As our old friend and fellow sufferer, Billy Shakespeare, would say, " In sooth it seems like a book ; it looks like a book ; Ye Gods, it is a book. " Yes, sad as it may seem, it is a book — the Nineteen-Seventeen Agromeck, and we .shall feel well repaid for any work we may have put on it if it may meet with your approbation. " As usual " this year has been especially uneventful, but we have tried to inject as much local color as possible. We must admit that it contains many things that we had not originally expected, and also that a number of things that we HAD expected are not in it. But " the best laid schemes of mice and men, " you know, and all that, so we can ' t say we hadn ' t anticipated .something of the sort, or that we ' re bitterly dis- appointed that some of our hopes failed to materialize. Indeed, we don ' t think that we could do any better if we had it to do over again, and most probably not so well. In fact, so far as our doing it over again is con- cerned, the thing we ' re most positive about is that we wouldn ' t. We may as well take our readers into our confidence ana tell them what we had hoped to do in this book. We ' re afraid that if we don ' t tell them they ' ll never find out, and we don ' t want to miss getting credit for good intentions at least. First we wanted the book to be distinctive, that is, we wanted it to possess some essential work or tone of its own, by which it might be dis- tinguished from other volumes of The Agromeck. Then, we wanted the book to be representative, by which we mean that we wanted it to be a picture, both grave and gay, of the year 1916-17 at A. and M. We wanted the picture to be clear enough so that when the day comes, years hence, as come it surely will, not once but many times, to every one of us, when we shall recall (with Oh, what depth of longing!) Campus and Class Room and Dorm, and the friends with whom they are peopled now, we may bring out this book and find them all again. We hoped that in such a time pillar and shade, long grown dim thru the mist of years between, might stand forth clear again as yesterday in the turning of these pages ; and forms once loved but long forgotten might start again into life : that in such an hour this book might be our guide along many a forgotten path in the pleasant Land of Long Ago. —J.

Bridges, J. F. Williams, and R. C. Young were prevented from returning last fall. Williams, who returned on parole, finished with us. Bridges and Young were unable to rejoin us. We deplore their absence, and hope that they will return and complete their courses with the Class of Eighteen. Our Class has taken a high stand in scholarship, as is shown by the monthly honor rolls. In athletics, we are second to none. We have given to the football team : Artz, C. C. Cooke, McDougall, Sullivan, Tenney, and Van Brock- lin, names that will not soon be forgotten by lovers of the gridiron sport. Gammon, Hodgin, P. W. Johnson, W. M. Johnson, and Wheeler are well known to baseball fans. W. M. Johnson and Temple represent us in basket-ball ; while McDougall, Milsaps, and Scott have won honors on the cinder path. We have been well represented on the intercollegiate debating teams — D. A. Monroe, W. K. Scott, and J. F. Williams having won more debates than any other three A. and M. men. R. W. McGeachy was the A. and M. representative at the intercollegiate oratorical contest held at Durham last year. As a Class, we have been active in promoting the best interests of our College. At the suggestion of Captain Broadhurst, we introduced important reforms in the dining-hall. We led in the movement which made every student a member of the Y. M. C. A.; and it was our Class, under the energetic and effective leadership of L. E. Wooten, that made the new concrete bleachers possible. While the Class of Seventeen is not the largest Class that ever finished, it is safe to say that none has left a better record. — Historian 30 SENIOR CLASS OFFICERS J. E. McDoUGALL President W. C. DoDSON Vice-President L. E. WOOTEN Secj-etai-jj-Treasurer W. E. Matthews Historian E. P. Holmes..... Poet T. P. Simmons Prophet SENIOR CLASS POEM Some neiv little Seniors have been launched on the sea, Some new little minds are uyifurled: Here ' s hoping the world may he good to them., And they may he good to the world. The College has taught them how to he men, By patience and guidance arid rule: Here ' s hoping the school has been good to them, And they may be good to the school. Their love is pointing the icay they should go, Since these new little minds are unfurled: Here ' s hoping she may be good to them, And they may be good to their girl. The anchor is pulled from the harbor of hope, Noiv the ripples cease to run: They are sightless now, and all is still, And the Seniors and fate are one. — E. P. H. 31 John Welsford Artz Old Fort, N.

His successful career as leader of various organizations demonstrates his merits as a leader in the business world. Besides his interest in activities. " CLINE " has averaged above ninety in all of his ork for four years. His straightforward manner, coupled with undying energy, and the desire to do things, will surely lead to the toimiost rungs of the ladder of success. 37 James Wesley Cooper Henderson, N. C.

