J' Q29 199
IME produces many changes. Ruthlessly, as it were, it moves forward in its
triumphant course, leaving in its wake vast and potent forces that materially
alter the existing order of things. These changes are not limited to
particular spheres of existence and activity, but the evidence of their presence is
noted everywhere. This must necessarily always be the case in all things. The
baneful consequences resulting from a condition of things in which change is not
found as a factor, may be realized in a measure by imagining everything at a
standstill, and the marvelous and brilliant light of art, literature, science and
discovery reduced to darkness.
Perhaps nowhere is change so clearly manifested as in a college and its
surroundings. The very atmosphere and spirit of an institution of this nature are
pregnant with forces that make changes possible. Herein lies our apology, if
there be need of one, of sending forth the CIARLA upon the vast sea of college
Of each year's Board there is demanded a CIARLA more nearly complete and
more pleasing to the eye than any of its predecessors. We have endeavored
constantly to keep this in view, and have accordingly introduced some changes in
the book intended to produce this effect.
,Great care has been exercised in illustrating tl1e work, so that quality and
quantity alike be introduced. The artistic ability of the class is clearly shown by
the excellent work herein displayed.
The book, however, is not our ideal. After our thoughts and ideas have been
embodied in cold metal, and we again behold the same after a lapse of time, we
often observe defects and room for improvement. This we feel to be the case in
the present instance. Yet we trust that our efforts may be productive of some
beneiit and pleasure to our fellowstudents and their friends, and to our Alma
fllafer and her welfare. Witli what measure of success we have performed our
duties, we leave to the reader to decide.

History of 1902.
N presenting this, our last history, we feel keenly that the record of our Class is
about to be sealed. Four years have we walked together under the guidance
of our Alma fllrzfcif, now content, now restless under the restraint she imposed.
In this time we have learned to know each other as only classmates do. During
our course we have welcomed new faces to our midst, on the other hand, we have
felt the sorrow of parting. Some have left us to take up other work. The spirit
of one, who walked with us well nigh to the end, "has slipped its cable in the
harbor of eternal rest." I-Qegzdesmf in pare.
Let us briefly review our course. Soon after entering college we found tour-
selves drawn into circles of activity not specified in the curriculum. The relations
of students to their college and to each other impose duties that multiply to each
individual as he grows in experience. Duties that it is a pleasure to perform,
because, to a great extent, they grow out of inter-class relations, and where is the
man' that has not the welfare of his Class at heart? Not in the Class of " Nineteen
'Two" as our minutes will testify. We, as a Class, have had a position to sustain,
which often called for the setting aside of individual opinion, and in no instance
has the welfare of our Class been disregarded.
In her early days, Nineteen Hundred and Two earned a reputation for being
up to all kinds of mischief, but she has risen through all that to a position that
commands respect. Vllhether viewed in class-work, on the rostrum, socially, or
from the standpoint of athletics, she has earnestly tried, and, we hope, succeeded
in fulnlling her duty to Muhlenberg and her sister Classes.
To the graduate, when he enters upon the duties of his calling, college life
soon becomes a mere remembrance. But what are the impressions retained?
Will he, after a few years, be able to recall the grades, the orations, and the
valedictory? We may safely say, No. W'l1at, then, remains with him? Ask
hirn about the scores, touchdowns, rushes, pranks, contests, and the like, and his
eyes will light up with a far-away look, as he again nibbles the sweets of his
college career. About those cluster memories ever fresh, standing out like oases
in a desert. Then rejoice, ye members of "Nineteen 'Two", for here we are
rich l From play to banquet, many are the ties that in future years will bind us
like chains of steel to dear old Muhlenberg.
Now that our course is well-nigh hnished, we begin to realize whence comes
that proverbial dignity of the Senior. It is meet that we should be grave. Soon
we must part, and we know not whether those of us who are left will ever have the
pleasure of meeting again to revive the traditions of our Class.
" To meet, to know, to love-and then to part
Is the sad tale of many a human heart."
J Q9 Q9
QTUNE:-" There'l1 Be a Hot Time in the Old Town To-nigl-nt."j
N the Fall of 'ninety-eight there came to Muhlenberg a Class
W'hich in excellence and valor all the others did surpass 3
And its members they were corkers all, for they would take no sass,
And the others soon respected them, or promptly Went to grass.
CHORUS :-H When you see the Orange and the Blue,
Step aside and quickly let us through,
For we are members of the Class of Nineteen 'Two
And we are hot stuff and that is no lie ll :
just as soon as we started in the dear and classic hall,
lfVe joined hands and stood united just as brothers, one and all g
And we pledged ourselves to bear eacl1 other's troubles, great and small,
VVhen there came from one among our midst a true and needy Call.-CHO.
But it was not long before the Profs. our ranks began to scan,
And their eagle eyes soon found some fault with here and there a man 3
But we showed them that their brilliant minds our greatness could not span
And we challenge any one to find our equal if he can.-CHO.
Now as through the classic halls of dear old Muhlenberg we go,
When we speak of Nineteen 'Two our cheeks with pride shall ever glow g
For she is the pride of Allentown, as all the people know,
And we mean just what we're saj ing, or we would not tell you so.-CHO.

History of 1903.
ISTORY, as we usually understand that term, is a mere compilation of
events, but it becomes more valuable history if it relates the causes and
' effects of those events Qto believe our superiorsj. So this history will pass
over all mere events CDuck Farm feasts and such thingsj and take up the causes
and effects of observed events, trying to show what will result from the past.
What place will the Class take in history? NVhat will become of its members?
The first member of this dignified organization Calphabetically, of coursej is
Barndt. Need we hesitate to predict a bright future for a man with such a past
history? Such a model ofintegrity, truthfulness and bravery on the field of base-
ball, may well be compared to his fellow Countryman, of whom it was said, he was
" first in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen." The future
only can reveal what fate intends to make of this man.
Next in order, we arrive at a man old enough to " raise them." His was an
appendage suited to a man, who, like a hero in the midst of his cowering class-
mates, did not flinch from hurling through the window the lighted cannon. Yea,
verily, what did Napoleon do like this? NVar, only war, can truly test his
What shall we say of quiet Frank C. ? He has run a newspaper in his days.
Perhaps the future will find him in the office of a metropolitan daily, chastising
tardy reporters as he hustles delayed work now. Ask him where those little
epistles come from to see the shade of his complexion and catch a glimpse
of his future.
Next in order, after Esterly and Geisinger, would be Jaxheimer, but the
trolley is late again. His car may pull in before this closes.
Hello Paul ! That's what we hear most frequently from our " imager' r1iz'ae,'l
familiarly known as " 'Squiref' His fondness for reciting German will bear
good fruits, we venture to predict.
Next we come to our rough-rider. Of course "Teddy" rides a horse.
Everybody knows it. He is a fine horseman and no Chair in the Classics will he
too good for him if he wants it.
Kurtz isn't as short as you might suppose. Start him talking. He may put
his talent to use in the pulpit.
" Hello Lew!" That's Eddie's favorite yell, He is preparing to grace
Ilere looms up the slender form of E1naus's greatest politician. O thou in
the palm of whose hand are concealed the destinies of nations I
Homer never sang of sage more keen, wit more sharp, or counsellor more
Wise than is our famous " Parson."
Rightly dubbed an egotist by those Who ought to know, the next member
boldly scorns to omit himself.
Oh, Shakespeare, Where art thou?
Dead, yet doth thy fame pursue thee I
A gentleman of no mean ability is our next member. In the Words of the
chewing-gum announcement, "A great future is in store for you." .
Quiet usually, angered sometimes, is Schlotter. He will make his mark
Proud of the race of his father, an athlete by instinct and a native of Berks
County by birth, is our next member. The future may und him on the Warpath.
Among the rest of this justly celebrated class you may find scientists, artists,
professional men and other men, all remarkable, but which we are compelled to
slight for brevityls sake.
All of them are worthy of note and history will take them into account
P. S. The reason for this history appearing in English, at the last moment,
is that the author previously vainly attempted to write it in Latin, with apologies
to that language.

GAIN the Sophomores appear,
With wisdom and with knowledge clear
To state exactly what they know,
XVithout a fuss or any show. V
The Freshman year ended quite well
With few exceptions we might tell.
" Enlisted for the VVar," we played,
Before an audience learned and great.
Our play, indeed, made quite a hit
That some were thrown into a fit g
But none of dear old 1904,
A few who trod the path before.
With glee to our homes we fled,
Our minds exceedingly well-fed.
Vacation surely passed so quick
That few, of course, seemed somewhat sick.
September 5th again we came,
To show our face and tell our name g
A few, however, sadly missed :
New faces then filled up the list.
That day the Profs. assigned our task,
And everyone forgot the past g
All resolved for a good result,
And vowed no " Poniesw we'll consult.
The first few days were quietly spent,
And every one felt quite content,
W'hen lo ! indeed the time arrived
To boast our strength with little pride.
In vain the milky Freshmen fought
To pass the " blockade " we had wrouffht '
Resolved to reach the upper step,
But were indeed somewhat misled.
A little trick they had contrivel
To throw our men into a fright g
But lViefI'e7', Sfznfzkwefffr and Ran?
Passed swiftly over our crowd.
So thus you see, Oh ! Freshies dear,
We blocked the trick without a fear g
Next time we meet be not too sly,
Or some of you will surely Hy.
Not satisied with this defeat,
We met them on the foot-ball field,
Where men had gathered far and wide
To see the end of this great iight.
An incident, not yet explained,
For which no one is really blamed,
Gave the Freshies a chance to score,
Oh my! how highly did they soar.
No length of time the Freshmen roared
VVhen we with joy our first goal scored.
They gathered five with joy and glee,
But we, alas I had twenty-three.
Our banner too they tried to snatch,
However were no equal match 5
To take a S0,z5h011zm'z'c prize
Must be a Class of larger size.
Thus time indeed passed slowly by,
W'hen some were watching with an eye
To discover when we would flee
To enjoy our banquet with glee.
XVell surely we don't like to say
That one morning some felt not gay,
When it was rumored up and down
That the Sophs left for the " Quakers' Town
Away we went without delay,
Not even a Freshman in our way.
How quiet the classic halls appeared
In which our lives thus far were reared.
Quietness prevailed all around,
Some looked as if they had been drowned g
Until mother earth opened her pores
And send a flood with mighty roars.
Our journey homeward then was made,
And all resumed their proper grade g
Labored hard in a grand old style
At problems fTrig.l as wide as the Nile.
Our end has come 3 we bid adieu g
" flif7LZ'5lL67'S " and " Dozflofiv " but few,
" Specials," and 'tLzzzagIc'1's " who can roar,
Cbmposifzze of r9o4.

F all the boys who went before
Through any classic hall,
There were not at any time
Any others so sublime
O11 this terrestrial ball g
To ind the like of Nineteen 'Four
We don't care where you gog
For in all this mighty land
There are none one-half as grand
From Maine to Mexico.
E510 quad vz'a'e1'is!
Now just consider this,
The Lavender and Purple we adore :
" Be what you seem to be,"
'Whenever this you see,
Youlll know We're members ofthe Cla
Old Muhlenberg would be quite lost
If we were not on hand.
The other fellows try
To do us, but, oh my l
They don't have half the sand 3
'We keep the lead at any cost,
XVe're big-bugs to the core.
At our pace they can not go,
As they are too dog-on'd slow
For good old Nineteen ,FOLl1'.-CHO.
In after years the world will know
The greatness of our fame :
The mountain-sides will ring
And history will sing
The praises of our name.
As through our college days we go
Weill take things as they come,
And- come they surely will 3
Our place the rest ca11't fill,
For they are on the bum.-CHO

History of 1905.
T was on a bright September morn, after the clouds had vanished and the sun
had again appeared, that there assembled before a grand and stately building
a crowd of young boys Cnot mature enough to call themselves menl eagerly
gazing at what they imagined a coming Paradise 5 for the beautiful surroundings
and the smiling faces which greeted them on every side, seemed to fill them with
the happy hope that they Would happen upon a congenial crowd, and the inspira-
tion that emanates from classic halls. X,Ve were at once informed by these smiling
faces that that upon which We novv gazed was to be to us a house of trouble.
Being too young to understand those Words then, We little realized their truth,
but we soon learned to appreciate what they meant for us. We were then kindly
invited to enter the building, and staggering, as it were, through what might,
by a mere visitor, Well be called a dark and lonely tunnel with entrances upon
either side, we seemed to read upon the very walls that our days here would not
be one continuous sunshine. At the end of this tunnel, We, in some mysterious
Way, found ourselves in a place fitted for Worship. This again created in us a
sense of awe and Wonder, as well as a gentle touch of timidity. But seeing
enthroned before us the stately figures of our Faculty, fear was at once dismissed.
It was in this place that we received the name of Freshmen, which did indeed
seem fresh to us. During the solemn services that followed, we became somewhat
restless, and turning about saw that those who had greeted us with smiling faces
were now, with pointed fingers and drawn faces, Whispering to one another in a
Way that bred within us a feeling of distrust and suspicion.
Days came and went, and our studies, which were to serve as a preparation
for manhood, were beginning to deeply encircle us.
We had scarcely been under the regular drill of our various professors,
particularly the one of Physical Culture fame, when we received the information
from our sympathizing friends Cthe Iuniorsj that, on the coming Friday, the
Sophs. Would test our ability in rushing, and that the place they had selected Wai?
the stairway. Witli this started the active work of ,o5. It was the intention of
the Sophs. to take us by surprise, but having some keen-eyed ones among our
number We soon discovered the plan and time of the affray in which we were to
display our ability as hand-to-hand combatants.
The Friday dawned with a clear sky, and it could be plainly seen that the
Sophs. were preparing for something unusual. Wheii the " old bell " tolled that
morning, it summoned us to what we thought our fate. Though hesitating at
Hrst, on seeing their heavily-equipped front, we bravely made the attack. The
struggle that then ensued can scarcely be presented in words. The most notice-
able result was a good-bye shower of torn books, several scratched faces, and the
shreds of tattered garments. The battle was in full sway and seemingly about to
turn in our favor, when the " hand of appeal" of our dear President solemnly
rose above us. Thus ended this epoch in our history.
The opening of the next day brought to our ears the tale of how the Sophs.
intended to defeat us in foot-ball, with a score of at least 5o-og but by some
marvelous playing for blundering, if you pleasej we held them down to a score of
23-5. We, of course, took great pride in imparting to them the information that
they were not capable of playing foot-ball.
Thanksgiving day followed soon, and the turkey with its flying colors was
landed safely at its destination.
The days grew colder, and soon the fields were covered with snow and ice,
all of which predicted a sleighride for us. 'We departed on a cloudy noon, with
Bath as our destination, and returned the following noon, healthy and total in
We do not wish, at this time, to predict our future history, for since our
motto, Sth ?Dien, signihes that it is our intention at least sometime in our four
years to make ourselves worthy of bearing the name of the institution, we feel
confident that the future will be as glorious as the past.

Sunday, June 16,1901.
24. Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So
run, that ye may obtain.
25. And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now
they do it to obtain a corruptible crown 3 but we an incorruptible.
26. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly g so Fight I, not as one that beateth the air:
27. But I keep under my body and bring it into subjection g lest that hy any means, when
I have preached to others, I myself should be a Castaway.-1 C'01'i1zthz'a71s, 9: 24-27.

necessary changesg also to arrange for the President's residence. The committee
has power to act.

Sophronian Literary Society.
Q3 sg 125
HE Sophronian Literary Society, since its organization in 1867, has never
enjoyed such prosperity as it has during the past year, To one of its
members was granted the prize in the Junior Oratorical Contest, and it was
her debating team that carried away the honor in the intersociety debate.
Sophronia has had a past that she may well 'feel proud of, and, with no lag-
ging in interest and activity, her future may even overshadow the past. The
library contains at present two thousand one hundred and fifteen catalogued
books, and additions to the number are continually made.
With her colors, White and Blue, which adorn her well-equipped hall,
together with the irrepressible zeal of the members, and her past history, " the end
which crowns the work " will be one of which her members may well boast. Her
rostrum is a forum in which young men display their forensic abilities. Within
her hall it was that the dormant powers of expression of her members were
aroused, and like a flood Where it is banked, arose the highest, then rebounded
into the world, working a mighty influence. May her members continue to do
the good work which they thus far have done, and ever remember her motto :
" The End Crowns the Work,"
Sophronian Literary Society.

OR thirty-five years Euterpea has played a prominent part in the development
of the expressive powers of a majority of the sons of Muhlenberg. It is
Within her Walls that the latent powers of oratory in her devotees were
aroused, as the testimony of many bears witness Her motto: " Watch and
Advance," has ever been her guiding principle, and in trying to follow it she
owes her success.
She has at present sixty-one members, and as we are safe in judging the
future from the present and past, we feel confident that her prosperity in time to
come will not be inferior to what has been the case thus far in her advancement.
During the past year the library has undergone many changes, and the books
have been recatalogued. Over a hundred new books of Fiction, Science,
Religion, History and Biography have been added. The library now contains
two thousand six hundred and fourteen volumes.
Euterpea can ever feel proud of the able men she has sent out in the various
walks of life, and there is every reason to believe that a glorious future awaits her.

