M l RY KEMPER, ' ().;. •• ' Ti education forms the common mind. 11 r T HE history of education in and around the historic i ' itv of Lexington must needs occupy a I pari of the history of Central Kentucky. So largely has the influence ol Lexington ' s educational facilities and institutions been fell dur- ing the past century that the little city has been called the Athens of the West, a title not inaptly chosen, for ii has at all times been the centre, intellectual and literary, of tl - Nor are we surprised that it has occupied so conspicuous a position when we reflect upon its surpassing advantages a an ed- ucational center. In fact, from the earliest period ofits settlement Lexington has always enjoyed the reputation which it now holds. Because the earliest settlers of the surrounding country wenl out on " the frontier, " and their life was one of trial and hardship. Contending in deadly strife with the native Indians and earning a hardy livelihood " by the sweat ol their brow-. " did not prevent many of them from being men of cul- ture, education, and refinement. Main- who had enjoyed the best society, the finest educational ad- antages, and all the refining influences afforded by their mother States, and having come to Ken tuck} . then only a distant county of Virginia, in quest of fortune and adventure, their fortunes made and their adventurous proclivities gratified, very naturally they turned their attention to the education of their descendants, thus laying, in the very earliest stages of Kentucky history, those broad foundations ol education, refinement and religion upon which is built the grand old Commonwealth of to-day, and which are, indeed, the only bulwarks against the tyranical oppression of rulers and the only means ol attaining the perfect liberties of the people. So soon, indeed, was the attention oi " the earlj settlers turned to the education of their children that we find, in the year i 7 s . Transylvania Seminary, char- tered by the Legislature of Virginia. This institution was moved to Lexington i n i7 ss , and from this date schools and colleges have been constantly accumulating in Lexington, gaining tor the city an en- viable reputation throughout the whole country. Transylvania University, or. as it was called in the first charter granted by the Virginia Legisla- ture, " Transylvania Seminary, " was the first institution of any prominence west of the Alleghenies. The influence which it has exerted on the southern and western portions of our country cannot be esti- mated, and to-driy there is scarcely a city of any importance in the West or Southwest which has not among its citizens alumni of this famed institution. Nor has its influence been confined to America, hut its name is respected and favorably known in many portions ot Europe — a fact testified to by the many valuable donations made to it by some of the most celebrated institutions of learning in foreign countries and some of the foremost scholars of Europe. The name Transylvania — a classical rendering of " ' the backwoods " — is the same name as that selected by Richard Henderson and others when they attempted in 1775, to establish in Kentucky a proprietary form of government, in utter disregard of the authority of the Legislature of Virginia. The first charter of Transylvania Seminary is a very interesting document, but the limit of this article and its purposes will not admit any detailed account of its numerous provisions. This school, although supported by the grant of the Virginia Legislature, owed its existence, for the most part, to the efforts of a f-w prominent Presbyterians, and was, therefore, very naturally opened under the auspices ot that church. It is interesting to note the tuition then paid and the currency in which it was paid. The first published terms for Transylvania Seminary were: • ' Tuition, £5 a year, one-half cash, the other halt in property. Boarding. £9 a year, in property, pork. corn, tobacco, etc. " Education in those days was evidently much cheaper than now. and, I have no doubt, was just as complete and sat- isfactory, if we can judge from the character of the men which it produced. From the time of its removal to Lexington — 178S to 1793 — " in spite of the war troubles and dis- couragements " — the schools seem to have enjoyed unusual prosperity, not so much in the number of its students as in the number and prominence of its instructors, tor in the Kentucky Gazette of December, 1793, we find the following announcement: " The Transylvania Seminary is now well supplied with teachers of natural and moral philosophy, of the mathematics and of the learned languages. " But soon, as was to be expected, sectarian differences arose between the Presbyterians and the Baptists, and, as a result, the Presbyterians withdrew their support and founded a separate school, which they called the Kentucky Academy. Among the liberal contributors to the endowment of this school we find the names of George Washington, John Ouincy Adams, Aaron Burr, and Robert Morris. These sectarian dissensions, in the end. resulted in mutual benefit to all concerned, for both factions perceived " the error of their ways, " became reconciled, and petitioned the Kentucky Legislature to consolidate the two schools, under the name of the Transylvania University, declaring " that such a union would be for the public good and is consistent with the laws. " Thus was founded the Transylvania University, an institution which afterward attained a reputation unexcelled by thai of any other American college. S m after the charter was granted to it the institution was given the appearance of a regular Uni- versity l v tii - addition " i Law and Medical I lepartments. The teachers in the professional departments have never been surpassed in any ot the professional schools oi the oun Vmong I i ilty " I the College of Law we find the names of [esse Bledsoe, [udge ol Kentucky Curt of Appeals, and United S i S nator ; Henry Clay, George D. Robertson, Chief Justice ot Kentucky Court ol Appeals; William ' I ' . Barry, Thomas . Marshall, and a number of other men hav- ing National reputations. In tact, --at that tim ilar college in tin ' United States was considere d its sup nor in the ability of its teachers or the number of its students. " T 1 " Mi dical Department were equally as prominent in their lines . and then ' was no Medicil College, excepi pprhaps the University ol P inia, that was its equal. The University was visited in i Nig by President M G neral [ackson, Governor Shelby, and many other distinguished men, and in 1825 by Lafayette, then on his visit to Ameri( t. About time Lord Stanley, afterward the Earl of Derby, made a personal examination of the institution, and expressed him -ill ' a- being much pleased with the plan ol ition. The numb r ol students attended in the best days of the institution «;h vi many as one thousand in its various departments. The number of graduates in the Medical Depart- ment alone had reached, in [865, upward, of two thousand, si I tnd 1 t 1 chool, v the Law Depa ner fui nished aim- -t the -.mi • numb Den iminationalism has always been the greatest drawback to Transylvania and h I 01 a long time it was under the control of the P - erian Church ; later under the 1 ial ( irch, and still latter the Methodist Church, while to-d ;i Kentucky University, its successor, is under the management ol the Disciples ol Christ. On acci unl ol tl is ti nd n to church influence, there had in the history of Transylvania numerous dissensions among ii supporters as to tin- m inner of its man- in :nt, a ' tim - being so violent as to lead to an entire surrender ol the school from nomination to another. During the Civil War. and just before it, Transylvania lost several ot ' her most imposing buildings by lire, and the war following jusl tu the wake of these losses had a very disastrous effect on thi Uni- versity. In fact, the institution never recovered from the effects, and in the year 1865 the trustees, de- siring to perpetuate for Lexington her character and usefulness as an educational c -ntre. conveyed the entire property to Kentucky University and consolidated it with that institution. From thai dati the historj ot Transylvania blends with that ot ' Kentucky University. The record of Transylvania is a proud one. Among the names of her thousands of graduates and students appear the names of Jeffer- son Davis, Thomas F. Marshall. Congressman and Judge of Kentucky Court of Appeals; Dr. B. . Dudley : Richard H. Menifee : John Boyle, Governor of Illinois and Chief Justice of Kentucky for sixteen years; Richard M. [ohnson ; V. T. Barry; Jesse Bledsoe: C. A. Wickliffe ; Justice Harlan, of the United States Supreme Court, and a host of others, cabinet officers, foreign ministers, governors, generals, physicians, divines, and men of every grade and business of life. Few colleges in America can show such an array of distinguished Alumni. Many of them have now passed away to reap their re- ward, but not a few alive to-dav. [maintaining the same exalted position that their predecessors occupied before them. The history of Kentucky University is as yet a brief one but has been by no mean de- i .ill of honor. Its separate history began in 1865 and a few years later the Agricultural and Mechanical College { Kentucky was founded by Act of Congress, and it was made one of the colleges of the University. It then had a College of Law and a College of the Bible in addition to the regular Academical Depart- ment. The Law College suspended operations early in the eighties, but it was again continued in 1892, but with small success and closed again in 1894. Kentucky University has to-day three departments, a College of Liberal Arts, a College of the Bible and a Commercial College. In these three departments there are usually enrolled about seven or eight hundred students each year. The Agricultural and Mechanical College was separated from Kentucky University in 1S7S, and is now a prosperous and flourishing college siluated in Lexington. There are few schools in the South which can compete with it as a scientific and technological college. Kentucky University, during recent years, has been constantly improving. In 1894 a large and handsome gymnasium was added to the other imposing buildings, and the following year a commodious new structure was dedicated to the use of the College of the Bible. In iSSq the educational display of Kentucky University at the ■•Exposition Universelle " at Paris was rewarded by one of the highest awards, and in 1893 at the World ' s Columbian Exposition at Chicago, it again received the highest recognition and award. Among the distinguished Alumni of Kentucky University are found the names of Roger (L_ Mills. Senator from Texas: Benton McMillin, Congressman from Tennessee; Congressmen Champe Clarke, ot Missouri; Smith, of Arizona, and Owens, of Kentucky: among others the names of James Lane Allen, the celebrated Southern novelist: Dr. Virgil I ' . Gibney, of New York City, one of the foremost surgeons in America and a professor in Columbia Medical College; Prof. Wm. 15. Smith, of Tulane University, and in Kentucky, fames H. Hazelrigg, of the Kentucky Court of Appeals; State Senators 4 Charles J. Bronston and W. W. Stephenson; Lieut. -Gov. M. C, Aiford, Circuit fudges Watts Parker and Jerre R. Morton, of Lexington, and a number of other prominent men of State reputation. The limit ..i this article will not admit a more extended account of Kentucky University. Suffice it to say, that if her students in the years to come are equal to the full measure of their predeo ssors, her future will indeed be a proud one. ... | sS r buildings. y HE first building of Transylvania University of which we have any record was a two-story brick lO which stood in the north end of the space now known as Gratz Park. It was probably destroy- ed by tire, for in 1817 a new building, a brick of three stories, was erected near the spot now oc- cupied by the music-stand in the lower end of the Park, which was at that time the University Cam- pus. This buiiding. named in honor of the Rev. Horace Holley, the third president of the University, was destroyed by tire on the 9th of Mav. 182a. Thus crippled by a severe blow the old college would not have recovered for many years had it not been for the benevolence of.two great citizens, Henry Clay and James Morrison. Colonel Morrison, a man of great wealth, having no children, desired to bequeath a large sum to one of Mr. Clay ' s sons. Mr. Clay, who was writing the will, refused to allow this to be done, and suggested to Colonel Morrison that he make the bequest to Transylvania University. Accordingly, by will dated December 21, 1820, he left $20,000 to establish in the University a professorship bearing his name and a residuary legacy, estimated at $40,000, " to be applied to the erection of another edifice to be denominated Morrison College. " After purchasing two-thirds of the present campus, the fund was used in the erection of the classic old building, which " w-as opened with appropriate inauguration cere- monies on the fourth of November, 1833.

