This, books can do 5-nor this alone 3 they give
New views to life and teach us how to liveg
They soothe the grieved, the stubborn they chastise,
Fools they admonish, and confirm the wise:
Their aid they yield to all : they never shun
The man of sorrow, nor the wretch undone:
Unlike the hard, the selfish, and the proud,
They fly not sullen from the suppliant crowd:
Nor tell to various people various things,
But show to subjects what they show to kings."-Crabbe.
" All things I thought I knew 3 but now confess
The more I know I know, I know the less."-Owen.
The maxim ' know thyself ' does not suffice 3
Know others I-know them well-that's my advice."-Nlenander

9 9 8 Ever true to its honor alld name,
9 Now proposes anew well to merit the
And before the great public and college world,
To appear and to pose as true college boys do.
Let the Muse now descend from her home in the sky
And inspire these efforts to deeds grand and high.
Sing, sing, heavenly Muse, of the college in gray,-
Of old Muhlenberg famed without mere display,-
Of its corps of instructors, whose duty it is
By example and precept to guide us to bliss I'
Tell the tales of the Freshmen and Sophoinores, too
And of Juniors and Seniors tell all that is true.
Sing, sing, gentle Muse, of the deeds of the boys,
Of the thoughts that they think, of their visions and
Then illume thou the soul with historical power,
To see what was done every month, day, and hour.
Draw the veil of oblivion aside once again,
That the past may be shown all the children of nien.
Let the past then pass by panoramic and grand,
That thy servant may view all of me1nory's land.
Do thou scatter the rnists of uncertainty now,
And to us show the wha! and the where and the how
For within these three words all our histories rest,
As with why all philosophy enters a guest.
But let kindness prevail in our treating the boys,
That we may not stoop down to what envy employs.
Sing, sing, heavenly Muse, in strains higher as well,
Let us dip into truth and the darkness dispel !,
Be thou spicy at times, and at times rise thou higher,
So that some thoughts the soul may divinely inspire,
And now, gracious Muse, all before us do pass
That it may now be PUBLISHED BY jUN1oR CLASS !

J Q3 vb'
N presenting this issue, the sixth volume, of TI'IE CIARLA to
the reading public, little needs to be said by way of an apology.
Since this is an additional volume of a series already begun,
there are certain conventionalities in some kinds of matter and its
arrangement, which We have seen it fit, at least in a general way,
to follow 5 but in the main we have aimed at striking originality,
at least as much so as circumstances permitted without breaking
what we may call well-established and acknowledged precedent,
and such as preserves at least the general uniformity of the series,
It has been our aim to present college life not in an ideal way,
such as would tickle one's poetic fancies and call up in the reader's
mind a veritable Utopia fanned by a pure and unadulterated classic
atmosphere, but to give a true version thereof, developed from
fact and suggestion, as it has really passed before us.
We trust that all-the meditative as Well as the light-l1ea1'ted-
may within this volume find food to satisfy their own peculiar
tastes, and may from its pages receive the highest mental edinca-
tion, for We have striven to furnish a board with the greatest
possible variety of dainties and delicacies, as well as a variety of
more substantial dishes, so as to meet the desires of all.
We have tried to tread lightly so as to leave no stain, and to
use the matter and suggestions at our command with a kindly
spirit,-such as should reign among students at all times,
Witli due acknowledgement and gratitude to all who have
assisted us in any way, we now, in the name of the Class of '98,
offer this- book to an intelligent and candid public.
as Q2 as
E tell you deeds of men of worth,
Of 111611 of high and noble birth,
Of such as human fortunes crown
And leave earth's f ate without a frown.
XVe tell you deeds and acts sublime,
That cause the bells of joy to chime
And bri11g a note to every heart
That it should ne'er from joy depart.
lVe tell you deeds not only high,
Or such as lift o11e to the sky,
As lead to joy-perchance to fright,-
XVe tell you some of middle height.
,Too, for tl1e students as a whole,
'We wave our Hag with joy of soul g
W'e tell the story full and true
Of captains all and entire crew.
The substance all is gathered wide,
From cloud-capped 1'IlOLl1llI to roaring tide
From Monroe's mountains, jersey's strand
From Brooklyn, Berks, Northumberland.
And 11ow its mission is to you
To show the deeds that man may do,
How women, too, with men may rise
Unfurling banners to tl1e skies g
How low to higher walks may come
And join in lines with higher some g
How sick and feeble may get strong
'And help the Cl1'G2l1l1 of life along.
From what is past we judge tl1e Held
That's not yet to our eyes revealed :
And tl1l.lS we judge man's future state
From what's disclosed by bygones' fate.

History of the Class of '97,
BY ALFRED S. HARTZELL.
I. And when even
was come, we did Uird
. I, zz
' N x' our loins and betake
fx ,W ourselves onward.
'Y ,, 2. And behold, as I
...XX -1 5 gazed into heaven, I
V q Yi XL, ' F gf did see four stars of
A ',5Pd5gic- 9 dazzling brightness:
.737 XNQV' the hrst, like unto the
ii'-3' 90 51,9 moon in grandeur, the
"TNQ Qsvffl' second, still fairer,
ME 9.959 W , and the last two did
fi, '- shine even as doth the
f f"2 Q ff 3. And I turned to
AM. F m y conipanion and
,xi 1. ' ,ilef 'lf '4-
said, Prithee, cast
thine eyes above and
tell me of these wonders,-whence
they caine and what is the meaning
4. And he answered and said, lVist
ye not of their import? Thine ignor-
ance is passing strange. Hast thou
never heard of that band of heroes,
mighty in deed and fame? Give ear,
and I will tell thee things, the like of
which thou hast ne'er before even
5. Four years ere now, there as-
sembled within the classic halls of
Muhlenberg ta place whereof thou
surely niust have heardj a company of
men from divers places.
6. Straightway did these youths
convene and organize themselves into
a mighty band, the fame of which can
7. CLASS OF '97 was the name
which they did adopt, and scarcely
had they done this ere the ever-lurk-
ing foe was on their heels.
8. The Sophomores, a rival band,
did gaze upon these heroes with the
eye of envy and vengeance, and, ere
they were aware, the Freshmen tfor so
were the heroes also calledj were im-
prisoned in the room wherein they met.
9. But alack ! alas, for the workers
of envy ! The doors were quickly
forced aj ar, and a grievous fight ensued,
in which the Sophs were vanquished.
Io. The Sophomores wept.
II. This was the beginning of niir-
acles which were done at Muhlenberg.
Nor did the Freshmen cease here, but
continued in well-doing, all of which
I cannot tell thee, for it waxeth late.
12. At the close of that eventful
year, they did bring about their great-
est achieveinent. A play, such as
ne'er before or since was seen upon
the stage, did they present, and the
fanie of it did spread throughout the
I. And he continued and said, The
next year brought these heroes back
again, renewed in mind and body.
2. And lo, another class had come
to follow in their path.
3. This set of "green goods " did
gaze upon the Sophs Cfor so the heroes
now were calledj with uncertain eye.
After deliberation of marvelous length,
they did produce a cane and lustily
cried out for a rush.
4. They rushed. Moreover, it
snowed the day following, and the
Sophomores did revel right justly in
5. Next did a voluntary it of for-
getfulness seize these heroes, inasmuch
as they did 11Ot turn up for class one
6. Verily, the professor's black bile
7. On a banquet they next did
venture, to the hamlet Lansdale by
name, Hllfl they did, of a truth, make
them a name at that place.
S. And it came to pass that the
Freshies had a sleigh-ride, also that
the Sophomores discovered ity and,
VVl1C11 they did return, they wailed
and gnashed their teeth.
9. Again was there weeping when
the Freshies attempted to create havoc
while the Sophs were burning Livy in
Io. Also did the Freshies bemoan
their fate when the Sophs cut down
the sign with which they had defaced
I r. These and many other things did
the heroes bring to pass i11 their second
year, of which I was an eye witness.
I. And he furthermore continued,
The third year did these heroes put
away childish things, and lo, they saw
even as they were seen.
2. To their sorrow they did lose a
few men, but, as joy ever follows
sorrow, a new man joined their ranks.
This man hailed from Kutztown.
3. Great was the work which he
accomplished, for he organized a quar-
tette, which later became the nucleus
of that world-renowned Glee Club.
4. This Club has revolutionized the
world of song.
5. But the crowning point of their
achievements was still to come. A
number of these heroes did assemble
themselves and began operations on a
6. Long did they work, powerfully
did they scheme, and verily, their
reward was well meritedg for, a few
days before the joyous Easter-tide, the
world of literature was raised to a
standard well worthy of envy:
7. So great was the book which
they brought forth.
S. This book was the 797 CIARLA.
9. Ere the close of this eventful
year did they again immortalize them-
io. A contest, in which oratory
held the sway, did they produce. The
air changed to a bluish hue. Demos-
thenes did tur11 in his grave, and,
truly, the sun did smile.
I. Again he continued and spake
thus, For the fourth and last time
did the heroes assemble as a class, and
behold, a great change had come upon
2. Two men, both great in fame
and name, had joined their ranks.
3. The first, indeed, was a professor
of the Anglo-Saxon type, imported
under higl1 tariff. He was, in truth,
4. The second had recently become
wearied of single life, a11d so he be-
came doubled. Moreover, tl1e double
men of ,Q7 now numbered two.
5. Such, then, were the new men
of the class.
6. This class, which had now
reached the zenith of perfection, did
bethink themselves, and decided that
it behooved them more so to attend to
the wants of the intellect than to
spend their energy in outward display.
7. Straightway, therefore, did they
do as seemed good to them.
S. And, while no public demonstra-
tion can be made of them, yet know ye
well that they are working sore hard
unto their own honor and glory till
their course be run at Muhlenberg.
9. And as he paused, I perceived
that he had finished, so I turned to
him and said, Of a truth, thy tale is
pleasing enough, but thou hast not as
yet explained to me the meaning of
Io. And he gazed at me with a look
of disgust and said, Oh thou of small
understanding! I had truly thought
that their meaning should have oc-
curred to you.
Ir. Yonder stars represent the
deeds of these heroes, which had been
of so wonderful a nature that they were
placed in the heavens by some myster-
ious power, which no one, nay, not
even scientists, can explain.
12. And together we proceeded
onward in silence, and lo, as I pon-
dered over what was said, I marveled
greatly at these things which were
come to pass.

