George is right — we know it because we see his Name in the Catalogue. What is his Biz? To draw his Pay and look wise. If it were not for the Profs., we would have nowhere to go. when our High School days are over. What will be- come of him when he dies? Do not ask. LESSON III. .

Equality. •:• -:- ■ -:- + A CIIAPTKR FROM " THE HISTORY OF THE I ' XIVERSITV OF TEXAS. " HE UNIVERSITY of Texas is a small, but powerful kingdom in the northern part of Austin. It is bounded on the west by the commercial " epublic of Alexander The Greak, on the north by Gracia Curia, a tributary state inhabited by a race of fair women whom not even the Amazons excel in strength and beauty, on the east by the Campus Martius, and on the south by a number of Grec ' an colonies. Its inhabitants number about one thousand, there being four distinct and exchi- sive classes, the Novitii, the Loquacii, the Diligentes, and the Literati. The form of govern- ment is oligarchical, with three rulers at its head, Beckus, Prexi, and Brackenridgus. These three rulers form what is called a triumvirate, and have equal powers of banishment and pros- cription over their subjects. They are assisted by a body of men called the Faculti, who are chosen by the triumvirs, and whose chief duty is to impose an exorbitant tax of learning upon the people. For many years the inhabitants were bowed under the heavy burden of the tax. It re- quired all their available resources to satisfy the merciless demands if the Faculti and accord- ingly the prosperity of the country began to decline, and even the hig.iest castes of society were reduced to practical slavery. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happii,ess no longer reigned in the state, but the overburdened people toiled on under the impositioi.s of the rulers, some fall- ing under the burden, and others being compelled to flee thf kingdom. With all this injustice there was an ever increasing spirit of rebellion and dissatisfaction, the danger of which was unforeseen by the triumvirs and the Faculti. Neither the Novitii, the Loquacii nor the Dili- gentes had the courage to stir up an open revolt against their tyrannical rulers, but the germ of instruction, once lodged in the class of the Literati, spread like wild-fire through their ranks, and before the triumvirs could be warned of the danger a rebellion was imder way that meant inevitable ruin to the tyranny of the government. Hitherto the government had been able to dispatch with little trouble any petty rebellion that might have occurred, and they entered the war w-th all the confidence of assured victory. But never before had they encountered the Literati, which, though few in number, were pow- erful and of a higher state of civilization and culture than any other class in the state. One great battle after another was fought and won by the Literati, ' i ' he I ' aculti failed in every at- tempt made, in spite of the fact that they were armed with the most formidable weapons known to man, examinatus, Cjuisisus and theses, the latter being the most deadly war engine of modern invention. But all the combined advantages of such equipment could not overcome the superior craftiness and sagacity of the Literati, and at last on the Ides of Junius, the tyrants were 33 driven to a final stand, and tlie Faculti gave a eves of the kin«loni are The battle raged six bloody days and sleepless nights. The triumvirs desperate fight. As one onslaught after another was repelled bv the Literati, they rallied their forces, and made a fresh attack. But their strength was gradually decreasing and their ammunition was exhausted. On the Seventh day the proud tyrants, so long the absolute rulers of the state, were compelled to treat with their subjects. Never before in the annals of the state had the op- ])ressed people dared to question their authority, but now the Literati would be satisfied with nothing less than complete surrender. The Faculti were compelled to remove the tax, and grant the Literati equal rights and privileges with themselves. They were also compelled to raise the Diligentes to the class formerly occupied bv the emancipated Literati. In addition, as token of their complete victory, it was decreed that the Literati should be granted a three days triumph, at which time they should don the toga seniori which wa s the special mark of their new rights, and in a triumphal procession march to the forum, where the au riumvirs should sign and deliver to them " papers of .nd privileges " and by way of impressing them with new dignitA ' and resjionsibility proclaim to them — " The )U.

Blank verse? that voiced Othello ' s riven faith, And uttered forth the mad, tempestuous soul Of Lear? Shall any small, presumptuous youth For one brief moment try to occupy The kingly seat of Avon ' s Bard? I must In answer beg such pardon as is due The modesty of him whose sole excuse For such unseemly usurpation is The greatness of his theme — the Junior Class. So there ' s your compliment, a sickly one. And forced — if truth be told. But now, I think. Since Juniors are so far advanced beyond The puny, whimpering brags of Freshman days, And since we scorn the sophomoric rants Of those who vainlv boast, and think they ' re it, Ves now, I think we ' d better turn our view From all the gleaming conquests of the past To what ' s before us. Briefly to sum up. The matter is as follows (food for thought) : For three long years we ' ve gorged our heads with lore. And now, with brains by learning all debauched. And minds inebriated, we are told That we must face the world. O ■ile, " ile world ! That asks upon your entrance, " Have you learned The things they teach at school? ' ' The answer " Xo, " forthwith the scornful, " Greenhorn! " i ' ou won ' t do. " Again, if some enlightened youth say " Yes, " And, trembling, add thereto with good intent The fact of college training, good reports, And several other gifts, at once is heard " Unfit! Not practical. The thing we want Is men who do things " — So thus it goes; And soon, in all our helpless impotence. We ' II let ourselves be borne upf)n the world. Once there, we ' 11 take the kicks, or charities Of powerful, worldly men as they see fit. Complaining never. Hold! O World, take heart. One year of respite shall be granted you ; We ' ll all -ome back next year and graduate. — Sivniis irench. 38 Jonlor Glass Poem.

At first His great Stunt was Stepping on his own Feel whenever a Co-ed Crossed his Horizon; But 1) ' Dint of Arduous Efforts, he learned to Control himself Better. His first Appearance before the Public was the Freshman Re ception. Here the Upper Classman of Oily Ways Talked Taffy to him: for the Upper Classman liked to Trip on Tottering Toe. The Freshman thought He was It with Spangles all Over him, and so he was — " With the Reverse English. " The next Startling Episode in his Eventful Career was when he Had a Conference with the Dean — a Peculiar Monster whose Chief Delight is to Devour Freshmen. He had Cut Classes like a Buzz Saw, and the Dean was Irate. A Compromise was Effected ; and the Freshman Reformed. About this time he also gave up his Theory that it was Bad for the fUalth to Study Between Meals. Then, after Exams., came the I ' " inal Ball. He Staid (her anil Cast his Die in a Dress vSuit. After Checking his Hat with an Im )osing Ethiopate, he Journeyed to the Ice-Cooler and then Reclaim- ed his Lid from Blackness. Home was his next Stop. ' - A- :{: : ■ ' ■r :i: After three Months Stopover with his Hinnl)le Home folks, llu- Prodigy Sprinted once more for . iistin to vn al oiiei- Forgetting His Marvelous Exploits of Freshman days with whieli lie had iieen Regaling his Parents during the Hot Ho ' ida . ( )n the Way Down this time, he did not buy a Box of Figs from llie " Butch " — which shows of his Progress toward Civilization ; but he ,S])eiU I ' our Bits on John Henry ' s Version f)f " Its Up to You " — lluis I{ i(leneing his Improved Literary Tastes. When he reached Austin, he never paid for Cabbage to the .Salge Hotel. He Rode in a Car out to the Learning Mills; and .Ma tricnlated without FVar (Not without Difticulty, mind nu, for iioiu- ever will be Able to do Tliat ). ' i ' lun for ' i ' liree Weeks lie Worked eight hours a day in the Corridors, watching ()tliers Struggle for their iMrst Time. Then he Thought of the Dean and started in to Studw And he ' s slill st ncK int; - w luii ever he thinks of the Dean. 44 v_yncf. at the .Same Time, a Freshman of AiKither Kind, called a Co-ed, Claspini; a He- ribboned Diploma burst upon ' Varsity where she continued to Bust for some time. I ' nder the Chaperonage of Mrs. Kirby she ventured from the Fem. Haven, Some ' here in the West, to Classes and did Stunts in he V. W. C. A. She Blushed at the Derbicd Dandies and lischewed the Library. Her Cardiac Organ palpitated when She saw Girls with " Oodles of Sense " , and it Pained her Nose to Smell Cigarettes. She had a Perverted Notion that Calics Came to ' ' arsity to Work, and several Strange ideas. ' hen She went to the Freshman Reception She Wore her Graduating Togs and Blushed some More. This Funded her Social Career but vShe Dug and A ' ent Home witl a Record. When She re-appeared in ' X ' arsity Circles in the I- ' all, She dropped Greek and Registered for Ped. I and a Corridor Course. vShe decided that all Masculines weren ' t Monsters as she had Hitherto Supposed. Then She got a Flossy and learned to Consume Huyler ' -. She Cut Classes and got to be the Limit on Bluffing. When She had time to Waste, she Studied, oth- erwise she Climbed up Mt. Bonncll or " Constituted " on the Peripatos. After Acquiring a one- sided Pompadour, she got Swell and Learned the ' Varsity Swagger. She took In all the Shows She Got Bids to and Driving was her Specialty. After doing the Society Act generallv she Decided to Make Some Courses, being a Wise Fool. She will return Next ' ear Much Wise i and we have Hopes. 4.5 Tk Servant G r[ 47 FUKSiniAN C LASS.

' HERE HAVE BEEN ' Freshman classes and Freshman classes; but don ' t try to com- pare any of them with the Freshman class of 190, -4. Now this isn ' t bragging. It doesn ' t mean that our class was a model of perfection. It means that our class stands alone: that it is the only Freshman class that ever existed that wasn ' t like every other Freshman class that had existed. We have not followed the beaten paths, and we don ' t want any other class to follow us. Last September, perhaps you were inclintd to dub th.; r ' reshmen as rotten. But they were far from rotten : in fact, they were alive and green. And when they met at their re- ception all the greenness had been carefully rubbed off. (Take equal parts of spunk and upper classmen). But all other Fresh- men were .green, and all other Freshman classes had recep- tions; and these subjects ha e been carefully exhausted by former historians. Vou could see right ai first that the Freshmen of 1903 were not like the others. When you asked one of them to buv elevator tickets he didn ' t grin and hunt for a dime; and when you said " They ' re after you " he didn ' t oblige you by saving " Who? " ; ' Then, too, these Freshmen didn ' t try to come up to the highest standard. They were already there. Thev have been on the pinnacle of fame ever since they trotted on to the Registrar clutching their bolts of high school red tape. Such are the Freshmen as they will go down into historv; and they will not be forgotten. But if you think you can ' t re- nieml)er them, forget that they numbered 225; forget that they won honors in the class-room and on the gridiron ; forget that they were leaders every- where; but remember always that the Freshmen of 190.V4 are tlunnly Freshmen tliat ever existed that departed from the path of their predecessors. 50 FEESHMAX CLASS EOLL.

' XGIXEERING is now admitted to be one of the greatest and most important profes- sions, and as a result this session was begun with the largest unmber of civil, electrical and mining engineering students in the history of the department. In fact the engin eering department has shown the largest percentage of increase in attendance of all the departments of the university. The school of electrical engineermg, which existed for so long a time onlv in the minds of the university officials, is now a reality, and the coniparati ely large number of students tak- ing this course shows clearly that a long felt want has been satisfied. If we may judge bv the large number of students already in this school, in spite of the fact that no mention of the school was made in the last year ' s catalogue, it will not be a long time before it becomes equal in size to any school in the department. Dr. Arthur Curtis Scott, Ph. D. University of Wisconsin, has been appointed Professor of Electrical Engineering, and is already hard at work developing his school. We believe that under his able direction it will expand greatly and rapidly and became the finest electrical school in tht vSouth. A group of twenty-one courses leading to the degree of Ivlectrical Engineer has been ar- ranged by Dr. Scott which compares favorably with the courses of the best uni -ersities of the North and East. The large increase in the number of students in the department made it necessarv to pro vide more drawing room; consequently the large room formerly used as the girl ' s gvmnasium has been converted into a drawing room and is now daily filled with aspiring freshmen, who excite the admiration (?) of the fair co-eds who, prompted by curiosity, peek in occasionally. The faculty of the department has been increased by the appointment of a tutor in draw- ing, and two additional student assistants, made necessary by the greater number of men taking drawing and field-work. The group of courses leading to the degree of Civil I{ngineer has been increased from twenty to twenty-one. Engineers will now have to take two courses in English, and an elec- tive from the following group; Political Economy, History, Electrical Engineering, Modern Language or Thesis work. A group of studies has also been arranged for students who wish to enter the field of .Sanitary engineering. This is, in the main, of features similar to the regu- lar civil engineering course and leads to the same degree. The course in mining engineering has also been rearranged and strengthened by the addition of another course. From this it can be seen that the standard of work in the wluik- deiiartiiunl has lieeii raised. 56 A handsome new fire-proof building of pressed brick, four stories in height, is now in the jsrocess of erection on the campus for the accommodation of this department. It will have cost, when completed, seventy-five thousand dollars. It will be provided with well equipped electri- cal, and hydraulic, and mining laboratories, as well as laboratories for testing the strength of cements, steel, wood and other materials of engineering. The drawing rooms will occupy the whole of the third floor, will be provided with modern desks, and will undoubtedlv prove to be light, airy and comfortable. There will also be provided in connection with the drawing rooms, photographic dark room and a convenient blue printing room. The students appreciate the improvements that are being made for their convenience and comfort. Unofficially it is announced that a Studio is to be fitted up in which a course in Land- scape, for the benefit of the Lawyers and Academs, will be administered. Heretofore the drawing rooms have been used as impromptu studios, but now that the aspirants for this course are so numerous, and as they are expected to increase ten-fold upon completion of the new building, the addition of a special rooiu will be a great benefit. Now that we have room to expand, it only a question of tiiue until our Supremacy is complete. Already they have cut us out from athletics as a department because of their fear of us, but now We see, looming up b ' g, the time when our individual classes will assert them- selves and carry off all honors, in spite of combinations against them. As two courses in En- p-l ' sh will henceforth be required, we expect soon to make our mark in literary lines. Six little Hickeys walking on the drive; Sammy saw his lady love, then there were Five. Five little Hickeys at the drawing room door; Hock got landscaped, then there were Four. Four little Hickeys out on a spree; Sunny Jim piked, then there were Three. Tliree little Hickeys with nothing to do; Wampus got a job, then there were Two. Two little Hickeys with nothing done; Jinks busted, then there was One.

Giesen busts, Edw ards grunts, And Connor ' s not prepared — Burney stunts, Powell bunts, And Finch ' s knowledge aired. Now Menden hauls his colors out But quickly flickers up the spout, His glasses all askew. The class is wishing it were dead, Each member sneaks away, The Hatchette now is good and red, Bantel ' s the band to play. Dead Loaded to T. U. T.

Til ' : SI ' XIOR KXCIXEERLN ' G CLASS of ' 04 is remarkable in that it is neither the the hni,ast nor the sniahest, neither the best nor the worst. Init in that it contains an exceedingly varied individuality in its membership. AA ' hile onlx ' five in nimiber, it includes the indifferent, the modest, the theoretical, the practical, and the phlegmatical ; in short, engineers of every kind, shape and size. Our brilliant John Perry Starnes is famous for his great achievements on exams, having on manv occasions covered himself with glory, while all those aroimd wondered how he did it. His lasting fame rests, however, on another achievement. This noble son of a worthy ancestor, after a long series of experiments, lasting through a period of four years, announced the discovery of the following law: " If you have an exam, go to the show the night before; if vou haven ' t, go anyway. " It is with unfeigned ditlidence that the writer comes to sjx-ak of Walter Owen Washing- ton, " Honest George, the chaplain of the class. " He ' s as ([uaint and timid as a ni.aid, ' tis true, The daintiest little fellow the writer ever knew. Three moment formulas and integrations — Don ' t mention tlieni on Hxaniinations. The most noteworthy event of his life has just Ijeen consumnialed in his first kne experience. AH are hopeful as to the outcome. Next comes our pretty, black-haired hero, William Franklin Martin, more often referred to as the " Mathematical Crank, " or " The Old Man ' s Pet. " He tried to take all the courses in the University, but utterly failed, which was a severe shock to his colossal pride, and broke the " Old Man ' s " heart. If he would take the advice of his contemporaries, and drop to the plane of the practical world, he might be hailed as " The Man from Up There. " That deep thinker and philosopher, George Grovcr Wickline is iuii ersall ' known h his characteristic smile, which extends from (y)ear to (y)ear. .Serene, sober and methodical, he has the highest standing in his class (measured in inches). He is well balanced — until the Prof, plies questions too freely, when he sometimes takes a mental somersault, to bob up serene- ly later on. He is his father ' s pride, and hopes some day to become a man. The last increment to our class is Charles Edward Leonard, whose claim for fame rests on being Perpetual Sergeant-at-Arms of the " Ivngincer ' s Chib. " He started on before us, l)ut his thirst for worldly knowledge and " Bud " led him as)ra . Now he has fully repented and re- turned to the fold. lUit with his characteristic nerve and grit, he expects to graduate. See Justice of the Peace for further i)articulars. .Signed W. L. M. S. W.

