He attended the Baltimore City College for three years, and left in his sophomore year to prepare for the Johns Hopkins University. He was graduated at the Johns Hopkins in 1896 with the degree of bachelor of arts. Mr. Binswanger next took up the study of the law. and was graduated at the University of Maryland, School of Law. in June. 1899. He has been very prominent in Republican politics in the Fifteenth ward, making numerous speeches for his party. Mr. Binswanger is quite a humorist, and his dialectic work is well known among the churches in and around Baltimore. While at the Baltimore City College he was the recipient of the Wight medal for proficiency in elocution, which is yearly given for the best declamatory rendition at a contest held by the two literary societies at the College — the Bancroft and the Carrollton. to the latter of which Mr. Binswanger belonged. To his energetic business ability and popularity, the success and efficiency of the ' 99 Year Book is greatly indebted. The Board of Editors. -5 24 Severn 1 eackle vv allis BY THOMAS S. BAER, ESQ., OF THE BALTIMORE BAR. EVERN TEACKLE WALLIS was, for many years prior to his death in 1894, the Provost of the University. The Bench and Bar assembled to do honor to his memorv and adopted a memorial minute, to be entered upon the records of the Supreme Bench, to this effect : ' ■ Rcsok ' cd. That in the deatli of Severn Teacklo Wallis. the Bar of Alar_vland has lost its brightest ornament, his friends, a clierished and revered companion, and the State, its noblest citizen. " Chief Justice Harlan, in responding for the Bench, in part, used this language : " The acknowledged leader of the l)ar has fallen. Equally pre-eminent as a lawyer, orator, patriot. Severn Teackle Wallis has passed away. But the influence of his life remains. He occupied so conspicuous a place at the bar and in the community ; he united, in his remarkable personality, so much that fills the mind with admiration and the heart with affection ; he was such a personification of lofty ideals ; he was so high- minded, so cultured, so versatile, so accomplished, so knightly, so nobie, so faithlul in the performance of duty, so courageous, so contemptuous of all that was ignoble, so unsparing of himself in any cause that he espoused; he did so much to raise the standards of professional and public life; he was so ready to enlist his talents when- ever and wherever he believed they would make for right; he was so true to his friends, so attractive in his social qualities, that he has long been justly regarded as illustrating the highest type of our profession, a model as well as an inspiration to all who have known him, and to those who shall come after him. " These proceedings, together with addresses made l)y mcmljers of the bar and the response from Chief Justice Robinson, of the Court of Appeals, will be found in Volume yy of the Maryland Reports. At the time of his death the managers or directors of the many associations and institutions, educational, charitable and semi-political, with which iie was connected, met and adopted resolutions or minutes of similar import, to be entered upon their records. He, of whom this superlative eulogy could be spoken, must, indeed, have been a man among men. 25 When the writer was asked to contribute something to this pnbHcation, it occurred to him that nothing- couki lie more appropriate than to call the attention of the students of the l niversity to some of those traits of character in the one who was so long its head, which could cause such universal encomiums. It is not the purpose of this article to add — if that were possible — to the unstinted praise, spoken and written wh.en he died, but to point t)Ut some of the characteristics upon which that praise was based. jNlr. W ' allis was seventy-seven years old at the time of his death. He had reached, indeed, for some years had gone beyond, the age when the present and the things of the present, the future, and its developments in the realms of art and science and government are the things that engage the mind. (. )rdinarily, the thoughts of one, in the decline of life, dwell more in the past than in the activities of the present or the expectations of the future ; the gaze is upon what has been, rather than upon what may be done. In reading eulogies of i ir. Wallis one is struck, at once, with tlie absence of any intimation even that he had ceased, by reason of his age or infirmities, to be a present, active, potential ])ersonality. The language is " the bar has lost its brightest ornament, " n( t one who " had been its brightest ornament " ; the State, " its noblest citizen, " not one who " liad been its noblest citizen. " ' Jdie loss expressed is a present liereavement ; his leadership at the bar passes forever only at the time of his death ; the man, whom the people of the State nozv recognize as its noblest citizen, drops into his grave. It can be truly said of him that he never grew old. No one thought of him as old. His health was always frail, and in his later years his form was some- what bent. et even his physical appearance at the close of his life did not convey the idea of age or decrepitude. r)Ut his mind to the very last was as alert, as vigorous, as _ outhful, as it was when in the maturity of his ])hysical i)owcrs he had found the lM)untain of )nt]i for which I ' once de Leon souglit in vam : not one, nideed, that would sa ' e him from the end apjioinled unto all men, but which kv )[ him a man, in all the fullness of his powers until the end came, lie not only kejit at the work which the practice of his ])rofession entailed; many others do ihat. and yet grow old both mentally and physically: but his interest in and active effort to promote every movement that tended to elevate the standard of his profession to render more just and speedy and certain the dis]iensation of justice, to diffuse knowledge, to encourage art. to expose and drive out corruption from high places, to purif - jjolitics. to develop a citizenship founded uixm worth and righteousness, never flagged. And because of this be continticd to form new friendshi])s. . s the com- 26 panions of his youth passed away, he drew around him from time to time, men younger than himself. He inspired them with his lofty ideals and - his invincible hope of better things, ' " and was kept young himself by the tribute of their enthusiastic and unseltish devotion. The friends, whom the minute spoke of as having lost " a cherished and revered companion, " were noi the few remaining white-haired men who had begun the work of life with him, but those of all ages, some of them the children and grandchildren of his youthful companions, whom he admitted to an intimacy, rendered delightful by his brilliant conversation and generous hospitality. He never declined to participate in any measure of reform, in any agency for its accomplishment, because he would himself derive no benefit personally from it. In the spring of 1804, while he was sick in bed, only a few weeks before his death, he dictated to his stenographer a letter of great force and power, addressed to the writer of this article, then a member of the House of Delegates, in advocacy of a bill pending in the Legislature, to allow either party to a suit in equity, the right to have the testimony in the case taken orally in Court. He, doubtless, knew full well when he dictated the letter that he never would again appear in Court, but he ungrudgingly gave a portion of his little remaining-strength to the accomplishment of this remedial legislation. It was this constant touch with the present and its activities, this keeping of his face, lighted with faith and hope toward the future with its promises, that, to the mind of the writer, has always seemed one of his most char- acteristic traits. Mr. Wallis was noted for his brilliant wit. and it has been frequently regretted that the many witty remarks made by him in conversation, in h ' s arguments in Court, his public addresses and political speeches, which will soon pass from the memories of those who now repeat them, could not be gathered together and put in some permanent form. It may l)e interesting to give several of these, simply as examples of this rare power, possessed bv him in so eminent a decree Shortly after his return from his imprisonment for fourteen months in I ' ort Warren, in P.oston Harbor, at the outbreak of the Civil War. he was arguing a case in the Superior Court before Judge Martin. The latter was an able Judge, but a very austere and eccentric man. He was an intense supporter of the CTOvernment in its war with the South. Mr. Wallis, who had been largely instrumental in the elevation of Judge Martin to the Bench, told the writer of this article that, when he returned from Fort Warren. Judge Martin seemed at first to hesitate whether he should recognize him 27 at all, but tinall - t ave him the most distant bow. as if anything more would compromise the Judge ' s reputation for loyalty It was before this Judge that the argument was being made. A decision of Lord Eldon had been cpioted by the counsel opposed to Mr. Wallis, which the latter admitted was acrainst him, ])ut said it stood alcjue, and was at variance with the current of authority, both in England and in diis country. Mr. Wallis added that it was an example, not without a parallel, of how a great Judge could sometimes go very far wrong. He then said : " One of the most remarkable instances of this is the opinion of Judge Story, in a case where a man was convicted of piracy and sentenced to be hung, that he could not grant a new trial, because the Constitution said that a man should not be placed twice in jeopardy of his life. " Mr. Wallis then added, as with a sudden gesture he caught the eye of the Judge, wdiile his own eyes flashed fire : " It seems to me, if ' our Honor please, that our friends in that part of the country, from which Judge Story comes, have a high regard for the Constitution when it enables them to hang somebody. " The turn was so sudden and unexpected that it was a moment before the point was appreciated by those present, while the face of the Judge was a study to behold. In a political speech Mr. Wallis was discussing the qualifications of a candidate for the sherifiFalt} ' , on the ticket which he was opposing. This ii;entleman kept a hotel called the Niagara House, and the records of the Court showed that he had ])een several times indicted for selling liquor on Sunday. Mr. Wallis pointed out that, as the Sherifif ' s duty was to execute ihc law against such offenders, whatever might be the candidate ' s qualifi- cations for other ])ositi()ns, he should not be elected to the one for which he was nominated. " I am afraid, " said lie, " that in dealing with such violat.ons of the law he would have cataracts on his eyes. " He convulsed tlie Supreriie Court of the Ignited States in a case where the proceeding was to set aside a conveyance as having been made in fraud of creditors. It aj ijieared from the testimony that on the day before the deed was made the grantor and grantee had taken a long buggy ride together, and the opposing cotmsel in his argument had dwelt at length upon this fact as showing fraud. Air. Wallis said that, at first he had been at a loss to catch the drift of the argument, when it suddenl dawned upon him that the point was that " a buggy is a fraudulent conveyance. " There is ])rol)al)ly nothing in the literature of wit that excels the following: Air. Wallis was delivering the oration at the commencement (la - of the Johns Jlo|)kins I ' niversit . The exercises were being held in the Academy of Music on Howard street. A season of grand opera was on there, and a 28 matinee presenting Faust was billed for the afternoon. The proceedings, before Air. Wallis commenced his address, had been protracted, and before he had finished, it became necessary to surrender the stage for the opera, and to ask him to luring his remarks to a close. He continued for a few moments in a loftv strain, as if he did not intend to heed the admonition, then suddenly stopped, and said : " I am reminded by a message, of a motto which I trust may illustrate the destiny of this great institution. Opera, non verba. " The most conspicuous trait in the character of Mr. Wallis was his high sense of public duty. It was the constraining motive of his life. He never held public position, and yet, in the opinion of those most competent to judge, lie was the State ' s " noblest citizen. " At one time in his life he undoubtedly had political aspirations, hope of filling some high place with benefit to his country and credit to himself. It was undoubtedly owing to his constant refusal to sacrifice principle to expediency, to acquiesce in questionable methods in political management, to his equally constant demand for better men in office, better methods in politics, that his aspirations were not realized. But this did not in the least deter him from taking a leading part in every movement which had for its object the improvement of the public service and the elimination of fraud and corruption from politics and legislation. A great part of the services given by him in these respects was long after there was any hope of reward except in the consciousness of duty faithfully performed. Ambitions which he had once cherished had long since been laid aside, yet his time, his presence, his means, his powers of denunciation of evil, his persuasive eloquence, his pen, when by reason of debility his tongue was silent, were to the very day of his death placed at the service of every cause that had for its object the promotion of good government. Plutarch says of Aristides that " in all the vicissitudes of public affairs, the constancv he showed was admirable, not being elated with honors and demeaning himself tranquilly in adversity ; holding the opinion that he ought to ofifer himself to the service of his country without mercenary views and irrespectively of any reward not only of riches, but even of glory itself. Hence, it came probably that at the recital of these verses of Eschylus in the theatre, relating to Amphiaraus, " ' For not at seeming just but being so he aims; and from his depth of soul below Harvests of wise and prudent counsels grow, ' the eyes of all the spectators turned on Aristides. as if this virtue in an especial manner belonged to him. " And so it was because, of all the men of his generation in Maryland, Mr. 29 W ' allis, in his thouj iit acLion, was ni( si constant to the sentiment cx])resse(l bv Montaiq ' ne, his favorite author, that " virtue owns nothing to lie hers Init what is done l)y herself and for herself alone, " that, in his death the people saw the rave i;:close its noblest citizen. 30 General Athletic Association, « Officers.

Several attempts were made to remedy this defect, but none of them met with success, because the organizers proceeded upon a wrong hypothesis, failing to devise a plan w liich would allow an equitable division of authority between the three departments. It was always supposed that it would be impossible to get support from the various faculties unless each had a representative on the governing board of the Association ; so a point was made to have such representation, with the result that the board, of which three members were professors, was always unwieldy and of absolutely no service in assisting the students. One of the most natural, and at the same time unfortunate, consequences of this condition of affairs was that there was no body to represent the teams when a request was made for money, and each manager struck out to collect fur himself, taking no thought of the welfare of the other teams. The football and baseball managers corralled everything in sight during their respective seasons, and each had a tale of woe to relate about the other, while the track and hockey teams knocked at both. With half an eye it can be seen that this condition of affairs would cause trouble, as it did. The faculties never received any accounting of the money they (Contributed, and became disgusted with the criminations and recrimina- tions of the managers. The students l)ecame weary, because they were constantly being called upon to he!]) tlie ' ari()us teams, receiving nothing in return. iMually. matters arrived at a pass recpiiring immediate action to ])revent our athletics from going up in tlie air ])y tlie internal-dissensions route. A consultation was held, and the determination arrived at, that one more attemjjt would be made to clear the air of liarsh discord before cpiitting in disgust. Accordingly, a call was issued, in the form prescribed by the vanished but much-cherished constitution of the old Association. In resi)onse thereto, assembled a small but enthusiastic body of choice spirits, who set their gigantic 34 intellects to work on the delicate problem of reorganization. That the crijwd was Anglo-Saxon was shown by its adherence to precedent, for in spite of past experience an effort was made to revive all of the ancient constitnticjn, instead of making a new one. Inspired by this landaljle Ijut visionary ol)ject, those present appointed new members on the old committees, elected officers and adjourned around the corner. About seven minutes after the adjourn- ment it began to dawn upon the crowd that the meeting had been a waste of time, and it was decided to issue another call. So said, so done, and again we met to take counsel one with another as to the best way of keeping our sports from departing this life via impecuniousness. The constitution submitted was modeled, as far as local conditions would admit, upon those of the other large universities. A number of individual peculiarities with which our school is blessed prevented us from following very closely in the footsteps of our sister universities, but the general idea was preserved. We have the usual collection of officers, all students, some more or less ornamental, some extremely useful, if they do the work mapped out for them. Then comes the great feature of the new rules — the Financial Committee, bless their hearts ! When the section relating to the governing board was first read out, it contained the old bugaboo of an executive committee consisting of the three deans, a student from each department, and an alumnus. This committee was to do stunts in bossing everything, but its principal function was to keep a weather eye on the coin — about the same duty it was supposed to perform under the old regime. As the Executive Committee was never known to meet — even with disappointment — no earthly object covdd be accomplished by its rehabilitation; so a meml er, yclept Whittaker, arose in his might and laid down the hypothesis that if some- thing were not done, we might as well hold an auction of the athletic paraphernalia on hand and spend the proceeds in riotous living. Investi- gation disclosed the fact that the proposition was in the main correct. though marred by irrelevant details. Numerous sciiemes were then advanced as to the best way of filling the aching void, tiie sum of them all being a Financial Committee of live members, consisting of a student from each department, a member of one of the faculties and an alumnus. The committee seems to be the solution of all our perplexities, as it has inspired confidence in the faculties and students, is easily assembled and gives the desired represent- ation, without which there can be no taxation. Judge Harlan, the faculty member, has shown his confidence in the new order of things b}- making a handsome preliminary contribution on the part of the Law faculty. Briefly, the committee is to pass upon all accounts, no money being paid 35 out without its sanction ; it certifies the team elections of captain and manager, and unless it approves the result a new election must he held ; it controls the policy of the University ' s athletics, having the power to say which teams shall he played and which shall not. Its coercive power lies in the fact that if a manager or his team becomes obstreperous, he gets no cash, which is rather an effective argument. 36 OS 00 OS K-1 PQ H O O l-H o t l :i) ON OS I CO « a o u •V-l o C 2 " 5 J I— ! a w C f ' " to J to « « 3 o-| _- cq J . ti to o Of CT! 2i ra ' ' ; tin % 5 ;::; t— ' J U 1-} t-H Q ti o (— 1 O o C c« CO " a . b O w H P t2 W g w ■ H - — G " -t- 3 ; t +-• -r •4 w N w D Oi c i o 3 ci 00 a u 1— t a H N S CD - W j C cq A c c i O Q r e 53 m § ■t: a: a O 39 Football Scores.

