THE TIPTONIAX Swan Swansons Wedding 0 | XE day as a peddler of wringers drove slowly down tlie dusty road lead- ing to a little Norwegian village in Minnesota, he saw numerons wag- ons and buggies traveling to and from the city, wher( the farners were in the habit of trading. As he entered the village, he noticed the pc(:i)le hurrying about excitedly, talking and laughing. Accosting tlu lirst n.an he inet, a great, brawny Norwegian, he asked : " Will you please tell uie what all this excitement is about? " " It bane a great time tonight, " said the man, wiping his perspiring forehead. " Swan Swanson, he bane gone git married to Hulda Yohnson. Yaas, it bane great time. " " And who is Swan Swanson? " inquired the peddler. " lie ' s the squire an ' bane to marry the lilacksmith ' s daughter, who bane a great society leader. " " Thank you, " said his intei ' r(tgatoi-. chuckling to himself as he passed on. He had not proceeded far when he suddenly stopped his chuckling, scratched his head slowly, then slajiped his knee, and laughing aloud, shook the reins briskly over his horse ' s back and ilrnve forward at a smartei ' pace He paused at the first house and alighting, went to the door and knocl;- ed. The door was opened by a smiling, red-faced, blond-haired dame of anqiic girth. " Gud day, " said she. " Good morning. Jladam, " said the salesman. " I have a new p,;!ent wringer which I desire to show yon. 1 guarantee it to last as long as yon v,ai;t it to and to wring clothes so dry that they need not be hung up. " " Why, " said the woman, " why didn ' t a " tank of that before. ' It would make a fine present to git for them. " She then purchased a wringer, to the no smill satisfaction of the agent. ' I ' hat evening the home of the bride was extravagantly illuminated, old ; lr. Johnson declaring that for so great an occasion, it made no rutference if they did waste some coal oil. The old gentleman was handosmely attired in a long greon swallow- tailed coat, which had once been black, but had faded with age. It smelled strangely of moth balls and perfume. As he walked about with a pompous air, he slipped his large, toil-worii hand inside his collar, tugging at it and grimacing frightfully in an effort to keep from strangling to death. The huge parlors were lavishly decorated with paper chrysanthemums and roses of various hues. In one corner stood a piano, the pride of the fam- ily. In the center of the room stood a large table and on it a huge family Bible lay opened exactly in the middle. The bride was upstairs. She was being dressed by her mother in her 10 THE TIPTONIAN weddiug gariueuts, while uuiuerous small brothers aud sisters stood looking on in open mouthed amazement at the grandeur of her toilet. The dress was a wonderful creation of gi-een messaline with a beautiful yellow flounce around the skirt. The sleeves were short aud trimmed with the same mater- ial. Ilulda turned this way and that before the mirror, trying to see how the dress fitted, while her mother looked on with admiring eyes. Finally even Huldah was satisfied and sat down to await the coming of the groom and the minister. Meanwhile downstairs the guests had begun to arrive and were receiv- ed and welcomed by Mr. Johnson. They were dressed in the colors of the rainbow, each endeavoring to outshine his or her neighbors. The large bulky packages they carried were piled on the table and the guests sat down on the borrowed chairs placed for them, talking and chattering all the while in loud voices. Suddenly a hu.sh fell on the assembly. A tow-headed urchin whispered .shrilly, " Da preacher bane come. " " Shh! " said his aunt and all the guests sat up primly with hands tightly claspetl in their laps and chins drawn down agianst their necks. In walked the minister with Swan. A murmur ran around the room: " Ain ' t he a fine young man? " " Ay tank ay ' 11 git me a suit like his. " Mr. Swanson was attired in a handsome suit of Shepherd ' s Check in black and white, and Avore a blazing red bow-tie at his straining collar. He stood in the doorway twisting his new brown derby hat in his nervous hands. The bride now entered accompanied by her mother and Swan, grinning sheepishly, stiffly shook hands with her. One of the younger Johnsons offer- ed the large family Bible to the minister who explained that he was suffi- ciently supplied Avith Bibles. Then the ceremony began, the guests craning their necks to get a better view. After the ceremony, the presents were opened. The first one unwrap- ped was a new wringer of the most approved pattern. After it had been suffi- ciently admired, the other packages were opened and lo! — the table was lit- erally covered with -wringers. The bride fainted in the arms of the bridegroom, but soon revived; while the guests all talked at once trying to explain the curious coincidence. The annoimcement of supper proved a welcome interruption and after a bountiful repast, the guests dispersed, the men scratching their heads as if puzzled, yet laughing at times to themselves. — AIDA ROCKWELL, ' 16. TIPTONIAN The Dark Place (A Reminiscence.) l -v I KOTllEK ami I were afraid of the dark or at least we did not like it v|C very well. In a white house on the banks of the Jordan, there was a d certain jilaee with which we were well acquainted. This spot was a very small elo.set built under the stairway. I can still recall the words of my mother: " One word more and into the closet you will go. " This was all that was necessary most times, but, of course, we often landed in the closet. Here we would beat on the door with our fists and cry and beg to be let out, until the heart of mother would be melted. Free once more, we would start on our daily round of mischief. One day we had been unusually good and mother thought it safe to leave us in the front room, while she worked in the kitchen. But not so. We entered the small room which contained the " Black Place, " closed the door and locked it. Then