Looking down the long aisle of time lined with vague to-morrows we wonder what they will bring to us and what we will bring to them. Many are going out from the sheltered precincts of our college, not to return but to take up their posi- tion in life. To some it may be a busy one, fight- ing their battles in an uncertain, hungry world. A life of gayety may be the lot of another, and to others a quiet one— surrounded and guarded by dear ones. In whatever sphere we may be found, be it humble or exalted, calm or turbulent, shadowed or full of sunshine, may something of the good we have learned while together help us to live true and use- ful lives. In moments of uncertainty and perhaps despondency may there be recalled an act, smile or tone to encourage us and smooth the pathway. May errors made in these past months lead us on to future success that we may " rise on stepping- stones of our dead selves to higher things " : Like a piece of driftwood Tossed on the billowy main Another plank encounters.

MAY DAY AT WHITELANDS, 1899. BY LADV MARJORIE GORDON. Since it is the intention to form a May Court Club in the College next year, it might interest the readers of Vox to read a description by Lady Marjorie Gordon, of May Day celebrated at Whitelands. A week or two ago when the birds kept telling us May Day was coming, we sighed, and wished we could celebrate it as we did last year. But as we couldn ' t make holiday with our own Ottawa May Court, we thought the next best thing would be to join the festivities at Whitelands College. You know this is a training college for teachers where Mr. Ruskin started the revival of the May Queen customs and ceremonies and where his gifts are still the central feature of the day. So at 9 a. m. on the ist of May, we drove off to Whitelands College, Chelsea. The way in which the song of the birds and the scent of the flowers filled the air in the streets near the park was enough to tell anyone it was May Day. Besidjes, all the ponderous cart-horses were covered with flowers and ribbons, and stepped along most gaily. The buses too, looked more jovial than ever, with pink- nd green ribbons flying from their whips. So we were quite in a May mood when we got to Whitelands College. Inside those doors the air was full of hushed excitement. We went straight to the chapel, which, like all the rest of the building, was fresh and sweet with many flowers. The organ began to play and we heard the sound of singing and of ootsteps growing louder till at last the procession entered the chapel — girls in white dresses and crowns of ivy, walking two by two, and singing the hymn " For all Thy Goodness. " Last of all came thp Queen, in regal rpbes, with last year ' s faded crown on her head and a basket of roses in her hand. She was followed by two ex-queens, and stood in the aisle in front of the altar ; and at the end of the service the Queen gave her roses to be put as an offering on the altar, and the prayer was read which they always have on i hat day for ' ' Thine aged servant — the giver of this day ' s pleasure. ' Then came the hymn All good things around us, ' ' and we slipped out into the cloisters to see the white procession wind out of the chapel door around the garden, while the glad music of the hymn rose into the sky. Of course the right thing would have been to have had the whole celebration in the garden, but unless we had all dressed in fur that would not have been possible. So wc assembled in a big room in which there was as much sunshine and a great many more flowers than in the real garden, not to speak of a beautifnl Maypole and a dias which had an apple-blossom throne and a sort of rustic reredos covered with yellow daisies. Queen Ellen ascended the throne and stood up to make her rather sad little speech of abdication. Her maidens lifted from her head the remains of the royal crown of apple-blossom, and replaced it with a wreath of tendef little forget-me-nofs. Then, amid enthusiastic applause, sho stepped down, and her reign was over. But she still had, and would always have, her gold cross as a pledge and remembrance that she had reigned among her fel[ow atudents as Queen of Love. There were several other of these royal badges to be seen — one worn by a girl who is now teaching at Whitelands. But now an excited whisper, followed by a hush, meaut that the ballot papers were being handed round and that each girl was writing the name of her choice. During the counting there was music ; it seems to be one of the features at Whiielands that every girl can sing, and sing well, too. The Principal came in — he knew the secret. The very flowers held their breath, " The May Queen is Agnes Gourlay " — wild applause. Queen Ellen sprang from her seat on the lower dais and ran to kiss her successor and lead her away to the robing robing room. The Principal took this opportunity to tell the girls of a visit he had made to Ruskin at his north country home. He had found Mr. Ruskin very well, surrounded by flowers and birds and full of interest in the Whitelands May Court. [To be continued ] vox COLLEGir. 5 Graduating Class of 1902. CLASS PROPHESY.