OU ARE cordially invited to take a peep into the " Sanctum Sanctorum " of our class, that you r 1 1 . i ileasure ol spending a few moments with some of the great men coming century. It has been truly said that, in this age, we know too much ol the ancients to the exclusion of men ol modern times ; we can decipher hieroglyphics of Hebrew and Greek, but are familiar with the classics ol our own " mother tongue ; " aj e, there is a continual delving into dust} mam t ancient lore for thai which satisfieth not, and we exclaim at last, too late, perhaps, " there is more joy in anticipation than in realization. " Y. i it is nol " ur purpose to speak disparagingly ..i our times, Inn thai we, the Senior Class of ' 97, may have that consideration which is due us. Perhaps the library would be of inter .1 as it is. by the thousands who have te before us, with books especially selected for our college work. Among other things presented by tin- Class ol ' 91 . ne hundred volumes of " Handy Literal Translations " with as m in " Interlinears, " morocco bound and with g(u)ilt(y) edges. For these and main- other valuable gifts we desire to most sincerely thank our benefactors, since many is the senior, who. after trying •watch tin- hear " in a night of amusement, has crepl silently into our " Sanctum San corum " and in the short space allotted to him " till civil-suited Morn appear. " by the aid of aforesaid books, been transferred to the si I orum, whi e Cicero pleads with the Conscript Fathers in eloquence of living lire, or heard, as if by magic, the soul-stirring themes of Demosthenes. Our class is not different from other senior classes in its evolution. We have passed through tlu- tour years " course, tirst.as Freshmen, when, " verdant " as the grass which iv« .,. feel and with a feeling of rapture, we approached the desk of the venerable ex-Presidenl Graham, Professor of Philosophy, and showing him a certificate ol scholarship in Physiology, which in our vernacular was mean! for Psychology, were greeted with that smile at our ignorance, which only the learned can give, and were told that th re is a wide difference between the physical and the teal " and all that, " and, sadder and wiser, we departed to return after two years. As Sophomores we have the air toward strangers of " Come, lei us show you around. " having been initiated in all matieis.,- regards college life. In the Junior year increasing our wisdom and knowledge, we have nothing to envy sue the Seniors, and be ,■ year will place them where they will not be in our way. ' Tis wonderful what a 1 - ol college effects; the Senior, who walks with ly pride and pensive brow, little reminds us of the unsophisticated Freshman. Yet such we were. but in the halls of old K. U. we have been taughl the Arts and Sciences and our minds have been made the 1 ceptacle of truth and knowledge, which if rightly used will redound to out interesl and that of our ••Alma Mater.

