And we've brewed
We've writ what's been
Said or been sung,

Curtailed and berung.
NVQ thought first
That we'd be romantic,
Then decided to hold
Down to facts,
For we feared,
Il' discretion were wanting,
We'd need some one
To sew up our backs.
And so, dearest public,
Accept our U Melzmgef'

Not heartless revile.

compilation of a college annual is a task of great responsibilityg one
'Q which is a test of the executive power, the patience, and the economy of
those directing the enterprise. Before undertaking this work the writers
consulted the best legal and medical authorities, as to their ability, and engaged
their services for the occasion of the issue of the book.
Care has been taken that all the pictures be noupareil-unlnistakable like-
nesses-whether of man or bird, that all the contents be of sufficient pedantry
to gratify the most learned member of the prep. department, and that the joax
be no hoax but fax. Since we first decided to issue a " '97 Melange " we have
been deluged with letters from "slam fy' lilerazyf rz'rrlei," begging the honor of
filling even ever so small a space, but so determined was the class to have the
book marked by oR1r:1NAI.ITv, that all such oliers were bravely refused.
The matter has been crralea' for the occasion, as noted by the star trade
mark following the articles.
Trusting that the humble effort of the class may be received with boun-
tiful-allowance and charity, we present our beloved standard in "Black and

PROF. M. VAYHINGER.
C HE success of any institution of learning is determined very largely by the
P86-3 character of her professors. In considering the merits of a college, the
Christian always asks the question, "Will my child be under Christian
professors?" Moores Hill College has always endeavored to make her influence
felt for the rzzgbl, and has chosen her faculties from the ranks of Christian edu-
cators. Among the many noble men who have served in this capacity in our
college, none have exerted a greater influence for good and have been held in
higher esteem than Prof. M. Vayhinger. '
Born in a rural district in Ripley County, Indiana, of noble Christian par-
ents, he early formed traits of character which have influenced his entire life.
At sixteen years of age he began teaching in the public schools, and after
some years of very successful work in this vocation, entered Moores Hill Col-
lege, where he pursued a thorough course of study. During his junior and
senior years in college, he served as a teacher in German.
So thorough had been his work in college that innnediately upon gradu-
ation he was elected to the Chair of Mathematics and German. In this capacity
he served seven years. During the last two of these years as Vice-President of
In 1890 he resigned his professorship and entered the North-western Uni-
versity to pursue a post graduate course. Three years were spent here in earnest
work in the university and Garret Biblical Institute. During the last two years
he served as an instructor in the university.
God has a purpose in the life of every man, and Vayhinger was destined
to become a servant of his Master as a minister of the gospel and Christian pro-
In 1885 he joined the South-east Indiana Conference of the Methodist Epis-
copal Church. During the summer of 1891 he was pastor of the Methodist Epis-
copal Chnrch in Vevay, Ind. The years of "'93 and 'Sl-1" he served as pastor
of the Mapleton Church.
W'Ci'Ei I I W
In September, 1894, he was again called by Moores Hill College to become
a member of the faculty. This time to the Chair of Philosophy and German,
which position he has filled with marked success to the present time.
Prof. Vayhinger has always been an active worker in the church. For years
he has been a teacher in the Sunday-school. For the year '95-'96, he was Sec-
retary of the Indiana State Iipworth League. He is now serving for the second
year as President of the Moores Hill District Iipworth League.
In March, 1889, he was united in marriage to Miss Culla Johnson. They
have two children living.
Prof. Vayhinger is a man who would be unwilling that a sketch of himself
should contain any direct words of praise. But for one wl1o has been his pupil
for years it is a clifiicult task to refrain from using words of the highest praise.
His noble Christian life, both in the school-room and as a citizen of the
village, is an' inspiration to all, and from his life is going out influences which
will clo much in molding the characters of many.
PROF. A. J. BIGNEY
PROF. ANDREW JOHNSON BIGNEY.
3.6 EDNDREW JOHNSON BIGNEY was born on a farm one and one-quarter
Cs! M41 miles north of Moores Hill, February 15, 1864. While a boy he worked
on the farm, and attended school at the cross roads school on the corpo-
ration line of Moores Hill.
,In the fall of 1880 he entered Moores Hill College, at which time Dr. J.
P. D. John was President, and O. P. Jenkins Vice-President and Professor of
From these two men he received his earliest impression of school life, and
they instilled in him a desire to take a special course and become a teacher.
Several winters l1e taught county schools, spending his summers at home.
In the summer of 1887, in company with Prof. C. W. Hargitt, now of Syr-
acuse University, he spent the time on Martha's Vineyard Island, studying the
marine life of that part of the Atlantic. He received a diploma from tl1e Martha's
Vineyard Sunnner Institute.
In June, 1888, he graduated from Moores Hill College, and took the Chair
of Natural Science the following year, on the resignation of Prof. Hargitt, to
whom was due the first inspiration to become a scientist and to devote his time
to the study and teaching of Biology in particular. I
Four years were spent here in this position, at which time he resigned to
pursue a post graduate course at Johns Hopkins University. At the close of the
first year he was asked to accept a position as first assistant in Biology in the same
university. Two years were spent here.
In June,1894, was called to the Chair of Science in Moores Hill College
again, which he still holds. '
He was married to Carrie E. Ewan, a member of the class of '94 of Moores
Hill College, September 2, 1896. '
At present he is Assistant Secretary of the Indiana Academy of Science
and State Secretary of the Epworth League of Indiana.
PROF. B. W. ALDRICH.
GJSQQLOIE take pleasure in mentioning the name of B. W. Aldrich, who holds
.Gi fa the Chair of Greek in our college. He is a favorite among the stu-
9 0 F dents, full of life and vigor, 'yet firm and rigid, and has the faculty
of drawing out the very best that is in tl1e student.
He has been with us since September, 1394. His work has been felt as
a power, not only in his department but also in- the Young Men's Christian
Association, in which he is now serving a third term as President.
Prof. Aldrich- was born at Kenosha, Wis., March 26, 1866. In 1870 his
parents moved to Providence, R. I., and there he began his school life. After
his primary education he spent three years in the celebrated "English and Class-
ical School" for boys.
In the winter of 1880 he entered the preparatory department of Hillsdale
College, and pursued his work there until June, 1887, when he completed the
classical course and received the Bachelors degree. While he was much inter-
ested in mathematics and took the maximum amount, he early formed a pref-
erence for the classics. He gave himself time to do his work thoroughly, and
at the end of his course received the " D, W. Martin" prize, which is awarded
each year to the graduate attaining the highest rank throughout his course.
In September, 1888, he began his work as teacher in the Montclair Boys
School at Montclair, N. J. The next year he was called to a more advanced
position in the Throgg's Neck Boarding School at Westchester, N. J. He then
returned West and accepted a professorship in Oakland City College, Indiana,
where he remained four years, from thence he came to Moores Hill College.
He has spent a number of summers in study and travel, one year pre-
paring himself to teach French.
NVhile teaching in the East he was also studying for the M. A. degree.
In addition to his work in German, in college, he took a course under Prof.
IC. T. Bacon, of Hashronch Institute, Jersey City. 1
The M. A. degree was conferred upon him by Hillsdale College in june,

