Oh ! the sleepless nights, and the dreams haunted by original conundrums and old jokes. If our hair is not gray we are indeed thankful. Our staff is a model one, each member wishing to be boss and not wanting to work, so that whenever we met for business there was more scrap- ping than anything else. After a while, however, we realized that, although we were all to be bosses, we should each have to do his share of work; so we threw all our energies into the task of sorting and putting into some sort of order the chaos of literary produc- tions with which we had been deluged. Alas ! it was a hopeless task ; for after weeks of superhuman effort we gave way beneath the strain. Only two more days EAR READER: Since we were appointed by our class to pre- were left in which to have the copy ready for the printer. “ The Grist ” must be published, so we selected at random from the great pile of MS. the rubbish which you will find in the following pages. If, dear reader, there should be anything in them to hurt your feelings, we would advise you to seek out the writer and get satisfaction; but do not ask us to help you, for our task is done, and we are tired. fcafentar. 1896.

I HE improvements at the college during the past year have exceeded in number and importance those in any one pre- ceding year. The buildings have received names in honor of the governors who were in office at the time the appropriations for building were made. The dormitory is called Davis Hall ; the experiment station building, Taft Laboratory; the mechanical building, Ladd Labora- tory ; . and the new building, which has been completed during the past year, Lippitt Hall. This last is a noble looking structure, built of granite from the college quarry. Over the entrance is the State seal carved in granite. There are but three floors; the first containing the physical laboratory, the electrical laboratory, and the engine room, in which is kept the printing press for doing the college printing. On the second floor are two recitation rooms, a lecture room, the young ladies’ study room, and the library, which is under the supervision of a regular librarian. The third floor is a spacious drill hall. It is one of the finest halls in this part of the country, being one hundred and thirty-eight feet long, and having a seating capacity of one thousand. The acquisition of this building not only increases the facilities for work, but also makes it possible to develop social life at the college. The barracks and carpenter’s shop have been moved east of Lippitt Hall, and the interior of the former has been converted into a chemical laboratory and lecture room. This laboratory is much larger, and, because of its ex cellent hoods, better than the one formerly used in Taft Laboratory. These buildings have been moved for the purpose of clearing the campus. The government has built half a mile of sample road around the campus, which greatly facilitates travel, as the chief characteristic of Kingston soil is mud. There were so many applications for admission to Watson House that the two attic rooms on the third floor were furnished ; but even these additions proved insufficient for the demand. During the winter the M. E. M. G. F. G. Club connected with Watson House gave a very successful entertainment, the proceeds of which were used for the improvement of the reception room. One destructive feature entered with all this prosperity, and that was a slight damage done to the botanical laboratory by fire. The professor of botany was the most seriously affected by the loss of her herbarium. The new members of the faculty are Miss Rockwell, who suc- ceeded Miss Peckham ; Miss Eldred, who succeeded Miss Helme ; Dr. Bucher, professor of chemistry ; C. F. Kenyon, assistant chemist ; and L,. H. Marsland, assistant in mathematics. Those who have watched the growth of the institution fully appreciate these improvements, and we hope the coming volumes of “The Grist” will be able to relate further and greater successes than have yet been accomplished. t)i (professor ' 0 Ifyunt for Brounbs A Prof, one day a-hnnting went Ground circuits new to find. He on this quest was so intent Nought else could fill his mind. And when a shaky joint was found In Johnny Wilby’s room, He spread the news for miles around — His face with joy did bloom. Through the tin cup he thought he could A nice short circuit get, And that it came right through the wood, He willing was to bet. He to the engine room did go, All joints with tape he wrapped ; He hunted all day, high and low, To see if wires were tapped. That circuit through the old tin cup A mystery will remain, Unless the secret’s given up By naughty Mr. Payne. Of currents from a magneto We’ve heard, when turned by hand ; But how a shock through wood could go We’ll never understand. Cfa00£0 " 1901. " CLASS COLORS: Crimson and White. IrSfijlK have now nearly completed three terms of college life, I V J and is with pride that we submit to the public the record of our events. On the 2i st of September, 1897, we entered the Rhode Island College. We were not long in making acquaintances among the upper classmen, and we found them to be a genial set of young people; although at first they sometimes sent us to the wrong places, or told us “ Bear Stories.” During the first few weeks our efforts to appear decorous must have caused much amusement among the other classes, but that is no more. When we selected our class pins, some of the members wished to have them of a different design from that used at present ; but, when the pther classes and the faculty asked us to keep the old design, we agreed not to make any change. In October the Juniors gave a reception to our class, at which we made many new acquaintances, and received our first impres- sions of college society. For the most part the Sophomores have refrained from troubling the Freshman; a few of them did, however, try to give us some “Cold Baths,” but they retired with more speed than grace. The Class had no football team of its own, during the season of 97. but it showed its ability in combining with the Sophomores, and winning each of the several games played. We also had several members on the “varsity” eleven, which is in itself a very great honor, and one of which few classes can boast. Early in the spring we formed a base-ball team, which has amply upheld the honor of its class. Of course we have our “curios,” as has every class; we are proud to have “Sousa” in our midst, also several other musicians of note. Our “ mascot ” always brings good luck ; he was prominent on each of the above-mentioned “elevens,” which to any well informed per- son explains itself. His favorite pastime is dancing the Schottische. Well! we are only Freshmen now, but soon we “cross the awful chasm” and become Sophomores. Then let the Freshmen beware for we prophesy trouble ; and now we bid you good-bye, until we meet you again in the next “Grist.” c. G. A. J ' resljman Ct’aee. CLASS YELL: Here we Come! Mere we Come!

