Now, it has long been a puzzle as to the reason ot it being called the “ Garnet,” so, when the time came for the mighty class of ' 84 to take possession of it, they, then and there, deter¬ mined that the sphynx-like riddle should be solved. The editors, all armed with mysterious scrolls and faded parch¬ ments, met in the coal house, back of North College, and after deep and occult consultations they saw that they had solved the mighty problem, and that it should be the solemn duty of ye scribe to announce to the inhabitants of ye mundane sphere that the reason that it was dubbed tw Garnet” was because it was read. Many of the etherial and aesthetic organizations, such as Ye hash house of Old Dorp,” c., have been doomed to ‘‘blush un¬ seen ” this year and in their places we have put such literary matter as shall be interesting and instructive ( ?) to every one. Should our jokes be rather sharp, remember that it is in no unkind spirit that we put them in, but rather, that we may raise a laugh at our neighbor’s expense. The brief history of the college, written by Prof. Wells, will be of interest to every one and the tragedy of Macbeth will be well worth reading. We are deeply indebted to Dr. Potter and Major McMurray for their assistance and the promptness with which they re¬ sponded to our call. THE GARNET. s 4§kUutatio. 4«- § S Hail our brothers, where you linger ! Thus we greet you in our turn ; Thus the pie receives our finger, Whether rashly, we shall learn, ’Tis but Nature’s native urging, Sends creation into print, From each brain a book emerging, Though there’s less than nothing in’t, Lo, the footprints, broad and hollow, Strung along our streamlet’s marge ! Why should we be loth to follow, Though you hint our boot is large? We confess it, does it matter? P’raps the print will longer stay, And ’twill take a bigger spatter, To erase it quite away. Wit we have not; don’t pretend it; Grant we’re but of common earth ; Make the motion, don’t amend it — Give it you for what it’s worth. There ! You see we’re wholly humble, All our weaknesses admit— To your lofty points we’ll tumble, Grant you’ve beauty, may be wit— But some things are planted nearer To our hearts, than paltry praise, And they grow forever dearer, As we count our college days. 6 THE GARNET Yes, perhaps your ways are wittier, And your .rhymes may run less slow, And your faces may be prettier, But we challange you to show. Home-love more than our’s for Union— Pride of ev’ry humble heart, Even though, a pickled onion, Oft its nibbling makes us smart— And, in all your heap of treasures, Show us, show us anywhere, That, than our’s you’ve plumper pleasures, Making merrier crabbed care— Warmer slapjacks, sweeter lasses, (More than these what heart can wish?) Cooler groves, while summei passes. Finer trout-brooks, fewer fish ; Darker nights, when mischief hatches, And the starving student jogs, Handier hen-roosts, melon patches, Sleepier farmers, slower dogs— Fails our language to relate them, Breath and jingle, likewise fail; Poets tongue can never mate them— Hail, our distant brothers, hail!

TIE only college within the colony ot JSlew York before the Revolution was King’s College, of New York City, which was re-organized soon after the peace as Columbia College The rapid growth of settlements toward the north and west had suggested to thoughtful minds the pressing need of some insti¬ tution for superior instruction at a convenient point in the in¬ terior, and this idea of central accommodation for all interests, not many years later, led to the removal of the State capital to Albany. Even in the midst of the Revolution we find the project ' of a college at Schenectady seriously entertained, but it did not gain sufficient strength to secure actual existence until some years af¬ ter the peace. A project like this is seldom discussed without exciting local interests, and before the choice fell upon the quiet old Dutch town on the Mohawk, the claims of Poughkeepsie, Albany and Waterford were strongly urged as suitable joints for the establishment of a college in the interior, but not to the extent of dividing the effort w’ ch was for the common benefit of all. A beginning in literary life at Schenectady was made in the formation of an association for mental improvement and debate in 1793, and on the 29th of January, 1793, a classical and scien¬ tific school was incorporated by the regents of the university under the name of “The Trustees of the Academy in the Town THE GARNET. of Schenectady.” A building was erected on the northwest corner of what are now Union and Ferry streets, and in 1793 a school was opened under the care of Col. John Taylor, of New Jersey. This academy appears to have been conducted with much ability, and being well sustained by the community in which it was planted, became the germ of the college, which, fifteen years before, had been an object of earnest effort and ac¬ tive discussion ; nor can we doubt that through these years of hope deferred the favorite thought was cherished, until the plan I was fully realized. The legislature having vested in the regents of the university the right of granting college charters, a memorial was addressed to that board by the trustees of the academy, which led to the granting of a charter to twenty-four persons therein named, and their successors, under the title of u The Trustees of Union Col¬ lege in the Town of Schenectady, in the State of New York.” They were empowered to hold an estate with an income of $ I 3 333 were vested with the usual powers of a college, and were empowered to fill vacancies in their board by election of the remaining members. The trustees of the academy were, a few days after, allowed to vest their property in the college. The name “ Union College” was given as expressing the in¬ tention of uniting all religious s£cts in a common interest for the common good by offering equal advantages to all, with preference to none. It was designed to found an institution up¬ on the broad basis of Christian unity, and this idea has ever since been faithfully followed in the spirit of the original inten¬ tion, no particular religious denomination having at any time claimed or attempted to control its management, or to influence the choice of trustees or faculty. It is believed that this was the first college in the United States not confessedly denomina¬ tional in its character. The college was organized on the 19th of October, 1795, bv the election of the Rev. John Blair Smith, D.D., of Philadel¬ phia, as president; John Taylor, A.M., as prolessor of mathe¬ matics and natural philosophy ; and the Rev, Andrew Yates, as professor of Latin and Greek languages. 