N THINtiS matcvial the Uni- versity Ki ' ows apace, and in numbers ' shall soon be as the ocean sands. Texas is fast awakening to her need of thinys mtcllectual, both hu- manistic and technical. It is the hope of all who love the University that she will res- pond most nobly to this press- ing need of the State that gave her birth. She should always bear m mind that increased opportunities from the State mean increased responsibilities to the State. Regents and students, president and facult.v should never forget this fact. We must be worthy of the prosperity that is so surely coming upon us. The true greatness of a university is not at all measured by many buildings and great revenues, but by the characters of those who go forth into the world after ccmtact with her social and intellectual life. She should be a mother of the Gracclii. It is the duty of her faculty to show to the students the spirit of lit- erature and the method of science, to develop clear thinking and correct taste, to foster a love for intel- lectual honesty and sanity; but the students them- selves must largely create the social atmos phere and point of view that characterize the institution. Of all the influences that envelop the young student none aie more subtle and powerful than these; they affect him in a thousand ways. Socially there is much to commend at the Uni- versity. Exclusiveness based on money or other facti- tious circumstances finds but small favor. Owing to the increase in numbers.the students are segregating into groups, but there is a sort of inevitableness about such a process. The merits of any one are (juickly ri ' cognized, as are also faults, and intellectual strength and achievement are admired even as atliletic prowess, though in a less conspicuous wa.v. Sound friendships are formed here and merit wins its way, despite the fact that we are much given to ring politics and are not as iuick to cheer the fine play of the opposing team as we ought to be. Lack of proper student or- ganization stiU prevents the sober opinion of the insti- tuti(m finding free expressi(m and we suffer some- what in being often judged by sporadic ac-tions and utterances of irresponsible individuals. One can hardly say that, as yet, the student body of the University of Texas has a point of view. It is merely a bundle of good and bad notions and preju- dices. There is nothing very distinctive about Uni- versity of Texas men, other than the traits pecuhar to Texans. Indeed, the average student who comes to the University arrives with very vague noticms of the world and of academic ideals. He soon becomes patriotic and often overflows with a college spirit that 15 s mostly good, partly bad, and too often noisy. As a rule, he is painfuUy ignorant, and perhaps the great- est names of science, of literature, and of art are to him as if they were not. He has not enough knowl- edge to place himself or his university m the scheme of things. At times he wishes to imitate other colle- gians, but does n. t Imow exactly how; again he defies all conventions— sometimes a healthful sign. He de- mands that he be treated as a man in matters of dis- cipline, while too often his conduct is that of a wilful chUd He is voluble in criticisms, wise and unwise, of every thing and every body. In other words, the average student is whoUy without perspective, and his judgment in things at all remote, is worth little or nothing This is not his fault, it is his lack of train- ing Wlien the opportunity is offered, feeling in some vague way his deficiencies, he studies with avidity. All who have taught in our University, though lament- ing much the lack of preparation of the students, yet commend in the highest terms their great earnest- ness And this wih some day make them leaders. " One word more of comment. We do not use our hbrary enough, and when we do use it, we do not always read the right books. The current magazine often hides the row of masterpieces behind. For this there is, of course, much excuse. The lazy stud- ent does n.rt want, n n- can the industrious one find time to devote much energy to subjects other than his courses We are sadly in need of a Professor of Things in General, who, among other things, would inspire in us a love for the best books. We must learn to use good books, foUowing no one slavishly, but adding our mvn comments as befits a thinking being. 10 p . .Wv .f ii,,-;i 1 r 1 Class Officers. PALL TERM. Dudley K.

IIK liistor.vnr tlK ' Cliissof 11102 presents ii reci rd uneciuiiled ill the imiials ef this uni- versity. During the tliree years of its existence, it lla liroveii its sujieriDrity and capability ef leadership be- yond all possible doubt. Old traditions and characteris- tics of university life which have previously been features in the development of students from plebeians to graduates have, in this case, been altered by th( vim and insuppressil)le pre-eminence of thi class which is at present known as the Junior Academic. Most alumni while rellectiiif; over their school days and afifain hvin over in their dreams that period of their evolution known as university life, shudder when they think of their Freshman days. Then was when life was miserable indeed: (m the one hand the upper-class men carefully avoidiui? them, on the other tile Junior Jjaws attempting to avoid them as little as possible throujjh the a eiicy of all conceivable means of torture. The Class of I ' .KW. however, has seen few victor- ious adversaries. During their Fresliman days they let it be understood that old customs must in their case be chansjfed, as indeed they were. One needs but ask a Junior Law student from that time con- cerning the battle in the Histor.v room, and he must confess the defeat of his class altlioui h they were superior in number. The record made by our class in the base-ball season was a f lorious triumph over everything in sight. But not only here were we su- perior, but also in the fine arts, music, poetry, etc. One need but look through The Cactus of ' 99 and all the best works of art are drawn by Rector, Brooke, Fulmore, and Thomson. All these instances (»f the general superiority exemplified by tiie achievements of the individual members should give conclusive evi- dence that the Class of 19(Il ' was, from its earliest ex- istence, a class intended as a leader among the other classes of thi ' L-ni versify. Sophomore year of the period of our evolution was not .so full of glories as our Freshman year. By this statement it is not meant ti) insinuate that com- parativel.y few laurels were won, but on the contrar.v there were so many that they could not all be appre- ciated. Who but the crafty Slay and the inimitable Potts could have been victorious at the oratorical con- tests which were held, and whose victories reflected so much honor on our University. One of our class- members was honored by election to the presidency of the Tennis Associati(m, and in many other respects the class was recognized by the tendering of respon- sible and hcmorable offices to its individual members by the student-body. Our third year, the present, has so far becjn un- eventful, but glories must cmne. sooner or later. Kennard was (m the foot-ball team of the University, and Samu(4, Bewley, Chapman, and Fulmore played freditably on the " scrub " team. An eventful and glorious base-ball season is expected, and doubtlessly the Class of 19(»2 will there again show its mettle by overwhelming victories. What the future may have in store for the Class of r.Miii, can, as in every other instance, but be con- .jectured. " Hist iry repeats itself " has biH ' n exempli- fied again and again, consequently can we not foresee a most glorious closing career at this university and a truly successful practical hfe for the individual members of a class whose past record is obviously but the dawn of the coming splendor. C. T. W. 2 J The Journey. SOPHOMOIIE CLASS POEM. The woods were tilled with autumn ' s crimson lire, And thoug-h the summer days were done, Her gaudy Howers displayed their rich attire, Shining beneath the sun. But yet invisibly did those glad hours Increase the seasons and the year. Till all the fair forsook their woodland bovvers, Seeing the winter near. In days like these a gallant company Set forth unto a distant land: Impetuous youth and hope that cannot die Thrilled every heart and hand. And we since then so constantly did urge Our onward steps as best we knew, That now, far-seen upon the distant verge. Appears that land in view. And we are glad wdien some are strong and gay. Unwearied yet in heart and limb: But he that faints and falls beside the way— Do we not pity him? Sometime when we shall reach our journey ' s close. And each on his own way shall pass, A blinding grief ' twill be to part from those That once were called (Jin- Clans. — . L. iSinchii ' r. 30 A Sopbomoree Jt rg. Sophomores. CLASS 1903. Akers.

Being removed from the Freshman state by exactly three months and fifteen days, they now held their heads high, and in their turn hurled taunts at the unfortunate Naughty-fours. Then they rejoiced in their reunion, and resolved not to go to sleep, as is the usual way ot ordinary SophonKn ' es, but to make old ' Varsity ring with the echoes of their prowess and glory. They immediately and proudly convened, the re- sult of which meeting was Mr. Dexter Hamilton, President. After two mimths there was another im- portant meeting, with Mr. Hamilton in the chair and Mr. Fisher displaying linguistic attainments, at which, after some mild disputation, it was agreed that 1903 give a " real swell " german. The members were assessed, and enough money borrowed from the thus-honored Freshmen to make it " extra tine. " On the afternoon of the day set for our hostship the class met at Eighth Street Hall for decin-ating purposes. The walls were draped in gold and white, and a huge ' 03 of white and yellow crysanthemums held the most prominent place. The artistic part of the affair we may attribute to the deft fingers and good taste of the Sophinnore Co-eds — the " spiritual " part was, no doubt, due to the " worser " pcirtion of the class. The german proved a decided success. Music and floor were ideal, decoratiims beautiful, the programmes exquisitely artistic and of Mr. Rector ' s own making. Everybody voted the Sophomores an up-to-date class, and everybody was right, too. After Christmas exams, the class awoke to the horrors of life and was duly shocked at its pre ious frivolity. It was a jjeriod of gravity and hard work. Meetings were scarce; the aristocratic debt ' 03 had incurred was weighing heavily cm its conscience, not to speak of the effects produced thereupon by the tactless duns of our Freshmen creditors. Mr. Hatch- et ' s regime thus closed eventlessly. This eventless- ness, however, left a good finger mark on the regis- trar ' s records. The third term began under good auspices. Dis- encumbered of its pecuniary trouble under the presidency of Mr. X. Y. Duncan, ' 03 blossomed forth as if prophetic of the triumph in stcn ' e for her in the near futuri . The base-ball field has, from times immemorial, been the Marengo and Austerlitz of ' 03, and this sea- son made no exception. Our nine guarded and padded representatives, much like crustaceans in that they had most of themselves exteriorly girt for battle, and in several heroic conflicts laid low Fresh- men, Juniors and Junior Laws, renewed their last year ' s h(mors and added to them the championship of Noughty-one. ' Rah f n ' the diamond 1 By that sign we ccmquer ! Such is the record of the glorious class of ' 03 as a whole. Were we to speak of it individually this chronicle would assume prodigal dimensicms. So with regret we must pa s by all the incipient athletic c-hampions, artists, musicians (as are displaying theii ' various good parts in band, orchestra and glee clubs), the orators, journalists, et altera, et altera. But it were heinous to pass by the Poet of the Class of Naughty-three ' in fact, the best bard the ' Varsity has ever claimed for her owm. Caledonia, stern and wild, produced him, Texas reared him, and the Soph- omore class looks to him for her everlasting glori- fication. 3ti Ifil -liad 37 Freshman Class Officers. 1 900-1 yoi.

N rf ading those highly inter- esting and veracious narra- tives, class histories, one is struck by the superiority of each successive class over the one preceding. In fact, this has become so much the rule, that for the sake of ori- ginality, we, the class of 190-4, rather hoped to be the exception; hoped that in the former history of the University we might find at least one class which had been our equal if not our superior. But in this hope we were disappointed. Truth compels us to state that never before has there been such a class as ' the class of 1904. In the latter part of October, we came together for the purpose of organization. Every Freshman was present, recognizing the importance of the occa- sion, and foreseeing the effects such a step might have upon the future history of the University. The meeting was vnthout interruption, owing perhaps to the fact that the Junior Laws did not dare attack us in our united strength and dignity — or perhaps were unaware of our proceedings. With a noble disregard for order and for all Parliamentary rules, the neces- sary business was transacted witli a unanimity of opinion delightful to behold. Otiicers were elected and committees appointed to see about class colors, class caps, and the reception. And even the Junior Laws admit that that re- cepti(m was a success. What more can be said in its praisey A short time before, we had been asked to Mrs. Kirby ' s to become acquainted with each other, and so aU were friends who met that night at Presi- dent Prather ' s. For that night at least it was good to be a Freshman. Hullabaloo sis-boom-bah. We are death on the Junior Law, Rah, rah, rah, rah, rah, ree, We are the stuff at the ' Varsity. It was with this inspiring battle cry that we charged against the Junior Laws that famous No- vember, 1900. For some time there had been skirmishes in the corridors and on November, mat- ters were precipitated. The Junior Laws, in a mo- ment of hilarity, seized our president and bore him in triumph to the Gymnasium. We promptly retali- ated by capturing their president, and, taking him to the east corner of the campus, more than avenged Mr. Henne ' s injuries. The Junicu ' Laws, finding that they were now playing a losing game, demanded a truce, and it was agreed to resume hostilities on the Athletic field tlie foUowing day. Those prc seut as spectators on this memorable and highly exciting oc- 44 CMsinii, (Iccliirc thai I ' or a liaiul to-liaiid. r(iii; li and tunil)lc ti lit, and fur a iii ' iicral iiiix-iip, t liis hattlr is witliDUt a paralli ' l.

