For many years the higher classes of the University of Texas have wished to produce an annual. At first it was talked about, then efforts grew more definite until last year almost beheld its birth. This year our " Cactus " greets you. She is the tender offspring of the Academic and Law Classes of ' 94, and there- fore to them dear. She is a first child and, as such, doubly dear. Adorned with her own sweet flower, she first leaves her Texas home to greet her elder brothers. The labor that has been expended, the anxious care of these, the pioneer editors are now forgotten, and we bid our " Cactus " God speed, hoping that to those she meets she may bring some knowledge of our college organizations and some savor of college cheer and college fun.

On September ii, 1841, I eslie Waggener first saw the light in Trenton, Todd connty, Ky. Passing over his early school days, we find him, in i860, a Senior in Harvard, having just gradu- ated in Bethel College, Russellville, Ky. Soon after taking his A. B., at Harvard, he enlisted as a private in the Confederate army. He was left for dead on the field of Shiloh, but a negro boy, whom he had brought from home, found him and carried him to Corinth. His life was despaired of by the surgeon, but after some months he regained his health. Having rejoined his regiment, which had been changed in the meantime to the 9th Kentucky, Hanson ' s Brigade, Breckenridge ' s Division, Array of Tennessee, he took part in the expedition under John Morgan to Hartsville, Tenn. About this time he became second lieutenant in the company in which he had first enlisted. Dr. W. was at the battle of Chickamauga and was again wounded, though not se- verely. In the investment of Chattanooga and in the retreat from Missionary Ridge he was present, and while in winter quar- ters at Dal ton (1863-4) temporary appointment on the staff of Brigadier-General Lewis. Passing over the engagements at Resaca, Dallas, New Hope Church, Kennesaw Mountain and Peach Tree Creek, we find Dr. Waggener at Atlanta (July 226. and 28th) and at Jonesboro. His brigade having been almost destroyed at this latter place, its sur- vivors were mounted and went to increase the cavalry under Wheeler. When Johnston ' s army, which included them, sur- rendered. Dr. Waggener was adjutant of his regiment. In June, 1866, he arrived at his home in Russellville, Ky. June 27, 1867, Dr. Waggener was united in marriage with Miss Fannie Pendleton, of Uplands, Pa. Her father was James M. Ivecturer on the History of Medicine and Demonstrator of Physi- ology, David Ckrna, M. D.. Ph. D. Lecturer on Medical Jurisprudence, Hon. Robert G. Street, B. A. Lecturer on Clinical Surgery, Gary H. Wilkinson, M. D. Lecturer on Diseases of the Skin, and Assistant in Pathology, George H. Lee, M. D. Demonstrator of Anatomy, Thomas Flavin, M. D. Professor of Pharmacy and Lecturer on Botany, and Dean of the Pharmaceutical Faculty, James Kennedy, Ph. G., M. D. Provost and Librarian of the Medical Department, James P. Johnson. one year the Lawrence County Normal School, and spent a term in the Millersville, Pennsylvania, State Normal School. From 1858 to 1867 he was President of the Indiana Normal School at Kokomo. During this decade he held one hundred teachers ' in- stitutes and delivered six hundred educational addresses, thus contributing to the establishing of the excellent school system of Indiana. From 1867 to 1881 he was President of the first Missouri State Normal School, Kirksville, Mo. During these fourteen years he conducted one hundred and fifty teachers ' in- stitutes and State normals, and gave one thousand educational addresses, thus building up the Missouri school system. From 1881 to 1891 he was President of the Sam Houston State Normal School, Huntsville, Texas. At the close of this term the Regents of the University of Texas, having created the School of Pedagogy, unanimously elected Dr. Baldwin to take charge of it. It is to be hoped that he will remain a decade in this position, thus rounding out a half century of teaching. During all these years Dr. Baldwin has been a constant con- tributor to the standard educational journals of the world, and has embodied his life-work in three noted books — ' ' Art of School Management, " " Elementary Psychology, " and " Psychology Ap- plied to the Art of Teaching. " CHAS. Iv. EDWARDS. Charles L. Edwards, Professor of Biology, was born Decem- ber 8, 1863, at Oquawka, Illinois, on the Mississippi river. He took the B. S. degree at Lombard University in 1884, B. S. at Indiana University in 1886, and A. M. in 1887. He attended the Johns-Hopkins University in 1887, 1888 and 1889, and the University of Leipsic in 1890, taking the degree of Ph. D. He was Fellow of Morphology at the Clark University in 1891 and 1892, and Director of the Summer Laboratory of Biology at Min- neapolis in 1887. He has been connected with the following zoological explorations: Florida, in the spring of 1876, the Bahamas, in the summers of 1889, 1891 and 1893, the Gulf coast of Texas, in the summer of 1892. He has published several in- teresting articles in American scientific journals. SYI.VKSTER PRIMER. Sylvester Primer was born in the State of Wisconsin, on the 14th of December, 1840, but removed to New York early in life, where he lived to the age of sixteen. He spent three years at LeRoy Academy and three years at Phillips Exeter Academy, N. H, After graduating at the latter institution, Mr. Primer studied for three years at Harvard, where he graduated with the degree of Bachelor of Arts in 1874. Immediately afterwards he went to Germany, and studied at Leipsic, Gottingen and Strass- burg. In 18S0, Mr. Primer received the degree ol Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) from the last mentioned University. He next taught for about one year in a military school, but returned in the latter part of the same year to his native country. Upon his return he received the appointment of Professor of Modern Languages in the College at Charleston, S. C, where he taught for a period of eight years. In 1889 Dr. Primer went to Rhode Island, and taught for one year in the Friends ' School, Providence, when he received a call to the chair of Modern Lan- guages in Colorado College, Colorado Springs. After teaching there one year he was elected Professor of Teutonic Languages in the University of Texas, where he has now been actively en- gaged for three years. Professor Primer is the author of a con- siderable number of books, besides having contributed many articles to the leading philosophical journals of the United States. He has now in the press an edition of Lessing ' s Nathan the Wise for the use of schools. JOSEPH BALDWIN. Joseph Baldwin, the subject of this sketch, was born in New- castle, Penn., in 1827. From his father, who was a native Vir- ginian and also a teacher, he gained the habits of hard work and the love of learning that have made him famous. His early education was in the public schools, of which he is a most enthusiastic exponent and upbuilder. He prepared for College in Bartlett Academy and graduated in Bethany College, Va., in 1852. During the same year he was elected principal of the Platte City, Missouri, Academy In 1856, he conducted for FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY. Thomas S. Mii ler, LL.

