The Little Jpan 0' Prairie
HEPES a Little Span O' Prairie where the twisting river ranges
Q And the blue Nebraska uplands block the view,
Where the southward winging wild duck sounds the note of Autumn's changes
And the far off night-heard wolf howl links the old time with the new.
Tis a spot grass-grown and sunny, that Little Span O' Prairie Q
The crowding corn-fields seek it, the nodding corn-stalks gaze.
And they wonder and they murmur as they peer, uncertain. wary--
"What is this that comes among us disregarding primal ways P"
Tis a hive of busy workers, that Little Span O' Prairie-
"Can you tell me what they're doing," the nodding corn-stalks say.
With their hurry hither, thither, with their purposes contrary.
And their perfectly extraordinary academic way? "
What's the meaning of their jargon in their language esoteric?
ls 'historic' metaphoric for a little game of bluff?
ls there very much in Dutch, and isn't French a bit hysteric?
And without their Greek and Latin aren't there surely woes enough P
So the nodding corn-stalks question round the Little Span O' Prairie 3
And their wonder waxes frantic when they see the golf-class "grind"
Will you read their riddle for them, tricksy elf or nimble fairy?
For the Little Span O' Prairie is not very hard to find.

Organized in january, 1903. The Washington Club gave its first banquet on
the evening of the Zlst of the following month. February 22, 1904, the second
banquet occurred. Further than this there is little to tell of the history of the
Washington Club. However, it may be noted that the Washingtonians never tail
in any of their undertakings, and what they may do in the future will be determined
by their ability to accomplish the following purposes:
i'To give a banquet each year in commemoration of the birth of Washingtong
to aid and encourage all worthy college enterprises, and to do all in our power to
further loyalty to the University and its interests."

efwl-lE football season of 1903, while far from being as successful in
4. 'ff point of games won as the preceding season, was at least pro-
gressive, and marks a new period in the University athletics. While
hitherto our men have met Nebraska or Ames on local or neutral
ground, last fall the team journeyed to both Lincoln and Ames, and
although defeated, played a plucky, determined game against these
two leaders in middle-west football. The eleven made a North
Dakota trip, playing the University and the Agricultural School of our sister State.
The first game was presented on a gold platter to our opponents by the officials.
The second was lost in ahard battle, with our men tired and bruised from the struggle
two days before. Yankton and the Agricultural men at Brookings deemed it fit
and proper to cancel the games arranged to be played in Vermillion. After the
North Dakota trip the eleven, although disappointed by the cancellation of games
arranged with the State college teams, worked hard and rounded into superb form.
There is little question in the writer's mind but that the offensive form exhibited
by Captain I-lanson's men in the Morningside game, played on Thanksgiving at
Sioux City, was by far the most powerful ever played by South Dakota football
men. The twice-victors over Yankton were overwhelmed 23 to O in a short game,
and regulation halves would have witnessed an even larger score.
The team was heavily handicapped from the start of the season until
November lst. At first by a lack of backs, and minor injuries to available meng
Coach Whittemore's two weeks' sickness retarded development of team work, and
the numerous trips and lack of home games were far from advantageous to the
playing form and condition of the men.

S with thel baseball team the elements played havoc with the
development of men, the playing of scheduled games and the
finances. The meet with Yankton arranged for the last of April
was cancelled inasmuch as our track was still a mire. The first
meet of the year was with the State Agricultural College at
Brookings. The farmers won the meet 66 to 46, but only after
a hard struggle that plainly proved had our men enjoyed equal
facilities for training and the advantages of a gymnasium the result
might have been different. The Brookings men carried off a large
majority of the points in the runs, while our team won a majority
of the points in field events. The meet arranged with the Uni-
versity of Nebraska to be contested at Sioux City yielded to the
floods. ln early june the men met the athletes of Morningside at
Sioux City and administered a decisive defeat to the Methodists. Our athletes
were in perfect form and smashed several records. The score was 60 to 35. The
bicycle events being omitted. During the Spring several University records were
broken. Glen Myers carried away double honors by clipping both hurdle records
which now stand 16 3-5 for the high and 26 2-5 for the low sticks. l-lanson broke
his own record in the hammer throw, and then Thompson in the Morningside meet
hurled the hammer I 19 feet, which now stands as the record. On the same day
Reimer made a new mark, 10 minutes and 29 seconds for the 2-mile run. Young
broke the State record for the high jump, clearing the bar at 5 feet 9 inches.
Lehne raised the pole vault mark one inch, to 10 feet 6 inches.
Credit must be given to Captain l-lanson for his able management of the team.

HE long, cold Spring, and the excessive rainfall handicapped the
J 'Varsity Baseball team of 1903 materially both in rounding into
by 'B condition and in playing the excellent schedule prepared by Manager
Thompson. A series of five games was played with Yankton, and
. J f after our opponents had obtained a lead in games of two to one,
'i " 5f"" the wearers of vermillion pulled themselves together and won the
series after as exciting and dramatic a finish as was ever seen in a decisive game.
In the Morningside series, no third game was necessary as the Methodists were
hardly in the same class with Captain Overhulse's men.
ln the last of May the team started on a three game trip into Nebraska.
The rains descended, and floods and winds insisted that the games with Creighton
and Nebraska Wesleyan be cancelled. The one game played was with the University
of Nebraska at Lincoln. The "Corn Huskers" were too much for our men, although
Dakota put up a game fight and Fuller pitched a very clever game. A game
arranged with Bellevue College to be played at Vermillion was an impossibility
owing to wet grounds. At the end of the season Sheldon of the law school was
elected captain for the coming season.

A Junior in 1894 to the Juniors in 1904
Q l ND so you have brought out an Annual. I thought you would.
f And you are just about ready to become Seniors-and after that
EA if Alumni and Alumnm. It is time for horoscope and for retrospect.
X Wherever you go you will have the distinction of appearing as
' graduates of a State University-an institution, that is, which has
rl the sanction and support of a component part in the great country
k af which is the hope of the world to-day. A college named for some
' 9 -- individual or place, unless it possess exceptional years or renown,
R needs to have its function and standing explained to every new
individual you meet. A state requires no definition, everybody
respects the intellectual corporation upon which it has set its seal
of approval. You will also be known as the graduates of a State
Ufziwnizy, and this guarantees your recognizing the truth that " man shall not live
by bread alone 3" that you prefer to be human beings first, and cogs in the wheel
afterwards, that you have acquired not only the power of intelligent toil, but the
power of intelligent recreation, that you will not die of ennui if you are exiled or
invalided, or retire on a fortune, that you need not spend half of eternity in adapting
yourselves to the changed. conditions of the world to come.
