E had been standing near the main entrance of the old assembly room. in doubt as to which way to go. Our presence must have been noticed in the office, for in a few moments, a well-built man, whose hair and beard were beginning to turn gray, approached us through the library. “That is my name. Come with me to the office,” he said kindly, in response to our inquiry. President Albee spoke to us concerning the school, the examination and boarding places. He even gave us a simple plan of the city, drawn by his own band. “No, we furnish paper and pencils for the examination. You need not bring anything except a clear head.” Uttered in that characteristic way of his, these words of the President gave encouragement to a country lad of sixteen, who had just had his first ride on a railway train, and who hail never seen such a line face before. Nor has he seen many like it since. The President had made a deep impression upon me. I felt that if only he were within reach, no harm could come to me. In my boyish mind he was the school, and my faith in him was unbounded. No doubt there are thousands of boys and girls who have had the same experience. The President’s solicitude for his pupils extended into all details of their lives. Hike all great teachers he shared their joys and sorrows. Ilis personal interest in the individual student was profoundly sympathetic. None will remember this better than those whom he visited in the sick-room, and those whom other misfortunes overtook. On such occasions his great heart renewed hope and inspired confidence. Having attended to all the minute details of administrative work during the earlier period of the existence of the school, President Albee persisted in continuing to do so to the last. It seems he did not sufficiently realize the impossibility of operating the large school of later years on the former basis. It was commendable zeal on his part to make out personal programmes for students at the opening of each quarter, and to grant excuses, even for permission to leave school an hour earlier in order to get ready for a train; but it was a lavish expenditure of energy, and must have been one of the chief causes which led to his premature decline. President Albee wanted to know every student, and he succeeded marvelously well. He was an excellent judge of men, and had a genius for remembering names and faces! It was probably his fear of not being able to keep up this detailed personal knowledge that prevented him from delegating to members of his faculty many administrative duties which they could have performed with efficiency, and which would have left him freer to devote his energy to the larger problems of the school. Hut he was decidedly patriarchal in his attitude towards both students and faculty; and. quite in accordance with the traditions of the family household, only the house father could perform the sacra. Among the many ways in which President Albee represented models for teachers, there is none which stands out more prominently than his loyalty to the faculty. Members of the instructional force had the President’s 6unqualified support in their dealings with students. If a teacher’s work was deficient, the students never found it out through the President. In fact, occasional shortcomings in individual members of the faculty were screened by the President with religous care. The centrifugal forces in President Albec’s school never came into play very much. He was bound to maintain authority. His school represented an institutional unit with which every student was obliged to come iu contact. This I consider one of the greatest elements of strength in President Albee’s work. Kvery country boy or girl was made to feel at home in the school. The world which had suddenly become so much bigger for them still had a definite place for everyone. That place was somewhere within the domain of the personal influence of the President, at least indirectly; and directly under the wings of some guardian in the faculty. Country pupils were peculiarly susceptible to this kind of treatment, and usually manifested generous appreciation. When the high school graduates, with their greater insight into affairs and men, first began to appear, the two classes of students presented certain incompatible elements; and the greater love which the President bore the former did not always tend to reconcile the latter. President Albee’s attitude towards young men and women who had a weakness for independent and resolute action was shaped largely, perhaps, by his more intense love of the general trait of the rural element. His heart was in the district school, and he always expressed feelingly “the interest I feel in my friends who were once with us and of us, and I trust will always be of us, even when they are not with us.” The watchword of of President Albee’s pedagogical theory was inspiration ; and the inspiration which comes from close contact with instructors rather than that which grows out of a thorough knowledge of organized material, and from the consciousness of progress. Partly for this reason. j erhaps, was he slow to recognize what in these days is called research work. He desired a teacher “to rouse expression of thought in others and secure that expression not only as a test of knowledge but as a progressive element for the evolution of power.” “Rudimentary stimulation, and not a complete exposition for the sake of imparting mere information.” and engendering “the organizing attitude of mind” should stand among the aims of a teacher in a class-room. Readers of these lines will probably not be surprised to find me writing about the school, the teachers, and the profession when I have been asked to write concerning President Albec. The President’s life cannot be separated from these. His school was the highest expression of his character and life. His devotion to the school and the profession had all the characteristics of a religious sentiment. On holidays even he could be found walking to and fro through the corridors and rooms of the school buildings. To him these places were sacred. To those who knew him well they will always remain sacred. The work and influence of President Albee will ever stand as the finest memorial of his earnest and dignified manhood, of his lovable and reverent nature and of his implicit faith in the gospel of hard work. II. B. Mkykr, University oj Wisconsin. 7Lydon W. '-Briggs. YI)ON W. BRIGGS was born in Lancaster, Erie County, New York, May 16, 1840. lie attended an academy in that place from the age of eight to twelve years. He came with the family to Wisconsin in 1852. They settled in Kenosha county, where he attended district school in winter and worked on the farm in summer. In the fall of 1857 he entered the Kenosha High School. In 1862, in the darkest days of war between the states, he enlisted in the Seventh Wisconsin Battery, Hying Artillery, and served until the troops were mustered out in 1865. In that year he was made Superintendent of Kenosha county schools without opjK sition, and in 1867 was appointed principal of a ward school in Racine. Here was begun the acquaintance between Mr. Briggs and President Albee that developed into a close and lifelong friendship. In 1871, President Albee took charge of the Oshkosh Normal School, and a year later Mr. Briggs was made principal of the high school at Green Bay. He continued in charge of this school for live years, and conducted it with marked success. In 1877, he left Green Bay to take charge of the high school in Manitowoc. In 1878, at the end of one year’s service, he resigned his position there to accept a call to the Oshkosh Normal School. This call was made by President Albee to the friend and co-worker of former years with the certainty that the service rendered would be loyal and efficient. There arc hundreds, even thousands, who can testify that during the twenty years of this relationship, no man, no institution, ever had a more devoted assistant: The loyalty, the efficiency, the untiring, self-sacrificing character of this service made it indispensable to the recipients. Such service can never be bought and paid for; it can only be appreciated. That it was appreciated by him to whom it was personally rendered, was attested by many marks, and by a letter to the alumni sent from a full heart and a weary hand in the midst of sickness that found no cure. That it is appreciated by the Board of Normal School Regents they have shown in the most substantial manner in the year just past. For twenty-one years, Mr. Briggs has gone in and out among us, not only doing well the duties to which he was appointed, but seeing others, “not nominated in the bond”, and performing them in the spirit of service without reference to the reward. But the reward is in the character of the work, and follows as the harvest follows the seed-time. That Mr. Briggs may reap abundantly is the sincere wish of those who have worked with him in the institution that he has always served so unselfishly. 9r President R. H. Halsey.cRufus H. Halsey, PRESIDENT of the Oshkosh State Normal School, was born in Blooming Grove, Orange County, N. Y., in 1856. 11 is parents removed to Brooklyn in 1858, where he spent his boyhood, receiving his education in the public schools. At that time, however, a young man could not be litted for college in the public schools of Brooklyn, so in 1871, Mr. Halsey entered upon a preparatory course of study in the Adelphic Academy. In 1875 he entered Williams College, graduating from that institution in the class of 77. Immediately thereafter he began his career as a teacher. The first year was spent at Newtonville, near Albany, N. Y., and the next five years as an instructor in the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute. In 1885, Mr. Halsey was invited to assume the principalship of the Oshkosh High School, which position had previously been held by Mr. Charles B. Gilbert. He accepted the position and remained in Oshkosh thirteen years. During the last five years of that term he was Superintendent of the Oshkosh city schools as well as principal of the high school. Under his able administration many improvements were made in the system of city schools. Kindergartens were established and the teaching force largely increased in number and efficiency. In 18%, the School Board of Binghamton, N. Y.. sought the services of Mr. Halsey as superintendent of schools in that city, and in September of that year he removed to the East. The citizens of Oshkosh realized their loss more and more during the next two years, and when the position of president of the Normal School became vacant, it was the wish of all who appreciated his power and integrity that he be recalled to Oshkosh. The faculty of the Oshkosh school were equally desirous that he should succeed President Albee. with whom he bad long been on terms of honored and intimate friendship. At a meeting of the Board of Regents, held December 1, 1898, Mr. Halsey was elected to the presidency of the Oshkosh school, and entered upon the duties of his position January 51, 1899. 11r 1 The Faculty.Prof. J. E. Lough. DR. LOUGH was born in Baton, Ohio. In 18 1 he was graduated from Miami University with honors in Philosophy. He taught two years in the public schools of Baton, Ohio, and in ’93 entered Harvard University. In ’94 he was graduated from Harvard College with the degree A. B. In ’95 he received the degree A. M., and in '98 Ph. I). The subject of his doctor thesis was, “The Physiological Basis of Intensity of Sensations.” In '93-95 he was assistant in the Phschological Laboratory of Harvard. He was instructor in the School of Experimental Psychology at Harvard from '95 to '98, also instructor in Psychology in Radcliffe College in ’94-'98. Instructor of Experimental Psychology in Wellesley College in ’97-’98. In the Harvard Summer School of ’96, '97 and '98 he was one of the instructors of Psychology. I)r. Lough is a member of the American Psychological Association. In '96 he read a paper before the Association upon “The Intensity of Sensations” and in '98 upon “The Correlation of Breathing with Mental Change.” In the fall of '98 he was elected to the chair of Psychology at the Normal. We feel fortunate in securing the services of Dr. Lough. He has already gained the confidence and respect of the entire school as a teacher, and as a man he is highly esteemed by everybody. 13Prof. Frank A. Manny. PROFESSOR MANNY is a native of Illinois, and received his school training in public and private schools of Indiana and Illinois. He began teaching in a country school in Indiana, but later entered the freight department of the Louisville, New Albany Chicago railway, in which work he remained over four years. lie was also book-keeper for the Michigan Salt Association, and in the early days of the natural gas boom kept the books of the Delaware County Land Company. During these years he kept his hand in school work by teaching in night schools: also by acting as tutor for private classes. After this he took a course at the University of-Michigan. receiving the degree of Bachelor of Arts. After graduation, he was employed at the university as general secretary of the Students’ Christian Association. He was next principal of the high school at Moline, Illinois. Here he organized a number of lines of work in what might be called high school extension system, so that as large a number of students from factories received instruction as there were pupils in the day school. From Moline he returned to the University of Michigan to take the degree of master of arts. After this, he became assistant in pedagogy in the University of Chicago, under Professor Dewey. This gave him an opportunity for a study of the experimental school at the university, also of the evening schools and kindergartens of the city. Then he became supervising principal at Indianapolis, in charge of about sixty teachers and twenty-five hundred children. This year he was to have had charge of all grammar schools in that city, but resigned to become director of observation and method in the Oshkosh Normal School. 14cMembers of the Faculty. May B.