D, V Pendleton, who was a professor in Union University, Murfrees- boro, Tenn., at the time Dr. Waggener was connected with the institution as a student. In 1870, he was given the chair of En- glish lyiterature in Bethel College, Russellville, Ky., having pre- viously been principal of the preparatory department. In 1873, he succeeded Noah K. Davis as chairman of the faculty, the lat- ter gentleman having accepted a position in the University of Virginia as Professor of Moral Philosophy. He was president of Bethel College from 1876 to 1883, when he came to Austin, hav- ing been elected Professor of English Literature and History in the newly established University of Texas. Dr. Waggener has been chairman of the faculty since 1884, and under his guidance the University has made great progress. In 1867, Dr. Waggener received the degree of A. M. from Bethel College, Ky., " while in 1875, Georgetown College, Ky., conferred on him that of I L- D. ROBERT LEWIS DABNEY. Robert Lewis Dabney was born March 5, 1820, in the county of Louisa, Virginia, forty miles west of Richmond. His parents were Col. Chas. Dabney and Elizabeth Price, his wife, descend- ants of early colonists from the adjoining county of Hanover. He was prepared for college in mixed classical and English schools of the neighborhood, and on June i, 1836, joined the Sophomore Class half advanced in Hampden-Sidney College, Virginia. Leaving here in October, 1837, on account of his mother ' s widowhood, he taught a mixed neighborhood school in his native county for two years. In December, 1839, he en- tered the University of Virginia, which institution he left July 4, 1842, with the degree of Master of Arts. October, 1844, he entered Union Theological Seminary, Virginia, leaving in June, 1846, Bachelor of Divinity. After preaching seven years and two months, — one year as licentiate in the Presbyterian Church in Louisa county, and six years and two months as ordained minister in Augusta county, Virginia, — he returned to Union Seminary in September, 1853, as Professor of Ecclesiastical His- tory and History of Doctrine and Philosophy, etc. In 1859, he was transferred to the professorship of Systematic Theology in the same institution, which position he held until his removal to Texas University, in 1883. The war between the States having nearly emptied the Sem- inary of students, Dr. Dabney followed them, in May, 1861, into the army, first as Chaplain of the i8th Virginia Volunteers In- fantry, and in 1862, as Chief of Staff to General T.J. (Stonewall) Jackson, obtaining furloughs from the institution. In Septem- ber, 1862, he resigned his position on Jackson ' s staff, on account of protracted disease, camp tevers, etc. Partially recovering, he divided his time during the remainder of the war as Major of Home Guards and missionary preacher of the army of Lee. In May, 1883, he resigned from Union Theological Seminary on account of broken health, the result of old camp diseases and malaria, threatening pulmonary results. The same year he was elected Professor of Philosophy in the new University of Texas, and took part in its foundation, September, 1883, I June, 1890, his resignation was tendered to the Board of Regents, on account of loss of eyesight and impaired health. The Board, however, declined to accept the resignation, and made the following al- ternative offer, viz.: for him to retain full control of the School of Philosophy on half salary, with an adjunct professor to lighten his labors. This was accepted, and continues to the presnt time. Dr. Dabney ' s position has constrained him to frequent author- ship. First, in 1854, " Memoir of Dr. Francis S. Sampson; " in 1862, " Defence of Virginia and the South, " written for the Con- federate Government; in 1865, " Life of Stonewall Jackson, " by request of his widow; in 1866, " Sacred Rhetoric; " in 1871, " Course of Systematic and Polemic Theology; " second edition in 1879; in 1882, " History of Sensualistic Philosophy of the i8th Century; " in 1885, " Inductive Logic, " treatise for the Vic- toria Institute, London; 1890-93, " Collected Discussions, " three volumes, besides many review essays uncollected. Dr. Dabney received the title of D. D. from Hampden-Sidney College, and aftewards that of LL. D. from two colleges simul- taneously. KDGAR EVERHART. The subject of this sketch was born April 8, 1854, in Stokes county, North Carolina. He was educated at Richmond, Va., Baltimore, Md., and Racine, Wis., at which latter place he re- ceived the Master ' s Degree. He then attended the School of Mines of New York city. After remaining there for some years, he went to Germany and attended lectures at the Universities of Wiesbaden and Freiburg. After receiving the degree of Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Freiburg, Dr. Bverhart re- turned to America, and taught Chemistry and the allied branches for five years in the Stevenson Institute, Hoboken, New York. He came to the University of Texas in 1884, where he has, for the last ten years, been Professor of Chemistry. The splendid chemical laboratory will always remain a monument to his untir- ing efforts to make the School of Chemistry what it is, the best in the South. Doctor Everhart has written many articles for American scien- tific journals that have attracted wide attention, and he has been elected a member of the German Chemical Society, the American Chemical Society, and American Society for the Advancement of Science. GEPRGE BRUCE HAI TED. The subject of this sketch was born in the State of New York. In 1875 he received the degree of Bachelor of Arts at Princeton. While at that institution, Dr. Halsted ranked high in all his classes, but especially did he distinguish himself in mathematics. On graduation, he won the fellowship in the above mentioned branch, besides gaining the intercollegiate prize. He next repaired to the School of Mines of New York City, where he devoted himself to mathematics and the natural sci- ences. Prof. Halsted next spent several years at the University of Berlin, Germany. Then followed his appointment as Fellow in Mathematics at the Johns-Hopkins University, Baltimore, where he studied two years, enjoying, at the same time, the instruction of that eminent mathematician, J. J. Sylvester, now professor in the University of Oxford. In 1879, Dr. Halsted received the de- gree of Doctor of Philosophy, and then lectured for some time on logic and mathematics in the Johns-Hopkins. In 1879, he was called to Princeton, where he was appointed Instructor in Post-Graduate Mathematics, and taught quaternions, determinants, etc. In 1884, Dr. Halsted was appointed Professor of Pure and Ap- plied Mathematics in the University of Texas. Since this time he has been engaged in arduous work and has contributed many important articles to numerous scientific journals. Among these may be mentioned, Boole ' s Logical Method, Statement and Re- duction of Syllogism in ihQ Journal of Speculative Philosophy, and the Bibliography of Hyper-Space a7id No7i- Euclidian Geometry in the America i Journal of Matheinatics . But the most important labors of our professor are his text- books and scientific treatises. In 1885 appeared his " Metrical Geometry. " The book is especially cited in the last edition of the " Kncyclopsedia Britannica, " and the article, Mensuration borrows largely from his book on that subject. It has already been adopted as a text-book in several colleges, and an English edition has been issued by MacMillan and Company. In 1885 he published his ' ' Elements of Geometry. " In 1892, appeared the " Elementary Synthetic Geometry, " the first book to reach its results without making any use of of congruent triangles. In addition to these works we must mention his Non-Euclidian Geometry, the first English translation of the work of Nicholaus Lobatschewsky; " The Science Absolute of Space, " the first English translation of the work of John Bolyai, and his " Num- ber, Discrete and Continuous, " an Exposition of the Origin and Growth of the Number C oncepts. Dr. Halsted has now ready for the press " Pure Projective Geometry, " which is followed by a treatise on " Projective Metrics. " ALEXANDER MACFARLANE. Dr. Macfarlane was educated at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, where he obtained the degree of M. A., with highest honors in mathematics and physics, in 1875; B. Sc. in 1877, and D. Sc. in 1878. While a student he won, by competitive exam- inations in Greek, I atin, mathematics and physics, prizes and scholarships worth upwards of $3000. After graduating as Doc- tor of Science, he was appointed the University Examiner for Degrees in the department of Mathematics and Physics, which position he held until called to the University of Texas. His doctor ' s thesis was " On the Disruptive Discharge of Electricity, " which, together with subsequent researches on the same subject, were published by the Royal Society of Edinburgh. These pa- pers contained important discoveries which have been verified by subsequent experimenters. On account of these researches, he was, at a very early age, elected a Fellow of the Royal So- ciety of Edinburgh. While examiner, he published a book entitled Principles of the Algebra of Logic, and a number of papers on the Analysis of Re- lationship; these now form an integral part of the modern math- ematical logic. Just before coming to the University of Texas, he published his Physical Arithmetic, and since then Eleme7itary Mathematical Tables. He received the degree of EL. D. from the University of Michigan in 1887, on the occasion of their semi- centennial. Recently, he has published six memoirs on mathe- matical physics, and has read before scientific bodies three others which are not yet published. These papers have been discussed in the leading scientific journals of America; and they have al- ready taken their place in the history of analysis. A set of wire models, made to illustrate this subject, was exhibited at the World ' s Fair, and received a medal and diploma for their orig- inality and ingenuity. He is a member of the American Institute of Electrical Engin- eers, and has contributed several papers to their Trajisactions. He is the Honorary Secretary of the Texas Academy of Science, and was recently elected a corresponding member of the Sociedad Scie7itijic " Antonio Alzate ' of Mexico. GEORGE P. GARRISON. Professor George P. Garrison, who so ably fills the chair of History in the University of Texas, was born forty-one years ago. His long college career began at Sewanee College, Win- chester, Tennessee, and after spending four years there and at the Carroll Masonic Institute, Carrollton, Georgia, he pursued a two years course of study at the University of Edinburgh, where he fully equipped himself for his chosen profession. Coming to Texas in 1881, he was married, and shortly afterwards began teaching at San Marcos. Fortune seemed to smile upon the ef- forts of the young pedagogue, for, in 1884, he was appointed In- structor of English in the University of Texas, from which posi- tion he was rapidly promoted until appointed Associate Professor of History, the position he now fills. Not only is Professor Garrison eminently qualified for the chair of History by reason of his profound learning, but he is also one of the most popular members of the Faculty. Uniformly kind, considerate and encouraging, he is a general favorite of all with whom he comes in contact. THOMAS U. TAYLOR. Mr. Taylor was born in Parker county, Texas. His early student years were spent in his native State, but in 1883 he grad- uated at the University of Virginia, taking the degree of C. E. Immediately after graduation he was elected to take charge of Miller ' s Manual Labor School, in Virginia. Here he remained until he came to the University of Texas, in 1888, since which time he has been at the head of the School of Applied Mathe- matics. This year he has been granted leave of absence, and his place is filled by Mr. R. A. Thompson. THOMAS FITZ-HUGH. The subject of this sketch was born October 12, 1862, and received his first training in the schools of the neighborhood. He then entered the University of Virginia, and chose the course leading to the degree of Master of Arts. After remaining at that institution for two years, he accepted a position in Bing- ham ' s school, North Carolina, as instructor of Ancient Lan- guages. In the year following, he returned to the University of Virginia, and in that year completed his Master ' s course with the exception of philosophy, whereupon he received a call to the chair of Latin of Central University, Kentucky, which he ac- cepted and filled for one year, all the while arduously pursuing in private his studies in philosophy. And thus alternately studying snd teaching, he received in 1883 his Degree of Mas- ter of Arts. He was now appointed Head Master of Bellevue High School, Bedford county, Virgina, at the same time filling the chair of the Classics and also that of Mathematics. In 1888, he received a call to the chair of Mathematics in Mi- ami University, which he declined, since he was already em- ployed for his fifth year at Bellevue. In 1888, Prof. Fitz-Hugh was elected Adjunct Professor of Latin in the University of Texas, having full charge of that school. Although he was at the same time tendered the Profes- .sorship of Mathematics in the University of Mississipi, he pre- ferred the scene of his present labors, having decided henceforth to devote his life entirely to classical philology. In June, 1891, Prof. Fitz-Hugh was made Associate Professor. In June, 1892, he was granted leave of absence for one year in order to pursue his studies in Europe. On the 23rd of the same month, he was married in Baltimore, Md., to Miss Kath- erine Lefevre, sister of the late Dr. Walter Lefevre, of this University. Crossing the ocean for the second time, he spent the summer months in studying classical antiquities in the muse- ums of Munich. In 1892, he entered the University of Berlin, which he attended for two semesters. Prof. Fitzhugh secured about $900 as an appropriation for the Latin Library of our University, and succeeding in making some invaluable additions to its classical equipment. In September, 1893, he returned to America, to resume his duties in the Uni- versity. MORGAN CAIvIvAWAY, JR. Having been educated at Emory College, in which his father held the Chair of English, he spent four years at Johns-Hop- kins, pursuing a course which led to the degree of Doctor of Philosophy. Immediately upon leaving the last named college, Dr. Callaway was appointed Professor of English in the South- western University, at Georgetown, Texas, which chair he filled with eminent ability until 1890, when he received the appoint- ment of Assistant Professor of English in the University of " A Texas. From the position of Adjjinct Professor of English, and, at present, as stated above, he was elected Associate Professor of English Philology. Tlys sketch would be incomplete without mention of some of his well-known writings. He is the author of the article which appeared in the Methodist Quarterly Reviezv in 1884, entitled, ' Jane Welsh Carlyle; " a " Discourse on the Absolute Participle in Anglo-Saxon, " which was published in 1889; an exceedingly valuable paper upon the subject of " English in Our Preparatory Schools, " 1891; reviews of " Bright ' s Anglo-Saxon Reader " and " Cook ' s First Book in Old English, " which appeared in 1892 and 1894, respectively. In addition to the foregoing, Dr. Calla- way has recently arranged to edit an edition of the poems of our Southern bard, Sidney Lanier, to be published by Scribners, of New York. WAI TER LEFEVRE. There has passed away a glory from the earth. All that is immortal of Walter Lefevre has departed from its house of clay and taken its journey to its celestial mansion. Walter Lefevre was born in Baltimore, Maryland, May 18, i860. At the age of 16 he became a communicant member of the Franklin Square Presbyterian church of that city, of which his father. Rev. Dr. J. A. Lefevre, was pastor. In this Christian faith he lived and died. He graduated in Baltimore City College, with first honors, in June, 1878; and in the University of Virginia, with the degree of Master of Arts, in June, 1882. Whilst a student in this Uni- versity, he won the Magazine medal and the Debater ' s medal, thus receiving all the honors to be gained in that ancient and distinguished institution. He then went to Germany and matriculated in the University of Berlin, where he studied during the winter and summer semes- ters of 1882-3. His chief study was philosophy proper, and the allied branches. At the end of this year ' s study, he returned to America, and studied law for one year in the University of Vir- ginia, and was admitted to the bar in Richmond in the autumn of 1884. IN MEMORIAM. WALTER LEFEVRE,:Ph. D., Died February 2, 1894. He soon took up his abode in St. Paul, Minnesota, where he practiced law for two years. Here, in December, 1886, he was married to Miss Ada Swartzwelder, of Virginia, a rarely accom- plished and noble-minded woman. In the spring of 1887, prompted by an earnest, ever present desire to devote his life to philosophy, he relinquished the prac- tice of law and, with his wife, returned to Germany, where for two years he continued his philosophic studies, under the guid- ance of the master minds of Europe. The winter and summer semesters of 1887-88 were passed in Berlin; in the autumn of 1888 he matriculated at the University of Heidelberg in order to hear the famous historian of Modern Philosophy, Prof. Kuno Fischer, whose idealistic philosophy was in perfect accord with his own. Here he spent two semesters, winning the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, insigni cum laude, in August, 1889. He returned to America in November of that year, and, during the winter of 1889-90, delivered a special course of lectures on the History of Greek Philosophy in the Johns-Hopkins University, of Baltimore, of which institution he was made a Fellow, by courtesy. In September, 1890, Dr. Lefevre was elected Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Political Science in the University of Texas. Two weeks after his arrival in Austin death took from him his wife, and he began, and ever after carried on his work under the grievous weight of this affliction. After a single year he was made Adjunct Professor, and in June, 1893, was pro- moted to the Associate Professorship. While returning from a summer ' s trip to Europe in September of that year he suffered from a sore throat which attacked him suddenly on the voyage. His symptoms growing worse and worse, he was forced to give up lecturing in the University, and, on December 9th, by the ad- vice of his physicians in Austin, he went to Baltimore for treat- ment. The disease proved to be tuberculosis in a fatal stage of development. After suffering with heroic patience, he died calmly, in the full possession of all his faculties to the last mo- ment, at eleven o ' clock on the night of February 2d, 1894, in the thirty-fourth year of his age. On Wednesday, February 7th, he was buried, according to his own wish, by the side of his wife in the cemetery of Austin, Texas. He leaves one living child, a daughter, nearly six years old. Although for but three short years in Texas, the influence of his life and work will be strong and enduring. His lectures in the University and at large in the State were a noble inspiration to high thinking and worthy living. He was an absolutely inde- fatigable and utterly self-denying worker for the University of Texas, and the results of his wisdom, his integrity of purpose and great energy of will are unalterably embodied in the fabric of her being and the trend of her growth. Although pre-emi- nent in the study of his special love, his mind was of the most catholic type and most symmetrically developed. In his view, the so-called conflict between true science and true religion was a psychological confusion. The great doctrine of Kant, which forever destroyed the antagonism between knowl- edge and faith was accepted by him as one of the fundamental doctrines of philosophy. The fabric of Professor Lefevre ' s philo- sophic system rested like a rock upon the doctrine of idealistic monism. His thought of God was instinct with the belief that God is love, and that Christ ' s life was its incarnation. Thus, in his faith, love was the sublime principle of all true religion and of every true life. In the universe of nature and the course of history he believed the thought of the divine mind to be ever evolving itself for man in presentative consciousness. In this way he blended in his philosophic creed all the tenderness, human sympathy and fundamental truth of the doctrine of Christ with the irrefragable logic of the idealistic metaphysics. Surveying the world ' s truth from such high vantage ground, the crudities and contradictions of less comprehensive philosophies were elimi- nated from his own, while all their essential verities and more en- nobling characteristics were wedded in the harmony of his philo- sophic thought. If he had lived to fulfil the purposes of his life — purposes thus forestalled by death — his brave, true spirit, his matchlessly ma- tured mind, and his resistless eloquence would have made him a great power for good in the world. But why dwell longer upon the mighty potentialities, the priceless value, of this life thus mysteriously cut off? To those who knew his noble manhood, it is gratuitous; to those who knew him not. it is too late. VII,I.IAM JAMES BATTLE. The subject of this sketch is a native of North Carolina. Af- ter a four years course at the University of his native State, he graduated in 1888. Having determined to devote himself to the classics, he pursued special studies in this line at Chapel Hill, taking the degrees A. M. (1889) and Ph. D. (1890), and offering as the ' subject of his Doctor ' s thesis, " Homeric Art. " During 1889-1890 he filled the position of Instructor in Latin. Leaving Chapel Hill, Dr. Battle studied three years at Harvard, receiving the degrees of A. M., and Ph. D. Last May, he was tendered a tutorship in Latin at the University of Chicago, and this posi- tion he resigned to come as Associate Professor of Greek to our own University. FREDERIC W. SIMONDS. The subject of this sketch was born July 3, 1853, at Charles- town, Massachusetts, but early in life his parents removed to Indiana, where he grew to manhood. He graduated at the high school at Richmond, Indiana, in 1871, and in the fall of the same year, entered Cornell University. Prof. Simonds gradu- ated at Cornell University with the degree of Bachelor of Science, in 1875, and upon opening of the next session was appointed In- structor in Geology and Paleontology, a position which he held for two years. Pursuing advanced studies, he received, in 1876, the degree of Master of Science. In 1877, he was elected Pro- fessor of Geology, Zoology and Botany in the University of North Carol ina, at Chapell Hill. In the same year he was mar- ried to Miss Wood, niece of Ezra Cornell, founder of Cornell Uni- versity. In 1879, having completed the prescribed course of study, he received the degree of Doctor of Philosophy (Ph. D.) from Syracuse University. On account of ill health, he resigned his professorship at Chapell Hill in 188 1, and spent the next few years on the Pacific coast. He returned to Ithaca, New York, in 1886, and was appointed Lecturer on Economic Geology in his alma mater for the year 1887, and in the same year he ac- cepted the professorship in Biology and Geology in the Arkansas Industrial University. Here Dr. Simonds remained two years and a half, when he resigned his professorship to accept the posi- tion of Associate Professor of Geology in the University of Texas. MRS. H. M. KIR BY. Mrs. Kirby, the daughter of Dr. R. J. Swearingen, was born at Mobile, Ala., January 17, 1837. With her parents she came to Texas in 1848, and resided at Chappell Hill. For some time she studied here, but went finally to Macon, Ga., where she graduated at the Wesleyan College. She returned to her home at Chappell Hill, where, in 1857, she was married to Mr. J. E. Kirby. He died in 1865, and Mrs. Kirby continued to reside at her home near Hempstead until 1875, when she came to Aus- tin. In 1884, she became associated with the University. JUDGE J. B. CLARK. Judge Clark was born in Greenville, North Carolina. When he was two years of age, his parents went to Mississippi to live. At the age of twelve he entered Franklin College, Tenn., where he graduated four years later at the head of his class. He en- tered Harvard in 1853 " took his degree in 1855 having been elected orator for his class. He next devoted himself to the study of law, and was admitted to the bar. Before entering upon the work of his profession, he went to Europe, where he stayed a little more than a year. Troubles at home called him back, and in 1861 he entered the Southern army, being in Barksdale, Mississippi, Brigade, i8th Regiment. At the close of the war he took up his abode in Jackson, Miss., where he practiced law for a time. He then went to Harrodsburg, Ky., where for five years he was editor of a paper. There he married Miss Florence Anderson, November 11, 1869. They came to Texas in 1875, and made their home in Bonham. By Gov. Ireland, Judge Clark was appointed a Regent of the University of Texas. He was then elected to the office of Proctor, came to Austin and assumed the duties of the position July i, 1885. ROBERT S. GOULD. Robert Simonton Gould was born in Iredell county, N. C, December i6, 1826. His father, a Presbyterian minister, died when he was seven years old, and his mother moved to Tusca- loosa, Ala., to educate himself and his younger brother at the State University. It is to the example and devotion of his Chris- tian mother that he attributes his success and honors of his later life. Robert Gould entered the University of Alabama at the age of fourteen and graduatad in 1844, in the beginning of his eighteenth year. In 1845, he was elected to, and served three and a half years, as Tutor of Mathematics in the University, at the same time studying law. In 1849 he was admitted to the bar and com- menced practice at Macon, Miss., in co-partnership with ex-Gov. Martin. He removed to Centerville, I eon county, Texas, in 1850, and in 1850, was elected and served two terms, declining re-election, as District Attorney of the 13th Judicial District. In 1855 he married Miss Serena Barnes, of Marengo county, Ala. He was a member of the Secession Convention of 1861, and was elected Judge of the 13th district, which office he resigned in the next year to enter the Confederate service with the rank of Captain. As Major of Gould ' s Battalion he fought in the battles of Mansfield, Pleasant Hill, and Jenkins Ferry, in which last battle he was wounded and had his horse killed under him. At the close of the war he returned to his law practice with the rank of Colonel, and was again elected Judge of his district, from which he was removed, during the reign of the carpet-bag- gers, by military authority. After two years of retirement he moved to Galveston in 1870, and in 1874 was appointed by Gov. Coke Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and was elected to the same position under the Constitution of 1876. In 1881, he was appointed Chief Justice of the State of Texas, and before his term of oflBce expired he was, without solicitation on his part, elected Professor in the Law Department in the University of Texas, at the head of which institution he now stands, and whose success and reputation as the grandest law school of the South is largely owing to the profound learning and untiring ef- fort of Robert S. Gould. In his case at least the ofi ce has al- ways sought the man. T. S. MII.I.KR. T. S. Miller was born at Jackson, La., some years ago. (As he is still unmarried, he does not want the date of his birth given.) He graduated at Centenary College, at that time a very noted institution of his native State and of which his father was Pres- ident. In 1870, the year of his graduation, he went to Harvard, in which institution he remained for six years; four years in the literary department, from which he graduated with the degree of A. B. He immediately entered the law department, from which he graduated in two years with the degree of LL. B. He came to Texas in 1877, located at Dallas, and was admitted to the bar. He practiced at first with Judge Barksdale, one of the leading lawyers there, and was then for six years junior partner of the firm of Shepard Miller, of which Hon. Seth Shepard was the senior partner. The firm was then for three years Leake, Shepard Miller. In June, 1893, on the appointment of Mr. Shepard to the Court of Appeals, D. C, by President Cleveland, Col. Henry, having resigned from the Supreme bench of Texas, took his place in the firm. It will be seen. Professor Miller has been for many years con- nected with the leading lawyers and statesmen of Texas, and his firm has for some years done perhaps the largest law practice in the State. Mr. Miller, with every opportunity and temptation and though repeatedly and persistently urged to run for office, has as repeat- edly and persistently refused. In 1893, he consented to take the place left vacant by the re- signation of Gov. Oran M. Roberts as Professor of Law in the University of Texas, which position he is in every way capaci- tated to hold. His practical experience and invaluable methods of instruction are of incalculable aid to this institution. Prof. Miller is without doubt the finest insurance lawyer in the State. He has both inside and outside of the clas s-room quite won the hearts of his students by his courtesy and frequent kindnesses to them. R. L. BATTS. R. L- Batts was born at Bastrop, Bastrop county, Texas, Nov. I, 1864. He graduated at the Bastrop College, and immediately entered the University of Texas. After completing the English and History course, he entered the law department of the same institution, graduating in 1886. He then practiced law in his native city, Bastrop, very successfully, until elected a member of the famous Twenty-third legislature. Later on he was appointed Assistant Attorney General, which office he resigned in Novem- ber, 1892, to accept a professorship in the law department of his alma mater, which position he now holds with credit to himself and the University. Although quite a young man. Professor Batts has by his clear, logical mind and deep-seated convictions won the respect and admiration of the bar and people of his native State. Young, vigorous, logical, capable, earnest, he is in every way fitted for the position he holds, and while this is his first year at teaching, the Board of Regents are to be congratulated on their success in securing one so eminently qualified to fill the respon- sible position he occupies. v ACADEMIC CLASSES, CLASS OF ' 94.

