tcu mt GnA. PUBLISHED BY THE SErMIOR CLASS OF Taylor Univehsitv. 1595. To BISHOP WILLIAM TAYLOR Whose honored name onr College bears, this booh is nh st respettfnllv and lovingly dedicated by its Editors. . ' Ca . Editor-in-Chief. , L,U(S c-ac x_ . Tiiisincss Manager. y( Mj iH vrL urh Associate Editors. EDITORIAL. IT is with much pleasure that we present this, the first edition of ' ' The Gem, " to the students and friends of Taylor University. While the book is limited to our own college and to our own college life and must, of necessity, be much like other college publications, yet we claim many new features for our book. Having no occasion to " roast " anj- of the Professors, and not having any serious objections to the general management of the school, the Senior Class has not published this book as a medium through which to give vent to low, degrading criticisms and venomous remarks, but it has been published because they desired something which they could keep as a memento of their college life, and which they might give to their friends that thej ' too might have some idea of what Taylor University is like. The committee, not believing that thej- were appointed for this work that they might have an opportunity to " get even " with anj ' against whom they might have some grudge, or who do not fully measure up to their idea of a perfect man, have earnestly strived to publish onlj- such things as shall be a credit to our noble class and to the College which we have chosen as our ALMA MATER. In this book will the reader find no joke that contains a stinger, no arrow that is dipped in poison, but all is pure, clean and whole- some. The history of Taylor University has been a wonderful one. Five 3-ears ago it began its existence here in Upland under the most unfavorable cir- cumstances. There were no rooms in which to hold the recitations, no dormitor} ' in which to place the students, no dining hall in which to feed them. There were less than seventy-five students, but even this small jiumber was as large as could well be accommodated. Now the building and grounds alone are valued at more than |;,i2,fKX), and the students number upwards to two hundred and fifty. As will be seen in the description of the various departments, the laboratories are well equipped, and nearlj ' all the apparatus needed for the present number of students is at hand. In addition to the school here in Upland we have what no other Methodist College in America can boast of having, nameU-, an Associate College in Japan known as " The Chnizei Gakwau. " This school is the largest Methodist School in Japan and last year two Japanese students in this school received the diplomas of Tajdor University, while three very promising young people will receive diplomas at the close of this school year. The future of the school is very bright. Under the management of Dr. T. C. Reade, our beloved president, the school has not onl} ' been brought to its present excellent condition without one single cent of debt being on it, but has also brought it to the notice of the people and has won for it many excellent friends. Manj of these are j-oung people desiring an education and next year will find them regular enrolled students of our school, these we welcome with glad hearts, others are men and women of means and their hearts have been strangely touched with sympathj ' for the many worthy 3 ' oung people who are so anxious to acquire an education, but are hindered b}- poverty-, and during this coming 3-ear man)- of them will contribute gen- erousl} ' to our school. That the desire to attend our school may be increased in the hearts of these young people, that those who have been ble.ssed with means ma}- be inspired to benevolent work, that manj- others ma}- be made our friends, we present this book. If, in reading it, you find anything in it you think of worth, treasure it up in j ' our heart and keep it. If 3 ' ou find an3fthing in it that does not full} ' meet with 3 ' our approbation, we ask 3 ' ou to carefull3- close the book and to report immediately to the Honorable Mr. Fitzsinunons, our fighting editor, who is now anxiouslv looking for some one about 3-our size.

When Dr. Reade took charge of the College it was practically without funds or students. Today we have a University equal in rank to man)- of the larger and, a few j-ears ago, more promising ones. The College is out of debt, the laboratories are being supplied with all the latest and best apparatus. All the departments are stronglv equipped with teachers of rare merit. Dr. Reade is a man of great business shrewdi ' ess and foresight, as is shown b}- his excellent management of the school; a man of great learning, as is shown b}- his excellent papers and addresses; and a man of broad sym- pathetic nature, as is shown by the help he has given and the interest he has taken in the poor bo3-s of our school. 13 PROF.

It was a happy moment for our college when Dr. Clippinger was appointed to the office of Dean to fill the vacancy male by Professor Xeal. He has in ever} ' waj- proved himself worthy of the position he occupies. He has won the respect and love of the students by his gentle manner and kind disposition, so that during the whole year, the order has been pe.fect. He is a natural leader, and tireless worker, as is shown by the manner he rallied the students to his aid in securing a telescope and building an ob ;ervatory. He is recog- nized as a teacher of great merit, and his moral character is un.stained. A fit man for this responsible po.sition. 13 ARTEMUS WARD, A. B., 1890, A.