22 THE GARNET The first commencement was held in May, 1797, and the first degree conferred upon three young men who had fin¬ ished the course of study then required. This was an oc¬ casion of signal and novel interest to all the country around, and drew together a large and enthusiastic audience. Dr. Smith was succeeded by the Rev. Jonathan Edwards, D.D., who died in 1801, and was followed by the Rev. Jon¬ athan Maxcy, D.D., who resigned in 1804. Although frequent changes are generally adverse to pros¬ perity, and although the college was still feeble, it was not without enterprise. Under the presidency of Dr. Edwards, a new edifice was begun, on a scale magnificent for that ||| day and still one of the finest and best-built in the city. An event, howevei, occurred in 1804 which proved to be of peculiar advantage to the institution, and from which its success may be justly dated. This event was the choice of the Rev. Eliphalet Nott, as president. Mr. Nott was then a young clergyman of Albany, known at the time as an elo¬ quent and effective public speaker of dignified and court¬ eous manners and distinguished learning, but not as yet known for that talent in the education of young men which this election gave him the opportunity to exercise and which has scarcely been surpassed in the history of any American college. Endowed by nature with a keen perception of character, a discriminating judgment in developing latent talent, a dignity of manners commanding both love and re¬ spect, a facility in governing young men, wherein the secret lay in teaching them to govern themselves, and a zeal and earnestness in the discharge of every duty, he acquired and held, through a long and active life, a comamnding position as an educator which was felt and acknowledged through¬ out the country. Dr. Nott found the college wanting both means and stu¬ dents. The inhabitants of Schenectady had proposed an endowment of $30,000 in lands, obligations and money ; THE GARNET. 23 but the largest subcription was only $250, the next $100, and the total sum altogether, from sources other than direct gift of the State, but $42,043.74. Some grants were made by the State in years as below specified. The building be¬ gun under Dr. Edward’s presidency was still unfinished, and the college was burdened with a heavy debt. The means that had been provided were, of course, quite inadequate to the wants of a prosperous college, and to sup¬ ply the needed endowment recourse was had to an expedi¬ ent now forbidden by a better public sentiment, but then deemed proper for raising funds in aid of every religious, educational and benevolent enterprise of the day, and for every public improvement. King’s College, in New York City, had already been aided to funds by a public lottery, but other institutions had since arisen which had received no such aid. It was there¬ fore deemed advisable to urge the passage of a law, which was secured March 30, 1805, for raising the sum of $80,000 by lottery. A few years’ experience showed that the location in the city was not sufficiently ample, and the observing eyes of Dr. Nott, at an early period in his presidency, had noticed in the suburbs a better one that combined in rare degree every advantage desirable. On the eastern border of the city the fields rise by a gentle slope to a plain of moderate elevation and of easy access. Near the upper edge of this slope the construction of a terrace a few feet high would af¬ ford a level campus of ample space, and a site for buildings that would overlook the valley, the river and the neighbor¬ ing city, while northward glimpses of mountains blue from distance, and southwestward ranges of hills dividing the waters of the Mohawk and Susquehanna River, would pre¬ sent a panorama of peculiar loveliness. A gently murmur¬ ing brook issuing from dense woodlands flowed across the 24 THE GARNET. grounds just north of the proposed site, and in the rear al- ternating fields and groves extended several miles eastward to the Hudson. A tract of some two hundred and fifty acres was secured and new buildings begun upon plans drawn by M. Ramee, a French engineer then eminent in the country, and for a time employed by the National Government in planning fortifications and public works. Construction was begun on College Hill in 1812, and the buildings were first occupied in 1814. To provide means for these improvements Dr. Nott succeeded in obtaining another grant from the State j of $200,000. Although prominence is given to the personal influence of its president, during many years of prosperity, justice re¬ quires us to record the fact, which ' all the graduates will in¬ dorse, that a large measure of gratitude is due from them to the other members of the faculty for their talent, fidelity and ability in conducting the interests more especially con- f fided to their care. But advancing age brings its infirmities ; and in 1852 the Rev. Laurens P. Hickok, D.D., was called from the Au¬ burn Theological Seminary to serve as vice-president, and upon him gradually devolved the cares of the presidency, although they were not actually conferred in name until af¬ ter the death of Dr. Nott in 1866. On the retirement of Dr. Hickok, the Rev. Charles A. Aiken, D.D.. of Dartmouth College, was chosen president, and he filled the duties with acceptance until 1871, when, for domestic reasons, involving the health of a member of his family, he resigned to seek a less rigorous climate ; and in the selection of a successor the choice fell upon the Rev. 1 Eliphalet Nott Potter, D.D., a grandson of Dr. Nott, and son of Bishop Alonzo Potter. | This selection of a man at an age much younger than that at which college presidents are usually chosen, might THE GARNET. 