THE OTHER PRINCESS
By KATHERINE K UNZ
O the day arrived when the Prince was to marry the lady whom his
father had chosen for him, though his heart was sad for his own dear
Princess. But, suddenly, a brief moment before the marriage, his
Princess, who had gone over a mountain of glass and braved a sea
of flame for his sake, found him again. And he rejoiced, and showed
her to his father, the King, who gave them his blessing. And so they were
married, and lived happily ever after." So many--almost all, in fact-of the
old fairy stories end in this same way. The Princess always finds the lover
for whom she has undergone a world of agony and pain. It is the proper
ending of every well-regulated fairy tale, it is the conventional ending that
we have come to expect. But, remember-there was another Princess-she
who nearly married the Prince and whom his father had chosen-for her no
lover is produced, no wedding festivities are hers. She fades out of the story,
and the Prince and his Princess live happy ever after-as they ought to, of
course. But what of the other Princess--some one tell me that!
Since childhood I have always felt a grudge against Grimm, Anderson,
and all the other writers of marvelous fairy lore, because the other Princess
was always left in the end with no visible or even prospective lover. On the
delineation of the fortunate Princess all their energies seem to have been ex-
hausted-and the poor little other Princess is simply left alone. How would
you like it if you were just on the point of marrying a Prince-a thing which
your royal parents had urged on you since you were very young-how would
you like it if some strange Princess came and claimed your Prince as her
own? How could you help it that before you knew the Prince he had fallen
in love with some one else-some one who had lost him in some magic way,
and who had worn herself out trying to find him again-would you be
expected to know about that? And then if you were thrust into the outer
dark and saw your erstwhile Prince and his bride right in the dazzle of the
innermost circle of happiness, then how would you feel?. Yet every Prince,
you know, must get his Princess-it is the fairy law, no matter what luck-
less unfortunates must suffer because of it, the law endures, and there is no
You forgot her completely, did you not-that other Princess? And you
thought that, when the book told you they "lived happy ever after," that
everything had gone well and that you might close the book with a satisfied
feeling? But sometimes in a cluster of flowers there is one of the wrong
THE ANNUAL Page fifteen
color which spoils the loveliness of all the rest by its mere presence, so the
gardener takes it out and throws it away then the rest of the flowers fon'n
an harmonious and complete whole. But perhaps the flower which wrought
such trouble was a lovely thing in itself, only position made it a source of
annoyance. So with the other Princess. Probably she had tresses of real
princess gold that hung to her feet and shirnmered and waved in the sun.
Her rank, too, was just as high as that of the fortunate Princess and her
cheeks had just such a royal rose-flush. When she walked along all lower
beings became insignificant, as the daisies seemed black against the "fair
white feet of Nicoletef' She, too, would have passed a restless night had she
been forced to sleep on a pea hidden under seven mattresses, she would have
scaled mountains of glass and have gone as a ragged beggar for the sake
of her dear Prince. She would have become even a scullery-maid--but
she never had the chance. And so she is merely one of the sad, patient race
of those forgotten. Her lucky sister Princess could perform great feats of
love and bring her Prince back to her-not so the other Princess. For her
bolder sister aroused such excitement by her deeds of loving prowess that
the other Princess was left behind-forgotten and alone.
Well--there are many other Princesses in the world. There is many a
Princess who has scaled the hill of glass and fled across the blazing pit, there
is many another Princess who could get only half way up, and who lay there
with bleeding feet and aching heart and clenched, inefficient hands, listening
to acclamations that hailed the successful Princess. Remember, though,
that perhaps the fairy godmother had helped the one, while the other had no
godmother to lend her beautiful gowns done up in walnut shells and lovely,
invisible caps: she had only her own efforts, her own weak hands-poor other
Princess. Perhaps with only a little help she might have won a Prince, too,
but as it was she could only say, with a quiet sigh of renunciation,
"The Prince passed by, with never a look at me,-
. . . . And I wait-alone."
Besides, who wants a Princess whom her lover has scorned? She will
be looked at with contempt and disregard by the world, and this often influ-
ences a Prince. Her proud heart may be almost broken, but she would never
tell, if she has the heart of a real Princess within her.
Literature is full of other Princesses-Tess of the D'Urbevilles, the
Painted Lady, the Woman of Shamlagh, the Maid of Astolat, Ariadne, Pom-
pilia. Sometimes they are other queens, but each is another Princess at
heart, though the wor1d's cold thumb and finger fail to plumb it.
In the case of Tess, it is true there was no other Princess to take her
place-only the cold ethics of an upright man to whom the hard, ignorant
eyes of the world meant more than the eyes of the woman who loved him.
It is true, also, that for five glorious days Tess lived as a real Princess with
Page sixteen THE ANNUAL
a transformed Prince at her side-one who had found his ethics dust and
who strove to make reparation. It is the last of life which one will think of
"when the roving days are past," and Tess's last days were full of the glory
of life-abundant, satisfying, soul-iilled days.
Little Pompilia-what a sad little other other Princess she must have
been during her dreary years of marriage, pent up, powerless, miserable, so
suddenly forced into a grown-up that she scarcely had any intermediate step
between the ignorance of babyhood and the knowingness of womanhood.
But she surely knew that she was another Princess-not because of a faith-
lessness of man, but because of her faithfulness to a real ideal. "In heaven
we have the real true and sure," she says bravely. "Tell him that I am all
in flowers from head to foot." In her case the irresistible cry of the Princess
heart, "Oh, lover of my lifel. My soldier-saint!" was answered not by flesh,
but in spirit.
Then there is the sad tale that seems so much more than a mere love
story-the tragic fate of Phaedra, who built a temple to Aphrodite that she
might, through the great queen's power, win for herself the man she loved.
"Oh, Aphrodite of the sea,
For love have pity on me l"
she prayed, but the inexorable goddess turned a deaf ear on her plaint, and
her life comes down through the ages only as a "name, a story, and a tomb."
Her name remains a symbol of the
"Thwarted spirit, vexed and teased
By yearnings that cannot be eased,
The soul that chafes upon the mesh
Of tenuous yet galling flesh."
Bliss Carman's conclusion to his delicate rendition of Phaedias' story is
an echo of the universal pain:
Ah, fair Greek woman, if there bloom
Some flower of knowledge in the gloom,
Receive the piteous, loving sigh
Of one more luckless passer-by.
Peace, peace, wild heart! Unsatisfied
Since thy dear beauty found a bed
Has every mortal lived and died,
In sea-girt Hellas long ago,
For ever with the dreaming dead,
Immortal for thy mortal woe!"
There are so many other Princesses! Of what use to repeat them-you
know them yourself.
Of course there are many kinds of other Princesses and there are many
varities of Princes. Sometimes he is an ideal that has been followed until
almost within reach-and then some ruder, bolder hand suddenly app,-e-
THE ANNUAL Page seventeen
hended it-the glorious ideal she had clung to for so long, and the loss of
which makes the world a queer, empty place to live in-especially if the
Princess be young and impetuously enthusiastic.. Sometimes the Prince
comes in the guise of a longed-for hope, or a soaring ambition, or a dear
desire-and when they disappear, there is nothing for the Princess to do but
to sit down and wait in patience. Pity the Princess who must wait, crouch-
ing alone in the darkness, waiting for footsteps-is there a greater agony in
life than waiting for footsteps? or else, a greater pain, waiting among a crowd
of ignorant ones to whom her fear is unknown and by whom it is misunder-
stood. Pity the Princess who waits! Her golden hair may become thin and
rough, her eyes become unspoken reflections of the longing within, her rose-
leaf cheeks be sere and yellow, her features may be an a great peace-it is not
the peace of content, but the costlier peace of resignation, the Princess' heart
never can quite forget its youth and lost joy, it remembers into eternity, even
though the bliss was transitory and fleeting, and the pain-brimmed agony is
life-long. Though the world long since has passed by the fact that she ever
lived, she still exists, slipped back from the coldness of human eyes, back into
unrecorded history, back into the crowded, silent ranks of those forgotten.
Perhaps we might mention the other Prince, too, but many sympathies
have been lifted in his defenceg many strong masculine voices have aided
him-and many weaker faminine ones, too. "And the men who never come
off," he said, "who try like the rest, but get knocked down, or somehow miss
--who get no Princess, nor even a second-class kingdom"-this is only a
sample. The other Prince somehow does not get so much contumely from
those around him, a Prince may always strive again, and make his past a
stepping-stone for his future, but, in some queer way, the world seems to
consider a Princess who has failed as a lost atom, whose chances for success
are gone. Why is it so? Only another phase of the fairy law, I suppose,-
the feeling that everyone is bound on the wheel of things and must revolve
with the turnings of the wheel. But why do we so often find the Princesses
at the bottom of the wheel, which does not help them to rise, but passes over
them and crushes them? Poor Princesses! Some of them "with the half of
a broken rope for a pillow at night," some with heavy heaps of regret and
scorn weighing them down, some-and these are the saddest of all-whose
broken hope is a tiny bundle hugged tightly in their arms-a little harmless
atom, whose heritage is grief and shame. Let any one dare to say that this
Princess is not in reality a Queen, just as much as are her lucky sister queens,
sitting proudly on the top of the wheel and gazing down on her in haughty
disdain. So you remember that, when the master went into the garden, "the
little gray leaves were kind to him." He knew the agony of incomprehensiong
he had struggled, bitterly and alone, to remain the captain of his soul, to
keep unharmed the faith and immortal love for which he stood. And the
only real sympathy that came to him was that of a little gray leaf.