This beautiful array of flowers, whose names, doubtless, you have seen and recognized, have long been known to us all. We have seen them grow in beauty side by side, a, pleasure to the eye, and a constant source of delight to the authorities We have watched them accumulate vast stores of all the leading varieties of knowledge, and we meet to- gether now on the near approach of that time which shall see them scattered abroad, to diffuse, let us hope, the sweet odour of good words and better deeds. But well as we all know them and have known them, who shall pierce the veil which hides that which is to be — who shall attempt to read the inscrutible face of fate or question the sphinx of des- tiny. Yet, as we here lay the foundation of those beautiful superstructures of an after li(e — as we here develop those tendencies which will subsequently influence our actions, it might be possible to present in some small measure the future lot of the indi- vidual members of this bright garland. The fame of sweet Irillium, ' ' for instance, has already gone abroad, and her liteiary abilities have lately been discovered and commented upon by ' ' Frizzle Top, " the local genius, and in the dim, mysterious vista of the future I seem to see her trilling thrillingly as of yore, while wondering mul- titudes applaud and welcome with glad hearts the rising star. 2. Our " Shamrock, " with her happy, contented nature, has surmounted all the difficulties which beset tae path of the struggling artist, and the mystic mirror shows her an important member of the Royal Academy. Her works have achieved world-wide renown, and are hung in the galleries of the House, the Vatican, and, oh ! pinnacle of fame ! in the frqnt parjors of the leading ladies ' col- leges of the American continent. To her handsome villa of the highlands she retires for a well-earned rest, ann there we see her, wilh joyful abandon, weeding the onion bed, which promises odorous joys for sleepless nights. 3. " Japonica " : — Fate has decreed that Japonica will wander far over land and sea, and eventually take up life in a far off eastern country. There I see her revelling in tea gardens and roses, and most artistically clothed in the fanciful draperies of the eastern woman. Surrounding her are men, clever and learned, who seem to enjoy her delicious tea and appreciate at the same her flow of wit and humor, and further, I see one who stands above all other men in her heart, and associate with him much that speaks of peace and happiness. Nevertheless, I see trials and sor- rows which the natural serenity of her disposition will enable her to overcome. 4. " Hollyhock " : — Who would expect to see our quiet and dignified Hollyhock occupying the enviable position, the queen of society, in a western city.? Her youthful aversion to tripping the light fantastic, and her bright smile and ready wit make her the life of every social gathering. Her hand has been sought and won by Augustus Courtleigh Vanderbilt. In her dreamy moments she wonders if she could ever have, been a demure, retiring bird at the O. L. C. 5. I see our " Four-o-Clock " transplanted to the congenial soil of Marlbank, where the loving friend ship of her earlier days will be converted into a life long attachment with best Marlbank cement. There she will flourish brightly, having resigned all thought of the stage and the hard work which such a life demands. Her greatest pleasure is to sit dreamin in the twilight, and often, when the inspiration upon her, to write thrilling poems. 6. " Bachelor Button " — Now mtends returning to her maternal ancestor but if the mystic ancestor deceives me not she wi not remain there. For it will be much more plea sant to enjoy that freedom to come and go for whic she vainly pines, and which, perhaps, might not b opened under the parental roof more than unde that of her alma mater. Along a country road I see her wending ' her ' ay on her arm a basket in which are stored away wit 6 VOX COLLEGII. wifely care jellies, cold soup and a few fresh eggs. All these delicacies are to be gratuitously distri- buted among her husband ' s and indigent parish- ioners. As she travels along the dusty highway, she wishes that a kind conference will see fit to station them next time in Oshawa or some other city where street cars can relieve the monotony of the distance. 7. But while some find happiness and content in the glare of publici y, others find the simple joys of domestic life more satisfying to the heart, and so as to dip into the future, I seem to see our little Johnny-jump-up " putting her college training to good us ' e in keeping the household accounts. Her coquettish tendencies have led to a change in posi- tion from that of typewriter and stenographer to head of the household. There is a certain desire to find out things, almost amounting to inquisitiveness, which develop later in life, but a well balanced brain and the firm but ten- der guidance of her husband lead her safely through the dangers with which such a tendency might beset her paths, and she emerges triumphantly to view with placidity, a life of peace and contentment. 8. Ten years from now I see our bright and radiant " Morning Glory " not dallying with the festive coone, but instead, working devoutedly among the heathen in the Fiji Islands. At first she finds it difficult, but soon she sweetly soothes the savage heart with soft poems of the sun- set. Anon she arouses them to interest and exciting thrills by scenes from Macbeth, or she improves their morals by " Gi me at e ' er hand saw. " And so |»m day to day she persues her gentle ways and wins m from their fierce and deadly feuds on the field battle to indulge instead of elocution — any en- unter equally sanguinary but perhaps less latal. 9. And what about Jack in the Pulpit? ' all we allow her desires to make her own future. ) ! no I that would be altogether too prosiac. So, itead of going to Darkest Afric.i or being travelling jretary to the Y. W. C. A. in the dim distant :ure, we see her in her own small but well ap- inted laboratory experimenting with paragoric, Dthing syrup and new food for infants and a few ler harmless chemicals, while a pleasant visaged man idly strokes his Titian moustache, dreaming ppy dreams of the hours spent in the end class- )m of the O. L. C. And now the mystic scroll is about done. I seem to see dimly another name more shadowy even than the rest. It is easier, much easier, to judge of others in perspective than of ourselves, our own hopes and fears obscuring that clearness of vision which we see whrt is surely in store for others. Yet, me thinks, I see as in a vision an aged spin- ster whose modest attainments in domestic science and other useful accomplishments expend them- selves in alleviating the necessities of the poor. As though lost in reflection she sits before the open fire- place, and through her mind there float visions of golden time, bright faces of laughing girls, light- hearted and happy, and deeply she wonders in how far the prophetic vision of the seer of the class of 1902 has become accomplished.— ' Black Eyed Susan. " (class poem.) The graduating class of naughty-two l8 the very best class of the year ; They ' re clever, good-natured and quick to eschew, And pretty, no need to compare. First there is Mies Hollyhock, stately and tall, She ' s one of our M. — E. — L. — S.; We count her the best of them all, Her qualities we cannot tell. Jack in the pulpit stands stiff and firm, Stiff with her drooping head she stands. We all must toe the mark in turn Or we will soon be in the happy land. Bachelor Buttons, we all know her When she sported round on the green ; She ' s dead in love with a young i)reacher. And soon no more will be seen. Then there ' s Four o ' Clock, not two o ' clock, For she never comes early, but late. If she isn ' t there at two o ' clock, Of course it will do at eight. The Morning Glory is the beam of the day. Chucked full of fun to the nrek ; If you ever feel blue, just go her way, And she ' ll fill you with mirth by the peck. Did you ever see Trillium ? the flower of the cup, You ' ll hear her from morning till night, She gets on the platform, her music to drop. And he will ad-Vance with delight. vox COLLEGII. 7 It never would do to leave the Shamrock out For the Irish are not behind yet ; The jokes will fly out like a water-sj out, If her tongue is properly set.

