' ' :M RICHARD BROWN TO whom this book is dedicated, has been with the University since its infancy. He is a man of wide practical experience. His Alma Mater was that of many of the world ' s most famous men— The World— and his present posi- tion in the University of Nevada is due alone to his integrity and personal worth. He has endeared himself to every student who ever attended the University, and none who called on Mr. Brown for aid was refused. His patience is long-suffering, and the heart that beats in his sturdy bosom is too large for the tenement of clay in which it is contained. In after years, when old memories come crowding up, when our race has been nearly run, whether success or failure be our portion, the one image that will stand out in bold relief against the vistas of the past, will be the kindly face of RICHARD BROWN. i.r Journal Press Reno, Nevada ' I Artemisia Staff Bernard Francis O ' Hara, Editor-in-Chief Goodwin Stoddard Doten, Literary Editor William Albert Wolf, ) t , n-j- John Owen McElroy, S ' ' ' ' ' Wolfer Burt Harrington, Campus Robert Winfield Hesson, „ j j.? James Gordon McVicar, Photography Saxe Wilton McClintock, Art Editor Marcus Givens Bradshaw, Business Manager Fredrick Whitaker, Assistant Manager Governor John Sparks JOHN SPARKS, present Governor of the State of Nevada, was born in Winston county, Mississippi, August 30, 1843. He came to Nevada in 1868, during the White Pine excitement, and located permanently in Elko county in 1881, engaging in farming and stock raising. In 1889 he moved to Reno. Since then, besides the cattle business, Governor Sparks has been largely interested in mining; the Wedekind property he purchased in 1901. Our Governor ' s life on the Texas frontier was one of extreme hardship. For four years during the civil war period he fought against the many wild tribes that infested the country. In 1875 he was commissioned as Captain of the North Platte Guards. He assisted in the subjugation of the Sioux and Cherokee Indians. Throughout President Grant ' s administration he saw hard service. Like all men, however strenuous their lives, he fell a victim to Cupid ' s unerring eye, and was married in 1879. The first man in Nevada is a striking figure. Tall, with piercing dark eyes and broad shoulders, he looks not unlike some Roman soldier clad in the garments of the twentieth century. OUR months of constant effort have at last borne fruit and the Artemisia of 1903 is open to your perusal. In publishing the Artemisia we have tried, so far as lay in our power, to break away from the beaten path followed by our predeces- sors. That air of sameness which characterizes many annuals becomes monotonous, and takes away the charm of expectation with which the University waits for the real chronicler of the year ' s doings. Our one aim has been originality. If our readers think we have accomplished this, well and good ; if otherwise, we care not, for the opinion of a college community is too fickle to receive much consid- eration. Those who have been immortalized by the Josh Editors should be gratified, and not seek to do these overworked individuals bodily injury. In defiance of all precedent, we take this opportunity of apologizing to the Faculty for our many shortcomings, but deep down in our hearts we know that, had we to live them again, our college years would be spent with the same disregard to decorum that we have already shown. ♦ O C3 C C3 C } d} %fi)j fi) %n)i ' div t CONTENTS Frontispiecf Dedication 3 yVrtemisia Staff 5 Governor John Sparks 7 Greeting 8 Board of Regents lo The Faculty u The Record of a Year 20 The Student Body 23 The Aktmni 24 Classes 25 Our Cadets 47 The Band 49 Debating 5 1 Normal Class ' 03 53 The Art Lecture Course 55 Ethics and Public Speaking 56 Fraternities 5 Sororities 63 Societies 7 Athletics 77 Social Life 91 Independent Association 94 Literary Doin ' s 95 The Grinders 123 " " n -- aPAF arA » .r ' mi The U. of N.

The Record of a Year! The college man or woman who has done his best for himself or others has so far added to the strength of his college in scholarship, in athletics, in society. The college man or woman who has failed to live up to the standard which the best college opinion has established has so far subtracted from the character of the college in scholarship, in athletics, in society. For a college is a community of souls bound together by common aims and aspirations, by common pursuits and enterprises. The Record of a Year ! Of the individual student it is a record of mingled success and failure. He has kept step with the better music, but he has not always refrained from lagging in his step. He has pre- served the general trend of college life, but has not always maintained the high ideals with which he entered upon bis course of study. He has, for the time being, seemingly forgotten the main purpose of his coming to college. Instead of being a place of earnest effort, he has found it possible to be idle for a time. But only for a time. Sooner or later he comes to grief Instead of realizing that every day makes or mars his character for industry and achievement, he treat ' s the pres- ent as of but little moment, but dreams of a good time coming, when he will lead men by his judgment or his speech. Then when he is rudely awakened from his dream, it is only to find himself far behind in the equipment of scholarship and discipline and fit to take only a subordinate place in the world. lyooking at the last year as a whole, it is the record of a good year. In some respects it marks an advance over previous years. The students have given evidence of growth in those ideas and habits of conduct which have also given better standards of student life. There are still serious deficiencies on the part of some. Instead of putting classes and lessons first, they give themselves to society in its various phases and let their lessons and scholarship have the remnant of their time and strength. This is a serious mistake, because it puts the 20 minor in place of tlie major, the incidental in place of the important and necessary. But even with this mentioned as a fault to be over- come, it has been a year full of good work, of healthful sport, and of a disposition to cultivate manliness and womanliness in all the relations of student and social life. Commencement season of 1902 was profitable and instructive. President Benjamin Ide Wheeler of the University of California gave the Baccalaureate sermon. What a treat it was ! Thoughtful, without startling paradoxes ; reasonable as a common sense way of putting things is reasonable, and yet inspiring and spiritual in the highest degree. The scholarship address was delivered by E. S. Farrington, one of the leading lawyers of Elko and eastern Nevada. His address was a strong plea for more intelligent and more conscientious discharge of the common duties of citizenship, especially by those who enjoy the bene- fits of the best education the State is able to give. The Commencement address by David Starr Jordan, President of Leland Stanford Junior University, will long be remembered by those who heard him and heard him at his best. The address was strong and wise. It seemed to me that President Jordan had gathered together all his best thoughts from his best speeches and then had liberally poured out this richness of thought and feeling into the hearts and lives of those about to graduate. The retirement of Captain H. C. Clark at the close of the year and the engagement of Captain C. T. Boyd as Professor of Military Science and Tactics and as Commandant of the Cadets was an event of importance. The administration of the Military Department by Cap- tain Clark was far from being satisfactory, but it was owing to his physical disability, brought upon him by hard service in the army, that he was not able to do his work at this College in a manner that was agreeable to the officers of the University. In personal character Captain H. C. Clark is above reproach, and he deserves the respect of the students for his honorable career in the army of the United States. The coming of Captain C. T. Boyd was an auspicious event. A thorough disciplinarian yet tactful, he has brought the Cadet Battalion to a very satisfactory standard at present, with the assurance of ad- vancing proficiency. Captain Boyd is not only a capable Commandant but he is a good teacher, as is shown by his lectures on Military sub- jects. He has suggested several important changes which have been adopted. Among these may be mentioned the bill passed by the last Legislature which requires the Governor to commission the officers and, after they graduate, to carry them upon the roster of Commis- 21 sioned officers of the State subject to the call ot the Governor In case of need; and further the issuing of warrants to the non-commissioned officers by the President of the University, upon the recommendation of the Commandant. The Cadet Corps has full confidence in Captain Boyd and take pleasure in observing his wishes and obeying his commands. The Athletic events of the University have made an excellent record the past year. Not that the reward has always been according to the merit of our men, as we have thought, but yet that the recogni- tion has been substantial and the interest for the future bids fair not only to be maintained but to be increased. The Football season, which held the first place during the first semester, was full of surprises. We had a good team, perhaps the best that the University has placed upon the gridiron. In the games upon our own field, we showed the ability and training of veterans. When we went to Calilornia we did not make so good a showing. There are several reasons for this, but the principal one is, I think, the want of experience with teams of equal merit upon our field during the season of practice. If the coming year shall see the organization of a team by the Wheelmen ' s Club, this obstacle to our successful playing will be overcome. The young women of the University have made a most excellent showing in Basket Ball. They are playing a better game than ever before. Individual excellence gives way, when necessary, to the well- drilled team work. They do not play to the galleries, but play into the hands of each other. They watch each other and help each other in a really marvelous way. All honor to the girls who work for the honor of their University ! The Declamation contest and the track events of the Academic League of the High Schools of the State is exciting unusual interest this year and will undoubtedly be earnestly contested. The League is conducted under the supervision of the University Athletic Association. The work in debate has improved and will grow in the esteem of the students until debating is recognized by all the students as worthy of their best efforts. And now the Class of 1903 draws near to the close of its history as an undergraduate class. It deserves well at the hands of the Regents and Faculty. It has " maintained the proper dignity and worth of Seniors. It has sought to cultivate good fellowship and good order. It has cooperated in maintaining the Crucible Club and the Literary Societies. It has fostered Athletics and Debating. Vale, Class of 1903! Salve, Alumni of 1903! 22 The Student Body THE organization known as " The Student Body " is the nearest approach to student government, as known in Eastern Univer- sities, that we have here. A system of government by the students was tried for a time, but no one seemed to enter into it with the right spirit, and, like many other good things in the U. of N., it was drop- ped, or to speak truthfully, the Faculty reached out its mailed hand of justifiable oppression and took the right of dealing out justice. The Student Body, as it is, has control as far as the " divine right " of the Faculty permits, of all the Athletics and also of Debating. It is the Athletic Association. Managers for the different sports are elected by each class. This makes four representatives for the committee, and there is a representative for every department of athletics. The Senior members of each committee are managers for the different teams. The officers of the Student Body are: President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer, and are elected by the vote of the whole Student Body. The Treasurer has charge of all the A. A. funds he can beg or borrow from the Faculty. When a student registers, he or she pays an Athletic fee. A com- mittee in the Faculty — the Athletic Committee— takes charge of of this, and makes strenuous efforts to keep the students out of debt All bills must be passed on by the Executive Committee, the President and other officers of the A. A. and managers of the different teams. If they decide to pay the bill, they have to consult the Faculty committee. When anything is to be bought, the President of the Student Body brings his unusually brilliant oratorical powers to bear on the afore- said committee. They respond sometimes to eloquence that would cause moisture to ooze from a blast furnace or drive an optomist to the verge of suicide. Officers: President --------- John O.