I SStIHEN we took leave of you a year ago, we promised to “ see I V »J you later ; ” and as we are men of our word, “ nous void. " (Please observe that we have studied French since we saw you ' last.) We are sorry to have lost some of our members, but, as we have gained an equal number, we still have a membership of thirty. We cannot deny that there are some very strange things about this class of 1900. One notable fact is that we always “ Fry ” our game. The class has certainly been growing too “Cross” of late, and it is not so “ Jollie” as formerly, yet it has a large “ Soul(e).” One of our number is called Greene, but we also have a Brightman who looks after our understanding. Another fellow has been a Wheeler all his life, yet his achievements in mathematics are even more brilliant than his cycling record. One of our young ladies is very fond of taking shocks, and of catching Arachnida, ophidia, Lepidoptera, bacertilia, shy chophiladee, Earnellibranchiata, and other such creatures, but these things never seem to “ Hurter.” The proposition in one of the early Sophomore class meetings to receive a Sp(h)inx among our number was at first rather startling, but we concluded that we could “ Tucker ” in. Some members of the class have been electing expression, and when a particularly large blot alights on a particularly fine mechanical drawing there is conclusive evidence that they have not studied in vain. We had no chance to immortalize ourselves by building a drill shed, and we have been so unfortunate as to lose our Carpenter, but we think we shall yet be able to demonstrate that the class of ’99 is not the only one gifted with architectural abilities. The evening of March eleventh is one we shall long remem- ber. At that time Miss Putnam received her classmates at Watson House. The hours passed merrily, and as we left the air rang with cheers for our honorary member. We hold no ill will against the Freshmen for refusing us an opportunity to beat them at foot-ball. We welcome them to the place which, in the course of college events, we must soon vacate ; with all the privileges and appurtenances thereto belonging, not excepting the mysteries of Trig and Chemistry, while we “Steere” our way as “Wells” we may toward the joys and perplexities of Junior life. It is with sincere regret that we say good-bye to the class of ’98 ; yet it is a pleasure to acknowledge the courtesy and kindness they have always shown us, and to give them our heartiest good wishes as they go out from us and from their Alma Mater. oj omore CCaes.

Junior Ct’ase CLASS COLORS : Blue and Pink. Miss Peckham, our former instructor in English, and an honorary member of our class, left at the close of last year to attend the Leland Stanford University, in California. We regret her departure, and her presence among us has been greatly missed. Miss Merrow, professor of botany, very kindly consented to become an honorary member of our class. Her help and friendship have been a great pleasure to us, and are thoroughly appreciated by all. Alfred Willson Bosworth is a man of muscle. His highest ambition is to be- come a captain and wear a sword. How he used to envy that inimitable strut that Gossie had when he was a captain ! He is very susceptible to the charms of the fair ones of our number, and it has been reported that he may often be seen on Sunday after- noons and evenings in the vicinity of Watson House, and not always alone. He had the honor to suc- ceed Bill Gump as physical laboratory assistant. We would advise him to take a lesson from Gump’s fall from grace, and not know too much of practical electricity, or the history may be repeated. Clifford Brewster Morrison. Tread softly, bow thy head in lowly reverence; humble thyself before this mighty intellect which has appeared in our midst, whose equal never crossed the threshold of the R. I. C. Never was there brain that held so much. He is an authority on bacteria. Of chemistry he knows everything. In biol- ogy he can give the professor points. When, in the botanical laboratory, he explains the chemical reactions going on in the cells of plants, we are awed into wondering admiration, and the professor meekly subsides i nto silent recognition of a superior mind. Merrill A. Ladd. How he loves to lord it in the boarding hall. As he struts around the tables like a little bantam rooster, his expression proclaims the fact that he is monarch of all he surveys. His frown of disgust, when some poor, hungry student has the audacity to ask for more, is inde- scribable. He is a very bright lad in matters pertaining to electricity, and we have been told that without his help the storage battery would never have been in the almost useless condition in which it now is. William F wen. “ Whistle and she’ll come to you my lad.” He can cut ice with SpQl any girl in the place, but, being a true sport, MM he does not care for game which comes too easily to his net, so he goes hunting in Peacedale, where the girls are more shy. Jmm He captain of the team, and is noted E. Payne, ye ancient one, called papa by some of the younger members of the class,, who, however, do not show him the respect which such a name should command. He is a living example of the demoralizing effect of environment, for he came here a staid old man ; but the surrounding influ- ence has so affected him that, although he has never been caught, we believe that he is up to more boyish devilment than any of the youngsters ever thought of. Ask him who fastened the smoking-room door and waited at the second story with a pail of water, ready to soak the smokers as they escaped by the window. Who sent the shock through the old tin cup. Sally Rodman Thompson has a great fondness for mathematics and for bossing the show. You may see her any morning scurrying off to the class in mathematics — the lower branches — as though she wanted to get there before she forgot her lesson. One day in class the following axiom was formulated: “ It’s so, if it isn’t so, if Sally says so.” Blydon E. Kenyon is a good, honest member of the class. He minds his own business, and has not made himself con- spicuous by the development of any special idiosyncracies. He is a