With trepidation and with eagerness we also pass out to discover the successes which await us there. Since we cannot Ik described, a few words must suffice, just that you may know in what manner we progress. Some of us have been with the school since it opened, eleven years ago. As Freshmen and Elcmcntnrics others joined us, and that course is one to lx remembered. Last, year we were joined by some of the brightest products of the high schools and wo organized as one of the strongest Junior Classes the school has ever known—jolly comrades, diligent workers. When we played we were to he envied. When we worked we were unrivalled. As Seniors, we have fulfilled the promises of the past. Our poets, our musicians, our artists, deserve no little credit. Always prominent in debate, we sent out a winning school team. This year we furnish the state orator, the second from this school. Every school undertaking, social, literary, athletic, has been marked l»y our enterprise and capability, Having at bust attained that enviable goal to which all good Normalitcs strive, we look back over a course of diligence crowned with success. It only serves to inspire us to greater effort when enter the wide field of work which now awaits us. And we hope that this example may also inspire and encourage those who follow to strive for an equal success. R. W. «Senior Poem Our Excuse A Senior poem do you say Is missing from these pages? We’ve time for only just a word While work about us rages. Poets must inspired he— Time to write the message sent. We have Finals, Essays, Class Plays, Annuals and Commencement. But when we’re leaders in the land And much leisure do command As Alumni we’ll Ik true And send the Muse’s thought.- to you. —F. E. Wool . T— — — — • Seniors Stella C. Nalwtck James K.

See.— ODE TO THE JUNIORS 1906 The rill that frets and foams and sings High on the mountain side Obeys the force that sometime brings It to the ocean wide. For Nature's laws must be obeyed, The rills to brooks must grow, The daring, dushing leap be stayed In a more steady flow. The brooks their titles soon give o’er To streams of mighty motion Which, calm, majestic, hear the roar Of the eturnal ocean, The freshman, with his tiny rill of learning, Plays prettily with knowledge, mid his yearning To 1m the Soph’more brook, to be so wise, In his and in his classmates eyes, That what he knows shall, like the mighty brook. Swoop Ignoranco before him with a look. Ho chafes and chatters, As he onward clatters, And dares to wonder in his modest way Whether he’ll be a Sophomore some day. A Soph, he is delighted with his power And longs to wield it every hour. He knows the way, His own way he will come. While Learning has to stay To see him come. His fierce impetuosity, His infinite precocity, Each is a small (?) monstrosity ! He leads no life of quiet nor of ease: He fears no faculty nor strives to please; He scarce can keep within its narrow banks His torrent stream of wit. his jokes and pranks. Hut ah! this babbling, bubbling, boist’rous brook Discovers that the world is not a nook Or for him to stray in ! Afar ho sees the river’s glistening gleam, And slacks his pace to greet the noble stream. The stream slips smoothly on: The Soph’morc brook is gone. The Junior stream runs smooth and deep Her even-tenored way to keep. No Freshman fears, no Soph’more noise Disturbs its course amid its joys: With depth and power its flow is fraught As seen in calm unruffled thought. Our characters are as sealed books Whose titled covers are our looks, Who sees a Junior mark him well: His balanced bearing one can tell By face, by mien and attitude As giving Ease full latitude Yet keeping all within control Mid steady striving toward the goal. His is the medium between The Soph'more and the Senior mien : The one conceit, the other care. Moth writhe with essays of despair! This lacks knowledge, that’s too sage ; That wants youth and this lacks age (?) : But the Junior spirit keen Stands the two extremes between : Senior wisdom, Sophomore wit Both the happy Juniors fit! When our river’s gentle motion Ceases with next year's commotion. When the Seniors have been crowded To the sea in tumult shrouded, Where the gusty gales assail them,— Then our thought can but bewail them; For we must take their places. “Vanish Ease ! And fly, ye Graces.” Junior anchorages sunder As we hear the rough waves thunder. J. II. Browns.Juniors NAME. HOST OPTIC . COUNTY. AGNEW, WALTER F.........Slovens Point, Portage.

The sway and totter midst the wave, The struggle hard our hark to save; To keep her from the shore and rocks. To stear her clear of deadly shocks. Two years upon life's training ship, They toiled and tugged to get a grip Upon the manner's charts and laws. Two years we’ve toiled without a fause. Two years we’ve thot and sketched and planned. As students we have worked with heart and hand. Two years our captain staunch and brave, Hath tempest guclled, hath sought to save Each untraided hand from toil and eare, .If I Elementary Class Poem Old Keptuncs laws he has laid hare, lie taught the science of the stars, Of currents, winds, and deadly bars. Two years we've toiled upon our ship; At last completed. Upon our trip They are prepared to start at break of day. No more on this our training ship we stay. For years we’ve sorted culled and cargo learned, And filled her full from how to deepest stern. At the ships helm we firmly take our stand And carefully guide our hark with treadling hand, Among the breakers and rocks of treacherous hay, Out on life’s larger ocean do we stray; Out midst life’s titful storms and swells, And wave our Captain, crow, fond farewell. L. E. Xonwoon. 7Elementary Class Prophecy Manila, P. I., Sept., 1, 1916. “ Yea, hero we are after having spent our vacation in different parts of the world, as night brings the wanderer home, so tho first of September beckons the American teacher to his Held of duty. As we look across the waters of the bay, tho sunset floods our memories with recollections. Wo recull our lirst landing when Manila was the only city of importance, and the American school system was in its infancy. Now we think of the Philipines with its many large cities, two Normal schools and many High and Graded schools. Hut let us hear the news. Miss Burns, how did you enjoy your trip to Jerusalem ? ” “ I had a very pleasant time.” “And Miss Scott, where did you spend your summer ?” “ I spent the greater part of my time at Vienna, and while there I met one of my old schoolmates, Miss Vos-burg who is studying music. While returning I met Mrs. (--------Oldfield.) who was on her way to join her hus- band, an active missionary in Africa. She informed me that she stopped off at Paris and was the guest of Mr. Kidsmoe, who is manager of a well established wholesale clothing store. Just across the street she