Farewell ! we breathe in whispers low, Farewell, farewell! for we must go To face, the blast; ’tis hard, altho The thought of thee brings strength we know.President Pra.y Mr. Pray began lais educational work in Wisconsin In 1872, as teacher of mathematics and vice-principal of Wayland Academy at Beaver Dam. During the thirty-four years since that time he has won promotion from one position to another and has steadily broadened the field of his influence. In 1877 he resigned the position at Beaver Dam to take the principalship of the high school at Tomah. where he remained for three years. From Tomah he went back to Beaver Dam as principal of the high school, leaving there in 1881 to accept the position of teacher of mathematics and civics in the Whitewater Normal School. In 1888 he became institute conductor for Whitewater, and served the slate in that capacity until 1894, when he came to Stevens Point as president of the sixth normal school of Wisconsin. Besides the regular service here described. Mr. Pray has been Identified with many other educational interests in Wisconsin, and has borne many responsibilities for which the public is indebted to him. By the resignation of Dr. Stearns in January, 1885. Whitewater Normal School was loft without a president, and Mr. Pray was called upon to act in that capacity until the Close of the year. From 1S86-S8 he had charge of the mathematical department of the Wisconsin Journal or Education, and before and since that time has made contributions to its columns. For three years he acted as a member of the State Board of Examiners, whose duties are to determine by examination the qua t ideal ions of applicants for the state diploma. During the past twenty-five years he has missed but three meetings of the State Teachers’ Association, and was. In 1893, president of that association. The chronology of this period of public service can thus bo briefly told, but It Is not so easy to estimate the effects of the work of these years. As academy professor and high school prinicpal, he came into direct relation with hundreds of young people. Many more hundreds of teachers came to know him as institute conductor, and through these teachers the energizing effects of his influence passed on to thousands of children gathered in the district schools throughout the state. Then came the opportunity for still greater professional usefulness,—an opportunity that has no equal in imi ortance,—that of carrying out his ideals of a training school for teachers, and through that school to multiply many times and to deepen by many degrees the influence already so potent in Wisconsin. The school was established: nnd. while in courses of study and general management it has differed little from other similar schools, it has an individuality, traceable directly to the man at its head, who has selected its faculty and shaped its policy for twelve years. When an attempt is made to analyze Mr. Pray's traits of character and to discover (he secret of his success as a public man, the characteristic that calls for first recognition Is his yenuinent . The public is not slow to recognize nnd approve this quality, and is equally intolerant of its opposite. In this "public,” students of all ages are included. It Is an immeasurcable good for a body of young people to come into contact day after day with a man free from any trace of affectation, cant, or hypocrisy; to breath the atmosphere of a school where "Sunday manners and morals" for visitors or Inspectors is thought to he dishonest, and where the highest possible daily standard of work and conduct is considered ail that is necessary. Such experiences influence character and result in more genuine manhood and womanhood. In this school self-government has always been practiced, but there has been no formal organization. To accomplish desired ends, little has been done besides making com in on-sense appeals to people who are expecting to control themselves. During the first year of the school it was somewhat difficult to impress these ideas of school management upon a body of students used to external control, and expecting it: but afterwards there was always a sufficient contingent of old students to exert a supporting influence and make the practice easily successful. The warm sympathy and support which Mr. Pray has from the alumni and students of all classes is the natural response to the deep interest felt by him in each one of them. We feel sure that hundreds of men and women in our state, who have at some time known him. and doubly sure that all wearers of the "purple and gold" Join with us in extending to Mr. Pray our best wishes for continued success. MARY D. BRADFORD.Remembrances A PERSONAL TRIBUTE. One evening more than twelve years ago, the conductor of a teachers’ institute and the state high school inspector, who hud l een visiting the former’s classes, went out Main Street and walked around upon the foundations of a new normal school that was just coming into being. A goodly building seemed promised, but the two men agreed that the task of creating the school would be far more difficult than that of erecting tin building. Neither then knew that either would be specially interested in the new project. Later, however, they did return and worked together, one as president and tin other as institute conductor, in the foundation of the school; the former always at home, planning, guiding, directing, the other frequently in the field, carrying information about the new school and executing the plans of his chief. Only I, who willingly seconded his activities, can appreciate the wisdom and excellence of Mr. Pray’s designs, the tact and resourcefulness of his nature. It was as difficult a task as ever faced a man. for the new school was not everywhere welcome, its location was openly criticised, and some leaders in neighboring schools were distinctly unfriendly. Through all these manifold difficulties Mr. Pray guided the new school with a skill, gentleness and conservatism that disarmed the criticism of enemies, won the support of strangers and taught the state that a school could he created at Stevens Point; that it could outstrip others in point of attendance and yet not antagonize them. For more than six years I saw the school grow in numbers and take its place among the best of the normals,—a recognized influence in the educational affairs of the state. Since leaving the institution I have watched as well as 1 could from a distance, the continuous development of tin great school, and though its students are now nearly all strangers to ine, yet I f el sure that the spirit of loyalty that characterized the early years is as strong as ever, and that the same devotion to right professional principles still endures. To the man who created the school and directed its growth to tin present time, the state owes a debt it can never pay. Spotless character, unquestionable integrity of purpose even in minute things, unobtrusive helpfulness, undemonstrative but hearty sympathy in every good work,—such were the traits that endeared to us all the man who now leaves the stewardship. The hundreds of students everywhere, tin faculty members, the citizens of Stevens Point, will not forget the strong personality that molded the institution, and new students will feel it for a long time to come. To take up and carry on a work so nobly begun is an honor to any man, and, without a doubt, Mr. Pray’s successor will tind that true students show their appreciation of past teaching by their loyalty to the new. C. II. SYLVESTER. Mrs. Mary 1). Bradford «To Mrs. Bradford. At the close of this school year but six of Mr. Pray’s original faculty remain at Stevens Point, and Mrs. Bradford will not return to the school in the fall. At such a time one’s thoughts naturally turn to those Autumn days when the Normal opened, and the three teachers of the Model School were confronted by the curious ag£reKat'on children who had been sent into the new institution. To properly classify so strange a company, who varied no less in age and physical development than they did in mental culture, was the work of days. But almost immediately the three departments were differentiated and Mrs. Bradford, Miss Quinn and Miss Faddis began their sympathetic labors with the youngsters assigned to them. To one whose work involved daily observation of the rooms of those three notable teachers, there is cause for wonder, even to this day, at the ready solution of difficulties, the rapid extension of influence and the hearty response from the confused and embarrassed children. No more inspiring lessons were ever seen by pupil-teachers than came out of those early days, and their influence has been felt in a hundred different communities. The children themselves, now grown to manhood and womanhood, all carrying their own burdens and reaping the rewards of their own exertions, will understand how sincere and earnest was the teaching they received. Changes come in every school, and later Mrs. Bradford, who had established her skill as a teacher in the High School at Kenosha, before she came to the Normal School, was chosen for the vacancy created by the resignation of the first Teacher of Methods. Here the experience she had gained in the years while herself a teacher in the Model School, enabled her to recognize at a glance the difficulties of the Practice Teachers, and to assist them not only in planning their work, but also in carrying it out in their classrooms. While her influence as an Institute Conductor has extended to the remotest corners of the State, it has never been felt outside in the same vital way as by those students who have fallen under her daily influence for months and have realized the intelligent comprehension, the broad sympathy, and the marvelous power for work which characterize her. Now, as she severs her connection with the school, there is a feeling of deep regret in the heart of everybody who remains behind. Wherever her lines may be placed, the teachers and the pupils, old and new, will join in a hearty wish that she may have the strength and courage to do the same good work she has done here, and that other friends may take the place of the hundreds sin- leaves behind.Mrs. M ry D. Bradford 'O ALL who have been ns teachers, pupils, or patrons connected with the Stevens Point Normal School, and especially to all who aro looking forward to a continuation of such connection, the resignation of Mrs. Bradford from Its faculty Is a matter of great regret, and wo wish to express here our wannest appreciation of her educational work, of her personality, character and Influence. Mrs. Bradford began teaching at the age of sixteen near her childhood home in the vicinity of Kenosha. Neither then nor at any time since did she make the mistake of considering her own education complete, but while teaching In the country schools she pursued the Kenosha High School course as student. When she had thus become prepared for grade teaching in Kenosha she took up the Oshkosh Normal course as student, and when through that she had prepared for and obtained a position as High School assistant in Kenosha, she still pushed her own higher education by means of summer courses at Madison University and Saturday courses at Chicago University. Thus sho became able, before taking a still higher position to obtain the state diploma upon examination before the board in 1894. This same eagerness for broader preparation and greater self-culture has characterized her since she came to this school. Through summer work in Clark University, she made intimate acquaintance with Hr. Stanley Hall’s thought and method In education. Another summer in the east brought her under the instruction of Dean Southwick of the Emerson School of Boston, and through her power to appreciate the best within her sphere of contact and to win the appreciation of the best, was brought to us the delightful opportunity of two evenings with Dean Southwick. That Mrs. Bradford has kept abreast of the new education Is demonstrated in her recently published course of study for the grades. While thoroughly practical and tested in every point by actual application, it embodies the most advanced educational ideas, and will doubtless have extensive influence toward the better organization and modernization of elementary work in the state. Mrs. Bradford is known not only through schoolroom work in Kenosha and Stevens Point but has served on important committees of the State Association, read strong papers before that association, and written considerable for educational Journals, having recently taken charge of a department In the Wisconsin Journal of Education, but she is perhaps most widely known through her institute work, having had more calls to this work than she had weeks to give to it in her summers. One who has known Mrs. Bradford throughout her career says of her work in his native town. "Her influence on her pupils was very strong and always in the right direction, and shows plainly its impress on their characters. No teacher ever exerted a broader and better influence in the Kenosha schools than did Mary D. Bradford. I know I reflect truthfully the sentiment of the people of Kenosha.” And we do not hesitate to add that this is equally applicable to her work and influence during the last twelve years In the Stevens Point Normal. Very few of the hundreds of students who have come under her inspiring helpful direction during these twelve years will fail to look upon their work with her as a great opportunity and one of the vivifying formative influences in their lives. With a power of application and execution seldom equalled, with a man’s clearness and force of Intellect, Mrs. Bradford combines in plentitude das ewig weibliche which gives the readiest sympathy and encouragement to every good impulse and effort of others, and is the source of a teacher’s best power in fostering the growth of character. Wifehood und motherhood, peculiarly fortunate and happy except as to the sad brevity of the former have broadened and deepened life’s experiences and increased her sources of sympathy and helpfulness. While Mrs. Bradford goes to a new position, she does not go to a now public, for her grateful pupils are at work in almost every county in Wisconsin, and she is known and valued by the best educators and school officials throughout the state. Regretting the loss to our school, we send with her the warmest congratulations upon her advancement and our best wishes for her happiness and success in her new work.

