To the Uniuersiiy of Maryland: " May she live long and prosper ! " Prologue T i ITH a limited amount of time at our disposal for the M V preparation of this work, we have endeavored to gather into the volume much that may interest the friends and students of the University of Maryland. In the confidence characteristic of the student, the play of the University life is thrown open to the public, trusting that kind friends may not be too effusive in their criticisms upon this initiative annual. Fostered by the new spirit of advancement for the vener- able, but hale, institution, and for the closer union of her students, the knowledge, we believe, of a laudable desire upon the part of her sons to glorify and emblazon the deeds of their Alma Mater, and to furnish record of some of the amusing happenings connected with student life, may be a sufficient apology for inflicting upon an indulgent public these rare con- glomerate parts of a serio-comic drama. Many aspiring young litterateurs have come forward eager to find space for the results of their labors; and the editors can but hope that they have made judicious selections for presentation herein. After the appearance of a harlequin or two, we will con- clude with a grand dance and chorus, accompanied by the rattle and rustle of bones, molars, and briefs. And when the play is done, and we have no longer to stand before the great Univer- sity bar, let us bear with us thence this book as a souvenir of Alma Mater. THE EDITORS.

Gorgas, A.M., M.D., D.D.S. THE HISTORY of a University becomes not only interesting but instructive, when, after an existence of almost a century, its records become a chronic le of important events and its list of Alumni contains the names of men who have occupied some of the most prominent positions in their respective professions, and who have also been honored at home and abroad for scientific achieve- ments and valuable discoveries. The history of higher education in this country extends through four periods : the first beginning with the earliest settlement and extending to the Revolution, during which time the English system of that period prevailed. The second, following that great struggle for liberty, was distinguished by the organization of professional schools in medicine, law and theology. The third, beginning about the middle of this century, was characterized by the formation of scientific schools. The fourth, embracing the present period, has for its ideal, the system upon which the English Universities are now conducted, which includes continuous effort for the maintenance of the highest standard of professional learning, and the development of the highest talent. -It was during the second of these periods that the Univer- sitv of Maryland was organized, the idea of establishing such an institution originating with Dr. John Beale Davidge as early as the year 1796, and who was instrumental in interesting in such an enter- prise Dr. Nathaniel Potter. Failing, however, to influence others in the same direction, Dr. Davidge began, about the year 1799, a private course of medical lectures, which were continued annually thereafter, and formed the nucleus of the present School of Medicine of the University of Mary- land In 1807, Drs. Davidge and Potter having associated with them Drs. James Cocke and John Shaw, delivered a more extended course of medical instruction during the Winter months, which course was interrupted for a time by the prejudice of the community against dissection, a mob demolishing a small anatomical building which b 21 m 22 Dr. Davidge had erected near the southeast corner of Liberty and Saratoga streets, the site now occupied by the Rennert Hotel. This violent demonstration, however, had the effect of uniting the medical profession of the city in the effort to establish a Medical School, and on December i8, 1807, an act founding a Medical College in the city or precincts of Baltimore, for the instruction of students in the different branches of medicine, was passed by the Legislature of the State of Maryland. This original charter is still in force, and when it was granted Baltimore was the third city in size in the United States, having a population of 33,000, and its growth from 1790 to 18 10 far exceeded that of New York and Philadelphia. The Board of Regents at a meeting held December 28, 1807, pursuant to an Act of the General Assembly of Maryland, at the horse of Dr. Davidge, elected the first medical faculty as follows: George Brown, M.D., Professor of the Practice and Theory of Medicine ; John B. Davidge, M.D., and James Cocke, M.D., joint Professors of Anatomy, Physiology and Surgery ; John Shaw, M.D., Professor of Chemistry; Thomas E. Bond, M.D., Professor of Materia Medica, and William Donaldson, M.D., Professor of the Institutes of Medicine. Dr. Brown having resigned, Nathaniel Potter, M.D., was elected Professor of the Practice and Theory of Medicine. Dr. John B. Davidge was the first Dean. The lectures of the first session of the chartered institution were delivered at the houses of Professors Davidge, Cocke and Shaw, to seven students, there being no graduates at this session. Dr. Potter began his lectures in 180S. Dr. Donaldson declined to accept his appointment, but Dr. Brown continued to act as the President of the Board of Regents until the year 181 2. The second session was held in a building on the southwest corner of Fayette street and McClellan ' s Alley, and the class consisted of ten members. In 1809 the vacancies in the Chairs of Chemistry and Materia Medica were filled by the election of Elisha DeButts, M.D., and Samuel Baker, M.D., and the matriculates had increased to eighteen. During the session of 1824-5 the matriculates num- bered 320. In 1 8 10 the first public Commencement was held, and the degree of Doctor of Medicine was conferred upon five graduates. In 1812 Dr. William Gibson was elected Professor of Surgery, and Dr. Richard Wilmot Hall, Adjunct Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children. 23 A lot on the northeast corner of Lombard and (ireene streets was purchased from Colonel John Eager Howard, and the erection of the present University Building was begun in May, 1812, and the ensuing session was held in the partially completed structure. It was built in imitation of the Pantheon at Rome, and at the period of its comple- tion was the finest structure devoted to medical teaching in this country. Its Anatomical Theatre and Chemical Hall were described in the papers of that date as being as extensive and appropriate as those of any of the European schools. On the completion of this building the idea was first conceived of founding a University upon the Medical School, and on December 29, 18 12, the Legislature of Maryland passed an Act authorizing the College of Medicine of Mary- land to constitute, appoint and annex to itself the other three Colleges of Faculties, viz : ' ' The Faculty of Divinity, the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of the Arts and Sciences, and that the four Faculties or Colleges thus united, shall be, and they are hereby constituted an University, by the name and under the title of the University of Maryland. " The first Faculty of Divinity consisted of Rt. Rev. James Kemp, D.D. ; Rev. James Inglis, D.D. ; Rev. J. Daniel Kurtz; Rev. George Roberts, and the Rev. John Glendy, The Rev. Dr. William E. Wyatt was appointed in 1819, and the last survivor of this Faculty was the Rev. J. G. Hamner, D.D. In 1878 this Theo- logical Department ceased to exist. The Department of Law was organized in 1823, and its first Faculty consisted of Messrs. David Hoff " man, Robert Goodloe Harper, John Purviance, Robert Smith, Nicholas Price, and Nathaniel Williams. This Law Department is in active operation, and among its Alumni and present Faculty are to be found the names of many of the most prominent jurists in the State of Maryland. The first Faculty of Arts consisted of such eminent scholars as Charles W. Hanson, Rev. John Allen, John E. Hall, Rev. Archibald Walker, John D. Craig, Samuel Brown, and Henry Wilkins, M.D. With the death of Rev. Edwin A. Dalrymple, about the year 1865, the Department of Arts and .Sciences became extinct. The first Provost of the University was the Hon. Robert Smith, who had occupied the position of Secretary of State of the United States. Professor Richard Wilmot Hall was the first Secretary of the Board of Regents. The present Secretary of this Board is the 24 25 Hon. John P. Poe, Ex-Attorney General of Maryland. The position of Provost was tilled by that eminent scholar and jurist, the Hon. Severn Teackle Wallis, from 1S70 until his death in 1894. The second Provost of the University of Maryland, the Right Rev. James Kemp, D.D., conferred the honorary degree of LL.D. upon Lafayette in the University Building, October 9, 1824, during the last visit of that illustrious Frenchman to the United States. The diploma was enclosed in a handsome silver box, and was the first instance of the conferring of this degree. The present Provost, Bernard Carter, Esq., is one of the most eminent members of the Baltimore legal profession. In 1820 the Museum of t ' le Medical Department of the University, in Practice Hall, a large building adjoining the University Building, received through Dr. Granville Sharp Pattison, of Scotland, who occupied the Chair of Surgery in the University Medical Department, the anatomical collection of the celebrated Scotch Anatomist, Allen Burns, which in variety, excellence and number was superior to any other in this country. Dr. Pattison resigned in 1827, and was succeeded by the celebrated surgeon. Professor Nathan R. Smith, M.D., who occupied the Chair of Surgery from 1827 to 1869, and was Emeritus Professor of Surgery from that time until his death in 1877. The University Hospital, first known as the Baltimore Infirmary, was erected in 1823, on the southwest corner of Lombard and Greene streets, to which extensive additions were subsequently made. In 1896 it was determined to remove the main Hospital building and erect a much larger one on the same site. This new building is at the present time far advanced, and will be completed during the present year, when the University of Maryland will possess a hospital, which in accomodations, equipment and appearance, will compare favorably with any other in this country. In 1837 the first dental lectures in America were delivered in the University of Maryland by Dr. Horace H. Hayden, one of the earliest practitioners of Dentistry in Baltimore. Following the example of Harvard, Penns l ' ania, and other Universities, in 18S2, by an Act of the Legislature of Maryland, a new department was established under the title of " The University of Maryland Dental Department. " The first Faculty of Dentistry consisted of Ferdinand J. .S. Gorgas, A.M., M.D., D.D.S , Professor of the Principles of Dental .Science, Dental Surgery and Dental 27 Prosthesis; also Dean; James H. Harris, M.D., D.D.S., Professor of Operative and Clinical Dentistry ; William E. A. Aiken, M.D., LL.D., Professor of Chemistry; Samuel C. Chew, A.M., M.D., Professor of Materia Medica and Therapeutics ; F ' rancis T. Miles, A.M., M.D., Professor of Physiology; L. McLane Tiffiiny, A.M., M.D., Clinical Professor of Surgery ; J. Edwin Michael, A.M., M.D., Professor of Anatomy ; John C. Uhler, M.D., D.D.S., Demonstrator of Prosthetic Dentistry; Erank L. Harris, D.D.S., and Lewis M. Cowardin, D.D.S., Demonstrators of Operative Dentistry ; Randolph Winslow, A.M., M.D., Demonstrator of Anatomy. A new Dental Building, containing a large, well arranged, and fully equipped Infirmary and Laboratory ; alsoa Museum, together with extracting, impression, and reception rooms, was erected on Greene street, adjoining the University building, in 1882, to which several additions have since been macie. The success of the Dental Department has been remarkable, as during the first session which commenced October i, 1882, sixty-six students were matriculated, and at the first Commencement in the following March, the degree of D.D.S. was conferred upon the members of a graduating class numbering thirty-four. Every year since its organization the number of matriculates has increased, over two hundred being present at the recent sessions. In connection wiih their dental lectures, dental clinics and Infirmary and Laboratory practice, the dental students attend the same lectures as the medical students on Anatomy, Chemistry, Physiology, Materia Medica and Therapeutics ; they are also admitted to all the surgical clinics. The instruction in all branches of dental science is as thorough as it is possible to make it. The University of Maryland at the present time consists of three departments : Medicine, Law and Dentistry, all moving along the lines of progress and building the fame of the University far and wide. 28 General Athletic Association Officers.

T HE HISTORY of Athletics at the University of Maryland forms a most interesting chapter in the life of the University. Though there has indeed existed for many years a Department of Medicine, of Law, of Dentistry ; yet never before the organization of the Athletic Association, and the putting in the field of the Football Team of Ninety- five, had there been any movement embracing the students of all departments, or which in any way brought them into common fields. The Medicos and Dentals met only in the Lecture Room; and as for the Law School, some of the other students probably knew that the red building on the east corner was the Law School, and that was the nearest they ever came to association. The Athletic Association afforded the first opportunity to meet as a ' Varsity; and from its organization dates the birth of a new spirit, one which bids well to inspire and strengthen the hearty student body of old Maryland, to afford the wider facilities for the formation of friendships offered by the whole institution, and to give all the many 33 and great benefits which spring from concerted action along all the lines of University activity. The subject of attempting some athletics at the University had been discussed casually for some time, but no regular action had been taken. It had passed away with the formation of a class team or so, which played a game or two and disbanded. Finally, however, a half dozen students resolved to press the matter to an issue, and the advice of the Facuhies was sought. These students found here many warm supporters of the plan, and almost without an exception the members of the Faculty gave every help possible. The student who, above all others, was active in pushing matters to a successful issue was Mr. N. M. Gibbs, a graduate of the Medical Department of 1896. Of course there were others who gave their services unselfishly, but to him belongs preeminently the honor of being the father of athletics at the University of Maryland. The first team which represented the University of Maryland had Mr. Gibbs as captain, and Mr. H. R. Riley as manager, thus giving an official to the Medical and Law Departments. The record of that team was short but creditable. Organized in the middle of the season, games were scheduled with difficulty, and only three were played, two of which were won from City College, and one lost to St. John ' s at Annapolis, by the score of four to nothing. Baseball and hockey followed, and although these teams were not generally successful, they succeeded in putting these two games on a firm basis, and our strong representatives along both these lines this season are largly due to the effiarts of the promoters of last year ' s teams. With the opening of the season of 1896, the Athletic Association was put on a firmer basis by the election of an Executive Committee composed of members of the Faculty and students. A very hearty interest was aroused among a number of the members of the Faculty. The Football Team of Ninety-six was put in the field with the con- fidence that it would win laurels for itself. Its record was by no means discreditable. Although tied with two others for the honor of State 33 championship, it played and won more games than any other State team, and its supporters are sure that but for hard hick it would have demonstrated beyond a doubt that it was the best of the State college teams. It can be said that no team ever had a walk-over with it, but had to play its best ball to win. The captain of the ninety-six team was Eugene Denson, and the manager, Jas. T. Love. Both fulfilled their duties to the credit of themselves and their ' Varsity. The Hockey Team under Captain Whitehurst has already demo)i- strated that it belongs in the first class as compared with any in the city, and the prospects are that the Baseball Team will be one of the best college teams in the country. Milton Whitehurst is captain, and Dolph Decker, manager. So much for the short period of Maryland ' s work upon the athletic field. In two short years she has put herself in a position of supremacy among the Maryland institutions, as evidenced by her unreasonable exclusion from the lately forme d Inter-Collegiate League, although her fellow townsman, Johns Hopkins, finds entrance, grad- uate departments included. It puts the old ' Varsity, by general concession, in a class by herself in the State, and we must maintain it. Manager Decker of this year ' s Baseball Team and Manager Williams of the Football Team of ninety-seven, both realize this fact and are scheduling games with the best teams, and from every side comes the news that fine players will enter our departments next season. By the efforts of the Faculty it is pretty sure that the cus- tomary difficulties, a want of money and sufficient facilities for practice, will be done away with next season, and Maryland can then assume the place of the leading athletic institution of the section, with her athletics fiilly up to the hi h standard of her curriculum. Another branch of athletics which has been taken up this season, with fine prospects of success, is field and track athletics. Tlu ' student body has unanimously voted to take up that branch, and there have already been enough candidates to justify the belief that it will prove the best team of the kind in Maryland. The advantages of this line of work are very great The greatest are that it allows the active participation of a far larger number of men than any other branch, and ministers to all other branches l) - bringing men out, inspiring a love of athletics and keeping the students in condition. With the present interest taken in all ' Varsity movements, unques- tionably a Lacrosse Team will come soon, and already there has been some talk over the matter. 34 The future of athletics is with the student body of the University o{ Maryland, and this alone will insure its onward march. The Facul- ties of our institution are composed of liberal minded men who real- ize the great gain which athletics bring to individuals and the Uni- versity, and are furthering all branches with their hearty efforts. While the past of athletics at our institution has been creditable, the future is to be glorious, and let us all. Faculty, Alumni and Students seek to put it in its proper place as a developer of man in his triple character : a well rounded moral, mental and physical being. 85 86 ' s i, .Rn , u i - V ?a Ra! Re!

It was the first team that ever represented the L niversity on the diamond. It was hardly of the " crack " professional sort, but was good in its way. In the Fall of 1895 nine men from the ' Varsity got together and called themselves the University of Maryland Baseball Team; this was in the Fall — in September. Two games were played at that season of the year: one with the Baltimore Medical College and the other with a picked team from the Law School. This preliminary work and the spirit it engendered was, as the months rolled on toward the Spring of ' 96, formed into such a blaze of enthusiasm for the art of twirling, batting and catching, as would satisfy even the veriest Union Park " crank. " Prospects were brilliant indeed — base- ball stars loomed up on all sides. There was not the slightest diffi- culty in putting a team in the field ; but putting a winning team out was a horse of another color. Mr. Luntv Harris was made manager of this team. Many games were scheduled by him with the minor league teams of Virginia, upon percentages of gate receipts. For the accomplishment of this trip, twelve men, " tried and true, " were selected. Mr. Milton White- hurst, a former City College player, was elected to the captaincy of the team. Three games were played— at Norfolk, Richmond, and at Portsmouth. They " didn ' t do a t ' ing to us. " Gate receipts were decidedly low, likewise players ' pockets. Mr. Harris from Ports- mouth returned to Baltimore ; the remainder of the wandering band straggled into the University halls in twos and tlirees, and we believe the last contingent reached home in July. Of course all enjoyed the fun found in all such excursions, and while not entirely a success, financially or otherwise, the season of ' 96 is looked upon as a fair beginning for an expected prosperous baseball future. 44 45 o u a U n«5 CO W u o 3 Ji u 0) S c t4 o u 4G As They Looked at the Rink.