great favorite with all the girls of the class. E John Stuart Cummings loves study and drill above all other good things. He is especially stuck on German, and would rather study that than have a good dinner. Ask him, if you don’t believe us. Henry F. W. Arnold is a young man with a taste for “Degeneration.” A true morbid deviation from an original type. His lingering refrain, “Am I an accidental concatenation of parts?” Perhaps so, my boy ; but then, true blood always tells. Point Judith has brought forth many illustrious sons, but none more so than Harry Knowles. He began his college work at the age of fifteen, disturbing our morning slumbers by ringing the bell at 6 : 30 every morning, studying biology and agriculture. He aspires to become a Ph. D., and will get his degree, even if he has to buy one in Germany. In affairs du cxur he is considered by many to be an adept, but we know of one vulner- able spot in his heart. Mildred Wayne Harvey is a very ambitious girl, and had a very high stand- ing in her class until a measly time came along. From this she has not yet wholly recovered, but hopes to, soon. She is an active worker in some of the societies, and generally holds some office, and acts often as a delegate. She has been secretary of the class for three years, and will probably keep that office till we graduate. Robert S. Reynolds came here from Wickford. He is an excellent waiter, when he is not asleep, and is a prominent mem- ber of the athletic association. He says that when he is president of a college he will let the students have every day off for athletic sports. George A. Sherman. Some persons think that George A. Sherman has missed his calling in becoming a mechanical stu- dent, and that he ought to have stuck to farming. He has been carrying on some original research in mechanics, and expects to solve the problem of perpetual motion soon. Although this jmung gentleman comes from the country, he can give some of the city boys a few points in most subjects. Walter C. Phillips is president of the class of ’99. He is a straight mechanical student, and gets much enjoyment out of machine-shop work. ’Tis said that the belt is constantly slipping off the pulley of his lathe, but instead of losing patience with it, he is contented to sit down and take it easy until the instructor comes along and replaces it for him. His great ambition is to take life easy. Carroll Knowles is the only Kingston man in the class. He is a great student of languages, and has especially distinguished himself in French and German. As a mathematician no one in the class can beat him. At class meetings he supports every motion that is made, and was never known to take the negative side. Minnie E. Rice is from Wickford, and is taking the straight scientific course. She expects to become a schoolmarm, so, as a preparation for her future work, she is taking agricultural chemistry. Her execu- tive ability is great, as was shown by the way she carried out her duties as a member of the Arbor Day committee. Gertrude S. Fison comes daily from Peacedale. She takes all the studies of the Junior scientifics, with the exception of English; which, however, she would have taken, had not the professor of that branch told her that she was not advanced enough in years to take such an advanced study. At tackling social problems she is an adept, for she planned and managed our reception to the Freshmen with great skill. ' 98 . CLASS COLORS: Blue and White. CLASS YELL : Rah ! rah ! rah ! Never late, We’re the Class of ’98! Rah! E UR most promising student of evolution has departed to unknown regions in search of hidden mysteries, so the history of the Senior class, which is necessarily of an evolutionary character, cannot be presented in that precise and logical order which marks the productions of such individuals. The progress of the class during the past year has been most marked, but no less distinct are the changes wrought in the indi- viduals. Indeed, I believe that the personality of the various members stands out more prominently before the outside observer than does the advancement of the class collectively. It is perhaps well that this is so ; for when the time comes for united effort, as it will in the near future, the class of ’98 will not be found wanting. We have perhaps seen more changes at the college than has any other class, for, when such events as fires and restorations could no longer claim our attention, we have been busy trying some new venture, which has generally been successful, and has often proved a precedent to other classes. We all supposed astrology was something of past ages, never more to return ; so nothing could create greater astonishment, no, not even the report that the Spanish navy commanded by Alphonso XX. was upon Lake Laurel, than did the notice read in chapel stating that all the students were assigned to certain members of the faculty, who would be their guiding star to advise, foretell, and rule their destinies. Those who do not understand the facts of the case declare that at present we are surrounded by a mantle of life and one of death. They say that the mantle of life is bright and unmistakable, for it embodies, among other things, a high hope for the future. This is quite true, but when questioned about the man- tle of death they try to seek a connection between it and the modern astrology, saj’ing that as we have several doctors as guiding stars, and that one month of doctor’s care will kill a sick man and two a well one, there is really very little hope for us. This is wholly untrue, for they have confounded the new astrology with the old, and perhaps the physicians of our modern times with the ancients, or. what is more likely, with our modern quacks. Our honorary member, Miss Bosworth, we regret to say, will not be able to be with us at commencement, for she soon sails over the ocean. Bon voyage, we shall not forget. At an evening gathering in her house she presented the class with an ivy, which will be planted on class day, when our poet, orator, and speakers will shed forth the glory of their eloquence and genius ; but this will be near commencement, the day to which we now look forward.