Vermillion rather grows upon one, doesn't it? Who said it was hard to
reach? Did you ever neglect, a few years ago, to secure a coveted pie because it
was on the top shelf? Did Champion Skedaddle give up the mile run last year
because he found he should have to go several times around the track to win?
The best liberal education in the State is here, and you know it. How about other
surroundings? Do you dislike the skating, or the sleighing, or the concerts, or the
receptions, or the debates, or tennis, golf, football and baseball, or the churches, or
the absence of drunks full of insult and initiative, or the commencement exercises?
Again, I have as yet heard few find fault with that stream of liquid gold overhung
by trees of sunset, which is called Fall, or with that stadium of spirits whiter than
whitest marble and permeated by immortal breezes all but too pure and austere for
human nostrils-the Winter-or with that long, rapturous, suffusing glow-the
Spring-mantling nature from head to foot in a choking blush of green, while the
mammoth heart of the cosmos expands as if animated by some generous world-
thoughtg or with june, a season of transfigured days and pellucid nightsg of im-
petuous suns, protruding moons, and stars like pin-prioks in the shell of a robin's
egg, or fireflies drowning in a jar of distilled blue hyacinths. But these are uni-
versal, do you say? Perhaps. They have not seemed to me quite the same else-
where. At any rate they add a charm to this little academic settlement surmount-
ing the steep, always in view of a land of promise on the one side, always looking
down on a happy valley on the other. The very situation is a protest against
It is not so long since I sat at a study table in a college room and stared out at
the wet, lithe twigs whipped by the wind against the trickling roofs, and chafed at
the idea of another year in college before I could mingle with the currents of
the world. I seemed perilously near unable to justify my existence to myself.
Possibly some of you are afflicted with a similar maggot in the brain. To be
sure, it is very satisfactory to find your place in the world's machinery-to know
exactly where you stand and with what conditions you are going to have to deal
during your temporary sojourn on this planet. But let me assure all the impatient
brethren that four years of target practice are none too much for forty years of hard
shootingg that it is extremely desirable to put on thick clothing before you
encounter a blast at fifty belowq and that it is not commonly deemed the part of
prudence to jump into mid-ocean without a life preserver. All knowledge is profit-
able: you cannot imagine at what turns odd bits of information will prove valuable.
Then there are the oft-cited friendships, endowed with striking strength through the
fact that young people at the same age have undergone similar experiences at the
same time-finspiring experiences that enlarge one's whole sentient calibre, and
frivolous experiences, the remembrance of which tends to relax the severity of
mind subsequently begotten by secular routine.
In addition also to all the indoor work you are doing in the way of acts of
apperception, you are learning how to behave in human society. The intercourse
with the throng outside of the class room, whether in society or in business, is one
of the most helpful features of life you have encountered here. You have on the
one hand shaken off some awkward manifestations of shynessg and on the other
you have ceased to worship in the temple of cacophonous horse-play. And that
brings me back to the Annual. I-lere, in this book, largely the product of your
own brains and your own fingers, and your own energy in correspondence and inter-
view, you have created a trustworthy contemporary record of how college life
appeared to you at the time you were juniors, what you saw to admire, what to
think about, what to talk about, what to joke about. To overcome the very
material obstacles to such an elaborate publication in a new State requires a very
considerable amount of co-operation so important in business, religion and politics,
and a very sharp contest and contact with realitiesg consequently you have already
disproven the thesis of the plangent Triggs that college students never come within
sight of Real Things. You have both felt the Real and seen the What-Ought-To-Be-
Real, or Ideal. I believe you will some day concern yourselves to see that some
of the repairs so frequently needed in the former are made out of the indestructible
substance of the latter. Meanwhile you have left a monument to show that you
already count for somewhat in the world of mortal men, as well as an embalmed
impression directly out of Youth-Youth, the folly that is better than wisdom,
Youth, the dream that is better than wakingg Youth, the Lost Chord that cannot
be struck twice.
HERBERT B. FOSTER.
T was in june in eighteen hundred and eighty-eight that Alma Mater was
able for the first time to say to some of her children, "You have received
all I have to offer, and now it is best for you to pass on into the larger life
that lies outside these walls." Every June since then she has delivered
6 this same message, sometimes to a large company and again to one
5 l ag composed of but four or five members. In all, one hundred and eighty-
' four have received her blessing and gone forth to represent to the World her
ideals. Naturally the question arises, 'iWhat are the one hundred and
eighty-four doing in the world and what success have they attained so far?" Let
statistics gained from Alumni records give the answer. Remembering that the
first who were graduated here have had but sixteen years in which to prove their
parts, and that the majority of the Alumni have but fairly begun their life's work,
We will not anticipate great things. A "Coyote" of later date may record the names
of those written in the l-lall of Fame. The historian for 'O5 can but point out the
paths that seem to be tending thither.
The statistics here given do not include the classes of '02 and '03 for the
obvious reason that many members of these classes are as yet engaged in further
preparation for their chosen work. Prior to nineteen-two there were one hundred
and thirty-seven graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences and the College
of Music. Of these we have information concerning one hundred and twenty-four,
seventy-five men and forty-nine women.
Seventy-nine per cent of the men are engaged in professional Work. Thirteen
men are teachers, five of them holding college positions. Law and the ministry
each claim twelve of the seventy-five. The fact that sixteen per cent of the men
of the Alumni are engaged in the ministry speaks well for the religious tone of our
University, even though it be a State institution of learning. In the medical pro-
fession we find eleven alumni, and in business, ten. Six are journalists or editors,
five are farmers, one is an officer in the United States army, and one a professional
musician. Three of the number are deceased.
Apropos the much discussed question, "Do college women marry?" it is inter-
esting to note that forty-seven per cent of the women of the Alumni have married.
As a match-making institution, it is doubtful whether the University has attained
the same success that it has in other lines. Eleven women married fellow Alumni,
but these unions seem to have occurred in the early history of the institution. The
proportion shown by later records is rather discouraging.
Of the Women in professional life we find eighteen teachers, six professional
musicians, and one nurse.
ln answer to the question, "Where are the Alumni?" we notice that forty-two
are in South Dakota, one in Africa, one in India, six in Washington, eight in Illinois
and five in New York. Many are in the neighboring states of Iowa, Nebraska and
Among the most successful of these We would place the following names: In
law, Arnold Davis, '95, who is a member of a well known New York City firm,
Eric Burgess, '89, of Sioux City, and Joseph Coleman, '89, of Everett, Washing-
ton, have gained distinction. We hear much of the good work of Clarence B.