Why. he once gave a party in his room to the Textile Seniors. which. accordinK to all reports, was unique in local history. It seems that some things really unusual did happen, but reports have been sup- pressed. He and " Doctor " Parsons go to all the shows, and most of the barbecues : they have even been seen at dances, am! at Church, by the weary and watchful. Why is it we must say Good Bye to such fellows? George Chandler Cox Cullowhee, N. C. " G. C. " Electrical Engineering Age, 21; Height, 5 ft. 10 ins.; Weight, 173 Honors in Scholarship, one year ; ' .

It may be that he has many of the eccen- tricities that go to make up a genius; but then he is the real article, which is shown by his do- ing the seemingly imi»ossible in taking the full course in three years. He apparently has an un- bounded capacity for hard work, and for " Starting Somethinj;. ' " It has been an awfully good thing for the peace of mind of the Faculty that he has been rather busy with his work. 38 Francis Edwin Cox Red Springs, N. C.

There were two hundred and fifty of us then, and we were ambitious. We left home with a lump in our throats, and a heart full of misgivings. Upon our arrival here, we found things more or less like we had anticipated. We were given a warm welcome. But we enjoyed it (?) and, after the first letter from the folks and from Her, we settled down to work. In a few days we held our first Class meeting. It was the most dis- orderly meeting ever held, but we managed to get organized. After the mist of useless talking had cleared away, we found ourselves with the fol- lowing officers: F. B. Whitaker, P)-e iide)it; C. B. Skipper, Vice-Presidoit; and E. F. Lewis, Secretaru- After the inaugural exercises of the above- named gentlemen, we adjourned. Our next important move was the organization of a football team. A few weeks later, it upheld our hopes by playing a no-score game against the Sophomores. This was the only con- test of the season for us. When basket-ball time came around, we fitted out another, and watched it. We nearly won. And we laid the foundation for a good team next year. The next autumn we shed our greenness, and turned gay — but not for long; for being a Sophomore was not all fun. We began the year by electing the following officers: E. F. Lewis, President; B. B. Stockard, Vice-President; and P. L. Canady, Secrefaii . In a few weeks we began our football practice and, before long, we had a strong team developed. It captured the place of Class champions that year. In the spring, we had a good basket-ball team, but it was kept from the championship by losing a game to the Juniors. And then, last fall, we came back as Juniors — serious-minded and grave. We are just beginning to realize how important is our work. This year we have the following men as our Class officers: M. M. Dew, Presidoit; T. A. Belk, Vice-President; and R. A. Crowell, Secretarij. No Class football was played last fall, and we did not organize a team ; but we put out a good basket-ball team this spring. It won the Class champion- ship. We have given some good men to the athletics : Lewis, Ducey, and Leeper to basket-ball; and Lewis and Evans to baseball. True, Bill is not with us now ; but we always like to remember the time when he used to pitch the " Red and White " to glory in the seventh inning. In our life here, we have made new friendships, and developed new ambitions and desires. We love our alma mater — as all of her sons do love her — and in a few years more we hope to be doing things out in the world of which she will be proud. — Historian SOPHOMORES 103 THE CLASS OF NINETEEN (Composed in Blank Verse by the Class Poet) We came to A. and M., as green a lot As e ' er this campus saiv; but being sure (Thanks to our elder frie)ids) that we were here To be improved, we set ourselves to learn By carrying pails of water for the Sophs. We loorked, they say. quite faithfully at this, And soon knew what the rattle of dippers meant. So many useful things we daily learned, About humility and service to our betters. That when the year was over we were pleased To find ourselves a Class above the " green. " We had a nice reviving rest, and then Returned as men determined; we were here To work, and wo)-k is u-haf u-e hare kept up (The Faculty don ' t think so. but they ' re wrong). Ana as for sports, our Class has stood around The top, for our good teams are hard to beat. And when the Varsity wants a man to fill A vacant place in certain teams, to our Old Class they come to find a good support. In fu ' o more yea)-s, our time for partiug u ' ill Be here, and then we ' ll scatter out To run the Univeise on the most modern lines. So fellotvs, on; let ' s pull along together. And show the folks of our beloved State That we are here to win what comes our way. 104 SOPHOMORE CLASS OFFICERS Z. T. KOONCE - - President J. S. Hathcock - Vice-President J. C.

