With a feeling of satisfaction and a sense of pride we present to the College world the fifth volume of the Ciarla. This publication is not improper or needless, because similar works have preceded it. Little would ever be attained in the field of College publications, if such a principle were admitted. For what new thing is there under the sun? Neither shall we under- value the labors of previous editors. We shall be content in adding to their number, with its own possibilities or excitement, and faith- fully present to you, in fresh treatment, college life as it has flitted before us in panoramic vision during the past year. Our thanks are due to the other classes for the kindly manner in which they have assisted us in many ways. To the “ Board of Editors” who have worked with untiring zeal, and also to the artists who have labored incessantly and presented a fulness and felicity in illustrating the important events of the year much de- serving praise is due. We have endeavored throughout to deal kindly and leniently with all our fellow students in order to shelter them from the wrong (?) impressions of fond mothers and loving sweet-hearts. We now place the work into your hands, and ask you to judge it kindly. 10 Colors Cardinal and Gray erg COLLEGE YELL: HOBBLE GOBBLE ! RAZZLE DAZZLE! SIS : BOOM ! BAH ! MUHLENBERG, MUHLENBERG! RAH !

BY SAMUEL A. BRIDGES STOPP. “ The greatest understanding is narrow.”— Grew. We leave College with regret. S THE men of ’96 (a) advance to the last stage (b) in their college course and see before them the land whose heights they may yet ascend, in whose peaceful vales at eventide they may find a pleasant dwell- ing, reminiscences of days gone by, a spirit of thoughtfulness looking steadily and manfully at the issues now pre- sented, and a hope that contemplatively gazes beyond, desiring to lift the veil as imperial Time demands, come o’er our minds and lead us to a deeper realiza- tion of the fact that to us the summons come to enter the great arena wherein men daily wage the battles of life. It seems but yesterday (c) we stood on the threshold of this academic temple and in silent awe endeavored to penetrate the dark (d) recesses (e) and mysterious labyrinths everywhere pre- sented to our eyes. To-day, like Fatima of the olden tale, we would fain retrace our steps and begin again our inspection of THE EDITOR’S NOTES. (a) “ Seldom your opinions err — your eyes are always in the right.” (b) ” We cry that we are come to this great stage of fools.” (c) “ We are but of yesterday, and know nothing.” — Job viii, 9. Cd) “ Well may they say in the words of Locke: ‘‘Till we perceive by our own under- standings, we are as much in the dark, and as void of knowledge as before.” (e) South says: ‘‘Every degree of ignorance is a recess and a degradation from rationality.” 22 the marvelous chambers, the beautiful corridors, and the varied objects of delight in this palace of wonders, (f) But endeavoring as we may to make amends for the past, the mark or the key betrays our frequent folly, (g) and in days to come we may lament wasted opportunities (h) in our college course. The past year has been marked by few notable events in the history of ’96 ; in a mathematically precise statement of facts we cannot write its annals ; but in knowledge (i) acquired, wisdom gained, and experience (j) treasured up for time to come, in laying broad and deep the foundations of the noblest of all structures, that spiritual house wherein dwells what we call man, what words suffice, (k) what account is edequate, to tell the tale ( 1 ) of ’96 ? Character has been building, strength developing, and visions of the soul-life opening up varied avenues of culture and useful activity to these pilgrims at wisdom’s shrine. Soon “ the good old seniors ” of the college song will be “safe out in the wide, wide world.” In pleasant retrospect when the day’s business is done and the evening lamp is lighted, they will review the events of their college course. The days of their freslimanic verdancy ; the icy ' chill mingled with the creature comforts of that memorable sleigh- ride ; (°) the cremation of the arch-enemy, Titus Livy ; the (f) “ Wonder is the effect of novelty upon ignorance.” But, ‘‘We cease to wonder at what we understand.” — -Johnson. (g) “ Folly in fools bears not so strong a note. As foolery in the wise, when wit doth dote.” — Shakespeare. (h) ‘‘ The wise man will make more opportunities than he finds,” says Bacon. Mark well ’97’s Motto. (i) “ Knowledge and wisdom, far from being one, have ofttimes no connection. Knowl- edge dwells in heads replete with thoughts of other men ; Wisdom, in minds attentive to their own.” — Cowper. (j) ‘‘Whence hath the mind all the materials of reason and knowledge? To this I answer in one word, from experience,” says Locke ; and Coleridge observed : ” To most men experience is like the stern lights of a ship, which illumine only the track it has passed.” (k) How well has Milton sung, “To recount almighty works, What words or tongue of seraph can suffice?” ( l ) Its really hard to tell who is at the tail of ’96. ( ) “ There are Dark doubts between the promise and event.” (°) [It was a chilly night— and how kindly did they take us in, while others home their footsteps turned. — E d.] 23 wisdom which distinguished them as Sophomores ; the phe- nomenal (m) success of their Junior annual ; the flood of eloquence (n) in the oratorical contest ; and the balmy days of senioric bliss (r) when lower classmen reverenced them and thoughts of fair maidens might be legitimately entertained, will pass before the mind in vivid panorama and bring back recollections of friends and duties and experiences whose charm can never pass away. The work of ’96, at Muhlenberg, is almost done, (s) We are yet one ; we shall soon be twenty- three. In coming years the men of ’96, in the various vocations of life, will rise (t) up and call her blessed who has been their gentle fostering mother, (v) ’Tis not the end. (x) ' Tis but the beginning of the chief chapter in our life-history. May it ever be to thine high honor, O our beloved Muhlenberg. (m) Indeed ’96 did nothing unworthy of themselves. — [tD.] Lowell says, “ All true, whole men succeed.” in) It was a deluge, and “ Cracked the sky, as ice in rivers when the freshet is at highest.” (n) Silence was eloquence. — E d. (r) Senioric bliss — “ The highest pitch of perfection attainable in this life.” — Addison. You will observe, that for one not enjoying this bliss, it is illeGAL to have a gai.. — Ed - (s) “ Do not you grieve at this,” — nor at their Departure from this happy place.” (t) “ Some rise by sin.” — Shakespeare. Fac ne sic se tollatis. — E d. (v) A wise son will bless his mother; yet Shakespeare says: “Every mother breeds not sons alike.” (x) Solomon has written : “ Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof.” 24 ©fuss of ’97. • • • MOTTO : — Know the Opportunity.

