The junior class has had many pleasant meetings, and are now on a good foundation. They will be ready to enjoy class pleasures to the full next year. The pins are very pretty and the girls seem original and ambitious, so we predict for them a year of pleasure and progress when they return. The dinner they gave to the graduates was a great success in every way, and a credit especially to the junior Domestic Science class. The guests knew how to appreciate all the care and thought which had been spent in preparing it at this busy season. The decorations were very dainty and appropriate, being a combination of the emblems of both classes, clover and daisy, very tastefully arranged. It was after this dinner that the two classes met for the first and probably the last time as exclusive bodies. The history, prophecy and poem were read, and toasts were given. Miss Emma Wood toasted " The Juniors " in these words : " Allow me to extend t,e th? graduating class of ' ej 4 VOX COLLEGII. our most hearty congratulations. You are certainly original and full of bright ideas, which we graduates fully appreciate and enjoy in more ways than one. If you had been here a few minutes ago our faces and actions would have proved this. But as one of the marked talents of the undergrads is, I believe, character reading I am certain you can see well satisfied countenar.ces and happy hearts before you. There has certainly never been a more promising class in the College, and one thing which you already have been credited with is the organizing of a standard class pin. Now, if you continue in the way you have started probably your standing will reach that of the pre- sent graduating class. I might say surpass it. only with such a class of physical developments besice me I am afraid it would be dangerous. Let me thank you for this delightful repast you have so kindly given in our honor, and wishing for you every success in the future allow us to drink your health. " To this Miss Moysey responded: " It aflFords me great pleasure to express, on be- half of the class, our thanks for your good wishes. That we will try to honor the place you leave us you know. No doubt with the aid of our " originality, " " marked talents, " and " character reading " we will be able to do so. The honor and pleasure of enterta ining our grads of ' 03 is sufficient thanks. Again thanking you for your kind wishes, I may say that we will indeed be honored if we reach the high standard set by the graduating class of 1903. ' ' Miss Michaelis then rose and proposed this toast to the grads : " I am, indeed, pleased to have the pleasure of speaking to the seniors of ' 03, and there is one thing I can say about you all, you have been one of the brightest classes we have had for some time. In behalf of the undergraduates I now propose a toast. We wish you all success and happiness in the new lite into which you are entering. " Miss Knapp responded with the words: " I consider it a great privilege and honor to speak to the class of ' 04 on behalf of ihe grads of ' 03. We are very grateful to you for your good wishes, and also for the many little kindnesses you have shown us during the year. The large class of undergraduates have been a strong support in all onr undertakings, and we wish for them the greatest success in their final year ' s work. " We are proud of our grads, and have good reason to be. They have the God speed of all, and we predict for each a bright future in their chosen spheres. H. B. CLASS HISTORY. Judging from the concordant way in which the members of the graduating class of ' 03 have worked together that quotation, " I shall pass through this world but once ; if there is any good thing, any kind thing I can do, let me do it now. I shall not pass this way again, " seems to explain the pre-eminent feeling that has existed among us. Our meetings have all been very delightful, and unless some special classes or an examination demanded our presence at two o clock, we enjoyed reading the notice (which was always written in very large type), " Meeting of the graduates in the chapel immediate ' ly after dinner. Very important business. All })tust be present. " Our first meeting was called by our worthy president, Miss Petnerbridge, to arrange for a Graduates ' concert. Many suggestions were made but nothing definite was decided. Of course it would not do to settle such important business without considerable meditation. Perchance the musical girls or elocutionists might do more than the M.E. L. ' s, art or domestic science girls; that would be almost criminal. At first we decided to have for one number on the programme a mock faculty, but failing in our attempt to obtain a plot which would be worthy of being brought to faculty we dismissed the idea. However, not without spend- ing an evening in wild merriment, in spite of several interruptions. After three or four meetings we succeeded in getting the programme arranged to the satisfaction of all, and our very original secre- tary. Miss Wilson, procured the swagger-sticks and class colors, green and white. We choose for our emblem the four- leaved clover and for our motto " Vestigia Nulla Retrorsum. " One of the numbers on our programme which seemed to be very much appreciated by our expectant audience was a class song, written by Miss Wilson. After the concert all rushed for the chapel, where ice-cream and candy were served. Oh ! what a clamour there was until the dishes came and then — " Now, you ' ll give me this dish. I was here first and paid you long ago. ' ' " Yes, " would be the reply, but before she was vox COLLEGII. 5 aware of what was going on the dish would be gone and — what a disappointed look came to that poor girl ' s face. Meanwhile some of the ever- thoughtful Domestic Science girls were preparing hot chocolate, etc., down stairs for the poor, weary, inex- perienced grads who could not tell you what the ice-cream tasted like. This evening was such a suc- cess we decided right away to give something else, but could not name it until we had a meeting. The result was a Chocolate Evening. Committees were appointed and business was done up in a much shorter time than the previous evening demanded. From 6 to 6.30 the teachers were entertained, after which the students were admitted. The very attrac- tive poster which was made by the art graduates seemed to arouse the curiosity of all and had the desired effect. The trip to Oshawa for the photo is yet to come, and our pins and rings have not arrived, but we anticipate great pleasure in both, and also should add to this history the pleasure enjoyed at this dinner given in our honor by the juniors. Our term is almost over, and although there is much to divert our attention at present, we shall in the future often recall the pleasure enjoyed while we were together as the graduating class of ' 03 at the dear old O.L C. CLASS PROPHECY. We prophesy that Marion, after years of hard de- bating, will finally decide it is her duty to go to the foreign field as a missionary. Here we picture her trying to introduce the M. E. L. course (her favorite one) into one of the heathen colleges. Our little Eastern Artist we see in a large studio filled with easels, and seated at these easels are little men and women of color trying to draw, and bravely endeavoring to imitate their master ' s good work. We see our Daisy with her longed-for wish ful- filled. She is known the world over; she is one of the most noted organists of Europe. Also amazing the crowds with her wonderful voice and her flying fingers. We prophesy a grand and brilliant future for our two dramatic girls. Our ' star " has not yet set, although she has passed the three score years and ten. Our clever " Lean " piece of humanity will still captivate audiences with redoubled magnetism. A vision of a platform looms up before our eyes. There in the midst of the teaming thousands stands our sweet-tempered Nellie holding forth on woman ' s rights, and completely over-powering even the men with her eloquence. There comes before our gaze an old woman whose name is not Taylor now. Pleasant and happy- looking, no peculiarly noticeable feature until she raises her hand, an d then why do people stare ? Her