Many, many years ago when New York was first
-settled by the Dutch, Washington Irving, a young
man full of exuberant spirits and literary fancies,
gave vent to his effervescent energy by publishing a
small periodical which he rightly named Salmagundi.
'This was formerly the name of an old Dutch dish
which consisted of a mixture of spices, chopped
meat, ,pickled herring, oil, vinegar, pepper and onions
As our paper is a mixture of a variety of subjects,
the reader can readily understand the significance of
-the name which our periodical bears.
As Irvingis object in publishing his magazine was
for the purpose of uplifting the literary ideals of the
.age in which he lived, so we, as a school can do no
better than to imitate the example of so famous an
author as Washington Irving.
Thus, We do hereby make known to the world our
object of this modern 4"Salmagundi" just as the
Writer of the former 44Salmagundi" announced:--
ffsimply to instruct the young, reform the old, correct
the town, and castigate the age? D
We owe much of the success of this number of
our paper to Miss Norrell and Miss Ackerson in get-
ting such a goodly number of advertisements.
The school wishes to express its heartfelt sympathy
for Miss Fern Price, a member of the E class, in her
recent bereavement in the loss of her brother.
On Oct. 13, 1908, not only the school but the
whole community was sa.ddened by the death of Amy
M. Brown, a member of the Senior class. Miss
Brown was not only a beautiful Christian young lady,
but Wasvery clever intellectually. Her' class feels
the loss of this bright, brave spirit very keenly. '
School spirit is that indeiinable something that
makes us feel that this school is our school, that this
is our Alma Mater, that our success is her pride, that
her sorrow is our woe. It helps us recognize her
worth, to be charitable toward her shortcomings, to
remain loyal to her to the last, to work for her, iight
for her, live for her and if necessary, die for her.
It makes the student body a unit, it inspires the indi-
vidual to honest endeavor, and lills every member of
the student body and faculty with that kind of cour-
age that goes hand in hand with unity, loyalty and
good fellowship. I .
Have you this school spirit? If you haven't it
develop it by coming out of yourself, by doing your
share in promoting school activities, and by meeting
every school problem with the cheerful smile of the
optimist. . Find out for yourself that the study of
books is only a part of school life.
Try for the school basket ball team, Write for the
school paper, take an interest in the social life, be
attentive to the chance visitors and the prospective
student, work for a class part. In short do your
duty to yourself and to your school, and some day you
will find that you possess that priceless jewel-school
Early Books. if
Long ago when the savages used leaves of trees on
which they etched rude images of the beasts they
hunted or the arrows they shot, the first ' steps were
taken toward the making of books. .
The Peruvians, Chinese, and some of the negro
tribes kept their earliest records by means of knotted
4 -Arn... '
-- ...V .. .44-Q
cords. Strings of various colors, with knots of differ-
ent sizes and variously arranged, contained the na-
tional history of these peoples.
As it is not the nature of man to be contented
with these imperfect means of recording great events,
the old book of perishable, green leaves was soon
exchanged for one of tough bark, and this Was later
discarded for more durable materials.
Records which men were anxious to preserve were
engraved on slabs of rock or cut into plates of
metal. In some ancient countries may still be found
tombs and monuments, on which are inscriptions,
giving the historical events of these nations.
The Egyptian, Greek and Roman scholars wrote
many of their early works on rolls of parchment, or
of papyrus, a kind of paper which was made from
the outer layer of a tall reed found in the swampy
parts of the river Nile.
A common form of the book in Greek and Roman
days, also, consisted of tablets of wood, ivory, or
metal coated thinly with wax, on which the writer
scratched the symbols of his thoughts with an iron
or bronze bodkin, called the stilus. A
The people of Mexico kept their early records on
strips of cotton cloth, upon which were painted
flowers, trees, animals and many other objects which
had some symbolic meaning. The diierentcolors in
which these pictures were painted also had some par-
ticular meaning. .
The skins of various animals were tanned into
smooth leather which afforded the people a durable
material for their books and documents. Out of this
class of writing materials came the parchment and
the vellum, which is still much used by lawyers on
account of its lasting qualities. Parchment is made
from sheepskin, and vellum is a liner material made
from calf skin.
Perhaps the richest specimens of the ancient man-
uscripts are copies of the Gospels! written on purple
vellum with letters of silver and the sacred 'names
Written in gold.
These were written in the eighth, ninth and tenth
Drawing and painting were undoubtedly the earliest
methods of conveying ideas in books, and still pic-
tures and sketches aid in many of our books, at the
present day, to convey a clearer meaning. r
The link which connects such picture-writing with
the use of the alphabetic symbols, lies V in the hiero-
glyphic writings of the Egyptians.
This working out of a system of writing, very
curious and complex, was perhaps the greatest
achievement of the ancient Egyptians. Just as We
have two forms of letters, one for printing and an-
other for writing, so the Egyptians employed three
forms of script: the hieroglyphics,-in which the pic-
tures and symbols were carefully drawn,-a form
generally employed in monumental rnscriptionsg the
hieretio, asimplii-led form of the hieroglyphics, and
the demotic,a still further simplification of the .hie-
ratic form. Then by very slow degrees this hiero-
glyphic system was altered until certain signs became
phonetic, that is, expressive of sounds, not always of
some object. The Phoenicians formed out of these
phonetics the first pure alphabet. '
There is no evidence that the Saxons brought any
written language w1th them to Britain. Before the
