Preface JN presenting this book to the Students, Faculty, Alumni, and Friends of the Tipton High School, we beg that so far as is possible, all matter herein con- tained shall be received with charitable forgiveness and its spirit justly interpreted. We do not claim to have compiled a classic, we only hope that onr efforts in their sum total will give an insight into the life of Tipton High. If v e have even ap- proached our aim we are satisfied. Our work has not been all play. We have had our troubles along with the rest of mankind. If we have pleased, we too are pleased. If we have angered, we have been misunderstood, and the fault lies in our faculty of expression. In conclusion, we wish to thank the members of our own class who have been faithful and we hope that this book which we herewith submit to " Tipton High School, " as a token of our love and loyalty, will rebound to the credit, not of our- selves, but of the class to which we are thankful to belong. TipToNiAN Staff of the Senior Class. A Toast It is with pleasure that we look back to the years we liave spent in High School. We are exultant because we have overcome all the difficulties that beset our way. Yet this feeling of exultation is now mingling with one of certainty of future success. We believe that with the same determination with which we have fought our way through the High School, we shall be able to win out in whatever we attempt. We shall miss the hands that have guided us through our School career, but we feel we have acquired strength enough to guide ourselves. Then let us give three cheers for Tipton High School to whom the credit of this feeling belongs. The Class of ' 09.

This Learning! Whot a Thing it Is. Class History IJTE, the class of 1909, first embarked upon our long journey of High School rw life in the old building on West Jefferson street. We will never forget the feelings both of pride and timidity which we experienced as we mounted the creaking stairs to the Assembly room with our diplomas under our arms. But it does not take long for Freshmen to get into the spirit of the school, and soon we were the boldest class to be found. As Freshmen are wont to do we watched ev- ery move which our adored Seniors made. The following day after the Seniors first class meeting a very scrawly notice appeared on the board for a Freshman class meeting. After much loud discussion in which disorder reigned we managed to elect Claire Williams for our President. This was perhaps the happiest year of our life notwithstanding those Latin declensions and the dreadful — 7x9. But our most miserable experience was the quarterly examinations, for how could thirty- six carefree Freshmen be expected to escape those dreadful demerits. How soon the first year of our High School life rolled around! Almost before we could realize it we were Sophomores. Now we truly did think we were some body. The poor Freshmen who succeeded us fared even worse than w e, for, as our name indicated we were " Wise F ools " and wished to display our authority over the Freshmen. Our President for this year was Roderick Renner, who dis- tinguished himself as a natural born leader — of pranks. Our mischief-loving boys painted ' 09 on the H. S. building in black paint. The faculty becoming angry threatened to expel them if they did not take it off. The next night about a half dozen boys might have been seen over at the old building scratching away with all their might. Fearing some one would see them, they made quick work of it and left. Next day there was still an 09 on the building. The boys had not taken into consideration that the building was at one time red. As Juniors we spent our most uneventful year. We worked some and idled more. We had fully expected to get into the new building hut were disappointed in this. During this year we were initiated into the Oral Composition society and sorry to say, we lost our worthy class President, Earl Jorden, who died from an attack of stage fright. What change time has wrought. Out of thirty-six rollicking Freshmen only ten remain. However during the four years many new members were added until now we number in all twenty. We have completed that journey which, as Freshmen, seemed unending. Now we look back and it seems but yesterday since we looked across the long room at the Seniors, never daring to hope that at some time we might fill that honorable position. Now as we go forth to our separate stations in life, we wish to say a few words of praise for the members of the faculty who have labored (we hope not in vain) to make us able to go forth and take up those burdens which we are called upon to bear.

Junior Class History. rHE present Junior class entered the Tipton High School in the fall of Nineteen hundred and Six with about fifty members. We escaped the notice usually bestowed upon poor Freshies, as all the pupils were interested in becoming ac- quainted with the new members of the faculty. We chose royal purple and gold as our class colors and the white rose as a class flower with " Work and Win " as our motto. We accomplished the Freshman work in such a manner that the greater part of our class was promoted to the Sophomore year. In this year " Fide et Aniore Vicimus ' was chosen as the class motto. We now gave up some of the frivolities of Freshmen and became serious minded students. In the course of this as well as the Junior year, our class was strengthened by the addition of several new members who are doing very creditable work. September of Nineteen hundred and Eight found our class in a splendid new school building with a membership of thirty-three. As Juniors, we have during this year taken up our work more earnestly than heretofore, each member hoping to complete the High School course in Nineteen hundred and Ten. History says, " Happy is the nation whose annals are brief. " If this can be appHed to a class of industrious High School students our class ought to be very happy indeed for during the past three years of its work it has made a rather un- eventful record. Occasionally, however, the attention of even " a hard working Junior " is attracted from his work. Only recently Bethel Templeton, one of our number, won our attention and admiration when after a heroic struggle in the sea of mathematics, he suddenly rose above the waves and is now one of the most pro- gressive members of the class. Also we have a distinguished group of students who follow the teaching of Civil Government with a vim that predicts future re- cognition for them in the pohtical world. Last but not least, we have James Hogan who in true Irish spirit keeps us all from taking a too serioas view of high school life. Guided by a faculty devoted to the best interests of all and with just enough variety of temperament and talent to encourage us to our best efforts, our class has the opportunity of entering and passing through the Senior year, a credit to our school. In " Fide et Amore ' let us conquer.