They were not disap- pointed, for the team of 98 had an individual composition far ahead of any team heretofore put out l)y the ' Varsity. There was the advantage of having old players on the team who were well-trained men, and also certain new men from other colleges, who had already made enviable reputations on the grid-iron. Among- the men who had played on the " A arsity previous to ' 98 there were Lewis, Cathell, Frosher and Captain P.arrow. The new men were such men as " Father " ' hittaker of North Carolina, and to his splendid coaching is due the success the team achieved. Green, from North Carolina, played a Ijrilliant game at one end, and Walker on the other was not far behind him. Dew, as guard, did not find his match in any game; his line-bucking was a wonder. The first game played was with Rock Hill College, and it resulted in a score of 30 to o in favor of the ' Varsity. Thus tlie team went through the season, with only two defeats, and with a record of seven games played — five won and two lost — and points scored against them being but twelve. The points they scored amounted to sixty-three. The two most important games of the season were with University of Mrginia and Maryland Athletic Club. The game with the Universitv of Virginia. " the champions of the South, " as one of the closest games ever played, and the Champions scored but one touchdown against Maryland, and that was in the last three minutes of plav. The game closed with the ball on A ' irginia ' s five-yard line ; the ball had been steadily forced down the field for a touchdown, but time was called, and Maryland was forced to stop, with her chances of a touchdown lost. The eame with the Maryland Athletic Club was of the greatest interest, especiallv in local sporting circles. Both reams were in the best of condition, 41 iuul iR ' iUicr seemed tu iiave llie adNaiilas e. J he t;aine was lo he [)hiyetl t)ii Thanksgiving, and Ixith teams and hackers on each side were confident of victory. However, when tlie chiy for the game arri ' ed there was a foot of snow on the grounds, and consequently the game liad to he postponed. This was a great disappointment to all concerned, as the teams always broke training after Thanksgiving. But so anxious were the " X ' arsity boys to defeat Al. A. C. that every man ke])t in training, and Captain Barrow did n.ot have the slightest trouble to keep the men at work. The game had been postponed two weeks, but it seemed to he fated, and on the day for the game a heavy rain was falling ; yet the managers decided to play the game. It was a mud bath from start to finish, and after a few minutes ' playing not a man on either team could lie recognized, so covered with mud were the plavers. The ' A ' arsitv, though playing against heavy odds, won the game, and thus decided the Afaryland championship for " gS. 1die team will lose but few plavers in " 99. and a victorious season is to lie kx ked forward to by everyone. 42 BASEBALL.

( )ur history in this respect has been somewhat like Ex- President Cleveland ' s married life- — " one grand, sweet song. " Starting with poor prospects and in the face of opposition from the inevitable croakers, we have progressed until at present we arc a big dog with a brass tag and a penchant for chewing up things in the Southland, whither we go each year at the close of the Medical School. l ' " rom old Virginia ' s mountains, to Georgia ' s tarry pines, where Carolina ' s whisky conducive is to fines, from many an ancient college, from many a high-born prep., they called for us to play them, and their laurels off we swept. We do not claim to be the best that ever came out of the cave, nor do we claim to be second best ; but we don ' t go much further than that. Last season we had sundry troubles. Harry Wilms was manager, and his proverbial luck with the weather was right on deck, wdiereby the greater portion of the games had to be canceled, causing us to fall short just so many victories. Again, the umpires were " ag ' in us. " Xot a single blessed mistake was made in our favor, wdiile those of wdiich our opponents received the benefit were more than you will ordinarily see in the life of the repentant villain of a society novel. Nine men cannot play a.gainst ten, a proposition we can verify by the examples of past bitter experience. Such was the case in games with j ' ordham and Richmond. Idlings were coming our way so fast that we couldn ' t dodge ' em, when the umpire thought he would show the local ladies wdiat a dear, sweet boy he was, and began to find runs in " fouls, " " safes " in everything. Our expostulations were explicit, forcible, but useless, and a brand was saved from the burning for the home teams. Such doings are a vexation of the spirit, but what can you do ? for being far away from home and mother, it is a case of play or go without the guarantee, and, while we seldom consider that vulgar detail, filthy lucre, w e are not trained for long- distance walking events. 47 (3ur record during the season of ' 98 was not as clear as it might have been, for reasons explained ; but that of " 99 up to the present writing can be contem- plated with much joy. Our Southern trip was a great success, as everything was cleaned up except Trinit}-. where a defeat came bounding along because half the team was left in Richmond, and Georgetown and ' irginia, the acknowledged champions of the South and the United States. X ' irginia got a run for her money, but at Georgetown the umpire bugaboo bobbed up again, and a fair foul did the work, with the consequence that we were defeated by a score of 15 to 14, after one of the closest games the champions played during the entire season. West ' irginia came here in the pride of her mountain strength, but she had a long, sad story of the calibre of 19 to 6 to tell after all was over. Prospects for the University of Maryland becoming a great baseball centre are continually brightening and the material being developed for next year ' s team promises great things for the future. 48 Polo. rWILL tell you how it happened : After fighting with the management of an ice rink for the whole of one season, the ' Varsity athletes had a surprise this winter, and not an agrce- ahle one at that. The management of the rink tore up the pipes and laid a maple fioor that cost them $2,433.33 1 3, and thereby lost thousands more. In this, the old Hockey League was disagreeably surprised by the conversion . of the rink from a centre of true winter sport to a nursery. Well, so much for the surprise to the League. Manager Emerson (the man of soda), who is a man of strictly moral character, besides being a church member in good and regular standing, did not see the influence that hockey had exerted over the athletic fraternity of the good city of Baltimore. However, the University of Maryland was invited because of her record as a twice-hockey champion to enter its team for the Polo League race. It was understood that the Maryland Athletic Club would enter its aggregation, also the Maryland Hockey Club, Northampton Hockey Club, and Walbrook Athletic Club. But lo and behold ! the teams that made up the League were the University of Maryland, Druid Athletic and Druid Outing Clubs. Balti- more City College and Baltimore Medical College. Talk about St. Bernards among a litter of pups ! Sad to relate, the pups took right hold of the game, and by the latter part of the season they played a rattling good game. Well, we accepted the invitation of the management of the rink, and entered a team captained by Milton Whitehurst, managed by W. H. Houston and composed of Mick Whitehurst, first rush; Pond, second rush; Pat Whitehurst, centre; Willet (der grosse), halfback; Clipper, goal ; with Sheely and Hechheimer, substitutes. The first game was with the All-Baltimore team of professional " has- beens, " in which we won— 8 to o. This showed by the ready wit (long passes) and repartee (well-shot goals) that the drinks (soda) were on Manager Emerson, as the latter thought that we were outclassed, and bet us unlimited soda (which we limited to two small glasses) that we would loose. 49 The second game was with the City College, which we won hy long passes and team play ; the score was 4 to o. The third game, which was with the Baltimore Medical College, we won — 5 to o. After these victories the game was hecoming very uninteresting to our players, who were in the hahit of having to fight just a little for their successes, and not have teams lay down to them without fighting. This was the cause of our first defeat, together with the fact that the other teams worked like Trojans, and were playing a decidedly hetter game. So Druid ( )uting Cluh outgeneraled and defeated us — 2 to o. Pond seemed asleep ; and, in fact, the whole aggregation seemed dopey. Long passes were worked successfully hy the other side, hut not hy us. The team now awoke to the fact that they had to play polo to keep in the push, so they practiced harder, and developed a better team hy placing Pond at centre, and Pat taking his place at second rush. The next and last game (with the Druid Athletic Club) was the most interesting one to rooters and to the manager ; not because we won (2 to i ) in a close game (in which the deciding score was only shot after an extra half of ten minutes), hut the interesting part was a little " scrap, " in which a small amount of bitterness was shown by the losing team. The corpulent form of the rink manager separated the belligerents. There was also a disinclination of certain parties to come in contact, actively speaking, with the ' Varsity rooters, who were swarming from all parts of the rink. The latter arrived too late — the afifair had been settled. This was our last appearance in the polo arena. We were tie for first honors, and as the men were overworked, with two graduation-men on the team and very few men in the I " ni versify from whom to draw, the manage- ment thought that the time was ripe to withdraw from the League, in vvhicli we were expected to win every game. We received no credit for the good work done. Acknowledging with thanks the help of the subs, and well- wishers, we conclude the history of the only polo team the University of Maryland ever possessed, hoping for an ice fioor at the rink in the winter of 99 and 1900. 50 Tfrack Tfeam • TytT E have all heard that the darkest hour is just V A y l fo the dawn, and relying on this we are able to draw some small comfort from the Stygian darkness that has enveloped the track team for the past twelvemonth. Verily, verily, its talents have been hidden away in a napkin or safe deposit and trust company, and the interest drawn thereby is nil. Would ' st know the cause? Listen, then, I will a tale unfold, or rather a napkin. Some people would tell you that this lamentable state of affairs is due to the lack of suitable training facilities ; others, again, that the demands made on the men ' s time by their studies are so great that they have no time in which to train for track work ; still others might perchance attribute the lethargy to a lack of moral and financial support ; but " gadzooks " ! what boots these explanations that do not explain. Now, in order to fully understand my version of the matter, let us hark back a few aeons and consider the conduct of two of the greatest exponents of track athletics. One of them was Mercury, alias Hermes, son of old man Jupiter. He, like most thoroughbreds wlio travel under an alias, was crooked. Well, he went in for track athletics and by fair means or fowl (joke on his winged feet ) took the first prizes in all meets, scratch or handicap, and proved himself such a tricky and slippery customer that Apollo and Argus and all the rest of the push got dead sore on him and tried to have him disqualified. The other party of whom I spoke was Hippomenes. Everyone remembers the way he won the race for life from Atalanta by pelting her with a Klondike orchard in the shape of gold apples. There was quite a kick raised at the time, if mv memory serves me. Aphrodite having lost a wad of long green on the race, accused " Attie " of 51 selling- the race, and also accused ' " Attie " of l)eing a fast young woman. " Attie " " denietl all this, but adniilted that she and " Hip " were sweet on each other. This made " ' Aphie " ' mad. and she changed the pair into lions, and they do sav that " Hip " and " Attie " went around looking for blood. So you see that even in the time of Mythology track athletics were crooked, and they haven ' t improved nuKdi at the time of writing. We could cite numerous recent instances in support of this statement, but prefer to draw our illustrations from auld lang syne to prevent law-suits. Now, the University of Maryland team started out with the commendable desire to elevate the stage — I mean track — Intt finding their task Herculean, and compared to it their strength as of pigmies, they desisted and haven ' t done anything since. However, the team has taken P. S for that tired feeling, and is now training for the relay races to be given l)y the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia. " Here ' s luck to ' em ! " Drink heartily. 52 S. ?.;:;, Hockey. HE hockey team this year only played two games, and obtained very little practice, as there was no rink. We must perforce wait for freezes and cuss during thaws, yet we wandered away to Philadelphia to play during the latter part of January, and the Quaker City Hockey Team brought back our scattered sense by pouring the oil on us to the tune of 8 to o ; but we gritted our teeth and made faces at them to our heart ' s content. The next evening after a very rough game we took one from the Philadelphia Dental College team by a score of 3 to i. The team was composed of Pat Whitehurst, centre ; Pond, right forward ; Poe, left forward; -Mickey " Whitehurst (captain), rover; Rothstein, cover point ; Willet, point ; Clipper, goal, and Sumner, substitute. The boys put up a good game the first night against the Quakers. The score at the end of the first half was o to o ; but. sad to relate, eight goals were scored by Willett, of the Quaker City team, in the second half, our score remaining as we began— o. Willett. of the Quaker City team, is the best shooter in the country. He stands in a class by himself, and, of course, his playing was brilliant against our unpracticed men. However, the Philadelphia Dental College suffered defeat at our hands by a score of 3 to i, and it was the roughest, toughtest, hottest game that vas ever played on the cold, cold ice. The Philadelphia Dental College men went into the game, as they supposed, to win from preparatory school boys, but they ran up against a snag. Their left forward (Richie) committed several assaults, and was at last ordered out of the game. If it had not been for this horse play, the score would have been even larger in our favor. If the Ice Rink is opened during the winter of 99 and 1900, we will develop the greatest team that has ever been produced in the South (as usual). 53 Same Here.

T i L I ' niversity of Maryland Glee, Banjo and Mandolin Clnl)s marked their first year of existenee on Octoljer 15, when a meeting was ealled by Mr. T. D. Gilbert, of the senior class in medicine. Jdiis had been his pet idea ever since he entered college, but had never taken tangible shape until last year. .Vctive work was begun, leaders of the respective clul)s secured, and regular reheansals instituted. Everything moved along smoothly after aiTimmense amount of energy and work on the part of the officers. Our musical success as an organization commenced to l)ring our University into a distinct and new field, as compared with its professional and athletic standing. (Jur first concert was held at Laurel. Maryland, on December 15, and we had a pleasant stay and a good crowd, although the " hall was cold. " Then, on Deceml er 20. came the Fdlicott City trip on a special car over the new route. The audience was very appreciative, the programme a good one, and on its completion everyone joined in a dance. The rain and mud and the distance to the hall (which was an excellent one, with a seating capacity of five hundred) were the disadvantages of this concert. Then came our first Baltimore concert, held on New Year ' s night at Y. M. C. A. hall. This date was awarded the University after a consideration of propositions from many noted organizations. The night was perfect, our audience very large and exceedingly enthusiastic, while the whole performance passed off flaw- lessly. The Washington concert was just what everyone desired. On the 19th our final concert was held at Lehmann ' s Hall. Baltimore ' s best musical and society people were present. The boys all looked well, behaved like heroes, and voices and fingers all seemed intent on securing harmonic sounds, although a little occasional rag-time and humorous merriment, with some " intentional breaks, " were indulged in. Everyone took prizes, all numbers were hits, some singles, others liome runs. 75 The season closed without the necessity of requesting- individual or collective financial assistance from the faculties, and with our numerous expenses paid and money to start next year. To whom credit is due, let credit he given, and we therefore include every officer and memlier of the organization. Poor Boy. Trespass or trover shall I bring Against the ihievisii maiden fair.

Shecut, South Carohna Corresponding Secretary. i I I HE Young Men ' s Christian Association of the University of Maryland ls was organized in December, 1894, with thirty charter members, twenty ■ active and ten associate members. Its membership gradually increased during the remaining three months of the school year, and when the annual election of officers took place in March, 1895, its membership numbered thirty- iive. Mr. Frank Keating, of Maryland, was its first president, and at the expiration of his term of office, Mr. James Webster, of Scotland, was chosen as his successor for another year. The Association held regular Sunday afternoon devotional meetings during the first three months of 1895, and much interest was manifested in the organization. At the beginning of the school session of 1895 and 1896 the work was again revived with renewed energy, the Association holding its regular monthly and Sunday meetings at No. 22 South Greene street, xA ' hich were well attended. The room was open at all hours during the day, and students often resorted thither to enjoy social talks or read. This social feature brought the men nearer to each other, and promoted Christian fellowship. At the Sunday afternoon meetings from twenty to thirty attended. The meetings were generally conducted by some member of the Association, and many who were heretofore unable to testify for Christ were stimulated to active work. In March. 1896, Mr. Frank Stoney, of New York, was elected president of the Association for the school term of 1896 and 1897. Mr. Stoney not having returned, Mr. R. H. 77 I lo( ' iinnis, of Xortli Carolina, was elected president for the year 1896-97. At the conclusion of Air. McCiinnis ' term, Mr. M. L. Martin, of Texas, was elected in his place. Mr. Martin not returning- to the I ' niversit} ' in the fall. Mr. W. I ' " . Skilhnan was elected to fill the vacancy. The faculty of the l ' niversit ' have granted the Association a ])ermanent iiall in the college building- on the right of the south entrance, d ' his room has been nicely fnrnishe l with comfortal)le chairs, tables, reading material, library, and various games. It is the purpose of the Association to make it a pleasure and a profit to students to visit this room. The University library is in this room, and all students have access to the same.