time of Alfred there were no schools except in 'the
monasteries, which were institutions of learning as
well as of religion.
The monks showed great skill in copying and illu-
minating books upon vellum, or parchment. These
books were in the form of rells and it is interesting
to note that our word VOLUME is derived from the
Latin word VOLVERE, to roll. A vast amount ot
hard labor was expended upon the making of the initial
letters. Angelic and human figures, birds, beasts,
and fishes, flowers, shells, and leaves were ali pressed
into the service of the patient monks.
When the book was finished, which might be the
work of years, the title was often painted in red or
some other brilliant colored ink at the bottom of the
last page. The I headings of the various chapters
were also written for the most part in red ink and the
covers of the books were richly illuminated. A
The art of printing was introduced into England
from Belgium, by lVilliam Caxton, in 1474. He set
up a printing oiiice near Westminster Abbey and one
of the first books printed was a translation from the
French called the HGarne and Playe of the Chesseii
Sixty-live works, translated and original are assigned
to the pen and press ot Uaxton. When he died in
1491, his assistants carried on the great work he had
These were the men who printed our earliest Eng-
lish books, which were of so much importance in the
educational life of the people or England by dissem-
inating the language of that country.
The types of these early printers have been multi..
plied by millions, and their presses by hundreds, un-
til at the present day, books for which Claxton charged
a piece of gold, can be purchased for a silver coin,
A BELL, '10,
The Trip Up-Stream.
One Friday in early September, Mr. Merriman an-
nounced, that on the next Monday the Normal School
pupils would take the much talked-of trip up the
Presqus Isle stream.
The following Monday dawned bright and clear
and promised to be a hot day in town. For once in
the historyof dormitory life every one arose when the
bell rang, and, to the credit of the Normal school be
it said that nearly all were ready at nine olclock, the
time appointed for our departure. When we arrived
at the boat-house we found the steamboat already
launched with a hotfire beneath the boiler. Just as
the announcement was made that we would start in a
few minutes, the boat was obscured by a dense fog
caused by steam from the boiler. When this had
cleared, it was found that the little glass tube, show-
ing the height of the Water in the boiler, had broken,
necessitatinga half-hour's delay on the part of the
impatient students. After what seemed hours of
waiting, all those, except the ten who were to go in
canoes, embarked in the steamer. 'Wefully expected
a prosperous trip to the picnic ground but when We
were fairly out in mid-stream the boat suddenly
stopped. Afzer a few minutes of waiting we pro-
ceeded on our way.
The stream is beautiful at any time but in early
September it looks its best. Its banks are lined with
large maple, spruce, and tir trees, which, with the
shrubs and rich grasses form a dense green bank.
Here and there a striking contrast is made by bits of
vivid color betokening the brilliant reds and yellows
of later autumn.
Arriving at Mr. Willett's camp, which had been
opened for our use, we were assisted to the mainland
by the canoeists who had arrived earlier, though they,
also, had had troubles to contend with, the brisk wind
having made the water very rough, just enough to
make the trip exciting. , V
The morning was spent by the pupils in house-
work, in paddling, and in investigating the surround-
ings. Miss Jordan busied herself with her accus-
tomed letter-writing and Miss Gussman found time to
cover a paste-jar with rafiia, that much-loved C?j work
of the F's. We wondered if this economy of time
on their part was a plan to set a good example to the
students. But a see-saw made by placing a board
over the stump of a tree, lured these two staid teach-
ers with its pleasures and soon they might be seen
teetering solemnly up and down on this board for the
special benefit of an enthusiastic and admiring
audience. 1 ,
Preparations for dinner proved m01'9 attractive
than anything else and soon a jolly, hungry crowd sat
downto a bountiful repast which had been provlded
from the larder of Normal Hall. .
After dinner was over and the dishes dutifully
washed by a few faithful ones, canoeing and search-
ing-forx birch bark were the chief forms of amuse-
ment, except for Miss Davis who found things rather
dull and slept away the hours of the bright afternoon.
Many 'canoe loads went up the stream about a mile
to Mr. Phair's camp and to another cottage Where 21
higher 'see-saw tempted some to partake of the
amusement of the morning. Soon all returned to the
camp and supper was served.
Alittle before sunset we started for home and merry
songs rang out over' the peaceful iwater-water S0
clear and quiet that 'every tree and shrub was re-
flected init as in a mirror. i i
It was a tired but happy crowd that wended its
way slowly back to Normal Hall after one of the most
happy days in the history of the school.
Chief among .American authors stands Ralph Waldo
Emerson, Wlilie sage- of .Concord.,' ' Morepeople
have been taught to think through his influence than
through that of any other modern writer.' . r
In 1847, this celebrated poet and essayist, made a
lecture trip to England. While there he delivered a
course of lectures, six of which he afterward selected
and gave to the 'world in the form of 'fRepresenta.tive
Men." A Q . .
Emerson loved to think of men of power, men
who would be masters of any situation, and those
fitted in strength of mind to be types worthy to. be
held before the world. Such are the characters given
us in this essay. r ' ' r '
Those whom Emerson chose and exalted in this
work are, 4'Plato, ' the Philosopliergll HSwedenbdrg,
the Mystic," '4Montaigne, the Skeptic," "Shakes-
peare, the Poet," 4'Napoleon, the -man of the
world," and "Goethe, the Writer.'7 4 ' I' '
Theauthor iirsttells us of. the uses of the great.
He shows us, that but for our leaders in thought, but
for the strength and veracity ofgood men, the world
would notbe a wholesome place in which to live. We
should have no high ideals. He says that great men