Daisy Harvey. 2)omc0Uc Science The college year has now come to a close, and we are sorry to say we will not spend any more pleas- sant hours in the Domestic Science room on Satur- day morning. Our second course was so interesting that it was with regret that the last lesson came to a close. On Saturday, June 14th, we gave a dinner to some worthy friends from town, and by their smiling faces and complimentary remarks we are assured that they seemed to be satisfied with our attempt. The domestic science girls are much sought after and much in evidence when there is any special service to be done. The two juniors of D. S. class served at the graduate ' s dinner on Friday, June 20th, and were of much credit to their teacher (who was far away) and the class as a whole. Miss Madison, our instructress, bid us farewell on Monday last, and has gone to her home in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We sincerely hope to welcome her back in September and carry on the good work. We are sure that the superintending of the sum- mer cottages and homes will be perfect, and the many tired mothers will have a vacation from the responsibilities which have always depressed them in previous summers. The Dinner. One of the most pleasant and enjoyable of the closing functions of the college was the dinner given by the students of the domestic science class to a few of their friends Saturday evening, June 14th. Precisely at 7 o ' clock the guests assembled at ' the cottage, " and shortly afterwards made their way to the domes- tic science apartments led by Dr. Hare, escorting Miss Nevada Webster, the guest, of honor of the evening. The dining-room was beautifully decorated with the class colors, yellow and white, while bouquets of the class flower, the daisy, adorned the table. Amid such surroundings and especially with such lovely visions " hovering round, it was not surprising that a slight undercurrent of excitement, which is so necessary to the success of any social function, per- vaded the assembly. ' The menu was one that would tempt the most fickle of appetites, each dish proving more enticing than the last. The following is a copy : — SOUP. Consomme a la Royal. FISH. Halibut Souffle. Salted Wafers and Cheese. MEAT. Fricassed Chicken, Rice and Green Peas. SALADS. Tomato and Boiled Dressing. Wafers. DESSERTS. Lemon Pie. Orange Sherbet. Macaroons. Salted Almonds. Chocolates, Cafe Noir. Orange Punch. After ample justice had been done to the various courses His Honor Judge McCrimmon, in his usual pleasant manner, proposed the toast to the young hostess, and added, with a merry twinkle in his eye. that he thought they might all be called ' ' jolly good fellows. ' ' Mr. Thompson then replied on be- half of the ladies. After this the guests adjourned to ' the cottage, " where they met their charming young hostesses, and spent a short half hour in music and conversation, when the gathering broke up. Among those who sat down were : Miss Nevada 8 VOX COLLEGIL Webster, the graduate of the year in domestic science, who was becomingly gowned in pink organ- die ; Dr. and Mrs. Hare; His Honor Judge Mc- Crimmon and Mrs. McCrimmon, His Honor Judge Mclntyre and Mrs. Mclntyre, Mr. and Mrs. Dryden, Miss Burkholder, Mr. Rice and Mr. Thompson. Great praise is due Miss Madison, who superin- tended the preparation, and to whose tack and judg- ment was due in a large measure the success of the function. Xocale- " Mrs. Wiggs " gives us many bright little snatches of wit from " the cabbage patch. " Livin ' is like quiltin ' — -you orter keep the peace an ' do ' way with the scraps.

The prosperity of the country and the destiny of a grand old monarchy were enveloped in forbidding gloom, for the death of the much-be- loved Princess Charlotte left no direct heir to the throne. Suddenly, however, the Duke of Kent, third son of George HI., determined to marry, and in July. 1 8 18, Virtoria, daughter of Duke Franz of Saxe-Cobourg, became his wife, the future mother of the future Queen of England. George III. reigned ten years, and his successor, Duke of Clar- ence as William IV., only seven. At the decease of the latter no one stood between the throne of Great Britain and Victoria, only child of the Duke of Kent, who had lived but a few months to enjoy his paren- tal happiness. Strangely, quiet and simple was the childhood of the little princess so early destined to greatness. From the time she learned to lisp the sacred name of mother that noble woman taught her to entertain for humanity a kind and respectful, regard ; im- planted in her white soul love of the good and beau- tiful ; instilled in her young mind the desire to be a noble woman. No doubt to this absolute simplicity and the sound judgment of a loving mother, com- bined with her own strength of character, was due the dignity, purity and lofty integrity which charac- terized our sovereign throughout her public and private life. The fact that she would some day be queen of England was carefully guarded from the iittle maiden ' s knowledge until her twelfth year. Then her governess gently told her of her nearness to the throne of Great Britain. When she grasped the full purport of the words, innocent wonder filled the deep, blue eyes as she exclaimed with simple earnestness, " I will be good, " and her long, un- stained record shows how faithfully was the promise kept. In 1837 the event transpired which changed a girl into a woman, a princess into a qu een. William IV. had but breathed his last when messengers were hastening to Kensington