Once upon a day so dreary, while we pondered, bright and cheery, Each one o’er a new and curious volume of chemical lore — While we listened, no, not napping, suddenly there came a tapping As of some one lightly walking, walking to the class-room door. “’Tis the doctor,” some one muttered, “walking to the class-room door ” — This it was that stopped the roar. Ah. distinctly we remember it was in the glad September, When the doctor, mild and tender, book in hand before us stood. “ Now this book will be quite ample, each before you has a sample, But before we further trample, let me now suggest some food For your future good and guidance, when you work beneath the hood, ’Neath the better, larger hood.” “ First of all the mysteries solving, and the work on you devolving Is for you to group correctly all the metals as you should, In solutions that I give you — the reagents that are needed HC1 by HoS succeeded, since the odor is not good. And in fact I should advise you, if the odor is not good, Always work beneath the hood.” This was but an introduction to the hood with its seduction— Little did the mild professor, as he spake in kindly mood, Think of all the fascination and the varied conversation, That the students with elation carried on across the hood. Oh, the cookies that were eaten by the few who understood— As they waited ’neath the hood. But the course is now completed, and although we’re not conceited, Still we feel somewhat elated that our work has been so good. Thinking not of things we’ve broken, nor of tests which have bespoken Much “ magruffen,” wretched token, we would linger if we could : But the thought is thrust upon us nevermore beneath the hood, ’ Neath the better, larger hood. @ (Bforioue ($c0tefcement HE saddest event in the history of our college, or any other institution, occurred Thursday afternoon, May 19, 1898, on the college athletic field. After vanquishing their brethren of 1900 in the ball game, the Freshmen never stopped till they achieved the right to carry canes forever upon the college grounds. It was a famous victory, marked by wonderful and glorious deeds, unparalleled in any conflict recorded in history. That awful struggle would surely have continued till now if it had not been for some of our respected alumni, who, out of pity for 1900, broke up the conflict before serious injuries occurred. The struggle for the cane was brought about in this manner: Considerable feeling having been aroused by the inglorious defeat sustained by the Sophomores, one of their number, he of “ Regal Shoe” fame, over-zealous in his regard for a Sophomore victory, conceived the idea of forcing the Freshmen to give up the right of carrying canes. His eye fell upon a diminutive individual from Phenix, who was bravely parading about with one of the coveted sticks. Action immediately began, and, in a second, Mother Earth was covered with a swaying, battling mass of excited humanity. Legs and arms, but no heads nor bodies, shins were scraped, and heads were banged, the solar plexus especially receiving a full share of bruises ; whilst from the pile came yells and invocations to Mars and all the gods of war. Here and there about the pile little groups were struggling; blood soon showed itself, and the whole country became tinged with a red light. The Sophomores were getting worsted ; and the charitable-ininded alumni, after much hard labor, managed to separate the combatants and to restore peace. The college awarded the cane to the Freshies, and we all hope they’ll stand by their colors as they did that May afternoon. But there’ll be no need of such efforts, for the whole world knows what happened after supper, on the college road, for the Sophomores are humilated and crushed beyond recovery. This is the second time that 1900 has bitten the dust, for good old ’99 beat them with a vengeance. We showed them up to the world then, and thought, perhaps, they’d take heed and brace up; but ’01 showed they couldn’t or wouldn’t, so we have lost all faith in them. But there is some good blood in the class, and if t hey take advan- tage of it they may come out all right. 6 efdjes of Courses of ( grtcufture. N opening the college catalogue and looking through the classes, one would conclude that but a small portion of the students are farmers’ sons. But in the Junior class there are actually as many as two taking the Agricultural course. Graduates of this school do not carry out the design of the course, but rather spend their energies as expressed in the words of Jethro Tull. “ They think it more eligible to study the art of plowing the sea with ships than of tilling the land with plows ; and regard it beneath men of learning to employ their learned labours in the invention of new instruments for increasing of bread.” As an inducement to lead a rural life a course in “ Farm Manage- ment” is required in the first term of the Freshman year, which consists of picturing to the student the profit derived from the use of improved farm implements ; also in furnishing the proper train- ing for the selection of a location when they come to enjoy the pleasures of running a farm, while burdening them with definitions such as “A wall is a fence, but a fence is not necessarily a wall,” and many other agricultural terms. Besides all these benefits, there is also that of mental training derived in trying to decipher one’s own hieroglyphics after one has hurriedly taken notes on a •lecture. Then, passing on, we arrive at the study of “ Farm Accounts,” upon which we spent many happy hours pondering over account books, or devising some scheme by which to make the accounts balance, and thereby securing a good big " A.” Next comes what we thought to be the useless “ Drainage,” in which we were obliged to tax our brain to determine the depth a ditch should be dug in order to have the necessary fall, at the same time keeping the tile in a straight line ; but now, on looking back, all agree it