DISTINCT knowledge of our own insigniiicance, when
compared with the vast interests of the great world around
us, does not restrain us from presenting to that world this
the seventh issue of our college annual.
A college is in reality a miniature world. Those who look
forward to it regard it as a fairy land g those who look backward
upon it generally regard it as one of the happiest periods of life.
And yet a college career has its trifling sorrows, its petty heart
In this book we have endeavored to portray college life. We
leave it to the reader to decide whether we have succeeded or
What is found writtenhere has been written in a spirit of
kindliness, and we beg the reader to peruse it in the same spirit,
We take this opportunity of acknowledging our indebtedness
.to all those who have in any way encouraged or assisted us in
With a firm belief in the forbearing spirit of the public, we lay
this book before it in the name of the Class of '99.

came forth peculiar sounds
branches of the tall trees
protect the building 5 other
thereon this inscription :
twittering notes of the birds,
" The soul of music slumbers in the shell,
'Till waked and kindled by the masteris spell g
And feeling hearts-touch them but rightly-pour
A thousand melodies unheard beforef'-Rqgevfs.
7 WAS a vast building in which I stood on
the morning of a pleasant day in Sep-a
tember, 1894. From the various ante-
rooms flanking the main passageway there
some rivaling the
swaying upon the
which seemed to
sounds there were
which were merely inharmonious and even
discordant. As I mused a wraith-like spectre
seemed to draw me irresistibly toward a
certain door, and from, the vacant hallway
there echoed the command: "Listen only
here." I approached the door and found
"Pedal Organ, No. '98,-38 Sections."
"Respice ad Finemf' QTrade Markj
While I was still reading the legend, a blast of air filled the room
and escaped through the crevices of the door.
" ' Bellows' and
'wind-chests,' either leaky or uncontrolled," thought I. "No,"
quoth the spectre 5 " the ' pedal organ 'g the part under foot g very
noisy 3 Freshmanic. ' '
Then the door opened and the organ was passed to another work-
room, where the timbre of the organ was made more pleasant by
an application of Latin inflection. And thus, from room toroom,
the organ-in embryo-was sent, each process rendering the green
material more pliable and workable. But, oh! how the artisans
had to labor on the green, obstinate elements ! At the end ofthe
first year the "pedal organ" was completed, and, having been duly
trodden under foot by the organs in course of construction, the
" Choir Organ, No. '98.-27 Sections,"
was begun in September, ,Q5.
In this period more attention was paid to refining the metal' of
the organ pipes, mixing the tin of blatant ignorance with the lead
of substantial dignity and with the zinc of deep determination.
Attempts were also made to restrain the empty and harsh sounds
reflected by the excess of sounding-boards. 1
"The Swell Organ" engaged the attention of the artilicers from
September, '96, to June, ,Q7. Heretofore the "sliders" had proved
unmanageable, and while this defect was being corrected a decided
tendency on the part of certain sections to become "couplers" was
manifested, ' l
This tendency became so strong in one instance that the section
dropped out and is now a family melodeon. Of course, through-
out the entire period of four years numberless "stops" were applied
by the master workmen whenever the latter deemed such additions
necessary 3 z'. e,, very frequently.
Toward the end of this building year, several "pipes" began to
spout and sputter violently, clamoring that too small an amount of
gold was employed in their construction. To settle the dispute, a
special day, June 23, was designated as the time of contest. The
entire organ-in its "Swell" state--was placed before the wonder-
ing natives, and in their presence the disputing "pipes" sputtered.
And thus it happened that in September, '97, work was com-
menced on A
"Grand Organ, No. '98,-21 Sections."
2 I .
But what a marvelous change I All is perfected save the tuning
of this vast instrument.
One grand provision has been made by the builders: each of the
twenty-one parts is in itself a complete instrument, giving forth
full, round tones without the assistance of any other part.
But, ye parts, in. after years, when the jostlings of unknown
friends shall have removed the veneer of affectationg when the
relaxations and tensions of your spirits shall have so tempered
your utterances, then let your melodies and symphonies voice the
praises, not of St. Cecilia, but of her Whose toils and fears and
wishes have fashioned you into this acceptable harmony-your
Alma Maier, Muhlenberg.

'I' was a clear and sunny morning. We had traveled
far the day before and camped by the side of a shallow
stream. After a somewhat hurried breakfast I took
leave of my companions, and, together with my faithful
dog, rambled in a southwestern direction. The sun was by
this time fairly risen, and, except for the inconvenience
of carrying a pick and several other instruments of bulk,
there was nothing to mar the pleasure of the geological
research in which my comrades and myself were engaged.
We had by this time reached a spot slightly elevated and
sloping gently towards another stream of lesser size, when
suddenly my dog gave a series of prolonged yelps and
pawed the earth in an excited fashion. I walked on a
few paces and whistled for him to follow, supposing that
his antics were caused by a hare or some other animal
with which the surrounding country was infested. Find-
ing this to be of no avail, I returned and attempted to
drag him along by force, but his whining became so
piteous that to satisfy him I dug a little of the earth away.
My curiosity was soon aroused by the unearthing of an
ancient bottle on which was still preserved an inscription. My
knowledge of classics came to my assistance at this point, and my
curiosity was by no means diminished when I discovered it to read,
Turpentine, for Bedbugsf' Convinced beyond doubt that the
locality contained treasures of marvelous antiquity, I continued
my labor till late in the afternoon, when to my utmost horror a
chance 'stroke of my pick revealed a human hand. 'Stimiilated by
terror and curiosity alike, I renewed my efforts and was inally
rewarded by what I supposed to be an ancient body in a remark-
able state of preservation. I stood for a few moments viewing my
marvelous discovery and contemplating the fame it would bring
me, when my dream was brought to a speedy standstill by a groan
which unmistakably emanated from the prostrate form at my feet.
My consternation can better be imagined than described when the
figure slowly opened his eyes and fervently said, "At last, the day
of my deliverance is at hand." I was seized with a superhuman
courage, and, kneeling by his side, addressed him to the best of my
ability in his own language: "Arise, and let us depart from this
uncanny place to better quarters? I-Ie rebuked me with a weak,
unsteady gesture, and said, " Far be it from me, for my time is
short. Listen, therefore, to my tale, ere I leave this cursed clay,
for my strength is ebbing. Centuries back, on the spot where
thou now standest, stood an institution of goodly fame. I, and
certain others of my kind, did enter that abode of learning in the
year of our Lord eighteen hundred and ninety-five. We were a
marvelous class, and our incomings and outgoings were regarded
with tenderest interest and deepest respect.
"In the first 'year of our pilgrimage we startled the natives by
an amazing victory over the class which did precede us by one
year. It was the good ancient game of foot-ball, and the memory
thereof even now fills my withering frame with a glow of
"On a sleighride we next did venture to the country of the
Nazarenes and did return in excellent condition by reason of the
fact that liquor was at a premium. Our next achievement was a
play in which our sterling qualities were set forth to exceeding
"The following year we straightway upheld our former reputa-
tion, and in another game did make the class which followed us
bite the dust. In honor thereof we banqueted in a manner which
became a class of our rank and standing, and ere we were aware
the second year of our sojourn passed from us.
"On our return we did watch with eager interest a contest
between the two lower classes. Fate favored those we had van-
quished the previous year, and we deemed it well to light them.
"Alas, our challenge inspired them with cowardly fear, and
they answered, ' WE DECLINEV Then did my blood boil. In a
frenzy of wrath over their dastardly act, I uttered blasphemous
words and-I shudder to tell it-was visited accordingly with
judgment. Into a lethargical state I straightway fell, and from
then till now have ceased not to deplore my rashness, nor am I
aware of the things which have transpired since that fatal day.

