I - Class of 99 scarcely needs an introduction to any of this terrestrial sphere. However, from the mere act of formality, it may be deemed a necessity. Those of this world who do not already know of the wonderful achievements of this Class of '99 will only have to exist a comparatively short time when they shall gaze with admiration and astonishment and exclaim, wonderful! wonderful! what marvelous changes these men have wrought! What more is there that we could do to perpetuate the sacred memory of the past; and, how markedly modest are these exclamations.
As a Class, our Class, the Class of ’99 has performed each and every duty, grasped every opportunity and fulfilled each obligation as it might present itself in a way that would tend to make any other Class green with envy, which color is suggestive of the lack of intellectuality, an insinuation which could not fairly be suggested of us. Again the Class of ’99 comes boldly to the front, this time with the assertion that no other Class has introduced so many features conducive to a geniality and the general good-fellowship which characterizes our Class, as has ours, thereby exterminating all Class distinctions.
As a natural consequence of our existence, all are our friends and none are our enemies. What a delightfully sweet thing is that, to be the paramount incentive to calm the roughened and turbulent waters.
Again, the expressions of personal regard, esteem, confidence, sympathetic affinity; nay, may I not add affection, which each and every individual member of this Class has for each other and the world-at-large, has become an habitual experience and untiring source of satisfaction, which is only another evidence of our superiority.
Is it surprising that, with these inexhaustible, excellent qualities, our Class, the Class of ’99, should naturally feel conceited, to a greater or less extent? In fact, is it not permissible? Conceit is to the human character what salt is to the ocean. It keeps it sweet and renders it endurable.
To continue to laud the merits of our Class would be an inexhaustible task, for such could never be recorded by any one individual of the average longevity of existence. Shall I go on, or have I said enough ?
J- A.CONDENSED HISTORY
Philadelphia Dental College and Hospital of Oral Surgery
The first institution established in Pennsylvania, for the imparting of knowledge in the science and art of dentistry, was organized in 1852 under the title of the Philadelphia College of Dental Surgery. After a useful but short life of four years, it yielded to the throes of internal dissension and ceased to exist.
In the fall of 1862, Dr. John H. McQuillcn, holding the chair of Operative Dentistry and Physiology in the Pennsylvania College, retired from the faculty, and in 1863, with the assistance of other members of the profession in the city and State, and after the expenditure of much effort and the overcoming of great opposition (for charters were not as readily obtained in those days as now), he succeeded in obtaining from the legislature of Pennsylvania a charter for a new institution under the name of the Philadelphia Dental College.
After the securing of a competent Faculty and Board of Trustees, the new institution opened its first term in November of the same year. Its Faculty consisted of:
Dr. J. H. McQuillen, Professor of Anatomy, Physiology and Hygiene. Dr. J. Foster Flagg, Professor of Institutes of Dentistry.
Dr. C. A. Kingsrury, Professor of Dental Physiology and Operative Dentistry.
I)r. Thos. Wardell, Professor of Mechanical Dentistry and Metallurgy. Dr. Henry Morton, A. M., Professor of Chemistry.
9I)r. McQuillen was elected Dean and held that office continuously until his death. In 1865, Profs. Kingsbury and Morton resigned and were succeeded by Dr. Geo. W. Ellis and Albert R. Leeds, A. M. In 1866, Prof. Ellis resigned and Prof. Kingsbury resumed his former chair. In 1867, Prof. Warded resigned and Dr. D. D. Smith was elected to succeed him.
The same year two new chairs were created, one of Principles and Practice of Surgery and the other of Anatomy. Dr. James E. Garretson was chosen incumbent of the former and Dr. Harrison Allen of the latter.
In the following year, 1868, Profs. Garretson and Leeds resigned, and Dr. S. B. Howell was elected to succeed Prof. Leeds.
In 1869, Prof. Kingsbury resigned his chair and was made Emeritus Professor and Dr. T. C. Stillwagen was chosen as his successor.
In 1870, Prof. Flagg resigned and his chair was divided among the others.
Thus far some change had taken place in the personnel of the Faculty each year but one. During the succeeding eight years no change occurred, but in 1878 Prof. Garretson resumed his chair of Anatomy and Surgery, and Dr. Henry I. Dorr was made Adjunct Professor of Practical Dentistry.
In 1879, the chair of Dental Pathology and Therapeutics was established and Prof. Flagg was chosen to fill it. Owing to the lamented death of Prof. McQuillen, during this year, some changes in the chairs were made necessary. Prof. Stillwagen succeeded Prof. McQuillen in the chair of Physiology, and his former chair of Operative Dentistry was united to that of Mechanical Dentistry. At the same time a new chair of Clinical Dentistry was established, and Prof. H. I. Dorr chosen to fill it.
In 1881, Prof. Smith resigned and Dr. S. H. Guilford was elected incumbent of the chair of Operative and Prosthetic Dentistry.
In 1889, Prof. Dorr's chair was changed to that of Practical Dentistry, Anaesthesia and Anaesthetics.
From then until the death of Prof. Garretson in October, 1895 (a period of fourteen years), no changes occurred, but after his death Dr. 11. C. Boenning was elected to the chair of Anatomy and Surgery, and Dr. M. II. Oyer, for many years the assistant of Prof. Garretson, was chosen Adjunct Professor of Oral Surgery.
In January, 1896, Prof. S. H. Guilford was elected Dean of the Faculty.
In the spring of the same year Profs. Dorr and Flagg resigned, owing to ill health. Dr. L. Grunbaum was thereupon chosen to succeed Prof. Dorr and the chair changed to include Materia Mcdica, Anaesthesia and Odontotechny.
10Dr. H. H. Burchard was also chosen to fill the place of Dr. Flagg and made Special Lecturer on Dental Pathology and Therapeutics.
In October, 1896, Dr. Cryer resigned to accept a position in the Dental department of the University of Pennsylvania.
Few changes have occurred in the Deanship of the Institution. Prof. McQuillen held the position from the establishment of the school in 1863 until his death in 1879. He was succeeded bv Prof. Smith, who held the office for two years. Prof. Garretson assumed the office in 1881 and retained it until his death, 1895, after which Prof. Guilford, the present incumbent, was elected to the position.
The College has witnessed but few changes in Presidency of the Board of Trustees. The first incumbent was Rev. Richard Newton, D. D. At his death he was succeeded by the 1 Ion. James Pollock, L L. D., ex-Govcrnor of Pennsylvania, who retained the office during the remainder of his life, after which Gen. James A. Beaver, L L. D., ex-Govcrnor of Pennsylvania, was elected to the Presidency, which position he still so worthily fills.
At the time of the incorporation of the Philadelphia Dental College there were but three other Dental Schools in this country. One in Cincinnati, one in Baltimore and one in Philadelphia, with a combined attendance of less than one hundred pupils.
To-day there are in the United States about fifty institutions in which Dentistry is regularly taught, with a total yearly attendance of between four and five thousand students.
In the thirty-five years of its existence, the Philadelphia Dental College has graduated no less than 2407 students. Along with other schools it has advanced from a two years’ course of four months each to a three years’ course of six months, with supplemental Spring and Fall course covering four months more. From an annual curriculum that required but thirty-four lectures from each Professor, it has developed into one in which more than one hundred didactic lectures are given annually by the incumbent of each chair. In addition to this the clinical facilities have been greatly enlarged year by year, giving to the students opportunities for the attainment of a degree of manual dexterity undreamed of years ago. One of the most prominent advances in recent years has been the establishment of technic courses in the Freshman and Junior years, cultivating not only the hand, but the eye and brain, as well as adding immensely to the symmetrical development of the pupil.The Philadelphia Dental College was the first to introduce into its curriculum a course in oral surgery, and the first also to establish a hospital for the treatment of diseases of the oral cavity. The late Prof. Garretson was the first to make a special study of such diseases and to constitute their consideration a part of the dental curriculum. With him the trained hand of the dentist, in conjunction with the medically educated mind, made possible operations never before attempted.
The Philadelphia Dental College, in its many years of existence, has lost but three of its Professors through death, but of those who have thus been removed two were conspicuous lights with reputations that were world-wide. Both were men of indomitable energy, wise judgment, greatness of heart and nobleness of character. Each was a master in the art of teaching, and each, at the time of his death, was not only the Dean of the school but the most distinguished member of the Faculty.
Dr. McQuillen was the founder of the school. He labored unceasingly for its proper establishment and then, through all the remaining years of his life, faithfully devoted himself to its development Practice, comfort, health, and finally life were sacrificed in order that the school which he loved might become a temple of knowledge worthy of the respect of all men.
Dr. Garretson was as ambitious as his predecessor for the advancement of the institution with which he was connected and for the true elevation of the profession which lie loved. He was a man among men, capable of inspiring in others the confidence he felt in himself, and by his council and acts and teachings stimulating those under his care to the attainment of all that is noblest and best in life.
This brief record would be incomplete without some reference to the third one of the Professors of our school, called hence by death. Prof. C. A. Kingsbury ably seconded the efforts of Prof. McQuillen in the establishment of the Philadelphia Dental College, and was a member of its first Faculty. He served the institution actively for six years, and then continued in the honorary position of “emeritus” until his death in September, 1891. He proved himself a competent and faithful teacher, and his love for the institution and devotion to its interests were manifested in a multitude of ways.
During its existence two changes of location have been made necessary by the growth of the College.
Upon its establishment it was located at the northwest corner of Tenth and Arch Streets. There it remained until 1887, when it removed to a new and
12larger building on Cherry Street, below Eighteenth. Outgrowing these quarters in the course of eight years, it was decided to purchase ground in a new locality and erect a large and commodious building adapted solely to its own educational purposes. In 1896 a suitable location was found at Eighteenth, Hutton-wood and Hamilton Streets, and after the preparation of satisfactory plans, ground was broken and the erection of the building begun.
The corner-stone was laid with Masonic ceremonies January 13, 1897, and the structure completed in August, 1897.
The building was opened for the Eall Term on September 1st, and formally dedicated on October 4th.
In honor of its founder, the hospital has been named the Garretson Hospital. It occupies a large portion of the first floor of the new building, and consists of a public ward with seven beds and a private ward with two.
There are also a nurses’ room, kitchen, a beautifully furnished bath-room and etherization and recovery rooms.
3---------T---------------------------facultyI Demonstrators’99 Class ©fficers Executive CommitteeClass ’99?__57istoky has been defined as being “a systematic account of facts and
1 1 events.” Now as far as facts are concerned, it would almost appear that the one main fact in connection with the Class of ’99 might be deemed comprehensive enough to be in itself a History—the fact referred to being that the Class of ’99 has ever been, is, and always will be known as the Class. It would indeed appear almost unnecessary to use the word “ninety-nine,” in speaking of our Class, merely to say The Class, would, of course indicate, to anyone of even ordinary intelligence that only our Class could be the one alluded to.
However, though this fact may be so patent and is so comprehensive, it has been thought advisable, in the interests of posterity, to supply a more detailed account of the various events which have led to the recognition of the present exalted position of the Class. Let it be known then, that it was in the month of October 1896, that the Class came into existence and as in other similar important events in the World’s history, its full significance was soon recognized. Our Faculty, with their usual clear foresight, at once appreciating the exigencies of the case immediately took steps to provide for us a more suitable building than the one then occupied on Cherry Street. Of course this was an undertaking requiring some little time for its completion, and it was not until our Second year, that our new quarters were ready for us. But this is anticipating, and the fact was only mentioned in order that there may be no misunderstanding in the future, as to why our present elaborate quarters was necessary.
37Of course one of the first things to be done was to provide ourselves with Class Officers, to look after the interests, to organize, lead “Rushes,” and to raise funds to pay for broken black-boards, benches, etc., necessarily resulting from such affairs.
With this object, then, a meeting was held and the following gentlemen chosen for the various positions :—for President, E. B. Newell, Vice-President, M. J. Brazill, Secretary, Miss M. L. Warren, and Treasurer, C. F. Wilbur.
In our early days, such facetious remarks as “who blew out the gas,” and “ fresh,” were frequently to be heard, but the tone of scorn in which they were uttered, was destined to be very soon changed to one of marked respect. It
was quite early in the term that some presumptuous J uniors dared to render themselves obnoxious in our Laboratory, and very soon the cry of “Juniors out,” resounded on all sides.
In an instant all was commotion. The rest of the Junior Class very promptly answered the cries of their classmates for assistance, and for a short time the result of the fray appeared to be involved in some uncertainty, but our men, rising to the occasion, with a determination and vigor which has characterized their whole College career, made so fierce an onslaught, that very soon the intruding Juniors were forcibly ejected, carrying with them the remains of some of their more unfortunate men. From this time on, it was, that we were treated with the respect and consideration so evidently our due.
Needless to say we enjoyed many privileges in our First year, such, for instance, as being permitted to occupy the more elevated seats in the back of the Lecture Room. This arrangement had many advantages : in the first place, Professor Boenning’s eager eye was much less likely to light on us, when he assiduously went through the Classes, vainly endeavoring to elicit a correct guess in answer to some knotty question in anatomy and surgery, and in the second
38place, these seats being more remote from the Arena, were much more comfortable to sleep in, a fact very early recognized and appreciated.
There was much to occupy our time and attention in this term.
First, there was the upper story of the building to be explored, or that portion of it which was resigned to the occupancy of what are termed in Classical language “stiffs.”
Here we were allowed—nay—very pressingly invited by Dr. Fritz, to spend several hours each day, and it was noticed, about this time, that some of our men were growing pale and nervous, due, it is said, to the fearful and awful nightmares, experienced by some of the more impressionable, as the result of their visit to this department.
Then there was the Laboratory work to be attended to, and it is worthy of
remark, that even thus early in our career, our achievements were great. A fair portion of each day was spent in “ drawing ” teeth—at a rough estimate, it may be said that a couple of thousand teeth were “drawn” in our Laboratory—a great number of them in a manner that can only be described as decidedly “ free-hand.” Nevertheless, out of this enormous number, it is undoubtedly a fact that not one was broken in the operation.
This is certainly more than can be said of those extracted by the vain-glorious Senior Class, who, though they did
4 not extract one half this number, broke a great many. Hut, too much space cannot be given to the various incidents of the Freshmen Year, frought though they were with many evidences of the wondrous quality of the Class. March drew near and as examination came close, the boys could be seen at all hours, most diligently consulting innumerable text books, in the endeavor to straighten out the phenomenon of tooth-development, to learn more of the nervous system of the star-fish, and reading with the greatest interest, the peculiarities of the habits, occupation and mode of life of the all important Staphylococcus, Pyogenes Aureus, Leptothrix Buccalis and others of this tribe.
At last the examinations came on—needless to say they were very successfully negotiated and general rejoicing was everywhere evident. Now began the Spring Course, and as this is not a compulsory term, those of us who did not elect to remain, packed off, with all possible dispatch to other scenes. Of the Spring term and the Summer vacation there is nothing of importance to relate.
The second stage in our advance began in October 1897, when we again assembled—this time as fully qualified Juniors. Again it became necessary to elect Class Officers, with the result that the following were chosen :—for President, H. G. Fischer ; Vice-President, S C. Frederick ; Secretary, A. VV. Walsh and Treasurer, Willing Vose. By the way, our Secretary this year was one who hails from the land of the Zulu, and if he is to be regarded as typical of the residents of that locality, it is a matter of much regret that some gigantic upheaval of nature does not occur, which shall forever obliterate that tract of country, for anything more fiendish than the expression of his countenance can hardly be imagined, when sadly questioned by some wearied classmate as to,“who lectures next,” he would reply with awful glee, “what does it matter—you have to attend every lecture every day." (There were about 19 lectures and clinics each day except Saturday, when there were only about 17.) Besides, this same gentleman, at a later stage nominated the importunate Class Historian—another reason for wishing him some condign fate.
Now began the hardest year of our Course and if there be anyone who wishes to know what life in a Junior Year is like, it may as well be stated at once, that it must be endured before it can be realized. Indeed, life this term appeared to consist in a daily round of lectures and clinics, and no one, who has not tried the experiment can realize how hard wood can become. To anyone interested in the matter, we would suggest the experiment of sitting on a wooden bench for numberless hours each day for a period of seven months listening to lectures, and the knowledge thus gained will be vividly impressed on
42the mind—also if there should happen to be any such trifling irregularity in the surface of the bench as a stray nail-head, or something of that kind, it too will leave an indelible impression.
During this year we were afforded an opportunity to display to a wondering and admiring world, our remarkable skill in such matters as the making of all forms of fearful and wonderful crowns and bridges, orthodontia appliances and depositing plates. Let it be whispered, however, in this connection, that a very small drop of oil, carefully rubbed on a cracked porcelain tooth has been found most effective in concealing the existence of the said crack, and also that soft-solder when gilded over is somewhat hard to detect from the more refractory silver-solder. It was a matter of much satisfaction too—to a large portion of the Class, that the light is apt to grow dim about the hour of five p. m., in the months of December and January—possibly this may help to account for the large number of plates, crowns, and bridges that were “shown up” about this hour. The idea worked well for a short time, but Prof. Guilford, sees as far as most men and probably a little farther through such devices, and when after a little while the genial Dean would remark, “yes, sir, come this way,” and cordially usher the anxious student into his sanctum and proceed to examine the work in question before an electric light of what seemed to the now quaking individual to be of about 23,000 candle-power, the amount of work shown up at this time of day was greatly reduced and thereafter the early morning was thought to be a much more suitable hour for such inspections. Before arriving at this conclusion, however, truth compels us to state that mysterious consultations were constantly in progress between certain members of the Class and Mr. Perry R. Skinner, our electric wizard. It has been hinted that various flattering proposals were laid before this gentlemen, in fact it has even been suggested that a definite proposal was made, to the effect, that if on a certain day to be fixed in advance.
45at about the hour of five P. m. the electric lights should suddenly and mysteriously get out of order, all sorts of things of a nature calculated to be pleasing to Mr. Skinner might eventuate.
But all the time of the Junior Year was not employed in matters so practical as plates, crown and bridge-work, etc., there was the Bacteriological Laboratory to be attended to and there again we distinguished ourselves. One man (it is needless to say he comes from the West) who understood that I )r. Bacon's pets were classed somewhere in the Animal Kingdom, and thinking that his assistance might be required in bringing them to order, came the first morning equipped with a most carefully prepared lasso, and great was his disgust, when on entering the mystic room nothing more wonderful than a microscope could anywhere be seen.
He was subsequently heard to remark that Bacteriology was
a lot of “-----rot” and that he
failed to see the necessity for so carefully studying bodies so minute, and he even went further and said that he did not believe anyone could detect one from another and finally wound up by insinuating that he was prepared to make a sporting wager, to the effect that if the experiment were tried, he was willing to lay odds that their respective mothers could not distinguish the Streptococcus, Septopyaemieus from the Bacillus, Buccalis Maximus, or for that matter from the Micrococcus, Gingival Pyogenes. Theh too, we had to be introduced to the Chemical Laboratory and here again we shone—in fact some startling discoveries were here made, and it was noticed by Dr. Boom’s friends that he began to wear a rather dazed look about this time, due it is said, to the fact that the result of some of our efforts was to bring to light certain facts, hitherto unknown to the Scientific World.
While, however, our Second Term had but half run its course, new and sad
46experiences were before us. Up to this time our Class had presented an unbroken front, but now for the first time deep sorrow and regret appeared in our midst. W e were all deeply grieved when the I land of Death claimed a victim in the person of our honored Treasurer, Mr. W illing Vose.
The shock of so sudden a loss had not died away, when another classmate, Mr. F. J. Minnaman, was removed by the samestern Harvester. Fora long time the pathetic sight of those two empty seats with their sombre coverings of crape were a constant reminder of our lost and of the uncertainty of all things earthly, and it was long before the merciful hand of time soothed in some degree the regretful hearts of their classmates.
It is sometimes hard for our finite minds to comprehend the wisdom of the infinite Ruler, but we may rest assured that such workings arc for the best. Let us then to-day, while so deeply regretting that these classmates cannot be present with us in our Class day exercises, feel assured that their lot is doubtless best
Toward the end of the term a happy innovation was introduced into our College life in the shape of a Smoker when we entertained the graduating class. Modesty forbids us to enlarge upon the excellence of the affair, suffice it to say that the music was good, the refreshments equally so and apparently the cigars of the very best. Needless to say, the result of this new departure was most satisfactory to all concerned and the memory of that evening when class distinctions were obliterated and good fellowship reigned everywhere will ever be a pleasant one to every one there present.
Such events as these though could not of course be permitted to interfere with the more serious work of the term and as that fateful month of March was again approaching it behooved us to prepare ourselves most fully for the dread ordeal before our several professors. The eventful day came at last and anxious faces were everywhere seen as the hour of examination drew near.
First on the list, it will be remembered, came the examination in anatomy and surgery and if the faces wore an anxious look before the paper was given out it was soon changed to one of almost despair as the full realization of what was before us dawned on our minds. Hut a cool head is often of as much service on such an occasion as in other contingencies and though many a pillow supported an anxious and sleepless head that night, the state of affairs looked more hopeful in the light of the morning, and when the results came out at last great was the satisfaction as it was realized that things were not so bad after all. In due course followed the other examinations and it must be stated that everything
49must have been very satisfactory for nowhere could there be found any one who had not a “clean sheet,” “in spite of Professor Burchards historical 30%.”
By the way, it should prove rather interesting to try and discover where the “conditions" go. It is certainly on record that one man once was heard to admit that he had one condition but with this one exception nothing but “clean sheets" have ever been found.
That George Washingtons are not found everywhere now-a-days would appear to be the only explanation of the matter. So now the hard working Junior had entered on the third stage of College life and was now everywhere to be found seeking shoes and hats of sufficiently capacious dimensions to accomodate so important an individual.
Again the Spring and Summer passed and again as the October days came round, there gathered together for the last time our Class of ’99 now fairly entered on the last struggle for the much coveted degree of D. 1). S.
Class elections were a subject of much discussion, during the first two weeks of the term, and again the wisdom of the Class was displayed in its choice of officers.
The men chosen this year were : for President, W. O. Beecher; for Vice-President, E. D. Crawford ; Secretary, W. L. Stevenson ; and Treasurer, W. A. MacNicholl, and for the important office of Valedictorian, C. X. Reinig, after giving us a sample of his oratorical powers, was unanimously elected.
Now began some of the most marvelous transformations, men could everywhere be seen, visibly increasing in stature and chest measurement, and the growth was really as evident as is that of a tropical plant in the Spring.
What a wonderful Class we are. It would entail the consumption of too much ink to fully recount the many proofs of our claim in this distinction, but attention might be briefly called to the evidences of it as indicated by the various organizations of which our men arc the main-spring.
Look at the standing of our P'oot-ball team, our Hockey team, Garretsonian Society, Orchestra, Y. M. C. A., etc., and to what, we would ask, can these positions of these bodies be ascribed, if not to the presence of our men.
The Senior is a great person, and greater this year than ever before. If you doubt this statement ask Professor Burchard, his opinion can certainly be relied on. With what a beautifully patronizing air we stroll through the Junior and Freshmen Laboratories and deign to advise the poor occupants thereof as to the most profitable course to pursue in certain directions.
What wonders of beauty and skill our gold fillings are. Certainly, such
50remarks as this were occasionally to be overheard, more especially in the early part of the term. Thank you, madam! that is all, the filling is completed, and I have every reason to believe that it will prove as perfect as human skill can make it. Of course, though, you will understand that gold stands relatively high in the table of specific gravities, and as the filling is in an upper tooth you will, of course, appreciate the fact that the natural attraction of the earth is constantly in operation. Understanding this you will no doubt readily perceive that it will be advisable for you to refrain from descending a flight of stairs in a hurried manner, and it would also be well to abstain from descending in elevators which stop too suddenly, and from biting on that side of the mouth, and lastly, were I in your place, I would be careful not to allow any substance having an adhesive quality, such, for instance, as certain varieties of candy, to come in contact with the filling, etc., etc.
Among the many memorable events of this last year must be classed a certain rush in the Chemical Lecture room. It must be conceded that even the most dignified will sometimes unbend, and our Class, on this occasion, proved no exception. It certainly was a most glorious rush, too, if the number of bruised and bleeding men are to count for anything, and the number of lost articles may be regarded as another evidence of the same fact.
Notices of various “losts” appeared on the notice boards, men anxiously inquiring the probable whereabouts of such trifles as watches, sleeve-links, eye-glasses, and even portions of anatomy, such as pieces of ears, stray teeth, etc., etc.
One facetious individual even went so far as to advertise that if the present holder, or holders, of a coat would apply to a certain man they could secure the missing button and part of the sleeve as he, the original owner, had no further use for the said minor parts.
Another incident that will not readily be forgotten, occurred early in the term. Scene, the Ampitheatre; Prof. Guilford’s lecture. Prof. Guilford, before commencing his lecture: “ Gentlemen, I have an announcement to make,”
with the tenor of which, no doubt, you are familiar. “ The National Association
53of Dental Faculties this summer decided to cancel the rule requiring the attendance of students at 7$( of lectures.” (Terrific applause, yells and cheers, and other manifestations of intense delight from all parts of the room.)
Prof. Guilford continuing (by the way, did you ever notice what a particularly merry twinkle appears in the Dean’s eyes sometimes), “ yes, gentlemen, this rule has been rescinded, and it has been decided that in future all students shall attend ioo per cent, of all lectures.” Let us draw the curtain at this point, for the ghastly look of horror which was now to be seen formed too conspicuous a contrast to the former looks of ecstacy.
Many other episodes there are which deserve to be recorded, such, for instance, as the experience of Mr. Frederick on a certain Tuesday night or Wednesday morning (the exact hour seems to be somewhat uncertain). You
all know that every week we have an Ash Wednesday in Philadelphia, and that on Tuesday nights there arc innumerable barrels adorning our sidewalks. Now Mr. Frederick, it appears, had been looking upon the wine; that is to say, the moon, when it was red, like other men under similar conditions was inclined to be happy. Now, to anyone in this frame of mind, the barrels would appear to be possessed of some peculiar fascination, and—but there! the sequel is well-known to you all, so what need to go into further details. Let it suffice to say that Mr. Frederick has since seen fit to cultivate his powers of wind and limb, and has developed into a remarkably swift runner, and now declares that he can outrun anything wearing the regulation blue coat in the City of Philadelphia. But already this history has grown too voluminous, and it is time to think of the end. The pendulum of Time has swung relentlessly on, and the time has come to say farewell. Many of us forever to our classmates, the Faculty and our Alma Mater.
54Our history as a Class draws to a close, but the history of the various members thereof will certainly be found interwoven with the future history of nations. We have representatives from almost every State in the Union, and from nearly every nation of the world, and who is there who will dare to deny that the members of so illustrious a Class can fail to figure, in prominent relief, in the future history of the world.
And now my task is done, and if this history will, in the future, even afford but a few moments’ pleasure to any in recalling some of the scenes of our College career, the author will be more than repaid for any slight effort the writing has cost.

