The Students Of The Stevens Point Sta.te Normal School S 5Salutation
In Greek mythology, Iris is represented as a beautiful virgin deity with golden wings, and clothed in purple raiment. She was the messenger of the gods, who conveyed divine commands to mankind. The bridge by which she descended to earth from her celestial home, was the rainbow. When man beheld its splendid colors, he rejoiced, for it was symbolic of divine favor. He loved and honored the radiant goddess, for she was ever interested in his welfare and happiness.
May the Iris of 1907, too, go forth, bearing messages of hope and love to all who now are treading the corridors of S. P. N., and to those whose foot-steps echoed through its halls in the past. That everyone will accept it and cherish it as a sacred memento of our student days, our Alma Mater, and our President and Faculty, is the sincere wish of the Iris Staff.To Bar President rlohn ¥. Sims, Who Has Won The love $nd Respect GFThe Student Body, This Yolame Is“The Purple And The Gold”
Let other Normals boast Of victories galore,
Of laurels never lost,
Of triumphs by the score;
Let them tell you of their prowess,
Of warriors strong and bold.
But their colors ever lower
To the “Purple and the Gold.”
Our men are all victorious,
Thru every state around;
Our athletes and debaters
Are winning great renown.
Tho we’re proud of all Wisconsin,
Whose fame’s in story told,
Our heart’s with Stevens Point Normal And the “Purple and the Gold.”
To the banks of “Old Wisconsin,”
When these years are past and gone, When as schoolmates we have parted,
And our lessons all are done,
We’ll return and show our comrades, We’re as loyal as of old,
And cheer them on to victory,
’Neath the “Purple and the Gold.”The SchoolFaculty

As Seen by the Students
‘•Most potent, grave and reverend signiors,
Onr very noble and approved good masters,” VVe know your virtues are a thousand fold,
And worthy in song and story to he told.
But list to words of censure, words of praise,
Give heed to students full of Wisdom's lays, And may you take them all with right good will.
President .J. F. SIMS.
All honor thee, our worthy President.
Compassionate, high-minded, noble-souled, Whose kindly voice and hearty laugh oft sent Discouraged students away consoled.
Thy eloquence our very souls hath stirred.
By precept and example thou has taught Kindness to all in deed, in thought, and word, Good among us thou hast ever wrought.
Always to her your plan books bring
Neatly written, in thought profound.
Be not discouraged if everything With gory fluid abounds.
A master she at finding flaws.
Delinquents do her patience try ,
But faithful ones meet kind applause
And ne’er in vain for help do sigh.
None know him but to love him,
With kindness all hearts he does win;
His tests are a terror and fright,
And cause many a sleepless night
To poor students; but all the same,
If any fail, him ne’er they blame.
Fraulein Gray, so German students say, Smooths ditliculties from their way.
With maxims gleaned from German lore,
Builds up their character more and more.
Though fraught with ills and many nerves, From duty’s path she never swerves.
Mathematics is no fun,
Work and work and never done.
Props, in Al. Geora. arid Trig.
Make us dig and dig and dig.
But Collins, that most witty man,
Cheers us as no other can.
Observation and reviews,
Institutes at certain dates,
Do not give him time for “blues,”
For they work him, early, late.
Manual training is his forte,
Teaching boys and girls to create
Models in wood-craft of every sort.
Bugs, beetles, birds,
Snakes, spiders, ilies, Weeds, flowers, herbs,
Attract her eyes.
All Nature to her so dear,
To us she makes full clear.
Upon the third floor, away from the noise Of busy working girls and boys,
Professor Sanford holds his sway,
And keeps students working thru night and day.
In methods of teaching, an expert,
As all who know him will assert,
In presentation, most specific,
In new ideas most prolific,
In class time ho is most terrific
If pupils unprepared should be On facts concerning stars, land, or sea.
Only in the Gym
Her voice doth ring In accents clear.
She comes right near With us to chat,
And ever hath A kindly smile
Cares to beguile.
A calm, chaste scholar of poetic mind,
Who goodness, truth and beauty in life does find, Who teaches us in poetry to feel
A love for nature, art, and high ideal.
So merry, light-hearted and free,
This dainty maid of high degree.
Smiles on her lips, songs in her heart,
She sheds good cheer from dawn to dark.
No wonder the D. S. all say
They love her more and more each day.
With wisdom and wiles she teaches the art Of cooking---------the way to man's heart.
Treble clef and chorus, too.
Try her patience Earnest work and skill so true.
But that wretched chorus
One sweet comfort brings,
When in perfect harmony
It “The Pig Tail” sings.
Teaching little hands to do
Pretty things and useful, too.
Teaching little feet to go
In rhythmic step, soft and low.
Teaching little hearts to feel
Others’ sorrows, others' weal.
A lady so stately and tall,
With a swish! swish! sounding thru hall, Announces her coining ere seen.
No trille escapes her eye so keen.
Poor practice teachers tremble oft
Before learning to know and love One endowed with kindness from above.
For thoughts and expressions “perse,”
On “Grandpa’’ call in 323.
In discussing new propagand-er,
Most eloquent doth he expand er.
At recaptions and spreads, we mark.
He’s ever ready for a good lark.
Modest and meek,
She scarce doth speak.
With love bedight
And room so bright,
Our hearts she wins,
And pleasure brings.
“Tally” thinks it is a sin
Smiles from pretty girls to win,
Works them hard in garden-making.
Planting, weeding, also raking.
Lean of frame and large of heart.
Well in school he acts his part
She twirls the string of golden beads That round her n«x-k is hung.
As Irish jokes and anecdotes
Fall glibly from her tongue, in teaching painting, drawing, art,
Didactics ever form a part.
Sweet, serene and gentle—some scarce know her name. Students of Latin and German proclaim She, translating makes easy, constructions the same.
Lovingly, silently working, her one desire To make others happier, better, higher.
Pleasant and sweet, with eyes so brown,
A smile from her smooths out a frown.
Full of consideration mild,
For every practice teacher and child.
Fond of theses, outlines and exams Is this jolly good-natured man.
Reading lists, from him. of endless length,
Call on us for courage, moral strength.
Versed in ethics, logic, deep and sound,
Knotty problems do not him confound.
Ladies’ hearts cares he not to win,
Care-free, jolly, good-natured “Spin.”
“Cleanliness to godliness is next.”
This forever is her text.
Marks, and more than ordinary wear,
Cause her worry toil and care.
If in her good grace you wish to be,
Books keep clean, or pay the fee.
One sits among them who but recently came,
To make him a mark in our great Hall of Fame.
The etymology of ev’ry word he knows,
He, pleading for reform in “spellin,” ardent grows.
We love her pleasing disposition,
Her dimpled cheeks and laughing eyes,
“You’ll see a wonderful transition
When once my Dutch is up, ” she cries.
To us it seems her passing ire
But makes opinions of her higher.
In the library rules a maid.
More than willing to lend her aid
In the seeking of facts obscure:
Who insists with an air demure,
That no whispering she will endure.
Her brown eyes, that e'er beam with fun,
Show the wit that from her may come,
When her toil for the day is done.
Every morning just 'fore eight,
Yellow slips she signs first rate
Bearing some excuse, you know,
That, forsooth, would stand no show In the eyes of J. F. S.
Students all, we must confess,
Hope she'll not from this digress.
Here’s to the ladies of our faculty! They always got us out of scrapes; They keep our secrets;
And make our lives a continual round of joy.
May their paths he strewn with roses And their beauty never fade!