I The second year at college
,Q X' Is not quite like the first :
fl There's a little more of knowledge,
All But more that's vastly worse.
.fh,5f.,,,3,? is said that history repeats itself, a statement
which may be said to be particularly appli-
I , cable to the history of college classes. Each
. year brings with it the traditions peculiar to
itself, which all classes are expected to uphold,
. so the succeeding years bring with them much
' the same events to one class as to another. Yet
each class lays claim to its own interpretation of
A the traditions, and so will the Class of Nineteen
f That great event of Freshman year, the Class
Play, was attacked with vigor, written with care,
drilled faithfully, managed discreetly, and pre-
T- rd sented magnificently. In presenting Chffonoheier-
oioses the class felt an especial pride since its plot was a departure
from the cremation play, yet brimming with an air of college
humor throughout. That some of our members have' decided
histrionic ability is evident, for their conception of the role as-
signed them Was the chief topic of conversation during Commence-
ment Week. We refer with pleasure to the special parts in-
troduced: the dcmszzese, Whose terpsichorean feats astonished even
their classmates, and the musical freak, who Wishes to inform the
'T 33 T
public in this official Way that through the eagerness of his stage
audience he disappeared before he had cracked his best joke. No
casualties in the Way of stage fright occurred, but one of the
soloists nearly came to grief at the horns of the animal portion or
the troupe. Another singer encored so enthusiastically that his
accompanist Wanted to hand in an extra bill for paralyzation of
the fingers. Taken entire, Nineteen Hundred can assert Without
arrogance that its play contributed largely to the success of the last
Commencement Week. Remembering the pleasure and profit that
they obtained from their Freshman play, the members of Nineteen
Hundred cannot record with sufficient emphasis their appreciation
of the sanction and aid of the ladies who were the patronesses.
When We returned to school at the opening of the present col-
legiate year, it was in all the glory and with all the confidence of
Sophomores. We found ourselves confronted with a serious
problem in the shape of a monster Freshman class that had stepped
into our old shoes. We treated 'them with all the kindness and
consideration the situation demanded, yet With thepfirmness con-
sistent vvith our dignity. Our' roll was shorter by five names: men
Who had Worked for the class but Whose circumstances took them
to distant schools or other occupations. On the other hand, we
hailed with glee an addition of seven doughty champions. Of
these men one has a distinguished foreign name, one is a former
student returned 5 another's name is that of the leading suit in a
game of cardsg two brothers bear a decidedly musical name 3
though not a Mexican, a gentleman of happy disposition hails from
Vera Cruz 5 one is a contribution from our near neighbor, Lehigh.
We will also say that the class has adopted a member for good
luck in the person of its mascot, whose participation in the play,
some superstitious ones claim, made it so successful. So, too, they
aver that it was the possession of a mascot that Won us the great
foot-ball game of November Io, 1897. In accepting the challenge
from Nineteen 'One, We found our new men a great help toward
making the strong team that carried off the laurels, after a hard-
fought fight, by the score 14-Io.
After this we pursued the even tenor of our way until january
21, 1898, when we gave the Freshmen to understand that we
would hold our banquet. The joke was carried out so well that
even Seniors shared the excitement. The eventful day, january
28, found us with a plan to elude our antagonists again, and we
carried that out. We left at noon for Reading, Pa., and from
that time until the last of us returned, on the following Monday'
morning, there was a continual round of pleasure. We were the
guests of the Hotel Crystal Palace, and right royally were we
entertained. The banquet began at midnight, and together with
its intellectual accompaniments delayed our departure from the
festive board for several hours. Before the feast the members
spread themselves over the city, so that White and Old Gold was
conspicuous everywhere. High schools, stores, theatres, churches,
and private mansions were duly and minutely inspected. At the
close of the banquet the musically-inclined members . turned
troubadours and "awakened many a maiden by their sweet
melodious strains." We repeat with just pride that our class was
referred to as the most gentlemanly set of college men that had
ever visited Reading, So hospitable was the treatment of the
citizens, that should Nineteen Hundred ever wish to have another
banquet, that city would be her choice. We returned to find our
rooms in a state of frisky chaos-a compliment from the Freshmen 5
but we soon had order restored and bided our time. This came
when Nineteen 'Gne had its sleighride. On that night we put
forth our best efforts to make fitting amends for what wasmissing
from our rooms, and from our dignity. VVe had quite an exciting
time, and feel restored to our accustomed equanimity again.
Such is Nineteen Hundred's history since last it was recorded.
In looking over it we feel that the gentle reader will agree with
us that a livelier, jollier two years can scarcely fall to the lot of
any college class. A

picked up a few members and dropped a few in

As a whole it is rather a peculiar class, composed

music to the occasion. The beds are furnished with woolen
Scheeiz from shepherd Srhcyfevf. And above all, the rule of the
house is that the Nazaghzjf-0126 cannot and Scholl not be found
with his booK lined. V
When we arrived we found the baby baptized Nyntean
Hondrid Muhlenberg, able to walk a little, and so surprised was
he that he stood sucking his thumb with amazement. He did not
wish to lose his dignity, and a few days afterward advertised,
rather unwillingly, his battered-up supply of rattles, hobby-horses,
bottles, and even some milk. He toddled around the halls in a
rather obstreperous manner, and several times took a notion to
push aside his younger brother, but only weighing twenty-two
pounds, found that he could not handle at forty-pound brother.
He came near breaking a limb falling down the stairs one
He also thought he would like to try a game of foot-ball, but
was afraid to send a challenge to the Naznghzjf-ones, so they turned
the table and sent him a challenge. It took him just four weeks
to pony out the contents and accept it. Everybody played foot-
ball, and all anxiously awaited the fatal day. At last the day
cameg then the game and an honorable defeat. The Nazaghzjf-ones,
of course,-and this is no fabrication,-put up the better game.
After having their best man crippled in the first minute's play,
they kept the score tie until the last minute of the game. ' The
youngster looked pretty blue throughout the game and felt like
pouting once or twice, but luckily for him the last minute's work
kept his tears back. However, he did not fully recover that night
from his hair-breadth escape, for he hastened home to bed feeling
a little ashamed that he did not play better ball. A
One day, after this stripling had his picture taken, several of
the Naz.a,ghzfjf-ones broke into his playhouse and took his bib, or
banner, as he calls it. This trick roused his temper a little, and
he made a very earnest demand to have it returned, but-but-it
Everything went well for several months until the little boy was
evidently getting ready for a banquet. The Naughzjf-ones kept
watch of him so that he could not go away unseen. One 11ight
he thought he would bluff the Naughqjf-ones a little by simply
taking a stroll through town, but he paid rather dearly for his
trouble. He stumbled into a bucket-shower when he left and a
Hour-shower when he returned. It was necessary for him to
spend quite alittle time in cleaning up his new suit of clothes. A
week later he did go, and the Nazaiglzijf-0126.9 had their fun. They
mussed up things so badly for him that he spent several days in
replacing them again. When he remembered his motto he felt a
little more cheerful and said nothing.
These things happened on a Friday night, and on the following
Monday it snowed, so the Naug'h11jf-ones decided to go sleighing
the next night. It tickled the little fellow almost to death to see
it snowing, and he fairly danced with glee when he saw the
Nazaghijf-ones leave town. That night he was a little mischievous
and had it somewhat his own way, but he met with several eX-
periences which he will never forget. He found out, at least,
that a base-ball batiis made of wood.
The Naezghgf-aries, after all, are real good boys and deserve
praise. They have won the respect and admiration of all around
them, and as the Banner Class of Muhlenberg will in the future
bring honor to their Alma Maier.