Palace to bear to his suc- cessor the summons to the throne, and at eleven o ' chick on the sam.e day the young, queen met her first council, when the prelates and the chief men of the realm, kneeling, pledged their troth and took sacred oath of allegiance to one " who ruled over the land that the great Macedonian could not con- quer and over a continent of which even Columbus YOX COLLEGIi. never dreamed ; to the queen of every sea and of nations of every zone. " But not until the following year was the coronation with maguificent pagent celebrated. Westminster Abbey can remember in its long history of state ceremonial and splendor no more brilliant spectacle than was presented within its walls on that glorious June day. Procession after procession passed into the grand old edifice, each adding to the richness of color and glittering display of costly gems. As the hour drew near for the Queen ' s arrival all was eager- ness and expectancy, but as the marvellous cortege of royalty filed up the aisle the great assembiage was inspired with a deep solemnity. Not the spirit of a holiday display pervaded the gathering, but rather the reverence of a religious ceretnbny, and no one more than the maiden Queen realized and felt its sanctity. What a picture of youthful purity she presented, robed in the royal prrple— so beautifully fragile, yet so. dignified, while the graceful poise of the queenly head and the sweet seriousness of the fair face expressed unspeakable emotion. Following the acclamations was the administering of sacra- ment, the blessing of the ruby coronation ring, the homage rendered her majesty after she was en- troned ; then cannon thundered, trumpets sounded, the band, amid the plaudits of the vast throng, struck up, " God Save the Queen, " and so was Eng- land ' s greatest sovereign wedded to her kingdom. On the loth of February, 1840, Albert ot Saxe- Cobourg became the husband and Prince Consort of England ' s Queen. The marriage ceremony was celebrated in Chapel Royal, St. James ' Palace. The day, which in the morning appeared dark and mis- erable, discarded its melancholy aspect as the wed- ding bells pealed joyously and the sun burst forth in glorious splendor, causing all nature to echo the heart-joy of the Happy, Happy Pair. " With reverence one speaks of the Queen ' s happy days, when her duties were shared by the tenderest of hus- bands, wisest of friends. Her life was filled with flowers and sweet music, but soon the flowers faded, the sweet music died away leaving but a beautiful memory of perfect bliss to her who was left to dis- charge, unaided, the functions of her exalted station through long years of widowhood. The death of William IV. brought to the glorious empire of England many changes. Hitherto the sovereign with the aristocracy of the land monopo- lized the law-making, chosing and throwing aside ministers at their pleasure, while the voice of the people had died away to a whisper. The accession of Victoria marked the beginning of popular states- manship, awakening English loyalty in all its inten- sity. It also meant severing the connection between the kingdoms of England and Hanover, which had existed since the reign of George I., and the estab- lishment of which had cost the English people life and money quite disproportionate to the benefits derived from it. With the rule of the young Queen was inaugurated a reign of purity and a removal of a court loathed by her subjects. The story of the influence of Queen Victoria is the history of the British Empire. By gathering around her a galaxy of men of genius and power, whose fore- most thought was the promotion of the people ' s in- terest, England has made greater advances in the paths of progress and enlightenment than charac- terize any preceeding century since our glorious country became a nation. Her influence transcends that of all other rnonarchs. Peace was ever her motto, and in all affairs of state, as in all her actions, was manifested that deep wisdom mellowed by Christian love. She shared with the humblest peasants the joys and heartaches of motherhood ; nor did this noDle woman deem it unworthy her posi- sition to smooth their furrowed brow and mingle with their tears her own of deepest sympathy, while to the children she was not Queen of England but a dear friend interested in their little triumphs and grievances. When sorrow ' s wings enveloped her, robbing her of her dearest on earth, with what forti- tude, patriotism and silent fidelity were the burdens of her kingdom borne and the duties discharged, laying aside private grief that the ever-increasing cares of government might not be neglected. This " noble woman, nobly planned, " will ever remain a monument to self-sacrifice, which is the secret of all nobleness and pure influence. For sixty-four years Queen Victoria ruled over a vaster empire than has been, and in the closing of the nineteenth century she left her earthly throne to be crowned in heaven. Her mortal remains have been laid reverently and tearfully in the mausoleum, leaving us memory and regret. The vase is broken but its perfume shall sweeten and ennoble the lives of men through countless ages to come. " Superior as mother, beautiful as wife. Amidst the throng of Britain ' s isle she stood. In modest raiment faultless as her life, The type of England ' s worthiest womanhood. She rests in God ' s peace, but her memory stirs The air of earth as with an angel ' s wings, And warms and moves the hearts of men like hers, The sainted daughter of our Saxon kings.