should have been placed first, for one, waking up at night and finding himself confronted with three or four pails of HoO, commences to think of tile and its uses. With the commencement of the Soph year comes the critical moment for the decision whether or no to take the Aggie course, and for the benefit of the class of ’99 the professor of agriculture offered to pay the admission to the count} ' fair of all those who would take the agricultural course. This was too great a tempta- tion for two of us to resist. The first study we took up was that of “ Breeds of Live Stock.” Many were the hours we passed in tracing out the pedigrees of different animals. At the same time we studied the subject of “ Farm Crops,” in which we learned what varieties of crops could be grown together, also their chief characteristics. It was while studying this subject that we learned an astonishing fact, one morning, when the Prof, asked how to plant peas. This is the answer he received : “ In hills, four feet apart each way.” Perhaps that student had in. mind the ideal method of intertillage of which we have heard so much. Nevertheless, there is one study in the agricultural course from which some pleasure is derived, and that is civil engineering. For, when out with the transit surveying some piece of land, or perhaps laying out a road, we can spot a pretty girl in the distance by simply focusing the telescope on her, and none is any the wiser. On such days we are the envy of the Mechanics, who have by this time realized that machine shop work is not as pleasant as they at first thought it to be. - QYleclJamcaf Course, All through the first year here at Kingston every student has a problem to solve. It is a question which we often hear asked, but very seldom answered : " Which course are you going to take ? ” It is not for us to philosophize, so we cannot say why most of our young men take the mechanical course. Possibly it is because they have an antipathy for the rake and hoe, or it may be they believe that their mind contains the latent genius of a Fulton or a Watts: however, be that as it may, the fact remains the same. The first distinctly mechanical study of the course is wood-turn- ing. Many curious adventures occur here. One day a young man was manipulating a piece of soft wood. His fastenings not being the most secure, the stick was liberated, and, whirling through the air, hit him squarely over the eye. It is safe to wager that “Prof. Holder” never saw more stars in the heavens on a frosty November night than our young man saw in his narrow hori- zon for a few seconds. But our young men have done something more than meet with these unfortunate adventures. They have supplied the gymnasium with Indian clubs of their own production. We hope that when our gymnasium shall be better equipped that these clubs will be saved as a relic of a former generation or some other equally good cause. But we pass on to the forgin g of iron, which is our next occupa- tion. Such an admirable forge-shop as we have. There is only one fault: at certain times, particularly when the afternoon’s work is beginning, the atmosphere becomes thick with smoke, resembling an aggravated London fog. You cannot see your next neighbor, but occasionally can catch a glance of red hot iron. But that Smoke! Well, it is right there, and stays until one feels like saying “How long, O Lord, how long.” But one feature of forging is that it does not last forever, al- though difficulties thicken all the time. And when you are perched up on a ladder in the top of the machine-shop, sweltering with heat, and using vain phrases endeavoring to replace a refractory belt on the pulleys, you can almost wish yourself back in the thick atmos- phere of the forge-shop. But, about the belt, there is a most excel- lent way of replacing one. First get your ladder placed right (this is essential), then ascend upon it, get to your belt, fumble round five minutes, then go and tell the instructor that you cannot replace it. Luckily he can do it, so you are all right again. Napoleon said: “The tools belong to those who can use them,” and so that is one way of replacing a belt. All this goes to prove that the way of the would-be mechanic is not always strewn with roses ; and if you are going to be a me- chanic you must take the bad along with the good, the bitter with the sweet. Cfjemt frp Our course in chemistry is like the beautiful, “ a joy forever.” We shall always think of our chem. lab. days as happy ones. Now it is very sad, but there are a few individuals in college who will very heartily refute these statements. Take as an example Mr. Second Floor Senior, first door to the left. Imagine, if you will, the consternation and rage of that youth when he reads these lines. There will be weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth in more than one happy home. Nevertheless, we, the lovers, the worshipers at the shrine of chemistry, and ei bas with those who oppose. For our theoretical course we refer you to pages 23, 42, 43, 67, 67, 71, in the college catalogue of ’97. The reader will please note that we lead the list of studies and courses. We are at the top, have always been there, and always will. Our faculty consists of President Washburn, Dr. Bucher, and of course we will not forget Prof. Charles F. Kenyon, lab. assistant and general “ get-there-or-die man.” In passing, Kenyon has an office on the left side of the chem. lab., next to the centre hood. Visitors admitted once in a great while. We consider ourselves fortunate, the favored ones, as we always are, in having with us such an instructor as Dr. Bucher. If it were pardonable to eulogize, we would with a will. Dr. Bucher has our respect and confidence. We have a well-equipped laboratory, although the roof does leak. Everything considered, the college has done well by us, but we could still utilize many things. We are not jealous of the Physics crowd, even if they do own