THE thought so often brought before us by our Professor of History,—that history is not so much a record of events as a story of development and progress— comes to my mind as I begin the history of the Class of ’95. It is not necessary, then, for me to indulge in panegyrics upon the generally recognized superiority of this class, or recount in high-flown words the deeds of its members. Moreover, I promise not to allude to them as wonderful beings “ whose classic brows beam with radiant knowledge, whose eyes sparkle with mysterious intellectuality ” as class historians often are tempted to do. Mv only purpose is impartially to note their progress. Happily, this speaks for itself. The four years spent within the walls of our University have plainly not been in vain. Under its uplifting influence, we have developed from a crude crowd into a bright band, in which, no doubt, may be found many future statesmen, orators, musicians, teachers, house-keepers, and—as for poets —well,—“There is something of poetry born in us each, (though in many, perhaps, it is born without speech.)” From Freshmen, in the fullest sense of the word, we have developed into intelligent, thoughtful, yet humble-minded Seniors, conscious that,— “ In us there dwells No greatness, save it be some far off touch Of greatness to know well we arc not great.” With the genius of hard work, generous views, and high ideals we have faithfully toiled along the way to glory,—the straight paths of learning. That we have some-times wandered away, now to pick a few berries by the roadside, and again in the fields in full chase of some bright butterfly, has served only to make the journey more pleasant. So pleasant, in fact, it has been, that it makes us sad to think that the little paths, grown so dear to us. will soon verge into the wider highways of life. One thought comforts us. We can leave with the assurance of many deep lessons learned, many treasures of wisdom garnered. In no spirit of boasting we can sav and feel that our knowledge of life has been deepened and made truer, and our spirits brought more in touch with the harmony of the universe. I can wish nothing better for the Class of ’95 than that, long years hence, when college pranks and revelries are but pleasant memories, the genial flame of love and sympathy kindled here in their hearts will still be burning, and that each member who may go forth to take his place in the world may win distinction and so add honor to the institution we love so well—the Texas University.

I need you not; nor you ye Muses, sweet hauntresses of “ Helicon’s harmonious springs.” Nor will I invoke thy aid, O Dreams, ye gentle messengers of Sleep. Of late, the historian has lain awake much at night, dwelling on tender recollections of the receptions, (that we of ’96 have never had), Lodge’s Modern Europe, and Anthropoid Apes, (see Biology). But with thankful hearts all Juniors can now say : “ Farewell, O Lodge, we’ve gone to ‘ Greener ’ pastures.’’ And now, let us glance briefly at ’96. Since Oct. 1st, 1892, the proud 130, who were then “ Fresh ” at the U. of T., have dwindled to thirty-four. Fifty-two became Sophs., and we did hope that those of us who passed successfully from English I., would hold out to the end ; for surely we were far beyond the “ slings and arrows of outrageous ” grading. And the “ Garrisons ” and “ Battles ” we have been connected with have tended only to strengthen us after “ passing” them. So, why this great decrease? Perchance some have been lost in the “Mezes” of college life—but, no, the Philosopher is too new an arrival for that. Nor could the Jolly “ Harper ” Man, Lord of the Chemical Department, have lured any to the realm of molecules and atoms. Certainly none were detained at “ Houston.” And we hope, when 1896 comes round, that none will have been slain by Win. the Conqueror, notwithstanding the fact that he is now the victor, and that the great “ Norman ” lion keeps close watch over the Biological Field. And where arc the two poets of ’92-3, those who by their sonnets won each a Hamberlinian Book of Poems ? One is still with us ; the other—is teaching school at Manchaca. This year, the class has among its members two noted biologists. One can with extraordinary loquacity discourse on the chara and its punctum vegitationis ; and the other has found why the stem of a plant grows up and the roots down. A plant cell, being thinner at the top, this logician says that the enclosed protoplasm naturally seeks an exit at this weak point. The roots of course grow' down to keep things balanced. This same gentleman has seen the flocks “ ruminate ” from place to place meanwhile “chewing their cuds.” But allowances must be made for him, for as you know, the course of Biology never did run smooth. But enough of biologists. 7As to the class as a whole, I can say that it is almost a grown man now, and one would scarcely believe that it once started out as a baby Freshman. But “ All is change ”; and the Junior young man will soon be dead. And then a little space, and he will be resurrected as a Senior; and then all Juniors must, as it were, put on immortality, and keep up the unblemished record that each preceding senior class has made. Then Ix-t knowledge grow from more io more, lint more of reverence in us dwell; That mind and soul, according well, May make one music as before. Hut vaster." And now farewell, O ye Juniors,--------- ’T were better it should l c confessed “ I leave thy praises unexpressed.” 18G£Ws of ’97. Class Colors: White and Green. 0FFIG6RS. W. S.