Souvenirs of the occasion, consisting of small portions of shirts and trousers, were scattered about tin ' field, and conibafants in a more or less dejjfree of collapse were assisted from the scene by sympathizing friends. We confess that we were van iiiislied, and are not ashamed to confess it. Some defeats are Ki ' t utt " ! ' than victories. If is the part of a faithful historian to set forth the mistakes as well as the triumphs of his class. In putting the T up(m our caps we seem to have in- fringed upon llie privilef e oi the atletiiic men, who wear if as a sorf of l) adf e of Legion of Honor. It is only necessary, here, to say that we were entirely ignorant of this, and, when the mistake was dis- covered, it was immediately rectified by the majority of the class. But on the whole it is not to be denied that we have been a potent factor for f?ood in the affairs of fhe University. The foot-ball record of the past sea- son was more {glorious than ever before. The or - nization of a Students Council has been undertaken this year. And to what can all this be ascribed if not to the subtle and all pervading influence of the new element in University life and circles— the advent of the class of i ' .toly 45 ■OH I The Engineering Department.

ESTED by the maxim, " Happy are the people whose annals are brief, " this would be a melancholy chronicle, tor our career has been one teeming ' witli events, a proper record of which would till far more than tlie allotted space. But to this rule of thumb of History we are the (me well recognized excepticm. Of course we are the best class that ever has been, or ever will be g-raduatetl from the University of Texas. Since all of our pred- ecessors have made the same modest boast, and it will be made again next year by the present aggrega- tion of misery laiowai as the Juniors, we present a few statistics. Would our foot-ball team have been the unbeaten champiims of the South had we not contributed Hart, McDaniel, McCall, Sam, Montieth, and the peerless SchrienerV Did not " Big " Neal break the world ' s record for lung capacity, and " Big " Sam make the All Southern Eleven? And can one consult the rec- ords of an.y department of athletics, whether it be base-ball, golf, (see J. N. Goldbeck,) or tennis, with- out seeing the name of a Law ' 01 lead all the rest? And in other fields than this have we excelled. For the Intersociety Debate the Rusk presented a solid phalanx of our men — Lawhon, German and Hilliard. As a consequence they W(m tlie c uestitm, and the elo- quent Theochn-e Roosevelt Lawh(m was chosen (me of the debaters who will annihilate Baylor in the coming battle. Our men have all but nnmopolized the presi- dencies of the literary societies. " Babe " Allen rep- resented the student-body at the alumni banquet at Dallas last October, and was editor-in-chief of the Magazine for the fall term; Elkins is business man- ager of The Cactus : Booth, McCulloch and Mills are the mainsta.vs of the German Club; H. Do ' mis Ar- drey, the nerveless wcmder, is chairman of the " Com- mittee (m Kicks " at B. HaU; and Hooker holds the featherweight chanipi(mship, while " Monte " and " Soder, " the Heavenly Twins, are joint tenants of the throne of beauty. And (me might go on idefinitely enumerating hcmors conferred up(m and wim by our men, but surely this is enough to cimvince the most skeptical that we are IT. This pr()p()siti(m behig settled in our favor, let us, in the language of V. Lovett Shurtletf, " pass, " to some of our legal attainments. We have learned much, and yet realize keenly that we have much yet to learn before we wiU be ready for the ermine. But eacli man feels that the legal knowledgo ho has absorbed, and the " Polv. Con.

On October 1st last we assembled about eighty strong;, Little Eddie HoolciM ' , who could not just then tear himself away from the j iddy whirl at Ocean Springs, bein the most notable absentee. Aftershakinf.? hands and niournin for those who had fallen by the wayside, we promptly fell to work, iiausing as soon as we u our bearin j:s, lonj : enough to diij out from mo(h ' st retirement Otis K. Hamblen, and elect him President of tlie class, with able assistants in the persons of Bowman, Vice-Presi dent, and " Biji: " Neal, Sm-f-reant-at-Arms. The next to be elevated to the presidency was Robert T. Neii ' , with a stall ' ccillsistinj of ' i ' erell, ( pT ' otloUllci ' d Turl) ' ici ' -l i ' esidenl and " Hi; " Xeal, who had acipiired pre- scriptive i-i i-hts to his job, SerKtMinta-. rins.

We now recognize the tribal headship of Albert Ij. Fiurford, wliose council consist of W. Hess Thonijjson, Jr., Vice-President, and the same old Sei-geant-at-Arms. And now the end of mr trial is near, and each uuin must soon sulimit his case to the five just judges ( lould, Biitts, Townes, Simkins, and Fjcwis, and may the unanimous judgment of tlie court be that each iiulividual member of the Law Class of IIU ' I be sen- tenced to hai ' d labor at the bar for life. But no matter what maybe the result, we shall always be the Law Class of inni. " ;i perpetual union " of good fellows and friends, " made moi-i ' perfect, " by our association of the past two years.

M ■ ■ M " M Y son, " said Father Time, the Revealer, ' ' the prairies are beginning tq brown and sere: the fields whiten as wintry snow and summer ' s heat will soon be driven southward. You would learn the legal maxims of your fathers " ? Betake you then to the greatest seat of learning in this Soutliland your forefathers made. There when September ' s closing days have ushered in autumn ' s shortlived youth you will meet others who, like you, would seek life ' s destiny in an uncertain field. Palter not, for they wiU encourage and assist you: and when you have assembled together the leaders destined to guide you will appear before you. Some are with- ered and gray worn by life ' s wasteful labor, some are in manliood ' s prime and some are young and barely have begun their leadership. One morning these in turn will address you upon your life ' s work, its cares, its duties and its resp(msibilities: it will seem to you that their words will last through many moons, but the end will come and you will live beyond it. " First the mailed hand of the youngest will smite you sorely: he shall cause the days of ' thirty-six to live the days of ' fifty-six. And on the third day you will proceed to select a chief from amcmg you: while you deliberate you will be attacked by your rivals to the south: he that leads you in gallantly repelling this attack shall be your first president. Later when you have passed the first milestone of your journey through the gardens your second chief will appear to you from out a din of turmoil and strange noises. When you have passed the second milest(me, for three shall be the periods of your journey, your third chieftain will appear to you and lead you to a peace- ful journey ' s end. Typical of the successive periods of their leadership shall be your chiefs: for they shall represent strength, political sagacity and per- suasive eloquence. " And, my son, you will find in this seat of learning a set of youngsters who, like you, are new t) their work. Tlieir effrontery and daring are equal only to their freshness. These men I commend especially to your care and that of your companions. You will have many contests with them, and their president you wiU one day tenderly reprove: and when you have taught them to fear you, you will wiage together a mighty battle on the plain: great will be your vic- tory and humiliating their defeat: but anger and hatred will find net lodgment and light meritorously will you have discharged your duty. " Your leaders wiU guide you wisely and kindly: your chieftains shall be worthy of you. Death will deprive you of some of your number: others faint- hearted will faU by the wayside. The stalwart who c(mtinue, though arduous will be their labors, will be richly rewarded. And at the end when the fields have become green far to the north and the tiowers have blossomed upon the plain, your company will disband and each will return to the land whence he came. And then when summer ' s sun has passed and autumn ' s shortlived youth has come: when the prai- ries begin to browia and sere and the fields to whiten as the wintry snow, return to me and I will reveal to you the second cycle of your compimidnable (ex- istence.

The affection appears to be chronic, thoutih in all probability there is a reinfec- tion at the be iinninii ' of each scholastic year. ETiOLO(iY. - The important factoi ' in the production of this disease is now definitely stated to be a micro-organism, the Bacillus Junior. This l a- cillus varies considerably in size and shape, but nuiy be easily recoynized by its evident superiority ovei ' other organisms, none of which will develop in its presence. A typical growth was produced at tlie Medical Department this year and proven conclusively by the fulltillment of Koch ' s Postulates to be the cause of this disorder. It is sometimes stated that this same organism is responsible for the production of the Freshman Class, but it should be thoroughly under- stood that while in a measure this is true, such action takes place under widely different conditions. Here the organisms are vi ' ry virulent indeed. Special pre- parations show it to be actively motile, and may be recognized by the i)resence of a numbei- of fine cilia .just Ix ' neath its pi-obnscis. When in this form it grows best in nioditied cows milk, to which has been added sonje infusion of bay, developing typically in the chemical lab;)ratory. The production of noxious principles and iiinTibie odors are unmistakable evid- ence of its presence. The Bacillus Junior usually gains entrance into the system througji the Provost ' s ofiBce, after having shed a small amount of bilivt-rdin. No amount of prophylaxis will iirevent the disease, though a rigid curi ' irulum and sevei ' e " uKike-ups " ' will greatly re- duce the number of bacilli jiresent, and so ameliorate the subsequent symptoms. Morbid Anatomy and Symptoms. — The bacilli act by becoming agglutinated into a tumor of a Ijenign type, usually, though there are cases recorded where this mass has become malignant, free incision bf ' ing necessary for relief. The mass is of irregular sliaiie, freely movable, and varies in size according to the number of bacilli present. Strange to say this tumor varies its posi- tion with the hours of the day, being present in the vicinity of the hospital during the morning hours, where it is a decid( d irritant, and found hicalized about the college building in the afternoon. Its 3091 favorit ' ; situation is aVjout the ' ntrau(;(. ' of tliis build- inf?. Its present there is likely to give rise t(j various symptoms from the obstruction of important pas- saj !s, and by disturVjinj the; normal function of the street. The individual organisms are comparatively innocuous, so long as they are not unduly excited, this ai ' ising from a number of causes an enumeration of which is unnecessary. Tkkatmknt. - This is to be directed ne-arly alto- gether atfainst the micro-organisms. A iiunibi ' i- of serums have been prepared Vjy the iiK ' ijihiMs ol the faculty, and rejjeated innoculations of thi-se are i i ' ac- ticed. Large doses of chemistry serum should be administfjred for tw.) years previous to the expected attar-k. Probably the organic variety alone would hive a V;ett(!r effect. Unfortunately this prepai ' atiim, while it would no doubt control the disi ' ase, there is great danger of seriously crippling the initient. Hr)W- ever thi, ' literature i-i not compli, ' t(. ' alimi this line, and later ri ' si arch will be likely to bring to light some startling facts. Small doses of surgical anatomy are well borne, as well as the same of obstr ' tries. Quizes particularly of Practice ex(jrta beneficial influence by causing the sudden disappearance of some of the bacilli. Moderate doses of Phai-macy have a sooth- ing effect.

