D uring the Frencli and Iiuliaii wars the corps of Raiiifers, under the coniinand of Major Rol)ert Rogers, rendered iiivaliiable aid to tlie Britisli and Provincial armies. They were the most formidable body of men ever employed in partisan warfare in this country Their services w’ere performed in the vicinity of Lakes Georife and Champlain, amid wild lonely forests and al- most inaccessible mountains, in which Indians always lurked Tlieir duty was to ascertain the force and position of tlie enemy, to capture prison- ers, to sack and burn houses and l)arns, and seize cattle, to discover places of ambush, to precede and clear the way for the regular army, and lastly, to lijiht the Indian accordinj ; to his own method of warfare. Braddock’s defeat plainly showed that there was need of a body of men, able to tijiht tlie Indian on his own { round, and in his own manner, and thorouiihly acquainted witli the wilderness between the frontier settlements of New Eiiiiland and Can- ada For this purpose the Britisli reirnlar ‘was of no value, whatever, and the ordinary provincial of not much more Therefore the Ran,i er was a necessity. He was a man of hardy, endurinu: constitution, inui ' cd to hardships and i)rivations, capable of making lonsi, tiresome marches summer or winter, day or nijiht, subsistin r on a scanty supply of food, and requiring no shelter but the forest after alomr, wearisome march. • Robert Ro«;ers was the commander of the Rantfers, and although much was to be desired in his character, he was beyond reproach as a com- mander in partisan warfare His power of endur- ance, resoluteness, coolness, readiness of resource in extremities, dariny:, and utter fearlessness, made his services invaluable to his country, and his name, a name of terror to his French and Indian foes. He was born in 1727 at Londonderry, New Hampshire, then a frontier settlement surrounded by forests. He received a limited education as regards book-learninj;. but sained a wider and more practical knowleds ' c on his father’s farm, and in exploring and hunting in the neighboring wilderness between the French and English settle- ments. He was passionately fond of forest life, and spent his time tracing streams to their sources, finding out the carrying places between them, and unconsciously fitting himself for his future work, by acquiring a thorough knowledge of that terri- tory in which he was later to show his sterling qualities. Rogers first took part in the French and Indian wars in September, 17r 5, when as Captain of a company of Rangers, he proceeded against Crown Point, under the command of General William Johnson. Later he was appointed Major of the whole corps of Rangers. In September, 17.711, Rogers with a band of Rangers was sent to destroy the Indian village of St. Francis. These Indians had been a terror for the century past to the inhabitants of the New England frontier settlements, burning their houses and barns, killing men, women and children and carrying away others into a horrible captivity .Amherst had resolved to wipe out this nest of hornets, and had intrusted this duty to the invinc- ible Rogers Two days after Rogers had set out on this expedition, he was informed by an Indian that a force of four hundred French and Indians had found his boats hidden in the forest, and that half that force was pursuing him He immediately determined upon the bold plan of outmarching his pursuers, and reaching St. Fi ' ancis before them, returning by way of the Connecticut. For nine hal’d, weary days he and his Rangers resolutely toiled through thickets and swamps, having no thought but to attain their journey’s end and ac- complish their purpose. On the evening of the ninth day Rogers climbed a tree and saw the village three miles distant The next morning he attacked it, unaware of his approach and killed most of the warriors, and sacked and burned the village. ' I’his done, he hastened away, as a body of French and Indians were in close pursuit His supplies gave out before he reached the Connecticut River, and when he arrived at the place where some were to have been sent, part of the Rangers gave up to desiiair to find no provisions awaiting them. 2 THE AUTHENTIC. Rogers after a ditlicult journey clown the river, sueceetled in reaeliing Cliarlestown or Number Four, from wliich place he sent a supply of provis- ions to his men, some of wliom iiad died of starva- tion and exliaustion Such was one of tlie expeditions wliich Rogers and his Rangers were called upon to undertake, nor did they ever hesitate to execute their com- mands. They served tlirougliout tlie war. . t its close, R ogers went to England wliere lie spent the rest of his life. Had lie not lieeii suspected of lieiiig hostile to tlie American cause, he miglit liave rendered valuable services to his country in tlie . merican Revolution, as did many of the Rangers, so ably titted for that duty by tlieir early training.

