." Those words spoken by one of her young girl pupils-"I never thought how 1nucl1 Miss Brigham knew, I only thought what she was"-are the most satisfying of all tributes, and are, indeed, final, as expressing the secret of her power. "She was like one bearing a torch to guide a company of young travelers, who holding the torch aloft for them to find their way, becomes herself unconsciously a glorious picture and pattern of truth and faith, and surely the test of the rarest and 111ost precious power on earth is in the purity and vol- ume of this wider influence. A special equipment, a fortunate e11vir- onment, may serve for professional ends and professional fame, but not for the larger ends of the noblest personality." Beyond all else, towards this noble personality may all Mount Holyoke students aspire. Deep and abiding in each heart may there be the prayer which is full of Mary Lyon's spirit and which was found written on the fly-leaf of Mary Brigha1n's Bible: "Send me anywhere, only go with meg put any burden on me, only sustain meg sever any tie but the one that bi11ds me to Thy service and to Thy heart." 143 Honorable Daniel Saffordi' ae The first stranger who ou the merits of the enterprise contributed a large sum, and at the time of his death the largest donor to Mount Holyoke. Trustee from April, 1837, till his death in 1856. ANIEL SAFFORD was born in Hamilton, Essex County, Mass., Oct. 30, 1792. At sixteen years of age he went to Salem to serve as his brother's apprentice, at twenty he began his business career in Boston, and from that time till his death lived in Boston, one of her most respected and honored citizens. From the time when Miss Lyon first came into his home in 1836 to unfold her plans for the education of young women, to the very last of his life, Mr. Safford always gave most generously to Mount Holyoke money, time, thought, influence. What that thought and influence have been to the college can best be told by giving a glimpse of Mr. Safford's character as revealed to those who knew him longest. Feeling strongly the dignity of work, ambitious, energetic, un- erring in judgment, Mr. Safford was a rarely successful business man. He was so upright and honorable that he was trusted by every one with a very absolute trust. Never a politician but always a patriot, Mr. Safford accepted only such positions as he felt he could fill. He was urged to become mayor of Boston but refused. He did serve in both branches of the State Legislature and is described as a more than usually efiicient member. He was so strong in the church that again and again he was called to leave the church of his choice that he might help to organ- ize other churches. The American Board and various city philan- thropic societies found in him a stanch supporter and judicious helper. His charities always kept pace with his income and he was 'The facts on which this hrlef sketch is based are taken from A Memoir of'Daniel Safford, by his wife. I44 I I I tfhfief an-, . I - . IH JI' -1 SAFFORD HALL. NAMED IN HONOR OF HON. DANIEL SAFFORD successful in persuading others to give. He opened his home as freely as his purse, entertaining with princely hospitality. Mr. Safford had always a deep interest in every phase of educa- tional work, and was as wise and broad and far-seeing in planning for the interests of Mount Holyoke as for the other causes so dear to his heart. The portrait in Safford Hall, tal-:en after Mr. Safford's return from his first trip to Europe, in 1846, is said to be a very perfect one. Dignitied and courtly in his bearing, Mr. Safford yet had a gentle- ness and tenderness that made little children love and trust him, and young people know hin1 for a friend. He was deeply interested in every individual with whom he came in contact, and quick to under- stand the special need he could meet, and with rare skill always found the best way to give material or spiritual aid. Even and tran- quil, broad-minded and large-hearted, he was a successful peace- niaker and a wise counsellor. His deep spirituality, his unswerving allegiance to truth, his unwavering trust in God to whom he looked for guidance in everything, witnessed for him that he "walked with God." Deacon Safford's favorite Bible passage was the twelfth of Romans and by that chapter he lived. 146 E 'Bak PORTER HALL. NAMED IN HONOR OF ANDREW W. PORTER OF MONSON Andrew Porter .Q EACON PORTER was one of tl1e original Board of Trustees and for more than forty years the treasurer of Mount Holyoke. "On a snowy day in April, 1836," so the story begins, Mary Lyon visited the home in Monson for the purpose of persuading Mr. Porter to take the position of business manager in the enterprise which she had in hand. She was successful, and "the following year from March 'till November nearly every Monday he drove to South Hadley, twenty- one miles, returning home on Saturday. During all this time he left his own extensive business in other hands, and made no charge for his services." Mrs. Porter's name is prominent on the list of the early friends, and there is reason to believe that it was her influence which led Deacon Porter to consent to take upon himself the arduous labors connected with the founding of Mount Holyoke Seminary. Mary Lyon found the home at Monson a congenial spot and used often to spend several days at a time in the family, After the death of their children Deacon and Mrs. Porter seemed to lavish their affections upon the students of Mount Holyoke, who were always spoken of as "the daughters." From tl1e history we learn the estimate of one who knew Deacon Porter well. Professor Tyler of Amherst College says: "My associ- ation with him has left upon my mind the liveliest and deepest im- pression of the wisdom of his plans and counselsg the simplicity, pur- ity, and utter unselfishness of his character, and the unspeakable value of such a practical, sensible, prudent, efficient Christian man of business, in the founding, rearing and managing of such an insti- tution." , ' 149 Dr. D. K. Pearsons an ANIEL KIMBALL PEARSONS was born in Bradford, Vtt, April 14, 1820. On his mother's side he is a descendant of the Israel Putnam family. His early education was obtained from the district school, and at the age of sixteen he began teaching school himself, remaining in this profession five winters. At the age of twenty-one he entered Dartmouth College where he remained for two years. He afterward studied medicine at Wood- stock, where he was graduated as an M. D. He began the practice of medicine in Chicopee, Mass., in 1844, remaining there till 1857, when he removed to Ogle County, Illinois, thence to Chicago, where he engaged on a large scale in the real-estate and money-loaning business and made a fortune. His prudence, sagacity, industry, and integrity, together with other qualities which elude ready analysis, make him to-day one of the most impressive personalities in Chicago. He is a director in many of the strongest corporations of the city, has served in the Com- mon Council, where, as chairman ofthe Finance Committee, by his successful financiering, he saved the credit of the city at a time when it was in desperate straits, and he held his office with the approval and plaudits of his constituency, regardless of party aililiation. Drq Pearsons holds that to know how to make money is one sci- ence, to know what to do with the money when acquired is another. Having mastered both sciences, he has invested large sums in the higher Christian education. Almost a score of colleges are rejoicing in a large increase of power because of Dr. Pearsons' generous gifts. His plan of assistance is so wise, so broad, and so stimulating in its influence on others, that every dollar he gives carries with it three or four or five dollars from other sources. A fact that Dr. Pearsons never loses' a11 opportunity to empha- size is that his inspiration for giving to Christian education is di- rectly traceable to the influence of Mary Lyon, whom he came to 150 L mi I I : Q 1 1 Nfam PEARSONS HALL.