HE Academic Department of Muhlenberg College has been so
organized by the Board of Trustees that, Whilst it is a
department ofthe college, its entire management is in the
hands of its Principal. The aim of this-department is to prepare
young men for college, for teaching, for business, as well as to
give them the education and culture necessary for the various
other pursuits of life. s
The Academic rooms are located on the first floor of the college
building, and are Well heated, lighted, and ventilated.
A moderate amount of physical apparatus has been supplied for
the more thorough instruction of Physics.
Prof. J. R. Merkel, BS., A.M., is the Principal and the in-
stuctor in Languages and Sciences, and Prof. C. J. Everett, A.B.,
is the instructor in Mathematics and English.
Certificates from the Principal admit students, who prepare in
this school, to the Freshman Class of college Without further
The increase in attendance which this school enjoys, and the
extent of territory from which it draws its patronage, show
that it fully meets the requirements of its patrons. .

E college boys have a happy life,
For naught we know of care and strife
And free are we from grief and pain,
While wonderful knowledge wedo attain.
When first we entered the Freshman year,
The dignified Senior we much did fear,
But soo11 we learned to know him Well,
The result of which the poets tell.
This college is the one we prize,
We'll lift her banner to the skies 5
Where'er we go welll bear her name,
And give to her immortal fame.
We love her walls, we love her halls,
Though oft we've met with flunksf and falls.
The road to learning well we know
Is hard, and must be traveled slow.
We honor the grave and reverend men,
Who guide us through every intricate fen
Of learning, and help us in every way
To be noble men while here we stay.
Long may our Alma Maier stand !
Her fame be known in every land !
And we, her sons, with all our might,
Will labor to keep her honor bright.,

N a publication of this character the average reader expects to
be entertained rather than instructed. The members of the
staff have remembered this and have tried to entertain as
much as possible. .
In this department, however, the Editor has aimed to instruct
rather than merely to entertain. With this object in view he has
aimed to get the very best material at his command and place it
before the reader. Consequently most of the articles have been
written by alumni of the school-men of recognized ability and
experience. I This plan has given to the department an exceptional
literary value, which the unaided efforts of the Editor could not
have given it.
The Editor takes this opportunity of acknowledging his in-
debtedness to the gentlemen who have made this department
what it is.

ING a song, ye merry juniors,
Of "ye olden times,"
VVhen our hearts were blithe and gay,
Full of sunny rhymes.
Wlieii our lives knew naught of care,
Scarce a murmuring breeze,
Save a rustle, now and then,
In among the trees.
Now we're sober, studious, too,
Real life has begun,
Deeper joys we now can feel,
Greater victories won.
Still, its work, work, work,
YVith weary heart and brain,
And read, read, read,
Then do it all o'er again.
But courage, Brothers I do not falter,
Brighter days in store, '
Joyful melodies we'll sing,
'And juniors be no more.
As our Junior labors cease,
Senior airs we'll don,
Senior triumphs will be ours,
And glories new begun.
Noble class of ,Ninety-nine
Never knew defeat !
Grander motives soon will shine
In our lives complete !
As down the stream of life we glide,
We'1l reach the bend of river 5
Our hearts will strive to choose the ri
And happy hearts will quiver.
May our lives prove true and pure,
In His service sweet,
Laboring on, and on, and on,
Till in Heaven we meet,
HE Class of ,QQ takes this opportunity of giving public ex-
pression to its great sorrow at the loss, by death, of one of
its most esteemed members.
H. Preston Weber, whom the Angel of Death visited in the
early morning of his life, was born at Lower Saucon, Northamp-
ton County, on the oth of September, 1878. His parents are
Daniel M. and Alvesta Weber. At the age of six he began
attending Franklin school, where he made rapid progress. He
was confirmed by Rev. A. B. Kophin at Saucon Church, and was
the Superintendent of Franklin Union Sunday-school up to the
time of his death. .
It was his intention to enter the sacred calling of the ministry,
and toward this end he entered Muhlenberg College as a member
of the Class of ,QQ in September, 1895. He died on the 13th day
of April, 1896. His untimely. death was mourned by all who
knew him, and only the hope of meeting their son in Heaven
sustained the parents in their sad bereavement. Time, the great
healer, has not yet erased his memory from where it is so indelibly
graven-the hearts of his classmates.
to d ZOIIQQQ SIIICIQIII.
Y DEAR YOUNG FRIEND: It has been little more than two
decades since I roamed through the classic halls of old
Muhlenberg, gathering material here and there for the
foundation of what I trust others may -pronounce a practical life.
Then your worthy President was Principal of the Academic
Department. As I look back through the many years to those
college days, I see how the foundation might have been more
carefully laid. Like all college boys, I was going to do wonder-
ful things when I became an A. B., and verily, like most of them,
I have done nothing. However, there is nothing that gives a
man a more exalted station than learning. If we were only of
the "race of the godsu we should perhaps be like young Mercury,
able to begin while yet a baby to do many wonderful things. But
inasmuch as we are not so highly favored, we must be content to
pass through a long course of training and instruction before we
are fitted for even the ordinary duties of life.
Men to be men must be educated: and education is not, as some
suppose, the mere putting of facts into the memory like specimens
in a cabinet or apples in an empty barrel-not the mere filling up
of a hollow head. Men do not now, like the fabled Minerva,
"spring full-armed from the head of love." The mind, indeed,
possesses latent powers and faculties which require development.
Education, then, is essential in expanding and enlarging the
faculties and guiding them to useful and profitable results.
This is a practical age Qas you will find it if you ever get through
collegej although there are many impractical people in it. Some
think there is nothing practical in education unless it increases
the material dollars and cents, with some personal accomplish-
ments-a few Hologies and ographiesf' the use of the brush, the
pencil, the needle, the piano, etiquette, the paraphernalia of the ball
and dining-room, with their gossip 5 a little literature, embracing
the latest novels, ability to write one's name and smatter a few
French phrases I How mistaken they are the thoroughly educated
well know. I would not encourage the idea that men are to be
mere "bookworms,,' with their brains crowded full of theories.
On the contrary, we would have good, sound, practical men 5 men
who, having made themselves familiar with the ,principles of
knowledge, exert their intellectual faculties in the application of
what they know.
All studies are useful only so far as they are turned to practical
account. What would the most extensive knowledge of history
avail if the experience of other men and times were not applied?
What would the study of chemistry avail without its application
to the arts and sciences? '
True knowledge consists in what a man can do, or accomplish,
as a result of what he knows. A rough blacksmith who hammers
out his iron into a shoe and nails it 011 the horse's foot, has more
practical knowledge and is more useful than the mere man of
theory. A j
Now, you may wonder how knowledge may be gained. I
answer, in every way. Books, from their vast fund of informa-
tion, must necessarily be a very important vehicle through which
knowledge may be obtained. -
Colleges are mainly for the purpose of forcing the mind into
habits of study.. Here books may representthe well of knowl-
edge containing theuwaters of wisdom, and the college or school
the force-pump connected therewith by means of which teachers
may, by working the lever, force some knowledge into the brains
of the pupils. Reading is the suction-pipe by means of which
anyone may drain for himself. But, after all, the best and most
practical knowledge is that obtained from men and things. SOH16
think colleges or schools are not necessary, they could be dis-
pensed with if people had a thirst for knowledge. Although we
cannot hope to be such great geniuses, yet it is encouraging to
know that Cicero studied Plato and Demosthenes, but went to no
college. He was taught by Roscius, but in no public gymnasium,
Virgil imitated the Iliad, but he caught the epic fire and gained
the majesty and grace of the hexameter from the discipline of no
Homeric institute. A
When we look back upon the great men of antiquity, we must
not associate with them the idea of colleges, schools, and sem-
inaries of learning. They were men of original genius-self-made
men of independent thoughts and aims, men who exerted their
individual efforts. We have similar cases in our own country.
Take Benjamin Franklin, for example, who began every day by
asking himself, "What good can I do to my fellow-men to-day Pi'
and closedit by asking, "What good that I might have done to
my fellow-men to-day have I left undone ?',
He who lived by such a rule could not be less than the bene-
factor of all men. Take another example, Abbot Lawrence, who
had no other advantages than those of a public school until he
was sixteen years old. Then he entered Boston, a poor lad, with
a bundle under his arm and with less than three dollars in his
pocket. He afterward arose to the highest pitch of prosperity in
wealth and influence. He built upon the adamantine basis of
probity. Beyond reproach, beyond suspicion, his life gave a lofty
meaning to the familiar lines, "An honest man is the noblest
work of God." Of him it was said by the Hon. Robert C. Win-
throp, in the language of Edmund Burke, "When an act of great
and signal humanity was to be done, and done with all the weight
and authority that belonged 'to it, this community could cast its
eyes on none but himf'
You are sent to college to obtain knowledge, yet knowledge is
a work of time. Its processes are long and arduous. Young men
talk about having finished their education when they leave college.
Alas ! poor fellows, they have not even learned enough to know
their ignorance. It may be laid down as a settled law, that so
great a work as this storing and disciplining the mind cannot be
done in a short time. The Fairy of Shakespeare may put a girdle
round the earth in forty minutes, but no man can fully develop
his intellectual faculties in forty years. I A scant stock of knowl-
edge may be picked up by travelers along the. shores of the ocean
of Time, but "a little learning is a' dangerous thingf, A littlei
philosophy makes infidels, but deep study and close research make
a Christian. Take it, then, my young friend, as good advice Qin
some respectsj to "drink deep or taste not the ,Pierian spring,"
z'. e., be convinced that while there is so much in the world of
which we are ignorant, we are always learned. It is surprising
how little we know when we think of the' wonders of Astronomy,
the myriads of minute details of historical facts, the science,'if
you will, of agriculture, the researches of geologists, the labors of
antiquarians, the wisdom of philosophers, and the deep and un-
utterable truths of religion. Surely, we must all feel like the
great Isaac Newton, that we are Upicking up 'a few pebbles on
the shore, while the great ocean of Knowledge lies unexplored
before us." It is needless to say all this cannot be gained with-
out labor and time. 1 i
Again, if my letter is not too long and you are nodding over it,
let me say that success in .life depends greatly on knowledge
applied to the great work and purposes of life. Can a man
stumble into all this, as -it were, by chance or luck? Great
difficulties are to be overcome, The great orators of the world
reached their climax by long and arduous processes. A large
proportion of eminent men in the world rose through many and
great obstacles. Curran, the great Irish orator, was so awkward
and ungainly in gesture, hasty and inarticulate in utterance, with
a voice naturally bad, that he was familiarly known by the name
of "Stuttering Jack." ' But hepersevered patiently, withstood
ridicule, bore failure with fortitude, until at length he became one
of the most effective orators of whom any age or country can