Their real, initiatory introduction to college life was a two weeks ' warning of what to expect from the extremely egotistical Sophomore Class. But in a never-to-be-forgotten contest, the like of which has never since been witnessed on this campus, we, ' ' the verdant bunch of Reubes, " evinced a stamina that quickly won recognition for us from the upper-class men and a wholesome respect from our precedented rivals. In our class work we established a standard that we may ever point to with pride. Shortly before Christmas we entertained the Sophs in a style typical of true Western hospitality. Shortly after our return from our holiday visits, we were conde- scendingly told by an obliging ' ' friend ' ' we would be so badly scored against in the inter-class baseball contest that we might have it come lighter on us if we forfeited the game, by so doing the score could be but 9-0, whereas it would otherwise be simply overwhelming. Having heard such boastful prophecies heretofore, however, we declined to follow his " well-meant " advice, and victory was ours with a score of 17-16. It was a noticeable fact that up to the final inning our rivals whooped it up strongly, reminding us of a conclave of coy- otes paying tribute to fair lyUna, and at its termination evinced charac- 37 teristics of the aforesaid by silently and stealthily stealing away. Just prior to this time, our Sophomore friends, envious of atten- tions showered on us from all sides, determined to obtain cheap notor- iety by painting their class number on Regent Evans ' new fence, near the Mechanical Building. After our game we determined to give them a strong reminder of what the} had suffered at our hands, not so much because we desired to humiliate them unduly, but because their boastful proclivities led them to hint at our quiet and peaceful motives being impelled by sundry attacks of Pedibiis F. Arcticiis. Knowing they would attempt retaliation, we wisely set sentinels to guard the fence, but unfortunately grim Morpheus gained control of our sentries and the bold, bad, " spirited " (in one way to excess) Sophs daubed our handiwork beyond recognition, and but for the mysterious and unlooked-for appearance of our beloved " Prexie, " we would have made our foe pay dearly for his fun. " Things were, however, amicably settled, and we proceeded to forget the incident. Not so our rivals. Piqued at their repeated failures and our utmost indifference for them, they challenged us to a track meet. The experience of a year stood them well in hand and we met with our first defeat. The Spring Term approaching a close, soon found us preparing to assume the Sophomore mantle, our desire being to conduct things in a manly and honorable way. Vacation life was haifed with joy and all thoughts were intent on profitable pursuance of our respite in college life. At the beginning of our new duties, upon our return, we were sorry to find that of twenty-three men engaged in the class rush of the previous year there were left but thirteen. Thirteen men to do battle with but thirty-four. We again demon- strated our " never-say-die " spirit by following college precedent to the letter and accepting an inevitable defeat which delighted our Junior friends far more than the victors themselves. The former, now knowing they had allies who, b} force of num- bers, could do what they themselves never could, put up a dummy on on the ruins of the Agricultural Station. " Cupid " Barker, single- handed, took it down and we were enjoying a fine mix-up when the " P rex " interfered and the dummy served to generate steam in the shop boiler. In this year we experienced what no class did or probabh ever will: mean, contemptible, underhanded annoyances, plainh ' emanating from an upper-class source. But " thro ' thick and thin " we persisted 38 in giving a smile for a blow and a song for a hurt. Such harmony as pervades the atmosphere surrounding us must surely augur a like return of nought but blessings in our real life to come. We both gave and received hospitable entertainment from the " Baby " clas and ended a half year of anything but bliss. The follow- ing semester we wisely desisted from removing a caricature of ourselves from the reservoir, because we knew such a procedure might have been attended with serious results. If ' 04 wishes to glorify and proclaim from the housetops their conduct in this affair, they should surely reason as we did, but reason and might " gang aft aglee, " and they may interpret as they will. In all these contests our girls stood nobly by us and their class feehng has always held them high in our esteem and put them on a basis firm and adamant. Where masculine brawn had won for us, it was always ably seconded by feminine inspiration and confidences. Shortly after the dummy episode, the most unique offence to Fresh- men feelings and general decorum, was perpetrated by us when we spirited a " jack " and inscribing him liberally with " ' 04, " put him in the tennis court to receive wel- corre from his comrades. They be- lieving, however, he had reached a higher plane of mentality than they, modestly refused to bring him to their level, but insisted he should attain full Sophomore rank. Of course we did not protest, but con gregated to warmly welcome our new classmate, when the Freshies objected and we mixed things. Results — Lincoln Hall Sophs and Freshies banished for two weeks at a time of financial stress and town papers recommending we all be tried for vagrancy or give evident means of support. By combining forces we were able to meet the issue and treated the afiair in our usual happy-go-lucky fashion. Upon our return from exile we resumed our usual duties and, having gained experience from a former year, at the approach of Commencement we were prepared to appreciate that festive period to the utmost. By this means we gained social prestige and upon Com- mencement Day left behind us all the cares and tribulations of a two years ' turbid voyage, and were eagerly willing to accept what Fate 39 should decree In our college life as upper-class men. Up to this point we had been unconsciously having our characters moulded to some extent and now we could see what possibilities were within our scope. We determined to forego the policiy of our predecessors and let the lower classes fight it out without any interference or assistance from us. We applied ourselves assiduously to our work and allowed events to shape themselves. Our proteges easily won the customary cane rush and celebrated it in their own way. We did organize a football team, but our old rivals refused to play us and for obvious reasons. In an inter-class debate we were defeated, but the margin was so close that the decision as to which were the better would involve much argumentation, so we merely claim a standard closer than that given us by the judges ' decisions. In social lines, as in everything else, ' 03 was recognized as pro- ficient, and as entertainers we have a record from the ever-to-be- remem- bered Junior Prom. While we have never shown very much serious mindedness in any of our undertakings, results show that labor accompanied and inter- mixed with fun, can accomplish as much as close application, with unswerving zeal, produces. Professors, not taking the view we do of such proceedings, insist that we are not getting the full values of our courses, but it remains for the future to conclusively show whether we are equal to those who have gone before. A condition prevailing here as elsewhere has much to do with the adoption of the policy we pursue. It is an indisputable fact that a man, showing marked proficiency in special lines, attains no more credit than the one not so blessed. The second semester found us vigorously pursuing our routine work when smallpox must needs disturb our happy dwelling place and owing to ideas we, as independent American citizens, insisted upon asserting we were banished from this realm of knowledge for a period of time that seriously affected our work for the rest of this year. But " live and learn " is an expression oft quoted to us, and now we applied it both ethically and practicalljr. That we did surmount these difficulties is a source of much credit to us. In the art of surveying and mapping the mining class accom- plished a piece of work in which the experience undergone was of inestimable value and the result highly creditable. Our lives have by this time become so closely associated with the steady growth of our vigorous institution, so we naturally seem to be part and parcel of its every advancement; and just we, ourselves, are 40 an important factor that might make or break future advancement. That our influence has been to its betterment may well be said, for there has been no friction of students among students or students and faculty. Our men in actions still insist they are boys, but the will and power of a man and the heart of a boy may go well together. Our philosophical turn of mind will smooth Life ' s pathway leading to suc- cess without souring our temperaments otherwise liable to bruise and distortion in the ever-hastening, ever-struggling stream of the mul- titudes. We are now deserving of respect, and certainly hold recollections fated to be the most pleasant ones of our lives. Our dearest wish is when we leave this dear old place we will never be forgotten, and that when parting must come " Fare thee well; and if forever, still forever, fare thee well !

A class organization, superintended by the gracious ' 02 ' s, was effected, but the harmony pervading such meeting was severely encroached upon by presumptu- ous mandates from the upper class which would, if -followed out, haye entailed no end of trouble to members of the Baby class. Indeed, the spoutings of the Junior sponsors were of such an anar- chistic nature and possessed such a fiery line that the poor Freshies were simply bewildered as a mortal must be, transported from our mundane sphere to the regions of Dante ' s Inferno. Receiving assur- ances they could accomplish easily what ' 02 men ever failed to do, the new-comers marshalled a force of thirty-four men against a mere hand- ful, thirteen determined Sophs, and after a valiant struggle the babies were declared winners, which brought heaps of joy to the hearts of the noble Juniors. Doubtless believing this one victory made them invincible, when the football season arrived they confidently issued a challenge to their rivals, but where numbers were even though weight was in their favor, the science of the older class balanced the avoirdupois and the game resulted in a tie. All former wrong-doing of both classes was mutually forgiven at the Freshman Glee, and here we give ' 04 her due. As entertainers she possesses as pleasant and agreeable company as one would wish to 42 ■E == : " «P ■EF ' meet. The following spring evidently showing too much tendency to- ward continuance of friendships inculcated at the Freshman Glee ' 02 again put wild thoughts in the empty pates thirsting for knowledge, gracious or otherwise. A caricature of the rival class was neatly sta- tioned in the reservoirs near the cottage, but ' 03 again used good judg- ment and remarkable discretion; not through fear, for did not one knight easily and single-handed already remove the offensive sign afterwards replaced by a zealous ' ' freshie. " The expense of its removal ' 04 had to bear: Thereby discord arose between them and the powers that be. Repeatedly incited they attempted artistic stunts on Regent Evans ' fence, thus precipitating upon themselves the wrath of the rul- ers. It not being mentioned as ob- jectionable to adorn the person of a " jack, " with class symbols, one fair morning ' 04 was enriched by the addition of a member afterwards assumed to have been of superior mental abilities. Verdict, after re- sulting " rough house, " highly fav- oring ' 03, and an opportunity for members of both classes living in Lincoln Hall to reap the fruits of their folly and kiss and make up. The Sophomore year was one of comparative quiet. The Freshies had convinced ' 04 the futility of competing against them in a cane rush, but ' 05 maintained her superiority as being mighty handy with the ball and bat. But alas ! when visions of pennant wee serenely presenting themselves to the mind ' s eye in the present year ' 03 showed them how she is played and the sanguinary visions soared heavenwards beyond the ken of mortal vision. The co-eds of this grand aggregation are dear little things and will infuse pleasant memories in the minds of all those graced with their acquaintanceship. A more detailed account of this noble class we will leave for them, for ' tis easily seen that none can so vividly paint as those who clearest see. 43 Class History EVER since the Class of ' 05 was organized there has not been any lack of detractors of that glorious band. However, we have triumphed over all our calumniators and go down to our Junior year with an unstained record. In the cane rush we vanquished the Sophomores, expectant of victory and white " weskits, " and buried the hatchet at the Freshman Glee, where we proved our ability as entertainers. The football game, though declared a tie, was practically a victory for the Class of ' 05. Our intellectual attainments outshone even our athletic record and won for us the inter-Class Debating Cup. Outside of these things, the history of our Freshman year was un- eventful, the time being devoted to the attainment of that scholarship which has since won such golden opinions from our instructors. In the beginning of the present year, the Cane Rush, which had formerly decided the white vest question, between the under classes, was superseded by a tug-of-war. Believing that ' ' an ounce of preven- tion is worth a pound of cure, " we took measures to prevent the attendance of certain of our opponents on that occasion. A husky Freshie, peacefully sauntering to a social function with a fair maiden by his side, was waylaid and hauled off to a convenient barn. He un- fortunately escaped, however, in time to help win the tug-of-war for the Freshmen, who also captured the football game by a score of 5 to o. 44. 9 One fine morning, soon after, the assembled students gazed upon Regent Evans ' much abused fence decorated with the following script: " Freshies, a dare, ' 05, to Ma ' s and Our Babies, the Freshie Class. " The Freshies attempted to alter the decorations, but the Sophs disliked their ideas of art and renovated the fence with a few emendations. Shortly after this, the S. S. S. S. was organized, an association whose composition and purposes remain shrouded in the profoundest mystery. It will be a perpetual legacy to every odd numbered Sopho- more class hereafter. The Freshies however regard it with suspicion and distrust. Late in the semester some more than usually foolish Freshmen ab- stracted an outhouse from somewhere in the neighborhood and emblaz- oned thereon the class number of the Sophs. Battle ensued early next morning. The yell-leader gave the alarm with his trusty " 38, " but in vain. The Sophs, though few in numbers, triumphed completely over the Freshmen hordes, so that soon not one board was left stand- ing on another. The great events of the second semester were, the forcible intro- duction by the Sophs of a ' 06 pig into society at the Freshman Glee, the inter-Class series of baseball games, where we vanquished the Freshies by a tremendous score, and afterwards defeated the victorious Seniors in a fiercely contested game, winning the inter- Class pennant for the Class of ' 05. Another victory was the Freshman-Sophomore Debate, wherein our intellectual supremacy was once more made mani- fest, the judges, by a unanimous vote, awarding the victory to the Class of ' 05. ' Twere too long a task to enumerate our virtues, even if modesty did not forbid it. Suffice it to say, that it is universally conceded that the Sophomore Class contains the homeliest boys and the prettiest girls to be found in the U. of N. Class Officers: First Semester.

