LAURA SWEENEY .... Salutatory .... Viva Craddock T HE purpose of this book is to give to the patrons and pupils of our public schools something by which they may remember the school as a whole, as well as our class. To us it seems fitting that we should dedicate this An¬ nual to a person most worthy and best known of all connected with this institution. We sincerely believe Mrs. Sweeney to be unanimously considered as such because she has taught here so many years and has gained the respect of all who know her. Her cordiality and pleasant smile has won for her the love of all her pupils, present and past. We know that anyone with the character she pos¬ sesses must influence those with whom they come in contact. It is true that influ¬ ence will, in a measure, shape the lives of those who come within its reach. And we would not forget what our other teachers have done for us. They have, to the best of their ability, cooperated in spurring us on to the greatest efforts which we were capable of making. We, as graduates, feel the truth of this state¬ ment for, as we know now, our teachers have gauged our possibilities and have found in our natures that to which they could appeal, and, thereby, hold our atten¬ tion to our school work. Our work has been practical. It is easily seen how, by the use of the appara¬ tus, we have been able to get a vivid conception of theories and truths, which might otherwise have been vague and, perhaps, misunderstood. The study with the help of the apparatus was made possible by the school board who amply supplied the necessary articles and, thereby, showed their interest in our educational progress. However, the members of the Board of Education are representatives of that body of people who pay taxes for the maintenance of our public school. And among these taxpayers are the parents, who, with many a sacrifice on their part, send their children to school, and anxiously await the time when thev can sav that their boy or their girl has completed the high school course, and has reached a goal long anticipated by both. The pupil enters the school and gains much by his fellowship with his school¬ mates. During the first three years of our high school life we looked to t hose who were ahead of us; as Seniors we were spurred onward by the first glimpse of the goal, and, now that goal is reached, we feel as though we have accomplished something. Looking into the future just a little, we know that our education will prove to be of great value. We shall be able to comprehend more of the world and its mysteries; we shall be able to associate with learned men and be capable of getting a better conception of their ideas. We have that, which, if pnt to test, will earn us a livelihood and make us, so to speak, independent of others. i ' hen, too, in this day and age of our prosperous nation, an advanced education is necessary to give us the standing among men, which our fathers and grandfathers possessed with their meagre instruction, obtained from teachers whom we should now call incompetent. Thus, we see the value of our twelve years’ work and, when we start out for ourselves, we shall more vividly realize its worth to us. Perhaps T too, we can make it of value to others, for I am sure that if we can convince some person that a good education is the all-important factor of a successful life, we shall arouse in him a desire for knowledge. And, when he perceives that his greatest pleasure is con¬ versing with learned men on subjects with which he has some acquaintance, he will be glad that he made the effort to gain that knowledge. As Salutatorian, in behalf of the class of 1910, I bring you a happy greeting at this our commencement season. We have labored earnestly and have endeavored to prove ourselves worthy of your kindness toward us. We wish to express our gratitude to those who have made our graduation a possibility. It is our earnest wish that, during the years that follow, we may ever be conscious of this gratitude, for it may serve as an inspiration to us to be helpful to those who may struggle under the same diffiuclties that we have met. Then, when we shall have graduated from life’s great school, our commencement shall be the more glorious. . ... Board of Education .... Edward L. Wagoner Edward E. Wagoner was born in Girard, Mich. His father, Graton H. Wagoner, was a well-to-do farmer of Girard, and began his son’s education by sending him to the nearby school. Completing the work there, Mr. Wagoner taught in the country schools for a few years. Eater, he became a stu¬ dent at Valpariso, Ind., and at the age of twenty- seven, graduated from the scientific department. After graduating, the next two years were spent in teaching in Indiana. The Terre Haute Street Rail¬ way and Electric Eight Co. next claimed three years of his time. He then came to Quincy, and, for three years, was engineer at the power house. For the past seven years, he has been connected with the McKenzie Milling Co., as chief engineer. He is also a stockholder in the company. Mr. Wagoner is President of the Board and his many years in the teaching profession have qualified him for this position. The exper¬ ience and the position enable him to cope with school problems, and, to appreciate them from a teacher’s viewpoint. Riclujrd T. Baldwin Richard T. Baldwin was born June 20, 1881, at Ida, Mich. Finishing the high school course at Port Huron in 1901, he entered the literary de¬ partment of Albion college and graduated with the class of 1905. Soon after, he married Har¬ riet E. Riddick, who graduated in the same class. During the first year after he left college, Mr. Baldwin superintended the schools at Vandalia, Mich. In February, 1906, he was called to Win- amac, Ind., to take the editorship of the Wina- mac Republican, a county seat republican organ, while its editor spent nearly a year in campaign¬ ing work as secretary of the state central com¬ mittee. When this work was completed early in 1907, Mr. Baldwin became proprietor and editor of the Quincy News. The paper received a new birth and growth, and after continuing in opposi- richard t. Baldwin EDWARD L. WAGONER tion to the Quincy Herald for some time, lie ef¬ fected the merging of the two papers into the Quincy Herald. That paper has been enlarged and improved until it ranks high among the pa¬ pers of our county. Mr. Baldwin is one of the foremost men of the town, being active in relig¬ ious as well as business affairs. He is the young¬ est member of the Board and holds the office of Secretary. He has been engaged in educational work, and, being an editor, has in mind both the interests of the school and the people. FELIX A. MCKENZIE (‘lix A. McKenzie Felix A. McKenzie was born in 1860, near Williamstown, Va., and received his early educa¬ tion in that locality. Twelve years of his later life were spent as a traveling salesman of machin¬ ery. He then became a millwright and followed that business for several years, having the gen¬ eral superintendence of the construction of upwards of fifty different mills. In this capacity Mr. McKenzie was quite widely known throughout the country, working- in various parts of the United States. Later locating in Quincy, he rebuilt and added to the mill in which he began and still continues the milling business. A controlling interest in the company is held by him. Thru his efforts, the business has been increased until he has the largest buckwheat plant in the United States. The formula for the buckwheat compound is original with him. Mr. McKenzie is the oldest member of the Board, in point of service. He is a man who has a prac¬ tical education gleaned from valuable experience and views onr school problems from the practical side. He has held the Treasurership of the Board the past two years. Daniel W. App Daniel W. App has been a resident of Quincy for the past twenty-seven years. He was born at Selins Grove, Pa., in 1854. At an early age, he moved to Brisol, Ind., and finished the course then offered in the Bristol schools. For one year he was a student at Notre Dame, after which he took a business course at the Parsons Business College, at Kalamazoo, Mich. He spent three years in the west as a telegraph operator, and in 1883, located in Quincy. For four years, Mr. App acted as night operator at the L. S. M. S. station, at the expiration of which time he was given charge of the freight department and made DANIEL W. APP Clarence C. Jones The Quincy people have a trustworthy and competent representative in C. C. Jones. Mr. Jones is the only member of the Board who is truly a native. He was born in Quincy township and attended Quincy High School. After finish¬ ing; here, he took a business course in the Val- pariso Business College. Taking a position with the Jonesville Milling Co., he was given charge clarence c. JONES of the entire commercial department of the com¬ pany. In 1899, he located in Quincy and took charge of a similar department in the cement plant, where be began to study the industry of cement manufacture. He has attained a thorough working knowledge of the business and is considered an authority on the subject of cement making. At the annual meeting of the Portland Cement Company, recently held at Cold- water, he was elected Vice-President and also made General Superintendent of the Quincy plant. Mr. Jones is a citizen of whom we may be proud. We believe in the old maxim, “still water runs deep,” and, that Mr. Jones is not an exception to the rule. He thinks much before arriving at conclusions, and, when once formed, they are worthy of consideration. The people, his constituents, have in Mr. Jones a wide-awake, up-to-date, interested school representative—one in whom they mav have absolute confidence. General Agent here. This position he has held honorably and capably for twenty-three years. Mr. App is also a member in high standing in the K. of P. Podge. It is safe to say that Mr. App firmly believes in boys and girls, and no other member of the Board is more interested in their welfare than he. (The foregoing sketches were written by Edward R. Lampman.) The Class of 1910 wish to express their gratitude to all who have cor|- tributed toward the success of this volume of the " Senior. " We are particularly indebted to Miss Susie R pp, T2, for the Ode to the Motto apd the character verses on the rqerqbers of the Senior class; also to Miss Ruth Cole ar d Mr. Delbert Whaley for the per, drawings and cartoons. We also wish to thanK the merchants and business rqer of Quincy who have contributed liberally in a financial Way. We trust that the people, our friends, into Whose h a nds the production may come, will consider our limitations and criticize Kindly. • © o • • • • • A Toast To the Faculty ‘Tis a jolly old school, Yet held strictly to rule Is the famous High School up at O, We love it so well, Who have been there a spell, You’d love it yourself if you knew How well it is taught And managed throughout By Wilson and his trusty crew. He is great to command, And his smile, ever bland, Inspires each to strive with a will, Can teach or can sing To the taste of the king, Just the man his position to fill. Other gleams light the way, Both at study or play, Small (Wickes) can produce a great light Though not set so high As to illumine the sky, She’s a beacon to guide us aright. Oh, merry the chase, And exciting the race We are having, diplomas to win, By a (Fox) we are led, Hence we plunge straight ahead, A prize fit for the fittest of men. Cheerful (Burns) the next light, Yet exceedingly bright, And so steady the gleam it doth shed, We shall all rue the day When she leaves us for aye, Fond farewells we’ll shower on her head. Oh, this jolly old school, Where love is the rule, We are sorry to leave it today; Here progress we’ve made, And formed friendships so staid We shall cherish the old school alway. SUPERINTENDENT U.

