And what if there be no changes? The onward march and progress of human civilization would be at a stand- still, and would seem to have attained its coveted goal. So looking round about us we see a great arena in which the combatants are the institutions of learning, each striving to give to its students the best training possible. On looking more closely We see our own institution a con- testant striving to advance. One sphere of this advance is now visible to the eye, so that ere long farewell shall be said to the walls of " Old Muhlenberg" and those of a more modern and " Greater Muhlenberg " greeted. In consequence of this We decided to make our annual a memorial number to " Old Muhlenberg." It is how- ever not merely a history, but we have also tried to give to all those interested an insight of the life We spent here the past year. The task of gathering, and sifting, and shaping the material was indeed very difficult, but by continually trying and persevering, we have it in its present form, Which, as all mortal works, is yet imperfect. So after having tried to satisfy all, we now cast the burden from our shoulders into the stream of time and public approval and criticism. VVith these few remarks We present this " Memorial Volume " of the Class of 1905 to the Faculty, Alumni, students, and friends of Muhlenberg. Begging your leniency, I have the honor to be your most devoted and humble servant. THE EDITOR. I2 P'IUHLE BERG Colors: CARDINAL AND STEEL GRAY COLLEGE YELL: Flzz, FIZZY, FUZ, F1 Poo, ANTIPOO!

UHLENBERG has now for thirty-seven years been contending with the demand for higher education, from the same fortifications and with the same weapons, but as in modern warfare, inventions and changes have ' necessitated a change of former equipments, so has our institution been led to build new and modern fortifi- cations from which to fight this modern and increasing demand of civilization, So while, before another year has rolled by, this old fortress shall be no more, we have included here a full account of its existence, its staff of instructors, together with pictures of its apartments, especially such as were the scenes of the great contests of students with professors, and lessons and each other. This task was not so easy as many of the former instructors are scattered throughout the country While others are no longer sailing upon life's great ocean but have anchored their frail barks. In face of all this we tried our best and include the photos of all we were able to obtain, and such few as do not appear we failed to get. It is true some of this history has been published before but always in fragments, and we hope this volume will go forth bearing some pleasant messages both of the past and the present to all the sons of Muhlenberg who have once been under the shadow of her walls. If this is so our work shall not have been in vain, and we shall feel rewarded. i We are very sorry to have lost through death our respected, honored, and scholarly President, Dr. Seipg and we here also include an account of his life, his work for the institution, and his funeral.

UHLENBERG COLLEGE, Allentown, Pa., was founded in 1867, to meet a want long felt by many of the pastors and lay members of the Lutheran Church in Eastern Pennsylvania, where the Lutheran population is very strong, but where they had no institution of their own for the higher education of their young people. It was felt by many that a college under Lutheran control was needed, should be established, and could be maintained. The institution, therefore, is a Church School, but it is by no means to be regarded, 'on this account, as sectarian. It is a Christian institution of higher education, established and maintained for the Christian training of the young. Muhlenberg College, as at present organized, is the successor of the "Allentown Seminaryf' 1848-64, and " Allentown Collegiate Institute and Military Academy," 1864-67. The. College was named in honor of Henry Melchoir Muhlenberg, the Patriarch of Lutheranism in America. The course of study, adopted at the beginning of the history of the College, was like those of similar institu- tions at that time, and has ever since been maintained on a par with the best institutions of the State. As improve- ments have been made by our colleges throughout the country in raising the standard of admission and graduation. as well as in additions to the studies of the college course, so Muhlenberg has made various improvements in this direction so as to maintain its equality with other institutions of the country and maintain its rank in the educational progress of America. It now offers two courses g the one, the regular four years' classical or culture course, leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts, the other, a four years' scientific course, leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science. Its standard is equal to that of any of the institutions with which it is surrounded and with which it naturally comes into competition. That this is not an idle boast, but a well attested fact can be seen by an examina- tion of the catalogue of the College. A 1 The first faculty had as its head the Rev. Frederick A. Muhlenberg, D. D., LL. D. He was then in the prime of life, came to the new College with many years of experience as a successful teacher and with the reputation of being one of the best Greek scholars of his time. His high standing as an educator and a scholar gave at once a prom- inence and character to the College, which it has ever since maintained. He remained at the head of the institution until the close of the year 1876, when he was succeeded, in the Presidency, by the Rev. Benjamin Sadtler, D. D., another ine scholar and a successful educator. He remained until the close of the year 1885 when, disabled by a fall on the ice, he retired from the active duties of life, and was succeeded by the Rev. Theodore L. Seip, D. D., who assumed the presidency on January 1, 1886, after having gone through nearly all the departments of the College in the earlier years of his connection with the institution. Like the first President, he was an excellent Greek scholar, a man of wide experience in educational matters, a successful teacher, and endowed with excellent administrative qualities. Under his administration the College made its greatest strides forward, through his influence in educa- tional circles became widely known as a College of high standing and good conservative qualities, enjoyed an increase in the number of students, the amount of endowment and in financial solidity. The seventeen years of Dr. Seip's Presidency were the most successful years in the history of the College. So great has been the success that it has become possible and even necessary, for the future work of the College, to arrange for the enlargement of the College and the expansion of its equipment by securing larger grounds and more commodious buildings. His life was spared until the beginning had been made in this work of expansion, and he could participate in the laying of the corner-stones of two of the new buildings on the new college site. But in the midst of this new work he was stricken by the fatal disease that removed him from the scenes of his busy and active life of thirty-six years in connection with the institution whose affairs he so wisely and successfully administered during the latter years of his life. In view of the fact that the institution will in the near future be removed from its old location to the new grounds in the western part of the City, it may prove of special interest to give a brief account of the modest and unassuming building which has for more than a third of a century housed Muhlenberg College and which has become hallowed with memories of the past to the Alumni and friends of the College. The original building, in which the Allentown Seminary was opened in 1848, and which was afterwards remodelled and became the east wing of the col- lege building, was a large, double, two-story stone building, known as " Livingstone Mansion." It was surrounded by an extensive lawn on the south, a beautiful grove on the north, and by vacant grounds on the east and west sides. It was at one time the property of the Livingstones, relatives of the Allens, the founders of the City which bears their name. The two-story mansion served the purposes of the Seminary for several years 5 but in 1851 the number of pupils had increased to such an extent as to necessitate enlarged accommodations. Accordingly, during the sum- mer of that year, a new building was erected, which now forms the west wing of the college building, and is used as the residence of the President of the College. A few years later more room was needed, and in 1854 the central building of four stories, occupying the space between the east and west wings, was erected, and " Livingstone Man- sion " was raised to three stories. The several buildings thus united present a front of 130 feet and a depth of forty feet. After the property had passed into the hands of the stockholders of the college, in 1867, it was found neces- sary to alter the building to adapt it to the new arrangements, and to erect an additional building. Accordingly, an addition was erected at the rear of the central building, one hundred feet long and five stories high. ' The various parts, erected at different times, are thus united and constitute one building, four stories in front and Eve in the rear, with rooms for the accommodation of students, with a chapel, recitation, library, and reading rooms. In these con- gested quarters the work of the College has been carried on in the past. The new buildings on the new grounds will better accommodate the professors and students and will enable the institution to carry on its work more comfortably and still more successfully, Rev. Frederick A. Muhlenberg, D. D. DR. S. E. OCHSENFORD. EV. FREDERICK A. MUHLENBERG, December 31, 1876, was born at Lancaster, Pa., August 25 1818 and died at Reading Pa M h , , g, ., arc 21, IQOI. He was pre-eminently a child of the Lutheran Church and a descendant of distinguished ancestry. His great-grandfather was the Rev. Dr. Henry Melchior Muhlenberg the pioneer and patriarch of the Lutheran Ch h , urc in America, his grandfather was the Rev. Dr. Henry Ernst Muhlenberg, the distinguished botanist, and his father was Frederick Au t . M hl ' ' ' ' ' gus us u enberg, M. D., an eminent physician His mother was Eliza, granddaughter of the Rev. I. Helfrich Sehaurn, a Lutheran pastor laboring for many years in Pennsylvania. In 1833, after a preparatory D. D., President of Muhlenberg College September 1, 1867 to 39 training in the Lancaster County Academy, he entered the Sophomore Class of Pennsylvania College, at Gettysburg, Pa., at the age of fifteen years, but remained there for only a year. In 183 5 he entered Jefferson College, at Canons- burg, Pa., graduating in 1836. He spent the year 1837-38 at Princeton Theological Seminary, and after teaching for a time in a private academy at Lancaster, in 1838 he became professor in Franklin College, at Lancaster, Where he remained until 1850. In the same year he became the Franklin Professor of Ancient Languages at Pennsylvania College, where he soon distinguished himself as one of the foremost Greek scholars in the country. Wliile at Gettys- burg, in the year 1854, he entered the ministry, having been ordained by the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, and fre- quently preached in the College Church. In 1867 he was called as the first President of Muhlenberg College, established at Allentown, in that year, by a number of Lutherans and others who were deeply interested in the matter of higher education in Eastern Pennsyl- vania. After Hrst declining the call, he accepted it and began his labors on the first of September. He found his new labors most diflicult, but his untiring efforts, his distinguished scholarship, soon manifested themselves in the success which attended his labors and in organizing a college of which no one need be ashamed. -The beginning was made with inadequate buildings, with no money and no endowment and with a fevv students, several of Whom had -come with Dr. Muhlenberg from Gettysburg. The first faculty consisted of Dr. Muhlenberg as President and Pro- fessor of Greek, Mental and Moral Sciences and Evidences of Christianity g Rev. Edward J. Koons, Vice-President .and Professor of Mathematics, Astronomy and Physics, Rev. William R. Hofford, Professor of Rhetoric, Logic, English Literature and Political Economy, Rev. joseph F. Fohs, Professor of I-Iistoryg Rev. Hans N. Riis, Profes- sor of German 5 Theodore C. Yeager, M. D., Professor of Chemistry and Botany 5 Rev. Theodore L. Seip, Principal of the Academic Department and Assistant Professor of Greek, and Secretary of the Faculty. After nine years of hard and faithful and successful service at Muhlenberg, Dr. Muhlenberg resigned the presidency, in 1876, and accepted the Professorship of Greek in the University of Pennsylvania. He resigned this position in 1888 and resided in Philadelphia, engaging in church work and using his well-earned leisure in literary labors. In I8QO he removed to Reading, Pa., but in 1891, at the urgent request of many of his friends, he tempor- arily assumed the duties of the Presidency of Thiel College, Greenville, Pa., where he labored faithfully for two years, but then resigned and lived in retirement at Reading, until his death. But even in his retirement, he was not inactive, engaging in church Work. All who knew him were benehted " by his ripe Christian experience, his ripe- scholarship, his faithful attendance upon the means of grace, his active promotion of the Welfare of the Church and his never failing kindness of heart." 40 Rev. Benjamin Sadtler, D. D. DR. S. E. OCHSENFORD. A EV. BENJAMIN SADTLER, D. D., President of Muhlenberg College, january 1, 1877 to December 31, 1885, was born in Baltimore, Md., December 25, 1823, died at Atlantic City, N. I., April 28, IQOI, and was buried at Baltimore, May 1, 1901. Dr. Sadtler came from an old German family which had settled in Balti- more in the latter half of the eighteenth century. His parents were Philip B. and Catharine Sadtler. He graduated at Gettysburg in 1842, studied theology at the same place and was licensed to preach in 1844. He was pastor at Pine Grove, Pa., 1845-49, at Shippensburg, Pa., 1849-53g Middletown, Pa., 1853-565 St. John's, Easton, Pa., 1856-623 President of Lntherville Female College, 1562-76, and President of Muhlenberg, 1877-85, having been disabled by a fall on the ice. 41 He administered the aifairs of Muhlenberg with characteristic zeal and succeeded in steering the institution successfully through the trying years succeeding the panic throughoutithe entire Lehigh Valley. In 1886 he removed to Baltimore, Where he lived in retirement, though constantly engaged in contributing valuable articles to the periodicals of the Lutheran Church. In addition to numerous synodical appointments, Dr. Sadtler served as trustee of Pennsylvania College from 1862-1877, from which institution he also received the degree of D. D., in 1867. He published numerous discourses, historical, doctrinal and other articles. He was a scholar and Christian gentleman, Whose presence and bearing always inspired esteem and respect. Three of his sons have attained eminence as educa- tors. Prof. Samuel P. Sadtler, Ph. D., is one of the leading Chemists in America, and was for a number of years identimied with the University of Pennsylvania. A second son, Prof. Benjamin Sadtler, is Professor of Metallurgy and Mineralogy in the Colorado State Sohool of Mines, at Denver. A third son, Rev. William A. Sadtler, Ph. D., is Professor in the Theologiccl Seminary of the Lutheran Synod of Iowa, at Dubuque, Iowa. 42 IN IYIEIVIORIAIVI.