NOTHER year is sped, another epoch in
our history draws to a close. For the
third time, now, a history of our doings
as a class is to be recorded. VVe need not
review the past years of our student life,
suffice it to say that, although we were green
and inexperienced as Freshmen, and somewhat
foolish and allwise as Sophomores, yet, our
hopes alternating with our fears, our fondest
wishes and desires brought to naught, never-
theless courage still survives. Now as Juniors
we make our bow, feeling that we have 1nucl1
to learn and still more to experience before we
lay aside the academic cap and gown.
Never before have such a sober, studious,
and industrious class of young men trodden the
capacious grounds of Muhlenberg, or lounged
under the shady maples in leisure hours. At the end of our career
as Sophomores we parted with regret, yet hoping that we should all
meet again after vacation would be over, and, even at our banquet
during Commencement Vifeek, our poet with poetical inspiration
sang of our life and duties as Juniors. But alas! when we returned
in September, our cheeks glowing with health, reinvigorated by
tl1e gentle breezes of the mountains and fields, strengthened for
another year's contest, a few of our classmates returned not unto
us but sought other Alma flfafevfs. Pondering on our motto,
"Re.vj1z'rc ad Fz'ncm," we obtained some comfort and forgot our
sorrow in the allurements of our studies, oblivious of Freshmanic
and Sophomoric intrigues and Seuioric effusions.
Although others persisted in telling us that our Junior course is
hard and difficult, yet our benevolent and worthy professors have
so enlightened our minds that everything seems to us mere play.
The poetry of Homer has imbued our minds with poetical
thoughts, and more than one member of the class has been in-
spired by the Muses. Then, tco, talking in Latin is nothing
uncommon where 'Ninety-eight's men meet. Chemistry has a
peculiar charm for us in that, by analyzing, and by synthesizing
the elements, we can comprehend the mysteries of nature. The
ontological and teleological evidences in nature lead us to the com-
prehension of a11 intelligent Designer and Ruler of the universe.
Thus the workings of the soul, its nature and reality, all have
been thoroughly discussed. In Schiller we studied the character
of the Swiss, and viewed the scenery with delight, we were
depressed at the success of the tyrant, but rejoiced at the final
triumph of the patriot. In oratory we have shown our powers,
and we look forward to the time when the Demosthenes of 'Ninety-
eight will sway senates and its Ciceros the political world.
'Ninety-eight is leading a reform in college life. Believing that
a college education should round out the man intellectually and
morally, as well as physically, they have sought to cultivate the
former powers rather than the last. A person who has mere
brute strength and glories in it, rather than in knowledge, is no
fit representative of college training. Thus it was that ,Ninety-
eight, instead of molesting 'Ninety-nine when they presented
their Herodotus play, set an example to all future Sophomore
classes in occupying the boxes and rendering substantial as well
as moral aid.
We had hardly settled down to the daily routine of study when
we were grieved to learn of the sickness of Dr. Garber. His
death, a few days later, brought sorrow to our hearts, and, out
of respect to the departed, we attended the funeral in a body, and
a committee was appointed to draw up, in conjunction with com-
mittees from the other classes, resolutions in memory of the
deceased. 'We missed his kindly face in the recitation-room. 'We
felt the loss not only of a professor, but of a friend. Emulating
his example, we continued at our tasks.
The Thanksgiving recess allowed us to enjoy our turkey dinner
at home. A few weeks later the joyous Christmas-tide ,found us
under the paternal roof, rejoicing over the birth of Christ. Many
and varied were the festive occasions we attended g not a few of
our members told the wondrous story to large audiences and were
listened to with appreciative interest.
january brought us back again to our studies, and thus, after
every vacation, we have returned with new hopes, our courage
revived with an eye to the end. Though life's pathway has not
been strewn profusely with roses hitherto, we have not yet ex-
perienced any sorrow or woe which was not mingled with joy or
pleasure, nay, indeed, sweet must have its bitter, and pleasure
its pain. Always in the darkest hour a faint light glimmers in
the distance. All the barriers that we remove between us and
the light are simply to give us power to overcome the succeeding
ones, and nnally to enjoy the end which we have sought to gain,
at J 2'
9 INETY-EIGHT in its past can most truly rejoice,
And in this its great 7Z07U should be heard every voice.
As a class they've ascended the third hill of time,
And are seeing beyond this a fourth more sublime.
And still farther the distance but faintly reveals
In succession the summits which mist half conceals.
XVitl1 a glance at the past that is chronicled now
On the tablets of time, to the future let's bow.
Let the Muse now descend and his scribe lead along
That the truth he may see and record it in song.
Do thou through the cold mists of the future to be,
Gentle Muse, lead our sight where this class we may see !
Now we see that the fourth hill is lofty and grand,
And beyond it we faintly see untrodden land.
O stay now, kind Muse, till our vision is clear,-
Till this class we may see with the eye of a seer 1
Do thou scatter the mists that successively rise,
Enveloping all till it blends with the skies !
Draw the folds of the curtain of myst'ry aside
That the spirit may see all before far and wide.
The curtain is drawn, and the mists all have fiown,
And the future before them we see as our own :
Some have risen as statesmen, as authors have some,
Into office of we-ight many others have come g
Some are preachers, some lawyers, some tradesmen of weight
And some others have other vocations by fate 3
But the class, as a whole, as on pinions of fame,
Has moved upward and made it eternal a name.
And thus, like the stars, they are centres of light,
And are lifting the world from the darkness of night.

History of the Class of '99.
BY XVILLIAM A. HAUSBIAN, JR.
.25 M Q!
HE history of a class at college may be
divided into epochs containing the
'Q ,L-1.,, 11 events which occur in the Freshman,
, wb W? Sophomore, Junior, and Senior years: The
f hrst epoch includes within its lnmts the
- , 1 great Freshman playg the second, the
QQGI? 7 ,A Sophomore banquent 5 the nthird, the Junior
Q G HOT Q5 hop 5 and the last, the Senior reception.
47. K swf! Although Sun in its youth, the Class of
LF' ,QQ has experienced two of these social
l GEEYl'LLPALtAl.WE I events. On June 16, last, we made our
DEM 'img tinal bow to the public as Freshmen in the
. . s ' Herodotus play. About two weeks before
0 A the production was to take place, we posted
bills all over the city of Allentown, and in
its suburbs, Catasauqua and Bethlehem. Those who have never
helped in the getting up of a college play cannot conceive of the
work and anxiety connected with it. I know of nothing so
troublesome, except, perhaps Cjudging from the grumbling of the
Juniorsj, the publication of a CIARLA.
XVhe11 at last, on the evening of the sixteenth, we had mustered
enough courage to ring " Curtain up," we were greeted with
hearty applause from the audience, which helped to steady our
qualzing limbs. Some very amusing specimens of stage-fright
were seen from the Wings ofthe stage. One gentleman was to
kiss a girl on the lips, but during the excitement he kissed her on
the ear 5 another was to discharge his pistol accidentally, instead
he pulled on the trigger as though he had hold of the rope in a
tug-of-war 3 and still another, who was to lead one of the ponies
across the stage, took hold of the pony's tail, thinking he had him
by the bridle. NVhen the curtain fell we all heaved a sigh of
relief, and especially did we feel elated on reading the favorable
criticisms in the daily papers on the following day. Our play
was a nnancial success, and we wish here to express our sincere
thanks to the ladies who were patronesses of the same for their
Gn September 3, 1896, we again assembled in the college
chapel, not as Freshmen, but as full-fledged Sophomores. A few
days later we made up our roll, the President having called a
meeting of the class, and six new members were added to the
already large list, all of them jolly good fellows. According
to general custom, the Sophomore is the most unruly and noisy of
all students by virtue of his positiong and yet I am sure that
the Class of ,QQ is not as Sophomoric in that respect as its prede-
cessors were. YVe are oftentimes called to account for whistling
in the halls Ca grave offensej, for which we can give no excuse
except in the words of Alice Cary :
" So don't you be afraid, boys,
In spite of bar or ban,
To Whistle,-it will help you each
To be an honest rnanf'
The second great social event of our college .life occurred on
the 22d of January of this year, when we went to Reading to
enjoy a banquet at the Mansion House of that city. NVe all had
a delightful time, and returned on the following day to find that
the insignificant Freshmen had torn up our rooms. This was
unexpected to us, as there is only a handful of Freshmen, but we
took it good-naturedly, thinking it beneath our dignity to quarrel
The Class of ,QQ is at present the largest class in the college,
and, although we are only in the Sophomore year, we hope that
in our Senior year there will still be together the thirty-six men
who are now Sophoinores. Many of our members have decided
what Walk in life they intend to follow, and I ain sure that in
business and in the different professions the Class of ,QQ will have
representatives of whom old Muhlenberg can justly be proud.

