Sn troduction , Merciless Critics: @ NCE more the Grist appears for your considera- tion, and ere you bury yourself in its contents we pray you to tarry in your impatience for a little chat with the editors. In regard to the scope of this Annual we want it dis- tinctly understood that we are in no respect rivals of the College Catalogue. We will try not to bore you with any long prosy sketches regarding early history of the insti- tution, or with any suggestions of the dry unending slav- ery of the class-room. So we bid you throw away all thoughts of cramming and final exams, and to begin with a free and careless mind the perusal of that true por- trayer of college life, its annual. Man)- weary months ago five gay, self-confident Juniors met to begin the great task of the year. Since that time they have lost the thoughtless gayety of their merry youth, the heavy load of responsibility upon their shoul- ders having caused a look of thoughtful gravity to ap- pear upon their once unclouded brows. In the prosecu- tion of their Herculean task they have been supported only by visions of Senior Electives and Snap Courses which will sometime be within their grasp. Among the serious duties of our positions we have occasionally found stray scraps of humor [?] which we could enjoy if we had the time. Our Board meetings have been the occasion of much controversy, both friendly and otherwise. Vast amounts of sarcasm at different times have been used by some member who has been foiled in some pet measure. We have duly appreciated our duty in the matter of grinds, and have endeavored to dispose of the question in the most scientific manner. If by roasting one person we could make twenty laugh, we have thought the game worth the whistle and have proceeded to do it thor- oughly. It would amuse you perhaps to suggest that the Grist was a firm opponent of bluffing and a model of veracity. But consider that we have passed the fiery ordeal of the reviewing committee from whose merciless hands nothing escapes, except the barest most literal truth. It was the fear of this ordeal that has filled our minds during the year and restrained our too ambitious pens. But much suffering reader, do not lose all faith in human nature, there is still some honest}- left, for the Grist stands as the exponent of undoubted veracity and the ardent opposer of all forms of bluffing. We will not make any plaintive boasts as to the hard work that we have done ; we have no desire to attract commiseration; it was our business and we did it as best we were able. Several new departures will perhaps be noticed about the Grist in its general appearance and con- tents. We hope that they will please you, for we have endeavored to publish a book which would at least ap- proach the excellence of former years. Naturally we would be pleased to receive your ap- proval but will candidly inform you that we will not be annoyed in the least b}’ any- darts of criticism which you may possibly hurl at us since we have taken pains to clothe ourselves with the most impenetrable armor. We hope that we have succeeded in breaking the ice, and now invite you to feel perfectly at home in the following pages. fflfode island College of Agriculture and 97 ec icinlc Arts. ' Corporation.

The long-contemplated new courses were put in operation at the beginning of the fall term. The Freshman class was, as expected, small, but the Preparatory division was gratifyingly large. In scholarship the students have made a better record than ever before. With the Freshmen of next year we hope the college will enter upon an era of large classes. There have been a number of changes in the Faculty. Miss Bosworth has been pursuing studies in Germany, and her place has been filled by Miss Smith, Wellesley, ’90. Mr. M. H. Tyler, Amherst, ’97, has been made proctor and instructor in mathematics. Mr. J. S. Allen, Jr., Brown, ’98, has been appointed instructor in history and political science. Mr. Frank Craig, Worcester Poly- technic Institute, ’98, succeeded Mr. Clark as assistant in mechan- ics. Mr. Barlow, University of Vermont, and Mr. Marshall, Massachusetts Institute of Technology ’97, have been assistants in Dr. Field’s department. Mr. Barlow left the college to accept a position in Kansas University. Mr. Card, Cornell, ’92, began his work here this year- as professor of horticulture. Since the building of E ' ppitt Hall, the various departments have enjoyed increased facilities for their work, and that crowded, cramped condition, so well remembe red by the older students, is a thing of the past. A new barn has been added to the equipment of the agricultural department, greatly increasing its facilities for instruction, and making it possible to furnish the dairy products necessary at the boarding hall. It is a handsome structure and well adapted for its purpose. At the beginning of the year a Committee on College Activi- ties, modelled after the now defunct Amherst Senate, was placed in charge of the social and other activities of the student body. Jt is composed of a Faculty committee and a representative from each of the four classes. Social life has made considerable progress. The annual Military Ball was managed in a praiseworthy manner by the bat- talion officers. In the winter term Miss Putnam’s Expression classes gave a recital which reflected credit on the students and teacher. The Junior Musicale proved of great benefit to The Grist. The character and success of the entertainment render it a source of pardonable pride to the class of 1900. In the early part of the spring term the Glee Club gave a concert which showed careful training. The general status of athletic efforts has greatly improved. In the fall term the football team was uniformly successful. More interest and confidence is felt in the Athletic Association than ever before. In baseball, although the material on hand is perhaps not equal to last year’s, there is, nevertheless, an evident disposi- tion to work hard for the team. Some of the old clubs have died a natural death, but the suc- cess of the Library Club and Glee Club is encouraging. The two religious societies have been active during the year, and different speakers have delivered addresses at the afternoon chapel services on Sunday. We are glad to record in The Grist these evidences of pros- perity, and hope that they are but forerunners of greater progress in the future. Scene 7J i e ‘Dairy Two Men standing in the centre of the room — A group of opossums in one corner — absolutely no other scenery. One Man — “This must stop. I can’t enjoy my Sunday evening walk about the grounds with my little friend, because such sounds break the evening stillness in the vicinity of Watson House. I heard from headquarters that this must cease. Let me hear no more of it.’’ (An opossum comes up and slowly wags his tail, but receives no attention.) The Other Man — (with show of dignity) — “ I, as one of the chief originators of said noise cannot possibly see how it concerns you ’’ (Exit Man No. One). The Other Man — (alone and wringing his hands, from which drops the blood of two hellbenders, three chickens and one hen). “What shall I do — shall my character be spoiled in the making ? Shall I be drawn into it against my will ? I will confess nil — Nothing will I withhold — It is the only way.” (Exit amid the smiles of the opossums). the Classes Senior C ass Officers B. E.