SEIPLE. w HEN we assembled for the first time in our history as a class, no doubt, each of us wondered (a) who in the world these specimens of humanity were. Our curiosity (b) was stimulated into forming acquaintances, and we found that they were right (c) jolly, good fellows. This bond of friendship, formed in our Freshmanic days and cherished throughout our college life, will remain unbroken when we assemble with the saints and those dearly beloved ones who have preceded ns to the “ Heavenly Jerusalem. ” Our class can feel justly proud of her intellectual attain- ments. (?) We were the first class to have a poet (d). Before the Christmas holidays we lost several of our members (e). But though our ranks were thinned, our dauntless spirit was unbroken. The holiday examinations, harbingers of midnight- oil burned and of long hours of studious application (f) came EDITOR’S SENTIMENTS FOR ’98. “ Loquacious, brawling ever in the wrong.” — Dryden. “ The fool is happy that he knows no more.’ — Pope. EXPLANATION BY THE EDITOR: (a) Everybody else wondered ; and they are indeed the most remarkable specimens of Metazoa ever seen in a single collection. Well may we say in Milton’s words, “ All sorts are here that all the earth yields ! Variety without end.” (b) Curiosity has always been a characteristic of them. (c) Webster says, “jolly,” expresses more noise than cheerfulness, and is seldom applied in colloquial usage to respectab ' e company. It is applied to the young and the vulgar. (d) “ A poet is a maker, as the word signifies ; and he who can not make, that is, invent, his name stands for nothing.” Vide: Poetaster. Cf. — Gruber. (e) It was in that disastrous foot-ball game with (their enemy) the Freshmen. It was an unwholesome occasion, on account of the intense friction, caused by the violent concussions, of the falling bodies, with the earth. (f) The holiday examinations were in Latin and Greek. The lads of ’98 were no excep- tion to the privilege. They were given the same long hours in that department as the pre- ceding classes. But had their talents been equal to their application, their progress might have been greater. 37 on apace. ’98 acquitted herself creditably, as she always does. After the holiday recess we all returned refreshed by our fort- night’s rest and imbued with a new desire to study. Shortly, after we had resumed our studies, our time was divided between them and a preparation for the Livy Play. A committee of ’98’s representative men were appointed, among whom was our poet. Livy’s soliloquies (g) were original (h) with him. The burden, however, ot writing the rest of the play was about equally divided among the members of the committee. On the evening of the eighteenth of June, 1895, before a large and cultured audience, our Li vy play (i) was presented. Livy’s fate (j) was strictly in accordance with fin-de-siecle methods of executing criminals — a novelty which the class of ’98 claims the honor of being the first to introduce. After commence- ment, the students not reluctantly packed their trunks, and betook themselves to their respective homes. At the opening of the present, scholastic year, nearly all of them returned, but those who did not, will ever linger fondly in our recollections, although their voices are no longer heard in the class-rooms or in the society halls. Despite its losses, ’98 has had its gains. Messrs. Krause and Sullenberger t have joined our ranks. ’98 has done well in the past, may she do better still in the future and be a shining star in the constellation (k) of Muhlen- berg. May the brilliancy of both never be dimmed. (g) “ Lovers are always allowed the comfort of solil oquy.” — Spectator. (h) There’s nothing original in him but original sin. (i) “Shall I the long, laborious scene review?” — Pope. (j) These semi-philosophers are devoted disciples of the doctrine of Fatalism. Judging themselves to be elevated the stand but on “ The slippery tops of human state, The gilded pinnacles of fate.” — Cowlev No book was ever made that could contain f He is in logic a great critic The stores of knowledge in his little brain. Profoundly skilled in analytic. (k) They may be in the constellation but only a star of the lesser magnitude. 38 Dreka .

HARTLEY. HE fifth of September, 1895, was a red-letter (a) day in the History of Muhlenberg College, for it was that thirty and two courageous young men made their first appearance, as members of this College. They were all im- bued with the same spirits, viz : energy and perseverance. They showed their energy two days later by forming them- selves into the Class of ’99, with their banner gently waving in the breeze, inscribed upon which was their motto, “ Made Virtute ,” “ Proceed in Virtue.” The Freshmen Class, according to the custom of by-gone years, has been bitterly reviled (b) by the Sophomores, who reveled in the thought that they could not be conquered. The class, having formed a foot-ball team, was bound by honor to challenge the Sophomores for a game. This bold move took them quite by surprise, but overcoming their natural EDITOR’S SENTIMENTS F=OR ’99 Too fresh to keep ; ' l oo green to eat ; Throw it away.” “ Now we see through a glass darkly.” “ I am so fresh, the new blades of grass, Turn pale with envy, as I pass.” (a) Explanations and corrections are made by the editor, for the benefit of the readers. The allusions made by the historian must be measured from a Freshmanic point of view. The auspiciousness of this day was not owing to their appearance, for their appearances were against them. And “ there is that which hath no appearance ” as Bacon observed : “ Mortals that would follow me, Love Virtue; she alone is free , She can teach e how to climb ; Higher than the sphei y climb ; Or if Virtue feeble wete, Heaven itself would stoop to her.” (b) ’Twas ever thus. But may they to their consolation remember that scriptural beati- tude. “ Blessed are ye when men shall revile you.” 44 fears, they accepted it, and the day arrived when the eyes of students and faculty were centered upon the outcome of that great struggle. The Sophomores came upon the gridiron (c), in splendor, with gleaming countenances, confident of success. The Fresh- men meekly (d) took their places, with the determined purpose of doing their best. From start to finish the battle waged furiously, and to the surprise and discomfort of ’98, the Fresh- men won the day with flyiug (e) colors. So grievous (f) was this defeat to the Sophomores, that they were ready to take the first opportunity for revenge (g). This opportunity occurred 011 Thanksgiving day, at Alburtis, when four Sophomores substituted for four absent men of the Alburtis team. The team of ’99 was defeated, being overmatched ; but she had manfully met her foe. Besides athletes (h), the class is com- posed of orators, musicians and scholars, all of brilliant (i) intellect. The members of ’99 have worked with so much energy ( j ), that they are considered to be the finest class, that ever entered the classic halls of Muhlenberg (k). They all have a profound respect for the members of the Faculty , who have treated them with all due consideration. They have fairly made themselves known (1), but hopefully look to the time when they shall become worthy (m) of their Alma Mater. (c) Both were pretty thoroughly broiled by the time they came off the gridiron. “Of good and evil much they argued then,” as Milton says. (d) “ No ass so meek, no ass so obstinate, 1 ’ as Pope has said. (e) “ And all the air was green indeed.” ( f) “ The thing was very grievous in their sight.” (g) It was that “ artful revenge of various animals ” of which Darwin speaks. (h) “ Nature has caprices which art cannot imitate.” ( i ) Here again appearance deceives. They possess only the color of the brilliant, which is sea-green. They seldom shine. “But minds are measured by the shadows that they cast.” Hence the historian’s statement is ill-founded. ( j ) “ The great energies are known to us only by their effects.” (k) This is fallacious argument. No middle term. ( l ) They are “ Insanity embodied in raw material,” only animate. (m) “ Worthy men should worthy things embrace.” 45 “O dark, dark, dark, amid the blaze of moon, Irrevocably dark, total eclipse. Milton. 46 a cacien ic 33epartn er t. CLAUDE R.

SUNDAY, IO.30 A. M. 3c accafaureate § ern oi , BY RKV. THEODORE E. SEIP, D.D. A ND it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret. 2. And saw two ships standing by the lake : but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. 3. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon ' s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And lie sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep , and let down your nets for a draught. 5. And Simon, answering, said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing ; nevertheless, at thy word I will let down the net. 6. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes : and their net brake. 7. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both tlie ships, so that they began to sink. 8. When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying, Depart from me ; for I am a sinful man, O Lord. 9. For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of tlie fishes which they had taken : 10. And so was also James and John, the sons of Zebcdee. which were partners with Simon. And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not ; from hence- forth thou shalt catch men. 11. And when they had brought their ships to laud, they forsook all, and followed him. — St. Luke V. MONDAY. 8 P.