I must address these invitations for my reception next Wednesday night, in honor of Gen. Louis Davis, who has Just returned from his last successful campaign in China. Only these few ready for the mail—and so many yet to prepare! What did I do with that list of uames? Oh here it is—and the next name is Marjorie Bailey, who has Just resigned her position in a Boston kindergarten. She is here to attend the annual meeting of the confederation of women's clubs of America, of which Mamie Rleschl is president. That reminds me! I had nearly forgotten to include her able assistant. Myrtle Barker, in my list of invitations. There! the cuckoo bird announces the mail! Since Hein's new rapid transit pneumatic tube mall delivery has been adopted in this city the mall reaches us directly from the trains. (Goes to sliding panel in library wall and removes large package of mail.) Hello! here's an announcement card. “You are cordially requested to be present at a rousicale and exhibition of drawing and painting, given tinder the direction of Prof. Vanderbilt assisted by the noted soloist Margaret Flynn, who explains Vanderbilt’s new system of marking. Yours sincerely. A. VANDERBILT.” This business letter is from my attorneys. Olsen Olson. They write for possible evidence concerning the breach of promise case of Florll Ostrum against Gen. E. Hephner. 1 think I will refer them to Mary Greenfield.’’ (Looks out of the window.) There goes Florence Pfiueger in her new automobile, the gift of her fiancee. Dr. 08terbrink. How sweet Florence looks skimming along with her constant companion Lucy Herlache. Fido is sitting between them, as usual. Speaking of angels, and one hears the rustle of their wings—here’s an advertisement for Dr. Osterbrink's hospital for treatment of nostalgia and corpulency. His head nurse. Bessie Beeckler. told me the other day that no patient would dare to die when Dr. Oster-brink has once said he will recover. Quite a number of the most noted Red Cross nurses in the late war with China received their training in this hospital. Among them Clara Rohrdanz. Isabel Burns and Ethel Gee. Here’s the Evening Epitome. (Rends from first page.) “Special: 8 2,000,000 of liquefied barley lost in large leak in pipe line. Barber’s latest device for conveying malt to San Francisco, a failure. Report says, be lias made up bis mind in the matter and will soon make his twelfth attempt.” (Aside:—Wil(l) nia care'? I wonder.) What Is this in the supplement? “Coming! The world’s greatest circus, under the special direction of Daisy Shields and MaryNevin. Do not fail to see the daring feats of the famous equestrienne Evadna McNutt.” Here is a glowing account of the success of the great civil engineer who with his gifted wife, C. Belanger Hugffes is at present in Alaska busy in plans for the suspension bridge over Behring Strait. Well, 1 declare! If here isn’t the announcement of Katie Beck’s marriage to an artist. As to the kind of artist it docs not say. but I Imagine not the tonsorial artist. Here’s the notice of the appointment of Frances Ryan as instructor in mathematics in Milwaukee-Downor. 1 wonder if her face is still an animated interrogation point. I must see what the score was between Milwaukee and St. Paul (reads): Milwaukee 8, St. Paul 0. The most amusing game ever played in Milwaukee. Roberts and NVadleigh, since joining the Brewers, have become so ponderous that today's game could not be played without allowing them to alternate in the pitcher's box.” Who would ever suppose they would come to that. But I must open the rest of these letters. Here is Harold Kellar's note of acceptance stating that he will be present Wednesday night with his orchestra. Of course he will bring Mrs. Kellar (formerly Grace Griffin) with him. I expected also a letter of acceptance from the Johnson quartette. I hope no other engagement will interfere with their being present. Oh! I must telephone to the Balance of Sweets and tell them when to send the refreshments. Hollo! (1204) What? Line busy? In just a minute? Alright. Yes, Reese liked the name Palace of Sweets so they incorporated. Hello! Palace of Sweets? Mrs. Jones? Say, Norma, will you have Reese send those refreshments about 6:30 Wednesday evening? Goodbye. I will have to finish these invitations. Selma Hafsoos is next and then Elvie Hutchins. They have both become well known to the readers of the Ladies Home Journal through their illustrations in that magazine. (Turns to window.) There goes Prof. Risk of the University, and the new instructor in gymnastics, Madge Boyington. Pearl must have invited Miss Boyington to tea. undoubtedly to meet her sister Lola, who is young and cheery. There’s the door bell! Who can be coming to call when I’m so busy! Oh, it’s you, Anna. I'm so glad to see you. for I've just been thinking about some of the people whom we lwth know. "Well. I can tell you something I just heard. Robert Qackisch has Just been finishing an earthquake proof sky scraper in San Francisco....................And then you remember Rena Buchanan who is now dispensing gracious hospitality as the mistress of the executive mansion in Madison.”....................How nice for Rena! But I am curious to hear of Francis Sellars! “She is librarian in the new library and Alice Scott is her assistant....................But I can’t stay a moment more, so goodbye.” Only two more addresses to write. Margaret Hughes, who soon goes to join her doctor in the west, ami Janette Reid, who has become so popular as a writer in the Primary Educational Journal. Ah! I hear a step in the hall. I believe that is Lawrence. (Voice in hall.) "Florence.” There he Is calling me and I must go. (Gathers invitations, goes to sliding panel, and after depositing them in a pneumatic tube mail box and pressing an electric button, passes out of the room.)Jviniors 1907 Talk about a Junior class!! ITn-ni! Well rather. The best Junior class that ever survived the horrors of ilallow-eue. A class whose members have stood shoulder to shoulder throughout the year, working, playing, sorrowing and rejoicing together. Not since the foundation of the Stevens Point Normal School has there been a Junior class which has done more to “make things go' than the class of 07. Forty-six members and forty-three subscriptions to the Pointer. Looks like business unity doesn't it? Next to the smallest class in school, yet furnishing four out of six debaters, together with the school orator and half of the society men elected for debate. That's a record to shout over!! Our colors have floated from the dome from midnight till midday undisturbed. No other class can boast as much. Through our efforts but three boys attended the Senior hop. We have lost sandwiches and found apples, fled some and pursued much, feared a little and frightened a good deal. The fact is, we've been busy. The Choral Club is officered from our ranks. We have supported every movement of the school from A to %, and we'll all be on tin spot to make things hum in September. Junior Reference List Ames, M. E.—Oscar for mine.