Class Ibistov WHEN I WAS a little boy, and my feeble mind by the help of my fingers was hardly able to count that youthful Spring had seven times fled, and b} ' her gentle wings had seven times touched nie, ni}- mother with an indescribable maternal pride and joy, unveiled to me the following mystery which was connected with mj ' birth. " By the interpretation of an extraordinary phenomenon, which then occurred it was unanimously decided by the astrologists and sages that the boy would become the greatest historian of the ages. Great, not on account of his own personal merits, but because of the greatness and sublimit}- of the subject he should represent. " Although yet a boy, I commenced to fathom the depths of all the histori- cal subjects and tried to discover if anything of great importance was left for me to write. Having said farewell to my loved ones, whose presence so much I cherished, I have traveled from city to cit)-, from kingdom to king- dom, from clime to clime, and from continent to continent. I have climbed towering heights and descended into the valleys, crossed the mighty deep with its frenzied waves, and endured many hardships for the purpose of my calling, believing that the finger of kind Providence was leading me toward the great object of my existence. As the S tar of Bethlehem from the sandy deserts of Arabia, from the shady groves of Athens, and from the sacred rivers of India, for many days having guided the three wise men of the East, stood still above the manger, where the child king, the sole aim of their travel was lying, so the auspicious star of my destiu}- having led me to Taylor University, there, with smiling glance over our Halls of learning, stood still, seemingly saying that here is my destination. Then I began to realize that it was not the bloody battles between human beings, nor their most deplorable results I was to describe. Neither should I write the history of disasters and calainities, nor the rise and fall of empires. Ah no! Not anything that will lower the standard of man, the prince of all creation. But my theme is the history of a class whose golden moments of life ' s morning are spent in the most delightful halls of Taylor Universit}-. Chief among these classes which are now enjoying the advantages of our be- loved institution, is the class of ' 98. The history of the class begins with the 23 liistorj ' of our college, which after having fought and struggled fearlessly between life and death; although her downfall predicted even b} ' many of her friends, 3 ' et having retained within herself the imperishable germ of re- sistless energy, she was re-established with greater power and stability, and with better equipments at Upland. We, as a Class, have had no inhuman conflicts to boast of, neither do we glorj- in the number of canes we have broken, nor in having caused the sacred halls of our University to resound with boisterous noise. But we do heartily glory in the intellectual ability of our members, in the number of Greek and Latin roots we have grubbed up, and in the number of gigantic problems we have .solved. ThucN-dides, Aeschylus and Ouintilian were no longer old meaningless and tire.some clas.sics. ■ Calculus and others were not inaccessible heights for us. The crown of our class is adorned with the inextinguishable luminaries, which will brighten the pathwa -s of man3-, which will elevate humanit)- from its present condition to a higher plain, to a grander purpose, to a loftier conception and to a better life. No class has been, as yet, so well organized and so marvelously equipped as the class of ' 93. Its orators are the most eloquent, its declaimers are the most accomplished, its debaters the most argumentative, and its poetic and musical genius is un.surjjassed. Surel)- there is a strong magnetic power in this Cla.ss, for it not onh draws unto itself the golden eagles of the Moonev prizes, and the bank notes of the Christian Herald prizes, but also, as the needle is invariably attracted to the pole, so all that is good, noble and true is attracted to the Class of ' 98. The literary attainments of its members are wonderful, its scholarship is unexcelled, and the Christian character of its members is to be admired and esteemed. The glorious achievements and wondrous deeds of our Class attracted the attention of many distinguished young people from abroad, who disconnecting themselves from other insti- tutions, and some even for a time laying aside their high standing in profes- sional lines, came, and with great satisfaction attached themselves to our class; whose names will alwa3rs be remembered with honor and pride by their classmates. Further the liistor} ' of the Class of ' 98 is the history of the progressive, ambitious and energetic individuals conforming themselves to the rules and regulations of the institution of which the} ' are a part. Taylor University will alwa ' s acknowledge the helping hand which our class offered in the times of need, and also the Class of ' 93 will ever cherish the pleasant memories of kindnesses which it received from the authorities. Our class meetings have alwa3 ' s been the most enthusiastic and inost orderl}- of their kin:l. D.iring these meetings the class conceived the idea of publishing a Class Book, which, for the first time in the history of our institution, has been attempted. Although we met with great difficulties and discouragements, yet, by the untiring spirit and unfailing determination of its editors and by the hearty co-operation of its loyal members, all the obsta- cles and barriers have melted away, and this magnificent book is the fruit of their ardent toil and diligent effort. The Faculty and students point out the memb ers of our class by their three great characteristics, viz: Caucasian beautj ' , Herculean strength, and Socratic virtue. Also we are first in num- bers, first in intelligence, and first in ambition. Such is the illustrious record, which we leave behind. It is beyond the province of this article to foretell the possibilities of the members of the Class of ' 98. Their aspirations are loftier than the Alps and Himalayas, eternitj ' alone will be able to reveal their accomplishments. But the shining sun of our school days is approach- ing its western horizon, and not without some feeling of sorrow, do we anticipate the beautiful scenes of our Commencement Daj-, thinking that we must bid farewell to our dear old Alma Mater, to our instructors and to our fellow students. Yet happy, believing that the ever changing finger of Time, in its ceaseless covirse shall not be able to efface their memories sweet, which will alwavs be cherished b - the members of the Class of ' 98. be Senior Class Ah, we are jolly Seniors, We ' ve struggled np the wa) , And climbed the classic mountains To reach Commencement Daj ' . So we are glad and happj ' To be in the Senior Class, And know that from our studies. Somehow we got a pass. Each one of us is anxious That he do something great, And each one thinks there ' s a hero In the Class of ' 98. We feel that many movements We ' ll speedil} reverse. And bv our valiant labor. Will right the universe. But true, if earnest labor Can give a lasting name, Then some of our Seniors Will climb the hill of fame. And too, if noble condnct The truest worth can give, Then certainly our Seniors In glorious deeds will live. If depth of thought and reason Are useful in the strife, Then surely every Senior Will lead a useful life. So now we go as sailors, Upon life ' s unknown sea. We ' ll steer our vessels bravely, Whatever the wind may be. And when at last we gather, To pass through the golden gate, May we find none were unfaithful, In the Class of ' 98. Glass ' 99. iftotto.

Claes HDistor IN the prehistoric ages it was ordained that, there shouhl be a class that would cause the earth to tremble, and that class was to be the Juniors of ' 98, or the Seniors of ' 99 of Taj-Ior University. The first two years of the class passed uneventfulh- save now and then a new recruit to our ranks. And now our Junior year has passed, only too quickly, with all its varied activities and achievements; for the records of the Juniors ' show nothing but progress. We do not claim to be the largest class in the University in regard to num- bers, we are characterized by quality not qviantity. Perhaps some verdant Freshman or Sophomore has said " Oh! the Juniors, the} ' are dead, " but they have yet to learn that " still water runs deep. " We are not known by the noise we make, but raise ourselves above mere noise and show to the higher and nobler things of life. In our ranks are philosophers, nmsicians and orators; and in almost every vocation, there are tlio.se who have already laid the corner stone of true success. Although we feel assured that, in future ■ears we will be set up as examples of noble, courageous and highly educated people; for while 3-et in the morn- ing of life and somewhere between morn and noonday in our college life, we keep trudging upward toward Our Star of Hope. Historian. Ipropbec aUREIvY it was an an inspired hour when the Class of ' 99 chose for its motto " Hitch 3 ' our wagon to a star. " The full reality of its meaning, perhaps, did not then dawn on the mind of those that chose it, but it is being revealed to us that our future is like the star bedecked vault of the heavens. For as the mighty worlds are accompanied in their vast orbits by the music of the spheres, so we Juniors, in future 3 ' ears can, when wearied with ovir arduous toils and duties, seek for our far renowned musicians whose productions will take onl}- a second place to the harmonious strains of the brilliant orbs whose leadings we follow. Our eyes shall rest upon the works of our artist and architect and feel that we have been honored ever to have associated with one competent to form such imperishable monuments. What matters it if the Juniors are like the iixed stars? Their intellectual motion ma}- not be clearh ' felt, and the light of their knowledge may not be brilliant to those in the distance. So let it be, when the revolving years have passed, when the perceptions of the world have become more sensitive, when the film is removed from the eye, the classic and philosophic minds of the ' 99 ' s will be found shining as first magnitude stars and instead of being fixed and ra3dess, thej- will be found, when the telescope of unprejudiced opinion is focused upon them, advancing in the world of thought at a rate equaled by none and shining with the intense incandescent light of wisdom, truth and prudence. To us also " Reason ' s brilliant ray was lent, not to assure our doubtful way, but guide us upward to a better daj-. " And as we tread the way directed by our Star of Hope and bj- our Ambition, we shall constantly approach our ideal character and shall shed upon the path of those who follow an efful- gent light just as a beacon, and the influence of our sincere lives will eventuall} ' prove the Star that guides the Nations. Cbe Class of ' Let lands and hills their silence keep, While from the Halls of I,earning roll Shouts of praise and music sweet, Which fill to overflow the soul. The class of Ninet3 ' -nine is heard To speak with firmness and with force. And every mind and heart is stirred To noble things, and not to coarse. Oh, sa} ' not thou, that toil is vain, Or years in training thought, misspent, For somewhere, sometime greatest gain Will come to those on learning bent. The grave cannot the names erase From books unseen bj ' mortal eye. Behold! the coming ages trace Their honored work beyond the sky. We know that those whose names appear Upon the roll of Ninety-nine, Will cause the world their voice to hear. And, as their star, will brightly shine. 1900. Iftotto. Affi laborcs jucnndi. Colors.

