GA. i.»ll »r G " Ltri l, ' ( Sntrobuctorp A NOTHF.R issue of Cyclops now greets you to remind you that we have spent another year % together at iJahlonega, and to serve in after years as a reminder of those happy days that came and went so soon. To our fellow students we would say, receive it as yours and let % it recall to you the feeling of fellowship we ought to have as students of the same institu- tion. To our older friends we would say, try to judge it from a school boys ' point of view, and remember that the apparently frivolous things in it have a more sober side than appears at the first sight. Not all of a human life ought to be serious; enough of it is necessarily so. 1 hanks to all friends, especially members of the Faculty, who have generously helped us with money, advice, and good wishes. iEDlTORS.

Legator. Miss Lizzie Shed Historian. M. C. Gay . Poet. j. n. BLACK, B. B. S. John 1). Black, alias (jcc Donclnmo, Gainesville, Ga., has had many experiences during his stay with us. Once on being asked to explain rotation of crops he said, ' ' Well-er, Professor, it is something like the rotation of the earth. " He possesses a great deal of company spirit. On being called upon by the Professor of Mathematics to demon- strate a proposition in " Trig, " he began by saying, " Com- pany . " (speaking of the complement of angle A), etc. The only " Fresh " requiring daily drives for his health — hence honors in the history department. He is a member in good standing of the midnight pandemonium depart- ment. He is a great ladies ' man. He took a business course in order to get out of Latin. He is a military man from his heart; looks swell in uniform; is a great athlete — was known to catch in two games. He keeps the Com- mandant busy writing permits for him to go home. He is Dawson ' s greatest production. C.J. BROOKSHER, B. B. S. C. j. Brooksher, Dalilonega, Ga., is but a child, so less is expected of him. He is commonly known as " Josh " or " Phillip ' s pal. " He is famous as a mathematician on account of the way he completed three branches of math- ematics in his graduating year. He is a fluent speaker, but cannot trust his oice. His every day expressions are " Hello, Fatty, gimme a chew. " He gets on the sick book almost every Sunday morning to escape formation. He is another one of our best athletes. He does not care much for Society, but will sometimes play " tucker. " He calls the roll for " B " Company. C. B. BROWN, B. B. S. C. B. Brown, Midriver, Ga., is very quiet, but when he can be induced to say anything it is either " Doc Neal " or " Artillery. " He smiles continually but never laughs. He gets very much excited and takes a prominent part in the ' ' April Fool ' s Day " escapade. He is chairman of the ' ' . n- nual " committee, yet he is always listening impatiently for a motion to adjourn. He learns his lessons; is liked by his classmates; easily teased but exceedingly good- natured. He has never been known to be angry since entering school. He will probably take a post-graduate course next year. A. A. BURCH, B. S. A. A. BURCH (Captain Alex) t-ntered college in 190s, and on account of his extraordinary aptitude for things military and his ability as a leader, he was immediately promoted to the exalted position of corporal. After that he soon became captain, which position he has held for two years. For some reason he thinks he should attend the Faculty meetings. He is a victim of Cupid and mathe- matics. He is on friendly terms with every one living on ■ ' Chestatee " street, and has a tendency to saunter down the street toward the Baptist Church. . ' Kfter graduation he contemplates locating in Dahlonega and practicing medicine. He is usually very kind to his men, but when he becomes " agitated " his shrill voice may be heard quite a distance. G. N. BYNUM, B. i. (i. N. Bynum, Pine Mountain, (ki.. knockL ' ti for ad- mittance at the doors of the N. C. A. C. in the autumn of 1904. He strayed hither from among the craggy and pic- turesque peaks of Rabun County. There has never been a corporal who felt the weight of responsibilit ' more than he. He is of athletic build but not athletic. In 1905 he decided to make a football team, but after receiving a sprained finger and a black eye he has let that feature of his education severely alone. He is seldom known to speak a complete sentence. He deserves the champion- ship as a ladies ' man, but is sometimes so timid that he will run from a six year old girl. He has never been known to make a formal call since he has been here. He can tell more long-winded preacher stories than all of his class- mates. He is one of the few that ' ' stood in " with Dr. Harper. Especially fond of his drill regulations. His favorite expression is seldom used except when excited, " Huh! sure it is, " V. W. CASTLEBERRY, B. B. S. Ward Castleberry, Dahlonega, Ga., takes a great delight in signing himself " V. Ward. " Whether times are good or bad he has a perpetual smile — one that wont wash oFF. He likes any kind of weather, but more especially summer, as he is very fond of a " Fan (nie) " . Any day after his laborious work in the business department, you may see him sauntering slowly down " Clarkesville " Street, taking recreation in the " usual way. " He talks like a girl and sometimes talks to a girl. He objects to being a bachelor if it can possibly be avoided. J. E. CREEL, B. Agr. J. E. Creel, College Park, Ga., the Father of Athletics, is commonly known to the boys as " Daddy Creel, " better known to the matron, however, as " Bushy-head-Creel. " He is the " baby " of the class— weighs only one hundred and ninety-eight pounds. He burns his light after taps, during which time he smokes his pipe to reduce his flesh. He takes a leading part in everything— esped iWy in drink- ing dormitory cream, and when asked what he did with it, calmly replied, " 1 mi.xed it all with the skimmed milk. " He takes great delight in putting the new boys on sentinel duty. He is a member of the " Has Been " club. He is very studious, but invariably studies the wrong les- son. His career at the N. (j. A. C, on the whole, is an exceptionally successful one. E. T. DENHAM, B. Agr. E. T. Denham, Eatonton, Ga., has not been with us long, but long enough to get very angry because he was not made Cadet Major in his second year. He resigned his corporal ' s place and joined the signal squad. He is the society boy of his organization. He is Creel ' s shadow. On one occasion he gave way to his temper and killed several of his father ' s mules. He has not time for athletics, as he once disfigured his nose in a game of football. It is told on good authority that he is a near relative of 1-, x- Cjovernor Terrell. C. W. FRASFR, B. Agr. C. W. Fraser, Hiiiesville, Cia., thinks that everyont- who does not take agriculture is an infidel, heretic, or some such person equally as bad. He is a piney woodsman who thinks a great deal of his dignity. He is a great leaper, leaps all the way from private to sergeant, and from " B " Class to Sophomore, and takes a diploma. He is haunted by a military genius, and is noted for his skill in drilling a green squad. One of his commands is " Column left two times, follow me, harch. " He can be seen almost any night gazing at the stars and talking to himself of the future, wondering if he will ever be master of some South (jeorgia farm well equipped with a machine of perpetual motion which will do all the work and at small expense. He wants to know if he can make his knowledge of agriculture so practical that he may look at his South Georgia cow and tell the price of butter in New York. M. C. GAY, B. 1. M. C. Gay, Sharptop, Ga., intends to wield the rod. He is sure to make a good teacher as he has been very studious, always more interested in affairs of the " Head " than of the heart. He likes everything connected with college life, but more especially drill and athletics. He is usually very cool headed, but once, while drilling, he