This is not the place to rehearse it, yet the F7 X present generation of teachers ought to know to whom they are indebted for the facilities for professional education which they enjoy. Happily the chronicler has not overlooked the honorable service rendered to the cause by the pioneers of nearly half a century ago. The story has been told and with admirable discrimination by a most scholarly and capable writer, Mr. XV. L. Pillsbury, of the University of Illinois. Pew of the present teaching force of the State could pass a creditable examination upon the work of such men as Professor Turner of jacksonville, Charles E. I-Iovey of Peoria, S. VV. Moulton of Shelbyville, " Uncle Sim " XVright of Lee County, " Father" Roots of Tamaroa, J. F. Eberhart of Chicago, and a half dozen more, all of whom were veritable giants in whatever cause they espoused. Nearly all of them are memories now and the survivors are full of years and well-merited honors. Por the purposes of this paper the recital must be brief. Suffice it to say that in October, 1857, the Illinois State Normal University opened its doors to a score or so of pupils in a small hall on the second Hoor of a brick block in the city of Bloomington. Charles E. Hovey was there as principal with a small but singularly able faculty. E. A. Gastman, for the last forty years the leading spirit in the school system of Decatur, was there as a pupil. Three years later the school took up its abode in the building on the prairie two miles to the north. Those were stirring days. Hovey was soon in the thick of the fight forthe preservation of the Union, as were nearly all of his boys. I-Ie won the rank of a Major General. But I think that the work that he did at Normal always gave him the wwfmn fy..--..--...--. . ,...m,.,.,W ,.....-...,...... -nrv-f-vfrq-V io THE NOR THER richest satisfaction. You may read a line of it on a stone that stands above a mound in the National Cemetery, at Arlington. In 1869 the Southern Illinois State Normal University was established at Carbondale. It is largely through its inliuence that the remarkable transformations in popular education have taken place in what was commonly known as " Egypt " thirty years ago. For twenty years little was said or done with reference to the establishment of addi- tional Normal schools. Some ten years ago, the existing institutions having had time to demonstrate their utility, the suggestion was occasionally made here and there that the times were ripe for a Normal school revival. Opposition to the professional education of teachers had substantially disappeared. Yet it seemed a far- cry to any action on the part of the General Assembly toward the establishment of additional institutions. The remark was often on the tongues of educational speakers that U Vtfe should have more Normal schools," but, alas! the schoolmaster is not the most potential agency in securing legislation. There was little reason to hope that anything of consequence would be accomplished until men of affairs should put their shoulders to the wheel. In the thriving town of De Kalb, near the center of 'what is known as Northern Illi- nois, there had resided lor several years a most energetic and tireless editor who had spent a portion of his earlier life as a teacher. To this day he is familiarly known as " the pro- fessor." He had also served on the State Board of Education, the governing body of the school at Normal. Rumor has it that, like Cato of old, for years he was accustomed to close his public utterances with a remark that finally won the attention of a small group of wealthy, able, and very influential men. It was to the effect that there must be a Normal school in Northern Illinois and that the finger of Destiny pointed unvvaveringly toward De Kalb as its proper location. At last the new movement was on and there was no such thing as stopping it. Unlike the first crusade, which was chiedy in the hands of schoolmas- X , x xx Q ,wmv x x X -N.Jx-.0- ,. w x :L 5 .gd,y.x.u.x.v,.,v.xw.xN:m ' ., N N ' ' ' ' ..,-,spy ,. . , ,, ............... ..,... ,ml-A I - -WW ,-.--..-V--,---. -M M- A-MM - 4 5 'PH li 1XL'1JI'1'flRII7BI I2 THE NORTHER ters, men of large political influence coupled with tremendous zeal lent themselves heart and soul to the campaign. There could be but one outcome, for the enterprise was paired with a similar movement inaugurated by a like group in Eastern Illinois. In 1895 the General Assembly passed two bills which provided for doubling the number of State Normal Schools. De Kalb won the Northern school, as was expected when the character of the men who were deeply interested was understood. On the first day of October of the same year, in the presence of a mighty concourse of people, the corner stone was laid with much of pomp and ceremony, and henceforth the whole thing was only a matter of time. The plans of Architect Charles E. Brush, of Chicago, had been accepted. XV. McAlpine, of Dixon, was the successful contractor. The work moved bravely on, and in September, 1899, Editor Rosette saw his dream a substantial reality. Of course many men contributed to the splendid consummation. Senator D. D. Hunt, of De Kalb, always had the Normal School "on the side " if it was not at the center of his thought and effort. Mr. I. L. Ellwood drew his check for thousands and lent many weeks from an over-burdened business life to carry the fight to a successful issue. Mr. Jacob I-Iaish, grateful for an excepe tional success in a fine financial enterprise, devoted other thousands to the endowment of a noble library. Mr. joseph F. Glidden, the venerable and distinguished inventor of the famous barb-wire fence, donated the beautiful campus of more than sixty acres, bought from the Government with his earliest earnings, to the great cause of the scientific education of the children of the people. But space would fail me were I to attempt to do full justice to all to whom honor is due. VVherever they are they have the gratitude of all who wish well for their kind. A glance at the building as shown in these pages will give at best but an imperfect idea of its size and fitness for the purposes for which it was intended. In many ways it is quite ideal. Its extreme length is three hundred seventy-five feet and its greatest depth THE NORTHER I3 two hundred fifty. It is not surpassed, so far as I know, by any other State Normal School structure in this country. The fine auditorium comfortably seats twelve hundred. Its laboratories, gymnasium, library, society halls, school rooms, and all of its appointments, leave little or nothing to be desired. A telephone system connects all of the school rooms with the central office. A dynamo in the power house furnishes light for the entire building, runs the ventilating fans, and furnishes power for the shop. The Practice School is especially well supplied with quarters, seventeen rooms being devoted to its exclusive use. Since Northern Illinois abounds in good high schools the student body, composed very largely of their graduates, is of superior quality. The courses of study are intended to meet the demands of the modern school, hence much stress is laid upon nature study, litera- ture, and practice work in the graded schools of the town. It goes without saying that the modern Normal School must never forget its primary function. Every subject is approached from the teacher's point of view. XVith a thousand children at our command it is possible to test the teaching power of the pupils to such an extent as to determine their fitness for the work of their chosen profession. Ample opportunity to talqe charge of rooms for a con- siderable period is thus afforded. It is needless to burden these pages with a detailed state- ment of the courses of study and practice, since a postal card will bring to those who desire it a completer account of what is attempted than would be fitting here. It is worth devote a little space to the town in which the Normal School has found a home. It is conveniently connected with all of its tributary-territory. Railway accommodations are excellent. A ride of an hour and a half takes one to the metropolis of the great Northwest, with its libraries, art galleries, and schools. The location is healthful. The town is large enough to care for a student population as great as the school should ever attempt to accommodate. Material for the study of nature is abundant and at hand. There ,gnqg . . -.-.---was-.,...,. - - I4 THE N016 THEN are several large manufacturing enterprises and in consequence there is an interesting indus- trial element in the community. The climate is invigorating without being unduly severe. The grounds are finely adapted to out-door sports of all kinds. It should be added that provision was made by the architect for suitable quarters for manual training classes as well as for art and science. VVith this location and equipment the Northern Illinois State Normal School should be of genuine service to the children of the commonwealth. If it can succeed in its task of educating teachers so that those who go from its halls shall have not alone the technical preparation which the times demand, but the spirit which more than anything else begets its kind, the people will never have reason to regret the expenditures incurred in its estab- lishment and maintenance. I esteem it a wise provision which puts the several Normal Schools of the State under distinct boards instead of a single board as is the custom in certain other States. The present arrangement will naturally result in somewhat distinctly marked individualities. Normal will stand for one thing pre-eminently, Charleston, for a secondg Carbondale, for a third. For what is De Kalb especially to stand ? In the nrst place we are accenting very strongly the scientific idea XVe should like to have our pupils really comprehend what is involved in a genuine scientific movement. To this end science appears in some form throughout all of the courses. . In the second place, we desire to accent with much force the human side of the child's environment as it finds its expression in history and literature, sociology and kindred topics. In the third place, we are endeavoring to emphasize with somewhat unusual force, the practical or art side of education. XVe therefore offer wide opportunity for the actual work of instruction in the public schools of the town. XVe believe that our graduates may enter the school room of the State well equipped not only on the theoretical but on the practical side as well. As this is a Normal School, it is needless to say that every exercise is conducted with the thought that the school is neither an academy nor a college, although subserving to a degree, the functions of both. It is, or should be, what its name implies-a school for the preparation of teachers.