To resume the history from where “ Captain Kidd ” makes his finis, or rather to recapitulate,—when in 1893 on the twenty-seventh day of September, ’97s first presented themselves upon the scenes of this institution, they were not of a class,—yes, a class of “ Huns,” of true barbarian stock ; not those, however, that rode upon stout little ponies, that had little points for eyes, with long scars down their cheeks for beauty spots, but those of a visage sun-brown in hue, and of a blush not altogether artificial, indeed, contented to ride upon so docile an animal as a jack. What we did and how in many ways we benefited suffering humanity in our Freshman year has been admirably stated in another connection. It now falls to the lot of the Historian to recount the deeds done of a year that advances us another quarter toward the end of our race, and to voice the sentiments of a class fanciful in its nature, individual in its thoughts, and generous in its “misgivings.” Passing rapidly from a stage mythical into that of one civilized and cultured, through the metamorphosis of a final examination, ’97s were pronounced “self-sufficient Sophomores,” and upon their return donned the dignity of their station. Hut upon their return what was their sorrow to find that barely half of former days had returned to their first love, but these were brave hearts and strong fellows, determined to bear their banner, the white and the green, to heights yet unattempted. As was common in days of yore, so, soon after our return we resolved that we have a reception, and now we never meet except to move the same thing, a feature characteristic of ’97 that tends to bind more hearts together than does distress or the destruction of bloody war. Our sophomoric existence has been disturbed not by cane rushes, not by plug-hat contentions, nor even by a struggle with the Freshmen, but by the unceasing monotony of the classroom. However, it is the consensus of ’97s that the Millennium is in a sense realized, indeed, “ the restoration of Israel is at hand, for the wolf (Soph. Englishmen) lies down with the lamb and the leopard with the kid,” etc. In a word, the hearts of the lovers of literature have been completely won. 21In assuming our new rank, ’97 has not been worldly wise as the name implies, but on the contrary, is inclined to be reserved, conducting herself with a bearing and a modesty becoming her station and her dignity—this our passport to the hearts and the respect of our fellow students. Yet to say that we are no graveyard’s people sufficiently characterizes the class of '97. We stand fairly in our classes, indeed, while sojourning at wisdom’s fount, we did intend to study. . Often we meet in grand council and discuss the unfortunate fate of Jack or Gill “ poor fellows,” but they need not our sympathies ; their health improved and now they are no longer with us. The white and the green. What a world of pleasant memories rush across our mind at the utterance of those two magic words ! In fact, ‘97 retains much of its butterfly and grasshopper nature, letter enigma, D. S. If anyone does not know the interpretation of D. S., remain ignorant no longer, but even bear in mind that Dainty Steps is the pass-word to the festive board of Sophomore Receptions. At the outset the class appeciated that to unite meant to succeed and that by uniting a common interest would nourish budding affections into the fuller bloom of friendship. But now many have gone and few are left us. In this respect ’97, though a gay and jolly class, mourns the loss of absent ones seeking fortune elsewhere, while it cherishes with maternal tenderness the ever-increasing bonds of friendship, peculiar boon of heaven.” “Directress of the brave and just. O guide us through life’s darksome way! And let the tortures of mistrust On selfish bosoms only prey.” I.ead on, brave class, continue thus, and may your star be an ever rising one.— A shout, a waving of hands, a flourish, and Casabianca is no more.oj5 ’98.