noticed a fine stone mansion on the door-plate of which was engraved. “ United States Legation, O. R. Weinandy, Ambassador.” “Thst makes me think while on my way back from Jerusalem, I met Misses A. Johnson and Verna Phillips, who were on their way home, having spent the last five years working as missionaries in Arabia at a station established by Messrs. Wysocki and Roberts ’ “ Mr. Xlurran, did 1 understand you to sav that you had spent our summer in the United States?" “ Yes I had the opportunity of visiting my old home in Wisconsin and some other points in the Mississippi Valley. I was much surprised to meet Mr. Roy Judd and Mrs. Anna Ryan-(------) who were returning from their wedding trip to Alaska. Mr. Judd has built up u large and lucrative practice as an eye specialist. By the way Mr. Hurley, let us hear of your trip after leaving me at Omaha.1’ “ I stopped at the Commercial hotel there and became much interested in some views of the scenery of Mexico, by Mr. Milo Wood, which were just being made into book form under his supervision. I went to New York by way of Chicago and had a short visit with Ted Walker who is now pitching for the Three I league. While waiting for Mr. Walker to dress for the theater! picked up the ‘‘Comfort" and one of the first things I noticed was the column signed Cousin Maron, edited by Helen Dernbach.’’ “ Did you hear anything of Leo McCormick ? Some years ago I heard he was one of the leading lawyers of New York." Yes he is now one of the leading att rneys in that city. While there I was delightfully entertained by him at his elegant home on Broadway." I always thought ho would make his mark in this line ever since we were in Civics together under Mr. Sanford.” ‘‘He informed me that Le Hoy Wood of Wisconsin now occupies the seat in the Senate formerly held by It. 8M. LaFollette. While there I picked up a newspaper and one of the first things 1 noticed was that there was a political meeting to lx held August second. One of the chief speakers of the evening was Miss S. V. Hansen, who has become a noted woman suffrage speaker. On further nonotice I saw two business cards, one O. K. Evenson, Phrenology and Palmistry : another of J. Roche, in the same line. Mrs. McCormick showed me a book written by Guy Pierce who has become a writer of some note. His chief work is on The Battle of “ Hastings.” “And arc the Misses Shields and Devins still in the millinery business ? ” ‘‘I believe someone is knocking! Mr. Hurley will you please go and see.” “ Well ! Well! If here isn’t Jerry.” “Why Mr. Madden, how do you do?” Take the bamboo rocking chair. ” " When did you arrive ? 1 thought you were running a steamship line on the Atlantic ocean. ” “I am and expect to buy a line between San Francisco and Manila. What are you people doing here? It has heen a long time since I have met so many of the old S. P. N. people together.” “Oh, we were just talking over old times and about some of the Elementary Class of 1905.” “ Have you beard the good news ? ” “No, what is it?” “ Capt. Lara Nelson has just been appointed Adjutant General, and is now taking up his duties in these islands. He came over on the same boat that I did.” “ What u grand year this ought to be with so many of our old friends near us. There is Miss Shumway who is to teach music in the high school at Cavite : and Miss Stromstad has obtained the position as critic teacher in the intermediate department of the Normal.” ‘‘Yes, and here is Mr. Curran who will not bo far away as he is still city superintendent at Zumaraga ; and Mr. Hurley, who has been teaching for tho past year in Samar, is appointed Institute Conductor for tho Philip pines.” “ Thru the efforts of Mr. Sievwright who is Commissioner of Education, we arc to have with us Miss Ella Terkloson as supervisor of drawing. Yes, and I almost forgot ; there are the Misses Wood and Williams, who have been teaching in Hawaii, have also accepted positions in our schools; and Miss Gartman is to be our Domestic Science teacher.” “Wo regret very much to learn that Mr. Hamilton, who has been our supervisor of music for the past four years is about to leave us as he has a position at the Hoston Conservatory of Music.” “ Speaking of Boston reminds me of a very good editorial in the “Transcript” of that city, written by Ada Moen. I also learned that Miss Butler is manager of an Employment Agency. Miss Scott, here is one of the latest daily papers from New York, in which I think you will notice some of the names of our old clsasmates.” “Oh, just look here! The North Polo has been reached at last.” “ What ? Who ! ? ” o“NORTH POLE REACHED at last.’ Messrs. Krienko and Ostcrbrink made the expedition in their new air-ship. “ If we had but known, Mr. Madden, we might liavo come over together, as I arrived here only two days ago. ” “ What have you been in America ?” “Yes, Mr. Hurley and I spent our summer vacation there. I visited my old home in Wisconsin.” “ Did you see or hear of any of my old teachers or schoolmates? ’ “ Yes, you know I could not resist the temptation to visit old S. P. N. I found Prof. K. S. Hycr had become President and was not a little surprised to find It. V. Christensen teaching Psychology there. Miss Young some time ago became Supervisor of the Kindcrgurtcn department. While there I inquired of Miss Young uboul Misses Bennett and Ostrum. She informed me that Miss Bennett is at present a missionery in New Zealand, and that Miss Ostrum while returning from Samoa, sustained serious injuries from an air-ship wreck, and is now in a hospital at Los Angeles.” “ As I was returning I stopped at Chicago and there learned that some of our class had become authors. Miss N. Coye has just written a book on “CULVER’S TRAVELS,” and Mr. Risk a text book on Geometry. Thru an acquaintance I learned that Miss E. Clark had married a wealthy merchant at Portage; and that she, who was formerly Miss Elvie Hutchins is now Well(s) with Albert. In Chicago I met Mr. Geo. Everson, who is now the world’s champion runner ; and that evening we went to a concert to hear Mr. Hein, the noted pianist.” “ Miss Hums, did you hoar of any other of our friends while at Jerusalem ? ” “ Yes, when I was returning, I was delightfully entertained at Calcutta, by Miss F. A liny, who is matron at the home of the bishop, (BischofT).” “ And 1 wonder where the Hughes boys have located ? " “ I met Dan at San Francisco where he is about to complete a harbor for airships. He said John was foreman of a brass foundry.” “ Brass foundry ! Well, anyone might guess he would get some such job from the way he used to jolly us at the Normal.” Miss Scott, will you please let me look at that paper?