And Risk always means the right thing to say. But sometimes forgets it until the next day.

In hopes that the climate will straighten her mouth. To know the Rowlands is surely a treat.
One noted for music, the other for feet.
And Pearl (she's a Salter,) ambitious and grand. To teach the whole earth she bravely has planned, A ml she will be aided by Elizabeth S.
How well they’ll sneeeed we don’t need to guess.
And Schweppe—her jokes are great souvenirs To carry for life; she’ll go crazy 1 fear About all the boys—they’re always her theme, Without them her life would be surely a dream.
And there is Weinandv, he has time to smile.
And always is ready to chat for a while.
It’8 hnrd to keep track of the conquests (?) lie makes,
And he must account for the hearts (?) that he breaks.
The Smith girls are nervous and never at ease. Not so with Miss Whitney, she’s easy to please.
Alin inn you know is considered a prize,
Any subject you mention, she always is Wise.
Miss Stinchfield s a girl who never could sing, She thinks that the rest of us don’t know a thing. The theory’s well founded, but its hard as a rule To got us to own it at this Normal School.
And last but not least is sweet Liza Yates,
Imagine her smile as for Benny she waits.
It’s been just that way since school first, began— Eliza’s been waiting to see her Moran.
And now this is all—all Seniors, good bye,
If you can’t catch my meaning at least make a try. In making a rhyme and telling it all,
It can’t all be sweet for some must be gall.
5.1Senior Class Prophecy
1 was very much surprised one day to receive a letter from Mr. Hart, a noted lawyer of New York, to the effect that I had fallen heir to an immense fortune accumulated by an unknown relative to whom I was nearest of kin. The problem which naturally presented itself at once was how I was to spend all this money.
I decided Anally that travel would be the mod profitable use to which I could put it and recalling the vivid interest which i took in the obscure country of India, during my history course in the Stevens Point Normal, 1 made up my mind to set out at once for this strange, mysterious land.
A number of friends and myself made up a party and started on our interesting journey in May.
After a delightful sea voyage, wo found ourselves at the mouth of the Ganges River. Here we took
a river steamer and proceeded to the sacred city of Allahabad.
Hero with much difficulty our party secured permission to enter one of the many sacred temples.
After passing thru several beautifully decorated corridors we entered the inner tabernacle and came into the presence of the dervish who has the power of revealing the future.
I was seized with a longing to learn something of the future of the class of '07 and offered him a large sum of money to reveal what we wished to know. He refused the offer and we increased the amount until it reached a fabulous sum, when he finally' consented to do ns we wished.
He seated us upon the floor iu the form of a half moon and proceeded to the farther end of the tabernacle where we noticed a large white curtain.
Suddenly an awful darkness surrounded us and everything became as still as death. The air was laden with the sickening odor of incense, and weird lights played upon the curtain. These finally took definite form and before us we saw a poor back room i i a New York tenement house. Seated at a plain deal table in one corner of the room was a man evidently eating his breakfast. As he turned his head to look wearily out of the dirty window, we recog lized the once handsome features of our distinguished orator, Harold Martin. In another corner a care-worn poorly clad woman bent over a wash-tub and shifting her gaze from the tub of clothes to the man at the table, she disclosed to our view the features of our friend, Lillian Massey, now Mrs. Martin. As wo gazed, the door at the other side of the room opened and an agent, bearing what appeared to be a patent folding wringer, entered. From his shock of curly hair and indispensable smile, which had bewitched (7) so many girls, we know him to be our former secretary, Oliver Weinandy.
The light fades and another scene takes shape before our eyes. We see a majestic vessel floating peacefully upon the broad expanse of the mighty Atlantic, and leaning over the rail with the moonlight streaming down upon them, we see Reese Jones with his arm pressed lovingly around the slender waist of Miss Julia Hntz.
Sitting near the companion-way is an elderly lady with a very disgusted expression upon her
face, showing plainly that she has little love for the opposite sex. Upon closer examination we see
revealed the face of Miss Eliza Yates and we wonder if the expression is due to disappointment in love.
Again the scene changes and now we are in the interior of a cozy suburban home. The whole house is ablaze with light, so we know at once that something unusual is taking place. Soon two well known forms take their places at the door of the reception hall. They are Mr. and Mrs. T. M. Risk, the latter once Miss Ethel Smith.
Soon guests begin to arirve and among them are many familiar faces. We recognize a tall, well dressed lady as Miss Alice Jnkeman, who has won world-wide fame as a prima donna. With her is another class mate, Mrs. Dora Huber Carlcton, who is now a widow.
The next to enter is a tall, light-haired wo nan accompanied by a thick set, red-haired man, and immediately my mind reverts to the scenes which once took place at the corner of Main and Division Streets in which Hannah Brunstnd and Duncan Reid were the principal actors. They are now happily married and have settled down at the Brnnstud farm.
Everything is going along gaily and smoothly' when suddenly the dining room door bursts open and a much frightened maid appears wringing her hands and screaming. When she fiually gains her
breath she seems to bo imparting a thrilling experience, for as soon as she has finished several of the
men rush into the kitchen and when they return they' bring a dishevelled, seedy looking tramp who has evidently been found in the pantry , for he still holds a piece of pic in his hand. What is iny surprise and horror when a sudden brightening of the colored lights reveal the features of Mr. Leslie D. Bennett, now known as “Weary Willie."
51Before I have time to recover from my astonishment, the seen© slowly fades and another takes its place. This seems to be the interior of a large lecture Imll and already the seats arc well filled with women. Upon examination 1 make up my mind from genernl appearances and from the number of pet eats held lovingly in motherly (f) arms that this is an obi maid’s convention.
We do not have long to wait. The President takes her place upon the platform and I ant perfectly astounded to Sc - in the stout lady who takes the chair, no other than our old clans jollier, Laura
Diffondarfer. 1 decide at once thnt there ntny b? other old nequnintenees among the crowd, and so
scrutinize the faces closely and I am pained to see so many of the once blooming lasses who mude
up the class of 1907.
There is Manrien Schweppe with pretty little cork-screw curls down each side of her painted cheeks, then Winifred Stinehfield. whom I hardly recognize in the portly lady with her hair combed smoothly back into a knot on top of her head, and Kate McMulkin with her sad sweet smile is still looking for n man. Then over in one corner I notice a modest, retiring little person who, when she is called upon for a talk, tarns a bright scarlet and this characteristic alone tells me that it is timid Ella Meloney.
On the other side of the hall I notice a group engaged in excited conversation and I wonder what they are so excited about, but as soon as I recognize them 1 know at once that the subject of their conversation must be the good old times at Stevens Point. The group is made tip of a medium sized, thin faced woman who docs most of the talking and I smile to myself as I realize that in the passing years Hilda has not been able to overcome her old failing of talking too much. .Vext there is a tali, gaunt, dark-haired lady, holding a copy of Goethe’s “ Faust ” in her hand: 1 know her at once to be Margaret Dickow. There is a pink-cheeked matronly looking woman wearing a continual smile who proves to be our fresh and blooming Louise Mathe, and a very old-maidish looking individual who lacks none of the Characteristics of false teeth, false curls ami a sour expression. This lady puzzles me for a time but finally I can trace the familiar features of Blanche Means.
Being so much interested In the scene, I fail to notice the opening of the main door and therefore am entirely at a loss to know the cause of the President’s scream and horror stricken face, and the Confusion which takes place all over the room. Tin women all make one rush for the President's chair and there stand huddled closely together, hugging their cats whose backs are raised high in fright.
Finally in the extreme end of the room I perceive the figure of a man holding a dog by the collar and from the mellow laugh which issues from his handsome lips, I recognize George Everson who is now a celebrated lawyer in Chicago where he lives with his beloved consort, formerly Florence Whitney. With the advent of this illustrious personage, the scene fades and is replaced by another.
This time it is a street scene in one of the large American cities. The streets are thronged with gaily dressed people who s em to be enjoying themselves in spite of the noise made by the clanging gongs of street-cars, automobile horns, etc. Conspicuous among the crowd of vehicles is a large red touring car in which sits a fashionably dressed party consisting of a man and three women. All the faces seem familiar and thinking over the former members of the class of ’07, I decide that these arc Otto Krienke, the millionaire proprietor of a large dyeing establishment, his wife, Mabel Howland Krienke, her sister, Myrtle Rowland, who still follows the teaching profession, and Clara Moeschler, famous as a lecturer on woman’s suffrage. As the car stops in front of a large department store, two ladies step out and are greeted very cordially by the occupants of the automobile. J have little difficulty in recognizing Mrs. Julia King Ninman and Mrs. Edna Kruger Norton both looking well and supremely happy.
When this scene passes away it is replaced by a scene among the ruins of the Roman Forum. A party of women, evidently school teachers, from the care-worn expression upon their faces and the number of note books in evidence, are walking about among the mouldering ruins. Tt seems to bo near evening and the tourists are preparing to return to their hotel. As they pass under the ancient pillars of the gateway, i recognize Verlie Freeman, as sweet and happy as ever, Mabel Laing, wearing a benign expression, Isabel Leonard, vivacious as of yore, Hazel Martin, her coal black tresses blown about by the evening breeze, Katherine McNamara who, from the smile upon her face, seems to be the same light-hearted Katharine, and walking slowly behind the others we see a small portly person whom we know at once us Verna Phillips.
After they pass, the light slowly fades and when it appears again the scene upon the curtain is that of a desert plain. In the foreground can b- seen the figures of two women missionaries, one of whom seems to be preaching while the other is ubsorbed in prayer. They are Fern Love and Addie Hansen. The natives seem to be more interested in the brightly colored ribbons the women have on, than in the sermon. Finally their patience seems ti give out. for at a signnl from their chief, two of the stalwart natives rush forward and seize the women bv the hair. I fear for their safety for a while but suddenly there tWeins to be a disturbance at one side and out rushes the tall, manly figure of Rev.
ViGordon Smith followed by several soldiers who proceed to scatter the natives and reassure the frightened women. But the excitement has proven too much for Miss Hansen, for she suddenly falls back into Mr. Smith’s arms. He, with his usual presence of mind, lays her upon the ground and rushes off into
the thicket and soon returns accompanied by a tall, dark lady who carries a small black medicine
case upon which is engraved her name, E. Seibel, M. D. Under her skillful treatment Miss Hansen soon revives and then the scene disappears.
The next shows a busy American wharf. Several large steamers lie at anchor and the dark waters of the bay arc dotted with smaller craft of all kinds. The eye is at once attracted by a gay party boarding a small yacht, riding at anchor a short distance from the shore. The paity consists of five well dressed women and the same number of men. We know from their freedom from restraint and their light-heartedness that they are taking a well earned holiday from the cares of life. The group is made up of Mr. and Mrs. David Olson who act as chaperones; Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Halverson, (the lady was formerly known as Myrtle Plavman); Miss Viola Pelunek, a celebrated nctress, accompanied by a prominent railroad magnate who had long been suing for the right to lavish his millions upon her alone; Mr. and Mrs. Chapman, Mrs. Chapman still the same old light-hearted Alice; and Mr.
and Mrs. James Burns, the latter once known among us as Jessie Burke.
After this scene there is a pause and we hear the dervish muttering something about large numbers and hunger, and we decide that there were more people in the class than we realized when wt made our request. But finally another scene takes shape upon the curtain, and this time it looks very much like the interior of a circus tent, with lady and gentlemen actors performing in the rings. One lady rider especially attracts a great deal of attention, and naturally I begin to take more than casual notice of her. What is my surprise when I recognize Miss Harriet Smith. On the wire overhead, daintily balancing themselves by means of large Japanese parasols, are two graceful tight-rope walkers and these also seem familiar. They are Emma Linsc and Almina Wise.
Outside the tent is a large ice cream and le nonade stand in front of which a vender is advertising the superior qualities of his wares, while behind the counter, demurely pouring out red lemonade, stands his wife, Maud Nicol Barber.
Suddenly there is a commotion near the side show tent, and turning quickly in that direction, I see tho fat lady issuing forth to secure a dish of ice cream while the performance is in progress in the main tent. In spite of the addition in avoirdupois, I recognize in this person my old friend Pearl Salter.
The final scene is preceded by a flash of bright light whioh illuminates the entire curtain. As we gaze, almost blinded by its brilliance, it gradually changes from one to another of the colors of the spectrum and finally maize and Alice blue, blended beautifully, form the back ground. In the fore ground upheld by two immense marble pillars, appears an arch upon which is inscribed in letters of living light, these words, “Well Done, Class of 1907.”