G. 1 06 SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY OF THE SOPHOMORE CLASS HE month of September, 191.j, beheld the advent of a new Fresh- man Class at A. and M. — two hundred and seventy-five strong. We came bearing the usual characteristics of a College Fresh- man, characteristics already too well known to bear rehearsal. Our awkwardness partly wore off with the passing of the first month, how- ever, and with the aid of the Seniors we organized ourselves and elected our Class officers. Chapin was elected President; Clute, Vice-Presidoit; and Lincoln, Secretary a)id Treasurer. We also adopted the custom of wearing Freshman caps, and were very well pleased with the idea. (We were sorry to see the plan abolished this year.) Owing to the large num- ber of students composing our Class, many of us were compelled to make the " Shacks " our place of abode until the new South Dormitory was com- pleted. But we entered our collegiate career with a determination to gain both knowledge and experience, and at the end of our first year we emerged from college a little wiser, and with a slightlv more serious view of life. We came back in the fall of nineteen-sixteen transformed into Soph- omores, mildly egotistic. Some even presumed to produce a downy patch of mustache upon their upper lips, without fear of having it shorn off. On the morning following our arrival, our Class numerals were blazoned forth in the accustomed places. Indeed, huge red and white Nineteens appeared in spots unapproached by previous Classes. Altho this move may have aroused dread in the hearts of the Freshmen, their fears were groundless, for we had met and decided to uphold the non-hazing policy of A. and M. Our Class has made a good showing in all branches of athletics. We elected Vanderburg manager, and H. A. McGinn as captain of the foot- ball team for last year. As players on the Varsity football team, we fur- nished Homewood, Lawrence, Weathers, Wagoner, and Chapin. For Var- sity baseball, we gave Weathers and Wharton ; and among our men who have made excellent showing in track athletics are Click, Potter, Williams, Murrell, and Stoffregen. Our Class has been reduced considerably in numbers since last Sep- tember. Some have decided to try their fortunes elsewhere ; and not a few gave up their college work to protect Uncle Sam from Mexican in- vasion along the border. Yet, it is natural for us to think that the present Sophomore Class is still the best in the history of our College. Here we end our Sophomore year at A. and M. We are thankful to those who have helped us to make the first half of our college life po.ssible, and to those of the Faculty who have aided us to gain that for which we have striven; and we consider it no dishonor to feel proud of having done the tasks which depended upon our own endeavor. — Historian 108 freshmen , 109 FRESHMAN CLASS POEM In high school we sirived to yain the great Iniuii ' lidgc Sufficient to enter ns at A. and M. College; Our studies were hard; we u-orkcd like a man To reach our high goal — .4. and M. so grand. Noiv we are here, three hundred and more; Where ' er you look there ' s Fresh meat galore. We ' re ' strong in studies, as well as in number; Str07ig in our play, and strong for our slumber. A rap on our door, in conies fhc O. D. With a notice for Fresh to go see P. G. There ' s no use to argue, nor try to explain. For every effort will all be in rain. The Registrar will say, " Mr. Fresh, I see. That last night you failed in your room to be. " There ' s nothing to say, so a line you get, And you fitid experience the best teacher yet. To the Sophs above us we bow onr heads. Sweep all their floors, and make up their beds. Buckets of water to their rooms we bring — For the Fresh to the Sophs is a dear little thing. The jokes are (luite jolly, and all played in fun — We realized this, when college life we begun. We ' ve learned to receive, and our plans we make; For next year the Sophomore places we take. With drilling, in fact, we were all ignoninl. We soon learned the art from our new Commandant. At first, our actions were awkward and rough ; Yet we soon ' came efficient, steady, and tough. The Companies were formed, each man to his place; The steps of the leaders we all tried to trace. While drilling, we strive for a goal so grand — A " Captain, " at the head of a Company, to stand. The first month past, and flunk slips ive found; Campused next month, we went not up town. But we studied hard, with all our might; Each week the following month we got our " one tiight. Our kind jirofessors we greet irith a smile. Thanking each one for his teachings and style. To our ruling Seniors, ive all give three cheers. And wish them success thru all their years. freshman class •I- officers h. s. hill -- - - president plato durham vice-president j. n.

This is the largest number of new men to ever register at A. and M. College. Altho entering with a greater number than any previous year, we were as green as any preceding Class. The first month seemed like a year to us, and we went to bed at night with a feeling that our peaceful slumber would be disturbed before morning. It was a sight, to see us peering under the bed-covering before retiring, to see if our old friend Mr. Zi]) had been hidden in its folds by some unknown hand. After a short time, we began to feel more at home, and to know each other better, so that we began to rest easier and pay more attention to our studies. On September 23, we elected Mr. H. S. Hill as Presideni for 1916- 1917. We elected Mr. Plato Durham as Vice-President, Mr. E. L. Quillin as Secretary, and Mr. J. H. Williams as Treasurer. At our next meet- ing we elected the following officers : Mr. R. L. Black as manager of the football team, Mr. F. D. Cline as captain of the basket-liall team, Mr. H. S. Hill as Class Poet, and Mr. A. L. White, Jr., as Class Historian. In athletics, we have made a good showing, altho there were no inter- class games. We furnished several men to the Varsity eleven, and the prospects are that we will furnish several men to the basket-ball squad. The outlook of the coming baseball season is that we will some good material for the baseball squad ; and also the track team. So, in conclusion, we wish to extend a friendly hand to all upper- classmen, and thank them for their many kindnesses to us while Fresh- men ; and also to assure them that we expect to have the largest and best Sophomore Class that ever represented the Red and White. — Historian ■M THE REGIMENT, IS i •? . j ' v: ■SS0. 4 :o»l E W.Z.LL10T T OOLO d CAPTAIN BROADHURST THE REGIMENTAL STAFF COMMANDANT H.

