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
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
" 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.

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
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
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-
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.

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
I leave the prostrate form of what was once a man and rush after
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
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
'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
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
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.
.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,"
'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.

Eh: Silner Spur.
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
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 :
" 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
" 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-
" 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
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
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
The wound was mortal, but ere he died, John Turnbull saw him-
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.

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.
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

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
"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
" 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
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
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.
But the traveler only screamed louder than before
'L Ra, Ra, Ra,
Ra, Ra., Ra,
Ra, Ra, Ra,
And still the king marveled and rose to stir the fire.

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-
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.
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
Now that vacation is near the Freshmen are getting sorry, for they
are forced to make room for the class of 1903.

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
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.
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.
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
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
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,"

li Ulflflili no apology for presenting to the public the history
of the Law Class of IQOO, because the people generally are
eager to know something of our class and to have an account
of the year. 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
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
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.

Burial ui an GIG Slams.
Around me, brambles tangle on the graves,
And ivy sprays are creeping on the stones,
Beside one shattered urn a foxglove waves,
While awe-struck thrushes chirp in undertones.
Outside, a field of broomsedge, waste and bare,
And thickets of the red and yellow plum,
And nearer, on the purple thistles there,
Goldiinches in a brilliant cluster come.
Here headstones hanging sideways to the earth
By winds and rains are dappled into gray 3
Brown lichens have erased the dates of birth
And years in which the sleepers passed away.
Ah, many lives have passed since neighbors came,
Bringing a sleeper to this home to abide,
But this gray negro, last of all the name,
Has sought again his old-time master's side.
Nearer they come, a wagon for a bierg
The rails are lowered at the roadside fence,
The team pulls through-two mules in well-worn gear-
Welcome, old friend, to your last residence !
What songs are these, so mellow, wild and sweet,
Of Salem and its glories far away,
Where change and death glide not on stealthy feet,
Nor leaves in dim October skics decay.
Whzlt childlike faith, that sings of princely palms,
Of fountains gushing through the lields of green !
What childlike faith, that sings of blissful calms,
And splendors that no sage has ever seen.
Strange, a poor negro in this far-oii' place,
Trusting a Friend, sinks in his coiiin low,
Believes that Friend, forgetting not his face,
Will find him where these weeds and brambles grow.
Rose-breasted grosheak, lighting on yon limb
And singing as no bird hath sung before,
Is it a note of triumph trilled for him,
The dead slave, free and happy evermore '?
Grim sentinel, still facing to the west, ' N
The old slave-master's granite tombstone looms, di, ' A

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.
Flaming across midnight skies,
A meteor shot its brilliant spray 5
Tossed through this life of sighs,
Genius comes to pass away.
As darts sped from bows unseen
To cleave an unseen mark,
Are hurled through existence mea
Lives lived in mundane dark.
Swelling chords in cadence sweet,
Stir the soul to vanish quite,
Existence draws its net complete
To free its prey in Stygian night.
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

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. '
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
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
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
" 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.
" 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
" 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
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-
"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.

ITH the end of the Junior Promenade the commencement fes-
tivities of ninety-eight come to a close, a most fitting climax
to an altogether enjoyable occasion. " 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."

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.
When the fiery balls of' the heavens first span,
And just after God had created man,
L. A. SMITH
While planning the beings that till all creation
One was planned that is found in every nation
The grace of the motion that is given the spheres,
The smile of the sunshine which e'en Time revel-es,
The frolicsome, tickleness of the ethereal breeze,
Low musical tones from the waves of the seas.
Bright sparkling glances from the twinkling stars sent
With a sympathetic softness from the gentle moon blent,
These mixed with just some ordinary dirt,
The result, nowadays, all men call a jiirt.
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
" 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.
" 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-
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
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-

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

QNVHERE do customs become more firmly established than in
colleges. 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.
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
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
are no more. It is only the " Fool's Marchf'
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
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
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."

" 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. E.

P. M. KING, "Primus Donnusf'
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,
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
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."
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
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
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
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-
" 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
'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--"
" O, heavens l" exclaimed Marie, "forgive thy distracted servant.
Lead me to him, Henri. But thou canst notl thou canst not! I go to
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
" 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
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.
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
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.

Could I 'find some meadow enchanted, Could I find some bosom, fair muiden,
Kissed by the lips of the dew, Where honor is lord and is king,
By the breath ofthe sweet flowers haunted, Where love with no bitterness laden,
The years and the seasons all through, With uttermost devotion should cling,
Where the violet soft odor is sowing, If always in fair days or raining
Where the rose to the lily is throwing To noble ends striving and straining
A kiss from her crimson lips glowing, It would beat unstained and unstaining,
I would make it a path, 0 sweet, I would make a cushion, O best,
For the fall of your feet ! By thy brow to be pressed!
Could I find some love dream far sweeter
Than the sigh of the summertide rose
That swoons to a rapture completer,
Each hour that over it goes g
Some dream God's blessing, descending
From heaven, is ever attending,
Where soul into soul is blending,
I would make it, O love, a nest
VVhere your heart might rest.

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.

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
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
Again comes the gasping of the pump and like lightning my mem-
ory goes back fifteen years.

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
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.

The Eupetfs Walk.
As I ramble down the street
In :1 crooked, zig-zag walk,
Something twists objects I meet,
And I canlt understand their talk.
I hear such words as 'fdrunkj'
H Tamper," and something like H sotf'
I know Ifm straight as a monk,
And what means their cry, U half-shot ?"
Everybody runs right into me 3
Surely they 're intoxicated.
What can ail my shaky knee?
O, whiskey, how I hate it!
Now, here comes that crooked pave,
lf I don't move I 'll get a crack.
Confound that awkward knave,
He gave me a blow in my back.
Two lamps in the seltlsame place,
That 's the devil of a funny thing !
And here comes, by Jove ! a double face!
Bass and tenor it can sing.
Science says the globe whirls around-
I never did believe it quite,
But here turns the whole blamed town !
What a gol-darned twisted aight!
Maybe I 'm drunk on beer,
I did drink some paltry drops.
Gee, my head feels very queer !
Perhaps there 's lead on top!
I 'm going in here to sleep,
My head 's in such a whirl,-
Gosh, these steps are mighty steep,-
And at the top stands-my girl ! ! !

N THE spring, a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of
love." They sat on the smooth green grass of the campus under
a tall, scrawny oak tree just back of the Chapel. 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
" 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
" 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
" Guess I 'll go to recitation " was all he said.
Then she got up and looked out of a window at the tall, scrawny,
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.
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."

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,
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
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