ISAAC In lCLI.XViDKDIJ L, 5 30 THE NORTHER ISFU-XC LEONFXRD ELLWOOD HE men who stand high in any field of activity, whether they be among the professions, in business circles, or wherever they are found, are men who have literally made ' f h' hose name appears at themselves what they are. Such has been the record o im w the beginning of this biography. Sixty-six years ago, in the state of New York, Colonel Isaac L. Ellwood was born. At an early age he began to earn his own living. Although his education had been very limited, his untiring energy, his striking personality and his unbounded determination all gave evidence that his limited academic education would be supplemented by that broader educa- tion which comes alone from contact with the world and that success would be his. He spent several years of his youth driving a team on the Erie canal, for which he received ten dollars per month. Later he worked as clerk in a store. After passing a few years in Cali- fornia during the gold excitement Mr. Ellwood, in 1855, returned to Illinois and, with the small capital he had managed to accumulate, opened a hardware store in the village of DeKalb. VVhen Mr. Joseph Glidden invented what is to-day known as the Glidden barbed wire, M . Ell ood, realizing the great need of fencing material, saw that if this invention could r w g onl be brought to the attention of the public the venture could be made to yield large Y is prohts. Finally he borrowed enough money to push the enterprise. He bought a half- . . . I t ' the invention and through his keen foresight, combined the early paten s on interest in , , barbed wire and on the machinery for its manufacture. He was thus enabled, with the t build u a igantic enterprise The growth of this introduction of additional inventions, o p g , enterprise has been marvelous. VVithin only a few years, out of what was an experiment, has developed the works of the Isaac L. Ellwood Manufacturing Company, which produce i l V ' - M' :M-"'11v--wwf-Y-.--mw.q. ,..,,..3.,.nf-: 1 . r -Q-v--rv-w:+-w-fxwv--wr-if-P1---1 1--ww-K--vs s-,ff,N...t wif-Qanuvxw-11..,.v--L-M.. .-L -' s-- -f,A- v... .....,-........mwm.m.--..

Such great results were not anticipated by Mr. Ellwood, but when the ball, once set rolling, was directed by a man of such energy in business matters, it inevitably increased in size and momentum the longer it moved. Although Colonel Ellwood's attention and energy were given to private affairs, he never allowed himself to become narrow-minded. He is one of the most progressive and public-spirited men in Northern Illinois. He has given proof of his altruistic spirit in mani- fold ways, one of his latest public movements being the securing for DeKalb of the Northern Illinois State Normal School. Colonel Ellwood devoted time and thought to this movement and was primarily influential in locating our Normal School. After the state legislature had appropriated S12-5,,OOO for the erection of the Normal School building, DeKalb came for- ward with S70,000, of which sum Mr. Ellwood gave a liberal share. Colonel Ellwood has justly been called "The Father of the Normal School," and he will ever be remembered for his liberality and his manifestation of public spirit. JOSEPH F. GLI DDEN EARLY all of the original settlers ofQDeKalb have passed away, but Uncle joseph F. Glidden is still hale and hearty at eighty-seven years. This is no doubt due in part to the fact that he was named after one of New Hampshire's Revolutionary heroes- Joseph Farwell. In 1824 the Glidden family moved from New Hampshire to New York, where they resided until 1842. Their eldest son, joseph, had been through the public school Elf home N . .U .GS vim ,wx -L.- ,f -w It Rf' F. ', xvk - rv.- . .:. Www "Lc'.., :k,R '--:L .5-X, X 1-iX ' Q.. .-. u. '-..

After spending some time on Greek and Latin, preparatory to going to college, he decided to be a farmer. However, he has always retained his love for Homer, and even to-day has his English version within reach. His two boys, born to him in New York, were named Homer and Virgil, but they did not live to. become classic farmers. Y Mr. Glidden rented farms for awhile in New York, but, deciding that land there was too expensive for him to be an owner, he, with his father, mother, two brothers and three sisters, embarked for the far west. They stopped for a time in Mount Morris, Ill., where the brothers engaged in the business of threshing grain. In 1835 the Pottawatomie Indians held possession of DeKalb County, having a village five miles north of here. At that time the government decided to move all Indians west of the Mississippi River. Thus this section of the country was thrown open to settlers. Russell Huntley, Mr. Glidden's cousin, was the first white man to settle in this vicinity. He laid claim to a large tract of land and put up a tavern at the crossing of the two state roads where the national bank now stands. Mr. Glidden bought 600 acres of the government and built himself a log house just west of these Normal School grounds. Here he dwelt with his second wife, Lucinda, for several years. Later he built a brick house in the same yard. Even this did not prove to be large enough, so after his daughter, Elva, was married, he built a hotel, where he still resides. One of the serious problems of the farmers in the early days was fencing for their farms, and, as Uncle joseph had an inventive turn, he worked over wire fencing until he made a success of it. He cut his barbs by hand and set up an old coffee mill here in these woods for coiling the barbs about the wire. XVhen a piece thirty feet long had been barbed, a smooth wire was placed beside it, one pair of ends fastened to a tree and the others at- F' sun-esmlunmnmnw fw- wiwhmaamvseasaormuvm smw.,.1.em....,....e.a,:UN .rs - ,ax-as-V gm. - 34 THE A7 0 fe 7' ff ff fe tached to the axle of a grindstone, which, by turning with a crank, gave it the required twist. For this process he secured his patentsg then went into partnership with Isaac Ellwood, a hardware merchant who was also interested in fencing. Later he sold out his interest, receiving a royalty for all wire made by the company till 1391. He invented all the essential features of barb wire machines now in use. The inventor, however, can never rest. Should any of you visit Mr. Glidden's work- shop beneath the hotel you would find this to be true, for there he has men continually working on some new patents, of which he has secnred a score or more. Although Mr. Glidden has money and to spare, he has never given up work. He looks after some half-dozen farms, owns a flouring mill, is vice-president of the Delialb National Bank and proprietor of the Glidden Hotel. He is a man of good ability and always faithful to his employees. VVhen DeKalb was making an earnest effort to secure the Normal School, Mr. Glidden donated sixty-four acres from his homestead for the institution. At the suggestion of Mr. Haish, in the presence of one hundred and fifty of our citizens, Mr. Glidden broke the soil for our building with a pencil, the pencil being considered emblematic of literature and education. Mr. Glidden has always been a public spirited man, having held city, township and county offices, and has ever been faithful and generous towards Dielialb. He has been called the f'Grand Old Man" of Delialb, and justly, His life has been an inspiration. His memory will always be held dear, and we hope Uncle joseph will be spared to us for many years to come. Q WH Vzxp v qlx' liux 1 wvwvv-Vw JP- --.,.,,..,.. , . THE NORTPIER 35 JACOB HAISH 'NE of the great benefactors of the Northern Illinois State Normal School is Jacob Haish. Standing as a leader of the barbed-wire industry, he has promoted the welfare of this part of the State, and has been one of the chief factors in the prosperity of De Kalb. He was born March 9th, 1827, in Baudische, near Carlsruhe, Germany. VVhen he was nine years old his parents came to America, locating in Crawford County, Ohio, where he acquired his education, consisting of one season's instruction in the branches taught in the common school, but his training at farm work was not meager. He assisted in clear- ing and cultivating a farm and developed a sturdy manhood and self-reliance. Honest, industrious and courageous, he remained at home until nineteen years of age, when he had a desire to try his fortunes in the VVest. He bade adieu to his parents and started for Naper- ville, Illinois, where he worked for one summer as a farm hand. There he was married, and a few years later came to De Kalb County, where he secured possession of a few acres of land. Owing to failing health he moved to Delialb, where he began working at carpentering. Having no little mechanical talent, he at length accumulated one hundred dollars besides his modest home. He then entered the lumber business on a small scale, the policy, however, which he followed soon won public confidence and secured for him a large business. In 1873 Mr, Haish first gave his attention to the question of acquiring material for fences. A large portion of his business was the selling of board fencing to the farmers for the purpose of inclosing their prairie farms. One of his ideas was to plant a number of acres with osage, and when the hedge was grown to sufficient height, to have it made into bundles, sold and woven into board and wire fences. Then the happy thought came to him T -'-' S' 1-FE:---W -1-T-1-mf. ff- -. - V -- .- - ---. .- 1:-11:5-. x - . -. ' dwi,.,u.s+navauu.wf4.u.n..w1...uw-..... Q-,M-,,w,,-..,. - .Wm-:,:1,, .

