Have you been to Annie's Woods
In the spring, in the spring?
Where the turf is soft and green,
And the sun glints through the screen
Of the trees?
And the violets hidden low
Blossom sweet,-Oh donlt you know
'Tis the fairest place to go
In the spring?
Have you been to Annie's Woods
In the spring, in the spring?
VVhere the birds sing clear and sweet,
And the river at your feet
And that little maid,-Ah me!-
Never mind-but don't you see
'Tis the nicest thing could be
In the spring?

jobn ID. Cook
RESIDENT JQHN NVILLISTON CCJUK was born in Oneida county,
New York, April 2o, 1844. Vkfhen he was but seven years of age his parents
removed to McLean county, Illinois, and located at what is called Oneida
Crossing, about nine miles northeast of Normal. In the spring of '53 the
family moved to the little village of Kappa. Here the remaining years of his
boyhood and youth were spent, much as were those of other boys of the village
-attending school during the winter, working on a farm, assisting his father
Cwho was the agent of the railway companyl, or clerking in a store in the sum-
mer. In 1862 Mr. Cook entered the Illinois State Normal L'niversitv, at Normal.
as a student. After graduating, in 1865. he was employed for one year as prin-
cipal of schools at Brimheld, Peoria county, Illinois. He was called the next
year to the principalship of the village grammar school,which had just been estaba
lished in Normal and which was under the supervision of the Normal faculty and
was taught chiefiy by Normal students. This position he held until 1868, when
he was appointed to supply the place of Dr. I-Iewett for one year, in the chair
of History and Geography in the Normal School. tin Dr. Hewett's return to
his work in the fall of '69 Prof. Cook was placed in charge of the work in Read-
ing, which he conducted until his appointment to the chair of Mathematics and
Physics in 1876. This position he held until his promotion, in l8QO, to the presi-
dency of the institution. lior nine years he served as chief executive of that grand
old school, leaving it only at the urgent solicitation of the promoters of the new
enterprise, which resulted in the opening, in the fall of 1899, of the Northern
Illinois State Normal School, with Ilr. fook as its president, which position he
A glance at this hrief summary will reveal the striking wav in which circum-
stances have combined to develop and round out a character which seemed des-
tined to take a high position in the educational world. llr. foiili has penetrated
the mysteries of the log school-house and the village schoolg he has served his
term as teacher ot the village school, lie has devoted special attention, at various
times, to almost every lmranch of study include-l in the puhlic school course: he has
threaded the mazes of tl1e executive part ol the educiitional problem, a11d has
grasped with a never-wavering hand the reins of control. .Xnd not only this, llr.
Cook has figured actively i11 the husiness world, as a tiirnier, as an editor, and
in various capacities. lt is not surprising that his sympathy is far-reitcliing Zlllll
his eye keen to detect the needs and olmserve the interests ul' people of whatever
station or occupation. llis efforts are ln' no means conllned to the schoolroom,
hut extend to business and prolessionztl interests, keeping him constantly in touch
with other lines of thought and of action. He is, perhaps, as widely and as
favorably known through his lectures as through any other line of his work.
Dr. Cook is. first of all, an untiring worker. He longs to be in the thick of
the battle. Three years ago he was called upon to decide between the old field
and the new. The pressure brought to bear by the authorities and other friends
at Normal was heavy: the ties of a lifetime bound him' to the people and the
scenes there: but still he said, "l must be where there is the most work," and
since the new institution at De Kalb seemed to him to offer a field of greater labor
he made the decision which placed him at the head of the Northern Illinois State
Normal School. And truly, this prophecy has been fulfilled. The organizing
of a new institution has proved no small task. The new wheels must be watched
at every turn, while the old ones know better how to move. But the new school
opened most auspiciously. The three years of its life have been years of continu-
ous, steady growth in power and efficiency, as well as in members. The unifying
power of the president and his rare executive ability are in constant evidence.
His patience with details makes his infiuence pervade every line of the school's
activity, bringing him also into close personal relations with each student. It
would be difficult to say which are enjoyed inore-the hours spent with him in
the class-room or those spent with himself and Mrs. Cook in their most homelike
The Fates have been kind to the Northern Illinois State Normal School, but
there have been periods of no little solicitude. The days of anxious watching
for reports from President Cooks sick chamber, the weeks of waiting for his
decision concerning certain tempting and flattering offers from another educa-
tional institution-these have cast their shadow: but the shadow has passed, and
a loyal. happy school is united in wishing for Dr. Cook long years of continued
activity, and may they all be spent within the walls of the N. I. S. S.

Ct' Cibctt with the Engineer
NE day I managed to get lost in the northern contines of the Normal
building, and I thought surely I had wandered into the engine room of
some well-ordered factory, so bewildered was I by all the machinery.
Yet I had never seen so neat and clean a room with machinery in it-I could
almost see my reflection in the mosaic Floor. As I stood there rubbering texcuse
me, I'm only a freshmanj a nice-looking man came in and remarked, "Lost,
Freshman F" I don't see why they call us fresh 111011, neither word is appro-
priate. "Wliat's that ?" I asked, ignoring his question. "That's the dynamo:
it's direct-coupled, you see." "Yes, certainlyg I thought it was. Does it make
the engine go F" "Not exactly," he said, with a smile he thought I didn't seeg
"the engine makes the dynamo go." "Uh, yes. VVhy does it make the dynamo
go ?', "The dynamo makes electricity to run the fans and the electric lights
all over the building." "Qh! does it? I tried to count the lights in the audi-
torium at society last week while Davie Mad was spouting, but I fell asleep.
I-Iow many are there P" "Five hundred in the auditorium, and three hundred
other sixteen-candle power lamps in the rest of the buildingg but in the gymna-
sium there are four six-hundred candle power arc lamps." "Yes: isn't it fine
in the gym? You can see everything. Wfhy, I visited a normal school once
Where the gymnasium was lighted by bottled moonlight: you had to keep your
hands out in front of you when you walked to keep from bumping into the posts.
And I counted the lights in their auditorium-there were just thirty of them.
They said they were thirty-two-candle power, but I thought they didn't look
very bright. What are the fans you spoke about? I haven't seen any electric
fans anywhere, and I've been here a whole term." "Oh, they are down in the
fan pitsg they are operated by electric motors, and they supply fresh air to all
the rooms, The system is a very fine one, for by it each room gets its due share
of ventilation, regardless of the direction of the wind. This is the only system
that can do this, and since the air is carried into the fans through a set of steam-
heating coils and discharged through another set which may be used in part or
as a whole, the air can be tem-pered to any desired degree of temperature. The
system is all right, but some of the air ducts are too small for the requirements.
and on this account the fans ought to have a greater speed." "How interesting!
I wish they'd hx them, for some of the recitation rooms do get pretty stuffy.
Wliat are those jerky little engines for ?" "Those are the steam pumps. One
of them supplies the boilers with water and the other pumps the water needed
throughout the building. The deep-well pump is out in the boiler room: that
raises the water to an open tank, and these take it from there and deliver it
under the necessary pressure." "Are those big things out there the boilers F"
"Yes, they are eighty-tive-horsepcmwer boilers, and they have the smoke-burning
furnaces. They supply thesteam for the engine and pumps, besides, they fur-
nish steam for all the radiators." "l always thought steam radiators made such
a noise: why don't ours ?" ullecause they are fitted with thermostatic valves
which permit the condensed steam to be pumped back to the boilers but not the
steam itself. The valves are automatic, and as the system works under vacuum
conditions and no water can remain in the radiators, they are always noiselessf'
"'O1h, dear, do you suppose l can understand all that when l've had llhvsics?
There's the bell, and I must go. l've had a lovely time, and have learned a
whole lot, and l'll try to remember it. How do l get back to the auditorium?"

New Stuoenfs Drogrcss from the Slough of Bgno:
rance to the Sono of Q5Iorg, Delivereo unoer
the Similituoe of a broom
S I walked through the wilderness of this world I lighted on a
certain place where were many Barbsg and I laid me down in
that place to sleep, and as I slept I dreamed a dream. I
Y dreamed, and behold, I saw a man standing in a certain place,
a book in his hand, and a great burden upon his back. And
z , he did open the book and read therein. And as he read his
gaze became more and more fixed, and his head bent lower,
as though he would fain devour it within himself. I drew
near and looked and saw these words: Northern Illinois State Normal
School, 1899. I saw, too, that, as he read, he began to wring his hands
piteously and to look about him until at last he cried out lamentably, "Will
no one help me P"
just then he saw coming toward him a man called the Great Cook, who asked,
"VVherefore do you cry out so sorrowfully?"
And he answered, "lt is written in my Hook here that there are shining rolls
to be given to those possessed of such burdens as l have who can rid themselves
of them, and these shining' rolls will admit them into kingdoms of everlasting
fame and glory."
Then said the Great Cook, "For many years now have l helped men rid them-
selves of just such burdens as yours. lint my time to help you has not yet come.
G0 ye, therefore, to yon large structure, which you see newly built upon a hill
and there you will be told how to acquire that which you seek."
Now l saw in my dream that, as New-Student, for that was his name, pro-
ceeded upon his way, he met a companion called Fellow-Student, to whom he
did reveal the wonderful things spoken of in his llook, and whom he did per-
suade to accompany him.
They therefore proceeded upon their journey and presently came to a foul-
looking stream called the liishwankee, and hy reason of each having his eyes
fastened upon the shining edifice beyond, they did fall into the foul thing. Now
liellow-Student struggled valiantly and at last reached the bank, Init New-Sttn
dent, by reason of the great burden upon his back, sank lower and lower and
lower, and must surely have been overcome, but that a resident named Switzer
gave him a friendly hand and helped him ont. New-Student then wanted the
stream obliterated for sake of those who came after, but the resident said, "No,
yon shining ediiice had its origin in this stream, and did we obliterate it, we should
but destroy the history of its foundation."
New-Student walked along in a sad plight, for his burden was not only
heavy, but possessed of a most foul odor, because of his recent adventure. Now
I saw in my dream that at this moment the Great Cook came forth to meet him,
and gently chiding him for falling into the stream told him to hurry on to where
he would meet a man who would receive him. "But," he added cautiously, "cast
aside all uncleanliness before presenting yourself for admission: for this man
has good will only for those who leave no tracks."
So in the process of time New-Student got to the door, and there came to
meet him a man. a man of keen and care-worn look, towel in hand, who eyed him
curiously and then said, "VVhat bringest thou here?"
"N ' 'I Now, I saw in my dream that in the presence of this
' 5 I man, this man of keen and care-worn look, New-Student
AUP Huh ll'-,,MAJ:biLl trembled more than when in the presence of the mighty
XX Cook himself, so he meekly replied, "I have been di-
t rected here by the Great Cook that I may be relieved of
Y .qi this burden upon my back, and with your permission I
I P,-Q' I ,Sl shall enter."
' gif, l t'Then," said the other, "thou must bring nothing
' i here from the outside," and with that he set before him
If .- .1 five scrapers and seven rugs, and said, "Clean thyself."
X ,, VVhen this he had done he rubbed him over with the
: towel he carried and said, "Go thy way,"
Now I saw that, as New-Student proceeded upon his
f 2 IJ way, he trembled, for the path before him was narrow.
7 and upon either side of it were dark-visaged men with
long-handled weapons in hand wherewith they crushed
great stones, and he felt that with the weight of the bur-
PMUISA Il den upon him he, too, must fall down before them and
I be likewise crushed. But luckily he saw the door of a
Parson open and quickly bent his steps to enter.
And as he entered therein the Parson looked up at him and asked. "XVhat
doest thou here, New-Student?" To this he replied, "I have been directed here
by the Great Cook who did say that here I should find a man who would relieve
me of this grievous burden."
To this the I'arson replied, "The only help there is for men who come in here
is to get out again." And with that he closed the door and calling' to some fierce
dogs that were slumbering near, he said, "Get thee upon him."
And there came to my ears a great roaring and barking and snarling and
snapping, until it seemed to me that New-Student must surely be devoured. But
as I drew near I saw that he dealt bravely with them, for already dead were two
most wicked ones called Stocks and Bonds. and Divisibility of Numbers, while
he was then battling with a smaller, but more fierce foe called Theorems.
Now I saw in my dream that when New-Student made his escape he again
began to cry out lamentably for someone to help rid him of his burden, and that
the Great Cook came to him and said, "I will direct you now to one who is very
wise and can surely help you, for he has a knowledge of everything that has
happened since the world began, and can prophesy what will happen from now
until the end of time." And he directed him to a place where sat a verv grave-
looking man, poring over a large book, which book I did see was filled with Dates
and References. And as New-Student begged of this grave man to relieve him.
he did place before him the mighty book, and pointing with a linger to either
Page said, "Learn,"
Now, for many days did New-Student battle with Dates and References,
until he felt that his brain must be lined with them. At last the trial was ended,
and his burden, though somewhat lighter, still bore down heavily upon him and
he again began to cast about him for help, and called to one who was near, who
said, "Do you see yon high hill?"
"Very well," said New-Student.
"Then," said the other, "thither you must go, for there dwells one by name
of Keith, who has great skill to help men oif with such burdens as thine, so much
doth he know of the machinery of the m-ind."
So thither did New-Student go. But when I looked I saw that when he
came to the gate he forgot for a moment the great load upon his back, at sight
of the strange distortions of this man's face. And when New-Student asked
him for help he made a great grimace and said, "I can not myself take from thy
back thy burden, but will give to thee a key to a box called Mind which thou
wilt find filled with helps to thee. Moreover, I will 'give to thee this cane called
Will which thou mayest use when diliiculties surround thee." And with that each
went his way.
Then did New-Student grow more glad and he stood still awhile to think
and to ponder, when lo, he beheld great multitudes pass hy him and go in a certain
direction. And he, too, turned his feet thither and went in the same direction
until he came to a place where were large glass doors. And upon each of these
he saw thereon the finger-prints of the multitudes who had entered. And as l
looked l saw that New-Student, too, wishing to be immortalized, paused here
and laid his linger-tips upon the glass and then passed on. And when he had
passed beyond the portals of this place he found there his old friend, the tlreat
Cook, dealing out words of wisdom. .Xnd there fell upon his ears these words:
"Stand hy. llold your tongues," and divers other things. .Xt this New-Student's
heart grew sad. since he had strength only to hold the great hurden upon his
back. lflut notwithstanding this he thanked the tireat Cook for his advice and
And as he passed out he felt his load grow lighter and he hastened upon his
way to find someone who would relieve him of it altogether. But he had not
traveled far when he began to listen and to search for strange cries which he
heard. And as he listened he found that they came from a place called Music
Room and were the voices of those who had entered there and must learn to sing
ar-r-r before they could get out. Now I saw in my dream that when New-Student
entered, the doors closed behind him, but just as they swung upon their hinges
he hung his head out the window, sung ar-r-r, and made his escape.
I saw then that he grew weary and would fain lie down to rest. And as he
looked ahead he saw before him a great field of Rice and gladly he made his way
thither. And as he was hurrying along as best he could, for his burden was still
heavy, he became caught in a net called Geometry which was made of many
lines, and which bound him! so fast that he was unable to move. In this sad plight
he remained for many days until he bethought him of the cane called Will that
had been given him, and with that he began to slash to the right and to the left
of him and was soon free. Now, as soon as he had gained his freedom he again
ventured toward the Held of Rice and soon entered it. Now I saw as I looked
that what had seemed to him so fair in the distance was full of terrible pitfalls
and dreadful caverns that extended clear to the center of the earth. I saw further,
that between each of these caverns were monstrous whirlpools that threatened
to swallow him did he but move. And his feet became tangled among the stalks
of Rice and he did fall to earth and cry aloud for help.
Now, after great toil, he passed through this terrible ordeal and was yet more
weary than ever and began to cry anew for relief. And the Great Cook came
to him again and said, "Do you see yon castle to the right of you?"
"Right well, I do," replied New-Student.
"Very well, then," replied the other, "go thou therefore and present thyself at
the door thereof and there will come to meet thee the giant Charles, who is of
very great size and has strength to help thee off with thy burdenf'
Then did New-Student gird up his loins and prepare him-self for his journey.
And he went on until he came to the door of the castle where he knocked
over and over. At last there came to meet him the giant, who began to roar at
him and to ask him why he came. Then did New-Student tell him of the weary
years that he had traveled and of the relief which he sought, the which after
he had heard, the giant thundered forth, "Get thee before me," and with that he
drove him into a very grewsome looking place called Biological Laboratory.
where lived species of every living thing that had existence since the creation, and
pointing with a monstrous linger to each, he said, "Make patterns thereof."
Now, when New-Student heard this, he grew very miserable, for in all his
pilgrimage he had not met with a hardship like this. And, moreover, he began
to tremble and grow afraid, for there surrounded him snapping, hopping and
crawling things that opened their slimy jaws and glared at him with fiery eyes
until he felt that he would be crazed in his wits. But then did he bethink him of
the C3116 which he carried, and beating back each living thing he linally escaped.
Now, it did so happen that when he escaped his burden was lighter than
ever and his heart was glad, for, separated from him only by a river, was the Land
of Glorv which he sought.
Now, the name of this river was Rosenkranz, and as I looked I saw the
Great Cook standing upon the farther side beckoning to the multitudes who
gathered upon the brink to cross. And as I looked I saw pilgrims who had been
upon the road from one to three years. And each did stand upon the edge and
ask, "Is there no other way to cross ?" while still the hand of the mighty Cook
did beckon to them to come. Then did each plunge himself into the river, New-
Student with the throng.
Now, as I looked, I saw that the water was much deeper than it had appeared
to be and New-Student began to sink. Then did his heart grow heavy and sink
within him, for he felt that surely he must be lost. Moreover, he felt, too, as
he neared the bottom the bones of those who had perished here. And then a great
horror and darkness fell upon him and he lost his senses, the which he had
recovered he heard the Great Cook shouting to him, "Memorize, memorize!"
And he did take his advice and found himself rising until he came near to the
stone of Self-Estrangement upon which he did crawl, when lo, his burden did
drop from him altogether and fall thereon and he was free.
'lhen did the mighty Cook take him by the hand, and present to him the
shining roll which he had sought for so long, and bade him pass on into the Land
of Glory. And there walked by his side lifty or sixty others who had also been
pilgrims, and his face shone with a great joy, and he was very glad.
So I awoke, and behold, it was a dream! ANNA J. ti.xRRi'1'Y.

