f' W x 1 N the days of ancient Italy, at the feast of the Satur-
T ' y nalia, it was the custom for the children to whip and
chide the senators and masters in the streetsg that
privilege is assumed by us now, and if any one has
been whipped too hard, or does not receive his share in the spirit
of fun, 'let him wait till the feast is over to vent his discontent. The feast will be
over in june.
THE LUCKY BAG is so named from the fact that it is a rule, aboard ship, for the
Master-at-Arms to collect all loose scraps of clothing and lost articles about the decks,
and put them in a bag, which is called " The Lucky Bag." At the end of each month
these are served out to the owners. We are now distributing the scraps that have col-
lected in the last year.
This book is compiled annually by the First Class, on account of a fallacious
tradition at this institution that the First Class-man has less work to do than the member
of any other class. When one considers the conditions under which the time devoted
to this publication is found, it makes him wonder that the book ever reached print. A
special dispensation-an innovation in the rules of the Naval Academy-has been made
for the Editors of THE LUCKY BAG: they have been permitted to sit up from ten till
eleven o'clock, twice a week, to accomplish their task.
Before throwing all the blame on our own shoulders, the Editors wish to express
gratitude to those who have aided them in their work, to those fair ones whose deft
fingers and apt wits have added to our pages 5 to those members of this little class who
have so willingly permitted the incoherencies of their wandering minds to be used, and
to all those who have lived in such scenes as to be worthy of report.
The one great drawback to the work has been that, about the time we have settled
down in our chair, stopped the leak in the gas, said "good-night" to the Officer-im
Charge, found a place for all our feet on the one small table, and somcbcdy has really
got his brain trolleyed on the track of an idea, the fond gyrene breaks madly in at the
door, and whispers in corrugated tones, " Timels Up!" But such as we have managed
to jot down in those short hours, we now present to you, this is not intended for an

The History of the Class of '98.
IIICRE are a great ,many things that I might write about in this class his-
W 7 f-7-,X tory, but we will draw a few curtains over some of the less important
Ill il'l'fll V scenes. It is, I suppose, unnecessary to tell you that the prime object of
l llM.iQ ,, i ' a cadet's life is to enjoy himself, see the world, and read poetry. These
l . aims are thoughtfully provided for by the curriculum and the regulations,
I, ' D' by the situation of the school in this busy metropolis, by the three months
, 'l H i q 'I a year spent at sea in a wooden ship, by the high Naval Academy fence,
I W x ,ft the conduct report, and the unlimited time he has for thinking about the
1 ' . .
I ,la good things of life.
I X fi I The cadet has a little dabbling of studies to dally with occasionally,
'AM-'Q but we all know that too much pleasure ruins the nervous system. You
'jggfgisr must remember that cadets come to Annapolis mere infants, and too
much innocent amusement cannot be given them , they are permitted to
go out and look at beautiful Annapolis once a month, if they are good-
to ride out to the parks on the street-car, or go to the operas. fCadets are not allowed
to engage season boxes at the operaj
Four years ago-twelve months to the year being allowed, according to the calcula-
tions of the Bellman-the class of Ninety-Eight came under the protecting wing of the
Navy. I-Iow well I remember the wet, dreary day that we passed our last exam., and
came into the gates for the last time, what lucky dogs we thought ourselves, but how
soon that illusion was dispelled!
Plebedom, with all its pleasures, came upon us in the most fetching way. We soon
learned many things about modern warfare, such as making beds, splicing rope, and wear-
ing rain clothes. It was then that we made the acquaintance, in a roundabout way, of
Savvy and Dutchy. I say "in a roundabout way", but at that time an acquaintance
sprang up that has largely iniiuenced the subsequent existence of every cadet in the class.
Little did we think how often, afterward, we should be reminded of that acquaintance,
but we know better now, we have lived some years since then, a few gray hairs are
added to the IVIajor's head and to McIntyre's eyebrow.
As plebes, we were shy, we didnlt go to the theatres much, nor dress in the height
of fashion, we didn't even go to the hops, which, of course, are among the minor social
,,. .,, ., .
Night Owls nearly came
functions that a cadet has thrust upon him. This evident unconcern created much com-
ment at the time, but the reason for our actions is known'to the youngsters of that day.
It was but the work of something like eight months to slip through that blithesome
sport and blossom forth as youngsters ourselves.
As the' cadet made a plebe, so inversely he made a youngster, for a good plebe is a
bad youngster the world over, and a bad youngster is the most cloying of all evils. This
year was spent in the usual wicked and thoughtless way that cadets succeed in acting,
the discipline began its gain rapidly on us, so that a man who had, during plebe year
smoked and Frenched and made merry with wine and spirits, now considered himself
positively devilish if he whistled during '
study hours. u I i ,
But some of the worst, whom this f l i l i 'N
sort of discipline made even more wicked , QQKX 1' , O ' "" in
than before, presumed so far as to have E x?er ,xg KX
milk punch at midnight on the Cadet-in TJ' l W I

to an untimely end. We will leave them here, however, and continue with the p1'ocession.
During this year the Night Study Party was invented, and the idea was so attractive
that it became an institution that will never go outof the minds of some of our luckicr
members. This Party is for the purpose of literary advancement, in order that cadets
will not feel backward about speaking of popular books, such as G2rl!z'wr'.s' D-fzwly
and G1'z'11zf1z'.r Ifhzkjf Ylzlvs, when they go out in society.
If the kind reader will permit me I will here digress a little, to say that society is
one of the most trying evils of our life here, cadets will spoon, and go calling, and all
such nonsense. But this evil is almost remedied now by having drills at every recreation
hour, and prohibiting cadets going anywhere in the yard where a lady might go.
Among the principal features of youngster year the Drawing Department has a big
lead. It grieves me to confess it, but we didn't cut any very large morsels of ice in that
department. With tears I remember our introduction into it. Colvo had looked us all
over, shown us how to let our desks slide down, explained in detail how every instru-
ment should be used, warned us against the thoughtless practice of leaving our Compasses
out in the snow, and had concluded in the most touching tones with the words " If
handled with care they will last a lifetime." At that moment Cy Thorpe dropped his
desk with a bang, and let his drawing-box go helter-skelter down two iiights of stairs.
But let us draw a few curtains over this scene.
Youngsterdom finally came to an end, as all youngsterdoms usually do, in the Ann.,
though some of ours ended at the Semi-Ann. But this is no time for tears. We then
began our long-expected Second-Class summer. I cannot describe the bliss of living at
Old Quarters during the summer, with little work to do, no studies, spooning and golf
at the farm, picnics, boating, sailing, skyrockets and firecrackers, beer and watermelons.
No, I can't describe it-for the principal reason that we were not there. We were safely
ensconced aboard the good ship " lVlonongahela," far from the madding crowd-three
months of heaven
Guileless reader, did you ever take an altitude? Did you ever get up from your
impromptu breakfast of salt horse and sea-water cocoa, and take an altitude? If you
have never done this, have never picked the mean right ascension of the moon out of the
apparent sun column for the next week, if you have never waited for the navigator to
announce his noon position, so that you may cook up your sight to fit the case, truly,
shepherd, thou art eternally damned. But all this came to an end finally, and we
had one short month in which to live. We lived fast lives during that month, to
catch up with the time lost in the two years past, but, at last, we came back and buckled
on our Oehm's blouses again.
If you have never come back from real life, on the last train, reported to the Officer
in Charge, Commandant, and the Assistant Master-at-Arms, and wandered into your
new room, piled up with beds, wardrobes, blankets, trunks, mattresses, boxes, books,
washstands, clothing, lamp-shades, chairs, overcoats, valises, and your unhappy room-
mate, have never sat down in your cit's clothes and sworn gently in silent despair, and
hopelessly endeavored to calm down the az ' affairs, to buy your books and other
unnecessaries, to stow your clothes, to find ye, . .... c "is, and study the lessons for the
next day, you have missed one of the most touching phases of existence.
" Skip all that," you may say, and I agree with you. We were steered up against
Second Class year in the most unkind and heartless manner. First, there was Steam and
Leo: then Skinny and Tau, and finally, Math and jack, besides other ladies. But we
lived in Old Quarters in those days, and nobody worried our supreme pleasure. Evening
smokers and general gayeties were in order, and fortune smiled upon us for a long time.
which carried off

The days passed by as in a sweet
dream, and, at last, June week came.
I might enlarge upon the improper
and highly disgraceful conduct that
characterized that week. But you
might not believe me,innocent reader,
if I told you how wicked we became
in those last few days. But we went
to the june ball, and to the ship next
day, in the most charming manner.
I hope you have never had the
experience ofturning in at four in the
morning, after a june ball and general
festivities afterward, and risen at six,

