We have endeavored to place before our readers a panoramic view of persons and events which have flitted across the canvas of the college world during the past year. It is hoped that there may be found within this volume intellectual food acceptable to all, that no one may feel that anything has been written for their individual benefit or hurt ; “ How shall I hope to express myself to each man’s humour and conceit, or to give satisfaction to all.” We feel very grateful to all those who have in an}- way contributed to this book, whether by word or deed ; and send it forth hoping that you, kind reader, will be lenient in passing judgment upon it. io COLORS— CARDINAL AND QRAT.

N chronicling the rise, progress, and magnificent achieve- ments of the Class of ’95 in its slow but determinate advancement from Prepdom to the dignified and exalted position of a college Senior, the historian cogitates, contemplates, meditates, hesitates, tarries, pauses, — in a word, he is in a dilemma. He politely withholds the enorm- ous lapse of time that intervened from the first entrance of a few of our men into Prep until the time of their graduation ; from the time the seed, whose fruits the world is about to enjoy, first received fond nursing — for fear that he might be plunged into the subterranean caves of Pompeii or Hercu- laneum. He will not attempt, in liis yet meagre knowledge of anthropology, to nation- alize his worthy classmates ; he dare not reveal their chivalric nor their in animo matrimonial affiliations; he cannot accuse them of “crib- bing”; he must not overlaud the holy virtues of the sanctimonious or goody-goodies, lest, in centuries hence, these historic lines might fall into the hands of some well-meaning friends, and a son of Muhlenberg be canon- ized. No ! This is not our scope nor intent. Every member of this illustrious Class stands as an “historical nucleus,” irradiat- ing like stars the incandescent light of the honest and sound principles which Muhlenberg imparts to her students. We are not of age ; we are only twenty. But if we deem it worthy to follow in the footsteps of the Reverend of our Class, 25 we shall some day be twenty-won. The paths of all were not strewn with daisiesf, yet there was a little sunshinef in every soul, even if it struck only the sole of a Bauer ' s J shoe between Bethlehem and Allentown. The recipient of a chestnut highly appreciates the imitative originality of a few of the Class. IVir brauchen niclit bange zu sein in diesem Drange. Wir liaben einen Bauer , zivei Mueller , einen Becker , einen Schmidt, und zwei Schneider. Morgens, Mittags, rind Abends essen wir unsern Krapf mit der Gabel. So bald der Schnee vergangen ist kommt der Lenz. Es i t aber doch Schadt dasz der arme Lazarus bei uns ist. Hier heisst es, Stopp. Our motto, “ In virtute et sapientia Jidemus, " in colors of maroon and white, whether on campus or in class-room, incited its loyal bearers with a never-despairing energy, so that to-day ’95 stands the only Class that can boast of never having met its superior, nor even its equal. The idea of attempting to write the history of so exemplary a Class in five hundred words is simply preposterous. But if any desire to acquaint themselves with the real history of this Class, we heartily recommend them to the Faculty, who have nothing but words of praise for us. Dear to our hearts shall be the memory of the past ; and in leaving this fair city and these hallowed walls of old Muhlenberg, we bid ye Faculty, students, and friends of Allentown, a sad farewell. “ Adieu ! Such is the word for us, ’Tis more than word, ’tis prayer ; They do not part who do part thus, For God is everywhere.” February 9, 1895.

A HOWLING SUCCESS. 71 NOTHER page turned in the book of the ■F ' years ! Another court entered in this temple of learning ! New Rubicons crossed, new heights attained, new powers acquired ! We have walked in wisdom’s pleasant ways and plucked some of her choicest fruits, and already in our garners are gathered sheaves that tell of the early sowing, the patient plodding, the diligent reaping. We have sat at Gamaliel’s feet ; we shall soon apply the wisdom acquired to the business of life. Juniors, ’96 ! As the un- sightly caterpillar passes from its chrysalis state into the beautiful butterfly, so has this body, lay- ing aside childish imperfections, grown to the stature of the ma- turer man, more fully developed, more gracefully proportioned. Varied have been our experiences and dark some of our days, yet the silvery lining has always dispelled its enveloping darkness, and the sunshine been but the brighter. The magician of fairy lore needed only to polish Aladdin’s lamp, and straightway the genius appeared, ready to do his bidding. In like manner have we endeavored to brighten these minds of ours, and the wealth- bringing spirits of learning and refinement scattered their treasures all about us. 32 Since the last chapter of our history was written, but few changes have been made in our number. We have lost three of our classmates, two of whom honorably represent us in the classic halls of Franklin and Marshall, and the third has cast his lot with the company of the Benedicts. We were glad to receive into our midst a worthy brother from Selinsgrove, and now number twenty-five, a perfect square whose symmetrical propor- tions, we sincerely hope, may not be destroyed ere the curtain has fallen upon the last act of our college course. Comedy, with its studies of character, as well as books, amusing by-plays, and portrayal of life’s brighter moments, has been mingled with the little dramas enacted even on a college stage, and many a lesson has been learned that was not taught in class-room ; many a precious thought, like fragrant rose leaves, treasured in memory’s jar ; many a seed silently sown in a brother’s heart, whose fruit will be sweet in the years beyond. Our lines have fallen in pleasant places. Daily we have met the minds that rule the world. The blind bard of Greece swept his harp strings and, in stately verse, celebrated the deadly war ’twixt Greece and Priam’s land, while Rome’s sweetest lyrist sang of grace and beauty and love’s delights, and, with a master’s stroke, drew pictures of luxurious living in his patron’s palace and of quiet days spent in restful content ' neath Italian skies. We have sought to thread the intricate labyrinths of the Calculus, to follow great logicians in their careful reasoning, to learn how to look within our own souls and read the secrets there inscribed, and to view some of nature’s most wonderful phenomena exhibited to us in the scientific school. With Chaucer we have gone on pilgrimage to Canterbury, Spenser has recounted to our attentive ears the virtues of his Faery Queen, and Schiller has charmed us with his realistic William Tell in the beautiful mother-tongue. Sacred History has held our close attention and, in Natural Theology, our wise instructor bade us look “ through nature up to nature’s God.” 33 Thus, in assiduous application to duty, in healthful sports, and in occasional delightful social functions, our Junior days are passing, and we turn our thoughts to the approaching oratorical contest and seek to pierce the unknown hereafter with a prophet’s ken. High thoughts we would entertain, good habits cultivate, and noble houses build, tenements wherein our souls may dwell and hold sweet converse with the great and good of all ages, grow in every grace and charm of a lovely life, whence they may here- after soar through realms yet undiscovered to fields of Paradise above, on whose fair plains the work shall ceaselessly continue.