When it was annoiiijce l t hat tlie college was des- troyed, many of us Ix ' ' an. ret;r ' tfully. to turn our eyes to the Kast for some other col|e;;e in which 1o continue our studies. l ' )Ut ei-e lon r -ame the e;lad news tliat the colle e was in tolerabli ' fair condition, notwithstanding the , ' reat damat e done it. and that the Hoard of Reti ' ents and l ' ' acully had decided to hold a session Ihej-e, which should bejiin on the lirteenth of N(jvembe|-. Accordinyl.v, on IS ' oveiiilier 1 hi rteeiil h. wlii ' ii we arrived in ( ialvestoii, we found many of our old class- mates ali ' eady there, who greeted us with hearty hand shalfes and sinilinj; faces. IJut, oh, thec|ianKe l appi-ai-anee of everythintxl It was iiliiiost enouKh to iiiake one shivei- with horror at the thou fht of that terrible storm. On enumeration we found that our company con- sisted of foi ' ty one members, we havinj been rein- forced by Mi ' ssrs. Kirk and Ijovinji, of the Main Departiiien, others of our numbei- liavinK l)een sr) badly disabled by the " exams " of last year as t i iM ' cessitiite their removal to the rear (the l ' ' reshman Class). On the lifteeiilh t lie order " clui r el " Was jfl Veil, and the result of our determined attack on the second year ' s work is seen in part in the splendid record so bir made. While tliere iiave been " Husts, " it is true, we atti ' ibutetheni to tiie fact tliat we have in our class public speakers, Jaj) nttumn the numi)er: |)uj;insts, liock and Winchester: teiniis i)layers, men of ye soft " K ) )-Koo " ey( ' s: and famous sleepers, Me Whiskers. We have had excellent courses in Physiolo ;y, Anatomy, Pat holoj y, Obstetrics, Thera|)r ' U tics, ( ' hem istry, and Minor Surgery. ' Phi ' course in Therajjeutics consisted of the study ol the physiolo fical action of dru s, spiced now and Ihi ' ii with one of )r. Handall ' s rich and rare stories, and which never failed lo jrive the " most |n-ofound result. " ir, The lectures in Physioloijy were marked by the regularity with which " Whiskers " went to sleep. The course in Obstetrics was characterized at first by the pleasure the boys evinced at Dr. Payne ' s sto- ries; after the first intermediate examination, how- ever, the most noticeable feature was the serii )us atten- tion as the result of the severe shaking up we had received. Work in the other branches has been very satis- factory so far, and bids fair to establisli for our class an enviable record. During the year we have developed a sudden fondness for singing, our favorite songs being, " The Hamburg Show, " and " There Are No Flies Ion Us, " led respectively by Reifel and " Bloomy. " There has developed among the boys a ftmdness for cutting, especiaUy the quizzes on Chemistry. We trust soon, however, to be beyond the strife, trouble, and tribulations incident to the study of Chemistry. We lay claim to being the quietest, nicest, braini- est, and best-looking class in school, with the possible exception of the Senior Class, which is entirely too small in number to amount to much in comparison with our number. Perhaps our happiest moments have been those when we would catch the wondering gaze of the " enlightened Freshman, " and hear him whisper in awe, " I wish I was a Sophomore. " It is useless for me to prophesy great things for our class: in the first place, aproi)het is without honor in his own country; and second, no one acquainted with us will, for an instant, doubt that in our great fight against micro-organisms, their cause.s and results, that we will come otf victorious and shall each receive the blessing and commendation of their asso- ciates in after years. As now the curtain falls on this, the second scene in our college life drama, comedy, farce, or whatsoever you choose to call it, I propose A tear with those wlio weep, A sigli with tliose who sigh. May you live always, And may we never die. S. H. (J., I istoriiiii. " (J (P PATHOLOGICAL MUSEUM. Q( sfS (5 Medical Class, 1904. OFFICERS. FIRST TERM. SECOND TERM. M. E. LOTT A. A. Chapman Miss C.

As history is not authentic which deals with " unknown elements, " but must turn its face, like the oriental pillar of " sodium chloride " (Lot ' s wife) for- ever backward, we hesitate and stand appalled to attempt a record of the (im)mortal deeds of this won- derful class. As we look into their manly faces, numbering some sixty strong, coming from the green grass of the North, the piney woods of the East, the " cactus " lields of the West, and the salt waters of the South, we see the stamp of many a Galen, and a Harvey on their brows, which will require only the great oppor- tunity of " heroic " exams to fully develop. Their achievements this year in the mysteries of medicine, and great results from the untrained dis- secting knife, have astimished the learned professors and made them wonder what would be done next. These ctmtident fellows might be depressed by the thought of the weight of the " cap and gown, " when they shall have reached them, as observed from the importance of the Seniors, were it not for the gentle tones of a cheering voice, the noiseless faU of a dainty foot as a girlisli form softly glides among them, sustaining their failing courage and leading them all to admire her — Miss Potter. The bond of unity and sympathy existing between the members of this class, the tixed determination and steady purpose of eac ' h to make a master workman worthy of liis craft, the hoi)( ' s inspiring each pulsating heart with the thought of human suffering stilled and human pain allayed, in the years to come by the sac- rifice of self and faithful devotion to duty, combine to give promise of future physicians whom the Uni- versity of Texas will delight to call her sons.

I NDEED it has been truly said that History I ' epeats the deeds of men, and to write indi- vidually the deeds of this class while con- nected with this branch of the University, would require many volumes. The word " History " is here used in a broader acceptation to tit the demands of the occasion. Of the thirty-three who matriculated in the Junior class of ' 99 only thirteen returned, however, fortunately, three of the class of ' 9H returned, making us a total of sixteen members. Unfortunately in the earlier part of our year we lost one of our members, Mr. E. E. Green. On re- turning after the Christmas holidays he was stricken with typhoid fever, from which he never recovered. Mr. Green had many friends throughout the Uni- versity aiid we all feel that in his death we have lost one of our most promising and faithful members. The educated Pharmacist is fast becoming more and more appreciated by the public; while on the other hand, the " mere mixer, " who pours medicines together knowing nothing of the subsequent reac- tions, has had his day and is gradually passing out of notice. The number of graduates in Pharmacy has steadily increased each year since the addition of a department of Pharmacy to the University: and, not withstanding the sad misfortune that befell the city of Galveston, we can proudly say that this is the largest class that has ever graduated here in Pharmacy. Also we can boastingly say that ours is the tirst class to graduate with a greater number than the class in Medicine. Although our Senior year has been much harder than the Junior, yet so far with the exception of few instances, fortune has smiled upon us. Str mg ties of friendship have grown up among the members of this class, friendship that will be cherished in future life. And it is to be hoped that every member in the future practice of his chosen pro- fession, wiU strive to elevate the science of Pharmacy. R. H.

It is not our intention to make our first appearance before the world with sweeping bows nor flourishing trumpets proclaiming our capability and the startling wonders we might discover, but proceed with an entirely dif- ferent idea, hoping by constant climbing to get nearer and nearer our ideal. Immediately on entering the immense domain of a pharmaceutical study, we found facts overwhelming- ly numerous and complicated, some that for the first time had notentered our minds; still with an able pro- fessor at our lead we know we will be assisted in being rendered capable of solving the ditticult prob- lems that may confront us. " The chief glory of a nation, " says Dr. Johnson, " arises from its authors. " With this opinion we feel that we have a decided advantage over many of our foregoing students, and will not be content sitting with our minds at peace with a mere knowledge of " Compatibility, " but work for a further insight to that popular science. Make this life one devoted to reading and investigating the origin of principles not yet thoroughly understood, or Ijerhaps even to purify at least a few of them from some palpable errors. WHien in our laboratories mixing drugs of various nature and character, even though yet young in our chosen work, we feel inclined to know the reason for " Whys. " In this compounding we find our greatest pleasures wondering what will take place, the nature and C()l(n- of the precipitate, if any, and trying to mas- ter the cause, each one ever lending an attentive ear to the words of explanation of his professor as they are ushered forth, all realizing that his future success depends to the greater extent in the manner in which he applies himself, not only during study hours, but in the handling of his mortar and pestle; yes, even in such a minute affair as acquiring the habit of labeling every preparation. Lastly, knowing that two minds are superior to one, we tried to work in unison, continually striving for that higher and nobler point, always making haste slowly with our " Specta Sublime " brightly shining bef(n ' e us as our motto, and in the end endeavoring to be where, if man should comment he could truly and justly say, " Well Done. " " Cindy. " 88 History of the P. A. U. T. IS- ■a ■.arc il ■ xl in ■ D |HE Pluinnaccutical Association of the University of Texas was orj anized in l iiMi, witli tlie simple object of secur- ing ' co-operation between the two classes of Pharmacy. Since tliat time it has gradually increased its sphere of activity, until now it stands amony ' the tirst of our U. T. associations, for useful- ness and unity. In X99 a committee was appointed to draw up a new constitution (the old one havinj been lost). This constitution provided for a regular meeting to be held once a nnmth, andaproKramm( consistint of articles interesting to us in a pharmaceutical or literary way, to be read by a representative from each class, ap- pointed by the president for that purpose. When we reorganized in 19(10, we decided to amend the constitution to meet the demand for a broade field, made by our growing institution. The amended constituti(m provides for bi-monthly meetings, and in additicm to the above programme all members are requested to bring before the house for discussion any matter of general pharmaceutical interest which may have come to their notice. Besides the Progamme committee, the constitution now jirovides for committes on Legislature, Education, Querries Adultei-ation, etc. These committees have all woi ' ked hard and done well (especially the Legislature committee), and their reports have done much to i-enderour mei-tings inter- esting and profitable to us in a professional way. There is also a committee on Necrology, though it was earnestly hoped at the time this committe . ' was appointed, that it would never have any report to nuike. Since that time, however, our Heavenly Father has taken frt)m us one of our members, Mr. Elmer E. Green, of Athens, Texas, leaving us sorrowing and wondering as little children might, when a belovt ' d playmate is suddenly removed from thi ' ir midst, and taken they know not where, or why. But in adversity, as in prosperity, we stand together comforting one another as best we may, in our common sorrow. So in the years to come, as in those now gone for- ever, may the members of the P. A. U. T. be (me in the desire to help one another and all together to lift the profession of Pharmacy as high as any profession in the land, and convince the public that, as our hon- ored professor often tells us, " There is mt)re in Phar- macy than rolling a pUl.

In The Cactus, of UHid, will be found a history of the circum- stances of its orj anization, and of the dif- ticulties which it met and conquered, be- fore it came to be recof nized by the powers that be, namely: " The Butchers and Hakers, and Candlestick makers " of Galveston as a success, instead of a douljt- ful (experiment. The Club was no little ciippled by the " Kreat storm, " both in members and in property; our dishes, etc., were destroyed, and other colleges carried off some of our highest officers, leaving us bereaved indeed. But the faithful few who returned, set about the Herculean task of straightening things out at the Hall, and so efficiently did they execute their task, the Club was able to open November l. ' i. liH " ) on the old terms— board, ten dollars a mcmth. To students who are desirous of working their waj ' through college, an opportunity is given to earn their board by waiting (m the tables at the Hall. Real- izing that nothing honest can ever be anything but honorable, this opportunity has been taken advantage of by several promising .young men, and everything at the HaU is " all in the family, " thus making the Club even more an institution of the students, by the students, for the students. The officers of the Club consist of the usual Pres- ident. Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer. Be- sides these there are three committees. 1. An Executive committee, whose duty it is to attend to the purchasing and management at the Hall, and also to receive and act upon all complaints made by members of the Club. ' 2. An Auditing committee, which carefully goes over the books of the Secretary and Treasurer eac-h mcmth and makes report at each regular meeting of the Club as to the correctness of same. ' . ' ,. A Membership committee, which receives and acts upon all applications for membership to the Club, and preserves order in the dining-room at the Hall. That the Club is a success, is proven by the increased membership this term, and that it will c m- tinue a success in ah the years to come, as long as it adheres to its present principles, no one acquainted with those principles as set forth by our c mstitution will doubt. Some of our pleasantest college remembrances will no doubt be connected with the Hall, and when in ccmclusion. I offer my heartiest congratulaticms to the Club for past successes and best wishes for future ones, I think I can hear a fervent " Amen " from every one who has ever .stood in the vestibule anxiously awaiting the cheerful " AU Right. " which has always been the sign for the " grand rush. " " M. S. F. 93 t m UV ■ ■J»LJ l l j fc tf fc t«i l ' ■■ ■ IN ACTIVE SERVICE. F 1 m mmm Afs-v V rc " " n Class History.