There were several of us girls, tidy in clean white aprons, sunbonnets on our heads, a book in one hand and the other fat fist pressed hard into our apron pocket. We went shyly up the broad steps, then into the schoolroom and seated ourselves in a little community of our own. There were the boys, too, whose sturdy little-man¬ nish ways clearly distinguished them as beginners; but they were not as shy or as timid as we, for they looked and acted very unconcerned as they trudged into the room and were seated with the rest of us. We can well remember those first days at school, the friends we made, the les¬ sons we learned, the games we played, how hard it was to be and keep still, how patient the teacher was and how she appeared, as well as many of her ways. What a wonderful year it was! We had our love affairs, our quarrels, our reconciliations. We were angry if anyone brought the teacher more apples than we did and we envied the boy who could get the most gum in his mouth at once. We tried to do everything the older pupils did and we were green with envy when we looked at the reckless sixth graders. Oh, would we ever, ever be twelve years old, and be able to draw those wonderful maps of Africa? Year by year we went on as the work grew harder and the lessons longer. Some days good lessons, some days poor, but going ahead slowly and surely. The years passed. We reached the sixth grade, but it wasn’t half so soul-satisying as we had anticipated. We now lifted our ambitious gaze to the Senior class. How awe-inspiring was that magic word, “Diploma!” How perfect to our prejudiced eyes was the behavior of the Seniors. “The King can do no wrong” we thought, and we longed for the happy time when we, too, could carelessly saunter up the street to the schoolhouse, mem¬ bers of the class of 1910. Discouragements came thick and fast; a bright day encouraged, a dark one made our outlook gloomy; but still we pressed on toward the goal, and we are here today, the “Thirteen” class of 1910. So have we builded our ship, staunch and strong enough, we hope it to be to “laugh at all disaster , And with wave and whirlwind wrestled ’ Today we launch our ship and our friends are with us to break on the prow of our vessel the champagne bottle of their love and good wishes. We leave port with sun shining, a smooth sea and our friends waving us “God speed.” Tomorrow we will be 1 ‘Like ships far off at sea , Outward and onward bound are we; Before , behind and all around , Bloats and swings the horizon ' s bouna. " Today the last cable which binds us to our high school days is severed. But we carry with us our charts, compasses and our wireless and we know there are lighthouses to help us on our way. Then too, all around us are other crafts that will quickly respond to signals of distress. Tomorrow we shall go beyond the harbor bar and more will be expected of us as morrow by morrow the time sweeps by, and more must we do to make ourselves worthy of the esteem of others. A ship which has never sailed for the first time knows only of the land which it is leaving. We know only the experiences of the Past; the Future is the unknown land toward which we journey. As we leave the harbor and pass out into the sea of life, we will notice at first only tiny waves, but the longer we sail we will see the troughs become deeper and the crests higher. The troughs must come in order that we may meet and appreciate the following crests; yet we must all steer with a steady purpose, else in some storm our bark go under. It is not the ripple on the surface that tries the make and material of a ship; it is the storm, the high winds and the waves which show them best of all. We are not all bound for the same harbor, but there are many toward which we may direct our course. One may steer his ship toward the port of Wealth and at last gain it, but often with long deprivations and friends forsaken or betrayed, for the greed for wealth causes man, in many instances, to infringe upon the rights of his fellows, and, as age advances, he enjoys no confidence and sometimes no respect from them except the respect which wealth alone brings. He may have many com¬ forts which are denied the poorer, but what are these compared to the love and trust of many friends? We recognize the fact that one may become wealthy thru honest labor and so use his wealth that the general interests of mankind may be furthered. He who acquires wealth under such conditions will prove himself a ben¬ efactor in whatever society his lot may be cast. But let us consider another harbor. It may be that of Fame. To become fam¬ ous is the aim and desire of not a few in the present age. Fame may be compared to a bubble which is soon to burst and fade away in mist. Fame is that by which others know us; it may be one thing today, and the opposite tomorrow. A man may become as famous through an ignoble deed as by one which is virtuous. And for the sake of fame a man is oftentimes willing to sacrifice the principles of manhood on its altar. We must even confess that politics and literature, even religion and philantrophy are used as a means by which they may attract public attention. There is still another port which many seek. It is the port of Usefulness. Each day’s journey, if we steer aright, may bring us nearer this port, and it should be the duty of everyone to lead this simple, helpful life and extend the glad hand wherever it is needed; or in the words of Sam Walter Foss, " If you see a man in woe , walk right up and sav ' Hello ' " Vet how often this port is forgotten in the mad struggle for the Wealth or Fame port or some other equally guiltless of true happiness. Who can destroy the fact in a neighbor’s eyes that we have helped him, if we have done so? We all wish to be remembered, and looking backward we remember the moments and the people, who by an encouraging word or act, have made our shipbuilding easier. Likewise, will we not be remembered for little deeds of kindness if we perform them daily? It should be the duty of everyone to make the practice of trying to help some¬ one each day until it may become second nature to inspire and encourage those around us. ’Tis true we all desire a comfortable livelihood, but if by chance we should become wealthy, there is much good we may do with our wealth. Then let us lead this helpful life that at the close of each day we may hear the soft “well done” of the inner voice, and, as we grow older, enjoy the confidence and trust of those about us. We will meet many other ships on onr journeys, some going our ways and some in others, and let us remember that a joyful hail from a passing vessel often bright¬ ens a whole day’s journey. So in whatever direction we may sail, we hope to be a credit to our friends and a success in life; and wherever we steer, let us be upright and honest, strong to grasp opportunity, pure in heart and true to ourselves in motive and in deed, for it has been said that “he who is true to himself cannot be false to any man.” So, as the horizon, as far as we can see, bounds our opportunities now, let us not be content with the lower deck, but climb to the bridge so that the view may be bro adened and that we may catch a glimpse of undreamed of lands. Then let us keep the harbor light in view and steer straight for the port of our ambitions. • • • • The Juniors Irene Buckley • • • • I was interested recently in reading Ridpath’s “History of the World,” but was disappointed to find that it made no mention of the members of the il- 2oi lustrions Class of 1911. I concluded, therefore, to write a chapter of Mod- ern History with the suggestion that it be appended. “During the spring of 1906, with jealous and envious eyes, they (the present Juniors) watched the Seniors as they carelessly wandered up the stairs, grown sacred as the dividing line between the grades and the High School, but in the fall of the same year, they themselves ascended those same steps with palpitating hearts, filled with an awe of something, they knew not what. But realization came when their ears are assailed by scathing and sarcastic remarks on their infantile actions. They soon settled down to the work in the eighth grade. In the fall of 1907, we saw the girls with dresses lengthened several inches, the boys with long trousers, no doubt in an endeavor to suit external appearance to the dignity of real high school students. They resumed their places in the as¬ sembly room with many more added to their number. Dike all bashful freshmen, they hardly dared to move from their seats for fear of making some mistake which would call forth a smothered snicker from some of the other pupils who seemed to have nothing to do but watch them. The next year, like all Sophomore years, proved uneventful with the exception of the pleasure which, in remembrance of the year just past, they took in the dis¬ comfiture of the new Freshmen. At the beginning of the next year the Juniors, with the Seniors, acquired the dignity of being separated from the Sophs and Freshies and the levity of the under-classmen in a room devoted entirely to them¬ selves. When the Senior class began to choose their class colors, they likewise awoke to the fact that they should have some way of distinguishing themselves from their under-classmen, and took, as colors, red and white, so striking a combination that it took the solid Freshman some time to decide which were really Senior colors. Owing to the preference shown to the high dignitaries, who call themselves Seniors, their pennant has held second place, nevertheless, they are eagerly looking forward to the vear 1911, when they will be the Seniors of the Quincy Hioji School. Six of the sixteen Juniors take German, and all of these bid fair to become prominent linguists, but the boys, with the exception of two, thought that if one tongue was enough for a woman surely it was for a man. It is impossible to say too much in their praise as a class; as individual members, it being equally hard, I shall not endeavor to eulogize, but merely name the various members of the class. The class president, Fern Moore, has passed the greater part of her life, as have a majority of her class, on the farm. Fern is ever steady and looks straight ahead as she continues to do each day’s task as it doth appear. “She is a quiet maiden and studious withal.” Juniors os a ® S D o 6 Q o3 D T) • £ ' S ' S £ . ro r c5 iao oe ' s- 2 Sh O •r a it! 1 O g ao ® - .2?