Army, is the V Professor of Military Science and Tactics and Commandant of Cadets in the Univerity. Capt. Boyd was graduated from West Point in June, 1896, and was commissioned as Second Lieutenant of Cavalry. He served for nearly a year in Arizona with the Seventh Cavalry. He was then assigned to the Fourth Cavalry in California, and went to the Philippines with his regiment in Aug- ust, 1898. Until June, 1899, he served in every expedition but one on the Island of Luzon. He filled the positions of Adjutant and Quartermaster and Commissary of the Fourth Cavalry. On July 5, 1899, he was commissioned Major of the 37th U. S. Vol- unteers. Up to April, 1900, he commanded the 37th Regiment U S. Volunteers, filHng every position up to that of Brigade Com- mander. Captain Boyd was detailed from Jef- ferson Barracks and enteed upcn his duties November i, 1902. He is a strict disciplinarian, which is attested to by the marked improvement in drill. The Cadet officers all admire the handsome cavalryman who. outside of routine work, is a sparkling wit. Like all soldiers he is a gallant As a result the co-eds adore him. Cadet Officers: F. H.

J Ebatt AI L the classes in Public Speaking in the University have conducted more or less de- bate work this year. The two Freshman classes under Professor Whitaker have debated several times among themselves, sometimes impromptu, but oftener with a yeek ' s preparation. The Ad- vanced Freshman Class met the Seniors who are taking the course in Public Speaking on Tues- day evening, November i8, 1902, in Room 6, Morrill Hall. The question ccncerned Vivisec- tion, the Seniors supporting and the Freshmen attacking that practice. In spite of a verj stormy evening the attendance was good. The debate was well conducted on both sides, but the decision was won by the Seniors. The yearly Class Debate between Juniors and Seniors occurred on Saturday evening, January 21st, 1903. The question was as follows: " Resolved That the United States Constitution is adapted to the gov- ernment of colonial possessions. " The Juniors supported the affirma- tive and the Seniors the negative. Mr. John McElroy, Mr. A. T. Taylor and Miss May Wilson spoke for the Seniors; Mr. Ede, Mr. Wright and Mr. Kelly for the Juniors. The Seniors won the debate. The Freshmen and Sophomores met in their annual debate on Sat- urday, March 7th, 1903. The Freshmen supported the affirmative, the Sophomores the negative of the following question: " Resolved, That Cuban reciprocity as laid down in President Roosevelt ' s messages should be made the policy of the United States. " Miss Hershiser, Mr. Pike and Mr. Louderback were the Sophomore debaters; Mr. Sullivan, Mr. Morganier and Mr. Palmer the Freshman debaters. The judges decided in favor of the Sophomores. These were immedi- ately challenged by the Seniors to discuss the question which will be the subject of debate between the University of Utah and the Nevada 51 State University. Tlie challenge was accepted. On learning, how- ever, that the debate would not be a tryout for the one with Utah, the Seniors afterwards declined to appear, and the victory, therefore, went to the Sophmores by default. Ihe committee on Debating and Literary Societies, consisting of five members of the Facult} ' , have chosen the following team to meet the debaters from the University of Utah : Miss Emily Berry, Mr. H. Louderback and Mr. Daniel R. Sullivan. The debate will occur in Reno about the end of May. The cjuestion is stated as follows : " Re- solved, That municipalities in the United States should own and oper- ate street railways, lighting plants and telephones. " The University of Nevada will support the affirmative. JOHN O. McELROY, ' 03 ALFRED TAYLOR, ' 03 MAY WILSON, ' 03 52 Normal Class of ' 03 IF ever, my reader, in years to come, you chance to meet some bril- liant member of this class who has grown famous through her tact and learning, just look at the class motto. Of course, like all others, this class had a beginning. Its members may have been termed " queer, " " awkward " and bashful, and filled with the deepest sense of awe may have stolen occasional glances at the President and members of the Faculty. But forget it all. Past is past, and with the marvel- ous progress of civihzation this class has helped fill the ranks. Now, there ' s Margaret, noted for successful bluffs and lucid expla- nations of complex subjects. Has been known to look intelligent, but counteracts the bad effects of her actions. Authority on physics — in fact, seeks rest and comfort by working mathematical and skinny phys- ics problems. Thesis subject, probably physics. We ' re proud of our Annie, who is too busy with the affairs of school to idle away precious moments in the frivolities in which ordi- nary mortals are prone. When told in botany to bring in a written report of the locust she searches the country in vain for grasshoppers. Maud, with light heart and cheerful countenance, laughs away the hours of life. She believes men were made to love, and she loves them. That is right. Give her a basket-Dall and she is alright. Helen, otherwise known as " Grandma, " is ever ready with the word of advice ; has a vast amount of human meanness ; free from prej- udice except toward those she doesn ' t like. Greatest trouble is to keep " Baby " and " Topsy " from wasting chemicals. Nettie, " long and lank as the ribbed sea sand. " Delights in explaining geometry to nations. I wish she would explain her own explanations. With head buried deep in mathematics and heart far over the continent, she employs the rest of her body in basket-ball feats. Sam — Damm, you cannot say that language undefiled ne ' er passed your lips ; you a maiden pure and simple in heart. Your strong fort is mathematics, your weak one a knowledge of the place that knowledge come from. Sweet Minnie. Her favorite flower is the violet. She thinks a single life worse than death, but cannot decide who is to be the lucky one. She seeks recreation in writing letters — to whom, I wonder? Oh, Bertha, desperately in love, but it isn ' t one of the opposite sex. a pattern of fine humility. Is able to accept what the gods provide and rejoice therein. What will become of our Gretchen? She is subject to optical illusions which cause her much trouble. For this reason, thinking she 53 has reached the door, she falls headlong from the laboratory window; thinking the iloor is a sink, she empties the water thereon and is next seen working vigorously with huge mop in hand. There ' s Grace, the grace of our number, the artistic and prim, with a flow of language as deep as a reservoir. Writer by nature and would be successful, but alas ! her heart is not in it. Phene, with the charming smile of trust, confidence and sweet Will, shows a light heart and clear conscience. After all, a good nature is a rare gift from Above. In basket-ball she is a wonder, has qualities that make us proud of her. Last and is Topsie — short in height, but long in chemistry tests. She is sure to reach her Mark in the world. A girl noted for her " good advice to . " She ' s a poet by nature, but, alas! has heart trouble and we ' re afraid we ' ll lose her. It is true that this Normal Class has its faults, but they are not to be compared with its virtues. You can find in it some of the best bas- ket-ball players in the institution; you can find in it debaters and those given to " Public Address; " you can find in it staunch members of the strongest literary societies; you can find in it depth of character and depth of purpose. As before intimated, a few of the Normals may become famous, and, to be contrary, a few will not. Nevertheless, we all hope to meet in the Happy Land, where there are no tears or shades — nor pedagogy. Class Colors — Purple and White. Class Flower — White Carnations. Class Motto: " Plan as if you ' d live forever; Work as if you ' d die tomorrow. " 54 The Art Lecture Course A COURSE in Art Lectures, given under the direction of Miss Anna Martin, has been instituted in the University. For those who have the artistic temperament, this is a rare opportunity. All the works of the world ' s masters are discussed, the beautiful creations that will outlive the present era of empire building and money grabbing, as they have previous ones, are studied with the eagerness that on%an art student can show. The lives of the masters themselves are studied. The position of Tiziano Veulli da Cadore, with reference to Giorgione and Palma, his early life and his dilatoriness at that time, showing a marked contrast to the unceasing activities of his later life. Only those painters who flourished during and previous to the High Renaissance have been taken up so far. If the interest showii this year does not wane, this course will be- come a permanent feature in this University. Miss Martin spent years in study at Ox- ford, and then perfected herself traveling on the Continent, a pilgrim to the shrines of all that is beautiful in Art. As she once said to her Class, " If you could visit the galleries and see the beautiful artistic color effects used by those great masters in the original paintings instead of the black and white effect, as we have thrown on the screen, then you could appreciate their work, and your souls would be wrapped up in it. " 55 Ethics and Public Speaking AT the beginning of the fall semester, 1902, through the liberality of Mr D. B. Lyman, since deceased, a special course of lectures on Ethics were provided for the students of the Nevada State Univer- sity. Rev. Robert Whitaker, lately of Palo Alto, California, was in- vited by Dr. Stubbs to give these lectures, and also to assist in teach- ing the art of Debate and Public Speaking for a portion of his time. Upon the expiration of the period provided for by Mr. Lyman ' s bequest the students and friends of the University, including members of the faculty, raised a special subscription to continue the work through the University year. Mr. Whitaker was again engaged for a part of his time, and has been in charge of several classes on the indicated. The rest of his time he has devoted to literary labors, having just com- pleted a small book which will probably be brought out this summer. The work in Ethics during the last semester has been conducted through weekly lectures at Lincoln Hall, and through studies carried on under Mr. Whitaker ' s direction by the Young Women ' s Christian Association. These talks and studies have been of a practical rather than an academic character, the object being to stimulate the higher life of the Univei;sity in what seemed the most practical way. At the same time Mr. Whitaker has held himself open to counsel with the students concerning any of their affairs, either personal or social, and so to promote the best interests of all. A number of Seniors elected Public Speaking, and have done good work. Regular weekly meetings have been held in Room 6, Morrill Hall, and various types of public speaking have been studied and prac- ticed there. Debates have been held, either between this class, or be- tween the Senior class, and the Advanced Freshman class, besides the usual inter-class debates. In the inter-class debates the work has been directed by Dr. Cushman generally, with assistance from Mr. Whitaker and others. The Senior class under Mr. Whitaker ' s direction has pro- vided some speakers before the University Assembly, and several of the young women have addressed the young people of the down town churches and the members of the Twentieth Century club. The aim has been as far as possible to give the more advanced pupils, both from 56 among the Seniors and the Freshmen, not only the theory of pubhc speaking, but actual practice in addressing regular meetings here and there. The work of Public Speaking was required from all Freshmen. The class was so large that it was found best to divide it into two sections, one of which was called the Advanced Freshmen class, and had special opportunities in debate work and platform address. The success of this experiment has been sufficient to justify the belief of those who arranged it that some practice in public speaking is worth while on the part of practically every college student. Many who will never make notable public speakers, have nevertheless learned the elements of a graceful bearing before the public, and have acquired the ability to say a few words in an acceptable manner without the unbecoming confusion which characterized their first efforts. There are many who have learned to stand easily and gracefully, to speak correctly and with some degree of fluency, and to think quickly and with more of logical force because of this discipline. In a country where popular government prevails, and where every man and woman is entitled to hold and to express an opinion upon public affairs, it would seem as if one of the most important departments of education must be the teaching of the ability to think clearly and to speak acceptably. This has been the aim throughout of our Public Speaking course. Elocution has been taught only so far as voice culture and gesture are necessary to effective address, and not after the artificial manner of those whose object is declamation or dramatic reading. The object has been to make the students good thinkers and talkers, not profes- sional entertainers. Perhaps the results have been less spectacular than they might have been had set pieces been learned, or special ora- tions been prepared, but the average increase in the direction of inde- pendent and convincing thought, and ready, persuasive speech has un- doubtedly been more. There is every reason to believe that with proper emphasis upon this important department of instruction the Uni- versity of Nevada can take high rank amonH schools of the same char- acter by reason of the considerable number of sound thinkers and forceful speakers who shall be proud to call it their Alma Mater. ♦ X: lCCf 57 T.