DEDICATED TO THE FACULTY.
Extract from XXV book of Homer-'s Iliad.
fc, Arose to speak and towering tall begang
G10 "This night we call a council ofthe gods
In care of mortals, to punish their high pride.
XVhole hetacombs on altars they have laidg
The sable fumes in wafted spirals rise
And bring their hateful odors to the skies.
And men and maids are nightly promenading,
In frenzied zeal their mutual love persuading."
Thus spoke the expounder of Mental and Moral didaetics.
Then answered Mars in wordy zeal contending,
"Is this the brotherhood of man I pray,
That is consuming eggs in such a way?
Then we must mount the winds and quench their tire,
Make students tremble and whole hosts retire."
IIe said and sat. Then comic Conius rose.
"Oh, had my wisdom known this dire event-
XVhen to grim I'luto's gloomy gates I went,
I'd then have stopped their promenading glory
By telling to each elass a pointed story."
Old Nestor rose in speedy haste revealing
His thoughts of mortal's disobeying feeling:
"High reaching Zeus has made his rules too binding,
For restless spirits plot in much confining"
To this Aeneas smiling bowed consenting,
Ancaeus too with subtle words commending.
Then struck Euturpe soft her golden lyre,
' Arousing all the lesser deities' ire.
Up leaped young Cupid, his ears out sticking farg
"This is no way to soothe the gods of war.
'Tis time to part--Aurora now is waking."
Each bowed to Zeus-the great Olympus shaking,
Each went his way to rule contending mortals,
And silence brooded o'er the warlike portals.
SKETCH OF MOORES HILL.
QIZZQHIE original village plat of Moores Hill is said to have been laid out by
F555 Adam Moore and Andrew N. Stevens. The records show that in 18350
Di' lots were surveyed on the land of Adam 'Moore and Andrew N. Stevens,
by Nathaniel L. Squibb. Additions were made in 1344, '45, and '-17. Moores
Hill is beautifully located in the western part of Dearborn County, in Sparta
Township, forty miles west of Cincinnati, on the Baltimore and Ohio South-
The early settlers consisted of a munber of excellent families from the
Stateof Delaware and the eastern shore of Maryland, among whom were Adam
Moore after whom the village was named, John Dashiell, Charles Dashiell, and
Ranna Stevens. These men and their families gave a moral impress to society
in this part of the country that has been permanent and valuable. No part of
our State maintains a higher standard of morals, and no commfunity has been
less cursed with intemperance and other vices. The village now noted for the
moral and literary tone of its society, owes its name to the following blunder:
Mr. Moore had erected a mill driven by horse-power in its vicinity. It occurred
to some of the early settlers that it would be a good idea to establish a post-
oFfice in the vicinity of the mill, and accordingly a petition was sent to VVash-
ington asking for the establishment of a post-office at Moore's Mill. The Post-
master General mistaking the M for an H located the oFlice at Moores Hill.
As tl1e change was satisfactory to the people, the name of the office remained
From a pioneer settlement grew a l1au1let, and'from a hamlet a good-sized
village, until in 1850 Moores Hill was a thriving and industrious town. The
first merchant in the settlement was Samuel Hearn, who it is thought was
engaged in business as early as 18228. Obed Bailey, David Brooks, John C.
Moore were merchants early in the history of the village. The most extensive
imlustfy of tl1e village was that of the cooperiug business, which was carried
on for fifteen or twenty years by john C. Moore, beginning in 1830.
The present flourishing Methodist Episcopal Church is the outgrowth of a
class that was organized in 1818 at the cabin house of Moses Musgrove. The
first house of worship erected by the society was built in 1829, and is still stand-
ing near tl1e public. school building. The second building was much larger,
built of brick, and stood on the site of the present school building. The present
large edifice, which was built in 1871, stands on Main Street and nearly in the
center of tl1e town. From the organization of the church until 1838 the charge
was an apppointment on the old Lawrencebnrg circuit, at wl1icl1 time Wilming-
ton circuit was formed, and the charge became attached to that circuit. The
Moores Hill Church became a station i11 1851, with Asbury Wilkinson as pastor.
The regular Baptist church was organized at a school-house in Ripley
County. The members of the church received letters of dismissal from Wash-
ington church. In 1852 the society built a church on the land of Mr. Justice,
which served as a place of worship until 184515, when the building situated on
the corner of College street and South Broadway was erected.
Moores Hill College was founded in 185-l, through the efforts of John C.
Moore. School opened in 1856, with the Rev. Samuel R. Adams as President.
To President Adams and his wife, Mrs. Hannah P. Adams, most of the
early prosperity of the college was due. This institution is a monument to the
intelligence and Christian liberality of John C. Moore, one of the sons of Adam
Moore, the original proprietor of the town, Since the founding of the college
the interests of the people have been centered mainly in the institution. When
we consider what has been accomplished by those who have gone out from our
college, we do not question why the interests of Moores Hill people are firmly
centered in this institution. Our school was founded with the idea of its becom-
ing a power and blessing to not only the town, but to all who have been per-
mitted the privilege of spending a time within her walls.. We have never been
disappointed in her record, for she has never fallen below the mark. Her stu-
dents leave her halls showing the desired advancement intellectually and spirit-
The village continues to be a prosperous town, well adapted to the needs
of an institution. of learning. Improvements are continually being made, and
a more desirable town in which to locate cannot be found.
THE COLLEGE BELL.
Far almove the spreading forest trees,
That east upon the campus, cooling shade,
Within its tower, old and much decayed,
Alxides the ancient College Bell. Its peals
Call forth the literary devotees-H A
In ringing tones that regions far invade-
To join thc earnest students cavalcade
Marching on to capture high degrees.
That urgent sound does oftentimes impart
To loitering souls, a zeal that wit revives --
And we remember all as we depart.
Can we forget while memory survives?
Oh! Giithful Bell! Ilow sad each senior heart
As now the hour of our farewell arrives!
THE PLACE OF WHISPERS
Have you heard of the place of whispers,
XVhere silence forever reigns
Save those ghostly, rustling, whispers,
Like the drops upon the panes.
There's a goddess in the palace of whispers
She rules with an iron sway,
But she cannot stop those whispers,
Nor drive them all away.
But you may hear those ghostly whispers 5
'Twill take but a moment to exploreg
You may see tl1e place of whispers
If you hut open the lilmrary door.
REV. J. H. DODDRIDGE..
gQLlQ'iIiX'. J. H. DOIJIJRIIJGIQ, an ex-President of Moores Hill College, was
born and reared on a farm in XVz1yne County, Indiana. Here he devel-

life. He entered the first preparatory class in old Asbury, now DePauw Uni-

the best charges in the Conference. He is now pastor of the College Avenue
Methodist lipiscopul Church, Bloomington. Ind.
PROF. CHARLES W. HARGITT, PH. D.
HE subject of tl1is sketch is a native of Indiana. Reared on the farm,
56 his early educational opportunities were such as the village schools of
the time afforded. Later residence in Indianapolis afforded hiin the ex-
cellent trainiug of the city high school, in which was done the chief work of
preparing for college. He entered Moores Hill College with the class of '77,
and though compelled to drop out occasionally to earn funds for further pros-
ecution of his course, was yet able to carry forward the regular work, and .grad-
uated with honors with his class.
After graduation he was received into the South-east Indiana Conference,
and for several years was engaged in pastoral work, devoting at the same time
considerable attention to advanced studies in science. For the purpose of more
thoroughly perfecting himself in these studies he became a resident graduate
student in the Boston University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
in the latter of which he was assistant in the biological laboratory. Later he
also studied in the Indiana University and in the marine biological laboratory.
During' 1891-4123, he was assodiate director and lecturer in the biological labo-
ratory of the Brooklyn Institute.
In 1891 Prof. Hargitt was promoted to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy
by the Ohio University.
In 1885 he was elected to the Chair of Natural Sciences in l1is alma mater,
which position he resigned in 1888 to accept the Chair of Biology and Geology
in Miami University. During his incnmbency of three years in this position
the department acquired a distinction which it had l1itl1erto not known. A new
biological laboratory was built, and the department provided with an equipment
unsurpassed i11 some respects in the State.
In June, 1891, Dr. Hargitt was unanimously elected to the Chair of Biology
in Syracuse University, which he continues to fill at the present time, and in
which his work has been 110 less marked than in the former. During the year
1894 he was given leave of absence for travel and study in Europe, most of
which time was devoted to investigations in the renowned Zoological station of
Naples, some of the results of which have since been published in the station
" Mlttll6lll1llg6ll.,, During this time occasion was taken to visit and inspect the
scientiiic equipments of leading universities in Italy, Germany, and England.
Dr. Hargitt is a 111ember of various learned societies, among which are the
Indiana Academy of Sciences, the American Ornithological Union, Fellow of the
American Association for the Advancement of Science, etcfli
In 1877 he was married to Miss Susan E. Wood, daughter of the late Dr
Enoch G. Wood, of Indiana, for many years the President of the Board of
Trustees of Moores Hill College.