STTo The Seniors
Classmates, we are soon to leave you. Say good-bve to those we know;
We are standing on a summit.
Looking on the scenes below,
We’ve worked hard to gain the footing On which now we proudly stand;
Many a hardship, many a struggle Has befall’n this Senior band Since the time when first we started To explore this unknown height.
Many a month we’ve toiled on bravely When the summit was in sight.
As we view the life before us,
We see battles still ahead,
For our work is not yet finished—
It has just commenced, instead.
As in other lands you wander,
Ponder well the lessons then We were taught, and by them profit In remembrance of S. P. X.Sh thou tin jokes made by the faculty,
Oive them countenance and audible expression,
The less their merit, the greater thy desert.
Seem thou attentive, even tho thou comprehend‘st Not an iota of their learned discourse.
Give every professor thy voice but none thine ear.
Do not dull thy brain with too much study of each new-fangled science or art. Beware of being caught conversing in the assembly room:
But. being caught, do thou face the music bravely.
Vowing vengeance on him who hath reported thee.
Take no teacher's censure, but be severe In passing judgment on schoolmates and faculty.
Be not a Hunker, but a bluffer be,
Flunking dulleth the edge of thy teacher s patience;
Bluffing exaltetli thee in his estimation.
And high marks will be rewarded thee.
This above all: do thou tread in the footsteps Of thine illustrious predecessors of 1007,
And it must Follow as the night the day That thy fame will resound among the spheres And be re-echoed to the earth again.
“jolly Junior girls' at the time of their organization in the fall. What the young men lacked in numbers, they made up in popularity, and. when officers were elected, we managed to find three who were capable and willing enough to serve. Sam Wadleigh was our choice for President ; Guy Cnrleton we deemed a wise choice for Treasurer; and Chaimcey Alhambra Mortell. just the right fellow for Marshall. Allie Schulze first became prominent as Vice-President, and Clara Farrell, as Secretary of the class of ’08.
Our reception was the “grand finale'' of the series of class receptions. We attempted to express our feelings regarding the foot-hall team, and encouraged them in their splendid work, by honoring them with an invitation to our party. Everyone accepted. They were afterwards heard to say (all this in the strictest confidence) that the crowning pleasure was the rare privilege of escorting members of the Junior fair sex to their homes.
Our experiences with the Seniors have been many and varied. We have been engaged in exciting contests with them about the flying of class colors, and the wearing of the scarlet and gray. We have been entertained right royally (even though in Hades) by these same elders. We cherish pleasant memories of our relations with the class, and are loathe to think of their departure from old S. P. X.
The class of 1908 showed its loyalty to the school by the delegations which it sent to the Inter--Normal Oratorical Contest at White-water. and to the Annual Debate at Oshkosh. Tho we did not win victory in either instance, we endeavored to show the orator and the debaters that we were “back of them.”
Then here s to the Juniors! May the memory of their exploits, and the fame of their accomplishments live in the hearts of all who know them!