It was only possible to schedule three games throughout the season and these were with the strongest teams on the coast — Califor- nia, Stanford and the Reliance Athletic Club. There were just enough men of experience in the school to make one eleven, and these had to practice against a second eleven too weak to be of much value. This was due to the fact that their steady attend- ance could not be depended upon. The weakness of the second eleven gave the first team a feeling of false security and self- satisfaction, which, of course, is an evil that works mischief in any Hue of sport. Despite these drawbacks, Nevada made a better showing and played harder football than she ever did before. This can be said in spite of the fact that Berkeley defeated Ne- vada by a larger score than she did in 1 he previous year. But the team which repre- -sented Nevada in the Berkeley game was much weaker than the one which made Stanford fight so fiercely a week earlier. Many of the men were disabled in the Stanford game, two of the most reliable players being permanently injured, and, worse still, there were no substitutes able to fill their positions. Had Nevada been in the same condition as when she played Stanford, and further, had the professional, " Ivocomotive " Smith, been prevented from playing, as he should have been, Nevada would have made as good a showing against Berkeley as she did in the Stanford game ; and always with a possible chance of even- ing matters up by a kick from the field. Our first game was with the Reliance Athletic Club, in the middle of the season. CAPTAIN A. E. R.ORDAN " ' Speculation was rife among the town COACH A. C. STECKLE 79 people as to what would happen to the little sagebrush team when they saw those coast giants, fresh from the salt sea breezes, pass up and down the streets with manly tread and stately mein. Indeed, it was rumored that there would be church bells ringing and not a few laid away; but nothing of this nature happened, and when the smoke of battle cleared away Nevada had won the day. Nevada clearly outplayed her opponents and won handily by a score of i6 to o. In re- ality the score does not show the real merit of Nevada ' s work, as two more touchdowns should have been made. The main feature of this game was Abe Steckle ' s line plung- ing, mainly due to Captain Riordan ' s abilitj to open a way for him. The backs also deserve a large share of liberal mention, as it was a common thing for them to invade the enemies ' territory for from fifteen to twenty yards ; but it must not be forgotten that the line contributed towards making these runs pos- sible. The interference at times was all that could be expected and approached that of ideal football. Riordan, O ' Hara, F. Smith and Abe Steckle being most conspic uous in blocking for the man with the ball. The story of the game in general: Ne W. A. WOLF B. EVANS vada won the toss and Reliance kicked ofif. Leadbetter, quarter, attacked the Reliance left wing, using Abe Steckle, who easily waded through tor ten yards. The same play was tried again and again, with the same result, Abe Steckle wandering through Riordan ' s " coach and four " holes. This work would have been more disas- trous but for the clever work of an Indian player, the Reliance left half. Frisell, Steckle and Evans made good gains. Reliance gained possession of the ball on a fumble, and the side lines waited anxiously to see what Nevada could do on the defense. They were E. LEAVITT 80 electrified by seeing playing that was never equalled during the the rest of the season. Riordan and Abe Steckle repeatedly broke through and stopped plays. Such work soon relieved Reliance of the custody of the ball, and Nevada took the leather and pro- ceeded down the field. Only once more did the club men handle the pigskin. Then she directed her forces against Nevada ' s center, but " Fat " Mehn was there and she knew that she had a center of no mean ability. The ends, O ' Hara, Smith and Kearney, did admirable work getting down on points, O ' Hara being especially conspicuous on this line of work. The game ended with the ball in Nevada ' s possession. B. O ' HARA F. SMITH The next game with Stanford, one week after the Reliance affair, became the topic of absorbing interest, and many speculations were made as to how Nevada would fare with her burly neighbors, the Cardinals. If comparisons are to be considered as criter- ions, Nevada had an equal chance with Stanford. After a long and tedious journey . the team reached the enemies ' camp. At the station they were cordially greeted by a silent, drizzling rain, but soon found a way to comfortable quarters. The day of the game proved to be perfect. and the field was in excellent condition. The feeling in the Cardinal ranks was not altogether jubilant, in fact, many had some misgivings as to the outcome of the strug- gle. Nevada, aside from a few injuries, was in fine fettle, and Stanford could produce the best stock available in her camp. The game began sharply at 3 p. m. Nevada won the toss and gave Stanford the kick-off. Abe Steckle started the game by gaining eight yards on Stanford ' s right wing, and the situation looked propitious for Nevada; but, alas, it soon became ap- parent that the team was not playing up to the standard of a week F. FRIESELL t M " ' 9 1 HP? i. M L..... . H ,. HKi ' " ! Ki p. LEADBETTER N. D.WRIGHT previous. It .seemed as if a spell had bereft them of their senses. The team was slow, lacking in spirit and all .seemed to shift the responsibil- ity on someone else. It was only after Stanford had pick- ed up a lucky fum- ble and made a touchdown that it dawned upon the Sagebrushers that the} ' were in a game of football. From this time on, how- ever, Nevada plaj ' - ed a very creditable game, but the Cardinal line proved too sturdy, and, with the aid of their very efficient back field, they slowly but steadily forced Nevada to retreat over the goal line for another touchdown. In the second half Stanford, as is usual with her, began to show a weakness, or else felt satisfied with her lead and Nevada ' s efforts began to be more effective. This resulted in a see-saw game, the ball, for the most part staying in Nevada ' s territory. Nevada finally grasped an opportunity for a place-kick and Friesell sent the leather flying between the uprights, making the score 11-5. A place-kick was tried earlier in the game, and barely missed. It was easily a 65- yard kick, and one of the cleverest attempts of the season. Mr. Friesell ' s work in this game stood out as a prominent feature. He out-booted the Car- dinal kicker and used good judg- ment in placing his punts. O ' Hara, at the end, played the game of his life and was easily the most conspicuous man on the field. On punts and in the general play " Barney " was always in the midst of the fray. Luck sometimes plays queer pranks, and on this day it seemed to be playing against Nevada, for otherwise she surely would J. McELROY J. MELIN 82 ■p v W. KEARNEY C. SMITH have hustled Stanford for first place. Nevada had only a week in which to repair and prepare her shattered ranks for the game with California, which took place on the first day of Novem- ber. Crippled and maimed by her strenuous efforts in the Stanford game, and disorgan ized by reason of new men being placed in new positions without training. The men knew very well that all they could hope to do was to keep the score down as low as possible. They deserve much praise for their noble effort, for they disputed every inch of the ground with their antagonists and put up a game fight to the finish. Nevada started the game by kicking off to California. Smith and Overall began the grueling process and made gains at will. Early in the game " Tocomotive " Smith pushed the ball over for a touchdown. The second touchdown, however, was not so easily made. Nevada had now begun to play with the desperation of a dying man. Mini, the star half back, was thrown back again and again for a loss. This was partly due to his grand stand nature, and partly to the fact that " Barney " objected to the style of the play. " Locomotive " Smith was much in evidence, and Nevada could put up but a feeble resistence against his savage on- slaught. For Ne vada, O ' Hara and Riordan were the star performers, but all are to be praised for their gritty fight. The backs had no opportunity to show their ability, for Nevada ' s line was too weak to hold Califor- nia ' s aggressive forwards. The man with the ball was often stopped A. STECKLE W. GRAHAM 83 before he had tairly started. California made use of Overall ' s kicking ability, and gained much ground by this procedure. He showed good judgment in placing his punts.

This is to be deplored, for base- ball, being the National sport, should create more interest than it does. At the present time there is no honor in being a member of the baseball team. No more than two or three match games are played yearly between the ' Varsity and outside teams. The Executive does not award an " N " to men who make a place on the team, thus taking away one of the strongest incentives to competition for places. We are so far behind the standard in baseball that a representative team has but once in baseball history crossed bats with a coast college team. The ' Varsity made but one run in that game, against their opponents ' 32, since which time Nevada has kept strangely silent when it came to baseball playing. ' 02 Team J. Cameron, Pitcher J. H.

Every student who attends dances becomes a member of the Club by parting with a small pittance which goes to reimburse the musicians for their efforts. The Social Manager is elected by popular vote. His duties are very arduous. Before posting the notice for a dance there is a roll of " red tape " to be carefully measured — measurements are some- times incorrect, and dances are postponed. Dances are held once every month under the auspices of the Social management. Interspersed throughout both semesters are par- ties and " hops, " where the Fraternities, Sororities or Classes are the entertainers. Generally in the evening after a football game the Gym is the scene of much joviality. Every gathering in the Gym usually ends in a few dreamy waltzes or two-steps. Last semester the Sophomores blazed forth. Though they had just suffered defeat at the hands of the Freshmen in the tug-of-war they were determined to show the victors that ' 05 was a good loser. This they were generally conceded to have accomplished. When the fair ones sauntered homeward on the morning of November 22nd they looked back on the scene of their last plunge in the social whirl and prayed that the Freshmen were believers in reciprocity. The Junior Prom on the night of December 19th was the last social event of the first semester. At the opening of the second semester the Sophomores were enter- tained at the Freshmen Glee. Later on the T. H, P. O. gave their annual ball on Washington ' s Birthday. The Sororities added to the round of pleasure with their delightful parties, which women, and especially co-eds, know how to superintend so well. To instance the furor the Delta Rho caused: The Senior 3 fines were in Virginia City on their annual trip to the mines. Some of them were in straitened circumstances, and as they could neither beg, borrow nor steal they walked to Reno, a distance of twenty-five miles. The Theta Epsilon followed this with their social meteorite, which was food for comment in the social columns of the newspapers for days. The Sigma Alphas again demonstrated to their guests their 92 abilities as fun-makers, and among their number, shining out with his usual brilliancy, was the versatile Fitzmaurice, who has well been named " Chauncey. " In Commencement week the Senior class closes the year with the Commencement Ball. Warner Graham, ' 04, is the present Social Manager. 93 Independent Association B. F.