—Oh, Mr. Madden, you didn't tell us anything about the now magazine. What is it like?” “ It is a fashion paper nearly like the Designer, edited by Porter, Torbonson and Tracy.” “ I learned yesterday that Commissioner Sievwright has just secured the services of Misses Lulu Wood and Hattie Schnabel as teachers in our city schools.” “ Mr. Madden, won’t you remain with us and go to tho teachers’ Convention to-morrow? You may meet some of your old acquaitances.” “ Yes, stay, for it promises to be a very large meeting and you will hear Mr. Hurley speak on the subject: ' Tfic Gtowth of Education in the Philippines." “ And now as the shades of night are closing round us ; and we part on tho morrow, may we not plan to meet again and refresh our memories of the old friends who have been scattered broadcast by the hand of time to the remotest parts of the WOULD.”The Freshmen 1908 As we freshmen gathered in the halls of the Normal early in the school year we all looked forward to ten months of quiet work. However, this idea was soon shattered and the calm of the first few weeks soon broken by some of the bolder ones suggesting that we ought to organize. Ac-cordinly on September 14 a large notice appeared on the front board, summoning all true and loyal freshmen to meet in room 221. We straightway hastened to the place of meeting, cheerfully, yet not without many misgivings as to the outcome of such a solemn conference. Nevertheless it simply ended with the election of the following officers for the ensuing year. President, Reynold C. Olson : Vice President, Willis Boston; Secretary, Isa-bell Leonard ; Treasurer, Clarence Moriel 1. After a short time we learned from our admired patterns, the Seniors, that each class usually selected class-colors, so acting upon the suggestion we called another meeting from which we sallied forth, proudly wearing long streames of purple and white. As time wore on the home-sick and weary look died out of our faces and we l egan to think of other things and talk seriously of giving an entertainment to the more timid members of the class. With all due preparation and our usual promptness we arranged for a reception in the gymnasium where an evening was pleasantly spent. During the second quarter of the year an event took place which, although it was a surprise to the freshmen, was a huge joke on the Elements. For several weeks the Elementary basket ball team had trained faithfully and; as a result, their class sent a challange to the freshmen requesting them to meet in a game of Basket-ball on a Friday afternoon. The challenge, after much debating, was accepted and game was played much to the not too silent amusement of the Freshmen who were out full force to cheer for their players. We will not (a fact due to our usual modesty) dwell long on the outcome of that game or on the outcome of a return game played a few weeks later: but, we think it proper to say that we were not ashamed of our boys. As the closing days of the year draw near we can not help looking back on our year as Freshmen with pride; for, although we have had severe trials and had many a hard proposition to face wo feel that we have rewarded for our efforts and attained a creditable degree of success. Looking forward, we see ourselves the Elements of next year: and it rests with us if we shall maintain, and, possibly eclipse the records and standards we have established as Freshmen. R. C. O.

The judges selected were Hon. Timothy Ryan of Waukesha, Supt. II. S. Voukcr of Grand Rapids, and Supt. M. N. Me Ivor of Eau Claire. The question debated was: “Resolved, That the general effect of labor unions for the past twenty years has lwen detrimental to the l est interests of the nation.” The allirmative was maintained by the Milwaukee team composed of Herbert Francis, Daniel Corcoran, and Edward Randall; the negative by our team consisting of L. I). Sparks, E. II. Miles, and (i. A. (resell. Both sides put up a strong debate. As usual, however, the better prepared team won. For months our representatives had made a careful study of the great labor problem. By hearty co-operation and untiring effort they had paved the way for victory. The charts prepared by them were undoubtedly the best and most effective ever used at the Normal. The unanimous decision of the judges for our team tells the story. With due regard to the members of both teams, special mention may justly l c made of Mr. Corcorans splendid effort to convince the judges, and of Mr. Gesell’s forceful attack and summary as closer for Stevens Point. 87Chronology Aug. 20.

The Choral Club The Normal Choral was organized in Oct., 1904, for the purpose of giving greater opportunity of music study to all students who are interested in the subject. Any student is eligible to meml ership who reads music fairly well, whose ear is true, and whose voice is of pleasant quality. The most capable and earnest members of the choral Club are eligible to become members of the Treble Clef and Glee Clubs of the future—these are smaller organizations for concerted work of women’s and men’s voices. Several standard and artistic works are to 1m studied each year, besides separate choruses from the l est composers. These are to Ik presented to the public in concerts, recital, rhetorieals, and other school events. The club aims to become one of the influences for broader culture in the school and the community. 47The Oratorical Association HIS year has been a busy one for the Oratorical Association. The first event was tlie local contest which was held on the ninth of February. Of the three contestants, Alta Sherman won the first place. The oration delivered was on “Beecher’s Message to Liverpool.” All was excitement and expectation until March the seventeenth. Then our joy knew no bounds for Stevens Point of the seven State Normals was awarded first honors. We enjoyed having with us about live hundred of the Wisconsin Normalitcs. The Plattcvillc Normal Band favored us with some pleasing numbers. About thirty from our Normal including some of the faculty and students accompanied our orator down to the Inter-State Oratorical Contest held in Milwaukee. The date was May the twelfth. Of the five states represented the judges decided in favor of Iowa. “The city and the System in American Politics” was the title of the oration. The other states ranked as follows:—Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, and Wisconsin. The school debate between the Milwaukee Normal and our Normal was held in the assembly room, May the fifth. The question was, “Resolved that the general ctl'cct of labor unions during the past twenty years has been detrimental to the best interests of the nation." Milwaukee opened the debate on tin affirmative; Loron Sparks, Emmett Miles, and Gerhard Gescll upheld the negative. The decision of the judges was unanimous for the latter. S. P. N. is proud of the good work done. At the business meeting of the League, Ellen lloll'man was elected secretary for the ensuing year. Alta M. Shcruian.