Let us, we pray thee, Oh thou greatest of kings of the earth, gather up the crumbs of wisdom which drop from thy table of learning !

Teach us this, we pray you, and through the many days to come we will sing thy praises, condone thy offenses, laugh at thy jokes, and do anything else but pay thy debts. 171 William E. Morton . S.

VANDE WALKER “Time glides with undiscovered haste The future but a length behind the past.” THIS we as seniors now fully realize as, saddened with thoughts of parting, we stand ready to bid farewell to our alma mater. We cannot leave you, schoolmates, without a bit of our history ; for in emulation of our achievements, your future success will be assured. With eiglity-five in our ranks, we leave you strong in number but stronger in spirit, with ages varying from the indefiniteness of some forty years to the simplicity of eighteen summers. On the subject of personality and beauty modesty bids us be silent. Five have since early childhood trod the Normal paths, while two-thirds of our number, being high school graduates, look back to but two short years of study, whilst the remainder, coming from the district school, have many a time been weighed in the balance of quarterly examinations and have been found not-wanting. From all corners of the state, from all counties, have we assembled. Iowa and Indiana have sent representatives to swell our number. Our characteristics are varied; yes, as varied as our names, which include everything from a Turkish potentate (Calef) to lenten fish (Sauerhering). We live on general principles with the exception, possibly, of our class-day orator who prefers to deal with a particular rather than a general notion; and that particular—the front seat near the center aisle of the ladies' study. Nor are we as Seniors proud and haughty, as evidence of which note the partiality of six of our number for Junior companionship. Our capabilities are indescribable. Agitators, orators, musicians and athletes have won for us renown. What visions of foot-ball do not the names (ireen and Senn conjure! How ‘our one girl’ electrified the world with her oratory ! Has not our hair stood upon end, when Mr. Jones,discussing the cap and gown, has in classmeeting, with the eloquence of a Burke and the determination of a Patrick Henry, declared that he would not wear petticoats? What Junior 25maiden can, with queenly dignity, equal Miss Ellsworth in entertaining in the ladies study from four to live. Mr. Bassett can do anything from giving a normal yell or stealing a cat, to expounding the theories of Pythagoras. Even our staid and dignified president, who alone in classmeeting can curb unruly spirits, has given proof of new possibilities within him, when in an eloquent address he speaks of “love-sick maidens pillowing their bosoms on their lovers' heads.” As we have climbed the Hill of knowledge we have realized a few things, namely, that sulphuric acid is not always to be treated with sublime indifference, that academy students may know more than seniors on the subject of hygienic cooking ; that it is sometimes more profitable to know the names of all the human nerves than to realize that one has such. But ignorance of these facts has not disturbed the equanimity of our spirits. We have in the past learned many new and valuable lessons, and have had many experiences. The last class of the old and the first class of the new administration, we hope that we have lived well, and that the juniors will be proud to follow in the footsteps of the class which our alma mater sends forth in ninety-nine. 26 Junior Class History. t President A. 11. COLE Vice President GEORGIA CARTER Secretary ALICE CASEY Treasurer JOHN ANDREWS NOTHING would be a simpler and more delightful task than to sing the praises of this most accomplished class, the class of 1900, were it not for the limited space allotted. For justly to put their virtues into words would require unnumbered volumes. We are Juniors. Ah, how much that means is known only to those who have been there before. We have passed through the verdant field of the Freshman, and plodded wearily under the heavy burden of knowledge of the Sophomore or high school graduate. We have now begun the process of unlearning what we have previously learned, and we rejoice that we arc rapidly being relieved of so cumbersome a load. The great stride which took us so far ahead of all other classes undoubtedly originated back in those early days of our existence as Juniors, when frequent gatherings were held in the Gym. for the binding together of our souls in harmony, and the promotion of public enterprise. Here we were fired with an enthusiasm and zeal, which has since been perpetually kept burning by a living Cole. In no undertaking arc the Juniors found lacking. On the field as in the class room, the men of 1900 have been a host. In foot-ball, base-ball, oratory, debate, and drama they have led the way. In fact, “ Not to know them argues yourself unknown.” It is said, of all qualities, bravery is the one most admired in men. The bravery exhibited by the Juniors on one memorable night is not surpassed in heroic legend. When in the very midst of a social gathering, an apparition more horrible than was seen by Hamlet or Macbeth appeared to them. What did these brave Juniors, think you? Did they cry out in terror as did Macbeth, “Take any shape but that, and ray firm nerves shall never tremble ! ” No. As they are united by one powerful purpose, they were siezed with one common impulse to capture those ghosts. And they did. To us has beeii given the honor of bringing to a close the nineteen centuries that are past, and as we step forth into a new world of activity we we shall herald in the new-born the twentieth century. Let us carry with us the enthusiasm of these past years, and the hope of success in an unbounded opportunity. Mary M. Haydkn. £s The Junior Class. The Class of I90t. t 1‘rttidtmt G.J.

Strange as it may seem, though such multitudes of excellent things have been said about us, there are none which give a satisfactory account of our early history. However, we remember how we came to the Normal, and had the experiences that are common to Freshmen. The first year, which passed so quickly, was one of experience; but at last our bark was safely launched on peaceful waters. Then the days came when we could no longer play “Freshie,M and go according to the bent of our humor, unnoticed and uninterrupted. Alas ! we ourselves became teachers. If we departed from our dignity and took cur own wayward course we were confronted by a criticism ; our pupils met us at every turn, and we were obliged to be models for them. However, we made brave efforts, each one anxious that his work should be noted for its authenticity, which is indeed the very life and soul of (practice) teaching. Many times was the torch of science extinguished and rekindled. The glow of composition has not departed, and yet we have had to leave many places untouched which we fain would have altered. Some things may have been lacking, but the course was replete with professionals. We have improved every opportunity, and have been found as workers in every organization in the school. We may, with due rssj ect, attribute much of our reputation as a class to our worthy president, who, although he joined the ranks of the Juniors, has estiinably fulfilled his duties as our president. We have wisely discarded many a pithy tale and marvelous adventure, jealously maintaining the gravity and dignity of our class. We muse upon the past; it brightens the future which is before us. full of promise. 29The Elementary Class.A Freshman Is the freshest thing Of any irerm uj on the wing: And since he is so very nice We've put hint here upon the ice.

VOS1JURG Trtustirtr— LEO SCHUSMANX HE sure way to judge any literary society is to note the inlluence it has upon its members. Alumni Phoenicians have repeatedly testified that it was the Phoenix Society, more than any other school influence, which developed in them the faculties necessary to meet successfully the problems of the world. What is more beneficial to the young man or woman than such a training in parliamentary rules as can be gotten at the Phoenix business meetings? Here one mind comes directly in contact with other minds, and “ The mind of the scholar, if you would have it large and liberal, should come in contact with other minds.” The Phoenix is noted for its spirit of advancement and reform reforms that have made themselves manifest during the last year. Seldom has the Phoenix deviated from the path of faithful work, and never has she given up to the “slough of despond.” The unwavering loyalty and the tireless energy of the Phoenicians form the moral and educative stamina of the man of the world. Every year the Phoenix and Lyceum have an inter-society debate which is a contest for the bust of Lincoln. For three successive years the Phoenix has been successful in the contest. When the time came for choosing inter-state debators, in the Phoenix could be found able representatives for our school. In consequence of our marvelous record in debate, the school looked to the Phoenix for two representatives on the team. For leader, all eyes were turned to the man who was influential in winning the bust of Lincoln in 1898, Albert H. Schubert. One of the heroes of the Stevens Point and Oshkosh debate in 1898, John L. Jones, was chosen as the other representative It is the boast of the Phoenix that it was one of her members who was chosen as the secretary and treasurer of the Inter-State Oratorical Association, George V. Kelley. The Phoenicians have shown themselves able and competent Tenderers of classical plays. It was James K. Bailey who, though not a real barbarian, played the part of Ingomar the Barbarian so well. Although we did not get first in oratory this year, we have reason to be proud of the even and stable record of our Beckler, Schubert, and Miss Bridgman. Faculty and students alike laud their productions. The work of the Phoenix Society has always been, and we trust always will be, what our motto expresses, “Culture, not Show.” 41Lyceum Society♦ t PrftUtml— VINCENT BUCK Seeretury BELLE SCO EIKI.0 Treasurer-- II. K. BASSETT • Mon may conic aiul men may go." But our records shall stand forever. EVER before has the Lyceum been prouder to throw open its pages and give to the world its records from June. 18 18, to June, IS )'!. And well may we rejoice and give our glad tidings to our fellow students, fellow societies, and to the outside world. To those who do not know the Lyceum, we would say that it is a literary organization whose programs consist of debates on all questions, social, economic, and j»olitical, declamations, music, and recitations. Hut they arc not limited to these alone, for the mock trials are worthy of the court room, and the dramatic ability displayed in the presentation of Rip Van Winkle is worthy of the stage. We have had several speakers, different memoersof the faculty, and outsiders. Our programs have taken us away into Cuba, the heart of the Spanish-American war. For did not the same bugle-call which called our Wisconsin boys come to us? Did not the same chaplain. Rev. Smith, who did service in the late war, together with Colonel Horn of Sheboygan, and a Spanish interpreter, sit upon our platform ? Such programs have made our society an organization of strength, intellectually and socially. That the Lyceum ranks highest in oratory is an undisputed fact. The only Wisconsin orator who won first place in the inter-state contest came from the ranks of the Lyceum. The only woman who ever represented a Normal School in an Inter-Normal Contest received her training in the Lyceum. In the oratorical contest in which it was decided who should represent us at Stevens Point, both the first and second places were captured by the Lyceum. What a night that was ! Who could ever forget it! The Lyceum representatives did justice to themselves, to their society, and to their school. As "our one girl ” stood on the platform, speaking in “such electrical tones that made the cold shivers run down your back bones,” she thrilled all. Not only the Lyceum members, but the Phoenix people, and even the Phila-keans, who were then in their infancy, were proud of her. “Our one girl” belongs to the school, but it was in the Lyceum that she first gave evidence of her oratory. Side by side with the high standard of oratory, the sense of true manliness and good scholarship is cultivated. This year the Lyceum furnishes to the school both the Valedictorian and the Salutatorian. Mr. Stone and Miss Betnis prove to the school the truth of the motto of our society, “ We Sha| e Our Own Destiny.” In the Lyceum cooperation is encouraged. The privileges of one are the rights of all. To those who are here for the first time, and to those who are here but have not joined our ranks, the Lyceum extends a most cordial welcome.The Philakean Society. - IcPhilakean Society.