As we ' ve toiled omvard up the rugged path Toward the long-sought and cherished prize. We ' ve borne unmoved the teacher ' s ivrath. And striven always to look wise. Oh, many a time ive ' ve answered all as one The voice of duty as it made demand; A7id followed, learning daily ere the sun Had disappeared beyond the timeworn sand. And since we ' ve reached at last what seemed to all Four years ago to be the end of strife, We now must surely heed a greater call, And bear the burdens of a larger life. We know not what the future holds in store; Nor what to us approaching years may bring; But this, indeed, we know, if yiothing more, That sacred mem ' ries to our Jiearts will cl!)i( In years to come, ivhen drifting far apart Out in the ivorld our busy lives to spend.

NOTES HE work of the College Young Men ' s Christian Association has !| gone steadily forward from the very beginning of the school year. !i Increased interest in every phase of its work has been manifested along many lines, and by more students than ever before in the history of our A. and M. Association. Among the first and most significant forward advances of the year, in behalf of the Association, was the action taken last Fall by the whole student-body which resulted in placing the future membership of our Association upon an absolutely new and solid jjj basis. The action as taken and as agreed upon by a written petition, 11 and then signed by the student-body, was this : That at the beginning of each of the two terms, commencing with the second term of the present session, every student, of his own volition, should pay over to the Bursar one clollai- as his dues, thereby paying two dollars in all for a full mem- bership in the Association. This amount is a reduction of one-third of the regular cost of a membership, and was thus made possible only on the condition that every man became a member. This innovation has long been desired by many who have felt a keen interest in the work of the Y. M. C. A., and now that it has been adopted, and is working successfully, we can not overestimate its im- portance from every standpoint. With every man as a member, and with a splendid building and an equipment such as we have, the Associa- tion ought to be the biggest, the most vital and democratic organization in College. Our Association has long since been the center of the religious; life of the College, but we now rejoice to see it coming into its fuller purpot:e of administering to the whole life of the whole student-body. As it is the headquarters for all athletics, the Literary Societies, the College Pub- ; ; lications, the social life, etc., of the school, we also covet for it an even a ( greater life, where every man may feel that it is his Club, and that he has j a voice in the shaping of its policies. We are glad, therefore, to see j | evidences of a growing interest along this last-mentioned line in the | j increased numbers who are frequenting the building. Leading men are 1 1 more and more taking part in our varied activities. Our Sunday night j j meetings have increased in numbers by almost fifty per cent. Mission Study, once a dead subject, has two hundred and seventy-five men eni-olled in its classes. i While we recognize many failures in the work, we feel grateful for what has been accomplished, and we believe the Association will continue to grow in its influence and usefulness as it strives to create and main- tain a healthful Christian influence in the College.

Old Mother Hubbard, Went to her sanitary, washable, all-enamel icebox, To get her impoverished canine an ossicle (bonelet) ; But when she arrived there. For miles you could hear her swear. She found that the sanitary ice-box contained but a vacuum. And so her registered, pure bred, prize winning, blue ribbon canine was compelled, much against his wishes, to subsist on a diet consisting of a gaseous mixture composed of one part oxygen and four parts nitrogen, and whatever else he could get. 4. 4. .{. HE HATH METHOD IN HIS MADNESS -Shakespeare 247 FAREWELL, OH, OSCULATION! News Item: Professor Knutt, of Oshkosh University, suggests that Congress be required to pass a bill whereby a gentle pat-pat shall be substituted for a kiss. He states that nearly one-tenth of all the diseases to which man is susceptible are caused by the deadly germs which are con- veyed thru kisses. We will now find the poets and novelists using such forms as these in their new compositions: From the last lines of a popular novel : " Billy (the hero) takes Louise (the heroine) in his arms and tenderly placing one hand under her cheek he stoops and gently presses a long and lingering pat-pat upon her ruby lips. " And in the dime novel: " Deadeye Dick rises and thunders across the stage. ' Pat-pat me, now. Pauline, ' he exclaims savagely, ' or I swear by my false teeth that you will rue this day. ' ' Never, never, ' she re- plies, ' will I pat-pat you, Deadeye, until you reveal to me the hiding place of your ill-gotten gold ' . " And in Snajipy Stories, when Per- cival Algernon is writing his daily letter to Lucille: " Oh, Beloved, if only you were cushioned in the shelter of my arms, and I could look into your eyes — eyes filled with love antl passion, then would I press madly upon your lus- cious lips pat-pat after pat-pat, un- til again I would awaken thy former passion from the apathetic ashes of forgetfulness.

