this volume is respectfully
rig " .-, fig 1-IEN this volume of Tins Lucky .BAG leaves the printers, the class
whose joys and sorrows it records will be only a memory to those
:f a -j2 :",,. i who read it. lf the book receives one-half the kindly indulgence
that has been shown to " Ninety-nine," we 11eed have no fear for its
reception. As the time for graduation approaches, our lirst feeling of delight at
the prospect has, i11 a degree, sobered down into regret at the thought of breaking
up the close associations of academic life, and we leave this book as a memorial
of the class friendship that will live as long as " Ninety-nine."
We take this opportunity of expressing, in behalf of the class, our apprecia-
tion of all the numberless evidences of good-will that we have received during our
course. The .Board of Editors is particularly indebted to the Second Class for
their assistanceg to Mr. .Benjamin C. Heald, Jr., of New York, for the use of his
war photographs, and to all the other friends who have helped in the production
of the hook.

History of N inety-N ine.
64 T,S a burning shame," roared Father Time, closing his book with a
' slam. "I gave pages of history to Ninety-nine, and not a line
has been recorded these two years. I suppose all will pass into
ini" the dark forgotten, just as did the hopes of Second Class summer
at the Academy last year. How little people value the treasures of timef' Qlt was
a bleak day for Ninety-nine. A black eye in lfather Time's estimation was worse
than a bad name in the Commandant's office. XV ho was to take her part? An-
other outbreak was imminent when in walked Neptune. There was no question
as to whose part he would take, for Neptune himself was once a naval cadet. He
bilged on his Plebe Semi-Ann, but squeezed into the navy through other channels,
was twenty numbers ahead of his class when they graduated, and then, by rapid
strides, made his way to his present billet-Ruler of the Seas. His trident was
rusty from salt water, an occasional barnacle fell erustily from his clothes, and
the threads of his long beard, usually so silvery, showed yellow and tangled from
neglect during war timesg but for all that, he was the same old Neptune. The
same warm heart that befriended the comfortless Sep QIq'lebe during the few raty
days of his academic life Cfor he was a May Plebej, was ready now to befriend
those in need of his aid. A friend in need is -- the sick list if pulled at the right
Father Time fairly jumped when he saw Neptune. " just the man I am looks
ing for," he exclaimed, hanging l1is seythe on the bell shade. " Have they silenced
the batteries F "
" Completely," replied Neptune. " The Spanish loss is not known, but it is
believed that many were killed and wounded."
" l suppose the victory is due to the skill with which our ships were handled."
" Precisely," answered Neptune. " Largely due to a naval cadet named Mad-
ison. He had charge of the poker deck, so the Admiral was relieved of a great
deal of anxiety along that line."
" By the way, what's become of N inety-nine. They seem to have cut me com-
pletely in regard to this history businessf,
" Never mindf' said Neptuneg " wait till you see the third volume of McClay:
then you'll hear of themf' Neptune was always ready with a jmffus gigantibus
for his children.
g " Oh, well, so far as that's concerned, I hear about them now indirectly," Said
Father Time. " The doings of Woodward and Sadler constitute the society col-
umn of the Aguadores Evening fo1r1'nal,, and you needn't tell me of the horrible
way Condesa Marguerita Marie Asailho Qdaughter of the Generalj committed
suicide because Buchanan wouldn't resign and marry her. But what I want to
know is why they didn't send their history last year, and why it hasn't come this
" Well, like a good many people, Daddy, you've been misled. It wasn't their
fault you didnit get their history last year. You can't expect that telephonic
LUCKY BAG to stay in good condition in spite of misuse. The transmitter needed
a general overhauling. As for this year's, 'I.'ve brought it along with me." Witll
that explanation, Neptune handed him a roll of papers, musty, begrimed, powder
stained, but still surrounded with an air of importance.
Father Time relapsed into silence, while the melancholy click of Evans's chalk
as he started on his fourth lJOZ11'tl at skinny recitation, came across from the other
world with depressing regularity. Finall y, Father Time succeeded in casting off
the knots that held the roll Qthey were Millerlistsj, but no sooner did he open the
roll than his jaw drooped in abject terrorg his eyes seemed to start from his head.
while his rickety old knees beat three full flourishes on the underside of his table.
Visions of his father's hen ard 'lloated before l1is eves.
" J-J--J-Jigger my jigger mast! " he exclaimed as soon as he gained control of
his lower jaw. " VVhat's this?"
" That's Soennechenis round writing. I thought you'd like it. You see, it's
only a modification of Courtney's line of beauty. The trident serves as a first-rate
round writing pen, and, as for ink, aha! these are war times in the other world."

" Well, to go on with tl1e situation," continued Neptune. " There were Beck-

nated and did not stir till, ' Now, jump in the gangwayf added another night1na1'e
to their troubled dreams."
Neptune glanced rapidly over the pages of his roll. "fill not read you the
bill of fare on board the Mo1L01igahcla," he finally said. " It would only remove
your pity from the Cuban reconcentrados. They were the envy of the whole
battalion when the ill-supplied stores gave out about a week before making Chesa-
peake Bay. That brought about a very small change, though, The fare before
had been beans and corned beef. Now it was beans alone. They were served
ri la tin can, though, so that helped matters some, and it made them relish the
good things at the Class Supper."
" Ah, that Class Supper! Give my congratulations to Ninety-nine. Never
was a better expression of good-fellowship and class unity expressed in a more
seamanlike way. A newspaper published in this little town of Mars over here had
three pages devoted to it next day."
" Yes, it was successful," said Neptune, simply. "Think of the obstacles
that had to be overcome. Academic influence, epidemic dead-brokety, telegraphic
come-homety,-all worked against it, but the class was well represented, and who
can forget the thrill of admiration and comradeship that rose when Fenner, lilelm,
Dungan, Kalbfus, Lackey, and Larimer made toasts as sparkling with wit as the
wine they were pledged with.
" The majority of them were dead broke next morning, and had to depend
on ingenuity and sight drafts to get home. jerry Morgan got home on a preach-
er's ticket-half fare. Helm, the overgrown boy, got his rates without the least
trouble, as did the child livans. .llrinser got half rates, being a 'Children of
lsrael.' Kimberly rode home on the circus train with tl1e animals. Fenner missed
three trains, then decided to walk. Cole, unable to keep on an even keel, came
home in the baggage ear, check 41 I',874. Courtney? Oh, he had his OW11 private
" They were pretty well scattered before the next few days were over. There
was a flutter of hearts and handkerchiefs as ' Dolly ' stepped off the train at New-
port. lfar out in bleak Dakota, a little squaw with bronzed face and pigeon toes
watched anxiously for the weekly train. lyler eyes glowed with a tender light as
the choo-choo slowed down, and, with sprightly tread, tl1e Red Cloud chief strode
manfully toward her. ' Ugh! ' said she. 'Ughl ' said Red Cloud. The word,
so full of expression, sent a thrill through both, and, with full hearts, they trudged
silently off to the wigwam.
" lfar to the north, where the ice for years had clung to the elammy slopes,
where the moss in bunches hugged the trees as if to keep out the little warmth that
coursed their branches,-Buchanan made his way. ln a day all was changed.
A month of tropical weather followed, and a cyclone swept the place when he
" To the other end of the world our graveyard finally drifted, and there fol-
lowed a conquest never equaled since Ponce de Leon cruised around that God-
forsaken land looking for the fountain of youth. Many a wild tale has this bold
man told of his deeds, but they are not a matter of history." ,
Here N eptnne tried to turn a page, but the next fifteen stuck together as one
piece. Once more a cloud fell over his face. " They'll turn my hair gray again,"
he said. 'A They turned it yellow when they got out the class ringf'
" How did that get done? " asked Father Time, referring to the well stuck
" Oh, that's one of llaby Lewis's jokes. He'll grow older in time."
" Yes. there's hope for him." said Time. " I hear he was the reigning beau
among the high school girls while he was home on leave this summer. Speaking
of love affairs, how's VVeichert? U
" lnsanefl answered Neptune, and then he fell to musing. Finally a smile
played over his face as he resumed, " Yes, there was something Philo-maniac
about W'eichert's devotion. Some fellows went into his room one day and found
him boxing the compass athletically around a glass of water with a violet in it.
' Where did you get it?' was the first question. A VVeichertlike snicker was the
only answer. 'What was he going to do with it?' 'Oh, he'd keep it as long
l 'l ss it! ' Two days later the
same fellows came in again. The glass was now on the tableg and, although the
violet looked fresh as ever, he told them that the time-the ecstatic time-for press-
as it would stay fresh, and then-dreamily-ie c pre
ing would be about the next day."
" The next day the fellows came in promp 3, . . y .
was about time. Inkstands, paperweights, dictionaries were all piled up. One

one of the fellow
out-it was an artificial violet.
" He is the same fellow that lost his orders on the way to Key West, isn't he? "
asked Father Time. " lfut them in a book for safe keeping and then sent the book
home. We heard about it from one of the search parties that wandered over here
looking for him when the Oliricttc' sailed from Guantanamo and left him behind.
They said he had gone ashore in a boat, and had simply disappeared. Did they
ever hear of him? "
" Oh, yes," said Neptune. " Drunkards and lovers have a guarding deity.
He turned up all right at Guantanamo, but forgot to bring his clothes on board
with him, in fact, never thought of anything rational till after he had got some
letters Cor, rather, some letterj written. Of course, when he was given his choice
he chose to stay without his clothes, for he had no more idea where his clothes
were than where his class ring was. and was specially recommended to the De-
part111ent for the willingness with which he underwent the resulting inconvenience."
Father Time laughed. " l see you haven't lost any of your influence with
Madame Fortune," he said. " Did they ever recover SZlKllCl'lS body? The report
was Circulated OV f l e " ' ort Florida went down
er here that he was lost when tie t1 ansp

