There have been a number of additions to the Faculty of the University in the year 1S97-98. PROF. MARK HARVEY UDDELL was elected in June, 1S97. to fill the vacancy occasioned by the death of Dr. Waggener. Prof. Lid- dell is an A.B., A.M. of Princeton, and held a fellowship in English •during his last year at that institution. After leaving Princeton, he taught two years at Lawrenceville, N. J., and two years in Philadelphia. He then went to Europe, and studied English two years in Oxford and one year in Berlin. Since returning to America he has lived in Boston, and has been •engaged in editing old English texts for the McMillan Company. Asso- ciated with other distinguished scholars in England and America, he has just published an edition of the Globi Chaucer. Prof. Liddell is an enthusi- astic follower of the Oxford plan of studying the English language. Prof. W. S. SUTTON, A. M. (University of Arkansas), has been placed at the head of the re-established School of Pedagogy. Prof. Sutton has been superintendent of the Houston schools for the past ten years. So successful has been his administration that, according to a report issued by Dr. Y. T. Harris, United States Commissioner of Education, the Houston school system is ranked as the seventh most efficient in the United StaUs. 1 ' rof. Sutton ' s success as a practical schoolman is largely due to the fact that lie has always been a close student of the best theories of education. It is this combination of much practical sense with a modicum of theory that makes his work in the schoolroom particularly effective and successful. Prof. Sutton ' s election anil retention as a member of the Faculty of the University of Texas will prove an important factor in enlisting the sympathy and eo operation of the public schools of the State with the University. .1 As an associate of Prof. Sutton, the Regents have elected Dr. A. Cas- wei.i. Ellis, Ph. I)., (Clark University, Boston). Dr. Ellis is a specialist in psychology and child study. He is a young man, well posted in his subject, and a captivating k-eturer. Robert A. Thompson, M. A. (University of Texas), has been added to the Department of Engineering. Prof. Thompson has already had one year of service in the University of Texas as a teacher of engineering dur- ing the absence of Prof. Taylor in the year 1893-94. Since that time he has been engaged in the active field of railroad building, and resigned his work there only because he loved teaching and the ' Varsity more. William I,. Bray, M. A. (Indiana University), is now professor in charge ot the work in botany in the University of Texas. Prof. Bray has done work at Cornell University, the University of Indiana, Chicago Uni- versity and the University of Berlin. He will enter the examination for his doctorate in June next at the University of Chicago. The unworked field of Texas in botany offers Prof. Bray an excellent opportunity for achievement in his line. James Robinson Bailey, A. B. (University of Texas), Ph. D., ' 97 (University of Munich), comes back to his Alma Mater as instructor in Chemistry. He is a specialist in organic chemistry, and secured his doctor ' s degree upon brilliant original work done under Dr. Adolf von Beyer, reputed to be the master of organic research. Milton Brocket Porter, A. B. (University of Texas), Ph. D. (Har- vard University), received his appointment as instructor in mathematics in the University of Texas and donned his gown for his doctor ' s degree at about the same time. Dr. Porter ' s work at Harvard was of such high order as to win from his professors letters of recommendation and endorsement so flattering that we refrain from publishing them, wishing to spare his modesty. Dr. Porter ' s papers in mathematics are sought for publication by the leading mathematical journals of the country. William Tyler Mather, Ph. D., ' 97 (Johns Hopkins University), succeeded Prof. Northrup (who resigned in November, 1897) in the chair of physics. Dr. Mather was for one year a university scholar at Johns Hop- kins. During the last year of his connection with that institution, he held a fellowship in physics. He was then elected instructor in physics in the same institution, but resigned this place to assume his duties as professor of physics in the University of Texas, which place was tendered him by the Regents in December, 1897. Prof. Mather is enthusiastic in his praises of Texas and the opportunity for research work in his department of this University. He finds his school much better equipped than he expected, and promises soon to have the best appointed workshop in the South. Benjamin Wyche, B. L. (University of North Carolina), is the new librarian. He is quiet, modest and unassuming; thoroughly acquainted with the science of keeping in order an up-to-date library. At the same time he holds firm convictions that the greatest need of the University of Texas is for more books, and in this conviction there are many friends of the University who heartily concur. ' 9 WALTER FREDERICK Kki.i.v, 15. L. (Dartmouth), the new physical director, has met a much needed want at the University, and his presence has given an impetus to athletic interests which foretells a great improvement in the excellence of college sports. John Avery Lomax is the latest occupant of the peripatetic office of registrar. John C. SANER is the librarian of the law department. Pack T. Lomax is registrar of the law department. P$ edi©al department. WILLIAM SPENCER CARTER, was born in Pennsylvania. Previous to his medical study he was a close student of biology. He gradu- ated from the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania in 1890, and was awarded the Medical News prize for his thesis on " A Study of Heat Production and Heat Dissipation in the Normal and Febrile States. " Served as resident physician in the Philadelphia Hospital, and later in the Presbyterian Hospital. The latter position he resigned to accept a position as assistant in physiology in the University of Pennsylvania. His promotions in this University were quite rapid. He served successively as assistant demonstrator in pathology , assistant professor in comparative physiology, and assistant demonstrator of physiology. His Summer vaca- tions were spent in Europe, where he pursued original researches at the University of Berne. He has contributed many valuable articles based upon original research to the science of physiology, therapeutics and pathology. Both in public and private relations Professor Carter was popular because of the kindly in- fluence he exerted, because of his high sense ot the duties of life, and because of tin.- purity and earnestness of his convictions. Surely, the medical department of the University of Texas is to be congratulated upon securing Dr. Carter as professor of physiology. Conn L. MlLBURN was born in Missouri, but received his education in Texas. He graduated from the San Antonio High School in [895. He entered the Pharmacy School of U. T. in the fall of [895 and received the degree of Ph. G. in May, [897. He practiced his profession in San Antonio but a short while when he was elected to the chair of botany and demon strator of chemistry in the medical department of U. T. His earnest and untiring application to his life-work lias won for him the hi lu-st praise. DM • ' ' ■■ ' ■ :i:in Jambs Wharton McLaughlin was born in 1840, at Springfield, Ohio. He was educated in the public schools of Ohio, and began to read medicine in 1858. He attended a course in medicine at the Cincinnati College of Medicine. In 1861 he joined the First Kentucky Regiment of Confederate Infantry and served as Lieutanent in Company I). Later he joined Gilmore ' s Company of Scouts and afterwards served with Generals Morgan and Forrest. In 1865, he came to Texas and began a review of his medical studies. He attended a second course of lectures at the University of Louisiana, receiving th e degree of M. D. in 1867. In the same year was married to Miss Tabitha Bird. He practiced medicine in Fayettville until 1870, and since that time has practiced his profession in Austin. Dr. McLaughlin is a member and ex- president of The Texas State Medical Association, and also of The American Medical Association, and The Pan American Medical Congress, etc. In 1885 he made original reseaches in the bacteriology of Dengne Fever and read a re- port of same at The St. Louis Meeting of The American Medical Association. He is the author of a volume entitled " Fermentation, Infection and Im- munitv. " The book takes on special interest from the fact that his theory is entirely original and based upon modern teachings of allied sciences. Dr. McLaughlin was editor of Texas Sanitarium and Texas Medical Netcs. He severed his editorial connections when elected to the chair of Theory and Practice of Medicine in the Medical Department of U. T. 1 titsui 9 ttoaa» a fc ass of f 9 . § ffi cr . R. D.