' t ' uurtli iiniith of the ijim third year of the reign of Willi;iiii AIcKinley, that twelve maids of the laud of Texas, departed " from the places wherein they dwelt, and went into the coast country that lies bey(md Houston, even into (ialyeston, that they mi.ufht prepare themselves to become nurses of the sick, of which there was no little t ' .iroughout the IcnLitli and breadth of the land. And it came to pass that the fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, with all their liouscholds, rose up ti) prevent them, and there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth. And many prophecies went out concerning the city towards which the uuiids were sojourning. And they prophesied saying, " The time wiU surely come when the waters of the seas will gather themselves together over the Oleander city, and tile island will lie no more. " And they rebuked the maids saying, " " What protiteth it a woman if she serve the whole world, and at the age of twenty-tive hath neithei- husband nor liouie of her own? " But the uuuds smiled and departed, and after a day ' s journey came into the isle of the Cialvestonians. Now, when they had passed beyond the Union depot, they looked toward the East, and they entered into the " Nurse ' s Home, " which was presided over by Hanna, whose suiiianie was K ' inliorn. a woman of mighty stature, and (me whose executive powers had nev( r before been kno l in that city. Here they lodged, and, after a time, she clothed them with blue and white and placed a cap ujmn their heads, and said: " Do as I tell you, and I will make you nurses of children, women, and men. " And the maids had great respect for her, akin to reverence, and they entered into her ways rejoicing. Rut after many days, she called together the wise men of the city, known as the Board of Regents, and said, " It is expe- dient that I go away. " And she departed, and there arose another in her place, Minnie, whose surname was Purgerson: and she was fair to loolc upon, and sought to walk in the ways of the righteous, but she instructed not the maids by lecture. Ni )w I )u acci lunt of thej i- uti ' at ignoi-ance the maids were sorely jierplexed. and they rose up and said, " Crive us an instructor, " liut none came. And it came to pass in the second year of the sojourn of the maids in the City of Galveshm, that there arose a mighty wind which swejit the waters of the sea over the islaiul with a mighty force, causing the dead to number more than six thousand: and one of the maids perished and was swept away, and none 97 IIMUIU . save the angels knoweth where she Ueth. And in all the books of the chronicles of storms, none so great were recorded. Now in that day, the prophets who dwelt in the interior and among the hills and upon the plains, assembled themselves together and said unto the people, " I told you so. " And three of the maids grew weak-kneed and sent unto the authorities say- ing, " Send us away. " And they sent them. But the other eight said, " We will not forget our calling; we will not forsake our duty. " And on account of the much sickness and the many wounds, the great work which the maids did perform in those days, caused their slender hands to increase in size greatly, and their tender feet to wax very sore. And in that day there arose one Emma, whose surname was Eathmell, a woman of great purpose and much adored. And she sent unto the wise men of the stricken city, saying, " I will instruct the maids. On account of their great adversity, I wiU give unto them Imowledge, and they shall gather experience which no nurse before them hath ever gathered. " And the maids went hither and thither, according as she directed them, and grew deft in practice: and they sat at the feet of the wise men, and their knowl- edge increased greatly. And after many days, the wise men assembled themselves together and said one to another, " Behold, we are not able to teach the maids longer. " And they placed a parchment roll in the hands of the maids on which was written, " The maids are competent. " And it was so. Lucy Leon Smith, Class Historian. 98 I J Died— September 8, 1901.

" OyezI Oyez! The AtlienEeum Literary Society is now in Session. THIS cry has sounded pleasantly in the Histo- rian ' s ears many a Saturday night as he wit- nessed the calling to order of the Society. It has been his privilege for several years to be a member of the Athenteum Literary Society and to become familiar with its workings. He h as seen it during seasons both of prosperity and of apparent decline; and today he beholds it with a history of which it niay well be proud, and with a prospect of future usefulness and success to which it is ambitious to attain. In all literary contests the Athenaeum has had its full share of the h(mors. For the last four years it has had at least one of the two University rei)resent- atives against Baylor, and at one time both repre- sentatives. For the last three years the orator chosen to represent the University of Texas in the Southern Inter-State Oratorical Contest has been an Athenieum man: and this year three of the four speakers in the final preliminary contest for this lionor are members of the Athenfcum. For the year lii(i(»-19()l one of its members was president of the Southern Interstate Oratorical Association. If from our past record we may .judge of the future, no one can deny that our possibilities are great for winning new victories and achieving even greater success. IGO The Rusk Literary Society. •k rpll! - ' ttlP UK society has passed another niile- stoiie in its history. Prom a sinaU li( ' innin i ' in iss;! we have ' rown, l)iith in numbers and entlnisiasia, to be one of tlie prominent features in Unniver- sity work. " ■■ ■ Tlie year has been one fruitful of many yood results and a number of victories for our members. It has been our pride to demand prompt- ness and reg ' ularity in everything. It is our aim to do the j reatest g ' ood to the y:reatest number. For this purpose we have this year di ided our society into three sections for the debating; part of our pro- grams. Every member is given a chance at " declaim- ing, " at " orating, " at debating " with preparation, " and at debating extemjiore. Bt ' sides this, the vigor- ous training in parliamentary usages well repays the young man who joins fortunes with us. As proof of the value of society work, we point to the great num- ber of men prominent in public life — legislative and otherwise — who have been greatly aided by their knowledge of parliam( ntary law gained in society work. University life is greatly diversitied. but ours is not the least of its many interests. Within the past two years, both Faculty and R ' gents have shown greater recognition of this fact. A school of Oratory and Public Spealcing has been established, and the results are reflected in our societies and in our con- tests. The Rusk winners for the year are: Messrs. W. P. Z. (tKKM. n, W. M. Hilliakd and T. J. Ll. whon, winners of the Rusk- Athenaeum De- bate. Mr. T. J. Lawhox, Representative for the Uni- versity in the University of Texas — Baylor Debate. Messrs. B. B. Perkins and H. S. BiSHor , Uni- versity Representatives in the University of Tt ' xas — Tulane Debate. Mr. " Wilbfr p. Allen, University Representa- in the Southern Inter-State Oratorical Contest. We have be-en diligent: our rewards have been proportionately great. May a still greater number of students avail themselves of the opportunities of literary society work. W. H.

THE University Co-operative Society was organized in Jvuie, 1896, for the purpose of supplying the Univer- sity with books, stationery, and athletic goods at the lowest prices consistent with safe business methods. It is composed of members of the FaciAty and students who pay the annual fee of one dollar. The direc- tors consist of the Ci)mmittee of the Faculty on Book-Store and representatives chosen by the Society from the different classes and departments. No salaries are paid except to the clerks, two students who are thus as- sisted in making their way through the University. Sales are made at a uniform price to all persons con- nected with the University, but members of the Society receive at the end of the year a rebate in proportion to the total amount of their pui-chases.

Oldright. who were j jint owners, editors and business managers. Mr. Oldright died in the spring of 1 96, and Mr. Hill succeeded to the paper in its entirety, but at the beginning of the next session he asso- ciated a number of prominent students as re- porters. In the fall of 1 97 Mr. Hill sold The Akrihle to Jno. O. PliiUips. but retained the name which he subsequently gave to a weekly which was pubhshed for some time in Austin as a c«txT 5per: C7 Mr. Phillips changed the name of the college weekly to The Ranger. This paper he published at the University of Texas until June, 19tX». For the session l y?-! Mr. Jno. C. Palm was editor-in-chief. He was succeeded by Mr. Edward R. Kleberg for the session lsgs-9. For the session ls99-190Ci Mr. WUbur P. Allen presided over the destinies of The Ranger. In the winter of 1898-9 a rival to The Ranger was started in the University of Texas under the name of The Culendur. This enterprise was founded by Mr. R. W. Wortham as a semi-weekly. Messrs. H. Lee Borden and James H. Hart suc- ceeded Mr. Wortham as managers of The Cateinhn- iu June, 1899, and continued as same throughout the session 1899-1900. During the first part of that ses- sion Mr. EL EL Witt was the editor-in-chiet: his suc- cessor was Mr. L. L. Featherstone. Mr. Mont F. Highley succeeded Mr. F hillips as proprietor of TIte Ranger in June, 19 .»», and at the same time Mr. Borden became sole proprietor of T7ie Calemhir. Experience having shown that two papers could not exist financially, the two were con- sohdated. and in October, 19i », TIte Tejnin made its first appearance. Mr. Fritz G. Lanham was made editor-in-chief of the new paper and a competent staff of reporters was chosen to assist him. In the suc- ceeding January Mr. Lanham was compelled to with- draw from the University bec-ause of ill health and Mr. Frank T. West, a member of the board who had also served with Mr. Lanham on The Ranger staff the previous session of the University, was chosen to suc- ceed him. The other members of the board were continued as before and have rendered most valuable assistance. It is the purpose of those who have charge of T ie Tejran to make it truly representative of the University of Texas — to make it reflect the daily life of the students and Faculty of the institution. In this work it has the support of both Faculty and students. How well it has succeeded remains for others to say. We can only say that the effort has been conscien- tiously made.