They quailed the hearts of some of us, and quailed the marks at the same time, so
that three of our noble number were unsat. at the Semi-Ann. Of course, they will be
safe in the end, but we feel so sorry for the poor creature that lost his mind when he
heard of his fate.
Since becoming First Class men, we have learned many things, among others, table
manners. We feel so indebted to the kind officer in charge who wastes so much of his
valuable time giving us lectures on how to appear rm fait at the table. You must know
that this branch of our training has been sadly neglected till now, but we think that by
the time we graduate we won't drink out of our soup plates, and, even now, there is
none of us that ever eats julie? with a spoon.
It has been a custom, heretofore, at the Academy to have a public burial of the life-
less bodies of Math. and Skinny after the Semi-Ann., for, at that time, these ungainly
creatures, who have followed us through three and one-half years with faithfulness untiring,
are supposed to be dead. They may have died this year as they are said to have died
before, but they were immediately reincarnated in full force in the Departmentslof Ord-
nance, Navigation, and Steam, so that, out of respect for these departments, we omitted
that joyous event.
After the Semi-Ann., we ran into the English Department again-our high speed,
non-return, great unwashed English department-the benefits of which we felt before we
left high school. We are now learning how to make our letters and say our A, B, Cls.
But the department in which we have shone this year is that of seamanship. This
department has already blossomed forth in seventeen pamphlets, numerous drawings,
blue prints, plates, and smoking privileges, beside some verbose extemporaneous works,
so extemporaneous in some places that it would make Billy Fay run his hands through
his hair and cuss. If you have never experienced the feeling of reading page after page
of matter without having any idea conveyed to your brain, read Nawz! Colzstafuctzbfz
Notes by the Seamanship Department.
But let us talk of something cheerful. There are not many days more, as the days
grow longer, the time grows shorter-a seeming paradox. We are now waiting with
anxious hearts for the day when we go to dress parade for the last time, when we march
up to the band stand, seize our diplomas in both hands and yell, when we can stroll
outside thepgate, light a cigar, and throw the match back inside.
History of the Engineer Corps.
kd 0 . . ' .
1' . N the morning of june 4th, amid a crowd of cheering spec-
: tators, and before an assemblage of august personages,
fig?-4,1 there came into existence the Engineer Corps of the
Class of '98, and those who constituted it were indeed
f proud, and cheered time and again.
A 1 The following day we embarked on the U. S. S.
, 'wx kv lg? "Standish" for the summer's cruise. Knowing her
Q to be but a tug, we expected little in the way of
ff M' comfortable quarters, and upon finding her fitted up
I j fi if 1 inside like a yacht, were doubly surprised and eager
I D I I to embark.
, . .... The last tragic sight that blessed our vision
f f J 3 before casting loose from the dock to hide ourselves
'HY' " "" "l"' ""'t t behind the dingy " Monongahelan was a lovely maiden
on the dock, Zeke on one side and Brownie on the
- other, each dewberrying on the other. Later, we
started down the bay, the "lVlonongahela" in tow.
The watches were long and lonely, five hours from breakfast till dinner, five hours from
dinner till supper, and an age from supper till breakfast. But each spent the time as
best suited him, jake immediately proceeded to take a time sight with a Crosby indi-
cator, Ikey cried, " I-lullup, fellows, lemme oil the stern gland," and the Piute
complacently slept. We towed till the night of june 9th, when we left the " Mononga-
hela " about fifty miles at sea, and made the best of our way back to Newport News.
It was then that the work began, ashore each morning to take notes, and on board
each afternoon to write them up. We visited the ship-yard, and paid a visit to the
" New York" and one to the "Texas," We had occasional glimpses of their engines
and made minute examinations of their steerages. Here we received our first written
orders, just befo1'e going on liberty one Saturday afternoon. They were to the effect that
when on shore we should not drink water, milk, or lemonade. Henry interpreted them
to mean that we should drink orange cider, called for in a very loud, high-pitched voice,
and so brought disgrace on the rest of us, who were trying to pose as tough old salts.
r snnimunoo, W H l
From Newport News we went to Chester. Having liberty, we took precautions against
further disgrace by speaking French exclusively, very much to the surprise of the
natives, and often ourselves as well, especially on such occasions as when the Major
should ask, " Qu'est-ce-que vous avez fr bouvoir?" Nevertheless the manager of the
" Tuxedo Athletic Club " was kind enough to invite us to an exhibition on the quiet, in
which boxing ,was to be an especial feature. An invitation of a different kind, but one
more appreciated by us, was one from the
Alpha Boat Club, extending to us the privi-
leges of the club. From Chester we went
on up to the League Island Navy Yard,
and thence to Philadelphia. ,M
While at League Island jake became , ,,fl
very much interested in the wigwag signal ,N ff-
code, he boned it assiduously, and used to X 1 M 5
spend hours in the very hottest part of the
day, sending messages to the " Richmond."
We learned later, when we went on board I
the "Richmond" to a candy party that
some one on her, too, was just learning
the signal code.
At Philadelphia we worked hard, and
were rewarded by having much liberty-
The first Sunday spent here Sandy and
Jake went to church, and they have never
ceased talking of it, declaring that they

Our excursion to the Bethlehem Iron 6 , ,egg-?4
Works was one long to be remembered, 1+ r -A-'
especially the dinner and other refresh-
ments, and more especially the other refreshments. Having liberty on July 3d, 4th, and
5th, we almost ran wild during that time. Guy and Ikey went on three days' leave.
Mate became enamored with a certain stage fairy, and spent most of his time and money
on boxes, etc. The rest of us scattered about, some going to Narberth, some to Frank-
ford, but always' assembling at a certain inn of German repute, where some spent all their
time. From Philadelphia we went to New Castle, where we were threatened with a new
captain, nervous prostration followed, and we were obliged to remain there some days
in consequence. The absolute quiet of the place no doubt restored us.
During the run to New York all of us except Sandy had our first taste of sea-
sickness. Qlt was Sandy's third tastej It was very bitter, even Helen, the dog, was sick.
It was only when we were safely tied up in New York at the Navy Yard that we felt
fully at ease once more. But the ease lasted only a short while, for we found more work
than we knew what to do with. Johnnie often missed his afternoon nap, and lost his
appetite in consequence, and Ikey went into training. Every day it did not rain we had
liberty, but most of the days we had liberty it rained. It rained so much that, our tug
not being seaworthy, we were finally obliged to leave New York. So, very early one
cloudy morning August E . law,-as . '

a few days later very much Q gg g Wi
enriched by our visit. It jf'Q,:3j'QfQi:-'
was about this time that
Judy's concoctions began to be in demand, every one praising their excellent qualities,
except the Major, who " did not care much for vanilla."
At Bath, where we went from Boston, our stay was short and sweet, but more espe-
cially short. We were afraid to stay long, because of certain peculiar laws of the State,
which conliicted with our orders and endangered our health. From Bath we went to Port-
land, to remain over Sunday. When we reached Portland we found an excursion to the
White Mountains arranged for that day. So bright and early Sunday morning all
hands and the captain abandoned ship and started for the White Mountains. The trip
consumed the entire day and was delightful, to say the least. The Piute, who was ever
an admirer of beauty, and so, of course, accompanied the expedition, would fain have
basked in the smiles of a certain fair tourist, but she, having an eye for the beautiful,
too, remained gazing out of the car window during most of the trip.
The following day we left Portland, and set our course toward home. And a week
later, having made short stays at Portsmouth and New York, we came once more in
sight of Capes Charles and Henry, and shortly afterward came up with the " Mononga-
hela," which was anchored just inside. Of course we were all very much touched at
seeing our classmates once more, especially as regarded our cigarettes, there being
a famine of these things on board their ship. The following week we spent in doing
tug duty between the " Monongahela" and Annapolis. And then having towed the
" Monongahela " into port, we tied up to the " Santee " dock for the last time.
Then orders came for us to move on board the " Santee," and thus the cruise of the
" Standish " was brought to an unexpected end. We were all very much grieved, and
vexed as well, and indulged in certain harsh words, all except Henri, who would have,
but refrained. The week spent on the " Santee " was by no means an unpleasant one,
nothing to do but seek amusement, which we usually found. And when at last that
long-wished-for day arrived, the day we packed our trunks and went on leave, it was not
without some feelings of sadness that we realized that the sunnner's cruise was over.

The Cruise of the "Robert Centre."
H li first glimmering of this cruise came to us at the end of youngster year,
when we hoped for six weeks' leave, and we decided to give up two weeks
of our time to the pleasurable, free and easy navigation of our trim cutter.
This first glimmering of the cruise, together with the six weeks' leave,
came to nought.
So much for antecedents. Toward the end of Second Class year, juggy got the
gang together and then obtained the Superintenclent's permission to make a cruise in the
flash packet during the first part of September. During the " Monongahelau cruise,
whether in Funehal or in the middle of the heaving Atlantic, the thoughts of the gang
turned instinctively to the happier times to come.
Arrived in the Chesapeake, juggy and Kid got the plans up and submitted them to
the Superintendent. This august personage showed his benevolence by giving us five
whole round simoleons to blow in, together with a bountiful supply of canned soup and
Our other supplies, some of which came from Madeira, need not be mentioned. On
Sunday, August 29th, we mustered aft: Nelson, commanding g Evans, executive officer,
Smith, navigator g Watts, loaferg Sweet and Tardy, seamen.
VVC fanned out to Annapolis Roads and waited for a breeze, which came. That
night was thick and murky, and we were all seasick, even unto Bill, " the tank cleaner."
The passage down was uneventful, and although " my son Philip tried for three weeks
and never got below the Patuxent," we dropped our mud-hook under the lee of the
Chamberlain Hotel at nine o,clock on Tuesday morning.
What we did at Old Point was a plenty. Two dinners aboard, swimming by juggy,
boat drill by Watts, and other things fm' Zllyfllllflllll.
We wish to thank the officers of Fort Monroe for the many courtesies they extended
to us, and hope some day to pay them back in their own coin. Y
After spending a week at Old Point we hauled up our mud-hook, and with a fair ebb
tide stood out.
Three days later, at two o'clock in the morning, we picked up our moorings off the
Naval Academy, and sent joe ashore to beg us a loaf, for we were out of money and out
of grub. Later in the day we turned the yacht over to the Superintendent and went home.
Thus ended what was untprestionably the best all-round time that ever happened to
any lot of young fellows. '
While on this subject we wish to offer to the donor of the "Robert Centre " our
heartfelt thanks for the trim little craft which will, we trust, grace the waters of the Severn
with its most welcome presence for many years to come.