exist that there may be greater men. In every de-
partment of life we see the service and inspiration of
vigorous-minded men. But While we should strive to
do good and to achieve greatness, We must avoid
copying others,-the greatness must be inherent in
ourselves. 44He is great who is what he is from
Nature and who never reminds us of others."
The types chosen by Emerson as representative
men are those whose thoughts and lives stand for
something definite. He has chosen them on account
of their sincerity to great principles.
His own prejudices and preferences are shown very
clearly in this essay, which is his strongest and most
What a Teacher Should Read.
A teacher must read widely for his own sake and
for the sake of the children whom he teaches. Lord
Bacon has said, fflfteading maketh a full man." But
there is so much literature printed in these days that
a teacher must take care to select what will be a ben-
efit and not a hindrance to him. -
A great deal of informational reading must be done
by the teacher, for he must know far more about the
subject which he is to teach than the pupil knows.
Pupils are impressed by genuine and exact knowledge
and give more ready respect and obedience to
teachers who have it than to those whose knowledge
is shallow and inaccurate. There are now so many
great works in history, science, and geography that
every teacher has access to work of this kind.
N ext in importance to informational literature
comes the educational Not to know sornethingof
other times, the stories of great lives, the discussion
of social' and political theories,is to show one's self
of poor and mean attainment. A good knowledge of
educational history gives one a deeper respect for the
past and makes him more modest.
Every teacher needs to read psychology for he must
make.a study of the individual child. Teachers are
beginning to see that ,children should not be treated
as a whole, but that each child must be studied sepa4
A teacher must not neglect to tread some of the
general literature of our times, for it is quite em-
barassing to be found ignorant of what is produced in
this field. There is a danger that too much time be
spent in reading the works of fiction, and no person
who spends more than half the time, which he gives
to reading, in the reading of prose fiction, will come
to be truly cultivated. But fiction should not be en-
tirely neglected for it enlarges our acquaintance,
quickens our sympathies, removes us from the unme-
diate circumstances of ordinary life, and so makes us
better able to bear the irritations when we go back to
them. The work of authors such as Eliot, Thackeray,
and Hawthorne lead us into good society and tenflrto
cure narrowness and provincialism.
The teacher must keep in touch with the current
history of our times, but this part of literature is not
so important as the others, and less time should be
given to it. A teacher. should be especially careful
not to spend his time in reading the trashy contents
of the newspapers as this sort of reading does much
harm. In this respect, magazines and journals are
a great deal better than newspapers.
Therefore tl1e teacher should read the different
kinds of literature, giving special attention to those
books which have todo with methods of teaching,
educating and uplifting the young.
Q AMY BROWN, 1909.
Presque .Isle Me., Jan. 1, 1909.
MY DEAR EMMELINE: W
This is the first day of the New Year and I am
going to begin it by writing you a long letter. I have
resolved to be a better correspondent henceforth.
There is so much' to tell you that I hardly know
where to begin but I think I will.tell you- first of my
visit to Limestone.
You have probably. heard me speak of my friends,
Elsie, Mary, Nellie and Harriet. Well, Elsie invited
the four of us to spend Christmas with her at Lime-
stone. N ellie, however, decided to divide her holi-
days with us and her aunt' at Fort rFairfield.
School closed Wednesday, the 23rd, and we started'
on our trip Thursday afternoon. We took the train,
which was two hours late, for Caribou, and were met
there by E1Sie's brother, who was to drive us to Linge-
-stone, a distance' of ten miles.. .
V As soon as he saw us he became very much excited.
I suppose the effect of seeing so many beautiful vis-
ions, dressed in their best iinery, rather unnerved
him. Be that as it may, he was certainly fiurried. for
what did he do but rein the horses between two
tracks. There was nothing for us to do but to jump
out into the deep snow while the horses were beinv'
- turned. Trouble was 1n store for us and in the
SALMAGUNDI l l
process of turning, the cross-har broke. About this
time the Llmstone train whistled by and confusion
reigned supreme. The rig was finally tied together
with ropes procured from the station and, by taking
turns riding, Elsie and her brother reached a black-
smith shop While the rest of us waited for their re-
turn. This accident delayed us another two hours so
that instead of reaching Limestone at five o'clock it
was eight before we arrived at Elsiels home.
Mrs. T. had prepared a nice supper for us and we
spent the remainder of the evening in getting ac-
quainted with the family.
Ernest, we were especially interested in, as one of
his brothers told us that he was in the habit of
Ucatching his balance" every morning. He lost it
one day which caused merriment on our part but
it mortilied him very much.
The next day was Christmas. We were up early
and had a delicious breakfast ef pancakes and maple
syrup, pork steak and potatoes, hot biscuit, doughnuts
and coffee. ,
After breakfast, Elsie told us that We would be
obliged to Work. She said that she always planned to
have her visitors earn their board. You know how I
hate to wash dishes, so I hunted around for the
broom and began to sweep. Mary anl Harriet
washed the dishes while Elsie helped her mother pre-
pare the Christmas dinner. Such a dinner I never
expect to eat again. This is what we had: turkey
and cranberry sauce, chicken pie, potatoes, rasp-
berry, strawberry, blueberry, custard and squash pie,
cream pie, nut cake, fruit cake, hermits and coffee.
After dinner We helped unload the Christmas tree
which Mr. and Mrs. T. had trimmed the night be-
fore. We girls found that we had not been forgotten.
The next day was Saturday, the day we were to
drive to Fort Fairfield for Nellie. 'We left Limestone
about noon with a span of horses and a two-seated
sleigh. It was snowing which made us rather late in
arriving at Fort Fairfield much to Nellie's disap-
pointment as her aunt had planned to give us an oys-
ter stew. We did not have time to stay as We had
previously accepted an invitation to supper at Mrs.
Lis., Elsie's sister. We took the oysters with us,
however, and had them the next day so you see We
were determined to have all that belonged to us.
Besides us five girls, Mrs. L. had invited her two
brothers and cousin, in whom Harriet became inter-
ested immediately,aud when he offered to take her
home she accepted at once. We spent the evening
in playing games so that it was quite late Wben we
reached Tis but Harriet was an hour later than We
I 2 SALIVIAGUNDI
were. We had great fun teasing her about it. We
asked her how many corners she turned. "Oh," she
said, 4fWe turneda number of timesfl Elsie then
spoke up and asked if her mind had been so engrossed
that she had been unable to discover the fact that
there was only one street in Limestone. We all de-
cided that she had been riding up and down the same
street and upon quizzing the other party we found
that to be the case.
Sunday we all went to ride which was our means of
entertainment for the day. We tried to rest a little
as We were to drive to Caribou the next morning to
take the train for ,Presque Isle.
Monday came with a snowstorm but as we had been
out in a snowstorm before, it did not dampen our
spirits at all. We had not been on the road lon:
when a blizzard came down upon us. Mary and
Harriet had their new merry widow hats, so we gave
up our only umbrella to themg It did not serve its
purpose, however. The wind blew the snow upon
the rims of the hats until the poor girls feared the
weight of it would break their necks. Vile thought it
served them right and hoped they would profit by the
lesson. Nevertheless we took pity on them and
helped them shovel it oif. y
' When we reached Caribou we were a very dilapi-
dated looking crowd but our train was late again
which gave us plenty of time to rearrange ourselves.
We were very tired after so much excitement and
were glad to get back to N ol-mai Hall. 4
I have been true to my- word and have written you
a long letter. Iycanlt say about its being inigeresting.