During that 1 year some enterprising Freshmen of the Dental Department organized a team and practiced at Lake Roland. Most prominent among the originators of the game in the Uni- versity were F. B. Weller and " Fresh " — now " Scrappy ' ' Baker. Bisnaw, who has since made such a brilliant record with the B. A. C. team, was with us that year and helped to make up the team. As this team did not have the opportunity of winning many laurels dur- ing the session of ' 94 and ' 95, we will pass on to the next year, when Hockey was taken up by all departments of the University, and the ' Varsity team cut no little figure in the games of that Winter. The next impetus given the game was in the Fall of ' 95, when the Athletic Association decided to include Hockey among the ' Varsity sports — and a committee was appointed, composed of H. A. Cotton, Geo. Hicks, and Dr. Abercrombie, to look after its interest. It was very doubtful at first if a team could be picked, as only a few men skated well enough to play the game, and only a few of these few were interested enough to try for the team, but after repeated meetings enough enthusiasts were found. " Micky " Whitehurst was elected manager, and Henry Kennard, captain. These two went to work, and after a few weeks ' practice five men showed up well enough, but still two positions were vacant. These were finally filled by Tom Owings and " Pat " Whitehurst, brother of the manager. Nothing daunted, the boys challenged the Baltimore Athletic Club team, who were then the recognized champions of the United States, and were defeated by them to the tune of 13 to o. How that game still lingers in our minds, and try as we can we cannot get away from it. We next tried to get a game with Hopkins, but failed, and decided to play the " Champs " again. There was some improve- ment over the first game, as is shown in the score, B. A. C. 5, U. of M. I. This was some encouragement — and we decided to try for laurels in other fields. Accordingly, a game was played with the Columbia Athletic Club team in Washington, which resulted in the score of 2 to o in our favor. The team and a crowd of rooters nearlv went wild 48 with joy, and the manager had a fit for three days. The Hne up of the ' 95 team was as follows : — M. Whitehurst, H. Kennard, T. Owings and E. A. Charbonnel, forwards ; F. B. Weller, cover point ; H. A. Cotton, point, and H. Whitehurst, goal. Substitutes: " Scrappy " Baker, Geo. Hicks, " Samie " Deal. When the season of ' 96 and ' 97 opened every effort was made by the Hockey enthusiasts to secure the privilege of practicing at the Rink; and through the efforts of the newly elected manager and captain, the U. of M. was admitted to the Senior League, which was composed of the Maryland Athletic Club, Baltimore Hockey Club, Johns Hopkins University, and University of Maryland. The team of ' 96 and ' 97 was a vast improvement over that of ' 95 and ' 96. This year there was much interest taken, and fifteen candidates ' ' showed up ' ' for practice. We are deeply indebted to the ' ' Scrubs ' ' for our great improvement over last year ' s playing. The " Scrubs, " poor old " Scrubs! " Do they ever get any credit? And if it was not for the " Scrubs " what would the ' Varsity teams be? It ' s the " Scrubs " that make the strong ' Varsity. And the rooters ! — We must not leave them out. When we hear their yells we play as though the " old boy " was in us, and the members of the team often say that the rooters have helped us win many a game. At the present writing only one game has been played, and that with the Maryland Athletic Club. We defeated them in football and tried our best to do the same in Hockey, but were disappointed. They won by 2 to o, though one goal was shot by a foul. This was a great surprise to M. A. C, for they thought they had run up against an " easy thing, " but we, with two new players on the team, showed them that we could " keep flies off them at any rate. " Since the above was written, the most glorious event in the his- tory of Hockey at our institution, and one of the best in our short athletic history, was our victory over Hopkins on Friday, February 5. The universal concession was that the score of three to one did not really show the difference between the teams. In individual and team work there was no comparison between them, and e.xcept for an occasional dash by our opponents the puck was in their territory the whole time. The press of the city gave credit to the ' Varsity for not only having the better team, but for out-classing our rivals in 49 the showing of our student body. It began to look at the beginning of the season as if the experienced men of Hopkins would be too much for our team. Yet determination and spirit won the day, and we have beaten Hopkins at their own game. 50 mm»iHuni tmii(e 51 To Xi Psi Phi, 97. Around the hall the solevin march is fnade, A?id every move is by the goat surveyed, He stamps the floor, and with deep-toned bleat Makes the Duckling tremble to his feet. But suspense is short, a pause, a jar. That shakes the Chapter Hall ; he ' s set his seal. And triwnph the snapping eyes of that goat reveal. The Duck is quickly gathered up and placed astride Of that wicked goat, and then begins a ride ; But brootnstick flrmly held, the beast espies.

Although but few members were enrolled the first year, the organi- zation has steadily grown and promises to be in the future one of the strongest Chapters in the Fraternity. This Chapter claims the distinction of being the first Greek letter Fraternity in the University, and is exclusively dental. The Xi Psi Phi dates back for many years, the mother Chapter being located at Ann Arbor, University of Michigan. There have been formed Chapters in every dental college of prominence in this country, so that the combined membership is reaching far into the thousands. The object of this organization is to promote a fellow-feeling among dental students while at college and to render such assistance as is possible during the years of college work — this feeling to be fostered and carried into after- professional life, when great benefits must of necessity grow from it to members individually ' and to the profession at large. Unlike most bodies of its kind, there exists nothing but the best of feeling for students who, for reasons of their own, do not think it advisable to become members. It is neit her sectar- ian nor political. It is to be hoped that in the near future W the Theta Chapter will follow 55 the lead of its more fortunate sisters and erect a monument to the beloved University by procuring a chapter house in this city. The members of the Theta Chapter extend their hearty congratulations to the young University Chapter which has just sprung into existence in our midst, assuring it of our best wishes for its success and trust- ing that a feeling of good-will may always exist between the new and old. We say to it : Success, prosperity and large membership be your portion, and in the years to come a union of hearts and hands in the old and honored University. 5(i The Mayor ' s Mistake.

It seems strange that during- the long and brilliant history of the College, no " frats " were organized, as a college is hardly a college that does not have some clubs or fraternities. Then the Phi Sigma Kappa enjoys the distinction of being the first general fraternity in the University, and has already become very popular, and is on a good solid basis, with some of the best men in the College in its ranks. To the efforts of Mr. J. S. Tompkins, ' 99, is due the honor of organizing Eta Chapter of ihe Phi Sigma Kappa. He was from the Uni ersity of West Virginia Chapter, and he worked hard when he came here this year to get the students interested in it, and succeeded in getting enough to petition a charter from the Grand Chapter. The charter was granted, and on January 12, Brother J. A. Cutter came from New York and initiated Eta Chapter into the Phi Sigma Kappa. The induction was held at the Eutaw House, and was followed by a sumptuous banquet, served in honor of Brother Cutter by the Eta Chapter. The Chapter has been incorporated, and is now on a sound financial basis. At present there is no chapter house, but by next session we expect to be comfortably housed, and suitable rooms have been engaged for this term. 59 Y. M. C. A. Officers. R. H.

THIS ASSOCIATION was organized in December, 1894, with about thirty charter members. Mr. Frank Keating of Mary- land, who is at present resident physician of one of the hospitals in Baltimore, was elected president, and with the other officers served until March, 1895, at which time the annual elections of officers took place, and Mr. James Webster of Scotland was chosen as Mr. Keating ' s successor. During the Winter and Spring of 1895, the Association added many new members to its roll, held meeting ' s of a devotional character every Sunday afternoon, and monthly meetings of a business nature, in the reading room of the College, which the Faculty cheerfully granted to its use. At opening of school term in Autumn of 1895, the Association secured a convenient and moderately sized room, to the rent of which the Faculty contributed liberally. The room was open at all hours of the day and students would often resort thither to enjoy a quiet game of chess, checkers or other innocent games, read daily press or some religious paper or magazine, and engage in social conversation. This free intercourse tended to social and moral cultivation which was a decided step in advance of what had hitherto existed. The devotional and business meeting. ' s were regularly held throughout the school season. Some of the members joined the Student Volunteer movement during the year, and Mr. Webster is at present doing mission work in China. In March, 1896, Mr. Frank Stoney of Brooklyn, was chosen president of the Association for the school term of ' 96-7. Mr. Stoney was prevented from returning to Baltimore at the beginning of the present term, and at first business meeting of the Association Mr. R. H. McGinnis of North Carolina was selected as his successor. The meetings this year have been regularly held in the reading room of the University on Sunday alternoons at 3 o ' clock, with favorable attendance. The Association feels the need of permanently fitted-up apartments, where the men can congregate after or between lectures and have social intercourse, thereby bringing them into closer fellowship and promoting college spirit. 61 University Senate — Debating Society Law School.

By reviewing the history of this body, we learn that it has not always been an American legislative body called the Senate, that but a few years ago, when the seats of the present incumbents were filled by other noble representatives of the Stars and Stripes, this body passed under the appellation of a " House of Commons, " and by studying the journal we ascertain that one of the most violent debates which has ever been heard within the halls of this body, occurred when a bill was introduced to change the name from a " House ot Commons " to an American name, " The Senate. " The Maryland University Senate is a thorough and competently organized legislative body. Her officers, without the slightest tinge of exaggeration, can aptly and truly be compared with the greatest men that adorn the p.iges of mediaeval or modern history, never shirking from their duty, always ready to perform whatever work may be incumbent upon them ; indeed some of them like work so, that they would not be violent with it for all the world. If such men as John Sherman, John G. Carlisle, David B. Hill, and Maryland ' s proud son, Arthur P. Gorman, could but see the competency and efficiency of the officers of Maryland University Senate, from the dignified president to the stately sergeant-at-arms, they would justly and truly exclaim, " Our day is past ! " The powers of this body to grapple with the various questions which confront them, and their wonderful solution of technical parlia- mentary points will be adhered to as precedents by following legis- lative bodies, when the cherished rulings of Stevenson, Crisp and Reed will be totally obliterated from the mind of the shrewd parlia- mentarian. There are introduced into this body, for its final consideration, bills of various purport, ranging from the most sublime to the most ridiculous. We find by reviewing the record, that bills have been introduced and passed ranging from the most rigid and string- ent local option and total prohibition bills to bills favoring absolute free whiskey, unhindered and unimpeded by any Ucense tax. Bills of such importance as the free and unlimited coinage of gold and silver, recognition of Cuban belligerency, to a bill of vital importance to one of our senators, entitled " An Act to divorce F. M. C. Choate from his wife Susan. " These bi lls are met with multitudinous argu- ments, pro and con, recognizing, of course, to a slight extent, senatorial courtesy, but not abusing it as it has so often been in the great law-making body of our country, the Congress of the United States. Our senators hold always aloft those high principles of justice and honor to their constituents, and thus a " Lexow Com- mittee " is unnecessary to investigate the crooked work of this body. Vast measures are resorted to by the members of this body to pass or kill a measure, as may best suit their ideas. Some of them resort to a flood of oratory and eloquence that would make Cicero or Daniel Webster hide his face in shame. Others in flowery terms appeal to the patriotism, prejudice or sympathy of its members, until the whole body is exuberant, angry or sad. There is still another class whose strong forte seems to be parliamentary law ; these are aching for an opportunity at any time to make a motion to adjourn, to lie on the table, to indefinitely postpone, to recommit, previous question, or any motion which will best subserve their interest. Some very animated discussions have taken place in this body which have been profitable to us all. Differences of opinion ha e been violently argued within her walls, but they have all been nicely healed. As we depart, after having served our terms, and having refused a second nomination for re-election, may our constituents truly exclaim, concerning us, " You have fought a good fight, you have finished your course, and henceforth there is laid up for you a crown of glory.

Thoughts of an angry father flashed through Katie ' s mind, while visions of a large-sized shoe caused Raymond to experience great mental anguish. The lovers looked at each other for hope and consolation, but the face of each saw reflected in the other only its own terror. While the lovers thus stood in fear and trembling, a female voice was heard calling over the banisters : " Katie ! " " Aunt Belinda, " whispered the girl, more terrified than ever. Raymond, how- ever, appeared to be somewhat relieved to find that it was not the young lady ' s father. " Katie ! " " Well, Auntie? ' ' quakingly replied the girl. " Are you alone ! " Katie hesitated. " Say yes, " whispered Raymond. " Yes, Aunt Belinda. " They heard her descending the stairs. What should they do ? " Hurry, Raymond! Get behind the portieres. " He was safely hidden behind the curtains that hung in front of the folding doors leading into the next room. The clever girl picked up a book and appeared to be absorbed in its contents when her aunt entered the room. " Why haven ' t you retired, Katie? ' ' The girl ' s face was crimson. She dared not look up. " I wanted to finish this book, Auntie dear. " " Well, that ' s a queer way to read, " said her aunt. Then Katie for the first time realized that the volume was upside down. Her already crimson face turned to a deeper hue. The poor 70 girl, unaccustomed to deceive, burst into tears and buried her face in her handkerchief. Aunt Behnda was a sympathetic old soul. She approached her niece and tenderly pressed her throbbing temples. " Had you a quarrel with that effeminate little fool, dear? I never did consider him good enough for you. " " But he is, Auntie, " sobbed Katie. " Well, dry your tears, darling. It will be all right by to- morrow. Come, now, help me fit my dress. " For the first time since her aunt had entered the room, Katie lifted up her head and looked at her. Aunt Belinda was evidently not aware that she was in proximity to a person of the male sex. She was dressed — or rather undressed — as ladies ar e when they are being fitted for a dress. Two painfully thin arms and quite a start- ling amount of neck were visible. A sleeveless basque from whose seams hung threads of basting cotton showing that the fitting process had to be gone through before the garment would be permanently sewed, was the only part of ordinary street apparel in her costume. The skimp skirts were being thrown about in a reckless manner, exhibiting quite an expanse of baggy stocking while the lady made vain attempts to gather in the superfluous material in the back of the basque. Katie gazed upon her aunt in amazement and horror. What a spectacle the poor old soul did present. The girl knew that she would never be forgiven if her aunt should discover that Raymond had seen her in such a condition. The money would be left to some charitable institution. Visions of two small rooms, a gas stove, and a mantelpiece for a table rose before her. Such would be the wedded bliss of the briefless barrister and herself. No, she could not tell her aunt, and surely Raymond would not look at her aunt in such a condition. Alas ! Raymond ' s eyes were glued to the space between the curtains. " Katie! " said Aunt Belinda, " help me, please. " The girl obeyed, and as well as her trembling hands would permit, pinned up the parts which needed taking in to make the basque fit. " You have pinned that the wrong way, " said Aunt Belinda suddenly. " Well, if you can ' t do it, I ' ll have to attend to it myself Take off your dress and let me see how it looks on you. " 71 " Oh, Auntie ! not here, please ! Somebody might see me. " " Why, girl, you must be going crazy, " replied Aunt Belinda, casting a searching look upon the crimson-faced girl. " Don ' t you see that the blinds are tightly drawn. You didn ' t think of anyone seeing me. No, all your thoughts are centered upon yourself " Katie could hesitate no longer. She unbuttoned her dress and was ready to slip it off. ' ' Raymond won ' t look, " she said to herself. In fear and trepidation she glanced toward the portieres — but only for an instant. His eyes were close to the aperture. " Hurry, Katie! " She gritted her teeth and quickly took off the dress. After ten minutes of agony and suspense the ordeal was apparently over. " I would like to see how the skirt hangs, " said Aunt Belinda. " Suppose you slip off your petticoat. " " No! no! no! " cried the girl " Not now, Auntie! Any other time. ' ' Katie threw herself on the floor and burst into tears. " I think that I ' ll have to speak to your father, Katie. There is evidently something wrong with you. I must say, however, that I think you are exceedingly obliging. " Thereupon the worthy lady gathered up her materials and with stately steps ascended the stairs. How Katie succeeded in dressing herself the poor girl never knew. She did, however remember that she turned down the light, opened the front door, and while her crimson face was buried in her wet handkerchief there was a sound of hurrying footsteps and a dark form dashed out into the street. Raymond had seen and gone. 72 Baltimore, January lo, 1897.