The History of the Class of 1901.
N the spring of 1897 a small band gathered at the ancient capital of Mary-
land, where many similar bands had gathered in Rirmer years. Its members

A -ff ' , , . . , .V . .
but all were united in the determination to ' b1ff" the entrance examinations
for the U. S. Naval.Academy--for, in fact, they were candidates.
How far they succeeded, or how Har they failed in their object, does not concern this
story, but let it sufhce that in the latter part of May " the litte-st" entered upon their
respective naval careers aboard the U. S. P. S. " Santee."
Many were the dreams that were shattered and many the fond hopes and expecta-
tions that were dashed to the ground. The aspirant to naval honors who had fondly
pictured himself arrayed in a natty blue uniform with shining brass buttons, the greater
number of which he had, no doubt, already promised to the girls he left behind him,
gloomily surveyed himself in his ill-smelling " working clothes " of duck,the very name
of which produces a disagreeable sensation, and thought of the happy days that were
passed, Where peaceful slumbers were not rudely disturbed at some unearthly hour in the
morning by the discordant notes of a bugle, and the burden of military discipline was
But this is the experience that has come to many of our predecessors, and will come
to many of those who follow in our footsteps, so let us not kick against the Fates. We
are here to stay for some time at least, unless we are bilged on the Ann.
The summer months passed quietly, with the monotony varied at times by such
little pleasures as Fourth of July celebrations, which did not always turn out very satis-
factorily to the participants, still, it shows that we are a patriotic class, who think the
nation's birth should be celebrated with a little more noise than is permitted by the
powers that be.
The month of September soon arrived, and with it the Sep. plebe, the humble object
of the May plebe's rate and wrath. For three long weeks the lVlay plebe was monarch
of all he surveyed, and took particular pains to impress that fact upon his September
classmate, until, with the moving into quarters and the return of the upper classmen on
the first of October, he fell suddenly and hnrever from his high estate.
The months that followed were surely of the kind that try men's souls, or rather
plebe's souls The mighty and unapproachable youngsters impressed our entire lack of
rate upon us with painful frequency, Math 1 nglrsh, and French were hurled at us un-
ceasrngly, and monthly examinations got rn their awful work. One poor plebe, sadly
contemplating hrs I 5 final rn Math , was heard to exclaim: "This reminds me of the
years I spent at school, its so different But nevertheless, we are a savvy class, for
when we had emerged from the semi annual examrnatrons and had caught our respective
breaths, we looked around and saw that only fifteen had succumbed to the weeding-out
The second term brought some relief to those who had been toiling in the mazes of
Math by the suppression of Saturday mornrng recitations in that branch. Friday
nrght socretres for the advancement of lrterary tastes-of the Black Cat variety-were
formed and we began to feel more at home rn our surroundings. It is needless to speak
of all the charming damsels we drdn t spoon wrth, and all the lovely times we didn't have
at the hops for rt rs understood that the plcbe s socral light burns dimly.
But there ll come a time some day, as the oracle says, when things will be changed 5
when the down trodden and gurleless plebe wrll develop into the lordly youngster, will
saunter unconcernedly through Love Lane, 'ind grace the hops and other social functions
wrth hrs presence These, then, 'ne our fond hopes and the flight of time goes on 5 so
that, ere long they will be hopes no more but stern realities.

Athletics at the Naval Academy.
,AW ROM time immemorial it has been the acknowledged duty of young men to
endeavor to promote the athletic development of country and Alma JWn!w'.
.,,mf'q1y At the present time the " meets" of our different colleges resemble, to a
ll great degree, the Olympic, Pythian, Isthmean, and Nemean games ofthe
l: .--Ta f
itil' T?. I
Greeks, and to a less degree the gladiatorial exhibitions of the Romans.
We resemble the Greeks in our sprints, long runs, and relay races, and also
in the field sports of shot and hammer. Our resemblance to the Romans
may be seen in the foot-ball and other games which are, to some extent,
demonstrative of the wish of one set of people to show their muscular
superiority over the people of another set.
Athletic development in America was retarded in the early days
because the young men were forced to direct their endeavors to felling
trees, plowing fields, and shooting game. Soon, however, our colleges
1' began to have their sports and games, first alone and then with each other.
if if '
AL . -

'gfff -' . -
This gradually spread until it was a well recognized fact that American
colleges had athletics.
After the country was well organized it was decided, in 1845, to begin a Naval
Academy. The Naval Academy was founded without act of Congress or any other official
proceeding, like Topsy, it just grew. From time to time the Academy was enlarged,
until the midshipmen found themselves comfortably settled in habitable houses. This
being tl1e case, they instinctively looked for amusement, and, like true North Americans,
turned to athletics.
At first the Naval Academy athletics were rather puny, but with time they assumed
quite large proportions. The midshipmen instinctively turned to the water, and it was
upon the water that the Naval Academy won its first recognition. The Naval Academy
crew, soon after " the late unpleasantnessf' began to take part in the different meets or
regattas in this country, and it was found that the midshipmen were no slouchy oarsmen.
In 1867 the Academy won its greatest laurels, when it came off champion of the regatta
of the Schuylkill Navy. This indeed gave a great impetus to athletics here, and
especially to rowing. All this time the midshipmen had been giving their attention to the
other current sports as well, so that the Naval Academy was, so to speak, strictly in it.
After 1867, even though the midshipmen felt elated, the athletic stocks at
Annapolis went down, and the market seemed to be entirely in the hands of the bears
the bulls being unable to do anything toward making a stand. Things went on in this
state for several years, the cadets, as they now came to be called, not mixing much with
other colleges in their athletics.
About twelve or fourteen years ago athletics took a new start, and the cadets began
to play base-ball and foot-ball with outside teams, but all without training or trainers
The crew was now a thing of the past, and a Naval Academy crew did not exist.
For several years athletics were on the mend, and things began to look more
hopeful. Then it was decided to have a bona fide foot-ball team. Consequently men
went out and pretended to practice signals, and even to have outside games with
respectable colleges. This unruly and undisciplined foot-ball team for several years
represented the Naval Academy, and, it must be added, got several good thrashings
from the visiting teams. '
At last, one day, a handsome, broad-shouldered, lithe young man came to the
Naval Academy and took up his duties as assistant instructor in the Department of
Physics. This young man, though young in years, was learned in athletics, and he is
now known as the father of foot-ball at the Naval Academy. This is Paul J. Dashiell
Ph. D. Doctor Dashiell, with the vim of the enthusiastic athlete, jumped into the
middle of our games and, taking out all the rotten parts, left the firm base on which we
have built up our athletics. Thus foot-ball began, and it is evident to the most casual
observer that we are among the first-class teams of the country.
The crew received its new impetus five years ago and has kept up until the present
time. Not only kept up, but advanced, until last year we put ourselves in the front
rank in rowing by the defeat of the Pennsylvania 'Varsity Eight. Our equipment for
rowing has increased from a corner in a lumber shed to two large boat-houses, from no
boat at all to one of the finest in the country, from an old rattle-trap four to six beau
tiful eights. We are now in a position to meet all comers, and, with Dick Armstrong
We must not forget, while on the subject of rowing, to remember that to Captain Cooper
is due the credit of having reincarnated the spirit of rowing here.
Strange to say, our base-ball team has never amounted to much, and, indeed, last
year it almost came to an untimely end. This year we hoped for much, but as we have
not a man who can throw the ball across the street, we again have to let America's game
With foot-ball, rowing, and base-ball, our field and track athletics have come on
apace. We hold several records and hope to hold more, but who can tell what the
future has in store for us. By doing good, honest, hard work, we will never go back
ward. Therefore, let us keep up our nerve and go at it, gaining the topmost rung in
the ladder of athletic fame, and, like General Grant, " Fight it out on this line if it takes
to coach us, it will be strange indeed if we do not make a good showing this season. 'T'

