D Newton knelt befor . e our rep- resentative of Saint Patrick, and in sin- cere proof of his faith, kissed the Blar- ney Stone. Mr. Newton was born on the 28th of April, 1870, in Watervliet, Michigan. His early education was obtained in his home schools, a small part of his time was spent at the Ann Arbor High School. Later on he attended the Uni- versity of Michigan, where in 1896 he received the Bachelor of Science de- gree in mechanical engineering. Before attending the university, he spent three years in the machine shops at Rochester e might have practical in order that h knowledge. Then from 1896 to 1898 he was with the National Supply Company Nine at Toledo, Ohio. Then for a few years he was chief draftsman and designer for several of the large Eastern steel firms. And in 1911, he accepted a position as mechanical engineer with the Carnegie Steel Works, here until 1913 he worked. Then he came to this university and since then he has been one of the teachers of mechanical drawing and machine design. A All of the engineers joyously wel- come him into their order, for they all know that he has always been in favor of their celebration, and has assisted in many ways to make that celebration a success. Such a man as this will make a most valued Knight, and we will al- ways remember him who received the degree March 17, 1916. L 2 3655555 ego 459. ' nhup C. J. HUBBARD. Witli Apologies to Kipling.

'1 l-ifx be first ngineer OR quite a number of years, the patronage paid to St. Patrick by the Engineers of Missouri Uni- A l versity fand now at Oklahoma, Arkansas, Rolla School of Mines and Amesj has caused people unacquainted with the legend to wonder not a little at the connection. We will here at- tempt to explain how it has been proven that St. Patrick was the only first and original Engineer. , The bearer of the illustrious name of St. Patrick was born of Irish parents on the sea coast of Britain in 389 A. D. History shows that he manifested great engineering ability by mastering alge- bra and trigonometry before he learned his letters. At the age of I5 he proved the earth to be round before an august and learned body of scientists from Dublin. A year later he realized the need of a bridge between analytic ge- ometry and mechanics. Thus the inven- tion of the calculus which has been handed down for us to "'cuss." The Irish now awoke to the fact that this engineering genius was being wasted in Britain. So a vessel was se- cretly sent to the coast of Britain, and one dark and stormy night Patrick was kidnapped and brought to Dublin. Here he was appointed a committee of one to determine the cause of Ireland's re- tardation in the progress of civilization. After four months of diligent and ceaseless investigation Patrick informed the scientists that he was going to im- prove the barbarous condition of Ire- land. Eleven His First service was the construction of a masonry aqueduct on the outskirts of Dublin, thus furnishing, the city with pure water from the springs of that vicinity. He also built three sky- scrapers, an elevated electric railroad, and a cantilever bridge. Not neglect- ing the mechanical and electrical needs of his country, he constructed a dam and erected a power plant on the Shan- non river and transmitted the light and power all over Ireland. Hfis network of railroads established easy access to even the remotest peat bog, upon which Ireland depended for her supply of fuel. , This caused the awe and devotion of the good Irish people and they tried to repay Patrick by giving him the title of Saint. They really wanted to make him king, but he refused, as Withfihis high ideals of democracy, he was op- posed to the rule of ,one man. We thus see why these ideals 'of democracy have afterward been fostered by the follow- ers of the engineering profession. Now these services to Ireland began to worry the lawyers not a little, as a result they feared for their power which they held over the people. So he was accused of witchcraft, arrested and brought before one of their judges. Now St. Patrick was equal to the occa- sion, so he promptly invented the mon- key wrench and screwed all the lawyers to the bench. Later he was elected mayor of the city of Dublin. Four years later St. Patrick started on his famous topo- I - -:a'5Q'-DK Z- .,:,j":3 V 7 or - etseiyt-1355 graphic survey of Ireland. It is said to have taken ten years to complete. An incident is said to have happened while he was in County Cork, en- gaged in precise leveling that will be told to even the end of the world. He was taking "shots" between hills that were four miles apart, and on one sight- ing, he seemed to see the hill move up and then down, to the right and then to the T left in a most unaccountable manner. Upon removing the lens, a young. unsophisticated, green snake crawled out of the instrument, destroy- ing the cross hairs. St. Patrick then an elaborate topograp1'1iC map of Ire' land. His computations became very laborious and tedious, so he invented the slide rule, commonly called the "slip-stick." The original map can be seen in the University of Dublin, where it is paraded and exhibited by the learned men of that institution. St. Patrick was the founder of the Royal Society of Engineers of Ireland. He lived to a ripe old age and died March 17th, 461 A. D. It is said that the earth trembled and the skies dark- ened at his death. He sleeps in the shadows of Blarney Castle, where the lost his for seven days and drove all of the snakes out of Ireland into the sea. Upon completion of his survey, St. Patrick returned to Dublin and laid out temper, and knocked off work shamroclzs grow, but once a year, on the 17th of March he appears on earth again to reward his faithful followers who cheerfully and willingly cut all classes. The Giant iiests All day the Giant, works. l-lis arms of steel Lift the huge weight or turn the ponderous wheel Nor lesser tasks does he disdain or shirk- Allis grist to him that feeds his greed for work. But when the evening creeps across the land The Giant rests, and stretching forth his hand Gropes for his pipe, then bends his tired frame And stoops to light it in the sunset flame. Soon, thick and fast, as he begins to blow, The ruddy sparks through the soft twilight glow. They fill the city streets with mimic noon And flash and sparkle by the still lagoon, Through the dim parks they blaze a golden trail, Float up the hills or cluster in the vale. l-lither and yon, the lovely, airythings ' Go glimmering past us'no their shining wings, While overhead the Lady Moon looks down And deems them jewels lost from out of her crown. PAULINE FRANCES CAMP. Twelve 3 ustin when A Story of an Engineer, a Man of Red Blood. He had come to Alaska shortly gghgfgg after the gold rush. He realized the folly of the mad desire for the muck called goldg for he had heard from stray bits of conversation the names of many who had disappeared into the Great Unknown in their fren- zied rush to the gold fields. Then be- sides his purpose-well he had not come to gain wealth. He had very good rea- sons for being here, and none knew what they were, nor did they care to ask. Generally this type of questions would not be answered and sometimes the one that was questioned might be- come offended, and that meant that some one might go on a very long journey from which there' was no return. So the people accepted him as he was and in their crude andiuncouth ways gave him a welcome. Other than that they thought very little about him and both- ered him less. - ' A railroad had been thought of and some stir was aroused at the Post. He heard that the men who were backing the proposition were in need of a civil engineer, and had not been able to get any that would stay with them. Every- one that came soon became the Vic-- USTICE GIVEN was an engineer. 25 tim of the gold fever and left to join the frenzied? rush to the gold fields, thinking that he might be the lucky one. He inquired where he could find the officials and he was directed to a rough frame shack at the far end of the street. A few questions were asked concerning Thte A his past. These he refused to answer. This caused some doubt on the part of the officials for they had not been in this part of the world very long, and had not learned to steer clear of such discussions. But when they saw an an- gry flush spread over his face, they quickly changed the subject to one of technicalities. They discovered that his knowledge of what they wanted was unlimited. What he did not know about railroad construction, supervision and management was very little. So realiz- ing their nnd, they dropped all further reference to his personal history, and proceeded to show him their plans and explain just what they wanted. For several months he worked long hours, planning the work and driving the crude, ignorant laborers to under- stand that they must do their work rightg for the most of them thought that anyway so that it was done was good enough. He seemed to be every place. Not a level or gradeg nor a .tie or rail was laid that he was not there totsupervise it. He thrived on it while the officials set back and smiled and congratulated themselves on their brains for picking such a good man. A little over a year passed, the little road was completed. Trains had been scheduled to run. One day he came to their office and told them he was going to leave in a few days. They were as- tounded, they hardly knew what to say for a minute, for nearly a month they had planned to make him one of them- selves and give him a position that h might have the best that was, as the C Y had realized the capability, of the man u 'm, m Y h to command others, and that he had a ll of the details of the system at his finge tips. All of this they explained to hi they tried their best to make him se that they needed him and needed hi bad, they told him the salary they ha planned to give him. But he sadl shook his head, and told them that suc a thi Cf ' ' ' ng was impossible, they grew des- perate and offered him double their firs offer, and then finally four times. But he only refused and told them that his assistant, George Lewis, could handle the situation as well as he, and having delivered his final answer, he'turned and slowly walked from the office. Out- ' ewis and whispered some- I' e d 'C side he met L thing to him. That afternoon he dis- appeared from the communi one knew, no one tried to 1'ind out. As the disappearance of men was a common e people knew the ty, where no occurrence, for th law's arm was long and it's gripping iin- gers were always scratching and har- ' ey supposed that rowing the earth. Th this was the case with him and no one bothered to find out different, only his friend L ' ewis knew where he went to. Lewis had been very reluctant to see his friend go, for they had been to- gether ever since the road was a thing on paper. During their evenin ho g urs they had discussed and planned the next d 9 u ay s work. And many a pipe they had 11 way back to the Barrens with supplies for another period of loneliness on his sledge. No one recognized him but his friend Lewis, for a heavy red beard completely covered his face, and -his long thick hair completed the natural disguise. During his long exile he had set dead- falls and fox-baits along theledge of that long, slim finger of the Great Bar- ren which reaches out of the east into the country of the Great Bear, far to the west. The door of his sapling-built hut opened to the dark and chilling gray of the Arctic Circle, through. its one lonely window he could watch the sputter and play of the Northern Lights appier days, and listen to and dream of h the curious hissing purr of the Aurora which had grown to be a monotone in his ears. For six years, season after season, he came back with his load of furs, and the clerk at the trading post had written items something like the following in h t e cornpanyls books: March 17, Given came in toda Y with his furs. He left this after- noon with us usual supplies. Once before the clerk, when he had become ' curious, had added to the rec- ord: Strange why Given does not stay here overnight, and does not asso- ciate with any of us: Curious that he neverdrinks. ' ' Then what seemed the rnost strange Smqked together- of all was the fact that Justice Given A year had Passed' when he again had never asked for any mail durin all came to the Post, this time in the gray of these years, and no letter. had iver of the afternoon he drove in with his Come for him, dogs and his fursg for now he was a Th trapper.