John W. Richards, of the Class of ’87, overflows with the same wit, that has ever been characteristic of his distinguished and illustrious father. “The Ideal Student,” by Rev. William Wackernagel, D.D., deserves much praise, and is worthy of the consideration of all, while the poem, by Filger, describes “The Boys” in a lighter vein. It is to be regretted that the music for our class poems did not reach us in time for its publication. — Editor. 92 REV. WILLIAM WACKERN AQEL, D.D. IDidiam (jQac engage l D.D. • • • © N THE opposite page, we have the pleasure of pre- senting to our readers, a faithful counterpart of Dr. William Waekernagel, one of the many of Germany’s noble sons, who is giving to this Western Continent a price- less heritage by teaching her people the German Language and Literature in its purest form. His father, Wilhelm Waekernagel, Pli.D., LL.D., was Professor of the German Language in the University of Basel, from 1833 to 1869. He was a popular writer, a deep thinker, a charming poet, and a distinguished Dhilologian. His uncle was Prof. Philip Wacker- nagel, D.D., Pli.D., whose hymnological studies placed him in the front rank of authorities in this important branch of Church literature. So we may well imagine what an unseen influence is -exerted over the students of Muhlenberg in being instructed by one who was born and bred in such a literary atmosphere. Dr. Waekernagel has been Professor of the German Language and Literature in Muhlenberg College since 1880. Not only does he fill the Chair of German, but also the Chair of History, both Biblical and Universal. His travels and life in the Holy Land and the Orient during his earlier years have given him a store-house of rich and practical knowledge of the habits 94 and customs of those people, hence his words seem more weighty to the student as he hears the expression, “ I have been there,” in the Doctor’s vivid description. He is also engaged in two prominent Societies of the College. The Missionary Society is under his direct super- vision and care, and has been a power for disseminating knowledge of its own particular kind among the students. At each meeting papers selected by the Doctor are read, thus giving the student body, who avail themselves of this oppor- tunity, a comprehensive idea of the happenings both in the home and foreign mission field. He also organized and delivers lectures to the Augsburg Society, which meets every Friday Evening. In this he constantly has fresh opportunities of teaching the Augsburg Confession and speaking on other topics of interest. During the past year he has, besides his laborious duties in the class-room, organized a German Literal ' )’ Society in both the Junior and Senior Classes. These societies meet once a week, and conduct all their business in a parliamentary manner, using the German language exclusively. Debates and Speeches are prominent features of these societies. The societies, through his influence, have made arrangements for awarding prizes to the members of the lower classes, for the best speeches, in a contest to be held this coming Spring. Besides all his regular collegiate work, he occupies a pulpit either in this city or in one of the surrounding districts almost every Sunday, preaching with equal facility in both languages. Very frequently there are students in the audience who always 95 hear him with a sense of satisfaction, and feel that the}’ have been more than instructed by his inspiring words. He is actively engaged in writing for a number of Church Papers, being a regular contributor to the Lutheran Church Messenger and the Helper. He is also editor of the Jugend Freund , a German paper published in this city. He is con- stantly writing interesting and readable Missionary tracts. Notwithstanding his unbounded love for his fatherland, the place of his birth and early boyhood, he yet feels proud of being called an American citizen. From a student’s point of view, one cannot fail to see that he is admired by all his pupils, and that his greatness and simplicity, his humanity and religion are typical of the stern and hardy character of the Germanic race. 96 (Dr e of ©ur §taff 3Tleetii gs. • • • ' ' — ' ' v IAREA STAFF meeting in Fretz’s room, at n 1 o’clock, on Wednesday morning.” Fretz in the reading-room, listening to old jokes at ii.io Wednesday morning, suddenly recalls the notice for a meeting of the staff. He then goes and hunts up the Secretary of the noted body, Billy Fehr. They find Hartzell in the upper hall eating fire, and going through a series of acrobatic feats. In a body this trio proceed to the room and awaken Schenck. Trilby drops in at 11.20. Finds no quorum yet. Fretz details Trilby to hunt up Stine and Sykes. Seiger turns up, and says Sykes is coming, but Stine is asleep. Hartzell is then sent after class cut Miller and Stumpy (Miller, F.) Finds C. C. curling his mustache and F. sends word that we shall not proceed until he had finished the letter to his sweetheart in the city of brotherly love. Editor-in-Chief tries to smile but swears inwai ' dly. Bevy Fehr, in order to break up the monotony of the affair, cracks some o ld Northampton jokes. Nothstein and the Doctor (Kopenhaver) drop in. Time 11.45. Fretz tells Hartzell to get off the trunk and stop his nonsense. Stine, who is always the last, drops in at 10 minutes of 12, and tells the Editor he shall hurry, since he has an engagement up town at 12 o’clock. Staff first passes on the cuts of the artists. Schenck objects to some radical changes in artistic style and taste. Stine 97 lights a cigarrette. Kopie says its injurious to be in a room full of smoke, and refers the gentlemen to Johnnie B. as authority on the subject. Stine says it makes one witty and refers to Dr. R. There is a difference of opinion among the members of the staff. Decided after a lengthy discussion to allow each member to smoke one cigarette during the meeting of the staff, provided he does not bumin them from another fellow. Hartzell dances the Hootchy-Kootchy dance. Sieger chews tobacco and spits out the window. Miller, F., hands in a cut on the Junior Ideal. Bevy Fehr takes on a laughing spell and declares the cut looks exactly like his girl, with the exception of the color of the hair. C. C. Miller votes against adopting the cut and offers his girl’s photo to the artists to copy a Junior Ideal that is in reality a Junior Ideal. Sykes hands in his cut on the “Trilby Club.” Nothstein objects to the motto of the club and says it is copied. The staff concludes that the objection is well taken and decides to drop “ ’Tis a feat, to fit feet.” Miller, F., moves that his name be dropped from the Trilby Club as an officer, since he is a a member of the staff, and for modesty’s sake does not care to appear on too many noted clubs. The staff held this under advisement. Stine moved we roast the faculty. Kopie objected to the motion. Bevy Fehr seconded Stine’s motion in order to bring it under a proper heading. Vote was taken with the follow- ing results: Yeas 4, nays 5, Nothstein and Schenck not vot- ing. Editor-in-Chief decided that those not voting should be counted with the affirmatives, therefore the faculty should be roasted. Editor asked each one to put a slip into the cigar box, with the name of the member whom he wanted torn to pieces. Result : Johnnie 9, Herbst 1, Georgie 1. Editor didn’t vote, but it was implied that he would cast his lot with the 98 majority. Sykes was chosen to draw all cuts for the roast- ing. He refused and the Editor called for volunteers. Ah the artists quickly responded with many ideas for roasting Johnnie. Trilby moved we adjourn. Stine questioned the advisability of having a Ciarla Staff banquet. Miller, C., makes a motion to that effect. Sieger amends it by saying that each member must bring a lady with him. Schenck objects and does not think his girl would do it. Hartzell volunteers to get him one for the occasion. No final action taken. Meeting adjourns. THE JUNIOR IDEAL. 