The Philakean Society JJ is a natural outgrowth of existing conditions. For a long time there had been a growing feeling that the existing societies were becoming too large to have efficient work done by all of their members. The opportunity of doing society work has not kept pace with the increasing members of the school. And so it happened that, in spite of the fascination of the fair ones who adorn the old society rooms, and the charms of the eloquence which swelled to a crescendo and cracked the chandeliers, certain male members were impelled (by a spirit of envy and malice) to form themselves into a new society. Nevertheless, the larger part of the membership of the Philakean consists of persons who were not members of either of the old societies. The society has held regular meetings from 7 to 0 every Saturday evening since the Christmas vacation. The meetings open and close with songs which were written for the society by one of its memliers. IJesides this and the excellent drill in parliamentary usages afforded in the business meetings, the program for each meeting consists of a debate, an oration, and impromptu speeches. Every member must appear on the program at least twice a quarter. Since the society is limited to thirty members, every member has the privilege of of speaking on each subject debated. Although at first its memliers were boycotted by the other societies, it is now recognized by faculty and students as a permanent society. Razzle ! dazzle! gavel ! gavel ! Hokey, jiokey, bah !

From thence radiate the thrilling and ennobling melodies and harmonies of the choruses from Gounod, Mozart, and other great composers. This is the Glee Club as the school is commonly acquainted with it. These regular rehearsals are of great value because of the facility and taste acquired by this acquaintance with the best productions. In the past, the club has only occasionally performed for public appreciation as it appeared on programmes from time to time. Not content with these uncertain opportunities to bless mankind, the club has decided to grant the general request for public rehearsals. These have been instituted with the intention of giving one each month. The first was held in the Auditorium on Friday afternoon, March 17. Miss Rollins, Professor Goddard, and the faculty quartette assisted. The large and appreciative audience proclaimed it a success, and a regular demand for these rehearsals is assured. On Friday evening, April 14, Mrs. Jessie L. Gaynor, of Chicago, gave a song recital in the Normal Auditorium under the auspices of the Glee Club. Mrs. Gaynor is known as one of the foremost composers of vocal music of the present time. She sang some of her own compositions in a charming manner and with delightful interpretation. The large number who were present felt highly favored by this opportunity to meet a charming woman and successful composer. The Glee Club is steadily rising above past achievements. Its members are reaping greater benefits, and the school is coming to appreciate it more as one of its indispensable institutions. This success is largely due to the wise direction and untiring energy of Miss Heward. The club, especially, feels that it owes much to her for her inspiring assistance. This appreciation will be shown bj giving a Glee Club excursion and boat ride in honor of Miss Heward. 40 C. W.

BASSETT ALONG title for a new and comparatively small organization, but the club is sometime to reach the breadth of its name. This club was organized for the purpose of bringing its members and the students of the school into closer acquaintance with some of the better works of art. Its aim is to place in the hands of the students framed copies of such works of art. There are now in the possession of the club thirty-five pictures which are loaned to the members each quarter. The student pays fifteen cents as a membership fee, and is entitled to all privileges of the club. It was thought bv those interested that if the students could obtain good pictures, and have them in their rooms a quarter at a time, the broader culture and refining influence would be an important factor in the student life, and the students' rooms would be made more homelike and attractive. Such has proven the case, though, owing to the limited number of pictures now in the possession of the club, the membership is necessarily limited. Among the pictures is an important group of twenty-four color sketches of the World's Columbian Exposition buildings and grounds. These are copies of paintings by the first American artists, and the Art Club considers itself fortunate in the possession of the edition, of which only a limited number were printed, and the stones were afterward destroyed. All the pictures are tastefully framed, and the students consider them valuable adjuncts in the decoration of their rooms. The students are indebted to Miss Magee and Professor Clow for the Art Club idea, also to Miss Magee for her valuable suggestions on picture study given during the latter part of the year. The club elects, the second and fourth quarters of the year, a president, vice-president, librarian, assistant librarian, and a secretary-treasurer. The Art Loan Club is one of the new institutions of the school, but one of the new ones which we feel will grow and in the future mean much to the student body. 48 Secretary. Oratorical (Association. PrttMtn! K. K. CLOW Vk -PmiJtMl- CUFF STONE Stcrttary- CAKLOTTA HKIDGMAN Tmturtr GRACE SaUKAN HE expectations of last year regarding oratorical work have been fully real zed in the interest and enthusiasm shown this year. The work has been better, and the benefits derived have been a boon to the whole school. As In former years, three preliminary contests and one final contest were held, in which Elizabeth Shepard took first prize, E. X. Chickering second, and J. E. Heckler third. Miss Shepard, the first lady who ever won first place in these contests, went, as representative of the school, to the State Inter-Normal Contest held at Stevens Point. At this contest she was given third place. Oratorical work forms one of the best elements of a student’s life. The habits formed of expressing thought in the clearest and most concise manner ; the pleasure found in looking deeply into the question, and the information gathered, aside from the mere work in hand ; the feeling that the subject is known and understood ; that something has been added to the writer which can never be taken away, form the keenest pleasure of work of this kind. The training given in speaking is another valuable element. “Thoughts without words are dead sounds,” says Max Muller, and in no way is a thought made more clear and forcible than to hear it well delivered by one whose heart and soul are in the subject. Good oratory is not the work of a moment. Let none enter who do not expect to work with deep thought, both in the subject to be presented, and in the world’s best literature. When the best efforts of a student are put into a work of this kind, when he feels that he has done his best, even if no honors come to him, lie can not but feel repaid for his work. 49Our 'Three Orators Elizabeth Shepard.

As this society is but in its infancy, it, of course, can not boast of the great men it has turned out, like they do in the Normal societies before they try to raise enough money to pay the janitor. But judging from the talent 51and enthusiasm possessed by many of its members, it is evident that the society will some day be able to point with pride to prominent men and women in all walks of life whose spirit was aroused and whose ambition was stimulated by their successful efforts, and the encouragement they received while members of the Normal Academy Literary Society. The meetings of the society are held every Friday evening in the Academy building. The society has at present ninety-five active members, so there is no trouble in securing a good program for each meeting. The programs consist of debates, music both vocal and instrumental, orations, declamations, and drill in parliamentary rules. The programs rendered are so entertaining that it has caused large numbers of Normalites to be present at each meeting, who heartily appreciate the efforts made and the work that is done by the members of this society. Among the prominent members of this society none have taken a more active part in the work done or contributed more to its success than Anton Jarstad. The society showed their appreciation of his efforts by choosing him their first president, an office which he held with honor to himself and and for the good of the society. When the society was first organized membership was restricted to the male sex, but the members being unable to withstand the pleadings of the gentler sex, they were admitted and given the same privileges enjoyed by the young men. There has been no cause to regret this concession made to them as they have proved themselves the equal of their brother members in all work done, besides casting a refining influence over the whole society. If a person wishes to spend a pleasant evening he should be present at one of the meetings of this society and listen to the eloquence of Jars ted or Bowen, the wit and humor of Monahan, the points of etiquette given by Misses Abbott and McDonnell, the decisions of Callahan, or the expounding of Roberts’ rules of order by Crain, and he will be satisfied that he enjoyed himself and will speak in glowing terms of the Normal Academy Literary Society. 524 The Orchestra.The cNprmal Orchestra.

The efforts of the organization were so highly appreciated last year ‘that the few remaining members decided to again organize, and the present orchestra was formed. By unanimous vote, Oeorge Senn was chosen leader, and Frank Young business manager. The orchestra meets every Saturday afternoon, and fills the old building with music of such a lively nature that even venerable books begin to show sign of a dancing mood, not to speak of restless feet aching for a waltz or a two-step. The music not only finds its way through the old halls, but also to the hearts of the members of the school and others who have come to hear what the Normal can produce. The aim of the members has been to develop by faithful practice the talents which each may possess ; and, though far from perfection, they have endeavored “ to lift better into best." 54The Geographical Round Table. •f Pru-hitmt EDWARD DEMPSEY Vkt-PrtnJtm!