25 appear to the stranger as a bold departure from established precedent. But the friends of the college justify this action by pointing to the marked improvements since inaugurated ; the new building- erected, the noble endowment funds since received and the increasing numbers in attendance, especially in the lower classes ; and upon these they base their expectations of the future, and look forward with con¬ fidence to a new and vigorous growth of the college, with increasing means and a wider field for usefulness. The principal buildings of Union College are North Col- |j lege and South College, six hundred feet apart, and each with a colonnade facing inward ; a Memorial Hall midway between, but standing back three hundred feet from the frontline; a gymnasium in the rear of South College; a President’s House and three other dwellings on the line with the main college buildings, and a professor’s residence at some distance east of the principal group of buildings. The dlans of North and South Colleges are alike except as to the position of the colonnades, and when viewed in front each appears as a pair of large three-story dwellings, connected by a four-story building, the latter faced with pilasters to the whole height and arches extending up to in¬ clude the first and second stories. Each college building is 200 by 40 feet on the ground. The end portions are used as residences for professors and the central part as dormit¬ ories for students. This central portion has three separate entrances front and rear, with lour rooms on each floor, making, originally, forty-eight rooms in each college. With¬ in the past few years a renovation of the interior has been undertaken, and rooms in some cases connected for greater convenience, so as to appear more cheerful and home-like. The colonnades are each 250 feet in length by 25 in breadth, and terminate in square-roofed buildings one story higher. These buildings are each 80 by 50 feet on the ground. The North Colonnade and building are used for 26 THE GARNET. chemical and philosophical apparatus and lecture-rooms, the chemical laboratory and cabinets of the engineering depart¬ ment. Those on the south are used for chapel, library, cabinet, office and recitation-rooms. A Gymnasium was built in 1874 at the cost of prominent Alumni of Albany and Troy. The building is 80 by 40 feet on the ground and two stories in height. It is large and well equipped and is under the control of a professional gymnast. A new building known as Washburn Hall, to be devoted to the purpose of library and recitation rooms, has just been completed in the rear of Memorial Hall. The college grounds embrace about one hundred acres, including the campus, gardens and grounds properly be¬ longing to the college and essential for its use, besides some one hundred acres of woodlands and fields adjoining. THE JACKSON GARDEN. During the residence of Prof. Thomas Macauley, more than fifty years ago. a beginning was made in the improve¬ ment of a garden north of North College. The work was, however, scarcely more than a beginning until Prof. Isaac W. Jackson became a resident of the adjoining dwelling in 1831, when a series of improvements were begun, which, aided by a small annual grant from the trustees, have grad¬ ually transformed a wild ravine and tangled woodland’into a charming ramble and pleasant retreat. The grounds em¬ brace some twelve acres, and combine many attractions of sylvan solitude and floral beauty. _ Also Governors of University. Ex-Officio. 28 THE GARNET. Officer of lpnicn Univ ' cr itu.

Even when we were Juniors, we were looked-up to and revered far more than eighty-two—we were Seniors before our time ; some of our men graduated in Junior year and the wonder is that more did not. flow well do we remember the time when we used to gaze admiringly on the men of eighty, as they filed into chapel, and wonder if we should ever sit where they sat, but we sit there now and smile complacently as we think how w ' ell we fill the seats ; and won¬ der not at the awe-inspired Freshmen who look at us as we looked at eighty. Those were happy days (for we never feared eighty-two) but they are past and gone ; Sophomore and Junior years are also known only in memory ; we perceive that we are Seniors and we accept the doctrine of consciousness. We have changed, not alone in appearance, but also, in num¬ ber forty-nine we entered—thirty-one we graduate. Fifty-six have had their names on our roll but fifteen have fallen in battle or been taken prisoner by the enemy ; but the class has borne the brunt of many battles and now, like scarred and war-worn veterans, we are soon to be mustered out—soon we will have to seek homes and fortunes for ourselves. The world is before us but we can no longer fight life’s battles together, we must seek new comrades on new fields. Some will go to Boston, Some to London and to Rome, Some to Greenland’s icy mountains, More perhaps to stay at home. Historian. THE GARNET. 35 CLASS OFFICERS. SENIOR YEAR.

