If, after a single visit, he is not convinced that our goods are of superior manufacture, our garments fully equal to the average of those made by merchant tailors, and far superior to the ready-made gar¬ ments sold elsewhere, visit other clothing stores, get their prices, see how their garments are made, visit a merchant tailor, see his goods, get his prices. We are certain you will return and buy of us. We have such cases often. We know our goods are what the people want, and that our prices are right. We are showing an assortment of Mid- Weight Overcoats that cannot be approached. The same may be said of our gents’ and youths’ suits. We know the market is loaded with inferior stuffs, and do not pretend to compete with such, save that we give excellent goods for the same, or perhaps a trifle more money. We place our “ 1886 ” clothing right in front of all competition. MORRIS GROSS, Leading Tailor Clothier, MARBLE HALL, 336 and 338 River, and 13, 15 and 17 Fourth Sts., TROY, N. Y. 11 ACID PHOSPHATE.

ROBERTSON, Cleveland, O., says : “ From my experience, can cordially recommend it as a brain and nerve tonic, especially in nervous debility, nervous dyspepsia, etc. For Wakefulness. Dr. WILLIAM P. CLOTHIER, Buffalo, N. Y., says: “I prescribed it for a Catholic priest, who was a hard student, for wakefulness, extreme nervousness, etc., and he reports it has been of great benefit to him.” In Nervous Debility. Dr. EDWIN F. VOSE, Portland, Me., says: “I have prescribed it for many of the various forms of nervous debility, and it has never failed to do good.” For the Ill Effects of Tobacco. Dr. C. A. FERNALD, Boston, says: “I have used it in cases of impaired nerve function with beneficial results, especially in cases where the system is affected by the toxic action of tobacco.” INVIG ORA TING, STRENG THEN IN G , HEALTHFUL, REFRESHING.

SLEEPING, WE PRFAMKD—NOR WAS IT BUT A DREAM ; Each saw a spark, a living gleam — A SOMETHING TWINKLING AS DEW OF MORN, Which turned itself in shapely form. The world had slept, but had not dreamed. The world awaked as day-light beamed. It speaks — its accents full of rapture seem — For its vision, our " Garnet ” dazzles, as if sunlight gleam. Gcjiforiaf. TO those who read The Garnet we tender our thanks. Were we less aware of our superiority we might extol its merits to the extinction of our virtue in former numbers. Such, though, is not our province. A duty called; and in responding we have attempted to please, and at the same time to instruct. Our cuts may attract atten¬ tion that no words could concentrate, and our grinds, though oft repeated, speak none the less truly. If, to you, anything in our book should appear harsh, compel, we pray, your judgments to calmness, and see if they will not coincide with us. Our youth paints a future of interrupted success and for¬ bids our eyes to open to the fact that men awake from this dream of early life bent and gray — their past a blank, their future worse — but it claims not infallibility. Please be not misimpressed by this which you (for every one does) will undoubtedly read before attempting to digest the more profound literary matter, coming under the general head of College Fraternities, from the faculty to that organization founded some years prior to the creation of man. We rely on the first as being able to found laws with less poetry in them, to ye student, than any among us, and the last is so near a state of quiescence that more than a bare mention of Liz and Criss, as being foreign to neatness and order, would be superfluous. We fain would, but cannot, refrain from dwelling a few moments on several things of vital importance to ourselves, as classmates and fellow students. We are advocates of reform, and hail every move IX IO The Garnet. tending to the elevation of Union’s standard with joy. The new and peculiarly-formed ideas, which at present are causing students some anxiety, are doubtless the offspring of progressive spirits. Be that as it may, with some we agree, with others we do not. Our bumps of veneration are sufficiently developed to make us think that prayer- day for colleges should be set aside for Divine worship, and not passed in the pursuit of the Goddess of Wisdom. Of other changes we will but say that a judicious institution of them will be more effec¬ tive than attempts to erase, at one move, customs which have existed so long. ’T is our fate to chronicle the death of those once a part of Union. Professor Hawley was with us so short a time that we scarcely knew him ere he slept the last great sleep of death. No more through the dingy halls of south college is seen the time-worn face ot Aumie — she has become a thing of the past. “ The present ever glides into the days of yore.” But we live in the to-morrows rather than in the yesterdays of life. If our first attempt at book-making reaches not your ideal, grant us another trial, and be not surprised if ’87 should soar to the pinacle of literary fame. Though she sings not her own praises, worlds may. 1 12 The Garnet. } appa eKfpfta. IN d ofTecjio (©OQCorcjioe.. Established 1825. I eAident U}emfcerA. Prof. Jonathan Pearson, A.