Senior Class Jfcistory W HEN the organization now known as the Class of ’99 first descended on the venerable quiet of Kingston, few, if any, of its members had the slightest idea as to what would befall them. Our first sensations were those of awe and dread. Every one we met seemed to be a personage of great im- portance. The disdainful smiles that greeted us from every quar- ter kept us fully aware of a humiliating fact, our utter insignifi- cance. But in spite of all this our great desire was for knowledge, and the studious life we then led, helped us to forget our youth and unimportance. How far this most laudable desire has been real- ized we do not care to say, but chapel lectures and other sad ex- periences have taught some lessons which we expect to retain. But we manfully conquered our peculiar difficulties, and after we obtained our military suits, we were like all other Freshmen ; it would have taken a lengthy fishpole to have reached us. How- ever, our first year was a successful one, for we had athletic vic- tories, and we also built that architectural masterpiece, the old drill shed, which was the forerunner of Eippitt Hall. Just how far this latter building was modelled after the original production of our class, modesty restrains us from telling. It was one bright September day when we returned as Sopho- mores, conscious that we had “crossed the awful chasm,” to bor- row our Milton’s phrase. Of course it devolved on ’99 to teach the Freshmen a few necessary things, the first of which was physical inspection. Soon after the upper classmen coaxed the “Freshies” into a football game, in which ’99 taught them some wholesome, practical lessons. These simple instructions caused our unfortunate pupils to look up to us with considerable awe. In fact the respect for the upper classes was much more apparent then. than now. We respectfully suggest that a little improvement in this matter would not be out of order. In the winter an epidemic of mumps and measles spread among us , and not a few of our number suffered from the dread diseases. With one more lesson to the Freshmen we ended our second year of college life. In our Junior year, we held two well-planned receptions, con- quered German — more or less — and Calculus. At one time our instructor in German found four modest students in the back row. Their general excellence in class work entitled them to front seats, where they served as examples the remainder of the term. ’99 was always said to be a remarkable class in mathematics ; no one was surprised at our excellent work in Calculus — a work which was not accomplished, however, without a few slight mistakes. We also published The Grist, which had such unparalleled success that we are thinking of printing a second edition. Now, we have nearly ended our work here. This last year has been a happy one and we have thoroughly enjoyed it. Wi th ’99 at the head of military affairs, all feel that peaceful security which springs from well-grounded confidence. Our mechanical men are prepared to solve any problem in hydraulics, run a blast furnace, or build bridges in the most approved manner. So we feel sure that all the mechanics about the place is well cared for, and that the head of our army has no fear of a loss of the depart- mental honor or of an embalmed beef scandal. At last, not without some regret, we bid adieu to The Grist. Our expectations now await Commencement. As we look forward into the future, We hear a voice you cannot hear, Which says we cannot slay ; We see a hand you cannot see That beckons us away. Senior Dignity I T was on the night of the 16th of December. The sweet strains of music were still lingering in the ears of the students, as they made their way from Lippitt Hall to their rooms. Oc- casionally an air from one of the selections just played would float upon their ears as it was whistled by some musical genius and the Juniors were congratulating themselves upon the unparalleled success of the evening’s performance. Except for the occasional boiler explosion, fire alarm, or the croak of a Freshman, there was naught to disturb the blissful reveries which all were enjoying. Even Tip Tyler was visiting Jim Allen instead of making his customary rounds of inspection. Suddenly the walls begin to shake and tremble. Book racks tumble, picture frames rattle, and the whole atmosphere is con- vulsed by a noise, such that the roar of cannon, the echos of Ladd’s voice when heard in the reading room, or even the chatter of Eldred’s teeth when the Dr. called him into the office, are not to be compared with it. Those who are brave enough, cautiously look out of their doors to ascertain, if possible, the cause. But the everwatchful Tip only knows that it is an unlawful racket, and that it is his duty to stop it at once. He therefore launches forth on a tour of investigation, and locating the scene of action in room 32, makes his way there P. D. Q. Thrusting open the door, his astonished gaze meets the cause of the great upheaval of forces. Two grave and reverend brethren of ’99, not satisfied with the entertainment of the evening, are adding a sequel- At the farther end of the room, the brother from Point Judith is acting the part of the Prima Donna of the evening, while the brother from Paw- tucket is pacing ceaselsssly back and forth, each step of his iron heel shaking the building anew, and presenting the singer with ♦That is, with great alacrity. bouquets innumerable. At first, a frown of disgust settles on the features of the proctor, then, as he takes in the humor of the situa- tion, it changes into a smile such as only he can give. He pushes into the room, grasps a frightened Senior in either hand, and gently leading them toward the door, remarks in his persuasive voice, “COME BOYS, YOU HAD BETTER GO TO YOUR ROOM.” “■Go • TO YOUR ROODS ' junior Class I,ucy Harriet Putnam, our long suffering honorary mem- ber. We call upon her whenever we are in need, or discour- aged, or in debt, and she proves a valuable friend by scolding, exhorting or encour- aging, as the case de- mands. She has a great fondness for Bos- ton, and leaves us without any warning at the most unaccount- able times. Boston is an attractive place. Edith Goddard is a cheerful jollier from the word go. She is the great authority in the English class, where she delivers with great volubility crammed Chaucerian phrases and scraps of old mythology. Her social progress during the past two terms has been most marked, especially manifested by the number of her evening “At Homes.” Rowena Hoxie STEERE is a young lady with a very inde- pendent spirit As witness, her cuts in Trig, and other cuts which she has distributed with no less unsparing hand. She has always been a day student and a resident of Alton. Bertha Douglas Tucker is a typical conservative, with a mint of lofty ambition. She takes pride in her class standng, although she strikes something occasionally in which she does not capture an A. A great stickler fo r class honor and dignity. Morton Robinson Cross. This slim youth is a professional photographer. Formerly a leader in athletics, he has retired from active service this year. When he weighs one hundred and sixty pounds he expects to pitch for Yale. This is his last year at Kingston, but we bow to the inevitable, for we have been aware that he was staying here only to get his growth. Elizabeth May Park hurst i s a young lady whom Wickford is proud to claim. She is an ex- pert stenographer and a great lover of one hour per day courses. Although she has her Kuena Hoxie Sleere. share of College pat- Bertha Douglas Tucker, riotism, we fear that other institutions claim part of her allegiance. Ralph Nelson Soule, our great athlete. On the ball field no one has more “push” and “pull” than he. For years he has been in training, not only in the gymnasium, but also in mat- ters of diet. He eats a plenteous supply of crackers and milk, when they are to be had, and at other times meat. His recipe for becoming stalwart is based upon the principle that eating fat meat makes one fat, therefore eating tough meat makes one tough. J oseph Robert Wilson is a good, all-round fellow, who never makes a fuss. There is but one Morton I ' ouiiison wross. dreadful lack in his Elizabeth May Parkhui t. character and that is, that he doesn’t care for girls. This is de- plorable, but we hope that this vacancy will be well filled some day. There is hope, for he is still young. John Raleigh Eldred, is a jack at all trades. He has considerable artistic ability, is musical in every way, playing all manner of instruments and singing all the popular songs. His great and inordinate love for Chapel is very marked, since he is always the first one in his seat every morn- ing. His motto is — “ Better late than never.” On the ath- letic field he is un- equalled in speed and he catches every ball he touches. I may Ralph Nelson Soule. just mention the fact Joseph Robert Wilson, in passing, as of no importance, that he is a fine student. Anthony Enoch SteerE is a man of promise. For some unknown and unknowable reason, he has learned all his lessons for two weeks ; even to his German. You can’t “ rattle ” him in the English class. He can unravel the knotty intricacies in the family connections of those confusing English kings and queens, without a mistake. Robert Joseph Sherman, fa miliarly known as ‘‘Ancient,” is the most venerable personage in our col- lection of geniuses. His most ardent pas- sion lies in the pur- suit of game and fish, in the capture of which he is an ex- John Raieiffh Eidred. pert. Equally famed Anthony Enoch Steere. as a “ crowder,” he amuses himself and destroys the comfort of others by an extremely energetic use of his violin He threatens us with his departure at the end of this year, a loss which we could hardly endure. Amos Langworthy Kenyon is a substantial individual with pessimistic tendencies. He is the lone star of the Agri- cultural Course among the naughty naughts and a specialist in the French and Ger- man languages. He never makes himself unduly prominent and never runs for office, two extremely good qualities. Levi Eugene Wightman is one of the most original char- acters Scituated among us. It is a Robert Joseph Sherman most amusing sight to Amos Langworthy Kenyon. see him whip a certain new course “ Freshie ” into line, a recrea- tion which he especially enjoys. This spring he has worked hard to become a crack base-ball fiend, which one would naturally think a “Swinch,” since he is cracked in several other respects. His is a most supple wit, capable of great elasticity. Charles Clark Cross is a youth who is amply endowed with several qualities popularly supposed to be monopolized by his Satanic Majesty. We can guarantee that he will never become crazy, since his reme- dy for all mathemati- cal difficulties lies in “rationalization.” This year actuated by some freakish impulse Levi Eugene Wightman. he has abandoned the Charles Clark Cross, companionship of the residents of the dormitory for the wilds of West Kingston. In regard to his future we venture to predict that he will never fail for lack of energy. Charges Noyes Wheeler is a faddist of the most pro- nounced type. He wanders through his courses in a most re- markable manner, always menacing the study committee with the assertion that he will take Stenography and Typewriting if he has to give up everything else. He always take the lectures in ad- vanc ed physics, which naturally are the most important parts of the course. “Charlie” has aspira- tions in the chemical Charles Noyes wheeler, line, where we hope he will find something to satisfy his affinities. Leroy Weston Knowles is a nondescript character in whose classification one could not venture any farther than genus homo, order Cumana. Beyond that only a few isolated facts can be brought to light. Last year he made a position back of the line on the football team. Rumors were spread about at the be- ginning of the term that he was a candi- date for second base. At this the other can- didates all gave up the ghost, and since we could not play a one man team, the management reluct- antly gave him notice to retire. Henry Maxon Henry Maxon Brig ' btman. BRIGHTMAN is a chap Ruth Hortense Janies. with the most marked commercial instincts. Those who have heard him discourse with great gusto upon the merits of the Regal Shoe, will never question his business proclivities. He has had a big opening for such talents as he might possess in managing The Grist this year. Being mechanical, he spends much time in that department, where he “astonishes the natives.’ ' Ruth Hortense James is a Junior with much latent talent for the study of medicine. She is an adept upon all heart diseases, having made many in- teresting and success- ful experiments in that line. She also finds botany interest- ing as having rela- Arthnr Earle Munroe. atiouship tO the Study John James Fry. of medicine. Trig has no charms for her. Arthur Earle Munroe is the prosperous, strong man of our class. Bicycling, especially upon the Sabbath, seems to agree with him His favorite ride is along the H road, which is always lined with roses without thorns. John James Fry hails from East Greenwich to whose peace- ful haunts he occasionally retires for rest and recreation. “ Jack ’’ has always been prominent in athletics and at present holds the captaincy of the foot-ball team. He has distinguished himself this year as class president and as a member of the C. A. C. All things considered he is a most reputable member of the class, barring a few little “ pet hobbies ’’ in which he indulges occasion- ally. On account of excessive diffidence Mr. Fry declines to allow his likeness to be exposed to the vulgar gaze of the public- Lenora Estelle Stillman is pre-eminently, first, last and all the time an unremitting grind. One would expect the sudden collapse of the Universe if she should come into the Calculus with her problems undone. She especially abhors all attempts to “ try for speed.” Truly a prodigy for learning. Soph omoro Class Officers. A. A. DENICO, President. C. S. BURGESS, Vice-President. H. D. SMITH. Treasurer. A. B.