They knew him for miles up and down that white finger of desolation, they knew the danger of his baits and his traps, they snarled and barked their hatred and defiance at the glow, of his lights on dark nights, they watched for him, sniffed for signs of him, and then blindly walked into his clever death traps. Oftentimes the howl of the gray wolf came rolling over the' icy ground and sent a shudder through his body. I-Ee knew what thati howl meant-hun- ger. . The foxes, the wolves, and justice Given! That was what this dead World was made up of-themg and him. He was killing-but they were winning. 'Slowly but surely they were breaking him down-they and the terrible icy loneliness. The loneliness he might have stood for many years. But they- were driving him mad. More and more he had come to dread their howling at night. That wasthe deadly com-bina- and the howling. In the laughed at himself for be- cowardg but at nights the moistened his brow, and tion-night daytime he ing such a cold sweat sometimes he screamed at the awfulness of it all. What kind of manner of man he had been, and of the strangeness of the life that he endured in the maddening lone- liness of that mystery cabin in the edge of the Barren, only one other man knew, and that was George Lewis, his former assistant, the only friend he had ever made during the time he had been in this wilderness. But two thousand miles south, George Lewis sat a small table in a brilliantly lighted and fashionable cafe. It was Fifteen 9 early in the summer, and Lewis had been down from the north not more than a month. The deep tan was on his face, and the tiny wind and snow lines crinkled at the corners of his eyes. He exuded the life of the big outdoors, as he sat opposite the pallid cheeked and weak-chested Bhrome, who would have given his millions to possess the red blood in the other's veins. Lewis had m-ade his "strike,, while he was with the company. That day he had sold out to Bhrome for a hundred thousand, and he was filled with the flush of joy and triumph. Bhrome's eyes shone witha new sort of enthusiasm as he listened to this man's story of grim and fighting deter- mination that had led to the discovery of the gold mine away up in the moun- tains of the frozen north. He looked upon the other's strength, his bronzed face and the glory of achievement in his eyes, and a great and yearning hope- lessness burned like a dull fire in his breast. He envied him. He was no old- er than the other that sat opposite him on the other side of the table-yet a vast gulf lay between them. I-lie had his millions, the other with a flood of red blood coming and going in his body and his wonderful fortune of a hundred thousand. Bhrome leaned over the table and laughed. It was the laugh of a man who had grown tired of, life, in spite of his fortune. Only a few days before a famous specialist had warned him that the threads of his life were giving away -breaking one by one. He told this to his companion. He confessed to him with the strange glow in his eyes-a glow that was like a fire making a last ' Y M?-f :QW 6 7 V 1-ig!"

'Tm ready to quit now, Lewis, I'm ready to quit-but my God, it's too late now." Which got Lewis to thinking and then he began to tell the story, as much of it as he knew, of Justice Given, his friend of the Great Silent. Lewis' voice was tuned with the winds and the forests. It rose above the low and monotonous hum about them. People at the two or three ad- joining tables might have heard his story, if they had listened. Within the immaculateness of his evening dress, Bhrome shivered, fearing that Lewis' voice might attract undue attention to them. But other people were absorbed in themselves. Lewis went on with his story, and at last, so clearly that it eas- ily 'reached the other tables, he spoke the name of justice Given. Then came the interruption, and with that interruption a strange and sudden upheaval in the life of George Lewis that was to mean more to him than the discovery of his gold mine. His eyes swept over Bhrome's shoulder, and there he saw a woman. She was stand- ing. A low, stifled cry had broken from her at the instant of his first glimpse of her, and as he looked, Lewis saw her lips form gaspingly the name he had spoken-justice Given! She was so near that Bhrome could have turned and touched her. Her eyes were like luminous fires as she stared at Lewis. Her face was strangely white. He could see her quiver, and catch her breath. And she was looking at him. For that one moment she had forgotten the presence of the others. Then a hand touched her arm. It was the hand of her elderly escort, in whose face were anxiety and wonder. The woman started and took her eyes from Lewis. With her escort she seated her- self at a table a few paces away, and for a few moments George could See she was fighting for composure, and that it cost her a struggle to keep her eyes from turning in his direction whileshe talked in a low voice with her compan- ion. . George's heart was pounding like a trip hammer. He knew that'she was and he knew when he had He forgot her. She was talking about him now, that she had cried out spoken Given's name. Bhrome as he looked at exquisite, even with that gray pallor that had come so suddenly to her cheeks. She was not young, as the age of youth is measured. Perhaps she was thirty or thirty-Eve. If some one had asked Lewis to describe her, he would have said that she was glorious. Yet her en- trance had caused no stir. Few had looked at her until she had uttered that cry. There were scores of women under the lights possessed of more spectacular beauty. Bhrome had partly turned in his seat, and now, with careful breeding, he faced his companion again. "Do you know her?" Lewis asked. Bhrome shook his head. "No.,' Then he added: "Did you see what made her cry out like that?', "I believe so," said Lewis, and he turned purposely so that the four peo- ple at the next table might see him and hear him. "I think that she sprained Tixt " or her ankle. It's on account--oh, it's an occasional penance the women make for wearing these high-heeled shoes, you know." He looked at her again. Her form was bent toward the white-haired man who was with her. The man was star- ing straight over at George, a strange, searching look in his face as he listened to what she was saying. He seemed to question Lewis through the short dis- tance that separated them. And then the woman turned her head slowly, and once more Lewis met her eyes square- ly-deep, dark, glowing eyes that thrilled him to the quick of his soul. He did not try to understand what he saw in them. Before he turned his glance to Bhrome he saw that the color had swept back into her face, her lips were parted, he knew that she was struggling to suppress a tremendous emotion. Bhrome was looking at him curiously -and George went on with his story of Given. He told it in a lower voice. Not until he had finished did he look again in the direction of the other table. The woman had changed her position slight- ly, so that he could not see her face. The uptilt of her hat revealed to him the warm, soft glow of shining coils of brown hair. He was sure that her es- cort was keeping watch of his move- ments. Suddenly Bhrome saw a man that he had been wishing to see for some time, so he excused himself to Lewis and left the table. A few seconds later the white-haired man was on his feet. I-Ile came over to Lewis' table, andiseated himself casu- ally in Bhrome's vacant chair, as though he were a very personal friend of Seventeen . 'f Georgeis that had come to have a friend- ly chat for a few minutes. "I beg your pardon for the imposition which I am laying upon youf' he said in a very quiet voice. "I am Captain Courtley. The lady with me is my daughter. And you, I believe, are a gentleman. If I were not sure of that, I should not have taken the advantage of addressing you. You heard my daugh- ter cry out a few moments ago? You observed that she was-disturbed?" Lewis nodded. "I could not help it. I was facing her. And since then I have thought that I'was the cause of her being dis- turbed. I am George Lewis. I have just arrived from the gold fields. So, you see, if it is a case of mistaken identity-" "No-no-it is not that," interrupted the older man. "As we were passing your table-my daughter-heard you speak a name. Perhaps she was mis- taken. It was Justice Given." "Yes, I know him. He is a friend of mine." ' ' E Bhrome was returning. The other saw that over George's shoulder and his voice trembled with excitement as he said quickly: ' "Your friend is coming back. No one must know that my daughter is inter- ested in this man-Given. She trusts you. She sent me to you. It is impor- tant that she should see you tonight and talk with you alone. I will wait for you outside. I will have a taxicab ready to take you to my apartments. Will you come?" "I will come," he said. With a feeling that thisnight had set stirring a brew of strange. and unfore- --1f aN ,Y J--iss ,- .Xf,,,- seen events for him, George sat in a softly lighted and richly furnished room and waited. The Captain had been gone a full half hour. He had left a box half filled with cigars on a table at George's elbow, urging that he should smoke. They were a fine quality of cigars and on the box was the name of the dealer from which they had been purchased. I "My daughter will come presently," Captain Courtley had said. A curious thrill shot through George as he heard her footsteps and the soft swish of her skirts. Involuntarily he arose to his feet as she entered the room. For fully ten seconds they stood facing each other without speaking. She was dressed in a iilmy gray stuff. There was lace at her throat. She had shifted the thick, bright coils of her hair to the crown of her head, a splendid glory of hair, he thought. Her cheeks were flushed, and with her handsragainst her breast, she seemed crushing back the strange excitement that glowed in her eyes. Once he had seen a fawn's eyes that looked like hers. In them was sus- pense, fear-a yearning that was almost pain. Suddenly she same to him, her hands outstretched. Involuntarily, too, he took them. They were warm and Soft. They thrilled him-and they clung to him. - "I am Mary Courtley,', she said. "My father has explained to you? You know -a man-who calls ,himself-Justice Given?" Her fingers clung more tightly to his, and 'the sweetness of her hair, her breath, her eyes were very close as she waited. "Yes, I know a man that calls him- self by that name." W "Tell me what he is like? Is he tall like you ?" "No, he is of medium height." "Is he young?" "No, he is older than I." "And his eyes-are they dark?" He felt rather than heard the throb- bing of her heart as she waited for him to reply. There was a reason why he should never forget Givenis eyes. "Sometimes I thought that they were blue, and sometimes that they were gray," he said, and at that she dropped his hands with a strange little cry, and stepped back from him, a joy which she madedno effort to' keep frornhim flaming in her face. It was a look that sent a sudden hope- lessness through him-a stinging pang of jealousy. This night had set wild and tumultous emotions aflarne in his breast. He had come to her like one in a dream. In an hour he had placed her above all other women in the World, and in that hour the little gods of fate had brought him to his knees in the worship of a woman. The fact did not seem un- real to him. Here was a wom,an, and he loved her. And his heart sank like a heavily weighted thing when he saw the transformation of joy that Came into her face when he mentioned the name of his lonely, mad friend away up there in the North. "And this man?" he said, straining to make his voice even. "VVhat is he to you?" 'His question cut her like a knife. The wild color ebbed swiftly out of hgr cheeks.