Antisdel, '88, missionary to Africa, of Stephen Boggs, '91, missionary to India, and
of the ministerial Work of Chas.W. Brinstad, '88, of Omaha, and of Louis P. Val-
entine, '95, of LaCrosse. ln educational lines, Herbert J. Davenport, '85, is a
professor of economics in Chicago Universityg Frank El. Coodell, '89, holds a chair
in Des'Moines College, Miss Genevieve Blair, '92, and A. B. Maynard, '91, are
members of our own faculty. ln high schoolwork Miss Caroline Simpson, '97,
Miss Emeline Jensen, '94, and Miss Flavia Jones, '95, are successfully filling
unusually good positions. Herbert S. Houston, '88, of the World's Work, Clarence
Weed, '89, of the Chicago American and Claire E. Besancon, 'OO, of the Pierre
Free Press, are well known in journalistic circles. Public life, too, has attracted
some of our number. Carl Gunderson, '90, and Jason E. Payne, '94, have been
prominent as State senators in South Dakota. Among those who have filled the
position of county superintendent of schools are Donald A. Crawford, '94, John W.
Addie, '99, and Miss Carrie Daily, '98.
The Alumni has ever been loyal to University interests. It maintains an asso-
ciation by means of which it is able to do effective work in behalf of Alma Mater.
Each commencement time it Welcomes the new members of the Alumni at its
annual banquet. It has a committee whose duty it is to present the merits of the
University to the young people of our State. The establishment of the law school
in nineteen-two we think was accomplished largely through its efforts.
With a roll call of which we are proud, and an organization which we are sure
has proven efficient in Alma Mater's interests, with a spirit of loyalty to the past,
and with great faith as to the future of our University, the Alumni offers this proph-
esy, " What's past is prologue."

University Life in Early Days
A T is difficult to describe that complex of work and play, social
.Q gatherings, friendships, societies, rivalries, contests, athletics,
f enthusiasms and varied activities, that atmosphere known as
, University life, which is a thing apart from University study
f -' and yet a constant accompaniment of it. Yet it is a most
1 ,CQ-3 , u important part of the students' life and work, for in this contact
with fellow students there is a subtle education, This life as it
was in my student days, in the years 1885-1891, I can only very inadequately
portray in the space allotted me.
From 1885 to 1887 there was little that might be called University life.
Nearly all the students were in the preparatory department, and there was more of
the spirit of the academy than of the college or university. ln the year 1887-88 a
great change took place. This was the beginning of a new period for the University
in its formal work and also of a great change in student life. Many new students
came from other colleges and introduced customs that obtained there The most
important element of this kind were eight young men from the former University of
Chicago, but there were students from other colleges. Many of these new comers,
besides being splendid fellows and good students, were " nice young men, " in the
girls' sense of that term, and enlivened the social affairs of the University, though
arousing much jealousy. Among new features introduced at this time, were
"college spirit," the college yell, college songs, Prince Albert coats, lawn tennis,
the Washington banquet, union literary societies, and the Volante. West l-Iall
initiation was invented by a student from the University of Nebraska and spread
rapidly. Soon there was a "war" between the "Chicago Boys," who had the
support of the majority of the young ladies, and the H Dakota Boys." This rivalry
introduced college politics into University life and gave an added zest. Fierce Were
the battles fought in literary societies and the Students' Association, but fortunately
the war left no lasting bitterness.
The athletic contests of those days would appear very amusing now. On
H Field Day " there were many of the track and field events of the present meets,
but there were also such events as potato races, sack races, and throwing base ball.
The most exciting events were the relay race between literary societies and the tug
of war between classes. No one trained for athletic contests. One or two, indeed
went out early in the morning to practice, before others were awake, but practicing
was considered unfair tactics. Without coaching or knowlege of the strategy of the
game, our football team practiced simple plays for the intercollegiate field days, and
was successful. A visit from Robert Speer, the famous Princeton player, in 1890,
brought the first knowledge of the flying wedge and other team plays.
A feature of University life that may be included in this sketch, since it had
no visible connection with the work of the curriculum, was the appearance of
students on the chapel platform. The student was required to evolve from his
inner consciousness for consciencelessnessj a finished essay or oration and deliver
it in chapel. This law, however, was more honored in the breach than the observ-
ance. Finally a conspiracy among the members of a certain class resulted in an
oration several thousand words long, the joint product of the entire class. The
delivery of this composition practically ended the custom.
There were no social organizations except a short-lived one among the girls
known as the B. K's. But "sets" existed, and one year there was a " crowd,"
and these served the same purposes. No parties were given at East I-Iall and there
were very few anywhere. But the Vermillion river and Nebraska I-lills invited to
the study of nature, and the invitation was not neglected.
I could draw many contrasts between those days and the present, but the most
striking development is the prominence of " Fussing " as a recognized art-or is it
a science? There was no such institution then. Of course, as the students were
live young men and maidens, it could but happen that the moth would be attracted
by the candle, and that the candle would sparkle and flutter with especial brilliancy
to attract some too wary moth. 'I Flames" are not always passive. So there were
little comedies and romances then as now. The outcome was much the same, but
it was not a matter-of-fact affair, deliberately named, discussed and classified, and
accepted as an ordinary phenomenon, as it is now. There was no word in our
vocabulary for this feature of University life.
Those were glorious days, when the University and its life were in process of
formation. The memory of its joys, struggles and friendships are an inestimable
pleasure to me. But I must recognize that University life now is much fuller and
richer, and content myself with the thought that of its genesis and early develop-
ment I was a witness, and in it, I hope, a small factor.
ARCHIBALD B. MAYNARD, '9l.
What They Were and What They Did
N IGI-ITLY their dreams wander to the dim and distant future when
1 ' A they too shall immortalize themselves by publishing a junior
f Annual." This is the secret their historian told of them as
. 1' W Freshmen, and now the ideal of those nocturnal dreams has
become a creation. When, in the fall of 1901, they were
' " - thirty-eight youths and maidens, who had independently pur-
posed to make the University of South Dakota their Alma Mater, they needed no
argument establishing the truth of the strength in unity to bring them together.
In their organization, they formed such a union as at once excited the admiration
of all who knew them.
Thereafter the course of 'O5's life was such that no period can be effaced
without taking from the history of their Alma Mater much that has contributed to
her glory. Even if there were not something within each individual prompting to
high minded effort, there would be the impetus to such, in the desire to do some-
thing Worthy of the class to which they belonged. ln class work they have revealed
rare qualities that delight the hearts of scholars and in the manifestations of class
spirit they have had no rival.