That will not do , for my fellow historian is forbidden under penalty of law " to call upon the immortal gods or in any wise to mention their names; " and I cannot, therefore, without taking an unfair advantage, be- gin in the above manner. To write a class-history — to relate the fortunes of the Senior Class Academic — lyet-me-see. The University of Texas stands in the same relation to the world at large, as the earth to the universe, viz: a microcosm in a macrocosm. As general history is the narrative of the fortunes of the human race, of the struggle against the " slings and ar- rows of outrageous fortune, " or to speak metaphysically, of the endeavor of man to realize the world of freedom in the world of circumstance, so the history of the Class of ' 94 of the Univer- sity of Texas is the story of their ceaseless warfare against a sea of troubles, the daily torture of the recitation, the torments of the term — examination, and the thousand special shocks which every professor has felt himself morally bound to inflict upon them: it is the tale of their final victory over adverse fate, and their development by this never-ending struggle for bare existence. It is, in fine, the story of the survival of the fittest. The ancient and mediaeval periods of the history of Ninety - Four have been before covered by Professor Edwin James, the Thucidides of class history, who by daring to penetrate with his piercins: mind into the darkest periods of primeval times, has made invaluable contributions, both to science and to his own glory — a service which will probably only be fully appreciated by future generations. It is our task, then, to endeavor, in our humble way, to write the " Outlines of Modern History, " the story of Ninety-Four during the Senior year. Our narrative begins with the return of the members of our class to the T. S. U. " Oh! what a change! " remarked the younger Hamlet, when, in the ides of October he walked with one of his friends at col- lege up the broad stairs to matriculate and to resume his Univer- sity labors, " What a change! " " Only three months ' vacation! But yesternight I was wandering in the land where the orange- blossoms blow, chatting with my beloved Ophelia, and now ? Oh! It is too, too hard! How rapidly the days of my youth have flitted by on golden wings! Why, methinks, Baron Von Woodenhead, it is but one brief month since in the Avenue, three years ago, mad with thirst (for water) I took an electric bell for a speaking-tube. Von Woodenhead was about to deliver a dis- quisition on the subjectivity and absolute relativity of space and time; but the words died on his lips, and he said, with faltering voice and quivering lip, " I wish I were at home! I want my mamma! " Conversing thus, they went in quest of their classmates who had grown so dear to them, for they had ' busted " in the same recitations, " flunked " on the same examinations, and many a time and oft, copied their essays from the same books. Re- joiced as they were when they found that the majority of their fellow-sufferers were again to be their comforters in time of dis- appointment in exemptions, and their deliverers from the host of mathematical myrmidons which were marshaled against them by the Texas University Taylor, their pleasure was soon turned to pain on finding that the gallant band had sustained irrepar- able losses. The valiant Leonidas had gone a long way to the island-valley of Avilion, where he is now healing him of his grievous wounds, and finding sweet forgetfulness of Texas Uni- versity experiences by bowsing drumlie German water. The Great King had withdrawn into the interior of the desert, thirty miles from Graham, having postponed indefinitely his next expe- dition to the centre of arts and eloquence. Such was the condition of our class upon returning to the Uni- versity. A short time was granted us to feel the whole measure of our miseries, and finally to glory in the vastness of our sor- rows. Soon, however, slowly but steadily, the toils of the new session began; and we forgot the pain of the separation from Greenville, Burnet, Fort Worth, Marshall and Rio Grande City, for our whole attention and mental powers were demanded in the preparation for the morrow, and we had no time to think of such paltry pains. We were compelled to read the countless notes appended to Shakespeare by Aldis Wright. We were ex- r pected to know the next morning, under penalty of zero, that in Antonio ' s words to Bassanio: " He repents not that he pays your debt, For, if the Jew do cut but deep enough, I ' ll pay it presently with all my heart, " a joke lies concealed, and that men in time of imminent danger haye a natural tendency to beguile the misery of the time by playing upon words; to be able to state that in the line, " The will of a living daughter is curbed by the will oi a dead father, ' ' Shakespeare has poetic license to make a pun which, if inflicted upon us by an ordinary mortal, would cause us to exclaim, " O ye gods, ye gods, must I endure all this! " When we were compelled to make preparations for one of those well-known monthly examinations, euphemistically termed a " written recitation " upon the lectures, we were wont, in the ex- tremity of our distress, to meet upon the scene of the coming catastrophe for the purpose of devising plans to anticipate the enemy ' s movements by trying our level best to spot him. There we restored the lecture which had been delivered three weeks before, by a careful and critical comparison and collation of the extant fragments, which consisted of snatches of words and sen- tences which some of us had been able to distinguish amidst the torrent which gushed past at a maddening speed, which fragments had been preserved in a note-book recently discovered in a trash bag under a pile of papers and periodicals. As might have been foreseen by the most far-sighted members of Ninety-Four, these philological and archaeological conferences, so highly con- ducive to the enlightenment of both parties concerned, were soon prohibited as contrary to the spirit of the University. However, it is wrong to suppose, from the incidents recounted, that the existence of Ninety-Four was one continuous night, un- broken by any ray of light. Far from it! As the life of the most wretched of human beings is not without its brighter mo- ments, so the history of the class of ' 94 is not without its age of prosperity. One of these glorious epochs is The Thanksgiving Dinner. The historian must be pardoned for not recounting the num- berless delicious dishes, or to speak more correctly, elegayit eat- ables, that greeted us as we entered B. Hall. He is equally at a loss to make an assertion as to the remainder. He dimly remem- bers that some aniline-colored water was served, doubtless for the purpose of preparing us for the reception of toasts. These toasts had one common characteristic; they had not been labor- iously prepared; they were not decorated with fruits and flowers, but they sprang directly from the heart, thus attaining a majes- tic simplicity. The President said that he agr-r-r-eed most hear-r-r-tily with his predecessor. He stated that he had a desire to say more, but that it was har-r-r-der than to dr-r-r-aw a tr-r-r i- angle, for he lacked the r-r-right wor-r-r-d. His successor agreed with him also. But to make a long story short, the dinner was a howling success, and all said that it was awful nice. At lasj: the holidays came. Prince Rudolph made a desperate attempt — he went calling. " What are you going to do, Lesbia, after you have completed your course? Two roads are open to women. Are you going to teach? " " Oh, no! " cried his friend, " that is awful ! " " There is but one alternative, " responded the prince, eagerly, " marriage. " " If that is the case, I should prefer the former! " she replied, without a moment ' s deliberation. He never called again. Miss Wakefield worked arduously at her new novel: " Perfor- ated Pete, or the Punisher of the Prairie Pirates. " The work, which is now completed, is sold by subscription — edition limited to five hundred copies. One of the most attractive features of the work is that each chapter is introduced by a verse selected from the poems of Corina and Sappho. Prince Albert is sole agent, and can be found at all times in his wonted place near Mrs. Kir- by ' s room. St. Thomas Aquinas was very forlorn during the holidays. In order to wear away the weary time, he devoted himself to the science of language, and more particularly to the philosophy and significance of names. St. Thomas came to the conclusion that all names can be traced back to some original meaning. Thus be found that the name of a friend of his is a diminutive form of Garza, by virtue of the suffix ia, which name meant in primeval times water-fowl; and he contends, therefore, that his friend ' s name signifies a species of small water-fowl. V The historian feels confident in stating that all were glad to resume their college-work. When unoccupied by some worthy- aim, man soon becomes a dead weight both to himself and to others. Yet man cannot always work; he must also play. Real- izing the philosophical significance of man ' s desire for play, Ninety-Four accompanied the heroes of Dallas to San Antonio, and showed to the inhabitants of the Alamo City what kind of people we are that win by 34 to o. And thus Ninety-Four toils on. Our days at the University have, with few exceptions, been very, very happy, and the only sorrow that we feel is that the time draws near when we must part, and each take up the struggle with the rough world with- out the aid and loving sympathy of his companions. How we will succeed in that battle, it is the duty of the Prophet to fore- tell. The Historian can only give counsel, and express the hope that we may, through all our days, keep in mind the motto sug- gested by our Ex-president: ' ' ' Homo sum; nil humanum a me alienum puto ' ' and thus cherish the spirit of love, of tolerance and cosmopoli- tanism. Class Poem. Now rise, my Muse, on lifted pinions soar, And sing, all hail to the class of ' 94. When first we ' gan to climb the rugged steep, Though sick we were at heart And weak to lend a part In searching for the hidden treasure heap. Then stranger eyes a sweet encouragment, A silent sympathy And feeling brotherly, In kindly glance to stranger eyes had sent. At last we see the shining goal anear, And panting, on we press, With hopeful, heaving breast. Joyful in our happy haven ' s close appear. A Now full of fond and friendly interest, We turn with glancing smile And charm the laboring while With common joys and common hopes of rest. And comrades, hand in hand, upon the shifting sand, Straining the eyes to see Into the dim country. Fearless, with youthful vigor now we stand. Into the shadow-land beckons the Beauty sprite, And staunch, unarmed Truth And Faith, a fearless youth. Challenge the giants dark to deadly fight. Proudly, our arms received, we join Apollo ' s baud. Ready the chains to break That darkest Erebus make Together take we all a gallant stand. The past now lies behind, the future is anear, But gemmed and flashing fair And redolent the air With sweetest memory — the fading year. O, hold it while we may— the fleeting, loved to-day! And far in meadows roam Where flowers wild have grown To smile a benediction on the way. And oft, O, oft, when eyes that now look bright And gleaming with youth ' s fire. Aflame with Hope ' s desire. Give glints and sparks of heavens purest light; When eyes all dim have grown and hearts subdued, And dark and dead the flame That once from embers came The gay sunlight for lustre might have wooed; When other idols. Time ' s relentless hold (O chill the icy touch!) Shatters, and ruins much That tenderly with care our hearts enfold; O, may he spare, unharmed and ever pure, The deity we love And leave enthroned above Sweet memory of college-friendship true! And once, once more while we together stand, With voices raised we ' ll sing Until the heavens ring Of comrade — love— now clasping hand in hand. O, on the years to come, O, on the j-ears gone by. May Love ' s enduring beam Cast forth a warming gleam Of Hope and Faith and friendly Sympathy! Then hail, all hail to the class of ' 94, For sweet love ' s sake that each to other bore!