N ITS early days the windmill looked down upon the broad fields where covvs
were peacefully grazing. With the creaking of its sails were mingled the
quacking of ducks and the gobbling of turkeys. At night, it heard the gentle
lowing of the cows waiting for the hired man to come in, tired and dusty, from
the fields of corn. Later, people gathered around it at the county fair and
crowded against each other in their efforts to get a drink of its cool water. The
cries of fakirs came to it, mingled with the calls of the peanut boy, the squealing
of pigs, and the bleating of sheep. Many a time it saw a hard finish in a 2:40
trot, or perhaps three or four running horses laboriously trying to keep from
fiying off the track into the Kishwaukee. After a time interest in these things
died out. Then, from distant parts of the country, came "VVeary NVillies" to
lounge contentedly under the trees during long, lazy summer afternoons. How-
ever, they cared little for the old windmill and scorned its clear water for some-
thing vvith more snap to it.
And why should they have thought of it? Its paint was gone and it looked
bleak and weather-beaten. Many a small boy had shown his venturesonie spirit
by climbing to the tower and cutting his name in its fan. Wfhether so many
boys had cut their names on it that they had whittled it quite away, or whether
it just naturally fell to pieces, one cannot tell: at any rate, soon after the tram-ps
had deserted it, the windmill lost its fan. llut even then it was not entirely for-
gotten. Groups of boys and girls began to pass by it daily on their way up to
a new building that had grown up on the hill. They were a rollicking set, full
of the effervescence that bubbles over in good will towards everyone. and in
their good nature they made the old windmill one of their friends. indeed, they
once invited it to a football celebration, but for some reason they failed to cele-
brate and the windmill was left out in the cold.
All winter long, it shivered forlorn. llut one day, there seemed to be some-
thing unusual about to happen. Groups of students walked about it all day long
and talked in mysterious whispers. liven the faculty walked by with knowing
smiles on their faces. XVhen night came, a crowd of excited people went up to the
great building on the hill. Nobody noticed' the old windmill, not even a freshman
came to it with pencil in hand to tell of its appearance in beautiful prose. lt grew
lonely and disconsolate and longed for the days of the county fair and for the
"VVandering VVillies." lint all of a sudden, a shout went up from the great build-
ing, and then a band of boys rushed down the hill toward the windmill. Une
came with a great can and soaked the gray framework in oil. Then tongues of
flames began to crawl up the'time-worn beams. Students and townsfolk gathered
laround and gave cheer after cheer in Indian fashion for Mofet and for the
N. l. S. N. S. At last the old windmill fell with a crash: the Haines leaped high
once more and gradually died down. The crowd became smaller and smaller
till only a few boys remained to shoot the cannon crackers. liinally, a farewell
cracker, the largest of them all, was shot off. and the boys lingered a moment
on the bridge to watch all that remained of the old windmill, floating in strands
of light blue smoke over the river and meadows. .Nt last it had celebrated.

LLIQQ Qkatorical Ciontest
S MINFRVA of old sprang full-grown from the head of love, so the Ora-
torical Association sprang full-grown from this Young love of Northern
Toward the close of the fall term an invitation came from the "old Normal"
to this school asking it to unite in a State Qratorical Association. The invitation
was accepted, a constitution was drawn up, a local organization was effected and
orators were chosen by the association. A few weeks later these orators appeared
before a committee of the Faculty and John VViltse, James Frederick, Mildred
Adams and NN. R. Mofet were chosen to appear in public contest on the evening
of March 15. Wihen the eventful day arrived De Kalb, true to its traditions.
furnished the usual down-pour, but at eventide there was a glory in the western
sky, and by eight o'clock the rain was over. The program was pronounced the
most artistic that the school had yet given. Every number was a credit to the
school. XV. R. Mofet took first place and the generous prize of one hundred
dollars, offered by Colonel l. L. Fllwood. james Frederick took second place
and the prize of fifty dollars, offered by Dr. Cook.
After this preliminary contest. attention at once focused upon an event
arranged for April 2-the state oratorical contest. Since none of the other Nor-
mal schools of the state entered the association, the field was left for the "old
Normal" at Bloomington and the new Normal School at De Kalb. April 2
arrived as days have a way of doing, and with it came Kliss Gay, the orator from
Normal, and a delegation numbering fourteen. The preliminary contest had been
a family affair-brother against brother in friendly rivalry, but this contest was
to be school against school in friendly rivalry. School spirit began to grow.
school colors appeared in corridors and class-rooms, but school yells did not,
like the music of Qrpheus, draw rocks and trees after them. The school became
a unit-an organization with one dominant purpose. Miss Gays "Knight Ideal
of American Politics" met Mr. Mofets "Knight ldeal of Truth," and was defeated
in fair fight. A rush for the stage-school yells, wild enthusiasm followed, an
event that marked an epoch in our school's history.
The second contest won, our "hero victorious." with twelve staunch allies
started out for new worlds to conquer and found them in the combined eloquence
of Iowa. llfisconsin, Missouri and Kansas on the evening of May 8, in the year
1902, at Emporia, Kansas.
This great event, the Inter-State Normal Oratorical Contest, had brought
together the noisiest, jolliest, most enthusiastic body of students ever congregated
on such an occasionf Picture to yourself an auditorium fashioned like an opera
house with raised floor, wide sweeping gallery, boxes, stage, drop curtain and
all, with every chair occupied and every available foot of standing room taken.
and you have the setting for the Inter-State contest. "A sea of faces, billows of
color, and waves of enthusiasm!" exclaimed an eye-witness.
By eight o'clock "Albert Taylor I-Iall"was packed and for one-half hour good
natured pandemonium reigned supreme. Iowa was there with her forty Minne-
singers who kept the house resounding to their musical
Boom! Boom! De Aye!
Boom! Boom! De Aye!
Missouri answered with her
Normal, Normal, number two!
VVarrensburg in old Missoul
and the rest of it was drowned by the deep-voiced
Roria! Roria! Roh! Roh! Ren!
Roria! Roria! Roh! K, N
of the Iayhawkers-a thousand strong. The "lucky thirteen" of Illinois, though
outnumbered, would not be outvoiced and made themselves heard with their
Rip! Ray! Roy!
Since VVisconsin had but three to yell, the other schools helped her out with
Ole Qlsonl Johnnie Johnson!
Finally, when fifteen hundred people had yelled themselves to a pitch of
enthusiasm, verging on delirium, and sung all the school songs that fertile brains
could devise, the presiding ofheer, L. XV. liurdick, called the house to order. The
audience, led by the orchestra, sang 'H-Xmerica," Prof. Hill gave the invocation
and the "battle of the giants" was on. ,lames NVoodford, the Kansas representa-
tive, spoke first. Vifhen he stepped forward, instead of the usual handclapping,
a thousand white handkerchiefs moved in Chautauqua salute. lly this time the
tide of expectation and enthusiasm had reached such a pitch that one wondered
if it could go higher. lXlr. Xlfoodford spoke on "American Diplomacy," with an
ease and directness that won his audience. The judges gave him second place.
Then came our lllinois orator with his oration on "Peter .Xbelard." l'erfect
diction, invincible logic, and an original and philosophical treatment of his subject
together with faultless delivery and that indelinable something that holds an
audience as by a spell, gave him first place and never were honors more fairly
won. Nr. Mofet won three of the eight hrsts given.
After a selection by the Klinnesingers, li. NV. Vogel spoke on "Savonarola,"
and was given fourth place. Miss Charlotte IJ. Ray, of t Jshkosh, XYisconsin, made
a strong plea for 'iSl1ylock," and was given third place. Miss Norma Norman
closed the program with an oration on "The Supremacy of .Xmerican Commerce."
Then came an agonizing wait of nearly an hour while the grade sheet was being
made up. ,Xt last the president appeared with the decision and stated that he
would read the ranks beginning with the last. Missouri was announced, but we
knew we were not near that end of the line: "Iowa," and we leaned forward to
hear: "VVisconsin," and we began to breathe hard: "liansas"-but we did not
wait to hear the first name on the list. The Illinois delegation made the stage at
a single bound. Xlfhat happened there must have been seen to be appreciated.
' Mr. hlofet has won for the N. l. S. N. S. the greatest victory that has come

N THE far-off, ancestral past there was a time when man was
something less than man,-a time when he roved carelessly over
the earth and shared the joys of beasts. One great day across his
brutish brain there flashed a ray of light. ln all time's calendar
riors are the sons of men and whose battle-field is the human
heart. On that day were born two spirits that are the great leaders
I A A A - 1 A - 1 4 -
theie is no gi andei moment, tot then began a strife whose war-
of this warfare. lloth are honest and sincereg yet only by their
never-ceasing conflict does the world move onward.
One spirit is conservative and clings with blind, unswerving loyalty to all the
past. It lives to-day in our great institutions and through them men serve that
past. It makes us love old songs and old ways of doing things, and there is no
nation or land that has not known it. lt lived in the palmy days of Greece and
gave to Socrates the cup of hemlock. It nerved the arm of Brutus when he drove
his dagger home. It wove a crown of thorns and raised a cross on Calvary's hill.
lt brought fear to the heart of Galileo and words of retraction to his lips. It sat
in judgment on the witches of Salem and condemned them to death. lt has been
the conservator of civilization and has laid the foundations of society wide and
deepg but in so doing, it has filled the years with anguish and the hearts of men
with bitter pain. For at some time in every aspiring life, a younger, fairer spirit
calls in high, clear tones. lt is the voice of the Future and when it calls, men
forget the legends of the past, to find within themselves a fever that no art can
Peter heard the call on the shore of Galilee and leaving his fisher's nets,
followed through doubt and denial, to die at last as died his master. It called
to Columbus and he crossed an unknown sea, winning for Spain unbounded
wealth, only to die alone in poverty and chains. lt called to John Bro-wn and
he left his plow standing in the furrows of peaceful tields, to meet a shameful
death at Harpers Ferry. Such are the men the Future calls: such the reward
she gives them. But poverty and pain and disgrace, all that progress has cost,
sink into oblivion in the great crises of history. NYith that touch of the divine
which has shot Htful gleams of glory through the darkness of the past, man gives
to the future that greatest of all gifts, himself. Nine centuries ago, the spirit
of the Future called to Peter Abelard, a thoughtful student on the hills of Brit-
tany. He answered, and the echoes of that answer, lingering in every footfall
in the march of progress, are borne abroad on every wind of freedom.

