Its second brood will soon M rn leave the nest and try their wings in independent flight. The trying days of the Hrst term in the l fall of 1899 when we shut ourselves in a few rooms and tried to forget the noises of the workmen are with the years beyond the Hood. And yet, our first day when we gathered in the study hall, talked together for a little t11ne, enrolled, decided upon the lessons ror the next day and separated to prepare for the first recitation -it all seems but yesterday. Dear, dear! And to what strange country do the hurrying months betake themselves? And the anxious days when we wondered where our people were to live, when we had room for two more but not for three- they are gone, too, thank heaven! And while we are thanks- giving let us not forget the "Ellwood Syndicate " that built for us the roomy and comfortable club houses. And do you not remember how soon we settled down to business and were an old-fashioned, genuine school, and all within a week? And the crimson days with their resplendent gorgeousness- when did another institu- tion have such a send-off? And dedication day, with the proverbial DeKalb weather, when our well-laid plans went all wrong, and the grove and the thousands of comfortable seats were left to the rain while we crowded into the " gym." and stood up for two mortal hours and never complained? Good speeches they were, too - Governor Tanner and President Draper and Superintendent Bright and Senator Berry, Doctor Andrews. Colonel Ellwood and the rest. And the wonderful evening function with the lovely ladies in their exquisite gowns and the beauti- ful queen of the carnival with her charming maids? Well, it was a great day and the weather man could not spoil it, let him try ever so hard. , The first year slipped away so pleasantly and so quickly that the two ends of ittseem to be quite pushed together. Commencement came on as a sort of surprise and our " sweet sixteen " with their brand new sheep- skins which never were before, were out in the world ready to immortalize their alma mater. W'ith the summer school on hand small space we had for resting. Nearly one hundred and sixty were with us for the greater part of the live weeks, and at last when the wind-up came, near the close of july, we drew the Hrst long breath and hurried away to the woods to get that blessed renewal for the new year which is so necessary to the weary school- master and schoolma'am. . With the reopening of the school, in September, as many appeared as had been enrolled in the whole course of the first year. And such good pupils, too- So per cent. of them high school graduates. Aurora and Elgin turned out in force and several other cities followed suit, while the smaller towns were by no means unrepresented. The year has gone off charmingly. We have learned that northern Illinois stands by. It really begins to look I7 as if we should need to have only one entering class a year. This is a delightful prospect. The winter has been long and severe, but good health has been the rule. This out-door life seems indeed to be quite the thing for many of the girls, for they have steadily increased in health as the season has advanced. Commencement day will soon be here again and almost fifty will receive their official endorsement at the hands of President Goodrich. This is quite phenomenal for an Illinois Normal school. The school at Normal, which opened its doors in 1857, never touched the forty mark until 1896, and then as if it had quite exhausted itself it fell below it the succeed- ing year. The largest class that our friends at Carbondale have so far sent out falls a little short of the thirty mark, so that we feel that we have done pretty fairly, by comparison, at any rate. All success in the world is relative and if we do as well as our neighbors- especially when they are such good neighbors-we ought to feel some little sense of satisfaction. But what of the future? That is always the insistent question. It is the land of hope and promise. Respect- ing it we can only say that the auguries are favorable. The summer school will open on the 24th of June and the indications now are that we shall have a respectable attendance -respectable in quality, of course, but also in numbers. It is getting noised about northern Illinois at last that there is a Normal school at DeKalb and that we have abundant room in our building for ive hundred students, and admirable accommodations in our club houses and private families for nearly the same number, and that the faculty, after its two years of experience, has come to know itself pretty thoroughly, and that we are ready for whatever the future may have in store for us. At this writing the general assembly has show11 itself to be satisfactorily gracious. The strong box will be quite well supplied with the sinews of war. We shall have the needed teacher of literature, and the director of physical training and the long desired music teacher, and a thing or two more that need not inow be mentioned. We trust that we have shown ourselves worthy of patronage and that the young people from northern Illinois who want to be teachers and who are well equipped with academic disciplines will come to us for the professional training which we believe will be of great help to them in their gracious ministry of caring for the young. Thus far we have been sailing on comparatively unruflied seas. There have been no annoying conflicts of any character. The people of the town have accepted us at our own estimate, and that ought to be high enough, surely. And so with high hopes and buoyant spirits, and abundant enthusiasm we are looking out toward the new years that are hurrying this way. May we be worthy of our great calling. 18 ,- 17- t x N w?"w"5, 1 'QA ,., 111: ,r F . ,-. x. v W' gf f.. .v lf, ,I ',.w.,cm ' V Nl' ' M K if CAM PU5 VIEXVS Glass of 1901 Color Sky Blue IIDOIIO Non Nobis Solurn IQCII Who are better?

Its mighty blasts reverberate throughout the length and breadth of Illinois. In the lirst place we are noted for remarkable brilliancy as a class. From 1 Em that great first day, the day of the opening of the N. I. S. N. S., we have shown an unusual tendency to make eights and nines in the class record books. Of course it has made life monoto- nous for the faculty, but there has been such a perfect understanding existing between teacher and student that we have overlooked the times when the nines were inverted merely for variety's sake. Note us! Gaze upon us! We, the class of Nineteen-one, are the lirst to complete the course as planned by the N. I. S. N. S. This fact is in truth a thing to be justly proud of. In after years when we return to visit our alma mater we will proudly say, " I graduated with the first class of the great school." O! those Hrst weeks of our Junior year were days of discovery and peculiar sensations. Everything was so new, so new. The building was new and in many respects not completed. There were new faces and new names to learn, there were new 'ways of doing Arithmetic, new things to learn about gullysg new ideas to be ingrained in the Psychology class and worse than all, new things to eat at the club houses. But we were daunted by none of these things. We screwed our courage to the sticking point and stuck, and we are glad we did, for We have become not only the pride and joy of the school, but a blessing unto ourselves and to the community at large. We didn't lizzle out at the end of the year, either. Ask some of the class of IQOO about our junior night program given during commencement week. If we were brilliant as Juniors we have been no less brilliant as Seniors. James and Rosenkranz are no longer lions in our path and, moreover, we are experienced teachers. Early in the fall of this last school year we came to take charge of the various rooms in the DeKalb schools. Those first few weeks, without suiiicient help, were, indeed days of experience for us in the arts of teachingg but as the weeks went by the work grew 23 easier and many of us found the useful, noble and bright side of the teacher's life. We will look back upon those days as red-letter days in our lives. In athletics, literary contests and other social affairs of the school we have taken prominent parts. In basket ball, football and baseball we have been well represented. Five of the presidents of the literary societies and two of the Christian associations have been Seniors. We all know what our Seniors did in the contest this year. Two members of our class have even been teaching in the Normal department. If you would know more about us, you will find our pictures and a short statement of our merits in the following pages. These two years have been happy as welleas instructive. We have made friends whoin we will never forget. We have come in contact with good influences which will have lasting effects on our lives. Our ideas of life have broadened and brightened under the leadership of our honored president and faculty. Though it is hard to disband, as a class, let us keep with us these high and noble ideas of life which we hold so dear, and let us indeed be veritable " persons of influencef' OLIVE A.

We have listened with a patience worthy , of such a class as we are, to the advice and admonition of our friends, the reverend N' i q? Seniors. We have even smiled indulgently at some extraordinary burst of egotism. I A ' We l1ave tried in this as in everything else to merit the good name we hold in the N. I. ' N. S. In order to prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the reputation of which I 0 speak is not a fleeting fancy born in the fertile mind of a Junior, I, the humble historian I. A of this class of 1902, shall try to recount to you a few-merely a few,-of the deeds of this illustrious class. We began our career by being a very large Freshman class, remarkably free from the verdancy characteristic of most Freshman classesf In Arithmetic we added, subtracted, recited the aliquot parts of a hundred and papered and carpeted imaginary rooms till even Mr. Parson was forced to reward our faithfulness by a -but never mind the grade, it might make the Seniors jealous or discourage the Freshmen. Under Miss Hoaglin we learned to recite Poe's " Bells" till you could fairly hear the " tintinnabulation " that so musically swells from the jingling and the tinkling of the bells. And from that happy life we passed into our present happier state. In our junior year perhaps the two studies in which we won the greatest laurels were the two 'ologies. In Biology our plates were " things of beauty " and our notes contained statements which for the originality of their scientific thought were truly gems. About Psychology I shall say nothing. I shall only hope that some day it may be possible for you to gain access to Mrg Keith's grade book and in that day all will be made plain. But it must not be thought that all of our time was spent in plucking the fruits of the tree of knowledge. A glance at the names of the members of the basket ball team will soon convince you that such is not the case. What would the team do without Kays, I-Iipple, Givens and Mofet? Who will forget the game of a few weeks ago? Surely not the Seniors, nor yet the Faculty! In any field of action where experts were wanted the demand was met by a ready response from the Juniors. Football players were needed. Eight of the Juniors answered to the call. From what class did the team choose its captain? From the Juniors, of course! An editor for the 37 Northern Illinois was wanted. Did a Senior ill this place? 0h no! only a Junior could occupy such a position. Of course the editor must have an editorial staff. Five out of the eight members are Juniors. Assistants were needed by the Faculty. Did they call upon the Seniors? I hardly need say they did not. Who carried the high- est grade in the Senior Geometry class last term? There was a Junior who wanted that grade and consequently she obtained it. Another thing, among the twelve contestants seven were juniors. But, Seniors, the time has come when we must say " farewellf' How varied are the thoughts which the word brings! With you it marks the beginning of the day when you can put into more practical use the knowl- edge gleaned through these years of study. To us it means the occupying of the place which for several months we have felt quite competent to lill. Thus it is with mingled joy and sorrow that we bid you farewell. Our best wish for you is that in your life work you may achieve the same degree of success that you have in your prepara- t1OTl. BERTHA D. GOODYEAR. ,rf .

Puff ! . L9 groups of studentsg but if we are seeking after the occasion which stirs the student life to its depths which binds the student body with closest ties and marks the Hood-tide of school spirit, we must turn to the society contest Here each student finds a place.

' im' busy between times bowing and smiling a welcome to the friends of other years-1. e., of last year -who come Hocking back to receive a fresh inspiration and renew their youth. The contest of 1901 was a typical one. Every contestant did himself and his society credit. Unfortunately it is not in the nature of contests that all may win, but if there had been a dozen aspirants for each point on this occasion, it is not rash to assert that the ones who were counted the losers would have carried off second honors. The debate was doubly 'interesting because the points at issue were already familiar to the audience through the Supreme Court decision pending at that time. The contestants in all points presented pleasing variety in both selection and rendition. Excitement ran high, and the vigorous applause and general demonstration that greeted each speaker and followed him at the close of his effort furnished exercise in kind and quantity sufficient to relieve the strain of four hours or more of attentive listening. j In the decision of the judges the debate counts two points, vocal music, essay, declamation, instrumental music and oration each one point. Dr. Cook read the decisions, tantalizing the audience by prefacing with what seemed to be an interminable list of irrelevant announcements. The news came at last, however, and the Ellwoods had won the debate, the Gliddens all the other points. Needless to say the last thing on the program was mighty cheers. The literary judges were A. G. Lane, Chicago, Rev. Geo. H. Wilson, DeKalbg S. E. Bradt, DeKalb. The judges in music were Mrs. S. F. Parson, DeKalb, Miss Maude Lincoln, Ottawa, John L. Cook, Chicago. The Ladies' Lyric Quartet and Miss Constantine Lang added delightfully to the musical part of the program. r 1Recoro of GOTIICSIS Number of contests held ....... . 2 Number won by Ellwood . , . 1 Number won by Glidden . . . 1 Number of points won by Ellwood . . 6 Number of points won by Glidden . . 8 44 Zllhe CBliooen :Society F all organizations connected with the N. I. S. N. S. there is none which has furnished more real enjoyment to the students than the literary societies. When the week's work of study- ing is over one may spend a pleasant evening in the Auditorium listening to the students give A orations, sing or debate, or he may take part himself, which is equally profitable, for the great - benefit which one derives from appearing on the literary program cannot be overestimated. Q If we are able to judge the future by the past the Glidden Society has a brilliant career before it, and those who are yet to become members of the N. I. S. N. S. may count themselves among the favored if their names begin with the letters that will admit them into the society. The past year has been one grand series of victories-victory after victory. At the beginning of the school year there were many old students, thoroughly imbued with society spirit, who were able on that memorable day in the study hall to make such thrilling speeches concerning the one great event of the year- the literary contest. For weeks after that meeting when you saw a Glidden you also saw the purple ribbon. The contest came. Our contestants had been chosen with great care and had received such skillful training that after their efforts there remained only the decision of the judges to substantiate what already had been prophesied by all -- that the Gliddens had gained the victory. They received five of the seven points. The basket-ball games between the teams of the two societies fostered society spirit which had clcveloped so rapidly at the time of our literary contest. The game between the girls of the societies resulted in a score of 14 to 4 in favor of the Gliddens. Our girls did some skillful playing, and were spurred on to better work by the frequent yells from the gallery, by the waving of the banners and by the not-to-be-dispensed-with tin horns. A series of three games between the boys of the society followed. Our boys did good playing in all the games. Mr. Givens, the acknowledged athlete of the school, was always ready for any emergency that might arise. The Gliddens won two of the three games. Choice literary programs have been prepared by the committees. Mr. Madden acted as president during the term in which the contest storm was brewing, Miss Carpenter, while the storm was taking place, and Miss Lascelles during the calm which followed. It is difficult to say which served during the most trying time. A great many Gliddens leave our school at commencement, but the foundation of our society is so thoroughly estab- lished and such competent ones are ready to fill any places which may be made vacant that we rest assured that all will be well, and we who go shall remain as we were, true and loyal Gliddens forever. 46 4. ,4r"' .,.Pxf'A "Yr W .1 .X-' ' ivwif jg Mk 'ef- ,Q Givlibbcn Gontcstante H ICLEN HAM M RTHEI, PHILLI PS A LICE CROSBY DAVID BIAIJDEN JESSICA M.