And then bespoke a splendid day e'er close. We viewed with joy our spacious airy home Beneath dear Alina Mater's mighty dome, Explored the town, discovered what ’t would cost To explore further without being lost. The day was fair and azure wen the skies, Yet thoughts discreet bade us to organize; For danger! threatened—Seniors in array— We chose a mighty captain for the fray. The Senior cohorts, led by heroes proud. Proclaimed through hall and court full brazen loud. A grand conclave of all the Senior Peers To taste of joys unknown to Junior years. Then came a rushing as of mighty blast, A dark cloud settled o’er the earth, nor passed, I ’util the Senior knights were safe within. But when each lady sought her knight to win By gracious smile and captivating air— We laughed to see that but three knights were there. A banquet worthy of the brave elite Was tendered then—to those who brought defeat To senior plans. The menu named a score Of dainty foods—nor had we need of more, Tho Senior, base perfidious knave! With honor none the coward craven slave! Crept slyly in Heath darkness sable screen And with foul hand purloined—nor was he seen! We hope they feasted long—their first real taste Of foods which Epicurus scorned as waste! I hasten on—we issued forth—’twas late— Our hearts magnanimous burned not with hate. The Dome of Eminence all seamed and scarred We scaled and planted there our banner starred. Twelve hours it swung defiant on the wind, Twelve hours sufficed no Senior bold to find! Aloft upon this pinnacle so grand Twelve hours it waved e’rc touched by Senior hand. Thedenoument for pity I’ll not tell— Save that the Senior colors rose—Ami Fell! Again I haste—the hours slipt softly past As great events their shadows on us cast.The great debate—His Majesty in Hades— His cruel treatment of our gentle ladies— The chemical reaction 'gainst the same— The aftermath—and our official fame: The game we played on the gymnasium floor Our cramming and relief, exams once o’er: The Winter—sports, and moonlight transportation— The oratorical and our oration— The wit and humor and sagacity Of all our worthy Junior Faculty— And here—this noted date must give us pause— Our Cicero appeared to tell the cause Of ghostly, ghastly, grizzly visitation By spirit from his nether habitation. We listened to a surge of sound, A silence fell—a hush profound; The great, the grand debate for glory Indeed finds mention in my story, Another time of thought, of work and cheer We shall enjoy—we're coining back next year.

But thought the Senior poet Joked. A man with no imagination Implored the Muse for Inspiration! Whereat the Muse in jolly mood Threw off her pensive attitude. She donned the jester's pay attire. Her sparkling eye flashed witty fire. Site laughed aloud to think in sooth The Senior poet should ask in truth. Or supplicate for aid of Muse. Since all such aid he could not use. The Muse looked at. him all amaze. And pity followed with her gaze; But yet the humor of the case She could not banish from her face. Again she laughed, then wildly sang. And straight on spirit wing ups prang. She knew 'twas nigh Commencement Day. And forethought bade her haste away. For e’er that date the poet seeks To be "inspired" for many woeks. That lyric carved above his name May bring his class immortal fame. The Muse now retrospective grew As on thru spirit realms she flew. The years again passed in review— ’05, 04. 03 and 2; And further in perspective sped The older years so long since lied. She read the sonnets with disgust, She spelled out songs inscribed in rust. Sho searched on shelves, in obscure dust, For poems she had placed in trust; She scanned the oldest fading page. Sho glanced at parchment brown with age; She opened each old musty book. She sought in each sepulchral nook For poems worth a second look— Then she her fruitless quest forsook. For none she found! the records bare Rewarded her with empty stare! To 1906 she darted back. Then followed her resolve—alack! By all her power divine she swore That she’d inspire class poets no more! Such drivelling ditties, foolish rhymes. Such insane odes and childish chimes! Such simple sonnets! maudlin verse! What nicknamed "poetry" was worse? “Avaunt," she cried, “my work is done! Hereafter I shall favor none!”She said, but caught the pious sigh A Senior heaved as she passed by: She heard his cry of deep despair And paused to listen to his prayer. He called aloud. ‘‘0 Muse Divine, Stoop down and guide this pen of mine!" She stooped and whispered as he wrote— A few choice sentiments we quote. ‘The sands once in the glass of time arc all but spent; Pause and review the year—say where they went. Tell how each hour slipped silent, softly by. View all that you have done, what not and why. Sum up your effort, bring forth what it has done. And balance all ’gainst what Is left undone— All your accomplishment will trifies seem— So light that Vanity can tip the beam." ‘So passes time for all who seek or strive. For those who work not in Life’s busy hive That as ’tis passing, we stand by the way And value not our present—this today. Yet, though no space for musing intervenes. We pause to muse upon the changing scenes That Time hath brought before us on our stage. And analyze the drama of our age." ‘Seniors! pause not to speculate. Scorn ye to hesitate. Work is supreme—not Fate! Toil—nothing more! Strive not a name to make. Toil not for Mammon’s sake, Mark well the way ye take— Scan ev'ry door." ‘Fix now thy aim in mind— What wilt thou seek to find?— Firmly thy purpose bind Within thy heart! Forth from thy moorings cast. Weigh anchor from the past. Lash mem’ry to the mast, For we must part." Deep have we drunk of ease. Drunk not unto the lees! launch now to Fortune’s breeze Nor fear the gale! Fierce though the seas may rave. Wild though the shores they lave. All for Our Master brave. Hail, future! Hall!"] tjvtnuL plM Wa MfV t M.

All of thcae inscription antedate the Second Dynasty. The famous Archaeologist making these remarkable investigations are said to be descendants of two famous scholars of that remote age. All these inscriptions were apparently made contemporaneously which adds to their value, covering as they do o important « period in so comprehensive a manner. The inscriptions are numbered in chronological order, and are doubtless fairly accurate accounts. — Date of excavation June 10. is'-st A. I). I. XI) it came to pass in the eighth month of the eleventh year of the reign of President Pray, on the twtMit v-eighth day of the month, that all tin sons of the trihe Normal were gathered together. And there were among them no small number of mighty men of valor whose fame had gone abroad throughout all the coasts of Portage, even unto the land of Oshkosh. And the people were numbered according to years, and the men of 0t numbered two score and eight, the men of ’07 two score and twelve, and the men of '08 three score, and the men of 01) four score and eleven. And there were prophets and sooth savers, and leaders of the host full one score and three, and they were all gathered together of one accord in one place.’’ II. “And behold it came to pass that after this on the sixteenth day of the ninth month the men of 06, having chosen a captain of their hand, did make merry in the gymnasium. And tin men of ’07 were tilled with envy and wore moved with clioler against the men of ’00, and they gathered themselves together, as the sands of the sea a multitude no man could number, and a great cloud descended upon the face «»f the earth covering all things with an exceeding great darkness. And the men of 07 came up against the stronghold of the men of 00 and laid waste the region round about and besieged the city, lying in wait without the walls. Verily they did make no small demonstration but could not prevail against the might of the class of 00. And the young men and maidens of 00 did dance and sing aloud rejoicing in the folly of the men of ’07. Then was tin chief captain of 07 sorely vexed and he cried saying, “who he ye that suffer tin scorn of your enemies? As our nation 1 iveth whoso doth not quit himself bravely and tight the same shall be reported to tin office of President Pray.” And the number reported was one score and ten. And there was peace for about the space of seven days. III. “Now it cairn to pass that the members of 07 did seek to spread a great feast in that regal edifice, the gym, and there were among them half a score strong and mighty men of valour. And they did bar all the gates and make fast all the windows and station guards within and without. And they did bring from the country round about much meat and drink, rejoicing that the day of the feast was indeed come. Now even as the men of 07 were making ready for the. musicians,behold one of the captains of 00 did say unto his fellow, Come let us go up to the camp of 07 and spy out their works. And they arose and journeyed thither and hid themselves in the camp of 07. And it was about the sixth hour. Now when all things were made ready for tin feast the men of 07 did cease from their labors and left no strong nieu to guard the storehouse wherein were heaped together of choice meats the weight of two talents, of bread tin weight of one talent, of olives and spices half a talent, and of cakes not a few. And there was a great silence in the gymnasium and in the kitchen and throughout all the camp of 07. And when the spies of 06 perceived this they hasted greatly and got them down to the basement, having first removed their shoes lest they disturb the peace of Bruce Wilcox, who was the Chief Guard. And they came unto the door of the kitchen and essayed to open it by violence, but could not for the lock. Then one of the captains did gird himself and went around by another way, and climbed into the storehouse and look therefrom bread aud meat the weight of two talents. And they spoiled the camp, not fearing what the men of 07 could do unto them. Then they departed to the camp of 00, where they made known all that had befallen. And there was great rejoicing. Now when the men of 07 returned to their camp and found not the fruits of their