Svtperb decorations are gorgeously draped from the tops of the windows to the center of the vaulted ceiling. The motto: " Acti labores jucundi, " forms a semi-circle over the rostrum, and flashing from the arched door-way in electric letters of Lavender and Yellow are the words, " Welcome, Pilgrims. " The sound of merry voices echoes through the corridors of the great build- ing and strains of sweet music float out on the night air. It is the last even- ing of commencement week. The occasion is a reunion of the Class of 1800. The event is one of great delight to the old classmates and friends, having been seperated for so manj years. Their joy knows no bounds as they clasp hands and exchange greetings, women meet with the kiss of girlish affection, and men, forgetting their dignity, hug each other with glee. Thus greet- ings are exchanged and the friends move promiscuousl) ' about, chattering, telling stories and relating experiences. In one corner of the room sits a reporter for the Upland ' ' World, ' ' and b}- his side a professor who has been with the University for years. The corre- spondent is collecting a few items incident to the history of each member of the Class and the professor is pointing out to him the different persons, and giving him the desired information. ' ' That short man with dark, flowing locks, blue e3 ' es and full beard, sitting there in the choir loft, the one who conducted the opening exercises, is Dr. J, O. House, A. M., Ph. D., of Chicago, Editor of the Epworth Herald, " said the professor. ' ' While in school Dr. House showed some literary ' genius and attracted much attention as a leader in Sunday School and Epworth L,eague work, and it is no surprise to his classmates to find him bearing the honor and responsibilit} of his present position. " " That man sitting just to the left of Dr. House, the one with heavy dark mustache and burnsides is Wm. Asay, D. D., superintendent of Central Alaska Mission, appointed to that place from New Jersey Conference, by Bishop Fowler four years ago. The lad} ' and gentleman in conversation near that large open window sitting in the shadow of that largest palm, are Miss Carrie Thomson, returned missionary, principal of a Young Ladies ' Seminary at Seoul, Corea, and Rev. Charles Coons, D. D., LL. D. Dean of Puget Sound Universit} ' , under whose excellent management the institution has been lifted to first rank among the schools of the west. There comes ni) ' old pupil, E. C. Dunn. It seems that he is a little late getting in this evening. Train delaj ' ed somewhere, I suppose. Excuse me one moment, please, I must give him greeting. These boys are to me almost as my own. Yes, train delayed, bridge out somewhere. Rev. Dunn is just in from the West. He has been in Colorado and Utah since 1801, and at present is pastor of Fifth Avenue Church, Denver. Rev. Dunn reports that Rev. O. W. High and famih- are in the ci ty, and are expected at the banquet shortly. The Reverend and familj- came on the same train with Rev. Dunn from Topeka, Kan. His work is in Northwest Texas, where he has served several pastorates and is now Presiding Elder of El Paso District. Do you see that tall, light complexioned gentleman standing bj ' the archwaj ' beckoning to some one in the hallway-? That man of laie years is attracting the attention of the press throughout the land. You have no doubt read of him, or per- haps have noticed his pictures in the Chicago Record, the Rev. Franklin W. Gress, D. D., of St. James M. E. Church, Chicago, successor to Rev. Robert Mclntyre, the distinguished lecturer and divine. I see to whom he was beckoning. The person has just come in and is talking to Dr. Gress — Rev. William Corder, of Wheeling, W. Va., Singing Evangelist, the greatest gospel singer since the days of Chaplain McCabe. There is Congressman Barnes shaking hands with the Dean, Barnes is a genial fellow just as good natured and smiling as ever. He is a shrewd politician and clever statesman. Have 3-ou the name of Prof. Ross Helmick, A. M., of the American Univer- sit}-? Mr. Helmick is one of the best linguists of the age. He alwaj-s seemed to possess an instinct and passion for language, and though a com- paratively young man, is recognized as peer among our ablest educators. Arthur J. Martin, who was a tutor in our school during its early history, is now President of Knoxville Business College and Shorthand Institute, also a prominent politician in that State, having served two terms in the General Assembly and been superintendent of public schools two terms. That small man yonder with smooth face and straight black hair and a pair of adjusta- ble eyeglasses resting daintily on his nose is Elsworth E. Fisher, a prominent banker and stock broker of Wall Street. Fortunately the reunion has occurred at an opportune time for our foreign workers, members of the class. Rev. B. H. McCoy, of Allahabad, India, and Miss Jennie Strohl, of Argentina, are present with us. You will hear from them before the evening passes. Geo. J. Hartman, Central Ohio Conference Evangelist and Mrs. Fay . . . . , nee Marine, are also among the reunionists tonight. Their faces look famil- iar, though slightly bearing the mark of j ' ears. What is that commotion in the corridor, I wonder? A crowd seems to be coming up the stairs. And cheering! I cannot understand it. Ah! I see.

