DR. JOHN W. COOK
ROM the time when we began to notice happenings in the school world,
one man has stood for us for what is progressive in public education. We
rejoice that the great Educational Association of America has recognized
his achievements in the development of schools, his large ideals for the minds
of men, and awarded him its highest honor. But to us as pupils he is some-
thing rmore than a normal school president or an educational leader. Sincere
in our admiration for him as these, yet our devotion is given to the Dr. Cook
we know, the friend of our noblest manhood and womanhood. As Freshmen
we stood in awe of himg as juniors we enjoyed, and as Seniors we loved him.
Gifted with rare power to see below misconceptions and unworthy ideals and
find nobleness in the most humble, he has met our faltering with his faith, has
believed in us against our own disbelief. Young hearted-so his face and spirit
reveal him. Much of the sunshine of our school world comes from his genial.
buoyant personality. One would say that he has absorbed the youthfulness
of the many hundreds of young people who have rejoiced to call him master.
As the weeks of our school life have become the months and the years, we
have felt a longing to tell what he has been to us. Now that the time has
come, in vain we seek for words. liut "dear teacher" will look behind the words
and see the aHection we feel but cannot tell.
f HEREYS a belted bee in the orehid's cup,

Wle children of men, we come and go
At somebodyis hestg how should we know,
Being only the children of men,
Vlfhenee we come or whither we go?
T But to some one of us, now and again, A
A vision may COINS in the sunshine, then
He shall see himself :is part of a plan
He has helped in the weaving since life began.
The shuttle isihidden, he knows not where,
But he shall know the shuttle is there.
Moved by some unseen immanent Hand-
He shall seek no more, but understand-
And the Cares all die that pride gave birth,
He turns with a larger thought to earth.
The vision hath had its ministry, 4
And he smiles to himself as he sees the bee,
The velvet bee in the orehid's cup,
Taking his tithes of his tenantry,
VVhile never a care in the world knows he,
i Wise bee.

Cora Glidden Switzer
"No work begun shall ever pause for death."
ND so the beautiful life of Mrs. Switzer, granted us for only a few short
years, still sweetens and strengthens, comforts and gladdens the lives of
those who were privileged to touch and mingle with it. To all con-
nected with the Normal School this privilege was granted in its fullness, for
Mrs. Switzer was ever the close companion and co-worker of her husband in
his varied interests there, and in the town a host of friends claimed and never
lacked a share in her broad sympathy and cheerful companionship.
Cora Glidden was born on the home farm west of De Kalb and here were
spent her girlhood and early womanhood until, impelled by that love of broader
culture, which was one of her striking characteristics, she went away to school.
She attended first the Normal School at Normal, Illinoisg then Stanford Uni-
versity, and, finally, Cornell, from which she was graduated in 1895. At Cornell
Miss Glidden and Mr. Switzer met and their acquaintance, begun there, was
consummated in the beautiful home life which former students recall with some-
thing akin to reverence as well as with appreciation, for its sweetness was shed
far beyond its own boundaries. I
The death of Mrs. Switzer on June 29, 1903, was peculiarly shocking be-
cause of its suddenness. It is still hard for her friends to be reconciled to her
loss, and yet with the sense of loneliness comes a feeling of gratitude, also, for
the life that has, by its sympathy and poise and dignity, and gladness withal,
made their own the better and brighter.

, CHAPTER l. .
I. Now in the days of the ninth month of the year one Thousand and nine
hundred and two, there came to the land of Normalskool a tribe of juneyers.
2. The land of Normalskool lay outside the walls of a smoky city, the in-
habitants whereof are makers of wire and they knew not the tribe of Juneyers
nor the fame thereof. A mighty palace of limestone fifty cubits long and thirty
cubits wide with towers and manifold battlements was the stronghold in the land.
3. In the palace dwelt a man of valor whose fame had gone far out into
the wilderness, and unto far cities, and who welcomed the tribe of Juneyers and
bade them tarry in the palace in the land of Normalskool.
4. This man was called King John. The inhabitants of the land find him
mighty in wisdom and great in heart and his name shall endure from generation
5. And when the Juneyers lifted up their eyes to look at the land wherein
they were to dwell, they were sore amazed at the many things that filled their
vision and confounded their thought.
6. A forest of great oaks lay to the southward. There was also in the
land a puddle known in the chronicles as a Lake. This lake was rich in Frogs-
eggs and Spirogyra. Verily it was of great value to the tribe of Juneyers.

7. The river Kishwaukee flowed through the land. No one of the tribe
could cross the Kishwaukee except he cross on a bridge of Pineplanks. Many
days' journey into the wilderness did the river flow with crooks and bends, but
the water therein was shallow, howbeit at some times of the year it became a
8. Now in the land there is a peculiar climate,such as there is in no other
land. Rain descends from the heavens in great measure and fair weather comes
not out of the north except on feast days and Saturdays. And it came to pass
that after a rain there was mud in the highways such that the Juneyers slipped
and fell therein. Verily the depth of it was as the depth of an overshoe and the
color as the black of night.
9. But the tribe of Juneyers had come to the land to seek after wisdom
and to be not as other children of men but to make for themselves a name of
greatness and to help to bring the light of knowledge into the dark lands of
Io. And each officer of King John took certain ones of the .tribe of Juneyers
and did guide them in the paths of learning. But verily these paths of learning
were both rocky and steep.
II. The Juneyers had over them an officer of Sikol-o-g, a man whose
beard is not as Aaror1's and whose hair is not yet turned grey on the top of his
head. His speech is not always dry, neither is it beyond the power of the
Juneyers to understand.

12. And there was yet another officer of Byol-o-g. A man who went as
with a terrible rush and did hold many irons in the fire and who showed the
,luneyers wonders and the names thereof. And it came to pass that some of the
wonders were of great age and had a smell as of stale flesh, and these things
were not seemly and they were a stench in the nostrils of the Iuneyers.
13. Now there were of officers of King John three and thirty and they
served the tribe of 'luneyers faithfully and did smite their brows when one of the
tribe did phlunk.
14. Now it came to pass in the twelfth month of that year a great dispute
arose among the Juneyers and other tribes that were in the land. And they
divided themselves into two bands, the band of Glid-Den and the band of L-wood.
So the band of Glid-Den and the band of L-wood disputed among themselves as
to which was the mightier. There were many mighty men of valor in both
bands, but it came to pass that the men of the band of L-wood had more wind
in their lungs and more matter in their craniums than did their adversaries, the
men of the band of Glid-Den. '
15. Now there was a judge over the band of L-wood and over the band
of Glid-Den, and he took the brazen image graven in the likeness of a valiant
man and gave it to the band of L-wood as a sign to all the tribes.
16. Then there was much joyful noise and much clamor and hubbub from
brass instruments and tinkling cymbals and horns of brass.
17. And the next day there was a commotion amongst the tribe of June-
yers, for the officers of the palace decreed that they should close the palace and
send all the tribes to their own country for the Christmas feast day.
18. So there was ordered a chariot to carry the tribe of Iuneyers to the
place of waiting for the caravan and the chariot was like unto a vegetable wagon
and the driver was like unto Jehu.

I. Now,9 after a time King John sent forth a proclamation that all should
come back to the palace. And they came back and were sent to a book of
parchment whereon was written much fine writing, written by a scribe. Verily
the fame of the book has gone far out into other countries, and the name thereof
2. Now there was snow and ice and sleet in the land at this season. Many
of the juneyers froze their ears and wished greatly they were back in the land
they had left.
3. For there were camps called Klubouses in which all the tribes had to
abide: and when there appeared before them a certain dish as they sat at meat,
the whole tribe rose up and shouted, Reviewofreviews! whichbeing interpreted
4. Now in the land of Normalskool there is mighty fear of iire, but the
Klubouses knew not the fear of fire. But it came to pass that in the Klubouse
called Hall there was a contiagration of great size, and in the Klubouse called
Tudor was a conflagration of less size but of great smoke, and it did create great
fear in the hearts of all the tribes.
5. Now there was in the depths of the palace a great place of combat with
many traps and doors and the officers of the palace called this the Jimnasy-um.
Here it was that the tribe of juneyers battled with other tribes on the held of
Basquit-Baal. , L

6. There is great skill and much zeal in Basquit-Baal, and many shekels
were dropped in at the door, for some times there were pitched battles in the
Jimnasy-um for which each man must give of his silver to see the fun. And
verily each one of the tribe of .luneyers was clad in garments of wonderful de-
sign and fearful make.
7. Now there came days of mighty toil and great honorgto the tribe, for
the oflicers of the palace did all that they could to make the tribe of Juneyers
mighty in wisdom. Only on the night of the sixth day of each week could any
man venture beyond his own camp. For verily there did dwell in the city those
who beguile the tribe and did teach them to do after all their abominations.
8. And there was a famine in the land like unto no famine before known
in Normalskool, for verily there was no coal with which to make a hot fire and
no manner of persuasion could make men bring coal to the palace.
9. And it was then that the chief ofhcer of Biol-o-g in the palace took sick
and so great was his sickness that King John was much alarmed and commanded
him to leave his Cy-Clops and his Vermes and depart for the Southland where
there was no famine and where the faithful Charlesfrederick recovered from his
IO. VVhile in the Southland he visited the land of Cuba, a country of much
fruit and many flowers. And when Charlesfrederick came back to the palace
he rose up in the sanctuary and told the tribes what he had seen and heard. And
King john was highly pleased with the words that he spake and said, Grandis-
somo, which being interpreted means, Go on.

I. Now on the first day of the fifth month of the year one thousand nine
hundred and three, there was a proclamation sent throughout the land to meet
in the sanctuary at evening time and listen to brass instruments and to many other
things of most unseemly character and frightful aspect. There were fair women
who sang unto the tribes with their backs to the men who listened. A man small
of body and with long hair made many motions before the people and did hop
up and down like unto a boy receiving chastisement, but no words came to their
ears from his lips.
2. Now about this time when all the tribes from the country met together
they chose one from the Normalskool to be a mighty speaker before other tribes.
Men loud of voice and deep of breath gathered from the land of the Yellow Sun-
Flower even to the land of Normalskool and met in the sanctuary and strove
with tongue and with great swayings of the anatomy to see who of the men
was the mightier. Now it came to pass that after the striving had ceased that
the wise ,judges decided the man from the country of the Sun-Flower was
mightier than all the others in speech and greater in the wavings of his hands.
3. But the tribe of ,luneyers could not in all completeness understand all
this, for another tribe called Seen Yours was in the land of Normalskool and
that tribe was in great favor with King john and knew of rights and ceremonies
of which the .luneyers knew nothing.

4. Now it came to pass that in the spring of the year there were many
strenuous days for the Iuneyers, and the warmth of the atmosphere and the
dullness of the books of parchment and the brightness of the stars at even time
did lead the .luneyers into temptation. And they strolled two and two down the
highways and along the river Kishwaukee and even to a fountain of sodawater,
and verily they strained their vision to gaze at the stars.
5. And it was not right in the eyes of King john nor in the eyes of his
officers, and it did make much talk in the sanctuary, for verily stargazing hath
no place in the path of learning when men do it by twos and twos.
6. The Seen Yours spoke of many things strange in the ears of Iuneyers
and they uttered the word Seeumgo, which being interpreted is Athletics. Now
in Athletics there are many parts as Phut Baal and Baal that is Base and Baal
that is Basquit.
7. And the officers of the land had built a place of assembly for the wor-
shipers of Phut Baal.
8. The place was built with boards of pine andno stone to be seen. And
the name of it was Grandstand, and they overlaid it with a coat of grey paint,
even as the color of a dove's wing.
9. Now there were many sheets of parchment to be written for one of the
officers. Each man had to write on these sheets even as a scribe must write, and
on some was written Tommy Rot and on some was written wisdom, and when
each one was finished the officer overlaid it with spots of the color of the blood
of an ox.

Io. And verily the
juneyers did many times view these parchments with
groanings and ashes in their shoes.
1I. The name of these parchments is Themes.
12. Now to the southward of the palace there is a great Qak Tree, and
one tribe known as Fresh took the Oak Tree as a strong place for themselves as
long as they dwelt in the land. And they piled great stones together and built
for themselves a seat whereon they might sit in summer time and hold converse
one with another.
13. And they sang songs of great loudness and spoke many things of
worth, but the tribe of juneyers looked on and seowled greatly for they loved
not the tribe of Fresh.
14. Verily the Juneyers did strive in these days among themselves to make
a great hullabaloo for to

a meeting of King John and his officers. Many hours
and behold the next day the tribes, meeting in the sane-
their own countries. For great was the heat in Normal-
skool and no ,luneyer or Seen Your stayed in the land if King John did not com-
mand him to stay.

I. Now it came to pass that when the Juneyers journeyed a second time
into the land of Normalskool, King john proclaimed that the name of the tribe
should be changed and that forever after they should be known in the Chronicles
as Seen Yours.
2. And the Seen Yours found great favor in the sight of King john and
the officers and he made a sign among them that all might know how King john
did put a difference between the juneyers and the tribe of Seen Yours. And the
Seen Yours said unto themselves, there is none like unto us, neither is there any
tribe of fame beside us, according to all that we have heard with our ears.
3. Now there came to the palace at this time two men. Une was like unto
David and the other was like unto jonathan, for verily they did love one another
exceedingly. And one did help Charlesfrederick in the Lab and the other did
teach the Seen Yours many things about the light of the heavens above and the
weight of the earth beneath.
4. Now many times were there sheckels promised with which to buy bricks
for the building of a highway, but for many months the sheckels were not forth-
coming. Nevertheless it came to pass in the course of the passing of time that men
brought many bricks and piled them by the roadway. And, there was much
digging and much talk that was good to the ears of all the tribes.

5. For now every man that was in the land nced not walk in the mud that
sticketh to the ankles, but upon the hard red bricks that cometh out of a far
country. And great was the rejoicing throughout all the land, for verily the
mud was an abomination to every one of the tribe of Fresh and Iuneyers and
of Seen Yours.
6. Now each day King john sent and gathered all the officers and helpers
of Normalskool and they went up into the sanctuary and all the people, great and
small, and King John read in their ears the words of a good book and spokehunto
them many things which he deemed worthy to be known. He spoke of the stars
in the heavens and of the moon and of the earth and of things not temporal,
but only in they minds and hearts of men.
7. Now on the hrst day of the New Year there was a proclamation that
all the tribes should work on that day. But the men of the tribes said, On all
other days will we labor and do all our work, but on the first day of the New
Year we wish to carouse and to go on a toot. And all the tribes in the land of
Normalskool made a supplication to the officers that they need not work on the
first day of the New Year, but the officers thought this was a snare and an
abomination and demanded that every one labor upon the first day of the New
8. And after a certain time each man of the tribe of Seen Yours wore a
pin upon his breast, and it was a sign to the Seen Yours forever.