D. ' DR. S. E. OCHSENFORD. EV. THEODORE L. SEIP, D. D., was President of Muhlenberg College, from January I, 1886, until his death, November 28, 1905. Prior to his Presidency of the College he was Principal of the Academic Department and Assistant Professor of Greek, 1867-73 3 Professor of Latin and Assistant Professor of Greek, 1873-77 5 Financial Agent, 1876-775 Professor of Greek and Latin, 1877-ASI 5 Mosser-Keck Professor of Greek, 1881-86, and during his long and successful service as President, he was Professor of Greek, Moral Sciences and Evidences of Christianity. His administration of the affairs of the College was crowned with success in the increase of the number of students, the expansion of the courses of studies, the adjustment of the financial affairs of the institution and the substantial increase of the amount of endowment. And before his end came he could see the beginning of the new and enlarged buildings of the college on its new site in the western part of the City. His health began to fail a few years ago, but he remained active until the day he was stricken by the fatal disease that removed him from the scenes of his life-long activity. On Tuesday, November 24, IQO3, Dr. Seip attended to his usual duties, teaching in the morning and presiding at the weekly faculty meeting in the afternoon, and apparently as well as he had been for some time g but at night when about to retire he was stricken with apoplexy and shortly afterward became unconscious, in which condition he remained until the end. He now rests from his labors, but his works do follow him. In his death the college has lost one of its staunchest friends and the community one of its most eminent citizens. It affords us a melancholy satisfaction to be able to present to the readers of our annual the last words written by Dr. Seip. On Tuesday evening, November 24, shortly before he was stricken, he dictated a letter, his wife acting as his amanuensis, in reply to a request for a greeting from the college, to be used in the Christmas number of one of our Lutheran periodicals, expressing his regret at his inability to comply with the request. Before closing the letter, however, he directed the following beautiful sentiment on the subject of Christian Education to be added, having with his own hand written it on the back of an envelope, as it appears in fac-simile in this connection. We adopt this method of preserving both the sentiment and the form in which he left his last written work.