fingers taper down to a pin point, all caused by practicing so much in her youth. The music still continues to pour from these fingers, although she has passed the century mark. What is to be for Bea will be. We see her happily surrounded by so many little humming Bees— all busy making fudge and little mud pies. Following in her steps we see them at the practical part of domestic science. No dypepsia or indiges- tion troubles any of this household. There comes before our vision a vivid picture of an old woman " legging it " as fast as she could go, carrying under each arm sketches from art gallery to art gallery, clutching them with her small sun- burnt hands. Never will Sammie ' s sketches float aimlessly over the ocean. At the head of one of the world ' s renowned co- educational colleges will be Madame Wilson, while on her brilliant career as a concert singer, at- tention will be attracted to her as filling every requirement— mentally, morally and physically — necessary for the position of such a dignitary. With the sweet winsomness displayed when hostess at a Domestic Science dinner, we shall find Grace attending to her husband ' s clerical friends. We know her fate is a minister, but whether Con- gregational or Presbyterian we cannot yet tell. If we could take a peep into her kitchen we would always see a pot of chicken broth and jelly stewing for their sick parishioners. We prophesy for our " Dutch " lassie a brilliant and successful career. Vast amphithetres will be thronged to hear the exquisite music given by Frau- lein Gumpricht and the Polish gentleman commonly known as Paderewski. We find Blanche, the devotee of literature and science, presiding over a household. This will be a happy and healthy family, as all will be taken care of in a scientific manner. We picture her as a very shy, retiring little wife, but shining in the domestic science anrl nursing department of her little home. Standing before a lo-foot canvas we see our white- haired painter, splashing away preparing for her 6 VOX COLLEGM. first exhibition in the Royal Academy. There is never a doubt but that this grand picture will be hung, and will be in the same row with those of Raffael, Rosa Bonheur, Reubens and F. Mc- Gillivary Knowles. Presiding over the White House we see our graceful Swan. She has had a brilliarit career, and has thrilled the hearts of many by her solo playing. But all this has now been given up, and we see her the star of all social events. We predict for our willing artist with the auburn locks a career which will excel all fame and fortune those of her illustrious brothers, and that as her 1 years and fame increase so will her weight, unti the misery caused by the thoughtless saying: " How thin you are " will be forgotten in the equally thoughtless, oft repeated " How fat you are. ' ' The class has volunteered this prediction of the future of their prophetess : — In our mind ' s eye we see our stately graduate from the far Pacific pre- siding over an ancient baronial castle in the midst of broad English acres. Her handsome husband is all that can be desired, and her four-year-old Francis a perfect dream. We extend ourselves all a cordial invitation to pay her an extended visit. CLASS POEM. All hail ye learned sages Of Whitby ' s famous school, And you, ye ancient maidens. Well trained in book and rule. Flap your huge wings in wonder At your great poetess. While she declaims in thunder, The merits you possess. I know some girls would rather For subject take a boy. But I will speak of fairies For they are all my joy; The dear, sweet nymphs that wander And roam the College grounds. And sometimes seek the grandeur Away beyond their bounds. Our president, the fairy queen Her magic wand did wield Until beneath her smiling mien We each did bow and yield, And though her reign is over. Though her subjects scattered be, In the deepest depths of each young heart, Lies a cherished pearl marked " Annie. " My first sweet elf is Lilian, Sweetest and best is she ; Her voice is like the chime of bells, She ' s busy as a bee. Her dulcet notes can soothe one And free from every care, Her measures wild, heroic, Would please a dancing bear. My second is a Daisy, Just like that little flower. An even-tempered lady. Whom some one will devour Then she can sing divinely. And shake her raven locks. And lullaby the baby, While she the cradle rocks. Now, there is Wilhelmina, She is my noble third ; And frequently, I fancy That she is quite a bird. My senses may deceive me, But one thing I do know. That she goes oft to Oshawa, Perhaps? to see her beau. My fourth— a little Taylor, Not tailor by the trade But just a lively Mabel Whom somebody will wed. She lives in dear old Whitby And attends the O.L.C. In music she will graduate. With our class of naughty three. Now, from the great Pacific, Where Britain ' s ensign fl ies, My fifth comes forth both tall and strong And for the boys she sighs. On M. E. L. her mind is bent, She has never known defeat. And the foremost chair in " oysters " Has always been her seat. And there is Elfin Webster, Dear Blanche keeps me in doubt; To-day I think I know her, To-morrow I am out. vox COLLEGII. 7 A fair, sweet country elfin, Who to her work is wed ; Her daily thoughts do heavenward tend, To judge by the poise of her head. Another happy elfin Is Marian, the fair, She graduates in M.E.L. And all such kindred w ' are. She really is so clever, The genius in her head. Perforce flows through each filament And turns them almost red. I read softly — do not raise a din A Star hos now reclined Behind a cloud of coverlets A refreshing nap to find. Ye winds, blow not the clouds away For fear the Star might soar Away beyond our vision ' s reach. And never twinkle more. We all admire Grace Silcox With her domestic art. You ' d know her by her smiling face And her large and kindly heart. If e ' er we were in trouble. Dear Grace was ever nigh To smooth the rough place over, To dry the tear-dimmed eye. Come, Beatrice, come, my muse inspire With various joys attend. Thou source of sweet and kindly acts. Thou dear obliging friend. But sometimes you excited get. And lose your little head. I trust this weakness you ' ll outgrow When you are better fed. Behold an elfin tall and red Retiring in her mood, She steals away and meditates Just as a fairy should. Our Nellie is a charming girl And perhaps I shouldn ' t tell. That she ' s not contented with a chap But add s a " man " as well. Well, Emma, we ' ll be easy dear, We know that thou art fair, And that thou art a precious Wood A timber sweet and rare. But ne ' ertheless some future time You may be bought for pelf. And some good-natured lumberman May take you to himself. Who can with Emily compete In beating ' gainst the wind ; She ' s built for cutting it in two. She ' d leave us all behind. This is the fairy that delights In looking down on me. But some day I ' ll look down on her When I can climb a tree. Ho ! ye that want, come to the spring Of Sammie ' s verbal flow. Open your ears and gladly Hear logic sweet and low. To high altitudes she leads, To nobleness allures, The ethics from her cherry lips True happiness ensures. Ah ! Anna, who from Southern Isles, To our College halls did come ; We had in thee a happy elf, A treasure for our home. Now back to Southern warmth and flowers With thy fairy wings out spread. Thou flittest to thy native homes With smiling skies o ' er head. Our much-accomplished Agnes, Divinely tall and fair. Of charms and arts of every kind Thou hast more than thy share. To know thee is to love thee, And although it was not meant We feel thou hast unkind been For thou all our hearts hast " Dent. " And now, dear fairies, one and all. Ye tall, ye short, ye thin. Ye stout, ye dark, ye red, ye fair, My pleasing task is done. Farewell, ye comrades of my heart. May each one wear a crown. An d ne ' er forget the glad school-days We spent in Whitby town. 8 VOX COLLEGII. NEWS FROM ABROAD. We have recently received this, entertaining and well-written letter from one of our former students. We are sorry that lack of space made it necessary to omit some minor parts, but what we give is in- tensely interesting : My Dear " Vox, " — If, in the reading of this