tFrom An Alumnus
In looking over tin history of the Stevens Point Normal school we are reminded that sufficient time has elapsed to throw about the institution that peculiar spiritual quality and character that gives it a personality that is not directly connected with its building, its faculty or its students. All have changed remarkably since we were wont to tread its stately halls: but what loyal alumnus can unfeelingly thrust aside the occasional impulse to revisit the scenes of his early trials and successes, or can he unmindful of the swell of pride on the receipt of “good news” and compliments for the Stevens Point school. We love the institution for itself, its hallowed associations and what it represents to us.
In its thirteen years of existence who can estimate the good our school has wrought? Who will measure the waves of influence that have been daily set in motion there and are even now rippling off', ever outward, and broadening even to the remotest parts of tlie earth and toward all eternity.
As I scan the pag? of names of those who have received the diploma. I connect none with any incident for which any of us need blush in shame. It is in truth a roll of honor and may it ever remain such. On the other hand some names must stand out in our mind in prominence and honor for worthy deeds accomplished. Though the oldest of us have seen eleven years of activity in the great world, yet in the keen competition of these rapid days we are rated as all still young. More remarkable deeds are yet to be accomplished, and with the swiftly passing years we will day by day la more and more proud (and justly so) of our enrollment among the alumni of the Stevens Point Normal School. We trust the reunion of 1007 will he a large and an enthusiastic one. It is time for the larger classes to begin thinking of the decennial celebrations and reunions.—John T. Clements, '06.
T3The Psychology of Poor Children
A WOMAN investigator recently discovered that in the fifteen blocks of mansions on Fifth Avenue from Fifty-Seventh Street to Seventy-Second Street there are only fifteen children. To ascertain the average per block of brownstone and marble is a simple example in arithmetic; but when you turn off only a few steps from the avenue and get into the East Side where the herding together of population reaches into the hundreds, yes thousands per block, the calculation becomes more difficult. On Fifth Avenue automobiling is comparatively easy : but I know of a woman who rather complainingly said that she dreaded to run her car down East Seventy-Sixth Street, for there arc always so many children in the way. They are such a nuisance, these children who can no more be kept off the street than kittens can Ik kept in a basket 1
I still remember keenly my first impression when I wandered thru a crowded tenement district of New York City. [t was akin to the uncanny sensation one has when he visits an empty old cellar infested with rats. The floor and every crevice is alive with vermin, and one wonders how so many creatures can thrive in such a barren, sunless habitation. So these dirty tenement quarters swarm, as it were, with rats of children, scampering across your path, filling the streets, peering out of the windows above you, crawling behind garbage cans, clambering upon wagons and boxes, disappearing into hallways, hiding and chasing each other everywhere.
It is impossible to use in this connection such honored expressions as ' romping on the greensward.’ Thousands of these children know little about sod and trees. The other day a large roomful of Italian school children from the lower East Side were lustily singing a Spring song in which the w’ord dew appeared. When they were questioned, not one knew what d xo is. Brick, iron, mortar and pavement arc not calculated to acquaint children with the drops of dew about which poets sing. Is it any wonder that these poor children have a psychology all their own?
Paolo Lambroso, the daughter of the Italian criminologist, recently wrote a remarkable psychological book on “The Life of the Infant.” In this she frankly recognizes the fact of poverty, and the effect of a false and unjust social system on the normal development of the child. She fearlessly ecm pares the child of poverty with the child of comfort, and reveals certain tragic differences which the schools can hardly hope to wipe out. This good woman asked of many poor children such questions as ‘Whom do you most love, and why?’ ‘What do you like best?’ ‘What would you do if you had a great deal of money?’ Running thru all the answers was a sad note of hunger. It was the stomach which governed the reply. These children,PaoloLombroso found, ‘exhibit in its crudest foim the instinct of self conservation and the will to live.’
To go into detail and show how privation and an artificial environment effect tlie feelings and mental imagery of the city poor would he too long a story. Take these children and give them a Summer outing of but a week or two. and they rarely fail to gain pounds of weight and foot pounds of physical energy. Now, if so brief a change can make such a telling impression on their underfed bodies, what wonderful changes await their starved souls with surroundings more decent and natural. As it is, the tenement child has a psychology all its own.

,1Fair was she to behold
This maiden of twenty summers.
Black were her eyes as the berry That grows on the thorn by the wayside.
Bwa-yea, my little owlet Sang Ignatius, he the comet,
As he sang the song of children That our little Addie taught him.
Bright was her face with smiles,
And words of welcome and gladness
Fell from her beautiful lips
As she gazed upon Everson’s headdress.
Before the door on summer evenings Sat the little Royawatha Many things our Blanchie taught him Of the stars that shine in heaven.OhiyesB
In the fall of ’05. the tribe of Ohiycsa first assembled and swore allegiance to their mighty chief. Devoehaha. Under her guidance we grew to be a strong and energetic band and laid the foundation for future success in literary work. On November tenth we assembled in heap bright robes and war paint and held our annual pow-wow. After the war dance, our chief Deyoehaha laid down the sceptre of power which she had wielded with such might and Burra-watha. the chief’s daughter, began to rule our mighty tribe which had grown two-fold. One evening she brought to our camp a skin of which the papooses made a wonderful banner.
One day in January, a little pale-face whom we called Engletesa. wandered into our camp and became our leader. We followed her to distant lands where we revelled in music and poetry. After our extensive travels, we returned to our old camp fires where one of our joyful maidens, Parkeewis, was chosen to head our band. With the awakening of spring and the arrival of apple blossoms, we showed our Indian skill in making Sissebacpiet which we sold to our paleface friends.
After selecting the maiden, Hoft'makomis to govern our tribe upon our return to the hunting grounds in the autumn, we disbanded and thus ended the first year of history made by the Ohiyesa.
September ’06 found our Indians assembling one by one around the smouldering fires along the old Wisconsin, where we hada medicine meeting. October twelfth we held our open meeting at which seven maidens of the tribe of Obi.vesa presented a pantonline. “The Famine.' ’ a scene from Hiawatha. and then treated their friends to Sissebaqnet.
After leading us successfully thru the land of the Ojibways, a new chief Ilansenesa came into power. During the cold winter months the braves from miles around were royally entertained by roasts, debates and music after which a sumptuous feast was served. Next, a jolly blustering, maidenly-squaw took up the duties of chief and again we all eagerly began our social minglings. We were all furthered along the path of glory by our all-inspiring. Meansahontas, she the mighty, who performed her duties with rigid punctuality and conferred with the all-powerful Royawatha about the welfare of our tribe.
Thus we close our glorious career with a whoop and a shout—
Ohivesa. Ohivcsa. Saxes, Foxes and Ojibways!
Pawnees, Mohawks and Oncidas!
All the craft of the Wabenes!
This splendid year is going fast,
And all good times will soon be passed But we’ll remember where’er we be,
Our good old Normal Society—
Tho’ wc are sad and hopes have fled,
And dark lowers the tempest overhead Still one star shines out, strong and br
To lead us with its cheering light — Arena!
In happy homes that light will shine.
In princely halls, with ladies fine In lowliest huts with love divine,
So will be famed in every clime-