Lippitt Hall. In closing let us say once more “We are the people,” free sul- phuric-acid soda water forever, and long life to the Chemical course! ! “ Hullo, there ! No. 312,896. What, you back here!” said the clerk in the packing room of the B and L, microscope manufactories. “Take me out at once,” replied a weak voice all smothered in cotton, “and carry me to the repair shop, for I’ve no time to lose.” “So they used you roughly; did they, old fellow? Come now, sit on the shelf and tell me what you saw and where you have been, while I see what is the matter.” “Well,” began the microscope in the same weak voice, “when you packed me to be sent, and took me down to the station, some- one stuck a big tag on me, and I never knew what it said. After I had traveled a great distance I was thrown off at Kingston, R. I., and struck wrong side up on the platform. Someone who was there paid the express bill, and grumbled because it was so large ; while I was glad when he gave me to a big boy with a rough and ready voice, and I was carried off up a hill. I liked that boy, and I knew he was getting ten cents an hour, because he worked so carefully.” “The next morning I was unwrapped by a lady who took me out of my box. Then I found myself in a small, cheap, wooden building of one room. Several students were there at the time. She said I was the brightest of them all, and soon a boy was directed to come and take me. It is to him that I owe my first peep at the outside world. He was a green fellow, grabbed me by my nose piece, nearly breaking it off, and set me down on his desk with a thud. He then scraped some green stuff from a piece of bark, mounted it, and turned on the highest power, only to have it ordered away by the professor in charge. “ ‘ Protococus is a unicellular plant,’ the instructor was saying ; ‘but, Oh my! Just look for yourself and see these little green masses floating around. Only to think that these are plants ! There is one dividing into two — no, it is two; but listen, the process of reproduction is by cell division. Yes, now you have it all, the Ontogeny or life history.’” ‘“On what side of the tree does this plant grow?’ the professor asked, and the same naughty boy whispered ‘on the outside. ' Upon taking another peep his eyes became tired, and I was given to a girl who spilled HC1. upon my objective the first thing; this had to be wiped off by a particular kind of paper. She then looked at some yeast plants. These are nearly colorless bodies, and often I saw one with a large bud on it which eventually became another plant.” “One night I began to grow very warm and felt uneasy, when I heard someone cry ‘Fire! Fire!’ I knew positively that it was the botanical laboratory, and sure enough it was. The hose-cart was soon brought by the Sophomores, and a stream of water flooded the room. I was taken to a large stone building for safety. Someone put me under a shelf, and nobody knew where I was until one day a young man came in to study bacteriology ' . I was hauled over the coals in fine style, and soon had to view the much dreaded microbes. He was very careless and sloppy, never dreaming they might injure me, but always disinfecting his knife with which he transferred them. Even this excitement grew monotonous, and when the histology class was formed the instructor said: ‘Well, my friend, you do look worn out, you surely need a rest.’ So here I am. What! all ready to go back? Now, box me up, an d I will go over my journey again.” ctenftftc, This course is offered to those students who desire a general edu- cation. It is not by any means the most difficult course offered, as some of the subjects given might lead one to think. It embraces many subjects, and it sometimes happens that several students of the same year have nothing in common. The paths of this course which are most frequently trodden, are, botany, physics, chemistry, and general biology ; of which physics seems to be the most thorny. The present Senior class seemed to have a special affection for chemistry in their junior year; indeed, in the winter term they were so constantly in the chemical labora- tory that it was impossible to enter that building at any time of the day without meeting some of them. We think this example shows how the chemistry has been appreciated by former students. It has been said that the scientific course is the one to take if a student wishes to have his or her own way, and it is a significant fact that nearly all the young ladies graduate as scientific students. The work required in this course is not difficult, many students having no more than fifteen hours, the greater part of which is laboratory work. Of course there are others who take more hours and hardqr work, one student whom we have in mind has nineteen hours a week, twelve of which are devoted to art work and wood carving; we are glad to say that all do not have to work so hard. These are the chief characteristics of the scientific course, and they are considered— by the students— to be very good indeed, for there are few people who do not like to haye their own way, and many who do not enjoy hard work, and these are well suited to be “ Scientific.” Perhaps this is the reason that the number of scien- tific graduates is increasing each year. ?tt)e Q0rat e opfjomoreeu The room was peaceful and quiet, No signs of danger were near, The class in Physics was listening. The words of wdsdom to hear. When, hark! a noise like thunder Breaks on their startled ears; The frightened class-men shudder, Grow pale, overcome with their fears. They look at the professor in terror. He, brave as a lion and bold, Flings the closed door widely open And rushes out into the cold. His example the class quickly followed. Over chairs, under tables they went — Not until half way across the campus Was their energy entirely spent. When the frightful sound had subsid ed (’Twas worse than the noise of a team), The Sophs, slowly reentered the