E RECORD the beginning of our career as a class contemporary with another great evenl in our nation ' s history. An inquisitive populace had gathered upon the shores of Lake Michi- gan to admire the most marvelous collection of the world ' s wonders ever looked upon by mankind. But while Chicago a passing through the tumultous uproar ofthegreal Fair, each of U s left his country or city home, and with hearts throbbing with anticipations of college joys and triumphs we gathered in the far-famed Athens of the West. Vs we near the day in which we will have bestowed up i proud distinction oi being col- graduates, we are unconsciously In! to turn and reflect upon the pasl years of our college life. This period has not been marked by an uninterrupted stream of joys and successes. When we ranked a Freshmen our class numbered almost twice as main a- are now in the Senior class. On account of uncontrollable circumstances some have been compelled to abandon their cherished hope-. Others found themselves unequal to the diligent application required, or believed tlieniseb.es better some other calling than preaching, and withdrew. But we believe that as large a per cent of those who entered in ' 93 will complete the course, as of any class in the history of the coll. But while we have been pained a ' seeing these unfortunate and discontented ones leave us. the life of each ot us made brighter by our association with tin-,, who remain. We have formed friendships during ibis briei period that will last in unbroken constancy till death shall break the strings that bind us heart to heart. In view of the time required to complete it. our course is. we believe, the best that could be selected to prepare us tor the- work weha e chosen. We have been carefully instructed in almost the whole Bible. The arguments of the critics who are hostile to the belief in the authenticity and inspir- ation ot ' the Old Testament havi ieen poin d out to us. and the refutations carefully made out. We have tm abiding confidence in the truth fnlness of the whole of the old book, .and we are readj to defend from skeptical assault every erse of the sacred volume. e are almost al the end of our coll, gi , an er, and as we look back we feel that we have spent here some years as happy as any we can hope for in the years that may come to us. Soon we will go forth, and it we heed the words .,t our motto " Fulfill thy ministry, " a lite of diligent effort av us and success will crown our labors. 1 ' President, Ika M. Boswell.