It was if he had done something to frighten her. "We-my father and I-are interested in himf' she said., Her words cost her a visible effort. He noticed a quick throbbing in her throat, just above the filmy lace. "Mr, Lewis, won't you par- don this-this betrayal of excitement in myself? It must be unaccountable to you. Perhaps a little later you will understand. We are imposing on you by not conflding in you what this inter- est is, and I beg of you to forgive me. But there is a reason." - Her hands rested lightly on his shoul- ders. Her eyes implored him. "I will not ask for confidences which you are not free to give," he said very gently. He was rewarded by a soft glow of thankfulness. 1 About then her father entered the roomg then for a period of nearly three hours he vividly told them how and where he had met Given. What friends they had grown to be, of the lonely life there in the wilderness with' only the yapping and the howling of the foxes and the wolves. Of the awful silence that you could almost hear. Of the bit- ter cold. After-.he had left he still felt the thrill of the warm, parting pressure of her hand, he saw the gratitude in her eyes, he heard her voice, low and tremu- lous, asking him to come again tomor- row evening. His brain was in a strange whirl of excitement, and he laughed- laughed with a gladness which he had not felt before in all of the days of his life. He had told a' great many things that night, but he'wondered why that haunt- ing fear had come into her eyes when Nineteen he happened to mention the Mounted Police. But he had asked them no ques- tions, he had not tried to pry into the secret which they so evidentlydesired to keep from him. Now, alone in the cool night, he asked himself a hundred questions, and yet with 'a feeling that he understood a great deal of what they had kept from'him. Something had whispered to him then-and whispered to him now-that Justice Given was not the man's right name, and that to her and her father he was a brother and son. This thought, as long as he could think it without a doubt, filled his cup of hope to the overflowing. . But the doubt per- sisted. It wasllike a spark that refused to go out. Who was justice Given? What was he, the' engineer, now' the half'-wild trapper, to Mary Courtley? Yes-he could be but that one thing-a brother-a black sheep-a wanderer. A son who had disappeared-and now was found. But ifhe was that, only that, why would they not tell him? The doubt sputtered up again. Hle did not go to bed, he was anxious for theday and the evening that was to follow. A woman had unsettled hisworld. His gold mine now" became an unimportant reality. Everything faded into the back- ground and only the woman remained. He was like a boy living in the anticipa- tion of a great promise-restless and even feverishly anxious all day. He made all sorts of 'inquiries about Cap- tain Courtley. None seemed to know anything of him or where he had come from. That night, when he saw Mary Court- ley again, he wanted-to reach out his arms to her. He wanted to make her understand how completely his wonder- . tg-lofxs - X .Tp -it .XY j ful love possessed him, and how utterly lost he was without her. 'She was dressed in simple white-again with that Hlmy lace at her throat. Her hair WaS don in those lustrous coils, so bright and soft that he would have given a tenth of his gold mine to touch them with his hands. And she was glad to see him. Her eagerness shone in her eyes, in the warm Hush of her cheeks, in 'the joyous tremble of her voice. That night, too, passed like a dream in paradise for him. For a long time they sat alone, she had brought him the cigars and urged him to smoke. They talked about the North, of its frozen wastes, its wild life, and 'the tragedies of the gold-mad men. He told her of his own adventures, how long he had sought for gold himself. "I expect to go back some time in August," he said. , ' I She leaned toward him, last night's strange excitement glowing for the first time in her eyes. I "You are going back? You Will see him?" In her eagerness she laid a hand on his arm. "I am going back. It would be possi- ble to see Given." The touch of her hand did not lighten the Weight that was tugging again at his heart. "It is a long journey, and-in he was looking at her closely as he spoke, "jus- -tice Given may not be there when I re- turn. It is possible that he may have gone into another part of the Wilder- ness." I-Ife saw her quiver as she drew back, "He has been there all these years," she said, as if she were speaking to her- self. "He wouldnot move now." His own voice was low, scarcely above a whisper, and she looked at him quick- ly and strangely, a Hush in her cheeks. It was late when he bade her good- night. Again he felt the warm thrill of her hand as it lay in his. The next aft- ernoon he was to take her out driving. The days and weeks that followed these first meetings with her were weighted with many things for George. Neither she nor her father enlightened him concerning their interest in the man that they were so interested in. Several times he believed that she 'Was on the point of confiding in him, but each time there came that strange fear in her eyes, and she caught herself. Lewis did not urge. He asked no questions that might be embarrasing. He knew, after the third Week had passed, that she could no longer be un- conscious of his love, even though the mystery of the man in the North re- strained him from making a declaration of it. There was not a day in the week that they did not see each other. As their acquaintance became closer, and as she saw in him more and more of that something which he had not spoken, a change developed in her. At first it puzzled and then alarmed him. At times she almost seemed frightened. One evening, when his love was trem- bling on his lips, she turned suddenly white. It was the middle of July before the words came from him at last. In two or three weeks he was starting for the North. It was evening, and they were alone in the big room, with the cool breeze from the lake drifting in on them. He made no effort to touch her as he told her of his love, butwhen he was done, she know that a strong man Twenty SE lick. Wh imd- ill of : aff. Vmg. Jwed WC!!

