Charles S. Richardson | () I ' ROFESSOR CHARLES S. RICIIARDSOX. who to most all of us 11 . has been a friend, counsellor and guide, the Senior Class of the Maryland Agricultural College affectionately dedicates this, the eleventh volume of the Reveille. I rofessor Richardson was born in Snow Hill. Md.. in 1869. He graduated from the Snow Hill High School in 1886, and after graduation took charge of a grammar school in Delaware. He was then made principal of the (lirdletree (Md.) High School and remained there several years. He then entered the study of law under Clayton Purnell. Esq.. a member of the Snow Hill bar. However, having a decided preference for literary pursuits and work in the educational field, he went to New York and took up the study of bdlcs Icttres and oratory under private instructors. He also took courses in physical culture at the Yale School of Physical Culture at Lake Chautauqua. He was then for four years principal of the Snow Hill High School, and in 1897 ' ' ' ' s elected to the chair of Public Speaking and Physical Culture at the Maryland Agricidtural College, besides instructing the Freshman classes in History and English. The degree of A. M. was conferred upon him in 1006. Professor Richardson is very popular with the student body, taking an active interest in all their affairs, especialy in athletics. He took a prominent part in the formation of the Maryland Intercolegiate Athletic Association, of which he was the first secretary. He is also a well-known lecturer on technical English before educational bodies and colleges. PROFESSOR RICHARDSON Officers and Faculty of Instruction Faculty R. VV.

Morris was born in December. 1887. at .Maple Grove. Somer.set County. Maryland. The foundation for his vast fund of kno vled,; e was received at Rehoboth . cademy. In iSijy he removed to Princess Anne, entering- the high school there, and graduating in the spring of i )04. it is needless to say. with high honors, being ' aledictorian of a large class. The folic iwing fall he directed his steps to the Maryland Agricultural, and en- tered the distinguished class of 1907, in its sophomore year, taking the civil engineering course. .Morris is one of our great orators, l)eing chosen orator for Class Day last year, as well as one of the debaters with Delaware, both tliis and last year. 1 le is a great admirer of the fair se.x. his ready wit always making him a favorite. Of late he has been .going ' to ' ashingt(in (|uite often, and it is ])ossihle that he has also been smitten by Cupid ' s arrow. As a commissioned officer, Adams is liked by the student Ixnh ' and held in high esteem by his company. Morris is very ])opular with the students, and we all wish him a lung and successful life. 14 liuwAKD Ali;XA. I)Kk Blair. First Lieutenant Company C, r.altiniore, .Md. Civil Eiii;iiiccriiii;.

" Wiggles " — this piece of humanity was born on November 21, 1887, at Irvington, a surburban town of Balti- more. He attended the public schools of this town imtil he reached the fourth grade, when he went to Balti- more and entered the schools of that city. Just before the time for him to be graduated from the high school he left this country to study in Germany. Returning the following year he en- tered Maryland Agricultural College in the fall of 1902. Owing to sickness in his sophomore year he was forced to drop back to the class of 1907. Since " W ' iggs " has become a mem- ber of the Class of ' 07 he has had to take but very few examinations ; how- ever, this is easily accounted for, for he is natiiralh ' a bright l)o ' . " Wiggles, " as manager of the foot- ball team of 1906, arranged a very creditalile schedule. It was on Commencement Da - of last year when " Wiggs " was first smitteu with that imdying ])assion. love. When he returned in the fall he would weary of the com])anionship of " 1 licky " and wander off to see his loved one. Last fall " W ' iggs " took an examination to enter the Revenue Cutter Service as a cadet. It is needless to say that he jiassed. " W ' iggs " left us the first of that November, but has made trecjuent visits to College as well as Rixerdale, since Uien. " W ' iggs " was very ])o])ular with the students and always the leading spirit in the Class of ' 07. He has been president of our class since he came to us in our sophomore year. We all wish him nnich success. 15 WiLLiA.M AlI ' KKu XAiK.xii LiowLAXD, Secoiul Lieut. Co. A, Kingston, Aid. Alcchanical Engineering.

" ISig Guard, " or lx tter known as " ilickey, " accidented himself into this great world of ours on tlu- 12th day of Xovember, 1885. Little Hd the natives of Kingston realize what a great miracle had been performed ; little did tliey dream at the time that this small piece of humanity would some day be one of the bright stars illuminating the bright firmament of the " Eastern Sho ' . " But lo ! such did come to ]3ass, and we are proud of it. It was in the fall of 1904. having drunk the cup of knowledge of Som- erset County to its dregs that Dowland was welcomed to the Maryland Agri- cultural College. " L.ig Guard " was very popular with the boys during his college course. This fact is very much evidenced by tile number of offices he held, and he deserves credit for the ease and pro- ficiency in which he filled his worthy and numerous positions. l ' ow!and played " guard " on the ' varsity football team for three seasons, and to sav that his work along this particular line was of an excellent character is but a mild wa - of ex- pressing the wide known fact that he was a good all-round football man. Resides being a good military man, " Hickey " is quite a society " belle. " It is due to this fact that he was unanimously elected president of the Rossbourg Club. As such he showed marked ability in successfully managing social functions. The dances given this year under his auspices have been mvich enjoyed. The Class of 1907 wishes our subject all the happiness and prosperity that can be possibly crowded into one life. lO LiU.iii Dii ' ;( ' .u Caim;stan ' , Thinl Lieut. Compan_ - C, Ciri!

Little he was, hut the people of that city had wide expec- tations, and their e-xpectations have not S ' one astray. After ulitaining " all the knowledt e that the public schools of that place could t;ive him, he decided to come to this section of the United States to complete his education. It was in the fall of I j02 when R().g;ilio Lilio Diego landed in the great city of Baltimore, and after studying the English language with a preiwratory course at Deichman ' s for two years, he entered tlie so|5homore class at the .Maryland . gricultnral College, and soon was able to say.

" Alec " always would study — when he did not go to Hyattsville — or when no one else studied fur him — so b}- his industry he kept pace with the rest of his classmates. " Alec " is a mihtary man.

He attended tbe pulilic schools of Prince George ' s Comity, and also the Clinton High School. When they could teach him no more he entered the Maryland Agricultural College, where he has made a record both as a student and as an eater. It was while trying for this last record that the members of the football team, of which lie was a valuable member, gave him the name bv which he is so well known to us. " Hog, " like the majority of us. is fond of the ladies .and has never been known to stag a dance at Al. A. C.

Holloway, alias " Ed., " was born in Baltimore, Maryland, Jan- nary 1 8. 1886. He lived in that city for .seven years, when he changed his place of abode to the beautiful fields and sweet iareezes of f rince George ' s County, and finally settled at Rosary- -ille, Maryland. lie attended the public schools of that vicinity and was well known as a hrioht scholar. In his desire to fur- ther his educational ])ursuits, he en- tered the freshman class of Maryland .Vgricultural College in September, 11)04. Edwin, being very energetic and studious, completed the freshman and S(i])liiimiire classes with the highest honors. Me is a very close adherent to the college rules and his name can ver ' seldom be fdund on the delin- (juency list. " Ed. " also made quite a record in th.e Jttnior Class iti spite of the many obstacles encountered in the Department of Physics and Calculus. It was during this period of his life that he made his debut in the realm reigned over by the fairer sex. To this fact we contribute any " back-sliding " in his scholastic iluties. for he was very faithftil and ])rompt to the calls of Cupid. Besides such pleasures, Edwin is a very ambitious and stern ymnig man. and when duty calls he is always there with a will. If he continues iiis i resent record we are sure that liis life will be a success. and our Alma Mater will be pnunl of such a son. We wish him ever ' treasure and success that life has iia store for an ambitious young man. 22 .Mark An ' i ' iki.w llrnsuN, Second l ieut. C(inipan_ C, Slni-ktiin, M(l.

" Whenever he was detailed to be O. D. on Saturday, away he would go to find some of his classmates and appeal to them with the same old ex- cuse, " Will yon go on O. D. for me Saturday?

He was ca])tain of the fnnlhall team in loon. |)laying iialf-l)ack. . fti.r leaving high schocil he was in the employ of a business firm for three years. It was during this time that he was in the throes of that awful passion, love. He came to Alarxland Agricultural Colle,ge ho])ing that the diver- sion might cure him, but his case seemed Impeless. He would sit up until the wee ' hours of the morning, writing long letters declaring his sincrrity and ever- lasting love. It all came to a dramatic end, however, and we are still in the dark as to the jiarticidars. He, too, has a special at Ilyattsville, but old memories make him a cauliuus lover. His career at . lar land . gricultural College has been a most successful one. 1 le cajjlured the Jimior medal, and as the last classical graduate, we are ])roud of him.

His first notoriety was gained from the way he played " hookey " from the pub- lic schools of Baltimore. It was while on one of these expeditions that he saw a crowd of cadets in AI. A. C. uniform, and as he had about finished the course in the public schools, he decided that he would go to the Mary- laiul Agricultural College. Accordingly, he entered the portals of this institution in the fall of 1903, and started in to learn the scientific methods of farming. During the soph- omore year, however, he became so infatuated with the assistant professor of chemistry, that he finally decided to devote his life to chemical research. iM-nni the progress he has made in this direction he bids fair to become a second Liebig. During the Junior }ear he and his old side partner, John Lether Showell, other- wise known as " Shike, " kept open house. Their apartments were always thronged with students, and never for an instant did they feel the lack of hospitality and good-fellowship. ' ocke dealt out tobacco with a lavish hand, and " Shike " kept up a continual flow of melody on his guitar. But although ' ocke was famed for his hospitality, he still kept his high place in his class, and when the study of German and Chemistry was taken up, it was he who safely steered the class through the mazes of intricate compositions and constructions, which can be found between the parts of a separable verb. Stanley has the quality of combining a good disposition with great determina- tion, and we bespeak for him great success in his chosen profession. 28 Harry Dugani: ' ii,liar. Jr..