THE GIFT OF MR. JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER John D. Rockefeller 12' OHN DAVISON ROCKEFELLER was born in Richford, Tioga County, N. Y., about fifty years ago, of Holland stock, through New Jersey and Connecticut families, educated in tl1e schools of Cleveland, O., trained to business there, he located in that city for his first venture, later, he turned his attention to the refining of pe- troleum, afterward joining with others in the formation of the Stand- ard Oil Company, an organization too well known to need comment, save, perhaps, to say that a leadi11g officer of a rival company recent- ly said to tl1e writer, "Whatever one may say of monopolies, this much is true, the Standard has been the means of putting oil on the mark- et ofthe world at such iigures as to be a blessing to the poor." This patron of the college is a man over fifty, of medium height, well-knit, brown hair and blue eyes, deliberate in motion and speech, cool, but not cold, strong, but not stern, a sphinx, yet the morning sunbeams make him sing. In business he is one of those men to whom the Almighty said: "But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God, for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth." A general, strategic, but, like Grant, beating down opposition by massing guns and men. In State interests, Republican, for an honest dollar, in church, constant, consistent, beneiicent, but business-like, in home- life, devoted, loving, jovial, just. "Those who know him best love him most." We believe a millionaire may be an altruist, a steward of the gifts, as well as the grace of God. Chicago University, Vassar, and Mount Holyoke College, are suggestions in a large way, of method carried into details. The satisfaction of large success has been tem- pered by the sense of responsibility and stewardship. H. C. Honor-1'roN. 155 I I7 Wmyf xlrxia, fl ,f V4.5 4 lgXW4fYX W M!

Paradigm, paradise, paradox,-"a tenet or proposition contrary to received opinion." "An as- sertion or sentiment seemingly contradictory." O Webster, why didn't you illustrate your definition? I shan't weigh more than twenty pounds by vacation time if this burden of illustrating Genung continues to press upon my shoulders. An illogical remark that, for if the weight of the burden were added to my weight, tl1e result ought to be greater rather than less. I would go to Bessie's room for a suggestion if there were any chance of finding l1er, but she's never at l1o1ne, and when she is, she isn't there. I wonder if that definition of scandal she told at table this morning was original: "When nobody ain't done nothing and somebody goes and tells." But to return to my "sentiment seemingly contradictory." Instead of trying to think I wish I could stay out-of-doors. The sky is so clear and azure.

Me and Myself al E and Myself have got along pretty well together for nearly twenty years but it can't last much longer. We have got to split partnership. Every body knows Me,-at least they think they do,-but itis the hardest work in the world for Me to know Myself. She's a troublesome creature to get the upper hand of. When I make a polite call on a superior and try to be courteous and entertaining, Myself, bubbling up joyfully inside, finally gets irre- pressible, fioyys over and sends Me home in disgrace. Mauy's the time my Me has to be politely civil to the world with Myself making fun of it insideg and in places where it is becoming that my Me should look solemn, it's Myself will think it all a joke. Sometimes it's just the opposite. My Me must entertain a joyful company with Myself inside heavy as grape-shot. There's no telling the moods Myself will take or the trouble it gives Me to control her. But then I can't grumble very much against the poor thing, for many's the time when my Me has been a bit heavy on her legs or gloomy in her views that Myself has brightened her up with a merry thought, for Myself is more often joyous than melancholy. But whether Me or Myself is master, I don't know. It comes down at last to the question whether Iill be ruled by other people or not.

It's spotted with ink and soaked with tears Shed in the agony of making rhymes. 165 Hall Orchestras .25 EATED one day in my study I was trying my best to think, And my pen was trailing idly Leaving great blots of ink. I know not what I was doing Or what I was dreaming there, When my ear was struck by a discord That thrilled the silent air. It flooded the halls with a clamor Like a rushing hurricane, It gave me a mental process That was closely akin to pain. It scattered all inspirations For the brief I must write next day, It seemed like tl1e stern avenger Of hours I had wasted away. It mingled shriekings and rumblings Into the tumultuous whole, And finally died into mumblings Like some complaining soul. I longed, but I longed for vainly, That short-lived peace so dear Which had left at the awful racket Witll a haste that was born of fear. It may be in years hereafter I shall have this siege once more, But I hope it is only in college I shall hear that steam-pipe roar. 166 Where Is It? 4-29 HAVE of late heard rumors about a very strange place, where no one has ever gone and probably no one ever will go, for while it makes no difference in which direction one may start, since all paths tend thither, one can 11ever approach it. I think it is akin to the place of no-where and we are located midway between the two. Many remarkable things are known about this place, if such it may be calledg and doubtless further explorations will reveal still more. As wise men tell us that in this world of ours there are two poles, so in this strange region of which I am speaking tl1ey say there are many poles. Eccentricities abound there alsog I wonder if that is where people get theirs? Although so far away this is very easily obtained. The simple pro- cess of addition will give itg and it 1nay be still more easily obtained by division. Many things that are impossible here are possible there.

So the girls took the box and opened it wide, And there were the Senior caps inside! And when they saw that ravishing sight They cried in a chorus expressing delight, "What cute little caps! What fu11ny little caps, What dear little Senior caps I" Observing a strictly dignified air The caps were all worn so straight and so square, Portraying a Senior in every way- Those who met them dared only in whispers to say "What cute little caps! What funny little caps! What dear little Senior caps !" Each maid took a gown and away they went Strolling along to their Hearts' content, And they walk so straight with heads so high, That the Freshmen who see them invariably sigh: "Such cute little caps! Such funny little caps ! ' Such dear little Senior caps!" With eyes aflanie and cheeks aglow, On the campus the Seniors come and go, 168 And their hearts are filled and thrilled with pride As they think of the gowns and the caps beside- The cute little caps! The funny little caps! The dear little Seniorcaps! "If ever a big box comes my Way," The other students pause and say, "I'1l look for the treasure I'd fain possess, That is won by labor-can't you guess? Why a cute little cap- A funny little cap- A dear little Senior cap I" vb' Freshman's Tears J' RESHMAN had a love for Senior Such as words could never utter.