labor they were exceeding wroth and did gnash their teeth for they did mourn the loss of their treasure. And the noise of their mourning ascended up unto the stars. Therefore Wilcox inclined his ear unto their cry and did thereafter guard the camp of 07 for they were sore afraid insomuch that they ceased from their dancing. And it was about the eleventh hour.” IV. “Ami it came to pass in the first year of the reign of Czar Reid that in the tenth month, on the twelfth day of the month, the men of 07 were gathered together. And it was night, and the moon stood still over the Normal Dome and the stars did behold in silence the daring deed whereby the men of 07 did attach a piece of cofTe-sack to the Normal Dome, for they did make it fast to a cord and pull upon the cord, even until the sack was nigh unto the foot of the dome. And there was peace in I lie camp of 00. Now in the morning when the men of 00 saw what was done they withdrew themselves from the congregation of the people and got them upon the dome, hut they could not get the sack because of the wind. So they ’ ' , even until the twelfth hour, when not only the sun but the wind also stood still while a captain of ‘00 did scale the dome and cut therefrom tin sacking. And the Maroon and Cream did float higher than the men of 07 could attain. And they could not pluck them with the hand so I hex did reach them from afar off. And again there was peace in the camp of ‘00. ” V. “And there went forth a decree from the ramp of 00 calling upon all 16336160men of -07 to gather in the gymnasium (Instant the time. Anon! Anon!) and receive the wages of their evil deeds. And great fear came upon all the nation of 07 and there was lamentation throughout all her coasts. Now the wise men of 0(» did tax all the people, every man an equal sum, that the men of 07 might be paid. And the treasury was tilled. Now when the 28th day of the tenth month was passed and the even was come, behold there did shine in the gymnasium, in the porches, in the courts and in divers places strange lights, and there were monsters and devils and spirits of darkness, and all did east frightful shadows and rent the air with their wailings. Now the captain of the host of 00 did sit upon his throne to receive the homage of the men of 07 though it did give him great pain. Then were the men of 07 in sore distress insomuch that their knees smote together, and they did humbly bow before the captain of 00 and he forgave them all their debt. And they went on their way rejoicing and encamped not far off and made merry until the twelfth hour.” VI. ‘‘Now in the days of Duncan the Prophet behold a great dearth did come upon all the land. And the men of 07 had not tin wherewithal to enjoy themselves. Likewise tin men of )( were forbidden on pain of death to desert their camp lest they without intention miss examinations. Now when the winter was well night come it came to pass that all the men of 'Oil, whose homes were distant more than a holiday's journey, were banqueted at the house4 of one of the great captains of the Tribe Normal on the thirtieth day of the eleventh month. And the winter came and in due time the day of midwinter beginning, when all the people did gather to witness the departure of certain members of (Mi. And they went forth to conquer and spread still farther the honor and fame of 0i ." VII. “Now when the days of the spring vacation had passed came the call of Bacon unto certain members of the versatile class of'()(» by the proclamation of him who was a grandfather u all the people. And they heeded his call and hasted greatly and made themselves ready and did proclaim that they would in due time present “The Pashiouable Physician. And behold the talk thereof was great and many did make ready to attend. For when those of the class of (M who were in tin cast did come together and recite their lines the father laughed and sent abroad divers reports as to the wonderful powers of the caste of 015. And the father did train the cast most diligently and with great sucn ss, and the characters hearkened unto his voice, even so did Brasure and Jarvis, and Sylvia and Ellen and Oaks and all the others. And they did enjoy rehearsing. But lo, a great change did come over the men of tn and they forgot the jov they had known in the past, and the father was sore in bis heart for they hearkened no longer unto his voice. And because he had taught the cast full one score of “stunts" for which In did receive nothing was lie exceeding son of heart."VIII. “In tlie last days of the sojourn of ‘OH did it come to pass that certain members of their exceeding versatile class did wish to display their wit and literary culture. And they banded themselves together saying, Go to, let us now write a book wherein shall be recorded all the great deeds of the men of the Tribe Normal and of the class of 190t». and let ns affectionately dedicate it to our President. And the men of '0(5 were pleased and said, Even as has been suggested so will we do. And there then arose no small dispute concerning what name the book should be called. Divers were the names proposed until the common wisdom of the sage members agreed to call its name “Iris. ’ Now when the book was about to be published there went abroad a rumor that there were no monies wherewith to pay the printer of the book. And again did the sagacious men of ’00 act wisely and quickly, for there went forth a call to all the men of ’06 asking them to report at once to the treasurer their financial condition. And behold they were all well and hearty, and for the space of live days did the stalwart treasurer labor to transport the coin. And it came to pass that when the book did appear all people were astonished by the excellence and quantity of the contribution of the class of ’0b. And it was found that their contribution was indeed greater than that of any previous class.” IX. “As for their after history you all know of the high esteem and reverence in which the men of Ob are held by all who know concerning them, of the manner in which they acquitted themselves on Class Day, of the excellent counsel they bestowed gratis upon the men of '07. And her fame is great so that it is known in all corners of our nation, to the north, to the west, to the east, and to the south has gone forth the fame of the class of 1906 and the school from whence they come. And they did all respect, the powers that be.”-X©hiyesa Presidents There was a small maiden named Deyoe, Who came to the school with good cheer Ob. With wisdom and wit. The first one to sit As chief of the great Ohiyesos. The next was a maiden named Burr. We're sure we can well say of her, "On her face is a smile A good share of the while When she spies a handsome young Sir.1 The third was our own Margaret No fairer has e'er ruled us yet She turned the boys down, (Tho we ne’er saw her frown) In a way they will not forget. The last was a maiden named Park Who thought nothing so good as a lark. Who cried out "Oh Joy!” And looked very coy For at that she's a regular shark.Ohiyesa Should you ask me whence this poem, Whence these stories rno-t authentic With the sound of feast and revel, And of eloquent discussion. We should answer, we should tell you From the hallways and gymnasium, From the room for deepest study, At the Stevens Point Great Normal, Where the tribe of Ohiyesa Hurl their cry of “Winners! winners!" Scarce a year In age we Hnd them. Yet a tribe to be considered Honored by the Athenteum, And extending hands of friendship To the members of the Forum. Causing e'en the staid Arena. Wide to ope their eyes in wonder And determine with great firmness That their record be not beaten. In the Fail, when in their glory AH the leaves are turning color, To promote fraternal feeling And a love amongst all members, Did the Ohiyesa gladly Send their peace bolt of bright wampum,To the other tribesmen saying: : "Come and let us all to-gether. On the Fourteenth of October; Smoko the calumet, the peace-pipe, In the room we call the Annex.” So was instituted 'mongst them. A new feeling ; most congenial With enough of rival spirit, To keep all, for lead, competing. Later in the year, these Indians, Streaked with war-paint, decked with feathers, Circled round their shining camp-fire. In the gloom of the deep forest, Where the voices of the dumb-bells And the neighing of the horses Sounded with the cry of "Winners!" Thus in fashion most suggestive Did they show the red-man's spirit. Striving to make known to others The tribe nature of the Indian. Called they then another gathering, Of their friends, and yet their rivals, And in wise and deep discussion, To them simply they presented Indian lore and occupations, Indian songs and Indian language. To these Indians from their contact With the white man's mighty nation.Came the taste for money-petting, For trade, barter, likewise grafting. Building for themselves a wigwam With their banner high above it, Did they open their first venture, in the marl of busy commerce, Selling sweets, for those whose fancy, Tempted them to spend their pennies; Bringing joy without a limit, To these dusky Indian maidens. » Thariks to all their friends and tribesmen, Did “Success" attend their efforts. So the year has sped on quickly, Fall becoming chilly Winter. Which departed (or the Spring-time, That in turn would lead to Summer. Likewise came far many changes To the tribe of Ohiyesa. For some of these Indian maidens, Has the call of Duty sounded, And to other tribes far distant Are they forced, perchance, to wander; Hut to those irho still remain here Do they leave a record golden, Pure and stainless, bright itml hopeful, I Bidding them to 'ere continue In the footsteps of their elders, Spreading love among their fellows, And the spirit of achievement. And to those who we v not of them Yet in truth, who have been near them, Do thev send this word of friendship-"Burr now the glistening hatchet, Corer up old wounds that rankle, And accept, as ft is tendered, The good will ttnd the best wishes,, 01 the tribe of Oiiijesa, ’’1 YELLS. s ii)eap big society llcap big fun ail other societies i£afte a heap big ran. ii.