Martin. ► among It varied interests—something not In the prescribed courses—that gives an added zest and charm to college life. One of the characteristics of our S. P. N. Is its success In oratory and argumentation. This may be attributed to the fact that It maintains several literary societies to which belong the more ambitious and enterprising students of the school. 'Die work pursued in these societies is adapted to the peculiar needs and capacities of the members of the respective societies. The character of the work pursued in the Forum is designed to bo such as will equip its members to meet successfully the actual conditions to be found in the practical world with which they arc soon to be identified. It is not a musical organization but it aims to develop the power of easy expression and, by discussion, to keep its members conversant with the leading political and economic questions of the day. It accomplishes these aims by including in Its programs joint debates, impromptu speaking, declamations and lectures. Its member are also made familiar with parliamentary usage. The glory of an organization Is in direct proportion to its past achievements and tho we might with pride recount the mamy successes that have fallen to the lot of the Forum since its inception suffice it to speak of its immediate past. Since our last message, recorded in the Sum- ! mum ’01, success has followed where we have led. Like our national Senate, the Forum is a permanent body and what It member undertake one year is assiduously forwarded by member of the succeeding year. Therefore, when four years ago the Forum undertook to wrest the Wendell Phillips bust from their hereditary enemy, the Athenaeum, the idea of retaining it permanently by three successive victories resolved itself into a definite aim that prompted its members to bend every energy to the task of composing ultimate success. Finally, in June ’04. for the third successive time our debaters won a signal victory and the trophy now adorns the Forum room where it looks benignly down upon those who hold weekly conclave there. That success in inter-society debate did not blight our eiforts is amply shown by results this year. In the declamatory contest with the Arena and Athenaeum, the Forum members, Harold Martin and Howard Welty won first and second places, respectively. We contributed two members, G. M. Applcman and J. K. Sazama, to the Junior debating team that won at Oshkosh. loiter the mighty Milwaukee normalites wore vanquished by a team, two of whose members, L. I). Sparks and G. A. Gesell, were Forumites. Thus it is that the term Forum has come to have such magical significance, not by theatrical vaporing of what it can do, but by the practical training which its members, colloctivoly and individually, have received that enables them to " do the thing that they set out to do ’’ and which has constantly shown forth in results—the indices of success. The Forum ha a large enrollment, tho it has never had to resort to conscription to increase its membership. Neither is It a society where a few statcllites servo to exalt one or two members, but it is a homogeneous organization whose members bear the impress of spirit and progression, yet whose quiet self-possession and modesty stamp them as gentlemen. J. E. F.The achievements of the college-bred man may be said to be the sequel to what his college did for him. To “pass thru Nature to eternity ’ is not all of life; to complete the prescribed course is not all of school life. The number of degrees a man holds is not the index of his ability. His power to think, to organize, to execute, comes thru actual experience. The acquisition of this power to think is the end of many years of constant effort—the goal of college life. Such is tho chief object of College Literary Societies. There a student is encouraged to become a man among men. There his thought acquires a mature form, his opinion must 1m supported by reason, his expression must Ik such as wins recognition; and he must bo amenable to rules of conduct. Hence, Ihooffice of a literary society is to introduce tho student more nearly Into tho conditions he meets in life—opposition, restriction, criticism. This office the society should perform more fully than books, those secondhand stores of thought. The world is searching for the thinking man, he may be found in any good literary society. It is not our purpose to discuss the merits of societies In general, or to deprecate the demerits of a certain society, but to show wherein our society fulfills the obligations of an ideal Debating Society. Tho Athenaeum is the youngest of our three Normal societies. Its purposes do not differ from the ordluarv purpose—to train men to express themselves in the face of t opposition. Wo now have a society of over thirty members, twelve of whom have joined us during the year. Regular weekly mefWngs are held, and programs such as render the meeting interesting and attractive are presented. These programs being adapted to the capacity of individual members, are calculated to develop the power and person-ality of the society as a whole. We believe that every ideal society should lx in n sense a fraternal order, in that there should exist that feeling of unity, that consideration for fellow members and devotion to general interest which characterize the orders. Our society is a unit, our members work for each other and for the society, we are all proud of our society. A word as to the Athenaeum spirit. We do not believe that the efficiency of any society depends upon its name, nor upon that of any one of its members. We do not Ik--liovethat what some one or more of its members has done or is able to do determines the rank of a society. Furthermore, wo do not believe that egotism is the soul of loyalty; or that enthusiasm should be clothed in insolence toward all oulsido the society. Wo hold that the power of any society is measured by what it has done for each of its members toward rendering him a thoughtful, independent man and a gentleman. Is he critical yet considerate? enthusiastic but moderate? Is the idea that he and his society are not the “all-inclusive all" allowed to perch upon his banner in the moment of victory? Then his society has maintained a high standard: its aim has been accomplished. The Athenaeum has endured defeat sturdily, has enjoyed victory graciously. Our society has done much for all of us. Next to our Alma Mater we love our Athenaeum. . J. II. B.Athenaeum Presidents John K. More - Dan I . Ifuche Lin W. Nelaon Athenaeum Debaters KmniPi II. Mil E lw. J. Math - J. Howard Browne T.

The mcmlicrs have worked as a unit towards its advancement, and all may look haek with pride on the work whieh it has accomplished. It was an Arena girl who won the Inter-Normal Oratorical Contest. Another of the momlierx of the Arena carric l oil' honors at the Inter-Society Declamatory Contest. The Arena did its share in winning the Oshkosh debate. In fact in every school interest the Arena has taken an active part, either in itself winning laurels for the S. 1 N., or in cheering others on to victory. A part of the work of the year, to whieh all the “Arenaites" may turn with satisfaction, is tin increased power which the society as a whole has gained in debate and in impromptu speaking. The Arena has worked in harmony throughout the year with tin other literary societes of the school, visiting each to hear its literary and business programs, and then in turn receiving the Forum and Athenaeum at a regular meeting. Although the Arena has been so devoted to its work, nevertheless it has not neglected the social side of life. A part of every program has been given to music, stories or other amusement. It has given a rccc| -tion to the other literary societies of the school, at which it provided ample amusement. The meml»ers of the society as a whole have gained much by their work in the Arena during the year, lrnth in acquiring self-reliance and a broader knowledge of parliamentary practice. Those meml»ers who leave the school this June, part from the Arena with regret and extend to it their l»est wishes for the coining year. Q. j. Qm 57y. w. e. a. The Young Women ’ Christian Association was organized December 9, 1902, and as yet feels very young when compared with the other three societies. However we feel that we are growing, and if the students, societies and faculty continue to extend the C O • courtesies that they have during the past year, we hope that the day will not be distant when the school shall feel that we are doing some little part to help carry the Purple and the Gold to the heights beyond. Our society has its annual election the latter part of April, and during the past year we have taken several steps ahead. Some of them we report as follows: 1. Printed slips sent through the office to new students. 2. Committees work at the trains to welcome and help new students. 3. Hand-books distributed. •I. Reception given to the school. 5. Delegate sent to Geneva Conference. 6. Kxhibit of posters and other work sent to the Conference. 7. Bible study work started. 8. Cabinet members an entertained. 9. Posters systematized. 10. The new room which was given the society has been partly arranged. 11. One hundred twenty-five banners made and sold. 12. A strong spirit of co-operation, of hope, and of good courage prevails among the girls which promises better things yet to come. my. w. e. a Kurils K. Mrinkr Kurils O. Taylor LUs It. Kimball Edilb M.

Mr. Hughes had held first place on the high jump in the interstate meets for some time with a record of 5 ft. 9$ in. His being unable to win first place in this meet and also to break his own previous record of 5 ft. 9 in. was due to the extremely poor condition of the grounds. At the Athletic meet at Milwaukee Samuel Wadleigh also did credit to our Normal School and to our state by winning second place on the pole vault, the first place living won by Iowa, at 10 ft.