For some time it R60 S 57 seemed as if our society lacked in spirit and interest, but as the winter term approached and contestants were elected the spirit rose. All the special meetings as well as the pro- gram meetings were well attended. The gatherings in the West Society Hall did much toward impressing upon every member of the society the fact that he, in part, was responsible for the victory or defeat, if it came. Well, wellwe remember them. The Ellwood Society, true to its sense of kind-heartedness, good will and generosity, allowed the Gliddens the majority of the points in the contest. Our friends made us a polite bow and recorded the second inter-society contest as a victory. Do not think, however, that our liberality has vanquished us. The excellence of the literary programs rendered during the year show the literary talent possessed by our society. The high standard of excellence once set up has not been allowed to fall. It has been a noteworthy, and at the same time encouraging fact, that the new students have taken such an active part in these programs. In graduation the society loses a number of its sturdiest members, yet we rest assured that the people left at the helm will pilot our society through the turbulent Waters of the coming year in the utmost safety. They have shown a willingness, an ability andpa determination that must succeed. Only those who have taken a part in programs know of the advantages to be derived from them. The strength gained from the eifort required to present a creditable number is inestimable. It is here that we gain freedom in speech and free ourselves from ourselves, so to speak. Here we receive a phase of culture extremely necessary to us as teachers and which we cannot get in any other way. Those who tottered from mere fear now stand firm as a rock, those who gesticulated wildly are calm and composed before any audience, those who made illogical statements state the profoundest truths in the plainest language, those who sang well, sing better, those who took no part are where they were. From all this we see that glory is written upon our banners, and in the coming year we shall hope again to add another victory. .18 wfy , ,..., IEHWOOC COIIICBIZIIIYB l'QUGI'1NliM. I'llll,l,Il'S N.

" lint the paper," they con- qi-fur M' tinued, " must come first," and come it did with results known to all. The first year of its QAIQ history was so preeminently successful, thanks to its editor, business manager, and staff, that QNX Nix no comment is needed. It was put on a strong financial basis, and a high literary standard X X was maintained. ' Owing to these facts the burden on the management of this volume has necessarily been lighter. It has not been our task to create a school paper in the strict sense, for the funda- mentals were already laid down, but to add to this foundation, to make the paper as much as possible bespeak our school life. We have striven to make the Norflzern I!!!-7102.5 a power in the school and yet in every way " our paper." A school paper does not deserve its name if it does not come to the students from the students, a mirror in which they see their own life reflected with perhaps enough shadows of other things to make the light and shade more interesting, It must be a live thing, keeping pace in every way with progress of the school. We have set our standard high. How nearly we have reached it remains for others to say. The spirit and interest shown by the students throughout the year cannot be too highly commended. In the first issue this year we asked for their loyal support. They have given it right royally with their money, time, literary productions, sketches and " Barbsf' The staff have "stood by." They have shown themselves responsible, capable persons, two necessary requisites for success in any line. But the board must come in for its share of praise. It has been "faithful in little things." Needless to say, the Faculty in the Faculty Section has conferred a favor on all. As the school year draws to a close and joyfully, yet sadly, are packed together the things that have meant so much to us here, we trust the little green cover of Volume II. of the .fV0rMer1z l!!z'2zoz's will not be left behind. If they are an index of a year full of work and pleasure, if their leaves, wl1e11 time has brought into other scenes and interests, are still turned to with the old time interest andinspirations, they will not have failed in their mission.

It has a membership of about seventy young women united for active Christian work. At the beginning of the school year the "new girls" were given a warm welcome by delegations of the association. Not less cordial was the welcome extended to them at the term social Saturday night. The large attendance of the faculty and students assured the association that it had the hearty sympathy of the school. The Y. W. C. A. contributes to the religious life ofthe young women by its devotional impossible to estimate the good accomplished by the weekly prayer meetings. Of all pleasant memories, the memory of these gatherings for prayer, praise and study will be to many the sweetest and most enduring. How often they will recall Estella jordan, the earnest president of the past year, and her faith- ful helpers. Good work has been done in all the departments. The Bible Study work is especially worthy of praise. Mrs. E. C. Page has conducted it and all have felt grateful for the privilege thus afforded. The associ- ation was represented by Alice Crosby at Geneva, and by Mary Garretson at the State Cpnference held at Bloom- ington. Miss Shields, the traveling secretary for state work, made a brief visit during the year and gave help- ful suggestions. The " Round Robin," a letter which is being circulated among the associations of the state, was greatly appreciated by all. The socials held during the year have added much to the social life of the school. As the year draws to a close, we feel thankful for the work the Association has accomplished. If it has helped the girls to a fuller realization of the power of Christ, if it has been a means of aiding the spiritual growth of its members, and has brought others to realize the necessity of living pure, Christ-like lives, it has accomplished the end toward which a great part of its efforts have been directed.

S. they .. have not permitted the latter to outdo them in the manifestation of school spirit as shown in the literary, Christian and athletic associations. The spiritual needs of the young men have been ministered to through the organization of the Y. M. C. A. The past year has been one of success for our association. Mr. Ragland, as our first president, took a deep interest in the work, was painstaking in the selection of his committees, and conducted the regular weekly meetings with interest. We were favored with frequent visits from our state secretary whose suggestions relative to the good of the association were kindly received and followed as closely as seemed possible. Notwithstanding our small membership we succeeded in sending a delegate to represent us last summer at the Lake Geneva Summer Conference of College Y. M. C. A. men. E. M. Phillips was given this opportunity and he took up the Bible study work there as given by Galen M. Fisher, of japan. Mr. Phillips has since had charge of the Bible section work and has been elected to the presidency of the association, which othce he has held with honor to himself and the association. The weekly meetings during the winter term were of unusual interest. Jointly with the Y. W. C. A., topic cards were printed containing the topics and list of the names of the leaders for each week. The Y. M. C. A. was fortunate in securing among its leaders several members of the Faculty together with those of the pastors of local churches. The talks given by these men were informal and on topics well suited to the needs of young men students. The Bible section meets for about three-quarters of an hour on Sunday morning. The work followed in this section is a systematic course laid down by Burton Sharman in "Studies in the Life of Christ, based on a Har- mony of the Gospel by Stevens and Bertonf' The work in the Bible class consists of a discussion of the work mapped out the week before, in sections, for daily study -in fact, one purpose of this work is to get students into the habit of daily Bible study. In the weekly class meeting it is intended that only questions which have arisen in the daily lesson shall be discussed. At these meetings we have usually resorted to the round table plan of discussion, a new leader being appointed for each week. Our membership includes about seventy-five per cent of the men in school, two-thirds of this number being active members. .P 4 g ? 8 54 Elie 1baIIowe'en llbartv K,-iff -' fTx f"N AMISID in song and story is the young lady of prepossessing appearance, who was very good when good, and horrid when she was bad. This is simply the artist's method of express- ing the versatility of her genius: being generally of such very commendable niien, the gtg-my Gb antipodal extreme was occasionally necessary to even up matters. 5 A similar truth seems to apply to every " student body." Habitual seriousness and prim behavior demand an occasional riot to maintain the social equilibrium. This is appar- 'sf' 4 ently the function of the Hallowe'en party, which seems already to have firmly established itself as one of the traditions of our precocious alma mater. A - . Q' As a " function," our IQOO Hallowe'en festivities were surely an undeniable success. . Did we not get some good wear out of old and discarded garments? And did we not glean the last remnants of dignity from certain professorial luminaries? Were not varied and inultitudinous objects and materials metamorphosed into DIRT upon the gymnasium floor? And didn't "everybody have a good time? " Everything normal became abnormal. Maidenly pedagogues appeared as rustic lassies, while youthful Freshmen paraded the corridors with all the studied pomposity of the post graduate. The fat appeared lean and the lean fat. Pages stalked sedately in linen dusters and the Parson Cwith some assistancej hid his sanctimoniousness under- neath a sumptuous bandana. Ancestral gowns and bonnets were resurrected by the fair ones, and overalls and top boots by those less fair. Games were played and everybody played tricks on everybody else. Even a shell game was worked on the corn. Arithmetic calculations, psychological phenomena and grammatical constructions yielded the floor to ways that are dark and tricks that are vain. Tag, blind-man's-buff, grab, and the proverbial drop-the-handkerchief were among the entrees. A potato race brought out the latent speed of the faculty, and developed the fact that some of them are pretty good hustlers. ' All in all, it was a pretty good line-up, and the manager of the show had good reason to be proud of the exhibit. The Hallowe'en party, with its fun and frolic, its apples and doughnuts and pumpkin pie, has come to stay. Let every prospective N. I. S. N.

The purpose of this organization e is to give all the girls who care for music, a chance to meet once a week and study some of the 6 - works of the best composers. We cannot but feel grateful to Dr. Cook for this golden opportun- Q ity and we feel very fortunate in securing such a competent and faithful leader as Professor Barradell, who comes every week from Chicago and devotes an hour to the instruction of the Glee Club. We organized one Tuesday afternoon at the beginning of the school year. There were about twenty of us assembled on the Auditorium platform and each took her turn in having her voice tested by singing an arpeggio and the scale for our instructor. We commenced by studying several selections arranged for ladies' chorus. As contest time drew near the girls thought more about this great event than of Lohengrin's Bridal Chorus, Our numbers decreased and interest began to lag 5 but we still kept up courage and hoped that we, along with the rest of the school, would be able to resume our former work. 4 At last it was decided to unite the two Glee Clubs and study an oratorio with a View to presenting it to the public. At the time this is written it has not been decided what oratorio will be studied, but I have heard it whispered that the Messiah is the one to receive the honor. C 56 ta JBOQS' ' CElee . Glub HIS organization had such an excellent start last year under the eflicient direction of Miss Patten "4" ' T fl that its impulse has been felt throughout this year. Seven of the fourteen boys were members a a last year. The new members have proved very satisfactory additions, on the Whole. During the first part of the year the rehearsals were held in the evening once ajweek. The attendance ' and enthusiasm for the work was all that a leader could wish. Later in the year semi-weekly rehearsals were tried, but were not found to be so satisfactory as to attendance- When the diiii- culties which attend the blending ofvoices to make a unified effect of harmony is taken into consideration, the attainment and the value of the Work of the club will be apparent. We have no phenominal voices-simply melodious voices that blend well and do creditable work. They have not been Worked to the limit. With more opportunity for practice much better Work could be done. As the school grows and a wider range for selection of voices and more opportunity for practice is afforded, the Boys' Glee Club will improve and contribute its pleasures and benefits to the happy life of the N. I. S. N. S.

The Kamera Klub may have been a little slow up to this spring-it took a few rambles, it is true, and did give an exhibition of work done by some members, but with the planting of potatoes and the raking of lawns its awakening came, and several very profitable trips and subse- quent meetings for discussion have been held. The club has a room on the third floor and an adjoining wash room. The latter has been fitted up as a dark room, and it serves its purpose admirably, being large enough to per- mit several persons to develop negatives at the same time. The club numbers fifteen members. Its ofiicers are a president and a secretary and treasurer. Mr. Switzer hlls the former ofiice and Mr. Poust the latter. Next year the school will possess a good stereopticon, and the club may find it of interest and value to make lantern slides of its negatives and possibly to give one or two exhibitions of work done in this line. 3unior Eramatic Glub Among the many new organizations of our new school the Junior Dramatic Club bids fair to be one of the most delightful. Its purpose is to present from time to time portions of the best dramas, thereby creating an in- terest in the highest form of literature. Since the drama deals with human life-its passions, conflicts, triumphs and failures-it touches us more vitally than any other form of literature, and because the drama is written to be acted, there is no better way of making these great masterpieces of literature real than by presenting them as scenes. The work this year has been on scenes from the " Merchant of Venice " and from " Ingomar, the Bar- barian." Ingomar is translated from the German, and for language, poetry and dramatic action it is hardly ex- celled in the history of the modern drama. The club meets with Miss Hoaglin for rehearsal every Thursday. 58 ,,,, J Ni iF,IX 91NQ5 u w mg: 7. , N My ' 'Mlr x M, a+ W 'U h x 'QM Wfh ffm -Y sf il- l ' - V+' .lvzl 'i+ fif: .1J5 fff '.ff? ff'a-W ' v1:. 1m z.f Hizfa. ju al 1 If 'YQ M iiE 51E7 V.g 2" ifa 5F5.