YOUNG. 86 Senior Law History. m nn RECORDS OF THE L ' NIVERSITV do not show that tht- Law Class of 1904 is 1 in any way extraordinary. It may be that oiir introduction to " the averaged man " at an early stage of our studies made us satisfied with mediocrity ; it is a truism that a man is influenced by the company he keeps. It should not give nlTense to sav that we are an average class in the University, but a comparison of the ab(i e estimate with class histon ' cs in this and former numbers of the " Cactus " will not be in our favor. Besides what the official records show, this average aggregation has done various and sundry things. They have had their own amusements and their own methods of work. The first thing in the morning they would get up, that is, those who had not been up al ' night studying. Then they would perhaps eat breakfast. At any rate, by half -past nine tlnre was always a good bunch of them promenading the corridor of the Law Department, or in the Senior Law room. From this time until ten thirty might well be called the Senior Law ' s hour. Then it was that the air was redolent with tobacco. Imagine if vou can how much went up in smoke about that class room that year. Forget if you can the amount of tobacco that you bummed. We smoked cigarettes, we smoked pipes of all sorts, without regard to size color or previous condition of sen,itude, we smoked cigars. On occasions we had songs. On mornings when exem]itions were to be posted we had more songs. " Judge, I care not for ninety, eighty seven or nine, I would make an exemption, only jsass o ' er the line. In the book of thv passes, on the page white and fair. Tell me, Yancy, mv teacher, is my name written there? " Lectures and quizzes occupied the time from ten-thirlv ' till one o ' clock. I ' Voni time to time during this period manv little incidents occurred and impressions were made which, though trivial in themselves and aliiiost impossible to narrate, might very properly be given a place in an inside history of the class. Would that the writer had the power in a few words to strike off the individualit - of each niemher of the class — the impetuosity of Adams, the light and airy tread of SwolTord as he came into class, the " attitude " of Thrasher, who nobody doubted had the courage of his convictions, the earnestness of Dalmey, the seriousness of Romberg, the ingenuit - of Budley Fisher on an oral quiz, the incisiveness of Moffett, Phelps and Bromberg, the drollness of Horace Trippett, the guilelessness of Dickerson. the modesty of Ross, the forcefulness of ( )liver, and so on down the roll. Deserving of record also is the race of McGinnis, Britt and Locke for high grades, and the dash of McLean for the door. But all this would take a far more skillful jien than that wielded 1) - the writer. The Icctinvs gave opportunitv for Uk ' display of individual ajHiliuks lor certain lints of work, and the quizzes showed that nianv members of the class had their own fixed and delinite notions, and did not slavishly accept the views of the text writers. In Equity, Johnson and Adams were especially interested in trusts and the administration of trust funds. In Constitutional Law , Hloor and Hancock settled the question of the right of secession in a manner satisfactory to themselves, but independent of anything found in Mr. Black ' s book; and Henderson, taking as a platform what Patrick Henry said about liberty, with an admirable independence of view, asserted the uncjualified right of revolution. In Advanced Pleading, the whole class showed a special apti- tude for cutting. At one o ' clock each dav the hyprotic spell was broken and Senior Law had from then until bed time for hard study. .Sometimes he would sit behind his best girl in a loge; the next time in sweater and cap, chinning the railing of University box he might look dow-n with sym- pathy on his deskmate who had been soaked for six dollars to see the Silver Slipper or the Wizard of Oz. But this reminds us that somebody has said that the world is a stage and ev en we are actors. After Commencement we will play in a larger theatre. .Some of us will be assigned the part we ourselves have chosen, that of lawyers; some of us will be given other parts, perhaps that of Uncle Josh from the forks of the creek, or that of the dry goods clerk, or that of the so ' dier of fortune — we hope that to none will fall the part of the villain. But to whatever roles we are assigned, let us remember that we all belong to the same company, that a word of encouragement may make our next performance better, and that if the " hired boy " plays his pari well he may do much good and be as equally entitled to praise as the star of the whole caste.

He was a farmer ' s son, and lived on the right hand side of the road that runs from Brenham to Chapelhill. In the spring and summer of 1903 the niggers ate up his watermelons and the boll-weevils chewed off his cotton, so he said to his father, one day: " Father, do vou see how this fore-lock of mine stands up off my head? That means that I ' m a lawyer, a liorn one, and I won ' t have to train my hair, it ' s law-hair already. " So the folks and kin-folks had a meeting in the back parlor, with all the shades down, and after a four hours ' talk, they decided to send Ordy to the University of Texas. His gray- haired mother went up into the barn loft and got the old valise off the nail, and wept some of the dust off it as she was bringing it dow-n the ladder, and put some clean socks in it, and shirts and writing-paper ' and things, and a Bible, and clicked it together, and opened it again and put in a jar of Ordy ' s favorite peach preserves, and slipped in two letters of introduction, one to the preacher at Austin, and one to Judge Townes, saying to the Judge that " her boy was a good Christian boy, and fond of hard work and good things to eat, and wouldn ' t the Judge please invite her bov up to his house now and then on Sundays, because the boy ' s uncle knew the Judge in early days? " ( )rdv wein ' -out and caught the old mare, and patted her neck, and told her he hated to leave the old place , and led her around to the buggy house by the mane, talking to her all the time about the good old days they had passed together, and asked her if she remembered how- nice and cool the spring .water used to taste when they came in from plowing. A great sympa- thetic tear glistened upon his manly, sun-browned cheek. He opened the buggy-house door, and taking the collar off the rack, came slowly back to where the mare stood, with her head bowed low, as if too felt the parting. Ordy let his arm linger upon her strong, warm neck after he had buckled the collar; then he leaned down and lifted up lier foot to see if there wa a stone in it, and she bit off his fore-lock. He didn ' t come to the U. of T. His law-hair was gone, so lie kicked the mare in the ribs, broke his toe, and drowned himself in the rain-barrel.

Ill.STORV, Farming is the oldest, most honorable, and most e ' .sential vocation in the world. As an organization, the Rusty Cusses eould trace an unbroken descent from Adam and Eve: but they make no such claim. Indeed it is their proud boast that they are newly organized ; their plantation is all fresh land; their appliances and their farming utensils of the latest invention. Even the plow-handles of old Reck are of the newest design. .■Vs a departure from the customs of other organizations, the Rusty Cusses invited the Gooroos and P. E. C. ' s to be represented in the picture shown herewith. Those great and honorable orders accepted the invitation, and sent the leading member of their respective brotherhoids. The Rusty Cusses propose to ignore the effete old-line fr.ilernities, and be a moving jxiwer in the I ' niversit ' of Texas. Photo by Jordan. R I STIC I. S. S. S. SORORITY.

The SIDNEY LANIER SOCIETY ends its fourth year ' s work with the session of 1903- X. 1904- The purpose of the society is two-fold — the establishment of a Students ' Loan F ' und, and the promotion of a helpful and pleasant intercourse among its members — and, although comparatively a young organization, its growth along both lines has been as rapid as its most enthusiastic supporters could have desired. The chief object of the society is the establishment of a fund which will in time, it is hoped, become sufficient to pay some girl ' s expenses at the University for a whole year. At present it is only enough to lend a helping hand. This session, especial interest has been manifested in this phase of the work. This is shown by the fact that the members have voted to reserve the dues of the society exclusi ely for the loan fund, and to meet all expenses by special assessment. By this means the fund has been materially increased, and the whole amount has been in use throughout the year. The society was named for our great Southern writer, Sidney Lanier, and consec(uently his life and works have been the chief subject of study. The first year was devoted exclusively to Sidney Lanier ' s poetry, the second and third to Southern Literature in general, dwelling especially upon Lanier, w hile the present session has been devoted to a study of his prose. The books used for this year ' s programs are: Music and Poctiy: The Development oj the En- i lish Novel; and Science oj English Veisc. These were read b - the whole societN ' , and finished the main topics oi discussio n, while supplementary numbers bearing directly upon the day ' s lesson wxM ' e taken from other sources, and added interest to the central theme. The work has been both pleasant and profitable, and every member feels fully repaid for her work. In this connectif)n the increase of membership ma - also be mentioned. Although many of last year ' s members were absent at this year ' s roll call, the ranks lia e been filled with new and earnest workers, and more enthusiasm is shown llian at anyother jxriod of its liistor -. — M.

F. 152 The FcusK. m LITTLE over twenty years ago a certain child was born ; the University of Texas was its father and necessity was its mother. This child was christened the Rusk _ Literary Society of the University of Texas — thus named for that eminent Texan who was an intellectual genius, an orator, and a benefactor of his country. In ' his younger days this child was as strong and healthy as such children usually are, but at first, of course, manv of his members were untrained and undeveloped, and his constitu- tion was weak and unsatisfactory. These defects, however, were soon overcome, in the main, by severe discipline. And so for many years the Rusk and Athenaeum have worked together faithfully and earnestly to advance the interests of their father, and, though many times they have been of immeasurable benefit to him, yet it is feared that he does not always see and appreciate Things do not always go smoothly between this brother and sister. Differences arise, and they quarrel — and many times they have a real " parliamentary fight. " The Rusk is naturally the stronger and the more energetic of the two — this, ot course, being due to a difference in the constitutions and general formation of the two children. Be cause of his new and improved constitution and the push and energy of his members. The Rush never leaves his work to attend " shows, " while his sister is very often .guilty ot this— no fault of her own, of course, but due to her constitution. The Rusk has done many other things during the past two years which are certainly worthy of note. One thing of very especial moment is his cash prizes. Last year he became so interested in his members that he was bold enough to create a fifty-dollar annual cash prize in oratory. His members furnished half of the money, and one of the family servants (our noble and very worthy president, W ' m. L. Prather) very kindly gave the vest. At the present time, The Rusk is raising mone - to olTir his members two annual cash prizes in oratory, and in declamation. Of the manv honors for which this brother und sister contend each year. The Rusk cer- tainly does receive his share, which of course is a pretty large one. Last year there were three cash prizes offered. The Rusk cajitured two of these: there were six first honors, three of these went to the brother, there were four second ])laccs. all of which he cajjtured. — Historian. 153 ORA TOHTC AL ASSOC TATIOX.

CHE FOURTH YEAR of the life of the Engineer ' s Club of the University of Texas opened with a shout and a hurrah. All of the old members came enthusiastically to the front, anxious to say something, or to draw something. And in their wake came a host of Freshmen, young, vigorous, and energetic, all seeking to gain distinction in some way, but not knowing exactlv how. In the first meeting after the opening of the University, some excitement was caused over the election of officers for the succeeding term. In the day preceding the night of meet- ing, the Freshmen, in mass meeting assembled, had graciously decided to allow the older mem- bers the offices of President and Sergeant-at-Arms, keeping the remainder for themselves, and had come up in force to carry out this plan. ' Twas the same sad story of misguided vouth, for ihey had reckoned without their host. After much oratory and more allotting, the results were read out, and the Freshmen were found to ha e one offiice — president? No — Sergeant- at-Arms. The progranunes rendered by the Club during this scholastic year have been of an ex- ceedingly interesting and instructive kind. They have been based principallv upon the person- al experience in the field of various members, and consequently have had all the vigor, clear- ness, and thoroi:ghness that is to be gained from a personal knowledge of the subject under discussion. All such lectures have been accompanied by photographs or drawings illustrative of the details of the subject. In several instances members of the engineering branch of the faculty and even influential engineers outside of the University have given instructive talks upon subjects of interest to all engineers, illustrating their subjects in some instances witli lantern slide pictures, and with drawings. Withal, the Club for this year has been, in the language of the poet, a " howling success, " and if it continues in the future as it is at present, it will, before many years, be numbered among the leading scientific societies of Texas. 157 i.SS OFFICERS Pr e sident ice Presicfent Treasurer Cor re 5 pond int Sec Recording Sec iV F.

J» RACKEXRIDGE HALL is an exceptionally beautiful and connnodious brick dormitory for men. ' Situated on the campus, near the Main Uni- versity, it has all the natural advantages one could desire. It is lighted by electricity, heated with steam, and has double closets and bath rooms on each floor. It is four stairs high, with the basement, and has an assembly hall on top. There are seventy-seven rooms, accommoda- ting an aggregate of one hundred and twenty-five students. And besides those rooming within it there are on an average of at least seventy-five others who take their meals there. The purpose of the Hall is to give good accomodations for little money. Board is ten dollars a month, and the average room rent is about three. Some dozen or more students are given an opportunity to make their board by waiting on the tables, and a few others pay a part of their expenses by doing chores. That it is a success is best seen from the fact that throughout the year it has been filled to its capacity. Often there have been as many as thirty-five applicants for each vacancy; and in some of the single rooms two students are domiciled, so anxious are they to share the gen- eral advantages. In its government the Hall may well be termed a democracy of boys. It is controlled and managed by a council of students, who are elected annually by the whole number of oc- cupants. Nor are we too much governed. Only those rules are enforced which tend to the best interests of all. Liberty is here considered to be only so much freedom of action as does not interfere with the equal rights of others. Thus formal table etiquette is demanded, and any one who plays any game of chance, brings any spirituous liquors therein, or who persists in being boisterous does so at the hazard of expulsion. But of all, possibly the social feature of the hall is to be the most desired. Here some twf) hundred students, gathered from all over the state, and out of it, learn to know cine another intimately each year. Indestructible ties of friendship are formed, and those tradi- tions laid, which in after years can but be golden grains of memorx ' . Long live the Hall! —A. M.

The Athletic The Cactus may seem to you a cheap affair, hut always bear in uiind that in Association and a real knowledge-plant, everything must be sacrified to ATHLETICS. It Ihe tactus seems hard that the Cactus Board had to give up its pet notion of making artistic innovations; but, in a Brawnocracy, we must learn that " aesthetic " ideas are criminal. For years and vears the Cactus has been bled for anaemic ATHLETICS. What boots it whether your poem is printed on Saxon bond or on wrapping paper that needs deodorizing? Its wording will doubtless be the same. It would be basely extravagant to have a few colored posters in these pages, when there is a deficit to be paid on year before last ' s foot ball trip. Much better would it be to bind The Cactus in a paper sack than have ATHLETICS ' status precarious. Don ' t think that it seems illogical to have our most " aes thetic " periodical pay homage and tribute to our most barbaric enterprises. It ' s all right. Professors have said so; and Professors can do no wrong. Ipst dixciuut. Besides, the ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION is generous. It has thought, even seriously, of bestowing on each member of our foot ball team the boon of a bronze foot ball about the size of a stunted liver pill. This alone would consume I2.75 of the ASSOCIATION ' S revenue — a mighty return to our team for our library deposits, the team ' s work for many a day, our subscriptions to numerous lists, our dollar and a quarter for the " big " game — and our vivi- sected cactus. Just to think, too, that this suggested expenditure of $2.75 was voluntary. The ASSOCIATION did not rtTf to give a cent ; but still it was willing to turn loose two hundred and seventy-five one cent stajuiss, that " our bnvs " might look like banner carriers at an Hy- pothecators ' Congress. To be sure, if we had had in the past vears the monev that ATHLETICS had to have, our printers could have been paid for better type and paper. But think of the alternative I ATHLETICS would have been with empty maw! Some sweet day, our foot ball team will be able to go to Alaska and meet the Kickapoo Indians in their wigwams. Some sweet day, " our boys " will run over to London for a game of cricket. To be sure, you ' ll then have difficulty in distinguishing The Cactus from the Y. M. C. A. Handbook; but ATHLETICS will be flourishing. We «•! be classic, and let the ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION be the wolf that gnaws ib ■■•ery victuals out of the cactus. ATTATAI ! (being Greek for Dash it I) — .