we concluded that it would be funny to shut ourselves up in the place of punishment. We did so, but the door once closed could not be opened except from the outside. It was only a few minutes till we wanted ovit, but the door would not yield. We became frightened and screamed, and the other memlitM-s of the family came to our rescue; but the look on the outside door had to he lnok- en. When we were again at liberty, we were so frightened and had such a horror of the dark closet, that mother never placed us there again foi ' punish- ment; so we gained at least one point from our expei ' ience. — NINA sr.iTH. ' ' 3. yln Jlugust Day R lIlE withered tields lay yelloM ' and sere on either side of the dusty road |vjy| which stretched out interminably beneath a glaring sk.v. The sun beat ggg3 down relentlessly. The birds sought refuge in the trees of a small grove adjoining the meadow and sat there with half-spread wings, as if posing for a painting, the subject of which should be " Anxiety. " The herd in the hot meadow also sought the shade afforded by the low-hanging branches and stood miserably flicking their tails against their streaming sides. All na- ture seemed to pause and pant for breath. — HAROLD FRISZ, ' 13. THE TIPTONIAN Tommy ' s Thanksgiving R O.MMY JONES, a little chap of twelve, lived with his father, mother ] U and three younger children, in an old barn which was hardly fit to g g shelter stock. His father was an odd-job man, who found little to do, and his mother did daily washings. Thus it happened that they were unable to pay even a nominal rent, and were compelled to live as best they could in a deserted barn. One day while Tommy was playing in the street, he saw a beautiful little kitten which was being pursued by an ugly black dog. He screamed and ran toward the dog, but his efforts to frighten it away were in vain. In an in- stant more the kitten had plunged headlong into the old open well behind the barn. The dog, deeming it wise to stay on the surface, stood barking angrily down at the kitten. Tommy soon appeared on the scene with a club and the ugly dog " stood not upon the oi-der of his going, " but went at once. Tom- my ' s next thought was to rescue the kitten. He did not think about the wat- ers being far below the surface, so he got down on his knees, looked down into the well, and then — down went his hat to the watery grave of the kitten. Tommy was frightened for the hat was his very best. He knew that it had cost his mother the price of a washing. Tearfully, he returned to the old shed, where she bent over her tubs, and told his story. Mrs. Jones was tired and she angrily told him that he must find employment the next day and get himself a new hat or go without. Tommy was up bright and early the next morning. Store after store he visited, vainly seeking for work. Finally he saw a clergyman standing in a church door. " I shall ask him, " thought the boy, " if he can tell me where I can find anything to do to earn some money. " Touching his tattered old cap politely, he stepped up to the gentleman and said : " If you please, sir, will you tell me where I can find work? " The bright face of the lad appealed to the kindly clergyman and it was not long until he had learned all about the little family, whose members were in such desperate straits. It happened that the choir of the church was jilanning a musicale, which was to be given on Thanksgiving, and being told of Tommy ' s trouble the members employed him to sell tickets for them. Although they could have sold the tickets themselves, they agreed to let Tommy sell them and promised to give him a part of the proceeds in payment for his work. Tommy was overjoyed. He sold a great number of the tickets and as a result was given quite a goodly sum of money by the choir and a nice suit of clothes, went to the church to perform his part in tlie wonderful musicale. The pipe organ the night of the musicale. When the evening of Thanksgiving arrived, Tonuny dressed in his new clohtes, went to the church to perform his part in the wonderfiil musicale. The concert began and so full of thankfulness was our hero ' s heart that it poured THE TIPTONIAN forth in melody from his lips. His sweet, childish voice was heard all through the service, and after it was over, his story was told to some of the members of the congregation. As he had such a beautiful voice and had proven so faithful a worker, they decided to give part of the proceeds of the concert to his needy family, and to use the rest in sending him to a conservatory of mu- sic, where he could take vocal lessons. Such was Tommy ' s Thanksgiving, and with the little help he then received, he was enabled, in later years to acquire a great reputation as a soloist, both at home and abroad. He now says that he would like to caress the old ugly dog which caused him to lose his hat, as he is certain that was the turning point in his life. — MARTHA HENSLEY, ' 14. A Winter Morning IJ I HE day dawued with scarcely a breeze. All things Avere covered with a Iv l glittering frost, which, in its feathery softness, seemed to melt into the KJS ' ' ii ! forming a vapor that filled all space between the earth and heaven. Sparrows were hopping from limb to limb, causing showers of feath- ei ' y flakes to fall to the ground. Li the distance, fields, wood and sky seemed to meet in an impenetrable white fog. Should a picture of equal beauty be painted on canvas, the heart of the artist would throb with joy. Dreams of future greatness would fill his mind as he imagined monarchs gazing in admiration at his work. We daily are confronted with sucli scenes, yet we appreciate them not for our " eyes are holden " and m ' c fail to see the wonderful pictures which on- ly the hand of God can paint. — ALLAN FINDLING, ' 16. 