Nether class.men are to us the sublimated quintescence of thirteen-miles-below-noti- cability, the illiterate tatterdemalions of unregenerate humanity. Entirely elevated above the insipid, turbulent, truculent tur- gescency Fresho-Sophomoriculated I-know-it-allency, we un- mtermittently employ our psycological equipments in the con¬ templation of the recondite problems of abstruce transcendent¬ alism and devise humanitarian schemes for the amelioration of every-body—except ourselves tion. Grandiloquent pomposity we regard as the climax of higgle- dypigledy garrulous artificiality ; and, therefore, in our colli- | quial and controversial effusions adhere to the attenuated ethe- ! reality of pelluced simplicity about our multitudinous meritori- I ous transactions, we are always reticent; confabulation con¬ cerning our agonistical encounters, we deem pretentiously pre¬ sumptuous and our unobstrusiveness precludes any superfluous ostentatious parade, our manifold commendable personal at¬ tributes. A specimen of th e genus YresYi-homo with an erroneous con¬ ception derived from his own observation once with colossal insolence thus interrogated the chirographer: 44 Do Juniors pony?” [all in 13 letters]. The said chirographer ejaculated : k4 If by this inuendo you insinuate that in our post mortem ex¬ aminations of the defunct languages we resort to surreptitious appliances and evince a marvelous affection for Bohny abor¬ tions of the equine species in order to expedite the transmuta¬ tion of heterogeneous linguistic incongruities into our vernacular you approach the verge of reprehensible prevarication and render yourself subject to solidified blasphemous effervescences of intensified scriptural quotations,” and he said, 44 O-o-o-o-o- h-h,” and died.

The chief mourners of the defunct Al-G- Bray were prepared to shed their tears. ’Twas a time when the timorous Fresh quaked in their trousers. As the last rays of the sun were gleaming over the hill tops, three Sophs, each armed with his last twenty-five cents sallied forth in search of that product of the hen, called eggs. Vainly did they interview various grocerymen until finally they found one who said unto them, Lo ! I have that in my pos¬ session which ye seek. Behold, in yon box lie thirty score eggs in all the pristine freshness of spring. And they held council together and exchanged commodities. Now, when this news was spread among the Sophs, it caused great rejoicing, which came to the ears of a certain man, called Junior, and he said unto himself, Verily, it behooveth me to prick up my ears that I may discover what diabolical schemes these Sophs contemplate. With much circumspection does he discover the plan and he whispereth it unto the meek Fresh. Immediately these sub¬ dued beings are transformed into creatures of cunning, for whilst the Sophs are strengthening their inner men the Fresh secretely make short work of the thirty score eggs. ’Tis midnight. The timorous Fresh walk with bold mien and smile upon their brow, whilst the plotting Sophs search in vain for their eggs. Now the Sophs slink back to their rooms, like the canine with the kettle attached to his posterior ex¬ tremity, and swear vengeance upon the innocent and unsophis¬ ticated Fresh. 46 THE GARNET. Sp|E call us Sophomores and ye do well to call them Sopho- m mores, who, for six long months have trained the cheeky 44 Fresh ” and devoured his set-ups. It is enough to compare the self-sufficient every-one-look-at- me Freshman who entered college last September, to the meek and subdued being of the present. You ask, whence comes this change? We answer proudly that it is due to our improved s ystem of training. To the past we never refer except to re¬ count our victories in the ball field, cane rush and recitation rooms (?) We point with pride to our 44 pitch, catch ” and 44 third base,” on the University and to the words engraved on the class championship cup—won by the class of ’85. As to our intellectual ability, we refer you to our 44 Profs.” and 4 Tutes” to whom we deigned to recite—sometimes we would not deign but would preserve a haughty, impassable silence when called upon to elucidate. ’85 entered upon the Sophomore year with zeal and energy. We have raised 44 ponies” and cultivated such arts as horn¬ blowing, billiard playing, et cetera . The et cetera is very expressive and includes a great deal which the imagination may supply. The Freshmen, surely, cannot complain of any lack of atten¬ tion. We have always seen that they were in bed at a proper hour and have even visited them after they had retired to assure ourselves that the 44 dear little lambkins ” were all tucked in bed. We have taught them the fundamental principles of base ball and foot ball, and all such as will tend to make them worthy of the name of Sophomores next year. As Sophomores we have many peculiarities. We will frankly confess to our professors that we do nvt 44 catch the pure thoughts” in our French literature.. We see no • 4 beautiful curves” in a descriptive Geometry problem, nor do we find ' any thing to admire in Olney’s close reasoning. Our inherent an¬ tipathy to mathematics is becoming almost as proverbial as our ardor for athletics. The past, with its victories and defeats, has gone from us like a dream. Let us not revert to it, but use its experience for a more glorious future. Our prospects are as bright as those of any other class. We have heartily supported all the time- honored customs of this institution and in future, as in the past, will always hold dear the honor of our Alma Mater.