The Past Year one of the Most Successful in Its History — A Pull Account of the Proceedings The Winners of Medals, Di- plomas and Prizes. , The past week has witnessed the su- mmer closiag lestivites of this great ColU ' .g »-, and never in its thii ty years oi ' exi tencMi were they more successful or more thoroughly, enjoyed, botht by our townsijeople and outside educat- ionists and friends who journeyed to Whitby, showing the ever-widening influence of the Ontario. Ladies ' Col- lege. The proceedings began last Fri- day evening, and continued up to Mon- day evening, when the graduates ' lun- cheon, admirably managed, closed the series of entertainments, all of .which were carried through with grace and dignity, emblematic of the Ontario Laiii vs ' Co livg; amidst an atmosphere oJ genial culture. King Edward s an- tici{j.aLed coronation was therefore fit- ingly remembered by the very great SUCC3SS of the College ' s closing before the sad news flashed over the wires I hat the coronation had to be postpon- ed on account ot the serious illness of thi King, wh when he was the Prince of Wales visited Whitby in 1861 and was royally entertaiueck at Trafalgar Castle— now the magnificent ' home of the College. vox COLLEGII. Pasb Year ' 5 Work. Th3 past collegiate year, from an educational ix)int of view, was rather above the average int the matters of thorough and satistactory work. In the literary department provision was made for the last two years ' work of a public school ; also the entire, cur- riculum of a collegi.ate institute, to- gether with some extra subjects, such as astronomy, DacteriOiOgy, and ' , some subjects embraced in the second years ' work of the umversity. With few ex- ceptions efficient work was done thro- ughout the entire department, and those students who desired to prepare for departmental or university exami- nations were all successful in prepar- ing their work in the regular college classes, thereby demonstrating the possibility of others having taken the same examinations had they chosen to dio so. For some years not ' a single student has failed that the College has sent up for departmental or univer- sity examinations. W© mention thiai nob because we think it adequately?, represents the lit- erary work of the college, but because it may afford to you some tangible evidence of the class of work that is being done. In the department of musics the students were equally successful. Three took the final examinations in piano and theory conducted by the To- ronto Conservatory of Music, and one of these took second place, being only one mark behind the highest. Two of the students took the final examina- tions in organ conducted by. Toronto Conservatory, and one of these took first place on the list. This is certain- ly; a record, of which there is reason to be proud. The primary and. inter- mediate examinations in piano, organ, vocal, violin and theory, conducted at the College by the Toronto Conserva- tory of Music, proved most cieariy the thoroughness of the work being done. Every candidate passed, and a large percentage took first-class honors. In the development of fine art, some new features were introduced such, iiis wood-carving, pyrography, etc., that gave incroai ed intercot to the work o£ the class. In the deparcmeut of elocution, there was no falling off in merit, as shown by the various rec ' .tals given during the year. The interest in the commercial de- partment was a little above the aver- age, some day studcnta attending from the town for private instruction in phonography and type-writing. The department of domestic, science gave unmistakable signs of increasing vigor and popularity. Some of the brightest students, one oi whom ' was a literary graduate of tha previous year, entered upon the work with zest and enthusiasm and s emed to appreci- ate and enjoy the provision made for their instruction. Some new leatures were introduced, such as lunches and dinners, that helped to swell the . in- terest. It is certainly very encouraging to review the work of the year and mark thci evidences of progress. Judging from present indications there is no likelihood of any deminution in com- petition It least in the near future be- tween the various schools and colleges, hence the absolute necessity of keep- ing in the foreground in equipment accommmodation and teaching staff if the College is to continue to grow and prosper. Located outside the city, nd hav- ing to encounter the popular; fallacy that nothing strictly first-class can be expected elsewhere, it has (been found necessary to exert greateri effortsr in the direction of superiority, thanks do which, little by little, the Ontario Lad- ies ' College is triumphing over this po- pular notion or prejudice, and are reaching such a commanding position amongst the college o£ this country that they are attracting to their halls many of the most desirable and pro- mising students that are seeking high- er education. This accounts for the attendance of this coUegiatev year (be- ing opened withr a larger attendance than that of last -year, and the pros- pect for a large influx of students after the summer holidays is unusual- ly good,. The Objects of tfie uoard. Below is given thei a-eport of the Board of Directors o the Ontario Ladies ' College and Ontario Conserva- tory of Musia to the Methodist Con- ference, as it affords such a excellent view, of the present status of the Col- legQ and its work— The Board of Directors o£ fthei Ont- tario Ladies ' College and Ontario Con- servatroy of Music, Whitby, Ont., take pleasure in presenting toi thist Con- ference their twenty-eight annual re- port. The number of boarders en- rolled is 133 ; the day students 36. Constant and healthy progress has baen the key-note of our endeavor, and iti is gratifying tot all concerned, to know that our aim has been accompli- shed. Each successive year in the history of the College has been markexi by some added interest, either in the shai e of attendance, equipment, or en- largement. Having thoroughly imbibed vox COLLEGil. the spiiit of improvement, our Col- lege cannot stand still— It. must go forward. The great success of the past few years is very encouraging to the mem- bers of the Board, and yet our confi- dence in the tutu re growch and pros- perity of the College is not based on these alone, out on the consciousness of strength and efficiency in the Col- lege management, on the loyal devo- tion of our students to their Alma Mater, on the fresh and unmistakeable signs of a more widespread interest in " the solid and thorough class work that we are doing, and on a more gen- eral and hearty recognition by pro- minent educators of our foremost plao.3 in the education of young women. A prociiss of differentiationt has been takino- place in the minds of thoughtful parents respecting the real merits of the various schools and colleges, and as far as we are abie to judge our Col- lege is steadily rising in the conii- dence and esteem of every member of the community that is in the y.osition to form a correct opinion. We do not hesitate to state that one of our advantages is in being near a large city, and yet; outside the city limits. We are away ' from the artificial and restrictive conditions of city lite In an almsot ideal location, with unrivalled buildings, and with beautiful and ex- tensive play grounds affording ade- quate