Arnet is blessed with a charming personality and ready wit, which, when occasion offers, he dis¬ plays with great ability. “Genius marks the lofty brow o’er which his curls pro¬ fusely fall.” The member of their band who cares for the finances, Floyd Knapp, was born in Algansee. Although burdened with tasks innumerable, Floyd is never heard to complain, but meets the situation with a slow and dignified smile. “Already yet Dutch can he speak, as naturally as pigs can squeak.” The class secretary, Arlene Campbell, has always been a very studious pupil; she diligently plods the pathway to fame, but when she plays basket ball she doesn’t plod—she flies. “She is so very studious and strictly mindeth every rule.” Clifford Ford, like all the rest, is not without a fault. He does like to laugh, (especially in Literature class.) “There he is again deep in his books.” But it’s not Geometry, only the Youth’s Companion. Clarence Amsden appears as a lover of the beautiful. Ask Clarence what his favorite flower is and I am sure he will say “Pansy.” Clarence thinks “a conver¬ sation across the table with a pretty girl is better than ten years of books.” Grace Marshall fervently endeavors to do each task as it should be done. No¬ thing short of perfection pleases Grace. “The grace which makes every other Grace amiable.” I am quite safe, I think, in saying that we all know Glenn Loomis. Doubtless Glenn will make you a call introducing his latest novelty with “a face with glad¬ ness overspread.” But in his case, the gladness overspreads his head. “It is never wise to come too close to the thing you desire to see.“ Dewitt Kanouse believes this to be true, and also, that “little attention never gives large results.” As Dewitt always practices what he preaches, he takes his time and looks for large results. However, he can wash windows to the Queen’s taste. Ivan Walbridge is of a very practical turn of mind. His chief delight is in the study of science. He meets every problem (especially crabs) in its own atmos¬ phere and deals with it in its own special illumination. Ivan is also a great favorite with the ladies. Oh, Ivan, look out, for “It is a terrible thing to be a lion among the ladies.” Waive Dobson is a very determined little girl. “If she will, she will, you may depend on ' t. If she won‘t, she won ' t, so there ' s an end on ' t. " She ' s very fond of quoting Burns and always excuses boy ' s misdemeanors with “For a ' that, and a ' that, a man ' s a man for a ' that. " Something seems to weigh heavily on Vera Logan ' s mind. As Vera spends so much time in seeking opinions, we have decided that the question Vera is trying to settle is whether congress has been trying to do its duty by the country or to do the country by its duty. Her motto is “I am in earnest, I will not equivocate, I will not excuse, I will not retreat a single inch, and I will be heard. " Books and schools will take you far, but practical experience at the bottom of the ladder must give you by far the most important knowledge. Claude Conrad be¬ lieves the preceding statement is true. Claude thinks “Go slow, but get there. " Klfreda Cleveland ' s attitude suggests, “men may come and men may go, but I go on forever. " And yet, just the other day she was delving in a cook book seek¬ ing a receipt for making bread, which causes us to wonder. The most original member of the class is Willie Sebring. He regards with scientific attention any object he encounters, either investigating botanically the flowers and shrubs that border his pathway or rapping with a geologist’s hammer the rocks among which those flowers nestle and blossom. He even tries to read the history of the globe from the mountains, and with all the rest, “His pencil was striking, resistless and grand.” Thus endeth the uneventful history of their class, but we find that the early life of many a man, famous in his later years, has been void of anything unusual. So we know this fact places no limit to the achievemens of the various members of the Juniors in the future. ASSEMBLY ROOM . . . Farewell Address . . . Gladys Ilowald To the Board Students of this greeting. of Education, to the Teachers school and to my Classmates who have been our guides, to the , it is my privilege to give a last Gentlemen of the Hoard of Education: We thank you for your care and for the interest you have taken in the welfare o lose who have come here to school each year. We will ever remember that to iJ ' n T T t U m T " ' e ° " ' e Pri ' ileses we ha ' e enjoyed. May ton e’ver he able to look w.th feehngs of satisfaction upon all your efforts for the .advance ment of those who are enrolled upon the register of the school, and especially unon the class which is now about to leave. especially upon Teachers: The time lias come for us to take leave of you, and we cannot re- frain from expressing the deep sense of obligation which rests upon us. We have spent four important years of our lives under your care, and have received the train¬ ing which forms a large part of the equipment for life; and we appreciate, in some measure at least, how much we owe to your faithfulness. We tremble as we leave you, for here we have relied upon your wisdom and guidance, and you have been willing to bestow it. Now we must think for ourselves and be ever dependent upon our own knowledge. And now, in the name of my class, whose representative I am proud to be, I bid you farewell, with the hope that your memory of us may be as pleasant as ours shall always be of you. Good Bye. Pupils of the Under-graduating Classes: Today we leave you, and we leave the old School in your care. You are to walk those halls and climb those stairs when we have wandered away. You will still make the rooms ring with the cheers in which our voices have so often joined. You are to have many funny happenings and quaint experiences in class rooms such as we have had, and these make us the more interested in you. We do not expect to be long remembered by you. Our places will be taken. But we are glad that we leave in our places strong-hearted boys and girls who love their school and will stand up stoutly for her when we are gone; glad that we leave pupils who will appreciate the work of these, our much beloved teachers. In the next two or three years, as one and another of us may come back to visit the school, it will be cheering to find some familiar faces. And now, schoolmates, the class of this year will soon separate from you, never again to be united in the sehoolrom ; may prosperity and happiness attend you all. Good Bye. Classmates: To you the final words of farewell must be said. We knew this parting must come, but we tried to put it from us and think of it as next year, next term or weeks away. We weren’t ready to have it come so soon. We have had the same routine each day, so that we had almost forgotten that there could be a change, that it did not go on this way forever. But now we have reached a new phase in life where each one must stand for himself. The events of our Com¬ mencement day and of the past school days are to be remembered with pleasure, perhaps with pride when we have passed far down into the vale of years. As the aged of today rehearse the scenes of their youth, so shall we revive the memories of our school days. Then, little incidents, which seem now hardly worth the telling, will possess a deeper interest. Our Senior year with its trials and its triumphs, will be an epoch in the career of some of us, as a year worth remembering by all of us. We cannot take leave of those familiar walls and sunder the pleasant associations which have bound us together here without acknowledging the debt of gratitude we owe to our school. We have too little experience with the duties and responsibil¬ ities of active life fully to understand and appreciate the value of the intellectual and moral training we have received in this place, but we know that we are the wiser and the better now for it. To many of us the education we have obtained here will be our only capital in beginning life, and, whatever wealth and honor we may hereafter win in the world will be largely due to our school. I v et us then re¬ member it with affection and gratitude. We shall ever feel a noble pride in those who have so wisely and generously placed the means of education within reach of all. And now, with what wish may we express the friendship and interest we feel for each other? I can wish nothing happier than that, through our lives, in sun¬ shine and sorrow, there may remain with us the consciousness of duty well done. In the hope of such a future, and with many pleasant memories of our good times, “ A uf 11 ' ied crsch n ’ ’ .