The contestants were of bantam weight and wholly unused to the sport. On one side was an exhibition of strength and awkwardness, while on the other a total inability to offer resistance. We shall not enter into detail as to the immediate cause of the battle. Suffice it to say, a little misunderstanding brought about the entire affair. Perhaps it would be interesting to give right here a description of the fight by rounds. We shall not mention names, for certain reasons, but designate the contestants as No. i and No. 2. Only two rounds were fought. Round r. — No. i approached No. 2 and demanded an apology. Upon being refused. No. i led with his left, following immediately with his right, landing both squarely in the face, causing a complete knock-down. No. 2 was quickly carried to his corner and given a shower bath under the hydrant. According to Marquis of Queens- bury rules, this ended round one. Round 2. — Some time elapsed before the second round was fought. This time No. 2 was on the aggressive and made the attack, but was soon beaten into submission. No. i turned him a flip-flop, landing him sprawling on his back, and, to bring matters to a close, deliberately sat upon No. 2 and beat a roll-call on his face. The expression, " O Lord ! Take him away ! " was not long following. We shall not attempt any description of No. 2 ' s face an hour afterward. It was simply beaten into an almost shapeless mass, resembling a square in a " crazy " quilt. Just at this point the law took a hand, and our mutual friend No. I spent several hours at Pine Street Station gazing through small openings. On the following afternoon he was given a hearing, and the justice ' s court-room resembled a lecture-hall at the University, fully one hundred and fifty students having assembled to listen to a detailed account and hear the verdict. When the evidence had all been taken and summed up, his Honor arose, and in his deepest tones said, " No. i is fined free dollars mil de costs. ' " 76 hri- j (y He Had Played Cards Before. THE LECTURE was on the brain. As the learned lecturer, armed with a split bamboo trout rod, pointed out Gay street and other points of interest on the brain, the students followed him with bated breath — all but one — he dreamed peacefully, con- tentedly — dreamed of his far-off native land, where Chili saltpetre keeps the temperature down, and the Venezuelan Boundary disputes its right to do so. Awakened suddenly by a remark, he leaned over with a lurch to the student next to him and anxiously asked, " Where are the penuckles of the cerebellum? " — Fact. 78 A Correspondent Mister Editeur : Me sorry very much me can ' t come on you house for see you. You see me ain ' t git tarn.

CTY CERTAIN magnanimous individual informs us, that being ever Jf-V solicitous for the welfare of the students of the Law School, and knowing the dire distress which the examinations on Plead- ing causes to the Intermediates, he has consulted a world-renowned medium, and thanks to the all-embracing knowledge of that indi- vidual he is authoritatively enabled to give to the world, Mr. Poe ' s questions on Pleading, for the examination to be given in January, 1898.

If Peter Plaintiff practices pleading pleas prettily, please promptly prepare the pleas Peter Plaintiff, pleading, prettily pleads. 2 . 2 — What is the difference between a femme sole and a boot heel ?

In a case of Mormon conver- sion, is trover the proper remedy? 15. 5 — If a lunatic should enter a jeweler ' s and dance the Buzzard on a glass show- case, would this be ground for an action on the case ? If not, why not ? 75g. 6 — Plaintiff, being attacked by the defendant ' s dog, lost the seat of his pants, not to speak of meat; he brought trespass, wherefore he broke the plaintiff ' s close. Was this the proper remedy, or arnica ? Give reasons. 4ioo- 7 — A tramp broke into plaintiff ' s store and stole a case of sardines and a ham bone. Plaintiff brought case and trespass de bone-is-aspartato. Was this felicitous vel non ? 16. 8 — Peter Plaintiff went in swimming and left his clothes on the beach. Daniel Defendant came along and eloped with the suit. Peter Plaintiff not suited by this arrangement, while in hot pursuit of Daniel was arrested for indecent exposure. Was this a case of non-suit? Why? And what became of Daniel ? i4l . 9 — Daniel Defendant tortiously converted and devoured a watermelon belong- ing I0 Peter Plaintiff, who thereupon procured a stcmach pump and sued oi.t a writ of replevin. Daniel pleaded a lawful distress, and issue was joined. The evidence showed that the watermelon was green and cramped Daniel Defendant, constituting the alleged lawful distress. Peter claimed a variance. Could he recover, and if so, could Daniel recover also, and if not, how long before he would die? 27 . 82 Young Man, Go to the ' ' Maryland ' .

H4 An Incident THE peculiar incident I am about to relate occurred on one of those comfortable Autumnal evenings when a bracing wind makes humanity move at a more decided and enlivened pace, and especially when the younger members of the fair sex are made happy by the long looked for opportunity of displaying last Fall ' s handsome feather boa and tasty headgear made up to this year ' s style. Well, on this paaticular eve our friend F — rl — y, fully equipped with his mashiny armor, which, by the way, consists of a loud over- coat, louder trousers, the loudest of gloves, and a most boisterous white Alpine hat. He stood on the brownstone steps of his masseter developing establishment, undecided as to his mode of attack on the next unsuspecting stray female, when lo ! a vision staggers, aye, almost fells him on the spot. Just around the corner, going up Myrtle avenue, is the most beautiful of maidens. As seen from behind, she h s the form of a Venus, and such a cute walk. Her clothes are not bad, either ; she has on a love of a large hat with lots of plumes and ribbons; a handsome black feather boa encircles her swan-like neck, and a neat jacket to match the bottle (our favorite) green suit completes the outfit. F — -rl — y does not even cast a prayer heavenward for success, biit, depending entirely on his looks and ability (which are passable), proceeds to become engaged to her within a week. But how to become acquainted? Ah ! a thought ! The old reliable is the sur- est and decidedly the safest way. Let me state before going farther, that on the eve mentioned, the moon and stars had forgotten to appear, therefore, but for the few gas jets and fewer electric lights, the city was in total darkness. Having decided upon a modtis ope? ' - andi, he first produces a lady ' s dainty handkerchief from his pocket (kept there for this purpose) and with graceful step and gesture begins thus : " Hem ! I weally beg youa paadon, Miss, but did you not drop " — ! !!!!!! What do I see and hear? F — rl — y stands as if turned into a marble statue, posing with extended hand holds handkerchief and a deep contralto voice is saying, " G ' wayfwam hea you white trash, go to you ' own color. " 85 No, kind reader, F-rl-y was not carried to the hospital in the ambulance, but I have been told he has almost given up mashing in Baltimore, but on very rare occasions when he does attempt it a messenger boy is always sent in advance to find out the color of the victim. 80 Poe vs. University of Maryland Law SchooL ' -= John Peter Plaintiff Poe, vs. Daniel Defendant, Samuel Student, Peter Penman, Billy Bookworm, K Solomon Slanderer, et al.

Rejoixder : They ' re as true as golden coin, So forthwith we issue join. With lames Judge and Benjamin Bench presiding, twelve Jere- miah Jurymen are sworn in by Charles Clerk, who proceeds to call witnesses as follows : — ' ' Come nocu and tell the truth, All ye ivitnesses forsooth; Let the first to show his fitness. Be the one named William Witness. ' ' William Witness being duly sworn in testifies : " ■On January third, I, William Witness, heard Defcnda)its speak each word. Of the Plaintiff ' s declaration.

" The onus probandi being on the Defendant to prove justification (Poe ' s Pleading, § 177), Charles Clerk now calls Lawrence Liar to testify for defense. He is duly sworn in, and says : " J r.

If thusly you ' ll charge the juree. ' ' After some discussion, counsel decided to dismiss jury and leave the decision to the Court; whereupon, after a half hour ' s recess, ] )enjamin Bench hands down the opinion of the Court, to wit :— This Court decides ' without ado, ■ 0 course, the ' words alleged are true; They also add, they camiot rank it Loss to miss an Irish banquet.

' Court ' s adjourned. ' 89 - 90 History of CtJrrent Events By the Recording Angel. eCTOBER I. — This day began the session of ' 96- ' 97 for the Medical and Dental Departments. The Senior, Junior, Sophomore and Freshman are all present. Their actions are distinctive of their separate classes. The Senior strolls about with a most superior air, patronizing all the lower classmen, and if he is a Houseman, bosses the whole crowd with the exception of Mr. Runge. The Junior is tagging on behind trying to imitate his older brother, but failing most miserably in the attempt. The Soph., rigged out in a maroon and black sweater, wants you to distinctly understand that he is an athlete. He is a very superior personage, and the Freshman stands drinking in his words as if he were the oracle of Delphi. The Freshman, otherwise called a " stiff, " is as verdant as the green fields of his home, and numbers of them are afflicted with superfluous hayseed. He is always anxious to visit the dissecting room and the amphitheatre, but his first visit is generally his last for some time, as he is usually troubled with a stomach com- plaint and his dreams are not of a pleasant nature that night. October 5. — The Law School assembled. Embryo lawyers from all parts of the country were gathered together to discuss and decide the weighty affairs of the nation and to calculate how to live on five cents a day. Of course they know more law than Blackstone ever dreamed of, but unfortunately they will have to get a diploma before they can inflict their learning upon a long-sufTering public. • October id.— The Football Team defeats the redoubtable St. John ' s. What a memorable occasion it was ! A large number of enthusiastic youths, headed by " Weary Jimmie " and " Irish, " escort the " boys " to Annapolis. Did we own that town ? Well, I should smile ! The old place woke up for once in fifty years. The game was well fought, but, oh, how close ! When the end came our little captain took a free ride on the shoulders of his delighted followers. When the game began the little soldier boys of St. John ' s raised their feeble voices in praise of the orange and black, but, sad to relate, their wind gave out before the end. When we got back 91 the old main building looked down upon a celebration such as it had never seen before. A shouting, howling mob of students, wild with delight. Cheer after cheer went up for the team and the glory of " Old Maryland. " October 15. — The University got together in a body and organized a General Athletic Association. This was a great move toward University feeling, and I am thankful to say the men have taken up the work in earnest. Three cheers for the ' Varsity a ' d the Class of ' 97 ! Octobp:r 28. — The Dental Class elected officers. Of course the tooth carpenters did a lot of jawing, but that was in their line. Everybody was extraordinarily peaceful, for there is no record of more than ten fights at the meeting. As the injuries were chiefly about the mouth, the Faculty are seriously considering the advisabilit} ' of having several elections during the year to furnish clinical material. October 24. — Another football game. Again our team was victorious. But the game was so one-sided that there was little to interest an on-looker. The Rock Hill boys were plucky, but they couldn ' t stop " Pink. " October 31. — The Football Team went to Norfolk. A great game was fought, but our boys were not accustomed to being licked, so the Norfolk team had to bite the dust. November 2. — This day we met our first defeat on the gridiron. The team played good ball, but, sad to relate, the Hamptons played better. November 7. — We were as lambs led to the slaughter, and though " Jimmie " kicked and Denson kicked and everybody else kicked, it wasn ' t any use, for Mt. St. Mary ' s was bound to beat us by fair means or foul. With a tough team and numerous auxiliaries armed with various weapons they beat us to the tune of 8-0. NoviCMBER II. — A convention was held by the Medical Class, to nominate class officers. The orators of the occasion rivaled William lennings Bryan, and what a pity some were not lawyers. November 14. — Another defeat. But this time by a team of gentlemen. Gettysburg College will always be remembered for their polite and gentlemanly treatment of our boys. 93 November i6.— Medical Class election. A great fight between the inside and outside. It was a close struggle, but the outside men won by the closest of margins. What weeping and gnashing of teeth was heard as the Housemen slowly wended their way homeward. Of course there was a contested election, but everything ended peace- fully and they lived happily ever afterward. November 21. — Where was the team? There was very little of it left, but M. A. C. couldn ' t score on our crippled eleven with all their trying. November 26.— The last game of the season. Another crowd in Annapolis, but, sad to relate, their spirits were not as light as before, and there wasn ' t as much yelling— for the much despised St. Johns had made our redoubtable champions bite the dust. Not even Irish ' s antics or the cries of " Are you hungry ? " from our sandwich man could rouse them from their melancholy. Slowly they wended their way homeward a sadder, but a wiser crowd. December 14.— The Football blow-out. Did they drink beer? No, not a bit ! A small and select crowd assembled at the invitation of a prominent member to end the season in a good old way. Well they did it, and most wonderful to relate, returned to tell the tale. December ii.— The Law School Banquet. We have a very vague and hazy account of these festivities. Our reporter unfortun- ately, when the banquet was half over, dropped his note-book, and when he tried to find it again, fell under the table and there remained. There were many speeches made — under the table, beside the table and upon the table. Several gentlemen thought the weather too bad for walking, so remained at the hotel all night. One in particular thought that his clothes and a high silk hat were the best things to sleep in. December 22. — University closed for the holidays. How gloomy the day was, and just think how hard the poor Houseman had to work when his friends were enjoying themselves. December 24.— The Christmas Eve Carnival on Lexington street. Of course the ' Varsity was out in full force; and as they looked innocent, several bodies of rash young men attempted to charge their ranks, but — One body in particular, going under the name of the Clifton Athletic Club, thought they owned the street, but unfortu- 93 g nate ' y for them they attempted to run us ofif. This aroused our ire, and at the command of our leader we rushed down upon their ranks. Of course they were defeated, and after they were put to ignominous rout we found ourselves in possession of one of their standards. The innocent young men having received reinforcements returned to the fray. In this encounter our dear little " Cockroach " engaged in an hand to hand scrimmage with one of their champions. This trial of arms was declared a foul by the police, so it had to be fought to a finish at the Western Police Station, with the justice for the referee. January 4. — Lectures begin again. The men return to work. Each with fond recollections of some misguided female that deplores his absence from home. Finale. — As our book must now go to press I will end my little tale. So I wish you all a long life full of happiness, fees and general cussedness, and when John passes around his box deposit your nickel. So ends ye chronicle. Ye Recording Angel.

On a bright December evening, zv ieii " Big Sam " his ni)itli had tolled, II ith a ring so clear and perfect, with a melody that rolled, Yoiiiig men, happy, gay a id cheerful, gathered in " The Altamunt " ; Others, older, gray and bald head, though zaith spirits tantanioiint : Students of the Law Department of the M-d. U-ni-v., Hoping some time to be lawyers, zvere these bipeds gay and free. In the hallway and the parlors stood and sat and sauntered they. Cracking jokes and tellitig stories, acting each his own Diind ' s zuay ; Listening to the tales zvith pleasure, and the words of wisdom, too. From the mouths and brains proceeding of the men zve deem so true : True men in the legal army, with their knowledge tenable — Joh7i P. Foe upon the one side, other, Richard I ' enable. Soon the banquet hall was entered, zvith a rush that quite revealed Appetites within their stomachs, appetites quite unconcealed ; llilh their toastmaster commanding — the indomitable one. Who knows evidence and pleading as the earth the gorgeous sun — They zvere soon arou7id the table, ready to participate In the eatables substantial, in the food more delicate. Hours tzvo they sat iiidulging , and, of course, as boys will do, Laughed and talked, and whooped and halloed, zvhile the moments quickly flezv ; . Thinking not upon their past times, blended with their joys and griej ' s, Thi)iking not upon the morrozv, bringing trouble or relief: For their thoughts zvere on the present, and the pleasures that it gave ; Heedless, some, of hozv they acted, though the acts zvere of a knave. Next in order per the programme, our toastmaster arose To announce the evening speakers, which he did unto the close. First in order zvas " 1 he Student, ' ' to be roughly tumbled ' bout By Old Crusoe, ] pref.ved, zvith Crusoe from his name scratched out. But, alas ! for ' ' his appearance had n t been entered by the Clerk, Thou,gh, of course, he ne ' er intended his engagement there to shirk. !)8 Then arose a young man stalwart (?), whom no one denies is Brio:ht — With a voice of Bryan firmness (?), with a form by no rcays slight (?), Bringing forth in lively spirits, in his own peculiar way ( Which, I dare say, no one envies — no one envied since that day). All perfections and all defects of " The Seriate, ' ' ' ' — 7ioble band— The Debating Club for students, foremost standirig in the land. Up then Tripped a sturdy student, but he did 7iot seek the floor, Neither did he have occasion during the time to seek the door. Launched he forth at once upon us, with his accents bold and strong : ' Legal Briefs arid Brevities, " not too brief and not too long ; Telling us about the Bible arid the Patriarchs of old ; Eve and Adam in the Garden, shepherds by the old sheep fold. Then " The funior, " when he enters and the thoughts that round him loom As he steps into the lecture, sees the Prof, attd scans the room. Visibly appeared before us in a mass zvithout alloy {For zee cal nly retrospecled ), portrayed by a Pat Malay. But this futiior viewed the Senior from a standpoint we dislike, For the theory of old Dariuin zvas reversed by this " O ' Mike. " From among the number present then a likely Chap began — IVhom at once, as tve beheld him, spread himself into a man, — Telling us about the " Lazcyer. " Was it by himself as seen ? Was it that his ozvn opinion was reflected on a screen ? Or perhaps it zvas the Lazvyer as viezved by the Deity, — No ; oh, 7io ; it was " The Lazcyer as seen by the Laity. " Titles oj nobility Uncle Sam cannot confer. For the Constitution plainly does U. S.from this deter. Still, amongst our midst assembled zvas a tnan of noble type : Sur Ratt is a Setiior student, zvith experience full ripe. And " The Faculty " he handled ' til some boys grew sleepy, quite. Sleepy from the hour ' s lateness, sleepy from the zuaning night. When these speeches zvere concluded, to the great delight of all ; When the Profs some jokes related, which at once " wound up the ball, " From the hotel they proceeded, some to get rest for the mind. Others, tired and so sleepy, for themselves a ' rest to find. They arose refreshed and happy zchen had passed the early morn. All except the ' ' tired " and " sleepy, " homeward plodding , saddened, forlorn. 99 fl, Car K Tv r FRIENDS OF YOURS ? lOO To the Nurses of the University Hospital I. Oh ! who could be averse to the calling of a nurse, When the qtdte-too-lovely uniforin is noted ? Oh, the 7ieatly -fitting goivn, azure-striped up and doivn, With an ivory-polished collar broadly throated ; Oh, the apron snoivy luhite, cross-belted left and right, And the chatelaine rvith scissors, ivatch and pins ; But the uttermost of thrills is the dainty cap zuith frills, And its tiny ribbons mazy outs and ins ! II. Oh, it ' s very far you ' d seek for a figure qtiite so chic ; But it ' s grievously mistaken you zvould be. If you thought this charming maid posed only for parade — For her tireless cvork ivould shame a busy bee. For half a score of hours she ' s exerting all her powers To heal the sick with skill and patience rare. And the objects of her cares grateful thank her in their prayers. And zvill watch for her i i Heaven when they ' re there. III. Nor is her labor done at the setting of the sun {Or its rising, if her duties be at Jiight) : As if she ivere at college, she must add unto her knowledge By the conning of hard lessons to recite ; And ivith herfelloiu lasses, at very freqiient classes, The net result is tested at the board ; Although at times she ' s flustered zuhefi they ' re in public mustered Quite a hundred to her credit ' s alzuays scored. IV. She offers no apologies for knozving all the ' ologies ; Can number all the muscles in a dreatn ; Over stenographic notes she most spellbound gloats {Save only zvhen the microbe is the theme) ; But, mark ! O laymen brothers ; ' ' beside these there air others ' ' — This little list is very far from all : ' Neath the dainty cap zuith frills is a head that learning fills, And a scientific knozcledge to appal. 101 In the Dental Lab. ft IF THE ' ' fool-killer " should happen in the laboratory sometime when Mosely is in good trim for asking questions, an inquest wou ' d be held over old Mosely in short order, and the " fool- killer " acquitted, for that boy can ask more questions to the square yard of breath than could ten inquisitive kids at a circus to the square mile. And such questions ! Of course, asking so many, some are sensible, but most of them are — well, they are at least difficult to answer quite often. If you will observe him closely you will notice that his mustache forms an interrogation point on each side, and he has asked so many questions that his mouth actually has a peculiar twist that resembles one. But he asked Dr. Davis a question one afternoon, thinking the doctor was one of the boys, that rattled him to such an extent when he discovered his mistake, that he let a cap for a Richmond fall down a lady ' s collar, and then asked her if she swallowed it. McCannell is witty, but his wit is dry. though unlike Breautt ' s, his has some soul — if it be true that " brevity is the soul of wit. " You are not compelled, however, to laugh at all of Breautt ' s jokes, for he is so small that he can ' t whip you if you offend him, though I must warn you that he gets pugnacious at times, and is then willing to even pay for the privilege of giving a fellow a black eye. Bpt let me tell you, whenever O ' Connor tells a joke, laugh, even if you have to force it (and you generally will), or that great big- Indian will take your scalp. If that boy had a pig for each sty he has had since he has been here, and each pig had grown to be a large hog, he couldn ' t be more hoggish than he is, though we may account for that, from the fact that steak is so tough on the " Bowery " he can ' t chew it, and has to eat pork. He is so economical that he is often called " O ' Connormiser. " 102 Law School MARYLA ND UNIVERSITY, Jan. 2, 1897. Dear Doctor Diagnos: My circulation is very poor this morning.