T he Settlement idea, that of living and working in the very midst of tlie poor and unfortunate classes, was tirst conceived by educated Eng- lish clergymen, who went to live among and lielp tlie poor of London in the latter part of the nine- teenth century. Tliree especially were connected witli this work, tlie Rev. .lolin Richard Green, liis- torian of the English people. Rev S A Barnett and Edward Denison, a wealthy Oxford student, who hired a lodging amid tlie poor jieople and worked among tliem, lecturing on tlie suliject of religion, and bettering tlieir conditions in every way lie could, even carrying tlie needs and wants to Farlianient. Tlie idea of a College Settlement in this country was lirst discussed by Smith College students in 1887, and tlie result of tlieir discussions and plans was the founding of the lirst College Settlement here in 1889, the New York Settlement. Ten years later there were nearly one hundred in ditfereiit parts of the country. Tlie object of the College Settlement is to extend democracy socially, that the poor and ignorant foreigners in our large cities, working under hard conditions and enjoying little happiness, may he united in one common bond of fellowship and sympathy ; to share their joys and sorrows by liv- ing in close touch witli them ; to educate them ; teach them how to live; in short, to better their conditions in every possible way Tlie College Settlements . ssociation, supported by many of our women’s colleges, has charge of three settlements, tlie New A " ork Settlement, tlie St. Mary St Settlement in Philadelphia and the Denison House in Boston on Tyler St. The Denison House was started in 1892. The community then consisted of many . merican and Irisli families, but most of them have since moved away and their jilaces have been taken by Syrians, Greeks and Italians. .Some are well educated in their native land and come liere to seek lietter educational O])portunities, but are compelled to live and work with the lower classes by reason of their poverty. The great majority, however, are igno- rant and tit for unskilled labor only. Tliey surely can see little of the bright and liappy side of . nierican life. Tlieir homes are bare, unattractive and cheerless and tlieir surroundings are the same. Is it, tlien, to be wondered at that their children care little for their homes, and use the streets as their common playground? They cannot enter Denison house, with the ever ready welcome of the residents, with its fresh and simple muslin curtains, neat hardwood floors, casts and reproductions of masterpieces hung about on the walls, plants and flowers here and there, without wishing their own homes to be as beautiful and artistic, yet simple and homelike as this. The residents are always willing to entertain and help them, and as their needs are mainly educa- tional, many classes in ditl ' erent subjects are held. From eight hundred to one thousand have lessons there every week They are taught cooking, serv- ing and carpentry, besides other useful subjects; and many of the older ones, who do not have the advantages of a public school dui’ing the day, are taught English. Numerous clubs are also formed in connection with the house. In summer, many who otherwise would have to be conlined in hot and dingy tenement houses are enabled to go to the countrj’, seashore, or woods, and there, for a week or ten days, to enjoy the freedom and happiness of such a life. Another very important feature in eonnection with the Denison House is the vacation School. Last year there were classes in nature study, cook- ing, serving, carpentry and primary and kindergar- ten gi’ades. Nature study was divided into three parts, class room, field and garden work. Excur- sions into the country to illustrate what they had learned in class were a great help and delight to them, and they became so interested that tiiey were eager to work before and after school hours. This settlement in Boston is only one of many that accomplish such a noble and useful work in a THE AUTHENTIC 3 coninuinity. Jane Adams of Hull House, Chica fo, who has worked iu the settlements for nearly fif- teen years, says, in regard to whether or not it pays: “You ask me if it has paid. We may as well challenge life itself. We might as well go to the priests over here at tlie cathedral and point out to them that they have not redeemed the people who live in every direction around them ; that in spite of their preaching and service, and tlie example of their pure lives, all manner of sin still exists in their neigliborhood and among the very people who are reached by them. They do not think their work has been a failure. They have done some good. They are doing good every day. The people here are better. They are getting better every day. They will grow bet- ter to the end ” Fi!. xcks Sticvuns. THE WOMAN’S COLLEGE OF THE FUTURE. sucoxi) noxou. O NE of the most important features of our educational progress in the past twenty- five years is the tendency toward indus- trial education. The ability to do things is being added to the mere book-knowledge which has so long characterized educational work. The methods of education used iu civilizing the Indian, and those which are now being used .so successfully by Booker T. Washington in Tuskegee Institute have caused prominent educa- tors to think that they rest upon sound educational principles. This recognition of the need of practical edu- cation is shown in the introduction of manual training into public schools, in the rise of business schools and schools of applied science. It is also shown in Germany where the growing practical nature of the people not only has caused them to consider the classical languages unessential in training for a professional career, but has placed their technical schools on a level with their uni- versities. The movement toward indnstrial education, although but recently begun, has been attended with such success that we may speak with some certainty of its future development. We believe that