HK NINETEENTH OF JANUARY was near at hand. This day. sacred to all Southerners, was appointed bv Fate, in the shape of the I ' aculty, to be the scene of the great conllict which would end the struggle " when Greek meets Greek. " and when to Greeks would come their respective shares of I ' reshmen. In other words, the nineteenth had been chosen for " Pledge-day " when rushing season would end, and peace once more settle upon old ' Varsity. Only a week more remained, and Greek letter nun were in a state border- ing on mental exhaustion. The very atmosphere was rife with ex- citement, and the r,)tunda, always attractive, was rendered doubly so by the animated scene in the corridor below. Here and there were groups of fraternity-men, and — iiiisfitibilc dictu girls, with a Freshman or two in low, all exerting themselves to appear to the best advantage. Two men were leaning over the railing watching the rapidly changing panorama down stairs They were Alpha Phi Sigma ' s, one of the strongest fraternities in ' V arsity — one of lluni I ' liilii) vStevens, the athlete, the oilier Marr. a studious looking man. The latter turned from the scene which he was contemlilaling, with an anuised smile. " 1 shall be lather glad when it ' s all o er. I ' liil, tlmugli it ' s an inten-sting psvcholou ical study. I ' urliu ' rmore, 1 shall be (juite satisfied if we land W ' illougiiln ' and two or three others like him. " " Ves, ; . Hut tiiat l-reshman Willouglib ' s a puzzU ' .

Conlidrutiallv, 1 tliink slu ' will iiave a lot to do with his choice in the fral line. The chap ' s lialf in loxe with her. " 195 Stevens nodded, and Marr continued : " And the question is, will she turn him Alpha vSig.-ward or will she ])ull for the Delias. You know they ' re the people most of us are nally afraid of in this case, and the fellows were discussing Ihcni in last frat mee ' ing, which you cut, incidentally — she ' s a friend of ours — but what do you think? " " She has never told me, but I ' m sure of one thing — Frances Walden will do the square thin bv us, and the Deltas, too. You needn ' t smile, my boy, even if I do admire her more than anv other girl in college. Why — there she is now with a Delta on one side and a Gamma Theta Rho on the other and I ' ll bet Willoughby isn ' t far off. Aha! Sherlock Holmes, No. 2! He appeareth ! " Both men leaned over the railing and watched the little tableau below. The girl under lire had stopped, and a handsome chap with an air confident of a welcome, approached the trio. The girl smiled and turned to her two companions. " You will excuse me, I ' m sure. I promised to read Mr. W ' illoughhy ' s I ' rench to him this hour, as he is so much rushed in the evenings that he doesn ' t have lime for books. Come to the Library, I ' reshman. and let ' s go to work. " ' Stevens came down the stairs three steps at a lime and overtook the two at the Liljrary door. " Beg pardon, I ' rances, but when you finish with illoughb - nia ' I have him? I want to lake him away from the surging crowd to Weilbacher ' s I " " I have a class after next gong, so you may, " laughed Miss Walden, " but be sure it ' s W ' t-ilbaclier ' s and not Pat ' s. " " 1 proinise, and thank you, " answered Stevens. Frances looked after him a moment, as he swung awav with the most approved ' Varsity foot-ball stride. " He ' s mighlv fine, I ' reshman I " she exclaimed. Then, irrelevantly, " I am .w tired of fratsl " luigene Willoughbv had come to the I ' niversity the October before, and had become one of the most rushed Freshmen in college. He was a likable chap, frank, fairly studious, and 196 whL-n he uiade first luain in his I ' reshnian vear his positon in ' ' arsity was forever assured. The strongest fraternities at " Texas " had immediately taken him up; the Gamma Theta Rhos and Deltas had gone in determinedly after him, and even the Alpha Phi Sigmas, whose policy tended toward non-rushing, had decided that he was eminently " Alpha Sig Jlaterial " and had invited him to their chapterhouse several times. And then Frances Walden appeared on the horizon of his future fraternity life. He was eminently a " man ' s man, " and rather looked down on the fellows who " went in for girls, " but her father and his had been college chums years before, and he, incidentally chancing to discover that, in spite of the fact that she was attractive and popular, she was sensible and " could talk without forever giggling, " acquired a habit of dropping in at her boarding place and discussing foot -ball and his work with her. Then there came to be strolls, and even a drive or a theatre now and then, but to a dance Willoughby couldn ' t be dragged, the most informal Saturday night German being an affair to be avoided, in his eyes. So it happened that a man or tw ' o in ' Varsity particularly interested in Miss Walden came to consider " that Freshman Willoughby " a nuisance ; and, what is more to the paint Jliss Walden came to be considered by Greekdcm an important factor in the case of Willoughby. But liss Walden was inscrutable in her own fraternity policy, and a certain Alpha Sig, a Delta and a Gamma Tliet, having been so foolish as to wish, and to express a wish, to see a fraternity pin on her shirt waist, were firmly but kindly squelched. When a Delta happened along while she and Willoughby were doing the Peripatos. she seemed quite as pleased as when a Gamma Theta joined a conversation in the Library or an Alpha Sig inter- rupted a tete-a-tete on the third floor stairs alter lab. Of course even the smallest rushing- parties, given partly for the benefit rf Wilk.ughby, were not complete without Frances, and often salads and ices found their way to her from smokers— her " ccnciliation offerings. " she called them; but she was sensibk and she also pos- sessed a sense of humor, so she enjoyed the " ofTerings " and laughed with her room mate, Mil- dred Lane, who wore an Alpha Sig pm. and, being impolitic, had to share Frances " part of the " Freshtnan rush. " Sometimes a tired cut rusher would become incensed and declare that ■Miss Walden affected that Freshman just to keep us po r mortals upset. " Hut certain frat 197 brothers, being themselves worshippers at l}ie shrine, would -ehemently insist tluit slie was " deucedly honestly fond of the chap and he. himsell. didn ' t know what she thought about frats, " which may have been a cleverly correct supposition. As the davs went on the excitement increased, and on the eighteenth, the day before " Pledge Dav. " was at fever-heat. The corridors, the stairs, the peripatos — every available place in the vicinity was occupied, each fraternity dt)ing its best to impress on prospectives the infinite superioritv of " our fellows. " Group after group had been forcibly ejected from the library by its relentless guardian, and even the Dean had been compelled to come forth Irom his Sacred Precincts and request that the noise in the corridor be not quite so great. As to classes — aftei the nine o ' clock hour Professors learned by sad experience to skim hurriedly over the names of frat men and Freshmen. Willoughby, after cutting two classes, declared that he must go to Histt)ry at eleven, and by clever dodging and skirmishing, he succeeded in arriving at the door of room 44. Here, however, Lewis, a Delta, swooped down and was re- lentless, reiiiarking in a firm voice: " Miss Walden wants you in the Ivibrary, immediately, so come along, Frcshv. " Now, Lewis happened to be the particular Delta interested in Miss Walden, so Willoiighbv laughed and permitted himself to be dragged through the crowd by his valiant captor. Mien thev were safely inside the Library door, so that Willoughby couldn ' t bolt without a scene, Lewis calmly announced : " Miss Walden isn ' t in here at all. I had to use some expedient to finish telling you those things about Delta. " " I suspected as niucii. " Willoughby interrupted. " Only Miss Walden m- in the Librarv. in the corner vonder, so (iii revoir, old man; I ' d rather hear no more frat talk till one to-morrow! " T ewis stared after the Freshman with open mouth. " Thunder! " he murmured: then he made a dash for the corner wliere Willou,L;hb ' had ensconced himself beside Frances. " I say, Miss Walden, Willoughby ' s just gi en me the slip, but I an magnanimous — let ' s , go down and have so ne Iron Brew. " 198 " Thank you, yes. Will you come, Eugene? ' " Eugene answered her half-smile with a wink — behind Lewis ' hack — and " Ix-lieved he had to study. " As Lewis and Frances went down the steps at the side of the Lilirary, one of the men who weie smoking there rose. It was Stevens. " Pardon me, " he faced Frances. " But I want to go to Mt. Bonnell in the morning — feel impelled by some force to return to Xature. Miss Lane and Eugene have promised to re- turn with me — so as to avoid unpleasant complication " back here in civilization. Will you? " Frances was unwontedly flushed. " I should enjoy it immensely, and I don ' t mind cutting a class or two. Only — only, I ' ve been to my last rushing partv. " The men on the steps laughed, and Stevens replied: " I promise not to talk frat to Eugene and I ' ll bring him back in time to turn down everybody he chooses. " " ' All ' s fair in love and war, ' " sang Lewis, as the two went on. " it ' s rather a nuisance to you, isn ' t it? " " The onlv objection I have is that it ' s decidedly hard on Eugene. " ou people seem to have an idea that shall answer his bids for him, — think for him. in other words. " " Naturallv, an older girl who is a close friend and who knows a lot about fraternities will have a pull. I sa - — look here. Miss W ' alden. our fell, )ws waiU cu to talk for us. Can ' t you help us? " Frances ' brown eyes flashed. " I should llinik vou ' d rather pull -our men yourselves. And I ' d rather not discuss Eugene and fraternities anv more, so dim ' t iiiiiilh ' ii tlu-ni tu uw again I " Lewis didn ' t. The morning of the nineteenth was bright and cleai, and when Stevens and ' ill iughby drove up to Miss Walden ' s boarding place, she and Miss Lane came out radiant and smiling. " Miss Lane ' s Aliiha Sigma-ism ' will lend atmosphere to the occasion. Vou are to sit 199 hv Etigene. however, " Stevens said in an undertone t ' ) Frances. She flashed a warning glance at him, but he bravely whispered as he helped her into the trap: " can ' t talk frat. hut yoii can, and you iinist. We ' re de-perate, and, Frances, don ' t go hack on a friendship that nuisl have meant something. It means three college years, you know. " " And how is Eugene, this morning? " was Frances ' satisfactory reply. " Glorias morn- ing, Jisn ' t il " The drive proved delightful, as drives must be when four congenial young people are cutting classes on a spiing day in January. Stevens, true to his promise, steered clear of every- thing Greek, and Miss Lane, who possessed a remarkable degree of tact, was serenely pleasant to Willoughby, with only a nervous glance now and then. If vStevens was serious in declaring his " dependence " on Frances, he was leaning on a frail support, for in spite of an appealing droop to Stevens ' broad shoulders and even a stealthy pinch from Miss Lane, she appeared pcrfectlv unconscious of the fact that .Stevens was on the verge of nervous pro ' tration and even the Freshman less calm than usual, as the morning wore on. With tantalizing pleasantries she talked scenerv, the last theatre, " shop, " anything but fraternity, only excla.ming, when Fred- erick, a Ciamma Theta Rho, was mentioned, that he was a " darling dancer. " The strain began to tell, but Frances wa " merciless, every smile firing at Stevens the message: " You got yourself in this place; now get out. " And Stevens telegraphed back: " You didn ' t promise to help, but I th ' iught I could depend on you. " Willoughby ' s eyes he assiduously avoided. They were on the way home when Stevens, with an apology, glanced at his watch. " Bv T ' lvel It ' s ten miinites after one I We stayed on the mountain longer than I thought.

" Mabel, in front of the dressing-table, was tying on the last of a series of veils over her much labored -upon pompadour, and the reflection in the mirror smiled across the room at the girl before the table.

I am sure you can ' t last long! — well, Tata, take care of ( urself, and study hard. " And she swept nut of the room. A moment later, she poked her head back in the door, " If it ' s any con- solation, I might as well tell you that George is not going to be there with another girl — he ' s got to be initiated to-night, vou know.

The labor went on, and along in the middle of the seventeenth page, she became vague ly aware that there was something or somebody down on the front porch. Horrors ! If it should be a burglar, and] she alone in the house ! vShe had often tried to imagine what she f i would do, if caught in such a situation, and had been quite sure that she would be able to de fend herself someway, even with the poker or hat-pins. But this burglar, — she grew weak — might have a pistol! She sat breathless for some scccmkIs. There was certainlv someone moving below her window. ' ith a mighty effort, she pulled herself together. Why should she sit there helpless and let that awful man get into the house? What would a man do in her place? She would boldly ask what this intruder wanted!