99 3V 3W 0 4 essors i ip. @L BY JOHN W. RICHARDS, ’87. T THE invitation of the Editor, I gladly retire the heavy smooth-bore nibs of life’s battle, and dip the light fantastic pen of halcyon student days. And what strange game we find, when we leave the lumbering ordinance of sober thought at home, and go gunning with the pocket pisto ls of hilarious imagination. The rarest, spright- liest ideas flee as a deer from the noisy smoke of any serious mental struggle. They can be trapped and tamed only in the sunshine of our leisure hours aud gayer humors. Such is the New Professorship, herewith proposed to those stern Boards beneath which an education is hammered into the rising generation. When some kindred spiiflt turns up with the boodle, we will found it in our Alma Mater, and dividing the honors, go down to posterity in hideous wood-cut and equestrian statue {sic semper college graduates) as public benefactors. Twentieth Century humanity will be saved from an awful deluge of the New Woman, already in bloom and bloomers. This has been let loose upon us because of the sins of icono- clastic old bachelors and naughty benedicts, whose household idols have not been kept diligently in paint and repairs. It can be averted, with its threatened serfdom of the sterner sex beneath the cradle and cook-stove, or ostracism in single cussed- ness only by training up the New Man. Until this worser half is developed he does not deserve a better half. There 100 •should not even be any quarter shown him. What the world needs, before the Golden Age can return, and the honey-moon glow like a locomotive’s headlight all along life’s path-way, is this New Professorship. It will, of course, be called the Chair of Husbandry. Have you ever considered how a woman’s education all faces and focuses toward her marriage ? I do not mean by this to insinuate that after that you can’t teach her anything. When I want to make remarks of that kind, I subsidize the boy. that does my swearing for me, to get them off gracefully. It promotes my capillary attraction and longevity. Now a man’s education totally overlooks that momentous possibility, that is the Mecca of Womanhood. She is ever being polished as a pearl of far more than bargain-counter prices, whilst the gold for the setting is left, as Horace says : “ A rude digesting mass.” No wonder that “setting” is so often sat down on. These little darlings practice so diligently the arts and sciences that adorn polite society, especially that one that makes home a blessed memory about three times a day. But he, with all his attainments for the public welfare, is left a savage in the domestic Paradise. The “ chief end of man,” of which the Catechism speaks, has become sadly entangled with the modern “ Descent of Man.” Many a courtship disrobed of its pretty pretence, woidd sum itself up honestly in the familiar Ad.: “Wanted — A Good Cook.” And who teaches him to offer her his hand or heart, or anything but his hungry stomach ? Even our boasted educational institutions, that pretend to fit young men for life, utterly disprize this crying need of the times. What is the use of stuffing them with Greek ? Greece is the next thing to Turkey, and only confirms the habit. And what good -are Mathematics if they don’t make him walk the chalk line IOI of domestic rectitude? Until we mend matters at the fountain- heads of learning, this old story of Beauty and the Beast will flow on in weary monotony. Men and brethren, this we must do, or the Clerk of the Orphans’ Court will stop up shop, and we will get our deserts in place of our dinners. The very newspapers have begun to discuss this theme, and anything that gets into them now-a-davs must be far-gone in moral turpitude. Right in among our daily murders and combine steals, conies a peripatetic poemlet, semi-annually air- ing the fact, that there may be husbands, who are witty and wealthy and all that, “ but the real angelic husband, well, lie’s never yet been born.” Now, unless he is like the poet, he can be made. And unless our courteous “ Radies first ” is a mere humbug, it is our bounden duty, before any other considera- tions, to turn him out in our educational institutions, with his wings all wool, and warranted a yard wide, none genuine without an insurance coupon on his sheepskin, guaranteed kind and gentle, a good floor-walker, and warranted not to balk at anything by day or night. He need not be fast, or adapted to heavy draughts. For this there must be a new Collegiate department with all the latest scientific apparatus for manual training in putting up stovepipe noiselessly, and the thousand and one amenities that our flesh is heir to. The library will not be an important feature, as the Husbandry of the past has been notoriously defective. It might tempt our sprouting hubbies to a relapse into the barbarism of the Dark Ages. The lecture system would, however, be strikingly appropriate here. The trouble has been that this all-important branch of mascu- line education was left to the ladies’ man of the Sophomore Class, who knew all about it, of course. His mushy effusions have been the scant pabulum of whole generations of spavined, 102 knock-kneed, broken-winded husbands, or the Chair of Hus- bandry is allowed to exist among us, solely as a capacious rocking-chair, or “ the bicycle built for two,” of more recent invention. Now Husbandry is a cere-ous subject, and should not thus be relegated to the realms of Circe. As with the frequent application of the jug in harvesting, our beloved husband-man is not edified, but bewilderingly intoxicated as he drinks at this fount. He floats in the cloud-land of romance, far above such prosy matters, as the price of winter butter and eggs and spring-bonnets. With Cupid’s blind staggers upon him, he can have no clear conception of what it means to have “ A little farm well tilled, A little wife well willed.” And as long as things are allowed to go on thus, Marriage will always be the graveyard of Hove, and our wives will be justified in insinuating that we men are the grave-diggers, pro- viding its untimely sepulture. One might as well start out for the North Pole, with a grip full of paper collars and handker- chiefs, as launch out on this voyage, untaught and untrained in all our boasted schools. If the dead languages are worth our study, much more the lively human nature, which, when the Knot is tied, hangs about our ueck as the mascot of all our happiness, or the mill- stone of our chiefest misery. If we are to be fitted for a pro- fession, which is but the overcoat of our after-life, how much more for the office that rubs against our very self. If the proper study of mankind is man, why not devote a good share of it to his “ flying rib,” with her bewildering idiosyncracies, and infinite capacity to make us alternately wretched and blessed ? “ Know Thyself,” was the legend on the old heathen temple. What’s the matter with this boasted civilization of 103 ours enabling a young man to make head or tail of his “ alter ego.” It’s a risky business when he must first marry to learn to know her. His only advantage is that she never gets done finding him out. He even surprises her when she is dead and gone, by relapsing into the youthful follies he often swore she had cured him of. But you will ask who is to be the incumbent of such a chair, and direct that course of sprouts, that shall reduce the lottery of marriage to a simple science, and make plain sailing of its troubled seas? Thy servant is not a walking encyclo- paedia, but like Mr. Keely, he is exhausted by the very dis- covery of this new educational farce. Future generations will have to apply it with all its legitimate and beneficent capabili- ties. No doubt this Father of Husbandry will be selected for his manifold and various experiences. No old bachelors need apply. The practical, as we have hinted, will be the big end of this department. The reason for this is plain. Any one who has caught a glimpse of good society will remember that it is uot etiquette to call wildly for the hatchet and crowbar in carving a turkey. It is such things that must be mastered before we rush in where angels will never tread. Peace and joy in the house- hold demands a Jack of all trades at the helm. Spigots leak and pipes freeze, doors swell and window-panes break, and the tutelary deity of the establishment must be able to leap into the chasm, no matter how deep and wide. It is his business to see that all is quiet along the domestic Potomac, even at the cost of valuable time, infinite patience, and sundry grafts of quivering human flesh, left to work the scenes of his labors. No woman with the proper conception of the dignity and im- portance of her household affairs can be expected to wait for plumber, glazier, or odd-job carpenter. Woe unto him who, 104 unequal to the emergency, even proposes such dastardly pro- crastination. What She wants, and what It wants, they both want right off, and things have got to come up by the roots or there’ll be trouble. The old saying that “ Man was made to mourn,” is largely due to his shameless incapacity in the past to mend. We condemn, therefore, all who are of any other persua- sion. This “Babes in the Wood ” business must stop. No- where is a “civil service” examination so necessary as in the case of a candidate for this highest office, in the gift of some People. Ford of Creation, as he is, he should not be natural- ized as a citizen of this blessed United States, until he has qualified himself by a four years course in the tender arms o f the Chair of Husbandry, and graduated “ cum laude .” This practical training will require a special building in which the provoking anatomy of the modern tenement-house may be patiently dissected and reassembled. Ample sugges- tions about the apparatus will be received from the long-suffer- ing wives of former graduates. A post-graduate course might be required, and an “ex post facto ' " law compel the return of earlier but not happier A.B’s. How far this would go toward curtailing the solemn phrase. “ For better or worse !” How fair it would be in view of woman’s most laudable and unre- mitted zeal to do her part in the making of “ Home, Sweet Home.” Mark how she knitteth the pink and blue crocheted slippers, that fade away in a night. And hast thou never heard of the cob-web tidy, and the crazy quilt of a thousand pieces? Think what these fond, home-loving creatures de- serve, ye soulless corporations of learning. Prove ye just once this New Professorship and mark what a rush there will be for First Honor Man in this department, the boss carpet stretcher, the stove-pipe saint, and enchanter of obstreperous infancy. 105 ©ur ©f ass ©of ors.