' ' This adage is only partly true, so like an ambitious but illiterate merchant friend, I ' ' must lengthen it to fit my stock in store. This merchant, on pissing a scholarly friend ' s establishment, beheld over his door in glittering letters of gold (quite fitting, because most of our class are " gold -bugs " ) these words : Mens sana in corpore sano. He puzzled his brain for a solution of this sign-board ' s saucy enigma. At last, after a long process of conjectures along the philanthropic and economic principle of " the greatest good to the greatest number, " he formed a resolution and before many days this golden sign greeted his passers-by : Men? sand women ' s sana in corpore sano. Likewise, I, according to Art. xxxiii, Sec. 13, of our constitution, beg leave to amend the basic principles of general history to fit the con- ditions of a history greater by far — that of the Senior Class of the Univer- sity of Texas. Therefore, on the following adage shall I proceed : " His- tory is a record of the deeds of men and women. " How can I tell of such mighty deeds in two short pages ? Like all true histories, ours is based on fact — at least the men ' s part is ; the ladies ' , on fiction since their modesty withholds from your prying 1?! historian his longed-for data. In his effort to compress, the historian hopes to be pardoned if these facts are squeezed to the extent of becoming dry. Having canvassed the men after the fashion of a census taker 1 a most joyful and jolly job), behold what remarkable facts have come to light. (1). Our class is artistic, literary, scientific, and sure of the right way, be- cause it hasten applicants for A. 13., nine for B. Lit., seven for B. S., and three for C. K. (one of whom is our President 1, who are ready to survey that " straight and narrow way " that leads to the heights beyond. (2). We are not only scholarly now, but were before we came here, because ex- actly one half of us were graduates of High Schools or Colleges. That we ever were green Freshmen, we follow in the foot-prints of the Class oi ' 97 and most emphatically deny " from the begining even unto the end thereof. " We are, have been, and ever hope to be — unless we make a " final bust " — the proud Class of ' 98. (4). Bach of us 1 who used to be buys • now claims to be every inch a man, and I propose to prove it abund- antly from these facts: Our average age is - ' V years; weight, i.S.v- pounds; height, 5 feet 10 ' inches. Nine of us have paid our way through the University. Every mother ' s son of us declares himself to be quite hand- some. Twelve of us are church members. We are old enough to vote, and know how, too, because six of us favor Savers for our next Governor, two favor Crane, one favors Jester, and the rest are hoping that our Class Politician will graduate in time to make the gubernatorial race. As to the great money question, we are sound, because ten are gold standard men, six favor free silver, and the rest say: " Give us good money, and plenty of it. " We can prove our superiority from the standpoint of our forefathers — from nature as well as nurture — because in eight of us flows the blood of the sturdy, thinking Scotchman ; six of us get our wit and grit from the Irish; five get our " push " from the English; five get our per- severing and pains-taking qualities from the Germans ; and lastly four claimed to be of " American " ancestors, although your historian can certify that they have " evoluted " beyond the stage of hurling the bloody tomahawk or wearing feathers in their hair. (5). We are real University students, for most of us are pursuing lines of original investi- gation leading up to our already chosen professions. Seven will be teachers ; five, lawyers ; three, civil engineers ; and three, physicians. To prove that an enlightened heredity is potent, I record it that seven of us had fathers who were college graduates, the mothers of five were as fortunate, and both parents of three of us were. Yet, one more fact is necessary to explain our future longings ; nine of us confess that we are in love, and four are actually already engaged. Progress is our watch-word. Now, when the ladies realize how our names are to be handed down to posterity on these pages, bristling with fact and fun, methinks they will weep penitent tears because fiction must needs portray their many gifts and graces. Truly, I can say, in fact, that ten more studious, modest, and ac- complished young-ladies never took their diplomas. Since their average age is a profound and unknowable secret, I would not dare to intimate that the} ' are above " sweet-sixteen " — the reader must guess how many years the prefix sweet adds to sixteen. It is known that six of them belong to the church, and since none contend for " woman ' s rights, " it follows that none are " free thinkers. " For Governor, six favor Crane (because he is young and good-looking, I guess) ; three jolly, fun-loving girls favor Jester, and the two talkers favor Savers. On the money question, since five of them are so confiding — " restoring confidence " — the gentle beams from their sparkling eyes seem to say: " True as gold; " from the delight all the others take in strolls — though not alone — beneath the silver} ' queen of night, we guess they are bi-metallists. Of our ladies fair I had in mind many lovely graces and kindly deeds yet to relate, when Mr. Dan C made a heart- felt point and cried : " It is enough. " Who dares declare: " Thus endeth the History of gS ? " Why, we have not yet had our Commencement. But we have not the slightest idea of " final exemptions. " When our great and honored Presi- dent Win-ston(e) calls the last roll (et tit, Brute ' ) and we receive our hard- earned diplomas, it will be with victorious smiles and laudable ambitions that we face the world to fight life ' s battles and do noble deeds as becomes men and women of the University of Texas.

IN THE year of the existence of our University the twelfth, and of the history of the Class of ' 99 the first, in the ninth month, on the twentieth and first day of the month, there appeared in the court of the temple of wisdom, before the altar of matriculation and the keeper of the sacred scrolls, some five score trembling Freshmen ; and when they had made their offer- ing of fifteen pieces of silver they went their way into the temple. And because that they were simple and ignorant, knowing not the saying that " He that increaseth knowledge, increaseth sorrow, " they gave themselves into the hands of the Profs, and did study diligently. But knowledge came not, and wisdom lingered, and while they lingered, waiting for both, the tempter went among them and persuaded them that they should organize and be sociable, after the manner of other classes. But when they had come together and would have elected a chief, the foot ball giants fell upon them and smote them, and taking from them the scrip that they had received at the altar of matriculation, put them to flight. But again the tempter spake, and when they had assembled the " Frats " came and took them in bondage ; for the " Fiats " were cultivating a new plant called CACTUS ' 96, and had need of tin- Freshmen ' s labor. Being released from this greivous servitude, the class tried yet once again to effect an organization, and it seemed, verily, that they would succeed, but final exams enveloped them, cast their shadows round about them, and the Freshmen were no more. Howbeit some rose again after ninety days, and became Sophomores. Now the Sophomores are a wise people, whose reputation was established of old ; and this tribe was in no way behind the nation as a whole. For even in their infancy they essayed not to retain their library scrip, but gave it immediately to the athletics fund ; and seeking out the Annual board, they paid their devoirs of their own accord. In all this they were very wise. but, being Sophomores, they needed not to study, and life became exceed d m ing monotonous with no collector to bestir them, so that, not of their own will, but by lack of occupation, they were forced into the giddy whirl of society. And they made great joy with their magnificent receptions, and poetic, moonlight explorations of Lake McDonald, and the name of their generous hospitality was spread afar — albeit at this day it is little remembered. But an evil time came, and this light-hearted people got them into the land of the Juniors, where all men labor, and the wisdom of the sometime Sophomore availeth not ; for the foot ball fiend maketh his permanent rest- ing place there, and the compilers of Cactus ' 98 are his immediate neighbors ; and many other annoyances peculiar to Juniors are there. And they saw that of trouble there was no end, and that all labor is vanity ; wherefore they forgot their glorious record of the past and the shining hopes of the future, being discouraged : and the Spirit of Indolence descended heavily upon them , so that they became as those who seem deep asleep yet all awake, and they will work no more. Not all have fallen, however. There still remain a faithful few in Israel, who shall redeem from oblivion the Class of ' 99. If you would know them turn the page. (@ lass of ' cc. Offi eps.

UtCT j, I TAKE it that a history should he an account of the effections and defec- tions of any human organization. The effections of the " Sophs. " have been few and unimportant — such as sundry courses in " Math., ' ' Latin and Greek, etc. But they have effected the crowning consummation of their lives in passing that heterogeneous concatenation of incongruities styled " Fresh. " English. The enormity of such an act exhausted the mental pabulum of most of our members, consequently the defections this year have been numerous. For instance, some of us have failed to grasp the true meaning of " A Study of Dolls. " Kant is easy; integral calculus ridicu- lously so, and translating Sophocles a soft snap, but the profound erudition, the esoteric learning contained in the aforesaid disquisition upon the com- panion of our maiden days was too much for us. But our watchword has been: " In the illuminated dictionary of Sophdom there is no such word as ' bust. ' " Consequently we have not done so badly on the whole, even though we could not recognize the " whatness " and " where foreness " of the pedagogical-psychologic dissertation upon artificial infants. A History of the " Soph. " Class, without an extended inquiry into the Illustrious Lives of Our Two Immortals, L. Maury Kemp I I with- hold the name for the initial " I. " because it stands tor Kemp) and H. Gail Borden, would be no history at all. Mr. Kemp is a lineal descendant of the great Maury of geography fame and Thomas A ' Kenipis : but that is not Mr. Kemp ' s fault, and we hope that no one will blame him for it, for although he was present at his birth and a well-meaning infant, yet he suffered the disadvantage of being helpless. Nor do we wish it to be thought for an instant that Mr. Kemp is even attempting to follow the precepts laid down in his immortal ancestor ' s celebrated work. Mr. Kemp, unlike most boys, grew up unaided. This was a first ex- hibition of that originality that has characterized Mr. Kemp throughout his life. At the early age of ten he entered politics, and has been there ever since. His first office was " chief canner " to the El Paso Dog Canner ' s Association, and he still regards that office as the highest and most delecta- ble which he has yet filled, and he is prouder ol it than he i of that proud patronymic " the Richard Croker of ' Sophanimany . ' 3 1 . It is said that politics make strange bed -fellows, but the truth of the adage cannot be appreciated until you know Kemp and Borden. Now Gail is not a breezy youth, as is implied by his name ; but, on the other hand, his every action is characterized by a child-like blandness — and this is even true of his foot ball playing. Mr. Borden traces his descent (or, as he would term it, his ascent) from Gail Borden — he of the condensed milk, the greatest infant food on the mar- ket, not excepting Mellin ' s. Mr. Borden possesses a condensed physicpne, probably due to heredity. He, like Lemp Kemp, is a politician inately. I have neglected to state that each wire on the " Soph. " class has two handles. One manipulates the fair co-ed, the other the sterner-ed without the co. Gail pulls the female wire and Maury the male wire, and the respec- tive attachments at the other end immediately begin to play — not hands O, Mad ame K., but Punch and Judy. Gail is an athlete — in his own estima- tion. He can vault — when the line is on the 21 -inch mark. He can put the shot — size, n ounces. He can jump — 2 feet 9 inches. In fact, he is re- markable in his way, and it is with regret that we cease recounting his accomplishments owing to a lack of space. As a histoiy of Washington is a history of the United States, so we re- gard a history of Kemp and Borden a history of the " Soph. " class. And thus considering our duty done — not well, but to the extent of our ability — I cry " peccavi " and quit. ©lass of oi. Class Colors : — Old gold and royal purple. leers. First Te. Scott W. Key. .