The Sophomore Class of 1911. rHE Sophomore Class of 1911 is composed of about tliirly-five members. Near- ly all of us were in tlie Freshman year together, in the old High School build- ing. This building is indeed very dear to us and many things have happened on its premises which we cannot easily forget but as it was very small and unaccomo- dating in many ways, we are better able to appreciate the value of this splendid new edifice in which we daily take up our work. Though, it is true, we were very fresh and green when we first took our books. Latin, Algebra, Geology, etc., for the terms work, yet we believe that we have al- ready proven that our w ork has not been done in vain. The plant, which in the beginning had only green leaves along its stem has, as time went by, grown a flower in the axil of each leaf, which has just began to bloom. We should not at- tribute this advancement in knowledge which we have made too much to our own w ork. All our influence and existing conditions are of the very best. In the first place we have the best of teachers. Then they are given a better opportunity to teach us because we are divided into two sections, giving the individual more time to explain what he knows, and to ask questions when he needs information. Also our text books and things to work with are as up-to-date as can be bought. But what would all these circumstances amount to if it were not for the class? Though we are all stars and shine out brilliantly in one subject or another, it is worth the while to mention a few names in particular, as for instance, Leonard Pence, who is smarter (perliaps) than our learned history teacher. Prof. G. G. Dodds. Harold Patten has become famous among us by his English recitations and Bertha Porter by her quickness in Algebra and Geometry. John D. is a won- der in Latin. Latin is interesting to us. though it might not h if it were not for the story in it, and most of all. Miss Towne ' s help and encouragement. She keeps our spirits up when we are translating a very difficult passage, for we are all in the habit of walking to Latin. It is already seen that none of us are very apt to become bot- anists, but just the same Mr. Hafford keeps us busy and assures us that when we finish our course we will be able to na::ie any pl.mt he should describe to us. If we won ' t we have a think coming. We will also be able to write out an exact copy of our text book in Botany. History never gets draggy because when we get to thin ice and feel somewhat discouraged, Mr. Dodds comes to the rescue and ex- plodes some interesting and helpful stories, which blow us to solid ground again- If he cannot impress the events on our minds by such means, he tries more effec- tive ones, in which he is teacher not instructor. The English class is always wide- awake and Miss Morgan never leaves any points oi discussion covered but goes through with them all. making it truly absorbing. By the aid of Stevenson ' s Trea- sure Island, Scott ' s Marmion and classics our composition work has been taken with little bad effect. Algebra and Geometry though last named is studied with most zeal and enthu iasum. Oar teicher, Mr. Highley his stated to u-;that we have done somewhat better in Algebra than any preceding class. In addition to this we h ive members of great skill in out door exercises. As, for example, Ray Glenn, Merle Brown. Dudley Wagstaff in foot ball. After sum- ming everything up we have come to the conclusion, that, though we are probably least in number of all the classes, neverthless we are not last in ability and per- severance and are goins to prove it in the next two years.

As far as the customary green goes, color this class exceeded all former records taken from the dusty archives of the ancient past, being the class fhich claims in a natural way two green substances unfortunatly named by their parents Mary and Myrtle. In the early part of the present school year a meeting was held for the avowed pur- pose of electing officers. After much wrangling pro and con they elected for their leader a person of harmless and inoffensive character and not responsible in any manner whatever for his actions. The other offices were distributed much in the manner of prize packages at a bargain sale. Little can be said of this class either for or against, except that they have a well developed class spirit and prospects of future greatness. rrcshman Class Roll CLYDE BARE LESTER BOHANNON PAUL BOWERS HOLLY BRICE CHARLOTTE CARROLL CLIFFORD CORYELL ODNA COX CECELIA CULLEN ENOLA DAUM JA:MES DOWNEY .TAMES DURHAM LOUIS FOSTER , HAZEL c;ORDON PEARL (;RAHAM MARY OREEN MYRTLE GREEX LEO KIGIN JEAN JOHNS PENNNASH CLAYTON O ' BANION LORAL HANCOCK MARGARET O ' HARA FRANK HARDY HAZEL QUEAR MARCUS HARRIS MINNIE REAtiAN BUELL HASKETT THOMAS ROBINSON LOVIE HOliBS ERNEST ROSENTHAL ALLEN JOHNSON AMBROSE SCHMITT EDNA LITTLE BERTHA SHOOK AURELIA LONG HUGH SHOOK NOEL LOUCKS NELSON SMUrn EARLE LUDWIG RALPH SMITH KYLE MARKER STANLEY SPRINGER ANNA McAVOY FRANCES STAATS ANNA MOORE MADGE STEWART NL RIE NICHOLSON EUGENE TETER ALICE PYKE ZENAS TETER HAZEL PLAKE FLORA TURNER FRED ROULS LOLA WILLIAiMS ROSS SMITH DONALD TRESSIDER JOHANNA WACiNER BEULAH WARNER MURIEL WATSON GORDY WHEATLEY MAUDE WIGGINS BESSIE TRANBARGER ' r e ;o)) IN MEMORIAM Robert B. Beauchamp President Board of Education BORN Oct. 3, 1845. DIED Sept. 16. 1908. " The Best Friend Tipton High School Ever Had. ' ' The Pen and Pipe Club rHE PEN AND PIPE was founded February, Nineteen hundred and Nine. It ' s purpose is to enliven the literary life of the school and to promote good fellowship. It has done faithfully what it could along this line and has fulfilled the object for which it was created. It has done more than that, it has saved the literary department of the High School Annual of 1909 from being a failure. It was organized as an instrument of necessity and has accomplished that for which it w as organized to a degree beyond all expectations. The members have worked faithfully and deserve credit for the work v hich they have performed. The one trouble in literary work is the lack of support. This is true in far too many high school enterprises. The student body stands back and lets the " other fellow " do it, and consequently if is acramplished, one or two must carry the enterprise through or make a failure and bear the blame. If a person is requested to aid in accomplishing an object he immediately finds all sorts of excuses and escapes what he or she term the " trouble. " There are exceptions to all things and there are to this, but they are far outnumbered by the " I cants " in combination with the I don ' t want to ' s. " This is plain talk, but it is the truth. Until this can be overcome, either by school rules or a decided reform in patriotic and high school spirit among the students, literary work in the Tipton High School will be seriously hampered and in the end lose the slight good it now wields. The Annual is a pride to every high school student, and will be cherished more in after years, and the student, whether he be a Freshman or a Senior can hardly think of it ' s failure, but such will in time be the case unless a literary revolution occurs among it ' s supporters. For the sake of T. H. S., for the sake of his class, for his school mates, and for himself, let every T. H. S. student make himself a committee of one to propagate the literary side of the Tiptonian. The Tipton High School Senate ZT came to pass in the misrule of one of the tyrants that a senate was organized. It ' s membership consisted of the male members of the class of 09. It was organized on account of the desire of its members to display their unbounded wisdom. The person who considereel himself of most importance in their meet- ings, which were held in the assembly room every day at noon, was named Frank, by his parents. He was also addressed by this name by those who desired to gain a favor from him but usually more fitting epithets were used, such as " Peanut Fiend, " " Freak, " " Mutt Head " and " Swell Head. " His chief characteristics were his high opinion of himself; his inability to understand the other ' s attitude toward him; his ability to scorch anyone who dared oppose him. liy pouring forth volumes of hot air; and his credulity for his own stories. His classmates considered him as an evil which is too strong to be overcome and must be borne in patience. Another prominent member, prominent on account of his fine appearance and the wonderful stories he could tell of feats performed at a school which he had at- tended for a short time, was decorated with the inspiring cognomen, Okla. This was used almost universally, since even in the almost unlimited vocabulary of his friends, no nickname could be found which would express their opinion of him. His chief characteristics were his love for athletics, for balls and society in general; his pugnacious and revengeful spirit; his attention to his appearance, especially his well curled hair; his tendency to overestimate himself; and the desire, common to most High School students, to obtain his school supplies at the expense