9. Now it came to pass that the Seen Yours had need of many sheckels
and did much to bring these sheckels into the treasury. They made music upon
psaltries and cymbals and they made a play of love upon the stage. Much gold
and silver was brought into the treasury for verily the tribe loved the filthy lucre
and guarded it well.
IO. And at this time Charlesfrederick took unto himself a wife. Charles-
frederick had waited six and twenty months for his wife and great was his pride
11. Then came days when the Seen Yours had many tasks set before them
by King John and his officers. There was one of whom each must know, an
ancient man of fame called Rozenkranz, and those who could not learn of him
had to hold on with might to the tail of his garment.
12. And the Seen Yours and Juneyers dwelt safely every man under
his own vine and under his own fig tree which grew before his Klubhouse, dur-
ing all their days at Normalskool.
13. Now all the rest of the acts of the tribes at Normalskool are too num-
erous and of too great length to be written in the chronicles of the Seen Yours.
but verily their days there were full of labor and their nights of dreams and
14. And when they had tarried in the land for two years they took from
King john a piece of the skin of a sheep which had marks and signs inscribed
thereon, and they cherished the skin of the sheep as it had been of gold and they
took it and went far out from Normalskool into the wilderness and no man knows
what the end of them shall be.

enior Class Night
HE play given by the Seniors of '04 for their class night entertainment
was a rare delight to the large audience present. This comedy of Sheri-
den, "The Rivalsf, with its liveliness of plot, its variety of characters, its
fine wit and humor, is one of the most entertaining of dramas. Under the com-
petent supervision of Miss Farley, those whom she selected to give the play
made the most of their ability and each character was well sustained throughout.
Mrs. Malaprop kept the audience in laughter with her whimsicalities and
misapplied words, and her "hydrostatics" because her niece, Lydia, would not
"illiterate" from her mind that Ensign Beverly. Sir Anthony was at his best
even in his most frenzied moments. The audience enjoyed especially the dra-
matic scene between him and Captain Absolute, when, at the indifference with
which his son received the glowing account of his bride-to-be, Sir Anthony flew
into a paroxysm of anger, at the same time adjuring his son to keep cool as he
Was. Vlfhat the enraged Anthony was saying was lost in the applause of the
audience. Bob Acres required ingenious acting, but Mr. Keeler was equal to
the occasion. He was never at a loss for an expletive peculiar to himself as
"odds triggers and Hints," "odds levels and aims." Though feigning to be
very brave his extreme cowardice in the duel scene was amusingly evident.
Lydia and Captain Absolute were very natural. Lucy and Sir Lucius O'Trigger,
though of minor importance, were original in their acting. Lucy was ever the
shy, simple maid and Sir Lucius, seeking for something, he did not know what,
never caused any serious trouble. Fag and David were typical servants when-
ever they appeared, but each one was a distinct character.
The elaborate and appropriate costumes and the beautiful scenery added
to the vividness of the play, while the music rendered by the Normal Orchestra
between the acts made the evening a most enjoyable one.

And when at last the night was come,
Then with a vim they played:

Did see themselves arrayed.

CCORDING to the records of the N. l. S. N. S., the Freshmen, with the
loyal support of Mr. Charles, celebrated Freshman Class Day on VVednes-
day afternoon of Commencement week.
"On VVednesday afternoon let the people all come outg
Come and see what the 'Freshies' are aboutfy
The invitations which, true to the simplicity of the class, had been sent out on
leaves, brought a goodly gathering of visitors.
About 2 o'clock, the "Freshies," arrayed in rustic costume, marched to the
large burr oak tree near the main entrance of the campus. Beneath this tree,
which was soon to be dedicated to the class, a platform had been erected from
which a program was given behtting the unpretentious and humble Freshmen.
With a rousing song, written especially for the occasion, the solemnities began.
The Seniors responded with a cheer, lzut the unfriendly -lnniors looked on in
silence. VVhen the Seniors had ceased their clapping an oratorical contest
was announced. Mr. Lyons, with all the stateliness of a Senior, presented an
oration suited to Senior dignity. The junior orator had been so busy prepar-
ing for Junior Class Night that her speech seemed to the audience almost a
failure. However, she seemed sublimely unconscious of the fact. Lastly, Miss
Perry, the Freshman contestant, appeared and the decision of the judges showed
that she had won by several points. Songs and yells and speeches followed in
quick succession. Mr. Shea, after much eloquence. planted the ivy, which at
a future time was to twine about the class tree. Then a history of the class
was given by Miss li'olhenius and a prophecy by Miss Dewey.
Now came the Fates with the gifts, which Miss Collins presented to the
several members of the class with words of counsel and encouragement. The
Fates evidently knew the "l7reshies" well, for the gifts were peculiarly appro-
priate and suggestive.
'With a song and a yell this part of the program closed and the whole
company advanced to the rustic seat, which the lireshnien had erected as a
memento of their class. Here Mr. liarr, president of the class, gave an in-
spiring dedicatory address. Une more song, and the program ended. Realizing
that they could no longer be "l7reshies," heavy-hearted and loath to leave the
ranks, the lireshmen walked slowly honieward toward -luniordom.

hosts and Pump ins
HERE are two subjects in our literature which never fail to delight us in
childhood or in grown-up hood. VVe know the good place where Peter
Piper kept his wifeg we have gone to the Prince's ball with Cinderella
in her wonderful coach and shuddered with Tchabod Crane as he dodged the
terrible pumpkin head. Wlho has not enjoyed to the last cold shiver a ghost story
or encountered with unspeakable awe Hamlets ghost or the spooky visitor of
Doubtless it was for such eerie literary characteristics of the Halloween
party in the gymnasium that it is so vividly remembered. There were ghosts
enough abroad that night to keep the landlaelies in the Addition busy for a
week washing bedrabbled sheets and pillowcases, and pumpkins enough to make
pies to delight all the small boys of the neighborhood, and the Normal students
to boot. There were, too, pies and apples and cider-things that though neither
literary nor spooky are very good to have on Halloween or any other night.
The ghosts at our party were all strangers to one another-not having met
together before, since they entered the land of shades: hence there were some
mistakes made which could only be rectified by the lifting of a sheet or a peek
under a folded pillowcase. The grand march of the evening was a spooky suc-
cess, each ghost coming out where he was least wanted and turning in the
direction the leaders least wanted him to go. In fact, this diversion was so
violent that the ghosts flung off their garb of the grave and became even as they
were before leaving this carnal world.
Among the spooks was an orator of particular interest, short of stature and
sharp of tongue. He spoke of many things, both worldly and celestial. The
stamp of his feet and motion of his swaying arms might have been interpreted
by the stars as an invitation to come down from their place in the firmament
had not the gymnasium roof intervened. There, too, was one just returned from
the spirit world in order that he might procure more chalk with which to write
the enunteration of his sins. Sitting in the weird half light, surrounded by listen-
ing spooks, was a story-teller of rare fame and sepulchral voice, who told of a
strange, unearthly adventure. Nacbetlrs witches sang their ineantations while
the tire burned and the kettle boiled and their trouble doubled.
Finally sounds in the gym. died away. Wfhat had become of the shades?
Had they crossed the river with Charon? Had the cock crow' frightened them?
A mystery this must remain, but true it is that a tall janitor crossing the campus
on duty bent saw figures in ghostly garb descending the Normal hill.
And thus once more in the annals of literature did the ghost and pumpkin
appear and disappear-thus it was that a few people forgot work and worry
and formality for a little while and niade one more bright spot in the warp and
woof of life in a Normal School.

The Cool coiiegians
T IS doubtful which was the most amusing to watch, the Cool Collegians or
their audience. lt was on the evening of May .ith that this fun-inspiring
collection of the faculty assembled and dissembled upon the Auditorium stage.
The farce-comedy in itself was a funny one, but it was tenfold intensified
by the fact that dignified men of the faculty were "swirling" about in the silks
and piques of their contemporaries on the faculty from whom nine efforts of
fashion had been procured.
The plot was a simple one, in which Mr. Keith, as a gay, young student, fell
in love with Mr. Lohr, who daintily impersonated Mollie Vtfainwright, Fannie's
friend: Fanny being Alvin Farr, who was imported from the student body because
no member of the faculty would sacrifice a much-valued moustache for the honor
of a feminine role. Mrs. Huntoon, who hobbled about the stage on the feet of
Pepper and in the clothes of Mrs. Partridge, was certainly all that an old aunt
could be, "and then some," as we are wont to say in the vernacular of the Mosher
House. Prof. Charles made an excellent "coon," and his antics with Kate, alias
VVm. Crocker, were decidedly humorous and lively. Mr. Keith was assisted in
being cool by Mr. Stiness, the other Collegian.
There were spots in the play which will last long in the memory of the
audience. A sight never to be forgotten was when an imaginary mouse caused
Fanny and her aunt to assume positions on chairs which were effective from the
costumer's point of view, if from no other.
Mr. Keith exhibited an adaptability for proposing which argued much care-
ful training. In fact, the production may be pronounced a success, greatly con-
tributed to by the assistance of the Treble Clef.
Sonnet to Twilight
HE twilight shades steal softly o'er the earth,
From out a cloud the moonbeams brightly peep,
And blinking stars their faithful watches keep,
VVhile little waves dance merrily in mirth.
The trees outlined in black against the sky,
Cast gloomy shadows o'er the country road,
VVhich wanders on past many a quiet abode:
And evening breezes wander whispering by.
So in our lives the first gray touch of night
Gives us a sobered, joyous mood. The dream
Of youth is o'erg scenes of yore so bright
And full of joy must, like the sun's gold beams,
Vanish to brighten with reileeted light
The shadowed path of life and life's twilight.
ETHEL M. Courxrxs
CARCELY had departing Seniors, Juniors and Freshmen said their good-
bys, scarcely had the good housewives in the addition had time to set their
houses in order and put out their cards:
when the summer students began to arrive.
On Monday morning, June twenty-third, under a heavy sky, a long proces-
sion of dripping umbrellas began to move toward the Normal Building and the
Summer School was organized with the rain beating dismally against the win-
dows of the Study Hall and the pessimists prophesying that we should have the
weather of ,O2 repeated. But more gloomy even than the gray clouds were the
faces of those ambitious ones who had come expecting to take five, or possibly
six, courses, when they found that this would require twenty-live hours out of the
twenty-four for study and recitation. However, before the afternoon session be-
gan programmes had been satisfactorily arrangedp the sun was shining from a
clear sky and the soft, gray walls of our beautiful "Norman Castle" rose out of a
field of rain-gemnzed greeng old friends were greeting each other and strangers
were fast becoming friends.
And so the work began in good earnest. Wihen the enrollment was complete
the number reached three hundred eleven, thirty-five of these being old students.
The summer classes in biology, like all other classes that have gone before
them, struggled with the problems of how grasshoppers became green and how
giraffes gained their long necks. The wonder ul story of "the sporophyte that is
a parasite on the gametophyte of the lrlryopliyteu was told and retold. XVonder-
ful collections of plants and leaves were daily made and stored in the yvashbowls
of the cloak room much to the disgust of the janitors and the danger of the
Mr. Keith led the members of his Pedagogy class carefully and patiently up
The Five Formal Steps and then down again that they might know how to pro-
ceed from the particular to the general and lack from the general to the particular.
For others he enriched our familiar Dexter and tiiarlick with his marvelous dia-
grams and apt stories.
Mr. Page gave his Slavery Course, and fortunate were the summer students
who had put that course upon their programme. Events lgefore studied only in
their isolation now took on new nicaning as he traced their causes and their varied
Old students parsing the open door ef Room No. 16 could not easily become
accustomed to the sight of a gentleman presiding at the desk in the sunny south
room where they had always before seen our fairy-faced Miss Rice. lilut Mr.
Ridgley filled the place most admirably and his classes were very interesting and
instructive. while the excursions that he planned came as pleasant recreation in
the ordinary routine of class room work.
Miss Potter, Miss Simonson, Miss Patton, Miss Farley, Miss Stratford and
Miss Htiff were at their respective posts of duty during the sumiuer and won many
, SQ , W
new friends by their genuine interest and courtesy no less than by their skillful
teaching. Miss Stoddard filled the place of Miss Parnielee, who took a well-earned
vacation in the East during the summer. Miss Foster organized three classes in
Schoolroom Theory, beside the large class that she conducted in regular gymna-
sium work. The skeleton, relieved of its head, was brought up from the laboratory
to room 27, where it assisted Miss Foster in her work and helped prospective teach-
ers of school room gymnastics to locate the various levers of the body.
Every forenoon of the term Mrs. McMurry talked with large classes of pri-
mary teachers in her motherly way of how to teach and train the little ones. Strange
as it may seem, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, St. Valentine's day and
VVashington's Birthday all came during the summer school, and wonderful were
the displays of Puritan hats, paper stockings, hearts and hatchets that covered
the kindergarten tables in the lecture room on these holidays. Mr. Hatch and
Miss Jenkins had charge of intermediate and grammar grade work.
The hour for general exercises was always looked forward to with pleasant
anticipation. A number of interesting lectures had been arranged for. The
first of these was given by Mr. Hatch, of Oak Park. Supt. Frank Hall, of
Aurora, talked on Agriculture, unfolding the wonderful story of clover and
the value of leguminous plants in general, till at the close Dr. Cook enthu-
siastically remarked, "It's worth while to know beans, young people." Mrs.
Bright, of Chicago, gave two talks on schoolroom decoration, in which she was
true to her name, and Mr. Kern, of VVinnebago, told us of his plans for bring-
ing beauty and fullness into the lives of country children. Miss Milner gave a
series of interesting library talks, Rev. Horn took us on a tour through Yellow-
stone and Rev. Tompkins gave us a lecture on Emerson. Other well-known and
interesting people called upon us during the term and spoke at general exercises.
Among these was Dr. Brown of the University of California, distinguished for
us as the only student to whom Dr. Cook ever gave a ten. On other mornings we
were entertained with musical programmes or with readings by Miss Earley.
On the evening of July ninth the telegraph wires liashed us a message from
Boston that sent a thrill of joy and pride through every student's heart. john VV.
Cook of Illinois, our Dr. Cook, had been chosen president of the National Educa-
tional Association for the ensuing year. Monday morning brought him back to
us from the great gathering and again he stood in the familiar place at the little
desk to read the announcements for the day and lead in the devotional exercises.
Then the enthusiasm of the school found expression in cheers and in the singing
of "Tllinois,', while we rejoiced together in this testimony which the educational
world has given to the man whom we are proud to call "our president"g the man
whom we are learning to value more highly and respect more profoundly as the
days go by, the man who is to us most inspiring as a teacher, most wise as a coun-
selor, and most genial as a friend.
At four o'clock, on july thirty-first, the Summer Term closed and good-bys
were reluctantly said. Not till September had brought the children together again
in modern city school buildings and lonely country districts in many parts of our
great state could the real work of this term appear. Then three hundred teachers
were able to bring to these children many bright little songs and games, new work
to train the busy fingers, better methods of instruction for the growing minds, and,
above all, more sympathetic and understanding hearts because of the Summer
School of IQO3' jisssnz R. TYTANN.