The car then in collision came With ivagon viozmig slow ; Its liqzdd contents quejiched his flame- The load o ' er him did go.

J-S-H C-T-R, who at first taught the thnid Freshmen the art of ' ' painless extraction ' but now assigns patients to the haughty Juniors in order to give Dr. H-t-o-e a breathing spell, is one of those " well-rounded " fellows, who likes a joke as well as the ne.xt one, but he has such an excess of adipose tissue that it grieves l:ini sorely, and since the little girls on the street address him as ' ' Fatty, " life has been a burden to him; and often, as he rolls his 235 pounds along, he can be heard to remark : " This is a sad world. " He also takes " anti-fat " medicines, and has no love to spare for the lady who got angry with him in his Senior year, and said he looked like a big, overgrown school-boy. Some one said something also about a resemblance between Dr. C-t-r and a tub, and he didn ' t forget the comparison, and when the same gentlemen remarked one day that ' ' Every tub must stand on its own bottom, " he very hotly warned him not to deal in personalities. 108 Perseverance. ' ' You shan ' t ! You shan " The vicihn cried To the cruel dental ' ' Doc ; " ' ' will ! I will ! ' ' Molars replied, His heart as hard as granite rock. Then he struggled arid tugg ' d and strain V, Molars ivith his victim there, ' Till features for either scarce remained. And nigh little as none of hair. But Molars got his victim fast Against a handy wall, And hissed, ' ' T II have that tooth at last If I have to pull them all. ' ' 109 Dope. Since Jirst I hung my shingle out Success teas easy meat. The topmost round I quickly found And got there zvith both feet. For one short year I practised lazv, Then took Judge Harlati ' s seat ; Soon princeps judge of all State courts, I earned my bread and meat. But highei yet I icas to go To meet the great dema?id. I first ccas made Associate, Then Chief Judge of the land. Our Congress then adjourned — had no more to do — While Silver Bill and Billie Gold Both said, ' ' Sir, after you. " fair ladies fought and died for me. My ' spons, " ichcn spread about, Filled safes and vaults of every size, — But then the pipe ivent out. 110 -5 TCvM Y 111 DO YOU KNOW US? Jimmie s Speech at the Final. The hall ivas crowded to the door {It ccas the final day), ll-ith students and young Docts of Lazo; They sat in grand array. The graduates, so proud they seemed, Decked out in cap and goivn. So bright they ivere, their faces beamed With learning, deep, profound. hi front stood men Just -made ] f. D. , They zvere a noble baud ; And those that ivon the LL.B. With haughty mien, grand. A scholar rose upon the stage ( The master ' s pet zvas he) ; His face did every eye engage. Each fieck zvas craned to see. He zuas the brightest of them all, His breast zaith medals decked. His figure zvas commanding, tall. His look the zvhispers checked. The people sat in azve profojcnd To hear his every zvord, Throughout the scene the only sound Was breathing that zvas heard. The scholar proudly raised his head. And then — " to be, to be. Or not to be, ' ' he slozvly said, In accents clear and free. His face nozv turned as pale as death, His arm zvas lozvered dozvn, He gasped as if in zvaut of breath. His eyes turned Izvard the ground. Thus, thus he stood a moment more, Crestfallen and abashed, Then rushed iti terror tozvard the door ; His eyes they zvildly flashed. Oh, long remembered zvas the day II ilhin that sacred hall. When Jimmic Lovely rose to say A speech, and met his fall. 113 The Xi Psi Phi Banquet. Tempting- looks the feast beneath the softened blaze Which fitfully on the shining silver plays ; See the bright objects the slender vases bear : Floii ' ers of richest line and fragrance rare : ' ' Round ma7iy snow-zvhite loaves leaves of smila.v vine, Skillfully woven, in graceful beauty tivine. Circling ' roiind the feast, each to his place assigned, Rich are the dainties the )nany Thetas find. And ivhile the courses come and disappear. Sparkling draughts of szceet libations cheer ; Then the toasts are given and every Theta sings The song of parting zchile the bell of midnight rings. 114 o o o to o |: 2 0 i to ex. o t.

IKi Two Prominent 1 eeth Pullers WHEN PAT VAUGHN came to Baltimore in the Fall of ' 94, he was so timid that he wouldn ' t even ask for another cup of cofifee when a pesky tiy, " the last and meanest of the lot, " would go swimming- in his, nor complain when the parasitic bed- bug attacked him, and as for kicking because he had no patients given him, he would have been embarrassed at the thought, for you must remember that Pat wasn ' t like some of these fresh Freshmen who can give the Professors pointers ; no, no, he was diffident and bashful then, — but nozv — his " cheek " is proverbial. But Pat is handsome (so his old maid patients say), and when he puts on his glasses and goes out calling, with his hair parted in the middle and his handkerchief saturated with " Hoyt ' s German, " no one would ever guess how he acquired so much nerve. McConnell says it was latent, and that after Pat heard Dr. Miles, on the nervous system, he at once became conscious of the fact that he had plenty of nerve ; and it wasn ' t long till the rest of us were aware of it. Walter Boyd is so gentle in the infirmary, and so soft-spoken and mild-tempered in the laboratory, that he is loved and admired by all — students and professors included, — and it must have been some envious fellow who said that it was Boyd who yelled " Go to h you black d , I ' m busy, " when the kinky-headed son of Ham who holds the exalted position of janitor told him a gentleman wished to see him ; and that same fellow says the gentleman who wished to see him was none other than Uncle Jimmie, who heard Walter ' s mild but expressive language. Walter is a good boy ; and one has only to look at him, and that one look will convince him that he is " an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no guile. ' ' I don ' t mean for you to construe that literally, for Walter is Irish, at least his face proclaims him such, and his feet — but we all know he ' s Irish, so what ' s the use of arguing the matter? If he isn ' t Irish then I ' ll not believe Baker can put a foot- ball in his mouth till I see him do it. 117 Coming to the Rye, If a body meet a toddy That is made of rye, Should a body take a toddy, Or should he deny ? Drinkiyig toddy with a body — One who has n t ti i — Is it shoddy of a body, And a gilded si?i ? If that body talks of toddy And you have n ' t cash. Then a body thinks it shoddy And a practice rash. If somebody treats to toddy. Then if s best to try ; Damn the shoddy — d? ' i7ik the toddy That is 7nade of rye. 118 " He ' s an Inj ' ia rubber idiot on a spree.

When we say the largest class, we do not mean to hide any of the bad features by such an in- definite term. Like all preceding classes, we claim to be the best. The general standing of the Class is far ahead of any class for years past. Our honors are not limited to scholarship, but we have the lion ' s share in athletics. We are represented in every branch of athletics. The first Football Team of the University of Maryland was composed mostly of men of Ninety-seven. Of the team, we had manager, captain, one end, tackle, and two subs. On the first Baseball Team we had three players and the manager. We had only one man on the Hockey Team, but he held up the reputation of the Class. The most lasting impressions made while at College were made during the first few days. Our imaginations before reac hing Balti- more had assumed large proportions, and each man had pictured Baltimore and the University as very small things compared with himself. Each individual expected to be met at the train and escorted to the University by at least three members of the Faculty. But things did not turn out as many expected. In writing out our appli- cation before matriculating we had no trouble in telling preceptor and age (all were men). Our introduction was very formal, being in writing, and this history would be incomplete without relating some of the experiences of the men. First, we will record one which will always be a green spot in the memory of a luckless lad from the " Eastern Shore. " He came to the University clad in Summer suit and with necessary straw hat, and was especially worried over the bug-bear entrance exami- nation. Having consulted the Dean concerning the ' ' Weyler Trocha ' ' which he had to pass, he approached the present Dean and timidly asked if he had had much trouble in passing the required examina- tion. The Professor modestly informed him that he was a graduate of a reputable literary college, and was excused from examination. 142 The third year was the most trying. It was divided up into three periods, two of which were enjoyed in peace, and the third in the pathological laboratory, where disease germs and ' ' and er — urs ' ' were equally abundant. The saying, and truth is, " history repeats itself, " and so did our Professor of Hygeine and Medical Jurisprudence. No member of the Class who attended one of those repeated " phenomena, " can deny the fact. So earnestly were w e urged to give a hypodermic injection of morphia in every case that no one of us would hesitate to give it in severe cases of opium poisoning. The crowning event of the three years was the court week. After taking in the evidence for ten days the jurors retired to the jury-room. None of the students sat upon the jury, but the jury sat upon some of the boys. During that time the Faculty was confronted with that unsettled question — " craniotomy. " After much consulting and due consideration, they performed the operation, and fortunately it was upon " ' dead heads. ' " Here the curtain drops with the infant Meds. in the front of the curtain on the stage of life, and the unfortu- nates (dead heads j go through another period of incubation.

While traveling through the country I decided to stop over at this town to see my old friends. On arriving there early one morning I boarded a car to go to the principal hotel, which was some distance from the station. The conductor proved to be Durrett, a famous Western member of our Class. On arriving at the hotel I was met by Steele, the courteous and affable hotel clerk. He was very glad to see me, and sent me up to my room under the pilotage of Bradley, the strong porter. After breakfast I started out to see the town. In the hotel office I met Bispham, whose volubility was proverbial. He gladly offered his services as a guide, knowing that he could then talk to his heart ' s content. In my walks through the streets he pointed out to me the signs on the business houses of different mem- bers of our old Class, some of which I will copy here, beginning with Phillips, viz : — SING HIGH ONE LUNG. Velly Glood Laundy. No Tickee No Washee. KING HUNTER. Tonsorial Artists, also Agents for Baby Carriages and Teething Rings. THE BIENNIAL EARTHQUAKE. H. M. FiTZHUGH, Jr., Editor. THE GORGE HOUSE. P. John, Proprietor. Meals served at ii p. m. Peanuts and Apples a Specialty. GILBERT SMITH, Instructor in the Noble Art of Self-defence. Knock-out Drops served while you wait. 145 B. BARROW. Birds of all kinds, particularly Chirpers. Agent for Limberger Cheese. H. T. BATTS. Christmas Tree Ornaments. ARTHUR HEATWOLE, Dentists. — Painful Teeth Extraction. LAMBKIN, Lamb Butcher. C. T. COOPER, Dealer in Old Clothes. J. S. HOWKINS, Photographer. — Tin-types while you wait. Cabinets after one week ' s sitting. J. A. TOMPKINS. Gent ' s Furnishings. L. N. CiLENN. Books Always Below Cost. MURRAY HARRELL, Hair Dyers. — Turkey Reds a Specialty. O. P. PENNING, Pawnbroker. Money Loaned at 50%. CHARLIE SCOTT. Instruction in Vocal Music. " Rosy Posy " taught Free of Charge. These were only a few of them, and I was very much surprised that so many ])romising young doctors would take up other pursuits, but Bispham informed me that the competition was so great that only a few, including Davidson and Dobyns, could follow their chosen profession. Knowing that I would enjoy a good surgical operation, my guide next took me to their new hospital, where the famous surgeon Ramsey would perform a laparotomy for tlie removal of a carcinomatous growth of one of the mesenteric glands. The hospital 146 was an imposing structure, and I was told that under the very- economical management of Dr. Felts the patients got along very well without eating at all. In the amphitheatre I saw Dr. Ramsey perform this beautiful operation with the able assistance of Latane, the accident man, Miles, Hopkins and Wallace. On the first row, looking on, I perceived a big nose, which was continually being moved out of the way by a man who stood there for that purpose. Of course I recognized my old friend Weinberger who really lived in this room now, for fear he would miss something. Wishing to hear a good medical lecture again, I went over to the college which was connected with the hospital, and heard one of Dr. Streett ' s famous lectures on Anatomy. Wanting to amuse me as much as possible, Bispham took me to a baseball game. Manager Harris was there in all his glory with Seaton, his great friend and co-laborer, but unfortunately his team was beaten and, much to my surprise, Harris was tarred and feathered by the players and carried around the field. This I was told was the ending of every game, for the home team never did win. I was invited by some gentlemen whom I met at the baseball park to visit a resort for feeble minded people, where I was informed Denson and Hicks were confined, their peculiar malady being a constant desire to organize a football eleven to play Mt. St. Mary ' s, but as my time was limited I had to decline. On my way to the hotel I stopped to look at the freaks in the dime museum. Among those that I saw were Page, the living skeleton ; Rind, the fat boy ; Banks, the doctor; Dyer, the little dog; Kellar, the dwarf ; Sellman, the last survivor of the seven sleepers, and others which I haven ' t time to mention. After supper I called at the handsome Y. M. C. A. building to see my old friend McGinnis, who held the position of general secretary. He was very glad to see me. While there, little Bell came in, still carrying Dr. Neale ' s satchel, which had increased in size to an enormous extent. There were two entertainments going on that night, and I was at first undecided as to which one I should attend. But hearing that one was to be a lecture on South Africa by the great traveler Causey, I decided to take in the other, knowing that I had heard the lecture several times before. The other enter- tainment was a musicale, given for the benefit of Neale, an old friend of the students, who had become very poor as a result of too much faith in student ' s promises to pay. The company was composed of a number of his former patrons, among whom was Fisher, Wallace, 147 Dawson, Northrop, Rogers, Everett, the comedian, and Dr. Jones. One of the boxes was occupied by Ludwig, the Mayor of the town, and his family of ten children. I was told that he had an idea of becoming President of the United States some day. After the per- formance I was invited by one of the old Housemen to their nightly eleven o ' clock spread at the Housemen ' s Club, which invitation I gladly accepted. On entering I was greeted by Love, the President of the club, who had grown very fat, and it was whispered about that he weighed three hundred pounds. What a night we had ! The whole twenty-four were gathered around the table, and tales of the old times at the Hospital was the order of the day. Our memory went back to the roof-garden concerts, the little eleven o ' clock suppers, the nurses ' dance — which we didn ' t attend — and other pleasant happenings of the old Hospital days. While we were " swopping lies " in this fashion we were startled by a rap on the door and a stern demand for " Two of you men come go out on a case. " On going to the door we found our jovial Dr. Pink Turner who used this most effectual method of introducing himself. After supper the same old musicians tuned their instruments and the meeting ended with " fimmie " singing " Noah and de Ark. " That night I left the brilliantly lighted town (Murray and Harrell having the contract for lighting) with many a pang, but with fond hopes of returning in the near future. 14« Class of 98 Members.