That the tree still stands, lending its beauty to the campus, and that the class
record shows that a tree was planted, do not mark that first Arbor Day for '05 as
do the recollections of the spirit manifested by the united body, standing in the
pouring rain, cheering, while it was being planted.
The interest aroused over the banquet they gave '03, extended not only
throughout the University circles but throughout the state, winning for 'O5 an
enviable position as an entertainer.
From the second mile-stone in their college life, they proceeded even more
satisfactorily under the guidance of a father. Following the example of their pre-
decessors they gave the second "Soph Show." Much was expected of them for
their record of the previous year was still fresh. That they even then should call
forth wonder from all, but proved again what their diversified talents, combined,
might accomplish. The next year they entered an even more unusual field when
they accepted the challenge for the football games with the college classes. And
from this, too, they came off champion. No longer can they claim the distinction
of the first year as superior in number to any class preceding. They have had to
give up many who first made that admirable union. Even the past two years have
brought many changes, yet the number remains the same, and their progress unim-
peded. With their continuous development, the members of the class will claim
the innumerable promises awaiting them at the close of their Senior year. They
will shine in the various worlds of achievement as individual stars of the first mag-
nitude-but to their Alma Mater they will be a constellation held together by the
memories bound in the name 'O5.
A New Composer
" HE sudden rise of Edward Elgar to prominence in the musical
fe. .,-:-s. 1
world and the compositions which have produced this effect, are
without doubt the most remarkable musical phenomena of the new
by GX? 0 century. The fact that the discovery of Elgar's great ability was
Q- due in large measure to Richard Strauss, himself the favorite of
' ' ' the hour as a composer, does great credit to the latter's generosity
and catholicity. A few years ago, Elgar was an unknown bandmaster at the County
Lunatic Asylum in London and teacher of the violin at the Worcester College for
the Blind Sons of Gentlemen. As late as 1891 he retired from London unsuccess-
ful in his attempt to live there as a composer. During the succeeding decade he
produced many sterling works in large choral and orchestral forms. But he did not
become famous or even known until, after the production of his oratorio, "The
Dream of Gerontiusf' at the Birmingham festival of 1900, Strauss had procured
its performance at the Lower Rhine festival at Duesseldorf in 1902. He was im-
mediately acclaimed in Germany a great master, and his oratorio as the greatest
since "Elijah." England had become again the birthplace of a masterpiece in ora-
torio, and this time a native son received the honor formerly accorded to a Handel,
a Haydn and a Mendelssohn. The English hailed him as the long awaited messiah
of English music, and his works in all forms have received eager performance
throughout the musical world. Chicago and New York produced "Gerontius"
almost simultaneously in March, 1903. A still later oratorio, "The Apostles" has
been produced in Boston. Mr. Thomas was one of the first to play Elgar's over-
ture "Cockaigne, in London Town" and he gave a superb reading of the composer's
incidental music to "Diarmid and Grania" on January 2nd, of this year. Besides
his many important works for chorus and orchestra, Elgar has written an organ
sonata and numerous compositions for organ, piano and violin, piano solos, and
songs. Unlike Sterndale Bennett, Arthur Sullivan and most Englishmen who have
aspired to musical eminence, but like Henry Purcell and Coleridge-Taylor, Elgar
had not the advantage of continental training. ln fact he has never had, he claims,
more than half a dozen formal music lessons of any kind. This simply means, of
course that he was a thorough student on his own account, deeply conning the
scores of the masters, and having the ability to make a systematic use of the ex-
cellent examples in performance and composition which were around him plentifully
in England. He came ofa musical family, and has studied and composed dili-
gently since early youth.
Art and the opportunities of greatness in art have not passed away, nor are
they limited to any nation. It is encouraging to recognize this at the beginning of a
century the salient feature of which might seem to be an exaggerated materialism.
IMOTHEUS is found. To be sure, this means only three-fifths of
fgjs' one ode, but in comparison with what we knew before it seems a
great deal. The last fifteen years have witnessed three import-
ant discoveries of Greek manuscripts-Aristotle on the Athenian
V' -3,59 Constitution, about 1890, Odes and Hymns of Victory, by
' Bacchylides, about 1897, and now, little more than a year ago,
"The Persians," a nome of Timotheus. Previously the world had been aware only
that Timotheus was a great musician of Miletus, born between the Persian and
Peloponnesian Wars, and dying some time after the ascendancy of Thebes. I-lis
reputation was great, now we have some of his actual verse compositions, the nome
already mentioned, a form of art in which the words are of less importance than
the music. And this music has unfortunately perished irretrievably. Timotheus
was a great innovator, he produced the most startling fsome said outrageousj
descriptive effects in music. Like Terpander, he increased the capacity of the
lyre, adding an eleventh string. His music was better than his poetry, but the latter
is certainly not without interest, especially when it comes suddenly to light after
being buried in an Egyptian coffin since the days of Alexander the Great, nearly
four hundred years before the birth of Christ. The poem found is a description of
the battle of Salamis Q480 B. CQ. The diction is extremely strange and soaring-
l-lere are some phrases: "Long-Winged, bronze-headed, on-cord-stretched-
tight serpents" Qarrowsj, "the emerald-maned sea", "the fish-crowned, marble-
winged billows of Amphitrite", Ufoamy, not-revelled-over rain" fsea watery, "food-
pail" Qthroatj, "O gadfly-maddened object-of-ancient-hate and faithless embracer of
the wave-roaming breeze" Qaddress to the seaj, "star-like the breathless sea swarmed
with bodies soul-bereft", "breaking the clear seal of his mouth" Qspeaking unintel-
ligiblyj, "tracking Qusingj the Ionian speech", "with gleaming criticism", "the
woven form of all my limbs." One cannot help thinking what a gorgeous parody
Aristophanes could have made of all this, when one calls to mind the savage sar-
casm heaped on Euripides, and even the gentle fun poked at Aeschylus in the mock
poetical contest of the Fragf.
The portion of "The Persians" found intact and decipherable in this oldest of
Greek manuscripts, is not the picturesque narrative of l-lerodotus nor the imagined
effect of the tidings of defeat brought to the Persian capital, as in Aeschylus, but an
impressionistic View of parts of the scene. The conflict is treated somewhat like
the battle in Stephen Crane's Red Badge gf Cnunzge. The chief incidents of the
poem are the crash and shock of ships, accompanied by the breaking of oars, the
picture of a landsman slowly drowning and cursing the sea, picture of shivering

inlander being dragged as captive by a Greek, his plea for pity couched in barbarous

Greek vase painting had been suddenly transmuted into exalted verse.

