Did you ever hear of a beau knot? Did you ever tie one? Were simplified spelling universally used, in which case beau, bow, and bo, would be spelled exactly the same, one might think the question referred to physical contortion due, perhaps, to a cowardly blow below the belt. But the reference is rather to the good, old-fashioned b-c-a-u. perhaps bashful, perhaps barefoot, but not necessarily possessing either characteristic, judging from the two manly specimens in the above bow knot.
These “selected’’ ones need no introduction to a Peru audience, but for the sake of those who might puzzle over their identity, be it known that the beau in the lower left-hand bow, called L. R. Eastman, was chosen as the handsomest man in the Senior class. The girl chosen as the most beautiful, appears iust above and is known as Harriet Glasgow. In the upper right hand bow Lavern Mathews, who was chosen as the most respected man. looks forth; and just below is Katherine Gamble, who was chosen as the most respected girl.
It is not known whether any of these four people ever had a share in tying beau knots. Let them speak for themselves—but it may be safely said that they represent, by actual vote, the “bean ideals” and “beaux ideals” of the Senior class of 1915.

There arc knots of many descriptions.
There are beaux of many kinds, too;
But if you would tie one forever,
Start it elsewhere than here in Peru.
With bow knots we all are familiar,
They are easily tied and untied.
If you think beau knots stay tied forever,
The experiment sure you ne’er tried.
The start is cpiite simple and lovely.
But, though finished, the knot is ne’er true;
For scarce is it “off with the old love”
Before it is “on with the new.”
Mow different the bow knots of friendship!
They’ll still last when our school days are o’er!
And, if true friends while here at the Normal,
We’ll be true friends tho far from her door.
The social bow knot of our Normal
Out of friendship and comradeship grows,
The girls have their share in the tying,
But tis finished bv adding the beaux.
The shadows of the two hundred and fifty-six towers begin to lengthen.
The Euphrates rolls on, touched by the reddened splendors of the setting sun, whose last beams, reflected on gates of brass, make them glitter like doors of flame. The Hanging Gardens of Babylon, dew soaked, shed a fragrance for miles around. Lighted streets invite dance, frolic and promenade, and theaters and galleries of art lure the wealth, pomp, and grandeur of the city to entertainment rare. One hears commotion of riot and wassail intermingled on every street. A feast at the King’s Palace! a feast! a feast!
Look down the highway! Chariots, drawn by sleek and prancing horses, are loaded with Sir Galahad-like knights and charming ladies dressed in all the Syrian pomp and gorgeousness. Nearer and nearer they approach. The royal palace is now in full view and ready to receive. Fling wide the gates and let the guests enter! Everything is in readiness—cupbearers and chamberlains are there to do their part. Listen to the soft music of the flute—to the rustle of