The same officers were reelected at the beginning of the second year. Some decided to take another course, and two deaths occurred during the year 1909, so the class is now composed of twenty-one members—seven boys and fourteen girls. They chose a beautiful combination of orange and brown for their class pen¬ nant which helps to decorate the walls of the assembly room. The class spirit has been running high throughout the year. During the winter they took a few enjoyable sleigh rides, at one time stopping for a few hours at the home of Allie Braun, where they were delightfully entertained. As there is a poet among the members of the class, they have many class and song yells. The following selections are some of their favorites: Tune of " You ' ve Got Me Going Kui.

The Sophomore basket ball girls are the champion players of Quincy high school. This spirit is greatly appreciated as athletics are considered an important factor in the work of all schools. Ode to class of 1912: “The Sophomores have been with us these two years, And are each day growing smarter; They would have finished if they could Before we Seniors had a starter. “We hope they’ll continue to grow wiser, And help this nation all they can, Then when their short, simple lives are o’er, It will be said, ‘Heap Big Man.’ ’’ ••o IIislorv of the Class of MO Hoy S. Baker S a member of the Class of 1910, I believe it is my duty to do my share of the class work, and that the members may be correctly chronicled in song and story, I submit the following history. 1 shall first relate events which concern them as a whole: “When the class entered the high school in the year 1905, it had a membership of about forty, but when the treadmill of four years of high school work had ground out the material, we found at the beein- onl about one-third of the original number. Owing partly to its make-up and partly to the fact that it was never organized into a class till late in its Sophomore year, the Class of 1910 has not shown much class spirit. Out of the thirteen members over half are students who entered the Freshman class from rural schools. The individuals have a history made up of events that seemed but hiding matters, but which hold deep places in memory. A very peaceable person is Edward Lampman. Ed. was born on a farm about three miles north of Quincy in 1892. He began his education in his fifth year at a little district schoolhouse near his home. Here he toiled eight years, after which he entered Quincy High School to be a member of the Class for 1910. Four years of high school work have fitted him for something better. These last four years have ieen spent m hard work, for notwithstanding tile fact that he has been detained at lome to help with the farm work during the spring terms, by dint of hard work and special examinations lie lias mastered the full four years course and ranks hio-h ill lus standings. He particularly distinguished himself in the study of synonyms Hd. always takes advantage, when spare moments come, to enjoy them. He likes the sport of spearing suckers in the creek near his home, and ' a reference to this subject serves to remind his friends of pleasant occasions. I Will next take up the history of another member of the class, who though sina cs in statme, is greatest ill knowledge. She is commonly called “Shorty " ” S e was born 1,1 Columbus, O., in 1891, and began her education in a imra. district entered O H S in 1905 d“ ' 7 ’ 3 m ° re danced course, ' - -ic„ 4fo ei:t wi;;;t rt t 1 r “Shorty” JwaylTad ' a IMna “ Valedic ° ri »- distinguishing herself inEth bask bllS k " “ » »» City in 1 1892 ‘ " chwlt 0 ” | ‘° f ™ in the “Windy grade in the Quincy school in 1903.

She was born on a farm southeast of Quincy in the year 1891, and after spending fifteen years of her life among the clover blossoms and attending school in the Mndge dis- tiiet, she entered O. H. S. in 1905. Her high school work has met with approval from the teachers. Her kindly ways and gentle manners have won her many friends. The same year and the same locality saw the birth of another person who was to lead much the same kind of a life as that of Blanche. This person was given the name of Nora, to which is appended the name of Hall. During her high school course, Nora has conquered all problems with a ready mind, and has mastered them so completely that next year she will be teaching others what she knows. She has shown a great liking for books, which, perhaps, helps to account for the lack of in¬ cidents which would make her past life known to a larger circle of people. The history that embraces the life of Rae Pease would fill volumes, but as it would be an injustice to devote more space to his history than that of the other members, I can only tell the most important events of his life. Rae was born in 1892 in this place, and has, during his eighteen years of life, developed a knowledge peculiar to himself. In his younger years it was foreseen that he would acquire that knowledge, for he was known to ask questions impossible for the venerable Mrs. Sweeney to answer. The bane of his life is in having to put commas and “things” in his compositions. This is the only kind of work that he cannot turn off in a hurry. He has taken active part in events too numerous to mention. His debat¬ ing on the contrary side of an argument won him popularity in his class. He enjoyed himself best when at foot ball, his idea of baseball being “too soft a game.” The history of Ada Brownell is limited to territory within sight of the school- house. She was born in the year 1892. She entered school in her fifth year of life and showed from the beginning that she would graduate with honors. During the last two years she has distinguished herself as an auto driver. During her high school course she has won many friends, both in and out of town. It is my hope that she may have as good success in the future, but as we have a prophet it is not my duty to speak of that. Another history that may be summed up in a few words is that of Viva Crad¬ dock. She was born on a farm north of x ' kllen in the year 1892. In that localitv she spent her entire life until she entered O. H. S in 1905. Her school record has been excellent, nearly equaling that of Clela Hemry, for Viva holds second place, representing us as class Salutatorian. The life of Mildred Dobson embraces a few events worthy of notice. She was born in 1891 on a farm north of Quincy. She at first went to a district school but later entered a lower grade in the Quincy school. In a short time she returned to the country and continued her work in the district school. She entered the Q. H. S. in 1905 and has been one of the stickers that make up the class of 1910. She has shown a good record in her school work, but her deportment has been very bad. Another member who has shown a low mark in deportment is Hazel Forte. She was born in 1891 in Allen township. Her school life until she entered 0. H. S. was broken up. The Fort(e) has been engaged in many battles, her scraps taking place with the Main(e). She has blown up the Maiu(e) many times, only to be (Continued After Freshman Article.)

