THE LIMIT. 9 faces of a smiling young French girl and another young girl with a very Grave coun-W tenance. The artist will refuse all offers for this picture and will keep it hung in a promi- nent place in his studio to remind him of thi happy days spent in Phelps. As the years pass on his fame as an artist will increase and his paintings will be eagerly sought after by all lovers of art. i NYell pleased with the future revealed by this page. I unrolled the next one. This bor. the name of Laura Durand. Miss Durant will enter Wellesley in a few weeks. XN'liili' in college she will be especially noted for hei fondness for theatricals. VVhen not arrang ing-for plays to be given by the students, she will most always be found at 'the theater I-Ier fondness for the stage will increase ti such a degree that she will finally leave co' lege and organize a company of her own They will make their first appearance in Vai Derveer's hall at Oaks Corners, presenting the well known play, 'fEast Lynnef, Miss Durand taking the part of Lady Isabel. Thi. venture will not be successful and aftei organizing several other companies and meet- ing with failures with all of them, she wil enter a dramatic school in Boston. There her talents for the stage will be recognized and after a careful course of study she will go to Berlin to complete her study for the stage She will make her first appearance as a star in London and will be greeted with the great- est applause. She will then tour Europe and America with a company of her own. In both of these countries she will be hailed as an actress who is destined to become noted throughout the world. Anxious to see whose future would next be revealed I unrolled another paper. This proved to be a sheet torn from a matrimonial paper, bearing the date of 1930. Glancing down the column I came to an article marked with red ink which read: "XVanted-A highly educated and accomplished lady who speaks Huently French and German and who is also in accomplished musician, would like to cor- 'espond with some gentleman, any national- ty, with a view to matrimony. Address Qvlarieslzouise Vosburgh Bussey, Phelps, N. Y." I paused here a long time wondering how -his could be so, butas I could reach no sat- sfactory conclusion I laid it aside and drew 'orth another. ' ' This bore the name of Gertrude Donley. lihe future of Miss Donley is very uncertain. Xs nearly as can be foreseen, however, she vill next year engage to teach' in a district ,chool. At the end of a few months she will esign her position to marry a young tele- jraph operator, formerly a popular 'newsboy if Phelps. She will then settle -down to Jedded life in a littgle village in Western New fork. 1 ' A Upon the fifth page was a picture which 'epresented the future of a classmate entirely lifferent from the rest. The picture was that Jf a lonely island in the Mid Pacific. The last rays of the setting sun were falling upon a group of savages gathered about a' young .nan, standing with an open Bible in his hands. In the face of this missionary who was giving his life to the noble work, I recognized Charles Benton. VVhen Ifremem- bered the saintly and dignified actions that had characterized his entire school life, I was not at all surprised by what this page revealed. I find that the class is to number an author among its members, for upon the next page was the picture of a book, handsomely bound, with its title and the author's name written upon it: 'fTeddy and If' a love story, by Frances Hariette Curry, Author of "The Art of Flirtationf' "Courtship Under Diffi- culties,', and other stories. Surely the class has every reason to be proud of its only mem- ber who is to enter upon such a promising

Fascinated by this strange spectacle, I kept my eyes fixed upon it. and to 'my great astonishment saw that it was coming directly toward me. Finally it fell with a great crash at my very feet. XYhen I had sufficiently recovered from my fright and surprise to look around me, I saw a large rock lying upon the ground split into two pieces. The end of a small iron box projected from one of these pieces. I drew it out and to my great amazement saw my own name writ- ten upon it. On opening the box, I found that it contained a roll of papers. A card lay upon the top bearing this inscription: "A glimpse into the future of the class of l906." I eagerly removed the papers from the box. My wish was realizedg the things I had so long wished to know were there written and 6 pictured before me. l The first sheet that I drew forth bore the future of Earl Bradbury. This young man after completing his studies in the High School will take a course in Art at Syracuse University. XYhile at Syracuse. he will gain considerable fame as a cartoonist and will help pay his way through college by drawing pictures for the comic section of the Syracuse Herald and other papers. After he has completed his college course, he will go abroad to study under a famous Italian painter. -Xlthough he would rather study under French instructors, for reasons best known to himself he will be obliged to keep away from France. .Xfter several years he will return to ,-Xmerica and establish a studio in New York city. He will first attract public notice by a painting called "Visions of the Past," which represents a grey haired man seated before a fire, smok- ing. In the wreaths of smoke are pictured the

She will next year enter Brockport Normal School. After completing her course she will enter upon her duties as a teacher. She. will be very successful and after several years will open a private school in Philadel-A phia for teaching good manners and social eti- quette, etc. She will have a special class for. young men in which they will be taught the correct way to ask permission of a young lady to accompany her home, and, also, how and when to propose. In order to impress upon the young men the importance of these' things, she will declare that a good many girls remain single because the gentlemen, either do not use tact or because they are awkward in proposing, and will mention her-, self as a sad example. This school will enjoy' the distinction of being the only one of its kind ia the United States, and will be patron-fi ized by people from all parts of the world. Miss Alcott will continue to be at the head of this school for a great many years and when old age at last overtakes her she will cheerfully give the work over to other hands, feeling that she has accomplished her mission in life and that her work will be of everlasting benefit to women everywhere. ' As I finished reading these wonderful futures, I fancied I could see my classmates in the years to come, scattered throughout the world, each following the path fate has laid out for them, some winning fame and honor, others spending their lives in helping their fellow creatures. Witli many thanks to the mysterious power that had brought these rolls into my possession, I laid them aside, hoping that I should some day see all their predictions fulfilled. SCHOOL LIFE. Class Poem, Edna Jane Alcott. School life holds many joys For girls and boys. Every moment they dearly treasure, Study is a constant pleasure. They study German and French, if Their thirst for knowledge is hard to quench. Their ,heads are filled with Latin and Greek, Till they hardly know what language they speak. The end and aim of the student's heart, Never for a moment does depart, Is to conquer Regents, so hard of late, And endeavor their store of knowledge to relate. If the required standing is obtained, Juniors and Seniors they are named. VVhile Sophomores and Freshmen follow in A the line And think that they are quite as fine. VVe, the class of naughty six, Have accomplished all our tricks, And with our motto before us for all our needs, May we ever cling to it, HNot words but deeds " And now with commencement in sight All things should indeed seem bright 'Q 5 2 And, classmates, although we mav never again be together Let us sadly bid farewell to our happy school days forever,