As early flowers in the century to come, Famed poets, statesmen, they will be. They study until the bright sun ' s rays beam Xo longer from their gold home in the west ; They study until their weary heads dream Of themselves, with Greek and Math, so blest. Should life in gloom hide their rosy bowers, And many a dreary storm blow loud, Yet they will bravely search for flowers And merrily laugh beneath the cloud. And to them will still be deeper thought, As ever onward the years will go ; And to them will be greater virtue brought By time ' s great wave on its study flow L. M. L. isto V THE history of an organization is usually written — if written at all — after some one or more of its members have become famous. Not so with the Freshman Class of ' 98. We are, as yet, unrenowned ; but on the strength of the fact that each of us possesses an almost unlimited amount of versatile talent we have been requested, by kind and appreciative friends, to give the world at large some information concerning ourselves. Even before we had organized as the " Class of 1901 " and had made all of the arrangements necessary for the success of such an organization, we had been recognized as the most promising class of students in the Univer- sity. Since then, our history has been not so much that of class meetings — though they were presided over by competent and impartial officers, and were so interesting as to draw large audiences — as it has been that of con- stant effort on our part to suppress the too frequent exhibition, in our university work, of the talent of which we have spoken. Talent, did we say? No! Genius, great and unmistakable. Genius, most difficult to repress. Genius, which we strove to divert by brilliant receptions in its honor; by wheeling in Hyde Park on moonlight evenings; by rowing on Lake McDonald; and by driving to Mount Bonnell. Genius which we attempted to vent in dancing; in gymnasium work ; in tennis and base ball : in " rooting " vociferously for " Our Foot Ball Team ; " and in vigorously " raising our voices to Heaven ' s dome, in sweet melodious song " when e ' er we chose — regardless of the hour. Genius which we sought to propi- tiate by such ethereal offerings as cake and cream ; olives, salted almonds, and dainty sandwiches; and — most ethereal of all — stale bread, and hash. But our greatness was incorrigible. It would persist, to the alarm oi cei tain ' Varsity professors, in making unexpected assertions ot its existence by expressing an English-idiom in another language; by accurately defining space, distance, a straight line, etc.; by pronouncing historical names with correctness of an antiquarian : or by deliberately observing every item of " form, " in some English production, 42 In our efforts to prevent the too frequent recurrence of such assertions we may have played a few (?) pranks, but we have been, withal, such sweet, unconceited children that we have won for ourselves the love — the pure and lasting love — of all who have been associated with lis. Where, in the great U. of T., is a professor who has not told us repeatedly of his earnest desire that at least a few of us would remain with him for another year. Certainly some of those in authority will be sorry to hear that we have become Sophomores — so greatly will they miss the quietness of our class meetings. Even the Junior Laws and our associates of the Academic department will regretfully remember the afternoons — now gone forever — spent so pleasantly listening to our calm and dignified debates on informal questions, as, ' ' Shall a Freshman allow himself to be called ' so green that he ' d be mistaken for grass ? ' " Yet one wicked Soph., despite the the pleasure and profitable instruc- tion that we must have afforded him, is reported to have said that we are not lovable — though the truth of the contrary has been proven — and that it would take an unconscionable time to hammer us into shape. Perhaps fo ; but bronze — the " better kind, " the " genius-tempered " — is one of the most valuable of materials, in the artist ' s eye. We acknowledge that we are the largest and freshest mass of metal ever bequeathed to the University of Texas at one time ; but we hope, in all earnestness, to be the greatest and most perfect group ever touched by an artist ' s hand when we are shown to the world in the first year of the new twentieth century. i INTERIOR OF UNIVERSITY.

JOHN NAYERY MOLAX relates that a deaf mute on one occasion said to a blind man, " Get off the earth, my boy, Austin aint big enough for you. " The Senior Engineers of ' 98 in assuming direction and management of The Trans-continental Airway running " double daily " ships between Dime Box and St. Elmo, made a twentieth century applica- tion of the advice of the talkative gentleman. President Nowlin sat back in the red velvet seat of the smoker devour- ing the stump of a " U. S. Five " as his mind wandered back to his college days and especially to the year he finished school. General Manager Pfeiffer having stopped at the " First and Last Chance " in Fairview Park, was in a talkative mood. Chief Engineer Parker was reading " Otto. " Said Prexy. with the rising inflection, " have you heard of Prof. Taylor, lately ? What ever became of him ? " " Why, " said Otto, " I heard last year that he was drowned trying to " measure the flow " of Campbell ' s and Brown ' s jaw works, already. You remember when they were Freshmen, yet, the} ' suffered with chronic ' squabbling. ' " " And where are Ike} ' ? " said Nowlin. " From the abnormal development of their disposition to ' fuss ' I would say they made prize fighters, " said the Chief, looking up from an old and much read copy of Qou I ' adis which he held sacred to the memory of Nowlin, the " butcher, " who fell out of one of the Trans-continental ' s ships on her " trial trip, " and who having been injured thereby, sued the com- pany and obtained a judgment As a result he is now President Nowlin and the chief delights to remind him of the days of his butcherhood and the way he became an Airway President. " Have you fellows heard of Prof. Thompson — Prof. Rat, I might say, " said the President, not noticing the book the chief was reading. " I hear he got a fine job in some engineering school on a boss work on the ' Elastica, ' " he continued. The manager and the chief fainted simul- taneously. Prexy nearly choked on the word, but recovered and brought the chief around with a bottle of " Old Bourbon, " extracted from the pistol pocket of the Executive. The stuff was the gift of Col. J. P. Daly, sometime professional ballplayer, now City Engineer of Paris (Texas). The manager " came to " when the porter stuck his head in the door and shouted " Lover ' s Lane ! 47 The president resinned his paper : the chief lit a cigar and took up the thread of the story he was reading : the manager lay back in his seat in a semi-conscious state mumbling snatches from Einer Must Heiraten. Pres- ently the manager and the chief were startled to their feet by an explosion On the part of the president, now a base ball fiend, who was reading the Sporting News. " By Johnson, The Theory of Arches. I V tensio sickness ! Say fel- lows, " said he, " Si Pinson ' s playin ' left field in the Atlantic League ! " You don ' t say, " flatly spoke the chief without looking up. " Das: is mil einerlei, " said the manager, dryly. " Who ' s a lie, " said the president, making for the management. The chief separated them. " Ah, sit down, Prexy, " said the manager : " if you had half as much in your head as Howard thinks he ' s got you ' d understand me, yet. " By the way, " said the Airway magnate, letting his curiosity get the better of his anger, " where ' s Howard now ? And there ' s Dobbins, Rowe, Miller, Dibrell, Wirtz " " One at a time, " broke in the manager, sarcastically : " we are not dragons with half a dozen heads to talk at once. Besides, we are not walk- ing directories of the universe. " " Well, I ' ll be darned, " said the executive, flatly. " I thought you were. ' ' " Howard is staff correspondent of the Engineering News for Jack County, " said the chief, trying to interest the combatants. " He spoke as if he thought he ought to be editor-in-chief of that paper. " " Well, well, " said Prexy, quickly. " I have some letters in my pocket for you to read, chief. " Just then the " butch " passed through with an armful of books, one of which he placed on the seat beside the management. The title read : " Lectures on the Evils of the Tobacco Habit, " by Rev. Samuel C. Dob- bins, C. K. ( " Christian Kndeavorer). " These letters, " continued the president, " are from the fellows I was just asking about. They are applying for jobs as assistant engineers on the Maintainence of Way, as if an airway had any such- " The sentence was never finished. The ship lurched and a crash fol- lowed. She had run into the dome of the Capitol. When the debris was removed from the officials the chief was still reading Quo I ' adis, the manager held in his hand the letters which had been filed on a piece of heavy steel wire that came near ventilating the management. The president, who thought he heard Gabe ' s trump, was found crawling on the outside of the present from the Paris Engineer. " For, " said he, when speaking of it afterward, " I was afraid that 1 might be searched at the entrance and a bottle would be evidence against me. I hated to leave as good an article as that behind. I would have given half my interest in the Airway for a clove about that lime, and that aint no lie. " 48 _ INTERIOR or AUDITORIUM. INTERIOR OF AUDITORIUM 98. First ' Term , C. E. Spalding.