ln the year eight hundred, Charlemagne had completed a world empire under
whose protection the Holy Roman Church had perfected a marvelous organiza-
tion. Charlemagne died and his kingdom was divided, but the Church, preserving
throughout her realm a complete unity, in one short century had assumed enor-
mous proportions. She had complete spiritual control of civilized Europe, and
one by one, political privileges were passing into her hands. Henry TV., the
proudest monarch of Europe, had humbled himself before her power. Witli a
philosophy that sustained the dogmas of her creed and justified every demand
of her ambition, and an empire greater than that of Charlemagne or Alexander,
she seemed destined to dominate the civilized world. Sustained by no force of
arms or art of reason, but by the reverence and love of a million human hearts,
she stood undisturbed while Europe was filled with unrest. The Normans cross-
ing the channel, had defeated Harold at Hastings, and Wlilliam I. reigned over
the unruly Saxons. Saracens, Huns and Magyars were pressing in upon the
'frontiers of Europe. The hardy Northmen, guided by wind and star, were
sailing stormy seas and catching glimpses of unknown lands. The Crusaders,-
the very flower of Christian chivalry-moved by the fiery words of Peter the
Hermit, were seeking to recover the Holy Sepulchre. This brief page of the
world's history typifies the resistless march of progress. Slowly but steadily
the boundaries of learning were advancing. Strange new knowledge was pouring
in upon Christendom. In Spain and in the far East, men were gazing with
admiration upon a civilization greater than the boasted one of Christian Europe.
In every direction, discovery and exploration were affording new opportunities
for development, unlimited power and knowledge were awaiting man's directing
hand. It is a crisis in the world's history. Shall this power and knowledge do
naught but fetter men and bind them closer to the past, or shall it strike off every
chain, leaving men free in mind and heart with a glad vision of those infinite
fields of thought and action, which are their eternal heritage? The dominant
power of Europe is the Holy Roman Empire. She is a perfect embodiment of
the past, asking of the human mind but one thing, acceptance of her dogmas.
Productive thought and invention are rendered impossible by every law of her
existence. The moment is tragic. tireater than king or kingdom she stands,
Waiting to place the seal of silence on all the future. If she triumph, then close
the book of history with its grandest names unwritten and its most glorious
achievements unrecorded. 'lfhere in the world's arena stands the lloly Roman
Empire, the mtightiest antagonist of the century: the gage of battle has been
thrown and all Europe awaits the encounter. Single-handed, with no criterion
but truth, having no plea but justice, no motive but love, .l.'eter Abelard, all uncon-
scious of his great mission, stands reverently before the world pleading for the
millions yet unborn.
Abelard, the son of noble parents, renounced his birth-right and became a
wandering scholar, sitting at the 'feet of the greatest teachers ul- his time. Ile
rejected authority, declared the right of every man to think for himself, and
became the most famous philosopher of the Middle Ages. Soon the tide of events
moved his restless mind and he left the barren field of logic where he had won
his great renown, for the untried realm of theology. But no act of will, could
change the process of his thought. Before he had used reason to shatter the
fallacies of philosophy, now its iron hand was laid upon his own heart. One
by one, it shattered the ties that bound him to the past. Witli bitter, unavailing
grief, the sweetest memories of his life were surrendered at its command.
Abelard had a message to deliver that no other could tell. To this mission
he sacrificed that which men hold dearest,-his hope of home and love, and then,
having severed every tie that bound him to the past, he turned back, alone, to
face the world. He told men everywhere that they should think for themselvesg
he demanded that men should be judged by their motives, not by their deeds, he
told the common people to read the Scriptures, that years of scholarship were not
needed to understand what God would have them do, that truth did not belong
to a certain few, but to all. At last rumors of his teachings reached Pope Greg-
ory VH., a man of untiring zeal. The moment demanded actiong and with that
terrible energy which precipitated Europe into two decades of strife, Gregory
turned the power of the Church against Abelard. He was charged with heresy
and compelled to burn the book he had written. Twice he was obliged to Hee
for his life and twice he was condemned by an ecclesiastical council. At last,
worn out with years of warfare, he started to Rome to make a personal appeal to
the Pope. Cn the way he was stricken with a fatal illness and died in a friendly
monastery, no less a martyr to the cause of Truth than those who perished by the
rack and stake. Such was Peter Abelard, whose heart was filled with dreams
of the future, whose body was crushed by the wheels of the past, but whose deeds
are written on the pages of history.
In the land of his birth, the loving hearts of a great nation have raised to his
memory a noble monument. To France belong his birthplace and his tomb:
more than this she cannot claim. His deeds and thoughts now boast a larger
ownership, whose right she is too generous to question. Learning cannot claim
Abelard, though he was the most inspiring teacher of the dark ages, and to-day
the greatest university of the world honors him as its founder. Philosophy can-
not claim him, though he served her in her greatest need, when the lamp of Reason
Hickered low and Tradition darkened every outlook of the soul. Religion cannot
claim him, though to-day enlightened Christendom holds among its central doc-
trines the very truths for which he pleaded and for which he suffered, and his
heresy, long since forgotten, is now a universal dogma.
But there is a greater than these whose claim cannot be doubted or denied.
From that quiet home in Brittany to the rude monastery on the road to Rome,
there walked with Abelard one who has lived since the dawn of history, one to
whom pain and persecution were neither strange nor fearful. She knelt with him
in the narrow cell of St. Denys when, as a simple monk, he fought his Hrst great
battle. She lived with him as a hermit in the wilderness at Nogent, speaking
through him to eager throngs of scholars. In the Synod of Soissons, surrounded
by monk and abbot, she stood with Abelard as he burned the book into which he
had put the great effort of his life. But the book was hers, not Abelard's, and
neither the power of man nor the wasting touch of time could dim-its burning
message. Twenty years after, she heard him tried for heresy before the council
of Sens, when his accusers little knew that the cause they tried that day was the
sacred cause of Freedom. She was his companion in the long days of confinement
at Clunyg but last and most loving service, she stood beside him in the narrow
cell, giving to his dying eyes one glimpse of the future, showing the world-worn
warrior that the cause he loved still lived and could not die. For she who lived
with Abelard was Truth and then, as now, she stood secure and invincible, fearing
no attack. All the logic in the world cannot make a false thing true or a wrong
thing right, for Truth is greater than deed or doer and moves on in majesty.
The record of her progress is written in the lives of men. The pages are wet
with tears and stained with blood. Un one page stands the name of Peter Abelard.
Neither the darkness of the Middle Ages nor the long centuries that followed can
hide it from our gaze for it is the name of one who loved Truth and gave his life
to her service.
France may lose her proud eminence among nations: the towers of her great
university may crumble and fade in the dust of time, Learning may Hee to fairer
fields and win greater triumphs: l'hilosophy may solve the great problems of
existence, and the restless sea of thought may mold the religions of the world
into strange new forms. Ilut Truth will live, eternal and unchanging, and because
she lives, touching with fadeless youth and beauty all that she calls her own,
Earth will still cherish among her rarest treasures the memory of l'eter Abelardi

Che 'Qfhirowlnterbocietg Contest
HERE seems to be something in human nature that responds to the idea of
contest. Classic writers found a fruitful theme in combats like those
between the Greek Achilles and the Trojan Hector, so splendidly matched
in daring and valorg mediaeval writers delighted to tell of joust and tournament.
of knightly prowess, of gallant feats of arms: our modern writers find inspiration
in the same theme. In all this literature the tales that are immortal are those
that portray a noble and generous rivalry, and we like to read how Roland, Charle-
magne's bravest paladin, sincerely mourned the death of his Saracen foe, and
how the bold Roderick Dhu was thrilled with admiration for his enemy, the
dauntless Fitz James.
Many of the elements that have characterized contests in all ages combined
to make our contest an event of unusual significance. Our beautiful auditorium
was gay with waving banners and bright with the radiance of happy faces as
friendly greetings and good wishes were freely interchanged. The annual con-
test furnishes, perhaps, the strongest rallying-point of the year, and one of its
chief pleasures, and a source of inspiration as well, is the presence of so many
of the alumni, loyal and enthusiastic as ever. As an introduction to the brogram
the Normal Chorus sang two selections, each in such perfect harmony as to put
the audience in a happy frame of mind. Then the battle was on-debate, essay,
recitation, oration, vocal and instrumental music. ,liach society knew that its
contestants had worked faithfully and would represent it worthily. As the various
numbers were presented it became evident that the judges had no easy task, so
closely were the contestants matched as a whole. liach, without exception, dem-
onstrated that it is good to toil earnestly and to bend one's efforts untiringly
toward intellectual achievements. Not all could hope to win the coveted mark
from the judgesg not one went really unrewarded, for each was in a large sense
a gainer. The decision of the judges showed that the lillwoods had tipped the
balance by one point only, a result that brought them-a triumphant throng- to
pay tribute to the victors, but their songs of victory were drowned by the yells
and the songs of the undaunted tiliddens. XYhen these demonstrations'had
lulled a bit, Dr. Cook, on behalf of the faculty, presented to the Ellwoods a bronze
statue of Perseus, a trophy to be kept by the winning society until such time as
the opposing society shall demand it by right of conquest.
The judges of music were Mrs. l'. S. Hulbert, Oak l'ark1 Mrs. XV. I. llam-
mil, De Kalbg john L. Cook, Chicago. The judges of the literary numbers were
H. L. lioltwood, livanstong john C. lslanna, Oak l'ark1 jl. M. lfrost, lslinsdale.

HERES a school just out of town
Near a strenuous barb-wire cityg
Wfhere the Kishwaukee, deep and dark,
Flows along, past Campus Park,
Never deigning to carry a bark.
But, when begins my ditty,
Only six bright moons ago,
To hear the students talking so,
Of a contest, was a pity.
They sounded loud, and sounded long,
They sounded high and low,
They scared the citizens out of their hats.
Each gave the other friendly pats,
And laughed and cried, and then, alack,
The Ellwoods yelled at the Gliddens,
The Gliddens answered them back.
They even spoiled the faculty's chats,
By drowning their speaking,
VVith yelling and shrieking,
In fifty different sharps and Hats.
At last the people in a body,
To the lighted hall came Hocking:
" 'Tis clear," cried some, "the Ellwoods will win.
And as for the judges-shocking,
If they can't decide so little a thing!"
But then said the others with voices mocking,
"Do the Ellwoods think they can do as they please?
And win the whole thing with perfect ease?
just wait, they'll find they're something lacking,
And sure as fate, we'll send the packing
Along with their 'Shipping Subsidy Bill' "
Wlieii silence reigned,
The President explained,
The evening would open with song.
Then the chorus leader arose
And stood in silent repose,
Wliile the singers all did climb
To the stage and stand sublime,
As sweet music forth' did chime,
From their open throats the time.
When the singing was all done,
Then was the debate begun.
As the leader came before,
No one could enough admire,
The pleasant man in quiet attire.
Quoth a Glidden, " 'Tis as Lincoln,
Starting up at the sound of doom.
And come this way from his marble tomb."
"Honorable ludgesf, said he, "I am able,
By means of an authorized fable,
To compel all creatures, without lash or whip,
To Wish and vote for a subsidized ship.
I chieliy use my charm,
Un persons that do people harm,
By trying to discourage our foreign trade.
And who really are afraid,
To give a few cents for the good of the land.
We have only contempt for such a band:
They think that we need no ships,
Merchant marines, fishing and war vessels, too,
Yet, simple man that l am,
l can easily see that we do."
"The Gliddens have got it!" was the exclamation.
"For this is truthful presentation."
Unto the stage the negative stept,
Smiling first a little smile,
As if he knew what power slept,
ln his giant form the while.
Pre through two minutes the speaker could blunder,
You heard a noise as of startled thunderi
The muttering grew to a grumbling,
The grumbling grew to a mighty rumbling,
Then out of his mouth the words eame tumbling,
Great words, small words, long words, short words
Shrill words, still words, good words, bad words.
lleep, sound mutters, gay, light shutters,
Expressive, impressive, deeisive, explosive,
'Phrases and elauses bv tens and bv dozens.
From point to point he went 'thout wineing,
From ear to ear thev erept eonvineing.
You should have heard the lillwood people,
.Xpplauding and cheering till they rocked the steeple
"l'V21it," Cried the filiddens, uweive got ZllltJlfl'lL'l'
Can speak, T guess, as good as his brother.
Co for them affirmative,
Put up a bluff,
lVe've faith in you and xve'll get the stud,"
Qf the Ellwood's argument he left not a trace
Of evidence. Said some, urflTCV'1'C out of the race."
But another Ellwood came on the stage,
She spread out at length her manuscript page,
Wfith, "First, if you please, my opponents are wrong,
Their evidence, surely, is not worth a song,"
And proceeded to show it. The Gliddens looked blue,
For she used strong argument, they saw that was true.
Her colleague arose with a knowing' wink,
And dazzled our brains till we only could blink.
Said the Gliddens, "NVait till the Ellwoods sink
Wfhen they hear the last speech, one that we think
Wfill give to thenil a disturbing' vision,
And give to us the iinal decision."
Thus was the debating done.
But this wasn't all the fun:
NVQ- heard music and declamations,
Essays. too, and then orations.
No one could his feeling smother,
Ellwood, Glidden, Glidden, Ifllwood,
Wlhich was better than the other,
'Twas exceedingly hard to know.
Then, at last, came the judges' decision.
The audience listened, with dreadful tension,
XVith eager faces and bated breath:
And when all was still as the very death,
"Three points," we heard, "for the Gliddens,
And four there are for the Ellwoodsf'
Hurrah! Hurrah, for the Ellwoods.
Alas! Alas, for the Gliddens.