LOST, bewildered, half frightened, the lonely candidate for entrance to the academic course of the University paces the several halls of the building and hunts in vain for the place to disclose his intentions. After many times accosting the strutting Sophomores, having taken them for the managers of the institution, they whose good fortune it has been to become accquainted with the word “matriculate” (smiles from the potent-grave-and-reverend Junior Laws), at last tremblingly present their blanks to the seemingly stern terrific professors, and with even greater disquietude gaze upon the unheard-of questions they must answer to enter. Proudly and with especial confidence prances the affiliated High School graduate of the previous year and deigns to recognize only those who like him hold the coveted diploma. Ah, but what a drop! “ How are the mighty fallen !” From a last year’s graduate to a this year’s Freshman; from a High School First to a University Fourth! The entrance examinations over, all moves smoothly on. No time is lost in taking steps towards class organization, and early in the session over one hundred and seventy-five Freshmen assemble in that dear old meeting-place, the History-room, and proceed at once to band themselves together by a constitution guaranteeing to every member who fulfills its requirements, happiness and prosperity for the four following years. What a meeting that was ! How strange we felt! How little then we knew of one another and----Hamberlin ! The fifteen minutes intermis sion provided for was destined to be a main factor in bringing about the object for which the organization was begun—the attainment of that brotherly and sisterly love usually found in organizations of such character. Some wanted to amend by striking out “fifteen minutes” and inserting therefor “ two hours,” but a suggestive glance, at that juncture, from Mrs. Kirby—and the amendment was quashed. According to the constitution the class was to have only one meeting a month, but it was tacitly understood, however, that bi-weekly called meetings would be perfectly satisfactory to all the active members. Of the hundred and seventy-five members of this class over fifty are girls, and the prettiest set of girls too ever in attendance during any one year at the University since its establishment. Receptions at Mrs. Peacock’s, Mrs. Bedell’s, Mrs. Bachman’s followed in close succession, and the year only half gone. How happy in one another’s company! How glad to meet their companions of the school-room as participants in an evening's 25enjoyment. And why not ? Why should we not at once learn each other and begin to enjoy ourselves with one another, since we are destined to live for four long years together? It is said that acquaintances formed at college are never, never forgotten. True, indeed, will it be in this case. At present it is our intention to graduate in ’98. Then, although we shall separate to go to the north, cast, south and west, in fact, to every part of the entire State, we shall be separated by distance only. Many times did we together display our brilliancy in the classrooms, and all too often was that “ sigh of relief ” experienced by every member of the Freshman Mathematics. Virgil and Xenophon alike also caused those restless moments, and sweetly, oh, how sweetly did the sound of the gong giving notice of the expiration of the hour fall upon the ears of the unprepared. But there yet remain three years more in which we may make amends for past zeros, or to continue in winning distinctions. And when '98 does come it shall find the class of its year, the most dazzling ornament to the State, the University has ever been able to produce. Then we leave school and its honors for others, and with our banners of crimson and white, we will proudly and grandly march out and deploy upon the actual avenues of life, dominating wheresoever we shall chance to pitch our tents, until finally merging together at the crystal gates, with those banners still waving unstained we shall bow with humbleness touched with loyalty to the coming classes and pass away from this field of work forever. “ But we have not done with music, no, nor with rhyme .... so long as boys whistle and maids sing.” —EMERSON. So long as boys and maidens sing We have not done with song or rhyme; So long as youthful hearts true ring E’en students will have joy to sing Of fancy light in measured time. And what in happy spring so sweet As early robin's caroled lay! And naught, “ if men were wise to see’t,” In youth lime season is so sweet As song from carefree hearts and gay. Then sing and sing, O little birds, Of opening buds and sunny darts! And, Freshmen, sing in happy words And set to music, as the birds. The song within your joyful heart. 26Senior Law Picture.Law Gfaws, ’95. 0FFIG6RS. W. P. Lobran, . “ Baby ” Myers, MEMBERS. E. A. Belsterling, R. L. Clark, M. W. Davis, Emmett Ellis, J . P.

Stark, VV. O. Stephens, 28HistoTV, L ax Gfsus-s, ’95 THE history of a class should contain nothing but truth, and yet. if the truth is faithfully chronicled I fear we shall be accused of egoism, of lacking modesty. But come what may, truth is imperial, and the truth shall be told. The law class of ’95 originally numbered over sixty members. But where are they to-day ? what has become of them ? some envious academic has had the hardihood to suggest that they have busted, but such is not the case, they have been called home by the death of their fathers. Incredulous ! Within two years forty of sixty-five men should lose their fathers? strange, and yet Tis so. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction. The class of ’95 has been a model class ; they have displayed a zeal for the acquisition of legal knowledge, which perhaps has never been equaled : they are always faithful in the discharge of all the duties imposed upon them by the professors ; not a member of this class has ever made a bush, failed to pass a subject with distinction, or cut a lecture ; the arduous work of the professors has, by the untiring efforts, 'he efficient work, the earnest enthusiasm, and the careful attention of all of the class, been made a pleasure, and we have not the slightest doubt that they will point future classes to us and try to inculcate in their minds a like zeal for the acquirement of legal lore. The brain of this class is something remarkable ; with us the most intricate, difficult and complex questions of corporation law become simple and elementary principles ; the skill with which we apply rules of law to a given statement of facts is certainly very striking; the clever manner in which we master the points of law decided in a given case is surely unusual ; in fact it appears as though almost every member of this extraordinary class has a mind that grasps with ease the most perplexing questions of law, cognizant of the full force and reason, knowing exactly when and where to apply the rule, and fully conscious of the fact that when the reason fails, the law no longer fits the case. We leave for the active field of practice buoyant and hopeful, we feel that our future success is assured, we can not fail, we have the mettle of a Bell-sterling, the dye of a Broum, the experience of a Clark, the gameness of a Cocke, the application of a Davis, the complacency of a Denton, the fiction of an Ellis, the fortuity of a Fisher, the face of a Ham(m)er, the faithfulness of a Hart, the pleading of a Hightmver, the dignity of a Hilbrant, the fertility of a Johnson, the light of a Lampkin. the rhetoric of a Lemby, the brain of a Lobban, the reason of a Mathis, the egotism of a McLean, the adhesiveness of a Myer, the strength of a Myers, the audacity of a Newton, the loquaciousness of an O' Quinn, the integrity of a Phelps, the pride of a Rector, the honor of a Sanford’ the affability of a Spencer, the diplomacy of the Stephens, and the history of a Thomas. 29Law Gfass, ’96 E.