After considerable study he succeeded in producing three rods of barbed-wire fence. For some time it lay unused about the shop, except when he occasionally removed it from a pile of rubbish to ponder over its utility. One day Mr. XV. F. Pierce, a farmer, came into the shop, and see- ing the piece of barbed-wire, asked Mr. Haish how much he would take for it. Fifty cents was the price asked, and the farmer carried the wire home and used it for stopping up a gap in a willow fence. This was probably the first sale of barbed-wire that was ever made. Mr. Haish soon forgot about it, for it seemed a trivial thingg yet trilles often mold human destiny and this little incident largely controlled the life of jacob Harish. lx mls rlfbwfi sfisffa? .I i .

By way of remembrance we repeat : Little rose in society hall, I gather you in my gladness, I hold you here, dew and all, in my hand. Little rose-but if I could understand Whose you are, cost and all, all in all, I should know how wrong the wrong is. VVe have chosen old rose for our class color. It is redolent of old gardens, rose walks and dreams fair as the dream of Elaine. In the picturing it calls to mind, rose June walks on with maiden feet, adown the path of song the rose leaves blow, each petal dewed with love and meadow cheer, and in the sweetness and beauty we watch our normal school days slip away.

VVe feel that the citizens of Northern Illinois are looking to us. They have given largely. They expect much. They are trusting us and we are nerved to stalwart effort. We feel that farming lands have been taxed, home luxuries lessened, the fields early and late sown, that the cause of education might have furtherance.

As leaves and branches softly stirred and swayed An acorn fell from off a tall oak tree, As brown and perfect as it well could be. No note was taken of the acorn's fall Except by Him who hears the wild-birds callg No shout was made, no song or chant was heard, Save parting song of some lone-thicket bird: Yet there the acorn lay so closely pressed In warm embrace of earth's encircling breast That hand at play nor tread of childish feet Nor winter's winds nor storms of cold and sleet Came near the acorn in its forest way To still the life that stirred, and, potent, lay.

That's what they call us, but then what's in a name? Is it not an acknowledged fact that if Hanna Maria jane is a fine girl we immedi- X ately expostulate on the beauty of that name? For the same reason the title X of Freshman stands in high honor. just draw the analogy. The subject does Pi 9 not need development, it is a self-evident fact. Of course we are not Freshmen literally, that is to say we are not fresh in the sense our beloved juniors are. VVe just choose to get more than a whiff of a study while it is cooking, and prefer a good square bite instead. 'Tis true, the ignominious "FreshyU has been hurled at us many a time and oft, but like Shylock we have borne it all with a patient shrug. But being called by disrespectful names has been one of the least of our trials and tribulations. When I tell you through what he have passed, you will wonder that neither the graveyards nor insane asylums are not over crowded. But let me enumerate: Exactly forty-nine times have we been told that butter on the carpet is dirt, it is matter-out-of-place. VVe have been cautioned to be fhougfzffzzl, BE THOUGHTFUL, BF. THOUGHTFUL, do be thoughtful until the thought of anything but thought brings a painful thought to our thoughts. Our artistic tendencies have been quelled, for decorated plate glass is not in fashion, and even we, We, the Freshman classes of the N. I. S. N.

If the Seniors or the juniors had been admonished thus alone it would have been but the working of a retributive justice, but to place the Freshman under a like ban is but adding insult to injury.

From the platform of 32 have we thundered vengeance to Rome, " until the Kish- waukee shook beneath her banks to hear the replication of those sounds made in her concave shores." VVith fear and trembling have we entered 15, and with the fell purpose of starting a certain august personage to talking that we might escape the dread analysis. In Grammar have we gloried CPD, in Physics have we dreamed dreams, in Pedagogy have we shone- shown our ignorance. But if you want to know what a gully is, or any other fact about the earth's surface, just ask a Freshman. They are sure to know. They are walking encyclo- pedias of all useful knowledge. School room honors alone however could not have given the Freshman classes their exalted station. How about our representative in the contest? Did not the whole class through her gain a victory over the juniors? In the basket ball teams are not the majority of the players Freshmen? VVe think so, and we are thoughtful. Also another significant fact, the captain of the N. I. S. N. S. foot ball team, and of the N. I. S. N. S. base ball team is a Freshman. Now, you that would speak with disrespect of the Freshmen, you that would boast of your superiority, go and sin no more. But laying aside all mirth, the sin that doth so easily beset us, the year IQOO will long be remembered by us all. It has been a very pleasant year, we have worked hard and enjoyed the fruits of our toil. Coming together as strangers we part as friends. Life can never be quite the same to us again. It must be fuller, larger, better, because of the things we have learned, the influence we have met, the friends we have made. Though we will never all be in the same class again together the memory of our past experiences will be very pleasant, and with this thought, good joy to the Freshmen of IQOO. ETHEL M.