What words to conjure with ; what a field for imaghia- IIq tion ! We can see in Rome, the mistress of the vorld, the Senate m all its pristine glory, its dignity heightened, rejoicing in the eloquence of a Cicero. Then we have the Senate of the " Old Line State, " assembled in all its splendor, busily engaged in breathing patriotism and " plugging corpora- tions. I hesitate — but then, last, l)ut not least, we have " Our Senate " of the University of Alaryland, School of Law. Its members are a legion. Of their quality, we can l)ut say : Greece may have her Demosthenes, Massachusetts her Webster ; but laryland has her Titsworth. It would be more than a pleasure to extol the virtues of all our members, but neither space nor time wmU permit. In writing his graduating thesis, the author has greatly developed the analytical sections of his gray matter ( ?). Accordingly, he has deduced that all the members of the Senate belong to one of four groups — politicians, members of the " " third ' " house, stump orators, and claim agents. Alas ! no embryo statesmen appear. In each group, the " principal " w ill ])e recognized. The virtues of the others will sufifer no disparagement, for in the end the first sliall be last and the last shall be first. Moreover, to take a ty[)e illustrative of the jxjlitician. we must have a good politician ; and a good politician necessaril " implies a successftil one. Who has been, and is. more successful than the Senator from the State where length of body is synonvmous with breadth and depth of mind, and which is capable of producing garments of the fiery hue that even ri al the brilliancy of the midday sun. We have no difficulty in recognizing " Senator " Armstrong. " I was born with greatness ; I ' ve honour, titles, power, here witliin. " The word statesman has had two definitions accorded it : The first, that he is merely a dead politician : the second, that he is a successful politician, l)road-minded and with foresight. I ' Vom either aspect, to be a statesman you must first l)e a pf)litician. The masterful manner in which our " principal 80 case " handled the fortunes of the successful candidate for the class presi- dency, triumphing over unthought-of difificulties, dealing destruction and disaster to his opponents, marks him as the peer of any politician. He may not be a statesman, but he has the first essential — he is a successful politician. ' e come next to the group, the members of the " third " house. A difficulty confronts us when we try to select the most gifted member of that powerful body. Not one, but two, stand above all others, and to their importunities all must yield — Senators Kines and Maloy. The one may be of short stature, the other long of hair ; but these embellishments are not deter- rents to the exercise of those persuasive arts that are second only to those used by a " ' Gene " Higgins, or a " Bill " Thompson. Captivating and plausible, a future awaits them, circumscribed only Ijy what a lachiavelli or a Talleyrand have achieved. We have no difficult v in the selection of the one who is pre-eminent in the most numerous group — the stump orator. The name suggests itself. Think of the blue-grass country of Pimlico racetrack, of jack pots, full houses and bluffs, of those who quaff but sparingly of that deleterious fluid " a([ua " — and you have the name of Tits worth. The gifted Senator is best described in the paraphrased refrain that lingers in our ear : " Our orator beyond compare. " One stroke with his gleaming scimitar of righteousness fells the most subtle constitutional argument. An arrow, drawn from his quiver of earnestness, pierces the finest logic obtained from tlie realm of reason. " While words of learned length, and thund ' ring sound, Amaz ' d the gazing rustics rang ' d around : And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew That one small head should carry all he knew. " The last group is before us. It is unique : it contains but one member. Senator Morfit is somewhat of an anomaly. ' e were at a loss where to place him, until the happy thought came that we could give him his just distinction, a group to himself — the claim agent. It is well known that the most successful of these are ex-members of the Federal House and Senate. We have no doubt that the experience that this Senate has gained in the collecting line will be a material benefit to him in future life. The diligence and zeal with which he has urged his claim for reimbursement, not once, not twice, but thrice, before our indifferent Senate, cannot but fail to recommend him to those who desire an energetic " claim-pusher. " Having briefly sketched the leading members, we turn next to the work accomplished by this august body. For the most part, the Senators are 8i radical i)iU progressive in their views; this is but general, as the jewel of consistenc)- shines bright with ])ut few. We have decided that it is the better policy of the Government to retain tlie L ' hilippines, yet at another meeting we have proclaimed our continued adherence to the so-called " Monroe doctrine. " Cuba has had our full sympathy ; Dewey and Schley have received our vote of congratulations ; we were thankful that the Oregon arrived in due time ; yet we were not in favor of liaving the Nicaragua canal launched. The proposal of an alliance with England was received with scorn ; we were so amused at its suggestion that a resolution to increase our standing army to ' .wo hundred thou.sand men carried the dav. The conservatives scored signal iclories when tlie l)ill assailing the Federal judiciary was defeated. The ])roposition to enact an income tax was laid on the table. The " crime of ' jt, " has been glowingly discussed and tlie gold standard adopted. Frobablv our most enthusiastic meeting occurred wlien v;e denounced trusts and monopolies and passed a law providing for their restraint and control. Such has been the work of the Senate, yet the Government still exists ; the tides rise and fall ; the earth continues to revolve : the sun dailv and sets, and one more .step has l)een made to complete the cycle of Cathav. The session of the rejuvenated Senate of Eighteen Hundred and Ninetv-Xine is o ' er. " But there are deeds which should not pass away, And names that must not witlier. thougli tlie earth Forgets her empires with a just decay. The enslavers and t!ie enslaved, their death and birth.

Some were wealthy, and some were healthy, And some were of great renown. She jollied them all — Both great and small ; And then she " trun ' em down.

I ' ve got to take home to his bed ; tra la ! A room-mate with wheels in his head, tra la ! And his address he wears on a tag. Refrain : And that ' s what I mean when I rise to exclaim : A wild jag will make its possessor feel tame. A Rathskellerite, he Goes there every night, he Loads up till he don ' t know his name. 91 Wc Know. There ' s a great talker named Poe. Who giveth no other a show ; He can chin by the day. Never granting a stay, Until von don ' t know what you know. Bully for Her! There was once a gallant suitor Who instituted suit. For the hand of an heiress rich, Her goodly coin to boot. But the maiden ' s pa he busted. She was no longer fruit; But courting went herself, and brought A breach of promise suit. I. o. u. Single bills are as good as notes. So all the law books plainly say But as my notes won ' t cancel bills. I can ' t figure out that way. 92 Spasm L There was a young man of knowing mould. Whose parents, at least, seemed to think, so I ' m told. And they pondered them long, to know what to do With this smooth-faced youth, and his brain like few. As our loving parents now often decide What we shall do before we have tried. So happened it here, and his pa and ma Decided that this youth should take up the law. So with thirty-nine " greens " in his pocket he went Down to the office of " Chancellor " Kent. Who gave him a ticket, upon which was said That four months of learning was due for his head. One would think tiiat. relieved of so many " greens. " He ' d be somewhat less verdant in spite of his teens. But. kind-hearted reader, ' tis not always the color That makes the green youth the brighter or duller. 93 spasm II, And he pranced into class on the opening day With the confident air of a young colt at play. Oh ! wonderful place that nice Law School. Where in two months a lawyer ' s made out of a fool — At least, so thought our young friend, the " fresh, " When he first stuck his tender gills into the mesh. Nor wot, like the poov little fish in a net. That he soon would be lloundering out of the " wet. " When all kinds of Domestic Relations he knew. He thought he ' d just teach his poor family a " few. " Bridget threatened to leave ere her month had eN])ired : Mamma bullied and pleaded until she was tired. When our spring of the law tried his arguments fair. She lodged a stray flat-iron against his front hair ; . nd when he came to. with a buzz in his hearl. And ihey gathered In ' m up and juU him to bed. Domestics may be very clever, " said he. i)Ut the ai)plication ' s not all that it ' s cracked up to be ; At least in the way it was argued with me. " Real Property excited in him not a fear. But how he " woke u ) " when he went against Baer ! When he saw how he " llimked. " he stood thert ' ;ighast : But it did him more good than the others he ]),issi ' d ; For lie wandered away with a tear and a sigh. And thought : " Someone knows more about it than 1. " 94 Spasm III. When tile second year came. like a midsummer dawn, He looked on the in-flocking freshmen with corn ; And this thought did him good in a fractional way — He was Yj nearer a lawyer than they. So he started to learn how to smoke cigarettes, And other amusements (a wise man forgets). And he found the sweet calm that tobacco begets And prepared to " smoke up " at " Exam " between " sweats. ' The " Exam " was on Pleading, and Mr. Poe said That he didn ' t think smoking was good for the head This our friend thought was a strong " declaration. " So he forthwith went up with a young " replication. " But all that his genial professor would say. As he leaned on his arm in a fatherly way. Was : " My boy, I ' m sure that your brain it will muddle ; And think of the other geese in the same puddle. " Oh ! conglomerate mass of the short second term. Four intricate subjects at once made him squirm. And when at the end he found he was through it. His chief wonder was, h.ow he managed to do it. 95 Convulsion IV. To think o the j ) ' of the proud senior ' s hjt. When his head at last pokes from the. boiling pot : When he peers through the thick smoke of battle around And catches faint glimpses of the Holy Ground. And thinks of diplomas all written in Latin. And squares out his shoulders of soft cotton-batting, And the first term ' s gone, and the second ' s at hand. With theses, and moot-court, and eiiuity grand. Oh ! the time he wasted, the tears he spdt. On presumption of innocence or guilt. And he worked away on it day and night. And into his darkness came no ray of light. In manuscripts buried from head to his heels, And his brain ' s gone a-fishing with four dozen And at last he thinks that he has it in shape. And he carefully measures it out with a tape. And when he discovers there ' s not fifteen pages He swears like a whole Hock of Spaniards in cages. And though he has doctrines and cases in herds. His essay ' s remarkable chiefly for words. But he hands it all in with misgivings and (|ualms. And girds up his loins for the final " exanis. " reels. Convulsion V. Oh ! sanguine forecastings of lOo ' s in bunches What rivers of beer, corresponding free-lunches. Then, ho ! for Commencement, with flowers and light : When the dark past is gone, and ihe future ' s all bright ! . nd he dreams him a sweet dream of clients in throngs. Who clamor around him, cf)mi)laining of wrongs. 96 With footmen who bring in retainers in baskets, And silver and jewels and medals in caskets. And then he woke up with a shuddering yawn, And through the closed shutters came peeping the dawn. Oh ! " such a headache " and body so languid, And then he remembers — he ' s been to the banquet. So through the years, and pa pays office rent Until the poor old man ' s last penny is spent. And when it is gone, and with it the vision. Our lawyer goes down town and gets a position. For his friends look for jobs — all around them they seek- And they get him a job at four dollars per week. Last Gasp. Now, why this sad end to a vouth of such promise ? Listen, sweet reader, ' tis a warning to dummies : If ere you should stand out a graduate fair. With parchment in hand, and laurel on hair, Don ' t let yourself think you ' re the only one there. And should it be Law, kind friend, pray forbear, To dig the fine dust enclosed just here. Hold on to your job, your employer thank. And take your small salary and put it in bank. And should vou be troubled with swelling of head. Better not practice Law till the others are dead. M ' s Vampire. A tool thorc was and to Law School he came, Even as you and I. To strengthen his mind and make him a name ; To be a great jurist was his dearest (?) aim ; To march with the band in the ranks of fame ; Even as you and I. Oh ! the years we waste, And the tears we waste. And the work of our head and hand. Belong to the clients who do not know. And now we know they never could know. And never could understand. A fool there was, and a case he got, Even as you and I. Quoted rules and decisions, and Heaven knows what — The Judge woke up ; said : " That ' s all tommy rot. " And the fool crept home to his humble cot. Even as you and I. Oh ! the spoil we lost. And the toil we lost, And the excellent things we planned. Belong to the clients who never know why : And now we know they could never know why. And could not understand. The fool at last learned to long for bread. Even as you and I.

" Xo unity of action or feeling ever marked its past, no officers were ever elected until last year, no class photograph was ever taken — its career marked by a deliberate and unwholesome attempt on the part of a band of our class known as " The Faithful Sixteen " ' to operate the machiner}- of our afl ' airs, who met their Waterloo at the class election, whose colors were decidedly lowered by the result of the choice of the prize men, x hose funeral march sounded the dreariest when hospital appointments were announced, who were loth to remain on the night of the 20th in peniten- tial tears, w(jrshiping at the shrine of the gods, and uttering heart-rending sljrieks and pitiable groans aroimd the historic funeral pyre of their own humiliation and defeat ; while the " Survival of the Fittest " partook of the essentials of corporeal sustenance, talked glibly and sang merrily — all in one night — to the demise of those who were sensible enough to absent themselves from where they were not wanted ; who were reluctant to appear in society so soon after their own death ; who were so foolish as to project themselves into a red-hot fire so intricately arranged for others ; who were so very kind as to leave for their enemies that of which they had so hesitatingly deprived themselves. All these topical occurrences of the college life might be attributed to the existence of a " Cat-hell " " in (-ur numbers, occasionaly ofifset b - the appear- ance of a little " Sleet, " " I)ut we feel proud of our standing, for we have tenaciously remained in our " Hall " of learning, and with the " Strong Arm " of confidence have grabbed Iiy the ' " Legge, " " the " W ' olffe " of opposition to (jur career, and " Shook " liis " Hyde " " from his osseotis frame ; emerging most of us. bright as a piece of well-tempered " Steele. " We have gone to war with our " Cannon. " " and oiu- only " Hart " went with liini. Also have we been marital, a faithful triumvirate who acce])ted the bonds of single blessed- ness, and thus, scripturally speaking, " betook unto themselves a wife. ' " and " each one won one, and yet they are only one, " " and onK duc, too. we hope, forever. ( )ur class has endeavored to change the college colors, as it woul l be lucrative, indeed, to (mx " Cotton Mills " to turn out " dreen liuntine ' " all io6 the year ' round, and so " Seth " all of us. Everyone knows of the quartette — Bunting, Buckner, Gilbert and Wooton — all of them up to date ; but how the former could sing those Southern melodies, and how the latter could play the guitar in the Banjo Club ! Oh ! my. As to football, we had our Gilbert, the centre-rush, and Cathell, our liig-hearted and big-framed guard, and vSteele, the old pig-skin pusher and manager of this year ' s team — " perhaps " an appropriate name for any man who had charge of the money end of a team. Gilbert organized and was president and business manager of the first (jlee. Banjo and Mandolin Club the ' ' arsity ever possessed. Lit tle " Mickey " " stands on the summit of the highest pinnacle of athletics in this school, the prime mover in hockey and baseball, aided in the former by Cotton and Kennard, and always hustling for football interests as well. Our medical work all the Faculty commend ; the averages they gave us can certainly attest the truth of their praise, and in the words of our Dean. Dr. Alitchell, " This present departing class as a whole had higher averages than for some time past. " A few jocose queries might not be amiss in this little treatise : 1. How did the Amalkamite get the ophthalmological prize ? 2. What was the common house-stttdent ' s disease ? 3. What annoyed Xorth Carolina Joe so much when he went to Tolchester ? 4. ' hat did Gilbert do with all that Glee, Banjo and Mandolin Club ' s money ? 5. How did Routson manage to secure the obstetrical prize ? 6. Why didn ' t Smith win the surgical prize, or why did he al sent himself from the swell box-party ? 7. What did Chic drink at the banquet ? 8. What l ecame of little Harry ' s Bowery girl ? 9. Why did Hughes say " what " so much on that eventful Friday night ? 10. Why did Boyer ever leave the farm ? I T. Why does Buckner now always refuse a drink ? 12. Why did Mills want to remain in the Lying-in Hospital ? 13. Why did Gilbert leave the ' A ' arsity Inn ? 14. Why was " Baby " such an appropriate name for Cason ? 15. How did it happen that any of us graduated ? Answer IN TOTO : QUI EN SABE. 107 I!ut may the un])lcasantries and the ])leasantries of our col lej e days convince ns tlia! tliis is onlv the rellection of wliat we may expect for the rest of our lives ; stimulating us to forget the past, overcoming our weakness 1) ' our strengtli : transforming l)y the rays of the sunlight of the " Teacher Expe- rience " and of true legitimate ambition the mists of careless living, and indifferent speaking into lives possessed of reined in and controlled senses with an increasingly active desire to be useful to hiunanity at large, and thus being the last class to bid adieu to the closing century, we wish (iodsjieed and kindly greetings to the succeeding graduates of the new one.

In a sweeping gallop he went through life, Heedless of his fate — the dissector ' s knife. He shuffled the cards, and the dice he threw ; He played the races — and went broke, too. And when the toboggan this " sporty " struck. He lost his nerve and was down on his luck ; So he took to drinking " the cup that cheers. " Ate free lunches and drank numerous beers.