became e, - cited and said, " Column to the right a little. " He has a pronounced military bearing. He always seems in good health, but is continually calling at Dr. Head ' s. He thinks himself above everyone in his class-in inches anyway. He often takes violent exercise in order to reduce his flesh. After all is said and done, we admit that the " Admiral " is one of the star members of our class. MAUDE JACKSON, B. B. S. Maude Jackson, Dahloncga, Ga., after finisliing lier " Fresh " year remained at home for awhile. Love, how- ever, of learning was so great that she came hack to receive a diploma with the others. She is our class prophet and is loved and admired by every one of her classmates. She spends most of her time in the Business Department. She would not cut a period for anything, but does not mind cutting chapel exercises on special occasions. She is very sweet-tempered but a trifle contrary. Kuterpean. H. V. JOHNSON, B. I. H. V. Johnson, (jainesville, Ga., is so very quiet tliat it is next to impossible to record anything concerning him of a ridiculous nature. He and the young ladies are ex- ceedingly fond of each other, yet he looks at the sky whle talking to them. He likes Latin, " math, " and the library, and takes great delight in building fires for the librarian. In the circles of the Literary Societies he is known as the " Peanut President. " Fhis came about by his being ac- cused of accepting a bag ot peanuts from his roommate as a bribe in one of his decisions. He dreams of going West after graduation to instruct the Western youths. He has a B. 1. course, but has also studied Agriculture with a view of joining this agricultural knowledge with the domestic knowledge of some young lady. He leaves, however, all this to be settled in the future. H. NEAL, B. R. S. Harry Neal, of Shiloh, Ga., Harris County, First Ser- geant Company " A, " first saw the North Georgia Agricul- tural College in 1904. He fills his present place so well it is hard to think of him as having ever been anything else. His history is hard to write because his whole life is made up of what he is going to do. He is very much given to boasting, and the cadets say he cannot take a joke. He says he can take one as well as anybody if it is the right sort. So intent is he on preparing himself for the busy life of a business man that he has been known to escort a young lady to a social gathering at the Dormitory and then leave her and work on his books until the time to escort her home. Diligence brings success, and such dil- igence as that tempts the Historian to give way to fancy, trespass on the prophet ' s province, and write up Mr. Neal ' s career that is yet to come. We shall alwavs think of him, however, as the First Sergeant. BRUCE RAY, B. S. Bruce Ray, Newport, Ga., entered college in 1903, and during his stay with us he has made a most remarkable record. He is and has always been the student of our class and has won the esteem of every one with whom he has come in ct)ntact. So many medals have been won by him that he had to order a special trunk in which to keep them. He is a great ladies ' man. Once while on an encampment, he went into society, and Madam Rumor says that he fell desperately in love. He thinks all the girls are dears, but claims that all the pretty ones live west of the Blue Ridge. He is the renowned major of the N. G. A. C. He has gotten out a patent on the ofiicers ' " About face. " He is a leader in all literary work, but is especially devoted to athletics. G. K. RICH, B. Atrr. G. E. Rice, Flowery Branch, Ga., commonly known as ' ' Grits, " has had a very checkered career at the N. G. A. C. Once, wishing to weigh two bushels of corn, he went to Prof. Gaillard and asked for his analytical scales. He is very brave, and not afraid to face danger in any form. It has been told, however, that he changed roommates three times trying to get away from the mumps and then took them. He is very much in love with the ladies. Al- though very small, he makes up in quality what he lacks in quantity. He talks all day and never gets tired, and says he wants to be commander-in-chief of something — anything, it does not matter what. LIZZIE SHED, A. B. Lizzie Shed, Hoschton, (ia., has been in every class from " B " to Senior. She is very studious When elected class historian she was very much elated, thinking it was an easy job. Before finishing, however, she was forced to call on her classmates for assistance. She is especially devoted to holidays and idle periods. Euter- pean Nature and Value of Education. N tliL ' final analysis, education is the aim anti end of life anti livini;. It iiol onU ' adapts one III) liis en ironment. but also develops within the indisitlual the capacil) ' and cajiahilily to modify and control it. In the large it presents the universal solvent for all problems, theo- retical or practical, that confront man in his irrepressible c]uest after truth. Ultimately as has been characteristically obseryed by one of earth ' s most inspired prophets and seers, salvation in the broad sense of the term depends upon the understanding of Life and the Universe, including man. Confessedly, then, the serious question of education is one about which all should be vitally concerned. " This 1 call tragedy, " says Thomas Carlyle, " that there shfiuld one man die ignorant who had ca- pacity for knowledge. " No loved and loving parents should suffer the one entrusted for a little while to their kindly care and benign protection to enter the arena of life with any less preparation than the best they can give. Kntailed estate may be lost by fire and flood, but the royal bequest of an education is an endowment inalienable that abides vvith us still, even beyond the confines of this material existence. 1- en from a financial view-point the educated man has the greatest capacity and competency to conserve, mullipi ' and in fine to enjoy his wealth. For sovereigns may purchase the choicest libraries, but it takes the refined and cultivated mind to hold high converse with departed aLithors; may procure sublime art galleries, but beauty is only half canvas; may employ orchestras, but it requires a delicacy trained faculty within to appreciate the dulcet harmonies without. Thus education brings man in tune with the Infinite and dis- covers to him all that is real and eternal. To-day as never before there is admittedly a great demand for the educated man. In every realm (if Iniman activity and endeavor there is found a premium upon brain p:nver. For the young especially, just entering upon life ' s journey, the future is radiant indeed with the colors of hope. Heir of all the rich and ennobling legacies of the past, blessed with the glorious advantages and opportunities of the present, dominated by lofty ideals and disinterested motives with the ision splendid leading e er upward and onward, the student ' s career is inevitably attended by high achievement and grand success. F ' rom the world of insensate matter man is turning his thought toward the universe of mind. Ihe object at the smaller end of the telescope is a greater mystery than the infinite host of flaming orbs brought within the range of vision — the wonderer is the wonder. Ideals are now recogni ced as implacable facts and forces — real as paving stones. The old science occupied itself with the study and description of the outward finite world of fact: the new science is to soar into the inner, infinite realm of reality and truth. Self-discovery instead of world-discovery is the keynote of the present thought. There are within man ' s being latent and unde eloped powers and resources of the which we are unable to scan the faintest rudi- ments, and which ask no less than the infinite cycles of time in which to find full-orbed expression. We are evidently and palpably entering upon the threshold of a new era in the world ' s history, and the educated man — the thinking man--holds the reins of influence and will naturally gravitate to the po- sition of greatest honor and trust. 