History of the Class of 1900.
195 13 J
VVe ask some slight indulgence,-
And please do not forget,
The Class of Nineteen Hundred
.J Has never seen CIARLA yet.
X qqn O' N the morning of the 4th of September,
1 , XX in the year of our Lord eighteen hun-
G' N M td' X1 dred and ninet 1-seven the face of
A Uiliw cr- 3 ' .
X A 'IJ X Fafher llfzzhlezzbezjg beamed brightly upon
lx N U L 'g all the friends whom he ha ened to meet in
L My PP
Q WK A X A his morning walk. It was that peculiar smile
f . . N t . .
Z., K I E 309 H -a happy, contented expression-which
' ss Y . .
A Iggy' 5 Muff' 1 N t has come to be a conventionahty among
'iii 1 35 men, for " There's a new boy at our house. "
iiifif VVell might the honest old fellow wear
f- ' that smile on that particular day, for the
day before had seen the advent of a bright,
handsome, nineteen-pound baby. Nineteen pounds is not quite
the Muhlenberg standard, and so there was joy again when, after
a few days, the scales showed a good pound more. The " new
baby" was hailed with delight by its three older brothers, who
were wishing for someone to amuse them. It is of the subse-
quent life of this fresh sprout from the parent root that I am to
write as a not wholly disinterested person.
According to the good old custom, the baby was named, and
this is its name: Nyfzfearz Ho7zdfz'd Muhlerzberg. Now, all the
sons of Muhlenberg had shortened names, and, when its name was
to be shortened, there came a tug-of-war. W'hat might it be
called? Nz'!s was suggested, but it was ruled down as slang. Then
Nazfghgf-Nazzghls was tried, but it was as long as the original,
and, since the boy was not at all badly inclined, that was discarded
also. So to this one son of a large and illustrious family belongs
the distinction of being the only one possessing a practically
" unnicknamable " name, and having a character not meriting a
A more peaceful infant can hardly be imagined. No long
hours of the night did Faihcvf Mzahlefzberg spend walking the floor
with this son to quell temper and general rebelliousness. In fact,
this for Njfzzfeafz Hozzdrzkz' has been a notable exception to the
general infant in infantile unruliness and misadventure. Its
nurses, 'tis true, can say that some of its brothers were brighter
mentally, but it is very questionable whether they can name a
brother more docile. That is a point in its favor.
Now, AQfnz'ea7z H07zdrz'd does not furnish as much fun and frolic
as his brothers thought he would. His is a sedate nature, not
given to boisterous play and romping. Indeed, so gentle and
loving is his disposition that he has yet to provoke a quarrel in
the nursery. Only once did his angry passions rise to any
height 5 that was when Nz'm'z'nez'n Went off to tea without letting
him know. Even then he contented himself at first in going
to his brother's corner of the nursery and mussing the bed and
hiding his toys. But at this point his anger overcame hiin sulfi-
ciently to lead him to steal a certain little clownls cap, which his
brother used when he played circus. Nz'1z!z'zzcz'1z retaliated by
stealing the infant son's best cloak and cap, but soon mutual need
of the stolen articles necessitated a peaceful exchange. Such
judgment and forethought on the part of one so young is certainly
commendable. Then Mfzzfeazz H0:zdrz'd played a little trick to fool
his naughty brother, Taking a few coverlets, he crawled into his
crib and quietly went to sleep, While nurses and brothers hunted
but found him not. Then Nz'1z!z'1zei1z,thinking that his brother
had gone out with his sled, made ready to despoil his clothes and
fondly cherished toys. At this exciting moment, the fire-bell
Woke the sleeping rogue, who promptly and innocently rolled forth
to see " What is the matter? " So taken aback was Nz'niinei1z
by this little pleasantry that he hung his head in shame and
never afterward referred to the joke.
For the 1'GSt, lY1'1ll'c'6H2 HU7ld7'Iid has refrained from joining in
the rougher games like foot-ball, tugs-of-War, and the rougl1-and-
tumble fights, with which his older brothers were wont to amuse
themselves, and he has easily contented himself with more gentle
exercises and play. Should .this docile disposition continue with
him through life, he will surely become a shining example of the
" Children of the Golden Age."
1' Silence is the zfirlzze Qffh0S6' who are 7101! wise."

ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT SEASON
dune I4Hl8, I896.
COMPILED BY BERNARIJ Rllzxzxss.
AH! THE BUD AT LAST IS OPENING
R3 V93 E29
OON the sun will Cancer enter,
Half of Jnne's already O,61'Q
Soon will students leave the college,
And be welcomed home once more.
Such a week of joy and sunshine,
lVhen " exams " are safely passed,-
lVhen the students' friends are coming,
Thinking them allwise at last !
All the city seems in motion,
Students marching up and down g
And as if to draw attention,
Some are wearing cap and gown.
Some ere long will meet their sweethearts,
Others them must leave behind g
Unto those the world's one paean,
Unto these there's grief of mind.
Freshmen seek to doom old Livy,
Sophs would steal or spoil their play 3
Juniors give their flighty speeches,
Seniors grace Commencement Day.
Ah ! the bud at last is op'ning,
Op'ning to a world of strife,
Struggling witl1 a world of action
To advance to nobler life.
May it grow and spread its petals
And its fragrance well diffuse 3
May the class that leaves the college
Rise from high to higer use.
Thus by them the world is entered,
College days at last are o'er,
Yet they have no more than tasted
Of the fount of treasured lore.

Vx vs as
IND reader, do not fail to look
Upon each page of this fair book.
Note well the clubs that follow now,
As one by one they pass and bow.
The classes you have inet before,
The Senior, junior, Sophomore,
And Freshmen skilled in every art
In which the sages share a part.
You've inet them on Commencement Day
And seen them all their skill display.
Now meet these clubs of every sort,
Composed of sage and Clown and sport.
O'er some prepare to shed a tear,
XVhile others bring you joy or fear.
These clubs have all a mission true,
The race to bless or tickle you.
Some are religious, others not,
XVhile others are we know not what g
But all we have recorded here
To make you laugh or shed a tear.

History of Euterpean Literary Society.
Q9 V79 Q5
" ATCH and advance. Young man, be circumspect. Lag not
behind but strive to lead on," The members of Euterpea
need no such exhortation. Ever since its inception in
1867, the society has advanced. Her interests have been guarded
with jealous care. Ever increasing, always improving, the golden
opportunity has always promptly been seized. To-day she proudly
stands, stronger in number, and superior in literary and oratorical
ability. The former needs no COll111l61l'E. The latter has been
shown in the various oratorical contests and on Commencement
days. The successful contestants the past year were Euterpeans.
In ,securing new members, Euterpea has ever been watchful.
Prizing quality rather than numbers, so that her superiority
might not be lost by careless disciples, she has sought those in
whom the ability was latent rather than those who boasted of
literary attainments, and thus she has gained both. The exercises
of the society, consisting of music, debates, essays, orations, and
the like, are so interesting that a vacant chair is seldom seen.
The orators do not harangue and inilame to actions, which, on
sober second thought, are repented of, but, in a calm, well-
pleasing style, arouse the proper motive in the heart of the hearer.
The collection of minerals and relics in the cabinet has lately
been greatly increased. Conspicuous in the cabinet are Greek
newspapers and a pair of sandals and War relics.
A number of books have been added to the library. The
pedagogical, scientific, and historical, departments have been
enlarged. While fiction is not rejected, works of lasting interest
and permanent benefit have been given the preference. The
assembly room has been renovated, and other improvements
have been made.
To her color, the members have always been true. True to
the motto which gives them a motive, true to her interests
whenever assailed, they have conquered and won fair laurels.
O well-pleasing Euterpe, on thee now we call,
May Euterpea advance till the last trump shall blow
The blast which will summon to rise or to fall,
When judgment is passed on our life here below !

History of Sophronian Literary Society.
HE Sophronian Literary Society was organized September II,
1867, with a membership of thirty-Hve, this number includ-
ing many from the Academic Department. Luther A.
Swope was elected first president. The society adopted as its
motto: " The end crowns the work."
The society met for the first time in its present hall in the
latter part of 1869. It was well furnished, and we are glad to be
able to say that the hall is at present an honor to the institution
as well as to Sophronia.
A library was soon started, and the number of books has been
steadily, and we may also say rapidly, increasing until the present
time, when the number is about twenty-two hundred and fifty.
These books form a grand thesaurus of useful information.
The meetings are held every Wednesday afternoon, beginning
at 1.30 o'clock. At these meetings, essays are read and criticized,
orations are delivered, the leading topics of the day are discussed
in the regular debates, and impromptu speeches are made.
If space would permit, it would be proper to make mention of
at least some of the ex-members of Sophronia, but even this,
space will barely allow. However, we can assure the reader of
this history that Sophronia is well represented in all the profes-
sions. Space will permit us to give but a few examples. In
theology, we mention Rev. Revere F. Vtfeidner, D.D., LL.D.,
and Rev. George H. Gerberding, D.D. In law, we mention the
Hon. I-I. G. F. Kribbs, M.C., and the Hon. M. L. Kline. In
the profession of teaching, in the pulpit, in medicine, in the
literary field, and, in short, in all the principal vocations,
Sophronia always has held its own, does hold its own, and always
The history of Sophronia could be written in two words:
'lAction ! Progress !" Recognizing that golden conduct cannot be
gotten from leaden instincts, Sophronia has endeavored, and still
endeavors, to get the best students, and does not aiin at inere
nzmzbers. May God bless Sophronia I

History of Augsburg Society.
Q9 L3 Q93
HE Augsburg Society is truly a blessing to all the students of
Muhlenberg College, and especially to those who are pre-
paring to enter the sacred ministry to preach " Christ and
Him crucinedf' It is hardly necessary to point out the benefits
of this society to the students, as the great majority of them are
taking advantage of the privilege and know the benefits resulting
therefrom. But for the information of those friends of the
college who are ignorant of the object of this society, a few
words may well be written.
The society was organized in 1892. The meetings are held
every Friday evening, beginning at 6.30, from November to
May. Dr. W'ackernagel, the friend of the students, gives a
series of lectures on religious topics. After the lecturer is
finished, the students ask questions on the lecture, and a regular
discussion takes place. 'When anything of importance occurs in
the religious world, it will be discussed at the next meeting.
Thus our students are kept abreast in religious matters, a fact
which we feel that the students from many colleges cannot say.
Last year the Augsburg Confession was the subject of the
lectures and discussions, and interesting and instructive they
were. This year " Rites, Doctrines, and Statistics of the
Different Religious Denominations" is the topic. The students,
truly, owe many thanks to the dear Doctor who does not deem it
humiliating to spend an hour every week with his students when
he knows he can benefit them.
Our hope is, that the students will show theirfappreciation of
the Doctor's kindness by attending these meetings as often as
possible. Great good has been the outcome of this society, and
much greater good may still be expected. May this society be
the means of arousing in the souls of all cur students greater love
towards God and man, and greater zeal to accomplish their future
work, namely, the upbuilding of Zion!

HE Muhlenberg College Missionary Society was organized on
April 19, 1888. The object of the society, brieiiy stated, is
to foster the missionary spirit among tl1e students, and to
arouse in them a generous giving for the support of missions.
The society holds monthly meetings, at which subjects relating
to mission work are discussed. The mission news are read, and
thus the success or failure of missionaries struggling in India and
other foreign lands is traced. Collections are lifted at every
meetingg these with the offerings received at the concerts, which
are held two or three times a year, are applied to the furtherance
of the mission cause. Practical mission work is also engaged
in by its members. '
The society was represented at the Central Luther League
held at Bethlehem, February 16, 1897, by five delegates. A love
for mission work is thus being aroused, and it may be the means
of sending more missionaries unto benighted peoples. An earnest
desire to get aid for missions is also infused into the breasts of
the members. May the good work go on I God's blessing will

T has been the aim of the Editor to make this department as
interesting as possible by giving to it its proportionate amount
of attention. VVhile he is fully aware that some of its readers
do not look for anything weighty or of a distinctively scholarly
character in a college annual, yet he is also aware that the book
will be read by people of all types and tastes-the thoughtful as
well as the light-hearted. He has, therefore, endeavored in this
department to offer to the reader a variety of dishes, of meats and
other more substantial food as well as of jams and sauces, so as
to meet the desires of all 5 and especially so since the greater part
of the other departments is intended to please and to tickle
rather than to instruct. '
The Editor takes this opportunity to express his indebtedness
to Professor George T. Ettinger, Ph.D., for his excellent article
on " Stray Thoughts on Horace," which, to the student of
Horace, cannot fail to bring many pleasant recollections.
RELENTI4ESS Death has torn thee from our side
Terrestrial life to yield. Thy vacant chair
Is oft beheld with recollections rare
E'er since thou wast removed. In vain we sighed
Repeatedly for thee, but were denied
Thy presence or thy form. Must we despair
Reclaiming thee for earth? Departed where
By angels thou art welcomed, who would chicle
These vain desires, our sighing is in vain.
Since finished is thy pilgrimage on earth,
Iiastthou no caresfor us? Canstthou have'
Of us who battle still with life to gain
Continued mortal being? May thy worth
Keep us to heaven united as we ought,
Resolutions oi Respect by the Students.