I I ill ' ♦A Doctor of the Old School ' III History—Class of 1900- M C_)S ' J ' l)ranclies of human activity are limited l)y natural, economic or moral forces to certain prescribed lines which converge to various special loci for the purpose of primary development by concentration. Then there is a consequent radiation of these factors, and the primary development will either form a nucleus for increase per sc in this radiating system or atrophy and fade aw ay without result. Xo branch of human efforts follows this law more closely than the sttidy and practice of medicine. These forces act continually, and each year finds a new set of agents conforming to this fixed rule in the influx of know ledge - seekers at the college gates, and in the exodus of radiating agents from the sheltering wing of their Alma Mater, that go, either to swell, maintain and advance the medical profession, or to cx]:)and, like the vari-colored soap- l)ubl)le until they burst, leaving only a drop of water to show that they ever existence — and even this drop ra])idly evaporates, and naught is left but a little sediment of im]nn-ities — a quackery.. In accordance with this general law, on the first of October, 1896, a new set of converging agents numbering something short of one hundred men, of all ages and from all points of the compass, appeared at the portals of tlie University of Maryland to commence the process of primary development. On this memorable date, the (lass of i()00 began its career. If one had the time to give a minute description of this motley crew, one could easily compile a volume equal to an examination on therapeutics ; but only being allowed a year in which to generate this superficial account, such a feat would border on the impossible. The faces represented characters as varied as the faces were numerous. There were lean men, fat men. intellectual-looking men, stujjid-looking men and ' arious nondescripts. iVniong the younger elements the pathetic and heart-rending processes of coaxing out the tar l_ - ca])illary api)endages, with which to adorn the ]-)ersist- ently smtjolh upper lip. were in full blast. .Mas ! one seeks an object for this desecration of the fair velvety skin of the youth without success. W ' hv does lie insist on [)luming his visage with this liirsute growth llial would adorn the 112 barber ' s vvastebox or tbe prairie to much better effect ? It is true, it possesses all the qualities that go to make up a good filter according to our " hygienic " researches ; but, then, has he no consideration for the sweet lips that may be cruelly pricked by this superfiuous " ■ stubble " ? Sufficeth to say that it is one of the inexplicable idiosyncrasies of the verdant youth which have puzzled philosophers and delighted barbers ab initio. The inflated man, as is always the case with one afflicted with a superfluity of fat, poses as one benign, glistening, pleasant mass of rotundity with a tranquil countenance never rippled by the slightest sign that would indicate mental strife, or. in fact, betoken that there was any particular place in his anatomy in which a " mental " ' strife could exist. The only sign of life about him is the automatic use of his hat as a fly-fan and the continuous oozing of water through the ill-puttied seams of his make-up, which have been so stretched by internal expansion that he is no longer able to contain himself, but does naught but sweat, sweat, SWEAT untn one is forcibly reminded of the sub-soil water and spring system which ffives oriein to the beautiful mountain rivulets on the banks of which we are prone to regale the idle hours of summer. lUit enough of this ( lioard of Editors concur) : There is also evident amongst this group the crystalline or angular variety. Upon Ijeholding this spectacle, one is inspired with pity— there seems to be such an air of insufficient nourishment that the kind-hearted immediately goes over, shakes the transparent atrophied hand of this ethereal being, and says : " Do come join me in a mug and some free lunch. " There is a wan smile of assent, and they hie away to the festive dispenser of " dark " and " light shells, " " ponies " and " barber poles " " to imbibe a mug or stein of that which sets all earthly cares at naught. There are little men with big brains, big men with little brains, in this assemblage. Occasionally in such gatherings one is likely to find certain human agents without any brains. I forget the exact species of the Genus Homo, but an analogy is struck in the animal kingdom in relation to Balaam and his trip to the land of Moab. I only mention this human anomaly to make the starding assertion that there was a conspicuous absence of it in the crowd that surged before the " gilded " doors of the University on this memorable October morning. Noses and ears of all imaginable shapes and colors could be seen ; but one nose especially stood out prominent for inspection because of its very nega- tiveness. Cyrano de Bergerac and this lad with an equal nasal distribution 113 would make very comely men. I am sure. Ikit it corresponds to the whole of human life — one gets all, the other nothing. But 1 think the case of Cyrano was more hopeless, for if he had had a piece of his nose cut otT, then there would have remained an ugly scar ; hut in the case of our youthful contemporarv, a weight attached to the delinquent member every night before letiring might alleviate the " ingrowing " condition of the nose without, at least, an increased disfigurement. Alas ! for the intellectual-looking man — he will soon discover the error of his vays when he awakes to the conclusion that what he does not know will fill two Congressional Libraries ; throw in Gray ' s Anatomy, and various other obsolete volumes. At last the doors were swung, and the conquering heroes trod for the first time their adopted home for the next four years. The jovial Dean, beaming with holy joy. welcomed them one by one, shaking hands with his right hand, while with his left he received the " ofcii sesame " in the form of a fat check direct from papa ' s reluctant check book. Time passed pleasantly enough during the first year. There were no " exams, " and consequently the members of this class alternated the tedious " breaking in " study with sundry expeditions to " see the town " and, sorrah the dav. some were so enraptured at the sight that they are at it yet. The lean man now sees, through the dim vista of uncertainty, beautiful pastures in whicli to roam and graze to his heart ' s content. He has the opportunit - to partake of dense masses of mental food until his head reaches a size that threatens apoplexy. This boarding-house, also, furnishes dense masses of food for his inner man. of which he may also partake until l)ursting is threatened in another quarter. I mention — " dense " — well, this is the most appropriate word with which to describe a student ' s life during the first year. He arrives at the University in. a state of dense ignorance, intellectually. He begins then to relieve this density by attending dense lectures and by dense studying of denser subjects, lie morall} ' and spiritually sinks into a condition of dense uncertainty. lie eats dense chunks of food, drinks dense liquids, and spends dense sums of ])a])a ' s cash, and finally winds up at the end of the year in a condition of densest idiocw ( )ne cannot ])ut marvel at the general air of density that characterizes the very existence of the student in the first ])()rtion of his course. Hut delightful A])ril, willi its budding flowers and balmy zephyrs, comes to relieve the monotony of this uncertain life, and this delightful month was a (iod-send to the Class of 1900. for it gave them once more a chance to breathe fresh country air. to shake off the shackles of a restricted life, to close 114 those instruments of torture, the text-books ; for awhile at least flee as a bird back to the home of their childhood and the bosoms of their families. In the early part of this year, when the plodders were just emerging from the dim mist of uncertainty that shrouds the initial year of study, the grim reaper came to interrupt the earthly endeavors of one of the most congenial of our members. P3ut Death could not destroy the memory of his associates, and the name of Walter Dudley will ever exist in the minds of his class- mates — well beloved while he lived ; deeply mourned when he died. When time had now flown well enough along to allow the freshman class of 1901 to feel its importance and to liecome obstreperous, it became evident that measures would have to be taken to reduce this presumptions gang of youths to their proper status. Consequently, after a new election of officers, the Class of 1900, in sundry secret meetings, devised means by which this task could be best accomplished. The audacious freshman who dared to " sport " a hirsute chin was solemnly w arned by mysterious poster placed in the halls of the University that his conduct was construed to result from presumptiousness, and unless said growth was removed in twenty-four hours, a desperate Ijand of men had determined to resent the insult by forcil ly removing the offending adorn- ment in a less scientific and gentle manner than would even become a poor barber. Choice seats in the various study halls were forbidden the verdant " freshy, " and restrictions were placed on other privileges that make his conduct as a freshman unbecoming and highly offensive to the dignified and sedate " soph. " The freshmen naturally -took exception to this summary manner in which they were dealt with, and the result was an increased growth of whiskers and an independent strut that would have put the stage villain to shame. Bellig- erent articles were immediately drawn up by the offended " sophs, " and war to the teeth was decided upon. The climax to this drama occurred one balmy afternoon when th)l2 unsus- pecting " freshies " came marching down from a late lecture, swelling witJi pride and exaltation. A band of the strongest sophs had collected at the first landins and as each one of these vouthful " swell-heads " made his appearance, he was unceremoniously seized and hurled through space, irre- spective of whether heels or head were on top, until the ground floor checked the force of gravity, and a resounding " thuni]) " rang out the note of the downfall that always fellows pride. This process continued until each freshman had received his reprimand, and as each hit the floor he gradually picked himself up with a " lost-soul " expression, and painfully limped 115 tuwards home. 1 was never so forcil)ly reminded of X ' iri il and Dante viewing the streams of lost souls coursinq- through Hell, as I was on seeing this stream of freshmen sailing through the buoyant ether to join their friends who had preceded them in their downward tiight. After this occurrence, peace reigned supreme, and broken hats, collars and limbs were forgotten for the time, in the near approach of the first series of " exams " for the Class of lyoo. A peculiar metamorphosis took place spontaneously about this time — a strange " hollow eye " and " leanness " became common to all the " sophs. " and as the dreaded week approached symptoms of this peculiar malady increased. During the examination week the excitement was intense. In most cases the examinations were a condition of i-citi. c ' ( , I ' ici, l)ut after it was all over there were no triumphant marches, no shouting — complete exhaustion held sway over body and brain, and more dead than alive the Class of 1900 once more departed from the gates of the .lima Mafcr to spend a six-month in the recuperative enjoyment of home. October 1, 1898, saw the reappearance of the now famous 1900 as Juniors. All had full}- recovered and were ready to step into the ring once more to battle for supremacy. The latter part of 1898 and the portion of 1899 already elapsed only served to elevate the already high standard of the Class of 1900. The relative positions of the ladder-climbers has changed somewhat, perhaps. but there still exists a howling, angry mob of twenty or more arounrl the top. Great will l)e the credit due him who finally stands forth as the victor in the Battle Royal. One more year will com])lete the primary development of the class of congenial toilers, and then — licfore the footlights with spike-tailed coats and low-cut vests — thev will make their first l)ow as graduates. Then will commence life ' s discouraging struggle — to live or die. sink or swim. Time alone will tell the tale — we. after all, are naught but puppets with whicli the T ' ates amuse themselves. So let credit be, to him who falls fighting valiantl} ' , as well as to him who fights and lives to reap his reward. liUSE 1m;i.on. — " Stiff sloalinu. ' 116 n Crainea Rurse ' s Valentine.

Remarks in parentheses are by the editors. HS the last fading rays of September, 1898, glided rapidly into the ocean of eternity, there ushered into Baltimore a conglomeration of " Doc- tors " to be, to the ttme of three-score and ten, who, keeping " Time, time, time, in a sort of Runic rhyme, " were ushered through the corri- dors of the University of Maryland to contribute fuel to that already inextinguishable tiame of knowledge burning in the shrine of learning (and to contribute their fees to the bank account of the Faculty). So we came as a mountain stream rushing onward through the enchanted regions of romance (and with a freshness like unto that of new-laid eggsj. So we came as a fragrant stream of knowledge, nourishing each flower upon its banks. The birds filling the atmosphere with swelling waves of melody sang our praises (and the police recorded our deeds). Even the grass, with its beautiful mantle of green, seemed to turn pale with envv as we passed ( for never before had it been brought into rivalry with a greener greenness). Do I hear my gentle reader say : " All this display is ' Much ado about nothing. ' " Listen, my fellow-sufiferefs, while I elucidate (no bouquets, please). It simply shows the high esteem in which the Class of 1901 is held (by itself — Eds.), for it has once more entered the classic halls of the University of Maryland, and is swallowed up in the crowds of the metropolis like a drop in the bosom of the sea. Some have come forth from the mountains, crowned with musical forests, and others from the valleys where golden harvests wave beneath the rolling strain (and not a few were just from jail ). They realized the year was not like the last ( for none of their former boarding-houses would take them liack). They knew thev had something more to do than to go to and fro from lectures. ( There were lectures to be cut.) They knew that this year was as important as anv to come. Thev knew it meant lucubration under the heat of a burning lamp (and beer beneath the belt). They knew it meant feeding the hungry dream of knowledge (the himgry dream of food with free lunch). They knew they had to keep 121 ])aiiUc(l 111)011 ilic canvas of their niiiids a ■ " purpose ' " (to keej) the town painted red). These, indeed, were (hities and responsibilities very arduous. They nia - be compared to those laid upon Hamlet, " The effect of a great action laid upon a soul unfit for the performance of it. " lUu with brave hearts and enthusiastic ho])es these hardy sons of toil robed themselves with the armor of mii ht, and are waiting patiently for the fight ( and the exams ). Dr. W ' insknv started the ball a-rolling by lecturing; on anatomv in his usual fluent ( ?) manner. So the ice had been broken, and we were now to drink deep of the " Pierean Spring- " (to say nothing- of the keg). The next meeting of Dr. Winslow ' s was, of course, looked forward to with the .greatest delectation, for it was a (juiz, and one worthy of note. Dr. Winslow to Hare — Air. Hare, describe the " Pons asiiionini " oi anatomy. Haic — Doctor, 1 am confused. 1 feel myself floating ' on an ocean of human imagination, without compass to tlirect me, tending- toward neither pole, and without a coast to land upon. The Doctor — That will do. Hare. Air. Sappington, do you know ? Doc, 1 feel like one in the midst of a river on the point of being drowned without hope of succor. " Aiiisi ' ortJi to Sappington — That ' s no jok ' e, for when Dr. Miles gets hold of you in the spring you will be drowned. Dr. Wiu. ' ilow — Mr. b )ut, can you rectify matters for us ? lUit k ' out was in the deplorable and lamentable situation of the pious Aeneas, when " Obstiipuld Stctc sunt(iur Corniac, ct r ' o.r faiicihiis liac. ' iit: " " Mr. Storlings, let us hear you. " " Doctor, my memory stands patienth ' fishing in the ] )ool of the past for the t ' liduring relics of by-g;one days. " ' " . ow, Mr. Waters, last but not least, trv your hand at it. " lUit, alas ! the thoughts of Waters seemed to be soaring high into the clouds, and he was heard to exclaim with Cicero: " dii i}ninorlalc. ' tib ' niani gcnf ' unn .S ' mnii.s ' .

Th, Winslo-w, The l)abhUng day had touched the hem of night ' s garment (which, we infer, is a night shirt ) and weary and still dropped asleep in her bosom ; when, as 1 wandered towards the University, 1 saw standing on the corner — no, my gentle readers, not a " valler gal, " but no other than Davis, my old dissecting partner. He looked as if he had the cares of the world upon him, and as I approached him I noticed a liquid tear trembling upon his closing eyelids. He told me he was thinking of one afar off on exotic shores ( we imagine that it is very painful to live on exotic shores) a " woman of her gentle sex a seeming paragon. " That she was his angel and his dream, and as " a lily upon the river floating, she floated upon the river of his thoughts. " How much he said would I love to feel her little pulse and listen to those " muflled drums playing funeral marches to the grave. " After listening to his " tale of woe " I took him around the corner and administered " spiritus frumenti, " after which he seemed greatly relieved. In the reading-room of the Y. M. C. . . one morning Ainsworth and Waters were discussing the theory of a man ( Schenk by name) who had led thousands of young men into the green pastures of knowledge and placed them beside the pleasant fountain of wisdom. Ainsworth to J Voters — I wonder, Waters, whether we could get a micro- scope powerful enough to determine from the egg whether the future embryo will be a male or female. 123 ll ' citcrs — I (U)n ' t know. 1 wonder if we could i;et one powerful enough to determine whether it will have chicken pox or measles We seem to have within our ranks a modern Hudibras — Reekes by name, for— ■ ' He is in logic a great critic. Profoundly skilled in analytic. He can distinguish and divide A hair twixt South and South West Side. " Mr. Wrench, remarking " on l i])ling ' s recent poem, thought it very good, but it ought to have run thusly : " Take up the student ' s burden — A great and praiseworthy thing. Go place upon his brow The cap of Wisdom ' s sting. Crown him with knowledge and wit galore, For examinations will soon be here. And he will need even — more. " (We admit this to help fill the page.) Our class consists of a galaxy of glittering names in the temple of fame. We arc told by those who have imbibed at the fountain of wisdom that we shotild not brood over the dreary past, nor dream of the uncertain future, f)ut that we should live in the present (and eat all we can). And I am afraid that many who are firm advocates of everything " that fallet h from the lips of the wise ' " will, when the examinations come, wish they had sailed more frequently on the sea of the uncertain future. Ikit " Sweet is pleasure after ])ain, " " and after it is all over thev will once more rettirn to their beloved iiomes (and creditors) to find that the birds sing as gay as ever, the flowers bloom as lovely, and that Peace has folded her dew-spangled wings and lies sleeping in the vale on a bed of violets, with her tinv feet wrapjjed up in the green leaves of happiness, and that Contentment sits upon the sunny side of a hill indulging in felicitotis dreams.