X WEST RALEIGH, N. C. NO. Z EDITORIAL RUMORS OF AN ENGINEER- ING DEPARTMENT We have heard it rumored re- peatedly in the past year that there either is, or is to be, an Engineer- ing Department at the North Caro- lina Agricultural College. How- ever, we hope it is not true; and anyway we don ' t believe it. It would be tragedy should our beatific somnolence be disturbed by these pushing, slide-rule-slipping sons of equations ! And now a word to the wise. Let us gather ourselves together, arouse all our sleeping brothers, and rise in our might to push back this invasion of our lotus fields. For, mark my words, should this department be established, it is possible, nay it is even probable, that some few of our faculty might become contaminated, and expect us to do a little work occasionally. It must not be ! It shall not be ! " The Y. M. C. A. does not fill the need of the students for spirit- ual stimulation, " says James W. Cooper. In a stirring address to those interested in spiritual affairs at this College, Mr. James W. Cooper scored the Y. M. C. A. The point of the address was that the spiritual side of the col- lege life was not stressed suffi- ciently. A large and enthusiastic audience was present, and his every remark was applauded to the echo. A committee consisting of J. W. Cooper, chairman, with Carl Har- ris, W. C. Clinard, C. B. Skipper, and N. Burfoot as assistants, was appointed. This committee is to be known as " The Committee for the Promotion of Spiritual Influ- ence at A. and M. College. " SCIENCE AND ART OF AGRI- CULTURE IN GREAT DANGER Many grave dangers have threat- ened the great agrarian industries, from the days of our simple grand- fathers to the days of their yet simpler grandsons. We have watched in silence, and seen man after man lose interest in his work and drop from the ranks of this great profession. And so we feel called upon to speak, as best we can, in the hope of saving some of our young men fi-om the toils. My son, beware of these Raleigh chickens. They look innocent. So does a charge of dynamite. But both are capable of producing dis- astrous results if improperly han- dled. It is indeed distressing to note the number of young men who THE DEAD AS NIGHT have enrolled themselves in the courses in " Applied Poultry Chas- ing. " But it is indeed heartbreak- ing to stand on Fayetteville Street, and note the zeal with which our young men go about the affairs of the " Chicken Lab. " Will they rise at four a. m. to get your breakfast ? Will they em- broider your galluses? They will not! So beware, unwary youth, of these black-cow toping movie- devouring chickens. They will lead you from the straight and narrow path that leads to the clod- hopper and the cornpone. BARBECUE THE EVENT OF THE SEASON Brilliant Coup of Agricultural Department Whose was the master-mind that originated the idea ? Let him come forward, and be acclaimed! Promptly as the first whistle blew for chapel, on Monday, No- vember 23, every man in the Agri- cultural Department started for the Agriculture Building. There assembled, they marched a short five miles to the chosen site of the banquet. And by the time they had gone thru all the mud they were a sight ! By working with speed, the twenty acres of corn that must be shucked to pay for the use of the ground was finished by noon. Then all assembled for the glorious repast. Barbecued pig, soda crack- ers, pickles, and water. What more could anyone want? Hon- estly, it was almost as good as one of Hurley ' s feeds when Rufe is in a bad humor. Several men almost got enough to eat. And then we had the privilege of paying for it. Yes, it was a great day. But the best is always the last. And so it was in this case, for the best part of this glorious day was the aftermath. For the faculty was so pleased with this idea that they declined to deprive themselves of the pleasure of our company over Thanksgiving, and they let us have classes on Friday, and drill on Saturday, too. This is no time for false modes- ty. Let the man who originated this idea come forward. What we won ' t do for him ! A. AND M. TO HAVE PACK OF TEA HOUNDS Ever since it has been in exis- tence, A. and M. has been keeping pace with the rest of the colleges of the South, in every phase of college life. However, it remained for Squire Blue, of Pinehurst, to discover that we are in danger of losing the proud record. Need- less to say, but little time will elapse until the Squire has organ- ized a Pack of Tea Hounds that will outclass anything in the State. Of course we have had species of the " Tea Hound " here all the time, but up to the present it has been rather a forlorn and neglec- ted animal. The Squire ' s plan is to collect these animals, organize them, and see that their interests are well looked after. And, once organized, and with such men be- hind it as Blue, Powell, Temple, Dodson, Grier, Wilson, and Harris, THE DEAD AS NIGHT it goes without saying that nume- rous blue ribbons will be dis- played in the trophy case at the Y. M. C. A. in the near future. All projects of this sort, of course, need some member of the Fa culty to act as sponsor, and to look out for the interests of the organization in general. Squire Blue feels that we are particularly blessed in this respect, and that in Dr. Frederick he has the ideal man for this position. Under his guid- ing hand, the Tea Hounds will be assured a long and prosperous ca- reer. In line with Captain Broadhurst ' s sug- gestion at the beginning of the year, that the upperclassmen endeavor to give the Freshmen some cultural training in the mess hall, the Dead As Night wishes to make a little suggestion which might prove of benefit to the incoming Class of Nineteen Twenty-One. This suggestion is to the effect that a committee be se- lected from the present Junior Class, which shall meet and formulate a set of rules, giving, so to speak, a few hints in regard to the art of eating. These could be issued in the form of a pamphlet, and mailed to the prospective students at the same time that the Y. M. C. A. dissem- inates its book of misinformation com- monly called " The Freshman Bible. " The help of the Department of Domestic Science at Meredith might possibly be of assistance. We would suggest the incorporation of the following hints, which we have gained thru long experience. 1. Never blow on your soup to cool it. Fan it with your hat. 2. Don ' t try to make more noise in eating it than your neighbor. You ' ll do it without trying. 3. If you must inhale your soup, use a straw. 4. Don ' t put your napkin under your chin. Wear a soup-colored shirt. 5. Never mix beer with your water- melon. 6. If you expect to enter society, learn how to entertain an olive before your arrival. 7. As you approach the table, make a running jump for your chair, endeav- oring to be the first one seated. Per- chance the football captain will see you, and note your speed. 8. If peas are served, don ' t use your fingers. Borrow your neighbor ' s knife. Two are faster than one. (The experts at the Experiment Station have an- nounced that they are perfecting a square pea, which is guaranteed not to roll off the knife blade.) 