these new ideas of education will be applied with equal success in our colleges for women. Here the daily associations with teachers of refinement and culture, the influences pervading the institutions, and, in fact, the whole environment of the students, have done much toward developing womanliness of character and toward influencing their graduates to higher stand- ards of life; but their training is mainly theoret- ical. Their broad courses of study develop more the reasoning faculties and give the graduate a general education rather than fit her for some special field of work. Then, when the graduate is thrown upon h er own resources, she often finds herself unsuited for the practical affairs of the world. Often her only opening is teaching, and many do not possess the qualities necessary for the making of a successful teacher, while to one not interested in such work it is mere drudgery and of no benefit to either the teacher or her pupils. Miss Susan Anthony has made the statement that fifty years ago, in America, no occupations were open to women except cooking, sewing, teaching and factory w ' ork. Even now ' many young women in choosing a profession, consider teaching, nursing, bookkeeping, stenography and typewriting about the only occupations open to them. How’ever, the International Congress of Women, held in London in 1000, has shown that many women have found a profitable business in such handicrafts as jewelry, carving, book-binding, etc., while others have been successful as lawyers, doctors, chemists, journalists, architects, agricul- turists and horticulturists. Ill southern California some of the most suc- cessful horticulturists are women, while in other parts of the country and in England, landscape gardening has proved both a delightful and profit- able occupation. But it is the lack of schools that will prepare young women for such work that has kept them from these occupations. This new movement in education w ' ill open up many of these occupations by founding colleges for W ' omen similar to the technical schools for men In these young women will receive not only instruction in such studies as are necessary for a liberal education, but they will receive a specific technical training. They w’ill not only study the principles of science governing some special field of work, but they will practise the application of these principles to their profession Yet, the chief aim of such a college will he education, and the principles studied will be with the purpose of de- veloping the mind, of exercising the pow ' ers, and of training the faculties of the student. Such instruction will result in a combination of both theoretical .and practical knowledge, and will give 4 THE AUTHENTIC. to the world j ' ouiig women titted for a useful, iutelligent life, prolicieut in an occupation by means of which tliey can lie independent of otliers, or to wlucli tliey can turn in time of adversity. Already we liave an institution of lids type in Simmons College, Boston. Here young women may prepare for sncli positions as nurse, matron, private secretary, lilirarian or liorticnltnrist. Tliat young women are looking for just sucli a scliool as tliis is sliown liy its ever-increasing nnm- ber of students and liy its rapid growtli Tlie success witli wliicli tliese princiiiles of education liave met, is tcaciiing us tliat true educa- tion sliould develop industrial elHeiency as well as moral ami intellectual power, and with this educa- tion will come that fuller develoinnent which will make both man and woman more able to take part in the making of a better and happier world. Anmk ' rilOUNTON. CLASS PROPHECY. F ob more than a year now, the attention of the whole world has been directed to that nation, which np to this time has been consiilered of little importance, but has shown most wonderful ability, in holding at bay for many months the great power of Russia. Such wonderful foresight as the .lapanese have shown in prepai ' ing for this war is the admiration and wonder of military men the world over. From our interest in the war we have naturally become interested in everything relating to this in- genious people, who have in so short a time shown that they are to be among the great powers of the woi ' ld. This may explain why, when ])assing through Boylstou Street a few days ago, I was attracted by a beautitul .Tapanese shop-window. .Vs I stood gazing at the vases of curious workmanship and tapestries with gold and silver embroideries, it oc- curred to me tliat I might learn more about these interesting people. I found inside a very courteous and intelligent .Japanese gentleman, who was wil- ling to satisfy my curiosity in regard to the many beautiful and Ingeniously wrought objects of interest. Naturally our conversation turned to the war and J asked him if he could give me any idea as to the secret of the wonderful success of the .Taininese. “Certainly, I can,” he answered, “though few of your countrymen know anything about the mar- vellous Invention by which my peojile have been able to foresee the purpose and movements of the enemy and thus make preparations for this war.” Drawing aside a curtain in the rear of the shop he invited me to step in and insjiect this machine by means of which a vast amount of useful knowl- edge had been gained. “This,” he says, “is the (jerinc.ashakdurimah- yah. " This instrument I found resembled externally the old fashioned stereoscope, but was connected by electrical wires