Cio vfc. 203 uhe.r We M © UHHRT emerged from the Pulit class, flushed and contentious after a warm disscussion of the theory of trusts, and strolled down the coriidor with some dignity, as became one on whose present wrestlings might hang the fate of the nation in times to come. He joined the one o ' clock push down stairs, and passed out through the rear door into the ove -friendly welcoming of the May sunshine. He swung down the green slope towards the Hall, white-faced under its glaring red head-piece. Looking idly up at the .Moorishly mineratted roof, he thought for an instant that he saw the floating draperies of some blind niuczzin. ascending to call the faithful to prayei. But on a startled readjustment of his mental camera, he recognized one of Jackson ' s sweaters, the most glectul of the lot, disporting itself from its owner ' s window underneath the nor ' liwest tower. With a semi- grin at the fancy, he hurried on, in obedience to the more material summons of the dinner- bell. Up the stairs, and through the narrow, barracked hall to his room, third from the east, left. Hat jerked off, books aimed with the precision of gun drill, at the pillow on the bed. The dresser had such a reproachful, forsaken air, as he looked over to it, that he turned hastily away. Tha kodak picture (the group, vou kn , with Her in ' he foreground) being banished to the top drawer at its possessor ' s last particular and private inquisition, now avenged itself by haunting that possessor in the guise of an especially winsome and much-to-be-desired ghost. On turning to the wall, things were no better. For there hung the cherished memento of last alentine ' s day: the tiny picture of her own laughing face, and opposite, a most jocular speci- men of the donkey tribe, with the inscription: " Laugh and the world laughs with you: " be- neath, the same roguish face, set over against a sympathetic represintatinn of the mournfulest burro that ever brayed, streaming tears all over the legend: " ' ep, and i)u weep alone. " Hubert ' s lips twitched a little as he looked at it. It was one of Annice ' s clever ideas; she had mounted the pictures and sent them to him, and he had been so pleased with them, then. Xow, he wondered, a little bilterl -, how the thing had ever anuised liim. lie asked himself idly if the mere fact of unhappy dcnkeyhood oppressed the little animal as it did him. He was the beast ' s bi other in sorrow, and — he was alone, too. Wlieii she cared for him. so 204 long ago (a vear, at least, he had liad iiioiKV. and " ]5ri)specs. " Then the lailure caiiie. and here he was, with an uncomfortably fluctuating currency, and only hand-carved prospects. The two had dragged along miserably until last month, when he had sat down, and staring defiantly at the donkev, had written her a letter wherein he embodied some of the facts in the case, as stated above. He had been a donkey, indeed, to imagine that she could continue to care for a fellow in his plight, and he was really glad that the suspense was ended. For evi- dently this letter had opened her eyes to the truth of the situation, and she had made her de- cision. The long month of waiting and half-acknowledged watching was past. Xow she would never write. How he had dreaded, yet longed for, that letter ! Away down in his heart there reigned a dumb stillness that was worse than if the hush had been broken by actual re- bufi " . He had thought that she would write, but then so had he thought many other things, loo. He had even dreamed of work and happiness, and Love ' s triumph. But all that was in the old days, and not good to think of. Hubert stared at the unhappy quadruped upon the wall with such profound sympathy that the Sphinx might have pitied him. The dejected lit ' .le beast was playing a classic role, had it but known it; in the ecstasy of his misery, it served as a sort of katharsis for his emotion. Sorrowfully he thought, as he gazed at it. that there was one lesson, at least, it could teach him, that of patient endurance in sufl ' ering; and he set his teeth grimly. And now came a clatter in the corridors that aroused him from his revery. The long roll of thunder on the uncarpeted stairs presently announced the descent of the boys to dinner. Hubert slowly gathered himself together and closed his door rather softly, tramped away down-stairs. His jaw looked unusually square, and there were danger signals in his eyes; the rush on the stairs, and the mad bustle in the dining-room irritated him vaguely. He felt oddly out-of-place and disturbed, with himself most of all. Soon the hundred and thirty young men were busily absorbed in, or rather. absf)rbing, their meal. The white-coated waiters flitted across the floor, and in an l out among the tables. Knives and forks rendered their duet in cheerful monotone, to the accompaniment of rapidly shifted dishes. There was not very much conversation, the Inisiness of the lu.ur was far too serious for that. At Hubert ' s table a caucus of apjiroval was held on the soup. " Have some nKjre, Carter, you look hungrier than evei, " suggested Morton. ••.Win, lutn, go way back and sit down, Satan, " retorted Carter, diving for the milk pitcher. ' Don ' t vou see that my mind is fixed on higher things? I ' ve a quiz coming on mortgages and convevances, and nuistn ' t cloud the workings of my intellect by yielding to the temptations of ap]xtite. " And Carter, who was a loyal follower of the Peregrinus, hastily llnished his coffee and departed. " What ' s the matter with Hubert? " said Cobdeii, winking abstractedly at his left-hand neighbor. " Only two things can make a fellow look as he has been looking for a month past: there ' s either a belle or a ' bust ' in the case. " And Medford stared in a seh-satisfied fashion at the " antique " fruit piece tha. adorned the nearest arch, lie aspired to be epigrammatic, and was tolerated — for his other virtues. " That ' s so; what d ' you do in Polit to-day? ' ' " Xo one ever accused vou of being a rusher, so it nuist be that. " Hubert grunted in a non-committal fashion, and pushed back his chair. He was not in the mood for talk, and mounted the stairs to his room as dolefully as he had descended them. Trainor brushed past in the corridor, and thrust some belated mail into his hand. He put it in his pocket, and went into his room. When he had shut the door, it seemed as if the spirit of loneliness that had stalked along with him all the day, had entered too. He was ashamed of himself for yielding to his depression, yet could not rouse himself. He thought, with a dim ache at his heart, of Annice ' s pet name for him: " Hubert the Bold, " and wondered grimly what she would say if she were to see him sulking mi the dumps, like a coward. That was the " way he put it to himself. With an impatient sound that was half a groan, he drew out his letters and turned them over listlessly. He had ceased to expect the once familiar, dainty blue envelopes, addressed with correct angularity. The first was a kind communication Irom a down-town shoe firm, to inform him of the latest arrivals in footwear. With a quizzical frown he tossed it away, and took up the new Texan — What was this, peeping out from between its sheets? His great brown paw trembled, in spite of himself, as he extracted the blue envelope from its shelter. It yield- ed to the energetic, yet reverent persuasion of his penknife (he never could bring himself to tear one of her letters), and a small card fell out. He picked it up. It was a companion piece to that which adorned his wall. There was his old friend Jie donke -. done in water-colors, more mournful, if that were possible, than before. Under it were printed the initials " H. B. ' ' At the opposite end of the pasteboard was fastened a tinv kodak picture. It was Annice her- self. Hubert scanned it carefully. It was like her, and yet somehow unlike the Annice whom he had known. What was the matter? The wielder of the kodak, probably her vounger sister, had snapped her standing in the great window, looking out down the elm-shaded ave- nue. How many times he had come u]) that path to Paradise, and found her standing there looking I ' or IiimI Tlu ' jjielure brought a rush nf memories. But then her face had alwavs been alight wiili hai)])iness, joyously uplifted like that of an ex])eetant child. . nd here lier whole figure had a ixithetic dnxjp. the eves look wistfulh- out. as if thev had watched until 206 weary; even the comers of her mouth curved sorrowi ' uUy; her hands were clasped together in a nerv ous little gesture which he remembered to be her signal of absolute dejection. His heart went out to her in love and tenderness as he noted it all. Something was printed across the card, between her ]jicture and the water-color. He spelled out the quaintly shaped characters. The line read: " Weep, and vnu eep alone. " The last letter seemed to have been slightly blotted by something. The man jumped to his feet. He was himself again — " Hubert the Bold. " — Helen Raley. The Fellowr in Greek. HE FELLOW L GREEK laid his volume of Sophocles on the lalile and leaned back in the chair. He remained in this position for sev- eral minutes staring straight ahead. Occasionally a cloud would darken his handsome face and a little frown would play between his quiet gray eyes, then vanish. He was awakened from his revery by a sound that came from the mantelpiece. The little clock had struck one. He arose with a sigh, yawned, and shot his arms towards the ceiling. " Well, " he mumbled, " I didn ' t know that it was so late. The CEdipus Rex was unusually interesting to-night. I didn ' t know I had been reading so long. Guess it ' s because I have been thinking all day about Fate and " The sound of a closing door below, followed by some one slowly ascending the stairs, interrupted him. He was still standing by his chair when the dooi of the room was slowly pushed open and his room-mate, the ex-Football Captain, entered. " Hello, Doc, " he began, " I saw youi light and guessed that you were up here convers- ing with your old Greeks. Wish I had stayed here with you to-night instead of going to the dance. Gad, I ' 11 be glad when all this is over. To-monow night the Final Ball and then — well that ' s all— that will be the end. By Jove, Doc, " he continued as he threw his coat on the lounge and laid his hat on the table, " that will be the end and I hate to think about it, don ' t you? " As the ex-Football Captain asked this question lie took a cigarette from a silver case that lay on the mantel and looked at his friend. The two men who stood thus regarding each oilier were er dilTerent types. The ex- Captain was a blonde ; the fellow in Greek was a brunette. The light-brown, curly hair and clear complexion of the man who leaned against the mantel in no way resembled the heavy suit of black straight hair and the dark complexion of his friend who stood in the middle of the room. There was a twinkle in the clear blue eyes of the ex-Captain and a curve about his mouth that showed the pleasure kner in him. lliere was an expression in the quiet gray eyes 208 of the tVllow in Gieek that told of liiddcn- fire: and something about the lirni mouth hinted of a wild nature that was held in check no matter how hard it tried to break its bonds. And the figure of the fellow in Greek with the stoop about his shoulders that told, of nights of study con- trasted unfavorably with the tall, graceful, well-proportioned, athletic figure o ' the man who stood by the mantel absent-mindedly smoking a cigarette. The fellow in Greek was silent for a moment. Presently he walked over to the window and looked out upon the night. He remained by the window for se eral moments gazing at the stars and listening to the call of a whip-poor-will not far away. When he turned and gazed at his friend there was an expression of pain in his quiet gray eyes. " Yes, " he began in a low voice, " I hate to think about it. It makes me think about other things — about the greater end, and what that will be. It seems like Fate — everything must end — like the Fate that o!d .Sophocles wrote about. " " Oh, " replied the ex-Ca]itain, " I hadn t thought about it that wav. " " No? " " Xo. " " By the way. Doc. " continued the ex-Captain after a pause, " of course vou are going to the ball to-morrow night ? " " No, I guess not, " replied the fellow in Gieek. " What! " " Xo, Cap, I guess I ' ll not go. Vou know how little I care for such things. Beside, you see, I ' d rather stay here and talk with mv old Greeks. Thev tell me so much. " " () rats, Doc, do without that to-morrow night. Come on to the ball. I ' m going to take Kate, you know, and she ' ll be disappointed if you are not there. You know how much she admires you. Wli ' , you ' ve hypnotized that giil. She doesn ' t care about football and ath- letics any more. She wants to be always talking about those darned old Greeks. " A slight flush lit up the face of the fellow in Greek. He slowlv clenched his hands and pressed his lips together. " Is that so? " he quietly replied. " Yes, by the eternals, it is so. " replied the ex-Captain, " and I don ' t like it so much, either. If I didn ' t know you so well I ' d be jealous. Anxhow, Doc. I wish vou would ge ' all these notions out (A hei head if you can. " The fellow in Greek did not answer for a moiiient. He was ihinking iiitentlv. Presently he looked u]) ami slowly replied: " All right, I ' ll go. Please save the fourteenth and liftt-enlh I ' orine. " He walked over to the table and picked up his ha I. " I think I ' ll go out for a little walk before 1 rt ' lire, Cap. Do xou caie to go along? " " Not mucli. thank vou. " rt-])lie(l liie ex Captain. " I ' m ratiier tired; guess I ' ll turn in. Good night. " 209 " Good night. He sure not lo forget the fuiirleenlh and lilteenlh, " he ealled back as lie walked out. It was not long after his friend ' s departure before the light was turned out and the ex- Captain was in bed. " 1 hope old Doe wtni ' t wake me when he conies in, " he was thinking as he slowly fell asleep. " I ' m glad I know the old boy " -o well, for if I didn ' t I ' d be — jealous — for — Kate — " and the deep breathing of the sleeper was all that could be heard in the room. When the fellow in Greek returned, an hour latei, the ex-Captain was sound asleep. He stood beside the bed and looked down at his friend. " I wonder, " he muttered to himself, " I wonder if he e er imagined how much I ' w her. Xo, I guess not, " he continued; " I ' ve kept my secret pretty well. What difference would it make anyway? He wouldn ' t care. He has her. She loves him and I guess they ' 11 soon be — oh, the luckv dog! " He walked away from the bed and hastily undressed. Soon he wa ; fast asleep dreaming about football — Fate — the gods, and through it all — ever present — theie walked the vision of a beautiful girl who looked at him with the loveliest eye. in the woild and pleaded with him to tell hei moie about the old Greeks. Once in the night he called out : " I love her! I love her! " The ex-Captain was awakened by the noise. He sat up in bed and looked t his fiiend. " That ' s all right, Doc, " he mumbled, " though it does seem darned strange to think that oii are in love with anybody. W ' ho is she ? " A loud snore was his answer. " Humph, " he replied as he lay down; " that answer is about as good as any coming from vou. I guess it ' 11 keep till morning. Please don ' t worry me any more about it to-night. But I wonder who the devil you are talking about? Guess its some old — Greek — Clytie, or — Aphrodite— or — " the ex-Captain was ' -ound asleep. Outside a little breeze sprang up. The lea -es began to tremble. The whip-poor-will over on the branch not far away still called to his mate. Then the little clock on the mantel st.uck three. And the two college chums slept peacefully. II It was past two o ' clock when the fellow in Greek stepi)ed out of his cab at the Driskill Hotel. The sound of music floated to him as he ascended the stairs. He was rather late, but he judged that he would be in time for the fourteenth and fifteenth dance, and after that, of course, he would be free to go home. He walked on up the stairs and over to the dressing room, checked his hat and overcoat, and stepped up to the punch table. The waiter handed him a glass. He raised it to his lips and was just about to drink when a voice stopped hina. " Well, well, look at the member of the faculty drinking punch. " He turned quickly and saw her standing near by leaning against a post and sm ' ling at him. For a moment he hardly knew what to do. She stoo l there regarding him so quietly and calmly with that smile oa her face. He imagined that something must be wrong. He looked at his eet to see if he had forgotten to button his shoes. Then he felt of his collar to see if he ' really had on a necktie and lastly he raised his hand to his head to see if he had brushed his hair. Being satisfied that everything was right and m its proper place he set the glass of punch on the table and walked toward her. He had a wild singing desiie to rush up antl embrace her and press a thousand kisses on her pietty moutli. He earned to press her to hini so that she could hear the beating of his heart and then to whisper to her the secret that he had so long con- cealed. He thought once of crying out as loud as ho could so that every one could hear him — for he wanted them all to know — " I love hei ! " Then he noticed for the first time — and just in time — that his friend was standing by her side and looking at her with a calm smile of pos- session on his tace. He came b;ick to earth by the time he reached her and his voice was quiet and controlled as he began : " Am I on tin.e? " " You just are, " she leplied. " The next is the fouiteeiilh and if vou had not been here I should have nevei spoken to you again — that ' s society eticjuette. ou know, " and she bioke off with a laugh in which he nervously joined. " Excuse me, " interrupted the ex-Captain, " but I ' ll leave you two lo vour old Greeks. Be careful, Kate, and don ' t let Doc hypnotize ym. " he laughingly remarked as he walked awav. " As if vou could, " she said, looking at him. " Yes, er — why — yes, the very — er — idea, as if I could, whw of cour e — how foolish, " he stammered, and wished at the same time that some merciful friend would tjuiotly step up and knock him in the head. He always acted like this when with her He always succeeded in making a chump of himself. But to-Uight he had hoped to do better. She looked so perfect — so good — so pure. He gazed at her and there was a hungry expression on his face. But he said not a word. He only stood and gazed and dreamed. A breath of the spring time — the song of a mocking bird — the scent of cool growing grass, the murmur of a little brook running along through some deep forest and making love t o the violets that hang over the banks and kissed it as it passed by, an odor of wild flowers — in all this atmosphere he seemed to move and live and have his being. She stood before him like a lelic of bygone age when all women were innocent and beautiful — she seemed a perfect type o " that Grecian beaut that he was alwavs wondering about, " Do vou caie to dance !• " " he f)egaii. " ' h ' , no, " she replied, " I ]jreler to talk — or lather to hear jou talk. Tell me al)out vour Cneeks. " " Here in this place!- It would I)e desecration. " She smiled and looked up at him. " Yes, I know, " she said, gazing at him intently, " but you can ' uake me forget ail this — and — and that ' s why I want you to talk to nie. You can make me forget that these jieople — these society dandies — are pygmies; you can make me forget the hollowness of it all. " He looked at hei wonderingly. " Do you mean that? " She gazed at him with a puzzled expression on her pretty face. The way in which he asked that question — the tone of his voice — and that expression in his quiet gray eyes disturbed her. But she answered boldly. " Whv not? You have shown all to me — and I have seen — that mind and soul are all. ' ■ ' But, " he protested, " I didn ' t mean to. " " No, " she replied calmly. " I know you didn ' t. That ' s why I saw. " " But football? " he began, with a twinkle in his eyes. " Have vou forgotten that Thanksgiving is long past? " " But does the glory end with the Thanksgiving game? " " Yes, it is ended there. Only the glory of higher and better and nobler things — of heait and mind and soul live on. Football men don ' t think about such things — they — " " There you are wrong, " he interrupted. " Why look at old Cap; there never was a nobler fellow in the world. Why, he ' s ideal, he ' s " " Excuse me, " she int(.-rrupted him and her face was flushed, " but have you ever read Miles Standish? " He raised his head and gazed intenllv at her. She met his look for a mc ment boldly, but only for a moment, then her gaze fell. There was a light in his (|uiet gray eyes that she had never seen there before and she felt a little frightened. " Tell me, " he said slowly, " what do you wish me to do? " " I wish vou would talk to me about v. ur old Greeks, " she replied. " I love tliciii. " The fellow in Greek slowly brushed the hair back from his forehead and paused a moment as though to collect his thoughts. Then he began to talk. At first his voice was low and almost trembled at times, and there was a note of pain in it. Gradually as he talked his face took on an expression of earnestness and force. He looked away and into space as though somewhere back in the darkness and mystery of a thousand years or more he saw something. He forgot where he was and fell to dreaming, lb ' had wiped out the centuries that separated him from that Greece he loved so well and the men he adored who lived in that time. He was alone in his own world. A smile flitted across his face as he thought of that age and then of modern times. And on and on he talked of war and warriors, of peace and beautiful women of Fate, of love, of the gods. i And the girl who sat beside him grew more eager each moment. She leaned forward and listened intently as though she feartd she would lose one word. She studied the man ' s lace all the tinie. " All, ves, " he said, ' ' ' there were giants in those davs ' and dreamers, too, and beautiful women who were innocent. But it ' s the diearners that I love, and the women who were inno- cent. For they — the dreamers — were the first to learn that there was a God, and they, and the innocent women, loved this world as He made it. Now, how different! Men aie too busy to think great thoughts and women too wise to be innocent. A fool is bom each moment, a poet once in a hundred vears. TIil poet dreams aud starves and loves and dies, and the money market of the world fluctuates not one bit. The poet listens to the heaitbeat of hu- manity, and the fool only hears the thiob of an engine. But the world laughs at the poet and praises the fool and calls him a captain of industry. Gold gilds the stiaitened forehead of the fool, while sorrow and suffering and God paints a picture on the brow of the poet. And so — " " Jump over a ' " ew thousand vears, Kate, " interrupted a voice, " and come back to the present. This is mv dance. " The fellow in Greek and the girl who sat beside Iiini looked up. The ex-Captain was standing by them and looking at the girl, and tliere was that calm smile of possession again. The girl arose. " Oh, Bob, " she said, " I ' m not well. 1 feel sick and your generous room-mate has offered to take me home. Xow du stav here and have a good time, for I don ' t want to spoi ' your pleasure. " " But Kate, " he piotested, ■ ' I ' ll take — " ■ Xo, you won ' t, " she interrupted, laying her hand gently on his arm, " you remain here and the member of the faculty will see me home. " She turned and walked away to the dressing room. Presently she returned and said that she was readv. As they walked away the ex-Captain looked at them. " Now, I ' d be real jealous, " he was thinking, " if it was any one but old Doe. But no dangei of the old Doc loving anybody, " and he laughed as he walked toward the punch table. The fellow in Greek was silent as he folliiwed the girl. ()nlyonce did he speak. That was when they passed the ball room and looked in at the dancers. " After all, " he said, as though talking to himself, while he looked at llie whiiling couples, " after all, I suppose the fool is happiest, for he never knows. " " No, " she answered, looking up at him, " vou aie wnaig. The poet is the ha])piest. Only those who feel and suffer can really be happy. " And they walked on. And the fellow in Greek felt llial he had learned something. The speech of the girl dazed him for tlu ' moiTuiU and left him mute. He walked along without saying a word. He was still rather (lunil)f(iuiuled wluii he suddenly realized that he was in the carriage, that the girl was beside him, and the horses were moving at a furicnis rate. The girl was the first to speak: " I said I was sick. " " V(.s: " " And I lifd, " she said calndv. " Yes, I know you did, " he replied. " Then what do you think of me? " " I ' m glad you did " " Why? " " Because I wanted to have an opportunity to tell you something, " he said. " I ' m not brave enough to keep it; but it won ' t matter any, so I ' m going to tell you. I love you — have loved you for four years — will, but no — that makes no difference. I just love you, that ' s all. If I have done wrong. I hope vou will forgive me — but I couldn ' t help telling you. " He turned and looked out of the window. " Rut — but vou didn ' t do wrong, " she replied. " Why? " he asked, without looking around.