i' ET ER brushed a speck of dust from his coat sleeve. It was a hot
july afternoon. "It can't be the train is late," he said to himself,
clutching the little old valise nervously. The breath of the coun-
try was in the air. A bird whistled on a tree near by the little
waiting-room. "I'11 miss the old place, no doubt," he said tremu-
lously, "but," his lips grew iirm, "I've made up my mind."
The train whistled and soon came puffing up to the little station. The
journey was before him. He turned and looked back down the old road he
knew so well. A buggy was coming. He climbed huriedly into the train,
and then gazed anxiously about. In one corner a tired-looking mother was
holding a little boy. He was sleeping, but for a moment Peter was startled.
The boy reminded him of Johnny. "johnny'1l miss his old grandad," he
sighed. He took a seat where he could have an occasional glimpse of the
boy. The other passengers regarded the little old man with some curiosity
at first, but soon returned to their daily papers or their naps. Peter still held
his valise tightly. The train started. The windows were open but the air
was sultry. He longed for the shady woods by the old farm.
"Johnny 'll want me to fix his pole so he can iish in the little brook," he
said sadly, "but mebbe the hired man 'll have time to 'tend to it."
He looked out the window but the green fields seemed to call him away
from the present and so he fell asleep.
Peter woke with a start.
"Have we come?" he said.
"Tickets," The conductor looked bored.
Peter opened the valise. There was nothing in it but a clean oollar and
a few handkerchiefs.
"Any time," growled the conductor.
Peter looked dazed. He fumbled in each pocket of his coat and Finally
with a triumphant smile pulled out an old sock. Very carefully he took out 3
purse and handed it to the conductor.
"I guess there's enough," he said hesitatingly.
The conductor opened the purse gingerly, counted the small coins and
handed it back to Peter. Peter was relieved. He placed it carefully-almost
tenderly in the old sock.
THE ANNUAL Page nineteen
The little boy across the way was awake now and sat staring at Peter.
Peter held out his hand, but the boy stuck out his tongue.
"Don't do that, Adolphusf' The mother shook him roughly. "The old
man won't hurt you. He's too trembly and weak to bother you. He ought
to be in some asylum 'stead of travellin' around at his age."
Peter sank back in the seat. It was true then. He had thought it might
be a mistake. He always felt strong despite his white hairs, but now it must
be true. He looked out the window. Houses were coming in sight. Here
was the city at last! How crowded everything was. In the country-but
then he must not think of the country. No, he had come to live in the city
and perhaps he would become used to it. The train stopped. The passen-
gers crowded into the aisle. Peter grasped his valise more tightly. The
crowd was nearly out now. Peter hurried after.
Peter looked up politely. People in the city are always polite.
"No, I don't believe I'll take one this morning, thank you," he said apol-
The man stared at him so hard that poor Peter was greatly embarrassed.
He hurried to the sidewalk.
"I donit know just which way I'd better go,', he said to himself. "I sup-
pose it must be one of those big buildin's over there."
The little old man started off, but being pushed and shoved by the crowds
of people so exhausted him that he leaned against a lamp-post to rest.
"I must be gettin' weak," he sighed, "weak and trembly. I used to hoe
the taters back at the old place and plow the I-ields with the best of 'em, but
I'm weak and trembly now."
"What's the trouble, old man?" A kind-faced gentleman took him by
the arm. The hurrying people looked at them curiously, but Peter did not
care. It was good to have some one to lean upon.
"I was looking for-for the 'Old Men's Home,' " he said, half ashamed
and yet proudly enough. "Perhaps you know where 'tis and can tell me, sir."
"Well, yes, I can.'i The gentleman paused. '
"Oh, I'm so glad, sir." Peter now spoke almost eagerly. "You see, I'm
anxious to get there 'cause its pretty timesome travelin' this hot weather." He
pulled out his handkerchief and wiped his brow.
' "Are you alone?" the gentleman asked.
"Oh, yes," said Peter, 'Tm alone, but I reckon if you show me the way
I can Find it all right. Is it very far ?"
"Yes, it is rather far, too far for you to walk, but we'll manage some
way," the gentleman replied.
d A cab drew up at the curb and the man helped Peter in and closed the
P330 YWCFWY THE ANNUAL
"To the 'Old Men's Home,' Jim."
Peter struggled with the door.
"Wait, wait," he called.
The driver opened the door.
"I wish to thank the gentleman," he said.
"Oh, that's all right."
The two men, Peter and the tall, broad-shouldered gentleman, shook
"Come and see me," called Peter, as the cab-door slammed.
"What would Annie think if she could see me?" Peter spoke the name
softly. "That was a mighty nice gentleman and this is a fine carriage to be
ridin' in. Perhaps it wont be such a bad place to live after all."
Peter peered out the window. "T he houses is gettin' fewer. Why, I do
believe it is the country after all."
In a few minutes the cab stopped. The driver threw open the door and
helped Peter out. Peter still carried the old valise. Sloping from the side-
walk was a green lawn, and far back among beautiful old trees was a lrge
building. Peter thanked the driver and started up the walk. There was no
one in sight.
"Taking their naps, I guess." Peter spoke almost joyously now. "It's
almost like the country," he said.
He sat down on the porch steps and fanned himself with his hat.
"What can I do for you?"
Peter started. He had almost forgotten why he had come. Turning, he
saw a middle-aged man standing in the door-way.
"Howdy," Peter advanced towards him. "I just come here to live," he
said, "and was admirin' the place. You've got things fixed up most like the
"Step into the office."
The man beckoned and Peter followed him into the office where he sat
twirling his hat uneasily.
"Where are your entrance papers?"
Peter looked dazed.
"Who sent you here ?" The man was becoming impatient,
Peter stopped twirling his hat. He regarded the man gravely.
"Nobody sent me, nobody knows I come," he said, "but I thought I
would, yes, it is better so. Why do you keep me here answerin' questions ?"
The man looked at Peter solemnly.
"You can't stay," he said, "without the papers. We're too crowded, any
yPeter's face filled with dismay. His features were drawn as though he
was in great pam.
"Can't stay," he repeated, "can't stay."
THE ANNUAL Page twenty-one
It was as though some one had struck him. The little old wrinkled face
grew hard, the shoulders, before so erect, drooped slightly. He tried to
arouse himself but sank back in his chair again. He had come for nothing,
then all the tiresome journey was useless, but now he oould not go back to
the farm. He had forfeited all right to return-forever. They would not
receive him. Tom had said he ought to be in a "Home," that Sarah couldn't
stand waitin' on him. He had overheard. Yes, that was why he had come.
No one had known, but Johnny. Sarah had gone to a funeral and the men
were at work in the south field-but now it was all in vain. And where
should he go?
The man was looking at Peter half scornfully, half pityingly.
"We can't keep you here," he said finally.
"Yes." Peter still sat in the chair. The little old valise slipped from
"What's the matter, pa ?" A fat, good-natured-looking woman appeared
in the doorway.
Peter did not look up.
"The old man's a little shaken up," the superintendent replied. "Come
here expectin' to get in, I suppose. Sorry, but he'1l have to leave."
"Now just you listen here, Samuel Abernethy, that old man isn't goin'
to be sent away tonight, anyway, papers or no papers. Don't you see he's
The matron went over to Peter, who was sitting upright now.
"You just come with me," she said, "and we'1l find a place for you to-
Peter looked grateful. He was still weak, but he followed Mrs. Aber-
nethy and she took him to a room where he might rest. "I'll call you at sup-
per time," she said, "and now you lay down there and rest."
Peter obeyed. He was too tired to think Everything seemed whirling
about him. One thing only remained clear in the confusion of his thoughts.
He could not stay. He must leave but not return to the farm, no, that
was impossible now. Where should he go?
He must have fallen asleep. The room was dark and someone was call-
ing. It must be Johnny.
"You can come with me now, for supper's ready."
Ah, now he remembered. johnny had vanished. The matron was a
Seated around the table were the old men of the "Home," The matron
placed Peter by her side. The old men regarded him curiously, half jeal-
ously. But he did not notice. The meal proceded in silence. The old men
ate and drank mechanically and when they had finished each one carried his
plate and cup to the kitchen.
Page twenty-two THE ANNUAL
After supper Peter went to bed. He could hear the old men talking in
querulous tones below, but finally he fell asleep.
The sun was streaming in the little room when Peter awoke. He sat up
in bed. Birds were twittering in the tree outside the window. Everything
seemed happy. Peter was happy, too. He had been dreaming of the old
farm and Johnny.
Breakfast was a counterpart of the supper the night before. The same
monotony prevailed. The matron spoke of the beautiful weather.
"It won't last long, I guess," one of the old men replied. But for the
most part they were sullen and unresponsive.
After the meal was ended, the matron called Peter aside. "Now," she
said, "suppose you tell me where you came from and where your folks live.
I am afraid you can't stay without the papers. It's against the rules, you
Peter was silent.
"Oh, here he is, here's grandada! I've found him." A little boy rushed
into the room. Following him closely a man and a woman were ushered in
by Mr. Samuel Abernethy.
Peter looked on astonished. Could it really be Johnny come to him?
Yes, oh, yes, it was! He held out his arms. Tears were streaming down his
little old wrinkled face. He held the boy close.
"johnny didn't forget his old grand-dad," he murmured.
The matron and the superintendent slipped from the room unnoticed.
The woman came forward and folded the two, Peter and johnny, in her
arms. "Come back, father, dear father," she sobbed. "The old farm wants
you and we want you."
She looked into her husband's eyes. He held out his hand and Peter
grasped it. johnny freed from his embrace ran towards the door.