The smile of virtuous maiden, A future promis-laden, What aught could we wish for ? O Class of Ninety-seven, Most glorious under heaven, I love thee evermore ! My voice and heart upraising And thee with rapture praising Always my joy shall be ; Thy fame to further ever, Thy name to tarnish never, This will I promise thee. Some day will come the parting When on life’s journey starting A sad farewell we’ll say ; Though time tie us to others, We always will be brothers, Be bright or dark the day. Then clasp your hands with fervor, In bonds that naught can sever, A golden band unseen ! See, everywhere are streaming Our colors brightly gleaming, The seal-brown and nile-green ! 106 mu c)r. f T WAS WINTER, and I point you not to a large city r r}j where there are no fir trees weighted with the crystal " snow, and among their branches flitting snow-birds holding high carnival in the noon-day sun. I do not call your attention to some lonely hut in a barren desert, nor to the much dreaded tenement-house in one of our rural or cosmo- politan cities, but I invite you to look upon a neat, cozy little cottage situated on one of the leading thoroughfares in a boom- ing town, but a short time ago a few lmts, now an incorporated borough, with fair prospects of soon becoming a city. It is a noted seaside l ' esort. Above it stand little hills like wary sentinels to protect it, to the East and West there are wide expanses of hazy flats, rich salt marshes and rolling sand hills. Two placid little sti ' eams there empty their quiet waters into the eternal thunders of the Atlantic wave. Pleasantly the quiet little town stands there beneath its soft and almost Italian sky, fanned night and day by the calm breezes of the Gtdf Stream which keep off the cold currents sweeping upon it from Arctic climes. But Jennie Allen had no eyes for the silvery spray playing in the noon-day sun, for the white sails so beautifully spread over the ocean blue ; or for the golden curls of the stray winter girl, of late quite frequently found at such places, briskly walking along the beach, and Jack looking at her sideways felt rather uncomfortable. Although his sister was as fair as those pictured in fairy tales themselves. It was the careless 107 yet marked poise of her head, the averted yet anxious eyes, the cheeks flushed with color, and silent thoughts intermingled with shame, yet harboring a feeling of sorrow that Jack too clearly and plainly saw, and which caused his discomfiture. Although Jack had started to lead a wayward life so easy to begin in a seaside resort, yet more enjoyable at times did he find his sister Jennie, than the pool-man, the club-house or the attractions of the beer garden. But there were other times when he stood a trifle in fear of her — fear of her clean-cut ways and penetrating vision. A few moments ago Jeunie had given Jack a look that went straight through him and his heart in cousequenee, was beating quickly even yet. Jennie was quiet, but Jack perceived it was a silence that must be broken. With compressed lips and contracted brow he fortified himself for what was coming. “Jack, I ofttimes wonder if you have one grain of manli- ness about you, or one spark ot fraternal love for your own sister.” “ Now Jennie that’s too bad !” “I cannot help it Jack, I really cannot. Don’t I time and again pretend not to know where you are of an evening when I of a certainty know you are enticed by your seemingly reckless companions, and enjoy scenes of revelry and disgust, just to keep that anxious look from father’s eyes when he asks: ‘Where’s Jack to-night Jennie?’ That look was never in his eyes before you went away. His whole countenance is now changed. You are leading a reckless life, Jack, and you feel and know it as well as I. And there, s mother” — Jennie’s eyes were filled with tears for a time, and she struggled to gain the mastery over her emotions, which were the blossoming of a noble soul. Then all at once as if supported by all the powers of nature, she said : “Jack, do you want to bring your mother to an early 108 grave?” Jack dropped back into Ins seat and his lips twitched nervously. Jennie had not yet finished. There was a secret bitterness in every word, and Jack winced. Jennie continued with the expression his mother used the night before when he had not come in until morning. “ Dear as life is to me, I would yield it cheerfully, cheerfully, if only I would feel that Jack was able to battle against the temptations that surround him.” Jack was moved. The skill of his sister had conquered. Jack yielded, but in order to hide his shame said reluctantly : “Jennie, it is useless for you to speak, for really you don’t know what temptations for a boy are, in a place like this.” But Jennie was equal to the occasion. Her face flamed, her brow contracted, and with a sneer upon her lips she said : “ I know what temptation for a girl is in a place like this.” Then his features relaxing and assuming a calmer aspect, she answered him in a lower tone that made it seem that every word was spoken at much cost. “ If you think a girl can get through her teens, and go in and out of life as we have it here in our city, and not be tempted and deceived, you are sadly mistaken. If, as you say, there is much temptation for a young man, how much the greater do you think is the tempta- tion for a girl ? There is much to tempt us, and if you cannot see it Jack, it is because you have left your own sister to the deep plots of scheming and unprincipled men, indifferent of what became of her.” Jack’s attitude changed, with a deep inward love for his sister ; he went to her side and gently holding her hand in his, said : “Jennie, have you ever needed a brother’s watchful- ness and care?” “No,” said the girl, lifting her face proudly, “because, feel assured Jack, that there are girls who can be their own pro- tectors at all times.” “But I have felt” — she stopped, and with a broken, tremulous voice added, — “ the lack of that brotherly companionship that is an impregnable barrier be- tween a girl and any evil perchance she may meet.” Jack was deeply moved as he stood looking down upon his innocent sister’s flushed face. In that moment he saw himself as he had never done before, saw how he had gone downward on his wicked career, and left his sister alone to struggle against the allurements and temptations of the world, regard- less of what mi ght happen to her. Jack too well knew what life in a great city was, and the sort of people to be found even among the best society- What experiences had his sister known ? What difficulties had she encountered ? He looked at her searchingly. She met his gaze fearlessly, but back of the fearless look was a certain something that made her brother confident she knew whereof she spoke. “Jennie, I wish you had said this to me before.” For an answer the girl throwing her arms around her brother’s neck and bursting into tears said : “ Oh Jack, we could be a material help to one another, if you only would ! But how shall a frail, unprotected girl fight the stern battles alone? If it were not for mother and father, for myself and for God, it would be too much for me. And you might be so much to your parents if you only would. You have sadly disappointed father by not entering the Junior Class in college after having taken such an extensive preparation. Why do you not go to college instead of idly fooling away your time here? You might be an honor to your friends ; a joy to father and mother.” “ And I will be, Jennie, God helping me, I promise that from this time on I will lead a different life. You shall never feel again that you have a reckless brother. By the help of Him whom I have first learned to know at my mother’s knees, x io and who careth for all, I will do better.” Jack was only answered by a look which could not be mistaken ; it was the communication of two souls, and there was no deception in the language. Jennie’s skill had c onquered. This interesting and all important conversation was the measuring of the strength of two souls, and the weaker was triumphantly over- come by the stronger. Suffice it to say that Jack entered the Junior Class in college that fall and graduated with honor, after which he entered a medical college of high standing, and not only graduated with the highest honor at the head of his class, but received a set of silver surgical instruments for passing the best examination in obstetrics , and a gold medal for the best examination in clinical surgery. How well Ex-Judge Allen, his wife and daughter Jennie felt on the night of their son’s graduation, when they looked on the stage beholding Jack’s manly form, and realized that he stood at the head of a class of nearly four hundred. Judge Allen’s heart was filled with joy, and at no time was a Proverb of the Wise Solomon truer than now, when he said : “ A wise son maketh a glad father.” But when the annual address was delivered by one of the leading surgeons in the United States, Jack’s family were especially attentive and well pleased as the speaker several times referred to the brilliant leader and recognized head of the class in the course of his excellent address. Jack was especially attentive as the speaker said : “You have received the degree of M.D. conferred on you by the authority of this, the greatest of all Commonwealths — Pennsylvania. Not for a day, or a month, or a year, but for life. Your diploma is only the pass- word to the great field of action, where only ability, energy and true merit can win. You are then passed through fire, to hi come out either dross or pure gold, to realize how real and earnest this play of life is. It is a survival of the fittest and only awaits to be seen by those who survive to meet here again, who of us will bring to his “ Alma Mater ” the golden grain, and who the chaff. “ There are many rocks in the narrow channel through which we must pass. You must learn to discern and avoid them or they will wreck your frail craft and invite the cruel waves of disappointment to close over you forever. Always lend your aid and counsel in the upholding of law, morality and religion, and enter the sick chamber with a high purpose, clean hands and a pure heart. “ Here to-night you have consecrated yourselves to the ser- vice of suffering humanity, and have enlisted in an army that will not muster you out until death. You meet face to face the man on whose brow you see the awful seal of death, and yet he knows it not. You stand by the bedside of the widow’s only child, and see too clearly in its wan and hollow cheeks that its short life is nearly ended, while the weary mother prays you for its precious life. “ In the palaces of the wealthy you feel the chill breath from the passing wings of the angel of death, and in the squalid quarters of the poor where grim want seems almost to death a blessing, you see the dreaded shaft that never strikes its victim but once. “ Where pestilence walks at mid-day your duty calls you, and where the heroes of many battles dare not enter, you face with cheerful courage the dreaded dangers of disease. “ But Alas ! some day in the midst of your duty and noble acts of self-sacrifice your name too will be called, and all that is mortal will pass from the view of men to moulder ’neath the clods of the valley, perhaps to be forgotten. Ah ! how 1 12 soon forgotten ; but in the silence of sorrowful hours may the desolate mourners say of you as of the physician of old : “ He went about doing good.” “ Noble as is your calling and Godlike your mission, you will often go unrewarded. You should strive to do your duty without murmuring. Though you fail, struggle onward. The old heroes of many battles are fast passing away, and you are called to take their places. Be noble men and bear the bur- dens of life nobly. Enter upon its duties with reverent fear adding dignity and glory to the pages of history deserving the blessing of God, the unfailing gratitude of suffering humanity, and a crown of glory in eternity ; for all that pleases is but for a moment ; and all that pains is but for a moment, that only is important which is eternal.” Several years have passed since