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. 4 SALMAGUNDI 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. .-...--1-1 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. .----1 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 spirit. 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 5 l 4 I anna.. .-...W , 4 -Arn... ' -- ...V .. .44-Q SALMAGUNDI 5 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 centuries. 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 6 SALMAGUNDI 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 started. 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, SALMAGUNDI 7 The Trip Up-Stream. ....-1-.T 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 SALMAGUNDI 3 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. C. '10, Representative lVlen. -qi-1-n 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.

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 cliaracteristic work. ALLINGHAM, '10, 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 rately. . 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 I0 SALMAGUND1 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' - 'D - turned. Trouble was 1n store for us and in the proces time i reignei with 1 turns 1 smith turn. that in was eig Mrs. spent quaint Erni his brc Hcatch one da it mor!

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.

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 Wards, A Uoffin and Atwater, the iforrner making IQOQ BASKET BALL TEAM fi.

The next game in order was played with Patten Academy, at Patten, January 18. Although the rweather was inclement our team started out with courage high. .Even if A. S. N.

The doors of the Normal school buildings will be wide open to the public and welcome will be the watchword. ,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- ing accounts of the high wages and salaries paid 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. Mrs. John I-I. Dunn whose husband is Clerk of Courts in Nome, Alaska, in writing to her sister Miss Sutherland, said the supply of teachers already eX- ceeds the demand. The teachers have docked there in large numbers only to find there are fewer schools than teachers and are obliged to return or seek eul- D1Oyment elsewhere. 3 1 SALMAGUNDI I9 W 4 ,Q .v I n 'Il , W I 7 . .Q 09 jf 9 ' P W K 41 on A ,s so ss Q 1 ff 4 Q. i Q 0 f ,. .ullllllh 187126 " Q 4 - J- ttvgkbhgl--I Stimgd HStalwart and stately was she, that maiden of twenty-three CPD summers.

Delicious refreshments were served and all came home witha feeling of gratification at the hospitality of the host and hostess.

It was just before nmfn f tl mountain when the party halted at the foot o 16 and the question of when dinner should be served - U' t mem- was decided in favor of the huugries bers of that party, A 'spring was found at the d 't was base of a large rock, a lire started, an 1 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 butter, salmon salad, ',sandWiches,' cocoa, olives, WhiPP9d'CI'6am pie, grapes, bananas and chocolates. Besides this, a Wonderful layer cake, frosted with green and white frosting, the class colors, contributed by Mrs. Merriman. Needless to say breakfast wasn't very much appreciatedthe next morning.

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 class realized quite a neat little sum of money. 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 .enjoyment received. The members of the. Senior class with Mr. and Mrs. Hall as chaperones, after consulting Mr. Merriman, Mr. Phair, Miss Kelley, Mr. Stanchiield, the livery man, the barometer and the weather-vane, started out on a sleigliride to the home of Miss Stanchfield of Easton. We were well on our Way when the rain came down in torrents, but nevertheless, it was a happy crowd that Iinally reached its destination. Music and games were followed by a-nice lunch consisting of oyster stew, cake and coffee.

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.

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. t ETTA E. ACKERSON, '09, 29 . -1 '. .

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.

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 1908. One 14-ings for an inspired pen to write the report and bring other hearts into touch with the glorious place and those whom God has kindled with the lire of his Holy Spirit. I will not dwell on the difficulty we experienced in securing our tickets and getting baggage 1-e-checked in spite of our foreliandedness in.. trying o have ar- rangements perfected but we warn the future dele- gates to begin as early and hope they will have better success. .

The weather had been so very warm we enngludefi to Cum, tinue our journey during the coolness. of the nieht and realized afterward that we were wise. D At dawn we were passing ,thlwugh the beautiful peerlield Valley. r The Hoosac Mountains walled us 1 W' . . n on both sides., The sun was beginning to tinge the clouds a delicate pink.i Occasional 0-ape in the C n y crops. mountains revealed level fields with tl-,rift A delightful stream followed the railroad track iirst on one side, then on the other, as We Cmsqedit from SALMAGUNDI 3 l 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: - , - 1903. ' 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."

The outline is still preserved showing the form of the old fort, nearly square,'tlanked on the West, south, ,uni a part of the east side by a ditch, and on the north side by the lake.

Shell and cannon balls have been taken from it at different times and in 1820 two small cannon were removed from the wreck.

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.

Miss Louise Brooks wi 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 alter we came away, at the right are Exhibit Hall, the store and postotlice and opposite the latter Mr. l'aine's museum, a spacious, attractive building hold- ing all obtainable relics of historical value to be found relating to Lake George and vicinity together with specimens ol' the 'flora and 'fauna of the Flililoll' Silver Hay owes its existence as a resort to Ml'- l'nine.

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.

WV 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.