" A woman ' s answer, " he said softly. " Theie ' s something in it, after all. " " Grace Halll Grace Hall! Grace Hall! " yelled the cabman, beating on the side of the carriage.

HERE IS A CERTAIN YOUNG LADY in this school who used to be very dear to me; in fact I was wont to think of her as ' mv girl ' . I have long since banish- ed, or to be honest, she has long since banished such an idea from mv mind. I now call her the ' Unsolved Puzzle ' : and she — well she has foi gotten me I no longer exist so far as she is concerned. " " Well, to begin at the beginning. As I have told (iu fellers before, when I came down here I didn ' t know a soul. I went through that matriculalin, business like a lot of other green freshies; bought elevator tickets, bought a Y. M. C. A. hand-book, and all that sort of thing. I was about plumb disgusted with everything, and began wishin ' I was at home ffedin ' the pigs once more, when I saw Her. I never will forget how she looked that day. She was wear- in ' a bluish. purple dress of some kind of fluffy stuff — ' tuUey, ' that ' s what it was, or maybe it was ' applique ' . Any way she was a dream all right — the kind that comes to a fellow when he has done somethin ' real good, and has gone to bed feelin ' that all is well with liini. She wore a soft squashy straw hat with some purplish lookin ' veilin ' on it. ' (jre it kiiulcr pulled down in front. Xo, don ' t lemember anvthing more about her logs, ' cause just ' 1)( U tlial time she looked up. ' ou know she was studvin ' a catalogue in the faculty room. " " Well, when she looked up, it was all over with me. Plumb forgot that little blonde girl l)ack home wlio was a wearin ' m - horsehair ring. Those eyes! — Say, fellows, did you e -ei see the sky just after the sun ' s set. when all the briglit ,t;old clouds have faded into blues and purples of everv tint. Will, if dii ha e, just mix thosi- blues and purples togethei, and vou ' ll have a kind of idea of wliat 1 foinid m self a lookin ' into. I stood there an ' rubbered an ' rubbered with mv heart a punipin ' like a wind mill on a breez - day. l ' " inally she smiled kind o ' wearv like. I edged over toward her, and kicked over a chair which jarred her cata- ogue off the table. " 216 " Vou can bet I picked up thai book. I made all kinds of apologies. Told 1 was from the farm, I think. Tried to find the place where she had been readin ' , and acted a derned fool generally. She smiled one of those smiles — not a tired one this time — but a brand new one full of kindness mixed with amusement, and tcld me not to mind. I don ' t know how it happened, but anyway, first thing I knew, I was a tellin ' her about the farm, and the chick- ens and the geese. and Mother, and what I intended to do. We talked a tliunderin ' long time, and I wts a gettin ' ready to help her matriculate when a duffer came uj) whou ' she called ' cousin. ' She got up, gave me a smile, and dri ' " ted off down the corridor. " " Well, 1 saw her in the corridor pretty regularly after work began, but she never even looktil m - wa ' . It nearh ' killed me. You know I wasn ' t onto city ways. People in the coun- try are so different as to social regulations. Iiverybod " sa -s ' howdy ' to everybody else, whethei thev have been ' introduced ' or not. I got the hang o ' things pretty C|uick, and swore I ' d get a formal introduction. Couldn ' t cut it imtil the night o the I ' blow-out. CW)! it all right that night. She smiled as sweetly as ever, and gave me a dance. Didn ' t know wha to do with it after she gave it to me, but when ours come, she suggested sittin ' it out which I was mighty glad to do. " " I ' rom then on the rest was easv — so far as gettin ' to call on her. send her candy, go drivin ' , and all that. The more I saw her and knew her. the better 1 liked her. ' es, I guess I lo ed her. I know I liked her in a way dift ' erent fiom the way I liked other girls. " " Things diifted along, and I was imaginin ' I was the whole show so far as she was con- cerned. She never encouraged me verv much, but since she didn ' t discourage me, I let it go at maiden-modestv, and began to la ' plans for our future life in which a big mansion, a car- riage and horses, and a box at the theatre were the things to be. Xo, of course. I didn ' t tell lier all that. I was goin ' to surprise her. The surprise was mine, however. " " Bv that time mv Trat pin had come from Auld, and you can imagine what I hatl al- ready intended to do with it. Well, the next Sunda - afternoon, I went o er to the Hall, and we strolled out to the Insane Asylum grounds. It was there I asked her to wear my pin She told me in words most honeyed that she appreciated tiie honor, and all that, and that she would give me an answer in the near ' iiture. Of course I wailed. .Vttrilmted her refusal to maiden-modesty again. Never dreamed of that other booster. " " Three or fom davs later, one of tiie fellows told me that she was wearin ' her cousin ' s frat pin. I wouldn ' t believe it until I saw it gleamin ' there ' on her waist. ' es. I was sore, h ' elt (|ueer about the eve-brows. I ' elt as if UiN ' best friend had hit me over the head with a stick of stove-wood. She came up to me next tia ' after the great event, and told me slu! had 217 put on a frai pin (to which I said that 1 slill ri-taint-d my eve sight), hoped that we wtmld still be friends, and all that rot. " ' ■ o. I haven ' t been to see her since. She had a righc to do as she pleased about it. I ' ve conijjletely recovered from my tumble. Have the finest lady in the land now. Pinned her last night. . o, I ' ll tell you some other time. I ' m a goin ' to turn in. " — Edward Crane. 218 pemme Propose. jfav rei-n eves, and when he I.

This was her third year, and the freshman girls and boys who had, proudly conscious of their importance, just taken part in the grand march, seemed ages younger than herself. The little excited knots of late comers, still struggling over their programmes, were infinitely removed from her plane, and she watched amusedly the vi()- lent efforts of a certain Alpha Omicron to cut a freshman out of the group of a rival frat man. A slim oung girl with a delicate high bred face and bronzy hair (brought out strikingly by the Nile-green gown she wore) was standing near the palm. Some half-dozen men were agitating themselves over her pro- gramme, while an older girl— chief rusher for Zeta Upsi- lon — who had introduced them, was talking to her, inter- estingly, absorbingly, quite oblivious of a third girl, a Beta Gam, who was hovering, with a would-be uncon- scious air, in the middle distance, for iIk- girl was Elizabeth Cunningham, ■ ' the pick of ihat year ' s class, " and every Sororilv in ihi- school was rushing her. " Thai ' s where 1 ouglil to be, you know. " said Mar- ' y. waving languidly at the animated gioup. " but 1 can ' t rush, except in the mosi futile style, and besides, I think 1 should rather be here. By the way, Mr. Worthinglon, where are the nunierous representati -es of the Phi Alpha and Alpha 0.,and Delta K., and the .others? 1 thought %-ou never moved ' without a retimie. " The man beside her — a much sought- after Junior Law — smiled. He had long smiled thev crinkled u|) adorabh ' . 219 " I ' m not moving jnsl now, ' lie said, " and wlic-n I do I am not so pursued as -a seem to think. There ' s our dance, " as the first waltz began. " I certainly was in luck to get to bring you to-r.ight. " Thev forced their way through the stream o. men and girls in the hall to the dancing room, and thev began the waltz. Sam W ' orthington was almost small, but he danced perfect- ly, it seemed to Miss Shelton, and good dancing was a powerful appeal to her favor. She her self, as a man once told her, moved over the floor " like a hand-painted sea breeze, " and, too, it was becoming to her, for the motion flushed her cheeks, which were usually a trifle pale, and loosened her dark hair just enough. Besides, languor was very appropriate to a waltz, and— as she well knew — the drooping o ' dark la; hes made her eyes seem even bluer than usual. That was trulv a charming waltz, and when it was over they hurried to their window-seat behind the palm. But ' orthington. with a peremptory gesture, stopped Margy before she was seated. " Here, don ' t you sit by that open window, you are sure to take cold, " and he pulled the window down. She protested a little haughtily, but submitted, and somehow she did not seem averse to dancing the rest o ' " the dances — and her showed several which she had with the autocratic Junior Law. In fact she was afterwards accused of cutting various other men ' s legitimate numbers to give them to Sam Worthington. She proclaimed in the dressing room that she had " never enjoyed a fresh, reception so much, " and when Sam asked her, at her door, if he might take her walking the next day, ' ■he said. " We, that is the Zeta Upsilons, you know, are going to ha e a little tea down at the chapter-room tomorrow — but I think the girls will let me ofT for the first part of the afternoon. Yes, I ' ll go with you, and we can drop into the chapter room later. " " All right. Good-bye. " But she, climbing the stairs a little wearily, turned on the light in her room and looked dreamilv at her programme for full five minutes. " Do you know, " she said softly, " I believe — if I let ir -self — that I could care ' " or that man? " II. It had been a glorious afternoon. The sun was fully three times as bright as it had any right to be in November, and there was just breeze enough to bring a wonderful coloi into Margv ' s face. She had enjoyed her walk immensely, despite the fact that Sam had ordered her into the best paths with more than his usual impel iousness. His eyes had, somehow, not crinkled m uch during the walk — he had been, in fact portentously solemn — but Maigy had made up for his grumpiness by a most radiant humor. vShe was positively iridescent although her companion was hardly responsive. When they entered the chapter-room every available space, it seemed, had been taken by the seekers after tea. But Margy, smiling joyously, swept the cover and vase from a little table in the corner of the loom, and slipping on the table and clasping her hands round her knee, she turned expectantly toward Worthington. " I hav ' e been talking all afternoon, a perfect blue streak, and you haven ' t said a word, it ' s youi turn now. Never mind the tea, they will bring us some in a minute. " Sam had made a tentative start toward the tea-table but now he stojiped, his hands clenched in his jxjckets, and scowled savagely at the floor. " I ' ve got something to say, " he bUirled cnil at lust, ■and I don ' t know how. Well, it is just this. I have been appointed second lieutenant, company K of the fourth Texas, and I must leave ' or the Philippines next week. " A subtle change came over the girl ' s face, the hands around her knees tightened their clasp. Then she straightened her shoulders and smiled bravely, radiantlv. " Of course, " she said, and her voice, a bit unsteady at first, became quite firni. " of course we shall miss you horribly — you have been an aw-fully gc»d friend o ' " the Zetas — but it will be perfectly dandy for you, and I certainly congratulate you. " She got down from the table and called aloud: " Girls, girls, great news I .Mi. Worth ington is going to be a great hero. His countrv calls. " she laughed gailv. " and he leaves — for the Philippines, is it — next week. " The othei girls gathered round him, a clamorous group, exclaiming, bewailing, protest- ing, while the various men in the room stood where they were, looking awkward and intenselv ht!pless. It was noticeable that the Phi Alphas did not seeni surprised. But Marjorie slipped out tt the poich, alone, and stood staring into the dusk. " I am glad. " she smiled, a little tiueerlv. " verv glad, that I didn ' t learn to care. " — Vi)(!inia Rice. Jl .t o Vi 11 t A- - -»o.- .