" VVell, well, well! .lflow reports get twisted,'l said Neptune. " You must
have newspapers over here."
" Yes, printed on asbestos sheets," said Time.
" lfll take this opportunity to straighten this out," said Neptune. " One night

to the line. '.l'wo of ns, indeed, before they had even succeeded in becoming
aeclimated, were taken from our midst to make room for better men. After this
elimination of the strays we found ourselves a solid body of natural--born
'ln the midst of the hilarity so prevalent on the occasion of our receiving the
good news of ot1r advancement, " Al " was vigorously explaining to the corrobo-
rative " lfool " how and why, and the scheme he had originated which was sure
to work-" don't say anything about it, because T want to keep it mumfl 'lt
worked--about as Zeke does.
'l'he lloard is certainly to be congratulated on its eye for color, for the birds
they selected are all of a feather.-a more homogeneous lot of lunaties could
scarcely be compiled. 'There is a glorious combination of facts, frolics, freaks, and
fun, from the stately Kentucky " Judge l' to the squatty llittsburg " Roe," includ-
ing the Prince of all lunatics-" Tnsanity " Sadler--'lianny the flower girl--and
the most theoretical of all theorists, the Fool, who answers also to the name of
" Miserable Pumpkin."
Chief Idiot, " the .lleastf
ldiot, ist Class, " the Coon."
ldiots, 2d Class, " Al " and " the Great I-Iorn Spoon."
VVarrant ldiot. " the Ape " Qaj rank-machinist.
Ordinary Simpleton, " the Lad."
And, finally, comes " slow, but heady "-at times unsteady--Zeke.
'lt is needless to say that we are a very congenial crowd. As graduation day
approaches energy reeedes and the anxiety of the Corps is again being aroused
for fear that when we get leave " Al " will be " buneoed again by --"
Qln the meantime, let us-
Hail to the Chief who in war-rmth advances.
May we not all be vietims of faneiesg
As to lAssistantsl, all of us know,
'l'hey're not so warm they'd melt snow.
To the music of tl1e file- .
And the buzz saw-quite as vile,
VV'e man our lathes and, for a joke,
Speed 'em up, and watch 'em smoke,
Little reek we for storm or snow,
Wliile we have our watch belowg
And, in lieu of an oath or so,
All we say is, " Let 'er blow."
So, l1ere's to the glory of old lQQ,
To the health of the Corps as well as the line.
'.lf'o the beautiful girls we leave behind,
That our return unmarried shall find.
Wt- shall live in liopeq and " dyne " despair of ever getting out of the Corps, but
even if the 'Persomiel llill cloesn't pass. we console ourselves with the idea that,
There's one thing a greaser can do:
Raise plenty of money
To spend on his honey-
'l'hat's one thing a greaser can do.

The Naval Academy, just before the war, was a curious place. No rumor
was too preposterous to find creditors. and no man so popular as he who could
invent a plausible story of how we were to spend the summer. Une rumor said
that the Third Class was to be divided, according to standing, into two divisions-
the Hrst division to take a special course, and be graduated in one year. Another
said that the Second, Third, and Fourth Classes were to cruise up and down the
bay in the flrlmmllgalzvla.
As a matter of fact, the class was officially sent on leave. lfVe left the Acad-
emy on Friday, May 28. On Monday morning, fourteen of the 'forty-one that bade
some faii maid a hasty good-by, and went to sea, had their orders, and six had re-
ported 'for duty. NVe couldn't all go, because there weren't places enough, and
other places to conquer, and, therefore, while some assisted in besieging Spanish
forts, others besieged fair feminine hearts. one with as much success as the other,

Class History , 1 oo 1
,Vg r" .2,, ::g HEN the sun had gone down behind the low Maryland hills on the after-
f fi noon of May 20, 1897, there might have been seen, huddled in a dark
corner of the ship " Santee," at anchor in the bay at Annapolis, a small.
T' ,""1' " silent, trembling group: it was with this diminutive crowd that the
class of loor came into existence. " Wc're in for it, I'lirdie," whispered one of the
group, glancing cautiously around the deck to see if any one were listening.
.Birdie smiledg but, suddenly remembering' his position, grew frightened at his own
lly june 5, when the upper classes went to sea, the group had grown to thirty-
seven. The only class then remaining at the Academy, the members thereof at
once took undisputed possession. lf they went to seamanship in the Boat House.
they could find innocent amusement in unitating' the boatswain's " Malik your
wurlc "Q if they had drill in sailing launches, they could read the latest lfrench
novel. They went fishing, they spoonedg and occasionally, on a dark Saturday
night, they would sound off with a wild serenade to NVashington High School
VVith one exception, this SL11ll1llCl' of 1897 passed away peacefully enough.
That exception was caused by non-regulation celebration of the liourth of july.
,lt may do for a civilian to throw a giant cannon-cracker on any particular spot that
he selects, but at least one man knows that a naval cadet can not do so on the clean
deck of a man-of-war.
September examinations added lifty'-eight members to the class, so that, in all.
ninety-five men toed the scrateh,' to use an athletic term, when actual work for
the year began on the Iirst day of Uctober. Life in New Quarters did not have the
pleasures that the summer months o11 the " Santee " had allforded 1 but there was lit--
tle time to think of past enjoyments. Wfhen the semi-annual examinations in -lan-
uary. 1898, were over, twenty-one of the ninety-tive who had " toed the scratch "
were far behind the distance flag. The only wonder was that there were not more.
A period of work and worry, such as the first term's had been, is readily forgotten 3
leaving only the remembrance of the jollity of the holidays.
The event of war with Spain interrupted the natural order of discipline and
life at the Academy during the second tC1'1l1 of the academic year. Seventy mem-
bers were left when the shortened annual examinations brought the year to a close
at the end of May, 1898. Sixteen members had made a starring' average, an occur-
rence unprecedented in academic history. The new third class was ordered home
for the summer: but, instead of taking the leave, twenty-nine secured orders to
proceed to sea for the summer. Others remained at home only because they could
not secure orders. The twenty-nine were scattered about, some with the block-
ading' fleet off the Havana coast, some with the fleet at Santiago, and others on the
auxiliary cruisers' Leave was granted to those at sea, when the war had been
practically closed on August 13.
A few days before leave had expired in September, the members of the class
were saddened to learn of the death of one of their number-Thomas H. Wlieeler-
who was drowned while in bathing at Montauk Point, Long Island. He had come
to Camp Wikoff to spend his leave with his father after three months of sea-service
on the " Columbia."
Lcssened by death and resignation, the year of 1898-99 begins with sixty-eight
men at their places. The change between this new year and the one just preceding
it, is marked to all. There is more freedom, less restraint. Despite several disa-
greeable occurrences, the year is passing pleasantly.
To every person comes the longing for what he may not have. VVhen this
craving is constant. it settles into discontent and misery. No doubt, our Westerner
' ' f 1 ' f
often wishes himself only a farmer again, and our Dutch1nan o ten ongs or
Gretchen and the " schnapps "1 and our Hoosier for his corner grocery and lns
pipe' and our Southerner for his damsels with their merry eyesg but all such
feelings are momentary. United by a bond of fellowship that grows stronger with
age, the class of 1901 adds its ' ' '

History of the Class of IQO2
'g f A:,. Z. 'ln' lS'l'liN, Oh, ye people! for the Sachem speaks. Open wide your ears
5 unto his words. for he shall reveal unto you the history of a great peo-
ple, even the noble tribe of 1902.
Lo! in the year of our Lord, 1898, A.D., great tidings were sent
.forth through the broad and goodly land, a call for the assembling of brave spirits
f invadino' a wondrous and fertile
who should be prepared to join for the purpose o g
tountry. And the name of the land was the U. S. Naval Academy. Therefore,
Cllfly in this year, even in May, there assembled in the bordering countries a vast
Itssemblage of braves prepared to endure all and to struggle nobly in this unknown
flllfl. And they were encouraged by the knowledge that others had entered before
them. and they were undismayed.
And finally they did attack, after muci prel . '. ,
ictorious. Now when they had
l J'1l'ltlOll' and, though many were
hurled back from the walls, still were many v
Clltered, the great chief did speak to them in t
and I will call ye when ye are needed." And they went, rejoicing. and were made
ere much admired.
Qllnt later in this year, even in September, did the great chief send for them.
:mil lllily Came, and lol they were joined by a larger band who had likewise invaded
the wondrous land. And, verily, they were united and became the great tribe of
1902. Now, behold, this valiant band was assembled in a large floating wigwam,
and its name was ealled the " Santee," and there didl they learn many strange things,
Oven sleeping in hammocks, drilling with weapons of steel, tying strange knots,
scles were made strong and supple for the