' TRAVEL SECTION
VERY Tuesday evening from six-thirty to seven-thirty, during the fall and
winter terms, the Travel Section has met with Miss Vifeller. After spend-
ing a few weeks with julian Ralph on a trip down the Mississippi river
and in the ever delightful and quaint old city of New Orleans, we left our
own country and vvent across the water to visit the land of dikes, wind-mills
and canals. VVhy does this little country, with its air of monotony, its indus-
trious and prosaic people, have such a fascination for us Americans? VVe found
much to wonder at, and much to admire in a people who, under the greatest
of natural disadvantages have accomplished such wonders.
VVe then spent some time in the Rhine country, getting glimpses by the
way of thriving towns, the vine covered hills and the old castles famous in
myth and legend. This great river, with its valley, forming the gateway into
central Europe, is always full of interest to the traveler.
During the last weeks of the term we went with "The l,ightning Con-
ductor" on a motor-car from the south of England over to Paris, and then
through the provinces of southern France, visiting many old castles and places
of historical interest by the way. Our journey took us through Bordeaux, along
the shores of the beautiful Gulf of Lyon, to Monaco: then into Italy and south
through Rome and Naples to the less frequented island of Sicily. The bright
and spicy letters of the typically American Molly Randolph and the pretty ro-
mance which developed on the way made our journey a very attractive one.
CURRENT NEWS SECTION
I-IE Literature and Current News section spent most of the year with two
great leaders in the work of the world today. In The Making of an
American they came under the charm of jacob Riis's style, fresh, frank,
sincere, as he told his own story-the story of a large-hearted, loyal son of Den-
mark growing into a loyal American citizen striking valiant blows like a true
Viking for justice and right. ln llooker lVashington's Vp From Slavery the
readers followed the life-story of another alien, though born on American soil-
a story of high purpose and wonderful achievement, full of promise for the up-
lifting of a race. More even than these' stories of human endeavor in the big
world the members enjoyed each other in their own familiar circle.
HAT a merry group of girls, and what good times we havel NVho?
VVhen? Where? I Xthy, at the Magazine Section, which meets every
VVednesday night for an hour with Miss l'otter.
Should we take a peep at this gathering, we should see a picture something
like this: Girls seated in a circle, some in chairs, others on the lloor, nearly all
busy with their needle. Now one reads an entertaining short story by a popular
author of the day, or another gives a review of the current topics, which all
discuss, or perhaps a biographical sketch of sonie noted person, or another short
story: and sometimes a magazine review is given. Although the programs are
varied, still the object of these gatherings is to keep us in touch with the current
events and add social life to the lmmdrum hours of study. Thus the hour of
recreation is spent profitably, enjoyed by all, and the next meeting eagerly looked
L. R. LANGWORTHY
I-IEN the clock struck twelve on Christmas eve, the mysterious time
when all things have the power of speech, there was a strange stir in
the East Society I-Iall. Could it be true? Yes, the cherubs were
flying down from the frieze to the platform. There they danced about Perseus
crying, "VVake up, Perseus." "Tell us about it, you know you promisedf,
Perseus awoke and looked down upon the merry group around him. "Hush,
you are worse than those students. Sit down and be quiet and I will tell you all
that has happened since I left you."
After some pushing and scrambling to get nearest Perseus, the cherubs
quietly sat about his feet, and with clasped hands and wide open eyes listened
to his story.
i "Let me seeg where shall I begin? O, yes. You remember the song the
Ellwoods practiced up here? Well, they sang that in the auditorium that morn-
ing, and rocked and dandled me like a baby in their arms-me, who slew the
Medusa. I was so ashamed that I longed for my invisible helmet.
"But worse was to come. Early one morning I was taken out by a Glidden
and dressed in a green pallium. But I think they must have cut it without a
pattern, for it was not like the approved fashion in Athens. lVhen the Ell-
woods were seated in the auditorium that morning the Gliddens came marching
in with purple flying, singing 'The Gliddens Are Coming, I-Io! Hoi' It was fine!
My blood leaped and I wanted to get out and lead the Ellwoods against them,
when suddenly a Glidden caught me and held me up before all those Iillwoods
and made them believe I was singing a coon song as an insult to my society.
These Americans have no respect for the honor and dignity of an ancient hero.
"After this, things were compiratively quiet. I heard whispers that the
Gliddens were lost and were being searched for with a microscope. and that
the Ellwoods were snowed under. I do not believe there was much truth in
these rumors, for both the green an.l the purple were out in full force on con-
"That was a grand night. One side of the auditorium was decorated in
purple and the other side in green. I had the place of honor on the platform.
Ilehind me sat those who were to light the battle of the societies. The Ellwoods
took their places on one side and the tiliddens on the other. I looked down
upon a brilliant sea of color. liach champion was cheered until the building
fairly shook. I could hardly keep my place. Three thousand years ago I
couldn't have believed l could get so excited over a battle of words.
"At last they quieted down and the first battle was on. There were four
in this combat. .Ns nearly as I could make out, they were fighting over trade
unions, whatever they maybe. The combatants were very much in earnest and
so were the listening people below. Then two maidens sang against each other.
I should have liked to have them keep on all night. Two other maidens came
before the people and read something about children and old country roads.
andthe audience clapped so enthusiastically that what they read must have
been good. Wie were made merry, then sad. as we listened to the sweet and
lively or sad and solemn music that filled the room. I am sure Apollo could
not have made sweeter music than came from the touch of the fingers of two
musicians. No, they didn't play on the lyre, but on a piano like this one.
VVhen I listened to the orators, I wondered if Demosthenes had crossed the
Styx to train them.
"The strange thing about this combat was that no one knew who had won
until all was over, when the victors' names were read from a little piece of
paper. Four of the tive battles fought were won by the Gliddens, so I found
myself a Glidden. I suppose it is all for the best. Certainly purple is a more
royal color than green. I am sure I shall be proud of my new society in the
year to come, for they gave me a hearty welcome, which promised great things.
I was held up before the whole audience and welcomed with this speech. I
thought it so fine that I learned it by heart:
" 'VVell, Perseus, you are ours! For two long years you have worn green
and now we are sure you are glad to wear the royal purple. Iiut, Perseus, you
represent an endless amount of work and cost. On your account the library
has several times been toted to different parts of the Addition, the atmosphere
for blocks around has been kept in vibration by the vocalists, this room has
been filled dozens of times by orators and debaters, yea. scores of times have
its walls echoed to convincing argument, tales of distress or words of golden
eloquence. And Perseus, think of the energy used in memorizing all those
words. But, besides this work, there is the cost, the principal items of which
are midnight oil, red ink, piano tuning, tin types and the repairing of cracked
plaster and fractured ear drums. Perseus, you stand for victory, not in the
way of plunder or booty, but in the glorious modern way--victory in a battle
which both sides win, for there are such battles. If victory is mastery, success
in overcoming obstacles, then both Gliddens and Ellwoods have won, for they
have conquered difficulty after difficulty, and all who contested are nobler and
richer for meeting and mastering the tasks before them. But, Perseus. for the
coming year you are ours and right gladly do we welcome you and royally may
you dwell among us, the Gliddensf F'
A sigh went around the group of Cherubs when Perseus finished. Then,
with a startled cry, "It's almost daylight," they liew back to their places in the
frieze and quiet reigned once more in the East Society Hall.
Theres a big time coming soon,
you all must know,
still will be an Ellwood,
Yes there is, yes there is.
Then the Ellwoods how they'll boom,
Yes they will, yes they will.
VVhen the purples meet the greens,
And the green will sweep things clean
Watcll the Ellwood faces beam,
For they will, yes they will,
Just you watch our faces beam.
For they Will.
2. There'll be shouting and be cheering,
Far and wide, far and wide.
There'll be winning and be losing
Gn each side, on each side.
But the last
For it surely will be so,
Yes he will, yes he will,
For he'd rather be an Ellwoocl,
Yes he would.
3. But the Gliclclens must not weep,
It won't do, it won't do.
But come out of your long sleep,
All of you, all of you.
Try your best to reach our height,
Although we're nearly out of sight,
And we soon must take our flight
From your view, from your view.
Yes we soon must take our Hight
From your view.
I. Green, Green, Green, I wish my color would fade.
Green, Green, Green, I want a different shade.
Green, Green, Green, morning, night between,
I wish I was a purplestead of a Green, Green, Green.
Because green is my color
I'm feeling mighty mean!
My life's an awful burden
And I'm ashamed to be seen.
Wlieii first I was an Ellwood
I thought I'd happy be,
But now I'm broken-hearted,
As you can plainly see.
CHO.-GYCC11, Green, Green, etc.
3. l'm sick of this bilious color,
And now I want some style.
If I could dress in purple
l'd be happy all the while.
Though the lfllwoods are conceited
They're nothing to be feared.
All their plans of victory
By Gliddens will be queered.
Cuo.-Green, Green, Green, etc.

HEN the Young VVomen's Christian Association
reorganized last Fall, it was decided best to have a
central idea or theme for the coming year's work
-Christian culture among women. Witli the thought in
mind that the first requisite of Christian culture is kindness,
thoughtfulness and love for others, the Young XVomen's
Christian Association has been quietly, slowly, it may be, but
steadily progressing. Only those regulations and aims of
the National Society were adopted which seemed applicable
to the needs of our vicinity.
During the first term some phase of Christian culture
among women was taken up at each meeting. Hymns and
hymnology was the special subject during the winter term.
As an introduction to this study, several of our pastors gave
their personal views on hymnology. Later members of the
Faculty and others gave interesting talks in the weekly gath-
erings about their favorite hymns and why they were so.
At the State Young VVomen's Christian Association
convention held last October, this Association was repre-
sented by two delegates. They brought aback many encour-
aging reports of the other societies and many helpful sug-

he Inter-State ratorical Contest
INCI2 joining the State Inter-Normal Oratorical League, three years ago,
we have had the honor to represent Illinois at the Interstate Contest each
year. In two of these contests we have taken honors. XYe do not boast
on this account, but we are enabled to receive the congratulations of our friends
with a degree of composure that would not otherwise be possible. The live
contestants participating in this contest represent a body of about seven thousand
students. It becomes quite significant, therefore, to win an honor in such a com-
pany. It is generally conceded that oratory more naturally belongs to men than
to women. On this account Miss ISryant's victory at Cedar Falls becomes more
significant still. That is not all. The subject of the oration is generally thought
to be outside of the regular line of winning contest orations. It will be noticed
that most of the orations in such contests are about great historic characters.
whose iniiuence has been traced and whose fame has been sung again and again.
"The Vlfestern Pioneer" is, therefore, not an attractive subject. To treat it ade-
quately a new line of treatment must be undertaken. It compelled originality.
There was a temptation to run into the picturesque and the novel, to attract the
curious. All of that was avoided and we have a dignified appeal for the recog-
nition of the work of one of the most important factors in our American civiliza-
tion. In fact, the American pioneer spirit gives us whatever of national dis-
tinctiveness we have. Our Americanism traces to that as its source.
A genuine oration has a cause to plead. It is prophetic rather than historic.
It has its foundation in the emotions. To write an oration, then, is not so much
an intellectual achievement merely as the expression of a fervent emotional exper-
ience on account of some righteous cause. To deliver an oration is not simply
to enunciate distinctly, to gesture gracefully, nor to look pretty, but to be trans-
formed into a messenger of truth whose mission is to deliver a divine message.
To say that all of this and niore was done in "The IVestern Pioneer" is not
merely a high compliment to Miss Bryant: it is the truth.
fTo the tune of Dolly Gravy
E ARE students brave and true, Illinois,
And we pledge our love to you, Illinoisg
We cannot forget your fame.
We'll preserve your honored name,
VVith Bryant as our leader, Illinois.
Don't you hear the tramp of feet, Illinois,
Sounding through the busy street, Illinois?
'Tis the niareh of students true,
Going forth to win for you
Honors fresh and laurels new, Illinois.
I-Iello, Iowa! Do you hear us?
Does it break your heart to know
VVC are coming for to do you all up brown before we go?
For we'll have your sealps a-dangling,
And you won't know what to say,
Wlieii you see our girl a-eo1ning--
Wateli out! Iowa!
I-Iear the tooting of our horns, Iowa,
XVe have come to take the cake, Iowa.
To your lovely face so fair, we will give a look of care
For our girl will beat your boy, Iowa.
She will surely beat your boy- Iowa,
In the fight for Illinois, Iowa.
She will down XViseonsin, too,
Iileecling Kansas will look blue,
And sl1e'll do up old Missouri, Iowa.
A Rude Rhythm
ITH music loud we come, with horns and songs,
VVe come back from Iowa to sing not only our victories, but our defeats
VVe had our victories: we had our defeats-we celebrate them both.
Wliy did we go to Iowa?
To enter our orator against the orators from other States:
To put our athletes against their athletes:
To put our baseball men against their baseball men:
To play basketball with tliemg to play tennis with them-
To show them what our Normal School could do.
VVe were both victorious and vanquished.
We rejoice in both.
Did our girl not win honor in the contest?
VVe did "take the cake" from Iowa, then, sure.
VVe did "do those fellows up so bad" in tennis.
VVhat if we didn't make scores in the track meet?
VVhat if the basketball was against us?
Wliat if baseball didn't bring us a victory?
Didn't we hght well? Didnt we show our spirit?
Didnt we accept defeat with manliness and courage?
Didn't we play our game on the square?
VVe tasted the sweetness of victory:
We know the bitterness of defeat-
But we come back unashamed, undismayed.
VVe have an honorable record to show you:
Qur banner is still unsmirehed.
VVe are proud of our orator, proud of our courageous boys,
Proud of our loyal girls, aye, and proud of our faculty.
We are glad to get back to our own-
We would rather belong to the N. I. S. N. S. and be defeated
Than belong to any other school with victorious athletes.
he Western Pioneer
ACRIFICE is the price of progress. The Canaan for a race costs a long
wandering in the wilderness. One thinker drinks the cup of hemlock, and
a new realm of thought is opened to mankind. The Christ bears his cross
up Calvary's hill, and men know the law of human brotherhood. One man stands
alone in thought, ventures upon an unknown sea, dies dishonored, and civilization
transcends the bounds of Europe. A consecrated band of Pilgrims cross a danger-
ous ocean, face a bleak and untried land, and lo, we have American freedom and
Too long unsung is the story of the western pioneer. His like there was in
the ancient world when Ulysses launched his boat upon the western wave, fired
with the passion
"To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars."
His like there was in Europe in the days when the restless Teuton, leaving the
primitive village by the North Sea, crossed the stormy waves to win by slow,
unceasing effort, the land destined to be the home of the Anglo-Saxon race. As
the sea called the men of the old world to undiscovered lands, now the undulant
prairies of the new, lured men to the unknown west. Vast, inert, and mysterious
was the wide expanse before them. To win it for the cross, the .lesnit Father
had come a century before and found a martyr's death: to give it to France and
his king, La Salle had braved its terrors and yielded it another grave. But un-
broken still, untouched by art or commerce, were the new land's plains and native
Some restless hunter with the roving spirit of a Daniel lloone or a Roger
Clarke, tired by a desire to know what lay beyond in the land of the setting sun,
sought to explore the untamed western wilderness. llurning with a iierce courage,
festive of the growing numbers of his kind, the western trapper entered this
wilderness, where nature was wild and stern, where man and beast were alike his
enemy. But scornfnl of danger, "all daring, all enduring," he blazed his way from
the Alleghanies to the Rockies. A forerunner of civilization, he never stayed to
reap the harvest of his toil. llarely opening his little clearing and building his
rude log-house, he left for others the new land he had opened to civilization and
once more took up the trail.
lt was the trapper's tales of the rolling prairies, the running waters, the
limitless hunting grounds and boundless forests that lay beyond the mountains,
which Hrst tempted the dweller on the Atlantic coast to cross the traekless wilder-
ness. As he traversed mountain and plain at the slow pace of the pack-horse or
exhausted ox-team. the golden mirage in the western horizon lured and cheered
nm on. l2IlI'ldlL1l were the processions of white-topped prairie schooners that
-l l 3'-
crossed these trackless plains of the middle west. Bringing his slender outfit,
this traveler from the east sought a new home and rich lands where he might rear
his children in the midst of untold promise. Not a shrewd, bartering trapper, not
a restless, roving hunter, but a "man of the ax and rifle," a feller of the trees, a
tiller of the soil, who dwelt with his wife and children on a rude little farm sur-
rounded by forest or open prairie,-such was the typical pioneer of the west.
Hard and unrelenting was this wilderness expanse. He who would succeed
in it must bow to its demands, must leave behind the earlier life of ease and cul-
ture to live one of exile-primitive in its simplicity and hardship. He obtains
his meat by his rifle, grinds his own meal, cards, spins, and weaves for his cloth-
ing. He feels the terror of the red-man: he sees the prairie fire destroy the work
of years, or the freshet take his crop, he knows the pangs of hunger and the
numbness of cold: helpless he sees Death take wife or child. But neither sickness
nor famine, freshet nor fire, Indian onslaught, nor natnre's rebellion could check
the westward march to a victory far greater than the mightiest martial triumph.
Sharing with the settler in his struggle and victory was another-the wife
of the pioneer. Resolutely she faced the hardships of the overland journey and
crossed the plains in the prairie schooner. Though the trail was marked by her
baby's grave, yet strong in spirit, brave in hope, she cheerfully entered the deso-
late midst of a virgin land. Steadfastly subduing her longings for the old New
England home, she silently bore the loneliness, the utter isolation of the new life.
NVorking at the dawn and in the dusk of eve, giving to the settler's cabin, by her
simple unconscious devotion, the charm that made it home, making the mother's
sacrifice for the larger future of her children, the pioneer wife became the
spiritual leaven of the new life.
The spiritual leaven demanded a new type of pioneer, for the religion which
upheld the Puritan of early colonial days became the strength of the hardy col-
onists of the west. Rude and uncouth was the staunch old circuit-rider. He was,
like Saul of Tarsus, a missionary. Foot-sore or weary of guiding his faithful
pack-horse, facing the cold and snow of winter or the fever and heat of summer.
fording the swollen streams, a mark for the Indians rifle-he carried a message of
light to a chosen people. In some cabin home or school house, or under the shelter
of the forest trees, this faithful servant preached the word of God in the spirit of
the zealous men of old. The pioneer preacher who rode these prairies was
strong in purpose, rich in love for his brother, a maniof heroic mould, indeed:
and to his self-sacrifice, to his life service were due the inspirations to righteous
living and the high morality of the early west.
This vigorous, fervent spirit touched every phase of pioneer life. ln this
boundless west men sought the end of vague, yet century-old ambitions. Despite
adverse conditions, the love for learning was undimmed. Soon log school-
houses dotted the rolling prairies, the village store at the cross-roads
opened its friendly doors and the little church with its steeple became the land-
ETHEL FRANK BRYANT
mark for miles around. Little more than a hundred years ago the bear and the
buffalo roamed here at will, "the smoke of the tepee crawled skyward," and the
Indian chief was monarch. The spirit awakened by a Daniel Boone and a Roger
Clarke has worked for a century, and today the laughter of children is heard
where the savage war-cry rangg the great mills hum where the wolf once howled,
and homes of industry and culture have replaced the Indian wigwam. The dawn
of a new day for the middle west has passed and the changes which the century
has wrought are but the results of the pioneer's humble beginning.
In the brightness of our nation's noonday this central west wields a great
power of which the humble pioneer knew nothing. As he set forth to make his
western home, as he toiled, and as he shaped the new life of these prairies, un-
consciously he wrought a continental destiny. Upon the middle west the advance
of all American institutions has been dependent. From her ranks have come
modern statesmen, schoolinasters of a new learning, great commercial giants who
control our trade. In time of need she has sent forth brave leaders-Andrew
Jackson, Grant, Logan, Lincoln. To the army of the Republic during the Civil
War she gave one-third its strength. Experienced and robust from her frontier
defense, taught by her every day life to despise both danger and hardship, she
proved on the Held of battle that though the nations capital fall captive to seces-
sion, into the middle west that captivity should never come.
To such a spirit as the pioneer's may both Europe and America turn for the
source of national democracy. The modern American is as thoroughly a prod-
uct of the west as of the east. Restless in his energy, brave in his self-reliance,
broad in his wisdom, on a clean page of history he is writing a new record of
mankind. Though the wilderness has been made "to blossom as the rose," though
the frontier has become the Grient, in other lines the pioneer spirit still works. To
that spirit we owe our advance in science, our' progress in invention, and our
daring in commercial enterprise. What the west of today is, we who live on its
prairies know. VVhat the west of a hundred years ago was, we who live in the
midst of a country bound together to remotest part by telegraph and railroad, in
the midst of cities noisy with factory din, or near the mine with its roar of
blasting, its thousands of workmen--what that west was we can never know.
The wilderness was pierced, the way was opened, the great westward march of
civilization began, destined to move on till the ocean itself interposed.
The work of the pioneer is done. It has in it neither the pathos of a Valley
Forge nor the tragedy of a Gettysburg. "Not with observation" came his vic-
tory over nature's forces, and he gave to us a nation, strong in the strength of
its freedom, rich in its untold promise. From the old days to the new, from the
thirteen colonies to a United States, the time has been short in years, but it has
covered centuries of progress. The cost of this progress, the untold weariness
and sacrifice of the brave men and women who made it possible, are known
only by the fireside tale. It was not the work of a few great souls, to the
hundreds is our tribute due-to the heroic men and Women of common life. It
is iitting that we chronicle the deegls of our generals and give praise to our
statesmen-let the nation build for them her monuments of granite. But for the
unconscious hero of these plains there exists a memorial far more lasting and
significant than written record, or bronze or marble statue. For warm and
vibrant, the teeming life of our Western prairies will endure with the endurance
of a nation--a civilization which is the hope of the world-a civilization whose
founder and soul was the western pioneer.