SYKES. mlleTbotanist 1 A LMOST two years ago our gal- lant band, the warriors of ’97, now so great in deed and fame, first gathered and prepared for warfare. Whence did we come ? What was our purpose? From the four quarters, north, east, south, YW ' yL N and west, we came to wage war ' " V. ' with that invincible giant, the i V ' ' p , v .0- v ' dread Curriculum. It is true, } when first we looked upo n the enemy and beheld him in his strength, armed with the sciences and the toughest classics, we entered his territory with fear and trembling. But we feared not long. Early on the first day of our march we met one, Ziegenfuss, w T ho spoke to us in glowing terms, and bade us fight bravely and gain the victory. Then did our hearts burn within us, and we longed for the fray. Then we resolved to fight on foot, for, Mantitheus- like, we despised the cavalry. We adopted our standard with colors, seal brown and Nile green, and selected our war cry, w 7 hich is, “Know the Oppor- tunity.” Thus prepared for battle, we grew very bold indeed. During our first campaign we met many champions from the army of the Giant. These were mostly of Greek and Latin origin while others were from the Arabians. Many of these we killed in the 42 first battle, while others were fatally wounded. So successful was our first campaign that only one of our number was compelled to retire on account of his wounds. Once only did we attack any of the other invading tribes. A tribe in the immediate vicinity had become very insolent and we resolved to punish it. One night we invaded their camp and ravaged and destroyed their possessions. Afterward, however, we relented and agreed to pay half the costs. Toward the close of our campaign we met a champion very fierce and strong. The fight was long and valiantly waged, but in the end we overcame, and our final contest is renowned for its deeds of bravery and heroism. Here one of our band, Fretz by name, did mnch that is worthy of praise. This battle was ever afterward known as the “ Cremation of Livy.” Thus ended our final campaign. After about two months’ furlough, the bugle again sounded. The muster showed : one man killed ; one cashiered ; six honor- ably discharged ; and two without honor. This left us twenty- one, and we received seven new recruits so that we then numbered twenty-eight. During this year, besides the war with the Giant, we had to contend with another tribe of invaders called Class of ’98. However, we easily vanquished this rebel horde in a battle named the cane rush. One of the events of this campaign was a great feast — the Sophomore banquet — which we, warriors, indulged in. This was designed to stimulate us that we might fight the better. The campaign has been very successful so far, and we hope, if possi- ble, even to excel our former conquests. For the future we intend to keep on until we have completely conquered the enemy and then, perhaps, we may rule in his stead. The members of ’97 were first called Indians at the Sophomore banquet. 43 “IRespice a fftnem.” COLORS, DARK-BLUE AND LAVENDER. OFFICERS. President, . FIRST TERM. ELI SYLVESTER MANTZ.

BY HENRY F. HEHI,. T N September of the year 1894, A there entered the spacious and classic halls of Muhlenberg College thirty-eight young men whose ob- ject was and still is the pursuit of knowledge. The worthy Faculty at once, without the slightest hesitation, pro- nounced them the most brilliant troop of men that ever reclined upon the soft couches of Muhlenberg’s recitation rooms. A short time after entering col- lege a meeting was held in which they organized themselves as the Class of ’98, assuming as their motto, “ Respice ad Finem.” Not long after their organiza- tion the Sophomores, true to their name, challenged them to a cane rush and the Freshmen were in honor bound to accept. On a September afternoon the two classes met in Merkel Avenue where the fiercest battle occurred that was ever waged in Muhlenberg’s halls. It was a battle of brawn and brain and the Freshmen ex- celled in both. This terrible contest will ever remain fresh in the memories both of the participants and of the observers. For two long hours the contest waxed fiercer and fiercer and only the ap- pearance of a member of the Faculty put an end to it. 48 Shortly after the opening of the term occurred a noteworthy event, the royal reception tendered to our honored and beloved President, Dr. Seip. In the parade marking the occasion, the Freshmen distinguished themselves both by their marching and vociferous rendition of the class and college yells. At the recep- tion given in the Chapel a few evenings later, they were again prominent by reason of their large attendance. The writer men- tions this in his history specially because the new men were anxiously waiting for the coming of their President whose face they had never seen, whose words they had not yet heard. It is, perhaps, unnecessary to state that the President, together with the other members of the Faculty, has received the respect and esteem of the entire Freshman class. During the first term Dr. Herbst, Professor of Physical Cul- ture, organized a class whose exercises are of great benefit. On the twenty-third of January the class took its sleigh-ride to Rothrocksville where a banquet was enjoyed, followed by many toasts. It was an occasion of festivity to all who were able to go. The number in attendance was the largest in the annals of the College at a similar affair. It is with great regret that the writer must state that the class lost a few of its members on account of sickness and for various other reasons. Although organized but five months, the class has a history of which its members may feel proud. It will try to follow out its motto, “ Keep Your Eye to the End,” by striving for ‘‘Ne plus ultra.” 49 cadcii)ic )epartii)CT t. “ There appears in our age a pride and petulancy in youth, zealous to cast off the sentiments of their fathers and teachers.” — Dr. I.

JOHN’S EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH, Sunday, June 17, 1894. TEXT : “ Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies : and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand ; and in her left hand riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her; and happy is every one that retaineth her.” — Prov. 3 : 13-18.

Up and away ! for lovely paths are these To tread, when the glad sun is on his throne : Less pleasant, and less safe when Cythia’s lamp, With doubtful glimmer, lights the dreary forest.” — Ettrick Forest. 104 Prints (7ai)tiis. JJtHIS morn I heard the spring birds sing, In the larches near my door ; The mates were calling, piping For their comrades o’er the moor. My heart welled forth in gladness, To the music of their song ; For Winter’s prolonged sadness Gives way to Spring-time’s morn. E’en now the breath of flowers Fans my fevered cheek ; Wafting me to bowers Forespeaking Summer’s ease. Then le t the Spring birds warble Their quaint, but ancient lays ; Bespeaking joy and gladness In the balmy Summer days. 105 " V olitiorjal J)rearq T HE student’s life is, much of it at least, a volitional dream. To the nature and temperament which make the real stu- dent, reflection and imaginative forecast are conditions to which he recurs whenever leisure from unwelcome action permits. As his very name declares, he is one who studies ; and study implies that grouping and regrouping of fact and truth by which we rise to universals, or deliberately build out the “might have been’s,” or construct the wished for “ may be’s.’’ The bare facts of a student’s life are bane and meagre enough. There is nothing enticing in setting it forth as the cultivation of the muse upon the sustentation of oat-meal ; and yet there have been youth for whom this time of physical meanness and self- denial is still lighted up with a halo of glory. The man “ sent to college,’’ whose interests lie all outside of its work, who makes it merely a period of dissipation and waste of parental money, or whose ambition is to cultivate brawn rather than brain, knows, of course, very little of this : animals are not imaginative. But the genuine student, introduced into a universe of new ideas, behold- ing worlds unknown, seemingly created just then and there, finds a strange thrill of joy in his new powers, and a constant yearning to exercise them. What are ‘ ‘ the reveries of a bachelor ’ ’ to the dreams of this this youthful pre-bachelor, expectant A.B. ? In his lexicon there is, as yet, no such word as “impossible.” What may he not be- come, if he will ? He thinks himself back with the Trojan adven- turer in Dido’s presence ; he fights with Hector or Achilles out- side of Troy’s walls. He reconstructs the Shakesperean stage and iq6 eliminates its slender objectivities of scenery ; and then his purely imaginative stage expands and is peopled with actors working out tragedy or comedy for him. He accomplishes the incompat- ible, and sits in the audience to behold himself play upon the stage. It is his first flight, quite frequently, from the nest of home. He is his own master ! He can rise when he pleases, go to bed when he will. He can miss breakfast, and no one calls him. limitations are simply sundry hours of recitation, and chapel. He has no errands to run, no snow to shovel. Delightful liberty ! In itself, how it provokes him to wild imaginings and wonderful possibilities. He is a man even if beardless and less than a score of years old. His room is his own ; things stay where he puts them, although not where he thinks he puts them. His only misery is that dust and disorder are so malignantly active. There he may sit, and think, and think, until he falls asleep first and go to bed afterwards. Of what does he think ? His dream is volitional ; it is not the dream of sleep that carries us whither we would not go. It is the movement of an electric launch ! Press but a button, turn but ever so slightly a lever, and we move forward or backward, this way or that way. The sight of a sweet face may send him upon a voyage of courtship, marriage, pater- nity, and old age. The lack of another “five” may make him an inventor growing richer and richer, rebuilding his college walls, rearing his own stately palace, wealthy and honored beyond record or comparison. The far-off toll of a locomotive bell starts him on a trip to California ; or a bad half-hour in geology makes him join an exploring party to the earth’s centre, — and get back too late for an effective journey to recitation on morphic and metamorphic rocks. Where can he not go ! What can he not do ! Books are everywhere about him ; and the whole world is in them. The whole world, even heaven and hell, are there be- fore him, with volition as his guide. There is nothing hid from him in his grand tour of time or space, save the corners into which 107 he does not care to peep. The rest of his living and studying is a means : his volitional dream is an end in itself. The very meagre- ness of his outside world drives him in upon himself. Make his apartments luxurious, enforce the ordinary ways of life upon him, give him lackeys and horses, clubs and balls, and you have im- posed a “ crassa Minerva” upon him and sterilized his dream powers; he can call up nothing now grander than a “grand stand,” nothing lighter than an expensive feast of dainty dishes and a freshet of costly drinks ! He will never again enjoy the volitional dream as he does now. He goes out from college, and the enchanter’s wand slips away from him. He can never return again. He comes back at Commencement times, and tries to make believe, but it does not go. How often in his brief moments of contemplation he thinks- of his good old college days ! His pocket-book is fatter now ; but so is his brain. Pegasus has flown away ; and only cart-horses are in his stalls. But he has lived ! And the energies born in those hours when his soul was stirred within him irradiate his life like a sunset golden if no longer darting fierce rays. He has dreamed ; and now he goes forth to realize the visions of his youth. i I) pics froip tbc f iVcr. JJTHERE is a peculiar something- about the sea, and those things A which pertain to it, that is indefinable. We are impressed by the vastness of space as we stand upon the deck of a vessel and look away to the edge of a circle where sea and sky seem to kiss each other ; or survey Father Neptune’s domain from the sandy beach where the great sea waves come rolling in effacing the im- print of many a foot upon it s fickle surface, or storming the walls of a miniature castle built by a child. There is something in these associations which appeals to the infinite in man which im- presses him, which says “ here are grandeur and majesty.” Eet us then for a moment leave old ocean’s waste, and see what the ripples from the busy stream before us, which flows on- ward forever, have to say. Men have come and gone ; times and customs have changed ; but this stream’s course is onward, on- ward. A thrill of joy enters my heart as I behold it once more. It speaks to me of home, of love, of that sweet time which is sur- mounted by the halo of the past. Could it speak, it would tell many a wild and weird tale ; it would remind me that far up in the 11 North countree,” in the olden times, it had supplied many a toothsome dish to the jolly friars who were adepts in beguiling the finny tribe from their shad} ' coves ; nor would it forget to re- late the deeds of many a noble knight from the castle which had once graced its verdant banks. It was our delight in boyhood’s sunny hours to while away the time upon its busy quay watching the longshoremen who brought up from the bowels of the ships of the deep, peculiar 109 treasures from countries far away ; to observe the fussy little tugs as they guided some homeward-bound vessel to its berth ; to notice intensely the preparations of a vessel outward bound, whose masts and spars had been restored to order ; whose anchor had been weighed to the “ yo heave oh ” of the sailor’s song ; then to view her departure, as she dropped slowly down the river with the ebb of the tide, with a feeling of regret, and a yearning to go also. The day on which a launch took place was always accounted a red-letter day in the calendar. It marked the birth, as it were, of a new craft. No longer were the stocks to hold her in bondage ; no more was she to figure as a nameless thing, for this was the natal day ; how gracefully she glided from the ways into the watery elements amidst the cheers of the assembled multitude. No longer was she a nonentity, but became alive, for she had re- ceived a name ; she was henceforth destined to fathom the mys- teries of the deep ; to brave the storms of wintry seas, or bask near summer’s strand. Our chief delight was to make friends with those old men whose sea days were past, and who now busied themselves in mending their fishing nets, putting on new sinkers, and replacing the floats. They took an honest pride in their boats, caring for them as tenderly as one would a child. Each one would have his boat the prettiest on the river, always affixing a name suitable to the owner’s fancy. Sometimes it would be the name of a gallant barque which had sought “Davy Jone’s locker,’ ’ or of a loved one now passed to the great beyond. These men were, however, not all work, but had their mo- ments of sunshine, which generally came at eventide. When the tackle had been housed so that the surroundings were ship-shape, once more many of these kindred spirits would assemble to relate stories of adventure and travel. We never tired of listening to them, always wishing that manhood’s days were in our hands to try the mighty main. The more danger there seemed to be in the i io story, the more we cared to listen. They would tell of cargoes shifting, of hurricanes weathered in treacherous seas ; one mo- ment their gallant barque would ride upon the crest of a wave as if trying to scale the home of the stars, whilst the next would find her laboring in the trough of the sea menaced by angry billows to larboard and starboard, threatening to engulf both ship and crew. There were times when their stories partook of summer seas, and balmy breezes upon whose wings sweet odors, from a distant coast, were borne ; or perhaps they were full of reminis- cences of adventures ashore in the different ports at which they had touched. They never failed to color these stories with ac- counts of their own exploits with the natives whose words were but jargon in their ears. Thus many an evening was spent till the lustrous moon had mounted far up into the heavens, proclaim- ing that Morpheus was waiting to receive us. hi J ETIMES I rose and walked forth to hear Nature’s glad song upon a summer ' s morn, To breathe the balmy breeze which swept along From mountain tops and the far distant mere ; Heaven’s great Lord to bless with nature near, His handiwork observe nor cease to praise, Those objects, tokens, signs of potent ways, Conceived, brought forth in long eternal days. The rosy-fingered goddess of the morn, Night’s sable robes with deftness had withdrawn, Each fleeting cloudlet she had tipped with gold, With heavenly light she kissed each mountain hoar, Anon bright Helios’s chariot doth appear, As monarch bold he flashes far and near, Clothed in royal robes of flashing