It is said that the Freshman year is the most interesting and most vividly remembered of the four years at college. If so, surely our experience thus far bids fair to be no exception to the rule. And therefore the historian regrets that he is unable to furnish the members of ’89 a minute detail of the scenes and incidents in which they participated, but can only give a brief mention of the most important events. Twenty four hours had scarcely elapsed after registration when each sturdy Freshman had been summoned at night from his room by a dark crowd of individuals, who carried canes, and who wore a scornful, God-help-you-Fresh grin, which presaged mischief to their helpless victim. He discovered that he must go through the recep¬ tion accorded newly-begotten sons of Union, and be baptized in the time-honored form. Nor was water the appendage of the the baptis¬ mal ritual; but salt, onions, canes (of course), and a wickedly-inven- tive brain which devised the most ridiculous gymnastics to be acted by the timid new-comer. However, it was accepted in good spirit and the midnight rackets were soon ended. After the first week of “set ups,” when the grin faded from the Sophomore’s face, and he was known only by the omnipresent cane, life ran pleasanter for ’89. Thoughts then turned to organization. A meeting was held and officers chosen. And, thus prepared, ’89 commenced her four years’ struggle, with light and hopeful hearts, so soon to be unnerved by the formidable enemy, Algebra. On the base-ball field and in other athletic exercises, ’89 has shown surprising strength. Though worsted in the game with ’88, we played so well for beginners that we were complimented by upper¬ classmen, many affirming that the Freshman nine would take the lead in the following season. The success and enjoyment accompanying our class-officers’ supper will ever be a pleasant recollection. Of course some Sophies 3 The Garnet. were present — and it is needless to say the canes were their com¬ panions. But all these failed to produce the slightest effect, for we enjoyed ourselves without molestation or discomfort. Our Freshman days now rolled swiftly on, with naught in particu¬ lar to recall them, save the occasional terror produced by a thunder¬ ing voice, as of Jove in his wrath, or the humility in repeating the puerile task of defining a noun and verb. This monotonous routine, however, was soon varied by the spirit of ’89. For the hallowed time had arrived when she must pay her tribute, with due solemnity, to the tutelar deity of her alma mater. Accordingly, at the witching hour of night, ’89 bore its offering to Union’s shrine. There, with the assistance of the nymphs of the deity, who miraculously preserved the offering, despite its toss in the air, they humbly performed their obligation. In their zeal they even spotted themselves with the blood of the victim. What a contrast to the snow was the shroud of the idol one fine morning ! Who gave it the new dress? Some say it is the blood of ’89’s victim; others that it is only red paint, and that green would be more becoming. However, let us hope that ’89 will be rewarded for her tribute and receive propitious favors during the term of her captivity. Historian. The Garnet. 3 1 CLASS OFFICERS. President, . . . M. M. SMITH.

INCE last the history of our class was written, many events, interesting to Union men of ’88, have taken place. The winter term of our Freshman year had not yet ended when one of our classmates died. Though his stay with us was short, he left many warm friends to mourn his loss. Winter term ended, and with it Algebra. Cremation was a com plete success. With no hindrance to speak of, we carried out our entire programme, including eggs, of a green, or rather yellow, old age. On the first day of Spring term, what few of the class were back, paraded about the town, wearing on their heads plug hats of the old¬ est and most approved style. For some inexplicable reason we did not succeed very well at ball playing in our Freshman year, but we made up for it on Field Day, when we covered ourselves with glory and ist prizes. For the first week after college opened last Fall we were kept very busy teaching ye verdant Fresh of ’89 a few things necessary to the compete education of every college man. To do the Freshmen jus¬ tice, however, they took their lessons in singing, smoking, swimming and other subjects with meekness and docility. Some of us were even so kind as to go to their first class set-up, in order to see that they behaved themselves properly while drinking their milk. With all this care, if the class of ’89 does not turn out well, it is ungrateful indeed. In base ball we have improved our record by defeating every other class in college, not losing a single game, so far, in our Sophomore year. With such glories of the past, and with bright hopes for the future, closes the second volume of the history of ’88. Historian. The Garnet . 35 SOFHOCTOORE- CLASS. CLASS OFFICERS.