Organized for social and educational purposes, the society has well succeeded in carrying out its aims. While Ionia proper furnishes opportunity for delightful social life, its various sections have succeeded in linding a way to spend a pleasant hour 1 6 -6 i A with pront. 7 A will A. The work of the different sections during this last school year has been helpful and enter- taining to a high degree. Under the leadership of Miss Parmelee the Current News Section has followed the main problems and events of the year. An interesting collection of mounted pictures illustrating current history is one result of this section's work. The collection includes not only pictures illustrating important events, but also a number of amusing cartoons. Miss Rice has been in charge of the Travel Section, and under her guidance the members of this section, comfortably ensconced in a room at Normal, have taken extended trips over the continent. It is a cheap and delightful way of traveling. As Miss Rice has actually taken the trips, the necessary touch of realism has been given by her pictures and accounts of personal experiences. The Magazine Section has met with Miss Potter, every other week, at the home of Mr. Switzer. The pur- pose of this section has been to keep in touch with the literature of the day. At each meeting magazines were assigned to different members of the section for review, and then reports of these reviews were given, stories were read, and popular authors and their works discussed. The meetings have been informal and pleasant. They were always " come and bring your sewing " affairs and combined pleasure and profit in more senses than one. Miss Stratford has had charge of the Art Section. Their purpose has been to develop an acquaintance with and love for art in all its phases. The work this year has centered mainly upon the study of live or six of the most famous artists and their works. The latter part of the year has been devoted to the study of school-room decoration, with special attention to the pictures suitable for school rooms and the grades to which they are suitable. Judging from the work done by the Art Section for the Ionian receptions, we prophesy that their school rooms will be delightful places to visit. Owing to the illness of Miss Patten, the Music Section has given up its work for the present, but they trust that she will soon be able to resume her work. The Literary Section, under the direction of Miss Hoaglin, made a study of Hamlet. For lighter work Irving's Sketch Book was used. Many pleasant receptions have been given by Ionia during the year. Dr. McMurry and Mr. Switzer opened their homes to the society on two delightful occasions. S 60 x -Q' x ' x A" ft" -'--x '. ' '- ' lk.

To this end they at once took to the woods, and made systematic observations on the coloration and fall of leaves. All-day trips on Saturdays gave opportunity for many collateral studies, , Q9 5: C3 , such as lessons in horsemanship, cooking, catching squirrels in butterfly nets, repairing fences, and the like, for reports indicate that the Nature Study Club believes in having a good time. It is even rumored that there are some club secrets. Much was learned concerning the habits of many plants and animals. One lady actually mastered the distinction be- tween the hooting of an owl and the mooing of a cow. Bird migration and insect hibernation furnished interesting material. Ohio Grove and Miller Farm were among the places visited. is . During the winter season the meetings continued, and autumn studies Were organized into outlines for teaching, or supplemented by laboratory Work or round-table discussions. Several evolutionary topics have been considered g the lives of Thoreau and Agassiz have been studied, and the touch of their enthusiasm has quickened the pulse of humbler learners. The members of the club are Elizabeth Patten, Grace Hamm, L. W. Ragland, Lou Baker, Mary Garretson, Adda White, W. R. Mofet, Mrs. Philbrook, Eva Lee, Margaret Duffey and Fred L. Charles. The Nature Study Club believes most thoroughly that " to be a naturalist you' maun begin wi' natur'," and the burst of spring has found its members alert to glean more secrets from the nooks on the campus and from the Woods and fields about.

You gaze sorrowfully around, but find nothing more sympathetic than the bottoms of a dozen upturned cups. You wonder why such mighty draughts do not check the flow of words, but observe no abatement. During comparatively quiet intervals you catch fragments of the time-honored jokes still doing service. All subjects, however tech- nical, are satisfactorily analyzed. The range of topics is simply marvellous. The beefsteak and the weather are properly considered, and the daily happenings of the school receive competent criticism. All public personages, from the faculty to the firemen, are arraigned at this bar of judgment. The full janitorial system is iittingly eulogized, and the mud-stained way of future generations, bereft of these efficient aids, is ittingly depicted. Wheii allother topics of conversation have been exhausted the combined irony and invective of the club is focussed upon those unfortunate individuals whose emotional natures are potentially superior to their intellects. Each club has several specimens of these, but, such is the fascination of "love's young dreaml' that only in a few cases have these drastic measures proved successful. Isolation will be the last resort if an epidemic is imminent. But aside from these abnormalities the social side of club life is interesting. At morning and noon the rush of the day's work pervades the atmosphere, but at night we often have a pleasant, lingering time after the evening repast, sitting around the table or gathering in the parlor for a song. We sometimes reprove ourselves for wast- ing time, but I imagine that it is far from wasted. Years hence, when the weary years come creeping to us through the gathering gloom of night, Von Baer's law and the kinds of attention will be among the things for- gotten, but the memory of past hours of pleasure will still remain. In our mind's eye, we'll see again that goodly company gathered around the long tables in the old familiar places. The young man whose eating capacity was only equalled by his power of vocal expression, the kind- hearted one who gained your eternal friendship by giving you her pieg and most endearingly of all the individual at the end of the table who remained serenely oblivious to your frantic appeals for " bread." But the slow march of Time inclines our hearts toward charity, and we graciously forgive the " slings and arrows 'I of the past. The friendships formed and the happy times experienced will ever be among our most precious memories, and at the end we shall count ourselves among the favored sons of fortune if, in all life's devious, winding ways, we find no more disagreeable task than " boarding in a clubf, 67 Societas Hnnominata CQNQQN, N EDITORIAL in the Chimga Amc1'z'am and an article in the Oulfook were two of the factors that produced the Societas Innominata. The purpose of the organization is to form an acquaint- ance vvith some of the great scientiiic productions of the time. Half-hour meetings are held every night, and since November, Igoo, the time of the society has been devoted almost entirely to "Darwin,s Origin ot Species"-the greatest book of the nineteenth century. The work consists of reading and discussion, and from time to time some of the members of the faculty have presented special phases of the theory of evolution, and have given us a little clearer idea of the problems and diiiiculties involved. The work has not been light. The subject matter is difficult and the unvarying reg- ularity of the meetings has, at times, seemed a trilie burdensome. But the society is firmly convinccd that only by this method will it obtain the desired result. Our society holds a unique position among the organizations of the school. We believe it is accomplishing a work of the highest importance and one which has hitherto been neglected. We propose to extend the work in the near future along the same or closely related lines. . The Societas Innominata is not desirous of making original contributions to the theory of evolution, and engages in no search for missing links. It covets for its members a sympathetic attitude toward all rational attempts to explain natural phenomena An abiding sense of the prevalence of the eternal iron laws is the goal We wish to attain. And having obtained it we shall have a hrm foundation for our further building. Thereon we may hope to rear a philosophy of life which will enable us to meet the "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" as calmly as a river meets the sea. A 68 . ,.

And Mark, as usual, was correct. More than that, he hinted at the claim of football, the go-went-gone element, the slap- bank-smash feature which appeals to every person of the motor type. The "go" of the game is what makes people love it. So it is not surprising that the boys of the Normal his ,I , 0 f rf ' X 1' . . . X N NR-f s-AV A M J School, since they are of the "gow type minds, ordered a football practice the very Hrst day ..-XX X -, rf'!f D of school Only two weeks' time was available for practice before the irst game with the De Kalb High School team. After Roosevelt had finished his talk on the strenuous life, the two teams lined up on the campus. Neither side scored during the first half, although the ball was in the Normal's territory most of the time. In the second half Normal scored on a thirty-yard end run made by Givens, but the goal was missed. A little later Normal lost the ball on a fumble, and soon the High School scored, making the score 5 to 5. The second game of the season was played October 16, the enemy of this engagement being that gallant band of patriots, Company A. Almost before the game had started Company A made a touchdown. This touchdown gave the soldiers confidence g it also gave our team ginger, sand and grit-things that are superior to confidence. As a result, the Normal team began galloping across the soldiers' goal line, nor did they stop until they had scored 23 points against their opponents. In the gathering darkness Company A made a second touch- down, but they could do nothing so long as our boys could see which man had the ball. The strength and size of the soldiers made them favorites before the game g still it must be chronicled here, that the Normal boys were out that day for scalps. The score stood 23 to I2 in favor of the Normal team. Our ambition for larger game was fully satisfied on October 26. On that date the East Aurora High School team gave us a lesson which proved very profitable in its way. Normal secured the ball on the kick-off and returned it to the twenty-five-yard line. Aurora's ends were well protected and, therefore, close mass-plays had to be used. We had another defeat. Elgin Athletic Association administered it to us on November 2. The Elgin team was far too heavy, outweighing us at least twelve pounds to the man. The result now seems dreadful to contemplate. The halves were extremely short, but Elgin, when not caring for her cripples, improved her 76 A time galloping across our goal line three times. We didn't reciprocate-not even once, as we should have done for variety's sake. We do not wish " to cry over spilt milk," nor to boast, but in all candor we wish to assert that the Elgin Athletic Association can't do it again. The last game of the season was played on Thanksgiving day at the Sandwich Fair Grounds against the Sandwich High School team. The game was called at 3 o'clock, and Normal had to kick off against the wind. Nevertheless our fellows held Sandwich from downs the nrst time, forcing them to kick. This kick was short and Sandwich recovered the ball. Held for downs a second time, Sandwich again punted. Keith caught and ran back the punt to Sandwicl1's twenty-Eve-yard line. Then began a series of center tackle and short end plays which netted from three to seven yards each, and which speedily forced the ball over Sandwich's hitherto un- crossed goal line. Kays kicked an easy goal. On Sandwich's kick-off Keith caught the ball, but was downed in his tracks on Normal's twenty-ive-yard line. Again the short end plays were used, Givens carrying the ball. Eighty-live yards is a long distance to carry a ball, but this is what Normal did. A second time our fellows piled up behind that sacred goal line, mak- ing the score I2 to o. In the second half Sandwich put in some new players. Normal's goal was never in danger during the game, but Sandwich did hold us for downs once in the second half. Normal decided to make another touchdown. Starting with the ball on Sandwich's thirty-yard line, the backs proceeded to hurdle in H116 shape. It was some- thing new and called forth applause from the crowd, even though each play meant a good gain for Normal. The final score was I7 to o. . iv ,,, 71" V- A "Th - ,? ".fmav..11.4- .- .

But when November storms and cold come these same girls begin systematic training in athletics in the gymnasium. An organization known as the Girls' Athletic Association was effected November 14th. Four sections of work were organized in addition to the Basket Ball Section, which was formed last year. The plan of the organization was to have each section elect a member to rep- resent it in a board of control, and this board was to have, in addition to these representa- tives of the student body, the members of the faculty who were appointed to take charge of the work in the gymnasium. The organization was purely voluntary, and the fact that one hundred and twelve girls became members proves that Normal girls are not behind their college sisters in a hearty interest in athletics. Two sections in the Emerson Physical Culture and the Columbian rhythmical movements meet every Tues- day with Miss Hoaglin, and two sections in free gymnastics and club swinging meet with Miss Rice on Thursday. The Association decided that music would add to the pleasure of the exercise and rented a piano for the winter months. Much of the so-called athletic work done in gymnasiums is SfVdZ'7ZZ.7Zg of muscle rather than z'mz'7zz'1zg of muscle, and ultimately does more harm than good. But the purpose of the work done by this association is to train the will, strengthen the muscles and nerves, and develop grace, suppleness and poise. The first point of attack is the poor standing position and the ungraceful carriage The larger purpose of the work is to put the young women in possession of a system of exercises that will not only insure them health, but will make them promulgators of the doctrine of health and enable t-hem to wage a vigorous war against the common deformities -crooked spines, sunken chests, and weak shoulders.