Worthing Ott Heizer Business Staff M. G. Bradshaw R. W. Hesson A. W. Wolf 94 The Artemisia ARTEMISIA TRIDENTA " is the scientific name, But most folks call it Sagebrush, and despise it for the same. Yet we who know it better than the passing stranger can, We know that even Sagebrush has its ministry to man. It ' s not a thing of beauty, and it ' s not a work of art. But it has the grit to grow where nothing else can make a start, And it seems as if it said to every man of thoughtful quest, " There ' s nothing that can stop you if you ' re bound to do your best. " The Sagebrush is a preacher, and he sticks right to his text; He meets with many problems, but he never gets perplexed; He has a single argument, and holds to it with zest: " There ' s nothing that can stop you if you ' re bound to do your best. " The Sagebrush is a poet, though his rhymes are very few. He winds up every stanza with a big, emphatic, " Do! " He sings: " If you ' ll keep at it you can never be suppressed; There ' s nothing that can stop you if you ' re bound to do your best " The Sagebrush is a prophet of the better days to be, He sees the wheat a waving like the billows of the sea, He sees the fruit a coming, and he says: " Don ' t be depressed; There ' s nothing that can stop you if you ' re bound to do your best. " He knows his days are numbered, but he just goes growing on, ' The world ' U be a better world, " he says, " when I am gone. But I shall leave my message for the comfort of the rest: ' There ' s nothing that can stop you if you ' re bound to do j our best. ' " And when my days are ended, and they look for me in vain Where once I reigned supremely on the hillside and the plain. Somewhere in some museum shall my message be expressed: ' There ' s nothing that can stop you if you ' re bound to do your best. ' Oh, plucky preacher, poet, prophet of the arid lands, Here ' s to your splendid spirit, and the truth that in you stands. God give us grit to do as well, and when we meet our test May we be found as ready to hang on, and do our best. — R. W. 96 2f , A Refused Invitation LONG the broad walk that wound in and out among the trees from the college campus to the town, came a number of happy, jolly, college girls. " I ' m absokitely sure that the ex. in March will send one young lady I know well, far out and away from college circles — so good bye girls, " said one of the girls, Sally Parsons who was the brightest and wittiest of that set of girls, but whose wit could not pull her through math, as she said. " No fair talking about ex ' s, when there is so much going to happen. Why, I just knew how it would be. Everything left to the last — parties, dances and ex ' s. I was prepared so I studied before hand, " said Phyllis Newcombe. " Listen to our ' flutter-by, ' the social leader and wiseacre of the crowd ; the only leading lady ever known to have time to study. " " Ah, there ' s Jack and Bud, and even Jim, And Mister Everybody, she ' s time for him, But she ' ll be an old maid — a regular crone. For she always has time, you know, to bone. " It was Sally ' s cheery voice again. All the girls laughed, they always did at Sally. There was always a smile when she began, which gradually grew and became hearty laughter when she had finished. " Ah, here comes that peculiar Mr. Stacome, girls, sober down, fall into line, wear your sombre looks. He has refused to join any frat, doesn ' t like ' socially inclined ' girls, loves bachelors and delves into the most profound wisdom. He climbs the hills and knows every little old grass or weed that grows, watches little bugs and bees, and is altogether peculiar. In a few years, he ' ll be wearing flowing locks and ruffled shirts. Back to your positions ladies. " Cheery laughter as usual followed Sally ' s speech but one bright face had taken a peculiar look — a look, which, could its owner have explained, would have meant, half shame from the speech of the girl, half shame if she would have acknowledged it even to herself, that this peculiar character was in her list of acquaintances and that she had " just received a neat little note which had asked her to go with the same peculiar character to one of the largest college dances of the year. She hoped the girls wouldn ' t notice her sudden silence. Several of the girls 97 spoke to Mr. Staconie and then Sally looked at Ph} ' llis with a smile and said: " What do you suppose Bud told me last night, girls. Why, the honorable Mr. Stacome has a great crush on our gayest little flutter- by, our own little beaut}-, Miss Phyllis Newcomb. Undoubtedly Phyllis will soon be taking an interest in bugs and wisdom, and withdraw her name from our frat and declare society merely a waste of good time. Bud is heart-broken, says he supposes that somebody else beside himself will trip the light fantastic with — " " Oh, Sally, you are so dreadfully silly lately — I — I — Why here ' s mv corner, girlies, so good-bye until tomorrow. " " It ' s another case of Beauty and the Beast, that ' s all, " laughed Sally. On a window seat, sunk deep into the cushions, sat a girl looking out over the housetops. The sun had set and the evening star twinkled brightly above the silhouetted church spires. The girl after a long inward debate, arose from the seat, turned on the electric light, went over to the little writing desk and wrote : " Miss Phyllis Newcomb regrets that she will be unable to accept Mr. Stacome ' s kind invitation for April twenty-ninth. " Then with Sally ' s words of Beauty and the Eieast, still ringing in her ears she wrote : " Dear Bud : Awfully sorry that I can ' t go Friday eve ,but Fm going to be out of town. Will probably see yovi afterward. Phyllis. " With disappoi ' tment full upon her, and disrespect for her cowardly self, she put out the light and threw herself upon the bed, saying " Ph)dlis Newco;;ib, you are the most selfish, cowardly, horrid girl. I know that that jtacome man is a fine fellow and what does Bud amount to — and why ' lO you care what the girls say. You know very well you want to go, ' jut — but this will never do. Tomorrow is the Math. Ex. and — Fll avoid all the girls. Sallv is such a — such a, yes such a witty girl. " H: The " allotment of bricks, " a ceremony which gave to each member of Sigma Rho Delta, one brick of the fire-place upon which to place 1 1 his pedal extremity, was causing the usual amount of merriment. The roll was called and as each member ' s name was spoken, that member was given a brick. Some bricks were large and some so small that one of the men declared that he would have to use his in relays. The name Herman Ellis Randolph, more often spoken as Bud Randolph, was the last on the list, but no answer was given. As was customary the name was called three times but no answer being given. Bud ' s roommate, Sydney Nelson, was to be tried for murder, for surely Bud must have been killed, to miss the allotment of bricks. Sydney was acquitted when he explained that Bud was dead upstairs, whereupon Sigma Rho Delta took itself bodily to the establishment of Bud. Utter astonishment was expressed in different ways as they entered Bud ' s room, by far the most artistic in the fraternity house. The walls were stripped — cushions, pictures, were nowhere to be seen, a lonely stool near the window was the only thing left. Bud was siting complacently on a trunk in the middle of the room. " Buddie going home? " " Buddie got some flunks? " " Buddie awful lonesome ? " Such were the questions to which Bud solemnly replied. " Buddie ' s going to live down town. " " Sweet Phyllis went awandering here and there " sang out a full baritone voice which was answered by Bud quicklv pulling a square white envelope out of his vest pocket and as quickly putting, it back. " You go wandering too, if ' you want to save your lovelv collar, answered Bud. " Really fellows, cutting down expenses, going to live down town ; going to use all extra for laboratory work and altho ' its late to begin, am going to work. Got a little experiment on hand which if it works, will help Bud in another experiment " and uncon- sciously his hand went back to the white envelope. " Well if I ever, Why. Bud, " said Sydney, " are you carrying out your threat to deal with bugs, etc., a la Stacome? " " Stacome? " and all the fellows laughed, they were slightly embittered by the sudden decision of Bud, and by the thought that Stacome was to gain what they were to lose. " Of course, I ' ll come up every day and I ' ll look after the house while you ' re gone, but tomorrow morn, I go — so all ye fellows, fare ye well and good night. Out with you— out, I say— early to bed and early to rise, its nearly one o ' clock now. Here, you Syd, come here and lock 99 the door. Good night, fellows, peace be with you. Suppose you think I ' ve got ' em, eh old boy, well, Syd flop down and I ' ll confess. You see, that ' s it, take that stool, well, Stacome ' s an awful crush on Phil and she ' s gone and refused him, and — well don ' t interrupt and don ' t grin — and me too, for the dance. Well, Bud ' s noble brain is sufficient to see that the rest of the girls made it uncomfortable for her about him and she ' s ashamed. Don ' t interrupt or I ' ll kill vou. Sally has made all sorts of fun of him to dear old Phil, and altho ' she ' s a fine girl she can ' t stand to be joshed, so rather than get joshed, she refused. See? Well, then I come. You see, she knows that he ' s a mighty clever chap with heaps of brains and she knows I haven ' t any, but that all the other girls like me, so she refuses me, too. Well, now I ' m going down to that fellow ' s boarding house and I ' m going to work with him, and I ' m going to be something. I ' m tired of having the girls think I ' m nice and lovely with lots of coin, and have the fellows that are worth while, laugh in their sleeves, and say, ' well, yes, poor fellow, he ' s lots of money, but that ' s as far as it goes. ' " I ' m tired of being petted and excused because I ' m Bud Randolph. You needn ' t interrupt, you ' re as bad as the rest, as far as the petting goes. I ' m tired of Sally, Jane, and Dorothy admiring my locks — I could pull every one of them out. Why, even Phyllis has said, often, ' But ■ Bud, what are you going to do ? ' Imagine how a fellow feels when a girl asks him that. It ' s alright if he can answer something worth while, something to be proud of, but to smile and pass it over and hope she ' ll cut it out, because you ' re ashamed of your nothingness. I ' m tired of it, Syd, tired, tired. And now go to bed, I ' ll start tomorrow morning, with Stacome by my side and I ' ll be something— if its nothing but a | blacksmith. The Summer vacation was over and once again the excitement of the reopening of college was at its height. The greetings of the old friends, the establishment of the new, and the air of business pervaded the whole college town. A month slipped by quickly before anyone seemed to realize it. Down the same broad walk came a crowd of the same jolly girls — all as jolly, all as happy as before. " Phyllis is the gayest sort of flutter-by these days and no particular star in sight. We have all been doing our share of frolic, and when are we going to stop? " asked one of the girls. " Oh as long as it goes we go with it, " said Sally, " but truly, Phyllis is extremely gay, and oh girls, have you noticed the change in lOO I , Bud. Why, he ' s worked all Summer long and is going to keep it up, and they say — " " Yes, Mr. Stacome says, you mean, " interrupted Phyllis, " oh, girls, and have you noticed the change in Sally ' s opinion, just a month gone by with only thirty days, and Stakie ' s called just thirty. " " Brrrrr " interrupted, Sally whose blush was quite betraying, " Bud ' s been working all Summer long, of course with Mr. Stacome, or Stakie if you prefer, and they ' ve done heaps of work, and Bud is going to keep it up. You know, girls, he ' s given up piles of fun and is going to graduate and — " " But Phyllis, why does Sally inform us about that quarter of the earth, when we all know it ' s the Newcomb-Randolph monopoly? or have you changed. " " Oh no, I haven ' t changed at all girlies. Bud ' s changed and I ' m nothing but a flutter-by, you know. Hi, ho— but lets hear the rest of all of Stakie ' s news. Bud ' s going to grad. and what else Sally? " " Then he ' s going down to Mexico to take charge of some mine and I suppose he ' ll trip ofif with— a little girl you know. " All the girls laughed, even Phyllis, who turned the tables by saying, " And where will you and Stakie go? " " Somewhere East of Suez, " laughingly said one of the girls and then then they separated. Phyllis once more sank upon the window seat and reflected that it couldn ' t be possible that a month had gone by and she hadn ' t seen Bud, once. She laughed and thought of how many good times she had had during the month. Bud had probably been very busy if he was going to graduate and she knew she would see him before very long. The months slipped by. Phyllis was still the flutter-by, but Sally ' s " poetic prophecy " that she always had time to " bone " held true. With all the fun her scholarship was always high and she and Bud often worked together for it was as she thought. She soon saw Bud and oftener than she would have liked to admit to Sally whom she had joshed about Stacome ' s thirty visits. Yet not once the unhappy — or happy ?