When we look back oxx-r our career we are at once reminded of the main " trials and tribulations " we have encountered: yet the ' were happx- da s. To those who have never experienced it. I will sa ' it is impossible to realize the Iee]) feelin,q " of regret we have when we bid adieu to our friends, oiu- Alma .Mater and its surroundintjs.. Owing " to some unforeseen circiniistance. it ha]ipened that in the fall of ii;i this great bunch of no1)le minds, " mushroom heroes, " as we were afterward called, matriculated at this institution of learning. As Freshmen we numbered forty-eight, and com|)ared well in e er |iarticular to other Freshman classes. ( )f course, we receixed our share of the " paddle, " and in some cases perhaps more, for some of our number (in getting their revenge out on the under classmen) have been inclined to make use of the instru- ment from their first day as " old boys " until June in njoj. Time wore slowly on. but during the year we eventually took part in all athletics, and were well repres ented on all the teams. June examinations finally came and great indignation burneil within us. that we should ])ass them all ami become full-fledged Sophs. When school reopened the following Se] lember, ami the threshold of . 1. . . C. was again darkened by our presence, we were surprised. et overjoyed, to see a large number of Ijriglit looking . oniig fellows to take the places of those we had left behind to get a more thorough knowdedge of the l ' reshinaii studies. . t once we started on a remarkable career that will be remembered for ages to come. We numliered forty-five, and in many instances was it demonstraled to the world how those forty-five stood in unison, following their renowned leader and brushing aside every obstacle which confroule l them. It was during the first term of this -ear that we established die " honor " svstem in classroom and examination wurk. . s usual, the |uiiior lollowed our lead, and in a few weeks had established the sanu- tiling in llieir class, 31 Tlie class football game was pla}-ed with the Juniors, but it was somewhat of a fake. The Juniors, from lack of nerve, would not play the second half, thereby not allowing us to demonstrate fully our ability as football players. One night during this year we visited a little village named Hyattsville and woke up a certain Cobb in the midst of his slumbers. He immediately extended to us his hospitality and locked us very securely behind the bars. By a little demonstration of applied mechanics We were all soon free, . nd back just in time for reveille. Easter and June " exams " were successfully passed, and tiie following Septem- ber found us nearly all back. Hardly had we started on nur year ' s Avork when Death visited us and took from our number a well-beloved friend, whose place can never be filled. We contributed very generously to athletics during this year, being creditably represented (jn all the teams. At this stage of our career we had begun to realize for what purpose we had been sent to College, and were ever striving toward the attaimnent of that end. ■ Ml the examinations were successfully passed and we were fully equipped to assume the responsibilities of Seniors. ( )wing to various causes, our class has dwindled down to fifteen in numl)er. While this is (|uite a decrease from the original number, yet, great or small, we can .say that we have done all in our power to raise the standard of College life. ( )ur Senior year has passed without a blemish. We n nv find it the most difficult ijniblem of (lur College career to bid adieu to the many friends we have made within these walls. ( )nr academic course is finished, and as we leave this little College world to go out into that greater world of life, we bear with us the greatest feeling of gratitude for our Alma Mater, and many pleasural)le memories of the hapjiy days that have ])assed. r lt ?

Imbued with the devotion of the faithful, they toiled up the dusty cinder path, weighted drnvn liy bulging dress suit cases and the still more depres- sing dignity befitting their exalted position as Juniors, to be greeted by the wearied remnants of the summer colony left Ijehind them in June. Hopefully we entered upon the strenuous work of the new year, reduced to thirty in number, for some had fallen by the way. others among thorns ( So])ho- mores), and one especially gifted had fallen on good ground as a high school instructor in Kent County. To console us for their loss, our strength was aug- mented bv the addition of AI. A. C. ' s two star l)i)arders. the chief consolation of our worthy steward ' s precarious existence.- Early in the fall our beloved ' ' Pug " sought higher education in aesthetic P.oston, and with him went the sincerest wishes of the Class of Xincteen-eight for his prosperit}-. From that same intel- lectual latitude came a would-be candidate for the Junior Class, but the conclusion was soon reached that seven feet of that brand was quite enough for our class. Xow, having chronicled onr return, we will, dreek fashion, recount our remarkable achievements as Juniors. For a second time, under the leadership of our class and sujjported by six of our membership, the " Aggie " football team swejit the gridiron of her opponents and won the intercollegiate championship of Maryland. In more than one hard-fought contest Captain Cooper and our " dear little Byrd " won fresh laurels for ' 08 and their Alma Mater. Having accom- plished this much, it is obviously oiu " duty to hold the hard-won lianner for the year remaining to us. As we figured prominently in last year ' s baseball season, we hope to jjrove our worth in the coming spring campaign. Nor must we pass over the fact that at a late hour we revived the time-honored Junior-Sophomore football game. Having at last persuaded our opponents to lay aside their fears and enter the field, we scored on them to the tune of f to o. in spite of their plucky 42 defense. In fact, our ilevotion to athletics caused the absence of lea(hng spirits on Hallowe ' en, which resulted so disastrously to the umirganized excursion to ITyattsville. For under systematic direction that reckless frolic might have ended .nore satisfactorily to all concerned. In another field we have sought distinction with gratifying success. Last spring we established an annual Sophomore Elocutionary Contest for the purpose of developing active interest in the course of elocution. A varied and lengthx program was presented that has set a high standard for future occasions. Still ringing in our ears is the elociuent argument of our classmate, who as a Sophomore (the first ever to win such a distinction) carried off the . Iumni medal for the best debater in competition with three upper class men, and in spite of a favorable decision to his opponents. But lately a " silver voice " has been discovered in our midst. We also rejoice in the possession of a collaborator, a critic, and have even sent a live professor to instruct the benighted folk of Kent. With such talent and genius, who will venture to say that Xineteen-eight will not produce worth ' successors to those who have had the benefit of a classical course. We feel that we have measured np to our social traditions as Juniors, having formed remarkable social habits. Washington and Hyattsville have as strong an attraction for Juniors as of yore, for Thursday nights in town and daily " jihones to the " ville " seem to have become indispensable to some of our membership. Whether it is alread} ' " for better or for worse " it is not for a discreet historian to say. In the midst of such social distractions our scholastic standing must not be neglected. Rumor has it — and rumor sui ported by fact is pretty reliable — that many records will be broken in all lines of study, and that standards will be set up to last for many a year to come. For we have broad-mindeil men who can descend from the heights of calculus and explain its mysteries to a ten-year-old child. We have seers who, untrammeled by present regulations, foresee that insteail of two or three roimds of ammunition, now customary, we will in the near future fire ten. We have men who completed zoology in one term, and wliose minds are so surcharged with evoliuionar - knowledge that involtnUarily such learned ex])ressions as " sycon gelatinosum " and t;elia symmoniiles, " though they are totally imiocent of their real meaning, roll forth from their burdened lips at the slightest provocation. We have men to whom chemistry is as an open ( ?) book, and among these celebrities is a certain authority commonly known to us as " Fess. " The mysteries of advanced physics and " loo]) the loop ' are but ])leasant ])astimes for us. In short, we consider ourselves unusually gifted, and hope til eon ini - others of the fact. 43 The long-expected has at last happened ! M. A. C. has become " co-ed. " on trial, and we are to have the benefit of the innovation. ( )ur fair classmate is specializing- in tlie culture of flowers, and although this subject has hitherto held interest for the horticulturists only, who are inclined to be jealous of their pre- rogatives, we as a whole class feel a deep interest in floriculture, even to those who dwell in the depths of the machine shop, and fervently hope that the vocation of floriculturist will not lose its attraction for " our Miss Darling. " With our close proximity to the Senior year, we feel more than ever the value of a satisfactory record, the necessity of maintaining our high standards in every line, and that dut} ' calls upon us to labor with more definite and active interest for the honor of i()o8 and the welfare of the Maryland Agricultural College. Let us ever hear in mind nur ini]ierative motto, " Artem pete finem, " and having decided on (lur end. stand fast and ac(|uit ourselves like worthv and honorable gentlemen.

W ' e were ushered in alxnit fifty stnuin, but with all our good looks and good (jualities we were given a name as we passed through the door, and. after getting settled, we found we had each been named " Rat, " which was ver)- gently ( ?) enforced ui)on us. The Class of ' 00 was not at all backward, so we settled down to business, and when the various de])artnients of athletics called for volunteers we were right there and furnished several good men for handing the pigskin around. Football season over (which, by the way, was very successful). Thanksgiving Day overtook us, and though we received but one day, it was very welcome. The time between Thanksgiving and Christmas soon passed, bringing us a much-needed and looked-for holiday, which was s])ent at our homes, ' e were not homesick, for the Sojihs. cured us of that. The Yuletide over, found us back again with itractically all our full force, and all of us talking basketball, in which ' 09 was ])articularly interested, and furnished several good men for the College team. Spring soon put in its ap|)earance, and the College cam])us was coveretl with boys carrying bats and gloves, for now baseball was all the go, and the College team was doing good work, ably assisted hv ' o() in material work and rooting. Then came the final " exams. " in June. ( )ur first year of College life was over, and we became duly and honoralily accepted Sophomores. The summer having sped by with its many ])leasures and memories, the follow- ing Se])tember found us again within these dear old walls, a throng of lusty, laughing boys, wearing smiles that any stranger could not have mistaken for anv other than that of the boys of the Class of ' 09, for we were now Sophomores in every sense of the word. We extended a fraternal welcome to the " babes " of igio. We had little time for a general welcoming, for we soon found ourselves face to face W ' ith our hard though ]jleasnat duties. We went right to work at these duties, and made things lively, as did several of our favored classmates on the SO gridiron help to send our opponents flying. Man - of our classmates helped bring the waving silken banner once again within the walls of M. A. C. Little excitement occurred until that all-eventful llallowe " en sluiwed its face upon the calentlar. Though time will nut allow the retelling of an old story, as [ am sure it is to all. it simply was an example of the good-will and generosity of the Sophomore Class in helping along the State campaign fund. Approaching Christmas and hard work kept our minds well occu]iie(l; time soon passed by, and .soon we were wishing each other a Alerrx- Christmas and a Happy New Year for the second time. Those nuich-dreaded Christmas " exams. " over, and with man - pleasnat remem- brances of our Christmas holidaxs. we came liack much invigorated, and got at once to hard study. There was little of unusual occurrence during the long winter months, except now and then an invitation was extended to the " rats " to attend a sociable gotten up for their special benefit, and which kept them from getting too homesick. Now as the time goes by we are thinking of the sjiring. bringing with it that fine sport, baseball. . s usual, ' 09 will be well represented on the ' Varsitv team, and we are sure they will do their best to bring another banner to M. A. C. Track work is ocupying the minds of some, and we expect to see several ' 00 men bring honors to our class on Field Day. One of the chief thoughts of not only the Sophomores, but of all the students, is of our ])roposed trip to the Jamestown Exposition in June. We are all looking forward to having a good time, and bringing back the greatest credit to our Alma Mater. The Rr; ' i ' ;n.i.i ' ; is just going to press, so this brief history nurst be concluded. As we are a])proaching the time when we shall be Juniors, and will then enter upon new duties, we must say good-bye to our friends and admirers, and trust we ma ' meet them next vear. J. F.