AVENVI' you been out there?
Well, I declare! Been on the
books for eight months, and
let the big mundane ball roll over
twice one hundred times, and then
more, and you've done no more than
wear a path from your room at the
club straight to your appointed seat
in the class room! I can scarcely be-
lieve it, but then I know two seniors,
-three year coursers at that-who
A have never walked over to the copse
where the wild crabs pour their of-
fering of fragrance and bloom out
upon the campus. And hist! Sh!
It is rumored that there are dignia
taries about who have never visited the Normal pond, never rested on the
"Freshman" seat of '05, never trod the lzanks of the winding "tributary." In
the mill of routine we grind until on Commencement Day we awake to find how
much we've left undone, how many privileges we have failed to honor.
What P-oh yes, you're right, I was going to
tell you about our friends the animals. Come out
with nie, and be introduced to Dick and Katrina and
their fellow denizens of the Zoo.
Heres a neat building, just north of the llio-
logical Laboratory, about l2X3O in size: a wire en-
closure, boarded on three sides in winter, well
roofed, shingled and paintedg a burrow-proof Hoof
of historic planks Cthat brick pavement is a latter
day improvement, you knowjl carpeted with dirt
and sawdust. ,
This airy tenement house was built at slight
expense through the planning of Nr. hleliend, Nr.
Charles and Mr. Hatch. Faculty and students
played a "Zoo benehtn game of basket hall to swell
the limited funds available. Jim and Mr. Hatch
worked with the carpenter during the summer.
Long jim is indispensable. The animals and the plants claim him as their friend3
they demand his services every day. Those mosaic lloors are spotless, though,
I wonder how he tinds the time. He must be as busy as the Gliddens since the
piano delicit was mentioned. They-what? Oh yes. VVell, before we had this
building we had two small cages built against the brick wall in a sheltered cor-
ner. lt all happened in this way. lt seems that the biology professor was much
given to taining wild animals,-grew up with them, you
know, used to tame snakes for the neighbor boys at a
cent a week per snake. A big fox snake, four-footer, was
captured on the campus and brought to the laboratory.
You couldn't tell it from a spotted adderg-no, spotted
adders aren't poisonous, but crczzse me! VVell, Mr.
Charles let the snake bite him once, punished it for doing
so, and within a week it was so tame that it would lie
quietly in one's hands and drink water from the faucet.
That's doing pretty well, for a snake, isn't it? The sev-
eral mouse-traps that the building affords kept His
Snakeship's cupboard well supplied. Every girl in the
laboratory used to take the snake from its cage and
handle it, and there's no end to the snake stories they have to tell.
Then there was a large toad that liked to be carried about on someone's hand
while he picked flies from the windows. Several other small animals were tamed
and housed in the laboratory, and when it became noised about that the school
was building up a collection, many contributions were offered and the Zoo grew
Don't you know that squeak? Sounds like a family of diminutive porkers,
doesn't it? Guinea pigs, you knowg yellow and white, the Normal colors. They
don't know much, but it's fun to hear them grunt and squeak, and it's no bother
at all to keep them.
Those little fellows over in the corner? VVhy, those are flying squirrels!
See how tame they are! And they're the dearest little companions you ever saw.
They're most affectionate and intelligent, and you can teach them all sorts of lit-
tle tricks if you get them when they are young and deal with them when
they are hungry. Didnit you ever see one fly in the woods from the top
of a tree to the trunk of a neighboring forest giant? Then youlve missed a
Those big red squirrels applied for admission to the Normal-tried to get
in through the windows, and .lim and Mr. Shoop made them welcome. They,
too, are very tame. but how they do sputter and flare their bushy tails when a
clog comes near! They are such social fellows. How I wish we had families of
them living in the trees along the streets.
Jerry, down there, is one of the patriarchs of the Zoo. He's a study in black
and white and for a common every-day rabbit he's a treasure. I wonder how
many times the reliable old fellow has been sketched by the boys and girls in the
class room. That big red one is a Belgian hare and seems to quite over-awe his
room-mate, Baby Cotton-tail of prairie renown.

Qf course no Zoo, especially a state Zoo, could be

That no furrin nation can iver inveigle
Or throw salt on his beautiful tail."
We had an eagle here for some time but as we did
have suitable quarters for him it proved to be a difficult thing to prop-
erly care for him, and he was honorably discharged. I hope that we
may sometime have another one here, for the youthful national bird,
like the young America, will yield to good instruction and become a
most tractable member of society.
Dick Coon? Vlfcll, isn't he a droll fellow! See him stretch -and

to see Juliet II., the 'possum? You've heard of her? Yes,
she's the possum of checkered career, fond of adventure and
much given to playing truant, straying from home and getting
lost, and being found in unexpected places such as organs and
coal scuttles. I-Ier accomplishments? They're easily enumer-
ated, being but four in number: to eat, to sleep, to make faces
and to hang from one's finger by means of her prehensile tail. The

Dick is five years old and he has lost a few teeth, but
he's funnier than ever, although he seems to bc getting
lazier. Great stories are told of his babyhood days in
Nebraska: of his captivity, his escapes and his escapadesg
of how he would open the screen door, walk
house and let the door slam behind him, frightening the
wits out of everybody, of his visits to the sugar-box, the
jelly glasses, the basket, of the ruination of spring

farm. She is extremely diflident and, l'm afraid, some-

Dick is a hen-peeked coon? We don't often see him con-
versing with her, and it's current gossip that he is very jealous
of Katrina. But he's a most amiable old fellow, very affable
and always wanting to know how you are getting along.
Katrina? The pride of the Zoo! I saved her till the last.
Isn't she a beauty? She's everyone's favorite. She came
, to us when she was only
a wee bit coyote, and now
she's four years old. She has always lived
in the best society and she isnt really happy
unless she is receiving attention, for she has
always had somebody to play with. Didnlt
you ever see her out on the campus for a
romp with jim or Mr. Charles? I've told
you about her so often that I know you feel
Well! Did I
we'll not neglect
you. Run away,

really mean you'd like to have his tail to wear about
your neck? VVell, give me all of Grandpa,-not
merely the tail, but the cunning head, the quick
brain, those alert ears, those playful ways, those sparkling eyes. What?
Well, I thought you wouldn't ask me to massacre him just yet.

The Grandstand Speaks
LTHOUGH only about a year old, I'm going to have my say. I have
taken several steps, and there has been no objection filed to my forward-
ness. You will perhaps care to know how I happened to be dropped down
on the Campus of a Normal School. It was this way: The trustees, believing
that enough boys to form an athletic team would annually wend their way to
De Kalb, decided that the girls who support the team and do the cheering should
be made comfortable. In fact, those who attend the games as spectators are often
more comfortable than those who attend as performers.
The first year of my existence has been an eventful one. I was completed
just in time for the interstate oratorical contest and track meet of IQO3. The
orators made so much noise that I couldn't sleep well that night. Then, besides
the oratorical noise there was the memory of an exciting event that happened in
the afternoon. The Northwestern University baseball team came out here to
play a combination high school and normal school team, and were defeated in
a score of 2 to 1, which, I have been told, is real ball playing.
The next day the result was so reversed in the Interstate Track Meet that
it took me some time to recover from the shock of it.
Along in the summer the I-I. 0. G. team played against the Summer School
team and finally won in an 11-inning game by a score of 4 to 3.
Late in September some men came and made a checker board for me to
look at. It puzzled me to see through the game the fellows tried to play on this
checker board affair. Someone told me it was a game of football. It may be
called that, but the game isn't what the name indicates.
Une fine Gctober day the old fellows came back to play against the young-
sters. There were Kays, Hansen, Frederick, I-Iiflle, Malone, Lucas, Ackert, Phil-
lips, et al. These "oldsters" were so much interested in the ladies that they
couldn't play long at a time.
In early November some lads from the "Baby Normal School" came here
to play football. They looked "good," but weren't. I never saw the Normal
boys gallop up and down the field so fast as they did this particular day.
Thanksgiving Day was pretty cold, but I saw a "warm time" in the after-
noon. A game between the High School and the Normal School was scheduled,
but it broke up in what some people call "a difference of opinion" regarding the
rules, and everybody left the held disgusted with the kind of football which is
played with the mouth.
I was snowed in much of the winter and had my supply of city water wholly
shut off. Very early in the spring, however, the water was turned on again and
the boys came back to cut their usual capers in track and baseball. The fellows
who have won athletic honors for the school in the past did not come, but the
enthusiasts who are to win the honors this year are out where I can see them
every day. And I have already seen them show the High School boys the way
to get around the bases and register tallies.
The view which I get from my position is very pleasing. The cinder track
leads away to my right and then comes curving back. The tennis courts loom
lar e and inviting in the distance. The fragrance of the wild crab blossom is
blown to me o'er Waving grasses: the laughter of children gives me thrills of
joyg the shouts of the victors give 1

A Tale 0 Beginnings
iq' HE tale tells that when the Griffins, stationed aloft on the
1 high walls of the Hall of Pedagogues, took their first good
Ng-.1 look about them to get their bearings, they saw great
stretches of green meadowland falling off to the south and
east, toward a thick forest and cleft amidmost by a little
river. Qver beyond the tree-tops they could see the spires of
the busy town where men make long strings of wire with
prongs sticking out here and there, for the fencing of flocks
and herds. Closer they could see no human dwellings save
only those on or anigh the high road called Main, or those
dimly seen far to the east on the road called First. At last,
when they heard the honk of the wild geese in their south-
ward liight, the Griffms saw to the north and east a new
dwelling made fair without with yellow plaster, and they
heard the Hall folk say, "l3ehold! You goodly dwelling is
for the abiding place of Page, our learned instructor." Here
he dwelt with his good wife, Dame Janet, and the gentle, white-haired dame, his
mother, alone on the wide prairie. Through the day the little family caught faint
echoes of the life of the neighboring town, but at sunset, when the glooming was
at point to begin, a peaceful silence fell unbroken save for the lowing of cattle in
the pastures near by, or the sweetly plaintive call of the pewee and the hooting of
the owl in the woodland.
The tale tells that the other leaders of the young among the Hall folk
lived over beyond the forest, within the town, and were wont to jeer at good
man Page, calling him Farmer Page, for that he came so seldom among them
and grew to wear the look of one used to gazing at broad acres and wide arch-
ing skies. But he cared naught for their jibes, being well content to abide under
his own roof-tree, in his own ingle nook, and to break bread at his own table.
This might not the others dog but they were fain to eat where they could and
sleep as best they might, for you must know that there were a great many
Hall folk newly come among the town folk, so that food and shelter were hard
to come at.
At noons, for that food was scarce, they stayed their hunger by full
draughts of milk, and you must know that each morning a huge wain drove up
to the west door of the Hall and a cowherd ranged therein row after row of
drinking-horns filled with milk and cream. The cowherd was thrall to a man
named Gurler. The tale tells that when there came a short break in the toiling
of the young folk so that they might range where it liked them, the young men
were wont to run helter-skelter down the long Hall ways, striking their arms
out right and left most like to a strong swimmer buffeting the waves, and falling
over one another to get at the drinking-horns. Thereupon the Master of the
Hall, when all were gathered in the common meeting-place, made speech and
said, "Long have I lived, yet never have I known that there be more than one
kind of animal that will break down the bars and run for milkf' Then might
you see the youths grow crimson red even to their ears, for that they perceived
that the Master likened them to very young calves. At this lunchtime certain
of the youths were wont to gather in a high room of the Hall and play mightily
on drums and wind instruments. The sounds they made were most awesome,
at whiles a clashing of tones at fearful odds with one another, and at whiles
deep groanings as of spirits in the dark under world. Yet when this band
played at some feast or merry-making the Hall folk greeted them right heartily,
albeit some put bits of cotton in their ears lest the drums thereof take harm.
At first there was but one road leading to the Hall. Every man, whether
he bestrode a horse, or drove a wagon, or went afoot, took his way through
the great gate at the south, for toward the east was no bridge across the water-
way nor might it well be forded. VVhen spring came on the little watercourse
to the south of the Hall grew to a brown, murky torrent raging clean across the
roadway. No woman might cross it and the men, even by great leaps, could
scarce come off without mishap. Then did Shoop, the good .care-taker of the
Hall, take his stand near john's road and faithfully warn travelers of their
peril, bidding them beware of the south gates and pointing them to the foot-
bridge thrown in haste across the eastern stream. In these days did Farmer
Page come to town with high rubber boots and with a firm staff to his hand.
He had likewise a long list of wares that Dame Janet bade ,him buy in the
market place, for you must know that not even for hire could he get man or
beast to venture through his domain by reason of the deep and sticky mud. Ill
would it have fared with his little household had not Farmer Page been stout
of heart and bold of spirit, and withal good at walking. f
The tale tells of busy times in field and woodland when the making of
roads began. Men went through the woods with ax and saw. They felled
the stately trees and drove the sharp plow-share through the meadows, and
made a path of ugly black cinders. Up hill and down dale it went, and on
both sides were stretches of greensward set thick with dog-tooth violets and
pink spring beauties, with now and again a clump of the wild blue phlox. On
the Hall side of the footbridge was laid a walk of two boards of no great width
kept apart by a space where sore need was for another board, for no man
might walk thereon without much ado to keep from falling into the hole. Yet
whether the Hall folk fared through the meadow or through the forest they
found the walk exceeding pleasant in the spring, for everywhere the birds sang
merrily and made the wildwood gay with their bright plumage. So the year
waxed and waned, and ever the badge best loved by the Hall folk was the
yellow and white, and their proudest boast was ever, "I am a pioneer." So
was the year sweet to them. Good was it, too, for that it looked toward other
years to come, each with its own tale of comrades walking pleasant ways to-
gether in faith and loyalty.
Ballad of Sir Charles
and Faire Elsie
KEN ye not that a knight of fame
Has won a faire ladye,
And brought her to his ain countree
His bonny bride to be?
There has na' been a week, a week,
A week but barely ane,
When blithlie awa' this knight would ride,
But sair come hame again.
O mony and mony a pilgrimage
To the shrine of the faire Elsie,
Cnr gude Sir Charles this year has made,
For full devout is he.
Hearken, ye gentles, to the tale,
Now hearken to the lay.
Faire Elsie came to the Hall, the Hall,
Un a golden autumn day.
And her hands they were sae lily white,
And her face, it was sae bonny,
And the glance fra her clear blue e'e sae bright
VVas sae Winsome and sae merry.
Qur gude Sir Charles but looked and sighed,
"Alas! wae's me!
My heart is sair. I darena' think
Cn this gentle, faire ladye.
"To Science great my life is given.
I must for aye
Cn fishes think, on frogs, and flowers,
And not on ladies gay.
"Avva', aWa', thou faire ladye!
Awa' forever mair!
Kathrine l'll love, and Dick and Jerry,
But O my heart is sair."
The days went by and the weeks went by,
As days and weeks will do,
And Sir Charles was sad, and Sir Charles was glad
He wist na' what to do.
Ae morn he went to view the birds,
In the merry month of May,
And he saw the maid in the morning light
Picking the fiowers sae gay.
And the robin sang, "Q gude Sir Charles,
This maid is wondrous bonny.
O dinna ye ken that she is sae faire,
Sae kind and sae cheerie ?"
Then quoth Sir Charles, "Q robin true,
Ye tell sae sweet a story.
Science awa'l Until I dee,
l'll serve this Winsome ladyef'
But lang, lang was he sore perplexed,
And troubled sair was he:
For much he feared he might na' uin
This bonny maid Elsie.
But he bore him weel, and he spak' sic things,
She promised his bride to lie.
And they twa went to the sunny southland,
They twa, on a lang journie.
Sac hither come all ye gude students,
And drink the lzluid red wine
To the health of Sir Charles and his faire ladye,
Come drink to this toast of mine.