N OW it came to pass, after the reign of Prexy the Grand, that the people of Union were ruled by the chief men and elders. In those days the military department of Union was organized into a company of infantry. Yea, in those days the animals called Fresh¬ men were taught to carry the musket under a great man called Lieu¬ tenant, who ruled after him who was surnamed Little Mac. In the days of our fathers it happened that the tribes of Union, of one accord, without the knowledge of the elders, formed themselves into companies of cavalry, and many successful raids were made each year upon the various rulers of the tribes. And it came to pass after these things that ten spots were much more plenty throughout the land of Union. And lo ! the young men of the nation became skilled horsemen, and could ride bareback as in the saddle. And when the elders perceived that they were assaulted by the sons of Union, they rose up and with one voice forbade that the young men should become skilled horsemen, for they lifted up their voices and said : “ It is not right to give so many ten spots.” But the young men of Union did not heed the words of the elders, but secretly con¬ tinued to practice horsemanship. Many years afterward, when much time had been spent in training little horses to the saddle and the bridle, the young men of Union performed wonders in steed-riding, and wrought many miracles in the land. Yea, verily, the first was made last and the last was made first. Now when Prexy had reigned many years he departed and went into anoth er land, and the elders and mighty men ruled over the land of Union. It came to pass in those days that new elders came to aid in ruling the Unionites, and the tribe of ’87 found it very diffi¬ cult to practice horsemanship before these elders, who, verily, did not appreciate the usefulness of cavalry; and ten spots men becoming very scarce, there was great fear of a famine. Now it came to pass when Want was threatening the land, a chief man of the tribe of ’87 called the people together and opened 3 « The Garnet. his mouth and taught them, saying : Lo, men of ’87 ! Verily, verily, I say unto you the plague, pestilence and famine of the want of ten spots is at hand. What shall we do? And there was a great shout, and they all cried with one voice and said : “ Let us go down to Wiencke’s, and play much pool and billiards, and make ourselves happy with much beer.” And straightway they all went to Wiencke’s, who dwells by the railroad, over against the canal, and joy again pre¬ vailed in ’87, because of much beer and billiards. When the night was far spent, Wiencke opened his mouth and spake, saying : “ Heed not the lesson when it is hard.” He so spake to gain the good will of the people. The tribe heard it and perceived that it was good, and shouted as with one voice : “ Long live Wiencke ! Hikah ! Hi kali ! Eighty-Seven ! ! ” Again he spake unto them, saying: “ Who pays for the beer when it is drunk and the billiards when they are played? ” And the tribe of ’87 cried “ Away with him.” And a mighty man rose up and smote him on the cheek with a beer bottle. With one accord they ran each to his horse to ride away. But Wiencke was before them, and straightway levied on all the horses in Union for the debts of ’87 to him. So horses disappeared from the land of Union, and there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth among the young men, and the elders were greatly rejoiced; and peace once more prevails between the elders and the people.

