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 amendment possible. 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: CC 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. Page eighteen THE ANNUAL PETER By MARGARET E. HOWARD 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. "Tickets." 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. "Cab, sir?" 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- ogetically. 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. "Here, Jim." d A cab drew up at the curb and the man helped Peter in and closed the oor. 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 hands. "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 country." "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 wa ." 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 his hand. "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 nearly exhausted?" 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- night." 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 reality. 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 know." 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. "Come, grandada," he cried imperiouslyg "come, I want to fish in the brook."

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, THE ANNUAL Page twenty-live 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 I guess." 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, Thomas?" 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 be good." 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." Q8 val 'AC 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.

BOCK III T Page thirty-two THE ANNUAL FRESHMAN CLASS 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: President-Arthur Diefenderfer. Vice-President--Frances Brown. Secretary-Fred Blumenschein. Treasurer-Mr. Miller. Sergeant-at-Arms-Robert Pocock. Editress-Edna E. Miller. JJ-Al SOPHGMORE CLASS 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 ANNUAL Page thirty-three have chosen blue and white as their colors, have-chosen a pin and have adopted several good rousing yells.. They are guided by the following officers: President-Boyd Compton: Vice-President-Marguerite Kinzig: Treasurer-Meatha Kopp: Secretary-Robert Pool: Editress-Ruth T eeter: Sergeant-at-Arms-Myron Downing: -Al -A3 at JUNIOR CLASS The members of the junior class are still working with the same en- thusiasm and order which has been characteristic of them since they entered Steele.. Clarence Fox, the president, has proven himself very competent. The rest of the officers are: Vice-President-Hazel Richardson: Secretary--Kathryn Schaelferz Treasurer-Robert Burns: Editress-Charlotte Bowen: Sergeant-at-Arms-Harry Moran: They have selected as their play "Seven Twenty-Eight? This play was written by Augustin Daly and dramatized by john Drew and Ada Rian.

The class oliicers have tried earnestly to fuliill their duties in the best possible way. They are as follows: President-Lloyd Smith. Vice-President-Forrest Kiester. Secretary-Helen Arnold. Treasurer-john Young. Sergeant-at-Arms-True Rife. Editress-Irma Blau. 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. Evangeline Bender-Marion Luyster. Fifi Oritanski-Corinne Thompson. Mr. Dabney-Philip McKee.

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. john Sutton Wm.

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, and more.

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.

Since the organization the members have worked diligently to maintain the high liter- 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.

THE ANNUAL Page forty-five 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.

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 Mythology. The success of the Spur Annual we feel is assured, from the time and work they have devoted to it.

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. The present oflicers are: President-Miss Helen Jackson.

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. Raymond Aull.

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 the school. 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.

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. MORAL. 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." E ANNUAL Pagg fifty- BOOK IV.:-'ATHLETICS Page any-six THE ANNUAL SCORES FOR 1909.

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 1909 team. 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 record. Page fifty-eight THE ANNUAL TH E Photo by Snlifll BASKET-BALL TEAM THE ANNUAL Page fifty-nine BASKET- BALL 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.

West Milton THE ANNUAL page Si,,ty,o,,, THE BASEBALL OUTLOOK FOR 1910 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 in baseball.