The Foot-ball Team.
,A -N UR season was a success. We won seven games in eight
, Li, ,Q , played. The ball was carried across our goal line by but one
T " team--Princeton. We are champions of the South.
Our training began with the outdoor drills in March, from
3 ,i which time a squad of backs practiced kicking and handling
il k P the ball after drill each afternoon until June.
I . l is - On the cruise blackboard talks, held on the half-deck on
i ,i iiii ll ' ,1 Saturday and Sunday afternoons, with calisthenics on deck
Q 51 J pf' after a light supper each evening, followed by a salt-water
it T ' Z7 douche fearned by a quarter-hour's work at the bilge pumpsj,
-I On September 27tl1 twenty of the squad presented them-
selves for the first day's practice of the season, thus sacrificing
the sweetest portion of their leave, and manifesting a spirit of self-denial and devotion to
the sport that has characterized their work during the entire season, and to which, more
than anything else, whatever success we may have achieved is due.
Our first game was with Princeton, and, though beaten, we had the satisfaction of
making the Tiger work as he did in very few of his other games of the season. The
succeeding games-with the Pennsylvania and Princeton Reserves and Pennsylvania State
College-were intended to develop the team for the game with Virginia, she having
defeated us in 1893. Consequently in these games we were content to win, and sought
to develop the team consistently rather than to pile up big scores. Rutgers forfeited her
game. The game with the University of Virginia, upon the result of which depended
the championship of the South, was won rather more easily than was expected. Our
annual game with Lehigh was an easy victory, although we played with five substitutes,
three of whom were backs. The game with the North Atlantic Squadron, on Thanks-
giving morning, was, perhaps, the most interesting of the season. Although during the
first half our line was torn as it had been by no other team, we scored twice and shut
The season's work was marked by an almost impenetrable defense, developed by the
superiority of our "Hustler" backs. Too much cannot be said of the work of our
Q My 3 kept us in trim.
Y ,, .ul-
noble army ot " Hustlersf' They showed a grit and determination and excellence of
play that would reflect credit on any 'varsity team of this land. Their game with the
Cornell scrubs was a magnificent victory, and furnished one of the most gratifying
features of the season. No college in this country has a second eleven that can compare
in spirit with our " Hustlersf' and as long as they retain their present standard of excel-
lence we need never fear for the success of the Academy eleven.
The team owes much to its right half-back, whose work as player and as adviser
was invaluable. As to our coach, " Dick Armstrong," it would be useless to try to tell
imation of him in this short article. His methods are so consistent,
so effective, and his hold on us so strong, that our only regret is that we are not assured
of his assistance during all the seasons to come.
The management for the season was of the best, and to our manager we owe our
thanks for his unceasing, efficient, and energetic work, which secured for us a most
properly of our est
successful financial season.
On Wednesday, December 22d, 1897, at the annual meeting of the N. A. A. A.,
a punch bowl, tray, and ladle were presented to Dr. Paul -I. Dashiell by the corps of
cadets as a token of their respect, gratitude, and esteem, and in recognition of his
services to athletics at this Academy. This was but a poor tribute to the work of Dr.
Dashiell in our athletics, of which he is the backbone.
We make our bow to the team of '98, May its season be most successful, and, in
consequence of its work, may the standard of foot-ball at the U. S. N. A. be raised to
even a higher level.

N NY one wishing to become Euniliar with aquatic sports at the Naval Academy
can find a short history of rowing in the '97 edition of the LUCKY BAG.
Doubtless the reader will be surprised to learn that during the season
of '96 the cadets in training for the crew enjoyed the advantages of a
coach for the first time. Up to that time the captain had coached from
4 his position in the boat, with a limited amount of success, and it is due
to such hard work on the part of Churchill, Kimball, and Palmer that
the crew of to-day is so well settled. Mr. Kinney, of Yale, struggled
manfully through the season of '96, doing excellent work with the green
material and drilling into them the rudiments of rowing. I-le was fol-
lowed by Mr. Armstrong, an excellent oarsman and captain of the Yale
'94 crew, who brought the crew to a much higher state of efficiency.
The result of his work is seen in last year's record, when the cadets

followed Cornell across the line at a much shorter interval than any
other crew, and defeated Pennsylvania by a splendid lead of seven
boat lengths-nearly twenty-seven seconds. This unexpected showing aroused great
interest among the cadets, and exploded the belief that a light crew cannot compete
successfully with a heavier one.
VVhen the call for candidates for this year was issued, nearly twenty-five per cent.
of the battalion responded, but owing to many limitations this number was cut down
almost one-halfl Work with the new men commenced on December 16th, and through-
out the winter they were given pair-oar work indoors, varied occasionally with an eight
when the weather permitted.
On the first of March Mr. Armstrong again took charge of the coaching.
During the year just passed another boat-house was built and given to the cadets,
so that now, with four shells and a barge, we are fairly well equipped for good work.
It is pleasant to know that rowing has found many friends at the Academy and has won
the favor of those in authority to such an extent as to gain many privileges.
There are, however, serious drawbacks, some of which, it seems, might be abro-
gated, so that more time could be given to preparatory work. One should remember
that the season here is very short, ending when other institutions are just opening their
contests. In order to get a crew into shape it is necessary to begin early, and since the
time allowed averages less than an hour a day, the beginning must be still earlier. In
fact it is so early that the foot-ball season and crew season overlap one another, and
since many men go through both seasons, they have scarcely a day's recreation through-
out the year. While this state of affairs keeps them in good condition, it is too great a
strain, and great care must be exercised in keeping up the life and dash necessary for
Efforts are being made to arrange races with the first crews of the country, and
every one looks forward to the coming contests.
One dares not predict, but let each strive on with the hope of success, and time will
tell the story.

J. B. RETZ,
On March 26th, 1898, The Naval Academy Fencing Team defeated the Cornell
Fencing Team in a nine-bout contest in the Gymnasium, Annapolis, by a score Of7 to 2.
HE art-or science, should it be called-of fencing has developed a great
deal of interest at the Academy during the last several years. The cadets
have, in this branch, as in so many others of athletics, suffered the dis-
advantage of marked lack of time for practice, this being obvious when we
consider that they have but one hour's fencing a day. Howeve1', wonderful
improvement is made individually during the year, and so interested are
those in practice for the team that they are willing to begin work well
before Thanksgiving time, and often keep it up until well after Easter-a remarkably
long spell of practice, when one considers the amount of time devoted to foot-ball and
crew practice. '
The great incentive that each one holds up before him is the chance of going to
New York with the team to compete in the Inter-collegiate Fencing Tournament, held
under the auspices of the Racquet and Tennis Club of that city. It is now an Academy
custom to send each spring a team of three men to New York, and the pleasure of the
trip, to say nothing of the relaxation of discipline for a few days, seems well worth
working for. Last year the flame of Academy enthusiasm in fencing was set burning
more brightly by the fact that a cadet won the individual first prize in this meet, although
the Navy team did not come out in first place.
Too many thanks and too much appreciation can never be rendered Mr. Robert M.
Thompson, of New York City, who, a graduate himself of this institution in the Class
of '68, always lends a helping hand to aid the promulgation of fencing and sword-play
of all description at the Academy. The very warmest hospitality and highest courtesies
are extended by him to the Navy team every year, and it is he who offers the individual
medal for fencing in the Inter-collegiate Tournament.
In addition to this, exhibitions of fencing with foil and sabre, and of exercise with
bayonet and cane, are given in the gymnasium at the annual indoor tournament.
Thanks to the officers of the Navy Auxiliary Athletic Association, medals are awarded
to the winners of the competitions in small sword, sabre, and cane, and thus lively
encounters usually result. Then, in the last week of the academic year-that long-
looked-forward-to June week-a final competition is held to decide to whom then
belongs the right of carrying off the handsome medals offered by Mr. Thompson for the
best work with both foil and sabre.
Strenuous efforts are being made to arrange for an annual meet with Cornell, with
the possibility of including other colleges, to be held at the Academy, and prospects are
bright for the realization of this wish, which would so benefit fencing at the Academy.
Any description of fencing at the Academy would seem inadequate without
rendering thanks to Professor Corbesier, the swordmaster attached to the institution, for
his practical, conscientious, and interested instruction. His devotion to his profession
inspires in him an enthusiasm which he succeeds most admirably in causing others to
share with him, and, in sharing it, to become so interested as to appreciate best his
honest, steady, well-meant and well-executed work.
The enthusiasm in fencing has shown itself to be growing more pronounced, both
by the larger number of its devotees and by the general interest of the corps of cadets,
so let us hope that this spirit will continue to increase from year to year, and that the
U. S. N. A. will keep up in this branch of athletics to the admirable standard set in

Foot-ball and " crew " have been advanced to a fair degree of
suceessg but both of these, besides requiring the participants to
be skillful, strong, and full of grit, generally require a good deal
of weight. For all those not naturally adapted to such athletics,
the gymnasium affords a ready means for competition and develop-
mentg and in the spring the track athletics afford a field for skill
and training that is large enough for all. A realization of this fact
has begun to show itself in a more marked interest in general
ARACK and gymnasium athletics, though holding an important place
The ff mnasium tournament held last ear was a decided suc-
cess, and prospects point to an equally successful one this year.
lixceedingly good contests in boxing and wrestling between representative members of
the several divisions insured the continuation of these contestsg and tennis is becoming
a recognized factor in the athletic sports.
The "track team" needs a stimulus that cannot be obtained at the Naval Academy-
that is, competition with other teams. All training is now purely individualg and all
competition is between members of the same institution. For these reasons a great
amount of interest cannot be aroused, nor the maximum results be obtained. However,
the records here are very good Q and, as they are being improved upon every year, we
look forthe time in the near future when steady and harder training will give us a good
V set of records and our athletes will be numbered with the best.