sketch, you derive as much pleasure in following our course from ocean to ocean as I have in review- ing the delights and pleasant associations connected with it, my wish will be gratified, for it will be my one aim to make you see, though but through the medium of an inadequate pen, the wonders of this world of ours. On the day of departure, when we drove down to the dock, passengers were already going on board. It was exciting to watch the stir and bustle as the great ship was made ready for her long sea trip. Such a babel of tongues one would imagine Bedlam had been let loose ; such a calling of friends to one another from the wharf to the hurricane and pro- menade decks. The different bits of conversation were amusing yet pathetic. But time sped all too quickly, and now the captain, tall and commanding, at the head of the gangway calls out : " All visitors ashore now. " Reluctant good-byes are said again, and as the ropes were cast off and the good ship slowly drew away from the wharf there rose over all this confusion the clear sweet tones of the bugles playing " Old Lang Syne, ' ' as we swung out into the open sea, full steam ahead. Some people still stood at the railing, straining their eyes for one more glimpse of friends on the fast receding shores. Days at sea follow one another monotonously alike. There was first the novelty of throwing quoits, and playing endless games of shuffleboard, but one very soon settles down to the usual quiet routine of life on board an ocean liner. The first three or four days out were quite squally, but otherwise we were very fortunate in having beautifully calm and delightful weather. It is surprising how quickly one drifts into conver- sation with a neighbor. At first it is on very minor subjects, but soon you are talking away as if you had met one another every day of your life. And so the days slipped by. After we had been out about a week, our flagging energies and interests were once more aroused by the news that next day we would reach the Azore Islands. Friday, January 23rd, we dropped anchor, and how our sea-tired eyes grew brighter at the sight of the low grassy shores, and the rows of pink, green and white houses shining in the rays of a warm sun. Cameras were now busily employed. Presently natives put out from the shore in their boats, laden with fruit and curios, and they very quickly disposed of their wares and returned for other loads, for it is the only time they have to make any money. We remained here only three hours. It had been an exciting day, and as every one was tired we retired very regularly. So we settled down once more to quietness and gossip. Our next stopping place was at Gibraltar. We arrived there at three m the afternoon and anchored in the bay. How glad we were to be on terra firma once more. Scarcely had we landed when we were surrounded by the natives, who were mostly Arabs, tall, swarthy-skinned men, with brilliant black eyes, clad in long flowing robes with gayly colored tur- bans on their heads, selling all sorts of curios. Of course, there were any number of Spaniards. We had the funniest and most amusing one for our guide, and he kept us in laughter all the time by his peculiar broken English. As we went in we entered through a gate at which an official stood who presented us with tickets, which our guide explained to us were to be used in case of our not being out of the gate before sundown, when the gun was fired. After this to leave the city one required a ticket. We took a quaint little yellow carriage with cur- tains and drove through the principal streets to where the Moorish bazaar was held. Here we were met by the most suave merchants who, in spite of our reluctance, sold us the quaintest curios which we didn ' t want, but which they solemnly assured they were positively giving away. We drove through the public gardens, cool and inviting, and from, there we had a splendid view of the harbor. Laden with all sorts of things dear to the heart of a tourist, especially a woman, we re- turned to our boat, and after the last load of passen- gers had been brought we started. By this time it was quite dusk, and as we swung slowly round the point across the quiet v aters there boomed the deep tones of the sunset-gun. One by one the lights began to twinkle, and soon the whole city with its varied crowd of strange and familiar sights and peoples lay outlined before us. Two days later, at midnight, we anchored in vox COLLEGII. 9 Algiers, and early the next morning, just in time to see a most beautiful sunrise, we were rowed ashore in small boats by the picturesque natives. The city was built on the side oi the hill, and the streets rose one above the other like tiers in a theatre. The first place we went through was a terribly squalid quarter known as " Arab town, ' ' where the streets were dreadfully narrow and not very clean, and paved with cobble-stones. Along these alleys were the shops of the natives, dark squares cut in the rock. In the doorways sat the merchant, cross- legged, with his long black pipe or herkah between his lips. At the side was placed, on a low tabouret, a cup of jet black coffee, from which he solemnly took a sip now and then. But so much filth and squalor disgusted us, and descending again into the city, we went into one of the mosques, with its shining minarets and marble pillars. Before entering we must either remove our shoes or put sandals over our own, as it was be- lieved we would profane the holy building. At- tempting to walk A ' ith the sandals on gave one the sensation of trying to learn how to skate ; so as best we could we shuffled along in the wake of our guide. In front of the pillars were natives busily engaged in saying their devotions, while not stopping their sing-song monotone their eyes followed us about. One old man read his Koran, starting at the back ; of course none understood what was said. We went from here to the governor ' s palace, which may be visited while he is absent, and as this took us an hour or more we had just time to hurry to our boat and scramble uj before the gangway was pulled in, and once more were off again. Genoa, our last stopping place, was reached in the next two days, but there we visited only the " Campo Santo, " or city of the dead, famous for its wonderful statuary. From the time when we left Genoa till landing at Naples, our destination, we spent the time in taking last walks together with our newly-made friends. At last the time had come ; we were at anchor at Naples. Natives in picturesque costume surrounded and welcomed us with sweet songs to the notes of guitar and tambaurine. We threw them pennies and watched the dexterity with which they caught them in the extended umbrellas. Good-byes were said and promises made of future meetings, and at last we were off the boat. It seemed strange not to hear the familiar swish of the water and the regular beat of the engines, and we left many a regret behind us, for life had been pleasant these two weeks at sea, and friends had been made. But it came to my mind as our ship slowly sailed from our sight, how true it was, that after all we ate but " ships that pass in the night. " As our time here was rather limited we did as much sight-seeing as possible, starting off the next day early for the ruins of Pompeii. At last we were in " the Silent City of the Dead. " We saw the Roman forum and amphitheatre and also the homes of famous Romans. The rtreets were very narrow with but room for one chariot to pass. In the stones were still the ruts worn by the carts. One could very well spend hours here going over each place carefully, but as we had a long drive to go we very reluctantly left. Our hotel was very pleasantly situated on a hill, and from our windows we obtained a fine view of Mount Vesuvius and the Islands round about. But to tell you all would but prove wearisome to you, so let us hurry on to Rome. Truly, it earns the name of " Eternal City. " Rome, that in its many-sided complexity endears itself to one and all, has a fascin- ation that makes one long for its many beauties. There is a tradition still believed, that he who drinks at night of the waters of the fountain of Trare and casts a coin to its depths