l SYN Wig?" "lx NE of the chief requisites of a Nineteenth Cen-
K WH , tury book is a good preface, and it is therefore
with some hesitation that the committee ven-
tures to send forth the " RECORD OF THE CLASS
OF '87," with nothing more formidable than a
prefatory note to introduce it.
The committee for a long time recognized
ff, ff, the fact that there was something' lacking in
f modern English literature, and that there was
a crying need for a work which should nll the deficiency. Excellent as
are the literary contributions of Howells, james, Haggard, Dr. M'Cosh,
Dean Stanley, Matthew Arnold, and Peck, of the Milwaukee Sun, and,
in a somewhat different, though equally important field, the works of
Professors john G. R. lVlcElroy and Albert S. Bolles-admirable as all
these efforts undoubtedly are, still the Mtzkmz Thule of desirability has
not yet been reached. '
Strongly impressed with the necessity of doing away with this
reproach to literature, the committee has determined to give to the world
this RECORD of the unexampled career of an unexampled class. Exactly
how the book is to supply the need on account of which it was created,
will become evident as the reader approaches the southern cover. The
contents of the RECORD will be seen to be at once explanatory and
definitive, narrative and descriptive, argumentative and excitatory, per-
. . . if
suasive and conclusive. The style in which it is written is both pathetic
and amusing, sacred and profane. lf the last-named element should
ever seem to attain to undue proportions, the committee begs the reader
to weigh well the enormous effect of childhood's influences, and to be
lenient with those whose early education was left to the care of such men
as the Reverend Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, D. D.
Many friends-more than could be readily mentioned here-have
helped the committee in its work. Besides the classmates, whose
personalities are but partially concealed in the work which they have
contributed, the Faculty of the University of Pennsylvania is deserving
of especial thanks. To the Faculty the Committee owes what is worth
more than help-inspiration during hours of gloom, and also a never-
failing butt for all gibes and jokes, Mr. Syle having left for parts
unknown, the RECORD is not provided with an index.

EDWARD ALDEN MILLER.
ADIES AND GENTLEMEN: The Class
that greets you to-day, started on its way
four years ago under the best of auspices.
The schools of Philadelphia and vicinity
contributed their choicest specimens of
boyhood, and the largest class ever known
asked admission to the University of
Pennsylvania. Our terms were that all
must be received, or none. The Faculty
wisely accepted the first alternative, and
one hundred and fifty of the finest swore
allegiance to 'S7. There were many in the ranks whose brilliant careers
-our prophet, had he been on hand, could have foretold. He could have
given us a page of George Pepper's future history-the man we made our
first President-who since that day has been loaded with all the honors
that Class and College could bestow-a typical '87 man, active in every
enterprise, and ever foremost. A word of prophecy would have revealed
George Frazier's college deeds, dragged right to the front in the athletic
-Held by his college mates, with a level head through it all-to-day our
honored President. But this is no longer prophecy, but history, and I
am your Historian, not your larophet. It is my duty to give you a sketch,
-called by courtesy a history, of '87.
As you may imagine, the Faculty were decidedly rattled at first by
-the entrance of such a phenomenal class, but Alec..Russell was thoughtful,
.as usual, and by talking pleasantly to the professors, saw their embarrass-
ment wear off. And I will say right here that I despair of doing Russell
justice. The only thing I know of that ever did do him justice, was a
photograph taken a year ago. The picture, which was of the Glee Club,
Russell had touched up in order to bring out, .if possible, his moustache
and whiskers, and the same was then hung in a Chestnut street window.
It seerns that our friend went down regularly every morning to get the
picture right for the day, to see that his face was looking well, and that
no dust disfigured the features. Recently, the boy has had his portrait
transferred to a more permanent brass bas-relzkyf and has secured for
his descendants forever a fiattering picture.
Withiii a few weeks after our triumphal entry, we put our first team
in the field,--nine base-ball players. The team was hastily and care-
lessly gotten together, and was weak in the batting line, Sam Houston,
George Pepper and a few others, hit freely, but, unfortunately, never hit
the ball, and defeat was the result. But, mind you, this was no measure
of '87's athletic powers. ln Sophomore Year, our star arose.
Notwithstanding Russell's kind ofices with they professors, to which
I have referred, it was thought best, at a later day, for the class to have
a duly accredited representative before the Faculty, and jack Forbes
was honored with the mission of mediator. From the date of his
appointment, he became a constant visitor at the meetings of the elders,
and was soon on intimate speaking terms with all. He often recounts,
in his inimitable way, familiar conversations he has had with jackson,
Easton, and the Dean. He has more than once been forced to tell
Easton he was no gentleman, and jackson has been the object of even
harsher remarks. The breach between him and the Secretary of the
Faculty finally became so wide that jack had to request the latter to
strike him from his list of friends, and this was accordingly done.
It was in Freshman Year that occurred the historical struggle be-
tween Clay and jackson. Henry Clay, with his loose construction
principles, was at swords' points with "Old Hickory-Nut," who was a
strict constructionist on the subject of Latin translation. In this difn-
culty a compromise by Clay was natural, but jackson filled the breach.
He agreed to stay at the University if Clay-would leave, and it was
finally so patched up. Clay, however, has since gotten in his compro-
mise, by which a certain damsel will become part owner of all his goods
As a class, we countenanced a good old custom that, strangely
enough, is not often practiced at the University,-the class cut, some-
times called the "straight cut." This institution is one devised by the
student for the professor's benefit. The whole class stay away from
recitation, saving their instructor just so much time. Originality ap-
peared in many forms. Compulsory chapel seemed irksome to some of
the boys, and it occurred to them that any variation in the tiresome
monotony would be in order. Accordingly, it was arranged that various
birds and. animals should be introduced, and before this spirit of novelty
had run its course, one peculiarly original Freshman had secured a big
cat, a tin can, and some turpentine., The three were combined in the
proper order, and with rather unique effect. -
As a class, we contested the last old-fashioned bowl fight. In winter
slush, ankle-deep, we fought the contest to a finish. Al.Whittaker, our
bowlman, was never in any danger, and escaped without a scratch.
At this point we suffered our tirst loss. Early in his career, a class-
mate was taken from us,-Lew. Seal, a man in every sense, a staunch
friend, respected by his instructors and college mates alike g unassuming,
but ever ready to do his part, and ever able to do it well. As Dean
Kendall said, in announcing his death, "He was atrue gentleman."
We had bestowed on him our highest honors, and could ill spare him.
His place stands sadly vacant still.
'87 has always been aching to found new college organizations, and
of one such I must now speak. An energetic actor in our midst tried to
organize the Dramatic Club. Davy Arnram worked hard to collect a
company about him, and partially succeeded, but the public were never
honored by a performance., We have able actors, however, that, without
any drill in the Dramatic Club, have earned their way to the front,
Graham and Ashhurst, for instance, who played as supes in the last
season of the American Opera. A picture ofthe two, by-the-bye, appeared
in the following number of the New York Palzke Gazefie.
After our first vacation, , we returned to find several new faces,
among them, William Romaine Newbold. Billy was a student from the
start, and had no time for the pranks of light-headed collegians. He at
once took up the study of language, or rather languages, and had soon
mapped out special courses in Greek, Latin, German, Hebrew, Aramaic,-
Arabic, Sanscrit, Chaldman, Choctaw and Ethiopic. ln order to cover
the necessary ground, very methodical ways are required, and Billy has
a curious faculty for killing two birds with one stone. In church he
follows the lessons in Hebrew and Greek, and says his prayers from the
Vulgate. He attends a German barber to keep up his Dutch, frequents
pawnbroker shops to catch the "Sheeny" accent, has a french nurse
for the pursuit of that language, and learns Ethiopic from a colored
waiter. Another new face was that of Hon. Oliver Huckel, a Frankford
Prohibition Legislator. With the advent of this poet, Dunn no longer
had to write all our verses. His Muse was already forsaking him.
Huckel soon became a force in the Class-a quiet force, to be sure-but
"those who work best, talk the least." Every rose has its thorn, and
Huckel brought Levin with him. The latter gentleman is best known as
a Pessimist, and a hater of the human race, with two exceptions-himself
and Huckel. In our Sophomore studies we were the first to use Prof.
McElroy's new book fwhich they say has given him the reputation of a
thinkerj, "The Structure of English Prose," an able compilation, with
admirable foot-notes by the author. 4 '
Now, as I have said, came our time in Athletics. Our " base-ball "
cracks did mightily,-Hovey and Latta, Frazier and Seyfert, Moffly
and Cline and the rest-and '87 led the College in this sport, as she has
ever since. The Class boat, rowecl by Houston, Gummey, Dave Pepper,
and Whittaker, and steered by Merc. Biddle, went to the front and won
the Schuylkill race in splendid time. In field sports, the same record
was maintained. Billy Page QI should say Mr. Wm. B. Page, champion
high jumper of Americaj began to show his mettle, and round this chief
star were a bevy of less brilliant, but sturdy and successful contestants
for college honors. Later came football, and '87 won thechampionship
there. Graham, one of the hnest kickers in the countryg Frazier, with-
out a superior as quarter-back, Griscom, a reliable snap-back, Houston,
a capital rusher, and Coates and Wright, cool and successful half-backs,
all championed the old Class, and helped to bring her honor. .In cricket,
too, we had our leaders. And so I might tell of a whole four years' suc-
cesses, would it not tire indulgent listeners.
Our Sophomore Bowl Fight was remarkable for the fact that we
very soon got '88's man into the bowl and carried him off. About this
time 87,8 gunners organized. One of the prominent workers was Frank
Green, who acquired his skill in shooting cows and other farm stock at
john Ashhurst's country place. And now we come to an important
mile-stone. The Muse of song, silent for many years in Penn's hall
was soon to -raise her voice again. The Glee Club Cfor to it I referj was
very modest in its beginnings. john Ashhurst was a member then.
With his wonderfully flexible voice, he would sing second bass or first
tenor, and both to his entire satisfaction. lt was soon found that john
had outlived his usefulness, and some one or other waited on him and
suggested that his voice was changing, and that it needed rest. As far
as I can see, John's voice is still changing for all Glee Club intents or
purposes. But the singers' ranks increased, and, under Spence Brock's
magic baton, a flourishing organization took root. Very few appreciate
what the Club has done in spreading the name and fame of the Univer-
sity. It has given concerts in the fashionable suburbs of Philadelphia,
Camden, Conshohocken, Media, Manayunk, Frankford, and Tacony,
and has been warmly received everywhere. The reception at Tacony
was very striking. A large crowd followed the songsters to the station,
but the latter, by hard running, managed to keep out of reach ofthe
missiles. They luckily escaped any serious personal injuries.
Once again we were called to mourn a classmate snatched away.
john Lynch died in the middle of our second year. We all looked up to-
him and respected him as a loyal classmate and kind friend. Perhaps
his quiet force we never rightly estimated till his loss oppressed us.
Sophomore Year was memorable, if for one reason only. The rapidly
wasting Uizzrfem-z'zjf .flhgazzrze became libelous. One morning fshalll
ever forget the dayl this shocking sentiment appeared in cold black and
white. "Thirteen members of the Class of '87 are fresh"-think of the
impudence-"their names are Ashhurst, Green, Moffly, Houston, Gris-
com, Lee, Audenried, Welsh, George Pepper, Dave Pepper, Baugh,
Smith, and Dolan." Note the F. F. V.'s thus outraged. The scene that
followed I cannot describe. Frank Green suggested that it was proper
to become angry, and the feeling quickly spread. The rage of Ashhurst
and Eddie Welsh was frightful. John told the scurrilous editor that he
was a liar, a scoundrel, a coward, and a rascal. Welsh was for immedi-
ate corporal punishment, and suggested the use of a neighboring horse
trough for baptismal purposes. Fortunately for himself, the rash editor
escaped Eddie Welsh's clutches, and the wrath of the latter cooled.
Those who desire a fuller history of the episode, will find it capitally told
in the "History of a Crime," by Edward Lowber Welsh. The book
was published in England.
Toward the close of second year, we noticed from day to day
the heads of certain classical fiends swelling to unusual size. Some
great idea was evidently struggling to break loose. And before long out
it came. Could the University of Pennsylvania have a Greek Play ? I
need not answer the question. We all know of the recent splendid suc-
cesses. Delighted thousands of Philadelphia's citizens thronging the
Academy of Music, and Pepper, Dunn, Montgomery Sc Co. fwith '87 in
the large rnajorityj, cheered to the echo by the splendid house. The third
performance was no less gratifying,-that, I mean, given in the suburbs
of the city. And this leads me to a statement which lthink I may make
for the Class as a whole. '
But to retrace our stepsg the second year was rounded off with Cre-
mation. Before our day, the ceremonies of the Sophomore Class ran in
one of the deepest of deep ruts,-year in, year out, the street procession
and the silly rites, as cut and dried as the wood on the funeral pyre. Here
was room for improvement, our reform Mayor Smith desired no street
procession, and, like law-abiding citizens, we bowed obedience. Where
before had been tiresome ceremonies viewed by a shouting mob of
rowdies, we conducted a highly respectable funeral, and, before a large
gathering that hlled the great stands in the Athletic grounds, paid our
last respects to the doomed Lounsbury. I
We had reached the third year in our College course, when the
Class split occurred. Murphey, Maison, Fetterolf, and Remont, entered
the Philosophical Department. At the same time, several new corners
entered our ranks. Boyer, a second Dickens' fat boy, shambled into our
midst and, after a stay of a year, shambled out again. He passed the
necessary examinations and entered '88, The Class of '86 saw one of its
members depart, but its loss was our gain. Crawford Dawes Napoleon
Hening became oppressed with the vanity of life, but the vanity more
particularly of a certain fellow '86 man, and determined to enter '37 and
the Wharton School. The Wharton School and '87 returned due thanks.
The cream of the Class now entered the Wharton School-our Botany
Bay, as Professor Barker called it. There was Audenried, who had become
very prominent in Freshman Year as an interpreter of the Constitution
which he had drawn up, and whose knowledge of finance had been
developed by the duties of Class Treasurer. Then came the late Mr.
Smaltz, so called for his way of coming into recitations after the hour had
begun, Brock, who probably entered a School of Finance and Economy,
thinking that he could economize in study, Dolan, who, in his first year,
was sent to France on a government mission g Young, the great champion
of Henry Clay, particularly of his private lifeg Hening, who took a sort
of Pullman Car Course, and is known as a patron of Professor james,
MacLean, a lamb-like boy, who, for all the drilling of the Wharton
School,will never make abull or a bear, Eddie Welsh, Bolles' pet, and Sam.
Houston, who, owing to heart troubles, has not done himself justice the
present year. The collection is interesting, and worth a moment's study.
juniors are supposed to be a lazy, dissipated set. Well, as to lazi-
ness, I can find but few examples of it' in the Class of '87, Professor
Thompsords explanation of this is our strong Scotch-Irish element.
Reath is one of the sad exceptions. I-le started in Freshman Year with
some energy, but soon the disease showed itself. McElroy, of course,
tired him with the rest of us, but it didn't stop there. The man is now
too lazy to live. He has the last year slept through most of Easton's
hours, and, as the benches are rather hard, I have not a particle of doubt
but that, if our college course had extended over another year, Reath
would have swung a hammock in most of the rooms.
We have had some swift gentlemen in the Class, to whom I will refer
in passing. x
One boy on the downward course is Billy Newbold, who seems
powerless to conquer a love of drink, and has invariably his flask of
whisky,,which he swigs at the least excuse. There is another blasted
career to which I must refer. Six years ago it was my pleasure to meet
in the school-room John Ashhurst, 3d, at that time a large, hearty lad,
with fresh complexion and charmingly innocent and winning ways.
It was not long ago that the urchins of the South Street Boulevard, as a
lank, haggard form, passed on the way to College, greeted him with the
terribly realistic epithet of " weeping willow." Yea, john Ashhurst, the
Weeping Willoixf. " How are the mighty fallen."
Billy Smith developed rare qualities about this time. He has made
a specialty of answering at roll-call for the whole Class. At first his
rejieriazke included only a few men, but his constituency rapidly increased.
If Billy had the presence of mind of Charley Cowperthwait, he would be
inimitable. Charley's star arose in Fossil Kirk's room. He answered
for Fred. Graham at roll-call, Fred. being detained away, and, thanks to
the Fossil, so far, so good. But, !eWz'bz'!e dzkfzz, Kirk called on Graham
to recite. " Copper" was on deck. Cool as an eel, he rose, did the Graham
act to perfection, and who was the wiser? The whole thing would prob-
ably have been overlooked, but for accident. In looking over the rolls,
I found a good mark opposite Graham's name, and, my suspicions being
naturally aroused, I determined to solve the mystery.
Class suppers in previous years had been uneventful, but in Junior
year Brig. Young had his famous scrap with a fellow-member of the
Faculty. Needless to say thatBrig. came out ahead, although he didn't
know it till told the next morning.
Young, by-the-bye, is one of those men who make a reputation at a
bound. He suddenly developed a great faculty for managing base-ball
and football teams, and his name became very prominent in sporting
circles. I am authorized to announce that he has already this season
been offered the position of manager of f' a coon " nine, with a flattering
salary. Brig. would snatch at the chance witl.out hesitation, but he dislikes
to give up his positions on the Philadelphia Ifem, Evenzhg Call, .Sunday
Trzuzscryi, Sunday Mercury, Press, New York fkrzzld, Evefzing Sfar,
fnguzker, Norlh Amerzkan, and several other sheets with which he is
Perhaps .you will be interested in hearing of one of Young's
journalistic methods. lf a football game was to be played in Baltimore
or New York, Brig would get all his papers to pay him for the round
trip, an operation that proved, in time, very lucrative. Authorities say
that this practice can be brought under the terms of the Inter-State
In Senior Year, we received one addition to the Class. Already over-
brainy, we welcomed Haworth, an '88 man. Under the circumstances, we
were disposed to be lenient. We had some idea of what it must be to
endure three years of '88, and we hadn't the heart to refuse admission.
After all the labors and triumphs of three active years, we settled down
as a party of hard students. Ned Brown took up the study of Hebrew,
preparatory, he tells me, to teaching that branch in a Theological Semi-
nary, Ashhurst attended three recitations a week instead of two, as before 3
Newbold added several languages to his curriculum of special studies,
Forbes found his place in the Scientific Department, and Worked himself
sick-I am in earnest,-and the Philosophical Seminar drained the Class
of much surplus brain tissue. If any greater proof were needed of our
mental dissipation during the last year, it is found in the fact that several
men took lVlcElroy's voluntary English course. Stradling, our mathe-
matician, has come out in all his glory, and the authorities of the Univer-
sity have recently shown their appreciation by giving him a Fellowship,
on condition that he will leave the country.
Charley Townsend has very rightly won the regard of every member
of the Class. With that enterpiise which has been a distinguishing
feature of '87's career, he secured a detective photographic camera, and
proceeded one spring morning, not long ago, to Overbrook Station, on
the Pennsylvania Railroad, hard by the residence of Aristides, the sage.
The victim left the bosom of his family, and innocently proceeded to the
train., Townsend addressed him courteously, but, verily, with the smile
of morning greeting on his features, jackson was photographed, his
face was snatched by the detective camera, and Charley had solved the
problem that had always baffled. With this triumph of '87 enterprise,
the history of the Class may well be closed.
If your Historian has done his work with any thoroughness, he has
impressed on you one striking characteristic of the Class of '87-her
eriginality. When she started on her course, she found the way one
mass of ruts. Her first act was to level them over, and go forward on
new lines. She has played well her part in every line of duty. In studies,
she has been pre-eminent, and her active workers have made themselves
a power in college undertakings. In base-ball, football, cricket, rowing,
athletics, the world of out-door sport, she has sent her sons to the front.
Not a few organizations owe their origin, or at least their present activity,
to the labors of '87 men.
Yes! we believe our Class has marked an epoch in the history of
good old Penn. May she carry all her life and energy, her vigor and
enterprise, her Wit and Wisdom, her muscle and mental strength, her
common. sense and manliness, her every virtue,-may 'she carry all into
new fields open for new conquests, and prove that her doings within
college walls were but the merest foretaste of future labors in the world.