Our eager eyes, as we alight from the train, are turned with expectation toward the group of buildings, half hidden behind the leafv Ijranches of a grove of noble oaks, that mark the site of the Alaryland Agricultural College. With quickened steps we hasten along tlie cinder walk that borders the grace- fully curved driveway leading to the College. ( )n our left are the tennis courts ; on the right is the Experiment Station and the campus, upon which so many of the Class of 1910 were destined to gain renown in the glorious encounters which characterized the football season. A lofty flagpole, from whose masthead floats the Stars and Stripes, lends a military air to the place, an impression whicli is confirmed as we draw nearer the College. :;; :|: :;; :;: :;: :i i]: :}: ' ' When we were fairly settled in our new home it was found that the Freshman Class ri)ll included the names of fifty members, who had doubtlessly been lured from tlieir homes l)y the various catalogues and bulletins distributed throughout the State by the President and Faculty of the institution. It is needless to say that when the Class of iijio assembled for the first time within the halls of M. A. C. the casual observer would have found nothing very remarkable in the ap]x ' arance they presented. For the last fifty years each succeeding fall has witnessed the introduction of a new class into the Maryland Agricultural College, and the only distinction that we can truthfully lay claim to is that of being the last to enter the insti tution. I will not, therefore, attempt to deck the simple annals of the Freshman Class with such useless praise as foregoing historians have seen fit to lavish u])on their respective classes. If we are deserving of praise our actions will show it. If not, tjien it is useless to attempt to cover up the defects witli mere words. :;; :|: t- :{: -i: Naturally, the first thing to do, after being fully convinced by the members of the Sophomore Class that we were really collegians, was to call a class meeting, elect our officers and adopt colors, a motto and a suitable yell. This proceeding was strenuously ol)jected to by the Sophomores, but in spite of this opposition the 54 to O 2 s X a: Freshman Class, stormed at by chairs and brooms, perfected their organization in a very satisfactory manner — satisfactory to us, that is, not to the Sophomores, as they were destined to have those colors flung in their faces and our green and white banners decorating the auditorium at the first dance given by the Rossbourg Club. Jl: ;: i|« ; : After the fears and misgivings attending our first week at the College had worn oil, and we began to find pleasure in the companionship of other members of the student body, the time passed by so quickly that before we reaHzed it prepa- rations for a suitable celebration of Hallowe ' en were engrossing the minds of our classmates. The height of our ambition was far from being reached, when early morning of November ist found nearly all the members of the Freshman Class in the lock-up at Hyattsville. The bailiff, remembering, no doubt, the Hallowe ' en of several years ago, took the precaution to provide himself with deputies and an armory. The result was that we were nabbed before we had time to wake up even a few of the slumbering inhabitants of the town. After a sleepless night a psciido trial was held and each prisoner fined $3.75. Among the crowd of boys that returned to the College tliat OKirning there were some very tlespondent faces, the owners having misgivings, no doubt, as to the manner in which a formal demand for the fine would be received by the people at home. :{: :1: : :ii ' i : : : -Y- :! After our Hallowe ' en escapade the class, realizing that they had been sent here for a purpose, buckled down to their studies like men, and, as a result, a com- paratively small number failed in the Christmas " exams. " :;: :;; :[: :|: ij: ' [: :;: :|: The Christmas holidays were longer this year than usual, and the class returned after New Year ' s thoroughly refreshed and ready for work. A damper, however, was thrown on our enthusiasm at the outset, when we received the intelligence that several of our classmates had not returned. Among these was by far the most popular man in the class, our president, Mr. William Canby. :i: :i; ' !: :[: i|: i}j The absence of a class president made it imperative that another election be held, and again the class showed its good judgment by electing Mr. Evans to fill the vacancy. And now, gentle reader, we will leave the Class of 1910 toiling upward in its endeavor to excell in every department of its work in the College. We will try to forget past failures, to give them full credit for what they have accomplished, and lio])e that the} ' may have as bright a future as noble eft ' orts ever merit. HlSTQRI. N. 56 Prep.

C. sporting life. Gee ! Ijut the grub is good down in this place. Feller named D ' =:vilbliss gained 20 lbs. the first term. Guess that is going at it some. ' Member that clam- bake we had down on the shore? Tastes like green ' simmons along Cab ' s goose and turkey and Doc Mac ' s pullets. Gosh ! heard fellers gobbling and sweating feathers for a week. Talk about walking the chalk line, you just had ort to go to a military school. The old hedge-hog we used to go to school to up there in Mane wouldn ' t care if you come to class with a Forty 4 in one hip and a dek of cards in tlie other. All you can do around this place is smoke and chu on the sly. But, say, I got wise to a nu kind of segar — the kind tha t Bommey smokes — Sawlogs Stogeys. Bommey is the perfesser guy that loks up simplyfid speling. He ' s a boss ! Down here we have to march everywhere we go. There ' s one big guy here called Sekshun Marcher. He ropes in the bunch. ' hen I came back last fall all the fellers wanted me for S. M. I wasn ' t much stuck on the job, but they all said I was the ( )nly man for it — ' count my carage. don ' t yu know, so collared the job. Wen a feller gets to be a Junior and Comniy makes him a dog sargent he tiiinks he ' s the whole show. Once when we beat for class the swell- headed gu s bucked us in the doorway and one crazy geesor yelled, Going thru, but tliey didn ' t much come thru, they mostly went out when old Stiff the feller that blacked Lun ' s eye went thru them like one of Doc Eversfield ' s katha rtics. Did I say we were sports? We got a feller in our class named Newman, only he ' s made over. He ' s a swell, pushes an awto and is a crak shot with his Daisy air rifle. He killed a sjjarrow once. Talk about Diamon dick ! We got a regular Hero of the Quarter Deck, a feller that went around the world and come back again. He can speak every language l)ut English. We got a Beauty tu — a regu- lar Sunny Jim from the mountain called Trimble. He mostly blushes. Say, athletics wouldn ' t be nothing here without the Preps. We got a feller that coached the Sbecargo nationals. He ' s like Wadell onl)- his name is Twadell. He 58 made a triple play unassisted onct — before he came here. Rut look, thi.s is hitting it up too much. Where are you going to be about the first of June? Commy says we are all going to Jamestown for two weeks. Gosh ! I wish you could be there. We ' d pante the place red. How ' s everything up in Mane? How ' s all the girls? Say, if you ever come down this way ask for the Preps. Everybody knows them. Got to go now, for shure, mus call my roll now. So long. Sport. Your old Frend, ClI. RI.V. 59 Miss Darling m fISS DARLING, our fair and only co-ed. She is from Wasliins;ton, and is taking a course in floriculture. As she is studying with the Junior Class, the}- have presumed to claim her as their very own, hut we insist that she belongs to us all. So sweetly beautiful, so beautifully sweet, so demure, so daintily feminine is she that we all reverence her, we all adore her, we all love her, and we are sure we would all die for her if she would only give us t!ie chance. Oh, lovely co-ed. ! Our only co-ed. ! We bow before thee — " Earth ' s noblest thing, a woman perfected. " 60 MISS DARLING Military College Life HE uni)arallck ' (l pmspcrity of this country in recent years has a very iPly eloquent exponent in tlie nuniher of colleges and universities which have been established and which have enrolled in man ' instances a j reater number of students than even their founders anticipated. The Captains of Industry are for the most part men of limited education, or have gained it by sacrifice and strenuous effort. Mindful of this want, or remem- bering those struggles, they are willing to utilize their wealth to foster higher education of all kind s. Nor has the Federal Government been inert, for at least one agricultural college has been organized, under National auspices, in every State and Territory in the country, with the view of intelligently developing our natural resources. The increase of college students in this country in the last three decades has been ])robably five times as great as the increase of the population during the same period. Have the methods of education and disei])line improved and advanced in a corres])onding ratio? Can the college of t(.)day meet the demand for the training of this great ])halan. of stuflents? In training of mind it undeniably can ; in classics, belle-lettres and pure mathe- matics there has been no step backward, while in scientific and technical training tlie modern college is far superior; laboratory methods, improved facilities for original research, co])ious libraries — all these make it obvious that the methods and means of mental education are astl ' im])roved. In molding the student ' s character; in exercising discipline: in encouraging and teaching self-control — are our facilities e(|ual to the demand ]ilaced upon tlu ' in .• ' The lio leaves the |iareiit;d roof where likeh his hourly tasks and pleasures have been an object of care and solicitude by his parents. l ' ,ntered in college he nmst think for himself, if he never did before; he must act upon his own voli- tion, in other words he musl leaini among other things what the great world is like. 63 In some cases close association and parental supervision upon tlie part (if the professors retards development, in other cases it accelerates it. Xo youth should be sent from the parental care until he has developed suf - cient initiative to take care of himself, in other wi irds to do his own thinking; ' . Even g-ranting that this postulate has been com])lied with, great is the problem of training boys into men where students are living in dormitories. In a number of colleges the military system, or that of cadet control, under sui)ervisi(Mi of the faculty has been tried. For nearly forty years this has been in force at the Maryland Agricultiu ' al College and we ma} ' refer t(.) the latter as a type.. L ' nder the terms of our Federal aiiprojjriatinn we are re(|uire(l to give a mini- nnun of three hours ' drill per week: all other military duty and training is at the discretion of the College. Now, the policy of a college like ours, which maintains a military barrack system analogous to that of the National .Military Acadenn ' at West Point, has its critics as well as its advocates. The objections as they occur to me may be summed up as follows: (1) It (barrack life) su])presses individuality and destroys initiative. (2) It is irksome and repugnant to students who are imbued with a consuming desire to utilize their time in stuily unliampered by " assembly, " " taps. " " guard mount. " etc. (3) It affords an fipportunity U an unworthy cadet officer to ]3ractiee tyranny and to humiliate a student wantonly. (4) It is unnecessary exce])t for those who are to follow the calling of a soldier. (5) It distracts the student ' s mind from the real motive in coming to college. W ' e must dift ' er with our critics both as to |)remises and conclnsiim, and to continue in reply seriatim — ( I ) There is some ground for this objection, at the same time a }oung man of merit usually impresses his worth no matter how disci mraging his environment and the advantages of barrack life far overbalance this remote defect. (2) This objection, if analyzed, is really an argument in favor of the militar ' college, for the latter moderates excessive stmU ' which in man cases is detri- mental to the student ' s health, and it inserts into his dail_ ' life an hour of rational exercise ; it makes imperative regular hours and instils habits of punc- tuality and onk ' r which are sn often wanting in the civilian. {3) Instances of martinets as cadet officers are so rare as to be remarkable: no cadet of proper spirit will brook persecution by an officer, and the student 64 z o H H OQ U X H sense of justice, wliich, if snnietimes obscure to a layman, is usually correct, soon makes sucli an officer an object of unpopularity. (4) If the only motive in cominc; to college is to jierform mental work under competent instructions. 1 grant that the barrack Hfe is a distraction; but if we consider that in addition to this one learns the lessons of manly intercourse, ■ iiiifailiiii:; courtesy, and modest denienuor. then we must admit that barrack life is well calculated to inculcate that esf rit du corf s which make the named qualities attainable. (5) To be sure so long as we have peace but few of oiu " cadets will enter the army, yet the ability to perform a soldier ' s part in war, and to live a patriot ' s life in peace — the first a contingency, tlie latter a duty — both are available if you have profited by your military training. The physical aspect of military training is very important — regular exercises, irksome to many and hence often neglected ; regular hours, the exception with the youth unless insisted upon; habits of system and neatness which rarely come of their own accord — all these are not only encouraged but really instilleil into the young man who takes cadet life in earnest. We make no claim that the education and training by miHtary colleges is per- fect or even approximately so. but we maintain that it .s ' subject to fewer defects than an - other for stuilents who have not yet gained a sense of the perspective of life, whose balance wheel is not yet adjusted, whose character is yet in process of formation.