' had laid his heart and his soul at her feet. He had never seen her whiter. Her hands were clasped tightly in her lap. There was a silence in which he did not breathe. Her answer came so slow and low that he leaned forward to hear. "I am sorry," she said. "It's my fault -that you love me. I knew. And yet I let you come again and again. I have done wrong. It is not fair now for me to tell you to go-without a chance. You would want me if I did not love you? You would marry me if I did not love you ?" Hlis heart pounded. He forgot every- thing but that he loved this woman with a love beyond his power to reason. "I don't think I could live without you nowf' he cried in a low voice. "And I swear to make you love me. It must come. It is inconceivable that I cannot make you love me-loving you as I do." She looked at him clearly now. She seemed suddenly to become tense -and vibrant with 'a new and wonderful strength. "I must be fair with you," she said. "You are a man whose love most women would be proud to possess. And yet- it is not my power to accept that love, or give myself to you. There is another that you must go to." "And that is--" "Justice Given." - It was she that leaned forward now, her eyes burning, her bosom rising and falling with the quickness of her breath. ' "You must go to him," she said. "You must take a letter to him-from me. And it will be for him-for him-to say T tyO e whether I am to be your wife. You are honorable. You will be fair with me. You will take the letter to him. And I will be fair to youi I will be your wife. I will try hard to care for you- if he-says--" E Her voice broke. She covered her face, and for a moment, too stunned to speak, George looked at her while her slender form trembled with sobs. She had bowed her head, and for the first time he reached out and laid his hand upon 'the soft glory of her hair. Its touch set aflame every fiber in him. Hope swept through him, crushing 'his fears like a juggernaut. It would be a sim- ple task to go to Given! He was tempted to take her in his arms. A moment more and he would have caught her' to him, but "the weight-of his hand on her head aroused her, and she raised her face, and drew back her head. Hfis arms were reaching out. She saw what was in his eyes. "Not now," she said. "Not until you have gone to him. Nothing in the world will be too great a reward for you if you are fair to me, for you are taking a chance. In the end you may receive nothing. For if he says that I cannot be your wife-I cannot. He alone must decide. On those conditions will you go?" "Yes, I will go," 'said George. ' It was early in August when he reached the Post. From there he took the trail. Day after day he continued steadily northward. He carried the let- ter to Given in his breast pocket, secure- ly tied in a little water-proof bag. It was a thick letter, and time and again he held it in his hand, and wondered what it was that she had so much to say 4 shmoe ee A elif X 1916 to that lonely man in the Great Silent. One night, as he sat alone by his HFC in the chill of September darkness, he took the letter from its sack, and saw that the contents of the bulging en- velope had sprung one end of the flap loose. He had set a pail of water on the fire, and a cloud of steam was rising from it. Those two things-the flap and the steam-sent a thrill through him. What was in the letter? What had she written to that man? In a few seconds the steam would free the rest of the flap. He could read the letter and no one would ever know the difference. Then like a shock came the thought that the few letters she had written to him were always sealed with a red sealing wax, and that this letter was not sealed. She had trusted him. Her faith was implicit. And this was her proof of it. Under his breath he laughedfand his heart grew warm with new happiness and hope. "I have faith in you," were her parting words, and now these words came back to him, "I have faith in you." So he replaced the letter in its sack. That night had seen the beginning of the struggle with himself. The autumn and the winter came early in this coun- try. It was to be a winter of terrible cold and snow, of famine, and of pesti- lence. The Hrst oppressive gloom of it added to the fear and suspense that be- gan to grow in him. For days there was no sign of the sun. The clouds hung low. Bitter winds came out of the North, and nights these winds wailed desolately through the tops of the trees under which he slept. And day after day and night after night the tempta- tion came upon him more strongly to open that letter. He was convinced that the letter- and the letter alone-held his fate, and that he was actingblindly. He wanted Mary. He wanted her above everything else in the world. Then why Should he not fight for her-in his own way? And to do that he must open the letter and read its contents. If there was nothing in it that would stand between them, he would have done no wrong, for he would still take it to Justice Given. So he argued. But if the letter ruined his chances of possessing her, his knowl- edge of what it contained would give him an opportunity to win her in an- other way. He could even answer it himself and take back to her false Word from Given, for these awful. years in the North would have changed his hand- writing. His treachery, if it could be called that, would never be discovered. And it would give to him the woman that he loved. This was the temptation. The power that resisted it was the spirit of that big, clean, fighting North which makes men out of flesh and bone. Ten years of that life had been drilled into him, and so he hung on. Deep snows fell, and fierce blizzards shot like gun blasts from out of the Arctic. Snow and wind were not what brought the deeper gloom to the coun- try. Smallpox-"red death"-was gal- loping through the wilderness, and a hundred messengers of the forests were riding swiftly behind their dogs to spread the warning. Hfe traveled very slowly. For three days and nights the air was filled with the "Arctic Dustv snow that was as hard as Flint and stung like shot and it was Twontx'-TWG so cold that he paused frequently and built small fires, over which he filled his lungs with hot air and smoke. He knew what it meant to have the lungs "touched" It was the morning of the sixth day when he reached the thick fringe of spruce that sheltered Given's cabin. He was half blinded. The snow-filled bliz- zards had cut his face until it was swol- len and purple. Twenty paces from the cabin he stopped, and stared, and rubbed his eyes again-as though that he were not quite sure that his eyes were not playing him a trick. A cry broke from his lips then. Over the door there was nailed auslender sap- ling, and at the end of that sapling there floated a tattered, wind-beaten rag. It was the signal. It was the one common voice to all of the wilderness-a warn- ing to man, woman and child, white or red, that came down through the cen- turies. justice Given was down with the small-pox! For a few moments the discovery stunned him. Then he was filled with a chill, creeping horror. Given was sick with the scourge. Perhaps he was dy- ing. It might be-that he was dead. In spite of the terror of the thing ahead of him, he thought of Mary. If Given was deadi! 'Above the low moaning of the Wind in the tops of the trees he cursed him- self. He had thought a crime, and he clenched his mittened hands as he stared at the one window of the cabin. His eyes shifted upward. In the air was a hlmy, floating gray. It was smoke coming from the chimney. Given was not dead. Something kept him from shouting Given's name,'that he might Twen ty-Three ' 5l Q g S' r iq 2 WEE . come to the door. He went to the win- dow and looked in. For a few moments he could see nothing. And, then, dimly, he made out the cot against the wall. On that cot sat the man that was his friend and the man that held his happi- ness in his Words. With a quick breath George turned to the door, opened it, and walked in. Justice Given staggered to his feet as the door opened. His eyes were wild and filled with fever. "You-Lewis!" he cried huskily. "My God, didn't you see the flag?" "Yes" George's half-frozen features were smiling, and now he was holding out a hand from which he had drawn his mit- ten. "Lucky I happened along just now, old man. You've got it, eh?" Q Given shrank back from the offered hand. "There's time," he cried, point- ing to the door. "Don't breathe this air. Get out. I'm not bad yet-but it's the small-poxf' "I know it," said George, beginning to throw off hood and coat. "I'm not afraid of it. I had a touch of it three years ago, so I guess that I am immune. Besides, I have come two thousand miles to see you-Justice Given-two thousand miles to see you, and bring a letter from Mary Courtleyf, For a few seconds Given stood tense and motionless. Then he swayed for- ward. "A letter for me-from Mary?" he gasped, and held out his hands. An hour later they sat facing each other. The beginning of the disease be- trayed itself in the red Hush of Given's face, and the fever in his eyes. But he was calm. For many minutes he had spoken in a quiet voice, and LeWiS sat with scarcely a breath and a heart that at times had risen in his throat to choke him. In his hand Justice Given held the pages of the letter he had read. Now he went on: "So I'm going to tell it all to you, Lewis-because I know that you are a man. Mary has left nothing out. She has told me of your love, and of the reward that she has promised you-if I send back the word. She says frankly that she does not love you, but that she honors you above all men-except her father and one other-and that other- that other is myself. Years ago the woman that you love-was my wife. Her name was not Givenf' he went on, and a smile fought grimly on his lips. "That's one thing that I will not tell you, my name. The story itself will be enough. p "Perhaps there were two other people in the world that were happier than we two. I doubt it. I I got into a deal. I made an enemy, a deadly enemy. He was a blackmailer and a thief and the head of a political ring that lived on graft. Through my efforts he Was ex- posed. And then he laid for me-and he got me. I must give him credit for doing it so cleverly. He set a trap for me and a woman helped him. The trap sprung and got me. 'Even my wife would not believe me and the papers could End no excuse for me. I have never blamed her for getting a divorce, On the day the divorce was given her, my brain went bad. The World turned red and then black and red again. I went to his oiiice. I gave him a change to confess and redeem himself. He laughed at me, exulted at my fall. And so-I g ml? A killed him. And then in his office, With his dead body at my feet, I wrote a ,note to Mary. I told her what I had done and told her again of my innocence. I wrote her some day that she might hear from me under the name that I now bear, as the law would always be Watching for me. She has kept my secret, while the law has hunted for me. And thisi-" He held the letter out to Lewis. "Take it-go outside and read it. I want to think, and then come back in a half hour." Back of the cabin George read the let- teri and at timeshis soul seemed as if it were being smothered and at others it seemed to quiver with 'a strange joy. For nearly seven years she had known of the innocence of her husband. The woman-the dead man's tool-con- fessed. And during that time Mary had traveled over the world seeking him- the man who bore the name-Justice Given. Each night she had prayed God that the next day she might End him, and now her prayer had been answered, she begged that she might come to him, and share with him for all time a life away from the world they knew. The woman breathed like life in the pages that he read, yet with that won- derful message to Justice Given she pil- loried herself for those red and insane hours in which she had lost faith in him. She had no excuse for herself, ex- cept her great love, she crucified her- self as she held out her arms to him across that two thousand miles of deso- lation. She had written of the great PFICC She was offering for this one Chance of life and happiness. She told him of his friend's love, and the reward she had offered him should Justice 'l tl ity ' f ' A-:-xfwf Given find that in his heart love had died for her. Twice he read that mes- sage and he envied the man. The thirty minutes were gone when he re-entered the cabin. Given was waiting for him. "Have you read it?" Lewis nodded. In those moments he did not trust himself to speak. Given understood. The Hush was deeper in his face, his eyesburned brighter with the feverg but of the two he was the calmerg and his voice was steady. "I haven't much time, Lewis," he said, and he smiled faintly as he folded the pages of the letter. "My head is crack- ing. B,ut I have thought it all out, and you have got to go back to her-and tell her that I am dead. It's the best thing. I love her, Lewis. God knows that it's been only my dreams of her that have kept me alive all these years. She wants me to come to her, but that's impossible. I'm an outlaw. The law won't excuse me for killing that thing. We'd have to hide-hide all of our lives. And some day they might get me. There's just one thing to do and that is go back and tell her that I am deadg and try to make her happy, if you can." For the first time George forgot his lbve for the woman. And he cried out, "She wants to come to you," and he leaned towards Given, white-faced and clenching his hands. "She wants to comef' he repeated, "and the law won't find you. It's been seven ,years-and God knows that I will never say a word. It won't find you. And if it should, you can iight it out together, you and Mary." Given held out his hands, saying huskily, "Now I know that I need have no fear in sending you back. You're a T enty-Five man, and you've got to go. She can't come to me. It would'kill her this life. Think of the winter here-madness- the yapping of, the foxes--" Given swayed and crumpled up on his cot. For many days he and Given fought the red death in the little cabin. It was a iight that he could never forget. One afternoon, to strengthen himself for the terrible night that was coming, he walked several milestback into the forest on his snowshoes. It was late afternoon when he returned with a haunch of caribou meat on his shoulder. Three hundred yards from the cabin something stopped him like a shot. He listened. From, ahead of him came the whining of dogs, the crack of a whip, a shout which he could not understand. He dropped his burden and sped on. At the south edge of the level he stopped again. Straight ahead of him was the cabin. A 'hundred yards to the right of him was a dog team and a driver. Be- tween the team and the cabin a hooded and coated figure was running in the di- rection of the danger signal. With a cry of warning he darted in pursuit. He overtook the figure at the cabin door. It turned-and he stared into the white, terror-stricken face of Mary Courtley. E "Good God!" he cried and that was all. ' She gripped him with both hands. H?e had never heard her voice as it was now. She answered the amazement and horror in his face. "I sent you a letter," she cried, pant- ingly, "and it didn't overtake you. ' As soon as 'you were gone, I knew that I must come-that' I must follow you- that I must speak the words that I had Slrggfock it K A X av written. I tried to catch you, but you traveled faster than I could. Will you forgive me? You will forgive me." She tried to go into the little cabin but he detained her. ' "It is small-pox," he said and his voice was dead. "I know-the man over there-the man that brought me-told me what that little red flag means. And I am glad -so glad that I came when I did-in time to go to him-as he is. And you- you-must forgive!" She jerked away from him. The door opened and it closed behind her. A mo- ment later he heard a strange cryg the cry of a woman and the cry of a mang then he turned and walked slowly back into the forest. , It was growing dark when he started to go back, for he knew that he must go backg there was nothing else to do. As he had expected, the man that had brought her had fied with' his dog teamg leaving her there to face the red death. As he paused for a moment, the door opened and Mary stood there, looking at him. And then she came quickly out to him. Vainly did he try to keep the despair and heartbreak out of his face. She saw it, and there was a stranger and softer glow in her eyes as she took his hands in hers, and held them tight. "He has been telling me about you," she said, "I didn't know that there was a man in the whole world like you. I know what you have done, and what it has meant to you." Again she repeated softly, "I didn't know that there was a man in the whole world like you." He bowed his head, his shoulders drooped. And then he felt the warm thrill of her lips against his hand, That night was the rnost terrible of all nights in that little cabin in the Great Silent. And it was a night Of wild storm outside. The Wi1'1dS howled out of the north, and the trees moaned and sighed in the screeching blasts, while in that lonely little cabin George and Mary and justice Given fought the great fight. During the intervals of that iight, when the wind went moaning down, they could hear the hunger howl of the wolves and the barking of the foxes, and Lewis thought of all of the years in which they had haunted Given, and wondered if some strange spirit was gathering them in now from out of the storm to see the end. For he knew that the end was near. It carne in a fierce blast of the blizzard that seemed to sway the walls of the cabin. He did not need to tell Mary. She saw, and fell down on her knees beside the cot. And Lewis, unused to prayer, stood back out of the light and deep in his heart thanked God-not that his friend was dead, but that Mary was there, kneeling, with her arms about the one that she had lost. He was not jealous. In his soul was a strange rejoicing, and deep grief. He waited, and at last she rose slowly. She swayed slightly, and reachedout her arms seeking him. "He is gone," she whispered. He opened his arms. She lay in their shelter as the polar wind shrieked above them. He could feel the beating of her heart on his breast. And then she fell to sobbing, with her face close against him, and he rested his lips on her soft hair-and then the night grew suddenly still, and her throbbing died away, 1ike the crying of a child that has found the comfort of its mother's arms, 1 I I -- 13' W T t5S ew. h The Man Who Didn't Succeed They sing of the men who build the mills And girdle the earth with steel, Who fill the hour and wield the power That molds the public weal.