of another. His friends would have thought him a joke but for his splendid appearance. This they envied him very inuch. I have described the two who were the organizers of the body and for whom it was kept up. I will speak briefly of the other members. They were Monroe and Raymond, the great philosophers who exploded such wonderful theories in the meetings; Dennis, whose love of fact caused him to dispute anything about which he had any room for doubt; Ralph, who always wished to converse about the number of female hearts he had conquered; Chessel who took whole thing as a joke; Herman the unmerciful kidder; and Ben at whom the intended jests of the others were usually directed. A Mountaineer ' s Christmas Eve. 66 % ND on earth peace, good will toward men. " It was Christmas Eve in the - lonely Tennessee mountains, but scarcely any one in the cottages scatter- ed here and there along the trail realized it. Large flakes of snow were falling as they never fall except on Christmas Eve, and, in the dim twilight the holly bushes stood out like ghostly sentinels along the trail. A brawny man whose lean face bore the scars of the silent battles waged by those of his kind rode slowly down the path. He was not thinking of this Christmas Eve, but of the day a year before when he sat in the prison chapel and heard the story of " Peace on earth, good will toward men. " But there was no peace in his heart, only an intense longing for the day when he could satisfy his hatred on the man who put him there. And this was tlie day. The snow gathered on James Weston ' s slouch hat and whitened his hair and moustache until, to a childish mind, he resembled Santa Claus on his way to distribute gifts to the children in the lonely cottages. At last he saw a light gleaming like a star from the cottage at the head of the path; here lived the man who had wronged him. Still, he could not get the story that the chaplain told a year ago out of his mind. Who was he to take vengeance on his enemy? At last the light gleamed in his face and he knew that the time was at hand. He hitched his horse in the shadow of a ravine a few steps away from the house and crouched behind a tree, with the window just a few feet above the level of his eyes. He had waited long years and had ridden day and night for his. He gripped the pistol in his hand tightly. A woman stepped briskly about the kitchen followed by a toddling youngster. In the chimney-corner, peacefully smoking his pipe, sat his man. The cold hatred surged in his heart at sight of him and he al- most smiled. This was the moment, but now that it had come, a sense of shame ran through Weston. None of his kind had ever done this thing before; but the man peacefully smoking in the chimney-corner had and his own protected him. This man had shot from the hedge, and that was why he was safe at home, and James Weston was out there homeless in the snow. He watched for many minutes thinking of all this. Then his enemy rose and disappeared out of his range. James Weston was glad; he would meet him face to face the next day and kill him like a man. The door opened and there in the firelight stood the girl who had been all the world to him and whom he had heard was dead. So this was more of his enemy ' s work. And now she who had been his sweetheart stood before him — the wife of the man he intended to kill. Her lips moved and he thought he could hear her talking to the child, and then the man rose and after putting on his coat, stooped and kissed the child before leaving the house A flame flared up in the man crouching out side, — the old hatred intensified a hundred fold. Then he cocked his pistol, and waited. He was a mad man now and would kill. Nearer and nearer came his man all unaware of the form crouching near him in the darkness. There was a rapping on the window and the man turned around and waved his hand to the child who stood smiling at him from the window. It was the boy with dark hair just like his mother ' s and he stood peering at his father until the man was out of sight. Then the little fellow went back to the fire place and began to play. The sounds of his merriment float- ed out to the lonely man outside. The man watched until the child grew tired and went to sleep before the fire. An hour passed and at last the woman came and stood in the door- way looking anxiously out into the darkness. Weston stood up when she closed the door and started for his horse. He then and there resolved that his was not the hand to do this thing. As he mounted his horse he heard the man returning and he hid be- hind a holly bush. Again the door opened and the light flashed out on the snow. " That you, Bill? " a woman ' s voice called. " Yes, Mary, " And — then the child ' s voice: ' Hello, daddy. " " Hello, boy. " The greeting rang out almost at Weston ' s ear, and Bill passed death waiting for him behind the holly bush, and never saw the crouching figure in the snow. Then far down on the narrow, crooked path, with no light except that of the wonderful star shining over heard — the star that led him away and was leading him he knew not where, Weston turned and saw the lights of the cottage shining out. Once more he gazed at the star and again the voice came back to him: " Peace on earth, good will toward men. " And he was glad for her sake and the child ' s that he had not spoiled their Christmas Eve. Espy Katon ' 09. A Dream. •O LUSTERING March had given away before April ' s tears, which in turn were ■LM dried by the persistently sunny nature of May. It was May that coaxed a green carpet from Mother Earth, that persuaded the flowers to unfold their soft petals; that clothed the naked trees in rustling leaves; that encouraged the birds in home-making among the leafy bowers. May did all this, but it was beautiful June, that with richest touch, turned the earth and all creation to the one grand, perfect chord; that of life and love. An old man, feeling its subtle power, was tempted out of doors for the first time in many weeks, and seating himself under a spreading maple, watched the dancing sunbeams at his feet and listened to the leaves whisper to him of other days. Pretty soon the snowy head began to nod drowsily, and the Goddess of Dreams, touching him with her magic wand, led him into a happy field where the birds were singing and flowers were nodding him welcome as they gayly rocked in the breeze. He looked wonderingly at the beauty around him. " This is what Father Time calls childhood, " said his guide, smiling tenderly at him, as he once more trod the paths of those bygone years. Hardened by severer things, he did not feel the pebbles under foot that had hurt him, when as a child, he had passed that way, nor did he feel the little thorns among the flowers he plucked. " Father Time next brought you here, " she continued, as they entered the field adjoining, " This is called Youth. " He noticed the flowers here, although not so bright, were of a richer, deeper color, while the birds warbling had a note of thoughtfulness in it. They came to a stream of dark, turbulent water, and as they crossed over, some vague, half-forgotten memory seemed to trouble the old man. " That is the stream of Disappointment, " said the Goddess of Dreams, in answer to his backward glance. " The first time you crossed, it was not bridged, and as it was very deep, and cold, you were almost overcome; but since then you have bridged it over with Faith, and this bridge seems to grow stronger and firmer each succeeding year. " The path seemed to get rough and more stony. He noticed weeds growing among the flowers and careless steps brought him in contact with the thorns. As he gathered the flowers of Ambition and Success he inevitably plucked the sombre ones of Care. Sorrow, and Regret. He held a mixed bouquet, but in gazing at the bright blossoms, he seemed to for et the sombre ones. Soon they came to a single rose bush, weighted down with its burden of white, and sinking upon his knees, he pressed the nearest flower to his lips, while his companion laughed softly. " That is the flower of Love, which you know so well, " she said, and the flowers in his hand dropped for an instant but he did not cast them away. The flower of Love was then added to those he already held, and shed its fragrance altout them, as they continued their journey through the past. He soon began to tire. " Let us rest here for a while, " he begged of the God- dess, but she shook her head. " Father Time would not hear of it, we are not half through Middle Age yet; wait until you reach the end of your journey, then you can rest; you have but one more field to cross. " With a sigh he once more pressed forward, but he noticed that the flowers which had been growing so thickly about him now appeared less and less often, until they reached the last field where only the white flowers of Peace and Content waved He felt weary, and with a last look on the now withered bouquet of Ambition, Work and Success, with its clinginj companions of Care. Sorrow, and Regret, he flunt; it from him and sank down to rest in the shade and quietness of Old Age. The Goddess, never