Gfbe Cinnual junior Drogram
N JUNE, IQOI, we, the present august and distinguished Seniors taliases,
Thesis Writers, Best Teachers on Earth, Consumm-ate Interpreters of Dram-
atic Art, etc., etc., ad libitum, ad nauseamj were led astray. We were led
into giving a real live program talias, a four-ringed circusj. The audience of
nine hundred of the most distinguished people of De Kalb was pleased, although
it must be noted that the audience didn't have half as much fun as we, the then
We arrived and were welcomed by Dr. Cook, who, for our especial benefit,
wore a "red cravatf' Somehow or other our baggage finally reached the Ellwood
Addition, and we were ready for business. The faculty condescended to entertain
us for awhile in Dr. Cook's absence. The "notices', were conventional and stereo-
typed, so also, were the talks on the "Libary" and "Harvard," The singing of
that world-renowned glee, entitled "Forsaken," under the leadership of our great-
on-high-holds, time-keeping-with-feet teacher of math. was duly appreciated.
The "Critique Lesson" was up to standard. Some members of the faculty
tailed to get the point of the lesson-due perhaps to their habitual absence from
the conventional and recurrent perform-ances given under this title in the Lecture
Room. The students, however, who are subject to certain immutable regulations
regarding attendance, were so impressed with the life-like reality of the per-
formance that they, from sheer force of habit, wrote up the lesson in the back of
their plan-books and received credit for it from the critic teachers.
The "Ambitious" in their performance were most certainly "Up Against the
Real Thing." "One of Our Conquerorsn deserves especial mention for the
ingenuity manifested in discovering things to ask the "Doctor" about. XVe regret
to say, however, that this year, according tothe clerk, a lady member of the faculty
has quite discounted in variety and persistence the activity which we have just
commended so highly. And it is to be noted that the hilarity of the song and
chorus following the dialogues was designed to express the opposite of the feeling
that usually follows such interviews.
Then, too, the Senior Class was noticed to a Certain limited extent. The
Seniors had planned to go to Malta on a hay-rack, but when they learned that it
would cost them fifteen cents apiece for the ride, and live cents each for soda-
water at Malta, they wisely decided to pay ten cents for a "junior Roast." And
they got it. We had private stenographic reports of the personal applications
for positions made by some of the Seniors, and these were faithfully reproduced.
Also, by the merest chance. a copy of the long-metered Class llynin fell into our
hands, and we sang it before the Seniors had a chance to do so. This is why
the Seniors 'fave no Class Sono' at their "rendering" of one of Sliakespeares
plays the following night. Also Cthe secret may be safely told nowj, through the
carelessness of the "Theme Collector," we were able to present some of the very
essays which the committee had selected for Commencement Day.
A few of the "American Beauties" of the Class gave a most charming 'lRose
Fetef' which might have been called a beautiful dance, were it not for the fact
that the Trustees do not permit dancing in the building. The President of the
Board of Trustees enjoyed the Fete very much, as did we allg and we are hoping
that when, as "distinguished grads," we return occasionally to our alma rmafcr,
we shall find the junior Classes enjoying the privilege of dancing in the gym-
nasium, for we cannot believe that it is just to deny the right to dance to students
of a school at whose dedication the President, Faculty, Trustees, and even the
Governor of the State of Illinois danced. VVe refuse to believe that they danced
so well as to make the efforts of the students seem ridiculous. Nor do we feel
at liberty to tell what occurred "behind the scenes" when the curtain "fell" at
Still-it's Oh, aren't we happy!
And it's Oh, don't we have fun!
There isn't a one who is nappy,
There isn't a one who's been doneg
Every wish, evil or foolish, has been granted before it was aglqedg
You'd fall on your knees
If you thought it would please
A junior of naughty-two-that's me,
A Junior of naughty-two.
And, best of all, came the Class Song, with its melody fitting our deeper
feeling, its words fitting feeling, thought, resolve and hope-sweeter and dearer
to us than to any one else-so sweet and dear that clear and true its refrain wells
up again and again, and we sing:
Sweet light of memory,
Shine upon our way!
Visions sweet will linger with us
Till the close of life's short day.

YEAR ago the Class of 1901 gave L'As You Like It" for their Senior
Class Night entertainment. Could they have had their heart's desire they
would have presented the play out of doors, "under the greenwood treef
but Dame Nature frowned decidedly upon an attempt to invade her territory and
so, since the forest would not com-e to the Seniors, they brought the forest to the
auditorium. VVith magnificent boughs of richest green and with graceful festoons
of Wild grapevine and ivy, they made a veritable forest of Arden, where one
might Heet the time carelessly as in the golden world.
We are told that Domsie, the grand old schoolmaster at Drumtochty, "had
an unerring scent for 'pairts' in his laddies. He could detect a scholar in the egg
and prophesied Latinity from a boy that seemed tit only for a cowherdf' XN'ith
equal discernment Miss Hoaglin made her cast of characters for the play, her skill-
ful selection making a harmonious whole. She found and trained a captivating
Rosalind-one of Shakespeares most charming women, full of courage and merry
Wit. In spite of her disguise, with her "doublet and hose" and her "gallant curtle-
ax upon her thigh" she is always tender and woinanly. XYhere could a sweeter
Celia be found? She had but to be herself to represent the gentle, loyal mate
of Rosalind. The scenes between the two girls were delightful. Orlando was
capital, the youth "so gentle full of noble device, of all sorts enchantingly beloved."
Touchstone kept the audience in a roar of laughter, with his fantastic garb and
movements, and the quaintness and richness of his fool's wisdom. The part of
the melancholy Jaques who "loved sad cheer and could suck melancholy out of a
song" was given an unusually line interpretation, the speech beginning ".Xll the
world's a stage" being especially effective. No one present will soon forget
Audrey, the honest, unsophisticated country wench. She heard 'l'ouchstone say
of her, "She is a poor, ill-favored thing, but mine own," but it disturbed her not
a particle. She merely kept on eating apples with alarming relish. liqually well
remembered is VVilliam, her shepherd lover. He looked exactly as if he had
stepped right out of one of lidwin .fXbbey's pictures of rural lingland. He said
little, but the expression of his face when Audrey scorned him, or Touclistonc
intimidated him, was side-splitting. The parts were all well taken and the play
furnished an evening of unusual pleasure. "As You Like lt" is "Shakespeare's
happiest comedy, most equable, least boisterous, richest in music heard in the
enchanted forest of .iXrden." its magic stole into the hearts of players and audi-
ence, and under the spell of the great master of literature all responded to his
keen delight in natnre's out-of-doors and to his rich interpretation of human

HE term, Young Women's Christian Association, stands for a distinct
and concrete idea. It means young women associated together volun-
tarily having in mind a christian purpose-to stimulate an interest in
evangelical religion among young women and to improve intellectually,
socially and spiritually. The distinct purpose of the school organization
here is to unite and organize the christian forces and influences of the school,
to deepen the spiritual life of those students who already know Christ and
thru them to win others. A broader purpose is to become interested in the
christian life of other schools and in the conversion of students of other lands.
That an organization with such purposes is essential to our school was recog-
nized by the young women during the first year of the school's life, for the
organization was made permanent in january, IQOO. In the two years
which have elapsed the Association has grown broader and stronger in many
ways. Weekly devotional meetings have been held. Sometimes these were
simply prayer-meetingsg at other times helpful and interesting talks were
given by different members of the faculty. These meetings were always
well attended. The visits of the State Secretary, Miss Elizabeth Cole, were
an inspiration to all. Attractive receptions were given from time to time.
These socialoccasions were genuinely pleasing and interesting. One dele-
gate was sent to the Lake Geneva Conference last year and four were sent
to the Aurora State Convention in November.

HE Young Men's Christian Association has not been very
flourishing this year, yet we trust that an influence for
good has gone out that will leave a lasting impression.
Meetings are usually held on Friday evenings. Monthly
meetings have been held in union with the Young W'omen's
Christian Association. The latter organization, being larger
and being full of enthusiasm, has had a telling effect upon the
Young Men's Christian Association.
During the winter term Mr. Charles gave a series of talks
on evolution. These were especially interesting to the students,
since they brought out the harmony between science and the
Bible, proving that to be a scientist does not mean to be an
Members of the Faculty have frequently led our meetings,
thus showing an interest in our spiritual welfare, as well as in
our mental development.
Christian organizations inia school, although apparently
insignificant, give an uplifting tone to the whole school.

But the Emil of the Cboblins

HE Normal students are a serious set. They
toil all night till broad daylight, and never
sleep a wink: they work all day, and have no
pay but just to think and think. They
march along, an endless throng, to school at
early dawn: and e'en at night, by coal-oil
light, the column still moves on.
You should have seen them on one par-
Qfb ticular night going to school after supper.
carrying valises and bandboxes. This did
not seem strange, for the Normal students have so many queer things to
transport that of course they must get them from place to place as best they can.
Tall men have been known to go carrying little sprigs of pussy willow, and the
pretty girls take saws and hatchets, stuffed squirrels and live snakesg and why
should they not get these curious objects out ot the way by tumbling them all
into valises and boxes if they wish? But when they opened their bundles this
time there were no snakes at all, no books, no squirrels, no pussy willows-just
a lot of stuff with no apparent aim or reason. lint it was Halloween, and strange
things always happen on Halloween.
The students must have been dazed by what they saw: but true to their na-
ture and training, they accepted the situation presently, fell into line, and adapted
their plans to their environment-"let the punishment tit the crime," so to speak.
The gymnasium was the scene of action. lt was not many minutes until such a
motley array as one rarely meets in these 'classic halls came trooping in. There
were darkies. The school boasts none usually, but they were here that night,
and in all their chocolate glory. The woolly pigtails of the maidens stood out
in true Topsey fashiong while the pompous old black preacher and the entirely
irresistible ebony swell performed each his special function in lite to perfection.
The babies were there, eight or ten of them-dear little souls! They were all in
long white dresses, and their sweet faces shone out from dainty white bonnets.
They clung close to their nurse all the evening, and seemed very timid, but there
were so many things to frighten children that it was not surprising. liven some
of the grown-ups devoted no little time in keeping out of the way of a dreadful
creature with a long white beard and grizzly gray hair. lle might have been a
hundred years old, and l think that most of his lite had been spent in tormentine'
innocent people, he seemed so bent on doing it. .Xud then there were the lu-
dians-veritable little savages. There were four of them, and since they were
only little girls not much could be expected of them, but their mothers must
have known that they would make trouble if they came alone. It was a fine op-
portunity to study the Indian characteristics, however, and we ought to appre-
ciate that. The complexion of the Indian, I noticed, is swarthy, with a high
color on the cheeks: the hair is straight and black, and hangs in a mass over
the shoulders. They wear short, red dresses, with many beads and showy orna-
ments. The Indian is very Heet of foot: he can be in several places almost at
the same time. He is of a teasing disposition, and devotes his entire time to
making life miserable for civilized people. He steals. He takes everything of
yours that he can get his hands on, and then llaunts it in your face. These
things have I learned.
There were wooden-shoe Dutchmen, too, and a Chinamang there were Iaps
and Quakersg but all these last named were comparatively quiet, well-behaved
One most interesting thing was a gypsy tent, where you might learn any--
thing you wanted to know. Here not only were the events of the past reviewed
but the secrets of the future were revealed. Here were warnings for the way-
ward against the evils of their course, and sure guidance for the thoughtful to
health, wealth and happiness.
Canes could be bought for a penny, if you succeeded in collaring one with a
ring: pop corn, trinkets of all sorts-all were to be had for a merely nominal
priceg and the pumpkin pie, doughnuts, apples and coffee flowed free for all.
It may have been the feasting that furnished the bond of sympathy-cer-
tainly something seemed to make these diverse specimens of humanity actually
enjoy being together.

HIS section is known by its fruits in the shape of hue millinery, Indian
basketry and other similar products.
Under the lead of Miss Emma F. Stratford, the Art Section met
once in two weeks on Monday evenings, in the pleasant sitting room at Mr.
Switzer's. The hour of meeting was from four to half-past five o'clock.
The section numbered about thirty very industrious young women.
At the very first meeting work was begun. The ideal to be realized was
a finely woven Indian basket of raffia. Each member planned the shape,
size and decoration of her basket. Each basket was to be an expression
of its maker's originality, ingenuity, dexterity and taste. A few of the
baskets have been completed and are really works of art. Others will be
finished this summer, still others will be framed later, in various stages of
completion-souvenirs of happy hours spent, "VVhen I was a member of
the Art Section of 1901-1902"
Besides the baskets, the class learned how to make from raflia, table
mats for hot dishes, drinking glass covers, picture frames, etc.
When spring was seen afar off, spring hats naturally became the topic
of conversation. So skillful in handling raffia had the girls become that
they no longer needed the help of inilliners. They plaited four strands of
rafha so skillfully and sewed the braids into such becoming and sensible
shapes that the young women of the N. I. S. N. S. are likely to become dis-
tinguished on account of their rafiia hats.
While the girls wrought, Miss Stratford, or some other member of the
section, read magazine articles on the early pottery and basketry of the
American Indians. During the last term the reading was along thc line of
school room decoration and use of pictures in the school rooin
UST imagine about thirty girls and twice as many sofa pillows, scat-
tered about a room, some in chairs and many upon the floor.
Some of the girls bring their darning, others Work on sofa pillows,
some are always busy at battenburg and some of our members are so far-
sighted that they even bring napkins to hem. You now have an idea of how
we look, but this is not primarily a sewing bee.
At each meeting we discuss something from some of the current maga-
zines. We have pursued different methods during the year. Part of the
time we divided the magazines into groups according to the subjects with
which they deal, and discussed articles from a single group at each meeting.
For a while each member reviewed an entire magazine and reported upon it,
so that we might become acquainted with the different magazines. Recently
part of the hour has been devoted to the reading of a serial in Scribner, "Cap-
tain Macklin's Memoirs," by Richard Harding Davis, while the rest of the
time is spent in discussing some article of current news.
VVe appoint a-chairman each term and she sees that someone reads the
story, and selects the articles to be discussed, so you see we are quite sys-
tematic in our proceedings although we ares so thoroughly informal. We
really enjoy that hour from 6:30 to 7:30 on Tuesday evenings very much, and I
think all of us look ahead to it as time to be well spent. We have an oppor-
tunity to get our mending done, we learn something of what is going on in
the world and others' ideas about it, and for a little while we forget our
algebra and psychology, thus each week we have at least one hour of prohta-
ble recreation and enjoyment.
HIS year the members of the literary and current news sections thought
it best to unite forces and give the first ten minutes of every meeting
to the discussion of current events. The remainder of the hour has been
spent in pleasant and profitable reading of myth and romance.
In the fall term the Greek stories of the creation of the world, of the
gods of heaven and the gods of the under-world were taken up. We became
acquainted with Cronus, Jupiter, the Cyclopes, the hundred-handed Echa-
toncheres and many other gods and goddesses. In connection with these
myths, the literary treatment of such legends as Prometheus Unbound were
During the winter term we entered the fairyland of romance which is
not far removed from the sober domain of history. NVe read of the Great
Charles, of the daring deeds that Roland wrought with his good sword Dur-
dandal, of his friendship with Oliver, of the treacherous Ganelon and of the
heroic death of Roland at the pass of Ranonces Valles.
Then in the closing term of the year we went to the gloomy home of
Nibelheim to rescue the Rhinegold from the tyrant dwarf Alberich, helped
Siegfried kill the dragon, passed through the circle of fire to awaken the
sleeping lirunnhilde and at last finished with the beautiful myth and legends
of our own dear land.