It is the purpose of each member of Class 1901, to benefit the world by having lived in it. We intend to live as our motto slates , " Not merely for ourselves, but for others, " and, by so doing, we will be the instruments in God ' s hands of blessing mankind. The history of our cla:s shall go forth before the world without blemish. The poet has truthfully said: " Mind make.s the man, the want of it the fellow, All the rest is leather and prnnella. " We have in this class those who,se brains and talent shall astonish the most learned. Oh! glorious future! I can imagine I .see the problems which make the nation tremble. First the great minds of the congressional body wrestle with them, day after day, night after night, until weeks, months and years pass b}-; when, lo, from out the halls of Ta3 ' lor Universit}- comes a member of the Class of 1901, who is mighty to wield the sceptre and guide the Ship of State. He lends a hand and solves the difficult problem, and in place of confusion and distress, the nation is saved from disaster and proba- ble destruction, and its people at rest. Such men and women oiu- glorious country needs today, and such men and women this class .shall send forth. Wonderful changes have been wrought within the last few } ' ears and have been the means of blessing a part of humanity; but the changes which shall be brought to pass through the influence of " Class 1901 " shall be felt from East to West, and embracing alike in its tremendous sweep the fragrant savannas of the sunlit south and the eternal solitttdes of the ice-bound north. Ah! yes, I now .see where once miserv and poverty, crime and sin of every description held full sway, and now, in its place, peace, plenty and happiness reign supreme. Then I look for the agency which has brought this to pass, and I discover a host of young Americans and foremost among them, crown- ed by a halo of glory, I see a group, over whose heads are these words in- scribed in letters of tire, " Taylor University, Class 1901. " Greater things than these shall be accomplished. The genius of this class shall enter every field which thought and skill can occupy. The " Mount of Difficulty " shall be ascended. That which was impossible shall be made possible, and tlie unfathomable depths sounded, and the mysteries of science explored. We long to hail the glad triumphant day when the sayings of this prophec}- shall be fulfilled, and every man, woman and child in the world shall be blessed by the wondrous changes wrought through the " Class of I ' JOl " of Taylor Universit}-.

Yocvmi had ju.st become president of the institution. As the attendance increased it was found neces- sary to the best interests of all concerned that a new literary society be formed in addition to the one then in existence. It ' s organization received the S) ' mpathy and approval of the president, and its founders were among the strongest and best students of the college. In the name " Philalethean " the members declared themselves " Lovers of Truth. " The motto adopted b ' the new society, " iiimi Iniperio Corporis Servilio Utinnir, " was suggested bv D. ' . Yocum. It expresses the sentiment and purpose of the societ}-. The aim of this society from the beginning has been to secure mental de- velopment and culture along literar}- lines; to give its members training in public reading and speaking; and to cultivate a taste for the lofty, the beau- tiful, the true. jVIan - who have at first taken up society duties with fear and trembling have gone forth to bless mankind with strong and noble lives. In the earl}- years of its history, the societ}- had some severe trials — indeed a hard struggle for existence. At first it had no hall in which to meet, but was compelled to use a recitation room. This was unattractive compared to the well furnished hall of the older societj-, and proved a very serious hin- drance; for thus situated, the Philaletheans appeared alwa3-s at a disadvan- tage to visitors and new students. Early in 1881, the society having been deprived of the large recitation room in which it had formerh- met, was meeting in a smaller room in the college. The members were discouraged. A meeting was held to determine whether the societj ' should make any further efforts to continue its existence. Prof. Clippinger was present b} ' invitation, and he suggested that a request be made for the large recitation room which they had used and for permis- sioii to furnish it for societ} ' use. This proposition was agreed upon, the petition was granted, and the Philalethean Literar} ' Society proceeded to furnish and take possession of its new quarters. From this time it was able to compete with the older societ}-. Prosperity has ever since attended the efforts of the faithful workers. Among those who were prominent in the societ}- in Fort Wayne were: Rev. Somerville Light, now pastor First M. E. church, Bluffton, Indiana; Rev. Joseph B. Sites, Shawnee Mound, Indiana; Prof. C. O. Merica, instruc- tor of philosoph}-, Lawrence University, Appleton, Wis. ; Dr. and Mrs. George C. Stemen, Fort Wa -ne; Jacob Goodj-ear, banker, Bluffton, Ind.; Clara M. Gurdon, reporter, Tacoma, Washington; W. H. Turner, Detroit, Michigan; J. T. Dickes, M. D., Portland, Ind; Hon. J. A. Hindman, Hartford City, Ind., and Rev. A. T. Briggs, of the Northwest Indiana Conference. Since the removal of Taylor University to Upland, the Philaletheans have had their share of prosperity, ample and able membership, and had also shared largely in the honors of the school. Members of this society have brought honor to themselves and their society in the prize contests. In that of 1896, nearly all the prize winners were Philaletheans. The graduates of later years have, a large portion of them, worn the blue and white. The class of ' 98 is composed of students of more than ordinary ability, and the Philaletheans are proud to count among their number a large majoritj- of the members of this class. Various states of the Union, and wide!} ' seperated foreign lands are repre- sented by those who respond to our roll call. Because of the sturdy self reliance of her members, their loftiness of pur- pose, their desire to give and receive the best that college life affords, the Philalethean Literary Society will continue to count in its ranks the students who, as " Lovers of Truth, " will bear their part in the great warfare between Truth and Error. Ipbilaletbean Pliilalelliean is a word That ' s easil} ' woven into rlij-nie, And when its r3-thniic ring is heard, You can ' t forget its pleasant chime. Some words are born, and others die, And some are old and some are new. But " Phileo " long has meant " to love, " And " Theos " always means " the Truth. So we are lovers of ' ' the Truth, ' ' Most noble, beautiful, sublime. Which, like the glittering stars above. Shines on, undimmed by flight of time. We consecrate ourselves to her. An earnest band of noble j-outh. We ' ll ever stand for all that ' s .good. Devoted " Lovers of the Truth. " And we will scatter far and wide, The precious gems of Truth divine. That they like stars of joy and light. In human hearts and lives may shine. Not only would we love " the Truth, " But we ' d be guided by her light. That all our words and deeds ma}- help Illuminate the world ' s dark nitfht. IPbilalctbcan annual. June 4, j:}o P. M. Instrumental Solo PROF. S. EBRIGHT Invocation.