We have received very few exchanges this term,
but hope to have added more to our list. before the
next issue. Those we have, have been readvwith in-
terest and we shall expect them to come again.
We wish to congratulate Aroostook Central Insti-
tute onthe "Aroostookan." It is 'a bright and en-
tertaining paper,iand contains some excellent ideas.
Thef'Northern Light" from Fort Fairfield High
School, is a welcome paper. It has some interesting
short stories, and also a fine article on shorthand.
The "Mirror" from Patten Academy contains a
good historical sketch of Patten.
A The '4Pinnacle"Erskinei Academy, South China,
Maine, is a well-written' paper, but we are sorry to
note the absence of an exchange column.
Two good articles on composition Writing are
found in the ?fBul1etin'lfrom Ashland High School.
We see by the Alumni column in the '4Norm,ll
that Presque Isle High School has kept Well in touch
With its Alumni. A
We have enjoyed reading HOak Leaves," published
by the students of Oak Grove Seminary, Vassalboro,
Maine. Its neat and attractive cover may be con-
sidered a fair sample of the contents.

-At present the school is supporting but two
branchesof athletics,,4-lawn tennis and basket ball.
Teams in the other departments will, however, be
organized whenever conditions warrant it.
In the fall of 1908, the money remaining in the
treasury after the basket ball season was over, was
used to lay outa tennis court. Many exciting sets
were played during the lirst part of 'the fall term.
The exercise seemed to act like a tonic on the slim
ones like Hall, Norrell and Gould, while Allingham
declares that lawn tennis is a great flesh reducer.
Next spring the court will be improved and an
effort made to arrange a tennis tournament with
teams from near-by schools.
When school opened this year, athletics were re-
newed with vigor and-gave promise of success, owing
to the entering class and the aid the Association re-
ceived frorn, them. Although basket-ball was the
leading sport, several games' of lawn tennis and cro-,
quet were enjoyed during' the season for out-door,
games. , , I .
The lirst basket-ball game was played November
19, 1908, between the entering and Senior classes,
during the latter part of the fall term, resulting in
victory for the entering class. Both teams deserved
credit but ' the Freshmen showed their
over the Seniors due to then fast playing of the