PROF. JOHN H. T. MAIN.
QQZQFGQQBOIIT the year 1872 a young man from Ohio entered Moores Hill Col-
lege. He was destined to become one of the brightest stars of this
' institution. This young man was john H. T. Main. He was a careful
student, and always ranked high in his classes. In 1876 he received the degree
of Bachelor of Science. After this he taught in the public schools of Versailles
and Moores Hill, serving as superintendent in each.
In 1880 he received the degree of Bachelor of Arts in Moores Hill College.
He was immediately elected professor of Ancient Languages, and continued in
this capacity until June, 1888. During the last three years of this time he was
also Vice-President of the college. Prof. Main was a profound student a11d a
very inspiring teacher. He impressed himself very deeply upon all his students.
No teacher ever left Moores Hill College who had so completely won the hearts
of all those who had come under his instruction. Memory is still fresh with
pleasant remembrances of his inspiring words in the recitation, chapel, and in
social life. A
In September, 1838, he entered johns Hopkins University as a graduate
student in Latin, Greek, and Sanskrit. He soon ranked l1igl1 in the univer-
sity, not only among the students, but also with his teachers.
18851-'SPO he was Associate in Ancient Languages in the WfJIl1Hll,S College
of Baltimore. In 1891 he was elected Fellow of Greek in johns Hopkins Uni-
versity. This is an honor won only by merit. In June, 1892, he received the
degree of Doctor of Philosophy from that university.
In May, 1892, he was elected Carter Professor of Greek in Iowa College
at Grinnell, Ia. This is one of the oldest and most prominent institutions in
the West. This position he still holds. Dr, Main has been very successful in
this position. I-Ie is one of the strong men in Greek in the West. He is a
credit to any institution. Moores Hill College is proud of such a man, and feels
honored to have one of her sons occupying such prominent positions, and rank-
ing so high in scholarship.
HZVZQIQIQY few persons ever stop to think how much they 'owe to their fellow-
ll men. liven a hasty examination into the relations existing between
man and man will reveal the fact that all we have, all we are, and all
we expect to be-everything depends largely upon the actions of others. We
are debtors " both to the Greeks and to the Barbarians: both to the wise and to
Especially true is this of the college graduate. Many people enter college,
remain six or seven years, go out thinking they have conferred a great blessing
upon their alma mater. It is true that a college is anxious for students, and will
offer many inducements to worthy young men and women, but the FAVOR is
almost altogether on the part of the college. The student pays a very small part
of the money required to manage an institution. To the student there 'come
income from endowment, use of buildings and apparatus, gifts from friends, edu-
cational collections, and a thousand other blessings all as free as air. In View
of these facts, how easy it ought to be for every student to cultivate a feeling of
good will, of friendship towards the institution that has stood for him as a light-
house. How easy it ought to be for him to remember with encouraging words,
special acts, frequent returns, those who are still struggling on to maintain the
honor and dignity of an institution that is the pride and glory of .Methodism in
Reader, are you a graduate of " Moores Hill College," remember the institu-
tion that made you what you are. Are you a " Sigourneanj' remember we are
still plucking laurels from mountain tops. Are you a " Philo," remember we are
still shouting " Excelsior." Are you a " Photo," we are still preparing to carry
the light that shall lighten the world.
In conclusion, we plead for your good will, your prayers, your help. VVe
ask that wherever you are, whatever you may be, wherever you go, you be loyal
and true to flloorrs H1'!! College.

MOORES HILL COLLEGE ALUMNI.
T would be very interesting and desirable to have an aceount of the Work
of all those who have ever been students of Moores Hill College for any
Q ff length of time. To know the value of the college to the world it would
be necessary to have this record. But no such information is at hand. Only
those who are permitted to take tl1e honors of the institution eau be kept in
knowledge. Moores Hill College has had two lumdred and thirty graduates
during her existence. Mrs. Jane Kahler was the first to finish the course
in the year l858. She did not become a minister herself, but what is often
equally influential, a minister's wife. She is itinerating in southern California.
The classes at first were small, and for several years during the Civil War there
were no graduates, as entire classes left i11 defense of their country. The class of
'62 and '64 were all ladies, as the men were at the, front. A Christian student is
a patriotic one. One of the best defenses for any land is a Christian college.
Liberty-loving people must stand by the Christian college as by their very life.
Nineteen of our number have fought their fight and finished their course
and-we trust have received the pl.1udit, " Well done, good and faithful servant,
enter into tl1e joy of thy Lord." .
Forty have entered the ministry. In addition to this number many who
have taken a partial course have become ministers. Two of the alumni are pre-
siding elders in the Indiana Conference. The Methodist Episcopal Churches in
this part ofthe State are largely supplied by Moores Hill College men. Au
educated ministry is one of the most imperative demands of the times. The
life of the church depends largely upon it. The educated minister comes from
the Christian college. Hence the church must maintain these institutions that
she herself may live. The Christian college is the hope of tl1e church.
Over sixty graduates have chosen the profession of teaching, and are doing
successful work in the public schools and different colleges. Five hold positions
now in our alma mater. The law illlfl medicine have dl'il.YVl1 from our ranks
also. While the majority of the alunmi are found in these four professions,
yet twenty other vocations are represented among our graduates. The aim in
Moores Hill College is to develop men and women fitted for life in any realm,
so they become successful farmers and business men as well as professional men.
The influence of the college has been felt greatly in Indiana, yet it has by no
means been confined to this State. More than a third of the States, besides
the District of .Columbia and China, contain Moores Hill alumni within their
"Hurrah for Moores llill, :t college good and great,
A blessing to the sons of men, an honor to the Stateg
ller treasures are not gold, but fairer, better still,
Are loyal hearts to God and home. Hurrah for Moores Hill!7'

" PICTURE WRITING."
Not tedious nor lengthv,
lVith the rolling of the winters,
With the huclding of the spring time,
And the mellowing of the autumn,
Grow the reminiscent musings
Of' the College days long finished.
Happy days of careless freedom,
Days unfettered hy the worry
And the weight of growing duties.
Times ol' frolies and ol' egg roasts:
Times of stolen, sweet communions
llnder shade of' friendly evening.
Sereuades and corn pops, ol' which f
None but students were the wiser.
Skating parties on the ieepond,
When the iey cutting northwind
Strove to crack the hold round Cheeks,
llut was hallled, and sueeeeded
Only in painting red cheeks. redder,
And in adding fire to bright eyes.
Sausages and crackers, cheese and apples,
Oh! what feast was e'er more relished, p
Who e'er quaffed from crystal goblet
With more zest than drank the skaters,
From a hole eut hy the skate heel.
Midnight gatherings in some room 3
Mnfflcd voices, smothered laughter,
Innocent prank or mischief' pending-
Sometimes 'twas not safe to leave one's clothing
ln his room, or wear a class pin
On his eoat, some hright eyes or nimhle
Fingers took it for a roast or joke.
Young man wooing, when at last
He persuades himself to leave the side
Of her who proves a fair enchantress,
Finds the door resists his efforts,
For a clothes line has mysteriously
Drifted from its 'eustomed moorings.
Chapel, which resounded with the
Ilearty, loyal yell, and the song,
" Hurrah for Old Moores Hill."
The old library, silent sanetum
Where humau voice was never heard.
Ah! these are only spices lended
To the years of building
Structures which support our
Fsefulness among our fellows.
Firm foundations lasting till
The superstructures resting on them
Are completed, ready for the approval
Of the great aud Master Workman.
Spices which have lent their fragrance
'Moug the cast off garinents of the past
Which, though laid aside,
Arc cherished with treasures, valueless
To others, hut to us of untold worth.
Oh! the dreamy recollections,