7 he man of ideas will be pre-eminently the man of power and potency. Thus one ' s value to societv will be determined by the number and character of the ideas he entertains. Fducation makes the mind fecund and creative, enhances the sense of individual worth by breaking down all barriers that cabin and confine, opens up nev ' worlds of truth and beauty; but ideas after all are powerless unless crystallized into character and conduct. So besides inspiring thought, education inculcates love for humanity, which supplies the true stimulus for service. Without executive ability the scholar becomes a mere bibliophile, or book-worm, isolated from the practical world of affairs, and incurs the sharp censure which Goethe puts into the mouth of Faust: ' ' I ' ve now, alas! Philosophy, Medicine and Jurisprudence, too. And to my cost Theology; With ardent labor studied through, And here I stand with all my lore. Poor fool, no wiser than before. " Moreover, knowledge without principle to regulate and dire;t it into chan.iels of highest usefulness, is a dangerous and deadly weapon. Knowledge, indeed, is a power, but as so often witnessed, this energy may be misdirected, or misused. Pducation is as requisite to an ideal villain as it is to an ideal citizen. Therefore education in its full and final import is life, and its mission — which is the purpose that runs through the ages-- ' Aill not be consummated until knowled., ' e shall cover the earth " as t!ie waters cover the sea. " —Alex Burch. Class of 1908. In the pleasant days of spring, While the woods with music ring, With happy songs of birds, Still stroll we through the halls of college, Trying to gain a little more knowledge, ' Ere the time for parting words. Soon will the class of nineteen eight Be called to leave each dear school-mate, Alumni ranks to join; Commencement means commencing life. Full of pleasure, toil and strife, And a seeking after coin. Tho ' leave we must dear old N. G. A. C, Yet true to her we ' ll ever he; And should we ne ' er return. We ' ll watch her proudlv from atar, While her gates of knowledge stand ajar, . nd loyal hearts within us burn. Happy days in the city of gold, In memory fond we ' ll e ' er hold, And cherish friends here made; On each, life ' s blessings we would shower A name and fame had we the power. For a life of dut ' well repaid. M. C. GAY, Class Poet. Senior Prophecy, ONF morning recently, I had been working in the laboratory for several hours trying to find some fluorine in a compound that Professor (jaillard had given me to analyze. I had applied all the principles 1 knew and all my ingenuity in the effort, but seeminglv in vain. My search was as fruitless as the quest " of the absolute. " I decided, however, to make one more attempt. F.verything was going well. I had just put the mixture over the alcohol lamp and was intently watching every change elfected bv the heat. . s it began to boil the liquid assumed a greenish hue. a mightv struggle seemed to be taking place in the test tubes. Fach molecule seemed alive and fighting for supremacy. .Slowl) ' bright bubbles began to rise and tloat olf in the air. . s each passed the top of the vessel it exploded, and presented to my astonished eves a picture in which the principal actor had a strangely familiar appearance. I watched them with breathless interest and shall trv to describe them to you as they appeared to me. The first picture was of a large agricultural college in .South (jeorgia. Students were going to and fro seemingly animated by the jov of work and delight in their surroundings. I watched them for some time, when I noticed two men of scholarly appearance walking down the front steps of the main building. They were evidently discussing some grave problem and my attention was instantly arrested. .As the picture became clearer I recognized both of them. Ihe president was none other than Mr. Bruce Ka ' and the professor was Mr. Denham. Fhe next bubble revealed a picture of a live town in North (ieorgia. The buildings were beautiful and up-to-date and over one of the large store buildings hung ihe sign, " ( " .AS IFl- BFRR Y iV BR( ()K- SUFR, Dealers in Cjeneral Merchandise. " 1 had hardly remarked this fact when a beautiful little cottage in the suburbs of a city came into view. Ihe mistress of the home was gathering roses in the yard, and her bright happy face made it easy to see that she was the same Miss Shed, though she had now added to her name. ■Another picture was a business street in a large city. People were going in every direction, darting in and out of the high buildings — all so much alike. From a doorway over which was written ' ' State Bank, " a man of about thirty-fi e years of age was coming. The lines of thought and care on his face easily identifieil hull as Mr. Harry Neal, the banker. It was several seconds before the next bubble arose and I was becoming im|iatient. I stirreti the boiling liquid ; up shot a big shining one and it showed me a scene in the far away Philippine Islands. A large school building was situated on a hill. 1 he school had just been dismissed and the teacher was closing the building. His face was very familiar and I tinalh ' recognized him to be Mr. Bvnum. , fter leaving school he had intended enlisting in the army, but he must have liked the Philip(iines so well that when the troops were ordered back to the United States, he applied for a discharge so that he might teach in the Phil- ippines. The next picture was of a crowded court room. Every one was waiting expectantly to hear the judge ' s decision. Slowly the»judge walked to the front and, although his hair was streaked with grev and his step slow, one could not but recognize Mr. Gay. The next scene was a town in South Georgia. In one of the stores a drummer had just gone to sell some goods. The merchant was Mr. Brown, and to my surprise the drummer was Mr. Black. They were talking of things more interesting than goods. The next bubble pictured a scene in the country. A man and his wife were sitting in front of their home late in the evening talking to a neighbor, Mr. Fraser. They were deep in the discussion of p ilitical c]uestions of the day. Mr. Fraser was just convincing Mr. Kice, at whose home they were, that he sliould vote for him for representative. My eyes were next attracted by the picture of a stout, prosperous looking physician, leaving his ol ' lije for a long visit in the country. The doctor resembled .Mr. Burch and 1 took it for granted that it was he, as he was going to study medicine after leaving school, and come back to Dahlonega to practice with a near relative. A picture of the faculty of a Western university was the next scene that came before my eves. The faculty was composed of about thirty members and among them was the picture of the Professor of History, and the name, Prof. Johnson, was written below it. 1 had begun to wonder if none of my classmates v ' ould distinguish them ;lve5 in athletics, for se ' eral of them had shown a great fondness and abilit ' for that s:ien;e. Suddsnlv a large park appe.ired. It was crowded with laughing, shouting, jostling humanity, whose attention seemed fixed on a group of men struggling near the center of an open space. It proved to be a fojtball gam: and the ' ' blue and white " were about to triumph. On the side line a big, athletic felhjw was madly te.iring ba;k ami forth, missing no detail of the game. On closer inspection I saw that he wore the winning colors and was Mr. Creel, the physical director of the North Georgia Agricultural College. The next bubble slowly dissolved and before me stood a huge manufacturing plant which bore the sign, " FIRE-WORKS MADE TO ORDER. A SPECIALTY OE ALL KINDS OF FIRE-WORKS WHICH WILL NOT GO OFF AFTER BEING IGNITED UNTIL ONE HAS HAD TIME TO GET A SAFE DISTANCE AWAY, FOR INSTANCE, FROM A DORMITORY TOTHE OPPOSITE SIDE OFTOWN. " The owner and promoter of this business was standing at the office door, and his name was Mr. Daniel. I stirred the mixture again hoping that the next bubble would be brighter than anv of the others. I waited and waited, no bubble arose, and 1 am still waiting and honine; to find the magic bubble which ' CIO o holds my fate. f -( Junior Class. F. C. Cavender President. E. 1). Willingham Vice-Pres. C.E.Power Secretary. Miss Fannie McGuire Treasurer. C. Burnett ._ Historian. E. J. Cavender Prophet. Flower: Red Carnation. History of Junior Class, 1 908. 