57} CLASS PROPHECY
Fatigued with the arduous intellectual labors of the day, a few nights ago, I retired to my study a little earlier than usual, and threw myself upon the lounge before the fire. Scarcely had I settled into a comfortable position when my whole surroundings underwent a wonderful transformation, as though by magic. Beautiful strains of music greeted my ears; golden ornaments, purple tapestry and dazzling brightness surrounded me on all sides. Ambrosial odors filled the air, and sparkling nectar mockingly tempted my moreal taste. I realized that I must be in the abode of the immortals upon the summit of high Olympus. My mind was filled with the thoughts of the mighty gods before whom Greece and Rome had worshipped, and of whom Homer and Virgil and Horace had sung. Wonder possessed my soul, that I, a mortal, should be permitted to enter this sacred abode. Suddenly a being of august and majestic bearing stood before me. My soul was thrilled, for I recognized this kingly personage as “The Father of Gods and Men,” known as Jupiter Tonans to the Romans, and death-dealing Zeus to the Greeks. In his hand he held a golden sceptre. I immediately fell upon my knees and besought the ruler of the immortals to unfold the future of our illustrious Class of ’99, that I might prophesy true things of my beloved classmates. Casting upon me a look of benignity which assured me that my petition was granted—Jupiter nodding to his curly-headed little cup-bearer to depart—immediately raised his wonderworking sceptre. Mirable dictii! the curtain of the years was lifted. The future stood out before me. I seized my pen and wrote—
61Beecher. The success of Mr. Beecher, our genial Class President, was always a foregone conclusion. I see him the leading dentist of our nation. He early won fame by making teeth warranted to thoroughly masticate the “embalmed beef" furnished our valiant soldiers in the Spanish-American war, without impairing digestion. He immediately received official recognition by the War Department, and now occupies the honorable and lucrative position of Chief Dentist on Gen. Miles' staff, which position he fills with great satisfaction to himself and the nation.
Reinig. Above the sweet strains of music I heard a melodious voice pouring forth wit and wisdom, and recognized the speaker as Reinig, the Valedictorian of our Class. Early in his professional life he became disgusted because his patients desired to do all the talking, so he abandoned Dentistry and entered the arena of politics, and is now known as the most eloquent and brilliant orator in Congress.
Morrison. Morrison, of splendid physique, is a firm believer in the expansion policy of our Government, as his lung development and chest expansion declare. Upon graduation, believing in retaining the Philippine Islands, he immediately emigrated to that famous archipelago and at once married a dusky belle, who has been a true help-meet to him, filling his home with sunshine and merry children. By industry and attention to his vast practice he attained both fame and riches. He recently retired, and now dwells in his beautiful villa overlooking Manila. He often longs to greet his old classmates, and expects to visit the home-land in the near future.
THE LADIES OF OUR CLASS
My attention was suddenly arrested by the approach of four beautiful maidens, whom I at first took for fairy goddesses, but whose identity was now graciously revealed as the sisters of our Class—Misses Warren, Douglass, Mary-son and Edwards. I freely admit the truth of the poet’s words:
“They talk about a woman’s sphere,
As though it had a limit:
There’s not a place in earth or heaven,
There’s not a task to mankind given,
There’s not a blessing or a woe,
There’s not a whisper Yes or No,
There’s not a life or death or birth That has a feather’s weight of worth Without a woman in it.”
62Without the humanizing, uplifting influence of these worthy sisters, our Class would have sunk into barbarism. The same gracious power has followed them into active life. Though honored with numerous offers of marriage, they have remained single, and thus are singularly devoted to their profession.
Pockley My thoughts then wandered back to the autocrat of the British colonists—a man of brilliant prospects, who has been permitted to glance upon fortune’s horoscope and see for himself merited success. Mr. Pockley has a style of his own, and his carefully compiled Class history, while lacking much of the wit which characterizes the man, savored much of the exactness and precision which marked his work generally. When back in his native Kangaroo home, he did justice to the Yankee methods of practicing Dentistry, and was the means of sending many Kangaroolets to our shores.
Crawford Several figures now flitted before my astonished gaze, among them one of massive frame, in whom I recognized my old friend, Crawford, handsome aud smiling as ever. Being of a generous disposition, not only in a pecuniary sense, but also as regards his affections, he settled in Utah, where he is meeting with merited success.
Cornelius. Among the lambkins of our flock, one there is of gentler mien than other lambkins rude, who, with his grace and gentle touch of all the maidens maketh much, yet never lost his heart—Cornelius! Valiant son of Man ! Thou art not old; don’t be a clam, but take a wife while yet you can to share life’s stern vicissitudes.
M'Nichol and Walker, known as the Sutherland Brothers, soon amassed a fortune in demonstrating the before and after effects of the use of Baldine, the only known remedy for restoring a luxuriant growth of hair to an otherwise naked cranium.
Who is this ? What is his name ?
Turner, the freak, destined for fame.
Abbott. Among our number was one who, early in his College life, cultivated the habit of wandering away into forbidden paths. One of the objective points of our classmate, who proved to be our festive friend Abbott, was Camden. I could not but smile when my thoughts carried me back to the time when Mr. Abbott, arrayed in most gorgeous attire, hied himself across
65the river of his customary haunt with a box of 25c. chocolates tucked snugly under his arm. Now this aforesaid box had previously fallen into the hands of his room-mate, who removed all but the upper layer of sweets, filling the space with oyster crackers and pickles. With his best bow he presented the box to his friend, whose affection forthwith turned to scorn, and “He never went there any more.”
Parker. Parker, the only man living who could enjoy a cold bottle in Deccm-be!'(?), found Dentistry too monotonous, and soon engaged in Uncle Sam’s Postal Service as Superintendent of the Money Tracing Department, where lie may be found daily endeavoring to discover the hiding places of missing $10 notes sent to certain boarding-house mistresses.
Frederic. Frederic, otherwise known as Mobile, has at last “Shut de do r" on his College frivolities and settled down to the practice of his chosen profession in his home in the balmy South, surrounded by the graceful palms and beautiful palmettos of which he loved to talk so well. The merry sound of the bones is heard no more, for all his attentions are centred in the little dark-eyed Southern girl who lately won his heart The Horn of Plenty early turned in his direction, and to-day we find him one of the most successful and progressive figures in the New South.
BEDFORD’S TRIP TO NEW YORK
To break a tender bond is hard—
To break cut glass is ill—
But sadder yet it is to break One’s last five dollar bill.
Fickes. A cloud of smoke in the distance brings to my mind my old friend Fiekes. He no longer smokes the Pittsburg stogies of his College days, but now regales himself with the choice of the market.
Milford. Now to a man noted for his extreme good-will and geniality, and of whom it can honestly be said, “Nothing got ruffled save his hair!" A man, also, of remarkable records; indeed, ’twas said of him on one occasion, and on good authority, too, that so diligent was he and exacting as to take twenty-two impressions in plaster of one patient’s mouth. The patient is still alive and ready to attest to Milford’s perseverance. Mr. Milford, himself a Britisher, from the great land of the Kangaroo, is a
66staunch advocate of Anglo-American alliance, which fact he demonstrated in a practical way while in College. We prophesy for Mr. Milford a successful and happy career, unmarred by the common trials of life.
Put not your trust in money, But put your money in trust.
“ God bless the man who first invented sleep! ” So Sancho Panza said, and so say I.
A clever man was Dr. I laas, Misfortunes well he bore;
He never lost his patience till He had no patients more.
And though his practice once was large It did not swell his gains,
The pains he labored for were but The labor for his pains.
TOLLES HIGH HAT
When walking down the busy street, With new and glossy tile,
You fancy everyone you meet Admires your stunning style.
But how it makes you want a shroud When suddenly and pat There comes an exclamation loud. Where-did-you-get that hat ?
69Ginter. Our friend and worthy class-mate, Ginter, located in one of our great Western cities and was soon known as the most skillful dentist in the State. His only diversion from the cares of a large and lucrative practice is writing poetry. Finding it impossible to be present at the banquet and reunion of our Class in 1909, at Hotel Walton, he sent the following verses which reveal his poetic ability and his great fraternal heart:
Would that I were present at your table, friends,
To share your festive cheer, and all that beauty lends To grace your circle bright, replete with witty wealth ;
But since I’m miles away 1 can but drink your health.
So wasting words no more then, I’ll straight this toast respond;
Remembering, though I’m absent, that still there is a bond, A11 unseen chain of friendship to link those far apart,
And bring in closest union each true and loyal heart.
For my cherished friends and class-mates a future I forsee—
A future full of glories and crowned with victory ;
Your names far known and honored by youth and grandsire old. Your true hearts bounding gaily as swells your pile of gold.
Good cheer to all assembled—may mirth and song go round, With truth and wit and humor may every toast abound ; Though great may be the distance I stretch this hand of mine, A token of my friendship for the days of “ Auld Lang Syne.”
Newell. Gazing again into the future I saw in the dim distance one whose form, arrayed in ultra fashionable garments, appeared familiar. It is our old friend Newell, the only real, live, genuine tailor-made (?) dude in our Class. As I looked upon his imposing figure, thus gorgeously arrayed, I instinctively thought of a practical joke which some wicked college students played upon the venerable head of one of our great institutions of learning. It was the President’s custom to read a certain number of verses from the Old Testament each morning at chapel exercises. A young man discovered that by pasting two leaves of the Bible together the meaning of the passage would be entirely destroyed. The President arose and began to read with the greatest solemnity: “And Noah took unto himself a wife—turning over its pasted page, he continued—300 cubits longs, 50 cubits wide and 30 cubits high, pitch inside and out.” Pausing, he said: Young gentlemen, I have
70been a life-long student of the Bible, but 1 do not remember of ever reading this particular passage before. It explains, however, that other Scripture which says: “ Behold, we are fearfully and wonderfully made.” Newell is a success not only in his profession, but also as a dude, for he is fearfully and wondefully made.
Wilbur On the banks of the Hudson, in a palatial mansion dwells I)r. Wilbur and his numerous family. Always of an inquiring, intentional cast of mind, Wilbur compounded, shortly after graduation, a preparation which insures to every infant a complete set of teeth at birth without the painful process of cutting them, which, previous to his discovery, was so destructive ot domestic joy. By this one act Wilbur became a public benefactor, and attained wealth and fame. His hospitable mansion is ever open to his old class-mates, and he delights to dwell upon his student days in the City of Brotherly Love.
Shaw. The years have made no change in Shaw. He still wears a sombre, melancholy air. He always will regard happiness as a disease. Early in his college course he allowed the laughing machine in his anatomical structure to get rusty through disuse. We once soaked him in a joke for a month and then he came out as dry as punk. But this serious cast of countenance has been a help to him in the upbuilding of his practice, for his patients mistook it for sympathy, consequently he dwells in opulence and enjoys the shadows to his heart’s content.
Dear Poet, never rhyme at all;
But if you must, don’t tell your neighbors ;
Or five in six, who cannot scrawl,
Will dub you donkey for your labors.
This epithet may seem unjust To you—or any verse—begetter ;
Oh, must we own—I fear we must!—
That nine in ten deserves no better.
Vega and Braud, after entering College, laid aside their shooting irons and little brown jugs for birds nests soup and yokama. Their appreciation of these delicacies. early won for them an enviable spot in the heart of the
73Mayor of “Chinatown,” and they were ever welcome guests at his festive board. A fortune awaits them should they ever emigrate to the Flowery Kingdom.
Walsh, otherwise known as Dutch, has met with phenomenal success in the making of artificial dentures for the monkeys of his South African home. Mr. Walsh is a firm believer in Darwinism, and never misses an opportunity to discuss his favorite theme.
Tomlin and Newcombe. The success which attended the efforts of these gentlemen, during their College life, so impressed the Governor of New Jersey that he appointed them members of the State Board of Dental Examiners, and to-day candidates who present themselves before that body are assured of a fair and impartial up-to-date examination.
Fisher, Goddard, Stout and Klinetob. A few years after graduation, these gentlemen gave up the profession of Dentistry for a higher calling—that of the ministry. In vision beautiful, I beheld them in the gowns of full-fledged clerics. I could not but contrast the present with the past history of these grave clergymen. While in College the Decalogue which governed their conduct was :
“Thou shalt not prefer any other College to this one. Thou shalt not form unto thyself any vain ideas of thy greatness, thy knowledge or thy wisdom: for a jealous spirit watches over thee, which will visit the iniquities of thy egotism upon thee, even to the second and third years of thine attendance.”
“Thou shalt not look upon the instruction of the Professor as vain, for the Professor will not mark that student as perfect who holdeth his instruction as vain.”
“Remember all the holidays and keep them strictly.”
“In the daytime shalt thou labor and do all thy work, but the evening is sacred to parties and the ladies: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou nor thy ponies ; through the day contemplating anatomy and the mouth and all that in them is, wearies thee; wherefore, in the evening put on thy holiday attire and sally forth.”
“Write long letters to thy father and thy mother, that thou mayest enjoy the sweetmeats which they will send to thee.”
“Thou shalt not make a noise in the still hours of the night.”
“Thou shalt not wear cuffs, shoes, socks or pockets in examination.”
“Thou shalt not crib.''
“Thou shalt not prejudice the Professor against thy class-mate.”
“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s tobacco, nor his matches, nor his instruments, nor his books, nor his aid in examination, nor anything that is thy neighbor’s.”
These gentlemen now govern their conduct by the Decalogue of Moses, and the Word of a Greater than Moses. My ecstacy was somewhat marred at this juncture by the harsh sound of horses’ hoofs in the distance. I now discerned four horsemen riding furiously, and soon recognized them as that famous quartette—Northrup, Beale, Xoberbier and Kelly, who were illustrious for feats of equestrianism during their College days. 'Their motto was: Ex equis num-quatn descendants. They have exchanged their ponies of College days for blooded horses, and give every evidence of prosperity.
With visions of the future of Van Pelt, Gordon, Sharkey, Reed and others of our Class before me, I was conscious of an interruption. A white cloud slowly descended and enveloped the god-like Zeus; the music ceased, the vision vanished. A voice said, “ Marry, come to bed!” I rubbed my eyes, and realized that it was all a dream.