Geneva Mauxeth. President Declaimer Clara Moewhler. President.Now it. came to pass in the ninth month, on the seventh day of the month, in the year nineteen hundred and six, that the mighty chief of the Arena assembled her forces, saying unto them. “Rejoice and be glad, O Arenites! for during this year we shall prosper, we shall do marvellous things and shall conquer all the other nations even by our eloquence. Be ye now doers.” And the people gave ear unto these sayings and hid the words in their hearts.
And it came to pass that the Arena sent messengers unto the three nations, the Ohi-yesa, Athenaeum and Forum, that dwelt in the same valley saying, “In the tenth month, on the twenty-sixth day of that month, come into the gymnasium and the Arena will you entertain as a token of good will.” Accordingly on the day they all assembled, and they marvelled at the miracles performed by the Arenites. When the eleventh hour drew nigh they departed, every man unto his place.
And it came to pass in process of time that the Arenites sent a messenger unto the powerful nation of Athenaeumites, challenging them to an “Old Fashioned Spelling Bee” to be held on the twenty-third day of
the eleventh month. And they answered saying, “Let it be according unto your words.” Each nation then chose twelve men, and gathered themselves together for the fight. And the Athenaeum went up against the migthty force of the Arena, on the day. For a time a fierce battle of words raged, but the Athenaeumites could not withstand the enemy, and there remained not so much as one of them.
And it was a custom in this same valley, for each nation, once a year, to send two warriors to enter into a declamatory combat. On the appointed day there were great rumors in all the camps concerning the strength of their own combatants. Some cried one thing, some another, for the great assembly was confused. Then each warrior came forth and spake unto the people. After the contest a silence fell upon the crowd, and the judge arose and spake, “Behold. I have given the Arena contestant the first place.” When the judge had spoken these words unto them, with one accord the people lifted up their voices, and shouted. Thus were all the other nations subdued before the Arenites. And there was great rejoicing thruout the whole land.

jg HE school year just closed has been one of great success for the Athenaeum. New members have been admitted, strengthening the work of the organization and adding to the interest of the programs.
The purpose of the society is to do the most for the individual member, and to attain this end, the work has been planned. Besides the regular work of a general literary order such as debates, reviews, readings, etc., much has been done along the line of parliamentary practice. It is proposed to make this part of the program still more prominent in the future.
Good society work can be maintained only thru the hearty co operation of the members and we trust that the standard will be raised higher and higher.

Some time previous to the contest, the various delegations met at the Normal School and marched in a body to the church. The student hands from Platteville and White-water contributed the music for the occasion. After arriving at the church, the period of waiting for the contest to begin, was taken up by the various schools in singing their numerous school songs.

The Male Quartet, the Glee Club, and the Treble Clef are the musical organizations of the school. They furnish music for rhetorical programs, and give one or two public concerts during the year. The singers of the student body have always recognized the value to be derived from the training given in these clubs, and hence, plenty of applicants have always been on hand. The past year has seen good, faithful work on the part of those societies, and they have yet to disappoint the first audience.

Senior Girls' Basket Ball Team
Elementary Girls’ Basket Ball TeamFoot Ball Season 1906-7
When school opened in the fall of 1906. the football prospects for the season looked far from bright. Only a small number of men, suited to the game, were available, for many of the old men had left and few of the new ones seemed interested. Thus, under adverse circumstances, and without a coach, tho ably led by their captain, the boys went to work with a will, exhibiting much energy and grit. As a result the S. P. X. Football team lost but one game out of the six which it played this season.
As the football season advanced, the prospects brightened. New rules had been adopted which made the boys play with renewed vigor. The good spirit shown and the fine team work done will long be remembered by those interested in football.
With the film material which is now in school to draw from, the football team of 1907-8 promises to be one that will add extensive honor and glory to our Alma Mater and her purple and gold.

Definition and Origin of Nick Names:
“Goo”—A mixture used in cementing broken hearts and box cars, a gluey substance that will stand severe strain. This condign name first left human lips in connection with this virtuous personage while he was “pitching” a game of ball. Before throwing the sphere he spat upon it and as a warning to the batter called out. “Look out, Bill, here comes a goo ball.”
“Strawberry”—A contraction of strawberry blond—a person having hair and complexion similar in color to that of a weathered straw pile; named thus by man because of his resemblance to a straw pile.
“Slim”—Pertaining to the slender; having no surplus fat—void of all fatty flesh. This name arose from the grace and elegance of our captain, while on the field in a basketball game.
‘•Dog”—A genus of digitigrade—a descendant of the wolf.—a long-legged animal of indefinite value to man: can be found in every country where the human race exists. It is capable of domestication and when tamed becomes a valuable companion to ladies, making a strong and faithful pro-
tector. Dubbed thus because of tbo guttural sounds this being makes while playing basket-ball.
“Cop”—A male member of the human race used in keeping other members in order; a person hired by the city to stay out nights and turn a watchful eye on all female persons out after 9 P. M. So named because of the position of his father-in-law on the city police force.
“Sliver”—A splinter: a long continued piece: a sharp, slender fragment of material that lodges under the skin. So called because of the robust, athletic figure this heavy individual possesses.
“Gim”—An abbreviation of gimlet—an instrument used in boring holes, a sharpnosed piece of metal very essential in a carpenter’s kit. Called by this name because of a peculiar habit this individual had. when a boy. of boring into affairs, both public and private.
“Stiffie—A person, thing or being that can contort its mouth, limbs and fingers into many shapes and forms. .So called because of the suppleness of his limbs and jaw-bone.

