EREIN lies our testimony of good faith as a graduating class
'D to its Alma Mater. It is needless to say, that, in publishing
this eighth volume of Tl-Ili Sl,-'uJ1iR, we have labored through
-' l l ' the tender power of love and have bent our best efforts to infuse
Q-'Qin into the book the invigorating life of our College: so that in
Eh, 5,54 after years we may continue to drink from that Fountain of
"A' To bring this about, we have pursued the policy of inter-
pretation by illustration and firmly believe that this method is conclusive in giving
to ourselves and the public at large a true insight of the collegiate activities. So
far as possible each of the organizations constituting the varied forms of college
lite have been fully represented, and there has been no partiality shown to any
single department. It was deeply regretted that a complete athletic record could
not be obtainedg but, we understand, the Athletic Association has this important
business in hand and a publication in thc near future is promised. However, we
were more successful in compiling the data of the Literary Societies and believe
we are able to present an accurate record of their history and competitive events.
The stories appearing in this department were selected with great care from
a large number, submitted by faithful and talented students.
ln bringing the whole matter to a conclusion, we wish to express our deep
regard for the many kindnesses bestowed upon us by the entire student body,
in an endeavor to interpret our college days, which, like the young home days,
like the young love days. should be the halcyon days!

Greater Richmond College
j'5qQT?CrrgRf 1898 women were admitted to the advanced classes of Rich-
m-ond College. During the first SCF-S1'OUS'l'Ol11' women entered.
fu Since that time the number has steadily increased until the en-
rollment of women in 1909-10 is thirty.
During the past decade interest in the higher education of
women has steadily grown. and by 1907 it was evident that larger
and better provision should be made by Richmond College for
the higher education of young women. In that year began a
campaign for 5500.000 with which to build a XN"oman's College as a department of
Richmond College, and also to strengthen the liberal arts college for men. Hy
january, 1909, the half million dollars had been subscribed. Of this amount
Sl50.000 was subscribed by the General Education lioard of New York. All
this money was subscribed in live equal annual instalments, and was therefore to
be collected at the rate of 3100.000 a year for tive years. Nearly 3200.000 has
already been collected in cash, and payments are steadily coming in. ln the
campaign for the half million dollars, the city of Richmond took a notable
part and subscribed more than 3150.000 of the whole amount.
During the present session the Trustees of Richmond College voted to accept
certain otfers of land at XVesthampton, in the western suburbs of Richmond. and
to begin building the new colleges for women a11d for men on that site within
eighteen months. lly this arrangement the College received by gift 210 acres
of lancl, and has acquired by purchase about seventy-four additional acres, making
a total of not less than 284 acres which will be included in the new site. Lying
near the center of this magnificent tract of land is a beautiful lake, covering
between seven and eight acres, fed by never-failing brooks, which keep the water
always fresh and sweet. About 120 acres of the property is cleared land and
has been recently under cultivation: the remainder is in hard-wood forests,
covered largely with magnificent white oaks and hickories. Landscape architects
who have visited the new site pronounce it the most picturesque in Eastern
Virginia and among the best college sites in the world. Observatory Hill, on
the northern part of the new campus. towers nearly' 300 feet about the plain
below the lake,
At the rate at which land is now selling immediately adjoining the new
college property, this gift to the College is worth S200.000. and its location insures
its steady increase in value through the years to come. On this valuable and
splendid site it is the purpose of the College to erect as speedily as practicable
buildings for a new college for men, for the Law College, and for the new
XVoman's College. All the institutions will be under tl1e control of one Board
of Trustees and one central administration. There will be one central library,
one main group of laboratories, one central heating plant, one auditorium, one
administration building, and all other general utilities will be held in common.
The chief saving effected by tl1e proposed plan of co-ordination will be in the
expense of instruction. The plans which have worked so successfully at Columbia
University, Xdfestern Reserve University, Brown University, and other great
American institutions will, with certain modifications, be put into effect at the
Greater Richmond College.
just as this issue of "Tile Sjv1'dcr" goes to press it is learned that the Com-
mittee on New Buildings has engaged the services, as architects for tl1e Greater
Richmond College, of Messrs. Cram, Goodhue and Ferguson, of Boston and
New York. This is one of the most noted architectural Erms i11 the world. They
won the competition over all comers for the new buildings at West Point. The
head of the firm is the supervising architect of Princeton University, and is
one of tl1e leading spirits in the American Institute of Architects. Wfith such
expert adivisers, the public may be assured that the buildings of the new a11d
greater college will be beautiful and harmonious. Students will be interested in
knowing that it is the purpose of tl1e Trustees to provide an athletic held on
the new site at an early day. The grandstand and stadium will be the first
structures occupied by the College. W'ith good street car service already in
operation, and with still better service promised for the 11CZl.l' future, we shall
soon get accustomed to running out to the new College Park.
lt has not yet been decided when the new building ca11 be opened. but it
is understood that the Building Committee will use diligent effort to open tl1e
college O11 the new site in September. 1912. Possibly a year longer may be
required, but by 1913, at latest. we shall enter our new and permanent home on
the heights above tl1e river and tl1e lake.
In a recent public address at the College, President Boatwright stated that
in some respects "Greater Richmond College" had already been attained. In
the last Hfteen years, the endowment has increased Ioo per cent.g tl1e attendance
of college students has increased 82 per cent., and, if the Richmond Academy,
the sub-freshman department of the College, be included tl1e attendance of students
has increased 179 per cent. The attendance for the present session is I3 per cent.
in advance of any previous session. Wfith larger and better accommodations on
the new site, Richmond College may be expected to grow more rapidly in the next
few years tl1a11 ever before. It is confidently predicted that within live years
after removal the attendance of students will be twice the present enrollment.
Great opportunities lie before the new College, and it only remains for its Alumni
and friends to le11d their l1elp and co-operation.

" 'fs LOXVLY and ma'esticall ' fflided Kino' Arthur's barge across the

waters. Against the jet black vessel, in the bright, morning
sunlight, there gleamed and glittered the shining apparel and
golden crowns of Arthur's three queens and in their midst sat
Arthur, tall and commanding, all clad in his knightly armor
with his sword, Excalibur, making the sunbeams dance. In
the happy Isle of Avalon he had healed him of his grievous
wounds, and in response to the message of some spirit wind that
told him that a new Camelot and new knights were awaiting him across the
seas, he had come once more to wage war 'gainst the hosts of Modred.
Meanwhile, during King Arthur's sojourn in the Blessed Isle, only Sir
Bedivere and his followers had been left to keep alive the kingdom of knights,
and as Arthur advanced in search of the spirit winds promise, a sense of
desolation and sad ruin sank into his soul. Here and there were gallant men
whom he looked to find his knights, here and there were b1'ave courts estab-
lished by some follower of Bedivereg but none of these satisfied his idyllic passion.
Down from the Northland to the South he came, and hope was all but dying.
"Alas!l' he cried, "would that I had remained 'forever in that blissful, deep-
meadowed, bowery lsle of Avalon, and had not heeded the spirit wind, for
Modred is too strong,
But now another of those knightly courts loomed up before him, more
majestic, more stately, more imposing than all the rest, and about its walls there
was something of the look of the old days. Haunting memories of sacred
history hovered 'round the nearby hills beneath the Southern Cross, and as
Arthur hastened to enter the portals of the castle, portraits and statues of those
first, long lost knights of the Round Table, met his eager glance, and hope
As he passed in, tall knights and fair ladies came forth to greet him, and
from these he learned that Sir Bedivere himself had established this court in the
far-off days, to await the doubtful, but longed-for, 'coming of Arthur. Many
a knight had lived, and fought, and died, since then. Each year a gallant
company went forth, some were never more heard ofg some returned: and some
were deemed worthy of having their names emblazoned on the palace walls
in letters of gold. Even now a band of knights and ladies were about to leave.
The knights were tall and sun-kissedg the ladies were fairer than lilies, morn-
ing vvas in their heartsg and as Arthur gazed upon this company, he thought
he beheld his knights of old. Hope, joy, unutterable peace came over him,
and a heavenly light shown in his eyes.
"This, at last," said he, "is the promised Camelot, and these my promised
knights. Once more shall my Round Table be established, and Excalibur has
not in vain risen again from the foamy deep. Forth, sir knights and ladies fair,
I dub thee mine of Camelot, mine to fight my holy wars, and ever will Camelot
await news of your victories." FROM 'A 1911.

experienced as a n1en1ber of tl1e 1911 Class. And that, by tl1e way, is tl1e reason
we are going to attempt to write tl1e history of tl1e Class of 1911.
The history of 2111 organization in tl1e strictest se11se implies accuracy i11
l12l1'1'2l1ll1g events COl1CCl'11CCl with that 01'gZ1l1lZ2l1lOl1.. To speak of writing the
history of tl1e junior Class is, therefore, 21 contradiction in terms. XVe l1ave
not tl1e slightest idea of searching through dusty volnines in order to 1:1l1Cl
the dates and circninstances of the arrival at 1R1Cl1111011t1 College of certain of
the "old ll'Il1ZllJl1Zl111S', of o11r Class, an1l their life from tl1at time on. XVe are not
concerned witl1 the 1'l1Z111l1C1' i11 which certain 1nen1bers conlclucted theinselves
wl1e11 they hrst beheld tl1e civilized world. Wie shall not even describe to you
how a certain g'C1lJElC111Z111, who was enjoying tl1e benefits of the grand old art
of "l1azi11g," when calle1l upon to recite poetry, coinposed original verses which
so Cl1Zll'l11CCl and moved his hearers tl1at they wept with joy, Cl'OXVl1Cil 111111 witl1
ivy and bestowed upon hin1 the title "1'oet-La111'e21te." which he has retained
throngli many years 111110 this day. Xo. these things 21re not important. and
Nifly-n ll 4:
since some of the events date back to a very early period. there is an intricate
mingling of fact and fiction which dazes the investigator. Qui' purpose is a
nobler f?j and sublimer t?'J one. Vtfe are going to give you a few character-
sketches. XVe are going to describe the personnel of the Class. NYC are going
to give just a glimpse into the inner life of our fellow members-a stupendous
and in some cases hardly an inspiring task-an-il your imagination may fill in
what the actions of these members must have been,
The power of objective characterization is a gift possessed only by the
very select. lf, therefore, we should err in our portrayals. attribute it to the
fact that you are not reading Chaucer or Dickens. Indeed the "poet of the
dawni' would be confounded in characterizing such an assortment as the T911
Class affords. Wie have representatives in every profession and walk of life,
from the preacher to the professed "bum." Wie might begin at the alphabetical
head of the list and go straight through to the last name, but we fear public
opinion. W'e dare not place anyone before the name of a certain illustrious mem-
ber of our Class. Nlfhen the names of Shakespeare. Milton. Chaucer and "Rat"
Rogers have passed into the Utongueless silence" of a meaningless oblivion, this
name will stand forth in all the elifulgent radiance of personified greatness-
the name of Thomas Everett Cochran, emeritus Professor of .-Xtomic Hypotheses
and applicant for an ultimate D. D. "He came, he saw, he conquered" until he
met Mr. Cox one evening in the chapel, and then his bright star declined, but
only for a moment, for it rose again in all the serenity of unconquered fame.
"l-le never yet no vileinye ne sayfle,
In al his lyf un-to no inaner wightf'
Only once in his life clifl Hr. Cochran swerve from the path of righteous-
ness-but that is a closed volume.
From a name like this to any other male member of the Class is too broad
a jump for us to attempt. Therefore, we bridge over the difliculty by turning
our attention to the fair, brilliant. and popular i'Co-Eels." lYe have heard
that woman needs no eulogy: that she speaks for herself. NYC are inclined to
believe that this statement is. as a rule, literally and not figuratively true. But
in the case of the representatives of the "sweeter sex." who honor our Class by
their angelic presence. the statement is both literally an-:l figuratively a truism.
They need no eulogy and they do continually speak for themselves. Yet while
any eulogy that we can give them is superfluous, we are unable to contain our
unbounded admiration for them. Ufhere in all the colleges of this land can
you End a class so fortunate as to l1ave such 'iCo-Eclsf' as our own Class?
Genius itself has here taken up his abodeg Hebe has here bestowed her rarest
charmsq and Hyinen looks to the future.
From "Co-lids." to poetry and music is a short space: for one the cause,
the other the effect. .-Xnd in these art! -XVhat beauty! XYhat excellence! "Strike
with hand of Fire, on, weird musician, thy harp. strung with Apollo's golden
lTZll1'. Fill the vast cathedral aisles with symphonies sweet and dim, deft touches
of the organ's keys." lllow. bugler. blow until thy silver notes do touch and
kiss the moonlit leaves" but know your sweetest strains are discords all com-
pared with the harmony of Crump. Stillwell and Fleet. Here we have a musician,
a poet and a vocalist-these three: and the greatest of these is the last-with
the exception ot the lirst two. History repeats itself, The world has heard
of Orpheus, of Shakespeare and of Caruso. Let the world now behold their
superiors-Crump, Stillwell and Fleet. We can imagine nothing more charm-
ing, more like the enchanting music of fairyland, than a song written by Stillwell.
set to music by Crump and sung by Fleet. If this should ever be done the
"music of the spheres" will surely lose their popularity in literature.
Speaking of literature reminds us of Europe. Europe reminds us ot Euro-
pean travellers, and no further introduction is needed for you to understand that
we are going to mention the names of Paul X'Vhitestiue Orchard and W'illiam
Burton Sydnorfff These gentlemen have some points of resemblance. Both have
made extensive tours of the old world. lt is said that Mr. Sydnor went as tar
as Siberia where he was delayed for some time by the attention of a Russian
Princess. There is likewise a report that Mr. Orchard while in the highlands
of Scotland was mistaken for Lochinvar. This may be hearsay. Both of these
gentlemen are renowned athletes. Mr. Orchard has made the 'varsity team for
IQSQOQ and Mr. Sy-ilnor has made the mile run in I2 Hat. Wie are doubtful as to
what should follow the twelve. There is a vague rumor. as we go to press. that
Mr. Sydnor has either been refused admittance to the Class of ioti, or is going
to resign in favor ol IQIO organization. We are in a state of sympathetic re-
Now what has been said about our members so far is comparatively recent
history. If you will bear with us for a little while we shall go back some dis-
tance in the course of luunan events and bring up some volumes of "forgotten
lore." Sometime prior to the great XYar ot the Rebellion there came to Rich-
mond College a gentleman belonging to the royal family of Brazil. From his
hrst appearance in Richmond to the present day his career has been romantic
and ever upward. He is a great admirer of the more loquacious sex, who have
always bestowed upon him the praise and attention which only the fair ones can
bestow. As a scholar this gentleman excels in the Sciences. His, text-book on
i'How to Teach Mathematics" is being translated into all the languages of the
worldg and his treatise on Biology has aroused quite a stir among medical men.
There is some report that he will be elected to the chair of Mathematics at
Bt Has since become a member of 'the IQIO Class.
Richmond College, but this may be a mistake. Suffice it to say, in regard to his
scientihc ability, that "long experience has made him sage." Edmundo Gadas-
car de la St. Germanio el Belfort will in all probability receive the reward of
his long years of toil in june, 1911.
So we could continue. 'We could tell you at length of the two men whose
Hvaulting ambition o'erleaps itself and falls on the other"-"Baby" Lodge and
'Philv Xhfoodvvard. VVe could surprise you with the theory that had "Teddy"
Bristow been a character in Greek Mythology he would have won Atlanta for
a wife without the use of the Golden Apples. And then we could relate how
recent investigations have proven that Kipling, VVilkie Collins and perhaps Charles
Dickens are merely iniitators, in their short stories, of Mr. Wfalter Beverly and
I-Ienry Xhfilliam XN7ilkins. And we would have to tell of the beautiful philosophy
of "Heine" Edmunds, who in defeat or victory never fails to whistle loudly the
divine melody of "Rainbow." So we could continue, reminding you of the only
modern Apollo in existence-Paul Edgar Hubbell, whose perfection of form and
faultless features have given rise to a new school of sculpture. Wfe might go
through the roll of our Class, made up as it is with names known the world
over, and give a whole volume to each, but time, space, energy and the editor-
in-chief forbid. Gne word and we are finished.
Fellow members, the time is near when the battle of life will begin. Only
the iittest will survive. Listen, aim high. If you fall, fall like a man-only to
rise again. Let your life be pure and clean and good. Stand for something.
Be honest and fair and noble, not because your forefathers were so, not because
you are fettered down to some dusty dogmas of an ancient and outgrown belief,
but because you know' that it will make you happier, better men, because YOLI
realize that happiness comes from goodness, and because goodness means leaving
the world a little better than you found it. So live that your life may be a
consolation to yourself, a source of joy to your loved ones, and an honor to the
Class of 1911. And may the unknown Creator of the Universe speed you on
the path of life.