To swipe or not to swipe — that is the question ; Whetlier ' tis nobler in the mind to suffer The pangs and agonies of outrageous hunger Or to swipe a dozen pies or so, And, by eating, end them ? To swipe, to steal No more ; and by a theft to say we end The hunger and the thousand natural cravings That flesh is heir to — ' tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished. To swipe, to steal — Perchance to be caught — ay, there ' s the rub : For in that theft of food what things may come When we have just got out the pantry door Must give us pause. There ' s the respect That makes calamity of so long abstinence: For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The steward ' s wrong, the big chiefs reproach, The pangs of being wrong, the law ' s delay. The insolence of office, and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes. When he himself might his desires satisfy With a measly pic? Who would burdens bear. To grumble and growl and do without? But that the dread of something after theft. The undiscovered watclnnan from whose grasp No student ever escapes, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of. Thus precaution does make cowards of us all, . ' nd tinis the native line of resolution Is sicklied o ' er with the pale cast of fear, .

Ask the [ ' aiittcr, and lie will tell you that it is a pleasing lan(lsca])e or (he glury nf a setting sun. Ask the iiiiisician, and he will claim that heauty is the harmony of sounds — the grand melody of Beethoven ' s symphcmies or the wonderful notes of Patti ' s matchless voice. Inquire of the sculptor, and he will say that beauty resides in the graceful outlines of the human form, citing as examples the Grecian slave or the immortal ' enus of Milo. Ask the question of the philosopher, and you will learn that he finds beauty in the wonderful harmony of Nature ' s laws, and in the discovery of Nature ' s secrets in both the iihysical and s])iritual world. And perhaps the miser would see beaut ' only in his shining gold. So we discover that beauty exists in the eye. or ear. ir mind of the one who contemplates it. and cannot be defined as a quality exact and definite in its nature. Hut beauty, whatever may be its nature, whatever may be its cause, is the greatest and grandest of all the .gifts of God, and fortunate indeed is that man whose appreciation of the beautiful is sufficiently keen to enable him to realize the highest sense of enjoyment from the manifold beauties around him. The starlit sky at midnight ; the silvery, soulful moon ; the glory of a setting sun ; the landscape, marked l v running brooks and embroidered with bright-hued flowers ; the ever-rolling ocean as it breaks in glittering foam upon the beach ; the entrancing influence upon the soul of a mighty organ as it peals forth its inde- scribable harmony of sound — all things are different forms of beauty. And if beauty means all this, then beauty is the blessing of heaven showered ujion the lives of men. P)eauty ennobles and elevates. Peauty influences and controls. Heauty is all and in all, the indescribable, intangible spark of divinity that lights the souls of luen. There is Iteauty of sound, heauty of color, beauty of figure, beauty of coun- tenance, beauty of soul — beauty on the land antl on the sea — lu-aut}- everywhere. There is a power in beauty which exerts an influence upon all who behold it. It charms, fascinates, possesses us. We know that it exists : we see it and hear it and feel it, yet it baffles descri|)tion and cannot be adec|uately defined. To a 78 certain extent it is the result of training, jesthetic training. For the king of the cannibal isles would perhaps liave found no special beauty in the face and form of Cleopatra, yet to Alarc Antony the glow of her cheek and the light of her eye were more attractive than the glittering crown of a Roman king. Of all beauty, that which is most indefinable, and yet most transcendcntly attractive, is spiritual beauty — that beauty which throws a halo of glory around purity and innocence, and blooms in the garden of the soul. As far as human beauty is concerned — " the face so wondrous fair and match- less form " — its power and influence in the world cannot be overstated. The beautiful woman commands at will the souls of men. Thank God for our power of appreciation of the beautiful. It is the one bles- sing given alike to the rich and the poor, and can bring pleasure to the peasant in his humble cot as well as to the king upon his throne. And let us cultivate this appreciation of the beautiful, so that all of the har- monies of nature may strike a responsive chord in our souls and fill our lives with happiness and peace. C. S.

A. Grason 80 c wo YEARS after the resurrection, as we may say, of the ] Iercer Literary Society, a new society was organized through the efforts of Pmf. K. II. Alvev, who saw the advantages which would result to the literary work of the College in having another literary society. The birth of this new society canu- in 1894, and it has ever gone under the name of the Morrill Literary Society, in memory of Senator Morrill, the great benefactor of Agricultural Colleges. Ever since its organization the Morrill Literary Society has done fine nrk. worth}- of ])raise from every one wlio has heard the arguments in debates and tlie declamations put 1) - its representatives. In late years this sociel has made llie College proud of its literary work, buth at Imme and -from abroad, and has raised the literary standing of the I asl year was chosen from the Morrill the orator to represent our (. " ullege against St. Jolin ' s Washington and Western Mary- land Colleges in the eighdi annual contest nf the ( )ralorical Association of .Maryland Colleges, held at Washington College, and he ilid us. as well as the whole College, 8l the honor of bringing back with him the medal for second best oration. In the debate for the Alumni medal, our society again carried ofi the honors, our repre- sentatives getting the decision of the judges and one of them winning the medal. This year, as well as last, both the debaters for the fourth annual debate with Delaware College were chosen from the Morrill Literar - Society. Last year they ]int up a very creditable argument against their o])ponents, and this year they made us happy and honored by winning the debate and the banner. The President of the Society is proud of the work which has been done by the memliers this year. The meetings have been held more regularl - than ever, and all have been entertaining, instructive and beneficial. Let us hope that the enthusiasm shown this year, which has surpassed that of previous years, will continue as long as the Morrill Literary Society shall e.xist. Especial mention must be made of the names of I ' rofessors Richardson and Bomberger, because the high position we have reached in debating and oratory is due in great part to the ever-ready assistance and unlimited co-operation of these two zealous advocates of the best that may be in oratory and literary pursuits. I may say that the good work and attentive interest shown by the new members has been of great value to the progress of our society. This has inspired all the members to maintain our leadership in the literary matters of the College, and will bring back new material and more strength to lead our College to victory in all the contests we mav have in the future. 82 New Mercer Literary Society J- A.

It made very slow progress for twenty-eight years, and in 1889 it ceased to exist. For two years literary work in the College was dead for the want of a leader, but in 1892 Mr. H. C. Sherman, ' 93, then a student of the institution, seeing the great need of a society, reorganized it. and became its first president. Under the .supervision of this great leader it continued to thrive for several years, but in 1897 it again needed assistance, and was consequently helped to its feet again by the Class of ' 97. From that time onward the society has developed to be one of the largest organizations on college record. Thanks must also he extended to Prof. Charles S. Richardson, who for several years has been extending a helping hand whenever needed, and who has at all times been the ready man to ]iromote its cause. Our meetings, which are held on Friday evenings, afford a rela.xation and refreshment to be obtained by no other means. The greatest handicap which con- fronts the college man of today is the lack of power of expressing his thoughts clearly, correctly and concisely, and this is just what the society is correcting. Two or three men are chosen from the society each year to compete with Dela- ware. Western Maryland. St. John ' s and Washington Colleges, and these men have oft returned with honors, banners and prizes, which are not only appreciated by their College mates and societies, but by every one connected with the institution. This institution does not present or give to the student body anything which is more essential to the success of every man in this period of enlightcmnent and progress than the two literary societies. 84 If a mail desires to enter his life ' s wurk as an instructor, an eng-ineer, a clicmist, or in any other branch of professional life, there is nothing more advantageous than to be able to express his thoughts in an easy, clear manner, so as to l)c fully comprehended by everyone. What good is a college education tn a man if after graduation he preside at his own club meetings, cannot deliver a three-minute speech, or even make a motion before a house correctly? The men of ability today are literary men. No man can reach a high state of excellence without it. During the past year the literary work, under the supervision of Mr. Bowland, has made more progress than in previous years, and has some good material to uphold its standing in annual duel with the Morrill Society in June. May every member of the society, faculty of the institution and each succeeding class lend a little energy in advancing its progress. If this be done, tlie New Mercer Literary Society will in the near future stand as a stone w ill. which cannot be pierced by any shot delivered from another society in the State of Maryland. U. W.

( ireen 88 Rossbourg Club Sfc MID tlie earnest woes, the trvin,e: tribulations and the seemingly ceaseless nLJ routine of studies which crowd around the sometimes dreary paths of the • ' students of M. A. C. — drear paths, indeed, where the face and figure of a beautiful girl are seldom seen — their souls at least a solace hath, in dreams of the coming Rossbourg dances. In all characteristics of college men, there are three traits to consider — the mental, the physical and the social. They are inseparable in the true and high bred gentlemen, and if in the collegiate training of a youth these three ideal ele- ments are attained and absorbed into his personality, his success is assured. The scientists of today say that we have not completely emerged from the state of rudeness and unpolished personality of our Teutonic ancestors. No better cure for this cumbersome inheritance can be foimd than by mingling in social gatherings, and in our own college world there is nothing better than our Rossbourg Club, which goes far in transforming this inherent nature into modest refinement and grace of manner. The social side of our nature becomes broader and more enlightened, and all the gallantry and gentility of our person shines forth in our hope to leave a favorable impression when in the company of cap- tivating and entrancing ladies. The charming girls, the rythiuic, harmonious tones of the music ; the fragrant odor of the beautiful flowers, all combine to ])enetrate our better natures and to fill us with gayety and hope. When we assemble in our ballroom and glide noiselessly and smoothly over the iwilished floor with the little girl of our choice in our arms, and who, in all the sweetness and gentleness of her nature, with soft and dreamy eyes looks a dream of paradise, a world of love and sweetness into ours, our thoughts ri,se from this dreary world of dull care and weariness into the land of romance, which is the fairyland of beauty, love and hope. The Rossbourg Club was instituted in the College in i8gi ; its founder and first president was Su i ' enn. of Corea. In 1892 the Club was greatl - im] roved, Cajjt. Sylvester allowing us to have otu ' dances in the College hall. In the tail of 89 1904, the Rossbourg Club moved its quarters to the new hall, a large, airy room in the Administration Building, which had just been completed. During the past year the ilecorations have been much more attractive than usual, owing to the adoption of class corners. The Rossbourg Club extends its thanks to all those who have helped to make the dances of this year the successes they have been. 90 Officials of the Y. M. C. A. 1906-1907 C. H. Harper President. E.