His ancestors came from Germany and settled in that part of Pennsylvania which is now embraced in Northampton County. His paternal ancestors served in the Revolutionary War and in the War of 1812. His maternal grand- father, William Henry Hemsing, came from Philadelphia and settled at Allentown, serving as organist and teacher of a parochial school. He married Margaretta Spinner, of Salisbury, near Allentown, and the newly-married couple took up their residence in Livingston Mansion, which now forms the east Wing of Muhlenberg College. Later they removed to Easton, Where the mother of the subject of this sketch was born, and where the son was also born. His STUDENT YEARs. The instruction of the schools, both public and private, which he attended in his native place and at Bath, Where his boyhood was spent, was supplemented by careful home training. At the age of sixteen he entered the 48 Weaversville Academy to prepare for college. The academy was, at that time, in charge of Professor H. F. Savage, a graduate of Amherst College, and a ine classical scholar. Under his faithful instruction the youth of sixteen was introduced to the study of Latin and Greek and laid the foundation of the thorough knowledge of the classics for which he has become so distinguished and which he taught so successfully to the end of his life.. The last hour he spent in his recitation-room was devoted to the teaching of Greek. In the year 1859, he entered the preparatory department of Pennsylvania College, at Gettysburg, and graduated from Pennsylvania College in I864. During his college course the battle of Gettysburg was fought. In 1863 he joined the college company, was mustered into service as a member of Company A, Twenty-sixth Regiment, Pennsylvania Volunteers, and served under Major General D, N. Couch until the company was mustered out of service. The spring vacation of 1864 he spent as a delegate in the service of the United States Christian Commission, in Tennessee and Georgia, having charge of the office and work of the commission in the hospitals in Murfreesborough, Tenn. After his term of service had expired at this place he was sent to the front, where General Sherman was fighting his way to Atlanta, and ended his service at Resaca, Ga., where he ministered to the wounded of both armies. After the expiration of his service, he returned to Gettysburg and completed his course, graduating with his class in 1864. In the fall of 1864 he entered the newly established Evangelical Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadel- phia. He was present at the opening of this institution and the inauguration of the faculty, being a member of the first class that received the full three years' course in the seminary. During the spring of the year 1865 he received an appointment as agent of the United States sanitary commission and was sent on a tour of inspection of the work and stations in the armies under Grant in Virginia. After the expiration of his term of service he returned to the- seminary, completed his course, graduating in June, 1867, and on the 19th of the same month was ordained to the Ofiice of the ministry in the Lutheran Church, at Lebanon, Pa. Hrs CoNNEcT1oN wrfrrr MUHLENBERG COLLEGE. Already before his graduation he was called to Allentown to aid in the instruction in Allentown Collegiate Institute, until the affairs of the institute could be closed, preparatory to the opening of the Muhlenberg College. He accepted this unexpected call and entered upon his duties, April 25, 1867, In May of the same year, he was elected principal of the academic department and an assistant professor of Greek. At the first meeting of the faculty he was elected Secretary, a position which he held until he became president of the College. He served as principal of the academic department until the year 1872, when he was elected professor of Latin, but retaining his position as assistant professor of Greek. During the year 1876-77 he acted as financial agent of the college, its period of greatest financial distress, and succeeded in arousing new interest for the college in th.e congregations of the Minis- 49 terium of Pennsylvania and in collecting many thousands of dollars for the impoverished institution, In 1877 Dr. Muhlenberg resigned the presidency and Dr. Seip became professor of Latin and Greek. In the year 1880 he suc- -ceeded in securing the endowment of the Mosser-Keck professorship of Greek and was elected to the professorship of the Greek language and literature, - Hrs PRESIDENCY. Dr. Muhlenberg was succeeded by Rev. Dr. Sadtler as president of the College. The latter served in this capacity until the year 1885, when he resigned and retired from the active duties of life. All eyes were now turned to Dr. Seip as the man best fitted for the vacancy, and in the same year he was unanimously elected to the presidency, assuming the duties of his oiofice January 1, 1886. Dr. Seip had helped to organize the College, prepare its courses of studies and had passed through nearly all the departments of the institution as an instructor. He, therefore, came to this new position as a well-experienced teacher, a finished scholar and an excellent disciplinarian. The wisdom of the board has been amply attested by the great suceess of the College during Dr. Seip's presidency, The courses of studies have been amplihed and improved, the numberof students has largely increased and the financial condition has been placed on a solid basis. Dr. Seip's fine scholarship has given the institution an excellent reputa- tion among other institutions of learning. To-day, Muhlenberg College is known as one of the best institutions of learning in the Lutheran Church in America, and is regarded by many as the representative Lutheran College. He lived' long enough to see the beginning of that expansion of the College for which he had been working for many years. Greater Muhlenberg has been made possible through his efforts, self-sacrificing labors and his wise plans for the best interests of the institution to which he gave his entire active life. Oursrna INFLUENCE. Dr. Seip was also active in bringing the College into closer relation with other colleges and universities of the conntry. In 1887 he was active in founding the College Association of Pennsylvania. I-Ie, was the hrst chairman of its executive committee and was continued in the office until he declined re-election. He was also, by appointment of the Governor, a member of the University Council of Pennsylvania, to which position he was re-appointed during the last year. Dr. Seip held numerous oflicial positions in the Church, as president of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, a member of the examining committee of the same body, and for a number of years the chairman of this committee. He was a delegate to the General Council for a number of years, and had again been elected a delegate to 1903 con- vention, having received the highest number of votes at the last meeting of the Ministerium g but failing health pre- vented him from attending the convention. He has written the history of the College for numerous local and more 50 general publications, also numerous articles for the periodicals of the church, especially the Lzziheravz and Clzzarcfr Reviewf History of the College Association of Pennsylvania, in 1887, one of the introductory articles in the Quarter-Centennial Memorial Volume of Muhlenberg College, published in 1892. Besides the usual academic degrees, Dr. Seip was honored with the degree of Doctor of Divinity by the Uni- versity of Pennsylvania in 1886. He was a member of the American Institute of Christian Philosophy, the Ameri- can Society of Church History, the American Society for the Extension of University Teaching, and other learned bodies. In his earlier years he took an active part in the work of these associations tending to advance the interests of education. A few years ago Dr. Seip made an extensive tour through England, France, Switzerland and Germany, visit- ing many places of interest, but paying special attention to the institutions of learning in England and on the Conti- nent. During the same tour he represented the Lutheran Ministerium of Pennsylvania at the bi-centennial of the University of Halle and took part in the ceremonies connected with that celebration. The nearest surviving relatives of the deceased are his widow, Mrs. Rebecca Cnee Keckl, two children, Dr.. Howard S., and Annie Elizabeth, three grandchildren and one brother and two sisters. Hrs Success IN LIFE, It is eminently ntting that reference should be made to the success with which Dr. Seip met during his busy active life of sixty-one years, thirty-six of which were spent in connection with the institution with whose entire history he was identified. The brightest pages of Muhlenberg's history are those that record the events of his presidency, the extensions of its influence, the expansion of its work, the soundness of its policy and the substantial increase of its financial support. All these belong to the seventeen years during which he stood at the head of the College. Eminent and successful as he was as president, he was no less eminent and successful as a teacher. I-lisa fine, polished and nnished scholarship in the classics and other branches taught in a college course, made him an interesting and successful teacher. As astudent under him in the earlier years of his career, the writer bears- cheerful testimony to the thoroughness of his teaching and the ability with which he handled every subject brought to his attention. He possessed the rare gift of inspiring his students with a love for the subject studied. As a teacher he occupied a prominent place among the best teachers of our state and country. A TRIBUTE or Esrni-aM. Closer than that of teacher, he occupied the place of an advisor and friend to the writer of this sketch. At an early period in his life brought into intercourse with Dr. Seip, and associated with him in synodical work as an oflicer of the Ministerium, and in college work as a member of the Board of Trustees for a number of years, and 51' latterly as a member of the Faculty, Dr. Seip became a close friend g and during all these years has always been found to be a safe advisor, a staunch friend, and a companion of inestimable worth. These words of praise are none too high for the man whose death we deplore, whose worth we eulogize and whose friendship we cherish. His place in this community and especially in the College will be hard to ill. But no matter who will take his place, his influence for good will long be felt in the completion of the work which he began. The work of Muhlenberg College, at its new location, will go on in the future and we hope with increased prosperity 5 but if Muhlenberg is to remain true to itself it will always bear the impress of the man whose whole active life was devoted to the advancement of a higher Christian education, How BEST TO APPRECIATE Hrs Worm. The members of our Lutheran congregations and the friends of a higher Christian education ought to show their appreciation of the self-sacrihcing and arduous labors of Dr. Seip for the advancement of true education in gen- eral and for the success of Muhlenberg College in particular, by coming to the help of the College at this critical period of its history, iniorder to participate in the realization of the wider influence and greater success for which Dr. Seip had been planning for years. Willirig hands and open hearts should be found everywhere on the territory of the Ministerium of Pennsylvania, among its one hundred and thirty thousand members, ready to come to the help of the College, to further the new enterprise upon which it has entered, and to assist in bringing about that success in the future which the College deserves. The College, through an inscrutable dispensation of Divine Providence, has been deprived of its executive and chief advisor. This happened at a time when the College could least spare his counsel and guidance. This is all the more reason why the friends of the College should rise as one solid body and come to its help, in order to prevent any injury to the success which the institution may have received from the death of its president at this time and, on the other hand, in order to aid in making the work of the College in the future even more successful than it has been in the past. FUNERAL SERVICES AND BURIAL. The funeral of Dr. Seip was held from his residence in the west Wing of Muhlenberg College on Thursday, Decem- ber 3, 1903. Hundreds of persons called at the home and paid their last respects, many coming from a distance. The remains presented a life-like appearance and lay in a handsome black-cloth covered casket, square with columns, with antique silver extension bar handles with a name plate corresponding. Upon the plate was inscribed i REV. THEODORE L. SEIP, D. D., PRESIDENT on IVIUHLENBERG CGLLEGE, ' Born June 25, 1842. Died November 28, 1903. The remains reposed in the handsome casket, draped in the robes of his office. The body lay in state from 9 A. M., until 1.30 P. M. During the morning a large number of visiting clergymen, prominent in the affairs of the Lutheran Church, and members of the Alumni of Muhlenberg College and graduates of the Mt. Airy Theological Seminary arrived and paid their respects to their former beloved preceptor and president. Many were deeply affected and showed the high esteem in which Dr. Seip was held. The services at the house were simple. In fact, the services all through were of a simple character. SERVICE AT THE HoUsE. The remains were surrounded by beautiful floral tributes. Some of the oierings were the finest ever seen at a funeral in this city. With all, however, there was an air of simplicity and dignity all which were characteristic of the lamented president. The service at the house was conducted by Rev. C. J. Cooper, D. D., Treasurer and Finan- cial Agent of the College. The College Glee Club sang a selection after which the Scripture lesson taken from the first Epistle of St. Paul to the Thessalonians, the first chapter from the first to the eleventh verses was read by the clergyman. After the brief services the casket was closed and the cortege formed for the services in St. john's Luth- eran Church on South Fifth street. Hundreds of persons had assembled about the College while the procession was formed. First came the family and relatives, followed by the Board of Trustees of Muhlenberg College. The latter were followed by the Alumni, the students according to their classes and then the clergy and friends of the deceased. The graduates of the Mt. Airy Seminary who are also graduates of Muhlenberg College, preceded the students in the order of the march. The different bodies met in the recitation rooms before the services began so that there was no confusion and the proceedings passed off with the utmost reserve, all of which were in perfect harmony with the tastes and wishes of Dr. Seip. The Board of Trustees of the institution met in the recitation room of the late President, the Alumni and students in the chapel and the clergy and friends in the recitation room of the Rev. S. E. Ochsen- ford, D. D. ' SERVICE AT THE CHURCH. The casket was carried to the hearse by the pallbearers who were all members of the Faculty of Muhlenberg College. Q They were Rev. William Wackernagel, D. D., Rev. john A. Bauman, Ph, D., Rev. S. E. Ochsenford, D. D., Rev. Jacob Steinhaeuser, D. D., Geo, T. Ettinger, Ph. D., William R. Whitehorne, Ph. D., and John Lear, A. M., M. D. While the remains were being taken into the church the organist, C. A. Marks, rendered Chopinis funeral march and to the solemn strains of the music upon the large organ the remains were taken up the main aisle to the chancel. The casket was uncovered. Inside the chancel were the officiating clergymen gowned in the robes of the 53 Lutheran Church. They were the Rev. F. J. F. Schantz, D. D., of Myerstown, President of the Evangelical Luth- eran Ministerium of Pennsylvania and adjacent states, Rev. Professor G. F. Spieker, D. D., of the Lutheran The- ological Seminary, of Philadelphia, Rev. G. F. Krotel, D. D., LL. D., of New York City, the editor of The Laik- cnzn, and the Rev. S. A. Repass, D. D., pastor of the family and St. John's Lutheran Church. The burial services, according to the ritual of the Lutheran Church, were followed. They consisted of the reading of a Psalm, reading of the Scripture lessons, prayer and responses by the choir. This part of the service was conducted by Rev. F. J. F. Schantz, D. D., and Rev. Professor G. F. Spieker, D. D. The sermon was delivered by the Rev. S. A. Repass, D. D., who selected for his text the eleventh verse. of the hfth chapter of St. Paul's first Epistle to the Thessalonians, " Wherefore comfort yourselves together and edify one another." The Rev. G. F. Krotel, D. D., LL. D., then delivered an address upon the life-work of Dr. Seip. During the service two hymns were song by the choir. They were, " My Faith Looks Up to Thee " and " Jerusalem the Glorious." The choir also rendered as an anthem, a choral from the oratorio " St. Paul," by Mendelssohn, entitled " To Thee, O Lord, I Yield my Spirit." After the service and benediction the casket was taken into the vestibule andthe lid was removed to give the relatives, friends and fellow-workers of the late president of Muhlenberg College one more opportunity to view the remains. A feature of this service was the fact that Rev. Dr. G. K. Krotel, LL. D., ofNew York City, who assisted, is the only living instructor of the Mt. Airy Theological Seminary, who taught the Rev. Dr. S. A. Repass, D. D., and the late Rev. T. L. Seip, D. D. AT THE GRAVE. The interment was private in Fairview Cemetery. Rev. Williani Wackernagel, D. D., a member of the Faculty of Muhlenberg College, and Professor of German and History, and Rev. S. A. Ziegenfuss, D.

THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE COLLEGE. STATE COLLEGE, PA., December 5, IQO3. Seereiary of ilze Frzculgv, Illulzfenbeffg College, Allentown, Pa. DEAR SIR :-I received in due course of mail the an- nouncement ofthe death of President Seip, mention of which I had already noticed in the newspapers. I was unfortunately away from home for several days at that time, and for that reason unable to attend the funeral services. I regret that I could not have had the opportunity of joining with his other friends in an expression of my respect and appreciation, and sense of private and public loss, but I can not let the occasion pass without expressing to his associates and immediate friends, through you, my high respect for his character and my sense of loss to the cause of higher education in Pennsylvania. I have been associated with Dr. Seip as a fellow member of the College and University Council ever since its organization, and while no circumstances have brought us into specially intimate relations, our entire inter- course has been of the most cordial and friendly character, and I have learned to appreciate very highly his sterling quali- ties of solid and substantial worth, and his broad Christian charity. As I am not fortunate enough to have any personal acquaintance with members of his immediate family, I shall be indebted to you if you will, in your own way, express my sympathy to them, or the proper persons among them. I understand very well that all expressions of sympathy on such accasions have a very perfunctory sound, but on the other hand, the relatives and friends of a good man are entitled to know something of the extent of which he is appreciated by those who have come in contact with him in less personal and intimate relations.