will return a ain. On the day of our arrival we visited the wonder- ful Colosseum in the evening, and as it was moon- light the enjoyment was deepened. It was a sight I shall never forget, as we stood in that vast and darkened amphitheatre that had stood well the storm and stress of years, even centuries. The feelings of strange emotions struggled within us as we saw, in fancy, the terror-stricken human beings as they cowered before the first growl of the infuriated lions waiting impatiently to fasten their cruel teeth into the quivering flesh of their victims. Thus it was of old ; they paid the penalty of their steadfast adherence to a hated faith. So true the words : — " While stands the Colosseum Rome shall stand, when falls the Colosseum Rome shall fall, and when Rome falls with it shall fall the world. " Let us go on now to Switzerland to the Lake of Lucerne. Who is there whose heart does not beat faster as he reads this name, which recalls to us all that we have heard of the sublime scenery of this Lake Lucerne, the magnificent description of Schil- ler and the history of William Tell, of whose heroic 10 YOX COLLEGII. deeds the shores were the scene. A world of pic- turesque landscape rises before our eyes, aware as we are that this famous lake is a treasure-house of natural beauties. Let us entrust ourselves to its waters till we ha ' -e explored all the recesses of its curiously winding shores and have enjoyed all the beautiful effects of light and shade which unite with the striking char- acter of its scenery to render it a paragon of beauty. In front of us strttches the bay with pretty summer cottages dotting its shores. Our eyes turn upwards to where the mountains raise their proud crests. The Rigi has one advantage over all other moun- tains, for it has its situation among three lakes. It is like an island peak, and the sheets of water sur- rounding it impart a unique and incomparable charm to the landscape. The Rigi-Kulme is the culminating point, and at sunset we made a visit there, where I imagine some three hundred tourists had gathered. I feel that I cannot do justice to the overpowering grandeur of the prospect. Words cannot depict the beauty of a landscape two hund- red miles in diameter, including the fourteen lakes, the undulating country north of the Alps, the Jura, the wonderful Black forest; while to the south, in dazzling whiteness, rose a host of towering peaks forming a snowy garland as sublime and unsullied as on the day of creation. Below were sapphire blue lakes, villages and grassy meadow lands, and range on range of mountains surround us. It was impossible to gaze on this glorious scene without our souls and hearts expanding with the beauty of this earth of ours. Lucerne is a splendid place for walks, so one bright morning we left our hotel and took a little zig zag path that led past an ancient tower know as the " Unoth, " up to the heights above, up which there is also a carriage drive. " The Cutset " is little more than a hill, yet it commands a sur- prisingly fine view of the quaint little town on the Reuss river. Before our walk was ended evening came on, the soft evening of Switzerland. The leaves of the chestnut trees rustled in the breezes that swept gently over the rippling waters of the lake, and the peaks of the snow-capped mountains flashed and reddened as though they are no longer cold but glowing with a cellestial fire. The valleys, even, were ablaze, while over all, the shadow of twilight had fallen on the valleys. Softly swelling and dying the sweet clear tones of the vesper bell were heard. Through the foilage of the trees the electric lights flashed, and on the lakes, boats, with their colored lights, glided hither and thither, while the songs of the happy occupants were heard across the silent, dusky wafers — the " Naples of Switzerland, " a title it well deserves ! If I could compress into a single sentence all the exclamations and thoughts uttered in the many lan- guages it certainly would be this : " How lovely is the earth and how glorious life. " Gazing on Lucerne thoughts of a more sombre character are impossible. With wishes that some day in the near future you, too, may see and enjoy all its beauties with your own eyes. I am sincerely yours, MuRiLL Parker. ANNUAL TENNIS TOURNAMENT. Agreement re Whitby-Victoria Tennis Matches. Subject to Ratification by A. U. Executive. Be it understood : 1. That the players for Victoria be limited to those taking a full undergraduate course, and that those for Whitby be limited to resident students. 2. That when one college has a majority of two in the total number of wins the other shall be per- mitted to call in any graduate or former student of the college wha was eligible to play while in atten- dance. 3. That in case of a tie the tournament shall be decided by an extra match which may be either a double or a single. 4. That competition shall corjtinue for twenty meets, the college having the majority of victories at that time to be permanent holder of the shield. 5. That the matches be semi-annual, the meet to be at Whitby in the spring and at Victoria in the fall, the date of the matches to be decided by mutual consent. There was a good deal of scrambling to catch the train on the morning of Victoria Day. Eighteen in all assembled at the Union depot. The morning was ideal ; so was everything else except the car. Many interesting incidents regarding the trip down might be related, but we will simply remark that the train threw us off at O.L.C. gate, and we were very cordially welcomed by Miss Burkholder and Dr. Hare. It would be hard to imagine a more enjoyable day. tox COLLEGII. 11 You will see that we were beaten in the tennis. The defeat, however, did not seem to afifect the composure of the guests, and the day was one of education as well as entertainment, for we had an excellent opportunity of seeing how they live in one of the first educational institutions in the country. The College authorities are to be congratulated upon their equipment, location and discipline, which can- not fail to assure, as in the past, the patronage of a large constituency. No ordinary quill could describe the scene at leaving, so we will simply submit a few facts — one hundred and thirty girls on the crescent at the college door — no handshaking, for what mortal would face such a problem — three conveyances, 35 people. The trip home was on a par with anything Mark Twain could describe for abbreviated accommoda- tions. Some monopolized the stove in the " smoker, ' ' others a huge pile of luggage, while the greater number stood outside on the platforms and amused themselves by dodging cinder showers and wonder- ing what it would feel like to be sound asleep. Next year we ' ll not lose the tennis. The score was as follows : — Miss Swan, O.L.C, vs. Miss Dingwall, Vic, won 6-3, 6-1, by O.L.C; Miss Richardson, O.L.C, vs. Miss Jeffrey, Vic, won 6-4, 6-1, by O.L.C; Miss Freeman, O.L.C, vs; Miss Wilson, Vic, won 6-1, 7-5, by O.L.C; Miss Chown, O.L.C, vs. Miss Grange, Vic, won 6 I, 6-3, by O.L.C; Misses Swan and Richardson vs. Misses Dingwall and JofTery, wbn 6-1, 6-1, by O L.C; Misses Freeman and Chowri vs. Misses Wilson and Grange, won 6-1, 6-3, by O.L.C. As there are but six events in each tournament, it somehow looks like a victory for O.L.C, unless it is not true that figures never lie. That not a single set came our way demonstrates fully the superior playing of the Whitby ladies. The latter are to be complimented, especially for their accurate placing. This undoubtedly was the reason of their decisive victory. — Toronto Acta Vietoriana. Oh, there are moments in man ' s mortal years When for an instant that which long has lain Beyond our reach is on a sudden found In things of smallest compass, and we hold The unbounded shut in one small minute ' s space. And worlds within the hollow of our hand — A world of music in one word of love, A world of love in Que quick wordless look, A world of thought in one translucent phrase, A world of memory in one mournful chord, A world of sorrow in one little song. Such moments are men ' s holiest — the full orbed And finite form of Love ' s infinity. — New York Tribune, COLLEGE SOCIAL LIFE.