A. meetings and the active energy with which its members participated in making them a success, promised most hopeful results for the present year. On the opening of the scholastic season the accom- panying activities of our Y. M. C. A. were, as has been customary since their inau- guration, formally commenced with the annual reception of the new students. The faculty, with their wives, attended largely, and the afTair served as a happy intro- duction between them and the -new recruits to the student body. In a brief but impressive address of welcome the President, with his usual sincerity, encouraged the old and future members to aggressive activity in the Y. ! I. C. A. work, pledging his hearty support in the society ' s advancement. On the following Sunday the tirst meeting was held, at which our President outlined the purpose and nature of the work for the year. A most gratifying fea- ture of this year ' s progress has been the active interest taken in the meetings by the new men, and it argues well for the future of the Association when its interest is actively perpetuated from year to year. A more systematic schedule of leaders and topics for discussion has been followed with marked success, and as a result the interest in the work has become more general, while a larger portion of the membership have become less reserved in expressing their various opinions on the sub jects discussed. We believe that this free exchange of ideas is essential to the permanent life of the Association and that its beneficial results will be lasting. During December we received a visit from Mr. Slack, the International Secre- tary of the East, and plans for more organized and extended work were discussed with him, several valuable suggestions being offered. In fact, it was at his instiga- tion that the Association at once took steps to revive the P ible study work after a lapse of two years. The Association hopes by adding this educational branch to its activities to supply an opportunity to those who wish to acquire a more thorough knowledge of the Bible and its literary value, and at the same time to create interest in the Y. M. C. A. A large number have already subscribed to the course and fruitful results are anticipated, not only for tliose engaged in the Association meet- ings, but for those less actively interested. 92 Being at present in a fairly flourishing condition, the Association expects to send delegates to the several conventions connected with its interests, and hopes thereby to derive valuable aid in promoting its usefulness as a Christian body. At the present time delegates to the conventions at ISaltimore and Hagerstown have been chosen, and instructive results are expected. We confidently hope to send two or more delegates to Northfield, and desire to have our College represented in assembh ' where the leading spirits of our organization will be congregated and from whom we may receive new inspiration and life through our representatives. We believe that in the faithful attendance in the past we have a soimd basis for future growth and expansion of iuHuence, and sincerely trust that liy persistent and imflagging activity we may arouse widespread interest among our fellow- students and succeed to the high ideal of our Association ' s founder — that of making our Y. M. C. A. the strongest " team " in College, ever striving for ])urer morals and cleaner manhood. 93 Bible Study Groups Cooper Grason C. H. Hakpek. Leader. Pope GilluTt Coster Gorsuch W. C.

Far-seeing edncators have realized that only the best results can be obtained where the physical side of a man ' s education is developed as well as the mental: that to train a man ' s mind at the expense of his physical well-being is to brand him as a failure almost at the verv threshold of life. The universally acknowledged principle of college edu- cation now is the equal development of the student along these parallel lines : making them not antagonistic, but having these two influences work tugethor in harmony for the common advancement of the student ' s welfare. College ath- letics nearl - everywhere meet not only with the approval but with the co-oiiera- tion of Faculties and Boards of Trustees, provided they are not indulged in to excess, and are free from the taint of ])rofessionalism. M. A. C. mav well be pnuul nl the ])osition she has attained in athletics. Every man who is a member of any team which represents the College is a bona fide student in the strictest sense of the word; and he is not only a liona fide student, but he must be an amateur, and free from any taint of professionalism. Since this establishment of this strict standard of absolutely clean athletics M. A. C. has made a record which is unsurpas.sed l)y that of any other college in Maryland. She is a member of the Intercollegiate . thletic Association of Mary- land, and we are proud of the two banners which hang in our trophy room, repre- senting the championship for the past two years, on the Intercollegiate gridiron of Marvland. The new constitution of the Association, which provides for a ery high standard of amateur athletics, has met with the unanimnus ap])rn -al nf the student body, proving that clean athletics meets with the heartiest commemlatinn of every student connected with the Maryland . gricultural College, This is exactlx ' as it should he. llnw nnich more can we enjciy the fruits of a victor ' which we know was gained fairly, with honest men and with honest eltort. than one gained by taking an unfair advantage of an o]iponent, or by playing men whom we know are not bona fi le college students and wiio may or may not lOI be professionals. A triumph oajned by these means takes away all real enjoy- ment which the result of honestly directed effort and honestly directed means brings to us. Let us preserve and maintain this high and honorable standard of college athletics. Let every man connected with the institution, whether a member of any of the teams or not, use his whole influence toward the furthering of this praise- worthy ideal. We should feel honored to belong to an institution in which athletics are placed on such a high plane, and we should be proud to belong to teams representing our College when we know what membership on any of our teams represents. Every man here receives a s(|uare deal in trying for a team, and every team we play receives a square deal in whatever contest they may engage in with us. So long as this very laudable condition of affairs exists we shall never have to blush for our College, and we shall have the great pleasure of knowing that whether in victory or in defeat M. A. C. is noted for its high standard of amateur athletics. 102 ( ® 4 r r» In football the Maryland At;-i-icultural CollcgX ' is recognized as the champion of Maryland colleges. In past years the standard of our athletics, especially football, was low, but in the fall of 1904 we suddenly awoke from our subordinate position and have climbed to our ])resent high standard. The past two years we captured the banner of the Intercollegiate Athletic Association of Maryland in footljall. Xone of the colleges played defeated us, while We held the L ' nitcd States Xaval Academy down to the small score of twelve points. The prospects at M. A. C. for the coming fall wouhl appear to indicate that we will develop an eleven e(|ual to those which have represented this College on the football field in the past. While M. A. C. in the past two years has been able to occupy a position which has gained her the rank of first in Maryland, it has been possible to do this in an institutinn ha -ing but alx iut two hundred students only by dint of the hardest kind of work, the thorough application of business methods and system to everything afifecting the team ; the selection and direction of coaches, construction of schedules to fit the needs and development of each individual team, and last, and perhai)s most important, keeping the team free from the shadow of suspici on of its amateur status. That M. A. C. has been able to accomplish this is naturally a source of pride to the alumni and undergraduates. This year, while the loss in number will he very slight, the team will suffer seriously by the graduation of Bowland, right tackle, and Firor, full-back. Jami- son and Ruffner, who did sterling work in the line, will also leave College this year. There ' s good raw material left, however, and the team will not be seriously handicapped by losing the iQofi stars. 104 Football Schedule for Season of 1906 Date. Sept. 29, ( )ct. 6. ( )ct. 10.

There was a time when the college relied entirely on the baseball team for its honors in athletic soprts. Since the advent of our victori ius footliall teams the baseball teams still hold their own, although thev do not stand alone as an . 1. A. C. sport. Last year ' s college team was the best team of bona fide students in the State of Maryland.

We are hindered to a certain extent by having no indoor track for winter practice, but when we appear on the field in the s|)ring we do so with the determination to make up for lost time. Our principal meets are the Intercollegiate Athletic leet held in Baltimore, Maryland, and our local Field Day Meet. We are now laboring hard for our team to represent us at the former meet. In this we intend this year to show our sister colleges that we have a track team as well as football and baseball teams.

Game HE annual and miist interesting game of football of the season was 41 , ])et veen the Juniors and Sophomores on December 4th. As a result the victory floated to the Juniors — score 6 to o. The teams were well matched. This was due, however, to the fact that some of the experienced Junior pla ers stayed out of the game. Was it not a good thing? It is evident that the score would have gone far into the hundreds had not these Juniors stayed out. What a shame it would have been. The Juniors tried their open plays, mass ])la s and trick ])lays, but the luck all fell to the Sophs, who accidently held the Juniors at the proper time. This saved them from a disgraceful defeat. From the time the pigskin first sailed into the air the game was exciting as the sturdy Juniors pushed and tram]jled the Sophs under their feet. It was from one of these wrangling masses that faithful " Hawk " seized the oval ball and, planting it beyond the goal, he snatched a victory from a possible defeat, making the score 5 to o. To this the ambitious (|uarterback of the Juniors added a jjoint bv sending the pigskin flying over the goal. The score now standing 6 to o, the timekeeper said " Time up. " The Sophomores, though a little indignant, quietly retired and said nothing as the Juniors yelled for joy. The Junior flag now floated high while the flag of the Sophs trailed in the dust. The two teams lined up as follows : Sophomores. Positions. Juniors. Whiting right end Wilson. Kloppmeyer right tackle Jamison. Holloway, J right guard Somerville. Badenhoop center Hoshall.