URING the thirty-six years of the life of Muhlenberg College the Ministerium of Pennsylvania has not been 5 entirely neglectful of her wants. The College was started with nothing. Faith, opportunity, and sense of duty brought it to what it is and stands for to-day. Prior to this the Lutheran Ministerium had shares in Pennsylvania College, but all the endowments which it then owned had to be given up when the professors were withdrawn and a beautiful private institution in this city was bought and enlarged. This from the very beginning was insulhcient to meet thederuands of the student body, and contrivances were made to get along in the best Way possible. With small donations and little support from the people at large which it deserved, the College at present has a status not at all discouraging. But a few years ago the question was whether the institution was to be improved or neglected, whether it should continue to grow and increase or whether it should decline and perish. Are matters so serious? Can not our College struggle on in coming years as it has done thus far? We answer No. " Long the ' public ' waited to catch the bright ray." This institution has reached a crisis in its history. The -change in the circumstances of life in our generation is so great as to demand advanced and improved conditions. In any department of business and industry in which this fact is not recognized, there is loss and ultimate failure. In this the colleges are no exception. They must be up to the advanced condition of things else, they will lose their patronage and thereby augment that of the modern, well equipped institution. The new buildings and greater facilities are for a sign or guarantee of pleasure, comfort, and enlightenment in themselves. But these classic and time-worn walls which still surround and shelter us, here, in the spot that has become sacred with the constant dissemination of principle and truth, are the ramparts that have stood nrm in the numerous trials, now nerving and braving all those in kinship as recipients of knowledge or sharers in its glory to a sincere devotion and stern contest in a greater sphere and a new era. " As man, considered in himself is helpless and beset with dangers, so is every college that is resting upon herself and her own powers. It has always been and we hope it will continue to be the comfort of Muhlenberg, while she was subject to so many misfortunes, that she is under the care of one who directs and manages everything, and who knew the assistance of which she stood in need." 70 MAIN BUILDING. .,.,,,i?

HAAS is one of the foremost scholars and educators of the Lutheran Church in America. He is Secretary of the General Council's Committee on Education, which embraces within itself the heads of all colleges, and seminaries within the bounds of the General Council. With Prof. H. E. Jacobs, D. D., he is the editor of that standard work of our Church, Tke Lufbemn Cyclopedia, He is the author of St. Mark of the'Lutheran Commentary, and of two of the most widely read books published in the Luth- eran Church within the last few years, namely, Bible Liferaiure, and Biblical Cfiiicism. He is an authority recognized in European Universities in the fields of Ethics and Historical Criticism. He is the successful founder and organ- izer of the Lutheran New Testament Society of New York, and is in living touch with such German University Pro- fessors as Dr. Johannes Kunze, Dr. Theodore Zahn, and Dr. O. Zoeckler. " Dr. Haas is an accurate and accomplished linguist, and in the University of Pennsylvania where he grad- uated in 1883 he was awarded the matriculate Greek prize of the Hrst rank and the Junior Greek prize. Dr. Haas graduated at the Philadelphia Seminary in 1887, and completed his education at the University of Leipzig, Germany, in 1887 and 1888. " Dr. Haas is now 41 years of age, with the best years of his life before him, and with a capacity for techni- cal scholarship of the highest rank and for hard practical work in executive lines, which are extraordinary. He combines in himself the accomplishments of the learned scholar, the popular orator, and the personal and warm- hearted friend. - " Dr. Haas is a son of the late John C. Haas, for many years teacher and organist of the Old Zion's and St. Michael's Lutheran Congregation of Philadelphia, and inherits to an unusual degree the teaching instincts, and peda- gogical insight of his father. He is married to a sister of Mr. George D. Boschen, a prominent young Lutheran of New York, and a successful publisher. Dr. Haas is held in highest respect and esteem by all our Lutheran New York clergy, young and old, who speaking from the knowledge of intimate contact, are of the opinion that he is the man for the place and the hour." . 73 Nf V I-903, S9195 3- 151196 863812311 O0 Layhvg of Oli 9612 o If 053211, Comer S10 5'6'1'ks1SfalJ 9.

But now, alas, the time has come- Oh, why be compelled to say it !- We've lingered here for manyla month And now at last we must leave it ! Farewell I O College walls to-day, Farewell I Professors dear ! For, for your kindness we would lay The bonds of Friendship here.

N a short time, the third act of the drama of college life will have been played. There is a brief intermission awaiting us, after which we shall for the last time appear before the footlights. Thus Father Time hurries us ever onwards. We are willing enough to hasten through some scenes of the play, but there are others upon which we would fain tarry, but the speed never slackens, on we move until the end, And thus we End ourselves in the Junior year, that best of all the years of one's college life. We have fought a hard fight g the villian is slain g the heroine is won. We would throw aside the helmet and buckler, the lance and the trusty blade, and would seek to court " ye ladye faire." But it is not wholly thus to be. Between the flashes of the blade, the groans of the dying, come the shafts of King Cupid, the tender whisperings of love. But History treats rather of the past, than the future, we must therefore turn backwards, not forwards, that our mission may be fulfilled. The pen has already told of our arrival upon these, the scenes of our college life. It has told of the great number that we entered fand how that number has decreased directly as the square of the timel, how we bravely held the stairs, until overpowered, in our Sophomore year, how we left the Freshies dead and wounded upon the gridiron, and how in our Freshman year we left the diamond with champion banners iiying high. But these are all scenes that have been played well and received their due curtain calls, I am but restating what has been chronicled by former historians, and it but remains for me to hasten the curtain of the last act, and then to sur- render the pen to my successor, During the freshly fallen snow of the past winter we enjoyed a delightful sleighride, and with no less pleasure the last and crowning event of our Junior year, " The German, Ausflugf' A year hence, as we plod along theqlast and roughest part of the four years' journey toward graduation, we shall often think of these days which speed by so quickly now, and many years from now, long after We shall have left " Old Muhlenberg," and shall 'have ventured out upon life's stormy seas, there will come back to us many a pleasant memory of this, our Junior year. And now the third act draws to a close, we are signaled from the wings, that the curtain is about to descend- that our parts have been played, and as we bow to the audience our only regret is that of the terrible speed of time.