As toward the sea the babbling brook
Sings softer, sweeter, and its look
Bespeaks its glad content,
So may the swift advancing years
Bring sweet content and peace, no tears
For joys departed.
But sometimes e'en the brook must How
Between the banks where willows grow
And shadows darkly hover,
Further on, in sunshine's light,
It dances, playful, joyous, bright,
As though it knew no shadow.
So when the shadows darkly fall
And grief is full,-and duty's call
Is to thy soul a burden, A
Think:-just beyond the dark is light,
Beyond the willows, flowers bright,
Beyond? Yes, rest forever.

HAT an interesting Aid Society the contents of a
students waste basket would make if they could
talk. The peanut shucks in the bottom would
make the lead pencil whittlings green with envy
by hinting about the things they saw and heard
when the girls had their Friday night frolic, and
p the lead pencil whittlings could boast of a kinship
to the autocrat of the study table until every
nose in the basket would turn up scornfully and assume an indiiference to
blue blood, and it would be clear that in the realm of the waste basket as
in another realm, does the nose belie the heart. The arithmetic scratch
papers would put on the role of the new woman and talk of stocks and
bonds, while the unaccepted maps would boast of the sights they saw on
Piccadilly or in the Orient, A bit of rafha would quarrel with the scrap of
darning cotton as to their respective rights to the students needle, and the
scraps of a letter which was never sent would discuss the why, the whence,
and the wherefore. And they would all laugh and chatter and gossip and
say what they did not mean and mean what nothing could sever persuade
them to say, until a reckless match would bring a calamity upon them which
would adjourn the meeting forever.

EXV YEARS is a humbug! Holidays in general are a
nuisance. XVhat different is january first from June
first or any other first day of any other month? All
this talk about resolutions is well enough, for resolu-
tions must be made and might as well be made on
january first as on any other day: but this matter
of special celebrations for no other reason than that
it is the nrst day of the year is sheer nonsense."
The above soliloquy took place in Dr, Cooks
ofhce on the last afternoon of the year nineteen hun-
dred one. The author was Dr. Cook himself. He did not often indulge in reverie.
And this one seemed to be resulting in an inhibition of his usually social nature,
which he felt, as you will see, by his next remark.
"T do not feel like myself," he said under his breath, as he moved uneasily in
his chair. "Ain T myself?" he said aloud. "No, l'm Scrooge! Normal Scrooge,"
was the answer that Hashed through his mind. .ls it any wonder that he thought of
Scrooge? NVas he not exercising his authority against the holiday spirit? Had
not the family circle in many a home been incomplete because of his oft repeated
statement, "There will be school as usual on January first. Prove your loyalty
to yourself and the school by showing that you can be counted on to stand by."
He did not choose to follow the cue, which this vague feeling presented to
his mind, through the process of isolating and combining, for the reason that his
intuitive judgment told him that the result would not be satisfactory. Further-
more, he was far too busy a man to spend many minutes in pondering over a
matter once settled in his own mind. He must be pushing ahead. He must
provide a legitimate channel for the discharge of nervous energy. He must be
active. All with whom he had dealing must be active. He must keep them
squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching and coveting the contents
of certain books that they might later on in the course meet and conquer Rosen-
kranz. He knew. They must be made to know. He was self-contained. They
must become so.
The spirit of energy rejuvenated his features, developed his chin, limbered
his gait, made his eyes twinkle and his lips full and rosy. It spoke out business-
like in his rich, deep voice. This spirit was felt. He carried it always with him.
It permeated his office in dog-days and not one degree of it was lost at New
He was not affected by the weather. External heat and cold had little
influence upon him. No warmth could be too warm, no wintry cold too chill
for him to keep an appointment. This had been so from his earliest years. No
wind that blew was more searching than he: no falling snow was more intent
upon its mission, no pelting rain less open to entreaty, if you tried to keep him
from his purpose. Foul weather did not know where to have him, for he would
overcome every obstacle it interposed.
Through this strong personality he had drawn from among his acquaintances
a host of friends and admirers, the young as well as the old, the rich as Well as
the poor, people with influence and people with none. Everybody loved him who
knew him and he was often hailed upon the street with, "My dear Cook, how
are you? When are you coming to see us lf he went to the home of a par-
ticular friend he most enjoyed the familiar greeting of boyhood days. The warm
hand grasp accompanied with, "VVell, Old Boy, l am glad to see you," or, "How
are you, Old Chap, walk right in."
There was one day in every year, however, when the friends of Dr. Cook
passed him silently, eyeing him askance, for they recognized a change in him.
They saw Dr. Cook, but they thought Scrooge. This was probably the result of
his own feelings. , He had felt the Scrooge inliuence, from his line of reasoning
concerning holidays, until it had stamped him as Scrooge. lt is almost needless
to say that this change was felt and noticed just before New Year's Day. No
student then approached him willingly to seek information, on any topic, from
his well-stored brain. But this did not trouble him. He did not care. He
rather liked it, else it would not have been so.
Gnce upon a time-of all the good times in the year, on New Year's Eve-
Dr. Cook sat busy in his office. As was stated at the beginning, he was indulging
in a reverie. lt was cold, biting weather, he could hear the students on the
campus beating their hands upon their breasts and stamping their feet upon the
board walk to keep them warm. The last electric bell had sounded the seventh
hour, but it was quite dark-it had not been light all day-the lights were turned
on throughout the building. The door of his office was open. ln the room
beyond, the clerk, as energetic as himself, was busy copying letters. She was
naturally of a cheerful and vivacious temperament, but the gloom without and
the gloom within had damped the spirit of her jollity. She worked on in silence
not noticing that Dr. Cook had ceased to ponder over the subjects to be discussed
at the next Faculty meeting.
just as he was about to resume his duties he was addressed by a Senior
Student, who had come upon him so quietly that the first intimation that he had
of his presence was his joyous greeting.
"Happy New Year, llr. Cook! Happy New Year!"
"Dahl" said Dr. Cook. "lrlumbug!"
"New Year's a lnnnbug, doctor? You do not mean that l am sure," said
"I do," said he. "Out upon Ilappy New Year! XfVhat's a Happy New Year
to you but a time lor finding yourself a year older and not an hour wiser. A
time for reviewing your lessons and finding them all but forgotten. liverybody
who goes about with 'Happy New Year' on his lips represents the double distilled
essence of idiocyf,
"Doctor," pleaded the Senior Student.
"Well?" returned the Doctor.
"You know there are students here who cannot go home to meet relatives
and friends who assemble on New Year's Day for the purpose of renewing the
ties of friendship by social intercourseg and there are others who were at hom-e
for the holidays who would have been present for these reunions had it not been
for their loyalty to you and the school, and their desire to prove that temptation
could be overcome and they could be counted upon to 'stand by.' Are these to
have no part in keeping New Year's Day?"
"Much good has it ever done those who do keep it."
"Well, I have always looked upon the day as one set apart for a joyous,
happy time, and though it may never have added to my knowledge of Psychology
or helped me to pass an examination, I believe it has done me good and I say,
'God bless it.' "
The clerk in the dim room, who could not help hearing, involuntarily
At this unexpected support of the Senior Student the Doctor lowered his
glasses, peered over the tops of them. elevated his chin, pursed his lips, and
looked a disapproval which could not have been expressed in words.
The clerk subsided, apparently, and resumed her usually attentive attitude
to business, but had not changed her opinion of the situation in the least.
Turning to the Senior Student the Doctor said, "You are quite a powerful
speaker, sir. I wonder that you do not join the Qratorical Association."
"Do not be angry with me, Doctor." I
"Those whom I represent will feel disappointed that I bring no suggestion
from you as to a suitable way of celebrating the holiday."
"A Happy New Year!"
As the Senior left the ro-om a junior and a Freshman entered. They carried
books and papers in their hands. They bowed in a respectful manner and the
Junior addressed him, "Dr. Cook, may we speak with you?"
The effect of his reverie and the interview with the Senior Student yet
fresh in his mind prompted an answer wholly unlike him and quite unexpected
to the Junior.
"Dr. Cook is never here on New Years Eve. I represent him."
"We have no doubt the Doctor's genial spirit is well represented by you,"
replied the surprised though plucky Junior.
The Doctor frowned and shook his head by way of reply.
The Junior, rather doubtful of the outcome, proceeded with the business
which had brought him to the presidents office.
f'At this festive season of the year," he said, as he walked to the desk and
picked up a pen. "it is more than usually desirable that we should make some
slight provision for a school celebration, as by yielding obedience to your author-
ity we are unable to celebrate at home. A good time is one of the common neces-
sities of life, and is what many of us are in need of, sir."
"Are there not lessons to master? Can you find no pleasure in the thought
that each day's work better fits you to become a social being F"
"We admit that there is a degree of pleasurable feeling in the process of
developing from an egoistic to a social being, but this feeling does not cover our
idea of a good time."
"Are there no themes to write ?" said the Doctor, turning to the Freshman.
"There are, sir. I wish we could say there were not."
"Are there no new facts to be acquired in Anatomy, Physiology. and
Hygiene? Has the supply of amphibians run low so that you do not have oppor-
tunity for dissecting and recording observations? Are there no microscopic
organisms with which to entertain and at the same time instruct you? Has the
Laboratory run short of material for lessons ?"
"No, indeed, sir, there is always enough material there-more than we
know what to do with."
"Oh, then it must be that there is a lack of the spirit of investigation in the
department of physics. You may not have had to perform a sufficient number
of experiments or the same experiment a sufficient number of times."
"That is not the trouble. sir. Physics, Mathematics, Psycliology, Sociology.
Biology, Civics, Ancient and Modern History, the Languages and others have
filled our time so completely as to crowd out all thought of levity. Now we are
seeking your approval of, and suggestions for, a suitable celebration of New
V ul should not infer from what l have observed that your work had been per-
mitted to seriously interfere with your recreation," said the lloctor. .Xn uninter-
rupted silence of several minutes followed this remark.
The junior and the Freshman felt that this silence, which they could not
break, was equivalent to a verbal dismissal. They felt, too, from the Doctor's
manner, that it would be useless to press the matter further, even if they had not
exhausted their resources. The lfreshman felt relieved when the junior decided
that the interview was at an end, and they left the office together tl1'C'ltlll10' to
meet those who awaited them below. A
"Wliat did he say ?" said one.
"VVhat are we going to do?" said another.
"No satisfaction." "Same old story," said the .lunior 'ind Freshman toe'ether.
"Cut it short, did he?"
"Well, there are more, ways than one to mill," said another, as they all
moved on down the hill. The Doctor, finding himself alone at last, turned his
attention to his work. lle had just settled down to business when he heard a
voice in clear, ringing tones singing:
"Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky!
The year is dying. Let him die."
He stepped to the door: felt in his pocket for his note-book, and said, ".Xn-
other evidence of the non-social spirit," "Halls are passageways and not audi-
toriums or music halls," he wrote in the book. The entry above this was: "Dirt
is matter out of place." And on the opposite page: "Leave your footprints on
the sands of time if you can, but not on the floors of the halls of N. l. S. N. S."
He now stepped to his desk, closed and locked it, and said to the clerk:
"There is considerable work to be done to-morrow."
The clerk joined a party of ladies who had just left the library and they all
left the building together. The lloctor soon arrived at the brick mansion with its
:-. - f m
massive white pillars standing out against the red background. He hastily
m-ounted the steps, applied his key to the latch, but hesitated before turning it.
"VVhy am I here P" he thought. "I'm Scrooge, not Cook. This is the home of
my former self." just at this point his attention was arrested by what appeared
to be an apparition which faced him from the plate glass in the door. "Pooh!
finger marks," he said. But look as carefully as he would, the apparition did
not change. It was the face of John W. Cook, genial, warm-hearted kindliness
reliected from every feature.
"Am I Cook or am I Scrooge ?" he said, as he removed his rubbers. "I feel
lost as to my identity." i
Pondering over the peculiar experiences of the past hour, he entered the
house and prepared for a busy evening. He removed his coat, put on dressing
gown and slippers and seated himself before the glowing grate for a few
moments' rest. He took up a volume from the table, one of the many which he

Feeling like one in a maze, he placed the receiver to his ear. A perfect babel
of voices was to be heard. He recognized them as familiar. They were the
students in the various clubs eagerly discussing plans for the following day
and evening. He heard his own name frequently. From the central he heard.
"Call up again, please. Line's in use." He could hear Mr. Gilbert making an
effort to talk with him, but it was of no use. just as he was about to leave the
'phone he heard:
"0h, yes, we'll get our lessons for to-morrow."
"VVe'll have them fine and dandy, won't we F"
"Lessons on New Year's Day! How ridiculous !"

"Thats Where you are mistaken. His name is Scrooge at holiday time."

first day of the monthf is one of his favorite speeches."
Vexed at being obliged to wait so long to get communication with Mr. Gil-
bert because of this light, unnecessary and not altogether complimentary con-
versation, he called, "Hello!" rather sharply and awoke.
"Well," he said, "only a dream, after all! I am, indeed, myself. It is too
late to make my plans for to-morrow much different, but Scrooge will have no
occasion to visit me, even in my dreams, next year."