Whirling and curling around, like nimble-limbedwood-nymphs at leapfrog,
fSeen in the sheen ofthe morn when the rosy-eyed Dawn breaks the deep
Swathing the mountains and glades, and the Night and its blight flee
Airily, fairily twisting, and turning and spurning the heather,
Dancing and prancing grotesque Qfair glimpse of the festals hereafterj,
Filling the radiant air with the sparkle of soft-throated laughter,- '
Music of mystical Aiden, shine of the fine wine of spirits.
Then as the twilight grows lighter, and brighter the crimson sky near its
Heralded comer, the Sun, then the nymphs, like dissolving views, blending,
Sprightly and lightly contending, one sole dying flashing outsending,
Sudden are vanished and gone,-absorbed in the full Hashing sunlight.
.So with their whirling and curling, with curious prancing and dancing,
Flow up your inmost souls, streaming like pennants, enhancing
Wildness and wierdness grotesque, by their rustling and bustling
Flip-Hopping, somerset-dropping, the athletes come, victims out-singling,
Gliding like dead men's souls come the spirits of book-worms pedantic,
Gay, jolly jokers trip forward with every conceivable antic,-
These from the blushing Class-fof sweet innocence, very quintessence lj
Gather up here in mid-air in one mighty majestical presence,
Rushing and pushing together, and knocking and blocking each other,
Vibrating, gyrating round, but fast concentrating together,
Blending and taking on form, yet tossed as a wind-disturbed feather.
But what strange metamorphosis that! form ranging and changing,
Stout, now slender and lean, tall, short, still changing and ranging,
Now tawny with delicate beard, now black, now strawberry-blondish,
Gracefully curling mustache, then a stubby one, simply outlandish,
Eyes blue, brown, black, and hair curly, then straight as a poker,
Expression incarnate inaneness, complexion a delicate ochre.
See! it is shaking again, and taking a compromise semblance,
A moment of neutral tints, dull grays, in a mummy-resemblance,
Only a moment it is, for the figure is dwindling to leanness.
See ! an innocent boy, Efesk-haloed with infinite greenness,
Eschewing the shrine of the pipe, and trusting the lore of professors,
Fearing the wrath of the Soph, and confiding in junior confessors,
Vtforshiping silent the Senior 3-see how the figure is growing,
Reckless, fzozzchzzlafzl airings are being assumed, and a knowing
Blase-ical lookj and an atmosphere smoky, and sporty, and beery.
Ah, you jolly dog Sapfi !-but again does the hgure look weary,
Looks both lazy and dreamy-poetic, and troubadour's songs float about,
And hot lover's sighs oft escape-sweet Lanier gallant, no doubt,-
Changing and ranging again ! oh, transformation most glorious,
Acme of all has evolved, SENIOR, over all else victorious,
Gallant in love and in song, wise with the wisdom of ages,
Very Apollo of lovers, a Solon most sage mid the sages.
And yet 'neath the dignified form, as a sort of sub-stratum, you know,
A sweet little Cupid appears with white wings and arrows and bow.
Majestic in mid-air above us in his gladness and glory and pride .
Stands this composite Man rfthe Class, with his sub-stratum Cupid inside.

ll Q ix - NORTONEE YOUNG.
It " The best of Prophets of the Future is the Past."-Byron.
sf ADIES AND GENTLEMEN 1-is there any
peculiarly prophetic ring in the name of
Brigham Young? If not, why should this
. i,:?5fi1:! 1i if '1... unpleasant task have fallen to 1T1y lot? The
Right Honorable Thomas L. Latta, who graces
this stage to-day with his presence, would
lfllfgnm doubtless explain the phenomenon bylsaying
' ' ' that it was due to fore Lfourj sight. This reason,
however, is too trivial to be further dwelt on.
St. Matthew tells us a prophet is not without honor save in his own
country. Then why should our Executive Committee have been so un-
kind as to make the town of my nativity the scene of my soothsaying ?
Why not rather have chosen jersey? Especially as the Chairman of
our Executive Committee is an inhabitant thereof himself. I am inspired
to believe that my humble efforts would have met with some slight favor
in the sandy soil of the mosquito and the Democrat.
I have performed all the strange, mysterious rites, the incantations
and the orgies: I have gazed upon the stars at dead of night in order to
read the destinies of my classmateslg I have poured out the libations, and,
finding that unavailing, have poured them in the other direction-that is,
back again: Yes, I have done all this, and yet the prophetic muse has
not descended on me,-the mystic spell has not come o'er me. And yet
I will strive to lay bare the future of these men before you.
" Between the acting of a dreadful thing
And the first motion, all theninterim is
Like a phantasma, or a hideous dream :
The Genius and the mortal instruments
I Are then in councilg and the state of man,
Like to alittle kingdom, suffers then
The nature of an insurrection."
j7l!Z'Z65' Cnesar, Act IL, Scene 1.
Such has been my condition since I was elected to this position.
My dream, however, has not been all a hideous dream. I will tell
it you :
'Twas twenty years from now. I was in Asia, preaching the gospel
to the heathen. Ibethought me of a trip to my native land. After a
long voyage I landed in New York. Hearing that an old classmate of
mine, Charles C. Townsend, kept a hotel on Broadway, near Thirtieth
Street, called the M. D. Q. Hotel, I repaired thither in hopes of seeing
him, but, alas ! he was away. I, however, saw his head clerk, Mr. Theo-
dore Reath, another old classmate of mine, and spent a most enjoyable
evening in his company. The next day I repaired to the Pennsylvania.
Railroad Station, and took the train for Philadelphia. The train was the
Limited, but it pulled up at Germantown junction, and a long train from
the Germantown and Chestnut Hill Branch shot by it. Upon asking the-
conductor the cause of this, he replied: "Ohl that's President S. F.
Houston's special." I became interested, and had further conversation
with the conductor, from whom I learned that Sam had been President
ofthe road for some ive years back, that he had a large and prosperous-
family, that Tommy Latta and Al. Whittaker were also prominent offi-
cials in the road, that Germantown and Chestnut Hill had grown into
one, and that their name had been changed to Houstonvilleg that Tommy
Latta's family exceeded in number that of Sam's, but that Al. Whittaker'
was still a batchelor, and spent all his leisure moments in bicycle road-
racing and rowing. On alighting at Broad Street Station, I took a loolc
at the old familiar surroundings, and wondered ifl knew any of the busy
forms moving rapidly about. After a few moments' .careful scrutiny, I
descried a short, stout form, ilashily dressed and with a big cigar in
its mouth. Surely I had seen that man before. I watched him and saw'
him smile at every fair passer-by. Now I remembered him. It was no
less than little Billy Pratt, of little Delaware, the masher, and one-time
authority on Constitutional History. Upon accosting him he told me
he was private detective of the road, but still had plenty of spare time to
" catch on,"
After leaving Billy I went to my hotel. The next day being the
Sabbath, and desiring to attend divine service, I made inquiry as to who'
was the most noted divine in the city, and was told that the Rev. Dr.
William Romaine Newbold enjoyed that reputation. Upon repairing to-
Dr. Newbold's church, I heard a most learned and logical discourse
upon the text, "There was silence in heaven for the space of half ani
hour," from which Dr. Newbold proved that no women ever went there.
One of the leading newspapers in Philadelphia at this time was
Edward A. Miller's 7E'11ze.v, which made a specialty of college clippings,
musical reports and politics. From reading this daily I learned the
following facts: Harry Adams, alias "john Quincyf' was President of
the United States, a position he had attained by embracing labor, ladies
and lager-beer, or, in other words, espousing at once the princi-
ples of the three great parties-the Red Flag, the Universal Suffrage, and
the non-Prohibition. By the greatest political skill and tact he had
momentarily coalesced these three bitterly antagonistic parties and hood-
winked their leaders to his own advantage. Townsend, the leader ofthe
Red Flag, he had made Secretary of the Treasuryg Welsh, the leader of
the Universal Suffrage, he had sent as Ambassador to France-a position,
by the way, I may remark, most acceptable to the gallant Ned, and one
that would afford him ample opportunity of further pursuing his favorite
study, while Ashhurst, the leader of the non-Prohibition, he had made
Collector of Excise and Inspector of Distilleries.
Nor had the political aspirations of the Class of '87 ended here:
Miles Tucker had become the leading politician of the Eighth Ward,-
and lectured weekly on "Taxation, or Why We Pay Too Much for a
Glass of Beer." George W. Pepper, besides being the john Wanama-
ker, and the George W. Childs of the day, was Mayor of Philadelphia.
Nor did his endeavors end here : he wrote books and had his policemen
sell them, he was also engaged in the spoon business, and even occa-
sionally delighted the citizens of Philadelphia with his able impersonation
of Dikaiopolis. His Chief of Police was the gallant and self-sacrificing
Francis Edmund Green, who on many occasions personally undertook
the preservation of the peace and the defence of the weak, the orphan,
and the Widow-generally the latter. Under his stringent rule it would
be needless to tell you that no gambling dens or other iniquitous institu-
tions existed. Even the Natatorium was closed.
Still another. member of this Class acquired political distinction,
namely, Henry Price Ball, who became a State Senator and who gained
reputation through securing the passage of john Wallace Weaver's
Rapid Transit Bill. I may here add that this same john Wallace Weaver
became the President of the Rapid Transit Road in Philadelphia and
amassed a large fortune. Senator Ball, when his legislative duties did
not confine him at Manayunk-which, let me add, had then become the
Capital of Pennsylvania-spent his leisure moments in playing the
second fiddle in the Orchestra at Belmont.
Nor was this all I learned from Miller's Yzzzfzes. In the advertise-
ment columns I saw that Robert Stephen Maison was a -Biological
Lecturer, with a preference for young ladies' seminaries, that john
Ashhurst, the Collector of Excise, in his leisure moments had no objec-
tion to becorne a subject for mesmerical operations at young ladies'
seminaries, that Edgar Pardee Earle had for sale a picture of his be-
loved CPD professor of physics, which he would grant a bonus to any man
for taking away g that Edward " Fullblister " Kenney was a manufacturer
of rubber doll babies and all toys appropriate for "Kidsg" that a Mr.
james Reeves Siddall had just been united in marriage to a Miss Wenzel
after twenty-one years' courtship, and that the marriage had been per-
formed in Camden, as the bride's mother would not grant her consent to
her daughter's marrying any man "in that nasty soap business," that
Smaltz was principal of a Kindergarteng that Adonis had at last disap-
peared, and that Venus was now all the rage, and that George H. Frazier
took' the principal partg that Townsend, after many nights of labor, had
at last become Master Workman of the Knights of Laborg that james
Alan Montgomery-he of the flowing beard and the wild Scandinavian-
colored locks-was one of his ablest orators, and that Cjliver Huckel
supported him with ballads in the newspapersg that Alexander Wilson
Russell, jr., had at last learned to sing, that Theophilus Kuelling had
just written a book on " How do you like the Course P", that Darling
Thomas Drown and Loveflyj Thomas Latta were joint owners of the
Dime Museum, and that their main attractions were Amet, " the Aztec,"
who gave swimming exhibitions daily from 3 to 5 P. M., George " Handle
Me," the thin man, j. j. Hovey, the great pitcher, and " Nellie " Spencer,
the Lady with I-Ialf a Whiskerg and finally, that Forrest Murrell
Anderson, having failed to make a reputation as a political economist,
had gone into the Gentlemen's Furnishing Business and advertised cellu-
loid collars that were warranted to wear three months, ,day and night,
without change. A
I had not been long in Philadelphia before I decided on a visit to
my Alma Mater. Let us view the familiar forms there. The trees that
were just beginning to sprout as we left College, have grown to lofty pro-
portions. But, alas! some of them are laid lowfapparently by a recent
wind. A man approaches, carrying in his hand a tin can. Surely the
form is familiar. Upon being casually addressed as to the severity of
the recent wind, he replies: "Yes, 'twas a rare mathematical wind."
" What mean you ?" say l, " XVhy, has it not extracted a great many
roots ?" Surely we know that man! Yes, it is no other than-George
Flowers Stradling, who has become Professor of Mathematics at the
University. ' But why does he carry a tin can ? George did not use to do
that. Can he have contracted bad habits since we knew him ? Let us
hope not. Let us consider it rather a part of the necessary insignia of
But, let us pass on and spend an hour in some of the old recitation
rooms. Who is that occupying Professor Thompson's chair and talking
so glibly about Protection, Home Rule, Cooperative Kitchens, and Pneu-
matic Dusting? Hark! to the wondrous stories. He is telling the
astonished youths that surround him of how he drinks sulphuric acid for
lemonade. But do these youths believe it all? Ah ! there is one who
asks a stunning question. Surely he cannot answer that. But he does.
And another, and another. Yes, he answers them all. Oh! what a
wondrous imagination! But what is the nature of the discourse? A
moment since it was on the beet sugar production, but now an inquisitive
youth asks, " Professor, has your sister got a son or a daughter P" " I
know not," says he, "whether I be an uncle or an aunt." But who is
this wondrous man ? It is no other than Crawford Dawes Hening.
After Hening graduated he became a lawyer. After ten years' patient
waiting he secured a case. After a careful preparation he delivered a
florid discourse, whereupon the judge advised him to pluck out some of
the feathers from the wings of his imagination, and put them into the
tail of hisjudgment. A This was too much to bear, and Hening became
a professor. I .
We are in the Wharton School rooms. What questions are these we
hear? " Was Henry Clay bow-legged ?" " lf so, how do you account
for it ? " " Did Andrew jackson have false teeth ?" " If so, did they ever
drop out?" " Did Martin Van Buren shave himself or was he the victim
of atonsorial artist?" In what branch of modern education are such
questions to be classed? judging from our own sad experience we would
answer Constitutional History. But is that our own old would-be
Gibbons in the Professor's Chair? No, but the form is familiar. It is
that of Charlie Bernheimer. Well Charlie! We should have thought
your own sad experience would have taught you better sense.
But let us repair to the athletic grounds. A base-ball game is
scheduled for 3.30 P. M. 'Tis now 4 P. M. and yet the game does not
begin. A spectator tells me it is because Crawford Coates, jr., is not
here yet. How like his father twenty. years ago, I thought. Many ladies
are present and all are watching the quick and brilliant work of a player
at second base. He is a pretty, black-haired boy. The sarrie spectator
tells me his name is George Frazier, Jr., and that he is the cause of the
presence of so many of the fair sex. How Well I recall the keen head
of Manager Stoops', when in 1886 he put our own Frazier on the nine as
a drawing card. During the afternoon I learned that the Athletic Asso-
ciation no longer existed. Its oppessive, arbitrary and ignorant measures
had well-nigh ruined all athletics, when the students, helped by the '87
Alumni, took the matter in their own hands and so just and intelligent
was their management that the University of Pennsylvania was the first
Athletic College in the country.
But some familiar forms have not yet passed before us. Where are
H. "Neglige" Smaltz, " Davie" Amrarn, "Jakie" Eyster, " Freddie'
Clark, Spencer Brock, and last, but not least, C. Robert Lee, of Bryn
Mawr, commonly known as the " Sparrow " ?
Let us disclose the future of "Sparrow " Lee,-he with the big coat
and the little blonde moustache. Lee, when at college, was noted for
his sporting proclivities, and they did not forsake him in after life. He
became proprietor of Pastime Park, and owner of the Elite Rink. At
the former he gave many athletic exhibitions, and prominent among his
performers were "Billyl' Page, the champion running high jumper of
America, Al. Cline, the pole vaulter, and H. Neglige Smaltz, the sprinter.
At the Elite Rink he conducted great International-6-days-go-as-you-
please-walking-matches. In these ways Lee amassed a neat fortune, no
small portion of which he devoted to the cultivation of sparrows.
Freddie Clark got married, and I am sorry to say, lived a most unhappy
life with his spouse, as the following little anecdote will show : One day Mr.
Freddie and Mrs. Freddie were quarreling, whereupon Mrs. Freddie made
the unkind remark that she believed if she were to die, he, Mr. Freddie,
would marry the Devil's oldest daughter, to which Mr. Freddie made the
unkinder reply that the law did not permit a man to marry two sisters.
. Spencer Brock became the leader of a glee club that practiced daily
and gave a concert yearly. In addition to this, he taught small boys how
to play football, and reported for Miller's Yimes.
"Davie" Arnram became a Henry Irving, "Duckey" Brunner
,D . . .
ecame his manager and Lee Frankel his bill-poster.
H- "Neglige" Smaltz, being enamoured of Ned Welsh and being
repulsed thereby, became desperate and took to a sporting life to quell
"jakie" Eyster bought out Billy McLean's place on Chestnut Street,
and named it "Eyster's Free and Easy." In the evenings the band
wo ld I ' ' '
u pay and scientific boxing would be the order. The night I
dropped in the main features of the performance was the way Graham
the terror," " dld up" Audenried and Reath, two " sluvvers " of con-
siderable repute. Batchelor and "jakie" also had an interesting Ngo."
Dunn, " the warrior," told of his struggles in Greece and of how he killed
twenty Persians in one small hour. Brintou, Green, Ashhurst, " Chris."
and HJIIYIITIYH Magee, Townsend, "Sparrow" Lee, and some more of
" the boys" dropped in and the evening was a most enjoyable one.
" But sorrow returned with the dawning of morn,
And the voice in my dreaming ear melted away."-CAMPBELL.

all LASS SUPPERS are a good standard by which
i f .lf lx to measure the class' indeed the
, y are a
if "t???12iTfi" sort of thermometer, for it is observable
in I! that the .vpzrzis rise higher and higher every
year. ln Freshman Year a crowd of hungry,
TT scared-looking objects were seen grouped in
1 , a corner of one of Finelli's parlors: hungry
they were, because most of them had .ravezi
7 ff , 1 , up from eating for several days so as to enjoy
the supper that Mr. Finelli was going to give
'--f ' them, and they were all very much taken
aback by the waiters who wore real dress-suits
-just think of it ! Dude YVhittaker was theleadinglight on that occasion,
outshining even the Kohinoor imbedded in his shirt-front. This gentle-
man gave a very interesting and instructive account of how to drink
champagne, and he was exceedingly overcome when john Ashhurst said
that that liquor reminded him very much of ginger ale, "it fizzed so."
Peterson, as Chairman of the Supper Committee made his maiden
speech: the only trouble with it was that -he stopped before he Hnished,
while every one expected nioref Dunn answered to the " Ladies," but
the polite society ofthe table thought he dwelt too much upon the last Cam-
den girl he had mashed. lt can be seen how very young we all were then,
when We state that Frank Green did not throw more than one banana-
peel across the room. But the sober company was bioken up by the
clock striking ten, and The. Reath said he would have to get home
or his father would see about it.
Conviviality increased at Sophomore and junior Suppers, notwith-
standing that the caterers thought we did not want to have anything
to eat. Waiters ran, corks flew, liquor poured, men tumbled, as
never before. The deficiencies in the speeches were eked out with
the hilarity of the company, which laughed indifferently whether
R. P. Russell or Sam. Houston was telling a joke. john Ashhurst
was given the permanent post of answering to the Ladies, as just at
that time he was having numerous love affairs. We are sorry to say that
john has become cynical of late and quotes from Solomon in respect to
women. Billy Audenried smoked one cigarette at the Sophomore Supper,
which so exhilarated him that he favored the company with several
extracts from Cushing's Manual of Parliamentary Law.
But the pleasantest of suppers was that of Senior Year. We were all
old friends after our four years of acquaintance, and there was a tinge of
sadness when we thought that this was our last supper together in College:
and so we made the best of it. Wit as well as wine was in abundance,
and Professors McElroy and Fullerton took a lively share in the forrner,
though the laws of conviviality forbid us mentioning their participation
in the latter. Finelli outdid himself in the supper line, and Fred Graham,
they Chairman of the Supper Committee, compelled every one to acknowl-
edge that it was the best supper ever set on a table. A. W. Russell
demurred a little to this, which Fred resented as a personal insult, but
finally made it up sweetly by giving Russell a brotherly kiss. Every
one who attended this supper will always think of it with pleasant recol-
lections, and wish that he might once more fill the festive cup and crack
the merry jibe in as good company as he had with him on that occasion,
THE NEW MOTHER GOOSE.'

