EFFERSCN DAVIS was a soldier, orator, statesman and stu- dent, a devoted husband and father, and a loyal friend. That he made mistakes all must admit, but that he sinned against his con- science or sacrificed principle to expediency few of his former foes now have the hardihood to claim. His was a strong nature attracting to it kindred metal as a magnet attracts steel. Such men excite enthusiastic love or provoke deep animosity, and during his long and eventful life he made many warm friends, and bitter enemies. His imposing figure, flashing eye and haughty eloquence marked him for command. Among his peers he stood a cavalier sans pezn' et sans 1'c'pr'ocl1c, an epitome of the patrician South, her natural leader in the struggle for constitutional freedom. His education was received at W'est Point, and while there he manifested those studious habits that followed him through life. Immediately after graduation he was assigned to frontier duty, and in the Indian wars manifested soldierly qualities of a high order. In the war with Mexico he commanded The Mississippi Rides, and on the battlefield of Buena Vista his daring bravery gave him a national repu- tation. He was Secretary of War under President Pierce, and in this position added fresh luster to his name. Mr. Davis resigned from the army after several years of frontier service and for a considerable period devoted himself to close study. Emerging from this self-imposed obscurity he entered at once the 5 political arena, and ere long was the acknowledged equal of Prentiss, Quitman, McClung and Foote. In the State Senate and later in the Nation's Congress, the pons asinorum of many an aspirant for political favor, he represented his constituents with zeal and ability. Later he was sent to represent his State in the National Senate. In that august body whose halls had but lately echoed with the voice of Clay, of WVebster, of Calhoun, he took a commanding position, and was esteemed by North and South alike, the leader of the States Rights party. Wfhen his State seceded he left his seat in the Senate to place his talents at her command, prepared to march to the front or to serve in any capacity that she might demand of him. But the eye of the whole South turned toward him, and in 1861 he was called to the presidency of the Confederate States, and in 1862 was re-elected for six years. For four years he served this cause with unflagging devotion and fiery zeal, and even in the last hours of the Confederacy would not believe that a cause so sacred could suffer defeat. " Divom inclementia divom Has evertit opes sternitque a culmine Troiam. " He bore with dignity and courage the pains of defeat and impris- onment, and when the malice of his enemies had spent itself, beating in vain against his lofty nature, he returned to the dignified seclusion of private life, consecrating the days that remained to his wife, children and beloved books. His patience and resignation in the midst of adversity added daily to the number of his friends, and when in 1889 he passed quietly away, all those who had worn the gray, irrespective of former political creed, mourned the death of a beloved chieftain. A. L. B. 6 HISTQIQICIKL SKETCH OI: THE UNI- VEIQSITY OI: MISSISSIPPI. HE UNIVERSITY QF MISSISSIPPI owes its origin to that wise provision contained in the celebrated ordinance of 1787 for the government of the Northwest Territory, which declared that " religion, morality and knowledge being necessary to good govern- ment and the happiness of mankind. schools and the means of educa- tion shall forever be encouraged." Every State in the Union formed out of the public domain has received by act of Congress. as an endow- ment for a State university. the grant of two or more townships of pub- lic land. Mississippi received its first township soon after its admis- sion into the Union, and has recently come into the possession of the second township granted by Congress. In 1833, the first University lands were sold by order of the Legislature, and the money placed in the State treasury. In 1840, it was declared by the Legislature that a State university should be established. and the proceeds of the lands previously granted by Congress were set apart for the use and benefit of the State university. In 1841, the present location was fixed by the Legislature. Qn the twenty-third of February, 1844, the University of Mississippi was duly chartered by act of Legislature, and its first board of trustees named. During the four following years the first buildings were planned and their erection begun. In July. 1848. the first faculty was elected. Dr. George Frederick Holmes, who afterwards served the University of Virginia for many years until the time of his death in 1898, was elected president of the University of Mississippi. John 7 v Millington. M. D.. was elected professor of natural philosophy and chemistry: Albert Taylor Bledsoe, LL. D., was elected professor of mathematics and astronomy 1 john Newton lYaddel, D. D., was elected professor of languages. This original faculty was small in num- bers, but the eminent positions afterward occupied in educational work by each of the gentlemen named indicate the wisdom of the trustees in their election. ' The First session opened November 6th, 1848, with about eighty students in attendance.all of whom were classed as Freshmen or Sopho- mores. The records of that period show the difficulties under which the University began its work in what was then a pioneer settlement remotely situated. Probably one month was lost, as far as scholastic work was concerned. in classifying students and in securing text-books. This time appears to have been diligently improved by that large pro- portion of the student body who looked upon college life as an oppor- tunity for fun and frolic. Disorders of various kinds characterized most of the session. The president seems to have found the management of the institution too serious a matter, and returned to the more congenial atmosphere of Virginia. The remaining three members of the faculty, with Dr. Bledsoe, acting as president, continued the work of the ses- sion. The First commencement exercises, held in 1849, consisted of " declamation and composition " by the students, an address by Hon..-X. M. Clayton. of the board of trustees, and an address by Acting- President Bledsoe, in which, after congratulating the community upon the fact that comparative good order had prevailed for two months, he proceeded to discuss the doctrine of total depravity from an educa- tional standpoint. ' The second session of the University opened most auspiciously under the presidency of Dr. A. B. Longstreet, the celebrated " Judge Longstreet," of Georgia, and with several additions to the faculty. Vliithin two years, the enrollment of students had largely increased, and there was a corresponding increase in the corps of instructors. The University immediately took high rank among the institutions of the country, both on account of the ability of the men connected with it, and the character of the work accomplished. This rank has been fully maintained in all its history. Its trustees have been selected from the most distinguished and intelligent citizens of the Stateg the faculty 8 has always been composed of men eminent in their profession, many of whom have been called from this institution to places of more promi- nence, and whose promotions were based largely upon their work accomplished here. In this list maybe named such men as Dr. John N. VVaddel, Dr. F. A. P. Barnard, Gen. Alexander P. Stewart, Dr. Edward Mayes, each of whom served as Chancellor of the University: and Dr. Landon C. Garland, Dr. Albert Taylor llledsoe, Dr. lf. XY. Hilgard, Dr. Henry X'Yllll1Cl1OI'llC, and many others who served in var- ious chairs. Wfhen the Civil Wiar came on, the University exercises were sus- pended for four years, and probably every student who had been con- nected with the University from 1858 to 186i saw service in the Con- federate army. The institution was reorganized in 1865, and at once entered upon a renewed career of prosperity and usefulness. The number of students taking work in the University classes has steadily increased. This is markedly true in recent years since the preparatory department was abolished. Under the present management many more students have been enrolled in the university classes than during any corresponding period in the history of the institution. The author- ities recognize that the University belongs to the State of Mississippi, and every effort is made to accomplish such work in all its depart- ments, as the people of the State have a right to expect. In recent years it has enjoyed a large share of public favor, and it enters upon the second half century of its work with the brightest prospects for continued and rapid growth in strength and usefulness in every direc- tion. The pride of the University is in the men who have studied here. The fact that such a very large number of these have risen to places of prominence in this and other States shows that the University has ever been a power in the development of scholarship and manly character. 9 BOM-QD OI: TIQLISTEES.