The synopsis of his short life is something like this : He was born just as most other people have been, and during infancy no doubt cost his parents more trouble and vexation than he was worth. As he grew up he attended his native district school, a select school at Ruppsville and later graduated from Keystone Normal. Was next a pedagogue in his home district, which- bers the name of' Bastian's. Pre- pared for college privately and in 1901 became a Freshman. " In demeanor this gentleman is very cordial, but aiiittle' proud over being able to trace his ancestry without a missing link-wilt-lrexception of the great-grand- father-for eleven generations. Is not a loquacious man, but explicit in state- ment. He prefers languages to sciences and intends to take a civil service exami- nation preparatory to entering governmental service. Admires some lady friend and has for a long time being a regular and welcome caller at X. Mr. Bastian is a Democrat, Enterpean, and a member of the Trexlertown Lutheran Congregation, a distance west of Allentown, where also his home is. WIRT A. DRIES first landed in Shoemakersville, Pa. He was raised on a hilly farm, which accounts for the build of the man. He is namely very long up- and-down, and so lean and lank that he must part his hair exactly in the middle to keep his balance. Mr. Dries was a precocious child, and after having philoso- phied on existence in general and on the man in the moon in special, he entered Keystone Normal. His abilities were soon recognized, for he was made instructor in history in that institution. On entering Muhlenberg, he was admitted to the Sophomore Class, and has since made a hobby of Psychology-especially of un- conscious cerebration.. The professors address him as Master Dries, but we who know him call him " Pat." During his college course he shrewdly keeps his money at home, his mind elsewhere and his heart at Kutztown. He expects to make theology his profession, Democracy his diversion, and shredded wheat his diet. Mr. Dries is oneiof our plesantest students, always the same whether things .go up or down, full of class and college spirit and a member of Sophronia. . P 91 HERBERT F. GERNERT met his parents for the first time at Trexlertown, Pa., about nineteen or twenty years ago, and has since made his home with them. He is a half brother of Mr. Bastian, as they do not have the same father, but each a different mother. As he grew almost abnormally large and fat in extenso, he was early sent to school that his inner man might keep pace with his outer. He prepared partially for college in his home village school, entered afterwards the preparatory department, and was initiated into the Freshman society Anno Domini 1901. Mr. Gernert is the giant Anteus of our Class. He is so tall that if his feet get wet on Sunday, the cold doesn't reach his head until the following Friday or Saturday. As a consequence he is in the habit of looking down on most people, but we readily pardon him for that when we consider his good qualities as a student, and social and pleasing mannersp Although musically inclined, medicine is his calling. He will operate on all sick animals the first ten years of his practice free of charge for the sake of reputation. In politics Mr. Gernert and Mr. Roosevelt generally agree. GEORGE E. K. GUTH was nrst greeted in South Whitehall a little more than two decades ago. When just a few years old his parents moved to Allentown, where, ever since he was nurtured under the parental roof. He received the hrst rudiments of education in the schools of town. He attended the Aca- demic Department of Muhlenberg College and later entered the college as a Fresh- man. Although decidedly Epicurean in his manner of life, he is lean and slender in form, yet not so as to detract from the symmetry of person. He is very kindly disposed, always courteous and obliging. His crowning virtue is modesty which occasionally blends into indifference and holds him forth as always of the same cheerful disposition even in adverse moments. The study of sociology af- fords him his greatest delight. Whenever a question is put to him as to the nature of some of the fundamentals he makes immediate reference to the "little book." 92 especially strong in German, Latin, and Greek We are now pleased to introduce the outer and inner man of MR. JOHN J. HEILMAN. Look at his well formed brow and you have an in- dex to his mind. The keynote of this gentleman is "common sense"-that most charming and enduring of all the qualities of a real man. Related to common sense, as well as part of it, is sound judgment. Endowed with these faculties and schooled by the training of acollege course, Mr. Heilman is most eminently fit- ted for the taxing position as a business manager of our CIARLA, In this work, which requires more attention and inspection, introspection and retrospection, circnmspection and other "spections" than anyone knows who has not tried it, Mr. Heilman is a happy complement and safety-valve of his able, yet more viva- cious and exuberant associate manager, Mr. Kidd. Mr. Heilman is from Wal- berts, Pa., where he was brought up in a good family. After receiving his Bach- elor's Degree at Muhlenberg, he will continue as such while pursuing a course in civil engineering, very likely at U. P. Pufhng engines, railroad bridges and the like have a fascination for him. 93 CHARLES G. HEFFNER owns this guileless countenance which now faces you Every morning this gentleman arrives in town on a train at the head of a troop of Fem Sem students, and as regularly returns with them 1n the evening By unanimous consent he is their avowed guide and ideal This continuous touch with the gentle sex has had a refining iniluence upon our friend He is polite, shaves twice a day, and never lets passionate language or facial distortion get the better of him except in the laboratory when the test tubes break M Heifner is from Lyons, Pa., graduated from Kut7town Normal and was a success ful teacher for a number of years, and an equally successful sparker the latter of which he is yet, although he can notmake up his mind as to whether it Hnally is to be a 'KLong" lady or a "High" lady. An elegant team and buggy 1S the cont eyance of this gentleman to and from these meetings, and he never smokes more than l "two" cigars at a time. Mr. Heffner is not onlv a good student throughout but CLARENCE E. KEISER, according to documentary evidence unearthed in the archives of Europe is a direct descendant of a pretender to a German crown. But when the Huns, the Tartars and other savage tribes overran Europe from time to time, the old dynasties with pretenders and all were scattered. And so the Keisers in America have only the name and fame left. Even this came near being lost in the year 1903, when the Freshmen tribe, akin to those mentioned above and the most ferocious of them all, sacked every civilized principality within reach at a time when the Keiser with a retinue of Ritters and other Reiters, with all the Tallmen and DeLongmen-ye even, according to history, when Klines and Kidds, -were away on a great crusade. This same tribe of marauders entered every Weiler and Schank, drove away the Weibels and other guards, trod down the Roses, seized all the Sophns and Kerns, and whatever, else that was Guth, until there was hardly a Heil-men left, but only Driesch, Dormer and other lamentable Marcks of their vandalism. He is our Editor. IsAAc HowARD KERN was born at Hummel's Store, Pa., on a bright sum- mer morning at a time when both his parents happened to be in Ohio on a visit. He declares he remembers the occasion fairly well-how the old sun was peeping through the southeast window, the birds twittering in the apple trees, people run- ning to and fro, and how Fido and Tom fthe old catj had a big fight. Thus itis seen that the nucleus of the future Junior was wafted into this mundane habita- tion of mortals under very auspicious circumstances-the brightness of the day indicating the quality of his mind as well as the complexion of his fair skin g the singing birds betokening his melodious voice 5 the busy people. his studious life, and the fight his democratic patriotism and " college spirit." While yet dependent on the nipple he most studiously watched with his large expressive eyes the bees around Hummels Store, and their modus opm- awzdi. Thus an almost insatiable thirst for the nectar of knowledge was gradually instilled into our friend, and after a preparatory course at Kutztown Normal, he took up college Work proper. 94 In making a short sketch of the versatile HARVEY SAMUEL KIDD, KI. D. D., preacher, Democrat, demagogue, pedagogue, etc., etc., so many interesting pic- tures rush into our mind that it is difficult to select. Mr. Kidd is a man of about twenty years of age, has a splendid physique, and is, in our humble estima- tion, the best looking fellow in our class. He early entered the preparatory De- partment of Muhlenberg, and after some 'K dabbling in the classics and meddling with aparatusu entered college proper. He always takes a most enthusiastic part in all phases of college life, and constantly has so many irons in the fire, that this bright and big man gives the impression at times of being mulfzmz ivzparwo-reversed. Mr. Kidd is a ready talker and good in repartee, although his boomerang often misses and returns. But we all learn by our mistakes and it is Mr. Kidd's earnest conviction that contact with good men and women, observation of the world, and practical life in connection with the theoretical are necessary requisites for the de- velopment of the college student. Man is fearfully and wonderfully made' says a good writer. Whenever we read this sentence, we " unconsciously " think of WILLIAM H. KLINE who is fearfully, cheerfully made. This new meteor was discovered at Maxatawny, Pa., about twenty-one years ago. He early manifested a remarkable skill in dancing backwards and sidewards, and more so in the unheard of expedition with which he could scare the wits out of the innocent chickens and calves that happened to come into the front yard. These signs of precosity caused his parents to send their "star" to school at an early age, but time has effaced the characters in which the records of these times were written. 'K Billy " however has changed since those days. His stay at Kutztown Normal and at college has made him another man. Without a moment's notice he may begin to prance about gradually falling into a regular and scientific " zappel tanz." Mr. Kline is a genial and cheerful fellow, liked by everybody-the fair sex included-is a Sophronian and expects to study Theology. He is now President of our Class. 95 Another of the Class of Nineteen Five, a Class better known for its quality than quantity, is JOHN QI. MARCKS, Esquire. This is the way he looks except when he smiles when he looks otherwise. Once he was only a wee little tot, and not worth the snap of a finger. The first thing he did was to cry, and was afterwards called " John." After sojourning in this "vale of sour- kraut and misery " for some years, attending common school in his own township, he entered the preparatory school of Muhlenberg College, and in the fall of Igor was admitted as a Freshman. .It is not the intention of Mr, Marcks, as someone has claimed, to tear this world to splinters so that we have nothing to stand on. On the contrary, quickness, modesty, and honesty are some of his characteristics. He is also a pleasant friend and a good student-very good especially in German. His future office will be that of a preacher. Mr. Marcks is from Wescoesville, Pa. Here he was raised on a farm which for generations has belonged to the same dynasty. He is an only child, and of course has his own way in most things, including an elegant driving team, and makes regular calls, hush-h-h I The subject of this sketch is CHARLES W. REINERT. Looks une, doesn't he? Gf stature he is quite small, but exceptionally well proportioned and quick as a cat. He chose Coplay as his birthplace, which shows he possesses very good judgment when he wants to use it. It was shortly before Christmas twenty years ago that Santa Clause dropped him down the chimney, and as the chimney was hot, it scorched his hair. He attended Coplay High School, and graduated from it with 'drst honors in a class of one. Follow- ing this graduation, " Pinky," as his pet name is, entered the preparatory depart- ment of Muhlenberg, and in 1901 College proper. Mr. Reinert is a valued member of the Glee Club Where he sings first tenor. " What will this curlihead make?" his close chum, Mr. Reiter was asked. "Hard to tell," came the answer with a shake of his head, But " Pinky " says he is first going to become a man flet us hope he will succeed some dayj, and afterwards a physician. He is a reader and member of Euterpea. 96 FRANK H. REITER was born on a Saturday afternoon some twenty years ago. . This fact he keeps steadily in mind and carefully refrains from any work on Satur- days-or any other day-unless he forgets. Mr. Reiter is a vivacious, whole- souled fellow of good intelligence with a fair amount of information on general knowledge, but posted on all matters of less consequence. Frank is an enthusi- astic sportsman, and President of Muhlenberg College Glee Club on which he sings first tenor. This is part of one of his songs : " He wears a window in his eye To see his whiskers grow, He thinks the ladies pine and die, Because they love him so." This " Musical " man prepared for college at Kutztown Normal, Mechan- W I ical engineering is his chosen field of labor. Mr. Reiter is from Pennsburg and is going to be a Democrat. Sophronia claims him among her members. ROBERT K. ROSENBERGER was born in Allentown in 1884, just in time to I ' yell and squeal for the new president, Grover Cleveland, The Republican suck- T lings had had full possession of the " Nipples of State " for twenty-Eve years, and had waxed fat and satisfied, while the Democratic calves during this long interim had been reduced to skin and bone from want of nourishment, and exhausted from continuous bellowing. But now the latter had the vantage- ground again, and their tails wagged most lustily. Robert continued a true Democrat for a while but is now Republican. He was " granulated" from the Allentown High School in IQOCI with second honor. He then entered college and took up the sci- entific eourse. His intention is after, graduation from Muhlenberg to enter U. P. and there study medicine. On receiving his degree, M. D., he will at once begin surgical operations, the patients bearing the expense and the pain. Mr. Rosen- berger is himself suffering at present from a wound iniiicted by Cupid, and prays to Venus night and day to be propitious to him. 97 This is CLAUDE G. SHANKWEILER, of Allentown, Pa. Let us introduce him with a few words of the poet : H " With us there is a man, a yong sqnyer, A lovyer, and a lusty bacheler, With lokkes crulle, as they were leyed in presse. Of twenty year of age he is, I guesse. And bare hym wel, as of so litel space, In hope to stonden in the lady's grace." Mr. Shankweiler is a pleasant fellow who Ustonden in the grace" of both ladies and gentlemen. After being graduated from the High School, he entered Muhlenberg where he takes the classic course. He is member of a great many organizations-various college teams, college plays, choirs, fraternities, Glee Club, etc. All these occupations, together with his studies, have kept his face so busy that the pipe has been entirely neglected during winter. Mr. Shankweiler is a congenial member of the College Glee Club, singing a deep second bass. Some three decades ago SVEN O. SIGMOND was first hailed at Havenger, Norway. We characterize him as being six feet tall with a stout and well-rounded form. The enormity and bold relief of his form, which probably portray the character and relief of his native land, would indicate that he was of an irate and passionate disposition, but on the contrary he is very calm and peaceful. He received his early education in a normal school from which he graduated. He 'later entered Kongsgaard Gymnasium. While there a desire was awakened to see America and together with three of his brothers he embarked for our shores. For a year and a half he was financial agent for Pleasant View Luther College in Illinois and was also instructor in that school for one year. ' He entered Muhlenberg College as a member of the present Junior Class. He is very genial and courteous, in language and action very deliberate. His mode of life shows him to be a true disciple of Epicurusg for the eating of his meals includes the greater part of his day's work. 98 JOSEPH R. TALLMAN is a tall rnan from a tall city, called Tower City. He is a direct descendant of one of the giants who composed Emperor Frederick's greatest regiment. His fighting blood still makes itself felt on important occa- sions, as, for instance, at elections. Dear reader, if you are a Democrat, by all means shake hands with our friend, Mr. Tallman, before election, and you will receive as hearty a greeting and as fine a smile as you wish for. Mr. Tallman. is a person of more than ordinary ability and of a versability possessed by few. Reared in a good family he had already some to begin with when lie enlisted for higher training. He graduated from Kutztown Normal, and entered Freshmen at Muhlenberg in Igor. He has taught several terms in the Keystone Normal, and is a popular instructor. In college he manages to do what but few can-to be a good student and at the same time be posted as to everybody and everything-from the president of United States to the jockey of the race track. G LUTHER WEIBEL IS a complex character. He has been a participant of musical disturbances and outlandish noises since his youth, But he has improved, and now knows how to " play" in the various meanings of that word. In the nrst place he plays with the band-for money. When he gets stuck in logic or any other study, he folds his hands on his back and plays on words. When he wants to have a half an hour off, he plays on the kind disposition of the professors. Again, making use of his wellformed face and good English, he plays on the heartstrings of a class of ladies in his charge. He plays on the credulity of Freshman, making them believe their collars are dirty long before they are so. He plays the clarinet and other instruments. At present he says he is " playing his cards" fora postion next year. He also plays the barber of the college people, and, finally, plays on his own imagination, actually believing the skin- eruption below his nose is a moustache. To feed this growth he eats "force" six times a day. i 99 OW friends, I wish, upon my word, That you'd a little sense observe, .And not so often interrupt, And call me very rude and rough.