I2P The Maltese Cross J All Souls ' night is at hand ; the ilread honr draws near when the restless spirits of the dead hold xigil over the mournful scenes of their de])arture : when the guilty hoiuieide stands face to face with his acousing Xemesis : when each household crowds ahout the smoldering emhers, whispering in terror-stricken tones wierd tales of ghostly adventure : when hy Hickering candles frightened maidens jieer intn dim mirmrs lor their true lo ' es. and the sleeping wurld lies under its mystic s])ell. The crimson rays of a sinking sun cast their dying light nn a lileak headland jutting niu from the wild, rugged coast of llrittany. Dark storm clouds charge across the horizon and settle in dense masses (jver the dreary ])romontory- The moaning sea surges ceaseless!) ' against the hattered cliffs: a clammy fog rolls u]i from its lieartless hosom over the scarred crest and envelopes the desolate summit in a ghostly shroud. Two lonely figures toil up the steep ascent and reverently jiause hefore a huge weather-stained symbol of the Christian Church, its gnarled arms strangeK ' out of proportion to its height — a Maltese cross, the sad monu- ment erected to those who have met a sudden or violent death. Hut hark! a hell tolls in the hidden illage helow — ' tis the angelus. . l its first sad notes the two wavfarers fall on their knees before the cross. .V fi-iglUened gull darts out trom its nest l)elow and circles with wild cries above them, finall vanishing into the in |)enetrable fog. The bell ceases to toll: tlie ])rostrate worshi])ers rist ' , and hurriedlv light a huge iron lantern, hoisting it to the lofty ajiex of the b;i) ' e ligure above them, h ' rom tiine to time they glance limidl - behind them. . t what. ' . few ])iles of looseK ' hea])ed up stone anil rough unpolished slabs hidden in the ])i " own .sedge? Yes: for there lie the untorlunates who met a fearsome death in the merciless breakers helow. Ten vears ago, this same ill-fated night, a noble galleon in sore distress and closeh ' ])ursued bv a swill, raven black pri aleer fonndered on ihe Heath ' s Cu]). a |)arliall - hidilen ledge that had lured many a gallant shi|i to an nntinu ' ly fate. Shattered 1) the tire of her merciless enemy, die i;reat ship broke to pieces an l sank with everv soul on board while a teri ' itic gale held the bra e fishermeii in I. ' 9 check, the maddened waves hurling back tlieir staunch craft. The strange brig had vanished but two niglits later, four armed foreigners entered the isolated hut of Adam Beniot, placed a curiously carved chest in his keeping and forced him by the most solemn oaths to promise the immediate erection of a Alaltese cross on the wild promontory, the placing of a warning light on its topmost point and the Christian burial of those who were cast ashore. Terrified by his masked visitors, Adam readih ' acceded to their solemn injunctions and so they left. The good silver in the strange chest promised Beniot competence for life but sad vicissi- tudes followed his sudden prosperity, his beloved wife died in child-birth within the year to be quickly followed by his eldest son Gabriel, the greatest pride of his life. Now Beniot, no longer the light-hearted fisherman but bent with sorrow and sickness, kept his sacred vow assisted by young Gaspard. Their work done, tliey hastened anxiously down tlie perilous cliffs to the sands below. The great light cast an unearthly glow over the silent graves, the yielding fog wound in fantastic forms about the crumbling stones while gaunt and grim the Maltese Cross reared its tragic form, a rough testament to the rougher fury of the moody sea, unburdening its guilt-laden soul in a deej) and direful dirge. Out at sea the wind was rising. Pitch black clouds brooded over the foam- flecked waves, lashed tn fury by the stiff breeze: rising and falling, faster and faster with rapid pulsations of jiassion. Suddenly over the heaving bosom of the sullen sea. a dark, sable craft, riding the tossing crests on the wings of night, swept on its lonely course over the wild waste of waters. Buffeted by the angry sea, it sped along under bare poles, plunging through the swirling billows, a fit com- panion to the tumultuous elements surrounding it. From the naked foremast flew the ship ' s ensign, a wliite Maltese Cross on a sable background, truly a fitting standard for such a mysterious craft. In the shadowy gloom revealed by the glint of the waves, the low, rakish form of a privateer became visible. What was its ])urpose oft ' the wild coast of Britany, alone, without lights and sailing under an unknown flag? The muftled roll of a drum rises from the foredeck ; indistinct figures gather in silent haste: the dull clang of arms is heard, and at a low command the assembled ])arty takes up its march, halting in its rounds to post the night watch. One after another the men fall out and at length a single steel-clad figure casts a brief glance at the troubled sea, the threatening clouds, and passes below. At a heavv door he knocks and enters. Mere the wild lilackness of the night is succeeded by a deep gloom e(|ually jjronounced but more subdued. At the end of the low-studded cabin extended a wide bunk built securely into the ponderous framework. To the right a tall, deep-sunken mirror relieved the bare wall and opjjosite a massive mahogany table was stationed strewn with charts and records supporting a richh- 130 wnniLjht clianilclicr of aiUi(|iK ' hrcmzc in which stood four c (|uisiu-l inolilcd wax candles. . stroiii iy conslnictwl caljinet, with hijjhly pt)hslied silver moiiiit- ings, evidently once the treasured possession of some grandee, occu])ied the re- mainder of the crowded s]iace. The most remarkable feature of the strans;ely furnished room, however, was the drapiuL;- of the walls in deepest mourning. Every bare space was covered by this w icnl funeral pall, even the bed clothing being wii -eu in the same sombre hue and (i -er the tal)le hung a black veh ' ct 1)anner like the ensign withnut, a milk white cross em])roi(lered on a sable ground. Strange was the tragic aspect of the room, but stranger the mournful aspect on the stern, care-worn face of its only occupant w ho sat beside the polished table, his large thin haml resting on a torn and tattered map. lie was dressed in close-fitting black jacket and hose, liis sombre garb unrelieved by insignia or col(ir. Against a rich velvet mantle he reclined in meditation, his pale face a ghastlx ' wdiite against its dark folds, llis bold features, wasted bv disease or sorrow, imjiarted an impression of absorbing melancholy. His steel gray eyes dulled with uns]jeakable misery glowed ever and anon with the consuming ;eal of a religious fanatic. A man of fifty years he seemed had it not been for his thick, gray hair curling cris])ly over his high forehead. I ' lUried in thought the sudden intrusion aroused him. In a moment i-;irs fell from him: his lax figure straightened into the rigid control of -oung man- hood, his listless eyes flashed commandingly, and with undivided attention he recei ed his subordinate ' s report. In ;i clear, firm ' oice he gave his commands for the night, and the intruder wheek ' d about leaving the caiitain, for such was evidently his rank, to resume the melancholy train of his thoughts. ' I ' he martial fire left his eyes, a weary lassitude succeeded his alert carriage: he was once more ;m old man. llis wandering glance fe ll on the coal-black helmet and raven ]ilume at his feet, the battered breast])late hearing the Maltese Cross, and beside the deadly swurd sheathed in the plain black scabbard, lie even fingered the hand- someK ' mounteil pistols until the ins|)iring touch of the cold steel aroused him from his reverie. Cautiously he rose ;uid barred the door: then falteringly raised the velvet li;nnier to be gri-eted li - ;ui ex(|uisite vision of Spanish beauty, surprised in a momeni of meditation. With instinclixe genius, the artist had porti ' a ed the cli iue loveliness of ihr l;id ' s features against a sombre setting of dark hued clouds now further autjnieulid li the deep mourning on every side. lMivelo|)i ' d in ,i snow whiti. ' m;intill;i of dream illusion, the fair si-norita gazed Ihoughlfully at the captain, her dark and serious eyes ])iercing his inmost soul. I ler swcri tirm month spoke of infinite tenderness, the rosy lips and lelicate chin trenndous in doubt. ( )ver her piu ' e white foivhead, stra ed in ;i curls, lu-r glorious wealth ol .suit, 131 silken hair, crowning her with queenly grace under the fairy spun mantilla. Sub- dued, fascinated, the haughty captain looked into those (lucstioning eyes ; implored those trembling lips to sjjeak. For ten years he had gazed enra]rtured, tortured, at that chaste, enchanting face — for ten years the irretrievable loss of that charming- lady love had gnawed at his heart, sa])])ing his energy, undermining his ambition. With the entrance of this fair lady into his careless life and her sad fate at his own hands, the merry, adventurous lieutenant of Francis Drake had changed to a morose, heart-broken man torn by contlicting jjassions which sought relief as a freebooter on the high seas, in the bitterness of his loss he had renounced his allegiance, becoming a free lance of the Spanish main. y the strength of a com- manding personality. Roger Defoe had gathereil under the white cross tlie boldest s])irits in the Indies. Through this same magnetic power he held them rigidly under his rule. Trained to na ' al discipline he enforced strict obedience on his followers, .sending them ashore to celebrate their orgies. Endowed with a master mind he had sacrificed his brilliant future to a disastrous love affair. Xow broken in health, weakened in action, he felt that his moral supremacy was drawing to a close over his lawless crew. . strict recluse. Defoe had held comnnmion with no one since his misfi)rtune exce])t the lovely ])ortrait before him. I ' lrokenly he murmiu ' ed, " Therese, Therese, " then shuddered as if touched by an icy hand. The curtain falls and horror-stricken he turns his gaze toward the mirror. ' I ' here! there! is another face, like yet unlike the calm ])ortrait, strange, wild, fearful. It is unmistakably the face of Ther ese, her silken hair drenched with brine, falling in disarray over her shoulders, her li((uid eyes dilated in a terrified prayer of su])]5lication, her sweet features c(.)ntorted into an agony of deadly fear. 1 ler pale lips part in a heart-rending shriek when, when — Defoe sees only his own ghastly countenance, iiis startled eyes bulging in terror while great beads of pers])iration gather on his forehead and he shakes with the violence of a fever chill. This is the eternal price he must pay for raising the black pall and beholding forbidden Paradise. Defoe broke into a wild hysterical laugh, collapsed sobbing into his chair, utterly unmanned by this nerve-racking ap]iarition. With the coming of greater calmness he mechanically put on his sable armor, the rax ' en plume droo]iing sor- rowfully over his pale features. Hastily unbolting the door, he eagerh- ascended to the upper decks. With the refreshing wind in his face, his stoical composure returned and with a firm step he strode over the slippery deck. . t the prow he paused as if something had attracted his attention. L ' nconfirmed in this sur- mise, he i aced on questioning the watch closely. . t the end of his round, he turned to the stairway, liesitated and hurriedly returned to his former station. In reward, the indistinct form of a huge galleon loomed faintly up before him and I s fell away into the trough of the sea. Eagerly he watched this unlddked-fdr com- panion; now vanishing completely in the misty spray, now riding the boisterous waves in stately grace. Ever near hut still indistinguishable, their mysterious companion held Defoe transfixed, for, as strange as themselves, it neitlier carried lights nor disclosed its identity. Seeking confirmation he questioned each guard hut none had seen it before him, and it was only with difficulty that they now per- ceived its shadowy form. Aroused to action by the mere possibility of an engagement even on such a night, the dauntless captain doubled his watch and, unmindful of the terrific force (if the storm, ordered the foresail to be bniken out. Cbeerfulh ' his devi ited crew, when they saw chances of winning rich boot}-, faced unflincbingK- the bi-ating rain and without (|uestioning yielded to their resourceful leader ' s guidance. The drenching rain poured in an unceasing torrent, the cold wind rushed in with irrt ' - sistible force filling the wet sail and bending the slender mast nearh- to breaking. The black sliip. spurred on by this new im])etus. coursed through the raging HoikI lathered by the salty foam, its Inw ilecks washed clean b ' the (i erwhelming cataracts of water that ])i ured over it. Plowing impetuously through the moun- tainous waves, the spirited creature, straining every timber, racked by the ])(iwerful gale, bore swiftly on. Still no closer, still elusive, the shadowy galleon k ' d ilu ' mad chase toward the fast nearing coast of b " ranee. Thus far, upward of three hoiu-s. the pursuer and the ])ursued fled tl ' .rough the night. Excited to the highest ])itcii, Defoe saw tiiat he was surely gaining. The unwieldl} ' liark lost half its distance, faltered and then held its own just out of gunshot. Tantalizingly it lured him forward, even now almost within bail, and again out of sight, . notlier sail was broken out, the eager crew imbued with rash courage of their frenzied leader, unlashed the heavy gims for action and to a man impatiently awaited the hazardous issue. They had thought that no shi|) afloat coidd hold them so long at hay, assuredly not a weighty galleon, and now unreined the lo al Therese nnist surely bring the ])rize to earth. In a spurt, but a prehule to the furious Hight that followed, the gallant priva- teer responded. The overwhelming waters swept men and gmis into the sea. the siip]ile masts swa ed and twisteil imik ' r the heavy liui ' den and l)eloe seized the whei ' l and guidi ' d his darling in her reckless course. Tlu ' raci- of her life w.-is on. The lleeing x-essel comes momentarily nearer. The inl i icati ' d pur uei ' s gaze eagerl at its loftv outline. Crazed with excitemenl, Ro er Hefoe shouts a defiaiU challenge. I ' lUt, look!