Now, it came to pass that in these days there dwelt in the land a proud and stiff-necked generation of Sophs which did bear envy and malice in their hearts against the humble Fresh. So when the generation of Fresh had departed from the city of Dorp, the elders of the Sophs gathered together and held deep confabulation. The result was that they decided to visit and “fix” the habitations ot the Fresh us an example of what they were to expect on account of their freshness. Thus it happened that while the innocent Fresh were enjoys ing themselves eating soup and gruel, the wicked Sophs, bent on destruction, maliciously, and with dire intent, seized and destroyed numerous private papers. Now, it came to pass that in these days there dwelt in the land a mighty ruler of the Fresh, called “ Tute,” (which, be¬ ing interpreted, meaneth Algebra Sticker) and he, suspecting mischief, mingled with the bold Sophs and beheld their ravages. Revealing himself unto them he said, Behold in me the much- feared Tute ! but they did expectorate upon him and drove him 1 out without fear. Now, the generation of Fresh returned at the first cock-crow and were sore vexed when they beheld the condition of their habitations, so they drew nigh unto the great Rulers of the land and did complain of the conduct of the vainglorious Sophs. Counciling together, the Great Physician and the Rulers did deem it necessary for the health of certain Sophs to seek healthier climates elsewhere, and that the sniveling and pusil¬ lanimous Fresh should be dosed with various mixtures of herbs that they might some day wax strong like men and cast off their diapers. ■i§ las potory of M-f |®|LTHOUGH we are the smallest class that has entered col- lege for several years, in anything requiring pluck and perseverance our lack of numbers is not felt. We entered Union when the old barbarisms of college life were yielding be¬ fore influences of right and justice. It was in our power to re¬ tard or promote this change for the better. We are glad that this was so. That we had the opportunity to identify ourselves with the completion of a change so important. We are glad that we mark the dividing line between the college life of the past and that of the future. We have made mistakes. We have forgotten at times our resolutions, but our purpose has remained the same and if we can judge from the two terms which have passed, we shall be able, when, as Seniors we stand again on the threshold of Old Union, to look back over our deeds with satisfaction and the consciousness of work well done.

Soph is foul and Fresh is fair, He’s not so wise, but we don’t care. SCENE II. — Macbeth ' s room , N. C. Macbeth and Dnncan studying. Dun. Ah, good my lord, a Fresh is fresh, mayhap ; And yet ’twere better thus a thousand fold Than to be sickish, stale like long-drawn beer, We both are calves ; we frisk and gambol here, In one broad meadow, and we differ not, Except, perchance, in this ; you sw ell your girth With one more year of nibbling here than I, Ape not the portly ; you’re not yet an ox With all your puffing. Mac. Cheek, you’ve got. I trow, And great enough to grace the full-grown swine And not the milk-fed gruntling. But my name Is Patrick Dennis ; if it thin not fast, You’ll learn, I take it, our good custom soon. Dun. Ay, ’chance I’ll learn them if my father fails, The stated stipend ; and then I perforce Economize and let my wash-bills run To buy my cigarettes, and even cheat The contribution-box to buy my beer. I shall have learned them, when some simp’ring siss Craves all my time, and, for my pains, I win Your name, “ euphonious “ Old Flunky Flunk,” ’ I shall have learned them, when- [Exit hastily. Mac. Infernal cheek! Cut most unkindcst! Wound of wantonness ! Can this be I ! the noblest of them all? Who, at the head of scarce a dozen horns, Have faced the fiercest Freshman in his den, 73 THE GARNET. And forced him on his knees to beg his life, And made him sing his simjde nurs’ry songs Amid our storms of toots and yells “ Oh Frosh ! ” j Can this be I ! the prince of Delta Q.’s Who oft, at dead of night, with masked crew Have blanket-tossed the sprawling Freshman high, And soothed his sores and sobs with copious pails Of pure, cold water, fresh from Jackson’s spring ? Can this be I ? thus bearded in my den By thrice the freshest Freshman of them all ?— [Ex it. SCENE TIT.—College walk , Union Street. The three Witches enter , Macbeth and Banquo. Mac. I tell you, Banquo, all my temper’s gone, By Fresh, before, I never was so cheeked. He is my room-mate, else, full long ago I would have taught the boy his proper place. Ban. Well, teach him now ; your duty—What are these So withered and so wild in their attire That look not like the inhabitants o’ the earth, And yet are on it ? Live you ? or are you aught What man may question ? You seem to understand and By each at once her choppy finger laying Upon her skinny lips ; you should be women, And yet your beards forbid me to interpret That you are so. Mac. Speak, if you can ; what are you ? 1 Witch. All hail, Macbeth ! hail to thee, chief of Sophs ! 2 Witch. All hail, Macbeth ! hail to thee, Butt of Blun¬ ders ! THE GARNET. 