The Sophomore Banquet.
Q33 -.95 Q9
'HE Sophomores considered that a great proportion of the fun connected with
the annual banquet of that Class could be had at college by watching the
Freshmen in their vain attempts to discover the time and place of the ban-
quet, and in seeing them mass every other night to frustrate the imaginary
departure of the Sophomores. This ludicrous state of affairs continued during
january and the greater part of February, until the Freshmen, thoroughly
chagrined by their fruitless vigils, concluded that the Sophomores had indef-
initely postponed the time of their banquet. They suddenly changed their minds,
however, when, on the morning of February 27, having assembled for the usual
morning recitations, they found that every Sophomore was away from college.
They had left that morning on the 5.35 train for Philadelphia, and arrived
in that city at about 7 o'clock. They established their headquarters at the Hotel
Windsor, and after partaking of breakfast, proceeded to View places of interest in
and about the city. The City Hall, N0v'ih ff77Z67"Z'6'6Z7L Building, Academy of Fine
Arts, Zoological Gardens, University of Pennsylvania, and many other places of
note were visited. The same evening almost the entire Class witnessed a per-
formance of " Florodora " at the Chestnut Street Theatre.
The next day a great discovery was made. Someone accidentally strayed
into the " Rathskellerf' The rest of the Class went in to remove him, but did
not depart until they had investigated the healing virtues of some of the six kinds
of imported German Soda Water for which that place is noted. -
The banquet was held on the evening of February 28, at the Hotel Windsor.
N. Guiley Finch, of Lafayette College, and Charles W. Rick, of Reading,
ex-members of the Class, were also present. Claude T. Reno presided as toast-
master, with all the eloquence and wit for which he is renowned, and each person
responded to his toastg even those who Were called upon toward the close of the
banquet-a fact worthy of mention.
A few returned home on Saturday, although the majority remained until
Sunday. The events of the trip to Philadelphia will always be recalled with fond
recollections by the Sophomores, and the banquet is recognized as the most enjoy-
able and successful event in the history of 1904.

Sophomore-Freshman Foot-Ball Game.
HE event of special interest to the lower classrnen-since it is among the first
encounters in which these became engaged, and which often brings out
prominently some heretofore latent powers-is the annual foot-ball game.
On Wediiesday, November 6, the game of 1902 was played between the Classes
of 'O4 and 'o5, on the athletic grounds at Rittersville. It was a very interesting
game, both because of the quick work done and the Vim displayed.

Freshman Sleigh Ride.
The second ter111 of our college year is generally marked as the time when
tl1e sleigh rides are held. We are glad to mention tl1e fact that the Class of 1905
did not break the custom. The evening of Friday, January 31, IQO2, might be
called the evening that laid the foundation of the history of the Class of 19055
for the members of the Class heralded their existence to the people of Allentown
and vicinity by taking advantage of the freshly-fallen snow and ushering into
history that annual event-the Freshman Sleigh Ride.
The departure was so shrewdly arranged that this youngest son of Muhlen-
berg kept the " wise fools"-the Sophomores-guessing until the last moment.
The news of the departure spread like Wildfire. One of the Freshmen wasa
member of the Dramatic Association, and as that organization happened to have
its picture taken in the afternoon of this particular day, tl1e Sophomores who
were members tried to delay the taking of the picture in order that the Freshman
might be left behind by his fellow-classmates. But, as usual, the 'shrevvdness of
the Freshmen exceeded that of the Sophomores.
The Class met in the very heart of the city on the afternoon of the above-
mentioned date, and defied the enemy to approach. Imagine, if you will, the
large sleigh, tl1e fine ride, tl1e arrival at Bath, the soft drinks, the supper, the
return, tl1e nap, and the " dark-brown taste and head " next morning. Rex Con-
viviorum Horn, in Freshmanic style, introduced the various members of the Class,
who responded nobly. Thus was effected one stepping-stone in the history of the
Class that has brought it into prominence, and that will be succeeded in due time
and order by others of greater moment until she shall have ceased to exist as a

Widu Comments and Elucidations for the Enlightenment and Instruction
of the Observer. '
" His deeds inimitable like the sea
That shuts still as its opes and leaves no tracts
Nor prints of precedent for poor men's facts."
Man is " fearfully and wonderfully made." Search the wide world over and
you will not ind a more vivid illustration of the Psalmist's comment on the Cre-
ator's masterpiece than in our friend and classmate, HARRY EUGENE BARNDT.
His wonderful feats and singular actions inspire the hearts of his fellows with awe
and amazement, and leave him practically without a peer. He is one of Bucks
County's sons, and certainly Bucks has not produced a greater prodigy for many
centuries. Many attempts have already been made by his associates to unravel
this enigma, but no satisfactory solution has yet been enunciated. Woe unto him
who will dare to risk his reputation for prophecy on this individual! His glory
will surely come to naught. For deep in the nooks of his mind may lie hidden
some dormant powers, which, when fully aroused at some future time, will more
clearly reveal his innate capabilities. His past career, at least, has been beyond
reproach. According to tradition he was born in Hilltown township, Bucks Co.,
Pa. He was educated in the public schools of his native town and finally gradu-
ated with honor at the Sellersville High School. He later studied at the Millers-
ville State Normal School. Mr. Barndt also acquired a good reputation as a ped-
agogue. For two years he was engaged in dealing out hickory tea. This
probably clarifies the various vague opinions heretofore held to explain why he
should be so calm and attentive during recitations, and at other times so boister-
ous and precocious. His college life has not yet revealed any very strong
inclinations toward any particular profession. We therefore do not possess any
safe criterion which will enable us to foretell in what portion of the iirmament of
life this bright star will shine. We can not, however, refrain from entertaining a
sincere belief that a man who, from eternal manifestations, shows indications of
possessing extraordinary hidden powers, has been predestined to become famous.
" But to that purpose first surrender
The Fiddler, as the prime offender,
Th' incendiary vile, that is chief
Author and engineer of mischief."
This is the " nddlerf, OLIVER REUBEN BITTNER, a character renowned far
and wide for humor, pleasantry, raillery, vexatiousness, and trickery. He even
at times would be a bore and pesterer. In appearance he is comical, graceful,
" less famous for beauty than strength, and of rather superfluous length." He
struts through the halls as if he were it all. Sometimes he is in quest of knowledge
and more light, but more frequently of an opportunity to nip some fellow nodding.
Not infrequently may one awake from his cogitations and ind his pockets picked,
with the contents scattered about his feet, himself placarded on the back or
otherwise duped by some wary prowler. He need only search his surroundings,
when he will forthwith spy this rogue skulking in retreat and chnckling to his
heart's content. At times, our friend is also entertaining, indulging freely in wit
and repartee, and exhibiting many singular eccentricities. His grimaces, when he
is in buoyant spirits, will suilice to dispel the frowns from the most sullen counte-
nance. He has perfect control of all his members and seems to possess some magic
influence over them at times, for at will he is able to make all his bones rattle in
unison. Such an experience is horrifying and we would advise none to encourage
this necromancer to apply his charm. Very seldom, however, Mr. Bittner is of a
sober disposition, and when despitefully used, even threatening and dangerous.
Wheii his countenance begins to darken, his eyes to glare, and his jaws to
tremble, then beware. For recreation Reuben plays the violin and is an
accomplished vocalist. He is a native of Germansville, Pa., a graduate of the
Keystone State Normal School, and a teacher by profession. He is an indus-
trious, honest, and tireless student, and a young man of great promise.
"A man, he seems, of cheerful yesterdays
And confident to-morrows. "
Behold a typical example of gravity and complacency, a man of cheer and
spirit, but temperate and observant of moderation and decency, mirthful and
industrious in prosperity 5 serene and cautious amidst alarms. FRANK CROMAN,
from Quakertown, Pa., enjoys the reputation of possessing a calm temper and a
deliberate mind. With his genial Wit, friendly greetings, and graceful adieus
We are all familiar. Being socially and amicably inclined, he can readily adapt
himself to all classes and conditions. Although puny in stature and strength, he
nevertheless, by his courteous and dignified demeanor, stately bearing, and win-
ning appearance, encounters no difficulty in winninghis way into the graces of all.
His patient disposition and mild nature exert a charming influence and bind him
closely to the members of the gentler sex, for he is a great favorite among the fair,
and passes in feminine gossip as "' the gentleman with the fine teeth." In
harmony with his temperate and sober nature he prudently refrains from taking
full advantage of his enviable and attractive position, but shuns all importunate
advances, and carefully avoids all enticing snalres. Consistent with one who
possesses fine taste, and impressed with the truths of the Gospel, he recognizes
the splendor and beauty of the " Lily," but does not spurn the merits of other
flowers, For pastime our friend recreates his mind by meditating on the fanciful
and mysterious. He delights to speak of snakes, and attributes his preference
among the fair to his fancied resemblance to the " Man in the Moonfl Mr.
Croman, however, is a faithful servant of the church. He is a conserative Luth-
eran and strictly adheres to the tenets of Lutheranism. He also is a zealous Sun-
day-school worker, and has been successively tested in all the departments of
the Work. Finally he will follow the humble shepherd's calling.
" My only books
Are woman's looks,
And folly's all they've taught me."
Behold a philosopher-one who, in contradiction to 1?ope's philosophy,
maintains that the proper study of mankind is woman! Hotly does he combat
those of an adverse school and vigorously does he prosecute his research to fortify
his doctrines. This ardent admirer of the female kind is FRANKLIN THEODORE
ESTERLY. He is Dersona grafa among the fair, and is neither partial nor parsi-
monious in reciprocating such an exceptional favor, nor reluctant to cater to their
wishes. Our knight is, at the most, seemingly, a very hilarious man, but his
happiness is oftentimes blighted by his apprehensions of the future. He is
apprehensive that he will be unable to direct his affections so exclusively to any
particular one as to justify a permanent union. Consequently, he fears that,
after his glory shall have waned, he will be destined to join the forlorn Order of
Celibates. This zealous devotion to all and special preference for none the
philosopher explains with the time-honored declaration that " variety is the spice
of life." But we would kindly forewarn him of the painful and irksome
monotony which will unfailingly follow in the wake of variety, once bewitching
and pleasurable in its prime, but now vanished and irrevocable. For the gods
will once strip this beau ideal of his charms and his fickle worshippers will scurry
away to pay homage to a fairer and tenderer one. Although the care of the
weaker sex is his chief concern, he at times, for recreation, directs his attention to
other matters. Consistent with a man of wide experience, he is very loquacious.
As an orator he is gifted, pleasing, spirited and effective. Mr. Esterly received
his preparatory training at the Pottsville High School. He is the most recent
addition to the Class, and is a very desirable one.
" He's young, and quite handsome, no doubt 5
Rather slender, and 11Ot over-tall g
And he loves a snug little turn-out,
And turns out ' quite a love ' at a ball I "
We beg your forbearance, kind reader, in introducing this gentle youth to you.
After a brief intercourse and a tacit understanding of good-will, he will venture
out of his shell and will prove very friendly, courteous and sociable-in a word, a
jolly good fellow and a valuable friend. But before you have dispelled all possible
doubt on his part as to the nature of your intentions, and have gained his confl-
deuce, do not further intimidate him nor disturb his modesty by being rash and
making inconsiderate advances g for he is at first very timid, bashful, unstable in
equilibrium, and difficult of approach. He is eager to become familiar with the
disposition of strangers before he is willing to court full acquaintance, This
modest but exemplary young gentleman is JOHN BENNER GEISINGER. Quaker-
town is his home. This place must needs be inhabited by very refined and
circurnspect people, for our friend exhibits signs of the best breeding and most
careful social training. He is very careful to make a handsome appearance on all
occasions, and especially when he sings in the College Glee Club. That John has
performed creditably and appeared benttingly on such occasions, has at least been
thus decided by admiring damsels. By common consent, indeed, he is called a
comely chap. It is this solicitude to make a favorable impression which at first
embarasses him when l1e happens upon a stranger. This element of forethought
and caution enters into all his work and causes him to be a very trustworthy and
useful man. He is in an uncommon degree successful on the rostrum, his oratory
being noted for perspicuity, force and effect. He is a member of the Perkiomen
Club and of the Society of Retired Schoolmasters. What the Fates have decreed
for our friend is forbidden to us to know. I
" He knows what's what, and that's as high
As metaphysic wit can flyf'
" What H is a complex and abstruse subject for the meditation of ordinary
men but this man, JACOB DANIEL HEILMAN, has for many years with great zest
and zeal prosecuted investigations and cogitated upon them. He swears by his
head, that if he does not know what's what, he would be dead. Therefore do not
trifle with his wit or you will surely rue it. This indefatigable searcher after
knowledge is not content with merely skimming the surface, but dives to where
the fountains rise and becomes familiar with the causes of things. He deems his
head too small to hold it all, but strives to sift so as to possess the threads. His
mind seems peculiarly adapted to retain knowledge in this way, and when the
occasion presents itself, he begins to unravel his yarn at a wondrous rate. This
marvelous, uniform, and free flow of words is almost mechanical. When the pro-
fessor bids him recite, the machine begins to move. It moves without break until
the professor again interferes to produce rest. His power, when he is compelled
to cease, is as great as at the beginning, and, we would believe, if it were not
contrary to the laws of motion and to the powers of mortals, that he could con-
tinue to speak forever. This extraordinary ability may be attributed to his
thorough familiarity with all subjects, gained by penetrative investigations and
close application, also to his hardy mortality. One can readily infer from his
emaciated and dismal looks that he is a delver into mysteries. We would, how-
ever, beseech him not to be too assiduous or too searching in his inquiries, for the
gods are jealous of mortals prying into their secrets, and might abruptly terminate
his happy career. Mr. Hellman, nevertheless, is of a jovial disposition, long-
suffering and forbearing with his fellowmen, and slow to anger. He lives in
Allentown, is a graduate of the Keystone State Normal School, and a teacher by
profession. After a thorough preliminary training, he will devote his life to
experimenting on mind.
" If to ask questions that would puzzle Plato,
And all the sclioolmen of the Middle Age-
If to make precepts worthy of old Cato
Be deemed philosophy--this man's a sage! "
Say ye that Socrates is dead? Refrain from. wagering your head. For if
this be not Socrates, he surely is his double or equal. This man of many ques-
tions is ERWIN REUBEN JHAXHEIMER. He busies himself going up and down the
highways and byways and accosting whomsoever he meets with an endless suc-
cession of questions. Neither high nor low, learned nor illiterate, nobleman nor
peasant, professor nor student, prudent nor foolish, old nor young, male nor
female can escape this solicitous questioner. This vocation he follows, partly, for
pleasure, partly, for edification of self, but mostly, to become familiar with the
lot and condition of his fellowmen, to share in their troubles and to prescribe
remedies for their woes. He continues to propound question after question until
he has completely perplexed and baffled the answerer, and has thoroughly
acquainted himself with the wants of his patient. After having secured this
necessary knowledge, he forthwith prescribes a never-failing recipe for his malady.
If anyone is so foolhardy as to controvert his precepts, he is immediately besieged
with such a storm of questions as to make his position untenable. Even Solomon
in the glory of his wisdom would not have been able to trip this crafty questioner,
Yea, the Sphinx of Thebes would have been compelled to assume a humble mien
and acknowledge a worthy rival. Of a truth, if such uncommon ability is a mark
of wisdom, "Ajax " is a sage. We hope that this philosopher will not neglect to
entrust his teachings and the results of his investigations to letters ere he yields
up the ghost, otherwise posterity will be deprived of a priceless treasure. " Jax "
is a Bethlehemite. He declines to travel in any other way than by electric car.
He is deeply interested in his work, of decorous behavior, pleasing speech, calm
temper and temperate disposition. He contemplates studying theology.
" Zealons, yet modest g innocent, though free g
Patient of toil, serene amidst alarms,
Infiexible in faith, invincible in arms."
In Oley, Berks County, Pa., is said to live a rather singular class of men.
They never fall " at odds " nor come to blowsg never cast envious eyes nor tread
on ar1other's toes 5 but always live in peace and share one another's woes. The
men always speak the truth, pay their honest debts, raise large families, walk
upright before the Lord, and wait and pray for the great judgment day. Their
wives never betray their trust nor infringe upon their husbands' rights, never
pillage the family treasure nor go a-gossiping. The young men keep to their books,
are not decoyed by misses' looks, never tread nocturnal mazes, and always retain
sober faces on the most laughable occasions. They never indulge in pies, and
always rise at five. The maidens never disfigure their faces nor parade in
extravagant laces, but always wear homely graces and avoid dangerous places 3 go
to church every Sabbath, and take in only one beau a day. Thus has rumor
designated fair Oley dale, and one indeed is tempted to style it Utopia. We have
never been in this vale, but these facts we do not doubt at all g for ROGER CLAUSER
KAUFMAN, whose likeness here you see, has told them all. They are here
repeated to assist the reader in judging this character more correctlyg for Roger
prides himself on the virtues of the Oleyites, and attributes much of his suc-
cess to the moulding influence of wholesome home environments. His " family
thread he can well ascend nor does he 'dnd it waxed at the further end." He
possesses all the noble qualities of his people, and college life has not changed his
steady habits nor impaired his moral excellence. This man from Oley is firm,
earnest, devout, faithful, composed, ambitious, assiduous, unassuming and
" His wit invites you by his looks to come,
But when you knock, it never is at home."
Franklin was reputed always to have done the proper thing at the opportune
time and at the right place. This man is noted for doing the improper thing at
an inopportune time and at the wrong place. When in recitation and bidden to
recount the fortunes of the children of Israel in the wilderness of Sin, he speaks of
the prospects of the rival candidates at the next election, and urges just claims for
Democratic victory. When the time solely reserved for work in Latin is at hand,
and he is kindly requested by the Latin professor to translate into English, he
remains ominously silent. When he should be in his study, applying himself
diligently to his tasks. he is found loitering in the halls, haranguing some absent-
minded Freshman or Sophomore and rebuking him for not observing proper
decorum, When he should be attentive to the lectures in English, he is busily
engaged in delineating the physical features and prominent facial expressions of
his Zieblifzgs-professor on the rear cover of his textbook. This disrespecter of
subject and season is EDWIN KELLER KLINE. His countenance seemingly reflects
an active mind, and one is almost tempted by his looks to court intercourse with
his inner counsels. But when more closely pressed he repels all advances and
remains unreservedly taciturn on all subjects, save when a question on politics is
broached. Forthwith his tongue is loosened and words begin to stream forth.
" Teddy " is indigenous to Allentown, and seldom Ventures beyond its limits.
Once he was persuaded to join a party of tourists to New York City, but was so
chagrined and humiliated by the rude treatment of the police, that by solemn vow
he has resolved never to go abroad again. Mr. Kline is an artist and is especially
successful in portraying human features. He is also an, able financier. He
manifests an l1I'1CO1l1l1'1OI1 interest in politics and strong inclinations for the legal
profession. Future time may ind him a master in the forum and a " boss " in
" Young man ! it's a critical thing to go
Exactly right with a lady in tow g
But when you are in the proper track,
just go ahead, and never look back I "
Here, tireless observer, you behold a niariner, tempest-tossed, weather-proven,
who never knew disaster and not once suffered shipwreck. Father Neptune has
in turn tried all his numerous wiles to bathe the skin of this fortune-favored
sailor in the deep, but he has thus far baffled all his plans and roves the sea with
frame unimpaired and stout craft intact. The brave seaman not only kept his
own vessel unscathed by storm and waves, but was constantly having his Lady-
ship in tow. He guided both untouched through all storms and steered free of all
rocks, and therefore deserves the greater plaudit, for not every seafarer can thus
elude the crafty sea-king. At times, already, His Lordship would fain draw in
the rope and lead his Ladyship to port 5 and Her Ladyship would not, but kept
her distance true. This inariner, however, has full faith in his powers safely to
manage both ships, so that he scorns all assistance and brooks no interference. Who
might this sailor be? This chief of seamen is MELVIN AUGUSTUS KURTZ. With
His Lordship we are perfectly intimate, and this we will forthwith proceed to
describe. His Ladyship we do not know, and would only add that she is likely fair,
and will leave the rest for some more favored day. His Lordship hails from East
Greenville, Montgomery County, Pa. In confession he is strictly Lutheran and
has descended from a long line of church-fathers. When his services are sought,
he proves to be a very pleasing and instructive speaker before Luther Leagues,
Sunday-schools and other church assemblies. He is proficient in drawing and
possesses fine taste and critical acumen. At school he is a faithful student.
During vacation he may be found in the bakery indulging in ginger-snaps and
honey-cakes, flavored with tender sweetheart kisses. He has decided to follow
in the footsteps of his fathers, and will strive to emulate their laudable efforts.
" An honest man, close-buttoned to the chin,
Broadcloth without and a warm heart within."
Here is a man Whose home is in the picturesque and romantic Mohawk Val-
ley. The sturdy braves, who once made these forests resound with their savage
din, had long since passed into the shades when this late comer made his
advent into this region. Hence he reveals none of those sturdy characteristics
which one would seek in those who were nursed and reared in a locality invested
in every quarter with countless tales of bold adventure and thrilling displays of
heroism. On the contrary, he is very gentle, modest, peaceful, averse to all
hazardous undertakings, and perfectly harmless. Nevertheless, we fancy that
some mischievous elves must still have danced among the tree-tops, and straggling
and belated bands of treacherous imps must have wandered through the forests of
these mountain dales-which are said to have hlled these woods in ages past-
When the subject of our sketch came upon the scene. For his features suggest
the mysterious and betray some Rip Van Winkle experiences. In spirit and
bearing, however, he is a typical representative of the modern class of men which
inhabits this valley. His character bears the regal impress of the Empire State
-lordly, arrogant, imposing and majestic. But His Majesty is not discriminate
in bestovving merited favors, and condescends with open heart to all, provided they
are sincere and observe the obligations of true friendship. He strictly heeds the
dictates of his conscience and will not be seduced by the strongest arguments.
Qnly once was he galled with a guilty conscience 3 when for once his conscience
was dozing, he broke the bed at Hole! de Mzzro. In German recitations, he is one
of the few that have the courage to sit perfectly quiet for the whole period. This
sedate, august, reserved and mysterious young man is EDWARD GEORGE LEE-
EELDT, from Utica, N. Y.
" To him, the worldza huge plum-pudding seems,
Made up of richest viands, fruits and creams,
Which of all choice ingredients partookfl
It repents us that we did not persist in demanding a full-sized likeness, in full
dress, for this impression 5 for this portrait may far mislead strangers to misjudge
the moment, capacity and capabilities of this man. You will only observe a small,
marble-like head, with clear, rolling eyes, set on broad, square shoulders. If the
remainder of the frame should break forth, then would the real giant appear,
evidencing the true import of his person. The slender bust would forthwith
expand into a paunch of enormous girth, abruptly narrowing into short, thin,
iiabby calves, and at the base, projecting in ponderous and uncommonly large
feet. His short legs aiford him small leverage, and by extended base alone is the
able to retain stable equilibrium. This portly, but agile young gentleman is
ROLAND LORENTZ MILLER, from Emaus, Pa. As is common to men of his form,
he is a devotee of Epicurus and Bacchus, and of a jovial disposition. He seeks to
sate his stomach with the choicest delicacies procurable, but seemingly without
deleterious effects on his system, No prognostications of gout have yet mani-
fested themselves, and we predict a long life of indulgence. This pandering to
the wants of the inner man, and such a preponderance, however, do not blight his
mental powers, but his intellectual powers are keen and active, and " Fatty "
enjoys the distinction of having a very clear head and unruffled disposition.
Frequently he indulges in humor, and proves witty and amusing. He delights to
land the good old times of Washington and jefferson, when men were free from
all restraint to indulge to their heart's content, and not bound by hygienic laws
and social rules. Toil and care cannot mar the mirth of this Epicurean, for their
company he wisely shuns. What part he will take in the great drama of life, the
gods have failed to communicate to us, but whatever character he shall assume,
he will assuredly receive the popular applause.
" He wears a most serious face,
Well worthy of a martyr's possessing g
But it isnlt all owing to grace,
But partly to thinking and guessing?
"Forsooth, a very serious man g" you will say, " perhaps heavenly bent."
Thy judgment has served thee fairly well, for he is indeed dubbed " Parson "
and has most serious intentions. Neither does anger ever mar his sober face.
Indeed a would-be saint you here behold, but of a decidedly secular stamp.
Although these grave features become the sanctimonious, in this instance, how-
ever, they refiect other beside divine thoughts. Indeed We will not attempt to make
mention of the numerous diverse thoughts that Hit through this manis mind. To
say the least, PAUL JACOB NEFF is a very myriad-minded man. Of an extremely
contemplative disposition, he, by day, is absorbed by deep meditation and reveries 3
by night he tosses on his couch harassed by the dream god. When in his Sabbath
garb, he bears himself so reverently and innocently, performs his religious
rites so scrupulously, that one is almost tempted to swear, if necessary, that noth-
ing profane could attract the attention of this devout man. When seen, however,
in the bustle of life and on the thoroughfares of the world, he is jostling the crowd
in his strenuous efforts to reach the front ranks. He is deeply interested in all
great enterprises, sacred or profane 5 and manifests the same degree of earnestness
and sincerity in his secular functions as in his religious offices. Nothing is under-
taken except after careful reiiection and long deliberation. Everything is artfully
planned and skilfully executed. If taken unawares, he displays great self-pos
session and dexterity in treating with the unforeseen. He is also very successful
in guessing, and thus adroitly eludes all the snares of the professor in math-
ematics. Paul resides in Spring City, Pa., and is the son of a Lutheran clergy-
man. This partly explains his sober disposition. He is a fluent speaker, cheer-
ful entertainer, of pleasing appearance and kind to ladies.
" W'e grant, although he has much wit
He's very shy of using it,
As being loth to wear it out
And therefore bears it not about."
If taciturnity and sobriety are indicative of a great mind and sound sense,
this man, HENRY EDXVARD ORFF, evidently possesses both. If, however, as is
often maintained, they betray duplicity and subtlety and forbode evil, he is a
suspicious and dangerous character. But, from daily contact and an unbroken
intercourse of years, we are constrained to favor the former and kinder interpre-
tation. Some men would talk always, but this man only when the spirit moves
him. Many a less prudent wit would dispose of his choicest wares in a single day,
and would flourish and decline in an hourg but he will preserve some of his humor
for another day. That the " Governor H is blessed with more than ordinary tact
and ability, has been verified by the despatch and pronciency with which he has
disposed of every task which has been assigned to him. He enjoys the pleasure
of annually succeeding himself as historian of the Class, an honor fraught with
responsibility and expectation, and an office difficult to fill in such an august body.
That he possesses sound sense is manifested by the care and propriety with which
he observes the golden mean. He is prudent not to overtax his mind nor inordi-
nately to drain his energies. He follows a fixed schedule in work. The time
allotted to each subject varies directly with its importance and the tastes of the
student. A brief period is devoted to the study of German, for Mr. Orff contem-
plates crowning his education with a course at one of the leading universities of
Germany. He will then be able to master the language through communion with
those who use it constantly, and without severe application. Natural Theology is
his forte and he purposes finally to consecrate his life to the reclamation of
" That boy in gloves, the leader of the van,
Talks of the ' outer' and the 'inner' man,
And knits his girlish brows in stout resolve
Some mountain-sized ' idea' to evolve."
The Class of 1903 vaunts itself in having enlisted in its ranks a disciple of
Pope. For one of its sons is both an ardent advocate and a strict observer of this
poet's celebrated teaching: " The proper study of man is man." WILLIAHI
HENRY ROTH is a born student of human nature, He delights so much in his
calling that he follows it incessantly. Although he does ample justice to his
prescribed tasks in college, he never neglects to take advantage of every oppor-
tunity to increase his knowledge on his favorite subject of study. With eyes alert
and ears erect he carefully takes account of the successes and failures of his com-
panions. He keenly realizes the prime importance of results. He is an expert
accountant and Well-versed in ratios and limits. Whenexfer consulted, he can with
much ease and without hesitation furnish with remarkable accuracy the merits of
any of his acqaintances. So thoroughly has he studied the complexities of the
mind that he possesses the ability of determining the relative capacities and the
limits of activity of the various faculties of different individuals. He not only
critically delves into the hidden natures of his fellownien, but is also very
obedient to the Delphic precept and zealously strives to know himself. His
thorough acquaintance with the capabilities of others, combined with a precise
estimate of his own powers, makes him a formidable rival. Moreover, he is crafty,
hopeful, persistent, talented, ambitious and industrious, He is also very skilful
in playing the woman. He has very successfully personated " Jessie Fortune"
in "Hickory Farm " and " Alvina" in " The Cheerful Liar." Our gifted
friend was born near Tylersport, Montgomery County, Pa. He was educated in
the public schools, Sellersville High School and Muhlenberg Academy.
" And one of those chaps who makes a pun,n
As if it were quite legitimate fun