— circumstance of the refused invitat ion was mentioned. The time for graduation came at last. The weeks before had been quiet. Everyone realized the work at hand — some were worried, some contented, yet all had the feeling that comes when the last good bye is to be said to the Alma Mater, and this feeling had put a quiet over things in general, that was unusual. However, commencement week was gay. All the fraternities were to have open house and all the sororities likewise. Great excitement was everywhere. In one sorority house, in particular, where reigned supreme Phyllis lOI Newcomb, Sally Parsons and the other bright and witty girls, an excitement that was simply intense held each member. It was dinner time of the evening of the commencement ball, when each girl confessed, as a great secret of course, whether or not she was engaged. There was a moment of silence and all the girls looked down toward Phyllis, but she sat perfectly calm and perfectly innocent when up from the other end of the table rose a tall girl, and with a sweeping bow, said in a very quivering voice : " Miss Sally Parsons takes great pleasure in announcing " there was a pause and all the girls murmured " her engagement, " but Sally went on, " that she will leave for her home tomorrow afternoon. " A burst of laughter followed and the girls said that there surely was more and it was no fair to be so disappointing. Then one of the girls imitating the boys, clapped her hands with a cry of " more, more, " whereupon Sally stood up and with a sweet smile said : " If the ladies, all but Phyllis and Jane will adjourn to the reception room, we will have some more. " Each of the girls laughing gaily went in and waited expectantly. Shortly afterward they heard the piano in the music room, so ofif they went. There to their surprise they found part of the room curtained ofif and Jane all alone. When they were in the room, she told them to be seated. She began to play something very familiar to them all. In came Phyllis and Sally. When they were a short distance from the curtained portion, they stopped. Sally pulled aside the curtain and there stood Bud Randolph, Mr. Stacome and another person. Jane began to play softly. Bud stood beside Phyllis on one side and Sally on the other. Mr. Stacome stood to the right of Bud. Then the other person came out. And there before all the girls who in their amazement could not realize what was going on, some of whom were still laughing over Sally ' s announcement, Phyllis Newcomb became Mrs. Herman Ellis Randolph, wife of him who always declared th at by the refusal of one invitation, he had gained something, entirely worth while. ELLA ROSS. I02 I The Fall of the Violet AY girls, have you seen that which is going to instruct us in the difficult subject of Ethics ? It is so sweetly diffident, withal, so gently captivating — " A violet by a mossy stone, Half hidden from the eye; Fair as a star when only one Is shining in the sky. " The speaker was the prettiest of a group of pretty girls, and was very evidently their leader, for all laughed heartily at her description of the Ethics professor. " Bear ye witness, " she continued, " from now on do I eschew all frivolities, cease to chew gum, to whisper in class, to cut recitations, nd all other vanities of this wicked world. Henceforth do I devote myse lf to the study of Ethics and to the captivation of the modest Violet who teaches it ! " " Oh, Jane dear, do let the poor thing alone, " spoke up one of her friends. I suppose you mean to treat him as you did that poor fellow, Johnson, get him just crazy over you and then turn him down hard. It isn ' t right, child. Don ' t try it on a Prof, anyway. " " Listen to old Gertrude preaching again. You might think she had never carried on a bit of harmless flirtation in her life, but was a model of maidenly reserve and propriety, if you didn ' t know her ! But there ' s the bell. All aboard for Ethics and the gentle Violet! " Now " the Violet, " as pretty Jane Dixon had christened the new Ethics professor, was very young, very diffident, and, it is to be feared, very susceptible. He had just come from an Eastern college, and the ways of Western maids were quite new and alarming to his sensitive nature. It was then, with a feeling of some trepidation that he faced his first class in the University of Nevada. The Ethics class consisted entirely of girls. As they filed into the room, with the usual tendency of college students, nearly all sought seats as far remote from the instructor ' s desk as possible. But some- what to his satisfaction, the prettiest of them all took a seat directly in front of him. The other girls were laughing, and nudging each other, and seemed to be in a gale of suppressed merriment. But this one, sweetly serious, and with an air of grave dignity, took her place and fastened her large brown eyes upon his face. Her attention was perfect, her grasp of the subject seemingly 103 so good, and her whole attitude so thoroughly in accordance with his ideas of what students should be, that, quite unconsciously, all his remarks were directed to the young lady in the front seat. The fact that, after the class had passed out, he saw her on the campus, the noisest of a noisy group of giggling girls, though it wounded his sensibilities, in nowise abated his interest in the young lady. Day after day, Jane took her seat before his desk and gravely listened with most profound attention to all his erudite remarks. The fact that she never asked a question or took a note upon his lectures, he regarded as an indication of a master mind which needed no explanation and no petty aids to memory. His whole course of lectures was prepared and delivered solely for Miss Jane Dixon ' s benefit. Sometimes, it is true, some disturbance, some more than ordinary frivolity on the part of some of the " foolish virgins " of the class, would cause him to narrow his watery blue eyes to two inquisitive slits, as he peered reprovingly through his gold-rimmed spectacles at the ofifender. " How ever do you manage to be such an angel in class, Jane? You used to be such an awful cut-up, and now we really don ' t recognize you under that sanctimonious exterior, " said one of the girls after class one day. " Jane, Jane, you ' re not the same! " Chanted another gaily. But Jane drew her face down to such an ex- pression of rigid piety, and then peered at them in such a clever imita- tion of the Violet ' s most reproachful gaze, that they all went off into paroxysms of merry laughter. " The real truth of the matter is girls, " Jane confessed, " that I don ' t know one elementary thing about Ethics. I gaze into the Violet ' s eyes and immediately lose myself in dreams. I don ' t even see him, or know that he ' s there at all. Poor dear won ' t he be surprised when I flunk his exam. ? I ' ll bet you a five pound box of Manheim ' s girls, that he ' ll pass me anyway, whether I flunk or not ! " " Done! " cried one of her friends, " He ' s too conscientious to pass anybody that didn ' t really get through. You can ' t work even the poor Violet that way. " " You just see if I don ' t, " was Jane ' s only reply. As June approached, the Violet ' s fascination for his pretty pupil became more and more apparent. He would watch for an opportunity to walk about the campus with her, would wait after class to give her little private observations on the day ' s lecture, and even called upon her one evening armed with a huge box of candy, and to her ecstatic delio-ht, a cluster of most beautiful violets. These she managed to 104 " keep fresh for an almost incredibly long time, and each day, when she appeared on the campus, a few of them adorned the front of her shirt- waist. This pleased the poor deluded Professor very much, and he began to debate very seriously the advisability of inviting Jane to accompany him to the Commencement Ball. Some two weeks before the final examination in Ethics, the Violet gave a test. Poor Jane! Her paper was just about the worst in the class. Poor Violet! His ideal was in imminent danger of being shattered forever. He called upon her the- next evening, and as she saw him coming she ran upstairs to her room, and persuaded one of the other girls to tell him that she had been nearly ill for the past two or three days and had gone to bed. " Ah, " thought the innocent Prof, " she was ill, her mind was not in its normal condition of brilliancy, that is why she gave me such a poor paper. Poor girl, what a disappointment it must have been to her after such earnest work throughout the term. Let me see, her paper is worth about 50 credits in reality, but I think I can conscientiously, in view of her past faithful work, raise it to a passing grade. She really did look ill, too. " " Going to bone for the Ethics final, Jane dear, " asked one of her friends. " Not I, " replied that lady, " too many other things to do. But I will pass it, you just see if I don ' t. The Violet asked me to go with him to the Commencement Ball, and I told him I really didn ' t know whether I should feel able to or not, but would let him know Wednesday evening. " " Today is Monday, tomorrow the day of the Ethics final. I see your little game, you mean to keep him in suspense until he passes you. You ' re a wretch you know you ' ve already promised to go with Erank Rogers. " " Never mind, Httle girl, " said Jane. Remember that five pound box of Manheim ' s, " and off she went with a most irritating smile. The examination was certainly very difficult, Jane had powdered her cheeks most liberally until their usual ruddy glow was dimmed to actual paleness. The Violet looked sympathetic, and corrected her paper among the very first. She had failed innominiously. He went over the paper at least half a dozen times, but to his great distress, could not conscientiously give her more than fifty-three credits, while seventy were absolutely required to allow her to pass. She came to him in the afternoon, still looking pale, and with cleverly applied dark circles under her pretty eyes. He told her that she had failed, feeling himself a brvite as he did so. 105 Let us pass briefly over llie temptation and fall of tlie Violet. A tear, a sob, a hint that with a failure she could not think of attending the Commencement Ball, especially as this failure would prevent her from graduating, and the Violet ' s fall was accomplished. His report was ready to send to the President ' s office, but he changed Jane ' s standing sufficient!}- to give her a passing grade. Then he gave her the report to take to the office. When she had gone, his conscience smote him. He wandered to a window and stood gazing out. Suddenly he became aware of a very noisy group of girls directly under the window. Could it be? yes it was Jane, her paleness vanished, the circles gone from under her eyes, every vestige of illness gone. She was laughing gleefully and actually showing the girls his report, and pointing to the place where he had changed her standing. He saw her as she started away from the group, meet his particular aversion, that young fop, Frank Rogers. He saw her show the paper to that worthy young man. He heard her call to the girls, " Remember, ladies I win that box of Manheim ' s best, bring it to the Com. ball and Frank and I will receive it from you as we head that glorious grand march ! " Slowly he turned from the window, sadly he drooped into a chair. His head inclined toward his bosom, a sigh which sounded like a sob came from his breast, and the poor Violet had wilted ! GOODWIN S. DOTEN. ;7 «ne 0-c CiMm ' n r cM ytl 1 06 A Lost Soul □ OWN — with splendor majestic — slowly down — as into a bed of pines and flowers wild — sank the red sun, the half and mighty ruler of man ' s destinies. The deep lake of pearly waters cast, " neath the last arrows of the departing, the varied, the ever changing and enchanting colors of the rainbow. High, high up 011 a crag, facing the sun, facing the city, which lay nestled on the mountain near the opposite shore, stood a man, young and litne, black eyed and black haired, fierce and defiant — stood until the first pure mountain twilight reigned, stood and cursed the just departing sun ending with, " and may you never rise " — stood there on the crag burning with a passion unappeasable — even till the broad high windows of the distant shore shone scintillant over the now star-impearled Elysium of waters. Then he descended and the plash of his oars might be heard with strokes quick and regular — in the element blue, in the waters. He was a dreamer who wasted his days and nights in dreams. He was an absintheur, a sot — who often drank deep and raved. It was whispered that in the madness of intoxication two eyes ever gazed at him — eyes of hatred and malice — and a voice would whisper through the darkness — you are lost — are lost. He was a lover who loved the most beautiful girl in yon lighted town. She loved him not — only suspected his love — and often smiled on him. She would wince under his searching gaze and flush. Then he would curse himself for tormenting her, for he knew she loved him not. He was a student who spent his days and nights pondering the mysteries of the soul. He loved to wander in the mountains and the lonely valleys. And it might have been written of him, — " He shall be a wild man, his hand will be against all men and all men ' s hands against him. " She was beavitiful. A Grecian forehead and nose ; deep blue eyes ; long myterious lashes — all shaded by huge and heavy masses of hair — brown as a chestnut when autumn first touches it with a kiss. In height — a little above the medium — slender and with the grace we would suppose an angel to possess. Her ' s a natural grace, trained and tamed by long drill under a dancing master. She was too good for him. He thought not so. For he was a dreamer, a student of the soul. Strange and wild were his theories, his hypotheses. He would think — " the heart contains the soul. If two hearts should touch, as the soul is 107 The hours of Darkness was leaving each, the souls will unite, as a kindred element, to form one soul, which, being then entire, no longer a complement to another soul as are the souls of man and woman, but all sufficient in itself, will live forever in ecstacy. " You might say it is a wild theory, it is absurd. Disprove it, if you can. He was nearing the city. Still was the night and silently lengthed the ripples from the tips of the oars. The skift at length drew up ' neath the dark wharves under a warehouse, which looked like a black and threatening fort or an abode of the silent damned. ' Neath its deep dark shadows he did tread, into the darkness. We have now reached the last scene of our picture night were fast melting into the hours of early morn, upon the face of the earth but the moon cast a yellow and weird glow. The dance was over and the dancers were scattering hither and thither to their places of abode. And as he watched and waited ' neath the eaves and pillars of a darkened house, a black horse lately gotten by him pawed the ground and sniffed at the air. It seemed like centuries that he waited before he heard the approach- ing sounds of laugh- ter. He hugs him- self with ecstatic joy for it will not be long before she will love him with a love, strong and everlasting and pure as onl} ' such a love as he knows can be. It was but the work of a moment to snatch her from the arms of her escort and be off into the darkness. The escort, the fool, stood dumbfounded. The wild, black steed, maddened by the spur, plunged on and on, away from the precincts of civilization and into the mountains and guided by its master ' s unerring hand, began to climb up, up among the crags, up, up. It seemed to him like ages, for these awful eyes were following him, were leering at him, were threatening him. And the voice was whispering those awful words : " You are lost, are lost. " He dismounted with his lovely burden. The maddened steed again plunged on and he heard its agonizing cry as it fell from the cliflf. " The eyes are growing close, " he muttered, " It must be done quickly. " A dagger gleamed in the star-light — one, two, three quick slashes and io8 ! he held in his hand still throbbing, still pulsating like a captured bird, the heart, the case containing the soul of his love. The body, neglected now, lay half buried in the chaparral and wild flowers. Once more the dagger was at arm ' s length — pointed toward his own breast. Slowly, surely it moved on toward his own heart; then it fell with a rinp- and clatter on the hard rocks. Then a crv, absinthine, despair- ing, terrible — having in it something of hell, sobbed — " lost. " A great hawk flew screaming by crying, " lost. " The chasms below re-echoed the sound crying " lost, lost, " then all was silent. That was a lonely and difficult trail. The bleaching bones of a skeleton still leans against a crag. The face grins terribly but the death ' s head is bowed. It is a lonely vigil but sweet— Only does that voice still whisper, " you are lost— are lost! " J. V. COMERFORD. 