We are not narrow-minded, for the subject of our theme is the world. We never over-judge ourselves, for we do not praise or give prizes. We never trespass on the grounds of our sister organizations, and get fired like Hagar out of Abraham's tent. We never have closed doors and leave the forsaken to wander without knowledge forever more. Our critic and treasurer is a man of the world, so our finances are sound, our business meetings to the point, and -ther items are taken care of in which are often the seeds of downfall. We have extolled some of our writers, faults we have without doubt, yet we are sure of all we say, for it is universally admitted as true that Geography is the basis of all knowledge, and Geography we have in an unlimited degree. 65 The Brou fling Club.The TZroVfinmg Club. ♦ PrstiJeul I.KANDO K. BROWN Strretarjr MILL IK A. Kt'EGG TIIIC Browning1 Club, in regard to numbers, is perhaps the smallest organization in school, the membership being limited to fifteen. But quality, not quantity, is the true Browning aim, and only those who wish to study the thoughts of the great master mind of Browning can be admitted. “ Food for reflection ” is what each member receives in bountiful measure. There is no lack of rich food, but when taken with a grain of common sense it proves both nourishing and highly stimulating. Not only as food for reflection, but as an inspiration, can these readings be considered. Karnest, serious thought always brings its reward, and such must ever be the attitude of a student of Browning. To such a seeker “Truths to others unrevealed ” are shown ; treasures of thought clothed in garments of choicest language become his heritage; human life in all its phases is rolled open before him. What musician can not appreciate his “Abt Voglcr,” the musician who built a palace of sweet sounds, so sweet, so beautiful, that he prayed it might never be destroyed ? To what artist has “Andrae del Sarto” not brought a message?” The beautiful, soulless pictures of the painter were but the creations of his own soulless life, made thus by his own weak deeds. Paracelsus, the aspiring, the defeated, the victorious, is truly a picture of human life which appeals to all mankind, being but a reproduction of the lives of thousands. In “ Pippa Passes,” life in all its simplicity, as lived by the little silk weaver, is j ortraycd, and yet how great was the influence of that life ! Trivial acts are not considered of no account, for “ The good is never unimportant.” “ A service ranks the same wih God ; With God. whose puppets best and worst Are we. there is no last nor first." These are but a few of the phases of life as depicted by Browning which the club has studied. His dramas were part of the work undertaken last fall, and proved well worthy of the efforts which were put forth to secure the best thoughts. The future only can reveal the results of this research, which must be such as will make the Oshkosh Normal School proud of this organization. 57■ HEN all are far from home on the good Thanksgiving Day.

Andrews ( Track) 00 The Athletic c lssociation IT is essential for those men and women who some day arc to become teachers, to possess, above all things, good health and a strong physique. To attain these there is no better way than to indulge in some form of athletics, for the promotion of which there is in this school an athletic association. Under its management come all the athletics of the school. It is an organization open to both men and women. Its most important function is the promotion of all field sports. In order that the work of the association may be successfully carried on it seeks the support of every member of the school, not alone for the association’s sake, but for the student’s own sake. Unfortunately this last school year the majority of students failed to grasp this opportunity. In fact many of them have forgot that there is such an organization in the school; forgot that it is their duty as students of the school to be interested in and support one of the best—if not the best—organizations in the school. Worse than this, there are some members of the association, even, who forget their duty to it. They are never seen at the meetings and take no interest in the association at all. This, indeed, is a sad state of affairs. It was not so last year; why should it be so this year? why so next year? Students of the Normal, you and you only can answer and say: “It should not be so; it will- not be so.” With you rests the future success of the athletic association, the track team ; the base ball team; the foot ball team. On you depends whether this school will be foremost in the field. It has done well in oratory. Can it not do even more in athletics? “The Quiver” asks, then, that there be a complete revival in the athletic association, and in all the athletic sports which come under its management. It advises that in the future there be less of “cramming" and more of genuine physical training, and hopes that the day is not far off when every student will be giving a little of his time to athletics. “The Quiver” hopes, too, that this new spirit in athletics that we all arc looking forward to, will be a medium for the development of a new school spirit, the kind of a spirit which tends to unite us all into one large body working harmoniously in the interests of the school. 67 Kobkkt Daum.Foot Flail ‘Team. ¥¥+ Manager John L.

Although but two games were won, the team worked hard, and all of the defeats may be attributed to two causes: (1) misjudgement in the choice of plays and (2) lack of team work. About the first, not much need be said, as everybody understands that wrong plays in wrong places arc certainly disastrous to any chances of winning: and that a certain strong play used at the right time may be the turning point in the whole game, and vice versa. In this respect foot ball resembles an army. The captain is the general. He directs this charge and that charge. He directs how each onslaught should be repelled. One mistake might mean the loss of the day. The lack of team work cost us many a yard and touchdown. How? The men did not run well in interference, or the man with the ball did not stick to his interference; and the opposition had no trouble in breaking up the intercrfence and catching the man with the ball. In line smashes the men did not get into every play and push from behind when it was necessary. The line “smasher” had to depend too much on his own strength. Time and time again we were stopped short because every man of the opposition were pushing hard, while about half of our men were trying to overcome them. The other half looked on. So much for the offense. On the defense, too, there was a lack of team work. The line “smashes” of the opponents were not met by enough men. Those men in the rush line who held the opening at which the play was directed were expected to do more work than by rights was their share. The ends were expected to break interference and catch the man with the ball. Nobody realized that it was the duty of each man to co-operate with every other man Thus in this whole matter of team work zee failed to have unity— co-operation. There was too much individual playing. Individualism is certainly all right in some games, but in foot ball it is out of its place. The prospects for a good team next year are bright. There is now good material in the school, and we expect more to come in from the high schools next September. In the past some of our best men have been high school graduates. There are no reasons, then, why we should not have a good team. Hard work and training, and a good coach, are three things that are quite essential. The first two are easily secured if there be a captain who can get the men interested. To get a good coach, however, is a different matter, and it means the expenditure of a large sum of money; but we will be amply paid in the end. and will never regret that we spent a large sum for a good coach. To get a good coach docs not not mean to get one here for two weeks. We must have one for at least a month—better, of course, for the whole season—but to hire a man for any period less than a month is folly. It was folly for us to waste our money last year on a man whom we kept two weeks—a period too short to accomplish much. The money might better have been spent on suitable equipments for the team.'Track Team. ¥¥¥ y inutgcr John B. Akdkkws Captain Gkohgk Sknn C. Ward A. Houghton W. Keefe P. Klumb A. Weipking • C. G.

Morgan 71Track Team. •f HE prospects for this year’s track team are very bright; and there is no reason why, with all the good material in the school for a team, we should not make a “A 1" showing, and break some of our last year's records. It is quite evident, however, from reports we have heard about the schools with whom we shall compete, that we will have a much harder time of it to win than last year, when we, without mercy, snowed our opponents under. Ripon, you see, is after a number of scalps which we are keeping under lock and key. She will put forth her best efforts to pry open the chest, but her efforts will be in vain ; and Stevens Point, although she got even with us on the gridiron for some of the scalps we got last year, does not, it seems, feel quite satisfied. She wants all she can get. and more, too. Stevens Point, therefore, will try her hardest to get this year’s field contest. All we can say is “ Let them try ! ” In either of the meets with these two schools we mean to demonstrate our power. We are sure of firsts and seconds in all of the runs. The pole vault- there is no question about that. Charles Ward, our pole vaulter, comes to us from the Oshkosh High School, where he has won in every contest. He holds the state championship of the inter-scholastic meet held at Madison every year. His record is ten feet and three inches, but we have enough faith in Ward to say that he c uld go a few inches higher if that were quite necessary. Por the juni| s we have men in whom we have faith, and for the shot put and hammer throw, men who have the muscle that can send either the shot or hammer beyond the best marks of the opponents by several feet—perhaps. Not only have we men who will represent us well this year, but we have men training now to represent us next year. We are making provisions for the future, so that next year we will not have to depend alone upon men who were victors the year before. 72Ba« Ball Team.Base Ball. •f Mamaffrr— W. KEEFE (ofitai T.

MILLER IN comparing- this year’s team with last year’s, we find a marked improvement, not only in the playing of the team, but in the good, hard, earnest work the fellows did to make the team a good one if such a thing were possible. Another thing worth mentioning is the increased interest which the school in general has taken in the welfare of the team. The students have attended the games in large numbers, and at all times have been ready to give their support with lungs, tin horns, and pocket-books. This is a good sign which is worthy of being noted in the one book of many books, “ The Quiver ” of ’99. It is, indeed, very encouraging to the athletic department, and we sincerely hope that this new spirit will continue to grow and play its part in next year’s athletics. At the outset we were inclined to poke fun at the team, and to say it wouldn’t amount to much. The boys heard of this, and they immediately began to show what was in them. By hard and earnest work they have been able to put up a clean game of base ball. When they demonstrated to the school that they were playing for all there was in it, they received the sup-jKirt of the school at once, as has been said before, and they have made a record of which no one can be ashamed. 74 Basket Ball. 75Bicycle Gub.e T wo of Our cAthletes. t George A.