Lo! here is a man upon whom there sit no flies, impetuous as the running
streams and restless as the surging billows. Quickly speak, if you Wish anything,
for he is in haste. Do not delay him for he must be about doing his urgent
business. Attempt not to gainsay him, for he is invincible in verbal combat and
you Will retire from the fray in shame and humiliation. To satisfy your probable
eagerness to learn the name of such a man, We will grant you the desire. He is
AUGUST WILLIAM ROHRIG, alias " Larry McKeegan." He embodies many
characteristic traits of the Hibernians, but is luckily a fulleblooded Teuton.
Domitz, Germany, witnessed his birthnight. The Fatherland, however, could not
long restrain such an adventurous and rebellious spirit. As soon as the stripling
could muster sufficient strength, he sundered his chains and fled to the mountains
of Pennsylvania. Dusky Mauch Chunk is now his most favored retreat. This
plucky man possesses a very complex nature and Proteus-like can adapt himself
to Well-nigh all conditions and circumstances. His most prominent propensity,
however, is to quibble. In argument he is hair-splitting, long-vvinded and inflexi-
ble. An extended experience and exhaustless stock of information render him
very effectual in disputation and he never misses an opportunity to press his claims
to authority. As an orator he is forcible, eloquent, pleasing and persuasive.
Industry, honesty, piety and punctuality he cherishes and practices as golden
virtues. Although the Church enjoys his best service, it nevertheless is not
unlikely that We shall some day light upon him guiding tourists through the
crumbling castles and gorgeous cathedrals of the Old World.
" 'Tis strange how some I11C11,S tempers suit
tLike bawd and brandyj with dispute."
This is plain ROBERT SCHLOTTER, the pitchfork orator, from Hellertown,
Pa., a born controversialist. He is a man of strong convictions and infiexible
opinions. He finds much pleasure in gainsaying others, but with great stubborn-
ness and bitterness resists all contradiction of his own views. He is not at ease
unless he may be carping at someone. Zeal and earnestness, however, govern all
his actions. It is not envy or love of glory that spurs on this iiery caviler, but the
inner impulses of his disputative nature and the desire to champion truth and cor-
rect reasoning. Any display of vanity or insolence is resisted with bitter
reproach and relentless rigor. Occasionally he may be seen severely reprimand-
ing conceited swells or inflated fops for their foolish display of ignorance. He is
frank and blunt of address, and does not hesitate to brand every measure not in
harmony with his tastes as most odious and pernicious. Rail and rave he must,
for the gods ordained it thus. For he who aspires to become a messenger of the
gods and expounder of their will, must necessarily cultivate a censorious spirit.
Men may question his authority and the urgency of his counsels, but the final
reckoning will disclose their error and the importance of his calling. 'A Bob " is
not only fitted to exert a wholesome influence in his private walks, but is excep-
tionally qualiiied to be an effective public reformer. But on account of his
modesty and meekness, however, he can be persuaded to appear on the platform
only after long and earnest solicitation. When he is prevailed upon to make an
appearance, his oratory is of the highest type-impressive, powerful and persua-
sive. His words break forth with such impetuosity and " loftiness of sound " as
to stir the hearts of the most callous. Mr. Schlotter received his preparatory
training in the public schools and at the Hellertown High School. At college he
pays special attention to those studies which will fit him best for his noble calling-
'A A deep occult philosopher
As learn'd as the wild Irish are,
Or Sir Agrippa, for profound
And solid lying much renowned."
Whether this man is an Irishman or an American Indian is an open question.
" Some hold to the one, some to the otherf' He himself insists that he is a
remote offspring of the Redman, but his classmates persist in calling him " Irish."
From his remarkable endurance, agility, energy and combativeness, one would be
induced to credit his claims. His physiognomy and structure also tend to turn the
balance in favor of the same, for when his ire is once kindled his visage will
reflect the fierce countenance of the ancient warrior of the American plains, and
from his glowing eyes will blaze forth Hames of fire. Some have already exper-
ienced what such savage features forebode, and no one is eager to incite his wrath.
Never perhaps has been imprisoned in such a small compass of human shape, such
an exuberance of physical strength which could break forth with such decision,
force and effect when occasion demanded it. You will observe a little man, but a
mighty one. While in action he resembles the Indi-an g in temperament, however,
he is like unto the Celt-presumptuous, obstinate and irascible. A philosopher
-obscure, biased and unjust. He would contend that a man, offering an insult,
should forthwith be challenged to a duel 5 that the end justifies the means, that a
Berks County man is superior to all others, that wealth and might should win the
day, that to escape the wrath of a German professor, a lie is justihableg that
prevarication is an honorable means to shield the truth. This Irish-American
is IRVIN MAURER SHALTER, from Temple, Berks County. He is an industrious
student, of exhaustless energy and irresistible determination. As a companion,
he is agreeable and amicable, provided one possesses sufficient common sense
not to dispute his authority or to oppose his plans. He aspires after law and
reveals many superior qualifications to grace a successful barrister.
" Ah, you fiavor everything 3 you are the vanilla of society."
" Gee Whiz !" W'ho is this rosy-cheeked, sweet-'looking and azure-eyed gallant
that casts such beckoning glances? He is Cupid's man. Beware, feeble lady, lest
you be his game. For, concealed beneath his knightly accoutrements, he has a
quiver laden with Dan Cupid's unerring missiles. Approach not near him. For
this skilful and certain archer will surely stretch his bow. This Venus-sprung
hnntsman is HARRY WINFIELD SHIMER. 'Many and thrilling have been his
adventures. But unfortunately Old Sol never enjoys the pleasure of feasting his
eyes on this mighty hunter's chase, for when the sun shines he is in the sweet
embrace of Morpheus. Only when darkness falls does he sally forth on his bold
excursions. Many a maiden has been tempted by his pleasant and harmless mien
and many exciting chases have followed when they turned to flee his arrows.
Indeed, when you behold this picture you will feast your eyes on a jewel in the
esteem of handsomeilady, and a lion in society. This dandy does not fail to
observe the favorable impression and prestige which he is gaining in social
circles, and is oftentimes tickled with the pleasurable sensations that these
thoughts provoke, He does not hesitate thoroughly to diffuse his fragrance so as
to rise as a sweet-swelling savor to the nostrils of his admirers. Mr. Shimer not
only strenuously strives after social preferment but is also solicitous to acquire
preeminence in all noble and honorable enterprises. Although yet a tender youth
he has enjoyed 'exceptional educational advantages and has been schooled well in
practical experience. He was born in his own town, Shimersville. As soon as
he had mastered the alphabet and knew English sufficiently well to study other
languages, his educational training was entrusted to the principal of Perkiomen
Seminary. Many of his strong passions are not yet completely subdued, but from
present indications of progress toward thls result, we can safely predict that in
due time they will be properly restrained by the rider's bit.
" Here Wit and Fancy in scholastic bowers