HUSH, my babe, my darling, and close thine eyes in rest,
The sunset glow is fading from out the golden west.
The little birds are twitt'ring among the leafy boughs,
And homeward from the meadow now lowing come the cows.
The summer winds are lulling the dewy flowers to sleepg
The little lambs, all tired with play, have sought the mother sheep
One fair, bright star is shining far up in heaven's blue.
And sweet, pale, silv'ry moonbeams make fairy paths for you.
Under the mystic radiance lieth the peaceful land,
And asleep is my babe, my darling hushed by slumber's hand.
And while through the calm night watches the beautiful star-eyes peep
May the angels o'er my little one, their loving vigils keep.

. Qi NCE upon a time there was a queer little 'possum and her
,gfjly , name was Juliet IT. Poor Juliet I. had been savagely eaten
, ,rm up by Romeo, who left little as a memorial of her beautv.
1317? Juliet H lived in a funny wire house in a Great Ur b 'ld
UI! Q l My . . ' f g , g ay ul -

' ' X' W' Jim, and every morning watched for his long coat.
Many strange people visited Juliet H. and tried to make friends with her.
but she only showed her sharp, white teeth and would not ever eat what they
"Now, Juliet," said Long Jim one morning, "what do you suppose is going
to happen to you today P" But Juliet could not suppose.
"Well," said Long Jim, "you are going to another school where there are
many little children, and they'll be good to you. They may leave the door of
your house open sometimes, but you must not go outg the janitor might catch
you. He caught a mouse once, and that was the end of the mouse. Now, re-
member, Juliet. Good-bye!"
Pretty soon some little boys came and put Juliet II. and her house in a
wagon. She went through many streets 'till she was at last in a large wooden
building with many children gathered round, staring at 'her and calling her
queer names. But after awhile they all went away and it was very still in the
Juliet II. tried the door of her house. It was unfastened! She forgot what
Long Jim had told her about the mouse, and squeezed out. First she jumped into
the waste basket and played with the bits of paper: then she got into some of
the desks, and then she looked out of the window and saw a man with a broom.
He must be the janitor Long Jim had told her about. Juliet TI. was dreadfully
frightened. She rushed all over the room, for she had for- ji ,533 I. ,
gotten the way back to her house. Then she heard a noise ' fl
and thought the janitor must surely be coming after her. She ,J
gave herself up for lost, and shed big tears. But her sobs V
were overheard by some friendly mice who ran to her in X
great excitement and implored her to hide in the organ. They
showed her the way, and there Juliet H. stayed all night and
felt lonely and miserable.
The next morning the children went to her house. She
was not there! Juliet H. trembled, for she could hear the
children, the teacher, and - the janitor, searching for her.

They looked in all the drawersg they looked among a pile of
chairs by the window: they even looked behind the pictures:
but Juliet II. was nowhere to be found. There was only one place left-the
organ! Juliet Il. hoped they would not think of that. Her hair bristled right
up and her teeth chattered. If she only had obeyed Long Jim! But it was too
late! The janitor lifted the organ and the teacher pulled Juliet H. out by the
tail, and put her back in her house and fastened the door!
After a while some boys came and wheeled Juliet II. to a place they called
the Glidden school. Again there were more children, and another teacher, and
another janitor! Juliet H. trembled and showed her white teeth for the janitor
grumbled every time he came near her.
After a very long time, all the children went home, and Juliet ll. was left
alone. She forgot about the janitor, and what Long Jim had told her, and tried the

door of her houseg but it was fastened! How much she wanted to
run away. Could she push the door open? She would try. She
pushed, and at last it gave way. Juliet ll. was free! She found a
was shut, and there was no room for a fat little 'possum to
squeeze underneath. Juliet U. began to ery. Then she flaw
tried to find her way straight across the room, but she be- ,ol j
Came INOTC frightened by the rows of desks. Suddenly,
close to her, she heard the noise of a broom-swish, swish. il !
swish. Juliet H. seurried underneath a desk. llut presently, if
as nothing happened, she came out and climbed upon a K,.,f
chair and peeped over. The first thing she saw was the N R .ul 'ffl
janitor dusting the desks. His back was turned and beyond My ,fn
him was an open door. Juliet ll. got down very quietly XX
off the chair and started running as fast as she could go,
along a straight crack ltehind the desks. She whisked out X X If fi Jliiflixl
the door and found herself in a large hall where there were 'xx 'Jig
some stairs. Down, down. down she ran and never stopped J I 'I
running or looked behind her until she got into a large room i 1
at the bottom. Juliet ll. was very tired, so she flopped down upon some soft
ashes there and shut her eyes. When she woke up, the room was dark, and she
was very hungry. She seampered around to lind something to eat, but there
was nothing but a pile of dirty newspapers and a can of oil, She tried to eat
the newspapers, but they were so dry that she nearly choked, so she drank some
of the oil, which was very cool and pleasant to her throat. lint she thought
the taste was a little queer. Juliet ll. now found a corner behind a piece of tin.
This, she thought, was a good place to hide in. For a long time she lay there.
The children Came down to look for her, and she heard the janitor turning over
flower pots and scraping the ashes. The newspapers and the oil made her feel
very miserable, so she lay quite still behind the tin.
For several days Juliet ll. lay there. lfinally she heard the swish, swish
of a broom coming nearer and nearer, and knew it was the janitor again. She
looked at him wildly when he took away the tin, but she was too weak to run.
"VVell, here's that ipossumf' he grumbled, and took her up and carried her
back to her wire house. The children crowded around again and gave her
apple cores, and even sent down town for a big piece of meat, but Juliet H. felt
too sad to eat. She wanted to see Long jim and tell him about the newspapers
and the oil. That afternoon some boys carried her back to her old home in
the great, gray building. Juliet H. was so glad to see Long Jim that she ate
everything he gave her and soon forgot all about janitors and organ, news-
papers and oil cans. ELEANOR TROXELL.

HE fairest, sweetest flowers within the wood-
Dainty hepaticas. pink, blue and white-
Grew close beside a brook where the foam floats lightg
XVith spreading arms on guard the old oaks stood.
They first peeped shyly out in winter hood:
NVhen the sun shone warm they tried to reach the light.
Around each head the soft wind with delight
NVhispered. Then smiled each face in happy mood,
NVhen the long months of ice and snow are past
Springs sunshine warms the wintry heart again.
And come love's happy sunbeams Hitting fast
On golden Huttering wings and there remain.
Then purest thoughts awake within the heart,
Like flowers of spring-that blossom and depart.
Sonnet to a Pebble
HE RUUGH and jagged granite stone
From parent rock is torn,
And down the torrent without nioln
It, toward the sea, is borne.
Through journey long it oft is tossed
From place to place without design,
Its surface smoothed, the roughness lost.
VVC find a pebble in the meadow stream.
XVe're even so-all tossed and torn
And hurled we know not why or how.
Is it Design or mere blind Fate?
Or do we reap what we have sown?
Through pitfall, trial, and deep mourn
The shapeless soul comes to its own.
To a Summer Night
TD fading tints on yon far western height
Cooling the heated highlands and the plains:
VVhile insects break the stillness of the night.
Fair summer night, thou friend of all mankind,
That shifts the thoughts of earthly toils and cares:
Thou builder of the body and the mind
That calms the heart that grief and passion bears.
To thee that bringest rest to weak and strong,
Should all the earth give praise and thanks and song.
The sun gives o'er his reign to evening shades.
In wooded hills and glens the twilight fadesl
The moon takes up her peaceful watch o'er night
Flooding the streams and lakes with shimmering light
The whispering winds pass through the shadowy glaries
Song of the Lark
RUDE and humble daughter of the soil,
At early flawn with sitkle in thy hand,
VVhilst clewy slumber lingers o'er the land
Thou goest forth to an ignoble toil.
VVhat then with joyous passion thrills thee so,
Vifhat lifts thy lowly being to such heights
And brings to thy new wakenecl soul delights
Unknown to thy mute llrother of the Hoe?
'Tis but a lark whose mellow, racliant song,
Re-echoing through a heart which, like its own
ls tutorecl but by natures art alone,
Emotions stirs which to a goal belong.
Though small -the wisclom in thy peasant breast-
Heaven hath in gracious recompense thee blest.

1 Did you tramp the town hunting for some place to live,
Q' Begging the people to give you something to eat?
Did you go to the meeting of the N. T. T. A. through the rain?
VVere you here the first year?
VVe were here the first year.
VVe were strangers to each other.
The students were strange.
Dr. Shoop was strange.
The building was strange.
The streets were unpaved.
The walks were unfinished.
The rain fell in torrents.
Boarding houses were not open.
VVe ate at the Glidden House.
Then we tried the Bush restaurant.
Then we persuaded our landlady to give us breakfast.
We ate luncheon at school.
We ate dinner where we could get it.
Those were strenuous times.
We were here the first year.
We were Pioneers!
VVhat do you know of hardship?
Your first year here the streets were paved.
VVe had the foot bridge.
There were three boards in the sidewalk when you came.
Mrs. Dunleavy had a boarding house.
There were rooms to be rented.
You were not a Pioneer!
VVhat do these new people know of hardship?
The bridge, the broad brick pavement, ,
The street car to the very door,
Two elegant carriages at command,-
What if it does rain, what if the walk up the hill is long?
You do not have to endure what the Pioneers did.
You have come in a time of luxury-
You are not a Pioneer!
There are only a few Pioneers left.
The new ones jeer at our reminiscences.
They do not understand the joy of recounting past troubles.
When we say, "That first year we were here,"
There is a smile, they think they have heard all our stories.
Little do they know.
Perhaps they care little, too,
Of the many things we have never told.
Rubbers unnumbered have been lost.
Hats blown away, all kinds of adventures we have had.
Many interesting experiences are treasured in our memories.
But they will never know.
They do not appreciate that we are the only Pioneers.
We were here the first year!

The winds are softly singing
A medley sweet of woodland tones,
The brook's long hushed song
Gurgles in dizzy gladness.
The days have lost their sadness
And with a Huttering whir of wings
The birds Hy swiftly along.
Nlist from the hills is lifting,
The feathery clouds are drifting.
Across the sky of pearly blue.
Green blades, with the breeze, are whispering ,
The sun is the tree-tops gilding,
Making a world bewildering,
Fresh odors rise, where violets dwell,

e Last Moments at Home
OTHER is calling for me to hurry down to breakfast. I can hear the
dishes rattle and the chairs move and in a moment I am awake and fully
aware of the fact that the vacation is over. The ground is white outside
and the cold wind comes roaring through the tree tops only making one dread
going back to school all the more. Finally, after much fumbling and hunting,
I go down stairs carrying an arm full of things which T wish to take back to
school, and a lamp whose chimney threatens to fall off at every step T take.
Wfhen brother, sister, father, mother and T get at the breakfast table no one
seems to have much to say and everyone looks sober.
Soon breakfast is over and the carriage is waiting at the door. T hurriedly
seize my satchel and bid good bye to mother and sister who, after seeing that
I have everything with me, come to the door and watch me get into the car-
riage. After much pulling and tugging father and T get the robes tucked in
and after shaking hands with my brother, we start for the depot. The wheels
creak in the cold snow, making us shiver all over. As we go down the driveway
to the road the last thing I hear is mothers voice calling, "Take good care of
yourself. Don't forget to write and tell us how you are getting along." Then
all is silent as we' leave the yard but the moaning of the wind through the pine
trees which stand tall and dark in the dim light of the early morning. XVe have
a cold, rough ride over the frozen roads to the depot three miles away. XVhen
we reach it T get out of the carriage numb with cold: but T forget the cold, yes.
I forget everything when T think of that last grasp of fathers hand and his
kind voice as he says, "Take good care of yourself. If you need anything let
us know and we will send it to you."