to a wonderful globe which had many needles and registering cards. But the most wonderful thing about this globe was the time question, unlike anything I have ever heard of. By a wonderful combination of the time and place indicators he said that one was able to see what a person or a people at a given place would be doing at a given time in the future, and thus I saw how the .Japanese had been able years ago, to foresee the movements of the liusslans and thus make ready for this war. “But,” said I, “will this machine work here now?” “Certainly,” said he, “without doubt.” “.Vnd could I have the use of it for a few minutes?” “Most certainly.” I ' ’inding that the terms were not beyond reach of my purse I engaged his services for a brief period. When he asked me at just what point on the surface of the globe he would place the needle I at lirst thought I would say Washington, but upon second thought it occurred to me that I miuht test the instrument nearer home and I said, “Set it at the Stoneham High School.” This I found, with a little information from me, he was soon able to do, even to the point of getting Itoom 13 of that building. He then asked me at what date he should set the indicator. “Why UtO.o,” I said. “llK). ' )!”he repeats, “but sir, onr instrument can give any date within one hundred years.” “Great Scott!” said I, “will this instrument tell me what these peoi)le in Itooin 13 are to be doing at any date?” “Certainly, Sir,” said he. “Very well, then give us I ' .H.T.” Soon the machine was in motion. Sealed at a little table, my .Japanese friend operating at the globe, such a panorama was unfolded before my astonished eyes as I can well believe I sh.all never again obseia e. To give yon some idea of the way in which the THE AUTHENTIC. 5 various views were presented to me, I may say it was like tlie kinetescope views only much more distant and not always moving. I made a note of the views that I saw wh ich I will endeavor to give you. After getting my eyes adjusted to the machine I found that I was in a strange place and by var- ious signs as I seemed to he passing through the street I knew that it must be tliat I was in the Philippines, and this was no other than the scene of Dewey’s victory, Manila. The city was in gala attire, some great event evidently was about to take place. I seemed to move with the throng until I came to a magnificent building and I seemed to enter. It was only too plain that this was the inauguration of a governor. I waited and I hardly could believe my eyes that the person on whom all eyes rested, the governor, was no other than my classmate, LESTER TARBETT, a man of magnifi- cent and portly bearing. It was evident that his popularity, as well as his size, was immense. I followed the throng and later found myself at, what in Washington would be called the Inaug- ural Ball, and there to my amazement I found the master of ceremonies and the centre of an admiring throng of women was — would you believe it? — ERXEST PATCH. His swallow-tail and white kid gloves were something which we had never seen him sporting, but in those, as well as with the bevy of ladies, he was very much at home. .Just as we seemed to be leaving this foreign city a sign board caught my eye. It was the familiar barber’s pole and an equally familiar name, GEORGE RUSSELL MAXN. Could it be so? I stood for a minute wondering if it could be my old friend, when I saw a little child in front of the door crying, and sure enough it was “Turk” who came and picked up the little urchin and quenched his tears with kisses. As this scene vanished I could see in the dis- tance a large field. .Vs the view became more dis- tinct I could see tents and various wagons indicat- ing that a circus was there. Through an open tent flap I saw the cages of the menagerie In a distant corner was a crowd of people following a guide. As I looked they stopped before a cage containing some animal, but as 1 looked closer I noticed this placard ; — “Wild Max, C.uiOHT IX TiiK .Tuxolks OK riiK Mi-yriiOPOLriAX Pauk Sysi ' km ok Eastkux Mass.” Well, this was getting interesting and quite near home, so I fixed my eyes more intently upon this cage When the wild man lifted his head I saw, — well you know “Bob” CONNORS as well as I do, — and there he was as large as life. The manager of this show was Mme. Dudevont in name, but in reality was BERTH.V GERTRUDE WALKER. Recovering from this lively scene I found my- self in the midst of a crowded city. This I recog- nized immediately as Boston, for there was the Common and the Subway Station. A Salvation .Vrmy lass was busily talking with some dirty-faced Italian newsboys, and something about the girl attracted my attention. I nearly fainted and had to call for water for there was: — well, I always expected FR.VNCES would do better than that But what I saw next was pretty near the limit There out in the middle of the street was “Hick” MELLETT sweeping up garbage. He must have worked out in the rain quite a lot for his hair was pretty rusty. We always expected great things from H.VRRY in the musical line, as he was con- sidered, by himself, authority on anything musical, hut here he was wielding a broom instead of a baton. As this scene vanished there gradually came into view what I took to be Broadway, — Saugus .V fifteen or twenty story building loomed up before me, wholly occupied by the firm of HINCHCLIFFE , McGovern. This I knew from the immense signs blazing from every story. .V retail store