Mildred Dobson The Freshman class was organized January 20, 1910, and elected the following offieeis. President, Cecile Corless; ice President, Joseph Houck; Secretary, Em¬ ma Young; Treasurer, Carleton McKenzie. Their colors are blue and yellow. 1 he class had a very enjoyable sleighride last January to the pleasant home of Joseph Houck. When about three miles south of the village, in the hope of hurry¬ ing Brenneman’s mules along the homeward way, somewhere near two o’clock in the morning, Mr. Wilson framed the class yell for them. So far, their history has been rather short, but we’ll try to remedy this defect by presenting the class to you four years later at their Commencement exercises on June 18, 1913. Slowly and sadly to the funereal strains of “I Wonder Who’s Kissing Her Now?” rises a beautiful blue and gold curtain and discloses to our startled vision the faces of the Class of 1913. No sooner are our eyes accustomed to the brilliant spectacle than our ears are greeted by the inspiring words: ‘ ‘ Zip pity zoo , zippity zoo , Freshmen! Freshmen! Yellow and Flue. Be-bo-be-bo-be-bo-bean , Q. H. S. in the year of Thirteen .” The first to appear on the programme is Harold Spigelinyre, who renders that old but touching solo, ‘‘The Girl I Left Behind Me.” Next, Joseph Hoick, in his usual solemn manner, recites the following selection, entitled “Smiles”: “Smile a smite when yon smile. Another smile , and soon there is miles And miles ot smiles , and life is worth while , If yon but smile. " We next listen to Georgiette Wheeler reciting in tones which could be heard at a great distance, “Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight.” Leona Mohr then demon¬ strates a practical lesson in domestic science, using a sand table for the purpose. Bessie Hewitt and Gertrude Winter then render in their most pleasing manner the duet, “Fiddle and I.” Carleton McKenzie reads some very good advice to ehaf- feurs to chew gum, that they may quickly and easily mend punctured auto tires. Irene Short is called upon to illustrate the most improved method of climbing a smooth basket ball standard to reach the ball. Emma Young and Cecile Corless pose in basket ball suits—they have become so used to it lately that they do it un¬ consciously. Robert Dornbrock next appears upon the stage, reciting several vol¬ umes of his original poetry. The audience is then awakened by the strains of mar¬ tial music from the orchestra of eight pieces all manipulated by Earl Stafford. Af¬ ter hearing such thrilling music, the audience is prepared for the essay by Howard Bowerman, entitled “Silence is the Soil in which Thought Grows.” Marion Boley then gives an illustration of physical culture, called the“Irish Lilt.” Through all this, Ewing Hettinger’s sleepy voice is heard mumbling, amo, amas, amat, ama- mus, amatis, amant. Several attempts are made to wake him up, but with no suc¬ cess, and we still hear amabam, amabas, amabat, amabamus, amabatis, amabant. As a last resort the spotlight is turned on him, and he wakes, muttering, “Ettu Brute! ” The last number on the programme is a chariot race, conducted by Charles Dunphy. The horses are large and beautiful and are well trained to perform their parts. The racing is fast and furious, and just at the crucial moment the stage floor gives way, taking with it horses, chariots, and lastly, the illustrious class of 1913. History of the Class of MO (Continued) captured by him when he came down. Other events of her life she says are too unimportant to mention, so I will leave the rest of the war to our prophet. On a farm northwest of Allen was born in 1892 a little brown eyed girl. She was named Florence and began her school life in Quincy in 1897. She has been one of the three to take the twelve years of grinding in this sehoolhouse. She has de eloped a beautiful voice, and in or out of school it can be heard humming some familiar tune. Owing to sickness during the last two years she has been unable to be punctual in school, but her perseverance in her work has given her a good record, file name of this brown eyed damsel at present is Florence Kinyon. The history of Gladys Howald is like that of Ray Pease. It would take vol- umns to tell in detail the events of her life. Gladys was born in 1891 on a farm southeast of this village. She began her education in her fifth year, attending school in the Mudge district. During the next eight years she led the life of a farmer s daughter, studying and farming both in summer and winter, and the country breezes gave her vigor for the tasks that she has had to meet since she en¬ tered the Q. H. S. She joined the Freshman class in 1905 and kept the pace set for the graduates of 1910. Among the accomplishments which Gladys has devel¬ oped is a decided talent for artistic pen sketching. The uneventful life of the class historian began in Fairfield, O., in the year 1891. Soon after his birth his parents moved to a farm six miles south of Quincy. In 1901 they moved to Quincy, when he began his studies in the Quincy school by entering the third grade. His career in school has not been that of a genius, but ns record shows a mark to indicate ploughing thru to the end. He always stood at t le lead of his class m deportment. Although he was no great athlete, he enjoyed akmg part m the athletics of the school and many incidents connected with them will remain m his memory. He has the honor of having the highest average in deportment of any member of the class of 1910. Of iTT’ n ‘T. fo ' lrteenth da ' of J " lle the high school life of the class ot 1010.

As for • • • • • • • • Fate and Fortune Blanche Marshall J J rummon( • e.s, sir, stocks have fallen way below par.” This was the message that William Drummond received as he sat at his desk ’ and without h earing any more he dropped the receiver and fell back into his chair exclaiming, “Ruined! I am ruined! Oh, what will my family do?” He sat there for some time without fully realizing what was going on about him. He had waited in his office the greater part of the forenoon almost trembling lest he would receive the message telling him of his failure, and it had come at last. At noon, when he went home, he looked as if fully ten years had been added to lus age, for Mr. Drummond was now stooped and his face had a worn and haggard look. As he approached his home his wife did not recognize him at first, but with a cry of horror she ran to meet him to learn the cause of his changed appearance, and upon learning it, only replied, “Don’t worry, William, it may come out all right, and together they walked into the house to talk the matter over. It was then that he told her he had been investing their money but had lost, and with the hope of recovering part of it had mortgaged their mansion and made another investment, but only to meet with another disappointment. That e ening the cry of the newsboys could be heard all over the city of New York telling of the Drummond failure. It is needless to say that the people of that city were very much surprised to hear of it, for the Drummond family were well known throughout the city, being of high social standing. As Mr. Drummond entered his wife’s boudoir he exclaimed, “Alice, have you forgotten that our son Richard is to come home tonight to attend the Williamson ball with Margaret? ’ ’ The occasion of this being to announce the engagement of their son Richard to Margaret Hull, an heiress. The shocking news of the day had caused Mrs. Drummond to forget the great event of the evening. On the other hand, as Richard Drummond was returning home from colleo-e and was nearing his journey’s end he was radiant with joy to think that he was soon to be with his parents and fiancee, little dreaming of the great calamity that had befallen them and that his dreams were to remain as dreams. But when he alio-lited from the train his attention was drawn to the call of the newsboys, who were crying, “Paper? All about the Drummond failure! Paper, Mr? Paper?” As he started to board a car, he thought, “can it be that my father has failed?” He immedi¬ ately purchased a paper and to his surprise he found it was all too true. Richard hastened home and the story was told him, but he withstood the shock bravelv. He at once thought of Margaret and without delay went to her home, but as she had learned of their misfortune, Richard was relieved partly of the great burden that was weighing upon his mind. For, as he was now poor, it was entirely out of the question to think of marrying Margaret. So Richard told her of his plans and they parted, thinking it would probably be the last that the y would see each other. The following week the Drummond mansion and furnishings were sold at auc¬ tion. This was the hardest of all for them to endure; for to see the things they had treasured sold under these circumstances seemed unbearable. They were now • Kiglitli Grade g V $ G O u 0 ) Q 23 S3 03 ffl 08 ® S3 ® J T3 2 ® o G G n O ® W G eg C G3 O £ f £ £ ® £ JS X O 1- i-J o -a S ° 5 s • ® O _3 OS I G G u •G G ® £ V c 35 J £ J3 ■S o CQ t ' j (j s fl i o » igth 03 3 W I CC I f i o OS O a 03 . •c Ph c forced to take up their abode in a small cottage with scanty furnishings in the out¬ skirts of the city. As Richard was in reality penniless it was an impossibility for him to return to college and face his classmates in this position. Instead he decided to go west to earn a living. Upon his arrival in one of the western states he immediately found work in a mine. As there was such a radical change in his position it seemed at first as if he could not endure it, but he was determined. Richard proved himself to be such a worthy and brilliant gentleman that he was promoted many times, each promotion bringing an increase in salary. As the men with whom he worked in the mine were not very companionable, he would often go for a stroll among the mountains. One day while on one of his jaunts he found a little cottage sequestered in among the mountains. Upon inves- tigating he found that an old man lived there alone. They made friends and from then on Richard spent the greater part of his evenings with this new acquaintance. One evening after Richard had left the cottage the old man sat thinking and unconsciously talking to himself, saying, “I wonder who he really is? Richard, yes that was the name, and he is a perfect picture.” The hour was late and he retired for the night, but it was spent in a restless manner, and before the break of dawn he was taken suddenly ill. 1 he next night when Richard came to make his evening call he was very much concerned upon finding that the old man was seriously sick. He found his condi¬ tion was such that he deemed it advisable to stay all night with him. Richard did all in his power for him, but in the night he grew decidedly worse, and as he felt that his time for this world was limited he told Richard that he had a secret that he wished to tell him before his death. He tried several times during- the night to tell him, but each time became unconscious and when he was revived the secret seemed to be forgotten. After a while the old man seemed brighter and began his story by saying: “Richard, I know it will be a great shock to you to hear what I have to say to you, but it has been upon my mind for some time and the time has now come when 1 feel that I must—tell—you.” Without finishing his speech he again became unconscious. Richard hastened and gave him a stimulant and after a time he revived enough to continue his story. “Richard, you are my nephew.” “Nephew?” exclaimed Richard, “how can it be?” “Your father is my brother and fifty years ago he and I had a dreadful quarrel, and we parted vowing never to see each other again; I came west and have lived the life of a hermit. Oh! it was dreadful! In the cupboard you will find my will and east of the cottage, under that oak tree, you will find my money.” His voice began to grow fainter and with the words, “I ask your father’s forgiveness, for I was to blame,” he fell over dead. It was a great shock to Richard to learn the facts of this secret. The next day he went to the oak tree as his uncle had told him and found the vast sum of money. Richard lost no time before starting for the east to see his parents, from whom he had not heard in three years, for he was far from any communication. After a long journey he finally arrived at the parental home, but he found that a great change had taken place in their personal appearance. He related the story of his adventures in the West and the fortune he had obtained. They were very much pleased with his good luck, but yet they felt sad when they thought of their brother. Before the end of the week the business transaction was closed which made Richard Drummond the owner of the once Drummond mansion. The engagement between Richard and Margaret was announced, the wedding soon followed, and now we see both families nicely situated in their new, and yet old home. . . . . History of Quincy . . . .