HISTORY OF SENIOR CLASS.
PSUQI-IE task the historian has before him is not to "give to airy nothing a
local habitation and a name," but to rehearse to you a story such as
might have inspired the pen of a Homer or a Virgil.
"For it tells of the wondrous achievements
. Of our ninety-seven's career."
The '97's were a quiet set of Freshmeng not that tl1ey were lacking in class
spirit, but the outrageous manifestations of '96 put all show of class spirit into
bad repute. Then also there flowed in our veins a large per cent. of preacher
blood, a heavy ballast in the sea of class spirit.
Stirred by an infusion of fresh blood, we entered our Sophomore year witl1
a loud, hair-raising war-whoop that made even '96 turn green with envy, if she
ever was any other color. Then it was that our motto "Now" was adopted,
that terse, concise, sententious word, the enemy of procrastination, and 'f Zip,
Siss, Boom" began to echo along the corridors of time. Then also was com-
pleted that great monument of the spirit and push of '97, the far-famed flower
bed. Ma11y were the pleasant hours of toil spent in completing this stupendous
work. "And lo, when it was finished, while men slept, an enemy came and
sowed tares and went l1is way." But the evil one did not enjoy tl1e fruit of
l1is deed, tl1e tares were removed, and for many years the air around was sweet-
ened with the rarest perfumes of flowers. I
Some tin1e in the year '96 occurred that reception of the Seniors, which was
anticipated Cby the Seniorsj and heralded Cby the samej as the greatest social
event of the year. But rejoicing gave place to mourning. VVhen tl1e '96's
returned from the scene of gayety to their rooms "there was a voice heard-
lamentation and weeping and great mourning-'96 weeping for her clothes, and
would not be comforted because they were notf' Well did the poet of '97 voice
their grief in the lyric e11ding--
"Oh, could I speak the wondrous rage
That boiled within my manly breast,
When missing those clothes --not my best-
I swore and cried O sacrilage!!!!"
One of tl1e most memorable red-letter days of " '97" was the day on which
we did not take "Till" on a picnic excursion. In fact the memory of that day
will live when other pleasures have long since faded away.
One bright night tl1e class went star gazing, and incidentally practiced a new
yell. We sat on the gnarled roots of a lmge elm, and as the poet says:
"There was a sound of devilry by night,
And all went merry as an egg roast."
The next morning the yell was given while faculty and students gazed with
open-faced amazement, too surprised to interrupt with the usual chorus of " horse
Ah! ever to be remembered is that bright morning when we rushed the
'98's, scattering desolation and broken chairs in our lpath. We were some
thousand inferior in number, but had the faculty not stopped our triumphal
Seldom has a cloud overshadowed the sky of '97. Never has dissension
entered her ranks, but o11e shadow has crossed her path when the grim angel of
death entered our band, and took one of the brightest and best of our before
happy circle, which then numbered thirteen.
We have passed the hey-day-Freshman year-which is the spring-time of
the student's life, when all is fresh and verdant, the balmy days of the Soph-
omore, the June of the college life, when brains are said to sprout to an alarm-
ing size in a single night, the hot August days of Juniordom, when one looks
with envious longing upon the places of the favored Seniors. We areuiabout
to bid a regretful farewell to thehalcyon autumn of our last year, and enter
the cold, long winter of earnest life. We shall not mind the cold. From the
greatest to the least of us il: our hearts are warmed with the spirit which has led
t5'Morrow to Clark.
us successfully through four years of trials. We leave tl1e Juniors to imitate
our bravery and dignity, the Sophs to vainly copy our wisdom witl1 lengthy
words and owlish symbols, while the Fresh-men miserably travesty our spirit and
As the time draws nigh when "well say our last farewell," a shade of sad-
ness sometimes comes upon us. Amid all the gayety and enjoyment of a Sen-
ior's life there always lurks this premonition of a coming sorrow. But after
all the Senior enjoys the cream of the college life. Freshmen admire him from
afar, Sophomores emulate his dignity, Juniors treat him with respect, while the
faculty receive 11im with choicest entertainments.
As commencement day approaches our sun is slowly setting in the West.
Wliexl its last lingering ray has disappeared darkness may seem to be about us,
but only for a time, for it is now the dawning of our real life when our sun
rises 'only to set when life is done.
The sun has hid his scorching light
In the cooling western sea,
I-las fled at the dusky approach ol' night,
In a glory of sunset sky.
The sky is all purple, and amber, and red,
Is banded with golden bars,
NVhere the sweetest rays of Hesperus are shed,
Most beauteous ol' evening stars.
l muse as I watch the fading glow,
My thoughts are of the past,
It's pleasing lllClIl'I'lCS come and go
While the sun is sinking fast.
My college days at last are o'er,
I must enter the world again,
O golden days that are no more!
I wish I could live them again.
The ling'ring sunlight softly wancs,
And night is dimly coming on,
As bound in l'aucy's fairy chains,
My mind to dreamy revery runs.
While in the stillness softly call
The nameless sounds of night,
In dreamy sleep my eyelids fall
With the moonheams coming light.
The dawn in glistening mantle clad
Appears with dewy tread,
The East is all amber and glittering red
XVhere the blazing sun-god raises his head.
And the silver light of Apollo doth wane,
Most beautiful morning star,
When the flaming sun-god begins his reign
With l1is shining steeds and ear.
I thought as I watched the coming glow
My life has commenced at last,
It will not he all sunshine I know,
But my sun is rising fast,
Though shadows come and hopes may go
Thcre'll be a bright setting at last.

COLORS : Orange and Black.
f'.D,Gf?i',,OW is the accepted time," " now is the day of salvation." Such is the
H1 E VD spirit of the motto of tl1e class H Ninety-seven."
Q MN The past, with its opportunities for good and evil, is beyond our con-
trol. A merciful Providence has placed the kindly curtain of obscurity between
us and the future. The present alone is ours. What we do rzoa' determines our
lives and characters. "There is a tide in the affairs of men, which taken at the
flood, leads on to fortune: omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shal-
lows and in miseriesf' The pause between the ebb and flow of tl1e tide is very
brief. We must act without delay if we would be borne onward to the greatest
liefggfhtsf' Promptness is a cardinal virtue of the business world.
A child insufficiently clad in the middle of winter may freeze to death, a
starving body may perish of hunger, a soul may pass to eternity without the love
of Jesus to lighten the way, because we have put off some deed of cl1arity. " He
who gives promptly gives thrice." It is often said a lost fortune may be re-
trieved by industry and economyg lost health by treatment and obedience to the
laws of nature: lost fame, at least to some extent, by repentance and works
meet for repentance, but lost time never.
The world hath need of ripe scholars and profound thinkers, but these men
may be instruments of evil rather than good unless also possessed of pure hearts,
and even then the good they accomplish will be a minimum, relatively speaking,
if there be absent the strong, vigorous will that acts now. It is easy to say I
will make this sacrifice, or do that disagreeable duty in the future: it is hard to
do it NOW.
May this word be inscribed not only on the beloved emblem, but deep and
eternally within the heart of each member of the class.

THE CLASS OF '98,
kgkj-"UIlING the fall of '93 the present Junior class was organized, and from
76 pq that time till this the same organization has given evidence of its ex-
9 5 istence, not by fitful displays of class spirit, but by its steady, onward
course, and tl1e defense of its rights against all opponents.
In glancing through the record of recent events in college life, we notice
that it was the class of '98 which put a check to the display of athletical ability
indulged in by the '9G's as Seniors, and again when the present Seniors, aroused
from their usual quiet slumber, attempted to rescue a beloved member from
huxnbler ranks. It was this same class that so easily withstood their rush and
sent them back sadder but wiser. We find in the ranks two who are already giv-
ing proof of their usefulness by acting as instructors in Latin and English, and
surely the Juniors may well be proud of their professors. '
At present the class consists of six classical, three scientific, and two musical
students, each with untiring energy striving to reach that exalted position in life
in which they can answer " Semper Paratusf'