Sopho @ NE year has passed since we first met you in the ’99 Grist. Our class has lost several members, and among them we especially mourn the absence of “ Dingleberry ” and “ Mascot. " One day early in the Fall term we met for the first time, as Sophomores, to select those who were to be our guiding stars throughout the trials and tribulations of Sophomore life. We elected the following : For President we chose Denico, a man noted for speed on a wheel, especially when going towards Wakefield. He hails from the Pier. Next we chose a Vice President, Burgess, who is noted in athletics ; and whereas he carried sweaters last fall, he is now Captain of our college “ Nine.’’ He comes from Providence and is generally known as ‘‘Crook.’’ We then elected our Scituate Smith to care for the Treasury and keep the Vice President straight. He is very fond of study. Out of the many Shermans in our class we selected oiie from Kingston, near “ Chickenville,’’ for our recorder of events ; recognizing in her ability as type- writer the essential qualities of a Secretary. The class had very good health throughout the year, owing to the work of Prof. Scott. Contrary to the wishes of some o the class he persisted in giving us ‘‘Physics” throughout the year, four times a week. During the winter term he also gave us “ Shocks,” but in spite of this rough treatment some are even now contemplating the continuance of the course another year. In the Spring term we commenced Chemistry with Dr. Bucher, but at present have shown no very decided Chemical affinities, although Miss A. B. Sherman and Miss Briggs were told that H2O consisted of gases, yet when they tried to light it under the Hood it would not burn. But they are beginners in Chemistry and should not be censured since Munro, who is considered one of the smartest Juniors, did the same thing in his third year. Miss E. A. Sherman says the H2S generators under the Hood are active. Another member of the class, wishing to determine the odor of Cl. heated some cone. HCL, in an open dish on his desk. He now knows the odor and the reason that Dr. Bucher cautioned the class to work under the Hood. The aforementioned chemist’s name is Andrews. That we are a very intelligent class is shown by the fact that the entire class was excused from Ex. in English and French in the Fall term ; we have reason to be proud of our athletic record for we have always had men on the college ball teams ; the Glee Club, which was formed for the first time this year, has found our services invaluable. Remarkably little trouble has been caused this year by mem- bers of the two new classes, but the thanks should go to Mr. Tyler, who has taught them their place in College life. We have had many trials during the year, but we remember that, “ All’s well that ends well,” and will now bid you good-bye till we meet you as Juniors in the ' 01 Grist. OFF ON A BAT.

CLASS YELL: We have none, we say nothing and saw wood. f HIS class entered the College under very different conditions from former Freshman classes. Owing to the new course of study adopted last year, the entrance examinations were much harder than previous Freshmen had to pass and the course of study for the Freshmen this year is fully as hard as that of the Sophomores. This is the reason for the small size of our class, it being the smallest in the College. After examinations were over and schedules arranged we set- tled down to hard work, which did not give us much time in which to be homesick. The class was organized in due time and all was well until the Junior Reception. The speech which our class president made on that occasion will long be remembered by him if not by others. He would liked to have published it, but the managers of the Grist could not give us more than ten pages for it, and rather than have it condensed we decided to leave it out altogether. One surprising thing about our first term here was that none of us got a ducking. From the talk of the older students, we would not have been surprised at any time to have received an exhibition of college spirit in the shape of a shower-bath, but for some reason we did not even get sprinkled. Perhaps the fatherly watchfulness of our genial proctor dampened their spirits and so kept our skins dry. Of all our studies the first term, probably no recitations were enjoyed as much as those in Physiography. Dr. Washburn always had some interesting story to illustrate the matter we were study- ing, and we all were sorry when the course was finished. Some amusing things were apt to happen in Physics, too . One day, the most sedate member of the class became “vicious” and the same day another described how to separate a crystalloid from a “celluloid”. Such little things, however, are an interesting diversion, for recitations become dull when everyone knows his lesson well. As a class we have a pretty good record, but we all have our failings. Ferry is liable to be out at all times of night, sometimes getting in just in time for breakfast; “Doc.” goes on a “toot” every drill day and we are not able to stop him ; Reynolds is always short and shows no signs of improving ; “Max” was un- used to restraint, so he moved; Kenyon never says anything so he keeps out of trouble, but Pitkin, although you may not have thought so, is always light-headed and Cornell and Morton have been known to go calling in the middle of the week. Morton, by the way, is a special, who got side-tracked here the first part of the winter term and has been taken care of by the Freshmen ever . since. The first secretary we elected had more trouble than a married man. You see his watch stopped and he could not record the minutes as was his duty. A meeting was called to decide whether to give him a new watch to go by or to give him the “go by”. As there were but thirteen cents in the treasury we voted that it would be unlucky to buy a hew watch. Max has been acting strangely, he has all his notes type-writ- ten. No one knew that Max did that kind of work before, but he has been seen a number of times recently with a new ’99 model type writer of the most approved type. His case will be investi- gated and reported on later. The winter term is now over and we are beginning to think of warmer weather and outdoor sports. May we all experience more sunshine, physically and mentally, next term than we did last, and finish our year as well as we started it. Q. E. D. A FRIEND IN NEED.