77WILLING VOSE, ’99
Milling Dose, '99
Willing Vose, a Junior, died on Saturday, November 20th, of hemorrhage of the lungs. He was born in June, 1872. in Cumberland, R. I., and graduated from Woonsocket High School 1892. He began the study of dentistry with Dr. Barolet, of Pawtucket, R. I., and entered the Philadelphia Dental College in the fall of 1896. During his Freshman year he proved to be an earnest and industrious student, and won the esteem of his teachers and the love of his classmates.
Upon his return this fall he was elected treasurer of his class.
His illness developed very rapidly, and in spite of the unremitting attention of Drs. Boenning and Bacon he died November 20th.
His classmates held a meeting and passed the following resolutions:
Whereas, it has pleased the Divine Ruler of the Universe to remove from our midst our late classmate, Willing Vose; and
Whereas, we, the Class of ’99 of the Philadelphia Dental College, have suffered the loss of a member whose genial companionship made him a universal favorite, where by reason of his ability and popularity, it has recently pleased the Class to elect him their honored treasurer.
Resolved, that while we bow with humble submission to the will of the Most High, we do not the less mourn his loss.
Resolved, that the Class tenders its heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved family in this, their hour of great affliction.
Resolved, that a copy of these resolutions be spread upon our minutes, sent to the family of the deceased, and published in the Stomatologist.
Therefore be it further Resolved, that we delegate Mr. Beecher, as the personal representative of the Class of ’99, to attend the obsequies of our lamented classmate.