GENERALLY speaking Law is a rule of action, and so also, I do not hesitate to declare that “ specially ” speaking the Law Class of ’96, are men of action. But ’tis not of these special acts that I will speak,—for I would not embarrass any one, or any number of my fellows, by detailing in this record any of their special acts. Indeed, this record is authentic and only Bat(t)s, with the eye of a hawk, could vouch for the acts of these great followers of Blackstone in their rambles over our capital city in search of those great and enduring principles of law, with which some day they expect to squelch criminality, wipe out litigation, and acquit all men at one and the same time of all charges against them, no matter what is the nature; taking care of course to secure their fees by a lien on many hundreds of heads of broken down, one-eyed, cockle-burr-tailed Texas ponies, which they know cannot possibly live until the maturitvof the notes which their clients have so generouslv and unhesitatinglv given. But I propose that we do not show so little consideration for others of the profession who may come after us, by thus growing rich as a Gould, and making ourselves illustrious, leaving nothing to which can be applied the Articles, Sections, Pages, Paragraphs, Lines, etc., of our Revised Statutes, and the wise and judicious “ thou shalts ” and “ thou shall nots ’’ of our most honorable Legislature, to which so many of our predecessors are belonging. Wonderful indeed is this class and wise in the Law, for they can now put in a general demurrer to the famous quotation of the great Dumas when he makes the Count of Monte Cristo say to his wife, as they recede from that fabled isle, “ All things come to those who watch and wait,” judging from the time it has watched and waited for a final judgment on Blackstone “ Exams.” Oh ! that this Daniel ! Yea, Daniel, most rightful Judge! would judge and judge quickly,—and take from our breasts this pound of suspense.—in short, make it “ Satisfactory ” “ though it be not so nominated in the bond.” But aside from this, the Law Class of ’96 has shown what true, good, honest work can be done in a post-graduate course, for it has been said of this class that it is one of the most promising that our glorious State University has ever boasted of. and we 3«its members, hereby pledge ourselves to fulfill that promise. Her men are especially broad and cosmopolitan in their views, she boasts of her share in the victories of our college in athletics, she has her representatives on the football gridiron, on the tennis-court, and on the baseball field, she takes an equal stand in literature, some of the names on her roll being also seen on the editorial staff of the “Mag’’and on the executive staff of the literary societies, and in University affairs generally she has a telling influence. She is unique in all of her acts, her celebration of the holidays and the honor she pays to the memory of the chieftains and heroes of our glorious country. This year Father George’s birthday was commemorated by this band of intellectual colossi in various ways and in sundry places. Some strolled into the wilds of the surrounding mountains where they could lay their weary bones down on the verdure and dream of Maud Mullers left behind, while others less fortunate—perhaps—went in quest of mashes, some gamb(o)led on the green, and others could be seen assiduously pushing pool-balls. The connection of a man with the Junior Law Class is perhaps the greatest epoch in the life of a college bred lawyer. It is at this time that a young man most needs an unerring and definite finger-post to direct his way and guide him on a certain road to self-respect, esteem and confidence, without which he will never succeed. It is here that he puts off boyish things and learns to act as a man, to speak as a man, ’tis the time when resolves are made, ambitions awakened, when he begins to dream of taking a creditable stand before the courts of his country and of making for himself a reputation as a jurist. And this class, when these aims arc attained, will not take all the credit to themselves, for it has this guide in our most honorable faculty, and any sue' cess which any one of its members may attain will in great measure be due to them. And if the members of this class do themselves and their professors justice, they need have no fear of the senior year, or of the time when they come to face a jury or bench ; they will have the mighty weapon of a knowledge of the law, and ability to resist attack, and though we will regret to sever the ties which bind us to “old Junior ’96,’’ we take comfort in the thought that many of us may yet be associated together, and trust that not one of us will ever have cause to regret this beginning in our chosen profession, and that all will reflect credit on those who directed our young minds and ideas, thus “bestowing honor where honor is due.” Knox Jones.Skeleton of a “Fresh” Essay...Founded 1839, Miami University.