You or Bob— Which? YOUR ti ' unk stood strapped and packed, ready for the midnight train. You bid your home- folks f ood-bye and turned your footsteps — wiiere? It was nine o ' clock when you hung your derby on the rack, and followed that " embodi- ment of all the world ' s grace " into the parlor. By ten you had advanced no further than the album stage; there were you and she turning over pages that you had looked at so often that you felt as if you had known " Uncle John " and " Aunt Kate " a hundred years or so. But to-night there was more touching and trembling of hands and blushing of cheeks than heretofore. You commented on the intelligent face of " Cousin Jack, " who had graduated with lionor from the University. " But no wcmder, " you said, " he had such an inspiration. I used to think that girls and books wouldn ' t go together at all: but now it seems to me that even a dullard could attain college laurels, if there w ere at home some little blue-eyed sweetheart who expected, believed him to be something great, who was proud with him when he had W(m a triumph, was tenderly sympathetic when victory had crowned another head. " Now thus far you had done- very well : you deserved a B, if n( it an A. But just then y( m turned a page, and Bob, the successful, was mockingly staring you in the face. It was not a Medusa look, but a proud chicken- cock look; audit transformed your soaring Pegasus to a shambling ass, which suited well your next flight: " Why, that empty-headed nincompoop of a Bob Wright could score many a success at college: for, of course, you would be glad to incite him to eff(n-t with sweetly-scented, bi-weekly letters saying, ' Dearest Bob, get that medal for your ownest darling, Bess, ' — that IS, I should think so, .judging by the way he ' s been bossing things out here lately. " " Indeed! " she answered, with a contemptuous curl of the lip. " Mr. Wright at least has tln ' nmnners of a gentleman. I hope your words to Anna Harley are less rough than these you use to me. They must be, else she would not think that you were the only person under the sun. Let your new flame be your ' inspiration, ' as you call it. And I trust from the bot- tom of my soul that she will inspire you to learn at the University how to act toward a girl. " She stalked to the piano, you to the window. She played a most fearful rag-time i)iece: you relocated the Lord ' s prayer. The faster she played the higher her nose rose into the air, and the higher climbed your vir- tuous indignation. Your summer ' scastlebuiltof rings and pictures and lock ' s of hair, crumbled under this mighty shock. Stit ' lly you marched out of the room, dowm the stei)s, down through the grove of great oak trees, attended by the music of thousands of tiends 198 ■.nm • W vr ' iicliiii.L; ' till ' sti ' iiiji ' s nf ll Id piniln ;is I ' lir ;is the { uto. You leaned on that, and looK ' ed and listened. Inside the parhu ' the 1ei-i ' ible battle ol ' sounds was still ratjinj;. Hut out tliere with you all was (|niet and beauty. The open space in front of the trate was eov- ered witli f rass, whose d(nvspanfj:led leaves the sniil- iwiX moon wove into a wide, wide shei ' t to clothe tlie earth witli the arb of peace. On tliis a frolicsome calf was wheeling and dancinf aixiut, supremely hap- py in his sintjle joy. But silence now is softly stealing; over all the scene: for the music has by dej rees died down to a calm. It is IjeconiiuK lower, sweeter, tenderer. But hark! it is rising a ain listen how uneven, broken, disconnected! The old instrument is sobbing. WhatI are you going back ' : ' Too late: the music is dead: the light goes out: the clock strikes eleven knells for you. You stand there, and look longingly back at the an- cient house wherein Love had painted his first beauti- ful picture for you. Now it is tittingl.v shroudt-d in the black shade cast b,v the trees. Suddenly shafts of moonlight pierce through opposing Ijranches, and fall in a circle around a chair on the front porch. And lookl there in that halo of glory, with her head bowed in her hands, sits a figure all in white. The leaves are whispering, " It ' s over, it " s over, it ' s over: " but far awa.y you seem to hear a tinkling bell calling, call- ing fleeing hope back to you. A faint sound the breeze beats 111 you can it be a soVjy Y ' ou tip acrctss the gallei-y, ;ind stand close beside her chair. All is still save the clock that marks the inarch of time toward midnight. A curl straggles down to fondle her ear. I ' ari ' ssingl.v.yet reverentially .Vou touch that wa.vward, warm, brown curl. Y ' ou seat yourself tn the great wide arm of the rocking-chair. Your breath come.s fast as one hand steals round to rest on a pulsing mass of silken fabric, while the other tilts back tlie sinning head till you are looking deep down into her tear-dim- med eyes. Many and many a time before this, wak- ing and dreaming, have you seen her face: what now are .you reading there? A storm is raging in her bosom, for you feel the delicate lace heaved and tossed Ijy the breasts beneath, as ships by the billows of a panting sea. Y ' ou draw her throbbing figure close, closer still to you: you bend low, lower, till her breath is hot upon your cheek. Now her lips are just be- neath y iur own, and — lireak into wild scmg, O happy mocking bird, gently swung by soft-voiced winds: mingle th.v glad notes with the far-off sounds of tinkling bells: a(M)d the world with waves of passionate melody surging up from thy k)ve-stricken heart: but in justice, O feathered accomplice of moonlight wooers, go thou to the window of poor Bob Wright, and there pour out some soothing lay to heal the wound of sad defeat. J- Barry Benefield. 199 ilil The Troubles of a Recent " Aluminum. I will have to ylve up: I believe it ' s no use: I ' ve thought ;unl I ' ve thouyht till my thinker is loose. I wanted to write you a sweet little rhyme Of ■ ' beloved Alma Mater " and " that hai)i)y time That I spent ' neath her walls: in her long, shady walks " ' (You know what I mean — just those sweet little talks, Such as all of us make when we have our degrees, And know that we ' re safe — if it was liy a squeeze.) Yes, I honestly tried, but I find it won ' t do; I ' ve looked all through Worcester and Webster ' s Ixiok. too. And there ' s nothing to rhyme with " l)eloved Alma Mater " In the whole Knglish language — except sweet jiotato. I started one verse and was getting on tine — in fact. 1 had actually reached the ninth line. And each of those lines was ten inches long. Oh: I wish you could hear it, ' twas nuch a sweet song I I sang of those ' ■hai)piest days of your life " , When you ' re always light-hearted, no trouble, no strife: And my words seemed to ripple in merriest glee When I sang of the " brooklet that danced through the lea: And then they would twitter and chiri), as you please When I sang of the " dear little birds in the trees: " But the ninth line wound up with " beloved Alma Mater. " And all I could say tlien was " big sweet jiotato. " Now. wasn ' t that hard V 1 declare it ' s a shame. And I don ' t know which set of ancestors to blame: But 1 know that if I had the privilege to coin Any word that I pleased, I would surely purloin A word from some language besides " sweet ])otato " To rhyme and make sense with " beloved Alma Mater: But I can ' t think of any. so I guess I must quit. I. become more discouraged the longer I sit. Just know that I love you. my dear Alma Mater — There it goes! Now, I guess I miint love sweet potato. 200 ■ k aHH ■ ,.....»...«»■ — ..I.MI»il. Shadows. HERE wiis once ii ( ' dUiicil ol ' the angels that attend mankind. A discussion arose as to who would lie cluiinuan. " (live us Cour- ai e, " said one. " His composure, Ixniring, and address are per- fect; bravery is required of him who must decide the (lucstions of this gathering. " " But, " objected anotlier. " I know a race of men to whom Courage has never come. How can this one deal with problems concern- ing those he laiows not? " And Courage could not be chosen. " I nominate Joy, " cried another bi-ight being: " Joy that overflows and tills all the world. Surely he who brings to mortals thi fruits of iiurity, beauty, gentleness, tenderness, love: surely such an one could guide our deliberatiims aright. " Thereat arose one of thoughtful and (juiet mien. who answered : " I saw a babe once, born into the woild on a pile of rags in the corner of a wretched garret. Its mother was a fallen cokired woman, who deserted it as soon as she was strong enough to walk. The father was a drunken thief, who perished on the scaffold. The babe grew to boyhood under the care of a woman who perfected his instincts for lying and stealing. He gave as a price foi ' life the service of a rational lieast whose soul was atrojihii ' d even before his bii-th. He became a man, a hater of work, a scr)f- fer and blasphemer at purity. The end came to him at the hands of a mob, who chained and burned him to death for an unnsimable crime. T do not think Joy ever found that life. " So Joy, too, was deciari ' d ineligil)le. " Sorrow touches the life of every created being, " softly spoke one. " To the rich, the poor, the titled, the humble, there comes this sad-faced angel. The Great Book records of the (me perfect man: ' Jesus wept I ' Death misses some, for Enoch, Elijah and Elisha escaped his somber visit. Sorrow stands waiting when a child is born, and the first sound it makes is a cry of pain. Not a day passes throughout his life that Sorrow does not enter therein. No one is so neglected and poor tluit some heart is not visited by Sorrow when he dies. Sorrow alone is tit to rule: for (mly she is universal. " For a moment silence reigned throughout the great host : then all proclaimed vS(n-row their choice, and she sad-faced and serene, took the seat of h(mor. ■X- -X- A man and a woman stood facing each other un- der a chandelier in a richly furnished jnirlor. " Good- bye. " shi said, looking at him steadily: and yet the lover detected a slight tremor in her voice. " Will you hear again my story? " he said. The JOl heavy lashes drooped her eyes, as she waited in silence. " It is simple, " continued he ; " I love you. I have given to you the strongest love man ever gave to woman in all the years of time. Wlien first I saw your face and heard the music of your voice I knew and recognized my soul- mate. I did not reas(m this out from an analysis of your characteristics ; it came like a flash of light from heaven, and has set my heart atune to the sweetest melody eartli-bound creatures may know. I love you as only a strong man with much life experience can love. When you treated my passi(m with cold unconcern I loved you; and, at last, after I had distanced my rivals and fought my way to recognition, when you bade me hope, I loved you still. I w(m your promise. You took my ring. Now, without a word of explanation, you send me from you. You can be cruel, but never unjust. This you will not do. " Waiting a moment, he added, in an ec- stacy of tenderness : " Sweetheart, Sweetheart, thou wilt not let this become true. Tell me T misunder- stood thee. " " Good-bye. " She was voiceless now. Her form trembled; a mist came before her eyes He, not touch- ing her outstretched hand, turned and left the room without a word. For he did not know, and a woman has not wit enough to teU. And he went out under God ' s silent sky — out into the moonlight that came softly through the leaves, making checkers of light and shade across his pathway. His face was drawn and set; his eyes liad the pitiful and imploring look seen in dumb animals as they await the death-stroke. The gate which had long been the love-tryst barred the way. He i aused a moment, saying sk)wly to himself: " The mind has a thousand eyes, The heart but one : Yet the light of the whole life dies When love is done. " Then the gate was shut, and he started down the long, long way alone. The scoffer will deride; the sentimentalist will call it a tragedy. Perhaps both are right. This truth is certain: In that hour a lover died, and a great soul was born into the world. Late one night in December I was aroused by a Western Union messenger boy who handed me a tele- gram, remarking as he did so : " I ' m sorry to trouble you this time of night, sir, but it is a death message. " With a sinldng heart I tore off the envelope and read : " Aunt Jane is dead. Come home. " John BelUtiinj. Throughout the long night ride, while speeding northward in darkness, made more intense by a cold, misty rain, my mind busied itself in recalling my boy- hood days, especially where my life had been touched by the kind and beneficent influence of Aunt Jane and Uncle John. Thay were a childless pair who lived on a farm adjoining my father ' s, and who, in response to the child-love tugging at their hearts, had bestowed on me a devotion almost pathetic in the intensity of its tenderness. To be sure they manifested it shyly — after the manner of country folk — except when I was alone with them at their home. There 1 was given ev( -iy indulgence and was heartily spoiled. In return for this preference I affectionately called tliem " Aunt Jane " and " Uncle John, " thougli neitlier was related to our fa in 11 v.

After suiipcr I ' liclc .(olm would I ' eK ' idc me witli tlii ' illin ; ' stnries of his prowess as a hunter and tishernian in early times ;dontr the Ohio river, and I would listen in open-eyed wonder, until Aunt Jane would insist that it was bed- time: then what a fuss she would make t?ettiny me warm ;ind comfortalile, tuekinj; in the covers, hunting for aniuiaginai ' y draft, and finally kissing me an affec- tionate good night. Often, after she fancied I was asleep, she would come back and stroke my hair and kiss my forehead; and one night she put her ht-ad alongside mine and cried softly until Uncle John came w(mdering, and l( Td her away with rough but kindly tenderness. Now, after the chances of fortune had long sepa- rated us, I was going to my former home to be chief mourner at my old friend ' s funeral. Uncle John met me at the gate in the early gray of the desolate Christ- mas morning. His cold hard hands made me shudder as they grasped mine. His face looked drawn and expressionless from many long nights of watching. " I hope you didn ' t mind coming, " he said, " but Aunt Jane ' s last request was that you should look after the funeral arrangements. She thought raebbe they might be some music: " then Ik added apologetically, after a pause, " You don ' t think you could get a preacher to say a tew words, could you, explaining how she was kind and neigiiborly and never cross nor nothingy " I choked back ii sob and told him that Aunt .Jane should have ;i fuueriil sermon if I had t preach it myself. I wired for a college mate who was pastor of a city church twenty miles north, asking him to come and bring four members of his choir. That after- noon he stood in the plain countr.v church with Aunt Jane ' s cofhn l)efore him and told the sweet story i)f her simple life — how she had ministered to the needy, nursed the sick, comforted the broktm-ln-arted, mak- ing of herself an angel of mercy. As he spoke of her gentle wifehood, unblessed by a baby ' s prattle, I thought the calm of Uncle John would be broken: he gripped my hand hard as he held it under the bench where no ime might see. There was a prayer and tlie choir sang " Rock of Ages " : and then, with extjuisite pathos, their voices softly breathed " In the Sweet By and By. " " Them were her favorite tunes, " whis- liered Uncle John. At the grave, after the custom of the country- side, the coffin was opened for a last look at the face of the dead. Uncle John impassive still and I went up together. I looked at the calm, finely formed brow, the lips that had never murmured, now shut with the old-time firmness: her hands resting at last were seamed with the toil of a long life of patient service. Some divining soul had found a baby cap, all soft lace and delicate frills, among Aunt Jane ' s hidden treas- ures. This was lying on her arm close to her bosom. When I saw it and heard Uncle John, murmuring hoarsely, " Janie, Janie. " I cried aloud: so that my friend had to come and lead us both away. When I hurried by to take leave of Uncle .John the next morning, he spoke with a freedom that I had never heard before: " You were the mly child Janie ever had, " said he, " and every night when we prayed we said, " (Jod be good to our boy. ' Now that she is gone. I will say it just the same way. You won ' t mind? Do vou tliink :od will understands ' Patient and A-9 203 true, patient and true ' : them were the preacher ' s words about Aunt Jane. No one but me knows how he spoke the truth. She never mentioned her great sorrow, or how lonely the long days were when I was away in the tield at work. And I was silent, too; but we both knew. Good by. Come to see an old man when you can. " I carry an indelible picture of the experience of that two-days ' break in my busy life. In the fore- ground there is a bent and drooping figure of an old man, leaning on a battered gate : in the corner of the picture, shut away from him, are two hands, creased and lined with age and toil, holding a baby cap that was never worn.