We realize now that last year we did not truly know the Ay' game. It required a contest with some outside team to make us see this, and our hrst meeting 6 with the I. S. N. U. team served this most salubrious purpose, if it did nothing else. In this - ., game our boys were clearly outplayed. Such quick passing of the ball and such good team work as our adversaries showed were a surprise to us. But the lesson was not lost upon us, and if the I. S. N. U. boys gave us a surprise here we believe they were about equally taken back by our improved playing in the return game. It is true we did not win, but our boys were not outplayed at any point, and we believe that we would have won the game had it lasted a few minutes longer. The first two home games were played by girls' teams, the " Yellow " and the " White." The " Yellow" consisted of Misses Phillips, Spence, Garrity, Watson and Smith, the " White," Misses Baker, EW Phalen, Lyons, Crosby and Gagin. The score was 7 to 6 in favor of the " White." ,gf . . . A The boys' inter-society games were very closely contested. The first resulted in a score of 16 to I3 in favor of the Gliddensg the second, 5 to 8 in favor of the Ellwoodsg and the third, 9 to IO in favor of the Gliddens. Thus the Glidden team won two of the three games, and counting points, they won 3I to Ellwood's 30. The players for the Glidden Society were Kays, Givens, M Hipple, Poust, Quick and Lucas, Givens being captain, and for the Ellwood Society, 4 ' Wiltse, Phillips, Mofet, Greenough, Ragland, Lloyd and Hansen, with Wiltse as captain. , These games were well played, with few fouls on either side. They were exciting enough Ja'a1gi.fQii,'Zf..3Zil'TR m"i'd' for the most exacting, and society spirit ran high among the spectators as well as the players. The girls have played but one inter-society game, and that was easily won by the Gliddens-this evidently being a Glidden year. The score was 4 to 14. Misses Baker, Crosby, Phillips, Smith and Gagin upheld the purple, 9 while Misses Spence, Lyons, Phalen, Nilson and Watson were wearers of the green. Next came the two games with the I. S. N. U., the most important of the season. fr? The first was at DeKalb, February 9. In it our boys went gallantly down to the tune of QNX, W 7 to Io. The second was at Normal, February 16, where the tune was nearly the same, 1 3 to I5 both in the minor key In the first game our players were lined up as follows: jj"-' 7 X ff- I Goal throwers, Kays, Phillips, center, Mofetg guards, Givens, Wiltseg substitute, Hipple. ii - S2 I GIRLS' BASKET BALL TEAM .-A ,Sv GIR LS' BASKET BALL ASSOCIATION 'gli Boys' BASKET BALL TEAM ELLVVOOD long since outgrown all such superstitions as belonging to the In the second the line-up was like this: Goal throwers, Wiltse, Kaysg center, Mofetg guards, Givens, Hippleg substitute, Phillips. We feel that our prospects for a strong boys' team next year are very good. Nearly all the old players will be back and there are some others already in school who give good promise to shine in the game another season. The coaches, Keith, Charles and Switzer, have worked hard with the team, but they are ready to work harder. The important thing is that training for the game shall begin promptly and vigorously at the close of the football season. The Oak Park girls came here April 6, and went home in sorrow. To be beaten is bad enough, but 9 to 1! Even the victory they won the next week in the return game only partly made up for it, since the score was 6 to 3. Anyway, we haven't heard anything about playing the " rubber." The Brst Wheaton game was played in that classic town, and our girls gracefully yielded up the game like ladies-as they were expected to do by Wheaton, but not without ' the honors of war, since they captured four points T to Wheaton's eight. But the day of reckoning for Wheaton came all too swiftly! April 19th they played the return game. This time they made the four and our girls made the eight, and then they piled five more on top of it just for luck! Wheaton may be- lieve that thirteen is an un- lucky number, but we have childhood of the race. The girls who played in these games -W are Misses Baker, Watson, Smith, Spence, Phillips and Gagin. GLIDDEN c S6 Counting points on these four games, it will be seen that our team has scored QQ points to the adversaries' 19, a showing of which the girls need not be ashamed and of which the school may well be proud. We have indeed enjoyed our basket ball this year. We feel that we have accomplished much by our games, for they have been good ones and well worth seeing. The players both in the boys' and girls' team have acquired considerable skill and agility and have thus made the game so interesting that the students have turned out well at all the games. As a consequence, much school spirit has been engendered. Some of the games played in the evening were especially fine ones for the interest, spirit and skill manifested. We are justly proud of our last game, the one with Wheaton College. To an expectant and ELLXVOOD Q '4 I M :gm ' ' ' A' A . fffff-els.. 4 GLIDDEN excited audience of some four hundred our girls showed a good, lively, scientihc game, and all felt it was a good wind- up for the season's work in basket ball. If the teams have done someqline, systematic work this year, it is not all due to the faithful practicing nor to the ability of the players themselves, but it is due in a consider- able degree to the earnest, helpful coaching and managing given by Profs. Charles, Keith and Switzer. The teams are indeed grateful to these instructors for their time and interest. Again the teams wish to thank the students for the courteous way in which they have treated all visiting teams. Such a spirit of civility and politeness speaks well for the school, and we have been very happy in our games with other schools. Then all hail to basket ball! We know its true worth, may it meet with as great success next year! JBase JBall Eeam, 1901 FRED L. CIIARLES . Manager and Coach VICTOR C. KAY5 . i . . Captain HENRX' VV. HAUSEN Catcher ROV POUST p .

A very commendable beginning was made last year, the record being three victories and three defeats, againts strong teams. Last year's policy has been continued, formidable opponents' and possible defeats being preferred to weakling antagonists and inglorious victories. To this end two games were arranged with Wheaton College, which had already learned a lesson or two from our girls in basket ball. No arrangements were made with Steinman College, of Dixon, which, apparently smarting from the ten runs scored against them last spring, failed to file an ap- plication for further trouble this year. The opening game was played as usual, with the DeKalb High School, and resulted, as usual, in a score of scores for each side, with the balance, as usual, in favor, of the High School. Wheaton College invaded our territory April 27, a rather early date for so hard a game, but no other time could be ar- ranged. For six innings the contest was a pretty one, with the score at four to four. In the seventh came trouble, eight runs strong, and the game was won Cby Wheatonj, but there was much ground for encouragement. Another High School catastrophe, with tallies galore on either side, furnished the third event of the season. Then, over the hills from Sycamore, dangling High School scalps from their belts, came the Crescents, fully confident that new trophies awaited them on "Glidden Field " The mighty Thiele delivered his most sinuous curves with all the speed at his command, but Normal bats were waiting to meet them. Poust pitched well for five innings, when Capt. Kays was given his first trial in the box, making a very successful debut. In a most spectacular finish, involving a home run by Hansen, a two-bagger by Kays, and a single by Poust, the game was won in the last of the ninth, the score standing 1 1 to Io. Since this game, both Poust and Kays have been used in the box each game, and the plan has worked very well. M. D. Wells 81: Co. were the next victims. The return game at Wheaton was played May 11, on a newly plowed field and in a blinding dust storm, which impartially filled the eyes and besmirched the features of both players and spectators. Judging simply from appearances, it was a case of "dirty ball," but our boys good na- turedly accepted the small end of the score, as they had hardly expected to win. The last game played, to date, is worth recording, since the victory over the High School, in the third game of the series, marks a break in the hoodoo which has hitherto attended us i11 these games. It is the first Nor- mal-High School game that we have won, and the first in which the score was low CII to 95. D. K. H. S. has succumbed to Sycamore twice and to N. I. S. N. S. once, and Sycamore has succumbed to N. I. S. N. S. If we win the next two games scheduled with these two teams, the honors "in these parts" are clearly ours, if we lose, - but even now the printer is calling for our copy. A The base ball season of IQOI will be remembered with pleasure by the boys on the team. The attendance at the games has not been what it ought to be, but the players have been faithful, they have stolen all the time they could appropriate from the busy life of the Normal student, and have devoted it to practice and to a jolt in the "little red wagon." 90 'Grack Ream J. A. SWHZER . . Manager and Coach SANFORD GIVENS . . . . Captain IU' ehgf H S THE NORTHER goes to press, great preparations are under way for our track meet with the East Aurora High School, which takes place june 8 on our athletic held. For some weeks the boys E 1 ' : dai iii, 19 ci. have been faithfully training under the direction of Mr. Switzer. While the entries for the event ll-3 J J are not settled at this writing, something can, perhaps, be foretold as to the probable placing of the men. The 'L sprints H will be hotly contested events, Givens, Kays, Lucas and Poust working i for them. In the quarter-mile run are Lucas, Poust, Reichardt and Givens, in the half-mile, Greenough, Reichardt, Miller and W'iltseg in the mile, Greenough, Miller and Wiltse. The pole vault is very uncertain, for Frederick, Givens and Kays are very evenly matched and at a height, too, that will make it necessary for the Aurora boys to " hump themselves " to reach it. In the broad jumps it probably lies between Frederick and Lucas to uphold the honor of the N. I. S. N. S. The men who are training for the " weights " are Madden, Porcheur, Phillips, Kays and Givens. What the outcome of this meet with the East Aurora High School will be, no one can foretell. We think the prospects are exceedingly bright, for our boys possess at least one very necessary characteristic for success in this line-I mean genuine grit. Certain it is, if they are defeated they will die hard. The meet of last year with the M. D. Wells was one of victory for us. Unfortunately the oliicial record was lost and only the names of the winners could be given in the record below. Givens took first place in six events -a phenomenal record. This year he has very Httingly been chosen as captain of the team. 1Recorb 1900 1lfiommIs vs. Im. ED. 'wells Shoe Go. ifIRsT s1fJCoND ifIRsT SECOND IOO-Xvilffl Dash S. Givens Broad jump .

A simple, homely picture that has in it a wondrous touch of nature, and our hearts warm toward Domsie as toward a friend we've known and loved. Only a pedantic old schoolmaster, who knew little beyond his craft-a grand old pagan, who loved learning with a love surpassing the other loves of men-and who was a "guid friend to many a puir laddief' If our final eulogy be such as this, no philosopher or man of science can deny our title to immortality. And one gets to wondering sometimes if that old spirit of reverence for learning is really dead. This is a commercial age and most things are measured by the touchstone of utility. A great university is a body corporate with wide political interests. To spend time and money get- ting an education is simply making a good investment, much as one would invest in reliable stock. Genius is estimated by its industrial value and its light is forever dimmed by the dull glitter of gold. Perhaps it is well that Domsie passed away before this present day. The poor old man would have been sorely grieved at many things we hardly notice. A great university was to him as sacred as the cross that stood on Calvary's hill, education was a glorious opportunity to commune with the great minds of the past 3 genius was the ire that long ago was brought from heaven to cheer the sons of earth. This regard for learning was a high attribute of Domsie. It was part of the atmosphere of his life and brought great fruitage of loving service to the world. The spirit of this old scholar is not to be had for the asking and no man has gold enough to buy it. If it comes not through patient, tireless effort, he will doubtless go to his long home without it. A man may store his mind with all the past has snatched from time and still not approach the ideal. It is not merely that he know, he must have paid the price and realized, through self-sacrifice and labor, the kinship of the universe. He must long for truth and hail her coming as the weary watchers of the night hail the first faint sign of dawn. He must have labored for her and won by long, hard years of work something that he can call his own. So will he come to realize what truth has meant to ages past. So will he know that all the lore of life is fragrant with the deeds that men have done for love of knowledge. A These pioneers of learning wear no glittering insignia of their rank. They have small share in the plaudits which the world gives to its favorites. To work patiently in the face of doubt and derision, to live a life apart from that of other men, to die before his work has been recognized-this is often the fate of him who seeks to 94 advance the frontier of knowledge. And considering the past, it is small wond er that the number of real scholars has been and continues to be comparatively small. Gilileo and Bruno sleep with their fathers and the rack and the stake are memories only. But the world has a fiercer fire than that born of fagots, a greater agony than that of shattered bone and quivering muscle. He who fearlessly brings to the bar of Reason one tithe of the sacred Past will soon realize that the days of martyrdom are not over. But a reward comes, though it be tardy, and sometime his name will be inscribed on the walls of the temples of learning and in the hearts of the people. Even greater reward than this will be the tender reverence of those who come after him. Some student, with grave, clear eyes, will gaze down the long vista of the past. There he will see the dark and toilsome way by which this scholar came. Each crag and stone will speak of victories won. And the student's heart will go out in love and gratitude to him and to all others who have loved learning. But now another question greets us. What would this spirit mean to the future? What would it mean to this glum old world that bears its weight of sin and Woe so silently and only in rare moments cries out against the anguish of its lot? Grandest and best of all, it would mean that our old idea of reward would be gone forever. In all our labor we would see a better, nobler end and object. At last we would know the fallacy of such terms as failure and success. The stigma of defeat would tarnish no more the fair fame of those who fall in life's great battle. Poverty would be as logical and consistent as wealth, and the aching shame that poverty entails would bring no more proud, tender hearts low in the dust of time. We are glad to know that there are still those among us, in widely different walks of life, who, to a great extent, realize our ideal. But the task ef perpetu- ating this spirit of loyalty to learning must forever remain with those who teach and those who preach, whether with tongue or pen. To these the weary world will at all times look for succor. If they fulfill their mission they will have a place in that long list of heroes who have changed gloom to glory. And who could long for better comrades? Great, tender souls who bear, with brave and - loyal hands the torch of Reason and count not the cost. And now to us there comes this grand possibility of effort. It is for us alone, no other can do our work. It is our high privilege to take this torch of Reason with reverent, faithful hands and hold it high, that light may conquer darkness still. W. R.