equal in size to a half dozen of .Iordan, Marsh Co’s I saw no doors. I seemed to advance with the crowd. Among the many strangers I recog- nized one, a hustling, rustling, bustling woman, here, there, everywhere and back again in an in- stant: — yes it was our classmate FLOR.V . NNIE THtHlNTON. “Well ten years works wonders in the 20tii Century,” thought I. I now saw that it was bargain day. A placard ; “Great Assortment of Babies in Basement,” attracted my attention. Moving in that direction, at my left in the Ribbon department was “Mid” GREEN. Here she was fairly buried under an avalanche of her favorite red and yellow ribbons. But to the basement Babies? I should say. It was the greatest sale you ever saw. Cradles? No Incubators by the hundreds. “BLONDES” at one counter “BRU- NETTES” at another Black and white, and all the scrambling, pulling and pushing that one sees on bargain day now. Flere was a card; — “$3.10 and Carriage Thrown in ” Farther on prices ran down to “Three for a Quarter,” evidently a shop- worn lot. This flourishing department was in charge of ALONZO P.VRKS. One more familiar face in this establishment It was that of ST.VCEY 6 THE AUTHENTIC. FINNEGAN selling shoestrings on the installment plan, with pink stamps on Tuesdays. The ne.xt scene took me to one of the snl)nrhs of New York. Far in the distance an automobile was approaching. As it drew nearer I conld see white ribbons flying everywhere and old shoes dangling on behind. wedding, sure enough,” thought I. “I wonder who it is?” Well, if I am not greatly mistaken, as one is liable to be at such a rapid glance, there in the back seat was M.VRY STEVENS and,— THOMAS McFAIlTLAND. With J.VNE LEWIS for chatleur, as they wheeled out of sight I wondered how the .Judge came to give his consent. And now I seemed to have dropped down into some educational estaldishment. A sleepy looking set of men were evidently supposed to be listening to the learned professor, who, though now with white hair, was DIOGENES ARISTOIMIENES ALCIBIADES GRANT, D. D., L. L. D., ,T. C. 1). The only person who was wide awake was a re- porter seated at a table, PE.VRL VIN ' I ' ON. But the most familiar scene that the .Tap showed me was in onr old High School, somewhat the worse for wear and somewhat battered. 1 saw in the office, where we have been in the habit of ■seeing Mr. Emerson seated, EDWARD BRADY, “(’hick” was bald headed, with spectacles on his nose. Can you imagine “Chick” rushing a fresh- man to the door and tell him not to come back until he had seen the committee? As the dill’erent rooms came into view, who should we find washing dishes in the lunch room but MABEL BANKS WILSON, the very girl we had supposed would astonish the world in Grand Opera. Evidently she became so attached to the teachers during her High School course that she never could leave them . In the gymnasium, (a much needed addition presented to the town l)y the Class of ’0.5) I saw VIOLET DEL.VNO giving a lesson in physical culture, instructing the young ladies how, by phy- sical means if necessary, to have a ready command of. and how to handle unruly husbands. From appearances, her training in the play had helped her greatly, and may she have great success in this new vocation. By various signs it appeared that Domestic Science was the principal thing now taught. (I couldn’t help thinking how much better tliis was than French and German, for in this case the girls would l)e likely to do all the studying.) This de- partment was in charge of .lULI.V DI.MOCK, who, by diagrams on the board I saw was giving a lesson on the maloderous subject of sewerage. Lying upon a desk I noticed a huge volume upon “The Life and Times of Russell Ervin,” a second Andrew Carnegie who, instead of founding libraries, founded asylums for spavined athletes. The author’s name looked quite familiar, being LOTTIE PARKER HUTCHINS’ scientific mind must have taken a queer turn, for the next scene showed him running a macaroni factory on the side of Mt. Vesuvius. Not seeing any boilers around I tried to see how he got all his hot air. Well, I found that it was com- ing out of immense pipes that went into the side of the mountain. “Hutch” was prol)ably still on the hunt for a girl when his money ran short and this is where he happened to settle. He probably wasn’t very lonesome, for I no- ticed BERTHA HINCHCLIFFE and DANIEL POORE i)asting labels on “Hutch’s” macaroni boxes. Dan’s tongue looked as bu.sy as ever, but just now, instead of relating that little experience with the C C. C , he was lapping labels. From sunny Italy to icy Greenland was a cinch for this machine, for I was now looking at a great field of snow. Far in the distance I could see three men sitting in the shade of a pole, evidently the North Pole, fauiiing themselves and eating ice cream. From pictures in magazines I knew that one of these men was Lieutenant Peary, and the others, well, they were a little more familiar, as they were CHAREIE NEWHALL and CARL SY- MONDS. “Nul)y” had probaf)ly got frozen out some nice line evening and had taken Carl along with him to pacify him in Ids moments of grief. Things began to melt and soon I was in the Bowery, New York. Coming along the street I noticed a nice, large, plump girl with a basket over her arm. I saw that she was selling hair firushes, which reminded me of a little incident in the life of one of my classmates who, I believe on one occasion got all she wanted of a hair brush, and perhaps a little more too — and lo, this was Sue ROLLINS herself, who was now peddling brushes for a living. A click of the machine and I thought I was in Patch’s laboratory, for it resembled that establish- ment greatly, but a big signboard soon put me wise. This is how it read : — “Ai.r. Sours oi’T.viN i icn Monky Fitmig.m kd Hkuk.” ,I()U D. Rockkfku.ki!, Founder. Tiiom. s Russki.l Svmmks, Pres. Eihki. .losKPinxi? DnuKKU, Sec. They probably started in this business with the money presented them in the play, but Ethel’s n.ame is still DURFEE, as we see by the sign. THE AUTHENTIC. 