PART I. g Now this- is the tale of the labours performed by a survey gang Away in the back of the wild lanes, where nobody cares a hang! . Where the brown bear prowls in the thicket, and the screech owl splits the night, u . And skunks and other blossoms sweet, yield scents of rare delight. When grey the dawn is breaking, your duties 'are begun, Throughout the hours of daylight you labor with the sung And when the shadows lengthen, and the stars are shining bright, You take a shot at the polar star in the middle of the night. You sleep in a dis-used box car, on a bed of boughs of spruce, But there's nothing to get by kicking, so what in hell's the use? You dine on pork and cabbage, 'on pork and beans you sup, And there's pork next day for a breakfast, dish, to clear the remnants up. You pump a rusty hand-car for seven miles down the track, And the sweat runs into your eyebrows, and you long to ease your back. With picket, chain and transit, you run the traverse through For seven miles, or maybe ten, as much as you can do. You sit on a rotting deadfall, and open a can of pork, And eat a hasty dinner, with fingers for a fork.,' Then on you go with the traverse, as hard as you can push, ' Till the shades of night are falling fast, o'er swamip and track and bush. And then you hurry homeward, to the supper waiting-there, And think of your lousy spruce-bunk, and the sleep that knows no care: But, swinging round a rock-cut, you 'make a meet" with a freight, And "Safety First" is a maxim sound, so you leave the Cal- to its fate Ill! ' W shmoe? ' ' The car is smashed to splinters, which pleases the engineer, While you stand and swear in chorus, but only the night winds hear. So you shoulder the blasted transit, the picket, axe and chain, And start to tramp it homrewards, a dozen miles in the rain. At last, when the stars are shining, and the moon is swinging low, You reach the cars on the siding, foot-sore and full of woe, You kick while you eat your supper, you'grouse when you go to bed, And curse all night at the chap who snores, and wish that you were dead. But somehow, in the morning, you wake as .fresh as paint, e Although last night you thought the life would demoralize a saint: ' And you gather the junk together, and out on the line you go, For another day's hard labour, in rain, or sun, or snow. But to-day is no track traverse, it's Township lines in the bush, . And your axe bites deep of the cedar, and down she comes with a rush. You splash your way through the muskeg, you 'Hounder across the creek And flies and "skeeters" drink -their fill till you feel .too mad to speak. But it's not bad work in the summer, it's rather finein the fall, ' . But in the good old winter it's the greatest job of all, ' With frozen ears and fingers, and nose that you cannot feel, You laugh aloud with your stihfened lips, for your doing the work that's real. And so it was in the Beginning, and so it is to-day, And so it shall be to the end of things, when you are taken away, Until you are made into Angels, with transit, and tape and chain, You will work for the dame-d'old C. P. R., World without End. - ' Amen. ' Thirty-Three ln' PART II. T The Next World T Now this is the fate of surveyors, who love their beerbtoo well, They must do their work in Hades, surveying the bounds of hell, . They must blaze their trail through the darkness, they must run the Line of Regret, ' ' Till the Hubs of Hell are planted well, and the Devil's Corner set. And this is the fate of the Draughtsman, a -red hot compass and pen And a red hot clraughting table, for ever 'and ever. Amen. He must draw the Things as he sees It, with a Flag on every Hub, Till a white hot print of the Bounds of Hell is passed by Beegelbub. And the Picketmen and Chainmen must set a witness stake, Well squared and truly numbered, in the midst of the Burning Lake They must drag the chain forever, and .measure every lot Through bush that burns but never wastes, and swamp that's always hot. And the Cook who cooked their dinner, oh! what shall be his fate? Shall he stand beside the furnace door, and fill a fiery plate? Oh, no, he shall stand in the corner, away from- the furnace heat. He had it hot on the cook car, so now he shall cool his feet. For surveyors and all their outfit are sinners ,beyond recall, They hold no law but the law of might, which gives to the mightiest all. So he who has learned his lesson, who has served his year and a day May sin to the full of his heart's content, and none shall say him "lNlay." But the Devil stands in the Gates of Hell, to see who each may be, When an O. L. S. is sighted, he rubs his hands with glee, He calls aloud to his stokers, "Ha, stoke the furnace- Wejj Here's another surveyor coming along, we must make him ,hot in hellf' ll 1 3 'l 6 C glllllllllfilllllllllllllllhlllllIlllllllllllllllillllIIlllilllillllllllllllillllllllllllllllllllIIIII IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIWIIIIIIIL .- t , 1 ------Q G- 25251 -Mil' iif wfigi W ,,,,,, 0 M056 u .f 5 f V Q 4. f Zluuud Q Q I Q 5 W WWMW I ' g f .5 4 5 ix NX 2 i X -1,41 - x ZW Q " V 4' 'TN AX ' '-fx" 5- I " IL- 519' 1' ' nfl f,,, W 1 f 1 V ' W' X 1 : FQ H N I , .