In that world which lies so close to this busy, bustling, work-day world, that by shutting the eyes one can enter its charmed precincts, no miracle asto i- ishes. Mountains are leveled in a moment; difficulties vanish like a dissolving view; the brain works without weariness; the mind composes without effort; divine melodies float in the very, atmosphere, and in that rosy light, which was never yet on land or sea, the old throw off " the burthen of years as a wintry gar- ment; the dead become alive without even an opaque partition of air between them and us who call ourselves the living. Quite forlorn, with the weight of an added responsibility which I had unwillingly assumed, I passed into this shadow- land to be soothed, refreshed and recreated. Like gangland, in his Vision of Piers, the Plowman: " I was very forwandred and went me to reste Under a brode banke bi a borne ' s side, And as I lay and lened and loked in the wateres, I slombred in a sl pyng it sweyved so merye. Then gan I to meten a merveilouse swevene. That I was in a wildernesse wist I never where. As I bihelde into the est an hiegh to the Sonne, I seigh a toure on a toft trielich ymaked, I depe dale binethe !« A faire fielde ful of folke fonde I there bytwene. " In the character of these folk my vision differed from that of the Plowman, for instead of the rout of pardoneres, sompnoures, friars, websteres, and other antique gentry, on the slope of the verdant hill. I saw companies of gallant youths and fair maidens drawn up in line with banners waving, each with its own device. White tents nestled among the trees, and the castle which this army was besieging, rose in lofty grandeur on the highest hill. The first company near the bottom of the hill, with unthinned ranks and unquenched enthusiasm, raised on high a noble ban- ner of white and green, emblems of purity and youth. Evi- dently they were new recruits, and viewed with wonder the ma- neuvres of the more thoroughly disciplined troops above them. Noble as was this band, my attention was drawn from them to the line formed in front of them, and further up the heights. It was marked by the martial dignity with which the column moved, their commanding appearance, and the colors of gold and blue. The entire band wore the queerest sort of helmets that soldiers ever donned, a four-cornered affair with a tassel dangling in the left eye, and which, as a general thing, was set at right angles with the ear. I wondered at this jaunty head-piece, which af- forded no protection from sun or wind; and was still more aston- ished when I saw that the company next in advance also wore the same ornament, differing only in the figures which marked the front of each helmet. Approaching nearer I distinguished the blazon of ' 95. From the standard of this gallant company flashed the brilliant old-rose and green, while in the centre of the banner shone like a star the motto, Arisiene. By this time I was nearly up the hill, and at the top beheld the last company, waving gallantly a flag of gold and black. Victory was written in every face. They were near the goal of their hope and their endeavor. The hill, so steep in many places, so rugged in many others, had been climbed; the prize was at hand. The generals had been reviewing this company; the prancing chargers were still foaming, and the color-bearer for the whole army was dashing back and forth, waving high above all the Old Gold and White, emblazoned with the motto: Non si7ie pulvere palma. The bugles sounded, the banners waved, and on the startled air rose the battle-cry: ' Hooray, hooray, Hullabaloo. " As this yell sounded down the whole army, line after line, waking the echoes far and near, the castle doors flew open, dis- closing several arches raised in triumphal fashion, the first in- scribed Cum laude, the second Cum Magna laiide. Behind these was an elevated dais, upon which was seated the Illustres and the Illustrissimi, bearing in their hands palm branches and crowns of laurel. When the company, ' 94, saw this glorious sight, their war- cry rose in sonorous tones: " Roar, bray, roar. Cap and gown. On the town. Class of ' 94. " And ' 95 chimed in with full chorus: " Rah, rah, rah, Rah, rah, ru, ' 95- ' 95. T. S. U. " My ears were still vibrating, my head dizzy with this " con- cord of sweet sounds, " when there was a movement in my direc- tion on the part of the inspecting officers. " Ninety-five, " said the general in command, " is one of the best companies in the service. This is the time for inspection. Will you be with us? " Seeing the question was addressed to me, I gladly accepted the invitation. The company forward, their armor bright, their bayonets gleaming. They had been nearly three years enlisted Manj battles had been fought, many victories won. I wondered how many who had started, all radiant with hope, had fallen by the way. Had any deserted? Some had been absent on fur- lough, and one had fought his last battle, and was sweetly sleep- ing the sleep God giveth his beloved. It was a gallant company. In the face of each was written eager expectancy, and the longing hope for a sign of praise from the general. There were some, both youths and maidens, whose arms outshone the rest; on whose whole equipment there was no blemish. Always ready to obey, striving for promotion, for honors and rewards at the close of the fight, these would surely be on the roll, proudly written, the best. In other faces I read another story. They had not been so eager in the fray, they had taken time to sing a song, to breathe a prayer, to lend a helping hand to a discouraged comrade, to give a friendly smile to those in the lower ranks, always oblig- ing, always friendly, always smiling. These were the ones who had rooted themselves in the heart of the company. And what shall be their reward? A host of friends, and a crown of love ' s own weaving. And so I thought these youths and maidens, striving for knowledge, and the prizes it awards, are training for a greater contest yet to come, in the great battle of life. Here they stand together, inspired by each other ' s hope and courage, with the banner of rose and green floating proudly above them, with its inspiring inscription. Who shall doubt that ' 95 is the best, and that its members will always be the same, when they meet new foes, on scattered fields, face to face, and alone! CLASS OF ' 96.

History of Ninety-Six. " Is my name written there? " Rang out through the air When September ' s piercing sun Rose fatally on many a one. Battles have been fought, victories have been won. We, the Class of ' 96, are in some degree victors. For we are the repre- sentatives of that band that on the morning of September 27, 1892, marching to meet our fate, while on every side lay our un- fortunate comrades, some busted, some weltering in their own tears. To picture the successive struggles, mingled with sorrow and joy, and to represent to the world this class in its true life is the task of the historian. When time had moved his dial round its regular course, and summer fragrant with its flowers was ushered in, it was an- nounced to us, " Ye have been faithful in your year ' s work, enter ye into the joys of the Sophomore Class. " Oh! with what a wel- come was that sentence greeted, and we appreciated the op- portunity, yea, even to acceptance. For we were rejoiced to know that we had wrestled for the last time with " x " and " g, " and that the time had come when no more " cosine x " would sound in our ears. Realizing that " there is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at the flood leads on to fortune, " we laid down the burdens of the Freshman year and assumed the com- manding air and the lordly dignity that our position as Sophs, deserves. After a year of hard work, having bidden each other good-bye, we returned to our homes to spend the vacation, there to " dream of battle fields no more. " We laid aside our sober thoughts, should such a name be applied to them, and in various amuse- ments, and in multitudinous ways enjoyed the long summer days. At the eve of vacation, when we had " drunk our fill of pleasures, " and had enjoyed our freedom for a time, duty called us to our work once more. Heeding this call, we bade our friends adieu and left for the University. Upon our return, in accordance with true Texan hospitality, we were banqueted in " Hall Hevit. " Here amid the gay festivi- ties, which consisted of music (chin-music), refreshments (one- third for a full course), and a profusion of gift-giving (handing in essays), the youth of Texas chivalry stood without a peer. This feast was of short duration, for a dragon seizes us unex- i)ectedly (impromptu examinations). Having imbibed deeply of tHese pleasures, we were attacked by Grendel (fall examinations), w iosaid: " Cease these pleasures, render unto me an account, and should your account not be correct in every way, should you add a little, or take away the smallest particle from the true account, you and yours shall be consigned to the flames. " Heed- ing this command, each rendered an account as best he could, and with the break of morning (New Year), each took his de- parture feeling that he had been edified and more than profited by the time spent in such a way. But now a word concerning the " Sophomore Class Organiza- tion, " for to leave this out would defeat the whole plan and our history would be incomplete. After effecting a permanent or- ganization, the class selected its officers. The choice was a wise one, for all the officers have spared nothing in their earnest, per- sistent labor for the benefit of all. Ever have the meetings been well attended, and an ardent spirit of friendship has constantly prevailed. At times, the organization was a scene of laughter, at others, a gush of eloquence. Such it was during the discus- sion of a class cap, and after many meetings the " Oxford " was chosen, and our voices rose in unison for the class colors, old gold and blue. Our constitution is a noble document. Among the many wise provisions contained therein, one especially should be mentioned, viz: that the class shall have an annual banquet. But this pro- vision does not mean that we have only one " blow-out " annually, for the class soon after its organization was tendered a re- ception at the home of Mrs. Dill. To say that the affair was a most pleasant one would in no degree express it, for the girls tripping through the. rooms sounded like the rustle of angel ' s wings, and the boys truly imagined themselves feast- ing in the abode of the celestials. But alas! too soon the sink- ing stars summoned sleep, and as Phoebus was lighting the east- ern horizon with his fiery chariot, we retraced our steps home- ward, leaving behind our broken hearts and noble aspirations. It is with a deep sense of regret that the historian cannot com- pile the whole history of the from the Freshman through the Senior year. But the task will devolve upon my successor, who doubtless will paint the picture in glowing colors, language adequate to the deed. But ere many times the seasons shall have run their courses, the happy school days of the present shall oe numbered among the things of the past. When fortune shall have scattered us from the coasts of the At lantic to the moun- tains of the West, there will remain only the pleasant memories of those eventful days when we were gathered together under one roof. Then, fellow-schoolmates, we shall realize that there is a life beyond school life, a history beyond school history. What, oh, what will it be? A rock foundation has been laid, and since we are the architects of our own characters, and know- ing each member of the class, as the historian thinks he does, he dare to predict for each of them respect, honor, and glory in the manifold vocations of life. He expects to see them in a loyal band upon the highway of life; like unto pilgrims to Mecca, sur- mounting the hills of perseverance, trodding serenely through the thistles of the valley, eventually standing on some command- ing height from which they can view the landscape o ' er. To the Class of ' 96. It must have been the moaning of the wind That so with gloom oppressed my mind, And made the fire-Hght shadows on the wall To seem to me the phantom forms of all My failures; then I thought my own drear state Was like some coats that, smouldering in the grate, Burned black, whilst all around were glowing. Bright The flames wreathed ' round, and by their searing might The out-side of those blackened coals did slow Consume; as when, I thought, misfortune so With direful flame enwraps our own poor lives, And sears away ' til naught of worth survives. Then from the coal ' s-heart was revealed A light which there had glowed concealed; And like a flash of truth, dispelling gloom, Its lambent radiance diffused throughout the room; I felt it was the image of a soul Lit-up with truth the failure of its past Had taught; and, yielding to the fierce control Of testing flame, ennobled was at last.