" 126 ' fyUm4-P A-- trvc- i Hn Ji ¥ W 1 he Science of Kissing (fT T HEX the o ' er Imsy bacteriologists tirst announced that osculation J was a dangerous pastime, that divers and sundry varieties of bacteria hopped blithely back and forth, engendering- disease and death, I undertook a series of experiments solely in the interest of science. I succeeded in demonstrating that osculation when practiced with reasonable discretion and unfaltering industry, is an infallible antidote for at least half the ills that human flesh is heir to. The reason that the doctors arrived at a different conclusion is because they kissed indiscriminately and reasoned inductively. They found on casting up the account that bad breath and face powder, the sour-milk bottle of youth and the chilling frost of age, comprised six-sevenths of the sum total. Under such conditions there was nothing to do but establish a quarantine. I pointed out that a health microbe as well as a disease bacillus nidificates on the osculatory apparatus, and added that failure to absorb a sufficient quantity of these hygiologic germs into the 127 system causes old maids to look jaundiced and Ijachelors to die sooner than l)enedicts. Kisses, when selected with due care and taken on the installment plan, will not only restore a misplaced appetite, hut are especially beneficial in cases of hay fever, as they banish that tired feeling ' , tone up the liver, invigorate the heart, and luake the blood to sing- thro " the system like a giant jewsharp. I found by patient experiment that the health microbe l ecame active at fifteen, reaches maturity at twenty, begins to lose its vigor at fort} . and is quite useless as a tonic when, as someone has tersely expressed it, a woman ' s kisses begin to " taste of her teeth. " Thin, bluish lips produce very few health germs, and those scarce worth the harvesting ; but a full, red mouth, with Cupid curves at the corners, will yield enormously if the crop ])e properly cultivated. 1 did not discover whether the l)londe or l)runette variety is entitled to precedence in medical science, but incline to the opinion that a judicious admixture is most advisable from a therapeutical standpoint. Great care should lie taken when collecting the germs not to crush them l)y violent collision, or blow them away with a loud explosion that sounds like hitting an empt - sugar hogshead with a green hide. The practice stdl prevailing in many parts of this country of chasing a young woman over the furniture aiid aroimd the barn like an amateur co vl)oy trying to ro]:)e a maverick, rounding her up in the presence of a dozen people, unscrewing her neck, and planting almost any place a kiss that sounds like a nudey cow pulling her hind foot out of a ])lack-wax_ - mud-hole, and which jars the putty off the window panes, possesses no more curative powers than hitting a fiitch of bacon with the back of vour hand. I i)rithee, avoid it ; when a girl runs from a kiss you may take it for granted either that the germ croj) is not ripe or you are poaching on somebody else ' s preserves. The best results can be o])tained about the midnight hour, when the dew is on the rose, the jasmine Inid drunken with its own perfume, and the mockl)ir(l trilling a last good-night to its drowsy mate. You entice your I)est girl into the garden to watch ' enus ' flaming orl) hanging like the Ixohinoor pendant from the crescent moon, ' ou ])ause beneath tlie great gnarled live oak, its nuriad leaves rustling softly as the wings of seraphs. Don ' t l)e in a hurry, and for God ' s sake don ' t gab — in such a night silence is the acme of elo{|uence. " ■ In . ' -uch a night Trolius moimted the ' I ' rojan walls and sighed his soul toward the ( irecian tents where ( " ressid law " .She watches the fireflies respiring in ])hos])horescent tlaiue. amid the clover blocjms while ( u watch her, and twine a spray of honeysuckle in her hair. She looks very beautiful with her face ujiturned in the moonlight : but don ' t .say a word about it. for there ' s a litlle of the poseur about all the daughters of Eve. She withdraws her e es from 1 28 the stars, slowly, turns them dreamily upon yours, and you note that thev are filled with astral fire. They roam idly over the shadowy garden, then close as beneath a weight of weariness. Her head rests more heavily against vour shoulder, and her bosom trembles with a half-audible sigh. There is now really no occasion for further delay. Do not swoop down upon the health- germs like a hungry hen-hawk on a green gosling, but incline your head gently until your carefully deodorized breath is upon her lips — there pause, for the essence of enjoyment is in anticipation. The man who gulps down a glass of old wine without first inhaling its oenanthic and feasting his eyes upon its ruddy splendors, is simply a sot. Wait until you have noted the dark lashes reclining upon the cheek of sun-fiushed snow, " the charm of married brows, " the throat of alabaster, the dimple in her chin, the wine-tint of her half-parted lips, with their glint of pearl — wait until her eyes half open, look inquiringly into yours, and close again, then cincture her gently but firmly with one arm, support her chin with the other hand, and give the health germs ample time to change their home. A kiss, to have any scientific value, should last one minute and seven seconds by Shrewsbury clock, and be repeated seven times, not in swift successi on, but with the usual interval between wine at a symposiac. Byron did these things differentlv, but the author of Don Juan is not a safe example for young folks to follow. He pictures Mars lying with his head in the lap of ' enus, ■ ' Feeding on thy sweet cheek, while thy lips are With lava-kisses melting while they burn. ' Shower ' d on his eyelids, brow and mouth as from an urn. " That may be eminently satisf actor}- to Mars, but scarce proper for ' enus. It is exciting, but not scientific. It suggests charity children gorging them- selves with plum pudding rather than poetic natures drunken with beauty and fragrance, swooning ' neath the sweetness of a duet sung by their own chaste souls. The dyspeptic who cannot recover by following my prescrip- tion deserves to die. The pessimist whom it doesn ' t make look at life thro " rose-tinted glasses should be excluded from human society. The hypochon- driac whom it doesn ' t help ought to be hanged. There is not a human ill, unless it be hypocrisy — for which nature does not provide a remedy, and I recommend the health germ whicli builds its nest on lovely woman ' s lips as worth more than the whole materia medica. I don ' t know whether it will raise the dead, but I ' ve always doubted the story that Egypt kissed the cold lips of her Roman Antony — have suspected it would have brought me back to life and love had I been dead a month. The unscientific catch-as-catch-can 129 kiss has no mure Ijeneftcial effect than slappin - yourself in the face with a raw heefsteak. It is hut a shght improvement on the civihzation of Ashantee, where a man proposes marriasje l)y knocking,- his Dulcinea down with a ckib and dragging- her through the liackwoods ' pasture l)y the hair of the head ; l)Ut kisses projierly taken, licneatli the stars and among the roses, are the perennial fount of }outh fur which Ponce de Leon sailed far seas in vain searching for the blessed Bimini.

These little horns we bequeath to our posterity to enable them to shout our praises when we are far away. Some of us have a speaking acquaintance with the pastors and Sunday school teachers of this " Christian ' " city, and are not unknown at the Y. M. C.

I X the beginning was created the University of 2 laryland, and the Legis- lature was the creator thereof, and when they saw the great Dome which ■ contains the lecture halls, they said it was very good ; but still they rested not for many days, and they multiplied buildings and halls, laid gardens, and planted groves ; and great changes were seen on the corner of Green and Lombard streets in those days. Then the Legislature said unto the University of Maryland : " Be fruitful and multiply " ' ; and, behold ! she brought forth three sons, which became the fathers of great nations, and the names of these sons are Medicine, Dentistry and Law. And these are the tribes of the University unto this day, and their members are as the sands of the seashores. Now, the records of the tribe of Medicine, are they not written in letters of black on the anatomy of the children of men ? And are not the doings of the sons of Law to be seen in the suffering of the people, who have been despoiled while pursuing the phantom, Justice ? JJut the sayings of this work are of the tribe of Dentistry. In the year one, in the second month and the middle of the month, was born a man in the tribe of Dentistry, and his name was called Ferdinand, whose surname was Gorgas ; and another son was born whose name was called James, whose surname was Harris ; and they became mighty men, and their fame went abroad through all the world, and the gods were with them, and they gave laws unto the tribe of Dentistry of the University of Maryland, and the tribe waxed strong and multiplied, and many valiant men appeared who ' were princes in the tribe ; and the names of these were Isaac Davis, John Uhler, Clarence Grieves, John Geiser and many others, and their voices were heard in the council of the tribes. But one day in the cool of the morning, as the leaders of the tribe were walking in the gardens, the serpent appeared unto them and tempted them, saying : " Behold ! there are millions of money in it, " and they did yield at once and began to seek out ways to obtain this treasure, and this was the beginning of woe for the children of the tribe of Dentistry. And the gods left them alone, and the serpent tempted them again, and they reasoned among them- selves, saying : " Thus shall we ' do ' the young men of the tribe : Upon every son that is brouijht into the tribe there shall be fixed a tax of One Hundred and l ve pieces of silver, and no money shall be spent upon improvements in the 149 l ' Ui])lc. They shall run the lathe and engine l)y the sweat of their feet, fur nu motor power sliall ])e given them, neither will anv free material he given them for patients ; hut they shall he as the ehildren of Israel in Egypt, who made bricks without straw, and no one shall escape until he has served three years ' confinement and paid over Thirty golden coins, and no more banquets given. " And the tribe did groan under the oppression of the rulers. Now it came to pass in those days that the rulers of the tribe did join themselves with the leaders of strange tribes of Dentistry, which are in all parts of the world. and tliey did make war against all the yoitng men of the tribes of Dentistry, and (lid ])revail against them. and they forgot the great commandment. " Thou shalt love th}- brother as thyself, " " and when they saw that the young men could not stand against them, the - put upon them many grievous laws, for they were given over to the Evil ( )ne, devising plans by which they might keep possession of all the fertile helds of the earth that they might obtain the riches thereof, and the young men were greatly cast down and prayed that a deliverer might come. And their prayers were answered, for. behold ! there appeared in the land of Xew York a man. a prophet, and he did prophesy, saying : " Thus sayeth the gods of Dentistry — [(chold ! we have seen the oppression of our people by their enemies, hut the days of their captivity are almost at an end. for we will deliver them from the hands of their oppressors and all their enemies shall be laid low. and their names and deeds shall be known among all nations as Drones, and the mark of Cain shall be in their foreheads : for did they not slay their brethren ? Then our young men shall go up and possess their lands and shall have part in the profits thereof. " " And great was the rejoicing among the young men when they heard the words of the Prophet Otellenque. for according to his words the day of deliv- erance is at hand. May it come cpiickly ! Amen.

Clas ' Treasurer. 162 History — O ss of 99» RETR()SPECTI ' EL1 ' glancing over the career of the Class of 99, the historian is struck with the fact that nearly all the events which have happened during the past three years have been particularl}- pleasant. As we pass out from the halls that have been our training school, though forebodings of future failure ma ' haunt us, yet our comforting assurance is, that our course has ■i fc -r s been spent profitably, not only in the gain of knowledge — our t W weapon in the battle with the world — l)Ut in making friend- " V- 3i ships that will l)e firm through life, and the associations connected with our university life will be pleasing sul)jects for IJiilKM thought over the evening pipe in years to come. Shortly subsecjuent to our first entry into the lecture hall in 1896, after we had gradually become accustomed, Ijetween naps, to the habit of exam- ining the lofty roof and rafters of the machine which has made so many eminent lawyers, ward politicians and City Councilmen, we took a look- around us. The result of our inspection was very gratif ing, for we discov- ered that we were a very fine lot of fellows, from our own point of view. In this we were not mistaken, for we have the decision of the eminent manager of the Moot Court as authority. This adjudicatidn, rendered in a somewhat informal way — na ' , it has even been asserted to l)e an obiter dictum — was in this wise : A fair sample of us had l)een in the " ofifice " paying sundr}- small installments of tuition, a proceeding for which the annals of the Aarsity furnished no ])recedent. ( )n this occasion Chancellor Kent said, with some emphasis, that we were " somewhat of a nuisance, l:)Ut you will all make good lawvers. " It is not to be doubted that to the Kentorian mind we were a nuisance ])ecause the payment by installments occupied more of the Chancellor ' s time than a payment in full would have done ; he was there))} ' deprived to some extent of his usual afternoon avocation of riding in the elevator. There appears to be some conflict of opinion between Mr. Kent ' s application of the term " nuisance, " and the definition laid down in text-books and decisions of the courts. During the winter of ' 96, some of us acquired the habit of attending the meetings of the " wSenate. " This continued for some weeks, till it occurred to i6 someone to ask what was the object of the said " ■ Senate. " A learned senior informed us that the objects (jf the " Senate " ' generally converged in a banquet during the winter, and that then the august assemblage went to sleep till winter came again. We all thought the j urpose a good one, and though no dues were re([uired, we contributed a certain amount per capita, and had a banquet. There was the usual annual conten.tion as to wdiether the banquet was to be a wet or dry one. We cast our votes for the " wet " faction, and we (editorially) were on the more numerous side. Everyone in the Univer- sity went to the banquet " to hear the speeches, " which were to be so good, especiall} ' the Major ' s jokes ; enthusiasm ran wild, and presentations were in order. One gentleman received a plate of butter, while our representative, Mr. Maloy, received the silverware — the plates having previously been exhausted. Since the advent of " 99 the " Senate " has lost its mild and ])eaceful char- acter, and has been practicing debate : our sympathies are for the wine- merchant. According to one l inswanger, it is now composed of " anarchists, nuickers, mugwumps and politicians, prominent among whom is one Nice, who continually persists in taxing the patience of his auditors by his three- year-old- i6-to-i -tin-tariff s])eech, sup])Osedly written ])v a single-tax advocate known l) - tlie name of Pat when he was suffering from one of his fits of the D. T. ' s. " ' After the Senate refused to have ban(|uets, " ( j organized l a])pa Sigma, which has continued the good work, and now all the events worthy of record are duly made imi)ortant b - this ])odv. As juniors, on some afternoons ])efore the lecturer was due. for a livei " sion. we inaugurated " ])oker " and other innocent ( ?) games in the librarw These games were conducted on the Chicag(; plan. " a la Harrison Carter ' s admin- istration. " Xo complaints were filed on this account, till Professor , noticing the game, was asked to join us. He declined, and as the librarian became a])])rehensive of the i)erversion of his morals, the l ' " acult - regretftilly ])rohibited the contiiniation of the games, and we were forcetl to seek the seclusion of a small 4x4 room situated above the lilirarx ' . Some seniors were holding an executive meeting in this room one after- noon. We resented this imwarranted assum])tion of ])rivilege acquired b - our prescri])tivc user. Led ]) - the -aliant full-])ack Lutz. we cre])l in Indian hie slowly and silentl - up the stairwa and ])arricade(l the door with the janitor ' s furniture. There the seniors did penance till 9 r. m., w lien the janitor, about to retire for the night, missed his furniture, and on his hunt for it, tuiubled, not only o ' er his be(l and waslistand. ])Ut to the jo] e. A fruitless investigation 164 followed, and Runges (the janitor) was rather sour on ns up to tlie following Thanksgiving football game. We went to the game loaded both in and out, and Runges came back the same way. except that his load was on the mside. ' ilie ' ■ smiles of the cratur ' " which he received from our liberal tiasks on that occasion restored his good will, and his friendship is ours. We occasionally listened to an intermediate lecture, ami the freedom with which Johnny Peepoe illustrated legal principles with jokes and funny stories was a very pleasant diversion for us : but when we had attained the lofty dignity of intermediates, it was noticeable that this freedom was replaced with caution, and it was very anmsing to see our favorite lecturer glance warily oyer the class to ascertain whether Net was absent or asleep before the tale was told. Naturally a f i ' iuia facie presumption arises that said illustrations are not intended for the ears of mamma. Though these depictions may have been drawn for our predecessors since time immemorial, yet they are new and rich to each succeeding class, and hell) to endear to us the man who for so many years has l)een the sinew and chief pillar of our Law School. These stories give him a prior lien upon our hearts, they bind and strengthen the veneration and respect which are his, and which all of us have for him. It is our hope and prayer that his years of efficiency may long continue, and that his brilliant mind may shed its rays of learning upon all who follow in the paths which we have so recently trodden. At first, we were much annoyed by Mr. IJrantly ' s continuous " Ah ' s ' " and " Oh ' s, " but when a gentleman attempted to illustrate a proposition of the law of contracts by a citation from 88 Utah, which will not be published for several decades, this learned professor informed us that we would find the principle illustrated in 55 New York. He knows that in Maine the law is one way, and in California the contrary rule is stated ; that in Oklahoma a distinction is taken, but in Maryland the point has never been raised. These are things which counterbalance and override all prejudices. When Mr. Uaer took us in hand we were all W ellingtons who had passed our Waterloo. We had climbed " the rugged mountains of Elementary Law, traveled the desolate paths of Domestic Relations, strewn with the dead bodies of matrimonial misafifections, and though some had fallen in the deep ravine of Personal Property, yet it is to be hoped that none will stumble in the fertile fields of Real Estate. " His little joke and constructive damnation of the 6.30 whistle of a neighboring factory gave us as severe a shock as when the l)arrel of gasoline exploded in that same factory not many moons ago. When as Intermediates Mr. Gans boldly stated that the only way to defeat the law was to have an accurate knowledge of its principles ; and easily 165 showed us liou t(i l)rcak a l)ank wilhuiU niakiiiL;- ourselves criminally liable for either ])ur!jlary, larcen_ - (jr embezzlement, we thoui ht ourselves on the load to success. Mr. liaer explained the law of titles, and we saw some with clouds on them, due, no doubt, to the cigars and pipes of Liaer ct al. during late quizzes. Whether the unfolded kerchief of Judge R contains a lock from the curls of some long-lost love, cjr whether it is perfumed with the " attar of roses. " is a mvstery which time alone can solve. I ' roliabl}- the nujst remarkable event (or series of events, to be more accu- rate) was the arrival of Judge 1) l)efore 5.20 p. m.; the great satisfaction manifested b - him when he found tlie door barricaded so that he could not get into the lecture hall is not to ])e forgotten. ( )n this occasion, when he finally appeared upon the rostrum at 5.30, he Ijowed his thanks profusely, and after reading again for the ' steenth time the syllabits to Regents, etc., informed us that he was not well, and departed at 5.40. However, he examined us only on what was lectured upon, and we were enabled to confine our knowledge of Corporations to the space of a few pages, and therefore have no kick coming. When we became Seniors we found that " Editorial " " Hall generally issues an afternoon edition of the " Sun, ' " and we received the benefit of his opinion upon political Cjuestions. He is a])ly seconded b - the Major, who says that Cooley cannot write Constitutional Law, i)ut gives his own reasons for the Civil War and the defeat of the Confederacy. We learned so much Equity from Judge P ' s first lecture that we found it unnecessary to attend any of the others, unless we had a case to cite. The Judge is a great observer of rules, and especially of the rule that no student shall anticipate ; but he had to give in when the great law-breaker arose to cite the famous Maryland Poker case. It was then that the hall rang with the loud cheers of the class, for they knew that " " Shorty ' s " thoughts were nuniing in their usual channel. in oiu- second year we became aPPIicted with " d )mm -. " who insisted upon having our unwilling criticism of his co]) ' for Baltimore Life. We would not offend him for the world, and we patiently sat on hViday afternoons while he read his compositions. ' e have become acclimated now, and ne er take an umbrella on bViday because " " Tommy ' s " jokes will keep all rain away. Hroncho Pill has ably succeeded our old friend, the photographer, but in his efforts to see the class nicel - arranged he has lost the ])hotogra])hcr ' s best ([uality. to wit : an aniiable temper. He should remember, with our classman Morfit, that 166 ■ ' He who fights, and runs away. Remains to fight another day. " We had manv difficulties in electing our officers, especially our president. The worst difficulty was that we needed thirty-three votes and there were only thirteen offices. Those who opposed jimmie II. lost sight of the value of secrecy, and if the two men who were to have the same office had not compared notes the result might have heen different. If I ' .aker had not remained to the last and run as a dark horse, then, again, the result might have been dift ' erent. I ' .ut what is the use of " ifs. " Let Watts remember that all of us are his friends and always expect to he : that if he ever runs for a public office, our votes will be his, unless he runs on the Trohibition ticket. It is all over now ; there was never any real eniuity, and our friendship is now stronger and closer than ever it was before. If Watts and Uaker had never started in the race, we would never have known their value. Tht-y and Brewer shook hands after the result was declared, and that bond will be sealed on the evening of commencement, when the glasses will ring to the tune of " Auld Lang Syne.