No longer is that history sufficient which contains and consists in a bare record of men and events. The historian must chronicle the development and progress of political, literary, scientific and religious thought — must reveal the spirit of the nation and the age. What then constitutes the history of a class ? Shall the historian turn statistician and record the names of the men. their place of birth, their residence, age, and the location they have chosen for the practice of their profession ? We have good names on our roll, but, " what ' s in a name? " Who can judge of a man ' s character and capacity for work from knowing his place of birth and residence ? Age, calculated in years, months and days, can tell us nothing of one ' s real age, measured by the standard of conduct of body and mind. Few men in the Law Class of 1S98 are so old in ways and demeanor as the member of that class who is, so far as years go, the youngest. Shall the history be a mere laudation of the class — as is too frequently the case ? The reader, forming his estimate of the spirit of the class from the work of the historian, forms in such case an opinion far from favorable. How lovingly does the historian linger in thought over the class battles and the class triumphs. (We promptly forget the class defeats.) How proudly, how enthusiastically do we discourse to all about what " a fine Junior Class was that of last year. " And how proudly and enthusias- tically we shall next year discourse of our record as Seniors. Yet what have we done ? A class aged two years to be " immortalized " in history ! Who would think of becoming biographer of an infant two years old. Truly, the historian had better been a prophet. How seriously we take our woik here, and yet, how like a frolic it has all been. Just a series of foot ball games, let us say, with the attendant practice and training. The game with " Partnership, " with " Corporations, " with " Equity, " " Bills and Notes, " " Constitutional Law, " " Real Estate, " " Insurance " and " International Law. " Anxious times there were as the 55 dates of these games rolled around, but at every match the team won a safe if not a brilliant victory, with few injuries tu players. Perhaps the closest contest was with Equity. Day after day during the Fall and Winter the class assembled on the athletic field and with our reserved and loved Judge Gould as coach, captain and centre, spent an hour and a half in assiduous practice. Many were the fumbles on the snap back and the passes. Many the holes in the line ; often did the runner by injudicious work cover much territory and exhaust himself, but make no gain. The historian vividly recalls the last practice before the match : the class seemed to have " gone to pieces, " for never had it made so many fumbles or done such poor running. Serious apprehensions were entertained as to the out- come of the great game. But when the dust of conflict cleared, it was learned that we had done as well as any previous class, while Waggenerhad scored the best run ever made in a game with Equity. Fifty men going out from the State University, and entering upon a profession affording one of the widest fields now open for influencing for better or worse the progress of the world ! What account will the Law Class of 1898 give of itself ? What shall its history he ? Who can tell? 56 ©lass of 99- ®ffte seps. First Term. Rudolph Kleberg, William Pikrson, J.J. CYPERT, . President.

ON September the twenty-seventh, eighteen hundred and ninety-seven, the Junior Law Class assembled in their room, where they were welcomed by short addresses from each member of the Law Fac- ulty. They were advised as to the work they would shortly undertake, and informed that the motto of the Junior Class should be Mvltum non Multa. A few days later the class was organized with a membership of sixty - seven. This organization was comprised of members from every part of Texas, besides representatives from five other states. These young men who had decided to pursue the study of law had been engaged formerly in various pursuits — some as school teachers, editors, merchants, and farmers, while others were just from college. As first Class President, Mr. Rudolph Kleburg was unanimously chosen, and the dignity with which he presided, the wise suggestions he made for the welfare of the class, to say nothing of his stylish appearance with freshly-combed hair, convinced the class that they had made a wise selection. During Mr. Klelmrg ' s administration the class adopted many measures for the furtherance of their interests, such as having a holiday upon the day of the principal foot ball game. The next president of the class was Mr. John Brackenridge, who e hobby is Blackstone. Mr. Brackenridge has done great service for the class in aiding them to secure their books at greatl r reduced prices. The third and present president is Mr X. A. McXeal, the trend of whose conversation is generally along the lines of Populism and the future platform of that party. Mr. McNeal has made a first-class president besides serving with honor and dignity as judge of the moot-court. The class work has been very profitable, beginning as it did with the foundation of the law, and gradually working its way up to thai of the present day. Under the instruction of Judge Gould, who is one of the ablest jurists of the present time; Judge Townes, whose record on the bench is unexcelled, and Professor Batts, whose annotated statutes of Texas have made him pop- ular as an author, the class have made great progress. Besides their class work the members of the Junior Class have figured prominently in every enterprise undertaken by the student body. In the literary societies they have entertained the academies with words of wisdom ; on the base ball diamond they carry their team to victory ; on the gridiron it is they who put the ball on the enemy ' s territory ; and when these battles are ended it is the Junior Law Quartette that sings of the victories won and the praises of the conquering heroes. In conclusion we wisli to the Junior Law Classes that are to be that they may reach the standard of the Junior Class of Ninety-eight, and to the Senior Class we hope they may gain the fame of the Senior Class of Ninety- nine.

AT all, especially at medical colleges, the graduating class is the one that, in the eyes of the public, is of most interest. Upon me has fallen the honor — the duty of recording some of the important events in the history of the Class of ' 98. The merry Autumn of ' 95 witnessed the aggregation in the halls of the University of a hundred as true representatives of youthful manhood as may be found in our bonnie Southland. Each countenance was radiant with energy; each heart was buoyant with fond hopes; each soul was brimming over with thoughts of a glorious future, inspired by the parting kiss of a loving mother or the tender words of a loyal sweetheart. Only three short years have passed, yet what a change ! The noble one hundred have been reduced to forty. The conquering youth is beginning to realize his true value, and assumes his proper sphere in the rank and file of humanity. The once boyish countenance, ever betraying the inner man, has assumed a graver, a more dignified mien, as well as — a beard. As individuals, we each remember how, from 8 A. M. to 6 P. M., we trudged the toilsome halls of knowledge, gathering a formidable array of facts and theories to be conned over at our respective abodes by the light of the midnight lamp. By the use of the scalpel and dissecting forceps, we familiarized ourselves with the intricacies of the human body. Broken test- tubes, stained and corroded fingers, with an erstwhile explosion (there were many who " busted " in this branch), a laboratory dense with fumes rivaling those of the bottomless pit, told of our researches in chemistry. A score of mandibles, clad in four- tailed bandages, showed where our ranks had " stood " in the struggle with the multi-syllabics of the U. S. P. but all this was over at last, and we entered our third year with thoughts of pride for the past and of hope for the future. Now began our interesting and instructive work in the hospital. We attended clinics, administered anaesthetics, assisted in operations and visited patients in the wards. Here our eyes were trained to grasp and group the various symptoms, subjective and objective, which enable us to recognize morbid processes ami structural changes occurring in the human body during disease. Our hands were trained to use the instruments of precision : our lingers became endowed with the tactui eruditus so necessary in our calling. The lame, the halt and tin- blind, the sad and sorrowful, received from us that tender care which characterizes the embryo physician. Often, too (let us hope not too often 1, we were present at the bedside when grim Death how red near with his icy breath. But even though lie claimed his own, our grief was not unpalliated because of the thought that we should meet again, aye ! should meet above — in the dissecting-room. 66 • As a class, I may mention that while yet Juniors ours was the first to effect permanent organization. The example has been followed by all the classes in the medical department. A perusal of our minutes shows two resolutions in particular that are worthy of emulation. These were enacted during that period of uncertainty known as the yellow fever epidemic. One of these resolutions was a request that the school should not be discontinued on account of the fever; the other, that should any of our number fall sick, we would render them such necessary personal assistance as the occasion might demand. Apropos of the latter resolution, a committee was appointed which faithfully attended the sick of our class who were suspected of having yellow fever concealed about their persons. Others of the class tendered their services to the Board of Health, and one of our number was selected to take charge of a case pronounced by Dr. Guiteras to be a genuine type of the disease. There were still " others " who, foreseeing the action of the class, preferred not to endanger the lives of their comrades by contracting the disease and accordingly left the city at once — braving the dangers of being eaten alive by mosquitos, stricken down by the deadly hematozoa of malaria as they marched through dismal swamps to the tune of double- barrelled shot-guns in the hands of quarantine officers, new in their vocation but terribly in earnest in the execution of their duties. At the beginning of the present session our class resolved itself into a medical society, which has proven a very interesting feature of our present year ' s work. An exhaustive review of the subject of medical ethics by Dr. Paine w T as presented to the society at our request. From our ranks were drawn the two editors and the business manager of the University Medical, and it is to the energy and brains of this trio that this, our journal, owes much of its success. My history is done. The Class of ' 98 as such will soon be no more. Whatever minor differences may have arisen among us here, we feel sure that as alumni our efforts will be unanimous in promoting the best interests of our beloved Alma Mater. T. D. Berry, Historian.