My "pig" was one of them. For a few days after the fire I simply existed, sleeping in one place, boarding at another, keeping my belongings in a third, spending most of my time getting from one place to another. At the end of those few days when things were a little more set- tled, I missed my "pig" so much I came to the conclusion that I could not live any longer without one, so one day I started on a search in the rink for another "pig.', It was rather a dilapidatedlooking "pig" I found standing on three legs and a half. But there was a certain air about it which impressed one with the fact that it had started in life with good family connections although through some misfortune it had been reduced to its present condition. Once my property and established in my own room it seemed to feel at home and be in perfect harmony with its surroundings. It was comfortable to sit upon, and it steadily improved, as some people do when they are "sat upon," until my "pig" and I grew to be no common friends. As I look back upon 1ny college days I do not know what I should have done without my "pig." It was always on hand to help me out under all circumstances. How could I ever have reached the top chiffoniere drawer, or dusted the top of my book- case, or hung my dresses when the hooks were about a foot beyond my reach if it had not been for n1y dear old "pig?" But these are only the minor instances of its inestimable assistance to me. I am not ashamed to confess that I owe my "pig" at least half the pro- gress in my college course. It gave me the inspiration which re- sulted in some of those wonderful themes. Together we drew the brief, together we waded through Minto's Logic, together we plan- ned the essay, the plea and the discussions. For all these services it never asked to share the honor but gave all tl1e credit to me. 171 Thus 1ny "pig" and I were inseparable companions and fully expected to remain such to the end of my college days. But it was planned otherwise. "Best of friends must part," they say, and at t11e end of the year 1ny "pig" with his tribe departed to an unknown land. af Our Hills .29 AIR in the morning shy lights, Tender in the twilightsg Glad when by the sunshine kissed, Gloomy in the river misty Shadowed deep in dusky nights, Mystic in the new-nioon lights. Watched by stars and dawns and dreams, Whisp'ring streams sift down the gleams Of the thoughts that Heaven brings To the Hills. The brown thrush sings joyously thy prayer, and thou, Holiness upon thy brow, Livest true to all God wills- Our Hills, our eternal Hills! 172 w" I Jack J' HISTORY of this year at Mount Holyoke College would be in- complete without a mention of our tried and faithful friend Jack. This lack would be especially mourned by the mem- bers ofthe "Mary Brigham" family, for to them jack has been un- faltering in his affection. When they go down cellar in the twilight, thinking perhaps of-hobgoblins?-Coh, nog college young women are above such thingsj-but of that indescribable something which all darkness possesses, they are sure of one companion. In his zeal to act as escort he perhaps suggests thoughts of broken collar-bones, for cellar stairs are 11ot the pleasantest things to fall down. I admit that Jack has beautiful eyes, an honest face, and might indeed be a great comfort to some lonely soul, but we are not lonely nor do we need such excitement as Jack gives. Many a night when I have been sweetly dreaming, I have awakened, thinking pande- monium let loose, but it always proves to be jack telling his sorrows to the sympathetic midnight sprites in series of barks and long-drawn howls. Besides devoting himself to the Brigham family, he seems to be seeking earnestly an education like the world-famed lamb of Mary. In dogdom, absorption must be the mode of learning, for Jack, ig- norant of all foreign tongues, diligently attends French recitation. He evidently has been used to good society, perhaps in his puppy- hood, for he is fond of calling on the young ladies and even takes the trouble of going up three fiights of stairs. He has a heart which longs to be loved, a tail willing to wag at every proffered kindness. Wllile I am writing I can see some hu- 1113116 non-Brighamite stoop to pat Jack's head. Encouraged by this unusual demonstration of sympathy from human kind, he rushes wildly up to some other person, evidently hurrying to meet some appointment, and ,receives a cuff for his pai11s. jack has yet to learn the hard lesson that his room is better than his company in this institution of learning. He has been offered many comfortable homes, but seems to prefer the discomforts of col- lege life to those of country or city. 173 -if i A Proper Brief .Q Since work they say we must, for Cal Our talents must not rust.

The harsh horde from the north-land came wrathful. The band with grim weapons rushed down from the cold-lands Affrighted they saw them, tl1e weak-hearted maidens. They shrank in great fear, they fled in a throng. But lo! in their midst arose soon a leader. Marguerite was her name. Sweet and strong did she stand In the midst of the maidens. She called loud o'er the throng- "Fear not ye down-hearted! They are not what ye deem them, We yet shall undo them if ye are but steadfast. Let not your hearts waver." Emboldened the maidens went forth to the hard iight. Their weapons held fast, heads held high, Eyes beaming. Jo-stem with his thanes first called out his boast-- "We stand fast, we are mighty. Our horde fight hard and boldly. Think ye to o'ercome us! we'll hurl ye back weakened !" The air rang with uproar. The maidens rushed fearless where fighting waxed hotter, What mingling of weapons, what hand-to-hand warfare! The band of the Ja-stems brought help to their kinsmen. The maidens grew breathless. The foes without reckoning NVere seizing the glory. Then shouted their leader- "Take heart, ye fair warriors! We shall yet take the foes. Back, back to the battle !" 182 The foe fied before them. But hardly the maidens Had time to look about them When another host came, much greater and stronger. The horde of the Ablants came against them. The onslaught of the spear-rush Waxed stern and foreboding. The maidens were shrinking, their minds were bewildered Yet fought they more boldly And again seized the glory. The hoary--haired lord of the horde lay wounded, His byrmi was open- n A maiden saw this and hastened to slay him, Calling loud o'er all others- "We'l1 slay him as he lies, and all wounded warriors !" But her leader cried, "Bide a bit- Drive not the spear through them- Thiuk, they will be our friends and right true ones. ' They will be our liege-vassals and will serve us forever." Then the maids raised them up, healed their wounds, Called them "friends" The fiery looks became fond ones. The hosts now are friendly. The strife is all ended. 183 X 6' ff. J' -I X? Y .