I was exceediiii l} gratified to learn ol the main- honored positions S(j nian - of the class held, but 1 had been previoitsly informed b - Lharley Ho(jk. who came ottt here innnediately after the Mayoralty contest, of the hij li honor IJrewer had thrust upon him. He told me that when Jimmy ran for office, he dropped all national issues, and his platform was simply " Xo Taxation and h ' ree lleer, " and everybody hailed him as the " man of the people " and he was elected, with the assistance of Lulhardt, who had previously inspected all the tombstones in the vicinity, and registered the names of the inhalMtants of the adjacent graveyards. w1i(j all voted th.e straight ticket, and as a result Ih ' ewer ascended the high chair without much opposition, under the protection of Luthardt. Hook had alscj ])een a luckv individual, lie came out here to survey the ( )cean Txiulevard, but he soon found he coidd make a better success in life b}- working his famous shell game and holding good poker hands, until he tinally bankrupted nearh- all the unsophisticated h ' ilipinos. So having nobody else to do. and jilentv of time and nionev on hand, his mind took a romantic turn, and he eloped with Princess .Aguinaldo in order to succeed her father as king of tlie Fee |ee cannibals and to sjK ' nd his leisure moments, but not his money, m missionarv w(jrk in order to improve the condition of the natives and lo abolish slot machines. After s(jme hesitation, owing t(j the lack of funds. 1 finally decided to acce])t- tile kind invitation I had just received from " ■ the boys. " ' So after several days spent in preparing my l)aggage. which consisted mainly of trunks filled with bricks, bottles (extra dry). ])ill files and tooth picks, in order to give more weight tf) mv arrival and at the same time a better standing with the hotel proprietors as to my credit on account of ni} ' heavy equipage. I boarded one fine morning the air-ship " Swift ings " of the American Air-shi]) Propeller Transportation Company, of which Horsey tjccupies the exalted position of president. After ten days spent in traveling through the air. during which time we touched Mars, where I was intnxluced to Claytcdi, who had just been appointed Counsellor to the High .Mogul of that fiery jjlanet, and b itchett, who had estal)lished a select female dancing academy in that region, 1 arrived at the ( Irand Consolidated Depot, on tlve thirtieth fioor of the Warfield Ihiilding, in the City of Baltimore. 1 was met at the station b - the Municipal Cuide. who. besides holding the lucrative position of showing visitors the human curiosities, also held the congenial office of I ' njmoter of Marriages, Cu])id Kines. ■ ' Hello, Kines ! " ' said 1, waving my hand to one thai 1 took for him on account of his impressive physique. 170 How are }ou, George ? " ' echoed Kines, coming up and shaking m hand. I liave l)een waiting for you for some time. " 14 ow is everybod) ' ? " J asked. " Come with me and Til tell you. " said Cupid, as we shot down the elevator fiom the roof to the ground tioor with such rapidity that I was considerably winded at the finish. In the lol)by of this mammoth structure the first man to whom 1 was introduced was Levy, the celebrated manufacturer of air-tight coffins, which lie always guaranteed to every purcliaser that if he used one he would never use any other, and of whicli it was a well-known fact that during liis long and successful business career he had never received a single complaint. Who is that distinguished gentleman over there ? " 1 said, pointing in the direction of an individual with long curly locks, which gave him the appearance of a " statesman out of a jol). " Why ! " ejaculated Cupid, in amazement, as his face beamed up like Sapolio. " that is my esteemed friend Littig. tiie champion of " Free Silver " and the " boy orator of the Patajjsco. " wlio has been crying i6 to i so long that a delegation from the trust companies were seriously considering the advisabilit}- of introducing an ordinance to amputate his voice. " I next met Xoel. who in.fornied me he had just risen from the bar to the bench. 1 was just about to congratulate him. when Cupid spoiled evervthing by saying: " He means the shoemaker ' s bench. " " Never mind ! " retorted Xoel. as his wrath began to grow into a furious windstorm, when he thought of an account Cupid had never settled with him. " You can ' t even say you own vour own ' sole. ' " " I love the truth, " said Cupid. " Yes, " replied the " repairer of soles. " " 1 suppose that is the very reason you walk on the other side when you pass my shop to keep a respectable distance from it. " Poor Cupid could stand this tirade of abuse no longer, so taking me bv the arm he escorted me oni of the liuildin " :. We walked down Baltimore street, where m} ' eyes soon beheld the colossal fireproof fiftieth-story Babel Building of the Amalgamated Consolidated L iited Trust Company of the Globe, of which Watts, the well-known financier, the able successor of J. Pierpont lorgan, holds the position of president, while Hann, the eloquent barrister, draws an annual salarv as its attorney, and Willie Linthicum plays the part of office boy. . s we proceeded farther down the street, I observed the sign of Korb. Pawn-broker. ■ ' Now, there is a progressive merchant, " said Cupid. 171 ■ ' Yes, 1 suppose he is always making advances, " I replied, as Marriott, carrying a rather large hundle, entered the side door in great haste ; " but, " I continued, " J have no use for such men because the - al va_ s prefer dealing with people who have no redeeming qualities. " VVe then turned up Charles street, where we sto|jped at the Literary Clul), where 1 met mv esteemed friend Deming, the bard of Jt)nes ' Falls, whose name he has iinmortalized by his famous l)ook of ])oems, entitled the Sad Rcflcctiiiiis of Sprin , and Alur])hy, the protege of Ruskin, who has achieved world-renown fame as an artist since his famous picture, I ' hc Arrvi d of St. Patnctc ill Ireland, captured first ])rize at the recent art exhibition at Tammany Hall, and in ap])reciation of his wonderful genius and talent lie has Ijeen repeatedly waited ui)on b - his Celtic admirers and offered the profitable and remunerative position as custodian of the peace in the Tender- loin District in New York, which he has declined many times with tears in his e es, as unworthy of such honors. I also had the pleasure of n.ieeting Sapjiington, who is somewhat of a killer among his " ladyfrens " around Eutaw ])lace, and Fountain, the Adonis of the class who seems always to be the centre of attraction to all the counter- attractions (salesladies) of Lexington street, who smile at him whenever he passes by, and actuall)- declare that he has a liyi notic charm that the_ - cannot resist, while the vast army of female shoppers which throng this favorite thorotighfare daily bow to him from all sides, until he is now com- pelled to carry his hat in his hands to avoid wearing out the brim. This favorite of nus has just been offered a tempting position by Rosenbush, the Great Price Shaver of the Female Grabljers, to pose as an ornament in his attractive windows to draw trade, which he has under consideration at the ])resent time. From the Literary Club we went to Morfit ' s famous copper museum, where we found L ' lman in all his splendor charming snakes ; Seth Linthicuni. the bearded lady, was selling her famous hair restorer and casting side glances at " Haldy " Sherbert, the glass-eater, who was consuming bottles and glass- ware of all kinds to an alarming extent in order to improve his voice, wliile Parks, the wild man of the desert, smoked his " Imd " and winked at the girls and made himself as hajipy as possible among such disagreeable surround- ings. . fter bidding our worthx ' friends good-bye, we took an automobile and in a short time we arrixcd at the ancient walls of our Ainia Muter, whicli was the same old school it had been many years ago. The desks and chairs were of the same anti(|uated pattern ; the windows jtist as opacpie as ever, while the paint, which had disa])])eared many years before we made our exit, 172 was still missing-,, which made us fetl all the more at home. But there was one that was missing, the shinmg star which had guided in all his fulgency so many juvenile minds through the lahyrinth of hazy, intricate legal conun- drums — some who have since ascended the high altar of fame as luminaries in their chosen profession — had faded away. The genial one. whose paternal smiles always radiated his angelic countenance, whose glad hand w-as always readv to welcome vou and whose eloquence rivaled that of Demosthenes himself as it gushed forth from the pure, refreshing fountain of anecdotes, was now silent ; his lips were sealed. lUu like all celehrities, his name will never be forgotten as long as his brief and succinct syllabus on Practice and PlcaJiiig passes from hand to hand, his name will be cherished and remem- bered. ( )ur l eloved preceptor, Professor L ' oe, 1 had just been informed, had departed from this world of vice and iniquity many years ago to become a seraph in the Celestial Kingdom, far away, where not many of his students, according to Major enai)le ' s pophecy, will ever go. In his place as Dean of the University was Ir ' rofessor Tazewell Thomas, . . 15., A. M.. LL. B., LL. AI., LL. D., Ph. D., ad infinitum, who greeted me with his usual benevo- lent smile and introduced me to Stanley, the worthy successor of the late lamented Professor Hall, who had also given up the ghost. Stanley was following the footsteps of his worthy predecessors and making so much noise with his vociferous, somniferous voice, as it echoed and re-echoed tlirough the classic rooms of this venerable seat of learning and industry that it sounded like the distant peal of thunder, in his efiforts to awaken the students from their weekly slumber, as their soporific voices rang out in unison, " Deo Gratias. " as Stanley made his departing bow for the day, and Nass, the boy politician of iJack River, who had the distinction of being the successor of Runge, came in to light the gas. Clark, the " massive avoir- dupois " of his class, the assiduous student of many years, was secretary of the h ' aculty, but owing to his multifarious duties of teaching Sunday school and reading the Bible, lie had appointed Dankmeyer to do his work and succeeed Chancellor Kent as acting secretary. I was very glad to hear that Dankmeyer could give me so uuicIt information as to the whereabouts of so manv of the wild Indians. To my surprise, he told me that L ' aker. the eloquent statesman, was now one of the most conspicuous figures in the United States Senate, where his speeches were always sure to draw a large crowd, and that it was through his personal influence that Upshur, the diplomatist, was appointed as Minister Plenipotentiary to Madagascar, which has since been annexed to our vast domains in order to exterminate the natives and to estalilish the spoils system. W heatley had remcn-ed to X ' ew 173 York man}- years agt), and was now prcsklcnt ut the Oyster Trust, while his facsimile J ' ord had l)een intrusted with the lives of the good people of Ferry i5ar, as policeman, to protect thciu from the savage incursions of the l)arbarous pirates who now swarmed the blue waters of the once peaceful Chesapeake. Pearre. the silent man of Western Maryland, had just been elected to Congress, where lie ex])ects to make a fortune off of his conscience in a few vears, while the erudite Aladdox, from the wide-awake City of Annapolis, wliere the people never sleep, held the high office of Mayor of that sacred city. Turlington, 1 was also informed, was making quite a mark for liimself down in the ( )1(1 Dominion with a paint l)rush, while Fairbank was rapid!}- accumulating wealth as keeper of a toll gate on the Lil)ert - road. Diven was achieving fame dealing out justice " ad valorem " under the historic shades of the famous I ' ourt Hf)use at Towson. Selden, che omnipresent man of his class, liad just received the appointment as matron in the Lving-In Mospital for i )r])hans, Rowland Slingluff sold red lemonade at the baseball grounds, Hennmg was now follow ing the sea. since his mother- in-law began to follow him, while Nice cmjjloyed his time aiuusing the twins, washing the dishes and cooking the meals, while his wife made political speeches and the living. Hut the man who is the ])ride of his class. I was told ])v .Xnstine. the dramatic critic, is Signor llascom Jackson, tiie famous bass(j, who compelled b ' douard de Reszke, Plancon and man_ - other so-called warblers, to a])andon the footlights in shame when he gave his remarkable chest notes. They say that he is exceedingly strong as Siegfried, and if Wagner himself c(juld only catch his famous note he would turn over in his grave. He is the lion of the matinee girls, who actually adore him as the humming bird of the tmiverse, and who are contintially showering upon him Howers, candies and other similar weapons. I ut, like all great stars, many of the minor lights are very jealous of him. .and he has been falsely and maliciously accused b - these envious persons of decorating liis checks with terra cotta ])aint, using a curling iron, and chewing gum to sweeten his voice, which he has repeatedly denied under oath as beneath liis dignit ' . r was next escorted to the Criminal Com-t, where the celebrated case of T} c State I ' crstts Cliff was being tried. The facts of the case were about as these : That a certain Rev. J. Henrv W ' illms, who was condtictiug a crusade against saloons, was passing Clift ' s Motel " ue .Sunda - evening after he had just f|uenclied his s])iritual thirst with prayer, when he beard two voices within shout out, " Cicsundheit. " The name being fanu ' liar tn Ids ears, he imme- diialcK ' determined to enter and as. ' ertain ho the iolators o| tlie Law could 174 Ije. As he entered, he found to his surprise two members of his congregation. Rosendale and Milleson, standing up consuming the contents of what he supposed was unadulterated beer, Init as the reverend gentleman testified under oath that he did not lcno - exactly the color or smell of beer he could not exactly say that it was such. iUit he had taken the glasses and had the contents analyzed !: }• Widner, the well-known chemist, who had decided, after much deliberation and consultation, that it was undoutedly " ■ fermented liquor. " Clift, as proprietor, testified that his hotel was conducted on strictly European plan : in other words, you pay for wdiat you get, and for that reason the said Rev. Willms very much objected. He was trying to advocate for free lunches, and because he would not contribute towards the Strawberrv Festival, where they sold claret and hard cider instead of berries, the said minister had been persecuting him ever since. Moreover, he always paid his license at the proper time, supported Miller and Hotchkiss (the policemen on his l)eat), and gave the honorable Police Commissioners Cockey and Darnall a certain sum aniuially to be devoted towards the " Fresh Air Inmd for Dyspeptics. " Rosendale then took tlie stand and admitted being in the cafe at the time, but said he only went in there U) get a glass of lithia water and was drinking it at tiic time when he was confronted bv that " " thing " ' (])ointing to the sanctimonious XA ' illms. ) Lee SlinglutT, who was conducting the case for the .State, as State ' s Attorney, assisted by Parker, objected to the reverend gentleman l)eing called sucli a disrespectful name : so after twenty minutes consumed in explaining the derivation of the word, the Court, judge Donaldson presiding, decided t i nverrule such language. The next witness for the State was J(jnes. with his famous revolving shirt front, orna- mented with a ])ink collar and a green necktie. In answer to the (|ue.stion, what he did for a living, lie said ' " he ate. " Meing no objection to that, he continued that he liad Ijeen a constant attendant at Rev. Willms church for some time, and had as.-.isted in the shouting, had alwaxs found the learned gentleman to be a man of strict integrity and. although he liad Ijeen severelv criticised for his zeal in abolishing the " " curse of man " ])v some who were jealous of his high standing in the community, still, he continued, he had known this divine to kneel on tacks all m ' glit praving for their conversion. Flere he was interrupted ])y Conrad and Willie Jack.son. representing the defendant, who incjuired of him whether he thought th.e said reverend preacher was .sane ? Upon ' receiving ari affirmative rej ly. the witness was allowed to go. Armstrong next took the stand, with his red vest adorned with polished slioe liuttons. and his congenial sjnile, which I)ursl forth from under his sandy mustaclie. gi ' ing him the ai)]ii arancc of the rising sun. 175 whereupon several cocks outside the Court House l)egan to crow. Captaui I ' .ill, as he is affectionately called hy the followers of the track, testified that he was the author of the well-known treatise. Tlic Art of Consiuiip- tion; or. The Science uf Mixing Drinks, which has heen translated into twenty foreign tongues, and that he had received the Order oif the Iron Medal from the Kaiser ; the King of Siani hatl sent him his respects ; while the Emperor of China was ahout to bestow on him the (jrand Ax. He said he was an authority on such matters, and his testimony considerably damp- ened the ardor of the Rev. Dr. W ' illms. Captain Alaloy. of the Anti-Cigarette brigade of Higlilandtow n, was next called. He appeared in fatigue uniform, the regulation dress of the regiment. The position the Captain assumed reminded one of parenthetical marks. ■ ' Stand straight ! " " growled His Honor. 1 can ' t, " replied the witness, " I ' m crooked. " ■■ Yes, " retorted the judge, " and the Court has always taken judicial notice of that fact. " He said in answer to a question put to him ])y Conrad that he had given up Coke and Blackstone to become a disciple of Kallington Booth and to abolish the intemperate haljit of smoking cigarettes : that he was thoroughly in accord with the spirit of brother Willms, and that lie considered it the dut ' of every good citizen to stipport our Christian advocate in this worthy cause. " Do vou think he is sincere ? " inqtiired Jackson. " Sincere ! " shouted the Captain, as his epaulets jjegan to waltz on his tailor-made shotilders. " My dear friend, I remember that on one occasion ihis valiant defender of water reftised to have his pictiu e taken unless it was laken in water-colors. " Do you drink ? " asked Conrad, |)ointing to the Ca])tain. At this cpiestion the Ca])tain was seen to foam at tlie mouth and take a headlong jilimge into the arms of Kllinger, the Iiailiff ' . " Water ! " shouted Dr. W ' illms, while a look of despair rested on the Captain ' s countenance. I ' randy ! " yelled Captain l ill, as Malo - at tliesc words began to revive. " Let the witness take his seat ! " yelled ! lis 1 lonor, " for. Mr. Conrad, you have pimiped him drv. " T uthardt was then called. In answer to . ' i (piestion put to him. he said " that he occtipied the important position of IJoss of tins citw and he would have no such high-banded proceedings in lliis fair cit - in a Court presided over by such an lionora])!c and efficient man. (Cireat applause from the 176 dock. J That he was sure Mr. Chft was not a culprit because he did not associate with him. but as long as he was on such intimate terms with the Judge and had cast with his own hands a sufficient number of votes to elect him, it was not what was evidence in the above case, but simply friendship, and that if the man was not discharged that he (pointing to His ' Honor), Judge Donaldson, would lose his job. The Judge was seen to tremble consid- erably as he instructed the twelve learned jurors to bring in a verdict of not guilty, which they accordingly did. The Court adjourned, and all proceeded to the reunion, but at this juncture I awoke from my afternoon nap. as the Professor was making his next assignment, and looking around I found that the disease was somewhat contagious, as I had been sitting next to Rusii. 177 Oass of 1 900, Austin, A.

