' 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 Oran ge.

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 the institution. 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- fessor. 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. 20 PROF. A. J. BIGNEY 21 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 Natural Science. 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. 9' I O 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, 1800. -Y PROF. B. W. ALDRICH 'J PROF. ALFRED ROSS. I 7 ,V P . 1 . ' J ' 'n N5 h ' W' Eff X ., ' " V lk . im' f S X' f , MRS. E.

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.

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- western railroad. 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 Moores Hill. 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. . W-- 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- ually. 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. 33 THE COLLEGE BELL. SONNET. 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. - 23-l v 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- . L" it oped inusculnr strength und physical vigor for college and professional, life. He entered the first preparatory class in old Asbury, now DePauw Uni- versity, in 18722. He was graduated in lH77 with il class of fifty-one. In the D Th olofficul Stllllllilfj' at Madison, N. J. fall ofthe sznne year he went to rexv Q g The course here was completed in one year, and from this institution he received a diploma in 1878. - H ' 'Sl l He entered the South-east Indiana Conference the szune tall. In 184 ie l t tl Picsidcncv of Moores Hill College. At the close of the fol- was electec o ie l r . lowing college year he went hack into the ministry, and has served some of the best charges in the Conference. He is now pastor of the College Avenue Methodist lipiscopul Church, Bloomington. Ind. 535 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. 36 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. 'Hle is President of the Syracuse Academy of Sciences and Vice-President of the New York State Science Teachers' Association. I nl i 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. ISS COLLEGE LOYALTY. 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 the unwise." 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 Southern Indiana. 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. , C. W.

Cs 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- v 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 borders, then "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.

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 54 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 laughs." 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 progress ---?????? 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. 55 r I 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 enterprise. 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. REFLECTIONS. I. Sunset. 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. 56 While in the stillness softly call The nameless sounds of night, In dreamy sleep my eyelids fall With the moonheams coming light. II. Sunrise. 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.

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. B. W. ALDRICIAI. H0 A JUNIOR CLASS. 5 i. THE CLASS OF '98, UUNIORJ 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' The oliicers are : IRIQNIQ MARTIN, - President.

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 69 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.

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 time. 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." 88 SI C1 A.-. --il -lk .-f-,, .gy 'gy ' PHILONEIKEAN SOCIETY.

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 realized. 99 -- GG . ," 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. 96 I P as Y. W. C. A. "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. ' 99 ff 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. TREMH 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 since. 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. 'ilkiii A P 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: Puoif. B. W. ALDRICH, - 151-eg-giqleut, J. C.

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 world. 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 as music. if Wilism f 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.

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.

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 108 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. Ii. H.

'I he success of the Association is unquestioned. It has at present a large 1llCll1lJCI'SIllP and is in good condition, all tl1e ineinbers taking itll active interest in the work of the Association. This year the interest has centered in tennis and base-ball. The two courts allord opportunity for a 11un1ber to play tennis. The tennis connnittee have suc- ceeded i11 keeping the courts in good condition, and considerable interest has bee11 taken in the nunlerous t0l1I'l121lllCl1'ES. The fact that two ball teains have been organized indicate the lively interest taken i11 base-ball. The practice a11d playing of both clubs, under the direction of Mr. Davis and Mr. Sylvester, has been very satisfactory. Several games have been played with other teams. Through the eiforts of the individual members of, the ball club, aided by the Association, 11ew ball suits were secured last fall. Field day exercises are under the direction of the Association.

WD 123 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 12-l d tl 'll have to ay for the chairs," said a gruff voice broken. "Never min , iey C p from the Faculty.

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. 126 'K' 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.

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 ' l , 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." 132 1' Y, ,,k, Y . , , ,ghTf':' ' . 1 -, - J 111- ,li fggix-:E-ff'-.'1f1g ,, - 49.4 Q '.,q ' - , 115, Q1-,z ,M1-gif--,.