ELDOM is found a campus so rich as ours in natural beauty and interest.
True, here are no sparkling fountains and carefully tended flower-beds: no
beautiful velvety stretches of green with sign boards reading, "Please keep
off the grass." Unly in imagination can we hear the carriages crunching their
way over the long well-graveled drives. The trees are not set out in well-arranged
groups or rows: the little hills have not been leveled down or the little ditches
lillecl in. But every crook and corner just as it is, is dear to our hearts. Every
tree with its beautiful foliage wr bare purple limbs, speaks of adaptations or the
mysteries of leaf coloration. Not a single saucy weed, not a blade of grass, not
a plant or willow but has its own wonderful tale to tell if you will but look and
listen. The blue-eyed violets, yellow buttercups, spring beauties and trillium nod
and smile at us as we roam through the fragrant grass on golden afternoons.
"And hovering near them, 'Chee chee, chink 7
Queries the curious bobolink,
Pausing and peering with sidelong head.
Saucily questioning all that is said."
The gentle undulations of land with its varied soil, speak of the time when
this region was clothed with garments from the northern ice-cap. That dirty
looking pond and the narrow winding river are the safe homes of tadpoles, frogs
and myriads of insects that hum and buzz and croak and sing until the restless
longing spirit is quieted. Y BTINNIE H. POHL.

T WAS night in a mystic world. The shadowy form of a lone
Student moved mysteriously about a house which was occu-
pied by a band of hard-working, long-suffering Normal School
teachers, who were engaged in doing the tasks set for them

unrelenting taskmaster, whose memory retained all the efc

the tables were turned, passed from room to room examining completed
work, assigning new tasks and recording his conscientious conclusions in his
ponderous book of grades.
Mysteriously, his shadowy form X-rayed a door and he viewed a room
where, in the midst of a confused, though complete, assortment of geography
helps, such as a pot of paste, a pail of sand, tin pans and railroad guides, a little
woman, seated upon a stack of National Geographical magazines, was diligently
refining paper pulp with one hand while with the other she drew a map of Europe
with her eyes shut. The Student-in-Charge pushed a blue-pencil check through
the keyhole and turned to the opposite door.
The piece of paper which he slipped under this door bore the message.
"Prove that AK and OUC are equal, isosceles, and tangent." The poor teacher
within was just opening a letter from home when she saw the new assignment.
Subinissively, she laid it aside, saying in her hopeful way, "l'robably l shall have
time to read it Sunday." .
The Student next assigned a history lesson thus: "Read the ten volumes
on the Slavery question which l have placed on the reserve shelf. Take time
to absorb and reflect." A despairing groan disturbed the uncanny stillness of the
night and had it not been true that the hrofessor of history was one of the most
optimistic of men he would not have been able to smile again before morning.
ln the apartment of the professor of biology, good work was being done. A
sweet-faced girl, with her sleeves rolled high and a knife in her hand was just
about to prove a scientific fact to the doubting professor, hy dissecting a frog.
The professor was indeed trying to feel equal to the occasion but he could not
shut out of his mind the thoughts of the once happy frog family on the banks of
the Kishwaukee, of the poor little motherless froggies left out in the cold and the
rain, and he became so wrought up by brooding over the solemn tragedy of it
all that at sight of the blood his courage failed, he turned ghastly pale, sank to
the lloor, and begged piteously to be carried from the room. The Student-in-
Charge immediately raised the girl's salary and left word for the professor to
"call at the oflicef'
From an adjoining room came the voices of two room-mates strangely
mingling "Julius Caesar" and "Little Tin Soldier." Those two teachers had
originated a plan for solving the problem of how to find time for the third, fourth,
and fifth oral readings of each of the Shakespearean plays, and for unlimited
voice culture. But much as they would have liked to give the world the beneit
of the discovery they dared not make it known for they feared the disapproval
of the Student-in-Charge. But the plan worked so well that even his exact ear
was thoroughly deceived and he never knew that both the reader and the singer
were at that verylmoment fast asleep. It is hoped that they proved to be public-
spirited enough to reveal the secret even at the cost of being graded below
Unknown to the ever watchful Student, two teachers were talking together
in the hall. Anxiety and distress were stamped all over their faces while they
discussed their troubles. For several nights each of them had been disturbed by
horrible dreams and both of them were growing pale and thin because of dreams
by night and remembrance of those dreams by day. She told of a weird, goblin-
eyed drawing pencil which had insisted on telling her fortune, and of kneaded
rubber erasers with great big claws which had compelled her to eat paint, ink
and brushes all night long. Her friend in misery told that he had dreamed of
sulphurous fumes which always followed him and threatened to choke him if it
took all summer, and that an iron chain made out of weather books had locked
him in his laboratory and left him to the mercy of a regiment of air-pumps in
the guise of Filipino warriors who drank up all the air in the building. The
only peaceful moments these teachers ever had, so they said, were when they
had so much work to do that it crowded out the thoughts of their dreams and
they alone of all the teachers sighed for harder work and more of it.
The determined heart of the Student was touched by the next sight which
he witnessed. In a large arm-chair sat two despairing women, each trying to
comfort the other. Between their sobs they spoke, one in German, the other in
Latin, and reiterated the disconsolate phrase "which only means. 'I shall never
pass." "Such is most excellent mental discipline," said the Student-in-Charge.
as he went on to tell the arithmetic teacher that he must complete the last half
of the book in the next three days. Already it was nearing morning. For three
hours that teacher had sat with his elbows resting on the table, his head, in his
hands, his chin in his collar, his fingers in his ears. his eyes riveted on his problem.
and his mind concentrated on a I.O24362I which he had found in his answer book.
At thought of a new assignment his nervous system collapsed and he did what
scores of others have done under like circumstances-he dropped his head upon
his study-table and slept, and in sleep he found relief, for he dreamed a dream
that gave him the solution to his problem.
The Student had yet to see how she who had been directed to write a theme
was progressing. About her room were many fragments of paragraphs which.
though born gloriously, refused to mature. Thoughts about the enormous bills
she had paid for theme paper which only went into the waste-basket, crowded
out all other thoughts and she would sadly throw another infant production into
the waste-basket, take a long breath, and make a fresh start. But the Student
felt encouraged when he noticed how heroically she chewed her pencil and with
what a fixed expression she gazed out into that world from whence fine phrases
The Student's duties were almost done and he went to the last room where
two scholarly professors, who had delved deeply into the sciences of mind and
of matter and who never wearied in pondering over mental mysteries, worked
together, or rather, used to work together, for he found the room empty, except
for a bit of paper on which was written: "That psychology is beyond mortal
comprehension. After eleven hours of hard study on it we packed our trunks and
determined to take the first train home." Probably the Student-in-Charge had
never heard about the last straw that broke the camel's back. He then rang the
sunrise bell. a signal for the teachers to retire, and went at once to his study to
add a chapter to his pedagogical treatise on "The Development of lntegrity and
the Necessity of Strenuous Labor."
T HAS many moods, this beautiful, treacherous lake. At one time it is as
peaceful and blue as the peaceful blue sky above it, lapping its waters against
the shore in gentle little laps. Frail row-boats glide over its surface all
unmindful of the storms that have been or that may beg children wade in up to
their waists, throwing stones to see the ripples, little dreaming that this smooth
sheet of water can be other than beautiful. Strollers along the shore enjoy the
varied colors on its shimmering surface, and the graceful sail-boats outlined
against the sky. But there comes a day when it has a frown as dark as the black
clouds hovering near the horizon. Higher and higher it piles its waves as if to
dash these intruders in pieces, and failing, turns in fury to the shore, as though
to tear the very earth in spite. Then again, on a bright day, clear across its
surface white crested waves chase each other in merry race to the water's edge,
where they dash pell-mell, head over heels, and finally fall back in the water
exhausted. Some days grim VVinter puts a stop to all its anger, all its boisterous
play, and holds it in his icy grasp. Great piles of ice skirt the shore, and beyond
these, almost as far as the eye can see, stretches a sheet of ice. Nothing is heard
but a dull, distant rumble, like the muffled roar of a caged lion. Thus it chafes
at its confinement: but it cannot escape-not until the south wind blows, and the
sun has a warmer kiss. ELEANOR TROXELL.

lSS BELLE SHAVV, our dear teacher way back in '76, was going away-
I ever so far away-to l'hiladelphia, my mother said, to attend the Expo-
sition. To us of the valiant third grade this news was crushing, for was
not Miss Shaw the dearest, best, and jolliest teacher that ever lived? We thought
so then, and the wise years have not changed that childish judgment, for in
regard to things of our youth. habit is stronger than our later wisdom. Yes, the
Exposition was a great thing, and to us its success depended largely upon Miss
Shaw's presence. I have never learned just what she did to make the thing a
success, but I then thought her part was more important than even that of the
President of the United States.
Miss Shaw had been good to us, and so we must be good to her. We should
certainly remember her "to our dying day," and it never occurred to us that we
m-ight not be quite so necessary to her happiness as she was to ours. So when we
crowded upon the stile at recess to discuss the situation, it required but the bare
suggestion of it to convince everyone of us that the only proper thing was for
us to "give a surprise party on Miss Shaw." Many years later, as an ardent lover
myself, l came to appreciate that this was ON Miss Shaw in more ways than one,
and to sympathize with the feelings of that tall, handsome young man who left
soon after we arrived and to whom Miss Shaw, after a long silence in the hall,
said, "Goodnight, George!"
VVe felt, as I have intimated, that this party was the unanimous will of the
third grade: and since this was true, we must go as a grade-go all at once to
make the surprise more intense. And therefore we must meet at some centrally
located house at seven o'clock and march to Miss Shaw's so that all the people
on the "Square,' should know that an event of more than ordinary importance
was occurring. This plan almost kept me from the party. Qur house was not
"centrally located," except with respect to the forty-acre field on which it stood
in lonely-if not majestic, isolation. Going to parties had not yet become habitual
with me, nor was it a matter of frequent occurrence among my elder brothers
and sisters. Indeed, my going was distinctly an event of great importance to
the entire family. My father and brothers gave me no end of good advice which
I neither understood nor appreciated. My sisters begged to know who my "com-
pany" was to be. My mother insisted that my copper-toed boots should have
better polish than on Sundaysg that no trace of dust should be upon my clothes:
that my hair must be plastered down tight to my head after the fashion of the
timesg that my best pocket handkerchief should be ready in case of any emer-
gencyg and finally, that my tie should be arranged "just so." Inwardly, I was
all in a flutter, for I kept thinking of what I should say to that divinity by whose
side I was to walk to the party, and whom, after the party was over, I was to
escort home alone-I was actually to go up to the door of that mansion which
Was said to be "the finest house in town"--with her, the envy of all the girls, the
day-star of the boys-the fair Ione, the Mayor's daughter.
You can understand now why, upon hearing, just as I left my entire family
standing in the doorway, and mother's voice above the rest telling me to be home
at nine o'clock-you can understand, I say, why upon hearing the town clock
strike the first stroke of seven, my gait changed from a walk into a run. It was
half a mile to that "centrally located" house, and it was just time for the procession
to move. Woiilcl they wait for me? And what would lone think of me? There
Was no room in mv bewildered mind for other thoughts. l ran as l never ran
before. My foot tripped-I fell headlong. .IX dingy street lamp afforded enough
light for me to discover that the polish on my boots was hopelessly ruined, and
the sense of touch told me that the muddy water which l felt on my arm had
probably also left its mark upon my lirst cuffs. There was no time to think-I
must reach that "centrally located" place as soon as possible.
Of course, they and lone, too, had gone before l reached the place, and then
began the chase. l foundtthe trail, and overtook the party just before they
reached Miss Shaw's home. Ione dropped back and in a very few words l told
her all that she had not seen at the first glance. She took one hand in hers and
simply said, "l'm glad you came."
Then we were ushered ing or better, we piled in. Miss Shaw was "so sur-
prised"g Mrs. Shaw came in from the kitchen with her checked gingham apron
on, and was "so glad" to see us. George, too, looked surprised, but didn't say
After George left, the real fun began. Wfe hadn't counted on him, and didn't
feel that he appreciated us. There were good, old-fashioned games, drop the hand-
kerchief, spin the platter, Miller lloy-although some of us never grasped the
internal structure of the game-forfeits and other things that have faded from
memory, while yet, thank God! the feelings they aroused are still undinnned.
VVhencver we made a mistake we had to deposit a forfeit, and later redeem it.
My best pocket handkerchief was needed as was also the white-handled knife
which I had won as a prize for learning the multiplication table through the
twelves, and all the other things my boyls pockets held were forfeited. I rather
liked the various forms of redemption and so, perhaps, made some mistakes that
were inexcusable. That HI-Ieavy, heavy, hangs over your head" was always
"superfme" for me, except when I had to "thread the needle" with Maggie
Schofield. There were compensations, however, for to redeem my pocket-knife
I had to "pick fifteen cherries and measure off ten yards of cloth" with Ione.
This is, peradventure, one reason why I, at the age of twelvef' cried and would
not be comforted" when that knife was lost. We measured off the cloth first-
such short yards they were-and we lost the count-not cheating ourselves, oh,
no! nor cheating anyone else either.
We then mounted the table and began to pick those "supe1-fine" cherries.
Such cherries never grew on trees-not even in California. They grow only on
lips which have in them a love that is deeper than life itself. But how strange
in life is the mixture of the bitter and the sweet. As we were picking that ninth
cherry, the door opened suddenly and the Mayor himself, immaculate in dress
and toying his mustache, appeared. And just as it seemed to me that I could
spring upon him and tear him to pieces, he said, f'Little daughter, I have come
to take you home."
I do not know how I reached the floor, or found my hat, or said good-night
to Miss Shaw, but I'm sure all these things, if done at all, were done quickly,
for I was anxious to go home. I saw a light and knew that mother was waiting
for me. Again my best pocket handkerchief came into play-this time to brush
away the tears that had come with anger. I made excuse that I was tired and
went at once, without kissing mother, to my room. As I was sobbing to myself,
I heard a step. Mother entered, tucked the cover around my neck, whispered
a little prayer, kissed my forehead, and stole away. But it was not until after
the town-clock struck twelve that my sobbing died away in sleep.