YELL — Brown and White, White and Brown, 1903 Are Never Down ! N the twenty-third of September, in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and ninety-eight, witnessed at “ Ye Col- lege” at Kingston, a most extraordinary gathering of would be students, known as the “ Preps.” Yes, we are the sur- vivors of that original congregation, and although we have not much of a history thus far, we have demonstrated our ability, by being the first class to arrange and successfully carry out a “ sleigh ride.” Although much was done by some of the older classes to prevent our going we finally started out, rather late, but returned safe and sound, being kindly cared for by our ever- ready Proctor, who had a vigilant eye upon his little lambs. We have not participated in athletics to any great extent thus far, although we contributed somewhat to the success of the foot-ball team last season, but hope to be more successful in the future. As for our studies, it can be said we have done compara- tively good work, considering we have been pressed rather hard. But to leave such mundane affairs and come to our subject, ‘ ‘ The Immortals. ’ ’ We have several Jacks at all trades among us. We have a “ Barber,” who, although not a professional, has done some very good work, considering it had to be “ Chace’d ” after. Another good point about our class is that we are never in want of food, having on hand at least a 11 Peck ” of ” ham ” and Mor- tons of “ Rice ” than we “ Con- way,” also being constantly sup- plied by the “ Gardiner,” with whom the “ Tillinghast ” to go on indefinitely, and the product is finally prepared by our 11 Cooke.” We are, however, misled in the anticipation of our dinner by the sound of a “Bell,” which " Pierces’’ our ears, coming from the " Church ” with the two “Crosses,” lately constructed by our " Carpenter.” But we shoulder our disappointment as we are very good soldiers, and return to our study room with our " Flagg ” flying, where the hum of our voices is to the tutor as the click of the " Loom-is ” to the practiced weaver, and resume our labors, which we hope are not in vain, but will bring us on an even standing, if not on a higher one than some of our predeces- sors. Well, I think I have told you everything worth mention- ing this year, but as we advance, I suppose we shall encounter many experiences, and next year, when w ' e appear as Freshmen, as we hope to do, we will " Duf-fy ” anyone to give a more com- plete and interesting account of their previous year’s work than we of our coming Freshman year.

Tj ig jCibrary Club. f ins club was organized at the beginning of the college year, to fill the place formerly occupied by the old Research Club. It enjoys a reputation for exclusiveness, since its member- ship is mainly recruited from the higher classes and the faculty. The method of work taken up by the members cousists in a sys- tematic review of the leading magazines and periodicals, together with a review of the most prominent books as they appear from the press. Different magazines are assigned to the several mem- bers who, at the semi-monthly meetings give a synopsis of their contents and a detailed review of the more salient articles. During the year the club has held meetings regurlarly, which have been conducted with much pleasure and profit to the members. Its career on the whole has been very successful and we join with the mem- bers in crying, “ Dong live the Library Club.” 2 . V . C. A. W. M. HOXIE,. H. D. SMITH, R. W. PITKIN, A. L.

Recollections of the R izzard f HE heavy snow storm of Sunday and Monday, February twelve and thirteenth completely demoralized passenger traffic on the various railroads. Consequently a number of the students who went home on the Friday night before the storm found it impossible to return to the College before Wednes- day morning. One young man we have in mind, on entering the reading room for the first time after his return, looked around him for a moment like some one just awaked from a long period of dormancy and asked in a stentorian voice: “Does any one know what day it is, or what time it is, or anything about the time what- ever? I have lost track of everything relating to time during this storm.” Now every one knows that all conversation must cease upon entering the reading room, and a look of intense surprise immedia- tely showed itself upon the faces of those who happened to be pre- sent at that time. The librarian looked at the offender with one inquiring glance, which gradually changed to a curious smile. The young mau did not ask any more questions regarding his locality or the time of day, so it was assumed by those present that he had found a suitable answer for one or both of his questions. jCist of Periodicals to be JPound in t ie jCibrari Harper ' s Monthly.

College Athletics f HE Athletic Department of any college is necessarily one which requires much conscientious labor and sacrifice to make it a success; and if properly conducted it cannot fail to be the institution’s greatest pride and glory. In these modern days intellectual life and grade of scholarship are not the only things taken into consideration by a young man about to enter college, and undecided where he will enter; he also studies the athletic records of the different institutions, and is most apt to select one which is prominent on the baseball and football fields. It may confidently be asserted that the college which does not use every effort to promote its athletics has fallen short of its highest usefulness as an educational factor. The responsibility rests alike upon faculty and student body, which should co-operate in the work of placing good teams in the field to compete with neighboring institutions. To attain this result, it is necessary that the students give the Association not only financial aid, but a hearty sympathy and support, which will work wonders. One of the best signs of athletic activity is a large number of candidates for the different teams. Every position should be competed for by several men, thus insuring a strong team and securing good material for future use. Oftentimes an excellent player is found where one would little expect it. This condition also tends to develop a greater number of the students, which is preferable to the production of a few prize athletes. While a healthy spirit of rivalry is greatly to be desired, still the competing schools should be careful that no bad feeling is cre- ated. A spirit of jealousy and spite between two schools defeats the object of athletics and causes many incidents which are after- wards looked upon with regret. The attainment of success necessitates hard work and much sacrifice, but it cannot fail to bring good results ; and if continued, will sooner or lat er place athletics upon a firm basis.

HIS sport lias, ever since the earlier days of the College, been the object of much interest, and a pardonable pride has been taken in the efforts of the team. Hast season our nine was peculiarly successful, winning six out of eight well-fought games. This team, in its individual makeup and team work, was the best nine that has ever repre- sented the College on the diamond during previous years. At the beginning of the season less than half of the old team were in College, and upon these as a nucleus the present team is built. A goodly number of candidates have competed for the various positions and by the regular practice it is hoped the team will make a creditable record for itself. The schedule as given below contains seven games, the first of which was a walkover for the College. Sarnes Scheduled April 22. R. I. C. vs. Bulkeley H. S., 30 — 5 6 — 2 April 29. R. I.

A schedule of five games was played without a defeat. Our record was one which we are proud of and in after years w’e shall look back upon it with pleasure. This year’s team has au advantage which previous teams have always lacked — good, continious coaching. Mr. Marshall Tyler, Amherst, ’97, began his services as one of the college corps of instructors this year, and it was owing to his interest and efficient coaching that the success of our team was made possible. At the beginning of the season only three of the ’97 team were in college. Owing to this state of affairs it was necessary to develop players from new material. From what at the beginning seemed a hopeless task great success was attained, a team being developed which was worthy of the college. This making of a good team from a list of candidates consisting almost entirely of new men, was one of the most encouraging features of the season. Throughout the season the regular team practiced against a strong second one. This was the best possible training and also the means of bringing good substitutes to the front. The great interest of the student body and faculty was shown by a large attendance at the games and by good financial support. FOOT BALL TEAM. C.B. Oct. Oct. Oct Nov. Nov. football MORRISON, Manager.