A up HE Young lVIen's Christian Association of the United States Naval Academy
gg, was founded by a small band of cadets in 1879, and has since grown into
:A CA a body whose influence is felt throughout the entire institution.
The purpose of the Association, as stated in the preamble to the con-
stitution, is: " To cultivate Christian fellowship, to mutually aid and encour-
age each other in the conscientious discharge of daily duties, and to strengthen and
establish Christian character." The constitution provides for seven officers, but this
elaborate schedule having been found unsuited to the most successful working of the
Association, has since been abandoned for a simpler one, the officers being three in
number, viz.: a President selected from the First Class, a Vice-President, chosen from
the Second Class, and a Secretary and Treasurer, from the Third Class. These officers
are elected by ballot at the close of each academic year. The officers for the academic
year ending June gd, 1898, are as follows: -
Pl'CSlClCl'lt--1'i1iNRV T. VVRIGIIT, '98, Alabama.
VlCC-iJl'CSlClCl1t-TQICIIARD D. VVIIITE, '99, Missouri.
Secretar and Treasurerf-EDwA1m S. Aeicson R., I oo, Penns flvania.

In former years the Association received the support and assistance of many of the
omcers stationed at the Academy as instructors, but of late the membership has been
confined exclusively to cadets. It is probable that the constraint engendered by the
presence of officers did not conduce to the edification of the new members. During
the early life of the Association the division into active and associate members, on the
basis of church membership, was very clearly defined, but the distinction exists to a much
less degree at present, since nearly all members take an active part in the work, thereby
benefiting themselves and others much more than could be expected under the former
The Young 1VIen's Christian Association of the Naval Academy has a peculiar
advantage over Associations at otheriinstitutions, on account of the close contact of the
cadets, brought about by community of interests, by smaller numbers, and by living
arrangements. For these reasons influence is much stronger and more widespread
than is possible where greater diversity of interests exists, and where, on account of the
large number of students, it is difficult to become personally acquainted with classmates,
much more with those of other classes. Moreover, on account of this more intimate
contact, the cadets are enabled to give temporal assistance to their fellow-students by
aiding them in the difficult work of the curriculum, and experience has shown this to be
the most effective kind of personal work that can be done among the cadets.
Meetings are held on Sunday afternoons, in the Academy chapel, and a Bible lesson,
previously selected and promulgated, is discussed, one of the members being appointed
by the President to act as leader. In the work of Bible study the Association is ably
directed by the Chaplain of the Academy, who by his thorough knowledge, wide expe-
rience, and cheerful aid, gives new life to Bible study, and so shapes the course that the
greatest benefit can be derived from it. Q.
In addition to the Sunday afternoon meetings, the Chaplain has organized a Bible
Class, which meets every Saturday evening to discuss some topic selected by him and
adapted to the needs of the students.
The membership of the Association for the present year is fifty-six, and the attend-
ance at the Sunday meetings varies from twelve to twenty-five, the average attendance
throughout the year being from eighteen to twenty.

Our Smuggy and Our Juggy.
l'll sing to you a song, it will not be very long,
About two seamen bold, distinguished from the throng,
One of them was innocent, the other very strong,
Our " Smuggy " and our "juggy," I shall call them in the song.
Now what is the resemblance between these sailors true QFD,
Lapsfzs fZ'llg'llI6 is their specialty by all beneath the blue,
Both are short of memory, they remember but a few
Of the many things required of them, but this is mire nous.
When we were faull OLlI1f"StCl'S Smu TT made a blunder rank,
A Y Y 1, r LAY
Marching down to drawing-we were marching by the Hank,
Column right " was his intention, but sa ! he was a crank,
s f Y
Right turn" is what he said, then in confusion sank.
One night, not long ago, last fall it was, I guess,
The little task of adjutant fell to juggy's mightiness,
Of course he had to say it wrong, in absent-mindedness,
Look to the front along the line and thus obtain your dress.'
One day upon the cruise, Smuggy at the masthead sat,
A sail it hove in sight, " Sail ho!" cried Smuggy, pat,
Dead off the bow, sah-stahbode bow "-what do you think of that?
That sail was off the port bow, or I will eat my hat.
One day, it was at infantry, quite early in the year,
juggy was instructing plebelets, just beginning their career,
The order was " Parade rest," what did juggy volunteer ?
Carry back your right foot, six paces to the rear."
There are many other stories that I could tell to you,
Of " double-headed skeeters " and "little whistles " too,
Of juggy's favorite kind of breeze, and other things they do,
But they won't bear repetition, and that is very true.

Little Gaieties by Billy W-ll--ms.
To Nelson, who has made one of his usual brilliant recitations:
" Unfortunately, lVlr. Nelson, you don't agree with the author."
To Mr. Brown, who has struggled with a curve for some time, and who finally turns
round with beaming face and expectant smile:
" Well, lVlr. Brown, you've made a pansy, and you ought to have a sunfiowerf'
After searching through the list of probs. for something easy :
" Well, Mr. Pettengill, you may toy with the eighth."
In soothing tones to cadet who has not hit things very hard:
" What's the matter, Mr. -P The Lord isn't with you this morning."
To a first classman who has been struggling painfully with a forgotten prob. in
" That's not hard, Mr. VVoods, you would have thought that prob. fruit last year-
this higher education doesn't agree with you." '
Iincouragingly to first classman who has worked a prob. in Least Squares much to
" You have the answer, Mr. -, do you understand it P"
" Oh, no, sir."

Cadet-" Well, I don't see why you don't take AB:x."
Billy-" For the same reason, my young friend, that you don't go to a hardware
store to get a glass of beer."
" Mr. N-ls-n, step up to the box-office, please."
" lVlr. Gauss was a pretty good old German mathematician, he probably smoked
many a pipe and drank many a glass of beer before he found that out."
"Mr, W- -ds, now suppose you have a beam supported at both ends, and an
elephant comes along and sits down in the middle of it."
" Well, gentlemen, you've left undone those things which you ought to have done,

ls the -est place of misery
It has ever been my misfortune to see.
From three to twelve, and from twelve to three,
'Tis naught but boning and hard studee.
Iinglish and French and then Skinnee,
Bones and Drawing and Electricity,
Stars, buzzarcls, Astronomy,
And sometimes even Physiology,
And, of course, don't forget that History 3
But worst that was or ever shall be
Is that cursed, abominable Gunnery.
Mr. McIntyre, take the board and let me see
Whether I shall give you a l. or a 1.3,
Make a neat, perfect sketch of plates I, 2, and 3.
Put in every thread, nut, bolt, catch, stop, and key,
And explain every detail completely.
No rulers,' you say, why, what's that to me,
You have blackboards, chalk, and ingenuity,
All of which are given to you perfectly free,
What more you can want I really don't see, I
So I shall be forced to slam you on the tree
Since writing the above I have come to see
There are other things harder than Gunnery,
And especially this Electricity.
I went into the Semi-Ann., blithe and free,
And I came out an object for great pity,
I struggled and swore that sat. I might be,
But my final exam. mark was just a 1.3.
O powers that rule over land and sea,
Why should you ever do this to me,
You have given me cause for my insanity,
For dynes, ergs, and watts with me don't agree
That exam. was one that you don't often see,
It has never been equaled in history,
'Twas good cause for prayer or profanity,
And in my case, caused raving insanity.
There were torques, probs., and reversibility,
Polarity, windings, and cute IVIcNamee,
Dynamometers, motors, and activity,
Couples and creeping and regularity,
Commutators, magnets, and Paul Dashee,
Motor probs., currents, conductivity,
Brushes, exciters, and little I-Ienri,
Polyphase coupling and dear old Halsey.
Coils, ohms, and permeability,
Volts, rheostats, inductivity,
Hysteresis, transformers, and Mr. Crosley,
Sparking and how to check that tendency,
Arc lights, alternators, air-gaps, and E. C.,
Drums, regulators, and Cit Terry,
Collectors, potential, and lost energy,
Safety catches and efficiency,
Leakage and curves and tall Jacobi,
Diagrams, governors, high frequency,
Compounding, cores, and profanity,
O, Sultan, you're out-done in barbarity.