weary, looked pityingly at the bent form and bowed head, tfiinking with what joy he had come to this field. She stooped over him. " Once more we have gone the Past. " she whispered softly. " Now tell me what you would have liked best, to bring from there with you to the land of Old Age? " He smiled feebly, as he tenderly caressed the rose in his hand, " Nothing more than I still have; it is something that never grows old, " and a tiny breeze caused the rose to tremble joyously. Father Time then touched the Goddess on the shoulder. " Come, you have been with him long enough, depart. " And with a last caress she turned away. Looking at the resting figure again. Father Time beckoned to the Angel of Death. " He looks tired, " said he; " take him home, " and lightly the spirit of the aged one was borne heavenward, while Father Time silently passed on. Lucy Pickerp:ll ' 10. A Sick Boy ' s Afternoon. ONE beautiful, warm afternoon in early spring a sick hoy was lying fast asleep on a little white couch before an open window. Outside the birds were flitting about among the blossom-laden apple boughs, singing joyously. The cool breeze stole softly through the open w indow and gently lifted the golden ringlets on the snowy pillow. At last the child awoke, greatly refreshed, after his quiet sleep, and looked out on the beautiful picture of the w orld about him. He reached out his slender hand and broke off a twig of apple blossoms, which was lying on the window sill, seem- ingly regarding him with laughing eyes. While enjoying the fragrance of the blossoms, he watched a pair of robins, who were busily engaged in building their home. They were flying rapidly to and from the apple tree and on each return trip they carried something for their nest. A beautiful butterfly, which seemed to be making explorations, flew through the open window into the room, and the boy clapped his thin hands as he watched it flying about. When it found its way out again, he watched it until it was out of sight. As the sun was about to sink below the distant hills, the child ' s mother enter- ed the room. ' O, mother, " he exclaimed, in answer to her anxious inquiry, " I have been w atching the birds and butterflies and flowers all afternoon and I feel so much better. Isn ' t it beautiful! " he said, his delighted eyes sw eeping over the sur- rounding landscape, " Yes, my son, it is a beautiful, happy world, " said the mother, slowly lowering the window. Edna Little. Gingles.

T " ACK ALLISON leaned over and punched the fire in the grate till it flamed J up anew. The clock in the hall struck ten and he heard his mother ' s re- treating foot-steps as she made her nightly rounds to see that all doors and win- dows were securely fastened to bar the entrance of a possible burglar. Soon her foot-steps died away in silence — silence except for the hissing of the fire and the crackling and popping of a log as it burst forth in flame and then died away in ashes. All was darkness, except for the changing lights and shadows cast by the fire, — shadows, which deepened into murky gloom in the father corners of the room. Jack ' s head, the dark hair threaded here and there with gray, was bent forward and rested on his hand; his brows were draw n together over a pair of pensive brown eyes, eyes that gazed into the fire conjuring up pictures of other days: his mouth was firmly set with the lips slightly drawn, as if he was restraining some powerful emotion; in his lap lay a letter yellowed and faded with age; and Jack ' s thoughts were far away. That evening while looking through his desk he had come upon this letter which for years had lain apart. It brought back a stream of memories, and many of them painful ones. It was only a parting message from a girl who proved un- true, telling him that she was to wed another, but the wound it inflicted had not yet entirely healed. He had never seen her since but he had heard of her often, and although her home was far more luxurious than any he could have given her, he wondered if she were truly happy. He saw, in fancy, the girl as he first met her, in a dark red suit with costly furs, as his dearest friend handed her out of a sleigh and introduced her as his sis- ter. He saw her again in a shimmering gown of white, with her eyes shining like stars, the night she promised to be his wife. And then not quite a year later came the little note breaking the engagement. It was only a broken promise but how it changed his future. At first life seemed scarcely worth living, but Jack remem- bered his mother ' s pride and faith in him, so he resolutely set to work to root out all thoughts of love from his heart. He succeeded in a measure, and after a time as his business prospered, this world again seemed a good sort of place after all. But now the olden days were brought fresh to his memory by a little faded bit of paper. He tossed the letter into the fire and as it blackened the parting v ords, " and it is best that we should meet no more, " remained. He wondered if that meant that she was thinking of him. The fire burned low, the last log was now but a mass of glowing embers. Jack ' s head sank lower in his hands. And in the hall the great clock struck twelve. G. P. The Discovery sf America. In Fourteen hundred and Ninety-two, Columbus sailed they say; With three small ships and sailors few, To find a new trade-way. He sailed due westward for he thought The w orld to be a sphere, But others thought quite differently; And his men were filled with fear. They wept as land passed out of sight; They thought that nevermore They ' d meet with friends and kindred there On the dear old Spanish shore. But Columbus urged, encouraged them. And begged that they would go With him to find a new trade route, Which Europe needed so. For many days they westward sailed. Until some birds flew by; And then they followed where these led; They thought, " Land must be nigh. " For several days they followed them, And yet no land appeared; The sailors filled with fear and rage. Now at their leader sneered. They said if he did not turn back They would drown him in the main. ' Twas then he promised in three days That he ' d turn back again; His faith was strong that by this time, They ' d reach the land somewhere; For every sign made him quite sure, That land was lying near. A leaf, a bud, a carven stick. Were found from day to day; The wind was mild, the water still. The climate was like May. They watched by night, they watched by day. As the third day drew near, Columbus walking on the deck, Peered through the dark in fear, Lest, after all, his enterprise Might end in failure drear: But he was sure he must be right, And that the land was near, When suddenly he saw a light — O, yes! it must be true! He called his captains to his side. That they might see it too. They all cried out. " It is a light. And must be on the land. Because it moves from place to place, " ' Tis carried by a hand " They waited eagerly for dawn. And there lay near at hand. All beautiful beneath the sun, A seeming fairy-land. With smooth green fields and rivulets. It, to the weary eyes That had not seen the land for weeks, Was like a Paradise. They shouted praises unto God, They sang Te Deums loud. They ran ashore in highest glee. They to Columbus bowed. They begged forgiveness of him For what they ' d done and said: They all agreed that he had been By some divine power led. And thus Columbus ope ' d the gate To a new hemisphere And broke the chain that e ' er had bound The Atlantic dark and drear. So then all hail Columbus! The man who first did see. The country where our people live. So happy and so free. And may his spirit rest in peace And great be his reward When with us at the judgment seat. He meets his loving Lord. Grace Trimble ' 10. The Elf-king. Who rides so late in the night dark and wild? It is a father with his child; He clasps the young boy in his arm, He holds him securely and keeps him warm. " Child, why do you hide your face in fear? " " See father dear, the Elf-king is near. The Elf-king with his crown and train, " — " My son, ' tis only the mist and rain. " " Dear little child, come away with me! I will play very pretty games •with thee; There are gay-colored flowers on the strand; My mother has garments rich and grand. " My father, my father, cries the boy in fear, The Elf-king ' s promise do you not hear? " — ' Be quiet my child, do be at ease, ' Tis only the wind among the trees. " " O, lovely boy, will you go with me? My daughters will tenderly care for thee; My daughters lead a festal dance. To sleep and pleasure they entrance. " " And father, dear father, do you not mark The Elf-king ' s daughters -in the dark? " ' Yes, yes, my son, quite well 1 see It is the willows that frighten thee. " " I love you, I ' m charmed by your lovely form, I shall take you by force from your father ' s arm. " " O, father, my father, he is grasping me now. His awful hand is on my brow. " The father shudders, he rides like wild, He clasps yet closer the moaning child. He reaches the court with pain and dread, For in his arms the boy lies dead. Translated from " Erl-koenig.