L "Those are not considered good form," was tl1e retort. "You could never get through your journey with oneg the porter will patronize you and your fellow travellers will look with suspicion upon you." ' "Ah ! I have it l" exclaimed the second. And she transferred an A. B. tag to the bag she had chosen. II "In here you can see the History of Art class," said the Fresh- man. "Why does a girl every now and then rise and stand for a few 1no1nents?" asked the visitor. "She is reciting." "But I do not hear her say anything." "No one hears. It is not the custom." "Ah! Do they enjoy that?" Y "No, but they cultivate elegant voices." "Let us go awayf' said the visitor. "It is not fitting that we disturb them." 185 Things Freshmen Should Know J' "That lessons are subordinate to all things." That Mr. Robert Williston and the trunkman are not one and the same. That "singing up loud" in chapel 1nay insure a position on the College Glee Club. That "Faculty" do 11ot pursue Freshmen studies. That Freshmen do not "sit opposite" at table. That Williston Hall steps are Senior property. That the "flavor and sweetness of a good-bye is on your own threshold." That it is customary to have a quorum before transacting im- portant business in class meeting. That things taken from other girls' rooms are not stolen,-only borrowed. ' That "freshness" is always a sign of worth. That you must join every college organization to whose member- ship you are invited. That you must fhddlffitlbf furnish upper class girls with such tri- fling articles as they may demand. All Freshmen are advised to have bright, ready answers to the following questions before the Y. W. C. A. reception: How do you like Mount Holyoke? Where is your home? What course are you taking? What Hall do you live in? Whose table do you sit at? 186 Freshman Braids J' CREPT into chapel So silent and ineek- The bell had stopped ringing- - My shoes had a squeak, So I sat me down In the nearest chair, For to go to the front I didn't dare. Before me the Freshmen,- A glorious band, Young, sturdy and hopeful, The pride of our land,- Arose in their places, I gazed and I gazed, For all I could see Were the numberless braids. All kinds of braids That ever were known! All colors of hair On which sun ever shone ! There were braids of bright yellow, And braids of soft brown, And braids, too, as black As a Senior's gown. There were long braids and short braids And braids thick and thin, Braids double, braids single- One cannot begin 187 To tell of the braids Of marvellous hair, Bewild'ring, entrancing, Those Freshmen do wear. My eyes from the hymn-book Would wander away, Sure 'twere not well for me To come late every day, So bewitching, enchanting, And ravishing quite, Are the braids of the Freshmen- A wonderful sight! fa' Slhe came slowly down the aisle at the head of the proces- sional, the mellow light of the windows falling on his sweet upturned face and golden curls, I thought my little choir boy the perfect incarnation of goodness and beauty. His seat in the choir loft was near my own, and all through the service I feasted my eyes with his beauty, and my ears with the clear sweetness of the voice that rose high above the others. Above his sombre cassock his face looked very fair, and his great blue eyes, bright as stars, spoke the 'innocence and purity of a lovely soul. The flickering light of the candles lingered fondly on his bright golden head like a halo around a little saint. I longed to speak to him, to know what thought caused tl1at sweet, dreamy look on his boyish face. I leaned down to him and said: "What is it, dear?" He turned his great eyes to me and a glorious smile lit up his face. "Blan1ed hot, ain't it ?" he said. The music of the recessional filled the church, but I could 11013 singg I was thinking of my broken idol. 188 Table Talk 42' fAfter CHARLES LAMBJ HAVE an almost masculine partiality for meat-pies. When I am asked to dine at any great house, I long first for meat-pie .and then for the red sauce. I cannot defend the order of prefer- ence but by saying we have all some taste or other of too ancient a date to admit of our remembering distinctly that it was an acquired one. I remember perfectly tl1e first "fudge" and the first "Deacon Porter's hati' that I was attracted to, but I am not conscious of a time when meat-pies were introduced into my imagination. I had no aversion then-why should I now have ?-to those little and big, square cut and diamond shaped morsels, that, under their covers so crisp and Haky fioat about in that little lake of steaming hot gravy--the college meat-pie. V I like to see my old friends,whom several meals cannot diminish, looming up undaunted Cso they appear to our opticsj, yet changed and seasoned, for so in courtesy must we interpret the effect of oppos- ing forces, tl1e fire and water to which they have been submitted at the hand of tl1e decorous artist in the kitchen. Here is the once throbbing breast of a young and courtly rooster, who came from a country farm-house two miles off-see how distance failed to secure respect? And l1ere fthe same,-no, another,-for likeness is not iden- tity in meat-piesj, is a bit from the lamb that a little boy chased up tl1e mountain near Nonotuck. I was pointing out to my class-mates the other day, as we sat at table talking over tl1e savory dinner, Qwhich we are old-fashioned enough to have at the noon hourj, some of these Uspeciosa miracula" which we were then only the second time using, and could not help remarking how favorable circumstances had been to us this last year. I spoke of tl1e green vine decoration upon our china and was glad, I said, tl1at we could afford to please tl1e eye sometimes with trifies of this sort-when a passing shadow seemed to over-shadow the brow 189 of my companion. I am quick at detecting these su1nn1er cloudsin Susan. "I wish the good old times would come again," she said, "when we were not quite so rich. I clon't mean that I want to be poor, but there is a middle state,"' so it pleased her to go on, "in which I am sure we should be a great deal happier." "A middle state! do you mean last year?" I said. At this my friend, wishing to be taken seriously, was earnestly indignant. So remembering that that very morning, Susan, usually so painstaking, had let a platter drop while "carrying-out," and realizing probably she did not care to pay extra for t11e green vines, I was promptly stilled. "Do you remember," said my class-mate, too proud to appear anxious to turn the subject, "the lonely china sugar-bowls we had in the old building? A purchase is but a purchase now that we have money enough to spare. Formerly it used to be a triumph." I am uncertain how long this conversation might have continued had not a voice of pleasant authority dismissing the table said, "The young ladies may be excused." eip The Iunior Promenade .29 OFT, soft, in the firelight which gloweth before me, Reviving years vanished, days gone past recallg Through the swift changing gleam of the flames there The vision, most vivid, and clearest of ull.

But it is the conception of a man of fine presence and outer comelinessg of one wl1o has outgrown the rawness of youth and its attendant follies, wl1o is addicted neither to a cane, a monocle nor to razor toes, who does not imitate the japanese emblem in tl1e arrangement of his dusky locks, who smokes the pipe of peace and tranquillity, not a roll of white paperg who places the center of gravity for the universe outside himself, and who isu't lazy. 'XS 1X4 lk 'K' if IX' In prep school my ideal man was very definite and tangible, but in these latter days he has yielded to manifold other interests,- doubtless a case of the survival of the fittest. At present he is a sort of nebular hypothesis, vague, indistinct and universal. Perhaps his physique gives him his masterful air, but I feel as if it must be more than skin deep. He reverences womanhood and in- stinctively liftshis hat to his washerwoman, but often utterly ignores my presence. This ideal man of mine would never send me flowers. He's dignified, and yet I can imagine him mending his hose or eve11 playing paper dolls, if occasion should demand. I used to insist that he must be a man of a profession, but I can yield tl1at point 11ow, pro- vided his manhood be professional. I don't know his creed, but he always joins in the Lord's prayer when it is repeated in concert. His faults don't seem to have impressed me strongly, but I hope he has them, for when my analysis is tested by synthesis I'd like hi1n to be quite human. 192 Brief Description of a Specimen of the Genus Anthropos Idealos .sw ' ISTORY-The Anthropos Idealos is of ancient origin, tracing its genealogy directly back to the earliest dream of Eve, the wife of Adam.