A tall, dark-eyed girl, smartly dressed from her natty walking-hat down to her very round toed shoes, entered the Northwestern depot at a few minutes before six o'clock and hurried to the train. The car was crowded and she paused a few steps from the door, look- ing anxiously about for a seat. A ,middle-aged man, short and somewhat stout, with moustache slightly gray, rose, lifted his hat, and proffered her the other half of his seat. She thanked him and sat down, while he went on reading his paper. Soon the conductor came through and as he stopped to punch her ticket, she asked, " Do we change cars for DeKalb Pl' There was a slight movement in the other half of the seat, the man with the gray moustache turned and looked at his companion. There was a tremor of the lips that made him say, " You are not accustomed to this road, perhaps ?" " No, I've never travelled in this part of the statef, " This is about the date for the opening of the new Normal there, Ibelieve," the stranger ventured. "' Oh ! yes l" and a relieved look came into her face, H do you know all about it P" " XVell, yes, I live in DeKalb." " I am so anxious to see Mr. Cook, I've heard so much about himf' " Have you, indeed F" " Some of the students from Normal say he is the loveliest man, but they say, they can't always have their own way, and the worst of it is, he always makes them acknowledge that his way is the best way." 5 56 THE NORTHEIG At this the stout man looked a trifle superior and a look of satisfaction crept into his face, but he only said, " VVell, I don't know about that." " I've heard a great many things about Mr. Cook. I'm very anxious to see what he looks like. I know I shall ,shake and tremble when I have to meet him to-morrow." " You needn't fear him in the least," said the stranger, and he smiled in a kind and fatherly way. " Have you secured a room and a boarding place ?" " Oh, yes, Mamma came down with me a few weeks ago, and that is all arranged. I'm to take the bus at the station." At this juncture, the brakeman called out "DeKalb," There was a general com- motion. A pulling down of parcels, and putting on of wraps. The girl with the dark eyes began to look a little troubled. The train stopped. The man with the gray moustache. took the dark girl's valise and found the bus for her. just as he was to hand her in, two men stepped up with, "VVell, Mr. Cook, we've been looking for you, we have the carriage here t t k t th h tl." O a eyou O e oe XVINIFRED JOHNSTON. MY FIRST DAY AT THE N. I. S. N. S. It was a bright Monday in October when I came to the N. I. S. N. S. I rode from the depot in a rattling omnibus. The way seemed very long and I had that peculiar sensa- tion which country people are liable to have when they enter an unfamiliar town. I was a little disappointed when I saw the Normal building standing out in a field with stones and bare ground around it. The jbzdzzffe which I had seen Sh0'ZUg'll, a mira lawn and a few trees around the building. VVhat attracted my attention most was the long narrow windows in the towers. I wondered, too, how that flag felt way up over the front tower. . fi 5- a . : r.. -- ' ' ' ' ' f ' A- .W ,, ng- . a Lian-, ... I ' ., ,.. TIJE NORTI-IER 57 VVhen I entered the long hall I was not very favorably impressed. The fioor was littered with 7ll0l'Z'!Zl' and lime. A step-ladder lay here and a morfzzz' box there. I went up- along straight stairway and soon found myself in the President's office. Here that Zillfllliflllflyilllf, after looking hard at me through his glasses, asked me some questions which I answered. I remained in the reception room until the end of the hour when I was asked to "come this way." I had to walk very fast to keep near my guide, for I was afraid of getting lost. We entered a class room and I was introduced to the teacher, Mr. -, who shook hands with me and said he was glad to know me, and he hasn't spoken to me since. But this was the wrong room. Iwas taken across the hall where I was told to remain. Here were some people that I knew so I tried to feel at ease, but I had a queer feeling that everybody was looking at me and wondering how much I knew. The next hour was a study hour and as I had no books, a young lady next to me gave me her reader and whispered as she did so, 'f This is our lesson for to-morrow-we have to learn it by heart. Perhaps you would like to study it." I took the book and read the first stanza of " The Village Preacherfl The next two' hours passed very fast. The first showed me the method of teaching geography in normal schoolsg and I wondered if that island in the sea would wear equally on all sides, or Why, being built on the solid rock there should be a wearing of the water below. I can say I didn't learn very much in that lesson, but I see a picture yet of that island in the sea. The next recitation was in arithmeticg I do not remember very much except that the in- structor did most of the reciting, and the subject was something I had never heard much about, namely, expressing numbers. Two and five-tenths could be expressed in more than one way. Many things can be expressed in more than one way and they may be understood in as many ways. I was very glad when the work was over for the day. I got my list of books and left the place with a feeling of relief.

" Wfell well, what a long time it seems since I ate my way out of a jelly house, like the one yonder, and darted hither and thither with my brothers and sisters in the sunny waters.

But worse was yet to come l " About three months of the tadpole stage had passed when three saucy girls called me Polliwoff. I wanted to jump at them and frighten them, but could not, as I had no legs and . b my long tail interfered. That tail was what caused the girls' merriment.

During the first few weeks the 1 KT organization of the school demanded the entire attention. But when order had .g been developed from chaos our president, solicitous for the greatest advantages wto his pupils, presented the idea of society organization. Under his plan the school was divided into two societies, each student being drawn into one of them. The plan as suggested by Dr. Cook was carried out and after the usual form our societies were organ- ' d T ize . he two societies readily agreed upon the names of our two generous benefactors, joseph F. Glidden and Isaac L. Ellwood. Our society chose the latter. The name implies in it the idea of success and only once has our mascot failed us. S year has been a year of beginnings with the N. I. S. N. S. Not the least of By the middle of October the society was in good working order under the able lead- ership of A. Roy Mize, our first president. VVe decided, that for a time at least we should meet only every two weeks, the other society occupying the intervening time. The society made its first bow to the public October 28, IQOO, in the Auditorium of the N. I. S. N. S. For the remainder of the fall and winter terms we assembled in Chronicle I-Iall, a more cen- tral meeting place in inclement weather. The int t t 1 ' ' eres acen in society work during the fall t . . erm was certainly very commendable, as was shown in the excellence of the programs rendered. ' ' The strength of our society manifested itself when after one term's work we consid- cl ere ourselves competent to undertake a genuine fight in the form of a contest Acc d' Ol , . or ing y, we challenged the Glidden Society to meet us.

For We did so much want a good contest and at the same time a good-hearted one. VVe thought for a time that we were somewhat lacking in society spirit but after our contest basket ball games we found that we were mistaken. We lost the boys' game, but this spurred our girls on to their very best efforts and We came off victors. Then came the last and supreme contest of all, and success was again recorded beside our names, and we felt that We had fought a good fight. May such success often attend the fortunes of our society. A VVith the spring term we again returned to the Auditorium with our programs. Mr. Eugene Phillips as president is holding up the high standard of our society and making the work a pleasure as well as a profit. Those of us who go out from our society, never more to return as active members are grateful that in this first year of the institution we were able to derive so much benefit from that source.

THE GLIDDEN SOCIETY iHE FIRST YEAR of organized work in the Glidden Society is drawing to a close. As we review what has been accomplished in this short time, feelings of W F pleasure and pride are predominant. It was but shortly after the opening of x . .:..-.R-...... Q school in September that the matter of society organization began to be agitated. M The outcome of this discussion was a meeting called one morning at general exercises at which time action was taken concerning the division of the student body into two societies. Permanent organization was speedily and skillfully accomplished and in a short time no one would have imagined that the societies were so young. Among some of the questions that arose during organization was that of choosing a name. By common consent it was decided to call the societies after two of the men who did so much toward making our Normal School a reality. Therefore you are not surprised to find them designated as the joseph F. Glidden and Isaac L. Ellwood Societies. Another thing that presented itself for solution was the question of how and where we should hold our meetings. Because of small numbers it was decided to join ranks for this year and alternate in giving the programs. After each society had given its dedicatory program in the school auditorium, the place of meeting was changed for the remainder of the winter to Chronicle Hall because of its central location in town. It was there that some very successful meetings were held. By helpful suggestions from the faculty who acted as critics, great strides were made toward having unity programs which would work out some particular line of thought and thus be of permanent value to the societies. Their enterprise and push are shown by the fact that they are at the present time negotiating for the purchase of a parl-or grand piano.

Taking our year's work as a whole it has been unusually enjoyable. One thing that has added much to this is the fact that during all of the intimate relations of the Ellwood and Glidden Societies there has been perfect harmony. Even at contest time, when excite- ment was high, the personal element of envy did not enter to mar the good feelings. As to the decision of the contest we do not feel blue, as it might be expected. How can we, when our contestants did so creditably? Though we crowned our sister society with the laurel this past year, it is no sign she will wear it next fall. United, earnest effort cannot but tell in good results, therefore we look forward with eagerness to the coming fall contest. ELIZABETH PATTEN. -i""r--Ye--w--W.-.r.,.,,.,,.