In the Field of Latin Studies
O recent development within the field of Latin Studies is more
fa- " cheering than the growing tendency to lay greater stress upon the
'N history and civilization of the Ancient Romans. This phase of
the work has at all times been regarded as essential but its
relatively great importance has never been so emphasized as now.
Scholars have come to realize that if the modern world is to
enjoy to the fullest the benefits to be gained from an intimate knowledge of this
great people, so long the world's teacher as well as its master, a study of its political
and religious institutions, its public and private life, and its art must be carried
on alongside, and preferably in connection with, the study of its language and litera-
ture. Courses on Antiquities, dealing usually, for the most part, with topography
and architecture, are no longer the only ones offered touching upon the life of the
Romans. Efforts are now made to bring to the knowledge of students, so far as is
possible, detailed information respecting the character, customs, personal appearance,
habits of thought, points of view, mental endowment and aspirations as well as deeds
of the Romans, with a View to giving, as nearly as it can be done from our stand-
point, the true setting of that imperial race. For the purpose of bringing into greater
prominence this part of the work, two leading American universities have changed
the departmental name to that of "Roman History and Literature," interpreting the
term "history" so as to have it cover language. The study of the language proper-
the purely linguistic, grammatical, literary parts of the work-must, of course,
always remain the chief business of students of Latin. But this will in no wise
suffer because of the new tendency. It will, in fact, gain much from it. For the
study of a people's language, unenlightened by a knowledge of their history, is infi-
nitely less productive of good results than such a study pursued with this knowledge.
'With specialists in particular fields of linguistic study, the impulse is strong to con-
fine all their own, as well as their pupils', investigations to the restricted territory
that most interests them, to the neglect of all others. It has been most unfortunate
for the study of the classics, in many places, that specialists in the grammar of the
languages directed almost the entire energies of their pupils to the least interesting,
the dryest side of the subject. That a familiarity with the grammar of a language
is an indispensable prerequisite to the intelligent and the ready interpretation of the
thought of a writer in that language is beyond question. But the attempt to make
the study of grammar an end in itself, instead of a necessary means to something
infinitely more important, results in the student's loss of interest in, and withdrawal
from, language studies. An eminent teacher of the classics, Professor bl. E. B. Mayor,
of Cambridge University, gives the ideal program in these words: "lt will be gener-
ally allowed that the aim of our education should be to equip each of our scholars
with such a knowledge of the language as to enable him to read with ease any
ordinary Greek or Latin book, to give him a taste for the best literature, a thorough
familiarity with a few of the great masterpieces, and a general acquaintance with
the history, art and civilization of the ancient world."
A Recent Economic Tendency
ORTY or fifty years ago the foundations of political economy
seemed so firmly established that many authorities declared the
science had all the certainty and accuracy of Physics and
Chemistry. About that time, however, a disintegrating process
began, which has continued to the present day, and at the present
moment it is hard to say Whether there are any absolutely fixed
and established principles generally accepted by economists or any laws in the sense
that there are demonstrated laws of nature in the physical sciences. To many
people this disintegrating process has been a matter of deep regret and very often
we find people who seem to take pleasure in sneering at the meagre results of
economic study and investigation during the past one hundred years. Yet the
majority of economists have reason to feel more hopeful at the condition of things
to-day than at the condition of things in the middle of the last century. Political
economy as studied to-day is at least free from dogmatism and doctrinairism. The
attitude of mind of the economists at present is one of inquiry rather than of
arbitrary assertion and formulae, and this changed attitude of mind is a great gain
to the economics of to-day.
Fortunately, it has not been all a process of disintegration and revolution.
Especially in the last decade we see quietly beginning in social economics a power-
fully constructive process., It is still too early to observe just how large this
movement will become or to what issues it will lead, but from all indications it
appears to be one ofthe most potent movements of modern times and will have
most important economic results. l refer to the movement for the public owner-
ship of municipal and other public monopolies. Everywhere this question is receiving
the utmost attention, and to-day even the proper kind of bookkeeping for munici-
palities and other public bodies is receiving the study which it deserves, for if our
governments are to go into the business of carrying on public or quasi-public
industries, we must be prepared to educate ourselves to the new work demanded
from us. It is admitted that European cities are ahead of American cities in their
determination to own and operate municipal industries, but American cities are
making rapid advances every year, and it is a characteristic of Americans to do
things more quickly than other people when once they have started on a certain
course. While we in America are somewhat slower than European cities in the
movement for municipal ownership, the time is perhaps not distant when we shall
leave the European cities far behind in this respect.
There is still in America a considerable body of men who question the advan-
tage of a public as opposed to a private administration of public utilities. They
doubt the economy of government ownership and endeavor to show that private
ownership is more careful of small savings, more eager in its desire for improve-
1' V .rg
ments, and more watchful of the interests of the consumer. ln answer to these
points, however, we may say that there are large compensating benefits from public
ovmership. ln the first place, it is doubtful whether private ownership does consult
the public welfare more than public ownership does. Our state educational institu-
tions are to-day as Well equipped and managed for the people as our private
institutions of learning. Secondly, it is doubtful whether the argument of economy
is a good one. There is a habit of saving which is wise, but there is also a habit of
saving which means poor equipment and service. Lastly, however, and most
important of all, is the argument that public ownership tends to put a stop to what
is now called the system of "graft," of which we have had such a large dose in
recent years in different parts of the United States. No doubt there are people who
will point to our post office as an evidence that corruption can take place under public
ownership, but we can point out the fact that ninety per cent of this sort of corruption
has its origin in the desire for special privileges to be obtained from city councils and
state legislatures. No one can study the recent development of graft in a State
like Missouri or a city like St. Louis without seeing abundant illustrations of this
fact. Under public ownership of public utilities no doubt corruption can exist, but
there is far greater likelihood of discovery and punishment than under private
What is necessary, however, is not so much that we should either favor or
oppose public or private ownership, as that we should hold ourselves open to the
experimental method in politics and economics. No one can tell by the apriori
method whether public ownership will be a success or failure. The true solution of
all questions is experience and the only way to secure experience is by experiment.
At present it is beyond question that the European cities are giving themselves
unreservedly to the experiment of municipal ownership. So far no insuperable
difficulties have been noted to the extension of this principle in those countries.
We in America should, above all things, not close our minds to the possible advan-
tages of this great principle as a partial or complete solution for many of our social

English Literature: A Retrospect
'IEW N a period so much under the domination of the sciences as the
, present,the achievements in the field of English literature do not
0 4' . . . .