The closing exercises of the Ontnrio L. ' dies ' CoHftge of V. ' hilby are ilways an avjp.picious occasion, but oevcr were they more so than in the leafy June of 1903. Year aftier year it has. been closed with increasing eclat, until now it takes, its plar« among the great fix- ed educational ins.til utions oC the con- tinent. Friends from far and near assembled to do honor to its closing feativitija, and thus show their hearty co-oj oraTion and sympathy with this jvopular home of higher education for young ladies. And the giris. too, were quite atxicus to greet them, for n-t- tur.iiiy they eagerly looked forward to t ' ' e day when they could leava the college for a well-earned r.-st during the hot summer vacation. There was nlob a gloomy face to be seen; all was brightcess, laughter and .song as they, In laevys and in white and other pretty dresses, fluttered here and there to greet and converse with old friends as each one ariived. The splen- did grounds, Ithe bro:id sweep of lawn, the circling paths, the spreading ma- plea, the tennis courts, all made a per- fect picture — ir, fact all the college surroundings seemed to be in sympa- thetic accord with the serene happi- ness which unstintingly abounded wherever the eye turnclh during the two weeks of the closing exercises, CLOSING RECITALS. The first of the ' losing recitals was thit givfci by ihe pupils of Misses Wright. iVlcTaggarl, and Peilcy on Tu- esday evening, Juno 9th, It was well attended, much enjoyed, and re- flected credit alike to both teachers, and pupils. Those who appeared on the piogramme were — Misses Cook, Gallagher, Boyce, McLean, O ' Hara, Dey, Harrison ,GiiIfiLh, Chown, D. Campiizzi, Turk and E. Freeman. The second of the series of closing concerts, was given by the .senior elo- cution class on i ' riday evening, June 12th. Miss Richardson, a graduate in Oratory, jecited very wc ' l. Sbe is natural and symiiathetic in her deliv- ery, quite vers;itile and appreciative, and brings out the true hum or of her selections. Her w.ork shows concen- tration and deep e.tudy. Miss Knapp, anotlier graduate in oratory, also re- cited well.; She has a sliong voice, and seems to like and enjoy her char- acters as she recites. She and Miss Richardson both lespondcd to hearty encores. Misses Moysey, Beatty and Ost ' ' ander. who will e;ich receive cer- tificates, in oratory this year, all re- cited very well, and were encored, but there was not time to ic.=j[.ond. Miss Perley and Miss Bryoe sang as well as u.sual and received the deserved api- preciatio.i. The last number was the dagger scene from Macbjtb by the graduates. This was goo i. There was the same force as well as natu- ralness about this which characterizes all the wor k of these talented young ladies. Miss JBadgley recited with the usual success and hearty encore. On the following Friday evening, June the 19th, the grand concert hall of the college was a raia filled to en- joy the general concert, when the lovers of music, song, dramatic effect, and oiocuFiOQ showed the highest [)- prei ' ialion oC the t-ilc.nted performer-s who hjve mastered these arts - h rough their college training.

Perha[y5 one of the most pleasing features in connection with this year ' s closinig festivities was the concert giv- en by former students on Saturday evening, June the 20th. It was in- deed a treat.. The fine fea.,s,t of mu- sic, the sweet singing of the soloists, the elocutionary efforts, and the me- lodi£ as strains of the violinist all drew forth hearty expressions of ap- proval and delight which mus.t in no small measure have gratified the per- formers... At the conclusion Dr. Hare expressed his pleasure at the success of this, re-union, said the credit of its inception was due toTMiss Eurkholder ' s energy, and how one (Mrs.. Hire) un- avoidably absent through illness, ho- ped to " be with a similar gathering next year if Miss Eurkholder ' s desire for an annual gathering of former pu- pils can be accomplished..

' The cantata of " King Rene ' s Daugh- ter " was a part of Monday afternoon ' s delightful programme. It was sung by fifty-five sweet voices, and some excellent soloists, special mention of which might be given to Misses Lil- lian Wilson, Seocomb-3, and Snider, and its rendlLion was greatly appre- ciated. Miss Peiley, a resident vo- cal teacher of the college, sang very effectively in Dudley Buck ' s " In Thy 14 VOX COLLEGIL Dreams. " The cantata consisted of thirteen choruses, ducts and solos, which (lispLiyed to grood advantage the well-trained musical talent of the collcg-e. The general effect wits high- ly pleading, and gave eviilence of care- ful and xersistcnt training. The cos- tumes and grou[)inj of the young ladies, luo, pxesenLed a vei ' y piyasing appearance. AIL Nettie McTaggart ably ofiiciatea al the i iano, and ad- ded in CO small degree to the success of the perforipa iice., Miss Helen Badgley, gold UieUalist in the clocu- tiona-y deiiartmcnt. and a jouug lady pt sessing a fine stage presence, gave the encbanling residing of " Tho L.os.t ■ Vord, " from " I ' he Clue Flower, " in a maimer ILal was a seriaoo in ilself, as( it rang out with goodness from the beginning to the end., It is to be regretted that sJhe will not again return to the O. L». C, because many an entertainment hereabouts will be deprived of licr talent. Miss Mary H. Smart Is to be complimented upon the efficient manner in whicti all the numl ers of this cantat i were execut- ed, and the large bouquc?ts of car- nations presented to the young musi- ciaoa vcrc liighly appreciated by pu- pils BEd audience alike. »ot only was this iiiagni fic ;nt cantata pre- sented upon this occasion, but it was also given in the Whitby music hall a few weetA ago, when the pioceeds ot §5 ' ) trc donated to the fund for pur- chasing an organ for the new county house of refuge. Subsequently to that entertainment, it was again giv. en with marked success as a compli- mentary entertainment before the members of [the Bay of Quinte Ck)nter- ence at Osbav.a.

On Sunday evening there w.ilsi a large turnout of the students to the Me- thodist Tabernacle, where the bac- caLiureate sermon was preached by the Rev. Dr. J. V. Smith, of the Carlton street Methodist church, To- ronto. He took his text from a part of ithe fifth vers of tho eiglith chapter of Hebrews, — " See, saith he, th it thou m ke all thinga ac- cording to the pattern siiewed to thee in the Mount. " In an evi- dently deeply thought out .sermon, Dr. Smith saiil the constiLutioa of our na- ture t(iuiiJ«lled us to look forward. We seldom locKed into the past. We were not j.u ' into this world to re- main ignorant, but to allow our na- ture, through faith, to lead ua. for- ward in! a desire to obtain knowledge. This, is a B vinig and a purifying ap- jjetite if it is but encouraged in the right diiection. If we take away the spiritual side of our nature, we will soon revel in iguoiauce. We should aim at knowledge, and this will lead to higher ideals. If we do this, our lives will separate like diamonds. What Ls your condition to-night S Are you aiming at high idcaLs, or is your life a failure because you have mLssed the mark? God never intend- ed the immortal soul to sink down- wards. There is thunder in the soul to arouse us to a. higher ideal in lifej Yet it is pathetic that so few of us attain it. A study of Christ makes us feel that we want to lead a more Christian life. This moulds a Christ- ian character which leads u.s to learn- ing and culture, and causes us to scorn vox COLLEGII. 15 our low |3es.ii-es.l Let us seek ani ideal then by studying Christ, and thus se- cure the vLsdom which will flow to our advantage in life. The reverend gentleman then more particularly ad- dressed the igraduatlng classs, and ex- pressed the hope that the ideals which they have bucn nurtured in at what he might call the hi5.torical Ontario Ladies ' College might be lived up to uiwn their going out into the woirld, so that their academic life would not end, but be the beginning to greater achievements., which would redound to the honor and glory of Go;d and their alma mater, as we ' I as give them greater strength and more happiness in their life work He believed! .the college was doing a grand work. It was deserving of the iJTayer.s and en- couragemaut of all. The able choir of the church did much to make the service more impressive, while Mi.ss Ella Davidson, of Oshawa, sang most sweetly, a solo entitled " Crossing the Bar. " Dr. Hare conducted the ser- vice with the exception of the sermon, and, in his. prayer, earnestly petition- ed that the .graduates, might go out into the world as reflectors of the Christian influences which have sur- rounded them during their stay at the college.