' ' - 14!l History — O ss of 98 IT WILL be remembered that a few years ago, when our dearly- beloved Alma Mater was troubled by a rude and boisterous set of fellows, known as Ninety-seven, a number of wise men assembled from all quarters and hastened to her rescue. These wise men, since known as Ninety-eight, succeeded in keeping in check the semi-civilized beings, who so characterized themselves by unruliness. Soon after, Uncle Dorsey, having appreciated the valuable service thus rendered by Ninety-eight, held a consultation with the Faculty, whom he found unanimous in the declaration that such a body of men deserved better accommodations than were at that time avail- able, and accordingly new ideas were instituted, and the erection of a brand new hospital for their especial benefit was begun. The class men were, of course, much gratified ; and having had the welfare of their Alma Mater at heart, passed resolutions that they would not only continue to preserve the fair name of this most eminent and respectable university, but also would by subsequent deeds endeavor to shed more lustre on its already bright history. So much for the past, which the author has chronicled with absolute impartiality, and will, therefore, not answer for any historical error that may be present. But the outlook for the future is still more radiant. Class Ninety- eight will have the grand distinction of being the first to graduate under the rules of the four-year course, the members having been admitted to the second year on account of their degrees and superior intellects. The class, being small and surrounded by an impenetrable air of dignity and reserve, is not extensively known, though it has many virtues. The members are also very generous, and have agreed to extend fatherly protection over a donkey-like class known as Ninety- nine. They will also endeavor to quell the turbulence of the Fresh- men by feeding them on peptonized milk, and if this does not suffice they will be turned over to the care of Uncle Bill, who is an expert in treating babies. It may be said that the Classmen do not believe a certain rumor, and that they hope Uncle Bill will be with them next year. 150 At their last meeting it was decided not to announce the officers until the next Fall. They can say, however, that they have a King among their number ; so no one will deny that the Class of Ninety- eight is a royal one. Among its members are to be found such lights as Carter, Milbourne, Heatwole, the quizmaster, and Stack, the rail- road magnate. Then they have Felts, the pill roller, who is apothecary at the Hospital, and who has enjoyed great popularity through his ability for dosing the resident students who suffer at all times with swelled heads. The writer might go on and give a glowing description of each member, but current literature having already done so, it is not necessary. And though the brave deeds of the Class could furnish material enough to fill several volumes, the Historian has exhausted the space set aside for him, and must therefore end his chronicle by assuring all that the glorious deeds of Class Ninety-eight will be more fully recorded next year. 151 Class of ' 99.

Its appearance during- that year was all the more remarkable, for that was a year of reforn-,s and revolutions, .md Ninety-nine was not to be behind-hand in f)llowini4 ' the e cnts just previous to the date of its birth. Only a few months before, and old Haltimore, wliich had been l rospering- quietly for the last fourteen xcars under the reit n ot Ferdinand VII was swept by a tidal wave, and that worthy gentleman was deposed, and a Republican form of goxernment set up. lo4 Then followed a reform in ihe City Council, it trying to overthrow the Mayor and take the reins in its own hands. A long and bloodless warfare was waged, and the Mayor, as we know, was victorious. Other cities besides Baltimore felt the effects of revolution and reform, and among them was New York, which has become famous with its Sunday laws and Lexovv committees. It is no wonder then that the Class of Ninety-nine, coming on the scene, as we may say, on the wave of revolutions and during a period of reforms, should be endowed with the spirit of reform. Fates had decreed that Ninety-nine should play an important part in the history of Old Maryland, that college spirit should be revived, and that it should be an important factor in bringing the University to a prominent place in the athletic world. Only a few months before, and the Faculty, in accord with the American Association of Medical Colleges, had very judiciously lengthened the course from three to four years, and Ninety-nine was to enjoy the distinction of being the first class to graduate under the new regime. Here was the turning point in the history of the University, and it was a great opportunity for the sons of Ninety- nine, who immediately seized it, with very good results, as will be shown. College spirit was to be revived, and athletics — that important factor of a student ' s life — was to flourish, and new life be infused into the blood of the students, who seemed to be in a " profound coma, " and cared little for the glory of " Old Maryland. " The students of former years were handicapped a great d eal, as they had to devote all their time to hard study if they wanted to secure their " sheepskins " at the end of three years, for " Long was the way and steep. " Consequently the Class of Ninety-nine found everything bordering on " Rip Van Winkleism, " and had to administer restoratives and resuscitate the dying athletics. An Athletic Association was soon established, and as there was plenty of good material the combined efforts of students and Faculty soon had winning teams on the field in every branch of athletics. But how feather after feather was added to the cap of Old Mary- land ' s glory will be told in another chapter of this book. So we will go back and tell something of the history of " his remarkable Class. Our first year was, of course, one full of interest for us, and afforded a great deal of amusement for our superiors in the study of medicine. 155 The first thing of importance in a Freshman ' s Hfe at a medical college, after getting used to the high sounding vocabulary of the professors, was to witness an operation in the amphitheatre of the Hospital. How the sweet faced nurses, and attendants as well, smiled on us as we walked in with the rest of the students, clothed in the bravado of a " verdant Freshman, " to see the " clinic. " How well we remember the effects of that hour. With eyes full of wonder and surprise we watched the proceedings until we began to ex- perience that funny feeling for the first time. In a few moments we were longing for the green fields and grass of our country homes, and on a plea of the air being ' ' too close, ' ' or the ' ' odor of the ether was too oppressive, " we managed to scramble out into the fresh air, and wait for our friends who had tried to brave it out, and had to be carried out some moments later — much to the amusement of Seniors and nurses. How we remember the smile of the sympathetic nurses, who could easily see we were decidedly " fresh. " It is needless to say that some of us had a horror of the amphitheatre for some time after, and looked up with awe and admiration to the upper classmen, who to us seemed so brave, and looked forward to the time when we should enjoy the distinction of " House-students, " and have the privi- lege of assisting at operations and becoming acquainted with the nurses. The next thing in our curriculum was to pay a visit to the dissecting room. Under the guise of being very accommodating, a Soph, would kindly take one of us and initiate him into the " sacred room of skull and bones. " We were told to carry something to eat, such as peanuts, as everybody had to eat in the dissecting room to overcome the effects of the sights, etc. How he would have that creepy feeling, which can be better understood when felt, and his horror can only be imagined when in diving down into his pockets his hand would suddenly come in con- tact with something cold and clammy, and he would fish out a few fingers, or an ear of a departed fellow-being, placed there by a generous Soph. How the latter delighted to see that look, and know that the Freshman ' s cardio-inhibitory center in the pneumogastric nerve had been excited, causing a slowing or stoppage of the heart ' s action. Oh ! his revenge was sweet, and he could look back on the day when he was made to feel the same way. 156 How our eyes would glisten with suppressed admiration as we would hear some upper classmen in the dissecting room spouting out anatomy, as if it was the easiest thing in the world, and we longed for the day when we would be so familiar with muscles, their " origin and insertion, " such as the " levator labii superior! alae qui nasi, " and could tell the " collateral circulation of the sub-clavian artery when ligated in its third part. " We would go home with a firm resolve to conquer anatomy, but would very soon find that anatomy had conquered us, and that we could recommend it as the best sleep-producing agent in the whole materia medica. Soon we saw with pride our names " posted " on the bulletin boards for " lab ' ' work, and in due time we were made acquainted with tests, reagents, etc., in the chemical " lab, " and the workings of the microscope and Dr. Miller in the histological " lab. " In the latter we soon found how inadequate was our knowledge of making sketches of what we ?aw under the " scope. " The work of some of us was ludicrous in the extreme, and too often have we seen the sarcastic smile of professor, in which lingered the bacilli of dis- dain, as he tried to make out our works of art. Our work in the chemical " lab " progressed very well, and, with the exception of a few, we were soon to be great chemists. One poor fellow, however, was told to ask the demonstrator for concen- trated HoO, and he innocently inquired for the same, much to the amusement of the Class. But the best joke of all was the poor fellow who, mistaking the water spigot for the gas jet, fastened his Bunsen burner to the former and turned it on, and the surprised look on his face when the water spattered on him was enough to make a saint laugh. But our Freshman year was not without its bright side and blessings. For how often would we sit with that self-satisfied look during one of those hours that seemed never to end, when one of the professors announced that he would " quiz " instead of lecture that day, and we knew our names would not appear on his " quiz list. " How pleased we have felt with ourselves when we have seen our friends, the " Sophs, " squirm around and turn all colors under an anatomy ' ' quiz, " or asked about certain drugs in the materia medica of which they seemed never to have dreamed. Then we dreaded the day to approach when we would be responsible for the honor and intelligence of our Class ; when we would have to undergo the torture of a " quiz, " and the work necessary in preparing for it. 157 In due time, however, we began to assume that know-it-all expression, and look as wise as embryo doctors ought to look, as w e walked around the dispensary, and carried a large number of note-books, and appeared to be ready to practice without any further study. Some of us even tried to raise a beard, and one of our number succeeded very well, and took a kind of sub-rosa enjoyment in being taken for a doctor by the patients in the dispensary. He was, of course, the pride of the Class, but since then we have made a law prohibiting any Freshman to appear in a hirsute adornment. But, alas, our year of " peaceful happiness in gross ignorance " was passed, and after a relaxation of college cares, and complete rest, we had to come back to enter our Sophomore year, and take up the stern realities of college life. There were those four minor branches to pass off at the end of the term, and that staring us in the face all the time accounted for that worried look and swollen eyes, which showed up so prominently at the morning lectures. These symptons may have been attributed to a night out w ith the boys, but such is not the case, as may be found on questioning the individuals of our Class. Now we had to bid adieu to our lady friends and cancel our social engagements for a time, for it was " dissecting room " this night, and " quiz " another night, and it became a case of choosing between pleasure and duty, and we had to choose duty, very much against our wills. It now became our pleasant duty to answer to our names during an anatomy " quiz, " which comes too often this year. How we longed for our year of " verdant freshness, " when we could roam about as free as lambs, but it was all over now% and we had to face the music. For the first time we now found out how little we knew, and how difficult it was to tell what we did knows with about four hundred students and a professor waiting for an intelligent answer, which, alas ! they did not often get. It was now we found the true meaning of incompatibles : That having to study so much w as incompatible with going out e ' ery night, and when we did study, for fear it might have a disastrous effect on our systems, w e had to take the accompanying antidote, viz. : " Neale ' s Solution, " 99% strong ( " Adonis " preferred); dose from three to six glasses every study period of an hour, until an accumu- lative effect had been produced on the brain, with its usual results. 158 Such is a student ' s life in a great city, boarding on Lombard street — commonly known as " Hogan ' s Alley. " Here we must mention with a great deal of tenderness our sister Class — Ninety-eight. Up to this time we have been going hand in hand, " sharing each other ' s sorrows and bearing each other ' s joys. " We started together, but, by a wise fore-knowledge that just saves them a year, the members of that brilliant Class matriculated before the four years ' system went into effect, and will by that action graduate a year ahead of us. They are a small band, but they make up in brilliancy for their small- ness, and their numbers may be added to, as each year a small dele- gation prefers to stay another year at college — at least, the Faculty desires it, and they submit. By some intervention, however, a few may be enabled to graduate with us. We will welcome them very kindly — with open arms — if such should happen to be the case, but for their sakes let us hope that none will be left for Ninety-nine. Our Class is a remarkable one, taking everything into account. We are Famous, and although we have had our Legge palled quite often, and even been Shook till we turned Green, our usefulness has gone on. We made a large Deal with the janitor; and the Faculty, who thought because we had a White-hurst we were going to die young, but we fooled them, and have been making remarkable Gaines in every department. Everybody knows Spraggins, the homoeoquack, who answers so well in " quiz. " They say Williams ' head is much larger since he corrected Dr. Winslow, and contains more anatomy than Smith ' s (not Dr. Smith) but Smith, Ninety-nine, who was self-appointed demonstrator this term in the dissecting room. Armstrong still blushes and says, " I don ' t know, sir " to all questions asked by professors. " Teddy ' ' has found his vocation at last, namely, as chalk artist. This was shown during the last month, when he was asked to make a drawing on the blackboard of the peritoneum. Shorty Guerard has ordered a new face, and will appear in it shortly. The quartette, composed of Cotton (not absorbing cotton), Gil- bert, Hahn and Guerard, gives concerts weekly, which all members of the University are invited to attend ; but as I must confine this history to one part of this bocjk, I had better come to a stop with this brief sketch, for to give a detailed history of this remarkable Class would take up three such volumes, and those desiring such a one can have it by applying to the historian, m 150 Thus our second year is about to close, and we are about on the threshold of our Junior year. We ask you all not to be too harsh in criticising our Class, as it is still young. But judging from our past, I can only prophesy great things for Ninety-nine, especially when we have the new Hospital, and Gymnasium, and everything for the com- fort of the students. So look out for us in Ninety-nine. KiO Class of 1900. Members. Armstrong, L. W Baltimore, Md. Barlow, O. D Gloversville, N. Y. Barrow, Craig (A. B.) 2. A. E. . . . Savannah, Ga. Bayne, F.

By Herodotus, Father of History— Mother unknown. eCTOBER the very first, eighteen hundred and ninety-six, ushered into existence a Class of the University of Maryland which is destined to go thundering- down the corridors of time — containing the brightest intellects and the least number of Smiths of any class in the University. It can well boast of advantages possessed by none of the others. The class of " naughty-naught " is composed of sixty-three men gathered together from the ends of the earth. Very little can be said historically in behalf of the Class. It has not been in existence a sufficient length of time. Of course it might be chronicled that some of us endeavored to produce a precipitate by adding concentrated H2O to an acid solution of Y. M. C. A., 163 but since we wish it said of us that we stuck with commendable persistency to the facts, we deny the allegation " officinally. " Pur- suant to a notice reading thusly : The Stiffs Will Hold an Election of CLASS OFFICERS In the Dissecting Room AT 4.60 P.M. we duly assembled. Professor Strickler, conceded to be the most rapid test-tube washer in the laboratory, rendered very feelingly on the ribs of the Egyptian mystery those soulful lines which have so often been set to music, and then upset: — In the days of old Rameses, Are you on ? In the days of old Rameses, Are you on ? In the days of old Rameses— That story has paresis, Are you on, are you on, are you on ? Mr. Owings, of the State of Maryland, then read a paper entitled " Some observations on the therapeutic effects of Liquor Plumbi Appendicitis. " After which our genial Doctor Clark, clothed in dignity and a lead pencil, called the meeting to order. Mr. Martin, the " boy orator of Jones Falls, " was nominated for president of the Class, and duly elected. The Freshman has been called a malady ; perhaps it is true, per- haps not. Assuming that such is the case, the symptoms are a pre- dilection for quizzing others and an insatiable desire to take all the inside lectures. 1G4 Differential Diagnosis. Let a Sophomore even scent a " quiz, " and he either perches on the ' ' roost ' ' or grabs his hat and makes for the door amid the shuffliiig of various feet belonging to envious class-mates who would like to do the same thing themselves. Not so with a Freshman. He sits still and calmly surveys the havoc produced by the awful onslaught of the quizmaster. Treatment. The treatment of the Freshman Class of 1896 has been " cordi- ality ' ' in heroic doses. To the upper classmen we would say: You have ever treated us with the greatest consideration. Class lines have you obliterated, and you have taken us in among you in a way we neither anticipated nor expected. You have been kindness itself. The honorable professors with whom we have come in contact have shown a heroic determination to explain away the difficulties lying in our path — whether engaged in pointing out that the tricuspid valve is not situated in any of the molar teeth or that the cardio-inhibitory center does not lie between the corpora quadrigemina, and the anthrax bacilli, they are equally affable. Gentlemen, we join in wishing you " health, wealth and happi- ness. " May you never be pigeon-toed. Prognosis. Some of us will never graduate. One from our number has already gone to that Great Quiz which none may cut, and for which no one may " bone up. " Some, mayhap, will enter other fields ol usefulness, and of the survivors of that Class which on the first day of October, 1896, heard for the first time that commanding injunction from the Seniors assembled, to " sit down, you stiff, " all will tread that rugged steep, life ' s pathway, ' till evening shadows wrap their forms about, and flights of angels sing them to their rest. 165 Department of Dentistry. 167 Maryland Uniyersity 1©97. 1«8 paculty FERD.