50MF one has said, " The conditions of conquest are always easy. We have but to toil awhile, believe always and never turn back. " A similar thought must have influenced the minds of the ten members of the junior class. .-Ml, with one tiny exception. Power personified, began to climb from the lowest steps (jf the N. C. A. C. Failing to avoid toil, believiii! that under the guidance of our able professors we must inevitably rise, there has been no inclination to turn back. With all modesty vve claim that " .Math " has been no stumbling block to our class. We absorbed the ability to reason and draw conclusions from a logical leader —all praise to ' Daddy " Barnes. So in other subjects, all honor to the professors. Until the Junior year, the agriculturists of the class questioned whether thev had been wise in choos- ing their course. The introduction of the cream separator has removed all doubt from their minds. It has been proved that pure cream is an excellent lubricator for the peculiar mechanism of the college student. 1o pass over the names of the members of the class, without some characterization or caricature, grown dear to us from long association, would be equivalent to a history of the achievements of Bonaparte, barring mention of his marshals. First on the roll is Cavender, F. C, our dignified Quartermaster Lieu- tenant, who always made an excellent substitute in case of the absence of the adjutant. What he has learned of militarv tactics during his four college years is incalculable. As a surveyor he became famous throughout the whole class. ( ' avender, E. J., was fondly styled " Class Chaplain. " Since the latest anniversary of Lee ' s birthday he has been discussed as " the distinguished Phi Mu orator. " It was love at first sight. Everybody fell in love with jerry Davidson when he came and entered Freshman class. From the very first everybody said " jerry " with a vocal caress. Fven Capt. Williams fell victim to the spell and gave him a corporal ' s place at the first promotion. He served faithfull) ' as class artist — failed always to get the desired results. He is a notorious athlete. T. O. Galloway, affectionately called " Togo, " is liked by all, and loved bv one. .Adjutant, athlete agriculturalist, champion debator, and orator. The following warning was overheard: " Sa ' ,Togo, when you begin speaking, please remember, the longer the spoke the greater the tire. " Crawford Gurley entered ' ' B " class while still wearing " Kilt Skirts. " He spent his time increasing his height in order to impress his classmates with his superiority. He specialized in color study and has abnormally developed the clothes-wearing faculty. By him the Junior class has been furnished good " points " on how to dress to the best advantage. (3f the five girls who were with us when we were busy " B ' s, " only Miss Fannie McGuire has remained faithful. .She is our class treasurer and the treasure of our class. Charlie Edward Power is a power in the academic and military departments, also in athletics, in name. The irony of fate has placed our broadest students last on the roll. " Cene " Willingham and Henry Whelchel won distinction and appreciation, not only of their class, but of the entire college, by making the mining engineering course a possibility. They are the only ones who have " held fast " since the organization of the department in 190s. To make practical his class-room work, Henry obtained employment during last summer ' s vacation in one of the Lumpkin county gold mines. While at work the e.Kplosion of a dynamite hurled him to the brink of the grave, and his friends mourned him as dead, but a kind providence gave him back to us — " Saved to serve. " Junior Prophecy. After completing my course at the Nortli Georgia Agricultural College, 1 enlisted in the army and was immediately sent to the Philippine Islands. The only remarkable thing that occurred during my short career as a soldier was that I saw or heard something of each member of the Jimior Class of ' oS. I relate, therefore, what was seen or heard of this class. Before reaching San Francisco I was permitted to stop in order to spend a few days with a relative who lived in a fruit-growing and farming section of the State of California. In the course of conversation 1 learned that he was personally acquainted with C. Burnett, an influential farmer, who, he said, was a candidate for the legislature. We had hardly embarked on the mighty deep before the barometer indicated storm ' weather; dark clouds hung heavy in the heavens, the wind was surging at a frightful speed and the angry waves threat- ened at any moment to swallow up our vessel and make us the prey of the monsters of the sea. The ship was driven on the shores of Chile and, as it was somewhat injured by the storm, we were compelled to wait a few days in order to repair it. While in South America I learned that Whelchel and Willingham h.ul made a rich fmd while mining in the Andes Mountains. They had gone there a short time pre iousl -, and. being expert miners, it required only a short time for them to locate a rare treasure. We soon set sail again for our next landing at the Hawaiian Islands, where we spent about a week for recreation. We found several Americans here, some of whom were continually talking about Mr. Calloway, which immediately aroused my curiosity, and I asked, what Galloway. Ihe reply was " Togo, the president of the Missionary Club. " I lost no time in hunting up Galloway and asking him about all the other members of the class. The only one of whom he had seen or heard anything was Power, who, he said, was Commander- in-Chief of the Salvation Army in that vicinity. We sailed again, reaching without further trouble in the way of accidents, our destination. Not long afterwards, in a sharp contest with a band of natives, in which some were taken prisoners, we succeeded in capturing some others who had escaped the day before. One of these at the sight of the .Xmerican soldiers threw up his hands and cried, " American prisoner. " I was greatly surprised on recognizing this man to be Crawford Gurley in a Philipino uniform. He had been a trumpeter in the United States Army but had disappeared and joined the natives, who made him a Colonel. He would go out during the night with a few men, sound taps, then surprise the American soldiers with an attack. He was court-martialed and sentenced to a lifetime imprisonment, and it was rumored that he would have lost his life had it not been that he had been a cadet at the North Georgia .Agricultural College and for the influence of E. J. Williams, Captain Fifth United States infantry, Commandant. I was greatly surprised one day on picking up a United States newspaper to see an account of the actress. Miss McGuire, who had recently attracted much attention at the North on the stage. A short time before my enlistment e.xpired, 1 was stationed in Cuba. .

We are the famous class of nineteen-ten. And the only class that ever has been. We are the ' ' Tried and Few; " isn ' t it a shame That so very few are worthy of the name? We are of a spirit that never grows cold, Our class-room work is of value untold. That boy we call " Doc " and this we call " Flap, " Their attention you call without a very hard rap. That fellow, Mr. Ray, he sits on the right, . nd he speaks for the .Signal .Squad with all his might. He smiles not very often — every seventh year — But when he does smile it ' s from mouth to ear.