In all youthful sports and pleasures, In all gay and merry measures The Arena takes delight. Every week on Friday night, When the seventh hour draws near You find us in our room so dear, Madam President’s steady hand Strikes the gavel which doth demand “Attention, all !” and we proceed As on the program we’ve agreed. All loyal hearts with pleasure thrill When sweet harmonious strains do till The air—“Arena, live for aye!” Important questions of the day Receive their due consideration. And after much elucidation, Arena renders verdicts wise. And soon the “Golden Age” would rise, If her advice the world would heed. (A gentle hint this is indeed ! ) One Friday night she did decide To take her members for a ride. Three teams it took, so great the crowd. With banners Hying, trumpets loud With merry voices, tinkling bells. Interspersed with Arena yells. The happy sleigh loads glided on. And those who heard them wished to he Arenaites with minds so free.Spirit Voices. I sat alone in the twilight. Alone in the twilight array, And spirits thronged about me That I deemed were gone for aye. They told me of vanished moments, Of deeds I might have done. Of duties that I still had left Undone! undone! undone! Now tell me, sad eyed spirits. How I may grasp you again. But, there comes this sorrowful answer In accents fraught with pain; “Not till next year will you hear us, For a great gulf lies between; So stir on, stir on forever In the valley of Might Have Been." Arena! Oh Arena! Leave on your golden wings; Come hack with the same good spirit; Come back with cheer that rings! Then in glory you will prosper As you always did of vore; And you’ll be the strength among us That you’ve ever been before. To the Arena.

Choral Club The Normal Choral Club began its history with the opening of the school year 1904. It is the first permanent organization of the kind in the school. In previous years the young men have organized Glee Clubs and were successful In their work, giving many entertaining programs: With the organization of the Normal Choral Club of mixed voices it was considered that as good an opportunity is offered the young men of the school as formerly and more opportunity to the student body, the young ladles' Treble Clef being organized. The purpose of the organization Is to give the students of the school an oportunlty to benefit by the musical training under the direction of an efficient leader. Further than this tho object of the society Is to further the interests of music in this school. We began the first year with an enrollment of seventy. Good, earnest work was done under our director. Miss Ella Fink. A special feature of our work, besides helping with various programs, was the mid winter program given by the Club. This year our Club, while having slightly more than two-thirds of the enrollment of last year, has done good work. We have our regular meetings every Thursday evening, this being an advantage over the noon day meetings of last year. The last of the second quarter we were greatly surprised, and regretted very much, to hear that we were to lose Miss Fink. She had worked faithfully with us and we regretted a change. But as we became acquainted with Mrs. Bridge, our new director, the work again went on In a way satisfactory to all. At the beginning of the second quarter a few changes were made in our constitution. Amendments were passed compelling a reasonable excuse for absence from a session, otherwise a fine Is imposed. The workings of this amendment have been satisfactory to the members. Tho aim Is to put the Choral Club on a firm footing and make It a permanent organization for years to come. So as this school year draws to a close we can look back on another successful year’s work. Mistakes have been made of course, but we shal profit by them the coming year. The benefits derived from the Club are plainly in evidence and we feel that the purpose for which the club was organized has been largely realized. T. M. RISK. President01’ XG Women arc always welcome to our meetings held every Thursday afternoon. extend an invitation to next year’s students to join this spiritually helpful association, organized December it, 1D02. OXSIDEIt the progress our society has made in procuring a permanent room with an organ and other equipments to make our meetings more attractive. the Association girls feel especially grateful to the several members of the faculty and outside speakers for their helpful addresses during the year We desire your further assistance for the moral welfare of our school. kFoot Ball Team»«1905Basket Ball Team»»1905Oratory and DebateThe Inter-Normal Debate II K. Martin •I. K J H Br •Who A TRIO of Normulltes "from the Northern Woods" treated three representatives of the Milwaukee Normal to a crushing defeat in the InterNormal Debate held at Stevens Point, May 12th, 1905. The decision was unanimous. Milwaukee was confident her men would win. She was surprised and disappointed. She prized the decision, but failed to secure it, and. falling, felt that she had "lost" the debate. April 27th, 1906. the debaters from Stevens Point met defeat at the hands of the team representing Milwaukee Normal. But no spirit of despondency rested upon S. P. N. No dejection characterized the return of the debaters. They debated for the strength thereby attained, for the satisfaction attending earnest effort and continued study, for the good will and respect ot their opponents and all members of the opposing school. They presented a debate which earned recognition equivalent to victory by receiving one vote and the assurance of the Milwaukee faculty that they considered the decision doubtful. The School debating team consisting of Harold R. Martin. J. E. Sazama, and J. H. Browne were satisfied with the decision and pleased with the spirit manifested by their opponents before and after the debate. However, their debate was a team debate, a debate planned and organized by the team as a unit and as individuals, a debate receiving little attention and criticism from our faculty, a debate which guaged the power, the ability, the fluency, the ingenuity, the industry of the team. Milwaukee's debate, on the other hand, was a faculty affair. We say this without disparagement of the Milwaukee team or any member thereof, but we are Informed that a faculty committee was appointed to assume charge and direction of the debate. The committee met regularly with the team for two months previous the contest, the debaters were drilled incessantly for several weeks. Consequently, we were Indeed gratified to learn that in a debate against the combined intellect and knowledge of the Milwaukee faculty and the Milwaukee debating team, our men made so creditable a record. The question debated was: Resolved. That the changes In the Southern State constitutions since 1S89, whereby the negro vote has been restricted, are. on the whole, unwise. Stevens Point supported the affirmative. Mr. Pray, who has ever been an Inspiration to our debating interests, has left this motto with every S. P. N. debater: The decision is secondary; the benefit derived is primary. kThe Oratorical Association November 141li Ellen Hammond was elected Secretary of tin Inter-Normal League to till the vacancy caused by Ellen Hoffman's resignation. There were but two contestants in our local contest. Their orations were given as a morning exercise. Bertha Parker with “The Sacredness of Human Life” was given first place. Linnie Krause’s oration, “Nineteenth Century Feudalism,” was a remarkably fine, logical composition. Thursday afternoon about twenty-five students, with Mr. liver and Mr. Spindler, accompanied Miss Parker to Milwaukee where the state contest was held. President Pray came down the next day. The contest was a good one, of course. The three boy contestants took the first three places. Irving Hewlett of Oshkosh was awarded first place; oration, “Bolivar and South American Liberty.” However, as “the victory lies in the struggle, not tin prize,” we felt that Miss Parker had gained a victory second to none. Certainly no one could have worked harder, or have shown more pluck and perseverance through it all than she did. After the contest it was discoveml that one of the judges was an alumnus of the Oshkosh Normal. Platteville, which would have first place if this judge were thrown out, entered a protest. The executive committee decided to disqualify him, giving Alvin Olson of Platteville first place. As Mr. Olson couldn't get his oration in on time the Inter-State Association refused to admit him, so Mr. Howlett went as first to Warrensbnrg, Mo.; Mr. Olson as second.Contests: Their Use and Abuse UATORICAL and declamatory contests nre now the fashion. So strong a hold have they taken upon our school habits that we have come, in a way. to take thorn for granted, and to look upou them as an essential feature of a school's life, and as a necessary adjunct to declamatory and oratorical work. So true is this that the very word orator suggests contest. No one will deny that an association such as our Inter-Normal League has promoted and systematized oratorical work; but neither can any thoughtful person believe that that league, or any other of its kind, is free from imperfections. It Is the purpose of this paper to point out some of these imperfections, and to suggest some changes which will make for a more wholesome spirit In contest work. First, I believe we place too much Importancae on winning. Let us take our own experience in the last contest at Milwaukee. Over five hundred and fifty of us went in—for what purpose, and with what hopes? I wish I might answer, honestly; "To hear the best orations from the different schools, to renew acquaintances. and to have a good pleasant rest.” These things we hoped for undoubtedly; but really, what hope and prayer was uppermost In pour mind? Was it uot: “Oh! if our man can only win!” I believe this Is altogether unfortunate. It was far more Important that he and the others, should do well, should speak forth their convictions with sincerity and power, than that any particular person should win. And 1 believe, further, that our system of contests, conducted in their present spirit. Is