AN ANCEINT CITY OF CHINA
By BERNICE MURRA Y
away the South Gate Pagoda, and beyond that the walls of the city
where I was to spend six busy, happy months. After two days and
a half spent in a Chinese cart anything that offered a cessation from
its exquisite torture would be welcome, and so Hsu Chou Fu, as I
first saw it outlined against the evening sky seemed to me to be a veritable
haven of rest. I had the distinction of being the first white woman outside
of the missionaries who had ever been in the city, so you see it was real
China, and not the modified variety one gets in the ports.
Imagine, if you can, a city with as many inhabitants as Dayton, confined
inside of a wall, three miles in circumference. Small wonder that half of the
city seems to be on the streets and every little alley is literally swarming
with people. On three sides of the city is the old bed of the Yellow River,
once a busy waterway, now a sandy waste. Before 1852 Hsu Chou Fu was
one of the principal cities on the river. Situated a little over one hundred
miles from its mouth on a bend in the river it was an important port and the
city was a flourishing one.
The people, however, lived in constant fear of the Hoang-ho, and they
called it "Chinese sorrow," for they never knew when it would overflow its
banks, leaving behind desolation and the sound of mourning.
There are many interesting legends connected with the river and these
are used as the basis of some of the stories still told in the tea shops.
On Yuin Long San, one of the hills outside of the city there is a build-
ing made in the shape of a boat which, the story says, was built by a wealthy
ofiicial as a work of merit. At the time of flood all of the people were to
gather in this ship, a la Noah's ark, and be fioated away to safety.
Another legend tells of Shu Guniang, a young and beautiful maiden, the
daughter of a high official, throwing herself into the river at the time of a
flood when the city was threatened with inundation. Her act appeased the
anger of the gods who had sent the flood and it immediately subsided. So
appreciative were the people of the city that they erected a temple, not to
the girl-that would be conferring too much honor upon youth-but to her
parents. The temple may be visited outside of the North Gate to-day.
7 UST at sunset we came through a pass in the hills and saw fifteen li
Page twenty-four THE ANNUAL
Some of the oldest inhabitants will tell you that they remember the time
when the city was a great shipping center surrounded on three sides by the
Hoang-ho, and they declare that it changed its bed in a single night. When
the lights were extinguished in the homes that night in 1852, the city was
threatened with the worst flood they had ever known, but with the first
stirrings of a new day it was found that there was only the muddy bed left
to show that there had even been a river at all.
No one seems to know just how old the city is, but it is certain that it
was a flourishing port at the time of the overthrow of Babylon.
To our eyes unaccustomed to such antiquity the city wall appeared to
be thousands of years old, but the inhabitants call it new, for it has only
three or four hundred years to its credit. The houses as viewed from the
wall seem to be thrown together in a promiscous fashion. We find the Yamen
of the official or the home of the millionaire side by side with the mud hut
of the poorest coolie, wealth and abundance rubbing elbows with abject
poverty. It is a country of sharp contrasts-the high official in his silken
robes sitting at ease in his richly furnished sedan chair is carried on the backs
of dirty coolies, scantily clothed even in winter, and earning the few "cash"
they will receive for their labor by the sweat of their brow.
The strangest thing about it all is the feeling of being a curiosity when
one goes out and it is hard to get used to being called "foreigner," Wherever
you go there is sure to be a curious crowd following and when you turn and
ask them sharply why they follow you, not at all embarrassed. they will
calmly answer that they only wanted to Can Can Clook, seej.
A tour of the shops is made with difficulty on account of the interest
manifested in your prospective purchases by every one who passes. The
maiority of the shops are open to the street and all the customer has to do
is to step up on the narrow platform before the counter and ask for what he
wants. There is nothing to tempt the would-be buyer. One must ask for
the exact article he wants and, failing to get it, there is no substitute offered.
In fact, one is made to feel that the shop-keeper is conferring a favor to wait
upon you at all. In the silk shop we are invited to a room in the rear where
we are given seats and shown the fabrics in that leisurely fashion that only
an Oriental can assume. Failing to find what we want here we are escorted
to a room farther back, and the process of elimination continuing, we finally
find ourselves in the very rear room, small and dingy, but here we are shown
the richest silks, the pride of the shop-keeper's heart. "Few there be who
enter here," for the room is jealously guarded-hence the reason for its be-
ing the last one.
After making our purchases we go out to the street again where our
chairs are waiting for us. Down the narrow street our bearers swing us
with the peculiar cry of the chair coolies, and our shopping expedition is over,