HAT strange things have come to pass since in the Semi-Cen- tennial year the Class of 'QQ so proudly grasped their " dips." enveloped in their precious caps and gowns. As I look around upon some of the students of the L'niversity that year I can but exclaim, " XYho would have thought that they would be what they are, so oddly combining the past with the present." I enter the campus afoot and overtake a tall dignified man with piercing' eye and black hair slightly tinged with gray. XYell if here isn't old Gus Smith. " Hello, Gus--" but I am frozen stiff. " I am. sir," he said, " I-Ion. L. Augustus Smith. editor of the Record, editor of filLli Miss, and president of the board of supervisors of Simpson County. XYhen I ope my mouth, let no dog bark." Ye gods! I stand amazed at such a speech, but remember that the past is still strong upon him. On I stride with heavy heart, but going suddenly around the corner of the old library I fall upon the prostrate form of a drunken man, haggard and wan. I start back in horror. Oh, cruel fate! Landrum Leavell-a drunkard. " Oh, Landrum, how did you come to this," I groan. I catch mid his mutterings, " Oratorical contest- shattered nerves-drank strong coffee in Senior year-the same old story-Y. BI. C. A.-Baptistlu In vain I called for Charlie XYebb, Isom or Smith to come to my help. I had forgotten they had died long ago-no, were translated and carried below. I leave the prostrate form of what was once a man and rush after help. As I pass around the fountain so dear to 'QQ I almost run into a little woman followed by her faithful husband. I unconsciously laugh as I see a bunch of violets pinned on her dress. Although I am hot after help and bromo seltzer, I can but stop and speak to my friend, Miss B., and, by the way, ask her where she got 83 violets in June. At my question she blushes a little and exclaims: " Oh, Goat sent to Greenland for them-Goat worships me." Excusing myself. on I went for help. But where shall I go? Oh, yes! Chancellor Johnson will help me-he whom we impudently used to call " Prep." As I am about to ring the bell of the new Chan- cellor's residence where the old southwest dormitory used to stand, out comes the Chancellor, still fat and jolly. but lo! he remembers me not. " Good evening, Chancellor," I remarked, " I have a friend who is sick. Can you send me some one to help him ? " " Yes, yes-come in. Sit downg sit down-I 'll see Mrs. Johnson, what she can do." I seat myself on the porch and in a few moments out comes a strangely familiar figure. I sit horror-stricken in my chair-can it be-has he lost his mind? Cn past me he goes, talking in that sad- sad way. I fear to call him and on he goes. " Make butter out of green figs-use liquid air-strange-strange--" In a moment out comes the Chancellor to whom I turn eagerly for explanation. 'K Yes. yes, that 's McCleskey, great electriciang just left his wire- less telephone to the moon. Old bachelor, queer genius. Poor fellow, girl kicked him-but-oh, yes. who 's sick?" After telling him who it is the Doctor proposes that he call "Fatty " to help us. " Who is Fatty?" I ask. " Oh, Fatty." he replies, " he 's a queer fellow-loved lXlcCleskey. so he never would leave him: graduated with him: answers his tele- phone and-you've heard of McCleskey's 'Steamboat Tablets' haven't you?" I was strangely ignorant. " Yes, you have: yes, you have. He makes 'em out of fig butter- sure to make you fat. just look at Pruitt, there: experimented with him. How much does he weigh? Five fifty-five fifty: fine fellow, wc like him. For the first time since I have come I give an undergraduate laugh. Sure enough there is old Pruitt, big as an elephant. But he, also, knows me not. 84 .lust as we start across the campus the old familiar yell of " fire " comes from the post-office dormitory. In an instant all is confusion. I watch closely those who speed by me and notice a tall, long-legged man as he goes sailing by. " Ifir-er," " Fir-er," he yells. " Water," " NVater." 'Tis the old joke and as the bucket of water lands fairly on his head his cry is changed to " Rubber Neck," " Rubber Neck," and I know it is big-mouthed Scales. He has got his habits on. XVhen the excitement is nearly over, a smiling, red-faced, fat, bow- legged Dutchman comes tearing out in a sweater tickled nearly to death. 'T is only liretschmar at his old tricks-nobody is surprised and high above the racket is heard WUZTO mi efvswjzowa Other almost forgotten figures are seen. Billups, back on a visit, also grows confused and is seen tearing across the campus with the beloved cane in his hand, fearfully glancing back for imaginary Seniors hot in pursuit. But who is this tearing down the steps with his new Columbia inonocycle on his shoulder? By jove! Hugh Miller, Freshman yet, makes a rapid exit. I hear his once splendid voice, now beginning to crack, still spouting forth " XVilliam Shakespeare was the greatest genius of our world." " Why, Chancellorf' I exclaim, " Is that Hugh Miller ?" " Yes, yes-he 's won Freshman medal every year for twenty-five years. Yes, Shakespeare was the greatest genius, and Miller the greatest Freshman declaimer of our world." I am getting vastly interested when suddenly I hear a dainty foot- step and quickly turn only to fall under the murderous blow of a " foot- pad" none other than Hugh White-disappointed in love-increased in flesh. Too sad, too sad. NVhen all the Commencement exercises are over I awake in the " Dead House " and slowly gain strength for my trip home. All have gone and left me-all new faces around me-I gently fall asleep. When I awake I am in-doubt. I have been in doubt ever since. However, I am neither a liar nor a lunatic-only an old student with a good memory. 85 , ,fi . , nfl!! - Ajyjgmfwf i If A , Aki: iv iuV ,lii7l M g? f' -71 W iff if ' X l tl EX Xi fx ii '1, M lm ' f ,f,fv' 1 f If If I X M3 f Wan I .7 M ri R , X XMX4, J it Af iff till f 4+ f x 'fi 1 X l N i A i i x l i x K , l l l i J . 5, Q ,I 5 lil twill W l 5? iflc iiiag Qin ii ide Qian.

X MY table there lies a silver spur, found among many other relics, about four miles northwest of my native town, on the site of the old Chickasaw village, where the ill-fated Chevalier Dlkrtagnette, after a gallant assault, was defeated, captured, and tor- tured to death. On one slender prong of the spur, is the engraving-john Turn- bull. And, as I look at it, I remember the story of that brave soldier of fortune, who, with his bitterest foe, sleeps beneath the green grass and the waving Howers. The night before Palm Sunday, 1736, a little group of men were gathered around a camp-Fire, upon the site of the present city of Tupelo, then a wilderness, the domain of the lordly Chickasaw. This group was composed of the Chevalier DH-Xrtagnette, his officers, and three Indian chiefs-two Iroquois and one Arkansan. The commander arose and read a letter from Monsieur De Bien- ville, stating that it would be late in April before he could aid him in the intended joint attack upon the Chickasaw camp. I-Ie then asked the opinion of the council as to whether a retreat or an attack was advisable. The French officers, save one, and the Iroquois, expressed them- selves as opposed to an attack and only the two who had been silent remained to be heard from. The deep voice of D'.-Xrtagnette broke the silence. " Captain Turnbull, will you favor us with your views?" All eyes were turned toward the Scotchman as he arose and every ear was attentive as he began : 37 " Gentlemen, I say attack, ere to-morrow's sun shall have sunk to rest. You ask why? Listen and say if I should not pray for battle." " Years ago, when I was in the first Hush of young manhood, I loved a bonnie lass and was loved in return. We were soon to be mar- ried, but first I must make a journey to London, on business. " I took with me my bosom friend, Ralph Percy, an Englishman, living near my own home. While in the city, I was kidnapped by the notorious press-gang and shipped to the wars in Germany. " I wrote several times to my sweetheart, but never a reply did I receive, and when live years later, I returned home, a tale of treachery was unfolded to me, which sent me to this New XVorld, seeking the author of my ruin. " Percy had contrived my capture and impressment and, after a few months, tried to win my sweetheart, Nell Gordon. Failing in this, his love turned to hatred. Having a mortgage upon the cottage in which Nell and her widowed mother lived, he foreclosed it and,one wild night, turned them out on the moor. The exposure killed the mother quickly, and my bonnie lass followed as the flowers of spring were blooming. " Percy, soon afterward went to London and thence to Georgia and now, I hear from a spy, is in the Chickasaw camp with other Brit- ish emissaries. " Gentlemen, retreat if you will, but here my red brother, Panther, and I remain. XVhat say you, my brother?" Slowly, Panther, the .-Xrkansan arose, gracefully, he stretched his arm toward the west. " There lies my wife, my boy, the pride of my early years and all my tribe, save these few who follow me still. Many moons have I fought the Chickasaws, many scalps have I taken, but to-morrow the Great Spirit says for me to conquer or die. I have spoken." Shortly the council ended and preparations began for an attack. Calm and fair, Palm Sunday dawned, but early its quietude was broken by the rattle of musketry, the cheering of soldiery, and the war-whoopof the Indian. Wie all know the result of this brave attempt and the fate of the gallant Chevalier. 88 On the right flank, in a little glade, each with a score or so of Indian allies, Ralph Percy and john Turnbull met. ' lnstinctively the red men stood back, and silently the two leaders crossed swords. For some time no advantage was visible, then Turnbull's sword was twisted from his grasp and Percy passed his weapon through his opponents body. Turnbull bent aside till the steel snapped and with a mutual spring backward, each drew a knife, Though wounded, Turnbull advanced, Percy retreated, until sud- denly he reached his hand to his belt and drew a pistol. "Ah, my Scotch friend, methinks l win again," he laughed, and fired. The wound was mortal, but ere he died, John Turnbull saw him- self avenged. Chief Panther sprang forward, his hand flew to his belt, then circled round his head, there was a Hash, and, as the keen tomahawk struck him in the forehead, Ralph Percy fell and died. Above them the Indians closed and fought till not an Arkansan remained, and the Great Spirit's message to Panther was fulfilled. S. P. CLAYTON. 39 Eh: Bars-itg mills.

HE Class of Ninety-nine is passing-passing from the mystic possibilities of college days into the stern realities of life. It is but natural that we should pause at the portal and cast one long, lingering, farewell glance of retrospection toward those halls from which we are about to take our departure to enter a broader domain of usefulness. .-Xnd as we look backward our memory will call into review the incidents which have helped form the train of events that have occurred in the course of our four years' service as students. ln every department of college life where free ability of brain or muscle counts for anything the history of Ninety-nine is inscribed upon the records in letters of such size that " he who runs may read 1" nay, more, its fame has gone out beyond the University. XYe pass over without mentioning in particular our achievements as a class, but we feel confident that everybody is grateful to us for what we have done, even though they are too envious to say so. In our own meek, mild, and unassuming way we make our bow, knowing our superiority but without vaunting it. In fact, Ninety-nine needs no written history. Every one has the history of this class written in his memory. How we condole with the University in its prospect of so soon losing its most glorious class! As we pass into the realities of life, we begin to speculate on what the future has in store for us: and as we each apply our eye to the kaleidoscope of our future career, a different scene unfolds for each one, yet common in one picture presented o'er which is emblazoned the word " Success." XVe stand as representatives of higher education in the world. Let each of us, wherever our lot may be cast, strive to maintain the dignity of our position, and let us endeavor to reflect credit and honor upon those men who have so faithfully labored with us and for us as well as upon the institution that stands as our sponsor.

HE modern psalmist has chanted the praises of many classes in many books 1 the youthful orator has, from a thousand academic rostrums, cast the " halo of a grander day upon the brow of the dying circle 1" the dawn of the twentieth century has broken in all the colors of the rainbow upon countless pages of college lore-and yet, the noble deeds, the potential power, and latent glory of our Class of 1900 has never yet been told. XYhat we have done would give inspira- tion to the genius of the age, what we have not done would furnish material for an encyclopedia, but what we shall do will supply the theme for song and story in all the ages yet to come. This we can say, and say without fear of final contradiction, for, though all can proph- esy, no man can read the future clear enough to disprove what we say. In the fall of 1896, we first fore-gathered to enroll our names upon the Cniversity records. Though " freshman green as grass " yet still " all on study bent." NYe gazed in awe on classic scenes and reverend faces now grown so familiar. In that first year, that now seems so long, long ago, the months passed slowly by. Our history was scant and meager and no great glory accrued to our honored name. As befitted modest Freshmen few stayed to bid farewell to the Class of 'Q7. Our Sophomore year taught us to navigate the devious ways of 0xford's sidewalks, and to play football with the Seniors. In the mysteries of class elections were trained many politicians into whose hands we hope the nation will see the wisdom of intrusting its future. That stormy session, too, passed by, and November, '98, witnessed the entry of the Class of IQOO upon its junior year. IOI Three winters of changing views and thoughts have almost gone. To some of us success has come, to some the years have brought defeatg but to all, in the memory of the future, the time will be a pleas- ant reach upon the varied distance of life's long pathway. The tasks set for us have not all been performed, the lessons to be learned have too often been neglected. Some of us have bitter recollections but most have memories of much that is sweet and dear, and all, realizing that our education lies not wholly in books, should truly say that from our college life we obtain a deeper insight into the future than could ever have been our share had not our alma mater guarded us through these years. Should we profit by this experience-though all else be forgotten-we could truly say our time had not been wasted. Long live the century class! May the sunlight cease to bathe the worn brick walks and the moon no longer play weird tricks with the old Lyceum walls before the name of rgoo be forgotten. May we need no graven stone to hand down our memory to the Freshmen of after year, but by noble deeds and worthy lives may we ever be remembered. Long live our class! May our failures never be omens of disaster: may our successes ever be auguries of future fame. May our evil cease and be forgotten: may our good continue and be remembered: and, in the future, be our world great or small, may we take the place that ever comes the due reward of merit, truth. and worth.