Jack’s graduation, and it is the night before Thanksgiving. Jennie has now developed from the frail girl to the lovliest form of womanhood. On her face was a halo, richer than a rainbow ; a smile lit up her features that would illumine the darkest of cares ; as you look upon her a depth of feeling stirs your soul as you perceive in her those rich qualities that gain upon your feelings, day by day, like a sunny morning in spring-time gains upon the frosts of night, qualities that have stirred many a soul to its depth — gentleness, beauty, refinement, generosity and intelligence. Jennie is engaged in a most earnest conversation with her mother, laying future plans, for she is to be married to-morrow to Jack’s former college chum, who is now an ordained minister of the Gospel. The conversation is turned to Jack, when Mr. Allen enters. He at once speaks of Jack’s former life and says : “Jack is what he is through Jennie’s influence.” What a life they led during those years. It was as though a threatening July thunder storm had broken suddenly and flooded the whole family with joy, love and happiness. And how young Jack’s mother grew ! Where was the look in her father’s eyes of which Jennie had once spoken? “ To think James, I was almost regretting we had named Jack after you, for fear of what might be coming !” said Mrs. Allen. But now regret and sorrow had turned into joy through the influence of Jennie’s life and character, and who will deny that such a life shall have an eternal and spiritual fruition. Opposite the very parlors in which these words were spoken, a young physician had just received a call to the chair of •clinical surgery in one of the growing medical colleges of the West. In front of his palatial office, lighted by a powerful ful incandescent lamp, was swung to the breeze a shingle bearing this inscription, Jack Allen, Jr., M.D. 114 Guv Zero’s 3U e. ISTEN, my children, and you shall hear Not of the mid-night ride of Paul Revere. Of this hero of mine, ne’er a line has been penned, But perhaps ’tis because of his fearful end. On the sixteenth of March, in ninety-five, Many there be that are yet alive, Who remember how well our hero did strive. ’Twas nearly eight by the City clock, When he mounted his steed of the finest stock. The time was spring, sultry the day With Chapel-time half an hour away, So he tightened his reins, gave the word to his horse And started to ride through his difficult course. Two lines he’d finished when to his dismay, No more could he find for the lesson that day. Then he ransacked his trunk of dirty shirts, Passed his studious chum with stealthy tread, To the bed-bug chamber overhead, And startled the creatures from their perch, On coat-collars that ’round him made Masses and moving shapes of shade. No more in his coat to his utter dismay, Save the torn pages he’d used the other day. Meanwhile impatient to mount and ride, Booted and spurred with heavy stride He soon found relief in the room of the King, Everett, who always has the kicking thing. Again he tightened the reins, gave word to his horse And started to ride through his difficult course. And thoughts of the class-room, Georgie and a Zip, Floated over his mind as he piled on the whip. The lesson was Eatin, hard and long ; Most skillfnl the rider, the horse fleet and strong, And, nostrils w T ide open, and tail straight out, At half past eight the time was all gone, And he riding so fast that he hardly could keep on ; For long was the lesson and short the time, And some of the hills very hard to climb. At nine by the chapel clock to class-room Reed dashed, Everett’s horse covered with foam and with mud besplashed, He saw the class-room windows, blank and bare, Gazing at him with a spectral glare, As if already they even stood aghast At the tricky work that would soon be past, That was all ! And yet through the fear and fright, The fate of a student was riding all right. For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, Through all his history, to the last, In the hour of darkness and peril and need, Everett will waken and listen to hear What now is the strangest part of my story That robbed our hero of much of his glory ; For the horse that thus far had o’ercome all obstruction, Threw off the brave rider when he came to construction. Il6 a essorys. • • • OW beautiful the autumn time, the quiet of its restful days ! ’Tis the season of color, of brilliant gorgeous hues. We call them “ melancholy days, the saddest of the year,” — perhaps because all misfortune and destruction of beauty bring a feeling of sadness. Emerson remarks in his “Essay on Nature” that, “were the stars to shine but once in a thousand years, men would preserve for many generations the remembrance of the city of God which had been shown.” He might have said the same things of the dying flowers of autumn and the tinted leaves which are “the stars that on earth’s firmament do shine.” Did no fall leaf or flower brighten the world save once in a thousand years, the memory of that one year would be cherished from generation to genera- tion down through the ages. With what delight, what admiration, what awe, would man regard each flower in meadow, moor, or glade, as for the first time it stood before him in its dying color, like Ruth amid the golden corn, to charm with its beaut y his soul, aweary with the dull things of life ! From the stunted pine, bending beneath its burden of almost perennial snows under the arctic circle, to the graceful palmetto, flourishing beneath an almost vertical sun; from the slender poppy which braves the boreal climate of bleak coasts and dreary barrens, trodden only by the Esquimaux, to the delicate Southern orchid, daintily clinging to oak or cypress, the continent of North America affords such a variety of plants, that not even the most skilled botanist can hope to know them all. And all these teach a lesson which can be learned with very little observation on our part. It is in some respects surprising, but none the less true, that while man is everywhere surrounded by the glories of autumn, he is never- theless in most instances, like the idols mentioned in Scripture, which have eyes yet see not. In autumn we are brought to realize the fact that growth gives pleasure; decay, pain. Life causes joy ; death, sorrow. Thus the fading glory, just as much as death itself, carries with it something of melancholy and regret. Sympathy is an innate quality of man, and finds expression in ways hardly to be recognized. Autumns vary like life. The story is written on every wind-tossed leaf. Who shall tell from what summer land the soul has taken its flight hither? “ Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting, The soul that rises with us, our life’s star, Has elsewhere had its setting, And cometh from afar.” First the green foliage, then the bright color, followed by the various browns, after which it falls, and scattered over the ground, enriches it, furnishing strength for new leaves, new life. Does this not teach us that everything is gained at another’s expense? There is a continuous round of sacrifice. The mother gives her strength for the child. The liberty of one generation is purchased by the slaughter of the preceding. We are permitted to live only because our fathers died. Innumerable lessons may be learned from the autumnal season. In many respects it teaches us that life is essentially the same, both in the vegetable and animal kingdom. It shows us that there are no independent members of creation, that all things touch upon one another. It teaches us that the ocean of life is inexhaustible. On the mountain top, in the abysses of the Atlantic, in the deepest crevice on the surface of the earth ; in truth, everywhere, autumn has most useful and valuable lessons. 1 18 We know that only what has survived the drought and scorching heat of summer comes to autumn. So it is with our souls, purified as by fire, in the furnaces of affliction and adversity, the greatest and purest only escape danger un- harmed, yea, even more, this very fire brings out the soul’s full value. The trees are clothed in modest green throughout the year except this season. Gay attire has its proper place, but do we not learn from nature’s teaching that quiet raiment is usually in accord with it. He that givetli most possessetli most. The seed is sown and a thousand fold is reaped. And how frequently is a kind word repaid by blessings innumer- able. Then comes the Indian summer, the sunset of the season, when the warm mild winds blow and the wierd nights come and the moonlight in a strange, frightened way sheds its spectral light over all. This truly is a dreamy time, fitly named from the dusky Indian warriors, whose legends so beautifully harmonize with the spirit of the season. Like strains of minor music the autumn days seem to me. The leaf is now sear and yellow. It is the evening of life. Frost has cast its blight upon the beauty. The storms have come and gone and brightness is here no longer. It is cold, and pleasure is obtained from the stores gathered when the sun shone. It is well to grow old, gracefully, happily. Unfortunate are those whose store-houses and granaries are empty when old age is upon them. The life of the decayed leaf is not lost, but is reproduced with renewed beauty. Is not the soul greater than the leaf? Can you think that it will die? No, life dis- appears, but to rise again. Shall our human life, the greatest of all, pass into nothingness? Reason satisfies desire with the answer, No. Evening is past ; night comes breathing its cold, damp, frosty breath upon us. Further on the joyous spring- time and the soul-stirring breath of the eternal morning. 3V • • YX| I E SING not deeds of martial men yj or triumphs won with sword or pen, Far nobler deeds our thoughts inspire And wake to life the social fire. We sing of deeds in social ranks, Of social dudes and walking cranks, Of “ knights ” who always saddled are And make a “ horse ” their “ guiding star.” We also sing of men of lore, Who claim descent from Grecian shore, Of men of science, men of worth Whose fame shall spread o’er all the earth. These men have come from far and wide, From cloud-capped mount and roaring tide, From Egypt, Bethlehem, Gratz and Palm, From Nazareth, Brooklyn, and the farm. The deeds they do are seldom sung By bards inspired, in any tongue, They are too lofty for mere rhyme But must be sung in strains sublime. One works with might to make his mark, Another goes his girl to spark, That loves to learn his lessons well, This learns to love a city belle. One is a wit, or thinks in puns His daily course of duty runs, Another thinks a solemn face Supplies the best of manly grace. One puts on fashion all his care, He blacks his shoes and pastes his hair, To him his clothes are all in all, And chiefly so to make a call. 120 One aims at sport, and one at fame, Another works without an aim, But every one those days enjoys Which he can spend among the boys. Though some are weak, at least not strong, To fathom truths or right or wrong, Yet they their duty well fulfill In “grinding” at the “social mill.” One may pretend what others know, Or but attempt to make a show, The shadow of his mind’s a span, And yet he fills his Maker ' s plan. Another deep and deeper sinks His anchor into truth, and drinks The nectar from the spring of lore That wells up at each sage ' s door. Some work, some don’t, some “ walk,” some “ ride,” Some study hard, some fain would guide, Some act like clowns, some others chide, While others go to hunt a bride. But all combine to form a band Of noble youths to lift this land Upon a higher plane of life And bid the world to cease from strife. Then hail the burden of our song, It is to help your joy along To learn this band of college boys Will lift the world to higher joys. Old Muhlenberg, (blest be the name), Shall ever upward rise in fame ; Its learned Doctors, teachers kind Shall stand as centres of the mind. May now our numbers take their flight And on your memories steps alight ; Their mission, may it be for good, And bring to you rich mental food. — Buyer Filger. I 2 I 511s, $Laf §tu W. BY DR. WM.