Gone are all my childhood joys, 1 stifle the sigh from my heart. For to-night I have laid thee by, Have bidden thee farewell, No more will cares away fly, Soothed by thy mystic spell. At last I must part from thee, Though the parting causes woe. The anguish it brings to me. No one will ever know. But I will try to forget you. Nor think of the bliss that is past.

And fancy brings up memories long forgot. Of happy days gone by, forever flown. When night winds wailing softly sob and moan. And thoughts which from my soul I fain would blot. Arise with longings vain, and leave me not, And fill my heart with terror, vague, unknown. My loved Briarwood I silently fill And softly strike the match, it ' s phizz so low It ' s ever faithful puffs respond and soon My heart with useful peace doth overflow. The darkness of my soul is changed to noon And vanished in the night is all my woe. Pen and Pipe. V y l avorite Study. rHERE are so many wise and good things written in books, that every one should early try to cultivate a taste for reading. There are many thousands of books; and all that is written in them is either about the world which God has made, or about the thoughts and sayings of His creatures on whom He has bestow- ed the power to think and to speak. My favorite study is history, for it describes what kind of people have lived in olden times, and in other countries. By reading history, we know w hat is the dif- ference between our own nation and the famous nations which lived and flourished in the early periods of the world ' s history. Such were the Egyptians, who built the Pyramids, — the most stupendous buildings of stone ever constructed by men; and the Babylonians, who had a city with huge walls, built of bricks, and furnished with a number of brazen gates. History tells us of the Jews, to whom the commands of God were given; of the Greeks, who knew how to make fine statues and buildings, and to write books; of the Romans, that people who lived in the ancient city of Rome, and how skillful they were in war. It is also from history, that we may learn what kind of men lived in our own country before it was peopled with emigrants from Europe, or even with the wild Indians whom they found here; and something of the mounds found in various parts of our country, built by a people the memory of whom has passed away. Again we learn what kind of men lived, in olden times, in the northern part of Asia and Europe, and how they passed from there to the south and west, over- turning civilized nations in their course, and founding the present nations of Europe; and how some of these people came to live in England, and planted there a mighty kingdom lasting to our own time. If we try to be better for all we read, as well as wiser, we shall find books a great help towards goodness as well as knowledge. Loral Hancock, ' 12. The Shopper. rHE shopper entered the store with her mind fully made up. It was to he soft, gray satin with a small pink flower. She knew the exact shade. As she passed along the counter she met a friend who had very good taste. " Oh, I am so glad I met you " she said, " I want you to help me select a new waist to match my gray suit. " They went farther down to the s ilk counter. Yes, they had a new kind of waisting just the right shade of gray. " But, it has a blue dot in and my gray hat has pink flowers on it, " said she. Of course it wouldn ' t do and it was hardly the right shade. Her friend suggested that they have a suit brought and match the goods. The clerk carried several suits back and forth, before getting the right shade and then " well that is hardly the right shade but I guess it will do. " After the clerk had pulled down several more bolts of goods, her friend said " Lets go over to Brown and Barton ' s. They keep the best goods and are always so willing to show their line. " As they left the counter the clerk was heard to mutter. " And they are always so willing. " Madge Stkwakt ' 12. Robert Douglas ' s Home-coming. -n OBERT DOUGLAS strode down the little platform of tfie railway station aX. with his suitcase in his hand. He stopped a moment and looked about him, as if undecided which way to turn; not that he was unfamiliar with the place, no indeed, for he was going home; but he was undecided which of two familiar ways to go. He finally took the longest way, not because he dreaded to reach his home, nor because the long way was best, but because he wished to avoid a certain old elm tree on the other road. Beneath this tree, three years before, Robert had quarreled with Mildred Pal- frey, the girl he was to marry. He had left the country at once, and gone to join an uncle in India. Now he had come back, forgetting her angry words and long- ing to see her again. Somehow it had always seemed to him that he would first meet Mildred beneath the elm tree where they had parted, and he did not wish to dispel the illusion. Of course it was possible that she might be there but it was not at all probable and he did not wish to take any chances. He noticed the changes in the little village as he hurried down the street. " Uncle Ben " Sailes had a new sign for his shoe shop. Robert greeted the old man as he passed, but from the answering salutation he saw that he was not recognized. Perhaps his beard made all the difference; he was frightfully lironzed, too, by the hot Indian sun, after all he didn ' t suppose that he looked much like the fair, slender boy, that had left three years before. He wondered if his mother and Mildred would recognize him. He had not written that he was coming home for he wish- ed it to be a surprise. As he passed the big brick house of Henry Jacobs he was struck with its sleek, well-trimmed air. He wondered if Mr. Jacobs had at last married the widow, Mrs. Locke. Mrs. Kirton was sitting on her veranda knitting, as he had seen her hundreds of times before. A little cottage was built on Deacon Brown ' s cow-pasture, a pretty little cottage with green blinds and a lawn with long white walks and shady trees. Perhaps that would be his home — their home when Mildred and he were married. His heart was light as he turned in at the home gate. A little figure in black, with a brown sun-bonnet — he believed it was the same old bonnet — was bending over a rose bush. He set down his suitcase and sprang forward. The little woman hesitated a moment, then ran to him crying. " Oh, Bob! Bob! " as she threw her arms about him. In a few minutes they were sitting on the shady porch talking as fast as their tongues could go. He had much to tell of his adventures in a foreign land and she quite as much to relate about the village happenings. At last a silence fell between them which was broken by Robert ' s question. " And Mildred, is she well? " His mother ' s voice was very low when she answered: ' Didn ' t you get my letter? " " No, is Mildred ill? " " She is dead, " her voice was lower still. A strange pallor showed beneath the tan and Robert Douglas tightly gripped the arms of his chair. His mother went on telling how, two winters before, Mil- dred had fallen ill. After a time she had seemed to grow better but was never quite strong again. She had lingered, growing weaker and weaker, until the next autumn when the first chill wind had carried her away. They had laid her beneath the branches of the old elm tree where she and Robert had parted, two years lie- fore, Robert was very quiet while she told the sad little story, so strangely calm that his mother began to think that he had not cared as much for the girl as she had believed. When she entered the house to get supper, Robert said that he was go- ing to see Mildred ' s grave. His mother, without a word, gave him a bunch of pansies and he set forth down the street which he had before avoided. While he walked slowly onward he watched the sun sinking behind a mass of dark gray clouds. At last he stood with bowed head under the old