facilities for exercise in the open air. No wonder then that many vho are feeling the deteriorating physical effects of city environment, or v ho are suffering from cramped and ill- ventilated school rooms throughout the country, ar« coming , to our Col- lege for a newi lease of life as well as for a sound education. It is a con- stant occurrence at the College to hear visitors si3eak of the healthful appearance of our students, as well as our magnificent College property. In other reiK)rts we have given pro- minence to our exceptional literary course extending through two year ' s work of th i University ; also to our advanced Conservatory course in pipe organ, piano, violin, tiieory, guitar, and the marked success of our students in the departmental and musical exami- nations ; aiso to our fine art course under the direction of one of our most able Canadian artists, making siieci.il mention of out-door sketching and l ainting ; also to our extensive cour- ses in oratory, commercial subjects and domestic science. In this rei)ort wiei wish to speak si)ecially of the care we are taking to promote the health of our students. ;E;hysical cultur© m ao iintimately, con- nected with mental and moral culture, as well as hygiene, that we deem it necessary to give a halt hour a day to systematic physical training under the tuition of an expert with a view to the promotion of physical grace( and beauty. Mere exercise may conduce to awkwardness or evea to physical de- formity, if indulged in for the sake of recreation only, and not with a view to the remedying ojf existing physical defects. We intend in the future to give still more attention to this mat- ter, and to make it an important part of our education. The success which our students have achieved in their competitive athletic tournaments with the students of other colleges is a further proof of the opportunities af- forded them for physical exercise. The interest in horse- back riding has Ibeen revived, and during the present ses- sion we have a class of fifteen. An- other provision that we have ' made to ensure the comfort and health of our students is the engagement of a trained nurse, whose services are giv- en to them free of charge. They go to her as to a mother for advice, and oit n her judicious over-sight and at- tention prevent dcotor ' s bills» and promote vigoxoiis health. Several par- ents have expressed iheir high apprec- iation oi this fresh mark of our inter- est in the physical well-being of our students, and have taken pleasure for this leason in recommending our Col- lege to others. Through the kindness of Mrs. Mas- sey Treble our domestic science depart meat has baen greatly strengthened during the year. No young lady now need say that during her College edu- ca.ion sh- is b lag educated away fr. m the home lite, as abundant facilities are bc ' ing afforded to every student to obtain a thorough ' and practical knowledge of household economy, if sho so desire. Th.i rule OL thumb principles, handed down from generation to generation, will not me it tlie wants of this progre- .siv3 age. We need the latest develop- ments of science ai plied not only to the secuiing oi fooa, but to its proi er s dection aad preparation to meet the exigencies of modern life. It has bo en our experience that life in our Collage halls ' tends not only to broaden the mind and arouse the dor- m int intellectual faculties, but to i)ro- mote ..tudaut good le lows hip and a ile- iinefl and dignified deportment. ' i ' he religious li.e of the college is al- so carefully guarded, and much spirit- ual good is being acoomidished. We thank the members of this Conference for the support so cheertuily and ably vox COLLEGIL rendered to our College. Signed on behalf o£ the Board, Geo. A. Cox, Hon. President. Chas.

A steady stream of Visitors saunter- through the rooms in- whichi the art exhibition was held. The improve- ment in this department was again no- ticeable, and all were loud in praise of the unusual excellence ot the work. The display n ot only covered the us- ual exhioit of chinar painting from flowers, out also very fine portrait and landscape work, asi well as some fine si)ecimens of wood barving and phrography. Graduates ' Recital. On Saturday evening the new Franc- es Hall, which is over one hundred feet in length and finely adapted for the purpose, was ' well filled to enjoy a rare treat in the graduates ' recital, thr; program of which was as follows— Reading; " The Party, " Dunbar, Mi ' s Badgley. Reading, " A Charming Wo- man, " Jerome, Miss Hall. Vocal solo, " Let the Bright Seraphim, " (Samson), Handel, Miss Wilson. Reading, " The Angel and the Shepherds, " Lew Wallace. Miss Badgley. Reading, " Margaret the Martyr, " Anon, Mise Hall. Reading, " The ohstractive Hat in the Pit, " Austey, Miss Badgley. Reading, " How Gavin Birse put it to Mag. Lownie " Barrie, Miss Hall. Vocal splo, " Walt;!; Song " (Romeo and Juliet), Counod Mi ss Wilson. Reading, " The Bandit ' s Death, " Tennyson, Miss Bad- gley. Reading, " The English Flag, " Kipling, Miss Hall. One of- the most enjoyaole events in connection ' with the evening ' s program was the elocu- tion contest for a gold medal prize, given by the Hon. Senator Fulford, of Brock ville. There were a number of young ladies taking this course, but the contest had narrowed to two, the interest centreing about Misa Helen Badgeley and Miss Lottie Hall, and ajs each had many admirers, the interest was intense, although a very pleasing feature being that at all times there existed the utmost friendliness - and amiability between the rival contes- tants and their supporters. The sel- ections were varied, and gave ample sco[je for versatility, ranging ' as they did so AS to emorace the humorous, pathetic and tragic. The excellent work of these young graduates reflect mu h cred t upon their ins tructor, Miss Teskey, who, while giving much at- tention to voice and_ gesture, has not neglected the psychic, a phrase so frc quently overlooked in this study. Miss Lottie Hall has a charm ing per- sonality, a rich, full and sweet- toned voice, and a reserve force seemingly unlimited, as no climax is too high for her to reach. In gesture she is grace- ful, natural and impressive, especially in the more tragic roles. The many students md Whitby friends will be interested to learn that Miss Hall contemplates a course of advanced studieis a I the Emerson School of Ora- tory, Boston, and will attentively fol- low! the career of this talented young lady. Miss Badgley possesses an easy manner that at once wins and in- spires confidence in her audience. Her voice is sweet-toned and very flexiolc. Her facial expressioni Ls exceptionally good, heing able to convey her thought with a look or simp ' e gesture. Her movements remind us of the famous Bernhardt, whose grace won from a cov)temix)rary the striking expression " She acts from the crown of her grace- ful poised head to the tips of her dain- ty feet. " Her emotion is spontan- eous and natural, the transitions from " laughter to tears " exhibiting much versatility— in fact Miss Badgley gives tlie impression of enjoying and living her characters. Four numbeis each were rendered, and at the con- clusion of the program so excellent was the work and so close the contest, that the staunchest admirers hesitat- ed at hazzarding a guess or attempt- ing to " i ick the winner.