SINCE in this age of specialization the scientist is too apt to forget the narrow limitation of his special province, and filled by his own inspiration to ascribe to it an importance not its due, the Cosmos has been organized (1894) and as the name implies is a society whose aim is to view the universe as one great totality and the special sciences as one harmonious system of human interest.

THE Texas Academy of Science was founded to advance the natural and exact sciences both by research and discussion, and to promote intercourse between those who are cultivating science in different parts of the State. It has performed a highly important function in giving encouragement and outlet to the creative powers of talented students. As an example in one branch alone, pure mathematics, may be mentioned, among others, H. T. Benedict, M. B. Porter, and E. L. Dickson, all of whom have produced mathematical papers before the Academy of such high merit that Mr. Benedict was given a permanent place in the Faculty of the University of Virginia, Mr Porter was granted extraordinary privileges and rank by Harvard, and Mr. Dickson was given a Shattuck Fellowship by Harvard and the Senior Fellowship by the University of Chicago. Dr. Halsted. one of the founders of the Academy, has been an officer continuously since its organization, and this year his Inaugural Address, reprinted by Science, February 22d. 1895, attracted the most widespread comment and praise. His subject was; “Original research and creative authorship the essence of university teaching.” This may be considered as typical of the stand taken by the Texas Academy in matters educational. 84Firmf Baff.

THE future progress and civilization of the world depends upon the science of engineering. Without it all great improvements are impossible. Before the knowledge that science is continually giving to the world can be utilized for the benefit of mankind in its practical application towards alleviating want in the world, it must pass through the magic hand of the engineer, the impress of whose genius is seen in the wide range of usefulness to which this new acquisition of knowledge is extended and for which it is prepared. Beginning as a branch of the school of Pure Mathematics, engineering in this university has advanced in importance until it has recently risen to the dignity of a separate “ Department. ” This advance has been the result of persistent, conscientious work, and the standard of this department is as high as that of any engineering school «9in the South. The first advance was made in 1890 when the School of Applied Mathematics was created. Three years later, an appropriation of $4000 by the Legislature gave it an ample and costly equipment. January 17, 1895, marks the last and greatest advance, for then it was that this school was made a separate “Department” coordinate with the Departments of Law and Medicine. The number of students is small, the severity of the course blighting the hopes of many during the first and second years. These unfortunate ones, however, are not hopelessly lost, but find solace and renewed hope in Junior Law, which class is indebted to the Enginnecring Department for some of its members. The two most insurmountable obstacles in the path of the engineering student are considered to be Descriptive Geometry and Stone Cutting. Both are placed in the last term of their respective years, and in that have an additional advantage over the poor student who encounters them after he is worn out with a struggle during two terms with trigonometrical formula; which it is thought necessary to “ rub into him.” In addition to the regular course, engineering students are offered the opportunity of becoming proficient in the noble art of fencing, the mighty T square being the authorized weapon, and often the monotony is broken by a spirited encounter between several ambitious Freshmen or Sophomores who are anxious to test and exhibit their prowess. Again the student learns how to keep himself supplied with thumbtacks, pencils, erasers, ink. etc., without depending upon the stationers. The musical education of the student is not neglected, for within the sacred precincts of the drawing-room, he can sing and whistle, tormented by no fear of the sudden appearance of the Proctor. That this is of some importance is shown by the fact that the leading spirit in the Glee Club is an engineer. Thus, you see that while we are the practical people of the University, we do not neglect the finer arts. What have we done ? Why, the engineers had such a cinch on the first honors that they were abolished out of kindness toward the rest of the students. In fact, as you now see, this Department will rank with any other in the University, and that it is sending out men, thoroughly equipped to attempt, as our professor of Mathematics says “the mastery of the Universe.” 90V ocmcg Men’5 GBristisuo jTs-s’n.