IOI FREDERIC JOHNSON MINNAMAN, ’99©bituar
jfrebcrtc 3obn0on fllMnnaman, ’99
Frederic Johnson Minnaman was born in Waterbury, Conn., June 27, 1875. He died in the Waterbury Hospital on February 1, 1898, of typhoid fever.
His early education was obtained in the public schools of his native town, after which he entered the office of Dr. 15. W. Moyer, Dentist, where he spent a year in preparing himself for college.
In October, 1896, he entered the Freshman Class at the Philadelphia Dental College to fit himself for his chosen profession. He was making excellent progress, when he was suddenly called to the bedside of his mother, to whom he was most devotedly attached. Days and nights of anxious watching were followed by an attack of typhoid fever, and after an illness of three weeks he passed away quietly.
He was of a quiet, retiring disposition, and those who knew him learned to appreciate him. He was earnest and attentive, as a student, and much beloved by his class-mates, who most sincerely mourn his loss. At a meeting of the Class of ’99 the following resolutions were adopted:
Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God, in His infinite wisdom, to remove from our midst our fellow classmate Frederic Johnson Minnaman, and
Whereas, We, the Class of ’99, of the Philadelphia Dental College, sincerely feel the loss of one who, by his sincerity of purpose and conscientious Christian life, endeared himself to all his associates.
Resolved, That while we bow in humble submission to the will of Him “who doeth all things well.” we sincerely mourn the loss; therefore be it
Resolved, That we, his classmates, tender to his stricken family our heartfelt sympathy in this their hour of sad bereavement; and further be it
Resolved’, That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of the Class, and be published in the Stomatologist.