" H' ,, 66 THE NORTHER THE IONIAN SOCIETY ARLY in the Winter Term of IQOO the women of the faculty and school organized A a society which they decided to call Ionia. The purpose of the organization is to put social life into the lives of the Women students. Ionia is divided into sections. Each woman of the faculty has a section and Mrs. Page kindly con- sented to help in the Travel Club. The study of Paris has been carefullv planned by Mrs. Page, who knows from experience of the manners and customs of the people of that great city. This section gave a program at the union meeting of the different departments, which comes every tvvo Weeks, in which the Paris Exposition was discussed. The program was given in the museum, which was beautified in various Ways. Many of the odd features of the Fair were discussed. Our importance as a feature of the Fair was touched upon by the speaker. The Club meets with their chairman, at her home every two weeks. The Art Section, of which Miss Stratford is chairman, have been reading, " How to Enjoy Pictures,'l by Miss Emery. They have studied the pictures of Raphael, Millet, Turner and others. They have been in a body, to visit the Art Institute in Chicago and are very enthusiastic over their Work. Among other helps, Miss Stratford ffave a t lk S h T g ' a on c ool Room Decoration which was greatly appreciated by her students. Miss Potter has charge of the Magazine Section which meets with her every two Weeks. This Section gave a program which was enjoyed by all present. A good habit of carefully studying the magazines will be the result of this year's Work in the Magazine Section. D Miss VVilliamson has charge of a very interesting section of Ionia. This is the Black- board Illustrative Section. Her girls are progressing in the art of quickly portraying thoughts brought to the mind by stories.

The Greek drama has been studied by the Literature Section. The form and purpose of this drama as contrasted with the Shakesperean drama, together with the peculiarities of the Greek stage and manner of presentation has been discussed carefully. Some of the Greek dramas have been read. XVay's Translation was used. In the Spring Term the study of Brownings Poetry has been taken up. The Section under their able leader, Miss Hoaglin, have studied Browning's life, and incidentally the life of Mrs. Browning. Miss Patten has the Music Section of Ionia. A class in sight reading and the Girls' Glee Club have been faithfully trained. The Glee Club has become so well known that it is useless to try to tell of the pleasure it gives to the N. I. S. N. S. They are giving credit to their chairman. The Outlook, Review of Reviews and the daily papers have been studied by the Current Events Section. The principal topics for discussion have been, The 'XVar in South Africa, with something of the personality of Lord Roberts and of President Kruger: the home life of the Boers and the progress of affairs in the Philippines. During the Spring Term the Section has studied the debates made in Congress concerning the construction, mainten- ance and control of the Nicaragua Canal, the proposed construction of other important water ways and the race problem which is now confronting our government. A program was given by this and the Music Section which was very interesting. Miss Parmalee mav well be satisfied with the work done by her Section. lonia made her fir v gir s on the thirteenth of April. The museum was adorned with ru s ch ' airs, couches and pillows. Light refresh- ments were served and each chairman gave a brief outline of her Sections work. All enjoyed themselves and left wishing fair lonia many social triumphs of the same nature. In such a limited space it is impossible to give more than a brief outline of lonia's plans. The Sections meet every two weeks and a union meeting is held on the intervening Fridays.

T115 NORTPIEIC 69 INTER- SOCIETY CONTEST Xfjx .TJUR first inter-society contest has come and gone, leaving in its wake only kindly F6592 X feeling and an ambition for increased excellency in the future. The enthusiasm iifffi which during the past few weeks has manifested itself in suppressed excite- ! ment and numerous meetings, burst forth in a storm of applause as the contestants lisp-'cf took their places on the stage. The society yells and the waving of society colors formed a fitting prelude to the more serious work of the evening. Few vacant seats were left in the spacious hall, and the brilliancy of five hundred electric lights intensified the perfect harmony of the color effects. The room is too beautiful in itself to admit of elab- orate decoration, but the green, the color of the Ellwood Society, and the purple, the color of the Gliddens, formed a pleasing contrast with the cream color of the shapely pillars around which the ribbons were gracefully festooned, being combined -with the white and yellow of the school. The contestants were seated in the order in which they were to appear on the program, and the great event of the school year opened with a song by the Boys' Glee Club. This was the first appearance of the club, and the appropriate song was enthusiastically received. Next followed the debate, The subject over which the contestants were to measure argu- mentative swords was: H Resolved, That the United States should not permanently retain and govern the Philippines." Margaret A. Gallagher opened the debate, and bythe sincerity of her own convictions won the sympathy of the audience in a convincing argument earnestly delivered. In rebuttal, A. Roy Mize met the argument. The reserve power so manifest in his delivery was in perfect keeping with the masterly logic of his thought. David Madden, ,,... -rn my-3 -Mu. A...

Jennie C. Bertram, in closing thc negative, was earnest and convincing. Her satire was irresistible, and she talked straight to her hearers with tell- ing directness. As this was a submitted debate, we had the interest and intensity of an encounter at short range from hrst to last. ' Musical numbers on a contest are always of special interest, and this year presented no exception. Miss Carpenter is the possessor of a remarkably good natural voice of wide range and dramatic power, with further training and study, her singing will be not only a splendid promise but a glorious reality. Mr. Lloyd has a smooth, pleasing voice, which study will strengthen and improve. Although he was suffering from a severe cold at the time of the contest his performance was a creditable one. i The essays were alike in that they both had to do with sociological problems, but the treatment of the subjects was so different as to furnish pleasing variety. Blanche M. Cap- ron traced the work of the XN7oman's Club from its inception to its present important position as agreat federationg and Minnie M. Bush told us what college women are doing in the settlement work, treating the Hull House settlement as her concrete illustration. From the choice of contestants in declarnation, both societies felt that the contest would be close. The selections given were excerpts from the stories of a writer who has sounded the deep pathos of human life-lived under hard conditions. They were strong, of thrilling interest and intensely dramatic. The first had in addition the element of surprise. Ivy Stuart YVright, by her sympathetic voice and good work in personation, aroused the pity of the audience for the "poor fellows" the world over upon whom the curse of an unfortunate heredity has come.

The appearance of both of these young ladies was at once dignified and graceful, and the effort of each was highly artistic. In the contest in instrumental music many of the audience felt that the numbers were equally well rendered. Charlotte Paulsen executed her runs with remarkable precision and clearness, but there was more than technique-hthe soul of the music. Grace Hobbs' selection was more difficult and was quite as proficient in technique and expression. Frank L. Bennett, the orator representing the Gliddens, had chosen a historical sub- ject, "Sherman's March to the Sea." He treated in a concise and forceful way that incident in our civil war which must ever stand unsurpassed in the history of military tactics. Mr. Bennetts manner was direct and earnest, and the ease with which he delivered the oration was very pleasing to the audience. Olive A. Spence was very happy in the selection of her theme. She chose a live subject, and in its treatment fulfilled the law of unity. There were no side issues, but the whole trend of her thought was along one well-defined line. - The orchestra of twenty pieces, led by Mr. L. Cook, rendered a selection well worthy of the vigorous applause it received. The judges on the literary numbers were Mr. Alfred Bayliss, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Springfield: Lawyer D. Carnes, of Sycamore, and Mr. N. D. Gilbert, principal of the DeKalb city schools. Mrs. XVaterman, of Sycamore, Mr. George Lewis, also of Sycamore and Mr. C. E. Bradt, of DeKalb, were the judges of the music. Dr. Cook had presided at the opening of the contest, and he now came forward at the close to announce the decision of the judges, as follows: Debate, negative, Ellwood Society, 2 points: vocal solo, Miss Carpenter, Glidden Society, I point, essay, Miss Bush, Glidden Society, I pointg declamation, Miss Farr, Glidden Society, I point, instrumental solo, Miss Hobbs, Ellwood Society, I pointg oration, Miss Spence, Ellwood Society, I point, giving the contest to the Ellwood Society with a score of 4 to 3.