BY Ouven Hucxex..
Alma Mater, dear old Alma ! how we love your kindly face,-
Full of beauty, full of grandeur, full of sweet majestic grace:
From your eyes there shines the glory of the brightness of the cpast,
And your smile is full of triumphs for the sons you've nourishe last.
A hundred and thirty summers sit them lightly on your brow,-
Never sweeter, fairer, younger were you ever thanjurt now.
Crowns of olive we are bringing, and we'll twine them with our love,
And bind them with our loyal hearts your radiant brow aboveg
lt's the tribute of our manhood, it's no garland of mere leaves,-
lt's the fruitage of the future, it's the wealth of garnered sheaves :
For your presence will inspire us, and the glories that we win
Shall crown your brow with gladness and reioice your heart within.
Some laugh at you, and scoff me, and say you have no heart
And, like soulless corporations, are but name,-no other part,-
But the allegation 's false and the allegator knows it,-
For a great big heart you have and your lively vigor shows it.
Your heart and soul 's the heart and soul of every loyal son,
And in your all-embracing breast they're blended into one.
You're a glorious good "old lady," and no vixen and no prude,
You want us at this festive board to be in festive moody
And you'll take it not unkindly if we treat you jocund-wise,
And do you up in jolly style as seen byjolly eyes:
For remember, but a few days more your apron-strings will bind us,
Then scatter we so wide and free, not even " Pomp" could Gnd us.
W'e've sung you as our " Mother-Hen, " but that the question begs,
You are our royal llfatker Goose, that lays the golden eggsg
Your hatching-time is once a year,-your cackle, grand orationsg
Your nest, of flowers and pretty girls and mothers' exultations:
But of all the eggs. you've ever laid, since Hrst endowed of Heaven,
None are so rich and rare and fine as the batch of Ezglziy-Swan.
There's Graham, football's golden egg, with mighty length of kick,
And Hovey, base-lJall's golden egg, a pitcher lightning-quick,
And Pepper, full of Attic salt, the Greekest of the Greeks,
And Newbold, egg of golden tongues, who even Choctaw speaks,
Seguin, the golden-worded wit, with jokelets weird and sly,
And Smaltz, who loves a golden girl, and swears he'll win or die.
There's Page, who broke the record of all jumpers at one bound,
And Harris, champion bicycler, of all the country round,
And Brock, the pride and only hope of the entire Wharton School,
And Brigham Young, thejournalist, who works the "Herald" pool,
Haworth, the substratum-ist, and Ashhurst, ,lackson's pet,
And Townsend, fellow hale, well-met,-the jolliest fellow yet.
Montgomery, golden in his wealth of ancient saws and things,
And Neddy Dunn, who writes,for " Life" and sings the charms of Springs,
And Miller, golden in pure gall, yet pluclcy, witty, strong,
And Neddy Brown, the golden-voiced, the "Chrysostom" of song,
Then Whittaker, the mighty-limbed, who plows the Schuylkill's wave,
And Amram, funniest man of all-" Shalom alachem, Dave! "
Here's golden eggs in plenty, why not the Golden Age?-
The time the world is waiting, the day-dream of the sage,
But aged eggs ain't pleasant, that simile won't hold,
For the perfume's H2 S when hen-fruit gets too old.
So though this figure fails the fact is outside contradictions,-
XVe can make this age a Golden Age if true to our convictions!
The golden eggs of Eighty-Seven, after four years' incubation,
Should hatch a brood to scratch' the good from out the whole creation.
No egg must be co1zd'zZz'a1zed-bad, but all must turn out well,
And not a single bird bejluclzed before he breaks the shell,
Gadgnznt that all My golden drawn: ffgaldfn .Ezfghfy-Sezlevz
Ilflay turn out' real and more flirm good, and make this world zz flezwen !

The Bowl Fight..
f "'. HE good old times when Greek met Greek,
i Soph met Fresh, and McBride met
1K1 Hximq glyu 999, are-but dreams of the happy
fgjffghm ' pastg the breed has degenerated.
v mrtswauuiw In eighty-five the Faculty appointed
, Dr. White as the Director of Public
L Cfggggsg l Safetyg so that while we were fight-
i 'wwf 1' f ,'9r.u'T:W ih '883 he could bring his skill in
' thi manly art to play in the noses
v' I of the police. Itwas the beginning-

.35 f--1 itil ., , ,
igg.:-,'E with no constabulary cramums or
ire-plugs to crack? '88 made it so
easy for us that in a few minutes
the fight was all over. The next year saw an amusing spectacle on the
Athletic Grounds. The children accompanied by their nurses and
mammas, and in their Sunday suits, assembled in the college hall and
followed Mr. Powel's leading strings to the scene of the contest. Then
a difficulty aroseg they were afraid of spoiling their kilts on the muddy
ground. At this juncture the word "go " was given,-there was a chorus
of shrill treble shrieks, and the ight had commenced. One man who
had actually been seen to push an antagonist was promptly banished from
the grounds, so that the deadly strife might proceed in regulation orderly
style. After fifteen minutes of this murderous struggle it was observed
that poor Mr. Powel had fainted at the sight of some freshly-tapped
"Claret," Both sides immediately separated and forgot their anger in
sympathy for the prostrate victim. When he had been borne away on
six stalwart shoulders, a mass-meeting was held at which it was decided
that the fight should be awarded for "scientific points." As this decision
was reached, there came a messenger from Otto's reporting that Mr.
Powel was able to sit up and take nourishment. Loud shouts of ap-
plause greeted this announcernent, and after each good little boy had
been presented with a piece of the bowl-man's trousers as a souvenir,
the children all went home to boast of their famous battle.
This year, arrangements were made for a conflict even more sangui-
nary than the last, but the death-blow to bowl fights was given by the
intervention of the S. P, C. Ca

. if HE night of june iith, 1885, a night of vengeance
and Egyptian darkness, of high slaughter and
pretty girls dimly glinted on by swinging
lanterns, of weird ceremonies and applauding
professors, of artistic and unique effects and no
flgl'1tS,--77ZZ5'lZ6Z'Z'6 rizkfu ! The University Athletic
Grounds is transformed into an ancient British
glade and grove, the thousand and more spec-
tators are carried back some eleven hundred
years and a realistic scene of Druidical sacrifice
is enacted. The victim is T. R. Lounsbury,
author of the text-book on the "English
Language," which, especially in its Anglo-
Saxon and early English inflectional courses
was obnoxious and unendurable. If it had not
been for the inimitable jokelets with which
"Little Mac" interlarded his teaching with
the book, we never could have lived out the course. As it was, the
class was unanimous in the victim to be pounced on. But the ceremonies
deserve special description. Witli the exception of the dim motley-
colored lights from the Chinese lanterns in the grand stand, where the
assemblage is all gathered, the place is in total darkness. At half-past
eight the notes of a funeral march are heard in the distance, a few
minutes later, the procession enters the eastern gate, and slowly marches
towards the scene of death. The line is headed by the Arch-Druid,
arrayed in a flowing robe of white, on his breast a golden crescent sur-
rounded by a serpent, on each shoulder a sprig of mistletoe, around his
head a chaplet of oak leaves, while a long white beard, a flaming Ham-
beau and a huge glittering knife, give a venerable and severe aspect.
Four other brother-Druids, carrying flambeaus, follow in similar garb, two
of them guarding the prisoner, who is dressed in a black gown orna-
mented with grotesque Hgures-bats, serpents, skulls and cross-bones in
red and white. Then two Ovades, novitiate Druids, dressed in light
green g the Band of the Republic wailing mournful music : the company
of fourteen Bards with blue capes and oak-leaf chapletsg then the class,
two by two, in cap and gown. The slow' march, the few blazing torches,
the funeral music, and the intense blackness around, give a fantastic
-effect and evoke loud applause. On arrival at the Sacred Circle, in the
centre of which is a huge pyre, the ceremonies begin. First comes a
harangue by the class " Ch'iefe" C. Adamsj, a speech full of witti-
cisms and telling points. Then a "Chaunt" most nobly sung by the
" companie of Bards "-the glee club in disguise. The first Ovade QC.
C. Townsendj, next gives a humorous and ingenious "Lyfe-Tale of
Lounsbury," and the company of bands sing a " Waylef' The " tother
'Ovade " QN. B. Youngj, makes the " Charge gaynst Lounsburieu-a
'denunciation filled with keen satire and bitter invective, sternly and
mugestically delivered. The " Playere Mennen play a " Dyrgef' Louns-
bury QD. W. Amramj, makes a witty defense, the Arch-Druid LG. W. Pep-
perj, in stentorian tones condemns him, the class yells its curse against
him, and while the bards are giving their "Death Syngenf' the great
slaughter begins. Three times the Druid priests lead their prisoner
round the pyre, then tie him with thongs, and deftly substituting an exact
dummy counterpart of the prisoner, lift him on the pyre. Then, to slow
music and amidst the blaze of blue and red lights, and the flashing of
lycopodium torches, the Arch-Druid advances to the pyre, stabs the
quivering Csaw-dustj wretch, mutters seven distinct curses in Sanscrit,
with huge blade rips out the bloody heart,-rather abnormally large to
be sure, but really dripping with gore,-and Lounsbury the accused is
dead. Witli "loude shouts of triomphef' the torches are applied. In
an instant the pyre is all ablaze, the great tongues of flame shoot up ten
feet high, and light the whole scene magnificently. The band breaks
forth in rousing and exultant bursts of music, the priests fling down their
torches, and joining hands with the black-gowned class, form a circle
around the blazing pyre, and dance and yell in mighty glee. The whole
class sings two or three incongruous but rousing college songs, and cap-
ping all with the thundering University and Class yells, the mystic cere-
monies of the Cremation are ended. .
The committee in charge of the Cremation were Spencer Brock
fchairmanl, E. A. Miller, Oliver Huckel, 1. S. Elverson, G. H. Frazier
and T. H. Latta. The programme was designed and drawn by Huckel.
A - '87 in the Dance.
::, QEQMNYONE accustomed to the University in its every-day
" garb would have been severely startled
had he approached that massive pile on
the evening of February the fifth, Anno
Domini eighteen hundred and eighty-six.
' It was the night of '87's Junior Ball, and
the dear old place was " all dressed up in
its store clothes." Lights were twinkling
' from the windows, great lanterns along
ez iii the driveway sent their rays dancing over
' the sparkling snow, while hundreds of
- :jg carriages rolled crunching over the pure
I white carpet. Swarms of young girls
kept scrambling out and skipping up
the steps, the clear treble of their fresh young voices making a delicious
harmony with the rustling bass of their skirts. On, on, up the steps,
through the corridor, into the Dean's sanctum, whence, under the skillful
hands of the sable attendants they emerged, like so many gay butterflies
from their dull chrysales. Then upstairs again, in a little knot, each one
struggling for last place, on to the chapel door, where in the midst of a
chorus of " Isn't this mine ? " or a disappointed " Well, the next, then,"
they are swept off into the general maze. The whole chapel wears a
holiday aspect, from the candelabra, with their graceful festoons of smilax
surmounting the bank of ferns and flowering plants, to the smiling faces
in the old portraits-one of which QOur Lady of the Chapelj was on
several occasions actually seen to wink. Concealed behindt another
screen of flowers, the musicians ravished the ear, as the merry hop or
the stately walk of " The Clock " 'gave place to the delicate grace of
" My Queen." The young girls, with flushed happy faces and bright new
frocks, the dignified mammas watching with fond pride the first flight of
their fiedglings, the crowds of men surging far out into the floor in their
eagerness to steal the last half of a waltz with some favorite belle-all
conspired to make the ball a success. The number of girls and men
from the older set is particularly noticeable, and the Baby Ball begins to
wear a "real grown-up" look. As the ball-room becomes heated we
promenade through the great cool hall, or rest a moment to decipher the
strange carvings on the old arm-chairs. At last we succumb to the
temptation to enter one of those dimly-lighted rooms, and are just on
the threshhold when we are startled by a silvery voice murmuring some-
thing about her hand looking small in a glove because it would squeeze
up well. Courtesy forbids our witnessing the operation, and we move
on, speculating on the advantages of co-education. This sandwiching ot
dance and promenade, with tiirtations in secluded nooks as 1' muff
pz'gua1zfe" stops only for a few minutes in favor of the more substantial,
if less sweet, dainties of the supper. This over, in one continuous round
of pleasure does the merry ball hold high revel, till long after the chil-
dren's accustomed bed-time. But all good things must come to an end,
and by two o'clock the last carriage had rolled away, leaving the gloom
and silence of night to settle over the now deserted Otto's.
QN. B.-The reader will confer a favor on the author by supplying
between every tive lines the expressions, " An elegant collation Was
served," and " The dreamy strains of the waltz Hoated to our ears Nj.
It has been the popular belief for the past three years that only the
young blossoms, with a small sprinkling of " buds," would endure the
inconvenience of a ball in West Philadelphia, hence the present custom
of setting apart the "junior " for the youngsters, and for the benent of
the full-blown buds, giving the Senior ball in town. Agreeably to this
idea, '87 gave her " Ivy-" on April the eleventh in the Annex of the Union
League. The crowds of dancers and the great financial success proved
the wisdom of the policy g and the committee deserved the hearty thanks
of the Class. The Hoor soon became a delight tothe disciples of Terpsi-
chore. The walls were decorated by tasteful masses of flowers, and the
trophies of our victorious teams, while the magnified badges of the
Fraternities lent a betwitching air of mystery to the fam' eazsmzble. The
more prosaic phase of the ball was equally well worthy of mention.
With such a lavish hand had the supper been prepared, that a menu was
presented far beyond comparison with any previous occasion. Even
the most careless observer must have been struck with the improvement
since last year in our conversational style, we are no longer boys, we
are men of the world. On all sides such languidly-uttered expressions as
" A deuced handsome creature," or " A fine woman, be grid," reveal the
full grown Hsassiety " man. Yes. '87's ladies' men are well represented
to-night, there, beside that Huffy-haired blonde, stands our soft-voiced
dude, who thinks it "perfectly delicious " to study palmistry. Who is
that merry-looking pair at the window ? Oh! that tall Gipsy beauty is
our rustic belle, and the man is our gibing countryman from jacksonville.
No, don't look at that big fellow in the corner 3 he's a fine oar and " all
that sort of thing, don't you know," but a "real horrid" thing is laid at
his door. As a proof of our popularity among the ladies, l might point
you to our engaged men, with their ill-concealed pride. We have four
of these happy men, while a fifth is at present exhibiting aggravated
symptoms of the same complaint. Perhaps, with the idea of pleasing
these favored few, the fine large balcony has been thrown open as a
relief to the April warmth of the ball-room. Those who woo the cool
breezes of this charming spot are struck dumb with amazement at the
sitting arrangements. That guileful, absent-minded Chauncey, whose
special province it was to attend to this feature, was so deep in the thoughts
of lg! night's lack-pot, and the immense superiority of " three-of-a-kind "
over 'two pairs, that he has had all the chairs spliced in " trips." Some
of the guests, who were too cold to appreciate the sociability of these
trios of seats, or who were shocked at the depravity that prompted the
device, left the vulgar herd and wandered out on the roof to study the
stars. We unlucky dogs who elected- astronomy this year can well
understand the reason that the happy couples became so entirely absorbed
as to be oblivious to all their surroundings, and why they did not return
until the caterer had dashed frantically through the whole house, shrieking
out that the chimneys wouldn't draw. But let not my unruly pen dwell
any longer on these spicy details,-we are not writing for Town Topics.
Could dear old Elements-of-morality Porter and his Noah's ark of ethical
truths have been present, how charmed he must have been. With what
assiduous care was his "Law of Love" obeyed, and in what endless
ways did the merry-makers prosecute their search after his " Highest
Pleasure." Alas! the evening has long since fled before the approach
of the " sma wee hours," which are no longer " sma and wee " 5 the last
waltz is hushed in silence, the last tired fiddler has gone his way, the last
fond word has been whispered behind the balcony shutter, and nothing
remains but the sweet remembrance of '87's " Ivy," clinging to our hearts