Edmund Burke said of Fox that "he came, by slow degrees, to
be the most brilliant and accomplished debater the world ever
saw.', We may say the same of Henry Clay, "the mill-boy of
the slashes." Without wealth, without patronage, without
academic discipline, without everything, it would seem, essential
to the formation of such a character, he rose by dint of unyield-
ing perseverance to be among the princes of eloquence in a land
abounding in the most gifted orators. I
It may be said of Bonnivard, I-Iuss, Melanchthon, Luther,
Wickliffe, Alfred the Great, Madame Roland, Cromwell,
Washington, and Sir John Franklin, that the roots of all their
towering greatness, so brave to the top, ran back under the soil
of years. I might speak of George Peabody, celebrated as "a
man of deeds, not of words," and quote examples of many others
to convince you that successihas its foundation and center in the

diminishing and I must close. But let me add, before the last
drop goes up to feed the blaze, that all young men are marked
from their youth by their habits. Many eyes are upon you.
Your movements are scanned. No young man of active, industri-
ous habits, of an enterprising turn of mind, with quick thought
and perception, can remain long in any community without draw-
ing attention towards him, without' creating an influence in his
behalf, even when he himself, in his entire absorption in his trade,
profession, or business, may be entirely unconscious of it. But,
on the other hand, the young man who, having secured his sheep-
skin, perhaps "by the ski11 of his teeth," plods through his daily
task-work like the tread-wheel, wood-sawing horse of old, with
no more freshness of spirit than the beast and no more aspirations
than the circular saw he drives, is not going to attract attention.
I think it was Emerson who said that it requires the same kind of
courage to manage a peanut-stand as it does to govern an' empire.
Such courage, then, to say nothing of what accompanies it,
excepting the education with which your college sends you out
into the Word, is all that is essential to make your life a success.
There are, you must know, some lawyers who plead like parrots,
some doctors who give medicine as mechanically as a trip-hammer
smites iron, some preachers who preach only from the throat,
some manufacturers whose motives are as humdrum as their own
shuttles and engines, as automatic as the valves and levers of
their engines, going through the whole lesson of life in the
humblest prose, from shade to sermon, from kitchen to church,
from making loaves to making love, from marketing to marriage.
Such people have not the courage Emerson refers to, but they are
people who dwarf down the whole wondrous majesty and mystery
of our being to a contemptible carving-mill, turning out so many
blocks, or blockheads if you will, from so much timber.
Now, the result of this language, summed up in a word, is put
thus: "What a man is tells for vastly more than what he says,"
as was said of Bios, the wise Greek, "Himself is the treasure that
a whole life has gatheredf' Successful effort must have its dis-
tinct object in view. Napoleon's successful career was owing
chiefly to the distinct view of what was to be done and the fixed
determination to do it. When he had an object to gain, whether
it was the carrying of a bridge, the taking of a city, or the sub-
duing of an empire, difficulties did not daunt him, nor the cost in
men and treasure cause him to waver in his purpose. The only
question was, "How many men will it take PM The mind of man
must be trained to meet the exigencies of great occasions. Such
training had the immortal Washington, whose name at this dis-
tance of time is charm enough to wake the burning zeal of millions
in behalf of freedom and human rights. It lives in every iitful
echo that slumbers in our hills and vales, and the free air of
America is vocal with the hallowed word. Such minds, too, had
our Webster and Clay, who swayed senates at their wills and
awed tyrants into deference and respect. Traits of character
mark distinctively the man who is on the high-road to distinction.
Promptness in the execution of business, punctuality and sobriety,
these things beget confidence. The exercise of these traits of
character and others is carrying out the requirements ofthe divine
law, as it bears upon the duties of man to his fellows, that law
whose seat is the bosom of God and whose voice is the harmony
of the world. Many things combined tend to the formation of a
bright moral character. May it be said of you, as was said of
Lawrence, that "every day of his life he was a blessing to some-
body." Remember, then, a truly great man leaves an abiding
influence upon the community in which he lived. With regard to
Lord Chatham, "everybody thought there was something liner in
the man than anything he had ever said."
While Philip Sydney was a pattern to all England of a perfect
gentleman, he was also the man that on the field of Zutphen
pushed away the cup of cold water from his own fevered and
parched lips and held it out to the dying soldier at his side.
If you, my dear young friend, aim at greatness, here, in con-
clusion, is some good counsel from letters to a young teacher:
"Have you discovered that your motives center in self? Seek
every opportunity of benefiting others, even at some personal sacri-
fice. Have you found yourself indulging in any passion? Cultivate
a feeling of gentleness and forbearance. Put yourself in the way
of meeting provocation, that you may learn by practical experience
to resist the temptation of the evil. Have you detected a love of
ease, or inaction or indolence? 'Nerve yourself to a vigorous
attack upon the propensity or habit. Have you accustomed
yourself to speak ill of others? Determine to check it when you
can, and, as a general rule, be silent when you cannot commend.
If others are unjust to you, be forgiving and generous to them.
If the cost or inconvenience be great, the discipline will be all the
better and the more useful." It is by such trials the character is
to be improved and perfected. Every man, therefore, has the
elements of success within himself, upon his own exertions, right
use of faculties, generous, noble disposition. But while success is
within the reach of all, few attain it. Now and then a man
stands aside from the crowd, labors' earnestly, steadfastly, con-
fidently, and straightway becomes famous for wisdom, intellect,
skill, greatness of some kind. The world wonders, admires,
idolizes. And yet it only illustrates what each may do if he take
hold of life With a purpose. If a man but say he will and follows
it up, there is nothing in reason he may not expect to accomplish.
There is no magic, no miracle, no secret to him who is brave in
heart and determined in spirit.
"Press on ! 'tis the soul's bright motto,-
, Press on ! 'tis the wor1d's War cry,
Press on ! man was not created
Here to languish and to die !
Let the Weakness of the past be
But to make thee strong to-day I
'Up and doing' be thy Watchword!
Press on, cast not life away."