Past the old, old-time assembly Where each day began in song. Memories come to me unbidden With their message now so dear. Memories that to me are welcome Growing more so every year. Tis the past that comes upon me Bringing back those days of yore. When I trod these halls as student With dear friends I’ll see no more. Yet I wander farther onward To the Auditorium. See the rostrum there before me Lighted up with noonday’s sun. Then the past with greater clearness Brings once more the life gone by. Then I see again the rostrum 'Tho a tear bedims my eye. Faces that to me are precious Are arranged in groups of old. While behind the desk familiar Is that face of noble mold. Is that face of inspiration That to all of us is dear. For we all have felt its brightness In one recent sojourn here. Once again in accents gentle Do I hear the voice of him. Who to us was almost parent. In his councils to us then. But the scene again is changing Grim Old Time has had full sway. He has rent the bond of union Sent each one upon his way. Gone the past, a llecting shadow That has left me here behind. Yet a shadow with a purpose With a mission most divine. From within the gloom and darkness Comes this message to each one. ’Tis a message bringing comfort From those lives that now arc done. Let vour lives be strong and manly Let your thoughts be pureand true. Let each word and thought and action Be as chaste as morning dew. Let each purpose live within you Raise you up to nobler skill. Till you’r the goal perfection. Then you’ve done the Fathers will. 79Pele and Her Dethronement. •f FAR away in the blue Pacific where the heat of the tropical sun is tempered by the refreshing- trades and where the surrounding seas are cooled by modified icy currents, lie the islands of Hawaii. A beautiful spot where one might with reason expect to find the people happy and at peace. On the contrary superstitious fear and terror reigned in the hearts of the people, restlessness possessed them and happiness seemed to have fled. Why was this? Pclc, the revengeful goddess of the volcano, had come to dwell among them and they feared an outburst of her anger at any moment. Pele with her six sisters and one brother had lived successively on Oahu, Molokai, in the crater of Halcakala on Maui and had now come to live in the crater of Kilauea. on Hawaii. The people told strange stories of how Pele and her followers played at draughts in the conical craters, how they danced to the music of the roaring flames and played in the fiery foam of the lava. Here, as on the other islands where she had made her home, she manifested her anger at some broken tabu by sending down upon the people streams of fiery lava. In order to appease her wrath, into the burning liquid the terrified natives threw their most precious possessions. Hogs, chickens, gin and the ohelo berries, sacred to Pele. were offered in great quantities. Even the bodies of their friends were sometimes offered with the hope that the spirit of the departed would intercede with the goddess in their behalf. Today, the restlessness born of fear and terror is gone. The native no longer offers the ohelo berries to Pele but he, as well as the eager tourist who climbs the slope for a view of the realm where the goddess once reigned supreme, finds them dainty appeasers of hunger and thirst. Why the change ? Just eighty years ago a company of Christian men and women came to these far-away islands to tell the Old Story for the first time to a benighted people. To tell of a God whose acts were prompted by a love for his people and not by anger, malice or a desire for revenge. Among those in whose hearts the Word had begun to take root was Kapiolani, chiefess of high rank. Her heart bled for her people enveloped 80in darkness and she longed that they, too, might step into the light as she had done. “There is no such oeing as Pele,” she said to her people, “and I will prove it to you.” Much against the wishes of her husband and many of her friends she decided to make the trip to the volcano. By order of the goddess Pele, it was tabu for any woman to ascend to the crater. Considering he hold which superstition had upon the natives, this was an act requiring a tremendous amount of moral courage and is almost without parallel. With her company of about eighty persons she made the journey of nearly one hundred fifty miles to the volcano, mostly on foot. Reaching the crater they descended over five hundred feet to the “Black Ledge.” There, within sight and hearing of the seething mass of lava. Kapiolani ate the sacred berries of Pele, and instead of an offering, threw in stones. Turning to her company she said, “I fear not Pele. Jehovah is my God. lie kindled these fires. If I perish by the anger of Pele, believe in her, but if not, then believe in my God.” The tabus of Pele had been broken, her abiding place had been desecrated and no harm had befallen the offender. The fires which consumed the offerings on the altar in response to Elijah's call, gave no more convincing proofs of the existence of the true God to the prophets of Baal than were given to these simple, fearful people of the non-existence of Pele by the power of the silence which followed Kapiolani’s defiant deed. Cora B. Albright. Kamchameha School for dirts, Honolulu, . . 81A Bit of Edinburgh. ORE than a hundred years ago I)r. Johnson named Edinburgh as “a city too well known to admit of description,’ and it is all the more true now, for since then the peasant-poet and prince of story tellers bewitched the heart of the world and the land of broom and of heather beckons to the lover of Burns and of Scott luring him to the haunts made sacred by their genius And so the reverent pilgrim who visits Caledonia “stern and wild” cannot quit its coast without a glimpse at least of Edinburgh, or Auld Reekie as the Scotch are fond of calling it because of the mists and fogs which hang like a vail between that fair city and William Winter says, that “the capital of Scotland is not only beautiful but eloquent," and the tourists must ever find it so, for as he passes from the Castles to Calton Hill, from Canongate to Princes street, from the Tolbooth to Dean Bridge, lips that have long been mute will speak to him. Every city has its High street and in the High street of Edinburgh Allan Ramsay once had his home and his bookshop, where he wrote “The Gentle Shepherd.” and though the place is now occupied by a barber, he does not deem it out of keeping with his calling to proclaim to the public the ancient and honorable lineage of his house. In the museum one finds many an interesting relic ranging from a well preserved stone which once had a place in the old wall built by the Romans, to the ring which Flora MacDonald gave to Bonnie Prince Charlie. An autograph letter of Burns will call you to itself once and again for it tells you of the impatience and the scorn which sometimes held that poetic spirit in their grip. Writing to a friend in Edinburgh he says he is on his little farm at the elbow of creation where nothing comes to any degree of perfection except canting and stupidity. While visiting the castle of Edinburgh you will stand in the room where James I of England was born. A small, mean room, dark and inconvenient with no suggestion of elegance, but you must remember that the first duty of a castle was to provide safety, and certainly this ancient stronghold did not fail in this particular. Quitting the castle you will perhaps go across the city to Holyrood Palace, attractive for being one time the home of Scotlands most beautifnl, ill-starred queen. Here you may look upon the portraits of all the nobility of Scotland, and as you gaze you think what ill-looking people they were, or else the artists have belied them all, and you pass them by with little the sun. 82interest till you reach a window with a deep embrasure where arc two portraits which at once arrest your attention, the one is Mary, Queen of Scots and the other John Knox, out-facing each other still; Mary Stuart radiantly beautiful, John Knox stern and immovable afraid of nothing but doing wrong. Vexed and angry as the Scotch once were with their lovely foreign queen, for foreign she was in all her tastes and desiresthey have forgotten all their bitterness and to-day she is the idol «f the people. Leaving the portrait gallery you will be conducted to Mary’s bedchamber, where the credulous believe the blood of Rizzio may still be seen upon the floor, and the fragment of an old quilt exhibited here is said to be a remnant of the one which once covered the queen, but the little Venetian mirror will give you more satisfaction than either of these: gazing into its time-dimmed surface you may see the long procession of all who have passed before its face. Conjuring with it is more profitable than searching for the blood of the poor Italian musician upon the ancient floor. Some day when there is a faint prospect of fair weather you will go up Calton Hill to get a finer view of the city, and out to the Firth of Fourth to see the most wonderful bridge in the world and that tantalizing Scotch mist will fling its dampness into your very face and blot out the bridge completely. Returning to the city you stroll down Frinces street because of its beauty and opulence, through Canongate for its squalor and poverty, into the church of St. Giles, for it has seen stirring times. Here John Knox preached and here Jennie Geddes threw her stool at a certain preacher because of the offensive doctrine which he uttered, and here the caution of the Scotch may be noted, for a little placard says: “ Probably the spot from which Jennie Geddes threw her stool.” Mark that word “probably” and put the whole notice beside the utterance of the sturdy Scotsman who said he would not admit that two and two make four, but he was willing to argue the matter But all these sights are set down in the guide book and you cannot miss them by any chance, and it is my purpose to tell you of something which you surely would not see unless you had some friend to point it out. Should you wish to see this new bit of Edinburgh, we will pass along on the wide stone pavement beside a solid high wall till we come to an open gate and a short flight of stairs. You would pass them by unnoticed, or if noted would never think to turn you steps in this direction, for it is only a little cemetery, hidden away there and cut off from the noise and confusion of the street by that solid wall, and you wonder why you are led to this sad spot, for you are not very fond of visiting the city of the dead, when there is so much of life and all that goes to make life so well worth living, but in this necropolis, is a sight to quicken the pulse of every true American—nay, more, of every lover of humanity. We will go to the farther side of the cemetery where you see that monument surmounted by the tall figure of a man in citizen’s dress. Do you recognize the face? Not yet? Well, come a little nearer; step a little this way, you will get a better view of the face. There, you know it 83now—the grave face of our martyred war president. Looking' down upon you arc the sad, tender, prophetic eyes of him who died to make men free. In his hand is the emancipation proclamation which struck the chains off from six million hands. There is the firm vet gentle mouth which pronounced those most Christian words. With charity for all, with malice toward none. With a moisture about the eyes that is not due to the Scottish mist; with your heart beating and swelling within your breast as it only throbs and thrills at the recollection of this great, true-hearted, whole-souled man, you turn to ask the meaning of this simple yet impressive monument, where, with his head ever bared to the breezes that blow from the hills of as freedom-loving a people as God ever made, stands our Lincoln. At the base, looking and reaching up to the man who dared to set his people free, is a representative of that race who look upon Mars Litikum as a greater than Moses. You read the word suffrage across the top of the pedestal and you understand the allegorical meaning. But still the mystery remains, why is it here? Three thousand miles from the land where the man still lives enshrined in the hearts of the people, lives as the savior of the nation? In the absence of the United States Consul I will tell you the story as the Consul told it to us, a little group of tourists glad to find a bit of home history commemorated in this far-off land. Not a few of our soldiers in the sad civil war were of Scotch birth and some of them arc buried in this consecrated spot. In the early part of the present decade the United States Consul conceived the idea of erecting a memorial to these brave brothers who deserve it no less than those who sleep beyond the sea, and there sprang into being this monument, placed in this rock-bound cemetery on a bit of ground of which the Consul holds the deed,and in 1895 memorial exercises were first held in this place; flowers were sent from far-off America and the victors' wreaths hung upon this stone. And on every memorial day since then, when we mark the last resting place of our departed soldier heroes with the sweet blossoms of spring, and when over each the banner of the freest people under the sun is waving, a little company is gathered in that far-off city by the sea, our nation's ilag is there and the wreaths laid upon that monument speak of the fame of those who fell fighting for freedom and the blossoms mutely tell of the peace they have won. Emily F. Webstkk. 8444 The Lady of the Lake ” Country. The western waves of ebbing day Kollcd o’er the glen their level way; Each purple peak, each flinty spire. Was bathed in Hoods of living fire. gleaming in the setting sun. One burnished sheet of living gold. Loch Katrine lay beneath him roll'd In all her length far winding lay. With promontory creek and bay. And islands that empurpled bright. Floated amid the livelier light And mountains, that like giants stand. To sentinel enchanted land. Our first sight of Loch Katrine was at sunset of a perfect June evening, and we realized that at such a time no words however poetic and suggestive can express the wondrous beauty of the scene. “High on the south huge Hen Ycnne Down to the lake in masses threw. Crags, knolls, and mounds.” “While on the north through middle air Ben An heaved high his forehead bare." Hold, stately, impressive Ben An, of which you never lose sight as long as you are in this region. I shall never forget the subdued but wonderful coloring of the water, particularly in the eastern end of the lake where the mountains shut out the brighter rays of the sun and where the reflections were vivid and beautiful beyond anything I had ever seen. A picturesque little boat house on the shore, the little steamer, the Rob Roy, the islands crowned with rocky minarets, were all reflected with a vividness that seemed like enchantment and was bewildcringly beautiful. We did not reach Loch Katrine by the same route that Fitz James and his party took, but followed more nearly that taken by Roderick Dhu and his 85clansmen when they came to the Island the next morning after the arrival of the disguised king. Early in the day we had taken a steamer at Ardlui and rode down Loch Lomond as far as Luss. You will remember Luss as one of the places visited by Roderick on his raid into the Lowlands. It is now a delightful little hamlet with picturesque stone cottages standing by the roadside and covered with roses to their very roofs. Here we took a returning steamer and saw again the wonderful mountain scenery, for which this lake is noted, passing near and obtaining several fine views of Ben Lomond, the Monarch of the Highlands as this majestic mountain peak is called. At Inversmaid we left the boat and took a coach for a five-mile drive to Loch Katrine. These coaches are something like an omnibus with the seats all on the top. What corresponds to the inside of the omnibus is a receptacle for traveling bags, fishing tackle, rilles and water-proof lap rugs, which are used in case of rain. The seats on the top usually face toward the front and being so elevated are very sightly and desirable. Our driver was a very good natured and obliging man and tried to be equal all requirements. He gave the names of all the birds and blossoms that any of us saw on the way, pointed out all the mountain peaks, and really displayed a surprising knowledge of geography and natural history. But when one of the passengers remarked upon his line horses and expressed the opinion that they were worthy to be named for some of the Scottish heroes, he looked perplexed and was silent for a very perceptible space of time. Then he seemed to recover himself and pointing to a beautiful black horse at one of the wheels, said that his name was Roderick Dhu. We thought that Black Roderick was a very appropriate name for this horse and were delighted to hear a minute or two later that his mate was named James Fit James. Then touching with his long lash, one of the leaders he said, “This is Ellen MacGregor and her mate is Rob Roy.” I never could quite decide whether this was an impromptu effort at naming or not. If it was an impromptu, it was a very good one. The next day was Sunday and after attending service in a little stone church on the northern shore of Loch Achray, we started for the Brig of Turk where you remember “The headmost horseman rode alone. We walked on and soon reached the huts ofDuncr aggan. Many of the small stone huts standing there today, were undoubtedly standing when Scott visited the place and wrote the poem that has made it famous. We were getting along so finely that we becamed fired with the ambition to walk to Coilantogleford, (only two miles farther) and two out of the foui ladies actuarly did so. 86This is the place where the combat between Fitz James and Roderick Dhu took place and where “The Tcith, the daughter of three mighty lakes from Vennachar in silver breaks.” Upon returning to our hotel we dined and then went to see Loch Katrine once more at sunset. Before retiring for the night we estimated by the aid of our guide books, the distance we had walked that day and found it to be fully fifteen miles. Suddenly we became very tired and felt that we were in great danger of sharing the fate of Fitz James' “gallant gray.” The next morning we left the Trossachs with deep regret and went to Stirling, which is still a fortress although no longer a royal residence. Here we entered the Court of Guards, where you will remember Ellen and old Allen Bane presented themselves. We were also allowed to look into a dungeon which is still called Roderick Dhu’s dungeon. We saw many historical relics of James V. who was the James Fitz James of our poem. Here from the walls of the castle we saw the “links of the Forth” and all that beautiful Lowland scenery, and here we must bid good-by to the enchantingcountry of The Lady of the Lake. 87cAn cApology to the Joshed. t TN getting out this department of The Quiver, it has been necessary to relate many little incidents which occur from day to day, and which help to make life more bearable in this vale of tears. But principally we have devoted ourselves to the oddities and peculiarities of the people who surround us. We suppose some of you will have your tender sensibilities terribly lacerated, and we are preparing to the best of our ability, to sympathize with you over the mean things which we will say, and for which our only plea is that of necessity. Much of our material is gained from actual actualities, and some has fermented in our seething brain. As for the jokes, we guarantee them to be perfectly pointless, and therefore necessarily harmless. So }-ou may allow the baby to play with them, with no fear that they will hurt “it,” even if “ it” should swallow them. This brand of joke has been manufactured expressly at the request of part of the faculty, and before using any be sure to see that the name “Quiver” is blown in the bottle, together with the guarantee, “ Embalmed roast joke,” warranted to keep seventy-two hours in the warmest climate.” Now, dear reader, if one of these scintillating ha-ha’s strike in your vicinity, dont get angry, rise up in your wrath and eat up the scenery. Consider where it comes from. “ We don’t know no better, and don’t mean no harm,” as the poet says. Remember this, and take into consideration our ignorance and your popularity, which made it profitable for us to publish a joke on you. Now, please do remember this, and don't tie your face up in a Gordian knot, as it only serves to increase the natural degree of the homliness of which you may be the proud possessor. Practically, however, between you and I and the sidewalk, it doesn't affect us in the least whichever way you take it, and so we really don’t care a fraction of a bug’s car. Remember also this, that in using your illustrious cognomen in connection with this publication we are paying you a very flattering compliment. Just stop a moment and think : We pick your name from out some six hundred others, for the edification and instruction of the remaining five Hundred and ninety-nine. Therefore, with pity for all, and malice toward none, we will take off our coat, roll up our sleeves, and sail into you. 89Peter Hayseed Writes on “Poetry.” t Aint nothin' hard fur me to write a poem for the Quiver, Coz I alius took to poetry like a muskrat to the river. I a alius said he'd bet I'd rise as other poets riz. If I'd leave the hogs and turnips an' pay 'tention to the biz. Some folks is always wantin’ facts, and seemin' to be blind. To the great fact that poetry’s truth, but of a higher kind. Writin’ poetry aint hard, there aint hardly nothin to it. To me it come so nat'rl like, 'pears anyone can do it; Jes’ go to the dictionary n’ find two words 'at rhyme. An’ jinc ’em kind of easy like at the end of every line. W’y it’s easier than plowin’ er a cuttin oats er corn. Er a steppin lively up to meals when you hear the dinner horn. Now most alius when I set down and hev to write a poem, I sling in lots of melody 'at sets the heart agoin’. Fur I’ve noticed people mostly like to see the horses prancin’, An’ birds a singin' in the trees an’ purty girls a dancin.' Poetry’s a seein’ things, a seein things by day and night, A seein’ beauty in a pipe ’ats frozen hard and tight. Its an appreciatin’ in the heart of the might of love and law. An a buildin up of palaces outen mud an straw. Its a stirrin up a lazy man wots tryin’ to take his ease. An’ a makin' up of feastsand banquetsouten bread an’cheese. Its the triumph of a drownin’ man ’ts just a goin to sink, Er throwin’ mud and slush around an' callin' it a “rink." Its a washin’ up a lot of ducks an’ a callin’ of ’em swans, An’ a sellin’ sand an’ Jimson weeds fur rich an' velvet lawns. Its a takin' up “perfessional’’ work an tryin to seem .willin’. To 'simulate the hunks an’ chunks ’ats neither food ncr fillin' Its a hearin’ of the larks sweet song a risin’ on the breeze. And fergettin’ bout the crows and jays a screamin’in the trees. Its a takin’ likin’s every day and still come up a smilin', An’ talkin’ sweet like with our lips wen our insides is bilin’. It’s a bearin’ of the world’s discord an' a'pearin’ not to hear it. An’ a seein' the weak deeds of men but interpretin’ the spirit. An’ now I’ll sum it in a line an’stop my writin’ here, By sayin’ poetry’s background of our lives, likewise the atmosphere. An’ while I don’t brag much on it fer feedin’ pigs and sich. It glorifies our humble life an’ makes the pauper rich. It aint a sawin’ wood an’ ice but who there be that doubt it, I don’t want no city in the skies ’ats builded up without it. W. C. II.The Sltieet Girl Graduate. i The sweet girl graduate Is the topic of the day Her siiii is shining brightly And she’s busy making hay. The sweet girl graduate Is dressed all up in white. And she’s doing some tall thinking On the essays she shall write. Her brow is corrugated Like a road of corduroy. Hut she'll soon be graduated So her heart is filled with joy. And later she’ll be teaching Young ideas how to shoot. And also incidcntly, Many other things to boot. She has buckled on her armor In a figurative way, And she’s looking now for glory. Oh, she’s ready for the fray. Her lungs are deep and powerful Hike a blacksmith's bellows. And so she has a class veil Just like the other fellows. Te du m, razzle dazzle Tutti Futti gum. Hoopti doodle, roley, poley We’re out for fun. They have filled her mind with grammar And many other things. With thoughts of soda water And other kinds of slings. While she just dotes on literature On Browning she will talk, Especially when with Willie (?) She takes an evening walk. She knows all about theorms Straight lines and polly gols. Pentagons and octagons And other fol de rolls. She has also studied physics Of the various phenomena. And a I said before She is busy making hay. Psychology ! Why she knows it all Can tell you just what you’re thinking, But praise the powers that be that She knows not what we’re drinking. At Algebra she’s just as good You cannot her complex. For if she knows a thing or not She knows it equals X. And there arc many other things She learns while she’s at school. She learns that she should never guess But always go by rule. And so sweet graduate In your pretty dress of white. We know you, “easy,” sec ! And we know that you’re all right. We know that in life's battle You will always fight for right. And always conquer failure And knock it out of sight. But say, sweet graduate. Just twixt you and me, Did you ever eat an onion Or try to climb a tree. Oh sweet girl graduate Do you ever make mistakes. Arc you really just perfection Do you always take the cakes. Did you ever wash the dishes Or try to bake the bread. Is there culinary knowledge Engrafted in your head? Do you like to read a novel With a pretty yellow back. With a hammer or a hair brush Do you try to drive a tack? There, there, now little girl. Wipe away that tear. We’ve joshed you rather hard But you are a darling dear. So ere we finish up this thing And put our pens aside, I,et us whisper to you once. You're our glory and our pride. Then remember this, girl graduate. As on thro life you're whirled. That the hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rules the world.cMitchelVs 9$ink. t Parable from the 37th Charter of St. Jacob's Oil. And it came to pass that over in the land of Oshkosh which lieth over against Van Dyne there dwelt a certain man named Mitchell. And behold it was in the year ’99 and it became cold and he patted himself on the back and said: “Ha, Ha, we will have a rink.” And it was so. And he gat himself to the assembled congregation in the morning exercises, and he said: “ Ho it grows cold, let us have an ice rink even upon the campus. Even I shall be the manager and you shall pay me such monies, every one, even as it shall be appointed him.” And the assembled people made a great noise and shouted: “What’s the matter with Mitchell,” and gave great rejoicing. Por lo, a great man had arisen among them. And they said behold, we will build a rink of ice, even upon the campus and it shall cost us not much, and they winked at each other, and their smile was an exceeding great smole. And it came to pass that Mitchell furnished the coin. And the man came with a hose and squirted water even upon the campus, and lo and behold it froze, and the size of the rink was even of eighteen cubits long and ten cubits wide. And lo, and behold, the snow came and covered it exceedingly, and such was the depth thereof that skating was not advisable. And the man came with his shovel and shoveled, and the days of his labor were seven, and behold when he had shoveled for the seven appointed days, the sun came out and melted the ice. And the boys came with their girls, and the girls catne with their boys, and Mitchell came with his dog, but behold they skate not. And it froze, and it rained, and the man shoveled, and the ice melted, and it froze, and it snowed, and the man shoveled, and it melted even unto the days of spring. And none came to skate. Even these things happened in the year (1898) eighteen hundred and ninety eight. And it came to pass that the faculty joshed him. and his days were full of trials and tribulations. And he prayed that the faculty might fall down upon the ice. And it was not so. And he got up and he sat down. And he girded on his overcoat about him. 02And he wot not why it was thusly, but behold there was not much money in the treasury. And Mitchell was exceeding- wrath, and he paid the man that had shoveled and the water works that had squirted even out of his own pocket. And he smiled a cheap smile even unto himself because of the expense of the rink; he could not afford a better, and he said, verily it seemeth to me that this is a chilly deal. And now the days of spring had come. And behold the rains descended and the ice melted, and the snow melted, and the water rose, and there was wailing and washing of feet, for behold the waters covered the side paths, and such was the depth thereof that it was exceeding deep. And lo, the people murmered and they arose in their wrath and came unto the man saying, “Wherefore hast thou done this thing, so that our damsels cannot promenade, except that they get their pedal appendages soaked in acquit purai ” And the girls said he was a mean old thing, and it was so, so. And lo, and behold, they said let us put him to death, and so they took him to the land of the Gymnasium which licth over the Ladies Study and there they hung him. W. B.