Page sixty-four THE ANNUAL GRIN DS just a few More weeks and then We'll graduate With 1910. But some of us, P'haps six or seven Will have to wait For 1911. And we wonder whether the Senior Class will leave anything to the school. And now Freda McWilliams has ex- pressed a desire to try for the track team. A few weeks ago, in the first period, the pupils in the rooms in the vicinity of 17, were surprised and delighted to hear a fine concert of popular music which was being rendered in that room. Fraulein Stover presided at the pianola, assisted by Fraulein Pereles. The famous contraltos, Gilbert Kie- faber and John Young, rendered "My Southern Rose" in such a realistic man- ner, getting in the bumpy effect so 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 called together and enjoy the experi- ences of a rough ocean voyage. B. Brown-"I hope'he doesn't read those grades in class." Check Adler-"I don't care if he does. Mine will be so low nobody will hear it." Harry Schaeffer-"Won't you miss me when I'm far away?" Charlotte Davenport-"No, I shall always think of you as very close." Wesley High, who, on the night of the Senior Play was peeking through the stage door, as the theater was fill- ing up, was asked by a fellow actor: "How's the house?" "Well," answered Wesley, "there are some out there. But," he added im- pressively, "we're still in the majority, old boy, still in the majority." They say that ignorance is bliss, Now, please don't think I'm scrappy, But I have often noticed this- That most of us are happy. Tub-"They say, dear, that people who live together, get to lookalike." Olive-"Then you must consider my refusal as final." Miss Alice Hunter received a note from the mother of one of her study- hall pupils, the other day, which made her highly indignant. It read, "Please excuse Minnie from being absent from school yesterday, as she fell in the mud on her way uptown. By doing so you will greatly oblige Her Mother."

Garrett--"All rightg I came in fourth." Rice-"How many were in the race?" Garrett-"Four." McSherry says he has lived on his reputation for two years. 'No wonder he has such poor health! "All history repeats itself" A proverb claims I've heard. But when in class I'm called upon, Mine never says a word." Can anybody tell us how many teams there are in the Epworth League? Bill Marvin-"There are really only two perfect boys in this school." "And who is 'the other one?" in- quired Bill's friend. THE BALLAD OF FREDERICK GEORGE BAER. "Papa dear-sh-listen here!

"We always laugh at our teacher's jokes, No matter how bad they beg Not because they are funny, but- Because it is policy." "I presume," said Elliott Morrill stonily, at the conclusion of the dis- pute with his landlady-"I presume you will allow me to take my belong- ings with me." "I am sorry," was the icy reply, "but your other collar hasn't come from the laundry yet." Listen to the ocean moaning, Moaning soft and low. All because some big fat bather Walked upon its undertow. We notice that Russell Tompert moved up and down the stage all the time he was acting. He knew his pub- lic. He realized that if he stood still he ran the risk of being hit by some- thing. Page sixty- six THE ANNUAL 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.

Page sixty-eight THE ANNUAL Q 'cfirifg " 4175, ..--'15 , ,laf STUDIES IN HOME MILLINERY 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 small woman. To reproduce Figure No. 3, take a small basket, remove the handles and bottom, starch an old lace curtain, when it becomes quite stiff 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. THE ANNUAL Page sixty-nine A NIGHTMARE. Last night as I lay sleeping, I had a vision queer, That made me glad English exams come only twice each year. I thought I sat, gloomy and blue, with- in the English room, Waiting in awe, while on the board was written fast my doom. "April twenty, nineteen ten," I wrote in my theme book, ' Then dropped my pen as at the board I chanced to take a look. For there, in rambling letters, that made my poor head ache, Was written, "Answer fully! Be sure there's no. mistake.

According to n popular poet, all a woman Wants is love. "All she desires is love. you sayl' That shows how much you know, She wants to see the matinee, And to the circus go, She wants a handsome diamond ring, She wants a rope of pearls, She wants a poodle on a stringg She wants some extra curlsg She wants a bonnet twice a year, 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, To go out calling in. She wants the Earth, the Milky Way, And all the stars aboveg And yet you have the nerve to say, That all she wants is love! Mr. Siegler-"Do you understand THE TRAGICAL END OF 1910.

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 President, JOHN GRANT NEWMAN, D. D. " Dean, MARY ALMA SAWYER. Litt.

THE RIKE-KUMLER Co DAYTON, oH1o Page one hundred and forty THE ANNUAL BUSIIICSS lVlilll'S l.6lSlll'6 ll0llfS Upon the way a man spends his time outside of business very large- ly depends his efiiciency in busi- ness. Many prominent men of large affairs are to-day making music their hobby. 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 line. Such men know that an evening spent with the PIANOLA, in the atmosphere of beautiful music, and in the home circle, is wisely spent. 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.