divergence from the one grand theme-the revelation of the king-

among pictures of life from the crowded haunts of men.

man, the playing of children, the sound of the mill, the lord and
his servants, the merchantman, the courtiers in silken robes, the
sea in all its moods, with its strange creatures-these give the
sacred writings a perennial freshness and universal interest.

ous other sacred books of India and China, and the wild extrava-

HERE certainly can be no doubt that the fine arts exercise ra
prodigious influence on human culture and happiness.
Nature's best lessons are rare and often transient, but once
given to the detective eyes of art they last for centuries to cheer
and delight many who otherwise might be blind to both nature
and art. Someone has even said that great artists may be called
the exponents of civilization. They are generally educated men,
and usually associated with the rich and cultivated classes. The
Popes rewarded artists while they crushed reformers.
Negatively, then, artists are not the men who stir up opposition.
They create no revolutions even of thought. They seek only the
perfection of the outward form of things, and therefore really
contribute but little to save the world. Savonarola kindled a
greater fire in Florence than all the artists whom the Medici ever
patronized. Too often, indeed, they are abettors of vice by
making for it a mask to conceal its hideous ugliness. The struggle
of modern Paris to look. gay on the outside is a mournful illustra-
tion of this. A grimace on every lip, a worm in every heart.
Sad is it to him who sees what the electric lights conceal in the
shadows all the blacker by reason of their brilliancy 5 who detects
the wrinkled skin underneath the enameled face,
In one phase the saying is true that the best that may be
claimed for art is a fault, viz, that it always prefers looking
backwardsg to represent the past, or, at most, give only what is
acceptable of the present. It reflects whatever be the popular
feeling, right or wrong. It does not reveal new truths, but
confines itself simply to illustrating and adorning the old. Hence
its devotees are never persecuted. It has no exiledGalileo, no
martyred Socrates, dying for conscience, sake.
And yet it is equally true, in the positive aspect, that if artists can
not Wear the crown of Apostles and reformers, nevertheless their
mission is by no means to be disparaged. It is one of immense
influence. They kindle the enthusiasm of a large class of people
Who cannot be kindled by ideas. Even to the most cultured they
furnish inexhaustible themes of conversation, and make life itself
graceful and beautiful. They enrich our homes, adorn our sanc-
tuaries, and elevate our better sentiments. Nay, is it not by such
chiseled sermons as the statues of Phidias that We are made to
realize the immortality of the soul? They are a sort of final
revelation of man's idealism or ultimate capacity of beauty of
form and mind.
As Mr. Jarves puts it, if man were solely a being of abstract
reason, then the exercise of thought would be sufiicient for his
happiness. But he has also heart and imagination which demand
gratification. A man Without taste is a mental cripple. His
aesthetic faculty being unformed, he is virtually deaf and blind to
the most rehned pleasures of life, Science can tell us of what
salts a tear is made, but it can give us no insight into its cause as
Practically, then, art is the ornamental side of life, as science is
the utilitarian. Whatexfer is produced'by man, off which beauty
is the main feature and enjoyment the chief aim, has its origin in
the Vartidea, whereas things of simple use are the fruit of the
other faculty. Without undertaking to define terms more pre-
cisely We may generalize art as being the love of the soul in the
sense that Science is its Law. Each is requisite to the proper
action of the other, as its countervveight or balance. Art adorns
science, and science is the helpmeet of art. Apart the latter is
mystic and erratic, Whilst the former is cold and hard.
Fullness of Life.