They appeared, coming from all points of the earth — from the Occident to the Orient, and from the North to the South. There were men tall, dark, brawny, bony, short and fat ; knock-kneed, pigeon-toed, bow- legged; and, as a whole, a more grotesque body of men could not be found. Do not think, kind reader, that the above description is meant in any way to reflect on the kind, noble and generous dispositions of the individuals ; for there were many who would borrow your instru- ments, and even your trousers, never thinking of returning them, for the thought itself seemed unpleasant. These woe-begone specimens of humanity were coming in day by day until the 24th of October, when work began in good earnest. The laboratory had the appearance of a machine shop, but the sounds which issued therefrom were more like those from a boiler manufactory. Smoothness was uncommon and conflicts numerous. The death of our much esteemed brother, Calixto D. Badilla, which happened like unto all noble characters — while he was at the post of duty — cast a cloud of sorrow over the whole school, through which only did the sun of time shine. Christmas and New Year vacations passed uneventfully, and the 2d of January found most of us at work again. About the s econd week of January the first Hockey Team of the University of Maryland was organized in the Dental Department. Although this team did not have the oppor- tunity of winning many laurels, its organization was the initial step in the formation of the other athletic teams of which the University is now so proud. Time progressed, work advanced, and knowledge was displayed until the 6th of March, when this knowledge was put to a test by examinations. 173 Amidst the uproar and general upheaval of this time a second sorrowful and heartrending- event occurred. The author, a Mr. Has- well, of the junior Class, who by his prominent clerical position was brought into close contact with the students of all the classes, came to the sad conclusion (which, of course, was correct) that marriage was a failure, and as there appeared only one way out of the difficulty, he antisepticized himself internally with a pint of Hg Clg, and jumped from a fourth-story window, leaving two widows to mourn his loss. Although Mr. Hasw ell ' s death cast a shadow over the pleasant memories of the past year, the students left for home rejoicing that one year of their martyrdom was at an end. The Summer over, the Freshman Class unfurled itself into the Junior. The latter student is the one above all others who feels that he is especially identified with the College. He has risen above the life of the previous Class with the consciousness that, after all, the Freshman year occupies a subordinate position, and is but a stepping- stone to the broader life beyond. He has outlived the verdancy of the Freshman and is free from the cares of the Senior. Only one incident happened to mar the even tenor of our way during the whole Junior year, this being a fistic encounter between two bantam-weights, which is ably described on another page by an eye-witness. Nothing of special importance is calendared for this year until the March examinations. This being the first opportunity of trying the final examinations, we of course felt that never before had, or never again would, such insurmountable difficulties slip between us and our degree, but in the Senior year we changed our minds. " When we first came on this campus, Freshmen we, as green as grass ; Now, as grave and reverend Seniors, Smile ue o ' er the verdant past. " On returning from our .Summer vacation, which most of us spent in assisting our preceptors, we are once more hard at work and on the home-stretch for our D.D.S. As we enter the College we look for familiar faces, greeting old acquaintances with a glad and hearty handshake ; and, picking out the unfamiliar ones, we wonder how much the - know and where they learned it. We wander about among the workers, examining the 174 product of their toil with the eye and air of one who knows it all Well may we think we know it all, for we have run the maddenino- gauntlet, and stand ready now lo leaj) into the yawning chasm of professional life. The duties throughout the Senior year being of such a character as to make us feel that our knowledge surpassed that of the under classes, it is only to he expected that to us alone the product of our skill is a thing of beauty and a joy forever. About the first of November the Class was called together, officers elected for the ensuing term, and current business attended to Later in the term, numerous pastimes were indulged in and holidays taken great heed of Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays were enjoyed to their full- est extent. Most of us reverend Seniors returned home fc-r a long vacation. Those who were compelled to remain in the Monumental City during the holidays occupied their time by giving and attending- house-warmings in the dififerent boarding club houses. On the 31st of December, or New Year ' s Eve, following the general custom of watch-meetings, lights were burned long and household gaieties extended far into the " wee sma ' hours " of the morning. As the clock tolled twelve many a Senior heart palpi- tated, some with feelings of remorse and some w ' ith feelings of joy — the former, a student with one branch oft " , the latter, a student with four. Preparations are being made for the final examinations, and as we go to press, we leave them buried in deep thought and medita- tion over some unruly molar, and studying by the dim lamp-light, absorbing untold knowlege from unfathomed depths (Gorgas ' Dental Medicine, fifth edition ; price, $3.50). Oh, ye impecunious unprincipled young inseparables - ' = - ' who share each other ' s thoughts, and wear each other ' s clothes, and smoke each other ' s pipes, and swear each other ' s oaths ; respect each other ' s lights of love, and keep each other ' s secrets, and tell each other ' s jokes ; pawn each other ' s watches, and merry make together over the proceeds ; and sit all night by each other ' s bedsides, in sick- ness; and comfort each other in sorrow and disappointment, in silent, manly sympathy, — Peace be with you, my brothers. May the crown of fame and glory ever rest upon your brows. n 175 Prophecy — O ss of 97 I997-I897. REAR THE CLOSE of the 20th century there was seen strolHng along the banks of the famous river Styx, in the region of Hades, a prominent Shade whose appearance and deportment indicated rank and extraordinary intelligence. This personage was very attractive and was curiously watched by the other and inferior Shades who inhabited this land. One newcomer, more bold than the others, approached him saying, with an humble bow, " Sir, your indulgence I crave, and your august presence in this place leads me to ask your assistance and protection. Whence came you, and whither do you go ? " Impressed by the sincerity and humility of the Shade, the dignitary replied : " Do you not know that I am King James whom the material world knows as one of the most renowned lights of the Dental profession? Do you not further know that I am about to return to the world to take up my work again, for it has been decreed that I may recross the Styx? Many travel this way, but to me alone is given the privilege of returning to earthly scenes. In order that science may not suffer, communication has been established between that world and this lower one. Therefore, the deeds of the Class of Ninety-seven, and the fame of the Faculty of the University of Maryland still live on. No Class ever has, or ever will attain the perfection of this one, said the King, and under my orders their labors continue. " " Follow the doings of the Shades of these illustrious men, " went on King James, " and know for yourself how impossible it is for the Dental profession to survive without me, and how difficult it would be for me to keep up my reputation with soft gold work were it not for these Shades. ' ' King James entered the ferryboat in waiting, and was rowed to the farther side, while the Shade was left to wonder. He had recognized the King and decided to conceal his identity and follow the fates and mysteries of this famous Class. Let us hear his own report as he proceeds. All Hades was astir with the Shades of these great workers, and I had scarcely proceeded into the interior of the region when my attention was riveted upon a gaudily dressed Shade, and turning to 176 meet him, I recognized Dr. O ' Connor. He was ornamented in various ways with gold cusps. The buttons upon his vest and coat, and even upon his shoes, were gold cusps. Ear-rings and ornaments of every description were the same. He was sociable as usual, and while talking we noticed a nervous little Shade coming nearer and singing as he kept time with his feet. In an instant I perceived it was Breault, and in his old patronizing way he offered to conduct me to hea dquarters. The entrance to the grounds and palatial workshop was through a broad archway. Outside the wall we were almost deafened by the hilarity and uproar of two members, and we found them to be Foote and Vaughn. They subsided a little at the coming of the trio, and followed us into the inner court, where we were greeted and welcomed by the watchman and general overseer of the whole colony — our old friend Henry. He was especially courteous, and directed us before entering the palace to robe ourselves in garments of asbestos, which he passed to us. Henry had changed somewhat, but in spite of the flowing beard we recognized the same dignity and intellect. He informed us that the workshop was divided into two departments, one presided over by King, the other by McConnell, each a master w orkman in his line. Just before the door we separated, and I was placed in the care of a guide to be shown every part, and meet those whose fame had been so firmly established. My guide was well posted, in fact seemed to know everything, and I learned it was the Shade of Tribble, the great historian. Once inside I was dazzled by the brilliancy of the scene before me. I inquired as to the system of illumination, and was told that Russell — our Percy — had charge of the machinery of the whole plant. Every engine, every chair, every door, moved at the mere touch of a button — the work of our noted electrician. The Shades moving hither and thither were all costumed in asbestos of many hues. I readily saw the advantages of this material, and was told the idea originated with Webb. Now many of the men in the workshop were very busy, yet occasionally I noticed a little levity to relieve the monotony. No one as yet knew me, and I was deeply interested in all that I saw and heard. It was my great desire to meet the heads of the departments. King and McConnell. The historian conducted me thither, and McConnell was the first to greet me. " My, " I said, " time has made few changes in you — 177 the same great muscle and broad forehead. Your Shade is but the image of yourself a century ago. Your management in this great affair does not seem to leave a trace of care. " While we were dis- cussing various things, King announced an order from the upper world for one ton of soft gold. " We depend, " said Mac, " upon the influence of our Alma Mater, and King James in particular, who has just telephoned his urgent need of this metal. " " At the same time, " said King, " there is an order from our youngest and smallest professor whom we used to know as Grieves. His great kind heart is as evident here as in the time gone by, " continued King, " and the Class of ' 97 made a reputation never to be erased from his mind. Dr. Grieves ' years of usefulness still go on, and he orders from us here below all his special bridge-work. " To me the means of communication was still unsolved, and what method they had of transporting finished work and material was a mystery. Our Percy again had shown his mechanical skill by constructing a telephone and opening a pneumatic tube between the two worlds. We were disturbed from further conversation by the shouts of several of the working Shades, loudest of whom was Farley. Now Farley was a late arrival, and he was a hustler. Said he had been driving business our way for years and had made a fortune. It was customary to give a banquet to all newcomers, and with Farley were welcomed Switzer, Seaton, Posey, Hoffman and Duff. Chef Williams soon had the tables in fine shape, for at last Williams, the old janitor, had found one thing he could do fairly well. Greetings and toasts were given and responded to as the repast went on. These newcomers were great additions, and dur- ing their earthly career King James had told them of the never dying fame of Ninety-seven, and Switzer had said, " What in the name of Hades can they do there without us ? Who knows enough to manage the furnaces? The blow pipes? Or . " There was a loud rap on the table and we turned to Dr. .Seaton as he arose in all his ministerial dignity. " Brother Shades, " remarked he, " we are banded together, not as common inhabitants of this lower region, but as the Shades of Mortals who have done marvelous deeds. Look at us a hundred years ago ! We had nothing then but great brains and independence, and behold the mark we made! For the sake of greater unity here below, it is my intention to organize a JV.X.V.Z. Society for the I)urpose of Cries of " Down! " " Break away! " and Dr. Seaton is 178 indulged by being placed in charge of all the vulcanite work. In this he was right at home, for he was well up in the science of ' ' Rubbers. One young Shade was observed neither to eat nor drink. His elbow came in contact with those on either side, for he was con- tinually rubbing, rubbing. I cautiously called the attention of my escort to this, for I thought it might be an infirmity. The Historian was still my companion — " Bless me, " said he, " that ' s Duff. He ' s still polishing on that specimen work for Ninety-seven. " Weller led the Glee Club in singing Gree7iland ' s Icy Mountains, which was much appreciated. He pronounced the benediction and we withdrew. We were surprised by the queer news that four associates of the great Class were awaiting our distinguished consideration on the other bank of the Styx. They were the great singers Ayres, Norfleet, Baker, and dear little Stanley Steele. They had missed the regular route of crossing to Hades, and had been wandering for a great while in vain attempts to attract attention by their singing " One more river, " " Just tell them, " etc., etc. This was a sad state of things, for we loved our classmates, and we hurried to their rescue. Boyd, who was equal to any emer- gency, soon had the problem worked out for us by constructing a bridge across the water, for he always had plenty of brass upon his person. He accustomed himself to such sudden calls for action while in the Custom House. The unfortunates were glad to gain access in this way, and the reunion was a joyous one. The help of just such as these w as needed in our Association. These Shades were assigned particular parts, and the shop was becoming better equipped. Much effort was being exerted to get a shipment of soft gold ready for His Royal Highness. Nick was appointed inspector, and sheet after sheet of soft gold was presented for his approval. There were several attempts made, and finally Nick said : " These will never do. Use more lead and wax because the King demands soft gold, and soft gold he must receive. " We were much discouraged when Collins, of pharmaceutical fame, told us to use soft soap, and our attempt was successful. The gold was finished and sent on to King James. We sent the formula to the University of Maryland — how by a simple process the soap might be extracted and used to good purpose in the laboratory and lecture halls. 179 King James was a silver man, and forwarded the pay in silver dollars. The position of treasurer was one that all wished to hold, but Charbonnel was appointed to hold all the money — and Stack and Anderson to hold him. Still Charbonnel was unhappy. His face told of much suffering and misery, and the cause was that he had brought his hockey stick and skates along and had intended to learn to skate after he reached Hades. They were " no go. " Baker was doing all in his power to start some one to manufacture ice, and all his leisure was spent in trying to obtain subscribers for a rink. He was not so fortunate as O ' Connor, who was beating all records of the other world in the art of kicking. The blow-pipes answered more needs than one and were the largest and most powerful I have ever seen. There were two operated in this great workshop. Williams, A. A., was one blower and Aiken acted in the same capacity. All bridge-work done here more than gratified the highest expectations of Dr. Greives, and King James gave us another order for two tons of cohesive gold. We had no trouble with this, as Martin said at once: " Combine the ingredient glue with the metal, and you will have gold with cohesion enough for any one. " King and McConnell deserve great praise for their brainy administrations. Foreman was useful, but it was as a specialist. He should receive particular mention. He had quite a space of the workshop set off to his exclusive use, and when I made my way to that part I found that there were many tables covered with maps, drawings, etc., upon which he was working. He was acting under certain commissions from Dr. Winslow, received one hundred years ago, to change all anatomical charts in accordance with his (Foreman ' s) great discovery that the femur must articulate with the clavicle. A great reception was to be given to the ruler of the Lower Regions, who had never yet visited this new settlement in liis country. Everything was in readiness, and I turned to behold his entrance. In dazzling splendor, with sparks shooting— but — my head ! ! Am I alive? Well, what has happened, that I am here in this cold room — time, 2 a. m. — my pipe in three pieces on the floor beside me, the ashes all over my clothes. Now I remember : I was suffering agony some time ago with the fifth pair of cranials, and took a dose prescribed by Dr. Heatwole. I remember nothing distinctly since. It must ha -c made me dream. 180 O ss of 98 Members. Anderson, W. E South Carolina. Baulch, E. A New York. Beal, E. C Virginia. Bobbitt, A. M North CaroHna. Brown, F. H Vermont. ] burroughs, E.