IGI-I noon, and I stand alone on a small iron
bridge at the end of a long winding street
far from the busy whirr of the hot, hurry-
ing city. The quiet houses stand silently blinking at
the white, quivering street, still-so still and empty one
feels he is in the border land of the fabled city, Auf
lViedersehen. Across the bridge and away to the
south, across a small wilderness of billowy green and
beyond a little ravine marked by cool, slender willows,
is a tiny, limpid lake, smooth and clear-at rest in the
shimmering sunshine. Beyond all, showing dimly
through the haze of distance, looms up the weather-
worn wall, the confines of this vast, silent land. Away
to the west it disappears in the shade of deep, cool, for-
est trees, darkly silent, not so much as a whispering
leaf or a bird note-one is afraid to breathe for fear of
disturbing the spirits there. And away to the west.
against a brazen sky. looms up a gray and ancient cas-
tle, partly covered with ivy. The windows are deep and
dark and sunless. The Griffms, silently resolute, stare
stonily out across the future, each from his separate
post on the battlements where he has faithfully stood
guard these many years.

becomes one with the quivering
half a memory of other days in
other worlds. The hot bricks burn my feet. I heed it not. Beside me, suddenly, I
find a friend of long ago, and, as on up the path we go, here and there we catch
glimpses of those that have been missed from life long since, or have wandered far
in other lands. if it I slip silently thro' the doors with these ghosts of yes-
terday. I see the old halls full of their old, old life, the kind faces of those
who were my guides and inspiration. l'ast the echoing rooms I go. The dim,
dark library is still and lonely and a chill creeps over me. I listen. Down the
great corridors from the vast Assembly Hall is wafted the faint echoes of that
"And so 'twill he when I am gone.
That tuneful peal will still ring on,
W'hile other hards shall walk these dells,
And sing your praise, sweet evening bells."
Suddenly I am alone again-out in the blazing sunshine. A droning bee
swings lazily by, and beyond the curb comes the faint "cheer up" of a cricket.
This is not for me, this is from the halls of memory. I am of the present-my
work is heyond-out in the unheeding world. I turn about and softly steal away.
fearful lest at the sound of a footfall the sweet memory dream may vanish.
Enrrii A. l '1il2uI.1:s.
SEE it far-off in my dreams,
'Dim as a bird when it upward flies,
A dusty gray road-how it gleams!
Zigzagging its way
With a spirit gay,
Trying to meet with a smile, the glad skies.
I still hear the song of the bird,
In the velvet dust I wiggled my toes,
And now the low tinklings are heard,
Of the cow-bells so clear,
Now afar, now so near,
Thrilling the farm boy as homeward he goes
Along the road's rough broken edge,
Brown-eyed Susans in ragged rows,
In smiles nod their heads o'er the hedge.
In long, careful curves,
In sweeps and in swerves,
Lush, soggy grass in luxuriance grows.
But now all is changed for I see,
Straight and unbroken-a harsh, rude line,
A road that has lost liberty.
With brick it is paved,
No How'rs have they saved-
Of the hedge and its bloom is no sign.
Yet more than in days of yore-'
'Tis a highway for seekers of wisdom,
It beckons them onward before,
With a vision of light,
To a goal of delight,
And it leads to a fair land of freedom.
Cn Writing a Sonnet
T is on my heart and on my mind.
CFor I have studied many a poet,
Both the ballad and the sonnetj,
That for a Sonnet I must find
A worthy subject of some kind.
Not of love-that must be secret:
Gr on friendship-I might lose it.
Before this task I'm groping blind.
Come spirit of Petrarchan days,
Enjambment fair and rhyming schemes.
A Junior, too, can write sweet lays,
When he but has the proper themes.
O words, O thoughts, O lines, O rhymes,
You're lost, you're gone, a thousand times!
T he World is T00 Much
HE world is too much with us," up betimes
To get and give of facts we use our powers:
"Little we see in Nature that is ours"g
'Tis brooks, and maps, and charts, and measuring lines
Hieroglyphs, and cabalistic signs,
Pastehoard, paper-pulp, putty, salt and Hour,
And stucco to be worked with by the hour,
Till continents are turned out while one grinds.
Ye gods, who dwell in sylvan shades, rebel!
4 ji' !
Ye nymphs and maids who sport in purling streams,
Come forth! and call again unto your shrines
These indoor devotees of wood and dell,
And hid them Find in hill or plain such themes
As make the soul expand beyond set lines.

Put your ugly mug out--'
when the door opens, a face appears, the door closes. That is sufficient. All
know the cause and with smothered laughter resort to the kettles where candy
is ready for cooling. But the taffy pull comes with girls on the bed, girls on the
floor and girls in every one else's way. At hve-thirty a giggling line of "starving"
girls usher themselves into the dining room.
By seven o'clock all quiet upstairs, every one seeking the aid of Minerva.
Spirit of unrest still wandering around the corridor. Half past eight, gentleman
caller downstairs, girls jealous. Three girls decide campaign, seek aid of others:
carpet slippers in order: one stealthily glides downstairs, returns with hat and
coat. Garret' ransacked, shoes-enuinber fourteen-carpet, sofa pillows, an old
comforter, gorgeous ribbons, cotton. With diligence and muffled giggles they con-
struct a man.
How much a man does hold of comforters, sofa pillows, pieces of carpet and
then looks slim! At last a George VVashington complete. It takes three of the
stoutest to raise the General to his feet. He is placed in a sitting posture, his legs
a trifle lanky and bow-legged are crossed. Fifteen minutes lost in laughter. A
man constructed in one hour and a half! Borne in state to the lower hall and
given a seat of honor.
Girls in room over parlorg chorister sounds "dong songs sung-
"Once said a mother donkey
To her little lass.
If you can't sing louder
You can have no grass.
Aw-e, aw-e, aw-e, aw."
Still gentleman stays. Alarm clocks peal forth from stairway. Door squeaks.
Great confusion. Ghostly? Oh, no. nzuch laughter. A spread in honor of illus-
trious guest. Poor statesman dismemberedg funeral in the near futureg all cor-
dially invitedg look for notice on bulletin board. Tired girls, no lessons.

ODI' New YCQIJS
EVV YEARS is the time
When men o'er the world believe
In merry jollification,
And we couldn't quite conceive
Gf mixing fun with study,
Cn that day of the yearg
And not to have a holiday
Seemed just a little queer.
So we entered a petition
In the N. I. S. N. S.,
Asking for a holiday,
Did we have a doubt? Uh, yes-
About its being granted,
For the catalogue said, "No,
New Years is no holiday
And you to school must go."
As Dr. Cook was absent
This petition We had made.
The faculty read it over-
Then on the shelf 'twas laid.
This did our ardor dampen
And our plans seemed going wrongg
But our grief was all uncalled for,
And we should have sung a song.
For Dr. Cook returning
Did the proper thing,
And granted our petition
just the very iirst thing.
Do you think this made us happy?
Consider, then the date.
The day we asked for was the first-
'Twas granted three days late.

ERTAINLY humanity owes a card of thanks to the milking stool,
but in all the realms of three-leggedness there is nothing
more serviceable than the bulletin board that stands near the
office door. Is it paradoxical that who attends to everybody's
business should have such a reputation? Never mind-it is
true and don't you know that it isn't what one does but how
he does it that counts for good or ill?

General exercises were disturbed one day by a mournful strain from an
uncertain direction. Dr. Cook sent Mr. Parson down to the gymnasium to ask
the intruder to delay piano practice until the noon hour. Mr. Parson reported
that there was no one in the gym. Mystery deepened. Finally it appeared that
the mourning came from the Senior Horn, which on hearing Dr. Cook mention
the class of "naughty-three," had given vent to its loneliness. VVe're glad to
say that it seems to be in the best of spirits now, and we believe that for the
most part it has enjoyed the year. VVe assure the alumni that no pains have
been spared to preserve it and we hand it down to the juniors with not a single
Through the earnest efforts of Dr. Shoop shades of delicate hue have been
hung at the auditorium doors. Our orators can now hear themselves practice
without being seen by the multitude. Likewise the amateurs who put on the
Senior plays, have been saved the annoyance of spectators during the rehearsals.
Up to date the head janitor is the only person who has been caught peeking.
A Winteris Morn
VVINTRY morn that hath in beauty dressed
The rough brown earth we knew but yesterday
And covered each bare lawn and rugged way
VVith this white robe spread o'er her sleeping breast,
How sweet to be assured this is but rest,
Not death in joyous nature and decayg
That after this will come warm, happy May,
And birds will sing again at her behest.
Hearts have their winter, too, their cold and snow
Wfhen every flower of joy bows low its head,
Then good it is to trust, look up, and know
That joy but sleeps, that hope cannot be dead,
That it will spring again within the heart
That truly loves and acts a noble part.
JESSIE R. MANN
PUREST truth that in all things doth dwell.
Thou who to mortal seldom showst thy face.
Hast made this world a nobler dwelling place.
And fought accursed sin since Satan fell.
Sometimes is jointly heard thy lingering knell.
VVhile earthly passions do the heart embrace,
For all the world thou set'st a godlike pace,
And all the sordid darkness doth dispell.
Come thou to men and be a cleansing light.
And purify their wicked souls with thine,
Thus lead their wayward, wandering steps aright.
So make the light of heaven round them shine,
That they may have the purest, holiest sight,
And know of Him who dwells in man, divine.

The Departure of the
Y THE shore of Normal Lakelet,
By the silent, slow Kishwaukee.
At the east door of the Normal,
ln the pleasant summer morning,
The Good Doctor stood and waited.
All the air was full of gladness,
All the earth was bright and joyous,
And before him thru the sunshine,
Homeward toward parental dwellings
Passed in joyous crowds the students,
Passed the students homeward going,
Laughing, singing in the sunshine.
Bright above him, shone the Griffins
Level spread the lake before himg
From its bosom leaped the bull frog,
Sparkling flashing in the sunshineg
Glad that now its trials were over.
From the brow of the Good Doctor,
Gone was every trace of gladness,
As the fog upon the river,
As the mist upon the meadow:
For he saw as in a vision,
Some thumb marks upon the glass-doors.
Down the marble hall, the Long jim,
Came with mop and pail, the Long jim:
From his rev'ry roused the Doctor.
f'They are going, G my Long Jim,
Gu their long and distant journey,
To the portals of their parents,
To the regions of the home love.
But these marks they leave behind them
On the floors and on the glass-doors,
See that these are washed and brightened
See that these are cleaned and polishedf,
Forth unto the depot went he,
And upon the platform stood he,
Bade farewell to all the maidens,
Bade farewell to all the young men,
Spake he kindly, spake in this wise:
"You are going, O my young friends,
On your long and distant journey g
Many moons and many winters
Will, perchance, have come, and vanished,
Ere you come again to see us.
Listen to my words of warning,
Listen to the truths I tell youg
It is only for your profit
That I tell you to he social.
You must be of others careful
When you in the big world travel,
Ne'er forget what I have told you
Of the social acts and customs."
Then into the carriage stepped he,
Turned and waved his hand at parting,
Said, "Farewell," unto the students,
Said, "Farewell" to all the students,
And they answered to him, "Farewell,
Farewell to you, our Good Doctor.
NVe will listen to your wisdom,
lrVe will heed your words of warning,
For we know how much you love us.
You would guide our lives and footsteps
In the paths of right, our footsteps.
VVe shall ne'er forget our Doctor,
How he led us on to wisdom,
How he made our paths so pleasant,
In the fair, bright morn of school time."
The Adventures 0 Michael Mcclusky
on the Normal Campus
A fRC'f7l'I'IZl'6tli from the Hoang H0 fourzzal of Physical C1lllfll7'f?.J
HE following story is told by one, Gus Bjorksonberg, living in a small
village twelve miles north of Stockholm, Sweden, who proudly states that
he is a second cousin of Michael McClusky's wife's aunt who resided at
Baikalinsky Center, Siberia, when last heard from. Those desiring a more de-I
tailed description of this man's life should address the aforesaid Gus Bjorkson-
berg, Stockholm Rural Free Delivery, number nine.
Cn the afternoon of Ottober 21, 1869, while Michael McClusky was out
making biological observations, he saw a strange looking spot in the sky off
in the northwest about the size of the moon when viewed through an opera
glass. After watching it for some time, he climbed a tall date palm which
stood near, in order that he might get a better view. After watching for a short
time he saw that the cloud was whirling and soon it appeared to be as large as
a full grown currant tush twenty feet from the eye of the observer. just
then a small. but very powerful, whirlwind started to pass through the trees be-
low him, filling the air with leaves and dust. For a while McClusky could
hardly cling to the tree he was in, but soon the whirlwind had passed and was
hurrying on to the east playing havoc with every loose object that lay in its
path. In the lull which followed he had time to catch his breath and add to his
nature notes: Large drove of anteaters seen swimming on the lake: large
bunch of ostrich feathers seen floating down the Kishwaukeeg cretaceous whirl-
wind seen on the Tributary.
Wliile he was writing he felt that Something was wrong, yet he could not
just see what the trouble was for the trunks of the red Cedars and mahogany
trees were all parallel to the trunk of the date palm which he was in. After
scratching his head a few seconds he became impatient and, whipping out his
watch, he tied a string to it and made a plumb line which he dropped to the
ground. Instead of the plumb line dropping parallel to the surrounding tree
trunks it seemed to drift about forty degrees to the north. McClusky became
angry at this and gave the line such a yank that he nearly lost his balance and
caused a large bunch of dates above him to come rattling down through the
branches, knocking off all the centipedes and snowy owls that chanced to be
in the way. Looking up to see where all of the strange procession had come
from, he saw that the trunk of the tree he was in pointed directly at the mag-
netic pole of the North Star.
He had hardly taken in the situation when there came a crash that made the
whole atmosphere vibrate and Caused myriads of cocoanuts to fall from the
towering palms of the surrounding forest. Then for the first time lVlcClusky
was reminded of the cloud which he had seen in the northwest. In another
instant a blast of wind drove against him with such force that he was torn
from the branch on which he sat and whirled through the air with terrible
velocity. As he looked around him he beheld sights which were strange and
terrible. All kinds of objects were wiggling and twisting and writhing and
whirling till the whole atmosphere seemed a reeling mass. There were tin
pans, bulletin boards, flamingoes, polyhedrons, birds of paradise, society ban-
ners, opossums, banjoes, goats and various other things of widely differing
physical properties and chemical compositions.
While McC1usky was hurriedly taking in the wonderful panorama of which
he was a part he suddenly felt something pulling on his fingers, and there to
his great surprise, he found that he still had hold of his plumb line. The line
soon began to pull harder, and looking down McClusky saw that he was di-
rectly above the lake. As near as he could make out there was some strange
force beneath the surface of the lake which was pulling him downward. Soon
the great storm had passed and McClusky fell into the lake with a splash so
terrific that three sturgeons and four snapping turtles came to the surface ap-
parently dead. The instant he struck the water some hidden force at the other
end of the plumb line began to tow him around the edge of the lake with the
velocity of a full-grown freight train on a perpendicular track. Round and
round tore McClusky and his submarine steed until finally the whole lake began
to whirl like a great top. McClusky claimed that this rotation kept up for
fully half an hour, when the velocity became so great that he was hurled
from the water. The centrifugal force was so terrific that he revolved around
the lake several times in mid air. Then by some accident he suddenly Hew out
about fifty feet farther from the edge of the lake. Before he had made another
revolution the plumb line whirled around a large tree. VVhat took place next
was a blank to McClusky, but when he came to he was surrounded by a large
group of Juniors, some of whom were giving him advice and the rest were
making laboratory drawings of a hammer headed shark which must have weighed
at least eleven tons.
The Way Ter Walk
CME one 'quired
Lazy? Guess not,
Clean Worn out.
Cayn't sit straight,
Et I tried all day.
Wfasnit built that-a-way.
Curv'ture of the spine?
Yur jest a-foolin' me.
'Sonly a way to recline,
Laigs, crost at the knee.
Better way did you say?
VVal, mebhe that be,
But somehow in my day
Doesn't 'gree with me.
You see, l'm old,
And rheumatic they say,
My spine doesn't hold
Up my back the right way.
But a young chap like you,
Qrter hev a back bone,
That, whatever you'd do,
I You'd stand up alone.
Makes me jest wild
To see them young chaps,
Like a weak little child,
About to collapse.
Too had you'1'e a-g'oin',
But I hope all my talk
XVill set you to knowin'
The right way ter walk.
At Evening Time
O you know, its mighty cur'ous
How one feels this time of day,
Away out here in the country
With the smell of the new-mown hay?
VVhen all is so still and quiet,
And I smoke in this old arm chair,
And the faint breeze a-blowin'
just ruflles my old gray hair.
The moon peeps over the forest,
The stars one by one come outg
And I watch the fireflies' glitter
As they Hy all round about.
It's a time when your feelins' soften
And harsh things said through the day
Come crowdin' into your 1nem'ry,
And they won't be brushed away.
And somehow or other you wonder
If your life's what it ought to have beeng
And things long since forgotten
Steal back and force their wav in.
And yet as you sit and ponder
VVhile the breeze comes through the air, '
The silence of night gathers round you
And the stillness seems a prayer.
It's surely the time for rellcctin'
God gives to us, every one,
VVhen the hurry and work are over
And the toil of the clay is done.