After mashing his nose, having an eye gouged a and iving those other little injuries incident alone t " the knight of the pin-skin, he concludes that the football field is no place for a Freshman, and that it would be more healthful t " confine himself to gent- ler sports.

" El i|ui facere et qui facto aliorum scripsere, multi laudautur, " say- the historian, and thus un- fortunately denied the abilities which characterize in fellow members of the class ol ' 99. I might, nevertheless, be permitted to share the glory of their greatness, and t. occupy a lowlj niche in the temple of tlu-ir fame by reciting their everlasting d -eds, were it nol for the facl thai the space alloted would be insufficient for such a recital. I might also immortalize myself by converting my editorial chair into an ocular tripod, and giving utterances to prophesies respecting the glorious futun ol these promising S1.pl10nn.rr-. were it nol thai the same reason forbids. Suffice it to say, however, thai there are in this class theologians, philosophers and orators whose powers, when sufficiently ma- tured by years, will eclipse those oi Mather, Plato and Demosthenes. Undoubtedly the unsophisticated Freshman regards as a very remarkable man the Sophomore who solves with ease thi s of Trigonometry, and mounted .n his Pegasus follows the ship ..i Eneas from the plains ol Troy to Italy, and the Lavinian shores. And so we, in turn, us.- the Junior as an object of contempt. Yet we are not exalted above ur adversaries, bul readily lend a helping hand to the wee Freshman just beginning to climb the foothills of learning; for we -land on loftier heights, and look beyond where hope ' s brighl star throws glimmering ra - upon the peaks thai rise higher and higher, and tower away into the mi-ts of the unknown.

E TAKE great pleasure in upholding the name of our worthy Freshman Class, th no remarkable class of K. I . Remarkable because it can make more noise to asquare inch • of time than any class in College, and also for its new and improved code ol Parliament- arj law. In anj ol its meetings if any one is so imprudent as not to agree with the wishes of the majority, he is immediately compelled to alter his opinion on the subject by reason of very striking arguments. No more than three members — unless ii is a very interesting subject — arc allowed t ad- dress the chair at the same time, there being numero to punish any such offense. S nie .■! ' cur Profi — rs wonder why we do not make better recitations than we generally do, so we shall explain matters to the best of our ability . Our time is too much occupied with other import- ant matters to prepare our lessons. We have to practice all kind- of -port- to keep up college spirit ( which is quite important) , and also to keep ourselves from growing bookish. We must -moke out the Seniors one night a week in order to keep their knowledge at least within reasonable limits. Not to mention hiding William ' - bell, greasing blackboards, putting pails of water over chapel doors, and other such innocent amusements. It you doubt our scientific attainments, we merely invite you to the Physics k ' la--. where you will find us engaged in making inquiries into the secrets of nature and obtaining results which naturally leave Darwin and Spencer in the shade. When President Loos is buried in the windings ol some old, gnarled, petrified, pusillanimous Greek ro,.t. and hears subter- ranean thunder and hoar-e murmuringS, he need not be alarmed, but wait patiently until peace i- again restored, for some one has merely announced the results ol his inquiries into Science, and weapplaud his wonderful discovery. We an- looked down upon by all the other classes in college merely because we are young and more lively than studieus, and particularly because we always enjoj a joke at some one ' s expense, no matter who the victim. So kind reader bear patiently with us, and remember that the happiest and freest days in all our lievs were -pent in the Freshman year and at K. U. ?oII of fye Bibl N , ' oo.