P TYMOLOGY, that delightful study, tells me that the fijfN word “ideal” is derived from the language of a people which worshipped the intellect, whilst the word “real” belongs to the vocabulary of that people which prized muscu- lar power above everything else. The true sense of the word “ man,” i. e. “ a thinker,” is repeated by the former in “ a being looking upwards,” whilst the other’s word for man is related to its word foi earth. As a matter of fact, our generation is much more given to realism than to idealism ; hence the per- nicious “ scientific ” (?) dictum, which is even found in our children’s copy-books, “ man is an animal.” — “ Life is real, life is earnest,” most assuredly so, but the poet did not speak of animal life ; it was the intellectual, spiritual life he was thinking of. The aim and purpose of our institution is to make a man of the student in the true, ideal sense of the word. We take him as he is and try our best to cut and carve out of the block of marble or the log of well-grained wood an image (this word again is related to “ thought,”) of our ideal, a Christian gentle- man. The original of this ideal, who is he? My ideal student enters College with the firm purpose of being a studiosus , i. e. one who takes pains to do his mind- 122 work well. He feels that he has solemn obligations towards his Creator Who has given him his talents, towards his parents who give him his support often by stinting themselves, towards his friends who watch his progress, and towards himself. He has become a member of the civitas academica , the most honor- able and honored corporation in the world, the realm of mind. He is a freshman, bnt does not “ make himself fresh he wants to become a man , and therefore casts off what is not becoming to a man. When a Sophomore, he takes care to lay stress on the first component of the name. As a Junior, he wants to be the higher degree of a mere juvenis. As a Senior, he covets the wisdom and dignity of a senex withont senility. As a graduate, his aim is to rise still higher ; it is always “ Excelsior !” with him, until he has reached the goal of his right ambition, in the highest life. My ideal student daily remembeis the proverb, “ Morgeu- stund hat Gold im Mund,” and therefore begins his round of duties and privileges with opening the golden treasury of the Word of Life. He goes to worship in the chapel in a reverent frame of mind, listens attentively, sings heartily, prays fervently and shows by his whole demeanor that he knows where he is. He enters the class-room quietly and takes his seat fully deter- mined not to lose a single minute of the recitation-hour. He despises the foolish boy who is wasting his precious time and his father’s hard-earned money by shirking his duties, annoying his teachers and disturbing his class-mates. He shows due respect to his professors and does not hold the insane notion, that the teacher is the pupil’s natural enemy. Neither does he submit to the spurious “ tradition,” that the wrong- doers must have free play and dare not be suppressed by their 123 class-mates. Knowing that his professors are his trne friends, lie is not mortally afraid of being called “a snck,” but stands up for the right even at the risk of becoming “ unpopular with the boys.” He will not be unpopular with the men. In pre- paring his lessons, he is too proud and too honest to cross the shaky puns asinorum or to enlist in the freebooters’ troop ; he wants to use his own feet on terra firma. He does not rob Peter in order to pay Paul ; whether it is a “ major ” or a “ minor” study, he is anxious to do his best in every branch, be it linguistic or scientific, ancient or modern. My ideal student knows what the word College means. Here he is to gather knowledge by reading (and thinking) all the time. The first book he reads is his Bible, then come his text-books and works of reference. His spare moments are given to the perusal of belles-lettres , where he prefers poetry (ideal ideas) to fiction, which is sometimes nastily realistic. The time allotted to study and recitation is only too short for him. He does not sigh for the next vacation when the last one has just ended, and does not shout for joy when a professor is not able to meet his class at the appointed hour. My ideal student observes the maxim, “ Mens sana in cor- pore sano .” He is neat in his appearance, likes water and soap, keeps his room in good order, does not take the corridor for the ash-bin, etc., and does not use the corners of the class-room for a spittoon or waste-basket. He eats his meals according to hygienic rules. He takes regular exercise in the open air and joins in the games on the campus, but does not crave for the dubious honor of being called an athlete. He likes to sing 124 with the College Glee Club, but does not tune his vocal chords in the class-rooms or the halls. ' Jf. My ideal student is glad for the coming of the Day of Rest. He therefore gets up early on the best of days ; he wants to have a “ full day ” of its pleasures. Going to Church and Sunday-school and a walk in the open air with his chum will do him a “ world of good,” and he knows it. He pities those boys who do not know what to do with their Sundays ; they generally show this lack of knowledge all the days of the week. My ideal student has neither time nor money for the play- house or the man behind the bar. He is happily ignorant of the rules of poker and does not indulge in low slang or ambigu- ous talk. He is aware of the great advantage of cultivating acquaintances with ladies, but he has his wits about him and calls only on such whose intercourse with him is profitable to his mind and manners. Summa summarum , my ideal student is showing plainly, that he is worth the trouble taken by his sincere friends, the professors, to make a man of him. In this wise they are “laborers together with God,” the Creator of man in His own image. To have helped to make a man, whose highest type is a Christian ' gentleman, is a great reward in itself, a lasting comfort and a sweet joy. My ideal student does not live in Utopia only. I have met him in his development within the walls of Muhlenberg and 125 am meeting him to-day. I earnestly hope this rare specimen will never become extinct, in spite of the realistic tendency of onr generation which is so easily satisfied by its five senses. These, however, pass away with everything else that belongs to the lower life. The sixth sense, the ideal , which is called Faith, by religion, is the only real one. My ideal student has gotten that sixth sense. Therefore, is he not the only real student ? — Sapienti sat. 126 3 %. ©f ass o f 3 ir)et =§eVeT Tune — Upidee.