For ages and ages I have played through the heavens, and deep in the Bowels of the Earth I have wrought Mysteries un- known to man.

I have played 'round the spindling towers man built, leaped o'er the mountains, moved the wild sea, and found My Rest in the bodies of people who knew not My Presence. Now man has found Me-a Willing Servant. I fetch and carry, lighting man's home and the streets, speeding his word on the currents of air to far-distant coun- tries, turning the wheels of thousands of mills, driving his cars in the city and doing .his toil in the country. Ah! Countless are the things I give in Light, in Heat, in Power, yet even the ones who 'know Me best know nothing about Me. And though their hands are. bold, their hearts are timid.

On a recent trip to St. Louis, I went with my friend, Mr. Hunter, to his Ash- ley St. Plant of the St. Louis Electric Light Co. While we walked together through the engine room he pointed out a vacuum pump from which they got something for nothing. We mechanical engineers believe in getting all we can out of our machines, also in saving the product when we get it. I will not write on the board the name of the Trust Company in Syracuse, N. Y., whose president told me he would gladly pay me four per cent on my de- posits which I would make with him. QThe man who greased this blackboard with his hand, or otherwise, is no friend of minej When I was connected with the Penn- sylvania Ry., in the summer of 704, we bought some dining cars for main line service. At one point on the road where the trains traveled at 80 miles per hour, the bridge abutments on each side of the track were so close to the track that they scraped the paint off of the cars as they went by. At the time that I was employed by the Lehigh R. R. as smoke expert, I designed an engine which would only clear the side of the tunnels by one-half inch. One time when running a test on this locomotive, I stood on the front of the engine with a tool in my hand, we were going at the rate of 65 miles per hour -and the wind came along and sucked me off of the cow-catcher. I will now place on the board a heat entropy diagram. This point is 320 F. Down in the library somewhere is abso- lute zero. This line is ADIABATIC. This word means "not diarrhoea." You all know what that means. I have had it. In the home which I built in Ithica, N. Y., I designed and had built the only sanitary, odorless bathroom in the city. It proved very efficient and successful. If you should go into Mrs. Hibbard's kitchen over on Keiser Avenue today, you would find things perfectly system- atized. In the back corner of the upper left- hand drawer in my dresser, I have a list of the things to take along when I go up into the Maine woods to camp. There I will find listed my pajamas, monkey wrench, double acting shears, and many things I might omit if I did not consult the list, which I always do, before I start on a camping trip. Again referring to the diagram I will ask you to note this point up here. It is such a miserable little booger you are liable to overlook it. This line I have drawn an odd shape. This is du-e to the fact that I am talking theory and not sense. Open your Gebhardt's -to page 260. 2 8-gths inches from the bottom under- line H30 pounds."

Good-fellowship passed by with jovial port And left him to his test-tube and retort. With men he wore an air reserved and grave And few to him the hand of friendship gave. l..ove's happy laughter or the song of bird Came floating through his window unheard. In vain the summer called from stream and hill, Above his endless task he bended still. Yet, for that joyless work, ten thousands came, In later time, to bless his very name. 'Through him men walked Who, but for him, had lain In hopeless beds of feebleness and pain And babes grew up to be their parents pride Who, had his work been dropped, had surely diedg And to the wards where fever gasped for breath He stretched his hand and closed the door on death.

The society was organized in Septem- ber, IQI4, and during the years 1914-1915 did much towards putting Columbia on the wireless map. Through the kind- ness of the engineering department the club was allowed to 'use one of the base- ment rooms of the Engineering Build- ing for a club station. An antennae was erected between the towers of that building and of Switzler Hfall, and the equipping of the station began. Though the club is by no means finished fitting up the station, the results so far ob- tained have been very satisfactory. Of course the receiving range is much greater than the sending, as the power used for transmitting is only one-half kilowatt at present. The equipment of the station is as follows: Antennae is composed of four wires of stranded copper wire, 120 feet long, Q0 feet high at one end, and 80 feet high at the other The sending set consists of. one-half K. W. G. E. testing transformer, oscillation transformer, ro- tary spark gap, and condenser. The receiving set comprises 2,ooo ohm head Seventy-Gne phones, galena detector, loose coupler, variable and fixed condensers. Before the club was organized 'there was probably only one station in Colum- bia, while now there are a dozen or more, two of which are operated by the university. One needs only to connect his receiving set on the bed springs and radiator of his room to get all the prac- tice he needs. The Wireless Club holds weekly meetings, papers are read by members, addresses given by interested members of the faculty, and practice in sending and receiving is made possible by means of a buzzer, battery and key. The mem- bership this year is about iifteen, sev- eral of whom hold operator's licenses, issued by the Government. Many of the members also have stations of their own, either here in Columbia or in their re- spective home towns. The oflicers of the Wireless Club are: Robert M. Walker, presidentg Clarence O'Danie1, vice president, Vernon G. Cox, ,secretary-treasurer, and Elliott A. White, faculty advisor. ' The club station will be at the dis- posal of St. Patrick on the 17th and vis- itors are invited to inspect the set. Tell me, what's the wireless, ' That brings me thoughts of you? In operation tireless, Yet always overdue. Is it, I wonder, can it be A matter of telepathy? X f ex V- - M2-' EX 7 Stzanvoclg fi Fuzzy HE last resounding tones of the eight o'clock bell had just passed into oblivion. Weinie drew up his luxurious office chair to his equally luxurious desk, hoisted his feet with much exertion to that piece of fur- niture, and began the business of piec- ing together the "makings" of his after- breakfast cigarette. In this position he remained motionless, except for the arm movement necessary to place in his mouth and withdraw the smoking cigar- ette. The ten minutes he methodically set aside for this pleasure sped swiftly. Taking his roll book and other papers of importance from his desk, he slowly moved out of the offifce, closing the .door behind him, and descended to the Elec- trical Laboratory. He met his class with an amiable smile and proceeded at once to the large generating unit in the corner. After careful and systematic inspection of the working parts of the unit, he threw over the starting arm. The motor quickly responded and with a low, musical hum came quickly up to speed. Weinie stood close by, rubbing his hands togetherand wearing the satisfied expression of a miser who has just gloatingly placed a newly acquired sheckel under the worn mattress. Turning quickly on his heel he faced the panel containing the meters and other apparatus for controlling the unit. He slowly brought his hands to his face and, as one who is possessed of fear, dragged it across his brow. He weakly clutched the voltmeter with 1916 both hands and peered hopelessly. Hue reeled, fell back and all became dark. When he awoke all was serene-bend- ing above him was an individual. All Weinie knew, or even cared to know, was that she was dressed in white and good to look upon. He tried to speak but she gently told him to be quiet and everything would be all right soon. Slowly came into his mind the happen- ings of the previous day. Small beads of cold perspiration oozed from his brow. H-e shook as one with the ague. Thus he remained-fretfully tossing and at equal intervals ringing for the 'good-looking individual--sometimes a ,drink of water and then a cold towel to stifle the heat that was depressing him. The day passed and then the night. In the morning he felt better. At nine in the morning a card was sent in. It was carefully perused and the orderly was told to admit the visitor. With a slow, even stride the detective, who was none other than the Efficient Hot Wad, approached the bed. With the same evenness and efficiency of movementhe drew a chair close. "Good morning, Professor Weinbach, feeling better, I presume?" "A leetle, tangl-rs." "Then I will assume that you are com- petent to give clear and concise answers to a few queries. Give me a short re- sume of the discovery of the crime." "I had just started up the motor-gem erator unit so the boys could have d. c.