To the writer the history of so young an organization is a peculiar task, if not a hard one. To write a life sketch of a little child, I think, would be a similar task. In neither are there any tri- umphs to picture, or defeats to ( :riticise. There is no eulogy to pronounce, no invective to answer. It is not, however, long life nor ostensive conduct that furnishes substance for history. Cas- abianca evinced a courage and a fortitude which history is proud to record, though he achieved no brilliant exploit and perished at thirteen. A history of a living institution or organization V J should leave an idea of what such institution or organization really is. If then, in this brief sketch, I succeed in presenting a correct impression of what the class of ' 97 really is, as respects its members, its working, and its standing, I shall feel that my task is well done. On September 27, 1893, something over one hundred brave and unswerving hearts launched their ships on a sea of university troubles. The class of ' 97 are pioneers. Whatever credit is due to those who dare to stand where others have fallen, is due to the class of ' 97. It was until recently a conceded fact that when a class of the University of Texas organized themselves into a body in their beginning year, they had as well write " Ichabod " on their constitution. Indeed, failure has been the fortune of those pre- ceding the class of ' 97 who have dared to organize in their be- ginning year. And failure, it was predicted, would be the re- ward of the class of ' 97. But amid doubt and discouragement, with failure for their example and ridicule for their persuasion, they gathered confidence and marched to battle with an un- faltering step; and success has crowned their ejQforts. It was in November that the class met, in their philosophy room, to organize. Appropriate committees were appointed, and in due time a constitution was adopted and ofl cers elected. If it is well to cultivate friendship, then this organization is right in design and successful in procedure. The fifteen min- utes social intermission provided by the constitution has bound many hearts with a common cord. At an early meeting in the history of the class of ' 97, white and gree n were adopted as appropriate for class colors. Upon what basis the selection was made, is uncertain. On Thanksgiving day, the class enjoyed a pleasant reception at the home of Mrs. Kirby. It was a delightful occasion, and the evening introduced sounds and scenes that became dear to the hearts of the class of ' 97. It was near the first of December when the class met to hear the report of a committee to create a treasury. This report called forth some of the vim and earnestness which characterize the members of the class. It interested the girls; it excited the boys. " It brought V and W almost as close together in the philosophy room as they are in the alphabet. It was finally adopted, how- ever, and all agreed that the girls should be entitled to full privileges, and that they should not be prohibited from contrib- uting to the treasury funds. The night of the i6th of December is memorable in the brief career of the class. I am sure every member will quickly revert to the occasion, and do so with pleasure. It was due to the courtesy and active interest of the much esteemed young ladies that the class was favored with a second reception at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick. The affair was a grand success. Re- freshments, an appropriate oration, some choice recitations, a se- lect reading, and sweet music, contributed to the success of the occasion. The class looks forward with great anticipation to another re- ception, promised by Mrs. Montelin. This, it will be remem- bered, is the third reception given to the class, and the session is scarcely half gone. The class has been criticised by some for not adhering more strictly to the example set by higher classes. The criticism is rather a commendation, though it was not intended as such. True the class did not adopt a cap; it did not elect a young lady president. It elects officers every term. This action was taken not to depart from the policy of the higher classes, but to sup- port its own policy. The members of the class of ' 97 are not altogether imitators. They have convictions of their own, and they support ' them with courage. In victory or in defeat, in weakness or in strength, they stand fast by the dictates of their conscience and defy the force of ridicule. The class of ' 97, is well represented beyond its own organiza- tion. It has furnished a vice-president and a secretary for the Rusk society, and a secretary for the Athenaeum. Several of its members appeared on the programme of the public meeting of the Ashbel. It has ardent workers in the Y. M. C. A. and the Y. W. C. A. It has filled three of the most important posts in the ' ' Varsity " foot-ball team. For its efforts at organizing, the class feels amply recompensed. The members appreciate their situation, aud take courage in the sentiment: " Stand firm, brave class of ' 97. Every trial you overcome now, every obstacle you remove, every victory you win and every trophy you wear will help you on to success, and deepen the meaning and brighten the luster of the crown that awaits you in brighter and broader fields. " You do not, now, rank so splendidly as your grave and rever- end seniors; but yours will be the glory in the great battle of life. For ' many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first. " V r LAW CLASSES. SENIOR LAW CLASS OF ' 94, YEi.i,: We Roar! We Roar! C01.ORS: — Black and Gold. Officers.

I shall endeavor, with some large octave-syllabled words, real elegant high-sounding words, culled with great care and delib- eration from the dictionary, the big unabridged dictionary, and the encyclopedia, to impress on passive paper the glowing great- nesses of the lyaw Class of ninety-four. It is customary in all articles of this kind for the historian to ascend in growing elo- quence on the fleet-winged Pegasus of his tireless rhodomontade to the heights of Parnassus or Olympus, or wherever the gods and muses are popularly supposed to reside, and there in several pages of turgid effort to threaten or invoke, as the case may be, until having exhausted the supply of adjectives, or at least those of the superlative degree, they are compelled to descend to mother earth with a ' dull sickening thud " (stereotyped newspaper phrase) or to leave their readers in a state of misty uncertainty as to whether they ever got down or not. Denied by the class by solemn vote in conference assembled this usual courtesy, I shall have to perpetrate my adjectives on them, a terrible but just vengeance. It is with reverence that we should approach this conglomera- tion of heroes, this concatenation of brains, this congestion of genius that composes the class of ' 94. This company of arch- angels who did not hesitate to intimidate the I egislature, to coerce the Board of Regents, and to command the Faculty. In this body of embryonic statesmen and veteran politicians, behold the instigator and the champion of every reform, from the reduc- tion of the entrance fees, to the abolition of the entire system of grading of the University. This parliament that combines in itself the functions and powers of the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial, and all rights and privileges appertaining thereunto to be so held by them aud their heirs and assigns forever non com- pos mentis keno e pluribus unum go braugh. (It is customary to insert foreign phrases in pieces of this kind, and I am following custom; it is not necessary that I or anybody else should know what they mean, but they have to be there to give a classical appearance.) It is said that " In those old days to be a Roman was greater than to be a king, " and yet I cannot believe that to be a Roman was greater than to be a member of this body politic, whose softest breath is pregnant with prophecy and whose lightest word is treasured as history. To write their history is not the work of a contemporary, but it shall in the future be graven on the hearts and emblazoned in the minds of their country men. They need no eulogy at my hands (customary phrase), but they shall have one, nevertheless, if the superlatives hold out. L Ooking at this class, we behold the living exposition of the eternal fitness of things. Dazzled by their glory, let the world bow down in reverential awe and acknowledge its masters. All things at last are plain, nothing is created without a purpose. Things inexplicable and seemingly useless in themselves, ' when viewed from the standpoint of the historian, fit together as the bricks in an edifice, and all events tend to the accomplishment of some great object. Not in vain was the world created, not in vain was Adam expelled from the garden, not in vain have wars been waged, empires fallen, kingdoms flourished, a new world been discovered, people driven from home on account of religious persecution, states settled and cities founded. I ooking with the eye of the present through the telescope of the past, the great plan of the universe is made apparent; human events reached their culminating point in the founding of the University of Texas, and the University of Texas has reached its climax in the Law Class of ninety-four. The members of that class stand upon the apex of the mighty pyramid of the events of the world, and with undazzled eyes look forward into a future without a cloud and without a horizon. Refusing even to have their names connected with the fabled gods, they stand omnipotent, rejoicing in their intellectual superiority, at once the heroes and the rulers of the world. They stand erect in conscious power, looking with disdainful eye alike on the plodding Academic students and the verdant Juniors, with perhaps a glance of contemptuous pity on those sordid, cloddish minds who cannot appreciate their unut- terable superiority. They stand with the attribute of demi-gods almost deified, " and seem to feel Divinity within them breeding wings with which to spurn the earth. " This life can contain no greater splendor, and heaven itself can add nothing to their glory save to make it eternal. [Author ' s Note. — It was suggested that this effusion be pub- lished with a self-pronouncing glossary for the benefit of the Academic students, but owing to lack of space the suggestion was not followed. I would also have liked to use the word idiosyncracy , but could find no place for it. It is a good word and I hated to leave it out.] V J JUNIOR LAW CLASS OF ' 95. Officers. Bibb Graves President W.

History of Law Class of ' 95, As history is supposed to be a record of events, one would naturally expect to view the acts of the Law Class of ' 95 by read- ing its history. But when we take into consideration the fact that the Class has been in existence as such for a few short months only, we hardly expect one to be able to record many events that redound to its glory or that will move nations or change the destinies of empires; yet there are some incidents connected with its history, which are of grave importance. It was the Junior Law Class that made the initiative movement in regard to the abolition of the grading system of the University. The class observed, at various and sundry times, after some lead- ing light had sent its rays to pierce the mysteries of the subject then under consideration, that the face of the professor was clouded, and he seemed lost in meditation. On investigating the cause of this serious air, or demeanor, it found him very much perplexed in endeavoring to coin a character by which the nu- merical value of the recitation could be properly expressed. As soon as it learned the cause of his bewilderment, the Class ex- hibited its usual skill and genius, came to his relief, suggested it be called " satisfactory, " and that he let it pass. As the history of individuals goes to make up the history of nations, so the history . ' of individual members constitutes the story of the Class. Many of its members are distinguished men of State. All have at some time been members of the " house of representatives. " Some made themselves famous by their zeal- ous work, and through their influence many bills were passed and became laws, while others were no less noted for the number of bills introduced, all of which were doomed to die an ignomin- ious death in the hands of the committee. The already accumulated store of legal lore possessed by the Class enables its members to devote much of their otherwise val- uable time to the sport of foot-ball. Here, as in the class-room, its members characterize themselves by their decorous conduct and in their proficiency in all rules pertaining to the game. Many virtues has this Class, which cannot be described in such a way that the reader could appreciate and fully compre- hend their value. Those who know the Class best, love and re- spect it most. It is ever faithful to duty, always ready to dis- charge any obligation which may devolve upon it as a class. It It meets with pleasure the intricacies of law, and seems to be able, by the expenditure of proper mental exercise, to master the most diflScult principles, and grasp with vigor any line of reason- ing, though of the most abstruse character. It is pure and noble in thought, never for an instant allowing its mind to feed upon unholy deed or action. It has a high ideal. It looks beyond the laws of man to laws of equity and justice, proclaimed and legislated by one of Infinite Wisdom and Good- ness. It is indifferent to the petty storms and struggles of life, but moves majestically onward, fulfilling its place as a Junior, and laying well the foundation upon which to erect its legal ed- ifice.