It is entitled, “ The Fate of Ninety-Eight.” Its meter is Gruberian. Its style is vivid. Its diction is didactic. CLASS there was called Sophomore, In folly great but not in lore, Who thought, to make of Freshmen tools, Was sport, but found that they were fools. Of course the rule, I s’pose you know, That Sophs to Freshmen are a foe. No peace between the two can reign, They must be foes, and foes remain. One day from Freshmen, bravo, came A challenge for a foot-ball game. Like David’s meeting Anak’s son Of them the Sophies made but fun, They surely thought it quick to win Against a set of chaps so slim ; And all you heard the Sophies say Was we with them will walk away, And if they try to give their yell We ' ll chase them from the field pell-mell. But when that foot-ball game began Between the Sophies and Freshmen, The Sophies were so very rash And for the Freshmen made a dash, But Ninety-Nine know all the tricks Soon Ninety-Eight was in a fix, For Reagle made a splendid run, And then began the Freshies’ fun. 166 Such shouts of joy as rent the air Were never heard, I do declare. For many folks had come from town To see the Freshmen “ touch — down.” As Ninety-Nine got on the top There was Pete and Rex and Johnny Kopp , Who yelled and danced, and cheered and coached As Ninety-Nine the goal approached. When Ninety-Eight a fumble made A Fritch was there the ball to take, And Artz who tried to snatch the ball Only got a fearful fall. Cal. Seaman , Steckel, Beck and Hehl I tell you, they looked sad and pale. And on the whole, ’twas all in vain For Ninety-Eight to play that game ; For Gruber said the fates decreed That Ninety-Eight defeat should meet. Of course it is too sad to say That oil that memorable day, (Don’t mention it to anyone Proud Ninety-Eight made not a run,) But be it known forever more That 4 to 0 was the score. 167 ©opvjrigfvts ai 5 atei ts. 1895.

In her boudoir, alone and brooding over a severe headache, sat that charm- ing blonde, Hannah Black. For that reason she was in a wicked mood. The night before, she had been to a Child- ren ' s Party where she met John Green- wald, a Freshman. John was a bru- nette, and as is always thought, “ A black man is a pearl in a fair woman’s eyes.” Their surnames referred not to their complexion but to their respective hearts. Hannah was noted for her charming manner, before which many a heart had yielded. It was this fasci- nation which she fully resolved to practice on the innocent boy. It was a well arranged plan and became known later in the College fraternity as an interesting contest . — Heartless art vs. Artley’s heart. Nor were their ages so widely differ- ent. The odds were twenty to seven- teen entirely in Hannah’s favor. The only reason to which she could attri- bute her headache on this evening was her continued anxiety to ensnare the newly acquainted chap. Night was dyeing her mantle, and as the shades deepened, her headache increased. Many plans whirled through her brain and it required a stronger mind than hers to endure the strain. How else could it be but that she should have a C2oi tii uatioi of ' XOontcnt ' s £Page. headache after such mental activity. It completely undone her. Her mother could easily see that something was wrong and tenderly demanded a reason for her moroseness. But Hannah was wicked and replied : “No, I won’t.” This was enough to tell her experienced mother of the cause. Hannah was told how to relieve herself and immediately started on a walk. Hastily dunning a wrap, she opened the door, and passed out. The streets seemed forsaken and encour- agingly she started out. Suddenly a form rounded the cor- ner. She recognized the form as her John, and barely reached the hall when she fell fainting to the floor. Mean- white, John was wondering what had become of her. It was too late. He was gone. He passed on, filled with many thoughts, and finally actually summoned enough courage toreturn to the door and rang the bell. Mamma hastened to respond. John saw Han- nah in a swoon, and ( To be continued in the ' 98 Ciarla .) Answers to Correspondents Birdie. — No ; Mr. Strodach is very economical.

He came to America at the age of 16, and secured a position BOA as bar-room sweeper, from which he steadily rose until he was able to estab- lish his own saloon in Allentown, Pa. He secured the patronage of the Faculty and Students of M. C.. be- cause of the shadiness of his saloon, secure from curious eyes, the superb quality of his stuff, and the exit feature which consists of an inclined plane with a spring mattress at the bottom. He is wealthy, healthy and wise.

Ail automaton, shaped like a human being, whose head is a carved chip, whence its name by metonomy. The head is fastened to a hollow block, containing the machinery, as a body, with four jointed sticks for limbs. A dress covers body and limbs. The machine is designed to perform any work found in silk-mills. It also, when passing the college on its way to and from work, by shriek- ing, laughing, yelling to the dervishes at the windows, shows itself. CHUM. — The chump who helps to vitiate the air of your room ; who reads your letters; who steals your lead pencils ; who breeds bed bugs ; who avoids sweeping the room ; who tattles on you ; who brings bums into his room ; who makes life a burden to you. “ Chump ” on him, and chew him up into shoe strings.

OUR BUILDINGS. 5Tlu fei erg of tfye future. © • f T STANDS on a knoll, reputed to be a mound built by Oy Indian princes in Hanover; bounded on the North by Sunday-Schools, directly connected with the institu- tion ; on the East by the Rittersville Park Hotel, with the purest distillations ; on the South by the Lehigh River, which is adapted for fishing, swimming and ducking of obstreperous Freshmen and Preps ; on the West by a lumber yard, conveni- ently situated, so as to enable the janitor to procure lumber for very urgent and constantly necessary repairs, caused by class- rushes, banquets and home-comings of the “ boys.” The University, for thus it must be called, will have build- ings of all kinds and adaptations, scattered over an area of 27 acres of the verv best farming land, where fruit and produce shall continually be raised by those in training. The build- ings shall accommodate no less than 1000 well developed boys of unusual attainments, and fully as many airy, fairy Lillians, whose ancestors were Fern Sem graduates. The places of mental strife shall be so arranged that they remind one of Johnny’s recitation-room or the barrel of Regulus. Among them the main hall, called Seip Academy, will be the resort of the Furies working through the Faculty. The gymnasium, donated and superintended by H. Herbst, M.D., Fx-Mayor and P.C. D., an able gymnast and athlete, will 189 be an ideal, and the prize for excellence in this line will include muscular Christianity. The lavatory must he so constructed that plumbers do not consume the contingent fee. It shall accommodate eighteen more than at present, and contain the best lyes, soaps and dis- infectants. Perfumes of the strongest fragrance for the re- moval of odors, emanating from lower extremities, must be used for the sanitary welfare of the students. A library, full of the latest approved guides to those travel- ling in the wilderness, will be placed in accessible quarters. On the left of the main building the kindergarten depart- ment will be built. Everything here will be padded to pre- vent sudden demises, and the hands gloved to lessen disfigura- tions of the countenance. Here also organs, tuned to nursery rhymes, will discourse music, and a soundless wall must sur- round the building to avoid interfering with meetings across the way, held by the brethren studying for the ministry. The Physical and Chemical Laboratory is replete with a full line of all chemicals and apparatus. The explosives will be of the purest nature in order to assure no hesitancy on the part of the professor to shuffle off his mortal coil. The steam heating plant will be used in summer to manu- facture ice, and in winter to stretch imaginations. A stable for horses and all other animals harbored will be in the best of hands. The Faculty will be as follows : 3TW Jacuftv,. 9 • Classic Department. Theodore ( Matthew George Literary Department. William Matthew ( Theodore William Jacob J )avy Johnny Davy Scientific.

ROSE 6 A. M. Did my usual work. Went to College but skipped the morning recitation because of that eventful day, ’s Commencement Day. She did well — so well that I was agreeably surprised. The same day, after enjoying a good supper, I met after church, where I congratulated her, and spoke of the exercises passing off so nicely. I felt very good, but how I felt when I left for home, no soul can know. Something has happened to my dearest and sweetest friend on earth. She is so quiet and abrupt in all her answers. ' Tis more than I can bear. May I soon have an explanation ! My sleep is disturbed very often, and every time I awake, and her treatment of me was uppermost in my mind. How else could I feel ? I love her most dearly, and now she tortures me so What is it all? When can I learn to understand why has so changed ? 198 §ur da , q) ui e 1 st$j, 1895. §i ROSE 8 A. m. Washed, dressed, and for the first time attended Dr. Garber’s Sunday-school in the First Ward. It is a large and well-attended school. The Baccalaureate sermon was very good.