Aye, for in the whole life of the Medical Department " Ninety and Nine " is the greatest class that ever happened. All the professors sing our praises. From the dim and distant past no grades have excelled ours, and when the last wave of Time breaks on the shores of Eternity the U. of T. will be here then — ours will not have been excelled. That may sound like a bombastic boast, a figment of fancy, a roving romance or persiflage ; but the writer is no idle dreamer, he is the duly, unanimously elected class historian, and what he records are steel-chilled facts. Yes, if there be one who doubts this, let him consult the class and he will be surprised at their willingness to attest to its authen- ticity. For, through all the viscus and volatile elements of adversity and variance, so to speak, we have stood together, and it is this unanimity that has won for us every contested point. Even the mighty, politic, god-like, Dean went down in defeat before our combined efforts — and Clopton got his cane. In the beginning we stood one hundred and forty strong, but before the end of our first year ' s work some had " fallen out at retreat " and strayed into paths that seemed to lead to greener pastures. The winds of Autumn had scarce begun to whisper through the dead leaves of Summer when we were again in the palace of our first love, our vacation having been pleasantly spent ; our return, uneventful save for the annoying tentacles of that Octopain monster virus called Quarantine. Of course, the one thought uppermost in all minds was : who lias returned ? In due time the gong sounded and the host assembled. There was the King with his Jester, his Baker, his Taylor and the Ladies of his court ; there was Durham with his precious shell, picked from the Greenwood (ed) Fairbanks of tin- Brooks in Nolanfd) ; their was Bl(o unt, Dudgeon, ami Lenert who made his pet Wolf eat a Collard : there was tin- Nave who attempted to Stone the House of Merritt when up walked Judge Lynch and said, " I ' ll kuhl here — " how Wille ! — and there wen- others, numbering in all eighty- five Scarcely had the Moses with his Caduceus smote the rock of Knowledge; scarcely had the famished disciples tasted the Galenic stream when rumors became rife of that Centaur of disease, Bacillus Sanarelli. Then indeed was confusion worse confounded. Could Aesculapius have witnessed some of us falling out of town he would have shed great tears of scalding blood to blot out the record. Only a few remained — one among whom I was which — but, whether actuated by true loyalty or inability to flee, is not mine to say. Time wore on, as Time is wont to do and, investigation showed the dreaded monster to be but a McLaughlin Coccus (Dengue). Fear faded and the largest, most cosmopolitan and democratic aggregation of student- doctors ever assembled at this Medical Mecca were soon re-united and are to-day fast becoming servants of Science. My work is done ; but one plea in parting : If you fail in Chemistry, gird up your loins and " make it up. " " Come back — come back. " " Zum Heimgang, auf Wiedersehen. " — ' 99. T ( y Q§§ 0) 01, R.

HE Freshman, though he be small in the eyes of the Senior Classman; though he be looked down upon and scoffed at as one who is starting out into his life ' s work and into a profession of which he knows compara- tively little ; yet he is of the greatest importance in every college, for as we all know, he is the material from which all Seniors are made. The Medical Class of 1901 are the Freshmen and the following lines express the " make-up " of the class : Though our outward appearance may look tough, Beyond all doubt we are " the stuff. " As from little acorns grow big trees, So from us Freshmen grow M. D ' s. From this class the historian has been chosen to record its history, which must needs be brief. Not much has happened to disturb the tran- quility of the class. No deeds of valor have been done by us, but each has striven to do his best. The class began the year with a force of fifty-six members, each of whom seemed determined to overcome the difficulties which lay before him. The class is not so large as usual, there being a course which kept many from matriculating and that was the " yellow fever scare. " Some of the members reached Galveston in a time of quarantine, not knowing as they left their homes but that they would have to walk the last half of their way to the gulf and then, like Leander, swim the waves to Galveston. Oral examinations were soon upon us, and here we know that our reader cannot sympathize with us unless he has undergone similar ordeals and tests ; unless he has had that same indescribable feeling of woe and terror on an oral examination, that great instiller of the thought that for- getfulness is the chief of sins. Every member of the class had to travel the same route, and encounter the same terror-strikers. You know the rules governing the Freshman Class have no exceptions. At an early date, recognizing the importance of such a step, we formally organized and elected our officers who served their term of office in the interest of the class. Our ranks have not been thinned out to any great extent, though examinations and other troubles have come thick and fast. Now the year is drawing to a close and in less than a mouth the " Finals " will be upon us, when many of us will have to burn the midnight oil. And now as we lay aside the pen and give our place to the class of 1902, we hope that they will have as prosperous a year as we, the class of 1901 . J. R. Elliott, Historian. 73 BATH I NG SCENE.

SENIOR FHARMACY CLASS. 5 Uvtor j, ANOTHER year of joy, peace and happiness, such as only the college boy enjoys, has almost passed, and we, the Class of ' 98, are near the goal of our dreams and ambitions. Our class of twenty and ■one has lost nine of its members. Some of the missing ones are rolling pills in different parts of the state; others were not equal to the battles with the work placed upon them and have sought other fields of labor ; others still have fallen a victim to that demon that haunts our dreams, and walks with us in our daily work — even now he sleeps not, but when we who are left are dreaming that our labors are nearly ended, we hear a whispered word that sounds like diaethylsulphondimethylmethane and arouses us to re- newed energy. Our class is honored this year by the addition of a New York pharmacy youth, who finishes his course with us. The " Brownies still remain and are striving patiently to clim b the ladder — not of success, but the one that reaches the shelf bottles. The tall German, who loves his pretzel, limburger and beer, talks and fights while others play. The gesticulating little Frenchman, the dudish ranchman, who tells us the newest cut in clothes ; the curly haired A . and M. boy, who needs no description ; pretty Sam, and brave Will, the spunky man with the moustache, the gentleman from " Hico, " and a few others, still are here, so the class still has a fair representation of all nations, kinds and classes of men. We have learned a few things this year that it would be well for our followers to avoid, so that when they reach the pinnacle of success as Seniors they can pursue their way with untroubled feelings. We present to you a band of loving brothers, who have dwelt in harmony (?) for two years. No word of scorn or hatred has passed our lips, and we beseech you to follow this example of the " Noble Twelve. " Let no bottles or beakers fly at each other ' s heads ; let nothing tempt you to have sticky fingers when handling your classmates ' apparatus : swear not, ami be sure that your conduct in the laboratory is exactly as you would have it in your drug store. And Juniors be careful not to be led astray by your Seniors. We begun our year under difficulties. Perhaps some remember of a sudden journey toward Fort Worth, and others a camping trip on a lone island with little to eat and less to drink. You remember the recreant lecturer who never came back, and the many other disadvantages. Nevei tbeless, the end of our labors is in sight, and we will soon be out upon life ' s sea, preparing concoctions for the yellow fever fiend and perhaps for wounded soldiers. May each one of us reap a rich reward according as he has labored, and may a feeling of true friendship for our fellow students exist forever. No more histories of this famous class will be written; so, we will bid adieu to all, and may the blessings of mankind, especially oi pharmacists, rest upon yOUT head.

HE Students ' Council is an organization of the whole student body. To bring the several classes of pharmac} ' and medicine into closer communion and fellowship, to facilitate the discussion and transaction of whatever business may concern the general student body, and to afford a necessary channel of communication with the Faculty and the Board of Regents, whenever occasion for such intercourse may arise, was the purpose of its establishment and is the purpose of its continuance. Its history dates from the 26th day of April, 1894, and the current being the fourth year of its existence, the record of its past must be brief. Summed up in a few words, it may be stated that the Students ' Council, from its incipiency up to the present time, has supported every measure favorable to the welfare of the student body ; that it has sought to promote student enterprise, and that it has on several occasions actively participated in carrying out the plans and projects of the Faculty and Regents. It was provided by the founders of the Council that one of its purposes should be the editing and publishing of a monthly medical journal, to be entitled The University Medical . During the past three years such a journal has been successfully published. It enjoys a wide circulation and may with credit be compared with any other medical publication of this country. There are three regular meetings of the Council during each year, special meetings being called by the president whenever occasion arises. The officers are elected semi-annually, and are chosen indiscriminately from the several classes of medicine and pharmacy. The entire student body constitutes its membership, every student of good standing being ipso facto a member of the Students ' Council. Having, as above indicated, satisfactorily accomplished the purpose and function for which it was originally instituted, the Students ' Council soon won and has since held recognition and approval from the Faculty and University authorities, and to it, as their only official organization, all matters and communications pertaining to the students of this department are properly referred.