hard work they must undertake, though many were grievously strained and
become lofty and did hold their heads
lllkll with pride, and did think themselves lords of earth and very hot stuff.
lint. alas, there did return one day three other valiant bands who had con-
flllC1'ed the land aforetime and the tribes were assembled in one great wigwam, and
tlllll' then did the tribe of lfjO2 grow fearful and sore afraid. For these older
tribes did look upon them with scorn, and they did reveal unto the new braves the
flread secrets and mysteries of this favored land: and truly then did the new band
amuse these braves, bowing themselves in homage, singing strange songs, and
flfllwlllg' dances before them. and they did become meek and lowly and did try to
lllfle themselves and did shrink from the gaze of others.
llut through all did the braves of iooz wax wise, and they did learn new and

tages as does that at the Naval Academy, season after season, in its
efforts to put a successful team on the gridiron, and it is certain that
nowhere else are better results obtained.
The obstacles with which the team is confronted are such as would be con-
sidered insurmouutable anywhere else, with the possible exception of West Point:
but the growth of football and the records since the appearance of a Navy team
before the football critics, by defeating the Columbian Athletic Club of Washing-
ton at that city on Christmas day, '89, shows how well the difficulties are sur-
Despite these troubles, the cadets each year set to work with characteristic
determination. The quality of that spirit being illustrated by the schedules of thc

of every cadet is due, in no small degree, the success that has always attended out

On October 7, '97, the future of Uncle Sanfs Navy Team was clearly demon-
strated. Not that we were victorious over the sturdy athletes from the University
of Pennsylvania, but that their score had been brought down to the lowest notch
since '94. Two hard-worked-for touch-downs were all the Red and lllue could
score in the two twenty-five-minute halves.
ln '91 the cadets met their hrst and only defeat in the series of games played
with VVest l'oint. During the winter of '93-'94, after our Army friends had been
defeated by the Navy, these annual games were prohibited through the llonorablc
Secretary of the Navy by request of the Superintendent of the Military Academy.
At the opening ofthe season of '98 prospects were good for the renewal of themuch-
desired games, and, soon after the season had fairly begun, a challenge was 1'0-
ccived from the l oint, showing their willingness to renew the onlv means bv which
the athletic talent ofthe two institutions are to be compared. 'Upon referring the
challenge to the proper authorities, and after a careful investigation, it was learned
that the only way in which the game could be arranged would be by the action of
the same authority, and in the same manner as they had been brought to an end.
lt is hoped, however, that all barriers will be removed in ample time to permit of a
game between the teams of '99,
In spite ofthe poor railroad facilities of Annapolis and the many obstacles to
overcome, Cadet P. 13. Dungan, by careful management, completed the strongest
schedule ever put before tl1e team. .But as heretofore, they all, with tl1e exception
of Princeton, :fell victims before our light but plucky team. S
Opportunity for preliminary practice is usually afforded evenings in the spring
at snapping back, passing, punting, and handling kicks, the last week of September,
by the members of the team sacrilicing the last week of their much-desired leave,
at team workg on the cruise the theory of the game is thoroughly discussed by all.
l'he past summer the cadets being ordered before the close of the academic year
to various ships, their late return prevented the accomplishment of any of this pre-
On September 24, when several of the players reported for early practice, it
was learned that it would be impossible to get the team together before the first of
October as a number of the old players had just a few days previous been detached
from the ships on which they had been serving and were now relating their ex-
periences to someone Q U more thought of than football.
The afternoon of October Il saw the first line-up of the season between the
team, under the direction of Coach Armstrong, of Yale, and the " Hustlers U under
Professor Dashiell. So telling was the game on the condition of the individuals
concerned as to convince all that what was needed was training. '
With the team in such a condition, and the strong schedule before us, our
prospects were not of the brightest. Owing to this condition, and the consequent
impossibility of preparing for a game within a week, the tirst game scheduled, and
that with the University of Pennsylvania, was canceled.
Training was now earnestly begun, and every moment that could be given to
football was made the best of. During the first week the evenings, from 9.30 to Io,
were devoted to a thorough explanation of the rules by Professor Dashiell. While
the theory was being thoroughly boned up, the practice was by no means neglected.
After-dinner signals and evening playing so developed the team as a whole
that on October 8, with the loss of one of our line, we defeated the University of
Bucknell 1. r-o. The following Saturday we met our only defeat of the season, and
that at the hands of the Prineetonians. Although the game was one-sided in score,
it was nevertheless a job for Princeton to prevent our scoring, as several times their
Qoal was threatened.
Pennsylvania State College, Lafayette University, and Columbian University
were easily defeated successive Saturdays g but costly were the victories to the team.
ln these three games live of our best players were injured, three so severely as to
be out of the game forthe season. Although in this crippled condition, the team.
with five substitutes, would have defeated the strong Lehigh team November I2
had the New Team had any opportunity to line-up during the week. Nevertheless,
t' game On November 19 the heavy team

of the University of Virginia fell before the light but snappy-playing team of the
The work of the team was brought to a finish Thanksgiving morning upon
defeating the Virginia Military Institute team on a snow-covered field, and in a
drizzling rain. The playing of the Academy team during the past few years has
shown the necessity of arranging games with larger colleges, who, it is ceded, play
a better game and are posted on the rules. In several of our games the past season
it was noticeable that the teams, although playing a hard game, lacked knowledge
of the rules, thereby delaying the game with unnecessary arguments, much to the
dissatisfaction of the spectators.
For the thorough understanding of the game and its rules, by both the team
and the " I-Iustlers," and for the success with which athletics in general at the
Academy has been attended, we feel greatly indebted to o11e who may here be prop-
erly termed the Father of Athletics, Prof. P. Dashiell. To him, to our coach, and
to the generous support of the Officers' Athletic Association, we wish to express
our utmost gratitude.
By the graduation of the class of '99, the end of january, we prematurely make
our adieu to our worthy successors in their undertakingf to maintain the standard
of the game, may they be rewarded with greater success than their predecessors.
and let all who engage in athletics remember a victory at the Academy means a
victory for the Navy.

The strong showing of the previous
year's crew had helped greatly to arouse the
enthusiasm of the cadets to the point of fore-
going the pleasures of spring afternoons in
the Yard for hard work in the boat and hard
training out of it. If success is a reward,
however, our crew may well be satisfied, for
the results of tl1e two races showed conclusively that the Academy needs no handi-
cap even when competing with the first crews of the country.
The race with Columbia was easily won, but Pennsylvania beat us, and. as the
year before we had won from Pennsylvania, the outcome was somewhat discourage
ing. Some weeks later, off Santiago, when we read in old papers of the result of
the Pennsylvania-Cornell race, we felt that our defeat was no disgrace.
The crew owes much of its success to Captain Graham, '98, who was ordered
to sea only two weeks before the first race.

Fencing Tournament in New York City last spring, owing to the early
gI'ZLClLl3t1011 of the 1' 1rst Class, the remaining members of the team not
-1 being sufficiently well prepared to take their places. The good show-
ing against the team from Cornell University early last year inspired the friends
of tl1e Academy with the hope that we would have a good chance of carrying off
the trophy in New Yorkg and this encouraging circumstance brought out many
cadets as anxious candidates for places on the team which is to go to the tournament
next April, if all goes well.
As the class of ,QQ is to leave long before that time, there are some of us who
are disappointed in missing the hoped-for trip, but we can afford to be magnani-
mous, and sincerely wish those of Nineteen Hundred who are so deeply interested
in fencing, all luck to the coming contest.
Fencing as a sport at the Naval Academy is decidedly picking up, for the team
this year has been larger than ever before, and some candidates had to be turned
away for lack of vacancies. This increased interest in fencing is largely due to
Professsor A. -I. Corbesier, our Swordmaster, to whose untiring patience and con-
tagious enthusiasm the team owes its very existence.