classroom, And found it was only the steam. And if one asks the Sophomores wise Why they madly rushed for the door, They’ll say ’twas merely for exercise, For Physics, you know, is a bore. Btppt it ' jfyM. D Januar} r , ’97, the legislature granted to the college an appropriation of $45,000 for the erection of a new build- ing. We had been sadly in need of such a building, being very much crowded through lack of enough recitation rooms. One of the rooms intended for students’ living room had to be used for the mechanical drawing class, while physics was taught in an old wooden shanty at the back of the dormitory. Here also was kept the expensive physical apparatus. For a long time the State was unwilling to furnish the money, and it was not without a hard fight that it was finally granted. The great plea that was brought to bear upon the legislature was that there was no place in which to keep the government property belonging to the military depart- ment, and it was feared that the government would withdraw their military officer, and their yearly appropriation known as the Morrill Fund. All fear of such a dire calamity has, however, passed away, for we have our building, and much trouble has been taken to pro- vide a place for the protection of the guns. About half the basement and one-half the second floor is devoted to physics, the remaining half of the basement contains the electric lighting plant, consisting of an Armington Sims high speed engine, and a 25 K. W. dynamo; and a 10 H. P. upright engine, and a 10 K. W. dynamo. This is also appropriated by the physical department. A whisper was at one time circulated that the whole building was to be used for physics, but somehow half of it was saved for other purposes, and we secured a room for the library, one for English, one for agriculture, and one for the use of the young women students. The cadets were fortunate in securing the top floor for a drill hall. About a month after the fall term opened the library was ready to receive the books then in our possession, so they were transferred by the students from the old wooden shanty, where they had been kept since the disastrous fire in the dormitory three years ago. Many more books have been added since, so that now we have a fairly well stocked library. Much attention has been paid to French and German, and a considerable part of our stock consists of books in those languages. They have never been read, and probably never will be, but they present quite an imposing appear- ance with their nice, new, unsoiled bindings. Our works of fiction are few, but good, but we think that the value and attractiveness of the library would be greatly enhanced by the addition of a great many more to our stock. The books are all catalogued on the card catalogue plan, and, to those who are initiated into the mysteries of its workings, it seems not to give so much trouble as one would expect ; but to the uninitiated it is a confusion of confusions. However, it is the latest fad, and, as we must be up to date at any cost, we are perfectly satisfied with it ; but when we want a book we walk around the shelves until we find it. We use the drill hall as a gymnasium as well as we can with the small outfit that we have. The prospects of having a complete out- fit are not very good at present, for we are told that to provide all that is necessary, other departments would have to be robbed. We have an outfit for playing basket ball, but the girls are the only ones who have an opportunity to play, for during the only hours which the boys have for playing the faculty or the Grange hold their meetings in the chapel underneath, and we are not allowed to play such a noisy game, because we disturb the meetings. We will not kick, however, but will accept with thankfulness the few crumbs which fall to our lot. Jn QYlemortam, Where is now that gassy party that last year we used to know, Gathered round the second table, Tennyson, Chaucer, all the go, While at all the other tables everyone was hushed with awe. How with bated breath we tried to catch some crumb from learn- ing’s store. What a wondrous store of knowledge was unfolded to our ears. Every time we heard them chinning we were almost moved to tears. And when some one spoke with feeling of the Canterbury tales, From one place arose some laughter, others agonizing wails. When in chapel one fine morning Mr. Drake a notice read, One great member of that party felt like punching someone’s head. And other members, also, seemed struck with great surprise, As though they’d never heard before of that club, great and wise. Now, like the ancient nations of intellectual might, This celebrated Chaucer club has vanished from our sight. ’Tis gone, but in our hearts and minds sad memories linger still ; With thankfulness that ’tis no more, our hearts at mealtimes fill.

Their bravery might have cost them dear, but, by the time they were nearly exhausted, a fisherman came to their rescue and carried them ashore. (Breaf (Vfttnbs (Run in tfyt Cfamtef. Scene in Room 21.

Ip lTHRETlCS, as an established line of student effort, were E 4 V introduced in our college, when, in 1892, a few spirited individuals organized themselves into an athletic associa- tion, which in the succeeding years has gradually been placed on a more secure basis by the student body. Many difficulties have been faced, but our association has proven itself equal to the emergencies, and as a result of toilsome labors has become one of the most prominent organizations in State College athletics. It is greatly to our credit that we have developed teams that have been able to cope with others far superior in training, and have held them down to small scores, and in a number of cases have turned the game against them. In base-ball we feel that our greatest progress has been made, and, with the combined effort of faculty and students, hope, in suc- ceeding years, to place teams on the diamond that R. I.