to take tea witl1 her one evening. How glad were tl1e hearts of Paul a11d Cyrus

SOPHOMORE CLASS HISTORY.
S N the eighth day of the ninth mouth of the year eighteen hundred and
iii ninety four, was the beginning of the well-known anabasis of the won-
Qip derful class of '99, Now these are the journeys of the members of the
class of '99, who went forth out of the land "Know-Nothing," under the hand
of Dr. Martin. And these are their goings out according to the commandments
of the faculty. And verily, I say these are their journeys according to their
goings out. Now it came to pass as this mighty army marcheth forth through
the long and lonely valley of " Prepdom," those people who inhabiteth the
promised land, into which the army of '99 hopeth to march, beholdeth the bright
banners fiying and heareth the mighty shouts. But lo! thc '99's were too far in
the distance for the inhabitants thereof to distinguish the " Color " of the banner
or to hear the words of the " Cheer." But it came to pass when they had jour-
neyed nine great circles of the revolving months they were in plainer view of the
promised land, and here they pitched during the hot season.
Lo! on the ninth clay of tl1e ninth inonth of the year eighteen hundred and
ninty-five, Dr. Martin spake these words unto the army, saying, t' XVhen ye shall
come into the land of ' Know All,' this is the land which shall fall unto thee as
an inheritance, tl1e land of ' Know All,' even the coasts thereof, if ye shall
drive out all the inhabitants therein." And it came to pass that they departed
with their staffs and blazing colors, and they strove to drive out the inhabitants
tliereof, and to quite pluck down all their high places. And even the bridge was
blazing with color. After a few victories the army did collect, and there was
much feasting, and rejoicing, and merry making, for they had made their wonder-
ful works to be remembered, and the faculty was gracious and full of compassion.
And again the time cometh for the army to encamp, and they pitched during
the summer months. Verily I say unto you when the time draweth near to
march there was much rejoicing that again they could proceed. And without the
loss of a single mnnber they armed themselves for the future struggles. -
Now it came to pass that they departed into the wilderness, and there was a
great ingathering of " nuts " and " persim1nons" for the winter use. Then the
mighty struggle went on among the armies of '9il's, '98's, Z1.l1Cl,97,S. And lo!
a piercing voice spake these words, saying, " Ye have contended long enough
for this land. Turn you and go into your tents and prepare your wonderful
speeches." And verily, verily, he said: " Whosoever of the armies shall prepare
the most wonderful and powerful speeches, the same shall inherit the land of
' Know All' for an inheritance."
And lo! did the 1900's prepare the place for the contest, by bringing gar-
lands and beautiful birds from afar. Then it came to pass that this wonderful
army Cflllle to the place of contest, and, indeed,' they spake as no army ever
spake before. And since they were indeed victorious they took possession of the
land, and they lifted their mighty voices in the chorus.
" Then hurrah, hurrah, hurrah, hnrrah
For the class of '9ED5
Hurrah, hurrah, hnrrah, hurrah
For the class of 'HEL
With C2lI'llCSt zeal and purpose true,
You'll find ns right in line,

ALL ON ACCOUNT OF A TIE
It is said,
Now, 'tis only a rumor,
So do not repeat it I pray,
Iilspeeially small ones, are fond
OI' giving their brothers away.
There's a house,
or dimensions pretentious
XVluich near to our college stands,
Are well housed and boarded
And bound by aII'eetion's bands.
Not uncomely, abode there,
The pride of the landlady's heart:
In spite of his mannna's affection,
Had been pierced by a cupid's dart.
XVith adamant power,
Had prisoned him at her side,
And his joy
Was almost ecstatic
That she in that house did abide.
As they stood on the stairway,
Reluctautly saying good night,
In silence approached them,
For blinded with love was their sight.
H OI1! Oh!
I saw it! I saw it! "
She eried, laughing in mischievous glee.
" I saw you 3
You kissed her, I know itg
I'n1 going to tell. Oh, goodee!"
" Come here I "
Cried the maiden, in anguish,
" If you tell that you'Il tell a lie,
Looked so in the darkness,
I was iryiug lo slraigfhlevz his lie."
ODE TO FATE.
What is this cheerful chat er,
This lnnn of stnrlents' tnlkg
This noisy erowfl,
XVith lungliter lonfl,
Upon the college wulk.
Some lmoy has slipped znnl fallen
In trying to euteh his " Midge 5 "
In lmshI'nl lllO04l,

They wulk then towzmls the college
'l'here's yet lmnt little lllllCQ
" I love you clear,"
Suirl he, in fearg
" 0 please, wont you he mine?"
In after years, one evening
A couple sit znnl talk 3
" Wiie who'4l forget
Those eyes I inet
'l'h:it clay on the vollege walk."
On the nrst day of college
The Freshman is seen
In the rear of the chapel,
All hopeful and green.
A year thence he enters
The Sophomore ranksg
Superintendent of egg-roasts,
And leader of cranks.
And next he's ajuuiorg
But whalfs in a name,
For paper-hacked ponies
Arc used just the same.
But when he's a Senior
His color has changedg
Three years have upset
All the plans 116,11 arranged.
All honor is his
For his worthy deineanorg
So hast verdant lfreslnnan
To rank as il Senior.

4. GVQQNE of the bright memories in the history of the college graduate is the
V remembrance of the weekly society meetings.
,ef To the -Sigournean tl1e Friday afternoon is looked forward to with
the greatest pleasure.
Ever since a band of girls met for tl1e purpose of organizing a Ladies' So-
ciety, forty years ago, it has been both an honor to the college and an immeas-
urable aid to the members. Year after year some one has stepped out of its
portals intothe world, clad in the armor of true womanhood, and has l1eld her
own in fulfilling the duties of life. '
The past year has been spent in refurnishing of the hall. And the happy
blending of the blue and gold in the furnishings give a pleasant atmosphere,
and a sense of rest and comfort to those who habitually met within its walls.
Tl1e fortieth anniversary of the society was celebrated March 4, 1897, by a
reception. Many of the ex-Sigourneans were present, and all had an enjoyable
The Sigourneans have ever considered loyalty to their society, God, and
themselves, as the essentials of woinanliood, and with such principles as a foun-
dation, we can look forward down the long path of the future, and see noble
women who will uphold the banner of blue and gold, and " Pluck Laurels From
the Mountain Top of Science."

Ci Sql-IE Philoneikean Society l1ad its origin in the Philomathean Debating Club
'G A 3 of Moores Hill. Its history, as is the case of most societies, has been
checkered. From its organization in 1856, to the beginning of the Civil
War, its sun was ever risingf But while our nation was putting forth her her-
culean eiforts for self-preservation, our little society was engaged in a struggle
no less realy for its members, save Mr. Erskine, whose health was very poor,
had donned the blue, and were marching under tl1e fiag. With records lost we
can scarcely hope to gain an accurate knowledge of those early struggles. But
we do know that by the efforts then put forth, a society dear to every Philo.
heart has been preserved for us. The history of the society, from 1865 to the
present, may be well expressed by " progress." Clouds have Hoated across its
sky, but at no time has it been questionable whether its sun was rising or setting.
In the cultivation of the social nature of its members, and by the cultiva-
tion of a taste for the highest forms of literature, the society gives a training
secured in no other way. Without the one, man is deprived of many of the
pleasures of society, and of one of the choicest blessings granted by the Creator,
without the other, he can have little pleasure in his hours of seclusion.
The Philo. Chapter House is the dream of every Philoneikean. With a
view to the realization of this dream the Philoneikean Saving Association was
organized in May, 1893. Very material progress has been made in this direc-
tion, and in the near future the Philo. visiting Moores Hill and strolling through
the campus, will see a beautiful structure of stone and brick-his dream will be

THE PHOTOZETEAN SOCIETY.
SOCIETY COLOR-PINK AND BLUE.
7 ,HERE is no organization under the auspices of a college that is more con-
S5 3 ducive to the intellectual, social, and spiritual development of the stu-
dent than a Christian literary society. It is in the literary society that
the various traits of character are brought to view, and the good receive their
just connnendation, the bad their needed remedy. Here the truths acquired
from the text-book are applied, and the present issues are discussed, thereby
better fitting the student for the practical duties of life with which he soon must
do battle in the world. It is in the literary society that germs of power are dis-
covered, and the individual goes to work to cultivate and develop that power,
and so, as class work and society work, move on hand in hand. There is an
ascending series of ideals each approaching nearer moral perfection.
The Photozetean Society was organized May 17, 1869. There was felt to
be a need of an organization for the study and discussion of religious subjects.
A meeting was called, and a temporary organization effected under the title of a
" Society for Religious Inquiry." A few days later it was permanently formed
into a society, governed by a constitution and by-laws, with the same purpose as
the temporary organization. It received at this time the name Photozetean.
The next step in the evolution of this organization took place in the winter term
of 1886, when it was deemed advisable to draft a new constitution, and broaden
the field of work so as to include all subjects of literary value. The society is
governed at the present time by this constitution.
The preamble of the constitution states the purpose of the Photozetean So-
ciety to be the "maintaining of a high moral standard, and becoming proficient
in literary attain.ments."
A high moral standard and proficient literary attainments are only a means
to an end. The end to be realized is spiritual excellence. The work of the
society is conducted with especial reference to elevate the ethical standard, and
to increase the intellectual power and skill. So well has the former purpose been
accomplished, that to-day the society does not have a member who uses tobacco
or iudulges in profane or obscene language. The literary work shows that ideals
are being realized, and new ones formed for future realization.
The Photozetean Ecclesian, an organization formed of members, active and
passive, of the Photozetean Society, has in view the building of a gymnasium.
Such a building has been a long-felt need of Moores Hill College, and it is to be
hoped that the time is not far distant when such desires will be satisfied.