X make a very impressive. showing. Nothing has happened to
startle the literary historian or the critic. The identity of the
"W. I-I." to whom Shakespere dedicated his Sonnets is as much
a mystery as ever, and the author of Gawayne and the Green
Knight remains veiled in the darkness which shrouds most of the
literary work of the fourteenth century. Even in the matter of old manuscripts
which, like the ballads of Bishop Fercy's Reliques and the Cottonian Beowult,
occasionally crop up to rejoice the heart of the scholar, nothing noteworthy has
appeared. To this statement one exception may perhaps be made-the "Novae Soly-
mae Libri Lex," which, after two hundred years of obscurity, has been discovered,
translated into English, carefully edited, and ascribed on weighty evidence to john
Milton. Should further investigation put Milton's authorship beyond doubt, a notable
addition will have been made to our knowledge of the poet of Paradise Lost.
Nor on the creative side has the last year or two been particularly notable.
The publication, a few months ago, of Kipling's new volume of poems, The Five
Nations, was heralded by the reviews as an event of international importance, but
with the possible exception of The Recessional and The Feet of the Young Men,
there is nothing in the book which promises to have more than a passing notoriety.
Aside from Mr. Kipling, present interest in poetry seems to be centering in the so-
called "Celtic Revival," of which Mr. W. B. Yeats is the principal exponent and
most enthusiastic apologist. This effort to exploit anew the superstitions, the
symbolism and the delicate fancy of the Celtic spirit is already meeting with a rich
reward, and in the hands of such skilled artists as Mr. Yeats, Moira O'Neill, Fiona
MacLeod and Qin prosej Lady Gregory, bids fair to revive in our literature a material
both subtle and beautiful. The poetic drama, also, begins to bestir itself, and Mr.
Phillips, in his Ulysses, has proved a worthy follower of the Elizabethan tradition
in beauty of blank verse if not in power of dramatic conception.
In prose, Mr. james and Mr. Howells are turning out a novel a year with a reg-
ularity which somewhat dulls the edge of curiosity. One can imagine nothing more
skillful and at the same time more sophisticated than The Ambassadors, and Mr.
1-lowells in The Son of Royal Langbrith is as effective and sympathetic in his
characterization as ever. Mr. l-lardy has been silent of late except for a rather
grewsome excursus into poetryg and Mr. Meredith's work has not materially en-
hanced the reputation which The Egoist and Diana of the Crossways gave him a
score of years ago. England seems not yet to have discovered a new Thackeray
or Dickens or George Eliot, and the writers of our own country have not yet responded
to Whitman's appeal for the great American novel.
And finally, the Dictionary of National Biography, lately completed with all its
supplements, stands as a remarkable monument to English letters and as a noble
memorial of its editor, Sir Leslie Stephens, news of whose death comes as these
words are being written. Some notable additions have been made to the English
Men of Letters Series, among them Richardson, l-lazlitt, George Eliot, Ruskin, Matthew
Arnold, Tennyson and Browning. Edmund Gosse and Richard Garnett have written
an elaborate l-listory of English Literature, profusely illustrated with portraits and
facsimiles of first editions. Mr. E. K. Chambers has produced what promises to be
the most valuable discussion yet published of the Mediaeval Stage, and Mr. Saints-
bury has done some valuable work in the History of Criticism.

A Flying Trip into Matbematicsdom
casionally however we hear an Archimedes crying out Eureka.
4 The general opinion prevails that all that can be discovered
in Mathematics has been discovered, that this science is at
. present a "dead science," and that the so-called Mathematicians
occupy their time in inventing useless problems and catch questions
for the examination papers. This, however, is not so.
Since the sixties of the past century, higher Mathematics has made a great
jump forward. New principles have been discovered, which give means of solving
many problems in Mechanics, Physics and Astronomy. A formal science gave
place to investigation of principles and generalizations of many particular problems.
With these investigations the names of Weierstrass, Fuchs, Sophus Lie, Cailey,
Sylvester and Helmholtz are intimately connected. All of these prominent mathe-
meticians have died Within the last decade. The biography of any of them is very
instructive to a student in any science, but especially in Physics and Mathematics.
Sophus Lie was a Norwegian. In 1870 he began his Work on so-called con-
tinuous groups and then within thirty years, created a science which is just as
complete in all details as was Minerva when she emerged from Jupiter's head.
Weierstrass was a German. He created the modern theory of functions. Sylvester
and Cailey were English. Sylvester spent about eight years at Johns Hopkins Uni-
versity in Baltimore and was the founder of the theory of invariants. To him Amer-
cans owe the present development of interest in higher Mathematics. Every
student in Physics has heard the name of Helmholtz.
Though these great men are no more with us, they have left great groups of
their disciples to continue their work. Among the great living mathemeticians, We
must put the names of Poincare, Picard, Darboux, Borel in France, and Hilbert
and Klein in Germany. These men are so far above all other workers in the field
of Mathematics that we do not dare put side by side with them, either any one in
America or even a great many prominent mathematicians in Europe.
One of the last Works of Hilbert was a book on "Foundations of Geometry."
lt takes much preparation to be able to read this book, which was the first to
tell us what kind of a science Geometry is. lt appeared in 1899 and since then
has been translated into almost every language with a literature.
All of the above named great men are in their prime. The oldest is Darboux,
only about fifty-six years old. Poincare was born in 1854. Borel received his
degree of Ph. D. about 1896. Mathematics may yet expect much from these
men and their students.
ATHEMATICS is a science of few sensational discoveries. Oc-
:ilUqg,iwT?yURING the last two or three years, the question of the origin of
ani species has been discussed with new interest, due to the publi-
ci. cation of the results of the experiments that have been carried
jx I 4 on during the last twenty years by Professor DeVries of the
University of Amsterdam. DarWin's well known explanation of
U the formation of new species may briefly be stated as follows:
All animals and plants have strongly engrafted on their organization the character-
istics of variability and heredity. Organisms vary in many different directionsg the
variations which occur in one individual reappear in its offspringg if the variation
makes the individual less adapted for its environment than those which did not vary,
it will not survive in the struggle for existence which is constantly going on, if, how-
ever, the variation makes it better adapted to engage in the struggle with its com-
petitors and the environment, it will survive and leave offspring like itself. Nature,
in this way, selects those individuals which have varied along lines that make them
better adapted for their surroundings. These variations are usually very small and
at first practically imperceptibleg but by a slow accumulation of these almost
infinitessimal changes, new species are gradually formed.