E, the students of Muhlenberg College, now in body assem-
bled, humbly confessing our dependence on Almighty
God, who rules all that is done for human good, do hereby
express our sorrow caused by the death of our beloved teacher
and friend, Professor Davis Garber, Ph.D., and in further declara-
tion of our sentiments, We unanimously resolve :
That we, in testimony of our veneration and affection for the honored
dead, who has been permitted under Providence to do so much for us and
for the institution generally with which he was prominently connected for
over a quarter of a century, will unite in the funeral services in a body.
That our profoundest sympathies are hereby extended to the bereaved
family, and that we commend them to the tender mercies of our dear
Heavenly Father, who doeth all things Well for them that love Him.
That a copy of these resolutions be presented to the widow of the deceased
as a token of our respect and reverence for the Christian character of a
scholar, leader, and friend.

Short Biography of Dr. Garber.
R. DAVIS GARBER, whose name is held in highest venera-
tion by his co-workers in the Faculty and by the alumni and
friends of Muhlenberg College, and who so creditably filled
the chair of Mathematics and Astronomy at the same place, was
born near Trappe, Montgomery Co., Pa., February 1o, 1839.
His parents, Samuel and Susan Garber, who are botl1 deceased,
were typical Pennsylvania Germans. His boyhood he spent on
his father's farm, and during the sl1ort public school terms of
that time he received Whatever training the schools of his native
county could afford him 3 and thus by faithful application he pre-
pared himself for the public schoolroom and taught for some
years. Yearning for a higher education, he next entered Wash-
ington Hall Collegiate Institute, Trappe, Pa., and prepared for
college. In 1861 he entered the Sophomore Class of Pennsyl-
vania College, Gettysburg, Pa., with an advanced standing, and
graduated in 1363 with higl1 honor. In September of the same
year he was elected as one of the instructors in Washington
Hall Collegiate Institute, and hlled that position very acceptably
until the end of 1869, when he received a call to the professorship
of Mathematics, Astronomy, Physics, and Geology in Muhlenberg
On assuming his duties in 1870, when the institution was still
young in years, he found himself face to face with multitudinous
labors and formidable odds in the difficult task of helping to build
up the college then still in its infancy, but, by indefatigable
exertions and singular fidelity, he and his co-workers succeeded in
successfully building up the novv prosperous institution.
On December 26, 1878, Professor Garber was married to Miss
Kate Grim, who still survives. He died childless.
In 1891 Ursinus College honored herself in honoring him by
conferring upon him the degree of Doctor of Philosophy.
Doctor Garber was a consistent Christian and a devoted member
of the Lutheran Church, and for twenty-three years he was
superintendent of the First W'ard Lutheran Mission Sunday-
School, having had associated with himself in the work as teachers
many of the students of the college.
As a scholar he was a well-rounded man, frequently teaching
in departments other than that of his distinctive chair. As an
educator he was favorably recognized by the people of his native
city in electing and retaining him for years as a member of the
School Board and later as a member of the Board of Control. As
a citizen he commanded the profoundest respect of all his fellow-
men. As a friend he was truly great-souled, his soul always
overflowing with the milk of human kindness. His love for
humanity, which was manifest to all, especially in his charity to
the poor, was one of the chief characteristics that distinguished
Doctor Garber. This is a quality which is above mere intellectual
brilliancy and learning, for it is, like God who is the great foun-
tain of all love, eternal 3 and this it is which lives longest in the
hearts of men-long after one's bones have mouldered in the
dust. It is, in short, the fountain of all that is good and the
greatest motive power in the whole empire of God.
His biography is better written upon the hearts of Muhlen-
berg's alumni and his many friends than mere words can tell.
Much might be written of so scholarly, good, and useful a man,
but we shall not tire our reader much longer. Although years
of beneiicent labors seemed welcoming and beckoning him still
onward, the summons was issued, the Angel of Death touched his
heart, ever pulsating with love and humanity, and on Sunday,
September 27, 1896, after an illness of one week, he was gathered
to -his fathers, where that magnanimity has heaven and eternity
before it for still more glorious exercise.
Short Biography of Prof. Philip Dowell.
HE vacancy caused by the death of Doctor Garber, was
acceptably filled by the Board of Trustees on January 12,
L 1897. Professor John A. Bauman, Ph.D., who very credit-
ably has filled the chair of Natural Sciences in Muhlenberg
College for a number of years, and who some years ago was vice-
principal and professor of Mathematics of the Keystone State
Normal School, was elected to the chair of Mathematics and
Astronomy. Professor George T. Ettinger, Ph.D., in addition
to that of Pedagogy, was raised to the full professorship of the
Latin Language and Literature.
The Board of Trustees also added to the curriculum of studies
a course in Biology. To this new chair of Biology, and to that
of the Natural and Applied Sciences left vacant by the transfer-
rence of Dr. Bauman, the Board elected Professor Philip Dowell,
A.M., Ph.B., of Brooklyn, New York, who will enter upon his
duties in September, 1897.
From all that we can learn concerning the Professor-elect, the
Board of Trustees are to be congratulated upon their wise choice.
Professor Dowell, Whose portrait the reader will find on page I3
of this work among the rest of the present Faculty, was bcrn at
Attica, Indiana, December 3, 1864. '
His parents came from Sweden, his mother in 1852, and his
father in the latter part of the nfties. They were married in this
country. His father was for years the faithful pastor of the
Swedish Lutheran Church at Attica. His early boyhood was
spent at the country home of an uncle at Galva, Illinois, where
he attended public school and Swedish parochial school. I-Ie was
taught Swedish at home and had learned to recite his Catechism
and Bible History from beginning to end when he was eight
In the fall of 1876, when he was twelve years old, he was sent
to school at Augustana College and passed through the three
years of the preparatory course, and the four years of the regular
college course, graduating with the degree of A.B. in 1885. The
summer vacation and the two extra years of this time he devoted
to physical labor on his uncle's farm.
After his graduation he taught Swedish parochial school
for some time, a11d during 1888-89 he took a business course at
the Davenport Business College, Davenport, Iowa, to develop the
practical side of his nature, and at the same time took up
Mathematics and the Sciences in the post-graduate course of
Augustana College. For a while he was Professor Udden's
assistant in the laboratory dissections in Zoology. During 1890-
QI he was professor of the Sciences at Hope Academy, Minnesota.
In the fall of 1891 he entered Yale University as a graduate
student, studying Chemistry, Mathematics, and Philosophy.
During the next year he studied Botany, Chemistry, Mineralogy
and Crystallography, Philosophy, French, and Biology at the
same place, mostly in the Sheffield Scientific School.
In the fall of 1893 he went to the University of Nebraska, and
took up Botany, French, Geology, and Physics.
In the fall of 1894 he returned to Yale, and the following
spring he received the degree of Ph.B. in Biology. This year he
took up French, Geology, Botany, Zoology, Heredity, Organic
Chemistry, Theoretical Chemistry, Physiology, Toxicology, and
During the year 1895-96 he filled the place of Dr. Coe, who was
in Europe, as assistant professor in Biology to Dr. Smith, at the
same time assisting Dr. Verill in Zoology and making researches
in Invertebrate Paleontology under Dr. Beecher, who speaks very
highly of his work done in that direction.
In the spring of 1896 Yale conferred upon him the degree of
Master of Arts for his meritorious work. Last summer he Worked
at the famous Marine Biological Laboratory of Wood's Holl,
Mass. At present he is professor of Natural Sciences at Upsala
Institute, Brooklyn, New York.
He comes highly recommended from these various places, both
as a student and teacher and as a man of sound moral principles
and as a consistent Christian, and we look hopefully forward to
the coming September, when he shall be to Muhlenberg what he
has been to other institutions before, and when in his person
there will be added another star to Muhlenberg's already glorious
Stray Thoughts on Horace.