HAT melancholy day has come,
The saddest in our ken,
-1 Of useless bluffs and woeful Hunks,
And vows renewed again.
Un this, the first day of the workaday week, we open our eyes upon a
world of darkest indigo. Everything is bedaubed with the dismal shade. Even
our dreams of the night have been haunted by the elfish tricks of the little blue
imps that now have us in their power. Reproving glances from unopened
books follow us about the room until we fervently wish we might invert the
law of gravity and send these accusers spinning, spinning out into space, never
to return. The world is cruel and hard-there is no doubt about it. Then the
troublesome thing called conscience, glad to hit a fellow when he is down, lets
fly a few slings and arrows and our wounded feelings are a sight. It is a day
of humiliation-a day when we rise in recitation to falter forth, "I don't know,"
and then sink feebly and disgracefully back into our seat with our frightened
gaze still glued upon the teacher. Yainly seeking relief, we finally stare in
helpless abstraction out the window at the long stretch of dreary gray land-
scape, waiting only for the sharp tingle of the classroom bell to give variety
to our misery. But the long day at last spins itself out and now that it is over,
we sigh with the inconsistency of youth, "lt might have been worse," and re-
joice that the burden has tumbled from our over-burdened shoulders. Life is
liveable once more and we may sleep the sleep of the exhausted and dream of
a golden tomorrow.
DREAM on the heights of to-morrow,
I live on the level to-day.
Now which is the better, the real or the seeming,
As onward I pass in life's way?
I am queen in my castle in clreamland 5
I must toil in my prison to-day.
But the light from my castle above me
Brightens the darksome way.
I can bring from my dreamland castle,
VVith a touch of magic wands,
The brightness and warmth and love-life
And fill up 'empty hands.
So my double and I live happy-
I-le works in prison for me,
While I, the queen in the castle,
Watcli him pityingly.
Sometimes he is tirecl and wearyg
I bring him to rest in my home.
VVhile I take up his burden
He bravely carries alone.
So I make my dreaming the being,
Ancl live in the warmth of the ray
That comes from my sun on the hilltop--
l-ife's future brought clown for to-clay.

LASSMATES, leave me here a little while, as yet 'tis early morng
Leave me here and, when you want me, toot upon the old class horn.
'Tis the place, and all around it, as of old, the bluejays call-
Tinted gleams about the upland flying over Normal Hall.
Qur stately hall that in the distance overlooks the quiet town,
And the slow and sluggish river to the northward gliding down.
Many a morning on the campus did we hear the copses ring,
And the lark and robin thrilled us with the glory of the Spring.
Many a morning on the foot-bridge did we congregate together,
Bent upon a bird excursion, all regardless of the weather.
Many a morning in the springtime, just before our junior Day,
Did we break our peaceful slumber and to practice go straightway.
Qft the grandstand there was crowded and the echoes far and near
Came and passed and round us rang with their message of good cheer.
There in sports we met our neighbors, sometimes won and sometimes lost
But every lesson duly learned and worth the effort that it cost.
Many an evening in the twilight did we stroll along the street,
Talking, laughing, chatting gaily, till we reached the Freshman seat.
Many an evening by the lamplight, far into the solemn night.
We the words of "Rosy" pondered till their vision dimmed our sight.
Many a night when weak and weary, after hours of study time,
Have we sat and pondered dreary, grinding out a theme sublime.
Hark! my classmates now are calling, sounding on the old class horn,
And mem'ries dear, like echoing voices, far on wandering winds are borne
Come saffron tints from out the westward, gleams of red and purple
Brightening all the landscape over with their rays of mystic wonder.
Let them fall on Normal Hall, make a halo soft and bright,
And through long years of earnest effort be a symbol of its light.
QU are teaching school. You enjoy teaching school. Oh, yes, you do
enjoy it for it is an ideal occupation-so much depends upon it-your
influence is so great. Teachers control the universe. But you are tired
to-night-your skies are gray-Johnny had a spell to-day-the superintendent
visited you-your star class did poor work. You are tired of yourself. You
seat yourself in the easy chair before the cozy grate fire and settle back with a
feeling of luxury which is earned only by hard work. How comfortable you
are-how good it is to be at home! The swish, swish of the wind through the
tall pine trees, the drift, drift of the snow against the window pane, the cheery
crackling of the grate tire, the fluttering shadows on the wall, the drowsy
blinking of the cat and the friendly tick, tick of the mantel clock cast a dreamy
spell over you. After watching the leaping tongues of tlame, tracing the fate
of various fire sparks and following the shadows checking the walls, you fall
into that blissful state of half consciousness-you are aboard the reminiscence
train. Something in those ever-shifting shadows and weird fire pictures accel-
erate the speed of your train driving it far, far along old time's track into the
past with its delightful scenery viewed from points of memory, going through
day after day without stopping until it reaches the station known as Normal
Day. Here you demand that the train move slowly, for you must live over
again those dear old days, "those happy days when you were so miserable."
So your dreams begin. You are again a Normal student, a Senior hurry-
ing up that new brick pavement to a hrst hour recitation with the wind challeng-
ing a combat. It would be so much easier to walk against the wind if you
could swing your arms, but you won't do it, no, not for worlds, when it makes
Dr. Cook think you are just out of the quadruped stage. Finally you reach
the south door, the south door, remember, and carefully remove your rubbers
under the critical gaze of the man in a white coat and hurry into the coat room.
Asqnaturally as of old, you enter that great chatty, old coat room with its
long rows of familiar coats and hats. It is a cozy, friendly place where you
and your friends exchange "news," You stick Ethel's cap in your own coat
sleeve that she can not hurry off without you at noon and then that purple
ribbon in the corner, you tack on Myrtle Perry's sleeve just for fun because
she is such an ardent Ellwood. You have a little time to spare, so you move
condescendingly up to the radiator to hear the Freshmen tell their tales of woe,
sputter about their "everlasting paper pulp maps" and threaten the great things
that they intend to do to the con-
ceited Juniors. After lining up
in front of the mirror to give
your side combs the proper tilt,
you march into the hall.
The hall has its attractions, too.
There are the smiles of the prac-
tice children spinning its length
and the noisy group which sur-
rounds the barometer reading the
pressure until iinally they realize
that the pressure will be greater
unless they move on. You can
nod a happy good morning to Dr.
Shoop as he saunters along with
his dust cloth, for you removed
your rubbers and you have "kept
off the glassf' Once in the hall you are again living the life of a student in such
earnestness that you pass familiarly from room to room and regardless of time
or number of recitations a day, you go without intermission to some sixteen
You enter that scrupulously neat white laboratory with its carefully arranged
apparatus, seize the laboratory manual, and proceed to perform your experi-
ment, waiting until it is completed to think about it. The time of vibration of
a pendulum is estimated without regarding the size of bob, or amplitude of
vibration, a cubic centimeter of mercury is at last accurately weighed after ten
times that much has led a wandering course over the floor. But affairs always
straighten out for in that laboratory is a systematic worker who does wonders
in a short time and after all you do not mean to be so awkward and dense and
you are sorry to cause the man with the "patience of Job" so much trouble.
Growing nervous with handling sensitive weights you stroll down the hall.
Passing an open door your attention is attracted by a gorgeous map. That
artistic salt and Hour map of
North America draws you into
the geography class. You like
this class for you do so many dif-
ferent things. Here you are a
visualist to such a degree that
seven dots mean the state of Illi-
nois, a pan of sand the Niagara
region and a quart of water a
flood. You learn to estimate dis-
tance, for you really know the
length of a rod after pacing the
campus three times on a windy
day. You leave that class firmly
believing that there is a reason
for everything and wondering
how a woman with the earth on
her mind can be so cheerful.
The very next room is the History room and here you are thrilled, for the
History lessons work up a climax.
liefore us dramatic performances
add force to the climatic ten-
dency, for during the accounts
of Cllill'lt'lllilg'llL"S coronation, we

takings to nnite the Germanic

desk, impressing the meaning of
our words hy a vibrating' afore-
linger. Along with all this delv-
ing is the humorous man to make
hy-gones spicy, a shrewd reader to tell whether you have read over the lesson
and a helper to stimulate your wandering thoughts and wahhling reason. lint
"you must not tarry longer with that."
You cross the hall to the Biology room and here with two pages of classi-
fications to learn and a packed fish to disect you are well aware of nature's law
in regard to the struggle for existence. The grade book shows the law of
variation and a few beaming faces show that survival of the fittest. But you
become "adapted" and by the persistent and energetic work of the leaders, your
eyes are opened when you are taught to love nature, to understand the doctrine
of evolution. some of those vague questions gnawing at mind and soul are
answered. And when you have caught the spirit of things and are "in harmony
with the universe," you thank the people who opened the gate so that you could
pass into this great sympathy.
The music room is on the third floor, but you do not mind that, for there is
a strong magnet pulling you upward which is more powerful than the force of
gravity. Drawn to this height you are rested and Uchirked up" by the rare
atmosphere and become invigor-
ated by a response to this en-
vironment. Here you feel accom-
plished, for you can doubtless
sing the key song accurately, you
can beat time emphatically, read
music by taking your own time.
hum and write the melody of
America and one thing you are
sure of-the law of the key of C.
You go to your Arithmetic
class and here you enjoy mathe-
matics, for the man presiding
over it enables you to see sober
facts in funny lights and to stand
off and laugh at yourself for
multiplying ten apples by five
boys and dividing forty-eight seats by six rows. But you are cured of this trick,
for you are led to see that "cents multiplied by cents equal square cents, but all
cents are round." Reason is the chief characteristic of this place, for your every
statement is followed by a terrible why and time and again you are hopelessly
cornered and left to wiggle out as best your scattered wits will allow. But the
best part of the reason is the reasonableness which pervades the place, for this
establishes a standing sympathy and saves you from being lsuried under "roots"
In the reading room you give vent to your feelings or to some one else's
feeling. A persistent lady stimulates your imagination and fires you with enthu-
siasm so that you feel dreadfully wicked or sublimely good just as the occasion
demands. VVith shaking voice and nervous fingers you play the part of Shylock
on the Rialto, or with downcast faces and quaking knees you portray the agony
of Lady Macbeth in her midnightiwalk with such seriousness that the emotions
of your classmates are so touched that they give way to-laughter. Again you
Hatter Touchstone by giving his
words more weight than a jester
is capable of and so out of sheer
sympathy, your classmates hold
their faces straight. But you do
not mind, for a feeling of sym-
pathy pervades the place and
you are spurred on by a master-
ful inspiration. i
In the sunny Geometry class
you glow with good feeling, al-
though your imagination must
still be stimulated. Your mental
condition is variable, which un-
der the influence of a patient
trainer approaches an under-
standing of Geometric figures as
its limit. With closed eyes and alfated lireath, you try to image something that
has no length, no breadth, no thickness, only position. and then you inscribe in
' startlingly small segments, travel
hopelessly along indefinite lines
and are tangent to all circles but
that of reason. Indeed the only
thing that you do which you
should, is that you never meet
your parallel. But you are not
hopelessly lost, for a little woman
with a twinkle in her eye, pushes
up her sleeves and comes to the
rescue, sympathetically brushes
the "cob webs from your mindw
and proceeds by "an indirect
method" to make light out of
,.. . The Psychology class tempts
you. for it is here that you get
your stock of jokes and listen to the tales of the antics and adventures of Colum-
bus, and now and then to stories of the expressive actions of dear, little Mary
Lee. lf only you could hear more of that wee lady! Once in a while you pity
yourself and feel abused thinking over what might have been your accomplish-
ments if only your ancestors had understood "child development," but on the
whole it is a relief to have ,some one ,upon whom to shift the blame. Here you
are forced by the masterful mind before you to observe, to reflect, to reason and
to judge. Naturally you set these powers to work on what is before you, so you
observe the man, reflect upon his great mental power, reason as to how he
obtained it and decide that it is no wonder he is bald headed.
After thus vigorously exercising your mind, you fly to the gymnasium to
exercise your body. You love this old gymnasium, for it is a grand old place
and you run its length with a sense of freedom. Here you have capital fun, for
you haul unceremoniously the apparatus from the corners and spurred on by the
efforts of Tiny Zummer and Dorothy VVest, you swing yourself the length of
the ladder. But this place is a field of chivalry, for here 'midst fluttering ban-
ners of white and gold and the
rousing cheering from the side
lines, you helped defeat the
famous Alumni with the noted
Heald at their head. But occa-
sionally you enter alone with a
downcast face and limp pitifully
to the little room at the rear.
Then you are in search of the
school doctor, the practical nurse
and sympathetic comforter all in
one to cure a blinding headache,
treat an aching back, relieve a
painful throat or thaw a frozen
Dear to your heart is the
roomy drawing-room where you
settle into a chair and adjust the desk to fit your comfort. and then what works
of art you bring forth, landscapes are painted with cloudless lilue skies, straight
symmetrical trees, winding roadways and queer fences: ltouses and barns are
constructed with paper and paste: your friends are sketthed and dresses and
shirt waists are designed. But greater results than these take place, for the quiet
little artist with her exquisite taste, instills in you a sense of the beautiful by
keeping before you beautiful things. To the effectively hung pictures, soft.
restful tinting and cuplgoards of dainty china of the room she adds the beauty of
character that speaks in her quiet ntanner and shines in her clear eyes.
Room twenty-nine has a three-fold charm. You gather here to discuss the
proper way of managing a school, from the treatment of a boy with a temper to
adjusting the window shades to the comfort of all children's eyes, from the
ethical value of a comfortable seat to the fatal effects of fatigue upon the
memory. Then the responsil:ility of school teaching! And the dangers coming
from a misstep on your part! Nlfhy, you may spoil Henry's disposition by simply
"nagging," You are spurred on and encouraged to attempt this great task by
the patient and unceasing efforts of one who has a high ideal of the work of a
ln this same room you carry on your study of evolution-the literary devel-
opment of the race: and here as in Science you find that "0ntogony recapitulates
Phylogomyf' for children love the crude ballads just as their early ancestors
did. You follow the adventures of Roljin Hood upon the highway or in the
"good greenwoodn and here it is that your much belabored themes are picked
hopelessly 'tut not heartlessly to pieces. lllith what sighs you unfold them!
And how skeptically you look upon the brilliant decorations! Indeed the air.
laden with poor thoughts, mis-
spelled vvords, cast off phrases,
unheard of English, superfluous
semicolons and choppy para-
graphs, would be unbearably
oppressive but for the fun em-
bodied in a quiet body behind the
desk, vvhose laughing blue eyes
are a sun dispelling the clouds.
Again you fall to studying char-
acter, calling forth the three steps
of judgment and decide that her
motives are for your good, her
actions are sincere and the result
is that you love her.
And it is in this room, too, 1
that your "mind estranges itself
from itself, as it xx ere, that it may set itself over against itself as a special object
of attention." And the practical philosopher behind the desk lets you muddle
yourself up that you may straightyen yourself out. lint with what kindness and
respect your crude efforts at defining principle, philosophy and science are
accepted! You are spurred on to lecome a true social being, to make the most
of the present and to see good in everything by the working ideal before Xflll.
Oh, you defy anyone who says Latin is a dead language as again you mount
two flights of stairs and come to a room to do more climbing. You climb 0-rw'
six conjugations and Eve declensions, over L'aesar's great conquests and greater
constructions, over Cicero's thrilling orations and characteristic letters and over
Aeneas' wanderings and nvisfortuncs. Yes, by diligent work you sprechen
Deutsch to "beat the Dutch," lint still your climliing is not done, for through
two large brown eyes a soul beams upon you and by its serene calmness, its trust
and its earnestness, stirs your inner nature and sets you climbing not over but
upward. l W '
Now you enter a most mys-
terious place, the Grammar class,
and the mystery is that it is
neither dull nor dry. Here you
make your own definitions and
after forming definitions of a
sentence, attribute, or adverb
with the aid of nothing but your
head, how powerful you feel and
liow free from an old Grammar
book! But the method is not all
the charm for there is woman.
not tall but with stately grace
who is the "subject" of much of
your tltought and around this
subject gather many attributes
and your mind unconsciously
shows that the relation between the attribute womanly grace and the subject in
mind is a positive one.
Your study periods you
spend in the study hall but how
do you spend them! Oh, your
conscience priclcs when you think
of that tempting, misused hall
where ycu sometimes "doubled
up," where you "infringed upon
the rights of others" because you
were not always a "strictly social
being." You hear the echoes of
your whispers yet. "VVhat if
they were multiplied by all in the
room!" Sometimes you did per-
form the proper function here,
though, as when you had an
Algebra lesson to get in fifteen il
minutes or a map of Illinois to
draw in five and then you could shoot the people in the opposite corner who are
echoing your past performances.
You rush into the busy old library, fly into the stack room and hunt dili-
gently for a Frye's Geography for two long seconds and then go for help. In
an instant the book is in your hand and you feel cheap that you did not look in
the geography section and again you flounder hopelessly in the catalogue for
all the biographies of Lincoln. Once in a while you enter that library when you
are not in a hurry and you saunter back to the magazine rack and carefully select
the lightest reading there and settle down in the nearest chair. At last your
gaze fixes upon the two people who are unceasingly at work, the little brown
one bustling around, mounting her ladder or adjusting shades and the other
checking up stacks of books. How patient and faithful they are! Ch, you
never will keep a book overtime again, or take it without charging.
Then there is that little room where you have sat while your program was
cheerfully made out with every conflict skillfully avoided, you have stood there
while a doubtful excuse was ex-
amined and here you have begged
for class plays and the use of the
society hall. ln fact it is here
that all the knots of school life
are straightened out from the r- .,,,, ,lj
financial difficulties of the Senior
class to soothing the overwrought
minds of the Freshmen. Then
what would you do without the
accommodating little woman who
smooths your path by typewrit-
ing your outlines, keeping cor-
rectly all your grades, hunting
up your friends and caring for
your lost property.
But you have saved the best
for the last, the stately old audi-
torium where you, your fellow students and the row upon the platform are
thrilled by Addison or the fate of the "Little Tin Soldier." Here you fearfully
obtained your sole knowledge of Astronomy by stretching your imagination and
briskly moving from earth to sling you "heard tell of" the moving glaciers,
morains and eskas and here you finally solved the question of the japan-Russian
war. Here midst the fluttering banners of green and purple, l'erseus became a
Glidden and a Junior so disrespectfnlly donned your school garb and dashed
around with exactly your gait. And here it is that bravely and tearfully you
met for the last time with the friends that have grown so dear to you, that you
receive your certificate and start upon an uphill path-alone with sweet
memories. i .-Xmcls DAVIS.