14 THETIPTONIAN Aunt Sarah ' s Album 1 — 1 -| rXT SARAH had been airing her (juilts and was taking the hist one |3_X| from the line when I entered the gate. Hhe handled this hist quilt g very carefully, and after we had gone into the living room — a home- like place, with its old-fashioned furniture, rag carpet and spinning wheel — I asked if I might examine the quilt. It was a beautiful creation of silk, satin and calico, joined together by quaint stitchings; a quilt such as is verj dear to the hear of the one who has made it. It was very odd, each corner being joined by fancy stitches of dif- ferent colored floss, and was made of many colored pieces. The center was also of intricate patchwork, but in it the stitches were of blue floss. " It is a beautiful quilt, Aunt Sarah, " said I. " Yes, it is my relation quilt. I call it my family album. This corner, which you see is joined by red floss, contains " — And I knew that Aunt Sarah was going to take me back to her land of memories, some sad, others humorous, but all very sweet, because they were Aunt Sarah ' s, for she was one of the dearest old, yet young ladies, I have ever known. " This corner in red, " she continued, " contains pieces connected v th my only brother ' s family. Those corners in brown, yellow and pink, are con- nected with my three living sisters. The center, " here she paused for a mo- ment, " is made up of pieces connected with myself, my children and my chil- dren ' s children. " This piece. " she continued, with a bit of pride, pointing to a piece of silk in the corner, stitched in pink, " was sent to me by a nephew, who was a missionary in China. " " And this piece of calico in the corner, " said I, " isn ' t it odd? " " Yes, but my aunt thought it very grand when her father brought it home to her for a birthdaj- present. He has gone to B — , over about fifty miles of corduroy roads, and traded five bushels of corn for enough like this to make a sun-bonnet. " This, " pointing to a piece of homespun in the last corner, " is a piece of one of my grandmother ' s best dresses when she was a girl: she used to tell me how long it took her to make it. I wonder how the girls of todny would like, to not only make, but Aveave their own dresses. " " I know I shouldn ' t. " said I, emphaticall.v. " To my mind, " continued Aunt Sarah, " the center of this (|uilt is the best. This piece, " pointing to a fragment of dainty flowered dimity, " was one of my first party dresses. I met Silas the first time I wore it. I remember the first time I wore the dress like this piece of calico. I had taken the eggs and butter to town in the old wagon and was just returning home, when the horse decided to run away. Silas, who was walking along the road, managed to stop old Prince and, although it was dangerous for Silas, yet it was lucky too, for I asked him to call and — well, that was the only time I asked him, he always asked me after that. THE TIPTONIAN 15 " This, " pointing to a bit of white satin, " is the last of my wedding dress. Silas liked me in it, ' ' and she put the precious relic to her lips. " This piece is a portion of my eldest daughter ' s first party dress, the one beside it is a piece of her daughter ' s first party dress. It seems as if our first party dresses carry the sweetest memories. " She paused, thinking, I suppose, of the evening when she wore for the first time her dimity party dress. With a little laugh she continued to explain about the other pieces; each one a memory gem to her. ilany were full of sadness, as that piece of the dress of the little daughter, who had died at the age of seven, and the bit of gingham from the first waist of her only son. I left her, — dear Aunt Sarah, — crying over a handkerchief of Silas ' s. I needed no explanation of this. I knew how, in the prime of life, he had been killed by a train while saving the life of a little child, and that they ha d used the handkerchief to bind his head. Aunt Sarah seldom spoke of it and this evening she turned her face toward the little graveyard on the hill, tears in her eyes and a great sadness in her hart, — that sadness which is produced by memories of " if it only could have been, " and I, feeling out of place, stole softly away. — INDIA THOMAS, ' 14. The Church in Lantern Yard ly lHE interior of tli( little wiiite chapel in Lantern Yard was very plain. |v | The walls were without paper and the floor was without a cai-pet. KS The benches were arranged in two rows, one on each side of the room. The pulpit was on a platform which was raised about two feet from the floor. Altogether, it was not a very cheerful place and on the dark and foggy day of Silas Marner ' s trial, it was made more gloomy by the light of the candles. They spread a weird, yellow gleam over the faces of the people, making them look quite ghastly. While in the remote and darker corners it seemed as though shadows could be discerned creeping about. There was a row of chairs, on the platform on which were seated the men of authority, and over each face was spread a most unexplainable ex- pression, and " looking past the solemn exterior of their countenances, you could readily see that they wei-e not entirely averse to showing their supposed ability to judge. " Down on the left side sat William Dane, " on whose face lurked a self- complacent suppression of inward triumph. " In the next row sat Sarah, looking somewhat pale and decidedly pretty, and when the lots had declared Silas guilty, there passed over her face an expression almost of relief. The small room was quite full of people of the coranuinity in whose life this theft had been quite an event, and they had all flocked eagerly to see the outcome. On a small bench in the vestry sat Silas Marner, an expression of ti-ust- ing simplicity was on his face, while he was eagerly awaiting the verdict which should strengthen or destroy his faith in God. — WILDA FOSTER, ' 16. THE TIPTONIAX A Trolly Ride R l HKKE is pi ' oliably no uioie Ix-autiful valli v in all of Indiana ' s fair ex- |vl | pa2ise, than that through which the River Wabash niajestieally flows. K S A feeling of awe