Since the time of Darwin, most biologists have accepted this explanation, and
have taken it for granted that the long time required for the origin of a new species,
makes it impossible to subject the process to observation and experiment, DeVries,
however, claims to have observed the origin of several new species from one of the
evening primroses, Oenothera Lamarckiana. His extensive experiments show
some interesting results: All living organisms pass through very long periods
during which they exhibit no signs of variation. From this condition in which
heredity reigns supreme, they pass into comparatively short mutation periods, which
are so marked that new species are formed complete by sudden jumps. The new
species do not appear only once and in single specimens, but they are formed
several years in succession, and in numbers varying from 1 per 1,000 to I per 1OO
of the parent species. Many of the new species fail to survive because of some
more or less evident weakness, while those which are equal or superior to the
parent become permanently established.
If the results of DeVries should be confirmed by observations on other forms,
it would make the theory of origin by descent appeal more strongly to those who
have not made any special study of biology.
The Chamberlin Planetesimal Hypothesis:::To Explain
the Origin and Growth of the Earth
6 55-53354 'C S a rule it would be difficult to state the most important acquisition to
qi geological knowlege during any one year: however just at this time, to
U x I, my mind, the task is an easy one. The past few months have added much
1. 5 valuable information to the science of Geology. The most important of
Q, D , X which, the one freighted with the greatest results, the one destined to pro-
eb I , duce little less than a revolution in many hitherto well accepted beliefs, is
' without doubt "Thr Chamberfin Planezesimaf Hypothesis" for the origin of the
Earth. Conceived and introduced by Professor Thomas C. Chamberlin, head of the Depart-
ment of Geology, in the University of Chicago, and ex-president of the University of Wisconsin.
The Nebular Hypothesis, introduced by Kant and Swedenborg and later mathematically
discussed by Laplace, is now well known to all, having been almost universally accepted for
the last century. Sir Norman Lockyer introduced at a later date the Meteoric Hypothesis,
which did not gain general recognition.
The third scientific attempt to formulate even a working theory for the early history
of the earth is the New Chamberlin Planetesimal Hypothesis. The detailed explanation of
this theory is not yet in print. For my information of the hypothesis I am indebted to the
kindness of Professor Chamberlin for personal explanation and also to Professor PTairchild's
paper read at the St. Louis meeting before the Geological Society of America. .
Full details of the theory will appear soon in the forth-coming text book on Geology by
Professors Chamberlin and Salisbury, published by Henry Holt 8a Co.
Some of the leading beliefs of the new hypothesis may be briefly stated as follows:
l. The Earth was formed by the accumulation of separate and independently moving
masses of cool matter. These masses had their origin in the parent Spiral Nebulae of the
solar system. This nebulae, before the earth was built up was transformed into a vast num-
ber of small bodies called planetesimals, revolving around a common center.
2. The Earth as we know it, was never in a molten or semiplastic condition from great
heat. The internal heat of the earth had its origin in condensation due to gravitational forces.
3. The Earth's development was not from a larger and ever contracting globular mass
of nebulous matter, but from a small nucleus by aggregations of cool planetesimals.
4. The Hydrosphere and Atmosphere of the earth had their origin, not without, but
from within the Lithosphere, having been forced out by reason of pressure and heat. Hence
these are not coeval but subsequent in their origin to the more solid or rock mass ofthe earth.
5. In order of formation doubtless the atmosphere came first, for no water, as such,
could remain on the earth until the surface of the lithosphere was warm enough to let mois-
ture exist in the form of water. The air and water volumes are still in the process of formation.
6. Carbon Dioxide, along with other gases, and many salts andsolids subject to sublimation
have all come from within the earth, having been pushed out by contraction, pressure and heat.
7. The hetrogeneity of the material of the earth, under the Chamberlin Hypothesis,
makes limited local volcanic ejections possible and reasonable.
8. The extensive salt beds distributed through the eras from the Eozoic to the present
time, may in part be due to eruptive material instead of totally from the evaporation of sea
water, which would require such an extremely hot and dry climate.
9. ,Ores both in solution and in the form of vapor would have easily risen along with the
ejection of subterranean waters, and been deposited in veins.
IO. The limits, both of geological time and of life development, are removed, much 'to
the relief of the sciences of Biology and Geology.
The Chamberlin Planetesimal Hypothesis by which so many intricate and unsolved prob-
lems appear to be easily understood, impresses one as the greatest masterpiece of exhaustive
research, scientific observation, and brilliant generalization, by which modern Geology has
aided the world of science.
is difficult to select any one thing which may be called the
"most striking of the year" in the Department of French and
German. The really important things in literary lines are hard
to fix upon, since there is needed the perspective of time to set
a "literary event" in its true light. That which is the "fad" of
'- to-day may be forgotten to-morrow, and the shelves of book
stores swarm with works claiming to be equal to those of the great masters, which
have been completely forgotten. l-lowever, two movements seem especially notice-
able to-day in connection with modern languages.
The first is the steady progress of the "observation method," if such it may be
called, in the study of a foreign tongue. The experience of the "Reformed Gym-
nasium" in Frankfort on the Main is bearing fruit all over the world. The principle
is becoming established that the only legitimate method of study in connection with
living languages is the one that requires from the learner a constant daily use both
in speaking and writing. This speaking and writing must have a definite plan and
purpose, and must at least begin with the common daily life, and in this way develop
some such knowledge of the new speech as is found in the mother tongue. lt can
not, of course, be as extensive a knowledge as that of our native language, but to a
limited extent it can be of the same nature. This constitutes a foundation on which
the student can rear as extensive a super-structure as he pleases. This movement
has now gained such headway that at least six of the leading European languages
are provided with complete sets of pictures, books and charts for the application of
this method of instruction. Translation is retained only to insure accuracy and to
furnish a convenient test, but is no longer regarded as the chief feature of the reci-
tation. The results that have been attained under competent teachers in Europe
are surprising to those who are only familiar with what has been done under the old
plan even by the best instructors.
As a direct outgrowth of this movement and in harmony with its principles cor-
respondence circles have sprung up which give the student a new interest in his
work. By these circles he is put in correspondence with one or more students of his
own age and class in the country whose language he is studying. Regular letters
are exchanged, each one, of course, writing in the foreign language. The letters
are mutually corrected and returned and each has the benefit of the experience
gained from a real, living correspondent. Each writes of his own country, its insti-
tutions, customs, habits, scenery, etc., etc. Each is eager to make his correspond-
ence as readable as possible, and each listens to the daily instruction with a new zest
as he now has a practical purpose in his work. Young people in many countries are
entering into the scheme with enthusiasm and an impulse is thus given to foreign
language study which can be gained in no other way. The weekly or monthly letter
gives a stimulus under which even dull composition work in the class is transformed
into a thing of interest as its practical helpfulness is instantly apparent. The daily
"grind" ceases to be a burden and work becomes a pleasure. Our own students
will be given an opportunity to join in this movement during the coming year.