OW empty many lives are ! How full of useful activity others I
What is the difference between the positive and the negative
life? For we must at once admit that many men, as far as
ourilimited view can reach, are mere ciphers, non-producers, cum-
berers of the earth, unworthy to be compared with those who
labor and strive for self-culture and the welfare of their fellow-men
-to say. nothing of the highest of all ends, the glory of God-who
thus by their character and their example are far better fitted to
live on in the hearts of men throughout all following time.
The life that means something, that does something, that is
something, is the life that tells. Men are prone to forget that
they have a life to live, not merely a living to make. They may
be seeking only the gold of the Klondike or their quest may be
for those richer treasures of wisdom "where price is above rubies. U
All of us are men in the making, characters in process of building,
mathematical sums whose additions and subtractions are opera-
tions in which we are daily engaged. What will be the final
result? A human fraction or a moral integer? Let us inquire
what are some of the elements that enter into the formation of a
rich, complete life. Not abstract virtue but virtue translated into
words and deeds is what we would emphasize. We do not need
more theory but more practice.
Shall we suggest the value of careful reading? Nothing can
be added to what Lord Baconiso admirably says about books. He
bids us exercise our powers of discrimination, and by the way in
which we read make our reading contribute to our general culture
as well as to our store of information on a particular subject. A
book is not to be read simply because it is new and has become
fashionable, nor to be cast aside because it is old and perhaps
somewhat quaint in style. Someone tells us never to read a book
until it is at least one year old, a very safe rule to follow when we
remember how the fad of to-day must' give way to what will accord
with the popular caprice of to-morrow. VVe do well to satisfy our
desires again and again where alone they can truly be satished,
at classic fountains, for Shakespeare and Milton and the Book of
books never fail to refresh and revive the countless souls that drink
of their life-giving streams. I
What power the student of a few great books may wield is well
stated in the warning, "Beware of the man of one book." But
besides a thorough knowledge of the fewigreat books that live
forever, a general familiarity with books and the great world of
letters is eminently desirable. Noting the contents of library al-
coves and turning the pages of books we shall never have the time
nor, perhaps, the desire to read, are exercises more helpful than
we often think. Who can tell of the influences that books exert,
or estimate the part they play in shaping human character?
The feeling is general that conversation is a lost art, yet by the
expenditure of time and effort we may, to some extent at least,
regain this glorious gift of God. VVe all know how much quiet,
elegant conversation, talk of men and books and the real business
of life--not the mere details of the shop, but those larger interests
which make all of human kind akin-enriches and sweetens and
glorifies daily life. It "makes a ready man," a man prepared for
the pulpit, the bench, or the senate because he has held inter-
course with human hearts and felt the thrill of sympathy with his
brothers in their various avocations quicken all his powers of ser-
vice and of sacrifice for his own day and generation. The human
voice makes the sweetest music and utters the divinest poetry, and
the words to which it gives expression furnish us with a reliable
index of the character. The fairy tale is ever repeating itself,
and as we pass on our way pearls or toads are constantly falling
from our lips. T
Perhaps the supreme need in modern education is genuine old-
fashioned habits of study on the part of our youth. It sometimes
seems as if we had everything but this in our schools. Study means
close attention to the subject in hand, its orderly. development,
the comparison of truth with truth the perception of relations
and the gathering of isolated items of knowledge into a harmo
nious whole The thoughtful student gathers wisdom from his
meant counsels of those whose mistakes and failures he would
avoid but in whose examples he may find much to emulate H
aims high in fact to nothing short of perfection because he h s
learned that "not failure but low aim is crime." There is to-day
too much a smattering of facts, too little the endeavor thoroughly
to grasp and appropriate the principles that lie beneath all history
andall philosophy. We fail to "read, mark, learn, and inwardly
digest" the matter daily brought to our attention and to apply to
our mental pursuits the common sense we are accustomed to exer-
cise in the most ordinary affairs of the physical life.
While it is a good thing to know "something of everything," as
well as to know "everything of somethingf' we dare not carry
this rule to an extreme. Above all, let us seek to avoid the fatal
mistake so many make who lament what they do not know and
fail to use the little knowledge they may already have as their
working capital for the acquisition of greater intellectual wealth.
Could we but once " see ourselves as others see us," what a reve-
lation of ignorance and conceit that would be 1 We either over-
estimate or rate too low our qualifications, and so often pass by
that very work in which by nature and by training we are best
fitted to engage. Nor is the Uriah Heep type of men uncommon.
Because the field of knowledge is so vast and we can at best fill
but a small place therein, we may be tempted to assume a false
modesty and to parade our own inefficiency and unworthiness
instead of making the real effort to live and act rather than simply
vegetate. How refreshing the frank confessions of ignorance and
incapacity that Alfieri, the Italian tragic poet, makes in his charm-
ing autobiography! Self-examination is not usually a pleasant
task, but its lessons are very salutary and may lead us to the right
choice of a life-work. I
What is the true estimate of the body? Is it the prison-house
own experiences and observations as well as from the well-
' , ' . 'e
S , 1 - 3
of the soul? Or is it, rather, as St. Paul' tells us, the temple of
the Holy Ghost? This is not a beautiful poetic conception, but
the statement of a truth which human experience of divine grace
has proved and never found wanting for ages past. If we leave
the house of our soul "empty, swept, and garnished," the evil
spirit will return with seven spirits more wicked than himself. If
we fill it with God, whom we know in nature and especially in
the revelation of His grace, we shall enjoy that rich, full life
which is known only to those whose hope is anchored on the
Rock of Ages. How, then, may the life find its highest expres-
sion ? Wliat differentiates the complete from the incomplete life?
Herbert Spencer tells us that men are great not as kings, not as
statesmen, nor as soldiers, but as the servants of their fellow-men.
And yet he but echoes the deeply signiiicant words of the Master
who, speaking "as never man spake," bade him that would be
great among them be their minister, and whosoever would be
chief as one that served after His own blessed example. Service,
then, not selfishness, is the iinal answer to the perplexity and
doubt and darkness of the human heart vainly groping after truth
until it rests in the truth of God, and like mercy, which is one of
its choicest fruits, it blesses the giver equally with the recipient.
Faith, hope, love,--faith in the Christ of God, love that manifests
itself by service, and hope in a glorious future,-these are the
graces that make the perfect man.
Let us, then, cease building castles in the air and spending our
time in idle dreaming. We begin to live only when we cease to
live to ourselves and to gaze mournfully on the ruins of the past.
Then do we learn even from disappointments and failures more
nobly to build the structure of to-day's life.
"Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul I
As the swift seasons roll !
Leave thy low-vaulted past I
Let each, new temple, nobler than the last,
Shut thee from Heaven with a dome more vast,
Till thou at length art free,
Leavingithine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea. "
'LL tell you a tale of a college class,
I think 'twas ninety-nine.
At first it seemed to look green as grass,
But now ,tis very line.
Twas but a dream, yet true, my lass,
For 'twas after eleven g
And in that vision I saw that class
I think some thirty-seven.
They left their rooms on a wintry night,
These Freshies so bright and gay,
For a sleighride when the moon shone bright,-
Some floundered by the away.
When home they came their beds were gone,
I cannot say whereto g
So all night long they had to moan,
Not taking off a shoe.
They chewed " Little Latin " spit out " Less Greek
With now and then a Hunk,
But, then, in the German class they'd speak,
For there they all had spunk.
But at last it was " Herodotusf'
Their talent gave a show.,

EVER before in the history of the world was there known to
be such an abundance of books. Nearly every one who
fancies he knows something, thinks it best to be unselhsh
and let the world know it also. He therefore writes a book. The
eighth wonder of the world is the printing-press, and every year it
sends out such a flood of books that we must fear that "the world
will not be able to contain those which should noi have been writ-
tenf' Thousands upon thousands are leaving the press every year.
In order to get some idea of the vast number of books the world has
treasured, let us go to Europe-for it is evident we dare not stay
in our own country-and place ourselves in the presence of half a
dozen of its greatest libraries. We pass by those libraries that
have less than 6oo,ooo volumes and go to the imperial library of
Vienna, which has that number, thence to Berlin with its 7oo,ooo
volumes, thence to Munich with its 9oo,ooo volumes, thence to
St, Petersburg with its 1,1oo,ooo volumes, thence to London With
its r,2oo,ooo volumes. From London we pass to Paris with its
2,ooo,ooo volumes, and because we can go no higher we stop here
and try to realize what a library with 2,ooo,ooo volumes means.
T This library has about six miles of shelving, averaging eight
feet high. Supposing that there are six rows of books along the
whole line of six miles shelving, we have one row of books stretch-
ing over-a distance of thirty-six miles. Nor is this all. Along'
side of this vast stream of books which is constantly pouring in'E0
the libraries of the world, we must place that immense stream Of
floating literature in the shape of magazines, newspapers, etc.,
down to that insigniiicant little pamphlet whieh costs onlv ten
cents or as we prefer to say a dime We have monthly papers
semimonthlies weeklies semiweeklies and last of all dailies
But let us see what all this has to do with our subject
There is an idea prevalent that in order to be intelligent and
keep up with the times one must not only be at home with the
old well established literature of bygone days but also with all
the untried fashionable literature of our own times A little sober
reflection will tell us that such a thing is inpossihle and if it were
possible it would not at all be desirable If to keep abieast of the
times means that we must read every book not decidedly bad,
then it is best to be behind the times. Such a course might
develop literary quacks--of which we have too many at the present
day-but not thorough, accurate, well-trained scholars. ,It is not
reading many books that makes us wise, but reading a few choice
books and reading them well. In this great age of books we need
to learn wisdom from the bee and select only that which is sweet
and good. Of all the dangers to sound scholarship to be most
avoided is that of falling in with the modern notion that we must
know a little of everything before we can know anything. One
great mistake, then, which every one should avoid is to suppose
that everything that is written must be read.
It is evident, if we wish to be intelligent readers we must begin
to subtract somewhere from the huge pile of the worldts libraries.
We will begin by taking from it that large amount of text-books,
reference books, and books' to be studiedirather than read, also
books written in foreign tongues, and finally that immense pile of
bad books which should never have been written. Now look at
the remainder. 'What have we left? A library of some thousand
volumes of good, wholesome, readable literature. This small
library may now be divided, according to Francis Bacon, into three
main divisions: 1. Books fo be !as!eo',- 2. Books Zo be swallowed,-
3. Books fo be chewed amz' dzlgesfod. If reading is to do us any
good it must take place chiefly within this small circle of a few