PILE of rocks, a few palm trees, an ocean of sand, a pot over a fire, two men, one patrician, the other plebeian, this is our scene. "And so vacation passed and we came together again "-here the story of the traveler was interrupted as Buhmwumm, the king of the Cahnnybls, rose to feed his fire and see if the water boiled. , Finding everything progressing to his satisfaction, Bulnnwunnn seated himself and the traveler went on with his story. " NVe came together," he modestly continued, " with rested brains and bodies, ready to seize whatever glory came within our reach. Rapidly the other classmen sank into insignificance-and so small did they become i11 the eyes of the world that they longed to find some means whereby they might attract attentiong so the Seniors hung themselves in black and wore huge wings, calling them sleeves, that made them look as vultures do when roosting, aye and boards upon their heads that they might appear level-headed: the very Junior, tipped his crown with blue and took upon himself some right smart airsg and the little Freshmen, fearful lest they should be crushed, cried aloud to be allowed to carry canes, but the Seniors, jealous of their power, wrenched the canes from the hands of the Freshmen and ruled over them. But the Sophomores advanced steadily in power and honor. " When the year was half passed, the Seniors sought the notice of the Sophomores beseeching them to play at ball with them. Conscious of their strength, the Sophomores thought it well to spare a few min- utes from their precious time, and humble the pride of these would-be io8 ball-players. XYhen the day for the game was come and gone, the Seniors saw their colors in the dust and could find " none so poor. to do them reverencef, and finding themselves disgraced they bowed their necks and wept, like women with hysteria whose servants have left them in the time of house-cleaning. "And so the year passed, each day, for the Class of 1901, a step higher in the ladder of fame. Yes, in oratory, in learning, in athletics. in society, in everything, they were so excellent that the other class- men grew pale and lost their nerves. " Oh, great indeed, were these men. The last two years were-but I need not tell of them, what could they have been but glorious. "And now, O sweet Sachet Powder of the Universe, O Fragrant Flower of the deserts, O Dusky Pearl of the South Sea, spare I beseech you this missionary for I am a wandering member of this Class and modesty forbids me tell you half its merits." " It is enough," haughtily warbled the Ethiopian potentate. as he stamped his foot and tore his hair, from the head of the nearest by of his wives, "enough, you wax too great and will eclipse the glory of my ancestors, therefore prepare for my feast, for this night I dine off thy bones." Thus was his doom decreed. But the old classman stood with a far-off look in his eyes and seemed to roam with his dreams. back to the land of his birth : his face glowed and he. clapping his hands. shouted " Hooray for hoorayf' Verily the sun is hot in the desert lands. and very hot upon the head of one, who bares his crown to a king. And I-luhmwumm. the king. marveled. But the traveler only screamed louder than before 'L Ra, Ra, Ra, Ra, Ra., Ra, Ra, Ra, Ra, Sophomore. " And still the king marveled and rose to stir the fire. The water boils, vale, vale, comite. HISTORIAN. 109 Sophomore Glass Bull aah Statistics Q E. THOMAS BUSH, . . Macon, Noxubee County, Miss. B, A., A T A. AIARLIN T. COLLIER, . .

N DECEMBER ist, 1898, one could have seen as motley a crowd as ever mortal gazed upon, had he but turned his eyes toward Phi Sigma hall, for there the Freshmen had gone to organize. Some were red-headed, some were red-necked and some both. Mr. Curlee was chosen as chairman and the gentlemen Dj present were given an opportunity to expatiate upon "parliamentary rules," i. C., what they knew about them. After much deliberation, and more waste of time, a president. one of the best looking men in the Class, was elected by acclamation. Une of the " freshies " present said that " he voted for him because he was the only man nominated." Mr. V. O. Robertson was the one chosen to lead that herd, and well has he led them, across the " pons asinorumf' The vice-president, Y. Q. Ricks, was next elected, and amid cries of " Speech! Speech! Speech! i' arose, cleared his throat and in a voice varying from A flat to Z major, said, " Go to The other offices, secretary and treas- urer, historian, baseball captain, baseball manager, football captain, football manager, orator. poet and editor, about exhausted the mem- bers physically, mentally, numerically, and otherwise. A Mr. T., better known as " jack," nominated " Jack " for baseball captain. Some objections were made to his nominating " jack," " a point of order " was called for, and question put to the house to ascertain whether the majority were in favor of letting the nomination stand. Those making the objections voted against them- selves. All business having been transacted the chairman said a motion to adjourn was in order. " Silence reigned supreme." Directly some one whispered " loudly," " Let 's go," and out they went. 113 Some of them ventured to play football, one saying "I might thereby be able to reach the height of my ambition, i, c., to weigh three hundred and fifty :"the other, " I might thereby ' tan ' my hair." The season for football being over the Freshmen turned their attention to the classroom where they spent many happy UQ hours. Then comes the happiest days of their school life, that one week, which we all look forward to with such pleasure, the week which we all welcome and the week which we hate to see go. During this week " some hitched their wagons to a star," but left the end-gate out, and " Oh! what a fall was there my countrymen 3" some busted, some dis- gusted and many quit math. The Freshman Class took a firm stand in college sports. putting two men on the Varsity eleven. and two men on the Varsity nine, and played the " champion baseball team a tie game,', thereby sharing that honor with them. O, Senior! O, junior! where art thou? Since organization, many noticeable improvements have taken place in the demeanor of the Freshmen. For instance, they have become accustomed to hearing the bell, to seeing sidewalks, trains, and the many wonders of civilization. They have progressed so far as to swear by Venus, the goddess of darkness, to pass pickles when asked for sodium chloride, to keep off the grass, to keep out of the ponds, to go to Fires where more H20 is put on the " rubber necks than on the fire," to cut fclassesj without an axe, and to treat hog cholera with carbon. Now that vacation is near the Freshmen are getting sorry, for they are forced to make room for the class of 1903. HISTORIAN. 114 ihesllman Glilass Bull. ALLEN, AVILLIAM FRANKLIN .

BROWN Historian. iiistnrg ni the Slam Qllass ui '8S. HE historian of the Law Class of ,QQ starts on his work heavily handicapped, for his class said unto him, " NVrite not our his- tory as it is, we have no wish to cause the would-be lawyers of the future to despair, or go elsewhere rather than stand so far below our record." So having learned well the maxim Saltus populi suprcma lar, we, for the sake of the youth of Mississippi, will try to hide our light under a bushel, or if that sufficeth not, we will try a hogshead. 119 So, remembering the above and aforesaid fact, listen to a few minor incidents merely thrown in to cover the page, to-wit: We, the aforesaid Law Class of '99, on the fifteenth day of November, 1897, did individually and collectively, jointly and severally, compose and create ourselves an organization, to be known as the Law Class of ,QQ. created subject to the laws of Mississippi, and the by-laws of the Uni- versity of Mississippi, situate in aforenamed State, county of Lafayette, and near the small and dependent town of Uxford. This organization did also consent to be under the rule, supervision and care of the Hon- orable Chancellor of the above-named University, provided, neverthe- less, that each member should be fully and unreservedly authorized to disregard such of Chancellor's rules as such member should feel it incumbent upon him to ignore. All these things, especially the last, have been faithfully performed. The first meeting of this class was held on the aforesaid day of its organization and from then each member has not failed to " crack 'em up." For some time there has been a standing offer of a set of law books to the member of the Senior Law Class who should write the best thesis, only those being permitted to contest who should graduate with a grade of ninety or above. The Faculty of the University soon saw that every member of this quiet but determined class would take away from the law professor the grade of ninety, in spite of his efforts to hold them down, and that the faculty would spend the rest of their probable and natural terms of existence in examining prize theses. So the Faculty did call a meeting to consider the case, and there and then did decide, and subsequently did publish, proclaim, advertise and pro- mulgate their decision, to-wit, that only those whose grades were among the first five could compete. As part of the rcs gvsta' we men- tion the fact that several light-headed Juniors did declare and affirm that the aforesaid proclamation was prompted by fear that none of the class would make the required grade of ninety. Upon-this, and the spirit prompting it, we make no comment. Among our numbers we have a great variety of types, some of whom are worthy of special description. NVe have first the man of the wonderful memory, who, when called on to recite, fixes his eyes on an imaginary book and rattles off page after page of law, only hesitating while he turns a leaf of the book before his mind's eye. 120 Then comes our class orator, who clinches each legal principle by such emphatic gestures that he keeps our beloved professor ducking his head in nervous fear of the orator's hands becoming detached. Last comes our criminal lawyer, who says, " yes, the professor may tangle me up on civil questions, but just let me get him before a magistrate in a case of a criminal nature and I will show him a few things." We have four or five members who labored under a strange delusion that their duty was to assist in quizzing the class, but one by one each learned the folly of his ways and grew silent. To us was accorded the honor of being the first class to wear the cap and gown, the Faculty feeling that any one who can engineer a cap and gown around the campus with dignity, is fitted by nature to wear the robe of the chief justice or even to grace the chair of a justice of the peace. In athletics, we are represented by members on the football, track and gymnasium teams. The school, feeling the need of a steady head to care for athletics, elected from our class the managers of the base- ball, football and track teams. As we have before remarked, and as the discerning reader will have found by reading these lines, we are exceedingly modest and not at all inclined to brag and have written these few facts merely that that great tribunal, the public of Mississippi, may not enter against the Law Class of 'QQ the judgment nil didf. So we record not our greatness, we grave our names on no marble tablets before the Lyceum, as " We know that the record of illustrious actions is most safely deposited in the universal remembrance of man- kind. ft Vife know that no inscription on entabla- tures less broad than the earth itself can carry information of the events we commemorate where it has not already gone," HISTORIAN. 121 Bull aah Statnstncs ni Senior iam Glilass.