WHERE LAY THE FAULT?
By EDMUND BARKEMEYER
HE had come back. Darley Lare had come back. This piece of
news, whispered from one person to another, was enough to set all
heads in Braunsberg nodding, and to stir the village into a ripple of
unusual excitement. It would be worth while trying to picture Brauns-
berg as it stood that day, feet deep in fallen leaves, rimmed by moun-
tain ranges, and over all the blue sky. Silence was characteristic of the place.
There were no sounds in the air, no hammering, no sign of industry, only the
cry of a bird, or the shriek of a locomotive far away. The shuttered houses
looked desolate and lifeless. Even the streets were quiet. Once or twice a
child, escaping from the thick atmosphere of the low buildings, appeared and
rapidly disappeared, as if instructed by his guardians not to breathe the fresh,
pure air. Once or twice the shutters of a house opened then closed again-
that was all. Life seemed to have taken its departure.
But for all this peaceful exterior, Braunsberg did not lack its gossips.
In parlors, in dark kitchens, and in the other rooms that they called sitting
rooms, great interchange of neighborly chat was going on. There was
"Liddy." She had just come back from the city, and having the reputation
of a high talented speaker, everybody had gathered around her, listening to
her wonderfully constructed sentences, pouring forth as mighty thunder,
varying in tone and pitch. There was "Heddy," explaining in a very satis-
factory way how to make apple butter more juicy, and how to raise young
chickens, then suddenly changing her subject to the topic of the day-Dar-
ley's return. And behind the door, having been told to leave the room, were
Tepsy and Lisse, on the very tiptoe of curiosity, doing their best to overhear
everything through a chink of the door.
"Who's Darley Lare?" Tepsy asked, fishing the name out of the tantal-
izing hum, hum, hum of the low voices.
"I don't know," replied Lisse, with eyes wide open, "some awful person
Poor Darley! It was not very long-live or six years at the most-since
she left her native village, and she was already forgotten, her name being a
strange sound to the ears of that generation that now usurped her place.
She was not "awful" then. The old people remembered her, a willful, beau-
tiful girl, carrying all before her with the impetuosity of youth, llirting now
with this man, now with that stranger, breaking more than one heart. Every
one remembered the time of her engagement with Thomas, that handsome
Page twemgsk THE ANNUAL
fellow, and every one remembered the looks after Darley had broken the
engagement and had vanished from home, and from her aunt. Saying at
first that Darley had gone to visit some of her relatives, old Miss Lare had
told them that she had left her without explaining the cause of her sudden
departure. A dark shadow rested over the fate of this village-child, until
now, at the return of the girl-a girl no more-it had been lifted.
"But when did she come back?" asked Mrs. Wayder, breathlessly.
"This morning," replied Miss Heddy, taking up her needle work again.
"My son went down to the depot to get some freight with his team, and he
fetched her along. She was silent and didn't speak, and how she was
changed, he said. She told him to drive to the house where her aunt-God
bless her-used to live. 'Perhaps they'll take me in there to board,' says she,
and burst right out crying. My son felt pretty bad about it, and he took her
there and fixed it up all right. Well, I just hope somebody'll come and get
her and care for her. He says she looks so yellow and thin and has such a
cough-well, I must be goin'."
"Mother," cried Tepsy and Lisse, unable to resist any longerg "who is
that Darley you and Miss Heddy were talking about?"
"You'd better be quiet. She was a poor girl, who didn't have it as good
as you're having it, and she's come back. You'd better go and see if the
chickens have their corn. It's time they'd be getting some." And in the
excitement of their work Tepsy and Lisse soon forgot their curiosity. But
the mother did not forget, and she prayed long and fervently that day, for
the lost wanderer who had come back to the village.
In the meantime Darley was lying in bed, where as a child she had slept
beside her aunt. The room was little changed. There was the old clock,
still ticking in the same old melancholy wayg there was the old oak shelf in
the corner, where Miss Lare's Bible had its place. There was the mirror
which had reflected a young, beautiful face in those daysg there was the blind
through which the sun had greeted her, inviting her to enjoy herself in God's
beautiful nature. Darley pursued her recollections with languid interest. She
felt tired-too tired to rise. She would rest for a day or two, and then she
would feel better. She wondered if anybody would visit herg and for the
first time in these years that she had been away from her birthplace, a pain-
ful curiosity to know what had been said of her absence awoke in her mind.
Her kind aunt was dead. Would her former friends desert her, too? Darley
closed her eyes, then opened them again and tossed restlessly.
All that day and the next she lay in the room-ill and feverish. Her
landladyhgrought her tea and crackers twice a day, but a sharp, inquisitive
manner d taken the place of her former good nature. Her story must have
beenntold to her. Vllhy had she come back? There seemed to be a power
drawing her back with an immense force-a power irresistible,
THE ANNUAL Page twenty-seven
The third day was a day, the splendor of which could only be fully appre-
ciated in a village as Braunsberg, where there was no smoke, no noise-only
sunshine. Darley felt better. Rising feebly she dressed, and wrapped in a
shawl, sat down beside the open window. A bright sun shone, but the clouds
had deepened on the mountains, and a light breeze was blowing. Looking
out, she saw orderly groups of people passing home from church, and a de-
sire to leave the house seized her. Perhaps nobody knew-perhaps some
kind person might speak tenderly to her-even pity would be sweet. Wrap-
ping herself in the shawl and veil, she crept downstairs and into the street.
Where are the people going? An unusual throng was pressing through
the gates of the village, moving in long lines across the meadow. What
could it mean?
"Where are all the people going?" Darley asked of a little boy, who
stood near the gates with his hands in his pockets.
"Down to see the baptisin'," replied the boy, wonderingly. "Ain't you
going? There's ten of them."
Some very vague recollection Hoated through Darley's mind as she fol-
lowed the crowd. Yes, it was long ago when she was baptized in the pure
waters of the river. She remembered so well the words of the pastor: "May
God keep you as clean as this water, my child." Had she kept herself clean?
She had played with her youth. How bitterly the river reminded her of the
ill-spent days of her life. But had she not also spent her happy childhood
there? There was the shallow where she and Thomas used to playg there
was the meadow-the flowers they had gathered from it had delighted her
aunt so many times. Poor Thomas! She could feel his hand now, and see
the boyish face close to her. They had sat there-strangest memory of all-
when he had asked her to marry him. She wondered if he were living yet
-if he had quite forgotten her. And as she was recalling these moments,
the path she followed almost unconsciously, brought her to the bank where
the members of the church were standing in silent groups.
She shrank back, afraid that the people might see her. But as nobody
perceived her she ventured to press forward. There stood the choir, and just
then the leader gave the tune of one of the old sweet hymns. One stanza-then
a couple slowly descending the bank passed into the water. Step by step
they reached the center of the pool. Darley heard the sacred formula pro-
nounced, then they vanished under the waves. Another baptism followed-
another. Then some unusual excitement ran through the crowd, as a young
man leading a girl, descended the slope. Darley just caught sight of the
girl's face as they passed, a beautiful one framed in dark hair. The ceremony
having been performed, the forms again turned toward the bank, the man
holding the woman with a strong arm. His face-Darley gasped as she
gazed-wore a look of steadfastness and peace which made the strong fea-
Page twenty-eight THE ANNUAL
tures almost beautiful. It was Thomas, the lover of her youth, no longer a
boy, but a man. just then Thomas's eyes, as he slowly ascended the bank,
met hers, and he recognized his lost love.
"just look how white Thomas is, aint he?" whispered somebody nearby
in the crowd.
"But Anne isn't," was the reply. "She's just as pretty as ever. I don't
wonder that he thinks such a lot of her."
Darley heard no more. With desperate footsteps she hurried back across
the meadow, feeling as if she must sink every moment. The words of the
preacher as he baptized them, pursued her-"He will be merciful to you."
Would he? Oh, if he would.
That night Thomas and Anne were sitting in the big chair in the parlor
of Thomas's father's farmhouse. There were tears on her face, and Thomas's
face seemed grave as he stroked her small fingers in his broad hand.
"It's like a shadow over the day we thought would be so happy, Anne.
At all times I am seeing that face-that strange face. My love for Darley
died long ago, and I wouldn't dig it up for anything. But when I saw her
face to-day, so unhappy, dear, I forgot everything that had happened between
us two, and I only thought how I could help her. Don't be angry with me,
darling, but tell me what you think."
"Angry, Thomas, how could I? I love you all the more for being so
tender-hearted. But what can we do?"
"I am trying to think, darling. If we were married it would be easy.
But it won't do for me to go now: people would talk."
"But, Thomas," cried Anne, "why should we mind people's talking if it's
right? You know that we decided to do something in memory of our bap-
tism. Perhaps this has been sent to us to fulfill our promise, who knows,
While kind persons were deciding upon her future, Darley stood beside
the river-she had left the house and had come here.
The night was wild. It had rained heavily during the afternoon. The
unnatural music of the wind, signifying storm, fell like a terrible human
voice upon the ears of the unhappy girl, as she passed along the meadow
path, close to the river. Pausing at the bank, the idea of her present situa-
tion seemed to crush her with terrible force. She bent over-weeping.
"Oh, what a dreadful place this world is," she sobbed. "Oh, if I could
only begin all over again. Isn't there any way to get rid of 1ife's burden?
What did the preacher say-
'He will be merciful to you.'
I-Ie didn't mean me. I wish the preacher would take hold of my arm and
dlp me under as he did this moming with Thomas, and all my past life would
THE ANNUAL Page twenty-nine
slip off, and I could rise up again and begin a new life. Oh dear, that would
She filled her hands with water, and poured it over her burning face.
"That is fine," she said, "nice and cool. I'll go in and stand there where
Thomas stood this morning and perhaps all my pain will go away."
She waded in. Upon reaching the place where the ceremony had taken
place in the morning, she hurried on. The water was at her waist-now above
her breast. She slipped-her foothold gave away-the water was over her
head. Instinctively she struggled for a second, grasped the air-then a sud-
den idea filled her mind, and with a smile she gave herself to the stream and
sank. The moon disappeared behind the dark clouds, the wind, now risen
to its force, moaned drearily-then before the waves of Darley's departure
had ceased, the moon again lighted the circles in the water, and silence pos-
sessed the place.
She was found in the morning. Peace rested upon her face. Death had
washed away all stain, and she seemed to have fallen asleep.
But Thomas and Anne were restless. "We were going to help her-we
were going to be so good to her," they said to each other, "if she had only
lived a little longer."