IOO Here are our civil engineers,- You could almost tell by the shape of the ears. Fortune-tellers, at least, would say That to fortune they have found their way. And now, my friends, I'll introduce One but you'll laugh like the deuce- For he's a doctor and, truth to tell, Each one in the class is very well. This, our musician, we'd have you know, For he is one who goes sure but slow : And now-but listen-I'll ask him to play, " Excellent ! Excellent !" I know you will say Here are our preachers all in a row. You ask nie to name them, but-ah no ! 'We know you will like them everyone For they are working for God and His Son. Now here is a fellow-just look at him 5 He seems just as full of sunshine as sin 3 I'd surely not have you think he was bad For he's helped many a heart to be glad. And now I shall close this little rhyme.

NE NIGHT in early fall, Zmm immivzefzie, a silent procession wended its way from the ancient doorway of Muhlenberg College. One might have thought that it was a procession of ghosts, for " the hours of night had grown hoar " and it was " the very witching time of night." But closer inspection revealed the fact that these "ghosts" were very youthful, far from transparent, and, mi1'czbz'!e diem, some carried green posters, others buckets that seemed to be heavy and the end man had a white-wash brush in his hand. Of course, when this procession went through the streets of Allentown, the natives stared at it in amazement, asking, as Aeneas did : Quid volz' c0nm1'sus?" This, being interpreted, in Allentown phraseology, means, " VVas maint die drup buva P" Their curiosity was soon satisfied by following these boys and reading the posters that were put up as the procession moved along. These " buva " were jolly Sophs, out for a little fresh air and also to post in prominent places, rules for the good of the Freshmen, those green things that had just arrived. So this first event during the Sophomore year was an errand of mercy. Not wishing to have people impose on these poor, young Freshmen, the Sophs deemed it their duty to make some sacriiices and work on night turn for the good of these Freshmen babes. And yet their work was not appreciated. " This was the most unkindest cut of all." But the great event at the beginning of this year was the stair-rush. The Freshman year had ended auspici- ously with the Class Play, which was a success in every respect g many of those who were there said that it was the best class play ever seen in the city. Taking their cue from this, the Sophs lined up on the stairway on that Friday morning determined not to let the Freshmen break through more than two of their lines. Before the rush, there was plenty of "hot air" emerging from the facial oriiices ofthe Freshmen but afterwards-silence reigned supreme. The Freshmen rushed upon the stalwart lines of Sophomores but there was " nothin, doing." After fifteen minutes of hard work, they succeeded in breaking the front line but could get no farther. The second line was like a stone wall. So we, the Sophs, won the stair-rush and now hold the distinction of being one of the few classes that won two stair-rushes. ' And now, mfma virosgue camo. Those mighty gridiron heroes deserve as much praise as the virum ofthe Aeneid. This year, the Freshmen expected to walk away with our boys 5 " it would be a perfect 'cinch,' U they said. Some of them even had the audacity to say that we would not score. But our boys, knowing well the igno- rance and childishness of the Freshmen, said nothing. We knew that the Sophs would win. It was a bright day, when the contest took place. In spite of the fact that they expected to win, the Freshmen were nervous. Several of them had to take soda water f ? I to keep their spirits up, The Held was kept clear by the Seniors and Juniors so that both teams had a fair chance to win 5 on other years, the Held had been crowded with people. This game was the best class game for many years. Both teams were out for gore, and gory was the con- test. Of course the Sophs won, 7 to 5. During the game we displayed our pennant and deied the Freshmen to come and take it. They had their hands full and were not anxious to get into another scrimmage. So the Black and Gold of 1906 waved triumphantly above the defeated Freshmen and gleamed' like the image of victory above the heroic and invincible Sophomore eleven. U ' Then, as a fitting climax, we had an elegant supper at Schnecksville. We toasted our heroes and our school, and made the memory of this night a pleasant one in the minds of all who were present. Class spirit and enthusi- asm animated every Sophomore there. T The Class Banquet, that crowning event of all, will be treated in a separate article, by an abler hand than mine. This year's history has been even more encouraging than last year's. The only sad event was the death of the revered President of our College which threw a gloom over all the school. Besides this, the year was a pleasant one for us all. We have been steadily advancing in the way of wisdom and have been developing the Sophos rather than the moros in our nature.

Tune : " Mister Dooley." HEN you perceive the scroll of fame you'1l feel a certain thrill, For at its summit stands the name we placed there with a will And mighty was the effort for you see our ranks are thin, The upper-classmen thought they could do us with a vim. CHORUS. - Our class united, our faith we plighted, To rally round the garnet and champagne g Mid gridiron smashes and cupid's dashes, Alike uphold naught seven in its fame. As we do thread the hollowed halls whence wisdom has its birth, The blaze of knowledge round us does disperse all others' mirth 5 Then all do pay us homage for they know we've made a hit, They wish they could surpass us but they can't, no not a bit.-CHO. No doubt you wonder at the strains and envy our renown, In mathematical glory we will surely gain our crown g " Under the Bamboo Tree" we've sat and studied out the stars, Encircling a something which was never up in Mars.-CHO. We all have hopes that our dear name will always be sublime, For tender memories we do have of this our sacred shrine 5 And ever will the spirits of bright heroes be most dear, lllhen gentle evening breezes waft this song unto the ear.-CHO. IIO Freshman Class History. This copyrighted version of the adventures of the Freshman Class is herewith published for the first time in an up-to-date form. PRELUDE. SCENE I.-Phocis, Greece. A dress-suit case, so covered with labels that it resembled a theatrical bill-posting board, assisted a scholarly looking personage to ascend the broad marble steps of the temple of Delphi and ushered him into the presence of the Pythia. The traveler introduced himself to the priestess of the shrine and said, " I am not as you may suppose, an advertising agent, but a Professor of Muhlenberg College, who has directed his steps hither to ascertain the decree of this famous oracle respecting the incoming Freshman Class ,of that college." The Pythia in reply uttered these words, the inspiration of Apollo himself, " It will be quality not quantity." The Professor pays at the cashiers desk and retires. SCENE 2.-Allentown, Pa. A body of handsome young men, desirous of inhaling the classic atmosphere in the halls of dear old Muhlen- berg, apply at Dr. Cooper's ticket oiiice and receive the necessary coupons of admission. There is no lingering of motheris tears on their sturdy cheeks, for every one had come with the determination to seek glory. Thus was the oracle fulfilled. The class although small eclipsed all others, and made the very rafters ring with their praises, proving that quality not quantity counts. ACT I.-SCENE 1.-College. First Floor Corridor. The new found sons of Muhlenberg had scarcely basked in the sweet smiles of their paternal instructors, when it was sprung on them that they would be initiated by the Sophs on the second Friday following. Immediately the desire to conquer filled our thin ranks, and knowing that strength was required we journeyed to the muscle making rooms of Physical Culture fame on the ground iioor. The ever memorable day soon came, and our raw recruits having formed in attacking ranks dashed through the door of the recitation room and sought the stairway 3 and with coats off and sleeves rolled up we dived after our leader straight at the Sophs. Cheering with a vengence and urged on by the Juniors we pulled with might and main, but it was like tackling the Pyramids of Egypt. We cleared some from the steps and pushed upward. Two of our giants were up a considerable distance but lacking support were thrown back again. Then the tumult was declared off by the President, and the Sophs awarded the victory. They saw our spirit, however, and trembled to think of the consequences of a foot-ball game, if we would show such spirit. - ACT II.-SCENE I.-Rittersville, Pa. Time passed rapidly and one day a letter came from the Sophs challenging us to a gridiron contest. It was a declaration of war. A This set us to practising hard, for the Sophs let out a lot of " hot air" about wiping up the dust with us. You shall see how greatly they were mistaken, The auspicious day now drew near and the warriors arrayed themselves in full armor and took leave of their loved ones. Oh l how sad. It was like the parting of Hector and Andromache. A The combatants now arrive in the arena and the spectators take their seats. Neptune, the presiding diety of the Sophs trembles for the outcome of the battle, and seeking Jupiter implores him 'to give the victory to the Sophs. Juno, however, the Queen of Olympus, whose affections the Freshmen had already gained, became greatly enraged and begged her husband not to grant the request, jupiter, who feared his brother, after much coaxing said that the Sophs would win, but by a small margin. Then he called a council of the gods and commanded that none should interfere on either side, and the battle is announced to commence. Captain " Dodger " oifers sacrifice, but the entrails are unfavorable and the victim is without a heart. The rival " eleven " now draw up in line of battle. The Sophs defy the Freshmen to charge, and to their sorrow they see a greatgap rent in their ranks. Thus the struggle continued, always bitterly contested. Sometimes one side had the advantage and sometimes the other, until the 'drst half ended and each side had a touchdown. The intermission was soon over and again the warriors rush at each other and lock in deadly embrace. The Freshmen made a mighty effort to gain another touchdown but Mars averts it. The Sophs try hard and gain a touch- back. Again they made a great attack, but Bacchus intervenes, like Venus in the Illiad, and bears the Freshmen away in a thick cloud, seating them at a banquet at the " White Inn" on Seventh Street, Allentown. The Sophs are proclaimed victorious by the very small score of 7 to 5. Always with honor have we striven, Gladly doing all we were bidden g And to brighten a time not far away, Will appear a mighty Freshmen play. Then let all good students praise the name, Which upheld Muhlenberg in its fame. HISTORIAN. II2 FRESHMAN CLASS President, . . Vice-President, Recording Secretary Treasurer, . Historian, . Monitor, .

UTERPEAN LITERARY SOCIETY was organized in 1867 for the sole purpose of developing the expressive powers of a majority of the sons of Muhlenberg. Men of oratory are called for in every sphere of life. All honor is due to the founders of Euterpea for securing such an opportunity by means of which all the latent powers of oratory' may he aroused. Her motto: " Watch and Advance" has been her guide through the past years, and to it she owes her success. ' She has at present fifty-two members and judging from past records we feel safe in saying that in the future she will continue to prosper. Her library is continually growing 5 about one hundred new books of biography, hction, history, religion, science, and travel have been added. The library now contains nearly three thousand volumes. Euterpea ever feels proud of the many prominent men she has sent into the various walks of life. Honor men are leaving her walls yearly. V Sons of Euterpea must not forget what she has done for them and may her worli in the future ever strive to overshadow that of the past. Since a new college home is in sight we-hope that in a near future Euterpea will have the honor to move into her own private home. 128 J- 'QII1 u, ..