ONLY A MONTH before, malarial fever had taken the father from this lonely cabin deep m the woods beside the lake. Now it was back for the little son. The even- ing? was almost gone. The mother sat at the side of the rickety cot out there on the front gallery in sight of the gleaming water — watching, watching, waiting. " Mamma, if I ' d get in a boat, an ' go an ' go till I got away across the lake yonder, don ' t you reckon I ' d come to heaven? ' Cause look now how the water rises higher an ' higher till it ' s kissin ' the old sun over there, an ' makin " him turn red like papa used to do when you ' d kiss him. An ' I believe that ' s where papa is. Won ' t he come home any more? Mamma, you ' member how we used to could tell when he was comin ' in the evenin ' . AVe jest could hear him sing- in ' far away: then it " ud get louder: then we ' d hear his oars goin ' ' clock-lock, ' ' clock-look, ' an ' gettin ' faster an ' faster the closter he got. We ' d meet him at the landin " , an ' he ' d Idss us, an ' give me little shells. an ' take me a boat-ridin ' . An " when I g()( s to heaven I wants liini to — " The little fellow sat up suddenly and strained forward listening. A smile lit up his face, telling all his tale of joy. " Don ' t he sing sad-like this time, mamma " ' I hear his ' clock-lock ' now. Let ' s go to the landin ' to meet him. " He was silent for a moment, then spoke on. He is again in the boat for one of those rides of the happy days gone by. He calls out in the old playful tone : " Good-bye, mamma. Papa says you look mighty sweet standin ' there in your white dress, with your head shinin ' like a lump of gold, an ' your cheeks red like the rose in your hair : but we ' U have to leave you. Maybe we ' ll come back after you sometime. Good- bye, mamma: good-bye. " And he sank back, softly laughing to himself. The lake murmured a sad little song. The tall old pines sighed and whispered among themselves. The sun went down the " gleaming arch, " and stood with reddened eye far across on the western water ' s edge. The mother sat alone with her grief. J. Barry Benkfield. A Question of Property. itrainfii " tL Be hf happy ' i ' D ' ' SAT in my law office one day last August and looked lazily down the road past the court- house square. Over at the store the inevitable crowd of country Solons whittled sticks and handled the national ad- ministration with ease and iKiiorance. A few scrubby horses with roached manes and scrubby tails stood, with heads down, at the hitch- ing rail. A ccmple of pigs rooted and grunted around the store steps, and a corporal ' s guard of stately geese waddled and hissed in the shadow of an oak that stood in the road. The morning was as yet too young to be sultry, and the teams were sk)wly congregating from the outlying farms, and the men were lazily bantering each other and swapping postoflice gossip. I sat with my feet on the window-sill, looking down the road. Far oft " down the dusty road, whert- the heat swam against the cool dark green of the woods and the dust rose in occasional whirls, as a gust of hr)t air struck the road in patches, I could see an old negro hobbling along on the path that followed the road as it wound around the farms and ci ' ossed the creek before toiling slowly up the hill to the village. He was working along slowly, and just as he reached the hill a young farmer hauled up his team a the side of the old darkey, and the old manclamb ! -! over the wheel and sat down im the box which invari ably forms a rattling accompaniment to the bed of every farm wagon: and soon the tfam rattlpd and jangled up to the store, the farmer hauled back on the lines, the mules stopped short and slid a few paces, the shuck collars slid up to the mules ' necks till stopped by their ears, and the whole rattling outfit came to a complete, if not dignified, standstill. Tlie young farmer jumped to the ground, tied the mules to the rack, and sidled cautiously around until he could unhook the chain traces. This being accom- plished, he paid no further attentiim to his team, but joined the Solons on the store porch. The old darkey climbed over the wheel labor- iously, stretched the rheumatic kinks of sixty winters out of his uncertain limbs, and started slowly across the square toward my office. As he neared the win- dow, I recognized him even before he removed his hat and bowed in his delicious ante-bellum manner. I opened the door as he trudged around to the fr(mt and came in, hat in hand, declined a chair with a ma- jpstic wave of his hand and remained standing, as is 20; the custom of old darkies of his day and generation. " Marse Charley, I ' se in a peck o ' trouble, an ' ef twarn ' t fo ' ol ' ' Squire Riggs alettin ' me out on my own recognizability, so ' s I could git my tine, I spec I ' d be down in dat jail yit, long of dem udder no ' count niggers. " I expressed my surprise that an old man of his habits and reputation should have gotten into trouble. He waited for me to get through and then went on without comment: " You see, Marse Charley, it was dis a way. Me an ' my ol ' ' oman had a fuss over dot no ' count son ' o ourn an ' I pushed her out inter de yard an ' she went and had me arristed an ' dey fined me a dollar an ' costs. But de Jedge tol ' me he ' d let me go (m my own recognizability, or somepin lak dat, so ' s I could make my tine. " So I goes home an ' looks ' round for somepin to pawn to raise dat dollar an ' costs. An ' , boss, ef you remembers dat cabin er mine, dere ain ' t much to pawn in it. An ' I looks ' round and finally I sees dat red silk dress o ' my ol ' ' oman ' s, what de dead wife o ' ' Squire Riggs herself done gib her jes ' a few days ' foreshe lef ' him. An ' I stand an ' look at it an " it seems lak I see her lak she was in dem ol ' days when she an " Marse Riggs lived in dat ol ' house on de hill yander, an " somehow it seems lak I can ' t pawn dat. Den I thinks of dat hole dat dey calls de calaboose, an " I wraps de skirt up an ' I takes it into town. But all de way I keeps thinkin " : " Sposede beautiful Missus was to know I was a-takin ' her skirt to dat ol ' dii ' ty Jew. " An ' it seems lak I can ' t do it.

The ( dd nei ress wore a subdued air, in marked contrast to the bellig- erent mien which she had so recently borne. To- gether they walked over to my ottice and I o])en ' d the door and admitted them. The face of the Judge was wreathed in a quizzical smile as he took the old woman by the shoulder and shoved lier gently over toward the f)ld man :ind said • (uietly: " " Vou two old fools go home aiifl behave yoni ' selves.

The Judge and I st(K)d at the window watching them as they trudged along, the old woiniin leaning on the old man ' s arm, till a turn in the road hid them from sight.

T»T» » I An Old Song. LTKUTENANTCTIAKLES HARHOW. Com- pany I). Thirty-tifth U. S. RfKiilars. sat on a licncli in the park loolriiiK up at tlip clius. His c-ij ar was fraKi ' ant and his thoughts sei ' ene. In the troc above him tile sparrows were chattering. A red squirrel peered down at liini curioiisly. Tlic noises of tlic city came to him softened by distance to a sootliin ; ' drcme. Near by a hidden stream murmured softly. The i)( ' oi)lo passinf paused to look admirinjj:ly at the stalwart soldier: this, too, ho found agreeable. He thought that he deserved it. He had not yet become hardened to his promotion. Mien the others were flinching before the tire of the enemy, he had seized a fallen flag and in a spasm of courage had borne it on in advance of the line, yelling to the others to follow. And they had followed, and the enemy had been driven from their entrenchments. He had come out of it with an arm dangling helplessly at his side: but that was no matter. The Colonel had spoken well of him and he had been promoted. His arm was well now and he would return shortly to his regiment. Doubtless there would be other daring charges to be led, and possibly more wounds and promotions. But before those, there wa.s another C(mquest to be attended to. Something turned warm inside him as he thought of it. He had had heart afFaii ' s before. l)iit tliey had been youthful wealoiesses mere trifles. This was different. He leaned back against the trunk of a tree and s(|ninted through the leaves at a small piece of sky. while he recalh-d the incidents of the preceding night. He had moved through a throng of pe iple with Iht hand upim his ai-m. He had heard them wliispering, " the fairest woman in a dozen States " : and he quite agreed with them. She was beautiful. Her face was like a full-ripe peach, and her hair so dark that at times it looked blue; and her eyes were deep brown seas full of unfathomable things. The dimple in her chin was pure bravado: he had always c(mtended that a dimple in a woman ' s chin had no earthly use except to be kissed. He had not progressed that far yet. He remembered that she had not talked mu( h. He could not recall a single opinion she had expressed. He wcmdered if she had reaUy not said anything: or had he been too much taken up with looking at her to listen. No doubt she knew that it was unnecessary for her to talk. Her face was quite eloquent enougli. He had learned a good deal about her. Her name was Geraldine rather too much like a novel, but it might do. The family was alJ right: they counted a governor, a ma.yor. and several lesser dignitaries am(mg them. That was not to be disregarded, now that he had been wounded and was a lieutenant. 211 In a few hours he would see her ag iin. They were going to a concert to hear Madame Somebody sing. He believed she had said that the music was simply divine. Theii ' going " was her suggesticm; he would have accompanied her to a much worse place. Possibly he would have an ((importunity to say some- thing to her, just a tew words, as a soldier should: then he could go back and whip the enemy unaided. Some one came down the path toward him burn- ing a tune. As the song came nearer it fell into his meditations, insinuating itself boldly in among his fancies, and becoming a part of them. For some rea- son it was a disquieting element. A strain of unrest, almost a minor, crept into the rhythm oi his thoughts. He wondered if he had heard the song before. His memory groped blindly for a time, then finding a clew sped rapidly backward. He could hardly guess where it would stop. The singer came on. It was a young girl in a short frock. She turned toward him a fresh, inquisi- tive face, smiling approvingly. Then, as he smiled in return, she Hushed redly, flirted him a last look, and went quickly on, still singing. He caught a line t)r two of the song as she passed : " You are going far away, far away from poor Jeannette, Thei ' e is no one left to love me, and you, too, may forget. " Memory whirled liim backward four years. He saw a white house set in a grove of live-oaks. Uptm a high limb the mocking-birds were nesting. From the largest tree hung a rope swing, and in it sat a young girl. She was little more than a child, though her face as he saw it had a deeply serious look. Her eyes were very blue, like the hearts of the buffalo-clover: and lior fair curls fluttered about her forehead and cheeks under her pink sun-lionnet. Before her stood a youth in soldier ' s uniform, a manly fellow, proud of his new distinction. He held the rope of the swing, and was talking to her earnestly. She smiled up into his face, though there were hints of tears in the cor- ners of her eyes. The mocking-bird in the tree above drojjped down to a low limb and watched the tablnau curiously. The girl put her foot on the ground and set the swing going, and as it swayed back and forth she sang with affected cheerfulness : ' ■ )h. if I were a Queen of France, or, still better, Pojie of Rome. I ' d have no fighting men abroad and weeping maids at liome. ' " " Katie, you mustn ' t sing that old song any more, " the youthful soldier said, taking hold of the rope and bringing her awkwardly to a stand. " It ' s not true, and it makes you unhappy, I will come hack, you Iniow I wiU. And I won ' t forget. ' ' Lieutenant Charles Barrow arose from his seat under the elms and threw away the remnant of his cigar. He intended thereby also to put away unpleas- ant reflections. He passed out of the park, and moved down the street to where the current of life flowed strongly. He liked to feel it pulsing around him. It brought him back to realities; there was no time for things forgotten in that busy tide of men and women. He paused at a street corner to watch the people pass. Prom a room far away upstairs somewhere came the wail of a violin. It was no practiced haiul held the bow, yet the strings spoke plainly : ■ " When you wear the jacket red and the licautiful cockade, (_)h. I fear that you ' 11 forget all llic prnmisrs , ou " ve made. " He frowned impatiently and passi ' d on down tlu ' 212 alk stropt. Ho IVlt tliiit it WHS ;i rc|ii ' (i:icli, ;iii(l In ' re spnted it. A fpw hours liitoi- lie s;it in :i box it tlif tlii ' iitt ' i- with Miss (ipraliliuf Cmuts. Hci- chcoks were rose red, and her eyes went hkc wine td liis licMd. Hr frit a touch of the madness tliat had coiiic over liiin as iw led that charge over tlie breastwoi ' ks of tlio cnt ' m.v. He was dimly conscious that there were people around him, and wondered why tliey were intruding, and tli - noise was unpardonable. Rut jn ' cscntly lie forgot the noise and tlio jKMipIo in looking at her. Siic was saying something al)out the people as they came in, but he liardly lieard it. He thought he liked her better when she did not talk. It was a fleeting tliouglit, and he put it away as unwor- thy. She was in every respect gkjrious. Soon the orchestra began to play. He resented that, too, butfound that he was not compelled to listen. Somebody came out and sang something and when it was tinished the girl clapped her hands daintil.v. " Wasn ' t tliat perfectly lovely! " she exclaimed. He agreed that it was. " But the last number will We the best, " she con- tinued. " Have you ever heard Madame Savoni sing? " He had to admit that he had not. " Well, you certainl.v have missed a treat, " she went on. " Everybody thinks she is simply grand. She sings one song in liarticular that is perfectl.v beautiful. I don ' t remem- ber the name of it, but everyl)od.v is singing it now. " Other jieople came out and sang. They Avere really good, and at length he found courage to take his eyes off the girl and listen. She occupied herself in examining him. He was rather good-looking, she thought. She woiiflei ' ed what liei- mother would say. Hii t, then, lie was a lieutenant and had bi-en wounded. At last came Madame Savoni ' s turn. The people cheered lustily as slie came foi ' ward. The orchestra struck into a (|uaint old air. fjieutenant Barrow stai ' ted and frowned. What had thi-y to do with that song? it was su -h a common tiling, surely she would not sing it. I ' .ut the frown ] ft his face as she began to sing, ;ind he leaned forward and ]isten ' (l intently. The lights danced ludicrously, and the people were l)obbing theii ' heads like a lot of idiots. Then the lights and the peiijile vanished nnd he saw only tiie singer. Her voice was not strong, but sustained enough to reach the farthest corner of the room, with a p;i- thetic little French accent that fitted the song well: " Vou are going far away, far away from poor .leannette. There is no one left to love me, and you, too. may forget: 13ut my heart will still be with you wherever you may go — ( an you look me in the face and say thesameto me, Jeannot? " Her eyes wandered over the audience until they found the young lieutenant in the box: there for a moment they lingered questicmingly. He wondered why she should have singled him out from the rest. He frowned again, but fin-got his disjileasure as she continued the song. He looked thrcnigh her eyes to a far Southern land. He heard the south wind rust- ling in tlu ' live-oaks, and smeUed the breath of the buffalo-clovi-r, as she sang: •Wlicii you wear tlie jacket red and the beautiful eoekade, t)|i. I liar tliat you ' ll forget all the promises you ' ve made. Willi your gun upon your shoulder and your bayonet by , our side. uu ' 11 be taking some proud lady, and making her your bride. " 21.3 The siiif4:er tinished and the people rose to i n, smiling reminiscently, and humming the pathetic little catch. Barrow came to himself with a start and discovered the girl beside him. He frowned inwardly. " How did you like it? " she asked, as he pu.sheda way for her through the crowd. He glared at her and grunted unintelligibly. She was very close to him, and he noticed that her forehead was too low, and her nose was a trifle flabby at the end. He wondered why she did her hair in that hideous pompadour: pos- sibly it was the style. She ignored his surliness and continued enthusiastically : " Oh, I think it was perfectly beautiful, all of it: and that last sad little song — oh, it makes me cry every time I hear it! " They were outside in the dark and she cuddled close to him, but he did not notice it. His thoughts were flying, flying, and a voice inside him was sing- ing, singing. Miss Geraldine Courts wondered mildly when she received Lieutenant Barrow ' s note informing her that he had gone home to spend the remainder of his furlough. In view of his past actions this seemed to her a little sudden. It had not occurred to her before that he might have a home. She hoped he would not be g(me l(mg; he was rather good-looking, and, then, he had been wounded. In a sleepy Southern town the evening sun was stretching long shadows eastward. The air grew fresh with the hope of night, and the earth slowly re- vived from the heavy languor of the July day. There was a stir of life around the white house in the live- oaks : the flutter and cackle of chickens, the lowing of cows waiting to be milked, the whinny of a liungrv horse. In the swing under the big live-oak, a girl sat looking out to the rim of hills that fringed the eastern horizon. She had k)oked across there often wonder- ingly, trying to see beyond the vague blue haze that hung ever above that far, green barrier. Her eyes, from long gazing, had assumed a far, wondering look. Dowm the road toward the gate a man came sing- ing, lustily, a quaint old air. The girl heard, and with a swift little pain, looked again out to her baflling hills. She wanted to run to the gate and cry out to the singer, but thought that would be too bold. Then she wanted t(» run away into the house and hide, but that would have been cowardice. So she sat where she was and swang, while her heart beat time. The man came on caroling blithely: " Oh. if I were the Queen of France, or. still better. Pope of Rome, I ' d have no fighting men al)ro;i(l and weepinjj maids at home. " The song stopped abiiiptly : the gate clicked. The girl turned away her head pretending not to hear. The man came on, tiptoeing now to catch her by sur- prise. A quick sprhig, a little scream, — then she snuggled up in his arms. " Oh, Carll " said sht ' : it was so kmgl I began to fear that you would forget. " " Forget! " he answered, kissing the glad tears out of her eyes. " Why, you dear little goose! How could I ever forget! " The mocking-bird sprang aloft with a delirious shriek of melody. Over the meadow the evening wind stole gently, wafting the breatli of the buffalo-clover. The youth stood besid( the swing and pushed it gently to and fro. The girl smiled C(mtentedly. lie noticed that liercycs were pci-IVct hluo: and lici ' liaii- was not pom]Ki(l(iur. A.