Its object is to promote the spiritual life of the University students and to help them live as they should while pursuing their college course. Several years ago it undertook to furnish a building, equipped with all that a young man would need while away from home. The amount then raised for this object is now out at interest, waiting for the time when there will be enough to begin work on a good building. What the Association needs is a building with baths, library, reading-room, amusement-room, parlor, assembly hall, and reception rooms — in a word, an attractive place for the young men to spend their leisure time and to find some recreation when needed. Other College Associations are getting buildings; we feel that we must have one. We hope to see this accomplished by the help of our friends. This is certainly a good opportunity for anyone who has the desire and ability to bless the young men of Texas. For further information, address the President of the University Y. M. C. A., Austin, Texas. Our Association was represented at the Third International Convention of the Student Volunteer Movement for Foreign Missions held at Cleveland, Ohio, February 23-27, 1898, and is at present helping in the support of the Y. M. C. A. work in Cevlon. fW y. |% ©• f - of the | eoi«l ©epe, rtment. FOUNDED JANUARY 20, i! ,|hsbtke (!)ffi ecps. F«Vi Term. T. B. Stephenson, J. K. Wilson, G. A. Wedemeyer, F. P. Miller, M. L.

THE want of such an institution as the Athenaeum was not " long- felt " in University circles, for our constitution dates back to the realization of those hopes cherished by the pioneers of our state, when in their wisdom, by such appropriations through constitutional pro- vision, they secured to their posterity the inestimable heritage of a means for lofty culture. Born under the most auspicious circumstances, this most historic of the University ' s organization has been as phenomenal in Hs ad- vance as it has been prolific of beneficial results and lofty in its ideals. Rich in traditions, she is to-day at the summit of her glory, abler than ever before to defend those traditions and to maintain her incontestable right to a recognized supremacy. Noble in ancestry, she is worthier now than at any previous time of that brilliant galaxy of jurists and statesmen who have from time to time gone forth from her tutelage to take rank among the fore- most of the land — to fight over again those battles whose tactics have become so familiar from constant practice in the miniature fights of the society hall. These heights have not been attained, however, without effort. Institutions cannot more than individuals float serenely away to enduring fame on flowery beds of ease. Every success inevitably presupposes some discour- aging reverses, some disappointed hopes. 1 taring her brilliant career. ' ' The Athenaeum " has not only met successfully in contest all rivals of a like character to her own, but she has also combatted all such opposing influ- ences as athletics, society fraternities, and the numerous other attrac- tions of university life. From these conflicts she lias emerged with renewed strength and confidence ; ascending kite like against the winds of adversity to noble attainments to more enviable tame. rtfc usk. First 7 rim.

O. 3 110 EPUSK IT is with a feeling of pride that we who are interested in the literary soi i eties are permitted to see them at present in better working order than they have been for years. The united enthusiasm and interest of a few members have caused the rolls to assume larger proportions than they have had within the memory of our oldest members. We feel that a very important part of the training necessary for a man of affairs is to be acquired in the literary societies. We here learn much about the nature of man which we could not learn elsewhere. We are thus enabled to manipulate men, or, at any rate, to adjust ourselves to our envir- onment in such a way as to cause less friction in the moving of the social organism in which we are placed. It is in literary societies that some of our greatest men have received their first impulses to greatness. The members of The Rusk offer no apologies for being proud to know that, though The Rusk is only fifteen years of age, some of the leading men of the State are found among her ex-members. Is it not inspiring to us to know that Hon. L. T. Dashiell, Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Twenty-Fifth Legislature, was once president of The Rusk ? Or that Hon. J. A. Beall, State Senator from Waxahachie, learned his first lessons in parliamentary practice within the halls of The Rusk ? But it is not characteristic of a progressive people to look too much to the past. We see what our predecessors have done, and we can best show our appreciation of their accomplishments by emulating their example. Were it not that so many avenues for useful and profitable service in The Rusk are open to us, we would possibly be justified in resting contented with the reputation which the society has made. We would need only to recall that, in the last three annual contests for oratory in this university, a Rusk man has taken first place each time. The weekly exercises consist of a declamation, two orations, and a debate in which six participate. The range of subjects for debate is quite wide. At times, problems which perplex the minds of great statesmen are solved without difficulty. More than once has the belligerency of Cuba been declared Occasionally, also, we conclude that the United States G ' ernnient is not democratic. Our parliamentarians sometimes find " Roberts ' Rules of Order ' ' so completely inadequate that they look upon them with contempt. Others, more conservative, keep a copy of this little book with them for use on all i ms -both public and pi iv.ite. It i sincerely hoped that, before many years, we shall have a separate building for the societies more convenient than the present society halls, and in it nil] societies will be visited more by ladies, whose presence nevei fails to inspire young orators, f@inal ceeption, Alex.

(§)ne J)tuclent HIS name was George Thompson ; he was small, and he didn ' t seem to care for girls. This was his Junior year, and he boarded at the boys ' Hall. This much his Junior classmates knew about him, but that was all. The Sophomores knew even less, and very few of the Fresh- men knew him by sight. It was not long after the Winter term examinations, and five Junior boys sat out upon the railing of the west porch. The Spring term examin- ation was as yet far enough off not to cast its shadow, while the trial last passed was already sufficiently shrouded in the happy haze of distance for the good papers to be vividly remembered and the poor ones to be — not re- membered at all. So the five Junior boys were in high good humor. As they sat there George Thompson came up from the basement door, quickly followed by a crowd of chatting girls. " Say, " said one of the five, as Thompson went over to the Hall and the girls passed out of sight down the campus, " did an} 7 one ever see Thompson with a girl? " " Well, I ' ll tell you, " said the first speaker, a mischievous curly-haired fellow, let ' s have a lark; listen, " and five heads came close together. The Freshmen were going to have their last reception, and as usual, invitations had been sent out to all the other classes. The reception was to be on Thursday night, but on account of some misunderstanding the Juniors did not meet to elect their representatives until Wednesday after- noon. The class meeting was opened and nominations were in order. One of the five who the day before were together on the west porch rose quickly. " Mr. President, " he said, " I nominate George Thompson and Miss Grace Rane. " — Miss Rane, the lightest, gayest girl in all the Junior class. " I second the motion, " said another of the five. And before the class could get over its astonishment, a third arose and made a motion that they be unanimous ' elected. And they were. George Thompson was not at the class meeting — he taught a very stupid boy Greek in the afternoons after school. One of the five who boarded at the Hall was appointed to tell him. He waited until the next day; for he didn ' t wish to give Thompson time to back out. He met him on the stairway not long after the postman came. " I say, old fellow, " he said, vainly trying to assume a careless tone, ' ' you and Miss Rane have been elected representatives to the Freshmen re- ception to-night. I didn ' t get to tell you about it yesterday. I knew how busy you were, so I made it all right with Miss Rane, and she will expect you to-night. " He tried to pass on. Thompson ' s face was pale and his lips shut tight. He held an open letter in one hand, but the other he laid heavily on his fellow-student ' s shoulder. 161 " It will be impossible for me to go, " he said, " come to my room and I will give you a note for Miss Rane. " There was something in his tone which made the other obey without remonstrance. The note was written and the committee of one joined his fellow conspirators. It was a little before eight o ' clock when five Junior boys knocked at George Thompson ' s door. After a short pause the door was opened and the party entered . " Came to see if we could help you get read} ' for the reception, " said one of them cheerily. George faced the boy to whom he had given the note. " I am not going, " he said quietly, " Miss Rane does not expect me. " " O, I say, Thompson, " said the fellow, awkardly, " I didn ' t get to see Miss Rane. Awfully sorry, but — but — " he broke down and tried to look away from the stern eyes. Five boys sincerely wished themselves in Hali- fax — or some other very distant place. Without a word Thompson walked to his table. Upon it was a student ' s lamp, an open letter, a box of white flowers, and a photograph. He picked up the picture and handed it to the boy who stood nearest him. " Look at it, " he said. It was passed from one to another — a sweet girl face, with tender, mirthful eyes, and smiling lips. Under it in round girlish hand was written " Alice, " and under that in a man ' s firm hand, " My Sweetheart. " It was given back to him and he handed one of them a letter. " Read it aloud, " he said. And one read : " My son — " Alice (lied this morning at four o ' clock. She died with your name on her lips. I wish I could say something to comfort you, but I know too well that I cannot. Your mother, M. Thompson. " The reader silently returned the letter. What this scene had cost this proud, sensative soul none could ever know. His voice trembled : " Boys, I cannot go to-night. " A slip of paper fluttered down from the flowers and he who picked it up saw " Alice " written upon it. As he laid it back upon the table he saw a pawn-ticket for an overcoat — the price of the flowers. It was not a time for words. Silently five boys went away. The Freshmen reception was a grand success, but there were no repre- sentatives from the Junior Class. Next morning there was the usual clamor and noise in the boys ' dining hall. When George Thompson failed to come down to breakfast, the busy matron stopped to inquire at his table if he were sick. No one knew. i6j " No wonder he isn ' t down, " said one, " he spent the night walking up and down — right over my head, too. " " I ' ll go see, " said another — a Junior and one of the five. There was no answer to his knock and he pushed open the door. The light was still burning. The box of flowers had been tied up and addressed, and near them lay the letter and picture, side by side. George sat with his head bowed upon the table. The Junior called him by name, and receiving no answer, shook him gently by the shoulder. " My God ! " the boy whispered, " we have killed him. " The picture smiled up at him with sad reproachful eyes. He picked it up tenderly — it and the letter, and put them in his pocket. Then taking the box with him also, he went down to the matron. " I ' m afraid Thompson is dead, " he managed to say. " I will go for the doctor. " Before he came back he had mailed the box of flowers. When the doctor came, he pronounced it heart disease. He was doubt- less overworked and must have had some shock. Before they sent him home to his mother, one slipped down to the darkened room and laid next the still heart a letter and a picture. And he fancied that the dead knew, and smiled at him in forgiveness.