Report of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Ladies ' College and Ontario Conservatory of Music and Art to the Methi ' dist Conference : — We take pleasure in presenting to this Confer- ence our twenty-ninth annual report. It has always been our privilege to report progress, and still the tidal wave of advancement gives no indication of receding or standing still ; in fact, the present col- legiate year now coming to a close, taking it all in all, may be regarded as the most successful in the vox COLLEGII. 17 history of the College. The attendance of resident students has been 138; day students, 35 ; total, 173. The latter have been confined entirely to the extra collegiate subjects, and have not come into close touch with the family life of the College. We make this statement simply to emphasize the fact that our College is pre-eminently a home college, and that on this basis its present and future success rests. We have no thought that our present success rests. We have no thought that our present high standing is due to any chance occur- rence, but to the steady and well-directed effort along advanced educational lines which has com- manded the confidence and good-will of the country. Our palatial buildings, beautiful location, and pleasant, healthful home life away from the distrac- tions of the city have been points in our favor that have helped to make our College what it is to-day, but all these combined would not make an up-to- date and progressive institution without an able staff of specialists capable of doing the very best work, and doing it according to the most modern and ap- proved methods. The standing and character of the teachers employed, their intellectual breadth and vigor, their refined habits of thought and speech, their moral and spiritual influence, together with the divine blessing, are the very foundation stones on which a college worthy of the name must rest. The teacher ' s ideal, whatever it may be as it comes out in his spirit, character, and grasp of his subject, must ever be the determining factor for success or failure. We do not profess to have per- fect teachers, and yet the personality of our teach- ing staff as well as their scholastic qualifications have been subjects of the gravest consideration in all our engagements, and we have reason to believe that our efforts have been crowned with marked success. For some years we have been very successful in preparing students for university and departmental examinations, passing for several years in succession 100 per cent of the candidates. Whilst we naturally feel proud of this record, and are determined to continue this thorough work, we do not wish it to be understood that this is our only mission. The chief mission of our College is to fit young women to shine in the home life, or to fill with dignity any position to Wnich in the Providence of God they may be called. In other words, so to cultivate their tastes, so refine their manners, so to build up their characters as to make them as God may help us, truly cultured women of the Christian type. The average young woman has no desire for a full university course, and yet she should not dawdle away her time in a so-called society school, and lower her ambition to the level of a mere butterfly of fashion. There is a more serious work for her to do. There is a higher ideal to be attained, and such a college as ours, standing for solidity and worth, combined with beauty and grace, and all under the overmastering feeling of responsibility to God, is the proper home and the proper atmosphere in which to develop the coming woman, the woman of resource and culture. Our Conservatory of Music has demonstrated its efficiency by three times winning the first place in the final examinations of the Toronto Conservatory of Music. Our equipment of pipe organ and grand pianos is unequalled in any similar institution in this country. Our Fine Art, Elocution, Commercial and Domestic Science Departments are similarly efficient. It may be added that the Domestic Science Department has been recently equipped with separate desks and electrical stoves of the very latest type, thereby making ample provision for thorough normal work leading to a provincial te icher ' s certificate. Our library has been somewhat increased during the year, and though not as large as it should be, or as we expect it will be in the near future, it has been selected with care and affords our students an opportunity of becoming acquainted with some of the best literature of the day. We would remind our friends that donations to our library will be thankfully received. The society and club life of our College has been very encouraging. The Young Women ' s Christian Association, the Literary Society, the Musical and Art Clubs have flourished during the year, and have contributed largely to a happy and high-toned college life, and, we believe, have planted germs which will in the future develop into capabilies that will be felt in the societies of the church and the country. These organizations are created and maintained by a definite purpose of mutual improve- ment. We have found them a great stimulus to study and to general reading as well as productive of the best social traits of character. When students meet together under the exacting conditions of giving to each other the best they have to give in essay writing, in extemporaneous speech, in siw.gi.ngj 18 YOX COLLEGIL playing or reciting, the club or society becomes a mighty uplifting agency. When students do very little for themselves, and depend too much on out- side attractions, they lose the e ' ement of personal development become superficial weaklings. The promotion of physical health and graceful bodily carriage we consider an important feature of our work. Courses of talks or lectures, daily ex- ercises under competent instructors, and all kinds of athletic games tend to produce these desiied results. Too much cannot be said respecting this aspect of our college life. A healthy and well-developed physical organism, properly poised and supported, means fresh and buoyant spirits and great capability of effort, and these, when aroused and wisely directed, mean true and lasting success. In conclu- sion, we wish to thank the members of this Confer- ence for their hearty support in the past, and we promise to do all in our power to merit the continu- ance of the same for the future. Signed on behalf of the board, Geo. a. Cox, Hon. President. Chas. Drury, President. John Rice, Secretary. NOTES. The " At Home " given by the girls of No. 9 Main was decidedly the largest, most successful and en- joyable social entertainment ever given by students in the history of the College. The hostesses, the Misses Breithaupt, Burwell and Gertrude Campbell, are to be congratulated upon the tasteful and ap- propriate decorations and arrangement of furniture. The wide corridor between 9 and 8 Main was trans- formed by screens, plants and inviting seats into a large and charming refreshment room, where the daintiest of refreshments were served by Miss Desiree Campazzi and Miss Evelyn Simonds and the Misses Swan presided. Misses Perley, Wilson and Pether- bridge sang and Miss Turk furnished suitable music. There were over ninety guests (some from outside the College) and they presented a very attractive picture in their light reception gowns. Everything, even to the smallest detail, was without a flaw. We are glad to record such a social success. We will insert a newspaper clipping as an account of the Choral class concert : " The concert given in the Music hall last evening by the pupils of the O.L.C. was most delightful and successful in every way. There were about 300 persons in the audience, and they evi- denced their appreciation of the young ladies ' efforts by hearty applause. Some 80 young ladies took part in the programme. Most of these occupied seats on the stage, and as they were all dressed in white, presented a beautiful sight. The piano and vocal solos of the first part of the programme were excellently rendered, and Miss Badgley added to her fame as an elocutionist of remarkable ability. The audience listened to her with the most rapt atten- tion, and greeted her effort with a hearty encore, to which the young lady graciously responded. The second part of the programme consisted of the can- tata, " King Rene ' s Daughter. " This difficult musical composition required great care, labor and skill in the preparation, and the perfect and brilliant execution gave proof of the rare talents of the pupils of the O.L.C. and the supurb training they receive there. The audience were delighted with the can- tata, as well they might be. " It was received even more heartily in Oshawa when repeated there on June 6th. Miss Smart is to be congratulated upon her talent and her power of leadership and management. J£icbanac0. COULD I GO BACK. Dear Father, could I go back to-night, And tread again the long, long miles That lie between the present And the hour when consciousness first came to me, Right glad I ' d go. Though rough the way. And burdens grievous came to me and those I loved ; Could Time ' s great scroll but backward turn I ' d start anew. No length of miles Nor burdens sore could keep me from the path If I might travel once again with those Who, weary of the long, hard road. Have lain them down to dreamless sleep To wait thy call. Then, Father, Viewing all from vantage ground I ' ve gained, I see where oft I erred, scarce knowing. For the way was dark. But light has come, And now, could I go back And tread the self-same way again Methinks I ' d grieve Thee less, for, Right well I ' ve learned, the path of Duty Is e ' er the path of Right. — G.