S. 179 History -Class of 900 rX writing- a history of any people it is always advisal)le to state first who the - are, what they are, and then chronicle the great events wliich act as milestones on their journey through hfe. Xow, in stating- who we are, it will depend very much on the vantage ground from wdiich we are viewed. We say we are the people ; the Faculty seem to think we are a " good thing, " and the police have come to the conclusion that we are a nuisance. Ye Gods ! what a reputation is ours ! (in the police cotirts.j As to what we are is a conundrum just at j)resent. Sufficeth to say that we are a conglomerate anomaly of human particles. A haughty senior once said we were " half fish (sucker) and half fowl (crow). " " Oi course, this is base calumny and worthy of the stifif-necked generaticju of seniors, httt the trtith of the matter is, we are composed of ecpial parts of ambitious juniors and disappointed seniors. Some nia - look upon our position with ridicule, l)ut we claim to be the happy medium. Now as to the great events which have marked our progress thus far tlirough these halls of learning-. The first thing- we attempted to do was to get together, like all well-regulated classes, and elect class officers ; but as ( ur numl)er is nearly four-score, and every mother ' s son refused to be satisfied with anything less than the presidencw the attempt proved ftitile and died aborning. If there is one thing more than another we look back to with pride, it is the studious appearance and air of learning we give the library. Ah ! liow we use the musty volumes with an air of familiaritv and boiihoiiiic that makes the layman or as]iiring jimior green with envy. Again, what satisfaction we have derived from going into the senior lecture about ten or fifteen minutes l)eforc its close and, hovering around the door, comment on the class, collectively and individually, and by the lielp of those doors make the welkin ring. When we refiect on the facility wiili wliicli we can now cut lectures, gained only after long i)ractice. and again call to mind the quiz-smokers our cup of pleasiu ' e runneth o ' er. i8o Ill our first year ' s work vc did our licst tu ot}rrect the mistakes Robinson made in his book on Elementary Law. Then we considered it our duty to pick( out the flaws and glory over the mistakes made in the syllabus on Domestic Relations ; thus far w ' e were successful, Init woe is me ! for having come through the Scylla of the iirst term, we plunged into the C ' harybdis of the second term, and emerging therefrom, found, much to our consternation, that some of our number had stuck in the mud of Real Property, and a small host were lost in the devious ways of contracts. At the beginning (;f this year we returned, all that was left of us, noble Nineteen Hundreds, and liaving come so far, we sympathized with the darky who liked to stump his toe becatise it felt so good when it stopped hurting. We have so far gained a speaking acquaintance with Criminal and Testamentary Law. We laughed at all the jokes that accompany the instruction on Pleading, and now we only have Pills and Notes, Corpora- tions, Mercantile Law and Titles to pass off before this term ' s work will be completed. Of course, we will lose some of our remaining men in the heat of the conflict, but we will have the satisfaction of knowing that it is quality and not quantity that counts in our profession.

Anno Domini Eighteen Hundred and Ninety-eight, a pious and timid-looking class of freshmen assembled in the lecture hall of the " N ' arsity to commence equipping themselves for the great battle of life, or, in the words of a Highlandtown squire, " To Ijecome educated. " Some came to stay three years ; some, four, and others (if God be with them) to leave in two. Some have done it : others have not. We trust that few will imitate the latter. All started out bravely ; many kept it up. ( )ne member, after recovering from an attack of " la grippe. " sought the ]:»almy breezes of a Southern clime. Singularly, this epidemic manifested its prevalence directly after the January examinations. ( The class regrets this incident. ) As the days rolled by, the appearance of piety and fear that so markedly characterized the class on the day of matriculation, began to disappear, and members boldly and intrepidly started to agitate organization — a thing that junior classes for " time out of mind " have always attempted, but never accomplished. The Class of 1901, however, not to be disheartened by the story of its predecessors " failures, went to work in earnest, and after many adversities Mr. Harry Hechheimer (to whom you need no introduction) called a meeting to order as follows : " I have the honor of calling to order the first meeting of the Class of 1901, and having counted those present I find there is no quorum, so will entertain a motion to proceed without a quorum. " Air. Sykcs — I move we proceed without a quorum. Mr. Girdzvood (jiiiiipiiig to his feet in the greatest exeiteineiit) — I move to a point of order. Such a Mr. Hechheimer (interrupting) — Does the point of order find a second? ■(No reply.) Then it is rejected. Let us carry the previous question and proceed to elect a temporary chairman. After the nominations of Messrs. Mills and Wolfl: were confirmed by the class and further nominations closed by motion, Mr. McAfee moved for a z ' i-i ' a voce vote. Mr. Hechheimer ajDpointed six tellers, two representing each faction, as an evidence of his impartiality. Mr. Wolfif was elected by an 185 overwhclniiiij; niajoriiy, and was formall}- installed. ' TIk- cuslonian ' inaui - nral address was, however, waived by iiitaiiiiiioiis vote of the assemblage. The chair having declared nt)niinations for president to l)e in order, Mr. Snioot rose to nominate Mr. W . C. Karns of California, and he did it in language befitting " a senior ; " b.e held his audience for fully ten minutes (the door being locked and all means of escape cut off) : he declared their ])latform to consist of one plank — a silver dollar ])an(|uet. Mr. Allen (i. (iirdwood and Mr. F. X ' ictor Reinheimer were ne.xt nominated, and nominations were closed. Mr. (iirdwood adopted a v$io ])latform, l)ut Mr. Reinheimer oft ' ered to feed the class for eighty cents per caput, including wines and licjuors. It is needless to say that Mr. Reinheimer was supported ])y the masses, which tells the story in the fewest words, though live ballots were necessary before a majoritv of the class decided that " the cheapest is the best. " The fifth l)allot resulted in Reinheimer receiving 48 votes, Karns 2t, and (iird- wood 10. W ' c regret that this will go to print before the banquet becomes history. This e.xtraordinarilv precocious class " continues to wax strong: in the eyes of the Lord, " and judging the future by the past, it j romises to far outshine am class that ever graduated from the l niversity of Maryland (so far as its members that gradtiate are concerned).

(Enter Honorable John P. Poc amid tunniltiioiis applause. ) Day uei-okI ' : EXAMINATION. Mr. Poc — Gentlemen, this is the last chance I shall have of testing your legal abilities before the examination, so I shall immediately proceed without any preliminary remarks. (Applause.) Mr. Poe — Mr. Armstrong ! Mr. A. — Present. Mr. Poe — Mr. Armstrong, on what principle do the courts exempt attor- neys-at-law from giving in evidence the secrets communicated to them h ' their clients ? Mr. A. — There are two. Mr. Poe. Mr. Poe — What are they ? Mr. A. — First, because being lawyers, the attorneys are naturally addicted to falsifying ; and, second, because of the well-settled rule that " the Devil protects his own. " Mr. Poe — Well, why do they exclude such communications between hus- band and wife, Mr. Luthardt ? Mr. L. — Because it would be a useless waste of time to admit them. Secrets which husbands tell to their wives very soon becom e matters of such public knowledge that the courts take judicial notice thereof. Mr. Poe — Now, Mr. Dimarco. the case is A ' z ' s. Y.. and the burden of proof is on Y. Y offers no evidence, and X puts in a prayer to instruct the jury that there is no evidence tending to prove the fact in i.s:sue. and thai their verdict must Ije for X. Who is entitled to recover ? Mr. D. — Well, where a sheriff Mr. Poe — No, this has nothing to do with a sheriff. Mr. D. — But suppose the sheriff had not summoned the defendant ? 197 Mr. I ' oc — Well, wc are s ' oing ' on the supposition that he has been sum- moned, and that all the subsequent procedure is perfectly correct. Mr. D. — Then the defendant would have to plead within fifteen Mr. Foe — Air. Donnelly, you answer it. Mr. Donnelly — What is the — wh}- — question, Mr. Poe ? il r. Poc (repeats the question) — Who is entitled to recover ? Mr. Donnelly— Why Mr. Poe — No, X is entitled. 1 would rec(jmmend to your careful perusal the chapter relatino- to prayers, which, I am sure, in your present state of mind, you will tind l)oth novel and instructive. Xow, when must a dying declaration be made, in order to be admitted in evidence ? .1 -. Donnelly — Why, a dying " declaration must hv made — why — liefore the victim — why — for exami)le, dies. AD ' . Poe — Someone is smoking. Whoever it is, 1 wish he would discon- tinue it, as it is extremely ol)noxious to those who do not use tobacco. (Mr. Clift retires in coirfiision.) il r. Hook — Mr. Poe, if the existence I ' el non. of a hole in the ground be in issue, is it necessary to produce it in court as the best evidence ? {Mr. Poe ignores the question, and the elass absent-niindedlv hunt " gtiess that zcill ' hole ' you for awliile. " ) Mr. Poe — Mr. Nice, what is a notice to produce ? Mr. Nice — A nervy request to the other side, asking them to prove our side of the case for us. Mr. Poe — W ' ell, what is a l)ill of discovery ? Mr. Nice — A means of rubber-necking into the secrets of the opposition. Mr. Poe — Mr. Dimarco, what is a bill of exceptions ? Mr. D. — Well, when a sheriff Mr. Poe— Mr. Kines ! Mr. A ' .— Here. Mr. Poe — Answer that (piestion. Mr. K . — A bill of exceptions is a written statement, framed by a big- headed lawyer who thinks he know s more than the judge. Mr. Poe {scratching his head) — ' ou gentlemen seem to understand the subject fairly well, but your answers are hardly what I had hoped for. Now, Mr. Rice, if a client came into yoiu- otifice 198 Mr. Rice (sotto voce, icith liis eyes toivard Heaven) — God willing ! Mr. Foe (coiitiniiiiig) — To employ you to try a case for him, and after you had won it. refused to pay your fee. what action would you bring against him ? Mr. Rice (promptly ) — An action on the case. (Derisive cries of " Oitf- side ! " " Outside " ) Mr. Poe — Mr. Maloy, what is hearsa} evidence ? Mr. Maloy — A lie, which, if found out, we blame on someone else. (Enter Mr. Runge z ' itli a torch, amid cries of " Diogenes . ' " " Rubber ! " " Goddess of Libe rty ! " etc.) Mr. Poe — Mr. Selden, in a certain case, the existence vel iioii. of an inscription on the Washington Monument is material to the issue. In order to prove this inscription is it necessary to bring the monument into court ? Mr. Seidell — Oh ! no, sir. All you have to do is to cut the inscription out and bring that in. Mr. Poe — Now, Mr. Dimarco, a man is arrested for killing a Spaniard. What is necessary to be shown in order to establish the crime ? Mr. D.— Well, when a sheriff ■ Mr. Poe (velieiiieiitly ) — If you tell me anything more about that blankety- blank-bank sheriff, I ' ll soak you with this board-rubber. Mr. Donnelly ! Mr. Donnelly — Why, Mr. Poe, the case of Dinky Dink versus Blinky Bink, 47 ( )klahoma, page steen, covers that cjuestion. Mr. Poe — Why, Mr. Donnelly, 1 never heard of that case, Mr. Donnelly — Well. Mr. Poe, that ' s not my fault. Mr. Poe — Gentlemen, as the hour is up. w e must discontinue this inter- esting discourse. The examination will take place tomorrow, and judging from the answers you have given me today, I am sorry to say, I see your finish. Remember, that in an examination, ignorance of the law is no excuse. (Starts to go out, K ' hen he is stopped b Mr. Dimarco.) Mr. D.— Mr. Poe, if a sheriff Mr. Poe (as he e.vits hurriedly ) — . ' .

Gentle reader, pause and listen To the wisdom here unfolded : To the Tale of Bill the Broncho, Of his tribe down at the Law School : Many moons ago they gathered From the momitains and the valley. From the wigwams of their papas, Came they here with bag and baggage ; Hoping, waiting, cussing, praying. That some day they might be lawyers. Learned in the game of chin chin. Even so as Poe, Poe, Johnnie, Or with voice as smooth and oily As the stoic Gans, Gans, Eddie. Long they listened to the pow-wows. Till the year of ninety-nine came : Then the tribe thought of their future. And they longed to hit the war trail. And to drain from some slick clients .All the wampum in their purses. So they chose one for their chieftain — One named Brewer, known as Jimmie — And he led them to :i sheep-fold, Where each man a sheep-skin pilfered. And they wrapped them round their bodies. Thus attired they looked for trouble. And to some the road was stony ; Others found the path dead easy ; And they said, " The Law is cinchy, " In the language of the Bowery. Still some others sought their wig-wams And the grass grew round about them. Come and do some honest labor, " Cried the st|ua vs unto their jiglets. But they sat and starved in silence. Till one day they ate their sheeii-skins. And in language quite sulplun-ic They consigned their pipe-dream clients ' 1(1 ihe outskirts of Gehenna, I u the l;nid of ( iotolielln. 202 They are scattered now forever. Noble band of Ninety-Niners ; But a few called Kappa Sigmas, Ever faithful, ever faithful, Meet and smoke the pleasant peace-pipe As they swop the festive lie-lie ; Drinking, drinking, fire-water. Till they don ' t know what t ' e ' U Bill. There are Puck and Judge, the twinlets ; Next Forgetit, and the Parson ; Then from Cork comes Pat and Murphy, Hop the Hairy, Clark the SkuUion, Hay-seed OUie, Why-Why Donnie, Broncho Bill and his friend Tommie, Come like Pythias and Damon. Ah ! those braves there, they are happy. All those knockers and rag-chewers— So, kind reader, we will leave them. May they prosper, may they prosper ! ' American Notes, " by Rudyard Kipling. 203 A Nighthorse 0NCE upon a time there was a dream. The chair at the h ' rat. was very C()mfortal)le ; the pool talkie i radually faded from view, and the whirr and cHck of the l)alls l)ecame less distinct. It seemed to he Saturday night. 1 was in a crowd that did squeak and gihher. " Is this the Senate ? " 1 asked, with seeming boldness, for 1 was sore afraid. Tliere came no answer, for every eye was turned to tjue Senator from Kentucky. ■■ ( ientlemen, " he began, " I will not he able to speak nuich tonight, " and the applause was deafening, but he continued to orate, and as he spoke, some mocked, some turned away their heads, and some believed. Even as 1 gazed, the (irand Sachem banged a huge club on the high desk, walking to and fro on the dais with a step very like the gait of old Peter Stuyvesant, some time ( iovernor of Xew Amsterdam. He thus addressed his minions : ' ■ We must have order. 1 feel able to put down any unruly spirits. Indeed. I have put down many kinds of spirits today in celebration of our victory over M. A. C. " The noise which followed carried me out, and I was l)ornc up, up, up, till T landed in the dissecting room. I gave thanks for being on terra firma again, as my Lord Coke sayeth : " On a bier lay the form of a woman; . . . She did not seem as dead, But fast asleep, and lay as though she smiled. " ] eside tlie l)od - stood a youth. Great sobs shook his sturdy frame and burning tears fell thick and fast. " Why criest ? " asked 1, laying my hand gently on Ins shoulder. " ' ast a relative of thine, or. ] erchance. a friend ? " lie evaded mv (piestion. " Some dental scullion has pulled all the teeth out of my stiff ! " and he fell, (|uite overcome, into my arms. " Here, " said I, thinking to cheer liim. " take this am])utated hand and throw it ihrough that round window. It will fall on the Law Lecturer, and lie will get oft ' a joke about mortmain. " IhU he tln-usl nir rudely aside. 204 In despair I went to the Law Library, the profligate extravagance of which caused me great anguish. The student should learn to seek after knowledge ; liere it is forced on him. In this library are many rare books now out of print, which if once lost could only be replaced by an arduous search among waste paper dealers. Chains should be provided for such books, like those on the illuminated missals in old cathedrals. Yet, withal, much credit is due the librar - in that it strives to treat all writers with equal favor, rich and poor, good and bad. A forcible example of this is the library Blackstone. which is comprised of one volume each of Chitty and Cooley, thus avoiding all appearance of favoritism. This will do away with that petty quibbling which is so shocking among writers of books. While still investigating, a cheer so loud as to wake me was given, for the " blase old rounder " had made a point in bottle pool. _r Or-it- — Hv ' On His Honor. 265 Song of the Shirk. After Tom Hood, (Several Laps.) With ihoughts of girls in liis head. And pleasures forbidden to him. He wades knee-deep in his law-books, With eyes blood-shot and dim. Cram, cram, cram, While his room-mate lies in his bunk ; But as for him, no rest is nigh, For he must cram or flunk. Bone, bone, bone, While the morning draweth nigh ; And bone, bone, bone, Through volumes musty and dry. ' Twere better to be a policeman And flirt witli the servant maid, Than to get a nmsty sheep-skin And be so poorly paid. O, clients with money to burn ; O, juries so hard to convince ; ' Tis not all lawyers who earn enough To live in style like a prince. Bone, Ijone, bone. Through libraries wide and deep. While honest men are home in bed Enjoying refreshing sleep. For while the grind was working He wasted the hours in play ; Poker, baseball and hock " ey. He studied night and day. Cram, cram. cram. With prospects dreary and lark : Cram, cram, cram. To get a passing mark. 206 For now he lias " cold feet, " R. E. Morse sits by his side. It ' s oh ! for the lectures he has cut. The quizzes from which he ' s hied. Then grind, grind, grind. O ' er maxims of Equity ; And grind, grind, grind. His finish we can see. Oh ! but for one short beer. With foam however deep ! A raw-beef sandwich on the side And onions in a heap ; A llowing stein would ease his nerves, Bring rest unto his brain ; But work he must in smoke and dust. And sing this sad refrain : Bone, bone, bone. Through libraries wide and deep. While honest men are home in bed Enjoying refreshing sleep. (7. } ' .