" Encouragement seems the aim of the excellent teacher. Spirituality. If there is one feature of Ontario Ladies ' College life more than another which receives careful attention, that one is the cultivation of a religious sentiment. It is little wonder, there-: fore, that sucli a, long processioni of CoUoge students wended their way to the Methodist Taoernacle last Sunday evening to join in the service of praise and to hear the Rev. Dr. Brecken, of Mt. iSll son Univor ity, New Brunswi- k, ]r a h ihs tac ca ' aureate sermon. He ably discoursed u yon. the 33rd cha- 1 tor of Isaiah, 6th verse— " And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and, strength of salva- tion; the fear of the Ijord is his trea- sure. " Stability in thine time, Dr. Brecken went on to say, evidently was a reference made by Isaiah to good King Hezekiah during thel troubleous times when the Assyrian army was coming down uixjn him. Isaiah fore- told Hezekiah ' s coming victory. It was in answer to prayer. God always hel])S those who do as (did good Heze- kiah and had confidence in His stren- gth, stability and their salvation. That is why there was no ijanic when the Assyrian hosts came down. Thi is comprehensive of Christ and. the chii tiin age— we trust in the stabili- ty of God. It has been true to us in all times. Even in our time, wisdom and knowledge represent stability as is shown from the unhappy struggle in South Africa, and its final influence for good. Jesus shall reign. He de- sired to give a practical, talk to our young friends gathered here to-night, whose very i)resence lends to the im- pressiveness of the occasion. He plea- ded for their staoility as implied in his text. If knowledge is properly poss- ess ' d it must oe indirectly based upon the immortal soul, and oe a liower for good. Whether in music, in art, in literature, in all callings, we ought ' tjo try and get nearer to nature, and thus nearer to God. If we are to be the better for these accomplishments, we must, consciously or unconsciously, pay tribute to our Heavenly Father. If we are not blind, to our own short- sightedness or our apparent ignorance we will confess we are not qualified to us-i our knowl-dge as it is intended un- til we gain the staoility referred to by Isaiah. With Sir Isaac ISewton ' s great knowledge we see him,, just like a little child, Dending at, ' the sea-shore and picking up a pebble while the great ocean rolled on that he might sift out d refined and appreciated sen- sitiveness from the sands. Thus do It is our privilege to imitate them, some meekly obtain their knowledge. Loudly procl limed knowledge never tawes. The knowledge we possess is e-isily seen in our home life. A truly refined lady never finds pleasure in ultra-fashionable society. We have seen instances of this where society ladias have come to see the hollowness of fashion and of their own choosing have turned their efforts into slum work. They get possessed of a feeling of " ennui, " as thei French would say — a sort of hungry, sick, tired, weary of worldly pleasure feeling— and strike out into the world to accomplish some good. Books are our safe companions. So if a man is known by the com- panions he keeps, his home life in books readily shows what we are. Books talk to us in our leisure hours, and Ie:id us to knowledge. Knowledge is a power too in opening up a specu- lative thought to us. We then grad- ually speculate uponi the future, and the boys and girls are led to think out a calling in life. Many of the higher ones are to-day wida oj[)en ' to girls as well as to the boys. Of coursQ some say it would be Ijetter if we had not this speculative knowledge, as it is overcrowding the professions. Per- hajjis it is doing this, out if it contin- ues thoae possessing knowledge will Degin to turn their attention to other walks in life for the betterment of all. Why should not ' a farmer or his wife be just as well educated as the law- yer | They would be more resourceful, and thereby more useful. He had no prejudice against the higher branches of learning. They are a power for usefulness, and the man knowing most about them will know most about God ' s eaching3. The call to-day is for intelligent enthusiasm— men and women all on fire. It is a divine gift. While we want enthusiasm, we, want intelligent, helpful, prayerful, reve- rential enthusiasm. There never was yet a convert who did not hunger for usefulness, for knowledge, and for wisdom, such as is six)kon of in the vox COLLEGII. 15 text. There is i difference between knowladge and wisdom. Wisdom is a gift, or faculty or disposition for the right use of knowledge. Wisdom gets deep down into the soul. Knowledge comes to us rapidly ; wisdom lingers, full of sad experiences. Still ex- pei ience. often fails to teach us .wis- dom, as our foolishness often, times paoves. Wisdom canaol bo taught. Solomon could not procure it until he prayed that he might oe measured up for it, and God granted his prayer. It has een said the, ,fear of the Lord is wisdom. It is not that we are to dread Go t any mora than w© wou d dread o !r I arents. But there is a reverence due God in the same way as we reverence our home, our lather, our mother,, our sister, our brother,. W© do not fear them ; we reverence them. Tennyson speaks of his reverencei for Almighty God, not his fear. Without reverence we wou d be without the music of life - we would b© dead. When ' knowledge gets i)o session of our heart, and wis- dom the possession ot our soul, it will OQ pleasant to our mind. Not till then will we be able to i)roperly judge the fiist things to be ' placed first and see all things aright, and thus live in har- mony with ourselves. The preacher then addressed himself more partic- ularly to tho graduating class, and said it yvas. ai great privilege to be able to do so. It had given him great pleasure to hear read at the late Con- ference Dr. Hare ' s reporti of iso many young lives being within the influence of that wonderful power for Igood in th Ontario Ladies ' College. He had been speaking of knowledge, wisdom, reverence as the reck of stability. He hoimd these [would be their guide in youth. Put Christ in the centre of these that they, may ' be made useful. There is do perfect moral (gift until it is interpreted. Take music as, an) ex- ample. Unless it imparts sentiment and flies like an arrow ' into the very depths of nature what does it accom- i:lish t It is the sentiment that makes singing what it is. When he was away from home in his youth he was broken down through hearing a singer sing " Home sweet home. " The power was caused by the sentiment. It Was the power of lifting up he wished tliese young ladies to cultivate. It (Was the noblest gift God has, given us. Our happiness is in helping ' lift up the world. When you students return to your native heath, you will be known as students of the Ontario Ladies ' College. See to it, therefore, that you h dp your church, your Young People ' s Society, you Epworth League, your Sunday school, or your W. C. T. U. If some one is ' wanted to lead in these, let it always be felt we can look with certainty to the help of the graduates of the Ontario Ladies ' College. ThLs sphere is given to you to help you to reach out and do good to others. Wis- dom will give you a ladylike bearing much superior to that to be acquired from a dancing school. Let your who- lei face become a ipower for good that the transliguration may shine out with brightness and gladness that will last forever and forever. The song service, like the sermon, was most impressive, and reflected great credit ux onl Mrs. Ayers, the organist, the choir, and the soloists, Miss Rice, Miss Powell and Mr. Stevenson. The " Visitors Arrive.