7 Again the little instrument took me to Stone- ham and to the Enterprise Office, wliicli liadn’t clianged at all in ten years. Here was HOUSTON setting type, looking full forty years older than to- day, trying to win bread no doubt for Editor Lewis’ seventeen children, as I saw by actual count. We always thought that Sid PATCHETT was going to be some great mechanical engineer, at least he thought so, as he is always blowing about that automobile he is to make, but what 1 now saw changed my mind completely, for here he was in a seven by nine room, apparently in Germany, mak- ing the toy known as Jack-in-the-Box. I watched him for some time and as he tinished each one and tried it, pushing the wire that held the cover down, as Jack bobbed up Sid’s smile was something remarkable. And those of us tliat know that laugh can imagine what followed. And now with a sliglit explosive noise and a click or two, the little Japanese machine stopped I could hardly believe my senses that I was in Bos- ton and that it was 1J05. I must have looked queer, for my Japanese operator was laughing. I had seen so much and so thoroughly believed these prophetic visions that I offered him my last cent, willing to walk back to Stoneham, but he would only take his regular fee and I left him with the assurance that I hoped tlie Japs would whip the Russians, and when peace was declared, to cele- brate the event, the Class of 1905, Stoneham High School would hold a reunion on the schoolhouse steps, each with a tremendous horn and that ; — “Such a toot as they would blow. Would sure be heard in Tokio.” Roy . . Ho ' HY, ’05. CLASS HISTORY. j “Lulled in the countless chambers of the brain. Our thoughts are linked by many a hidden chain. Awake but one, and lo! what myriads rise! Each stamps its image as the other Hies.” T he difficulty in writing this history has not been in the invention of material, but in the rejection of it. If I should not follow strictly to the chronological order of events, attribute it to the interest of the theme rather than to any fault of mine. There is much to be said, but time forbids me to speak of the various incidents which crowd the recollection, and I trust that no individual will consider his own peculiar circumstances overlooked in the general nature of my remarks. We are sorry it is all over : everyone is sorry to say goodbye, to say goodbye to our schooldays. And it has all seemed so short — as short as the few sad — yes, they are sad! — moments before this merry play has closed. Why, it was only a week ago — in feeling — since we were verdant Freshmen. Just a week ago in feeling, in reality four years. Four years out of our life ; four years between fourteen and eighteen ; the best four years that we may ever know — and they have gone ! How royally we have spent them, like millionaires of time, in song and play and happiness, and just enough study to keep ns salted ! Well ! we will go and the halls will know us no more; but we will always be a part of onr school and onr school will always be a pai’t of us. We shall never forget. Still we are sorry, very sorry ! The ancient records show that we began onr course in what is now the Dean School under one of the best and dearest teachers we have yet had — Miss Hadley. We were at once instructed by Mr. Emerson to be careful in the use of the paper, that we were not to throw paper away unless it were written on both sides. The next day Mr. Emerson came before the class and announced that in spite of his admonitions he had found three sheets of paper in the waste basket but little used. On two of the sheets was the name of Russell Symmes, and on the other was Roy Hovey. Result : Symmes and Hovey in disfavor. The records do not show much activity during the Freshman year, though we carried off nearly all the honors on the athletic field. The first year was one of instruction and initi- ation. Various advices were offered by Mr Emer- son, but even thougli the remarks were of a general nature, yet there are reasons to believe that they were of a particular application Why did Mr. Emerson look over the heads of the rest of ns at onr lusty friend Mr. Hovey and say, “Avoid argu- ments with girls. In spinning yarns among silks and satins aman is sure to be worsted and twisted. Then when he is worsted and twisted he is sure to be wound up.” Though banded by a bond of common brother- hood, we have our particular friends. The remem- bered joys of onr Sophomore year are never past ; they are ever present. It was during the early part of this year that the famous “Wire Gang” was formed with Mr. H. II. Drown, gentleman, as president. On Hallf)ween niglit the class held its first so- 8 THE AUTHENTIC. cial in Patch’s barn. “Diji” Reynolds’ new suit of clotlies became a non-suit as a result of someone throwing a plate of ice cream at him. About a week later the “Wire Gang” went down to a house on Chestnut street, where