elm and, as the night fell slowly over the earth, all the hope and joy seemed to have gone from his life, leav- ing only the gloom of a great loss. Sams Scare. The night was dark as dark could be, No stars nor moonHt sky To Hglit the traveler ' s weary way. Or cheer the passersby. The little village on the hill Lay folded in the night. From cottage windows now and then Flashed flickering rays of light. Within the village grocery store The swains from miles around Were wont to gather and discuss Affairs of state and town. Around the store this evening sat The usual jolly crowd While, ever and anon, came peals Of laughter long and loud. Foremost in all the jokes was Sam A dark haired, grey eyed lad. Who laughed at jokes on others played, But when on him, got mad. At last the ring began to thin As some tall husky swain Departed to his usual home To seek repose again. Then Sam began to stretch himself, Put on his cap and gloves. And buttoned up his overcoat As any school boy does. " So long! " he said and then was gone Out in the roadway bare, And shuddered as he thought of ghosts A ' flying through the air. When suddenly before him stood A figure broad and tall. And Samuel ' s knees became so weak He nearly got a fall. At last he got up nerve to say " Good evening. Sir, " but oh! The monster answered not a word. And Sam was cold as snow. He took a few short paces and Began to think that all Was over when he saw a flash And heard a whistling ball. His steps l egan to quicken then Almost into a run. And then again came the report From out the same old gun. But when the sound had died away Sam ' s running blood was up; He nearly flew along the road. Past fields and barn and hut. So fast he few that when he heard The fence posts whizzing by He thought that they were bullets and He wished that he could fly. At last he reached his own dear home And afterwards he said It never looked so good to him As the night he raced with lead. " Why, Samuel, dear, " his father said " You ' re early home this eve " " Yey " said Sam, " and after this I ' ll stay home if you please. " And now when they all gather round The cheery grocery stoves They laugh and tell about the joke They played on Samuel Groves. Herschel Frances ' 10 Physics T " WAS sitting by the window studying that most discouraging and difficult sub- - - ject, Physics. Suddenly, I heard a voice saying, " Bring your book and come here. " Glad of an excuse, I cl osed my book with a bang and went out on the porch. I followed the voice and reached the bottom step before I noticed its owner. It was a queer little thing. I never believed in fairies, but I didn ' t know what else to call this beautiful little creature. She was about one foot high and was dressed in a rose colored dress of something so light that it seemed like air. She had a pair of wings made of pink rose petals. Her hair looked like sunshine and her eyes were ocean blue. I have never been able to describe that face. It was always changing and yet always beautiful. She held a large pink rose in her hand for a wand. She beckoned me to follow but I hesitated. ' Come, " she then said in a voice of sweetest music. I w as too much surprised to speak so I followed in silence. She led me on and on. I was not walking but floating into a very strange land- At last we came in sight of w hat seemed to be a large glass house. She stopped in front of this building and said, " This is a house built of tears, which have fallen from the eyes of Physics students. ' In it we will place your book. " I had forgotten about my book, but thinking about my lesson for to-mor- row, I asked why. Without answering she opened the door and we passed into a very large hall. On shelves around this room were all kinds of Physics text-books. I looked so very bewildered that she began to explain. " We fairies have decided, " she said, ' that Physics is a subject altogether too hard for poor weak man to study. ' Therefore we have collected all the text-books, but yours. ' We shall lock them up in here and no man will ever find them. If you give us yours you may go back home and never have to study that subject again, but if you do not, come and see the result. " She took me to a door at the other end of the hall. 1 looked through the glass made of salty tears and saw two of my classmates, who, because they had loved Physics so well, had refused to give up their text-books, and were doomed to work problems and take Physics examinations, all the rest of their lives. When I saw their terrible fate, I immediately and not in the least unwillingly surrendered my book. My fairy then conducted me to the door and told me I might go home. 1 went on my way rejoicing and thinking how delightful it would be not to bother our brains about, heat, light, machines, mechanics of liquids and solids, and laws of all kinds and descriptions. As I floated on happily engaged with these thoughts I suddenly heard some one calling my name and awoke with the sad realization that I was back in the land of text-books and that my joyful experience was all a dream. Pearl Fisher ' 10. Class Prophecy PART I. WANDERED down to the beach one hot afternoon in July. It was one of those still, lazy days when every thing seems to be asleep. Being an active person, I disliked the drowsiness of the weather and tried to soothe my feelings by listening to the dash of the waves upon the beach. I had been there only a few minutes when Opal Pence, my school mate, who was also taking an outing at the sea shore, came along and sat down beside me. " Well, school is over, " said Opal " and I wonder what will become of us all nov I don ' t believe the faculty thinks we will, as a whole, amount to much. " " I wish we had a prophecy of our class. It would be interesting wouldn ' t it " said I. We had been so engrossed in our conversation that we did not notice the lit- tle skiff that had drawn up by us on the beach. We both looked up at the same moment and there in the boat were two beautiful mermaids. When they saw our questioning looks, one of them addressed us. " Pardon me " she said in a soft musical voice " hut we could not help hearing your conversation about school. You know that mermaids are supposed to forfeit the future. How would you like to go down with us to the home of the mermaids? We have a prophetess who makes a specialty of the schools of the lands. " We jumped up, eager at any chance for diversion and needed no second in- vitation to step into the boat. PART II. We rowed out a little way and then our boat began to sink: down; down we went and after what seemed eternity to our giddy brains we reached the bottom. At first we could see nothing but sand. Our friends bade us follow them and we entered a low room of sand where a beautiful mermaid sat at a desk of sea-weed writing. We told her our mission and she rose and went to a little coral chest, brought forth a parchment and read it over. " Yes " she said slowly " you have a very good record. Whom shall I begin with? " " With our President. Herman O ' Hara " said Opal. " Well, he has no definate plan in his mind now and he will try many things but he will in the end give his time to scientific pursuits and will become quite great. " " My! we must write to Herm.m and tell him about Raymond McArdle. " Oh! he has an old uncle who shall leave him a large sum of money and he will get into New York ' s four hundred and his head will become quite turned for a time. He will have a flirtation with a New York girl but after a time he will marry Margaret Miller and she will take his silly notions away from him. " " That ' s two more accounted for " said Opal, " now tell us about Arvilla Fuller. " " She will teach for a while in the country schools. But this is not her destiny. She will go through college and become a mathematics teacher. " " Tell us about Espy Katon " said Opal. " I ' ve always wondered what she would do. " Espy is planning now to be married next spring to her soldier boy. She will have her trousseau all ready and the day set for the wedding but circumstances which no one will kn ow about will prevent the marriage. She will become quite thin from worry and live a recluse the rest of her life. " " The girl named Cora Wise who could not speak when school was out has lost her voice for good. She has talked so much all her life that she has lost her voice and will never recover it. But she will not be idle. She vrill become an ac- complished dress-maker. Her specialty being graduation and wedding garments " " There is no need telling you of Ethel Coleman ' s success she will study abroad for several years and her success will be unlimited. " " Ben Drake will go west and live on a ranch. He will become very wealthy. " " Lydia Hartman will be a nurse in St. Eva ' s Hospital and become quite famous for her surgical skill.

