with a pack of books. VVhen she was asked
what her intentions were and what subjects
she wished help in, she quickly replied, "not
any only Caesar, Geometry, Physics, Drawing,
Music, English History, English, Greek and a
few hundred more subjects." She has proved
her great ability by mastering Greek in half
a year. She sat in one of the back seats, but
there was so much noise her teacher moved
her to the front seat for her own good. She
is favored very much by the college students,
especially those at Syracuse, and annoys our
musician by wearing a Syracuse fob with 1908
on it. Her duty has been to settle debates,
keep peace, and tonight she will read the class
Six years ago our Secretary and Treasurer
came into the Academic room and has con-
quered everything that came in her way
except her ambition. In music, she excels
and is the only accomplished musician in the
class. She has only a few admirers, but she
admires many. She favors the students at
Colgate, while she holds those at Syracuse
in less esteem. She has been extremely happy
of late, for the fortune teller disclosed a very
happy future for her. She believes the right
one will come unexpected some day, so she
tries to be smiling all the time. That is why
she is smiling so tonight.
Our essayist began in the lowest grades
and by gradual progress she has accom-
plished her end. She is greatly appreciated
by her teachers, for she always has her les-
sons. She studies all the time when school is
in session and reads dime novels during vaca-
tion. Some time ago she met a Geneva High
School student and they worked together
nicely until Teddy left school. Then she
asked assistance of another Fred, but he only
proved to be a mechanical student and pre-
ferred the prophetess. She wishes now to be

THE CLASS HISTORY.
Sadie Gertrude Donley.
.VVhat could be more interesting at such a
time than the history of the Class of 1906?
Volumes might be written .on the trials and
disappointments andhappiness and joys of
each individual in the class. There are many
accomplishments which - arerworthy to be
lmentioned but ,will have to be omitted here.
lHowever, we havehere only a short sketch
jof theirbschool life., A

our President. Vffhen he, first opened his
leyes, he foundhimselfin our glorious metrop-
olis of, New York. He. tried hard to appre-
ciate his privileges .of city life, but he knew
the great desirefor. nature and her marvelous
'works would never cease until he might see
her as she is.
At last, though waiting many years, he
bade farewell to the tumult and noise of the
city and glided along up the Hudson. As he
journeyed along. he heard, by chance, that
there was a wonderful place in Central New
York which had a foundry of knowledge.
XYhen he arrived at Phelps, for that was the
place, he passed the building and his desires
were satisfied. At once he entered the school
and has made rapid strides toward the place
which he now occupies. At the same time
he began the study of French-not so much
by books as by nature itself. This, of course.
would cease for a time, owing to his own neg-
ligence or that of his instructor, but these few
lessons were made up by private discussion
and a little walk. These instructions lasted
until a short time ago. Qne night he went to
a dance rejoicing in the fact he could surpass
anyone in French, but whether he contracted
a cold or some terrible disease no one could
quite determine, for he can speak only a few
words now at a time. He contents himself
now by helping the little alien who came to
the foundry seeking new kinds of fruits, espe-

of German students in Geneva it is doubtful
whether she can secure the right instructor
Another important personage is our proph-
etess. She is so quiet that one would scarcely
know when he is in her presence except for
the magical influence which surrounds her.
For a long time no one could solve how she
knew what were to be asked in the examin-
ations. By careful observations at last it was
determined that she could look into the
future. If you wish your fortune told consult
her at once, but be sure to bring your pocket-
Our poet is the sunbeam of the class. She
lives away down on the plains that are cov-
ered with pines. She trudged the weary
country roads to a small school house in order
that she might expand her intellectual capac-
ity. She was successful, for when she came
here begging admittance the doors at once
were opened to her. She is so perfectly
endowed with imagination and the power of
expression that she is able to present ideas
in new, harmonious and beautiful form. See-
ing her ability, the class chose her for the
poet. She has many suitors, but none suits.
She is waiting for a trip to Shortsville or