possesses the beholder as he gazes for the first time upon the handiM ' ork of the Creator and happy is the traveler who, in a rreeptivc mood, enters that valley of ui-andenrs. One mid-fall day, I had an invitation to join a parts ' of pleasure seekers in Xortlieni Indiana. After spendini; ' the day in Kiii)inson Park, our party returned to Lafayette by way of the Ft. Wayne and Wabash Valley Road, making the return on one of the " owl ears. " We had all gathered on the rear platform of the car, telling stories and singing songs, then conversation lapsed, — surely at the psychological moment, for the ear rushed into the darkest of the high-walled clefts, in the upper part of the miniature canyon. The journey now became a race down the grade of the Avinding, silvery, shimmering river — a true pathfinder! There was little chance for speech, even if the overawing grandeurs of the picturesque water-trail, seen in their most impressive presentment, as al- ternating vistas of shining moonlight, autimin-tintd trees and depths of the blackest shadow, had encouraged it. The incline was rather steep and the hiss and whistle of the brakes, the harsh, grinding, sustained note of the wheel-flanges sheering the inner edges of the rail-head on the curves, added to the sharp, piercing, almost incessant air-whistle, were deafening. This medley of sounds was multiplied many fold by the seemingly de- moniac laiighter of the echoes coming from the most bewildering directions. It was certainly a wild ride. The sense of unreality was heightened by the brief glimpses which we caught of the round yellow moon rolling serenely through the heavens. Presently the valley widened and the tranquil river, bordered by end- less fields of standing corn, could be seen in the fleeting distance. The land- scape revealed was the most pleasing, peaceful sight I have ever beheld. This delightful, ever-changing, natural panorama soon disappeared, however, as the moon was obscured by a passing cloud; before this vapory veil was cast aside, the garish artificial light came into view — we were enter- ing the city. -v! — WARD NORRIS, ' 13. THE T I P T O N I A N The Second Stanza (The Story of Richard and Blondel.) |»-_ |T was during the Third Crusade that the Holy Land hnd a aiu ham I J I captured by Saladin. This great disaster caused nuu ' li iiiicf thi-ouiih- ggjggj out all Christendom — so ' much that Frederick Barbarossa, of (ieniia- ny, Phillip Augustus, of France, and Richard the First, of England, eacli raised an enormous army, assumed the cross, and set out determnied to rescue the Holy City. The journey was long and set-med to l)e almost endless to the poor sol- diers who were slowly wending their way toward the city. The hardships which they eneoimtered were so great that the German army was almost de- stroyed in Asia ilinor; while Barbarossa, it is said, was dro-mied while at- tempting to cross a swollen stream. Phillip was already discouraged and this, together with his many disagreements with Richard, finally caused him to turn back, refusing to continue on tlie journey with his ungenerous rival, so he with his army returned to Fi ' ance. Indeed, only a few ever reached our Saviour ' s tomb. But Richard, though left to lead alone the small remnant of his men. still pursued his way, and after many days of weary mareliing, finally reached the city. Here his stay was short, as Jerusalem could not be won back from the Saracens. This great disappointment caused him much bitter grief and as he ascended a little hill, y] o ov(M-lnoked the city, he even refused to glance back once more. Accompanied by his attendants, he turned his footsteps toward home. But while at sea, he was shipwrecked by a storm and was separated from his company of men. After this he attempted to reach his dominions by land and, for fear of being captured by his enemies, he disguised himself while travel- ing through Germany. But it was heiv that lie was tinally recognized by the Duke of Austria, who made him a prisoner of tlie Emperor of German.v. It was some time before it was known A liat had become of him. England be- lieved him to be dead and his brother. .Tohn, was about to ascend the throne. But Richard bad one faithful friend. This was a famous minstrel, known as Blondel. who was a ui-e.it favorite ot ' the king. Blondel could not make himself believe that Riehard v;is dead, lie was tilled with a great dis- content: finally his I ' estlessness lieeame so great that he determined to go in search of his mast ' i-. He wandeivd through Palestine and throughout Eu- rope, stopping at the castles long enough to sing the songs which be and Richard had composed while together, feeling sure that the kine voul(l an- swer if once he could hear his voice. Time after time he was disappointed, but he was not yet discouraged. He kept on until he reached Germany, with hopes as great as when he started more than nine months before. Pausing at many great castles, he sang, but 18 THETIPTONIAN received no i-esponse. From one tower to another lie went only to lie luiiui- swered still. After many weary wandei ' inj s he eanie to the stronji ' walled castle of Loewenstein. Almost hopelessly he paused beneath the high hattlemeuted tow- er and began to sing one of the French songs which he and Richard had com- posed in happier days; a song which was known only to these two. Scarcely had he finished the first stanza, when he heard a voice from the great tower above take up the second. He had found his king! Blondel hastened back to England and secured the ransom that was de- manded as the price of Richard ' s freedom. John, who, with the connivance of the king of France, had kept the knowledge of his brother ' s captivity from the English people, and even paid his captor to keep him prisoner, was much alarmed when he received the cryptic message from the king of France — " Look to yourself; the devil is unchained. " But Richard was generous and forgave his