LOVE AND LIFE
A little blue violet, graceful and shy,
Fell in love with a yellow butterfly
Who chanced one day to go glancing by.
A moment he poised on her petals blue,
A moment her little gold heart thrilled through g
Another moment-away he flew.
He winged his carefree, fluttering way
All through the sunny smiling day,
Past riotous blossoms he loitered gay.
Till a frost came down from the pitiless sky,
And shriveled the wings of the butterfly,
And his last faint breath was a wandering sigh,
As he thought of the violet, graceful and shy,
How he meant to go back to her by and by-
Some time, long ere he came to die.
And she waited on, in longing and fear,
Till her little gold heart grew brown and sere,
And a dew-drop lay, like a tender tear,
On her frail blue petals, that curled and dried
And withered away with wounded pride,
Till the lonely little blue violet died. -Katherine Kunz.

TO A ROSE
A shuttle of fancy flew by wild and fI'CC,
The iibers were light as the foam of the seag
And dyed where the fairies were blending the tints
For hollyhock petals and bloom of the quince.
When to thee in the sun,
Thy fair petals were spun,
And spread a prize by their daintiness won.
When nightly the dew-drops lie down to their rest,
And Zephyrs are choosing where they would bequest,
Thy buds fast asleep are low-bowing their heads
But waiting the dawn's touch to spring from their beds.
Then the dew and the kiss
Of the zephyrs are bliss,
And thy bloom of world more ethereal than this.

With cheeks and eyes aglow from tingling airg
With happy ringing laugh and glances bright,
To Youth the world is fresh with joy and light-
It knows no heavy heart nor aching care,
But has a dream of dreams where all is fair.
The light-poised figure drawn to fullest height,
Tripping along, unconscious, forms a sight
That world-worn men in memory long may bear-
O blithsome Spirit, free from any stain,
Alive in every quickening vein with wealth
They view, not that of doubting age, is truth.
That thou must toil and labor hard to gain-
In fair and lofty visions lies thy wealth,
And rich thou art beyond a king, O Youth!

lf HE Freshmen have passed almost a year in our midst and by this
time their gay and verdant green has become dim and tarnished.
Indeed, they look almost like Sophomores, except to an expe-
rienced eye-but once in a while, even yet, their freshness crops
out in some fashion.
This class is an intelligent body of youngsters and have adopted a unique
and wholly new constitution. This constitution admits of three classes of
members. The first class, active members-those who are of regular Fresh-
men standing and in passable standing in their classesg second class, charter
members-those who have fallen by the wayside and consequently are not in
good standing in their classes, the third, honorary members-those whom
this class may elect into their organization as members.
This is the first time any organization has adopted a constitution re-
stricting membership according to student application, and it will be very
interesting following its success. The Freshmen have chosen Mr. Showalter
as advisor and the following officers:
Editress-Edna E. Miller.
l HE Sophomore class are now almost juniors and some of them
have already assumed the airs and dignities of a mighty Junior,
It is even whispered that some are putting forth dramatic buds,
in hopes that they may be chosen for the junior play next year.
While, as a rule, the Sophomore classes do nothing startling
-give no plays-are not even green enough to attract attention, still it is
this year which lays the foundation for the harder junior and Senior years.
Thus the present class has been busy getting a good start in class organiza-
tion and hopes to have an unusually successful junior year.. The members

The Senior Class has been working hard to retrieve its past reputation,
and, feeling that it has at last attained its ambition, is sinking into a feel-
ing of complacency. The class oliicers have tried earnestly to fuliill their
duties in the best possible way. They are as follows:
After much discussion, a play and cast were finally chosen, that proved
eminently successful. The play proved to be the cleverest comedy ever given
by a class at Steele and was also a financial success. The people of the cast
seemed to realize how much depended upon them, and rose to the occasion.
The cast was chosen by the class and were:
Mr. Pettibone-Russel Tompert.
Mrs. Pettibone-Hazel Gay.
Mr. Bender-Milton Wright.
Mrs. Bender-Helen Albaugh.
Mr. Alfred Hastings-Harold Snyder.

FORUM LITERARY SOCIETY
THE ANNUAL Page thirty-seven
The Forum, under the name of the High School Literary Society, was
organized in 1892 by a body of earnest hard-working boys. At first the meet-
ings were held at the Y. M. C. A. and at the homes of the various members,
but later the place of meeting was changed to Room 17 of Steele High School,
where it still holds session on Thursday nights. In 1894 the boys decided to
publish a paper, and in November of that year the first issue of the "Steele
Review" appeared. A little later, the boys, feeling they had established a
creditable record, from a literary standpoint, gave their first banquet with the
determination to have an equally good social record. It was such a splendid
success that the yearly banquets have become the customary thing. In order
to prove to the school that their literary standards were not lowered by their
interest in social functions, they held an open meeting, which effectually
stopped all criticism. Not long after this the boys decided to choose a more
classical name, and finally determined upon the "Forum," which calls to mind
a picture of white-haired wise-looking Roman noblemen, drawing up the
laws of the greatest nation in history. The boys have worked hard to make
themselves leaders in this their Alma Mater and they have succeeded in estab-
lishing a record that any society might be proud of.