Kveraon Bar Br ur Situ Wadletcb Eugene Hein Emmett Mile Ralph Ifurly Harold Culver Ix ron Spark  On the banks of the Lacrossa, In a forest quite secluded, Near the falls of Troutulanta, Lived an old time Indian chieftain, With his daughter, Wawaholla. He was proud of what he'd taught her, Tlcased to know that she was happy. She had never left his camp-fire, She had seen no other person Hut her father the old chieftain. Through her life of eighteen summers. “ Knt th f»lU of Trout l»nl»." She had listened to the wiid-birds In the trees there in the forest; She had watched the fishes frolic. Watched them jump up in the moonlight, Try to pass the rushing waters Of the falls of Troutalanta. She had plucked the dainty wild-flowers, To be found within the woodland. Thus she lived in sweet contentment, All was peace and she was happy. A Wisconsin Legend One day in the merry springtime, Came a warrior who was hunting, Haweola, tall and handsome, A young brave from out the Northland, When he reached the chieftain’s camp ground, He paused in much surprise and wonder, For beyond the forest tangle, With the sunset all about her, Listening to the murmuring water, Stood the lovely Wawahella. Long he gazed in silent wonder, At the maiden there before him, She, unconclous he was near her Till sho turned her toward the wigwam, Then she heard him, saw him, shouted; Sho was thrilled throughout her being, All excitement, all a tremble. At her sound from out the wigwam. Came the chieftain, wildly anxious ; looked he llrst upon his daughter, Then upon the bold, young hunter. Then he grew most sudden wratful. Thundered loud upon the warrior,— "Ix ave this peaceful place, you sncakling! Never dare to let me see you Show yourself within this forest. Go into the farthest Northland, Go, we never more would see thee!” Then came gloomy days and long ones, For the maiden, Wawahella, For new thoughts her heart had kindled Strange new thoughts but very tender Toward the stranger, Haweola;Before her alwu.VH sho behold him, Haweola, the young: hunter. How she longed for his returning. But, no, sho did not wish it cither, For she knew full well her father Would slay him if he came to see her. Oft she pondered in the night-time. As she watched the moonlit waters Pass the fulls of Troutulanta, Watching there and always thinking Of the bravo, young Haweola. One night as she thus sat and pondered, Crept her warrior from the forest, And in whispers thus ho murmured,— “Comewith mo thou lovely princess, Come, my Day-star do not tarry, Fly with mo, now and forever, Quick, before your father wnketh ; I have thought of you by day-time. I have dreamed of you by night-time, Kvor since I tlrst beheld you, Here within this somber forest.” Dazed and mute w-us Wawahclla, All her answer was but warning. As she turned from Haweola, Turned from all she has been wishing, Turned into her father's wigwam Turned and left young Haweola. Many moons had passed and summer Came again to greet the forest, Greet the wigwam of the chieftain, By tho falls of Troutalanta. Ever northward gazed the maiden, Gazed—but never told tho reason. Gazed she on the hills far distant, And she saw upon the summit Of the highest mound a rock-house, Not built by man, but placed by nature. For this rock she felt enchantment, Which she herself did understand not; Hut she felt a satisfaction, As she thought of Haweola. When the haze of Indian summer Settled o'er tho leafy forest, Haweola left the Northland Went to claim his Wawahella, For the Spirit brought tho message Took away all secret doubting, Said that he should claim his Day-star Lono and lovely Wawahella. Long he journeyed from the Northland, ■ touched the falls of Troutalanta. It was night and tho old time chieftain, Was asleep before his camp-fire, Thero from out the quiet woodland Cautiously crept young Haweola, To the wondering Wawahella. “ Wilt thou fly with mo my princess, Fly to the rock there on the hill top, That shall be our castle-wigwam, And there thou shalt be my young queen; Come, O, come, my Wawahella. I have yonder in the forest Ponies swift as the spent arrow From the tightly twisted bow string. Wilt thou tarry when I love thee ? ” Wawahella nearly fainted, “ No,” she murmured, " Quick brave warrior,Fly for If my father seeth, He will kill thee without mercy. I cannot tell you now the reason, Hut I will when we are safely Housed within our castle yonder.” Then they flew on through the darkness. Mile on mile they sped most quickly. Till at length they reached the summit Of their hill and then their rock-house. There they lived content and happy, Lived In peacefulness and quiet: For the place was wild and lonely, There no redman ever found them. Four long centuries have passed, Sinco the flight of Huwcoln With his princess, Wuwahella ; Still the tiny stream Lncrossa, Leaps the falls of Troutalanta ; Far upon the distant hill top, Stands the stately, massive rock-pile, Castle-Hock of ancient era. CuU« Bock." In the pleasant summer evenings, Ah the purple base grows deeper And the twilight gathers gently, And the distant rock grows dimmer, On the western summer sky, Many mothers tell their children The crude and simple Indian legend, Of the princess Wawahella, Of the stalwart Huweola ; Of the days now far remote. —Welty. 7STo My Arbutus Oh pale sweet scented floweret, The harbinger of Spring, Thou art a tiny blossom But many a blessing bring. You wake our hearts to gladness, Kind deeds you do inspire; And from communion with you Our thoughts are lifted higher. When I from thee am parted, Am far, yes, far away; Oh come and breath a fragrance Of friendship’s loyalty. 71Rn Indian Soliloquy My curly days, my mother has told me, were spent much as the early days of other children of my tribe, swinging in my cradle hung on a bending birch, rocked to and fro by the passing breezes. The rustling leaves sang my lullaby and the grasses whispered to me secrets of the wilds. As I older grew I engaged in the sports of tavhood, trying all feats of skill and daring; till, as years passed by, there were none among the tribe so swift of foot, so keen of eye, so fearless. Through the forest oft 1 chased the Hoeing deer and with my bended bow sped an arrow thru its quivering heart. Down the rushing river my bark canoe I steered and I laughed to see the hungry waves lap over it, I skirted the green meadows and the waves bore me to the ocean. I feared naught and with my strong right arm guided my canoe to safety. I was wont to stand above the dashing falls and spear the fish on their sea-ward journey. No pony was so wild but on his back securely I could ride and chase the bull'alo across the western prairie. Winncnama, a fair maiden, dwelt in a wigwam sheltered by the forest. Hound about her home the wild rose clambered and the morning glory clung with twining tendrils to the door-way. Before the wigwam danced a dimpling river and sparkled on its way to the sea. The doves built round her home, and every bird and beast knew her as a friend. None could tame my wild heart but she. Long and faithfully I wooed my Winnenama till her father, a