Again Death’s reaper doth descend,
To take another from our band,
To join the angelic choir above ;
To sing His praises in that land.
In land where stood the Charter Oak,
Disease his sturdy form laid low :
We murmur and ask—why it is ?
Thou knowest the best why it is so.
Enough to know that it is gain To him that kneels beneath the cross,
To him whose path was wont to tread That leads to God, counts death no loss.

The duty of the Dean is to turn down about seven-eighths of the Juniors’ crown and bridge work, to sign reduced rate railway certificates, to conduct the College upon an economical basis (financial) and to make the life of the student as easy as possible.
The duty of the Junior is of necessity to participate in every rush, to monopolize the blow pipes, to make a depositing plate and also to make themselves as obnoxious as possible to all during lecture hours.
The duty of the Freshmen is to assist in all Senior rushes, run vulcanizers, expose their ignorance to best advantage, in fact, do everything they ought not, and last, but not least, cater to the Seniors in order that they may be allowed to exist.
The duty of the Demonstrators is to assist in the discovery of leaky fillings, to prevent students from using material provided by themselves, to go home just at the hour when most needed, to tell as little as possible of the mysteriousness of our profession.
The duty of the Janitors is to lock the College doors (particularly on rainy evenings) and lose the keys, etc., lock patients and students in the operating room and let them out at his pleasure, to be as disobliging as possible, to require a “tip” for each attention shown, to remove his hat upon entering the arena.
The duty of the Senior is to cap lectures as often as possible, to bewilder the Freshmen, to teach the Juniors their place, and to astonish the Faculty.
n9OUR HOCKEY TEAM OF '99
ur Hockey Team they cut the ice Through all the winter months;
They have bucked teams from a distance, And they broke up many fronts.
In “Neff” we had a captain Of pugilistic fame,
And though a mite in statue He held them just the same.
Now “ Teddy” he played rover,
And when they struck his gait,
He made the lobsters hover At a record-breaking rate.
We had “ Clements ” for our “ left wing,” And ' Ritchie” for our centre,
And when it came to “shooting,”
You bet! there was no blunder.
“ Johnson ” was our “ right wing,”
And “Galbraith” was our “cover,”
The team ne’er lacked for backing For we’d hock our very liver.
Now “Sheriff” was our “cover-point,”
“ Red” “ Kitchen ” he played goal,
Our men were very lithe of joint And kept the “ puck ” on the roll.
Now, “ Park,” you are a wonder When you pick a team like this,
That crowns your name with glory And brings to us such bliss.
120THE MICROBE WAR
“We arc going to give up having Ritchie get an education.”
“ For what reason? ”
“Well, we can’t get him sterilized every morning in time to go to school.”
Dr. Van Pelt suggests a radical cure for pyorrhea alveolaris. It is first apply forcepus-de-extracti, and afterwards supply the missing numbers by a piece of bridge-work, provided the patient is able to withstand the depression (financial).
There is some talk of an X-ray apparatus for the College. We wonder if the Faculty contemplates using it on the heads of the students in final exam’s! No insinuations!
Dr. -----: “Open, please.”
Patient: (Mouth tremendously wide open.)
Dr. -----: “ Not necessarily so wide; I am going to stand on the outside.”
“The Doctor would like to see you inside,” said the maid to the caller who
was waiting in the reception room.
“ Not much!” said the startled patient, “he can’t try any X-ray racket on
ith haughty mein and gaze serene He stalks about the college,
His head erect, you’d but expect.
That it was filled with knowledge.
When on the street, sweet girls he’ll meet,
Who one and all agree,
In whispers low, as past they go,
“A Senior proud is he.”
With studied grace his hat he’ll raise,
And bow so condescending,
The frigid stare and icy air An awe-struck feeling lending.
But as they turn they quickly discern,
Plain for all folk to see,
His gay head gear—then with a sneer,
“Only a Freshman he !”

ow to keep the ball a-rolling,
And to add my little mite,
I will give this note of warning—
The Editors are all right.
Some come from old Connecticut,
So look out for Yankee tricks ;
If you don’t get wooden nutmegs,
They will try and sell gold bricks.
Abbott, our honored Editor,
Is one of this hoodoo band ;
And Warren, lady assistant,
Name changed with man who has sand.
Parker comes from Greater New York, And a merry lad is he ;
But as a business manager,
Tom Platt might well pattern. See ?
There’s Kelly, of Massachusetts,
Whose glory the world will see ;
And Shaw, the Canada wonder,
Has no second in poetry.
Next Tilton comes for fame galore ; Aspires his very best to pen ;
With Tolies, heroic assistant,
Both from land of Billy Penn.
So the Editors just get there ;
Some by hook and some by crook ;
And with that conglomeration,
Who couldn’t edit a book.
My name keep a little shady,
As I never pull a cork ;
But I am C. F C, the dentist From the Empire State New York.
•25This explains it.—Cornelius, ’99.
Miss Warren, ’99, introduces the latest and most improved method of squeezing mercury from a malgam (swallowing the'mercury).
Once upon a midnight dreary I worked hard, as usual, weary On a task that made me sore.
In a realm that’s so confounding—
On a poem I was pounding.
Which I had not tried before.
And I vowed ere it was ended—
Upon which so much depended—
I would try it nevermore.
Then 1 prayed, I plead, entreated For the muse I so much needed ;
But I blundered as before.
If I lived to tell the story,
Not for love, or gold, or glory Would I write a single poem evermore. With my soul almost despairing On the fate of poets faring,
I did write this simple lore.
127We’ve gathered to-day in Class array To meet you and greet you and farewell say ;
For the time has come when we must go Forth on Life's ocean for weal or woe,
And guide Life’s ship through wave and blast To yon haven of rest, where all anchor at last.
But we stand to-day in doubt and dread,
For the pathway of life is hard, ’tis said ;
And many a storm, and many a doubt Will beset our journey and drive us about Till we fain would believe our boat aground On the breakers and rocks all yawning around ;
But what others have done, so can we ;
We’ll man the yards and sail Life’s sea,
Though the billows and waves as mountains roll,
And the sun be darkened from pole to pole,
For where there’s a will there is always a way,
Arid success will come to him each day Who does faithful and well what befalls his lot,
And bemoan not his fate or things he has not.
But let us not pierce the future too soon,
And waste Life’s morning in thinking of noon.
For time quickly speeds with the wings of the blast,
And the glad hours of youth all too quickly are past To memory’s page, and the future is here With its pain and its sorrow, or words of good cheer,
For who can foretell what time hath in store?
We can only surmise ; merely this ; nothing more.
So we’ll look to the present, it hath pleasures we know, As we cast but a glance on the faces that glow With dimples of beauty, or beards so small You ne’er would have guessed they had any at all ; And we each truly hope this hour may have brought A fond recollection or some happy thought As you’ve heard of the deeds that ’99 wrought,
For the Class is, to-day; but to-morrow, is not.
128Yes, trials we’ve had, and battles, too ;
For three long years we have waded through. Osteology is hard, the Freshies all say,
And Anatomy haunts them by night and by day;
But they heal up the wound and display a broad grin At the thought of the day they’ll take the gold in. Anesthesia is easy ; it puts one to sleep,
But Surgery cuts with a stroke bold and deep To the seat of disease, where germs seek to hide ;
Yet when Chemistry comes they no longer abide,
For Chemistry gives us a clew to the plan How Nature, herself, joins in battle for man.
But when the shades of night had come,
And the sun his daily course had run ;
When twinkling stars their watch did keep,
And aged folk were fast asleep,
In groups of two and sometimes more,
We wandered forth as oft before To study the complex nature of man—
His muscles, and nerves, and how the blood ran.
The Professors would quiz, as they always do,
To demonstrate to us how little we knew,
And 1 wonder if Egypt ever knew such pests As afflict the Student, and are known as “tests.”
There arc times to be sad, to sorrow and grieve,
But there’s also a time your sadness to leave ;
And I would not this hour mar the brightness of life. For darkness will come, with its trouble and strife,
All too soon as we tread o’er Life’s hill and glen ; While the days that have gone will ne’er come again.
But in future years, some thirty or so,
We’ll remember the time we to College did go ;
And each past event, though large or quite small, Will return to our memory as a scene on the wall. We’ll remember each victory or failure we made,
129And conditions received in advancing a grade,
And how we had thought, when school we were through, We’d astonish the world at the deeds we would do,
For we vainly imagined a College course led To the highest of honors, as some one had said.
Nay again we’ll indulge in contests and “scraps ”
To win, or be beaten, as it may be, perhaps ;
Yet these will be shorn of their anger and rage When the future presents them to Memory’s page.
We must guide our own bark when we sail Life’s sea For the tempest will come to you and to me,
And the work we have done will look easy some day When the current of time bears us farther away,
’Tis the mirage of the desert or some sparkling bubble, That ever allures us and keeps us in trouble.
One fellow imagines himself in the swim If in Class elections his frat. works for him,
One says it is quite the best thing if you know it,
To get on the program as Senior Class poet.
Oh, sweet will it be when we’ve aged and gray,
If our memory returns to these glad College days.
And you, maidens fair, in the future to be,
When we’re scattered and gone like the sands of the sea, Won’t you cast a stray thought, or even a tear,
For the P. D. C. and the boys gathered here?
And we will in memory your faces retain,
We cannot do more, you'll be changing your name.
Yet, wherever you are, what e’er your lot be,
May the Class ’99 be sacred to thee.
And we, fellow-classmates, the world must face,
With trials and failures that will quite efface The bloom of youth, the unwrinkled brow,
For we’ll not see the freedom we’re seeing just now.
Yet I trust when we’re nearing the end of our way We can look on the Past, and be able to say:
Though our station in life be humble and low
130And the world may not know when we come or we go, Yet our lives have been strewn with duties and joys And, though old in years, yet in spirit we’re boys.
To the Faculty, and Corps of Instructors, too,
Whose kind, patient teaching has brought us all through, We bid you farewell, but will think of you later When in fancy we visit our beloved Alma Mater.
But at close of College, study, speeches and all,
When our pictures are framed and hung on the wall,
We will look to the future for pleasures you know,
But the glad song of Life must be sung as we go.
So we greet you to-night with a final “Good-bye,”
For we go forth to-morrow our future to try.
On the Ocean of Life, so broad and so deep,
Where some will sail over and others soon sleep ’Neath the billowy waves, at rest in their home,
Whither sorrow and trouble no longer can come, Though our meeting and greeting will soon here be o'er, May we greet you again on Eternity’s shore.
R. T. Hali M. S., ’99.
«3 CLASS ORATION
The reapers of the Philadelphia Dental College place their harvest for the year of ’99 before you, earnestly hoping that, as it has received the same faithful cultivation and careful attention as those of former years, it will still command the highest price in the Dental Stock Exchange.
We who are now sent out as the latest representatives of this grand old institution, and who sit here care free, for the time at least, and happy in wearing the crown of laurel for which we have so earnestly striven, must, when our short jubilee is over, remember that the mission with which we are intrusted is not one to be lightly considered.
Three years ago we had made a choice of our future life-work, and adopted this noble profession as our field of earthly labor. Having done so we next sought the records of the many institutions which afford instruction in this branch. The result of our efforts convinced us that the Philadelphia Dental College possessed all the requirements necessary for a complete and thorough
132course of instruction in Dentistry, and this seemed to be borne out by observing the success which lias attended every earnest student and faithful practitioner who looks back with loving recollections to this time-honored institution as his Alma Mater.
Three years ago! and yet it seems hardly possible, so pleasantly has the time passed, and so full of life and energy has been our every moment, always some work to be done or some subject to study which had a vital bearing on our future success. Fellow-students, these three years are but a sample of the busy life which lies before us. Time will pass just as rapidly during the years of our practice as it has here, and we will ever discover that there is something to learn and something to engage our time and attention.
Let us go hence, then, armed with the many good advices and valuable hints we have received from our teachers, and full of a determination that their confidence in us, and their expectations that we will, in future years, reflect credit on them and on our Alma Mater will be upheld.
Let us enter upon our career with the light of battle in our eyes, with that confidence born of knowledge and a thorough understanding of our work, and with the courage inspired by the certainty that Right and Justice are on the side of the earnest and conscientious worker. If we do so this life, which is all too short for the energetic and faithful mortal, will be spent in a manner which will redound to our credit and will be a source of pride to our posterity. We will have earned the respect of the multitude, and when the snows of winter descend upon our heads, the fuel burns low, and at last the flickering vital spark becomes extinct, we will be laid away, but remembered, by the noblest monument that mortal man can raise—the verdict, “a life well lived.”
As we assemble here to-day to enjoy our Class-day exercises, everything takes on a roseate hue ; we are jubilant over our successful College course, and we look forward to our future labors with hearts full of hope and trust Far be it from me to say one word which would detract from the general enjoyment, or in any way dampen the ardor of our sports. Hut as this is the last opportunity I will probably ever have of addressing you in a body, let me drop a word of caution, and suggest that even in a path of roses our feet may be pricked with thorns. We will not be able to go out from here and establish ourselves at once. The public arc not waiting to throw themselves on our necks and hail us as their deliverers. There is only one class of people anxiously waiting to see a new dental sign swung to the breeze, and they will repay you only with experience, which, while it is a great help to the beginner, does not help to satisfy the land-
33lord during your early months of practice. No ! there is an endless array of difficulties and obstacles which must be met with and overcome, and many a time the clouds on our professional horizon will be of an inky blackness, but we may take hope, as we are assured that “every cloud has a silver lining.”
We must not be cast down or disheartened by a few failures, for “all things come to him who waits,” if he does not wait with his hands in his pockets. We must strive resolutely to disarm the warrior Fate and endeavor to dictate our own destiny.
In such moments of gloomy prospective we may derive cheer and consolation by reflecting on the lives and struggles of those who have gone before. We may look back at the efforts of our Professors in their early practice and sec what they have accomplished by that spirit of bull-dog tenacity and invincible resolution which has placed them at the head of one of the noblest armies of our modern civilization, and may we not hope that by the exercise of those virtues of economy and self-denial, combined with a clean character and an upright life, we may some day assert ourselves and occupy an honored niche in the temple of fame or what is equally gratifying in the hearts of those of whom we come in contact.
When we leave this College in a few days, we will part from many pleasant faces and sever the bonds of many a pleasant intercourse, but we will take with us vows of eternal friendship and a horde of recollections which will throng our leisure hours in the years to come, and brighten with a gladsome smile a face drawn and, maybe, seamed by care and adversity.
We will remember some funny incident, some rush where we killed a Junior or two, some foot-ball game that we ought to have won, or some examination of which we were mortally afraid, and speaking of these things leads me to dwell on our College course. What a course! The Classes of previous years meet and in loud voices endeavor to show wherein they were each superior to the other, but when the name of ’99 is sounded the babel ceases and a hush as of the tomb falls on the howling mob.
It is the natural and unconscious homage of the weak to the strong. It is an expression of the awe inspired in their breasts by gazing at the hitherto unsur-mountablc heights to which we have attained.
It is the involuntary evidence of the fear that fills them when they behold the spectacle of our majestic grandeur and magnificence which strikes them dumb.
Our course has been a succession of triumphs, one long, undisturbed record
134of difficulties overcome, and obstacles successfully removed, and it is no wonder that as we issue forth to-day with our colors flying, we should feel that a new sun is born to light earth’s pathway, and even inanimate Nature joins in the shout, long may it shine and shed the beams of its brilliant lustre into the darkened recesses of man’s benighted intellect.
We came here as boys, but we depart as men. We go forth feeling that we have a mission to perform, and that we are laden with many responsibilities.
We have a duty to discharge toward our Alma Mater, the public and ourselves. We will hereafter occupy a conspicuous position in the community, and our every word and action will be noticed and commented upon. We must, therefore, keenly appreciate the importance attached to our actions and so conduct ourselves that the voice of censure may never pronounce our names, but, on the contrary, we may be what our social position demands, a moral tonic and an elevating and enlightening influence in our local circles. While our minds are filled with all these good and noble sentiments, it may be difficult to bring ourselves to the consideration of such vulgar matters as collecting bills, but we may soften the blow to our sensibilities by remembering that by enforcing the payments we are stimulating the moral nerve centres of the community, and in that way contributing to the general good.
Better get your pay anyway.
I must not encroach upon the territory of the Historian or Prophet, consequently I must let them tell of what has passed and what is to come.
We are all interested in the words of him of prophetic vision and anxious to hear how he reads our future, but let us all sincerely hope that whatever fate has in store for us that no member of the Class of '99 will ever be guilty of any action that may reflect discredit upon his Alma Mater or his profession, but that when the star of ’99 is added to the Philadelphia Dental College constellation it will shine as brilliantly and lastingly as either its predecessors or successors, and that the Class will always live up to the high principles which it has espoused.