That is, unless a boyish j spirit of winter fun or, possibly, business cares should call one forth. Surely, if the mood is cj 3 an in-door one, the elements have conspired to augment it. Heavy, dry snow, cold and crisp, G all day long 5 an imperfect attempt of Boreas and his wintry colleagues to rival that most per- ' fect of in-door days, a rainy day in April. On such occasions my mind assumes a distinctly in-door mood-reminiscent, meditative forecasting, summing up the significance of the past and tl1e present, and trying to apply them to the future. When the body is confined within the house, the mind likewise remains within its inner chambers, leaving all aggressive thinking for a more propitious time. I wander from room to room, read a fragment from some book, then sort a few almost forgotten papers, stir the fire, then copy some old notes into more permanent form, con- stantly running across some piece of work that long ago appealed to be done, but which was answered only with postponement. How prone we are to postpone, delay and procrastinate-at least the editorial we! And it takes an in-door day to prick our conscience in the matter. We get better acquainted with sister, father, brother, mother, on such a day. The canary bird and the cat learn to know us better, every nook and cranny of the house becomes a better friend from the forced companion- 2 ship and fellow-feeling of an in-door day. We realize from observation the genius of a good honsekecper, who must know the details of a thousand and one professions- We sympathize somewhat with her and feel assured of innate goodness creeping over us as we clumsily sweep the morning's accumulation from the kitchen floor, or by watching the steak while mother runs down cellar, thus assist in preparing the noon-time meal. Such days, often frowned upon, should be welcomed with appropriate exercises. A truly in-door day comes but seldom, and when one arrives we should make the most of it. Then, if ever, do we become acquainted with ourselves-with the recesses of the home and of the mind. f All hail the in-door day ! El 1Robin's Song 0 Q IS the early dusk of a mild April evening. Yonder a robin chirps his evening song as he hops Q 66 -0 from limb to limb in an old apple tree. A light breeze bears upon its breath the odor of earth newly upturned, of smoke from smouldering bonfires in the distance, and of fresh grass spring- - . ing up from its winter thraldom. An ordinary evening-beautiful, to be sure-but like thousands of other evenings. Ah, those other evenings! What a host of memories are awakened by the thoughts of other eve- nings, of other days g days when themes and note-books weighed heavily upon us 5 days when the urchins in the Practice School demonstrated the doctrine of original sin 5 yet, withal, days of joy and gladness, for " Each morning saw some task begun, , Each evening saw it close. Something attempted, something done, Had earned a night's repose." Now robin's friends have joined him in a grand symphony -surely they will burst their little throats-and melody, variations and accompaniment swell to a sweet Crescendo. As real music always makes us think, so this happy song brings to mind the pleasant things in days gone by. Once more are lived over the rambles about the campus, the excursions along the Kishwaukee, the tramps through the woods in search of hepaticas, the early morning calls on our feathered neighbors in the t'Addition," the ex- citement of contest time, our interest in the N0rz'her7z l!!z'n0z's and in the soci- eties and kindred organizations, and again are heard the fatherly admoni- tions from the auditorium platform. What a source of inspiration to our daily round of labor were all these ! And now dark days are brightened and rough places smoothed by the memory of those days. The past can never return, but from it radiates a light so illumining the life within that with the poet we can say truly, " My mind to me a kingdom is.'l But darkness is fast settling upon the earth. The robins' chorus has become a drowsy twitter. They chirp a sleepy " goodnight ! " and all is silent. NORBIAL LAKE ANNA M.

IOO TRANGE things happen and exist in these days and times of ours. But about the strang est fact to me is, that as common an affair as a normal school is in Illinois, it has never yet been accurately defined, nor has its function been correctly stated. The writer, therefore proposes to win for himself a lasting reputation by succeeding wherein all others have failed In the first place, as to the definition, a normal school is a slow process of consumption which works both ways. The way of it is this: A varied quantity of .text books is oifered you which you proceed to consume or swallow as john did in Revelations. If you succeed the taste is very sweet until examination time comes, and then -. If you do not suc "' ceed, you in turn are consumed with withering flames of sarcasm. T The normal school in its fundamental idea is religious even as the Bible- The good i book saith, "Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest The normal school saith, "Come unto me all ye that labor and I will make you labor harder than ever. I will increase the burden upon your backs and multiply your woes an hundred foldf' I have heard it said that if one ever succeeds in getting through such a school and maintains his health in the meantime, he will never afterwards die, which is in the strictest accordance with the promise, "Whosoever endureth unto the end for him there is laid up a crown of everlasting life." The explanation whereof is this: if you endure unto the end it is simply because you possess such an iron constitution that you could not die if you had to. And when old earth is tired of you here she will not trouble you with the formality of death, but will send you up to heaven in a flaming chariot of ire drawn by eight normal school professors, who likewise will be enveloped in iiames. Then will be your sweet compensation as you laugh at their sufferings and mock at their torments The function of the normal school is said to be two-fold, namely: to make teachers of the men and wives of the women. As to the success of the former, I am sure I cannot say authentically. As far as my own personal experience goes, I have a distinct knowledge of at least one man who has been converted into a teacher by a normal school. As to the lat ter function the result is decidedly more pronounced. From that portion of the scripture which reads, "Wives, subject yourselves unto your husbands," I take it that the only re quirement of a wife is subjection to her husband. This doctrine is inculcated into the women in the normal school from the beginning to the end. She becomes so subject to subjection that if a chipmunk should walk up and whistle at her she would begin to sub In conclusion, my best wish for the normal boys is that they will each and every one succeed in securing for themselves one of these women as wives, and I notice with a great CHARLES GREENOUGH he llbrairies HESE are the prairies beautiful, between The mountains of thezeast and of the west, A thought of God wrought out in wondrous green Through glacial centuries of vast unrest.

I was lonely, :md my eyes Iilled with tears. I was not sad, but frou1 some depth within me there welled up an ocean of sweet memory, of aspiration and of universal sympathy,-and as the silent voices spoke to me, a little spray from that ocean of pathos came to my eyes as tears. I went out and looked at the stars, the sentiuels of heaven watching through the lonely night and my loneliness became transformed into a sym-pathos with them as they watched over sleeping Nature. And I asked that I might join them in their guardianship over a care-worn world, that my poor life might be made pure, and that by some light of radiant deeds I, too, might aid in driving back the darker shades of night and add some bit of blessing to mankind. . Pitter, patter! Pitter, patter! Hear the little raindrops on the roof. How vividly they bring back that night, long past and gone now, when our little Gem left us-our rough diamond. That sweet, contented, quiet smile which lighted up his pale little face as he looked up so wistfully into mine and said, "Sister, I wish you would come, too"-oh! it haunts me yet. You did not know him. You cannot understand. He was so frank, so boyish, so lovable in every way. Why did he have to go? He caught a fever, and owing to his delicate frame there soon was nothing left for me of my little Gem. The rain was falling softly on the tin roof outside, the shadows flickered to and fro on the walls, and I sang the songs my little Gem liked best,--songs with stories and pictures in them. He lay there with his big blue eyes fixed on my face. And I sang on and on, though my heart was breaking. At last the pretty eyes closed softly and I sang softer and softer till the sound died away in a mournful echo. The room was quiet. Nothing but the soft patter of the rain drops outside could be heard. I looked at my little Gem. What had happened? What made that change? Why did llly heart beat so fast and then stand still in terror? I bent over him and called softly, "Gem I oh Gem, look up!" But it was useless, oh, so useless! The tired little heart had ceased to beat. Gem was dead. -..- - - -.v-fN.-.v -we -- as-1-. - ' e - all 1- 4- .f.4- -Q'ff:.z,z-zwwzzv .f.wf,f V 7921 . ....

And here there dwelt a soul That longed for light and thought strange thoughts The earth and air and sea g a dreamy lad, Who gazed up at the sky and fain would reach The end of space and solve the mystery That lurks forever in those starry depths, Who saw life waken in the dull, cold seed And wondered why it was, who felt the throb And pulse of life, but longed to find its source. His mind was like a fledgling bird, whose wings Were poised and quivering for that longer flight, Whereto the voices of his dream did call. And so one day he crossed the pleasant hills Which every day were bathed in sunset flame, And passed into the world beyond. And when The robins built their nests again in spring, And flowers were blooming in the shady woods, He was not there. The playful squirrels heaped anew Their hoard of nuts without a riv'1ing hand, And swallows built their nests and thronged about The dusty rafters undisturbed. Within The land which lay beyond the range of hills Our traveler made himself a home, and now Those restless, eager hands with reverent touch Are lifting one by one the crumbling leaves Cf that vast volume which is loved of men, about And is as old as human thought. With eyes That dim with tears he reads the first rude lines Inscribed 011 that great day, when man first deemed His thought of worth, and left it as a gift To all the future sons of earth. From then Till now, no page is incomplete. Gn each, Une reads of some great victory for Truth. And oftentimes a stain of blood remains To tell more vividly than words, what man Has paid for this, his chiefest treasure. Through It all the same great questions run. The 'L How " And " Why " which he desired so much to know Have quivered on the lips of many since Man's course began. The last page has been read, And eyes that once were bright and clear are tired, And seem quite weary now, as once again They look up at the stars. He thinks of how He did the same in days gone by, and from The past there comes a vision and he sees His home so far away among the hills, The grass and leaves and all the flowers he loved Are dancing in the sunlight as the winds Of summer gently pass. And all around, From every well remembered spot, there comes, Like incense sweet, the perfumed breath of peace. And then imagination leads his thoughts To that dark path whereon the sons of men Have traveled on their weary, endless march From long ago to now. And then in gloom and Bitter lonliness he knelt and prayed That he, like one of old, might sometime see 1 His heart's desire. The field and wood were gay With Howers, and birds were singing in the trees, When he who left so many years ago At last came home. The one who went was young, But he who comes is old and gray g his brow Is furrowed deep with thought and care. And he Is great, men say. For this great, careless world Is sometimes kind, and this poor country lad Has given to the world what others use For self alone. The " Why " and " How H are still Without an answer g but a peaceful calm Is on his face. He sought long years for light VVith which, when found, to banish sin and pain, And solve the mighty problems of the past. He found instead a lesser light, that shines Upon the path of man and cheers his way. There are no solemn rites nor mysteries In that sweet, simple art, that makes of life A dream of perfect joy. And now within His home, our traveler weary with the weight Of years and honors, rests secure. He loves To watch the sunset o'er the hills, nor seeks To pass beyond. He sees the stars at night And feels no fevered longing. Smilingly, With calm and quiet pulse, he waits to greet The closing scenes of life, and never doubts The wisdom of the end that comes to all That lives. W. R.

Efiifof '01 Annual: You ask me concerning my recollections of school life during the first year of the N. I. S. N. S. It is pleasant to have occasion to think over those days. Of the many vivid impressions, that of the growth and organization of the school is most distinct to me. We came to find our beautiful home with many an unhnished floor, yet what a lesson we learned as we saw the fair mosaic develop under the hands of the toiling Italians-a symbol of the perfecting of our own lives, just begun. , What a spirit of unity and good will was engendered and maintained in the organization of our literary and art societies, musical circles and athletic associations. We were made to feel that we were indeed charter members of the great institutiong for was it not we ourselves who chose, for the coming years, the school colors, song and yell? So our interest, love and feeling of responsibility for the school grew, yet never did it become a burden, for in times when advice and help seemed necessary we found just what sympathy and practical aid we needed in our faculty. And here again we found ourselves highly favored, with the student body not very large We were enabled to come into close personal contact with our teachers, whose friendship and influence we value so highly and shall prize through all the years for the aspirations they aroused within us. This one year will help us ever to " stand by."

Haffb I IU Ghe 1tBiological laboratory ' HAT did you say, stranger- that you would like to take a look through our biological labo- 0 ratory? Well, just step inside and I'll show you around. You see, the real head of the department-the genuine biology man-went away this morning in search of his pct snake, and he may not be back again until evening-that depends upon the snake-so he has left me to be master of ceremonies until he returns. It happened in this way: Yesterday some one took the snake out for a little recreation, and when he put it back again he forgot to put the cover atm, on the box, and so has caused all this annoyance. I have never been able to understand why people cannot put the covers on things when they take them off. And now, just a word of caution before we proceed any further: Keep your lingers off things. If you 'rind a kernel of corn growing between two panes of glass, or a miniature field of oats grovting under a glass jar, let them alone. NVe have no end of trouble every year with visitors who come here and, thinking to help us, rearrange things to suit themselves. And now, if you are ready, we will proceed. Do you see that row of bottles by the window? Well, the students in this institution do not eat lunches any more. They put them into those bottles, sprinkle a little pepsin and other things over them and then go away. The pepsin and the other things do the work and the students have the extra time to finish their tablets. But here are the frogs. We have them with us at all times of the year. Other animals, such as the cray-fish and the salamander, come and go, but the frog is always here. We manage it in this way. When the time comes for the frogs to get sleepy and to retire, we preserve a few to last us until they wake up again. Do we use sugar in preserving them, did you say? Oh no, we don't use sugar in preserving things any more. We use a new substance called formalose. It's more fragrant and not nearly so sticky. I know you are wondering why so many things in here are standing on their heads. Well, I'll tell you why. This is the season of the year for making experiments in geotropism. W'e turn things upside down and the pull of the earth straightens them out again. But here comes the real biology man and I must be going. He will show you the birds, the turtles and all the other won- derful things. But before I go there are a few words I would like to say to you by way of advice. If ever you come here as a student and have work to do in this laboratory, provide your- self beforehand with a pair of eye-glasses, and then when you come begin to count. Count everything-the plates on the turtle, the toes on the tadpole, the scales on the iish-every- thing. Go into higher mathematics, if necessary. We often deal with infinitesimals here, and you might also need to recall your knowledge of the transcendentalism of pie. Next, label everything you have countedg and lastly, keep up your nature notes, and always have your tablet ready to hand in on time.