9. If you spill your coffee in your neighbor ' s lap, instantly assure him that you really didn ' t care for the cof- fee, anyway. Tell him not to mind it at all. 10. When a meal is finished, they sometimes bring you a small dish filled with water. This is a finger bowl. When you have soaked your thumbs in this long enough for it to acquire a bouil- lon appearance, shake off the water on the floor, and wipe your hands on the tablecloth. EAT AT HURLEY ' S FEED SHOP LAUGH, AND GROW FAT Ve wil! feed you for less, and less than you can get anywhere else Our water is of value, and our butter will supply strength for the day ' s needs Our biscuits are guaranteed to hit the mark at fifty feet SEE A. S. CLINE FOR TABLE PRIVILEGES SOCIETY NOTES The Tuesday Afternoon Club will meet on Wednesday of this week instead of Thursday. The meeting had been originally scheduled for Friday, but on account of Mrs. Jones ' last baby having cut a new tooth, it was changed to Saturday; but because of the circus it was moved up to Monday, Sunday being a holiday. The date was later changed to Tuesday, as the almanac had forecasted rain for Monday. Its meeting at that time, however, was prevented, due to the Fashion Show at the school- house. The President, Mrs. Smith, announces that the meeting will assuredly be held on the day appointed (unless something happens to prevent). —J. B. P. KEEPING HIS WORD — HE TOLD P. G. THAT HE WAS GOING DOWN TOWN TO GET HIS EYES TREATED 249 WHAT FOOLS THESE PORTALS SEE! T was a late Kail day. 1 was coming out to the College, via the railroad track, and had just left the station, when I noticed another wayfarer walking along the tracks just ahead of me. His dress, manner of walking, and general appearance excited my interest to such an extent that I quickened my steps in order to study him more closely. When I had drawn up with- in a few feet vi him, I slowed down, and carefully gave him the " once over. " His attire was J... peculiar that it reminded me {if such a thing were possible) of a combination of the habiliments of Don Quixote, Samuel Jdhnsnii. and the lamented Ichabod Crane at the time of his last appearance. His method of walking was a mix- ture of the German goose step, the half-and-half, and the modern fox trot. My interest was so great that I hurried my pace until I reached him, when I tapped his shoulder, and apparently surprised him from a deep reveiie. i 7Tr .?frt r y V r r i.iru a ir. " Hello, old Scout, " I said; " you appear to be a stranger in these parts. " " Well, not exactly, " he replied ; " Uio I haven ' t been here before in over hfty years. " This reply stimulated my al- ready overtaxed interest to such an extent that I asked him what his name might be. He slowly turned, and after giving me a long and quizzical glance, he placed his hand on my neck and drew my head down until he could whisper in my ear, " I am the Wandering Jew. " This reply so startled me that I could only look at him intently for the next few minutes. altlio a thousand tjuestions occurred to me later which I could have put to such a celebrity. Noting my amazement, he irew closer, and began: " Yes, " he said, " I am llic- one known as the Wandering Jl-w. 1 am the bridge across the centuries. I wantler ceaselessly fiom place to place. It requires aliout a half -century to make a complete circuit. My last visit to Raleigh was just after the close nf the War between the States. The town had fared much better than other Southern cities, and I had expected to find a modern and enterprising city when I relnrneil. Hut, alas, it is the same old town, living in the traditions of the past instead of the possibilities of the present ilay. Un k ' " ' y passed in bygone ilays. l ' - uii llu- old buiUlings have not rliaiiucd nuicli the market-house, theater, ami Union Station are the same old relics as in former days. I ' .ut 1 undci st.ind that a College has l)cen built up in the western part of town in the last few years. " " Yes, " I said; " we have a College now, of which tlu- whole State is justly proud. " " Well, well; I ' m glatl to hear that; and it would give me great pleasure to spend the night, and look it over. " " Yes " ' he sai ' I atnthe ' V iideTmy ' Jevv ' . ' " Telling him that i was one of the stiulents, 1 insisted upon his stopping with me fi.-r the night. We were now just emerging from Pullen Park, and as we climbed out of the raihuad cut he caught his first view of the Collesrc buildings. " Ah 1 eautiful, leauttfull " he exclaimed, after resting his eyes upon tlu-m for a few moments, and then turning and casting a lingering glance backward his eye lit upon the massive dome whicli surmounts the Home for the Feehle-Minded, Turning quickly to me, h exclaimed, " And what is this, another College? " " Oh no! " I replied; " that is Dix Hill, the Insane AsyKini, " " The what? " he asked. " The home for the nuts, the bughouse boys, the crazy people. " " Oh, " he exclaimed, a gleam of intelligence lighting his face. " This college then is an entirely diii ' erent kind of place, I take it. " " Sure, " I replied; " this is where the youth of the State come to learn things, to get an education. " He appeared so interested that I l)romised to sliow him the wdiole outfit, and took him down to the Mess Hall for supper. At the table. Eb. McPhaul was talking about his schedule. " By Golly, " said Eb., " youghta take Sunny Jim ' s Farm Management. It ' s a crip course ; you can go to sleep on class ; and the old boy don ' t mind how much you cut. " My friend picked up his ears. " What is that — cutting? " " That means not going to your classes. " I informed him. " They seem very delighted to be able to, er, cut, " observed he. " Sure they are. Everybody is. " ' Why don ' t they abolish these use- less and tiring classes, then? " He was an extremely stupid per- son. I explained to him patiently that classes were not useless, that they were here to go to, and there wouldn ' t be any College without them. He only said " Hum-m-m-m " in a pungent tone, and dropped the subject. Shortly after, a " hot dog " came hurtling thru the air, and landed with a thud on the end of the table. My patron looked at it for a few moments, and then picked it up with his fingers and examined it closely. " Wliat is this? " he inquired. " A weinie, a hot dog, a sausage, " I told him. " Is it supposed to be an article of food? " " Yes, " I said : " we have them quite fre(|uentl thirty days. " " What! " he exclaimed. After I had explained, he looked at it closely do they throw them around in this manner, if they have to pay for them? " " Oh, just because they are not supposed to do it, ' " I replied. " But didn ' t you say this was a College — an institution for the training of youtli? ' " Yes, " I told him. He only shook his head, and again uttered his significant " Ilm-ni-m-m. " Oh Billi I You are such a. perfectly ador- able dancer she snid. They soak twelve bucks for and then asked. this every " But why 251 Later in the evening, we went over to P ' uUen Hall to a dance. My friend was perfectly amazed to see the large crowd working away at that form of violent exercise called the One-Step. " These people — they are assuredly mad? " he inquired. ■•Xo, no; not at all! Why some of our foremost, most intelligent students are here! " I sai.l, indignantly. " Ah, it is some religious festival, then? " " Well, not exactly. It is a form of — of diversion. They do it for pleasure. Don ' t you see? " No, he didn ' t see. Thot yap couldn ' t see the simplest things. But his attention was distracted by a passing couple. The girl, a small fluffy little thing, murmured to her partner as they glided past, " Oh. liilly, you are such a perfectly adorable dancer, and so big and strong. " Hilly swallowcil two or three times in expressible emotion, and asked her for three dates that week. " The lady admires the young gentleman very much, doesn ' t she? " observed my friend. " Don ' t you believe it, " said I; " she ' s simply playing politics — pulling his leg. " His glistening eyes widened, " Wha-a-a-t ! playing politics — pulling his— " 1 hastily turned to him, convinced that he could understand nothing. " She ' s — oh, she ' s ileluding him, fooling him, playing him for a sucker, leading him on. In reality, she thinks he ' s a poor simp — which he really is. That ' s what most girls think of the men they go around with, men take it all in, get infatuated, and spend all their money on them. " " The men — they believe all this?