Certainly .not for lack of something to record of ’ 86 . For what subject more fit for eloquence than a class whose merits, undertakings and victories have been proclaimed throughout the land, from Dorp to— Scotia. But I pause from the consciousness of inability to do justice to so great a subject. And as did Milton, when be bowed before Muse and said— “ I thence Invoke thy aid to my adventurous song,” even so do I. Yet, unlike him, Clio leaves me to fate. In this abandonment my eyes wander from the page and rest on the long list of names and dates of victorious events, carved in numerous and fan¬ tastic forms on the table beneath my elbow. In one place I see the words, “Crematio Newcombis,” and the date followed by “’85 N.G.” Here is a memoranda of oui beaver hat parade in “ Wanted, ioodoz. Eggs.” A little farther are the names of some ’87 men, after which, as Sophs, we carved in deep capitals, “O FROSH.” Our Junior ball is immortalized by the accompaniment of “—132.” The Greek alphabet is nearly complete as society affixes. Among the zigzag letters I sec the names of those who have left our ranks, ambitious to achieve success by gaining time, and whose good-will we are conscious we have, and to whom in return ours is given. We look back partly with gladness and partly with regret to those Freshmen dreams, to the boisterous Sophomore celebrations, to our romantic existence as Juniors, but are well content to have laid them aside for the true manliness of Seniors. To us the carvings on the old table are only a more vivid reminder of the events of a happy past — events which are inscribed in our memory even more indelibly than 44 The Garnet. on the pine surface before us ; and hoping that others’ remembrance of us shall be as pleasant and kindly as the remembrance we bear of them, we lay aside the recording pen, thus ending the last history of ’g(3 — a class which has ever been our pride and emulation, a class whose future reputation we hope to be a distinctive honor to its indi¬ vidual members,—another laurel upon the brow of Old Union.

Whereas, It has pleased the all-powerful Faculty, in the great Unknown Quantity of their goodness, to develop the ascending powers of our much- esteemed friend and continual companion, Algebra Newcomb; and Whereas, After six long months of an unbroken continuation of “ flunks ” we have learned to fully appreciate his great progression of character and the radical result of his work in its simplest form ; therefore be it Resolved , That in his sudden elimination we mourn liim to the root of our affections, and in his last transformation we at the same time perceive the highest power of the great Unknown Quantity , and in his early dissolu¬ tion we recognize how suddenly he has been made identical with the radical ashes of Mother Earth. Resolved , That in his death the Class of ’87, Union College, sutler the loss of a near and dear (?) friend and respected classmate, revered for his in -variablepower to “flunk.” Resolved, That we, as a class, sympathize with his Tute (too) true com " panion in his sad affliction. Resolved , That the class wear the customary badge of mourning for thirty days. Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be presented to the Faculty, as a token of our appreciation of the final result of their functions. 0DF. Here’s to thee, Tyrant! for thine hour is come; Thy power is broken, and we bow no more In mute submission to thy stern commands. Well may’st thou tremble, as we trembled once - When first we stood before thy palace gates, And, bidding us to enter, heard the voice Of thy prime minister (an able man); For now we have thee wholly in our power. Look not for mercy, for our hearts are hard— Hard as the lump of steel which some skilled smith, Amid the dim light of his smoky forge, I las tempered till it seems like adamant. Thus thou hast tortured our confiding minds Till trust and love are turned to hatred now! For every wrong that thou hast done to 11s; For every weary hour that we have spent Toiling beneath the tasks imposed by thee; For every zero, and for each disgrace That lacerated cruelly our hearts, We pay thee back an hundred-fold to-night. The Garnet. 79 Thy funeral pyre is ready, and ere long The ruddy flames will leap into the air And in their fiery arms embrace thy form, While every blazing spark that springs aloft Tnto the bosom of the sable night Will haste to carry far and wide the news That we are free and tyranny is dead! O! once proud monarch, but now fallen foe, Who has a better right to hate than we? And hate we will! and fierce our hate shall burn, Until completely it shall have devoured Each scrap and vestige of thy horrid form! O ! scorching flames, still seven times hotter glow! And fill with anguish dire the dying hour Of that fell monster, Newcomb’s Algebra! Let the pale ghosts of those whom he has struck Flit now before his hot and fev’rish brain! Let the last sounds that reach his dulling ears, Amid the lurid flames, tell of the hate— The bitter, deathless hate—of “Eighty-seven!” DIRGF.. Tune.— “ Old Grimes. " Oh, move with measured step and slow, Beneath the midnight sky, And let a tear of deep regret Now fall from every eye. For he is dead, old Algebra; His life at length is o’er; And he no more will “ take the chair,” No more will “ have the floor.” His once familiar face and form We ne’er again shall see; No more, as pass the midnight hours, Our comrade will lie be. We cannot say that he was loved, Nor that he did no wrong; Our anger at his cruelty Is still too deep and strong. He was a tyrant, hard and stern, And yet some time we may, While groaning under sterner lords, Long to be ’neath his sway. So peace to him as he lies dead; His virtues call to mind; For even ’mid Sahara’s wastes Oases you may find. So The Garnet. MAKE-ADO: OR, THE SOPHOMORE’S REVENGE.