Little weejjing Willie sat beneath a weeping willow. Some ■•the town-crier " called him as he bawled the live- long (lay. S ibl)ing. crying, all the while to while the time away. He had advertised a trifle in the daily jiress Hut for just a tiny share of jxM-fect happiness: Yet his fate was quite as bitter, quite as moist his eyes, As before the hapless day he went to advei-tise. Then he sent a note to Heaven in his deep distress For a little contribution to his happiness: And there came a little maiden all his grief to smother. But the lovelight in her eye was beaming for another. So he sobs the livelong day, whether on his pillow Or mourning gloomily away beneath the weeping willow: Still " the town-crier " he is called, so he ' ll ever be.

' ' 215 The Lady and The Black Band. i GROUPE of stags lounged about the door and ■ vatc-hed the leaders untangle a German twist- up. Presently out of chaos streamed a long • ray of light. Fifty girls, looking like a path- way border of many-colored roses, wound about and finally stopped in a long line m one side the hall. At the end nearest the door, absolutely motionless, her eyes full of bright interest on the men forming in line on the opposite side of the hall, stond a tall, black- haired girl in a trailing gow l of misty white. Her long white arms were pushed down at her sides, their beauty being at once marred and enhanced by a three- inch bund of black velvet ribbon that bound the left (me half way above the elbow. From the zest of look and tcme vouchsafed her Ijy the stag-group, she was evidently a stranger. " Gad I Aint she a stunner V " exclaimed an inele- gant Junior, in lowered tones. " She ' s the condensed extract of a whole peach- orchard I " declared the same kind of Senior Law, with emphasis. " Have you heard any new theories about tluit black velvety " asked a third speaker. " They say now it ' s mourning for a lost lover, " said a fourth. " That ' s no good, " said the Senior Law: " she ' s notoriously engaged. You can see her ring from here. I ' ve heard she makes herself almost foolish about the fellow. Burton — you Iniow she ' s visiting Burtim ' s sister — Burtcm says she never gets less than two let- ters a day from him and sometimes three or four. Lord ! I wonder how he stands the pressure! " " He stands it all right, " said Burton himself, who had just crossed the lobby with his hat on. " I ' ve got one in my pocket now, came by the last mail. Fifth to-day. I guess he ' wants his Looloo. ' I do ' nt blame him a bit, though. About that velvet band. I ' m in favor of the red snake theory. She ' s such a charmer. Aw say, fellows, dcm ' t jolly me. She ' s the one love of my life. " And Burton assumed a very sickly expression of countenance, which, however, failed to convince. " Stag lead! " called the man with the whistle, and there was a general rush. Only Burton and the Senior Law were left standing in the doorway. " Burton, " said the latter, " I m slowly wasting away from curiosity about that black band — never had such a bad case. And you know curiosity ' s my long suit. Wonder what she ' d do if I ' d nnk her why she wore it? " I ' m going to take Iut Ikjuic .hicU brought her, you know. But he got a telegram about half an hour ago calling him home.

" When did you tirst miss it y " asked the Senior Law in sympathetic tones. " Just as we finished that misei-able fan figure, " answered his companion disconsolately, and went into details. The Senior Law was syiiii)athetic until they were vei ' y near tlie I ' .ui-ton ' s. Then " Wliat woidd you give for it right now? " he f|ues- tioned gaily.