ON the twentj- ' Secoud daj ' of November, IS.iO, a little baiul of eight 3-oung men met and organized the " Thalonian " Literary Society. Although they had a constitution and h}--laws, the organization was not a pronounced success. In 1853, October 14, the Society was reorganized, a new constitution and bj ' -laws were adopted, and since that time the " Thalonians " have been an active band of workers. For several years the influence of the gentle sex was unknown in the literar3 ' hall, but at last the beneficial results of this influence were recognized and equal rights and privileges were given to ladies and gentlemen. When Tajdor University came to Upland in the fall of 1893, the Thalonian Societ}- came with it, but was represented at finst by only one member. Shortly afterward another memljer came, recruits were taken until there were twelve members, and again we were fighting the great battle of life. Of this number we still have with us as active members four. It was discovered that we were in need of a more substantial foundation for our government, accordingly in Ja nuary, 189-4, we adopted a constitution and by-laws which remained in force for one 3 ' ear. Also at this time Pink and Yellow were adopted as the societj- colors. The next school 3-ear was one of the best 3-ears of our existence as a societ3 ' . Our numbers were greatl3 ' increased, and new duties called us to revise our constitution and b3 ' -laws. A committee, Messrs. Bechtel, Stock- dale and Dicke3 ' , were appointed for the work, which the3 ' finished in Feb- ruar3 ' , 1895. As revised, it was adopted and is in operation at the present time. From Januar3- to April the societ3 ' claimed, for the first time in its histor3 ' , a lad3 ' president. A movement was started Ma3 ' 1, 1895, to attempt to get the societ3 ' char- tered. Messrs. Bechtel and Dicke3- were appointed as a committee for the purpose. Articles of Association were drawn up, a seal was secured, a Board of Trustees was established, but here the matter rested. On May 10, 189.5, a badge was adopted. The next 3 ' ear, the time and talent of the members were devoted to literarj- pursuits onl}-, and the year was a marked success in intellectual improve- ment. But ajraiii in the school 3-ear, ' 96- ' 97, Thalonians started a new enter- prise, that of furnishing- lectures and entertainments at home and abroad. The Board was the first committee, and two lectures were provided by them. Then a r.e,ij;ular entertainment committee was appointed, consisting of Messrs. Shinn and Dickey. The ' arranged for and gave two entertainments in adjoining towns and one in our own town. But the crowning effort of the 3 ' ear was the incorporation of the society, which was executed bj ' Messrs. Kline, Shinn and Dickey representing the societ}-. The date of incorpora- tion was June 1, 1897. Also, at this time W. W. Neal founded a library, pre.senting the first books on June 5, 1897. A few books have been added since that time, but we niu.st .say that this laudable enterprise is still in its infanc} ' . The present year has been one of earnest striving, which, on the whole, has been liberall}- rewarded with success. The principal event of the -ear, in matters of busine.ss, was the determination to secure a new piano. The committee on this work was Prof. Lulu Curme, J. G. Gerwick and Dais- - Kline. The society is now enjo3-ing the fruit of the labor of this committee, which has placed a piano in the hall. Since such marked success has crowned our efforts, and the condition of the society at present is so prosperous, we might reasonabl3- predict for our- selves a glorious future, but we shall not attempt to rend asunder the •eil which hides our destiny from our vLsion. Miscellaneous, JJthletics. athletics In very few Colleges will one find an equal to our students for phj ' sical health and vigor. There has been but little sickness and our students as a body are strong and athletic. This is due to the excellent advantages in out-door sports. While the student is receiving the mental drill which will enable him to solve the more perplexing problems of life, and while he is developing the Christian character so essential to success, our College also endeavors to have him develop his ph sical powers. Knowing the evils resulting from match games with other Colleges, not only in the waste of time but also in loss of health, our students are prohibited from playing with any other College or organization, but this does not weaken our enthusiasm for out-door sports.

(6) XLhe Best Xesson Tell me, O sage, so wise and so old, I eagerly ' questioned one day. Of all the lessons you have ever learned Which one is the grandest, I pray ? Yours are the treasures of ancient lore In languages living and dead; The heroes of all the ages throng About you with noiseless tread. Their rarest garlands, the muses Have placed on j our snow-white hair; The goddess of wisdom has chosen j-ou A priest for her temple fair. So of all the lessons the books have taught. The one that is best I would learn. And make it my own in whatever tongue, For this doth my spirit yearn. But the wise old man thus answered me. With a tender 3fet chiding look; ' ' Time alone the best lesson reveals. It is not found in a book. " ©utsibe the Malls T) ELIEVING their enemy to have sailed away, those to whom that day I J was to be the last, opened wide the gales of ancient Tro} ' , and it pleased them to examine the abandoned places and the deserted shore. So, Winter, having long besieged ovir walls, has at last retreated before the ad- vancing legions of Spring, and we, too, are glad to roam where his wide spreading tents have been. In his footsteps flowers are blooming. The young trees planted by students and teachers on Arbor Day, are becoming accustomed to their new soil and promise to shelter with welcome shade the gathering throngs of future commencement seasons. About half way between the building and the street on the ea.st, is a group of pine trees which once shaded a small home. When the house was first built, nothing seemed more improbable, more impossible, than that it would ever have for a neighbor, the stateh- hall of Taylor University. Could we only understand the secrets those pines unceasingly whisper to each other, they would tempt us to linger long within their shadow. But trees and flowers are to be found ever3 ' where and we must not tarry. Yonder to the southward, the pride of the college and dear to the heart of him who designed it, stands the observator}-. Unwilling to trust to other hands the erection of this monument, the Class of ' 97 left near the drive a huge boulder with the date clearly engraved upon its face. Against the northeast corner of the building is a bit of English ivy planted b} ' the Class of ' 98. Near by a little fountain plaj-s, and in its basin a few- fish from the distant river have found a new home. Not only spirituallj- and intellectually is Taylor Universitj- as a light set upon a hill, but in a literal sense also, for her gas well supplies her own Iieeds and furnishes light and fuel in all the neighboring dwellings, Mail) ' another campus maj- be of wider extent, or of more beautiful adorn- ment, displaying the art of some skillful landscape gardener, 3-et here nature has been exceeding kind. For desirabilitj ' of location and for commanding view of the surrounding country, this part of the State affords no better place than the summit of the height crowned b)- Wright Hall, no scene more pleasing than the broad acres gently sloping just outside the walls. Tell me, O ye stars that glitter With a bright celestial light, Of the morn ye sang together, O ' er the dome of vanquished night. Tell me, how the music floated To the rims of boundless space, And resounds through the caverns Of the struggling Prince of Chaos. Tell me, earth, from whence the nuisic, That is wrapped about th}- form. Did it come to thee from Heaven, When the stars sang on that morn? Tell me if its coming clad thee With the verdure, mountain, lake. Rushing river, blushing valley. Forest, cascade and landscape. Tell me, O ye richest verdure. As I walk across the plain. Will } ' ou whisper where 3-ou came from On the sunbeams in the rain ? Is there not a message for me In your silent mantle green. If I bow nn ' head and listen, v ' ill you tell ma where 3-ou ' ve been? Mountains, break j ' our awful silence, Speak to ear as well as eye ; Tell me, did the music form thee While the stars sang in the sky ? Know this: while thy form so stateh-. Stands so solemn, grand and true, ' e will feel eternal glorv Come to earth along with }-ou. Tell nie, lakes and seas and rivers, As 3 ' our waters round me roll, Is your voice a deep cantalion. Deep and varied as the soul ? In the mighty sobs of ocean, In the glimmer on the lake, In the dark, tempestvious billows Are there notes of praise or fate ? Tell me, smiling valleys, how you Came to be so fvill of joy. Surely you have much of gladness, Much that will our fears destroy. Tell me, is ' t because you ' re lowly We your borders ofttimes seek. And returning, carry with us. Blessings to the mountains bleak ? Tell me, forest, nature ' s harbor For all creatures of the earth. Why your notes are sometimes plaintive, Why sometimes so full of mirth ? In th} ' cradle I was fostered. Brought to manhood b}- thy song, Spii ' it of the forest tell me. Art thou ill the city ' s throng? Tell me, O thou great Niagara, Why your smile is so sublime ? What hast thou within thy keeping, What for our terrestrial clime ? Art thou liquated music. From the hollow of God ' s hand, Singing while thy m3 ' stic fingers Strew his blessings o ' er the land. Landscape graced with flowers and foliage, Orchards, meadows, rippHng rill, All is life and joy about thee. Save the churchyard on the hill. Tell me, as the sun is sinking. Fading from us in the west. Did those in the churchyard yonder Leave us as the svm has left ? Come hold conference, all nature. Speak, ye isles be -ond the sea. Let us for our Gibraltar, Take our stand on Calvar}-. Hear the Son of God declaring, " It is finished! ye are free! " Nature shouting, " God Imniaiiuel Gives us Immortalitv. " flDoone Xibrar .