To force a separation wovdd break each one ' s heart. Our class alone numbers the beautiful twins. No mention of whom would be an unpardonable sin. Proud are we, too, of the Roses of .June, And hope the time to leave us will not come soon. But listen! There ' s another Rose, we ' ve them all don ' t you see, . nd they ' re as attractive and beautiful as ' tis possible to be, But what ' s so happy and consoling is: they ' re with us to stay, Not like many flowers that last but a day. There ' s another maiden, both beautiful and fair. Our compliments for whom extend to the chair. Not often do we find others like her, her kinfl are so rare. She ' s at the head and conducts our meetings with a graceful air. In number we are eighteen, ami much good we ' e dcuie. But in spirit there are eighteen hearts that beat as one; And after awhile when school life is ended. Our best wishes to all will be cordially extended. — Horace Kent. Officer of the Day ' s Inspection and How he Found the Sophomores During Study Hours. While making my inspection last night I found the Sophomores engaged as follows: Kent (Farmer): — Dreaming of his future cotton and corn fields. Neal, C. (Sgt. Doc.) : — Inquiring whether to go to bed or go visiting. Oliver (Reuben): — Studying football rules in order that he might learn to snap a football like Heis- man. McKee (Stickum) : — Absent from room. Found later hunting for man to report. Dumas (Brownie): — Searching for ailments best suited for riding sick book next day. FllistMT (Runt): — Writing application for corporal ' s place. Ponder (Mumps): — Troubled. Thinking how long before he will be well of the mumps. Gray (Corporal) : — Trying to work out by logarithms what lady comes next on his date book. Ray, C. (Smiles) : — Stung. — Throwing stick of wood down hall. After completi ng the inspection of the dormitories I next went to Dr. Cavender ' s and found Tom trying to invent a way to smoke and blow alto at the same time. Phillips (Flap) : — Inquiring the way to get out of French. Vandivere (Oueck) : — Only one found studying. Having completed my night ' s inspection 1 returned to my room. The next morning it was neces- sarv for me to go over to the cottage for the girls ' report. I found out what they were doing and here it is: Lillian Glenn: — She was happy, for she had found out who had gotten her Santa Glaus out of the drawing room. Louise Glenn was sitting there thinking, I suppose, of Buddie; for as soon as she saw me she began to ask questions about him. Rosa McDonald: — Well, she was the only one of the ladies of the Sophomore Class that 1 found doing domestic science. She was making fudge for the rest of the Sophomores. Frances Stanton, our beloved president, was, as might be expected, puzzling her mind with how she could best add to the many things she had already done for the happiness of the Sophomores. — O. D. SOPHOMORE CHAFING DISH CLUB. Hi ory of Sophomore Class, ' 10. SOPHOMORE CLASS being acknowledged by all comers to be the nlo t brilliant class in col- lege. 1 feel it my duty to the world to leave a record of the members of this group of geniuses. First of all is our president, Miss Frances Stanton, the fairest of the idols of all Soph- omores. Her accomplishments are manifold; they e.xtend from the explaining of a most abstruse problem in mathematics to the rendering of the sweetest music. Miss iJllian Glenn, our artist, is next only to Miss Merritt. Reading the ancient Latin authors is one of her favorite pastimes. Miss L6uise Glenn is another talented little member of our class. She is a tennis player. Miss Rosa McDonald is one of the most scientific of our fair members. She is a poet of no mean ability. " Doc " Neal is a great athlete; also a great mathematician. H. V. McKee and C. J. Hamilton are our pedagogues. 1 he former is great in French while the latter ' s ability to read Latin is widely known. Coypoviil R. C.Gray is our wonderful chemist. 1 say wonderful because his success in reducing the most complex compounds is wonderful. T. S. Oliver, otherwise " Reuben, " is an ambitious football player and surveyor. He is the most graceful of all our dancers. B. H. Phillips, the joker of our class and the most skillful " worker " of professors in college. Clark Ray, the Commandant of the Signal Sc]uad, is the bright ray of our class. Vandivere, that Sphinx-like being whose dignitv impresses all beholders, is the source of a great many good ideas and jokes. lom Cavender is our representative in the band. He reigns supreme when it comes to blcjwing alt(.). J. Hllison, that little black-headed fellow, comes from south Georgia — same place most everything good comes from. (I am from there myself.) Ponder is a fine fellow and all that, but he was caught the other day reading " Rover Boys. " He must have been trying to see how it feels to be a " Sub " again. Having finished enumerating the Sophomores and their characteristics, I reluctanllv lea ' e mv pleas- ant duty and write FINIS. ri«lKM R. J. Martin President W. Akers Vice-Pres.

As our I- reshman year draws to a close, we pause and look back to our achie ements in the past when the ' ' B " Class was pushing onward to the goal, which thev now occupy as Freshmen. All of us look back with pride to the little incident of the tree, when in defiance tothe Bible, " B " Class reaped what the Senit)rs had planted. Our game with the college has become a matter of history as any one may plainly see who keeps their eyes open as they go around the Campus. But we have no need to pursue the subject of .Athletics further, for the inquirer into such matters has only to glance at the Varsity teams to tell how the Freshmen have succeeded. in the Studv-hall the Freshman is conspicuous for his absence, and in the class room, noted for the close watch he keeps for the period bell and for his righteous anger when the Professor is daring enough to keep him three minutes over time. Thus far the Freshman has proceeded with all honor, and as we glance back at the past years, not one among us but who would like to see the mists which obscure the future rolled back so that we might see what will happen when we climb the next round of the ladder of fame and arrive at the distinguished honor(?) of Sophomore. Let us close this history by a wish that we may be as successful in our future career as we have been in the past, and in the years to come may we ever remember with pleasure the time when we were Freshman in the dear old " N.

Cyclops, t " 1 A Class, B Class, they are below, Sophomore, .Junior are above you know. The Seniors they lead out the ball, But the Freshman Class is ahead of them al Tlien Bruce, our lieldei ' , is anotlier man, Who always lands on the ball. He saves the game whenever he can. And does not shirk at all. Of lirawny men and pretty girls, We number i|uite a score; We beat the college in foot-ball. Though they count up many more. 6. Then last, but not least Comes Crawford our ' ' Crip, " W ' ho is the best in his line. He plays good ball without a slip. And stavs in the game all the time.

It would not lie fair to the girls nf our class To leave them out in the cold. Ovir Miss Brooksher is a laughing lass. Miss Duncan is another, I am told. There is Morris, our pitcher, a inuscidar lad. And Harbour, our catcher, too: Porter you know is really not liad. And . kers shows what we can do. Now here is a toast to the girls of our class.