the Freshman class of ’0(1 was holding a class social. One of the gang took a cake from a young lady who was going to the social and divided it among the fellows. The day after this social the gang came to school each wearing a little brass l)ell which had been removed from a pair of reins found outside the house in which the social had been held. The tinkling of the hells disturbed the French teacher so much that she reported the atl ' air to Mr. Emerson. The fellows were called into the otiice, but the door is closed on what was said there. The president of the class received a bill claiming damages for a broken window and tiie reins destroyed. After the damages were paid, Ed Rrady, who collected the money, had enough left after the payment to buy candy, peanuts and two tickets to the old Howard. The nest place visited by the “Wire Gang” was Barton’s, on North street, where the class of ’04 was holding a social Two of the fellows got into the pantry and passed out pie and cake to the gang outside, but were unable to find the ice cream. The gang waited in the shadows for a particular member of ’04 who was to come at nine o’clock. The unfortunate fellow was seized and painted w’ith iodine. He got away before the artists were finished and called the ’04 crowd to his aid. Cross- country running was in order. ' I ' he gang escaped. The class held its first house social at the home of Miss Bertha Walker. The initiation of Hickory Mellett into the “Wire Gang” is the ne.xt subject in the review of these turbulent times “Hick” wore mism.ated shoes and antiqu.ated clothing. He was made to ride in a little two-wheeled cart, to sing songs and to go through the manual of arms with an old broom — a ludicrous scene as I look back over the review. Raising the emblem of the secret society on the flag pole at the school capped this series of pranks, and shortly after this, the name of Sam Drown, president and leader of this gang, was dropped from the school roll. Poor Sam, he was attacked with hay-fever and was eaten by a horse as he was standing near Sanborn’s shoe store, and we have not heard from him since. The gang was broken up and the actors have passed by the boards into other plays. It is with many regrets that I look back over these bright scenes and think of the fellows who were with us then but who do not appear here today. Jlistakes have been made and opportunities have been lost and are never to be regained. Had they but taken the advice of Mr. Emerson when they were on the wrong road they might have won. Tiiere are lights and shadows in every history, but shadows in our lives cause oppression, and many things are better left unsaid. The records contain many proofs of an ingenious facetionsness. Our edu- cation was not always done soberly, I assure you. Ambition had, at that time, exercised but little in- fluence and pride, sustained but few disappoint- ments. Our temper was not embittered by the unexpected, nor was our exertiem checked by nn- coiuiuerable competition. Animated by the glor- ious promise of the future we cast off all care and delighted to dwell upon the glittering scene of expectation The summer vacation passed quickly and we became the junior class We began the study of Geology. We used to think that it was time elaborately thrown away, but now I see that we were singularly unapprecia- tive. We had many happy times searching for geological specimens. It was on one of these en- joyable trips that Stacy Finnegan lost her footing and slid to the bottom of a hill. We went to the .Vgassiz Museum at Harvard A pretty little inci- dent happened while we were there “Dick” Ervin and a young lady of the ’04 class managed to sepa- rate themselves from the rest of ns and went into the little chapel where this part of their conversa- tion was overlieard “Dick” was asking, “Wiiat makes a man. when he is engaged, give a girl a diamond ring?” “Why, the girl, of course,” re- plied tiie little maid. We went to the theatre, but some of the girls didn’t like the play because they thought the dinner scene was a little course. We began to make flowers in March to be used in the decorations for ’04. We held many flower parties but the one at Clerk Green’s on High street is of particul ar interest. Ed Brady believing that Mr. Green had cider in the house, slipped into the cellar when none of ns were lookimj:. After using a box of matches, Ed. struck upon what he sup- posed to be a keg of cider He shouldered the keg and went out into the yard He put the keg down on a saw-horse, got a glass, filled if, and took a long lingering drink; he found it to be the sourest vinegar ever made “Chick” shoiddered the keg and put it back where he found it. .Vfter the social given by the Misses Stevens, a joint social of the classes of ’04 and ’0 " was held at THE AUTHENTIC. 