Their desire in this respect is natural and proper. The eyes of the whole country are on the men of the class and mighty things are expected of them. A review of the personnel of the class would be proper here, but space forbids. Suffice it to say that each 128 man is a man indeed. " With Herculean shoulders fit to bear the weight of mightiest monarchiesf' and that the earlier the people see fit to thrust on them the management of the affairs of state the better for the country. Already some of our men have responded to the calls of their countrymen to sit in the councils of the State. This class has overcome difficulties and passed through trials unheard of in former class histories. Born in the time of war and pes- tilence it sprang into manhood in one night and now waxes strong as a giant, able to contest its rights with all comers. The Governor has tried his hand against it in three pitched battles. The first time we were taken unawares and the blow dealt us was severe, crippling some of us and causing much confusion. Our first contest served us how- ever as a lesson and having learned the tricks of our wily foeman. the results of our late engagements with him have been different. On another Held too have our men won glory. Inhabiting the neighboring country there is a certain band of people called Co-eds, which has for some time most cruelly as well as destructively waged war on the dif- ferent law classes. Not wishing for various reasons to meet them in open battle we have at proper times put forward to treat with them for us different men of the class, the success of whose mission may be judged from the fact that we now count these people friends and allies. To conclude: The year has been for us one of conflicts and vic- tories. XVe have forced the " Governor " to yield and we have made of our strongest enemies our best friends. Wie have put champions on every field open to us and they have everywhere held high the repu- tation of the class, winning for themselves and the class fame and honor. And thus our class finishes its work for the year and strides forth to prove its worth on new fields as it has done in the past.

I have heard this tale of the olden days, Of the time when elves, and sprites, and fays, With laughter and gleeful mirth, On the meadows danced 'neath the moon's soft light g And their joyous songs woke the sleeping night 3 A tale of the opal's birth. In a spot remote from the haunts of men, On the grassy slope of a lonely glen, A bevy of peris danced. And a limpid brook, with its dashing sound, As it joined the chorus of those around, The melody much enhanced. In a gloomy cavern not far away, An ill-humored imp heard the music gay g The merriment vexed him sore. So the peri queen and her retinue He imprisoned each in a drop of dew By means of his magic power. And each sparkling drop of impris'ning dew Thus becomes an opal of varied hue- For such is the tale they tell. The capricious mood of each sprightly fay Is revealed to us in the changing ray That shines from his crystal cell. -ANON. Etansience.

One thing is certain, this life flies, A tremor, a tlutter, 't is past ! The flower once blown forever dies, We live but to die at last. -L. A. Smru 38 Ulu Emil iinums. VERY one who visits the campus of the University of Mississippi is struck with the beauty of the place. Perhaps June and October never find a more splendid situation for their gor- geous displays in all our picturesque Southland than within that sacred grove of the goddess of wisdom. But those mighty forest trees and vine-clad buildings often wear a gruesome aspect under the shade of night that banishes all memory of their beauty by day. The University chapel was used as a Confederate hospital during the Civil VVar, and within that building and the surrounding groves the deadly misfortunes of that fatal strife were in ample and ghastly evidence. Perhaps some cool-headed student residing upon that cam- pus to-day has never noticed the weird and uncanny influence which those historic groves exert by night. If such is the case, I would ask that student, bearing in mind the mournful war record of the place, to choose some dark, starless night, best of all a midnight in October, when a low east wind is mourning among the treetops and the sere autumn leaves float slowly to earth, whispering vaguely the while,- choose such a night as this, and take a walk all alone around the chapel building and on down through those dark woods past the Dead House in the direction of the railroad depot. The anteroom of Hermaean Hall, in the northwest corner and third floor of the Chapel building, is of all the lonely nooks of that gloomy structure the loneliest and gloomiest. Isolated, still. unfre- quented, perched like an owl's den up among the treetops, it is especi- ally suited for observation and reflection upon the uncanny aspect of those venerable shades by night. ' 139 During the session beginning in September, 188-, I occupied Hermaean anteroom in company with my friend Tomson. He was a big, fearless, lazy fellow who could never sympathize with me in the terrors that tortured my soul on ascending those winding stairs sur- rounded by Stygian darkness, nor hear the whispered echoes, rumb- lings, and groans that smote upon my more imaginative ears. Although I found little pleasure in such a situation, yet I resolutely remained an occupant of the room from the beginning of the session until the March following, when our residence there was brought to a sudden termination by the event which I will here narrate. One stormy evening when a high wind was roaring and a cold rain falling outside, I sat with my books in my room, Tomson having gone up town to visit some lady friend. Bob Fitz, a large brindled cat that had strayed to our quarters near the beginning of the session, lay dozing before a smouldering fire in the grate. .-Xs he dozed he seemed to dream, and awoke at intervals with uneasy growls and whines. leleing vexed at length by his quarreling, I arose from my work and sent him to his pallet just outside the door and shut him out of the room. Returning to my work, I had sat for perhaps an hour with con- centrated attention when I was struck with a sudden impression that some great danger was impending. A distinct odor of smoke, as of burning sulphur, pervaded the room. Going to the door, I peeped out into the dark corridor, The odor of smoke' was still more pungent there, and I noticed Bob Fitz standing erect upon his pallet, trembling as if in a chill, the hairs standing out like porcupine quills upon his body, whining in a terrified manner, and gazing in the direction of the stairs. At that moment I heard a low footstep upon the stairs below, and an occasional knocking, as if some one were carrying a heavy stick as he ascended. Retreating into the room, I closed the door softly and turned the key and thumb latch. As I sat down, Bob Fitz gave a wild, piercing shriek that chilled my very blood: and a moment later there was a soft tapping at the door. I sat riveted to the chair, scarce daring to breathe. Presently, though I did not hear the bolts turn, the door opened wide, and in walked the most startling vision these eyes ever beheld. He seemed to be a soldier, being dressed in a ragged gray mili- tary suit, a battered black hat upon his head, and a tall old army musket 140 at his side. His face was as pale as a bone, and his deep-set eyes peered forth with a varying light like opals. while his dry lips were set in a mirthless smile. As he entered the door a bat which had been Hitting around the room began squeaking and whirling about at a great rate and presently flew sheer against the wall, dropped and lay in a little quivering heap upon the floor. Fixing his glittering eyes upon me the stranger said in a deep, husky voice, speaking slowly as if unused to speech 1 "All alone, are ye? Build up that fire: it is too cold for me up here." I tried to rise, but could not: I seemed to be paralyzed. Seeing my fright, my visitor laughed, a hollow, mocking sort of laugh, and the little wounded bat upon the Hoor squeaked again more loudly than before, and, attempting to rise upon its wings, fluttered into the fire and lay broiling and singeing upon the coals. " NVon't ye fix up the fire F" asked my visitor, laughing again: and then without more ado he leaned his gun against the wall and pro- ceeded to mend the fire himself. Tossing in a few shovelfuls of coal. he blew his breath upon it, and the entire mass blazed up at once as if saturated with kerosene. Then I found my legs. Springing up from my chair, I made a dash for the door: but the soldier's arm was thrust in front of me, and at his cold touch I lost all strength again. Pointing me to a seat, he sat down opposite me, close up to the roaring fire. " I have learned to like it," he said. I sat and gazed into the fire, feeling rather than seeing that his glinting eyes were Fixed upon me. He sat quietly for a while, humming in his unearthly voice a queer old tune that I thought I had heard somewhere a lo-ng time ago. Then he began asking questions. VVhcl was chancellorg who mayor of Qxfordg what were we doing with the negroes: were they all killed out: and many other odd questions that I somehow found voice to answer in a timid fashion. The more I saw of him in my furtive glances the more frightened I became, and I think I should have made another dash for the door had he remained much longer. But at length I heard a faint tapping of a drum down in the grove, and my visitor sprang up from his place. 141 " Good-bye, young fellow," he said, " ye needn't be so much afraid, I only wanted to hear the newsg I was sick in this house once. Some night when ye have time ye might look for that box of mine. W'ould ye like to?" I bowed, hesitatingly. " Then go to the southwest corner of the Chapel, go alone, at night, walk ninety steps toward the railroad bridge, till ye come to a hickory tree: then go twenty-six steps beyond the tree, still toward the bridge, a'nd stop,-maybe ye 'd better do it to-night,-there ye 'll find an iron bolt driven into the ground. Dig up what ye find there. I can't use it any more." Here the drum tapped again, and the soldier grasped his musket and went hastily down the stair. At his exit the fire grew faint, and in a few seconds died down to a sinouldering heap. I do not know how long I stood there like one in a dream, gazing at the open door whence my visitor had departed. W'hen I could com- mand myself I snatched up my hat and went running down the stairs and out of the house. The storm had ceasedg I hurried down the walk toward the post-office, running bodily into the arms of Tomson, nearly knocking him off his feet. " How, now, what 's the matter with you?" he gasped. " You 've broken my collar bone." " Oh,'I'onison,for God's sake come away from this house I" I cried. " Come on with me. It is haunted! A dead soldier has been up there I" " Oh, no: the poor old soldiers are in better business than that, l hope," he answered, " I fear you are not well. Come and take a walk with me in this cool airg it will do you good." I consented to walk with him, his presence lending me new cour- age, but I insisted on leaving that vicinity. As we walked I told him of my visitor, and all that he had said to me. He was evidently puzzled to see me so in earnest, and became very much interested in the affair as I described it to him,but was plainly not inclined to believe all I said. .Xt last he suggested that we then and there search out the spot desig- nated and look for the spike driven into the ground. Accordingly we returned to the southwest corner of the Chapel-all my terror reviving afresli at sight of the gloomy structure-took ninety steps in what we 142 estimated in the darkness to be the direction of the railroad bridge, and, sure enough, we came up against a large hickory tree. Now it was Tomson's turn to become excited. " This is the tree," he said, " your friend was right in his count." I noticed that his voice trembled. As we passed around the tree I remarked that the next count would bring us against the Library building, and indeed we had taken but eleven steps when we reached the wall. VVe stood staring at one another in the darkness. " This building was erected since the war, and the soldier's box is buried beneath it!" whispered Tomson hoarsely. "Aye, it is lost: it is lost l" muttered a deep, husky voice, and a chorus of hollow voices chuckled in a low, repressed, unearthly fashion. I could feel my hair rising. On looking in the direction of the voices we could see nothing but gloomy ranks of forest trees and a gray fog floating among them, but upon our startled ears distinctly fell a sound as ofa body of men marching to the low taps of a drum. " Wliere,-wliat in the world are they?" I whispered through chat- tering teeth. "The devil knows!" answered Tomson. I seized his arm and we started for the West Dormitory. Our walk soon became a run, and in a very few moments we reached the building, quite out of breath, not having once looked back as we ran, There was little sleep in Madison Hall that night. VVe told our story and went to bed with the boys, and most of the night was spent in discussing the mysterious event. Early next morning a crowd of us hurried to the Hermaean anteroom. VVe found the door wide open and no apparent change within the room. But other eyes than mine had looked upon the stranger and suf- fered from fear of him. Gn his pallet beside the door stood poor old Bob Fitz with every hair on his body erect, back bowed, tail in air, staring wildly with his cold, dead eyes in the direction of the stairway.

