T a meeting ofthe Normal Literary Union, held January 8, 1892, it was voted that a com-
mittee of three be appointed to wait upon the president of the College, to ascertain his
views concerning the advisability of reorganizing into a secret society. That committee
consisted of Messrs. Slawson, Newberry and Patrie. At the following meeting, held January
15, the committee reported the approval of President Milne, and his willingness to aid in mak-
ing the change.
Thereupon, at a meeting held February 5, a committee of live was appointed to draft a
constitution and by-laws. That committee consisted of Messrs. Wliite, Slawson, Newberry,
Streeter and Hunt. The president then appointed as a committee to draft a pledge, Messrs.
Wllite, Hunt and Cook.
Thus, from the society known as the Normal Literary Union, was evolved the new secret
society that chose for its name " Phi Delta Fraternity, Alpha Chapter." This new secret
organization, absorbed into itself the life of not only the Normal Literary Union, but, also that
of the contemporary society, the Independent Order of Normals. "E Pluribus Ummm"
secured the directing motto, and never since that time has been questioned the wisdom of
that guiding thought.
The loss of identity of each of these societies was more than compensated in the renewed
life and increased energy that resulted from their union. From the time when the new consti-
tution was finally adopted, February 12, to the present, nothing has occurred to mar this page
of our history, or to bring censure upon the course pursued by the succession of members.
One of the formalities incident upon the change was the signing of the pledge by each
of the charter members, to the effect that he would put his shoulder to tl1e wheel and be ever
found at his post ready and willing to further the launching of the bark.
fllut after all the preliminary steps had been taken in preparing and adopting the new con-
stitution, by-laws, rules of order and ritual, there yet remained important problems to be solved.
It was only by careful planning and close management that at last the new chapter found itself
possessed of the necessary equipment whereby to do the work of the society and put itself on
a strong footing. '
The name of the society and its motto resulted from frequent councils with Dr. Milne.
Wllell they were finally settled upon, a pin was selected, approved and adopted.
Then arose the all-important question of cap and gown. Once more, through the ready
aid of our president, was it permitted us to put our plans into execution. There could not have
lJCCl1 a prouder moment than when, for the first time, we were all assembled in full regalia, and
imbued with the spirit implied in our society name.
No pains have been spared to make this organization all that is could be. Although the
membership never varied much from a score, it embodied much activity and force. Each one
worked with redoubled energy that success might crown the efforts of all. The general tone
of tl1e society was made higher and higher, and the benefits derived from the intimate associa-
tion in its membership were felt to be more and more desirable.
The general aim throughout has been to maintain a high standard of excellence in its
membership and in its work. A succession of presidents have guided it during the succeeding
college terms, until to-day it stands an important factor in the college lifej
Not a little of its pleasure has been in watching and furnishing in a brotherly way the growth
and development of its sister societies, the oldest of which is the Delta Omegas. In thedays
of the past, when these two were the only societies in the institution, not a little pleasure was
granted to both in an occasional joint meeting or open session, each favoring the other with
brotherly or sisterly consideration. In later years, other societies have sprung up, yet each
one adding to the pleasure and profit of the others. It is well known that healthy compe-
tition is most desirable.
Each succeeding generation of members has desired to further the interests of the society
in some tangible way. and it is not a little to be desired that sometime in the future a special
home may be owned and fitted up for the enjoyment of not only the student members of this
organization, but as a pleasant and open home for past members to rest in when occasion per-
mits them to return to their Alma Mater.

ND so I, an old Delta girl, have been asked to write a short history of the society. If the
subject has aught to do with the value of the account, surely this article cannot be
The records tell us, and has it not also been handed down from one class to another, that
early in the month of October, in the year 1890, a meeting of some of the members of the Eng-
lish and Classical Courses was called to consider the formation of a society. A committee was
appointed to draw up a constitution, which was adopted, with slight changes, on the twenty-
fourth of the same month. This newly-organized body was soon known as the Delta Omega
Society, and the colors chosen were gold and white.
The motive of the society in those days was, as the constitution read, " to promote physi-
cal, social and literary activity," and this, with perhaps little emphasis on the first, has con-
tinued to be the motive of the society down to the present time. That we have always striven
to promote social activity is patent to all. That we have equally striven to promote literary
activity will be seen from the fact that it was' from our society the suggestion of a college
paper came and it was due to the efforts of several of its members that The Echo was suc-
cessful at the first.
News comes to us within the last few years that the " Deltas," residing in the Borough of
Manhattan and the region round about, hold an annual banquet and reunion at the Metro-
politan Hotel, in New York. Here, again, the fire of loyalty to old Delta burns brightly and many
are the stories that are told of the good times of college days. Have we not proved the truth
of the last stanza of our song?
T ' " Mingling with our lighter dreaming,
Deeper thoughts we'll findg
I-leart to heart in friendship ever
T Delta ties will bind."
It has been a custom of the society for several years past to give a midwinter play. This
is the only thing of its kind that has been attempted in college so there is always the spice of
novelty added. Of course it would never do to praise one's own productions, so here is a
newspaper clipping in its stead: " The play was a delightful one and showed careful preparation."
Thro' many changes, " Delta " has come to be the society she now is. She has done no
great things, neither has she attempted any. W'e have but endeavored to combine society
with work and with what success we will allow others to say.
So here's to thee, old Delta Omega, and may you live long and prosper.

H Sketch of Eta Phi Sorority
553' OR the past few weeks, if one had been a
careful observer, he would have noticed an
unusual degree of animation among a few
of the college students. Furtive glances, full of
suppressed meaning and subdued whispers con:
taining the words 'meeting,' ' Madison ave-
nue,' ' degree,' ' constitutionf ' pin,' betrayed
the enthusiasni of these young ladies in behalf
of something or someone. lt it Later the
mystery was solved. A secret society of women
of the State Normal College had been organized
and was to make its debut at a tea given on the
spcdczl day of this year. February 2Q."