A demand among the Freshmen and Sophomore girls for a literary so-
ciety in which they might receive the benefits of literary work, independent
of that of the class room, and in which they could obtain training for the
Eccritean and Spur during their upper class years, resulted in the organiza-
tion of the Agora Literary Society. Since dates are stupid things, and exact
ones difficult to obtain, the world will be content to know that this organiza-
tion was started during 1897 or 1898. Since that time no one has doubted
that for such a society there was a mission, or that the Agora has fuliilled
it creditably. Affairs have not always moved smoothly, however. At times
internal war has caused factions, and on one memorable occasion the society
was even disbanded for a few months because it had incurred the wrath of
those in authority. It can justly be said, tho, that as a rule the Agora in the
past stood for good scholarship and conduct in its members, and for real work
in its program.
Those of some years ago will remember that she took her part in the
annual fall meeting when the Eccritean, Spur, and Agora met for a love feast.
In that "feast of reason," each society had representatives who gave the pro-
gram, the climax of which was a grand debate by a team composed of three
girls on each side. Those were good meetings and even better days! The
Agora has cause to remember them with pride. Now, as formerly, she is
prospering. Her alumni roll has some of the best remembered names that
Steele knows. Any society who puts the plow to the origin soil, roots out the
weeds, and plants the seeds which grow to fruit-bearing trees in the upper
class societies and in after life, deserves credit. All this the Agora has done,

THE EUPHRONEAN SOCIETY
A "long felt want" is a term that may be applied properly to the youngest
of our literary societies, the "Euphronean," consisting of twenty-one line
fellows, with Arthur Diefenderfer as president. A series of attempts have
been made in years past to organize a society among the younger boys of the
school, as a sort of feeder to the Philo, Forum or Gavel, which consist of
boys of the upper yearsg but the "Lyceum" of six or eight years ago died a
natural death, and the "Erodelphian', five years back was dissolved because
of its fraternity membership, and when the present organization was formed
of Freshmen and Sophomores, it was prophesied that it would be short
lived as its predecessors.
However, it has weathered the storms of almost Five years, and its mem-
bers not only hope, but are certain that it is on a firm basis, and are using
all their best energies to make it a profitable Fixture of Old Steele.
Its officers and members are as follows:
The society meets Wednesday afternoons in Room 17, and often members
of the older societies are present to encourage beginners and to look for
future members for their own bodies. Come and visit us.

ary standard which was set by the founders. With the able assistance of
their advisor, Miss Breen, they have up to this time been able to accomplish
their purpose. The programs have been not only instructive, but have been
of some special interest to each member. The regular literary numbers have
been interspersed with music, which has proved a delightful feature.
The work of the year has been under the direction of Miss Myers, Miss
Summers, and Miss Leihgeber. Miss Myers chose for her subject "American
Poets." The girls showed their interest and loyalty to the society by their
cooperation with the president in making the First meetings of the year some
of the best. Miss Summers' term was devoted to the study of "Japan" In
connection with this study, Miss Bernice Murray gave a most delightful
sketch of life in Japan, as she had seen it in the past year. The girls have been
enjoying interesting programs on the subject "Northern Mythology," which
Miss Leihgeber selected for her term. The new president, Miss Burtanger,
has chosen "Our West" for the study of the last weeks of the year. This is
of special interest to loyal Americans, and the girls are anxious to make it
one of the best of the year.

HISTORY OF THE GAVEL LITERARY CLUB
The Gavel Literay Club of Steele High school was organized in May,
1902, by Mr. Clarence A. Pfeffer and several friends as true and purposeful as
himself. The colors chosen were red and White, and the motto, "Victory and
Truth," has inspired us all to truth and to victory. With the help of the
faculty and their own untiring efforts, the club was firmly established before
the end of the term, but it was not until the following semester that it began
to make itself known to the school.. Since then, through the efficient work
of its many members, our club has raised itself from a modest beginning
and has now become a factor in the literary and social life of Steele.. Our
publications, The Focus and Steele Semi-Annual, have won a just popularity
from the student body.. The victorious debate with Randolph High, of West
Milton, the Mock Trial and Minstrel Show, in 1906, and the Gavel-Philo
Debate, in March, 1907, show the club's ability in other literary lines.
The past year has been marked by strides of advancement. Under the
first president, Lloyd Smith, the membership was enlarged and the Decem-
ber issue of the Semi-Annual started. This paper, a Financial and literary
success, came out under the leadership of Wesley High. The excellent liter-
ary programs of the next term were clue to the generalship of True Rife. In
the last term, under Ray Preston, we hope to continue and augment, if pos-
sible, our literary work, to publish a better paper than ever before, and to in-
crease our social prestige by several informal affairs. By which, we hope to
leave as a heritage to the Gavel members of next year a club that will be
equal to the older societies of Steele.

The Eccritean was established the year before the Civil War, and contin-
ued through that period. In the beginning the work was principally to benefit
the girls by broadening their minds towards a better education. After the
war the society was disbanded to be reorganized under our teacher Miss Mayer.
From that time it has continued as a literary society for members from the
junior and Senior classes. The programs for the year are chosen by the
presidents and rendered by the members in the regular meetings on Friday.
It was customary, also, up to the last few years, to have an opening meeting
in the spring to show the work of the girls during the terms preceding. Dur-
ing the last ten years the annual work of the Eccritean has been to publish
a book, the profits from which are partly used for the benefit of the school.
A year ago was begun the first publication of the Year Book, and this year
the second volume was issued. The closing term of the year is now being
enjoyed under the leadership of Miss Metzler, whose subject is "Norwegian
The success of the Spur Annual we feel is assured, from the time and
work they have devoted to it.

In the MacDowel1 Club, now three years old, there are enrolled thirty
active members. These members make it possible to say that very enter-
taining and instructive programs are furnished, that, in ever striving after
the best programs to be attained, a marked degree of excellence has been
reached. As the members are very much interested in music, the majority
are able to render very efliciently either piano or vocal numbers. The musi-
cal program is interspersed with sketches on the life of some great composer,
with musical anecdotes, and current events from the musical world.
During the first semester, the club was under the able leadership of Miss
Edith McGrew, who chose as her subject, "Wagner.,' Very interesting talks
were given, and representative piano compositions Were rendered. At the
close of the iirst presidency, Miss Anna Maloney was elected president, but
soon after,-much to the regret ofthe members,-she resigned. To complete
the unfinished term and the year, Miss Helen jackson was chosen. She has
wisely chosen to consider one noted master of music at each meeting. The
musical numbers are interspersed with talks on his life and works.
The club attributes a great part of its success to the very efficient ad-
visors, who ever work in its interests,-Miss Breene and Mr. Tebbs.

In May, 1862, twenty-three members of the school met and organized
the High School Debating Club, but the society was disbanded after a few
years of successful existence, most of its members being called away to join
the ranks of their country's defenders. In 1869 the society was organized
under the name of the Philomathean Literary Society. A pleasant feature of
the society has been its mock courts held almost annually since 1874. By these
means the members have been taught the modus operandi of a court of law,
and enjoyed themselves very much besides. The pin now in use was adopted
in 1887, and in 1882 the "High School Times" began its existence. It was
then a four-page monthly, in newspaper form, but was enlarged in 1887
to magazine form. At present it is an illustrated magazine varying from
24 to 56 pages, and stands forth as one of the best amateur productions in the
country. The list of members of the Philomathean Society is large. Upon it
will be found the names of many of Dayton's most prominent citizens, and we
know that our present Philo members will comprise the influential business
men of the future.

The majority of people always think of the Spur as a comparatively
young society, and credit us with but nine or ten years on our birthday cal-
endar. But this is far from the real facts. Some years ago, some time near
the year 1884, in that interval when there was no society for girls, a group
of girls in old Central High School organized themselves into the "Spur Club,',
and that was the real beginning of the Spur Society of to-day. These girls
were Miss Leila Thomas, Miss Elizabeth G. Evans, and Miss Elizabeth Doren.
The society pursued the usual course of literay societies until the year 1892,
when, with that outgoing senior class, the last Spur girl had graduated from
In 1900 some energetic girls resolved to resurrect the long defunct "Spur
Club," and with the help of Miss Evans organized the present Spur Society,
which we know. While they reorganized the society, it is practically a con-
tinuation of the old "Spur Club," for we have the same pin, motto, and consti-
tution, and We are very proud to have on our Alumna list the names of the
"Spur Club" members and to feel that we belong to the same society.