in part responsible for this false emphasis. Orations existed before "contests” or "Judges" or "leagues” were heard of. and the oration, not the "decision” is the thing. Now. in the second place, how al out this "winning.' that Is prized so highly? What is It. to "win?" It Is to please five men in your audience so well that the average of their several opinions ranks you higher than your fellows. These men are chosen, presumably. with all possible care, are to be free from bias or prejudice, and are to be Intelligent enough so that their collective opinion will be Just. It Is here that 1 make my second objection. Their decisions, often, are not Just. In fact, how many just decisions do you know about? Do they outnumber those which struck the audience as being manifestly wrong? What builds up or justifies in our minds this worship of the "decision” when a glance at the records shows that individually our Jurors themselves are far from agreement? Let me tell you of our local contest here at Whitewater. We had six contestants and five judges; and of five of the contestants, each received a first from judge. It might he pertinent to add that two of the contestants received a first, and a fifth and sixth each. We need not mention tlto disparagement in marking found in our late Ill-starred decision in Milwaukee. And when we consider what an oration is and who the judges are. it is not surprising that we find such radical differences of opinion. There are many things to be considered In an oration. Originality ami vigor of thought, logical arrangement, soundness of argument, evidence of study and research, nicety of discrimination In treatment, diction, earnestness, conviction, power over audience. mastery of vocal utterance—enunciation, articulation, and placing of voice-gestures. bodily expression, emphasis and inflection indicating grasp of details, the sense of climax and proportion, together with many other things, must all be taken Into consideration. It is impossible to find a jury that would agree upon the res|H?ctlve weight to be given to these several Items; and when we consider the countless whims, caprices, wrong notions, special interests, prejudices, and altogether unschooled and inadequate conceptions of academic oratory, which consciously or unconsciously but always inevitably affect every man’s judgment of an oration (and judges are but men), we must admit. 1 think, that if the right man Is hit upon by the decision. It is by lucky chance, and not because our judging device is at all certain in its workings. These things surely ought to show us the lottery of the decision. I believe It Is wrong to encourage so much pride in securing a decision, when so much of mere chance affects it.A consideration of these several lines of merit which different orations may possess and of the different personalities to which the orations must make their appeal, brings us to the third, and. in a way. the fundamental objection to contests: In five good con- tests out of ten there w no winner. While one oration will excel In strength, originality, or logical arrangement of thought, another will have for its strong points vigorous presentation. pleasing manner, and winning personality. It would be impossible in a close contest. to say Just which orator had a greater average excellence along all these lines, or to say which line should be considered of greater importance. It is a noteworthy fact that those who are most sure of their judgment of orations are not those who know most about orations. I believe no one who has given the matter serious thought questions the statements thus far made. The argument for contests is that they foster Interest In oratorical and similar work, and that we coudn't get the enthusiasm and results without the decision as an Incentive. This was the reason for starting contests, and It is sound in part. But. as often happens, we havo mistaken the means for the end. and the winning, which should be merely an incident, has been magnified in place and Importance until our perspective has been lost. Now here are two suggestions which the writer has long wished to make, and which he believes will sometime be followed: 1. That we talk less of "winning" In our local contests, and. so far as they are contests at all consider them merely as preliminary trials at which our representatives in the next higher contest are to be choseu, announcing no ranks in our decision. 2. That in the final contest—the Inter-State at present—we have no decision. Do you say there would be no interest in such a meeting? I do not sec the grounds for such a belief. Didn't we used to have school "exhibitions.' which patrons came from miles around to attend? And didn’t the children do their level best? And after it was over, weren't we all happier than as though an arbitrary "decision" had made John first and James last? And. best of all, we were happy in the conscious and real pride of having done our part well. I will waive the financial argument—though judges are expensive luxuries—and rest my plea for doing away with the contest feature wherever possible, solely on this ground of the satisfaction one should bo allowed to enjoy In having done his part well. How many a company of students have gone home after a contest, disappointed and unhappy simply because a decision did not come their way, when they should have been experiencing feelings of pride in the excellence of their representative! How much bettor, then. It would be in our present final contest. If each catne and let his oration stand on Its own merits, with no one to exult In what is far too often the hollow honor of a chance victory, and, what is of far greater Importance, no one to grieve over an undeserved, but bitter defeat.

To mount the dazzling pinnacle of Fame? To be a hero in your country’s eyes ? To sit among the learned and the wise And cast undying glory round thy name? On literary scrolls thy name to write?

And carve thy name across the Continents? To shape by word and deed the World's events And l e the choice of Nations and of kings? To taste the sweets of Pleasure's charmed cup? To drift adown the limpid stream of Ease, Nor stern Necessity be forced to please? Is such the aim that buoys and bears thee up? IIow oft are such aims worshipped and indieved ! Yet true success needs none of these to be ; For as the effort, so the victory, Since struggle measures what we have achieved. To struggle bravely with what you possess: To grasp the moment and its worth apply: To utilize Conditions is success— To him whose honor naught on earth can buy.CORBETT Miss Marshall was the new teacher; and Corbett was Mr. Bentley’s tame ram. It was evident from the first that Corbett took a deep Interest in Miss Marshall, which interest it was also evident she did not return. Nowhere was there sweeter grass than that which grew along the road over which Miss Marshall passed to and from school. At least this was Corbett’s opinion ; and, as a consequence, he spent most of his leisure time contentedly nibbling the grass on either side, only puusing occasionally to gaze meditatively up and down the road. When away in the distance he caught the Hash of a certain dinner pail, which he soon learned to know, his eye would brighten as if his thoughts were pleasant. Miss Marshall had learned to keep a watchful eye, as she never knew when or where she would meet this undesirable acquaintance : and many were the tales she could tell of fences scaled with more rapidity than grace, or hours spent upon a convenient stump with Corbett for a diversion. Finally, life grew to be a burden to Miss Marshall, and she resolved to speak to Mr. Bentley. Beturning one night from a more exciting encounter than usual, she found Mr. Bentley seated on a liench at the end of the house enjoying a smoke. This was her opportunity. She poured forth her tale of woe graphically illustrated from her wide experience. Mr. Bentley heard her to the end ; and then threw back his head and laughed. ‘Afraid of Corbett? Nonsense ! He's a gentle as a lamb; he's just trying to make friends with you. I raised that black ram myself from the time ho was a week old, and I know he is not vicious. You just walk along unconcerned like and he'll never touch you.” MissMurshall walked away still unconvinced : hut resolved to stand it a little longer. Things went from bad to worse. She began to gut pale and thin, and start nervously at every sound. Still Mr. Bentley laughed at her fears. Determined at last to end matters once for all, she followed Mr. Bentley out to the chicken coop where he was mixing feed for the chickens' evening meal and was greeted by, “Well, how's Corbett ? Been doing any stunts lately ? I tell you If you keep on, you will be the fastest runner in the State. There is Corbett right over there. Did you ever see a more innocent expression?” Sure enough there he was, and hearing his name, he walked slowly toward them. Miss Marshall edged around to the other side of Mr. Bentley. He only laughed and remarked as he bent over to place the patf inside the coop door, “I tell you, lie's perfectly”--but where was Mr. Bentley? From somewhere in the depths of the coop floated back the word '‘safe!” Miss Marshall stood motionless trying to take in the situation. Corbett, after casting a look at her, which she always declared was a wink, fell to nibbling the grass as if nothing had happened. All is peace and contentment now for Miss Marshall: and sometimes returning from school she stops to gaze thru a wire fenee at the “Innocent Corbett.”The Eye of the Heart. The night has a thousand eyes. And the day but one. Yet the light of the bright world dies With the dying sun. The mind has a thousand eyes. And the heart but one. Yet the Jight of a whole life dies When love is done,” Francis W. Hourdillon in this little poem which made him famous tells us that the mind compared to the heart is as the light of night compared to that of day. It's an excellent poem for the teacher to keep in mind, since we are rather prone to let the education of the heart take care of itself while devoting our efforts almost exclusively to the education of the thousand eyes of the mind —preparing pupils to