MY class, having in a moment of temporary insanity elected me their " Historian, " it becomes my sad but congenial duty to " knock " the members of the most energetic and in all ways the best class of the College. First shall be least and the least shall be first, ergo, I must begin with our President F. H. Harley, of Valdosta, (ja.. better known as " Fitz " or " Towser. " He was both seen and heard one night violently weeping briny oceans of crocodile tears because " Brenau was not reciprocal. " In vain we tried to comfort him. Only a Teddy bear and the reciprocity from Brenau could calm the storm raging in his bosom, it is still raging. Next comes a young man whose appearance would cause the ruler of darkness to turn tail, hoof and horns, and fly with terror— James Albert Barnes, our Poet, Gentleman. He is related to " Daddy " Barnes but he will not claim it. His friends know him as " Kid. " He took Porter Springs by storm. He loves Prof. Vickery and likes Latin, but deserted both for agriculture. We can never hope to see his like again. His match was cremated in New England for general cursedness. Next is Mr. E. C. Creel, our Prophet, who is optimistic and pessimistic all at once. His arrival created a stupendous sensation: the boys were paralyzed; Prof. Richards pronounced everything rotten, and faded away; the girls had hysterics; Dr. (jlenn and Capt. Williams took to the woods, shouting for help; Prof. Gaillard swooned and Prof. Boyd forgot the proposition. Our Prophet indulges in class, in company and in college spirit at all hours; 1 cannot say whether other spirits are found in or on him or not. Mr. R. W. Cooksey is our Treasurer and Treasury. Nothing in him! He over-eats and under-eats twelve hours a day. He is one of " them things " with a " bugle " or a " bucket. " Anderson, Fred — he came, he saw and we needed a breathing space. Bell, A. C, wants to play " Basketball. " His complexion is the despair of the girls. He does his duty in a commendable manner. Bullock, S. T., is a great farmer but he " shoots craps " instead of planting them. Barnes, B.. F., is Daddy ' s brother. We pity him but cannot help him. He forgets his woes and religion only when ploughing with a cartoon " Maud. " Brooksher, P. F., horseman, rides a mule when in need of recreation. Brown, E. H., is a dyspeptic, antiseptic and sceptic. He does not believe in church formation. Birch, G. S., experi- mented with dynamite with disastrous results. He wishes to know whether or not it is best to have a stand- ing date with a girl. Baker, R. F.., first dear and only. Words fail iis. Cox, J. W., is a " Hard Shell " Baptist. He is reckless, but does not show it; wild, but seems tame. Cowart, H. C, is a violent violinist, L ' niversalist, Populist and Congregationalist. Cochran, F. P., left Chicago and came to Dahlonega in quest of an education. He is still " questing. " So far, he has caught -B-C and 1-2- on the wing. You should have seen him with the mumps; he was a peach. Christian, W. P., is famous as a society leader, popular with college girls, and wants an " A " Class entertainment to include everybody down to |ohn Austin anil Aunt Sally. Did he succeed? Clodfelter, G. F., would like to look at his football record but we cannot see it; it is too deep in the shade. Clyatt, R. 1., has a brilliant future, a shady past, and a nose that turns up at ' ' Soph " girls. He is famed for his skill in sliding under beds, but on one occasion he slid too far. ' ' Stung ' ' has a hair-raising tenor voice that recalls to us the screech of a traction engine. He only uses this voice while a rough-house is progressing. He once asked, " What is a Sorority anyhow? " He was told that it was a collection of young ladies surrounded by mystery, music and fudge. Immediately he tried to join one. He is proposer of the " Fudge Club. " Craig, T. F. — we have faint hopes for him. Darby, A., is a rough-house man of unknown capacity. Duncan, G. C, reads " Rover Boys " and " Wild West " instead of History and Math. He will be a minister, taking his te.xt from the " Tip-Top Weekly. " I- ' raser, 1). A., " Runt, " has a face which is used to advertise dormitory fare. He took the mumps and gained twenty pountls in two days! Furlow, Hal, feels lovely; looks the opposite. Violent assailant of Fresh Math., but has never reached there. Photographs may be secured by going to Grant Park and taking a negative of the " Monkey Department. " Gaskins, F. W., " Puss Junior, " ' ' Little Puss, " is bow-legged, cute, brunette. Gober, H. C, is gentle, sticky, melancholy and has a melodious voice. He was appointed class marcher and bought some chevrons. He is now a class marcher in heaven. He failed on earth and is still an amateur. Hawkins, F.H., Captain " A " Class Base Ball Team, always commands, " Squad right to First Base, Hike. " Hancock, Leon, is overbalanced by his hands. He is a Oueen, King ' s " old lady. " Holloway, 1. C, wakes up in time to wash for dinner, but does not do it. He retires after each meal. He suffers with insomnia. Hu(f, J. G., is a poet embryo — ought to be in dresses. King, R. L., has a name that implies what he wants to be. I am afraid to say what he is and cannot say what he will be. Kent, R. [.., balls up " B " Company everyday. He furnishes fun for the Battalion; is a great strategist; changes his base frequently. Kellam, .A. r- ., a resident of the " Study Hall, " receives a great deal of attention from the Faculty. Lanier, C. F. — his nose tells the tale. Boys light their pipes at its tip. He is a great orator, and insists on saying his speech twice. Miller, F. F., Bugler (?) Bungler, does not know retreat from recall. He delivers " Taps " with a maul. McCa} ' , ). C, claims eighteen years. We allow him two. When asked to recite, he shakes his head and looks mysterious. He chews his tobacco but not his food. McDonald, . ., is our Don Juan. Matthews. 1.. R., is a cherub or a chump. Roughhouses can be had in his room at any and all hours. Please call. Sargent, J. B. -of the " Green Squad. " Smith, C. H., and Smith, E. W.— no kin. Both shower moonshine on this weary iile. Townsend, E. M., is class marcher and Gober ' s rival. Lovely com- plexion! His recreation is to roll down stairs in a barrel. " Daddy " Barnes was shootint; pigs one day and came near getting Townsend by mistake. Weldon, .A. J., is a very quiet boy, but exploded when Qodfelter made his " hit " in the Dahlonega vs. Gordon game. Wallace, J. M., shakes his head and sighs in the recitation room. Watts, Jim, was released from confinement and fainted. He is known for his steady nerves. Waters, H. .A., cuteness, a beauty, a lady killer and a sport. West, W. G., and Walden, J. ' ., do the light fantastic everywhere, even in church. Young, H. H., a steady lover— his date and his heart are broken. After the brief sketches of the claims of our " A ' Class boys to fame we come to the element of our Class that deserves more credit for our success than any other, our " A " Class girls. .Misses Birdie .Ander- son, F;;nnie Bennett, Pearl Bruce, Fmily Gaillard, Emma Hudlow, Myrtie Head, Ora McKee, Annie McKee, Callie .McGee, Alice McGee, Maud Ricketts, Ruth Russell, Mary Stanton, OUie West, Stella Waters, are « ' eet sixteen. They are eager to do all in their power for their Class; they discountenance the use of " jacks: " their influence has always been exerted for the good of the Class. They organized our " Fudge Club. " They prepare the choicest dainties for our social gatherings. They have made our lives, socially, a paradise with their sunniness, their wit, their grace and their beauty. ■ ' A " Class has innumerable things of which it is justly proud. .Among these many things is the fact that there is not one commissioned or non-commissioned officer in our class, which is composed of over seventy members. There is an unwritten law among us requiring that anyone of us reduced from the gr de cf " Cadet Private " must resign his office or be socially ostracized by cue entire class. " .A " Class men must not stick " A " Class men. Our Class has a roseate past to look back upon; I have done my best, however poor it may be, to do it justice. 1 trust that all " knocks " are taken in the spirit given. The Class is now under the tender mercy of it ' s Prophet. .May his prophetic vision show us paths that lead us to pleasures, unknown and unguessed by " fJaddy " Barnes and Captain Williams. May he see our " A " C Uss boys and girls as successful in their efforts for themselves as in their efforts for their Class. ' A " CLASS. H m m 1 i.ii.m. " A " Class Fudge Club. Miss Birdie Anderson.