unnatural brother, while the unselfishness of the faithful minstrel gained for him the title of " The Faithful Blondel. " — GRETA BARLOW, ' 15. To The End of a " Path l - l ATE one summer afternoon we found ourselves driving slowly through l tA,! one of the most picturesque regions of rural New England. To the tl Siyi west of tile road rose a path leading the way up a gently sloping hill to a quaint old mansion. This was our destination. It was a very beautiful place, with ivy-covered walls; smoke was curling hospitably from a huge chimney at one side of the building, near which flowed a natural spring of soft and pleasant water. In front stood a huge elm tree that had withstood the storms of more than a hundred winters: near it liloonied a bed of many- colored flowers. The sun had descended almost below the horizon and the clouds, which were floating above, caught some of its rays and reflected their golden beams on the windows of the old mansion, until it seemed to smile ui)Oii us with a cordial welcome. — BLANCHE HASKETT, ' 14. THE TIPTONIAN The Last Day l -f |LL day it had been snowing. A strong, driving wind was blowing out |3__t.| of the north. It was very cold in the little eai)in on the liillside. The T| | snow sifted in througli the eraeks and crevieies and lay. in spotless white purity njion the tioor. Outside it was piling in great drifts aboiit the door. Within was going on a battle between life and death. A small child was lying on a pallet of straw, wrapped in an old ragged blanket. It was a beautiful child of probably foia- years, with hair like golden sunbeams and eyes of heaven ' s own blue. Beside the pallet sat a woman, her face white and haggard. Want was plainly visilde everywhere. Suddenly the child awoke. " lamina. " it called, in a wc;di and trembling voice. " Yes, darling, " answei-ed the wonjan and came and l ent over the little one. " ] lan]ma, " has pajia cduic -et. ' " " . o, but do not worry; lie will probably cMime before long. " The woman shuddered as she thouglit of what his coming would bring. " 1 does wish him wouhl turn, for 1 is .so hungry. Do you tink him will bi-ing anything to cat whe n him does turn. ' " " 1 dou " t know. " " I hope him does, for 1 is so hungry and 1 is so cold. Is you cold, mam- ma ? ■ ' The woman remained silent. Her baby was d.ving — dying for want of food. What should she do when it was gone? She w ould have nothing on which to bestow her love, nothing to love her in return. Once her home had been bright and happy — uow it was dark and sad. She could not suppress the tears as these thoughts surged through her brain. A sob burst from her lips which caused baby to o|)en lier eyes ami ask, " ilamnia, is you eryin ' ? Please don ' t cry. " The last was hardly audible. The mother started to her feet and .snatched her baby 1o her breast, as if to stay by force the fast fleeting spii ' it. The child put her arms around her mother ' s neck and managed to sa.v: " Tell papa — I said— dood — bye. " Just then the clouds partiMJ and tli( sun burst through, robing the world in a gown of sparkling splendoi. The last ray crept into the little cab- in, touching the woman and her baby. Baby ' s blue eyes lifted a inonu nt aiul just then the simbeam vanished, taking with it the soul of the little child. — VERA SWAB, ' 14. THE TIPTONIAN The Country School House " Still sits the school house by the road, A ragged beggar sunning; Around it still the sumachs grow, And blackberry vines are running. " — John Greenleat Whittier. ly l HE little, white, frame school house nestled in a small oak grove some |v | few paces from the old turnpike. The great oaks seemed like mighty gggg giants as they nodded and murmured their welcome to the visitor, coming over the ancient stile and up the path to the great wide door, as children had done years before. To the visitor, entering the small, low-eeilinged room for the first time, it would seem as if he had stepped into an old curiosity shop, which held in- numerable treasures of the past. The quaint, home-made benches and desks were marred " with the .iack-knife ' s carved initial. " In front stood the tall desk of the master, " deep-scarred by raps official. " On the desk was an ancient ink stand, containing a quill pen, the feather of which pointed upward to the low ceiling, made of hewn planks, laid as in the barn lofts of the pres- ent day. A rudely constructed stand held a dictionary, much mutilated from ill-treatment and long use, while a faded wood-print of George Washington adorned the walls. — OMER HOSIER, ' 15. ON PATRIOTISM. O Patriots, our country ' s heroes true! Ye were the ones who gave our nation life; Ye faced the foe through years of bloody strife And gave to us our dear " Red, White and Blue. " O, may we ne ' er forget our debt to you, Who followed martial drum and shrilling fife To face the cannon ' s mouth, with horror rife; Who drained unto the dregs life ' s bitter rue. May this our land be known o ' er all the earth. As one within whose broad expanse remain Those liberties for which your hearts have bled. Who, in its infancy, gave love ' s true worth, That o ' er its heights and plains of golden grain. Might wave that flag for which your blood was shed. — DORA L. DOVERSBERGER, ' 13. THE TIPTONIAN TWILIGHT. The crimson sunset fades to purple hue; And snow-capped clouds are forming in the west; The little birds are cooing in their nest; And trees are sparkling with the dripping dew. Seme tints of yellow mingle with the blue; And all the world sinks to a quiet rest; Repose so peaceful nothing can molest, As twilight hides the landscape from our view. O gentle, peaceful Twilight, how we love The welcome silence thou hast brought to earth! Our hearts with rapture learn to look above For love, and joy, and happiness and mirth. With thee our fancy visits realms afar, And mounts on wings, to meet the evening star. — ELMA MICHEL, ' 13. THE TIPTONIAN FACULTY. Just a moineiit, please !