pass examinations. Pestalozzi says, “The education that makes character Individual and national begins with the heart, the conscience, and the imagination. The storing of the memory with facts is a tool shop more essential to the making of a living than the learning how to live, which is life's higher purpose. Among the most effective means toward the education of this one eye of the heart is literature, especially that which is committed to memory; we need to have it always with us to be used as occasion offers. I place literature among the first because thru it so much else may be learned. Hamilton W. Mabie tells the story of an old Scotchman who went out doors every morning and stood with bared head. When asked why he did this he said he was taking off his hat to the beauty of the world. The beauty of the world ! Pestalozzi, who Seeley says approaches more nearly to the Great Teacher than anymnn who everlived, thought that above all else pupils should be taught to appreciate the beauties of Nature, this being most conducive to the one end aud aim of existence—love. ’Tis strange tho true that eyes must be taught to see the beauties that everywhere surround us, and ears must be taught to hear them. Strange that one could pass over a brook every day for years all unmindful of its song, until Whittier with “The music of whose liquid lip Had been to us companionship,” and Tennyson with “ 1 chatter over stony wavs In little sharps and trebles ; I bubble into eddying bays 1 babble on the pebbles ” reveal to him n music that is wondrous sweet Robert Browning says : “ We're made so that we love first when we see them painted tilings we have passed perhaps a hundred times nor cared to see.” I interpret this to mean painted with either brush or pen, since I believe there is no means comparable to literature in the opening of eyes and ears. What was it that first led people to an appreciation of Scottish natural scenery but Scott’s••One burnished sheet of living gold Loch Katrine lay beneath him rolled.’' • For ’ere he parted he would say Farewell to lovely Loch Achray; Where shall he find in foreign laud So lone a lake, so sweet a strand?" "And mountains that like giants stand To sentinel enchanted land," etc.? How without the poet could one ever conceive of the lakes of Madison after this manner: “ Four limpid lakes, four naids, Or sylvan deities are these, In living robes of azure dressed— Four lovely handmaids that uphold Their shining mirrors rimmed with gold To the fair city in the West?" We wish to teach our pupils to love and protect the birds, assuredly—it's of infinitely more importance, spiritually and financially, than to teach them how to solve a lot of problems whose like they'll never meet outside the schoolroom. One evening I was walking home from school with a little boy ubout eight years of age. A flock of quails flew up from the roadside as we neared them— l eautiful, plump little fellows ! The boy braced himself up. raised his arms in imitntion of holding a gun, squinted his eyes, and exclaimed excitedly. "Gee! if I only had a gun !" Some bird poems together with talks and observation will work wonders toward banishing this "gun" spirit in hoys, and the desire for bird millinery in girls. Then the flowers, those "smiles of God’s goodness"- wonderful, wonderful creations, the meanest of which Wordsworth said to him could give thought that often lay too deep for tears—will surely make sometime in our schools, if we can’t get it any other way, to interest pupiis in them. Just one little story to show how much they may influence character: A prisoner found a little plant growing in a crevice of his cell. He transplanted it to a pot. and having little to occupy his attention spent mucli time watching it. His joy knew no hounds when, one day. a pure white lily hurst into bloom. He had come to the prison an atheist, but left it a believer in God. Nothing less, he reasoned, could have wrought such a miracle. An old lady who had worked hard nil her life on a farm, raising a large family of children, told me she didn’t know what she should have done all those years without her flowers. Sometimes right in the middle of her dishwashing she'd run out for a few minutes to them : then with renewed courage she’d go on with her work. The dear old lady in Pansy’s "Three People," says. "Theboy can’t be wholly bad : didn’t you see the pansy in his buttonhole? ’ Literature is full of flowers to help us "along tins line." From flowers we pass to trees. Holmes loved them so much he called them his tree wives. He says, "I shall sj eak of trees a- we see them, love them, adore them in the lields where they are alive, holding their green sun-shadex over our heads, talking to us with their hundred thousand whispering tongues, looking down on us with sweet meekness." Lucy Larcom says : "Time is never wasted listening to the trees. If to heaven as grandly we arose as these— Holding to each other half their kindly grace, Haply we were worthier of our human place."Literature is almost as full of trees as of flowers. With this to help us shall we make no effort to teach pupils to look sometimes at the poet's tree, rather than always of the wood chopper's ? Now a few words for the clouds, not the least of these beauties of Nature. I should count it no sin to stop in the midst of a recitation to call the attention of the class to anything unusually glorious in them. It keeps the mind from growing small to contemplate such infinity as the sky. I asked a lady what she thought the reason that women spend so much more time than the men in trivial, often mischievous, gossip. ‘•Because men have the whole sky to look at. and women keep themselves mostly within four small walls," she replied. In all my attendance at school I have no recollection of any teacher's having called my attention to the beauty of the clouds. I left country school with the idea that Arithmetic was the one test of an education, my highest ambition having been to learn to do all the problems in Robinson's Practical Arithmetic. Accidentally I came across Buskin's " Beauty of the Clouds," and a new world was opened to me—a world more beautiful than artist ever painted. Speaking of the sky, he says, "It is the part of creation in which Nature has done more for the sake of pleasing man, more for the sole and evident purpose of talking to him and teachiug him than in any other of her works. There is not a moment of any day of our lives when Nature is not producing scene after scene, picture after picture, glory after glory, and working still upon such exquisite and constant principles of the most perfect beauty that it is quite certain that it is all done for us and intended for our perpetual pleasure." Not only does Nature constantly furnish us pictures to please the eye, but also music to please the ear—the music of earth is never dead, but it takes the poet to make us see that there's no music on earth more exquisite than the ripple of a brook or the song of birds, and none more majestic than the thunder. Besides helping us to see the beauty all around the line things in literature help us in other ways as promoters of right thinking and conduct. George McDonald says that we arc no more the author of our thoughts than of our existence. The minds of the best people are not free from bad thoughts which do more to injure character than bad actions do, beeauso they may be indulged in secretly. I know of nothing more efficacious for nipping them in the bud than to begin to repent a poem ns soon ns one becomes aware that his "thoughts are not tit to bo seen." Gen. O. O. Howard said to the teacher of his hoy, "I'd rather you’d tench my boy quotations from the masters that will help him meet the temptations and exigencies of life than all the Geometry that was over invented"—this from a man of the world. Ella Wheeler Wilcox says that she keeps this stanza of Goethe’s always before her on her desk : " Lose this day loitering it will be the same to-morrow, And the rest more dilatory: This indecision brings its own delays, And days are lost lamenting other days. Are you in earnest? seize this very minute ! What you can do, or think you can, begin it; Genius has beauty, power and magic in it. Only engage and then the mind grows heated : Begin, and then the work will be completed." Why is Literature, esjiecially Poetry, so much more effective than the same sentiment would he clothed in our own words ? Why does a verse find him who a sermon flies ; and why wouldn’t It do just as well for pupils to remember the sentiment in their own words ? Because they’d not remember the sentiment, and liecause it’s that very thing—the beautiful expression of the thought, that makes it effective.A teacher who gave the committing of choice selections to memory great prominence in his school tells this story : “In our last year’s class there was a youth of clear brain and steady purpose, who would have entered college this year with l ettur preparation than any of his schoolfellows. He was taken ill some months before the close of the term, and was conilned to the house until his death a few weeks since. When I called to seo him a day or two before he died his voice had sunk to a whisper, and he was quietly awaiting the end. glad to think it so near. As I sat on the side of his bed and talked with him of familiar things, I recalled his having learned the Ninetieth Psalm, and said, You know the grand old verse, “Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place In all generations? ’ ’ With a glad smile, Oh. ves!’ he whispered, for he could no longer speak above his breath, und went on with the verses that follow, adding eagerly in a whisper when he had ended, ‘O, how good many of those sweet and noble things that we learned in the High School have been tome when I have been kept in the house all those long months! What pleasure it has been to think them over and over again ! ’ He was dying, but these things out of his school life he recalled with rare gratification even then. Not Mathematics, or Science, or Latin, or Greek—and lie was foremost in ull those studies— onl this ! Is it good to do such work? I think so.” KLLKN HAMMOND. De Sweet By An’ By.