"Pray, who is this? l' Be patient. You shall hear. 'Tis ARTHUR LEWIS
SMITH. " But why does he look so sober, as if on silent meditation bent? Does
some absent highland maiden engross the thoughts of this quiet man ? " Oh, no!
ne'er could the fairest lady monopolize a mind like this. Nay, here Wit and
Fancy reign supreme and gambol with glee in meadows green.
Sir Arthur hails from the hills of Wayne County. He is the youngest and
tenderest of a large family. He is a scion of the well-known and numerous house
of Smiths. He is either directly or indirectly related to every man in his native
village. The long nursing of a pious mother and wholesome home environment
have left an indelible impress on his character. This has bred contempt for vain
foolery and ostentatious display. But he is in no wise a dull entertainer and his
sharp and ready wit makes him a desirable companion. Mr. Smith can well say,
" My mind to me a kingdom is," and on its throne geniusrand ability, imagina-
tion and speculation, reign in splendor and bliss. These powers are so active that
it is not uncommon to see them hold high carnival in their palace and our friend
to be completely helpless at their behests. Aerial navigation has already been
contemplated. Old Luna will finally have to condescend to open its gates to
mundane intercourse. The present rude electrical machines will be supplanted by
far more eliicient and improved inventions. Fiction will enjoy a golden age.
Hymnology will experience a glorious revival. A parson will eventually evolve,
but we would warn allspinsters not to waste powder and ammunition, for this
merry bachelor has renounced all intentions of ever becoming a benedict and will
never succumb to your wiles.
" A head erect, serene, and cool,
Endowed with Reason's art,
Is set aloft to guide and rule
A throbbing, wayward heart."
Another member of the mighty house of Smiths. This is Smith, the younger,
no near kinsman to Sir Arthur just lately treated, nor of a similar disposition, but
in many ways diametrically opposite. He also is a noble representative of this
illustrious family, but of an adventurous and restless spirit, a chivalrous and
stately knight of the twentieth century. CHARLES ALFRED SMITH, from Max-
atawny, Berks County, Pa., is a spirited, hopeful, intrepid, and impetuous youth.
A robust and eager country lad, intoxicated with the strength-giving rural ether,
he rushes along like a furious charger, brushing away everything in his path.
Occasionally in his rashness he blindly dashes against a snag, and is unhorsed and
discomfitedg but without delay or disheartenment he gathers himself together
and undismayed proceeds on his bold excursion. Whither such a froward heart
and reckless daring might plunge our iiery knight, we shudder to relate, but
thanks to the all-wise Providence, who in his foresight has provided our friend
with a cool head and wise discretion. Although of a vehement nature, his Hery
passions are sufficiently curbed to prevent disaster. Many older heads might
waver at a most critical moment, but this unrnflied mind always acts with pro-
priety and decision. " Smithy " is in jubilant spirits when the winds are
favorable, and his neighbors are not long in learning the fact 5 for in his exuber-
ance of joy he is solicitous to have his friends share in his heyday and sometimes
to the pains of both. Mr. Smith is dauntless, gifted, studious and ambitious. He
is a youth of brilliancy and promise, and when his course is run, his life will
doubtless bear evidence of faithful stewardship.
" Come not within the measure of my wrath."
We would kindly advise all who would seek the fellowship of this son of
Thunder to be circumspect and considerate in their approach 3 neither overbearing
nor indecent in demeanor. For his anger is easily aroused by insolence or any
incivility, and the storm of abuse and reproach which will be called forth will be
irresistible and diliicult to appease. But if you bear yourself modestly and bridle
your tongue properly, his wrath will sleep on and calmer passions willihold sway.
GEORGE VWILLIAM SPECHT, from Hokendauqua, bears the sobriquet of "Bismark"
among his classmates, and many of the sturdy qualities of the great Premier are
repeated in his namesake. He is active, headstrong, imperious and menacing,
but very oliicious and indulgent to an adopted friend. His battle-cry is, "My
friend, right or wrong." Such extraordinary affections is he accustomed to lavish
upon his churns. One striking contrast, however, between the two personalities
is that of impressiveness. The threats of Prince Bismark humbled his friends to
their knees and spread dismay into the camp of his enemies, while the ravings of
this younger Bisrnark occasion only amusement for his associates and incite
ridicule among his foes. Although still not infrequently his wrath is kindled
into name, nevertheless the kind adrnonitions and wholesome lectures of
professors, together with the acquisition of the classics and the devoted attentions
of his fellow-students, appear to have exerted a salutary and softening influence,
for he is now able to repress his ire, except when extreme arrogance exhausts his
forbearance. Possessing a hardy physique and an athletic disposition, he
participates in all collegiate sports. His achievements, either on the gridiron,
diamond, or in basket-ball, have been brilliant and highly commendable. What
dame Fortune has predestined for our friend, has not yet been revealed to us,
but we are constrained to cherish the hope that such nery inclinations, when once
turned into the proper channel and properly restrained, will be productive of
" But here our authors make a doubt
Whether he were l'11OI'6 wise or stout.
Some hold the one, some the other,
But, howsoe'er they make a pother.
The diff'rence is so small, his brain
Outweighs his rage but half a grain."
" Beware, fellows, do not tease Ursus Major." With this cautionary injunc-
tion, CHARLES DANIEL TREXLER would warn his companions against recklessly
courting disaster. The bugbear, which he would pit against the importunate and
with which he would frighten away assailants, is his own person, fearful and
menacing in appearance, but disguising a faint heart and helpless mass of noth-
ingness, This bugaboo may intimidate strangers, but such as know the truth,
regard it only as mere braggadocio and delight in teasing the " animal."
Although his pranks afford more amusement than those of the most cunning and
dexterous monkey in a rnenagerie, his superior human endowments and well-
balanced character attract the attention of all. " TreX." is a splendid example
of what may be realized by a system of " harmonious development." His person
embodies all the requisites of an ideal man-physical, intellectual and spiritual.
One of the professors, judging from his ponderosity and well-developed physique and
fearing a preponderance, suggested that he should fast for a season 5 but he failed to
note the high degree of development of the complementary parts of the man. His
intellectual powers are keen, active and remarkably susceptive. Great depth of
mind and an exhaustless fund of ready knowledge are exhibited by the prompti-
tude and dispatch with which he solves every knotty question propounded to him.
Especially is he versed in German lore, and not infrequently has almost half of
the recitation period been spent before the professor succeeds in baffling this wily
wit. Mr. Trexler hails from Bernville, Pa. He is the son of a Lutheran clergy-
man, and strictly adheres to the Augsburg Confession. He is a man of .fine tastes,
observes proper etiquette and is a strict fashionist. h
'L To make his merit more discern'd,
He goes to school-he reads-is learned g
Raised high above his birth, by knowledge,
He shines distinguish'd in a college."
This is a man of the people, no guy nor prodigy, but he attracts attention by
his Winning Ways, kind offices and exemplary character. He greatly loathes
regular routine and constantly seeks more pleasure in diversions. Books are his
constant companions, but he is in no wise a book WOl'1ll nor does he cruelly devour
them, but is only their boon companion. He merely peruses them for pastime
and to banish emmi. Fiction, detective stories and love-lyrics possess the greatest
charms. " The Lives of Frank and Jesse james" he has styled his wade meczzm.
This cheering influence of books upon his disposition was soon noticed by his
fellow-students, and he was forthwith chosen librarian. In this capacity he is
very eflicient and to books most officious. We deplore the day, when we shall be
deprived of his services and the books of his guardian care. IRA GUY WAL-
BORN, from Pinedale, Schuylkill County, Pa., is universally esteemed by his
schoolmates as a gentleman of the true stamp. He " goes to school," but never
arduously applies himself, yet he is a man of erudition and refinement. Music is
one of his many accomplishments and he is most acceptably performing the duties
of organist in the college choir He also is an honorary member of the " Order
of Knights of the Fragrant Weed," By extensive reading and a close observ-
ance of " the passing of the times," he keeps well abreast with the rapid strides
of progress, and is indefatigable in promoting all beneficial improvements and
manly enterprises. Sound judgment and anxious deliberation characterize all
his efforts. He is continually revolving plans in his mind for the elevation of
society and the amelioration of the condition of humanity. W'e venture to pre-
dict that, after a maturer development of his powers, his fond hopes will be realized
and government, society and industrial pursuits will undergo a complete revolution.

Dear reader, tarry for a moment and carefully examine this portrait. Should
you recognize it as the likeness of your friend, JOSEPH MILTON WEAVER, your
countenance will be all aglow from the many fond recollections of happy hours
spent in his company, and your heart will overhovv with none but the tenderest
affections. He is alike the darling of gentle lady and the favorite of noble
knight. Should you be so unfortunate as to be a stranger, do notfdelay to culti-
vate the acquaintance of this young gentleman. " Joe-" is in no wise distant,
neither repellent nor restrictive in the number of his friends. It will be very
easy for you, if of a sociable and amiable disposition, to vvin his graces, He will

bearing, polished in manners, excellent in deportment 3 but nevertheless very
kind-hearted, sympathetic and benevolent. lie is the possessor of an exception-
allyi sweet tenor voice, and his fame as a soloist has spread far beyond the confines
of the Lehigh Valley. His talent has already been sought in distant cities. One
possessing so many charming qualities and cardinal virtues must needs have sprung
from noble sires. It is not improbable, if We should be better versed in genealogy,
that We would be able to trace the origin of this singer to the Thracian Orpheus.
Mr. Weaver is a genuine Allentonian. He was born, weaned, reared and educated
Within its precincts. He is a graduate of the High School and at present a very
industrious student in the scientific department of this institution. He will
probably some day be one of the leading physicians of this country.
" Sublime Philosophy I-benigna. t light!
Which sees in every pair of wrongs, a right 5
Which finds no evil or in sin or pain
And proves that decalogues are writ in vain I "
Another philosopher, of a new school I " Foolish men may fret and beinoan
their wrongs, but I shall never. The captions may while away their time in
prescribing punishments for transgressing the moral laws, but I shall place a
more charitable construction on these trivial and universal faults. Fanatics and
bigots, conscience-bound, may insist on strictly observing the letter of the law,
but I with the light of reason consider it sounder policy to limit its literal signin-
cation with modifications adapted to the occasion, Others less enlightened may
exile happiness and sunshine out of life and groan under pangs of self-torture for
the atonement of moral transgression, but I will scorn such Pharisaical holiness,
lead a temperate and contented life and hopefully await clemency at the final
judgment. All hail the day when sophistry and scrupulosity will succumb to
sound philosophy and reason! Blessed are those who enjoy suiiicient common
sense and courage carefully to seek the well-being and guard the interests of
mmzber one." This is, in brief, the philosophy of CHARLES WILLIANI WEBB.
I-Ie is a native of Allentown and is strenuously opposed to everything averse to
its best interests. The only child of fond parents, he is, as might be anticipated,
a spoiled boy. Like the impatient and solicitous infant, he fancies all goodies are
for his exclusive enjoyment. He even entertains the 'belief that his fellowmen
were created to serve as bumping-posts to satiate his superfluous animal spirit.
Notwithstanding these oddities " Ikey " is a genius. He always makes brilliant
recitations and without previous preparation. This peculiarity may perhaps be
explained by his natural affinity to books. For whenever one falls in with " Ikeyu
if he looks carefully, he will always espy a book. Our friend is very exact in
speech and will be a lawyer.
" Think not cards my chief diversion
'Tis a wrong, unjust aspersionf'
This gentleman is sorely vexed and considers himself cruelly abused by
various slanderous, unduly exaggerated or false reports, which have lately been
circulated among his friends in regard to the nature of his recreation. Keenly
realizing the trying ordeal of safely withstanding the public gaze and the great
weight and lasting influence of popular criticism, he has donned his costliest
robes and best mask for this impression. That his appearance on this occasion
may not be marred by any refiections on his character, he is solicitous to correct
such vilifying rumors, to justify his course to those misinformed, and to exonerate
himself of all guilt. He therefore earnestly beseeches that the following he very
carefully considered 1
I, MERVIN JONAS XVERTMAN, seeking the well-being of all and entertaining
malice toward none, would timely warn all sedulous busybodies to refrain from
wagging their tongues too assiduously, and from plying their trade too
industriously. Give also heed that you be not bearers nor heralds of false rumor,
or you will reap the whirlwind. Especially do I warn those defaming my fair
name and disgracing Amy noble vocation by greeting me as faro-king and
desecrating my hallowed abode by denominating it " Monte Carlo,', immediately
to cease their slanderous assaults on my honor. If such do not strictly heed my
admonitions, I will forthwith consign them to Orcus and to the mercy of the stern
judge and there will be " weeping and gnashing of teeth." A
We would advise all such who are engaged in spreading these malicious
reports, to be wise and speedily to amend their waysg for these imputations are
utterly groundless and the righteous wrath of our friend is boundless. If not
excessively abused he is innocent as the lamb and a kind friend. He is a young
man of rare accomplishments and exceptional talent. The future promises much
for him. -

The keynote of ORLANDO SASSAMAN YERGER's life may be struck by study-
ing the word devotion in its various phases. This trait of character is peculiar to
most of the inhabitants of his native town, Perkiomenville, Pa. According to
his own words, this characteristic resulted from a tendency inherited from his
ancestors, and from the influence of his associates. While at college, his studies
form the principal object of his devotion. With these he begins to tension his
mind in the gray of the morning, and does not permit it to relax until midnight.
He considers it a grave wrong to be found without a book. Loomis's Calculus he
has styled his wade merzmz. He does not even occupy his bed without either hav-
ing a book for his pillow, or hugging it at his side, or using it for a foot-rest.
Occasionally he binds these receptacles of ancient and modern lore into a bundle
with a pair of old suspenders, which were previously fastened to the end of a
stick. This he slings across his shoulders and starts for the mountains, deeply
contemplating and seriously meditating. About every three weeks he manages
to release himself from his studies in order to spend a short time with his parents,
and a longer time with his friends. Then it is that his feelings of ecstasy and
rapture cause him to leap wildly about. Then, too, he begins to eschew his studies.
Then he gives himself wholly to one sweet and charming soul in Perkiomenville.
None other can hope to occupy so lofty a position in his noble mind, not even the
Belles des Chambres of Hotel Muro, New York. He expects to enter the min-
istry, for which none other is better fitted. He is sincere and earnest in his
work, of a mild disposition, loves to do what is right, and is beloved by all. From
present indications we may safely predict for this young man 9, bright and glorious
" He is in logic a great critic
Profoundly skill'd in analytic g
He'd undertake to prove, by force
Of argument, a manls no horse g
He'd prove a buzzard is no fowl g
And that a lord may be an owl."
Be not afraid, timid reader, this man 'can do you no harm. Although of
frightful mien and loud speech, he is not able to vindicate his intentions. His
chivalrous display of dehance forebodes much, but will end in mere show and
emptiness. This man of many threats and fruitless promises is ALVIN EDWARD
YOUSE. In argument he would be shrewd. He proceeds on the presumption
that all men save himself are fools and ignoramuses. He stickles and makes much
ado about nothing. If by chance he is opposed, he threatens to prove all his
assertions both mathematically and logically 3 but on the plea of the total ignorance
of his opponents of such abstruse subjects, he always begs to be relieved of
employing such methods, He vaunts himself on his keen analytic and discrimi-
native faculties, and pretends to draw very Hne distinctions far beyond the
comprehension of ordinary minds. Although the subjects on which he displays
his skill are numerous and various, trivial and weighty, the question of the origin
of man holds first place and calls forth his best efforts. The Darwinian theory is
defended with great ardor and stubborness. He claims with absolute certainty,
that Adam was an orang-outang, and that in his modern descendants many of
the characteristics of the Simiae are noticeable. Evolution is claimed to be plainly
evident in the whole order of animal life, and he considers himself the highest
state thus far realized. This hot-headed controvertist is adenizen of New
Jerusalem g not the heavenly city, but some obscure village in the backwoods of
Berks County. With these comments on the eccentricities of the gentleman, We
would wish to add with all seriousness that he is earnest, studious, talented,
serious-minded and will become a minister. '