Beyond thy peaceful portals care is rife. All this I view and hesitate, afraid. — MYRON SERIGHT, ' 13. SENIOR CLASS ORGANIZATION Class Colors Class Flower Old Gold and Black. Pink Rose. Officers.

We watch thee with thy plumage of bright hiie. Go darting past, then near thy mate alight; List to thy lay which wins her love so true. We thank thee for thy joyous melody. Which frees our spirits sad, from every care. And leads us by its gentle warblings low. To seek the happiness we learn from thee.

THE TIPTONIAN The Sophomores ly lIlE Soiihomores are a nondescript lot, composed of " prop. " boys, gro- |vl | cers ' boys, railroad magnates, a printer ' s devil and a minister ' s son. gg They also have a girls ' basket ball team which holds the championship over all the other girl teams in the school, their standing being one thousand per cent. It was four members of this class, who founded the Ruffians ' Associa- tion and brought it to its present stage of development. Anthony McEntee is Mighty JMutt of the First Degree and " Scuddy " Myerly is Loafing Loren, Master of Elegant Ceremonies. Private Vernon, (since reformed), was at one time a member in high standing as is shown by the eiit of his sweater coat in the above picture, and, with his coat collar turned up about his ears, Lem-Fitz Kinder used to be seen haiuiting the ways that are rough. But enough of this ! THE TIPTONIAN 1 Wn ' 5 ? f IP ' f iv;, i In considering this class, it were crvielty to forget such an example as the vice-president, " Mop " Foster seen wearing one of his numerous medals (in the above picture). It has been found that the Sophomore class can always be relied upon to lend a hand or an occasional dime to help any kind of a school enterprise, and their rooters are the best in school. Three of their members have been volun- teered for service in the Glee Club, and four for the Sympathy Orchestra (long rest its tunes). The quality of the ' 15 Athletes has gained places for them on the var- ious team.s and, in passing, let us express due appreciation for the worli done by Coughlin in the County Field Meet.

The two Freshmen basket ball teams made sport for the basket ball bugs during the winter season and al- though their football and baseball teams were never seen in suits, we heard ru- mors of some stirring encounters between them and the Departmentals. Yes, Aunty, they are very young and that may account for their queer ways. 1 ' hat their development was along the proper lines, however, was shown when they leased the Martz for a night and gave a motion picture show for the benefit of the school. This is the spirit that touches the hearts of the upper classmen and we again feel it our duty to commend this form of iiastime to the first and second year classes. THE TIPTONIAN Freshmen History ? THE TIPTONIAN t t Ml USIC X( ' E tlie high school is the final college for most people, it must necessarily ich such branches as will develop a cultured, broad-minded people. There is no other one- study, which will broaden the mind more, and develop an appreciation for tlie finer things of life, than does the study of nuisic. For the p.ist yrar and a half, we have had with us, in the city schools, a man who is a competent instructor along these lines, a man of cultiuc and of personal worth. His foree- fulncss (if mind and his tireless energy have never failed him in his eft ' orts to accomplish something in the musical work. Too much credit can not be given Harris R. Vail for the services he has rendered to the school. Never was the musical department as well organized as now ; never has there bee n so strong a sen- timent on the part of the students to investi- gate the world ' s masterjjieces and to appre- ciate the world ' s best singers. Jlr. Vail is responsible for this interest. Xot content to be supervisor of music in the ordinary sense, he has trained the pupils for musicales and recitals, the proceeds of which were given to equip the cosy music room on the third floor of the school building, and to the purchase of a fine piano, a Victrola and a splendid library of music. His work in producing the two theatri- cals, " The National Troubadours " and " Sing- bad, tlie Sailor, " can never be fully repaid. Too much credit can not be given IMr. Vail, and to say that the students appreciate him is but a faint appreciation of how his work is re- garded by all. THE TIPTONIAN Girls ' Quartette.