EARLE RIXSTINE. Nile Green and Pink Sophronian Literary Society. T is thirty-seven years ago that the Sophronian Literary Society was organized. It was organized by men who realized the necessity of literary work, and who were aware of the fact that men with a college training were at all times liable to be called upon to impart unto others what they know. She has again enjoyed a year of great but not unusual prosperity. That the work done in the society is ben- -eicial to the members is shown by what her men have again achieved during the past year. It was one of her members that received iirst honor in last year's graduating class. She can also pride herself in the fact that one of her members carried away the prize in the Junior Oratorical Contest, and more than that 3 that of the seven who were willing to enter the contest six were Sophronians. It was also 'one of the members that represented the College at the Inter-collegiate Oratorical Contest. She may well feel proud of her past and by the continuation of the interest and activity of the members at the present time her future may even overshadow her past. As her name implies, Sophronia consists of men Whose literary ability is the light and pride of the institution 5 men who have erected living monuments for themselves by their achievements in the literary world. There are now forty members of Sophronia who support the " White and Blue " and are ever mindful of her motto, " The End Crowns the Work." Her library, which consists upwards of twenty-live hundred volumes of science, history, travel, biography and fiction is also a credit to her 5 since its books are always selected with the greatest care and therefore are only of the most excellent standards. The meetings during the present year have all been well attended and great interest was always manifested in the rendition of the program. The new men are very active in their support of Sophronia, and there is no doubt that her future will be in safe hands.

After these brief addresses the meeting adjourned and all felt that they had spent the afternoon pleasantly and profitably. 167 Alumni Meeting. HE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION of Muhlenberg College met in the College Chapel at 7.30 P. M., june 17, 1903. Rev. J. C. Rausch, '90, presided. After prayer by Rev. Krauss, Rev. VV. O. Fegley, '90, was appointed to secure the names of those present. Fifty-nine members were found to be present. After the reading of the minutes, by motion of Dr. Seip, '85, the Class of 1903 was received into membership. Election of officers then followed, the result of which was as follows: President, Rev. J. C. Rausch, '90, Corresponding Secretary and Treasurer, Dr. G. T. Ettinger, '80, Recording Secretary, Dr. J. A. Bauman, '73. Dr. G. T. Ettinger, '80, Dr. H. Seip, '85, and R. I. Butz, Esq., '87, were elected as a Board of Managers. The Treasurer, Dr. Ettinger, gave his report, and by motion of Rev. E. H. Trafford, '92, the report was received and the auditing committee of last year was continued. At this time the tellers reported that Rev. J. H. Umbenher, '80, and -George R. Ulrich, D. D. S., '88, were elected first and second Vice-Presidents respectively. Dr. S. E. Ochsenford, '76, chairman of the Committee on Alumni Building Fund made a verbal report to the effect that the results during the year were very meager. Rev. E. J. Ritter, '88, then spoke at length about the Alumni Building Fund, stating that some plan should be adopted to interest all the Alumni and to secure from every -one as much as possible. He thought a good plan would be to divide the Alumni by conferences or centers, and appoint a committee of three in each conference or center to solicit subscriptions. Dr. Ochsenford stated that a man was appointed in each conference, but that the committee had not heard from them. He then also read all the names of the committee on the Alumni Building Fund. Dr. Ochsenford then stated that 512,000 was subscribed by one-fourth of the Alumni and that there should be no diiiiculty in raising 325,000 from all. A motion was made by R. J. Butz that the money subscribed by the Alumni Association be devoted to the -erection of the building upon the new college site. This motion was carried. This was followed by a discussion with regard to some pastors heading the list of subscription in their own parishes, with the 3100 subscription for the Alumni Building Fund. On motion of Rev. I. H. Waidelich the meeting adjourned. 168 hirty-Sixth Commencement. Music, Orchestra. Prayer, . Music, Orchestra. Latin Salutatory, Music, Orchestra. "Go On!

T was the I6 of February, 1904, and in the cold, gray dawn, half-revealed figures might have been seen gliding down the campus, like spirits of the night departing on the approach of day. The hgures were not spirits, but very flesh-and-bone Sophomores, who, with their carpet bags and tooth brushes, were off to New York City for the purpose of celebrating their annual banquet. It has always been the custom that the Freshies frustrate the departure of the Sophs, or at least make an attempt, and we are sorry to see them so luke-warm in continuing the old college customs and traditions that go to make Alumni fire-side stories. Nevertheless, we arrived at New York, and, after securing rooms at the Broadway Central, second only to the 'Waldorf-Astoria, went rambling around town. Among the interesting places visited that day were the new East River bridge, Grant's tomb, Columbia Uni- versity, and the Eden Musee. Especially interesting was the great Flatiron Building at Broadway and Fifth Avenue. It is here that the mighty tide of the fair Gothamites ebbs and Hows, revealing in the relentless breeze heels and hosiery of wondrous kinds and colors, " making one think of the Goddess of Liberty with one foot firmly planted on earth and the other pointing to the stars." In the evening the great event of the trip, namely, the banquet, took place in one of the elaborate private dining rooms of the hotel already mentioned. Allow it to be said that the menu and the toasts responded to provided an elegant 'L sufficiency " both for the physical and intellectual appetite. But anguish rides swift after pleasure. It was 4 A. M. by the town clock when a worthy member of the expe- dition made an attack on the emergency cascaret box in a way entirely too emphatic for the capabilities of this pen. Some of the interesting places visited the following days were Wall Street, the Stock Exchange, Trinity Church, the Battery, and the Statue of Liberty, also the Navy Yard, to which we were admitted through the courtesy of Major McClellan. It was while in the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Arts tl1at a Hask of bitters QI trust I use the right terml escaped from an honorable comrade's coat-pocket, and with a loud crash, spread its contents on the iloor. The guard, thinking some deed of vandalism had been committed, rushed to the place, and 1 but enough! I am telling tales out of the family. ' Suiiice it to say, that after having become thoroughly New Yorkish, we returned to our college work both happier and wiser men. Q IVIENU. Blue Points-Half shell. Radishes. Queen Olives. Celery.

And patiently they waited 'Till the bell began to ring, And then with breath abated. They heard the foe forming. And each one gripped his neighbor, And each one prayed or swore, That the Sophoniores should conquer, Or be cowards for evermore. And like a massing army, The Freshmen slowly came, Out of the classroom marching In dolorous array: And each one a little timid, Yet each one determined still, The Sophomores never should win it,-- This battle about to begin. TI-IE BATTLE. And tho the Freshmen were beaten In battle to win the stair g And tho on the gridiron defeated, They still do boldly declare, The Freshmen gathering courage Began th' attack with a will, Each one the other urging To iight but not to kill : And each one tackled another And tugged with might and main, Till the floor was strewn with bodies, But none of them was slain. For the battle was only the stair rush And the President quickly came And commanded the classes to hush, So the Freshmen fought in vain. v And the Sophomores loudly cheering, Proclaimed the victory theirs, While the Freshmen stood their jeeririg And declared it wasn't fair. On a blood red field of battle Our heroes had never been, Nor had the roar of cannon Ever been heard by them g But each one felt within him That courage which soldiers feel, And patriotism filled them, Which danger alone could reveal. That in the great battle of life They surely will fill the top notch, And the Sophomores won't be in it. But the Sophomores call it all " bosh." 182 LEAP YEAR.