L- M1 1908. The college spirit was made manifest to us shortly after
our arrival, when l'evton Lewis and others, fostering the wel-
' '- . . ' . . H .,
""'m rare of the Athletic Association, approached the Rats. de-
manding the initiation tee of two dollars. Many of us were too bewildered to
refuse, and thus came about our advent int'o the Association.
The nrst several months and, notably several weeks in October, of our stay
have enshrined themselves forever in our memories. W'hen we started on our
jonrney to Richmond, we had but a vague conception of those things which we
were to learn outside of the classroom. Wie were soon enlightened however. One
4'Lanky" Lodge and his friends were wont to disturb our slumbers during the
wee hours of the morning. lt was quite evident that this same "Lanky" was
not only captain of the baseball team of I9o9, but principal of a model school.
which ottered a thorough course in voice culture, athletics, and humorous dialogue.
On several occasions we were given strenuous lessons in the art of singing
and reciting. Again, some of our members were given ample opportunity to
display their ability as track men. One morning after a midnight track meet.
-one of our number was so bewildered that upon 'being questioned. as to whether
or not he was persuing an academic course. replied, "Thank you, l have attended
the academy." u
As we look back upon these exploits led by our upper classmen. who always
have the best interests of the "Rat" at heart. we feel grateful that the experience
belongs to ns. Some of our Class will undoubtedly agree with one ol our
popular professors that. 'EX tussle is always interesting-when you are on the
outside witnessing it."
lin athletics the Class ol' lQl.2 has played a conspicuous part. Davis and
Johnson very ably represented us on the 'Yarsity football team ot' '08, while on
the scrub team were to be found those who were doing their best to develop
the Hrst team. At the first indoor Xleet of Richmond College tliehrnary, 19087,
:i most successful event. our Class was represented in the shot-put event. Our
former classmate. ,Paul Snead, played a consistent game in centertield on the
Ni.:-I, r,f-1 lim'
'With the warm days of june, we scattered to our various homes, carrying
the determination, however, to solve the difficulties involved in Klathematics A,
for the coming year.
Last fall we returned to College, no longer'tbe timid and bewildered 'lRats"
of a year previous, but grave and courageous Sophomores. XVhat a different
aspect life assumed for us! Sophomores! One year nearer a degreeg nearer
to our professions, and well equipped to struggle with Mathematics A, and,
as subsequent events have proved with Astronomy. This year Sutherland, john-
son, Davis, and Taylor, of our number, won the much coveted "R," and j'ohnson's
playing at tackle was the redeeming feature of Richmond's work in the Thanks-
giving game with Randolph-Macon. Some of the promising basket-ball material
is among. our number. Two of our men have already won places on this
year's relay team, and we are in hopeful anticipation that some of our number
may gain places on this year's 'Varsity basket-ball team.
Thus, gentle reader, you End us in the second year of our college existence.
Vile have many battles to wage, many victories to win, and numerous joys and
sorrows to pass through ere we reach the goal of a degree. lint a spirit of
confidence and industry pervades our ranks and by a fair amount of fortune's
smile and diligent application, we hope, in due time, to reach the goal of our race.
The aim of the Class of IQI2 is twofold: First, to acquit ourselves creditably
while in college in whatever we undertake, and to prepare ourselves well for
the life work before ns: secondly, when we have left these classic halls, to
render to humanity such service as shall make us a blessing to the world and
reflect credit on our Alma Mater. Being Sophomores prevents our saying
more. Ere the green grass, budding trees, and singing birds usher the next
spring, we hope to inform you of more accomplishments and achievements of
the Class of 1912 than even the past record portrays.

2 Q if
THE "Rats" of IQOQ-IQIO, make our modest bow to you, the
upper classmen of Richmond College Although we beg your
humble pardons for living, still you will appreciate the fact that
it is not our fault. Many of our number are the proud successors
of medals and scholarships won at ".Prep." school, and all were
relying on our past records as a means of winning collegiate
honors. Alas! no sooner had we struck the campus than the
"shackly" props of honors and prizes were knocked from under
us and we were precipitated into the ditch of dejection. To be dubbed "Rat"
was a decided fall in dignity. and yet we could not protest. W'e were made to
understand that we were "Rats" and that it would take nine months to shed our
"tails." :Xt the same time we were brought to realize that past achievements
were no passports to glory in Richmond College.
.llefore long we began to "receive"-f. 0.-nightly callers forced themselves
upon our hospitality and even condescended to ask us to entertain them. NVe
were paraded around the campus in our most fantastic furnishings and indulged
in all manner of pleasing and interesting contests. If any "Rat" showed a
spirit of reluctance, a paddle of varying material, from a lath to a bed slat, ap-
plied as "per direction" soon brought him around.

Scarcely had we quit the "Haven of Hungry Souls" when that heart-rending
night, that same yoedling which we have long since
yoedling broke upon the still
recognized as the most characteristic voice of the campus and in which we have
become eminently proficient. As soon as our first bit of shyness wore off, we
began to investigate the city a bit, and- it was but a few weeks before we k11ew
the admission price of every theatre. Next in rapid succession came the art
of breaking windows and the introduction into the values of "poker" hands. Even
before Xmas. our popularity was attested to by the mnnber of 'phone calls re-
ceived from the fair sex. XVe soon learned the ways of the 'phone and we
now boast of some of the most skillful quillers in college.
Of our achievements we would fain speak, since we felt the eagle eye of
the jealous Senior upon us. ln football, track and tennis we showed up excep-
tionally well and baseball has claimed many of our members.
It might -be supposed by those who are pessimistic and superstitious that our
numeral will foreshadow ill luck. XVe have. however, taken due precaution
against such evil, not by wearing rabbit foot or getting out of bed on the right
side and such like, but by adopting as our motto. "Make it lucky by burning the

A General thletic Review
HELIEVE with Longfellow that the dead past should bury
its dead, andghence we do not propose in the following article
either to excuse defeats or to glorify victories. But it is our
"' of Richmond College a little sketch of the general athletic activi-
- ' ties during the past session.
- f , ' The football season was highly successful financially, being
'Y -. 1- E
purpose to present to the public and particularly the students
the only one of our sports which has succeeded in making money
this year, and besides we succeeded in tying up the championship by neatly de-
feating I-Iampdcn-Sidney after things had begun to look quite gloomy. In
tennis we showed up exceptionally strong against the crack team of the University
of North Carolina which invaded Virginia and carried olf such a string of
laurels, and it must be remembered that this "tar-heel" combination piled up
greater scores against some of the other Virginia colleges than they did against
us. ln track we succeeded very well at the opening of the season, but later
the team took a slump, from which it recovered sufficiently, however, to walk
away with the Eastern Division Championship Relay.
These facts, however. are public property. lt is our purpose to confine our
attention to those phrases of athletics which are not so well known.
As regards football it has been the concensus of opinion among the student
body that too many 'varsity letters were awarded. Such a condition of affairs,
though unavoidable under the past requirements, served to lower the value of
the letter. The Executive Committee of the Athletic Association therefore
decided to put in force a new and stricter requirement for both football and
baseball 'varsity letters, namely: That to be granted a 'varsity letter the player
must have played in a majority of the season's schedule including a majority
of the championship games. XVe are convinced that this ruling will both raise
the value of the letter to a very high standard and decrease the number of
letters awarded annually.
During the past year tennis has been raised to the standard of the other
three sports, namely: The financial support of the Athletic Association and
the award of 'varsity letters at the end of each season. These letters will be
awarded on the basis of the following requirement recently enforced by the
Executive Committee: That to he granted a 'varsity letter the player must
have represented the College in a majority of the inter-collegiate matches during
the session. The Executive Committee has also decided on a style of letter
which the close of the present session will find the successful candidates wearing.
Tennis richly deserves this impetus given it on account of its immense popu-
larity if nothing else. Wfith better courts and more of them, we predict that
Richmond College will shortly turn out teams in both doubles and singles second
to none in the State.
Although the track season this year was not altogether successful, even our
indoor meet having lost money-being run rather on a basis of quality than
finance-still we think that our track affairs deserve much more consideration
at the hands of the student body. There is too much apathy in regard to track
and this is chiefly due to tl1e stiff requirement for a 'varsity letter, which the
Executive Committee, however, has not seen fit to change. Though this re-
quirement is the stiffest in college. still it should not chill competition to the
degree that it has in the past. It behooves the student body to take hold of
track in earnest and not confine itself only to a relay team, however good a
one it may be. XVe have the material for all of the events if they will only
stir themselves a bit.
At this early writing all discussion of the baseball season must be speculative.
We bid fair, however, to turn out a highly respectable team. notwithstanding
the fact that only two or three of our old men are back. Wle hardly stand a
show for the baseball championship after all is said, but with such an efficient
manager we feel sure that baseball is not going to plunge the Athletic Associa-
tion into debt. The Executive Committee has had under consideration the
further differentiation of the baseball letter from the football letter by adopting
a different style of letter for baseball and leaving the black letter for football
only. This is a much needed reform.
During the past year the College has been glad to welcome both a basket-
ball team and an eight-oared crew. Wfhile neither of these organizations are
at present recognized by the Athletic Association, still they are in a very flourish-
ing condition and bid fair to rapidly develop up to a point where they can
demand of the Athletic Association both financial support and 'varsity letters.
To do this it will be necessary for both of them to concentrate their attention
upon inter-collegiate matches and turn out teams that can cope successfully with
those of the other colleges of the State. The question of finances is the great
handicap that faces the crew, as iti is an acknowledged fact that a crew is never
self-supporting. XVith the basket-ball team it is a lack of proper gymnasium and
court facilities. Perseverence, however, can overcome both of these, and with
our early removal to Wfesthampton we are assured an open stretch of water
on the river and a modern gymnasium.
The past session has been noteworthy for the appeal that athletics has made
to the average student. The most notable expression of this was the radical
change in events selected for Field Day. The committee has attempted to in-
terest tl1e whole student body by zulcling 21 goocl lllilllj' events of 11op11lz1r i11terest
that do not require tl1e lJl'2lWll and zibility that tl1e regular athletic events clo.
This is sure to make our 21111111111 lfielcl Day even 111ore popular than heretofore.
Then there are few stuclents who are not regular users of the tennis courts.
X-Ve are szully in neecl of more and better courts. Lxgillll the intei'-1lo1'n1ito1'y and
inter-class contests. which have becoine so popular dnring the past year. are

Edward A. Dunlap, Jr., Coach
Elnuuxim A. DLlNI..Xl'V, JR., First took charge of the Athletics at Richmond
Collefre in September, 1905. He came to us from Bowdoin College, Me., and
with his coming every branch of athletics has assume-:l proportions unthought of
before. The baseball and football teams which he has had the making of, have
taken their place in the foremost ranks among the teams of merit and ability
both in this State and Carolina. Wlhen he came, track and field athletics were
things unknown at Richmond Collegeg but thanks to his energy, they were given
a start, and have become more and more important and the objects of more and
more enthusiasm every year since his arrival.
han all this, he has stood firmly, not only at college but through-

out the city and State, or w 3 . V A ..
reciation of this fact will make the services of such a coach far
more valuable to the college even than championships.

baseball is supreme, so far as sports are concerned, it can't be
.Vj..LSIfP!F4,71 said that Richmond College is supreme in the number ot games
43337 won. On the other hand the season so far has been somewhat
of a disappointment. flt was not expected, of course, at the
j outset that Richmond College 'would win all the games on her
L- " lk-' schedule. Out of eight games played, Richmond Colleg'e has
three to her credit-Union Tehological Seminary, Medical College of Virginia.
and Pennsylvania College. This is not such a poor showing when it is remem-
bered that the Spiders have been np against some of the strongest teams in
Virginia and North Carolina.
One of the chief weaknesses with tl1e team is their inability to hit the
ball. Some of the best hitters of last year seem to have lost their cunning. XVith
one or two exceptions, the College will put out one of the fastest fielding teams
in its history and with a pulling up in batting the Spiders should be able to give
a good account of themselves when they are pitted against their rivals.
f'Dutch" Revelle, the idol of Virginia fans, has had the men in charge for
sometime, and under his coaching the team has shown signs of great improve-
ment. He is taking especial care in training the infield while Coach Dunlap has
charge of the outheld. No doubt, following the working of these two heads
there will come a string of victories.
There has also been a great awakening of college spirit. Rallies are being
held every evening in the college chapel and great interest is being manifested by
the students. The men seem ready an-il willing to rally around their distinguished
Chief Rooter, "Patrick Henry" Bowie. Nobody but a man who has represented
his college in some athletic contest knows how important a factor college spirit is
in the bringing of victory to a college. The team must feel that their fellows
are behind them-then if they have the right sort of stuff in them they are
willing to die if necessary in order that they might bring victory to themselves
and their fellows.
The first championship game of the season will be played April 14th at
Broad Street Park with Randolph-Macon. and from comparative scores the
Spiders will be able to give the Yellow Jackets all they are looking for and maybe
a little bit more. Heres hoping.

i'C-wgTg?:ff'?ft-112 Track Season of 1909-IQIO opened with three vacancies on
77 the relay team left by Lankford, Lodge and Meek. At first there
Yi' Nl was every reason to be optimistic, for an excellent squad rallied
ll T, to the call for applicants, and, after a series of try-outs, the
'QW 'Y' Taylor. The withdrawal of Gilman from College, however, left
vacant Jlaces on the team were filled bv Gilman V'ui0li'm 'ind
c c 1 c . L A c . n b 1 4.
Q-gfvi 'ex T ,Liu
Q Tn, las a further vacancy which was immediately Filled by Sutherland.
Much was expected of this combination, but the team
gradually lost strength as the season progressed and the great things were not
realized. lt did, however, show up very well in the George Wlashington and
the Georgetown Meets, both held in W'ashington, D. C. Sydinor deserves much
credit for winning the third place in the mile 1'l1ll against a Field of nearly forty
at the George XYashington Meet.
Again at the Second Annual Indoor Meet ot Richmond College, held in the
Horse Show Building, on lfehruary l2lQl1. the relay team covered itself with much
glory in defeating Randolph-ltlacon and Wiilliam and Mary in the championship
mile relay, the tinishing man having nearly lapped his opponents.
This indoor meet was something of an innovation, being held on a dirt track
instead of the customary board tloor, and though had weather diminished the at-
tendance and the gate receipts somewhat. the meet proved to be highly successful.
attracting such institutions as the Cniversity of Virginia, John Hopkins University.
George Wiashington University, Maryland Agricultural College, XVashington and
Lee University, Fredericksburg College. Randolph-Macon College, XVilliam and
Mary College, Baltimore City College. Xtoodherry Forest School. XVestern High
School, Episcopal High School, John Marshall High School. Richmond Academy.
McGuire's Cniversity School. and many other schools an-il organizations.
The indoor track meets of Richmond College, though but two years old. have
already firmly established themselves in the hearts of the sport-loving population
of Richmond. The building in which they are held is splendidly adapted for an
indoor meet, being steam-heated, and the events provided are of high order with
the keenest of competition. Much interest is manifested in the relay events. No
pains are spared to provide the winners with suitable trophies. and the medals
furnished have brought forth the most favorable ol' comments. XYith their
growing popularity We look forward to seeing our annual meet become the supreme
sporting event ot the midwinter season in Richmond.
The College at large had hoped to see developed to a state of reality the
plans for a dual track meet with Randolph-Macon, but things did not materialize
and the meet could not be arranged, much to the disappointment ot the 'track
team. But here's hoping that next spring will see Randolph-Macon face the
sturdy Spiders in Broad Street Park to go down in defeat.