Amid life ' s ceaseless ebb and flow The new friends come, the old friends go. " Ah ! yes. It is only too true : old friends must part. We have our lives before us. We are young, and filled with hope for the future. We say : " We will meet again. " But many a heart which covers the sorrow of parting with just such words, knows only too well that there are those who now eo out of the life forever, those we love but cannot stay or ask to turn aside from their allotted sphere, and the heart is very heavy in secret. Let us yield to the sweet sadness which we feel at this happy time. ' Tis there, and yielding may relieve it. And some will meet again, as the years pass- some who have here been linked with strongest ties of love and friendship. Ah, the gladness of that meeting — the reminis- cences—all will come vividly back as heart speaks to heart of the good old days. It is said, and many ffnd it true, that there is a charm, a something almost indefinable, lost from every college friendship which continues after the school life ends. " It may be that the strain and stress Of our mad times tempt joylessness ; It may be, too, the ashes of Dead hopes and dreams have smothered love. But plain it is, we hold no more That glad good fellowship of yore. " If it prove so it will be the lost charm of the kind protection of our Alma Mater. But now the tims has come. We must face the parting. God speed is wished again and again, but the last fond hand- clasp when words have failed is the link between the present and the future. Above all present success and bright dreams for the future we treasure the sob in the last " good bye. " flDusic. Miss Smart should feel very much gratified with the success of both of the choral class concerts. Miss McTaggert deserves a good share of the credit and congratulations, for much depended upon her skill as accompanist. She and Miss Gumpricht played the overture, which was a duet. Those taking special parts besides the chorus were Misses Perley, Wilson, Petherbridge, Seccombe, Silcox, Michaelis, Turk, ' 1 elfer, Snyder, Bryce and Mrs. Hare, of Oshawa. Misses Taylor, Wilson Seccombe and Gumpricht gave instrumental solos the same evenings, and showed great progress and credit to their teacher, Prof. Harrison. Everything went off wonderfully well, and we hope it will always be as successful in the future as it has been in the past. The recitals given in Toronto by the organ and piano graduates were all very successful, and we are glad to be able to say that of all who tried instrumental exams not one failed. The grads all took part at a concert in Toronto the week of their exams, and again were successful. On June gih the pupils of Miss McTaggart, Miss Perley and Miss Wright gave a very successful recital. All of these teachers are to be congratu- lated on the marked progress of their pupils this yean 20 VOX COLLEGII. Hrt. There have been no events of note in this depart- ment lately. Everyone has worked her very best, and the display certainly shows it. It is not often there are four grads in art all together, and especially who all took the course in two years instead of three. Miss Ethel Foulds, an art girl of last year, has moved to London. She has been studying art at a Toronto school, and old friends will be glad to learn that she passed her examination successfully. She has our congratulations. ©rator . " The methods of instruction in the Emerson system of oratory differ fundamentally from those usually employed in teaching oratory, and it is to this that the great success of the system is due. While many systems work for simulation of power, this system developes sources of real power ; while others have dealt with effects, this deals primarily with causes ; while others teach what particular forms of voice and gesture are adapted to the ex- pression of particular sentiments, this developes those qualities of mind and heart which lie behind all forms of manifestation, and which spontaneously create the requisite artistic forms of expression. " In other words : We never are taught a tone or a gesture by imitation. We make the study that of character building. Those qualities which are within the student are strengthened and developed and trained to serve his cause in oratory. Nothing is acquired. All progress is from within. No one can make a success of oratory, whether he be a thinker or interpreter if he have a selfish object. He may have wonderful gifts of voice and gesture, but until all thought of self is put aside and the love of the general good is made the object of every effort there will be a perceptible deficiency in all he may bring before the public. The aim and object of this system is to develope the entire person till voice, manner, look, gesture and bearing are combined to form a faultless medium through which truth may be expressed with unity, beauty and strength. A great many people, and even some of the girls in the ColIe ;e, who should observe for themselves and know better, have the idea that when a girl says she is going to graduate in elocution that she is taking a very easy course. If people would only know that memorizing selections is the very least part of expression, and that after that has been done thoroughly there are many hours of hard study yet required, even for the smallest verses, they would see how wrong they are in their present view of the subject. Then the literary course is quite difficult. To begin with, one is required to have a second class standing in literary subjects and gen- eral profficiency in all High school sub- jects up to that point, and beside this there are logic, history of literature, rhetoric, English prose from Elizabeth to Victoria, including four long and difficult essays to be written, and five plays of Shakespeare to be analyzed and examined upon, all of which are aside from dramatizing the two plays of Hamlet and Macbeth, the evolution of ex- pression, the perfective laws of art and a thorough understanding of voice and physical culture in their relation to elocution. Written examinations are required on the theory of the last four, as well as that the pupil should be perfectly capable of apply- ing these different rules and steps to the practical proJuction of well-rendered, natural and effective selections of every variety. Therefore, oh, thoughtless public ! who do not know whereof ye speak, pause before you smile when you hear of someone taking the degree " Mis- tress of Elocution, " and you will not speak so lightly of the earnest efforts and difficultly attained honors of those fortunate enough to deserve and possess that title. One of the Berlin daily papers says by Miss Mer- ner, a former student of O.L.C., who took her cer- tificate in oratory last year and recently gave a selection at a concert in the opera house of that town : — " The recitation of Miss Merner was one of the best features of the programme. Her selection was given with intense dramatic force, which power is possessed in a hi h degree by this accomplished young lady. She poss esses an enviable reputation as an elocutionist and is to be complimented upon the artistic rendition of a difficult, yet withal beauti- ful rnd impressive number. We take great pleasure in calling attention to the fact, that once more the prize essay was written by an elocution girl. This has always been the caset vox COLLEGII. 