The Therese staggers under the force of tlie explosion. . sharp crash f ollows and the heavily taxed masts topple over the sides, the wet sails listing the crippled ship until the water i)ours into the hold. ' Consternation succeeds the feverish anticipa- tion, prayers for mercv follow the curses of impatience. Robbed of their hitherto unshaken confidence, the cruel ruffians surrendered to the wildest fears. Super- stition reigns rampant. In vain Defoe commands, ' pleads, adjures: his hour has come. Rapidly drifting toward the dreaded breakers, plainly heard in the dis- tance, the gallant ship once again rights herself. For a moment hoi)e returns to the cajitain and crew to be succeeded by fathomless despair as they see their spectral foe sailing calmly beside ' them. Horror of horrors! An unearthly light illumines the phantom vessel, a ghost!} ' crew manns its shadowy decks and on the guilty watchers stare the ghastly faces of the dead. A door swings open iin the fore ijoop, a female figure rushes nut, her arms extended in agonized supplication. Morror stricken, Defoe gazes at the Face of the Mirror; " tis Therese at her death hour. He deserts his post, draws his gleaming sword and strides to the ship ' s side. .V harrowing shriek splits the air and with an answering cry, the doomed man lea])s into the ginomy waters, his last glance fixed on his dis- tressed love. The Tlierese, deprive l (if her helmsman, mortally wounded, reeled in dying agony. Shaking with failing strength, she rocked in her death throes. The hungry sea up and drew into her longing breast the shattered bark, mangled and crushed by her passionate embraces. The wild storm subdued by the fearful storm has abated. Gusts of rain still blow across the avenging sea. The dark clnuds scatter in numberless flocks across the faintly lighted sky. The new moon casts a soft radiance over the huge waves rolling in mournful requiem about the tragic scene of the night ' s disaster. Against the stern, accusing crags the guilt-stained sea sobs in solemn re])entance protesting ])assionately against its cruel destiny. Above, over the lonely graves of the avenged, ever vigilant, an emblem of eternal sorrow sending forth rays of merciful forgiveness from its beacon light of hope, stands the Maltese Cross. 134 Yells ! ! !

Chapter XII ja 0 it came to pass in tlu ' days of Richard tiie Cahhitc, that there came a ila}- of rrreat rejoicing throughout the entire extent of tlie land of agri- culture. ( )n the evening of this day, between the hours of seven and eight, the lords of the agriculturites called together a great assembly of their tribes, and bade them make merry with much laughter and song ; for behold ! was not this the day where to rebel against the yoke of Richard the Cabbite, by whose tyranny they were sore oppressed ? Hut while they were yet fasting, and before they began to be merry, the Sopho- more and the Freshmen, two of the separate tribes of the agriculturists, did fall upon one another violently with their hands and with such manner of wea] ons as they possessed, and did sorely test the strength of one another ' s pates. Then it came to pass fliat the children of agriculture called together a meeting of the wise men of all the tribes of the land of agriculture. . nd these wise men did decree that they should join their forces and march upon a far remote city, nigh unto the barbarians, known by the name of Hyattsville. These mighty warriors proceeded to march upon the city, even as the children of Israel upon the city of Jericho. But, alas ! put not your trust in false prophecies. Hardly had they proceeded thrice around the city with trumpets and shouting before the ruler and chief high- priest of that city ap]K?ared liefore them and spake unto them, saying, " Why will ye that ve make war upon my city? " And they mocked him, crying out with one voice, " Hot air. " And the chief high-priest was exceeding wmtli. and did send fdrlh the mighty Rush at the head of an army to make battle against the besiegers. And the nnghtv Rush, being a man of strategy, did suddenly fall upon the besiegers, smote them hip and thigh, and did capture ever - man. According to the prophecv made known in the days of Rclschazzer, the King, it is not good for a man to he akme. So, Rush, the mighty man of armor, li;iviiig in mind alw;iys the things that are needful, threw the whole army nf prisoners intu the deep dungenn of the city, where thev spent tlie dark hours before- the dawning witli much weeping- and gnashing of teeth. Then it came to jjass that on the morning of the second day these prisoners were brought Jiefore a certain Carr, one of the elders of the city, who sat at the seat of justice, and wlio. like unto Rush, did also have an eye to things that are needful, and did decree that each and every prisoner should pay a ransom of three and one-half pieces of silver into the cofifers of the city before he could return again inito his own people. And the children of agriculture were exceedingly wroth, for were they not compelled to render unto Carr the things that were not Carr ' s? And there were few who had wherewith to pay. To him that hath shall be given ; to him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he seemeth to ha ' e. Oh. honorable judge! Oh, righteous old man! What does it profit thee if thou pavest thy whole city and lose the means wherewith to repave? And then it came to ])ass that Richard the Cabbite, when he saw that his children were sick and sore atflicted, had com[)assion on them, and came and ministered unto them, for their fetters were binding and their inclination contrary to the municipal law. And he made them contracts even with the chief high-priest, and taught them that it is more blessed to give than to receive. X ' erilv, they were wicked and full of faults, and there was no good thing in them : lint they laid all these things to heart and profited thereby. And they rested the evening of the second day. H.

" Wiggles is no more: he has passed in his chips. " What a sad thought it was to think that never more would we look upon his smiling face: nevermore would see him wag the abbreviated ai)i)endage which Wiggles thought was a tail. It may be imagined that our grief was very keen. So poignant, indeed, was the grief of some of the fellows, that they refused to eat anv " hash " for at least two weeks. 1 think that this was very touching. Just to think of bovs voluntarily fasting because of the death of a canine friend.

A fresh and mystic moonliqlit, with a fresh breeze, and a sky crossed by a few wandering clouds makes tlie terrace dcHghtfiU. These pale and gentle rays shed from their zenith a penetrating peace ; it is like the calm joy or the pensive smile of experience, combined with a certain strength. An infinite silence broods over the fields, and on the bosom of the sea. ISeyond the circle of trees, through which the broken vision of stars comes and goes with the gentle breeze, the broad earth lies hushed and hidden. Along the familiar walk the great elius murmur in low, inarticulate tones, and the shadows at their feet hide themselves from the moon, moving noiselessly through the summer night. Xot a sound in all the landscape. .All is secret, solemn, mysterious. The mystic charm and calm repose of sleeping nature insensibly steals over my spirit, and fills luy soul with a sublime reverence. Almost it seems a sacrilege for the foot of man to disturb these walks, hallowed by tlie mystic charm, and the quiet repose of the peaceful night. Suddenly — and the excitement of it thrills me yet — [ beheld in the path before me something which gleamed like gold in the mellow moonlight. Eagerly I hasten forward. I bend over. I touch it.