HE year 1908-'09 marked the initial beginning of tennis at Rich-
x -? mond College. Never betore had any attempt been made to, put
is out a tennis team, consecgluently, no special interest was manifest
yl T,g in tennis circles. Prior to this time only a few engaged in the
sport at all and they were Ollly playing to get a little exercise,
,Ti and for that reason they did not exert themselves very much.
which is necessary to develop good tennis players.
'QM 'A' '-L' In the 'tall of IQOS several of the boys, who were especially
interested in the game, got together and begun agitating the question among the
students and also brought it to the attention of those in anthorityg this greatly
increased the number of participants in this phase of athletics. Now so many were
daily engaged in the sport it was necessary to have more courts and better ones.
So we went to those in authority and persuaded them to tix tl1e courts. which
we then had, and to make others, for they were not sufficient for the large number
ot men who were 11ow engaged in the game. Nvllkfll they had done this and
had the courts in a good condition we were in a much better position to choose
a team for the men could now demonstrate their ability as tennis players.
ln the early spring of 1909 a tournament was held to select the two best
men to be known as the tennis team of Richmond College. M. E. Elmore and
J. ll. Hill were the successful ones. Having chosen a team, the manager, who
had been appointed by the president of the Athletic Association, then arranged
several games with dilterent colleges. The colleges played were: Union Theo-
logical Seminary, two games: Wiilliam and Mary. one game: Randolph-Macon,
two games, and the 'University of Virginia, one game.
Though they were not victorious in all of the games, still they were suc-
cessful considering the 'tact that this was the tirst time they had ever played with
any college. The success of the team was demonstrated by the fact that the
Athletic Association recognized it as being one of the major athletic sports
and awarded letters to the members of the team and the manager. This gave
tennis a boom and encouraged others to try for the team.
Wlhen the session of 1909-IO opened a large number of men came out and
exercised themselves by indulging in the game. Only one game was played i11
the fall and that was with the University of North Carolina. They were in the
State for several games and so they had a game with the college, which resulted
in a victory for the visitors as happened in all the games played in the State.
The teams with whom we will compete this spring are: Wlilliam and Mary.
Randolph-Macon, Union Theological Seminary, and a trip to North Carolina, on
which trip we are expecting to play the University, XValce Forest, Davidson and
probably others. The prospects are brighter this year than last and we hope to
turn out a winning team against our proper competitors.

j'7:.TC?:trgii' HAS been quite a few years sincg Richmond College students
x have heard the yell-Ready All! btroke!-and have seen their
Yu v trim eight-oared shell race away from the landing and skim the
X- l4 waters of the muddy, but historic. james.
Early in the spring the Virginia lloat Club kindly olfered
the use of their shells and clubahouse to. Richmond College .to
gcjgflggfot prepare for a race. A call was issued in the college for big.
"' "' strong an-il husky men to make a place in the shell. To tlns
call the men responded valiantly and now everything is pointing to success.
It was trying at first and the men came away with blistered hands and tired
bodies, but nevertheless resolved to stick to the task. They laughed in the face
of difliculties and grimly set themselves to overcome them. Fifteen strokes was
all they could pull at the start. but they had the capacity for growth and im-
provement so that now. even against adverse currents they pull constantly thirty
long hard strokes. This bespeaks pluck. courage and dauntlessness which will
Now we expect to give a very creditable performance and reliect honor
upon old Richmond College. W'e have won before and we hope to win again.
Several of the men, who expect to win a place in the shell are men who
can show an "R" for football fame. They have covered themselves with glory
on the field and now we expect them to bring honor upon the College and them-
selves on the water. We count ourselves fortunate in having four experienced
men as a nucleus around which to build our crew. They are Captain johnson,
Tyler and Hazlet, all football men and members of the crack eight of the Yir-
ginia 'lloat Club. of which Tyler was stroke: and Knight former stroke and
captain of the crew of the Manual Training High School of l'hiladelphia. Among
the new men we have Parker, Long, Montgomery, Smith. XV. R., Smith. T. I-I.,
Durrum. Kershaw. and Danner.
We wish to express our appreciation and thanks for the kind offer of the
Virginia Boat Club. and the very courteous treatment they have accorded us.
Let us hope that our enthusiasm shall not wane and that next year an even
more experienced and worthy crew will be wearing the 1'ed and blue.

The Mu Sigma Rho Literary Society
Dy J. F. Cizoeij, ll. A., 'o8.
yy jg' HE Mu Sigma Rho Society of Richmond College was organized
T. :fn . . , . T
A S 'ht' October 19, 1846, through tl1e u111o11 ot tl1e Washington and Lo-
lumbia11 Societies of RiCll1I1tJlltl College, and l1eld its lirst meeting
under the title of the Mu Sigma Rho Society, October 17, 1846.
QXXWQ At this meeting a constitution and by-laws were formulated,
u,'E"i 'yy and the body elected Xdfilliani Royster their first president. Tl1e
it mst question debated in this Society was, ls success m life
-- 'A"-- owing more to nature a11d original talent, or to perseverance ?"
From the time of organization to February 3. 1849. the Society met in the
Academic Hall. From February to, 1849, to October 13, 1853, it met in the
Chapel of Richmond College. Even at such an early day tl1e old records show
that we had some spirited and ambitious men. They could not bear the thought
of meeting as a Literary Society ill tl1e same hall i11 which. at certain periods of
the year, they sat and dreamed over 2111 "examination boar-il." So they decided
to leave this unfortunate chapel and "go up higher." Thus they entered the
present Mu Sig111a Rho Hall. "The Society being i11 a good condition spent its
Sl1e worked "without ceasing" T1'Zll1'1ll1g l'lC1' 111611 for tl1e great responsibilities
of future life. Not only did she lflllll them to be lawyers, doctors, preachers
and l'meu" in the commercial world, but sl1e trained them to be heroes upon
the field of battle. For suddenly, in 1861, her progress was brought to a close
for a season and l1er sons were called forth 1113011 the battletiel-il to engage i11
o11e of tl1e greatest causes that ever throbbed in a lllllllilll l1eart.
In l1er "ante-bellum" days she publisl1ed two magazines. From lS5l' to
1859 sl1e published "The CffUtlIftIf0l',H a magazine written by l1a11d and read before
tl1e Society. Fro111 1858 to 1860 she published "Tha .lfu Signza Rf10IIl'lllll Star,"
a magazine also written by hand and SllOXVll'lQ' a great deal of talent as well as
After the struggle of lS6l-'65 her sons or her son's sons returned to her
sacred walls, and o11 October 5, 1866, they reorganize-Ll tl1e Mu Sigma Rho
Society. .-Xt this noble meeting tl1e following gentlemen were present: Messrs.
C. lilryce, lil. Code. T. Carpenter, E. li. Chaney, l-I. Ford, O. XV. Tiughart,
T. Hughes and C. T. james. students, and l'rofessors Harris and Harrison, of
the Faculty. C. T. plames was elected president.
Thus the Mu Sigma Rho again took up her work of training men to think,
to write Zl11Cl to speak. And in her l1all to-day l1er present 1llCl11lJGl'S may stand,
looking into the noble face of Deniostlienes, and gather from l1i1n some of his
eloquence. a11d looking into the face of Cicero may receive the inspiration sufh-
cient to make their oratory equal. if 11ot surpass, the ol-il Latin orator himself.

i'Cm1'g5'tf.5i' HREE score years ago, less live, our fathers-C, H. Ryland, W.
Ln" L E. Hatcher, T. . Binford and fourteen others-brought forth
f' w . . . . . b
at this Colle-'fe a new hterar f societ ', conceived in the idea that
J T l. rivalry promotes progress, and dedicated to the thoughts sug-
,"w 12, of learning the depths of meaning in our name. Wfe meet each
SCM' up week to train another hand of men to be Plzilologizzus, and to
honor our name, the one our fathers gave us. But in the largest
sense we cannot hallow that name. Our sires have done and are doing that,
more than we can hope to do. The world has never heard of us, perhaps it never
will, but it has honored and is honoring such of Olll' number as C. H. Ryland,
XX' jj ' . . . . .
gested in our name, Plzilologzmz. VVe are engaged in the work
-J.. -4- --EU
XV. E. Hatcher, R. B. Boatwright, father of our present College presideutg
such as Smith, founder The llIUssc1Lgvl', and XVl1l11CI' of the first writer's medal,
R. E, Loving, P. VV. james, McDaniel, Templeman, Harwood, Hutchison, and
others-but why need I mention them? The world will little note what we say
of them, it will ever remember what they are doing.
Let us then turn from the study of history and of men to the making of
history and developing of men-readers, writers, orators, debaters. Let us be
dedicated to our own tasks, to assist and encourage each other in the cultivation
of our powers of tongue and pen, so that each of us may struggle with success
to attain the goal suggested in this motto of our Society, Rostm ct pemza.

, , NYORD of thanks is due the contributors to this department.
gm V They have been loyal to our callg we must show our loyalty to
A 'i i them. Thus, we talce this opportunity of expressing our ap-
'll W preciation.
' A - ' : , . , . .
..,'7cgQ.7 ,233 We have included in this department two medal selections
AQQQ' of 1908-1909, and one of 1909-1910. "The Non-Athletic Ameri-
can" won the orator's medal in the Philologian-Mu Sigma Rho
. ,L , .
contest on April 6, 1909. hxvilll l"an's Stars" was the winner in
the writer's contest between the two societies in May, 1909. They are not repre-
sentative of the work of the present session, but the contests were held two late
to publish the article in rl-lllli 5171111511 of 1909. "'Victories of Peace" secured first
place in the orator's contest on April S, 1910. Tn addition to these, we must
mention 'fThe Xlfhite Parasol," which won in a recent Athenaeum Club contest.
This latter, and all other contributions not mentioned above, are now given
to the public for the first time. They are illustrative of the enthusiasm that has
been so prevalent in Richmond College since the appearance of the last SPIDER.
This enthusiasm has asserted itself in many ways. In the first place, a need was
felt, at the beginning of the session, for an interchange of ideas of those officially
connected with, and vitally interested in "Tim 1lfC'S.S'C'IlgL"I',U and in the advance-
ment of the literary side of college life. Hence, tl1e Az'l1v11ac'1z11z Club. And, too,
the contributors to TI'Ili S1f1,1'n2R have, in nearly every instance, been faithful
supporters of "The 1llrssv1zgt'1'."" That magazine has adopted a higher standard.
And now, with the advent of THE SNDER of 1910, we trust that its literary
department will receive no less favor than has "Thr Jllcssr11gc'I'."'
VVe thank you for your support.

her rude bed there lay a sick girl. Her thin cheeks
were pale, except where the hot fever reddened them with an unnatural tint,
her eyes had lost their once bright light, her long straight hair lay loose over
her head' and shoulders. In her thin little hand she held a white lily, loosely
clasped. She was almost dying. Beside her sat her brother, looking sadly at
his pale sick sister. Occasionally a tear rolled down his brown cheeks, as he

Although this was in a far away land and a distant age, among a strange
people to our world. yet Wfan Fan and VVing Fu, this little Chinese girl and boy,
loved each other. They had no companions except such as they, just like boys
and girls of other lands, found among the hills and fields, and streams that flow
down from the Yauling mountains. They had friends among these, however,
for they played together in the daisy fields that cover Chuan in the autumn,
and made wreaths of these. They waded together in the mud of their father's
rice field, after he had Hooded it from the Yangtze River: they followed each
other over the hills and fields, chasing the butterflies, hunting birds' nests, and
especially the humming birdsg listening to the locust, which they loved especially,
and finding companions in all of nature's works. The customs among the Chinese

There was one thing that cast a shadow over the lives of these little Chinese
children, from the time they were nine years old. It was the death of their
little brother, who had died when he was but two years old. VVe know why this
put such a shadow over the lives of these two little children when we think of the
Chinese conception of death.
The "River of Death" which we speak of figuratively is made into a Moun-
tain of Death by the Chinese. They believe the spirit must pass across a lofty
range of mountains to go into the other world. The idea, though vague, is full
of awful reality for the Chinese mind. The thought that his spirit must cross
aone over the rough, pathless mountains, with the possible chance of having
to wander untold ages in them if he loses the way, fills the Chinese with a dread
of death. They think of their fathers and grandfathers who have died and pos-
sibly been unable to -find their way over the mountains, and they put out food
by their graves for them to eat until their spirit can make the perilous journey.
XVan Fan and Wfing Fu knew of the mountain of death, and often talked about
it, and wondered what the land was like which lay beyond. They could see the
great towering Yanling mountains in the west, which seemed to reach almost
to the sky, and thought this was a part of the dreaded mountains, and wondered
how high, or wide, or steep, they were. Wihen looking at then1 memories of
that little brother who had died came to them and they tried to think, but could

years alone upon the cold, bleak hills.