Since each on this amorous earth Since each in this glad world born Will give to his choice, Will oH'er his love - His music, his fame or his worth, Will give to her blossom or thorn, The song of his voice 5 A raven or dove 5 Since April will give to the pine A murmur of leaves And the night a sweet anodyne To the heart that grieves 3 Since the air will give to the bough And since when it comes with a roar, The linnet that sings, To iind there its bliss, And the morn to the poppy allow The billow will give to the shore The dewdrop that clings 5 A bitter-sweet kiss , I give to you love in this hour, By passion possessed, WVhatever treasure or dower I have in me best! Receive then my dreaniiest thought, Accept then the vows without number Which freighted with fears, My heart ever breathes, Like a rose from the night Helds brought, The love which no sorrows encuinber, Comes dripping with tears I No shadow ensheathes ! My transports of maddened delight, From jealousy free, The lips of my song which alight On the lips of thee, My spirit which sails afar My muse which the hands of the hour On the ocean of chance, Are rocking to sleep, Which has for its pole and its star From whose eyes the tear-drops shower, Only thy glance, Whenever you weep. Accept then, my darling, my best, My star without stain, The heart of which nothing would rest, If love should be ta'en. DABNEY MJSRSHALL. 147 .

" Old Croce " with his famous orchestra played the most entrancing music, and inspired by these strains of melody the feet of the dancers glided over the polished Hoor in tune with the music's rhythm. The sheen of shimmering silk, the Hash of white linen, the rounded arms and shining eyes, sombre black of the dress suits and the radiant variety of hues in the costumes of the fair, all formed a vast picture of loveliness, a phantasm of rich- ness, life and color. Many hearts were lost that night and many were found. Many were the promises broken: not a few were made. Anguish, agony, woe and misery pulsed side by side with the throb of delight, ecstacy and love. The night was perfect. A Southern moon vied without with the chandeliers within. The music inspired, hearts throbbed, many feet danced. At twelve, the witching hour of midnight, the revelers strayed in couples, in groups, to the banquet-hall. The luxurious viands there prepared, conspired with the rest to form a perfect reign of pleasure. Through it all, however, some occasionally yielded to the melancholy thought that this ball marked the laying down of the old order and the taking up of the new. Hearts bound by ties of love must sadly part, the Seniors must leave the dear old campus where they had stayed so longg college days and college joys must be abandoned for the con- Hicts of life. But this melancholy was fleeting, and but added new zest to the dancers' zeal. At the flush of dawn, as the pink rays of the risen sun glowed in the east, the sad. sweet notes of " Home, Sweet Home " stirred many a heart. To the inspiration of this tender, gentle, old tune, pledges were repledged, farewells were said, and the ball of ninety-eight became a sweet memory of the " storied past." 149 Za -S xg , .T Y L , U V. x 'Y . if 1 A 9 -Ii PLZ' gb! f J J ,Mx ,f C E5 ffffxgif .

On a shadowed rustic seat Her dear blue eyes beseech 9 Placed there beneath the trees. The lashes scarce retain I sit with a maiden sweet. Two tears welling in each, Not heeding time, tho' it flees. So great seemeth her pain. Lights glance from strands of gold That glitter on my shoulder. Her voice quivers with love untold As she begs me to enfold her. Her lips are pursed for a kiss, I coldly from me shove her, Un her cheeks glows a vivid tiush As frigid as an icy attic, - As she seeks wildly for this bliss, For I play the angry lover, But I still her pleadings hush, In these amateur dramatics.

VINYARD. 153 which 'Z' HE was a decided belle. Tom and Harry both loved her madly and were paying her devoted addresses. She was an enigma to them both for neither was able to say she cared more for him than for the other. They met the day before the great class football game for the championship of the University, and held a council of war. They determined upon a bold move and proceeded together to the abode of their beloved. She met them at the door and bestowed upon each the same sweet smile and word of welcome. "Ah, I say, Miss Grace," began Tom, hesitatingly, " we have come to-day on rather a peculiar mission and want you to decide some- thing deucedly important to us both." " Oh, Tom, I am so interested, do proceed," she said, innocently. " Well-er, the fact is, Miss Grace, that-Oh, hang it! we both love you, don't you see, and we came to-day to ask you to decide between us. One of us surely has been making an ass of himself long enough." " Well, you ought not to ask such an embarrassing question before Harryg now, perhaps, if each had asked separately I could have answered readily." " But we are determined to know, you see," chimed in Harry, who up to this time had contented himself with admiring her personality. " Now, let me see," continued she, thoughtfully, " you are on the Senior team to-morrow, Tom, are you not?" " Yes," asserted Tom, " full-back." "And you are on the Junior?" asked she, turning to Harry. " Half-back, yes," said Harry proudly. 154 " XYell. I have itg if in to-morrow's ga1ne it should chance that you two should be pitted against each other in an important play, I shall decide for him who is victorious?" This was not satisfactory to the pair, but this and only this was all that could be gotten from her that evening. They spent the rest of the evening wishing each other in Hades. The next afternoon the football field was crowded with spectators and the partisians of each team were rending the air with their respec- tive yells. Both Tom and Harry noticed Grace with a Sophomore, but he did not count. They both looked only at her and she seemed to them prettier than ever. Each took a solemn vow to conquer his rival or die. The first half was over and neither side had scored. The crowd was wrought up to the highest pitch of expectancy. All were doubtful as to the outcome of the game between the evenly matched elevens. A few of the Juniors, who were inclined to be sporty. were waving bills in the faces of the more sedate Seniors vainly endeavoring to get a bet. The whistle for the second half to begin was blown and each team came up determined and confident. For the first fifteen minutes the ball was worked backward and forward with no advantage gained by either team. Only five minutes more remained for play and on the next line up the Juniors, who had the ball, determined to make a touchdown by strategy. A double pass was made and Harry shot around the end with the ball. passed all pursuers, and darted madly toward his opponents goal. All now depended on Tom, who was the only Senior who had not been left behind. :Xs the distance closed between them all was still: the crowd held their breath for the final moment was at hand. Tom, thinking of Grace. crouched low and prepared to spring. The next instant- Right here we stop, gentle reader. XYe are loatli to do so, but necessity compels.

As the yellow fever epidemic delayed the opening of the University until the middle of November, it was impossible for us to accomplish much in football, but in the few weeks left to us we developed some excellent material, from which we expect great things next year. We played only two games. University vs. Tulane, 9-14, at New Orleans 5 University vs. St. Thomas Hall, 9-2, at University of Mississippi. 159 FLOYD. EDMONDS, SLO.-KN, LONGEST, .