While the gifted poet was yet in the agonies of composition, the boarding-house keepers of Austin learned of this effort to heap ridicule upon them, and shortly afterwards the Freshman, whose production the above is, mysteriously disappeared, prob- ably a victim to the wrath of the traduced. TO I walked into the bright green fields, And cold it was to me; I felt no warmth that sunlight yields, For I was lacking thee. I feasted late in banquet halls, Loathsome it was to me; Found no sweet peace in kingly walls. For I was lacking thee. A Fitting Finale . fe. , t, T " " rHB - ' --=-- s- V - I drank long draughts of crystal wine, No cheer gave it to me; Cold flowed it ' bout this heart of mine, For I was lacking thee. O Heavens, smile howe ' er so gay, Saddened ye seem to me; And clouded all the sky with gray When I am lacking thee. O heart and eyes, my true love hail. And welcome him to me. For fields and wine and heavens fail When I am lacking thee. B. D. TO HER NOSK. Oft love ' s inspired by taper fingers Or damask cheeks of softest rose. But now no hesitation lingers Since I have seen her little nose. It has a skyward aspiration, A sort of gentle retrousse Too happ5 ' nose in such relation. From such a mouth to turn away. Bright, sunny curls, a simple cunning, Where love ' s own signal surely glows, A smile with life and mirth o ' er running All emphasize that little nose. A merry glance that gaily flashes, A snowy neck, a supple form, Cerulean eyes with golden lashes, Might make a hermit ' s fancy warm. I ' ve been to call and she was gracious. My suit she ' ll surely not rebuff " , (Her old papa I think ' s suspicious, His general air is rude enough.) Her dear mama is quite propitious, And now too soon I can ' t propose, And make my own that dear, delicious, Delightful, charming little nose. WHICH. In the fragrant haycocks hidden, First I saw the pretty lass; Golden haired and cherry lipped, Truant in the meadow grass. Home she won ' t go to be chidden, Put to sums, or maybe whipped; Though most urgently she ' s bidden By maternal calls: ' You, Mary Ann!! " Fresh from Vassar school the maiden, Marianne is now her name; But her eyes are just as sweet, And her face is just the same Spite of mind with learning laden. Wisdom here and beauty meet. So of further change I am afraid in Case I hasten not To Marry Anne. UNDER THE MISTLETOE. The mistletoe ' s white berries shone, In the lamplight, soft and mellow. And a youth and maiden sat alone, As he of his love did tell her. She sat beneath the mistletoe. Her red lips with honey laden; But the youth, he let his chances go, For he feared to offend the maiden. J Ah, foolish lover! not to know That maids are fond of kisses, And that beneath the mistletoe A lover ' s dearest bliss is. [appendix.] The simple youth did make me sad, And my heart was filled with pity. But his bashfulness was not so bad As what it called forth — my ditty. FABLES. Whilst studying the Corpus Juris Civilis of the great and be- loved Justinian, at Mantua, in the fifty-third year of the fifteenth century of our era, I, together with divers worshipers of Bacchus, fell in with a man of reverend years, of noble mien, from Byzantium. During the lesser hours of that sacred night, our blood did curdle at his horrid tales of Seljukians, but near dawn he did delight our ears with tales of Athenian days. " And verily, " said he, " the telling of fables and the subsequent inference of morals therefrom, has become a pastime of wondrous interest to those dwelling in the shade of Acropolis. ' It is with difficult} ' that I remember one told by my friend Dioscorides, not of Ealicarnassus. ' Kai-gar, ' began my friend, ' it was whilst I used the midnight oil at Alexandria that I was called before the great Simonides, he who tells us of the earth and what therein is, and one of the interrogatories propounded on that fatal day hath worried me, yea, a heap. ' When, ' ran my interlocutor, ' was gold first discovered in California? Dios- corides told me that this fable teaches that he who seeks the secrets of the rock-god under the leadership of the loved Simon- ides is not supposed to be erudite, versed in geological ore, but to be a perambulating gazetteer, loaded down with useless dates and the names or all places even unto the borders of the Libyan desert. " " In my own time. " continued the Greek, " I was once at_Sala- manca, in the days of the good Caliph, Al Tararum, seeking L knowledge regarding methods of teaching, even in like manner as Rice has been doing for the Forimi. I entered the room of the revered Alexander d ' Scotia, who was telling his disciples of the wonders of acoustics. I noticed that near unto him sat those of the feminine gender, and divers few of the opposite. Their eyes were bright, and they did drink of his words as oxen do of water during the heated months of summer. But on benches in the more distant part of the room sat men of dull eyes and little in- tellect. I meditated deeply, ultimately querying Alexander as to whom these dull ones were, and he said, " They are the un- sophisticated and unsound, those, verily, who will not receive exemptions at the end of the term. ' The moral of this fable is coached in Alexander ' s own word ' s, namely that, ' the standing of the student is inversely proportional to the distance of the student to the desk of the professor. ' " When he had finished we marvelled at his wisdom, and quaf- fing the flowing bowl, besought him to tell us another. " Of a verity, " replied the sage, " ye are like unto the asses. Ye eat until the crib is emptied, and then bray for more. But, as one who loveth ye, I will try to do even more. I am fain reminded of a fable which I heard from the lips of Pharecydes of Syras. ' Yea, ' saith Pharecydes, ' it was whilst I labored at the temple of Jupiter Ammon, in lower Egypt, that one came near who said he was Emcejunior from Emorigeorgia. He waved aloft a papyrus on which he said was writ the finest sentence in our liquid, lisp- ing language. He showed it me, and thus I read: ' When a man is light, swift, poetic, philosophic, parabolic, idealiotic, misan- thropic, diabolic, psychologic, paregoric, he is better dead! ' Ho! exclaimed I, ' there is no meaning herel ' ' Meaning! ' cried Emcejunior, ' who careth for the meaning? ' Tis the comma I am after. See how pretty they are, like a row of sentinels. Every comma in its place gives the sentence strength and grace. ' The moral of this fable is that under the greatest rhetorician Emceju- nior a man will receive praise for many pages of unmeaning words should his commas be cunningly made and rightly placed. ' ' As the glorious sun rose o ' r the Adriatic we bade our friend fare- well, feeling in our hearts that the man was wondrous wise. THE RISKY RINK. Let us go unto the rink, Risky rink, Where, amidst the skaters ' clatter, Our anatomies we batter, x ll for twenty -five in chink. Till before our eyes astonished Forty thousand little stars do dance and blink. How they twinkle, twinkle twinkle, And the atmosphere o ' ersprinkle, At the rink, rink, rink, Rink, rink; How they twinkle at the rink. See the masher of the rink. Don ' t stare at his rig tremendous Or he ' ll style you " vewy wude. " It is neither man nor woman. It is neither brute nor human — It ' s a dude. This rink-haunting, gorgeous part-in " Cweatchah " is a dude; Is a dude, dude, dude, Dude, dude; This rink-haunting " Cweatchah " is a dude. See the fellow with his girl ! How they huggle, huggle, hug; While in and out the crowd they deftly steer; And without, in bower shady, Hear the guggle, guggle, gug. Of the weary soul imbibing beer; Of the beer, beer, beer, Beer, beer; Hear the guggle Of the beer. AS LOVERS MEET. I dreamt along the voyage of the day, In fancy stood beside her at the door, I framed the words of greeting I would say, With care I conned the phrases o ' er and o ' er. We plow the bay and board the crowded pier — Now, driver, haste, I see the well-known street, How leaps my pulse, and as the horses near, My heart beats faster than their flying feet. She stands beside me, maiden fair and leal, With love-lit eyes and fragrant silken hair. Oh, chosen words, no use of your appeal, I clasp her to my heart and hold her there. G. B. P. TO THE MOCKING BIRD. The glad wild notes that fill the throat, And to my, ear are borne Come as the words of whispered love, To cheer my heart forlorn. They cheer me in the lonely night. When death, and silence reign, And drive those monsters from my heart. Where they so oft have lain. They bring me back to hope and peace, I thought long since had fled, Back from the tomb, to life and joy — Back from the lonely dead. From thy full heart the sweet tones come. Come streaming through my soul, Laving with the softest melody The tide-like backward roll. Oh could I thus in song outpour All that my heart does feel, In endless numbers I would sing. The world ' s sad heart to heal. THE POET. " In the golden palace, Sunlight floods the halls, Showing priceless pictures Gemming marble walls, Glasses from Venetia Paint their splendor o ' er " — Wrote the poet crouching On the barren floor ! " In the golden palace Noble comp ' ny staj s. Cavaliers in velvet, Dames in silk and stays. Gold and jewels shining Kiss each ivory throat " — Wrote the poet shivering Without fire or coat, " In the golden palace They hold goodly cheer; Pheasant, trout and turtle On the board appear. Nectar wines are flowing Perfumed, strong and sweet " — So wrote the poet, starving For a crumb to eat. " In the golden palace Meet the loving twain. And their love knows nothing That ' s akin to pain. Handsome he — and wealthy, Sweet and true the maid ! — Wrote the poet, heart-broke, Whom his love betrayed. " In the golden palace lyife is very fair, Joy and purest pleasure Breathe a fragrance there! In the golden place, Ah! ' Tis good to bide! " — Wrote the poet smiling, Smiling as he died. TO I- H. R. R. H. Can you tell me why I love you! I ' d really like to know. ' Tis not because your eyes are blue, Your brow as white as snow, ' Tis not because you are so sweet, ' Tis not because you dress so neat, I love you — I love you, Why? I really do not know. I know you are an angel, Tho ' I know you have no wings. I know your tongue is very sweet, Altho ' it often stings. Your smile to me is sweetest bliss. There ' s heavens ' s rapture in your kiss. I love you — I love you, Why? I really do not know. If you e ' er find out this secret, Will you tell me why I love you better than all else. And for my love would die? Will you tell me why you are my life? And will be my little wife? I love you — I love you, Why? I really do not know. " Spike. " COMPANION-PIKCE TO ROBERT BURNS ' A MAN FOR A ' THAT.