But when we look at the vast majority of readers and see in
what miserable, wretched stuff they take delight, we begin to feel
that something is woefully out of joint somewhere. Thousands
upon thousands of young people in our land do not, in their course
of reading, get beyond the dime novel and books of adventure.
Fully seven-eighths, of our readers seldom come near the circle
of choice books to which I have narrowed down the world's
library, they seldom read books that should be tasted, much less
books that might be swallowed, and never such books as ought to
be chewed and digested and made their companions for lite.
Whai is ilze Vasu!! ? We judge men by the company they keep,
and rightly so, for no one will keep company with that which he
does not love, and that which he loves will mould his character.
Thisis true both ways. The surest proof that a man is a child of
God is that he loves the Bible, and that he is a child of the devil
is that he loves the devil's works which make their appearance in
the shape of bad books..
Our bad literature is the slippery pathway that leads direct to
the saloon, the prison, the gallows, and down to the mouth of hell.
It has more to do with crime than anything else. Had I power
over the printing-press I would hold the match under three-fourths
of the books it lets loose upon the world. There is, therefore, no
question that concerns our schools and colleges more than to know
by what possible means this great evil may be counteracted. Some
believe in limiting the freedom of the press. Law never could
and never can reform the world. In healing one sore spot it will
only create another. 'If a man can get so far as to live on husks
it is better to let him eat th.em and perhaps he will sicken of them
some day. Q
Gthers believe in not reading at all. Since some books are bad,
it is better to read none. Our forefathers got along without them.
Yes, so do the Indians, so do the Negroes of the South, so have
all barbarous nations, but not so does civilized man with an intel-
lect, a heart, and a soul that must be fed. What is nobler than
a good book ! And what a wonderful thing a book is I By 1116511115
of a book I can cross the barriers of time and hold converse with
a friend who though long ago dead yet speaks, W'e do not remedy
the evil by turning our backs on books. The only way to overcome
the evil is to cultivate in some way the tastes of our readers, create
a love and admiration for the beautiful, the true, and the good.
The tendency of our natures is downward, not upward, whether
in respect to spiritual, moral, or intellectual parts, and if we would
riseiabove the level of the savage, some power from without must
be applied to lift us up, or at least some power within our nature
must be set in motion to raise us as far as it is possible. We can
not disclaim relationship with the savage, for he is blood of our
blood and Hesh of our flesh, but wherein we can and do profess to
disown him is that he is content to remain in the state of nature in
which he was born. Take the savage to an art gallery, show him
the most beautiful painting, and he will tell you that his gorgeous
costume, bedaubed with gaudy colors, is far more beautiful,
because he has no sense of symmetry, harmony, or proportion.
Or play to him one of the masterpieces of Beethoven, and he will
tell you that the moaning of the wind through the forest, and the
noises of wild beasts, are music more pleasant to his ear. Now,
this lack of taste, so manifest in the savage, is by no means con-
fined to him. We find traces of it in multitudes of his more
civilized neighbors. Tasie is ea'zacaz'z'07z. We need to be taught
what is beautiful and true as much as that which is right. As it
is with painting and music, so it is with literature. The very
books which most charm and delight our untutored tastes are the
most unfit to be read. That which is base and untrue will com-
mend itself 'sooner to our corrupt nature than the finest painting
or music that ever was produced by the genius. What youth, if
left to himself, would not rather read a book of thrilling adven-
tures than Dickens's History of England, even if the former be false
and the latter true? The appearance of the books in most of our
public libraries bears testimony to what I have just said, while
those books whose contents bear testimony to the author's fitness
to guide and control the thinking of men lie 'idle on the shelves.
The cry of the age is for something brilliant and showy. We
must have brilliant talkers, teachers, preachers, and books, and
we have them in abundance--they are brilliant, but brilliant like
a rotten log which shines because it is rotten. 'Nor let anyone
suppose that taste need not be cultivated in the case of those who
are virtuous and Christian. We are told that Satan can quote
Scripture. Nowhere is it done more effectually than in books, and
in books with beautiful titles. Things have come to such a pass
that there is alrnost as much poison in our Sunday-school religious
literature as outside of it. I have seen Sunday-school libraries in
which three-fourths of the books were more lit to be burned than
to be placed into the hands of an innocent child. The crying
need of our times is the cultivation of the taste, whereby we per-
ceive the difference between the deformed and the beautiful, the
evil and the good. Let this be discussed under three heads: How,
when, and where ? i
Firsi. How is a taste for good reading to be cultivated? I.
By the judicious selection of a good author, or, in other words,
by placing into the hands of the young reader a book adapted to
his capacity and the bent of his mind. 2. By keeping the young
reader in the 'company of a good author long enough to enable him
to appreciate the author. The best friends we ever have are those
who improve by acquaintance. The unskilled reader will often
take a book, hastily skim over a few pages, and wonder why
others have gone into ecstacies over it. He casts it aside, not
knowing that the deficiency lies within himself. Providence has
arranged all things wisely. You do not find pure gold scattered
about on the streets and in the fields, if men are hungry for it they
must go to California or the Klondike and dig for it. So it is with
the merits of any author, if you would find them you must dig for
them. Weldo not admire good men by looking at them, but by
studying them and finding out who and what they are.
Second. When ought this taste to be cultivated ? I will answer
this question by asking another. When does the farmer sow his
seed P Does he wait till the field is rank with weeds P No And
so the way in which to cultivate a taste for good reading IS before
the untutored mind has formed a taste for the bad
Thzm' Wliere 15 this taste to be cultivated ? 1 In the family
Many a mother has created a taste for history by reading the Bible
the fountain head of history and a taste for poetry by reading the
hymns of the church The parent who knows what books to
place into the hands of his children is building wiser than he
knows for after he 1S dead and gone he may know that if good
books whether intellectual moral or religious have been their
companions 1n youth, they will not be likely to suffer from bad
companionship later. 2. In the school. I would not urge this
point were it not for the fact that little attention is paid in our
schools and colleges to direct and encourage the student to a
proper course of reading. As a rule he is left to cultivate his own
taste, and if he succeeds in doing this aright it must be noted as
an exception, not the rule. '
Before I close there is an in1portant point to which I desire to
call attention. What has taste to do with character? It has very
fitly been called man's intellectual conscience. The man who has
it can not stoop to anything that is vulgar and base in literature.
It is linked inseparably with that which is pure, and it will shrink
instinctively from anything which has a tendency to defile. It will
drive man to seek the society of only pure and exalted minds.

E calm in arguing : for fierceness makes
Error a fault, and truth diseourtesy.
Why should I feel another man's mistakes
More than his sieknesses or poverty?
Tn love I should g but anger is not love,
Nor Wisdom neither 3 therefore gently move.
Calmness is great advantage : He that lets
Another ehafe, may Warm him at his fire,
Mark all his wand'rings, and enjoy his frets,
As eunnin g feneers suffer heat to tire.
Truth dwells not in the clouds 3 the bovv that's there
Doth often aim at, never hit, the sphere."-fufmfbevff

activity, be it mechanical, inventorial, scientific, or literary,
for a literary society to hold its own simply Would, in contrast
with the growing World about us, seem to be retrograding.
Euterpea, ever true to her motto, "Watch and Advance,"
gives evidence of long strides in advancement on every hand
Greater interest is manifested in the Weekly meetings than ever
before. No duty is too arduous and no sacrifice is too great for
her members to perform.
Euterpea is a chartered body, and having been founded in the
same year as the institution of which it has been one of the
greatest educational auxiliaries, is, therefore, identical with it
in age. t
Euterpea has enrolled the talented members of the present
Freshman Class. She ever prizes quality, as is evidenced by the
fact that she carried avvay all the honors at the last Commence-
ment. Gf the Euterpean members of last yearts class F. K. Fretz
tool: first honor, W. M. Kopenhaver second honor, and C. J.
Everett third honor. Ira O. Nothstein took the Butler Analogy
prize, W. E. Steckel, '98, Won the junior Oratorical prize, and
I. O. Henry, ,QQ, the Eliza Botanical prize.
The already large collection of minerals and relics in the cabinet
has recently been augmented by a valuable acquisition.
A large number of books has been added lately to the ever-
growing library. Especially is this true of scientific Works since
the Department of Science has been added to the curriculum of
s age of wonderful progress in everv line of human
In taking a retrospect, Euterpea has ample reason to be proud.
May she ever, by her deeds, do honor to herself and do nothing
that will tarnish her fair name. God speed Euterpea I