N the month of April Muhlenberg College sustained a severe loss in the resig-
nation of Prof. Philip Dowell, Ph. D. Dr. Dowell has accepted an appoint'
ment i11 the U. S. National Museum, at Wasliingtoii, D. C. He was born at
Attica, Ind., December 3, I864, removed to Galena, Ill. in 1866, where he was
raised on his uncle's farm and attended the country public school. He entered
tl1e preparatory department of Augustana College, Rock Island, Ill., in the Pall
of 1876, and graduated as A. B. in 1885.
In the Spring of 1889 he acted as assistant in biology at Augustana College,
and during the following school year he taught commercial branches in Augustana
Business College. In 1890-QI he taught elementary science in Hope Academy,
Moosehead, Minn. In the Fall of ,QI he entered Yale and took up science
subjects in the Academic Department of Yale College. In the following year- he
went to the Shefheld Scientific School of Yale University. In the Fall of 393 he
attended the University of Nebraska, then returned to Yale and graduated from
the Scientific School in 1895 as Ph. B. In '95-6 he acted as assistant in biology
at Yale, and continuing his studies, received the degree of M. A. in 1896. He
was Professor of Natural Science and Mathematics in Upsala College, now at
New Orange, N. I., in 1896-7, and at the same time studied biology in Columbia
University. Many of his Summer vacations were spent in teaching children's
scl1ools among the Swedish people and in collecting plants. The Summers of '96
and '99 he spent in study at the Marine Biological Laboratory at Wood's Holl,
Mass. He began his duties as the Asa Packer Professor of Natural and Applied
Sciences in the Fall of 1897.
He came to us well prepared and highly recommended, and during his com-
paratively short stay with us had endeared himself to all the students. He was
aithorough professor, and every young man who was privileged to study under
his tutelage felt thoroughly repaid for his efforts. His wide knowledge, not only
of subjects, but also of teachers and men noted for their proficiency in special
departments of learning gave him many advantages which other professors lack.
He was a profound scholar, a model citizen, a faithful Christian and the
entire community together with the student body, deplores his removal from our
midst. His work has been taken up for the present by Rev. John A. Bauman,
Ph. D., and John Lear, A. M., M. D.
Another Symphony in Stone.
BY Rev. GEORGE C. Loos, '9.1.
ERTAIN famous buildings may be considered typical of special features
which they possess. Thus the most imposing building in the world is the
Coliseum at Rome 3 the most distinguished, Vvestminster Abbey, London 5
the most notorious, the Tower of London, the most romantic, the Alhambra,
Granada, the most ornate, the Milan Cathedral, the most revered, St. Peter's
Church, Rome 3 the most awe-inspiring, the Roman Pantheon, the most nearly
perfect, architecturally, the Campanile at Florence. But the most wonderful, all
in all, is the Cathedral of Pisa-"a group of buildings without a parallel?
Pisa, a quaint Italian town of twenty-seven thousand inhabitants, is situated
on both banks of the Arno, and is surrounded with an ancient wall pierced by six
gates. It possesses many points of interest even for the casual visitor, notably
several fine bridges, a botanical garden, and a famous university which boasts of
a library of one hundred and tweuty thousand volumes. But to the tourist the
centre of attraction is the venerable pile in the Piazza del Duomo, or Cathedral
Square. This includes the cathedral itself, the baptistry, the burial ground, and
the leaning tower. The group is singularly situated in the suburbs of the town,
and not in the centre, Where we would expect to find it.
The greatest interest attaches, quite naturally, to the leaning tower. This is
the bell-tower of the cathedral, standing at some distance from the cathedral
building. It is a hollow cylindrical shaft, one hundred and seventy-nine feet high,
and fifty feet in diameter, with walls thirteen feet thick at the base. It is an'
architectural gem, constructed in seven stories, entirely of marble, each stage
except the lowest surrounded with an open colonnade. The building, begun in
II74, was completed in I35O, and is a monument to the genius of its architects,
Bonanno and W'illiam of Innsbruck. Within the tower hangs a peal of seven
large bells. The view from the landing at the top is fine, including in its sweep
the town and surrounding country, the Mediterranean Sea, the mouth of the
River Arno, Leghorn, and the Apuan Alps. ,
The remarkable feature of the tower, however, is not its chaste architectural
beauty, but its terrifying divergence of thirteen feet from the perpendicular. As
the visitor approaches the town on the train, and his attention is called for the
first time to the cathedral buildings, the tower seems to be tottering to its immedi-
ate fall, and one almost expects to hear the crash of its crumbling walls. To an
observer standing at the base on the side toward which the building leans, and
looking up at the careening mass of stone above him, the effect is startling, and
the thought comes to him that although the tower has stood at just that angle for
six and a half centuries, it might topple over now g and tourists, in the course of
their inspection, are often seen to hurry somewhat incontinently past the over-
The appearance of falling is increased as the observer looks down from the
platform at the top. When he rnusters courage to peep over the railing he sees
himself apparently hanging in mid-air, for the wall, receding beneath him, is
entirely invisible, and his first act is to give a gasp of nervous astonishment and
then crouch back against the wall, lest his weight so near the edge upset the
teetering mass into the plaza below.
It is a question much discussed whether this deviation from the perpendicular
was intentional or accidental. The building rests on piles driven into boggy
ground, and the best authorities have concluded that the south side sank in course
of erection, and that the upper stories were added in such a way as to keep the
centre of gravity within the base line, This conclusion is confirmed when the
visitor notices that the gargoyles, or water-spouts, on the north side are inclined
from the horizontal to the same degree to which those on the south side are
Galileo, who was a native Pisan, and some time professor in the University
of Pisa, took advantage of the tower's Obliquity to experiment on the laws of
gravitation. The desire for independent research in this sphere seizes even the
most dilettante as soon as he overcomes his apprehension of falling. This scien-
tific spirit occasioned one experimenter a rather thrilling experience. Miss Edith
Swain, the person alluded to, herself publicly tells the story :
"Recalling that during his investigations into the laws of gravitation Galileo used to drop
different weights from the top of the tower, I had a fancy to do it, too, and so test my ability to
estimate the exact height of the structure. Unfortunately a brilliant idea had seized me when
I nrst thought of making the experiment, I bought a box of small torpedoes, such as are used
during the Carnival, so that I could time the fall by the report. I tremble to think -what might
have been the consequences had I been able to find big torpedoes, like those sold in America
for the Fourth of July. Choosing a time when I was alone on the tower, and no one was in
sight below, I dropped a torpedo, watch in hand. At this instant a friar came hurrying around
a corner, and, by direst chance, his shaven crown passed directly below me just in time to be
struck by the falling torpedo, which exploded with appalling effect. I do not know what the
poor man thought-perhaps that it was the crack of doom. He was fearfully upset, and so was
I. The torpedo was too small to do more than frighten him, but his amazement on looking up
and seeing me peering down at him in open-mouthed horror, like a gargoyle come to life, was
excruciatingly ludicrous. I forgot to time the report. And thus ended my nrst and only
experiment in physics."
A personal experience may here not be out of place. The guides say that
the best time to ascend the tower is at sundown, when the surrounding plain is
bathed in the glory of the setting sun, and the Arno Hows to the Mediterranean
a river of flame. I therefore decided to wait until the sunset hour. The local
ecclesiastical regulations, however, prescribe the closing of the tower at six o'clock,
which, in summer, is some time before sunset. At two minutes before that hour
I presented myself at the door for admission, but was curtly told by the door-
keeper that the tower was closed. We palavered awhile, badly mixing our Anglo-
Saxon and Romance languages. Finally, however, on the exhibition of a hand-
ful of copper, and the promise to hurry, I was allowed to enter. The top is
reached by one hundred and ninety marble steps ascending spirally inside the
wall. As I bounded up these steps, two at a time, wondering whether Galileo
had ever gone up in that L'lUCllgIllHECl style to find the center of gravity, I became
conscious of a curious phenomenon. For a few steps the ascent would be as
laborious as climbing a ladder, then would come the comfort of walking on a level
floor and then again the labor of climbing. The steps seemed in a most extra-
ordinary manner to rise and fall. " Has my tiff with that rascally doorkeeper
thrown my co-ordinating faculties out of gear? H thought I, as I settled down to
an apprehensive walk, "or is this reeling tower at last toppling over? " But it
was neither. The angle at which the tower leans southward so modiiies the rise
of the steps that at the west wall they seem all but perpendicular, whereas on the
other side they are nearly level. The peculiarity is quite marked, and it is
especially noticeable when one ascends rapidly.
The Campanile at Pisa is not the only leaning tower in the world. There is
one at Venice. Bologna has two, the Garisenda and the Asinelli, both of which,
because they are older and have a greater inclination, are even more startling than
that of Pisa. The fame ofthe latter arises from its beauty, history, and enviromnent.
The second of this group of buildings is the baptistry. Like the bell-tower,
and in accordance with ancient ecclesiastical custom, it stands apart from the
cathedral structure. As its name indicates it is the building in which baptism is
Competent critics have pronounced this baptistry the most elegant structure
of the kind in Italy. In design, in wealth of detail, in execution and hnish, it
is a marvel of beauty. The building is constructed entirely of marble, in the
form of a circle one hundred feet in diameter. It is of Gothic architecture and is
surmounted by a conical dome. Its erection was begun by Diotisalvi, in II53,
but it was not completed until I278. Standing directly in front of the cathedral,
thus symbolizing baptism as the initial ceremony of the Church, it rises to the
height of one hundred and eighty feet, massive in fact, but in appearance so light
and graceful that it seems scarcely to touch the ground on which it rests. With-
in, a magnificent marble baptismal font, the work of Guido Bigarelli, is placed
directly beneath the dome, near it, resting on seven columns, is the famous
hexagonal pulpit, built in 1260, the masterpiece of Nicolo Pisano. Eight mighty
pillars and four pilasters support the roof of the building.
The unique feature of the baptistry is an amazing echo, which is only less
remarkable than the inclination of the leaning tower. The custodian of the
building exhausts his English vocabulary with the sententious words, "Fine
echo," and walking to the baptismal font he sings in a mellow, musical tone the
single note : Do ! There follows a moment of absolute silence,-just long
enough for the listener to remark that the note sounded thin and piping in the
cavernous depths of the building-and then, from far up among the curves and
corners of the roof, the sublimated note sounds fortn again, weak at first, but
growing in strength until it rings out in full volume. An angle catches and
reechoes it 5 the two notes in like manner become four, the four eight, and so on,
quartette, octette, double octette, until it seems as though a very multitude of the
heavenly host were singing forth from the celestial choir lofts. The note swells
and vibrates in the spacious building for an incredibly long time, and then gradu-
ally softens away into silence.
The guide once more lifts his voice and sings, in succession, the four notes of
the major chord : Do l Mi ! Sol l Do ! and now the effect is even more astonish-
ing. As before, the notes are swallowed up in silence, and then, again as before,
they ring out, gathering strength and volume, not one tone in unison this time,
but four notes in harmony. The music swells in volume as each nook and corner
adds its chord, and then, by some astounding acoustics there is added 311 echo of
the original notes one octave lower, two octaves lower, until the very building
seems to vibrate with the lowest tones of a cathedral organ. Louder rings the
music, deeper tones forth the invisible organ, until, after one great burst of
melody, the sound gradually subsides and dies away.
The music of the great organ in Westminster Abbey ills the building with
a pervasiveness that is awe-inspiring, but of undesigned effects nothing that I
have ever heard is so thrilling as the echo in the baptistry of Pisa.
Thethird of this remarkable quartette is the campo santo, or burying ground
founded in 1203 by Archbishop Ubaldo de Lanfranchi. An Italian Gothic struc-
ture surrounds the cemetery as with a Wall, one hundred and thirty-eight yards
long, fifty-seven Wide, and forty-eight feet high, built according to plans of
Giovanni Pisano, and consecrated in 1278. Within the quadrangle formed by
this building isa vast cloister containing round-arched windows adorned with
elaborate tracery. The pavement of the corridor is laid with tombstones, many
of vvhich were originally in the cathedral. Here repose the bodies of many famous
artists and ecclesiastics. The Walls of the cloister are of special interest, being
covered with famous frescoes by painters of the Tuscan school during the four-
teenth and Hfteenth centuries. The enclosure also contains monuments of Roman,
Etruscan, and Mediaeval design.
The campo santo is in a special sense 'tholy ground," for it is illed with
fifty-three shiploads of earth brought by Archbishop Ubaldo from Mt. Calvary
at the time of the crusades
Ecclesiastically the most important building in the Piazza is the cathedral
itself. Amid other surroundings it would be, with its fine paintings, frescoes,
sculptures, and especially its history, an object of studious and reverent inspec-
tion. As it is, it receives but scant attention from the tourist.
The edifice, founded on the site of the palace of I-Iadrian, is of Tuscan-
Romanesque design, in the shape of a Latin cross. It vvas erected according to
the plans of Boschetto and Rinaldo, and was consecrated in I 118. In 1595 it was
nearly destroyed by fire, but was subsequently restored. The building suffered
severely in the various Wars which the doughty Pisans waged against their
Genoese, Venetian, Luccan, and Florentine neighbors in the struggle for com-
mercial and political supremacy. So much, indeed, did it suffer that many of its
richest art treasures have been either entirely destroyed or much mutilated.
Externally the cathedral is plain, except as to its beautifully pillared West
front, but Within, it presents a vvealth of historic and artistic attractions. Sixty-
eight Roman and Greek columns, captured in War by the Pisans, support the roof.
The tvvelve altars were built by Pietra Santa, after designs ascribed to Michael
Angelo. The high altar, of marble and lapis lazuli, is rich and ornate. Fine
altar pieces by Andrea del Sarto, Lomi, Passignano, and other artists, are pre-
served. In the choir are beautifully-carved stalls. Some remarkable mosaics in
the dome and apse are the Work of Cimabue. One of the original great bronze
doors, representing tvventy-four scenes from the life of our Lord, still hangs in the
south transept, having until now outlived fire, wars, and age.
Thoughts of Galileo Hash through the mind as one enters the building, and
there, sure enough, in the nave swings the very bronzelamp Qby Battista Lorenzij
the oscillation of which gave to the great physicist his first idea of the isochron-
ism ofthe pendulum. It was at Rome that he was formally obliged to recant
his views reallirming the Copernican system of astronomy : there is no connection
between the solar centre of the planetary system and the principle of the pendu-
lum 3 but as one watches that slowly swinging lamp, he almost imagines that he
can hear the words which, as Galileo rose from his recantation, he is said to have
muttered, " EjjZl7' sz'mz10wc"' Cstill, it does niovej.
The guides tell us that there is a completely furnished roof garden on the
cathedral. Whether there is really such an adjunct, whether it is "completely
furnished," as roof gardens go in our own country, whether the strenuousness of
Pisan devotion prescribes or permits such relaxation, and whether the uninitiated
are admitted to this novel retreat, are points concerning which we are not informed,
In this cathedral convened in I4o9 an ecumenical council to adjust a schism
which had rent the Church since 1378, caused by two rival claimants to the papal
see. The convention deposed both of the rivals, Gregory VII, or the Roman
line, and Benedict XIII, of the Avignon line, replacing them with Alexander V 5
but, as neither withdrew, the world beheld the spectacle of three Popes at one
time, each hurling anathemas at the other two.
I have called this wonderful group of buildings a symphony, and so, indeed,
it is-a composition of four independent parts, but with an inner relationship so
harmonious that it appeals to the eye as the masterpieces of music appeal to the
ear, charming, soothing, satisfying.
A visit to the Duomo of Pisa is like a dream of fairyland. Away from noise
and smoke, away from hurry and turmoil, away from jostling crowds, away from
incongruous surroundings, it stands in its architectural perfection under the smil-
ing Italian sky a dream of beauty, and one from which, happily, there is no rude
It is, indeed, " a group of buildings without a parallel," reckoned as one of
the modern seven wonders. And no wonder I

Some Problems of the Present and Higher
BY THE REV. J. F. oHL, MUS. D., '71.
Q2 fa! .29
N passing from the Nineteenth to the Twentieth century the world left behind
a century of vast changes in economic, social and religious conditions.
These changes, whilst in many ways affecting civilization as a whole, have
been especially marked and rapid in our own land,
Perhaps the first thing upon which the mind fastens in contemplating the
progress of our own country is its marvelous material development, made possible
by steam and electricity, and the application of machinery to every form of
industry. These forces have in much less than a century put into operation more
than 19o,ooo miles of steam and n1any additional thousand miles of street railway 5
opened, peopled and developed immense stretches of new territory, built up
thousands of manufacturing establishments and hundreds of citiesg and increased
our national wealth from less than two thousand millions in 1820, to the fabulous
sum of over eighty-one thousand millions in Igoo.
The forces at work to bring about this development have also completely
revolutionized conditions, and have thrust into the foreground a multitude of new
problems that still await solution. This is especially true in the izzriusirial and
C077Z77ZE7'6'Z'LZ!WO1'ld. Industry is no longer individual and muscular, but organized
and mechanical. The factory has taken the place of the small shop 3 machines do
the work formerly done' by hand, and do it much faster and better, capital, and
the facilities which only large combinations of capital can create, are driving the
small competitor out of business, ownership and control are beginning to be the
privilege of the few 5 and thus it comes that, in the main, but two classes of bread-
winners are left-wage-givers and wage-earners. Nor are the relations between
these two classes always cordial. The more arrogant capital is, and the more the
wage-earner feels himself reduced to the condition of a dependent, the wider
becomes the breach and the greater the mutual hostility.
In the wage-earner this feeling is, moreover, intensified by the thought that he
is not receiving his just proportion of the accumulating wealth. He reads, on the
one hand, of the rapidly growing fortunes of the favored few, and on the other, of
the comparatively meager wages which organized capital and necessity compel him
and thousands of his fellow-toilers to accept. He hears of the extravagant
luxuries of those whose wealth he is helping to create, but also of the miseries of
the multitudes of men and women whose long hours of wearisome labor and
inadequate pay scarcely suffice to give them and their children an existence. He
sees, again, how trusts and monopolies in their unrestrained exercise of power, and
for their own enrichment, arbitrarily fix prices and enhance the cost of living,
while his earnings remain unchanged. And in view of these things he comes to
the perfectly legitimate conclusion that a grave injustice is done him. Whilst the
average condition of employees is beyond question better in this country than in
any other, it must not be forgotten that the increasing intelligence of the masses
is also producing increasing wants. Realizing, however, that these wants must
too often remain unsatisfied, that he finds it year by year more difficult to increase
his income beyond a moderate fixed amount, and that the gulf which separates
his condition from that of the capitalist is steadily widening, it is not surprising
that the wage-earner is manifesting a growing spirit of unrest and discontent.
The same forces that have wrought changed conditions in the industrial and
commercial sphere, have also brought about changed social conditions. Organized
industry is making civilization congregate. The forces at work in the industrial
world are building up the towns and cities, and the more rapidly population is
centralized in these, the more serious becomes the social problem. Wliere
heterogeneous masses-often composed of many nationalties-are brought together,
the process of assimilation is slow g where population becomes dense land-values
and rents increase, where the latter is the case, the home gradually disappears
and the poorer classes are forced into the unsanitary and oftentimes demoralizing
tenement 5 and the more the home is broken up the weaker become those
influences which, next to those of the Church, make for right manhood and
womanhood. The poverty, the filth, the disease, and much of the vice and crime
of large cities are no doubt in a very great measure due to overcrowding. Nor
are only the poorer and more helpless classes exposed to the enervating influences
that are always found in large centres of population. The appeals to the senses,
the lust for gain, the contagious materialism of the times, the almost complete
surrender to commercial interests, the love of luxury-these and many other
influences, found in their most intensified form in the cities, are to-day operative
on a large scale to enfeeble their moral life.
lfVe are, therefore, prepared to find that, with the centralization of population,
ybolifztal and relzlgiozzs conditions have likewise changed, " Machine " government,
"boss" rule, and municipal corruption, with all the evils these entail, have
become the festering sores and the crying shame of many of our American cities,
and through these of some of our greatest commonwealths g Whilst statistics show
that as cities become larger the number of churches and communicants becomes
relatively smaller. Thus it is evident that in these spheres also there are
influences at work, which, if not checked, will subvert the very foundations upon
which a nation can alone hope to have an enduring existence. '
In this connection it is also to be observed that notable changes are taking
place in modes qffhozzgbi and belief We are living in an age of investigation and
of scientific research. The deep mysteries of nature are looked into as never
before, and the problems relating to God and man are discussed with renewed
vigor. Unfortunately, however, the present trend is to deal with the latter
precisely as with the former. Science, not faith, lays hold of revelation, puts up
its question marks, and rejects everything that seems to be beyond the cognition
of reason or the possibility of demonstration. And this spirit has made itself felt
in many pulpits, has invaded many institutions of learning, is reflected in much
of the literature of the day, and is beyond doubt powerfully influencing popular
thought and belief.
Now a review of these conditions suggests numerous questions. W'hithcr are
we drifting? How shall these problems be solved? What are tl1e just relations
between capital and labor, between the wage-giver and the wage-earner? What
readjustments must be made to give each his equitable portion? What restraints
must be put both upon organized capital and upon organized labor, so that each
may remain within proper bounds and serve the highest good? Wliat will
ultimately result from a still more extensive organization of industry and a still
further concentration of wealth? With cities rapidly becoming the dominating
factor in our national life, what will be the outcome if present tendencies in these
continue unhindered? Where must their political purification begin? What
rnust be done for their social and religious betterment? How may the doubt and
scepticism of the day be removed, and revelation again come to be held in proper
reverence as the authoritative voice of God?
These and many other questions of like import sustain a very close relation
to the question of higher education. For their proper solution it is, therefore, of
vital importance that those who will sooner or later occupy prominent stations in
life, and who will help to shape policies and public opinion, should be familiar
with the movements, problems and thought of the day, study them in all their
bearings, and come to right conclusions. The college or university that fails to
make ZlflZ'7Zkf7Zg men, and whose chief aim is to impart a training that can in the
shortest possible time be converted into material gain, has departed widely from
the high ideals of past generations of educators. Those trained in such schools
are not the men to influence and direct the thought and doings of others along the
highest and noblest plane, because they themselves have not risen to it 5 nor can
this plane be reached by any whose thinking and doing are not governed by the
precepts of Divine revelation. Hence the importance of the Christian element in
higher education. Men must learn to view the many economic, social and
religous problems of the present from the standpoint of the New Testament.
Here they must look for those principles, which, having first molded their own
thinking and doing, will enable them to mold the thought and actions of others.
And to bring these principles and the problems of the day into close and proper
relations-this is a part of the mission of the Christian College. May the day,
therefore, never come when these hunibler institutions of the Church that have
given the land so many men of high character and noble power, will no longer
existg and may those that have departed from the old standards and ceased to be
specihcally Christian come to learn again that the true Wisdom is not man-made,
but that it cometh from above.