Every institution has certain customs peculiar to itself which have existed since a " time whereof the memory of man runneth not to the contrary." They become a part of the college life and their strict observance is a matter of college pride. Miss. has her customs, some of which are very interesting, others amusing. A person visiting the campus on Friday night in examination week of the last term will see a sight which may seem to him a little strange, but which the students apparently take as a matter of course. lf he believes in the existence of ghosts, he will probably be strengthened in his superstitious views. Certainly those strange sheet- enveloped figures are not of the eartlig certainly their wild grotesque dance is not a human institution: certainly that low, bellowed chant is different from the music of the worldg certainly those incomprehen- sible words belong to no language. But there is no cause for alarm. VVe have not yet turned over our campus to spooks. Those dreadful objects are perfectly harmlessg they are only Senior Greek students. They don't have those fits very often, only once in a lifetime: to-morrow they will be all right, They will doff the sheet and don the Senior's cap and gown g they will discard that fantastic dancing step and assume a majestic, dignified stride. They will translate those incomprehensible words ff zalwg exe: rsrels- mlueu " into " Thank heaven we have finished Greekf' And those words explain their behavior of last evening. They have made known to the world that they are no longer students of Euripides, Sophocles and Aristophanes by publicly and formally burn- ing a Greek Jack. 170 Regularly once a year the Juniors become magnanimous and give a ball to the Seniors. This is a beautiful custom and one that we would not discontinue for any consideration. Several things may be said about this ballg it takes place in Commencement week and is called " The Junior Promenadefi It is easily the most important social event of the whole year. The Seniors of course have comps. because the ball is given to them: the Juniors have comps. because they are running' things. while the Sophomores and Freshmen pay the whole freight simply because they are Sophomores and Freshmen. " Crackaloo S" yells some fellow from the gallery of the South Side dormitory. and immediately a crowd begins to assemble. Then fol- lows a rush on the post-office and barber-shop for small change. Xow everything is ready and the game begins, a game which is regularly played at the University of Mississippi, and seldom played elsewhere. The name " crackaloo " may suggest the character of the game and it may notg at any rate the explanation is simple. Each man tosses a nickel into the air and the one whose nickel falls closest to a crack wins the pile. Spring is once more with us. The foliage is thick and luxuriant. Across the green grass the butterflies may be seen Hitting from flower to flower. The sun casts a lazy cover over all. and a languorous breeze blows softly through the trees. The whole effect is sleepy and an irre- sistible laziness permeates the atmosphere. From the dormitory galleries. half hidden by the trees, comes an occasional yawn or a drowsy song. The monotonous tinkle of a crack- aloo game comes to the ear from somewhere in the distance. Presently some one is seen crossing the campus. probably to a lecture or on some necessary errand. for people don't walk unless they have to a day like this. Then is heard from the dormitory gallery a whistle. perhaps languid but nevertheless sure and to the time of this music the pedestrian wends his way. The walker may go fast or slow. slouching or erect, but the whistler never loses time. This is no occasional occurrencegentle reader,buta custom deeply rooted in the hearts of every dormitory inhabitant. It began no one knows when and will cease when the circle is Gone and the dormitories b are no more. It is only the " Fool's Marchf' 171 No joke works so well as an old one. The proof of this statement may be seen in the annual dormitory fire. It comes with as much regu- larity and certainty as the Freshman Class, nevertheless it never fails to work most successfully. Let us " join the crowd " for one evening and see how it is done. Part of our number get things in readiness for the blaze, while the others pay a visit to the chapel bell. Let us stay with the first division. One of the large ash-pans which sits in every hall is seized upon and its contents emptied in the middle of the Hoor. Then it is filled with some intiammable substance, usually matting, and placed in the hall that is to be the scene of the conflagration. The coal oil cans of several kind neighbors are surreptitiously extracted from their rooms and the contents poured upon the matting. VVhen all is ready a match is dropped into the pan and in a moment the whole hall apparently is in a blaze. NYe are the first to see it and are not slow in giving the alarm. Now the boys at the Lyceum do their part, ring the bell furi- ously for a few minutes and " then tear it out " before the proctor has time to reach them, Things take care of themselves now. XYe retire to the upper gallery and arm ourselves with several buckets of H20 with which to receive inquiring rubber necks from the other dormitory. It is hard to understand why a circus should ever come to Oxford. If the clowns had their way about it I am afraid they would never honor us with a visit. XYe always sit together: this is a case of must for as soon as a student enters the tent his name is yelled by a hundred voices until he joins the crowd and becomes one of us. As soon as our forces are assembled we invariably set up a yell for Dixie and woe to the circus whose band disregards this request. XVe usually expend most of our energy in making life miserable for the showmen, but sometimes for the sake of variety we roll a Freshman or two. Un one occasion we felt sorry for a clown whose desperate efforts to be funny had brought down upon him several horse-laughs, and we helped him out by suggesting the following joke, which worked admirably. He walked into the ring with a serious expression on his face and a tele- gram in his hand. Holding out the telegram he said, " If Mr. M-- is in the crowd he will please stand upf' Mr. M-1 being an unsus- pecting Freshman, rose to his full height. " Mr. M--," continued 172 the clown, " please announce to your friends that there will be a con- cert after the big show is over." Nobody who comes to the University of Mississippi escapes the horse-laugh. It greets every new man soon after his arrival upon the campus. Not only does it select new men for its victims, but no stu- dent is out of danger until he has received his dip. and said good-bye to Oxford. The horse-laugh is the most cruel invention of all ages. As an instrument of torture it surpasses all the engines of the Inquisition. A group of students are discussing the weather or a kindred sub- ject. Some fellow is imprudent enough to make a pun or get off a gag. Then he is sorry that he spoke for he has brought down upon himself the vengeance of the crowd. He is overwhelmed by an awful chorus of sounds in which are combined the hiss. the laugh, and the groan. If you have never received a horse-laugh you can not understand the feelings of the victim. His agony is intense. His first thought is of flight, but escape is impossible for the crowd has surrounded him. His face assumes in turn every color of the rainbow, and his attempted smile is a sickly grin. But the horse-laugh, though severe. is very use- ful. XVithout it life at the University would be a burden for it is our only safeguard against stale jokes. and our most effective means of making Freshmen cautious about expressing their opinions. A new custom has recently sprung up among us. The musical organizations of the University have instituted a series of out-of-door concerts. It is at the hour of gloaming, the time of reverie and dreams. when the " cares that infest the day " are silently fading. that the mind is most sensitive to the softening influence of music. Gnce or twice each week at this time a dozen or so students lazily reclining upon the grass, " soften rocks," and " bend the knotted oaks ' by their Orphean strains. XVe earnestly hope that these concerts may be continued until we can call them with confidence an established custom. U How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank g Here will we sit and let the sounds of music Creep in our ears g Soft stillness and the night Become the touches of sweet harmony." 173 ff 2, Q 53 ,'4, f eg, :I i2-59 ' 'ef xi ii, .if f . -, '1r:2'2:1Z.725f- fa 1 241 2? 6' ,:-35-E'r?f?fZ!Zaf ' i2i?,a., .1 , 'Ml ,2'f,f5'2. ,, 3 A Q' i f 1' X' -5 1 XX f ' - ,1"" AN V f ,X 3, X ip vi -f SS X X X ,if fi L 'I -,f1sQf" ix, g.'.1' - -- 4, f Q'-.QQ M, , f 1 X dsx' L' Y f f 1 1' 3.p,, ' 4- -sf-s X L M ,.-.f 11f4' ,vrl l k f :,.:fq, -c e r w fr 'ft' f :H si-g2sf1 ",.Xn-fag f - sas '1 4? -. -,. .

" Home, Sweet Home " old Croce is playing, and the gray dawn comes in the eastern windows. The years have passed as the ball has passed-like a dream in a summer night. Ah, the thoughts and mem- ories that Hood the brain! The time is almost over now. lYith the rising sun comes a new era. Youth, with its golden, glorious freedom and fire, is passing-boyhood is gone. The dawning day brings man- hood with all its cares and troubles growing year by year. " Home. sweet. sweet home."-the music is low and tender now- a moment more and all my college days will be placed in the quickly fading colors of the past. My arm draws closer 'round the little form within my clasp. A word. whispered low and soft-an answering look. a breathed reply. " Home, home! sweet, sweet home Y"-but in my life there will be a new home, and by my side a partner fair and sweet and dear: and the realities of manhood surpass the dreams of youth.