dread idea of death and the spirits' lonely
journey, and the thought of their brother's wandering spirit made them sad
before they left to go to their little beds, and they dreamed about the mountains,
and the stars and their little brother.
There was one group of stars which lVan Fan loved more than all the
rest. lt was a group of seven stars which came out a little after sun-down and
shone about three hours before it set. As she watched these with her brother
she felt that they knew her for they seemed to twinkle brighter when she looked
at them awhile, and before they went down behind the mountains it looked as
if they paused a moment to let a last, bright beam fall upon Wfan Fan's cheek.
Om' llznnlrerl anal .Yinvry-ann
Wfing Fu thought so too. These children grew to love their seven stars and
sometimes a faint hope crept into their little hearts that perhaps when they came
to die, and their spirits started over the pathless hills the seven stars would
guide them into the valley on the other side.
The days went by and the little Chinese boy and girl were watching the
mountains daily, and nightly thought and dreamed about them and the seven
bright stars, until one day Wfan Fan was taken sick. The medicine man came
with his charms and herbs and prayed to the spirit of her ancestors to come
and cure her. He rubbed her forehead with rice leaves and burnt them on
the north side of the house that her fever might be blown to the north and
frozen. He bathed her lips with dew gathered from the lotus leaves, but neither
this nor any of the other medicines did VVan Fan any good. Each day l1er
little hands grew thinner. the hollows in her once round cheeks grew deeper,
an unnatural tlush was always upon her brow. The fever was slowly eating
away her life.
Wfing Fu watched by his sister's side, and daily brought water to cool
her hot head. He gathered flowers each morning and laid them by her pillow,
and talked with her about the things they both thought of, the mountains, the
seven stars, and the spirit of that little brother who died so long ago. He
moved her bed where she might lie and look toward the mountains. She loved
to watch the sun go down, but more than that she loved to see her own seven
stars come out and drop slowly down the slope toward the tops of the awful
mountains. As long as they shone she was glad, she was not afraid, thoughts of
the lonely mountains did not terrify her then, but when they had dropped out
of sight a loneliness crept into her little heart and she tightly held hold of
NVing Fu's hand.
As days went by Wfan Fan grew weaker. Her little form grew thinner and
more frail. lkfing Fu knew this too and often lay awake half the night think-
ing and crying about his little sick sister. Sometimes the thought of the cold
mountain came to him. Suppose Wfan Fan should die. Could she ever End
the way over the pathless mountains? NVould she not be lost in the great
hills and woods? Perhaps the wild beasts would tear her up, or the terrible
mountain snakes would terrify her. He sometimes thought that if she should
die he also would wish to die, that he might go with her over the cold, bleak
mountains. Perhaps both would be lost, yet they would be together.
XVan Fan also thought of death. She had seen that little baby brother die
three years before and had cried many times when thinking of him. She believed
she was soon to die. But. O, the cold, pathless mountains! CJ, the loneliness
of that dread journey! She shut her eyes at the sight. Xkiing Fu knew her
heart too. He also was afraid. But as these thoughts came over them and
made them sad, while they both were silent, often the sun went down and the
Om' Iltltlflrml mul Avfllffjl-IIVU
seven stars came out and shone more brightly and clearly than ever. Perhaps
their brightness was increased by the tears of Wiiig' Fu and VVan Fan. VVhen
they came out the little sick girl was happier. She was not afraid then, and
presently her little fever-flushed face brightened up, and she turned and said,
t'XVing Fu, I am going to die, but if I can die just as 1ny stars go down I will
not be afraid. I had not thought of it before, but I believe they will guide me
over the mountains. They have gone over so often and know the way."
The days went by and the little Chinese girl grew weaker. The fever
was slowly eating away her life. She lay upon her bed late one evening. Wfing
Fu had gone out and gotten the largest, whitest lily he could find, and brought
it and put it in his sister's hand, and sat by her. The sun was nearly down.
Wfan Fan lay looking at her brother, but seldom spoke. Occasionally she looked
toward the Yanling mountains. XVing Fu watched too. Twilight came. One by
one a lone star took its place in the western sky, and began to sink below the
hills. WVing Fu watched his sister, and knew that she was looking for her seven
stars. Presently they appeared. VVan Fan saw them and a gleam of light shone
in her eyes for the stars had come and would guide her across the mountains.
W'ing Fu sat watching the group of stars slowly traveling down the slope
toward the dim mountain tops, and thinking of his sister. He then looked at
her. I-fer eyes were shut. A Hush of fever was upon her brow. He loved her
more than ever now. but wished that she might die before the seven stars went
down, so that they might guide her over the dreadful mountains. The seven
stars went down. NV ing Fu saw the last spark disappear behind the dark ridge
of the mountains, and was fearful: for his little sister lay almost dying now,
and the guiding stars were gone. How could sister now find her way over
the pathless mountains? Her little soul would become lost in the hills and
woods forever, and he could not bear the thought.
The ltitle group of stars had been down about five minutes when W'an
Fan turned her head, and. though apparently unconscious, whispered, "Have
my stars gone yet ?"
Wfing Fu could not answer, for he knew that she was going to die and the
stars were gone, so he just sat looking toward the west while he held the hot
hand of his sister in his. Suddenly there appeared a bright star above the
peaks in the west, just where a few moments before he had seen the seven stars
go down. It rose higher, and another star was seen, beside it, then another,
and soon the seven stars began to rise up from the mountain tops. and mount
higher and higher until they were nearly an hour high. W'ing Fu did not know
what it meant but sat looking at his sister at his side. 'She slowly opened her
eyes, looked at him a second, then turning them toward the west caught a glimpse
of the seven bright stars. I-Ier face lit up, a new light seemed to shine out from
her eyes, and she whispered faintly, "Now I'n1 not afraid," and then was still.

VVing Fu sat ,watching as he held her now pulseless hand, then turned' toward
the West and looked at the seven brighter stars, now still. A soft breeze blew
up and fanned the brow of Xalan Fan as it grew colder, then kissed her pale
yellow cheek, a bright gleam from the stars shone upon her eyes awhile, the wind
sobbed about her hair a moment, then blew off to the western hills, and the stars
went down carrying the spirit of Xalan Fan over the mountains.
VVing Fu sat silent. He knew his sister was dead, but her-did not fear. The
stars went down then came back, and waited for the spirit .of Xalan Fan, and
guided her over the mountains. He saw them going down the second time.
Just when they were half way down to the mountain peaks a bright, shooting
star went across the sky toward the west. Wfing Fu thought that was his sister's
soul. Soon another followed it, just a tiny shooting star that seemed to follow
the path of the brighter one. then both disappeared behind the Yanling mountains.
VVing Fu believed the tiny shooting star was his little brother's spirit, and he
too had been guided over the pathless mountains by the seven stars, and trusting,
he was glad. I. F. GULITIK.
The Burning Broomstraw
The southwind sends a Zephyr rare
Across the hillside bleak and bare,
And broomstraw burning tills the air-
In the farewell days of autumn.
W'hen broonistraw burned in by-gone days,
The sun shone through a mystic haze,
And Bessie and I trod beautiful ways-
In the golden days of autumn.
A glory wrapped the fading earth,
E'en watching over winter's birth:
The brooklet sang a song of mirth-
ln the happy days of autumn.
The broomstraw burned no more of old-
The winter's wind came bleak and eold
And brushed aside the rods of gold-
In the hoary days of autumn.
YVe parted forever. In heartache and fears
NVe fancied the fathomless future years
On the banks of the brook of sorrowful tears-
ln the sad, dead days of autumn,
'But the broomstraw burned again to-day
Out on the hillside high and gray,
And sadness nor sorrow could take away-
My dreams of the days of autumn.

The Crushed Petals
j'CJ.'2S'rr3f XVAS just a year ago that I was called to London on important
:gy business. Hurrying down the Strand one afternoon, I met
T Illton Clairvoy, an artist, who had been my roommate at college.
ll Clairvoy was a rare individual whom everybody loved, particu-
xyf larlv women, but with few of whom he would form an intimate
friendship. At least, such was the mood of the man when I
QQ., wfs left him in Italy, nine years before, after a fruitless endeavor to
X ' - .4
"' 'A' 'Ak persuade him to return with me to America. I heard regularly
from him for several months but his letters were brief and to the point. From
them I learned that he was happy in the solitude of the Swiss mountains and
in the romantic atmosphere of the little town of Interlaken. Then his corres-
pondence suddenly ceased, and I heard nothing more of him until I went to
London last year. ,
He was much changed. His face was worn, andvhis beard and hair around
his temples were almost white. Ilut his old, good natured heart remained, and he
made me go to his rooms, and urged me to call them my home while in London.
Vtfe spent many a pleasant evening together, talking over our old escapades,
and living again the wild. delirious days at the university. But there was one
period of his life, of which he seemed prone to silence-the months spent in
the little Swiss village. I had found a crushed rosebud in his Bible, and some-
how I fancied its petals, which seemed to have been once white, knew more
than they could tell. Unconseiously, I connected it in some way with his
stay in Interlaken. At last, one evening over our wine and cigars, I succeeded
in drawing from him the story of this period.
:1: :x: ra: :H :i: 22:
Upon my departure, Clairvoy soon left Italy for Switzerland. I-Ie went
into raptures as he pictured to me his drive to Interlakeng and seemingly for-
getful of his narrative, he rambled on for many minutes describing his journey.
Twilight- had just darkened into evening when he entered the quaint village of
Interlaken, with its low, ambling houses and their stone-weighted roofs. ,Iungfrau
extended its hoary head toward heaven: the moon filled the vales of Lanter-
brunnen and Grindelwald with a soft light.
As Clairvoy approached the Hotel Greidelweiss, notes of music stole to him
through the night air. It was "Dixie," After supper, he strolled out on the
piazza, that faced the Iungfrau. In the shadow, there was a woman, playing a
violin. She looked up at his approach.
"Elton Clairvoylu she exclaimed.
One Ilullrlrml and Ninety-jizfc
These two old school mates, who had not met for years, learned much about
each other's affairs that night. There is nothing more pleasant to a lonely
traveler than to meet a familiar face, even though, orrflinarily, that face might
be unattractive. But I have reason to believe that under no circumstances would
Clairvoy have shunned Louise Renard. She was one of the few girls of whom
I had heard him speak and he had frequently mentioned her. .-Xt any rate, I
find on reading over his letters of this period, that he was not as hostile to
womankind as before. A letter from him, dated a few weeks later, contained
the following passage.
"Y bv1z'v-:iv you wrote mv you were llZCIl'I'fCtl. You uzust be lmppy. I Imac
bcgzuz to think that uffvr all ll man floalizzg 011 the Sm of Lift' like a bubble Olll
the ocean is in tl ratlzcr bad plight. He needs somvtlzing to alzclzor fo."
But not once in his correspondence, did he mention the young woman who
had gone to the Swiss mountains for rest, and a possible escape from the death
that was threatening her.
Many an evening, he told me, they sat and watched the sun fade below the
mountains, and the sky redden and then pale, as the clouds Hoated by and left
only the blue sky above them. Many a morning, they walked out into the
vale, and coming upon some hight waterfall which shone rose-pink in the sunls
rays, as it dashed from the cliff, and then almost disappeared in a vapor before
it reached the valley below, they would sit and talk of old Virginia, and of the
happy days of their early school life.
f'It seems to me," he said, one day, "that nothing in the New Wforld can
compare with this. My whole frame feels fresher than a school boy's at the
close of the session."
t'Possibly it is the rest, Elton. You needed rest after your long college
"No, Louise, I think it is the companion I have had with me."
Perhaps it is in the food one eats or the water one drinks in the village of
Interlaken, that causes it, but whether this is or is not the case, I know, at least
that when one gazes on jungfrau, he finds in his heart an intense longing to
scale the summit.
Thus did Clairvoy excuse his attempt to accomplish what he afterwards
said was a very foolish feat. One morning he set out with some guides and
a few others to reach the top of the "Maiden of the Alps? All went well
until they were about half way up, when the rope which was necessary for the
perilous ascent, broke, and a guide and tourist were hurled to death two thousand
feet below. The others had a narrow escape, and when they were rescued some
hours later, all of them were suffering from severe bruises and frozen limbs.
Clairvoy had a broken leg and other serious injuries.

For many days he lay, for the most part, unconscious. I-Iis brain was
frozen. the little French doctor stated on the second day.
Louise would allow no one to take her place at his side unless forced to do so.
"Surely," he told me with a slight sigh, "could I have known while lying
there. what hands were ministering to 1ne, I think I should have been contented
to remain there without waking."
Wfhen he was well enough to sit up, she often sat with him, telling him
many of the legends that saturate the Swiss atmosphere. I-Ie was gazing at a
painting-it was that of the brave St. l3eruard dogs saving lost travelers on the
"How beautiful that is!" he said. "Do you remember how at school we
read that story together? I should like so much to have such a painting."
The next day she brought her easel into the sick ll'l2l.1'l'S room and began
a picture in imitation of it. I-Ie soon recovered. They were again seated at
eventide, watching the light recede from around Jungfrau, and leave its hoary
head robed in a gloom of darkness. Louise playe-fl her violin, and l1C Sallg
many of the melodies they loved. They were both contented and happy, and once
again they fell to talking of the Swiss life and legends.
"There are many tales toldf' she said, "of Iungfrau. Have you heard the
origin of its name ?',
"I have heard many tales about ity but I don't know which to believe."
"It is claimed that it was named Iungfrau because they thought the virgin
snow on its summit would never be trodden by foot of man. This, though, has
been done. You also tried to win this fair maiden, but she jilted you."
"But I have won the fairest maiden in Virginia," he replied.
Hay-making was at its best. Clairvoy and Miss Renard were seated one
day beside a timid little brook, gaily rippling along in its course. The wind
brought to them the odor of the fresh-cut fields in the distance, where they
could see chubby young girls gathering hay on their forks and tossing it upon
the low ox cart, where an old man stood carefully packing-it. All of them
"I-Iow happy those peasants seem to be," she said. "Come, let us join
them and be children once more before you leave. You will soon be gonef,
she added, "and I shall not enjoy these things then as I do now."
"I wish you were going with me, Louise."
They were soon gleefully laboring with the peasants-those children of
twenty-six and thirty. And they, too, joined in the songs. But there was a
shadow cast over them at the thought of Clairvoy's departure. Each had felt
that in this spot, living as they had done for the last few months, nothing but

happiness could come. But gradually while Clairvoy was enveloped in this blissful
apathy, his small fortune had been dwindling away. Seemingly he had for-
gotten it until he realized that some immediate step had to be taken.
So it was from necessity that he had decided at last to accept a professorship
in a small English college. And yet, he was happy. He believed that in a
few years he would have an income sufficient to permit him to marry Louise
Renard, and not be dependent upon her wealth. She would wait for him he
The evening before he was to leave they were again watching the chang-
ing moods of the -lungfrau. This "Maiden of the Alps" still seemed to shed
a benediction upon tl1en1, and around her head was now a tint half way between
pink and purple. The moon, wrapt in a vast halo, lighted the valley and the
little town. From far in the distance came a low, grumbling sound, which they
knew to be the fall of an avalanche.
Ulf must go," he said sadly, "and leave this grand old mountain. I could
wish for nothing better in this life or the next than to sit forever with you, and
gaze upon its lovely form."
"Must you go? VVhy not stay here? All would be well."
"It is for you I go. It best."
"Must you go?" she repeated.
In the silent, fading moonlight, he sat by her side and fought against the
temptation to remain. .lt was a bitter struggle between pride and love. As they
came from the shadow into the moonlight, one might have told by their faces
that it had been hard for both.
He stooped, gently kissed her forehead, and lifting a white rosebud from
her hair, went to his room.

Clairvoy was silent for a while. Unconsciously he smoked his cigar until
the fire touched his finger. It roused him from his revery. As he threw down
the stump, he said, with a sigh:
"She went to flier rest, such as the Swiss mountains could not give."