brave warrior, promised me his daughter for my bride. Happily the women of the tribe prepared the wedding feast; and guests, invited from afar, assembled for the morrow. Through the forest I took my way to Winnenama’s wigwam. Across my path the gray squirrel whisked and scampering to the tree top chattering in glee. The thrush in the thicket poured forth a joyful song, and all things vied with me in happiness. When suddenly I heard a rustling before me as a deer breaking through the branches. I strung my bow and aimed an arrow to the opening in the pathway, and as tin branches parted, shot. Oh, that I ne’er had gained my bowman’s skill, for the arrow sped true and pierced the heart of Winnenama. Before her lover’s eyes her life’s blood poured out. And now beneath the whispering grass she sleeps, the rustling leaves sing her everlasting lullaby. The forest moans and the soughing pine trees sob. The doves coo mournfully o’er her grave and all the wild is silent. Weep on, O, Forest, for Winnenama is no more. 75 G. C.Circumstances Alter Cases It was u hot day early in August. The bees hummed drowsily around the nasturiums in the window-boxes, and the leaves of the grape-vine that shaded the veranda hung limp and drooping. The little Scotch terrier lay panting on the steps. Mrs. Lee and the girls sat in their neat shirt waist suits on the wide veranda of a large, old fashioned house such as one often sees in the country. They were either sewing or reading, and looked cool and comfortable. No one had spoken for a short interval. Isabel was gazing to where the long stretch of woods grew indistinct in the distance. “I shall never marry any one unless I love him,” said she irrelevantly, laying down her magazine. Esther raised her head lazily from among the hammock cushions and said, “How you startled me. Love and marriage,—such sentiments aren’t good for hot days,” and she settled back again. “Little Isabel is waxing sentimental,” said Dot roguishly. Dot had seen seventeen only a month earlier than Isabel, but knowing that Isabel wished to appear grown up, she delighted in teasing her. “I don’t care if you do make fun of me. That's right anyway, isn’t it, Aunt Carrie?” “Bless you, child,” said Mrs. Lee, “Of course it is as far as it goes, but you also want to love the man you marry.” “Well, isn’t that the same thing?” demanded Isabel, flushing. “Too deep for me,” said Both who had been listening much amused. “Let’s change the subject. Here, Isabel, finish this seam for me and cease thinking such useless thoughts. You won’t need to decide on motives for at least a few months.” “You are all laughing at me, but this article in Thk Cosmopolitan says that American girls are so mercenary, and that the majority of them marry for money. I don’t believe it’s so; and just to prove my belief, I am going to ask each one of you what your opinion is. I think it is fair to judgo by us; we are average American girls, aren’t we?” “Quite average, I hope,” said Beth smiling. "But begin with yourself. How about you?” “You know what I think,” said Isabel, with dignity. “I just said I’d never marry for money.” “You don’t need to,” put in Leone who had not spoken before. “Anyone whose father left them three or four steel mills doesn’t need to do much of anything unless she wants to.” A frown passed over Isabel’s pretty face. “Well, if I didn’t have a thing in the world, I’d still hold to my views. Leone is cross. Now Beth what do you think?” “I think as you do,chicken. Your idea is right there, if we do laugh at you, and mother thinks so too,” and she rested her head against Mrs. Lee’s knee. “Esther?” queried Isabel. “O, don’t bother me, I’m so tired. Arc you still on the love topic? Yes, of course, I’m for love; it’s much jollier, and now do lot me sleep for five consecutive minutes,” and Esther closet! her eyes in pretended weariness. “What do you think, Miss Dot Dorothy Lee?” demanded the questioner. “Well, it’s a weighty question, but I reason as follows: A love story is much nicer than a non-love story; hence a love life must be nicer than a non-love life. I know nothing from experience, I wish you to understand,” she finished severely. “I wouldn’t confess to it,” said Esther, the flirt. 76“And Leone, what do you think?” “I wish you hadn't asked me,” said the girl. She laydown her work and tilted her head somewhat defiantly. “I know I shall shock you all, but if I don't marry for money, I shall at least sec to it that I contrive to fall in love with a man who has it. You girls needn’t think I am mercenary. All my life I have never had half the things I wanted. I have had to work my wav thru college, and never had things like other girls, and next year I must go out to teach while you girls will enter society nnd enjoy yourselves. I am just tired of poverty and I won’t endure it any longer than I can help, and I don’t see why I can’t Ik? as good a wife to a rich man as to a poor one, and so I say I shall marry for money, if I can.” “Wait and see,” said her aunt kindly, “Leone knows not of what she speaks.” “My point is carried anyway,” said Isabel. “Five for, and one against. Leone, you are on the losing side; you’d better---” “ Don’t quarrel with Leone, dear. Here comes the mail man,” said Mrs. Lee, rising, “and he has some letters for us.” The postman handed her a letter which bore a spo-cial delivery stamp. Un-womanlikc, she immediately tore it open without a preparatory examination of the postmark. The girls wnltcd in silence while she read. “O, girls, wo are to have a young man — a young Harvard man — here for supper.” “For supper?” “Who •• Th ilsotlDc rays of the nun c»»t tone »badow wtuu the road." is he?” “Where is ho from?” and a dozen like questions assailed Mrs. Lee. Even Esther who was deep in the perusal of a note from one of her many admirers, paused to listen. “Ills name is Kalph Westings; he is a son of Mrs. Van Dyne's old school friend. The letter is from Mrs. Van Dyne, and she says he is a fine young man, that he will be here on the five o’clock to-night, and that she wishes us to give him a good time.” “Is that the rich Mrs. Van Dyne of New York, aunt Carrie?” “Yes, Leone, and Kalph Westings must be the son of the great banker, James A. Westings. He will be accustomed to every luxury. How I wish we were at Glen View. This place is so primitive. And, girls, what shall we do? Jane went home this morning, sick, and she is the only person I can rely on to serve a good dinner; Kate is only fit to wash dishes. I sec no wav out of it but I shall have to be cook, myself. ” “Let us help you,” cried all the girls in chorus. They set about their tasks with a great show of industry, but as they worked they grew hot and tired, and as is always the ease, things did not move smoothly. Ii was nearly five when Mrs. Leo said she wished she had some flowers for the tabie. Leono knew where some lovely goldenrod grew. She threw on Jane's sunbonnet and started on her half mile walk down the 77dusty road. The slanting rays of the sun cast long shadows across the path, but the evening was not yet far enough advanced to cool the heated