He was a reliable line bucker, the man for the position. Sherman, ’01, at right guard was a strong player, especially good in defense. Emmet, ’00, at right tackle was an old veteran. His weight and knowledge of the game made the team strong at this point. Cross, ’00, at right end was a good ground gainer and sure tackier. MacKnight, ’03. for a new man was a sturdy centre, who throughout played an honest, aggressive game. Grinueli, ’01, left guard, was a strong player. Hoxie, ’03, left tackle, was the strongest man in the line, and sure of good gains when given the ball. Brooks, ’99, played a clean game at right end. Soule, ’oo, at quarterback was an acquisition. He combined good passing with clever headwork. Fry, ’00, right halfback, was a good runner, quick to notice an opening in the opponents’ line. Knowles, ’00, was a good gainer on end plays in his position as left halfback. As substitutes, Reuter, ’01, Burgess, ’01, andSteere, ’oo, were on hand as backs, while F. Hoxie, ’03, Denico, ’©1 and Maxson, ’02, were held for use in the line, On the whole the condition of athletics shows a very credita- ble advance over the preceding seasons and a considerable rise in school spirit. Citerary Department T)he 3 ci se J llcirm The gloomy robe of night had covered College Hill, All were in bed and everything was still, And when the watchman had finished quite his round The silence was complete, one could not hear a sound. Hardly had he touched the pillow, hardly closed his eyes in sleep When the bell began its ringing, sounded at his very feet. Up he started in a frenzy, throwing coat and sweater on Not stopping for revolver, in a second he was gone. Scarcely had he reached the landing, where was standing A. E. Steere, Shouting with great vigor, something loud, distinct, and clear ; “Oh, Col. Ben. Bosworth come out of your room below And conduct us to the danger, we’re in readiness to go.” The Kerosenes struck a match, Becky and Ladd and Ben, Who went hunting to find his “six choice men.” While he went upon his search with authoritative ire, A sound breaks out upon his ears, the sudden call of fire. Then Owen, always at duty, to the pump house ran in haste, And as soon as he entered, doctored the fire with waste. Morrison in a fine frenzy rushed to the room of Prof. Jim, Stood there vigorously pounding, and shouting into the darkness dim. The Sophs ran to the hose cart, but knowing not where to go. Until the “Watson House” was cried b ' those who always know. When the cart was rushed over the frozen ground, While to the different buildings the students thronged around. “Regal’s” quick inspection produced evidence enough To show the impatient waiters the depth of the wily bluff, Then dispersing quickly, back to their rooms they go, Each inquiring of the other the things they want to know. When the fun was over the proctor did appear, And make a hasty census, to find out who was here. The message was sent to the pump house over the electric wire, Which conveyed with undue warmth the absence of any fire. Much discussion there has been as to the sudden cause Of this great upheaval of physics’ unerring laws. “ ’Tis relays, crossed wires, fire drill,” say some, And theories pile up mountain high, ad infinitum. ZProverbs. Spare the crib and spoil the exams. A Prep and his hair are soon parted. Cut your recitations to fit the position you hold in the estima- tion of the faculty. A ball in the hand is worth two in the air. There’s many a slip ’twixt entrance and graduation. Don’t brag of your marks till you get your report. A hit in time saves the nine. Tjhe Zfwelfth of 9 ovember J T was a glorious day, for it marked the victorious close of the most successful football season of the Rhode Island College. On this date was played with the East Greenwich Academy the game which was of greatest interest to the students. Although in strength their team was not to be compared with the Brown Freshies and Providence High whom we had previously van- quished, still, owing to the old-time rivalry between the College and the Prep. School it was regarded as the most important game of the season. The weather was of the typical football variety, clear, cool and bracing, with hardly any wind to interfere with the game. In the morning the team, accompanied by a large following of enthusi- astic rooters, left the College for the Academy. On the way down much noisy enthusiasm was evident, showing itself by oft- repeated college cries. When the Kingston boys reached the town, they broke up into small parties, some inspecting the Academy and its surroundings, others walking through the streets impatiently awaiting the time of the game. Finally the hour for the line-up arrived, and the two teams ran out on the field loudly cheered by their respective supporters. The college team made a fine showing with their new suits and a full complement of substitutes. The rooters for each faction had chosen opposite sides . of the field, waiting to encourage their players at every gain made. The female portion of the Academy contingent was very noticeable with its gay red flags, which before the game had progressed far, drooped in a most remarkable manner. It is unnecessary to describe at length the game, which through- out was an encouragement to the Kingston students and a reward for constant systematic practice. The ball was in the hands of the college men most of the time and they made good use of it. With irresistible dash, the backs plunged through the opposing lines, making substantial gains every time the ball was put in play. The college boys encouraged by the enthusiastic cheering of their delighted supporters, rushed the ball across the line for twenty points during the game and at the close the ball was in dangerous proximity to the opponents’ line, where a good play would have quickly scored another touchdown. At one time only did the Academy boys offer any effective opposition to the visitors. This was in the second half when they braced up and carried the ball the length of the field, where it was lost on downs. However the college was forced to make a safety, thus giving the Academy players their two points. The college girls, who had started for the Academy in a large barge were tardy and witnessed only th e latter half of the game. On the way home a more noisy and excited crowd could be sel- dom found. The welkin rang with cheer after cheer for the team, for the members who had distinguished themselves, and for our coach, whose perseverance and hard work had made this victory possible. Such was the end of the season in which we had won five suc- cessive victories, not marred by a single defeat. We had put forth the best team of recent years, encouraged hard competition in athletics, and we hope stimulated a more healthy school spirit and love of one’s college which after all is the true end and aim of all inter-scholastic athletic efforts. TJhe jCcist Same f HE campus of one of our New England colleges was dotted with several groups of students, among which were two groups of five each who were representatives of the Sopho- more and Freshman classes. These students were attracting con- siderable attention from the others who were present, because they were making the final arrangements for the game of base ball which was to be played on the following afternoon between the Sophomore and Freshmen classes, and which was to be the last game of the season. Both teams had practiced incessantly for this event and the rivalry between them was of the keenest. Each team was sure of winning the game ; so whenever a Soph w ' ould meet a Freshman, an exciting argument was the result. This it was that caused such a large congregation of students on the campus on that particular afternoon. The conversation was finally brought to a close as the Sophs turned to go away, saying, “ To-morrow we will show up your team by not letting them score one run.” “ We will see about that,” answered a Freshman, while each crowd moved off in a different direction. While the Freshmen were sure of winning, still they were afraid that their pitcher, who had been hit by a batted ball at a practice game a week before, would not be able to play the whole game. ” If he should be compelled to give up before the end,” thought they, ” our chances of winning will be very small.” He had told the captain that he did not feel the effects of his injury, but the captain’s face wore a doubtful look. Belonging to the Freshman class were several young men who seemed never to take any interest in athletics of any kind. They were always to be seen with books in their hands, and appar- ently cared for nothing but study. One of these was Bert Waters and another George Simmons. They of course had not tried for positions on the class team because they could not spare the time for practice. But they were fond of base ball just the same ; and as Bert had been the pitcher for the S ’s before coming to col- lege, he and George would play together for a few minutes each day, unknown to the other members of their class. In a short time Bert had become quite expert at “twirling” and George equally expert at catching. The next day was an ideal one for base ball, and nothing was talked about but the game in the afternoon. It was scheduled to begin at 2 o’clock sharp, and by 1:30 the grand stand and the bleachers were well filled with people from the neighborhood. It was exactly 1:50 when the Sophomore team marched on to the field led by their mascot. A mighty cheer arose from the enthusi- astic spectators, which was repeated five minutes later as the Freshman team appeared. A few moments of practice by each team showed that they were in prime condition. The Sophs won the toss and the Freshmen took their places in the field. “All ready ! Play Ball!” shouted the umpire, and the great game commenced. The Freshman pitcher gave the first man his base on balls which brought forth a cheer from the Sophomores who occupied the benches quite close to the team “Oh, he’s easy” they shouted; “we won’t do a thing to him.” The next two men were struck out, which caused the Freshmen on the opposite side of the field to give three hearty cheers for their pit- cher. The next man hit the ball and reached first base in safety, while the man who was there ran to second. The next man struck out and the Sophomores took the field. The Freshmen did not score, although one man reached third base. The next three innings were played without a score being made by either side. But the Sophs came in from the field at the beginning of the fifth inning with a determined look on their faces, showing that they were determined to make a score. They had noticed in the last inning that the Freshman pitcher was giving out. This encourag- ed them. The first man was struck out, but the second made a hit. The Sophomores yelled themselves hoarse. But when the next batter sent the ball over the center fielder’s head, and never stop- ped running until he reached third base while the man on second base ran home, the crowd went nearly wild with enthusiasm, and shouted and cheered as only an enthusiastic crowd can cheer. But the Sophs were more determined than ever. They pounded the ball all over the field and retired at the end of the inning with a score of five runs to their credit. The face of the Freshman pitcher was now a ghastly white. He told the captain that he had wrenched his arm that was in- jured a week ago, and could not pitch any more. The game was not delayed, as the Freshmen were at the bat, but the captain thought it would be almost impossible for him to find another pitcher in time for the next inning. He went over to where the crowd of Freshmen were sitting on the bleachers, and inquired if any of them could take the injured pitcher’s place. “ Of course’ the game is lost,” he continued, “but the Sophs, will make no end of sport of us if we do not finish it.” A moment of profound silence. Then Bert Waters stepped out from among the seats and said in a firm voice, ” I will try if you will let me.” “You,” laughed the captain, “what can you do ? I don’t be- lieve you ever saw a base-ball.” “ But I have, and I know how to pitch one, too,” replied Bert, and his look of confidence was having its effect on the captain. “ Well, you may try it,” said the captain, wondering if he were in a dream. “ But I must have my catcher, as we understand each other,” said Bert, as the captain started back toward the diamond. After few moments of discussion, Bert was told to go the dressing- room, where they would find suits, get into them, and appear on the field as quickly as possible. When the regular catcher heard of this he was very angry and said that he hoped the Freshmen would not score one run. In a few ' minutes Bert Waters and George Simmons appeared in uniforms, and many remarks were made about them, such as “What are those fellows going to do? How did they learn to play ball ? by studyiug a Greek grammar?” But the new players paid little or no attention to these wild remarks, as they took their po- sitions on the field. The Sophomores were in high spirits. They thought of the honor and fame that this victory would give them. The Freshman captain had lost all hope of winning the game, but was anxious to score at least one run to keep the team from being whitewashed. At the beginning ot the sixth inniug the score stood 5 to o in favor of the Sophomore team, and Bert occupied the pitcher’s box while George was behind the bat. The first Soph to bat made a two-base hit which was cheered by the crowd. The next man advanced him to third on a sacrifice, but he did not reach home because the next two men were struck out, which retired the side. The Freshmen came to bat and scored two runs, which caused an enormous amount of cheering by the Freshmen on the bleachers. The Sophs Came to bat and the first three men were struck out in one, two, three, order, and the Freshmen began to have a faint hope of winning or at least tying the score. They came in from the field and scored three runs before they were put out, thus tying the score. The eighth inning neither side scored. The Sophs now came up for the last time. The first man made, a three-base hit. The second was struck out. The third hit the ball and it went up in the air The catcher started after it and caught it with one hand about half way between the home plate and third base, and touched the man who had started to run home from third, thus making a double play and preventing the Sophs, from scoring. If the Freshmen now could only make one run the game would be theirs. The first man up was struck out. The second made a two-base hit and the excitement of the spectators was in- tense. They cheered every time a ball was thrown. The next man was put out at first base. It was Bert’s turn at the bat and he trembled somewhat as he picked up his bat. The ball went whizzing past his head. “One strike,” called out the umpire. The next two balls went wide and of course were called balls. The next one was a good one and Bert struck with all his might. He hit the ball squarely and it sailed into the air. It went straight over the right fielder’s head and Bert made a home run. The man on second also ran home, making a total of 7 to 5 in favor of the Freshmen. The game was over and the Freshmen were happy. Bert was the hero of the hour. Everyone was eager to shake hands with him, and it was twenty minutes later when he was picked up by four stout Freshmen and carried on their shoulders to the dressing room, while four more followed with his friend George, the catcher. The Sophomores could not be found. They had gone to their rooms to look up their Greek and Latin grammars to see if they could find anything about base-ball. It is not known whether they found anything relating to that sport or not, because they never mentioned base-ball again that year. 7J ie Chemical jCab R O one who has not studied Chemistry, can understand the mysteries of the Chemical Lab. Its long low roof covers • ' dark facts and the genius who dwells there forcibly tears secrets from Dame Nature, harnesses up that poor lady’s resources and uses them for his own ends. The odors which eternally float about the roof of the building, like those same clouds which are said persistently to stick to the top of Mt. Blanc, make one snuff curiously in passing. Let this article be for those who don’t understand these things. Of course, all that I can say won’t, can ' t present the real thing but can give only a slight, fleeting glimpse of that sacred precinct. When we’re new to that science, we have more formality in the class room. We assemble in the lecture room and are counted and lectured at. Dr. B. — does almost all of the experiments at first, by way of teaching us care and precision. We yearn for the time to come when we can explode our own hydrogen, boil our own acids and break our own test tubes. Later in the Qualitative Course, we go directly to our own street and number, unlock our door and immediately set up housekeeping. The desks are very well equipped and it does’nt take long to find out the use and (ab) use of every article of furniture. This is the merry water bottle which will keep up our spirits through many a weary filtering. It’s interesting, too, to see how far a stream of water can be made to go when necessary. What is pleasanter than to pour a tiny stream of H2O upon the top of an unsuspectinghead, intent upon discovering whether the H2S has been expelled. The start of surprise as the said person discovers that he has water on the brain, is equally pleasing. Then again, for variety, turn out the faithful gas, which is trying to evaporate to dryness some sort of juice, and let your neighbor wonder a bit. The great social center is the middle hood. There everyone gathers to filter, wash, talk, and endure odors. There is absolutely nothing to do for a few minutes, while the filter is going through but be conversational. I’ve heard most heated theological dis- cussions under the hood, heard someone make a proposal, heard presented questions of ethics and food. Nothing is too trivial to discuss over the heads of the H2S generators and the acid bottles. I may not close without saying a few words about the Marsh Test. Be firm with it and it won’t explode. Don’t let your nervous sphere communicate itself to the generator and all will be well. The hydrogen will do right, if you wait long enough. If Chemistry appeals to you at all, you will find those after- noons in the Dab. very interesting and pleasant, and I wish you all success with the “unknowns.” fell HE Library is a most popular resort. If you wish to forget oil heart troubles, ulcerated teeth, conditions, hunger or physics just throw yourself upon a book and kindly oblivion will surround you. There are rows upon rows of tranquil books ready with a hearty welcome. The very atmosphere of them is restful, They never thrust themselves upon you nor ever chide you, but are ex- tremely frank and friendly. If you have a mood, then match your mood to a book and be at rest. Here we travel, history, fiction, — anything you like. Or nibble here and there : this book is brutally frank ; that, courteous ; this, scientific ; that, jolly. It is a most satisfactory sight to see the room filled with lines of heads, of all colors and all degrees of dishevelment, buried to their neckties in books. Woe to the person socially inclined, for the kindly dragon never sleeps. It is one of the best things in the world that we do have to “restrain our skipping spirits,” in this place at least. Otherwise how could one learn a whole week’s history or botany in five minutes, if surrounded by whispered scraps about the last dance or the latest hat ? Impossible ! Nothing ever disturbs us more, save the wild scream of the escaping steam in the engine room, or the audible smile of a Puck or Judge reader. The Library lias grown. Once it had only wall shelves and a stray case or two in the middle of the room. Now the book stacks almost crowd us out, and they did crowd out the stately palm which grew, or rather refused to grow, in the intellectual sphere of the place. Perched upon the stacks are Morrill, our benefac- tor, and Sappho. They never look at each other ; yet it would be so interesting for two such bright people, so differently brought up, to fathom each other’s mind and be sociable. I must say a few words about our illustrious Library . Club, which meets twice a month. The monthly periodicals and some of the other recent publications are reviewed in turn. No one would imagine from the calm appearance of M - x - - n when giving a synopsis of Scribner’s, that a wild and hurried half hour had just been passed, before the opening of the Club, in trying to cram all the ideas in that magazine into his head. New members keep coming in ; and as soon as their names are proposed, they are set to reviewing a four-volume work which is just out, or a scientific article. That ' s a good way to do, for then one’s turn comes less frequently and the new members gain a good understanding of said book. The new members, too, not being initiated, study their articles thoroughly and well. Growth is a glorious thing. And now it is time to close the Library and lock the door for the night. Let the souls of the books come out and converse. Methinks one can hear, as one passes down the hall, the ghostly laughter of Shakespeare and Chaucer as they look at Life, or catch the wild whispers of Dante and Milton intent on a picture representing the infernal regions, in the latest Puck ; and then all is silence. LIPPITT HALL. TJ ie 7 aw Regime UCH is the title that the average student felt disposed to give to the new order ot things which has been in force during the year. How well we remember the day when Prexy, with suitable emphasis, disclosed the details of his plan for the administration of the dormitory. We were promised proctor with a monopoly on all the virtues possessed by the ideal ruler. He was to arrive at the beginning of the year with a carpet bag full of rules calculated to strike the meek submissive Prep with terror, and to quail even the boisterous gavety of the hilarious Soph. Remembering the free and easy character of the former military rule, our busy minds ever prone to contrast, were filled with terri- ble visions of disciplinary severities and punishments. Nor were our apprehensions removed by our first glimpse of the new incum- bent. His athletic stature and impressive mien inspired one with a belief that offences against that hypothetical carpet bag of regu- lations would not be tolerated and that perhaps punishment would be meted out with no unsparing hand. Such was the impression, and the effect was salutary to the authorities. Pranks were at a discount, securities on tricks quickly fell below par. and a quietus was put on all forms of hazing Thus we dwelt in peace and securi- ty, would be offenders were kept in check by that omnipotent fear of the all-pervading arm of the law. The Fall Term passed and yet the studied quiet was not broken. But let us not be deceived, ’tis but a silence that portends a more lively turn of affairs. It is the Winter Term, the Chicken Class and many other kindred evils aie upon us. With great perseverance our worthy protector had inculcated into our moral system a due sense of the new responsibilities which had devolved upon us as a direct con- sequence of the visitation of Providence with which we were afflic- ted. Strict silence was enjoyed upon us during the dreary watches of the night. Under the shadow of these solemn fear inspiring edicts, we lived in a trembling state of apprehension. About this time, a statement was made in Chapel, which in the light of later events was doubtless rather premature. Certain remarks were made in a jocular manner of the deep laid plans of some scheming students in regard to ejecting certain mighty men of muscle through the window on some eve. After this students with whom you and I are acquainted could be detected trying to control their goats and at the same time racking their brains to invent some wily scheme for the edification of friends. The result of all of this cunning scheming is too well known to be dwelt upon by this my humble pen. Well we all remember the sudden occurrence of certain local showers which owed their origin to an innocently deceptive can, perched over doors of unsuspecting students. Hut the final results of these erratic meteorological plieuoiniua were tragic as is shown by the career of a prominent specialist of purifaction. All can recall that evening when our proctor proved recreant to his duties and upon his return found his ingress suddenly block- ed. By use of Herculean strength the opposing chair was quickly reduced to smithereens. With the cunning of “Old Sleuth’’ the clues were investigated with true detective skill. But all in vain the culprit remained undiscovered, free to continue his career of intrigue. Are you sure ? Such is the result of obedience to false gods and such is the condition of affairs in our hitherto peaceful haven of rest. But do not suppose my gentle reader, for an instant, that all this was allowed to pass unnoticed for in justice there was found a remedy for all these ills. Banishments were decreed and certain of our students in their search for higher things were suddenly removed to a much lower plane where it was supposed they could with greater profit continue their school career. But let us stop here, our reluctant pen is loth to chronicle these melancholy events. Our pensive hearts throb with sorrow as we survey the few remaining vestiges of our former priviliges No more the peaceful quiet inviting the reflective youth to studious retirement, to undisturbed revery and meditation. In their place is stealth and intrigue, the constant strife of warring factions and the indiscriminate attentions of the practical joker. But much is Fate, we bow in submission to the powers that be, and murmur, not our will but thine be done. 7j ie Sony of the Chemist (With apologies to Tennyson). Break, break, break, The beakers and test-tubes, Oh, see! And I would that I might utter The thoughts that arise in me.