She is no Madame De Stael, though she had— ' twas all she wished —a d og, and thereby hangs this tale. Taffy was a handsome fellow, with a black, silky coat ; an unruffled and dignified pace ; a noble head with large brown eyes that looked " like lanterns set deep in the mouth of a cave. " I learned to like the dog. Was it because She owned him ? Perhaps I lived next door. , truth to tell, am a medical student. She was fond of reading, and the summer-house was a favorite place for mistress and dog. It was pleasant to watch them. The fidelity of a dog is proverbial, but Taffy ' s love for his mistress was— I cannot describe it. The fullness of my language belies the richness of my imagination. Stretched on the grass at her feet he would raise his heavy paw and place it caressingly on her dainty boot and look up with such a affectionate glance. As I noted it I thought the eloquent silent pleading but the upward craving of a lost soul, housed in the body of a dog for some un-Cbristian failure to forgive; and doomed for life to lick the hand that might be raised to shed its blood. (Your pardon, Pepe). Of course, there an? those who would interpret the unspeakable longings of their favorite Fido as an indication of an empty, aching void in the region of what should be the dog ' s epigastrium, but then, may there not be more in the physiognomy of a dog than was ever dreamt of in their physiology ? ' Twas dusk. She had returned from a stroll. Taffy was her constant, and I be- lieve her only, companion. At the steps She stooped and unclasped his brass collar, evidently expecting to have it cleansed. He bounded away to his kennel or the kitchen. Taffy was no poodle or a pug, I would have you know, but of the old dog Tray style, " kind and ever faithful, " never in a bellicose vein unless his mistress was disturbed, and as honest a dog as ever guarded a bone. Some dogs are ambitious; Taffy was not. A nice, clean kennel suited him. He did not even know what a fairy room his mistress ' parlor was. She stood hesitating for a moment then went inside. She did not want Taffy seen without his collar. The Medical College was not far away and she knew a great many dogs had been sacrificed for science ' s sake. Early the next morning I was awaked by a dog ' s furious barks and opening the blinds I saw Taffy, kicking, barking and biting, surrounded by three men of unpleasant mien, who were dressed like Sir Walter Scott ' s swineherder, or, better still, like the tramp in the " Plunger. " It looked like Taffy was going to be lost to the neighborhood, when, with a noise like the sound of rippling waters, like a distant flute ' s sad noise, she appeared in the doorway, more beautiful than Aurora, the fair goddess of morning, who opes the supposed pearly gates of the Orient and ushers in the grand god of day. It needed but a second to size up the situation, then, with the wild abandon of Sappho, down the steps she flew, her wrapper of some soft but not clinging material, floating in the breezes and her golden hair hanging down her back ; onward she sped, reckless as Phaeton, though unlike him, she swerved neither to the right nor left, nor did she stop until she had her Taffy in her arms— that was indeed a picture for Puck ! 169 Then she looked up into the eyes of him who still held the dog by the back of the neck and with all of the bitterness of lu-r pent-up anger, she blurted out: " You horrible old student-doctor ! " The dog-catcher, by reflex action, released his hold. He stood like a being suddenly turned to a " stiff. " Taffy thus freed lost no tiuu- in showing his mistress the way home. At the gate she turned and said: " Von detestable bone-sera] ier. you thought you ' ll get my dog, but you just didn ' t. ' ' The dog gave a low, short bark of satisfaction. The man moved. Whether it was the look she gave him, the words she spoke or the sound of the dog ' s voice that brought him to, I never knew. He turned on his heels, muttering: " I ' ll resign. When Chief Jones appointed me city dog-catcher I never dreamed of being insulted like this. " As he walked away the burthen of his prayer was, " student-doctor, student- doctor, " and oh ! the sarcasm of his voice. And as he joined his companions, far oil at a distance, the last thing I heard him say was : " Jim, did you hear her call me a bone-scraper? " oi.ivkk O ' Bar. mtt ' -;:: frlnklied.

YEOMAN : Look you, the magic copse grows thin apace, The dead men ' s moulding bones are dropping down- Freed from the twisted tendrils ' long embrace, They lie at last at rest upon the ground. Eyen so might one who sought his love afar And found some siren by the bitter sea, And lay within her fatal arms, while far Away love called him who no more was free, When all the untasted old delight had flown To happier lands beyond the sunset seas, Cast forth at last, fall down and make no moan For dead days or the lost Hcsperides. But now a belted Knight rode out From that strong hold of mystery — His arm a Princess clasped about, She smiled with never fear nor doubt The while he spurred across the lea. YEOMAN : Yen, and the castled turrets, tall and gray, Asleep amid the trees these many years, Xow hid now half concealed by the sway Of leafy branches in the wind that veers, Show through, and on the moss-grown, ivied walls A warder ' s armour glimmers through the trees, And in the long-silent court a bugle calls, And high o ' er all a banner flouts the breeze. Htm n And as I ponder all these things — The flaunting banner, fair and free, The far-off steel that gleams and rings — Strange childhood stories of the kings Of ancient days come back to me. Ah ! but the memories will not bide ; They range and change, and flit and flee. I dreamed of an enchanted bride Who sleeps, while knights and princes ride And seek for her from sea to sea. i i KB iHK God ' s curse is on this place of sin, 1 lod s curse on all who enter in And perish in their infamy. Ye;i, Cod ' s curse is on all of ve Who linger here a-whispei ing, And watching close for some strange thing To issue from the castle there. Full many knights, both great and fair, Have sought the witch within that place ; Yet never one has kissed her face — Yea, none has touched her garment ' s hem. But in the copse of death thev lie, Ami know no more of laugh or sigh — The lust of life burnt out in them. minstrel: Nay, otheiwise the tale was told In village song and minstrelsy, When first I heard, in davs of old, Men tell of this that now we see. Somehow, the strangelv-woveu rhymes Such subtle glamour cast on me. That even now their music chimes As then it chimed beside the sea. The Princess sleeps through years and vears Within the magic wall of trees — Untouched of laughter and of tears, Unknown of idle hopes and fears, She sleeps, and as she sleeps she sees The knight that, riding far and fast. Shall seek her out, and at the last Shall break the charm and set her free. About the Princess silently The drowsy days and years go by, And very slowly draweth nigh The day of days one day to be. But when the day shall dawn at last — When the long years are overpast — The lovers fled where none may know, From out the magic slumber cast About the castle long ago The King and all his court shall wake And issue forth once more, and take Their places in the weary world .... At last the castle sought afar And through long years, lies plain in viev I know not if its hedges arc To slav me or to let me through. Clinic life or death, what care have I, Whose life ' s one longing were denied Though all tilings else before me lie, If I won not the sleeping bride ' ■7t Ifc But now a noble Prince rode out From that strong hold of mystery - His arm the Princess clasped about, She smiled with never fear uor doubt The while he spurred across the lea. What thing, I ask you, shall be said By one whose greatest deeds are nought ! Who better far were lying dead, Slaiu in some battle long since fought. Why should I cry against my fate, Or dream of deeds that might have been ! Let it suffice — I came too late ; It is not for all men to win. But those who came too soon, who came Before the hundred years were past ; Who sleep with shame for name and fame, Damned and dust in the dust at last ; Was theirs ' the fault whereby they died, Even as they strove to set her free ; And while the knight that won the bride Scarce knew that such a quest might be ? Nay, after all, the best is theirs Who lie at rest the long years through, Beyond the reach of all the cares That in their living days they knew. The best is theirs who quiet lie, Untouched of any joy at all ; The worst is theirs who may not die, But live their life whate ' er befall. THE king : Lo ! you, the world is much as years ago It was, when on us all was cast this spell. The years unheeding, changeless, come and go, Whether men ' s little lives are ill or well. J. H.