'87 were reading Aristophanes' " Aclzar-
nzkmsf' and one morning several of the class
gathered around Professor Easton, and asked
him why the University should not produce
a Greek Play, and especially a comedy like
the one we were reading. The little man was astounded for the
moment, but at last said that he would take a month to consider the
matter. He was true to his word, and in the time fixed assented to the
proposition. Then the labor began. Most outsiders looked upon us, at
nrst, with cold sympathy, and thought it was a farce, and not a comedy,
we had in mind. In fact, none of us, at the time, knew of what magni-
tude the work would be. and it was very good that it was so.
One of the preliminaries was to choose the playg it was first of all
decided to have a comedy, as a Greek tragedy had already been pre-
sented in this country 3 then the Achafffzzkzfzs was taken, for, although it is
one of the least-known of Aristophanes' plays, there is none that has
greater action and brilliancy, and, moreover, we were well acquainted with
it, from having read it in class. lt was about this time that Professor
Easton began amassing those innumerable note-books, to which to refer
for any conceivable subject connected with the play : thus, one book had
solely to do with the color of Greek mustaches, and another with the
approved size of calves, biceps muscles, and such anatomical properties.
During the summer, Dr. Clarke composed the music of the Afhar-
mkms, and we are unable sufficiently to thank him for the contribution
his composition made to the success of the Play. Early in the fall, the
XX A X The Greek Play.
LASSICS at the University never received a
Q47 greater boom than that given by the recent
"' Greek Play, and '87 can take to itself the
'QL greatest credit of all the classes, for its share
9- I in the matter. lt was in the spring of 1885
H that the idea of the production of a Greek
X Play was given birth. The Greek section of
actors were chosen, and then the rehearsals began 3 and oh, Heracles ! what
rekearsals they were. Cf all things bad, they were the worst, and we can-
not see how order was ever gotten out ofthe chaos. There was the mob
of the chorus, some of whom thought they were there to look pretty,
and did not, deign to sing, while the discord among those who did
sing, must surely have affected Dr. Clarke's mind. The actors as a rule
either did not know anything and had to be taught everything, or else
thought they knew everything and would not learn anything. Every-
where Dr. Easton rushed about, with a staff in his hand and a fur
cap on his head, madly calling out, "Further on," when things went
slowly. But as the time of the production of the play came nearer and
nearer, order and regularity were obtained, and rehearsals followed each
other like clock-work. '
The rest of the Faculty were suspicious of the whole business. The
Wharton School claimed that the Greek Play would not have any influ-
ence on the price of wheat in the West. Professor jackson made grim
remarks when terrible noises issued from the throats of the chorus, in
the room immediately over his own, while Professor McElroy was in
great trepidation throughout, lest by any word or action of his he should
injure the Greek Play, but, fortunately, no such catastrophe occurred.
Remarkable figures were seen flitting about the third story in the
neighborhood of Dr. Easton's room,-remarkable for both style and
scantiness of dress. Men, women, and even ckzldren were there, most of
them with nothing more than a sheet on flinglish for. ckzlwzj. We all
braced up,however, when the date of the performance grew so near that
we could easily count the intervening days. At last came the Dress
Rehearsal, at the Academy of Music 3 this broke the ice for the cast, and
we felt ready for the thousands of the next evening's audience. No one
in the cast will ever forget that evening, when it saw before itself a host
of barbarians and Philistines, whom it had to initiate into the beauties of
the Greek life and language. However, the audience very often seemed
to comprehend the spirit, of the play, although they laughed at places
which were not at all funny, and were awfully solemn at the most comi-
cal of the topical songs and personal allusions that Aristophanes throws
in to enliven things. 4The representations were a great success, and
scored many points for the University, it was shown that Greek at our
institution was quite a living language. Our season terminated with a
handsome reception given by the University Club. But we were not yet
through with our labors. The Gothamites felt an ardent' longing to
receive a touch of Greek civilization, and when they sent their flattering
invitation that we should make a tour of the provinces, we accepted.
And so the rehearsals began again in the fallg they went very slowly at
first, and this immensely worried Dr. Easton. But we were repaid for
-our trouble by the success achieved in New York. Vrfe found ourselves
'before a brilliant and critical house-college professors and literary
people being very numerous-but they greeted us with hearty and appre-
ciative applause, and we felt a throb of triumph when the final notes of
the music were drowned in the cheers raised throughout the house by the
men of the different Colleges. After the play, the cast was most hos-
pitably entertained by the Century Club, where we were presented to the
.culchafl of the country. We were 'again feted by the Penn Club of
Philadelphia, and when all was over, not a few heaved a sigh of regret
thatthe pleasant days of the Greek Play were only a memory of the past.
Omitting the good that was gained by the University and the actors, pro-
fessionally, we all felt that we had learned to know each other better, and
to feel a greater love for old Penn, for whom we had done good work.

Z BVIOUSLY, as Professor Barker would say, the
Z time-honored celebration of February 22d, at
'I' J? 1 . . r .
-4 the University, has undergone a startling meta-
morphosis within the last year. The custom had
, l never fallen into innocuous desuetude, but care-
-' V f 5 V' less management on the part of the authorities,
9,5275 522- jig f and a monotonous similarity in style and pro-
'Swfe X, gramme, year after year, usually drew together
i ,:,, ,, , ,, ' U A
5. ' such a rambling audience in the College Chapel
69 "ill "" ' ' as would have given the Father of his Country
V a pain to gaze upon. A desultory oration by the
C' I Hrst-honor man of the'Arts, and the reading of
the whole of Washington's Farewell Address by the Hrst-honor man of
the Science-whether these gentlemen were good or poor speakers-
constituted the annual battery, with the good-natured Dean as umpire.
The Class of '87 agitated matters through T he Pennsylwznzlzn, secured
after a conference with the authorities a committiee from the different
Classes to take charge of the celebration, and infused new life into
matters. The great day came, and with it the people. Instead of the
usual handful of auditors, the chapel was packed andsthronged-trustees,
professors, parents, friends, and a generous sprinkling of pretty girls
among students from all departments. The programme was as follows:
Overture-" Ein WJZl!fEZffEZ6hE7Z,,i Wiegandg University Orchestra.

Selections from Washz?zgf0n's Farewell Address ,' Oliver Huckel, '87.

The Committee of Arrangements, Messrs. Ashbrook, '87, Richards,
'88, jefferys, '89, and Hart, '90, with President Frazier, '87, deserve
much praise for their earnest work. Provost Pepper was unusually feli-
citous, and taffied everybody-from himself all the way down to Pomp-
putting in especial words of praise for Athletics and The Pennsylva-
nzkm. The University Orchestra made its debut on this occasion, and
won from the first enthusiastic applause. The soprano voices that were
heard with the Glee Club in the " National Anthem," were not Fresh-
man voices, as many supposed, but merely soft-voiced boys-sub-Fresh-
men, perhaps,-that Spence Brock had smuggled in from his choir at
St. Andrew's-in-the-Field. The occasion was in every way abig success.

'87's Students, and their Works of
. ' - 5' ", ' 's
HE class of '87 showed the Faculty at a very early
,I date that the upward limit of the new marking
system was going to be put to a severe strain, and
that work marked "Pe1y2'cZ" was to be the rule
my -.u l ifgr rather than the " exception." As the announce-
.' Q, ' ment of results-for the first term of Freshman
E f Year approached, some doubt was expressed
Q 'S M as to whether it would be possible to have
the Bowl Fight upon the old conditions, for
' " as it'seemed likely that no one would get
less than a second-honor there was no prospect of such a thing as
a "lowest third-honor man" being found. Unwilling to cause the
abolition of an old custom, the class drew lots, and the man selected
-Alzke Dean Whz'Zfa!aere-consented to do a little less than he could
have done 3 and so the Hght came off.
The regular University curriculum began to be too small for '87
about the beginning of Sophomore Year, at which time the class was
reinforced by the arrival of William Romance Newbold, Olivette
Huckel and Julius Seizer Levin. The first of these gentlemen was
small in stature, and gave so little promise of becoming an athlete that
Montgomery and Pepper fwho at that time were at the top of the classj
began rather to look down upon him. However, it was but a short time
before it began to be remarked that Newbold never spoke in words of
less than four syllables, that he was not afraid of Professor jackson, and
it was evenyrumored that he had doubts as to the authenticity of the
Scriptures-holding that the Psalms were not written by David, but by
another man of the same name. But that for which he was chiefly
remarkable was the introduction of the "'Voluntary Class." Every
morning he would lay before a group of astonished honor-men a scheme
for some extra course, and as William did not possess a formidable
appearance, the honor-men thought they could stand it if he could, and
agreed to put themselves on record. But here a difficulty arose. Mont-
gomery was "orthodox" and insisted on saying that he would join
'Pet Prof. Jackson's Chapel announcement.
"D, V." This being old-fashioned, William argued that it was there-
fore right to be heterodox, and refused to make use of the formula.
Pepper, however, suggested that it might mean "the Dean being wil-
ling" so that each individual could interpret for himself. This was
mutually satisfactory. William said it coincided with his ideas upon the
subject of " private judgment," and Montgomery merely ejaculated
" O. K."-which, besides its usual significance, was understood as refer-
ring directly to Oizk Kendall.
So the class was formed. It was a Greek class and was conducted
by Dr. Easton. There was some difficulty at first in finding an author
whom Newbold did not know by heart, but at length the Doctor sug-
gested "Rodotuth" and, there being no opposition, this author was
accordingly selected. It turned out afterwards that William had in
reality read everything Herodotus ever wrote, but did not recognize the
name as Dr. Easton pronounced it.
Then a Hebrew class was formed. This class had among its mem-
bers, in addition to those already mentioned, such men as Stradling,
Dunn, Miller, Huckel and Salter. Newbold was the professor, and he
used the book of Genesis as a text-bookg remarking that although the
substance of the book had been exploded, still it was written in moder-
ately good Hebrew, and would answer every purpose. Only one event
happened which seemed to threaten disaster. Ned Miller, who up to
that time, was noted for his soft and somewhat high-pitched voice, one
day attempted to pronounce one of the gutterals without due preparation.
The result was that he got his palate and tonsils hopelessly tangled, and
nearly choked to death. It is, however, an ill wind that blows nobody
good, and since that time Ned has been singing bass in the University
The next addition to the course was a class in Sanscrit. Newbold
spells the name of this tongue with a curious system of dots and a
juxtaposition of consonants which renders it perfectly unpronounceableg
but "typographical facilities being under ordinary circumstances lim-
ited"-we quote Newbold's own words-"lt is a species of lex non
scrzjifcz to dispense with scholarly accuracy in representing the orthog-
raphy of the name, for although there is no doubt that the education of
the masses is making it possible to obtain a better class of work from
the printers and publishers of books-still there is as yet but small prep-
aration for meeting the exigencies of philological eruditionf' If this
means that the printer hasn't got the right type, we agree with the
sentiment perfectly. , A
Then Newbold organized an Arabic class, under Professor Jastrow's
tuition. William himself and Davy Amram were the principal lights-
lzead-lights, so to speak-of this course. Even Montgomery had given
up all attempts to keep abreast of the age, and was only recalled from
utter despondency by the formation of a class in that more intelligible
It would take volumes to tell of the progress made in the decipher-
ment of Cuneiform Inscriptions, and in the untangling of knotty prob-
lems in Assyrian-suffice it to point to the long list of ,honor-men for
the four years as aproofofwhat debatable ground the first place in, '87 is.

f 'V ROBABLY you will have read elsewhere in this
Z gl volume of the Class of '87. From Otto'S

,off L I
-and-W 4 Athletiogrounds' from Pluto's dark lair
,jf -to the aerial halls of the Philornathean
Society fListen, O Freshman. Established
F f'i' "'i' ' " 1813 lj the active spirits of '87 have left
their markg and it is of the lofty eyrie
of Philo that' we now will discourse. Philo is reached by four
flights of stairs. Candidates for membership are said to have high
aspirations. '87 entered Philo in '84, and since then has, of course, con-
trolled the purse, the sword, and the gavel, also the goat. Let us
look into the reviewer's book, and cull out some ofthe gems of thought
which have once sparkled under the flickering gas-light in the hall of
the " game chicken " fsee badge of Philoj.
It is 8 P. M. The moderator gravely takes the chair. The Censores
Morum fthis is Latinj with equal gravity salute the moderator and take
their station by his side, The exercises begin after the goat has had kzlv
exercise with the Freshman novice. The regular literary exercises
begin with the customary oration against the position of the classics in
modern education. jackson and the classics tribe are thoroughly rated,
and then the orator invokes Zeus to ship them down to that winter resort
to which Daniel QM. DJ is condemned, in the song of the valiant under-
graduate Qwhen Daniel is not aboutj. Applause from Amram. Amet
Qaccent on the " et"j then rises and discourses on the 4' effect of freckles
on the human system! His tone is angelic and pure. We always
derive much benefit from Mr. Amet's remarks. Applause from Amram.
Adams then makes his famous speech on the "cable cars." He is
so much taken up with this subject that his friends prophecy that the
class of ,QI will ride to college every morning under the guardianship of
Adams 5 a brilliant future lies before him. Applause from Amram.
The debate is, " Resolved, that morality is separable from religion."
Mr. Seguin for the affirmative. The afirmative begins, as usual,
with a wave of the hand, then, hitching up his trousers, a la McElroy,
it wacles into -that subject which must be to it a terra incognita fthis is
more Latinj, namely, morality. Applause from Amram. A pair of
spectacles leading a man, now take the stand on the other side. This
combination is known as Haworth. Applause from Amram.
Then Amram comes to time with the quotation from the Scriptures,
to the effect that his blood was as blue as that of Queen Victoria of Wm.
B. Smith, for his ancestor Egures in the 6th chapter of Exodus. Then
some one reads a' review-a mass of antiquated specimens of pre-
adamite buffoonery. It usually begins, " Gentlemen and Mr. Amet."
When the literary exercises are over, everybody rises and begins to
harass the moderatorf Adams reaches to his boot for his bowie, and
order is restored. Then the question is gravely discussed whether we
ought to tolerate the new marking system, and a motion is made to ask
for jackson's resignation. The society adjourns at 10.30 P. M. so that
the members may all be home early and tucked away in their little beds.
For the streets are clark, and the muckers numerous.
One of the rare relics in Philo is a poem byjohn G. etc., McElroy, writ-
ten when a member, and entitled an " Ode to Jacksons Metrical Feet.'
It is a gem, and Freshmen may see it under glass g they will then under-
stand why Jackson always calls McElroy the "professor of rhetoric,
etc.," and why Mac always alludes to Jack as "the department of Latin,'
or " the other side of the building." Many other strange things may be
seen there. '82's bowl Qthat was a Hghtjg the Rosetta Stone, a photo-
graph of Thompson with whiskers, one of McElroy at the age of 21, and
others too numerous to mention.-
Lower classmen may see all these nice things by paying 35.00 initi-
ation fee, and 31.50 per term. Address

'87 in the Scientific Society.
E'.T'i ,fli HE great lights of the Scientific Soci-
wt. ety during Freshman and Sophomore
lg .531 Years were Messrs. Cheyney, Pugh,
and Rondinella. These gentlemen,
.gmail being upper classmen, were looked
' I upon with great awe by the youths
"Cm " from, '87. They were considered to
' l 1 be different from other meh, because
I 'their names had appeared in print as
im the Society's Lecture Committee.
The chief difference between Cheyney, Pugh, and Rondinella and ordin-
ary mortals really was that Cheyney, Pugh, and Rondinella attended the
lectures and the ordinary mortals did notg however, we did not know
this at the time. But even the glory of these great men was eclipsed
when '87 began to illumine the scientific world. The memories of
Cheyney, Pugh, and Rondinella, of Newton, LeVerr1er, and LaPlace,
all grew dim and hazy when such men as Engle, Keeley, and Sketch
Elverson joined the Scientific Society. The dimness and haziness was
attributed by some unkind humorists to the state of the mental atmos-
phere of the new members, but this, of course, was only a joke.
It is said to have been a most interesting sight on the Friday even-
ings when an essay by Keeley was announced to see the little group of
-excited members which gathered around the door of the SoQiety's hall.
His favorite subject was "The Keely Motor, and Some of its Possible
Applications." Among the latter was the introduction of this new pro-
moter of energy as a probable means of propelling street cars, thus
increasing the facilities for rapid transit, and diminishing the number of
latenesses at early hours. The essay always ended with the, statement
that although the motor was not yet quite ready for the public, still it
would be in a short time. This brief account cannot begin to give the
patient reader an idea of the absorbing nature of the treatise. Then
Sketch Elverson would deliver an able address upon some such burning
question as " Is the South Street Bridge the Best Structure of its Kind in
America ?" By a powerful argument the lecturer would show that it is
the best of its kind, but that fas Reath remarked when he found the
draw openj " it is a d-d poor kind !" The profitable and entertaining
evening would be brought to a close byadebate upon the question, " Do
the Chemical Properties of Oleomargerine justify Daniel in Substituting
it for Butter?" The substance under discussion 'was prohibited from
appearing as evidence in the case, in order that the health of the mem-
bers might not be destroyed. When the debaters had reached the
customary two hours' limit, the President woke up the Society by rapping
with his gavel. A vote was taken, and the question was decided in
the negative. This verdict, agreeing as it did with the conviction which
every man had long ago formed, caused universal satisfaction. Then
the Society adjourned.
The hallwhere all these interesting things take place is itself an
obj ect of interest. The geological collection rivals the Rockery in attract-
iveness and varied excellenceg the library is moderately complete,
although it does not contain Prof. McElroy's Etymology. The orna-
ments that adorn the walls are curious and rare. Among them is an
enormous snake skin-all that was mortal of a reptile which Librarian
Engle once saw after a protracted debate on Prohibition.

'87's Athletic Sports and Non-Athletic "Sports."
UCCESSFUL in field-sports of all kinds, '87 has been
I i particularly successful in track-athletics.
Q Ever since Freshman Year, when Billy
Q . V' ' Page came in first in the mile walk, and
i ,,r, E the judges, misled by his style, gave
ii "-. ""' him the prize for the mile run-when
'fig '--,- Harry Seyfert won the standing broad
A 'I A 'ump, and Billy Page cleared five feet
l lx iive-ever since thoze early times, her
if I l 'L career has been one of continued pros-
v i: " perity.v Even at that distant period
Q Q' mm" ""' f' '87's non-athletic "sports" made their
-r up :., A appearance, and began to show a pro-
" "t' propensity for wagering soft drinks that
their classmates would win. Of these
youths, more anon.
Sophomore Year saw the opening of the new Athletic Grounds, and
a corresponding "boom" in University Sports. The White Cup, for
general excellence in athletics, was won by '87 with ease, and in each of
the succeeding years she made more points in the competition than any
other class. In Sophomore Year the non-athletic sports developed a
disposition to back their opinions with current coin, and when Billy Page
and Randy Faries won their events at the Intercollegiatekcertain enter-
prising men brought home quantities of greenbacks bearing the names
of the National banks around Boston.
In junior Year, '87 put a large number of men on the track, and in
the Fall Sports she carried everything before her. Having won the
base-ball championship, she felt sure of the White Cup, and several
victories in the Spring Sports put her far ahead of all competitors. But
here an unforeseen event occurred. What the Class of 'Alexander lacked
in strength, skill, and agility, it made up in gall, iinpudence, and sophistryg
so that certain of its chosen representatives actually succeeded in per-
suading the authorities to mimi out Me Fa!! Sf0FfSfV07lZ Me m11gpelz'z'z'on,
on the ground that '87 had been favored in the handicapping! This
gave the White Cup to 'Alexander. After this glorious triumph, which
the winning fszkj class valued chiefly because it enabled several mem-
bers to get their spring suits out of pawn, '87 hesitated to enter a contest
where mouth was as effective asrnuscle. But college spirit got the better of
class feeling, and in Senior Year '87 won seventeen points in the sports,
and twelve points from the football and cricket championships. The
base-ball games were not played out, but '87 having held the Cup the
year before was entitled to keep it and the six points, till defeated. She
thus had thirty-five points in all 3 '89 coming next, with thirty-four. Here
again the Class of 'Alexander put in their oar-in more senses than one-
and the authorities gave '89 permission to take the six points which
'Alexander had forfeited, but which '89 had not Won. These '89 accepted,
and again '87 was euchred out of the Cup.
All these curious freaks of fortune at first disgusted the non-athletic
sports, but one of their number bethought him of a way to turn defeat
into victory, He made heavy bets that the class which scored the most
points would fzoz' get the Cup, and, as we have seen, he was right. " It's
a cold day when '87 gets left!"