Thru the site of the village passed an old Indian trail, which had been there from tune immemorial, a highway for the red men as they passed from the Canadas and the East around Lake Michigan to the great buffalo hunting grounds of the West, and for the tribes of the far West as they brought their furs to the markets of the East. . Long before Father Marquette and his Jesuit co-laborers had established their missions in the North, or ever the eye of the white man had o- aze d upon the beauties of the new continent, the great highway had been beaten hard by t le foot of the red man as he passed to and fro with his scantv merchandise or tro¬ phies of the war and chase. This trail served the white man as an inroad into the wilderness, finally becoming the main road from Detroit to Chicago. Beo-inning with the year 1827, emmigrants began to pour over it, making settlements along its course. Some came to seek their fortune, but most came to find homes, willing to endure all hardships and privations which accompanv the life of the pioneer In the year 1830 Horris Wilson, father of our venerable townsman, Horris ' Wil¬ son, Jr., made the purchase of 320 acres, located in sections 12, 13 and 14 He put up a small hut on the northeast corner of section 14, and to him belongs the honor o purchasing the first land, building the first house, plowing the first furrow sowing the first oats and keeping the first tavern in Quincy township. Mr Wilson lived but a sho rt time to enjoy the fruits of his pioneer labor, and upon h ' is death Ellis Russell kept the tavern for Mrs. Wilson. His son, Horris Wilson Jr who now lives on East Chicago street with his daughter, Mrs. Field, is one of’the Je settlers who survives. He came with his parents when he was two and a half years and since that time has resided in Quincy. In talking with Mr Wilson 1 I learned some interesting facts about the early settlements As j a- ' V V 1 only playmates, he told many stories concernino- them tj ndlans were his two lakes existed near the Rans. Wi b, r prop tv This a 7 when Of the road at that point. He told of tl Es fishing on ' lh se Tate was an Indian trader between Coldwater and Quincy whoAold the red n i tint h fist weighed just a pound, so they would put their furs on one side of the scales while he would press his fist on the other side, thus acquiring any amount of furs for the price of one pound. Mr. Wilson told many other stories concerning the injustice with which the red man was treated. When he was twelve years of age he was grieved to see them driven away from the country. He tells of a banquet that was given at Baw Beese Lake to which all the chiefs and their tribes were invited. While the Indians were feasting they were surrounded by the State militia and taken prisoners. The tribes were soon after escorted by the militia beyond the Mississippi Rivei, where they were left to find new homes. During the summei of 33 Mr. John Cornish put up a log cabin in which he might live until he could build a frame house. This cabin stood near where Mr. G. W. Jones now lives, which was formerly the Havens Wilbur property. Into this he moved his family, consisting of his wife and seven children. Here in this cabin Mr. John Barns, a brother of Mrs. Cornish, died. Relatives from Allen came to the funeral. There, with the fir st dead in Quincy, sat the relatives of the deceased. CHICAGO ST. BUSINESS SECTION They sang a hymn and read a verse of scripture, after which Mr. Iehabod Burdick offered prayer. Then the rude coffin was placed in a wagon, and seventy-seven years ago the first funeral procession in Quincy moved slowly down the Chicago road to Allen for burial. In the autumn of the same year, in this cabin, was born a baby boy. He was named Allen Cornish. In the spring of 1834 Mr. Cornish erected a frame house on the site where the Quincy House now stands. As soon as it was completed he moved in and opened a tavern. On account of its central location, the first township meeting was held in this tavern. This building, with all its contents, was burned in 1843, the first fire in Quincy. If time and space would permit it would be interesting to trace the early history in detail, but such would require a volume in itself. Therefore I will mention only the most important events in Quincy’s history. By the year 1836 the population had increased so that it was thought necessarv to form another township. An act by the Legislature (for in the previous October we had elected a Legislature and a Governor, though we were not admitted into the l nion as a State until ’37), approved March 23, 1836, erected Quincy from Cold- water township. Quincy, by that act, included Algansee and California, which were not made separate townships until 1838. In the petition to the Legislature asking for the formation of a new township, the people suggested the name Springfield or Springville, but as another had already adopted that name, Mr. Hiram Alden, who was then a prominent citizen, suggested the name Quincy, which was adopted. Some have disputed as to whether Mr. Alden named the place after Quincy, Mass., his former home, or in honor of John Quincy Adams. In 1853 the old tavern on the site of the Quincy House, one or two stores, a postoffice and a few dwelling houses were all Quincy could claim in the direction of illage growth, but in the next few years a number of business and dwelling houses were erected. In 1853 the village was platted, the plat being signed by the owners SOLDIERS MONUMENT, LAKEVIEW CEMETERY by some of our present citizens. • • e lemembeied I wo years later, when it was estimated there were four , , Milage plot, the village was incorporated by tile eountv hr 1 A e °H 0,1 l ' ,e from that time there has been a steady growth.

By way of industry, Quincy can boast of a large cement plant, a creamery, a big cereal food and milling plant, cooperage shop, cement tile and brick works cement building block works and planing mill. These establishments have greatly helped in the growth and development of onr village. Quincy, at the present, boasts almost 2000 live, progressive inhabitants who enjoy the privileges of a thriving municipal electric light, water works and sewage system, and who take pride in their beautiful streets and homes. There are over 50 business firms, 7 church organizations and a well patronized Ladies’ Library As¬ sociation, which will soon occupy the handsome Township Library buidiim now under course of construction on Main street. The citizens also take great pride in their beautiful burial plot, Lakeview Cemetery. Its well kept appearance the vear round, together with its location, near Marble Lake, combine in making a most fit¬ ting resting place for the silent dead.

And we must not forget the pretty chain of lakes which lie so near to our vil¬ lage and add greatly to its beauty. During the past few years, the resorts at Cedar Joint and Pleasant Ridge have grown considerably. Thus we have briefly traced Quincy’s growth from the days of primeval forests to the present, and we are proud to speak of Quincy as one of the prettiest of southern Michigan towns. Although the men and women who blazed the first trails in the pioneer days, who conquered the stubborn forests, have passed on to the more beautiful land where hardships are unknown, the results of their labor still remain as a monument to their names. We, their children, while not having the destinetion which belong to first settlers, have added our efforts towards continuing the tasks which they began. In the march of progress made by the sister towns of Southern Michigan we feel that Quincy has kept the pace. May her citizens of tomorrow have the same pride, patriotism and devotion as characterizes her present sons and daughters. “ Toil swings the axe the forest bow , 1 he fields break out in radiant bloom; Rich harvests smile behind the plow , And cities cluster around the loom.

Nine members comprised the association, but the small number was due to the fact that there were no graduating classes from 76 to ’80. Perhaps it will be of interest to many to know to whom we are indebted for organizing this body. The class of 76 comprised A. V. R. Pond, now connected with the pension department at Detroit; W. C. Marsh, practicing physician at Albion, Mich.; and R. Upton Clay, a railroad auditor at Sacramento, Cal. The class of ’80—Carrie Clark-Pifer, of Deer Trail, Colo.; Cora Clizbe-Newberry, °f Quincy; Livonia Rogers-Bowerman, of Quincy; May Wilson Field, of Quincy; May Collins, of Chicago; Adda Culver-Bishop, of Litchfield. Ihe first meeting was given for the class of ’82 on the schoolhouse grounds and attendance was not limited to high school graduates but was free to the entire village. The following program was given in the high school room: Demonstra- T T T T ' V .» tions given. L. H.