79 Il ll J Witch. All hail, Macbeth ! hereafter king of Laugh- stocks. Ban. My boy, why do you sta r t and seem to fear Things that do sound so fair? T the name of truth, Are ye fantastical, or that indeed Which outwardly ye show ? my noble partner You greet with present grace and great prediction Of noble having and of royal hope, That he seems rapt withal ; to me you speak not, If you can look into the seeds of time, And say which grain will grow and which will not, Speak then to me, who neither beg nor fear Your favors nor your hate. Witch. Hail! 2 Witch. Hail ! J Witch. Hail! 1 Witch. Lesser than Macbeth and greater. 2 Witch. Not so happy, yet much happier. J Witch. Thou shalt create a king of Laughing-stocks, Though thou thyself be none, Macbeth and Banquo, Hail ! Witch. Banquo and Macbeth, all hail! Mac. I know I’m chief of Sophs by Siriels shipping ; But how the Butt of Blunders? Is he not Within the Freshman Class, a booby soft ? And to be king of Laughing-stocks stands not Much nearer, in the prospect of belief. Ban. They’re luny. Come, I have a little scheme I think wiil fit your case beyond your dreams. {Exeunt. So THE GARNET. SCENE IV. — Macbeth ' s room. Macbeth alone , half studying half reflecting. Mac. It were a righteous recompense for him, To do as Banquo says ; assist some night To whirl this freshling from our den away Some several miles and leave him in his shirt To shift and shiver back and ask our grace. If it were done, when ’tis done, then ' twere well, If it were done quickly ; if the clever trick Could trammel up the finding out and catch With his surcease success. Would but this game Might be the be-all and the end-all here— But here, within this room and den of mine, I ' d jump the row to come when I go home And meet my Freshman ' s governor and my own, But in this case there would be judgment here If Duncan found me out; for he is tough And full as tall and hard of hit as I. And truly too he’s here in double trust ; First he’s my cousin and his daddy holds A thumping mortgage on my daddy ' s farm ; Strong both against the deed we meditate, Then he’s my room-mate, knows my ins and outs, Can dose my bottle when my back is turned, Can lend my ponies, my umbrella too, And pay me for my prank a thousand ways. Besides, this Duncan has sustained himself In all his work, and done it all so straight, His string of i o spots, in a chorus strong, Will plead like beggars, brazen-tongued, against The deep damnation of his taking off, And Freshmen, like to naked, new-born babes, Striding their horses, or fair Prex’s zeal, Pricking the Profs, to sterner discipline, Will make the horrid deed a horrid bore THE GARNET. In shape of double work, I have no spur To prick the sides of my intent, for sure Most calm consideration pleads against The deep damnation of his taking off, Eriter Ban quo. Ban . Whose taking off, my lord ? methought I heard Some utterance like it. Mac. Duncan. Ban. Whither, then ? Mac. To Scotia or beyond, as you proposed, In dead of night with but his night-gown on, But we’ll proceed no further in the business. He hath badgered me of late ; but I’ve received A notice of probation ; why, is blind, Except Tve lately stayed in nights too much, In prudence though, such honors should be worn With meekest penitence. Ban. Was the threat drunk Wherein you spoke yourself? hath it slept since ? And wakes it now to look so green and pale At what it did so freely ? From this time, Such I account thy grit, ait thou afraid To be the same in thine own ace and valor As thou art in desire. Wouldst thou have that Which thou esteem’st the boss joke of thy life And live a coward in thy class-esteem Letting “ I dare not ” wait upon “ I would,” Like the poor cat i’ the adge ? Mac . Prithee peace ; I dare do all that fits a Sophomore ; Who dares do more is none. Ban . What beast was’t then That made you break this enterprise to me? When you complained this “ freshest of the Fresh ” 82 THE GARNET. Made you bring half the water, build the fire A good round half, and told enough else wrong So that my Sophomoric blood did boil. Nor help nor time was then at hand, and yet You sighed for both ; but now when I have come I o tell you nine tough men await your beck You back square out. I have been stuck and know How tender ’tis to cuss the Profs, that sticks me ; How sweet to fizzle Alec just to mark The heav’nly rapture of his wrinkling smile ; To spout my piece to gentle Lamoroux— Joys all are these, and yet I’d spurn them all— I’d cat a jar of Webster’s pickled worm 3 ; I’d make a chapel twice in every week ; I’d buss gaunt Lizzy square upon the lips ; I’d swegr that analytics are immense, Had I so sworn as you have done to this. Mac. If we should fail ? Ban. We fail ! but screw your grit, Hard to the sticking-place and we’ll not fail. When Duncan is asleep—whereto the more Some long night’s polling soundly shall invite him— What cannot our stout crew perform upon H is dainty wrists and ankles, bracelet-wise ? What not insert to still his tell-tale tongue ? You warm not to the project; but I’m bound The shame of tolerating such broad cheek Rest not with me ; for though your Freshmen were A brazen-sinewed lion, tiger-fierce, With claws like Perkins’ puns, he ' d not escape, When once our Delta Q.’s had