CA1"rA1N P. H. COOPER, Annapolis, Md.
Dear Sz?-I understand that you are the Superintendent of the Naval Academy,
and as my son johnny has just passed his entrance examinations, I take a mother's privi-
lege of writing to you. In his studies I am sure that my Johnny will stand at the head
of his class, for his father and I both consider him very bright, and he has always done
well at school at home.
I am sure my Johnny will not cause you any serious trouble, for he is not a bad
boy-being very tractable and amenable to reason-but he is very mischievous and full
of fun, and he may cause you some annoyance by playing some of his boyish pranks on
you 3 such as taking Mrs. Cooper's jam. But if you speak to him kindly and remonstrate
gently with him, and tell him how much his actions grieve you, and how surprised you
are that he should act so-I feel confident that you can bring him around.
I have fears in one respect, however, for he has caused us much annoyance and
inconvenience at home, and I am afraid he will not be different with you. This one
trouble is his disinclination and refusal to get up in time for breakfast. We have found
that the only thing to do is to make him eat a cold breakfastg and if you try the same
means I think you can get him down in time, but I should certainly advise you not to
inconvenience yourself and the other boys bykeeping breakfast waiting for him-and
don't call him more than once. "
Hoping that you will learn to care for our Johnny, admire him for his good heart,
and that you and he will get along well, believe me,
Most cordially yours,

The Lad that I-lit the Tree.
CIQu.s'pf'cykr!Q' Dm'12'1z!m' fo Mc Slrizzfgf lJtybm'l111w1f.j
Old Slcinny assumed an aetinic ray,
And a simple harmonic grin had he
As he watched his son, Elma, go forth to slay
The lad that had hit the Skinny tree.
This doughty lad, who had fought three years,
Who had stemmed the flood of the dark heat wave,
Now bade farewell to his Katie Yon dear,
And sallied forth a two-five to save.
At length the magnetic moment had come,
At a single blast from the trailing horn,
And a series of rolls on the wire-wound drum,
The coercive forces began to form.
They met, in a dense magnetic field
The lad and young Elec. stood forth to the fight,
And each vowed, as the line of force he heeled,
The death of the other to expedite.
The lad showed little reluctance at first,
For separately excited was he, -
And he bravely tried, whenever he durst,
To find lElec.'s permeability.
But the poor boy's capacity suddenly failed,
And further resistance spurious seemed,
Then Elec. with greater potential assailed,
And over his head his weapon gleamed.
The lad in a magnetic whirl went down,
And we marvel not now that he died,
From the double effect of a compound wound,
And an air-gap in his side.
In a collecting ring they gathered the wreck,
In a Leyden jar his dead turns they encased,
And over his bier, as a sign of respect,
A drooping characteristic placed.
As young Elec. now leans o'er the commutator
He feels touched to his laminated core,
And he drinks to him to whom 2.5 was par,
To him whose induction troubles are o'er.

Cadet Blank of the First Class receives an invitation to dine at Mrs. O. F. Ficer's.
He has never met her, however, and wishes to create as good an impression as possible,
he therefore spends one night in getting pointers, and the next day and night in com-
posing the answer. After using innumerable scratch pads, pencils, pens, and an unlim-
ited amount of paper and ink, he finally produces the following, which he and his room-
mate proudly admire for twenty-three and a half consecutive minutes. Then, using a
sheet of regulation paper, he writes it in the following manner. The advice of his
friends, however, seems to have slightly mixed him:

DEAR MADAM:-Mr. H. Blank, '98, Naval Cadet, U. S. N., received Mrs. Ficer's
kind invite to come over and take dinner on Sunday, and as I have no other bid, and
also have no demerits, he shall be very glad to give you the pleasure of my company,
and will be on hand promptly on time.
Aren't we having lovely weather now? But, gee whiz! we had an awful Skinny

Well, I must close. Hope you are well.

I entered, one day, the Academy,
Less than little knew I of the sea,
They shoved -me into a tremendous hall-
Each candidate had to stand or fall-it
And stuck an exam. beneath my nose,
Who lacks a lwoyive, out he goes,-
I got the lzvo-jiw, there began my woes,
But I'll never go there any more.
The Mess Hall, the Mess Hall,
They eat such things, and they drink such thin
In the Mess Hall, the Mess Hall,
That I'll never go there any more.
Such a terrible hubbub greeted my ear,
Abandon hope, ye that enter here,"
Such terrible manners had the cadets,
Playing with napkin rings, making lorgnettes,
And how they did throw biscuits about,
And slaughtered the ants as they crawled out,
And conversation went on at a shout,-
Ch, I'll never go there any more.-Cho.

The soup came in, it was cold as the ground,
Lucky it was, for soon I was drowned,
The moke tripped up and fell to the deck,
And poured all the soup down the back of my necl
You're in the soup," said the head of the table.
I laughed at the pun, for well was I able,
The soup's not in me, my stomach's still stable "
Oh, I'll never go there any more.-Cho.
Next there came a terrible wait
For the signal of Spriggs, high potentate,
The beef came in, 'twas good, and so
I sent out again. " 'Tain't no mo'."
What! meat all out! Spriggs, l1ow's that?"
I-Ie's been there before and has it pat:
Stewuhd's 'sponsibul, suh, foh dat "-
Oh, I'll never go there any more.-Cho.
All too soon the vegetables come,
In the spuds the impression of a thumb,
Peas and carrots mixed together,
Macaroni for rainy weather,
Donlt look away from your plate, it's rash,
First thing you know you'll hear a splash,
The moke swiped your plate, and now it doth w
Oh, I'll never go there any more.-Cho.
Another long wait, we patiently prattle,
The mokes the dishes madly rattle.
At a signal from Spriggs dessert comes in,
An eager hush replaces the din,
A craning of necks to see what Spriggs
Has provided for us, and then, by jigs,
A howl goes up-it's peanuts and figs-
Oh, I'll never go there any more.-Cho.
That's dinner. Breakfast is all the same,
We seldom have steak and never game.
The steak islso-tough, it can't be split,
But we swallow it whole, unto the last bit.
An omclet they spring almost every day,
Long dead are the hens that those eggs d
The infernal stuff' is chock full of hay-
Oh, Illl never go there any more.-Cha.
At supper, the diet is Russian salad,
Our hearts are brave, but faces pallid,
The alternative's meat, thoroughly chilled
So raw I long to have it killed.
We bravely struggle with each compound,
Striving to make out a meal profound,
But the bell rings us off ere enough we surround
And I'll never go there any more,-C110
When I think of the meals at home,
I firmly resolve no more to roamg
A sailor's life is hard at the best,
His joy in good living's no idlejest.
'Tis all that he has for many a year,
When parted from all that he holds dear,
But alas and alack! none of that is here-
I'1l never go there any more.-Clzo.

Cadet goes down to the Officer-in-Charge and tremblingly broaches the question :
" Sir, may I have permission to take a bath P"
The Officer-in-Charge looks up in a preoccupied way that he usually has when he
is trying to rag one for non-reg. collar, and says :
" What's the matter, are you on the sick list?"
" No, sir, but I haven't had one in a week, and I have prepared all my lessons for

Cadet P. Winkle wishes to see the Superintendent on a matter of great importance,
so he puts on his best " Weems " blouse and leaves his room.
He requests permission to leave the floor, and this is granted, after he states his
business to the Cadet-in-Charge.
He then repairs to the Officer-in-Charge and tells him he wishes to see the
Superintendent, asks permission to see the Commandant of Cadets. After again stating
his business, the Officer-in-Charge gives him the permission.
Cadet Winkle next approaches the Orderly, and in great trepidation tells
him his name and business and that he has permission to see the Commandant. After
being ushered in by the Orderly, Cadet Winkle tells the Commandant he has permission
to see him, asks the Commandant's permission to see the Superintendent. He now has
for a third time to state his business. The Commandant of Cadets, who is a military
officer, by-the-way, gives him the permission, and tells him to " Get out of my ohicef'
The poor fellow is now pretty well rattled and wishes he had let the matter drop,
but decides to see the game through. He goes to his room, after reporting his return,
puts on his overcoat, reports leaving the fioor, again stating his business, tells the Officer-
in-Charge he has permission to see the Superintendent, and reports leaving the building
to the Officer of the Day, again stating his business, procures a map of the Academy,
so as to walk on the right bricks, and starts off Eventually he arrives at the Superin-
tendent's office and runs up against the Superintendent's Orderly. Here poor Winkle
again states his business, and informs the Orderly that his name is Winkle, and that he
has permission to see the Superintendent. He is shown into the waiting-room, and
waits. After an hour or so, he is told that the Superintendent will see him. He sees
the Superintendent, and after telling him he has permission to see him again states his

DEAR S1111-WC have been using your fourth-class pencil sharpener for the past
eight months, and can truly say they give more complete satisfaction than any we have
yet tried. With their aid thirty pencils can be easily sharpened in as many minutes.
We find them particularly useful just before math. exams and practical work in
navigation, and can recommend them to our successors as filling a. long-felt want.
Very truly yours.
At the Hop: A Satire
Who is that handsome, straight cadet,
With eyebrow turned to gray,
And gladsome smile upon his face,
That makes him look so gay ?"
It was a little maiden spoke
Unto an ancient dame,
Oh, how her heart went pit-a-pat,
Thus early in the game.
Oh, my daughter, can it be
You do not know his name?
That is the far-famed Makemtired-
But you are not to blame."
Why do they call him Makemtired,
That debonair young man?
Could any one do more to please?
See how he wields that fan."
Nay, be not thus enthralled, my lass,
That prattle from afar
Might, if 'twere in proximity,
Your pleasure somewhat mar,
Nor be cast down forevermore,
If never you should meet,
There are two hundred others who
Wotild throw them at your feet."