Track TeamTennis Association
This association was organized in the spring of 1895. Two courts were laid out in what was then the northwest corner of the campus.
Owing to the sandy nature of the soil, and the fact that the grounds had recently been graded, considerable difficulty was encountered. As an experiment, furnace cinder was used to make a playing surface on the soft sand foundation. The labor was furnished by the members of the association, and the money for material for back-stops and fences was advanced by Professors Sanford and Culver. If H. L. Gardner, ’97, looks after his political fences as well and thorolv as he did the building of our back-stops, he will not often bo defeated.
After two seasons’ trial, it was found impracticable to make a good court with the material used, and the matter was brought to the notice of the local regent, Mr. II. O. Raymond, who authorized the purchase of sufficient clay to cover the courts to the depth of five inches. This was done, and since then the courts have been, and still are in excellent condition.
The membership has varied thru the years from twenty to eighty. There were always enough to keep the courts busy. Notwithstanding the fact that most of the members have played their first game on these courts, some very good players have been turned out. Among these may be mentioned Lucius Allen ’00, winner of tournaments both here and in northwestern Wisconsin, B. E. Brown, '06, winner of several prizes at tournaments in Indiana, and W. W. Culver, '99, who won out in competition with nineteen others for a place on the U. W. tennis team of '03. Other strong players were Lees, '99, Rockwell, ’00, Schofield and K. Pray, ’01, Ogden, '02, Clark, ’04 and H. E. Culver, ’06. Of the ladies, Ellida Moen and Genevieve Miller come to mind as among the most enthusiastic players of recent years.
The present vigorous membership has some very promising material and bids fair to equal the records of its predecessors.
The financial difficulties incident to the begin ings of most such organizations, were finally overcome and for some years past the association has steadily maintained a small balance in its treasury.
While the recreational element has been the dominant note in this association from the beginning, there has been enough competition to give spice and flavor to the game; and from time to time, challenges have been issued to other organizations for inter-club tournaments. For various reasons, none of these have materialized; and the only tournaments held have been wholly local. These, however, have been taken up with enthusiasm and successfully carried out, always with marked improvement in the general play of the members as a prominent result. It is hoped and believed that the present season will see an even greater gain in all that goes to make good tennis.Tennis Court
The turning Nature-ward of certain great leaders was the inspiration that lifted educational methods out of the benumbing influence of the Dark Ages. Rabelais (1843) portrayed his hero, Gargantua, as the perfect flower of a well rounded education. Some portions of the boy’s daily program interest us. He arose at four o’clock in the morning and teacher and pupil began work by “observing the sky. noting if it were of the same aspect as on the preceding night.” Again in the afternoon they went into the fields studying plants, trees, and flowers. At bed time, to close the day of study, pupil and teacher again “searched the heavens, noticing the figuration and aspect of the stars.”
Locke would start the young learner out into the world of nature. He declares that he cannot know things by another man’s eyes.
Milton says. “In those vernal seasons of the year when the air is calm and pleasant, it were an injury and sullenness against nature not to go out and see her riches, and partake in her rejoicing with heaven and earth.”
The creation of Emile by Rousseau came out of the vitalizing heart of Nature, and has carried its message forcefully to two continents. As a boy, Rousseau rioted passionately in the beautiful Swiss country life near Geneva. At the age of sixteen he became a tramp because of his love of rural simplicity. So came he to be the modern inventor of the love of nature, the inspiration of nature poets of all lands, the exemplifier of that language which is the expression of first hand impressions. Such language carries with it a force which no style formed by reading or study can ever have.
Emile knew no book till he was twelve years of age. except the pages of nature. “I hate books,” Rouuseau cries, “they only teach people to talk about what they do not understand.” lie says again, “Emile will never dissect insects: he will not have counted the spots on the sun; he will know neither microscope nor telescope. Hcfore using these instruments. I mean that he shall invent them.” When Emile must have a book there is one incomparable in Rousseau's mind.- -a book for which all his training in the natural sciences serve as a commentary,—Robinson Crusoe. The resulting character of a boy so trained is open, intelligent and teachable—according to Rousseau.
Pestalozzi would incorporate the outer world of nature with the inner world of the
mind. The child must be permitted t«» enjoy the life of earth and nature with all its wealth
of form. An important part of Kroebel's school was “to go out to note with joy the things we do not know about.” He would educate men “whose feet shall stand on God's earth,
rooted fast in nature, while their heads tower up to heaven and read its secrets with steady
The recent prophet of Nature Study. Dr. C. F. llodge, says that during the first three years of its life the little child goes by leaps and bounds into the knowledge and understanding of things about him. The little child comes to the teacher with a thousand pictures in his eyes. The teacher asks him to forget all these things and learn by the symbolic method. To quote from Lowell, “the shades of the prison house begin to close around
IIShim.” Give the pupil large problems ami give them to him early, says Dr. Stanley Hall. Nature is large and there is room there for the child mind to develop large thoughts. “Every child.” says Dr. Hall. “ should dwell in the country for the first eight years of its life.” The unconscious influence of the sounds of Xaturejier grandeur and beauty,unity and rhythm, provoke awe and .winder and rhythmic life in the child. The school has the pleasant privilege of aiding this harmonious development. Let il continue the nature worship of wide eyed infancy.
Prof. Bailey says. “Teach the child the sky in rain, the sky in sunshine, the bird on its nest, tin nest on the bough, the rough hark of the trees, the frost on the twigs, the smell of the ground, tin sweet wind, the falling leaf, the ever changing weather.”
The course of study as a whole should he firmly grounded in the things of nature, the teacher able and willing to make use of nature constantly in forming character. Ideally, the school should be located in the midst of nature.
If the teacher is sensitive to all living things, the child will grow in knowledge and sympathy for all living things. There will be in addition an internal development of faculties in the child as shown by his unanswerable questions.
Briefly told, the results to follow the teacher's sympathetic persistent work are pupils that love beauty, appreciate nature, respect life, with habits of value that shall develop into admirable characters. May our homely efforts to read truly the lessons from nature he expressed by the lines of Prof. L. If. Bailey‘s poem:
“I teach The plants that grow.
The winds that blow.
The streams that run In rain and sun
Throughout the year.
And then 1 lead Thro’ wood and mead Thro mould and sod Out unto God.
"With love and cheer tux I teach!”
— K. A. Hnthorel).
One who essays to write the history of any institution must docido arbitrarily where ho will make a beginning; for wherever this may be there is always something that happened just before which really belongs to the story. So all history goes back to Adam. However, as this is not a history of the Stevens Point Normal School, but merely a sketch describing some of its activities, no one can criticise its scope on the ground of incompleteness. Probably those who first attended and taught in this school have the noise of saw, plane, and hammer mingling with their memories of those earliest days; for the great railroad strike of 1891 had delayed the transportation of materials, and it was mid-September before the session could open. Thus our beginnings were dignified (if not promoted) by association with events of national importance.
The new Normal besides carrying forward the work of education in the time-honored fundamentals, was at once scon to stand for now things. Music, drawing, and athletics had not been elevated to the position of required work in the region where the school was located, or at least not in the rural sections. And while the subject last mentioned was immediately welcomed as a pleasing addition to the routino of school life, the two former subjects were “bitter pills” to many a strapping lad and experienced “lady teacher” who came to the Normal. How little one hears in these days of the objections then urged against these “useless subjects.”
The school was not long in displaying its indiviualitv—a certain strenuousness that surprised some of the pedagogues who looked on from the outside; an atmosphere of freedom from the old fashioned “discipline” of the country school; and a refreshing spirit of friendliness and informality between teachers and students.
Wo shall certainly do injustice to the regular work of the school if we dwell upon the rise of its voluntary activities. The latter could hardly have risen naturally and flourished in a healthy state unless the former had absorbed the larger share of the school’s energies and unless it had proceeded in an orderly, substantial manner. It was the policy of the school to let those activities grow naturally, in response to demand, rather than to force them into existence. The first literary society among Normal students was the Arena, composed of members of both sexes. Mr. Sylvester had already organized a literary and athletic society for boys of the grades. Then the young men seceded from their sisters and formed the Forum; later, the Athenaeum came into existence, and a band of young red-skins formed the Ohivesa. Knrly there came about the Oratorical Association and its annual contests, Mr. Andrew Larkin being tho first winner in 1897. Public debating began in 1895 and soon th« school was meeting annually on the platform the Oshkosh Juniors and Whitewater teams, besides maintaining a series of debates between the two men’s literary societies.
The lecture course began in 1897, Mr. Livingston furnishing the necessary inspiration. It was a success from the first and in its third season we were obliged to move from the Normal Assembly Room to the Opera House in order to accomodate the patrons.
Football early sprang into great favor. “There were giants in those days”—Beck, Gardner, Blen-cole, Carlson, Manz. Pulley, Schofield, Shiinek, and many others too numerous to mention. The whole Normal School world of Wisconsin was soon astonished at the way in which this young upstart school was winning games. Field day in those first years was a great institution, and the work done was remarkable. Examine the records that hang in the hall and see for yourself how mnuy of them dating back to 1895 and lS9fl are still waiting patiently to be broken. Tennis got a start the very first year of the school, under Mr. Culver’s paternal guidance, and after a liberal application of clay to the courts. Basketball, with its outside contests, is a sport of more recent development.
The “Normal Pointer” made its initial appearance in December, 1895, and since then it has maintained a very creditable standard. Its character as a purely student publication has always been a prominent feature" of the “Pointer.” Within recent years an “annual” bearing various names has been issued at Commencement time. The “Iris” is the most recent of thse interesting souvenir publications.
The Normal building was one of the first, a newer type that now has representatives among the school houses in many cities. But u dozen years ago such buildings were scarco and ours received such constant praise that the complimentary remarks of visitors came to seem next to humorous. It was not so funny, however, when the increasing number of students began to tnx its capacity; then Peter Kelley and his family were driven out of the janitor’s quarters and Mr. Swift with his psychology and theory occupied their place. Then practice classes might have been seen roosting on stairways and in halls.
120Finally, the “now wing” was built and finished. The old crumped office was given up for more dignified quarters. The library, constantly expanding, was given more room in which to grow. No. 215, with its crowd of youngsters aspiring to become real Normalites became an established institution.
Hut changes in the building were as nothing compared with changes in the faculty. In 1905, when the school had completed ten years of its history, it was determined that there had belonged to its faculty more than sixty Individuals, and that number has now become fully seventy-five. In the institute conductorship. Mr. Sylvester was followed by Mr. Livingston and he by the proseut incumbent, Mr. Hyer. The drawing department has seen a succession of artistic enthusiasts—Misses Tanner. Morse, Keillor. and Gradv. Music has had an equal number of votaries—Miss Linton. Mrs. Clement, Miss Fink, and Mrs. Bridge. The gymnasium has been in charge of numerous successful teachers—Misses Crawford, Garish, Allerton. and Jackman. In geography, the good beginning made by Mrs. Eliot was continued under Miss DeReimcr (who, departing, left behind a blessed memory) and Mr. Olson. Of Latin teachers, the list is not long- Miss Hitman, Miss Stewart, Miss Pray (so lately and so bravely meeting the grim reaper), and Miss Gilfillan. Other lines of descent and succession might be traced did space permit, not the least among the helpful and faithful workers in the school being the President’s clerks. Miss Patterson. Mrs. Mayers, Mrs. Hay-nor, sind Miss Thompson. The school has been fortunate in the character of its janitor-engineers. Mr. Kelley was followed (after the brief service of Mr. Hunter) by Mr. Wilcox; and the history of the school could not be written without a word of praise for the ever faithful, ever cheerful and helpful Albert"; may lie never have a successor!
New departments have been added from time to time. The student of today may be surprised to learn that in its first years the school had no separate departments of Literature, Psychology, Biology, German, or Geography, ami no librarian. The Kindergarten was established in 1902 and the Domestic ■Science department at the same time.
And then came the day when the ship changed captains. Regrets for the departure of President T. B. Pray, whose enthusiastic, high-minded, and devoted leadership had guided the school through twelve fleeting years, were soon followed by greetings to the new captain, President «T. P. Sims. Need we say that in this transition the vessel kept a steady course, never lacking the firm grasp of a real commander? The beginnings, so faintly outlined in the preceding paragraphs, were oil under the eye and full of the spirit of the obi President; the future, with all its hopes, endeavors, and accomplishments (now so well assured) was in the hands of the new. The school ha but one object, one mission—service to the State; and so long as the State’s children seek its doors, may it be guided by such firm hands and wise counsels as those of the old and the new Presidents.
No one realizes better than docs the writer of this sketch that his account of the Stevens Point Normal deals merely with the surface of things; the real life of the school, of which we have reviewed sonic of the outward manifestations, flowed in a deep, still current thru the lives of its faculty nod students That life is too subtle for description, it evades analysis, it is too complex for any one mind to grasp. Each individual concerned in it knows his share anil feels to this day its influence. The anatomy of a school and its outward activities we can describe. The life of a school—that which builds character and leaves a permanent impression—can only be known when the voting are grown old and see for themselves their successes ami failures, and trace them back to the school days at the Stevens Point Normal.