light, Impossible I viewed the dazzling sight, Whilst onward sped his coursers chasing night. Forth sprung the lark, forsook her lowly bed, To greet the sun in this glad morning hour, To God her morning anthem had she sped, And called forth each songster from its bower. All around from hill and mound, and ivy-mantled tower, From coppice green, from field and fell there ’rose Sweet sound that burst from thousand feathered throats, Flung to the hills whence up and down it roamed, A tribute old yet new, the matin song. ' Twas then all nature in obeisance bowed, And attitude of reverence assumed, The soil’s own son stood meekly by his plough, Uplift his hands breathed forth a prayer too true. The brook which prattled gaily o’er the stones, One moment stopped, then sped its merry way, While Nature from strong oak to reed so frail Both beasts and insects, says this ancient tale, In reverence bowed till matins had been sung. I 12 Y " esterday. JIT HE to-morrows of our lives often cause us much anxiety. A They are the times of our hopes and fears, joys and sor- rows, plans and expectations. It matters not where we are, or in what we may be engaged, the to-morrow is everpresent. It may be that to-morrow will behold the commencement of that journey upon which all men must go, and for which many make no pre- paration. We may be deeply absorbed in momentary pleasures, but the sweetest joys of one’s life are found in the yesterdays of our earthly sojourn. It was but yesterday that we amused ourselves by building imaginary castles out of the blocks which were profusely deco- rated with what seemed to be that insurmount able obstacle, the alphabet. There came a time when these had lost their charm ; we craved something which had as yet not been revealed to us. The pleasures which these had afforded to us upon introduction no longer existed. A change took place. A new world was opened to us in the form of nursery rhymes. Our child mind now received food, which, being assimilated, yielded both profit and pleasure. It was here that we found the gallant knight of the hobby-horse and rode with him in fancy to many a gay assemblage ; nor were we found absent when he was about to appear in the tournament, over which Lady Bountiful sat as Queen of the lists, prepared to award the prize to the victor in the fight. It was here that we beheld the brave soldier, bedecked with paper cap, and formidable tin ll 3 sword slung by his side, ready, to go forth throughout the whole round world to defend the weak, and to banish wrong from the world forever. How often we have, in fancy, made excursions to the castle where dwelt a giant more terrible than “Jack the Giant-Killer ’’ ever slew. With what tender sympathies did we view the harsh treatment of “Cinderella’’ at the hands of those who ought to have loved her ; yet our hearts leaped with joy when Prince Beau- tiful smiled upon her, and claimed her as his own. In the yester- day of childhood, we never tired of relating the antics of “ Mother Hubbard’s dog to that great-aunt who allowed herself to be car- ried off into some remote corner, where she could in fancy live over her own childhood’s hours. Oftentimes have we tried to teach Miss Puss to imitate her fabled ancestor “Puss in Boots,’’ but failed to accomplish our end because Miss Puss had degenerated, no longer possessing her aircestor’s virtues. To imagine ourselves the king in “Sing a song of Sixpence ’’ was the pleasure of many a day-dream in the yesterday that has passed ; whilst we anxiously watched and waited to see whether a blackbird would dare to seize the maiden’s nose as she hung out the clothes. The “ House that Jack built” was a fairy habitation in our imagination, but we could never find a Mr. Rodent who would allow himself to fall into the tender em- braces of Miss Puss ; whilst the coy maiden allowed the “ man all tattered and torn ” to woo her, but in vain. It was with a feeling of pleasure and delight that we perused the story of “ Dick Whittington and his Cat ; ” listening intently and hearing in fancy the sounds of silvery bells as they flung out upon the breeze; “ turn again, Whittington, turn again, Whit- tington.” There yet lingers in our memories faint recollections of a ride to “ Banbury Cross” upon our mother’s knee. Easter Day is a yesterday of childhood which held for us many joys, not the least of which was to adjourn to the “ roly poly bank ” — near a noble stream whose bosom was continually broken into ripples by the busy craft which plied from the city to the sea — 1 where with many others, whose laughing features still bespoke childhood’s sunny hours, we rolled our paste eggs, also “ jarped for fun and keeps.” There still remains green on memory’s wall the first sea bathe, the building of sand hills along the beach, the shaping of minia- ture islands and peninsulas, which remained for a moment, were submerged by Father Neptune, and disappeared from view for- ever. Thus have we written of the events of yesterday ; events, the recollections of which have receded to the inmost recesses of the heart, filling it with a light which is mellowing with age. Thus it has been, is, and will be for years to come ; the yester- days of our lives possess bright moments to which we unceasingly turn with happiness. To tl e Spo " 7 D r °P- SNOWDROPS fair, flowret ' s rare Harbingers of Spring, Peeping forth, through snowy crust, Firstborn of mother earth. Thee, thee I love, sweet messenger Bringing unto me, The message old though long foretold “Harvests shall never cease.” After thee comes shrub and tree With flowers myrmidom, Swelling buds and bursting forth In Nature’s harmony. These all I love my heart wells forth Enshrining them my loves, But snowdrop, thou, my first love art None e’er thy place can fill. ' Jeirlooips u literature A S soon as the word heirlooms is mentioned, there rises before the mind visions of treasures possessing historical interest, causing us to view them with awe, and look upon them with a feeling akin to reverence. There are some who have had the pleasure of standing in the armory of an ancient house, whose walls were decked with swords and battle-axes, pennons and flags, the trophies of many a hardwon fight by the ancestor whose armor stood in a remote corner as the grim sentinel of these tokens from a time long past, and almost forgotten. But the interest of the present paper centres not here ; we are done with these and the age of which they speak, and stand in the present, the watchmen upon the tower of Now, ready to guard and defend richer heirlooms, whose influence is intellectual, whose existence — I might say — all but eternal. They are the heirlooms in literature, among which lies buried many a gem waiting for some kind hand to expose its brilliancy to the world. Time is the mansion which holds these treasures, in whose spacious and lofty halls each heirloom has its niche. ’Tis here that we meet the Iliad bearing the impress of Homer’s lofty mind ; the precepts of Plato conceived in an aesthetic world, yet inkling of the divine ; the speeches of Cicero burning with elo- quence, here moving the multitude, there lashing the traitor, again sounding the warning note of danger threatening the state, or perhaps discoursing upon the beauties of friendship. Virgil passes by with sweet and mellow note ; whilst Horace trips along, casting his shafts of wit, and poking fun at the foibles of his day ; dreaded yet loved, more feared than hated. The Inferno reveals unto us Dante’s concept of hence ; with Milton we soar to heaven’s blue vault, or seek the lowest depths of hell ; there to behold the greatest of his creations muttering deep curses against the Lord of Heaven, yet overall exulting in his downfall as he says : “ To reign is worth ambition, though in hell : Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.” Shakespeare enters into the hearts of all men from king to peasant, displaying the wisdom of the wise, the folly of fools ; his irony amazes us ; he makes shudder at his tragedy, and convulses all in laughter with his comedies. The Canterbury Tales wend their way on a pilgrimage to a’ Becket’s shrine ; a goodly company withal led by a “ verray perfight gentil knight” with Yemen, Monk and the Nonne Priestes in his faire company graced by a ‘‘poure Persoun of the town,” who ‘‘Cristes gospel trewely wolde preche,” and folwede it himselve.” Then comes Spenser leading by the arm his Queen of Faerie land. Tennyson follows in the wake of this great company with poems sweet that won the peoples’ heart, for he showed them Arthur who has gone “ To the island-valley of Avilion.” Thus might the list be interminably lengthened, for