1 NTEREST in track and gymnasium athletics at the Academy
1 grows yearly. The seventh spring athletic meeting was held on
-wa . ns, .,, Q May 7, 1898, and was, in every sense, a complete success, reflecting
ag' much credit on the Academy, and especially on those who helped
to make it a success. Everything contributed to make it interesting and enjoyable,
even to such circumstances as could not be controlled. The valuable and indis-
pensable suggestions and assistance so freely extended by the Naval Auxiliary Ath-
letic Association, and the interest taken in the preparations by those cadets who
took part, made failure impossible, and were well rewarded by the large attendance.
Two records were broken: the mile run by Vincent, 5 min. and 3 sec., and the high
jump by Wainwright, 5 ft. 721- in. Vincent lowered the record ISE seconds, and
Wainwright raised the high jump 211 in. Taussig tied his old record of 292 sec. for
the 220-yard hurdle. This makes a very favorable comparison with preceding
In evidence of the interest taken by the cadets, it may be told how and when
they train for the events in which they intend to compete. Every afternoon after
drill, during the six weeks preceding the meeting, a large number of cadets will be
seen by anyone who will care to walk down toward the track. Some are running,
some jumping, pole-vaulting, putting the shot, throwing the hammer, or practicing
starts. 'llut this is not the only time they spend in training. If anybody is sleepless
toward morning in the latter part of April, they might take a stroll down the " sea
walk " in the fresh morning air, and they may be assured that, unless they get to
the track before five o'elock, they will not be the first ones there. This means more
than will probably be understood at first thought. l1Vhen a person must keep up
the amount of mental work in addition to the hard drills that fall to the lot of the
Naval Cadet, he can appreciate every minute of eight hours' sleep, and those cadets
who will give up their last hour of sleep, so highly prized by most people, certainly
deserve all success.
But this is not the only branch that comes under this department. The gym-
nasium athletics make another very important and also most interesting one. The
last Athletic Tournament took place on March 19, 1898, and was attended by a
large and interested audience. The program opened with the wand drill by the
Fourth Class, and made an appropriate beginning, in so far as it was an exhibition
of the necessary First exercises that gradually developed into those requiring greater
skill and much practice. The program was an interesting one, and considering
the time available for preparation, the performance was very good. The leading
features were the side and long horses, Taussig's jumps on the long horse partic-
ularlyg the horizontal bar, bayonet' drill, and trapeze, the three-legged race, and last
but not least, the pyramids. Morris's " foot giant " on the horizontal bar was a
performance requiring skill and nerve, as was the hand-walk on the parallel bars by
Mannix. Landenbcrger also did excellent work, being in nearly everything. The
trapeze performance by the Bowsig Brothers was conceded by all to be the feature
of the evening, creating great excitement by the final drop. All who saw it have
looked forward to the next exhibition, as did those who gave the spectators their
fright, and the Bowsig Brothers sincerely hope someone will take their place, in
order that no one will be disappointed by their graduating ahead of time. The
pyramids were greeted with great enthusiasm, and the applause was well deserved,
as anybody can find out by standing for a short time on the uncertain shoulders of
another person, with his head some fifteen feet above the point where he expects
it to be at any time. The last pyramid, called " Elepliantumfi will probably never
be forgotten by those who saw it, certainly never by those who were in it.
In closing I wish to express my gratitude to those who have helped to make
this department so successful and interesting. To the officers for their support
and assistanceg to the cadets for their hard work and many self-denials, and to the
audiences for their encouragement by their kindly interest and generous applause.

There has long been a prejudice in the battalion against Y. M. C. A. work at
the Naval Academy. In the lirst place it is hard for a fellow whose whole teaching
has been inllexibility toward those he must inlluence or control to try to influence
by other means. ln the second place it is hard, sometimes, to reconcile the work
of such an organization with the work that is set before all in the service-hard,
for example, to believe that a meek spirit would help masthead a topsail yard. Then
everybody knows that the institutions that have no interests beyond their own
bounds Cand our association is not connected at all with those outsidej are the
most difficult to keep alive. Considering all the obstacles that have to be overcome.
it is wonderful to find the vim and tenacity that hold it together and make it a
blessing in more ways than one.
'l'he meetings are held every Sunday afternoon in the chapel, and consist of
singing, talks, and a prayer by the chaplain, whom we have to thank for unfailing
attendance and many an interesting talk. The talks made by those who take part
are devoted to consecration, devotion, and duty as often to the flag and service as
to the Power Aboveg and many a thrill has risen at the story of the man who
climbed the rigging at Samoa, the man who stood alone on the bridge of the steam-
ship " Central America," or the men who kept a steady helm as they steered the
floating mine into Tripoli Harbor.
Altogether, the chapel on Sunday afternoon is a place where cadets, from
plebes to first classmen, may spend an hour in happy associations, and gain ideas
of duty and devotion that otherwise may not come to them till much later in life,

, ' .5 N Saturday, the twenty-eighth of May, occurred what was, perhaps, the
happiest event of our lives. For weeks we had hoped and begged for
Ks detachment amid so many disappointments and setbacks that, at last,
'e hope gave out, leaving us the prospect of the usual summer cruise, a
prospect made unusually distasteful by the war fever. On that day, however, every--
thing seemed rose-colored, and we dreamed splendid daydreams as we received our
orders from the Commandant. After a morning of hu1'ried struggling with trunks
and grips, we assembled at the station, where all our old Academy friends had
come to give us a good send-off and to brighten those last few minutes, as they
have all the rest of our course. We reached Washington in the course of time,
where, as our train did not leave until Sunday, we spent the rest of the day and
some money in various ways.
Sunday morning was hot, and by the time the crowd had collected and the
baggage was safe, we were hotter. The trip down was hopelessly miserable, al-
though the train took things very comfortably, stopping to 1'CSt frequently, and at
other times waiting for the conductor to shoo live stock off the track. The aborig-

Reaching Jacksonville only two or three hours late, we were delighted to find dinner
and the train that was to carry us to Miami both waiting for us. Dinner was over
in no time, and iust as we were pulling out of the station, we saw our football
ca :tain bearin ' down on us with a " hit the line hard " ex Jression on his face and a
keg of beer under each arm. The kegs and the captain landed safely in the baggage
car, and we fell upon them in very much the same manner that the Assyrian came
down. In spite of all prejudices, I defy any man who is coated, inside and out,
to feel like a Thanksgiving proclamation in

W'e were not quite decided as to whether the " St Paul U or " St. Louis 3' was to
have the honor of conve in us to tl1e fleet, so our first care was to Jresent our orders
at the navy yard, where we were disagreeably surprised to find that neither of the
greyhounds was waiting 5 nor, in fact, was there even an ordinary yellow dog boat
for us. One night's stay at a hotel of telescopic prices and microscopic rooms con-
vinced every one that, unless Mohammed wanted to go broke, he would better go to
the mountain without loss of time. Consequently, with the exception of the
others who were able to join their ships at once, all of
us gladly fell in with the suggestion that we go to Tampa and there take passage on
the transports, to make ourselves as useful as possible under the title of signal offi-
cers. VVednesday night some thirty of us were once more afloat heading for Port
Tampa on the " Mascottef' and leaving Key West without a sigh. The only plenti-
" lndiana " crowd and a few
ful things in that town are heat, sand, and mosquitoes.
Thursday afternoon we were ashore again, this time at Port Tampa, where we
waited an hour or two wondering what was to come next. Finally, Captain
Hunker, of the " Annapolis," stepped off the Tampa train, only to he instantly over-
whelmed with the orders that directed us to report to the senior officer present. VVe

as best we couldg some going ashore to the " Inn," while others chatted with the
ollicers of the transports, discussing everything, from the conduct of the war to the
cure for snake bites, until sleepiness sounded taps for a tired-out crowd. .l:1'01l1 that
time on we exercised whatever stock of patience we possessed in waiting for the
expedition to start. The long, hot days passed very slowly, and we whiled away
the time in a dozen different ways, some studied signals very conscientiously-for
half an hour, others wasted gray matter and ruined their tempers at solitaire.
Those who were fortunate enough to have books wore them out with much reading,
and one of us, at least, read " A Gentleman of France " four times in as many days.
varying the monotony by spouting Kipling until the Captain recommended castor
oil, his one remedy for insanity, yellow fever, and sprained ankle.
Those old sea dogs are a wonderfully entertaining lot of men. Myiown skipper
told me long tales of adventure and hair-breadth escapes all over the world in the
old days when, to use his words, " a seaman was a seaman and not an ocean street-
car conductor." Almost every evening he would end his talk with an improving
discourse on the subject of woman, and, as we separated for the night, I heard his
dismal warning to look out for a woman with an upper topsail lip and a main-tack
nose, given with a sigh and a shake of the head that hetokened sad experience.
Then, too, one could go ashore and watch the work of loading the ships in the
canal. ft was l1ot and uncomfortable on the docks, but the hurrying stream of busy
men was a sight that repaid one for all the trouble. All branches of the service
were mixed up in apparently hopeless confusiong a squad of infantry would march

from the strain of watching.
After several days of waiting the expedition was ready to startg troops and
stores were aboard the transports, and one by one the ships dropped down into the
lower bay so as to be able to start in regular formation. At about three o'clock in
the morning of the day we expected to start, just after the troops had come aboard
our transport and were sleeping peacefully, a hysterical little tug came rushing
down from Port Tampa and an excited voice from her deck shouted that the
Spanish fieet was only three hours down the coast and was coming up to destroy
the fleet. Then a sort of pandemonium broke loose. A river boat, the " Mascottef'
had brought the troops down to our ship and was still alongside discharging her
cargo of tents and provisions, so it was decided to send the soldiers back on her at
once, as we drew too much water to go back loaded. Sleepy men groped around
in the dark for their equipments, and stumbled over each other in the gangways,
but in spite of the darkness every soldier was off the ship in half an hour with the
exception of the regimental doctor, who slept through it all, wakening just in time
to rush on deck and send some despairing howls after the " Mascotte " as she was

the sailing orders given to each captain, our ship had no lights whatever, with the
exception of a red stern light, but most of the transports were lighted from stem to

a holiday air that seemed strangely out of keeping with its mission. On the fol--
lowing night we passed through Rebecca Channel in the Dry Tortugas, where a
1 Tavlor, of the " Indiana," joined us, and the course
was changed to the eastward. We passed within twenty or thirty miles of Key
West, and could see the beam of the powerful searchlight on Fort Taylor, although
the buildings on the island were all below the horizon. Then followed an uneventful