grappled him, Then touch it not and keep yonr fingers white— For plainly some brain-spectre pales your will— But when our knock at mid-night greets your door, Just snore away and let the Freshman come THE GARNET. §3 To open up, and then—I ' ll not pollute Your virgin soul with my black plottings ; be In hand and conscience just as nearly pure, As ever lived a Sophomore demure, What do you say ? Mac. Lead forth sheer devils only, For your undaunted mettle should command The devil’s own. Whene’re your coming falls — And let it fall on whatsoever night It seems you good ; for Duncan is a boy Who minds his mother and stays in o’ nights— I’ll only sle p as if our Prex’s prayers Were floating o’er my sense at chapel-time ; I’ll lie and sleep and nothing more ; for mind, Good Banquo, if I should lend further aid Than sleeping, to this job, I’d fail far worse, If something broke, than all our gang together. Ban. I’ll take your word and ask no explanation. I’ve learned you, and I b’lieve when you turn soft And shirk your honest duty towards a Fresh, We’ll find his brimstone majesty in prayer, And honest penitence and tubs ot tears Before the idol, ’ hind our Hippodrome, Sleep, sleep, but sleep, and all is well. So long. [Exit.] Mac. You bet I’ll sleep for all I’m worth, old bow ’Twere shipping sure as shot, if I were nabbed, And, home, the gov’noFs cane would interview My valient rear, and mother’s slipper too ; And Lizzy’s tears (she’s just dead gone on Duncan) Would make a freshet over half the town, And I’d be hung for arson as the cause. Macbeth, my lad, now mind, be sure and sleep. Enter Duncan with a bunch of keys and a letter in his hand. Dim. Well, coz, I’m back again but not to stay, 84 THE GARNET. I take the next train homeward ; father writes He wants to see me for an hour or so On private business ; if you want to send A message to your folks, right happy I, As lowly Freshman to his ' lofty lord. To be its bearer. Mac. [Aside] Wants excuse to call And spoon awhile with Sis. [To Duncan .] No, Freshy dear, No " simp’ring sis” should turn your feet away From books and business. I declare I’ll tell My sister your tart speech next time I write. And ask her how she likes the terms you have For such as she. Dun. Well, write your letter now ; I ’ll wait and take it. Mac. Take me for a fresh ! Dun. Then I must put myself to serious pains To see your sister, sure, this very day. And parry your deft blow before ’tis struck. Mac. Oh frisky freshling, freshest of the Fresh, Flow gamesome are your gambols for to gaze at! Dun. I ’m fresh, I know, and glory in my freshness; But we ’ll not quar’l about it ; then good bye, I shall return upon the mid-night train. [Exit, leaving keys on the table. Macbeth picks them up.] Mac. [Smiling.] They ’re Duncan’s, and keys of the (royal castle. Drug the porter, keep the drawbridge up, And what a plight his highness will be in When he returns ! I ’ll let him thump a while And wonder what the devil he’s to do, Before I ’ll let him in ; and then I will. I think he ’s mashed on sissy too, as well As she on him ; but I don’t care ; he’ll be A Sophomore some day, and quite worth while If • ill THE GARNET. 85 • - ■ ■■ . = V For any girl to catch ; be ’s got the rocks ; Is handsome as they grow ; is full of health ; Has got more muscle than I wish he had, And runs an infant class in Sunday school ; In fact, he’s quite a model—but he’s fresh. That Banquo is a brick. He’s done the thing I meant he should-; for, while ’t was only right The Freshman should be taken off and left, I did not like the job; the Faculty Are geese enough to follow single file The way the gander leads ; the gander is The one first off; if Webb plays gander, then Poof, Price and Pinkey, Whitey, Alec, Perk Make humble tracks behind, most perfect geese. If Poof, leads off, obedient geese are then Perk, Price and Pinkey, Whitey, Alec, Webb ; If Price plays gander, then the geese become Webb, Perk and Pinkey, Whitey, Alec. Poof. Shuffle and shake them as your soul sees fit, The first-drawn Dads, the rest are proper geese ; The leader hisses, all the geese then hiss ; The leader flaps his downy wings, all flap ; The leader charges on a prowling dog, Or takes to water at a furious bull, All charge or take to water, just ns he. Now I ’m afraid our faultless Faculty Won’t take to water for the crowd that’s caught A dev’ling Duncan ; and if, ' chance, they charge At once, as sure they will, if charge they do— Well I would just as lief be somewhere else As in the gang they charge on ; then my part Shall be to bend each corporal agent to The feat of sleeping with a cloudless conscience. - v That is a feat; but yet, Macbeth, your grit Did never fail you on such occasion yet. [.Distant thunder . Curtain .] - - - - —- --- | S6 the garnet. ACT II. SCENE I. The same; dark except during lightning which shows at intervals Macbeth in bed asleep. Loud thunder and a knock at the door. Macbeth, [asleep] Macbeth, Macbeth, beware of Poof. [Knocking continues. I L ° | Macbeth [asleep ]wake Duncan with thy knocking ! [ Thunder , Loud knocking. Mac. [zuaking] Our darling P ' reshy has returned. How (long, I wonder, has the child been pounding there? I ’ll sell him cheap ; I ’ll fasten back the