109 i Business and Cupid E rose to meet her as she entered the room. The light fell full upon his face. His presence im pressed her at once. He waited a moment before he spoke, as if he were giving her time to " size him up. " She noted that he was a strong, sensible, rather masterly looking man. His face was smooth, his hair and complexion dark, his eves peculiarly frank, his mouth and chin well set. He was dressed for the street, rather than the parlor, in a quiet becoming but inconspicious way. When he spoke his voice was steady, and his tones clear. " My name is Humphrey Wills, and you are Helen Addison, I believe, " and he gave her his hand. She took his hand with a feeling of confidence and acquaintance at which she wondered afterward. Just then it seemed the entirely natural thing to do. " I am Helen Addison, " she answered. " If you are not engaged this evening I would like the favor of talking to you a little while, " he said, as he loosed his hold upon her hand, rather reluctantly she thought. " It is a matter of great concern to us both. " " I was writing, but my writing will wait, " she replied, casting about in her mind to know what matter might concern her in common with this stranger. She half suspected he was a solicitor of some sort. " It will take me some time to state my business. " he went on. " I would like to be sure of stating it to you alone. " She looked him in the eyes searchingly for an instant. Then she turned and closed the door, and with a smile motioned him to a seat. " Thank you, " he said, with all the emphasis of her look in his tones. " I hope always to deserve your confidence. But I will not ask it further without giving }-ou better reason for it. Will }OU glance over these letters, please. " She was both annoyed and disappointed. Her fear that he was a solicitor was confirmed. Yet it could not be that he was any ordinary agent. He probably represented some religious or philanthropic enter- prise. She did not remember to have met him in an}- work with which she was associated. She took the letters indififerently. The first one she opened was in her father ' s quite familiar hand- no 1 writing. It was brief and business) ilce. But it meant much to Helen Addison who knew how careful lier father was about giving letters of commendation. It was dated that day. The letter ran : To Whom It May Concern : — This will introduce Mr. Humphrey Wills, who has been in our employ for five years. 1 have no hesitation in describing him as a man of the highest principles. A more genuine man I do not know. He is sound, safe, sensible. I would trust him in anv position he is willing to undertake. Sincerely, Alfred S. x ddison. ' T do not need to read further. " she said, holding forth the other let- ters unopened. ' ' Papa ' s word is suf- ficient. He does not often give such unstinted praise. " And she allowed herself another smile, though more perplexed than ever. " I am very anxious that you shall be altogether persuaded of my relia- bility before I state my business. " he said, without taking the letters. " You will recognize some of these other rames I think, " and he mentioned four or five men of standing, among them the Addison ' s family physician. " Doctor Morton was kind enough to examine me as to ni} ' sanity, and to testify that in his opinion I am of sound and disposing- mind, " and he laughed pleasantly. " I am quite curious, Mr. Wills, " she replied, letting the letters fall in her lap. " Am I to advise you as to your last will and testament? You are rather young to be in such haste? " " The matter is even more important, " he answered, seriously. " I may consult you about my will later. " This with a smile, which was gone almost as soon as it came. " What can be more important than a will? " she c|ueried. " A wont, " he retorted. " You are fond of enigmas, " she said perplexedly. " On the contrary, Miss Addison, I am fond of plain speech, and III J the most direct dealing. That is the reason of my approach to you to-night in this unusual fashion. I am afraid that my proposition will tempt you to doubt my sanity. I offer Doctor Morton ' s testimonial in all earnestness. " And he made as if he would indicate the letter to her. " I have had no experience with crazy people, she replied, and she looked at him searchingly again. " Let me see. Papa says you are sound, safe, sensible. What can I ask more? You do not look dangerous. I will take your word for it that Doctor Morton ' s letter leaves no room to doubt that you are in your right mind. But you are taxing severely my curiosity, Mr. Wills. You may state your proposition. I am prepared to be surprised. " She smiled yet, but he thought there was the trace of a shadow on the horizon of her eyes. He plunged in. " As your father ' s letter indicates 1 have worked for him five years. He has treated me well. This interview may end my service, but my appreciation of his kindness will remain. But I do not come to you because you are his daughter. I could have come easier if your father had been almost anyone else. Your position frightened me at first. It has never attracted me. You have. I have watched you at a distance ever since you returned from school a year ago. I was on the train that brought you home. I have learned much about you since. But I could not meet you without seeming to seek your society more than might be deemed proper. Besides I am traveling most of the time, and if I had entree into the society in which you move I could give so little attention to it that my progress in your acquaintance must needs be very slow. Yet I have come to value your favorable attention more than my position, more than my reputation, more than anything else. I have weighed the whole matter with utmost care, because it is of such vast consequence to me, and at length decided to come to you to-night, and if the opportunity were given, to ask you in a simple, straight-forward way for the privilege of trying to win your hand. " Helen Addison ' s color rose swifter than the flow of his words. Astonishment, amusement, anger, and alarm chased each other across 112 her face, and struggled for possession of her eyes. Had he looked away, or hesitated for an instant she might have done almost anything from screaming for help to ordering him haughtily from the house. But although his face grew white and tense, and his voice vibrated as if someone had struck the chords violently he kept his eyes unwaver- ingly upon her to the end. And amid the conflict of her emotions she was half conscious of the thought that his eyes were like the sky on some dark, unclouded night when the endless vista of world upon world interprets to us the mean- ing of infinitude, and the turmoil of the day gives place to an un- speakable calm. There flashed across her memory with more than the speed of light a power- ful passage from the writings of Alexander von Humboldt, in which the great naturalist and traveller recites his experience with an earthquake, when his senses reeled with the sickening instability of everything about him, until his eyes were fixed upon the stars and their ever- lasting quietude brought him to himself again. She could have cried, or laughed, or scorched him with hot words of indignation, or frozen him with icy sarcasm. She marvelled afterward that she should have done anything else. Yet she did nothing of the kind. He stopped, but he did not drop his eyes. She looked at him in absolute silence, till the stillness of the room was such that each fancied the other nmst hear the throb- bing of the heart within. Then she said with all the forced quietness of his own manner : " How do you know that I am not alreadv engaged ? " It was not just the response he expected. Her self possession excited him more than some passionate outburst would have done. Yet he was not blind to the storm which he had raised under her cool 113 demeanor. While the answer waited her beauty laid hold of him as never before. What a magnificent creature she was. He was over- whelmed with an almost uncontrollable longing lo gather her into his arms. He trembled for very fear that he might attempt it. The bold- ness of his course appalled him. He was frightened now, like one who having climbed to some dizzy height in reckless mood, fears that his madness may lead him to the fatal leap. He clenched his hands uncon- sciously, and the sweat came on his forehead. And for the first time that evening his voice was husky as he gasped : " I don ' t know. I pray God you are not. " His excitement saved the day. It was too genuine to be mistaken. His soul leaped to his eyes and met her there. She knew him in a moment as years of ordinary acquaintance would not have revealed him. His daring thrilled her. The strength of will that had kept him calm up to that instant compelled her admiration. His present passion and agony of self restraint moved all the woman in her. The very weakness that threatened him with collapse touched the fountains of compassion within her and the inward flow of tears, refused an outlet at her glisten- ing eyes, swept away all the scorn of offended conventionality, the reserve of polite training, even the bewilderment of his abrupt an- nouncement, and she answered as if her own soul had asked the Cjuestion which his words implied : " I am not. " He could not speak. Her gentleness was like the pressure of an arm about his neck. It both supported and stifled him. He saw the tears below the surface of her lids. He struggled hard with himself, but no word came. Then she spoke again. " How did you dare to do it? " The challenge in her voice was like a cup of cold water to a fainting man. He jumped to his feet. " I was a fool, " he said, brushing his hand hastily across his eves as if he were putting something away. " The first sight of you charmed me. I could not get you out of my thoughts. I scorned the common ways of courtship. They were barred to me had I desired them. I have been flattered for my ability to accomplish things in a direct way. Half your charm to me was that you seemed so thoroughly sensible, so far removed from cant and sham of every sort. I thought of you so much that I felt as if we knew each other. So I said to myself that if I might get your attention for half an hour I might win a place in -our thoughts which I could never win in any other way. I was willing to risk everything on it. But I risked too much. I had no right to 114 il shock YOU so. I have insulted you, to throw aside the veil before the Holy of Holies of your heart in this violent fashion. I dared it because I believed that you were too much of a woman to treat me with contempt. Yet I deserve contempt. My visit is a sacrilege. Pardon me, and let me go. Forget me as soon as you can. " He moved toward the door, but she stood where she had risen. " You wanted half an hour, " she replied, her own voice shaken a little with the strain. " I think I shall have to hold you to it now. You are not a fool, though your course is very unusual. " " But I have not told you all, " he broke in. " How shall I tell you to what height of stupidity my imagination went, or the extent of the profanation which I had in mind ? Yet you shall know all. Then you shall turn me out as I deserve. " He came a step toward her, and drew himself up with a deep breath. " I am not sure that I can say it, Miss Addiaon. The very thought of it seems so preposterous now. It is worse than insulting. It was imbecile. Do you know I flattered myself that before I went out from this house to-night you would give me of your own free will that which I have never asked of any other woman — a kiss. " The red flamed in her face. She started back as if he had struck her. His own face was hot with shame. " Having said so much I must say more, " he went- on. " I have loved you so that you have filled my dreams by day and by night. You were no stranger to me, but nearer and dearer than mother or sister whom I have known all my life. I have held the waters of my affection back till they swept everything before them through the outlet of this purpose into which I reasoned myself. I almost forgot that you did not know me. I persuaded myself that I could open my heart to you as a man opens a business proposition. And I believed that my love could command your love, that the sacredness of my devotion toward you would banish all sense of strangeness between us, and I dared to hope, absurd, extravagant, yes wicked as the expectation seems now — I dared to hope that my offering might be accepted and that you would sanctify it with a — " His voice broke under the stress of his emotion. He leaned upon the chair, and bowed his face, while he struggled with himself to reg-ain self-command. There was the sound of an approaching footstep in the hall. He glanced up nervously. Helen Addison was close beside him. " It is papa. He is going up stairs, " she said. The step receded. Helen Addison was so close to him that her dress brushed his hand. Her eyes were full of tears. But the tears were lighted with a 115 smile. She lifted her face toward him, in unmistakable attitude, and with glowing cheeks answered softly, " Hope maketh not ashamed. " Ii6 A Parable of the Sleigh Bells jHE beautiful toned bells jingled, in harmon- ious glee as a pair of spirited bays sped over the snow paved drive-way. The air tingled with the pure frostiness of a mid-winter day, and either cheek of the girl flushed a rosy pink, while the man ' s nose shone with perhaps an unbecoming, although healthy, redness. Fur robes were piled in extravagant lux- ury about the twain, and being young, enjoy- ment should have thrilled them through and through. But the man ' s dark eyes betrayed tokens of hopelessness, and the girl appeared as if