Such a cruise certainly would not have been chosen for a pleasure trip, but
everyone made the best of it, and the troops would get up a cheerful burst of
enthusiasm on the slightest provocation. A floating bread box was the signal for
vociferous cheers all along the line, while some poor chap paying tribute to Neptune
was a source of unfailing delight-to the others. I won't describe the agonies we
underwent trying to keep our dinner under hatches so as to appear like old sea--
dogs before the Army officers.
After what seemed like a circumnavigation of the globe, we rounded Cape
Maysi and finally came in sight of the fleet off Santiago on june 20. Inasmuch as
the arrangements for the reception of the Army on shore were not quite complete.
the transports lay off Santiago during the daytime, and at night made a cruise of
some forty miles to the south, returning at daybreak, so as to be out of harm's way
if anything happened. After two days of waiting, orders were received for the
fleet to proceed to Daiquiri, where the forces were to disembark. The fleet headed

eastward late in the afternoon, but once more the men of the Second Division were
doomed to disappointinent. This division, under the command of General Kent,
was embarked on the three ships " Santiago," " Iroquois," and " City of Wasliiiig-
ton," and, after a long hunt, they were found, separated from tl1e fleet, and sent back
to make a feint of landing on the other side of the harbor entrance. Owing to some
misunderstanding, those three ships were forgotten, and the feint developed into a
trance that lasted two days longer. On the night of the twenty-third, however, we
were resuscitated, arriving the next day at Siboney, where the troops were disem-
barked in boats lent by Admiral Sampson, and in charge of Cadets. All of us who
had not yet joined our ships were rounded up on the " St. Louis " after thellanding
had been madeg and, on the twenty-fifth of June, were sent to the ships we had fol-
lowed for so long.
lt took very little time to become accustomed to the new conditions, for we
were set to work in the routine at once, and went ahead doing things first and
finding out how to do them latcrg seeing more clearly each day that the most valua-
ble thing we had learned at the Academy was the art of bluffing. Life eertainly was
not all Skittles and beer during the ensuing two months. The ice machine had a
cheerful little way of going on strike at more or less regular intervals g the fresh
meat and butter vied with one another in strength testsg the flour took unto
itself win s Qle 's, to be strictly aecuratej, and silently stole awayg then, to cap t ie
climax the salt ran out making things seem fresher than new youngsters. How-
! y L
ever, even on a diet of hard tack and coffee, I think there was not a Ninety-nine
man who did not feel cheerful. No matter how badly things went, it was only
necessary to think of the practice cruise we might have taken, or of the West
Pointers spending the summer in camp, to feel that all our bad luck, past and to
come, could hardly overbalauce the present good fortune.
Wihen we arrived, matters were rapidly assuming a very serious aspect for the
Spaniards. Day by day the Army closed in, and the watchfulness on the ships grew
more strict. During the daytime our ships were drawn up in a semi-circle of
about two miles' radius around the harbor mouth, and at dusk the radius shortened,
until a rowboat could hardly have passed unseen between the ships. Three or
four steam launches, fitted as patrol boats, edged in so close that their crews could
often hear men talking on the beach, while now and then a shower of bullets would
fly past by way of greeting. All through the night one of the battleships lay
directly off the entrance. and kept its searchlight playing, making all that part of
the coast a new land of the midnight sun. Then the " Vesuvius " would slip in close
to send a couple of earthquakes whirring into the forts. Doubtless one must die,
but there is something disheartening in the thought of being scientifically blown into
eternity under the cold glare of an electric light. Occasionally there was a bom-
bardment to vary the monotony of the blockadeg the usual routine was: come on
watch at midnight, call all hands at 3.30 A.M., go to quarters at six, commence
firing at about 7.30. The gunners became too sportsmanlike to be content with
merely smashing a sand battery, so they confined their attention, as far as possible,
to improving the outli11e of Morro Castle. Flagstaffs and all projecting points were
carefully pruned off until the old ruin looked very symmetrical indeed. The
Spaniards owe a great deal to Morro. They carefully kept clear of its crumbling
walls, and the temptation to our gunners to neglect the prosaic modern works for
the pleasure of making the old stones fly, was almost irresistible.
For about a week our time was spent in standing watches, doing boat duty,

and spreading rumors 5 then the news came that, without reinforcements, our Army
would be unable to take the city, unless the Spanish fleet was put out of the way
first. Next day a transport arrived from Guantanamo, and a gunner's gang worked
on a set of counter-mines that she brought all of july 2, preparing for a celebra-
tion on the Fourth.
The next morning our daily routine began as usual, and there was every prom-
ise of a very quiet day, until about the time for forenoon quarters, when a lookout
on one of the battleships saw a stir well back in the harbor that nearly took his
breath away. The Spanish ships were coming out, and in less than no time bugles
were sounding the call to general quarters all through our fleet, while a suppressed
buzz of excited delight ran through the decks. A few minutes later the " Teresa "
came out at full speed and headed to the westward close inshore, followed in quick
succession by the " Oquendof' " Vizcaya," and " Colon," with the torpedo boats
" Pluton " and " Furor " bringing up the rear. lt was some few moments before
our ships could head to the west and start in pursuit, but they signified their inten-
tions by a storm of shells from every gun that bore. The fight is an old story, now
having been described so many times and in so many different ways that one more
variation would only add to the general confusion of ideas as to how many times
the " Vizcaya " and her consorts really were sunk. Indeed, it is hard to see how
anyone can write a detailed and accurate account of such a battle: there was such
a sense of unreality over it all, from the First gun to the sinking of the " Colon."
At first there was the confusion of turning and getting started in chase. Then
like a picture came the two long lines of ships steaming in parallel courses and quiv-
ering under the full power of their engines, while the roar of the guns deadened all
one's senses. For some time there was no apparent damage done on either side.
Men watched and commented upon the fall of the shells with a coolness which was
probably due to the overwhelming interest of the occasion, anxiety over the out-
come of the race outweiffhing any personal nervousness. ln a short time the
" l-'luton " and " liuror " gave up the struggle, turning back in a futile attempt to

regain the harbor, but they were riddled with shell, burning and sinking at the same
time. 'lfheir crews went down with them, except for a few of the stronger swim-
mers, who kept afloat for a time and screamed for help as we passed.
A moment later we saw thin streams of smoke oozing out of the " Teresa's "
ports. VVith wonderful rapidity they grew into huge black clouds as the ship
turned inshore and ran for the beach, while dusky flames began to appear aft,
driving the men up toward the bows as the ship went ashore. Her crew huddled
together there watching the sharks as the Ere crept up, until, one after another, they
jumped over to take their chances. Some of them were drowned, some eaten by the
sharks, and some reached shore safely, only to see the Hash of the Cuban rifles in

A few miles farther along' tl1e coast we saw the same maneuver once more re-
peated. This time it was the " Vizcaya " that gave up the fight and ran for the
beach. Only the " Colon" was left now, so the " Iowa " was ordered to stay by
the burning " Vizcaya " and to save her crew from the tender mercies of sharks
and Cubans, while the " Oregonf, " Texas," " New Yorkf' and " Brooklyn " con-
tinued the chase. For a long time it seemed as if the " Colon " stood some chance
of making at least a temporary escape, but her lead was gradually lessened until,
seeing that even our battleships were closing up, the Spaniards gave up hope. 'We
saw the last of the cruisers headed in and the battle was over.
Secure was sounded, and the American ships clustered around the " Colon "
as she lay on the beach, entirely uninjured to all appearances. Boats were sent at
once to transfer the prisoners to the " Resolute," which had just come up, heavy
hawsers were rigged to haul the stranded ship into deep water: and we had already

begun to wonder what her new name would be, when word was brought back that
her under water valves were broken, and that our prize would be afloat but a few
hours longer. Everyone felt it almost a personal loss, but there was no help for it,
and all that remained was to hurry the prisoners off as fast as possible. A short
time afterward the " Colon " slipped off the shelving beach, floating out into deep
water, and rendering the position of those of our own men who were aboard her,
as well as that of the remaining Spaniards, very precarious, for she had been filling
rapidly while she was aground. By this time it had grown dark, and to prevent a
catastrophe, which would have been a sad ending for such a day, the " New York,"
directing her searchlight on the waterlogged vessel, slowly steamed up and pushed
her on the beach so close inshore that it seemed as if one could jump out on dry land.
As the two ships met there was a faintly perceptible shock repeated two or three
times, but so carefully was it done that the " New Yorkis " ram bow did no damage
he was shoved well up out of danger, for some ti1ne at
least. An hour or so later all the prisoners were safe aboard the " Resolutef' and
our own men back on their ships, with numberless memcntos of the cruiser that
came so near being honored with a U. S. before its name. Gradually she settled
in the water, until just before midnight, when, with a final roll, she fell over on her
side, one harmless broadside pointed at the sky.