S " " CHOOI, ' ( )l ' LD OPEX in a few days, and many of the old students were already on the ground. The desirable rooms in the immediate vicinity of the University P were fast filling up. The chapter house of one of the strongest Greek letter fra- ternities in school was the scene of extraordinary activity. Trunks were arriving hourly, a couple of negros were unpacking the furniture, and things were rapidly being put in shape for the boys. Ten or twelve were already there the particular night of which write, and were lounging easily in the billiard room. Some had been back long enough to unpack and get out their smoking jackets and dressing gowns, while the fresh arrivals were still in their cinder-besprmkled traveling clothes. They greeted each other with applause, the handshakings were hearty, and some particularly close friends were weak and feminine enough to embrace each other. It was ten o ' clock in the evening, old joshes were sprung and the merry yarns went round. . ow and then loud guffaws apprized the neighbors of the fact that some fellow had successfully worked off a gag. Jack Fleming caught an unsuspected sophomore on a sell which was elaborately worked up and unerringly discharged at the proper moment, and he was the hero for the time being. He soon, how-ever. yielded place in the gang ' s estimation to Hiram I ' ield whose story was about the newest and funniest in jokedom. One gave the lloor to another until they had all about exhausted themselves. Harry Wadsworth had up to this time quietly kept his corner, moody, and silent — which was something unusual for " Hal. " Somehow- he didn ' t enter into the spirit of the occasion as was his wont, but hung back, dispirited and grumpy. Soon, however, the attention of the crowd became centered upon him. and he saw- that it was no use to try to hide. Responding to vociferous calls for ' Hal " and " Waddy, " he allowed liimsclf to be draggetl forward. " I ' ellows, " he begged. " I ' m in no humour to tell yarns and still less to enjoy them. I had a good stock when I left home, and carefully rehearsed several during the earlv part of my iournev. They were daisies but llie ' t.- all left me. I ' m nothing now but a dis- orderlj ' vacuum, a distressed hiatus. " He paused to see if they would let him off. " What ' s the matter? " queried several at once. " Done by a confidence man, " suggested one. ■ ' Mama ' s boy ' s frightened now he ' s ' w-ay from home, " sobbed another with kinder- garten accent and manner. " You ' re all wrong, " said Hal. " I ' ve simply had an experience on the train coming down that has made me feel like thirty cents, and has convinced me finally that I ' m the real original human ass. " " Remarkable conversion, " quoth Fleming. " Out with it, " shouted two or three. " Well, if vou ' ve got to have a tale out of me, it ' s got to be . for that ' s all I ' m able to think of just at present. " The bovs had become interested, for Hal ' s tales always had point and savor to them ; and, as he had proven himself full of artifice on former occasions, none knew but what all this preparation was a sham, and none were sure that he had really had an experience. " Well, it was this way, " he began. " When I woke up about a hundred miles up the road this afternoon, there was an old gentleman sitting in the seat beside me. He proved to be quite a companionable chap, and we chatted along very pleasantly for a while. " " Then he suggested a game of cards, didn ' t he? " asked one of Hal ' s auditors anticipating. " Danm it, " roared Hal, " I ' m telling this. " It was a common saying among the boys that " if you want to get Hal hot. just try to stop his story. " " Order, " chimed several. " Proceed, " conmianded Fleming. " Well, just as the train was rolling out of a little station, a girl about eighteen en- tered the coach from the front end. " " Woman in the case, " chirped one of the boys. " And fellows, she was a beautv, " continued Hal, too much enthused to notice the interruption. " Beauty don ' t express it — she was that vision with which all the faithful are re- warded. Eyes! Melting! Wonderful! And once she looked right at me. " ••Of course she did, you handsome dog, " said Walters, " how could she help it? " • ' And form, " continued Hal with enthusiasm, • ' there was not a sharp line in her body ' s contour — her whole figure suggested that ' old divine suppleness and strength ' . " " The female form, " declaimed Walters, the W ' liil maniac, with ferver. " A divine nim- 224 bus exhales from it from head to foot; it attracts with fierce undeniable attraction, ' and so forth; at least Walt said so. " " Yum, vum, " smacked one, while the whole bunch made sounds with the their lips as if they ware eating sweet, juicy fruit. Hal was by this time frothing at the mouth, but when things quieted down, he be- gan again where he left off. " But the thing of it was. she looked at me, and there was a look in her eyes as if she were about to recognize an old friend. And then she looked again and smi ' ed. I thought she was smiling at the old gentleman — " You ' re a liar, " broke in Walters, " you thought nothing of the sort. " " As I was about to sav when interrupted bv that asinine bray, " continued Hal, with a withering look at Walters, " I thought she was smiling at the old gentleman, and I turned quickly to him, but his face was sober as could be. I then decided it was a straight bid, and I was never particularly backward in such matters. She came straight on back and sat down two seats in front of us. I turned to the old gentleman and asked him if he saw that. ' What? ' said he. That angel ' said I. Oh, ' said lie, the young lady who has just seated herself. ' ' I should sav so, ' said 1 in disgust, is there any one else in the car? ' " " The old gentleman smiled rather curiously at my enthusiasm. ' ' And she smiled at me, ' I continued, ' and I ' m not the fellow to let a bid like that go by. vShe ' s a perfect dream. I tell you I never saw anything like her. ' 1 was thoroughly excited. ' Well, what you going to do about it, ' said he. Well, you just watch me, ' said I, chuckling gleefully. " I got up and staggered as gracefully as possible (we were running like the dickens) down to the water cooler, half conscious that she was thinking as she looked at me that my shoulders were square and my head high. I got a drink and started back. She looked up at me, as I thought she would. " " Now how could she help it? poor thing! " whimpered Walters. " Dry up, " demanded Hal. " I came on down the aisle, and when opposite her, stopped and offered her a late magazine with which I had provided myself. Xo, she was tired of reading. ' Of talking, too, ' I ventured. ' No, mother, who was in the front car, was not very talkative this after- noon. ' Now consider for a moment the information she conveyed in these short sentences. Tired of reading — wanted to talk — manunii in the front car. ' asn ' t that enough for most any smitten idiot? I slid into the vacant seat beside her without more ado. . s 1 did so, she glanced backward meaningly. .She seemed, in fad, to ask a c|uestion and get an answer. I looked aroimd quickly. There was a middle-aged woman, seemingly a Dago, paring an apple for a troublesome youngster over in the other aisle. Also a country-looking youth devouring a paper-baek novel. Immediately back, in the seat between ns and the old gentle- man, a commercial traveler snoozed and snored. It could have been none of these that she looked at. Mien I turned around, of course my former traveling companion was watching us. In view of my conversation with him on parting, this was natural. He smiled at me approvingly. ' Toward whom could that glance have been directed? ' I asked mvsclf. But this soon ceased bothering me. as the damsel really consented to talk. Vou may have heard chain lightning mentioned in connection with quickness, but 1 tell you she was . Her color rose as she got enthusiastic about anything, and there was something doing in m caidiac region. Fellows, she was a live proposition, if there e er.was one. And you didn ' t have to pick your subjects. She could talk about anything. Traveled! Why she was just back from a European tour, and she could tell all about fifty places not set down in the guide book. Well, to cut the whole thing short, if she had just put me in her little satchel and carried me olT. 1 would now be satisfied. Don ' t think 1 wouldn ' t. I could nestle down in there among her hair pins and visiting cards and loose change with all the grace in the world, and be happy. " " But now to the catastrophe. Steady me, boys, it must be told. The two hours we talked didn ' t seem two minutes. We reached here at six o ' clock. 1 hadn ' t noticed that the train was standing at the station, but it was. " " Helen, " said a voice above me strangely familiar, " we change cars here. " " I looked up and saw mv former traveling companion. " ' ' All right, jatlui . ' She dwelt with undue emphasis on the ' father, ' I thought, and rising without another word this devilish maiden gave me the merry ha, ha, and the two pushed their way down the aisle. " " I shriveled up and worked myself down into a crease in the seat cushion. The last thing 1 saw was a big W. H. 1 " . ' on the end of the old gentleman ' s grip. And then it occurred to my bewildered consciousness that I had failed by any artifice to get at the maiden ' s name. ' Commences with ■■ I " " I murmured to myself. ' The - ran the car in on the siding and the por ter dusted me out of the seat, and swept me out into the cold, cold world. The wind blew me about for a while, but I finally pulled myself together, picked myself up. and here 1 am — what ' s left of me. " " Which is all about as interesting a lie as I ' m capable of after a hard tiij), " concluded Hal. " Now you arc a liar. " said Walters. " That tale has the waiiiitli and iiitijnacy of ex- perience about it. Vou may fool the rest of tliese fellows into believing thai (ni can make up a lie like that, but you can ' t fool me. " " And it ' s strange, " interposed Fleming mildly, " that my sister, who passed through here this afternoon with the gtjvernor and mother, should have told me the same tale while we were waiting for the f)tlier train, only from the lady ' s point of view, and described Hal to a gnat ' s bristle. " 226 The Upstart. r OME IN, FELLOWS, " invited Rand. " I ' ve just been waiting for you. Here are B chairs. Moore, take the rocker. " And Rand carefully closed the door before - ' seating himself. The visitors grouped themselves in the half dozen or so chairs, and waited. " I understand you are the executive connittee of the Jefferson Literary Society. " Upon perceiving a nod of assent from his visitors, he continued ' " You fellows wish to know of course what I want to confer with you abou t, and I will begin by telling you that I am no longer a member o " The Madison Society; my resignation has been tendered and accepted. " " The devil it has! " exclaimed Moore. " Yes. I am therefore foot-loose so far as political ties are concerned. .Vow, to the point; we all know, that in the election which is about to take place, the Madison has a fine chance for success ; they have been running the political affairs of Jackson College for a year or two. I come to you with a plan whereby you can elect a Jefferson n ' an as president of the Students ' Association. To show you that I am sincere, I will recount ' o you how I happened to resign. " " Rand ' s tone was low and eager, and the Jefferson men, in an attitude of alertnes«, leaned nearer to him. " It all came up because some of the fellows bore me a grudge, " confided the ex-Madison- ian. " When we weie making up the ticket, some of the younger men attempted to foist oft ' that young upstait Lawrence on us for chief place. Russell, that senior who has already held eveiy office except the highest, was stuck in also. My friends urged my name. The first bal- lot we took gave me twenty-one votes, and each oi the other men twenty. That was a fair in- dication that the members of the Madison considered me WLrthy to head the ticket : but through chicanery, Russell, the senioi, withdrew in favor of Lawrence, and n ade a brave speech. He ' s fond of posing, anyway, you know. All he could mention in praise of Lawience was that he was a popular man and would draw votes among both bov and girls. Russell does not admire Lawrence, and I just know it was a conspiracy against me. Well, Lawrence was elected. I don ' t mind being defeated, but I never could bear to be beaten by lies and deceit. Young Lawrence meanwhile took all the glory to himself, and looked as if he believed all Russell said about him. Lawrence is just charmed, ravished, wild, at the thought of presiding at the Final Reception. He doesn ' t appreciate the duties or dignitv of the I ' residencv of the Students ' As- sociation; it is the " ex-officio final ball president " — that is the j)rospect that delights him. I imagine he almost faints with rapture whenever he thinks of leading the grand march with his sweet-heart. But right there is wlure the weakness of his paity lies. ' La ri.ii.-r- and Russell 228 are in love with the same girl. Their friendship accordingly is not Pythian 1 believe we can split the party. " To sav that the executive committee was by this time thoioughly excili ' d. were putting it mildly. The men were in a fevei. An opportunity was about to present itsi ' lf foi the JetTerson Societv, after a lapse of thiee vears. to regain its prestige. Rand ' s tones thrilled ihvv as nui- sic. " Go on, " thev urged. " Their partv would have split of itsell. I think, if Russell had not conspired with Law- rence. At any rate, this is the situation at present. The two men are enemies, and each has his quota of friends. Yet the Madison Society has pledged itself to suppor. Lawrence. At the same time, you and I both know that the deciding vote in this race will be cast by voters who are in neither societv. Of these outside voters, a majority would unciuestionably support Rus- sell, were he nominated. Furthermore, Russell is going to nominate this upstart: and, though he be himself nominated, he will inevitably drag in young Lawrence ' s name. Now, we will nominate Russell, split their vote just half in two, and run in our own candidate. " " Had vou thought about what to do in case Russell withdiaws his name " inquired -Moore. " ' ell, yes. To withdraw would be to acknowledge that he is involved in a political scheme; and to Russell, fond of popularity as he is, such an avowal would be painful. I be- lieve, however, as a safeguard, we might, in the beginning, pass a motion forbidding any nomi nee to withdraw. Now, fellows, " and Rand ' s voice assumed its softest tone, " I also have some friends who will support the Madison ticket, unless — er — " " We will put vou at the head of out ticket, " interrupted Moore, " that will fi.v them all right. ' " Well, " replied Rand, " considering the fact that your expectations are not sanguine, and that mv name would attract a not inconsiderable number of Tuch-needed votes, you might bring my name before the Jeffersonian Literary Society, and let them vote on me fot their chief candidate and for admission to your membership: let one ballot decide both. " Rand ' s visitors put their heads together for a few seconds. " Well, " spoke up Moore, " I am chairman of this committee, and we have power to select whom we please foi this candi • dacv. We aie all agreed to support you. Of course vou will be welcomed into the Jefferson. Vou shall head the Jefferson ticket. I will nominate you myself. " " All right, fellows, here ' s my hand on it, " replied Rand. " And I will nominate ixussell. so the populace will regard me as magnanimous " The men smiled. After some further discussion, thev took their lea x ' . Election nrorning saw Jackson College very much excited. The Presidency of the Stu- dents ' Association, with the attached presidency of the final leciption, was the highest office in the gift of the student-body. That morning, the corridors were thronged with men in little knots and groups. As you passed, you could catch a sly side-glance from under their hat brims, and could hear the low hum of eager conspirators. As twelve o ' clock approached, reinforce- ments, picked up in the laboratories and elsewhere, began to arrive, and one gleaning commit- tee came up proudly escorting some freshmen, prizes they had found on the streets down town. Russell, the battle scarred veteran, was on hand, greeting his friends in his lofty, suave manner. Rand ' s friends were on hand, too; they weri- in earnest; thev were stimulated to the 229 height of actiNily by the chance of success. Moreover, Ihey felt their confidence mount as the hour drew near. Rand was known to quite a considerable number of men, who, without being intimate, were on easy terms with him. Many of these expressed satisfaction when they learn- ed he was in the race. The Jeflfersonians had all their forces at play, and hoped for victory so strongly that already, by anticipation, they tasted its sweets. Lawrence was in company of one or two friends, and though he attempted to conceal his excitement, his restlessness showed he was nervous. The older Madisonians felt confident of winning, but he had a thousand fears. Besides, the prospect of winning excited him as much as fear of being defeated. His youthful blood was heated by the prospect of proving to the girl of his choice that there was something in him. He felt that his senior colleague, Russell, stood higher in the ladv ' s favor than he, but hoped his coming election would give him some advantage over the m.aturer Russell. As usual, the Madison agitators gathered at the left entrance to the auditorium, and al- lowed their satisfaction to overflow in form of yells and cheers. The Jefferson party rallied at the right entance. The auditorium slowly filled with young women and young men, and finally with a last veil, the leaders themselves swarmed in. The President of the Association strode down the aisle, movmted the rostrum, and rapping on his desk, cried, ' " The house will please come to order. " Immediatelv, a prominent Jefferson member arose and moved that no nominee be per- mitted to withdraw his name. The motion was seconded, and cries of " Question! Question! " were heard. Rand stood up then, and to mislead his opponents, objected to the motion on the ground that it was unnecessary. Another Jefferson man, however, spoke at some length in favor of the motion, and the house began to grow restless. Russell knew that a majority of the young ladies would vote the Madison ticket ; but he also knew that girls hate parliamentarv discussions ; and he feared that this motion had been introduced to tire the girls out and in- duce them to go home. He arose, accordingly, and expressed himself as decidedly in favor of the motion. The motion carried. ' ' I will entertain nominations for the Presidency of the Students ' Association, " thundered the chair. ' Mr. President, " called Moore. " I rise to nominate one who, though he has never held high office, yet has gained the respect, confidence, and good-will of the student body. Xot onlv has he by kindness to all, gained the friendship of the individual ; but he has also through hard work, rendered more than one service to his Alma Mater, as, for instance, when he won, a year ago, the debate against Munroe Universitv. I have the honor to bring before vou the name of Mr. Janies Rand. " A wave of applause swept over the assemi)ly. Rand arose, and was greeted bv another voile)- of clapping. " Mr. President. " he com menced in his most oratorical strain. " Seldom does it fall to the lot of a student to distinguish himself by nominating one who has achieved honor in the field of athletics, of societv, or scho- lastic attainments, but most of all in politics. This gentleman has served as president of his Literary Society, as u ' anager of the Literary Magazine, as one of the editors of the .1 »);»(; . And now it gives me great pleasure to present as candidate once more, Mr. W ' m. Russell. " This was a stab in the back. The Madisonians had the uneasy sensation of a man in a 230 boat when he feels it strike a rock. Thev knew Russell would inevitalily nominate Lawrence. Thev knew Russell ' s name had been mentioned in the most unfavorable manner possible. Meanwhile the clapping continued. Lawrence stirred in his seat, glanced around, and beheld his sweet-heart gazing at his rival and clapping like mad. He sprang to his feet. " Mr. President. " he called, " and fellow- students. We all know Mr. Russell, and we all respect him. I merely mention that if we wish to show our confidence in him, this is our last opportunity. I second his nomination. I move also that nominations be closed and that we proceed with the balloting. " At the mention of Russell ' s name, there was a murmur of applause, and as the Madiso- nians realized The Upstart ' s sacrifice, this murmur, augmented by stamping, cheering, whistling, swelled into such a wild roar that the auditorium seemed more like a maelstrom than the gathering place of a few hundred harmless students. The Madisonians had no intentions of taking anv more chances. As soon as the chair- man could obtain order, thev seconded the motion. Russell attempted to arise and make demur, but was snatched back into his seat. " All in favor of the motion, " announced the President, " will make it known by saying aye. " A lustv " Ave " vibrated from the throats of nearlv ever -bodv. " The motion carries, " declared the piesident, " and we will pioceed with the voting. All in favor of Mr. Rand, make it known by saying aye. " Another strong chorus of ayes responded. " All in favor of Mr. Russell, n ake it known by a similai sign. " Another burst of " ayes " resounded, and there were cries of " vole by division! By di- vision 1 ' ' " I will appoint eight men to count the votes, and the vote will be cast by division of the house, " announced the chairman; and he named the eight men. Rand ' s stronghold was on the right, and thither his suppoiters flocked. Those who up- held Russell surged to the left and by cheers and cries attempted to influence the undecided voters to follow. The neutrals remained in the middle. Each newcomer, on right or left, was greeted by handshakes and joyful exclamations. A company of young ladies who had been delayed in coming, showed face at the entrance, and the rival factions, each endeavoring to attract them, cheered and cheered again until the auditorium fairly rang. Meanwhile the committee of counters slowly advanced, row by row. until at last, they finished counting and collected in a group to bend over their statistics and to " check up " their results. The chairman made his report to the presiding officer, and the latter declared : " Mr. Rand, three hundred and ten; Mr. Russell, four hundred and sevcnleeii. .Mr. I us- scll will be our next president. " — Lewis i . Ihbh. 231 % SUNSET. The waning light streamed through the lonely pines In mellow rays ; danced in each icy nook And crevice of the road ; made whisp ' ring vines, All stiff with hoar-frost, sparkle as they shook. The regal holly thrust a long arm out, Resplendent in her garli of glist ' ning green Reheved by crimson gauds, as if to flout The sober pines, and their rude garb bemean. I ' ' ;ir down the frozen bayou shrilled a bird In plaintive accents to a wand ' ring mate. The mournful note so sadly sweet I heard Hath echoed in my lonely soul of late.

" Mother: — " I cannot see you, you are dark against the cloud. I cannot see you for the cloud. I cannot see the cloud for you. " Daughter: — " Is nothing clear? " Mother: — " Nothing.

When I was at the goslin age Mv mental apparatus Conceived a notion (since dispnn ' ed Of mv great mental status. At school I won much envied grades. My teachers grew prophetic : " When he gets to a college, then This studious ascetic, " Bv his devotion to his books And coldness toward society, Will lay in stocks of learning that Will win him notoriety. " Alas for teachers ! And alas For me, poor fool, to listen To an ambition that enticed Where learning ' s prize did glisten Like diamonds given in popcorn bags: All shine, no worth that ' s solid. For I went studying on and on. Toward all but text books, stolid. But once in springtime, when 1 chanced In flowered paths to dally, I passed a maiden ; at her glanced: My heart could iie er rally.