I The Epic of Mount Holyoke as HE other day, while rummaging in an ancient cabinet belong- ing to the Mount Holyoke University Historical Society, I happened to notice that the wide board forming the bottom of the desk seemed loose, and o11 introducing a penknife into the crack, I found that it could be removed. On doing so, I discovered that the space below formed a sort of blind drawer, whic11 I was sure had been known to no recent librarian of the society. In it lay a large roll of manuscript, which on examination proved to be of considerable age, dating back to at least 1898, for it was i11 the ancient type writing, and therefore must have been copied before 1899, VVllCl1 tl1e now indispen- sable steno-auto-chirograph was invented. With considerable diffi- culty I perused the manuscript, and found it to be the long-lost epic of tl1e University, relating the story of its rise and early struggles in a kind of allegory. In spite of this form, it fills many gaps in the history of the University which tl1e researches of the society have been unable to bridge. It is in unrhymed iambic pentameter, a met- er much affected by the ancients, and called by them blank verse. O11 examining its literary style, I found it to be ofthe first excellence. The aid received by the goddess from mortals may seem unnat- ural, but in mythic times, gods, heroes and men lived i11 much closer relation than our more developed thought would place them. The poem is of too great length to reprint entire in this publica- tion, being suliicient to cover some four hundred pages, but an out- line may be given for the information of tl1e public, and members of the society may have access to the original on payment of a small sum, or after attendance at three consecutive regular meetings of the society. The story runs thus:- The goddess Scientia had been imprisoned in a dismal cave by the terrible giant Opinio, who thought that if she were allowed to es- cape, the Whole land would be in danger from l1er lawless acts. She was in reality a beautiful and benign being, but men believed 196 the tradition handed down to them from ages before, which account- ed her arrogant and destructive. At the time the story opens, her renewed cries had begun to attract attention, and a few were going about to accomplish her deliverance. The champion of the goddess was a woman named Constantia, who led the company of those seek- ing her release, and went through the land gathering volunteers for her forces. Tl1e terrible giant Opinio must first be overcome, and it was only after a severe struggle that he yielded. When he was subdued there was no trouble in gaining the consent of his wife, Pecunia, who always relied on the judgment of Opinio in such matters. It was necessary that a temple should be ready for the habitation of the goddess on her release, so her deliverers with the aid of Pe- cunia set about building one. At last it was finished, the goddess was freed, and upon her entry into the temple a regular service was organized. The champion became a priestess, and when the wor- shipers came in sucl1 numbers that she could not perform all the ser- vice, she called others to become her helpers. The service seemed to throw a Wonderful cl1arn1 over the worshipers, for a strong bond of love sprang up between them and after they had left the temple there remained with them a certain power to discern between the real and shadows in the world, which freed their lives from all fruit- less agitation and gave them an assured calm. One day a thunderbolt struck the temple and completely de- stroyed it, but the goddess was uninjured, for sucl1 things as thun- derbolts had no power over her. It was only by the terrible giant Opinio that she could be harmed. Before this time a band of twenty-one demi-gods had bound themselves by an oath to defend the goddess and they now stood ready to beseech the aid of the powerful Opinio and Pecunia. Opin- io and Pecunia had seen the good influence of tl1e old temple and its worship, and they were very willing to lend their aid for a new one. Pecunia had tl1e power of magic, so witl1 the approval of Opinio, she waved her wand three times over the ruins, and there sprang up, not one, but six beautiful temples for the worship of the goddess Scientia. Besides these temples there were several little wooden shrines erected by the way, where those worshipped who could not obtain admission to the temples because of the throngsg but these were afterward admitted. In the largest temple which was more 197 ' beautiful than any other in all the land, the goddess herself dwelt, but sent one of her spirit daughters with priestesses to rule in each of the others. The number of worshipers had so increased that now forty priestesses were required to carry on the service. Many of them had visited treasure-houses and had secured treasure for the temple, and some had traveled far to the east, whence they had brought rarest jewels and parchments many hundred years old, which they offered to Scientia. So the worship of the goddess grew until the people throughout all the land did homage to her, and the terrible giant Opinio and his wife Pecunia were her devoted servants. .95 Beyond the Notch , ea' EYOND the Notch, not far away From Aml1erst's halls of learning gray, There dwell the Fairest ofthe Fair, And the robin that loves the mountain air Of them sings ever his sweetest lay.

This spot-this sunny garden plot- Is fair alway, is fair alwayl 208 The Monday Morning Consciousness -2' IA supplement to "Consciousness" as treated by Prof. William jamesj E start with the fundamental axiom: that the first and fore- most concrete act which every one will afiirm to belong to his inner experience is, that consciousness of some sort goes on within him,-that states of mind succeed each other. Next we recognize that there is a distinct and separate phase of consciousness with its own peculiarindividuality. This state or phase, because research has shown it to prevail so universally on the first morning of the week of toil, we will call the Monday morning consciousness. In treating of this subjective state, I would acknowl- edge my indebtedness to the principles advanced by Professor James. The mental state begins with our waking moments on Monday morning. At dawn of consciousness, as we mentally reach back to make connection with the strain of thought broken by our slumberl, We are, perhaps, conscious of a late cheerful meditation on the com- parative value to the world of the theories of John Calvin and Hosea Ballon, the standpoint being that of a humanitarian. As we open our eyes on a new day, automatically we would bridge the gap between consciousness iust aroused and this past strain of thought. But Monday morning is a morning for action, and in the constant shifting of mental states within each personal conscious- ness, theological abstractions are superseded by a feeling of depres- sion at the multifarious duties and burdens of the day. There is something incongruous in the contiguity of these con- secutive conscionsnesses. We feel the lack of harmony in the di- verse elements of the fringes. The aesthetic sense for is it mora1?J receives a shock. A feeling of irritability diffuses itself through con- sciousness. As a result of the pathways previously formed in the nerve centers, we succumb to the practicalg or, more definitely, we become aware of various impressions of the calculus problems await- i 209 ' ing our attention, but only in the penumbral nascent way of a fringe of inarticulate affinities about them. But the brazen clang of the dreaded rising bell excites the per- ipheral auditory nerve organg the sensation is carried by the differ- ent nerves to the cerebral cortex, and so bursts upon the inner con- sciousness. ' This calls into being the anticipatory image of the sensorial consequences of decisive voluntary muscular movement, together with the knowledge gained, through the association of ideas, from previous experiences, tl1at such muscular movement is the part of wisdom. The fiat, however, that these consequences shall become actual and instantaneous, which completes tl1e psycl1ic state preceding mo- tor discharge, is wanting. The sense of bodily fatigue from all parts of the periphery and muscular structures is vivid in consciousness, alld a feeling of melancholy steals over the senses. A decision is reached by a creative contribution of something not reason, yet performing the functions of reason, the slow dead heave of the will, carrying with it subjectively and phenomenally the feel- ing of great effort, takes place, and by this desolate and acrid sort of act we make our entrance into a lonesome moral wilderness. The psychic state being thus one of gloom, the discharge along the motor nerves to the voluntary muscles exacts but tardy obedience in actual movements. The selective industry of the mind may now fail to individualize tl1e objects within range of vision. The eye may become fixed in vacancy, the corners of the mouth droop, the mind become a blank and the breast heave witl1 unconscious sighs. As necessity drives us forward to the occupations of the morning these external manifestations disappear, to be soon followed by the feeling that we are leading a double existence. The normal state returns and the Monday morning consciousness is known no more for a week. 210 From Her Point of View .9 8:40 9:00 9:50 10:40 11:30 2 Mon. Chapel Gym. Tues. " Music Thur. " Fri.