Eight wronged Sophs. Four little Juniors gay ! A Freshman. Ruler of the Freshman Banquet. A Representative Senior. Sophs, Freshmen, Small Boys. Scene :—Chapel Steps—S or 10 Sophomores discovered sitting in various postures, smoking cigarettes and pipes and buried in deep conversation. After the curtain is rolled up they all stop, strike attitudes, and sing. Omnes :— If you want to know who we are— We are Sophomores of Union. Freshmen joys we endeavor to mar, Whenever they engage in fun. We forget our own Freshman year, We’re afraid of the upper class’ jeer, To be brave we try to appear. We are gathered in council to-day On a subject of gravest import, Because the Freshmen, as one did betray, At their supper, of us made some sport. We’ll endeavor to think of a cure For our wounded spirits so pure, And render our dignity sure. The Garnet. Si Cardinal :— Gent lemen, I pray you, tell How is it reported in these parts, What said the brazen Frosh ” of us? Impart, I do beseech of you. My brain doth boil with many schemes Wherewith to stop such unheard cheek. Hommediable — Hear most noble Westerner. Thus runs the report ; thus did they speak : [They gather in a group and in annimated low tones Hommediable relates to them. When he has finished. Cardinal strides to the front and speaks in angry tones.] Cardinal : — How ! Said they so ? Then quick to our revenge, mv friends, Should such infernal gall within this place, From Freshmen by the Sophomores be brooked ? No! No! Revenge: About,—Burn,—Slay,—Kill! Canuckus :— Hold, friends, I pray you. Give to me but time to render into words, The thoughts that now do come Into this vacuum, called my brain. Let us not rashly rush to vengeance; Let cool, premeditated plan Be carried in effect, and render us of victory Doubly sure. I have it. hear me : u To me and to my strategy, I pray you, listen patiently.” This night, when all are lost in thought, And through the streets of ancient “ Dorp” The darkness of the night has crept, Made more apparent by the light electric, Let us creep soft, and to the domiciles Of all that in this matter were engaged, Hie. Then will we summon them to judgment, And upon their heads wreak vengeance, Yea, set them up, will question them As we were wont in past first term. Omnes :— We will. We will. Bill i ami s :— O friends, wisely are we counseled, And well have we made choice. But let us all remember our grief, 82 The Garnet. Villa :— And when we have them in our midst Let no hand tremble, no heart with pity move, But let us all take hearts of stone and let A singleness of purpose kindle in us all. “ Now is the winter of our discontent,” Our vengeance on these weaklings will we vent. Hold, gentlemen, before we part To meet again when shades of night have fallen, ’Tis meet that we should, of our number, one select Who shall be chief, and who in this, our dire revenge, Shall lead us on. Omnes :— ’Tis well. We need a head. Hommediable —“Friends, Sophomores, Classmates, Render to me the use of your aural appendages. I stand not here to flatter anyone, but to nominate. We are about to avenge a wrong done to our number; We need a leader in whose valor wc believe, Whose back ne’er gave an enemy a target In the strife, and who ne’er speaks without a guar¬ antee. What more can we require when all Of those virtues which we call to aid, Are contained in a man of six feet, one : The name, ye all know it well, ’Tis Cardinal. Omnes :— Cardinal shall lead. We choose him. [All gather ’round Cardinal and salute in Japanese style. Sing.] Hail! O Cardinal. Hail! O Cardinal. As our leader we defer to you Cardinal :— [Repeat.] Gentlemen, I thank you for this honor, so conferred And I do hope that am I called upon To exercise the duties of my office, I may gather courage sufficient to sustain me. [Sings.] As some day it must happen that a victim must be found— I’ve got a little list—I’ve got a little list, Of men who with impunity, I recklessly may pound. And who never would resist—who never would resist. % THF GARNEi . 