Thru the crystal of day and the opaque of night,
O'er seas where the breeze is higherg
On a barque which is seorniug lifes cables that bind,
And that, laughing. at doubt has sailed forth now to find
The Shore ol' My Hearts Desire.
Oh, my ship has past into the Port where the glare
And the radiant glow of white lights seemed so fair
And sounded its' passions mire,
Yet the Ilame burned the sail and the harbor was vain,
And the Port bells were loud, so it bore out again
For The Shore of My Hearts Desire.
Oh, my ship long since entered the Port of Success
'VVhere the siren-call wanes, where the soul may find rest,
From the scar of ambitions fireg
But the joy was not there which the voyage had dreamed,
And with all of its glory, the Port never seemed
As the Shore of My 1-leart's Desire.
Oh, my ship, dearest heart, still shall roam o'er the deep,
Wfhere the wild surging billows, its canvass will sweep,
Till it hear the recall of love's lyreg
VVhen my ship's anchored fast by the light in your eyes,
Vilhen the dew on your lips my souls thirst satisfies,
iTis The Shore of My I-leart's Desire.

he Non-Aesthetic American
E civilization of a people is not revealed by the power of a
nation's armed forces. It is indicated neither by wealth nor age,
nor extensive realms. The genius of a few gifted men, the
brilliant songs of a few inspired poets, the plaintive melodies of
a few musicians are all indications of individual reiinement and
culture, but do not necessarily mark any high degree of civiliza-
tion as regards a nation as a whole. The Kingdom of Russia
can boast of subjects who rank high among the leaders ot the
world, but surely no one will affirm that the people of that land have advanced
to any great extent on the evolutionary ladder. Deeper than mere power. deeper
than individual genius must we go for the main factor in civilization. And when
we are on the busy thoroughfare, when we enter the homes an-Ll gather round the
firesides, then, and not till then, does it dawn upon us that civilization rests
upon the spirit and character of the people as a whole.
Mans claim to distinction over the lower animals is warranted in just so
much as his rennement has reclaimed him from the savage state. Ytlhen this
distinction reaches its highest point we have civilization, which finds its truest
expression in literature, art and a love for the beautiful. These three qualities
assure man's advancement: for from them are born honesty, industry, broad-
mindedness and nobility of character, and when they are possessed other virtues
are of necessity included. X1Vithout them civilization cannot exist in its truest
sense, and in their absence man declines. '
XVhen a nation becomes so imbued with the Herceness of commercialism,
that she makes money her God, and her doctrine materialism, the result is always
a degeneracy of the aesthetic senseg and this degeneracy may be measured in
direct proportion to the advance of the commercial and the material spirit.
VVhen l say that corruption of the aesthetic sense is one of the worst evils
that can befall a people. and that the love of the beautiful in nature is the highest
form of the aesthetic sense, and when I add that the love of nature has been
the inspiration of the larger part of great literature and art, there are those,
perhaps, who will doubt my words. But I a1n merely stating what the ages and
present condition have proved. For if we ask ourselves to what great in-
fluence have been due some of the masterly works of literature, that we all
ponder over, we may look about us for an answer and fail to
find one till there comes to us the thought of nature. And when we wonder
why it was that ancient Greece rose to such heights of artistic and cultural
development, we will be at a loss to know the cause till there rises before us
the vision of the blue skies, the green fields and the sloping hillsides of fair
Athens. Oftimes we have marveled that Italy should have produced more
great men than any other nation under the sun, and yet the reason is apparent-
here too it is nature. Yes nature, from the earliest memory of men on down
through the centuries, has been the inspirer of great deeds. Her influence has
made itself felt upon men of all ages, and the result has been beautiful literature
and beautiful art.
The sense in which I use the term, "Love of the beautiful in naturef' does not
necessarily confine itself to a regard for the sublime. I cannot believe that any
man's aesthetic sense could be so dwarfed, so narrow that he could stand and
watch some rapid stream sweep onward in its rocky bed and suddenly plunge
over a great precipice, and the sun, shining on the falling waters, forming every
color of the rainbow and turning the spray to glistening jewels, l say I cannot be-
lieve that any man would be unmoved by such a sight. And who can stand
upon the height of some great mountain and look down into the valleys far
away and behold a vast region stretching away to the horizon, without feeling
a certain indefinable sensation creeping over him and a nameless desire to reach
out into the mysteries of life and solve the great problems of existence? But
in the mad rush of modern life, how many of ns ever stop to admire the simple
beauties that are always around us. Few they are ,tis true, who like little
twigs, floating down stream, are caught by overhanging boughs and stayed in

and bubble along, rippling forth the gladness of spring-tide. The balmy air,
perfumed by the fragrance of the newly opened flowers is full of the joyous carols
of the song-birds, who intoxicated with the beauty and happiness of all things,
perch in the tree tops and pour forth their sweet songs in thrilling notes, until
eventide, when the sun, bidding them good-night, sinks slowly down the walls
of heaven and falls into darkness. And as the twilight deepens the moon rises
up where the sun has departed and the stars, coming out one by one, fill the
heavens with golden sparks-"the forget-me-nots of the angels." Yes nature is
at her loveliest in the springtime, and yet even from its influence we Americans
are slowly drifting away.
And literature, richest, noblest. best of this world's treasures-Listen. I
can hear the voice of Cicero as standing before those old senators in the dusty
chamber of the praetor's court, there fell from his lips such an eulogy on
literature as caused those old Romans to stir in their seats and has thrilled
posterity through and through with its message, "For other studies are not of
every time nor of every age or place," but these give strength in youth, and
joy in old age adorn prosperity. and are the support and consolation of ad-
versityg at home they are delightful and abroad no hindrance, at night they
are company to us, when we travel they do not forsake us. Though we our-
selves were incapable of them and had no relish for their charms, still we should
admire them when we see them in others.
And even literature is marred and blemished by the greed for wealth. For
believe me the modern author will sacrifice the reality of his characters, paint
a false picture of life, and cross the border-line of sensationalisin if by so doing
he caters to the depraved taste of a narrow-minded populace and insures the
sale of a few more hundred copies of his work.
As a result of the statement l have made, there has perhaps arisen in your
minds the question as to whether it would prove ultimately helpful to curb the
fierce spirit of commercialism, and thereby re-awaken a love for the beautiful
in nature. l know of no better way of trying the virtues of financial life than
by the test of happiness. lt is perhaps a broad ge,neralization,- but I think a true
one to say that those things which tend to make man really happy, happy in the
highest sense of the word, are good, and those which tend to make him miserable
and unhappy are evil. X'Vhat about commercialism? l have never had the ex-
perience of the leaders of finance, and so the instruction of the 'fgreatest teacher"
is denied me. llut l am persuaded that one may mount the heights to financial
fame, and stand upon the highest pinnacle of commercial achievement,
and gazing down upon the world beneath try to convince himself that he
is happy. and has conquered, yet deep within his soul he realizes that he has left
all that is good and true in life behind him, and ofttimes there's the sting of re-

fi: something between his teeth. The September sun, with a force

E " as some loosened sand came his way, brought by a frolicsome
breeze, and said something extravagant about the train and the
'X day that had brought him thither. In fact, Graham's frame of
M Q mind on this particular morning was not enviable, nor did the
.T 'continual pacing to and fro add to his good humor. It seemed
to him that for two days he had done nothing but walk and mope, and even
walking and moping inevitably became boring.
Graham had come to Linden under very trying circumstancesg two weeks
before Mabel had sailed for Egypt, having told him a farewell with a ring of
finality that he could not brook. She had no cause, he told himself, as he dug
his heel into the sand, absolutely no cause. Of course he had not intended to
tell Kershaw that he and Mabel were engaged, even though he had promised
her to say nothing until the summer frivolities were over. And why should
Mabel object so seriously to Kershaw's being let into the secret, Graham re-
called very vividly the last time he had seen her. I-le remembered that she was
bewilderingly beautiful that night. A deep flush suffused his face when he re-
called how angry he was when she had accused him of not caring enough for
her to comply in the least with her wishes. Some of the bitter taunts rang
through his ears. VVhen the cool air greeted him his mind grew clearer and he
wanted to go back and ask the forgiveness that came so readily to his lips, but
nog to-morrow would be soon enough. Then on the morrow he was told that
Miss Rutledge had sailed-that was all.
X!VO1'lC in the city became irksome and Graham decided to take a much-needed
rest: so in a couple of weeks he found himself at Linden.
The season had passed and the hotel was cleared of all save a couple of
salesmen, a few old ladies who embroidered incessantly, and Graham. The
outlook was not encouraging, and yet his curiosity had been aroused by the
daily appearance of a white parasol on the beach. He had not caught sight
of the eyes beneath, but something assured him that only a very pretty face could
crown the white form and be crowned by that parasol. lt was very provoking
that the owner should be staying at a cottage instead of at the hotelg it was still
more provoking that she refused to turn her face toward them. Graham deter-
mined not to allow himself to be so easily baffled. At this moment the girl was
Two Ill11l1h'1'rl und Sim
sitting on a sandhill not far away, and there was no reason why he should not
take her fortress by storm. There is very little a man will not venture when
rendered desperate by solitude. From under the rim of the parasol the girl must
have seen Grahanrs bold but unwise approach, for, just at the moment when
he was becoming assured of success, she gathered up her belongings and walked
rapidly in the direction of her cottage, leaving Graham to spend the afternoon
wondering why she came out no more.
After strolling away another hour, Graham decided to try his luck in the
billiard room, where he found the two salesmen.,
"Want to join us?" said a fat and good-natured individual. "Pitch in then.
TIVO were getting uneasy about you. Certainly am glad that you have not turned
into a lionf'
, Graham laughed dryly. .
"And may l ask," he said, 'Kwhy you feared that the slight change had taken
"Oh, come now, don't be sarcastic. lt is not becoming and you know you did
pace the beach like a lion, tiger, or something."
Graham smiled, and. picking up the cue, won the admiration of both by
a cool shot. There is nothing that binds a billiard player to a stranger like a
good play. It wins respect, and respect is a firm stepping-stone to friendship.
Graham found that the time passed more pleasantly in the billiard-room
than on the beach and he was about to forget his troubles when the more tactiturn
of his friends ventured a remark about the girl with the white parasol and asked
if Graham had noticed her.
"She is a deuced swell girl," he continued. "Used to come over here once
in a while and jgoin the 'Rocking Chair Brigade' but she has szfzuzg us of late.
Smith, will you ever forget the day I asked her to go in bathing and she refused
on the plea that it was September and went in that very afternoon alone F"
"Oh, she's like Hint," rejoined the fat drummer, "but being so good looking
makes up for it. I tell you if a woman's good looking ,taint much I can't stand
from her, but deliver me-"
Graham could not deny that his interest in the girl was increasing. A good
looking unapproachable girl, who walked with Mabel's vigorous step, and who
was sufhciently fearless to brave the September sea alone was undoubtedly allur-
ing. He swore a solemn oath not only to see the face beneath the parasol but to
meet the girl.
Wfhen he awoke the next morning he heard the dull patter of rain outside
his window and knew an even duller day was in store for him. At breakfast,
the gossip of the old ladies at the next table annoyed him unspeakably, so he
gulped down his coffee and sought the veranda. The day was somewhat chilly.
Tim 1111114111-11 :mtl NUITFIL
Throwing his overcoat around his shoulders and propping his, feet on the ban-
nister, he tried to persuade himself that he was comfortable. Pullingifrom his
pocket a copy of the "Rubaiyat." he let it open at random. but try as he would,
Graham could not keep the lines from blurring into a parody as he read-
XVere thou but here, my heart of love to teach-
No Hask of wine, no book of verse-but thou
Beside me chatting gaily on the beach,
Ffen Linden were Paradise enow.
He closed the book and tried the "Firing Line," confident that Chambers
could divert him. but he reached too soon the farewell scene between the lovers
and threw the book down in disgust. He decided that he was perfectly miserable
and began to hope that Mabel was not completely happy, but catching himself
in time wished her eternal prosperity in true story-book fashion. He asked
himself again and again why the girl with the parasol attracted him so forcibly.
Did she really walk like Mabel or was he so absorbed that even a stranger seemed
to imbibe characteristics of the lady of his dreams. Mabel Rutledge was cruising
on the Mediterranean, he kept repeating to himself, and was not consoled by
the thought. How long he sat staring before him Graham never knew, but at
last he leaped to his feet-
"'You fool !" he ejaculated, :fthe sun has come out and so has she."
Graham was right, for the girl, with sketch-book under her arm, was
making her way to the boat house. His first impulse was to continue the tactics
used so unsuccessfully the day before, but saner thought decided him to leave
her unmolested, for a time at least. On coming out from lunch he could
distinguish the white form and concluding that she had had ample time alone, he
sauntered down to the beach and paced up and down several times seeking re-
enforcement of courage. The girl must have read his thoughts, for again, just at
the moment that success seemed surest, she gathered up paints and papers and
fairly sped across the sand-drifts. Graham saw something flutter from her hand,
and waiting until the cottage door had slammed behind her, he rescued the
sketch. He examined it for a moment and then stood stupefied, bewildered.
It was he at the Brackenridge dance. Hot shame burned his cheek as he re-
called the episode and then the humor of the situation dawned upon him. The
drawing was excellent, and, as he recalled the evening, he ,decided that he must
have looked just as the picture represented him. There was the Brackenridge
girl, fat and awkward, lying in a heap on the floor, and there was he trying to
maintain his dignity and at the same time gather himself together and pick up
the girl. He touched the picture. The paint was not yet dry, so the girl who
had just made her hasty retreat was responsible for the caricature. Graham
was bewilderedg he sought for some clue but found himself more and more
T100 II111u1recZ and Eight
entangled in mystery, more unhappy as he became more perplexed. He knew that
the girl would not venture out as long as he remained on the beach. Consequently,
he found his way back to the veranda where his friends, the "drummers" were
'fGreat girl that, Doctor," chuckeled Smith, the fat one. "But I think it is
a shame for you to cause her so much embarrassment. Let her alone, man, if
she wants the whole beach to herself, let her have it."
Graham smiled good-humoredly, holding the drawing behind him. He had
learned to understand his jocular friend and not to allow himself to be ruffled.
'fShe shan't have all of it as long as I am here," he said, throwing himself
lazily into an armchair. 'Tm getting my sporting blood up."
"Hum, don't believe in VVoman's Rights, I supposef, was the sleepy com-
ment. 'fWell, I'm right with you. Can't say that I've stopped believing Adam
was made first. But it can't hurt to humor them once in a while. Bless their
hearts, they'1'e worth humoring and spoiling too-"
Graham tried to look indifferent, but felt that he was failing utterly. He
nervously threw away his cigarette and lit another.
"I believe you are right about that humoring proposition," he said. f'Ma11y
of us fail simply because we don't know how to humor. I'm thinking about
taking your advice, Smith. Are you sure it works Pi'
Smith chuckeled to himself. "You don't think I look like a ladies' man,
do you? I'm not much on the society stunts like you tall, good-looking fellers
that sport gray Hannels when you come to the beach, but I've my share of
common sense, and a fellow that peddles soon gets to knowing human nature
pretty well. They're alike man. all over the world and they all need humoring.
I've learned to humor 7110111 when I want to make a big sale, but they arn't worth
it except on a business proposition. But you lady-killers ought to try it all the
time. just study your business, man. Business isn't making concessions, it's
just humoring. Catch the grainf,
Graham nodded pleasantly and went in. The sane wisdom of the good-
natured fellow had struck home. I-le could not help having a sneaking feeling
that his secret had -bee11 guessed and that his friend had loaded his gun with the
right kind of shot and aimed at the vulnerable heel. At any rate, Graham made
up his mind that he would be a professional humorer if ever a certain blue-
eyed lady would give him a chance. The picture found on the beach had ceased
to trouble him. However, it brought back to his mind very vividly the night
of the ball. It was just after the accident, when he had sought the porch that
he might be alone to vent his exasperation, that SIIG had found him. He could see
her now in his mind,s eye, as she stood peering through the darkness, head up,
eyes bright. He could hear her say once more, "David, you evasive boy! I've

been looking for you everywhere. I'm tired and ran away. XVon't you sit out
this dance with me EW
Qnly Mabel could have done it that way, and now he had lost her, perhaps
forever, just because he had been unwilling to humor her ever so little.
l'Yes," he said to himself as his head touched the cool pillow that night,
"shes worth a little more humoring. No she's not, she's worth a life of humor-
ing and Tim an ass."
A few moments later there was a decided rap on his door.
"yVhat is it ?" Graham called sleepily.
"'Scusen me, Boss, but dars a leddy what ses her aunt mighty nigh dead any