WED. Mar. 5.-Spring is coming. Every time that I go to the door to-day I hear
a lazy cut-cut-ca-da-cut, which seems to come from the very depths of an
old hen's toes and, rising cautiously, then stronger, bolder, at last escapes
from her throat and is carried away by the south wind. And then, too, I
have heard that far-resounding, beating sound which tells me very plainly
that some thrifty housewife is cleaning a carpet. I think I smell the dust.
Through my open doorway, as I write, com-es another sign of spring-
the smoky air from a bonfire. I shall look for the ragman to-morrow.
THURS. Mar. 6.-Another sign of spring. VVe had horseradish for dinner. VVhat
could be better for that tired feeling? The school children have caught
the spirit of spring. They spent the noon-hour on the campus to-day. A
few of them were imaginative enough even to enjoy lying on the ground.
FRI. Mar. 7.-Spring is here. A robin told me so. As I was taking my morning
walk he called to me from an oak tree across the creek. My! but wasn't
I glad to see him.
SAT. Mar. 8.-Right in my path to-day I found a twig of pussy-willows-real,
true pussy-willows-that some wasteful little boy, no doubt, had picked
and thrown away. llut it was enough to arouse my wildest longings.
O be gone, ye dull Arithmetic and prosy tiramniar. tio sit upon your shelf
and trouble me no more. I must go down the creek where the pussy-
willows grow and whe1'e the brave skunk cabbage is raising its head out
of the icy marshes-first green harbinger of spring.

the Ghirstg Q'5riffin
HY were such grewsome figures as griffins placed upon the Norm-al
building? Much I wondered over this until, looking through some old
books in the tower-room, I came across a queer looking one with pages
'yellow with age and containing a strange picture of a griffin holding three
feathers. VVould this book explain a mystery? Alas! It was in German with
the old lettering at that. However, with much labor. I managed to translate
enough to get from it the following legend. Much of the beauty and weirdness
of the old tale is lost by my poor translation.
Long ago, when Odin ruled over the world and Thor hurled his hammer at
the enemies of the gods, a race of Griflins lived just at the edge of the country
lighted by the rays of light beaming from the bright brow of Balder in Valhalla.
These Griffins had a thirst, but unlike the heroes of Valhalla, their thirst was
for knowledge. They showed this in their mysterious eyes, so deep set that
they seemed like caverns of mystery. Their half-human chins were covered by
short bristles tapering to a point, because whenever they were perplexed, they
had a habit of stroking their chins. The tips of their ears were always forward
as though they were listening for information and their bodies were grotesque
to the extreme.
Among them was one young Griffin who was thirstier than the others, and
because he was foremost among his fellows he was called Graf. Indeed, he would
leave the favorite pastime of young Griffins, that of turning over leaves to see
what was on the other side, to be with the older Griffins whom he greatly tor-
mented by his perplexing questions. His special victim was an old Griffin who
had been to the very edge of Griffmland and close to the vast forests that are
within sight of Valhalla. Here he had wisely turned back for no one had ever
penetrated these forests and returned to Griffinland. However, he was fond of
telling the younger Griffins what lay beyond the forest as though he had really
been there. Now Graf took great delight in things outside of Griffinland and
would follow him around hour after hour, asking about the creatures that lived
in these forests. After the old Griffin had pompously told him many things, he
at last became so exasperated at Graf's merciless questioning, that he snarled,
"Go, ask Slafgurd. She will tell you."
Now this was very cruel of the old Griffin'for Slafgurd, held the secret of
the path through the forest, and once through, no Griffin ever returned. But
Graf, young and fearless, joyfully set out for the cave of Slafgurd. Far beyond
the edge of Griffinland, he journeyed, through forests filled with strange monsters
so terrible in aspect that his knees smote together: yet he went on. He passed
between walls of rock so high that the Balder's light only glinted here and there,
leaving most of the place in awful darkness. Once he thought he heard a rush
of wings like the wings of eagles, but on looking around, he saw only vanishing
mists. Qnce the claw of a hideous monster reached toward him to draw him
down into a black abyss, but he sprang over it and went on with new courage.
Finally he came to a river beside a land of impenetrable darkness. A bridge.
suspended by a single thread, led over this river to the darkness beyond. Again
he heard the rush of wings and saw the mists fade away. Then he knew he was
on the borders of the kingdom of Hel, Queen of the Darkness, daughter of Loki,
the arch deceiver. He stopped, appalled, and would have turned back, but just
then he thought he saw before him the old Griffin who had sent him on this quest.
Graf sprang toward him, but he felt only a gust of wind on his cheek and saw a
shadow pass over the bridge and disappear. Now the
Whole valley seemed to be one great mist, a mist that
was ghastly for it was the soul of Hildjir the giant,
whom Thor had slain. Graf was so terror stricken
that he would have fied, but the. giant's soul was so
large that it filled the valley, and the other way he
dared not go, so he crept behind a rock and waited.
As the giant's soul passed over the bridge, he saw that
the ghastly face of mist was distorted in a hideous
grin, then the mist swept out in a long thin streak to-
ward the west and Graf knew that the giant was
pointing the way to Slafgurd's cave. He followed the
direction and soon a ray of Balder's light shown upon
Eagerly approaching the place, he saw an old hag
picking drops of dew from a fog that Hoated by. In
the fog Graf thought he saw the wasted souls of men,
and in the dew the smiles of new born babes as they
looked up into the mothers eyes. The murky fog went
on to the kingdom of Hel, but the drops of dew went
back to refresh the earth. Now Slafgurd talked with Graf and pointed out the
way through the forest and gave him three drops of dew which, she said, would
drive away the Spirits of lfvil. So tiraf gladly set out to find his way through
the forest and to reach the Haunt of the Ravens: for Slafgurd had told him
that these birds were the favorite hirds of Odin, and that when Odin gave his
eye for a drink from the fountain of wisdom he gave some of the drink to his
ravens. That is why, even to-day, they sit on tree-tops and eroak out a dismal
warning to men.
Now Graf wanted to take some of this wisdom hack to tiriffmland. This he
would surely have done, had not Loki, who had heen lurking ahont Slafgurd's
Cave, thrown a weed at him which made him very sleepy. XfVhen tiraf was asleep,
Loki stole the dew from him, and taking the form of a raven, began to croak
over his head. Graf was dreaming of Griffinlnd and of the days when he used to
turn the leaves over to find what was on the other side. But Loki threw a piece
of bark down upon his head and Graf awoke and looked stupidly about. Then
he saw Loki and thought he was the raven Elfrid, the raven of experienceg so
he called out, asking Elfrid for some of his wisdom, that he might take it back to
Griflinland. Now, Loki hated Elfrid and thought he could work him harm
through Graf. Accordingly he led him near to the place where Elfrid was sleep-
ing on the low branch of a tree, and called to Graf. "Pull three feathers from may
tail and you shall have what you desire."
There was Loki so close to Elfrid that if he had but flapped his wing, Elfrid
must have been knocked off the branch. just as Graf tried to seize Loki, the false
one vanished and Graf pulled three feathers from the tail of Elfrid.
Now he was in a sad plight, for Elfrid flew away to Valhalla and angrily told
Odin of the theft. Thor went into a rage and, seizing his hammer, would have
killed poor Graf, but Odin commanded that Graf be brought before him. When
Graf came into the presence of Odin, he forgot his terror in wonder at the majesty
he beheld. The hair and beard of Odin surrounded his face like the clouds floating
around the top of a mountain. His one eye gleamed like a thousand stars, and his
mouth looked like the smile of the sun on the tops of trees in summer time.
When Odin had heard Graf's story, he said, "This is Loki's work," and his one
eye gleamed lightnings as he commanded Loki to give up the dew he had stolen.
Now Graf pleased Odin, so Odin permitted him to stand ever after at the
entrance to Valhalla, where he learned many things and no longer cared to return
to Griflinland. He did not keep the feathers he had pulled from the tail of the
raven Elfrid, but he gave them to men, and since that day men have grown strong
through the wisdom of experience. Perhaps that is why we have the griflins on
our building. PAUL J. LUCAS.

:Sn the Springtime
LOVVLY over the silent campus a gray March morning crept out from the
east and gusty winds shivered among the bare tree-tops. The cam-pus still
slept, but it dreamed of the spring. Through the stillness and chill a clear
voice called, "Wake up! XVake up! XVake up !" Straight from the sky it seemed
to fall, and then from' the highest branch of a tall elm it came again, "W'ake up!
Wake up!" Morning after morning the same courageous voice called to the
sleeping life in seed and root and bud. The little river pushed back its wintry
cover and ran on free: the pond unlocked its long-closed doors and frogs began
to croakg then a chorus of bird voices answered the call of that first messenger
of spring. Beneath the ground the call was heard, and waking life burst from the
hearts of buried seeds and sprang up fresh and green from roots of grasses.
Throughout the length of trunk and branch a joyous thrill pulsed upward to the
waiting buds. It glowed in the yellowing bark of the willow and it feathered the
elm with countless brown flowers.
Now is the yearly miracle complete and spring is
with color and thrilling us with song. The vanes on
her coming, and the griffins that guard them seem to
again on our campus, bright
the towers point the way of
smile in the sun. Gay with
dandelions is the level stretch of green, and beyond the little stream, on the gentle
wooded slope, the delicate draperies of pale green leaves are not yet woven thick
enough to hide the forms that wear them. The oak puts forth her dainty leaves
and fringy blossoms and the hickory peels back her pink-lined wrappers from her
great green buds and holds them to the sun. That Hash of orange tells us that the
oriole is here, while on a branch above the scarlet tanager sits like a gorgeous
blossom. The grosbeak Hits from tree to tree and violets reflect the bluebird's
:olor from the grass. Here buttercups lift up their shining faces to the light:
wild oxalis makes the hillside pink, and yarrow waves its slender plumes.
Through the shallow waters of the pond, the flags thrust up their swordlike leaves
and sandpipers wade or skim above its ripples. In the
flutter and the saucy blackbird comes to seek a spot
where she may hide her nest. The thornapple. trees
blossoms and noisy bees are humming in the fragrant
margin sparrows dash and
among the growing reeds
are white with a snow of
crab-apple thicket, waiting
for the round pink buds to part their dainty petals. Upward from the grass Hoats
the clear song of the meadowlark and over all is the warm bright sunshine.