141OUR OWN BATTLE
We came first in Class together,
And were mustered into line In eighteen hundred ninety-six,
To graduate in ’99.
We’ve been called to face the cannon,
And our exam’s from time to time Have crushed many in the battle For success in ’99.
But the battle for a lifetime
To stop pain and ease the mind Of our brothers with the toothache,
Is for the Class of ’99.
In the din and strife of battle,
Let us present no broken line ;
Keep our ranks closed and in order,
O valiant Class of ’99.
Forward ! battle the still engage Till victory, with success enshrined,
Shall stand upon Fame’s battlements And hail our Class of ’99.
When Death’s cold hand shall muster out, And book closed up by Father Time, May God then say, “ Thy work well done, O faithful Class of ’99.
C. F. C., ’pp.SPECIMENS FROM OUR
Bacterialogical and Histological Laboratory Explanatory Introduction
THE germs presented below were not all cultivated in the same medium, for we found that what was suited to one was utterly unfit for another, therefore we have endeavored to give to each one his designated food.
For example we found that “Senior" germs develop best in alcohol (ethylic), whereas the bacteria Freshmen require milk, and plenty of it. The “Senior" germ in milk seems to curdle the medium and give a sort of smoky blue tint The bacteria “Freshmen” dies and melts immediately when placed in alcohol.
The “Junior" microbe gives little trouble in cultivating, being facultative, living equally well in Freshmen or Senior medium.
As yet no germs have been discovered that would develop in H2 O. Specimen No. I, on Ager Slant:
In this test-tube we have bacteria, seen in pairs only, called the diphlo-cocci Manning-et-Mansen. The development of this specimen is particularly marked. Specimen No. 2, on alcohol:
In this test-tube is another cultivation of the same germ, namely: the diphlo-cocci Tolles-que-Paul. The cultivation of this germ is a matter of comparative ease during the day time, but in the evening much difficulty is experienced. Specimen No. 3, on alcohol (methylic):
This bacterium, best cultivated in an atomizer, is called the diphlo-cocci Warren-Douglas. This germ develops very rapidly, and sometimes explodes into flames.
Specimen No. 4, on electric fluid :
This germ, the diphlo-cocci Skinner-que-Wilbur, is best cultivated in a battery. The phenomena observed in this specimen is that each is decidedly positive.
Specimen No. 5, on pink tea and red lemonade :
M3This specimen, the strepto-cocci Osgood-Gamble-Davies-Russell developed spontaneously in the Junior “ Lab.” Immediately upon discovery it was corralled and is being carefully watched for further developments.
Specimen No. 6, on raw meat:
Caution : Always use plyers in holding this specimen, as the test tube is apt to be hot. We here exhibit a pathological germ which causes fermentation of medium. The peculiar germ—the Coccus-Peacock-us.
Specimen No. 7, on hash :
This germ is very difficult of development, on account of the rapacity with which it devours the medium, and also because of the particular medium required. It belongs to the cocci family, that is always found in groups, called the Staphylo-coci, Bedford que Steiner que Vega et Braud. We consider this name fit to rank, in length, with that awe-inspiring muscle, the levator labii superoris alaeque nasi.
Our next specimens are cultures which have been placed upon glass slides, and are best examined under a one-eighth inch objective, the bacilli Stevenson, Stout and Coe, at first sight, show merely a rod-shaped mass of proloplosm, apparently endowed with life, but when placed under a higher power of the microscope, a finer capillary growth is noticed around the oral orifices. While this growth is increasing they arc usually dormant, but as soon as it is developed they are apt to become vicious, and therefore unsafe to exhibit. For this reason we are obliged to show them in the developing stage. We have other bacteria of this Class, but owing to our lack of microscopes possessing higher objective powers we are unable to exhibit such specimens as Tilton, Sharkey, Rose, Fischer, Goddard and many others. And as all the other cultures are not as yet placed upon the glass slides, we arc obliged to close our list here.

Cribs tor examinations.PROF. GREENBAUM vs. GOLD FILLINGS
A look of anger on his face,
His probe o’er all the margins trace Until it stops ; a little space A check is found,
A death-like feeling o’er me steals,
From crown of head to both my heels, My hands clinch tight, as it reveals A faulty filling.
He looks at me with eyes of fire,
My "pores all open and perspire,
That awful feeling, oh ! so dire,
I pray for death.
He sees me strangling there in fright,
His eyes they seem as black as night, Does he perceive my awful plight ?
I’m sure he does.
And does he gloat with inward glee ?
As he looks down on little me ;
There is a change, just one degree, Upon his face.
His voice is low and awful grave As like the ocean’s mournful wave,
He says this filling will not save This poor, frail tooth.
Then he with lips compressed and tight, Inserts his probe with all his might,
And then I look—oh! what a sight,
My filling gives.
A twitch, a twirl, and all is o’er,
The gold drops out upon the floor,
My senses leave, I know no more.
I’m in a faint.
But soon I feel a kindly slap Between my shoulders on my back,
It wakes me from the heav’n sent nap, And there he stands.
His eyes they have a kinder light,
I wonder then if all is right,
Have I escaped that awful plight?
That I was in.
He smiles a little, then he speaks.
His words, oh! can I them repeat?
I stand once more upon my feet,
For thus he spake.
’Twas for your good I did this thing,
I know ’twas hard, but it will bring
That practice dear for which you came, Now doti't feel bad.