VVith these words, The Echo of February, '96,
announced to the College the formation of a new
society, the organization of which had, up to
that time, been known only to the fourteen girls
who were its charter members. The cause and
history of its organization may be quickly told.
VVhen the writer of this sketch entered the
New York State Normal College, in September,
l95, but one society for women existed in the
College-the Delta Omega. This society was
doing good work in promoting friendship among
its own members, but naturally its influence was
limited to a few, while a large and constantly
growing number of students in the College was
left outside this charmed circle. There was
little or no social life for the student body as a
whole, few pleasant acquaintanceS were made.
except in the classes, and few warm bonds of
friendship forged in this strictly professional
On January 24, 1896, the model chapel was
thrown open to visitors that they might inspect
the wo1'k of the department for the midwinter
term. VVhile the guests were examining the
work a small group of students might have been
observed in earnest, animated conversation. The
topic under discussion was this lack of a social
and college spirit,and what could be done to alter
this. The remedy suggested was that a new
society bc formed-and, then and there, Eta l'hi
came into existence. The plan found other sup-
porters on that very day, and when the consent
of the president of the college, Dr. Milne, was
sought, the proposition met not only with his
approval but received hearty encouragement and
valuable suggestions from him.
Between that day and February 21, the com-
plete organization of the society was accom-
plished. The first meeting for a discussion of
the project was called on February 7, by Miss
lftta Snyder, at 474 Madison avenue. At that
meeting, there were present Arrietta Snyder,
Marguerite Mann, Lilian Moser, Ada Dunne,
Helen Pratt, Laura Stafford, Mary Cook, liva
Pratt, Nan Dc VVitt, Mrs. Franc Sproul and julia
Ast-all but three fCatherine Gomph, Marie
VValradt and Margaret Huntj of the charter
When the purpose of the meeting was an-
nounced, there was a unanimous vote for a per-
manent organization. Committees were ap-
pointed to draw up a constitution and to
formulate a ritual. It was also resolved to invite
Miss Russell, Miss Bishop and Dr. Hannahs to
become honorary charter members, which invi-
tations, to the delight of the society, were
accepted. At the following meetings, February
I4 and 21, all members, both active and honor-
ary, being present, the constitution was adopted,
the name of the society determined and the first
officers elected. The final organization took
place at 474 Madison avenue, on February 2l,
with the following as officers: President, Arrietta
Snyderg vice-president, Lilian Moserg secretary,
Marguerite Mann, treasurer, Laura Staffordg
chaplain, Mary Cookg marshal, julia Ast, and
on February 29 the society announced its exist-
ence at a tea given in the kindergarten rooms.
Such very brieiiy is the history of the formation
of Eta Phi.
The society has at present three honorary,
forty alumnae and twenty-five active members.
Since its organization it has always kept promi-
nent its purpose to create strong bonds of
friendship between its members and to arouse
and strengthen the love for our College. It seeks
to provide recreation from the college work, but
its meetings are not wholly devoted to social
pleasures. At every meeting a literary program
is also carried out.
That the society has fulfilled its mission in the
past is proven by the strong interest and attach-
ment that its alumnae show for it and towards
each other. That it may in the future continue
to carry out the purposes for which it was organ-
ized, and to progress to higher degrees of use-
fulness, is a wish near to the hearts of all who
wear its pin.

9011 one, whose privilege it has been to be
a member of the Kappa Delta Society,
to begin to write a history which shall
embody the trials and triumphs of its early days,
and the many praiseworthy events which have
occurred from time to time, it is no easy task to
tell what the end would be, but a restraining
voice bids timely warning and whispers, " Let
not words but actions tell."
Fortunately it is no difficult matter to fix the
time of its beginning. XVC need not search the
records of ancient time, nor peer among the
remnants of the Dark Ages for mention of its
existence, for in the fullness of time, June 16,
1897, an inspiration was granted to certain gifted
young ladies of the Normal College that there
was both room and need for yet another college
society. These were the founders of the present
existing society, whose charter membership
numbered fourteen. By these members the con-
stitution was framed, the organization, heartily
approved and supported by the faculty of the
College, was thus perfected and Kappa Delta
first made her bow to society November 6, 1897.
The principles upon which the society was
founded are expressed in its motto: " To the
best of onc's ability." The end to be attained
was to afford a means of enlarging and enhanc-
ing what was noblest and best in its membersg
it was formed for social and literary purposes,
so that by occasional draughts from these social
fountains, daily duties would cease to be a
routine and work would become more of a
recreation to its members and college life be
broadened, deepened and enriched.
Kappa Delta's growth, during the past three
years, as indicated by its enrollment, shows a
membership of fifty-five. It has had the pleasure
of placing thenames of Miss Bodley,Miss Pierce,
Miss Sewell and Miss Isdell on the honorary list.
The policy of extension has ever been conserva-
tive in order that the number of members might
not be too large to promote the cultivation of
close friendship among its members, yet it has
not confined its influence to its members alone,
for at least three times each year has Kappa
Delta entertained, as guests, members of the Col-
lege and of the other college societies. These
events have been enjoyed alike by entertained
Below, and named in their order of election,
are those who have held the office of president,
from the organization of the society to the pres-
ent date: Edith H. Nichols, Margery B. Lough-
ran, Katherine V. D. Merwin, Mabel A. Powell,
Jessie A. Dorrance.
There has been shown from the beginning a
quiet, steady and persistent interest in the con-
duct and welfare of this society by its members,
whose efforts have been attended with merited
success. Well may she feel proud of her attain-
ments and cherish alike her trials and triumphs of
the past as no unimportant elements in the devel-
opment which have secured success. So, in leav-
ing thc career of Kappa Delta, its past is secureg
its memories are a pride and an honor, and
may it ever strive to inculcate into the hearts
of its new initiates noble ambitions and right

Psi Gamma Society
N the early part of the year 1898, the society
of Psi Gamma was organized. The first
preliminary meeting was held on February
the fifteenth. Then were enrolled the names of
nine young ladies, and a committee was ap-
pointed to draft the constitution and by-laws.