But there shall be a glory More than sunset and the star-beam When Wanderers shall make the Port, And I come home to thee. A. C. G. Echoes from the 1Rostrum There are no vacation days in this matter of line living. Do or die. Stand by. Nothing in the world is so precious as real man- hood and womanhood. Keep OE the glass. Let us cultivate true gentility. Remember that there is more in digging ditches than throwing dirt out of a hole. Sleep well. Il2 The greatest work of the teacher is to get right ideas into human souls so that their lives will be de- termined by them. Behave yourself and don't make any fuss about it. Fill your place full, no matter how small it is, then you are great. The teacher must realize that he is a genuine, de- termining force. Never mind what others do g outstrip yourself. f ', M f'fq4 :S V T,:5Lf5iTs29. 'V'1d'4. . Stray leaves from ED. fllbabbeifs Eiarv INIARCH 2, IQOI'WCDt to Glidden Society meeting to-night with Miss Katherine O. The weather was bad, but she didr1't seem to mind that. Had au idea that she was very matter-of-fact, but she's good company. Guess I'1l try it again next week. MARCH 9-Took Miss O. to Society to-night. My opinion of her improves. She's a delightful girl. MARCH I6-Really, I seem to be quite a star. Had my picture taken this morning with the other members of the J. F. F. Society. I went to the informal Heart and Mitten Party at the Hurt Club to-night. It was a proposal affair and I proposed to six or seven girls. Miss O. gave me a " heart." Hope she meant it. MARCH 2o-The term closes to-morrow and then hurrah for Damascus! I wish I had made arrangements to stay here a day later and then I could have traveled part of the way with "Bess', and ','Nan." APRIL I-WHS pretty well awake to-day. Was fooled only nine times. APRIL 2-GOI into DeKalb this afternoon. Had a jolly time to-night. In the midst of it we had our pictures taken by flashlight. I know I looked crazy, but then I had on Bess' hat. APRIL I3-Saw the game at Oak Park last night. Went into the city this morning. Bought a necktie for my cousin, and a box of cracker-jack for "Nan," Saw Miss B., but I guess I'1l not mention that in DeKalb. Enjoyed the concert to-night with "Bess" On the whole it has been quite an eventful day. APRIL 22-A111 quite provoked. While strolling along the Kishwaukee this afternoon, I found that "Bess" knows that I saw Miss B. in the city. APRIL 26--Dead broke. Couldn't go to the concert, but she went anyway. So I went serenading with the boys. :APRIL 27-Was on for the debate to-night, so we went. Afterward we enjoyed sodas. The night was so clear, the moon so beautiful, that the study of the stars was delightful. I wonder if the future will prove true the horoscopes that we read. II4 wut Ye gods, your help I pray, A task that would dismay A Muse of ancient day, And bid the god of song To sing with holy fear The theme he does revere Too much to desecrate. Now this has mighty Fate Declared with high degree A task for lowly me. To sing our faculty Full well and worthily. And so, to pay the homage due That mystic body, I pray you My pen to guide and make it say just what our teachers do each day. In here are forms quite tl1in and rare, No bodies have they-brains to spare. For their delight the leader, john, A noble and a mighty one, Tells how in other lands as found To brains there are fair bodies bound And thus enthralled to lowly ground This doctrine, too, adown the hall, Another John, as names befall, Expounds to Junior youths and dames, Whose language must be that of james. Across the hall a few steps take, And here Miss Hoaglin sits in state. She tells the wondrous sound of A jfacultg Il As varied as an April day, And what a nian called Hamlet said, And how in vain poor Portia plead. And here Miss Rice, wish magic wand, just touches sky and earth and pond. Lo! all their secrets they disclose There nothing is but what she knows. Miss Potter now with lovely grace, With eye aflame, aglow her face, Explains the thought which Grecian mind Long since did treasure for mankind. Across the hall and to your right Miss Patten says, with smile so bright, " It surely must be one of three, Now is it der or das or die? " Miss Stratford as the Greeks of old Drew living forms from marble cold. So she, on paper blank and white, Draws scenes and forms so like to life That strangers have been known to pluck Real daisies from her pictured nook. Desceud the stairs, and to your right Sits Page enthroned like ancient knight. He calls before him with a word The heroes slain by shot or sword, And lo! he bids each one confess His noble deeds or wickedness. Across the hall, on northern side, Where squares and circles do abide Miss Parmelee with smile of cheer, Makes puzzling problems seem so clear That Euclid we no longer fear, But love and serve him and revere. Here Parson tells that mystic lay That fairy-tale of modern day, How 'tis that fractions are so queer, A fact that many love to hear, And why they stand upon their heads As do the bees in flower beds, g Wheii nectar sweet, with rare delight, They seek while crawling out of sight. And now in room with curving bow, All Nature's children here do grow, Rare beasts and plants do here abound, And snakes, too, without fail, are found. CLet no feline her soft foot trace Upon the threshold of this place.D The ruling spirit, Charles, you see, So full of life and energy. Still farther from the setting sun Your footsteps bend-your task near done. Here, where the floor is gleaming white, And where the walls are dazzling bright A Switzer, like a seer of old, Draws forth the secrets long untold By molecule or atom bold. Fridays, in number twenty-nine, Where Seniors meet to work and pine, They learn from Gilbert wisdom's rules, And how to manage longed-for schools. And here, where books are stored away Like "savings for a rainy day," Miss Warwick, with a smiling face, Looks up each record, Ends each place. Meanwhile the critics 'mong the grades Flit to and fro like phantom shades. The babes are Mrs. McMurry's care, Mr. Hatch guards those who climb the stair Miss Donohue those who dwell on high And look below with kindly eye. And Dr. McMurry guides and cheers From early morn till sunset nears. V! KW fc, M, ,ag iz. H . xc .,,, , . Q ' " W" S-....,l.

It faithfully portrays "what we do" and shows the fun, labor and results of school life. I11 merit it surpasses tl1e Norfhfrr of IQYI, which is the highest praise that can be given it. june I5 was a memorable day in the history of the N. I. S. N. S. At the east entrance to the building a statue of "Dr.l' Shoop was unveiled with appropri- ate ceremonies. On the same day tl1e famous painting, "Our Guardian Angels," was unveiled in the President's reception room. For these works of art we are in- debted to Misses Hoaglin and Stratford, who have acted upon the advice of the juniors of IQOI. The school greatly ap- preciates the generosity of these ladies. Our campus will hardly be recognized by the Alumni, A landscape gardner, with a force of two hundred skilled work- men, has made it "a thing of beauty and a joy forever." Beautiful driveways, lakes, flower beds and fountains make it an earthly paradise. Concrete walks have replaced the treacherous planks and a bridge of artistic workmanship spans tl1e Kishwaukee. The authorities acted wisely in allowing the works of nature to remain. How could the hand of man improve our phoebe singing among their branches? In the spring the graceful willows will still adorn our tributary and the bees will flit from catkin to catkin. Again the black- birds will build their nests among the rushes on the banks of the lake. ALUMNI Eva Grace Lee has recently been ap- pointed Captain of tl1e Salvation Army at Triumph, Ill. Richard De Young, the great American tenor, is making a tour of Europe. The success of his entertainments is in part due to his beautiful and fascinating ac- companist, Miss Mae Foster. This is from the Sterling Standard: "The leading actors in the famous Buffalo Bill show, which exhibited here last even- ing, were former students of a near-by college, Givens, the great athlete, and Bennett, the clown. It is rumored that Bennett is the owner of a large ranch and when not with the show rides bronchos in the far west. " The following have paid their tuition at the Normal and have entered upon more lucrative occupations : Helen MacMillan, snake charmer, Lou Baker, bicycle per- former, Edith Watson, tight-rope walker, Roy Poust, bell ringer for restaurant, Birdie Ferris, country music teacher, Nellie Myers, missionary, Rose Hatch, hospital nurse, L. NV. Ragland, stump speaker, Eugene Phillips, traveling tooth extractor, Helen Hamm, matron of a club. Mr. a11d Mrs Charles will occupy it about june IS. The class of 1902 has with the consent of Dr. Cook, dispensed with tl1e usual six class day speakers and will enjoy an ad- dress from President McKinley. The Boys' Basket Ball team won a glorious victory at the I. S. N. U., June 2. The score was I2 to 1 in favor of our team The following books have lately been received and will soon be placed upon the shelves: Influence of Love Upon a Teacher, Kemler, Opinions of a Cynic, Cornell, Howto Become an Artist, Hugett, Notes W'ritten by Our Faculty During General Exercises, Hoaglin, History of Nature Study Club, Baker, Value of Facial Contortions, I.

It was a beautiful SERS day in early autumn. The mid-day sun casts his cheering rays on the little sailboats, darting to and fro, and kisses the tips of the masts on the grand old ships, lying in the breeze, gently rock- ing themselves to sleep on the bosom of the water. Far toward the east stretches the beech ' C Wood, the leaves tinted with the hues of autumn, and the sunlight playing hide-and-seek among ,Eggs the wood-covered hills for which Germany is so celebrated. For an observer the harbor scene is perhaps one of the most interesting spectacles. All con- ditions of life are here represented, from the aristocrat down to the organ grinder and street beggar. Here the dusky follower of Mohammed and the sons of the celestial empire stand side by side. The sturdy Teuton and the light hearted Celt forget their ancient feuds and exchange greetings of good fellowship. Yonder to the right and left lie magnihcent merchantrnen, displaying their colors. To the careless observer this may have no signin- cance, but the thoughtful mind reads in the Hag the symbols and principles of the nation. In the Union Jack, the Stars and Stripes, and the Tricolor of France, floating in the breeze, we behold the history of the people. The crafts, laden with merchandise, resting in the harbor, suggest to us the industry and ingenuity of the nations which they represent. We think of the world as a great workshop, the means of exchange regulated by international laws, which only civilization and Christianity make possible. But "time and tide wait for no man." Our meditations are suddenly interrupted by the roaring of the steampipe. The passengers have collected near the shore. The crowd increases every moment. The steampipe roars again and the bell rings. At this signal there is fervent hand-shaking and numerous benedictions, then a rush for the gangway, a second and a third bell. A few distracted passengers reach the deck less than a minute before the gangway is withdrawn. The last robe is cast off, hats and handlcerchiefs wave, the final adieu is said, and the vessel steams out of the harbor. SENA NELSON. If ii li -Q? XNx HELP I HELP ! 123 RESCUED.

It wailed down the chimney fe, k like some lost waif seeking the warmth of the fireside within. The shaded lamp left the room j O in a luxurious light and the corners in shadow. Before the fireplace sat Irene in a little wicker chair, with a screen placed near to ward off the intense heat. She was thinking, thinking G intensely, of a sad, touchingstory she had heard that day about a little girl, only twelve years " old, whose father had died the day before, leaving his little daughter alone in this great, wide world, homeless, penniless, parentless. His last words to her before he closed his tired eyes in death were, " Somewhere in this great, wide world God will ind a home for my darlingf' "Somewhere ! " All day the words had been ringing in Irenels ears. As she sat there in her beautiful, luxurious home with everything heart could wish for, she began to think, as many an older head has done, that somehow this world was very unevenly balanced. She thought and thought. Suddenly her face brightened. jumping up, she ran quickly out of the room and up the broad stairway. Bursting in upon her father in his study, she began in an incoherent way to tell the whole story. H? and oh papa! couldn't we do something?" "VVhy, my dear child, what could we do?" asked that surprised man. And therewith Irene proceeded to relate the scheme she had concocted by the fireside. " She could come and live here and learn to help Mrs. Ray and go to school with Elsie and-why, do lots of things. Do say she can come, papa," pleaded Irene. " Well, well-h'm! well-a-I don't know child-I don't know. It seems such a wild scheme.. But I don't knowf' said the poor, bewildered man. "Oh papa, just think if it were me now l " " Dear, dear, if it were you? Why, what put that into your head? It couldn't be you, you know." She put it in such hard light that he could scarcely refuse, and - well, why should he refuse, why should he, to be sure? f'Why, I don't see why we couldn't do it, Irene. She wouldn't be in our way, and it would be a real charity, " and he began to enter into the wild scheme as enthusi- astically as Irene. Next day a pretty little basket carriage drove up in front of poor, honest Mrs. Murphy's door, where Marian, the little orphan, had been staying. In the interview which followed little Marian was made to under- stand that she was to go and live in a pretty rural home, and go to school. And motherly Mrs. Murphy, with many a tear, called down all the " blissin's " of the saints upon the good " gintlemin " and his pretty daughter. And so the little orphan found a happy home safe from the buffets of the cold-hearted world. God had found a home for the dying rnanis darling. 126 .wah Glue JBee HERE's a belted bee in the orchid's cup, He's taking his tithe from his tenantry, And never a care in the world knows he, Wise bee I He peeps from the blossom, gilded o'er ' With precious dust of the stamens' store, And never a thought in the world has he Of the errand he's on for his tenantry. But the golden dust of the stamens' store He leaves at each orchid's open door. A part of the flowers' plan is he, As he takes his tithes of his tenantry. We children of men, we come and go, At somebody's hest,-how should we know Being only the children of men,- Whence we come or whither we go? But to some one of us, now and again, A vision may come in the sunshine. Then He shall see himself as a part of a Plan, He has helped in the weaving since Life began The shuttle is hidden, he knows not where, But he shall know the shuttle is there, Moved by some unseen, immanent Hand,- He shall seek no more, but understand. And the cares all die that Pride gave birth, He turns with a large thought to earth. The vision hath had its ministry, And he smiles to himself as he sees the bee,- The velvet bee in the orchid's cup Taking his tithe of his tenantry, While never a care in the world knows he, Wise bee! A. C. G.