two teams were well matched and good playing was
df-ne on both sides. The tirst half the score was
four to four, but the second half A, S. N. S. gained
two points and A. C. I. one, making -the score live to
six in favor of A. S. N. S. The following line up

January 2, 1909, another class game was played,

game did not help the teams financially it gave them
practice in playing.
A return game was played with A. C. I. at Blaine,
January 13, the line up being the same as that .of
the former game. with the exception of Syphers, who
played R. F., while Lavine played Center. Although
A. S. N. S. was beaten by a score oi' seven to eight,
the trip was much enjoyed by all and it is hoped a
rubber game will be played before the basket ball
The next game in order was played with Patten

rweather was inclement our team started out with
courage high. .Even if A. S. N. S. did meet with
defeat at the hands of ,Patten by a score of seven to

,Miss Newell, a missionary lately returned from
India, visited this school Oct. 30, 1908. She gave a
very interesting talk about her work in India.
Prof. Charles Davidson, head of the Department
of Education at the University of Maine, visited
school January 23, and gave several interesting talks
to theifstuden ts.
In the afternoon he lectured on '4Teaching English
1n the Public Schools," at the High school building.
Prof. Davidson has had a very wide experience
both as a teacher and as an executive educational
ofiicer and was thus able to give a practical answer to
the many seemingly puzzling problems of the teach-
ers in this vicinity.
We extend our deepest sympathy to Caribou in the
loss of its new High school building which was to
have been occupied soon. The building was very
attractive in design and convenient in arrangement
and Principal Wheeler and the students had long
looked 'forward to occupying it.
Reports are continually reaching' us of the l pros-
perity of the new Alaskan country and we read glow-

there. To the young men and women just graduating
from our colleges and Normal schools, these reports
seem to mean an easy way to get rich and each year
many set out to conquer these new fields.

was decided in favor of the huugries

not long before the coffee was boiling and the
feast prepared. The appetites in that crowd were
simply enormous, but of course it was largely due to
the long drive in the open air and the exercise. It
was a lesson learned by all that a hearty meal before
climbing a mountain does not always produce the
best results. Consequently the climb was by slow
and painful progress and it was with joy to all when
the top was reached. The clearness of the day ren-
dered Mt. Katahdin visible and several other points
of interest as well. After the summit had been well
explored and all had rested, the descent was made,
needless to say in much less time than the ascent.
The return trip was by another road, supposed to be
avery little longer than the other, but was found to
be much longer, so that the drivers, who by the way,
deserve special mention for the manner in which they
handled their teams, were obliged to use more per-
suasion. It was past six o'cloclr when the dormitory
was reached and it was a tired, sunburned party that
appeared in the dining room when the meal was half
over. The trip was pronounced a success by all and
all are ready to go again.
- At the end of the- fall term tl1e Senior class had an
Heati' consisting of -shrimp wiggle, saltines, peanut