21 We congratulate Mi .s Lancely on her success. " Miss Stone recited with good effect, giving a finish which few amateurs could do, particularly at a time when the audience had not sufficiently quieted down to be able to fully appreciate her fine elocu- tionary talents. " " Miss Badgley simply captured the audience. For those who knew of her capabilities this was no surprise, but simply what was expected. After each number she received a hearty encore to which she kindly responded. " The above is clipped from the description of the concert held in Brooklin at the " Old Boys " re- union on May 2Sth, which appeared in the Chronicle, May 29th. The elocution class this month has not done much in the way of recitals, but, nevertheless, it has not been inactive. All energies have been required for examination time and the closing recitals, and hence the silence of the ever-active elocution class. After many postponements it was decided, on account of the push of closing work and the early departure of some of the girls who were to have taken part, that the recital which was to have been given by Miss Badgley ' s pupils should be with- drawn. There are quite a large number of girls expecting to come back and graduate in this course next year. We wish them every success, and they should be glad if the class is large, as it makes dramatic work (the principal source of power as well as of pleasure of the senior year) much more easy and interesting, provided all are satisfied to leave all arrangements to the wisdom and judgment of Miss Teskey. There is no medal this year, so the graduates are spared quite a trial in the way of competition. Our department has been larger this year than ever before, and has certainly been a force in the school. We have been well represented in the " Vox, " and owe thanks to Miss Richardson for this. Let the good work continue next year, for our cause is great and good, and should not be neglected. (H. B.) The Acta Victoriana holds a high place among the exchanges of this month. Its articles are of universal interest, and its illustrations especially are excellent. Bomeetic Science. On Friday, June 5th, we gave our annual gradu- ates dinner in honor of the graduates of this depart- ment. The menu was as follows : Consomme Bread Sticks Salmon Souffle Olives Salted Almonds Bon Bons Spring lamb Frozen Mint Asparagus Tips in Canopies Hollandaise Sauce Francouia Potatoes Sweedish Timbales Creamed Chicken Tomato and Cucumber Salad Strawberry Ice Cream Cafe Noir. The guests were Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Abraham, Rev, Mr. and Mrs. Wright, Mr. Black, Mr. Umphrey, and Rev. Mr. Abraham, jr. Dr. Hare and Miss Burkholder were host and hostess. Dr. Hare gave a toast to the members of the graduating class — the Misses Silcox, Craig and Chapman. It was replied to by Mr. Abraham, jr., and Mr. Black. Rev. Mr. Abrahr.m, sr., and Rev. Mr. Wright said a few words of congratulation to the class. The centrepiece was gracefully decorated with pink roses, and a beautiful pink rose was laid at each place. Miss Madison, our instructress, is to be congratu- lated on her work this year, and those of us who are returning will miss her very much next year as she does not expect to return. 1 . M. C. H. On May 8th Miss Carson gave a very interesting and instructive talk before the College on Social Settlement work in the large cities. She told us many things which we did not before realize would come into this work and we are sorry that lack of space prevents our giving a synopsis of her remarks. We are looking forward to the pleasure of another talk from her in the future. Miss Silcox, on May nth, gave us a paper on Mary Lyon, the founder of the first female seminary in America. When she had finished we all felt our love and admiration for this true friend of the school- girl increase a ten fold. On May 17th we listened to the life of another 22 VOX COLLEGII. noble woman, Miss Elizabeth Fry, who spent her life in reforming the prisons and through her unself- ish zeal won the love and respect of all. This paper was read by Miss D. Fead. Miss Teskey chose as her subject— " What is your life. " She made us all feel the value of the passing moment, and a desire to make the most of every dny in life. All enjoyed and were benefitted by her beautiful address. At our last meeting Rev. Mr. Abraham gave a very helpful address on christian womanhood. He pointed out the traits of character we must cultivate in order to attain the highest type of womanhood. This proved a fitting close to our year ' s work, embodying as it did the chief characteristics of the great and noble women whose lives we have been studying during the year. The girls were very kind in helping us to make these meetings more pleasant by vocal numbers. Lack of space prevents mentioning them individually, but we wish to thank them heartily for their assistance. personals. Rev. Dr. MacDiarmid was one of last week ' s visitors. Rev. Mrs. Coon, an ex-pupil, was here for a few days last week. Mr. Vermilyea spent a few hours not long ago with his daughter. Miss Weir had the pleasure of a visit from her two little sisters over Sunday. Miss Williams and Miss Metcalf spent the end of last week in Bowmanville. The Misses Simonds had their brother of Roches- ter with them for a short visit. Mrs. Jones, of Hagersville, our former teacher, spent a few days with Miss Copeland. Mr. Campazzi, of Saratoga Springs, came for his daughters and made a short visit to the College. Mrs. Hare, after a long and trying illness, has at last been able to leave the College for her summer home in Bowmanville. Her nurse. Miss Crerar, went with her. Everyone is sorry that through ill-health Miss Ada Winter was unable to return for the closing term. Miss Badgley and Miss Stone were the guest of Miss Edmanson, a pupil of ' 02, of Oshawa, last Sunday. Miss Seccombe and Miss Gumpricht went to Toronto on Tuesday to try their instrumental exam- inations at the Conservatory. On the first Saturday of June, visiting Saturday, there wys an exceptionally large division of girls entertained by their kind town friends. The members of the Y. W. C. A. were very much disappointed that Hon. John Dryden was unable to address their meeting on last Sunday. Among the number of O.L.C. girls to spend con- ference Sunday in Oshawa were : Misses Seccombe, Lanceley, Edmison, Turk, MacDiarmid, E. Faed, D. Faed and Gumpricht. Miss Jessie Gibson has been forced, on account of illness, to return to her home in Toronto. The girls all hope Jessie will be well enough to attend the Commencement exercises. As Miss Anna Pritchard has not been home to Nassau, Bermuda, for two years, it was with great delight that she greeted the Rev. Mr. and Mrs. Archer from her home, who are on their way to England. Misses Badgley and Stone made a short visit to Toronto not long ago, and they had the pleasure of being accompanied back by Miss Stone ' s father, who came for the trip and returned on the next train. They were also in Brooklin for a short time to- gether. All the teachers and students were delighted to see Miss Graham, one of last year ' s teachers, who has been the guest of Miss Rowell for the past few days. Miss Graham is now teaching Moderns in Mount Ahison College, Sackville, Nova Scotia. Miss Paisley accompanied Miss Graliam to Toronto on Tuesday. vox COLLEGII. Xocals.

FRIEDHEIM : " The Concert Grand Piano of the Heintz- man Co.. used in my recitals in Toronto, give completest satisfaction. 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 — charmingly constructed in every detail.