"Noi by Wllzgfhf, nor by power, bu! by my Sjniril, sailb lbc Lora' of boslsfl
in 'ii..,MONG other prosperous societies of Moores Hill students is the Y. W.
lfffllillif C. A. The organization was effected in October, 1894. A continued
ami? training in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, has made of this
child of a loving and God-fearing parent a daughter fair and iniiuential. Her
heart thrills at the thought of her important office. She sustains a close relation
to a system of work magnificent in its extension.
The parent organization is prosecuting its work throughout the world.
Young men and women, whom superstition and pseudo-religions had bowed to
despair, now lift their heads with hope. Listen! From the beautiful " Land of
the rising sun," from sunny " India's coral strand, " even from the isles of the
sea comes the joyful cry, "All hail the Y. W. C. A.! "
Christian young women have extended their hands to the fallen of all na-
tions. With a Christ-like spirit they claim as sisters, those whom they would
elevate to the true standard of womanhood. The progress of the work apd
increasing international interest are surely tokens of God's approval.
Our local organization earnestly cooperates with her noble brother, the Y. M.
C. A. The united efforts of the two associations have resulted in much good.
Prepararatory meetings were held during revival services. God's blessings were
abundant, and many were enabled to do personal work.
Under the direction of an active and efficient president, the past year has
been one of marked success and spiritual growth. The devotional meetings are
well attended. An interest in missions has been quickened, and special mission-
ary programs are rendered. Our Bible class is well attended. The time has
been devoted to a review of the life of Christ, and a comparative study of the
four gospels. The class is now studying the Old Testament. A chapter of Miss
Kingsley's " Titus " is read at each meeting. '
Since our association was organized sl1e has not failed to be represented at
the State conventions and the summer school. T11e president and corresponding
secretary have been elected delegates to the Geneva convention. The association
always derives inspiration and encouragement from the visits of the State secre-
tary. The social interests of our organization are by no means neglected. This
school year will bequeath to the members of the Y. W. C. A. a legacy of pleas-
ant memories of socials and informal receptions, which have served to strengthen
the ties of Christian friendship.
The ofiicers for the ensuing year are:
MARY CAMPBELL, - - - President.
EDITH BOLDREV, - - Vice-President.
NELLIE ROBERTSON, - - Secretary,
LUCY P19LsoR, - - - - Treasurer.
AGNES WILSON, Corresponding Secretary.
THE Y. M. C. A.
,HIS leading factor in the lives of the young men of Moores Hill College
3 is the influence of the Y. M. C. A. It affords warm, fostering Christian
fellowship and associations, and an abundant field for the growth and
exercise of the spiritual faculties.
The room in which the weekly devotional meetings are held is not an apart-
ment of the superb edifice which is the dream of our ambition, but it is cozy
and neat, and convenient withal, and is hallowed with the memories of our
fathers, who, through many successive years past, bowed there in prayer and
lifted their voices in praise of song. Back in the days when the Y. M. C. A.,
as now known among us, did not exist, the weekly prayer-meeting was the only
suggestion of similarity to the great inter-collegiate association. But while there
was no external organization, the germ was there, and from it was first devel-
oped in the spring of 1883 the formal organization, planted by the then State
Secretary, L. D. Wishard. It was not distinctively a Y. M. C. A. at that time,
for the ladies were admitted as well. In 1885 the Y. W. C. A. became separate.
Soon after both associations succumbed to the dark days through which the col-
lege was passing, when the very life of the institution was in the balance. A
vestige of the old organization remained, however, in the form of the young
men's weekly prayer-meeting, which preserved and augmented the animus which
effected the original Y. M. C. A. to inspire its resurrection in the fall of ,94,
when it received an endowment of vigor and strength that has not waned from
that day till this, but has, on the contrary, expanded with a gradual and steady
growth, until a creditable position among its sisterhood in the State has been
attained and maintained, Prof. Q. G. Spence was its first President. Prof. B.
W. Aldrich succeeded, and has held that office continuously and very acceptably
The association now deserves a name, previously it was a nonentity. The
tables of statistics do not sutiice to give an adequate conception of the accom-
plishments of this noble institution. There are unseen results, and, perhaps,
the greater in import by far. Who can estimate the value of the Bible Study
Classes, Personal Workers' Training Class, Missionary Study Class, and other
such departments of work?
A synopsis of the leading, tangible facts in the past three years' history of
the association may, in the main, indicate the nature a11d scope of its activity.
Seven standing connnittees are operative. Delegates have been sent each year
to the annual State conventions. At Columbus, '94, Prof. Q. G. Spence, J. L.
Shroyer, and Preston S. Hyde, at Terre Haute, '95,' Prof. B. W. Aldrich, E. I.
La Rue, C. H. Beckett, F. H. Collier, and C. S. johnson, at Crawfordsville, '90,
Prof. M. Vayhinger, C. M. Kroft, W. F. Smith, and C. R. Stout. At the Ge-
neva Sunnner Conference, Loree Van Osdal in '95, and Prof. Aldrich and Preston
Hyde in '06, were representatives. The local branch contributes quite gener-
ously to the State and international work. Two editions of a neat and useful
students' hand-book have been issued in conjunction with the Y. W. C. A. The
week of prayer and the day of prayer for colleges are observed. Monthly mis-
sionary meetings are held, every other one jointly with the Y. W. C. A. The
Missionary Study Class is under the direction of Prof. A. J. Bigney, and the
Personal Workers' Training Class is conducted by Prof. Vayhinger. The past
achievements and the present healthful growth and activity vindicate a right to
existence and hearty support on the part of every student with high purposes
and right views.
The association has had its periods of origin, dark days and renaissance,
corresponding to the epochs of institutional life. May we not in anticipation
bespeak for her an era of continued, healthful growth and prosperity. The offi-
cers and heads of committees follow:

H e--,LADSTONlu says: " lhose who think music ranks amongst the trlfles of
'e' it ' existence are in gross error: because from the beginning of the world,
ii y down to the present time, it has been one of the most forcible instru-
ments, both for training, for arousing, and for governing the mind of man.
There was a time when letters and civilization had but begun to dawn upon the
V" In that day music was not unknown, on the contrary, it was so far from
being a mere servant and handmaid of connnon and light amusement, that the
great art of poetry was essentially wedded to that of music, so that there was no
poet who was not a musician g there was no verse spoken in the early ages of the
world but that music was adapted as its vehicle, showing thereby the universal
COllSCl0llSllEZSS'lZll8.t ill that way, tl1e straightest and most effectual road, would be
found to the heart and affections of men."
To acquire musical cultivation requires years of study and hard work, both
mentally and physically, no matter how gifted the student may be. To gain this
one must be broad, but music is such an absorbing art that when one becomes
interested in it, it is difficult to divide the attention, and give to other kinds of
culture the time and study which one feels they require.
We must not only have musical culture but general culture, a liberal educa-
tion. It will be often noticed that some of our greatest scientists have no artistic
talents, and that some artists are not at all learned and so do not appreciate each
other's attaimnents. This can hardly be right, for all our powers cannot be fully
developed without the employment of both art and science, and as ourxinclina-
tion dictate one may be studied and followed more than the other. In our
endeavor to acquire self-culture we must never stop, always keep going, always
have our ambitions higher even than we dare hope to attain. We must have
perseverance, patience, ambition, and faith Faith, that no matter what obstacles
we encounter, what disappointments and interruptions we meet with, we shall
overcome them all. '
'-TAT i '
Music has need of its missionaries: aye, and its martyrs, too, as much as
religion, and it is given to every student to be the former if not also the latter.
Music should be as sacred to us as our religion, and we should resent any insult
to the one as to the otl1er. All students have the privilegeg nay, the sacred
duty of teaching, humbly and reverently, and to the best of their powersg others
to know and recognize good music and to distinguish it from bad 3 to set before
others continually such a high standard that theirs is instinctively raised, and
their perceptions of the beautiful almost unconsciously become clearer.
One does not necessarily need to be an accomplished pianist or singer before
he can do anything to advance the cause. One can love and worship the beau-
tiful as interpreted by others, can give encouragement, influence, and support to
all those striving to present the great truths of music to all the world 5 can inter-
est himself deeply in all matters musical, and above all can strenuously set his
face against all imposters and false teachers, and condemn openly and resolutely
the empty trash and tinkling rubbish, which may so wrongfully be designated

TI-IE RAINY DAY.
The morn is dreary: dark the sky,
And nature weeps her copious tears.
No glad'ning object meets t11e eye:
The falling drops the landscape blears.
The hills look vague : their ghostly form
Looms dimly in the morning air:
The eeaseless beating of the storm
Robs nature of her beauty rare.
U rainy day ! O rainy day !
Pass quickly from us and away!
The bird's song dies within l1is throat,
His little heart seems not to praise
The One for whom his merry note
Is trilled on other brighter days.
The flower hangs its dainty head:
lts crimson petals paler grow.
The light and glee of life seems fled:
The rainy day has made it so.
O rainy day! O gloomy day!
Make haste! away! away! away!
The drops make music as they fall:
But then 'tis such a mournful strain :
It breathes but sorrow, and we all
Will see with joy the sun again.
We long to gaze upon the skies
All blue, and bright with sunshiue gold :
The mists are NEEDFUL, but our sighs
Tell only ol' a sadness old
XVhe11 rainy days, dark dreary days,
Their shadows cast upon our ways.
The sun peeps forth! hail, glad'ning bean1!
A golden bar falls through tI1e clouds
Adown to earth: tl1e rain-drops gleam
Like precious gems. The gloom that shrouds
Our narrow sight, fast disappears:
All hearts rejoice: our sighs take wing:
Iiacli to their sources sink our tears,
And every voice is tuned to sing,
Oh, sunny ray ! Oh, heavenly ray!
We welcome thee across our way.
Hut soon, ah, soon the clouds come on !
Tl1e golden bar is lost to sight,
Ourjoy so sweet, so soon is goneg
Our hearts are sad as comes the night.
Earth seems more drear e'en than before
That swift winged messenger from heaven
Gave us one hour, and then no more
Was seen through threat'uingc1omls unriven
Oh, sunny ray! Oh, sunny ray!
Too brief thy stay! Too brief thy stay!
The evening comesg behold the XVest!
The sun is dying 'mid the flowers
Of Zepl1'rus' garden, and his rest
Now comes at last in golden bowers,
A promise fair of brighter skies
At lllOl'lll1lg'iS birth. The peep of dawn
XVill find no clouds before our eyesg
To-morrow storms will all be gone.
Oh, promised day! Uh, rosy day !
XVe scarce can wait thy glorious ray.
And tlms it is throughout our life 3
The rain falls fast, and weary hearts
Oft long to see, when worn with strife,
The sunlight come e'er day departs.
But e'en though few may be the beams Q
That fall across life's lonely way,
And all tl1e path so cheerless seemsg
God promises a radiant day
To-morrowg aye, a cloudless sky:
No rainy day is known on high!

SOME MEMORIES OF MOORES HILL COLLEGE.
n'DC':1 . , F 1 I. K l I .
Q CMO be given a place in the college faculty when one 1115 scaicey matric-
'QUU ulated is not a privilege granted to many students. Nevertheless, While
4' yet a "prep" I was so honored, and elevated to the office and honors of
the Professorship of Dust and Ashes. This was an honor unprecedented in the
history of Moores Hill College. All old students are familiar with the details of
the work of this department. It was much the siune then as now. There was
a custom in those days, however, that does not now prevail. It was decreed
that students should arise at 5 a. m. to begin the work of the day. Conse-
quently it became necessary for the Professor of Dust and Ashes to make his
way early to the college building to ring the college bell, the signal that the
hours for slumber were ended.
The difficult approach to the bell-rope made this duty laborious and many
times adventurous. The bell-rope did not reach to the second floor as now, but
dangled no nearer earthward than the great timbers beneath the belfry. Each
morning through autumn, winter, and spring the bell must needs ring, and the
Professor climbed the heights amid the darkness of the early morning, oftentimes
with mingled imaginations of spooks or devilish students in shrouds, obstructing
the dark passage ways of the upper regions of tl1e old college. The shins and
head often felt the blow of some unfriendly timber, but the bell always rang.
While Frcslnnen there came to our ears the mutterings of War. The
Union was threatened, and the rebellion was soon on. The spirit of patriotic
fervor had for weeks and months been growing stronger and stronger in the
student body at Moores Hill College. The immortal Lincoln called for a volun-
teer soldiery to struggle on the field of battle for the preservation of our Union,
and the illustrious and heroic Adams, Moores Hill's first president, connnissioned
the care of the college into the hands of others, and went to join the army of
American volunteers. Scores of students and some of the faculty forthwith fol-
lowed his example, and at one time it appeared the college would be compelled
to close its doors. By heroic effort, however, the school continued its various
courses and the doors were never closed.
The Moores Hill students who went to the field saw service at Hoover's Gap
and Chickamauga, Mission Ridge and Lookout Mountain, Knoxville, Nashville,
and other scenes of encounters in the South. Many there were who marched
out to the field but not all marched back again. President Adams and others
who had left the halls three years before had been sacrificed, and returning we
found new men in the ,faculty and IICVV faces on the campus.
Arms were laid aside, books were taken up again, and in June, ISU8, I had
completed the course. The class was made up of four young ladies and two
gentlemen. We were graduated and bade adieu to alma mater.
Memory recalls rhetorical exercises. They were full of interest and amuse-
ment , especially when there was a unanimity of sentiment among the members
of the classes, and more than once were the time-honored orations of "South
Carolina" and the speech of Patrick Henry applauded as speakers, who had
unwittingly made the same selections, returned from the platform. The discom-
liture of the students on these occasions, when lnemory was hckle, was a source
of great amusement to us all.
There was my friend, a genuine " Tinkerf' who was delivering his oration
before a large audience of students, professors, and towns-people. He had not
proceeded far when the crisis came. At once he faltered. "But"-trying to
recover himself, " but"-again he attempted, " but." His discomfiture was most
complete. The audience was in full sympathy with him. As he hesitated he
became more confused, and made one desperate effort to rally. Once again was
heard " but, but,'l and the disconcerted speaker left the platform.
Many a night echoed and re-echoed with the voices of young orators as they
took the stump in some neighboring field, or secreted themselves in the woods near
by, there to harangue imaginary audiences in view of the commencement ordeal.
I think of sky-parlor, the little attic-room in the boarding-house north
of the campus, in which two jolly widowers held forth, and many happy times
did we spend there. One of them is now an influential attorney in the city of
Muncie, the other a successful pastor in the North-east Indiana Conference, and
while no longer in the little attic-room under the eaves is yet in "Attica"
I had a classmate whose hair was the hue of the planet Mars, and yet,
strange misnomer, he bore the name "Whitehead" He shone among us then,
and still shines in his profession among men. ,
There was a student among us who would talk in his sleep, and many a
night on being partially aroused and wickedly questioned would return answers
entirely satisfactory to the mischievous querists. Then would follow an infinite
deal of plaguing, of which not only he was the victim but often another, a sharer
in his evening strolls, and the confidantc of all his ambitions.
Such are a few of the memories of the past. Our alma mater has given her
quota of talent to theworld, and her children have done well. May she have
God speed in her future career.