HEN the noise and the toil of the battle of life
Have ended, and closed is the day,
Then I put down the cares and burdens of strife,
And hastily speed far away. .
On the wings of the light evening breezes I go
Over mountain and valley and plain,
And I live a new life in the realms of the air,
Till the world calls me back again.
The light of this life is the silvery moon 3
Ill beauty, majestic and rare,
It floods all the earth with a radiance calm,
And blots from the mind every care.
All sorrows are hidden, all pains are laid by 5
There is naught that the eye doth behold
Save that which is beautiful, peaceful and still,
Like a dream that is left untold.
Most wonderful castles I build in the airg
And down through their hall sublime
Sweeps the brilliant array of the heavenly spheres
On their niarch from the portals of time.
I know that ere long these castles so fair
Must crumble and fall in the dust 3
That back to the labor of every-day life
My wandering thoughts will be thrust.
But the soul will be strengthened, the body renewed
And each weary task in the day
'Will be lightened and cheered by the vision untold
That I saw in the heavenly way.
And perhaps some companion on life's weary road,
Bowed down by his burden of grief,
May see with my eyes those beauties so fair
And from cankerous cares find relief.

REATER MUHLENBERG is bound to come. The movement has as-
sumed such proportions that final success can be predicted without a fear
of failure. Already a tract of land, consisting of fifty acres, has been
purchased in the western part of the city of Allentown, and everywhere, on the
territory from which Muhlenberg draws its students and receives much of its sup-
port, the friends of the college are busy organizing for the purpose of prosecuting
the work of collecting funds for the proposed new buildings, Recent meetings of
representative business men, in many parts of our territory, give assurance of
ultimate success to the movement to place Muhlenberg on a footing commensurate
with its present work and future possibilities. Failure can come only through
the unfaithfulness of those who claim to be the friends of the institution.
The plan outlined by the Board of Trustees is a comprehensive one. After a
full and thorough consideration of the subject in all its bearings, the Board
unanimously decided to secure new and larger grounds, and adopted a compre-
hensive building plan, which will eventually result in the erection of a dozen or
more different structures for the use of the institution, and establish an ideal
As soon as the funds shall warrant, the beginning will be made in the erec-
tion of the most necessary buildings. These will embrace an administration
building, generous in size and modern in all its appointments 5, dormitories, built
on what is known as the cottage plan, now adopted by the best equipped institu-
tions as most suitable for the health and comfort of the students g a gymnasium
and athletic grounds g and such other buildings as may be found necessary in re-
moving the institution to its new home.
The matter of collecting funds for this new enterprise is making encouraging
progress. The friends of the college have already subscribed E32,000, of which
the alumni have subscribed fQOOO. The Alumni Association is at work in the
effort to secure a 550,000 building fund for the erection of an Alumni Hall, which
it is aimed to make the students' center of attraction and convenience on the new
grounds. If this statement reaches any of the alumni who have not yet given
their pledge toward the securing of this fund, it is an invitation and a request to
send in their subscriptions as soon as possible. The present is the time to help

MUFFLED footstep sounds upon the path g
A stealthy hand is laid upon the door 3
An old man, whitened by the snows of years,
With restless footsteps moves along the floor.
He stops, he listens, and a look of fear
Creeps o'er the quivering lips and pallid brow 3
He knows that it is Death who for him waits-
Ay l even at the door is knocking now.
lVith trembling voice he asks who stands without.
Deep silence. Then the answer comes in tones
That to the mind suggest some chilling clime
Vxfhere Sorrow reigns and ceases not her moans :
'Tis Death who stands without your door and knocks
To call you far away from friends and home g
This is the work I do from day to day
As through the broad expanse of earth I roam."
In pleading tones the old man begs him leave
And call again some more convenient day :
A noble work I have in mind to do
That shall relieve the burden of life's way,
And bring sweet peace to many a weary soul.
Within my thoughts a thousand kind words lie
That I would scatter broadcast, ere I go,
To ev'ry aching heart that passes by.
In dreams Ilve heard a melody divine,
And in my waking moments, too, it Hoatsg
Some day I'll group the scattered chords in time
To form a song like heaven's sweetest notesf'
Nay I Nay ! " the cold, relentless voice replies g
" Thy years were passed in dreaming of things great
No trial made in small things day by day.
Thy plan of action cometh now-too late." '
So when our days pass by,
Devoid of good or ill,
XVe'llf1nd, alas! too late,
That wasted life consists
Not only in a life of active sin,
But in neglect as well.

Q99 vg Q29
EARLY all young men who enter a college have a purpose in view, a desired
goal, a high ideal. As a number of persons meet in social intercourse for
the first time, many different views and opinions are discussed. Many
debates and controversies are held in the beginning, but after a time entire
One of the duties of a Freshman Class is to select a motto-a Word, words,
phrase or sentence-which shall serve as a stimulus to greater effort and urge a
student to do his duty to his professors, his classmates, and himself. ,
This motto should contain elevating, ennobling and inspiring words or
thought which aims to make the moral, physical, and intellectual standard as high
as possible. Many are the words and ideas which can be used for such a purpose,
and yet more could hardly be expressed in three words than in these, "Virtue,
Knowledge, Industry." Many evil influences tend to turn the course of an
individual. Some of these approach him openly and swiftly 5 others secretly and
stealthily. If he is not fully prepared to meet, cope with, and overcome these
varied forms of temptation, he will surely fall into one of the many snares and
pitfalls laid in the path of the student. If he sees "Virtue" constantly before
him, as it were, in letters of gold, and strives to conform his life to the golden
rule, many of these alluring vices and subtle deceptions will not mar the beauty of
his character 5 for he will be enabled to withstand the onslaughts of these chang-
ing forms of error. The constant practice of moral duties will surely bring
During his college career a man desires a clear perception of what is right
and wrong 5 what is a truth or an untruth 5 what is fact or mere theory 5 what is
in harmony with progress and advancement or what hinders them.
" Knowledgel' is gained in many ways, but earnest and faithful self-application
and self-reliance bring their- well-merited recompense. Many kinds of knowledge
are acquired, but with " Virtue ," as a guide the seeker can easily ascertain which
leads to improvement and excellence of character, and which to degradation and
impoverishment. Witli " Virtue and Knowledge" We have enormous powersg
still these are of little avail if we do not remember and make use of the third word
of our motto, " Industry,"
It is the hard work of a person which brings erudition and drives away
hurtful and injurious tendencies. We can only obtain knowledge by paying
constant attention to a required work so that our diligence becomes continuous
and habitual, and not lax and intermittent.
Armed with "Virtue, Knowledge, and Industry" we can go through our
course, take up our intended vocation, pass through the mazes of life, overcome
its difficulties, surmouut its obstacles, and approach our graves feeling that our
lives are not a failure.
Those who have very high ideals and standards may not reach their wished-
for goal, nevertheless they will climb much higher than those whose hopes,
aims, and ambitions are merely to exist and be Of slight service to their fellow-
mortals and themselves, When their life-work is done, and they look over the
past they will realize that their success was due in a great measure to " Virtue,
Knowledge, and Industry. "
A FATEFUL RIDE.
N truth, the fourth day to the last
Of the second month, is memorized g
For on this day the lot was cast
VVhich fates our college higher prized.
In its dark and musty halls, at noon,
Trustees and the Faculty assembled,
Only to seal the old walls' doom,
Vvhose sentence some had cancelled.
Then up they rose, both old and young,
To take a memorable leave g
'Which will be held in future song,
A sign that they would more achieve.
Eight prancing steeds, four to a sleigh,
In pompous style, bore them away
For a half-l1our's ride along the ray
The bright sun sheds at close of day.
To prove this site they all had come g
If it might answer to their needs g
If here to move they'd he at one g
If here they might do greater deeds,
Vxfhen nothing had escaped their view,
The apt Trustees thought it would do g
And the Faculty consented, too,
Being anxious for the buildings new.
Then home they went with hearts content,
Building castles in the air g
For IIOVV they were quite confident,
That Fan1e's dear scroll their names would bear
A Few Stray Thoughts About Books.
NE of the great events in life is to fall in love with a good book. It is an
influence which will permeate our bodies. It is a teacher that will help,
comfort, guide, inspire and refine us. It is a friend who may always be
trusted, and who will lift us out of our selfish world and open new vistas of
thought, and take us to a higher, calmer and wider world. It may be a biography
which introduces the reader to an humble person who reached the pinnacle of
fame because he never failed to do his duty. It may be a history which reveals
the movements and destinies of nations which have long since been forgotten. It
may be poetry which lifts all common things on a higher plane and causes music
to emanate from our daily surroundings. It may be a book of science revealing
to us the depths of profound researches. It may be a religious work which will
draw us nearer to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe.
Disraeli in his "Curiosities of Literature " tells us that every good author
appears to have a predilection for some favorite author, and contends that these
advantages preserve the taste and elevate the sentiments to the standard of the
adopted model. Demosthenes delighted to read Thucydides. Scipio Africanus
was inspired by reading Xenophon. Voltaire often referred to Racine. Milton
was frequently reading Homer. Leibnitz was so familiar with Virgil that he could
repeat whole books from memory. It is not necessary to confine ourselves to one
author, but it is absolutely essential to consult only the most reliable authorities
and read the best books.
No matter to how great a height a man may rise he inevitably bows to the
guidance of some other mind. But what is his selection? We have books and
books which reveal to us the choicest thoughts of master minds from the remote
ages to the present time, but the first selection which all persons should make is
the Holy Bible. After that, all desire to read sensational and degrading literature
will gradually disappear and the individual will eventually have his mind as clean
as his body. ' i

E 'VE come from North, from Sou
To plant our banner here g
Beneath its folds we seek the best,
No future will we fear.
We love our Profs. and all the fellows,
But We would join the fray,
And give our Class an impulse grand
Along a nobler way.
We hadto struggle very hard
To push ahead thus far 3
But courage, and hope and zeal
NVould us from naught debar.
VVe 've had some Latin and some Greek
Their keys, and Sciences,
And now we 're ready for the year
That ends our fleeting course.
What others did that we will do,
Being moved by strong desire.
XVitl1 courage high and purpose true,
We 've hearts with zeal on ire,
Though oft we falter, oft we fail,
There 's hope for him who tries,
And those who help themselves will all
Be helped to higher rise.

The Seniors' Characteristics, with
Q3 U99 '29
OTE.-Pursuant to a resolution passed by the Faculty, urging such an im-
portant vvork, and the solicitous request of the Senior Class, the CIARLA
Board has seen ht to publish the following statistics. The Work has been
accomplished at a great expenditure of time, labor and talent, and that it con-
stitutes an invaluable contribution to the world of letters passes Without a doubt.
As the Seniors now leave these classic halls to render their mite to the World of
action, the value of preserving these characteristics and facts in printed form in
the archives of the college, and spreading them broadcast over the reading world,
must be only too apparent to all.

AS TO A FRESHMAN.
FRESHMAN lone, without a mate,
Grew tired of n1ilk and working late.
Oh my I" said he. " How much I miss,
Since I 've no darling here to kiss.
I 'll seek a maiden, mild and fair,
And have her soothe my withering care.
My Bessie dear won't find it out,
For home and here are far apart.
Come, soul of mine, let 's go to meet
A lassie's soul on her lips sweet."
Then up he sprung and donned his clothes
And left his room to End a Rose.
He crossed the hall, he cleared the stairs
Witli one great leap, a foe to cares.
Hamilton Street gave him a way,
What house a stay, we dare not say.
For short was the stay and cruel the way
In which dear Rose retorted, " Nay."
But not abashed, he turned and left
To seek another place of rest.
He tried a second, tried a third,
But each employed the iirst one's word.
Then ,ueath his teeth he uttered words,
'Worse than one hears in drunken crowds.
A big police, who just stalked by,
This raging Freshman chanced to spy.
Said he, L' You rogue, I 'd have you fear
The laws and regulations here."
Now thereupon he seized the kite,
And held him in his pocket tight.
Then to his Captor in reply,
A Freshman lone," said he, " am I.
Responsibility ls the fact
VVhich authorizes me to act g
But lacking this go to your 'dad ',"
The big police said to the lad.
Away he scampered in his glee,
For innocence had set him free.
But now sweet tones his soul inspire,
That emanate from some church choir.
He enters there, resolved to see
Those without whom he can not he.
Since, of the week, the seventh day,
Euterpe spent to teach a lay.
A number of her daughters, true,
Had gathered there to learn the new.
At his intrusion they all shrieked,
Beyond all measure being piqued.
Their flashing eyes and stern commands
Made him confess what were his ends.
In reverence and greatest awe
He hid his face from them awn.
Then on his knees, to them he said :
Prithee, do spare this wretched head,
God knows I came to church to-night
To seek a refuge in my plight."
They pitiecl him and bade him go,
'Where little boys are free from woe.
He took the hint g he left the place,
And sought his bed with quickened pace
But ere this lad his sleep began,
He wept, and ceased, and wept again.
Oh what a fate this Freshman had I
His trials made him raving mad.
So, ladies, please do have a care
That you may not a Freshman sear.
Please treat him nice, although you see,
That he 's as green as green can be.