Many of them never had been away from home, never absent from the watchful eye of the family circle. They had often seen the location of Baltimore on the map, and heard of real steam cars and electric lights, but all these things they had yet to see. The History of the Class of Ninety-eight, as a whole, is very limited, but the history of its individual members would make an immense volume, — a volume which, after it was printed, should be dropped overboard from some vessel far out at sea. The first thing that was especially noticed about the Class during the first course of lectures at the University, was the amount of sickness that prevailed among some of its members caused by worry and hard study at night. Holmes, Harkinson, " Pittsburg " Williams, Meschel, Evans, and Woolverton were afilicted early in the session, but we are glad to know that they have learned better by this time, and have entirely recovered. The Class has several polished gentlemen in its ranks, of which something must be said, — men, whom no doubt in future crises of this country shall become prominent. " Princess " Stafford and Bobbitt have so far been stars of the Class of Ninety-eight. They have a magnetism about them that has kept them supplied with patients, and hosts of lady admirers. If you should see these two gentlemen during a Lexing- ton street promenade you would pick them out as men of means and influence, who had all the luxuries of life at the ' r command. They dress well, and assume a p ose that would cause the artistic eye of Michael Angelo to gaze with awe and admiration. " Princess " says, " Just wait until I get back to Texas, won ' t I show those Texan Rangers a few of the styles? " Bobbitt says to himself, as he steps from the train on his return home from the first session, " They ' ll never know me now. " I suppose the finest dissection made so far by any members of the Class was that of Leonard and McAndrews, at least they thought so. They couldn ' t quit talking about their work until Dr. Smith saw it. These were his cold, cold words, " That is the worst I ever saw, go home and study up. " Sometime ago a member 185 of the Class, by accident, saw several letters that were written to be sent home by Roach, Harkinson, Thacker, and Hardesty ; they con- tained this extract : ' ' Dear folks at home, outside of my general expenses this month, and in addition to the check I receive regularly, I shall need two dollars and forty-five cents ($2.45), with which I wish to purchase flowers for a sick friend. ' ' (?) I must not forget to speak of Frederick Brown and Thos. Walsh. They are better known to members of the Class as " Little Freddy " and " Irish Tom. " These two come under the head of the second group. Their inno- cence in believing everything told them was their greatest incum- brance for a while, but they have gradually overcome this difficulty, and now find smoother sailing. Brown ' s specialty is the extraction of six-year molars, and Walsh ' s is trying to imitate an Irishman. Only one man has left the ranks of single blessedness since the Class entered the University, and that man was Taggart, — that modest, quiet, unassuming lad from the sunny, white mountains of Vermont. Cupid stung him with his fatal arrow during the Summer vacation, and after the balmy Summer days had faded away and the chilly blasts of Winter arrived, he took unto himself a wife. " May they live long, and die happy, " is our toast to them. The best informed man on materia medica we have is Carpenter. He seems to have spent more time on this branch than on the others. In describing poisoning by hydrocyanic acid, he says, " If patients live half an hour after taking the poison they will live forever. " Since this discovery in science there has been a great demand for this particular drug. The Class of Ninety-eight has two pugilists of more than ordinary ability. Limited space will not allow the writer to eulogize the many glorious victories their courage and science have won for them. Deekens and H ' de alone enjoy this personal distinction, and many Freshmen can relate with tears in their eyes how they were inveigled into Deekens ' room, and then slaughtered. Innocent Freshmen, beware of this man. The friendship he cultivates with you is only a blind to ensnare you. We have but two foreigners in our Class, Grunberg, alias " Sven- gali, " and Cook. Grunberg has mastered the English language better than Cook, but he has been in this country longer, and out in society more. There is no doubt but Cook will attain this high standard before he graduates, as he will be here " some time " yet. 18G When Gallagher first entered the University he had a very bad habit of talking about the great things he had already accomplished in the science of Dentistry. He said his specialty had been confined to making artificial palate attachments, and in this particular line he would be far in advance of the other members of the Class. It is remarkable how much good a little outing will do a boy who has never been away from home. The best athlete of the Class is Tignor. He shows the marked results of long, careful, muscular training. His muscular develop- ment would cause the face of Sandow to blush with envy, and should this development continue it might cause him to be dethroned as the champion of muscular power. There are many others of the Class who might profit by this example of self-development. Farinholt, or " Farrenheit " as he is called, is the only boy in the University who is able to endure the different extremes of tem- perature of the atmosphere. Farinholt is a great society man. He says he is quite an intimate friend of Delia Fox, the actress, and endeavors to make her have a pleasant time during her ' isits to Baltimore. Shafifner had some advantage over the rest of the Class at the beginning of the course. His folks have said, " he is a born dentist. " There is nothing like inheriting the genius of our illustrious fore- fathers. A man so gifted has not the difficulties of early life to keep down his aspirations to fame and fortune. " The Lilliputians " of our Class are four in number — Burroughs, Falls, Balcli, and Hoffman. They were all compelled to have their instruments made in boy ' s sizes. It was also found necessary to have a stool placed in the extracting room, on which they might stand while performing the duties of this department. The individual History of the Class of Ninety-eight in detail, as has been before said, would make an immense volume. Time and space will not permit eulogy on each one ; and those of which nothing has been said, we know their services in alleviating the sufferings of humanity are unequalled by any Class of our department in the his- tory of the University. In concluding this History, my toast to the members of the Class of Ninety-eight is, " That the future history shall be one of triumph over all examinations, and that at the fina roll-call of the Class, in the Spring of 1898, all shall be able to respond to their names and graduate from an institution whose scholarship makes her without a rival. " 187 Prophecy — O ss of 98 1HOPE my readers will not think me infringing upon my dear friend Mr. Bellamy ' s renowned work, entitled " Looking Backward, " in the few Hnes which I am about to write. But being somewhat of a prophet myself, not naturally born so, but simply being elected to that position by my classmates of the University, to foretell the future of the able Juniors, I entitle my work, " Looking Forward. " It is now just twelve long years since I heard the pleasant (?) chimes of the bell calling me to lectures, and since that one happy moment when I went forward to receive my diploma, surrounded by my classmates, I have thought how nice it would be to see them all in years to come. So, having been very fortunate in being blessed with a good practice, and amassing the goodly sum of two hundred dollars, I concluded to suspend further operations and look up some of them. I therewith disposed of my many office fixtures, consisting of four excavators, and three pairs of forceps, one chair (kitchen), one pound of amalgam, and one book of gold, thereby increasing my capital sufficiently to purchase a ticket to California, where I expected to meet my old friend Dr. Frank Harkinson (the man of the large bonnet), whom I found in a cozy office in the midst of Chinatown, catering to the Mongolians ; but as the poor boy seemed to have troubles of his own, consisting of a wife and twelve children, I concluded not to mention -mine, so proceeded to Galveston, Tex., to see Drs. C. D. Holmes, Jr., C. B. Woolverton, and Earl Stafford, alias " Princess Bonnie. " They all seemed to be wallowing in a large (?) practice. To arrive at Dr. Holmes ' office it was necessary to take elevator to the top of the building, commonly known as the attic, where I found the Doctor sufferring from appendicitis, brought on from swallowing his front teeth, kindly knocked down his throat while attempting to collect a long standing bill. Dr. Woolverton I found making one of his celebrated plates, having the vacuum chamber on the wrong side. About all I can say of " Bingy ' s " practice, is that he is very fortu- nate in having his father own the office in which he operates. 188 Dr. Stafford was very jubilant over the fact that he expected a rubber-plate case that month, and had the promise of two gold fillings in the near future. Staffy ' s shoes looked a little rusty, but other- wise he was all right. After wishing the boys all possible luck, I wended my way to the station, and there purchased a ticket to New Orleans, where Dr. Michael met me. Was sorry to learn that he had given up the practice of dentistry on account of ill health, brought on by overwork, and had procured a position in a neighboring " chow-chow " factory, shaving warts off pickles. He claimed to be able to shave one thousand a day; but it sounded to me like an " idle " bar-room jest. From him I learned that Drs. Thacker, Walsh, Grove, Brown, and Roach were doing equally as well in their chosen profession. After tapping him for a V, I took the train for Aiken, S. C, to see Dr. G. W. Burkhalter. Poor bov, he had not mended his ways. From there I proceeded to Berry ville, Va. , where Dr. G. N. Hardesty had his shingle floating in the breeze. Am sorry to say " Quartet ' ' seemed to be suffering from his old trouble, contracted while living on the " Bowery. " His patients consisted principally of the darker shade. From there I journeyed to Culpepper. Va., where I found Dr. G. A. Sprinkel, Jr., hard at work in his father ' s laboratory, making something which he called an artificial denture, but which looked to me very much like a sugar scoop. I have great hopes for George if he only sticks to his father. After seeing the White Elephant, I took a " side-door " sleeper to Pitts- burg, Pa. Drs. Lewis and Moore seemed very glad to see me, and while there they took me to the theatre, and on purchasing tickets I found they had me seated as of old, in the " students ' parquet. " They claimed this to be force of habit contracted while at CoUeee but you can take this for what it is worth. I have my opinion, but would not like to express it. By them I was informed that Drs. Farinholt and Edans were practising in Wampum. Upon arriving there, I found them dis- cussing their practice; the main argument being as to who had had the higher class of patients; and after listening to them for a few minutes, I finally concluded that Dr. Farinholt had the higher, as he claimed to have had several coming from as high up as the tenth and twelfth stories of various tenement flats. Poor Johnnie ' s coat was looking a little shiny at the elbows. From them I learned that Drs. Fording, Quinlan, Anderson, and Harper were all practising 189 in a sma ' l town of about two hundred inhabitants, that is, counting Hving and dead, principally the latter, consequently were not very busy, but as they were getting three meals a day, and the town giving great promise of a boom, thought they had better remain. Am not quite sure about the name of the town, but think it was " Gorgas. " The boys have my blessing. As the soles of my shoes were getting thin, and ha ' ing exhausted ni}- funds also, " hand-outs " not being- very extensive, I concluded to return home. About the rest of the members of the Class I would not like to say, as some of their tales were very pitiful, so we will draw the curtain. Red fire is to be intro- duced here. I have now exerted my utmost power as a prophet, and although the outlook is not very bright, I cannot speak otherwise than I have, for the fact, that by so doing I would lose my reputation as a renowned prognosticator. So he who looks upon these lines, and is desirous of having more of his future told can do so by consulting the author. 190 Class of ' 99. Members. Baker, J. H North Carolina. Bragdon, Chas.

Nearly all of the boys who started with us three years ago are still with us, some having died, a few having gone to other colleges, but we have had the satisfaction of seeing their places filled by good and clever fellows. Our Class is a remarkable one, from the fact that there isn ' t a Smith, a Jones or a Brown in it. And just to think what rapid strides it has made, and yet has but one Foote. As I think of our Class I almost bubble over with enthusiasm, and even now am Aiken to turn the Faucette and let it flow, but am afraid some one might accuse me of assuming Ayres. I am not Reiff " with beautiful language, nor can I clothe my thoughts in Gordy apparel, and if I could Steele a Posey from among Charbonnel ' s collection of beautiful verses I would gladly in sert it here, and give vent to my enthusiasm in some other way, that would prove more clearly my Class pride ; but as I am entangled in a Webb of my own weaving I ' 11 have to extricate myself as best I can, and I can assure you I ' 11 Besore afraid to Russell around among the boys if I don ' t say a whole Stack of good things about them. And, by the way. Watts the matter with the boys from Canada ? They, as well as old Father Mac, who hails from New Zealand, come from a cold clime, but they have warm hearts and are generally well liked. The Foreman of the Class comes from Pennsylvania, and none are so tough, Norfleet as the boys who claim Virginia as their home. The one thing, however, that will place our Class ahead of the classes of the past will be our Bones, Molars, and Briefs. 194 THE DENTAL FRESHIE. 195 Just the other day one of the Class received a letter from one ol the boys of Ninety-six, the one who carried oft first honors, in which he said that it was a greater honor to graduate in the Class of Ninety-seven without honors, than to have graduated in the one oi Ninety-six with honors. So, while the " Briefs ' ' are being made out with despatch and in proper form, and the " Bones " are being assorted and articulated, may our " Molars " keep up an incessant grinding, that we of the Class of Ninety-seven shall have cause to be proud of the part taken by us in getting out the first Annual that the old University of Maryland can boast of. liiC Department of Law. paculty BERNARD CARTER, Esq., Provost.