Flow on, gentle streamlet, as years come and go, Decked now in green verdure and now clad in snow. Thy praise will be chanted in measures more sweet, I And others stray 'round thee with loitering feetg But when time shall claim thee and put thee to rest Thou'lt know in thy heart that the old love was best. And tho' thy old lovers far distant may be, In memory they'll hear thee and share in thy glee. In memory they'll see thee and feel a sweet thrill, XVhen sunlight is dancing on woodland and rill.

Tell Mr. Spier that your time is li111ited and that you cannot pos- sibly write oftener than twice a week. I think he will be considerate. ABBIE JEAN-Your heart matters, I should judge, are seriously mixed. Your acquaint- ia' ance with a young man before you con- sider yourself engaged should extend at least a year. Do not put too much faith in the promises of young 111en attending school, for they often say rash things under the influence of moonlight.

DAILEY-NO, I would not try to make up between them. If anything, go with her yourself. ATKINSON-SOII16tl'1lIlg about your letter convinces me that you are stylish already. From what you say of yourself I think your appearance would be greatly improved if you wore a rat. J.

I,if3..x1'HA-I11 getting a new hat it is always advisable to ask in the neighbors to see how it looks. A LEW S.-Public opinion decides such things, and it is gener- ally agreed that you are handsome. TEDDY-I would not advise your getting a corduroy suit for summer. ELSIE F.-As to the size of the gentlemen with whom you ought to appear in public, it is a momentous question. I have come to the conclusion that you will not attract so much attention if you go with a man of your own size. Picture yourself with Rev. Murra. PAUL-I should suggest that you do your hair up on kids. Do it up the night before and it will stay better. NIAUDIE-I cannot furnish the desired recipe for your complex- ion, but the Grammar Grade teachers say they have collected the chalk dust from the board and applied it with great ben- efnt. ' ELIZABETH L.-Your green jacket will cut nicely into an Eton for the spring. By way of suggestion, it might be Wise to put in a Battenburg yolk and velvet sleeves. But by no means use purple velvet.

You know, "Absence makes the heart grow fonderf' LENVIS WASHINGTON R.-No, I do not think it adds any force to your speech to point your index finger at the audience. GEO. S. G.-Yes, it is the proper thing to make a date at least twenty-four hours ahead. You cannot expect your lady friend to accept on five minutes' notice, for she may have other plans. POLLY-If you had explained your case more fully, I could have answered your anxious letter more satisfactorilyg but I think from the facts of the case, that it would be better for you,- being engaged as you say,-not to encourage the attentions of young men while you are away at school. It sometimes leads to serious consequences. You had better consult your mother on that point.

ANTICIPATION REALIZATION 1RefIections of a lamp llbost -Xgd, 123529 f OR many years I lived very happily in a large forest with my brothers and sisters. We loved the Niifx -154' beautiful Howers at our feet and the birds that gave grand concerts in our branches. You cannot imagine how lonely I felt when one day I was cut down, robbed of all my beautiful branches, and transformed into a post. For a long time I lay alone and neglected, but one day a man came and took me away with him. I was again filled with hope, curiosity and expectancy. I soon found myself on the campus with a brilliant light upon my head. Since then I have been very happy. Merry troops of children hurry by me every day on their way to school. As the Normal students go by I hear many things, in fact, I can almost tell what the proceedings are at the Normal school. I know when it is examination day, when there is to be a ball game, who the " cutest girl in town " is, when one of the young ladies has changed one of her shoes and forgotten to change the other, and many other strange things. I love to hear the enlightened talk of the Seniors and then I laugh to myself when I think how the Juniors will roast them class night. I even know what takes place at faculty meeting, for every Tuesday night I hear many able discussions. In the midst of such beautiful surroundingsand among so many kind friends I am very happy and contented. I trust that I may fulfil my mission by keeping my face bright to direct the pilgrims in the right path as they wend their way to the shrine, even though there be dark and threatening clouds above, and narrow, slippery walks below. --pigvv STELLA HENNINGS. . Kolb by the llbiano i G d'f'f'5-I My friends are all very talented-there isn't one who doesn't possess remarkable musical ability. They come to see me every night. One whom they call Edna usually comes first-a pensive maiden, she who always plays hymns. I do not know why, they say she is a minister's daughter, perhaps that has something to do with it. While she is playing, the rest come up. There is always a clamor for Bertha and May, you all know them. When they are absolutely worn out, Rene comes to the rescue. Rene always sings " Sweet Bunch of Daisies." But her performance is an Egyptian mystery to me. Why can't we ever keep together on " Darling, I Love You?" And why do they all laugh so? It is very strange. Next I hear, " Jessica, play your piece now," and I am always glad, for jessica plays sweet, dreamy waltzes and then they all dance. It is a pretty sight, and I am happy then. Joe plays for them to dance, too. Joe knows several pieces, but she knows " Dorothy " best. Mr. Lloyd's piece is " I'll be all Smiles Tonight, Love." Brother Lloyd pretends that he dislikes it and is very reluctant about singing it, but I will tell you as a secret that he is really very fond of it-if you don't believe me, just hear him sing it once. Every night I hear "Come on, Dick, we're ready for 'Ben Hur' now." Then I begin to brace myself and to shrink up into my corner, for when Dick comes, he comes with one of his kangaroo leaps from the opposite side of the room to the piano stool, and it isn't always on the stool alone that he lands. But he doesn't mean to hurt me, I know-it is just a way he has. So I grind out " Ben Hur " for him cheerfully. Chas. and Julia are about upon an equality. So far as either vocal or instrumental music is concerned, their ability is unsurpassed. The one thing which we appreciate in them above all is, that they are always ready and willing to perform. Then there is-but here comes May, which means that I must get down to business. MAE FOSTER. Z4 -ff, l .sf-if Ei.-ffl" 25" N the banks of calm lil5llNY2llllit'lf Looms the " eity on the hill," And a story I will tell you, If you'll listen and be still. On a bright December morning, In the year of nineteen one, Somethinghappened that might scare you Though it ended just in fun. To the attic on that morning Shoop and Powell both did go To perform a certain duty- XYhat it was I do not know. Now they brought a great long ladder, To the ceiling it was raised, And the men did upward clamber, Not a moment were they dazed. Through the cubby-hole they hurried, Cares and troubles all have fled, XVork is done, now down they've started, Shoop, all smiling, goes ahead. Through the opening he's swinging, An d is reaching for the round, But his feet upset the ladder, And 'tis fallen to the ground. Dreadful sight he 11ow presented, Oh, the trouble now in store! In the air he hangs suspended, Far from ceiling to the floor. 135 " Ilelpl oh llelpl " the ery resolllnlefl 'llhrongh the building, l':n' :ind nt-ar, And the ealni and peaceful inmates Suddenly are struck with fear. " Help! oh help! " again it sounded, Striking terror, oh so dire, And the frightened childrenfstuflents This time understood it,f1'c'.' There was tumult in the Normal, As the inmates rushed about, Snatehing hats and books and papers, Struggling wildly to get out. Not one moment did they falter Till they're safe outside the door, Then with every eye uplifted Watch they for the angry roar. But the peaceful Normal mansion Towers upward to the skies, Not one trace of burning building Comes before their frightened eyes. As they stand there upward gazing, Each is ordered to his seat, And our janitor is busy, For he's now upon his feet. He is sadder now and wiser, And he never more will tire As he warns folks to be cautious Ere they break and run forfire. RoSE H.-XTCH Spartacus to the Glabiatorst !IDoberni5eb E 4 N tl T .aa fq?,g.:':-3 slew arm f raw., is X' . fs' , f',g,'1f A. E call me coach, and ye do well to call him coach who for two years has met with you upon the gridiron every shape of team the broad expanse of Northern Illinois could furnish, and who never yet gave anyone the "straight arm." If there be any who can say that ever in scrimmage or in play around end my actions did belie my tongue, let him stand forth and say it. If there be six of all your team dare face me in psychology or football tactics let them come on. And yet I was not always thus,-a professor of pedagogy and a trainer of pigskin kickers. My ancestors came from the Empire State and settled among the corntlelds of Egypt. My early life ran quietly as the brooks by which I sported, and when at noon I gathered the sheep beneath the shade, and made fiddles out of cornstalks, there was a friend, the son of a deacon, to join me in the pastime. One evening after the chores were done and we were seated beneath the morning glories, which shaded our home, my grandsire, an old man, was telling of Yale and Harvard, and how from year to year a team from each of these colleges met to settle the question of supremacy on the gridiron. I did not then know what football was, but my combativeness grew, I know not why, and I clasped the knees of that venerable man until my mother bade me go to rest and think no more of those savage contests. But that very night I resolved to go to Harvard. Several seasons later, while playing in a game, I met upon the gridiron an opponent whom I knocked out in the first kick-off. When I removed his nose-guard, behold ! he was my friend, the deaconls son. He knew me, smiled faintly, and gasped for " time out," the same smile upon his lips that I had marked when, in adventurous boyhood, we scaled our neighbor's fence to pluck the first ripe apples and bear them away in boyish triumph. I told tl1e referee that this fellow had been a friend of mine, true and generous, and I begged that he withdraw from the game and a substitute take his place. The umpire finally forced back the crowd and sternly said : " Play ball." And so, fellow gladiators, must you and so must I continue to buck the line. O, Harvard ! Harvard ! thou hast been a tender nurse to me. Thou hast given to that gentle, timid minister's lad, who never knew a harsher tone than a Iew's-harp, muscles of iron and a heart of Hint g taught him to make tandem plays on tackle, masses on center, revolving wedges right and left, quarter-back passes, and criss-crosses galore. Ye stand like giants as ye are. The strength of brass is in your toughened sinewsg but next fall some college or athletic association, breathing out challenges, will attempt to mar your fair record by sending false reports to the Chicago dailies. Hark I hear ye yon Dixon College roaring in his den I 'Tis six months since he defeated a would-be N. I. S. N. S. football team 3 but next fall ye shall break your fast upon him-and a dainty meal for you he will make ! If ye are basswood, stand on the gridiron like ten pins and let your opponents buck your line for fifteen yards. If ye are men, follow your interference. Strike down yon guard, gain the ball and do bloody work as you did at Sandwich. Is the spirit of victory dead within you? Are the colors of the N. I. S. N. S. ever to trail in the mud? Fellows, we must defend the honor of our noble institution. If some must be vanquished, let them be our opponents.

Future Normalites will find it very valuable. 1 J In history and literature: Debate the question. " Browse " in the library and take a N kindly interest in all the references Mr. Page gives. Recite vigorously for the Hrst two weeks IN and you will be excused from reciting for the remainder of the term. Look Wise and ask questions to keep him talking. 2 J KN In geography : Don't argue any technical point on the cause of the tides. Speak of the city in tones of reverence. Intimate that Nature's roses are the sweetest that bloom. In psychology: Laugh at all of Mr. Keith's jokes, no matter how old they are or how often he has told them. Preserve your composure during the spasrnodic contortions of his face. Differ in opinion to keep the class awake and use up time if you haven't your lesson. Get excited and denounce Mr. james as overthrowing the foundations of belief. In arithmetic: Be exact. Don't get inverted. Know "of what." Don't get excited when he tries to punch a hole through the blackboard with a piece of chalk. Be a songster. In biology: Manifest an affectionate regard for His Highness, the snake. Specialize in biology. Have perfect lessons. Get up at 4:30 and start off on an excursion with no thought of breakfast, try to appear happy and near to Nature,s heart. Have at your tongue's end the following: The sporophyte is a parasite on the gameto- phyte bryophyte, parthenogenesis, differentiation, dimorphism, oxyhemoglobin, alternation of generations, " omne vivum ex vivo," and symbiotic parasitic fungi. If you want a grade of Ioo be able to define a gazizeiavzgzaffz. In Rosenkranz: Recite word for word " Dear old Rosy." Always have good lessons. Don't talk in the hall or slide down in your seat.

XV. E. XVING. our FOR CUBA 159 Tbaish library , I N the absence of a museum in the school many of the students have called upon the library to IFA QT serve them in that capacity, if we may judge by the nature of the questions which come to it 1 Q almost daily. In all libraries odd mistakes and blunders are frequent, and often very amusing, 0 J! is though the librarian must never show by a single look that anything unusual has been asked. Gllf She should be as wise as a sphinx in order to know what is wanted when a " cantaloup " of the library is requested, or when a small boy asks for "The Dream of Sir John Longfellow, by Lowell "5 another for Shakespearefs Tale," or " If You Get It Keep It," when the book desired is "To Have and To Hold." She must be a living encyclopedia to answer i such questions as z " Who wrote 'A Heated Mode of Motion ?' " " Where can I find a picture of an Indian sitting in a doorway ? " " Do bees make honey to eat it? " "Are there any encyclopedias in the library Pa' " What book will help me on our debate: 'Resolved, that the moon was full when the cow jumped over it'?" "Do more far- mers' wives become insane than city women ? " One cannot but wonder what the aver- age life of a librarian is I Surely, not a great many years. But these are only some of the funny happenings, and there isno end to the seri- ous, valuable side of the library, with its eight thousand carefully selected standard books and periodicals. It forms a firm foundation for all the work done in the school, and the appreciation of its worth is shown by the number of students who take advan- l .E tage of the opportunities given them. Some were so eager for knowledge that during the winter afternoons they stayed until it was necessary for them to go through the alcoves with a lantern, Diogenes-like. The names of Coulter, Mead, Channing, Harte, James and many others whose books have been so eagerly sought, will not soon be forgotten. There have been books for every need and mood, and the Haish Library might easily adapt the following little song to its own use : ff Are you in Sentimental lnood? But if patriotic sentiment is wanted, yu Sigh with you 3 I've patriotic ballads cut and dried: On ,U12lldCU,S C01d11eSS do YOU brood ?