Q9 V23 L3
ENTLE reader, have you ever read Horace? If you have
not, then you have missed one of the greatest literary
pleasures of life 3 for where can you find a writer so rich in
the practical wisdom ot life, so full of that charm that grows
upon us as the shadows of our days slowly lengthen with the
sinking sun? Little wonder is there to my mind that his pro-
phetic soul foresaw the fact that "a babbling old age would
employ his book in teaching children the elements in the outskirts
of the city." No doubt many a collegian has devoutly wished
that our genial old friend had never existed. Let such a one, it
perchance he read these stray thoughts, repent on the spot and
be grateful for the pleasure and the benefit the world has derived
from the lyrist of Venusia. For, when that same collegian has
grown more rotund and aldermanic, when his hair, like the accent
of the Greek verb, grows recessive, when he, now an " old boy I'
of the Oliver W'endell Holmes type Qmyfavorite type ot an old
boyl, begins to stay at home in the evening instead of going to
the club, you can find him, his slippered feet on the fender,
thumbing the familiar old copy of Horace that was either the bane
or the blessing of his college days. As a marked passage meets
his eyes, he recalls a bad blunder of Brown Cwho was very care-
less in his interliningj in which he murdered the innocent little
passage Tu 7ZZ.L?I2L77Z seffzfas Qthou keepest thy nestl by reading an
7' for the 11, thus making it read, " thou keepest the restf'
But I must not forget that I am not sitting before the fender
seeing the Horatian picture in the Hitting flames, but that I am
to answer someoneis query, "Wl1at constitutes a classic, and
what claim has our poet to that title?" To my mind, the
essential element of a classic, its living principle, is that ever-
present, ever-modern tone of human life and human nature that
is true to all time and in all places. We have it illustrated
preeminently in the case of the Bible. Its past tenses are ever
present, as when the Almighty calls Himself the Great I Am,
there is no past, there is no future, it is all present. So, in all
reverence, is it in the case of a literary classic. Truth, whether
moral or artistic, was the same two thousand years ago as it is
to-day. It is the everlasting truth that constitutes the essence of a
classic. Tested by this standard, what a claim for literary
immortality Horace presents! For are not the rich and the
avaricious, the envious and the ambitions, the aristocrat and the
parvenu, the shams and the frauds of society with us as they
were with Horace? And what he says to them, vzomizze mzzz'az'0,
Hts our time as well.
In all the range of literature, ancient or modern, I know of no
writer whose works are so autobiographical as are the writings of
Horace. From his writings you can, as it were, reconstruct his
whole life. Thus we can fairly depict to ourselves the mind, and
the heart of our author, for we learn what he hated and what he
loved, what he praised and what he blamed, what he said and
what he did. First and foremost Horace was a man to whom the
well-known expression of Terence, "Honzo many hzmzani 1zz'hz'Z
cz me alzkmwz pain," was altogether applicable. Little wonder
that Augustus and Maecenas became such warm friends! Have
you ever read the works of a more companionable author, one in
whom the feeling of humanity was more fully developed?
Whetlier at the court of August or, as he preferred, in philosophic
discussion with his shrewd and sensible Sabine neighbors, we ever
iind his warm human heart in the same spot. In Horace " the
milk of human kindness " certainly turned into cream. In short,
he was a Roman gentleman. In many of his precepts on neatness
and moderation he reminds us of the good housewife whose linen
is always of the whitest and the china of the cleanest, no matter
how much or how little there may be on the table. What a contrast
between such neatness and the tawdry, unpalatable display of
Nasidienus, whose impromptu shoddy aristocracy is revealed
when the dirty curtains fall and " drag more dust with them than
the north wind raises on the Campanian plains."
Horace was a patriotic Roman, a Roman of the Romans, who
by life and his writings did as much as anyone to bring order out
of the social and the political chaos incident upon the disruption
of the Roman Republic. I know that there is danger that some
scholars wish to make men like Horace and Virgil mere political
poetasters writing at the nod and beck of Augustus and his prime
minister, but such critics do not seem to have read the Seventh
Epistle in which our poet politely but firmly promulgates his
Declaration of Independence to his patron Maecenas, from whom
Horace had received a delightful little farm. Although he never
tires of singing the praises of " his little Sabine nest,'l yet he is
willing to resign all rather than to be subject to others. A man
who could address his patron in such a vein would hardly contrast
the valor, Chastity, and moderation of ancient Rome with the
servility, licentiousness and luxury of his own day except from
pure and patriotic motives. The pen of Horace was as mighty as
the sword of Agrippa, and his " Dulce cz' decorzmz es! p1'0paz'1'z'a
morzw' has been the motto of patriotism for two thousand years.
Horace is preeminently the apostle of Moderation and Con-
tentment. He wishes to enjoy the world and the life offered
therein, but at every turn we come upon the admonition to
moderationg as when he tells us how "the quarrel of the Cen-
taurs with the Lapithae, fought over their Wine, Warns that no one
enjoy to excess the gifts of moderate Bacchus." W'hat a stinging
rebuke to the many dissatisied, half-hearted Christians of to-day
is the following sentiment of the heathen Horace :
" In the midst of hope and care and fears and wrath
Believe each day for thee hath shone the last 5
As a pleasing gift tl1e unexpected hour arrives."
Again, he tells us how he is content with what he possesses,
nay even with less, and, if the gods wish him to have a longer life,
heis quite willing to live it 5 then, like atrue bibliophile, he utters
the wish for a goodly supply of books and provisions for the
coming year. He, however, leaves all to love and makes himself
responsible only for maintaining a calm mind.
This is the secret of happiness, the afgzms afzmzus, the calm
mind. The source of happiness is within us, not dependent upon
extraneous circumstances and possessions, just as the highest
pleasure is not in delightful savor but in one's self. How Horace
does delight to picture those poor mortals who are trying to get
rid of themselves by travel and all the pleasuresof this world!
But as little as they can run away from their own shadows, so
little can they escape from themselves. "Vicious Care, more
swift than stags and the east wind driving the clouds before it,
boards the beaked ships, nor does it leave the troops of riders."
" Gloomy Care mounts the steed behind the horsemanf' Again,
"They who rush beyond the sea change their climate, not their
soul? But, when a lover of Horace once begins to quote, the
uncertainty of his ceasing to quote is the only certainty about
him. Can there be any thought more modern than this: "A
vigorous inactivity busies usg we seek to have a good time with
yachts and double teams. Yet what you seek Qcontentment,
happinessj is here at Ulubree Ca very small placej if a calm mind
fail you not."
judged by the standard of the times in which he lived, I believe
that Horace was a moral man. W'hat a terrible picture of the
morals of the times does he give in the Twenty-fourth Ode of the
Third Book, in which he asks, " W'hat profit idle laws without
morals?,' Again he says, "It is virtue to avoid vice." "The
good hate to sin from love of virtue g thou wilt permit thyself no
wrong through fear of punishment 5 let, however, a hope of escape
be offered, and thou wilt mingle the sacred with the profane."
Honesty for honesty's sake is the principle. Were this principle
more in vogue in our day, we should not have so many defaulting
bank cashiers and other officers betraying public and private trusts.
Honesty in the grain is needed, not honesty as a fine veneer.
Polished hard-wood, not hard-wood finish, ought to be the pre-
vailing style in morality, The man who does not steal through
fear of detection and punishment hardly is honest.
The more I read Horace, the less am I surprised that the
emperor and his prime minister had such a man as their intimate
friend. Vilas there ever a more disinterested friendship than that
of these choice old Roman spirits? Certainly one of its leading
factors Was Horace's liberality of spirit, for, as he says, "it is
proper for each one to measure himself with his own rule and
gauge." Thus we find our poet making no demands upon his
patrons, for he was no fortune-hunter and most bitterly inveighs
Horace, like a true Stoic, strives to be superior to his surround-
ings. "I strivef' says he, "to make circumstances subject to
myself, not myself the subject of circumstances." Fortune he
praises so long as she abides with him g but when her swift wings
Hutter, he resigns what she has granted him, and, throwing
around himself the mantle of his virtue, he seeks honest poverty
without a dower.
Innumerable are the quotations to be found on riches. Like a
true preacher he cries out against the rich: " Why is anyone
unworthily in need when thou art rich? Wherefore do the
ancient temples of the gods sink in ruins? Why, thou wretch,
dost thou not pour out from the great store something for the
dear fatherland? " Did preacher ever discourse on more practical
themes? For in his day morality largely took the place of
religion. His religion, of course, was that of the Augustan Age,
and yet he very plainly acknowledges the existence of a Higher
Power and tells the Romans that they rule because they believe
in the supremacy of the gods. He had yearnings for more serious
things and a faith in Divine protection and a moral government
of the world. ,
It would be eminently unjust to regard Horace as a hard
drinker and a profligate, as some have done, because of his songs.
Especially is this true of those dry-as-dust critics who have tried
to rob the poet of every power of imagination and have, as it were,
dissected in cold blood every lyric, thus concluding that, of
necessity, every Lalage, every Chloe, every Pyrrha was a true
flame of the poet, who, in consequence, must have been a perfect
Don Juan of the Augustan Age. If these critics had a little
poetry in their own souls Cand that they ought to have, if they
wish to criticize poetryj they could easily see that some, at least,
are Iicticious characters, children of the poet's own brain. In
these very lyrics he preaches moderation, praises poetry, advocates
contentment and rest of soul, condemns luxury, and eulogizes the
deeds of heroes. Although himself a bachelor, he reveres the
marriage-tie and respects the honest woman of the country.
As a satirist Horace ridicules the wrong and upholds the right.
The foundation of his wit is a moral earnestness whose aim is
improvement, not mere laughter. In all this Horace displays the
sound philosophy ofa rational cultured Roman, a philosophy of life
that seeks happiness within, not' from without,-a philosophy
combined with a nice knowledge of men, that penetrates to the
causes and the motives of action, to the seeds of vice and folly as
well as to the sources of virtue and wisdom. In the Epistles we
have a mirror of the poet's own life in all its thought and feeling,
and in them he lays bare his Whole soul with all its virtues and
all its vices.
Without the poetic genius of great creative power, lacking the
ideal flight of inspiration, Horace nevertheless has attained a
name and a place in Latin literature second only to that of Virgil,
In what does his immortality as a poet consist ? In the words
of another : " I-Ie combines perfection of form with range of
mental vision to a degree which no ancient poet of his country
attained except Virgil." A man of fine and acute sense and deep
power of observation, he knew artistically to express his experi-
ences and his knowledge with a joyful quiet and with fine taste
and grace. Not a servile iniitator of the Greeks, he chose his
own style, followed his own inclination, regarded the needs of
the times, and impressed upon the products of his Muse the mark
of his own mind and character in unmistakable signs.
With human weaknesses he combined unusual qualities of
mind and heart and raised himself by his character no less than
by his talent. He bowed to monarchy without yielding his inde-
pendence g he lived in the midst of luxury Without losing his love
for the quiet and the simplicity of rural life. Wliat makes him
dear to all is, that he was a frank and open-hearted man, a true
friend, unrestrained towards superiors, gentle to inferiors.
In his philosophy he combined the good of the Stoic and of the
Epicurean, which, based upon his own -wisdom of the world,
formed a plain, practical philosophy of common sense. In the
Words of one of his translators, he " insists that life shall at least
bear the fruits of integrity, truth, honor, justice, self-denial, and
brotherly charity." "Of Rome or of the Roman mind," says
Dean Milman, " no one can know anything who is not profoundly
versed in Horace, and whoever really understands him, will have
a moreperfect and accurate knowledge of the Roman manners
and the Roman mind than the most diligent and laborious investi-
gator of the Roman antiquities." In view of his broad human
sympathies, his warm heart, his urbane nature, his vigorous
common sense, his mastery of expression, his poetic sentiment,
and his moral teaching, is it at all strange that Horace has been
a favorite with men the most diverse in nature, culture, and pur-
suits? Dante rates him second to Homer, Voltaire calls him
" the best of preachers 3 " Lord Chesterfield says, " When I
talked my best I quoted Horace 5 " Wordswortlu loved and ad-
mired himg Condorcet readhim in prison, and Gibbon says,
" On every march, in every journey, Horace was always in my
pocket and often in my hands."
THEY WERE SEATED IN THE TWILIGHT
:AV vb' 1.95
HEY were seated i11 the twilight,
Swinging in a haniniock low 3
All around seemed still to listen
Unto them respect to show,
Save where chirped the pensive cricket
In its hiding-place unseen,
Save where flowed the rippling waters
Mirror-like its banks between.
Now the moon, just past its fullness,
Gloriously began to rise 3
One by one the stars of heaven
Opened Wide their holy eyes.
As the clouds of night were lowered
Adding grandeur to the scene,
And were mirrored in the waters
Flowing those two skies between,-
Softly spake he to the maiden
As she blushed a paler hue :
lVhat a lovely eve for lovers,
Lovers to each other true !
How the nioon, the stars, all nature,
Seem to join in one sweet song
To enhance our pleasure, dearest,
Far above the tale of tongue I
How the night has coarser voices
Hushed in silence, save a few I
How delightful in life's morning
Thus to love and thus to woo ! "
Thus he spake, and she in answer,
'With her tender hand in his :
True, this is an eve for lovers
To enjoy a place like this."
Thus spake she, her fair eyes gleaming
As she niused upon the scene
There in perfect image mirrored
On the waterls perfect screen.
Then her eyes she turned to heaven,
Looking 011 that sky above 3
Then she viewed that sky reflected,
Then the one who called her L' Love.
He in silence had been waiting
For that sweet angelic look g
And, as eye with eye was rneeting,
Then her other hand he took g
And again he broke the silence,
And in tender words began :
Dost thou love nie, sweetest maiden,
Canst thou love another man? "
But before she could give answer,
From the bongh of that same tree
Came the words distinctly spoken,
" VVho I who! who ! " most free.
And they from their rapture startled,
Thinking that some one was near
And had heard them speak and watched them
But they found an owl their fear.
All the stars had shifted places 5
Now the moon was risen high,
And was smiling gently at them
From his chariot in the sky.
All again seemed still to listen
Save the rippling water's How,
And from time to time their converse
Broke the silence, as you know.
Thus for three sweet hours they sat there,
Thinking each the other dear,
YV hen a cricket neared and murmured :
U Do your mothers know you're here? "
Then they homeward quickly started,
He proposing her to wed g
And the lights they found extinguished,
For the folks had gone to bed.
The Coming Profession.
195 5 J'
HE dawning of the nineteenth century found upon the stage
of human action what has appropriately been called the
educational reformation. This scene was being enacted by
the world's master minds. Although the revolutions in thought
have been great, it is only to-day that the magnitude and the
magic development of this movement are beginning to be fully
realized. The sunrise of this century lifted from the world the
mantle of darkness that had hung over it through the ages, and
sent its rays along the slope of Time. The fruits of the many
conflicts of the past have all been gathered into the garners of the
present. Although great have been the achievements in educa-
tion during this passing century, we are yet in a state of rapid
transition. The past has, indeed, greatly widened the field of
knowledge and improved the methods of imparting it, but greater
improvements will yet be made in both matter and method. In
bygone ages, education belonged only to the nobility and to the
wealthy, who exercised a tyrannical and exclusive control over
the millions who lay wrapt in ignorance and superstition, But
this age has made learning, once the instrument of this bondage,
the instrument of universal civilization and reform. Education
is being recognized more and more as the silent power that
advances the material interests of man, that enlightens the present
and future with the doctrines and thoughts of former ages, and
that thus advances the march of civilization.
Momentous as the results of true education are, we are sur-
prised that so many will not yet recognize it. Teachers are still
often despised, and teaching is regarded as of only temporary
interest, The past found largely such persons teaching as had
failed in some other profession or trade. It was the consensus of
opinion that anybody could teach, even Without special prepara-
tion. Teaching has not yet fully been regarded as a profession,
but the time is rapidly approaching when it will take its place by
the side of medicine, theology, and law. It already has the
requisite marks of a profession. Its operations are truly scientinc 5
previous preparation and special training are regarded as neces-
sary requirementsg and a spirit of fellowship, unity, and self-denial
pervades the army of teachers and binds them into one great
brotherhood. These marks would not yet make teaching a pro-
fession, but the noble aim, the crowning glory of every profession,
makes teaching worthy of being called " The Fourth Profession. "
Thus it is clear that teaching should be recognized as occupying
a place by the side of medicine, theology, and law. Are We ready
to accept this truth? Or shall We forever close our eyes against
that light which is to illuminate the destiny of our race? Shall
we forever refuse to take hold of possibilities by which we may
usher upon the stage of action a state of higher human perfection ?
It has been Well said, " This world is what we make it." Truly,
by the diffusion of knowledge, by a proper action of mind upon
mind, earth may be converted into a heaven. It is to universal
education that we owe gratitude for the progress in this enlight-
ened age, for the recognition of the equality of all men,-thc
central idea of the Declaration of Independence,-and for the
advanced republican doctrines of modern government.
In former centuries it was a pet object of rulers to consign the
education and civilization of man to chance, thus to keep him
ignorant of the imperfections of government, so that he might
more easily be ruled and enslaved by the ruler. Sir Wm.
Berkeley of Virginia, when in the zenith of his glory, said, " I
thank God there are no free schools nor printing, and I hope We
shall not have these for a hundred years 3 for learning has brought
disobedience and heresy and sects into the World, and printing
has divulged them and libels against the best government. God
keep us from both." That great enemy of popular education,
immortal for conjoined bigotry and cruelty, could not well
have wished a greater misfortune, a greater curse, to rest
upon the progress of man. We may in vain scan the poetry of
history, and never again find a measure so faulty, a foot so
twisted, a statement so erroneous as his. If we were forever to
be deprived of schools and education, mankind would be reverted
into a state of ignorance and superstition, of heathendom and
bondage, like unto that which reigned in the dark ages. Yea, I
should not doubt but that man would fall lower in the scale of
being than in all the historic ages. The past would but be a
penumbra of that deeper and darker eclipse which would totally
obscure the great gulf of hope that links man to God. May we
not fancy that those who fell as martyrs in the cause of education,
would, in sorrow, push aside the curtains of paradise to behold
such a scene !
May the Great Ruler of events avert such a fate from fallen
humanity ! But if we descend one step in the stairway of memory
we shall recall that Berkeley and the other great enemies of
education in the past are dead, and that their cursing wishes and
efforts are blasted, while the enemies of this age are but insignih-
cant spiders in vain trying to bind a giant with their fragile webs.
This age profits by their faults. A new era has been ushered
in by the work of education, and the great book of nature with
pages of blessing is open to man, He now looks through nature
up to the nature's God.
The geologist strikes the rock with his hammer and it tells its
history. The philosopher analyzes the spectrum, and tells the
composition and distance of suns and stars. The telescope reveals
distant worlds, and makes them tell their miles and marches.
Archimedes of old said, 1' Give 1ne a place to stand, and with my
lever I will move the world." The modern mathematician says,
" Give me the laws of gravitation as the fulcrum, mathematics as
the lever, and my study as a place to sit, then I will move the
very heavens, and create in them tongues to tell their mysteries."
In this golden age, steam conveys our luggage, the press immor-
talizes the thoughts of men to be handed down to succeeding
ages, and hisgmessages are carried by electricity over wires of
intelligence that link the whole civilized world into one great
unity. What I all this the result of the diffusion of knowledge?
Yes, truly, teaching is the mother of all science, art, and progress.
May you be instrumental in effecting such wonders I Verily, the
teacher of simple childhood often sows the seeds for harvests
glorious. It is he who cultivates the newlands of mind 3 it is he
who has under his charge the future Ciceros, Newtons, Miltons,
and Voltaires. Should he not lead onward his Ciceros, Newtons,
and Miltons, and put upon a better path his Voltaires? Is this
the end of the teacher's mission? No 5 but he is cultivating
minds that are candidates for eternity. He is giving guidance to
an immortal spirit, and leading infancy in the path of duty to
scale the heights of Wisdom where angels condescend to dwell
Wliy, then, shall we not allow truth and wisdom to travel down
from those heights of philosophy to the humbler walks of life,
and thus up again from the simplest ideas to discoveries that map
out new eras for man? VVhy not make education universal and
teaching a profession? May We not fondly hope that the God of
events will one day effect an intellectual and moral creation by
saying, Let there be light. Teaching ought to be, and will be,
recognized not merely as one of the professions, but as Me profes-
sion. It is of far higher consequence than either medicine or law,
and, candidly speaking, claims precedence to theology. It yields
theiirst place to theology merely through reverence. The teacher
and the preacher have the same end in view-the perfection of
our race, yet the preacher receives the character only as the
teacher has moulded it. It is the teacher who receives the twig
to bend it properly, for as the twig is bent the tree inclines.
Grand and noble teacher, you are the unrecognized ruler of the
destinies of man I You are the director of those beings who were
created a little lower than the angels! You are eventually to
bring man back to the lost gates of paradise I
To those of my readers whose life's aim it is to help onward
the progress of man to this end by entering the profession, let me
say, Cherish the thought that you are cultivating Helds closely
hlled with plants whose existence is commensurate with eternity.
Do your duty faithfully, then will the Divine Teacher bless your
humble efforts and afford you the hope of a glorious immortality.
Your influence will be indelibly graven upon the tablets of
memory, and the results thereof will go down into the chronicles
of man. You will erect monuments for yourselves, monuments
not made of marble or granite, but monuments whose bases are
your humble efforts, and Whose summits will touch heaven, caus-
ing the silver strings of the stars to vibrate with majestic music.