Bistorv of Sopbronian Literary Society.
HE foundation of Sophronia was laid in the year 1867. It
started with a membership of thirty-five, this number
including many from the Academic Department. Luther
A. Swope, now a teacher in Gambier, Ghio, was the first presi-
dent. Since then the society has made wonderful strides in
advancement: Striving for a great end, as the motto, " The end
crowns the work," suggests, was always in the mind of its
members. A library was soon started, and the number of books
has reached twenty-four hundred. It contains all the latest
works on fiction, history, biography, and theology. In the refer-
ence library are found encyclopedias and commentaries by the
best authorsg Each member of the society has a key to this
department. The society meetings are held every Wednesday at
1.30 P.M. At these meetings special stress is laid on orations,
essays, and impromptu speeches. Perseverance and application
are virtues not unknown to the young orators of Sophronia.
This opportunity is regarded as a treasure too rich to be wasted,
and therefore every little shred is carefully used. True it is that
the society has not always had such a standing as at present, but
its early members, amid toil and strife, erected a strong fortress
which its present members are holding with pride and honor.
Our members number fifty-five, twenty-three of which are Fresh-
men. We do not ask, for the quantity of men, but the quality.
Our hall is, indeed, an honor to Sophronia as well as to the
college. On our walls are hung the pictures of our first honor
men. Sophronia is well represented in the professions of teach-
ing, law, theology, and medicine. It has always held its own in
the past, and we scan the future with hopeful eyes.

H Sopbomorfs Retrospect.
HO was it filled my youthful dreams,
Of beautyls wild, bewildering beam
In place of Greek or Latin themes?
NVhat girl not yet out of her 'teens,
While speaking of our future e'ens,
Had visions of celestial scenes?
V My Blanche
In class-room and in college hall,
Who was it took my time and all
My thoughts, and held. me as a thrall?
What youthful dreams of high renown,
of wearing soon a parson's gown,
I used to dream in Allentown, -
. V With Blanche
At last came graduation day,
Which made me sad instead of gay, I U
With thoughts of being soon far away
I From Blanche
At last to Philadelphia great
I went, and every day Ild wait
For a sweet letter, due at eight,
But when school days were o'er at last,
And all else to the winds was cast,
I made the parson tie me fast
And now, who has become my boss,
And gives her pretty head a toss
While saying I must obey her laws?

OM THE ARIEL, CLASS OF ,94', UNIVERSITY OF
GY Cupid called, the other day, and said,
"We hate so much each other, you and I,
That it Were better one of us were dead.
Come, therefore, and a duel let us try,
You may pick out Whatever arms you choose,
But I this little bow of mine shall use."
So, fearing half the wily little man,
And half in scorn to iight a thing so frail,
His challenge I accepted, and began
To clothe myself in arms that might not fail,
Buckling about me, for a sure defense,
The proven armor of indifference.
But e'er my preparations quite Were Whole,
It chanced that pretty Hattie passed that Wa5
Behind her up the little traitor stole
And pierced me to the heart. Ah, Well-a-day'
Besides, the Worst of it is this : that I,
Although 1,111 conquered quite, yet do not die

6' Q 3 '
OW, then, to our friends so dear,
Whose names upon these pages may be found
We bid you a right good cheer,
But, then, We'1l try to hit you all around.
So if you feel the yoke
And think perhaps We're treating you unfair,
Please take it as a joke
For, be assured, that We in no wise care.
Howe'er, for friendship's sake
VVe,1l try to be aseasy as We can,
But every one who is a fake
VVill surely not be treated as a rnan.
Now, then, prepare to meet thy fate,
May it be e'er so long,
No explanations will be made,
To you nor anyone.
PYOCQQMIIQS of mllNQllbQl'Q QOIIQQQ dllfillg
Had a banquet,
Up at Reading.
Do their duty,
Have some fun and
Take some booty.
In the morning.
What a sight out
On the chestnut I
Now for "Fight out."
Take a sleighride,
And have gladness
By the Wayside.
Till the Seniors-
Big old Hsmartiesu-
To break doors in,
Steal the bedding
Of the Freshmen.
Gives one little ,
Pain in stomach,
At the thought of
Such big men CPD
With Wise faces
Studying Ethics I
Yet teach others
To do mischief
To their brothers.
But both classes,
And those Smarties,-
Could not conquer

HERE is a class that has three Johns,
And these three johns are Johnniesg
Johnny Bender is the nanie of one,
Kopp, Koch, they are the others.
Now these three johns sat in a row,
In Georgie,s call in Latin,
Kopp used the horse, Koch used the pony
And Be11der sat a-laughing.
Now these three Johns to Bickel's Went,
Whenever they saw Ht,
johnny Bender took a glass of beer,
And John Kopp took a fit.
Now, these three boys did lead the class,
Bender was best in Latin,
Kopp was not very good in Greek,
Koch lead in all the scrapping.
One day the class to Lindy's Went,
To have their pictures taken,
johnny Bender would not go on at all,
Then John Kopp was forsaken.

There was a Professor of great renown,
Who moved his family to Allentowng
He made the students go on a spree,
By asking them questions in Chemistry.

There was another Professor of great renow
Who resided a long time ill Allentovvng
He made the students drink barrels of rod
By cracking jokes about his dog.

I. i ..
N a beautiful day last june,
The Fem. Sems. took a ride,
At a time when therewas no moon,
And they certainly did look a fright.
A beautiful day had they,
And they all seemed very gay,
Because it was a rare thing
For them their tongues to swing.
The Wagon was drawn by jacks,
Of Very choice and beautiful stock,
They kicked up their heels and away they flew
And gave the Fern. Sems. a shock. ,
Now, the Fern. Sems. Were fair,
But those jacks Were there,
And it was such a beautiful sight,
To see them go in broad daylight.
Oh, pity the Fein. Sems.,
Oh, pity the jacks,
Oh, pity the driver U -
Who brought them back.

HEN the Work connected with the printing of this book Was
nearing its conclusion, the students and Faculty of Muhlen-
berg College Were startled by the announcement that one
of her most promising students, Mr. Calvin D. Seaman, was
stricken by the hand of death at his home in Frackville. Mr.
Seaman, during his connection with the college, made many
friends, and his loss is sincerely mourned.
l Owing to the fact that allarge part ofthe book was printed, no
notice of Mr. Seaman's death could be inserted in any previous
part of it. The CIARLA Staff takes this opportunity of tendering
its sincerest sympathy to the bereaved qfamily. '

IT IS THE BEST FOR TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS, BECAUSE 2
Words are easily found. Pronunciation is easily ascertained. Meanings are easily l
learned. The growth of words easily traced, and because excellence of quality
rather than superiluity of quantity characterizes its every department. Itls 1
thoroughly reliable. 9
The Pennsylvania School journa1 says :-The International Webster is a.
treasure house of universal knowledge to which all the world, in all its ages, has made
Q O contribution, and any one of us may have it at his elbow. Of its half hundred special-
ties, each of value and importance, the most attractive to us is its etymology, an un-
failing source of interest and eng oyment, otten of surprise and wonder.-OCTOBER, 1896.