,,'WWW ' 'ld , f always plays very well or 'very
U- badly. But to decide between
these two is the question. Of
course, there are various devices which may be employed to predict the
result :-for instance, if it is known which side john Ashhurst is betting
on, it is always safe to set down the other side as the winner. But some-
izhzes john doesn't bet, and then everything is uncertain again.
We have said, " Except Mr. Frank Dole," and we hasten to explain
our meaning. One would at first suppose that this gentlernan's foree
knowledge would be of some service in giving the " sports " pointers-
but it is not. No one ever knows Frank's predictions till after the game g
then he always remarks in a confident and comforting tone, " I told you
so!" This, of course, is a mere figure of speech: he never has been
known to tell anybody fexcept in the case of the Princeton game, when
with surprising acuteness, he predicts defeatj, and it is understood to
mean-like certain conditional sentences in Greek-"I could have told
you-Q' I had wanied fo."
'87 has a record in football which she has every reason to be satis-
fied with. It is true that she did not win the championship until Senior
Year g but this with any other class, is the rule rather than the exception ,
'87 tied '86 in the game in Sophomore Year, and defeated '87 Lehigh,
after a hard struggle. Princeton beat her badly, but the Ierseymen had
to work for their score.
In junior Year, '87 had a bitter pill to swallow-her defeat at the
hands-or rather at the feet, of '86. In this game, in some unexplained
way, the various members of '86's rush-line managed to insinuate their
delicate pedal extremities into various portions of the anatomy of '87's
half-backs. After a scrimmage at a critical point of the game, Coates
was carried off the field, and Moffly, who had been doing great work,
had his shoulder-blade broken, and was forced to retire. Then '86 won
the game, amid great applause from Samuel Megargee Wright who h d
shown an unsual interest throughout.
It was in Senior Year, as has been remarked, that '87 won the
championship-defeating Frazer Ashhurst and '88 in an exciting, if
rather one-sided, game 5 and it was in Senior Year that Brigham Young
assumed the management of the University Team. Any one who knows
the state of mind with which Yale regards Brigham, can realize how
impartially he treated the different colleges in the league.
We have spoken of '87's football players collectively, but it would
be a crying injustice not to mention a few of them individually. First and
foremost comes the Frazier-child, who was the best quarter-back in col-
lege, and was only equalled by little Beecher of Yale. He always had
an unostentatious way of coiling his small person about the man with
the ball-which had the effect of bringing the runner's career to a close
in an exceedingly sudden and unlooked-for fashion. He was Captain of
the 'Varsity team in the latter part of junior Year, and the injury to his
knee which prevented his playing in Senior Year, was a great blow to
the College. Then there was Graham. It was in junior Year that he
began to astonish the world by the length of his kicks and to demonstrate
the fact that it was not in vain that he possessed the longest legs and feet
in College. Wlien Freddy once got his pendulum-like limb in motion, and
when once the aggregation of bone and flesh at the extremity struck the
ball-Men every one knew that something wonderful was about to hap-
pen. Fred was Captain of the University team in Senior Year,-the
second '87 man to occupy that honorable position. Besides Moffly, and
Seal and Coates, whom we have mentioned, there was Houston, who was
Captain of the Class Team in Freshman Year, and who afterwards dis-
tinguishecl himself as end-rush on the College Team. In Senior Year he
bb or 3
was unable to play, owing to pressing engagements, and his loss was
greatly felt. Then there was George Pepper, who was Captain of the
Class Team in Sophomore, junior and Senior Years, and who was one of
the twenty-odd men who played on the College Team in '85 and '86.
There was Mallet-Prevost and Clem Griscom lwho remembers having
played against Peters of Yalej and Frank Gummey, whose knee always
got hurt, and Cline and Bobby Eyster, the great end-rush. All these
celebrities, and many more, contributed to '87's football successes, and
helped to raise her to that enviable position in this branch of athletics
which she has held in every other.

somewhat reduced by
a certain practice in
vogue,-that of row-
ing forty strokes a
minute for twenty
zminutes at a stretch g but, nevertheless, a good handful reached the river-
A11 remaining dead-wood was removed by the use of the pair-oar gig,
and a few tough, plucky boys were left. Soon came the Class Races for
the Powel cup. QN. B.-The Powel cup holds six pints, or, rather,
counts six "pints" for the White cup.j In the several interclass contests
in which she has engaged, '87 has always Won, or had a good reason for
not winning, as the following clearly shows. A
The Freshman crew was at length chosen,-Billy Mofdy, Frank
Green, George Pepper, and Sam Houston, with Barr asecoxswain. Race
day came, and our representatives found themselves in an exceedingly
delicate position. '84's crew was the College four, and it would be
ill-judged for '87 to come in ahead. lf there is one thing we have always
avoided, it is letting class feeling get the better of college spirit. Our
crew, therefore, kept second place until the island was reached, and
then, having shown what they could do, gallantly took a place nearer
their feminine friends on the guest-boat, although this piece of good
manners meant third place. We' beat the Medicals, however.
Sophomore Year came, and the circumstances being different, our
men set out to win. They tried to secure that szhe qua nan, a good-
looking coxswain, and lit on Mercer Biddle. This season Whittaker
came to the front, and, with Gummey, Dave Pepper, and Houston, made
up the four. Before the race, everybody and Dick McCall thought '86's
crew wouldwin. On the eventfulday a strong wind lashed the bosom of
'Che Schuylkill into such waves as are seldom seen there. The other con-
testants decided to go up in the steamboat, but not so with 87's crew.
They rowed up to the starting point, and were all the better for the pull.
At the beginning of the struggle, '86 led, but at the half-mile post
our crew took the lead, and came in over the line in 9.085 breaking the
College record. Whittaker and Gummey were advanced to the Univer-
In our third year, Engle, Keeley, Martin, Griscom, Green, D. Pepper,
G. Pepper, Whittaker, and Snyder fcoxswainj, got places in the Class boat.
Again the condition of affairs was rnost embarrassing, but we triumph-
antly emerged from the difficulty. Frank Gummey had left us and gone
to the Medical Department, where he got together a capital eight. '87
had College interests at heart, and the question came up, " Why not let
the'Meds. win ? It will create a new interest in rowing in that Depart-
ment." The logic of this mode of reasoning was afterwards clear.
Whittaker, Green, and Griscom, got places in the University eight-the
first Pennsylvania crew to row against Yale.
This last year, '87 entered no crew for the races. She had learned
by experience that a large proportion of the men she put on the river,
were always appropriated for the College boat. It seemed useless, there-
fore, in the face of the Regatta Committee's decision, to try to row.
Whittaker. of course, rowed again on the College four.
If the trend of this argument has been followed, it will be readily
seen that '87 haslived through four Class races, in all but one of which
she entered a boat. In one race she was victorious, and 171 every oiher
she had excellent reasons for surrerzderzbzgjirsijilarc. Q. E. D.

'87 HOLDS THE COLLEGE CHAMPIONSHIP.
T IS one of '87's greatest athlethic triumphs that, in
I J? addition to holding the College Cham-
5 pionship for three years, she has created
1'5" , 5 and, to a great extent, maintained a first
class 'Varsity Nine. But if there is one
K benefit which she has conferred, yvhich
Qijgqa is even of greater lmportance, it is the
T evolution of such a manager as Norton
J i V Bzze! Young. As was said of Ah Sin-
.... " I shall not deny
L' I In regard to the same what that name
l V might imply 5"
AQ -in years he is indeed young, but in ex-
27 ' perience of various kinds he is about as
Old as they make them. One of the
W NZ many qualitications which. he 'possesses
'Q IS the fact that he combines in himself
"all the functimsf' as Thompson would say " of the varioushbranches
of industry.". In his capacity of manager, he looks after the interests
of the team, in his capacity as reporter on one for rnorej of our great
dailies, he "puffs" his own work, and, incidentally, that of the nine,
while in his capacity as student and spectator he "celebrates" each
victory in a way that baffles all attempt at description.
But '87 did not always have Brigham as manager, nor did '87 always
hold the championship of the College. The first base-ball game in
Freshman Year will long be remembered by those whose fondness for
the circus has not departed with their boyhood. Never did '85 nor '86
think that they had struck a softer thingy never did the results of a sub-
sequent season give greater surprise or cause greater chagrin. After the
defeats of Freshman Year, '87 determined to show what she really could
do, and hence base-ball is one of the University's leadingathletic sports.
In Junior Year the College suddenly awakened to the fact that if '87
would contribute the greater part of the nine, the University Base-Ball
Team might become as much of an institution as the Cricket Team.
Accordingly the nine was formed,.and the record of its succeiful season
'speaks for itself. Hovey, Latta, Frazier, Seyfert-all the players, in fact,
distinguished themselves, and even the proverbial grumblers showed
some signs of being satisfied. n
But it was in Senior Year that Brigham Young the Prophet, the Repor-
ter, the Manager, the Bacchanal,-the " Johannes Factotum " made
himself the central object 'of the University base-ball world. lt was in
Senior Year that he arranged that brilliant series of matches in which
the 'Varsity Nine was pitted against all sorts and conditions of men.
The season began with the usual professional games, in which the nine
played in great form, and then, Brigham arranged a game with the
local colored champions-the Pythians-whom the 'Varsity defeated
after a good game. A slight unpleasantness occurred at the conclusion
of the contest, owing to a disagreement between the dusky captain and
the duskier manager. The' former, finding that oaths were not sufficiently
conclusive, made use of a base-ball batg while the latter, deeming that
his sarcasm was not as cutting as he would like, accented his remarks by
means of a razor. Brigham, in attempting an amicable adjustment, was
impressed by the strength of arguments on both sides, and retired from
the scene in a damaged condition and in disgust. After this brilliant
triumph over Pennsylvania darkies, Brigham arranged a game with
some of the New jersey branch of the descendants of Ham. Probably
with a view to posing as dark horses, these gentlemen styled themselves
the "Cuban Giants g" but, like the mythological monsters, they thought
that they had been smitten by a thunderbolt when the 'Varsity struck
them, and again Brigham had an opportunity to " celebrate."
The games with Amherst,' Williams, Princeton, Trinity, johns Hop-
kins, Vineland-all the long list, bear testimony to the careful work of
Captain Wilson and the good play of the Nine. The 'Varsity has " kept
up her end" in every game, and the students have every reason to be
proud of the Nine. . '

HY 'li constellations, before the slender green shoot had

ff i i' vigorous attempts to raise tennis to the important
VJ 'tt tl t 't ' ll ff thl t-
7 , . I 1, posi ion ia 1 now occupies among co ege a e
l i ' ics. At one of our first-class meetings, we were
Z, ' J electrihed by the mysterious apparition of Dude
o Whitaker, attired in skin-tight knickerbockers
. of snowy whiteness. Dainty slippers encased his
tiny feet, maroon stockings covered his Apollo-
like cowlets, and the work of some fair fingers ffor he always was a lady's
manj, in the shape of a silk tennis cap, was perched rakishly over one
ear. In his characteristically bland style he suggested an appropriation
of seventeen cents, to buy whitewash for marking out a court on the
back campus, adding, that the ladies of his set had worked a net, which
he would "donate," if the appropriation should be voted. When the
applause had ceased, he blushingly retired to pose on the Rockery, and,
although the class treasury would not warrant his proposed extravagance,
yet his words Cespecialiy as they were seconded by R. PJ made a lasting
impression. There was, for a while after this, quite-a craze for tennis, so
that men could be seen, day after day, carrying racquets under their
arms, but the excitement they caused among the sunny-faced denizens
of the " Draw," forced the game into " innocuous desuetudef' The next
year found it still in the same dormant state. Yet the mighty stimulus
of our Freshman hopes bore golden fruit when we became staid Seniors.
Then " Our Willie" began his cupping process, which, contrary to all
medical traditions, showed a strongly invigorating tendency. The hand-
some " White Cup " for tennis, and the three points towards the Athletic
Championship Cup, drew, in the early fall, pairs from all four classes, to
the Belmont cricket grounds, There, after a game ever memorable for
the brilliancy of its plays and the closeness of the contest, the cup fell a
prey to the strong Sophomore pair. In spite of their defeat, our team
should not fail to congratulate themselves. Nothing could exceed the
airy grace of Goforth, while "Jule" Hovey deserved the highest enco-
miums for the marvelous way in which he watched, at the same time,
the ball and the fair spectators. But if '87 did not win the champion-
ship, she can certainly boast of more thoroughly good players than any
other class at the University. Beside the two men already mentioned,
there is Croft Coates, who is considered equally goodg and George Pep-
per, who, although at present a trifle rusty, sports innumerable trophies
that have fallen into his net. Moreover, it is said that Andre Seguin,
when he has gotten outside of enough "soft" drinks to cool his warm
Southern blood, could also make a good fight for the honor of "Old
Penn." Then we have for hadl, Billy Wright, and a host of other good
men of all grades g and last, but by no means least, the graceful siren-
voiced '4 Negligef'

DQQHQNJ' ' 15ffg4f2egigi35f4.:5.gg3' gy in flowery metaphor that our
' f - '
,',t?QQl,,5iig kite would be a high-Hyer.
It is extremely pleasant, in
OL11' ripe old age, to witness
the fruition of our youthful prophecy, and to know that we' have indeed
come very high." But with our well-known modesty we do not
claim absolute perfectiong we must admit our one fault g-there has
been no "tail" to our eleven. At first sight it may seem paradoxical
to consider the possession of exclusively first-class players as a fault,
but any one who has ever watched the antics of a kite without
sufficient "bobs," must see the justice ofthe criticism. At one
moment our kite would soar majestically to the zenith, while little
paper "messengers," inscribed with "Rah,-rah,-rah, rah, rah,"
would be shooting up along the stringsg at the next minute we would
see our splendid tailless kite spin round and round in the giddy vortex
of pride, and then madly dive, like a hawk, below the horizon. This
is but one of the theories advanced to explain those most rare
phenomena,--our defeats. A certain Professor-whose learning is not
proportionate to his size-has always held to a different explanation.
"According to Dowden gentlemen in the Shaksperian theatre the souls
of the damned were always represented attired in striped garments of
orange and black so this would lead us to suppose that the Belmont
contingent proved Ionahs-oh yes! gentlemen you see we have emi-
nent authority me and Dovvden,-he! he! he! ha, ha! ha!-oh undoubt-
edly." But to depart from theory to practice Qsomething our Faculty left
us small time to doj : in our Sophomore year we were defeated by Haver-
ford, a defeat that was robbed of all its bitterness when We considered
that we had been beaten by Friends. Realizing that their college motto
" Fox ez' prwlerecz 7ZZhZ.LH made them too sly for us, we bowed to the
inevitable, sat at the dinner-table, and took both defeat and dinner with
a good grace. Such was our magnanimity throughout the whole affair,
that one of Haverford's best players was overcome by it, and deserted
to the banner of Good Old Penn. Nor have these gracious traits of the
soul been unexpressed and unsupported in the outward man, for, when
our picture was exhibited on Chestnut Street, with a delicate background
of " English Spring Suitings," the sidewalk was blocked for days by the
throngs of admiring spectators. On the whole, we think ourselves a
success. Our reverses have been few, our victories many. We have
always furnished a large representation to the University Team, and
that we are fine examples of virtuous, law-abiding citizens, you may
gather from the following: Since the Director of Public Safety has been
installed, our kite has entirely abandoned " dives," and is, at present, at
the zenith of its flight, in the possession of the Kuhn Championship Cup.

'87's Racket Club.
But at club of good fellows, like those that are here,
And a bottle like this, are the whole of my care.
NE or two of you, gentle readers, may not know
what a Racket Club is. Well, let me
enlighten you. In the first place, notice
particularly that it is spelled with a "ket"
and not with a "quet," and then your
mind will be disabused of any lingering
suspicions of tennis. Let me tell you that
this noble organization was founded with
a view "to promote social intercourse,"
which in Freshman excitement was com-
bined with the equally laudable promotion
of the furniture-maker's trade. Indeed, it
was said that at one of the meetings,
I business cards of these rival tradesmen
were freely circulated through the medium of the caterer. Some-
times this furniture smashing alternated with the milder games of " Old
Maid," " Checkers," and " Dominoes." These were the innocent recre-
ations of our youth, but when, in the next year, our numbers were
increased, then more exciting sports came into vogue. Our " dev'lish
fast" member from Broad Street introduced a " Tiger" into our peaceful
ranks, and immediately all hands set to taming it. By withholding all
animal food and permitting a liberal vegetable diet of " chips," it soon
became domesticated enough to feed from our "hands, and has for
three years furnished endless amusement by its quaint gamboling. Of
course there were some so strait-laced and so blind as to be anti-tiger,

who in the first flush of their zeal vented their disapproval by con-
tinually " bucking" the poor beast, but at present we are all on the most
friendly terms with him. ln junior year many of us had elected Pro-
fessor B. Lee McLean, and 'f scraps" of his teaching were hailed with
rapture by the Racket Club. Under the influence of this learned pro-
fessor we became imbued with such strong cosmopolitan feelings,
we appointed the Marquis of Queensbury an honorary member
invested him with supreme authority. One, would naturally suppose
that with such varied entertainments the Rackets would be a "joy
foreverf' but alas for the shortness of earthly pleasure! men often, by
the time supper was finished, became too ." tired" to hold up their heads.
But in this emergency resources did not fail us : for one of our brightest
lights invented his famous counter-irritant-the "champagne shampoo' '-
which was warranted to give instant relief, and in some cases to effect
a complete cure. Some of our most delightful meetings have been held
out of doors,-our sleighing-parties. Who can forget the meeting with
the girls and their " coasters ! " How we took them in tow, and how our
lady's man received a knotted rope in his face as a reward for his stolen
sweets! But why linger over these dreams of departed glory ? I have
shown you what a Racket Club is, and I will merely add in conclusion
that our four years of friendly intercourse unmarred by a single disagree-
ment, have ably demonstrated the truth of Thompson's definition,-
" Money is the instrument of exchange and association."