the stars which form this galaxy are many, each shining with its own peculiar brightness. What have college men, and educated men in general, to do with these ? Everything ! Those who profess to have sipped from Wisdom’s golden font should treasure them because therein are found thoughts uttered by the brightest and noblest minds of our race. Their influence is to elevate, to instruct. They should study them so that they may gain a better conception of Him who illumines the minds of His creatures to do and to dare great things. They live not for themselves alone, but for posterity. To the extent that they neglect or preserve these heirlooms, so will the future praise or blame this generation. If any one de- liberately refused sustenance for the body, he would either be mad 1 1 8 or a fool ; how much greater a fool is he who persistently starves the mind, and yet expects pure and prolific thought to well forth as a spring does from nature’s reservoir. These heirlooms con- stitute the literary wealth of this generation. Their influence is eternal. The relation of valuable literary heirlooms to the pernicious dregs in literature is as gold is to dross. In order to exert a power over his own nature, his companions, and subsequent gene- rations, it is the duty of every educated man to treasure the best that literature affords. It is the duty of every collegian who ex- pects to wield the sceptre of truth, virtue, morality, and culture in the future, to become well informed concerning the precious gems and elevating precepts embedded in literature ; to display to the world these diamond prints of thought ; to raise the standard of literary taste ; to speak and write such things as will draw the minds of the young into the stream of pure literature. We do not mean “goody, goody books,’’ but books that will inculcate thoughts which tend to noble manhood and virtuous womanhood ; books that will act as antidotes to that class of writings which leave the mind satiated with false ideas of life ; books that will show humanity what it is and what it might be ; that will reveal to tnen that if they would become the highest of God’s creatures in time and eternity, they must strive to develop their minds accept- ably unto Him who gave them being, To reach such a high plane requires incessant and laborious toil. He who expects to possess these heirlooms by a fickle and dilatory courtship will be sadly disappointed. The wooing must be constant and ardent, for these literary gems are the golden apples which grow upon the topmost bough of the tree, entailing many an ache and pain before being plucked ; a fruit whose sweet- ness never fails, but grows more mellow with age. Thej r will not force themselves into your presence, nor compel you to accept them ; but they do demand that he who would call them his own must seek them. My IxoVe. i PEAK to me only with thine eyes My love, my darling fair ; Imprint my cheek with one sweet kiss That shall linger there fore’er. Before thy beauty all things pale, Thou art sweet and fair as the rose, Which casts its fragrance o’er hill and dale When the Summer zephyr blows. My heart is thrilled when thou art here, Thy smile entrancetli me ; At home, abroad, on land or sea, My love thou’rt ever near. 120 Life. r SLEPT from eve to early morn A And dreamt that life was Beauty. My wakeful hours but proved to me That life was all of Duty. That life itself was deeds, not words, The noblest, truest and the best Conceived and born in human breast. To raise the fallen, the faintful cheering, To stoop and aid a brother man. Who thinks the noblest, acts the best ; Who strives for jewelled truth ; Who dares to think, to speak and act When Duty doth command. Whose earthly walk seeks one great end, And that great end be God. He ! he alone hath spent life well ! Nor sped his course in vain. 1 2 I A ReVerie T O-NIGHT, my mind being relieved from the strain of work to which it had been subjected for several weeks, I was reclining in my old arm chair, leisurely puffing at a cigar, and idly watching the rings of smoke as they curled upwards to van- ish from view. These rings assumed many fantastic shapes in their meanderings to the outer air. Presently their vanishing seemed to cease, as they gradually assumed a definite shape which was light and air) ' like the smoke which constituted its several parts. The form now became more distinct in its outline, and introduced itself to me as Memory ; so pleasant was her company that I resigned myself to her wishes to do with me as she would. Taking advantage of the opportunity, Memory said : “ Come with me ! for the present thou art under my spell : I promise to show thee nothing which shall prove disagreeable. Away we flew ; I was free. The house of clay was left far behind. Time and space were annihilated. How quickly we sped along ! Mountains and hills, the broad and placid rivers with their innumerable ships carrying the freight of a nation, the babbling brook and sparkling fountain, city, town, and hamlet passed in swift panoramic view before our eyes ; had it not been for my faithful guide I should have fainted from fright as we sped rapidly along. The broad ocean was crossed in a twinkling, and the trans- Atlantic greyhounds seemed to be moving at a snail’s pace compared with our swift flight. We reached our destination, which was the “Old Parish 122 Church” in the city of S . Memory took me by the hand and led me through the city of the dead ; she said : ‘ ‘ These have long since fallen asleep, joining the great procession which hath for its goal that bourne whence no traveller returns.” I looked upon the crumbling tombstones and saw that many of the inscrip- tions were written in Latin, dating from the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Again Memory spoke : “ My friend, the occupants of these narrow houses had mouldered to dust long before thou had’st been sent forth by Him who is the Author of all things. They had departed with their aspirations, and dreams of wealth and power. Their latent fires died with them, fires which might have moulded empires, discovered worlds, or swayed the hearts of men with poetic fervor ; but tarry not here, let us enter the venerable pile which casts so long a shadow in the moonlight.” Venerable it seemed without, but sacred within. Far up in the high tower, suspended between earth and sky, swung the pon- derous bells whose welcome sound had for centuries called the in- habitants to continuous worship ; which had tolled a doleful knell at their departure from their earthly homes ; which had sung a happy song on the nuptial morn, and rung out the Old Year by a merry peal to the New Year. Their glad note had proclaimed ” Peace, goodwill to men ” for many aeons of time. 11 Come, linger not here ! we must hasten,” said my guide, “ and view the tablets sacred to the memory of those who have gone before.” Descending, we found the walls of this massive and venerable pile covered with tablet after tablet sacred to the memory of heroes. I drew near to the wall and read by the moon- beam’s misty light that the tablet directly in front of me had been erected to the memory of one who sleeps in an unknown grave at Sebastopol, of another who fell with his colors at Inkerman ; to my right I discerned that it had been placed there to the memory of a brave youth who fell with Sir John Moore at Corunna ; 3 T et again, removed from the rest I read the story of one who went down with his ship at Trafalgar, thus emphasizing Nelson’s com- 123 mand nailed to the mast, “ England expects every man to do his duty.” Thus and so read each tablet, keeping alive recollections of these brave men in the hearts of the living. ” Hasten,” said Memory, ‘‘we would visit another historic pile ere morning dawns.” Away we sped, swift as light itself, and were at our destination ; but how changed ! No solidity, no care, no cherishing of memory, sacrilege in place of sanctity ; all is ruin ! It is the remains of an abbey slowly succumbing to the demands of ruthless time. The cloisters, which had been trodden by monks breathing their Ave Marias and Pater Nosters until the very air itself seemed impregnated with holy fire, are no more. The garden, which had been their pride and delight, which had blossomed beneath their skilful care, in which they were wont to pass hour after hour in prayer and mediation, has vanished. The briar has usurped the place of the rosebush, the ivy creeps over its dismantled towers, whilst the place of the altar itself is covered with dank weeds and grass. The sacrilegous foot of the stranger is robbing it of its sanctity more and more as time rolls on. I wondered how often its bell called the rude forefathers, of the hamlet which nestled in the valley beneath, to Matins, and could see them in my mind’s eye reverently bowing their heads as the sound of the Angelus floated o’er the vale. I felt sad to think of the Fathers if they could stir from their narrow cells and view the ruins of their once stately home, how — , but here Memory woke me up from my reverie by saying : “ We must hasten home again as the bright bars already streak the dawn.” With that I awoke, and found that my cigar had gone out, and that I had been dreaming. 