O' H, once more I can hear The faint whisper way off here; They say it’s from the town. Who knows it’s turned round ? When I saw your letter here, I found it piercing to the ear ; And the contents of the same, Was gentle, meek and tame. I can hardly express the way Of appreciation it deserves this day ; For appreciation I know not the way, And it’s useless yes to say. You spoke of enough now the stile, 1 had concluded 1 was growing wild. The world cares not for Jim or me. And I was wandering, don’t you see ? You spoke of school days, of the rest, For aught I know “it’s for the best.” But do you think I could entwine In one lone year your love divine ? Prof. K. Dick Slaughter thinks it will not do. What do you think my hopes with you ? And if you think this will do, Send me the names and I’ll try too. October t.—Many suddenly find the climate unhealthy, and depart. 101October 4.—Sawnie Robertson sees the light towers, and asks why they hang their • martin gourds " so light. The gale it travels swiftly. It travels to the west. If you doubt this, my true love, Will you put it to a test? As 1 gaze up in the heavens, I see the passers by, Hut can a worthless boy as I Catch your jet black eye ? The eagle is a wild bird, The sparrow is the same, The eagle devours the wild swine, The lion does in Maine. As I rode out to the church in a hack, I accepted the theory your hair was black. Is this false ? or if it true, Tell me, true love, tell me, do. Hut as the heavens close her wings on high Your gentle voice would reach the sky. And the angels of the heavens sigh To see a tear drop from your eye. The day is drawing to a close, And I am tired and must repose, I’ll bring this poem to a close, It may he finished for all one knows. The sun is shining on yonder high, Excuse this poem if it don’t suit your eye. If it suits your mind it’s all the same, Will you receive a handle to your name ? As the morning lark that soars on high I hope to meet you bye and bye, Where troubles cease and trials o’er, Will join our hands to part no more. October 7— J. W.

Why the Game was Delayed. “ Aha ! ” said the young man who for some time had been lurking around the vicinity. 1 am on to i)is little racket now ! ” The young man having gained his object, departed. The tennis game, however, was delayed several hours until Mr. B. could secure another racquet. Probably Both. “They are going to organize a German club.” “ Dancing or beer ? ” “This is carrying things too far,” remarked Burglar Bill, after carrying his booty for about fifteen miles, without finding a safe place wherein to deposit it. “ I am sure,” remarked the orator of the day in a little western town, “ that I am right in what I say and that the gentlemen of the audience will bear me out.” There was a slight stir and five sturdy auditors approached with a large tri-cornored rail and proceeded to verify his prediction.

They wish it were sojourning In the under world of flames. And without a word of warning Early on some Monday morning, The Professor sees adorning The high walls of his lecture-room, A production highly mystic, Till he sees some characteristic Of himself, in mood artistic Wrought upon the blackboard’s gloom. His front gate is often painted And his cistern vilely tainted With an ancient tomcat, sainted By his death some days before. And a day but rarely passes But some student sneaks his glasses, While he explains the “ bridge of asses ” At the blackboard o’er and o’er. And his nights are nights of sorrow; For he shudders at the morrow, Thinking in the greatest horror Of the schemes they may devise. For they pass their hours of dreaming In a dark and wicked scheming, Over novel exploits seeming Good unto their wicked eyes.

E was a youthful lawyer, and He loved a maid of sweet sixteen. But she refused his heart and hand In fact, she did him mean. He then appealed unto a maid Who mixed in gay society. “ I cannot marry you ’ so said This maid of high degree. An amorous widow next he cast His marriage-yearning eye upon. His soul was filled with visions vast; He found himself undone ! A spinster lean, long years unwed, He next resolved that he would court. “ Alas ! this is,” the lawyer said, “ The court of last resort! ” J. R. Taylor.

II. O summer seas! that lave our coast Whose laughing waves in frolic host Run, toying with the shepherd gale Who drives them in with laughter pale In foam Hocks pallid as a ghost, We know not which we love the most. Which mood the deepest spell can boast. O summer seas! This joyous rush, or when the sail Hangs idle, and the swift winds fail, And we lie drifting, still almost, O summer seas ! On the Ben Hur.

In love's own chain ’twould be a link To draw him on to Hymen’s brink, And happy he’d immortalize His sweetheart’s nose. II. His sweetheart’s hair ? If it did curl, And make more fair a pretty girl, If it were black, or gold, or brown As fine and lustrous as her gown, If in the dance’s dizzy whirl, When hair-pins slip, he’d seen her twirl Its silken length, and backward hurl His sweetheart’s hair, ’Twere well. But if the assembled town Had seen the brow of beauty frown, When from the bands of shell or pearl The switch broke loose, he were no churl, If love had fled, when tumbled down His sweetheart's hair.