I called her lovely, sweet, fine, dear; Plum, honey, dumpling, cherry; And other such things that appear In Love ' s vocabulary. She hinted that 1 wasn ' t It. And that she wouldn ' t choose me. I wouldn ' t go at that; but vowed She ' d find it hard to lose me. I begged " Don ' t throw me down ker- thump. But let me down right easy!

In Afric ' s woods, mid swamps and sticks Where tiger prowls and giraffe kicks, Sore vexed by gnats and flies and ticks, There dwelt a giant seven foot six. He ramped aiound thru leafy lanes. He blotched the land with bloody stains — They fed His Majesty with pains On ostrich eggs and human brains. In that same land there dwelt a maid Who often thru the forest strayed Blooming, fresh and unafraid, Delighting up the streams to wade. And when this maid the giant saw, A burning yearning filled his maw — Says he, " Here ' s flesh without a flaw! Av Gany. I could eat her raw!

The Heart-Crusher. The Heart-Crusher, of which a perspective view is here shown, is an excellent machine for breaking hearts for anv purpose — or for no purpose. HGA is a frame which supports the other parts. At HK there is a motor hidden from view. The power is communicated from this mo ' or to the parts FE and GE. The hearts are usually crushed by these parts alone, but when one of unusual hardness is to be broken, AO is also used. No large fragments can escape. This insures thorough and even crushing of the material. This device is not patented, but has been in use since ihe days of Ivve. It has been improved by each succeeding generation until a high degree of perfection has been reached. The machines of varying power are in use in all parts of the world. Sev eral of a rather large capacity are now operating in the University of Texas. It has been found that they vary in capacity from one heart a month to se -eral a week; and, on rare occasions, a capacitv of several hearts a dav has liet ii reached. This does not, however, strain the machinery. — Mac Kcrbev. 258 TO A BOTTLE. ' Tis very strange that you and I Together cannot pull; For you are full when I am dry And dry when I am full. O. K. S.

Dear I ' aiher: — Please excuse the shortness of this letter, but I am very hus -. Vou know I wroce to you beforet hat the examinations are coming right awav, and I ' ll have if) study at least sixteen hours a day 10 keep up the good class standing I have made. Tell mother not to worr -; she knows I have a strong constitution. Last night at two o ' clock the electric lights went out, and I had to walk half a mile to borrow a candle to read by. We had an ac- cident, for, although we have to borrow candles pretty often in this city, we are not as used to them as we might be. While my room-mate was studying philosophy, he nodded into the candle and burned off some of his hair. Good-by, give my love to Mother and the girls. Vour dutiful son, John. Austin ' , Tkx. s, March 12, 1904. My Hear Hohbu: — Vou ought a been with me. Do you remember that man Thomp- son, who used to brag to us about his ability as a poker plaver. I was with him from 10 to 4 last night. You know that little room at Pat ' s where the T. T. T. ' s was founded? Well, I was by myself, walking along the campus to Weilbachcr ' s for a plate of chile, when Thrmpson struck me, and in ited nie to join him and a coujile of friends in a li tie sociable. I didn ' t know any of them ery well, but I thought I could li e if I ren:embered youi lessons. We butted into Pat ' s, and settled down in that little r( m behind the stove. I had only seven doll rs on me, and I wanted to take the little one to the show to-night, so I determined to handle my chips like Fulton does his change. Thompson sat across from m,e, Blue on mv left and a guy from Swanee named Grandluad on my right. Wluu I saw they were infants. I jjro- posed penny ante, two-bit limit. 262 Well, there we were at eleven o ' clock. The thing passed off vvell; we had a rake-off to keep Pat in good humor, and nothing happened until about half past three. As I said before, I felt ashamed of myself and just couldn ' t take the money — it was too easy. Thompson opened his hand as if it were a Chinese fan, counted his tlakes after every deal, swallowed hard if he had over two pair, and spit into his vest-pocket when he lost with a little heart flush. He be- gan to talk ap if he had lived on lemon juice for a week. He had lost money, temper and po- liteness, and then, think of it, he accused me of trying to learn his method of playing because I held a post-mortem ovei his discards. That made me mad, and I kept my mouth shut and thought things. Pat ' s clock struck fom-. and the roosters at the Woman ' s Building began to crow. I was deep in mv chair, trying to give the impression that I had lost interest. Grandhead had the deal; he gave m.e three nines, a six, and some other card. As Thompson looked at his hand, he didn ' t niove. From that 1 knew he had nothing. I opened under the guns and dis- caided one. Thompson stayed, and a great idea seemed to strike him. He backed me a cjuar- ter and asked leave to take the limit cfT. " BkilT " ! I thought. " All right, " I said, " it ' s al- most tirre to go, let ' s take it otT. " They agreed and 1 met his raise. He stood pat, and I caught ar.other dtar little six. 1 didn ' t want to scare him so I bet fifty cents. He raised me a dollai. I Icckcd scared to death, and raised only two-bits, so as to give him a chance to spread himself. He thought he had m.e and bet four dollars. I mict it, and raised only a dol- lar. He threw his hand into the spitcon, broke a good cigar, and cashed in $0.20. Yours, John. P. S. — The little one savs she knows a man vou knew in ' irginia. ,, Austin, Te.x. s, March 15, 1904.

He followed still the light that led Him ever on, w-ith blinded eyes, Through Learning ' s deepest mysteries ; Xaught else he saw-, nor cared to see ; Saw not that other things there be. Which, clear to the soft eyes of Love. Cold-hearted Learning knows not of. For Learning ' s gaze is upward turned. As if the common earth she scorned ; But Love looks down to man ' s domain With sympathy for human pain. Xaught else he saw, nor cared to see, Until he came to ' Varsity, When that fair light, which guided him, Midst myriad other lights grew dim. At length its leading passed away. For so doth Learning oft betray Her worshippers. He followed then, First this, then that, then this again; Farthest from what he envied most. His former steadfast purpose lost ; Still seeking rest, but finding none, Wearied with all he gazed upon. We see him next, with downcast mien, Called to appear before the dean ; Then, gathered in the regent ' s room, The Faculty pronounced his doom; But yet, ere his departure thence, He cried with bitterest el()(|uence: " I scorn lo waste sweet life in hated schools, Amidst the arrogance of shallow fools ; For day bv day incessantly they pass. And throng the halls, or fill the crowded class ; Thev fill their sponge-like brain with Kantian lore ; Descartes thev read — a name unluard before Complacent in their intellectual power, They are become his equals in an hour. A sager fool sits at his desk on high. Dispensing second-hand philosophy. Or ending age-long questions with a word — ' Here Plato was at fault, there Hegel erred. ' And others with a microscope are placed Where all a sunny afternoon they waste. Mapping the nervous system of a gnat, Or vivisecting some rebellious cat Who pavs the penalty of ignorance And learns too late that ' science must advance. ' What means increase of knowledge, save it be To bring decrease of human misery ? But here, if one is weaker than the rest. At once the brute is shamelessly confest. So live the cattle on the Western plain ; If one is wounded, struck with deathly pain, Thev run, thev bellow in superior scorn, Menace their wounded mate with lowered horn , Till comes the cowboy on his horse apace. Stern vengeance written on his sunburnt face ; Straight through the craven herd his course he bends. With sound like gun-shot his long whi]) de- scends. And n ' ceklv now those tyrants go their way With stripes upon their backs for m any a day. But here, if one is weaker than the rest, Who shall rebuke tin- taunts and jeers ex- ])ressed ? Wild sliall strike down t1ie holy hands that smite The erring friend, too frail to stand upright ? I go to seek once more the W ' oods of Pine ; There all day long the peaceful sun shall shine, There all the night the peaceful stars shall rise. And from their wondrous pageants in the skies ; ( )r, lest I should grow weary of much peace, 268 Let me f o forth where the great winds increase .Miirnuirs amid the liranehes of ilie trees; Till all the bending forest cries aliud, )r wlien a deeper harmony takes form And from the North is blown the flving cloud. In the great symphonies of night and storm. Thus let me live from arts of man retired, I shall desire no more than Nature has, And be alone bv Nature ' s art inspired ; And scarce shall count the seasons as they pass ; No paintings see save those by Nature drawn I shall take pride in things of low degree, Upon the changing clouds of crimson dawn ; And find true greatness in simplicity.

What means it that we say farewell to-day, Borne outward by the strong, relentless years, W ' hh lips which would that bitter word unsav, And eyes that scarce can hide their childish tears? Is it that we are far from sound and sight Of those dead days entombed within the past — Shall we not see again these well-known walls, High-built in heaven ' s light. And climb these worn steps, when we come at last To watch the alien crowds within our halls? Is it that with false hope our souls sliall vearn For sweet renewal of these magic hours ' Twould be as if some exile might return To breathe the fragrance of his native tlowers. Then would he find the painted glamour .gone. And his no more what once he called his own ; Strange would the mountains rise, and cold would seem The fire of early dawn. More happy he on seas and shores unknown Than thus awakened from his one- fair dream! But why make present pain of pleasures past, And spend our tears anew for olden jovs — The great world lies before us, and we cast .Such thoughts aside like childhood ' s broken tovs, — The great world, swung far out in emjjtv space.

When we, ecUtoriaUy, were strug- ghng with underdone crania in the pubHc schools, we always took occasion, at e ery Teachers ' Institute, to remark that " the instructor of youth stood ' in loco parentis ' . " Xow, as a matter of fact, we didn ' t believe that Our job was out in the wilds, and a little Latin was awe in- spiring. But here we are again in these classic and cuspidored corridors; and we think some- times we hear some Professor say softly to himself; I am in loco parentis. I guess I ' d better go wax paternal. " How foolish were we to think that mere students could run anything! The University is not maintained for us. Professors, when they need recreation, hear their classes and choke the last breath of life out of ancient lectures ; but when it comes to hard work for earning their salaries, they bravelv jump into the breach and run student affairs. How self-sacrificing! August soporific personages, imported at great expense for their " scholarly attainments, " are glad to dabble their cultured feet in the waters of student affairs; and muddy confusion is the result. vShall we not, if this ia ( Hi; ry»; continues, prove ourselves jilial? Is it nou then our duty to help in carrving professional burdens? Many of us would like to revise a lecture that we have heard so often; many of us would be glad to visit affiliated schools. There are scores of ways in which we could relieve our " Professor Papas, " while they were busy with our annual or our athletic teams, or our students ' association, or our oratorical contests. Fellow students, let us not shirk! Think of a poor, weary professoi who draws twenty-five thousand pennies a year for lolling around on his shoulder blades in the Chair of Something or Other, but who is willing, aye anxious, to manage any little student enterprise. Should we not emulate this no- ble example, and volunteer at times to plague classes from the rostrum; " Reciprocity be our motto!

But how have changed. Then it was that the graduates of the long established schools held sway; to-day the man from Texas carries all before him. The people are realizing m.ore and more everv dav the futilitv of going out of the State for the same instruction that mav be obtained in this branch of our great University. With us it is a matter of pride, that whenever one of our men enters a competitive examination for a position, either in the U. S. sen ' ice or in a Hospital service the chances are even that he will be victorious even thovrgh the other contestants are m.en from colleges whose standards were set and whose reputations were made while we were in our infancy. To cite special instances would be an insult to the intelligence of the reader. ' henever for anv reason, fancied or real, our m.en find themselves com.pelled to enter an other University, they find that it is with ease that they are able to keep up with or even to lead the classes they have entered. The School of Pharm.acy is in line with the progress made 1) I Ik vSch()f)l of Medicine. It was established eleven years ago, and in the strug gle for existence ably seconded the efforts of the School of Medicine in sur mounting the obstacles as they arose. To-day it stands not onlv first amon;..; the Schools of Pharmacy of the State but also among the foremost of tin- vSoulh. The School of Nursing, under a most able Tnanagen:ent, has reached an enviable position, which it ])n)n:ises to maintain. The class of Gradualt- Nurses increases vearly, aid notwithstanding the fact that n:anv of tlu ' young ladies never finish their courses there but begin tlu ir chosen professic )ii without graduation, seems to find employment for all. The doctors of Texas fully realize the value of a course of training in John Sealy Hospital. The increasing irun-ber of young ladies who enter iiil(] the ardirous life of a trained nurse is a slight indication of the esteem in which the people of the State hold the School. So far as the numbers are concerned the present gradirating Class heads the list with nine members. Since last year we have lost by resignation Dr. . lkn J. S.uitli. I ' rofessor of Pathology, and one of the ablest teachers, and a gentleman honored arrd respected bv all those s i fortu 276 nate as to be associated with him. To say that we all miss him would be stating it very ' mildlv However we aie fortunate in having Dr A. E. Thayer to take his place, and he promises to create in our hearts an esteem equal to that of his predecessor. And j-et a few words about the FAITHFUL. Sixty brand new Freshmen and half as many Junior Pharmacy students is the record for new men. And a promising one, too, is this Fresh crowd. ' ith true Freshman zeal they assembled at the Opening Exercises, and were ridiculed with the usual upper classman ardor. They asked the usual questions and " bit " at the same timewom jokes, diligently searching the Pharmacopaea for that historic remedv which does not come from the dried juice of the poppy. Tluv had of course to be put next to the mysteries of that chamber of Horrors, the Dissecting room. This last was followed bv at least one night of terror, as the fragments of bodies crawled out the vats and with hideous ingenuitv readjusted themselves. Wrapped in their oiled canvas robes thev proceeded to execute dances which to this day the Freshman never dares to think of unless there be two people and a light in the room. Even a stroll through the Pathological Museum did not tend to sweeten their slumbers. From the assemblage of wit and beauty each one chose a fair maid to share liis vSunday afternoon Sea a. promenade, never of course for a moment forgetting the prettv little girl he left behind him. Of the upper classmen the earnest faces tell of newer, stronger resolutions to conquer in the struggle, to remain unswerving throughout the conquest the - have begun, to reach the goal their fondest hopes have pictured. As we look backwards there are a few things we have to regret. Our faults are perhaps mote of omission than of commission. If we have wasted anv of our valuable time, mav we be forgiven on the plea that the life of a Medical student is so hard, and a slight reaction must cccasionally occur. As you look forward can you imagine a brighter picture than fortv voung men and women full of high hope and ambition entering the battle of life, fullv jirepared for the struggle. It is a true saying that " A good wine needs no " but we offer you this volume of the Cactus with the expressed hope that it may please you and entertain you. ' e have tried our best, with what results you shall be tlie judge. If we have pleased von we are happv at gaining our end. If not, we beg to plead that we are Medical students and not journalists, as our onlv excuse. 277 FACULTY AND OFFICERS OF THE MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. John Fannin Younc, Paixe.