WhiPP9d'CI'6am pie, grapes, bananas and chocolates.
Besides this, a Wonderful layer cake, frosted with

by Mrs. Merriman. Needless to say breakfast wasn't
very much appreciatedthe next morning. T

The members of the Senior class held a supper in
the vesiry of the Free Baptist church. The food was
generously contributed by people of the town. The

Another enjoyable affair was the I-Iallowe'en party.
The first of the evening the kitchen, dining room and
parlor of Normal Hall were all scenes of joyous fes-
tivity, but all assembled in the parlor later where the
program was carried out. Instead of the usual at-
tractive chandeliers the lights peered through hideous
masks and all around the room were grinning J ack-a-
lanterns. From the 'Walls there appeared more grin-
ning skulls, gruesome cross-bones and Witches
mounted on broom sticks. In a corner of the reading
room a gypsy had pitched her tent and here the
guests assembled eager to learn their fate. The
lights were dim about the weird tent but one caught
glimpes of the svvarihy skin, coal black eyes, straight
black hair and gay colored gown of the gypsy maid
as she read the palms outstretched before her. The
usual Hallo'We'en stunts were performed with the
usual mirth and laughter While at ' the same time in-
teresting things were going on in the kitchen of
V Normal Hall. They were so interesting that the sev-
eral. young ladies delegated to be cooks, were con-
stantly receiving offers of assistance from all quarters.
It is said that 4fToo many cooks spoil the broth," but
H19 Same H1161 doesn't prove true with candy for
nearly all assisted in pulling and anyone will tell you
it was delicious candy. There were quantities of it,
JUOO, and Plrbig bowl of pop-corn and nice' red apples,
so that it was necessary to lay aside the festivities for
awhile. The latter part of the evening was devoted
to games and the magic spell of the witches lay hold
upon some while others looked on in Wonder. Before
eleven o'clock the rooms were vacant and still. Not
alfvltch Ora SYPSY to be seen anywhere and every-
thllnpg Seemed undisturbed. Was this the work of the
SALMAGUNDI 2 7
witches too? No doubt broom-sticks pushed by nim-
ble witches had something to do with it.
After along and heated discussion on the time for
the customary class spread, the illustriousE class
finally came to the decision that the proper time for
such a fete was the day after our return from the
Christmas holidays. There was a variety of sugges-
tions submitted for class approval but the final one
that was accepted was, although a little bit from the
ordinary and owing to the many discouraging diffi-
culties which the E arithmetic class has to contend
with it should include the entire arithmetic class,
which, of course, included our teacher, Miss Davis,
who appeared at her best. With Tuesday evening
in view our Worthy matron, Miss Kelley, was con-
sulted as she had previously offered us her assistance
and the preparations were talked over. The tables
were placed together, making one long table across
an end of the Hall dining room. When the six
o'clock dinner bell rang, the class assembled about
the well'-laden table, our teacher acting as hostess.
As our class comprises but one boy he was given the
next seat of honor, while the others occupied the
remaining chairs. Withoiit an exception every one
did justice to the repast, while jokes and lively con-
versation made the meal a very enjoyable one.
Although it was a laborious task for the E
arithmeticclass to climb the stairs to their rooms
that night all felt they were amply repaid from the

He portrayed strong characters, weak characters,
noble characters and tempestuous characters. It has
been said that he had more magnanimity than any
other poet, and certainly more of it has been shown
in HHamlet" than in any other play. ,
Hamlet, the young son of the late King of Den-
mark, comes home two months after his fatherls
death to find his mother married to his father's
brother, a most unscrupulous man. This is a great
trial to the young man, not only because he has lost the
crown which rightfully belonged to him, but because
his mother had married so soon after her husbandls
death. He is' very doubtful also of the manner of
his fatherls death. He believes that his uncle was
the cause of it, in order that he might gain the crown.
Hamlet is not a character marked by any great
strength of will, but he is a youth capable of very
decided action. He is a student of a philosophical
turn of mind, and like Brutus is the victim of an
overmastering passion. The burden of the terrible
duty of avenging his father's death is laid upon him,
for which he feels himself unprepared, as is plainly
shown when he said:
f4The time is out of joint, 0 cursed spite,
That ever I was born to set it right?
His reflective tendency and his will, which alter-
nates between almost complete inactivity and tits of
excited energy, disqualifying him for action. He is
naturally a sensitive youth and the knowledge that
his mother has so hastily married his uncle is a pain-
ful shock. When he discovers that his father has
been so foully ,murdered by one who has become his
successor, and that the injunction is laid upon him to
avenge the crime,+this together with repulses he re-
ceives frofn Ophelia, causes 'a deep melancholv to lay
hold of his spirits, and life looks dark and sad to him.
He, knows that the,King suspects him of knowing the
Carefully guarded Secret, and he is aware that he is
surrounded by spies. Partly to baffle them, and
partly to conceal his true self, he assumes the part of
onp whose wits ghiwe. SQ11e' astray. Horatio is the
gilgpilljgg Wappmhepregards as a loyal friend. As
reorargs hervaz lough he loves her truly, he at times
e no more honest or loyal to him, than
his mother has been to his dead father. '
In Hamlet there is great power of sudden and des-
. 4' v
llefate a1t1on,and when it befrms to dawn on him
destroy him he arouses himself and outwits the king
and again, aftei the bu11al of Ophelia, he shakes off
the melancholy which broods over him and arouses
himself to the play of swords with Laertes, and at
last, with Strength which is thoroughly aroused be-
fore its final extinction, he accomplishes the punish-
ment of the malefactors.
Hamlet is one of Sbakespearels most admirable
characters. He is portrayed under very trying cir-
cumstances, yet he is scarcely ever guilty of an action
not in accordance with his station. He certainly is a
dutiful S001 21 Sympathetic friend, a merciful enemy,
and a-model lover, always acting as he thinks best for
the object of his affections.