"No vunf' "Was there anyone else in the labora- tory at the time?" "Just my boys." "Anyone else besides the class?" "jawn vas in the shop." "Were his actions of a suspicions na- ture?" . "jawn vas perfectly honest.'7 At this point the door opened and the goodlook- ing individual entered. She suggested that the hour for visitors was at an end. The Eiiicient Hot Wad gathered his things, thanked Weinie for the inter- view, and bowed himself out of the room, pausing at the door for a back- ward glance at the goodlooking in- dividual. ' -1+ The Eiicient .Hot Wad sat moodily at his desk chewing hard upon the end of a big black cigar. He was arranging and rearranging a mass of data. The web was fast closing in. Link by link the flawless chain of incriminating evi- dence vsias being formed into an un- ! Seventy-Three V more Hot Wad had followed Cocky by day and by night-leaving john whom the able detective reasoned was only a tool in the hands of the designing Cocky to his able understudy and assistant, jiles Haney. With the tenacity of the proverbial bull dog had Hot Wad .doggedthe foot- steps of Cocky. Daily hiding behind a switchboard he would stand patiently peering through a convenient plug hole watching Cocky's every move. Silent- ly, breathlessly' he stood--all silent ex- cept for the ticking of the infallible stop watch held resolutely in his left hand. By this method he had determined exactly the efliciency of Cocky's move- ments-this efficiency had checked, be- yond a shadow of a doubt, with that of the last individual who had visited the fatal panel previous to the discovery of the crime. On that day all visitors had' been carefully excluded from the scene and the eiiiciency of the thief's move- ments wefe computed from his stride- the stride, of course, being found from the foot prints in the dust. The Effi- cient Hot Wad had attended to this im- portant detail in person using a mag- nifying glass and steel tape. During this period of constant hound- ing Hot Wad gathered suiiicient evi- dence to make impregnable his theory: that Cocky was the thief and had, for 4 R ' sfiffyoci f some reason, known only to himself, slipped into the laboratory under the cover of night and taken the missing volt. Moreover, the object of theft was in his possession. It 'is true Hot Wad had not seen it but he had climbed through the Library window and watched Cocky through the transom leading into his oliice and had seen him slyly extract a small wooden box from an obscure corner of the small room, open it and, bending over his desk, fondle the contents with intent eager- ness. Although it was impossible for the sleuth to determine the nature of the contents it was evident that it was of a mysterious character and of ex- treme importance to its possessor. At last, the end was fast approaching. The crucial moment was at hand. The time had arrived for the inevitable arm of justice to reach down and clutch its human sacrifice. The stage was set, there only remained to seize the villain and wring from him a confession of his sin. Could this be accomplished by the usual third degree methods? Would the prisoner yield under a mere batter- ing of words? Although the con- catenated evidence was without a single flaw the eflicient detective reasoned that more than a mere attack of words was necessary to force the prisoner into sub- mission. The tools that were to aid in a more rapid solution of the problem had been selected and arranged. Oflicers Miller and Spalding strode heavily into Cocky's office. Cocky who. at this time, was sitting at his desk greeted the visitors with an expression of awe and solicitude. Deputy Spalding broke the embarrassing silence. "As representatives of the law it has become I our painful duty to place you under arrest." "Arrest-I don't understand-why, what have I done?" Bearing a far-off forlorn expression, Cocky arose- from his seat. "It is not our capacity to discuss the matter here, sir. You must come with us," sternly broke in one of the officers. Cocky, with bowed head, followed the two officers out. He was quickly ushered to the high tension laboratory. Inside all was dark, except for a cone of light which Hooded a chair sitting in the center of the room. The prisoner was thrown roughlyqinto the chair and the bombardment of words begun. A spot played over the stern face of the detec- tive as he stood bending over the cul- prit. On and on poured the unceasing How of questions and denials. Each question being punctuated with a shriek from the high tension Tesla Transformer. Cocky, although worn and haggard from the strain, refused to give under the con- stant pounding. Five long hours had still had one elapsed. The detective trump left to play. "But I saw you with it-saw you fondling it-you have the volt hid in your office," bellowed the detective. "No, what you-."

"Transit" I ' MICHAEL, Cr the Misdemeanors of a ascot HE idea of Shamrock Hall, the being without a mascot! When being without a mascot, When Bob Sands mentioned this glar- ing inconsistency to our little home cir- cle we stood aghast at the astounding fact. Such appalling lack must no longer be tolerated if we were to preserve our prestige. Q The sense of the entire meeting being unanimous in favor of immediate ac- quisition of the missing mascot, the only matter for real discussion was the choice of kind. In his usual generous spirit Bill Spikes offered his services and we all agreed that his Simian features and un- usual bent for mimicry were especially adapted to fill the bill of a certain kind of mascot, but his insatiable appetite for popcorn and peanuts frightened us from accepting his offer. As mascot, Bill, of course, would be exempt from ever "treating" himself. So there was "method in his madness." True, with a hand organ he might prove a profitable investment but as Babe Williams pointed out, QBabe comes from B,ill's home townj, some one would always have to be along to see that the mascot didn't graft. "However,', says Terry James, "what care we for money?" To this and a timely suggestion from Hank Morey we owe our wise selection -a choice that we considered mostirep- resentative since it led to the purchase of Michael. What, indeed, could be more appropriate for true followers of St. Patrick than a real Irish goat? And what an asset he would be to our initia- tion paraphernalia! Also, the saving in the hauling away of tin cans alone, would more than offset the purchase price. What a docile goat he was, as we led him home in the gloaming! So at- tentive to all we said-an attitude that promised ,much in regard to his amen- ability to instruction-instruction that would be so necessary to his education as mascot of a Hourishing institution like Shamrock Hall. He accepted food and drink in true meekness of spirit and it was this becoming manner that so en- deared him to each of the twenty En- gineers who stood watching in admira- tion. "Sorne goat!" was the unanimous verdict of the jury that saw him grow sleek and fat on the daily fare provided at our hall. And nothing but deep appreciation from Michael-naught save the most ex- emplary behavior from our mascot-a course that we now suspect was mapped out with malice aforethought, his sub- sequent actions bearing put our belief that this subdued preliminary training was for the sole purpose of conserving energy for future mischief. Our first perplexity arose when Mich- ael, in addition to the ample fare pro- vided, persisted in consuming ten-foot lengths of hempen rope, which left him free to choose his own digressions through the neighboring yards. The loan of a chain by a long suffering neighbor failed to solve the problem, and we have always suspected, but never have we been able to prove that Bridget Seventy-Six 1 l l I 1 l I W +51 A' Tn lm MS J' Elin latin It W IM ?:ni Ea RS lid .ix Eli -ai :d 3?