there is nothing but a feeling of love by cadets for the Officer-in-Charge, and that it is
self-denial to pull the sick list.
She has kept quiet as long as she possibly could, and now springs the trite old gag
about the number of admirers she has at home, but how much she would rather have
some other that she knows of, and that is not a thousand miles away eitherg that blue
clothes and brass buttons always had a peculiar fascination for her. just as she reaches
belt-buckles they reach the door. Here it is that she hopes to make her Final charge,

that nothing she has said could possibly have been meant for him, as he has never yet

Out in the corridor I softly crept,
Wlmile the Officer-in-Charge and the gyrene slept,
And then, as I lighted my fine cigar,
Said I, " I'm the warmest of all, by far." '
But the Ol'Hcer-in-Charge of a sudden awoke,
Aroused by the smell of my cigar smoke,
And he caught me then, like a blooming jay,
And this was all that I could say:
I don't want to go down to the ship " Santee

I don't want to go clown to the ship " Santee,"

It is a popular fallacy that cadets are not allowed to drinkg they are not permitted
to deviate from the regulation Naval Academy cocktail, the ingredients of which are
hereby published for the inspiration of ambitious plebes:

Precautions Against Extravagance.

Dear Parent :--
The sending of money from home to cadets at the Naval Academy leads to many
grave irregularities, and it is earnestly requested that you cooperate with us in our
eudeavor to teach cadets how to live without money. Cadets are given one hundred
cents a month, and this is ample for all purposes.
The following cash account of one of the greatest spendthrifts in the Academy
shows how much can be done with this large sum:-
Candy--ten large chocolates, ................. 800.05
Paper-one large pad of beautiful yellow paper, containing over 300
sheets, ,......... ............ .
Envelopes-one pad of same, cut out, folded, and pasted into en-
Stainps-QThis would be more, but by sending letters unsealed they
go for half pricej, . ,.............. . .
Flowers-given to girl taken to hop, four large and gorgeous sun-
Howers. fThis was a useless expense, as giving Bowers. is
considered bad form at the Academyj ,..........
Renting of one large covered wheelbarrow for taking girl to hop on
rainy night, ..................... .
Visiting cards-one sheet of drawing paper. This was cut up into
proper sized pieces, and marked with the large and beautiful
stencil furnished each cadet upon entrance into the U. S. N. A.,
Trousers pressed. This cadet is wry particular about his clothing
and appearance, and was carrying it to an extreme, for these
same trousei's had been pressed only six months before, . . .

The Signs of the Times at Annapolis
When, in tears, once again, our Oehm's blouses we don,
And we woefully draw our new books from the store,
And we think with regret of the days that are gone,
And over our studies we steadily poreg
When once more commences that maudlin routine,
When the pap seems to flourish as never before,
And Savvy grins with his leer so lean,
And the unhappy state of things we deplore,
When we're finally settled down to our lots,
When the north wind chills through the rickety walls,
VVhen we pile overcoats on our little iron cots
And get up with anguish when reveille calls,
When the band plays worse music every day,
And the Supe kindly grants us nine hops for the yearg
When we're on the third grade and can't draw our pay,
And the dread Semi-Ann., with its " farewell," is here,
When the birds in the morning arouse us with songg
NVhen we don't bone anything all the day long,
VVhen the lawn mower clatters with ceaseless din,
And First Class men to buy their outfits begin,
When the yard, now green, makes a joyful display
Of shirt-waists and duck skirts and bran new gowns,
With dress parades, drills, and promeuades gay,
And the june ball at last the gayety crowns,
i It's Spring.
VVhen the " Monongahela " ploughs o'er the restless sea,
To see Consul Reid and suite if she can,
When the new made First Class men all agree
To see which can be the greasiest man,
When at last she returns, and we're granted our leave,
With never a cent except carfare half-way,
W'hen we climb into cits and our lost time retrieve,
Indulging in all that's expensive and gay,

Severn 3 a brisk summer breeze was ready to waft the vessel upon its way to
the far-off Madeira islands as soon as the anchor should be weighed and the sails set.
Her lofty masts and spars tapered exceedingly and in point of fact she seemed to feel the
thrill of life along her keel.
It was the good ship " Monongalielaf' the pleasure yacht of the Academy. After
months of exhausting toil the human system craves rest and recreation. Our generous

lion had gone aboard. Each cadet had found in his own state-room
a bunch of flowers, which the good captain, with characteristic thoughtfulness, put into
a vase upon the centre table. The stewards had placed beside the flowers some dainty
refreshments, clothes and other belongings had been carefully packed into the lockers,
the last farewells had been said, and all was ready. Some of the future admirals lingered
ooms, while others reclined in steamer chairs on the deck, lazily smoking
I-Iavana cigars or watching the blue jackets as they spread the sails aloft and walked
around the capstan, weighing anchor to the inspiring music of an air from " Pinaforef'
And then we were off The "Monongahela" dashed away like a race horse with the
little " Standish " puffing and snorting and straining her boilers in a resolute endeavor
and 3 desperate desire to keep up with the procession.
In an incredibly short time we had reached the capes. Here we anchored in the
loaming for the company to enjoy the scenery. One suckling Nelson laid down in the

lciammock rack to take a nap. Being awakened for dinner by a steward, with thought-
less precipitancy, he stepped out on the wrong side of his improvised couch, and went
down into the deep and disappeared under the waters. Everybody went overboard after
n and finally fished him out. Ile got his feet wet, but was otherwise unmjuiec .
The next morning when we were awakened by the getting-up bell to prepare for
breakfast, we were sailing the ocean blue. The gentle Zephyr of the day before had
increased into a gale,and the waves, as waves will do,were rolling. Several of the young
gentlemen from the plains, who had not made the personal acquaintance of Neptune until
now, proceeded without delay to the rail, leaned over and paid the old gentleman the
usual tribute, making, incidentally, some incoherent remarks about New York. To the
urgent solicitation of the attentive stewards that they would take some nourishment they
responded with a sad shake of the head, as if they had lost all immediate interest in
affairs of this life.
The gale increased and the vessel bounded from wave to wave. We were sailing
under close-reefed fore and main topsails and foresail. Some of those who, considered
themselves sea-dogs went to the rail and fed the fishes, and one of our passengers,
a prudent gentleman, acting upon a, hint received in the ward-room, donned a cork
jacket. I-Ie was heard to remark to himself, " Sink or swim, survive or perish, you can't
lose me, Charlie." Then the windows of Heaven were opened and the flood came, and
the rain descended upon our ship and-it was very damp. But we had come out to enjoy
oirselves, and we determined to do it in spite of all temptations. lt is true that the
fl Jor of our main saloon was awash, but then there was no dust. It is true that we had
to sit on the floor and wrap our legs around our plates, but who could complain of that
when the plates were piled up with all the delicacies of the season?
Then the gale went down, and there was another gentle wind of the Western sea
breathing and blowing us on to Funchal. The days followed each other in rapid and
delightful succession, as if old Time was having a cake-walk. The attentive attendants
brought us the news of every event as we lay in our reclining chairs reading the
morning paper or the latest novel. On the port bow, one morning, was a whale, blowing
like a Congressmang the air was Filled with flying-fish caroling in the morning sun.
The little nautiluses spread their little sails, and the little Fishes looked at us and smiled
to see such joy. A school of porpoises was reported to the windward, but we would
nat look at them. We did not want to be reminded of school, Oh, it was a happy and
joyous time. The sun rose and set asit never rose and set before. The moon shined
as it never shone before. The stars atwinkled as they never twinkled before, and in the
clear air of this summer sea the planets looked like eggs which the moon had laid, as
she never laid before.
i We arrived at Funchal july Ist. The tug pulled us in as aforetime and pulled the
c iptain's leg for his little whack also as aforetime. Then we went ashore and had wine
to make our hearts glad and oil to make us of a cheerful countenance. Mirth was
uncontincd. There was a French ship at anchor and her "aspirants," as the French
middies call themselves, were lost in admiration of our Parisian accent when we talked
to them in their native tongue.
The voyage back to Annapolis was but a repetition of the outward run: one long,
sweet song. '

dontchukno, we'll keep time to the music of our haht-beats," and the ends of his
mustache are submerged in his ears and all grows dim around as he smiles.
A fair seeker after information inquires of her escort at the hop: " What makes
all those men in plain clothes stick a few brass buttons on their coats? Do they do that
just because they are going to a naval ball?" and smiles incredulously when he tells her
they are officers. " Oh, I always did hear that you cadets told sucl1 awful stories."
Mr. livans.--" Take the subject of moments and measures of force-say, foot-
pounds, foot-inch-tons, etc."
" Aye-aye-sir !"
"Tl1at's all right for a moment,--you seem to understand it-but why don't you
draw a picture. There are three or four different pictures of moments in the lesson."
Nelson femphatieallyj.-" Buoyancy? Buoyancy? Why-er-er-r-buoyancy is
buoyancy itself, sir."
Seamanship Instructor.--" Well-why is there equilibrium when the point of
support and the centre of gravity lie on the same vertical line P"
Instructor-" You are in a cutter in Hampton Roads trying to make your ship
which is riding to a leewarcl ebb. You find that it will be very hard to reach her. What
would you do P" ,
Cadet-" Row like h-I."