We ' ll not think of walls of spendor, decked with famous works of art, Nor of carpets, soft and brilliant, bought in some great foreign mart; Nor of gorgeous chairs and tables, of the latest stj ' le or kind, For such things as these at boarding halls are very hard to find.

No, we cannot well recall them for the- - did not have there. But we ' ll think how we .so often at the dinner bell ' s loud call, Took great appetites in with us to that College Dining Hall, And how in vain so often looked about for something new, And those appetites we brought in, we still had when we got through. And we ' ll surely think of beans, that long have been our daily fare. They have been with us at dinner, and at supper they were there; Though we can ' t say we enjoyed them, yet we ate them just the same. For a very obvious reason that I do not need to name. We ' ll remember Fox ' s crackers, for we had them every meal; And those big unpeeled potatoes that we always had to peel; Then how well do we remember, it ' s a fact we can ' t deny, That one day in every seven brought around a piece of pie. And we can ' t forget some fellows, who would eat so long and fast. That it seemed their dreadful appetites forevermore would last; While someone with much politeness who was so precise and neat. Would find out when he got started that there wasn ' t much to eat. But tho ' she has had her failings, she has not been wholly wrong. For the Hall has taught us lessons that will make us brave and strong. And there are no other mem ' ries that we sooner would recall. Than the many thoughts that cluster round a College Dining Hall.

Kingan Benediction REv. John C. White, A. M. IN our own fair Indiana, in our boasted Hoosier land, Where are brooks and vales and meadows, and where towering forests stand, Where the earth is full of beaut_v, where the sky is clear and blue, Stands a school by God protected, it is grand old Ta3dor U. Not alone those halls for study, nor the forests waving nigh, Not alone the sacred chapels, nor the beauteous sun-lit sky. In our thoughts in coming lifetime, will our memories renew, But will think of many lessons we have learned at Taylor U. Other memories more pleasant than the fairest scenes of earth. Memories of familiar faces of our friends of untold worth, Faces beaming like the sunshine, voices breaking forth in song: Ivives that by the ir jo - and gladness helped to make our own lives strong. Lives about us, grand and noble, full of power from above, Faces marked b} care and labor, in their tireless work of love, Hearts in touch with God and nature, that in labor did not tire, Helped to make our own lives better and our souls were lifted higher. Oh! those holy ties of friendship which we formed, so true and sweet, May we never, never break them, may we keep them all complete. Oh! the many useful lessons, may we keep them ever true, Lessons of the noblest manhood, which we learned at Ta -lor U. When the voice of dutj- calls us from these sacred halls to part. Still may friendship ' s chain, unbroken, bind each other heart to heart; And in distant fields of labor, precious mem ' ries we ' ll renew, Meni ' ries of the happj ' seasons we have spent at Taylor V. (Tominencentent 2)a There are many happ) seasons, in the life of every man. That contain so many pleasures, he would live them o ' er again; There are joyous times that often to the lot of mortals fall, But our day of graduation is the gladdest one of all. Fields and meadows, brooks and forests, often cheered our youthful daj-s. Our young lives were full of sunshine, and our feet trod pleasant ways, And those early scenes of childhood still our memories recall; But our da} ' of graduation is the gladdest one of all. ,, . f. And our early village school days, where we learned to read and write, " ; Formed a picture in our mem ' ries that forever will be bright; ;■ But of all the happy seasons, be they e ' er so great or small, Our dav of graduation is the gladdest one of all. Then the many days in college, we shall ever hold them dear, For the} ' helped to make us better, helped to fill our lives with cheer; But of all the liapp}- seasons spent within a college hall, Our day of graduation is the gladdest one of all. Samuel fIDotris WE present on the opposite page the picture of Samuel Morris, the Keru bo} ' , whose hfe has had more to flo with the building of Taylor University, and the fixing of its character than all other human causes combined. It is safe to say that at least one-half of all the students who have attended the University, the past five years, have been drawn there by reading the thrilling, pathetic storj ' of the life of this poor African boy. The little book sells for ten cents a copy and mo re than 75,000 copies have been sold. It has been translated and published in several different languages and has gone through ever}- continent and island of the whole world. The result has been that the people have learned of Taylor Uni er- sity, where Sammy Morris was educated, and students have come to her halls from all parts of the earth. But who was Sammy Morris? He was a poor, iinlettered Keru boy, who fled from the lash of a cruel master, and reached the western coast of Africa, where he found employment in a coffee plantation. While here he heard of Jesus and was soundly converted ; he also learned to speak English, and to read and write a little. But the great thing that came to him, and on which all his subsequent history turned, was a call from God to cross the great ocean and seek an education in America. This call was so plain that he never for a moment doubted but that he should come. He had no money, but, he said, " Father will provide a waj ' . " " Father " did provide a way, for, though the captain of a vessel that came into the port repulsed him at first, and with curses and kicks ejected him from the vessel, he afterward took him on board and allowed him to work his passage to America. The sequel was that, by his mighty faith and patient Christian life he won the captain and most of the crew to Jesus. He landed in New York, and was kindly entertained by Rev. Stephen Merritt, and in the James street church and in the ' Mission succeeded in bringing many to a ' cc pt Christ as a present Saviour from sin. He was received at Ta3-lor University in the Au- tumn of 1891. He came without a penny ; he came with only enough edu- cation to read and write a little ; he was the only black boj- in the school, j ' et no student ever received a more hearty welcome. The members of the Faculty all learned to love him and the students vied with each other in their efforts to make him feel at home and to advance him in his studies. The dominant principle of his life was Faith in God In his prayers he would talk to God ju.st as he would to one of his teachers, and when he asked for anything he never doubted but that he should receive it. In a little while everj ' one in the school came to look on Sanimj Morris with reverence ; all felt that he had an unusual close walk and open communion with God. His insight into the scripture was perfectly marvelous. While he could not read the Bible without stopping to spell out most of the longer words, yet when he proceeded to explain, giving his simple, literal waj of interpreting, it seemed like a new book. But Sammj Morris was not to stay with us long ; he died at the end of two years. His work was great and lasting, but it was •er • short. When he was taken awav all wondered at the strange providence; thej- said, " why was he taken? he could have been so useful ; he was the most marvelous Christian we have ever known ; why was he not spared to return to his people in Africa? " We could not understand the pro ' idence, but it is all plain now. " He being dead, yet speaketh. " His work is going on and the influence of his holy life is being felt over the whole world. ©ur lEelescope A Telescop e is an interesting object to most people. " Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are, " Is in the mind of every one who is not abnormallj attached to the pleasures of the senses or the greed of money. To see how a heavenly body appears in the telescope is an ambition of those who have never looked upon the stars except with the unaided e3-e; and when they see an object in the skies through a good instrument on a favorable night it is likely to leave an impression that will never vanish from the memory or cease to excite the imagination. One of the good things that Taylor Universit} ' - has done this year is the purchase of a fine new 10 J inch reflecting telescope, and the erection of a pretty and convenient little observatory. This splendid acquisition was planned bj- the Astronomj ' class and made a happy reality through the loyal and spirited enterjjrise of the students of the University, and the kindness of their friends whom the ' solicited. The money was assured before any contract was made and the cash was paid on delivery. The picture accompanying this article was speciall3- prepared from our telescope. " We were exceedingh fortunate in giving our contract for the telescope to Lohmann Brothers, of Greenville, Ohio, and for the observatory to Mr. T. J. Deeren, of Upland, Ind. The purpose in getting this telescope has been not alone to benefit the astronomy classes, but also to please and exalt all the students and accessi- ble patrons of the University, by giving them frequent telescopic views.