A gale on the open sea,
The long waves dashing high,
A bold boat, and a merry crew.
And a clear and laughing sky!
C O V
The glitter and glint of the sunrays,
Broken and drenched in foam!
A pearl-white sail, and piping song,
As we spin thru the spray for home!
We lurch and lean, and we slice the wind;
We slide on the sparkling green ;
With splash and creak, and long full bound We ride the waves between.
Our hearts are gay; no fate we fear.
Our life is a joyous thing.
Our laugh is deep, and our love is keen For the song we shout and sing.
For we have a gale on the open sea,
The long waves dashing high;
A hold boat, Mid a merry crew,
And a clean and laughing sky.

A VISIT TO GIBRALTAR
It whs probably due to the many well-wishes of 0«r friends for a good voyage that we had a calm
sea all the way from New York to our destination. Altho the weather was all that could he wished for
and much hotter than is ordinarily to be expected, there was nothing that was so welcome to the passengers of our good ship “Hamburg ' as the sight of land. We had eight days of sea and sky before we came to St. Michaels, of the Azores, which wo passed on the north side about a mile and a half from the shore. It took two days more to reach Gibraltar, universally known as the strongest fortress in the world and far-famed for its romantic scenery and historic associations.
About eleven o’clock on our tenth day out, the African coast came to view on the southeast in the form of dark mountains outlined against the sky in the distance. Soon the const of Spain appeared in the northeast. It is rough with steep, yellow and sandy inclines to the sea. First to appear among the towns were TenerifTo and far-famed Trafalgar cosily nestled between the sea and the barren hills in the north. The great Rock of Gibraltar became visible immediately before us long before wo were really near it. The sailors and the passengers who were there before, assured us that we were unusually fortunate in a remarkably clear sky, for as a rule the coast on both sides is obscured by fogs. As we came closer, to our right but still far away. Ceuta, opposite the great rock, raised its lofty head
above the clouds. Thus appeared the geographical limits of the ancient world known to the Greeks as
the end of the continent and named by them the Pillars of Hercules.
It was about two o’clock when our good ship steamed slowly into the harbor. Before us and the high rock lay a city of many thousand inhabitants. Soon a tender appeared moving towards us from the shore to take to land all of our passengers who wished to go ashore for a few hours. Before us lay two great English battleships and coal barges, aud we were now near enough to see, tho indistinctly. some of the guns of the fortifications. It was interesting to sec and hear that one of those batteries was engaged in target practice in the bay on the south. A small hulk moved eastward tugged
by a smaller steamer. This was fired at again and again from some point on the shore. First thero
was a splash in tho water and soon afterward the report of a gun. This practice was kept up for about twenty minutes of the time preparations were made to land. However, all the shots missed the mark, being invariably aimed too high. All the while our ships had played spirited strains of music. After ofiteiul preliminaries, we found a way open to the tender and we were soon landed at the pier of the city.
Here we were literally enveloped with eager crowds who made a great hubbub. There were cabmen, venders of oranges, figs, dates and strawberries, temptingly displayed in flat, incapacious baskets; curio peddlers, dealers in old coins, old men selling flowers, young men with table cloths and pieces of drawn work for sale, which they skilfully displayed in the middle of the street. All mingled their voices in Spanish, French, broken English and what not.
As we went up to the city followed by this army of hawkers, the narrow streets presented a lively scene. When we entered the gates in the great wall of the eitv, we were approached by dignified officers in military uniforms who inquired of each of us whether we had on our person any tobacco,
whiskev, or firearms. They accepted our word and let us pass on thru the most interesting streets I ever
beheld. My friend, an intelligent young Greek merchant from New York, told me it reminded him of✓
Cairo ami Consantinoplc. The greater number of peiple inet with were evidently Spanish, some were» English, and some were Moors distinguished from all others by their swarthy skin. Quite a number of these wore the Mohammedan garb, familiar in pictures of oriental life, with turbaned head gear and sandal-like shoes.
In the few short hours a considerable portion of the city was explored. The shops were visited cr.d souvenirs were purchased. Snap shots were taken of characteristic scenes. The time to return to tho boat came all too soon. The hawkers were there agiin at the embarking of the passengers, crying their wares until the last moment. We reached our ship about six o’clock and soon were on our way thru the Straits. There lay the great rock, which no photograph I have ever seen justly represents, giving unmistakable evidence of the triumphant military prowess of Great Britain in seizing and holding against the alien nations of the Mediterranean this key to the naval supremacy of Southern Europe.
As our ship sailed away from the rock, fortified, with 19i 7 threatening guns, one being added each year, the scene become more impressive than at any time before. I took a position at the extreme rear
of the deck. The guns were now clearly seen against the background of the sky, mounted on the high-
est pinnacles and pointing in all the different directions of approach. The rock was the center of the scene. To sun was now sinking behind it, enveloping it with a ruddy glow and shading off on the left darker and darker to the dark Ceuta on the African coast opposite, brighter for a considerable distance to the right on the lower Spanish coast, the line of hills, further on, however, in the same direction becoming enveloped in a mist, except a high peak, which lifted its head boldly above the mist around
on the Southern Spanish coast. Between me ami the dark rock looming in the west was a sea, calm,
and smooth as a mirror, exhibiting an indescribable variety of color from a flaming red near the north side of the rock to amber and pale green toward our boat. On the flowing sea in the background floated a dark hulk toward the northern harbor.
Now the light tades more and more. Ceuta first disappears in the darkness. Next the Spanish coast passes from sight. The rock is still there but after a time that too becomes dim and fades away and we continue our course eastward into the Mediterranean and the darkness.