My Dear P-: I have just returned from the polls, rejoicing in the con-
sciousness of having done what I can in redeeming n1y country from oppression
and the gold standard. I voted straight.
The chances are good for Mr. Bryan's election, but I will nal stultify myself
in venturing predictions that to-morrow will hold 1ne up to the ridicule of 21
heartless world ....... If Bryan is elected I will bring
a stock of pictures to supply the place of all that may be taken from the win-
dow, but if tl1e other way I'll say nothing and saw wood.
P. S. Love to all the girls.

AN AUTHENTIC HISTORY OF A FAMOUS EVENT.
60 G Q HEN a certain eminent man and famous executive re1narked: "The
CG' battles of the world are not fought on the rear end of freight trains.
i P The battles of tl1e world are not fought where the white moonlight
falls upon the lonely corn-popper's fire," little did he imagine that within three
short months the peaceful scene of these observations would witness one of the
fiercest "battles " which ever disturbed the unbroken monotony of our "world "
of student life.
It was one of those days in niidwinter with just enough frost in tl1e air to
make the muscle tingle with desire to test their powers. The keen and eager
spirit of the time possessed tl1e Seniors. When the word was passed they were
among the Juniors before you could pronounce the Words "Jack Robinson"
in a moderate tone of voice. Hyde was the bone of contention. He had been
the Seniors' treasurer. When he left the Seniors, like many a bank cashier
departing for tl1e North, he carried the money with him for safe keeping.
" Bring back the defaulterf' hissed a Senior through his clenched teeth. They
started, J-h-s-n saw them coming. l'I'll protect you, dear," he said, and
put one arm lovingly around H-d- with a grace and precision attained only
by much practice. All efforts to sunder this grip were futile. His classmates
come to his assistance. All grapple like fiends, and wrestle and struggle and
pile in a heap in a manner worthy of foot-ball players. The chairs crash be-
neath them. " Quick, or they perish," shouts a professor fmeaning the chairsl,
The Faculty rush to the rescue. Prof. Blank heroically tries to pull a Junior
off the chairs, grasping his scarf with a grip of iron, but in vain. Prof. Dash,
in making the same attempt, removes a handful of Mr. D- v-s' hirsute ador11-
ment. Realizing that the biggest man is heaviest on the chairs, Prof. Blank
seizes L- R- by the coat-tail, and is making grand progress, but H-r-itt
settles him with a left-hand jab in the back, a right-hand swing, and a left-
hand upper cut in the wind. The chairs were rescued at last. Some were

THE FACULTY 'LL GIT YOU.
Big brother john has come
From Moores Hill to stay,
XVhere l1e's been reading big hooks,
An' hearin' wl1at the teachers say g
An' sometimes havin' lots oi' fun
Goin' out at night,
An' roastin' eggs in Spenccr's,woodsg
Soinetinies they get a fright.
An' ns chillcn we listen
To these stories that john tells,
An' shivers go up an' down our backs,
An' we have sich shakin' spells
Listenin' to these awful things
That brother tells about.
An' the Faculty 'll git you
lif you don't watch out.
Wnnst there wuz some boys and girls
Thought it would funny be
To go away out of the town
An' have a jubilee.
They went into the country,
Took alot of things to eat,
An' in a big farm house out there
They had a glorious treat.
They laughed and talked an' had a time,
Till awful late, John said g
But guess it had been best for them
Il' they had been in bed,
For every thing went against them 5
Their teachers found them ont.
An' the faculty 'll git you,
lit' you don't watch out.
An' wunst there wuz some Senior boys
Thought it would never do
To let a mighty Senior
A Sit in a junior pew.
So they undertook to lift him
An' put him back once more ,
But they failed in their endeavor,
An' all got on the floorg
An' they broke the chairs just awful,
But the man tl1ey could not budge Q
An' then they wis't they hadn't,
Orjohn says l1e's no judge,
For the faculty were shocked at them
VVhen they saw what they were about.
An' this said faculty 'll git you too,
lif you don't watch out.
An' john says lots more things they do
To drive dull care away,
But it always leads to trouble g
In the end it does not pay.
But then there is no harm, you know,
In just a " little tare 3 "
For sometime young folks will get old.
An' then they do not care.
But john says the best way to do
Is, when you go to school,
Never disobey your teacher,
An' never break a rule g
For he says you cannot be so sly
But that you'll be found out,
An' the faculty 'll git you sure,
Though you do watch out.

CORNER IN THE NORMAL DEPARTMENT
THE IDLE IDYL.
A winter's night-the hour was late 3
Most every one had sought, at Soninus' hint,
A downy pillow, which sweet forgetfulness had wrought
Of daily woes and hourly cares,
And honesty had bought.
The students, both the quick and slow,
Had laid by, with relief, their history and Cicero,
l'hilosophy, analasis, and everything in brief,
Which l1ad so vexed their tired brains
And caused them untold grief.
The town was wrapped in silence.
Deserted were the streets to shrieking winds
Which swept their length, performing countless feats
Of throwing ice clad branches 'gainst the house
With measured, eeaseless beats.
Inipenetrable darkness hung over the silent town 3
lllaekness so dense, it seemed to be solid,
Such a night as one loves to be in the defense
or strong walls, and by a warm fire
To seek recompense.
All silence and darkness? Plot so,
For alone gleaming light, like 1"olyphe1ne's eye,
Magniiied by the contrast, shone into the night.
Some student is toiling
With diligent might.
Within that rooni let ns take a peep.
Not zeal for learning had kept thewlamp aglow '
For before the gleaming coals reelined a youth, discerning
Fantastic shapes of future hopes,
Which in his soul were burning.
The clock moaned out the hour of twelve,
But that form moved not, his eyes were fixed
On the einber picture. He saw in the coals a lovely spotg
A modest mansion, and all l1is own 3
Ah! could this truly be his lot?
And there, kind Fate ! he saw the form
Of her he thought so fair, the fathomless eyes
Looked into hisg he noted the shining brown hairg
Tl1e beautiful lips were smiling at him
In their witchery so rare.
The scene has changed. In 11 .counting house
He looks over .ponderous books. Satisfaction
Overspreads his face: Hlilll ricl1, how fair my prospect looks
My loved ones nc'er shall feel a want,
They're care-free as limped brooks."
The door swung wide, " Old friend I've come
To ask your aid. I'm straight from old Moores Hill
You know g your former loyalty docs not fade?
We need a few round thousands g
Pray share the fortune you have made."
" My memories of Moores Hill College,
Indeed, are warm a11d truc, for there 'll1Ollj.f yellow hills
My soul received awakening, my life a purpose new.
I 1lC'Cl' grow tired of calling
Those reinembranees to view.
"While there I made this resolution
That if ever I was blessed, with more than enough
For my comfort, l'd give some of the rest
To my dear old Alma Matcrg
I'll gladly fulhl your request."
The picture fadcd,.the fire died,
The Senior's dark overgrown hair, in rope like trcases,
I-Iung over the back of his cosily cushioned chair,
I-Iis lips were wide parted. his lungs were superb 5
" There was music in the air."

3.3 A Teacher, of a Virginia district school, recently asked one of her
little colored pupils to go to the blackboard and write a sentence thereon
containing the word "delight" George Washington jackson went promptly
to the front of the room and wrote, in a large, scrawling hand, these
words, " De wind blowed so hard that it put out de light.".,9l.AF..99.,!'-199.199
.AMC Now, students, faculty, alumni, and friends, will you please speak,
or write a sentence containing the word dc'f1',gfhl? Not as George
Washington jackson did, but something like this: " It is with delight I
accept your splendid offer of the '98 "1VIelange" for One Dollar. vide!
.818 Our artist has drawn on his imagination, and we are able to sug-
gest in the accompanying illustration the delight with which the '98
"MeIange," the brightest and best sf-will be received everywhere. vbhbld