83 There’s a meek and lowly Freshman, who is sick most all the time, There’s another who I’m sure will do. because of principle sublime, There are many men among them, ministers in embryo, They’d turn the other cheek, rather than return the blow. And so if on conferring this honor you insist, I get up my little list—of those who’ll not resist. O.mnks :—[Sing]—Yes, on conferring this honor we surely do insist, Parvus : — So get up your little list—of those who’ll not resist. My friends, since we on toughness are intent, Methinks ’twere better had we now A few of those our classmates with us joined, To aid us if resistance we shall find. Cardinal:- What’s he that wishes so ? My noble Parvus ? No ! No ! Fair friend, If we be doomed to deeds of gore, we are enough To battle to the end. And if we conquer, The fewer men the greater share of honor. “By Jove, I am not covetous of gold, But if it be a sin to covet honor,” I am the most offending soul alive. Give me but pledges of your might And I would push, yea, even to the lion’s den. Omnes :— Hear ! Hear ! ! Hear ! ! ! Casca :— Most noble classmates, hear me. The words which just now from our leader we have heard, Are verily,with noble sentiments filled; But I do fear me, lest we trust too much The feelings which the present doth inspire. Let’s rather see our classmates and exhort From them sufficient aid our project to make sure. Omnes :— ’Tis well. Let’s to the work ! Rah—Rah—Rah, etc. [During the cry they go off at the right.] [Enter Freshman singing.] Verdanto :■ — “A modest Freshman I — A youth of budding knowledge. jf 8 4 The Garnet. At customs of the college, I open wide mv eye — Hark ! What noise is that that I do hear ? Methinks it comes from yonder terrace walk. Truly I hear the Sophomore’s cry resound. What now in store have they for us Who for so many moons have now endured The fullness of their spite ? How now ! can they have of our banquet caught a rumor? Can they on deeds of deep revenge be bent ? I fear me it is so. Could I but of their schemes be made aware, I would my best endeavor use to fraught them. But soft—I hear a footstep, some one comes. [Signore enters from R.] Verdanto :—[Saluting.]—Most potent, grave and reverend signor. Behold me here, relate to me, I pray, Have you, whilst traversing vun terrace walk. Encountered in their mad career the Sophomores ? On some deep scheme I’m sure that they are bent. O tell me, pray, in pity my protector be. Signore :— I have. Whilst wending on the even tenor of my way , I passed a herd of wild excited men, I heard them in their anger loudly cry For vengeance ’gainst a wrong to their pure name. But who are you that ask this word of me. Verdanto : — I am but now a lowly Freshman, who has dared. From you, a man of massive brain and weighty mind. Some news and some advice to crave, On matters which at present do with awful might, My inward self make tremble with foreboding. Signore :— Listen then, O ! lowly one; 1 will relate to you— For love towards these Sophomoric pranks 1 do not bear. Young man give ear. As in my walk whilst lost in thought, As I was settling the great questions of the soul And fixing finallv the relations which exist Between the immaterial mind ot man The Garnet. 85 And his material brain, a noise Broke in on mv meditation, harshly, I looked, and lo ! a motly crowd did pass, They all did with their different counsels speak, But from their various words, I gained The knowledge which I will impart to you; Thus said they, thus they all agreed : “To-night, when the hand of time doth point to eight. Will we proceed on earnest errand bent To where the ‘ Frosh ’ called Bacchus does dwell, Then will we on him take revenge.” Thus spoke they, And I wended on until I came to thee. Verdanto :— O noble one, how good it is of you; To give to me, trembling Freshman, in the time of need, This aid. Signore :— Don’t mention it. Tho’ all my time I fain would spend in tracing all That in this world of ours does have a place, Back to its primordial, pre-adamitic origin. Still have I room within the inmost recess of my heart, For philanthropic, humane feelings. Adieu, be brave and you will one day be like me. [Exit.] Verdanto :— O how my thoughts do mingle and again Do start in tangential directions from the point; It seems to me as though this seat of reason Would from its firm base remove