The second preliminary meeting quickly followed
when the name Psi Gamma was chosen, and
everyone, being enthused with high ideals and
lofty aims, went forth to the new work, taking
the society name as their motto.
The growth and success of the society has
been marked. From its origin to the present
time, there has been a steady advancement, step
by step it has been, but the steps have grown
firmer, as each obstacle has been overcome. The
society has grown in numbers, grown in ability
and grown in confidence, and is now recognized
as an important factor of our college life.

5HE Sigma Theta Fraternity, in its founda-
tion, was the direct outcome of the am-
bitious and progressive spirit which has
characterized the Class of 1900. VVhen, in Sep-
tember, 1899, the class was augmented by many
men from literary colleges where monopoly is
unknown, but where competition is the very life
of the undergraduate body, a prompt and cor-
dial response was made to the suggestion that
a second fraternity be founded. lt was to pro-
mote higher aspirations, to make better use of
opportunities, and to incnlcate more into the
State Normal College, present-day university
ideas of literary and intellectual competition.
that eight men, realizing that a healthy rivalry
is the greatest stimulus to growth and improve-
ment, met on October 3, 1899, and organized
the Sigma Theta Fraternity.
Once formed, it began its existence with an
enthusiasm and strength, which steadily attracted
members to it, until they now number twenty-
one, of whom eleven hold literary degrees, and
these characteristics of strength and earnestness
have, in the few months since its foundation, so
increased that tl1e society has become an estab-
lished and respected factor in the college life,
and its infiuence is considered worthy to be
The aim of the society may be said to be the
mutual benefit of its members, through a close
association and brotherly intercourse in debate,
in literary exercises, and in social pleasures. It
seeks to represent no particular element or fac-
tion, to stand for no special policy, but always
to exert an infiuence in the direction of truth
and seriousness, and to embody in its member-
ship the strongest and soberest thought of the

History of the Class of l900
HE Class of IQOO entered the State Normal
College fully Ioo strong. Though her
ranks have been thinned-some leaving
on account of ill-health, some for other causes -
the places have been filled by recruits from
y99, and by collegiates. So to-day 1900 is as
powerful as on that day when each and all
Signed the pledge under Dr. H--'s gentle
W'hen " the little lady in black," from the
reception room just off the marble hall, assigned
each freshman to his or her abiding place on
Elm, Madison or Lark, she little knew the
glory and renown which the new class would
bring to the college and to the profession.
Soon after our, arrival, we were tendered a
reception, in Normal College Hall, by the Class
of '99, and we recall how bravely each member
of that ever-friendly class contributed his or her
mite in Miss B--'s little bank on the office
'l'hroughout the year there has been constant
exchange of courtesy between classes and among
societies, and, as the number of societies has
increased, college life has become brighter. So
we say, "Success to the societies."
Ilut it remained for 1900 to inaugurate the
custom of giving a farewell reception to tl1e grad-
uating class in june, adding one more to the
joyous affairs of commencement ti1ne. The
" naughty n0ughts" have always been well
known for their social tendencies, and CVC11 ilf
class meetings the young men have been accus-
tomed to practice the steps learned a night or
two before at G---'s or C-ls.
Do the class
at eleven? Oh, yes. The office clock is a little
fast, you know. fl'erhaps it was a little later
meetings always end promptly
on that evening of the election of officers when
loo present. ,llut then it took
a little longer time for each one to pick out the
there were over
best pair of rubbers.
For years our monthly publication, The Echo,
has carried the college news to the alumni and
spread abroad the name and fame of the State
Normal College. llut 1900 again displayed her
ambition and the spirit of progression in sug-
gesting and carrying out plans for a college
publication which will class with the Scarlet
Letter, the Vassarian, or any other college an-
nual. lloldly she has undertaken the work and
success attends her efforts here as everywhere
During this last year of the nineteenth century,
everyone has seemed full of life and energy, and
1900 has aided in the organization of several fra-
ternities and clubs: Sigma Theta, the Camera
Club, the Tennis Club, the Shakespeare Club, the
Westchester County Club. All these have grown
and prospered and we can foresee years of life
and social activity at our Alma Mater.
As the year draws to a close and our college
course is almost ended, we can look back calmly
over our successes and our failures. Undoubt-
edly IQOO will sustain her reputation in the years
to come and the State Normal College may
expect to see in the graduates of to-day the
strong educational leaders of the future.
A fitting close to our years here will be reunion
in June, when faculty, alumni and' undergrad-
uate will join in celebrating the unveiling of the
tablet to be erected to the memory of the brave
men who went out from the normal schools to
uphold the Union Hag.
A note of sadness mingles with the joy but
in the future reunions we will see the pleasure
even in the parting.

Historv of the Class of I90I
QHERE was published some years ago in a
newspaper colunm, where spicy things
found their place, an article concerning
college graduating classes. lt was an article
denouncing the fashion of naming classes in the
abbreviated way so common-Class of ,Q5, for
example- and poking all manner of fun at the
unfortunate persons whose appellation should be
" Class of 'o1'." The only possible way of giving
oral expression to this name would be, so the
writer claimed, as "The Class of Naughty
It is curious to consider how things come to
pass. Doubtless many a member of the present
State Normal College Class of 1901 read that
little quib with a smile and passing comment,
never dreaming he should come to be one of
those Naughty Ones. llut here we are, and
we should like to take this opportunity of answer-
ing that bright jester.
lNhen an ambiguity presents itself, each per-
son puzzled thereby is justified in adopting the
interpretation which to him seems most reason-
able. XVC shall not, therefore, be hard on the
jcster whose views are not our views, but calmly
in return present our way of reading '01.
The hgure mu' stands for this class, A No. 1.
A cipher means nothing, and here stands for
all that have gone before us. The apostrophe
signihes something left out: that is, ourselves
left out of the past history of the college. Con-
clusion: W'e are the people.