Progress in the Law
wgafljggiivjgt-'I HE conservatism of the law is proverbial. ln its adherence to the past,
sf 9 X -I 'g it may sometimes fail in meeting new conditions and in doing exact
justice. But for this defect, if it may be called such, there is some com-
pensation in the certainty of the law. Better the individual instance of
injustice than that transactions and conduct generally should have no
' fixed rule of guidance and interpretation. Better, also, as a general
proposition, that legislation upon any question affecting the public gener-
ally await settled public opinion. For this is what in the end gives efficacy to the law.
But society, for which the law is made and exists, is continually changing. The movement
is forward and always toward higher standards, and to more complex conditions. The law
must still touch and regulate all. lt follows that somewhere there must be corresponding
change in the law.
In former times the change was affected largely through means of legal fietions. They
professed to retain the law, but through methods of procedure annulled many rules not adapted
to the demands of a progressive society. Equity which followed, especially in our English
jurisprudence, was first administered as a distinct system. lt had for its foundation equal
justice between contending parties, it mitigated the rigors of the common law and afforded
relief where else there was none. lt was grounded in right morals and its establishment marks
an era in Anglo Saxon jurisprudence. The present tendency everywhere is to assimilate
the two systems, and to have their principles administered and applied by the same tribunal
and under the same form of action.
This is accomplished largely through a third step in the progress of the law, namely legis-
lation. But While legislation has to some extent been remedial, thus superseding equity, its
greatest function in the reform of the law is not in affecting many and radical changes in the
law of private right and obligation, but in procedure and in new methods of administering the law.
lt is true that human laws take cognizance of external acts only, and thus it is said. that
law and morality are provinces to be kept separate and distinct. This is in a large sense true.
But in the history of the successive steps in the progress of the law above noted may be seen
the close relation between law and morals. Even some of the fictions of the law, the inven-
tion of which was prompted by self-interest, found justification for their use in the better
social conditions which they served to promote. This in itself is an ethical consideration of
the highest importance. As to equity, it was distinctly grounded on principles of natural
justice and good conscience: it was the law "written on the hearts of men." The further
assimilation of the two systems is but a recognition of the principle that the end and purpose
of all law is the administration of justice between man and man.
The problems of the times are many: it is not certain that the law, in its administration
at least, has quite kept pace with the rapid changes in the industrial world. lmpatience is
sometimes manifested because there is no apparent remedy for the alleged abuse or the dan-
gerous tendency. But it is no reproach to the law that in rapid and world wide changes in
social and business relations the new legal relations are not at once seen and new remedies
devised and applied. The conservatism of the law is society's safeguard. lt is opposed to mere
experiment and waits for the demands of those conditions which imply permanency in society
and in the law. But there is evidence of a new spirit, especially in the law of remedies. The
extreme technicalities which were for a long time the reproach of the law have been eliminated.
There is new assurance in the now general recognition by Courts of the adaptability of the law to
all new relations and conditions. The future will see yet closer association in the ideas of moral
right and legal right and in this lies the promise of further progress in the law.

HE eleventh annual course of study in t.his institution will begin Wednesday,
September 21, 1904. The course in this college consists of four terms of'
seven and one-half months each. The first two years are devoted to the
study of the so-called scientihc branches included in a medical course. For this
purpose, the new college building is furnished with lecture rooms and laboratories
equipped with the latest and best paraphernalia for teaching, demonstrating, and for
individual work in these branches. The third and fourth years are given up to the
study of' what might be termed the practical part of the medical course. Here the
instruction is carried on by means of Clinics and Clinical lectures. The student is
brought in contact and becomes familiar with the different phases of' all the diseases
he reads about. For this purpose the clinical material in St. Joseph's, St. Bernard's
and Mercy Hospitals, the three largest hospitals in the West, is reserved for the
exclusive benefit of students attending this school.
All buildings, both college and hospitals, are new and modern, and the equip-
ment the best that money can buy. In addition to the regular term of seven and
one-half' months, a spring course of' two months in first and second year work will
be continued from close of' winter term to last of' June.

The Crescent 1 ublishing Company of Minneapolis are sole agents in the West for F. B. Dickerson's publi-
cations including HChase." For their reliability you are referred to the N. W. National Bank of Minneapolis,
to the Postmaster of Detroit, Michigin and President of the First-Class Postmasters' Association of United States.
For their square dealing, you are referred to any and all of the students who have worked for them, and for
any information about work for the coming summer, you are referred to A. Mendelson, P. C. Hvistcndahl or the
Business Manager of "The Coyote," T. C. Thompson.
Oh, 1'm ajolly student in the rich and fertile West,
And lim making lots of money selling "Chase-'s Last and Best."
I can say with true conviction that you can in every case,
Pay your way along through college, if you Just Sell "Ch8SB.',
During every day in Spring-time, college boys are called to see,
VVhat some agent has to show them in a salary "guarantee,"
Let me caution you, go slowly, they are a hoax in every case,
You may not return to college, if you D0n't Sell "Chd5e."
You may try to sell "Chatauqua " you may try the "Views and Scopes "
Or a thousand things may tempt you as the boon for cherished hopes,
But I'm a college student and can say in every case,
You'll be sure to come to college, if you Just Sell "Ch8Se."
So when other firms approach you with a bait of "guarantees,"
Or, some other things to show you that they claim will always please,
just tell them H. L. Baldwin deals fair in every case,
And, as you pay your way through college, you will Just Sell "Chase."

Oi much Importance to You
"'Every man should gather together good books under his roof where he and ltis family may secure
daily communion tvith them. Most any luxury should be sacrificed to this."
Such books,limitctl in number as they must of necessity be, should contain the writings ofthe men
who have had something to say for themselves and thus have laid the foundations of modern thought and
Itis a fact that most small libraries are painfully indiscriminate, mere dilutions and repetitions.
They do not bring us into communion with the best thoughts of great men or take us from the common-
place and carry us to a higher level.
HTHE WORLD'S GREAT CLASSICS"
is a protest against both indiscrimination in books andthe mere compilation of abstracts. It aims to gather
into forty handsome volumes the greatest works complete of the ruling minds in literaturc,to offer only
those books which have no substitutes.
The BOARD which undertook to bring together, interpret, and edit this important library, it is
needless to say, were fully aware ofthe seriousness of their task and have only recently completed their
tvork. Their desire is that it may encourage throughout the land the earnest pursuit ofthe very highest
and most uplifting forms of literature.
The names ofthe BOARD appear below and it will at once be recognized that high authorityin the
various branches of literature is secured.