and make me, In my brain at least, the peer of Sophomores; But I must on where duty calls. [Exit.] [End of Act I.] 86 7 ' he Garnet. ACT II. Scene: —A street. In the back ground, is seen the House of Bacchus; around the gate and fence which stand in front of it, a group of Freshmen conversing. In the foreground four Juniors standing in a row, a la three little maids from school. Juniors [sing] : Four sage College Juniors we, Out to-night the fun to see, We look on with heartfelt glee, , Four little Junior’s gay ! Always around when there is fun, Always see the square thing done. Allow no bullying of any one, Four little Juniors gay 1 Four little Juniors very merry Come from toil our cares to bury, For the last of the fun we’ll tarry, Four little Juniors gay ! [Enter crowd of Sophomores carrying canes.] Freshmen Omnes :—Revenge, Revenge, we will have blood. Cardinal [speaking to Freshman] : Come hither, “Frosh,” we have with thee some business. Come ! hear you not my voice? I do command you come ! Freshmen [all] : Who are you, who would be our commander ? Cardinal :— We have a reason for our being here, We would with Bacchus, who is of your number,, speak. Is he among you now ? Let him stand forth. Bacchus :— I’m here. What will you now with me ? Cardinal :— It has been to us reported of you, That at your banquet it did please you To make sport of us, your betters. We now come to ask of you the why And wherefore of such conduct. The Garnet. 37 Bacchus :— For deeds done at our banquet I do hold myself responsible to no one, Save to those who placed me in the office Which I did then retain. If all my deeds when occupying office, Do, to those who gave me office, seem correct, My duty I consider done, and make excuses To no one else for them. Cardinal :— What ! darest thou to such as we, In such insolent words reply ? Then come, for we will wreak on thee The latent feelings which we’ve kept so long. Stand forth ! Freshmen Omnes :—No ! No ! Go not, O Bacchus, we support thee. Cardinal :— What ! darest resist. Beware ! Comrades prepare to carry all Who dare resist, before us. [The Sophs rush on the Freshmen with upraised canes; the four Juniors run and place themselves between the Freshmen.] Juniors :— Hold !!!!!! [Sophomores start amazed and fall back.] Juniors :— What are you ? Are you men, Who thus would rush on these defenceless Frosh? Shame ! Shame !! Where is your manliness? Come, drop your canes, and then if you it please, Go in, and take revenge, as man to man. Come, now to us deliver up your arms. [Four or five Sophomores place their canes on the ground before the Juniors and edge off the stage. The others stand in consultation.] Cardinal [to Sophs.]—Foiled ! Foiled ! ! Foiled !!! Again have we an injury received Parvus :— From this class which we all do hate, Again have we been humbled by the men Who taught us what it was to be a Soph. O had we but learned the lesson well, We would not now be standing here. Methinks ’twere better to depart; Our presence here is to no purpose. 88 The Garnet. Canuckus :— The noble youth has rightly spoken, But how without a squeal to do the deed, Is now the subject for debate. Cardinal :— Leave to me the duty. I’ve struck the method. [To Freshmen.] O Frosh ! we just have council held among ourselves, And it does seem good to us to let this matter drop. Your leader has by a well-made defence spoken, And we the apology do accept. And with the warning, that in future you beware IIow you do raise our ire, We depart. [Exeunt scowling at the Juniors.] [Juniors and Freshmen laugh loudly.] Air [singing] :— The Sophomores came on with a shout, Tra la, Their plans were they thought all right. But one item they’d wholly left out, Tra la, That the Juniors might then be about, Trq la And put a new phase on the fight. And the very first word that the Juniors did speak, Changed ther minds, and they failed altogether their vengeance to wreak. Tra la la, c. [Sophomores re-enter (scowling) and march to the front of stage, and sing.] The Juniors that were on the ground, Tra la, Had nothing to do with the case, When the reasons from Bacchus we’d found, Tra la, And saw that his logic was sound, Tra la. Their faults did our reason erase. And that is the reason we stopped when he spoke, And let the whole matter be dropped as a joke. [They affect to laugh, singing.] Tra la, la, etc. The Garjnjlt. 