The New High School Building. FOR the past decade the people have felt the need of better school facilities but not until December. 1906 were effective steps taken to secure the same- Under the laws of the state it was necessary to hold an election to determine if the people would submit to the extra taxation necessary in order to erect the building. The vote carried by a good majority and ground was broken for a new building in April. 1907. The contract was let to P. H. McCoruiack. of Columbus, Indiana, one of the best known contractors in the country. Many were the delays incident to the erection of so large a structure and not until September, 1908 was the building ready for use. All who have inspected the building agree that Tipton has one of the most commodious structures in the entire country. It will amply care for the needs of the people of Tipton, and Tipton county, for many years to come. -i z Ml a: o X C 2: The Departmental Work. FOR the first time in the history of the Tipton Public Schools has departmental work been introduced. It has been placed in the efficient charge of Mr. E. E. VanBuskirk, assisted by Mr. J. T. Tracy and Miss Mary McArdle, and the plan is no longer considered an experiment, but a decided success. There are about two hundred pupils in the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades, and the room presents the finest appearance of any in the state of Indiana, within the writer ' s knowledge. People who were not thoroughly conversant with the old crowded conditions and bad sanitary environment of their children in the city schools can hardly realize the welcome change and the fine spirit infused into both pupils and teachers.

An Athletic Board was placed in charge of athletics and the local school became a member of the State High School Association and the local organization combined ■with the State in making Tipton High a strong member.

It marks the passing of the athletes who for years have brought honor and fame to Tipton High, and the supplementing of them by younger and less experienced, though not less nervy rmn. Though scores made by this year ' s eleven have not been the equal of some in the past, the hardworking members of the ' 08 team have been pursued by a hard fate, which, taken into consideration, makes their performance appear in the light in which they should be appreciated. In Sept. the first call for candidates was issued and about twenty fellows re- sponded. Of this number only four, Kirtley, Renner, Richey and Francis, were players of experience. However, prospects did not appear of an entire black hue and the best was hoped for. The boys went to work and for three or four days practice was hard, then came a relapse, and the team, when the first game with El- wood was played, had no practice whatever. They opened the season Sept. 19th in Elwood with the High School team of that city, who had been at constant practice for three weeks and were confident of sweeping the Tipton county lads off their feet The Tipton team only hoped to hold the Madison county champions to a low score and entertained no hopes of the tie game which resulted. Our boys put up a great game and were twice prevented from scoring by the whistle blowing for time. Result: Tipton High, 0; Elwood High, 0. After this game Tipton High stock soared, for we had proved ourselves to have light but fairly good material, but lack of spirit soon began to tell and for a time the team appeared to have disbanded, but finally after a desperate effort it survived and came onto the field for a second game with Greenwood High School in that city, Nov. 6th. This game was our first victory, and in a hard-fought game which was stub- bornly contested throughout, the local boys defeated the Greenwood eleven 15-0. This greatly encouraged the hopes of the players, and two weeks later the unex- pected happened, and we defeated Bunker Hill High School in that city on Nov. 14, by the score of 21-0, despite the fact that the local boys were outweighed twenty pounds to the man and forced to abide by the decisions of a dishonest referee. No more games were played until the big Thanksgiving contest with Attica High School in that city on Thanksgiving day. The local team entered the game under disadvantages for which no one could he held accountable and were not in the l-iest of condition for the final struggle. On Thanksgiving, before 1,000 foot- ball enthusiasts and rooters, Tipton went down to defeat by a score of 15-0. Though outweighed twenty pounds to the man, and the recipients of all the day ' s ill luck in the way of fumbles and general tough luck, the Tipton team of 1908 will long be remembered for the nervy game contest which it put up. The Tipton team was accorded the most cordial treatment by the citizens and players of Attica and the sting of their only defeat was entirely wiped out by the hospitality of the Attica people and students. Had the local boys been under the guide of a competent coach a great record might have been made, but as the season stands, the school is satisfied with the results under the conditions which they were obtained. Hughes and Van Buskirk, the two ends, were a well matched pair, always on the alert and ever ready for what might come their way. In Francis, O ' Hara and Wagstaff, Tifston High had three tackles who gave the team the l est they had with- out regard for the effect upon themselves. Francis, of course, stood above his team mates on account of his experience and weight. Renner played a consistent game throughout the year and his experience also helped him greatly. Without him the left side of the line would have been much weaker. In Glenn, small, wiry and quick, the team had a man decidedly the opposite of his brother guard, but what he lacked in weight he made up in nerve and endurance. Though his first year on the gridiron. Brown put up a steady, consistent game at center, that in most of the contests he outplayed his more experienced opponents. Despite his light weight he repeatedly broke through the opposing line and smashed up plays before they were fairly started. Richey and Brookbank at halfs and Kirtley at full made a good backfield combination. Brookliank was not only a fair defensive man but featured in long end runs and made miny gains by crossing the field before being tackled. Richey played a consistent game the entire year. While his offens- ive work was good the defense was his forte, and time after time he piled up the heavy backs of the opposing team. Kirtley, heavy and compact, was not only a good line plunger but a defensive man of no mean ability. He was a hard worker and always pulling his man a few inches farther. D. Wagstaff filled the c]uarter- back position in the most creditable manner and ran the team with the judgment and coolness of a veteran. V. Wagstaff, Teter, Thompson and Urmston filled the bill as substitutes in the most creditable manner. Weares of the " T ' l= " oot Ball HUGHES. VAN BUSKIRK, FRANCIS. V. WAGSTAFF.