The sing- ing of Miss Wilson and Miss Rice in connection wi h the cantata deserves spe-ial mention. The work of the chorus relleoted great ' credit upon Miss Smart, the conductress. Gouno- d ' s march rendered, by violins,( pianos and organ was received with ' tumult- uous applause and had to be rei)eated. Mr Harrison too was warmly compli- mented. The Graduation Exercises. At the close of the concert the guests repaired to the basement for refresh- ments or spent some time, examining the beautiful display of the art in the drawing room and chapel or in. pro- menading about the grounds. At 7.30 o ' clock Francis Hall was agair filled for commencement proper. In the absence of the Hon. Chas. Drury, the Rev. Dr. Dewarti presided, and seated on either side of him were the Rev. Dr. 16 VOX COLLEGII. Hare and the Rer. Dr. German. The graduating class in beautiful white gowns took a seat on the piatlorm. A- round thym was a large number of la- dies and gentlemen who ,were to ' take part in the proceedings or who were memb ' irs ol thtv staff. After prayer by Rev. V., H. Emory and an organ solo by Miss Swan, the dii lomas, medals and prizes were jire- Bented, those taking part in the pre- sentations being Mrs. Dewart, Mrs. McCrimmon ; Mrs. Mustard, Denver, Col,, Mrs. Dale, Madoc ; Mrs. Winters, Mrs. Sto e ; M s.

' Mr. R echab Tandy sang the " Holy City " with great feeling, and, after a short address by Rev. Wm. H. Uincks commencement was closed with tbb singing of " God Save the King. " That the splendid success was due to the energetic etforts of the Rev. Dr. Hare, principal and governor, ably as- sisted by Mr. W. J. Greenwood, Miss Burkhoider, the lady principal, and the talented faculty, goes without say- ing. It is certainly, a fitting tribute to their worth, their work and their constant aim to leave no stone un- turned to maintain the proud distinc- tion which the College now occui)ies— that of being the foremost in America.

More ojd students Lave engaged rooms for the coming, ' year than ever bvfore in the history ol the CoMeige. This is very encouraging, and gives proof of the increasing efficiency and Ijopulaiity of the institution. Dc. and Mis Hare have arianged to spend some weeks at Cottage City, Martha ' s Vineyard, Mass. They in- tend to visit several of tho .most pro- gressive American Colleges on tlie way going and returning with the view of noting their points, of excel- lence so ae , toi Ixi in a i, osition to in- troduce any new feature in the equii - ment or the College that may be deem- ed des ' rajle. Dr. Hare ' s correspond- ence may be addr€.5 scd to him as us- ual at the College. He has made pro- vision for its oeing properly looked af- ter. I Dr. Hare ' s closing address to the school was very ortimistic. He had b ' en identified with the College for 28 years, but never did he per- ceive such a healthy knd hopeful Col- lege f entment, and such marked indi- cations of stability and strength in the work of the College. The new Col- ege furnishings in the sha ie of new pianos, carpets, etc., showed the faith of the Board of Dir- ectors in the future of the College. All who have visited the College during the year have spoken: in the strongest terms of the beautif ull lo- cation of the Co ' lege. It is certainly an ideal home for students seeking a good educaUon under pie-isant, health- ful, and refining associations. Any thinking of attending a College and desiring a coUegef calendar can obtain one by writing to the Rev. Dr. Hare. :Music For The Holidays: SONGS. (Sacred.)

I found the tone massive in its sonority and of very excellent quality, with a particularly limpid tone in its mezzo tints. I had no idea so good a piano was manufactured in Canada. ' BURHEISTER : ' Your new scale Concert Grand Piano possesses unique musical characteristics that must give it a distinctive place among the great pianos of the world. I shall insist on having a Heintzman Co. new scale Grand Piano whenever I visit Canada. " This is a piano of which Canadians are proud — appealed to the most cultured— not sur- passed in its purity of tone — charming ' y constructed in every detail.