A Tribute op Love
T IS customary to submit the manuscript of these pages to a process of red
inking. ,Twixt thee and we and the gate post this page is smuggled in.
We take license, in this open, underhanded way, to acknowledge our debt
to the goddess of this department whose red ink is always so mixed with good
will that it carries no sting. The efforts that have made the department possible
have been inspired by her gentle smile, the merry twinkle in her bonny blue
e'e and her indescribable way of making a body wade boldly in, keeping his
eye on the high-water mark.
g A Tribute and an Aspiration
LL the world is kin. ln a thousand ways plants are like animals, beasts
resemble men and all men are brothers. A decided mark of our kin-
ship is the universal desire to express what is within us, an impulse to
go and tell it. Listen to the frogs down in the pond. The dog is barking at
the moon. The chill wind whistles down the chimney the story of its wanderings.
The sea moans over the wreak it has made. The trees are singing of the summer
time to come. ln the Art Institute in Chicago hangs a picture of a group of three
women. Une, a brawny woman in home-spun work-clothes, her back to the
observer. is telling a bit of neighborhood news. Before her is a sweet-faced
mother with a babe in her arms and her countenance all compassion for the
unfortunate'one. Beside her is another who is so eager to run and tell the story
that she can scarcely wait to hear it. Through her all the town will know it and
know it worse than it is. The impulse to go and tell it has full possession of her.
The same tendency that makes the gossip, when turned into a worthy channel,
produces noblemen. Saul of Tarsus arose from the Damascus road with a burn-
ing desire to tell his experience to all the world. All the world is better because
he obeyed the impulse. r
It has been our privilege as students, some of us for two years, some for
three, to sit in the class-rooms of men and women who are inspired with zeal to
tell to us the best that schools and experience have taught them of life. In part by
words, more by deeds and most through neither words nor deeds alone but
through the subtle indefinable inlluence of a true teacher over a pupil, have they
given the best of themselves to us. T
Now we leave our teachers, each to go to his own little nook, ,there to tell.
through what he does and what he is, the things that he has learned. We have
not come up to the stature of our teachers. lVe have not learned all the lessons.
Probably we shall not be able to tell all that we have learned. Few of us shall
tell it as well as it has been told to us. But we can make sincerity and good
will characterize every ehfort. May the universal tendency to go and tell it ever
impel us to tell only what is best and to tell it with the ever increasing strength
that is born of kindliness and earnestness.

Miss Springis Letter
My Dear Editor:
I know not whether the time has passed Heetingly or slowly since my foot-
prints led outward from those immaculate halls of the N. I. S. N. S. and I de-
parted thence filled to the brim with that balm of wisdom intended for the
untried and hitherto untroubled depths of ignorance which then seemed to
abound in the world. Did I attempt to enumerate the number of the unsophisticated
and the untrained I have led into the path of the "higher life" and to the "fountain
of knowledgef' I fain would say, "but the time has been so short", and were I
to number the discouraging moments when the first step positively refused to lead
up to the second, or the fourth to the fifth, or how often the whole five seemed of
necessity to be taken in one spasmodic leap, I fain would say, "Commencement
was ages ago." Perhaps, dear editor, it is harder to "stand byw alone than it is
when one is surrounded by friends whose untiring patience, steadfast kindliness
and inspiring example we never fully appreciated until we were without them.
But since my battleground chances to be upon a "field of snow," where the
end of the North Pole nigh touches a city called Duluth, I feel that it would not
be amiss to say a word or two concerning those of its characteristics which im-
press me most.
Wfhat a paradise this is for the primary teacher! VVhat wonders can one not
accomplish in primary reading when one has but to step onto a street car to
meet a brave, valiant Hiawatha.
"Pale and haggard, but undaunted,
From the Wigwam Hiawatha
Comes and wrestles with the Modernsg
Round the street car spins the landscape,
Sky and forest reel together,
And his strong heart quakes within him."
Somewhat tattered and torn by civilization, true, but still stolid, straight-haired
and copper-colored enough for a type study. Wfhat inspiration would not come
to you when you can gaze at the real red man in his canoe of birch bark, going
"Forth upon the Gitche Gumee,
. Cn the shining Big-Sea-IVater.',
We have but to look out in our back yards to study the bears as they nose
around for scraps and the cubs chase each other up and down the telephone poles.
The deer, too, we can photograph as he stands a moment in the edge of the
thicket, sniffing the air while deciding whether his morning run will be up Fourth
Street or down Twenty-first Avenue East.
"Dark behind us rise the forests,
Rise the dark and gloomy pine trees,
Rise the iirs with cones upon them."
Truly, this is Hiawatha's country.
But the thing that fills the gap in every conversation, the thing that livens
every monotony by its variations, is the weather. Une day we walk through im-
mense tunnels of snow and the next day we trip jauntily on the drifts that hide the
trolley wires. Forty below is our average temperature and so accustomed do we
get to it that on an occasional hot day when the mercury climbs to zero, we
puff and pant in our linen dusters and ply our fans. This, of course, is winter.
As for the summers, there is a much-worn story up here of the man who said that
the coldest winter he ever spent was a summer in Duluth.
Seriously, Minnesota may have its drawbacks in the shape of weather which
is not always relished by one used to a warmer climeg and true it is that Duluth
is a rapidly growing city with the usual conditions which are not exactly ideal:
nevertheless, it is good to come west and grow up with the country.
But one forgets not for a single day Illinois and the N. I. S. N. S.
e ear After
SORT of bitter-sweet,-this year in the same town with our Alma
Mater,-like bidding farewell to friends and places after a delightful
visit, and then missing the train. Never more can we go to "General
Ex." and each day sees us, at 10:15, trying, desperately, it may be, to teach that
one-half equals two-fourths. We miss, too, a feeling of fellowship, because no
one asks us, "lVhere is the Rosenkranz lesson ?" or "VVhen do our note-books go
in ?" As a sort of balm, comes the almost guilty feeling with which we take
out a book or a magazine and know that the evening is ours to do with as we
wish. But one of our lawful rights as graduates has been denied us. Never
once can we say, with an air, "That's the way we did at Normal." And as to
teaching, our little Normal School ideas are accepted or rejected in the most
cold-blooded, matter-of-fact manner. The athletic events are our one refuge.
VVe are enthusiastic rooters still, when we happen to get with the old crowd. Qnly
when someone looks inquiringly at us do we realize that we are not known as old
students to everyone, and we are conscious that we ought to be, in appearance at
any rate, ,non-partisan.
But what should we have done if we had had to teach in a strange place this
year! No football games, no Halloween party in the Gym., no society pro-
grams, no contests, no basket ball, no base ball, and no club life, "no nothin'."
Surely it did seem that we were getting more than gospel measure when we were
again invited to Dr. Cooks home and enjoyed the same cordial reception as that
accorded us as students. So this has been the year "after," and not the year "out"
of school. Have we not been consulted as to how often it is advisable to cut
Gym or General Ex? And the most unkindest cut of all,-as to the meaning
of some obscure passage in Rosenkranz, or how to prove the Binomial Theorem!

H, those examinations
Which finish up the term!
Those awful questions they ask us
To find what we have learned!
My heart thumps like a trip hammer,
My fingers tremble with fear,
Perspiration breaks out all o'er me
And I wipe away a big tear.
At my right lies the gaping white paper,
Huge questions loom up on the wallg
My pencil is chewed into splinters:
My kerchief rolled tight in a ball.
I write but know not what I'm writing,
I look but know not what I see:
Rack my brains as I will I know nothing,
No, not so much as a flea.
The class bell jingles a warning,
The teacher jumps to his post,
Our papers are snatched from our fingers,
It's over-but I am a ghost.
VVell, here's to them when they're over!
But woe's to them when they're here,
Those awful examinations,
The brain-rending pests of the year.
the first orator? Ethel Bryant.
the first bluffer? Clara Smith.
the first jester? Mary Alley.
the first boss? Alice Garretson.
the first songster? Sarah McLean.
the oldest Senior? Tiny Zimmer.
the meekest man? Barradell.
the meekest woman? Mae Wilson.
were in the hole? The Gliddens.
never talked in class? Birdie Barnsback.
always went home earlyi Crocker.
knew the law of the key of C? Shea.
joshed the girls? Tearney.
reformed the English language? Edith Peebles.
shy of boys? Bessie Dunn.
the hardest worker? Cora Lotz.
the most bashful girl? Grace Hosley.

TO CATCH A MOUSE.
VVith a string and a crayon first circumscribe a circle about the mouse. Then
inscribe a polygon within the circle and reduce the polygon to an equivalent tri-
angle. QPrecaution-Be sure to get the mouse within the trianglej Drive the
mouse into one of the three angles of the triangle. Collect him by displacement.
Put him in a test tube, then pour on a ten per cent solution of Hydrochloric acid
and boil until a red precipitate appears. Under these conditions and with this
result, other things being equal, the mouse will bother you no more.
REMEDY Fora Nos'r.xI-Gi.x.
First, procure a table Cany size or shape will dol. Before it place a straight-
backed chair, upon which the individual is to be seated.
Second, set before him ink, pen and paper and allow the student ten minutes
to write a letter home.
Third, give him three geometrical problems to work out, six biological draw-
ings, two maps and an hour of Physics.
Fourth, after this has been performed, put the patient to bed at ten o'clock
and wrap up well. ln the morning there will be a decided change for the better.

ESIDES there was Billie. Virgil C. roomed with Billie. At school they
both sat up on the same big platform in the same kind of chairs.
Billie's eyes were blue, china blue, and his shiny brown locks were
parted exactly in the middle. Virgil C. admired parts.
After Billie and Virgil C. had known each other one whole day, Billie took
Virgil C. aside as they were going home from prompt half-past tive dinner, and
whispered to him.
"VVho's your mos' nintimate friend?" was what Virgil C. understood him to
whisper. Virgil C. had no idea what nintimate friend might be.
"Havent you got one P" demanded Billie. Virgil C. shook his head. Billie
put his lips close to Virgil C.'s ear.
'lets us be nintimate friends," said Billie.
Though small in bigness, Virgil C. was large in faith. He confessed him-
self glad to be a nintimate friend.
Virgil C. found that to be a nintimate friend meant to walk about the
campus arm in arm, and he was glad indeed to be one.
Things were very strange up at the big gray building. That one must get
up suddenly when a bell rang was strange. And there was "General Ex." a
strange and awesome place where one had to sit in a dreadful row on the platform.
The very manner of classihcation of those who came breathed mystery. The
sheep were separated from the goats, so to speak, the big girls all on one side of
the aisle, the big lgoys on the other. The sheep and the goats stared so! Billie
gazed at the sheep and Virgil C. gazed at Billie.
As time went on Billie seemed to know everything. ln all the glory of its
newness Billie brought his light gray, overcoat to school. Virgil C. looked and
grew hotg he had no such apparel. But a few short days and Virgil appeared
discreetly swathed in a light gray overcoat.
Yes, indeed. Virgil C. was "catching on."
At the big gray building it was quite the thing to be the owner of an auto-
graph album called a "Grade Book." Billie's page in Virgil Cfs book was a
triumph in red ink. l
llly hand and pen,

But tlod knows when."
And Virgil's small lingers had penned with difficulty:
"True friendship is a golden knot
Wfhieh .'flI.Q'ft'S' hands have tied,
By heavenly skill its textures wrought-
VVho shall its folds divide."

S li a Senior be found who hath not high respect for Rosenkranz, a ban
shall be put upon him and he shall be no more deemed wise or learned
in the school wherein he sojourneth.
If anyone be found groaning of the hard day's work or of the damp
and windy weather, or of the statutes of the school, he shall straightway be
given harder work to do, and those of more joyful mein shall look upon him
with scorn and shall say unto him, "The worst is yet to come," until that
his countenance shall change and become one of great joy, so that all shall
marvel at the great light that is come into his face.
If anyone shall continually forget to show himself at the Gym on the
days appointed for him there, his shoulders shall become rounded, and he
shall be despised for his weakly bearing and pale countenance.
lf anyone shall forget the eleventh hour of night to keep it, but shall
pursuephis pondering until the early morning hours, he shall become pallid
and hollow-eyed and shall be visited by goblins of despair so that he shall
no more rest until that he repent him of his evil.
lf anyone be found who honors not his teachers or his critic teachers.
he shall become a numskull and a castaway and be no more beloved in the
school whither he is sent.
If anyone shall kill a creeping thing upon the campus or flying in the
air, he shall be troubled with stings and bites of divers creatures and shall
no more be fit to behold the green of earth or the light of the heavens.
If anyone shall bluff in his classes he shall be found in such disfavor
among his fellows that they shall no longer End it pleasant to hold converse
with him, lut shall point at him the finger of scorn crying, "Shamel Shame l"
If anyone shall take rubbers that do not belong to him. he shall be
seized by tlie janitor and shall be niade to give back fully that which he did
take, even to the mud which rested thereupon.
If anyone be found to tell tales on his neighbor concerning his neigh-
bor's Sunday callers, his own Sunday callers shall desert him and he shall
sit within his own room desolate and alone.
lf anyone shall covet his neiglil:or's pompadour, or his neighbors sharp
pencil, or his themes, or his raincoat, or his voice, or anything that is his
neighl3or's so that he is late to his classes with looking upon them, the great
C shall be denied him, and he shall no more enter into his teachers favor.
If anyone shall be found speaking in the Library at an unseemly hour,
he shall be forcibly ejected by the ear, and shall no more be allowed to
enter into that Hall of Silence.
lf anyone be found throwing papers on the floors, he shall be made to
carry each piece, one at a time, to the office of the Great Pedagogue, who
shall cause him to tremble and to wear a countenance of mourning for his