"Not in the leastfi Graham called, this time more alert. "Tell the lady l'll
be there right awayf,
Hardly a minute had elapsed before Graham was bounding down the steps.
The girl of the parasol stood in the doorway, her white form silhouetted against
the darkness without.
"lt is the nearest cottage," he heard her say and followed.
He overtook her just as she reached the cottage door and, as the bright
light from within shown upon them, Graham gasped. The girl looked him
steadily in the eye and then, walking to the nearest door, opened it.
"My aunt is in there, Doctor," she said coolly.
For an hour the two worked with the old lady until finally she slept, and
they left her.
"Let us go outside a moment," said Graham. 'Tm hot, arn't you?"
The ocean had ceased its roaring and murmered softly on the shore. Myriads
of stars had come to replace the clouds of the morning. All was calm save
two hearts whose beating was almost audible. They stood side by side, this
man and girl, silent, motionless, each waiting, it seemed, for the other to speak.
"XVe intended a cruise on the Mediterranean, 'the girl said faintly, "but
my aunt's health did not seem robust. You think her not dangerously ill ?'
"No," said Graham thoughtfully. 'Her condition is not serious, but, Mabel,
believe me, mine is. I may not be crazy, but it would be a difficult task for one
to persuade me that l am sane. Can't you give a fellow a chance to prove that
he can be lucid under good conditions? Don't you think that even a 'perfectly
horrid' person ought to have a chance when he is penitent and wants one ?l'
"Yes,', she whispered, "if it were left to me Fd give him another. People
are not always as 'horrid' as they seem."
The ocean kissed the beach, the stars kissed the heavens, while Graham--
sat with Mabel on the cottage steps. .QUDORA YVOOLFOLK RAMSAY.

lxlyv. g ,A a feeling of awe crept over him, for, without reloading, the thing
could have stopped the beating of seven hearts as full of life
60,1 uf' as his own. The thought made him dizzy. His wan face was
almost touching the green lamp shade and seemed to be im-
movably fixed in mid air between his black clothes and the hovering shadows,
his large dark eyes glaring helplessly at the weapon motionless beside the book
bound in black morocco. Surely it had no life in it, and yet it seemed to want to
creep away from the book and transiix him with its seven lead orbs set deep
in their grim metal sockets. Behind him the mirror on the bureau reproduced
the still scene and reflected dimly the large head with its tangled mass of raven
hair. In the corner to the left, covers of a bed as white as snow invited him to
rest. The hour hand of the small clock on the mantel in front of him had covered
a quarter of its long journey around the dial, and the dragging minutes were
being measured off with faithful doggedness, but the regular tick-tock was un-
heard by the man who stood there in the dim light.
He tried to think how the pistol had got there, and swiftly the incidents
of the previous day and night passed through his mind. For a week his brief
snatches of sleep had been a hell of mental torture. He did not like even to
think of those dreams and the idea of speaking of them to any one filled him
with disgust and horror. Perhaps he ought to call a physician, but this malady
was so vague and hazy in its nature, that no matter how real it was to him,
he feared that it would be impossible to make even a skilled specialist under-
stand the case. Besides, he had ever had a secret pride in the strength of his
intellect, and dared not hint to his inmost self that his mind was now becoming
Before the last week he could not recall that he had ever had any dreams
at all except the vaguest kind and they had vanished almost as soon as they
had come. The first of these nightmares had disturbed him and made him uneasy
as to his state of health. They could not arise from an overloaded stomach, for
he had long since- adopted plain, simple diet which he thought was most nutritious,
and which built up his exhausted brain. He had been a singularly hard student
for the last year. As the days went by he studied more and took less recrea-
Two lluurlrual mul 7'1a:1,'lL'e
tion, and the nightmares increased and intensified. This last dream had reached
a climax, it seemed to him, and he imagined that death was preferable to
anything more horrible than what he had experienced the night before. He
used every means possible to keep its memory from his mind and could not.
The dream went with him on the street, and his mind dwelt upon it. New
details which he remembered as taking place at the time of the dream, but which
he had not before recalled, would suddenly crowd upon his racked brain. Thus
it grew in the light of day, and was threatening to absorb his entire attention.
The more he thought about it the more difficult it became to convince himself
that he had experienced a vision and not a series of actualities. It was hard to
establish a dividing line between the beginning of the vision, if vision it were,
and consciousness of material surroundings. The dream took place while he
was sitting in his chair, and he knew that he rarely slept in that position. He
remembered distinctly that for hours he had been poring over the pages of the
book in black morocco when that which had so upset all of his thinking pro-
cesses had transpired. His eyes had become so weary that he could hardly see
the print, but stubbornly he read on and on. For several months he had been
impressed as never before with the brevity of human life, the magnitude of
his own ignorance. and the infinite amount of knowledge that one might acquire.
His most cherished plan was to read and digest before he was twenty-one all
of the great English poets, and to master the Greek and Latin epics. His
preparation for such a task had not been bad, but there yet remained much
studying to be done. He was working almost incessantly, for his twenty-Hrst
birthday was not many weeks distant. His physical nature had its limits, and
finally his eyes had closed on the black book. He supposed that then he dropped
into a heavy, unnatural sleep. Certain he was that the book and the room
vanished and there seemed to be a light of infinite extent falling everywhere
with fierce brilliance. Far off to the west loud singing of huge unearthly beings
mingled with the awful peals of a gigantic organ which shook the world. This
lasted for a long while, and then suddenly the light fled away and the deafening
harmony ceased. He had actually felt tl1e heavy darkness that then, closed
around him, and he felt himself pressed slowly down into everlasting annihila-
tion. Next there flashed out in the darkness two ominous words in immense
Roman capitals. They remained for a moment, but the broad white streaks
did not relieve the surrounding night. Exactly what these words were he could
not remember, and his feverish mind tried in vain to recall them, but all that
day innumerable creatures seemed to whisper that the awful words meant his
doom and that the next night would be his last on earth.
He had suddenly awakened in a chill grey dawn. Day was peeping beneath
the window blinds. He had extinguished the light, and put the black book on

As he now stooped mutely above the table he painfully reviewed the dream
and tried to persuade himself that it was only a dream. He remembered how
for half the day he had fought against the sickening spell and had been forced
to seek some sort of protection, however weak, against that which cast a night-
mare over the future. He would provide himself with an efficient weapon.
He went into the city and selected the small pistol, and, when first he held the
thing in his hand, he was filled with a sense of shame for the unusual, childlike
weakness that impelled him. He recalled that when he was a boy his father
had said that it was unmanly to carry a weapon. He hesitated to buy the pistol
on account of a mere dream, and then quickly decided-aside from any possible
signihcance of the dream-that since so many men as innocent as himself had
been treacherously murdered. it evidently was not unwise to be prepared to
defend one's life. VVithout doubt there was some chance, be it ever so small,
for such a warning as his to be followed by fulfilment. The present case might
be one of those successful chances with which an ironic fate delights to play. Be
that as it may, he thought, as he mechanically asked the price of the weapon,
he would take no risks, and should anyone attack him that night, he would
shoot, and shoot to kill. He would not tell his mother anything about the
W'hen he had returned from the city his manner had been so restless that
he dreaded his mother's presence-he feared that she would be alarmed. He
kept himself in his study all the afternoon. At supper his eyes accidently met
his mother's and he saw plainly that she was much worried. She turned from
the table, as he was opening the dining-room door, and in a tone that made his
hand grip the door knob, called-
There was a catch in his breathing as he turned slowly and fixed his eyes
upon his H1Otl1C1',S face. The curl that fell on her forehead had a streak of silvev
in it, and the faint lines about her mouth told plainly of the borderland between
prime of life and old age. As he stood looking absently at her, the look of
anxiety in her eyes deepened. and he answered:
"VX"hat is it, 1T1OlCl'l61'?U
'fYou are not going to read to-night? You must not stay up too late,'7
"But I must," he answered in a stupid way, and then added after a pause,
"VVhy, yes, I am going to sleep-no-11o-yes-about-all nightf'
The woman arose from her chair. She wondered if her son were losing
his mind, so unusual was his behavior. The thought made her face grow pale,
and a sickening fear gripped her heart. Approaching the door, she stood by
him and tried to ask in matter-of-fact tones:
Two Ilu-urlrvfl and Ffllll'fl'FlL
"You mailed my letter this morning? You didnt? Wfell, that's alright,
it was not very important anyway. You didn't forget to get a package of
some kind, 1 noticed. Wlas it another book-what was it? Uh, I'n1 not trying
to pry into your affairs, my boy, but l guess it was a present-not for me though-
now was it?"
"But it's not for a girl, either, now, mother," he broke in with a forced
laugh that chilled the woman's very soul.
"I believe you," she said. "I hope you will rest well to-night. Aren't you
going to kiss me ?"
He turned back toward the woman, and. bending reverently, he kissed her.
He thought again of his boyhood and asked himself silently and earnestly if
this could possibly be his last night. Then he closed the door softly and was
entering his room opposite his mother's, when the dining-room door opened
behind him, and the woman stood there in a dazed manner. He forced a smile,
and she slowly closed the door again, and as it rattled softly, he thought he
heard a great sigh mingled with myriads of voices full of terror.
He knew not how long he had been gazing at the cold, hard steel and the
lovely pearl, when toward morning, he became once more thoroughly conscious
of his surroundings. Assuming an erect attitude, and shrugging his aching
shoulders, he cried-
"Sleep! sleep! l will no more of this nonsense. 'I must sleep!"
The idea occurred to him that ina-glmen often talked to themselves. Press-
ing his lips tightly together heltried to collect himself. The sound of his
voice brought back grim reality. il-Ie crossed to the washstand, bathed his burn-
ing brow, dried it, and sat down at the table. He would read just a little to
quiet his nerves, and then retire. He reached for the black book, and the
weapon rattled against the base of the lamp. He started violently, and then
opening the book at random. his eyes lighted on this passage:
"l',v11y my Znrd .vlmll comfort mv, my COIICTI
Ease my L'0lllf7flllillll.' H1011 sm1'1'.vI mc reitli dwnizzs

rlfy S0111 doflz ery aloud for r1l1'afl1."'
Wlith a loud curse he threw the book down on the Hoor, and strode around
the room waving his arms as it in agony, as he shouted:
"Every where! In all l read, in every conversation, on every occasion, it
is death, death l"
He paused and noticed that the oil was getting low in the lamp, and that
the light was slowly going out. A horror of being up and alone in the dark-
Tlro Ilrlnrlrrfl and Fifteen
ness seized him, and he longed to fly to the pure white covers of his bed, plunge
beneath them, and sink peacefully into a deep rest. VVhile he was hurriedly
undressing there came a knocking at the door. For an instant his mind was
paralyzed and he could not think, but in another instant his imagination flamed
up, telling his frenzied soul that the vision was about to be fulfiled. Oh, God!
Here was he actually awake with the demons at his door. Ah! now was the
time to shoot and, throwing his coat across the bed, he sprang toward the table
and seized the pistol. The idea dawned upon him that no matter how real the
demons were, surely a bullet could not kill them. But how could he face them?
There was another knocking. No! never could he look upon the Things in
the hall. He placed the small, gleaming barrel in the center of his forehead
and closed his eyes. On the mantel the clock stretched its black hands vertically
across its ghostly face, and ticked ceaselessly. The broad mirror reflected the
scene dimly, for the light was almost gone. From the hall came faint accents,
hardly above a whisper:
It was his own christian name.
Simultaneously he pressed the trigger. There was a dead, hollow sound-
the man sank slowly to the Hoor-and the thing of pearl and steel dropped
noiselessly into the heap of glowing, wine-colored rugs beneath the table. It -lay
there glittering and dashing beside the book in black niorocco. The light was
flickering feebly, as the door swung quickly open, and there appeared on the
threshold in the dull green gloom from the lamp-shade only the feathery white-
ness of a woman's nightgown. The blaze on the lampwick vanished and left
it a glaring red coal. From the floor near the table came a deep, muffled groan,
ending in a sigh as of infinite reliefg and in the doorway arose the sound of
a mothers sobbingl In a moment the sobbing ceased, and the room was
deathly still save for the merciless, unrelenting tick-tock of the unconscious time-
piece as it grimly measured off the dr1O'ffin0' hours.