KING, "Primus Donnusf' I87 marie. By james Yance Bowen. fThe scene ofthe story is the New Orleans of the last century, just preceding and immediately following the arrival of H Bloody " O'Reilly with authority as Governorij , YT I myself tell you it is so. I received the letter from the hands of Monsieur Yillere himself. I met him on the rue Bourbon and he was so excited that he did not notice my snufifbox. He called to me when I was a hundred steps away and gave me the letter, and it says that an enormous Spanish Fleet is at the Balise and Lieutenant-General Count O'Reilly is to be our Governorf, The speaker was a medium-sized man of middle age, and his com- panion was a young man of rather slender build, with well-formed features and handsome black eyes now snapping with eagerness. " But we will fight," said he, laying his hand on his rapier. " Gr, if they are too many, why not cut their cable and send them drifting, as we did with Ulloa and his vile crew?" "Alas, Noyan! O'Reilly comes with troops behind him: Ulloa was at the mercy of five hundred brave citizens. lVe are lost! XVe will be crushed beneath the heel of the foreigner and our children will forget la belle France! Come to Madam Pradel's to-night if you have no more pressing engagement. The matter will be discussed." " Oh, Monsieur Lafreniere, I do not tie myself to Marie's apron- strings so closely. She will free me at a word if it is important to be at Madanie's, and I plainly see that every moment is precious. Adieu, Monsieur !" ' 188 Madam Pradel's residence was one of those large two-story man- sions with pillars reaching to the slated roof, so rarely seen nowadays. It was situated beyond the fortifications, about where Common and Carondelet Streets cross to-day. Its rooms, large and stately, were filled with handsome furniture and hung with tapestry which rumor said had once adorned the dwelling of royalty, and the cabinets were filled with rare china and souvenirs of younger days in Iirance. And then the gardens ! VVith loving care her gardeners tended the rare and handsome flowers with such success that many a sigh could be detected as some less favored dame grndgingly admitted the superi- ority of Madam Pradel's roses. And there it was in the sweet evening- tide that some few of the gentlemen of Nouvelle Orleans-the bluest blooded of those blue blood French-delighted to meet and sup with the brilliant Madame, who, it' was rumored, was setting her cap for Monsieur Foucaut, the Kings Commissioner. And in those quiet gardens how many of these brave men-Marquis, Milhet, Masan, de Boisblanc, Villere,-discussed the policies that guided the life of the young colony. The sweet odor of the magnolias and the jasmines commingled with the pungent fumes of tobacco as these men sat beneath the boughs in the cool of the evening and mapped out the destiny of this miniature Paris set down in the wilderness of the New world. Here had been written that protest and demand upon Governor Ulloa, signed by the delegates to the convention called by these men from all parts of the province. which resulted in the departure of the Spaniards and the leaving of Louisiana to its own devices for a short breathing spell. Here had been discussed the war. and here were heard the mutterings of rage when the news had come that the colony had been filliped to Spain by Louis XV as one casts aside an empty filbert shell. And from these counsels went the commissioners to Paris to protest and explain, returning in a twelve-month, not having been allowed even to present their petition. nk ai: 2: :Ex rf: 22: S: " But your father told me he had read the letter, Marie, and that I was to come to Madame Pradel's to-night and talk over the matter." " O Henri, you are not going, I trust? I would that you might keep aside from such entanglements. To think of them makes me feel-oh! I know not what! O Henri, do not go! VVhat if you do not 189 succeed? XVhat if this O'Reilly sends you to exile, or worse? Henri! Henri! meddle not with these things, and do not go to the Madames I beseech you l" " Xlfhy, Marie, are you jealous of her charming niece? In sooth, I am sorely tempted to join the ranks of her already large number of admirers," said he. She rose with a frown and an impatient gesture. He, too, arose, and as he turned, the portieres were brushed aside. Bowing low, he kissed the hand of a lady some forty years. " Your daughter desires me, Madame, not to follow the example of your illustrious husband and take to affairs of state. A plantation life, I presume, is more to her taste. I trust you will show her other- wise. But I must hasten. Adieu, Madame! Adieu, Marie!" How pleasant it is to behold the handwriting of one we love! Next to the actual presence it is of all things most desired. No wonder, then, Noyan kissed the note handed him next morning, saying: "Ah! the dear one wants me to come early to-night to atone for my absence last evening. And so I will !" He broke the seal : "MoNs1EUR TTENRI NOY,fXN Dr: BIENVILLE: " Since my commands rest so lightly upon you, I release you from all obligation to me. I trust that Madame's beautiful niece may fill my place most acceptably. MARIE." "July 25th." The next month was spent in feverish work in the interest of the uprising. It was a race between work and the pistol. The latter were the quicker way of finding surcease, but the world still had attractions, even in his great grief, and work finally conquered. His attempts to see Marie were fruitless, and her father, who had deeply sympathized with him, told him her mind was set on going to Paris on the first ship and becoming a religieuse. He became a leader of the hot-headed impetuous younger faction. No voice was raised so high, no Hst struck palm more forcibly. But his counsels were soon set aside, and submission to the Don was decided upon. Lafreniere, Milhet, and Marcus went down the river and endeavored to explain to O'Reilly the expulsion of Ulloa. The Count received them kindly, the delegates were kept to dinner, and .wo went away full of hope. On the next morning the Spanish fleet lay before the town, and Lieutenant-General Count Alexander O'Reilly took the reins of government into his own hands. History tells us of the reports of the traitor Aubry, and the arrest of the leaders of the protest, charged with being rebels and conspirators against the King of Spain. Among these were Noyan de Bienville and his brother: Lafreniere, Caresse, Masen, Petit. Doucet. Marquis, and others. They were placed in the barracks under guard and finally brought to trial. They made no defense, denying the jurisdiction of the court. This being overruled, they were tried to the satisfaction of O'Reilly, and the first five were sentenced to be hanged the following clay. Henri Noyan was taken to the eastern end of the barracks-two long, low buildings stretching for the length of a block near the western fortifications, with a high wall between, in which swung the massive outer door which had in times past opened to the command of some of these now transported here to spend the last few hours before a death of degradation. Noyan's cell was bare save for a chair and a pallet, and after a care- ful examination the captain of the guard bound his prisoner's hands behind him and turned to go. " Prepare thyself as best thou canst, Monsieur, for to-morrow thou cliest. I will return at sunrise to conduct thee." " IVithout confession, Senor? Surely you will not deny me the offices of the Holy Church?l' " Not I, surely, but my master. Thou hast been rebellious against thy lawful king and deserve most justly the rope's end which he grants thee. But he would not that our Holy Church defile herself-Nay, tug not so at thy bonds! I do but repeat my masters words. As for myself-peace be with thee." Left alone, the young man sat down on the pallet and tried to think. But the thoughts came too fast for thinking. The mind, though fifty times as quick as lightning's flash, sometimes is over- whelmed in thoughts-and then God pity the man who has not the strength to say and force obedience: "Avaunt, ye unknown and unknowable, and leave me to rest in peace ll' Long into the night he watched the stars twinkling through the narrow window high up in the wall, and finally sank into a troubled 191 sleep. He was disturbed after a few hours by the sound of voices near his cell, and lay listening, half believing it was still a dream. " I can not read, holy father, and I have gone beyond my orders in admitting you. You will be gone quickly, will you not? for my life shall pay if you are found." The priest replied in a low voice which seemed thick with emo- tion : " Have no fear. this order from thy master is thy safeguard." The soldier seized it, saying: " Nevertheless, Father, you must talk through the bars. I have not the keys to the cells." And as the priest staggered back a step the soldier sank on one knee and said, " Your blessing, holy father." The priest turned away his head, and in a trembling voice pro- nounced almost in a whisper the sacred words. Then as the soldier rose and walked to the other end of the corridor, the priest glided to the door of the first cell and called softly: " Henri, art thou there?" He answered: " Who calls?" and then springing to the door he cried: " God is good to let me see thee once more! But why comest thou, Marie, and in this disguise?" " Listen," she said, " I heard thy sentence and hurried to Father Alphonse for help. VVhen he heard he threw off this gown, saying he would see if his infiuence would not enable him to have your sentence modified. I waited, but he did not return, so I wildly thought of a plan, seized a prison pass upon the Father's desk, rolled up the cassock and came away. O, Henri! every hour of waiting has been torture, but I dared not come before. And now these bars can not be passed, and I can not help thee. Thou must take this dagger and do what thou canst." 'K No, no, Marie, my life is forfeit, and it is well. It is worthless without thee. But thou forgivest me, sweetheart?" " Forgive," she cried in agony, " Say no more. Every word is piercing my heart sharper than this dagger. But take it, Henri! Force thy way to freedom-and to me !" " No," he said sadly, " I am young. I may not in honor escape unless all accompany me. Butthy father--" 192 " O, heavens l" exclaimed Marie, "forgive thy distracted servant. Lead me to him, Henri. But thou canst notl thou canst not! I go to seek him." She rushed down the corridor, and as she passed out of her lover's range of vision he saw a flash of light full on her face. And as the black-clothed arm swung swiftly forward he heard a sound as of a body falling, and then quickly another. All was silence. Then he called softly, " Marie! Marie!" A moan was his answer. At last he saw the black-robed figure slowly lifting itself up. She came back tremb- ling and pale as alabaster. " Marie, what hast thou done ?" His voice was full of pity. " Oh, Henri, he saw my face and seized my hood, and I--oh, what have I done? VVhat have I done? God pity me, I struck him to the heart l" " Thou couldst do no less, but thou must not tarry here, Marie. The captain may come at any moment. See, the crescent moon rising over the housetops yonder warns us 't is nearing morning. Come. dearest, do not tremble so. Thou must bring the dagger to me and search for the paper thou gavest himf' Slowly and as one in a daze, she obeyed him. " Now go home quickly, hide thy gown, and tell no one, not even Father Alphonse. Go quickly, the door will lock itself behind thee." " Must we part thus," she murmured, and then " Farewell, Henri." And as he kissed the hand that convulsively grasped the bar, he whis- pered: " Farewell, Marie, forever." She had not been gone long when the dead body was discovered by the sergeant with the relief. Instantly all was commotion. Minute Search revealed no trace of the murderer, the cells and doors were found secure, and when at last a bloody dagger was found in the straw on which Noyan was lying in pretended sleep, the mystery was deep- ened. " He could not have gotten out, and no one could have gotten in," the soldiers argued, and soon worked themselves into a frenzy of superstitious fear. Noyan doggedly denied all knowledge of the deed, and all too quickly the hour came for the execution. Their sentence had been modified to shooting. 193 Noyan sought and obtained permission to send a message to his betrothed, and then those five brave men marched out on that morning of October 25th, one hundred and thirty years ago, to die as glorious a death as any martyr for liberty in the history of the world. And when, years after, the Mother Superior of a convent in the environs of Paris, noted for her piety and penances, passed into sweet rest beyond, among her few effects was found a scrap of paper, tear- dimmed and finger-worn, on which were these words: " Lament not, brave one! Farewell l" And the signature, almost undecipherable, was but the word " Henrif, 194 Eu memnrg. Memory is for me a kaleidoscope into which I put every bright bit of experience, every rose-colored dream and each sunny spot of life. Then when existence seems almost unbearable, when present, past and future are the same dull gray of despair, kind Mnemosyne turns my eye to her kaleidoscope and revolves it for me, and as my mind dwells upon the pleasures that have been mine, hope comes again and courage for a new attack upon coy Fortune. mnulh 31 Zfinb.

ANY years ago the authorities of the University appreciated the necessity of the student body having a thorough training in voice and expression, and hence established the school of Elocution and Oratory, and to-day it is one of the most progressive departments in the University: and is, indeed, the pride of every stu- dent. The course is well graded and extends through a period of two years. The work done in this department can not well be over- estimated. Every effort is made to maintain a high standard, and to make still further advances in the succeeding year. It has been said by an alumnus of the University in speaking to a body of young men, " My young friends, you will find in after life, that nothing helps you more in your dealings with your fellow man than a well-trained voice and a clear head. You can find no department better adapted to give you this training than that of Elocution and Oratoryf' The present high standard of this department is due to the instruc- tor, Miss Sarah McGee Isom. Miss Isom was graduated from the Boston School of Oratory. She has studied with the foremost teachers of America and has made a special study of her art abroad. 196 MISS SARAH MCGEE ISOM r ' H 5 nw 6 K -, .