In the Baltimore City Court she had the air of an injured one, and her answers to questions on cross-examination were pert and bordering on facetiousness. In response to a question as to who appeared before the Justice, she replied : " The plaintilT, my witness, the plaintifif ' s shyster and myself. " " Was not the Justice there ? " queried the cross-examiner. " Justice ! JU.STICE ! " she almost screamed. " There was no JUSTICE there. I came here to get Justice. " 209 The Study of the Law as a jfraining for the Mind. QXE of the great advantages of studying law is the cultivation of the faculty of mental analysis. The average layman has no conception of the effect produced by this habitual training of the mind to observe closely, to define distinctly ; to look under and over and around every o])ject and subject submitted to it. Yet this is the training devised and applied 1) - the L ' niversitv, and which must ha achieved !)}• the student before he is fitted to take a champion ' s ])lace in tlie great intellectual arena. Thus trained, one can see beauties and solve mysteries never noted before in the simplest problems or situations. Whatever meaning, sentiment or purpose lies concealed in a sentence heretofore regarded as barren and commonplace reveals itself to the trained analytic and argumentative mind. In evidence of this I will give orie simple illustration : When 1 was a boy, the first reading less(jn I came to after learning to spell words of two syllables, was a description of a " good boy. " It undertook to tell the little reader what a good boy was, and liow to be cherubically good, and the first sentence so impressed itself upon me that I have never forgotten it, although at that time — m - mind not having been developed and trained for the legal profession — I read and remembered it only in a general arid superficial sort of way, without enjoving its intensity and force as since revealed to me. This description was : " A gocjd boy eats what is set before him. " ' It was a brief I)Ut l)eautiful sentence and calculated to stimulate the average boy to a faithful imitation of the ])aragon described. T have lived religiously U]) to the qualification, and am, therefore, entitled to speak u])i)n the subject. Now this is the way a lawver woidd look at it : Thus, the sentence is : ■ ' A good boy eats what is set before him. " Who does ? " A " good boy. Xot " " the " good boy, or any particular, definite, individual boy ; but " a " good boy ; that is, any and every good l)oy. It a|)plies to all boys who aspire to goodness, and not to the single good boy of the school known to voti and me. who always smelled of mutton-tallow and died young. 2IO Uut it is not only " a ' " boy, but a " good " ■ boy. It is the ' • good " boy who is an expansionist in a quiet, solemn and serious way, for that kind of a boy has very little other happiness. He is usually very sedate, wall-eyed and sorrowful, as if his goodness oppressed him. and is revered and despised with equal intensity and enthusiasm by his classmates. But further : A good what ? A good • ' boy. " ' Not a girl or a sissy-boy. Just a plain, every-day boy : or as a philosopher describes him. a • " biped without feathers. ■■ and he should have added, with a vermiform appendix. Now •• a good boy " does what ? He • ' eats. " He doesn ' t drink. He simply inserts nutritious pabulum into the denticulated orifice below the nasal protuberance, which being masticated peregrinates through the castil- a inous cavities of the larvnx and finallv is domiciliated into the receptacle for digestible particles. No v. he eats " what ? " Whatever comes to hand or mouth. He is omniverous. He is indifferent. He eats " what. " which is tantamount to ' ■ whatever, " and shows his utter and abject devotion to duty. He eats what " is " set before him. Not what was or may be set set before him. But what " is. " It is the present that he deals with — not futures. It is the eternal now that appeals to his obedient and submissive appetite and enables him to distinguish himself by conforming to an agreeable qualifi- cation. He eats what is " set " before him. It must be right there ; still, solid, stationary, substantial. Xot on the run : not grabbed and hustled away. But what is voluntarily and safely and comfortably " set " before him. Xow. set where ? Set • ' before " him. Xot behind him or on either side of him. It must be right in front of him. where he will be up against it m good shape, so that he can use his knife and fork properly and gracefully. It must be on the side his mouth is on. for a good boy is not otherwise described as active enough or sufficiently accomplished to eat backwards. It must be before whom ? Before " him. " It must not be before another bov or a bad boy. for if it is. his goodness would not be in it — nor would the goodies be in him. Thus it is that legal studies discipline and train the mind to analyze, dissect and examine every syllable, word and sentence, and to brmg out beauties and meanings in infinite variety, where the commonplace and undis- ciplined mental motor would glide superficially over the surface. Even behind or within the simplest subject or expression lie concealed thoughts, ideas and suggestions which only the legally trained mind will detect and disclose. 211 Prof. Baer ' s Story of Mike ' s Partition of a House.

HE Court of Appeals has formulated rules to guide the Board of Law Examiners of applicants for admission to the Bar, under Act of Assembly, passed at the last Session of the Legislature. The Exam- iners are Arthur George Brown, of Baltimore ; John S. Wirt, of Elkton, and I ' enjamin A. Richmond, of Cumberland. The rules read as follows : I.

The petitioner shall also file a certificate of a judge of the State in which he was so admitted or a certificate from two members of the bar of this State certifying how long they have known the applicant, and that he is not a person of bad or dissolute habits, but of good moral character, and that lie has never, so far as known to the person or persons certifying, been guilty of any criminal or disgraceful conduct, and that he is, at the time of such certificate, a member of the bar in good standing, and that he has been actively engaged as a practitioner or teacher of the law, or judge in such State for at least five vears before the filing of his said petition. 213 (c) If the petitioner shall not apply foradmission as a nicniljer of the bar of another State, the petition shall further state : That the petitioner has studied law in the office of a member of the bar of this State, or in a school of the I ' nited States for at least two years, and while so studying the law, he diligently pursued the course of study prescribed by Rule 5. The petitioner shall file with his petition a certificate from the member of the bar in whose office he studied, or, if the petitioner studied in a law school, a certificate from the president, dean or any instructor of such school, certifying that the petitioner has pursued under his direction for at least two years the coiu ' se of sttuly prescribed in Rule 5, and that the petitioner is not a person of bad or dissohite habits, but of good moral character, and that he has never, so far as known to the person certifying, been guilty of any criminal or disgraceful conduct. The certificates hereinbefore provided shall be prima facie evidence of the facts stated in them. The petition shall be filed at least ten days before the day fixed for an examination by the State lloard of Law Examiners. 2. All applicants for admission to the l)ar, including members of the bar of other States, shall pay a fee of $25 at the time of filing their petition. No petition will be considered or referred to the State Board of Law Examiners until said fee is paid to the treasurer of the said lioard. 3. All applications for admission to the bar of other States shall be referred to the State Board of Examiners, who shall examine the applicants as to their qualifications to practice law. 4. The Board of Law Examiners shall meet twice annually, once in the month of June and once in the month of November, at such place in the State of Maryland as said lioard may determine, for the ptirpose of con- ducting such examination. Tliirt}- days ' public notice of the time and place of n:eeting shall be given. The said court shall hold such meetings for the ])urpose of conducting examinations at such time and ]:)lace and on such notice as ma - ])e directed b - the Court of Appeals from time to time by- special orders. 5. All examinations shall be in writing. All a]:)plicants shall ])e examined by said Board ( n each of the following subjects : ( ) b ' lemenlarv Law, (2) Contracts, (3) Torts, (4) Wills and the . dministration of Instates, (5) Corporations, (6) Evidence, (7) Equity, (8) Real Broi)crty, (()) Per- sonal Pro])erty, (10) Criminal Law, (m) Domestic Relations, (12) IMead- 214 ing and Practice at Law and in Equity, at Common Law, and in Maryland, (13) Constitutional Law, ( 14) International Law, ( 15) Legal Ethics. The Hoard may, at its election, in addition to the wriiten examination, examine orally any or all of the applicants. The State Board of Law Examiners may prescribe rules for the conduct of examinations, provided that the applicant be allowed at least six hours in which to prepare the answers in the written examination. 6. The State Board of Law Examiners shall, as soon as practicable after such examination, file their report. They shall file with their report a copy of the questions asked and all the replies. The report shall also state the conclusions of said Board, as to the qualifications of all applicants, and shall recommend in the case of each person examined that he be or be not admitted to the bar. 7. The names and places and residences of all persons recommended by said Board for admission to the bar, shall be pul)lished once a week for three successive weeks in two daily newspapers published in the City of Baltimore, before the day fixed for the ratification of the report of the State Board of Law Examiners. If no exceptions are filed to the report of the Board of Law Examiners within thirty days after their report is filed, the recommendations contained in the report shall be adopted, the action of the Board ratified, and the appli- cants admitted or rejected, as recommended by the Board. If exceptions to the report of the Hoard shall be filed, such exceptions shall be heard and decided by the court. In case the exceptions shall be filed to the recommendation of the Board that any applicant shall be not admitted to the bar, and the exceptions relate to the qualification of the applicant to practice law, no new examination will be held, but the exception heard and determined on an examination of the applicant ' s answers to the questions asked him. If the exception relates to the moral character of the applicant, the exceptant and the applicant shall have the right to produce evidence in support of or against their exception before the court or liefore an examiner appointed for the purpose of taking the testimony. 8. When it shall l)e determined by the Court of Appeals that an applicant is qualified to practice law and is of good moral character, an order will he passed directing that he be admitted to the bar on taking the oath required of a member of the l)ar In- the Maryland Code of Public General Laws, Article 10, Section to. 9. The members of the Board of Law Examiners shall be entided to the sum of ten dollars per day for every day actually spent in the discharge of 215 llieir duties, and all their tra ' t. ' linii ' and Dthcr expenses, jjnivided the fees and expenses ui said lioard vhall not exceed the sinn paid by applicani.s as fees. Order of the Court.

O the members of the Dental profession who have been in practice some years it is unnecessary to say that the instruments and materials made by The S. S. White Dental Mfg. Co. are of the highest class. They know it, and the very liberal patronage we receive from them is the best evidence that our efforts to always produce the best are fully appreciated; but every year there are many hundreds of young men graduating in dentistry, and to them especially we desire to make a few sugges- tions. Naturally, every one would wish to furnish his operating room and laboratory with the best instruments and appliances the market affords. We think there will be no difference of opinion about this. There is only one inducement for the dentist to accept anything but the best— that is the inducement of cheapness. When two articles having the same general appearance are offered, and one at a very much less price than the ether, the desire to secure a bargain is always awakened, and the inexperienced are often led to make purchases which when put to the test of use they find to be bargains for the seller and only a " sell " for the buyer. Now here are some facts for consideration : Beginning at zero fifty-five years ago, the business now conducted by The S. S. White Dental Manufacturing Co. has grown to its present dimensions. This increase has been a steady progress year by year, every year showing a gain, until now the volume of sales is greater than those of all the other manufac- turers of dental goods in this country. We do not say this to merely boast of success, but to enforce two points upon which it has a direct bearing. All these goods have been sold to dentists, who, by education and practice, are not only experts in the use of them, but are expert judges of their qualities. Could this uniform success, continuing for more than a half century, have been attained if the products of this Company had not been of superior quality, and at least as low in price, when real value is considered, as any similar articles made elsewhere ? Giving due weight to this evidence, it is hardly necessary to say more in regard to the quality or price of our manufactures. Look for our Trade-mark. That is our guarantee that the fidelity to the interests of our patrons which has made our success in the past, and which has been so generally appreciated by the dental profession, will be our rule of action in the future.

Special instructions in Continuous Gum, Bridge and Crown Work. Each year, since its organization, has added to the reputation and prosperity 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 gratified at the ability shown by the students when operating upon patients in the Infirmary. Forming one of the depart- ments 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 University affords, cannot 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 prac- tice, and the oral surgery clinics. vii Tlic Dental Infirmary and Lal)oratory 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 im])roved operating chairs. The Dental Infirmary and T.a1) ' )ratory are open daily (except Sundays) during the entire year, for the reception of patients, and the practice for dental students has in- creased to such an extent that all the students during the past sessions have had an abundance of practical work, in both operative and prosthetic 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 jjatients 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 (lualifications for initiation 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 seven months each, in different years, at the REGULAR or V in- ter sessions in this institution. As equivalent to one of these, one course in any repu- table Dental College will be accepted. Graduates of medicine can enter the Junior Class. The matriculant must have a good English education; a diploma from a repu- table literary institution, or other evidence of literary qualifications, will be received instead of a preliminary examination. . 11 students, both Freshmen. Juniors and Seniors, have ecjual advantage in ojierative and mechanical dentistry in tliis institution throughout every session. Graduation in iledicine — Graduates of the Dental Department of the Univer- sity 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 May ist. 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; Matric- ulation fee, $5; Diploma fee, for candidates for graduation. $30; Dissecting ticket, $10. For Summer Session, no charge to those who attend the following Winter Ses- sion. Board can be obtained at from $. 50 to $5.00 per week, according to (luality. The University prize and a mnnber of other ])ri ' es will be specified in the annual catalogue. Students desiring information, and the annual catalogue, will be careful to give ftdl address and direct their letters to F. J. S.

Instruction will be jriven by lectures, readin(, and catechising. The lectures are intended to present nil of the leading principles of the common law applicable to the subject, and the modifi- cation of the common law by statutes, and to give illustrations of the applications of the common and tlie statute law. Special attention is given to the statutes in force in Maryland and to peculi- arities of law in that State, where there are such : but the reasons for these statutory modifications and local peculiarities are expliiinefl, so that the student may in a short time accjuaint himself with the local peculiarities of the law in any State in which he may practice. Readings from text-books will be assigned on the subjects treated of in the lectures. The Catechising at each lecture will be on the subject iliscussed in the preceding lecture and on the assigned readings. LIBRARY AND BUILDINGS. The buihliags of the several departments of the University of Maryland arc all situated upon the corner of Lombard and Greene Streets, the Law School having removed to its new building there on the first of Jantiary, iSS,). Connected with the lecture-hall is a large and pleasant reading-room and stu ' ly for the use of students, containing a carefully selected library of te.Kt-books upon the subjects euibr.ieed in the course of study, volumes of Leadiiig Cases, the English Common Law, I ' nited States and Maryland Reports, Digests, Statutes, etc., as well as many of the modern and best works on American and English History and Politics. The tables are siip;)Iied w-ith the prominent Law Reviews, and the library is anuunlly growing in size and value by the addition of new yolu nes.