V_ THE FOOT-BALIv GAME. At midnight, in the sleeping car, The Dallas team dreamed of the hour When Varsity boys with bruis ' d heads bent Should tremble at their power. In dreams, through town and state they bore The trophies of the conqueror; In dreams their shout of triumph heard; Then heard great crowds approving sing. And cheer on cheer make heaven ring, So wild their hopes and high of wing Their very souls were stirred. At 3 p. m., G. W. ' s natal day. Brave Morrison ranged his sinewy band, Long haired and lithe, robust and gay, Heroes in heart and hand. When once before the teams had met, The glad earth then with blood was wet. Not many weeks gone by; And now there breathed the wintry air The selfsame men who conquered there, With foot to kick and soul to dare As quick, as far, as high. The time rolled on — the team awoke; That bright dream was their last; They came — to hear their fellows scream, " O help! to down the Varsity team! " They came — to fall midst wind and dust, And yells and groans at every gust, And " pig skins " rolling swiftly past As lightnings from the mountain cloud. And heard with voice as trumpet loud. Varsity ' s captain cheer his band: " Kick — till the last padded foe expires; Run-as when you run to fires; Push — for your sweethearts and your sires; School — and your native sand! They struggled like brave men, long and well; They piled the ground with players sore; They conquer ' d — though once their leader fell, Soon entered he the field once more. Their comrades found, when the game was o ' er, That sixteen to nothing was the score, And the red field was won. Then rang the Varsity ' s proud " hooray, " " Hooray! for the foot-ball of U. T. A.! " As gloriously set the sun. Brave team, for thee our lyre is wreathed, For thee our marble wrought, our music breathed; For thee we raise the unearthly yell As with pride our bosoms swell. When sad troubles come, and fears. We think on thy name and check our tears. For thee we wear the " white and gold, " And stand for hours in rain and cold. Unmindful how the time glides by. For thou art Glory ' s now, and Fame ' s, One of the few, the immortal names. That were not born to die. A DREAM. REVEALED ON ST. VALENTINE S DAY. Tho ' to you quite untrue and absurd it may seem, I must tell what I saw in a very strange dream; ' Twas a warm heart wrapped in a mantel of snow, — And though but a dream, I believe it is so. This heart to no mortal has ever been given, Though salesmen and stockmen and statesmen have striven. And dudes by the dozen, and scholars by score, Have weeping retired to return " never more. " And drummers, and drivers, and drawers of bills, And floggers of urchins, and rollers of pills, Having tried hard its owner ' s affections to gain, Turn from her half angry, and two halves insane. In my vision I saw them all meet with hearts sad, And their trials relate to make each other glad; But to hear them relating would put you in mind Of experience meetings, of Methodist kind. One swore he despised her, with half bated breath, And said she would freeze any mortal to death; Some others had sought her hand seven sad years, And were poorer, by ten thousand tubfulls of tears. " Not so! " cried another, ' ' she ' s kind e ' en to men, When she thinks they will visit her never again; ' But her cheeks are as cold as Connecticut ' s snows, For ' tis said she once wept, and her tears all froze. " Then they hushed for awhile, till a youth barely grown, (Whom the rest had all counseled to let her alone) Could return; for all were qui te anxious to learn If he had found warmth where no fires ever burn. His eye was serene and his countenance blest — He had surely been fortunate more than the rest: He showed, too, by signs, that he something had stole, The ' just what it could be could never be told; And just what it was, there ' s none but he knows. As he nevermore spoke — for his lips were both froze. And others still staggered and stumbled with cold, (In a manner most ludicrous, too, to behold.) Their power of bearing the chill overrated, Their love and their energy coagulated. Dumb struck were they all, when this beautiful girl Fell in love— with old Knowledge, and forsook the world To pursue him o ' er barriers — a long weary race — But to get transient gleams of his grim ugly face. Then they followed in chase, crying " Child, know you not He as soon would be wooed by a rude Hottentot? Return, little darling, and throw not away Your love on a monster so ugly and gray, Whose visage is stern as the Alps — glacier worn. Where floods have swept caiions and tempests have torn. ' And along with the others a clown followed near; For clowns are attracted by things that are queer. But she turned not her head and their pleas heard no more Than Baal heard prayers of our fathers of yore; So they mingle their tears as they wait for the day When she ' ll have to take one, to keep others away. In this they mistake; for she needs not e ' en one, — Her present attendants have such good work done In driving men from her, that she will endeavor To keep them around her forever and ever. These attendants are Anger, who no danger fears, Kindness and sympathy, full of their tears. Suspicion, with spy-glass all steady in hand To measure the motives and meanness of man. Old Mrs. Formality, stately and tall. Who would have you believe she ' s the mother of all. She is beautiful, too, plump-figured and round, But her face so contorts at the sight of a clown That the sex all employ her, for the purpose, they say, Of driving these rude silly creatures away. And to see that no man an advantage may take, And yet, force him all the advances to make. This riddle to solve, I must ask some assistance, How can man advance, and yet keep his distance? Yet still it is true, and tho ' hard to define, Around every lady there is a dead-line; And men who cross over infringe on a right. While clowns are intruders if they come in sight. r Formality, Hatred and Anger, with sword Used spear, dart, and arrow, this dead-line to guard, While round it grim Vigilance, armed, stalked about. Like the man at a dime-show, who keeps urchins out. And around this fair being may always be seen Those other attendants of an ideal queen, — All save Love, with whom she would part, And tries hard to smother down deep in her heart. One day when the guards but a feeble watch kept, When Anger lay dreaming, while Vigilance slept, And old Mrs Formality lay on her cot, — Her sins, and her meanness to mankind forgot, — The clown plucked up courage and ventured quite near. And seeing no creatures around him to fear, Approached this strange girl who had puzzled him so. And said unto her, — " Dearest lady, you know That I ' m but a clown from the woods where clowns grow. It is not my object you ladies to vex, But my side ' s full of arrows — they came from your sex; And never a kind word they speak unto me. Yet come I for friendship and beg sympathy. " Suspicion then perched on her brow. " You wretch! I see your motives now! " Then anger lit those blue-gray eyes — " You ' re but a lover in disguise! " Oh, like a book I know you men! You first ask only friendship, then You to my tender heart appeal. And, while I weep, my afifections steal. Oh, Father! My grief thou canst not know! These hateful men annoy me so! Come take me! With this world I ' d part To keep these wretches from my heart! " ' I know, my dear Miss, it is something quite rare For a clown to speak thus to a lady so fair, But each kind word they give unto me is a gem, — I have always for sympathy looked unto them. And if this be evil, or even not best, With the Being who made me the censure must rest; For I felt thus in earliest boyhood, I know, Hence ' twas the Creator himself made me so. " ' Sir, true is the adage, as old is the story That birds of a feather together will cling; But I know ' tis untrue that my beautiful plumage A rude silly goose to my presence could bring. Then go, foolish bird, the belief is quite wrong That my ears were so made as to hear your shrill song. " " Goose? I ' m awkward as he, but to tell what is true. He has done more for mankind than I have, or you; Tho ' exposed to the sun ' s rays, the mind and the storm, He has given his wrappings to make your bed warm; And when, weary, you ' ve lain on his feathers to rest You were cruel if never his being you blessed. Above renowned Keppler, Sir Isaac, and all — Above Galileo, who pierced heaven ' s wall, Stands the gray-feathered prophet, who unhonored lives, The greatest philosopher history gives. And, child, would you mention the being with scorn Who saved civilization before you were born? For Rome would have fallen, while sentinels slept. Had not this true patriot a faithful watch kept. Is it true that you think to that flock I belong? If you think your words wound me, indeed you are wrong. For seeming as one, I shall make no excuse; You have honored me greatly, but slandered the goose. Ivike the goose I ' ll not cling ' round such soul-freezing things, Like Aurora ' s blaze round the frozen pole clings. But swiftly will I from thy chilling form go: — For geese ever fly from the regions of snow. Professing a love for true knowledge you spurn Silly creatures, from whom this great truth you might learn Man is but a fool (and those who seem wise Are but dishonest fools, who their folly disguise). Still, woman, I seek thee; for all the world round Thy smiles the bright sunshine to man ' s dark soul bring: But I ' ve found not e ' en one with a smile for a clown, — Still thy glances I love and thy praises I sing. " Then the clown walked away in mute penitence, And she never has heard of his whereabouts since. But now are his sins and his awkwardness fled; Friends, weeping, read on the pine slab at his head: — ' ' His heart was still frozen where e ' er he would go. Till he left this cold world for a wann one below. This truth from the tomb ancient Cato still cries: " The wise learn from fools, more than fools from the wise. " Now woman, from pride and from vanity turn. And a moral from this foolish clown you may learn. Life is but a pause on a storm-beaten shore: Soon the dust of old mother earth covers us o ' er; Statutes of men are but reeds in a gale. While the laws of vain women are even more frail. But rocks on the coast, our Creator ' s laws stand; From their summits, a view o ' er the sea we command. These alone let us seek, for our little barks frail Must soon that great sea of eternity sail. One of these is true friendship, and if thoughtless men Crush the reeds at its base, in their haste to ascend, Withhold not your hand when your help they may need: L,et those who no higher look, weep for the reed. r ' CHO-CHE-BANG AND CHI-CHII,-BI,00. " Away in far off China, many, many years ago, In the hottest part of China, where they never heard of snow. There lived an old tea-planter, in the province of Ko- Whang, Who had an only daughter, and her name was Cho-Che-Bang. The maiden was a jewel — a Celestial beauty rare. With narrow, slanting eyebrows and carrot-colored hair. One foot was scarce three inches long, the other knew no bounds, She numbered fourteen summers, and she weighed three hundred pounds. On the dreary slopes of Lapland, ' mid their never melting snows, Where the Roly-Boly-Alice in her ruddy beauty glows, Lived a little, dwarfish tinker, who in height stood three feet two, And from his endless shivering, they called him Chi-Chil-Bloo. His eyes were like two marbles, set in little seas of glue; His cheeks a sickly yellow, and his nose a dirty blue. Now Chi-Chil-Bloo, though born mid snows and reared upon their breast, Loved not the bleak, chill land where dwelt the spirit of unrest. He bade adieu unto the scenes of never ending storm, And traveled forth to seek some land where he might keep him warm. Two years he trudged his weary way far from the land of snow. Inside the walls of China, where travelers seldom go. When weary with his pilgrimage, he halted at Ko-Whang, And there fell in with old Ski- Hi, the father of Che-Bang. The old man heard his wondrous tales of sights that he had seen. Where Nature wore a winding sheet and shrouded all things green. Then pondering o ' er within his mind if wonders such might be, At last engaged poor Chi-Chil-Bloo to cultivate his tea. It had always been a custon of the fairy-like Che-Bang, E ' er the evening ' s shadows fell upon the valley ol Ko-Whang, L To wander mid the tea-groves, like an Oriental Queen, On the shoulders of her servants, in a fancy Palanquin. As she merged from out the shadows of the china-berry tree, She spied the little tinker stripping down the fragrant tea. She gazed upon his wondrous form, his eyes and nose of blue, A moment sighing — then deeply fell in love with Chi-Chil-Bloo. She slipped from out her Palanquin, and there dismissed her train, With instruction that an hour passed, they might return again. She then upraised the filmy veil which hid her charms from sight, And poor Chi-Chil-Bloo beheld her face, to him surpassing bright. He gazed, transfixed with wonder, to him surprising fair Were her rounded up proportions, and her salmon-colored hair. He lingered in a dreamy trance, nor woke he from his bliss, Till her loving arms entwine him, and her lips imprint a kiss. She led him to a bower and beside the dwarf she kneeled, And sighed like Desdemona, at his ' scapes by flood and field. He told her tales of reindeer and bears that live at sea, He told her tales of icicles, and she told tales of tea. Long, long, they fondly lingered thus locked in each other ' s arms. He saw in her, and she in him, a thousand glowing charms. When looking down the distant vale, the sun ' s fast fading sheen Fell faintly o ' er the gold of her returning palanquin — " Yonder come my slaves, and now, Chil-Bloo, we part, My father but my father has a cruel, flinty heart. He has promised me to Chow-Chow, the Croesus of Ko-Whang, But Chow-Chow ' s old and gouty, and he wouldn ' t suit Che-Bang. O, come beneath my window at a quarter after three, When the moon is gone a bathing in her bath-room in the sea. And we will fly to other lands, across the waters blue. But hush! There is my palanquin, and now, sweet love, adieu. " They raised her in her palanquin, her young heart throbbing free, While Chi-Chi-Bloo seemed picking up his gathered tea. As he rested from his weary rounds, the dying God of Day, They raised her on their shoulders, and they trotted her away. At the time and place appointed, ' neath her lattice stood the dwarf, He whistled to his lady, and she answered with a cough. She dropped a silken ladder, from her window down the wall, While he — brave knight — stood underneath to catch her if she fall. She reached the ground in safety — one kiss — one fond embrace, Then he trotted, and she waddled, off, in silence from the place. Swift, swift, they hold their journey, lyOve had made her foot- steps light, They hid themselves at morning ' s dawn, and fled again at night. The second night had buried day and folded up her pall, When they reached the sentry station beneath the mighty wall. Che-Bang told well, her tale of love, Chil-Bloo told his. Alas! The sentry had no sentiment and wouldn ' t let them pass, But called a file of soldiers, who took them to Dun-Brown, The Chief— the local Magistrate — the Mufti of the town. Dun-Brown, half Turk, half Tartar, was the terror of the land. And ruled his spacious province, with an iron, bloody hand. A pompous bloated Manderin, as rich as Scripture Dives, He ' d the wisdom of old Solomon, and twice as many wives. This vile old tyrant heard the tale; the trembling maiden eyed, Then in a voice of well-feigned rage with thunder tones he cried, • ' You vile, misshapen scoundrel, you despoiler, rascal, elf, I sentence you to prison, and I ' ll takej Che-Bang myself. He took her to his palace, and he dressed her mighty fine. He gave her bird-nest chowder, and fat puppies done in wine, But she spurned the daindy viants, as she spurned to be his bride, She took to eating rat-soup — poisoned rat-soup — and she died. In a dreary little dungeon, its dimensions six by four, I ay the wretched little tinker, stretched upon the mouldy floor. The midnight gong had sounded; he heard a dreadful clang, And before her quaking lover, stood the spirit of Che-Bang. " Arise, " it cried, ' Chil-Bloo arise; lay down this weary load. Let out thy prisoned spirit from its dark and drear abode, And we will fly to other lands, where fortune smiles more fair. Arise, " it cried, " and follow, " —then it vanished in the air. On the morrow, when the jailer came to serve around his beans, (All the food the prisoners ever got, except some wilted greens). He started back in horror, — high up on the door-way post, Hung the body of the tinker, who had yielded up the ghost. There ' s a legend now in China, that beneath the moon ' s pale sheen Ever fondly linked together, may in summer time be seen, Still wandering ' mid the groves, in the province of Ko- Whang, The little I apland tinker, and his spirit bride, Che-Bang.