ONR day after straining my mental power to the limit with " Malh " and iMilitary, I sought relief in the opium pipe. After the drug began to take its effect I beheld the future lives of my classmates pass before my vision. Some lives were gay and cheerful, some sad, and others vith a swagger that seemed to defy my prophetic ability. When I reached the culmination of this trance there passed before me the recipient of the greatest honor a man can receive m this world. .Mr. F. 11. Harley, our honored president, passed. He has such bad health that it has made a trip to Gainesville frequently necessary. .Some have suggested that it was heart failure and that the atmos- phere around Gaincs iile would cure him. He told me that he had a position at Brenau as assistant jan- itor that pays him $40.00 a month, board and spooning free. We will leave him there for we know he is a permanent fi.xture. Other cadets will please call on him while passing thr.-)Ugh Gainesville. As he drifted out ot my sight, riding furiouslv on a broom, I saw some one coming slowlv down a shady lane and recog- nized my friend and Class Poet, Mr. J. A. Barnes. He had just copy-righted a book on " How to Become a Poet, " and, as he had onlv a few left, he was selling them at a reduced rate. After looking at one I Icit it my duty to purchase, as 1 did not think any one else would buy. Then he left me and passed out of my sight, but long after I heard him offering his genius (?) for the ridiculous price of ten cents, which, however, is e.xorbitant. Ihen came our Historian, Mr. J. A. Witt, lie has a great talent as a historian, but prefers not to use it, as it is out of date. He would have been a great historian five thousand years ago, but at the present lime he is a fossil. As to his future; he will be a success among savages whose mental powers equal his own. He informed me that he was looking for a wife. I think he could win one in a lunatic asylum, otherwise he will be an old " bach. " .Xs the Historian mournfulK |ilodded on his way, 1 saw Mr. R. W. Cooksey, our ( " .lass treasurer, rapidly approaching. He was eloping with the class funds. He remarked he was on his way to play a baseball team composed of cripples, and needed the money to pay the freight. In his wake came " A " Class Baseball team and their Captain, .Mr. V.. H. Hawkins, whf) passed in review. Captain Hawkins stopped at a near bv stream to get a ilrink of water. He told me he had a winning team this year. As he passed over the hill, 1 heard him command, " Squad right to first base, HIKE. " I ed . nderson hove in sight; being halted he informed me that he was in charge of a group of loving pigs. He said his life work had found him. Baker, R. F., a disappointed man, is doomed to recite to Dr. Harper eternally. We envy him. Barnes, B. F., said he was disgraced for life. He stated that he had gone to an entertainment with a girl, and having asked her how he would do for a hubby, was informed that he was too bold. Bell, A. C, has realized his heart ' s desire. He is Captain of the Basket- ball team at Vassar. Brooksher, P. F., is now a shadow of his former self. He drilled one day under Major Ray and melted. Brown, F. H., has gone where there are no church formations. Bullock, S. T., on being asked why he did not make the baseball team this year, replied ' ' There is not enough e.xercise in baseball, it does not train the eye as well as shooting " craps. " There is also money to be made in shooting " craps. " Cowart, H. C, is soured lor life. He broke his violin in despair. At last he has learned how to put his light out instead of putting it in his trunk. Christian, W. P., has realized his ambition — " star player on the Varsity. " Clodfelter, G. F., is a noted football man. Whether famous or infamous I will not say; he is too strong. Clyatt, R. I., is fated to spend his life under a bed with a piece of fudge sus- pended just above his nose and to receive minute inspection from the O. 1). Cochran, F. P. — a brilliant future is his! He will learn his lessons and know just enough English to speak it. Cox, J. W., went to Africa as a missionary; a cannibal ate him and immediately " cashed in. " Cox, C. H., President of Harvard College, has re-established the whipping post. Craig, T. P., destined to listen to a Baptist sermon all his life. Farby, A., is seen as a stone-crusher, woman-hater, booze-fighter, stump-puller, chicken-lifter, dirt- packer, log-roller, cow-puncher, bull-fighter — alias the hairy man from Ball Ground. Duncan, C C, has become a man full of prayer. He has a library of " Wild West " only. Fraser, D. . ., listen! has grown to the stupendous height of four and one-half feet. 1 he onl ' man who exists that talks with his mouth shut. Gaskins, F. W., has at last found a congenial roommate. Furlow, H. F., entered Freshman, reached " ,A " by Xmas. and is now in " B " . A great offer was made to him to travel with a show as the " Great Freak, " but he makes more money dancing to a hand organ. He is known as " The Fadies ' Man. " Han- cock, B. F., has at last succeeded in having lockers large enough to hold him put in the dormitory. He went to an entertainment, ate all he could hold, and came home with three cakes concealed on him. Huff, J. G., better known as " Hupp, " will soon be wearing trousers. HoUoway, I. C, otherwise " Shorty, " was sentenced five years for safe-blowing, escaped from Sing-Sing twice, plays the villain in " Fatty Moore ' s Melodrama. " Kellam, A. R., has at last escaped the Faculty, and is now the pride of Dr. Harper. " Oh! who will smoke my meerschaum pipe? " King, R. F., Harry Neal has at last bought his tobacco. He is now happy. Kent, R. F., otherwise " Satchel " (?) has received two medals for speaking: a brass one to speak and a gold oiio to stop speaking. He is also a great singer. The Court House wa-; contributed to him to sing a song. We wanted to hand it to him a brick at a time but he escaped. Lanier, C. F., not Sidney, was doomed to have his mouth covered with sealing wa.x. His speeches are now our delight. Mathews, L. B., now does e.xtra duty for his brother. McDonald, . ., has become a great wrestler. He has never succeeded in finding a girl that would go with him. Miller, f. !i., received his name from h is trade. He is now a leader in the ' ' Fin Band. " McCay, 1). C, is named after his home town. He has learned a proposition in geometry. We think, when he finishes, his official title will be, 1). Claude McCay. Sargent, J. B., is still speaking for his speaker ' s place. It is the hope of the class that he will finish in time to speak commencement. Smith C. H., has received a hair cut. We do not know for certain, but we think it is still he. Smith, E. W., is now a Physical Director at Yale College, and famous tor his cross-straddle hop. Townsend, E. M., Junior of the Lewis ' ' Club " is the " 66th " member, has gone down the dormitory steps in a barrel, and is now ambitious of trying Niagara via same vehicle. Waters, E. A. —I don ' t know, but 1 think he will. Wallace, j. M. No! Well, yes, yes, I think so if nothing happens. Walden, J. W., and West, W. G., have our sympathy; I see they are paralyzed and cannot buck-dance any more. Woody, ). W., otherwise ' ' Saw-dust, " is known as " One of them things. " He can h(.ld an intelligent conversation about thirty seconds. Watts, J. C, has habits that have so grown on him that he shoots pool in his sleep, dreams of the " bones, " plays set-back in the recitation room, and has the fradiator as a partner at poker all hours of the twenty-four, and is an authority on " Trumps. " His nerves are silenced. Weldon,, . j., at last has succeeded in stopping ' ' Daddy " Barnes while on guard duty, and is now looking for the man with the striped shirt. Young, H. H., finds life a dreary desert. Has a friend from . uraria that keeps him in the strut with his girl. .As the Epicures of ancient days reserved their choicest dainties for the last, so I reserved t he better, nobler and purer element of our class, " Our Girls, " for the finale. In the lives that we will live when we are gone from the cjuiet streets of " Dear Old Dahlonega " to struggle with the world, their memory will be as sweet as the scent ot a vase in which roses have been distilled. " You may break, you may shatter the vase, if you will, but the scent of the roses will hang ' round them still. " There are sixteen of them and any day you may see all members of our class looking at them with perplexity written on our faces. We cannot tell which is the sweetest. I cannot find words to express the debt of gratitude every one of us owes our " A " Class girls; we can never pay it.