Sh—w had a patient; and, strange to say,
Some hypertrophied gum must be burned away ;
So of trichloracetic he put on enough
To make the face of the patient look “mighty tough.”
He smeared it on nose, lips and gum,
And the patient looked as if she had “ been on a bum.”
Then he said to a demonstrator standing near,
“ Will you please, for a moment, come here ? ”
When the face of the patient the demonstrator did see.
Something to himself he said besides “ Hully Gee ! ”
And to clap the climax, which was rather rough,
Said Sh—w, “ Do you think that I put on enough ?"
“ Do you drink at all ? ”
“ Oh, a glass occasionally ! ”
“ How occasionally?”
“ Well, as often as someone buys it lor me.”

147TO VAN P
n his Junior year a student named Van,
Early in September his work began.
He worked with might and he worked with main, His object an early excuse to gain.
By March fifteenth his work must be done,
But Van worked on like a “ son-of-a-gun.”
“ Now seven months is a good long time To finish your requirements and finish them fine ”
So thought Van one bright sunny day.
Says he “to-morrow I’ll take a holiday.”
But the holiday lasted until “Xmas” was near,
And Van realized it was the end of the year.
So in his Junior year, this student named Van,
In March realized his work but began.
And Van he fumed, and Van he swore,
That lie had no time over his books to pour.
His work must pass that day by noon,
The seven long months had passed too soon.
And a demonstrator, seeing him sweat,
Said “That fellow needs help, that I’ll bet.”
And helping Van he reprovingly said,
“ Did you spend the rest of the term in bed ?’
Van looked at his watch as his face grew red,
Why, I’ve fifteen minutes yet, he said.
In the leading professions the ladies excel,
In our class there is one that does beat As an inventor she “beats the band,”
For an amalgam squeezer she first uses her hand ; Next the chamois she places ’tween teeth so white. And the rest of the mercury expells by one bite.
THE STUDENT'S ELDORADO
Of an Eldorado I know
Where there’s money and gold galore, “ Money to loan ” is on the window Three balls hang over the door.
This place is kept by an Uncle old,
My instruments to him 1 send,
And then the dear old soul I know Money to me will lend.

ECHOES FROM THE DEMONSTRATORS
“Don’t waste time in taking off rubber-dam (zip); this’s the way I do it.”OUR PROFESSORS
Our Dean, a very genial man,
Is sure to all his models keep ;
And when he enters the lecture-room, The silence is profound and deep.
Professor Guilford, likewise Pop,
Is always sure on time to l e,
E’en though he has to take a cal)
To have Flagg note each absentee.
Professor Howell, our honored chemist, Gives us the easiest of all For chemistry is but a cinch Until examinations fall.
There’s Prof. Boom, his chief assistant, Who’s very kind to all the boys,
For it’s in the lower regions Where he gave us all our joys.
Prof. Greenbaum is the one Whom all the boys desire to please, For when your fillings are O. K.
He signs your card and you’re at ease.
But when he tries to pull them out,
And they upon the floor do fall,
We curse the day of our sad fate,
And do not think we’re all in all.
Prof. Boenning, heroic surgeon,
With his free, bold, deep incision, Made us tremble in our boot-tops When for exams, we faced his gun.
But we thank the stars above us, Although we staggered 'neath the load.
That we came out victorious,
And never more will feel his goad.
Stelhvagen, beloved Professor,
We his dear children, said to be ;
And his words they are dead easy,
Also his physiology.
Burchard, our revered Professor,
His equal would be hard to find,
His pathos, logos and therapeucin Show he’s a man with mighty mind.
But as he wields his boomerang We quaked, we shaked and we trembled
That we escaped so dire a fate
We shook hands with all assembled.
Prof. Fritz he reigns supreme And pronounces the Freshman’s doom.
In exams, of P. S. of A.
And in the dissecting room.
Boys of Prof. Bacon are afraid Mighty doses of germs he gives,
Staphylococus pyogenes aureus He who survives is glad he lives.
And as our college days are o’er This sentiment we all can give,
It’s echo sound from shore to shore He who survives is glad he lives.

On Saturday noon of each week, during the session at the Philadelphia Dental College, the students arc favored with a highly instructive clinic on Oral Surgery by Prof. Henry C. Boenning.
Patients suffering from lesions about the head, oral cavity and neck are skillfully treated and a minute and exhaustive discourse as to the history of the cases, the tissues involved, their pathology and proper treatments surgically and medically, is given.
Students, when graduated from the Philadelphia Dental College, go to their respective locations prepared and legally empowered to practice dental surgery, and the instructions received at the oral clinic will give a greater breadth to their knowledge, and a wider field of usefulness to the practice of their profession. They are indeed not only competent dental practitioners but oral surgeons as well.

HOTEL DE HUEY CHAPTER
DON'T READ THIS
This Chapter was instituted A. D. eighteen hundred and ninety-seven, in what is known as one of the students’ homesp), namely, “ Hotel De Huey.” It was organized with the sole and original intent of securing “easy” individuals for initiation into its mysteriousness, the principal and main object in view being to furnish amusement for the Chapter members, which members being Juniors, were in dire need of something, by way of diversion, to occupy their mind and time during their spare(?) moments, when not otherwise engaged (by the way, the engagement of any members of this ancient(?) and orient order has yet to be announced), though rumor has it that our first, last and only initiate is reported as having symptoms, which symptoms being produced by a peculiar susceptibility to such micro-organisms as micropyaemicus.
The first man whose name our honorable body considered was one who was thoroughly a Man, Sir! said Man-Sir being approached and found desirous of becoming one of us.
After allowing sufficient time to elapse to gather our initiatory para-pharnalia, institute order for such, etc., we then notified our candidate-elect
Further proceedings being a secret (to be communicated to every one), we will not burden you with details, though they were undoubtedly very entertaining. Ask Man-Sir.

79Philadelphia Dental College Foot-Ball TeamThe foot-ball season of ’98 opened with about eighteen or twenty available men. After a considerable amount of weeding out, a team was organized that succeeded in winning the inter-collegiate championship of Philadelphia. We claim the distinction of putting on the gridiron a stronger team than was ever before gotten up in our College.
Orie O. Tolies, of Penn, a member of the Class of ’99, was elected manager; J. C. Ritchie, of Brockville, Ontario, was made captain, and it was through his excellent work that our team became so proficient. On account of our late war with Spain, a number of our players (who were heroes at the front) were late in returning to College, so our first game was not played until October 22, ’98.
J. C. Ritchie, ’99, who won distinction on the Hrockville, Ont, team, winners of the inter-collegiate championship of Canada, held the position of fullback.
W. N. Brown, 1901, of Massachusetts, a sprinter and an ex-half-back on the Newburyport, Mass., High School team, played right-half. Brown received medals for making several 60-yard runs.
C. I. Foote, 1901, of California, formerly a quarter-back on San Diego, Y. M. C. A. and University of Southern California teams, played left-half.
Richard Kitchen, of Warren, Pa., an all- round athlete, and a recipient of numerous medals won in athletic contests, was given the position of quarterback. Unfortunately, Kitchen was badly injured in our first game, and afterward was obliged to play “sub.”
The position of quarter was then credibly filled by R. T. Kenyon, 1900, of Syracuse, X. Y., who formerly held the position of quarter-back and captain on the Syracuse Medical College team.
Clyde H. Stocking, 1900, of California, played centre. Stocking for several years has enjoyed the distinction of being known as the best centre in California.
1S9James P. Maney, ’99, of Oswego, N. Y., made an excellent showing as right-end. Maney was a hard worker, and deserves much credit.
II. T. Sterling, 1901, of Canada, late tackle on the Fredrickton, N. B. team, filled the position of right-tackle.
Allic N. Osgood, '99, of Maine, one of the best known guards in the East, played left-guard. Osgood covered himself with glory, and won the thanks and hearty cheers of the entire College by his great work.
F. G. CIcevc, 1901, heavyweight champion of Australia, did clever work as right-guard.
M. G. Hueston, 1901, of London, Ontario, played left-tackle, and by his work developed into an excellent player.
K. E. Payne, 1901, of California, a well-known player in the West, filled the position of left-end.
Substitute positions were filled by R. R. Kitchen, H. T. Pierce, T. G. Longley and J. A. Amyott.
Manager Tolies is proud of his boys, and too much praise cannot be given him for his efficient and successful management of the team.

190OUR FOOT-BALL TEAM.
e know we have a foot-ball team That ranks among the first, And like a badly swollen bean The “ rooters ” fairly burst.
And if by chance you’re looking for A game with the Penn Dental, You will very quickly realize They’re not worth a continental.
We tried to play them this year On the nineteenth of November,
But they came around on Thursday And saitl they would surrender.
Our team it had the same effect As would a case of rum,
For had we ever met their team We would have put them on the bum.
If! if!! squealed all their lobsters At every game they lost,
Had we had our best players Our line you’d ne’er have crossed.m

'Philadelphia. 'Dental College ’99 Hockey TeamThe first hockey club in the history of the College was formed December 10, 1897. Since then hockey has proved a sport of great attraction to those who wish something to replace the interest centered in foot-ball. At a meeting, held November, 1898, the following officers were elected :
Prof. H. C. Boenning, Honorary President.
W. S. Bahner, '99, President. W. J. Galbraith, ’99, Sec’y and Treas.
E. B. Neff, 99, Captain. H. C. Parker, ’99, Manager.
The team was admitted into the Philadelphia Hockey League, which comprises University of Pennsylvania, Wayne, Havcrford, Quaker City and Philadelphia Dental.
The line-up for this year’s team comprised the following men: E. B. Neff (Capt.), R. R. Kitchen, W. J. Galbraith, J. C. Ritchie, W. P. Sherriffj E. Johnston, Clemons and M. G. Hueston.
97So far this year the following games have been played :
Philadelphia Dental College .......................................2
Philadelphia Dental College........................................6
Philadelphia Dental College.......................................3
University of Maryland............................................2
Philadelphia Dental College ......................................7
Too much cannot be said of the team in general, but some little stress should be laid on our noble little captain. He has won a name for himself as a hockey player, and, although he met with several slight accidents, he is “still in the ring ” awaiting the next scheduled game, which will be with the University of Pennsylvania shortly after this volume goes to press.
Ritchie and Johnston also made an excellent showing, and deserve special recognition.
The prospects for a team next year are still better than heretofore, with Johnston, Sherriff, Hucston and Clemons as a nucleus, saying nothing of the “ hockey germs ” in the Freshman Class not yet developed.
It is a recognized fact to the people of Philadelphia that when the P. D. C.’s lined up for a game they made an excellent showing as expert hockey players, and presented costumes excelled by none, the costumes consisting of jersey and stockings of College colors, with a diamond P on the jerseys, together with white duck trousers. The contrast was excellent.