The Sophomore team started the season by defeating the Freshmen eleven 10 to 5 in an interesting game. The Sophomores, elated by their victory, repeated it in a short time at the expense of the Juniors by the score of 5 to 0. The Sopho- mores having now defeated ' 10 and ' 12, issued a challenge to the nevifly formed Senior eleven which was accepted at once. In the first game the Seniors ran away with the Sophomores and proceeded to pile up a score of 30 to 0, blasting the hopes of ' 11 for High School championship honors. The Juniors were the next victims of the victorious Senior eleven, and they went down in a hard-fought game by a score of 25 to 5. These games settled the championship question beyond a doubt, and the Freshmen eleven lost no time in conceding their inferiority to the Seniors. No more games bearing upon the championship were played although the Freshmen eleven trimmed the Sophomores in a final game by the score of 10 to 5. STANDING OF TEAMS AT CLOSE OF SEASON. CLASS.

During the winter months prospects were exceedingly bright for a strong team, but the failure of several players to maintain grades that would retain them in good standing, weakened the prospects for supremacy of the local school upon the diamond. Trouble was also entercountered in arranging a satisfactory schedule owing to several of the neighboring schools having forsaken the diamond for the track. Games were secured however with Kempton High School, Windfall High School, L. E. W. Office Team, and Taylor ' s All Americans. The opening game was played w ith the Kempton High School team in that city on April 17th and after a weird game in which misplays and heavy hiting featured the T. H. S. team was defeated by the score of 13 to 11. The boys were far from satisfied with the manner in which they had played and it was only after a week ' s practice that they tackled the Taylor ' s All Americans, who after a desper- ate struggle w ere defeated by the score of 5 to 1. The next game was played with the Windfall H. S. team in that city and after a nerve racking game the T. H- S. team went down to defeat by the score of 2 to 1. The following day the L. E. W. Office Men were defeated by the score of 7 to 4, and two weeks later the T. H. S. team again defeated them by the score of 5 to 4. The High School boys the fol- lowing week again played Taylor ' s All Americans in this city, being defeated by the score of 3 to 1, and winning the third game by the score of 5 to 2. On Friday May 6th, the T. H. S. team crossed bats for the second time with the Windfall H. S. aggregation, and defeated the Windfall boys by the score of 13 to 1. Proving their superority in every department of the game. Of the old men Kirtley, Richey, Thompson, Hughes and Glenn made the team with Brown, VanBuskirk, Wagstaff, Shook and O ' Hara as new men. The develop- ment of the team may be seen from the fact that it was defeated easily by Kemp- ton early in the season, while the later games were victories over much stronger teams that the one representing Kempton High School The old players are too well known to need any comment. VanBuskirk and Brown, both new men, formed a high class high school battery. Glenn at short played a reliable game. Richey at first was a good reliable player and safe batter. Wagstaff played a good game at second through out the season. Shook at third played with snap and vim, while Kirtley, O ' Hara and Thompson pulled down many apparently safe drives in the outfield. Hughes played well in what ever position he was placed. Brown was the premier slugger of the team and caught a good game, while VanBuskirk not only pitched excellent ball but helped con- siderably in the batting department. The fielding and batting of the team was ex- cellent and their record is one to be proud of, considering the limited practice which they were able to obtain. T. H. S. Opponents ' 1 ' . H.

DODDS SOTIETY Society [Notes ON the eighth of October, the class of ' 09 were entertained at the home of Espy Katon on West Adams street. After the business of the class had been discussed in which it was decided to give a pie supper at the old T. H. S. building. Every one joined in the games. One feature of the evening ' s entertainment was playing forfeits. Many comical things happened, among which Cora Wise capped the climax by falling into Frank Richey ' s arms. Dainty refreshments were served, after which the meeting adjourned until the next month. On the sixth of November, the Senior Class was entertained at the home of Ethel Coleman on Conde street. Owing to the fact that the boys of the class had gone to Greenwood to play ball, only a few were present. The evening was spent in music and games, after which dainty refreshments were served. On the twenty-fourth of November, a surprise party was given for Pearle Askren and Mabel Kleyla, at the home of the latter five miles north of town. The Junior and Senior classes and a few other friends assembled at the home about seven o ' clock to await the coming of the two girls, who were detained in town. It proved to be a success for they were completely surprised. The evening was spent in playing games and dancing, with which there was good music. Many amusing things happened during the evening, one of which was the falling of one of the girls thru a barrel, and then had to be lifted out. Refreshments were served, after which the company were conveyed to the car line in a farm wagon. One of the most pleasing and delightful events of the jolly winter v fas the good old fashioned bob sled party of the Sophomore class to the home of their class- mate John D. Smith. The largest percent of the class took advantage of the Smith hospitality and after spending a jolly hour and a half en-route to the Smith mansion they proceeded to consume a quantity of good things, which one of their number afterwards declared, he had never known to be in existence. The evening was varied with numerous forms of amusement and after an almost overwhelming lunch they returned to their homes with a hope of another bob sled party. The Junior reception for ths Senior class was given at thj home of Ralph Kemp. The magnificent home of the Kemp ' s was tastefully decorated for the oc- casion in flowers and both class colors. The evening was spent in various enter- tainments and at a late hour refreshments were served after which the Seniors and Juniors parted from their last affair in common. How V uch Do You Suppose?