If we break a rule, We are pardoned and don ' t get the maul, Seniors and Juniors are staid. Freshmen are the craziest of the lot, The Sophomores remind us of an old nuxid, " B ' s " pass and are soon forgot. But " A " Class of ' 08- They are just simply it. They are there, never late, Antl always make a hit. Freshman makes us smile, Sophomore makes us sigh. We ' ve got them skinned a mile. Our success makes them cry. You other classes, hark to me. You ' re ' way back in the shade. And to " A " Class bend the knee. Because you are afraid. Oh! Fresh, your head was a big un. But we reduced it some; You ' re slow, have no fun, " A " Class takes it on the run. We worked for the Class we love. The little we could do, we ' ve done; Soon back home we ' ll rove, But, Class, you ' ll be forgotten by none. For we ' ll remember the fun we had While we were there in the old " A " Class. Forgotten are the things that are bad, Rememliored the good ones that last. We did our very hardest best For our Class this year of years. The results do not with us rest, But we greet the future with no fears. So long a.s our Class is together as one, (And that will be forever and a day " ) Then we are sure to have the funniest fun. And make other Classes their envy repay. " . " Class, " so long ' ' but not " good-by " We ' re gone for a short three months — Vacations never fail to fly — And we ' ll come back to COMMANDANT and MCMPS. And next year! This will re|)cat The pleasures that will soon be past; But with fun we will be replete, So long as we are one united Class. Pleasures come and pass away, The truest Girl ' s love can ' t last; But we ' ll remember forever and aye. Our DEAR OLD • " CLASS. F i " B " Class ' 08. M. L. Cox. Jr - President. T. L.

DOMESTIC k-L ' I ENCE % We may live without poetry, music and art; We may live without conscience, and live without heart; We may live without friends; we may live without books; But civili .ed man cannot live without cooks. He may live without books — what is knowledge but grieving? He may live without hope — what is hope but deceiving? He may live without love,— what is passion but pining? But where is the man that can live without dining? — Owen Meredith. i ■;. - to- vv- " . The Domestic Science Department of our Colhge is a success. The work accomplished during the past year is indeed gratifying to teacher, parents and pupils. So far we have had only sewing and cooking, but new branches of study will be added as our facilities are increased. The value and importance of this work cannot be estimated and we are hoping for still greater things ne.xt year. Years ago when all well-to-do families owned several servants, the girls in those homes knew very little about domestic work, but that state of at airs does not exist now. The servant problem, which is more perple.xing every year, renders it necessary for girls in almost every household to perform the work which was once left almost entirely to servants. How necessary, then, to teach our daughters a system of Do- mestic Science by which this work can be lightened and made a pleasure instead of a burden. The girl who has the opportunitv to receive in addition to a college course a thorough training in the art of Domestic Science is the one best prepared to make life a success. This practical part ot her education is of untold value to her in after years, and to all with whom she is associated. It adds dignity to her character and, together with the culture and refinement which come from a literary and musical training, fits her for her proper sphere — the home. COOKING CLASS.

" Art is a free and adequate embodiment of an idea in a form peculiarly appropriate to the idea itself. " Although the Art Department makes no undue pretense or display, it is a fact acknowledged by those who know, that its work is thorough, progressive and intensely interesting. We believe with Emerson in " Hitching our wagon to a star, " though we often fall far short of the ideal we have set for ourselves. Our work this year has been particularly helpful and delightful because most of us are studying " art for art ' s sake, " not drawing forty-five minutes twice a week because it may have been so ordered by the committee on courses. In the Fall we brought to our work the enthusiasm of new comers longing for a peep into the wonder- land revealed by the brush and pencil, and may it be said to our credit that, though sometimes we may have grown a bit tired of drawing leaves and trees, we are still eager searchers after truth. Our (irst lesson consisted in drawing boxes, little, big, all shapes and sizes, and in every conceivable position. This period of probation being over we were initiated into the delights of sketching from nature, which only the fall of the last leaf brought to a close. Just before Christmas, as a reward of our faithfulness, we were allowed and encouraged to make dainty gifts in the form of calendars, booklets, etc., some of which were truly artistic. During January and February still life studies were the order of the day. We were especially fond of the fruit studies pro- vided the fruit did not dry up before our pictures were completed. March was devoted to making sketches for the Annual, the merits of which let its kind reader judge. Springtime brought with it a host of beautiful things the charm of which we never weary of trying to fix on paper. Our work is almost ended for this year and we can truly say that it is with a sigh of regret that we view its conclusion and the breaking up of our little band of earnest workers who have enjoyed such happy, helpful, comradeship in trying to catch and portray nature in her happiest moods. — Louise Glenn, Silhouettes of the Freshman Drawing Class.

This fact has been attested by numbers of men who have had enough experience to be capable of expressing their opinions correctly about such a matter. A man should not only know how to think, but he should know how to think on his feet; and he should know how to conduct himself before an audience and how to express his thoughts so clearly and in such a manner as to cause others to think as he thinks; feel as he feels, and act as he would act. The Phi Mu Literary Society extends invitations to those young men who will accept and make use of such opportunities. PHI MU LITERARY SOCIETY. No work forms a more important factor in college life and education than that derived from the experiences obtained in the Literary societies. Men who really achieve things, lofty and noble, in this life, must have a certain training, procured only by association with his fellow students in a capacity of this kind. The literary hall is the place for interchanging ideas on the leading and important issues of the day. Man cannot obtain the highest pinnacle of success until he has learned the lesson of self-control and the principles of right thinking and right e.xpressions. To this end is the spirit and ambition of the Decora Society. During the scholastic term of ' oy- ' oS it has shown forth much energy and ability with gratifying success. No doubt, in after years this Society will prove to be in the students ' mind a fountain around which will cling some of the choicest recollections. Decora Palae ra Society Johnson, H.

USED BY DEPARTMENTS OF THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT Strictly Non-Poisonous USED BY PUBLIC AND PRIVATE INSTITUTIONS EVERYWHERE TRADE MARK Is Now Used by More than 10,000 Schools, Colleges and Public Institutions. WHY SCHOOLS SHOULD USE CHLORO-NAPTHOLEUM All Superintendents realize that absolute cleanliness, perfect sanitation and freedom from all odors is nec- essary in conducting their school rooms This is a condition that everyone must confront. Much time and money has been spent experimenting with the various articles sold for disinfecting and purifying purposes, and much time and money has been lost. When we ask you to try Chloro-Naptholeum it is backed with the plain practical fact, that the experimenting has all been done and that it will positively do what we claim for it, or you get your money back. A scientific principal is back of Chloro-Naptholeum and one trial will convince the inost sceptical. Chloro-Naptholeum is a pure highly concentrated fluid, soluble in water, having great disinfecting, cleansing and medical qualities and far superior to carbolic acid, chloride and like preparations.