HO, then, is king to cause to come
The great of earthls events,
To mix the world, make tyrants dumb,
Raise palaces from tents?
The teacher is that uncrowned king,
VVho meekly spreads with care
The seeds whose fruits make monarchs wring
Their hands in mad despair.
O monarch, tyrant, ruler, lord,
Thy boast may be of power 5
Thou art but for a time adored,
Thy reign's but for the hour.
Though nations may now bow the knee
Before thy scepter's sway,
Ere long that sway will die with thee
And pass from earth away. '
Though kingdoms you may have subdued,
And reigned from sea to sea,
Another soon has thee pursued,
And snatched the reign from thee.
And thus the boast of power will pass,
The glories of mighty state g
The Vanities the sovereign has
He must consign to fate.
O Might, O Power, O Empty Pride,
How transient is thy reign !
Forgotten it will be unsighed,
And oft leave but a stain.
And so it fares the crowned head
Who works not on the mind 5
His work of might will Cease, when dead,
Oblivion to rind.
P 1 50
The teacherls labors ne'er will die
Because they are on mind g
They will but shine more bright on high
Through ages undenned.
The teacher moulds the future bards,
The kings and warriors great,
The private citizen who guards
The welfare of the state.
The Luthers, and the Newtons, too,
The orators he has,
The infidels to make them true
To God and to the mass.
O teacher, do thou play thy part
In leading on your race,
That thou a living factor art
To bring it back to grace.
Though paradise was lost of yore
On fated Edenls ground,
Wie find one on that blissful shore,
That stands through ages round.