The University Orchestra.
vain has the Record Committee attempted to
devise some plan by which '87 would get the
credit of having originated and maintained that
highly successful organization-the University
Orchestra. But in spite of all efforts to disguise
the true parentage of the infant, the family like-
ness still remains so strong, that it proclaims to
all the World-Jor at least to all of the world that
isiiinterested in the questionfthat Charlespeter-
beaucharnpjefferysjunioreightynine is the father
of the child. Indeed the actions of the aforesaid
gentleman-he of the sesquipedalian name-would of themselves put the
matter beyond all dispute, even if no other testimony were forthcoming.
Every one who has attended one of the Orchestra's public performances,
will recall that the first event on the programme is always the entrance of
Mr. Iefferys. A hum of expectation invariably runs through the audi-
ence, as he Carefully and deliberately arranges the music on the stands,
.and notes the position of every good-looking girl in the house. Then he
retires amid universal expressions of feeling, and the comparatively
'unimportant concert begins. V
But if '87 cannot claim 'the honor of having founded the Orchestra,
'she nevertheless is by no means unrepresented in it. There is Ball, the
,great first violin, who never plays a false note save when the mists of
.emotion dim the eye-glasses which are the invariable adjuncts of his
appearance in public.
Then there is Harrington, who distinguished himself on Washington's
Birthday by the excellence of his performance on the trombone, and
Bobby Eyster, who plays second violin. And last, but by no means least,
there is Bob Salter, the accompanist. Some one once said that piano
playing was Bobby's "fade," but that sounds as if there were a joke con-
cealed about the person of the remark, so we do not quote it with appro-
The Orchestra is the youngest and at the same time one of the most
healthy of University organizations. '87 wishes it a long and merry life,
.and hopes that it will add to the good name of its founder.
N. B.-We do not mean add to the Zengfk of his name, but to the
respect in which it is held.

'87 in the Glee Club.
USTLY has it been said, "The man that hath no
music in his soul it if 4 is fit for treason,
strategem and spoils." Having launched forth
this quotation, we will at once change the sub-
H " ject, for we feel our inability 'to cope with such
mighty thoughts. There is another saying,
rather more modern, and local, that we can

better comprehend, viz.: that " Rum and music
cannot mix." But as neither of these quota-
tions has any relation whatever to our text,
revmons ai na: mazalozzs.
It was two years afro that the nucleus of the
present Glee Club inthe shape of 87 s double
quartette sang In doleful strains the fieafk
.far , ,K l U
syzzgenn of Lounsbury, and the peculiarities of his champion-Mac.
But in the next year the Glee Club went on to glory. Nobody had any
faith in their ability to give a concert. The Dean murmured something
about "trying your wings," and "don't you think you had better wait
till you have more confidencef' but he bought tive dollars' worth of
tickets all the same, and the concert was a great successg Dr. Barker
was so broken up they next day that he could not lecture g and even Dr..
Muhlenberg was able to see the propriety of songs that contained just a
suggestion of profanity. After that the Club's reputation was secure.
Its members had never before known what Fame was. Hardly a church
concert or strawberry festival was held that the Club was not invited to
sing. We said "invitedg" it would be more accurate to say, "com-
manded," 'lhe request would generally read about like this: "The
ladies of the Steenth -- Church intend to eat the Church out of debt
at a strawberry and ice cream festival. We shall expect the Glee Club to
be present. VVe want you to sing about ten songs-'funny ones. The
ticketsare 25 cents. You will of course procure tickets for the members.
Be there early." Naturally, it did not take much of this style of thing to
weary the Club, and now nothing but some huge attraction feither edible
or feminine-preferably ediblej, can induce the men to sing- anywhere
outside of college. We may note that one of the pleasant features of the
past year was the entertainment of the Club at Professor McElroy's,
after their Spring concert. Surely, Professor McElroy has set an example
worthy of imitation by others.
The "noxious weedl' has had a very detrimental influence on the
Club. It is said to have been a most heartrending spectacle to see the
leader, fora couple of weeks before a concert, wandering up and down
the College halls in pursuit of Ned Brown, ready to pounce on him the
moment he lighted a cigarette. '
But with all their trials, no men in College have a better time than
the members of the Glee Club, and as the tuneful ones of '87 bid farewell
to these pleasant associations they cannot but sing to those left behind,
" On, gallant company !" and as the walls of " Old Penn " grow dim in
the distance, there will float back the answering refrain-
"Ben Franklin was his name,
And not unknown to fameg
The founder first was he
Of the U-ni-ver-si-tee."

- tion, and it is only fair to let him speak,

fif' fi t 5'f5ve" phic perturbations than is the lot of most
.fo ,f -aw-
F" men. The Seminar met once every two
Weeks during the last winter at Prof. Fullerton's house, and very much
did we enjoy those meetings, At them the mighty systems that have
ruled the minds of men were given their death blows, and '87 can boast
that if Berkeley and Hume have destroyed the two halves of the world,
it, under the leadership of Prof. F., has demolished Berkeley and Hume.
Who then were these mighty spirits who potted togetherin nightly
conclave? First of all comes the Professor, the Arch-Analytic. But we
need not describe him, for we hear that the annual of Bryn Mawr
College will shortly issue an account full of devoted reverence for this
beau ideal of the fair students, along with his picture, done in sympa-
thetic ink, which is intended to combine business with pleasure by
showing the deceitfulness of Substratum. Indeed, Prof. F. has so sharp-
ened the analytical powers of these ladies that they never now speak of
him as a real nice man, but as an idea! nice man, so abhorrent has
everything like realism become to them. And we can hear them saying
" lsn't it nice we are idealists too, for now our College will be on com-
mon grounds with the University." Q" You horrid man, I mean philoso-
phic grounds-not the same campus."j Next comes Billy Newbold. We
name him first because he goes for an Agnostic. Now none of us know
why this is, as he is the most credulous fellow we have ever met, with
his head full of Munchausen-like tales about ghosts seen by his cousins
of every degree, of faith-cures, of trained monkeys who work on farms,
of personal desperate adventures with the blood-hounds at Ogontz
fwhere we hear he is quite the manj, etc., etc. He is also heterodox,
which adds a certain spice to his gay Lothario-like character. Then
follows George Pepper, who is an Oxford Romanticist, and wears curly
hair. To prove his doughty powers as a philosopher we need only
mention that he demolished Kant's Second Antinomy with a verse from
Tennyson. Next Annie Smith, who with true Woman's genius reaches
good conclusions by means of bad logic. And here is Haworth the
Quixotic defender of Dr. M'Cosh and Sir William' Hamilton. But,
alas! his taper and expressive finger will no longer give the signal for
the attack on Idealism, for Fullerton has destroyed Substratum for him,
while Newbold we are afraid has done the same for the rest of his beliefs.
fBye-the-bye, Haworth's friends will be glad to hear that he has signed
the pledge and now never touches a drop of liquor.l jack Harris is
continually jibing Substraturn, but we think it rather amean trick to
kick a fellow when he is down. Next comes Levin, whose very name
sets the whole class in a ferment, and who is so sagacious as never to
commit himself on any philosophic question. Oliver Huckel, unfortun-
ately for himself and his friends, is a poet, and so has not that relish for
philosophy which sane men have. With Walt Whitman, he believes in
the sensuousness of the present, and thinks there is more interest in a
girl's glance than in a whole investigation through a pair of philosophic
spectacles. And in the group is Montgomery, who has been dehned as
a hard-shell Romanticist Qwhatever that isj. Ned Miller, too, the great
man of business, who runs several newspapers and takes the course in
ethics to Ht himself for the chair of Moral Editor on the Ledger staff.
'87 also had disciples sitting at its feet, in the persons of Witlner '88,
and Miller '89, The latter is a nice little fellow and quotes Herbert
Spencer and Huxley's latest bythe yard. But there is one we have
forgotten--john Ashhurst-our rnesmeric subject. The ladies say he is
the most en-lnznceing fellow they have ever seen, and he is now fully
started on a career as mesmeric professional at women's colleges
The following is the product of a Seminarian :
The Song of the Triumphant Idealistg

About the different schools of thought and show where each is wrong 9
And any time you'd like to hear my arguments at length,

Old Plato couldn't stop us long, or even Arzlviatle ,-
The Siaic: and their arguments we managed soon to throttle.
Poor Efirurus had to go- the Srejticx couldn't stand,
The New-Platnnzkts succumbed-that poor devoted band !
Vile skipped into the modern times -Descaries we soon knocked outg
VVe thought that quite as much as he, we had good cause to doubt.
Spinoza then, the Pantlzezkz, could find no leg to stand on-
To Locke we left no argument that he could lay his hands on.

Nor Herbarf, next, nor Schellmg could our wily minds inveigle,
We danced upon their prostrate forms, and wiped the floor with Hzgcl.
But when great BERKELEY blocked the way, in vain our reason fought-
Our mad career was quickly checked-we owned that we were caught !
And tho h ' '

? S R QQ, versity Gun Club is pecul1ar,1n that it would
f ,li lx X ammunition alone and occupy itself exclusively
with the game. Indeed, throughout a large
part of the year this last feature altogether
engrosses the attention of themembers, and
night after night they lie in wait for the
"tiger "-an animal which is considered far more worthy prey than the
average clay pigeon. In summer the war-cry of these valiant huntsmen
is, " get after the game 3 " but throughout the colder months their watch-
word becomes " get z3z the game "-a summons which the members one
and all obey. Some of the men are expert not only with the gun but
with other weapons. It is understood that Billy Smith can spot the ace
of spades at fifteen paces, or even nearerg while any one who has ever
seen Frank Green at a Racket Club meeting, knows his ability to shatter
not only the stem of a wine glass, but even finger-bowls and tumblers at
still greater distances.
, The last annual shoot of the club was held at Clark's Olympic
Grounds. The scene was the usual semi-rural one-horses and geese
feeding in the foreground and a crowd of muckers playing base-ball to
the left. The contestants were P. S. P. Randolph, Dental Department,
S. M. Wright, '86, E. J. Sellers, '86, G. Brinton, '88, and D. S. B. -l- etc.
. . . . . . Z. Chew, '86. The '87 men in the club were ruled out, as the
list of contestants shows, because their skill was such that they would
have rendered the match one-sided. Phil. Randolph was excepted from
the rule, because it was presumed that, having entered a professional
department, he was not in as good practice as he had been before he
be perfectly content to let the weapons and
quituated. But, as the subjoined score shows, even a quondam member
of '87 is more than a match for the regular members of any other class.
Sam Wright playfully aiming at the base-ball flying overhead, drew upon
himself some choice expressions of regard from the muckers. If they
had taken the trouble to look at Sa1n's shooting score however, they might
not have been so fearful of their ba1l's safety. The number of shot
stopped by the h.orses was not counted. judged by the commotion
created it must have been immense. Immediately after a shot of Ned
Sellers at a clay pigeon flying wesf, there arrived a wood-chopper from
the narllz end of the field, announcing that he had received three shot-
one in the back of the hand and one on each side of his vertebral column.
The club saw the one in his hand and took the other two on trust.
He was advised to sue the proprietor of the grounds. Ned Sellers started
a collection with 50.25, but with the exception of Sam Wright, who, with his
usual liberality, gave 35, the rest could not afford to contribute. Ned
Sellers' gun was examined with wonder and admiration. A gun that will
stake in one-fourth of the horizon at a shot is a pretty good thing to have.

The Editor Receives a Call from the Chronic Croaker.
' '87 and The Pennsylvanian.
X he .l AYHAP this article might have begun with a
'i , i il I description of the sanctum of the Pennsylva-
V iff! " ' " mlm, had not that interesting spot been ably
AI. i f treated of by Mr. Oliver Huckel in his
6, 7 , i masterly series of papers entitled "Nooks
2.1-ifmif , and Corners about College." As it is, we
1 will confine ourselves to the journal itself.
in ,I Q, I D That chaste sheet is, as all know, published
I il' ill, 5 i Zfiric once a week throughout the college year, and
f 'Bu in contains the choicest of college news in the
1 fb, i j. most readable form. At least George Pepper
F .TSX yt. said it did when he was Editor-in-Chief,
X' and he ought to know, for he wrote the
greater part of the paper himself. Then it
contained-the past tense is used because
we are speaking of the time when '87 'controlled the journal-
articles of every description, such as the "Nooks," above mentioned,
and reports of interviews with prominent men. These last were written
by Ned Miller, and were almost too original to be authentic. The
Alumni Notes were a characteristic feature of the paper, being compiled
by that great triumvirate, Miller, Huckel and Montgomery. They con-
stituted a reasonably complete series of biographical notes concerning
two noted ecclesiastics. One, as a relative of'Miller's, furnished innu-
merable items of great interest to the family, and the other, as an
ancestor of Montgomeryhs, had ample tribute paid to his memory. The
poems were numerous and of Varied kind. Dunn was a contributor to
this department, and inserted vers de saciifii which had been rejected
by LW. Huckel wrote poems with high-sounding names, containing
apostrophes to manly virtue and feminine beauty, replete with obsolete
words and classic phraseology. Pepper contributed the colloquial verses
on Freshmen, the Faculty, and similar trifling subjects, which usually
contained three rhymes in every line to distract the reader's attention
from the subject-matter.
VVe must not forget Brigham Young's athletic articles-written in
that charming colloquial style, which the Philadelphia Item has made so
popular. His " Words of Advice to Base-Ball Players" excited uni-
versal comment, and his spicy editorials upon the "Athletic Outlook"
were remarkable for their candor and vigor. Brigham was a jewel-a
trifle uncut, perhaps, but a jewel all the sarne.
But by far the most unique portion of the whole work was the busi-
ness managing. This was Brock's department, and nobly did he do
what was expected of him. That is to say, he got the books so tangled
up that no expert could straighten them out, and came out short at the
end of the year. This was partly due to an unfortunate peculiarity in
his handwriting which made his entries perfectly illegible, even to him-
selfg and partly to a habit which he had of becoming so absorbed in his
VVharton School work,.that he became utterly oblivious of the Pennsyl-
With all these worthies on the staff, the PE7Z7Z.SjlZ'Z!LZ7ZZ2Z7Z passed a most
prosperous year. Perhaps no greater praise can be bestowed upon it
than to mention the fact that it was highly spoken of by all the Alumni
and friends of the University, and by all the students except a certain
faction in '88.

'87 in the Dramatic Club.
' UNIOR YEAR saw the death of that rare exotic,
which withered under the chilling influence of
ofncial scorn, It was one of the finest organiza-
tions in college. On a certain day in October,
Davie Werner Amram was seen floating around
the halls, pouncing on one man here, and button-
holing another therel Soon the secret was out.
,Q y ff He had been struck with an idea. He Wanted
X to start a Dramatic Club, and he did. With the
rod of his biblical ancestor in his hand, he touched
the rocky and obdurate hearts of his hearers,-
in short, they melted. They elected him Presi-
dent,-Adams, Secretary, and Frankel, Treasurer the still owes the
Club .2KiZ.43D. A thrilling drama in Eve acts was written by the President,
with the aid of a dime novel, an alrnanac, a geological map of Camden,
ii'li i l
and the indispensable astronomical clock, and sextant O. KD. It
had four burning jungles, and several canal-boat scenes. By taking the
members to Otto's, Davie induced them to take his play. All the
members wanted to be the hero. Adams claimed that right because he
had once " starred" in a dime museum, playing "Baby Mine " on the
piano, with both feet.
Elverson insisted that he was the greatest actor in the Club. He
once played in a panorama of the Battle of Bunker Hill. He was the
Hill. Frankel asserted that he had traveled with Barnum's learned pig-
combination. He was the pig. Amram had played " Martha Washing-
ton" in a great moral wax-works show. Finally the cast of characters was
decided, and, when the play had been well rehearsed, Frankel said he
wouldn't play. That settled it. Another play was chosen, namely, a
parody on " Othello" with the following cast of characters :
Othello, H. C. Adams,
Iago, D. W. Amram, fRameyj.
Roderigo, L. K. Frankel, QKe1lyj.
Brabantzb, F. Ashhurst, '88, Qof whom more anonj.
Casszb, M. V. Snyder, QSnidej. n
Desdeifzofza, I. S. Elverson, QSketchj.
E11zz'Zz'a, C. T. P., etc., Brunner, fDuckyj.
Then Mr. Louis DuPont Syle fof blessedumemoryjjoined the Club,
Three weeks later the Club was no more. Syle wanted to produce a
parody on the " Acharniansf' It and he were crushed. He now teaches
school in the lumber regions of Michigan. " Othello " rehearsed beauti-
fully. The girls, Elverson and Brunner, were stunning. " Sketch "
ambled around in skirts with the grace of a cow in a corn-field,-and
" Ducky's " Irish brogue and pas sezzlwere perfection. Frankel's imperso-
nation of the dude " Roderigo " drunk, was natural and lifelike. Amram's
" Iago " was an exact counterpart of Booth's famous impersonation, and,
as the villain, he carried a sword, which he ordinarily held in both hands
and gazed at with reverential awe. " Othello " was a noble old coon, and
when he seized " Iago " by the throat, crying " damned ignoble dog " and
proceeded to walk around over the anatomy of the said prostrate " Iago,"
-whom he had succeeded in knocking out in the fourth round, it seemed
as if the spirit of Thespis himself was in him. But the applause of the
thousands has never greeted us. We died young. .
A new Dramatic Club has sprung into existence, known as "The
Frazer Ashhurst Dramatic Association of the University of Pennsyl
vania " :
President, Mr. Frazer Ashhurst.
A Vice-President, Mr. F. Ashhurst.
Secretary and Treasurer, F. Ashhurst.

Bicycle Club. 555
'87i1'1 the Bicycle Club.
The University is every now and then reminded of the existence of
this organization by conspicuous posters Qthe work of VV. B., Pagej which
advertise a moonlight ride or a twenty-mile spin. These posters describe
the country through which the road lies, in terms of the most flowery
character, and are illustrated with landscape drawings of the japanese-
type. The Club itself is remarkable as being composed of the queerest
chaps in college. Everybody knows Whittaker the oarsman-he of the
innocent face, and the smile that is child-like and bland. He looks as
if butter wouldn't melt in his mouth g well, it wouldn't, if it didn't know
him. But if the butter were Daniel's butter, and consequently able to
run alongside of the bicycles with never-failing strength, it is rumored
that it would see strange sights at the stopping places for rest and
refreshment. Then there is Sheafer who talks so slowly, and prefaces
every sentence with a pun. It is currently reported that it is this dry
humor which has caused many of the disgraceful orgies to which we
have insinuated that Whittaker was a party. Billy Page, too, adds to
the list of Curiosities, and Billy zlv a curiosity. Apart from his jumping
powers, he enjoys an enviable reputation as a wheelman-a reputation
which he fairly -earned by puffing his own tours in the L. A. W Bulleizh.
Then there is john Harris whose favorite ride is to Bryn Mawr,-starting
early and coming home late, spending the interval, it is rumored, as
near as he can safely approach to the halls of female culture.
It is to be regretted that Whittaker lost the great Spring Road Race
to Keen '89, but it is impossible for a man to lead the life that Al. leads,
and win races too.