Little Chute, Wis. {Extract From Daily Observer, 2500 A. D.) This curious piece of literature was found in the ancient ruins which are believed at one time to have been some kind of an institution of learning. It was found in a room which judging from appearances was a place of torture or confinement. The exact meaning of this valuable relic has not been determined but is believed to be an invocation to some heathen goddess. It is a very valuable piece of Mss. and as far as interpreted gives us a very curious insight into the manners and customs of that time. 94Here’s to You: A .i Kilty. They took the Normal Institution here by storm. They came in like a breeze of sweet spring air; They’re the smartest lot we think were ever born; They're not tough, nor underdone, nor neither rare. Hut just the proper thing to make them nice. In snow or hail, or summer mists, or rain. They’re just as fresh as if they’re kept on ice, Long years will pass before you see their like again. Then here’s to you. Mr. Senior. You. the class of ’9 ». We're proud and glad to know you and we think you're awful fine. We hear all kinds of praises a-hangin’ on your name. An’ we won’t try to rob you of a single bit of fame. You've worked and tussled with all kinds of problems. From practice tcachin’ up to how to love. Upon your heads there rests the sparklin' diadems, Like them that shines upon the gods above. Eii these here bright and shinin' ornamentals You've won by patient, hard and weary work. For when upon a thing you set your dentals You made it come, altho’ it sometimes hurt. Then here's to you, jolly Seniors! Here’s hopin’you may live until you die. There ain't no class that ever lived from you can take the pie. We’ve seen and tried your wisdom, and we know that you’re all right. You bet ycr life we like you. you’re our greatest heart’s delight. Of course we're glad—that’s why your hand we’re a-wringin’ This proud and bright and happy day in June: But the birds don't seem to please us with their singin’— There’s just a bit of sadness in their tune. For the school seems kind of big and queer and roomy; We wander up and down and round about, Our hearts are filled with thoughts all sad and gloomy, For the class of '99’s gone up the spout. Then here’s to you, old fellers, here’s hopin’ you'll have luck. Here’s lookin’ at you! But for proper words I'm stuck: Hut that don’t make no difference: you know ’bout how we feel.

