'Tis Friday; the week’s toil is ended; You’d think some recreation fine. Just go to Everett or Philo— I’m sure you will have a good time. On Sunday afternoons, are you lonely? Do you wish your home friends near? There’s the Christian Associations— You're always welcome there. Then, of course, there are athletics; If you can’t be a shining light You can at least stay on the side lines And cheer those engaged in the fight; Do you delight in class-spirit? You'll never find it tame— The Normal School Olympics Or the Inter-Class Basket-ball games. I,o, here comes the Spring, and all Nature Is clothed in her garments of green. And the buttercups and daisies Among the grasses are seen. Hark! Do you hear that sweet music Which comes floating on the air? 'Tis the time of our May Festival; Come drive away dull care. These arc but few of the pleasures We enjoy here in old Peru. Where nature herself smiles upon us In splendor the whole year through. Now, won't you come and with us Have a share in these good times, too? Yes, come and be a student. A student in old Peru. —Gilbert

$tub?tit £iff iit ?pru Come with me and be a student, A student in old Peru, When Autumn has decked our oak trees In colors of varied hue; When squirrels in the branches arc playing And the acorns, so plentiful, too. They arc taking into their houses T To keep them the long winter through. If you don't know the road, ask your agent. He’ll tell you just what to do. And where you will have to make changes Before ever you get to Peru. And after a tiresome journey, (No sleep the whole night through) You hear the brakeman calling: "The next station is Peru." At last you've arrived and arc settled. As you watch other students pass by. And you meet with new friends, you wonder, “Arc they as busy as I?" «p. Up in the morning early, before the break of day. You rise, and at seven-forty-five To class you wend your way. After your class is Chapel; You enter. What’s all this fuss? It’s only the Seniors declaring. "There’s nothing the matter with us." The Juniors and Sophs, too, are yelling: You wonder what they've got to say? ’Tis' something about "J-U" and "S-O-" Perhaps you'll find out some day.

(Hif ©ptimist Any Nebraskan would feel his heart leap for joy were he, after a long, solitary journey in a foreign land, to hear of the coining of another former resident of the Golden Rod state, and right gladly would lie strike hands with the traveler whose eyes had lately been gladdened by the sight of our rolling prairies and gorgeous sunsets, and who had recently beheld the majestic undulations of our waving wheat fields and the emerald splendor of our native maize. The simple fact that they had much in common; that both knew of the unlimited possibilities of the region; that both loved the hills and grassy plains, and were familiar with and interested in the occupations of the people and in their welfare, would establish between them a bond of sympathy and mutual association. Close investigation reveals, however, that a similar feeling of relationship exists among persons belonging to one of the most general divisions of mankind. “Race, color, or previous condition of servitude” does not prohibit membership. The only entrance requirements arc a brave heart behind a never-fading smile and a cheerful disposition, or at least the firm determination to become possessed of one. With these essentials as a passport, the applicant may be confident of a hearty greeting from his brother optimists. Since it is the misfortune of the greater part of the human family to be constantly in the melancholy attitude of "viewing with alarm,” an optimist, real or pretended, stands out prominently from the background formed by such of his co-workers as see only the dark cloud and who have no faith in the existence of the silver lining. I have said, an optimist real or PRETENDED. Men of talent, whose minds have conceived new ideas concerning the construction or concoction of new articles, find it obligatory to maintain the greatest secrecy with regard to their conceptions. Even with their rights protected by patent, they experience a great deal of annoyance from the manufacture of counterfeits, which may so closely resemble their own production as to deceive the majority of prospective customers. Some of these imitations are entirely worthless; the majority arc of less value than the original: a small percentage arc of equal worth; and on rare occasions, we find that THE AUTHOR OE THE SIMULATION IS ACTUALLY ENTITLED TO GREATER CREDIT THAN IS THE INVENTOR OF THE ORIGINAL. The same distinctions with regard to variations in quality and virtue are found to be applicable to the different grades of optimists. The pretender that wears a never-fading grin, and boasts of his ability to see the "bright side,” but whose faith suffers a hopeless relapse as soon as trouble comes within range of him, is by far the most common and well-known. It is this species which is always ready to offer consolation to OTHERS who are in despair. If the afflicted one be a Missourian whose