But, seriously, we have many reasons for re-
joicing that ours is a class of 1901. To graduate
in 1901 means to have entered in 1899. It 'means
to have beheld from college halls the close of the
nineteenth century and to have hailed with col-
lege-born ambitions the opening of the twen-
tieth. lt means to have had tl1e critical period
of our careers coincident with the turning of the
centuries. It means to have deep thoughts sug-
gested to us and to have born in us the hope that
as a class we may be a pivot upon which great
events shall turn, as the centuries wheel round
ns. It means to have aroused in us the ambition
and the endeavor to be a worthy forerunner of
the ninety and nine classes to follow in the
century to come.
At the time of making this record our history
is short- short in the mnnber of weeks we have
been together, not short nor meagre, however, if
measured by experiences, by growth, by enjoy-
ment, by friendships made and ties formed.
For numbers our class quite broke the record
of many a year, we being 200 strong. lt was
diflicult at first to feel at home among so many
strangers. An observer in chapel exercises those
early September mornings could see many a one
reading a home letter in place of the hymn, and
weeping instead of singing. lint where is the
college where no tears have been shed on the
opening days? Like discords in music, they
serve to emphasize the harmony which follows.
Our class was formally organized early in the
fall. VVith our daily classes, where wel met in
work and our monthly class meetings, where we
met in play, we soon came to know each other.
By the way, a normal college, as we soon
learned, is an excellent place for becoming
acquainted, in a way. Sooner or later each one
of us has had to appear for scrutiny before his
classmates, who, with daily increasing keenness,
observe his voice and manner, his attitude before
the class, the extent of his knowledge, the char-
acter of his preparation, his method of manag-
ing a difficult subject. If there is anything each
of us does not know about the rest of us, it is
not because of lack of opportunity.
VVe have been gaining power in many unex-
pected directions. While it is one aim of our
training to make us beyond criticism in the 'art
of teaching, it is another aim, we have found,
to make' us adepts in the art of fault-finding.
But we have received a training in greatness of
heart which offsets this questionable art. It is
not exactly if smitten on the one cheek to turn
the other also, but if punched once to be very
meek and quiet about it, and, if punched twice, to
rejoice at our persecution.
Our class meetings have been a source of
pleasure and pront. VVe think we showed our
good sense in the selection of our first president,
who so vigorously, surely, and well guided our
bark through the perils of a beginning voyage.
It shall be our endeavor to continue with
Ernst efforts to ply our Orr, nor ever linger
in the coolness of the Reeds along the shore. We
know that many a Glenn and Parke and fragrant
Rose will tempt us on our way to tarry in idle
sweet repose. But stay not, Ladds and lasses,
the Wolfe in sheepis Hyde lurks. lfVe mean to
spare no I'ay1zcs till heights like ET.'Cl'CSf,S are
gained. With such a band as ours, what cannot
be accomplished? VVe have Smiths galore to
keep in order the ships and Carrs in which we
travel over land and sea. We have a Baker for
our physical needs, a Bishop for our souls, and
a King to rule over us. To give us fame,' great
men are of our bancl-Br0'w1zz'ng, Lamb and
Burns. What need we Moore? To put it mod-
estly, we think we're Goodcizouglz.
On VVashington's birthday, we gave our first
reception and entertainment. With what a thrill
of pride and pleasure shall we always look back
upon that night! Our friends were received by
ladies in the quaint garb of olden days, and enter-
tained by seeing in pantomime the romance of
Miles Standish, John Alden and Priscilla. So
well did the actors take their parts, so perfectly
did they look the characters they assumed, one
almost thought for the time being he was living
in the village of Plymouth three hundred years
For our motto we have chosen the suggestive
words, " Do ye nexte thynge." Our colors are
royal purple and white, significant of the loyalty
and purity of heart needed in order to do " ye
nexte thyngel' well. Our flower is the violet, and
we like to dreamof the profusion of violets purple
and white that will bloom for us in June, IQOI.
If the first quarter of our career as the Class
of 1901 can be taken as a prophecy of the rest-
and it can fail only in not telling enough
-- surely " the lines have fallen unto us in
STATE NORMAL COLLEGE
il Sketch of the History of the new York State liormal College
miss mary 11. melilelland
?'RO1Xfl llnrope the normal school system
reached America. It came directly from
Prussia to tl1e Lfnited States, through the
efforts of the Rev. Charles llrooks of Massa-
chusetts. In 1839 Massachusetts founded at
Lexington her first normal sel1ool. A few years
later New York established her first at Albany.
New York did not act hastily in this matter.
The founding of a normal school had been advo-
cated by State Zllltl by county superintendents,
it had been recommended by successive gov-
ernors in their annual messages: it had been
brought to the homes of the people by the Dis-
trict School ilonrnal. Horace Mann and lrlenry
liarnard had spoken for it. Finally, it reached
the Legislature in the form of a bill, presented
1843 by Calvin T. Hulburd of St. Lawrence
county. This bill was successfully carried
through by his efforts and those of Michael Hoff-
mann of lflerkimer county.
The school was to be an experiment for five
years. For its support during' that time the sum
of 5510.000 was to be paid annually from the
literature fund. The supervision and govern-
ment of tl1e school were to be conducted by tl1e
superintendent of common schools and the Re-
gcnts of the University. The following executive
committee was at o11ce appointed: Col. Samuel
Young, Rev. Alonzo Potter, Hou. Gideon
Hawley, Francis Dwight, and Rev. XVIII. H.
Soon tl1e committee was organized and tl1C
work distributed among its Il1Cl1llJCl'S. Gideon
Hawley secured from the city of Albany the lease
of a building, together with 55500, to help put tl1e
property in order. Francis Dwight visited the
school at Lexington, to learn of its organization
and equipment. Dr. Potter went to Massachu-
setts, empowered to engage a principal.
No time was lost. The building was repaired
and equipped, a principal was secured, and some
teachers were appointed. All was ready by
December 18, 1844. On that date the school
was formally opened by an address by Col.