O king uncrowned, you need no crown
To show that you're a king,
For from your life all ages down
Your work will blessings bring.
Fulfill your duties while you may,
That on a life well spent
You can look back to View your day
As blessing on man spent.
Spread out your hands upon the world,
Your benedictions raise,
Till prejudice against you hurled
Shall all be turned to praise.

ROM ti1ne prehistoric, e'er writing began,
When the world was in darkness, uncivilized man,
When gods to be worshiped had first to be made,
VV hen of ghosts and hobgoblins mankind were afraid
They peopled all nature with spirits 1 the deeds
Of the world were decreed by the Fates for the needs
Of mankind. Then symbols were used to denote
These deifications, and signs oft remote,
Such as flying of birds and the place of the stars,
Xllere made use of to tell what promotes or debars.
The language of colors and flowers then, too,
XVas noticed with care their life's journey all through.
Then yellow meant jealousy, blue was for true,
Another for conquest, as then they best knew.
And such signs and symbols as then were first used,
Through the flight of the ages were often abused.
And yet-to this day we to many adhere,
And many, indeed, all the nations revere 3
And, although perhaps lost their signincance is,
No nation their great inspiration would miss.
Thus all bodies of men, whether social or state,
Some colors adopted to symbolize fate,-
How perchance they success to their acts might portend
And conduct them i11 strife, or make enemy friend.
A flag by all nations is carried ahead
As they enter a struggle and onward are led.

And win every conquest we may take in hand !

Ever upward to march at our goal to arrive,-
A goal, I predict, that exalted shall be
And be seen o'er this nation from sea unto sea.
'Ninety-eight shall step forth from Old Muhlenberg's halls
To be heralds of light where'er duty them calls :
They shall center-lights be in departments of truth,
And mankind upward lead unto manhood from youth.
Their name shall be sounded from pole unto pole
For discoveries of truth and for greatness of soul.
Then herets to our class, let us drink to its joys,
To its fame in the future as true college boys :
The name of each member shall chronicled be
On the roll of the sages for ages to see,
And perchance some on tablets as leaders of state,
And some others in ledgers as tradesinen by fateg
But the class as a whole ever upward shall rise
As a Phoenix ascends till it blends with the skies,
And no one shall ever fall short of the sign
Which symbolized is by these colors divine.
Chosen Ensign, stream forth till this nation shall see
Thee waving in triumph from sea unto sea !
'Ninety-eight thee shall follow united and strong
Wherever thou leadest her life-path along.

Then wave, guide aloft, till united we stand
In the vanguard of truth senipiternal and grand !

From truth unto truth up to wisdom sublime.

Q9 V99 J'
ONSIDERED physically, a man is but a bubble formed in the
great ocean of universal life, soon to break and to be
absorbed into its original source, A man's life is but a
spring of action wound at birth and, unless an accident happens,
it gradually spends its force till death.
In the progress of the world, the life of each individual is a
well-balanced cogwheel working out of those preceding into those
succeeding 5 and thus the whole human race is one vast machine
Working through the ages and generating power and velocity for
the material and spiritual development of the world, in a geomet-
rical ratio, ever approaching, yet never reaching, a final standard
of human perfection.
Each single soul, though short-lived as a span,
Supplies a link in God's eternal plan
To chain earthls action into one grand whole,
Fore'er approaching H13.11kl11d,S perfect goal.
Such is a human being in his relation to humanity as a whole.
Thus, While life is as evanescent as a dream in the night, philo-
sophically considered, its roots are firmly ramifying through the
soil of the succeeding ages, while, with its branches penetrating
into the vantage-ground of heaven, its blossoms shed their
fragrance throughout the ethereal regions of eternity forever.
Taking a single human life, We may aptly compare it to a day.
As the sun comes up out of the depths of the east, diluting night
into a faint twilight, the herald of a new day, so the babe rises
from life's great ocean, beginning a new revolution in the great
cycle of being. The babe now by slow steps develops a sense of
self, hence of dawning ideas, even as the sun chases the twilight
before its ascending progress. The early morning of its life
having thus fairly begun, it learns and gathers many of the facts
of the world as roll by roll it revolves into further being. Its
individuality becomes more and more defined as the sun rises
higher and scatters the fogs of the morning. The sun is now
ascending halfway to the meridian, as upward the child is rising
into youth with a corresponding widening of its mental horizon.
The higher the sun ascends, tl1e farther extend his rays g so the
higher the youth rises into age the more he broadens into the
affairs and complexities of the world, and the farther he sees into
His forenoon now being spent, the youth rises into manhood,
thus reaching the highest ascent of his sun. This, truly, is the
great feast-time of life. It is now that he wings his way with
almost angelic possibilities to the remotest points of iniiuence and
the highest heaven of investigation. This period, by its accumu-
lated latent energy, extends through the greater part of life's
afternoon, but yet his powers are surely, but slowly, yea, almost
imperceptibility, shrinking as the sun gradually descends from his
high station. The sun thus continues to descend toward the
west, illuminating with a subdued light of glory the locks of his
temples into a silvery gray, a symbol of the approaching sunset
with the clouds of human misery, now overcome, fringed with
borders of gold.
Thus old age has now been fully entered, and with an eye, half
spirit, his soul, now laying aside its idols of earth, looks beyond
into the borderland of saints, calmly and composedly awaiting
its translation thither. Now the mingling colors of life's sunset,
dappled with roseate hues, and life's impending clouds set aglow
with golden colors by the glory of the coming scene, come hover-
ing over him, as the sun is about to dip below the horizon and to
retreat from the gaze of the world. Thus the deeper and deeper
twilight overtaking him in his last and lingering steps, he gently
sinks to his rest, closing to the World a scene repeated by every
human life g but ozzbf to the preswz! world, for as the sun continues
to shine on other shores, so he is again to rise, but in greater
splendor, and to renew on another shore the course destined for
him by his God.
With song of the Muse let me draw to a close,
And see how man's life like the sun's passage goes.
How dreamlike, how transient, how mystic is life I
It seems but a moment attended with strife.
As up comes the sun from the depths of the east,
So man begins life,-of all creatures the least.
As to its meridian the sun now ascends
So man to the world nobler labors extends.
His youth now well spent, and his manhood begun,
He moves through his zenith along with the sun.
His manhood now past, he descends into age,
As downward the sun moves the day to encage.
The evtning now settles and kisses his locks,
As unto their roosts last assemble the cocks.
The sun settles down through the roseate hues,
As man less and less what is worldly pursues.
As lowers the night like a mantle of gloom
Death kisses his brow that his soul may assume
Its gloriiied state in God's kingdom above,
lVhere no sunset shall come to those children of love,
But where Bethlehem's Star the great centre-light is
Upon which revolves all eternity's bliss.
Oh, changeful Life, how can I better tell
Thy truthful tale than in bard Byron's spell !-
Between two worlds life hovers like a star
'Twixt night and morn, upon the horizon's verge.
How little do we know that what we are !
How less what we may be l the eternal surge
Of time and tide rolls on, and bears afar
Our bubbles g as the old burst, new emerge
Lashed from the foam of ages g while the graves
Of empires heave but like some passing wavef'