He tells me to lower the window, And to keep my work under the hood ; For the smell of chlorine and H 2 S, To the nostrils is not good. Filter and wash the precipitate, And dissolve in HC1, (Oh, that all this Chemistry Could be transferred to Cairo.) Break, break, break ! Beakers and test-tubes so free. May recollections of my chemistry course Never come back to me. clec tic Social f HE Eclectic Society is a thing of the past. Its members part- ed without a qualm for its funds provided each one of them with a ticket, which fact fulfilled all their expecta- tions. The memory of the last social, is also passing away from us. Before it is quite erased from our minds, let me recall it. Behold a group of students, anxious to please aud eager to make the affair a success. There are games of one kind and an- other and refreshments of like description. There is a noise, some laughter, and here are the Seniors, suave, hair neatly combed and well blacked shoes. They bring cheer and joy while their un- wonted gentlemantly attention and thoughtfulness quite astonish the committee. For some unknown reason, the refreshments all disappear during the first half hour — entirely gone ; for some few with stu- died carelessness, quietly but earnestly gathered about the lemon- ade bowl like birds of prey around some choice morsel. It was discovered later that the bowl was quite dry. We play a game entitled “Advice”. It is very wholesome for Fate holds the pack and deals out the cards with unerring wisdom. After some more games and music, the party begins to break up. Then with civil leers and graceful flops these same guests passed out with that uplifted smile which is seen but once in a lifetime. And the next morning when the young ladies swept the Chapel and cleared up generally, the kindly sphere of brotherly love was so all pervading in the Chapel that it had to be swept up into dustpans and removed to prevent suffocation. 33 its of Advice “ All meals will be served in the air, as no dishes will be allowed on the table.” Percy. “ Guests wishing to take a bath will find it convenient to use soap and water.” Mowry. “ No one will be allowed to sleep after retiring.” Chase. “ The “ glee club” will sing after the students retire.” Allen. “ Those wishing to visit “Wolf Rocks” can do so by returning the sign ‘Wolf Rocks 200 Yds.’ Munroe. “ Persons wishing exercise are recommended to drill.” Col.