The Ashbel Literary Society. When the mental palate of the student becomes somewhat chilled from drinking too deeply of the cold and slightly medi- cated waters of wisdom, the alma mater, wdth true maternal in- stinct, has other and lighter draughts to offer to the lips of her thirsting children. Of these one of the favorite brands — at least to the feminine coterie — is of the latter ' s own invention and naming. It is called the " Ashbel, " and both refreshing and wholesome many have found it, and advantageous also in this, that it leaves no unpleasant after-taste. To drop the figurative, the Ashbel is a Literary Society, foun- ded in November, 1888, by a number of young lady students of the University of Texas. A constitution, based on " Roberts ' Rules of Order, " was adopted; and from a number of names sug- gested that of " Ashbel " was chosen. This name was considered appropriate from the fact that it was borne by Ashbel Smith, one of the first regents of the University, and a strong advocate of co-education. It was decided that the Society should hold its regular sessions at 3 o ' clock in the afternoon, on the second and fourth Saturdays of every month. These sessions were not to be open to the public, but confined to the members and other ladies of the University. The first regular meeting of the " Ashbel " was on December 22, and during the session the following officers were elected fo the first term: Mignonette Carrington, President; Lizzie Wag- gener, Vice-President; May Smith, Corresponding Secretary; Jessie Ward, Critic; Gertrude Whitis, Treasurer; Pauline Flei- shel, Warden; and Lila Belle Waggener, Assistant Warden. After its organization, the Society moved smoothly along with its work, and from meeting to meeting the interest among the members increased, and the other young ladies joined. When the membership had reached seventeen, no more ladies were re- ceived for the first year. The work of the Ashbel was about the same as that of other literary societies, and the program consisted of the usual essays, recitations and debates. The first officers elected had proved so satisfactory to the So- ciety, that, on March 25, they were all chosen to serve another term. During this period the Society had prospered so much that it felt itself able to hold an open session. So on May 14, the last meeting of the year, the ' Ashbel " gave a public meet- ing, which was such a success, that others were held from time to time, and finally it was introduced into the Constitution, that the Society should have one public meeting during each term of the University year. When the University opened in 1889, the " Ashbel " met with increased enthusiasm, and an enlarged roll. Miss Jessie Ward was elected President for this term, and presided over the So- ciety through several months of quiet work, varied only by one public meeting on December 28. The first meeting of the next term was held at the residence of Mrs. R. T. Hill, an honorary member and valued friend of the " Ashbel, " and Miss Alma Harris was installed as President, with Miss Clorie Hill as Vice- President. At this meeting Miss Julia Pease was unanimously elected an honorary member, on account of her kindness to the " Ashbel, " and the interest she showed in its welfare. The usual monotonj of life of the Society was varied this term by a public meeting, and a delightful drive given the " Ashbel " by Miss Pease. This term also was given the first " Ashbel Recep- tion, " on June 14, at Mrs, Kirby ' s. Since that time, the Society has given an annual reception, on the Saturday evening before Commencement. The Society met on November i, 1890, with Miss Helen Beall as President, and Miss Mary Decherd as Vice-President. This term proved to be a crisis in the life of the " Ashbel, " the mem- bers lost interest, and the " Ashbel " seemed in danger of death, even in her youth. Mrs. Clark, however, took matters into her own hands; she invited the Society to meet at her house, and infused new enthusiasm into the members; consequently, the critical moment was safely passed, and the " Ashbel " came out with new strength and courage. Since that dangerous period, the " Ashbel " has continued to flourish. Miss lyila Belle Waggener was elected President on February 21, 1891, and held the ofiice during that term and the first one of the next session. During this period the Society bought, and had hung in its hall, a picture of Dr. Ashbel Smith, whose name it bears. Miss Decherd was elected as the next President, and during her term of office the Ashbel went through r its usual course of work, except that this year for the first time it was given a place on the Commencement program, and on the afternoon of June 21, Dr. Briggs delivered an address before the Society. During this time too, the Ashb el became joint editor, with the Rusk and Athenaeum, of the University Magazine. The Presidents for the year 1892 and ' 93 were Miss Belle Stone, and Miss Nina Hill, and the work of the Ashbel was car- ried on in the usual way. The Society met again in October, 1893, with Miss Hill as President, and a very good membership. After a term of quiet work, Miss Robbins was elected President, and now holds that office, with the Socity in a very prosperous condition. THE ATHENAEUM LITERARY SOCIETY, Presidents, 1893- ' 94.

Soon after the University first opened, a number of young men met and organized the Rusk Literary Society of the University of Texas. It v as founded October 5, 1883, and its early meeting place was in the temporary capitol. Its residence here, however, was brief, for within a few weeks after its organization the Soci- ety removed to its present location. The hall is situated on the third floor of the main building, facing the west, and is very large and commodious. The fur- nishings of the hall, while not at all gorgeous, are nevertheless neat and tastefully arranged, an elegant Brussels carpet cover- ing the floor, and a handsome portrait of General Rusk, a noted figure in Texas history and in honor of whom the Society was named, hanging over the President ' s chair. While it has generally been the business of the Society to dis- cuss weighty questions, in which such important measures as pertain to silver legislation, the Behring Sea controversy, Blaine ' s Reciprocity treaty, and our foreign policy in its relations with the Hawaiian Islands, are brought to a successful termination, still there are times when such subjects are laid aside for those in a lighter vein. For instance, the writer, in looking over the minutes, noticed the following entry: A live subject was then discussed. During the debate on the question, Resolved, ' That the mosquito should be extermin- ated, ' m2ix y pointed thrusts were given and received, and some stingifig and biting sarcasms indulged in. " Though young in years, the Rusk compares favorably with much older organizations, and can boast of some as distinguished men as can be found in any literary society. Among prominent alumni are the following: Hon. L. T. Dashiell, E. V. Hamilton, M. D.; Hon, John H. Kirkpatrick, J. W. Maxwell, Ex- Superintendent Public Instruc- tion; Hon. R. U. Culberson, U. S. District Attorney; Chas. D. Oldright, Ph. D.; Prof. D. A. Peuick, Hon. D. E. Simmons, H. Y. Benedict, M. A.; Hon. J. A. Beall, Hon. Jas. R. Hamilton, Hon. R. ly. Henry, Assistant Attorney General; Hon. R. B. Hood, Hon. T. P. Buffington. The officers of the Rusk, for the ensuing term are as follows: President Geo. W. Hamlett, Jr. Vice-President R.

Whereas, God in his infinite love has pleased to bless some mortals above others by bestowing on them the priceless heritage, red hair, and realizing that those on whom He has thus smiled should show their joint appreciation of this outward mark of that inner superiority, we, the red-haired students of the Uni- versity of Texas, do band ourselves together for mutual protec- tion, delectation and edification. Article i. Therefore be it resolved. That this organization shall be known as the Ochiltrees, and that we jointly and sever- ally shall protect said organization against all attacks considered personal or otherwise, so that its escutcheon shall remain un- blemished, and we shall be enabled to hand down a glory to our posterity in keeping with that of their illustrious ancestors. Art. 2. Be it further resolved, That all members of this or- ganization shall consider themselves as first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of their fellow-members, and that their every action must be governed by this opinion, which all must love and respect. Art. 3. Be it further resolved, That though we are God ' s chosen children, we shall not humiliate those less fortunate by referring to the fault of nature in their composition, but we do condole with them in this their sad hour of affliction. Art. 4. Be it finally resolved, That the name of Thomas P. Ochiltree, the Texan, ex-journalist, ex-congressman, ex-poli- tician. Fellow of the Royal Society, turfman and " hail-fellow- well-met, " whose Titian locks have been fanned by the breezes of every clime, whose veracity has never been questioned (?), whose ability to borrow and unwillingness to repay are fully recognized by men of every nation, be revered as a beacon-light for evermore, and with this view, we hereby adopt it as our clan ' s appellation, and that we hereby order that the seat of honor by our chief executive be reserved for him. V ' e -c!j? izla.. Historical. On the evening of February 22d, about a score of Titian- locked students held a secret session in the History room, for the purpose of drafting a constitution for an organization to be per- fected by and composed of red haired students only. It was unanimously agreed that the purpose of the organization should be for the mutual protection, elevation and delectation of that body politic. These triune purposes, attributes of a god-like soul, have been closely followed, and with exceptionally pleas- ing results. The members of the club are all on most friendly terms, and each and all take an active interest in the regular meetings, which occur every Friday evening, in the History room. As to the social functions, they too have been very pleasant and profitable. During the month of April, the mem- bers tendered Miss McKay, the sponsor, a moonlight excursion on the lake. The event was pionounced by all to have been the most pleasant event of the season. The President tendered an- other excursion to the members and visiting lady friends of the Club during April, which too for " elevation and delectation " was inimitable. Miss McKay entertained the organization at the Governor ' s Mansion during the same month. Several other events of like nature are on the tapis, but at the hour of going to press the dates are not definite enough to insure accuracy in statement. A public literary program will be rendered during May, also the club will be addressed by the most prominent red haired citizen of Texas during June. So brass is the metal that wins, after all ! i Y.

It is memorable as the first occasion in which distinction in the athletic world has been attained. The championship by the foot-ball team was gained by decisive victo- ries, which were secured, as such victories always must be, by fair training, regular practice, judicious captaining, and persist- ent managing. Athletic enthusiasm may be said to have reached its lowest ebb at the close of the session of ' 92- ' 93. The question of the formation of a ' Varsity foot-ball eleven was unmooted, the annual Field Day, which had such an admirable success the previous year, was allowed to slip by, while the base- ball team made a few spasmodic endeavors to arouse an athletic spirit. At the opening of the University last fall, a few who were in- terested in athletic sports, determined that, if indefatigable effort could accomplish anything, a foot-ball eleven should be formed. This was finally accomplished. It was, however, with some mis- givings that the Dallas challenge was accepted. The worth of the new ' eleven " was to be immediately matched with the sinew of the giants who had been the boasted champions of the State from time immemorial. It was thought by those who were supposed to know, that the papers of the morning after the Thanksgiving game would announce to a horrified public and to sorrowing families the death of eleven University foot-ball players. The Dallas boys were equally confident of an easy and overwhelming victory. After the game, there was a difference. The Dallas boys had our sympathy. ' ' Lo! now their glory smeared in dust and blood! " Or, as one of their own men less elegantly expressed it, " Our name is pants and our glory has departed. " When the news of the ' Varsity ' s success reached Austin, the effect was immediate. The lethargy which had fallen like a pall over athletic enthusiasm was at once shaken off " , and the students greeted the return of the eleven with horns, brass instruments, and hideous noises. From that time on the permanency of the foot-ball team was assured. Space will not permit any further detailed description. San Antonio ' s hopeful brood came up to Austin. The sight was pitiable. " It was so soon that they were done for, We wondered what they were begun for. " Then came the trip to San Antonio, with half the University accompanying the team. The result taught the descendants of the Alamo that vengeance was not theirs. All Austin was alive when the Dallas giants, with blood in their eyes, and money in their pockets, came on February 22nd to blot out the memory of their defeat, and, incidentally, to wipe up the University. The extreme cold of a Northern blizzard did not keep the crowd at home. The Dallas boys went home that night, a sadder but a wiser set. While these victories are eminently satisfactory in themselves, yet their most encouraging aspect is in indicating of what things athletic the U. of T. ' s are really capable. Our Field Day, on April 12, was successful to an unlooked for degree. It showed at once the athletic ability of the students, and the sympathy and patriotism of the Austin people. With foot-ball and base-ball teams, with a prosperous tennis association, with an embryo crew and a rowing club, there is no reason why athletics in our institution should not forever flour- ish, and never again fall into a slumber. It remains with the students to keep this enthusiasm alive, which forms such a char- acteristic feature of college life of to-day. f FOOT-BALL. ' 93- ' 94. CHAMPIONS. J. H. Myers, Centre, Jas.

The Kodak m The Heart of Asia ACROSS ASIA ON A BICYCLE " is the title of an in- teresting series of articles descriptive of a journey from Constantinople to Pekin with wheel and Kodak now running in the Century. The authors, Messrs. Aren and Sachtleben, did not follow the beaten track of travel but pluckily made their way through the semi-barbarous interior and brought back from that hitherto unphotographed part of the Orient a magnificent series of Kodak views man} of which are reproduced in the Century. In a recent lette r they say: 2500 Kodak Pictures. The Kodak was carried over our silioulder.s 011 a bicycle journey of 15,044 miles, a feat that would have been impossible with an ordinary hand camera and the necessary supply of glass plates. We secured some 2500 unique and valuable photographs with the Kodak on our route through the interior countries of the Asiatic Continent—Asia Minor. I ' trsia, Turkestan and Cliina— and have no hestitation in saying that the photographic success of our journey was due largely to the excellence of tliat instrument. Thos. G. Allen, Jk. W. L.

WALSH The Student ' s Quiz Kook$« are designed for the use of students of law, whether in an Office or in a Law School. Tliey attain a manifold purpose, viz.: Tliey place in the hands of the students the work actually required in the chief branches of the law required at the leading law schools. They arrange in a systematic order the questions, with their answers- required for admission to the bar of any state, and by any law school in the United States. They give the student, in small space, the fundamental parts of the classics and chief text-books of the law indicated below, in the shape most useful to him. The principles of the law, treated in the works mentioned, are shown clearly, concisely and fully. The citation of leading cases, illustrating the principles stated, is a feature in which the work excels all o ther works of its class. By permission of the authors, editors and publishers of the works named, copious extracts from their text and annotations are given. No other book in existance covers the same ground in the san e manner. Students will find that, in comparatively brief time, they can master that which they must master, and which tney would be many months in obtaining in the usual way.