IN a compilation of college statistics, previous boards have drawn fully upon their imagination, disregarding, to a great extent, the written replies of the student body. The present committee have taken scrupulous pains to faithfully reflect, in the following statements, the opinion of the average student, and they most cheerfully give their pledge as to its authenticity. The average age of the Texas University student is 20 years ; he is 5 feet 10 inches tall ; weighs, 150 pounds ; wears No. 6}4 shoe; size of hat, 7)4- He retires at 4 o ' clock in the morning and gets up at 6, the rest of the 24 hours being spent in arduous toil. Sixty per cent, of the students part their hair in the middle, 35 per cent, on the side and the remaining 5 per cent, do not part it at all, with the exception of C. P. Caldwell, who, from his own statement, parts his with a brush — according to his friends, a shoe brush. The moustache is not the thing now since the appearance of the hirsute disfigurement on the Apollo-like features of C. Pope. The second query was answered with surprising candor, and a complete list of the confessors would strike the heart of Henry Howard with horror. They admitted that they played sometimes; but a great majority added, in parenthesis, " just for fun and not for keeps. " The bones also are quite popular, and about the only time that the little cubes are laid to rest is during examination week, when the mind is bent upon a different kind of " pass. " To the query, " Have you a system that jus t can ' t be beat? " the answers were strongly in the negative. So emphatic, indeed, were some of them that it betrayed a previous over-confidence in a system which had prob- ably deprived his indulgent landlady of a month ' s board. Five young gentle- men, prominent in the Y. M. C. A. circles, answered that they alone had a combination system which was a sure winner, and offered to put us on to it by return mail for a two-cent stamp. Pool is not popular, except with Freshmen — and not long with them, owing to the Dingley Bill price of billiard cloth. The query, " Do you drink? " seems to have been generally misunder- stood, for everyone answered in the affirmative. There was quite a spirited contest over the favorite drink. Gin phizz received a few scattering votes. One vote was cast for champagne, but having no signature, was cast out. " X. X. X. " and soda pop were running neck and neck. " X. X. X. " was about to win, when the Freshmen, ai masse, bowled up and polled a solid vote for buttermilk. After the polls were closed, the committee found a silver-mounted connection tube to a pocket milk-tank, bearing the inscrip- tion, " Julian F. " (We are authorized to say that the owner may find same by calling at the " Co-op. " store.) 177 " In the event of the extension of the School of Geology, do you favor giving ' Pat ' a chair in ' Steinology ' ? " brought forth some stupid confes- sions. At least forty per cent, did not know who " Pat. " was, and even to a large number of the School of Geology the term " Steinology " conveyed no meaning; but since it was thought to be an additional course it was receiving a heavy adverse vote when " Pat. ' s Brigade, " led on by the un- quenchable Sir John Day, saved the cause, and " Pat. " was given a " full " professorship. In the next query the student was called upon to express his attitude in regard to abolition of " soak shops. " Owing to the large amount of col- lateral now in the possession of Uncles J. A. Jackson and Joe Koen it would be a fortuitous circumstance for them if their business were suddenly to sink into inocuous desuetude by an Act of Legislature; but again, owing to the fact that a large proportion of the aforesaid collateral was formerly possessed by the students, they are radical in their expressions of negation. There were only three votes for the abolition of this important factor in college life. To the question, " What is your favorite pastime? " the answers had the spice of variety and the average could not be calculated. Some expressed a desire to rest in the gentle arms of Morpheus; others exhibited fully as strong a desire to be infolded in the arms of Bacchus; but few, very few, evinced any yearning to play in Athena ' s back yard or even to holler down the rain banel of Minerva. Some with Venus would stroll down life ' s turnpike and still others, Diana-like, chase the festive jack-rabbit. Some with Terpsichore would cut the pigeon wing and do the fantastic can-can : and still others, among them ' I Willie Potter, would go through this tur- moil of strife and vale of tears pursuing the even tenor of their way. " Are you in love ? " Perhaps this was too pertinent a. query to pro- pound to a youth, especially a student youth, for there is something consti- tutionally wrong with a man under thirty who is not in love. If not he should take some good liver regulator. The affirmative admissions were practically unanimous and some are in the anomalous condition of being in love three times at one and the same time. For further particulars call on H. Damascus Ardrey. Among so large a number of love lorn swains it would seem that some would be engaged. But in reply to the query they all denied any contractual relations of that nature ; yet, be it recorded in their favor, it was a case of " Barkis is willin ' ; but it aint no use. " The average student ' s taste is for the brunette type. This does not refer to the taste in his mouth in the morning when there is such a difference, but to the complexion of the female contingent. Some are so gallant as to prefer both blondes and brunettes. As to politics, this composite type of students is overwhelmingly Dem- ocratic. A few deluded Freshmen and Junior Laws gave as their political affiliation O. E. Roberts. Hon. Joe Sayers is his choice for Governor ; but here again some unripe Freshman recorded himself as being unalterably in favor of A. T. Polsom. When we divulge the name of the most popular student, it must not be considared by the public that this highly favored individual is one whom they may trike for a " Y and the favor be granted with alacrity and be 178 »!Wbvor - ■■:. .. y:. considered a compliment. Be not so deluded, my friend, for if you weie to try to make that same borrow, it being Spring-time, he would tell you to hie thee hence and soak that useless overcoat. Yet still we have a hesitancy in divulging his name, but since he has urgently requested us to do so we have no other course and the ca lamity be upon his own head. It is no other than the hero that stood like the Rock of Ages in the centre of our line and threw defiance (his fist) in the face of the whole Dallas aggregation — Jack Jenkins — of Rastrap — hurrah for Hogg — fame. Taylor, Batts and Fitz-Hugh received about an equal number of votes for the most popular professor. Their popularity has been deserved and has been gained by actions, not words. Now we are called upon again to be very circumspect in divulging a name — the name of the handsomest student ; because in his maiden modest} ' he has kept himself obscured in the back ground of co-educational life, and we fear if the co-ed. discovers him it will be another case of Sampson and Delilah, his Hyperion curls be shorn and where would our foot bail team be without Kid Bethea. In the next question the committee discovered an act peculiarly overt and evidently perpetrated with malice aforethought. After a long canvass by the classes in Economics for Prof. Houston, the Freshmen spoiled every- thing by coming to the polls in a body and casting their votes respectively and collectively for Lyric Rhymster Hamberlin. But it will be of no gain to the Freshmen ; for it is a tradition as unalterable as the laws of the Medes and Persians that only three per cent, of the Irewsmen shall ever pass Nightmare I. So it is conceded, yet with regret, that the afoiesaid L. R. is the handsomest professor. In answer to the question " Who is the laziest man ? " the student body hit upon one peculiarly fitted for the honor by his character, the chief con- comitants of which are procrastination, inertia and generally debility. Birch Wooldridge was never known to show any energy, except in taking kodak pictures. Harry Tom King was conceded to be the most conceited man without a dissenting vote. We think, however, that the unanimity of the vote can be accounted for by his waistcoat, which like the shot fired at Lexington, can be " heard ' round the world. " It is one of the advantages of a co-educational institution that the men must be well-dressed and the votes were so scattering that the committee was unable to determine who in the opinion of the average student is the " best dressed man. " The votes for the best orator were divided between two young disciples of Demosthenes. Talking Tom Connally received one hundred and fifty- two votes; O. Listen-to us Ellis one hundred and thirty-six. The vote for the biggest liar was about evenly divided between Sap- phira Ananias Caldwell and Baron Munchausen Waggener. Mr. T Willie Potter is, according to ballot, the biggest flirt. It is gen- erally conceded that he has ruptured the cardium of more co-ed ' s than any other two men. 179 tmrnrnzmtam " The most intellectual man ? " In consideration of this question the students made a wise selection in that the majority of the votes were cast for Mr. Franz J. Dohmen. The hardest student. Everybody voted for himself and Ardrey casting the largest vote, won hands down. It was with an almost unanimous vote that the students expressed their opinion that an athletic field well equipped and owned by the U. of T. would be most conducive to college spirit. I have said " almost, " for Pat ' s brigade thought that to establish the old man in the new wing would con- duce to college spirits (with reptilian accompaniment) more largely than anything else. The Freshman that will be president of a final reception is Lingering- sweetness-all-drawn-out Callaway. The main proprietor of this establishment in his own estimation is John Avery Flummux : some students mistakenly think that Joe is the pro- prietor. E. S. Easton, K. H. Beall, Committee.

" The work will prove of great value to the bench and bar of Texas. " — Galveston Xews, Nov. 4, 1897. " The work is admirably done and is of great assistance to me in examining cases involving the Statutes. Every judge and every lawyer should have a copy. I must compliment the publishers on the excellent style in which the book is gotten up. " — Hon. C. C. Garrett, Chief Justice, C. C. A. " In this compilation, and in the recent edition of the Practice, the Hon. John and Henry Sayles have done a great work for Texas? ' — HON. GEORGE Clark, Waco, Texas. " It is the general verdict of com- petent authorities that the Annotated Statutes by Judge Sayles, just issued, is the most useful of all his works. It is one of the handsomest editions yet issued, and is a good example of the printer ' s and bookbinder ' s art of modern times. " — Houston Post, Nov. 5, 1S97. " I esteem your book highly and think it will be of great use to Texas courts and bar. I shall order the second volume, as I have heretofore ordered the first, for consul- tation room and the general library. " — Hon. R. R. Gaines, Chief Justice Supreme Court of Texas.