mentally striving for that which she knew not. " Always the same answer, Lou, with never a grain of hope. Why, why can ' t you decide to marry me, dear? " " Oh, Dave! I thought that question was settled — yet I might have known you would come back to it. " " Why? " " For you always do. " " Yes, I always do, because it is the dearest wish of my heart. Lou, Lou, you are so tantalizing ; so adorable, yet the most obstinate mortal I know. " " And you are quite the most persistent friend on my list of acquaintances, Dave. " " But tell me why you wont marry me ; for you admit that you love me just a little, that there is no other fellow, and I know your father considers me a half-wav decent chap. Prav give me your reasons, Lou dear. " " Well, Dave, I will. You know my one ambition is to be an artist, don ' t you? You realize that I devote the greatest part of my time in studying and painting, don ' t you? And my professor tells me that I have a decided talent along this line — that it would be a sin to neglect it. You see my whole life is wrapped up in art, and I am doing well and am happy, so why should I wish to change it all, Dave? " " Are you not a wee bit selfish, Lou ? Do you never think of others ? " " Indeed I do, and have I not thought of your very own self even more than I have of my career in deciding upon my action in this 117 matter ? Just see how well you are getting along ! Why Dave, you were promoted three times last year, and I overheard papa say that you would be admitted as Junior partner of the firm before another six months. If you had a wife to support and worry about, I am sure it would keep you back. So there, Davy, have I not consulted other ' s interests besides my own in refusing to be your wife? " " Yes, yes ; but your point of view is far different from mine. Why if you would consent to marry me, Lou, how much harder would I strive to overcome difficulties. With a wife and a home of one ' s own to care for and to go to after the day ' s hard work instead of a tiresome club ! Oh, Lou, would not you be happier ? As for myself, I repeat that it is the dearest wish of my heart. " " I have seen so much of married life, Dave. And the wives grow listless and discontented; their spheres become limited, and their husbands degenerate into mere automatons devoid of all ambition. " " So you cherish no ideas of a congenial wedded life, dear? All men and women lose track of their earlier aims after marriage; there is a discord and jangle soon after the couple plight their vows to travel in double harness. If I convince Miss Contrary Lou that there are exceptions will she give me her promise true? " " If you truly convince me, Dave, I shall promise to be yours, dear. " The bays trotted briskly over the glistening snow, high-stepping, splendidly matched animals. A string of bells encircled each horse, and the mingling of the chimes was all in harmony. Dave pulled up on the reins, halted the team and handed the leather ribbons to Lou. " Hold them just a moment, Lou. ' ' Lou was curious, yet she made no comment as Dave alighted from the cutter, and removed one string of bells, which he put in the bottom of the sleigh. He took the reins and the impatient horses resumed their fast clip. But no blithesome jingle rang out on the wintry atmosphere ; the sole circlet of bells was deep toned, a veritable bass, and alone the bells sounded harsh and unmusical. Something was lacking; the highstrung bays seemed to notice the defect, and their ears twitched as if they were annoyed ; Lou questioned Dave with her blue eyes. Don ' t you see, Lou, what a lonely old rattle those bells emit. They are sending up a pitiful appeal for companionship. Tjhey were not intended to ring by themselves — it ' s an unsatisfying mission — not only to the bells, but to all who come in hearing distance of their monotonous solo. Don ' t you agree with me, Lou? " " Indeed I do— and why did you take off the other string? " ii8 " Oh, I am just illustrating a little life lesson. " Somehow the horses became fractious, they either wanted to bolt, or lagged in an unwonted fashion. Lou ' s nerves began to cringe as the jangle-jangle-ja.-gle of the bass bells kept up their monotone. " Dave, do replace the other string, wont you? " " Certainly, Lou. " And again the horses were stopped ; Dave took out the chimes from the cutter and buckled them about the horse. But before he got into the sleigh he unfastented the other string and brought it into the cutter with him. Once more the satin-skinned equines dashed over the packed and frosty boulevard. This time a high-pitched jingle cut the zero air. Shrill and piercing the silver} bells shook out their tones. ■ Lou, hear how those bells are appealing for their companion piece I They are far more dramatic in their clamor than were these old drones at our feet. But is not the trend of ' their appeal somewhat similar? Do they not lack a balancing chord, a steady bass note to offstand the shrill tinkle of their silvery throats? Is it that their minor tongues are singing for a mate — a heavy, essential other half? Lou, Lou, can you not see just what I wish to illustrate with these two strings of bells? " " I believe I do, Dave. " " And don ' t you understand that woman was made for man ; that a rightly constituted man is a prosy old string of bass bells until the sweetest woman in the world chimes in with a beautiful treble accompaniment ? Dear, wont you be convinced, and wont you be mine ? " " Dave, please fasten on the bass bells. " Dave did as he was bidden, and the perfectly harmonious strains of the minor and bass bells jingled across the pure whiteness of the snow mantled earth. " They sound lovely in unison, Dave, and oh, you dear, dear convincing string of bass bells ! " JOHN HAROLD HAMLIN. 119 The Conversion of Wu Chow N the early nineties, Fresno, " said my friend Hartsaw, " was a hot town. That semblance of virtue which, later became chronic, mani- fested itself then only in spasmodic outbursts. Chinatown was raided occasionally and the court-house would be loaded with trophies till the zealous deputies carried them off, and the papers would be full of compliments to the active and energetic police force, while the same dens would be running full blast under the verj ' shadow of their offices. But gambling paraphernalia is expensive, and business suffers from interruption. The proprietors of these joints became anxious for immunity from even such occasional irruptions of the law. And about this time Wu Lee Chow came to Fresno. Wu Chow was a fine specimen of the high-class Chinaman. Well educated, speaking English and French with as much fluency as his mother tongue, wealthy, too, for his quarters in Chinatown were marvels of Oriental luxury. He was a tong man of course, one of the chiefs of the Sam Suey ' s. Altogether, the sort of a man to cause con- siderable remark in a town like Fresno. There were all sorts of conjectures afloat as to the nature of his business, but any direct incjuiries, Wu, with characteristic reserve, turned aside. The Hides and Copper National Bank, had been estab- lished for nearly a year before it was rumored that the enterprise was backed by the coin of the subtile Celestial. Now the Hides and Copper Bank was apparently a most worthy institution of its kind with the usual complement of sleek, smooth- shaven tellers and cashiers. But within a few months it came to be rumored around Fresno, that the Hide and Copper B ank was a huge fake. Loans were hard to get, even on the most gilt-edged security, yet would-be depositors were assured that the bank ' s funds were full to overflowing. The bank building on L just across from the first street of the Chinese quarter, was a large, heavy, gloomy looking struc- ture of which only the front was used for banking purposes. When questioned, the officers of the Isank had answered that the rear rooms were safety-deposit vaults, yet unfinished. But, though you may fool the police, the public is a harder propo- sition, and it wasn ' t long before a respectable number of Fresnoites 1 20 knew that the Hides and Copper Bank was a gambhng estabhshment on a scale as yet unheard of in the San Joaquin. Its success was unpar- lelled. Ihe poUce were soon discouraged by two raids that revealed only empty rooms, and though they were positive that their failure was due to an underground connection with the dens across the track, yet a couple of " inspired ' articles in the leading papers caused them to refrain from further efforts. Several mysterious disappearances and ine suicide ot a prominent young Fresno business man threatened more than once to bring the " bank " into dangerous publicity, but in some way or other, these dangers were averted and Wu Chow continued his career of prosperity unchecked till the Chinese Board of Missions decided to save the Celestial souls of Fresno. Miss Ethel Fleming, had behind her a record of heroic effort in most uncomfortable foreign places, but from the moment of her intro- duction to her Fresno subjects she seemed to concentrate her efforts upon the wily soul of Wu Chow. Wu was most unexpectedly willing to be saved. He read the books that Miss Fleming lent him, he subscribed liberally t o Miss Fleming ' s mission, he attended church regularly — with Miss Fleming. Altogether it was easily seen that Wu sought no other Paradise than might be found in the eyes of the young missionary ; that her heart was the sanctuary before which he became the most passionate worshipper, if Ethel was aware of the nature of the feeling of her zealous proselyte, she gave no sign. Her efforts towards his reforma- tion were unabated, till one day the sporting world of Fresno was paralyzed to hear of Wu ' s engagement to the fair young missionary, coupled with the announcement that the " Hides and Copper Bank " had definitively suspended operations. The next few months were a dream of unalloyed happiness to Wu. Never was there a more loyal convert, never a more ardent missionary. Of course the gossips shook their heads and cackled ; more than one minister of the gospel felt constrained to remonstrate, and the Secretary of the Board of Missions announced that he would ask for Miss Fleming ' s resignation at the next annual meeting of the Board, but none of these things could disturb the happiness of the young lovers. Consequently, Fresno was acutely conscious of a large sensation when one morning in the late fall it was discovered that Ethel Fleming had eloped with Jack Straughton, gambler and all-round bad man, late faro- dealer in the " Hides and Copper. " No one had suspected it, Wu least of all. But whatever his feelings, he concealed them under the most imperturbable oriental stoicism. To one or two, who were bold enough to question him, he replied with some cynical Confucian proverb on the 121 ways of woman. " " Three years ago, " Hartsaw slowly resumed, when he had taken another drag on the opium pipe, " I saw Wu Chow in San Francisco. He was on his way to Paris as a representative from the Christian Chinese of the Canton Provinces, to the Congress of Religions then in session there. " A month or two later I met Jack Straughton. He was a miserable wreck of a man, white and shaking from the effects of a prolonged de- bauch. A prominent member of the Six Companies told me, very confi- dentially, that Straughton and his once lovely wife were supported in their wretchedness only by Wu ' s gratuity. And thus was forced upon me a hypothesis in which I had never thought to belivee — the sincerity of Wu Chow ' s conversion.

Some girls wearing square caps, came into the room, when I was in bed. The nasty things they examined my feet. They asked me how many corns I wore. The idea ! I, having corns. The oldest girl told me I had to wear stock- ings to bed, because the faculty said so. The faculty is wise and if you follow its advice, you will not go astray. Why do they do that ? Maybe it is to keep my feet warm. Bpistle II Mama, what is a sorority ? Some girls asked me to join a sorority. You don ' t care, do you ? They said I had to take a degree. Ma, what is a degree? You said I came here to take my degree. I guess that ' s it, I think I will take it. One of the girls here is very sick. She says she has a flunk. Ma, what is a flunk ? The girls say it is a disease of the brain, I told her you had a remedy for brain fever. Then she laughed. I wondered why they all giggled. The girls here are all so frivolous. Bpistle III Mama, 1 met Mr. Wolf. Mr. Wolf is nice; but Mr. McVicar— the horrid thing — is nasty. Ajax is his first name, he came to see me to- night. He is so funny. He looked flurried and stammered when he talked. He commenced to talk. " Have you " just then the mean old Matron came in " a dog around here. " The horrid woman said to him: " Why do you ask that Mr. Wolf? " He pulled his hands and feet in and said: " It seemed so plausible, that I thought I heard my trousers ripping. " The Matron blushed, it was funny. " Young man you may go. " She pointed to the door and walked out. She looked icy. I went to the door with him. He got confused and said : " Will you be mv partner for the Junior Prom? " Oh, he is such a darling. When he was 145 in the parlor he wanted to say: " Have you a partner for the Junior From ? " but was ashamed to let the Matron hear him. The mean old thing, she has had lots of fellows. I know it. Isn ' t Mr. Wolf funny? Epistle IV Mr. McVicar is nice, but that Mr. Wolf is simply nasty. On the way home from the dance, Mr. Wolf acted queerly, he said my cheeks were red and luscious as apples. He looked at me funny, and said apples were good munching. I wondered what he meant, but pretty soon — the nasty thing — he asked for a kiss. I said, " Sir. " Then he up, and gave me a smack. It isn ' t so naughty. He tried it a gain and I — boo — how I slapped him on the face. Mr. McVicar says nice things to me now. Ma, what makes a man slow? They say Mr. McVicar is slow. I don ' t know why. I think he walks fast. Ajax said Mr. McVicar is a knocker. Ma. what is a knocker? I think it vulgar to say knocker. It doesn ' t sound nice. I like Mr. McVicar. He is afraid to kiss me, but then he dances swell. Epistle V Ma, I think Ajax is simply mean. He must talk about me to the fellows. Every time I pass, they all yell. " Ajax, Ajax. " What connec- tion is there between me and Ajax. Mr. McVicar is a good boy. He isn ' t naughty like Ajax. Mr. McVicar is going to graduate; but Ajax is going to jail so he can come back. He says he doesn ' t want McVicar in the way. What does he mean by that. If he is going to annoy me, T will get brother to come. He better look out if he does. Harry Donsethewick wants me to be home for the July dance. Now isn ' t he kind.