The Silver Bay Report.
We are more or less familiar with the Young Woni-
enls. Christian Association, the great organization
which does so much for the uplifting of womanhood
throughout the World and whose method of work is
similar to that of the Young Menis Christian Associ-
ation. ' -
There are various departments under the control uf
a National Board. Among the members of this
Board are numbered such women as Mrs. Thomas
Gladding, Mrs. John R. Mott, Mrs. Itobert E. Speer,
Miss Helen Miller Gould and others Whose education
and experience especially tit them for the work. In
order to systematize and make the work effective
there are diiferent branches to each of which are
assigned certain fields of labor.
When We consider the dangers of city life, we may
understand something of the importance of the City
Department. I n cities of any size is located a Young
Womenls Christian Association building Where girls
who come to these centers as strangers, may find a
home. Pleasant rooms and good meals are provided
at a nominal cost, employment is found, and instruc-
tion given along various lines such as domestic sci-
ence, dressmaking, millinery. At the railroad sta-
tions representatives of the organization are ready to
conduct girls to a place of safety. Then there is the
charitable Work, as a result of which the right kind- of
guardianship in every Way is given to girls who come
to the city alone. '

Student Secretary of India, have visited us from
time to time during the last five years.
Each year a conference convenes at different places
inthe United States where the delegates from sev-
eral schools meet for Bible study, mutual help and in-
spiration. The one in which we are most inter-
ested is the Silver Bay Conference, to which our
society by dintof hard work and sacriiice on the part
of its members, has sent one or more delegates each
year,--two students and one teacher being sent in

At dawn we were passing ,thlwugh the beautiful

time to time. The pebbles on its bed were white
and smooth and the sparkling water rippled over
them in its journey down the valley. When we
came to 'a level stretch there was a considerable fall
as at Miller's and Shellburne. About live o'clock we
reached H oosac Tunnel and for tive miles saw noth-
ing but the interior of the car. As we emerged, old
Greylock met our View clear .and distinct in the
morning light. After ia wait of over an hour at Troy
we proceeded to Lake George and by sitting in the
rear car avoided changing at .Saratoga and Fort Ed-
ward. NVe instinctively felt that the groups of girls
who gathered from Troy onward were bound for
Silver Bay. i ' ' '
We arrived at Lake George or Caldwell about one
o'clock and as the boat was not due to start un-til four,
we had ainpletime to remove the stains of travel
and to explore this historic region.
On the right as we left the train the blue wa ters of
the HI-Ioly Lake" met our view. It lies along the
southeastern margin of the Adirondacks and has
gathered within itself a part of all the beauties ot' the
Great Wilderness, combining the grandeur ofits wild-
est mountain lakes with the quiet loveliness of its
peaceful valleys. t It rightfully holds the title "Queen
of American Watersfl A shoitdistance from the
track on an elevation of ground north of Fort George
stands Battle Monument. It was erected bv the
Society of Colonial Wars of the State of New York
and unveiled Sept. 8, 1903. The figures represent
General Sir VVillian1 Johnson and the Mohawk Chief,
King Hendrick. Un the west side of the die is the
inscription 'fBattle of Lake George, Sept. 8, 177537
On theinorth side overlooking the lake is the follow-
ing: 4+Coniidence inspired by this victory was of in-
estiniahle value to the American army in the war of
the Revolution." Facing the east the inscription is
as follows: - , -
H4The Society of Colonial Wars erected this monu-
ment to commemorate the victory of the 'Uolonial
forces under Gen. William Johnson and their Mo'
hawk allies under Chief Hendrick, over the French
regulars 'commanded by Baron Dieskau with their
Canadian and Indian allies."