Abou Ben Zcno fmay his tribe decreasej
Awoke one day from a deep scheme of grease,
And through the blue mist that filled a section room,
Darlccning the brightest day yvith gloom,
Saw a Rotund Form draw nigh.
Exceeding grease had made Ben Zeno try
To make his style of script conform
To that considered here so very warm.
And, in the corner of his board, his name
lrVas blazoned in an imitation lame,
But not so lame that what was written there
Was as illegible as all the models were.
The Rotund Form approached, between two scornful shrugs,
In rasping whispers spoke: " Is your name ' Mr. Buggs ?' "
, ac wk ak vs Pk Pk vs in
That Rotund Form has vanished from ou1' sight,
No more he spots us with inane delight.
That name to fame has subsequently crept,
Abou Ben Zeno is Abou Ben Buggs yclept,
The Way They Recite.
MUGGY has been sitting gracefully back, with his mouth open, an innocent
,' ," f ,'.',' smile playing about his lips, and a new blown, verdant, confident expression
on his face. " Mr. Abele !" He jumps to his feet, lands in the awkwardest
if i position available, and, raising his eyebrows, guilelessly breaks out in a bag-
pipe voice that can be heard over at the armory, " Saw!" He is told to proceed, and
diffidently prances to the board, assumes a high-pitched, school-girl treble, and smiles
profusely, he makes some breaks which he hastens to correct, blushes, gets embarrassed
-his voice gets higher-finally he is calmed, he finishes with only a few more smiles
bows awkwardly, and, showing his gums gleefully, proudly sits down, thinking he has
" knocked a four."

Nelson has been to the board, where hc has written in a large hand, with words
several feet apart, about six sentences. Meantime he has taken his seat, which is alvi ajs
in the back row, and is diligently boning his subject with an innocent childlike expression.
The instructor calls his name, he starts up, looks scared, assumes an air of injured inno-
cence fto deceive the instructorj, and begins to grunt and stutter while approaching the
blackboard. He does not pretend to recite from his work,but stumbles blindly on, stop-
ping and stammering after every clause, in the following manner: " Er-uh-uh--Farm
day-uh-he took two no um, uh-" etc., rolling his eyes and moving about all the time.
He strikes a snag, and springs one of his only original, incredible bluffs in.his expectant,
uncertain, injured manner, and the instructor calls him down, he argues, he looks hurt,
he busts, and struggles ong Finally the instructor lets him go, he looks rattled, grunts,
sits down, and grins in his usual fetching manner.

judy Wright sits with a determined hypnotic gaze on thc instructor. I-le is called
upon. He jumps to his feet, and, with his mesmeric eye still focused, sticks out his
chin, adjusts his feet at an angle of sixty degrees, and waits. I-le is told to recite. With
a lightning glance he determines the latitude and longitude of the place upon which he
is going to stand, and, approaching the blackboard by the rectangular method, takes his
place on the spot, assumes a quizzical, infallible expression, smacks his lips, and begins.
I-Ie does not hesitate, nor stammer, but follows the rules for reading as laid down in
Swinton's Fifth Reader, rolling his r's and whistling his s's, occasionally darting a cat-
like glance at the instructor, or pausing at the end of a sentence, carefully to dot an i or
to make the cross of a t a hair's-breadth longer. After reciting, he make's an "about
face," goes " fours left" to his seat, sits down mechanically, and resumes his hypnotic
spell on the instructor.

" Sir?" '
" You may recite."
fDingus rises slowly and gracefully shuffies -up to his board and proceeds to dilate
at length upon a difficult problemj " I get fifty-four revolutions a minute, sir."
" Yes, that's right. I didn't think you could get it, though."
" Oh, there ain't nuthin' hard about that prob, seems ter me anybody could see

fPompey rises, arranges his classic locks, looks fierce, and then beginsj " This

And Unele Sam stooped from his regal height,
Taking my beau g
Dressed him in uniform buttoned so bright,
Robbing me so,
Sent him out East to the Maryland folks,
Ignoring my woe
Where l1e's besieged by those feminine pokes,
Boring him so.

Uncle Sam brought to Annapolis last year,
Admiring him sd,
The loveliest fellow-this Middle dear,
Beguiling me sog
We dance and we stroll, and it is such fun,
Finding a beau 5

Loving me so.

Once in an old-fashioned garden,
Midst flowers of brighest hue,
In a warm, sunshiny corner,
Some bachelor buttons grew.
And a dainty, fair-haired maiden,
With eyes of softest blue,
Walked at eve in the garden,
When the Bowers were wet with dew
And she chose from out the blossoms
One that grew apart,
In a warm, sunshiny corner,
And wore it next her heart.
The fragrant bachelor button,
The flower quaint she chose,
And left the scarlet poppy,
And golden-hearted rose.
Now, in this " Naval City,"
And worn by each bonny lass,
Are bachelor buttons still, my dear,
But bachelor buttons of brass.

IC have made the work of preparing candidates for the Naval
Academy a Special Slzmjl, and our success has never been
cqualed by any other school.
For ayeal' and Ll MQ' we were the 01101 preparatory school from
which any candidates entered the Naval Academy. In three years
Iwo lJzmd1'ed and Sfxbl-ibree of our pupils were passed, as to mental
'Ham qualilications, at the U. S. Naval Academy. Eleven out of lwelve
were passed on one examination and twenty-six out of twenty-
f seven on another. We pm in about eigbbf-five per cent of tbose
Our pupils take high class standing after entering the Naval
Academy, iwelve out of the hrst fbllflieell in standing for the year,
in one fourth class, and the hrst iwenbf-Six in another, having been
under our instruction prior to entrance.
E make it a point to give each pupil a great deal of individual
instruction, designed to enable him not only to enter, but
to stand well after entrance.
Pupils are received into classes at any time.
We prefer to stand upon our record, but we will furnish references,
if it be desired, from the Naval Academy, the Navy, the Army, from
Congress, and from gentlemen of prominence all over the country.
Our testimonials come from the highest sources.
We publish yearly the examination papers that have been given

THE FOREMOST INSTITUTION OF ITS KIND.
T is the Largest, Strongest, Safest, and Best company in which to
insure, as it combines all the advantages of age, large and carefully selected
membership, financial strength, absolute security, and the cheapest insurance
that is honestly possible under any contract which has a definite value
to the beneficiary.
A Being a purely Mutual Company, the Assets and Surplus all belong
to the insured and are held for their security and benefit. No other institution pos-
sesses superior facilities, and no company in the past has invested the funds paid by
policy-holders to so great an advantage.
' Its large dividend returns reduce the final cost of insurance to a
Its new forms of contracts, combining Investment with Insurance, are
the most liberal ever offered by any Insurance Company.
Being practically N0n-Forfeitable and lnC0nteStable, it provides a
legacy and not a lawsuit.
All Claims are paid immediately upon acceptance of proofs of death,

AN IDEAL ROUTE to an IDEAL RESORT
The Chesapeake Sz Ohio is in the advanced class of
railroads. Its service and system are most adequate, and
both are maintained in the most exacting manner. From
a point of safety it is nearly absolute, for luxury and
enjoyment it has no rival. lt crosses the very threshold
of the world-celebrated health resorts of Virginia and
her sister State. It brings the Hot Springs of Virginia
within a night's ride of New York or Philadelphia, and
eight hours' ride from Washington. A special Pullman
compartment car leaves the Pennsylvania Railroad Sta-
tion, New Yorlc, Tuesdays, 'l'hursdnys, and Saturdays at
5.00 if. M., attached tothe Chesapeake SL Ohio U F. F. V.
Limited," and runs through without change via Wash-
ington, arriving nt the Springs 9.10 next morning. This
train has daily connection at Covington, Va., for Hot
Springs, 25 miles distant on branch line.
Those who have been charmed with the beauties of
the Hot Springs Valley in the sunnner and fall months,
will be no less delighted with the sublimity of its environ-
ments and its delightfully rare atmosphere during the
winter and spring. While a great deal of' interest at Hot
Springs centres in its hath house, which has no equal in
America, and in the flowing springs of natural hot water,
the curative qualities ol' which are phenomenal, the high
class of its patronage renders the place attractive to those
who do not visit it simply as a sanitarinm. The New
Homestead, unquestionably the finest hotel in the moun-
tain regions, is admirably well adapted to all seasons.
The heating arrangements are perfect, completely in con-
trol, and the ventilation of the rooms and corridors is in
thorough command,insuring pure, fresh air at all times
without tlraughts or fluctuations of temperature. Few
hotels are better fitted to supply every want and gratify
every taste. GEO. Nl. BOND, Dist. Pass. Agent,