ND yet it is possible for one eve11 to have an ideal of a foolg for ' my part, I prefer a harmless fool. I not only could tolerate such an one, but would even consider him entertaining. But I should be very particular that he should conform to a certain stand- ard. For instance, his personal appearance must tally with a fond dream of mine, his hair must belong, curly and llaxeng his com- plexion, the color of ashes of roses. I am not particular as to the eyes, but prefer that they should not be of glassy the mustache ought to harmonize with the rest of the coloring. The hands and feet should be of lady-like proportions, and the stature not so great that it would be inappropriate to use him as a piece of parlor furniture. He must have a quiet and restful disposition, and must strive to cultivate an expression of docility. His reading must be confined to the "Ladies' Home Journal," "The Mount Holyoke," and kindred literary matter. He must never, never, never, have played marbles for keeps. It is indispensable that he should be particularly averse to conversation. If all men were such what a happy place this world would be ! But, alas! I fear tl1at so delicate and ethereal a creature is but a lovely dream--and live in constant terror lest this ideal like many another shall be sHA'r'r1sREn.

To the waters, to the mountains, to the stately bending trees, To the quaintzly patterned gables round which sweeps the evening breeze To Holyoke, grand old Holyoke, e'en from o'er the breadth of seas, Our hearts shall ever turn. Mt. Holyoke, Alma Mater, in the glory of thy past We behold a life prophetic of a glory that shall last, As the years shall but add richer to the memories that thou hast, And bring thee dearer days. In the strength of faith devoted were thy towers raised for thee, And that faith, O mighty mother, hath sent light from sea to sea, Yet tho'.thy life was glorious a greater life shall be, Thou shalt march ever on.

Each year brings its proo that honest, conscientious work is the greatest of adver- tisements. In addition 'to terms stated in circular, we would add! that original oratlons. debates, etc., range in price from 35 cents to 90 cents per hundred words, owing to style, length, nature of subject, etc. We ask you to patronize us, if you are in need of anything in our line.

We are at the present as in the past supplying the busy students of the countr with all kinds of Literary Productions. We still continue to furnish the highest quality olyLiterary Work at the very lowest rate. We are no strangers to the educational institutions of the countr'y,' and our work is becoming more and more a necessity to the student as he becomes a specialist in education, and to the man, who, as the victim of circumstances, is forced to perform literary labors, for which he has neither the time nor the adaptability. Our in- creasing business will testify to the truth of this statement, as well as to to the merits of our work, In the last nineteen years, during which time we have been conducting this bus- iness, it has increased from a merely local institution to the the limits of the English speak- ing world. Of yon, who have not patronized us before, we ask nothing but zt trial. We do not ask you to speculate upon the question of our honesty. We require no money in advance. f Our prices are as follows: High School Orations and Essays, 53 oo to 38.103 College Es- says, Orations and Debates, S3 oo to 515.003 Political Speeches, 5io.oo to 530.005 Lectures fl0,00 to 550.0413 Sermons from 5a cents to 5z5.oo. .

DEAR Suas:-We have received to-day letters from your firm recommending your liter- ary productions and requesting our patronage, or, in other words, asking that we counten- ance a systcmntized process of cheating. We hold it our duty to write to you on the subject so that your eyes may be opened to the evil resulting from your exceedingly questionable business. Has it ever dawned upon you, sirs, how harmful these consequences are, harmful not only to others but to yourselves? For surely no one can wilfully lead the pure and in- nocent astray without perverting his own moral character, You seek to increase your material wealth by playing upon the worst passions of human nature, 1'.r., laziness and de- ceit. forgetting the spiritual poverty which must inevitably attend upon such a course. Re- member that such ill gotten gains bring no blessing. lloping that you will give this your earnest consideration we are, Yours in the hope ofa better future. 234 be Ilamara a br nicle Vol.. 42 x 6.

SPRING is here again and it is a privilege to announce her arrival in our columns. In her train there come the usual number of youthful followers whose fancies are doubtlesslightly turn- ing to thoughts of love. The hedges and byways have again become the re- sort for little companies of info, and Pros- pect offers inducements not to be over- looked. The mad whirl of .social gaie- ties has ceased and athletics become the all-absorbing topic of Conversation. Am, readers of the CnRoN1c1,r12 will be interested in the College fleet on Lake Nonotuck. The flying squadron may be seen from almost any place along shore between four-thirty and six p. m. However, more than a passive interest in this fleet is necessary if we are to maintain a supremacy upon thc high sea. More boats are necessary and pri- vateeriug must cease. ' 'l'u1s1aE is a decided change in the gen- eral appearance of the girls' "cousins" fAmherst or otherwisel who frcqnentthe College just now, and the man who wears neither military nor navy uniform doesn't attract a second glance. IT is a critical period in our history. NVe have heard this before but it is none the less true. Great questions agitate the thoughtful mind, and of these ques- tions this one is the greatest: "Shall we have the Prom?" It is a matter for serious reflection and great issues may depend upon our answer. A sommcu must be very careful when he goes into battle, else he will be sure to hurt somebody. T HE LLAMARADA.