Young before the executive committee, the fac-
ulty, and the twenty-nine students who had
assembled the first day. What is now Van
Veehten Hall, on State street, east of Eagle, was
the Hrst home of tl1e normal school. It was
agreed that tuition and text-books should be
free, and that a small sum of money to help pay
board bills should be furnished weekly to each
lt was a humble beginning: a rude building,
inexpensive apparatus, few students. It was all
very plain and common-all but tl1e peopleg
the principal, the teachers, and the young men
and women in the classes. These were more
than ordinary. Something must have been done
for those twenty-nine young people and tl1e
scores that joined them, something to cause them
to go out and do good work in the world, and
to return years after with loyalty in their hearts
and tears in their eyes as they spoke of the old
school and of " tl1e sainted Page."
David Perkins Page, a New Hampshire man,
was the first principal. He was associate prin-
cipal of the Newburyport High School when
Dr. 'Potter went over there to engage him if he
should find him competent. Dr. Potter con-
versed with Mr. Page about half an hour, and
then engaged him.
Pull of knowledge, love, enthusiasm, Principal
Page came to take charge of the New York State
Normal School. That he understood the secret
springs of mind and heart is learned from his
book, " The Theory and Practice of Teaching,"'
and is attested by those whom he taught, and
that he " spared not himself," is shown by his
early death. He died January 1, 1848, before
the time limit of the "experiment" had been
reached. " Death or success " was the watch-
word. He died, but first he achieved success.
George R. Perkins, the brilliant professor of
mathematics since the organization of tlie school,
was the next principal. He secured a new site
and a new building, and conducted the institu-
tion in a business-like manner till his resigna-
tion, July 8, 1852. He then took charge of the
calculations to be made in the process of con-
solidating the various lines of railroad between
Albany and Buffalo. He superintended the
erection of Dudley Observatory. He became
Deputy State Engineer and Surveyor. In Janu-
ary, 1862, he was elected a Regent of the
The new building, for which an appropriation
was made soon after the death of'Mr. Page, was
erected in the rear of Geological Hall. There
on Lodge and Howard streets, it formed the
home of the normal school till june, 1885.
Samuel B. NVoolworth, the successor of Dr.
Perkins in 1852, brought to the normal school
the knowledge and experience gained during
twenty-eight years of teaching. He knew the
value of classification in the organization of a
large school. He insisted upon a thorough divi-
sion of labor, appointing teachers who each
devoted his whole time to a single department.
Through his inliuence, a thorough reorganiza-
tion of the institution was effected by which the
departments were made more distinct, and
teachers of ability and experience were secured
for each department. This man was a potent
factor in the school for twenty-eight years, for
when he resigned, it was to become secretary
of the Board of Regents and so a member of
the executive committee in charge of the school.
Dr. Woolwortli was succeeded by a member
of his faculty, a young man whom he himself
had chosen, and whom he regarded as a model
of manhood, scholarship, and general culture.
David H. Cochrane, A. M., Ph. D., brought
to his new position all that energy, grace, and
infiuence which had characterized his former
work, and which now made his administration
a marked success. He was aided by a strong
faculty-among whom were Professors Jewell,
Cooley, Kimball, and Husted: and Misses Rice,
Ostrom, and Butler.
It was during this administration that the
Civil War was waged. ln response to the Presi-
dent's call in 1862, certain young men of the
school put away their books, shouldered their
muskets, and marched to the front, accompanied
by Professors Kimball and Husted as command-
ing officers. In honor of those who died in the
service, there is to be erected in the college
chapel next June, a memorial tablet, contribu-
tions for which have been made by the alumni
of the institution.
In 1864 Dr. Cochrane resigned his position
to become president of the Polytechnic Institute
of Brooklyn. He was succeeded by Prof. Oliver
Arey, who also resigned after a short term of
office. Kindly and conscientious he was in the
discharge of his duties, and there are those who
remember him with gratitude.
On April 24, 1867, joseph Alden, D. D.,
LL. D., was elected president. He was a life-
long educator and writer on educational subjects.
I-le had been a professor in Williams College
and president of VVashington and Jefferson
College. Dr. Alden felt the importance of thor-
ough scholarship, method being somewhat sub-
ordinated to a comprehensive view of a subject.
He was vigorous, intense, original, sincere, and
many a young man did he infiuence for good.
His resignation i11 1882 closed fifteen years of
On june 22, 1882, Edward P. Waterbury,
Ph. D., LL. D., was elected president. For the
first time in its history, the head of the institution
was one of its own graduates. From this time
on, great changes occur. Ideas crystalize into
definite forms. .
A historical sketch of the school is written,
together with a history of its graduates for forty
years. Later, the work is extended for five
years more. A pamphlet also is prepared, giving
an account of the chief work done by graduates
of the institution. When it is remembered that
in order to accomplish all this, Dr. Waterbury
had to reach between two and three thousand
people, distributed, not in the Americas only,
but across the seas as well, the work is seen to
have been no light task.
Next a new building is secured, the old one
being wholly inadequate. In carrying out tl11S
project, Dr. VVaterbury had the effective help of
the executive committee and of many other
friends well known in political circles. The
Alumni Memorial Window was 111211111061 also at
this time, an appeal being made to the gradl121fCS
in regard to it.
The association of graduates, formed in 1851
by NVilliam lf. Phelps, was reorganized at the
beginning of Dr. VVaterbury's administration by
Sherman Williams, Sumner H. Babcock, and
others. Under the new auspices, a notable
reunion was held December 27, 1883. It was
attended by about 600 of the alumni, many of
wl1on1 had come long distances. Near the close
of the afternoon session, the idea of a memorial
window was presented, and a resolution unani-
mously passed to the effect that 'l the ' window '
should be constructed by the alumni." Com-
mittees were appointed to collect funds, and in
due time the handsome window was an accom-
plished fact. lt was a matter of regret to the
alumni, however, that the work could not be
wholly completed in Dr. Waterbury's day.
