MISS ELIZA C. MORGAN
In the reception room at Mount Vernon Hall hangs the picture of a little white-haired woman, Miss Eliza C. Morgan, word of whose death came to us not long ago. Miss Morgan died January 20. 1915. at the advanced age of 86, in Rochester. . Y., at the home of her niece.
Miss Morgan was preceptress of Mount Vernon Hall and teacher of rhetoric and history for over a quarter of a century. She was called to this position under the presidency of Gen. T. J. Morgan, in 1872. and resigned in 1898. Since leaving Peru, Miss Morgan has spent several winters in Washington. 1). C.. though she always regarded Rochester. X. Y., as her home.
A great spirit has finished its work, and has been released. The world of Old Peru moves on unconscious, but the children of the State Normal at Peru have been blessed in her coming, and they who knew her and felt her optimism, her cheer, her courage, and her belief in the gospel of hard work, can never cease to be thankful that Miss Morgan lived among them.
"Sunset and evening star.
And oik clear call for me.
And may there be no moaning of the bar When I put out to sea.
But such a tide as moving, seems asleep.
Too full for sound of foam.
When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home.
Twilight and evening bell.
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell When I embark.
Kor tho from out the bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far.
I hope to see my pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar.”

The present Cass County Club was formally organized on October 26. 1914. The enthusiastic spirit of the Club was evidenced by the fact that almost before the Club officers were elected at the first meeting a “get-together” picnic was mentioned and the suggestion was heartily endorsed by everyone present.
Since the Club is largely composed of “live wires.” no time was wasted, but arrangements were quickly completed, and the picnic was held in Neal’s pasture the first- week in November. In fact, the plans were made so hastily that notification of the weather man was entirely forgotten and the evening could hardly be called balmy. However, a rousing bonfire soon dispelled the gathering gloom and the supper provided by the capable committee was the only other thing required to complete the enjoyment of the evening.
Gathered round the blazing fire, provided with the customary sizzling wienies and steaming coffee, the various members told stories until suddenly, through all the cheer, came the realization that a snow storm was coming uninvited, and the home-going was rather unceremonious.
However, memories of the fun still linger, and the evening will be remembered by all who were there as one of the jolliest of the year.
The Club now numbers twenty-eight members. Since Cass County sends new representatives to Peru each year, the places of this year's Seniors will be more than filled next September. Boasting three such Faculty members as it does, the Cass County Club will doubtless become a regular school institution. and in the future the original members may say with pardonable pride, "The big Peru Cass County Club? Oh. yes. I helped start that away back in