124 Fatl erlar)(l. LAND of my fathers I oft think of thee, When wandering far from thy shore ; My heart with a note that is plaintively tuned, Oft singeth and sigheth for thee. Thy mountains, thy hills, thy far-reaching plains, Thy meadows so verdant and green ; Thy rivulets, streams where sported the trout, How oft in my day dreams I see ! The mould of thy fields breathe life to the swain, As teaming afield he doth go ; Glad to return at eventide ' s close, With Dobbin and Jay in his wake. 1 2 5 A S IhhIoaV Iron) the Shadow’s S ILENCE reigned throughout the old mane ; not a sound was heard save the ominous creak of a shutter as it idly swung to and fro in the night wind. The fire had burned low in the grate, casting fitful shadows upon the oak panelling, playing hide and seek with each other, seeking refuge behind the pictures upon the wall, or scurrying away to some nook or cranny, to finally lose themselves in the gloom at the farthest end of the room. In yonder corner stood the old eight-day clock, breaking the monotony of silence with its friendly tick, tick, measured and slow. Near me upon the rug lay my faithful hound, the com- panion in many a ramble o’er hill and dale. Suddenly, pricking up his ears, he uttered a low growl as if provoked by some intruder. “Jack, what is the matter,’’ said I. He answered me by another growl somewhat louder than the first. My curiosity now being aroused, I directed my attention to the quarter whence the trouble seemed to arise. At first I was startled, astonished ; for there sat a man, old and venerable in appear- ance ; his locks were as white as the beautiful snow ; there seemed to have settled over his countenance a serenity and peaceful calm which bespoke an honorable early manhood. His dress was such as was worn a hundred years ago ; once more I beheld the knee breeches, black hose, and shoes surmounted by great buckles, of a race long mouldered to dust. Who was he? Whence had he come? Why was he here? were questions which quickly flashed across my mind. Perhaps 1 26 lie was an old friend of my wife’s family come to spend the even- ing ; still she would have told me had it been so. I was lost in the labyrinth of doubt and conjecture, being unable to account for the presence of this personage. Thus I had mused for some time, observing him intently, looking for some sign of recognition, but he neither spoke nor stirred ; now, however, he turned his countenance full upon me, which had been averted ; he spoke : ‘ ‘ Friend, you do well to seem amazed at my presence ; I glided in silently, unobserved. This is my last visit to earth, once before I came ; I shall go hence and come no more. One hundred years ago, the time of my last visit, this mansion was deserted ; it was shunned because people said that it was haunted — it was by rats and mice. Rest, I could not ; beseeching permission to visit the old mansion once more it was granted ; for it was here, yea, in this very room that Liberty was conceived, born and nourished into life ; ’twas here that brave men and true pledged heart and hand to liberty’s cause ; ’twas here that men came, upon whose souls oppression and wrongs innu- merable had left great scars his emotion became so deep at this point, that he paused to brush away a tear, which had stolen out upon his cheek. “ Josiah, Josiah, what is the matter?” There stood my wife, looking down upon me in the dim firelight, with a sweet smile upon her countenance, waiting for a goodnight kiss. 127 Horace. BOOK III. ODE XXVI. J HAVE lived till quite recently approved of the fair, My sword have I drawn for their cause ; The wall which is left to the side of sea Venus, Guards my lyre and arms laid aside. Here, here, place the torches which lit up the camp, The levers and bows, weapons direful in siege, As death and destruction were found in their wake, When gates which opposed were shattered. O goddess divine, who Cyprus now rul’st, With Memphis which lacketh Sithonian snows ; By a touch from thy lash, uplifted on high, Haughty Chloe is cowed to submission. 128 ‘plje Darkey’s D reaI1 I T were much noise. Die grandstand were so crowded dat I were ’fraid dat some han’some little pale-face gal would get too neah dis eollud gemman, and maybe get too familiah w T id dat new suit ob mine. But I soon found out dat such a kind ob thing would nebbah happen, so dat I looked ’round a bit to see what de folks were doing. Die gemman and ladies ’round me talked to beat de old cook. Dey must ha’ been half crazy. In de eonvahsations dey talked ’bout half-backs and quarter-backs and full-backs ! I nebbah knew ob anything but a full-back except when ' Liza Johnson came to de cake-walk wid a low-neck and low-back. I s’pose dey mentdat. Next I heard dem talk ’bout fowl tackle. Dat ’minds me ob de fowl tackle I had down in ’Squire Williams’ chicken-liouse two nights ago. De holes in de seat ob my pants haint been sewed shut yet, so I guess dat were a good hint to get married mighty slick. All ob a sudden dere were a big howl. Everybody stood up and waved eollud flags and yelled like Hodoo Indians. I looked and sure, in de field in front ob de grandstand dere were ’bout a a dozen well, dey had on suits dat looked like Knickerbockers, but — deir faces looked like gals’ faces ! I blushed so dat I 129 thought de black would fall off my face. I axed a gemmau ’side ob me what were going on in de field, — I thought dat maybe I didn’t see well. He were as calm as a spring chicken and said, sez he, “ That is Fern. Sem.’s foot-ball team practicing to meet the DaMonte Seminary team which will be here in about ten minutes. Hooray for Fein. Sem. ” I axed if dey were really gals. Sez he, in supprise, “ Certainly. Both elevens are from institutions of learning for young women. Hooray for Fem. Sem. ” Seeing dat my frien’ were not shocked at de idea ob gal foot-ball playahs, I cooled down and watched fo’ something new. I examined de eleven gladiators mo ' closely and what do you suspect ? I knew every one of those gals ! Dere were Miss Trumbah at de full-back position ; den dere were Miss Dreshah de left half, and Miss Occer de right half ; Miss Shok de quarter ; Miss Roo de center ; Miss Grimli de left end, and Miss Hellah de right end ; Miss MaKevah de left guard, and Miss Wagnah de right guard ; and then Miss Klousah de left tackel and Miss Rien de tight tackle. I tell you sah, dese were all fine gals. Dey were nice as de roses dat bloom in de back yard and dey looked immense in de foot-ball suits. Now I know ' ed who the playahs were and den I kept my peepahs open to see what they do next. Now de udder brigade ob playahs come in de field and dey fumbled wid the pig-skin so fast that you couldn’t see where it went to. Very soon dey had to stop dis monkey business and den dey got togedder in a crowd in the middle ob de field. De Fem. Sems. den come up and got togedder too in a mob on de udder side. All ob a sudden dere were a little motion and den a rush. De whole mob ran after one ob de gals who had de ball. It looked nice, but soon one ob de gals jumped right on de one wid de ball and down she come. All ob de playahs den tried if they could all get on top ob de gal wid de ball ! Dat’s de time my poo’ heart were in my froat. I thought dat de deah Fem. Sem. who had de ball in de bottom ob de pile must be smashed to libber 130 puddin’ from de big lot of wriggling ragamuffins dat laid on top ob her ; she were a special lady friend ob mine, and I alius has strong feeling fo’ my lady friends, dat I mus’ say. At last de muss were cleahed away and, by jingo ! de gal wid de ball came out alive. I called dat mighty lucky, and I hoped dis were de toughest part ob de fight. Dey got in line again like afore, and went through de same muss as afore. Dis time a few ob de playahs were so hurt dat dey were taken from de field, but dey were not ob de gals dat I knowed, so I didn’t care a rat’s tail. Dey went through de same pokey business often, and I were beginning to get used to de excitement. I watched dis till all ob a sudden I saw dat dey were carrying my special lady friend from de