The past week has been a very suc- cessful one at all places of amusement, and the attendance in most cases unusu- ally good. The presentation of the thrilling tragedy, "Outside Locked Doors," was much enjoyed. It will be remembered this was first given the evening of Feb- ruary first, but was repeated by request. More interest was felt because the parts were taken by local talent. Misses Sturtevant and Hillhouse were inimitable in their roles, while the dra- matic scene in which Misses Davis, Blanchard, Day and Hall figured showed them to be no amateurs i11 the art of realistic presentation. The striking costumes and scenic effects added much to the general effect. Hapgood's latest comedy has been run- ning at Porter this week before an appre- ciative audience. The star attractions, 2 Miss Roraback, the world-renowned jumper, and Miss Turner, the lightning shoe unlacer, were a great success. Doors open at 9: 30. Play begins at 9:40. The bill is for one week only. The grand concert given by the Saf- ford Hall Comb Band was on Wednes- dayevening. In precision and clearness of delivery this band is far beyond Sousa's, while in phrasing and shading of tone it is a dangerous rival. Last evening was the first of aseries of lectures given by the Club for the Culti- vation of Correct Character. These lectures will all be by well known speakers, on bright and interest- ing subjects and will doubtless arouse much attention. Last evening Miss Williams spoke on, Ullfau is the Meas- ure of All Things." Those following will be, "Nothing Succeeds Like Suc- cessf' by Miss McLaren, and "Procras- tination, the Thief of Time," by Miss McKinley.' This evening there will be a lecture on "China, Its Possibilities and Proba- bilities," a subject which has lately aroused much interest among us, so we bespeak a full house. AROUND THE CAMPUS. Dandelions are out. I wonder why so many girls walk with their heads tipped back at right angles with their body, and stand gazing with hushed, expectant air into the tree tops? Do not ride your velocipede onthe sidewalk. Miss Seymour, '98, will take a Ph. D. in Theism. This is a late decision, made on account of unexpected honors gained recently in this subject. Miss Smith, '98, was found asleep on her way from Pearsons to Williston a few days since. We merely wake her and set her agoing again. THE LLAMARADA CHRONICLE. HOUSEKEEPERS' DEPARTMENT. "When a man Sees no way out of a difficulty there is always a woman's way." The contributors to the I-Iousekeepers' colun111 are requested to write on one side of each sheet of paper. It is also suggested that directions for mixing in- gredients should be very explicit and quantities should be definitely indicated. Only favorite, true and .tried recipes should be sent. Mere skeletonized recipes, such as some cook books give, are not desired. Hints on fancy work and general household information will be gladly received. STUFFED DATES. Take about thirty minutes of domestic work and mix well with a little chapel talk. Then add five recitations, none of them prepared, 'and stir in a few mo- ments' study. Beat this all together and add a glee club rehearsal. For frosting take a committee meeting and a recital. This may be made much richer by sprinkling in a meeting of the Llamy Board and substituting basket ball parties for the committee meeting. APPLE SAUCE. For a young couple starting out in life nothing is more necessary than economy on the part of the wife. A penny saved is a penny earned, and many dpennies may be laid away for a rainy ay by a careful use of scraps in the kitchen. I know of nothing in the line of des- sert so economical as apple sauce. With a .little ingenuity one lot of sauce may be made to last four or five days. Pre- pare the sauce in the usual way and serve hot on Monday. Tuesday some of the remains of Monday's dessert may be used in pie. Mixed with custard and scraps of old cake it makes a delicious dessert for Wednesday. Whatever is then left may be served on Thursday with tapioca. By a careful separation of tapioca and apples enough may be se- cured to make tempting little tarts for lunch on Friday. On Saturday I would suggest a change, unless your husband is very fond of apple sauce. 2 BOOK NOTICES. "The Still Alarm," by Clinty Curtis. This fascinating little volume is quite personal in its effort, and has been suc- cessful in arousing a spirit of acquies- cence to the natural law in the college world. Price 31.50. "Studies in Nature," by Louise Rora- back. Any work by this celebrated naturalist is a boon to our young nature students. This new work is fresh from the pen of genius, and gives both philo- sophical and scientific treatment of a subject of universal interest. This book will prove a valuable addition to any library collection. Bound in half calf. Price 32.00 "Essays on Profitable Idlenessf' by N. C. Burleigh. This volume will be found invaluable to many college stu- dents. It is a thorough and logical treatment of a much neglected subject.

The drug should be taken about I0 p. ni. and has a mild, soothing effect for about an hour. This is followed by a series of sparkling and bril- liant ideas, which come fluently, and the essay can be prepared with almost no effort on thc part of the student. For sale at Brig- ham Hall.

College girls are now, as always, very prominently before the public, and their gowns absorb a great deal of attention, not only from other people, but from themselves. This year it would seem as though the costumes designed for the college are particularly attractive, and certainly the fashions seem to be espe- cially suitable to young people. There is less exaggeration in everything than there was a year ago Street costumes are exceedingly simple. Indoor gowns are fashionable in all colors and mater- ials. Great attention is paid to the gown a girl wears ather first college reception, which entertainment now takes place in the afternoon, and to which all are bid- den. High-necked gowns are obligatory and there must not be the slightest ap- proach to an evening gown. For other receptions during the college year there must be some costume smarter than the one worn at the first reception. A very smart and yet simple gown is made of a combination of materials. The skirt is perfectly plain and not very wide, hung full at the back and reaching the shoe tops only. Skirts longer than this for receptions are decidedly passe. The waist is of gingham or calico, with a deep yoke in the back and a slightyoke or fullness in the front. The waist is trimmed down the front with three but- tonholes. A still more striking effect may be secured by the use of silver studs in said buttonholes. With this is worn a stiff, white collar, fully three inches high, and astring tie of any color The sleeves are finished with a deep cuff only. With this is carried a handkerchief. The hat is a small, soft black one, kll0W11 as the tam, embroid- ered with gold letters on the under side. The cloaks worn over evening gowns are such marvels of workmanship and beauty this year that it seems almost a pity that they can only be used as wraps. A superb one from la Maison Deuilhe et Angles is made of dark blue heavy cloth, THE LLAMARADA CHRONICLE. reaching to the knees. It is trimmed over the shoulders with a pointed hood, lined with some heavy plaid material. At the bottom of the cloak or cape are three or four rows of stitching. There is a high collar made of the same ma- terial as the cape. With this elegant wrap is worn a small dark blue cap to preserve the coiffure. The hats this season are more striking than ever before. Such combinations of colors and materials have never before met our eyes. One of the most decidedly chic and Frenchy seen on the boulevards since the opening of the season was a small black hat. A close-fitting cap ar- rangement, pointed in back and front, served to fasten the hat securely to the head. The crown was a stiff square, covered with black cloth and so fastened to the cap as to bring one corner direct- ly in line with the nose Under the crown, on the left hand side of the cap, was a bow of sky blue satin ribbon, which gave a tone to the whole creation. In its simplicity and severity of outline it was one of the most attractive seen. Another hat which attracted quite as much attention as the one described, was of brown felt. The soft crown was dented in the middle, and tl1e wide brim was turned down in the back. Around the crown was a band of brown leather. It strongly resembled the sombrero of the West, but had a much more dashing air about it. It is predicted that this style will become quite the rage. LATEST POPULAR SONGS. Jusr our.