HIS morning of my new life has just dawned, the morning of a life which will be so unlike the old, troubled, lonely life that I can hardly believe that I am not still dreaming. Yet I am sure I am awake. I have just arisen from a troubled sleep, full of strange, incom- prehensible jumbles of dreams, and sit here away up in my poor little fourth-story room, thinking of the changes to-day will work. My old life will be put behind and I will be ushered into a new one by the girl I wed to-night. Now will new possibilities be opened for me, with the entreeinto highest society which my wife's wealth and position will give me, ambitions which as a poor man were mere castles in the air will now become living possibilities. Congratulations of friends have been showered upon nie, but I can feel none of the elation they say I should feel, instead a weary feeling of oppression holds me down. So for the last time I gaze around my poor bachelors room and then draw my chair to the window and feast once more my eyes on the scenery of the little park beneath me. Then to catch the cooling morning breeze I desert my chair and seat myself in the window, with head leaned list- lessly against the casement: and memory busies itself. My eyes fix themselves upon the grand old oaks which for so many years have stood the same, only changing to become more strong and beautiful, standing the same year after year, to show fickle man how true to Mistress Nature they can be. Below me, in the park, a small pumping station is at work, its labored breathing sounding like the last gasps of some human being. The steam from its throat drifts up in irregular masses through the oaks, dissolving just as they pass from my view, and my mind pictures each mass as a soul freed from 199 earth's sorrow, wending its way to the rest and peace above. My fancy gives to each cloud the form and face of some long-departed friend. Friends of boyhood, of early manhood, float past but each face gazes into mine with such sad disapproval that my soul sinks lower and lower. Again comes the gasping of the pump and like lightning my mem- ory goes back fifteen years. 224 21 P14 P51 2? Pk . Once more Margaret and I wander over the hills of our old home where we had grown up together, and again I live over that happy day when pulling some fiowers of our favorite bower, I crown her and ask her to be the queen of this life for me, telling her of the love that has long been growing greater, till I can no longer keep it from her, and swearing to her that life for me will contain no more joy without her promise to link her young life with mine. And my darling prom- ised. Then memory travels on to my home-leaving, how I kissed my sweetheart good-bye and assured her that soon I would wrest fortune from the great city, and then would I return and claim my own. Then with a throb of pain, memory touches lightly the next year with its discouragements and failures, with its one pleasure in Margaret's dear, encouraging letters. Then comes the last letter, telling me my love was dying. My weary heart dwells upon that last scene as sadly I kneel by my dying love and swear in my agony that never again will these lips breathe love to another woman, that till death I will be true. And Margaret, with the glory of heaven already shining in her angel face. looked long into my eyes until her gaze touched my heart's innermost recesses and satisfied with what she saw, she whispered, " Remember," and left me. il: lt it And the old love rushes in a great tide over me and fills me with loathing for the faithlessness that to-night's ceremony will seal upon me. But honor, the honor of a man's promise to a long-lost love 3 the honor of a faithless man's prom- ise to a living woman, tears me with its confiict and I wearily wish for death to solve the terrible problem. And from below comes again those gasps, but no clouds of forms now, they have ceased as though to make way for a central figure. The moans suddenly turn into my Margaret's last sobs and feeling that 200 my mind is leaving me, I lean forward. I try not to listen or look, but in vain, and gazing down I see coming to me a cloud, purer, whiter than before, and from it comes the labored whisper, " Remem- ber." Forgetting all, I lean farther, and as the shape comes nearer, my Margaret looks upon me, looks with the same smile she used to have when she asked some favor of me and in her face shone the same loving confidence, as she leaned toward me and said the one word, " come," and her thin hand closes over mine and draws me as of old. But I resist, and the dear face Hoats upward, looking back with such terrible despair that my love for her conquers and I cry " Margaret, wait for me," I step forth and with a swift rush through space, a ter- rible crash, my soul follows and honor is satisfied by death.

They were translating French. She held the book and read assiduously while he looked at the little curls around her ears, and her long lashes and taper- ing fingers. Then he drew the book gently from those lingers and warned her not to work so hard. Hours came and wentg procession after procession of students streamed from the Lyceum, still they sat- but they read no more French that day. It was all sunshine. In June, the young nian's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of Hunk. She sat in the library, lonely and a little sad. She was reading French again. He came in breathless and accosted her with the remark: " Say, do you read French? Translate this, will you?" She remembered the early springtime and it made her a little happy. K' I have not seen you in a long while," she faltered at the end of a paragraph. " No?" he said raising his eyebrows. " lVell, go on, please." At the end of another paragraph, she stopped for a, breath and stole a glance at his face and hair. " I was thinking of you the other day and wondering," she began. He snatched the book from her tapering fingers and thrust it under his arm. " Guess I 'll go to recitation " was all he said. Then she got up and looked out of a window at the tall, scrawny, oak tree. 203 i-lis Inst Appearance. LONE in his room, with its bare uncarpeted floor, stood Benoli, the singer. Many years had passed since he had stood behind the footlights of the Italian stage. It did not, however, seem so long ago to him, for, though he had had no human company for many years, yet an old piano in the corner had been his constant friend. XVith it he had passed many an hour, and had poured out to it his soul's full yearning. No human companion, did I say? but the piano was almost human to Benoli. To it he told his sorrows and his joys, and in it he had the warmest of sympathizers. Benoli stood with his hands folded behind his back, and in a sad, dreamy manner looked out of the narrow window. A smile came across his face, and turning his head, he looked with a tender glance at the old friend in the corner. " No, I'll not be with you long, friend of my life," he said, " for time is adding wrinkle after wrinkle to this old face of mine. XYe have grown old together and have blessed each other's lives : I would that we could pass beyond together." He bowed his head upon his chest for a moment, then walked over and sat down before his piano. An old and much-used copy of " Il Trovatore " was on the stand before him. "Seems to me," he said, as he opened the book at the " El Miserere, " it seems to me when I sing this, that I am young again." He struck the opening chord. "My old-time fervor comes back to me, and I long to be on the stage again. But they say I am old, too old. There, I love that chord, for it stirs my soul within me. It brings back to me the memories of a distant past, when life in me was young." He raised his voice, and with infinite tenderness and feeling sang the " Misereref' Benoli bowed his head in reverie, while in spite of him a tear stole down his cheek. 204 He was awakened from his dreaming by a knock at the door. The knob turned, and a stranger entered. Benoli rose to greet him. " Is this Signor Benoli?" the man asked. " I am he," replied Benoli. "And who, may I ask, are you?" " Sir, I come to ask a favor," said the man, paying no attention to Benoli's question. "And as I have much to say, let us be seated that we may the better hear one another." TYhen they seated themselves, the stranger continued. " Sir. this is to be the last night of " Il Trovatore " and we are without a leading tenor. There is no one to take his place,-unless-unless you are willing to sing your old role again. I have come to ask you this." "Sing my old role again?" thought Benoli, " XYhy should I not? XYhy should I not?" and a smile came over his face. fl rk rk 251 231 . A great crowd had gathered to hear the last rendition of " Il Tro- vatoref' The old singer sang as he had never sung before. It was as if his whole soul was being poured forth in notes almost divine. " I am not too old to sing," he thought. " My voice still has its sweetness." And he breathed a prayer that he might sing as he felt. The " Miserere " ended. A n1on1ent's hushg and then the crowd went wild with applause. Benoli did not respond. Benoli the singer was dead. Rest had come to him who had sighed to rest." 205 A Brag nr Emu. Sample of a l7reshman's petition to the Faculty: IDE.-XR l7.xcL'I.'1'Y:-I want to drop math. and English and Latin and Chemistry and Rhetoric and take up Prep. Math. and Pedagogy and Elocution. Please let me do it. Lovingly, XIIVIAN Ricks. Kretschmar's Sollioquy: Nature is indeed inconsistent. NVhy should such an intelligent animal as a dog be unable to express his opinion while ignorant Fresh- men spout theirs on all occasions. The arrangement of courses of study has changed in almost every university in the last few years. Formally the courses were ironclad. In order to get a certain degree every man must do the same specified work. Now we have prescribed and optional studies. Laughing at the Chancellor's chapel jokes forms the principal part of the prescribed or compulsory " Quark " at the University of Mississippi. It is essential to every degree. It is also necessary for candidates for certain degrees to appreciate Dr. .lohnson's jokes t?j but this is dead easy, because the Doctor is very lenient and always helps the class out by his own hearty laughter. DEAR BETH:-As you know, I ani a full-fledged Varsity man now-when you speak of the University you must always say Varsity, you know. I like it fine here. The only things I find that are not to my liking are dressing and undressing. College life would be " bully," if a man 206 could sleep all the time except when he was eating and wearing golfs and smoking. Say, Bete, I have got the cutest girl stuck on me: dead gone, wants to marry me. She 's got eyes that shine and a n1outh,- but I never was a poet. VVhat do you reckon, the fellows here don't know who wrote Thanatopsis. Professor Lipscomb asked the other day and I told him Vlfilliam Jennings Bryan, and the whole class laughed. Bete, I have turned out to be what you call an athlete. Play base- ball, put up a mighty hot race for Hrst base ou the Yarsity and came pretty near getting a place on the Freshman team, but Hugh XYhite got it, though everybody knows I can beat him. You ought to come here if you like to go in swimming. Tult. that 's what we call Chancellor, has built two places on the campus for fountains without the fountains. XYell. the other night it rained and about two inches of water was caught in them. Gee! what a time we did have swimming that night, I and Oliver, he 's my roommate, " Kid " I call him. Had an awful time last night: went calling and it was dark, black as tar. I fell in a ditch and you can bet I did " cuss " that old fool St. Yenus, the god of night. XYhat did he turn on his weather for the very night I went to see that girl, a veritable queen? VVell, Bete, it waxeth late, as the upper classmen say. Say. those fellows, the Juniors and Seniors won't let a Freshman carry a cane. and we have to call them " Mister " and lift our hats to them. I thought once I wouldn't, but now I've changed. Good-bye, Bete. indite an epistle Lthat 's smart, ain't it FJ to Your bosom friend, JAMIE BILLUPS. 207 ' .