S., ]fount in a copp of Bisbpam on £quitp. To all who this may read I The following MSS. are taken from the poetical collection of my unfortunate friend and colleague J. Blackstone Chctty. an extremely gifted young man. whose only mistake was that he gave up his time to Law, instead of plunging resolutely into the literature of Soap and Syrup advertisements. After his graduation he went forth gaily to practice his chosen profession, having engaged an office formerly tenanted by a successful dentist. He did not accomplish his purpose, being only enabled by fell fate to practice the lesser virtues. Business remained an utter stranger. Thus, little by little, enforced abstinence from food, lack of occupation and the frequent lectures of Bispham on Equity drove the poor fellow into mild, melancholy madness, and later, into poetry. One fatal morning, Jeamcs was found lifeless in his office chair, pen in hand. He had died unrepentant. His last poem is the second of the series below. In his will and testament—most correctly and neatly drawn—he left to myself his Bispham on Equity. Though at first inclined to regard his bequest as a piece of moribund sarcasm, I soon discovered the case to be more villainous by far. For. into that volume, he had placed a complete conglomeration of his poetical flights. There were 12.000 of them—and everyone bore on the subject of “ Law ! ” By the terms of the will, I was forced to read them. I read them. Now. I send you a couple of the lot. with a double purpose. In the first place. I must have fellow-sufferers. In the second instance, I hope most sincerely, as man and friend of man. that these sad traces of a wasted life may deter a youthful innocent or two from the luring hell-path of the Law. Yours. H. R. R. H. I. The Law. MOTTO. —And they called the monster ‘ Nomos’-that is Law ! WHEN man rebelled—so runs the ancient story— Jove hurled him from the Islands of the Blest, And from his head he tore the golden glory, And tore the gem Content out of his breast, And, wrathful still, for full a thousand hours. Sat, somber-browed, high on his tower-throne. From deepest night he called the fiendish powers. The Furies three, and spoke to these alone : “ To work ! ” he cried, “ ye three ! The pride of Hades ! I crave revenge on man, my creature, lo! Who, through my hate, and with your hellish aid is Now to be crushed by a great final blow ! ” February 14—Snow.

To give it life, knelt down the oldest sister And kissed the horror on its fanged maw: Then rose the monster, as the fury kissed her, And Jove cried joyfully : “ View her in awe ! Against the peace of man I do enlist her, I give her all the breed to burn and blister. To plague and plunder, and her name is LAW.” Upon her crook-back hung a cloak of ermine The gleeful god, and slipped into her fist The Adder Discord, with another vermin The Viper Avarice—that crawling, hissed— And threw her straight from his Olympian region Down on the green, and as yet peaceful ball. Now,” laughed the god, “ by mine immortal legion ! I am revenged upon the rebels all! You threatened me. who gave ye life and reason ? You would have scaled my heaven fortress? Ha! I took away Dame Justice for your treason ! And in her stead, I send you down the Law Her mothers were the furies, hellish trio. Her father was All-Father’s crushing curse ! Beneath her sway, soon shall ye howl and cry : ‘Oh Give us the pest ! Take back the Law—’tis worse ! This was a free land once in times Elysian. ’Tis now a despotism, rank and raw, Where women’s rights, and sneaking prohibition, Vile things of night, at last the daylight saw !

The Client. (His Last.) Once, upon a midday dreary, while I pondered, worn and weary, Over many a dry and dusty law tome, full of unlearnt lore, While I, poor young caseless lawyer, to King Hunger consecrated, Waited,—waited, waited—WAITED ! only this, and nothing more ; Suddenly, there came a tapping—for the first time some one rapping On my virgin office door ! “ ’Tis a client! Joy ! ” I shouted. “ Fiend of Famine, thou art routed.” Long enough has fortune pouted ! Gold and glory lie in store ! ” I recall, for I was sobah—this was in the damp Octobah, In the colds of Manitobah—and myself was coaled no more. Starving I, from day to morrow!—vainly had I tried to borrow ! —Thusly to my stomach’s sorrow, for the last ten days and four I had fed on calfskin mouldy—gnawed the hides of Kent and Gouldie, ’Since 1 needed not their core. Now you’ll comprehend the dancing of my heart, with joy entrancing Filled, its happy frisky prancing, When that rap came—at my door. Then, with voice all in a tremble, vainly seeking to dissemble : “ Come, come in ! ” I cried, and slowly open swung the rusting door. And the client stood before me, shedding Hope’s gold radiance o’er me, Tho’ his features, grim, distorted, wild and weird expression wore. —Till he spoke, I sat ecstatic—in a voice that shook mine attic, This he howled, and nothing more ! “ By the flaming system solar ! by the frozen vastness polar ! Doctor ! ! ! ! yank this hellish molar !!!!!!! Note.—This poem was the most original in form, matter and thought of the entire lot. It is really good. H. L. R. H.