History of the Senior Class TI X the first month of the thhd year of the reign of Theodore the Strenuous the class of ' 04 spake unto me saying: " Write the mighty deeds which we have done while we were sojouiners in a strange land. " And after manv books weie opened, and the chief men were consulted the following history was found to be true. in the year 1900, three score and three souls of us gathered together unto a certain school of Medicine in a city named Galveston, hard by the seashore — each one of us being soie afraid and thinking within himself, " I shall learn the signs and mysteries of Medicine; " and we spoke of the matter to the Chief Man of the school. ■ ., ' vi Now it came to pass that on a certain day all the wise men of the school, with much people from the City and many who were being taught weie called together, and the wise men talked much, and the chief of them lifted up his voice and said: " Young men, the eyes of Texas are upon you. " At this our hearts did leap foi joy; howbeit. others spake evil of us to our faces and cried aloud as we passed by them, " FRESH! " After that day the wise men opened their mouths and spake of the elements in all the eaith and of the beasts of the fields and of the fowls of the air and of the fishes of the sea and creeping things and of how fearfully and wonderfully we were made. Now, there were those whose heads could not abide so much wisdom and they said, " Take us back to our fathers ' houses wheie theie is plenty and to spare. " And when they had made an end of talking the wise men being crafty said : — " On a certain day we will ask questions of you] to see how well you have kept the words we have spoken unto you. " And it came to pass that many did swear grievously saying, " Alas! the wise man hath ' busted ' me, ' So the eight months were ended and we rested from all our labois, and at the fullness of time only one score, ten and six of us gathered unto the wise men. Then did the wise men speak unto us of all manner of animals, showing us their most inward parts, and told us how they lived, moved and had tlieii being, telling us that we lived even as the animals. Also, they began to tell and to show lunv all manner of diseases were caused, and the quantity of wMsdom exceeded that of the lirsi year. Again the wise men did ask questions of us and some could not frame to give the right answers. .Vnd tlu ' days of our labors in a strange land were ended and we lesled. K« And it came to pass that while we rested some said, " Behold! onder be green pastures and still waters, we will go hence; " so when we were again called together only one scoie and nine were left. Now the wise men began to s|)cak unto us of the laiut ' and llir hall, the deaf and the dumb, the blind and those possessed of devils and the sick and afflicted, showing them to us and teaching us what might be done foi them, insomuch that those jxjssessed of devils did laugh and call us " Docs " when they saw us. Again the wise men asked questions, and some could not lemembei all things told them, and they went away. A ' hen we were again called together there weie but one score and three, and our hcaits were sore for those who were absent. And the vise men taught us as before and brought many of the infirm before us to see what we would name their infirmities, and we weie brought face to face with all mannei of loathsome disease insomuch that we feared not the sights of it nor of the dead. And now the wise men say unto us: — " Of making many books there is no end. and much study is a weariness of flesh; abide with us et a little while and ye shall do the works foi which ye have been prepared. " Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: — We that are left ha e foiighl a good fight, we have kept the faith, we have finished the course: henceforth we know that our bodies shall be clothed in black raiment, a curiously wrought cap shall be placed upon our heads and a scroll shall be placed in our hands at the last day. A ' ith best wishes for our teachers, our sister nurses, our junioi friends, our sophomore critics, and freshman admirers oui pharmacy brethren, and with no regrets for the past and hope and smiles fo. " the future we bid vou good-bve. — .4. A. C , Historian. 2S7 JUNIOIJ CLA88. OFFICERS. FIRST TERM. J. T. Oliver Piestdtnt W. R. Lyon : Vice-President 1 S. LiTTLEjOHN Sec ' y and Treasurer Ci. J .

I HROUDED in the mists of lonely n:editation, wrajJl in the ecstacies of fond recollec- tions, I pause to chronicle the shifting scenes and principal events in the life-history of our Sophomore Class. Considering the number of its casual happenings, and remembering the weight of its scientific advances, I concede it more than the task of an Alias Socrates and fein would I cast it to another. But patriotism, love, respect and haughtv pride in and foi its ac- complishments hid me proceed. But little iKote than a year ago we were called the " Fresh Seventy-five, " and not with- out a jeer from our upper classrren; the fresh now call us " Wise Fool, " but " Ye whose hearts are young and simple, " we have not forgotten. As an exception, the Sophomore Class is one not divided into clans, factions or fraterni- ties, but maintaining a brotherhood within its ow-n organization : a class who passed, without exception, in Therapeutics: a class not hampeied by social functions or dominated by feminine whims: but physically, mentally and politically, shoulder to shoulder and maintaining a mas- culine gender, the Sophomore Class with une bounding rush has trodden down the bulwarks of obscurity, solved the m.ost difficult problems, and placed its m.embers among the politically honored of the Medical Department. In summing up we would not forget the sincerity with which we outlined the ghostly Amoeba oi our Freshman course, or noted the fine flocculent precipitates which should have been in our Physiological Chemistry. Nor with our imaginations so trained can we fail to see our air castles of phenom.enal success, mateiiahze, and though intoxicated with such lofty ideals, we cannot forget a few individuals who have figured to make us famous. Possessing a Hobson, who has nevei been kissed, the Sophomore Class stands out in bold relief from its predecessors of the past A teaspoonful of Tincture of Antimony hypodermatically will eme- tize a dog, kill a cat, and bus! anything but a Sophomore. From the first, seat number filty has been reserved for science, justice, and reason, and since " All Gaul is divided into three parts " and gall stones are considered pathological, this seat is, still occupied by a member of the Sophomore Class. The story of the isolated faithful tew-, who plead with John to no avail, and then with soothing words came out through the transom of the door, was never told to Doctor vSmith except to the tune of " Bye and Bve. " Balaam ' s Ass recognized an Angel, but when he joined the Sophomore Class he failed (and not w ithout regret), to rememiber that the provost was m t a doctoi. Liscoverics have been num eroiis, but among the most Phenomenal may be mentioned the fact, that the supporting frame-work of the bodv consists of feet. A compensatory hyper- trophy taking place in the liver and a new crucial anaston ' osis consisting of the femur, the Umbihcus and foram.en magnum. Though reduced in number to fortv-seveu, the class upon returning in ( )ct()ber, 190, , w-ere thrown into the Physiological frog pond where they learned to croak tmdei the swift pace of a new Pathological lecturer and murmur foi nitrogenf)tis ef|uilibrium in the n-hirl ]X)ols of anatomical structure. Nor have they since been soothed by the administratiou of Bacteriologi- cal bug juice, anaesthetized by groans from a surgical operating table, or rocked to sleep by the tympanitic notes from a third finger pleximeter. A carboxvl groii]) exams., and the So- phomore Class of 1904 has passed into history. 294 ffymsJxtiSli aBet 295 ROLL OF C LASS OF ' OT. Arnold, i;. M. Aubrey, J. 1 " . Aves, C. M. Bahn, C. A.

IN comparing the class rolls of our Junior and Senior year, the reader will no doubt be svir- prised to learn that it has been reduced from thirty Juniors to just eleven Seniors. The historian is unable to account for this ; some have hinted that it was due to the destructive influence of the Boll Weevil the past year — we believe that it was because we were taught too much in our Junior year, and we are supported in such belief by the fact that all of those who have tried have successfully passed the Pharmaceutical Boards, and are now holding responsible positions in reputable drug houses, while perhaps a few were disappointed at not finding Pharmacy child ' s play and have chosen more easy professions. For those who did not deem it worth their time to return and finish the course, we are full of svmpathy, for they can- not realize what great knowledge has been denied them. On Oct. 25th, we plunged headlong into Organic Chemistry and were taught the graphic formula nomenclature and method of making and using such compounds as methylethyalamyl- isopropyldibutylbenzolparaamidoacetophenateofethyl. We were also taught that the various Stereoisomerisms that existed in many organic compounds were due to the corkscrew arrange- of the carbon atoms in the molecule. The common, or commercial, names of these compounds were not overlooked. For instance we were taught that glucose was put on the market under the simple name of " glucose. " We were also taught that by careful synthesis one could begin, say with a small quantity of sawdust, and manufacture almost anything desired. Inspired by this, Mack began with one of the common carbohydrates obtained from the juices of plant-- and actually succeeded in making an excellent sample of taffy to which he treated the class. To Jena in research, fell the honor of discovering the formula of methylene blue. We were taught that care and patience were essential in our vork — this we regarded, and ere long we weie able to take a suspected sample from the drug market and determine its per- centage of puiity with rapiditv and wonderful accuracy. We were surprised to learn that adul- teration was not so common as one might suj pose, for some samples assayed as much as 144.6 % pure. Now, when we go forth upon the face of the earth to roll pills for the good of suffering humanity, we will again be heard from, but where? 302 rriniiuriife .€y®. 3 5 OFFICERS OF JUNIOR PHARMACY CLASS.

" We otitmimbered the kitten crowd by commencing with fourteen, l)nt the Fates have juggled until our number has gradually disappeared, so at our goal we count only nine. In June, ' 03, we pause to view our first year ' s labor, and shall we congratulate our- selves? Truly the way has been strentious, but light and joy has intermingled everywhere. In the sw-addling days of Juniordom, the responsibilities of the Senior Head Nurse were put on us, and the trying duties of the " Special " were assigned to each and all. Undoubtedly this philoso])hy ran thru the heart oi many a girl at the end of a laborious day — " It is easy to smile when life flows along like a song; But the one worth while, Is the one who can smile When things go dead wrong. " When this training is history, memory-views will come often of the jiicturesque crowd, a la kiniona, gathered in one room around a Xmas box, hear the echo of light, ridiculous tasts, merrv songs and happy laughter.

The Students ' Council can not be said to have a separate and special history, for it has so well lived up to the end for which it was established, that its historv is siinijlv the l)lcnding of the histories of each individual member of the school. ' e have a book store in charge of Mr. Geo. C. Xix. which has as iir,ual been CDiiducted in a pleasing and most satisfactory manner. Aside from the book store, another subject of importance is the issuing of the Medical Department of the C. CTis, and the present staff promises to uphold the high standard obtained by the otTicers of previous years. Another matter which is of direct interest to the student bo(l - is the issuing of TnE Medical, the mouthy publication of the .Medical l)e])artineiil. The .Students ' Council stands for something more. It is llie tie that binds together the irembers of the school, the tie in which all classes are forgotten and the good of the student body is sought. 323 Grinds.

Potter University Hall- In June, 1S9S, University Hall was foi mall v presented to the University of Texas liy Mr. George W, Biackenridge, of San Antonio. This generous gift is the result of an interest the donoi; has in young women who study medicine in the Medical Department of the University of Te ;as. The purpose of the Hall is to furnish lady students with rooms at moderate rates. University Hall is a commodious thiee-storied brick building one block from the Medical College, s nd opposite to the John vSealy Hospital. It is provided with comfortable sitting- rooms, livmg-iooms and bath-rooms. It is heated bv steam and lighted by electricity The flining room and kitchen are neatly and adequate ' y furnished. The students resid- ing at the Hall have organized themselves into a dining-club, known as the Universitv Hall Club. Bv this means they are able to board themselves at cost. . s the number of students of medicine and pharmacy is still small, the room-rent is not sufficient to meet the expenses of maintaining the large building .Mr Hrackenridge has gener- ously endowed the Hall to assist it in becoming self-supporting, which lu- hopes it will do at the end of several vears. Board and room can be furnished at seventeen or eighteen dollars monthly. Also of interest are the two scholarships endowed by the Woman ' s Club of San Antonio- These are known as the Isabella H. Brackenridge Scholaiship and the San Antonio Woman ' s Club .Scholarship. They are valued respectively at two hundred and forty and two hundred dollars. Thev are awarded to women above the Freshman year who have attained the neces- sarv general averages of ijroliciency in tlieii studies. These scholarshijjs are not liniiu-d to students from Texas. ,28 I ' Mi i:i:siTy hall riEii s. 329 An Appeal. SINCE the ; Iedical Department was added to the University, some twelve years ago, it has been made to bear the brunt of adverse criticism and opposition, this opposition being not merely an attack on the Medical Department, but an underhanded blow at all forms of higher education as well. The Opposition, thus finding in the " far-a-way " School at Galveston a vulnerable spot in the Educational System of the State, makes its attacks here in the attempt to beat down the entire Educational Policy of the State, striking at the whole Policy through the weakest branch, as it were, and thus weakening the whole. Thev ofTer many rea ' -ons for their opposition, and many causes for complaint, among them the statement that the State should not enter the field of professional education. Again thev say that the School should never have been established till there was an adequate fund for its maintenance. These two arguments they turn in full force upon the Medical Department alone. They oppose us in every way, and by cutting off as much as possible the appropriations, they furnish an obstacle for every plan for the benefit of the School. Thus they hope to overthrow the Educational Policy of Texas. Quite a noble aim they have. uur plan is not to defend or to apologise for the plan that established the School. That needs [no apology or defense, since its own worth is sufficient defense for the School. ' e would rather demonstrate the utter futility of opposition to the progress of the School now so well established. There is no opposition that can prevent the knowledge of the State School ' s superiority gaining ground in the minds of the People. That will appear evident in the standard of practitioners of the State a few years hence, even though the opposition find stronger grounds of prejudice than those they now hold. The work in the past has been more than satisfactory to the most ardent lover of the School. Calling forth every year a goodly number of well-trained practitioners, it is thus raising the standard of the Profession year by year. It aided to demonstrate the need for better laws for the Practice of Medicine than the old, and now fulfilled by the establishment of a State Board of Examiners. Here, too, the graduates have demonstrated their superiority over those of shorter course schools. Thus it has been proven that Medicine can be well taught here, and therefore the opposition can find no grounds on which to attack the course. There- fore their grounds are not practical, but theoretical, and by no means well taken. They attack the fact that there were no adequate funds for the maintenance of the . " school when it was established, and a debt nmst needs be contracted. They do propose that 330 we shall get enough futuls to keep the School on a firm basis, and cut everv appropriation to this end. They oppose every iniprovemenl for the school and attack everv plan for its betterment, hoping in the end to effect the overthiow We get very little of the public funds for the reason that the opposition is on hand to cut that little as low as thev possiblv can. Thus they cripple the various departments by depriving them of funds, but thev cannot keep them from keeping their work up to the standard set, [and preparing for an inevitable change of opinion. The time must come when the worth of the State School will be apparent, and the people will recognize the fact that the facilities must be improved or the School will be at a standstill. The experimental stage has long been passed, and the School must now begin to forge to the front as a Medical Center, not merely as a place for Undergraduate instruction, but as one in which Medicine is improved more and more. Not merelv to teach that which others have taken upon themselves to prove, but to begin to search for that which at this time has not yet been learned Other fields remain open for work, and to maintain its footing this School must take up its burden of this work. Medicine does not stand still, and a College must either advance or fall. It cannot take a place and hold it, remaining an undergraduate school alone. - It must take up the various branches of Medical Research and in this way contribute its quota to the Medical lore, the undergraduate work furnishing a foundaticn for greater things vet to come. It must not be thought that the Course of instruction will be allowed to i)e over- shadowed by the higher work. On the contrary, it will remain the ultimate purpose of the School to train the young man to become a practical physician, the higher work being] onlv added for the furtherance of this end. What facts learned in the Post Graduate course could then be added to the course of instruction, and, in accord with the time-honored Oath of Hip- pocrates, would be given to the world. « This is not a selfish aim. We do udI ask I hat we be allowed to benefit ourselves alone, but that we be allowed to try to contribute something to the World ' s knowledge of the means by which to combat disease and death. Our work is not for the benefit of the School, l)ul for the benefit of the profession at large. There are other laboratories of research in the Stale. but as yet no means for one in that, the noblest in the professions. It is not an extravagant request that we make in this paper, but one warranted by the past work of the School. The work as place of undergraduate tiaining is a sufficient guarantee of the ability of the manage- ment to carry on a higher grade of work, were the means ofi ' ered. ,The purpose is sufiiciently noble and the ability of the School is guaranteed b - the jxast, then why not continue to advance. ' Why should this branch be forced to stand while the rest goes on? These aims are too ' noble ' thus{to]lighlly be]trampled under foot. There must be a nobler end to such a beginning. Texas will not allow her .School to be so easilv outslripi)ed I)v its competitors. Education for the Practice of .Medicine is a noble work. 33 ' .Mfdicinc is by no means a complete Science. Many are the ills of man as yet imper- fectly understood. .Manv are the remedies for disease as yet unsought and unfound. Yes, might it not be said that many are the lives lost for the same reason? Only a few months since, the State was thrown into a state of quarantine because of a plague. Ought it to be said that it makes no provision by which it can protect its citizens against such an event? The field is large and Texas has a .Medical School that must soon enter it. Let us then make the time of waiting as short as possible. -F. J. G. 332 THE YOUNG MEN ' S DlNlNCi CLl 15. OFFICERvS. Horace T.

Muursund. , Y HEX the students of the Medical Department of The University of Texas returned to Galveston, at the beginning of the session of 1903 1904 they found themselves face to face w ' th a situation. University Hall, which had been tendered them as a din- ing hall for several years past, and which they had managed so successfully, was no longer available, but was to be occupied by the young lady students of medicine and pharmacy. What was to be done? The question which presented itself to everyone was: How can I get good board, and at a reasonable cost? A good number of students began to take their meals wilh .Mrs. Malldv, who had con- structed a frame building which would accommodate from eighty to ninety students. This boarding place was continued for two months when it was announced that there was no moni in boarding students for fifteen dollars a month, and that it would be closed. An attempt was now made by the students, either to construct a hall, or rent one, and thus get matters again under their own management. There was but little interest manifested and the matter was dropjied. The students scattered to llu- f(;ur winds and for one month were at the mercy of the (Talveston boarding Iiouse trust, ' { " his was enough. It was now real- ized that something must be done. There was a meeting of the students, and it was decided to rent the building constructed hv .Mrs. Malloy which should be managed by the students themselves. This was done and an executive committee, whose duties should be to buy supplies, and a membership conunittee to maintain order, were appointed, and having employed the necessary help wc took possession January isl, 1904. and are now getting good board at twelve dollars a month. — 11 ' T.