The work given is representative of the daily work of the Model School, it having been prepared by the pupils themselves. The drawing on page 140, and the songs (words and music) on page 143, are products of their industry. The drawing was prepared by an eighth grade pupil, while the words and music of the songs come from the third grade.Lumbering in Wisconsin
In 1890 one-sixth of all the taxable property in Wisconsin was forests. The two great factors that help lumbering are: the unbroken stretches of magnificent forests, which are mostly pines, covering nearly all of the northern half of the state from Michigan to Minnesota : and a most remarkable network of rivers, lakes and streams, which have enabled the lumbermen to float the logs from the forests where they were cut, to the cities and towns where they are manufactured.
From 1888 to 189S three billion feet of lumber was manufactured, or about ten thousand feet to an acre: and, therefore, three hundred thousand acres were demanded every year. In those days only the best butt logs were taken. The tops of the trees and those broken down f ccame highly inflammable under the hot summer sun, and fires arose which were uncontrollable and left the country a desolate, burned waste. Where the great pineries once stood are now millions of acres covered with blackened stumps and dead and down timber.
It is thought that not forty percent of the standing timber was saved. The lumbermen were not wholly at fault, for the business conditions and close competition drove them to log as cheaply as possible. The State does not allow any man or any class of men to spoil the forests in this way now. The lumbermen should have been allowed to cut only the mature timber, and burn the brush, so as to prevent forest fires.
In 1904 a Department of State Forestry was formed, and forty thousand acres in Forest, Oneida, and Vilas Counties were set aside as a Forest Reserve. In 1!KX» Senator LaFollette’s Bill was passed giving to the State, for forestry purposes, twenty thousand acres; so we now have over three hundred thousand acres for Forestry Reserve.
The two great objects of Forestry are to protect the forests and to conserve the stream flow. The second of these is the most important: and therefore the main Forest Reserve will be located in or near Oneida, Vilas, and Iron Counties in the heart of the beautiful lake region which also includes the headwaters of the Wisconsin River and two of the most important tributaries of the Chippewa.
Some people think that forests make rainfall; but they do not. Foresters say rivers are improved by forests because they take up the moisture and slowly let it out. Rain and snow are soaked up by the fallen leaves, moss, and humus, until they are saturated: and then the water very slowly sinks through the humus and follows the roots down to underground channels and then reaches the rivers. This is why streams rising in forests have a more even flow than those that rise in a barren field. The snow lasts longer in the forests because it is protected by the trees, and thus it is left to feed the rivers in the dry, hot months. The net work of lakes and rivers make water power good in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is becoming a great manufacturing state largely on account of this waterpower, but the future depends upon an even flow of water which can be secured by the careful protection of the forests.

Long ago, when flowers had souls and a fairy dryad lived in every tree, there was a youth named Rhoecus. One day as he was straying in the woods he saw a tree just tottering to its fall. He propped it up with gentle care.
As he turned to go he heard a soft voice say, “Rhoecus.” Looking back he saw a beautiful dryad. She said, “For that thou hast been so gentle ask what thou wilt and it shall be thine.” Rhoecus cried, “Thy love.” She said, “Meet me here an hour before sunset.” Rhoecus said he would; and when she had gone he sped to the city.
Here he found some comrades playing a game. He joined them, but had sorry luck. Still he played on.
Late in the afternoon a yellow bee flew through the window aud buzzed about his head. He was angry and struck the bee and sent it bruised out of the window.
As it flew away his eye followed it and he beheld the setting sun. Rethought of what he had promised the dryad. He rushed out and started toward the forest.
He ran straight to the oak tree and called again and again. At last a mournful voice answered, “Thou hast sent my yellow messenger bruised away. If you want my love you must love all other things of Nature. So you may not see me again.” Rhoecus was sad ; ami after that all things were sad to him.
GLADYS BLOOD, 4th Grade,
A Spring Greeting
My heart with pleasure fills And dances with the daffodils,
When in the morning I awake,
And see the birds begin to make Their nests of bits of hay and string.
That seems to tell me it is Spring.
Spring! Spring! Spring! They will hurry Forth at the wild bugle sound,
Blossoms and birds, all in a flurry,
Fluttering over the ground.
Heard you not this morn the birdlings sing “Awake, dear child, ?tis spring, ’tis spring!”
SOPHIA PA STERN ACK1, 7th Grade.
The mountains of Germany are well wooded as one can tell by the frequent use of the word “wald’» (German for wood) in the mountain names. The plains and even places, where the soil is poor and sandy, are wooded. In all, about one-fourth of the German Empire is forest land.
The German thriftiness is shown in the way they care for their forests. Instead of recklessly destroying and wasting them, as many of the forests of the United States have been destroyed, the Germans have an excellent system of Forest Culture.
In the first place the government allows only a certain number of trees to Ikj cut in a year. And when one tree is cut, another is planted and cared for, so that there are always some ready to be cut.
This system has done much to preserve the forests of Germany. Partly as a result of the success of Germany, United States is establishing schools for the study of Forest Culture, so that our forests may be better preserved.