The 11ew building was erected on Willett street,
facing Washington Park. Into its walls was
wrought some of the material of the old capitol,
the brown stone slabs being turned and rough-
ened for the purpose. In construction and
equipment, the new building was a great im-
provement upon the old. Departments for
experiments in chemistry and physics, a refer-
ence library and reading-rooms, and a kinder-
garten were among the new features, as was also
the collecting of portraits to adorn the walls
of the college chapel, and to perpetuate the
memory of those who had contributed to the
success of the institution. The building was
constructed and equipped under the personal
supervision of President Waterbury. Toiling
early and late, with no thought for himself and
with much for the school, Dr. Waterbury de-
clined in health. In the summer of 1889 he died.
From a purely educational point of view, the
work of the old normal school was over in 1889.
For forty-five years it had provided teachers for
the schools of this State. It had felt its own
infiuence react upon itself in the better prepara-
tion of those who entered its classes. It l1ad
given added importance and efficiency to teach-
ers' institutes and teachers'itraining classesg it
had seen many schools like itself spring up in
tl1e State and in the country. But education had
progressed wonderfully in forty-five years.
Teaching was looked upon as a profession.
In October, 1889, the executive committee
invited NV111. J. Milne, Ph. D., LL. D., to become
head of the New York State Normal School. In
correspondence with the gentlemen of the com-
mittee, Dr. Milne stated very clearly the condi-
tions upon which he would consent to take
charge of the school. He desired to raise the
standard of admission, extend the course, and
turn the institution into a purely professional
school. The committee immediately accepted
the conditions and placed him in charge. '
The reorganization of the practice departments,
and the addition of a high school, a radical
change in the character of the work done in
the college and in tl1e practice departments, the
advanced standard of admission, together with
the numbers of college and university students
wl1o enter in accordance with that standardg the
increased number of courses, the last provided
being a course for supervisors and commission-
ersg the conferring of degrees-- Pd. lil., regular
courseg Pd. M., supplementary course: Pd. D.,
an honorary title: also a change in the college
life, the founding of Greek-letter fraternities and
athletic clubs, the successful management of a
college paperg the valuable lectures and other
entertainments provided each year, grand organ
recitals given by the director of music: afternoon
seminars conducted by I1l0l11DCl'S of the faculty,
and open to residents of Albany and vicinityg
a change of name, " Normal College," to har-
monize with new conditions-these are some
of the events connected with the administration
of President Milne.
The changes mentioned above necessitated
others in the building itself. To the south of the
college additional property was secured and fitted
up for the primary department, two class-rooms
were constructed out of a hitherto unused portion
of the building: safe and commodious means of
egress from the great assembly hall were pro-
vided, a marble-paved entrance court was con-
structed, tl1e walls of which are frescoed and
hung with rare pictures-the light being soft-
ened and the beauty of tl1e court being greatly
enhanced by two handsome stained-glass
ln 1894 occurred the semi-centennial jubilee.
From all parts of the United States they came -
young graduates of the new college and members
of the first class of the old normal school. As
no one building in the city could afford suitable
accommodations for the banquet, the two largest
hotels were engaged,the Kenmore and the Dela-
van, and, every available spot in each was
occupied. Toasts, songs, wit and good cheer
caused the hours to go with flying feet.
On this occasion the degree of Doctor of
Pedagogy was conferred on the following mem-
bers of the alumni: Miss Emily A. Rice, Miss
Ellen G. Reveley, M rs. Delia Lathrop Williaiiis,
Sherman WllllalllS, A. M., VVm. M. Giffin,
A. M., and Edward L. Pierce, A. M. The same
degree has since been conferred upon James A.
Foshay, A. MI, and Carl Ritter, A. M.
This brief account of the college shows prog-
ress along right lines. And it is -believed and
hoped that certain plans now under considera-
tion will in their development add greatly to
the power and efficiency of New York State's
only Normal College.

HAT "Art is the handmaid of religion " has
been proven many times during the
Christian Era, as well even in our own
scientific nineteenth century as in the period
aptly called, " The Ages of Faith? Those cen-
turies which produced the Gothic cathedrals and
churches of Europe, the religious mediaeval
drama, and the masterpieces of fresco and oil
painting were surely " ages of faith." In each of
these forms of art man sees to-day what man in
times past devoutly believed.
To trace the inspiration of the master archi-
tects who planned and wrought buildings fitted
for the worship of God the Father, God the Son,
and God the Holy Ghost, we have but to go to
the Sagred Scriptures, where, in the description
of the building of Solomonis temple and its orna-
mentation, we find that gold and silver, and
gems and precious stones were used lavishly, as
befitted the house of the Lord. Cathedral archi-
tecture reveals what the founder of Christianity
came upon earth to do - to redeem mankind by
His suffering and death on the cross of Calvary.
The Gospel story of the life, death and resurrec-
tion of our Saviour has been carved in wood
and stone, wrought in mosaic, painted on walls
and domes and inscribed in letters of gold, by
artisan and artist for the purpose of teaching
those who worshiped in the churches of Chris-
tendom the only means whereby man may save
his immortal soul. Writing of St. Mark's in
Venice, Ruskin says, " If one had time to explore
the minor lateral chapels and cupolas, he could
find in them the whole series of New Testament
history, the events of the Life of Christ, and the
apostolic miracles in their order, and finally the
scenery of the Book of Revelation, but if he
entered, as often the common people do at this
hour, snatching a few moments before beginning
the labor of the day, to offer up an ejaculatory
prayer, and advanced but from the main entrance
as far as the altar screen, all the splendor of the
glittering nave and variegated dome, if they
srnote upon his heart, as well they might often, in
strange contrast with his reed cabin among the
shallows of the lagoon, smote upon it only that
they might proclaim the two great messages,
" Christ is risen," and " Christ shall comef' So in
the hearts of the old Venetian people St. Mark's
was far more than a place of worship. Ruskin
goes on to say, " It was at once a type of the
Redeemed Church of God, and a scroll for the
written word of God. It was to be to them both
an image of the bride, all glorious within, her
clothing of wrought gold, and the actual Table
of the Law and the Testimony, written within
and without. And whether honored as the
Church or as the Bible, was it not fitting that
neither the gold nor the crystal should be spared
in the adornment of it, that, as the symbol of the
bride, the building of the wall thereof should be
of jasper, and the foundations of it garnished
with all manner of precious stones?"