The April wind was blowing gently over the hills and through the valleys. It was the glad awakening from the long, dismal, dreary winter. The leaves had not appeared, but the tiny buds were ready to burst forth when the rains and sunshine had coaxed them a little more. Everything was fresh and clear. Could one but be thankful for living? But there is another side. Human nature is the same, no matter what the weather. When the sun shines the very brightest, there are aching hearts and passionate tempers. They do not wait for a cloudy day to manifest them- selves. A girl came away from the house at the foot of the hill, and walked slowly up the road to her favorite seat — a large, flat stone, at the bottom of the stone wall which separated the roadway from the fields on the hillside beneath her. Her. mood was not a pleas- ant one. She always came here when there was anything troubling her. The pines above her usually murmured some sweet, soothing story in their own sad language, and she was comforted. It seemed as though she understood them. She gazed about her, but did not appreciate the beauty of her surroundings. It was plain that she was very much agitated, and she held, in her hand, a letter, which had been opened. Away in the west Mt. W achuset loomed up, big and round. The tiny house at the top was plainly visible. Further away, in New Hampshire, the mountains were enveloped in a charming purple haze. Trees, trees, hills and blue sky, were all that could be seen. “The idea of their writing me such a letter! Why do they ask me to care for these children? They know perfectly well that I have more now than I can do. It does not seem as though I could give up everything. Was it wrong for me to make such rigid plans, with no thought of their ever being broken?” Alice Hadly was a pretty, interesting girl of eighteen. When about to enter college she was called home to live with her step- mother on the farm. It was a bitter disappointment to her, but she tried not to drift backward. By studying she kept her mind alert and open. But another burden had been added. They were going to send the motherless grandchildren of her step-mother here for her to care for. She did rebel against it — out here alone — but when she returned to the house she was quite submissive. The sunshine and fresh air certainly had good effect upon her bitter mood. The children were received some days later. Alice put forth every effort to reconcile herself to her fate, and to be kind and patient. But it was very hard work. Her life was a daily torture. No one in the house was in sympathy with her aims and desires. The atmosphere was cold and uncongenial. " How can I study when there is always someone at my elbow to say cheeringly: ‘What good’ll them things ever do yer?’ It is worse than horrible ! ” This girl was intellectual and imaginative. Of course the people around her did not understand. They had never been accustomed to looking at life from any other than the bread-and-butter stand- point. Her mind must have an outlet in some manner. There was no one to converse with. No cultured mind with which she could commune, so she wrote. Her desk was filled with stories. She sent one to a magazine, simply for the sake of knowing that she had tried. She expected it to be rejected, but hoped they would not say “Returned with thanks.” But it was not so. The story was accepted, and accompanied by a very kind note from the editor. It was rare, and her first story too. But it meant so much to her. It encouraged her to try again. Up to this time she had been quite hopeless. One man had told her to read the lives of eminent men and women, to see that they had reached no great height until they had suffered. Her reply was defiant and pointed: “I have, and noticed that in almost every instance they had environment and hereditary culture in their favor. How do you expect me to con- centrate my mind upon ‘ higher things ’ in this social atmosphere of mental depravity?” She kept on, however, with her writing. Many of her stories gained a market. She lived a new life now. The home people were proud of her work. Proud, now ! They had done all in their power to retard and discourage her, but, now that she had accom- plished an end by her unaided efforts, they congratulated them- selves that they had done so much. The fuller, deeper seriousness of life now appealed to her. She knew that, unless she put out a supreme effort, her life would ad- vance no further. She studied and worked, all for a definite object. The incongruities of the home life were easier to bear with this greater light in the distance. The life was suddenly changed in the sleepy farm home. Her grandmother’s children were sent to their father’s sister. Alice was alone. She was free. A feeling of remorse came over her as she thought how often she had dared to wish herself free. “ My hateful, selfish disposition ! How unhappy I must have made them all.” When affairs were settled, Alice found herself penniless, with the exception of the money received from her stories. She was obliged to go to work, but there was little she was fitted for. A wealth y aunt wished to keep her and introduce her into society, but Alice’s independent spirit revolted at the idea. For two years she worked in an office, among dry, prosy books. Her evenings and holidays were spent in study and writing. Her stories grew in favor, and she w T as nearing her goal. It was a happy day when she left the office for the last time. Her examinations, for entrance to one of our most noted female colleges, were passed successfully. Her way was clear, at last. There is a school and home in one of our large cities, where young men and women are educated for nearly every department in life. Great care is exercised in accepting students. Many who are not poor, yet are not rich enough to obtain a liberal education, are helped here. Respectable poverty is the hardest to bear. At the head of this grand work is a woman under thirty-five years of age. It is the girl, who, years ago, made such a desperate struggle for her advancement. Her money is the financial basis of the school; her talent and intellect the life of many restricted youths. Did not her first story open a wide field ? Who says we have no opportunities? N. H. P.