So The Cecropian Society VTY I IE nam.- of Socrates and Demosthenes have come down to us loaded with all the praises and • I J honor which in their time was bestowed on men who excelled in wisdom and oratory ; but, if J i V. the ancient Greeks could have peered behind the veil, and scanned the future, the} would s- -s undoubtedly have held in less esteem these two heroes and patriots, and have sung more praises to the menu o! one who surpassed them all — Cecrops, the Egyptian foundei ol Cecropia, the , , ■.. now known to the world is Athens. This greal hero was indeed much honored in ancient time-. hut not so much for the sake of his innate abilities as for b-.ihg tin- founder of the city, which afterwards became the first of the world in oratory, sculpture and literature. Bui could the posterit) oi this wise and good man have known how honored would havi b come hi- name fifty centuries after his death, i ertainly would have respected it more in their time. You ask how tribute is paid to the name and memory of Cecrops today? Bj calling the best ami oldesl society in Kentucky University, ami. probably, the widesl known society in the State, Ce- cropia.

Upon examination one dusty tome proves to be " The Transylvanian, or Lexington Literary Journal — January, 1829. " Only relic hunters and editors ever disturb it, but they find great pleasure in their n ean It appears that the fairs «. re against the magazine and the tirst publication of old Transylvania ended its • an after a brief exist- ence, only nine numbers having been published. The next recorded journalistic effort was " The Col- legian of Kentucky University — [une 1 72. " a monthly magazine published bv Peril lean, Christo- ■ an. Philothean, Union, and Cecropian Literary Societies. The institution was flourishing vigorously thru, and " The Collegian " did likewise for a short time but in September 1S73, its support became so meagre that it was allowed to sink into oblivion. Strange to say, the " boys " of those days were not saints, as we have so often been told, for in bold type are printed accounts of their many escapades, flirtations. Among those editors were many splendid writers, and as for jokes, they were jusl " chuck full of " em. " Twelve years had passed before the next journal came, and it died in its infancy: the Periclean, Cecropian and Philothean societies published five numbers of a monthly called ••The Atlantis, " begin- ning in December, 1885. Since February, 1887, the University has never been without good publica- tions. Then it was that the " Kentucky University Tablet " was born, and it continued to hold forth tor three years, when another child came to bless the institution. " I I 01 us, " a semi-monthly maga- zine, was tirst issued in June, [890, and until the following fune the two magazim ed reg- ularly. The last step in tin- publieati if a magazine was taken in the tall of 1891, when the " Tran- sylvanian " was formed by the union of the " Fo us " and the " I ' ablet.

The idea of publishing ;i weekly newspaper at Kentucky I niversity was not conceived until the latter part of August, [896, but it grew very rapidly and on the first Wednesday of the current ol year there was circulated on the campus a five-column folio bearing the suggestive name ol " The Cloverleaf " — the lucky emblem of the college. Its existence was due to an earnest desire " ii the pari of a few students to bring the main- students of the 1 niversity closer together by acquainting them with the doings ol each other and nong them that college spirit toward which so many fu- tile efforts had been directed. " The K. I . Enroll " had done a great deal by its bi-weekly appearance and hail partly worn a path for its successor, Inn the editors realized the immensity of their undertaking and began their labors with fear and trembling. Students, faculty ami Alumni were appealed to for aid and many cheerfully responded. ■ I eris worthy of his Inn-.

They have at all times advocated whatever they thought in In- beneficial to her and unsparingl) con- demned anything that they thought harmful. Athletics, literal - and Christian associations have been encouraged and supported.