B95 229 Q5
A peach is good, an Apple is better,
So I give my love to the latter."
So says l
Presume hin1 to be a lover of nature,
Presume him to be of Indian descent,
And the gods will praise your presumption
Mincing she was, as is a wanton colt,
Sweet as a flower and upright as a bolt."
Don't I look quite pretty ? " '
VVell, we think you do,
When you with smiles dispel your frowns,
And cover up your head.
In a desert place, like seers of old,
He often finds retreat,
To think how he may to the fold
Lead Wayward politicians.
To follow foolish precedents and wink
W'ith both our eyes is easier than to think.
A swelled headf' someone hath said,
He truly doth possess,"
But we're inclined 'bout this to think
That learning makes him blink.
A balanced head and patient mind,
In him we pleasingly do find.
For money, zealous g in athletics, bold 5
Are qualities about him told.
Another one of the H Fat Men's Club,"
Wlio lives in joy and glee g
To eat, to drink and then grow fat,"
The motto seems to be.
" Hei ho diddle," he plays the fiddle,
And sings in sixteen sharps and flats.
Nature was here so lavish of her store,
That she bestow'd until she had no more."
Phoebus Apollo, in a woman's voice,
Transacts his business with the boys.
LIN D13:NsT1aU'rH :
Noble thoughts inspire his mind
To be the greatest of mankind.
It is his strong and last conclusion,
That seeming wise is mere delusion.
A peaceful man who ne'er was seen
In fights that long in vogue have been.
He mourns the fact with deep regret,
That no Cl12l1'lCG came to him to wed g
So in the H Lab." himself consoles,
Dissecting various flies and worms.
A man of ease who fails to seize
The golden moments as they pass.
In the " Gast Haus " he sits with a smile,
VVhere enjoyment and pleasure his hours beguile
This man who needs no mention by name
Has got for making verse some fame.
With his touching and polished orations,
I-Ie'll reform the rake and enlighten the nations.
A business man with lib'ral views,
XVho common sense in life doth use.
In humble obedience, with signs of devotion,
He flatters the great for the sake of promotion.
Quite free from selhsh acts,
Since seldom he acts " Weisleyf'
Soon, soon, death's rival he will be,
Causing distress where all was peace and glee.
His face does not belie his appetites,
Which mournful strains alone can satiate.
Born unto trouble as the sparks 'ily upwardf,
A votary to fond desire."
Rarely do we see combined
Such graces as in him we find.
Scattering incense to his sweetheart,
Dreaming of her night and day g
Sighing for her in her absence,
Thus he whiles his time away.
HEI LM AN :
KU RTZ :
He dreamt one night he lost his mind,
In the spiral of Archimedes g
So he groped and worried
Till his chum came hurried,
And freed his head from his trousers.
He is a lad who would not take
A ride upon a pony,
For fear he might his honor break,
And ride above his Crony.
He's sought for and called for by maids four,
Nor does he reluctantly answer 5
For Cupid the archer shot deftly.
If the heart of a man is depress'd with cares,
The mist is dispelled when a woman appears.
An inexperienced money lover,
Full of whims and freaks all over g
Can we know with what great ease
He will be sailing Latin Seas?
VVhat does it matter, to heaven I go,
YVhether goodness I seek or the pleasures belowg
I am predestined a saint lo be,
And that is why I jolly appear."
Of things that this short life concern
To him 'tis pleasing to converse Q
In company or where'er he is
Human nature is his theme.
This bulky form awaits reform
In politics and college tricks.
The whistling Parson of his class,
In tricks he loves his time to pass 5
The ladies think him awful nice,
Since he can make those " goo-goo " eyes.
A man of steady habits, who seldom gives a smile
And has an utter disregard for things that are vile.
He writes, as it were, shorthand g
And speaks, as it were, longhand.
His Wide experience of human hearts,
His kind and pleasing ways,
Prepare him well good truths to tell,
And for a parson's place.
SCH r.oT'rmz :
SMITH, A. L. .
SMITH, C. A. .
A type of Puritanic zeal,
Who rather suffers than not do right,
'With stentorian voice he still doth noise
His own philosophical views.
He boasts that Indian blood is in his veins
But doing this is taking needless pains.
He claims to be a poet born,
Although his muse is not yet soarn 3
S0 we must wait a little longer,
Till his fledgling wings grow stronger.
Nothing too great for his mind to grasp,
Since he made a trip to the moon.
A man of books, yet he's no grind 3
And full of fun that relieves the mind.
His daring boldness in athletic sports
Has won him the princely name " Bismark
This massive figure lacks control
Of the impulsive inner self:
In merry sport he wastes his time,
And spends his precious pelf.
A youth once full of musical charms,
With which he drowned the ladies' frowns
Elated, he tumbled down the stairs
And thus lost all his musical airs.
Who sings his lovely lays
To please and cheer his lady fair,
Till come the nuptial days.
Nimble as to hands 3
Shifting as to feet g
Reckless as to action,
But quiet when asleep.
This mirthful lad our respect commands,
Who views the tricks of other hands g
He giggles a11d vvriggles,
When something tickles,
Till the source of laughter ends.
An easy prey to Cupid's darts,
'Who having dined for the kitchen starts,
On the pretense the news to read,
But the real motive-to court the maiil.
How lavish nature sometimes is
That adorns a head with crispy tufts.
For him do all the maidens mourn
Since he vowed a life of celibacy.
Regardless of the gold there is,
His self to him a kingdom is.
With broadest smiles
He soon beguiles
The prettiest girl in town.
An idol of the fairer sex,
With whom he grossly trifles.
His modest ways and dreamy eyes
Do scarce betray fanatic strifes.
A modest man, quite fair and tall g
Plump things l1e loveth best of all.
A pretty figure he does cut,
When he is on the stage Q
And proudly feigns the actor's skill,
And imitates a sage.
He is indeed a wonder
In drawing girls' pictures,
In Writing verse on the " Gast Haus,"
And telling funny stories.
His gifted mind to him doth tell
The kind of bean when he sees the shell.
He is up to date, the girls relate,
In iickleness and tasteful dress.
A modest lad of slender frame,-
But what of that? What's in a name?
Is it an ape? In truth 'tis not a man, A
Methinks the missing link 5 he apes mankind
Some Goldsmiths were fond of wine,
But this one's relish is fish.
To dance all night and sleep all day
Doth seem his sole ambition.
In words, in deeds, in battles,
Unparalleled, he stands.
Lightning, outdone in speed,
Does envy him indeed.
RENTZHEIMER : "
RPITER, H. :
SH ERER :
To enhance his looks and show good tastes,
Money, time and care he wastes.
He tips his hat to all the girls
Whom he has ever met.
O classmates dear ! Let'ssay no grace,
For Bacchus told me to my face
That gods would only hold it dear
From Freshmen, when they yet Could steer."
A hot foot-bath the best has been
For chills and fever outward seen."
So mother thought-how could she know-
lt was champagne that flushed him so.
Deliberate in actionsg skilful in athletics g
And is quite an authority on various statistics.
Him the spur, ambition, goads,
To bear a hundred million loads.
Deep horror fills the hardest heart,
XVhen this tragedian plies his art.
Lest Hymenls bliss he'd have to miss,
Early in life, he chose a wife.
In Hercules he finds his prototype 5
Yet, like the weakest, yields to Aphrodite.
A gossip " Rose " securely set
Amidst the joking thorns,
Should you aspire to hear the noise
You'll know it by its voice.
Supple and flexible as Indian cane
To take the bend his appetites ordainf'
He advocates and feign would seek the golden mean
But in attempts to charm, he leaps o'er the extreme.
This shining star beyond a doubt
Has made a good beginning g
But now the question seems to be,
Can he really " hold it out?"
Busy and active, he's not a man of ease,
liut like a bachelor, himself Hnds hard to please.
His looks and form do not betray
A sign of human greatness:
Wl1e11'ei' his pipe inspires his mind,
He tries to make some verses.
GERN ERT z
Wl1at a freak ! Tis a human graphophone
That records and produces the faults of others
And yet .never sees its own.
There is a law that seems to be
Still true in human nature 3
Qualities, unlike attract, you see,
The Shorter seeks the Longer.
Be on the watch, boys, O11 examination day g
There may come again to your dismay
The funny man of the Sophomore Class.
Witli a high silk hat his head is crowned,
And with a cane he stalks around g '
'Tis best, when he comes, to turn him out.
Vvhen not at home, he's somewhere else,
The place you now may guess.
His manners are quite dignified,
His countenance quite grave g
His voice is like a parson's,
His heart not such that hates.
He's seldom in a hurry,
That is, he takes it cool g
He's a fiend at the piano
And at a game of pool.
A marked ability he has
In brewing silly jokes,
In boasting of the times he had,
The fun with some town folks.
He is a chap from down the " Lab."
Who thinks he's always sick.
A slim and slender being
That always craves for food 3
As yet he's undecided
What he in life should do,
He's brilliant in his books,
But shaky in his knees.
He rises late in theymorning,
He comes late to the class,
He answers late to questions,
And thus he's always late.
Quiet, unassuming, not offensive to any man
And tries to do his duty the very best he can.
It's hardly in a body's power
To keep at times frae being sour."
He is a lad who doth observe
Five things with greatest care :
How to eat and what to eat,
And why and when and where.
A man of tact and seeming might,
Whose burning eloquence doth 'strain
The rabble of the college halls,
From entlring upon bloody brawls.
He doth not always seein to be,
Like other " kids " you often see.
If Hunks were trumps,
NVhat a hand he'd have l "
Soleinnity and seriousness
Are stamped upon his countenance.
This booby boy plays basket-ball g
He loves the girls, and that is all.
He too belongs to jolly crowds,
And plays the tricks he can 3
But when some ill provokes his wrath,
He is a dangerous man.
From six to eight he trains his voice g
From eight to nine he curls his hair g
From this we then can plainlv see
How sweet and pretty he will be.
He holds it true thus far in life,
That Mrs. jupiter was Iupiter's wife.
This boisterous youth delights in class
To imitate a pig or ass.
For us 'tis needless you to tell,
That our " brother does real well."
I am a Freshman, I am g
I am stylish, I am g
I will be a preacher, I will 5
I come from Reading, I do g
And have some pretty girls too.

His destiny on some far distant mission field

THE RIUHLENBERG XNIILL.
Confessions and Reflections.
55 I-IEN I returned to college there was quite a number of things which
engaged my mind. Resolutions are all right, if they are good, and if
you have the backbone to keep them 5 but somehow or other I gener-
ally lose sight of them when they become several weeks old. One morning, while
my chum was bumining in other rooms, keeping some industrious boys from
studying and telling them what a fine time he had had the evening before, I un-
consciously began to reiiect upon the past. I was soon convinced that my life was
not perfect, and that there was still room for improvement. It also occurred to
me how I made breaks at social gatherings, and used to veX the ladies by im-
proper remarks. Thus, one of the first resolves I made was to become more
renned and popular. You might have then ridiculed the idea, but I was really in
earnest, and I think a close observer will notice now a slight change in my conduct.
" My room, too, assumes a different aspect. At home I used to say, ' What
is home without a mother? ' and here in college, I might say, ' Wliat is a room
without being beautiIied?' I am not entirely devoid of an wsthetic nature. I
am an admirer of the beautiful, but whether I always call that beautiful which
my chum does, is a question. However, suffice it to- say that I have shown
ordinary good taste in ornamenting our room. The bottles that were presented
to me occupy a prominent place. The pictures of my home and surrounding
regions are hung symmetrically on the walls. My chum's photo. and our girls'
photos. are arranged artistically on the niantel-piece. The puzzle suspended from
the chandelier makes a striking display. The furniture in our room is not quite
up to date, but it is perfectly comfortable. My laundry, in order to keep it out
of sight, I generally store up in my trunk till that is full 5 then I get it done up
again for further use. To save myself the trouble of making my bed, which I
also consider superfluous work, I keep the door of the alcove closed. Thus I
conscientiously can say that our room makes a good appearance, and some others
would do well if they would imitate me, or seek advice with regards to beautify-
ing a room.
" In regard to my habits, I am somewhat at a loss as to what to say. I think
that in some things I am better, and in others I might be worse. I rise regularly
in the morning between six and seven g then I take breakfast, and after my return,
I study until it is time for chapel, which I seldom miss. Besides, I can't see how
a sincere student can miss chapel. It is so relieving and consoling, and especially,
if you met with a sore disappointment the evening before,
" In recitation I still have to laugh when something out of the ordinary takes
place, or when something funny happens. I thought I had to split my sides laugh-
ing when that fellow rendered poetically, ffvmo 50114503 f1'z'fzz'5 !zwz'zl,' 'Juno bathed her
loose wool,' ' Hee ! Hee ! Hee ! ' I blurted right out in class, and thought at
once of an old sheep we had at home, which I often teased by hanging my hat on
the wagon-tongue when the old man wasn't at home. I might recall many more
laughable incidents, but I am not in a mood now to indulge in laughter. I might
add here, that I expect to reform when I come to the 'Seological ' seminary.
" I occasionally go out calling, and attend sociables. I have learned lots of
fine points from my chum, who is a typical society student. He is quite good-
looking and very popular among the ladies. He informed me that when I was
introduced to a young lady, I was to make a slight, graceful bow, smile gently,
and say, ' It gives nie extreme pleasure to meet you.' He further explained how
improper it was to call on a rainy day, to thrum the piano without being asked to
play, to handle bric-a-brac, to stalk around in the parlor, and study the pictures
and other pieces of furniture as though you had come to an auction, making pre-
parations to buy, to talk on disagreeable subjects, to move often to leave and then
sit down again, to remain after dinner or after supper, to turn your back towards
a lady, or to call on a lady who would rather not have you call.
" These pointers I try to observe when I go out. However, I remember just
now an experience when I disregarded instructions and as a consequence my plans
failed. Une Saturday evening I was in the best of spirits and resolved to go out
for a good time. I went up Walnut, and then up Fifth Street to Hamilton. Here
I began to look for opportunities, and quite soon there came along a charming
young lady. I stepped up to her without an introduction and escorted her home.
To my astonishment she received me very nicely, and along we went apparently
happy and gay. After a walk of some distance we came to her home, and my
heart fairly began to leap for joy when she said, ' My friend, just remain here in
front for a minute. I have to enter the house in the rear, then I will let you inf
I then concluded that I was exceptionally fortunate in meeting this obliging and
entertaining young lady, and that students must be after all privileged characters
among the ladies. But during all these fond reflections the door was not opened.
Then it occurred to me that she might first set the furniture in order and fix the
hre for it was a bitter cold night, and I was becoming very cold. I rapped at the
door, and softly called her by name, but no response came 3 not even a sound was
heard. I waited patiently for some time, when on a sudden I came to my senses
and left. I never said a word to anybody, but pondered these things in my heart.
" When I came to Hamilton Street the church clock peeled forth the eleventh
hour, and remembering that the ninth hour was just complete when I had left, I
readily calculated the time occupied in this singular experience. A few days
before this my chum asked me whether woman or man was the more revengeful.
Since I had then declined to answer his question, I resolved to go to college and
answer his question on the spot. I also imagine that his experiences are such as
will give him sufhcient reason to ask questions of such a nature. Now, there
goes the chapel bell I 'I A 'A WISE FOOL."

SLY PASSERS OF BOOTY.
IAXHEIMER. ' YOUSE,
Jolly Jim at the Basket-Ball Game.
OLLY JIM happened to board at the same place as some students, and had a
peculiar aptitude to catch on to college slang. One of the boys succeeded in
inducing him to take a ticket for the basket-ball game, and the following is
his description of the game :
"I entered the Lyric Hall in good time. The Hrst thing that struck my
attention was the great cage. By Golly ! that's a big cage, I said to myself, and
then I asked a student wearing such an all-rounder, whether some noted species
of the Quadrumania type were on exhibition here. He looked at me in astonish-
ment and said, 'This isn't a menagerie, you Ninnyhammerf ' Well, you huffy
lobster, I want to know its objectg I paid twenty-five cents to get in here.' He
told me then that the game was to be played in the inside. ' Great Caesar ! ' I
exclaimed, 'basket-ball in a cage. By lingo! this game must be interesting, if
the players have to be fenced in.'
" I became very restless and wished the game to begin. In the meantime I
engaged myself in the studying of faces and characters of students as they came in.
Just then there entered two spooney and starchy fellows and upon investigation I
learned that both belonged to the Pedro Club. Then came a Friday-faced fellow
with his girl. ' Poor thing, ' I exclaimed, 'she has to do all the talking.' Then
entered a crowd of tip-toppers, shock heads, dandies, with a beefy would-be
mouth-piece bringing up the rear. I was also informed that in college there were
all kinds of students, namely, foolish, half-foolish, half-rocked, high-falutin,
kiddyish, mouth-almighty, obfuscated, mealy-mouthed, kicksy sim, sappy, ram-
shackle, hare-brained, harum-scarum, gassy, dicky, maggoty, rhinoceral, and
above all, loonies and grinds. The hall filled up rapidly, and soon the time was up
for the game to begin.
" The signal of the whistle called forth the players into the cage. They had
the darntest clothes you ever saw. The umpire took the ball and tossed it up.
Chee Wis! you ought to have seen how the fellows carried ong how Crazy
banged the ball from one end to the otherg how they caressed each other with
one arm g how they fooled each other, evaded each other, tripped each other.
By Golly! they were foxy, and on a sudden, Ferblobtsei, one of the opposing
fellows, pitched the ball clean through a bottomless basket. Then some fellows
cheered, but the students were perfectly quiet. I being with the students sided
with them. Then they started up again. Dutchy hit the ball Hrst, and with all
possible fury they went for that ball. ' Kill lem I ' I shouted, ' By lingo I there
is no tomfoolery in this business ! ' Then another of their fellows tried to throw a
goal but failed. ' You woman,' I said, ' you had better practice a while.'
" In the meantime the ball was out at the other end, and Holy Smokes I Billy
threw a goal on the sly. Then we gave nine roars for Billy. I became spiflicated
and yelled out, 'Hurray for hurray I ' scarcely knowing what I was doing. What
the Hex I till the uproar had subsided we had another goal. 'Judas Molifitz I'
I said to a Wet Quaker, ' them fellows are but women to play.' The score of our
fellows went up rapidly and remained ahead. The time-keepers then signalled
that the first half was up. Be Japers I we gratulated our fellows and they had the
full confidence that they would win the second half.
" I then took a glance at the audience and noticed that every one was pleased
and happy. Hang it! if I didn't see that some leaned towards one side and
decidedly away from the other. They were such as had ladies with them to
witness the game and were completely taken in, as I judged from their smiles and
action. Hang it I if some wer'n't as soft and sticky as a half-baked molasses cake,
and upon inquiry I learned they were the society men of the upper classes. 'I
suppose the girls are only fooling the majority of fellows,' I said 5 as I was told
that good many get dished or get the shake. However, some get the rough edges
knocked off, and become more refined and fitted for society.
"The time for the second half was up, and in a moment the players were
ready for action. By George! our fellows gave it to them. They threw one
goal after another and we cheered like madmen. My throat became sore, but
Holy Gee I our yelling summoned a Cob in, who was trying to poke his nose in
our business. ' Crickets I ' I said, ' you had better looked after some other
things I You Fossil, we can take care of ourselves' just then one of their fellows
played foul. 'Holy Smokes! Gee Whizz I Hold on there you Lobster,' I said.
' Let the fellows be fair if they want to play-.' And Billy, Be Japers I pitched a
goal fair and square, tl1e ball coming right down on the soft spot' of a fellow's
cranium. At the close the boys went in with fresh energy. They reminded me
of Balziferous Baboons after a pumpkin. ' By chubsl' I said, 'they just had
things their own way till to the last.'
" In the heat of excitement I left the room. I felt all-overish. On the way
down the steps, a sappy town fellow wanted to bamboozle me, but I threatened
the confounded glumpish nincompoop with such a batty-fanging that he didn't
know himself for the following hour and twenty minutes. In regard to the game
I might say that I like it tip-top and were I a student, goose hang it I if I wouldn't
play like fury, although you sometimes get your brains shattered, faces gashed, or
nose smashed. By Golly I I could stand all that.