DELIVERED AT ACADEMY OF MUSIC, PHILADELPHIA
APRIL 7th, 899
By CHARLES N. REINIG
After successfully struggling for three years with the serious problems of dental science, we are assembled to-night to witness the culmination of our collegiate career, and to receive from our Faculty, who have had our interest at heart, the final words of parting and God-speed that will follow us in all our undertakings.
To-night we are clothed with honors ; we wear them proudly and with the consciousness of having won the vestments and insignia that prove our right to enter the ranks of our distinguished profession.
At this hour of our triumph our hearts throb with the thoughts of our elevation. We are elated, perhaps, beyond measure, but on the morrow we will step down from this pedestal of glory, and, among our fellow-men, strive to administer to them the skill that has been taught us.
Is it not then, my friends, a fitting occasion of joy to witness this, the birth of our new career, and to place ourselves upon that broad plane of professionalism in its truest light, and to feel that grave sense of responsibility which has been inculcated in our minds and hearts by those who will watch our welfare with the same zeal that the mother watches the growth and development of her child.
We should not forget that there is a sterner side to these ceremonies; they mean more to us than the conferring of degrees by the eminent President of our College ; it means more than the splendid reception which is accorded us tonight, which is marked by the friendly grasp, the good-will and congratulations which are showered upon us by our friends. It means the carrying out of those principles of ethics, skill and teachings that have been propounded to us throughout our pleasant College career, that we may make the name of Doctor of Dental Surgery a title to be respected and honored and revered. Therefore, with becoming modesty and true dignity, which constitutes genuine professional pride and attainments, we apply ourselves unremittingly to the life-work before us, leaving to the good sense of our fellow-citizens such praise and endorsement as our skill and services may command.
200We arc embarking upon the sea of life full of bright hopes, and may our career be as happy as our hearts are on this day of launching. Troubled waters and winds of disappointment may overtake us on our voyage—for who amongst us has not experienced such, even during our College lives—but with a firm hand on the helm of knowledge we will soon reach the port of success.
At times we will, perhaps, consider our future as a vast interminable void. Yet it is not a cheerless one, for it is full of pleasant dreams and visions and glorious hopes that will, we trust, some day bring its just reward.
We are, as you know, the last Class to graduate this century; and what a wonderful century it has been, inasmuch as within the brilliant constellation of discovery and invention of the past hundred years ; the wonderful discoveries of our fellow-dentists and scientists shine forth as a star of the first magnitude.
The marvelous strides that have been made in the past few years in our profession is unequalcd by few, if any, of the other professions, and places us upon a par with medicine, law and theology.
True the men who undertook to master the complex problems of dentistry twenty-five years ago were endowed with the same perceptive faculties, and, perhaps, possessed with the same mechanical skill that is manifested by the graduate of to-day, but the advanced opportunities of bringing to light these once difficult problems, and the rational procedure of the latter-day dentists, are monuments to dental science.
Prof. Boenning has said, “The man who graduates to-day is vastly better qualified to practice his profession than the intellectual giant and master mind of thirty years ago,” and while the recent graduate may not be as great in collective attainments as to the master mind that preceded him, nevertheless he stands higher in ability to practice his profession—he can see more of its possibilities and apply them simply because he stands on the shoulders of the mental giant of a quarter of a century ago.
We can scarce predict the advancement of dentistry in the years to come. Still we have followed a line of study that will the better aid us in solving the new problems and keeping in touch with the lastest achievements.
Although we have closed our books and look with pride upon the scroll marking the completion of the various branches, yet can we conscientiously lay aside our books and refuse to be affiliated with the students of dentistry? Nay; we would be ungrateful to our calling should we allow ourselves to become
201antiquated and fossalized, and whether isolated in a small hamlet or tossed about in the maelstrom of life in a great city, we must struggle to grasp all that is new and great and noble and bring them to the uses of our profession.
To you, our beloved Faculty, we cannot say enough in praise for your thoroughly interesting efforts to make us masters of our profession. Perhaps, in time, for want of constant association with our classmates, we may forget them, yet not so with you, for in the midst of our trials and in the triumphs of our achievements the knowledge you have so clearly spread before us will ever serve to light our pathway, and many times in our future career will our thoughts revert to our happy and profitable college days when in laboratory, lecture room and dispensary we were moulding ourselves for our future, aud we will ever cherish the names and teachings of Profs. Guilford, Boenning, Stellwagen, Burchard, Greenbaum and Howell, who have been instrumental in making our calling a successful one. Nor can we forget our patient and persistent demonstrators to whom we owe so much for the practical side of our training.
The good work of the Class of ’98, in establishing a class-book and class-day exercises, has been emulated ; yes, I may say excelled, by the Class of '99, and we may feel justly proud of these achievements which will stand as a monument to our Class.
In the midst of all these happy faces to-night there are four who, had not the Divine hand of Providence taken them from their earthly cares, would have joined us in our happy commencement.
The grim hand of death took our beloved classmates Minnaman, Vose, Babcock and Sill in the prime of their promising manhood, and we mourn their loss deeply.
To you, my dear classmates, is the parting the saddest, for we will no longer see the smiling faces in the laboratory and lecture room, no more assemble in the haunts so dear to college men.
We take our departure and journey to the four points of the compass, many to foreign lands where the fame of our College has gone before, but whether on land or sea, in orient or empire, you will carry with you those fond recollections that have been made so pleasant during our three short years. Be a pride to your College, an honor to your classmates, and may the omnipotent power guide you through life in that same peaceful harmony that existed during our College course.
And now, my friends, I bid you a fond and lasting farewell.

tives .. ocsiaes a goodly delegation from
We record with pleasure the evidence of patriotism shown by those of our Class who endured privations and risked death in fighting under the flag in our late war. Fortunately our heroes have returned unharmed from the field of battle and arc among us again receiving our admiration and praise.
Although we notice the absence of many familiar faces this year, we are pleased to welcome our new members who have seen fit to join with us in the study of dentistry.
Many of our foreign members are laboring under great disadvantages in having to overcome the difficulties of the English language besides mastering the intricacies of our different scientific branches.
No remarks concerning our Class are complete without mention being made of our co-students, the ladies, whose charming presence has that refining influence upon us which nothing else can lend. We are fortunate in having several of the gentle sex among our members, and their industry, skill and perseverance give us an example that we may well emulate.
The relation between the Class and the Faculty and the Demonstrators have always been cordial and a source of pleasure, we trust, to both sides.
2oSMuch new work and many changes have been introduced for the Class of 1900 to meet with, and in each instance success has crowned our efforts.
The Class is greatly pleased at the satisfactory manner in which the officers of its Freshman year filled their respective stations, and extends its thanks to :
Mr. Alfred P. Lee, President;
Mr. Chas. P. Holland, Vice-President;
Miss Marion C. Hertz, Secretary;
Mr. Joseph S. Roberts, Treasurer;
and we trust that they may have pleasant recollections of their official experience.
Viewing with satisfaction a gratifying past, we are inspired to look forward to a pleasing and successful termination of our College career.

225REDUCTION OF PRICES
readers of the “ Dental Cosmos ” and of our various Catalogues notice frequent and large reductions in the price of our manufac tures, and when a considerable reduction is made the question is sometimes asked, “ Why could you not sell at this price before ?” This is a very natural question, and for the satisfaction of the buyer it is well that it should be fairly answered. The production of new goods involves many elements of cost of which the consumer knows nothing. Most articles that aie new in design are patented by the inventor, who is seldom the manufacturer ; these patents securing to the inventor the exclusive right to make, sell, or use the article for the term of seventeen years, have a marketable value, and the owner usually sells to some manufacturer who will give him a satisfactory price.
This price is often many thousand dollars for an article which, taken singly, would be of small value, and the buyer can only hope to realize a profit by very large sales.
The next cost to the manufacturer is the development of his purchase, as it is usually in a crude condition as received from the inventor, requiring expensive experimental work and costly special tools to fit it to be offered for sale. Many things used by the dentist have cost the manufacturer many thousands of dollars before the first perfect sample was completed. In order to make the new product known to the profession it must be widely advertised, and this another heavy expense to be added to all the others that precede the first sale.
It would be absurd to think of selling the first perfected article for what it has cost. The only way to secure a return from this investment, is to add a small part of this cost to the price of each article sold.
If the estimate of the number of articles likely to be sold is not too large, the business may be profitable ; but it often occurs that the demand is much less than was expected, and then the manufacturer finds his investment partly or wholly lost.
If this estimate has not been excessive, in a reasonable time, the first heavy expenses will have been paid, and the price can be readjusted at a considerable reduction. Another cause which facilitates reduction is improved methods in manufacture, and improved tools and machinery. This leads to saving of time and time is the great element of cost in all manufactures.
The desire to extend his business by increased sales leads the wise business man to reduce prices as far and as fast as conditions will warrant, and the consumer, without knowing the cause, is gratified by smaller bills rendered.

23 IVORY’S LABIAL CLAMPS
I show here a Special Clamp Forcep for spreading these or any of my clamps, though any forcep will operate the above. The side cuts show the application ns they catch in the notches on either side of the jaws of the clamp.
These four clamps constitute a complete set of my Labial Clamps which arc applied by a forcep. There nre very few marginal cavities that these clamps will not expose; No. 9 being most universal; No 6 for Superior Centrals and Cuspids; No. 15 for Inferior Incisors, and No 16 for cavities extending wide on the face of the tooth.
MANNER OF APPLICATION
In adjusting these clamps to a tooth, carry the Lingual Jaw to a point beyond the bulb of the enamel at the margin of the gum, holding it there while the clamp is tilted outwardly till the Labial law catches the tooth beyond the margin of the decay ; thus it will be noticed that the Lingual Jaw acts like a pivot as it bears aga nst the inner side ol the neck of the tooth, while the outer jaw is being tilted forward on the tooth. After the clamp is in place it can often be forced still higher by pressing with an instrument against the Labial Jaw; some doctors take a burnisher and get under the jaw aud cant it back, as any pressure here not only pushes the clamp higher on the neck of the tooth, but tends to strengthen or tighten the hold of the clamp to the same.

More than one-third of a century of most vigorous and useful life has been meted out to your beloved Alma Mater. During this period Dentistry has made greater advancement than was achieved in the whole previous history of the Profession. Count yourselves, therefore, highly favored, Class of ’99, that your parchments have been earned and awarded in this, the last lap of the closing Nineteenth Century.
Our business was established in 1869, thus a little less than a third of a century measures its life. From the first, steady growth marked our progress ; nothing of the mushroom character about it, but none the less lasting on that account. A mighty impulse, however, was given to our business when, by purchase of the Wilmington Dental Mfg. Co.’s factories, we were enabled the better to meet the wants of our patrons.
We thank you for the patronage extended to us during your attendance at College ; we are grateful for this practical expression of appreciation. Having grasped the honors of a generous Alma Mater, you are now concerned about
Success and distinction in the practice of your Profession. Remember, you cannot do either yourself or patients justice without a WELL, though not necessarily expensively furnished office, and strictly reliable tools and materials. Our utmost effort and every resource of our establishment has been employed to supply the ever increasing demand of the Student and Practitioner with dependable Dental Goods, be it, therefore, for Undergraduate or Graduate, our stock is satisfying, because comprehensive enough to meet every demand.
We Cordially Ask You, with your friends, to visit our Depot. Is it too early yet to anticipate your needs? You've heard of the successful achievements of the “early bird,” haven’t you? you will find here every courtesy and convenience awaiting you that tends to make looking or buying a pleasure. You’ll Profit by Proving this.