ING on, sing on, thou bird of song,
Make gladsome every heart 5
Sing on, sing on, thy lay prolong,
Thy joy to me impart.
Pour forth thy strains of music sweet,
Entrance and sway my soul,
Till Truth and I together meet
In Naturels grander whole
To walk in sweet companionship,
Commune at Nature's shrine,
That Truth may deeper make me dip
Into her founts divine.
Let me a lesson learn of thee
How thee thy Maker guides,
Tl1at I may feel 'tis God that me
Directs where darkness hides.
Thou bird encaged, how canst thou sing
So cheerily as this,
And yet so sweetly as to bring
To me deep sense of bliss?
Thou, though imprisoned, patient art,
And ceasest not from song
To gratify thy I11E1StC1'iS heart,
Xvho cages thee so long.
He seems no tyrant unto thee,
Else how couldst thou delight
To sing for whom thou canst not flee
To wing thyself from sight,-
To bathe thyself in purer air,
To sing thy song on high,
To Wing thy way to places Where
All year the birds can fly.
And yet, dear bird, thou knowest not
'What dangers might arise,-
Thou mightest freeze, or starve, be shot,
If thou wouldst brave the skies,
A few short hours thou couldst survive
And then wouldst cease thy lay 3
Here thee thy master keeps alive
To sing his cares away.
O then how thankful shonldst thou be
That freedom is 11Ot thine I
YVithout life, freedom is not free
And cannot be divine.
Again, what lesson hast thou taught
To 1116 and all my ki11d !
'Gainst God to pride ourselves in naugh
For here mankind are blind.
How little do we know what ills
The world would have in store,
NVould not our Lord o'errule our wills
That we might praise Him more.
lVe, too, like thee encaged are
And narrowed ill our sphere,
Else we should soar from star to star
And perish there or here.
Then praise and adoration be
To Him who for us cares,
For He protects both us and thee
And homes for us prepares.
Thus, though the world a prison seems
And darkness seems to reign,
From out tl1e dark come blessed beams
That light life's mystic main.
Be ever Cahn, then, sighing soul,
Ne,er look too far beyond g
But yield thyself to God's Control,
And then of life be fond.
V53 V55 Q5
I-IAD seen some of nature's wonders before, I had drunk my
ill of many a beautiful scene, but when I looked upon
Niagara, as in the case of the Queen of Sheba of old, I could
truly say that the half of its grandeur had not been told.
To know Niagara, one must have seen it. Every season, every
day, every hour, every shade of light and darkness, every sun-
beam, gives it a new appearance. This is the reason why tourists
differ in minutiae. I shall therefore present Horseshoe Fall as it
appeared to me without entering into details.
The river, about a half mile broad above the fall, comes rolling
down as from a hillside, from the ordinary trot of a horse to that
on the race track, the waves all panting with fury to outrun
one another, till they are absorbed into one mighty overflow.
The rapids below the fall are no less wonderful. Every tourist
remembers the scene below, how the stupendous solid waves pro-
duced by the fall come welling up from the unknown depths of
the rock-worn chasm.
The Canada side bounding the fall is a beautiful park where
people can rest their wearied bodies while feasting their eyes upon
this great wonder of nature.
The chief obj ect of interest on the New York side, to say
nothing of the American fall, is Goat Island, which is connected
with different other places by bridges,
I shall now return more particularly to the fall itself. In shape
it is very like a crescent with its horns bent outward, its horse-
shoe shape having been lost by the erosion of the water. Its
breadth is nearly a half of a mile. Its height is estimated at 165
feet. It is staggering to form an idea of the immense volume of
water that is daily thundering down over this rocky precipice,
making the very earth tremble beneath one's feet, it being
estimated to be upward of 1,500,000,000 cubic feet per minute.
The depth of the sheet at the center is variously estimated at from
eighteen to twenty-two feet, where the color of the water appears
to be a deep blue. Could Horseshoe Fall be harnessed like elec-
tricity, it would turn theispindles of a nation.
The mighty plunge of its water forms a spray in the air that
rises at times to three times the height of the fall 5 and, in the case
of a breeze, it is carried quite a distance beyond its canons. .
As we stood upon Goat Island bridge at the very edge ofthe
fall in the forenoon, we saw a sight as beautiful as eyes may wish
to see. The rays of the sun passing through the spray formed a
primary and a secondary rainbow of singular beauty. There was
a general play of prisniatic colors as the particles of mist, like so
many little diamonds glittering in the sun, kept dancing in the
atmosphere. The blazing sun gave existence to a thousand
shades and tints that gently harmonized and blended into a pris-
matic arch of inexpressible beauty, while every Hitting cloud, as
it spread its shading wings over this unspeakable charm, gave it
a new expression, as if angels of different glory were unceasingly
changing the scene. And as we descended into the gorge, the
bow became more and more circular, until it appeared as an almost
closed halo at an obtuse angle with the sun.
As the sun ascended toward the meridian, this bow descended
until it seemed to retreat into the very waters. As now the sun
descended from his high station it sank into a haze as if in tears,
and got more and more of a halo of a sickening appearance around
it as it settled into the lower strata of the atmosphere and of this
spray, so that the scene was to the lover of nature a most sublime
one. And thus the Lord of Day retreated to his rest into his
burrows of the west, and spread his mantle of darkness over the
face of nature, and left me with a few companions there upon the
east canon of Niagara to meditate for a while in the intense gloom
upon this dreamlike scene.
After darkness had fairly commenced its reign, the moon,
coming up out of the east, glorying in its apparent fullness, trans-
Hgured Niagara into a scene enhanced by the gloomy solitude of
night that was truly full of awe. The stars, too, as they budded
one by one in the 'fields above, were looking down from the
heights of heaven as if to share with us the magical beauty of
The exquisite play of the soft moonlight beams in the spray as
vvell as upon the silver-crested billows above, the rolling thunder
of the descending sheet, the solitude of all else around us, night
with her thousand eyes above, gave a charm to this scene that
made 1ny breast heave and my heart swell and beat in unison
with the throbbing of this great pulse of nature, the proclaimer
that as long as it overflows We have a visible manifestation of the
wisdom and power of God.

Pretending to spea

But she, to
" Hast thou trouble, my friend, or wx y

t sllently lea
And, before he could answer, she thus him addressed :
" Dost thou wish 111y new painting to see?
It's a scene I beheld of the sun i11 the west
Far too grand for description by 111C.H
Oh, how kind thou art, dearest, thy wish is 1ny own,
It will certainly be a delight
To behold what these hands upon canvas have thrown
That it never might vanish f1'O111 sightfl
XVith her hand in his own, from the sofa he rose
This product of art to behold g
As enraptured he stood as if viewing it close,
He said, " Not the half hast thou told 2
The landscape is perfect, the clouds fringed with gold,
And the sun has a background serene g
It would honor a Raphael and masters of old,
So grandly portrayed is the scene."
lVith her now enamored because of her art,
XVhich her beauty seemed more to enhance,
He beheld the fair maid as if angels took part
Her beauty still more to advance.
Now his courage revived hiin, he could not contain
Any longer such feelings divine,
And the subject he changed, and in words clear and plain
He asked her now, " Xllilt thou be mine? "
With a blush on her face, the fair maiden replied,
" I can not refuse thy request,-
Thy wish is my own, and I can not well hide
That answer which maketh me blest."
Now upon her fair hand he at once put tl1e ring
The engagement forever to seal 3
And then homeward he turned like a bird on the wing
To his people his joy to reveal.
His parents and brothers and sisters rejoiced
At the conquest in love he had made 3
They greeted him oft, and one sentiment voiced,
That a dowry to him should be paid.

A Freshmarfs Love Letter.
J! .al V75
The following love letter was found in one of the upper halls of the college,
supposed to have been written by a Freshman who seems to be charmed in
l1is first love.
O dear, the look you chanced in glee,
My eyes can neier forget g
It was so full of hope to me,
It haunts me ever yet.
It comes when at my books I sit,
It comes when I'm at ease 5
It comes, and I am courting it,
E'en if I am at peace.
And I shall send this letter now,
As if I had a right
To court those curls upon your brow,
Although Pm not a knight.
Those rosy cheeks, 1,111 well aware,
Are kissed by prouder lips 3
But let me tell you, fairest fair,
They're those who tell you fxbs.
And so I'm not at all abashed
To ask your hand and heart,
Because I know that you're unmatched
In playing honor's part.
I hope this feeble message may
Be looked upon with grace,
May bring to me the darling gay
With condescending ways.
So feeling much relieved, I now
Retire with lightened heart,
NVith hope which neither foe can mar,
Nor friend can disregard.
IVe hope that this fanciful love letter may have its desired effect, and
that the day may not be far distant when this dreaming Freshman shall be
in his glory with his expected wife.

Base-ball at Muhlenberg the coming season, the prospects are, will be in
a very booming and promising condition. The business manager arranged
a very creditable schedule of games. The schedule shows that Muhlenberg
College is booked for fifteen games, all of which are to be played on the
college campus. Quite likely the most interesting game that will be played
the coming season, will be the one between the Fein. Sem. nine and Muhlen-
berg's post-graduate team. Vt7ith interest do we look forward to this game.
Both nines are well matched, and Va good and interesting game is expected.
Our nine is daily practicing on the campus so as to be in good condition for
the coming event. Our wishes are that Muhlenberg, as a whole, may be
found to be loyal to her colors on that great occasion. May she encourage
our nine to go into the battle with vim and courage, so that i11 the end
Muhlenberg College may, for the third time, be found at the head of the
Intercollegiate Base-Ball League.

During the course of the exercises, one of the boys swzlfbed the college bell.
No one missed it until Prof. K. heard the boys ring it on the campus.
Immediately two lady teachers were dispatched after them, the boys were
overtaken on top of Hamilton Street hill, where, after some entreating on
the part of the teachers, it was handed over to them, because they were of
the other sex. The following article, written in memory of this occasion,
appeared in The College Folio .-
THE FIRST BOOK OF CHRONICLES OF THE CHILDREN OF LUTHER.
I. Now it came to pass in the eleventh month and the seventeenth day of
the n1ontl1, that the children of the house of Luther gathered themselves
together, with many others, from one end of tl1e city even to the other end,
to play on instruments and sing songs before the house of Zwingli.
2. And a son of Muhlenberg, and all Luther played before Zwingli with
all their might, and with singing and with flutes and with instruments that
make a pleasant sound: and they were with the children of Zwingli many
hours, charming them with their courtesy and with their grace.
3. Now it came to pass as they sat in the house, the sound of the warning
bell was heard : yet the children of the house of Luther heeded it not, and
seemed not to hear it with their ears.
4. And it came to pass the same night, when half an hour had expired,
at the time when the lights go out, and at the ringing of the second bell, a
Freshmanite led forth the hosts of the country of Luther to go to their own
5. But he rendered not again according to the benefits done unto him.
6. For it came to pass after this that a certain ruler of the house of
Zwingli called quickly to another ruler, saying, Take heed, now, for do I
not hear in the midst of the elm trees the sound of a ringing bell?
7. And is it not the bell which we cherish? and with which we call
together the young maidens to council in the schools of Zwingli?
8. And the young ruler answered, Yea, verily! it is so. Shall we over-
take the young men and bring again the bell of our house to us?
9. And the chief ruler answered, If it seems good unto thee, let us run
after the young men who have dealt treacherously with us, have betrayed
our hospitality, and have done evil Ll11l1O us this night.
io. So the valiant rulers of the house of Zwingli followed hard after the
young men and overtook them in the borders of the Luther country.
II. And the chief ruler stood upon the hill and said, Hear me, thou son
of Muhlenberg, and all Luther: Ought ye not to know that ye were per-
mitted to sit with the daughters of Zwinoli as men and not as thieves,
barbarians, and rufhans?
I2. Has your training not taught you, vain men, ye children of Belial,
the customs of courtesy in the house of your friends?
13. And now ye tl1ink to withstand us and the kingdom 'of the house of
Zwingli, for ye are many. But we swear unto you this night, if ye hearken
not unto us, to deliver unto us the bell which one of you now holds under
l1is coat, we will speak unto the father of the house of Luther that he
make your yoke heavy, and that he add yet thereto, and that he chastise
you with tasks not easy to be borne.
14. But, if ye accept our council, and give unto us that which ye have
taken from us, and that which CV611 now soundeth under one's garment, we
shall 11ot report you to your father.
15. Then answered the guilty young man to him who addressed llllll,
saying, I pray thee, take thy bell, and I beseech thee, lay not my sin to my
charge, nor yet return my shortcomings to tl1e father of the house of
Luther, that he make not my yoke 111011-3 grievous nor my servitude more
16. And when he had humbled himself before the rulers, their wrath
turned from him, and they returned to their OW11 people rejoicing, and the
people rejoiced with them.
17. Now the rest of tl1e acts of this son of Muhlenberg and his ways, and
the evil which he did, will they not be written in the book CIARLA of the
house of Luther?

VVheu from my rooni I chance to stray
To spend an hour at close of clay,

But with the good no favor Ends g

Is making love to one's own wife.

depends almost entirely on the quality of the oil used in its preparation.