There are compensations in all things, however, and we feel sure that it was the splendid practice gained in sprint- ing after Michael that gave "Fairy" Wilkins First place in the Marathon last spring. It was. however. something of a blow when we were obliged to raise a fund to release the vagrant Michael from the city Pound, his incarceration having been at the instance of an outraged Prof.. one E. P. Speer, who has a pen- chant for early gardening. It was also something of a mystery to us-this get- ting Michael into the Pound. But these Profs. and city oflicials are a crafty lot, and we'll never believe but that Michael was lured there under false pretenses. Michael, you know, is that unsuspect- ing, and having just dined to his soul's content on juicy garden truck, he was, no doubt, in high good humor, and so, an easy victim to the wiles of these defend- ers- of the law. And as if it were not enough for us to pay the fine, the mem- bers of our rescuing committee were obliged to listen to a blustery justice of the Peace expatiate on the wounded feelings of the owner of the garden which had been so ruthlessly devastated by a worthless goat-a garden that had been coaxed into existence only after Weary Weeks of work by a patient P1'Of-, who prized the result of his toil far above the price of shekels. "It 001115 be no balm to Prof. Speer's feelings," thun- dered the austere justice, "to I'CCCiVC pecuniary recompense now," but thC,.1aW had no such contempt for lucre, and to prove it, that nervy Justice fined us alll, additional ten on general pri1'1CiP1C,Si Seventy-Seven ' En route home with the gormandizing Michael we stopped to view the re- ma1ns of Prof. Speer's garden and, by love! the Justice was right--there wasn't enough left of that lovely little cabbage patch to christen it brussels sprouts! On reflection we decided that it was no use nor was it any cheaper to put Michael on short rations at the Hall, as punishment for his unseemly be- havior, for in spite of us or outside au- thority he would forage for himself. Yet, after his experience in the Pound he seemed to realize the gravity of his latest trespass and remained close home for several days. We thought then we had really impressed him that the Jus- tice was not fooling when he said, "An- other such caper and you will be obliged to dispose of that infernal goat!', So we heard no more complaints until when Pete Stapp came down with the small-pox, the neighbors all with one accord pointed the accusing, Finger at Michael, averring that his perambula- tions in remote sections 'of the city had been responsible for this awful judg- ment on our tribe. Being property own- ers we refused to have our patient trans- ported to the pest-house, and we held' out for our right to an investigation of the accused Michael, with the result that the most rigid inspection failed to re- veal a single germ of this eruptive feb- rile disease stalking abroad in Michael's curly coat or lurking in sinister glee anywhere about his goaty epidermis. So we all kept quarantine together. No doubt, to a less optimistic crowd, the studied persistence with which fel- 10W.,gitiZCnS of the town "passed by on 'She other side" when traversing our block, wouldhave been cause for cha- grin, but appreciating the natural timid- ity of human nature in a college town, we generously overlooked the slight, and did our utmost to show our fraternal feeling by cheering the wayfarer with hearty and unbiased greeting: Small pox-Chicken pox-strict quaran- tine, Ruminate-Fumigate-We don't give a bean! As time went on we began to fear that Michael must sooner or later de- velop a yellow streak, he disposed of so many of the Small Pox proclamations. The City Council, however, displayed great civic spirit in making a special ap- propriation to enable the Board of Health to keep us supplied with these artistic posters, so all who ran might read. ' With this one exception-this pe- culiar taste for yellow literature, Mich- ael's behavior all through quarantine had been so exemplary we felt assured of a laudable future, and when once more we were allowed the sweet privi- lege of mingling with our fellow men, Michael was accorded privileges hither- to withheld. With the devotion of a lover the happy mascot attached himself to the late invalid, whose society he had been so long denied. And in sedatest fashion would he stroll with Pete on the latter's long walks to recover health, while Pete's girl, fof course Pete's girl was alongj, became very fond of the af- fectionate Michael. All might have been well, if the girl hadn't bought that new spring hat. Per- haps it was all right for her to satisfy her vanity with its purchase, but why in heaven's name did she consider it nec- essary to take the bonnet on a late twilight stroll? Who'd see the thing at night-and in the park?. Anyway, Michael was caught red- handed fMichae1 was so human we're sure you'll let the metaphor passj the discoverey beingmade as the last row of straw' was tickling hisdiscriminating palate. To the rest of us, the episode spelled good judgment on Michae1's part-Pat Donovan had seen the lid and said it was a fright, but we couldn't say to a patient just recuperating from re- cent illness that his lady lacked good taste in millinery. So we dutifully ex- tended our sympathy to the bereaved Pete. No need to say we'll make a long story short, for all there was to it would read like this: The girl lost the hat and Pete lost the girl. Then to us Peter said, "This is the last straw" Cthat was literal, you knowj, "And was Michael worth all this?" Now, Michael being Irish, the answer was obvious to all but Pete. Mary Estimus Barnes. Q 1 ff Qeventy-Eight A, Moonlight pastel I-ILE moonlight fell full upon the greensvs ard of the nounds The oi r ' in ' greensward was soft, however, and the moonlight sustained no serious injuries. Between the third and fourth columns two figures, economiz- ing space in a manner painfully evident, might have been seen sitting. The voice of the youth, rising and falling to the music of the power-house, finally stag- gered to its feet and remarked: "Winsome damsel, I am in love. I have arrived at this conclusion not has- tily, but after careful introspection and experimentation. Since first I met you I have been troubled, my most alarming symptom being an aching void. Tonight the throbbing of that vacuum has been so strong that I have been able to locate it in my heart." The voice of the youth choked with mingled emotion and tobacco, both 'of which he had been incessantly swallow- ing. Spreading a handkerchief upon the ground, he fell upon his knees, severing with his impetuosity the last bond of connection between his suspenders and blue-sky trousers. "Oh, fairest of maids!" he' pleaded, "enter now into that emptiness and H11 it with thy light and lavender perfume." The fairest of maids smiled sadly and ve-nty-Nine abruptly. Her face wore that far-away expression so characteristic of the dome. I-Ier mind was wandering down the dim corridors of memory and had further to go than to the new library building. Her silence had the 'delicate odor .of Spear- mint. , The youth pressed her for an answer until his arm ached with exer- tion. Finally, after consulting her 'blue- book, she made reply: "At present I am heart-free. How- ever, Johnnie jones is scheduled for two weeks from next Monday, until then I am thine." As the fatefulwords fell from her lips the youth caught them before they hit the grass and pressed them to his bosom. The maid leaned over and planted a kiss upon his youthful brow, coyly removing her teeth before doing. After regulating their hearts so as to run neck and neck, and combining their thoughts into one idea, they wandered out into the cold, unfeeling world, and naught could be heard in the column- punctured atmosphere save the strident bazoo of the bull frog in the sewer. e .Very respectfully submitted to the 1916 Shamrock. .

With mirrorscope, primer, dust covers and chains, With a twenty-man top which gets stuck when it rains, With fire extinguisher, rims which de- mount, With covers and holders and racks with4 out count, With battery testers, a few extra tubes, A slick cigar lighter to capture the rubes, With dimmers and wrenches, gas Savers and pumps, And reinforced springs to take care of the bumps.

P14 PB' PB A rather extraordinary experience was the lot of one of our esteemed en- gineer brothers, Mr. Longshore. It ap- pears that he had been keeping com- pany with one of the fair sex. Whether or not he had or has any serious inten- tions, we know. not. Some time ago there happened to be a game, the young lady wanted to see that game very much,,in fact, she had set her.dear little heart on it, and was very determined that she should not miss it, nor that he should miss it under any circumstances. Several times while strolling around the campus with her, she gave him' several hints that she wanted him to take her, but to no availg Qhe would not fall for them. Finally she became desperate and blurted out, "Will you take me to the game? Please do." 'fReally," he replied, "I can't, for I am broke." "'All right," came back a very weak voice. After a short time, he again met her and she gave him a dollar and a half, saying, "Buy our seats." "'To be sure I willf' he exclaimed with unadulteratedjoy. ' g The day of the game was enjoyed very much by both, not so much the game, but the fact that they were to- gether. Although it is to be supposed that the young man felt 'rather like a sheep killing dog, as the young lady had made the date with him and had paid his way. Nearly a month had passed when he made a startling discovery. The young lady had given him a dollar and a half, but that only a dollar of that was her own, the other fifty cents she had' bor- rowed from another young man that she knew. P14 P14 P14 Walter had received as a birthday present a gift locomotive, the motive power of which was electricity from a storage battery. Delighted with the toy, he would have spent most of his time in its enjoyment but for the con- stant warnings that he must be careful or the batteries would run out. His Aunt Letitia was the most persistent in these admonitions and one rainy day he be- come discouraged and went upstairs to a closet in search of another toy. Aunt Letitia followed and, during the quest, kept up an uninterrupted flow of good advice to little boys. In the thick of it Walter gave up his hunt and stoically marched down stairs. I-Iis mother in- quired if he had found the toy. Q "Oh, no," he replied with an audible sigh. "I had to give it up, 'cause I was afraid Aunt Letitia's batteries would run out." - P14 PI4 PF G. D.

Hfbbard. .i "I, as a mechanical engineer, which I think I am, that is I am considered as being a successful man and a scientific engineer, don't know what I would do in such a case, that is I don't think I do. I once, while I was with the Lehigh Valley, just after my trip to Europe in 1892, being sent there by the Pennsyl- vania to study the Mannesmann process, that is, I think that I was sent there for that purpose, while 83,000,000 worth of my compound locomotives were under construction, had such a case come be- fore me. I think that after listening to Karapetoff playing on 'my piano in my private residence, I decided to do that' thing, that is I am pretty certain I did, still I am not sure, so I will look it up in Kent. Mr.--just what was I thinking about while Karapetoff was playing my piano in my private resi- dence? I know this, however, that if I did do that thing, I used chrome nickel vanadium steel, heat treated to the sor- bitic condition at about 1200 Cawnti- grade, that is, I have an idea that it was either gammar or betar iron. I very likely first studied the microscopic structure according to the Roberts Aus- ten diagram in my new Encyclopedia Brittanica, eleventh edition, page 1140, six inches from the bottom, where I have made marginal annotations accord- ing to my own practical experience. Now if you are wise men you will do the same, for I do it. This was a great aid to me while a student at Brown, for then I fought a duel with Edwin Booth the great actor-shortly after I left Brown on account of bad health caused by examinations-on the stage of the local theater, wherein I was disarmed much to my discomiiture, 'since I was a very noted fencer and could have won the duel with ease if only I had had a chrome nickel vanadium heat treated steel foil according, to the specifications of the American Society of Automobile engineers, and approved by myself. This was the cause of my putting a gear of like microscopic texture in my new ex- perimental lathe. At the next meeting, you will be prepared on Chapter 9. Are there any questions, as to the lesson to- day? I think that I have explained it very fullyf, Eighty-Eight . Q Slliifock A MORNING IN GRAPHQIC right? All right." Marks in his book: STATICS.