What the traveler finds in this beautiful Vene-
tian church he may find in hundreds of other
churches built during the middle ages. Each
one tells the Bible story of Christ's passion, and
its bearing upon human life and destiny.
The mystery and miracle plays of the middle
ages present another form of art inspired by the
Bible. The very titles of these dramas reveal
their origin, their scope and their purpose. Here
is a list of the subjects, forming a cycle of
English "mysteries," which may be taken as a
type of those acted in Italy, France, Spain and
Germany for five hundred years. The Creation,
The Fall of Lucifer, Adam and Eve, Man's Dis-
obedience and Fall, The Sacrifice of Cain and
Abel, The Building of the Ark, Noah and his
Wife and the Flood, Abraham's Sacrifice, The
Departure of the Israelites,The Ten Plagues,and
the Passage of the Red Sea. These are the
favorite events from the Old Testament. Those
subjects based upon the Gospels represent'the
life of our Lord from His Nativity to His Ascen-
sion, and the events of His life, beginning with
His trimnphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm
Sunday, include His betrayal by Judas, His
apprehension by the Roman soldiers, His accusa-
tion before the Sanhedrim, His trial before Pilate,
His condemnation and crucifixion, followed by
His resurrection and ascension. These form the
scenes of the " Passion Play " of the middle
ages which survived' in England until the time of
Elizabeth, in Germany until the eighteenth cen-
tury, and which still survives at Oberammergau.
The famous loggie of the Vatican, painted in
fresco by Raphael, is called "-Raphael's Bible,"
from the fact that he has depicted upon' its ceiling
the same scenes from Bible history and Gospel
story that had been clramatized before his time.
Of the hundreds of canvases painted by his
hand or designed by him how few can be traced
to any other source than the Sacred Scriptures!
Among the most famous works of art in the
city of Florence are the bronze doors of the
Baptistry called the "Ghiberti Gates " from the
artist who designed them. Here we see again the
power of biblical inspiration, for these bronze
doors are open pages of Holy Scripture, pictur-
ing as they do ten scenes from the Old Testa-
ment, and the chief scenes in the life of our
Saviour from His birth to His ascension. No
wonder Michael Angelo said of one of them,
" It is worthy of being the gate of Paradise."
No name in the history of art stands above that
of Michael Angelo, and yet his grandest achieve-
ments are on Bible themes. His genius found
ample scope in expressing his knowledge of Holy
Writ and his reverence for its teachings in the
varied forms of sculpture, painting, and architec-
tural design. On the walls and ceilings of the
Sistine Chapel he has represented the same Bible
scenes that are found in Raphael's frescoes and
on the Ghiberti Gates.
Carlyle says, "A n1an's religion is the chief
fact with regard to him." The religion of these
men was certainly the chief fact with regard to
them. Inspired by it they gave it tangible form.
Their lives were spent in expressing to the world
what had been so deeply impressed upon their
own minds and hearts, and their works have been
an inspiration to those who, looking upon them,
have felt that such representations of the deep
spiritual sense contained in the simple Scripture
story speak more clearly and forcibly than words
have power to do.
The Bible was the one book so familiar to the
people of the middle ages as to be understood
and appreciated by those whom we would call
to-day the most illiterate, for the art which was
inspired by it became the means of translating it
into a language that was understood at sight by
the common people.
In the time of Raphael, Michael Angelo, and in
fact all the other great Italian artists, their
frescoes, statues and paintings adorned the walls
and ceilings of churches, chapels, palaces and
other public buildings, to which all classes of
people had free access, and where they not only
saw these poetical and religious compositions,
but learned from the conversation of competent
judges the meaning and the value of such works
of art. The common people breathed the very
atmosphere of art. The most famous pictures
and statues became as well known to them as
were the faces of their friends. One of our
present recognized methods of teaching is by
using " penny pictures " which are copies of the
works of these old masters. Imagine what must
have been the eFfect upon the generations of
children who have looked upon the originals of
these masterpieces in all their beauty of color,
in their proper setting, and as an every-day
occurrence for the past live hundred years.
In our young republic most of our large cities
have art galleries which are free to the public on
certain days of the week, and on all other days
an admission fee is charged. NVhen an especially
fine collection of pictures is exhibited it is visited
once or twice perhaps by the favored few who
have time at their disposal, and can afford to
pay the required fee. But even under all the
unfavorable conditions which have thus far
hindered our progress in the knowledge and
appreciation of art, we are beginning to value
the sacred and legendary art of our own times
which can be, traced to the same source of
inspiration and to the same religious fervor as
that which moved the old masters in the middle
ages. The Tissot pictures, painted in response
to direct inspiration, and representing, as they
do, the life of our Blessed Lord in its most
minute details, should be the means of awakening
sweet hope and faith in the soul of every
Christian who learns their history. They testify
that Divine revelation is as active in the world
to-day, in spite of the engrossing commercial
and scientific pursuits of men, as it was when
Christian art was busy throughout mediaeval
Italy, translating the Bible into visible form.
A VIEW IN THE PARK
I,ife's Golden Sunset
URN the sun from round the hill
Sends the shadows o'er the lea,
In the trickle of the rill
Comes a pleasant thought to me.
I had wondered long' and oft
If the morning sun was best,
Or when sinking from aloft
To the crimson of the west.
W'hether life is only bright
On this side its zenith-line,
Or a lingering' sparkle might
Reach its nadir of decline.
Youth has fancy. Fancy held
For the time of earliest light.
This maturer age dispelled
For the gathering shades of night.
For the morning can hut say,
Of a labor just begun,
'Tis the dusky close of day,
Brings the Master's kind 'well done!
So the trickle of the rill,
As it hurries to the sea,
When the sun is 'round the hill,
lirings a pleasant thought to me.