9 Defcrrari’s Hall in Melrose This was the lirst of its kind ever held and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the occasion. Many of the students in the Astronomy class entered the study with hand and heart — with em- phasis on the heart. The rule of opposites was in vogue, to be sure, as was evidenced in the indepen- dent star-watching of .Vlonzo P. and Stacy F. We have arrived at the close of our junior year. It was at this time that we learned of the resignation of Miss Bingham. Deep enshrined in our recollection rises the hallowed time when the principles of Science were marshalled before ns with rare ability by that sweet lady. Whatever words this pen may form in onr appreciation of Miss Bingham’s teaching, expresses but weakly onr affection for onr beloved teacher. We are young, our words are few, but onr truths are great and there is no need of costuming the truth, for social effect, that we deai’ly love Miss Bingham, partly for her patience towards ns, partly for her gentle character, but chiefly just for herself. When we returned in September we were grave old Seniors. There was a change in teachers. Miss Turner succeeding Miss Bingham, and Miss Sherman succeeding Miss Miner in the Freshman divisions. We began tlie study of chemistry. The class was divided into two divisions for laboratory work. It is of Div II that I wish to tell yon. Among the early experiments in chemistry is that of generating hydrogen. Under tlie directions for generating this gas, there is printed in large, heavy type, “Keep all flames away from generator ” Now “Dick” Ervin, being of an inquiring nature, wanted to find out what would happen if a flame were brought near to the glass generator. So, by- way of friendly approach to his investigation, he lighted a match and thrust it into the month of the generator, and immediately there was a loud explo- sion. The place where the generator was re- mained — that’s all. Mr Emerson became so accus- tomed to hearing such explosions that he used to settle hack in his chair and with a knowing smile say, “.Vnother rebel killed.” The first class social of onr senior year was held at the home of Stacy Finnegan. It was voted that the fellows should pay for the ice cream. When the hour for the social arrived, there came near being an arithmetical perplexity, as only eight fellows showed up. Early in the year the girls formed a secret society called S. G. D. C., and held a successful so- cial in Bed Men’s Hall. At the class social in Bed Men’s Hall on Thanksgiving eve, Mr. Arad Gerry entertained ns with orations and readings, to the delight of every- one — save Arad. Yon are all acquainted with the fact that two of our number have even honors for first place. There is an amusing incident which shows the earnestness and application of these two young ladies. One morning, just before tiie examination season, there were written on tiie blackboard of onr room these words: — “Chemistry Division please bring pens ” This instruction had been put on the board the afternoon before by Dave Grant, simply as a joke. The girls, of course, knew noth- ing of this and were trembling with excitement when they saw tiie unexpected handwriting on the wall. The twins and .lane Lewis began to study with intense application at once. They took their books up to tiie morning exercises and devoted themselves to their chemistry. Dave Grant and the rest who knew of the att’air held their faces with their hands to keep from bursting with langli- ter. When the recitation hour came and the joke was found out, the three dear girls kissed and em- braced each other and sank into a deep slumber. In the recent Prize Drill Charles Newhall won a medal for the third successive time. Behearsals were begun in March for the play “Placer Gold,” which was produced May 12. Hovey and Newhall, as the two Irish farm hands, created great amusement. .Tune 8 the Class Supper was held at the Hotel Thorndike, Boston. The evening was spent in song and laughter. The pledge of perpetual broth- erhood being made we returned home. . s an annalist I have completed my work and onr looking backward is finished. The prophet will carry yon into the future, and I hope the pleas- ures in looking forward will be as pleasant as those of retrospection. What I said in the beginning I repeat in the end, we are all sorry that the merry play has closed tV’e have profited and we are grateful to yon for what you have done to give ns these benefits. I hope I have hurt no one’s feelings in what I have said in this writing. If 1 have, attribute it to the clumsiness of my pen for there is no malice here. Tliey are not aimed “to come home to men’s business and bosoins,” they are but ti ' ifles light as air, but trifles make the sum of human things It is not within the province of the Historian to say more.

Many of the High School members regret that it could not be placed in the High School courses. We hope to see the time when Stoneham shall have so flourished as to be able to set up manual training and a gymnasium in the High School. However, we are none the less thankful for the privileges we now enjoy. J M ' e would like very much to increase our sub- scription list.

It has practically been started anew. A new constitution and by-laws have been made ; the membership in- creased to the limit, sixteen ; and a regular order of debates started, one being held every two weeks. Although almost all the members are beginners, the results are much better than could be expected and show a great amount of earnest study and labor on the pai ' t of the debaters. In addition to the formal debates in which only four members take part, a number of general de- bates have been held. As a great deal of freedom has been allowed in these, they are consequently very warm and often amusing. The society has also taken up the study of Parliamentary law under the supervision of Mr. Emerson. The officers of the society are as follows : Primarius, C. J. Emerson. President, Wm. McHale. Vice Pres., Joseph Hoey. Treasurer, Wm H. Mni ' phy. Secretary, AA’alter Houston. Board of Directors, Ed. Hines, Milton AV Dow, B. Fryer. H. H.