The sun is just kissing the eastern sky good morning and the sky is blushing at the oscullatory performance with the same entrancing, vivid modesty of a member of the Freshman class under similar circumstances. All the world is bathed in the sweet liquid light, including Oshkosh, and the sleeping apartments of Adolphus Kautakissenher Gregorious Jones. As a stray beam steals timidly in through the meshes of the beautiful imported 50c lace curtain, and tickles his eyelashes, he slowly opens the window of his soul. He gazes about him with the amazed air of one who had gone to sleep in Europe and awoke in Van Dyne. He cannot remember where he is or hardly who he is. This surely was not his little room in the old farm house, where the plaster had fallen away from the fond embrace of the lath; where the mice played tag on the bare floor; where the winter winds whistled through and the summer rains stole in. Everything is changed, these walls are papered; there is not, no not a single crack in them, and can he believe his eyes, a real rag carpet on the lloor. At last, however, as he becomes more thoroughly awake he remembers it all; how he, the pride and boast of his home and “deestrict,”had left the paternal abode, and come out into the world, yea even into the Oshkosh Normal, to become a great man. At this thought he springs from off his downy couch and prepares for his first day at school. Ah! that first day; that day when he first became a suitor at the court of the goddess of learning, when friendless and timid he wandered through those sacred halls of her temple. When, as he imagined, all eyes were centered upon him, when bells rang in a mysterious manner upon the slightest provocation, and wild eyed observers glided past with agonized faces. Never to his dying day or night, as the case may be, will he ever forget filling out those oceans of blanks, and how he got himself shockingly tangled in the meshes of red tape. And through all these horrid dreams like an unquiet spirit floats the image of a man with a red tie of such intense candle power that it burned itself into our hero’s brains, as he blankly wondered if its owner wore an asbestos shirt front. But why enumerate these: why prolong his misery? Suftice it to say that ere long, this bud from the rural districts had blossomed into the everlasting, never fading Normalite. 96This shall not he a history of his life. No, only a page from the sad sweet story of how the tender tendrils of his young heart wound themselves around his life, and how the stern abiterof fate, and a red tie—but I digress. Let us return to our story. Time went on, busy, happy days, when all his thoughts were on his lessons, and the ambition of his youth had become a fixed purpose, etc., etc., etc. Chapters . III. IV. I deal with the progress of our hero along the usual lines until in CHAPTER VI. ENTERS THE HEROINE. She is sitting in her seat in the ladies' study, looking pensively out of the window at the bleak November landscape. She thinks how like her life—how monotonous, what a satnely sameness. She is not handsome, but as one would say interesting. Her hair is black and hangs down her back in two long, shining braids like a couple of tarred ropes. Her complexion is a beautiful carmine, like the aforesaid morning sky, only “more so." Her features are regular; regularstunners, especially her mouth, which is large and with a willowy droop at each corner. Her eyes, which gaze out at one coyly through drooping eyelashes, are a deep maroon, shading in toward green. As she sits quietly there, she might see, if she would look around the corner, a man with a red tie. To proceed with our story. Adolphus is standing in the doorway. His eyes roam around the room with a searching look until at last Angelina comes within their range, and there they rest, feasting upon her glowing beauty. At last he moves toward her with the easy, gliding movement of a crab, and as she hears his gentle footprints she raises her beautiful orbs and meeting his they drop in blushing confusion to the floor, with a dull, sickening thud. Meanwhile a large smile plays tag upon her classic features, and jumps from crag to crag, as it were, until it finally escapes through the window. He seats himself in the seat beside her and tenderly says—but, no, I must not, cannot tell, to a cold and a cynical world the tender way in which the old, old story was rehashed, and dished up as something entirely new, what looks were exchanged, what vows made. Let it be enough to say that there they stayed until the janitor, not in cruel words, but gently, with a broom, hinted that their room would be a more highly prized commodity than their highly valued presence. Things went on “ thusly" for several moons. Everything was lovely. The only thorn which entered their lives was the fact that he was a Lyceum-ite. while she had sworn allegiance to the Phoenccians. Many times had 97she pleaded with him to come into the fold and be saved, but, alas, he was obdurate and argued vice versa, but in vain. “Very well,” she said, “do as you please then, if you aren’t so contrary you won’t." It had been customary with him after his society had adjourned to journey to the realms of the Phtcnecians and there in the halls without await his lady love. There he would sit and think and plan for the future, how they two would go out into the world together, fighting its battles side by side and how he would never make her saw wood or light the fire in the morning; how he would have a hired man for all such heavy work, and how life would be “one grand, sweet song." Hut, alas, for human cobwebs spun in the darkened brain of man. Set with the jewels of dew, they sparkle in the morning light, but the sun that makes them sparkle steals them and leaves all dull and gray. Chapters VII, VIII, IX and X treat upon the growth of the flower of love which had bloomed for them, after the conventional manner of the native yellow novel, until in CHAPTER XI. KNTKRS THB VILI.AIN. It was Saturday evening and Angelina was in attendance on society in all her glory. She looked somewhat saddened as though she had watched one base ball aggregation trying to play ball with the usual results. Added to this there was a rather piqued expression upon her classic features which gave them an unusual charm, for tonight she had made one last effort to have Adolphus accompany her to the Phoenix and enlist in the cause; but no, he would not, and so she needs must go alone. To speak it plainly she was “mad"; and through what she was pleased to call her mind, plans for revenge were flowing in large octagonal chunks. While all her thoughts like the aurora borealis upon a cold winter night shone the vivid half-imaged recollection of a red tie. She had not been there long when there entered a young man. One whom she had seen many times during her school life at the Normal, but with whom she had never become acquainted. Many of the girls had branded him as cute, but at that time she was anti-expansionist and had paid no attention to him. She had considered herself as off the market and as long as Adolphus was true to her she cared for none other. However, tonight she was, as I said before, “mad", and woe to the unlucky mortal who had crossed her wishes. This cute young man wore a red tie. On entering the room he took the only unoccupied seat, which happened as fate would have it, to be next to Angeline. He smiled faintly. She returned it with interest. He butted it back and again she went him one better and the score stood 40 love. He h’m’d ! She h’m’d ! He spoke and she answered him, and soon by aid of this 98j scientific jugglery there was a rapid stream of conversation Mowing between them upon such obtruse subjects as the weather, how they liked school, professional arithmetic and such interesting topics. Angelina was fascinated. That red tie! Those mobile mouth ! These | acqulinc nose and them beautiful mouse-colored eyes, sunk deep into her soul, and alas for woman’s consistency, Adolphus was forgotten. And when Pete, for such was the young man’s name asked, “May I see you home?” she answered “You may.” At last society is over and they prepare to depart. Will she falter and take pity on Adolphus? No, there is an expression of fiendish satisfaction . upon her firm set face. The doors are Hung wide and leaning upon Pete’s shoulder, with her head high in the air she majestically glides past the blighted, blasted soul which she had cast aside. BLUE LIGHTS. Soon they are all gone—all did I say ( Nay not all. One there is who with stony, staring eyes has stayed behind, rooted like a statue to the floor. Long he stood gnawing his mustache, and gnashing his teeth vowing vengeance on the one who had stolen his life; on the one who had cast him aside like a wilted flower. It was the old, old story, old as the history of the race, of man’s unselfish trusting nature, and of woman’s guile and inconsistency. At last lie roused himself, pulled down his vest, rearranged his drooping mustache that cute little mouse-colored mustache which he had grown solely for her; who had set her face against it. Ah, the cruelty of fate. With one last look around, at the halls which should know him no more, he turned and with a sigh like the long drawn wail of the midnight cat, he stole sadly down the deserted corridor and passed out alone into the cold dreary world to wreak vengeance upon the man a red tie.