air. Grasshoppers whirred out of the parched grass as Leone walked on. White headed dandelions scattered their fairy seeds as her skirts brushed against them. At the turn of the road grew tho graceful goldcnrod— whole seas of it, rippling like a whoatflold in the wind. She throw her sunbonnet over her arm and began to gather the feathery sprays. As she gathered, she sang in her sweet young voice the refrain of some old and dear familiar tune which showed her happy mood. Her back was to the road. “Pardon me for disturbing you; but can you direct me to Valley Farm, Mrs. Lee's summer home?” Leone turned with llushed cheeks and wind-blown hair to sec before her a tall, slender young man—handsome, with such a pleasant face. “You wish to find Valley Farm? I am from there. You must be Kalph Westings whom Mrs. Lee has been expecting ’ “Yes; and you are------?” “Leone Fordycc, Mrs. Lee's niece. I would shake hands, but---" and she glanced suggestively at the feathery mass in her arms. “Lot mo carry it for you,” he begged. “I left my luggage at the depot and so have nothing with me. I am very fond of goldcnrod. This is tho most beautiful I have ever seen,” he said as sho surrendered her golden burden to him. “How was it that you had to come from the station alono? Mrs. Lee sent Esther with the trap.” “I saw no young lady. There is no chance for an accident ?” he asked in slight alarm. “O, no, Esther is a fine horsewoman.’’ They walked together down the dusty road with its lengthening shadows, seared grass and oxeye daisies, and as they walked and chatted of athletics and sports, Leone noticed his wavy brown hair and merry blue eyes. As they came up the walk, Mrs. Lee and the girls came out on tho veranda to welcome the guest and make apologies for tho delinquency of Esther who could now be seen coming up the road. The girls were all dressed for dinner in their pretty lawns and organdies, and Leone whispered to Mrs. Lee, “Auntie, please let me wait on table. You have no one else, and I havo no pretty dross to wear. Please let me.” Somehow she was ashamed to appear before this young man of fashion in her plain dress. Open hearted Isabel heard the request and said, “Leone, dear, wont you please wear my blue dimity? You would look so sweet in that.” Never before had Leone’s pride been so tractable. After a slight hesitancy, sho accepted the offer and soon she appeared, bewitching fair, in the airy, Huffy dress. The guest appeared a moment later and tho his baggage had come, instead of a dress-suit, he wore the same black coat in which he came, Mrs. Lee afterward remarked that like most wealthy young men he probably had some idiosyncrasy and his must be simplicity in dress, for never in the time that they knew him did his appearance bear any of those little touches that mark the young man of fashion. Mrs. Lee led the way into the dinning room with much perturbation. If only things went off smoothly. Kate was not accustomed to serving and she might make some serious mistake, but it could not be helped. And her greatest fear was that her big Irish maid-of-all work would become too loguacious and monopolize the conversation. She had repeatedly instructed Kate not to speak while in the dinning-room. Hardly had they seated themselves when Kate appeared with the soup and Mrs. Lee sighed with relief when no accident occured, but she noted with some amusement that Kate’s lips were tightly pressed 78together for fear some chance remark might escape her. The salad courso was uneventful, and Mrs. Lee began to breatho more easily. The girls tried to interest their guest by speaking of fashionable events which he must have attended—tennis tournaments, boat races, cross country hunts, and the like, but he was obliged to confess his ignorance of them all. They were surprised: but Mr. Westings said he had never had much of an opportunity for amusements, tho he had been often asked to visit with classmates. as his studies kept him so busy. He had been studying all summer, and had just comedown for a three weeks rest. He was intending to stay with the village minister, a distant relative of his mother’s. Suddenly a terrifying shriek came from somewhere kitchenward and a high pitched voice could be plainly heard, “Och, you dirty spalpeen. Git out o’ here you hathen baste.” and the clatter was something deafening. In rushed Kate, sleeves rolled up, a black streak across her face, and hair awry, “Oh, Missus I ?c, that dawg o’ Miss Ksth-hers has just run off with that foinc goose ye roasted for dinner, and I hit him with the pokor, I did, but the baste only-run the fasther." Amid shrieks of uncontrollable laughter from the girls, Mrs. Leo excused herself, and pushing Kate before her, went out to survey the wreckage, but tho goose was irretrievably lost. Shortly she re-appeared with a dish of prepared meat, and as she set it down, Dot remarked mischievously. “Don’t you think, mamma, that we could write a good recommendation for Libby’s prepared cold tongue? Always ready at a moment's notice." Again they laughed, and things went on smoothly. As Kate brought on tho dessert, they were talking of dogs and horses. Catching tho drift of the conversation and forgetting all admonitions, she leaned on the back of Isabels's chair and called across to Italph Westings in her rich brogue: “It is dawgs ye are talkin’ about? Did ye iver hear the stoary of Mickey O'Finnegan’s dawg? That was a wuntherful baste, and----" "Kate:” said Mrs. Lee frowning, “I wish some cool water immediately.” “Vis, Missus Lee," said Kate coolly, “in a minute. Hut Mickey O'Finnegan’s dawg-----" “Immediately,” commanded Mrs. Leo. Kate seemed to remember herself, and retreated greatly abashed amidst another burst of laughter. “The fates seem against me today. My regular servant is ill, and this is Kate's flrst and last appearance in the dining room," said Mrs. Lee decidedly. “Don't scold her, Mrs. Lee.” said Ralph. “Really, she quite interested me. I am very curious about Mickey O’Finne-gan's dawg." And the party rose from the table in rare good humor. Mrs. Lee was the only one who did not seem to appreciate tho fun. What would that exclusive Mr. Westings think of her household arrangemcHts?” All during the evening that followed, and during the boating, driving, and tennis of the following weeks, Mr. Westings preference for Leone's society was noticeable. The girls often teased her about it, but she would only smile and look pleased. She liked him. and his attentions were very satisfying. All of the girls liked him and would have been glad to have been in her place. “Leone is following out her views. She is seeing to it that she falls in love with a rich young man,” said Isabel one day. “Nonsense,” Leone answered, flushing, “One person can’t look at another without your talking foolishness.” “Are you so sure he is rich, girls ?” asked Both, the practical. He never refers to his wealth in any way, and he doesn’t know much of society life.” “You wouldn’t expect him to publish his financial affairs on the housetops, would you ?” said Leone, hotly. “And ho is much too busy with his