and thinking of the light as something that had happened long ago. Thin streams
of white smoke were still rising from the battered hulk of the " Vizcaya " as she lay
on the beach in ruins. Aboard her decks the scene was a terrible proof of the
courage with which the Spaniards had stood to their guns. Great holes were torn
in her sides and decks, and in the wreckage lay charred bodies in every conceivable
attitude of suffering. Farther along tl1e coast, on board the " Oquenclof, we found
that the door of the forward turret had been jammed by a shell so that the entire
gun's crew had been imprisoned. '.l'hen the tire had come and all those men were
slowly roasted as if in a steel oven. One can imagine how they must have fought
and struggled for a breath of air at the narrow crevice left by the door, but it is not
a good thing to think about.

have rendered it very interesting:

such a place for defense until he could sec the commanding points, the narrow

For the Navy, the Santiago campaign was iinished. Nearly all the fleet assem-

bled at Guantanamo to make prepara
ship, painting' ship, and provisioning ship from morning to night. There was a
good deal of work, but there was some amusement, which usually consisted in
playing whist, sometimes according to Hoyle-sometimes according to Alkali Ike.
There were also one or two social events in the lieet, strictly of the stecrage, by the
steerage, and for the steerage, when those who could sing' sang, and those who
couldn't made a joyful noise, while both classes had a good time. About this time
the " Texas " started north, leaving a pretty homesick crowd as she steamed out to
the tune of " Home. Sweet Home," played by the band on the flagship. At last,
just as we were making' final preparations for a trip across to Spain, orders came to
suspend operations, and a day or so later the news of peace reached us.
War was over, and no one was bloodthirsty enough to regret it. There was a
final blowout on the flagship by way of a peace jubilee, after which came a few
more days of waiting, and then, on Sunday morning, August 14, the " New York,"
" Iowa," " Indiana," " Brooklyn," " Oregon," and " Massachusetts l' picked up
their anchors in succession and stood out to sea, leaving Guantanamo bay without a
regret. The trip north was very uneventful. We rounded Cape Maysi late on
Sunday, changed the course to north, and next day were among the Bahamas get-
ting nearer and nearer home with every turn of the propellers. Barnegat light was
sighted late Friday night, and speed was reduced to prevent our reaching the Nar-
rows before daybreak.
In the morning we saw the low coast line of New Jersey stretching off on our
left, with Sandy Hook and New York harbor right ahead. Ily 8 o'clock we were
passing Sandy Hook, trying to make out the city through a light fog. Soon after
a few tugs and yachts began to appear, the latter decorated lavishly with bunting
in all forms and colors, and from that time on the number of craft of every descrip-
tion increased until it seemed as if one could go all over the bay by jumping from
boat to boat. As the fleet passed through the Narrows. the forts on Staten Island
fired a salute, accompanied by the explosion of some of the mines with which the
harbor had been defended. Rowboats put out from little slips and docks, coming
as close as they couldg harvor tugs and police boats puffed about fussily, giving
vent to their feelings with excited shrieks of their whistles, excursion boats with
cheering' masses of humanity clinging' to every inch of foothold circled aboutg
tire tugs and sailhoats, ferries and scows, everything' that would lloat was loaded
and overloaded with crowds of people wild with patriotic excitement. As the pro--
cession moved up the river, the crowds of shipping' grew more and more denseg
along the hanlc in Riverside l'arl4 one could not see a square foot ot' ground for

Hoxmm I5 SATISFIED.
Tm MULE is a beast. Mr. Gradgrind rightly objected to so defining a
horse: but a mule, and especially an army mule, is nothing else. .lt
would be hard to say how the mules were embarked on the trans-
r ports at Port Tampa, perhaps the teamsters succeeded in convincing
them that they were not wanted on the ships g if anything would have been effect-
ive that would. The disembarkation was the truly interesting part, however, for
the transports were well out from shore, and each animal being handled separately,
was given a splendid chance to show its individuality in the way of original sin.
The first one that was brought on deck was a limp-tailed mule. His head
drooped, his ears drooped, and evidently his spirits drooped, for he allowed the
slings to be adjusted without remonstrance, and when dropped in the water
quietly gave up the ghost after a few weak struggles. The next one, however,
cavorted out of his stall with a good stiff curl in his tail and fire in his eye. After
breaking loose and attempting to invade the cabin, smashing half a dozen camp-
stools, and damaging several teamsters, he was finally slung clear of the side. For
an instant he was overwhelmed with wrath and chagrin, then, stiffening out like
a rantankerous baby, slipped out of the slings, attempted to do the giant swing in
midair, and went down stern foremost with a mighty splash. Presently he re-
appeared blowing water from eyes, nose, and mouth, too disgusted to bray, and,
finding that he could not get back on board, started for the beach, which he reached
in safety. They used the slings on a few more of the brutes, but, finding that in a
game of force the mules came out ahead, decided to try strategy.
A long gangplank was rigged over the ship's side, so that
X it was about balanced on the rail. Then a mule was turned
Q0 rx EQ loose and every one tried to keep it away from the gang-

3 p- Hr demurely wagging his ears at the mboard end,and con-
---- A gratulating himself .on an easy victory.. but it was
.another case of pride before destruction. Half a
1-.Elf -,..-, dozen men grasped the end of the plank and raised
f' gl, fffglgvg p it until it formed a toboggan slide of rough splinters
gyfijyf i with a jumping-off place at the other end. As the
Q", "li 'TQ ll, slope became more decided, the mule sat down to
if-., , all' f 3 preserve his equilibrium, but, in spite of all efforts,
ff fi!! 'X i 15' he slowly started down, gathering splint-
,ll tlf' X W Q ew ters and momentum, until he shot over
new- I g, the side braying defiance, a very ani-
,QTTQX ,ggiqftf--1 miated pincuslnon. One other' plan was
ef Q L g 3 fiixiv '13 tried with great success. Leading blocks
' -"' were lashed at each side of one of the
big cargo ports and a good heavy rope led through them, so as to form a
loop at th-e port. A mule was then persuaded to come out to enjoy the prospect,
whereupon the loop of rope was raised around his counter Qby means of a long
polej and a crowd on each of the hauling parts of the rope gave a long pull and a
strong pull, converting the animal into an excellent imitation of the cow that
jumped over the moon.
ln time they were all landed, eit ier on IC e. C
the teamsters who, although weak from

VVCl'C adjusted for a trip to the front by
seasiekncss, struggled nobly to make our poor language meet the requirements of
the caseg and the long baggage train was started over the low-lying coast hills.
Everything went smoothly until they reached a little valley at the bottom of
which was a quagmire of the softest kind. The poor mules were half dead with
thirst and the smell of fresh water was too much for them. They just humped
their tails and bore down on the quagmire four bells, getting hopelessly stuck in
that Slough of despond before any one could prevent it. They drank until sat-
islied, and then the fun began with a mighty plunge for freedom, followed by
several more plunges, eacl1 of which served to stick them more firmly in the mud.
In a moment or two they began to get excited, and the whole drove of floundering
brutes set up a VVagncrian chorus of he-haws, with an obligato of smashing bread
boxes and rattling tinware, in comparison to which the sounding brass and tmkling
cymbal would have made a lullaby. Now and then one could hear a string of

sulphurous curses from some mule driver that fauly made cold chills run up am
clown one's back, but the mules clidn't mind. As we turned back to go to the ship
hich made them look more like centi-
pedcs than quadrupedsg tinware was scattered all over the place, and we heard a
final masterpiece of profanity from a teamstcr, followed by a heartsick wail:
" Kick, you gidewhcel -- -- -- -- --! Oh, swearin' ain't no useg it

The Second Class Banquet
.fig 28th day of August was rendered memorable
'ff spx .,,1of' 111 the annals of the history of ,Q9, for it ushered
,!f'?' X 73 Q, in tl1e long-looked-for second-class leave, a11d also
,W 1:3 N5 'Q' saw tl1e revival of that most ancient and fitting
.4 pl custom known as tl1e Second Class Supper. When
p A' 1 M 'NM the festive second classmen are wont to meet and
5 forget all their woes, past, prese11t, and future.
-NMi,',Nll I l, :-Q One entire deck of tl1e good lllll Raleigh was
,ill S all given up to tl1e assembled multitude from the
all ff,.l1!LlQMlll,Qli,l1l1llR4 M l' ranks of '99, Each well-salted middy wore a
,," i 5' 7 pleased smile, a suit of cit's clothes, and a. non-
Kfgipg j regulation cigarette, to say nothing of tl1e " Yaller
Iiid's " pipe and joey's ciga1'. Daddie carried a
highly pleased expression, for witl1 unremitting
N ' zeal a11d energy he had hounded and bullied each
recalcitrant member into writing a goodly row of tens a11d a five after his name in
the red book. But now their tro11bles were forgotten, a11d each would fain forget
such painful scenes.
XVhen the evening arrive , w nc
rived from the lobby clock, given the CC., a11d that tl1e trolley cars run every ten
minutes, the corridor commenced to twinkle with brass buttons, and soon all WC1'C