OFF FOR SOPH. BANQUET.
THE SOPHOIVIORE BANQUET.
.99 Q9 .92
H the Sophs. had a banquet alone,
And away. Did you know? Did you hear?
But the trip was so long, and the tale,
It is short : this small tale of their woes.
When decided it was by the fates
That of joys they should have none to air Q
What a calm recollection they share
Of the time they were gone for their feast.
VVhen the place they were choosing, it seemed
That agree they could not 'mong themselves.
VVhere their talents and fame would most shine,
NVas the town they would choose for their dine.
Had they followed the Juniors' path,
Xtfhich quite peacefully led to New York,
Vvith experience lighting the way,
What a wise class of Sophornores they I
But their own little brains wished to lead,
And a failure was all we'd expect.
Even Wilkes-Barre failed to impress
Their sly- minds g to the City of Penn
These dear Sophs. made arrangements to go.
VVhile prefering' to go to this place,
Their display of such cowardly fear
Gave the Freshmen a crown of renown.
Forsooth, quite important they felt.
Yet they cooped in Pete Leisenring's home
As small boys with no courage will do,
In the attic or cellar or where
The small courage of the Sophs. could find place-
So afeared lest a member be strayed.
There appeared not a reason for this :
Not a Soph. was molested at all g
For the :ioble-hearted Freshmen foresaw
The great weakness, anxiety and fear,-
And thus nothing therefore interfered.
It is evident that our proud Sophs.
Are but boys in whatever they do.
They did not much impress any one g
But were judged some wild truanls from school.
The hotel, chosen ere they departed,
Was not reached without some small mishaps.
Oh, how dignified they strutted inside
And how sadly their crests must have fallen !
For e'en here people doubted and eyed,
Till convinced 'twas our Sophomore class.
Yet proprietors and other Wise folks
Must needs act as their mothers would do.
Why then were restrictions laid down,
And instructions of minor detail,
As to wine, and the noise sometimes made?
Had they taken their guardians, too,
They would 11ot have been obliged to commit
A joint sin,-that of smuggling their wine
From a neighboring bar to their rooms.
Now the time for the banquet arrived g
And the Sophs. by Doc. Reno were led
To the board which was boldly spread
NVithout wine. In disorderly way
They took seats and then looked at each othei
While the waiters expected some one
To say grace.-Not a Soph. volunteered.
Wasn't this a deplorable state?
NVithout anything rattling their brains,
So boisterous did they become
That a waiter 1nust remind them of rules.
Now at half after midnight, what seemed
A clear climax to their feelings, was reached 3
When the lights were turned off and not all
Of the toasts had been given at all.
Some Sophs. were disheartened by this,
And Mr. Ritter who homeward was bound,
Took the Hrst of all trains that sped
From the city of Penn to Bethlehem.
But, Alas I even rains and the flood
Had conspired to let none of them boast
Of their banquet,-for Ritter had to walk
All the way from Bethlehem home.
This is all that can be said about the Sophs.
XVe will let others judge of their deeds.
XVe had often been wondering why
They hadn't a more laughing reply.
We see now, the poor children did learn
The sad lesson which comes when Sophs. try
To outdo those whom they should have asked
For advice in a matter like this.
NVe wise juniors are grave and polite g
And would willingly talk to the Sophs.
To these uniledged a11d innocent ones,
And thus teach how to appear in the world.

A Model Love-Letter.
The following, which was discovered while delving among relics of past ages,
we recommend to the Freshmen as a model love-letter, admonishing them, how-
ever, to be cautious in its use, for our modern fair damsels may not relish some of
its rather rustic comparisons.
DEAR ANNIE: Every time I think of you my heart flops up and down like a churn-
dasher, sensations of unutterable joy caper over it like young goats over a stable roof, and
thrill through it like Spanish needles through a pair of tow-linen trousers g as a gosling swim-
meth in a mud-puddle so swim I in a sea of glory. Visions of ecstatic rapture, thicker than
the hairs of a blacking brush, and brighter than the hues of a humming-birdls pinions, visit
me in my sluinbers, and, borne on their invisible wings, your image stands before me, and I
reach out to grasp it like a pointer snapping at a blue-bottle fly. NVhen I first beheld your an-
gelic perfections I was bewildered, and my brain whirled around like a bumble-bee under a
glass tumbler g my eyes stood open like cellar doors in a country town, and I lifted up my ears
to catch the silvery accents of your voice. My tongue refused to wag, and in silent adoration
I drank in the sweet infection of love as a thirsty man swalloweth a tumbler of hot lemonade.
Since the light of your face fell upon my life, I sometimes feel as if I could lift myself up by n1y
suspenders to the top of the church steeple and pull the bell-rope for Sunday-school. Day and
night you are in my thoughtsg when Aurora, blushing like a bride, rises from her saffron-
colored clouds g when the jay-bird pipes his tuneful lay in the apple trees by the spring-house g
when the chanticleer's shrill clarion heralds the coming morn, when the awakening pig
ariseth from his bed and grunteth, and goeth forth for his refreshmentsg when the drowsy
beetle wheels his droning Bight at sultry noontide, and when the lowing herd comes home at
milking time, I think of thee, and, like a piece of gum-elastic, my heart seems stretched clear
across my bosom. Your hair is like the mane of my sorrel horse powdered with gold, and the
brass pins skewered through your waterfall fill me with unutterable awe. Your forehead is
smoother than the elbow of an old coat. Your eyes are glorious to contemplate g in their liquid
depths I behold legions of little cupids bathing like a cohort of ants in an old army cracker.
VVhen your head lies pressed against my manly breast, the fire of your eyes penetrates my
whole anatomy as a load of bird-shot goes through an old rotten apple. Your nose is as perfect
as if carved from a chunk of Parian marble, and your mouth is puckered with sweetness. Nec-
tar lingers on your lips like honey on a bear's paw, and myriads of unfledged kisses are there,
ready to fly out and light somewhere, like bluebirds out of their parents' nest. Your laugh
rings in my ears like harp-strings, or the bleat of a stray lamb on a bleak hillside. The dimples
on your cheeks are like bowers in a bed of roses, or hollows in cakes of home-made sugar. I
am dyi11g to fly to thy presence and pour out the burning eloquence of my love, as thrifty
housewives pour out hot coffee. When I am away from you I am as melancholy as a sick rat.
Sometimes I can hear the junebugs of despondency buzzing in my ears, and I feel the cold liz-
ards of despair crawling down my back. Uncouth fears, like a thousand minnows, nibble at
my spirits, and my soul is pierced with doubt, like an old cheese bored with skippers. My love
for you is stronger than the smell of patent butter, or the kick of a young cow, and more selfish
than a kitten's hrst caterwaul. As a Songbird hankers for the light of day, the cautious mouse
after a piece of bacon in a trap, or a weaned pup longs for new milk, so I long for thee. You
are fairer than a speckled pullet, than a Yankee doughnut fried in sorghum molasses g brighter
than the topknot plunxage on the head of a Muscovy duck. You are candy, kisses, raisins,
ponndcake, and sweetened toddy all together. And if these few lines will enable you to see the
inside of my soul, and assist me ill winning your affections, I shall be as happy as a woodpecker
in a cherry tree, or a stage horse i11 a green pasture. If you can not reciprocate my soul-n1as-
tering passion I will pine away like a poisoned caterpillar, and fall away from the flourishing
vine of life as an untimely branch, and in the coming years, when the shadows grow from the
hills and the philosophical frog sings his cheerful hyinns, you, happy in another's love, can
come and shed a tear and c itch a cold upon the last resting place of
A SENIOR'S SOLILOQUY.

ELENTLESS time, in rapid Bight,
, Bringing for aye unceasing change,
With burning tears does dim my sight,
And fills my soul with feelings strange
The boys, the town, and all so clear,
IfVherein my consolation lies g
Can I leave these without a tear,
And smiling break the closest ties?
Through Latium and ancient Greece,
My faithful steeds me safely bore 5
But now they'll bring another ease,
And I will see them nevermore.
Here often I, with many a mate,
Met, Bacchus' feast to celebrate,
And thrilling stories to relate,
But now no more will congregate.
These old gray walls and classic halls,
Which have re-echoed doubly sweet,
My own sweet voice and loving calls
Will no more make my joy complete.
Alas I how can I leave this town !
The memories of four full years
Bind me indissolubly down,
For future joys Ell me with fears.
Boo-hoo l-How can I ever break
That dear attachment I have made !
For me it will my senses take,
From Rosalind to separate.
Oh, how my soul for her will long g
Oh, how my heart-strings break in twa
XVhen I can't hear her charming song,
And for her form will look in vain !
If misery thus will keep me noosed,
And of escape I'll find no token,
Then may " the silver cord be loosed I "
And " the golden bowl be broken ! "

NOTE.-The following brief, and incomplete, biographies of the members of our Class, are
inserted here at the importunity of our " Funny Man." He labored under the impression that
some particularly interesting characteristics of the subjects here represented were, intention-
ally or otherwise, omitted in the proper department in another portion of this volume. Thus,
in order to quiet this troublesome personage, who afhrms that he has not been accorded hisjust
deserts, we grant the desired request.-Edz'!01'-z'1z-Chiryf
HARRY E. BARNDT is a wild, whimsical sort of a fellow. At times inclined to be scrappy,
and knows how to make the chairs dance around him in German recitation. He has the knack
of answ. ring questions in silence. He claims " he is bright but does not study."
OLIVER R. BITTNER thinks he's funny, but he is11't. He has a habit Qwhich, quite likely,
he inherited from remote ancestorsj of sliding to your side and pouring into your ear some silly
and totally incongruous tale, and then walking away with a smile at his own foolishness. He
delights to engage in underhand tricks and practices. Goes to church and Sunday-school to
keep up appearances. Looks " shy " at girls.
FRANK CROMAN is the man who compels us to write this nonsense for his own amusement
He is a Sunday-school teacher when in college, an authority on any subject relative to sociol-
ogy, and acts as Dr. Wackernagels commentator. He is a jovial, pleasant, good-natured, pop-
ular fellow whom every one likes.
FRANKLIN T. ESTERLY is a fellow who likes anything they have in Peters X Iacoby's Ice
Crt am Saloon. To exercise his body, and free his mind from the cares and woriiments that
Physics and Calculus produce, he regularly takes an evening walk into " Beulah Land. l' He
has a reputation as an impromptu speaker and reciter.
JOHN B. GEISSINGER comes from the same place from which our Editorfin-Chief comes.
The difference between the two is, the former is a rustic, the latter a suburban. Has the habit
of calling everybody a 'P' Lobster " or "Slob." Goes calling with Shimer and has other bad
JACOB D. HEILMAN is one of the CIARLA Board's hardest workers. Tries to keep himself
from degenerating and still goes out with Leefeldt. Makes the business people believe that it
pays to advertise in our CIARLA. He is the superintendent of a Sunday-school,.and holds
various other responsible positions.
ERXVIN JAXHEHVIER comes from that Bethlehem in Pennsylvania and not from the one in
Palestine. As far as we know he is not related to any of the Jews. Is inclined to have many
girls, and sometimes shirks recitations to attend horse-races. The habit of coming late when
he does not know a lesson has become chronic. In the main he is an ordinarily Hue fellow.
EDWIN E. KLINE is a lad who does all sorts of trivial things to amuse himself. Inclines
towards law, and declines perceptibly from Greek. Received fl0.00 from Crilly to secure
the .college votes for his election as Mayor. He was also connected with other suspicious
schemes, which he asked us not to mention.
ROGER C. IQAUFMAN is a harmless creature. Likes candy, parties, women and Calculus.
Finds special delight in taking one particular girl to the basket-ball games. The elevating
influence he exercises on the " Parson " is quite noticeable.
MELVIN A. KURTZ is a fellow who Hts almost anywhere, whether in college or at home.
His business calls him home every two weeks. The place from which he comes is noted for its
long days and short nights. That is why he is so sleepy when he returns to college. He is a
fair and square man, but utterly detests wire-pullers.
EDXVARD G. LEEFELDT comes from the State xx here the Knit-kerbock ers lived. VVhether
he descended from that tribe is not known. At first sight he appears to be a silent and solemn
sort of a fellow, but becomes jolly when you begin to talk girls to him. In the main he is a
R. LGRENTZ INIILLER is a wonder in a certain sense. Has distinguished himself in debat-
ing on national subjects, and in writing humorous dissertations. Does not care a d-rn
whether he gets one Hunk or a hundred. It is difiicult to say whether he is a member of the
" Rogues' Gallery " or 11ot, but we do know that he is chairman of the Fat Menis Organiza-
PAUL J. NEFF appears to a stranger as though he was really a " Parson," but that is a
deception. If it were not for his dignified appearance and those qualities becoming a gentle-
man, he would at times be called to order in Dr. YVackernagel's recitations. He often vexes
Roger, whom he has somewhat spoiled. He is also notorious for the common sense which he
H. E. ORFF is generally known as " Governor." To him silence is golden. Goes fre-
quently with Brunner for a walk, whom he greatly admires as a political leader. To preserve
his health, he rises late, and shirks recitations. He abhors Physics and has no affinity for
AUGUST W. ROHRIG is named after Augustus Caesar, but has not yet attained to an equal
eminence. He sells books during the Summer and makes speeches during the XfVinter. Does
not care to attend balls, fancy dances, but delights in making calls on individuals.
XVILLIASXI H. B. ROTH is a man of small stature, but it is quality rather than quantity that
countsin this world. He likes to make Ioo in English and shake hands backwards with the
Governor. Has many adI11irers in the city.
ROBERT SCHLOTTER comes from Hellertown, where all the people are angels, as he hirn-
self claims. However, every one who knows this man is convinced that he does not yet belong
to that crowd-elect. Is Dr. YVackernagel's right-hand man, and assists in keeping the corner
lively. He and Teddy have telephone connection on the rear part of the platform.
IRVIN M. SHALTER is only a little man. The reason for this is, because too much energy
is needed to keep his tongue agoing. 'L Don't mind nie," he says, and we won't either. He
is the chief tool of the " Rogue's Gallery " to execute their foolish tricks. When hungry, he
loses all control of himself. Is an excellent quarterback, and jolly fellow. Generally passes
as " Irish."
HARRY W. SHIMER is a lad who took easily to the gaieties and frivolities of the city. He
dances, smokes the pipe and does many other had things Goes calling with Geisinger. Both
are in the habit of pocketing sandwiches when an opportunity presents itself. No etiquette in
that. Of late Harry is becoming quite graceful i11 delivering speeches. lVhy?
CHARLES A. SMITH is aigood mang that is, good in a sense that the police need not
concern themselves about his conduct when he is out. He has a sacred regard for truth,
justice and piety, but an utter disregard f.or " Fresh Preps." who seem to be an abomination to
his sight. His favourite song is, " Only One Girl For Me." He has become of late a noted
pet among the ladies.
ARTHUR L. SMITII is not an athlete but has distinguished himself by means of his literary
productions. Knows how to play chess, and especially checkers, with which he issaid to have
worked out his Analytics. Since we do not know anything bad about him, we are obliged to
say that he is a good man.
GEORGE W. SPECI-IT is a noted character of the third floor. lfVould sooner Hunk in
Calculus than miss a good time. Has a habit of praising anything whether it is good or bad.
Is perfectly harmless when alone.
CHARLES D. TREXLER. Nobody would conclude by simply looking HL this man that he
was the son of a preacher. llowever, we must make allowance for Charlie because he is yet
young. Did two good things since he is in college, taught a Sunday-school class one Sunday
and delivered a speech last Christmas. Shufiies his big feet over the floor when we are kept in
over time. Goes out calling with Schell, a Freshman, and does many other things, too numerous
IRA G. XVALBORN has gained a reputation as a librarian. In Dr. lfVackernagel's sits aside
of " Fatty " Miller, whom he punches in the ribs when he wants some fun. Is a member of
that nefarious gang to which Shalter belongs. His father gave up the project of making a
preacher out of l1in1. He is doomed to become a mechanical engineer.
JOSEPH M. YVEAVER, also known as fighting Joe, is known to have been in a hurry but
once, when the " Cob " was after him. Has his lessons down " pat." Studies to make a good
mark in German. Possessor of an uncontrollable tongue. Is funny and cracks jokes.
Natural Theology is his hobby.
CHARLES YV. VVEBB, better known as " Ikey," is a prominent member of our class. Has
secured a patent right to sit on a chair. Likes to get into scraps in which no one gets hurt.
Knows all about fancy boxing and fancy dancing. Is becoming of late bold and reckless in
speech and action
MERVIN J. XVERTMAN was a good Sunday-school boy when he came to college, but, his
close proximity to the "Rogues' Gallery" has dragged him down considerably. IfVanted
to take part in the parade on St. Patrick's Day but got left. Has a style of laughing that is
distinctly his own.
ORLANDO S, YERGER is a very conscientious man, but not when it concerns girls, Has a
girl here and one at home. Thinks long hair are becoming, Makes honorable flunks in Greek.
Is a bad man to scrap with. XValborn learned this when he was sent sprawling under Dr.
Wackernagel's desk. Has proved himself a worthy member of ,our Class.
ALVIN E. YOUSE. " Wait till my game comes, then you will see balloon ascensionsf' he
says. We surmise he means base-ball. Spends 111uch time in curling his hair. Does every-
thing at a 2.40 rate. Has a fatal faculty of making breaks at parties. For instance, he once
ate his girls' cake by mistake. Is neither offensive to the students nor to the profs.