Tlirongli niannzil training the child is brought face to face with and led to solve many of the problems that will confront hini in later life. 'fhose who planned this building showed their wisdom in setting apart :i portion ol' it for this work. If those who hold its future destiny in their hands show equal wisdom in their planning their names will not be forgotten. Many of the boys and girls in the practice school have enjoyed the work in the shop during the past year. Much freedom has been allowed pupils in the selection of work. As a result, each pupil has taken much interest in his work, because there has been a strong motive back of it. Those who have worked have been independ- ent, thev have done their own thinking, they have done their own work, each has attended to his own business. Stated briefly, the work has been along four lines. Things have been made for the shop, for the school, for their parents and other members of the family, and for the pupils themselves. The following tools, costing less than 11215, were purchased: A rip saw, three cross-cut Saws, two large planes, four small block planes, three try squares, a brace, several bits, a countersink, a spoke shave, an oil stone. two chisels, three hammers, a hand ax, a pair of dividers, three knives, two gauges, a nail-set, a cold-chisel, a pair of pliers, a screw- driver, and three bench screws for the vises. The material used has cost about 31230. The shop is a well-lighted room, 40 feet square. When work was begun last October, there was nothing in this room but an old bench, and much rubbish. The nrst thing to do was to clean it up. After this was done two long benches were made Of course this took considerable planning 011 the part of the boys to get them of the right height and to make them strong. Then a cupboard was made for the tools, and shelves for the work. The boys found that it was not convenient sawing boards with- out saw-horses, so saw horses were made. A well seasoned apple limb furnished two good mallets The boys concluded, that a workshop was 11ot complete without a nail-box. Two were made. The following articles were made for the school: Pointers, a small box for Dr. Cool-:'s desk, Several sets of shelves, a table, a dictionary stand, a tray for carrying apparatus from room to room, a clock face for the fourth grade arithmetic class, a piece of apparatus to be used in teaching the thermometer, a cord of wood, a canal lock, a lumber camp by the creek on the campus, picture frames, a cage for a hawk, screens to darken the win- dows in order to use the stereopticon, a wheel for the squirrels, a bulletin board for Dr. McMurry, Several things for Mr. Charles' workin biology, corner shelves, and Several pieces of apparatus have been mended. Pupils have made, for themselves allfl their homes, tables, knife and fork boxes, a bread box, a frame for plants to climb upon, rabbit traps, bent-rim work, tooth-brush holders, pen racks, tool chests, a case for type, and sleds. ui- Che llbrimarig Eepartment S in all the other departments of our Training School, the chief aim in the Primary School is to minister to thefeli wanfs of the children. A keen desire to know the facts which are to be presented will insure their assimilation and lessen the waste in education. Our desire tofeed hzuzgzjf children controls largely the selection of the material and the method of presenting the lessons. In the first three grades good classical stories are told to the chil- dren, which they are led to reproduce in good language. In the first grade selections are my QM, made from fairy tales, fables, and jane Andrews' "Seven Little Sistersf' In the second ify grade, f'Robinson Crusoe" and 'fHiawatha', are studied. In the third grade Greek Myths, the Story of Siegfried, and Norse Legends are presented. In all the grades biographies of Lincoln, Washington, some of the poets, and a few of the painters are given. The children become some- what acquainted also with the Pilgrim fathers and the pioneers of our country. In Nature Study the children become familiar with the birds, flowers, trees, and butterflies which are common in DeKalb. They study their habits especially. Many questions arise, which they answer later from their own observations, e. g.: In what ways does the robin move about when upon the ground? In the air? What birds sing or call upon the wing? What does each of the varieties of birds studied eat? Where and how does each get its food? Where does each build its nest? Of what is the nest of each made? How made ?. Of the plants the children discover by their own observation, answers to such questions as the following : Where do the plants grow? How do they appear when first coming up? When do they flower? What is the color, size and shape of the flower? How does each plant protect its buds? What kind of seed vessel has each? How are the seeds scattered? The children watch the development of the buds of the trees until their fruit is ripened, sown, and seedlings raised. They learn by the observation of caterpillars, chrysalides, butterflies and eggs, the stages in the life of these insects- The Beginning Reading is taught through games which the children play by following, at first, spoken directions. Later the written direction is substituted for the oral. So far as possible interesting literature, which is really worth the expense of the child's time and energy, is chosen for reading material. The writing and spelling are taught as the child feels the need of expressing himself in writing, e. g., the picture which he makes of a hoop looks like the picture of a moon. To distinguish it from the moon he labels it hoop. Each day one child has an opportunity to be leader of his class. The teacher has been in the habit of giving, in writing, directions, such as stand, sz'!, marfk. The child wishes to do the same, so he sets about learn- ing to write them with a will. Later he wishes to record the questions which he is to answer from observation. The children will also write letters to children in the other schools telling them of a day in the woods, a snow- storm, or other interesting experiences. They will also write to children in other climates, telling them of some of the products of their clime. The Drawing and Modeling are largely connected with the Literature and Nature Study, basing them on the former, the children represent what they have imaged as the story was told to them, basing them on the latter, the pupils draw or model the bird, twig, flower, etc., as nearly as possible as they see it. 1 A xf'. X f Tgxgffi D 162 L . ,M ,W M, F, A ,, i CBrammar School .gzgp-113553 .3537 HE grammar department consists of three roon1s, two of which, averaging forty pupils each, are made up of seventh and eighth grades. These rooms are each in charge of two Seniors, one A teaching half a day. The other room is in charge of Miss Reno, a paid teacher of experience. .... ,W In this room, with an attendance averaging about seventy, are four classes also representing seventh and eighth grades. y r The special problem which we have been endeavoring to solve this year is that of self-gov- ernment. Knowledge is important for the child, but there is something vastly more important. The power to wrestle with and decide the little questions of his every-day life, the power to grapple with the conflicts of life as he meets them, the power to take hold of and exercise control over himself-this is the power, the gaining of which is the problem before the child. How to help him gain it is the problem before the teacher. Knowledge- getting, as we ordinarily think of it, is simply a means toward this end to be gained by the pupil. There are a thousand little things in his every-day life which, if recognized and properly handled by the teacher, are the stepping stones to the acquiring of this power by our boy or girl. We do the pupil a great wrong when we exercise too close supervision over him. He must have opportunity to test himself. If he is constantly con- trolled by the teacher he certainly grows weak along this line. Let the boy do something for himself. As well might we expect a child to grow physically strong who is constantly carried by the nurse as to expect a boy or girl to grow morally strong who is constantly guarded by the watchful eye of the teacher. If we would ,treat our boys and girls more as young men and young women-treat them with the same courtesy and respect that we would their fathers and mothers, were they here, we should, I am confident, be rewarded by the growth in them of the spirit we so long to see developed. It is the hold he gets of himself, and not the hold we get of him, that strengthens his character. Why does Miss Scott think that the Scotts are noted for size? Why do they call Miss Donohue " Shortie "? lYho knows better than SAK how strong Mr. Mofet is? XVhy does Mr. l'orcheur stand on his toes? Miss lloxonrif treading Lady of the Lakej-Who is the dmke?

You know one is influenced in so many different ways by his surroundings that it is nearly impossible for him to be at all times what he would like to be. I I Did you ever hear about the time we thought the building was on tire? It makes us laugh 11oW when we think of it, but then many of the girls cried. It happened in this way: Mr. Powell, the engineer, had climbed into the tower through a trap-door in the ceiling of one of the ante-rooms of the east Society Hall to put in some electric light wires. Mr. Shoop, our watchful janitor, was anxious to see that everything was done properly. He climbed to the top of a tall step-ladder to watch the work as it progressed. While in this position he tried to adjust the ladder with his feet. In doing so it fell over, leaving him suspended from the trap-door by his hands. He would not let Mr. Powell pull him up. He was afraid to drop to the floor. There was nothing for him to do but to cry for help. This he did. We took his cry for help to be a cry of fire. Mr. Cornell, who was teaching in Room 28, quietly QD announced to those in the library that the building was on fire. When this announcement was given we all ran for our lives. Several of us , were sure that we saw smoke coming out of the windows. We finally learned what was the matter and went back to our rooms. VVe hope that next time we may have better control of ourselves. What do we do? We do about the same as other boys and girls of our age do. We go on Held trips to study plants and animals. We watch the clouds, the wind, and the weather. We study the soil beneath our feet. We try ex- periments. Sometimes we go to the shop to work out our ideas. We take part in critique lessons. We sing, read, write, spell, solve prob- lems in arithmetic, study geography and history, and write compositions about what we have studied. In the autumn we play football, and in the spring we get out on the diamond and show people that we know something about the game of baseball. In short, all people may not be aware of the fact, but the fact remains, however, that we are an important part of the prac- tice school. Did you ever stop to think what the practice school would be without us? ' UNTER DEN LINDEN. STUDYING THE CRAB-APPLE TREE. 165 EZQQIS YOU may be surprised to see a space devoted to this depart- ment, since it is not a custom of annuals. That alone is suhicient reason for our action, for we are not bound by custom and do not wish to remain in the ruts of others. But there is a much better reason,-we have something we want to say. 4 4 4 THIS school year has S6611 a great advance in the devel- opment of school spirit, which is the greatest charm of our Normal. It pervades the entire school from the tiny tot in the practice school to the renowned Senior whose memories of the N. I. S. N. S. will ever be fond ones. It is this spirit that has made us long to reach our ideal, and by steady, faithful work is leading us onward to attain it. Have we not always heeded the watchword, " Stand By? " This firm loyalty to our trust has bee11 instilled into our hearts until it has become a part of our very being. Not only has its influence for good helped us, but it is felt by every one with whom we come in contact. Our lives will be fuller and richer, while the world will be made brighter and better because of our work here. When we look back-to the opening of this school and see the forward stride it has taken, we are led to exclaim, " Normal, thy name is progress! Bright is the future that lies before you." Oh co11tinne, seat of learning, In the work thou hast begun, Greater laurels still be earning, Till thy Master says, " Well done X" 4 4 4 FOR the artistic appearance of this book we'are 1I1LlCll in- debted to our artists. All the work has been done by our own students, who, though hard pressed by arduous school duties, gladly did what they could to make this volume attractive. lVe wish to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation to all, but especially to Jessie M. Dunning, who designed the coverg to Hattie Hugett, Elizabeth Patten, Stella jordan, Mrs. Philbrook, Lillian Wagner, Ethel Reiterman, Emma Anderson and Ethel Brainard. , 4 3, THE Senior Class, at a class meeting, May 23, extended a special vote of thanks to Fred L. Charles, business manager of the NORTHER. Whatever of merit there may be in this work is due in no small degree to his able management and his valued advice and assistance. For a school of about two hundred stu- dents to publish this annual, costing not far from one thousand dollars, required unusual skill and careful management on the part of thelbusiness manager. Though a member of the faculty and having important personal interests, he gladly gave us much of his tlllle and energy, with no other reward than that of the gratitude and highest appreciation of the Class of 1901. 4 4 4' , THE interest manifested in the NORTHER by the faculty, the students and all our friends has been unusual, and has made our efforts to produce a literary and artistic souvenir real pleasures. XVe thank the students for their liberal financial support, and we are proud of the record that not one of them refused to do what he could to assist us all in other ways. Special acknowledgment is due Mr. Switzer, who took many of the photographs, to Miss Stratford for her timely criticism of our art work, to Mr. Fay, editor of the De Kalb Review, who kindly loaned us photographs and cuts from his valuable col- lections, and to Mr. Rowley, to whom we are indebted for the artistic arrangement of some of our pages of views. A 3 4 4 4 As we look over this year of 1991, one of its prominent features is its athletics. Last year we thought the spirit shown was admirable, but this year it has been far surpassed. As soon as school opened, active preparations were made for football. The old players, combined with the new ones, made that grid- iron of ours a spot that a few, at least, will long remember. The Thanksgiving victory put the boys in a thanksgiving mood as they tenderly laid aside their leather head gear and padded trousers and prepared to convert their football energy into basketball. The " gym." became the bone of contention as each team strove to get in the most practice. " In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of-l' baseball and track meets. Taking the year as a whole we have cause to be proud. lVhen we consider that thirty-five boys must play football, baseball, basketball and work on the track, we can but wonder that victory came to us as often as it did.