The year that the high school was also excluded we have been unable to learn. Meetings continued to be held at the schoolhouse till 1894, when the members were enter¬ tained by Dr. J. M. Blackman at his home on East Chicago street. For the fol¬ lowing ten years private homes were made “seats of warfare,” and in 1905 and ’06 Castle Hall made a charming place for entertainment. For the past three years meetings have been held in Babcock’s opera house. Outside of the annual meetings very little has been done by the alumni till April 1, 1910, when the play “Germelshausen” was given, the German story being translated and dramatized by Miss Ethyl Fox, to whom the alumni is deeply indebted. The total number enrolled in the alumni at present is two hundred and forty- six, but the members are scattered everywhere from the Atlantic to the Pacific. A great many of the graduates, of whom Quincy may well be proud, have gone to higher institutions, and in many cases they have brought honor to our school. Even tho our school days are over, it is always a pleasure to see the high school students grasp new ideas and advance year after year. The issuing of an annual is altogether new to Quincy, altho successfully tried in many other places. The alumni is sure to be much benefitted by it, for it will bring the members in closer touch and old acquaintances and thoughts of former happy days be recalled.

Hh first religious services held under the auspices of the Methodist society were i n which year a class of about seven members was organized. The Quincy society, from its organization up to 1854, had probably an ecclesiastical 1 elation to the Litchfield and Coldwater circuits, from which it received its ministerial supply. In the wai 1854 Quincy appeared in the conference minutes as an independent cliitge. At this time the society built a wood edifice, with a seating capacity of 150 persons. It was dedicated January 1, 1855, by Rev. J. K. Gillett, Presiding Elder of Coldwater district. During the pastorate of Rev. J. N. Dayton the church was rebuilt and at this time the bell which is still in use was purchased. In 1892 the church was lepaired and the chaped was dedicated to the Epworth League. During the pastorate of Revs. E. A. Armstrong, W. H. Parsons, G. S. Robinson and G. A. Buell the question of a new church was very strongly talked of. Rev. Buell, last but not least, succeeded in obtaining a large pledge for this purpose, and he, assisted by M. A. Griswold, laid the plans for it. During the summer of 1908 the foundation of the church was laid. The following fall our present pastor, Rev. R. D. Freeman, was sent here. By the constant toil and effort of the workmen a new and comfortable church of striking appearance was completed. The dedica¬ tion of the church was held on Sunday, April 4, 1909, the dedicatory sermon being given by Dr. Elliott, of Chicago. 1 he church being the largest in the village has a good attendance at all the services. Although the records show great changes from deaths and removals, yet it has has had from the first a healthy and steady growth, and now has a membership of 180. Let us wish for a greater interest and membership of this organization and that the history of the church will continue to be as good as it has been in the past. Baptist Church. The history of this church goes back to the year 1846, when about twenty members met in the schoolhouse of Hog Creek district and resolved to organize a society to be called the Quincy Baptist Church. They had requested ministers and delegates of the Coldwater, Litchfield, Allen, Reading and Algansee churches to meet with them in council. The society was duly organized and admitted to the Hillsdale association the same year and enjoyed a steady growth from that time until September, 1855, when it numbered 127 members. Forty members were then dismissed to form the Second Baptist Church at Algansee. A steady decrease in members then took place and in June, 1866, there was a membership of only 64. Since that time there has been a gradual increase. Soon after their organization the place of holding meetings was changed to the schoolhouse in Quincy village, and finally the meetings were held in the village schoolhouse and Mudge schoolhouse alternately. In 1854 the present church edi- fice was commenced and completed in the same year. It was then very plain and almost wholly without furniture. In 1870 the house was enlaiged by the addition of the vestibule and chapel, and in 1877 the pews were taken out and the seats now in use were substituted. Rev. A. Town was the first minister of this organization, remaining one year, and was succeeded by Rev. Mack. The several pastors of the church ha e covered about forty-six years, leaving some six years without pastoral service, during part of which time temporary supplies have been enjoyed. The longest pastorate was five years by Rev. T. Burroughs. Rev. H. D. Allen, their present pastor, as well as former pastor, succeeded Rev. Paul J. Johns, who resigned in April. The following, taken from the church records, seems to express the animating spirit of the society in general: 44 For the visible results of the labors wrought, let us return heartfelt thanks to our God, to whom all honor belongs, and let us pray that the blessings and successes of the past and the possibilities of the future may lead us to a fuller consecration to the work of our Lord, so that the years to come may be crowned with far richer blessings and more abundant success in the work of saving souls than have the years which are passed.” Presbyterian Church. February 27, 1857, the friends of the Presbyterian society met to take into consideration the practicability of organizing a church to be called the First Presby¬ terian church of Quincy. After due deliberation and a full expression of the desire of those present to be organized, the articles of faith were read and accepted, the Use G. B. H.

In 1861 Rev. Charles Adams became pastor and was succeeded by Rev. A. Schofield. For some time the want of a church was severely felt, but with a membership o on y irty-seven, the way did not seem clear to procure one. Presently, how¬ ever, their numbers increased to one hundred and twenty-five, and then, as a first effort toward a church of their o wn, they advised the Methodist society to sell them their old house and build a better one. Since this advice was not accepted, the election of a cheap building, made of rough boards, finished up in the cheapest style possible, was talked of. This not being satisfactory, a subscription paper was started and m a short time a large amount was raised and the present edifice was erected in 1869 and dedicated December 5th of the same year. During the pastor¬ ate of Rev. D. J. Mitterling, in 1899, extensive repairs were made, a belfry erected and the church was rededicated January 28, 1900. Through the efforts of Mr.’ Mitterling and those of his predecessors and success, among whom Rev F M Coddington deserves special mention, the society is in a prosperous condition and during the past four years has been ably presided over by Rev. J. C. McKee. Kpiscopal Church. This society was first organized about 1853, when the rector of St. Mark’s church of Coldwater began preaching here, his successors having continued the ministrations to the present time. Though no regularly organized society existed for several years, their services were held in the Baptist church every two weeks, the first minister being Dr. Shetky. In 1880 the present church was erected on the corner of Jefferson and Fulton streets. About fifteen years after the church was built its doors were closed owing to lack of membership and interest of Coldwater ministers. However, about a year ago the people, being anxious to have the church reopened and to attend their own services again, set earnestly at work to repair the building and the people now gather every other Sunday afternoon to hear the words of the gospel spoken by Rev. Murray of Coldwater. Seventh Day Adventists. During the summer of 1873 Rev. I. D. Van Horn and H. M. Kenyon visited this locality, erected a large tent, and by their meetings created an intense religious feeling among many people. As a result this society was formed October 24, 1874, with a membership of about twenty-five. Theodore Canright was their first elder. In 1874 the brick church, which stands on East Jefferson street at the present time, was erected, and the dedicatory sermon was preached by Elder J. H. Waggoner. The membership has increased quite largely since the organization. The church, as a whole, has the name of being very much interested in home and foreign mis¬ sions. Since 1906 they have raised about $3,100 for missions. The church sup¬ ports no minister and thus is able to give more money for missions, etc. They have no socials or amusement of any kind whereby to raise money, but depend entirely upon their tithes and freewill offerings. Indeed, they are to be given due credit for their independent spirit of self-support and the success they have met with through their persistent faith and never failing courage. • • • • • • .