field. Perhaps she were hurt very bad ! She didn’t move a hair ! Perhaps she were dead ! ! Oh, glory ! ! ! Dat would ! ! ! (I got awake. And what did I see? Why, my deah little Dinah were sleeping in tny arms. We were driving home from de picnic, Dinah and I, and both ob us had fallen into slumbahs. My dream were so peeuliah dat I got awake afore Dinah. Well, it were a funny dream, and I hope dat it will nebbah, nebbah come true.) Sambo. " iF Cant there’s much, Of truth there’s little In this old dreary world. In Science cant we find ; ' tis said History lacketh not. ’Tis hypocrites this cant diffuse In hollow mock’ry’s show. As critics would they swell and rage ’Fore human throngs below. Themselves write naught, Conceive no thought To gladden or delight, The hearts of those, who Toil and strive, new blossoms For to show. 132 Old, Yet NeW, ’’y ’HEN all the world and love were young, When truth was found ’neath all men’s tongue, When Grecian bards their lays had sung To Aphrodite’s praise. When shepherds led their flocks afield, And tuned their lutes by ’Terpe’s creed, When Zeplrrus moved the wildwood leaves Nigh Grecia’s lakes and streams. A shepherd passing fair and bold, His flock had led ’yond lion’s hold, Up maintains steep, ’cross verdant plain To vales that lay beyond. The day was old whilst night was young, Helios his course of day had run, Sweet Cynthia’s silvery sheen had come To bid her lord goodnight. The shepherd by a babbling stream, Himself sat down and ’gan to dream Of heroes, gods, and man’s sweet queen Whom Zeus had named woman. From out the stream uprose a form, Such beauty, splendor ne’er was born, Nor tresses dark as raven’s wing This side of earth’s wide portals. It came, besieged, possessed his heart, Nor asked leave of the shepherd lad, Called it her own for she was glad, And Love she called her name. At once he rose sent forth a strain, Which woodland, vale, and open plain, Caught up, embraced, flung back again Upon the morning breeze. For woman true, divinest man, In Nature’s law, and Nature’s plan, In love’s disguise his heart possest A day and e’en fore’er. 1 33 A Ring ot j irjokc. JIT HE work of the evening having been completed, my pipe A and I were enjoying a pleasant hour together. I began to muse upon the many things which presented themselves to my mind, in bright or sombre hue, only to be dismissed as uncere- moniously as they had appeared. In my musing I seemed to hear the dying notes of the church bells grow faint upon the morning air; a Sabbath hush pervaded all things. Methought I stood upon the principal street in that old town lost in wonderment at the death-like stillness which prevailed. Suddenly there was a stir, a moving together of the populace. I looked, and noticed that far up the street a body of men, robed in wigs and stoles of dark- est hue, were issuing from a rectangular building. Down the street they came with slow and measured tread; first was the mace-bearer, next a man who seemed the chiefest of them all, for his neck was encircled with a heavy chain of gold, followed by what seemed to be his chief men, who were in turn succeeded by a body of select citizens. They continued their march until they reached the doors of the Old Parish Church; immediately its bells rang forth a glad peal of welcome filling the air with their vibra- tions. Filled with curiosity by this strange scene I made my way into the church and was safely ensconsed in a seat whence I could both hear and see the service to advantage. The bells had ceased ringing ; the great organ broke forth in many a lofty strain, filling the sacred edifice with its voluminous sound awakening the echoes, which chased each other from pillar to to pillar, now meeting in the lofty dome only to disperse and return 134 again. The swelling notes of the “ Te Deum,” mingled with many other songs of praise and prayer, floated upwards to the throne of God as sweet incense. Rook, behold the venerable vicar, clad in his ministerial robes, ascends the pulpit stairs. He opens the Book and reads the words : ‘ ‘ The powers that be are ordained of God.” (Rom. XIII : I.) The moments fled quickly by as he earnestly and eloquently spoke of ordained power, its limits, its rights, its sanctity, its responsibility when legislating for the good and welfare of the commonwealth. He conclusively showed that to mete out justice to all men was the will of God, that bri- bery and maladministration of state affairs in any way was abhor- rent in His sight, and would receive its due reward. The multitude hung upon every word, and drank into their souls deep draughts of the waters of life. But at last the dis- course was ended. The sweet anthem of the choir had given the assembled worshippers a faint taste of what the heavenly music would be, the blessing had been invoked upon them. As they filed out of church the notes of the organ swelled to the tune of ” God Save the Queen !” Again the procession of men wended its way back to the building whence it came. The church was empty, yet I stood there wrapt in wonderment as to what the ceremonies of the day could mean. Why were these men thus robed ? Why had the vicar preached so earnestly on ordained power and its significance? Then a door opened. The venerable man of God came forth ; to him I put the fore- going question. He said, “ This is Mayor’s Day ; the newly elected Mayor, together with the aldermen and town councillors, attend service in a body on the first Sunday after his election.” The ring of smoke now vanished and I put my pipe away. 135 Grossing tl?e Sea eventide the sun sunk low, The wavelets seethe on yonder shore, Struck my heart’s most mournful chord As I put out to sea. The sun sank slowly to his rest, Vanished behind the waves white crest, Unease there dwelt within my breast Riding o’er the sea. Lowering clouds trailed o’er the mast, To larboard, to starboard, fore and aft, This deep ' s leviathan was enwrapped Groping on the sea. Upheaves my breast as the sea’s ground swell, Striking my heart with a doleful knell, Who knows ! who dares ! who scarce can tell ! Of my voyage on the sea. Gloom hovers ’round banishing day, Low sinks the heart forgetting to pray, Hoping yet fearing that darkness may stay Keeping me out at sea. Hither and thither the storm-tossed barque, Plunging and creaking through endless dark, Bearing me onward from home afar Sailing o’er the sea. Parted the clouds, beamed forth a ray, Bespoke my port with coming day, Gone were my fears, and joyful my lay Finished my voyage on sea. 136 137 Ye er edicts. YE First Grande Sire, .

" JN the night when all was dark Not a Soph, around we marked ; Freshmen we, though green may be, Gery, Walter, and Kleppie, We must try some plan to get, Fretz’s room we must upset. In the night when all was dark, When the Sophs, were on their lark, In their rooms, with steps quite faint, Went we Freshmen with our paint ; Chairs and trunks we’ll all besmear, Don ' t green paint make them look queer. Doctor Seip, we know, is out, Scliofer, though, may be about. In the night when all was dark Not a Soph, around we mark ; Down in forty-eight we’ll try To entrap him on the sly. Then the Sophies’ hats we’ll take Though a rumpus it may make, And their coats and canes we’ll steal Though to Seip we know they’ll squeal. 177 Stine and Everett think they’re strong, But we’ll prove that they are wrong. In the night when all was dark And the Sophs, were on their lark, Schofer’s lock we quick did break And shut him into forty-eight. Heldt was nowhere to be seen, So his trunk we painted green. Thus we did it on the sly When the Sophies were not nigh. Scliofer can’t be watching now, There’s no danger anyhow. If he shall by us be seen We will paint his red hair green. All their rooms thus got a share ; Now, wise Sophs., with you we’re square. Come now, to our rooms retire, Listen to the Sophs, inquire, 1 Who did this? Oh ! Who did that ? ” ‘ Where’s my coat ? ” “ Stine, where’s my hat?” But they’ll not return so soon, Not until to-morrow noon, For their banquet, so they said, Closed at eight, then off to bed Bacchus, Sophies, all must go, For their host had ordered so. But the Sophs, were cross, ’twas said, For their host chased them to bed, And their toasts were all cut short So that they had but little sport. Bacchus soon gave up the fight, For he felt so cheap and light. Won’t it be a sight to see Schofer, Fretz, and Miller C. All the Sophs, may soon be seen Cleaning trunks all painted green. All our work is done first-rate, Now a yell for ’98. 178 TVS l s1 A b “ ' PRODUCTS OF OUR INCUBATOR 179 Grirls, (-l oosc yotir Partners! Elmer Snyder. Joe StOpp. Fred. KraMlich. Oren EEidy. Geo.