We here present them to you in action, gentle reader, trusting that fond memories will be brought to mind and snatches of midnight revelry recalled. a w .jv- j -anw Dramatics in the High School I HE year just, past has marked the rise of a great interest in amateur |vl | theatricals and in other forms of elocutionarj work as well. The stu- JSSSSSi dents and faculty and also the general public have been very much pleased by the progress made in this work, as it has brought to view a considerable amount of latent talent and furnished excellent training for the student body, both in presentation and appreciation. The preparation and rendition of the various plays has afforded a pleasant and profitable relaxa- tion from regular school duties and has proven that Tipton high school stu- dents can do a few things that are not called for in the texts, and what is more, can do them well. The music work of the schools has been largely com- bined with that of dramatics and thus improvement has been added to both. Following the example of the last two senior classes, the Class of Thir- teen, assisted by members of the other classes, presented Shakespeare ' s " Tam- ing of th Shrew, " on Friday evening, January 31st, under the skillful direc- tion of Mr. Eugene Le Clerc. This admirable comedy was presented in a thor- oughly creditable manner. Enola Daum, as Katharina, the Shrew, played the part well. Edith Scally, as Bianca, Ward Norris, as Baptista and Myron Se- right as Hortensio, did the minor parts in a thorough manner. Good support was given by the remainder of the cast. The students feel very proud that they have done so well with such a difficult piece. The work of putting on this play has been well repaid by the added interest in Shakespearean study, which was aroused by it. On Friday evening, November 27th, the high school chorus, assisted by almost a himdred pupils from the grades, presented a musical fantasia and pot-pourri entitled " The National Troubadours. " The play was elaborately costumed and was replete with drills, songs and dances representative of the various nations. A packed house greeted this play and when the performance closed, the music work being done in our schools was well and favorably kno-mi to all. j ' ' ' The dramatic hit of the year was furnished by the high school, when on Friday evening, April 11th, the students presented Walthall ' s comic opera in three acts. " Singbad, the Sailor. " Ernest Rosenthal, as Singbad, was well assisted by Don Pyke as Hassan, his faithful slave. The sparkling comedy of the play, as presented by these two was not without high appreciation. Enola Daum, as Queen Gulnora, did her part in her usual excellent manner. Esther Cougill and J. Forrest Eaton as Zuleika and Murad respectively, scored a de- cided hit in their parting scene, as ] Iurad leaves for the war. In this, they were well supported by the Drunnner Girl chorus, composed of thirty mem- bers of the girls ' glee club. Edna Bunch, as Princess Aminta, sang a clever sketch, assisted by Ernest Rosenthal. This iiuinber was one of the many hits ol " the evening ' , and was excellently done in that baby manner which Miss Bunch assumes with snch laughable results, Elma Michel, as La ula, the yiiiL;in ' 4- (iirl, rendered a charming solo, ' •A " Woman ' s Love, " and Luther Kiehman, as the Caliph of Bagdad, gave a ti ' uly operatic touch to the performance by his striking rendition of the ca- liph ' s song. A chorus of Tipton ' s charming high school girls — every one of whom could sing — furnished excellent Mii)ii(irt fm- the work of the cast. All in all, the opera was a thori)ii-li sn ' -ccss and those who heard it were imanimoiis in saying that it was the liest production ever put on by local people. ' ■ ' - J We may well be proud of all we have achieved during the past year, and the elegant music room at the high school building, which has been com- pletely equipped with the proceeds from the performances, attests both the labor and ability of the students and the generosity and appreciation of the l)ublie.

THE TIPTONIAN Oratory ly l ILE progress made in oratory during the past year has been very gratify- | | ing to all and has as its reward the winning of the silver trophy cup BSSSSi which was lost to Goldsmith in 1912. Tipton was handicapped by a late stai-t, but despite this, three students were able to present their orations in the primary which was held at the high school auditorium, Friday evening. Kent Little spoke on " The Battle Cry of the Farmer, " Esther Cougill oj; " Lest We Forget, " and Enola Daum on " Joan of Arc. " A good musical program was rendered by the high sehool chorus. The decision of the judges gave Enola Daum first place and Esther Cougill second. In the final award of places on the county contest, Esther lost her position and Tipton was only rep- resented by the one contestant. The county contest, held in Sharp.sville, on April 19th was a good dem- onstration of the value of consistent training and should le a source of grati- fication to the Tipton students, as it shows tlutt the work of the past year has had good results. Enola Daum delivered her oration forcefully and with full regard for the dramatic situations involved. Her sub.iect was well handled and written in an appealing and interesting manner. The work was well done, showing an interest in the subject, productive of a fiiii ' shed oration. The Tipton High School may well be proud of the showing made in this contest, and by every effort should jealously guard the cup and keep it as a treasured possession.