The Club was formetfggglmgout the middle ot Sophomore Year,
through the untiring efforts of Ias. F. Magee, Jr., alzkzs jimmy, alzkzr One
Lung. He is well known to all the Class, but for the benefit of Freshmen
he may be described as the handsome brunette, with the light-dark
mustache, who might be seen any time during recitation hours reclining
on one of the benches in the,Assembly Room, his face wreathed in smiles
and cigarette smoke. Thexmembers were the zikbonnfzzrfe Adams-the
man who stands first in the Science fsee cataloguejg the phlegmatic
Sheafer, who went into the Wharton School to get a rest, and. after the
first term " never smiled again g" the musical Brock, the backs of whose
ears may be seen as he leads the Glee Club 5 Leighton Lee, the Apollo
of the Club g Seguin, the fiery Southron, who, his warm blood cooled by
the northern blasts, slept peacefully even at Barkers' stirring lectures,
and last, Crawford Coates, a leader of VVest Philadelphia Society, who
was chosen member because of his likeness to Seguin. The Club used
to hold its meetings at the houses of the different members. Each mem-
ber furnished his own board Qchess-board, of coursej. Seguin, because
he was supposed to be a dark horse, was elected President, and the affable
James had himself chosen Secretary. After the Club had assembled, it
determined to hold a tournament, and immediately proceeded to carry
out the idea. The first thing to be attended to at each meeting was the
getting under way of the game between Sheafer and Brock. The con-
tests between these two players were noticeable principally for their
length and the brilliant repartee indulged in by both contestants. On one
occasion, when all the other members having finished their games had
watched the progress of the Brock-Sheafer game for an hour or more,
sleep fell upon them. "Silence reigned supreme," nothing being heard
save the snorous liszkj breathing of the sleepers. Then Brock inadvertently
remarked that he had lost a pawn. At the sound of the last word all
the sleepers started uneasilyg Seguin felt for his watch, Adams for his
scarf-pin, while Magee, jumping up to look for his overcoat, fell over the
chess-board and made the game a draw-

'87 in Print.
NDER such a title as the above much able
literary matter will, perhaps, find no place.
For instance, Somers Smith's Lenten Ser-
mon on " Shams," delivered in the chapel
3 of the University, was never printed,
although the Class desired to publish it.
Levin's compositions have. never been
printed, nor have Russell's full and very
valuable recitation-room notes. All such
matter, however excellent in its way, must
be ruled out of the present discussion.
Vike versa, much "rot" will receive treat-
ment. And first, as to '87 's newspaper
work. The Class sent three men into jour-
nalism. One of them, Young, has been several times returned. Brigham
Young is, nevertheless, our most prolific newspaper writer. Carlyle
would have said of him: "Write easily, by steam if thou cans't con-
trive it, and cans't sell it, but hide it, like virtue ! " Brig. is nothing if
not enterprising, and so the past year he sent postals to newspapers the
country over, inquiring whether they desired him to cover University of
Pennsylvania news. They were almost unanimous in their opposition to
any such plan, and Young had to fall back on the Item, a paper,
by-the-bye, to his own heart. Apart'from journalistic work, Brig. is
noted for his short, spicy talks to young men, through the " Communi-
cation" column of the .Penn.gf!wmz'an. His style is that of the so-called
penny-a-liner. QSee McElroy's and Syle's Sirucfun of Englzkh Prose,
with Index, p. 75, Q II5.j
Spencer Brock, like Brigham, is a reporter. 5 Our title, " In Print,"
becomes very significant in his case, since the portion of Spencer's writ-
ings that have appeared in type give no adequate idea of what he has
written for publication. He has penned several verses of poetry, which
have been published, but our friend has a tendency, unfortunately

toward improper subjects, and some of his pieces have been refused by
the Polzke Gazeffe. The Class trio of newspaper scribes is completed
by Ned Miller.
McElroy, Professor of Middle English at the University, once,
when complaint was made of inefficiency in English instruction, gave
answer to the grurnbler, " Read the Pemzsylffanzkzn, and then, if you will,
'come and find fault." The Professor had no such intention, but his
remark was rather personal.
The .P87Z7ZS'jlZ7!LZ7ZZ'd7Z was, until recently, the organ of George Pepper,
:and was a tolerably complete compilation of his literary work. Indeed,
i-t has been suggested that the paper of this period be published as the
" Poems and Prose Remains of George Wharton Pepper," and the idea
is a good one. George and jim Montgomery wrote a long series of
biographies for the Pennsylwzfzzkzn, which were published without, it must
be said, in truth, increasing the paper's circulation to any marked extent.
Pepper is also a poet, or better, a rhymster. Several of his so-called
fugitive pieces have been published in " Lge," QN. B.-The word
'f fugitive' is very attractive to young poets, but is usually applied to
those effusions at which they have labored for months.l
Hucl-:el considers himself a genuine poet-not a verse-maker. The
'distinction between the two seems to be that the poet writes little, while
the verse-maker covers quires of paper, and that the former avoids plain
Anglo-Saxon words where possible. Turning from the poet to the prose
writer, we find Oliver doing very fair work. As a friend of Pepper, he has
had the use of the Pemzsylwzvzzkm for a literary safety-valve g but the great
bulk of his Writings have been " sprung " on country editors-the
journalists of Frankford and vicinity. ln provincial sheets he has a way
of modestly heading articles, " Nutshell Wisdom," "Notes of aThinker,"
" Sage Scribblingsf' and the like, Eddie Dunn, Amran, and Seguin
are all guilty of more or less verse-making. The former prizes Very
highly a check for One Dollar, received from Lie, "payment in
full for ten lines of poetry."
To speak of all '87'S literary men one must not forget Billy Page's
contributions to the L. A. WY Bulleizh, describing his bicycling trips.
His writing is-still, one can't be champion high jumper of America and
write Belles-Jeffrey. A
The scholarly articles in recent numbers of Hebrazba, signed E. F. B.,
and said, to come .from the pen of E. French Brown, whose familiarity
with the Old Testament, in the original, is probably greater than his
knowledge of the English version. The latter is not very thorough.
Mention may well be made here of prospective publications by '87
men. The editors ofthe "American Statesman Series" have selected
Mr. J. S. Brock to take charge of the biography of Albert S. Bolles. It
has been the object of those in charge of the series to avoid biographers
over-friendly to the subjects of their sketches, and the wisdom in their
choice of Brock is thus apparent. He goes to this work equipped in
every way for impartial discussion.
The announcement of a book by Dave Pepper should attract wide
attention. The writer takes for his topic. "Home Breaking," and
describes accurately, we believe, how it is done, where it is best done,
when it can be done, why it is done, and why it cannot be undone. All
ladies' men should possess a copy.

' W A a. 1fff11f:"L" are, the Club might be put clown as one
of the many fanciful excresences which
spring like mushrooms from excited imaginations about " Record" time.
The Sketch Club, however, has done real work. It was organized by
members of '87 in the Wiiiter of 1885-6, and since then has achieved
many successes. It includes nearly all the best artists in college, and
its members are devoted and successful pen and pencil slingersg but
of the members from the Class of '87 it is appropriate here to make
special mention. Baugh's sketches during foreign travel, especially
through England and France, form a remarkable collection. Ashbrook
entcels in off-hand illustrations of the classics. Ashhurst, whose
specialty is cartooning the foibles Qsiclj of fashionable society, can
also branch out in classical directions, as was seen in his illustrations
to the libretto of the " Acharniansf' as well as work on the old " Maga-
zine" and in several previous " Records." On account, however, of the
multiplicity of well-executed " cuts" of another stripe, which he has been
busy in furnishing to the Dean during the past year-about five days
out of every three-he has become too exhausted to prepare any cuts for
the present " Record." Oliver Huckel-a worker in crayon and oil-
does some pen-and-ink sketching, too, especially in the designs on '87's
Cremation Programme, some of the cartoons in the Burlesque Pro-
gramme,issued by '87, at'86's Class Day, in previous "Records," and many
of the sketches in the present one. Huckel once intended to illus-
trate his series of descriptive articles, " Nooks and Corners around Col-
lege" in the Pennsylmznzkzn, but after showing one or two of the sketches
to the editors, they considerately concluded that the luxuriant word-
painting would be as much as their long-suffering subscribers could well
wrestle with. George Pepper is a born cartoonist and is a disciple of
Henry Blackburn in his little scheme as to the value of a line. He has,
however, an unfortunate predilection for sketching pretty girls at church,
and the margins of his prayer-book are full of seraphic heads.
Amram is weird and realistic in his sketches, with a keen sense of the
droll and grotesque. He will persist, however, in drawing his favorite
bologna-sausage. Sheafer is the dilettante of the Club. His work is
the perfection of delicacy and hnish. His only fault is a trifling one-
whenever he portrays a Cupid or an Apollo, it invariably has the exact
Visage of Mr. Sheafer himself. Whether this is accidental or whether
done "with malice aforethoughtf' has never been rightly cleared up.
We have laid awake nights worrying over this very problem, and " yet
we are not happy." The Club has severalhonorary members : Professor
Richards, who drew the plans of the University Buildings, Mr. Marks,
who draws up " rosters," and Pomp, who makes a' specialty of dmwzhg
5350 a week as a slight remuneration for his services in giving, along
with jackson, tone to the institution. But what has this to do with the
high price of wheat in the West? If you want to judge of the off-hand
work of the Sketch Club, borrow some of the note-books of the members.
If you want to see the cream of their work-that is, of the '87 members
-behold the cartoons, initial letters, and tail-pieces of this "Record,"
Take courage, and thank your stars that you are still alive!

An Intermediate Department
An Interview with William Shakspere, Esq.
A liberal education teaches a man never to be surprised at anything,
and so well had '87 learned this lesson that no astonishment whatever
was expressed when one day in class-meeting tl'ie Corresponding Secre-
tary succeeded in making himself heard Qin spite of the oppressive silence
which usually reigns upon such occasionsj, and read to the assembled
multitude the following communication:
" To the Meznbers afihe Class Q' '87,
" Unz"zfer5z'zj1 of PE?17Z.UlfUd11Z'6l, Greelzhg .-
" DEAR SIRS:-Having watched with much curiosity-not to say
amusement-the progress of your critical study of one of my plays, under
the guidance of that most painstaking scholar, Professor Michael Roy,
it occurred to me that I would be pleased to meet you all in an informal
way, and express my impressions of you in terms taken from my works.
I have secured the services of a medium, and he has promised to resur-
rect me upon the 32d inst.-at which time I will be glad to see you, with
as many of your professors as choose to come. '
" Yours respectfully,
The above invitation was at once accepted with thanks, and the
autograph letter was presented to the Department of English, to be
inserted among the critical commentaries upon the works of the great
dramatist. It was thought that it would be of value in the determination
of the much-mooted question concerning the orthography of the name
Shakspere, and that it would be an important addition to the mass of
instructive evidence which the careful professor has collected.
On the appointed day the Class repaired to a place which had been
selected as mutually agreeable-Mr. Shakspere having remarked that
his tastes were so decidedly insular, that as long as England was out of
the question, he preferred Smith's Island g and the Class having acqui-
esced in his choice from a pardonable curiosity to see how Haworth
would behave in a stronghold of high license. Mr. Shakspere, who, in
conformity with the traditions of the spot, was in high spirits, urged the
Class to leave the ferry-boat, opening the interview with a quotation.
from " King john ":
ff Make haste 5 the better foot before! "
And seeing certain members of the mathematical section approaching,
he said :
" Misbegbtten knaves in Kendall green l" 1
but fearing he had offended them, he said, in an encouraging tone :
" Potations pottle-deep! I' 2 1
This put every one in a good humor, except Haworth, who had learned a.
few quotations in case of emergency, and now remarked in a solemn tone :
" Every inordinate cup is unblessed and the ingredient is a devil! " 3
1 Henry IV., 214. 3 Ibid. , g
2Othello, 2 : 3.
but Shakspere happened to remember the very next lines, and replied,
f' Come, come, good wine is a good familiar creature, if it be well used ! " 4
finishing with the exclamation, .
" This Senior-junior! " 5
Remembering his duties as host, he pointed to the numerous benches,
and called out :
" Masters, spread yourselves ! " 5 -
Levin resented the term " Masters," as unbecoming the dignity of
Seniors, and objected :
f' We are melz, my liege." 7
But Shakspere was provoked at the correction, and retorted,
" Ay! in the catalogue ye go for men! " B
at the same time muttering,
" I dote on his very absence ! " 9
Prof. Michael Roy now stepped up, and offered to introduce the ment
one at a time. A smile passed over Shakspere's countenance as he
remembered the critical comments, and he whispered to Montgomery :
" He draweth out the thread of his verbosity
Finer than the staple of his argument ! " 10
However, he accepted the Professor's offer, and began to comment upon
each man who was presented to him. Newbold was the first, and
Shakspere shook his head, and remarked :
" That unlettered, small-knowing soul I " 11
"Annie " Smith was the next, and he was characterized as-
A child of our grandmother Eve, a female 3
Or, for thy more sweet understanding, a woman !" 11
And next to him came Dunn, whom Shakspere addressed as,
ff The lunatic, the lover, and the poet." 13

Welsh was presented next, and Shakspere gee'd him by exclaiming :
" Brain him with his lady's fan." 11 ' .
Smaltz, as usual, was not far off, and coming next, was dismissed with
" God made him-therefore let him pass for a man! " 15
Latta was introduced, and gave his host's spectral hand an ardent grip,
so that the latter cried Out-
" A Corinthian, a lad of mettle, a good boy ! " 16
Brock, fresh from his tribulations with Professor Bowels, was presented
next. He looked so careworn that Shakspere exclaimed--
"A needy, hollow-eyed, sharp-looking wretch,
A living dead man."17 V
An amusing incident marked the introduction of john Ashhurst.
Notlcing his conspicuous watch1chain, Shakspere asked him the time,
and john was forced to reveal the fact that instead of a timepiece there
was nothing but a bunch of keys at the other end of the chain. Shaks-
pere grasped the situation at once, and laughingly exclaimed-
" Oh my prophetic soul !
My uncle f" 13
Fetterolf, Maison, Murphey and Remont were greeted with the remark-
" Adversity's sweet milk-Philosophyf' 19
and Kenney, who was chasing Tommy Latta about and gambolling like
a frisky kid, was quite overcome when the great man called out-
" How green you are, and fresh, in this old world ! " 20
All this time Russell had been standing close at hand with that note-
book which contains every commonplace ever uttered during a recitation
by Professor jackson. He was taking notes- of all that passed, and thus
attracted the attention of Shakspere, who called him-
" A snapper-upnof unconsiderecl triHes," 21

just at this instant Russell spied Professor Fullerton, and hastened
to help him off with his overcoat, and then escorted him to the poetic:
presence, where Shakspere said of him-
" His years but young, but his experience old 3
His head unmellowed, but his judgment ripe." 22
Then Shakspere inquired-
i " VVhere is the Provost? " 23
but he did not have to wait for an answer, for the Provost, the Dean, andl
President Frazier were seen approaching from a quiet corner, where they'
had been discussing affairs of state. Shakspere remarked-
" This is a gentle Provost." 24
and when the Dean approached, he said-
" Of very reverend reputation,
Of credit infinite, highly beloved." 25
He then turned to Frazier and said, with much respect-
'f The President ! " 26
He seemed amused that so much dignity should reside in so small a
frame, and smilingly said :
"A boy, or a child, I Wonder? " 27
Here another professor appeared upon the scene, and Shakspere burst
out laughing, and exclaimed-
" There is one goat for you l " 28
a remark which afforded intense satisfaction to Forbes and Ned Brown.
Huckel was standing near, and when he had been introduced, the
great inan said z
" How now, poet? How now ? " 29
which so overwhelmed that bashful youth that he blushed even more:
than was his wont.

The two Peppers were next presented. When George was intro-
duced Shakspere said :
" Ay, he spoke Greek. To what effect?
It was Greek to me." 30
And when Dave came, he huddled himself all in a heap, as though it
were cold-and gave vent to the single word-
" Bray l" 31
This allusion was only too well understood, and Dave was furious. As
the two went away, Shakspere laughingly remarked, A
" I peppered two of them." 32
just then a great shout went up, and a general laugh followed the excla-
" Behold how Pomp is followed I " 33
It was indeed he, and his arrival put every one in a good humor. Ned
Miller was presented, and with that inimitable self-possession which a
reporter' alone enjoys, returned the poet's salutation by remarking, " How
are you, William ?" Shakspere was evidently amused, and exclaimed-
" A pestilent gall! " 34
" Nancy " Lee was introduced, and he so won the great man's
heart with his innocent smile and embryo moustache, that the latter
kissed his hand to him, and cried out-
" Sweet Nan ! " 35
Time forbids to tell of all the greetings in detail-how he charac-
terized Harris as A
" Exceeding wise, fair-spoken, and persuading." 35
jim Montgomery as
" Full of wise saws and modern instances,".37
Clem Griscom as
" Not lean enough to be thought a good student." 35

It would take volumes to tell how Shakspere remarked, when Sam
Houston was introduced- l
" . . . Iamaman,
That from my first have been inclined to thrift." 40
When Brigham was introduced-
Hjesters do oft prove prophets ! " 41
When Magilton was brought forward-
" Nature hath formed strange fellows in her time." 42
Sufnce it to say that he gradually went through the whole list, and
when the time came to go, the class crowded together and gave the poet
a cheer. It was a long, loud cheer, and it so disturbed! the air that it
exercised some strange effect upon Shakspere's ghost-like person. He
grew more and more airy and mist-likeg but before he quite disappeared
from view, a whispering voice was heard to say-
" Then let us take a ceremonious leave,
And loving farewell of our several friends." 43

Good morning, sirs, good morning,

As the myriad-minded Shakespeare says
I have somewhat to say.
No, gentlemen, on second thought,
I don't think Shakespeare said it :
It must have been in Bacon's works,
Or Carlyle, that I read it.
Our friend Pseudartabas, I think,
Might well be sued for libel,
By Shakespeare, Bacon, or Carlyle :
He read it in the Bible.
Of course, of course, I knew that well,-
I only spoke in fun,
But as your quip was kindly meant,
Kind sir, I owe you one,
By-the-bye, gentle1nen,,that word " quip
I tried hard to induce
A friend of mine to understand
That it was " in good use 3"
At length I rose up with a smile,
And showed on every page .
Its constant use by writers, down
From Chaucer's golden age.
Our brother has explained himself,
I think we really ought
To coincide when he displays
Such logical clear thought.
And since he's proved conclusively ,
That "quip" is in good use,
Suppose we hear what useful fruit
His mission can produce.
Suppose he tells what marking scheme
They use across the sea:
For he has proved that none can speak
As "1oosedly " as he.