Scott Cottege Cnterta nments J N recalling some of the events of college life during the past year, it is encouraging to note an effort on the part of the students to provide entertainments of literary or musical in- terest and a tendency to depend less as an attraction upon the excellent facilities for dancing afforded by Lippitt Hall. It is especially pleasant for the Juniors to be able to claim the first, and not the least successful, of the year’s courses, which occurred on December sixteenth. junior 77 u sic ale In arranging this, the first purely musical affair given at the college, the class was fortunate enough to secure a string orchestra comprising several well-known Providence musicians. These were assisted at the piano by Mr. Joseph Hastings, Jr., whose musical abilty and wide experience were potent factors in the artistic success of the concert, and also by the solo numbers of Miss Annie E. Rider, soprano, and Mr. Andrew Ford, violinist. To the musical program was added, very appropriately, a reading by the honorary member of the class, Miss Putnam. The excellent work of the orchestra and soloists met with hearty appreciation throughout, especial enthusiasm being shown for Mr. Ford’s brilliant playing of the Hungarian Fantasia, the reading given with such strong dramatic effect by Miss Putnam, and the song from Ambroise Thomas’ Mignon. Among the num- bers most enjoyed were also two not on the program ; for before Miss Putnam was permitted to leave the stage, she had quite capti- vated the house by her reading of the amusing verses “ In May,” recited with piano accompaniment ; while Miss Rider responded to the applause which greeted Mignon ' s pathetic song, with a translation of the little German poem, “ Eiebstraum,” set to music by Mr. Hastings. The beautiful Pilgrim’s Chorus died away into a moment of silence, which was perhaps more eloquent than the round of applause that followed, and the lights went out that night on some very well-contented Juniors, whose pleasure was in no wise lessened by the fact that the affair had proved a substantial benefit to The Grist. In leaving the subject of the Musicale, we are glad of the opportunity to express the gratitude of the class to those who aided in its success : to Miss Rider, Miss Putnam and Mr. Hastings, to Mr. Sidney S. Rider for programs ; to Miss Eldred for posters ; and to all the Faculty for their encouragement and support. Recital Ay ZPupiis in Expression. On January twenty-eighth, a very pleasant recital was given by several of Miss Putnam’s pupils, assisted by Miss Mary Belle Smith, violinist. The readings were all very successful, and bore witness to Miss Putnam’s thorough and able training, as well as to the in- spiration which she has been to herpupils in their work. Equally creditable were the tableaux, so artistically devised and skilfully carried through. The varying effects of colored lights made them most interesting ; and the last, “ Rock of Ages,” was strikingly effective, the most beautiful of all in the graceful lines afforded by the grouping of the figures. A welcome addition to the program was the playing of Miss Smith, already well known to college audiences. Slee Club Concert One of the most gratifying events of the year was the first con- cert, on April twenty-first, of the College Glee and Banjo Club, organized under the direction of Mr. Allen. It has long been the wish of those interested in college affairs, that a greater interest in musical matters might be aroused in the students, and that such talent as existed among them might be developed and made a more prominent factor in the pleasures of college life. The advent of a leader able to bring order out of the musical chaos, was there- fore felt to be a matter for rejoicing ; and the results of the winter’s work, as shown at the concert, fully justified the hopes of those interested in the experiment. The singing of the Glee Club re- vealed some excellent voices, in a state of training remarkable for so recent an organization ; while the playing of the Banjo Club was hardly less admirable. They were assisted by Miss Thompson. The work of the Glee Club was especially satisfactory throughout, notably in “ Kentucky Babe,” with its humming re- frain over the odd and very effective suggestion of a banjo accom- paniment, and in the Eton Boating song, where it was supple- mented by the Banjo Club. The solos gave an encouraging indication of the possibilities of college talent ; and the Quartet was very well received, both its selections being encored, as were several numbers by the Glee and Banjo Clubs. The encores added an acceptable dash of spice to the program, as they were all very well given, decidedly amusing and extremely brief. Miss Thompson’s readings gave much pleasure, especially the chapter from “the Birds’ Christmas Carol,” also her encore number, a quaint little poem by James Whitcomb Riley. The concert was an unqualified success, and reflects great credit upon the faithful work of the Club, and on the able leadership of Mr. Allen. It is sincerely hoped that another year will show the progress justly expected from so auspicious a beginning. ' tPride Cometh ZBefore destruction ” Sunday, 19th, . It is such a pleasant day, sunny and wide, it is large enough for me with my new military suit on. I think I’ll go to the sta- tion and see the newcomers, maybe there’ll be some girls. Come on, “ Rastus.” Out they start and as they proceed their spirits rise in (inverse) proportion to their common sense. Do any of my readers know the brook between the College and the station? It is a very naughty brook. Just at the point, where there ought to be a bridge, but isn’t, there are merely some slippery logs. BEWARE!