W.,Jr., ' 07. 162 Venganza; A Tale of Spanish Vengeance L ' RIXG the fall of 18 — . while on a pleasure trip throuoh the Xnrtliern Provinces of Sunny Spain, 1 chanced to stop at a sy])sy camp tor the purpose of listening to the niar -elous and inspiring future that is usuallv attrihuted to one hy these unique fortune-tellers. I was favored hy the saxings of four different members of the tribe: all of which told me different and contradic- tory stories. By the time 1 had finished m - little mission at this place dusk was rapidly approaching, and such a jjicture of nature ' s beauty 1 have never seen before. The sun was slowly setting u])on the rich, grassy glades of the forest, bathing all the land in Ijeauty and s])lendiir. Iluiidreds of broad-headed, short- stemmed, wide-branched oaks Hung their gnarled arms over a thick carpet of most delicious green sward ; in some places they were intermingled with beeches, hollies and copsewood of various descriptions, so closely as to interce|it the level beams of the sinking sun : in others they receded from each other, forming those long sweeping vistas, in the intricacy of which the e e delights to lose itself, while the imagination ci)nsiders tliem as the paths to vet wilder scenes of s Ivan soli- tudes. Here the red rays of the dxing sun shot a broken and discolored light that ])artially hung upon the shattered boughs and mossv trunks of the trees, and there they illuminated in brilliant patches the portions of the tm ' f o er which 1 made my waw The whole scene of such tvpical S])anish beauty had so enchanted me that I failed to realize that niglit was near at hand. 1 awoke from my enraptured dream to find that I did not have time to get to the ne.xt town, at which 1 was expected at nightfall, . hout a (juarter of a mile up tlie road 1 perceived a small white house, and T urged my animal forward, hoping to obtain shelter for the mght. When I arrix ' ed at the door of the dwelling 1 rajjped and a small stoop-shouldered man answered my urgent summons. 1 cxjilaint ' d what I wanted, and after gazing at me verv intenlh ' for a few seconds, he baeki. ' il off to the side of llu- door and allowed me to enter. The scene that met my gaze was not very inviting: seated in one corner was an old. wi ened woman, who, from all appearances, was enjoying a dreamless siesta; the furniture was dila])idated : the ])laster was mostly i nnv from the wails and ceiling, and the whole scene seemed to denote poverty and misery. ' 63 After taking " off my hat and coat. 1 asked my host where the stable was situ- ated, and proceeded to tend to my animal. . s I came out of the rickety old wooden shed I saw something glittering very brightly in the fast-fading twilight, and when I pulled away a little straw which partially covered the object, I found it was a small Spanish stiletto. I examined it very carefully and found that it was made of the best Damascus steel, and with a Ijeautiful eliony handle, on which was carved the initial " S. " There was one thing in my close inspection of the little weapon that puzzled me, and that was a few splotches of dried blood on the blade. It was human, as I knew the characteristics of the same, and it set my superstitious brain pondering deeply. The first questions that ran through my mind were, " What is the history of this small weapon? lias it been the dispatcher of life? If not, why were these blood marks on it? " I finally came to the conclusion that some intricate m_ stery was enshrouded in this little instrument i;if fate and I determined to do my best to probe it out. I carefidly put the lilade in my ]3ocket and directed my footsteps towards my lodgings. .My host met me at the door and silently led me into the house, where 1 p.artook of the frugal meal. The silence of the man who sat ()p])osite me became unljear- able, so I decided to see if I could nut induce him to talk a little. " This is a beautiful country around here, " 1 ventured. " Yes, " he calmly answered, " to those who are not used to it. " He had a remarkable voice; dee]), nuisical, strong, and strange to say, his accent was not like that I had heard from the peasants of this country : it reminded me more of the speech of the nobility of the land. His high, intellectual forehead ; dark olive cnm])le.xion ; small beady eyes, and strong, determined mouth, seemed to convince me that he was living below his regular station in life. While I was reading a paper I had purcha.sed in the last town I was in, the old woman whom I had seen on entering the house, came into the room and whispered something in the old man ' s ear. His face became red and convulsed, and the sight of it turned the blood cold in my veins, and caused me to shudder in fear and astonishment. I began to realize that he was hideous. He jumped up fnim his chair and (|uickly disaiipeared through the back door. I ran to the window and peered out into the darkness; down on his knees, a candle in his hand. I saw the old man searching vigoriiusly for some article in about the same ])lace where 1 had foinid the dagger. 1 realized immediately that my suspicions had not been for naught, and felt that something of very great importance lay in this weapon. After several minutes the cou])le returned, and I was shown to my bedroom, a small, scanty and ill-smelling place. I dropped into a wreck of a chair, and my thoughts drifted almost instantaneously to the little dag.ger. Suddenly an idea 164 came to me, about what an old fdrUiiK ' -tolk-r had tuld nic while in Paris, lie saiil that if one had anything ' in his ])ossession which he wished to know the historv of, all that he had to do was to place it beside his head when he went to sleep, and the story w inld Ix- re ' ealed In him in a dream, llax ing ' no other means to learn anything- about the dagger, 1 resorted to this. 1 immediately retired and ]ilaced the dagger on the pillow lieside my head. 1 was soon asleep. Then began the dream of dreams, ni stifying, horrihle. The stiletto told its stor -. and such it was: " I was owned by an old prince; one of the noble grandees of Spain. He was a man of very exceptional qualities : very intelligent, rich, but to his dire chagrin, very ugly. His face and body were of such a character as to make them repulsive. His arms were exceedingly long, reaching almost to his knees, while his legs were very short. His figure was also marred by a hunched back. i [y master, whose name was Sebastian Coreolome, had a brcither who was possessed of almost exactly llie ojiposite qualities from Sebastian. He was poor and had very little education, but he ])ossessed a matchless face and figure. " And now I come to the tragic part of m story. My master and his brother were desperatelv in love with the same woman, but, sad tci relate, she was not in love with both. She chose my master ' s bnither Rodriguez ' s beauty to Sebastian ' s money and social standing. " Well do ] remember the night she refused Sebastian. I ' assionately and lovinglv he asked her to marry him. As she answered " Xo, " a piercing, cutting laugh was heard behind the drapery that hung over the door. . h ! the mocker_ - of that chuckle. Aly master ' s face became flooded with rage and hatred. The veins of his face stood out until 1 thought they would burst. With a cry of rage lie stamped out of the house. W here he walked he knew not ; his hot and seething brain, incensed with agony and hatred, rocked like a tempestuous sea on a rock- bound coast. He staggered like a drunken man in a stupor. During this stage ni madness he did not notice the storm that was rapidly approaching. ' ith a Hash and a crash it descended in all its fury: a drenching rain poured dnwn nn his fevered brow, and seemed to stead - him. A few hundred yards away he saw a small structure silhouetted sharj)ly against the lilack mass of clouds. lie ra])idly ap])roached it, entered and ])r(KH ' ede l tn imestigate it, ami nnich to his surprise . ' i rnw nf coffins nn ' t his gaze. I knew immediately on seeing this th;it it was an nld famih tnmb. After gazing at these ghastly objects for an instant, m master ' s face lit ii|) with a demoniac grin, and I knew that 1 was the sla e of a maniac, . fter a time footsteps were heard, and my master crouched in the dark- ness of the building and waited for the person to pass. . s the unknown passed Sebastian heard that same chuckling laugh that had caused him so mitch misery a few Imm-s bef jre. lie peered out into the darkness and saw the m;in ' s fi ' .atures, i( 5 Tlie one who was mockino ' liini, who was driving ' him mad, was his brother ! Ah ! how he loved his brother, but how he hated that chuckling laugh. His hate out- weighed his love, and the course of vengeance he had plaunetl out would go on just the same. When he reached home he found Rodriguez in an excellent and ha])py mood, and that ha]3piness caused him the deepest pain, for he knew the woman he loved had caused this infinite joy. " Sebastian entered into a long conversation with his brother about his dis- tinguished ancestors, and said that he had found an old will which stated that a large amount of money and jewels had been left in the family tnmb : this being in accordance with the Spanish customs of that time. Rodriguez became intensely interested and suggested that they sliould go after the riches the next night. Me also said that he would take his future wife to the tomb and let her be the first to gaze upon the riches that would soon be hers. My master looked at him fondl - and tears were in his eyes, but that cursed chuckling laugh hardened his heart, and he coolly said, " Why. nothing coidd be more appropriate: certainly, certainly, take her along, that I may see the woman that has captured my handsome brother. ' " About five o ' clock the next evening the sky became shadowed by huge masses of gray-white, fantastically-i)iled clouds. Sebastian Ijecame greatly alarmed, as he saw the approach of the storm, being afraid that the - would be unable to go, but at nine o ' clock his brother and his fiance arrived at the house and they started. The rain was pattering softly down and the sky was occasionally lit up by flashes of intense lightning, followed by low rumbles of thunder. Rodriguez and his fiance walked ahead while Sebastian slowly groped along behind. Xow and then Rodriguez would let one of those infernal chuckles escape from the bottom of his lungs. ( )h ! how the force of m ' master ' s passion rose and rebelled. ' Ah, ' said he, in low tones, " can he be mocking me now : oh, if it were not for that laugh, you could marry all the women in Spain, and I would be satisfied ; that demoniacal chuckle is driving me mad, and 1 must rid myself of it. " " At last they reached the tomb, and just as they entered a flash of revealed to me my master ' s face. ( )h, God ! the horror of it : that sickening smile that rendered his face into that of a demon ' s. " Hal ha! ' he chuckled to himself; " Go down to your doom, you emblems of happiness. Take your last look at the glorious verdure of this green earth. Look. I say, for )ou will never set your eyes upon it again. ' A small flight of stairs led down into the tomb. A grated door closed over these steps, and as Sebastian passed in he closed the door behind him, locking it at the same time. The tomb had a dam]), moist smell, which seemed to make my master ' s flesh creep with horror and fear. " As Sebastian reached the floor of the cave he heard his brother tell him to light a candle. . h ! at last the time of fierce revenge has arrived. Through a 166 small v.ii. ii.c in liie tii| nf the cliaiiilici- a laiiit ijrLX ' nish lii lit struii ' ' leil thrim,L; " li, casting a most weird and gruL-sdnic aspect ui)on the surroundings. Into this hght luv master ahuost fell. His arms were flying wildly in the air: his face was covered with an awful .grin, Nlmwing his long, fang-like leelh. and his eyes rolled until I thought that they would burst out of his head. With a gurgling lau,gh, he yelled, ' ( )h. vile traitor and traitress, arch fiends of hell! What? Xeed you a candle to die 1) ? Think nol nf a candle liut get on your knees and pray fur redemption of our black souls. There is no hell dee]) enough for two such as vou. " The last sentence had been said almost in a whisper, as his breatli was nearly gone, and he groped ildl - for the light that filtered down thmugh the ceiling. When he reached it he was more hideous than ever ; more like a beast than a human being. Mis form was convulsed with passion and he wildly ]nilled his long. unkemi.)t hair, emitting awful yells all the while. ' ( Hi, ' he cried, ' chuckle, now chuckle. I say. dear Ijrother. What! you refuse? Then it is my time. ' . nd he burst into a fit of hvsterical laughter which sounded more like the roar of a wild animal. " Rodriguez was astonished by these actions, and his fiance clung closely to him for safetv. Thev knew they were in the clutches of a wild man. Rodriguez jerked a small lagger from his belt an l took hold of his brother, as he said, in cool tones. •If ou do not show us the a out of here I will ilrive this dagger up to the hilt in -our venomous bod -. ' ' .Mi. ' wildly laughed my master, as he said, ' kill me il ou will: it will (inl - be another crime for you to carry to the ne.xt world. This is vour doom, so be prepareil. ' Rodriguez went to the iron grating and put his whole force behind it, but it wonlil not yield. 1 le then came back to his fiance and (|uickly clasped her in his rams while trying to comfort her. In the meantime. vScbastian was (|uietly looking at this scene, but his pity was not aroused in tlu ' least. All of a sudden, he felt something on his neck. It was a soft, slimy body which was rapidly sucking the blood from my master ' s neck. Oh, the horror of it! lie tried to pull it off, but in vain. 1 was the next resource and he c|uickly drew me from mv sheath. In a moment he had cut the dreadful thing off and threw it far from him. as 1 heard it hit on the op])osite wall, just at this moment I saw a brilliant flash of lightning and by its illumination 1 saw my master ' s vic- tims fall stifflv to the ground, locked in each other ' s arms. Sebastian uttered a cry of j(iv anil ran toward them. They had been struck by lightning and were not Huhv deail. Seb;istian leaned over them and uttered a prolonged chuckle with that diabolical grin on his face. Just then his brother ' s frame shuddered and he uttered one of those most hated laughs. 1 was drawn from my scabbard and l)lnnged again and again into this d ing man. The young girl groaned an l siglied, Mv master eved her and grinned. . curious green light shone out of his eyes as ho api)roached her. . h, Cod! what would he do ne.xt? " 167 I awoke with a start. It was ilark as pitch, uxccpt fur a ihiU iireenish li!;ht wiiich issued from a caiulle. I was aware that someiiody was in my room, and I quickh- jumijed up in bed, ra])idly surveyins the room with my searching eyes. I saw a jiair of green eyes, tlie only part of the form I could distinguish, gradually appriiachiug me. In an instant 1 saw the face that was slowly coming on. (ireat lu;i en ! Ccmld I he mistaken? o, it was the same demoniac grin and the same face 1 had seen in my li-eam. I jumped out of bed and grabbed the form. Tn an instant I had struck a match and was gazing at the creature I held.