When you see the green things growing, When the birds begin to sing, When the girls go out a-rowing, Then you think it must be spring. When you see the Amherst "cousins" I-lither come with joyous tread, When you shirk the weight of lessons, And exams inspire no dread, When in basket bali and field day Conversation finds its bent, When the Seniors look so mournful And an added charm is lent, When our slzrubxleave out and blossom, AudthcFreshn1an, verdure bright, Has 'mid other signs of Spring-time Almost faded out of sight, As I said before- When all these combinations do appear, We are certain, yes, quite certain, That the lovely Spring time's here. The Rock Ridge Tragedy, VENGEANCE REVENGED. Bv JAURALIQAN Inmsv. The sun was sinking in blood-red splendor behind the verdure-clad hills, and the silvery stream, which rippled musically over its glistening stones, re- flected in its still bosom the leaf-laden bowers of the overhanging trees, and the road, which wound along its bank, look- ed like a many-hued ribbon in the daz- zling rays of tl1e fast vanishing orb of day, while a narrow, rocky path, scarce- ly wide enough for a single traveler, writhed like a venomous serpent EldOW11 the hillside. Suddenly, outlined with startling dis- tinctness, appeared on the rocky path a solitary horseman, silhouetted against the radiant orb, fast sinking like a fiery lover into the bosom of the blushing West, about whom, as his pranciug steed bore him onward, the purple shadows 241 wreathed themselves, as it were,symbols of the mighty passions which were stir- ring his soul to the very depths of his nature. Little knew young Algernon Montmorency-scion of a lordly house, possessed of wealth, youth and beauty, one who had been fickle Fortune's fav- orite, upon who1n,until recently, no dark shadow had been cast by the cruel Fates -little knew he of the gusts of passion which should so soo11 sweep over his frame and open the healing wounds of' his lacerated heart and cause again to well forth those mighty streams of grief which had left him benumbed and heart- broken. In the meantime, while Lord Algernon Montmorency was feasting his glorious eyes on the magnificence of the land- scape spread before him, there came riding slowly along the road beside the stream a maid of dazzling beauty, seated on the back of a milk-white steed, whose flashing eyes, dilated nostrils and proud- ly arched neck at a glance revealed his Arabian blood, a steed worthy to bear so fair a burden. The dark eyes of the maiden gleamed like stars under the heavy black lashes, and round her marble forehead clustered ringlets of red-gold hair, which shone in the rays of the setting sun like the burnished crown of an Eastern queen, and on her cheeks, so wondrous fair, rested the bloom of health, which told of a life free from care, and between her parted lips, so like two rubies, gleamed her teeth, which put the pearls to shame by their dazzling whiteness, and on the tapering fingers of her lily-like hand flashed jewels, fit to grace the hand which holds a scepter. Little knew fair Gwendolyn Montague what the Fates had in store for her as she rode along the stream, trilling snatches of song in dulcettones. Suddenly, without warning, there dashed across the road adiminutive jack rabbit, which, though small and quite harmless in itself, by the suddenness of its appearance startled the fiery offspring of Arabia, which reared land plunged madly at the sight. A wild, despairing shriek broke from the blanched lips of the fair Lady Gwendolyn, gradually her THE LLAMARADA CHRONICLE. hands relaxed their hold on the jeweled reins, and with a little sigh she slipped from the saddle and fell headlong to the earth. For a moment Lord Algernon Mont- morency was paralyzed by the wail which fell upon his ears, then he dashed madly down the patl1 to the side of the prostrate damsel. With a gasp he start- ed back. "Gwendolyn! Oh, no, it can- not be! What have I done to be thus blest by the sight of my lostlove, O For- tune? Gwendolyn, my love, my sweet, once more can I press thee to my throb- bing heart and call thee mine, mine! How coulds't thou for one monientthink that I could e'er be false to thee? Knows't thou not thy countenance alone is graven on my heart? Oh, Fitzgerald Wellington, coulda-s't thou but see me now, with this fair burden in my arms, thy vengeance would not be so sweet!" A fluttering of the eye lids, along drawn sigh, and Lady Gwendolyn, warmed back to life by the burning kisses on her brow, opened her starry eyes and beheld, bent caressingly o'er her, a faceof rare strength and beauty. For a moment she gazed, fascinated by the light of his dark eyes. Then a shuddering sigh escaped her lips and she gasped: "Lord Montxnorency, how dares't thou! Hence, villain, touch mc not! " Shuddering like a wounded roc, her eyes closed again in blessed uncon- sciousness and she sank once more upon his breast. With eyes full of agony he watched beside the pallid form as night with her thousand eyes drew nigh. Suddenly a voice hissed in his ear: "Thou blackguard, thou villain!" and Lord Fitzgerald stood beside them.

B BBITT' Q The merits of B. T. BABB1'rT's 1776 SOAP POWDER Will be fully appreciated by every housewife, provided she uses it properly. Hence our desire to call special attention to the directionsrfor use. In the first place never use it with soap, sul-soda, or any other compound, as it is a needless waste. Second. Always dis- solve the soap powder first in a small quantity of very hot or boiling water. This is very important. The usual proportion is one table- spoonful of powder to one pint-of boiling water. When thorough- ly dissolved you can add either cold or warm water to reduce it. For washing clothes follow tl1e directions AND and 1776 Soap Powder carefully as given on each package, and you will iind your wash done with little labor and in one half the us- 1.1211tll1l6..Il1S3.VCStlll1B, labor, and money.