In the morning, I took him over and let him look at C " . . .. and let him smell the swimming pool. After that, we went to the postoffice, where he saw three hundred men wait in line thirty minutes for the mail, with two hundred and fifty of them getting nothing. Then to the Library, where he saw the chairs filled with students reading Life, Puck, and Judge, while Shakespeare, Milton, and liurke remained undisturbed on the shelves. I took him over to the Agricultural Ruilding, where he saw three hundred Freshmen taking Agriculture; and two hundred of them had never been down to the barns. In the afternoon, we went out to the Athletic Field, where he saw fifty men from a studentdjoily of seven hundred out for football. I took him to the Parade Ground, and showed him the " pride " the students took in their drill. He had said nothing for the last hour. When I told him we had seen practically everything, he found his voice at last. He thanked me for my kindness, and said he was going — immediately. " Where to? " I asked. " Back to Di. Hill, " he replied. " The folks over there admit that they ' re crazy. " But you see the room, ami jnit him to bed. as he was get- Allen and P. O. ; then down to the Y.

Only three days before they had had a violent political argument. Words had been passed, and an actual fight narrowly averted. Apologies had been made (for public appearance), but I knew that the feel- ing of antagonism still e.xisted personally At eight-thirty, I opened the door as silently as possible, and took him into the living-room. I knew that everything would be all right if they did not see each other, and this would be easy to do unless Father should come down. Really, it was an awkward situation — to have one ' s Father and the person to whom one was secretly engaged in the same house, and " at outs " with each other. A slight noise upstairs — Father was slipping on his shoes. Was he merely going to the bathroom, or was he coming down? His door opened — then came the sliding steps along the hallway. Ah — on the stairsteps — down, one, two, three — he was coming — there was no way to avert it. I was teri-or-stricken — more sliding steps — the knob on the door clicked — he was coming in ! With a scream, I rushed from the room, and slammed the door. I visualized the scene — the look of surprise on Father ' s face — then anger — the sarcastic words — the rush across the room — the uplifted hand — then the blow. And Billy loved me too well to strike back. I could not let Father do this. I rushed in ; but it was too late. Father had hit him — for a cigar. —J. B.