A rustle of skirts on the stairs, an open door, and a dignified “Good evening ” ushered in the most popular of Senior young men. The weather was chilly, and it took him some time to remove his overcoat and hat, and to arrange his hair, as he entered the parlor, which already contained numerous other prominent ladies and gentlemen, connected with “ the only ” Normal, and with this “ the only ” Senior class. At last, with a final touch to that may-yet-be mustache, and a little extra straightening of the shoulders—for is he not the leader of the inter-state debate, the acknowledged chief in all discussions that call for talk and learning (especially talk), the pride of class and school and country (?) he enters, smilingly, and vet with a dignity suitable to his position and importance, the presence of his friends. He is a little surprised at first at the odd smiles that seem to greet his entrance, but they soon subside, and he sits him down and proceeds to usurp the attention and the talk of all present. All listen approvingly, as they are wont to do, and all goes merry as an after-school reception, when suddenly the eyes of the guest of the evening chance to fall upon a large mirror in the opposite corner. Horrors! Can that be he—he who spent at least an hour on his toilet, he the center of this charming group (he the proud possessor of a two(?)-weeks-old mustache), attired in his Sunday coat and vest, minus that most essential and pleasing part of man’s attire — a collar and necktie ! Alas, too true! and for once the power of speech leaves him,and in dumb agony he gazes from one to another with the appealing eyes of the crushed. Then, with a measly smile, he flees from the room to that of a gentleman friend who kindly furnishes the lacking adornments. It is rumored that the witnesses of this startling incident swore secrecy, so please don’t tell what hapj cned to Jones. G. W.

The injured gentleman, was ambling along, cogniting, and quite oblivious to the outer world, when his assailant sprung at him and struck him on the isosocles quadralateral. He fell to the ground, and in doing so, struck his romboidal spherical cuboid on a right-angled triangle, which had been left carelessly lying about. I)r. Lough was called, and it was found that his pentagonal parabola was fractured in two places. But the doctor says that if none of the right-angled triangle is left in his polygroglegum, and no complications such as spherical trihedrals, or rectilinear circles set in, he has a chance of recovery. Ilis assailant has been arrested and placed under the radical. Mr. Hewitt, insists, however, that he is square and rational and not a(b)surd. As we go to press he is busy trying to extract himself. If no more complications set in, it will be interesting to note if I)r. Lough can demonstrate the truth of his hypothesis, the lines of which do not at all coincide with our theorem.

The bright June sun stole gently in at the open window, and the sweet summer zephyrs played lovingly with his gray locks, in their endeavor to rouse him. Hut alas ! It could never was. The angel of death had a mortgage on him; which he was about to foreclose, and but a few minutes more and he would be hustled on board the train for the land of graduates, “where lessons cease from troubling, and the faculty are at rest.” The room was hushed in silence. Over all was spread a gloom, thick as a base ball defeat. The bed tick sounded monotonously on. The diamond ring on Miss Morey’s hand was plainly audible. You could have heard a chocolate drop. Sadly they gathered around him. Juniors. Sophomores, Freshmen; all with sorrow written upon their features. Now he is talking deleriously, and listening closely they hear him mutter. “All right, Rose I'll be Good." His eyes stare, “What do I see—Fourth Ouartcr Algebra. Take it away.” Then with a last supreme effort he raises himself. His hands clutch convulsively as he appealingly looks up and says: “Don't, don't make me take Rhetoric." Again he drops back, and they faintly hear him mutter, “Professional Arithmetic, that-scttles-it-I-can-see-my-finish," and with a rattling in his throat he gave up the goat. His soul had passed on to that happy hunting ground w’here school boards and fat jobs roam in mighty herds upon the plains of the future.

Mr. Hughes had formed the habit, when passing a certain house, of raising his classic features, and gazing at a certain window, where dwelt a certain damsel. This continued for some time, until one fatal day, as passing the aforesaid domicile, Mr. Hughes heard a tapping at the window, looked up, and saw—not a girl’s face, but a big card, on which was written the one word. “Rubber!” And. needless to say, it needed no Hebrew prophet to interpret it.

During the riot eight promising young men lost their lives, many were wounded and much valuable property was destroyed. The names of the killed were as follows: John Lonesome Jones, Jeremiah Ebenezer Beckler, Chas. Wistful Vande Walker, Little Chief Christensen, Nicolas Adonis Waghner, J. Edwin Bailey, Albert Bismarck Shoeblack, and little Billy Lough, who had strayed from his shepherd. Among the wounded appear the names of Bennie, smile distorted; Basset, voice fractured in two places; Mell Ellsworth and Miss Hansen, feeling lacerated. Many others suffered minor injuries. All these, however, may recover. The immediate occasion for the uprising was the fact that a class meeting had been called, and the young men who lost their lives were using means which the existing moral code does not sanction in opposing the passing of the cap and gown resolution. As soon as it became apparent that Jones, Beckler and the gang would be successful, the promoters of the bills became frantic in their frenzy. Pandemonium broke loose, and cries of “Kill them!" “Hang them!” “Down with Jones!” etc., broke forth. The terrified men tried to escape and part of them succeeded in doing so through the doors, windows and transoms, and here the first fatality occurred, in which Christensen lost the only life he had. He was rudely stepped on and flattened out by one of the girls. Those who failed to escape from the room, Waghner and Bailey, were hung to the nearest gas jet. The mob then, under the leadership of Mell E., Miss Cl. W. A., Ida S. and “Only One Girl,"scoured the entire building and grounds. When one of the fugitives was captured no mercy was shown him. 124Van de Walker was the next to fall. He escaped from the mob for a while and hid himself in his lair in the chemical lab. However, they soon found him, and seizing him, despite his frantic struggle, administered a decoction of N2 O, which soon put him out of his misery. Scarcely had they completed their fiendish work when John Lonesome Jones was seen fleeing through the halls. With a yell the mob pursued him, and he was captured just as he was entering the physical lab. Here they seized him and with fiendish ingenuity, at the suggestion of one of the leaders, placed him under the large bell jar'and extracted the air, “Only One Girl.” lie died in five minutes in terrible agony. His last words were, “I die, but Kelley lives.” Meanwhile other divisions of the mob had been equally busy. Bishop Beckler was caught up a tree on the south side of the campus. He was made to come off his perch and dragged to the fountain, where, without the consolation of his church, they immersed him in the water and held him under until his meek and gentle spirit had flown. Ono of the saddest events of the day, and one which drew tears even from the rioters themselves, was the demise of Doc. Lough. Jr. He was so young and tender, and it seemed such a pity that just as the shepherd had him within the fold, that fate should come along and knock the eternal daylight out of him. While part of the mob held him his head was deliberately cut off -from his hair. Schubert was the last to fall. One of the scouring parties, by the aid of a powerful glass, discovered him trying to mount to the clouds upon his famous agitator oration. He, however, only got as high as the tower, where a division of the girls were awaiting him. He seemed much agitated. They made him recite his little piece and then took him and flung him to the pavement below, where he fell flat. 126cNel 'Books. + (Notices Extracted from The Critic Observer.')