IoS 4 z tl JkO give a Full account of the history, principles and purposes of the I. O. H. is to reveal what J A . has hitherto been unknown even, to the student body of K. U. The order is of very recent « JL » origin, hence il d — not command a long n cord of glorious achievements, with which to t» " - " • commvnd itselt to an exacting public. Neither can it silence scoffers and satisfv inquirers by pointing to a long list of ancestral worthies, tor the I. O. H. is without ancestry. It is tlie first origin- ation ot its name and nature known in the history of the world, whether social, collegiate, political or industrial. It is neither surprising or unjust then that the more credulous and skeptical among men, should demand reasons why it should be granted a place among the great organizations of this age. The I. O. II. was not instituted to advocate any particular reform nor to combat any certain evil. It does not owe its origin to blind fanaticism nor to a spasmodic effort at reform. It did not have its in- ception in political disappointment nor public discontent. It was not incubated in the smouldering em- bers of unholy ambition nor malignant revenge. It was not organized bv stealth in the dark hours of the night, but in the glaring light of a noon-day sun. The order stands for the promotion of all that is coducive to the public welfare and for the downfall ot all that is inimical thereto. It arose from that innate desire in the human heart for communion with fellow hearts. Its purposes are social, industrial, religious. Its underlying principles are broad and catholic. It is not a secret ociety. as its principles and workings are open to the world. Onlv in such matters as ceremonials for the confessing of degrees and in ordination is it secret. These most profound secrets are closely guarded in the Book of Solemn Mysteries. No uncircumcised eye is so much as allowed to get a glimpse at its covers. The hiding place of the goat and ghost is another secret. hile we form the youngest, we are by no means the weakest organization in the University, as may be seen by glancing at our membership roll. We have then our eyes to the future, and whether as Messenger, Knights or Royal Knights, we hope to so coduct ourselves that the noble name of Indus- trial Order of Hermenians will receive no reproach at our hands.

" during the Fall T rm ci ns imes of Foot-ball and " Shinney, " with large numbers on each side. Of course the lads oi [783 had i " have some fun, hut the record of their, games has nol been discovered. As earl) as 1 s s - we know that Foot-ball was played, for al thai tim : young [eff. Davis was a student at old Transylvania, and il i- recorded that he was not fond of the game. The game has always been popular, but n t until later years have there been regularly organized teams. The littli soldii 1 boys ol the A. i l. College have chief adversaries, and many a victory has been wrenched from them. The names of the famous heroes of the piir- .kin in former years are --til] preserved h incessant discussion " ti the campus and in the gym. McLellan, from Australia. i- reported to have been a wonder at " dribbling " and drop-kicking ; Wallace a king of half-backs; Corbetf, Williams, Moore and Woodard arc also famous, and everyone has heard of " Old Luke, the Human Plow. " Later there were King and Lawsori and Combs, the " Little Tiger, " and scores of others whose memory is still green among their worshippers. The most famous team was that ol ' 92, when every man was a star, although there have since been -Mine greater than the least of them. The teams have always been hampered by the opposition or indifference of the faculty, but in spite .-I such " tuff luck " a very good record has been made. Especial credit is due i those win., in the last tew years, have struggled manful!) to have •■Old K. IV " properly represented en the gridiron.

" HEN " town-ball " was in vogue the campus was, no doubt, the scene of many exciting con- Y ' ■ - : -- ' ■■■ ' as to how the boys of [783 occupied their spare moments in the spring we are grossly ignorant — unless they spun tops and played " kitsies " and " knucks. " As the pro- cess " i evolution brought basebarl out t ' " town-ball, " the interest in the game increased and the Uni- versity has alwavs had good teams. Our record in inter-collegiate games is a good one, bul it could easilj have been improved by a more universal participation In- the students. Conspicuous among those who belonged to former teams B veil, Wallace und Renick, while later we hear of Lawrence, Lawson, Briney, Beeler and Kemper. The pitching of Lawrence, the catching of Beeler and the work of Boswell on first are extravagantly praised. In ampionship of the Kentucky League rewarded the efforts of the team, and since the dissolution of the League victories preponderate. I nusual interest in baseball has been awakened during the season just closing by the formatii the Inter-Collegiate and Baseball-and-Track Association. The team, equipped with new suits, etc., has played some excellent ball, the most notable features being the tussle with Centre and the ignomin- ious defeat of the cad its. The work of Ludgate, the Ma(i)n(e)iac, in the box, " Laud} " behind the hat and " Bussy " with the stiek has been particularly noticeable. Baseball Seam of ' 97. B.Clay, Manager. E. T.