studies to be nothing but a butterfly. Of course he is rich,” she finished with conviction. The three weeks were nearly ended, and Ralph had only two days yet to stay. That night Leone cried herself to sleep and tried to convince herself that she wept becauso her vacation was so nearly over and her work days so near at hand. The day before Ralph left had boon set aside for a picnic, and the party started early in the morning for Star Lake. All that day Leone was the gayest of the gay, and it was not until evening, as they were walking back, that Ralph had a chance to see her alone. The others had gono on ahead, and these two loitered over the short half mile walk. At first they were silent. Leone's gayety had left her. Ralph spoke and his voice was very earnest, “I never enjoyed myself so much in all my lifo as I have these last three weeks. You have all been so kind to me, and I am so sorry to leave.” Mrs. Leo will be glad to hear you say that, and will wish you might make a longer visit,” said Leone. “But how about you, Leone?” “Wo girls will all bo sorry to see you go,” said sho evasively. “Wc girls,” ho repeated, “But I want to know about you. Will you miss me even a little, Leone?” “That's not a fair question,” she said lightly, and she looked up at him playfully, but swiftly dropped her glance, as she read what was in his eyes. “No, that’s not a fair question, but I shall ask you one that is. I love you, dear, and I want you to care forme. Do you think you ever could? Leone, look at mo." “I do like you,” she said with face still averted. “Is that all ?” he asked anxiously. “But then what can I expect; you scarcely know me, Leone,” and by this time he had possession of her hand, “could you ever love me?” “I think I love you now,” said sho raising her eyes and looking at him bravely. His face lighted with swift joy. And as they verified the truth in each others eyes, his asked permission, hers granted and in a moment she was in his arms and his lips were on hers. Then with his arm around her they walked back thru the twilight woods, over the springy carpet of pine needles thinking only of each other. The sound of voices warned them that the party were waiting at the edge of the woods. Ralph bent and whispered, “Sweetheart, tomorrow before I go, I shall come to tell you all al out myself and my affairs. Then we'ell discuss ways and means and be practical, but now I am going to go off by myself to dream of you and be thankful for my great good fortune.” “I am the fortunate one, Ralph. You kuow I havo no fortune at all.” 80“I know, dear. We shall have to wait. I, too, am very----” “Hurry up- you two,” called Dot who was coming to meet them. “Did you get lost ?” “Yes," said Leone, “and we never would have found the way if it hadn't been for your blithe laugh being a sort of beacon light before us.” “What do you think of that for a mixed figure?’’ asked Dot, turning to Ralph. She took Leone’s arm and they joined the ladies at the edge of the woods. Leone’s joy was too new and sweet to be shared with anyone as yet. and so she went quietly to her room, keeping her secret hidden behind her happy eyes. In the morning as the girls were sitting on the veranda, Leone announced gravely: “ Murder will out. Girls, I am engaged.” “That’s nothing,” said Esther, “ when I was twenty I had been engaged six times." “ Hut this is serious,” said Leone with importance, as she noted the interest in her hearers' faces. “Say, is it Ralph Westings?” asked Dot and Isabel at once. “It is,” said Leone impressively. “And so ho was in earnest,” said Ksther curiously. “Of course ho was, and he is coming to sec mo again this afternoon just before he goes.” “Congratulations, dear,” said Beth, “he certainly is a nice boy.’’ “And so you are going to marry for money after all,” said Isabel, disappointed, “I did hope you would fall in love with a poor man and marry him In spite of his poverty. It would bo more romantic. Do you lovo him, Leone?” “Well, I like him pretty well,” she suid Hushing. Then as she heard Mrs. Lee coining, “Don’t tell auntie yet, I want to tell her myself all alone.” Up tho road came the station hack and stopped at the gate. Out stop| ed a very fashionable middle aged lady. “Mrs. Van Dyne,” exclaimed Mrs. Loc and her three daughters, going down the steps to meet her. Isabel and Ix one waited until they were presented. Mrs. Van Dyne had just decided that morning that she would come over from her summer resort and spend the afternoon with Mrs. Lee. She had a way of dropping in unexpectedly, which was decidedly inconvenient at times. “Well, girls,” said she, “flow do you like Ralph Westings?” “We all like him very much,” said Dot, who was Mrs. Van Dyne’s favorite, “and some of us, very much indeed,” and she looked pointedly at Leone. “Well, I am so glad you were nice to him. Poor boy, he has had so few good times in his life.” “Why, said Mrs. Lee, “isn’t he the son of Mr. Westings, the banker?” “No, indeed. Where did you get that idea? His father died bankrupt when ho was sixteen, and he has had to support his invalid mother ever since. He deserves every credit, for he has worked his way thru college in spite of it all. I have offered him help often, but he is so proud he will never accept it.” “Is that true,” said Mrs. Lee, “that is quite a surprise for us, for we supposed him to be very wealthy, but we all think him a fine young man. Wouldn’t you like to see the new summerhouse?” As tho two ladies went off down the walk, the girls ull turned to Leone whoso face was very flushed and heated, but whoso lips were closed very tightly. si“I)ld you ever!' said Beth weakly. "What are you going to do about it?” asked Dot. curiously. “Do? Why, there is only one thing for me to do.” “Throw: him over, of course,” said Esther with conviction. “No, Indeed. I respect him more now than ever for his courago and for what he has done in spite of his poverty. He is just splendid, and I am proud of him. Do you suppose 1 would throw him over because he isn’t rich? Why, neither am I,” and she finished with tears in her eyes. “Woll, talk of inconsistency----” began Esther amazed. “Leono’ heart is in the right place, anyway,” said Beth kindly. "I held my breath for a minute to see how she would take it.” “But,” said Dot, “didn’t he say he was rich? Didn’t lie deocivo you?” "Never,” said Leone, quick to defend, “wo were the ones that always said that. You know we noticed that he did not seem to know anything of society life. We just took it for granted that he had a fortune,” and she smiled thru her tears. “It happened just as I wanted it to,” said Isabel, enthusiastically. “Loono was forced to foreswear her convictions when Cupid appeared.” "O, horo comes our young man up the walk now, Leono. Anyway he is nice enough to make up for his want of ducats,” said Dot comfortingly. “If you didn’t like him so well, I think I’d take pity on him myself.” And amid the merry blessings of her cousins, Ix«ono went down the path in the bright summer sunshino to meet her lover, and as she saw the glad welcome in his eyes she was glad she had chosen ns sho did.