catch, Then back to bed again, and snore as if The world’s salvation hung upon my snore ; And when he finds at last ' the door ajar, And thinks his thumping has been needless, then Pie ’ll sell so cheap I’ll mail him home to Sis ' All wrapped in tissue paper, marked “ With Care.” [Steals softly to the door , fastens back the catch and turns. Wind blows the door zvide open. Nine masked students rush on him from behind , gag and bind him struggling , and drag him off. Sound of rapidly driven vehicle dies in the distance. Thunder and vivid lightning. SCENE II—Road beyond Scotia. Large tree by the road- |j side. Thunder and lightning with occasional dashes of rain. Vehicle with nine masked students drives up. They lay Macbeth partially freed on his back in the road and drive rapidly away Students (in the distance) Here Freshy, Freshy, Fresh ! Come Freshy, Fresh ! Mac. [loosening, ungaging himself and rising] This is a pickle ? spectral feature show, THE GARNET. 87 From this exposure! you I reckon naught. You are not worthy ; to be thus is nothing, But to be safely thus. Our fears stick deep In Banquo—in his risibility, And in his drollery of nature reigns That I do fear. ‘Tis over-much he dares, And from that dauntless temper of his mind Ere long he’ll badger Duncan with this trick— When Duncan proves he was not in his room, Then who, but me, was he they outraged thus? There’s none but him whose prying I do fear ; And under him my peace of mind is flushed, As it is said, our Prex’s was by Webb, [Rain begins to fall heavily. Heavy thunder a7id sharp lightning. Figure moves from behind and pauses under the trce. Mac. He chid the college widows, when the) flung - The name of King of Laughing-stocks at me And bade them speak to him ; then prophet-like They hailed him father of this mighty mix ; Upon my head they put a dunce’s cap And put this reputation in my gripe ; P ' or “Butt of Blunders” am I now I see, And “King of Laughii g-stocks” shall surely be. For Banquo’s laughing is my night-gown mussed ; For that the squirming Duncan have I played, Put ducats in the fist of some M. D., Only for that; and my Soph-dignity Given to the common enemy of Sophs To make them laugh—the gawky Freshman laugh, How gape the heav’ns and vomit hell ! and roll Deep-throated thunders from the yawning dark !

Ah ! very good, my little man, but why Did you assault Macduff; or was that too In favor of your class in Sunday School ? Mac. No, but to meet an insult; Duty bade Me take the step I did ; and Honor too. Prof. Web. Westminster’s catechism says not so. Prof. Wells. I do not think St. Paul ordained it thus.

Now, when Aesop, Jr., had come in, thrown aside his toga and not being able to find his clay pipe, had borrowed a cigarette, he cocked his feet upon the table and proceeded as follows : THE FABLE OF THE OPENING NIGHT. A student hearing that on a certain night a billiard room would be opened to the public, and that players would not be charged, strolled in thinking it an excellent opportunity to practice fancy shots. After completely satisfying his desires, he was presented by the landlord with a bill of $3.75 and, in consequence, was obliged to leave that amount, due his washerwoman, as a memento. Moral. — Carry a St. Jacob’s Oil Almanac with you when attempting to take advantage of opening nights. FABLE OF THE STUDENTS AND THE COP. On the evening of Cremation two students were devising a plan whereby they would seize the cops and inhumanly slaughter them. One of the latter, red-headed species, happened to be standing near by and hauled both warlike students up on a charge of conspiracy. Thus it happened that the disciples of Socrates and Gillespie left their per¬ sonal property and small change behind them. Moral. —Walls have ears and policemen sometimes wear citizen’s dress. THE GARNET. THE TABLE OF THE TWO UNRIGHTEOUS STUDENTS. A couple of students who roomed together did not observe the law commanding them to attend church twice every Sunday. Now it happened that a professor asked one in regard to their attendance, and he replied : ‘‘Certainly, sir, ij we both attend every Sabbath.” Happening to meet the other student the professor inquired likewise of him and the latter answered, “ I am sorry to say it, sir, but we never go.” i,i Moral. —Put down your denomination as Home Baptist and then the truth will be natural. THE FABLE OF THE UNCUT BOOK. A student, when calling on one of the divine maidens, who inhabit the city below the temple of learning, was en¬ tertained with a description of a lovely new novel which she had been reading. After describing the heroine “who was too lovely for anything,” and the hero “ who was per¬ fectly grand, 5 in compassion for his ignorance she offered to loan it to him. The student, calling the next day for the book, received it from her mother, the intellectual damsel being out, but upon perusal he found that only the pages of the first chapter had been cut. Moral. —Don’t imagine for a moment that a woman does 1 not know- At this point the man on the next floor began to sing, ‘ The Babies on our Block,” while the fellow across the hall struck up “ Home Sweet Home ” on the banjo ; all of the audience who were still alive departed in haste.