This volume is a perfect treasure of knowledge and of inspiring incidents relating to college life. It is a book of matchless interest to young men and women who desire to achieve what their generation has a right to expect of them. — Bp;njamin Harrison, Ex-President of the United vStates. The vast wealth of anecdote and incident gathered, is in itself a storehouse of wealth and fills one with wonder. I trust it will have a wide circulation. — Ch. ri,ks W. F.airb. nk, U. S. Senator. The copy of the 1898 Class Book of Taylor University received last week. After carefully reading it, I wish to say, it is the most interesting and valua- ble book I have ever read. As a work of reference it is fine. No library- will be complete without it. — Yours respectfully, Grover CeEVELAnd. In ni}- late trouble with Spain I found no one book that contained so much valuable information which would helji in the great question of war and governn ' .ent, as the ' i!8 Class Book of Tavlor Universitv. Your Committee will receive the thanks of the whole nation for this valua- ble contribution. Reading it, one finds comfort in every trouble, strength in every hour of weakness, happiness in every time of anxiety, and sunshine all the time. — Yours, Wii iam McKini,Ey. Let me congratulate you on your book as a work of art. — Ros. Bonheur. As the rub}- among gems, so is 30ur contribution among books. Sermons flash from every page, and every sentence weighs a ton. The illustration offered b}- your professor of chemistry should be in the hands of all minis- ters, and the space devoted to the school of prophets is of inestimable value. — Yours fraternallv, T. DeWiTT TaemaGE. Hn the Cbeinical Xabovator . PROFESSOR, (holding up three test tubes, all filled with pure, clear liquid). — " Class, as you study, 3-ou must observe and get something practical out of this. Some of 3-ou are preachers, I will now gi e -ou a ver}- valuable illustration. When a soul is born into this world, it is pure and spotless and clean — just like this liquid in this test tube. After a while it sees sin in the world, and to it, sin seems as beautiful and colorless as this liquid in test tube No. 2. But when the the two come together the result is horrible. " (Empties contents of test tube No. 2 into test tube No. 1; result, a dark, vile locking percipitate, the sports shudder, while the Theologs smile serenely several successive smiles. ) The professor, much pleased, continues: " Now, seeing the awful result of sin, the soul seeks for purifi- cation, but nowhere can it find it. Yes, gentlemen, you may search through this whole laboratorj and you will find but one liquid that can cleanse this darkened liquid. " (Picks up test tube No. 3.) " As with nature, only one reagent for this percipitate, so with the spiritual world there is only one waj- to cleanse. As this acid cleanses this filthy liquid and makes it as pure and clean as it was at first (begins to pour contents of test tube No. 3 into test tube No. 1 ) so the blood of , mj- gracious ! ! ! if I didn ' t get hold of the wrong stuff — that makes it worse than ever. " Curtain drops amid tremen- dous applause while the professor disappears with the test tube filled with a jet colored substance. ,5 -3 c o V T3 bi bf W o 3 S be o 1 1 i4 o o 5 £ 1 u5 S U2 CO U2 o o ft ( ) 1 1 bo P5 bo Is W p bo s Ss o bo •3 1 bo s o bj) bo be ' 3) a 2 bo c 1 bij M z bo bo bo t5 £ 1 bo W V bo bo u 6 ' E bo 5 bii IS 11 " o bo o o ' bo e.