Christian Snfluenco in Ji. " . Christian influence in colleges, though t ften neglected, is of the greatest importance; and only when we realize tl mce of Christianity, can we have a proper conception i the import- ance of those influences which tend to make boys and girls Christians. An intellectual training is but a religious training is better. The combination of these two makes the well rounded char- . aracter worthy of admiration here, and oi rewardin heaven. Realizing the importance of the Christian life we must conclude that the college which presents superior advantages along this line must be the best place to send boys and girls that they may be properly fitted to fill honorable places in life, and in death to be prepared to stand among the saved. ■ hich pr -.m- tin- intellectual side only is not the complete college. It will do to prepare one for time, but for eternity it is a failure. Those win. h ve the education of young people under their control can not b , careful as to the religious character of t i ege to which they send. We believe that in no collegi is the Christian influence greater, of as great, as in k.murU Uni- versity. Our students are well behaved, and have always conducted themselves in such a manner as to have w..n tor the University a reputation of which any institution of learning may well In- proud. When we consider the influences, this i- not remarkable. All of our Professors are Christians, ten ol them are preachers; over one hundred of our boys are preparing for the mini-try. many ot these preach at regular appointments on Lord ' - Days; we have a you ng men ' s prayer-meeting, a missionary ty,a Volunteer Hand, a Y. M. C. A.., and V. W. C. A. These are all mighty influences to ele- the morals of the -indent body of Kentucky University. 13 ' Young Men ' s Ghristian. T ssociation.

A. at large is doing more for young men than any other one organization, and while this movement has so widely spread throughout every land, it is eminently befitting any institution of learning to support the Y. M. C. A., thus showing that the religious and moral sides of college life hold a prominent place and exert a wholesome influence on every department of college work. A Young Men ' s Christian Association was first regularly organized in Kentucky University in [889. From the first the Association had the sympathy of the entire faculty ami when called upon they have responded liberally and taken an active part. ' Until 1893 the Association moved from place to place, but at that time the gymnasium was built and some convenient rooms won- fitted up for its ex- clusive use. The Association is now in full touch with the movements among other college associations, such as the week of prayer for colleges, anil we are always represented by from one to four delegates at the Knoxville Conference, which is held for ten days in every June. The Association gives a reception on the lirst Friday night ot each session. There are speeches of welcome, refreshments are served. and an opportunity is given the students to get acquainted with one another. The regular weekly meetings are held on Thursday afternoon at 4 o ' clock. V. M. C. A and Y. W C A 2 oi n ? Woman ' s Christian Association. Uai- Mosley, President. Inez Hawkins, Vice-President.