Q T the beginning of the first year of our Northern Illinois State Normal School an p ? effort was made to organize a Young Men's Christian Association, but, for some reason or other, the time was not yet ripe for such an enterprise. There were ,Qi 6? only a few young men in the school who seemed willing to take a hand in the ' undertaking, but this number did not suffice to arouse sufficient interest to start the association. After the school had been in progress for four or five months, another trial was made, and this time, by the help of the state secretary of the Y. M. C. enough spirit was manifested by the young men to set the ball rolling. An organization was formed, its membership being about ten men. And so We had made a beginning at last. Lewis Ragland was chosen president and has conducted his Work in an admirable Way. Roy Poust and Edgar Hipple constituted the membership committee, and their zeal in this department has greatly increased the number of members. This work is very important. lt is not the pur- pose of this Y. M. C. A. to have only those who care about religion come together and study God's word, but to get those who are indifferent to join us and to be influenced for good. The care of the religious meetings was in charge of E. Ackert and Marvin Zellar, and they deserve praise for their untiring efforts. The Bible study department was in charge of Eugene Phillips and R. G. DeYoung. The object of this committee was to lay out a course of Bible study for the members which would help them to read their Bibles with better understanding. ' F. D. Love and XVm. R. Lloyd constituted the missionary committee, whose aim was to try to promote the work of missions and to arouse an interest in it.

At a meeting of the Cabinet it was agreed to try and hold monthly missionary meet- ings, and also to have a library for missionary study. The plans for getting the books for this library are: first, to have a friend donate a bookg second, each member give a book, and third, give money to buy books. During the winter term two union meetings of the Y. XV. C. A. and Y. M. C. A. were held in the Congregational Church. There was a large attendance at each meeting and very profitable meetings resulted. At the beginning of the Spring term a social was held in the auditorium of the N. I. S. N. S. for the purpose of welcoming the new students. It is very essential that such an association should be formed in Normal schools. No institution is complete Without having some organization of a religious nature within its Walls. A religious organization is a means of creating a better moral spirit among the "fellows"g it brings them closer together and increases their sympathy with one another. Then, too, when these young men enter active life as school teachers, their aim will be to mold the moral characters of the children, and this is only possible when the instructor has a true religious spirit.

N institution like the Northern Illinois State Normal School would be incom- plete without such an organization as the Young XVoman's Christian Association. gThis is what a number of the school thought when, on Dec. 12, ISQQ, they met leg. L? in the Presidents reception room for the purpose of considering permanent ja organization. At this meeting a committee consisting of Misses Hamm, XVarring- ton and Mitchell were appointed to see about a constitution. It was not until January 3, IQOO, that the girls of the school met in room 36 to organize the association. The committee on the constitution having accepted the constitution used by colleges and seminaries, it was adopted by the association with but few exceptions. Miss Louise F. Shields, the travelling secretary for the state work, was present and gave us some very helpful suggestions. On Monday, January S, IQOO, a business meeting was held and the officers for the winter term were elected. These officers were: President, Elizabeth Mitchellg vice-president, Isabel O. XVarringtong recording secretary, Ethel M. Phillipsg corresponding secretary, Minnie A. Hauseng treasurer, Estella jordan. On january Ioth Miss Shields was with us again and conferred with the chairmen of the various committees in regard to their duties. Since the organization of our association we have held regular weekly meetings. These meetings have been well attended and great interest manifested. No doubt'the meet- ings have been a great blessing and spiritual uplift to all who attend. Among the many other organizations of the school no other exists whose influence and helpfulness surpasses that of the Y. XV. C.

Important questions have been brought up and discussed freely by those in attendance. From these discussions we have undoubtedly received a great beneht, for the thoughts and helps there received go with us through the week and help us to live purer and more conscientious lives as a result. XVe rejoice that out of one hundred and fifty girls in the school one-half the number belong to the association, but it would greatly increase our joy if the other half would also join with us. During the year we have held two union meetings with the Y. M. C. A. XVe observed the universal day of prayer for students by holding a union meeting Feb. Ilth in the Con- gregational Church. This meeting was largely attended by students and friends of the various churches. Two of the town pastors and others were present and gave us some very interest- ing and helpful talks. The first Friday of the spring term the two associations united and gave a social to the students of the school. This was the first social given by the associations and was an entire success. Among those to whom this is due were Miss Potter, who gave a heart to heart talk on the influence of the Y. VV. C. A., Dr. McMurray who represented the Y. M. C. A. by telling of the influence of the Y. M. C. A. at Normal and the need of such an organiza- tion in the institution, and Dr. Cook who talked on the influence of the associations in the school. As we look back over the first term's work we rejoice that we have been able to accomplish what we have, but we regret that we could not have done more. XVe hope that the year IQOO-OI will see greater work accomplished, and be a year of great success and spiritual uplift to the association. VVe pledged ourselves to keep a Morning Vtfatch, reading together the thirteenth chapter of first Corinthians each morning in our rooms.

VVhere the love of God is pictured In a vision wondrous bright As of charity, the holy, In her mission benedight. O, for love that never faileth, That rejoiceth in the truth, That believeth and endureth Through the Hitting cares of youth! For a faith to scan the morning, For a hope in noonday's glare, For the charity at even Like the first star shining there!

THE NORTFIER 87 THE "NORTHERN ILLINOIS" OXY FAMILIAR now is the title of our school paper, the "Northern Illinois " ' '1 . . if ,Lf 1 The majority of us have accepted it all as a matter of fact, and do not realize l that even the name was at one time the subject of the most ardent and prolonged f. r . discussion. Yet it is true that when the Board of Managers, the editor and , . . . I assistant editor, met with the chairman of the board, on Friday, October 2oth, 1899, the question of choosing a name for the new school paper occupied fully an hour of the evening-the name suggested by our president being finally decided upon. But this was not the first step taken. At the General Exercises of the same day the faculty had chosen from their number Fred L. Charles as chairman of the Board of Managers of the school paper. The Senior Section had chosen Minnie A. I-Iausen as their representativeg junior B, Adda M. XVhiteg Junior A I, Elizabeth Cody, Junior A II, L. XV. Raglandg Freshman A, Bessie Stoneg Freshman B, Edward Ackert. The board had at a subsequent meeting appointed Alice Crosby, editor, XV. L. Lloyd, assistant editor, Adda M. VVhite, secretaryg L. VV. Ragland, business manager. Wfith this corps of workers the paper was to begin and it seemed like a herculean task when the energetic chairman intimated thatpthe first number should be issued the following Thursday: for the Northern Illinois Teachers' Association was to convene at the building on that day, and all agreed that it would be the most opportune time to bring Number I of Volume I of the Northern Illinois before the notice of not only the students of the N. I. S. N. S., but the visitors as well. The first issue was to be but a fourteen-page edition, and as it was the initial number it was agreed that its contents should be of a somewhat general nature. On Saturday 33 THE' .v 0 I6 In If fe morning the work began in earnest. The design for the cover was kindly taken in charge by the Art Instructor, and other ingenious ones of the faculty planned and executed minor headings. Articles on the various topics were furnished by the board. There was another matter to receive attention, one which was of the deepest concern to the existence of the Northern Illinois. This was the financial condition. On Friday evening the paper was planned without any assurance that it could exist, on Saturday even- ing, through the effort of the chairman of the board, assisted by the business manager, the entire scheme had become possible. Not only could the N. I. N. S. have a paper, but because of the hearty response of the advertisers that paper could be ofvthe best material. Cuts were hurriedly ordered, barbs were contributed, and even poetry lent its charm to the pages, so that the members of that body who had met for the first time on Friday evening, were ready to offer the first edition to the school on the following Thursday mcrn- ing. The students, with three exceptions, were unanimous in their subscription. Can any school make a similar showing? The visitors at the N. I. T. A. received the paper heartily, many carrying away the souvenir copy, while many others entered their names as regular subscribers. Later on came the choosing of the editorial staff. The management was most happy in its choice of correspondents. Minnie M. Bush took charge of the Practice School page: Lewis E.'Flentje, Athleticsg Olive A. Spence, Organizations, Jessamine Crapser, Musical, Zuella A. Love, Exchanges, Edward M. Cornell, Oaks and Barbs-oaks and barbs in the N. I. S. N. S. vernacular meaning personals and jokes. Throughout the year the policy of the paper has been to present that to its readers which would be worth the reading, something of real value. It has given in its lengthier articles the history of those men who have so generously equipped the Normal: an account of the dedicatory exercises as well as of the first public gathering of teachers held within its I -MBALXMNX-NQAIFHI-H-X-MIXK-X-KHHXNYNW-N'N'HVNUMNNHMMXSWXXXQBBN- NORTH ERN ILLINOIS STAFF L.