little way outside of the old fort dock may be seen an
old hulk with blackened ribs and keel half hidden in
the sand, which is supposed to have been one Ol the
number sunk by Vaudreuil in February, 1757. Shell
and cannon balls have been taken from it at different
times and in 1820 two small cannon were removed
from the wreck. The site is included in the spacious
grounds of the handsome Fort William Henry Hotel.

recognize the names perpetuated on and around the

where the Indians -obtained their water to drink.
Bloody Pondlies atthe left of the railroad track ap-
proaching the lake. The steamers are called Horicon
and Mohican. Uncas names a landing and a hotel in
the vicinity of Silver Bay. The steamer passes
through the Narrows where the scoutis party was fle-
scried by Montcalmis men and fired upon.
Shortly after the train arrived bringing delegates
from the east a.nd south, the steamer left the landing
for Silver Bay. Miss Brooks, who had been visiting
her sister in Palmer, Mass., joined us here.

th her megaphoue
standing on thegpiazza steps of the hotel directed us
to the dining-room. A young lady approached us as
soon as we were seated and asked 'where we were
from. lVhen We told her, she said, VO yes, I have
been looking for you,7' and passed us our meal tickets
and registration cards. We pinned the tickets on our
dresses as they had to be in evidence at meal time to
insure our admittance to the dining-room, After
supper we were admitted a few at atime-to the foyer
of the hotel. Passing to one table we left our regis-
tration card, to another our railroad coupon and were
given a check in exchange, enabling us to procure
the return tickets. We were assigned our rooms and
received the key from the clerk, got our baggage if it
came unchecked and Went upstairs. Thus iive hun-
dred people were fed and sheltered in an incredible
short. space of time-no pushing or crowding or im-
patience. As many delegates as possible were ac-
commodated in the hotel while the others were
assigned rooms in Overlook, a long narrow cottage
named because of its situation on the mountain-side
higher than the other buildings and in several small
cottages near by. All meals were served in the hotel.
At the left of the hotel was situated the beautiful
new auditorium which was destroyed by lire the night

so that members of different creeds could meet with
their friends of similar interests.
Monday at 8 oiclock a president's council met to
brine together the presidents of the diiferent socie-
ties- at 9 o'clock an auditorium meeting was preside l
over by Miss Wilbur, a National Secretary. Dr.
Wilbert White talked on the importance of Bible
study, Mr. Murray on the importance of Mission
study, Miss Wilbur on the Opportunity for the Asso-
ciation, Mrs. Gladding on the Relation of the Local
to the National and World Work. At 10 o'clock the
Mission study classes were organized. Several
courses were offered for college work and one for
preparatory schools. This We three joined since it
seemed to be what we most needed in this line. At
11:15 the Bible classes were in session in the different
halls. Dr. Hulleytaughta class on the Psalms, Dr.
White on Old Testament Institutions, Dr. McConnell
on Christian Fundamentals, Rev. John McDowell on
the Life of Christ, Mi-as Russel, a class for prepara-
tory schools, on the Life of Christ. Rev. Mr. Jan-
vier who has spent a large part of his life in India
was the speaker of the evening at the general audito-
rium meeting. '
The Mission and Bible study classes met each
morning and there was an auditorium meeting in the
evening and often in the morning. Every other
evening delegation meetings were held at which all
v the members of one delegation if a larve one and of

two or three if small, exchanged impressions that
had been helpful to them from the sermons of the

ceeded. to Baldwin in launches and were conveyed b
coaches through the village of Ticonderoffa to thi
Fort live miles beyond. In the dis D

spread out before our gaze. Just before we reached
the Fort the carriages were stopped so that we might
read the inscription on a tablet erected by the Noeyv
York Historical Association to the memory of the
time at the Fort. A few of the party were advent-
urous enough to explore the underground passages
they found which were probably the storage places
for ammunition, and ways of egressto the lake. The
picturesque old ruins aroused in us memories of the
brave deeds of daring when two great nations strug-
gled for the control of the 4'Gateway of the North."
The important social event of the week is College
Day. Each delegation prepares a 4'stunt" and gives
it on the lawn in front of the hotel in the presence
of all the guests. The college and school colors are
displayed in unique ways and each vies with the other
to make the most attractive appearance. School
songs and yells are much in evidence. ' '
Such is an outline of what was done at the Confer-
ence of 1908. . '
I feel sure all who have ever enjoyed the pleasures
and privileges of this Conference are agreed that Sil-
ver Bay ig an ideal place for inspiration in Christian
work. Here strong resolves are made and every one
desires to take the spirit of Silver Bay back to the
society which she represents. It makes one realize