To Ridgway's classic isle I went,-
The cradle of the great,-
And there I saw the barmaid score
Her marks upon the slate.
DiC.- I must confess that I am grieved
To see our envoy smile
In a way that shows he recollects
Much fun at Ridgway's isle.
PSEU.- You seem entirely to forget
That, as I older grow,
My self-control grows stronger
Than it was some time ago.
Why, gentlemen, in London,
All through the town I went, '
And learned more there in seven days
Than in the years I've spent
In Phi1adelphia's quiet streets,
Where Qspeaking of this matterj
I must confess that I've seen sights
That made my teeth just chatter.

While crossing the channel from England to France,
I was lounging upon an old halyard by chance,
W'hen a sailor approached, and he said, " Sir, I hope
That you know men have died from the bight of a rope
I thought he was joking, but learned in amaze
That the man didn't use a mere nautical phrase,
For I went to the captain and found it was true :
He answered that " landsmen quite frequently do
We hadn't gone more than a short distance out,
And the waves were all surging and tossing about,
When I heard from the captain a boisterous shout
Of-" all hands go heave up the anchor."
I had heard that at sea we must always obey :
So I went to the rail, and I venture to say
Not a soul could heave harder than I did that clay
Tho' for work of that kind I don't hanker.
PR. OF DION.-YOU should not hate such work as that-
The Work of Mercy's daughtersg
For conscience bids you all to " cast
Your bread upon the waters."
The stomach of our Christian friend
Was probably too high 3
We fear his look was far too proud
For man who's born to die.
Excuse me, but I'd like to know,
Good sir, if you'll explain,
If conscience is a " Moral Sense,"
Or "Function of the Brain."
Now, if he has a moral sense,
His tales of Ridgway Park
Would lead his heaters to suppose
He keeps it very dark.
But if you hold the latter ground,
I'd like it well defined.
How Conscience can exist in one
Who has-n't any mind.
Since Conscience, as a part of
Than mind must smaller be,
Our envoy's conscience must be ni!
Because no mind has he.
Young man, your argument but proves
A fact we knew too well
But " rifvfenom' fi nas maufozzsu now,-
The tale he has to tell.
From Calais to Paris I went in all haste,
And fearful temptations I manfully faced
My wisdom and learning soon gained me great fame
And the " Demi-monde " styled me la creme de la creme
But I own that the mark that I made at Paree
Don't compare to the marks that it left upon me
For its beauty and grandeur so dazzled my mind
That no novel system of mark

Yes, Reddy's gone, clear Recldy's gone, with many a puzzling question
The doctors sent him to the coast to cure his indigestiong
He used to Hunk us oft upon the U. S. Constitution,
Because the questions asked of us were all without solution.
But when we finished up the theme, a dreadful sickness ailed him,-
His face was pale, his eyes grew dim, his constitution failed himg
The strict construction views he held, he plead with all his might,
And so he wont return to us until his own ff state's rightf'
Stenographic Report of One of Professor lVIcElroy's
Professor McElroy said: " Ah, gentlemen, you're very late this
morning-close the door, please. Mr. Dunn-you must try to be more
careful-good-morning, Mr. Montgomery-and not disturb Mr. Schelling
by coming in late. I'll call the roll. Before takingqup our reading, gen-
tlemen, I would like to say a word upon a subject that has been forced
upon me a good deal lately-good-morning, Mr. Brown, please close the
door-what was I-ah, yes. I refer to the vicious government of
this town, and it's the fault of the people themselves, gentlemen, they
are absolutely lacking in municipal pride g-Mr. Fetterolf, will you kindly
open the window, and give us some air-let me give you a concrete
example-that is suflicient, I think, Mr. Fetterolf-one of my neighbors
has allowed'his pavement to become a perfect abominationg why, it has
been completely covered with ice all winter. They wouldn't tolerate
such a thing for a moment in Boston, even if the Irish do control their
municipal government. I was very observant of this when I was in
Cambridge. I was visiting some very good friends of mine at the time
of the Harvard Celebration-Mr. Russell, will you shut the register, it is
most unconscionably hot in here.-Ah, let us get to our reading. Let's see,
where were we, Mr. Pepper? Oh, yes, Scene IV.- but justfor one moment
before we begin let me put in a protest against these new rosters. What
the committee have lacked in good judgment, I see they have made up
in paper. Ha! ha !-But let us begin, Mr. Smith.-Didl see you writing
upon that chair, sir ? It is perfectly outrageous, sir, the manner in which
our college furniture is hacked to pieces. I have had great trouble, gen-
tlemen, in getting new arms for these chairs, and I shall be tempted to
make it a Faculty case if I see any one mutilating them. Iwill be extremely
severe, gentlemen, for I'm very much in earnest-why, I'll take pains to
see that the man shall not graduate. But we are losing time. Let's see,-
I believe you were about to read, Mr. Srnith. VVell, now, I don't see
anything particularly difficult in that passage, Mr. Smith g there are
several points which seem to trouble our English editors, but I really
don't see why. Will the next man read? Why, what in the world is the
matter with your reading, don't read it in that way. Gentlemen, we
shall surely have to have an instructor in elocution appointed. It is
really astonishing how few college men are able to read well, and the
clergy are the worst of all. But let us get back to our Shakespeare. The
Hrst line of the passage is very difficult indeed, at leastl found it so.
How do you explain it? Ah, can you explain it, Mr. Harris P Yes, that's
right, quite right. I think it must be that. It might possibly mean-no,
I don't see that there is a possibility of any other interpretation. I con-
fess I don't know exactly why, but I don't think Shakespeare intended
it to be so. You see, gentlemen, the infinite trouble-if Mr. Fullerton
will permit me the word-that those rascally pedants of schoolmasters get
us into by attempting to dragoon our language into doing things by
square measure. Ah, that must have been the bell. You're dismissed,
gentlemeng We shall really have to get over more ground next time, if we
ever hope to finish the play."

The Tour of Ye Tramps.
Four youths they were of goodly build,
With bold and manly courage filled,
Who thought they'd tramp for many a day
Through distant states to fair " Luray."
The tallest youth was six feet two,
In point of size he yields to few g
His age is just sweet twenty-one,
His name is Edwards Sanford Dunn,
And next to him Montgomery came
Uames Alan is his Christian namej,
With many a saw and sage remark,
Which Noah made while in the Ark.
George Wharton Pepper was the third g
Whose soul the god of music stirred :
ln singing songs did he rejoice,
Though, heaven knows, he has no voice.
Charles Cooper Townsend's name comes last,
A man whose taste's extremely fast,
He smokes and smokes from morn till night,
And onceyhe said if" Oh lv Darn ! Q-outrigeht
You may hunt the world all over
As carefully as you please,
But spite of all your trouble,
You'1l End no men like these.
There was wit and wisdom,
Talent and fun,
Good fand evilj,
In every one.
They could crack a joke,
And sing a song, I
And tell tall lies
When the way was long.
They could loudly laugh
When a thing was queer 3
And all but Dunn
Could guzzle beer.
When rustics gibed,
They could gibe in return 3
And many a maiden's
Heart did burn
W'hen she saw the air
Of easy grace,
And the gold-rimmed " specs'
Which adorned Dunn's face.
They were all good feeders,
Could all eat pie 5 '
As all their hosts could certify.
They were all heart-breakers,
And all could talk g
And you betcherboots
They all could walk!
A Sample Page of "Letters from Hell."
Davy has just iinished reading his passage in the Ars Poetica with
that fluency that is acquired only after a careful study of an interlinear,
and has resumed his seat with a bland smile of self-approbation. After
a little preliminary throat-clearing, Professor Capricornus, in his most
insinuating style, murmurs, " Yes, Mr. Amram, you are quite right 5 fqgius
marbus does mean jaundice, but why should the epithet, " kinglyfl be used
in connection with that disease" ? Here Davy's ability to " read between
the lines" fails him : he wriggles and squirms for amoment, scratches his
head, looks at the ceiling, arid then an inspiration comes to him, as he
answers, " Because, Professor, it could only be cured by .vovereigzz firzzgs "
"Ting, ting,-,-ting," sighed the learned satirical professor as his finger
felt for the little button.

An Unpublished War Article.
EEK LETTER FRATERNITI ES at the
, University are not only institutions of con-
! siderable importance, but also, as the RECORD
1' A' ,ul Q, Committee has learned to its sorrow, of very
JL? ixfil X long standing. When 'it became necessary
to 'decide which society should have Hrst
placeby virtue of superior age, then a scene
of chaotic uproar ensued that beggars de-
scription. The question was brought before
Z 9 I 0-W As the ,meeting by Miller's introducing the 111K E
birth certificate, a paper that challenged the
1 an-b,ssf y birthday of Z if, and still further claimed
j I that both that Fraternity and the A fb,
" like the famous Brigham, or still more
famous bird of antiquity, had been defunct and revivified. As
there was no " Phi Kap" present, Leighton Lee and the two " Zetes "
united in greeting the paperwith shouts-of derision. 'But this harmony
was of short duration, for after George? Pepper had dilated for half an
hour on the birth, " continuous existence," and glory of his Chapter, and
had finished, out of breath, by declaring that Z if should go in first,
because he believed that the A fb had not always been alive and kicking,
Leighton answered by saying that their charter had always been held 5
and to show that he, at least, was alive and kicking, he concluded with
an 'V' undercut" on G. W. P.'s ear. After five minutes of this earnest
style of argument, it was discovered that Chauncey Baugh was attempt-
ing to corrupt the meeting through the key-hole, and the ambulance was
sent for. When quiet had been restored, a strange .gasping noise was
heard proceeding from the far corner, alternating with an easy-Howing
gurgle, like a meadow brook. As the noise increased in volume, it was
discovered to proceed from jack Forbes, and to be caused by his varying

his blessings on jackson with his curses on Fraternities collectively and
individually. Strange as it may appear to those who are acquainted with
this gentleman's fine command of language, his remarks were not
received with applause: his seed fell on stony ground. There was a
rush of "offensive partisans," a struggle, a smothered groan, and it was
all over. Then johnny Ashhurst,' in true Fullertonic style, clearly
demonstrated that the word "Q founded " was used in two distinct senses,
and proved conclusively that the only thing that could be proved, was
that it could not be proved. "If I doubt that I doubt," he continued,
now fairly astride of his hobby, " I can-." But he got no further, for a
well-aimed chair, and an irate " confound you, John, shut up! you're not
lecturing at Bryn Mawr now," from Ned Dunn, effectually ended his
discourse. However, as his point about the two senses of "founded "
was well taken, the meeting turned its attention to the question of " con-
tinuous existencef' For afull hour was this subject thoroughly argued
on sound logical principles, while the way that the wit and razors flashed
would have done credit to a nigger poker club. While we were thus
struggling and and writhing on the horns of this dilemma-a Syriac
word, which is by interpretation, " a goat "-at last the sweetly
modulated voice of our-orator-poet was heard suggesting that the Fra-
ternities should be arranged alphabetically. Exhausted as we were by
our ,prolonged struggle, we hailed this advice with delight g hands were
shaken "all round," and the troubled waters subsided at the touch of
the peaceful oil. '

M -It , ii if g if l sun,-with as much regularity as

hi . ,gl 1' ' YF' ters on the Traction Company's

I v ll .JH t f .
i TA W re urn o spring.
wfffj ' Some of the gentlemen who
have contributed the verses which
the reader will find in various
portions of this record, contend that the surest way of recognizing the
annual return of thisjoyful season is by listening to the sweet carol of
the birds, by watching the rapid growth of the timid crocus, and by feel-
ing in one's self the promptings of a susceptible heart. But we believe
that there are still more infallible tokens than these--and two of them
are the return of Qaj the organ-grinder, and of fbj the annual examina-
tions. But whatever be the means of determining the question, thefacz'
remains the same : the spring has come, and '87's undergraduate life has
drawn to a close.
The mention of the annual examination-the time when forgotten
facts are burnished up and made to seem at home in heads where they
really feel strange, the time when step by step the student has to go over
the work of the year that has just passed over him-the mention, we say,
of this time of recapitulation, leads us to the consideration of the title at
the top of this page-to a brief summary of the work and sport which
have made '87's Senior Year a memorable one.
It seems but a few weeks since the beginning of Senior Year, when
'87 assembled on the great stone steps of College Hall, and since Pomp
ushered in Senior Year with the tolling of the chapel bell. Although
'87's deeds would fill volumes, it is not our purpose to confine this retro-
spect to her doings alone. As an introduction to the University records
and statistics which till the following pages, let us glance for an instant
at the eventful life which Alma Mater has been leading lately, and let
us find in her progress and enterprise the promise of long-continued
usefulness and prosperity.
Those who live in the midst of a rapid but silent transformation are
the last to recognize the magnitude of the changes which are taking place
around them. It is hard for us to realize that any material progress has
been made since the last audience assembled at a University Class-day,
and since " Old Penn " sent forth her last brood of chicks 5 it is hard for us
to understand the greatness of the steps with which she is striding to the
front-hard, because the transformation scene has come upon us "not
with observation." A
If there is one event more than another by reason of which '87's
Senior Year has made itself an epoch in University history, it is the final
cementing of the union between the various departments of Alma Mater.
The Greek Play, the Glee Club, the Orchestra, the Washington's Birth-
day Celebration-all have exerted a tremendous concentrating influence,
and have made the departments understand that it is only by a combina-
tion of forces that the best results can be attained.
The enthusiasm of college spirit which has been aroused by the
proofs of what can be done when all make up their minds to act together
has had more important results than the mere strengthening of the col-
lege teams and organizations. It has made the Faculty respond to the
demands for progress, by showing them that it is a living organism
which they have to deal with, this great body of student life,-not a
spiritless and heartless existence, with no pleasures but selnsh pleasures,
and no ambition but the ambition to escape as much work as possible.
That the Faculty has responded, can be seen from the relaxation of the
iron compulsory system, and the adoption of a generous set of electives,
the institution of such obvious improvements as preliminary examina-
tions, and the promise ofstill greater changes in the future.
And the Faculty itself has been increased and strengthened. New
professors have been added, and the list-which now foots up nearly one
hundred and fifty-contains among the recent additions such names as
Jastrow, Hilprecht, Brinton, Peters. Each one of these men is unex-
celled in his specialty, and one at least is unrivaled.
The mere delivering of lectures and the conducting of recitations is
but a part of the work which is expected from the professors of a great
University. This truth has found ample recognition at the hands of
the Faculty, and the recent bibliography of the University is of such
importance and value as is not surpassed by the work of any other simi-
lar body in America.
The magnificent lecture-series given by Mr. Henry Blackburn, of
London, Prof. Rudolfo Lanciani, of Rome, Prof. Leotsakos, of Athens,
and Drs. Hilprecht, Peters, Brinton and lastrow, and the Forestry
lectures by distinguished specialists have been features of the year.
The professors and students have been drawn nearer together, and
a traditional hostllity has been wiped out of existence. Voluntary classes
and seminars are the order of the day, and there are now a thousand
and one opportunities for the professor to gain such a knowledge of his
students as a mere lecture-room acquaintance would never give.
'The Alumni are showing an increasing interest, and the University
is beginning to feel the tremendous influence which well-organized
efforts of her elder sons can exert. The Alumni Athletic Prizes have
already stimulated the athletes to the breaking of several records, and
new interest has been added to the sports.
Club house and dormitories, the two hour interval for all depart-
ments, the abolition-of compulsory attendance on chapel-all these and
many more improvements which '87 has suggested, will soon become
established realities, and incalculable benefit will result.
With a record like this to its credit, 'S7's Senior Yearihas passed

IOI3 CHESTNUT STREET,
AVE you ever visited 810 Market Street? If
not let us suggest that you do so. You'll be
benefited by doing it. So will we. So will
A n O I' others with whom you come in contact. Wrong
impressions will be corrected. New ideas will take the
place of the wrong ones you now entertain. You'll be
I wiser than you were before. You'll be in a position to
make others wiser. Further than this, the knowledge
you will gain is of the sort that will make both
yourself and others happier, and the pursuit of
happiness, you know, is one of the great and
proper aims of life- that is the pursuit of true happiness. But why are we
so anxious to have you visit 81o Market Street? Simply because we want you to
see for yourself what sort of a place it is 5 what sort of goods we sell g what sort of
prices we ask, and what sort of people we cater to. The latter you can judge from
the people themselves, from the goods we provide for them, and from our own more
than perfect facilities. Now just a word or two about these. The building, 810
Market Street, is not all of Src Market Street. In fact, 810 Market Street alone is
little more than a wide entrance to the store proper, which embraces the three
buildings 81o Market and 805 and 807 Jayne Street, each of the two latter buildings
being far larger than the one facing on Market Street. lt is the lioorrspace of these
Jayne Street buildings that enable us to boast of the largest and handsornest Furni-
ture and Carpet Showrooms in Philadelphia. and that admits of equally as roomy
departments on the floors above. On this first floor, in place of the conventional
salesroom, long and narrow, with its bare floors and dingy surroundings, will be
found broad, brilliantly lighted, handsomely carpeted and richly appointed show-
rooms, where everything is in keeping with the goods displayed and where the
goods themselves are rich enough to add to, and not detract from, the beauty of their
surroundings. Under these favorable circumstances, we show a stock of Furniture
and Carpets that in size, completeness, beauty or excellence is second to none in the
city, if, indeed, it is equalled by any displayed elsewhere. This perfect stock is
reinforced by a no less complete exhibit of other Household requisites, from the
smallest kitchen utensil to the richest hanging of Gobelin texture or the costliest art
piece of Bisque or Bronze. But do not think that because we give precedence to
Housekeeping Goods that we conhne our stock to these alone. On the fioors above,
entirely removed from anything suggestive of household cares or improvements,
are the departments that cater alone to your individual wants. In the Jayne Street
buildings you will find the Silk Dress Goods, Suit, Millinery, Shoe, Notion, Hosiery,
Underwear, Linen, Jewelry and Parasol Departments, while far removed from
these and occupying the entire second floor of the Market Street building is our
Clothing Department, with its superb stock of Men's, Youths' and Boys' Clothing,
and its thoroughly equipped and as thoroughly stocked Custom Tailoring Depart-
ment. But again let us ask and answer the question : VVhy do we want you to visit
'Src Market Street? It is because we recognize the fact that comparison alone is the
one satisfactory measure of value-the one infallible test to which you can put our
statements, our goods, our prices and ourfacilitiesg and we want you to be convinced,
as only personal inspection can convince you, that what we say is true-that our
goods are.as fine, as artistic and as reliable as any offered elsewhere, and that our
prices, for goods of this class, are as low as those of any other of the many leading
houses we might mention. Will you come? The coming places you under no
obligation to buy, and you certainly will not be asked to do so. All that we
want you to do is, to look, ask questions, and to
make yourself at home. Should you desire to buy,
however, don't let the lack of ready money interfere
account to you on our books and allow you to settle
the same gradually and in such amounts as you can,
from time to time, most conveniently spare. We repeat, 8 1
with your doing so, as we will cheerfully open an
however, that it isn't to buy that we ask you here.
We want to secure the good opinion of our house,
our goods and our prices that will follow on a visit to
our Store. I 8 I O Market