Its editorial has been for the most part upon topics petinent to the school, yet under its editorial correspondents there has been published very creditable articles on the topics of the day. Students of special gifts have contributed drawings and poemsg stories have not been uncommon, and much laughter has been evoked by the well written barbs. At all times the attempt has been to publish that only which is of literary merit, and in mechanical construction to produce that of which the student might be proud. In engendering and maintaining a spirit of unity and good feelingnin the school the paper has taken the lead. It has urged those things which tend to bind the school together. In its columns have appeared our school songs, our school yell, a cut of the school button: ' th t' f in e ime o contests the necessity and beauty of unity under the Yellow and the XVhite were so presented that whatever the lt th b and the Green. XVhile to some who have especially "stood by," the paper has meant much work and effort, yet the task has not been without its redeeming pleasures The many obstacles over- come by those young people who were especially pledged to see, the enterprise to the finish onl served t h ' ' ' y o cement t e bonds of friendship and good feeling. Through the courtesy of their chairman these persons met occasionally in a capacity other than th t f b ' a o usiness. The members will never forget the jollv suppers at the restaurant in the winter and " under h t e oaks " on the beautiful moonlight evenings of the springtime. Then jokes and fun went round and the toasts were of the most entertaining character. During the year the majority of the students have contributed to some department. Some of the strongest articles have been from the student body. Many, because of the acceptance of their Work, have gained confidence in their ability to write a good, readable article.

Thffj NORTfflfR QI THE GLEE CLUBS ,XX Lo KHAT THE Northern Illinois State Normal School in the first year of its history V s should organize and successfully maintain a band, an orchestra, a boys' glee WT D club, a girls' glee club, beside several quartette and trio combinations, is proof . . positive that the school has unusual musical interest and ability. It is my for- y ,-N, ,f w tunate lot to relate the rise and growth of the vocal organizations, and to them I turn my attention. Since the N. I. S. N. S. can only boast of twenty-seven boys, it is a fact easily understood that these boys have been of far more importance and interest than twenty-seven boys ordinarily are in a school. Their twenty-seven virtues and faults, talents and shortcomings, were soon discovered and anxiously watched. XVhen they lifted their voices in the morning hymns or the noonday glees, e. g., Forsaken, we noted with delight that the voices were tuneful and of goodly range. After the school was well under way, the longing to form a glee club found expression, and from that time semi-weekly rehearsals have been held. The organization thus effected has flourished because the boys have been uniformly regular in attendance and have entered upon the work with great enthusiasm. Their singing has enhanced the attractiveness of manv of the society programs, has rendered many a moonlight evening more delightful, and in fact has struggled nobly and successfully with the problem of making twenty-seven boys as interesting and charming as fifty-four or even eighty-one. The boys have given us good music and will give us more before the year is over. Invitations have come to them to furnish commencement music in some of the neighboring high schools. Thus virtue rezips its own reward in the appreciation of the public. In organizing a girls' glee club a somewhat wider choice of members was offered, and BOVS J.EDWARDACKERT.. IUCHARD DEYOUNG..

While girls are apt to suffer more than boys from colds, overwork, loss of memory regarding rehearsals and kin- dred ailments, they accomplish perhaps more in a given time, and show a quick musical sympathy that is very satisfactory. These organizations are to be permanent and will undoubtedly be one of the attractive elements in the school. It is not the plan to have the clubs increase much in number, but to make a choice of the bm! eight or twelve voices and give to the public some music that is really meritorious. ALICE C.

THE XVORTFIER Q5 FOOT BALL 6HEN school opened in September with only twenty-five men and boys enrolled the most far-seeing prophet might have looked in vain for an indication point- ing to the success we have reached in the line of athletics. The foot-ball season was half gone when the idea occurred to that ingenious man, Mr. Keith that the N. I. S. N. S. might get up and support a team. So, in accordance , a meeting was called and all the boys of the school were urged to be present. At the meeting quite a large percentage agreed to go out every afternoon for the purpose of exercising and incidentally learn a few things about foot-ball. Mr. Kieth kindly offered his services as coach, and promised the boys that if they would come out he would see to it that they got plenty of exercise. It was not long until all the boys who wanted exercise found out the place where a great deal of it might be gotten in a very short time. Conse- quently, there were nearly enough boys out every afternoon for a full team. By the Ioth of November our captain Qliaysj and our coach thought we were in shape for a game with the De Kalb High School team, which was one of the strongest High School teams in Northern Illinois. The game was a lively one and the score at the end of the game was I6 to IO, in favor of the N. I. S. N. S. Our manager then decided that he would arrange a game with Rochelle High School team, so he called up the manager of Rochelle foot-ball team, not knowing there was any team in Rochelle except the High School team. As the result a game was arranged with the Rochelle Athletic Association team. The N. I. S. N. S. players began this game feeling that they were out-classed and that they would be used to brush off their own gridiron by the Rochelle team.

The 7 ? iz stalwart sons of the institution have been so few in number falthough so bold in spiritl, that there was scarcely hi sufiicient timber to complete a second nine for practice gamesg but by persistent, faithful work nine or a dozen have learned to play pretty fair ball, and it may be claimed without fear of successful contradiction that there is no man on the team who has not, at some time during the season, caught at least one fly ball. However some interesting games have been fought and won, and our patrons have been treated, on occasion, to an exhibition of good playing, together with plenty of excitement. Through the courtesy of the "Reds," "Blues," "Yellows," and " XVhites," the proceeds of the Basket-Ball games were turned over to the Base-Ball fund for the purchase of gloves, masks, protector, bats, and balls. With this equipment, and palpitating hearts, nine men strode out upon the diamond for their first game, to do battle with the famed and seasoned warriors of the High School. So surprised were our boys, to find themselves in the lead throughout most of the game, that they could scarcely complete the game, and eventually lost by the worthy score of 23 to IQ Sycamore High School then desired to try conclusions with such an "easy team." but they went back over the hills to Sycamore a sadder and wiser nine. Then a cry arose for greater glory and more formidable antagonists Yielding to this cry, the manager invited the Steinmanites, of Dixon, to visit us. The gentlemen from that suburb descended upon us, and departed with our scalps. Their faces were bronzed and tanned with deep study, and they played as if they thoroughly enjoyed the short respite from their books. However, they played most gentlemanly ball, and they may hear from us again. DeKalb High School kindly consented to show us a little about ball playing in a practice game, soon after. But their smile faded as the fpracticel game proceeded, and finally vanished completely. The next contest was with the Shoe Factory CM. D Wfells 8 Col Our new uniforms arrived just before the game, and added much to the pleasure of the occasion. Pleasure? Yes! N. I. S. N. S. 24, Shoe Factory 11. Little more need be said, for the noise attendant upon the dedication of the new uniforms is still reverberating in space and making havoc with the music of the spheres. Excitement ran so high that it was necessary to have a RECEPTION, at which some should relieve their minds by public speaking, while all cooled off under the soothing influence of ice cream. This occasion will be remembered as one of the jolliest and most informal social events of the year. The remainder of the story is quickly told. The High School walked away with another victory, to revenge which the Shoe Factory had to be beaten again. This last game was the best of the series. Both teams did excellent work, and the score card read I2 to 8. We are much pleased with the work of our first ball team Three victories and three defeats, against strong teams, is not a bad record for a new and undeveloped nine A full equipment has been purchased, and neat uniforms provided, so that another season will find us in splendid condition at the outset. The team has been managed by Fred. L. Charles, who has also played the position of short-stopg while Victor Kays has been the enthusiastic and capable Captain. THE NORTHER IO3 BFXSKET BALL ' HEN the foot-ball season had closed the boys of the N. I. S. N. S. directed their attention to playing basket-ball for exercise and succeeded quite as well as in foot- ball although there were no games played with other schools. The boys ofthe Ell- wood and Glidden Societies played one match game the result of which the Ellwood team was beaten by a score of 21 to 11. As the society teams seemed to be unevenly matched the best players were divided into two teams, Mr. Keith playing with one team and Mr. Charles with the other. The former's team was known as the Blues and the latter's as the Reds. These teams played two match games, which were open to the public. The result of the first was that the Blues were beaten by ascore of I7 to 14. The second game resulted in a score of II to 7 in favor of the Blues. As the result of these games a large number of boys got some good exercise and the athletic fund was swelled to such an extent as to warrant the association buying suits for the base-ball team. ' THE GIRLS BASKET BKLL FOR THE YEAR A HE school year ISQQ-IQOO in the Northern Illinois State Normal School marks an epoch for the girls' basket-ball. The marked success which the girls' have attained along this line has been far in excess of any prediction that could have been made.