Just then Fate in the shape of a small, yellow bird perches upon a twig o’erhead and sings, “ Oh ! where are my wandering boys to-night? ” And the waters of the night moan wildly over the two black stones. Che 9 civ Courses In 1897 the standard of the College was raised and new courses of study were outlined to take effect in the fall of ’98. This was done in conformity with the recommendations of the report adopted by the Association of College Presidents at a meet- ing held in Washington, D. C., in Nov. 1896. The necessity of having the degree given by the different state institutions represent approximately the same amount of work was the cause of the action ; this tends to produce a uni- formity in their several courses of instruction. Since, however, this change in admission requirements would 1 necessarily exclude many country pupils, who have not had the advantages of High School instruction, it was thought best to conduct a preparatory department in connection with the College. The examinations for admission to the preparatory school are the same as as those formerly required of Freshman. At the beginning of the Sophomore year the number is en- larged by the separation of the Mechanical from the Physical Mathematical. In the last two years the Chemical course stands alone. Later, a General Course will be added to the curriculum to benefit those who wish to enjoy the advantages of instruction without being obliged to take any technical work. A conspicuous fact noticeable in the new courses is that they mean hard work. The former strategic evading of conditions is now much more difficult to accomplish successfully. Much regret is sometimes expressed by the upper classman that these courses were not in force when they entered. With the above mentioned hard work and a high quality of instruction, we venture to predict that in a few years a degree from the R. I C. will give the holder a feeling of pardonable pride and a consciousness that its value is appreciated by the edu- cational world. incidents in the Career of a Srist Cciitor I T would be too much to expect that the career of so unimpor- tant a personage as “Ye Grist Editor” would possess any interest to the casual reader. Nevertheless our minds would rest easier if we could unburden some of our troubles to the possi- bly sympathizing reader. Let no one think for an instant that the scribe lives in an atmosphere of constant pleasure, rejoicing in the use of an impli- ment, popularly supposed to be more powerful than the sword. On the contrary his days are days of toil and trouble ever searching grinds on some poor chap. Even in his slumbers he is not allow- ed to rest unmolested, he is haunted in his dreams by the ever present name of “Grist” and he imagines himself the recipient of summary vengeance from the unfortunate under graduate whom he has roasted. Of course the editor is ever pursued by the honeyed attention of some student who is anxious to escape for one year the roasting from the annual. One of our friends in an outspoken way stated that he did not want his name used as he wanted to take a copy home with him. There is always the person who thinks that he has an especially bright idea which he is firmly persuaded should find a place in print. As a consequence one is confronted with some threadbare witticism and the suggestion “Put it in the Grist,” “Put it in the Grist ” How often some student has come to us, his form doubled up in a fit of convulsive laughter, to relate some ancient joke long ago worthy of a decent interment, while with the tears streaming down his cheeks he would utter the words, “Put it in the Grist,” “Put it in the Grist.” Seneral Calendar 1898.

F is for Faculty, who grind out the marks, And condition all students who are too fond of larks. G is for Grinnell, whose delicate frame. Knocked dear Mr. Sibley ’most out of the game. H is for Henry who works night and day, Concocting great schemes to make The Grist pay. I — but here we are interrupted by a voice which cries in tones of authority, “ I am M 1 A s L--d, who command Company B, and strike terror to the hearts of all who come under my iron sway at the dining hall. There are no other I’s worth mentioning, so don’t try.” We obey silently and pass on to, J meaning Jays too numerous to mention, In various ways they compel our attention. K is for Kenyon, active enough In enforcing the rules of the Physic’s Prof. L denotes Love, a Senior elective, Which knocks other studies quite out of perspective. M is for Maxson, fiend from the West, Society former and lover of rest. N is for Newton whose loss premature, With resignation we strive to endure. O — Owen, the depth of whose fascinations Far exceeds that of his recitations. P must be Pascoe, an infant in size, But whose mischief and impudence rise to the skies. Q is for Queer things, each class has its share, But the Preps can lead all the rest, for fair. R is for Reynolds whose somnolent tendency, On most occasions obtains the ascendency. 5 stands for Stillman and also for Steere, To whom Analytics is quite without fear. T is for Thompson, whom I won’t describe here, You can read about her in The Grist of last year. U is for Uncle who left his old lair, To pursue his agricultural study elsewhere. V is for Vineyard, that little collection, Whose charms the day students know to perfection. W — Wilson, Wilby, Wheeler, now whom Shall I choose, but, alas ! I’ve used up my room. X ams and Xcuses Xpose our slim knowledge Of the arts and the sciences taught in the college. Y is for yells whose importance is great In foot-ball games and all matters of state. Z is for Zero ; one is nothing alone, But two denote something whose worth is well known. 6 highly we prize it, don’t bhtme us we beg, For surely there’s naught like the double goose-egg.

The following communications which the Grist Board has at different times received are here printed for the benefit of the reading public who will without doubt peruse them with great interest : Editors of The Grist, Dear Sirs : — I direct this letter to you, asking a favor which you cannot consistently deny one with such lofty pretensions as myself. I am, to tell the truth, not averse to notoriety, and would be pleased if you devote some space to the consideration of a few of my many achievements. Possibly you know of my deep knowledge of Chemistry, indeed I assure you that I have easily captured an A every term in that department. I have stood very prominently before the public this year in my capacity as Manager of the Athletic Association, where my success has been too well known to require mention. Probably you would feel favored at receiving some of my work for publication in your annual. If you have any correspondence with other schools perhaps I can help you, since I have friends in every college in the country. Yours sincerely, Clifford Brewster Morrison. We regretfully inform our readers that, owing to the egotistic character of his bombastic productions, we were obliged to refuse Mr. Morrison’s kind offer. However, we have been able to accommodate him in his search for notoriety. y o ce ets Miss B ks. “What is that thing that goes around on the engine, is it the captain?” Engineer. “No, that is the governer.” Miss B ks. “I knew it was some kind of an officer.” McK 1. “May I go over to the library.

So now to your attention This Grist we do present ; And give our thanks to those Who kindly help have lent. We will say to the critics, Whose mercy we implore, Since we perhaps may meet again, Not good-by, but au revoir. Advertisements o Cist of Advertisers Adams, G.