And 1m long i- the " i Ml ' A A Young Women ' s Christian Association ought to begin its fair history with the magic words, ■•many years ago, " Inn owing to the short time since the doors of the college wen openei , and to the lack of interest during the first two or three years tl ciation was not organized until the first of December, 1895. One bright afternoon two or three of the girls sauntered leisurelj along the narrow path that leads from the college t " the gymnasium, ami. just because they did not have anytl in this wide world to do, they attended a prayer meeting held b) the young gentlemen in the " V . M. - . A. rooms. The meeting was an earnest ami sincere one; and not long after thi- these girls fell that a Y. . L ' . A. wa- a- necessary to an institution as a Y. M. C. A., and in their enthusiasm organized thi presi in association. ii Students ' 7 ss onary Society. The missionary interests in the University are represented bv the Students ' Missionary Society and the Students ' Volunteer Band. The Missionary Society has at present a membership of about forty, and is one of the strongest and most influential societies in the University. The work this year has been quite gratifying in mam respects, though there has not been as general an interest manifested to- ward the work among the students as in some former years. Seyeral missionary rallies have been held and these have been fairly well attended. The society has also succeeded in having lectures from a number ot the leading men of the brotherhood. Such lectures as those of Bros. McLain, Rains. Ram- bo and Muckley will long be remembered for the rich thought they contained and the missionary spirit they inspired. It is the object of the society to bring to Lexington each year the secretaries of the National and State societies. Besides maintaining the current expenses the furnishing fund was sufficiently increased to purchase a handsome carpet for the room, and it is very likely the hall will be papered before the close of this session. The officers for the year were: President. Dr. M. G. Buckner : Vice- President, Robert Stewart; Secretary. P. A. Davey ; Treasurer, Wm. Wood: Executive Committee, W. ( ' . Morro, Jesse Cald- well and F. E. Andrews. Zjfie Volunteer f ' - _, On March 20. 1804. a visit by D. Willard Lyon, traveling Secretary of the Student Volunteer Movement, led to the organization of a Volunteer Band among the students of the University. The little hand ot rive thus organized, met at regular intervals for prayer and study of the foreign fields in their relations to th- j Christian student. By the end of the years ' 0,4-05. fourteen months after organ- izing, the number had increased to twenty. During ' q - ' qu six names were added to the roll, while the present year closes with the addition of five, making a total of thirty-one in the cjurse of three ears. The objects of the Y. B. are first. To stimulate greater interest in world-wide missions. The watchword of the movement being " The world lor Christ in this generation. " Second, To encourage students to systematically study foreign fields, their needs, their difficulties and the successes of past and present missionaries. Third, bring before the student, while he is college and before he has determ- ined his life-work, the need of consecrated educated men to carry on the work established by Carey. Judson, Hamlin. Morrison, and Moffat. 136 EROS. N the top of blue Olympus, Up above tin ' clouds and tempests, Stands a throne where gods do homagi - And though there the son of Saturn Wields all day a golden scepter, And all night secure in slumber Nods within a shining nimbus, Yet I am the king of heaven. Though I sometimes play and gambol, Hither, thither, coming, going, As a child o ' er dells and meadows, Mingle ' mong the twigs and bran And betwixt mj thumb and finger Catch the bills of birds while singing : Though at midnight in the moonlight, Lamps of dew 1 hang " ii cobwebs, While in sport I skip and frolic Up and down the (ringy fernleaves That outspread their lacj dresses On the mosses of the woodland ; Though I loiter ' long 1 the brooklets, And there on their weed) margins Slip a dream beneath the eyelid Of a green frog mid the grasses, W a ch 1 1 i tii nod in drowsy stupor, Stan and peep about the rushes . Yel I am the king of heaven. Though I push off on the wat rs, ■ scaly shards of bei Sail the rippling, purling streamlets, O ' er whose dimpled, glassj faces, Blushing flowers dr. .op in slumber Decked in dew to greet the morning. I - they wake t . make their toilets, Creeping through their frescoed hallways, Sneak 1 to their vaulted chambers, Climb their stamens with a cobweb, St.al the pollen from their pouches, Thi ii slidi dow n upon their petals, Softly slip away in silen With the spoil upon m shoulder. Then I seek the apple-blossoms, There 1 flit among the branches : With bright butterflies I flutter, Fleck their fuzzy backs with silver, Paint their meal} wings with gold dust ; e the bees and pilfer nectar, While they hum about the 1 ims : 137 Pick the wax from oft their haunches, As they stand upon their flat heads. Sipping sweet, pellucid liquor In the tender huds halt " open. Then they tuss and crawl out backwards. With their hairy legs all sticky, With their heads all smeared with syrup, Sit and pout upon the tree-bark While I shake my sides with laughter. Thus I sometimes play and gambol, Hither, thither, coming, going, As a child o ' er dells and meadows, Vet I am the king of heaven. Though I never speak in council With the gods, nor sit in synod, Never ' tend their proud conventions, Boast no throne and boast no scepter. Have no crown with gems encrusted. Simply wear this wreath of myrtle That a little Xaiad plaited As we played along a runnel That o ' er golden sands and pebbles Chimes the shady haunts of Ida — Yet I am the king of heaven, Monarch sole of all creation. Marshal of the starry pageant. Sovereign of the constellations. I3S Of the singing spheres and comets That on high in fiery fervor Chafe the etherial plains of heaven. Though I wield no bolts of thunder, Own no coat of mail nor buckler. Wear no greaves, nor plate, nor helmet. Hear no sword, nor spear, nor truncheon. Yet I am the prince of warriors. When my arrows ride the breezes, Boys shun tops, and at their toilets, Lovers sigh and girls grow giddy ' Bout their bangs and ruffs and slippers. ' Bout their dimples and their dresses. Widows ' cheeks begin to blossom. Bachelors ' frocks are smug and tidy, Spinsters smerk through perfumed powder, Churls and lassies coo and whisper. Poets pipe their amorous ditties. Kings forget their crowns and scepters: Priests, their prayers; and laymen, missions Lawyers, fees; and doctors, patients; Fools, their folly : sages, wisdom ; Argus ' eyes are ever open, Hermes lingers with the sea nymphs, Atalanta stoops for apples, Dido smokes, and Helen wanders, Sappho quits her song in sadness, Cyclops, il ' icks : Ulysses, sirens ; Hercules his club and conquest, Pluto, shades; and Ceres, flowers; Mars, hi plume ; and Juno, scolding ; And himself the k i 1 1 t of heaven, (King in show bul n i in substani Chatting, singing, dancing, feasting, Laughs ami tip the Libyan beaker.