AN APPRECIATION OF THE GOLDEN RULE.
We were seated in assembly on a sleepy April day,
When our principal announced to us there was something he would say,
So we listn'd in rap't attention to hear the story told,
But when the words came forth, they were the very words of old:
"Up the middle and down the ends,
Straight up the aisles and around at the bends,
Obey Freshman: 'Bey it Soph.:
Obey it Junior, 'Bey it Prof.,
And if you all will follow this rule
There'll be no confusion in Steele Hi School."
For two days, these directions lingered in each head:
We forgot our lessons but ne'er what he had said,
But, like an absent-minded cuss, I very soon forgot,
I nearly reached the second Floor before I was caught.
Maybe the lecture caused the change, maybe the sweet refrain,
For in a more decisive tone, he said those words again:
"Up the middle and down the endg
This is a rule you can't amend,
And, if again you break the law,
I'1l explain it to your pa."
So everytime I went up stairs, I went the proper way, .
I rambled up the middle and went down the end stairway,
But when I saw no one in sight, I ran up the wrong stairs,
But way before I reached the top, I'd begun to say my prayers-
For a teacher on some landing, all at once burst into sight,
And when she yelled this song at me, I nearly died of fright:
"Go down that stairway right away, you've heard the rule before,
Come up the middle stairway, and meet me at the door."
Don't ask me what that teacher said, it was strict I will allow,
But I'm going DOWN the end stair way, and UP the middle now.
So this ends the story, that I have tried to tell,
There is a moral in it, and I hope you learn it well,
We always keep the stringent laws
Laid down by our dear pa's and ma's,
So why not try to keep this rule
And have a better Steele High School.
I'm sure a repetition of this rule will not offend,
just remember, "Up the middle stairwayf, then "go down the end."

The year just passed through in football, was, without a doubt, one of
the most, if not the most, successful, that Steele has ever had. We have, as
spoils, championship of Southern Ohio, and also over two hundred dollars in
the treasury made from the games. We can claim the championship because
we defeated the best Southwestern teams in our district, and because Ham-
ilton High School, a team that we defeated twice very decisively, beat the
best team in Cincinnati, which had the championship of the Southern district.
The money in the treasury represents the spirit manifested by the High-school
students in coming out to the games.
The men never complained about the work, but always did it cheerfully
and with spirit. They were to the last man abstainers from both alcoholic
drinks and tobacco, stood high in their classes, so high in fact that although
a man was required to be up in four studies in order to play, yet out of the
twenty odd men who were on the squad, not a one was debarred from the
game because of low grades in his studies. They all got along well in the prac-
tices, and were entirely without that feeling of petty jealousy which is shown
by some teams. Taken all in all it would be hard to iind a team that ever
represented the high school, that was ever as well qualified to do it as the
The most of our best games were played at home, but there were two out
of town which were about the hardest of the whole season. The first of these
was the first game played with Hamilton. That game was played on
about the worst day of the whole season. It rained, hailed, and sleeted
until the time that we left for Hamilton. The train was late at least two
hours, so that by the time we got to Hamilton and out to the park, a distance
of almost a mile, it was very nearly dark enough to go home. The park would
have been all right, but as it had been raining all day, it was in frightful
shane, about one-fourth of it covered with mud to the depth of three or four
inches. We started to play and made about eighteen points during the first
half, but at the end it was so dark that we wanted to stop the game, but the
Hamilton captain would not consent, so we were compelled to start the
second half. It was during this half that D. Boyd was hurt. We played a
few minutes after he was injured, but as it finally grew so dark that the ball
could not be seen, the Hamilton captain finally agreed to stop the game under
the condition that we would play them the next Saturday at Dayton. This
we were willing to do, and the next week they came up to be defeated once
more by a score of 35 to 11.
We played the other hard game with Springfield after we had defeated
them here at Dayton on a good enough day, but the men were not in
lit condition to play the game. Because of that fact, and also because Spring-
field had been working up a defense for the plays which they knew we
would try, we were compelled to leave with no score on either side. It
was the opinion of the whole team that had they played with their accustomed
energy we would have won the game. However, as we had defeated them
once by a score of 35 to 0, we were not discouraged with that one blot on our

Basket-ball is comparatively a new sport in Steele. In all her athletic
history but four teams have been organized to represent her in that game.
But not withstanding that fact, the team of 1909-1910, handicapped by not
having a coach, played the best teams in the state to a standstill.
The season opened with a defeat. After three days of practice we at-
tempted to defeat Richmond on Lakeside floor. As was expected, they de-
feated us 23 to 20. The team, crippled by the absence of Shively and Landis,
played a slow uninteresting game. But the defeat woke us up to the fact that
we must work, for but one week remained before the Stivers game.
That first Stivers game was a revelation to members of both schools.
Stivers expected to defeat us, and after the poor showing against Richmond,
the Steele rooters would not have been surprised if such an event had oc-
curred. But the team literally played Stivers off their feet, running up the
highest score of the season against them 37 to 19.
Our second defeat came after the holidays. The trip to West Milton
resulted in the team from that city beating us 20 to 16. The game was played
on a floor one-third the size of the rink, but against a team that has no equal in
the state, for West Milton at the close of the season won the State Champion-
ship, defeating Plain City 21 to 20, Mansfield, and Delaware, all in one day.
Then came our revenge. We clearly demonstrated that we were Rich-
monds's superiors by defeating them on their own Hoor 24 to 11. The game
was rough and more interesting than the score would indicate.
The next Friday the team journeyed to Hamilton and defeated that High
School 22 to 20. Steele's guards held the fast Hamilton forwards to 4 bas-
kets, the rest of the points being thrown from the foul line. This last pro-
cedure was made possible through the courtesy of the Hamilton official.
just as in football, Hamilton came back the next week with blood in her
eye. But what was the use? We gave them one more point but took ten
more ourselves, score 30 to 21. That Hamilton bunch "looked" like a college
team. They must have averaged 165 or 170 pounds, but they didn't know
how to use it.
Up to the time Piqua played us they had, in the last three years lost
but three out of forty-five games played. We made it four out of forty-six.
The game was fast and replete with good pass work. Good basket-shooting
brought the score up to 33 to 16.
Then came our first long trip. Last year Doane Academy, preparatory
to Denison, played us there, and defeated us 28 to 22. This year they gave
us another chance, but with a different result. They led us up to the last five
minutes of play, but some marvelous shoots by Shively brought us out ahead
29 to 23. The fellows were shown a good time during their stay at Denison
by the old Steele fellows there.
After a rest of two weeks we played our second game with Stivers. Since
the two teams had met early in the season Stivers had improved wonderfully.
But not quite enough! In a game, in which interest was always at the high-
est pitch, we defeated them again, but by the close score of 29 to 23.
Our third defeat was handed to us by Plain City. After a ride of five
hours, the team representing that metropolis, on a small and poorly-lighted
fioor, conquered us by a score of 24 to 12. This was the worst defeat of the
season, and it was administered by a team second only to West Milton, who
defeated them in the state tournament 21 to 20.
The game for the championship of Southern Ohio followed. After our
defeat at West Milton, the team was confident that they could turn the tables
on their own floor. Their confidence was misplaced, but not by a large
margin. In the presence of a large crowd of both Steele and West Milton
rooters, we lost the most exciting and roughest game of the season 22 to 21.
At no time in the game could the winner be picked, for throughout the last
half, one minute would find Steele ahead, the next would find the opponents
leading. But at the final whistle they were one point ahead: but that point
won the championship of Southern Ohio and ultimately of the state.
We closed the season at Piqua, whom we defeated for the second time
24 to 18. The game was rough and marked by the basket shooting of Landis.
This last game closed the most successful basket-ball year in the history
of that sport in Steele. It was not only a success as a team, but it was also
financially. A record of 367 points to our opponents 240, a balance of 380.00
in the treasury, and not a fellow debarred because of his studies, is a record
any team can be proud of.