Great enthusiasm was shown in the practice games, and when early in February the Gliddens received a challenge for a contest game of basket-ball to be played March 8, excitement knew no bounds. Practice games grew even more frequent, the Gliddens under the direction of Mr. Keith, the Ellwoods under the direction of Mr. Charles. ' On the day of the game, and the day previous Ellwood and Glidden colors were very much in evidence, and society spirit waxed warm. On the afternoon of that eventful day a large audience assembled in the balcony, and on the stairs of the gymnasium to witness the first contest game between the girls of the two societies. Banners of purple and green served as decoration, and the Ellwoods were further represented by a little dog labelled "Ellwood," which contributed no small amount to the noise and enthusiasm of the game. VVhen the players came down the stairs and took their positions excitement reached a high pitch. During the first half everything was in favor of the Ellwoods, They made two goals from the field, one thrown by Miss Phalen and one by Miss Spence. During the second half the Gliddens came into favor, Miss McGay throwing one free goal, followed by two goals from the field, one thrown by Miss Phillips and one by Miss McGay. At this point when the reputation of the Ellwoods as good players was at stake, Miss Plialen threw a goal making the score 6 to 5 in favor of the Ellwoods.

The weather was favorable, and throughout the tournament much interest was shown. Fancy pins were awarded as prizes, one of which was won by Miss Lascelles, While the other was Won by Mr. Shipman.

Ah! yes, pork, until we will be ashamed to see an innocent little pig. Although no very great variety in fare at the club, we got the " spice of lifel' in the people. There are all sorts and kinds of people: Miss Pepperbox, who declares she "has to pass everything all the time." By her side is Miss Saltbox, who considers that every one but herself needs salting down. Mr. Fork is one whose sharp points catch everything that comes his way, and his brother, Mr. Knife, cuts every one with whom he does not agree. But the one we all admire is Miss Tablecloth, for she is always agreeable. Besides these usual club characters there are some very unusual ones: for instance, the bashful young man who occupies the head of the table. Be-kays he is the only man there he thinks he is a privileged character and so monopolizes the Whole conversation during our meal by a lengthy discourse upon the advisability of buy- ing paper roses at fifteen dollars a dozen. Another character is the Roy-al one, who, when vw-. ,...J.,r:v4r:1-nf....--.-..Y,....,.....,..............-....-,,... ...,,,,.,, , - l ,,m..x,V,. x x..,..x..w.L.uug,,pu,X..,. , P - N '1'I'I E S'L'0NE CLUB """"""' X . -vvwvv-m vx ww-wvwvwwmwxw y """ VI W ,1 M ,, w 1 ,K ,,, uf' .! , ' w '1 w ,lx , wi :N 1 1 I I 1 . 1 L l H M1 i , , x W ,w M M, 1 N l 'i 1 x, ,I X 'N X ,X w W ,!'

THE CO-OPERATIVIE CLUB II4 THE NOR THEN you visit his club and sit across from him, asks you questions according to the " five formal stepsf' He has hisistock arranged alphabetically and hurls them at you in order. The clubs we know about all have special names. There is the hurt club, though why it was called that is more than I can see, for no one was ever known to be hurt there unless it was some of the girls who were charmed by a pair of fascinating eyes belonging to a low-man who roomed above. He roomed above, but as long as there were any girls around he was below. Then there is the stone club. There are different opinions as to this name. Some think it applicable to the boarders there and others think it gives a good estimate of the fare. Statistics are not in as yet, so it cannot be settled positively. A little farther down the street is the cooperative club, but some troublesome personage has changed this name to the Cornhill club-perhaps from the steward, and perhaps because of the fre- quency of corn upon the table. In this life the biological theory of the adaptation of structure and function to the environment has been proven, for clubbers are known by their abnormally long arms and strong lungs. They either have to reach for any edibles they get or to call for them. This calling is excellent lung practice, for the tables are long. No one between you and the thing you wish thinks of listening to you unless personally addressed. They are too busy, for the amount they get depends upon their own speed in eating. All during this year we have frequently had long and eloquent talks from our presi- dent upon "standing by 'l whatever we took up. Surely standing by the clubs for a whole year shows great standing ability. VVe have also been told that everything we get at Normal is of some use to us. At first we could not see the use of this club training, but since we are gaining experience in the practice school we see that our long arms and strong lungs will be of much benefit to us in our vocation. Our club life is probably preparing us for the future years when all the cooks will have deserted the kitchen and we will be going to one munici- pal feed lot for our meals. . .-.. . . .,. .-.. . ,. ,.,. ,,.. ,, .,.,,.,,- -. , , 4 M., , -. - -. : f --Q--4-Q 4- , -.. . .

' sight for our teacher to behold. Our room had been termed the " museum," and we probably were 'trare specimens." But at last, thanks to the work of our teachers, we were started on our upward way " After remaining in our museuml' for about a month we were established in room 41 on the third Hoor By this time we had gotten used to the new ways of studying especially of grammar and were doing as well as could be expected of raw recruits At the time of this XVI'1t1IT1g there are aboat seventy nine pupils enrolled There are twenty four student teachers who teach classes each term in the grammar department The supervision of these classes is looked after by Dr McMurry and Miss Donohue O yes ofcourse we have home studying to do althou h most of us do not burn midnight oil over it Our recitation rooms are all on the third floor This makes it very convenient for both teachers and pupils The dread of the pupils is that awful lecture room The classes are required to recite their lessons there for the benefit of themselves as well as the students and teachers It gives the pupils the confidence which they must have in themselves to recite before an audience WS- ' ' A 4 y K K , . 7 W O' . by , l 4 ' H , e .

His brow was sad, with tears beneath. He dreamed of Halleck days with Keith, E'er yet the burdened clarion rung The accents of that dismal tongue " Four pages more l " In classroom books he saw in state The happy marks of nine and eight. Alone for him the sixes shone And from his lips escaped a groan: " F-o-u-r p-a-g-e-s rn-o-r-e." Try not to pass," the Freshman said, Psychology will break your head, Intension's deep, extension's wide," But each day still the doctor cried: "Four pages more!" A O stay," the gridiron plead, "and rest Your lengthened locks upon this breast.' fModern Excelsioizj 1 A 11 He passed the luring oval by, His whisper ended in a sigh: "Four pages more." Beware the apperception branch, Don't fail in feeling's avalanche!" The far alumnus called, "all right! I rnet and charged that gruesome sight: Four pages more." On testing day as questions came And hearts beat high with hope or shame He saw the answers plainly there Above the legend of despair: "Four pages more." The senior lad, for two hours bound In twenty-nine, at length was found Still toiling with that hand of ice, Redintegrating that device: "Four pages more." Then fell the accents grave and kind, Your work is perfect, sir, I find It's nine-now, Rosenkranz you need And for to-morrow you may read Four pages more." M. A H.