89 Mosel s :— O Sophomores, you have sung, just now, What seems to me a reason given for a deed Which in itself is most peculiar, But if’tis so. If your infinitesimal brain Can grasp an argument, however loose the logic, We are content to let the matter drop, And to ourselves no honor take For your miscarried plans. [Juniors all sing.] For a Junior can never be vain, Vain,—vain ! That fault don’t appear ’Till the full Senior year, So of us y011 can’t surely complain, Plain,—plain ! Of our conduct in this piece of fun. But. you Sophomores had better be dumb, Dumb—dumb ! Of this matter be wary, Of boasting be chary, Or we’ll cause you to wholly succumb, Cumb—cumb ! But otherwise we will be mum. Cardinal :— We will be dumb; our anger is appeased ; And though the Freshmen have escaped, And Justice is again from her right path Turned by the hands of those who in the class above us We have seen repeatedly cause this deed, We swear the matter never to divulge. Bacchus :— Since such does seem to you aright, And since you speak in gentle tones, I now do heartily, in all that I have done, Hope nothing hath ofiended you; If something has, I pray you pass it by And lightly let it rest, as though ’twere never said. Moseus: — Bravo—well said; and this thing done, Let us to Morpheus ourselves pledge, And loose our sorrows in his mighty wave.

That we’re only beginners amid toil and fuss ! O! Sophomore, dear Sophomore, dear Sophomore. When we come at the last to our Freshman third term. Our knowledge will be gained, and our principles firm. Of men like yourselves we’ll no doubt be the germ, O! Sophomore, dear Sophomore, dear Sophomore. [All join hands and sing.] The threatened cloud has passed away, And soon will shine the dawning day; What though the day will come too soon, We’ll take a nap in th’ afternoon ! Then let the throng Our joy advance, With laughing song And merry dance, With joyous shout and ringing cheer, Inaugurate our new career. [They fall into each others embrace.] [The curtain falls while all sing “It’s a way we have at old Union. I SA W HER SMILE . A.GND12AU I saw her smile. ’Twas long ago— One Christmas, ’neath the mistletoe, And so I took, with all in sight, The kiss to which I had a right. She thought I did’nt dare, I know. One day I plead my case; and though She answered neither yes nor no, Yet, looking in her face so bright, I saw her smile. + How quickly fell the cruel blow That left me nought but bitter woe.— I saw her in my dream last night, A radiant vision all in white— She saw me—lonely, sad—and lo ! I saw her smile. F. S. R The Garnet. 9 1 UNION’S PRESIDENTS. Rev. John Blair Smith, D. I). Born at Pequa, Pa., June 12th, 1756.

Students’ Songs contains 60 copyrighted songs with full music, comprising the newest and most popular of the jolly songs as sung at all of the American Colleges. C TUDENTS’ SONGS are popular everywhere. They have a breeziness and brightness thoroughly their own ; and they typify the pleasantest characteristics of college life — a life which interests thousands who have never enjoyed its peculiar pleasures, as well as affording happy memories in such abundance to all who have been fortunate enough to attain its privileges. The newest edition of ‘Students’ Songs,’ compiled and edited by Mr. William II. Hills, Harvard, iSSo, and published by Mr. Moses King of Cambridge, is altogether the best of a book that attained at once deserved popularity. The very newest songs of the time—those which the college boys delight to sing to-day in society and class gatherings — are given, with piano accompaniment: and it is difficult to see how Mr. Hill’s admirable collection could in any way be improved. What gives special value to the book is, that most of the songs are new in print, and, being copy¬ righted, can be found in no other collection. It is hard to understand how so dainty a book with its array of sixty-two capital songs, can be offered for sale at t he price (50 cents) which is asked .”—Boston Daily Globe.