THE BASEBALL OUTLOOK
Steele is exceptionally fortunate this year in having been so admirably
represented in football and basket ballg in the former being championsg in
the latter second to few, if any. Her reputation, however, will be complete,
for she will not be like many schools, champion in one line of athletics and
disgraced in another. Such a successful year in athletics has seldom been
and possibly never will again be experienced by Steele, for what she has done
in football she will do in baseball and on the track.
The baseball outlook for 1910 is even brighter than that of last year when
Steele won every game save one, the first. We have practically the same
team to depend on this year as we had last, there being only two vacancies.
Our captain is our distinguished football, basket-ball, track, and baseball
hero, Marvin Pierce, one of the best and most dependable of all those
athletes of whom Steele can be justly proud. Besides being captain he is also
the star and mainstay of our heavers. Too much honor cannot be bestowed
upon him. But we must not place all our praise on one alone, for there are
others who likewise deserve it. The work of a pitcher can never be brilliant
if he has not a skillful catcher to uphold him. As Steele does not lack in the
pitching line, so does she not lack in the catching line. In Clarence Shively,
Steele has a bright and shining star, and as he would do anything to save
Steele's reputation and fame, so ought Steele to do the same in honoring and
praising him. We can all feel highly elated by having two such men as Pierce
and Shively, the latter our basket-ball captain for the last two years, to rep-
resent us on the athletic field. At first base we will again rejoice in seeing
one of our steady mainstays, Ralph Wright, the hero in many a basket-ball
game and formerly along football lines. At second we will see a new face,
for this position has been made vacant by the departure of "Nellie" Taylor.
Although the one fortunate enough to obtain this position will be new to
us, he will not be new to baseball, for none, but one who has been tried and
has withstood the test, will be so rewarded as to receive this position. We
will still have with us the two small but mighty men who held down short
and third last year, Ralph Wood and Stewart Spickler. In the field we will
be upheld by two of our former standbys, Homer Maltby and Wm. Maloney,
at left and center respectively. The one remaining position in the garden is
right field, but never fear, for there are many worthy ones clamoring for this
position. But now how much interest would be shown if we would not buck
up against some very strong teams? Here, again, we have nothing to fear,
Page sixty-two THE ANNUAL
for we have as our baseball manager the energetic and zealous worker Edward
Kohnle, who has games scheduled with teams against whom our manager of
last year refused to battle because of his fears of defeat.
To such a team can we well refuse our support? They work hard for usg
consequently don't we owe something to them? If so, we should be present
at every gameg if not, we would be the most unpatriotic lot that ever walked in
Steele High School. All this team needs is to hear your yells and applause
back of their every glorious effort, and we will have also the championship

well, that everybody in the class be-
came violently seasick. The program
was cut short, however, by the en-
trance of Prof. Loos, followed by sev-
eral teachers of the neighborhood, who
protested against their wasting their
musical talent upon one class, and re-
quested them to wait till some future
time, when the whole school could be

THE EVOLUTION OF PA'S
By WILLIAM G. MARVIN
My dad, he got a new straw hat
Some sev'ral years ago,
When panama's were all the rage,
So pa got his for show.
He wore it to the meetin' house,
And maybe he wasn't proud,
When he found hisself attractin'
A most admirin' crowd.
But dad don't wear his hat no more,
For when sis came home from town,
She said,"I'll wear that now myself,
With my sash around the crown."
She wore the hat and made a hit
With the village boys alright,
Until she had the parlor full
'Most every Sunday night.
Then ma thought she would wear the hat,
Tho' why she didn't say,
She didn't make a hit like sis,
So she put the hat away.
I thought it was a sin to let
The hat lay 'round and waste,
So I took it out and turned it up
On the side, to suit my taste.
The fellers thought that I was swell,
And jim Brown got one too,
Then I got tired of Pa's old hat,
And gave't to our cook Sue.
But every straw hat has its day,
Some tear, while others fade,
just now the horse is wearing Pa's
For an up-to-date sun-shade.

STUDIES IN HOME
No matter what a woman's morals may be
this season, her hats must be eccentric.
Fortunately, so wide a latitude is allowed
in the spring and summer fashions that she
may utilize almost any of the means at her
command, and achieve attractive results.
For No. 1, take a large matting rug, cut a
hole in the center of it, and insert a wire
crown. Fasten the rug to the crown on one
side and strew the hat thickly with ostrich
feathers. Tilt at an angle of forty-five degrees.
The effect is deliciously piquant.
One of the daintiest of Paris importations
is picture No. 2, and it may easily be copied by
any woman with a small purse and deft lingers.
Cover a wire frame with white malines,
then stud thickly with calbouchons of real
pearls and emeralds. Pluck the tail feathers
from your own or your neighbor's peacocks,
and fasten on the right side of the hat. This
will give the appearance of great height to a
To reproduce Figure No. 3, take a small
basket, remove the handles and bottom, starch

pin in around the top of hat or bottom of
basket and let it stand out about three feet in
the rear. This makes a very non-expensible
and out-of-the-way hat.

She wants an Easter hat.
She wants to read her title clear
Unto a stylish flat.
She wants a four-seat motor carg
She wants a real Worth green,
She wants a trip to Europe, or
At least to Newport town.
She wants a cask of rare cologneg
She wants a diamond ping
She wants a carriage all her own,

Blow, blow, blow,
From thy avenue bed, O dust!
And I would that my tongue could utter
The curses with which I bust.
Oh, well for the high school boy,
If a brush he can borrow or beg!
Oh, well for the high school girl
If a whisk broom remains on the peg!
And the buzzing auto skims

A cloud that stifles me still.

And it chaps at every gust.

Pianos, Player Pianos and Musical Instruments of the better class.
Our New Piano Wsrerooml Are on the second loor. Musical goods on the int door.
A PIANO that will not keep in tune is
practically worthless. By original
and intelligent methods of construction
Csome of them patentedb, added to the best
quality of material and workmanship em-
ployed in all strictly iirst-class makes, the
Ivers 63 Pond
has achieved tune-staying results which place
it in a class by itself. It is not exaggerating
to say that it costs less than half for yearly
tunings what ordinary pianos do. Practise
true economy by buying this make. Over three
hundred educational institutions have adopted
them, and there is reason for this-they last.

For Women.-Oxford, Ohio
SODH3 REASONS WHY The Western College makes a strong claim are: U
WESTERN IS A SAFE PLACE, besides being beutiful and healthful. Physical
health is carefully guarded at Western. The Western's campus is so charming that it
constantly invites the student to out-of-door life. No parent need feel uneasy for the
physical vigor of his child or for her moral Well being. U
SOCIAL CULTURE is one of lVestern's strong points. The graces of true, gentle, nu
refined womanhood always become a part of the individual girl's life. U
INTELLECTUAL INSPIRATION AND ATTAINMENTS at Western are equal to the
best. The Western College for Women is an institution of high rank. It ls a member H
of the Ohio College Association. :'
HEART LIFE COUNTS in all true success. In this belief Western is Hrm. Western 4:
believes that Christian character is the best character. ll
SPECIAL COURSES ARE OFFERED to suit individual cases. And besides the regular 'V
college courses thorough courses are also given in Music, in Art, in Art Crafts and in z
Domestic Science. 0
STUDENTS MAY ENTER WIHOUT EXAMINATION lf they have been graduated
from accredited high schools. ,,
THE COST IS LESS for these advantages at The Western College than it ls ln the H
Eastern colleges of Western's rank.
WESTERN IS NEAB HOME for Ohio people. 9

Upon the way a man spends his
time outside of business very large-
ly depends his efiiciency in busi-
Many prominent men of large
affairs are to-day making music
This has come about since the
invention of the PIANOLA, an
instrument that makes music an in-
timate part of the lives of persons
wholly without musical training.
The very act of playing the
PIANOLA is restful to busy
brains. It is easy to play, yet it
rewards the degree of intelligence
that is put into the playing.
This is one of the things that
makes the PIANOLA appeal to
the kind of men who are tempera-
mentally active, and like to be
active even in their pleasures.
The Aeolian Company's record
of sales shows that the PIANOLA
is bought by leaders in the busi-
ness World, by bank presidents,
corporation ofiicers, Wall Street
men, captains of industry in every
Such men know that an evening
spent with the PIANOLA, in the
atmosphere of beautiful music,
and in the home circle, is wisely
Music, even in its lighter and
more popular forms, has a distinct
tonic value to the mind. It clears
up brain fag and drives out the
recollection of petty annoyances.
Particularly is this true when you
produce the music yourself
The making of the PIANOLA,
an integral part of the piano has
vastly broadened the usefulness of
the instrument. In the PIANO-
LA PIANO, the keyboard is al-
ways ready for playing by those
who have command oftechnique.
But, in addition, the musically un-
taught may also find solace and
pleasure in direct contact with the
great art of music.