They had fl I been desk-mates at the public schnnl in their native town: they had been rivals for tirst honor there, ju ' epariny their less(ms together, and feeling oidy the waruu ' st friendship for one an- other, no nnitter how close the rivalry. They had still been ood friends when at Commencement they had found that they had tied, and that a little puj;- nosed Dutch irl had beaten them both. They had entered the State University to.i ethei ' , and for four years had been room-m ates and close friends there. Then, in the grood course of time, which dt ' velops many thinjjs. they had -listen atten- tively! — fallen in love, both of them, with the self- same girl They tell me that she was pretty, as ffirls go, and kind-hearted, and otherwise interesting; that neither of Uw boys could have been blamed for losing his heart to her. Now, Wells was a handsome, talented fellow, full of life and laugh, while Raleigh was a slow-going grinder, with a hard face and very grutf manner. The girl involved, in order to surprise Wells for all I know, developed a preference for the hard-faced man. Wells was what is sometimes called a sport, in his way, and up to the time of the love-alfair of which we are speaking had depended largel.v on A- 10 steady old Raleigh to help him out of trouble finan- cially, whenever a t imely loan could be of assistance to him: as a sport always does upon someone. But now they were rivals, not for honors, but for prefer- ence, and Raleigh seemed to have the preference, and Wells was sore. There was a coolness. And here it is May, next ti) the last month of the term in their graduating year. They still roomed to- gether, but ever between them, more impassable than a spike-topped, rock wall, stood a little dimple- cheeked girl. They had not much to say to each other these days, and were even beginning to see faults in one another : each to suspect tliat perhaps he had. all these years, been a little deceived in the other. So it is May of the last term. Wells, the sport, gets in late of evenings from social and other engage- ments most of the time. Often during this month of May he finds the room vacant, and the steady-going grinder does not get in till the early hours of the morning. Little does Wells suspect it, and you will hardly believe it, but it is true that Raleigh has de- cided that he, the grinder, going out of school-days so soon, leaving all the pleasures and opportunities of college life forever behind him, ought to take with him a broader view of it all than he could take should he leave school today: that he ow( s it to himself to enjo.v a little sjiorting life while he is yet a school-boy lilii before he begins building at the cottage for the Uttle girl. And so he has. with great pains, undertaken to master some betting games with cards. O, my lit- tle dears, remember this saying of mine : Beware of cards! They are not profitable. Raleigh is learning and playing games with them : hence his frequent late hours. Wells supposes that he stays out stud,y- ing with some of his grinder friends. Wliat is this? Wells holds in his hand a wrinlded piece of paper which he has picked up off of the floor. Before he has time to think of the right or wrong of the matter he is reading it. It runs: " My dear uncle : I never saw you in my life, and have no claim on your generosity except in that you happen to be my mother ' s brother. I am here in the State Uni- versity, and have expected to graduate next June : but my funds, which I had saved up at bookkeeping, have given out, and I am in debt. If .vou could Irindly make me a loan of one hundred dollars— " Here the writer had stopped, crumpled the paper into a ball and thrown it upon the floor. Willis was alone in the room. After reading the paper he sat for a long time staring at the wall. " Can it be possible I " he said. Raleigh had a habit of talking in his sleep when- ever he was troubled over any matter. Wells was used to that, and had heard, time and again, all tluit the most greedy curiosity could have wished to hear con- cerning his connection with the little dimple-faced girl. But tonight thci ' c is sometliingnew: something startling. Raleigh will not write to his uncle for money. His uncle is proud and distant : left home for Guatemala twenty-tive years ago, and has shown no interest in his relatives since that time. But Ral- eigh must have money. His mother ' s watcli, her dy- ing gift to him, is in pa .. Poker has ruined him. And lie is — he groans and weeps even in his sleep to say it — he is defaulter as treasurer of a literary soci- ety — fifty dollars short there — must raise a hundred doUars at once or be disgraced. There they lay, my children, side by side, on that beautiful night in May, the hard-faced grinder who had turned sport, as is done in many instances every year of our Lord, and the light-hearted spend- thrift who, for the first time in his life, had stopped to think seriously on a serious questitm. As Wells listened to the broken ejaculations of his rival-friend, the briglit old da.vs of childhood, when he and Raleigh were the staunchest and most intimat friends, were revolvhig in roseate hues Ix ' fore liini. Breaking in annmg those hallowed scenes now and again, ajipeared the fair, sweet face of a girl. The sweet and winsome face of a girl, whidi had, ever.vtimeit arose, the pecu- liar effect of dispelling tlioughts of Raleigh as a boy- hood chum and of placing liim off yondei ' in the Iiateful position of successful rival fni- the love of a girl. " Poor old Raleigh! " murmered Wells, as lie la.v looking out on the moon-lit niglit. " Poor, iioor old Raleigh! All his hard-earned funds gone so easily and he needing them so terribl.v. Raleigh, the big- gest-hearted, hardest-working, most honorable fellow in the world, in this ti-rriljle predicament and she little thinks it! Ah! She may find out after all that her little god is not so per fi ' ct as lie might be. Rut it is hard (m hlni. Poor, old Raleigh! Pooi-. old true- hearted Raleigh! " Wells, the sport, lay awake a long time thinking about it all. 220 Early tlic t ' nllnwin ' iiKiniitiLr Wells luifilil havp been SITU walkMiiK ' liurricill.v toward town, and any t ' liciid of his incctin; liini ini ht liavo bccii iniprossed with the look of earnest determination wliich j lowed upon his face. " A fellow ou i-ht to ho able to Kt ' t a start pvaticintj law without the Kepoi ' ts, ' " he nnirniured as he walked alonji ' . " I have had lots of fun out of my little patri- mony: it has come easily and K ' ( ' ne easily; and now it is about used up, anil I ' ve j ot to start at the bottom as a lawyer anyway, so I will try to manage without the Reports. RaleiKli must be saved from disf ' race. " Entering ene of the bankinii ' houses on Congress Avenue, he drew out one hundred dollars. ' H. ' then walked out several Ijloeks on West P )Ui ' th sti ' eet and stopped at a little neglected-looking frame building. " O, yes, " said an old. l)ald-headed Ne-stor whom he interviewed there, " pay nie enough, and I can counterfeit any postmark in the world, but you will have to satisfy me that you are not going to get me into trouble. " Wells made a general statement of the case. " Good, " said Nestor, as he gathered his mate- rials togethei ' and went to work. A letter for Raleigh. Postmark, Guatemala. He opens it and utters a startled exclamation. An old hundred dollar bill is enclosed, and he holds it up and gazes upon it as if it were the ( Jorgon ' s head. " Phe letter runs : Guatemala, April 21st. Deak i;i ' iii;w : 1 notici ' in a Texas i)aper which 1 received yester- day that you are in the State I ' niversity and will graduate in the Law Department in .lune. Enclosed I hand . du an old hundred dollai- bill which I have had for twenty-live years, and jirobably shall never need badly. Put it to good use. Do not answer this letter. The answer will not reach me if you do: I do not get my mail at (Uiatemala. Trusting that you will make of yourself a better man and citizen than I have ever been, I have the honoi- to sign myself Your uncle. John Si.ms. Raleigh sits looking at the letter and the bill, and big tears run down his cheeks. Wells felt reasonably proud of his generosity. He did not kee|) the affair secret wlien the heroic emotion had passed off, l ut told one ortwoof his best friends. They were delighted with his magnanimous ti ' eatment of his rival, and so expressed themselves. They had to tell their best friends about it. of course, so it gradually got published among the students. While it served to bring Raleigh into disgrace, which was but justice to him. Wells gained great credit by the transaction. No doubt his children, sons of the dimple-faced giil. well Iniow to-day, and tell when they can get listeners, the story of their father ' s heroic sacrilice.

Whose turrets, spires and minarets in proud Array, betipped with " old. direct the view To where are set the halls of Paradise, The niany-mansioned palace of the skies. Kach moment brings new visions : colors fade And reappear in glory newly made In fonts ne ' er used before; bright crimson grows To ])ink — the rose of baby cheeks at morn : And, over all, unwonted silence flows Sweet as the soft surprise when love is born. Dim figures hurry homeward ; suddenly From heaven ' s deep a star peeps lovingly — The day is done. A westward mist beclouds the tintless sky; The deepening twilight settles desolate : Afar I hear the lonely curlew ' s cry, A lost s(nil calling to its absent mate; A dying ttash of glory touches all, A myriad hov ' ring shadows quickly fall — And night is on. — Jdliii A.

Moreover, he needed the money to take his second year ' s work in the University. And despite the doubtful shaldntf of heads when the " boy-master " ar- rived, nevertheless, within a •■- ' •. month he was a hero, nay, a Hon, if tiler e be any lions in the piney woods. For lie had taken a class in the Sunday School: accepted all invitations to " spend the nij ht. " and, above all. issued monthly reports testifyinj " to tlie fact tliat right here under his protecting wing were collected the State ' s brightest scholars. But alasl during file next month tlie breezes began to linger at tlie door of the little scliool-house. and then to whispi-r abroad ah 1 such tales, to-wit : that on the slightest provocation the " perfessor " would " keel) in at recess " the Latin class : that the three plump Misses constituting said class, together with the master, seemed to devote all their time to one v( rb: and that never were the haclvneycd phrases illustrative of said verb translated with such amazing fervor or listened to with such exquisite pleasure. But not all of us can appri ' ciate tlie beauties of Catullus " language. And one morning there rode out of the woods beliind the temple of knowledge one who a few minutes later showed himself utterly insensible thereto. That fateful class was alime in the temple with the master and the verb . The trustee crept to a crack in the rear wall, and listened and looked. This is what he heard and saw : " Kittie, fe (into. " The master did not lu ' ed to say " translate " to these veterans. " I like you, " timidly answered blushing Kittie. " 1 think you are awful nice. " corrected gushing Susan. Penelope turned her black eyes on the " perles- sor ■ and thus gave her version: " I love you. " The eavesdropper laiew no Latin. He muttered, " There ' s deviltry goin " (m here.

She dropped her eyes, and turned the ring on her finger round and round, while the red of her cheeks overspread her face and neck. Then she gave the anxiously waitinK master a look that made him catch his breath. Softly the words of the translation fell from her lips " more slow than Hybla-drops and far more sweet " : " You have kissed me so many, many times. " The scandalized father and trustee sent up one unearthly yeU, flung wide the door, and stood towering, an avenger on the temple ' s threshold.

The window stood open, and far down the road, attended by a cloud of dust, flew the priest of knowledge, no hat on his head, but a Latin grammar in his hand.

Nkw Books by Wei.l-Known Authors. Fours Years a Junior Law — by Dick Bownnan. Wliat I Don ' t Know — by Shurtleff ( a juiniplilet of seven pajjes, large type and wide margin). A Bird " s-Eye View of the World: or How Tilings Looiv from Above— by Barbee. The author shows a remarkable grasp of the subject. The work is of especial interest to the lowly. CMrls I Have Known: or A Study in Feminology -by Prof. L. (J. Bugbee. This is quite a voluminous production composed chieHy of statistics based upon actual experiments. While perhaps too exhaustive for the general reader, we recommend it iiin ' eservedly to those especially interested in the subject. Married Life— by H. Y. Benedict. This work takes a very roseate view of matrimony. The author indulges in extrav- agant figures illustrative of the blessings incident to the mar- ried state. His pages fairly teem with poetical fancies and are pregnant with purest optimism. Hew-ould have us believe that the old maid is a weariness and an abomination, and that the old bachelor deserves to be .shot. He vigorously pro- tests against the views advanced by W. J. Battle in his article • ' Why I Am Single, " and literal ly demolishes with his fiery bolts of sarcasm the position taken by J. A. Lomax in his late work. " The Beauties of Bachelorhood. " The work is hand- somely bound and replete with illustrative designs and archi- tectural drawings of comfortable and convenient homes, in- deed we fear this feature is too much enipliasized, as tlie Mv leuves, litli ' iiage, margins and covers are all atllicti ' d uilii a plethora of the sketches. The w n-k is refreshing througliout and slioulil liml ;, |d;u ' . ' in every hon;e. The Beauties of Boozing: or Paradise Regained Up-to- Date — Edited jointly by Messrs. Giddings Stone and George Robertson. My Oratorical Triumi)hs l)y Wilbur P. . llen. Smiles — by William Lamdin Prather. Jr. The fore iiart of this vfork contains an extensive discussion seeking to dis- tinguish between a smile proper and a commonplace grin, throughout which we must confess the author is extremely vague. But when the writer comes to treat of the futiction of the smile, he warms up to his subject. On the whole, however, the readgbleness of the work is due more to the enthusiasm of the author, than to the value of the conclusions reached. Nine Months in a Dirty Sweater: or The Laundries Baf- fled — b - the S. A. E. Fraternity. As is the case with every book which is jointly edited, parts of it are good and ])arts bad. We would especially commend the work of E. C. t ' on- nor in illustrating the edition. The frontispiece is especially noteworthy, being a representation of a spirited struggle be- tween Dudley K. Woodward and Frank Clibson for the pos- session of the said sweater. The attitudes of the combatants are realistic in the extreme, and both figures are full of action. The countenance of each is set and determined, and it is a hard probletu to tell which will wear the sweater that day. The closing pages are written l v L. c,). ( ' . Lamar. . s he sees tills garinent. which has done sucli nolile service fur nine long months without i-est or water, folded u|i and put away in a dark musty closet, to remain there neglected throughout tlu ' summer, his words become tender, and he attains true pathos. Hard is the heart of him who can read this touching ti-ibu ' e unmoved. Minus a fi ' W minor defects, tlie whole book is a work of art, instructive, entertaining and liclpful. •SM Answers to Correspondents. Jessh Mii.LEK. — Yes, Thk rAi ' iTs will lie (lilt hcliire ( ' omniincement. and your name will Ih ' in it. Most all the students think you write very well: and smiic even go so far as to assert that you are quite literary. This last is often disputed, but the fact is cited that you have hccii to Yale, which immediately silences every protest. We had rather not express our opinion anent what you term your " searchiufj- criticism " and " jjentlemanly e.xposi- tion, " farther than just a simple caution a;;iiinst allowiiiL; criticism to deii ' enerate into mere yush and yali. Vr share with you the opiiiiciii thai the use of recondite expri ' ssions and windy references to liooks you have never read, hoodwink the average student into thinking you learned. )ii the whole we should advise you to read more and write less. De.vr Mlss. — From your descrii)tion, the youth can he none other than H. C. Dunbar, familiarly known as " Hand- some Hal. " Yes, he is eligible, or at least will be when he bt-eomes of age. His comple.x-ion is genuine so far as we have been able to ascertain: though we have a well-grounded suspicion that he blacks his eye-brows, and touches up the rims of the lids to give that " long dark language to the eye, " a l(t oriental maidens.

Fight shy. be patient, persistent, long-suffering, gray servently. and the |iri e may one day be yours. Cues Bryan. — Yes. we would advise you to buy a copy of The t actus this year: there is such a thing as cutting off your nose to spite your face. Kven if the reference to your " gift of gab " in last year ' s Annual were undeserved, remeni- l)er that " ' tis better be damn ' d than mentioned not at all.