The old man said that to repay my kindness he would show me some- thing that I never believed to have existed outside of dreams. I was very skeptical at tins and laughed at him. Undoing his pack, he took from it a parcel carefully wrapped in paper; unwrapping the parcel he took from it what appeared to me to be an ordinary mirror. “This is a magic mirror I brought from India. By ooking into tins mirror and concentrating your mind on one person, you will be able to see something of the future of that person,” said my visitor. I did not be¬ lieve him, but thought I would take a look and find out. As you would naturally think, I wanted to find out what was in store for me so collecting all my mental abilities I thought hard of myself, and looking into the mirror I saw a figure that made my blood run cold. There stood a figure in a black robe. 1 thought I was destined for the ministry, but, on looking closer, I saw that 1 had become a college student. I next saw that I was to realize my greatest am¬ bition and become a foot ball star. As this was the highest pinnacle of my ambi¬ tion and time was precious, I thought that I would see what was in store for my classmates. The first name that came into my mind was that of my classmate, Clela Hemry, better known as Shorty.” I saw her the proud young’ teacher of a dis¬ trict school. Then as an Ypsilanti student, where she graduated with honors, making up in brain matter what she lacked in size. She then secured a position m a Ladies’ Athletic Club where she gave boxing lessons to woman suffrage teachers. She retired from this strenuous life when Cupid spoiled it with his bow and arrow, and then put her education to the use of keeping the house of a thriving young shoeman in order. Florence Kinyon next came into my mind. On thinking of Florence, I saw that she had become an astronomer. I saw that she had gained notoriety from dis¬ covering several new comets and from capturing one by putting salt on its tail. She became the happy bride of . a young pastor. I was sorry to see that her hus¬ band was carried away by death in a few short years. She spent the rest of her life in widowhood and became the founder of a home for homeless cats. My friend Edward Lampman next came into my mind. Alas, poor Edward, I knew him well. I saw Edward in the squared ring meeting all comers. After winning the world’s championship belt, he retired with one dollar, seven cents, two beer checks, a plugged nickle and a pant button. It was the simple life for Edward after that. The next scene that came to my view was the front of a popular vaudeville house in New York. A billboard announced that the Misses Howald and Marshall were billed for a week in this house giving first-class songs and dances. “Direct from the gay Paris stage—money back if not satisfied.’’ The scene shifted. I saw Blanche the happy wife of a rich western mine owner. I saw that Gladys did not have such good luck. She married an Italian, Count Nocoin, who left her after he had spent all of her money. My friend Mr. Baker next came into view. I saw him a student at the U. of M., then as captain of the Detroit Tigers, where he lead his team to victory and won a world’s championship. During his career he had several attacks of feminitis and skirtereno from which he never fully recovered. After ten years of strenuous life I saw that he became a Mormon elder and was beloved by all the sisters. When I thought of Hazel Forte, a very beautiful and noble picture was pre¬ sented to me. I saw that she was engaged in the grand work of rescuing the Main(e) from the cool guzzel waters. After success crowned her efforts in this noble work, she starred in that beautiful drama, “Little Bright Eyes, the Child Wife,’’ playing the part of “Bright Eyes.’’ She had the misfortune to tumble to a joke one day and sprained her voice, but she applied a mustard plaster to it and WE ARE HEADQUARTERS FOR The Remedies “A Remedy For Every 111” DrUgS!

While a missionary she had a romance. She and a dusky chief fell to spooning “By the Light of the Silvery Moon,” but, unfortu- na eh her lover was captured and went to complete the menu of a cannibal chief. She then returned to the “Good Old U. S. A” to become a lady trapeze performer. I lost sight of her after this. I saw that Ada Brownell had taken to the lecture platform. Her subjects were Why Lake Michigan is So Near the Shore” and “What Makes Water Wet.” After a brilliant career she became a woman suffrage teacher. Her friends tried to persuade her to leave this life and become an actress, but she would not till she had been jailed a few times. She then retired to lead the simple life. Mildred Dobson, Viva Craddock and Irene Buckley became known as the “Peer¬ less Trio, Champion Lady Bareback Riders,” with Ringling Bros, circus. Irene clung to her puffs all during her glorious career and after retiring from the ring she became a Woman’s Christian Temperance Union leader and achieved great success along this line. iva married a rich showman. Mildred married a New York mil¬ lionaire and went to live in Italy. Winnie Wheeler had no startling events in her future life. She became travel¬ ing saleswoman for an eastern dress goods concern. In the course of her travels she met her affinity and lived happily ever afterward. Well, said I to the old man, “If all that I have seen comes true, some of my classmates will be doing some remarkable stunts?” “The mirror never lies,” he answered, and picking up his kit, he left me to ponder over the revelations of the magic mirror.

Our teams during the past year have made the best showing of any m recent years. Most important of all, a new spirit of loyalty to and enthusiasm for the best high school standards has been kept foremost in the thought of those striving for athletic honors. By vote of the young men themselves early in the year it was decided that no one could enter into athletic events without first secur¬ ing a high grade of scholarship. This high standard has been faithfully lived up to during the year and has meant much for the development of a higher standard both in athletics and scholarship. It has given us several splendid teams which we have been proud to send out as representatives of our school. This determination to make scholarship and athletic prowess go hand in hand has won us many friends, both at home and with the other schools. In appreciation of the fine work of the various teams the school board recently had twenty lockers built in the basement for the use of those doing athletic work. More attention than ever before was paid to foot ball and base ball. The experience gained from the foot ball season should be of great help in rounding out a strong team the coming year. The honors in basket ball have gone to the young ladies, who have devoted considerable attention to this increasingly popular sport. Especially among the younger classes were fine teams developed. A series of class games among the girls was played, resulting in the championship being secured by the very speedy Sophomore team. The base hall season just closed was a successful one in every way. The games played at home were well attended and the people of Quincy showed an interest in the games which was deeply appreciated by the students. With the help of the busidess men fine new uniforms were secured, the team presenting a natty appearance on the field. It is to be hoped that next year more attention will be paid to track work, in which we can be proficient if we once discover our possibilities. With the athletic advance made this year we are reasonably sure in counting upon greater accomplishments for next gear. O O 9 © Foot Kail 9-000 The athletic season of 1909-10 has been one of the best that O. H. S. ias known for a number of years. We do not think all of onr success has been m t le fact that we have won more games than in the past, but we think our gieatest sue cess has been in bringing Quincy into closer relationship with othei schools. e hope that a friendly spirit of rivalry and good fellowship has sprung up between O. H. S. and other neighboring schools. When school opened in September a mass meeting of all the boys who wished to take an active part in athletics was held, and a rule was established that no boy was to play on any team if he did not carry three subjects and do passing work in all three. ' This rule was strictly observed all the year, and, as a result, athletics helped the studies instead of being a hindrance to them. _ } A foot ball team was organized and Lynn Main was elected captain. Farwell s field was used for the games. After three nights of practice, the team played the strong Coldw ater eleven and was badly defeated. But it was a good thing foi the team, as it showed their weak spots and brought out points for improvement. . Aftei this game, the services of Percy Dunphy, as coach, were secured, and under his aide instruction the team began to develop slowly but surely. Although defeated in the first game, the team gradually developed and played stronger at the latter pait of the season, as is shown by the schedule: O. H. S. 0 at Coldwater H. S. 76. Coldwater V. M.

SQUIER Q. H. S. Boys’ Team Amsden. Seabrinpr. Clizbe, Fillmore, Baker. Palmateer, Johnson. This team was chosen early in the year from among the eligible students of the school and was captained by Palmateer. They played fast, clean ball and have a fine record, having only lost two games during the season. • • © • Base Ball • • • • The base ball season of the Quincy High School for the past year has been the best for many years. The schedule of eight games was with high school teams, and the result was we broke even. Palmateer and Captain Baker have been pitch¬ ing consistent ball throughout the year. Johnson’s catching has been high class, while the rest of the infield, composed of Clizbe, Bowerman and Fillmore, have played good ball most of the time and have improved in their batting wonderfully. The outfield has done as good as could be expected considering the numerous changes that have been made, Sebring being the only one playing steadily. The girls of the High School have been very loyal in their support of the team, being in attendance at every game. Another source of encouragement was the aid given us by Dr. Campbell, Mr. Newberry and Adrian Yoder, for all of which we are very grateful, as they brought out many fine points which otherwise we might never have known. As a rule the business men showed little interest, except to give us occa¬ sional knocks as to our not winning many games . However, we wish to thank those who aided us by attending our home games and cheering us on to better plays and harder efforts. The lineup as we left it was as follows: Catcher, Harry John¬ son; pitcher, Chester Palmateer; first base, Leroy Clizbe; second base, Roy Baker; third base, Kenneth Bowerman; shortstop, Truesdell Fillmore; outfielders and subs, Claude Conrad, Carleton McKenzie, Will Sebring, Charley Dunphy, Austin Jeffers. The lineup has been changed several times thruout the year, but the above is the usual system. Summing up the results of the season’s games, we find we have lost four and won four—not nearly so bad as it might have been. iC ading Grocery The Home of “Ferndell” Coffee Tea Spi ices Canned Goods of all kinds.