He saw her face of rounded loveliness and began at once to wish that he might see it forever. She spoke to him in a voice that was all music, and he immediately conceived the hope that her tones would forever thrill his existence into life. He had been a skeptic, but now he saw an angel and reasoned that there was a home for angels and faith awoke within him. Her presence was the heaven to which his soul would fly and be at rest. They were gliding over the surface of the placid lake while heaven and earth conspired to throw around them the mantle of loveliness. Both were dreaming of the palace “ lifting to eternal summer its marble walls.” How cruelly their dream was soon to be interrupted ! The moon, leaving the fond embrace of the clouds, descended to the earth and began passionately to kiss the face of the waters. The maiden was greatly shocked at this act of lunar levity. She commanded him to row ashore. Landing they quickly turned their dorsal vertebra on this horrible scene and walked rapidly to the Duininr. He attempted to explain. “ The moon does not consider herself bound by the etiquette of earth. All heavenly bodies are. in fact, less punctilious than mundane damsels.” He illustrated : “ The stars continually wink at the reclining land or pillow their naughty heads on the bosom of the deep. Meteors shoot athwart the skies in pursuit of objects of attachment and consume themselves in their own passion. The sun,” he continued, “ rising from his oriental couch, pulls the robe of darkness from off the sleeping earth and tickles the ribs of the rock-ribbed hills until Aurora herself blushes for shame.” Explanations were in vain. They arrived at her home, and he took his leave without attempting to imitate the example of the moon. By the Fountain. I LINGERED too long by the fountain, The sunligth was pale in the west. And the far distant head of the mountain In a nebulas sapphire was drest. By the fountain that long had ceased playing, I lingered in languor divine— I knew that e’er long she’d be straying To the fountain, this sweetheart of mine. March 13—Bankhead fails to cut French. 119March 15—Dabney White is in the city. I lingered too long by the fountain. Tiie seabreeze was warm from the south, And its breath was an odorous chalice Forever upheld to my mouth. And 1 tasted the fullness of being In draughts like Falerman wine, But one thing of all things was lacking— And that was this sweetheart of mine. I lingered too long by the fountain, For her father came out in the yard, Made remarks concerning my presence In adjectives hurtful and hard, Spake of Towser,—and Towser appearing, I hastily hied me away. That I lingered no more by the fountain It is perfectly useless to say. J. R. Taylor. Now Poetic------Now Profane. Scene i. (In the Parlor. Mrs. White tending to Mr. White from the seene in ProivnPtn s “ Clive ” where Clive boldly defies the bully to take his life)— Bully—“ Did I cheat ? ” Clive—“Cheat you did, you know you cheated and this moment know as well As for me my homely breeding bids you shoot and go to Hell.” Scene ii. In the back yard. Johnny and Willie While are playing marbles-The follou'ing is heard:— “It’s my shot—” “ 'Tis not, it’s mine.” “ It's mine I know full well—” “ I know it’s mine and you are Cheating, but then,—shoot and go to Hell.” March 17—The wearers of the shamrock do not have a bloody battle on Lavaca Street. 20March 2t—Knox threatened with brain fever. The Plaint of the Third Class Bard. MUSK! loquacious, shrunk and shrill, Conic help prepare this pure poetic pill. () Muse ! thou know’st I love thy withered face ; So fill for me this short alotted space. () Muse ! It is no deadly enterprise to be ; No Irish brogue I’ll use, nor Germanic. O Muse ! plain United States the speech ; So come, I pray, and scratch and screech. O Muse ! No silly sappy song I sing, But a mighty, awful, curious thing. Pretty bird, I cannot thee excuse ; So come now Muse, O Muse! A-Muse. Let this be thy chiefest crowning task ; Perch upon thy bard—’tis all I ask. Sweet bird! sing, I pray, of those who pass : Sing—yea shrill! the noble Junior Class. Sweet mused the muse—her eyes are closed ; Enraptured there she stood enclosed. ‘•Thy theme’s too grand ! ” she, speechless.said— “The Junior Class—”—the little bird grew dead. F.

In the dusk and we were alone : And the winsome grace of her Spanish face Would have melted a heart of stone— And mine was not, as I listened In a dream to her whispered tone, Unmindful of all things about me, U-ubought of the grim chaperone ! March 29—Sammey Foster gets off a joke. 121March 30—Tillman begins his book : Three Times a Candidate. And somehow, I do not remember, Her little hand strayed into mine, And a something, I know not, Hashed into my soul, That seemed like a presence divine. And thus did we sit, while the sunlight Was dying away on the sands, Dream-wrapt in this innocent pleasure, Playing hands, playing hands, playing hands. ENVO V. We were playing hands, I have stated, Yet the pang which remembrance imparts When 1 think of that evening alone by the sea, Proves that was playing at hearts ! Sonnet to a Friend. [ FOUND in you my friend, the friend I sought: A genial spirit and a uliolesome mind. Not with the Age’s superstition blind : But freeest of the free in word and thought, And from your converse, 1 have sometimes caught Faint inspirations, such as seldom come, And vanishing, like some rare flower in bloom, Leave long the odor of the fragrance brought: And yet, within my soul there doth arise Another most transcendent quality That looms forever large before mine eyes, That binds me closer, day by day, to thee: Our shirts and collars are the same in size, Likewise our coatlets and our pantlets be! ______ J.