Rushing forth in eestaey,
Sparkling through the mystic night,
Glowing with a mad delightg

Rising, soaring, ever creseht,

As 'twere from a thousand throats

Mournful, tender, ever leading

Sobbing with a rapturous pain,
As 'twere mourning all in vain
Some lost love, Now softly thrilling,
All the dreamy stillness filling
With the music of its songg
Gliding like Z1 stream alongg
Passionate with fire divine,
With celestial light ashine-

The Victories of Peace
PT T E RIGI-ITLY honor the warrior who, when called upon to face
if 1 some awful moment to which heaven had joined great issues,
Q f-altered 11ot m 'the tearful conliict but-cheerfully gave up his
life in freedoms cause. NVe praise him for the heritage of
E i X- Q peace which he gave through his valor. His name is written
L in' the 'hearts of his countrymen on memory's page which time's
QE withering touch cannot ettace.
But there has been progress by the way of peace, and time
has shown that "Peace hath her victories no less renowned than war." And
hath her heroes whose courage was equal to any danger, whose thoughts were
as pure as the springtime Elllfl deep as the ocean's bed, whose patriotism kindled
with everyqtiutter of the Hag and whose lives were given without regret for
sake of the right.
The hero of peaceful conquest brings a blessing purchased not with pain
and bloo-fl as does the warrior from a shell-swept plain: and yet his deeds are
seldom sung in song or storyg no trumpet sounds for him the swelling note of
XVe often speak of the causes of war as though they were inevitable and
fore-ordained by all the powers of good and bad: but the most prolific source
of these causes is the careless handling of questions breeding strife and the
unfriendly circumstances brought to bear ttpon the final decision. A crisis in the
affairs of nations seems to make war necessary to the proper adjustment of the
questions at issue, and because there is no one great enough to divert by wise
legislation the evil tendencies the cost of justice is multiplied by a million lives.
There are laws to regulate the lives of individuals, for should they settle
all disputes by an appeal to arms the strong would always triumph and the
weaker ones would be prey of those who rule by might: this would be wrong
and others would suffer loss from the eeaseless strife. XYhy. then, could not
disputes between the nations be adjusted by some power of arbitration, by full
consent and for the common good of all? Then armaments and hosts in steel
could not oppress the weak and struggling states which are too small to defend
their rights. All the worlds battles were not fought in freedoms cause. Am-
bition prompts some petty war-god to perpetuate possibilities for his own ad-
vancement as he wades through slaughter to a throneg or. some mighty nation,
drunk with power, tramples on the rights of weaker ones that it may wave its

tlag o'er wide domain. From this we see that victories of war may serve
ignoble ends, while victories of peace secure the blessings which shall never fail
and bring that sympathy of thought and feeling upon which depends the liberty
and prosperity ot the nations.
He is a noble statesman indeed who rises above the applause of the pas-
sionate crowd and directs the public mind to calm and righteous judgment. To
decide questions edecting the welfare of nations upon their merits, so that the
right may triumph is better contribution to humanity than is a rusting sword or
an illustrious name.
The principles through which peace obtains are being better understood, and
our histories now tell us more of the intellectual status and the industrial ac-
complishments of the countries of the world than ot the bloody battles lost and
won. The forces which make for peace are stronger to-day than ever before:
the extension of commerce and trade has joined in kindred interests men of
every nation, tribe, and tongueg the telegraph has brought into speaking distance
of each other all the towns and cities of the earthg the perfection of safe and
rapid travel has made us neighbors to the lands across the seasg and with a
fuller knowledge of their science, arts, literature, and sports, a fraternal feeling
is inspired which will at last produce one common brotherhood.
The home-coming of the conquerer with martial music bursting through
triumphal arch and stamping steeds to chariots stained with blood, and cowering
prisoners chained in long procession is but a shallow grandeur, purchased at the
price of broken hearts and blighted hopes. The knees that bow to do him
homage quake with fear, and lips that praise him only speak to quell his haughty
rage. But see your honest son of toil returning home at night, his clay's work
doneg with quickened step he nears the vine-clad cottage 'neath the trees and
sees his baby's face at the welcoming window and a new broom sweeping the
porch while a glad song bursts from joyous hearts to welcome the hero of peace.
Patriotism does not consist merely of empty sleeves and saber sears, nor should
we bran-:l as coward the man who would rather work to build a home than to
die in its defense.
Social reconstruction is a burning question in the public mind to-day. The
dangers of modern traffic and construction which have come in the course of our
industrial evolution hazards the life of every laborer. The capitalists whose
method of enterprise bring these dangers, should be held responsible for the loss
of life or limb of the laborers so that their families would be provided for.
Social unrest and strikes would cease if the relations of capital and labor were
so adjusted that a proper share of the enjoyment of wealth were given to those
whose labor produces it. '
VVe underestimate our working classes. They who think the poor will be
satisfied with the gross necessities of life and never crave the higher spiritual
7'u'u Iluurlrml and Ximztmm
necessities of mind and soul have never seen the rosebush planted by the cabin
door or the pictures hung on the dirty walls of city poverty. To reduce the
far-Hung bread line of our larger cities should be the chief concern of some
wise moral regiment, and to eradicate diseases which a little cost could easily
prevent and to make the lives of children working in our mills and shops a little
brighter should be the aim of all our scientistsg while, to give to every one 2111
equal chance in business, health and pleasure should be the goal toward which
our progress tends.
In contrast to the greed of those of our citizens who would appropriate
the coal and timber of our western coast, see the republic of Switzerland de-
claring all the mighty power of her dashing mountain streams and glistening
glaciers to be public property, and from them furnishing electricity for the
entire commonwealth. He loves his country who preserves- her national re-
sources for the good of future generations more than he whose useless pride
would have her navies rule the seas. He who lays siege to the trackless forest
and hews from its dangerous depths a home for civilization and the Church
of Christ, wins more merit than he who slays a Saracen to rescue the Holy
Grail. He who irrigates the desert sands and makes the wilderness to blossom
as the rose creates the world for which the conqueror wept. The physician, who
by his methods in surgery has vanquished pain, is victor OFCI' the harshest foe
to human life. The inventor whose device saves labor rests many tired hands,
feeds, clothes and cheers the sick and hungry millions of earth who spend
their lives in weary, unavailing toil. The educator who possesses his soul in
patience and trains aright the youth entrusted to his care, may be neglected for
a while, but shall see his work abide forever. The minister who preaches
earnestly the word of truth and as a faithful shepherd keeps his flock shall
not fail of the lasting gratitude of those whom he serves. The farmer whose
productive labor beautifies the fields and feeds all livino' creatures shall some
day be proclaimed the big brother of all mankind.
Not long ago an eminent scientist labored long and hard upon a problem
fraught with 'great concern for all. Wfith heroic endeavor he fought his way
from one fact to another, until at last victorious, he consigned time and space to
oblivion and sent the wireless message whose mysterious voice brings rescue
to the sinking ship. Aerial navigation is no longer a joke, but man's genius
has circumvented gravitationis sway, and the principles of science, wrested from
obscurity by valiant study and experiment, shall lift us on the wings of the wind
and safely carry us wherever we wish to go. A young man in a Georgia work-
shop, by a single invention instituted an industrial revolution which gives employ-
ment to millions of hands and makes cotton the chief staple of our Southern States.
A conscientious jurist, seeing the pernicious influence of old criminals upon the
young offenders both in court and prison, established a juvenile court, which when
Two Hundred and Tu-Cnty
we come to un-:lerstand it, will be recognized the greatest step in judiciary advance
of the nineteenth centnury. Judge Lindsayihas stood the trial by fire, but this
child of his great heart and brain will be forever a living monument to his
devotion to humanity.
O, that we might reform our penal system until it shall not be an instru-
ment of revenge for punishing the unfortunates ensnared by the evils of our social
system: but, upon the principle by which we hope for acquittal in the supreme
court above, we shall make it instead, an instrument of uplift and of kind cor-
rection for our fallen brothers. Let us unfurl the banner of hope done them, that
the good which is in the worst as well as the best may find expression in a reformed
life, thus shall they be saved to society and society saved from them.
Some years ago a womans tender compassion for the wounded and sick,
enlisted the sympathy of the good and great of every land and now the red
cross is a passport through every picket line of the world's battlefields, and when
the angel writes the names of those who loved their fellowmen shall not Clara
Barton's name lead all the rest? 'fPeace hath her victories"-our greatest sol-
diers may have won them but they are victories of peace none the less. Our
noble Cincinnatus of the Wlest in a letter to a friend after years of experience
had- ripened his wisdom, said, "I can hardly conceive of the circumstances which
would cause me to draw my sword again." And the fairest tribute ever paid to
his greatness, is the matchless phrase. "First in war, first in peace, first in the
hearts of his countrymen." Robert E. Lee in his farewell to his comrades at
Appomattox told them that it would require more courage to submit like men
to the terms of peace and go quietly home to rebuild their broken fortunes than
it had taken to win the brilliant victories of the past four years' campaigns. Thus
these tallest Chieftains of American history put themselves on record as advo-
cates of those principles which are turning our swords into plough-shares.
The brave heart that led the charge up San Juan hill through Spanish bullets
thick as hail and with his daring set a suffering nation free, has also served his
own fair land through years of peril from graft and greed, and in his burning
zeal for peace brought to an end the deadly struggle of the nations in the Far
East. For this service he was awarded the Noble prize of forty thousand dollars
with which he founded an institute for the promotion of peace.
The gallant youth who, true to duty's call shut up the Spanish fleet in
Santiago harbor, now, in his devotion to the same commanding call, has enlisted
against a greater foe to love and peace than Spanish fleets could ever be, and
with his heart and mind and soul, will try to sink the liquor traffic deeper than
the Merrimac. It is the most powerful giant which has ever defied the armies of
righteousness. Contemplation of this vast traffic recalls to my mind a tall pine
tree which stood on the summit of a mountain peak above my early home. High
above the other trees it proudly raised its head to catch the first glimpse of the
Two Iizmdrezl and Tll76'1Ift1l-0116
rising sun, and its top was bathed in golden splendor after evening shadows
had lengthened across the surrounding hills. From its topmost bow the eagle
screamed a challenge to the huntsman's rifle or the hoot owl walied the echoes
from the cliffs around. l-low insignificant I felt as first I stood and gazed up
into the tieclced shadows of its evergreen branchesg I was so small, my life so
short, the great tree was teaching me the weakness of human strength. But one
morning my father ground his axe and set to work, while I, at a safe distance,
held my breath in terror as the unsteady wabble of the great tree yielded to
man's dominion over all things and with a deafening crash Hung its great length
upon the earth below. lt had fallen as kingdoms and powers have fallen before,
and as this great evil must fall before the resistless advance of temperance forces.
Hand in han-il the victors of war and the victors of peace, preserving un-
sullied the principles upon which our nation was founded, are advancing toward
that day when "man's inhumanity to man"' shall cease, and constructive labor and
progressive legislation shall beautify the earth and insure tranquillity to its in-
Nothing is so sacred as human life. There is no flower half so beautiful

the young man's wandering attention.

chap you have been father and mother both to me, and the only real friend I've
had in all that time. I wish I knew how to thank youf'
The old woman nodded l1er head smilingly.
"Sit down here on this bench with me, mammy, and tell me what you have
been doing down at the old homeplace since I left."
They sat on in silence for a while, he busy with his thoughts of the past,
the old woman satisfied with looking' at her child and wondering if this hand-
some young man could be the sanie little fellow she had so often rocked to sleep
in her arms. -
"Tell me of my mother," he now asked softly. as one treading upon hallowed
I-Ier voice hushed to a low crooning note: Mammy Rose brought strength
and hope back to the young man's heart as she softly told him of the beautiful
purity and steadfast courage of his young mother's life.
Lingeringly he turned his face towards her. It no longer wore the harrassed
look. Still sad, yet the eyes brimming over with tender recollections held in them
a renewed faith, and fresh determination.
"W'hy Mfammyf' he cried, Hyou give me fresh courage to try again! I have
worked doggedly on, gritting my teeth and saying, 'I will not give upf until
this morning when I could see nothing but defeat before me. My rent over-

them as I owe for this year's tuition. Not a dollar to my name, and my four
yelars' work for nothing. Ilut now I win!" His voice rose triumphantly. "I
win! I'll go to the Dean of the college and explain. I'll make him give me
a chance. He knew my father before me and I've a right to demand it of him.
And, Mammy, its you, its you to whom I'll owe my success !"
The old woman shook her head. "No, honey, you don' owe it to me: you
owes it to yore own self, and to de sperrit of yore angel mother which I sees

farely worshipped de groun' she tred on, and when she died"-but here the old
woman's trembling voice choked.
'fMammy, promise me you'll stay here with me until I graduate. It will
be in about three weeks, and I will need you, mammyf'
'iSuttinly I'll stay wid you, honey. I promise Miss Sallie dat I'd be faith-

"Honey,i' she added coaxingly, as she slipped into his hand a shabby little
pocket-book, "you'll take dis fro1n your ole mammy who loves you.',
The young man's eyes again filled with tears and he was about to refuse
when the old woman said softly:
"Yore mudder would want you to take hit from mammy stid of dat deaner-
man, case what longs to Rose longs to you, and I don' need hit."
'iGod bless you, mammy, I can't," said the boy chokingly, but as long as
you live your support will be one of my chief objects in life. My mother thanks
your for your goodness to me. She knows how faithful you have been. That
you have staid by her boy until the endf,
"Go long, now honey, and see dat man. I's coming dis bery ebening an'

The young man sprang up and looked about him.
"lVhy look at the beautiful tulips, mammy! They make me think of the
garden at our old home-and of the lilies-they must be in full bloom down
there by now." A
For the first time he noticed the budding lilies, the greening grass, and
the delicious smell of spring in the air. '
As he strode off down the sunshine-tlecked path he held his shoulders
bravely, and his head high, while in his face shone the strength of a young David.

To-day has not been satisfactory. I flunked on all my classes. The Math.
professor sent me to the board, but the great dynamo of memory began to send
its surcharged currents through my blood, and those unromantic blackboards
glowed so eloquently with eyes, laughing, dancing and singing silent little melo-
dies that I could not mar my vision by inscribing on the foreground a simultaneous
Quadratic. No the supreme end of my coming to college has not been for-
warded much to-day. Yet I felt bully. Thats strange, too, for I have not
done anything, in fact, have wasted my time. Ah! could we know at what
point along the orbit of a human soul lies happiness! Perhaps "feeling bully"
is our nearest approach to the barred doors of Elysium.

could ever find utterance delicate or tender enough to express. By George! I
have it! I'll ask her to come with me to the next reception. Yes, I'l1 pull off that
little stunt, and perchance that night shall prove the first scene in the re-enactment
of that old drama which is ever sweet, and whose repeated performance keeps
the heart young when the gray has settled on the temples.
It seems to me that I remember, way back in some pre-historic age, ante-
dating the birth of the soul, before eolution got in its deadily work, when she
was a butterfly and I a bumblebee, Hitting past one day her eyes caught mine
and with that smile, bound my heart. Through all the succeeding stages me-
thinks she has held it fast, and faster to-day than ever. And if this life be
not the climax of the series, when we have crossed the Divide, and rest on the
violet banks of Eternity, as long as those everlasting violets bloom, there shall
blend with the melody of the golden harp, the clanking of love's chains, binding
my heart, prisoner to her eyes forever.

me to the reception and she coolly replied, HI do not care to go with you." And
suddenly the light of her eyes which had been as soft to me as the mellow rays
of heaven's sun, seemed to contain all the raging Flame of an Inferno. My pencil
can't describe my feelings, so I shall not try. To-morrow from my lonely St.