As the -curtain rises the members of the Class look at each other with astonishment. President : " Gentlemen of the Class of 1906 g I come before you this morning feeling confident that every- one present is aware of my mission. I have in my possession a letter from the principal of a female school, to the effect that you people had been in mischief again, and that he demands satisfaction for damages imposed by posting Freshman rules on their building." Then followed a brief reprimand, after which the following conversation took place : Mr. A. : " In trouble again, brothers I God be with us I " Mr. B. : " Bah I Humbug I " Mr. A. : " This a humbug, brother? You don't mean that, I'm sure." Mr. B. : " I do I He simply did this to scare us a little. What right have you to be dismal and inorose? We can easily give satisfaction." Mr. A. : " Like fun, we can I I toldvthem to be careful, and now the news come like this." Mr. B. 1 " Don't be angry, brother." Mr. C. : " What else can you expect when you live in such a world of fools as this? Every idiot that goes about with such ihoughfs in his mind should be boiled with his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He shouldft ' Mr. D. : " Oh, yes I We can easily give satisfaction, and then it may do us good to have the'eXperience." Mr. A. z " There are many things from which I might have derived good, by which I might have profited, I Adare say 3 but I am sure I have always thought of justice, apart from the veneration due to certain men." Mr. E. I " This is the only time I know of, even including the long calendar of the by-gone year, when men and even women seemed by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures, bound on other journeys that we were called to terms and give satisfaction. Therefore, brothers, though it won't put a scrap of gold or silver in our pockets, but the contrary, I believe it will do us good, and I say, God bless it I " Mr. F. : " Why you are quite a powerful speaker, sir, let me hear some more from you. I suppose you will be a desirable candidate for the presidency of the class during the banquet season," 184 Mr. G. : " Yes, let's forget this and have a banquet in commemoration of it. Although I feel sorry, with all my heart that this has come to pass. We have never had any trouble to which we had to bow, but this trial has come upon us, because, for the honor of the Class of 19o6 we wanted to show to those fair college damsels what privileges we granted to the Class of I9o7." Mr. I-I. : " This thing will circulate. Soon every fellow in college will know it, and some outside people, especially our sweet,- dear, affectionate, loving, entertaining, fascinating, zealous, charming, captivating, ardent, admired, revered, chaste, fashionable, accomplished and beloved sweethearts. This might lower us in their estimation. " Mr. I. : " Bah I Is that any reason why we should be dismal about this thing. If we have to pay we might consider ourselves ill used. Apparently the action of the master seems harsh, but somehow I can't help thinking that he has a tender spot in his heart somewhere, if only one could find it. But to tell the truth, it's like looking for a needle in a haystack. What is it that makes him so angry? I-Ie ain't sick that I know of, and yet he acts as if he had all his life gotten out of bed wrong side foremost. Perhaps he was born so. Well, never mind what ails him 5 all I know is that we committed something that we ought not to have done, and we have to bear the consequences, This is a time to think well of everybody 3' so I'll try to do even of him who brought this trial upon us." PART II. SCENE.-Chapel.-Enter some Sophomores who have been informed that the Class is wanted in chapel.j Mr. J. : fl-Entering chapel.J " What's up boys? As I entered the hall a ' Freshman ' told me that I am wanted in chapel." A Mr.. K. : " A thing that I suppose will surprise you. The unexpected has again turned up. The president just read a letter informing us that the principal of a female school demands satisfaction for posting those Freshman rules on their building. What is your opinion concerning it? We have been discussing it for some time already." Mr. 1. : " Oh, mercy I Is it possible! In fact, I am quite surprised, although I had premeditated that it might stir up his animal nature g but yet I had hoped for the best, since it came to pass we have to make the best of it. Hoping brothers that all will end well, and that the news will remain in our limits." Mr. L. z " Bah I what rubbish." CTakes off coat and hat and throws them on a seat.j " Several years ago several of my companions and I were in a somewhat similar trouble. We had faced it bravely and the affair turned out somewhat favorably, although it had spoiled my digestion and had given me a sallow complexion." " Yes, several years ago several of my companions and I Went through the trial. I wonder where they are now so that I might converse with them in regards to it. They were fellows after my own heart, careful and saving. What fools we are ! They got the best of us again." Mr. M. : "Yes, we certainly were fools in doing it. To give satisfaction most likely requires cash, and this is a year that we dare not be very charitable, for we need the cash for the coming banquet. I am of a sympathetic nature, and am always willing to forgive 5 but it requires a second thought before I'll forgive the plaintiff." Mr. N. : " I concur with the assertions of my predecessor. I don't want to spend my hard-earned money for such rubbish as this. I'm sure I paid enough for the supportof such iomfaolefy. I believe in putting up a stiff defense against the plaintiff." Mr. O. : " Dear classmates I I am an associate with you in this afliiction. But what evidence does he have of our guilt? fMeditating.j Oh, yes I Mercy be upon us I I think of it now, the wording on the posters give it away at once. Well I suppose we have to swallow this, and be for the rest of our lives persecuted by a legion of goblins." Mr. P. : " Oh, mercy I Why do you trouble me? Would that it were an apparition I Must we men of worldly minds believe it? It seems we must. I can't understand why it is that we have to go through this trial. It seems the fates are against us, as if, we would have to wonder through this world with a good many misfortunes." Mr. R. : " My land I Brother, don't be so pessimistic I Don't make it worse than it really is I There is a bright side to it, as well as a dark 5 and this is what we have to look forf' Then there was silence for a few moments g each one being in deep meditation trying to see the bright side 5 but it seemed to have been beyond the horizon of perception for most of them. ,I 1' I 'Tr ' 41' 5 Il w ' est vi Il 'J Il Q v ,, l"1 nd -- L 4. , fi 5 e Z g- Q -' ' G lif ffs ile if ,fa Wifi.

The clock is slowly tolling, The hour of nine has come g The students, in a body, Out on the campus come. Behold, in the distance towering, Like a mountain, great and high, An object which seems to grow larger As the students are drawing nigh. Scarcely a word is spoken, As if each one filled with awe, Expected to see the monster Open his Wooden jaw. But hark I The old school-bell Is ringing loud and clear, As its sound it gladly sends, And the students loudly cheer. But see ! The monster is moving, Its great side begins to quake, And the smoke is upward rolling, And the fire the stillness breaks. Then the silence is broken, As the students dance around, And the smoke is almost choking The citizens standing 'round. HIRT. And then in their night shirts dressing Or perchance with their sheets wrapped round The students are parading The streets of old Allentown. First to the Profs. they are marching, And each one they serenade, And then on the Square they are stopping And an Indian dance is made. The citizens all enjoy it, That dance around the square, But a policeman quickly saw it, And inwardly did swear That the students all are devils, And up to devil's tricks-, But now a yell fills the heavens, And the " cop " is called to his wits He pounces down on the students, As a cat jumps at her prey, But not like the little rodents, Did our students run away. For they had had permission-, The Mayor's our friend, you see-, And so the large procession Moved on in mirth and glee.

N X ,Z ,Pg-'ZF IVIONOLOGUE. DID you hear the news? No, well I'm married-yes I'm married. Oh there is nothing like courtship, love is one sweet dream-and marriage, that's when you wake up. Why is marriage called a honeymoon, honey because its full of cells, moon because it comes high. Boys, when you are courting your girl put your arm around the small place of her back and when you are lip to lip pop the question, and do it as if you was joking, if she says no you can say that you was only in fun. But when you do get married give the parson some change, don't give him all you got, no, no, save some for a divorce. Look at Brigham Young. I-Ie had 33 wives. See the trouble he had when Christmas came around, and when all his wive's mothers came. No wonder he is dead. I would also say that a woman's first duty is to get married, even if she has to support a husband 5 just think of the many young men that need a home 5 and ladies when you get married remember that you are your husband's better half, yes his better 75 cents, and I have known cases where a married woman was the whole shooting match. A woman can talk through a knot hole in a fence to another woman and never miss a word. A woman has more presence of mind than a man. I was out boat riding with a young lady one day and the boat upset, we sank together and arose parted. I managed to get hold of the boat, when I saw her throwing her arms wildly in the air. I shouted Alice, Alice, give me your hand. She blushed and exclaimed, Oh this is so sudden ! Ladies I must also call your attention to the fact that Irishmen make the best of husbands as they are all in favor of home rule. Every woman knows how to handle a husband, but some times the husbands wonlt let them. A good wife is like a garden seed, you never know the value of either until they are planted beneath the ground. And I know a number of married men that would do a little planting. When a girl of eighteen gets a proposal of marriage, she says " Mother who is he ?" At 25 she says, " Ma what is he?" And at 40, " Mama where is he?" Woman was made out of water, she's got an ocean in her head, a water- fall back of her neck, a crick in the back, some times a cataract in her eye and waves on her forehead, streams of ribbons, water blisters from tight shoes, springs in her waist, and she never gets water on the brain for she don't dry up enough. How often- we talk and write of woman 5 you remember we used to say Mary had a little lamb. But it's different now, the way they dress and hold them up, it's changed to Mary's got a little calf, but what would thisworld be without woman-what would it be, why one big stag nation. But boys, remember one thing, never marry a woman taller than yourself, that's not falling in love, that's climbing up to it.-Lodefs fh'!a1'izj1 Budget. V FASHICNABLE FABRICS, .

' 539 HAMILTON STREET. xiii THE KICKING IVIULE. ONE morning Squire johnson was riding his kicking mule to market when he met Jim Boggs, against whom he had an old and concealed grudge. The Squire knew Boggs' weakness lay in bragging and betting 3 therefore he saluted him accordingly. " How are you Jim? Fine morning." " Hearty Squire " replied jim. " Fine Weather. Nice mule that you are riding. Will he do to bet on?" " Bet on ? Guess he will. I tell you jim Boggs, he's the best mule in the country. " " Great thunders ! Is that so ?" ejaculated jim. "Solid truth, every word of it. Tell you confidentially, I am taking him down for betting purposes. I bet he can kick a fly off any man without its hurting-him. ' " Now look here Squire " said Jim, " I am not a betting character, but I'll bet you something on that myself." " jim, there's no use-don't bet," said the Squire. " I don't want to win your money." " Don't be alarmed Squire. I'll take such bets as them every time." " Well if you are determined to bet, Jim, I'll risk a small stake-say ive dollars." ' " All right Squire-you're my man. But who'll he kick the Hy off? There is no one here but you and I. You try it.', "KNO " says the Squire, H I have to be at the mule's head to order him."4 " Oh, yes," says Jim. " Then probably I'm the man. Waal, I'l1 do it, but you are to bet ten against my five if I risk it." " All right " said the Squire. " Now there's a l-ly on your shoulder. Stand still." And the Squire adjusted the mule. " Whist Jerrey " said the Squire. The mule raised his heels with such velocity and force that Boggs rose in the air like a bird, and alighted on all fours in a muddy ditch, bang up against a rail fence. Rising in a towering passion, he exclaimed : " Yaas, that is smart ! I knew your darned mule couldn't do it. You had all that put up. I wouldn't be kicked like that for fifty dollars. Now you can just fork them stakes right over." " No sir," said the Squire 5 Ierrey did just what I said he would. I said he would kick a fly off a man without its hurting him, and he did. You see the mule is not hurt by the operation. However, if you are not satisned, we will try again as often as you Wish."i No Jim brushed the mud off, looked salemnly at the mule, and then, putting his hand thoughtfully to his brow, remarked z " Squire, I don't think the mule is hurt 5 but I didn't understand the bet. You can keep the money. xiv A KLONDIKE LETTER. Klondike October der two times.

' " ETHEL J' asked the teacher, when Ethel had grown quite large, and began to think a little, " whom do the Ancients say supported the world on his shoulders ?" " Atlas, sir." " Yes, quite right. Now if Atlas supported the world who supported Atlas?" " I suppose he married a rich wife," replied Ethel thoughtfully. JUDGE : 'L Have you anything to offer to the court before sentence is passed on you P" PRISONER : " No judge. I had ten dollars but my lawyer took that." " Is THIS seat engaged, Miss ?" asked a young swell of a bright looking maiden on the train the other day. " No, sir," she modestly said, " but I am.', A BASHFUL young man was escorting a bashful young lady, when she said, entreatingly: 'Jabezf don't tell anybody you beaued me home." , " Don't be afraid " replied he, "I am as much ashamed of it as you are." A GOOD- way to find a girl out is to call when she is not in. AN advertisement once contained the following startling information: " If the gentleman who keeps the shoe store with a red head will return the unibrella of a young lady with whalebone ribs and an ivory handle, he will be suitably rewarded."

For a long time he had a monkey and a organ und he used to go around playing ' A Hot Time and All Coons look different und alike to me,' until one day de monkey died und Christopher couldn't get another monkey so he took tor drink und made a monkey of himself. One day he got tired of vorking so he said, 'I vill discover something, So he tookeded his organ und vent to de palace of der King of Spain und de King vos broke, but Columbus didu't know dot und commenced playing 'I Need de money' in Italian, und de King answered back 'Go Way Back And Sit Down.'