" Dickie l' had been forced to go home on account of family aliiairs, and to

unable to attend, owing to several engagements to appear in Boston as tl1e hero

The supper was one tiat wi o g g
it did, after the- antique diet of our summer's yachting cruise over the green, bilious--
looking waves of tl1e broad Atlantic. Every one, especially the members of the
Fat Men's Club. employed themselves in doing the disappearance act with the
" Peri de Garch " and the punch ci la Bonhomme Richard, etc., lllltll at about eight
t' moment came found it impossible for him to
nrler the tutelage of kind teachers, so absorbed had he
l 'll l 11 lin er fondly in our memories, coming, as
lzells it was decided to commence the ceremony of splicing the main brace. Every
one was in good form, having practiced on smaller and less important gear during
the day and evening.
Pinckney took a few rolling hitches around Hooker and the rest at his end
of the table, then shaking a double reef out of the quarter-deck of his dress jacket,
hoisted the signal for close action, which all hastened to obey.
The rest is a matter of history, which can be found in any authorized text-
book, such as " john Rfs Essentials of a Class Supper." I-Iow toasts were pro-
posed and responded to with such flights of eloquence, that the " pale, round
moon " was wholly eclipsedg and Neddie and Teddie and the rest founded a new
school of oratory and declamation, in comparison to which that of Demosthenes,
and such other back numbers, faded into oblivion like a glim behind the riHe-butt
when the stentorian breathing of the officer-in-charge is heard wafting softly over
the roof of the natatorium.
The fun was at its height, when something seemed to happen over in the south-
west, that entire end of the table being immediately obscured by dense clouds of
choking smoke. For a time it was impossible to ascertain the exact bearing of the
storm center. Soon the atmosphere was sufficiently cleared by the united efforts
of the F. A. F'.'s expert corps of smoke consumers, and the cause was discovered
to be the " Pig," who, in endeavoring to run under forced draft, without a suitable
tendency, had overheated his stuffing-box and had taken to the boats.
1-Ie was rescued by a life-saving crew composed of such hearts of oak as
" Sturdy " and " Simf and brought to by fanning him with dollar bills Cborrowed
for the occasionj. I-le soon declared himself to be all right, and Hooker relieved
the tension by a few mirthful remarks on the price of dress jackets. So ,Terry and
Della took a smile in celebration, and Daddie, merely from force of habit, pro'-
ceeded to take up a collection for a posthumous course.
Wasliiiigton is a quiet little town, and the citizens in the northwest quarter
having requested that their Sunday morning slumbers be not disturbed, shortly
before the hour of two the class yell was given, and the Second Class Banquet,
which had beenlooked forward to for so long, as marking the half-way resting-
place, was a thing of the past.
By next morning the class was separating to every State in the Union, but
each one still bears in his heart the memory of that night, which, above all others,
is stamped with the spirit of fraternity and good-fellowship. May we live to see

Tomb Goes to a Hop
' Q3 RDERS a dozen cabs and one American beauty, sends both to wrong
I place. After supper takes a hasty shave, cuts both ears and his chin,
forgets to sign hop liberty, meets maid at door, apologizes for being
le ' 'i"t " late, grasps her by the arm, and starts for the hop. The maid expos-
tulates, and he is finally convinced of his error. He then gets his partner and
starts for the hop on the run. Nearing sick quarters, he comes to and discovers
that he has no gloves. I-Ie cautions the girl to stand still until his return, rushes
up into a plebe's room, gets an armload of gloves, and returns in about an hour
They reach the ballroom at about the tenth dance. Tomb leads his girl into
the gentlemen's dressing-room and goes himself to the ladies' room, but is cor-
rected by the maids and watchmeu. Finally he starts for the receiving stand,
kicks over the Superintendent's palms, and forgets his girlis name. He bows
sweetly, however, then grasps his partner around the neck, and starts around the
room four bells. Everybody leaves the lloor, but Tomb continues to dance on his
girlis feet until the music stops, when he charges the punch bowl. After drinking
several quarts from the ladle, he mops his ruddy brow and starts to promenade.
Finally the band plays " I-Iail, Columbia." Tomb leaves his girl, rushes up to
sign hop liberty, and retires. The thought of his girl suddenly comes to him, he
utters his usual expression, " i -! 3' makes his toilet, jumps out the back
window, and sprints for the Armory. It is all dark. The watchman has saved the
rlav by taking his girl home.

Illl shades of night were falling fast,

1 "" A crowd of youngsters dressed in white,
ll VVho sang out in the lonely night-
" 1 s
Their brows were dark, their eyes all flashed,
And fierce they looked as on they dashed.
They took some luekless plebe asideg
As on his head he went they cried-
" Exelsior! "
At length they heard the warning call,
Then hack they all dashed down the hall:
The echoes of that word so dread
Still ringing through each plehe's poor head--
" Exelsior! "
Each day the progra1n's just the same,
But now the matter's getting tame:
A plebe gets callous on his head,
And who cares then how much is said,
" Exelsior? "

There was a young student of chess,

He plays all alone,
And never does bone,
But he gets a 2.5 none the less.
There was a cleansleever named Fox,
Who smoked things that come out of a
He smoked them at night,
And for lack of foresight,
The ship he struck wasn't the " Phloxf,
A greaser, they call him John R.,

For theories new,
Although it is true,

BURIAL Ol-' BIATH ASD SKINNY
The Burial of Math and Skinny
C ff mue on thc night of anuary twenty-seventh. In awe-stricken
"fren-r silence the motley mob was marshaled by Master of Ceremonies
Dugan, who proved his nationality by the natural manner in which he fulfilled a
policeman's duties. Then the march was begun to the strains of a most depress-
ing dead march played by the band, and the mourners passed through the ranks of
sympathetic, onlookers from one floor to another.
lfinally, the " dear diseased U were laid upon a catafalque erected at the edge
of the Pit. Almost overcome by emotion, the speakers spoke in few but fitting
words, and Chaplain Jerry read the following familiar burial service:
And here endeth the next lesson-Daniel, 2d chap., 5th verse.
We brought nothing into this world and we surely taketh it away.
The cit gave and the cit hath taken away 2.5lS. Blessed be the name of the
fl LL handsg bury the dead! "
Such was the call that brought us from our rooms at half-past
- I ' , -I .
W'e knoweth our end, and tie num JCI
l l ' of our days is one. that we have yet
before we live.
For man walketh on streets paved witi go c Q
and can tell not what exam. shall slay them.
And now, Beelzy, what are our chances? Truly our hope is in thee. Deliver
us from all whom we have bilged, and make us not a jest unto the wooden.
VV hen with us thou dost chasten man for " desire to star ": thou makest his
hair to consume away like as he were the Class President.
Citl Baldnobber! thou hast been our refuge from one semi-an, even unto
another. Tho' thou tu
Oh, Math, are as but a lifetime!
As it was in the end, will be in t ie Jegmn g

Now is Skinny to be lain with the dead, and become the nightmare of them
that are youngsters. lior, since by First Classmen comes the death, by youngsters
comes also the resurrection.
Now is come the end, when ye shall iave ce
grams, and even Notes on Girdersg when ye shall have put down all triangles and
l l livered up the Reciprocal Dia-
Behold! T shall show you a mystery. e
boueg in the frequency of an
W shall not all sleep, but we shall
electric wave we shall finish a whole book at the last
Then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written on the trees: Uh,
Skinny! What is that 2.5
? Oh, Math, Where is that 4.oo?
The sting of Math is unsatness and the vistory of Skinny is bilging. But,
thanks be to those who made us sat, and to our saviour, the See.
'l'herefore, beloved brethren, be ye up and boningg be ye all knowing, even
as the great and only ljailey.
Second Classnian that is born of Youngsterdoni hath but a long time to bone
and is .full of busting. ,lle goeth up to the board like a leaf and sitteth down like
a tree. lle eheweth ehalk as it were candy, and raggeth his mark from the bulle-
.ln the midst of .lleat it is X'Vinter.
,l. heard a voiee f1'O111 the seetion-room saying unto nie, " lt's all in the book."
Uh, 111OSlL learned and foolish Carnot, with whom do live the spirits of those
who depart henee, and with whom the souls of the fiends, after they are relieved
of the burden of bilging, are in sadness and misery. We give thee lod for the hard
probs. of all thy eager servants.
lt hath also been taught us by the Apostle lfanl not to be sorry, as men without
hope for those who playeth football.
Oh. Math, who by death didst take away the sting of death, grant unto
Skinny, thy Chief of Staff, so to follow in the way where thou hast been led, that
we may at length fall asleep in the same room with thee peaeefully, and awaken
after many moons.
Else what shall they do that are soaked by the friends of the dead? If the
dead rise not year after year, why are
they then soaked for the dead? And
why stand we in danger of bilging on
lf, after the manner of youngs-
ters. lf have fought with gravity at the
Skinny Lab., what advantages it me
if the dead rise not? Let the youngs-
ters laugh and grow fat, for next week
they getteth Skinny.
But, be not wise on your own
cuff: secret eoinmunion may corrupt
All zips are not equal zips, for, as
one quantity is the square of another,
ll so is one zip greater than another.
4! I We, therefore, eonunit these bod-
ies to the deep, looking for the gen-
l l , 1 ', ljli eral insurrection among the youngs-
At thy seeond coming in monstrous form to judge those we leave behind, the
sea will gladly give thee up. ,
Skinny to bone: Math to bust: Aqueous vapor to bilge.