When we wander about the campus in the golden light of an early autumn
sunset, we sometimes forget that anything exists across the little Kishwaukee or
beyond the gates-that another world lies outside. We have a strange, dreamy
self-consciousnessg we are a part of one great existence-Nature. The trees at
the south stand in brilliant foliage: deep browns blend with yellows and vie in
beauty with the reds and greens. Here and there, apart from the rest, a lonely
oak or elm flaunts its colors in solitary splendor. North, east, and west, the rolling
prairie stretches away in quiet shades of green and brown. The milk-weeds and
the thistles fling open their pods to liberate their fieecy treasures, the beggar ticks
and mulleins shake down their brown seeds, crickets chirp and skip across our
path, while locusts and butterflies swing upon the grasses. Everything is in
drowsy stillness, broken now and then by the thud of a falling acorn or the twit-
ter of a bird. A gentle breeze just stirs the branches and a few dry leaves Hut-
ter to the ground to rustle underfoot. All around is seen the old life
and the new. The yellow haze of Indian summer rests sleepily upon the landscape
and softly blends with the red glow of the sunset about the Normal's massive
walls and towers. VVhen we reach the little foot-bridge and look back upon the
rich coloring, the great crimson sun slowly sinks from sight and we hear from
the distance the birds' last evening carol as the twilight shadows lengthen and
deepen. MiXRY V. G.xRR1z'rsoN.
fDn a frosty morning
The frost master is a wonderful workman. Softly, silently, invisibly, he works
through the night, fashioning the commonplace into the beautiful. lVith what
precision and deftness he forms his exquisite, delicate crystals! ln one brief
night he has made the sombre campus a land of wonder. Over the ragged furrows
of the old earth he has spread a cover of spotless white, and the well-worn foot-
path he has hidden beneath a snowy carpet-it seems a desecration to trample
under foot what is so pure and fragile. The winding stream, that fretted and
foamed in the driving rain, has been lulled to sleep beneath a silvery coverlet that
glistens and sparkles in the sunlight. The trees, whose lealless branches yesterday
reached out into the wintry sky, like beggars praying for clothing, have been
arrayed in robes of royalty. The old lone windmill, grim and melancholy sentry
of the campus, is shrouded in misty white. llow the sunbeams play upon the
shining guard net of the tennis court. Yonder, from a snowy foundation, rises the
great gray building-an old-world castle-its battlements and round towers
gleaming with light, its windows golden with the glow of the morning sun. No
shrub or weed is too poor to have a glory of its own. The little grove in the dis-
tance, with its radiance from dreamland, seems the home of light-footed fairies
and we listen for a sound of the fairy music. llut the law of nature is ceaseless
change. ls it because we know this beauty is a tleeting beauty, to soon vanish in
the warm' glow of the sun, that we rejoice in it with exulting gladness?
Zo the Seniors
OU stand at the base of a mountain
As the sun rises over the hillg
Behind you the valley is lying
In the mist of the morning still.
The valley behind you is charming,
And your steps on the grass fall light,
But high honor awaits on the mountain,
Would you linger here if you might?
Tho steep are the sides of the mountain
And tho mists enshroud the crest,
Yet forever does glory attend
The soul that shall do its best.
Then look to the light on the mountain top,
Think not of the valley or restg
Until all the mount is below you,
And triumphant you stand on the crest.
ANNA CATHARYN KRUSE
LICE lay down under the apple-tree, but only for a moment, for whom
should she see in the distance but her old friend the Rabbit. .Up she
jumped and ran after him as fast as she could. "I must catch him," she
said, "for he promised, some day, to take me to another Vtfonderlandf'
But no sooner were the words out of her mouth than the Rabbit popped
through a do-or, and poor Alice knew not what to do. "I'll pound on the door,"
she said, and pound she did, until you would think the inhabitants of Hades could
hear her. The Rabbit did, anyway, for he opened the door with great excite-
"Come on, if you're coming," he said. "You'll be left behind if you don't
keep forward heref, So Alice hurried in, but was stopped short by the Rabbit's
stepping in front of her and shouting out, "Look at the dirt you brought in.
Didn't you see the sign to leave your footprints on the sands, not on the Hoor?
You'll Catch it in General Ex."
Poor Alice was so frightened that she took out her very best handkerchief to
Wipe off her shoes. Meantime the Rabbit had scurried off down the hall. Alice
called and called and just started to run after him when she was stopped by a
queer-looking person with a white jacket, who said he was the Janitor and had
come to tell her no loud talking was permitted during school hours. She was
indeed frightened, but, not knowing which way to go, mustered up courage
enough to ask him, "VVould you please be kind enough to tell me which way I
ought to go from here ?"
"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," he replied.
But Alice did not know where she wanted to get to, so the Janitor suggested
that she see The Faculty, and immediately proceeded to lead her to a large room,
Where lt was assembled. lt proved to be nothing less than grave-looking Owls,
with great spreading wings, who opened their big, round eyes and bowed to her
profoundly, all uttering, in a deep voice, "Another one, another one, is added to
our fold." The largest one of all came towards her, asking how long she expected
to remain, and what she would like to study. Alice knew not what to say. So
the Great Owl asked her what she had studied already, but she was still too
frightened to reply. Indeed, she was more frightened than ever, for she saw
near her a great confusion of Maps, Themes, Dramas, Percentages and Interna-
tional Date Lines, all dancing together down the hall.
just at this critical moment, in whisked the Rabbit, carrying a huge bundle
of Grades. These he showed to all the Owls, who commented with many Oh's
and Ah's on the fifties, sixties and seventies, until Alice thought she would never,
in all her life, mention fifty, sixty, or seventy again. But then the Great Olwl
announced that they would go to General Ex. and bade Alice follow. She thought
of what the Rabbit had said to her, "You'll catch it in General Ex," and began to
No sooner had she seated herself among others that looked like real people,
when the Owls solemnly ascended the platform and began slowly flapping their
great wings, the Great Owl chanting, in a sort of monotone, "VVe will brood over
them, and brood over them, and brood over them. XiVe, that are old and wise, will
show them the way they should go. We will tell them to guard their tongues,
mind their own business, be reliable. We will tell them to be tidy, take off their
rubbers before entering the building, wipe their feet," and with that the Great
Owl glared at Alice with his great round eyes, so that her hair rose and took
Alice with it, clear out of her seat. But she soon calmed down when the Owls
began to seat themselves. Then, one by one, the Owls came foward, each flapping
its great wings and saying wise words to the awestruck students.
Wheii the Great Owl had dismissed them, and they were going out of the
door, Alice spied the Rabbit, but he seemed less in a hurry this time, so she asked
him what she should do next. "Come with me. I will show you some of the
landmarks,f' he said.
They had walked some distance, when there was heard such a volley of dire-
ful noises that Alice was afraid to go further, but the Rabbit told her they were
nearing the East Society Hall, and that was Ollly the chorus she heard. Upon
entering, Alice noticed a large wooden box in one corner. It seemed to be cov-
ered with locks. "NVhat is that ?" she asked.
"Oh, that is a prize the Ellwoods won from the Gliddens in a contest, and
they keep it locked out of sight of the Gliddensf'
From here they passed to a room where a girl, with a terrifying look on her
face, seemed to be in the act of killing another with a lead pencil, while the presid-
ing Owl looked on with grave amusement.
"Oh, will she kill her F" cried Alice in horror.
"She is only imitating Shylockf' replied the Rabbit. "Come on."
Passing to the Geography room, Alice saw, what seemed to her, pie crust,
rolled out thin, on eight or ten different boards. "Are they making pies P" she
asked, and. to tell the truth, she was somewhat disappointed when the Rabbit told
her they were only maps of her own country. A blue-eyed Owl hovered over
them as though it was afraid some little corner of Florida might be knocked off.
or perhaps the Rocky Mountains sent rolling on the floor.
Alice went to many rooms and thought it all very interesting, and wanted
still to go further, but a loud bell-as she thought-rang just then. She was about
to ask, "Oh, what is that ?" when the Rabbit seized her bv the arm and wildly
rushed with her down the hall, crying, in a shrill treble, "Hurry! hurry! That
is the voice of the Great Owl. It is five o'clock, and you must leave." So Alice,
in great excitement, ran through the door, falling head over heels on the Scrapers
outside, forgetting entirely to bid the kind Rabbit good-bye.

OMEN should have pockets. I have com-e to this conclusion after two
years' experience in a Normal School where five-sixths of the students
are young women. Do you ask why they should have pockets? Then
listen. Cn Monday we learn that a certain Miss X has lost two dollars-"Left
them on the washstand in the cloakroom and in live minutes could not find them."
Why were they not in her pocket? She had none. Cn Tuesday this notice is
read: "Lost-A valuable letter: finder please return to Miss Y." She, too, had
no pocket, it seems. Un Wecliiestlay the president of the institution says:
"Found-A purse containing some money and a railroad ticket: loser may get
the same by calling at the office," and with a despairing voice he concludes,
"Young ladies, why will you not have pockets in your gowns P"
Cn Thursday you may go to the Lost and Found Drawer in the Library.
There are handkerchiefs of all sizes, all patterns, some embroidered, some hem-
stitched, some with lace edges, some plain, some clean and some-not. There
are pencils, erasers, Grammar notebooks, bows of purple ribbon and perchance
one of olive green, and, honestly, even basket-ball tickets. In conclusion. I repeatr
VVomen should have pockets.

ETWEEN the night and the morning,
VVhile the eyes of the darkness glower
Comes a pause in the nights occupation,
That is known as the Dreamers hour.
I hear, in the silence about me,
The patter of many feet,
And sounds like the rustle of ghost's Wings
Come to me in my sleep.
From my bed I see in the dim light,
Crovvding the closet door,
The ghosts of the dogs and the kittens
I've dissected by the score.
The ghosts of crabs and of crayhsh,
Of turtles and snakes galore,
Of frogs and oysters and microbes,
And dozens on dozens more.
A rush from all the windows,
A sudden raid from the hallg
Thro the walls, the door, and ceiling
They enter, and cover all.
They creep and crawl on the table,
O'er the dresser, and up my chair.
If I try to move, they surround meg
They seem to be everywhere.
They hover about me, these ghost-forms,
Their hollow eyes glare into mine.
I must rise in haste and attack them,
To label, and sort, and define.
Do you think, O ghosts of the dead ones,
That because you have crowded my room,
And because of my sudden terror,
I shall help no more to their tomb?
I'll have you fast in my clutches,
For I feel not the least alarm,
And the pickling bottles stand ready,
With the Huid that works such charm.
For this, warn all of your brothers,
That soon they will share your fate "-
And then I awoke with a shudder,
'Twas seven, and breakfast was late.

reading a copy of the "Northern Illinois" for February, IQO2, when my eyes

Wliat an opportunity! Go I must, and in an incredibly short time I found
myself with a party of some ten or twelve others standing on the roof of the main
tower of the Normal building. Mr. Parson then gave us all a grand surprise:
former parties had traveled in rather prosaic style, but on his last trip he had
brought back, as a gift from Euclid twho, after much hard labor, had discovered
it in excavating some petrified axiomsl, Noah's Arc, and now. holding on fast to
the chord which was stretched between the ends of the arc, we waved good-bye
to the faces in the windows and started off. In spite of the antiquity of the arc.
we arrived at our destination in seemingly no time and landed at the extremity
of the Theorem of Limits, which at that point was really not quite solid, but we
reached the mainland without any mishaps. Referring to our guidebooks. we
found that Archimedes would meet us at the Intersection of Loci twhich only
means where the Little Locus Hows into the Big Locust 3 however, on arriving
there, we were told that he had gone off on a tangent and would return by the
indefinite line All after a while. lkfhile waiting, being Normal students, our
thoughts naturally turned to school work and we asked, "XYhere do the children
go to school?"
The page led us down a diagonal street to a circular plaza, in the center of
which rose a pentagonal building with triangular windows: everything was sug-
gestive of the science for which these people lived. Inside, the children were mold-
ing clay spheres, pyramids, cubes, cylinders, and the like. Uthers were taking'
lessons in water-color, making designs in which they had to arrange triangles.
squares, pentagons and hexagons. In the cooking school, the same idea was fol-
lowed out and we were served with hemispheres of delicious ices, circles of pie.
cubes of cake, and pyramids of pressed chicken. The cook's name was Perpendic-
ular Bisector and his wife's name was Diameter, which made me think of the
classical lady Demeter. The teachers name was Median, and once when Median
asked a little girl of English descent to construct some concentric circles, her
small brother called out, "Secant!" The teacher calmly knocked him off the
radius on which he was perched, and into the vertex he dropped with a bang, and
I awoke to hear the clock on the mantel chime out one o'clock.

With the wreath of fame,
When the dust of time lies 'round thee
Covering deep thy noble name,
May thy colors, Heating o'er thee,
Proudly greet the skyg
May thy motto, still before thee,
Lead thee on to service high.
In thy woods the birds are singing
'Mid the fragrant flowers,
And the gentle wind is bringing
Incense sweet from leafy bowers,
With wide meadows 'round thee lying,
Waving in the sun,
We'll remember thee with sighing,
VVhen our little journeys done.
When fond memories are calling
Hearts that long to stay,
And the shades of death are falling
O'er the sun-kissed hills of day,
Swiftly then our thoughts go flying
Through the gath'ring night,
Where the day in glory dying
Bathes thy -towers in golden light.
In a dream we'll Wander idly
Through thy stately halls,
And the light of truth eternal
Will be resting on thy walls.
But the voices that have praised thee
All will silent be,
For thy children will be dwellers
In the land of memory.
ODAY, in looking through a trunk tilled with old relics, a little banner
tumbled out from the rubbish. lt was crumpled, faded and discolored in
places, but it seemed to have once been yellow, and five magic letters still
retained enough of their original whiteness to be distinguishable. Away Hew
the years that had intervened since I was a girl at the N. I. S. N. S. 1 lived
over again that first day of all days when at eight o'clock, amid the din of ham-
mers and tools, school was commenced. Everything connected with that tirst
year stood out before me-the Italian workmen at the mosaic floors, the incon-
veniencies we enjoyed, the organization of innumerable clubs and societies, the
excitement of the first contest, the first football games, the first biological excur-
sion-the newness and strangeness of it all.
And then in panoramic view various pictures passed before me-the rioting
scene at the Halloween Party, happy juniors on junior Class Night, a crowd of
sleighriders and groups of skaters, merry girls piled in one room enjoying a
midnight spread or giving an impromptu minstrel show, tired girls plodding
home from school by the light of the moon-lugging half the library with them,
the club dining-room with its din of voices and laughter, the familiar winding
streets of the "Addition," the wooden bridge over a sluggish river, the plank
walks, the race track, the tennis courts, the glorious, brilliant coloring of the grove
in autumn, the gray Normal itself outlined against the sunset sky.
But these pictures passed swiftly by, and again l wildly waved this same
faded banner as the football boys drove Naperville from the field, or the basket
ball boys showed Qld Normal the game. .Xgain I danced around the blazing
windmill to the "E ya nikosokisf' and felt the awful suspense of waiting by the
footbridge until two o'clock in the morning for news from Kansas, and the wild
enthusiasm when it came. Again I marched up and down the streets to the tooting
of horns and beating of drums, and shouts of
"XVilliani Mofetl XVilliam Ray!
Williziiii, Vlfilliam Mofetlu
llut alas! it was but a discolored banner l was holding. 'llhese were but memoirs
of three years of school-life at the N. l. S. N. S. lfriiici. lillIl.l,ll'S.

HE opening sentence of last year's Norther is entirely appropriate, with a slight
change, for an introduction to this article. We are at last a three-year old and
the third crop is about ready to be harvested. Sixteen the first year, forty-nine
the second and fifty-eight the third,-not a bad showing, especially when the quality
of the graduates is taken into consideration. And from present indications the
public seems to want them. Heretofore we have had no unused remnant. All have
found places to exercise their talents. 'I he people seem to be finding out about
them and there are indications all through Northern Illinois that boards of education
are disposed to set up as a prerequisite of employment a fair degree of professional
preparation. This is a hopeful sign and augurs well for the schools.
We have had quite an enrollment of those who were not with us at our regular
sessions and we are claiming them as genuine kin-folk. They come to us only in
our summer term but they seem to be as loyal as though they were regularly enrolled
in the ordinary work of the school year. The Norther of Igor brought the summer
term record down to the time that it was issued, but since it appeared before the
beginning of the summer term of that year it could only venture upon some rather
general prophecies in respect to the probable attendance. One hundred eighty-tive
came to the regular summer term and two hundred to the institute which continued
through the first week of the summer term. From present indications the number
will be materially increased this summer. The institute will be held as heretofore
beginning june 23rd and continuing until the close of that week, and will probably
show about the same enrollment. One marked departure, however, is to be noted
in regard to the third session of our summer term. Heretofore it has continued
for five weeks only, but this year it will be lengthened by an additional week and
this will be the probable arrangement: A shortening of our school year is thereby
necessitated, hence the fall term which heretofore has been thirteen weeks will be
reduced to twelve. We shall begin as usual, however, with the last week of Septem-
ber and shall probably have a two weeks' vacation at the holidays. But of that
more anon. As the show people say, for particulars see posters and small bills.
Where is there a better place for a summer term than at llelialb? We are not
on the edge of the frigid zone but we certainly are in the cool july belt. As to our
August weather, the less said the better just nowg but then, you know, we have all
betaken ourselves to the cool places in August. Hence vihat do we care whether the
temperature runs high or low? ln a few brief years we shall have a shady avenue
extending from Park Avenue to the building. The elms on College Avenue are well
on their way already and just as soon as our new driveway is completed a double
row of elms will decorate the walk, and then it will be quite indifferent to us whether
the weather be warm or otherwise even in July. Of course we are pioneering a little
yet so far as mere physical conditions are concerned, but the pioneer stage in the
school work seems even now to belong to a remote antiquity.
And so we are full of good cheer. Everything seems happily conditioned and
the future appears to be big with promise.