In the first game with Goldsmith, Daniels and Frisz were quite sensa- tioual with their forward pass, which was successfully worked three times. The other games, although of lesser importance, were, on the whole, successful, and drew a large attendance. 1S THE TIPTONIAN Name Brookbank .— Rosenthal Zehner Tipton Hig-h School Basket Ball Team.

Sufficient BSBIg " eats " were taken along and we journeyed to the Chautauqua grounds south of the city. As twilight gathered, a fire was kindled, marshmal- lows were toasted, and stories told. Some of our choicest songs and school yells were rendered. After having all the fun possible, the class returned to town. The various picture shows were attended, the teachers serenaded, and as the moon rose higher, the beverages of the Live Wire Drug Store were en- .ioyed, a mock wedding solemnized and then Capt. Vail gave us the order to break ranks. It was certainly a jolly good time. On the evening of October 31, an optimistic bimeh of Seniors assembled at the residence of Miss Edna Bunch, preparatory to making a raid on the newly married science teacher. We went en masque and took the happy couple unawares. Mr. and Mrs. Horton proved most royal as host and hostess, not- withstanding their surprise. During the evening ' s entertainment, all were as- tonished by the entrance of an old negro " mammy. " ' There was great fun in guessing who this excellent impersonator M-as. It proved to be Mr. Vail. At a late hour, the class repaired to the " B., " declaring a most enjoyable Hal- lowe ' en spent. One of tlie most unique and pleasant social affairs of the second term was the Junior-Senior " Get-Together. " This joint party was held in the music room at the high school building. After a well-arranged program, con- sisting of Victrola numbers, solos and short sketches, Mr. Dodds invited us to the banquet hall. Mr. Patterson, the toast master, called on the teachers and members of the classes for toasts. We had been warned previously that any one voicing a serious thought would be fined five dollars and in all probability be thrown out of the window. The laugliter trust was surely cornered that night. On Friday niglit, lay 8nd, the class was entertained hy the Misses Alice Pyke and liriam Trittsehuh, at the home of the latter. The house was artistically decorated in the class colors and white roses and the evening ' s en- tisrtainment was varied with numerous forms of amusement. THE TIPTONIAN Miss Edna Bunch gave a party for the Seniors at her home west of the city. The trip was made in the largest automobile truck that could be pro- cured. Games and music were enjoyed and the jolly evening passed all too soon. • • Class day was celebrated at the cosy suburban home of Carl Crail. The feast and pleasing time we were afforded will long be remembered by the class of ' 13. « • After having looked forward to a marshmallow toast, the Juniors, on the eve of October 26, carried out their plans by going to Carr ' s Grove, well supplied with that favorite luxury. They returned home at an early hour, and all declared that the first party of the season was a great success. At the home of Othello Powell, the Junior Class was entertained at a Hallowe ' en party, the journey of eighteen miles being made in a hay wagon. The rooms of the Powell home were decorated in keeping with the customs of the season. Leaving at a late hour, all declared the party to be one of the most enjoyable in the history of the class. • « Melba Richards and Martha Hensley were hostesses to the class of 1914 at the home of the former on North Main street. The evening was spent in music and contests and dainty refreshments were served. • • On New Year ' s evening, the Juniors were pleasantly entertained at the home of Miss Mary McConkey on North " West street. Games furnished amuse- ment until midnight, when the party adjourned to ring bells and set off cannon crackers. All Sorts Ij l HE lazy, hazy afternoon draws on to a drowsy close.

The winds blow soft and low across the glens; And songs of robins fill the morning air; While in the woodland tiny flowerets fair Peep timidly from out their leafy dens. About the eaves now chirp the little wrens; And Nature puts her workshop in repair; Her naked woodlands and her shady fens; Her muddy brooks and meadows, brown and bare. Across the sleeping world so dark and still. The gentle South Wind whispers, " Spring has come. " Responsive to her call, the life beneath The dormant clod awakes and blooms, until The songs of birds, the busy bees low hum, Are heard from every woodland, hill and heath. — NINA SMITH, ' 13.

In Autumn, when the leaves have turned to red, And skies are clothed in gray mists overhead, ' Tis then I love to roam in forests wide. Or watch the slowly moving, rippling tide. The leaves will flutter downward one by one; The forests fail to hide the golden sun; The tide will cease to ripple on the shore; And time and tide, and death shall be no more. — ELMA MICHEL, ' 13.

The sky was full of soft gray clouds; The ground was covered with snow; The fence and gate, the trees and shrubs Were white as the earth below. But a sunny gleam shone through the rift In the gray clouds overhead, And brightened each cold and snowy drift. E ' er Its mission on earth was sped. Like a gleam of hope, the little ray. As it shone through the rift above, Smiled down on the earth as If to say, " I bring you a message of love. " — NELLIE DODD, o ) s osenth j low ♦K SOCIETY BRAND CLOTHES and LONGLEY HATS.