At half-past eight he doth appear,
Fear's in the air the thinksj.
He promenades the long, cold hall,
His sword behind him elinks.
A door's ajar: he looks within-
Nothing' suspicious here.
Two men in white, rise in a fright f Pj
Their books lie seattered near.
But. when he's gone, oh my! oh my!
I1lis wrath no bounds would know,
Could he but see the motley horde,
That lurks in corners low.
They eome from out beneath the bed,
The wardrobes each held oneg
And chairs galore, behind the door,
Hold eaeh a 1nother's son.
I-le'll never know till this he sees.
That there was such a seene:
And, even then, how can hc' tell
Xkfhieh one of three we mean?

'PHE FLAG COMPANY QED DIVISION.,
Selections from Natural History
QTaken from a forthcoming work, now in press.j
' """' URKEY -Native to the wilds of the mountainous regions of Ken-
fl :Q "'- tucky. At about eighteen, migrates to central Maryland. This well-
.I!" lv known bird may be easily recognized by the ludicrous gobbling
" " ' ""' " sounds which it emits and which give to it the name of " gobb1er,',
and its tracks may be easily distinguished from those of other birds by their re-
semblance to some forms of the harmonic curve.
A peculiarity distinguishing this bird from all other species but one is that
it never inhabits trees. It is of a mild disposition unless attacked, when it becomes
very ferocious. Before migration, it feeds on mountain-dews, but afterward, dur-
ing the moulting season, it lives ahnost wholly on a mixture of pap, together with
about twenty ti1nes its volume of clear grease.
TOUCAN.-This very extraordinary bird is not one whit less interesting than
the pelican, its beak being, usually, extravagantly large, so as to attract general
attention. In some species, this beak is of such enormous proportions that it must
give the owner a perpetual headache to carry it, although the bird really handles
it with the utmost facility.
On the ground these birds get along by a series of hopping movements. They
are given to ascending trees with a series of jumps, having great fondness for the
l it t
to most branches of the highest trees. In such situations, they are on y go en o
descend by smearing the branches with midnight oil, and then only near the close
of the season.
PELICAN.-TlllS bird is remarkable in many ways. Its beak is said, by some,
not to be as large as that of the toucan, though it is a matter of much dispute. Its
' l I 'ffht band
plumage is far superior to that of the toucan, being marked by tiree mg 5
on its wings, while the toucan has but one.
VVI , the elican is maneuvering to show its beautiful plumage, it is, indeed,
ien c p
a beautiful sight. The bird is very clamorous. and is often heard to give a queer
jumble of notes, said, by some, to be singing. Although their beak is of such large
f' ' ' ' l nose to have a
proportions, they have a great dislike of any bird wlnch tiey supl
beak larger than theirs, and pelicans will surround and " mob " an unfortunate
toucan with great zest.
SNAKE.-Ill the lapse of time, the earlier habits of this class of animal have
been forgotten. 'lt is usually found coiled up in the tops of the highest trees, some-
times extending over several branches. It has special preference for Christmas
trees, never neglecting an opportunity to climb one. It is often found lying on
l C l f 'hess. onl moving about once in a quarter of an hour. It is largely
Joarcs 0 e y
nocturnal, and almost any night may be seen crawling around, feeding on bones.
PIG.-This familiar and much-maligned beast is, strange to say, quite often
made a pet of. One, which the Night Study Party at the Naval Academy has as a
pet, is particularly amusing. He is docile and may be taught. This particular one
has, however, absolutely no respect for his kind. On many afternoons, he may
be seen groveling around the Drill Ground at the Academy tossing a pigslcin about.
This pig is supposed to have come from Jerusalem.
Pigs are very much animated on seeing a light, and sometimes squeal very
loudly when the moon rises above a cloud. They live principally on spoon-bread
M0NIil'IY.11?Oll11d in the wildest parts of Texas, this animal is the subject
of a great deal of interest. lts disposition and polarized light are the two things
which scientists can never understand.
At one moment it is agreeable, its disposition being the most pleasant, then,
with the least cause, its agreeable manner entirely vanishes, it becomes excited,
raving, violent. llowever, if left alone, at this stage it soon reverts to its usual
temper, but, if further molested, becomes so violently excited as to be a menace
to the safety and sanity of the bystanders.
The sight of anything new excites its admiration greatly. One of these
unique animals, on a man-of-war cruising between Annapolis and lfunchal, once
saw some jelly-fish, and so audibly expressed his admiration of the new sight as to
highly amuse the spectators.
lXfl'osQUr'ro.-Tliis persecuted insect is said to thrive best in New Jersey,
although, on account of its changeable nature, scientists possess very little definite
information regarding it. ' '
It thrives best near large bodies of water, and, indeed, is said not to be the
same insect without the sea before it. lt sometimes acts in a very queer manner,
and, in hunting for things, employs a wonderful method of going about it, said,
also, to be employed by the variations of the species found in Hindustan. in Fly-
ing around. it sometimes flies so low as to lead some to think it has become lost,
but it invariably reappears in higher places.

r paratory School,
E have made the Work of preparing candidates for the Naval
Academy a .rpvczlzl rfzmjf, and our success has never been
equaled by any other school.
For a ywzzl' and zz hzzff We were the 0710! preparatory school
Hom which 11191 candidates entered the Naval Academy. In four
years, flzruv lzzzmhwf fzrzzffbrzjf-tqvo of our pupils were passed, as to
mental qualifications, at the U. S. Naval Academy. Ekiwz out of
f7Ul?f'UL' were passed on one examination, and tfzvuzziy-fix out of
tfzvvfzqy-.nfwfz on another. Efwfry ana Qfozzr cfzzss gf ah'w1z Il!l't'l'7lllft'J'

than' that wzfur.
Our pupils take high class standing after entering the Naval
Academy, tfwal'z2u out of the first thzrfawz in standing for the year,
in one fourth class, and the first t'zc1l.'1zqy-rzlv in another, having been
under our instruction prior to entrance.
We make it a point to give each pupil a great deal of individ-
ual 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 refer-
ences, 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 Colne from the highest sources.
We publish yearly the examination papers, as far as they can
be obtained, that have been given to candidates for entrance.

Th llCLUB A prominent cluhman says: "I sometimes drink a
e cocktail. In fact, I like a cocktail whcn, towards evening,
the fatigues of the day begin to tell on me. Some people like a cocktail as an appetizer, hut everybody who likes
a cocktail likes a good one. For a good while I have
kept in my house, whether in the country or in town,
the I-leuhlein Club Cocktails in bottles, more for con-
-f venience than anything else. I knew they were good
and l liked them, hut just why they were so good did
not oeeur to me until some one, speaking of the vast
quantities of these that the Messrs. Heublcin must
make in a 'hatch,' led me to this sort of reasoning:
llarkecpers and every one's self in mixing cocktails
necessarily cannot have a uniform and exact quantity
of ingredients in each one. A few drops more or less
of either ingredient greatly changes the nature of the
product.. ln a great lahoratory where quantities like
the Cluh Cocktails arc made at a mixing, each article is
accurately weighed or meastn'ed, and the compound
is following an exact fornmla. This insures that each
and every cocktail or hottie of cocktails put up shall
he precisely correct in its composition. Again reeall-
ing the fact that age is necessary to the proper hlend-
ing of all liquors, it occurred to me that these hottled
cocktails, hy the time they are used hy the consumer,
may have already been months or even years in
hottie, hence that the hlending must hc perfect.
Reasoning thus, I feel constrained to tell my friends
" about it, as I know a goodly number of them enjoy a
perfect cocktail. I have found the several brands
prepared hy the lleuhlein Brothers, lVIanhattnn,
' V ,,-- Martini, Whiskey, llolland Gin, Tom Gin, Vermouth
' and York, are excellent.

firmly united together with our Water-
proof compound in between. This com-
pound is different from any other water-
proofing compound which has ever been
placed upon the market, and contains
no rubber, cellulose or other ingredients
which are liable to oxidize or disinte-
grate, under any climatic conditions.
germ-proof, never moulds, never gets
sticky, does not peel, crack or rot. Wears
like iron. Resembles morocco leather
and costs half as much. The German

tered throughout in Pantasote. Used for
six years on Atlantic Steamship Lines,
also by U. S. Navy for boat cushions.

AN IDEAL RDUTE I3 IDEAL RESDHT
The Chesapeake 8a Ohio is in the advanced class of rail-
roads. 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. It crosses the very threshold of the world-celebrated
health resorts of Virginia and her sister State. lt 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 Station, New York, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and
Saturdays at 5.00 P.M., attached to the Chesapeake 8a Ohio
"F. F. V. Limited," and runs through without change via
Washington, arriving at 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
I-lot Springs Valley in the summer and fall months, will be no
less delighted with the subllmity of its environments and its
delightfully rare atmosphere during the winter and spring.
While a great deal of interest al Hot Springs centers in its
bath house, which has no equal in America, and in the flowing
springs of natural hot water, the curative qualities of which
are phenomenal, the high class of its patronage renders the
place attractive to those who do not visit it simply as a sani-
tarium. The New Homestead, unquestionably the finest hotel
in the mountain regions, is admirably well adapted to all
seasons. The heating arrangements are perfect, completely
ln control. and the ventilation of the rooms and corridors is in
thorough command, insuring pure, fresh air at all times with-
out draughts or fluctuations of temperature. Few hotels are
better fitted to supply every want and gratify every taste.