The object of the institution is a thorough collegiate prepara- tion for professional cribbing and ponying ; a full and fair share of the time is also allotted to the studying of card games, such as “fan-tan,” “poker,” “faro,” and “ three-card monte. ” “More or less than this, it does not believe to pertain to a college education.” Location. The bui ldings of the institution are situated in the south- eastern part of the city, surrounded by 500 acres of ground devoted to the exclusive use of the neighboring property holders. It is five squares from the “station house,” two from the Trexler House, and only three squares from Bickel’s famous resort. It is so situated as to easily comply with the wants of the students. Government. It is that of an absolute monarch) " . The boys do, however, so conduct themselves, that The Right Noble, Grand, Honorable, Most High and Mighty , has but little advice to give, which is kindly administered. Reading Room. The Reading Room Association is formed for the express pur- pose of providing for Profs, and students a suitable room in which they may smoke rank cigars, and have a large time in general ; 182 discuss any topic from a cock fight, prize fight, or horse race to the most serious and interesting national issue of the day, even if it be a foot-ball game. Gymnasium. A large room, six by ten feet, on the ground floor, fitted up with new (?) and approved (?) apparatus. It is conducted by no one. It is open at no time. Once did exist. At one time was larger, but now in a decreasing geometrical progression it ap- proaches infinity. Rules. Throw your paper in the halls ; Throw your water out the window ; Strike your matches on the walls ; When you speak, swear like a Hindoo. Copy all your mathematics ; Horse your Latin and your Greek ; Study up your foot-ball tactics ; Visit Bickel’s thrice a week. Additional copies of this catalogue can be had upon applica- tion to any member of the Ciarla Board. 183 Tl c Trar k Ixipe ’XpwAS just last year, it happened here, A man too oft did go To see his friend, at eve, to spend A few short hours, you know. It happened so, as you may know ; He was a Junior then, So proud his look, he undertook To call on her again. His classmates they, the boys all say, Had quick devised a plan. “ His trunk,” they say, “ We’ll pack this day And send it to the man.” And when it came, “ Who is to blame?” His friend then answered quick — “ It is no use to act the goose, ’Tis but a college trick.” Before a year had passed, ’tis queer, Another tried, they say, This very act, though strange the fact, And got the selfsame pay. Thus we so place this as to face A picture, as you see, That any one who wishes fun, Should somewhat careful be. Of thee, thou dove, so deep in love, May Venus sweetly sing ; But don’t fall out and go and pout, For that’s another thing. To see a miss, they say, is bliss For these two college men, But ’tisn’t right, the eighteenth night, To call on her again. In Junior year, it doth appear, That some are apt to wonder, They do their part with all their heart, But often make a blunder. 185 ki kj Co S5 . eg P uj kj o 00 CO UJ CQ k (0 S -2 o Z rO d nd d d c 3 U t 3 C 3 d " o c 3 u u d bX ’’d d u o u bx) d d 5 S 13 ' d C 3 Ah k . • fl fc o 0 0 A C 3 A c 3 O ”0 S " d Oh V C 3 Co •d .d £ p u V Q. rr x 1 b » c n (V q=! »-rt dJ o o V rd d So bx) C 3 o3 £ 13 u ( } d a rd f - u a £ ' 3 Oh To be V u - D O S ' = (L) 1 C 3 A d L search of new stock.

Built-. 1895. Made of air. Fully insured. Now, this is a very peculiar house, and in it we find much both of a peculiar and curious nature. The only people dwell- ing in it are a most wonderful trio of tradesmen. A cooper , not an ordinary fellow, but a sort of “Jack at all trades,’’ for he is known to have put a straw-roof on a house and then tried to cover it with shindels. He also makes matches (I mean sulphur ones) and barrels in which to put that famous " punch, " en- tirely new brand, 1896. A tailor, or German schncider, and a weaver made up this wonderful trio. “ Wonderful in more than one way They are most oddly constituted. ” Did you ever hear of men eating breintfg) or g recce ? Well, these fellows do, and these are the only supplies kept in the home. Now, of course, these provisions run out at times, and the shops have more than one way through which they make money. And this is how they do it. They have an old curiosity shop and menagerie attached to this house, and it is well worth the price of admission to go through it. What do you suppose they have in it ? Here are a few extracts from their printed catalogue: “Such wonderful things as a hot(ten) stein, always at the same temper- ature, o ° ; an old, broken-up lance ; a wax figure of the greatest anarchist of the age, Xander ; and a picture of the man with a clean-heart , a rein-hart , which is white-washed, and may be found on the right side of the entrance. ” Now, are not these most won- derful things? Now we will go to the menagerie. In the first cage I found the bear family, two old bears and tzvo cubs. Then I saw a little duck, running around loose, with a tag around its neck upon which was the name gensel ; very appropriate. It was very cute. Such a house, filled with so many valuable treasures, must needs have some protection, and so the schneider , during some of his leisure moments, dug a slough around it, and the cooper built a number of bridges over it. Doubtless you think that this “ Jack ” has built an incomplete house ; but no, he has not. I have only told you of a few of the very interesting parts of it. Yet there are others. “Jack.” Palmistry, horoscopes, f fyrepology. FORTUNES AND DESTINIES DEPICTED WITH GREAT REALITY BY OUR “ WIZARD,” PROP. WILLIAM KOPEN HAVER. 192 Hasl7. Funny, isn’t it ?

AB Fief f etrospectiop. J 1 THE first annual, issued by the students of Muhlenberg Col- A lege, made its appearance in the year 1883, when the “ Sou- venir” was published by the secret societies. For nine years after that first attempt, a college annual was a thing unknown to Muh- lenberg. The excellent volume, published by the Class of ’93, is still fresh in the memory of those interested in our college, as are also those issued in subsequent years. But there are, perhaps, not so many who recollect the maiden attempt of the students of Muh- lenberg at presenting an annual to the public ; and it is for this reason that parts of it are reproduced here. The drawing is the work of Mr. J. A. Schadt, ’81, who is now cartoonist for the Philadelphia Times. The line cuts made from these drawings have been preserved by Mr. Ira Wise, ’84, of Allentown, and it is through the kindness of the latter that we are permitted to repro- duce them. 197 f xtapt ( )lass (Juts. 198 1 99 GLEE CLUB OF ' 83. 200 STARVATION CLUB. 201 MISSIONARY SOCIETY.

Many students make their entire year’s expenses working during vacation with our remarkable and beautiful stereoscopic photographs, and graduate with money on interest . Students wishing a profitable and interesting business, which recjuires little capital, should not fail to investigate by sending for full particulars and our beautiful illustrated circular. We take pleasure in notifying our old salesmen that we have just purchased the late George Barker’s life-work, consisting of about 3,000 negatives.