" After the fall of Napoleon — a series of Congresses — Holy- Alliance — French Revolution — Great Britain — interference — revo- lution — revolution ' ' That last revolution settled it. The somniferous discourse, its soporific delivery, the listless attitude of the deliverer, the general drowsiness and somnolence pervading the deliverees, had combined to produce a slumber so profound as to make it appear that nothing short of a revolution could afford deliverance. Scenes of his school life surged through the mind of Schoenrich, as he sat in his little office, on the top floor of the large office build- ing, whither he had been driven by a thankful, but moneyless client- age, and an unappreciative world. His reminiscences were caused by an announcement he had just encountered in the newspaper, beginning thus : — " This is the day set for the trial of the much-discussed case of Kaufman vs. Chapman. The prominence of the parties involved, as well as the large amount of damages claimed, have caused the case to become one of general interest. As is well known, Mr. Kaufman is suing for assault upon, and insult to, his four senses — feeling, smelling, seeing and hearing, — which assault and insult he asserts were inflicted at the last annual banquet of the Class of Ninety- seven, University of Maryland. He claims |4oo,ooo as a balm for his experi- ence, each of his four outraged senses requiring to be soothed with |ioo,ooo. " A glance at the clock told Schoenrich that the trial had already commenced, so he immediately made preparations to go to the court- house. Having boarded an air-ship he quickly arrived at his destina- tion, and at once started for the scene of the trial. In the hall he encountered several members of the Class of Ninety-seven. Among them was Sadler, a stout individual with a very sanctimonious face, who had reformed his tricks and manners, and was trying to imitate 205 Scriptural characters, in which laudable endeavor he had, ho ve er, never gotten farther than Balaam ' s ass. In conjunction with Father Decker, the rigorous ascetic, his spiritual ad iser, Sadler was engaged in rehearsing to Bright the esoteric joy and beauty of an entire renun- ciation of all worldly pleasures and desires. Bright looked gloomy. His hands were in his pockets, as of yore, but a deep melancholy had displaced the gentle smirk that formerly illuminated his classic feat- ures. The distressing change was to be attributed to the fact of his signal defeat by Ratcliffe in the recent Congressional campaign, when the latter, by the judicious use of a few incomprehensible Latin phrases had made a greater impression on the intelligent populace of the Eastern Shore, than all of Bright ' s congenial smiles. On entering the court-room, Schoenrich was greeted by loud cries of " Hats otf ! " from Reddington and Clothier, the court criers. As he had doffed his hat in the lobby, he turned and saw that the order was addressed to Grandpa Hall, whose high silk hat was still there, though he himself had become bent with age. The old gentle- man removed his stovepipe without deigning a look of recognition to anyone, just as in the days gone by. The court-room wps crowded with illustrious members of the famous Class of Ninety-seven, who had assembled to witness the forensic struggle that was to be the sequel to the deplorable personal wrangle between two of their former associates. The Rev. Charlton B. Strayer, D.D., LL.D., etc., ad injin., was there with his whiskers arranged in a new way. Not only as a mini?-ter but also as an inventive genius, Strayer had proven himself i)ossessed of remarkable abilities. His wonderful inventive faculties had been displayed in the countless different arrangements of his beard and mustache, a new combin ation being e.xhibited daily. Indeed, his friends claimed for him an average of three different arrangements per day, but this statement emanating, as it did, from persons predisposed in his favor, was probably somewhat exaggerated. The substantial countenance of Spencer was also in full view, beaming benignantly on Burton and Gibbons, whose self-satisfied, smiling faces bore witness to the success they had achieved in life. Then there were also Jump, the well- known dealer in hops, and Parker, the living skeleton in the circus where Gately acted the part of the flU woman, and Pulver represented the bearded lady. These last four had given up law for vocations more remunerative to them. Nearby stood Tommy Copenhaver, the 2011 very picture of hopeless patience on a monument. Poor fellow — he had spent nearly all his earnings for the last twenty-five years in the encouragement of a mustache that never came. His office was decor- ated with such mottoes as, " Watch and wait, " " Never say dye, " " Everything conieth to him who useth the proper hair inducer, " and others of a similar and equally edifying character. With great sighs, far out of proportion to his own diminutive size, he was in the habit of examining the faint down on his upper lip twice daily through a strong microscope, and several times when he thought he detected an increment, slight though it was in its length, he gave a dinner in celebration of the joyous event, only to be bitterly disappointed by discovering that is was but a passing delusion, and by receiving a verification of the old saw that, " All is vanity and vexation of spirit. " How enviously he eyed Choate, who was standing not far away stroking his long beard. Choate ' s magnificent gift of talking infinity and saying zero had won for him the admiration of the Populists, which admiration was enhanced to such a degree by his shaggy beard, that they offered him the nomination for the Presidency if he would join their party. He accepted, and was consequently enjoying the distinction of being a defeated. Presidential candidate. On the bench sat Bansemer, with a very long and profoundly pensive face, and " Toots " Maydwell, dozing, of course. Beside p 207 them two large teet appeared on the desk, behind which the presence of Bennett was surmised, he having been assigned to temporarily take the place of Fisher, who was unable to appear, owing to a severe case of expansion of the cranium, an affliction from which he had been suffering since his appointment as Justice of the Peace, but which had been rendered acute by his recent elevation to the Bench. Kaufman was on the stand. He was testifying as to the origin of the unfortunate trouble between himself and his former friend. According to his statement, it all arose over a book published by Chapman, entitled " The Influence of the Death of Homer on the Development of the Common Law Counts in Assumpsit, " in three volumes, in which work the learned author endeavored to prove with much erudition and profuse quotations that the passing away of Homer exercised no appreciable influence on the development of the Common Law Counts. Thereupon he (Kaufman) became interested in the subject, and answered with a short treatise in four volumes, which proved conclusively that if cloud-compelling Zens had only prevented Homer ' s untimely death, and preserved him a few thousand years longer, and if the Common Counts had been in use a few thousand years before they really were, and if — [Fechtig and Harlan, counsel for defendant, here objected to witness ' unnecessary pro- lixity]. Kaufman then continued that if these and various other circumstances, into the details of which he would not go [sigh of relief from the court-room], had concurred, that then, and in that event, the death of the Greek poet might have had some slight influence on the Common Counts. He mentioned, incidentally, that he contem- plated the preparation of a work showing in what these influences might have consisted. [At this, Denhard, Mayor of the recently incorporated city of Highlandtown, and Forsythe, his private secretary, gave involuntary but sonorous groans, for which they were fined by theCourt, Clothier and Reddington meanwhile making the roof ring with loud and angry cries of " silence ! " ] The testimony continued that Chapman had, by a replication in five volumes, expressed the opinion that inasmuch as Kaufman ' s assertions were based on suppositions, shadowy, impossible hypoth- eses, they must necessarily all be fallacious and worthy of no credence whatsoever. That the feelings of animosity thus engendered came to an outbreak at the twenty-fifth annual banquet of the Class of Ninety- 2(I.S seven. On that occasion when Runimel, member of Congress from West Virginia, had finished his address, the auditors were naturally very tired, and some even yawned. [At this juncture the room resounded with a gentle snore, which was traced to Judge Maydwell, who on receiving a slight thrust in the ribs from his associate. Judge Bansemer, inquired drowsily : " Is the lecture over, Ott ? " A stronger thrust and a soft tap from one of the large feet roused him and the trial proceeded.] Surratt, the toastmaster — so plaintiff went on to say — had then proposed the next toast, to which Fallon was about to respond, when Chapman, thinking he noticed a sleepy look in Kaufman ' s eye, remarked to Requardt, who sat between them, that even Homer nodded occasionally. This reference to the subject of their antago- nistic lucubrations being quietly resented, Chapman had risen and deliberately seizing Kaufman ' s nose, had given it a vehement twitch. The timely intervention of his friends forcibly restraining him from further personal violence, he retreated a step, and elevating his hand to his own olfactory organ, arranged his fingers in an offensive position, indicative of contempt, saying at the same time: " You cant ' t monkey with me, Marcus Aurelius ! " For these injurious actions and words, plaintiff claimed damages. All these points were brought out in an admirable manner by Cahn and Greenbaum, solicitors for plaintiff, whose genius for asking questions exhibited years ago in the lecture hall had in no wise degenerated. Cross examination being waived, Slingluff was put on the stand on behalf of the complainant. He stated that the books written by the parties to the suit were immense volumes, and that, though he had never read them, he knew from simply looking over them that the quotations they contained were, as he very appositely expressed it, something awful. He averred that, as far as he knew, he was the only mortal besides Piper who had been so audaciously venturesome as even to look through them, since most people contented them- selves with glancing at the title-page and feeling sick. Cross exam- ination elicited the further facts that Piper had read a great part of the learned researches, but had died from the effects of a Chinese quotation on the third page of Kaufman ' s book ; that Piper ' s relatives thereupon sued Kaufman for damages, but that the Court took the case from the jury, it being such a plain instance of gross contribu- tory negligence. 209 Lee Meyer, who was next called, with much volubility and great oratorical exertion, substantiated the statements of Slingluff, as to the ponderosity of the tomes. The rupture of his windpipe which had occurred when he was " splitting the ears of groundlings " while on a stumping tour through the rural districts some time previously, and which it was hoped would render him permanently harmless, had healed, so that he was now more vociferous than ever. He had hardly concluded his testimony when a thing labeled " Exhibit A, " which had been standing near the Judges ' desk, turned round and began to move toward the door. It was discovered to be Conrad, to whom someone had attached the label, either through inadvertence, pardonable in this case, or mischief, also pardonable in this case. He was closely followed by Hoblitzell, and now the reason of the sudden exodus flashed across the assembly. It was time for their daily promenade on Lexington street. First as rivals, and after- ward as friends, these two had day after day for many years, as regularily as clockwork, paraded that thoroughfare; and it was characteristic that while Hoblitzell in time became acquair.ted with, and beloved by, all the store girls on the route, Conrad simply surged by like an ocean swell. The latter still retained his old sobriquet of " Count, " although being but a dude, he really was not of much account. He was Past Grand Master of the United Order of Ameri- can Beauty Spots, in which Griswold and Thomas, the Siamese twins, were High Priests. An individual, whose head was entirely screened from view by a gigantic collar, now took the stand. A voice that proceeded from behind the collar, the interposition of which gave it a sepulchral sound, was recognized as that of Jack Requardt. Notwithstanding the agonies he suffered, especially in warm weather, by reason of the extraordinary altitude of his collars, their height had increased to keep pace with his inordinate fondness for such neckwear, until matters had arrived at the present deplorable stage. Indeed, Requardt was seriously considering a generous offer, lately made by a wide-awake advertising agency, for the rental of his collar for the purpose of exhibiting advertisements thereon. The voice from behind the collar testified that its owner was present at the banquet of the Class of Ninety-seven; heard Chapman ' s allusion to the occasional nodding of the lamented Homer, and had then heard Kaufman answer that it would be better for the world if some people should nod instead of writing books. Thereupon 210 ail sounds of a scuffle had ensued. He did not see the contestants on account of his intervening collar, nor was he cognizant of what was said during the scuffle, because the sounds were so muffled by the time they reached his ears. When interrogated as to why he incommoded himself with such a monstrous collar, he replied that he did it for the sake of appearances. If this was his sole object, he certainly succeeded wonderfully. This collared individual was then collared by a colored individual and assisted from the stand. He was joined by his two bosom friends, Foos and Hubner, who had long competed with him in enduring mental and bodily anguish on account of high neckwear, but whom he had left far behind. Hubner, though not exactly a himen miindi himself, had successfully passed the civil-service examination for chief of lamplighters of Baltimore City; while Foos had accepted a more stationary and quiet position as dummy in the show-window of a large clothing establishment on Baltimore street, where he was per- mitted to indulge, to his heart ' s content, his passion for wearing new clothes. As the illustrious triumvirate passed out, a no less illustrious portion of the Class — the foreign jurists and statesmen — was brought into prominent view. There was Archibald, who had for years occu- pied a position as Judge in that judicial circuit of Florida which em- braced the Everglades, where, perhaps from his daily association with alligators, he had acquired an exceedingly snappy temper. His face looked as sour as if he had swallowed an entire lemon orchard. It reminded everyone beholding it of a lobster — it was so crabbed. Close by him stood the two distinguished Virginians, Lyell, the Governor of the Old Dominion, and Chambers, who represented her in Congress. The latter, being literally a great man, was con- sequently quite high-minded, and had, therefore, involuntarily contracted the habit of looking down on his associates. Lyell had overcome this habit, so far as it concerned him, by allowing his pompadour to grow to an awe- inspiring height. It w ' is reported that he used three pounds of glue a week to keep it erect. But this (i. e., the report, as well as the glue) was by others asserted to be a mere fabrication. Wilson, too, was there. That celebrity had at one time shown dangerous symptoms of an unholy desire to add to the vast array of literature on the Rule in Shelley ' s Case, but was deterred by timely threats 212 of tarring and feathering from his more humane Cowboy fellow- citizens. After dismissing his morbid ambitions, and dropping much of the polish he had acquired in the East, he gradually succeeded in winning the confidence of the Cowboys, so that he now occupied the proud post of Governor of the Lone Star State. Before the trial proceeded, the serenity of the court-room was disturbed by a slight controversy. Telfibs W. Marriott, the eminent real estate dealer, had made some irrelevant ejaculation terminating with his usual allusion to the gods and little fishes. Ash, though he did not understand what was said, heard that some remark had been made: that sufficed him; he, of course, immediately disputed every- thing, and began maintaining his views in a most voluble and ex- cited manner. Clothier exerted his utmost lung power; Reddington ' s voice considerably damaged the welkin, and the Court imposed a heavy fine before he was persuaded of the impropriety of giving utterance to his feelings at that time and place. A number of witnesses that followed stated substantially the same things previously offered in evidence. Marine, the Class tow- head, and who as a lawyer had proven a gem of the first water; Wynn, who had won laurels as a reporter, ever since he conquered the not anomalous habit of taking copious notes at the beginning of a discourse or lecture, and falling asleep toward the middle of it ; Speed, whose fame had sped over the State since he shaved off the ragged hirsute growth on his lip, and devoted himself to raising turnips ; Mayo, the sunburnt captain of an oyster boat ; Foster, the well-known restaurateur and gastronomer; all gave their testimony. The cross-examiners could not extract much from Morton, whose hesitating way was so predominant that information had to be drawn from him like a cork from a bottle. Mister appeared on the stand in garments anything but new. In choosing between the law and starvation he seemed to have obtained both. The fickle goddess of fortune had not entered the office of Mister, at least he often said he missed her. Dodson, when he was called wore clothes that might have been stylish twenty years ago, thus proving that his former nickname, " Rip Van Winkle, " had not lost its applicability. Robinson was called but did not respond. The Court was about to order his arrest when Schoenrich volunteered to explain the culprit ' s absence. As he took the stand the Court expressly charged him to refrain from puns. He answered : ' ' I shall, for I fear w?zish- ment. " After the hubbub had subsided, and he had been fined for 213 contempt of Court, he stated that Robinson was confined to his room from the effects of a blow inflicted by an enraged attorney whom he had defeated in a law case. " What made the other lawyer so angry? " was asked. The answer came promptly : " Well, you see, after his victory Robinson crew so " The tumult which followed was indescribable. Judge Maydwell cried from the bench : " Aren ' t you ashamed of yourself, Ott ? " A noise arose as of a violent moving of chairs, of the loud shuffling of many feet, a majestic figure holding aloft a lighted torch seemed to approach, and Schoenrich closed his eyes in apprehension of impend- ing doom. The voice of Maydwell again smote upon his ear : " Aren ' t you ashamed of yourself, Ott? The lecture is over. Here ' s a fellow that ' s always growling about others dozing, fast asleep himself. " It was indeed so. The somniferous discourse had concluded, the listless lecturer was leaving the hall, the moving of chairs and shuffling of feet were caused by departing, rejoicing students, while the majestic figure resolved itself into Range, the janitor, laboriously lighting the gas. " Old men dream dreams, but young men see visions. " Can this have been a vision ? 214 O ss of 8 Members. Bartlett, J. Kemp, Jr Baltimore, Md. Benson, Robert C Wellham ' s, Md.

There were tow and towzled heads among them, Puritan and Cavalier locks, and polished craniums with no bristle or mattress crop to harvest. Certain members of this, as yet, lawless assembly had traveled from the far-off region of Highland- town, where the sun rises and the breweries thrive ; various rioters had hoofed it from the sweet-scented scenery of Spring Gardens, some had hied them hither from the parks and squares of the fashion- able West End. Distant lands and States had sent their represent- atives. A goodly company of blue men and gray men, gold men and silver men, wise men from the East and wild men from the West, had come to sit at the feet of Solomon. A dinner bell rang in the great domed building nearby ; the future morgue-masters and census decreasers filed in, the clock struck «i.x, the mob did break and enter the little brick shanty, labeled Law School, and the present Junior Class was born. Li our early life at the University we were made aware of the existence of a few self-thought superior beings who lingered in the library, posing in attitudes according to Delsarte, indicative of affected intellectuality. We learned that these highly important individuals were technically termed Seniors. The frons and occiput of the aver- age Senior is so abnormally developed that we have never ceased to wonder how the lecturer could effect an entrance into the hall when this Class had assembled. Whenever we have asked them questions concerning points of law which puzzle us, we ha ' e invariably received the reply, " Fee first, please. " The missing link between the man Junior and monkey Senior is the Intermediate. Prof. Lombroso and Max Nordau, in their search for degenerates, could study this Class with profit. We are inclined to believe the artist, Oscar Wilde, when he .says that he found the material for his " Decay of Lying " in the encyclo- pedias, under the caption " Law Student. " 220 We have attended the sessions of the Moot Court and heard the counsel throw bouquets at one another in the way of " learned brother. " We have ascertained the precise meaning of " learned, " and have ceased to use the word. We have reached the Senate in time to hear it called to order, and before we have removed our overcoats have seen that august body adjourn. We have heard the Senior Senators talk of how much they chipped in, and then been allowed to smell the tell-tale pitcher, for with apologies to Tom .VIoore, — " ' ou may break, you may shatter the can if you will, But the scent o{ grozulcr- will cling ' round it still. Our early mental wrestlings with the law were awful to conte m- plate. When in the first lectures our preceptor referred to Lord Campbell ' s Statute, one unsophisticated Junior, whose ear was not attuned to catch the ultimate, promptly inquired if that were Lord Campbell ' s statue which fronts the Monument. " Redressinp- wrono-s " engendered thoughts of Anthony Comstock and the nude in art. " Artificial persons " called to mind Galatea and the German artisan, whose skill counterfeited the work of the Creator. Before we conceived the idea of entering upon the study of law, we were familiar with the fame of the Chief Judge of Baltimore. As it is the fault of immature intellects to associate magnitude with great- ness, and power with extent, upon our first entrance into the lecture- room we looked at the lofty ceiling, and wondered how in a space even of such ample proportions, the great Chief Judge could keep from hitting his head on the rafters. While awaiting the arrival of our lecturer, the door opened and a student entered. The newcomer was so slight of figure that his little overcoat wrapped around him in the wind like the clothes of a scare-crow around the bean-pole support, his walk was an excuse for a rule of action, his head was so heavy with legal learning that his little neck could not keep it erect. A student who had figured in a divorce suit communicated the identity of the newcomer to his neighbors, and in an instant it was known throughout the Class that we were in the presence of the far-famed Boy Chief Judge of the Supreme Bench of Baltimore City. We noticed at odd intervals in the Law School, a gentleman whose characteristics were a rotund Friar Tuck body, a Pickwickian fice, capped by a Seven Sutherland Sisters " before using " head; 221 the vvliole contrivance moving with a mode of locomotion pecuUar to a " Pinafore " sailor " supe. " We were told that he was the great John P. Poe, the monument of the bar, the personification of the law library, heir to all the law in existence, but that in him would fail the ultimate inheritable estate, for there was no hair-apparent. Among the members of the Faculty, there was pointed out to us a talented son of the South, who has enough degrees to his name to supply a thermometer factory for a season. After the late " unpleas- antness " he had left the beloved mint-julip and home-grown weed of the South, to become learned in the law, and to write a book which has heralded the fame and name of Major Richard Venable wherever lawyers are congregated. On the array of legal talent represented by the Faculty, we gaze with reverence and respect. We listen to the voices of men who have studied the laws of all ages, climes and nations. They furnish us fruits gleaned from Zoroaster and Confucius, knowledge received at the feet of Aristotle and Plato, words of wisdom caught from Solon and Lycurgus, pearls from the pool of the Magna Charta, marrowy bones from Bacon ' s " Organum, " flowers culled in their walks with Jefferson, Madison and Monroe, all offered up in plenteous splendor to those ready to receive. We look around on Senior and Inter- mediate, Moot Court and Library, Senate and Faculty, and from the depths of our hearts we are thankful that our lives have been cast in such pleasant places. 222 Doctors.

Each year, since its organization, has added to the reputation and pros- perity of this Dental School, until now its graduates in almost every part of the world are meeting with the success that ability will ever command. The past session was the most successful one ever held, and visiting dentists from all parts of the country have expressed themselves as being astonished and grati- fied at the ability shown by the students when operating upon patients in the infirmary. Forming one of the departments of one of the oldest universities in this country, its diploma is everywhere recognized and honored. The instruction in both operative and mechanical dentistry is as thorough as it is possible to make it, and embraces everything pertaining to dental art. The advantages which the general and oral surgical clinics, to which the dental students are admitted, as indeed to all the lectures the Universiiy affords, can- not be overestimated. The many thousands of patients annually treated in the University Hospital, and other sources, afford an abundance of material for the dental infirmary and laboratory practice, and the oral surgery clinics. xviii The Dental Infirmary and Laboratory building is one of the largest and most complete structures of the kind in the world. The Infirmary is lighted by sixty-five large windows, and is furnished with the latest improved operating chairs. The Dental Infirmary and Laboratory are open daily (except Sundays) during the entire year, for the reception of patients, and the practice for dental students has increased to such an extent that all the students during the past sessions have had an abundance of practical work, in both operative and pros- thetic dentistry. These means for practical instruction have already assumed such large proportions that the supply has been beyond the needs of the large classes in attendance during the past sessions. The exceedingly large number of patients for the extraction of teeth affords ample facilities for practical experience to every student. It has again become necessary to enlarge the dental building, making the Infirmary nearly one hundred feet in length, and a Laboratory eighty feet long by forty-three wide. The qualifications for admission and graduation are those adopted by the National Association of Dental Faculties and State Boards of Dental Examiners. Qualifications for Graduation. — The candidate must have attended three full courses of lectures of five months each, in different years at the REGULAR or Winter sessions in this institution. As equivalent to one of these, one course in any reputable Dental College will be accepted. Graduates of medi- cine can enter the Junior Class. The matriculant must have a good English education ; a diploma from a reputable literary institution, or other evidence of literary qualifications, will be received instead of a preliminary examination. All students, both Freshmen, Juniors and Seniors, have equal advantage in operative and mechanical dentistry in this institution throughout every session. Graduation in fledicine. — Graduates of the Dental Department of the University of Maryland are required to attend but one session at the University School of Medicine prior to presenting themselves as candidates for the degree of " Doctor of Medicine. " (See Catalogue.) The Regular or Winter Session will begin on the first day of October of each year, and will terminate in the following March. The Summer Session, for practical instruction, will commence in March, and continue until the regular session begins. Students in attendance on the Summer Session will have the advantage of all the daily Surgical and Medical clinics of the University. The fees for the Regular Session are |ioo, Demonstrators ' fees included ; Matriculation fee, $5 ; Diploma fee, for candidates for graduation, I30 ; Dis- secting ticket, |io. For Summer Session, no charge to those who attend the following Wmter Session. Board can be obtained at from $3.50 to $5.00 per week, according to quality. The University prize and a number of other prizes will be specified in the annual catalogue.