HV Jki Simpkins had just passed his fortieth mile-stone and in all this time had never felt the need of a help-meet to travel life’s Journey with hint and incidentally dispose of his hard earned savings, none of the spinsters knew. Jed lived on a large farm on the outskirts of a small village. This farm was one of the best to be found anywhere in the vicinity, all due to his thrift and untiring energy. His barns were full to overflowing with hay and grain: sleek cattle wandered over vast stretches of clover field : and his poultry yard and truck garden were the chief sources of supply for the whole village. His house was large and roomy and a model for neatness, for Jed prided himself on his housekeeping. Many a spinster had cast longing glances upon Jed’s bountiful acres mentally picturing herself mistress of it all; but to no purpose. Jed went about his own atTairs plowing his fields, baking his bread, driving to market with his vegetables, or attending church upon Sunday; but never wasting valuable time talking to the women of the village. Things bad gone on in this way for fifteen years, ever since the death of his father and mother. Spinster bad long since ceased to dream of what ‘‘might have been,” and become resigned to the fate of living in solitary bliss. Now. when Jed bad reached his forty-first year, there came a change. This change was in the shape of a school teacher of uncertain age, who, during the Summer, hail taken up her residence in the village. She never told how many terms of school she had taught; but this much the village knew, she had broken down her health in following the aforesaid vocation, and with her small savings settled in the village where she expected to recuperate. As it was perfectly natural, this teacher took to buying fresh eggs and green vegetables from Jed. The village agreed there was nothing in that to cause comment; but Miss Benson, as she was called, having been u teacher, and Jed having spent most of his life learning the art of making the most of things, found it hard to agree on the price of eggs, green peas, and the like; and, consequently, long and excited conversations took place in front of Miss Benson's house. The village, observing these, arid not knowing the cause, agreed that it was unheard of, outlandish, disgraceful, for that sickly school ma'am to set her cap for Jed Simpkins. Some of the gossip afloat in the village came to Jed’s ears, and at once set him to thinking. She cartainly was good at driving a bargain. It would seem rather nice to come in and find supper all ready to be eaten with no exertion on his part. And then her health bad improved wonderfully. She could take all that poultry off his bands, and as for weeding n garden, there was nothing belter for one in search of health. The more he thot of it the pleasanter the idea grew. Still, be had had his own way for fifteen years and bated to run any risks of losing it now. For several weeks Jed weighed the case pro and con. finally deciding in favor of the school teacher. After coming to a decision, the next important move was to ask her. Jed bad never hud any experience in this line, and was at a loss what to do. He pondered for some time and then u brilliant idea struck him. He went to the only store in the village which kept a line of books and purchased one with u glaring title and profusely illustrated with love scenes. He read this from beginning to end, memorizing a passage which he thot particularly good for his purpose.These preparations complete, Jed choose a beautiful moonlight evening (that was the kind in the book he had read) and repaired to Miss Benson’s. He wore his Sunday suit with a rosemary leaf stuck in the button hole. His hair was neatly parted from his forehead to the stiff white collar which ho wore ; his shoes were polished until the moonbeams sparkled and glinted on them as he walked. Arrived at Miss Benson's, he stood upon the step a few moments to repeat his passage, and then cave a loud knock. He heard footsteps approaching and at the sound his courage left him and with it the piece lie expected to speak. Jed turned to flee— but—too late ! The door was opened “ Howdy do, Miss Benson. 1 come to—-to-------” “Come in, come in. and take a chair.” Jed sat down in the nearest chair, wound his feet around the legs, fixed his gaze on one corner of the ceiling where the paper w asn't matched, and twirled his thumbs. “ Is there something I can do for you, Mr. Simpkins?” “ Yes, I—I— It’s mighty line weather we’re having, ain’t it ? ” “ Beautiful ! But it seems to me it isn’t like you to come calling unless it is pretty urgent business. Didn't I pay you enough for that lust dozen eggs I got from you ? I’m very sure. Mr. Simpkins. 1 gave you more than market prlco for them !” Jed was aware that something must be said. He strove to recollect the first words of his speech, but they were resolved into the gorgeous flowers In the paper design as he gazed stupidly at the wall. He twirled his thumbs, coughed, crossed his legs, and produced a large handkerchief of unbleached muslin. He sought to remove the evidences of embarrassment from his copper-hued complexion, for he felt very warm and knew he was blushing. Miss Benson was not an unappreciative spectator of Jed's discomfiture. She was a woman and a spinster. Could it be that-----? “Them’s pretty flowers on that paper,” suddenly came from Jed’s direction. Miss Benson acquiesced in silence. “That makes me think that if I could talk as flowery as I used to 1 might be able to—to—tell you that I think I have been charging yon too much for eggs—and every thing. I----I----” She laughed merrily : and her resentment gave way to anticipation. The emphasis on “you” had not escaped her notice, and "you” meant her! “Pin sure, Mr. Simpkins, your powers are still with you Do tell mo all about it. How nice it will be to get eggs for ten cents a dozen !’’ “Well, you see I have to figger pretty close in the poultry business. Now. countin' feedin’ and watebin and alt trouble, I can’t afford to sell eggs for less than a cent a piece. My folks come from Vermont, an’ they’re used to countin’ the difference atween zero and nothin’.” Jed stopped a minute to think of Ins speech : for this didn’t seem a bit like the story in the book. Miss Benson interposed---- “ But I don’t see why you should come to the conclusion that have been paying too much. I didn’t mean to. Perhaps you wouldn’t mind paying me back?’ Here was Jed’s opportunity. Some word or sound in what she had said seemed to turn the sw itch of memory. His speech from first to last, Hashed before him. He started violently : and she did also. He had said it—on his knees as the story said to. The rush of phrases, the succession of tender epithets had come and gone. He had grasped her slender hand as perdirections—and she Imd not resisted. He closed in a whirlwind of eloquence, asserting “immeasurable love’ and “undying affection,” declaring that her refusal would “blast the future of a life whose sole happiness had been the anticipations aroused by her acquaintance.” And then—he remembered saying, “I love you. and always shall." Jed was not flushed now. He was pale, and stood trembling with emotion—-yes, “emotion.” the book said. Fully five seconds had elapsed since the last word, and stil she seemed undecided. She had risen from her chair and stood behind it, evidently much agitated. She put out her hand and grasped the back of the chair. “She's overcome with the suddenness of it,” thought Jed or tried to think it. Vet she seemed very dignified and looked---! Miss Benson bad acquired a habit of decision and a keen insight into the nature of man. Her forty years had not left her so inexperienced as to be powerless in the face of any contingency —not even so extraordinary an event ax a proposal. If there were only some means of accomplishing it gracefully ! “I’ll Jo it,” she said, as she grasped her chair. Jed Simpkins was an honest farmer, and she had no fear of him. The humor of her predicament gave way to action. She trembled, swayed, and fell in a dead faint. Of course, she retained enough presence of mind to fall in Jed's direction. He simply couldn't avoid catching her. Miss Benson lay on the couch until Jed's clumsy foot-steps had ceased to comeback thru the door which he had left wide open. “I knew he'd run for a Doctor. He certainly made heroic efforts to revive me, tho!” She sprang lightly from the couch and ran to the mirror. “ Why, my hair is all disarranged ! Who could have imagined such a thing? Jed Simpkins, too ! Well, I won't lie here when he gets back. It’s 0:30 ! The Chicago train is due at 9:38. He can’t cover a half mile and return in ten minutes. I'll leave a note on tho table, “(lone to Chicago on No. 3.” and then hide until fa's gone—gone to— poor fellow ! ” Mary Benson, like every good spinster, was methodical. Order, regularity, and precision wore the captains of her conduct and guarded her life vigilantly. But where was that paper? She must have some. She looked on the stand, under It, on the mantel. but not even a scrap was seen. She was so methodical ! She now affirmed that thore had indeed been a madness in her method of keeping thing tidy. She had a pencil but no paper. A very dignified aseeot of the stairs, three at a bound, brought her to her room. She turned it as completely at variance with order as only a woman who “knows where she puts things” cun. No. 3 whistled. Then she remembered. Of course sho knew. That box of paper was in a chair on the south porch. But Jed Simpkins was coming ! She could hear him on the gravel walk. The gate clicked ! “Oh Tom ! I'm so glad !” she found herself saying, “I've something funny to tell you. You’re-----” The gate clicked again. “He's coming, Tom. Tell him, you’ll have to tell him ! Jed imd never walked so fast l efore. He got home i»efore the arrival of his composure. The unbleached muslin was dripping. “Well, I'd rather pitch hay a week than propose to an old maid Woman's Club President! My now shoes! all spoilt runniu’ thru the grass to Dock Snyders. So Miss Benson she bet her “brother”—darn him—she could live six weeks on thirty dollars? An’ that's why she stuck out fer eggs at ten cents !

Entertain all your friends in the Library. Always wear squeaky shoes and loud clothes, being careful not to sit still more than necessary. Always study in the Library. Study with some one—always. Never reserve a book—take it along. Don't Ik» so impolite as to ask who is reading the morning papers when you see any of the faculty sitting by the north window. Do not be punctilious about returning books on time. Have all your heart-to-heart talk, all your tete-e-lotes in the lust alcove. Never hunt for any thing—not even the dictionary. Ask the Librarian. She may not l e able to (Ind it. Talk out loud when the Librarian is not looking. Never allow books or references to interfere with personal friendships. Help yourself to the late magazines — never •‘charge ’ anything. Everything is free. Keep files of McCLURES, Everybody's. The North AMERICAN aod COLLIER'S in your desk, or at home under your table. Ix t Mr. Pray advertise them. Whenever you have nothing to do, go to the Library. But don’t visit with your gentleman friend. The Librarian can't do so. Never leave the Library without a book : but don't let the Librarian see. Alwuys forget to pay fia ne. Shur|KMi your pencils on the sheepskin of the Dictionary. Never make eyes across the Library. Sit at the same table. Hcmain in the Library until 12:00 M. sharp, and until 5:01 3 P. M. The Librarian will not care. Stay in the Library during Hhetoricals. Never thank the Librarian for anything. You couU have done it yourself. Do not be frightened when you hear a tapping in the Library. Keep on talking.Common Sense Rhymes There was a young lover named Martin, Whose love was too strong to dishearten: So he made up liis mind Some way he would find, To see the girl home without partin’ We all are familiar with Socky, He's bulky and burlesque and bloeky; ’Tis seldom he’ll bluff, But ’tis then plain enough He can ride his bluff like a jockey.

There Is a Senior named Brnsure Whom all the girls count a treasure. He likes every one And they say its fun To be uocorded the pleasure. Oh say! do you know Mr.----------? Well, his heart always beats with a thud. Just think of its knocking ! ! Imagine how shocking To think of its pumping hi9 blood 1 !! A Junior once thought it unique Some FeS for to snique : So he got some up stairs And then, O what airs Pervaded the gym for a wique.