The folowing are a few clippings taken from the daily newspapers:
The German Club opened its season with a very attractive dance on the
evening of November the third, at the Country Club. All details were carried
out in proper form and the members of the Club showed to their guest that
the same pleasing hospitality remains in the Club that has been promient since
the beginning of its history. A delightful club supper was served during the
intermssion as well as punch throughout the evening.
It added greatly to the pleasure of all to have so many of the Alumni
members present, whom we are always glad to have with us. The chaperones
were Prof. and Mrs. E. C. Bingham and Mr. and Mrs. il. Ballon, Jr.
The NVinter Hop was given on january the 18th at the Country Club.
Although it was rather informal, every one enjoyed a pleasing evening, showing
that sociality not formality was predominant amongst the guest. Those dancing
were: Miss Xhfard, Miss Cardoza. Miss Dudley, of New York: Miss Martin,
Miss Thaw, Miss Wladdey, Miss Roslie Harwood, Miss Allen, of Norfolk,
Miss Billisolly also of Norfolk, Miss Louise Richardson, Miss Chalmers,
Miss Ethel Baudor, Miss Margaret Chewning, Miss Vaden, Miss Lee, Miss
Noble, Miss Linthieun, Miss Brugh, Miss Gillman, Miss Masseyg and Messrs.
Powell, Stringfellow, Louthan, jenkins, Arnold, Smith, Herndon, Brock, Lefexv,
Sinton, Ready, Bagley, Taylor, Frost, Shepherd, Meak, Robt. Gwathney, B.
VV. Gwathney, Sydnor, H. B. Gilliam, Kershaw, Garland, Gilliam, of Peters-
burg, Bristow and Meredith. The chaperones were Prof. and Mrs. E. C. Bing-
ham and Mr. and Mrs. QI. ji. Ballon, jr.
The Easter German was given on Thursday evening the 31st at the Country
Club. The evening was perfect, for not only was the air of springtime as
balmy as if it had been wafted from a mountain lake, but the moon with all her
hrilliancy smiled through the porticos of the porches and across the green fields.
During the intermissions many couples could be seen strolling over the rustic
bridges and footpaths around the Club. At midnight an old Virginia supper
was served, after which the dancers continued to enjoy the pleasure until the
small hours of the morning. It was the nineteenth intermission when the sons
of old Virginia gathered around the punch bowl and in the same manner as
their forefathers had done, drank toasts to the ladies. Soon the hall was filled
with notes of "Home Sweet Home" and each couple glided around the floor
regretting that it was the last dance of the evening and looking forward with
greater expectations for the finals. '
Two Ilmzdreal and Forty
OR many years hi the history of the College it has been the
F2345 custom of the lraculty to hold a welcoming reception early
in the session to the student body and patrons of the Col-
-lx Q 1m lege. The purpose of these receptions is to bring the Fresh-
Qpx- A man into personal touch with the Faculty and upper class-
l l men. To the old man it means the renewal of old friend-
' I ships and the making of new: to the new man it is the Elling
of the gap made by the home leaving.
Ou the evening of November the fifth, President and Mrs. F. XV. Boat-
wright tendered the first of the Faculty receptions. This reception, as in the
case of all others, was held in the College library. XVe are hoping to have a
spacious reception hall in our new College adapted to such purposes, and we
trust no longer to desecrate the honored abode of our great "Silent Teacher"
with the sounds of merriment and the rattle of dishes.
Again on the evening of january I4 Professor and Mrs. C. Met-
calf distinguished themselves as hosts. Although strictly informal, the af-
fair was greatly enjoyed by all who attended.
Contrary to the usual custom of giving a banquet on every fourth of
March, it was decided this year to hold a reception to the students and
friends of the College. This event is given that we may keep ever before us
the founding of Alma Mater. O11 this occasion illustrious Alumi were pres-
ent in large numbers. and the Sophomore. who usually has the distorted
opinion that kings of earth should bow the knee to him, was made to feel
very diminutive, in that so many distinguished men once occupied the same
places as we are filling to-day.
Besides these receptions held under the auspices of the College, there
were several receptions held by the literary societies. On November 28th,
December 3rd and February 4th, public orations, debates and other forensic
activities were held, to which the public was invited.
In conclusion, let us say that we most heartily appreciate the advances
of the Faculty, and feel sure that we can guarantee them the congratula-
tions and sincere thanks of the student body for their earnest efforts to
promote the social side of student life. There is much yet to be accom-
plished, but it is as much "up to" the stud-ents themselves as the Faculty.

and college life has come to mean a taste of the outside
world, an elbow contact with the men that are making
our history. Richmond College is vastly indebted to the
Thomas Foundation for two highly attractive series of lec-
tures this session. The lecturers were James Howard Gore,
Ph. D., of the Historical Geographic Society of Wlashing-
ton, D. C., and the distinguished German historian, Edward
Meyer, lilh. D., LL. D., of the University of Berlin.
Dr. Gore chose as his theme 'KHolland," treating on December the sixth
"The United Netherlands," on December the seventh "Holland's X-Var Wfith
the Sea," and on December the ninth "In the XVake of the Pilgrims."
Dr. Meyers subjects were peculiarly fitting, and we felt after the even-
ing of March the twenty-eighth that we had gotten a new insight into f'The
State." The following night, in a scholarly way, Dr. Meyer discussed "The
Growth of the German Empire," placing a new and far-reaching interpreta-
tion on the facts of our general knowledge concerning that great nation.
On November the twenty-second and twenty-third, a Richmond College
audience was especially fortunate in having Dr. Ray deliver two illustrated
lectures on japan and Africa. Both the charm of his personality and the
slides thrown upon the screen, make these two days linger in the memory
as two of the sessions f'Red Letter Days."
Our College has not lost its patriotism, has not learned to let the birth-
day of the first of all Virginians pass by unnoticed. So at noon, on the
twenty-second of February, classes were suspended and students, Faculty and
outside friends were invited to hear ex-Governor A. J. Montague on the sub-
ject of "International Law." Mr. Montague, after sketching its history and
recent advances, told us of "The Hague Tribunal" and what it is accom-
plishing. ' i
llut Richmond College is not entirely dependent upon the outside world
for its lectures. The lfaculty, feeling that it had a little extra supply of
good things on hand. decided to hand it out in weekly installments. After
April the fifth we decided that mathematics is not as dry as some of us
had come to believe. On this evening Dr. R. E. Gaines gave us an expla-
nation of "Graphical Representation," showing original charts of great in-
terest to even the lay mind.

ORGANIZED Glee Club has been hoped for and eagerly
anticipated at Richmond College for several years, and this
desire took definite form the latter part of january of this
year. A number of students interested, canvassed the situa-
tion, and with the hearty co-operation of Dr. Boatvvright. the
movement took definite shape, and an organization effected.
Wie were most fortunate in securing the services of Mr. NVal-
ter C. Mercer, an alumnus of the College, as director, and a
for candidates. More than thirty iesponded, and work be-
The outlook was not particularly encouraging at first, nor was the work
easy, for only a few of the men had a reading knowledge of music: but
through perseverance and sheer determination, chaos gave way to order,
and harmony, remarkable to say, came out of discord, and by April 15th the
Club had progressed to the extent that they were able to participate in the
program given by the john Marshall High School Glee Club on that date,
in which they so kindly invited us to take part. The following men repre-
sented the Club: llarbe, Miller, Tucker, Lee, XVliite, Ellis, Dietz, Greer,
Caldwell, Ackiss. Snead, Redd, Lynch, Fleet, Coleman, and Stillwell, who, in
making their iirst bow to the public, received a liattering reception from an
A concert will be given at the College on May Iith, and then the Club
will give a concert at the Lynnhaven lllotel, Norfolk, Va., on May 12th,
which will be followed by a banquet given by the Richmond College
Alumni Association of Norfolk. lfrom the success the Club has alreadyinet
with, we may hope that these ventures will come out as well.
Too much credit cannot be given to Dr. lioatwright, Nr. S. T. Dickin-
son, jr., of Norfolk, Mr. XValter C. Mercer, and Nr. L. lf. NVatson, our pian-
ist, whose untiring efforts and sympathy have made the Club possible, and
the kindly criticism and reception accorded the Club so far, sustain the be-
lief that this will be a permanent organization which will reliect much credit
upon Richmond College. This is its first year. XX-'atch it grow.

noble desire of the dratnatist from Euripides to lbsen. The
long line of men who have adorned the drama with the touch

of their genius is an insipration to the actor. 'lhe names of
Sophocles. Terence, Moliere, Hugo, Goethe. Schiller, Marlowe, Shakespeare,
Shaw, Suderman, hlaeterleuck, Fitch, Hauptman and Pinero are an everlast-
ing tribute to human aspiration.
It was in recognition of these master minds, and because of a pure de-
sire to create a more intelligent love for the drama that the Dramatic Club
was organized at Richmond College just before Christmas of IQOQ.
It naturally affiliated itself with the English department, and under the
enthusiastic guidance of Dr. I. C. Metcalf, the Club decided to present a
Shakespeare play. The difficulties of limited membership, very little com-
petition, and no prospect of funds, made themselves apparent from the first.
But the Club struggled on, and the faithful few stood by their posts. The
precious hours spent in the practice and interpretation of the play were not
regarded as wasted, but rather looked upon as a large and potent factor in
our education. To the untiring devotion of Dr. Metcalf we owe a great
XVhen the play was well-nigh memorized and we had gone through
several rehearsals, Mrs. Chandler, wife of the former Professor of History at
Richmond College, Dr. I. A. C. Chandler. kindly consented to train the cast
in the finishing touches, and by her help a creditable performance is ex-
Wfe are not professionals, but we love the drama. If college students
would take a more active interest in the drama and the dramatic art, a
higher standard of public taste would be created. lt is to this end that we
wish to contribute our little mite, encouraged by the experience that out of
the smaller things. out of the hidden and insignificant processes grow the
creative forces of the world. H. XV. XV.

OLLEGE life in general has a tendency to chill the spiritual
condition of the students. There is much in Richmond Col-
l NVQ lege, however, to help us in our religious life. The chapel
exercises are interesting and helpful, and the regular Bible
'Beg faq classes taught by llrofessors VVhitsett, Harris, and Gaines are
Qi? ,Q splendid courses of study. But we find the Y. M. C. A. a
0 great help in the development of Christian character 'in the
student body. This is the only religious organization 1U Col-
lege, and aims to ill the same place in the religious life of the College that
the Athletic Association does in the athletic life. Wie contribute 525.00 a year
to the State work, and feel proud of our Association.
XVe have the use of the chapel without charge for our Thursday even-
ing meetings, which are conducted generally by some pastor of the city or
member of the Faculty. These services have been well attended and very
helpful this year.
The work at the Soldiers' Home, Almshouse, Home for Incurables, and
the State Penitentiary, has proven a blessing both to those who minister
and those ministered unto.
Messrs. Lynch and Barbe and Professor Loving represented the Associa-
tion at the Students' Volunteer Convention at Rochester, and Messrs. Lynch
and Yeaman at the State Convention at Danville. VVe hope to be well rep-
resented at the Asheville Conference this summer.
Three mission study classes were conducted this year. They were well
attended and instructive. The Volunteer band has nine members and con-
duct their own study. '
Membership in the Y. M. C. A. is Sroo per year, and we heartily wish
cv-ery student would join us in this good work. W

The Richmond College Band of the Student Volunteer Movement has
this year an enrolment of eleven. XVe regret that three of those with us last
year are not with us this year, but with these absent. the membership shows
a gain of one over that of last year.
The Band has followed its usual method of work. having' for its deli-
nite course "Religions of Mission Fields."
XVI: feel that the spirit for missions which exists in our Band and of the
influence which is exerted upon the student body, is not that of outward, ex-
pressive enthusiasm. but of a eztlm, an impressive and lasting result. The
past history of our ,lland has been entirely eneourziging' and Z1 source of mueh
real joy to its members. There is every indication that the future may be as
inspiring' as the past. and their hopes and determinzition as great for the
evangelization of the world in this generation.

"Sixteen," I cried: "Ah yes!" she sighed,
And coyly tucked her head.
"Eight years upon the mountain tom

And eight in yonder college hall
Are sixteen, sir, you see?"
"I pray thee, pretty miss," I cried-

"Ah, sirl' Ca wailj, her face grew pale,

"Eight years upon the mountain top
And eight lmeside the sea,
And eight in yonder college hall

Once Upon A' Midnight
XVITFI Avotocznas T0 Pon.
Once upon a mid-night dreary. as 1 pondered weak and weary,
Over quaint and curious prohlenis of Math A which proved a bore,
NVhile I nodded nearly napping. suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, just outside my eliainhetvdoor-
'Tis some gust of wind," I muttered. "rattling at my eh:unher-door-
Only this and nothing more.
Ah! distinctly I remember, it was in the hot September.
And each separate math prohlem wrought its ghost upon the floor,
Eagerly I wished to horrou' from somehody on the morrow
Answers to those tedious prohlems over which I'd almost snorc-
Answers to those eussed prohleins lying scattered on the Floor-
Unless hence for ever more.
And the silken sad uncertain rustling of the oilcloth curtain
Thrilled me-filled me with fantastic terrors never felt hefore,
So that now. amid the beating of my heart, I stood repeating,
"Tis some hnrglar, het a dollar, trying to get inside that doorg
For who else would he a trotting 'round up here on the third Hoor-
'Speeially around my door."
Back unto old Math A turning my eyes were red and hurning,
Soon again I heard a tapping, vastly louder than before.
Surely," said I, "surely that is some one on the outside there,
Let me see then, what the dielcens, and this mystery explore,
Wfho 'tis hanging on the door."
Presently my soul grew stronger: hesitatingly then no longer,
Sir," said I, "Your pardon, truly your 'forgiveness I implore,
But the fact is I was napping and so strangely you came rapping,
And so suddenly came tapping, tapping at my ehamher-door,
That I wondered what the mischief made that fuss out there hefore."-
Then I started toward the door.
Open up, rat!" I heard them mutter, and with many a thump and hlusterg
On there poured a crowd of hazers ot? the Hrst and second Hoor,
Not the least oheisanee made they: not a minute stopped or stayed theyg
But with little ceremony, took me out my ehanilJer-door-
Perehed me on a narrow hed-slat from the hed heside the door-
Toolc me down the corridor.
Two Himclrezl and Eigltty-five
Then this motley crowd beguiling my sad lips to speechifying.
With a generous application of some sticks and belts they wore,
"Tune up, rat, and spill some music, lively now and don't refuse it,
Or, by ginger, we will have about a gallon of your gore,"
And with such an adjuration, loud my melody did soar,
Louder far than e'er before.
Startled by the echoes harlcing, all the dogs began their barking,
"Doubtless," thought I, "this will bring policement up here by the score."
"Say, you guys, lets buck him faster," and those belts and laths for plaster,
Followed fast and followed faster, sounding in one hollow roar-
Fast my gray-checked trousers were,
"All right, ratg go home a Hying!" and I lost no time in trying,
But with many sprightly footsteps soon regained my chamber-door,
And I spent the night in slumbering and the morning found me numlfring
All the various shades of bruises which had made me stiff and sore-
Pondering on my freshman school-days, as I rubbed on Arnica-
May it happen never more.

RICH D COLLEGE
Charts recently prepared at Richmond College show that the
institution has been making a steady growth for many years, and
that recently the increase in endowment, faculty and attendance
has been rapid. During the past Fifteen years the number of
courses of instruction and the number of professors and instruc-
tors has increased loo per cent. The attendance in regular col-
lege courses has increased S2 per cent., and, including the Rich-
mond Acadeniy, the sub-freshman department of Richmond Col-
lege, the attendance has increased 179 per cent. W'ithin the same
time the endoxvment has increased over 100 per cent.
Richmond College is now a member of the Southern Asso-
ciation of Colleges and Preparatory Schools, and has standard
college entrance requirements. The increase in attendance of stu-
dents for the present session is 13 per cent on the highest previous
The high standard in instruction and equipment at Richmond
College are well known. Richmond College degrees are every-
where accepted at their face value. Meantime facilities for in-
struction are constantly improved. and equipment is added as
rapidly as the income permits. The library and the laboratories
are lc-ept up to date, and the advantages of a modern college are
offered to all students. ,
NVomen were admitted to Richmond College in 1898, and the
increase in attendance has steadily grown from four women stu-
dents the lirst session to thirty in 1909-Io. Provision will be
made for fifty women students in 1910-1 1, and it is expected that
the 11ew college for women, which will be a component part of
Richmond College, will be opened in 1912.
The law department of Richmond College has an able faculty
of four professors, trained in our own College and in the Uni-
versities of Harvard, Yale and lilerlin. A thorough course of
study covering two years and leading to the degree of LiL. B. is
offered in the Law School. Correspondence concerning the Law
School may be addressed to VV. S. McNeill, LL. B., Ph. D., Mu-
tual Building, Richmond, Va.
The next session of the College opens September 22, 1910.