Behold he meeteth a damsel at a svmimer resort, and they are Twin Souls. Yea, for a whole week he is perfectly devoted ; and when he departeth for the city he is filled with sorrow. He cla.speth her hand mightily, and voweth never to forget her; he maketh promise saying : " I will write thee tomorrow. Beloved " ; and lo the damsel believeth him. Upon the first day she watcheth eagerly for the postman, and is astonished when he bringeth her nought. Upon the second day she goeth herself to meet him, and inquireth seven times at the hotel desk if the mail hath come. And upon the third day she weepeth privily, and can not be com- forted, for there is still no letter. And upon the fourth day she arises m her wrath. Yea, she is furious. She gnasheth her teeth, and tosseth her chin, saying: " Oh, very well ; he shall see, he shall see ! " But upon the fifth day she is reconciled. She casteth him out of her thoughts. She fixeth her hair a new way. She beginneth to " take notice. " She observeth that there are " other men. " She findeth another " Twin Soul. " And upon the si.xth day she hath forgotten him entirely. (For a man ' s love thriveth upon hope, but a woman ' s faith must have something more substantial to feed upon.) And upon the seventh day his letter arriveth. And lo, the maiden receiveth it with surprise ; she openeth it casually ; she skimmeth it languidly. She passeth it to her chum, saying: " Look who ' s here. Even he concerning whom I was so silly last week. " And her chum yawneth, and maketh answer, saying: " I never could perceive what thou sawest in him. " And thus endeth a perfectly good flirtation. Verily, verily, as a small boy shuddereth at the thought of taking castor oil, as a woman shrinketh from the thought of telling her age, so doth a man shy at the thought of the writing of a letter. And a handwritten letter from a man is a greater proof of devotion than a thousand spoken promises. Bushwa! " — J- B.

She ' s very changeable. When I I I first see her, she ' s a darling. She embraces me in her warm i ' " i clinging grasp. I close my eyes, and feel her soft langourous touch on my hair, my eyes, my lips. Over me there steals a delicious feeling of relaxation. She soothes my emotions. I lift my face in order to get the full benefit of her warm kisses. I adore her. And then she changes — She becomes cold. Her icy touch freezes me, and my gooseflesh arises. She makes me shudder. My teeth chatter. Her kisses are icy, and I draw my arms over my head to ward off her caresses. Finally, when I can stand it no longer, I leave her. Yes, she is a variable little thing — my sweetheart ; but I love her. My old shower-bath. —J. B. P.