Typhon Fortunatus Everhart and Charcheniish Abelnieholah Inclines join in the chorus. The prophets all having assembled and at their accustomed places with Dabasheth Chusanrishathaim Eberhart in the chair. After the devotional exercises the Rev. Prof. Lornhamah Assurbaniaple Jones, D. D., L,L. D., S. T. D., Ph. D., addressed the prophets on the subject of " Transubstantiation- alisni, or Exegetical studj- of Rhomboids and Trapezoids, or did Man spring from a Tadpole? " " Sons and daughters of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, worthy successors of the great, illustrious and mighty prophets. " (He clears his throat. ) " It is indeed a privilege to be permitted to address such a mag- nificent body of learned, educated and instructed people. " That ' s so. " (The speaker takes a drink and continues. ) Can there be such a thing as transub- stantiation without a change of form? (Cries of No! No!) No, most illus- trious prophets, there cannot was. There must be a change not onh of the substance, but of the form also. The acute must become obtuse, the circular must become square, and the rhomboids must, without anv doubt, become trapeziods. (That ' s right. ) And now this leads us directly to the cjuestion, " Did we indeed spring from tadpole? " The speaker having finished, wiping the perspiration from his mas,sive forehead, proceeds to sit down on his plug hat, while the prophets begin to applaud. Long, loud and deafening was the applause that rang from the galleries and arose from the corridors, and reverberated down the long aisles of the chapel. Brother Esau Abednago Bunner, being so suddenlv awak- ened, jumped to his feet, thinking that the Facult}- had again taken action concerning social relations, grabbed his hat, and with a look of desperation, started down the aisle. On being assured that no such thing had happened, he was persuaded to take his seat. After a trio by the three Hebrew children, Schadrach Goliath Noble, Meshach Lamentations McCusker, and Abednago Jehosophat Whipkey, the subject was thrown open for discussion. Pelatiah Ebenezer Greenwalt took the floor. — " I ' or a longtime I have been meditating upon this very subject. Not verv long ago, while taking a walk, I discovered some verj ' valuable specimens of rhomboids grazing along a stream in which were quite a nimiber of tadpoles, and right then I deter- mined to get down to the very depths of the science and find out if I did spring from a tadpole or not. " Amid profound silence Mr. Greenwalt takes his seat, while Aaron V3 ' cliffe Hammer takes the floor. " You fellows may believe in this theorj ' of tadpoles if j ' ou want to, but I don ' t take much stock in that. For my part I don ' t suspicion I am any more related to a nionke} ' than a rhomboid is to a tad — " Mr. Hammer was here interrupted by Mr. Felix Wesley Gress, who arose to a point of order. ' ' Mr. President, I object to that speech, his grammar is bad. According to the dictionary ' suspicion ' is a noun and not a verb, and he said ' I ' m ' for ' I am ' . But fur- thermore, he was off the subject — monkevs is not the subject under discus- sion; the subject are rhomboids and I sincerel}- believe that — " At this point the president arose, stating that the time for adjournment had come, and after singing, five minutes were spent in shaking hands and congratulating the speaker of the day. IC pical Coinnuttee eetino. Time set for meeting, 7:30 p. m. Scene, Anderson ' s front room. 8:30. Anderson comes rushing up from the parlor where he had heen dis- cussing the public school .s -stem with . " Where under the shining sun are those fellows? Fifty minutes late now, we won ' t get a thing done tonight. " Sits down to read. 8:41. ' Schrader, rushing in with breath in short pants, sa3 ' S: " Wh) ' , aren ' t those fellows here yet ? ' ' Anderson — " No, wonder where Jamgotchian is; do j-ou know? " Schrader — " Yes, I saw him down at the Gilpen Corner and told him to come. He said he would as soon as he could tear himself awa}-. " They then begin to look up a roast for Miss Seeds. 8:52. Jamgotchian comes in. Anderson and Schrader in chorus say: " Here already-? " " Yes, came just as soon as I could, but boys, I had to see a person about a little business. Very sorry, but — " Anderson — " See an ' thing of Duncan, Jam? " " Yes, he went down toward the Pittenger house, but will be here in a short time — said he would not stay long tonight.

" Hello here, I got here at last, ' hat have you done alread}-? How is that joke on the faculty ? " Anderson — " We haven ' t done a thing. Did 3-ou see Eberhart? " Duncan — " Yes, I met him down the walk, and he said he couldn ' t come tonight because he had a date. " Anderson — " That ' s too bad; hasn ' t been at a meeting j ' et, has he? " Jamgotchian — " Yes, he was here when we had the committee picture taken. " Schrader — ' ' Yes, and he was here when we sent our autographs to the engraving company. " Duncan — " Oh, yes, he was here, and corrected some copy for the printer, " Jamgotchian — " How are the statistics? " Anderson — " Has Eberhart done anything about that? " Chorus of No ' s. Anderson — " Now, what will we do about athletics? Shall we leave it out or put it in ? Looks queer to leave athletics out of a class book, but I reck- on we had better leave it out in order that we may be able to get some of the other roasts through the Faculty, because if they begin cutting out thej- will spoil the whole book. " Janigotchiau — " Yes, we had better leave it out. " Duncan — " Yes, we had better leave it out. " Schrader — " Y-e-s, we had better leave it out. Anderson — " Has anyone heard from the Juniors about their work? " Duncan — ' ' Yes, their president said they had hard work to fill up their pages. " All the committee looked at old class books and silence reigns for twenty minutes. ' ' Ha ! ha ! ha ! bo -s, look here, ' ' is heard from the corner of the room oc- cupied b} ' Schrader and his chair. " How is this quotation ; — ' A modern Sampson where the weakness is beneath his hair. ' Who will that fit? " Anderson — " Oh, that is too much of a roast. The Faculty will knock that out when we read it to them. " Duncan — " We had better let that go. " Jamgotchian — " Yes, we had better leave that out. " Anderson — " Now lets get down to business and do something. " The retiring bell rings. Duncan — " Well, boj-s, it is time to go home; I am .sleepy, I lost lots of sleep la,st night. " Jamgotchian — " Yes, let ' s go; I won ' t get in earlj- tomorrow night. " Schrader — " No, bo3 ' s, we can ' t go j-et. We have too much to do, be.sides I have no date tomorrow — can ' t get one. " Anderson — " Well, boys, we must be excused from classes, this takes too much time. " Duncan — " Oh, let ' s go home. " Jamgotchian — " Well, let ' s go. " Schrader — " All right.

Cole, Ass ' t Cashier. •! p F MTS] Tl l Ih Tune, Havihurg. To-day we meet together here, We who so oft have met before. But now our parting time draws near; Parting, perhaps, to meet no more. To meet no more within these halls, Where we have toiled from da} ' to day; For loud the voice :of duty calls, " Go to your work; yes, haste away. " Go, if need be, to toil and tears. Though sorrow oft your spirit grieves. Yet, when the harvest time appears, With joy you ' ll bear the golden sheaves. Go, and to all your trust be true; Go anywhere the Lord may send; For lo, his promise is to you, " Behold, I ' m with you to the end! " And if we meet no more below In this dark land of toil and strife. We ' ll meet at last, above, we know. In joy and peace and endless life. JOHN H. SHILLING. ■ :v V . " W K X x xK ■ V x t X v