-George Browning, 'ol.
" 'Tis said the albatross never rests."
HERE the fatholnless waves in magnifi-
Homeless and high soars the wild
Unwearied, unclaunted, unshrinking, alone,
The ocean, his empire - the tempest, his throne.
Wllen the terrible whirlwind raves wild o'er the
And the hurricane howls out the mariners' dirge,
In thy glory thou spurnest the dark-lieaving sea,
Proud bird of the ocean-world-homeless and
When the winds are at rest, and the sun in his
And the glittering tide sleeps in beauty below,
In the pride of thy power triuinphant above,
XVith thy mate thou art holding thy revels of
Untir'd, unfetter'd, unwatch'd, uneonfin'd,
.Isle my spirit like thee in tl1e world of the
No longing lor earth e'cr to weary its flight,
And fresh as thy pinions in regions of light.
4-H. L. R., 'oo.
T was on the outskirts of a city where a row
of neat cottages made a sharp division line
between the city and the spreading country
land. .ln front were paved streets and crowded
houses, behind, rolling' fields reaching far and
far to dim blue mountains beyond.
It was a day in june, when the earth breathes
forth a faint, ineffable charm, now felt, now
marvelled at-like distant music borne on the
wind, heard and then not heard, and after all half
In spite of such a day, a mother-her spirit
all out of tune with the world, with life and with
mankind - had been cross all day with her little
son. Super-sensitive, heart-broken, he had
crawled away into the shadow of a syringa bush
and there he lay fast asleep in the gentle after-
noon, his waxen eyelids sealed with tear-drops.
lfast in his arms was a great black cat. The
child's rich fancy had endowed the cat with all
the love and sympathy of a human friend. It is
well that children can find real love and pity in
the dumb creatures about them.
" You love me anyway, don't you, kitty?
NVhat makes mamma so cross, do you suppose?
Perhaps she ean't help it. 1 guess she doesn't
like little boys. But you do, pussy dear, duzft
you? " And then tears of heart-lninger and self-
pity burst forth and heavy sobbing wearied him
It sometimes happens that a mother, like this
Little One's mother, bears a child with a spirit
so different from her own that it seems as if he
cannot belong' to her. VVith no training on l1er
part or by others--rather, in spite of her im-
penetrable hardness of heart and open hatred
of love-the Little One had developed a most
beautiful nature-sunny, gentle, tender, his
fancies fed by the Howers that blooined and the
breezes that blew-a very rose in the desert.
One cannot but believe -- one longs anyway
to believe --that there was at least potentially
in that mother as much sweetness and beauty.
,lint somehow she had never attuned the harp
of her life to unison with God and the world.
And now, alas, this child, who was all she might
have been. grew to be a cause of irritation. Since
she could not sympathize with him, she would
not bear with him.
The Little One had once been told by a
stranger a charmed story of a " kind and dear
princess." Vlfhen his heart was breaking for
sympathy and love, his fancy often communed
with the good lf'rincess and drew comfort from
her. She was his fairy god-mother who loved
him clearer each day.
As the Child sleeps beneath the fragrant bush,
a radiant smile lights his face and his clasp 'of
the kitty grows closer. He is dreaming of his
Princess. Her dress is whiteg her eyes are blue
and dreamy, and her glorious hair is long and
golden. Her soft arms are about himg she kisses
the tears away, she tells him that she loves him.
She whispers himtales of the wondrous world,
she tells what the bees and the birds and the
blossoms are saying: she sings him songs, and
through it all she loves him.
The Child awakes from his sleep-at least
his eyes open, but the fascination of his dream
is still upon him. Never remembering home or
mother, he rises to his feet and starts in the
direction in which his opening eyes first looked
-across the fields towards a small dark wood
on a quite distant hillside. He had often gazed
at that dark wood, faneying there his Princess
lived and that he could see the gleam of her
golden l1air as she moved about in her woodland
He toddles through a field of golden-rod. His
golden head cannot be .distinguished among the
golden fiowers. Farther on, the yellow mustard
weed is blooming thickly, low Flowers like golden
stars crowd under foot, yellow-backed bobolinks
are everywhere starting into flight and pouring
forth their rollicking songs. The fields are a
study in gold and yellow, with the golden sun-
shine flooding all. The Child talks with the
birds and tl1e fiowers, and they talk with him,
we know, and those who have been such a child
know what they say. It was not until, with
eyes following a joyous bobolink, he stepped into
a puddle of water in marshy ground and felt the
cold upon his feet, that he thought what he was
doing or remembered his mother. " My feet are
wet! VVhat will mannna say? I-must go home.
- Home! to mother. Home! to a scolding. No,
I am going to see my Princess. Princess!
Princess! I am coming. See! I run. Keep
watch for me." And, again, his real mother
forgotten in the thought of his dream mother,
he hurries on.
At the edge of the wood he peeps curiously
in. O, it is cool and green within! How deep
the shadows! How soft the grass! The tree
trunks form long aisles down which the shade
and sunshine play. A brook babbles by, not
five running steps away. And there- O Child!
O Little One! Yes, he sees it-beyond the
brook, quite far away, a Hash of gold. " My
Princess! my Princess! I know you by your
Uutstreteh thy little arms and run to her, dear
Child. If you believe it is the Princess, it is for
thee the Princess, although for those who see
with prosaic eyes it is but a gleam of sunshine
on the yellow leaves of a low bush. Run to thy
kind and dear Princess, thy source of love and
comfort, and feed thy hungry, empty heart.
Lavish upon her the love of thine overflowing
heart. Dear Child, thou shalt never know it is
not the Princess. For thee it is ever she.
VVith arms outstretched, face downward in the
careless, ignorant brook, his mother found him.
One foot still touched the stone which had caused
him to stumble, one hand still held sweet wild
fiowers, whose stems drank from the stream.
How often, in the short-sighted judgments of
men, do things happen just too late. The mother
found her child too late to save his life, indeed,
but in time to save her own. The Child had
died with his heart full and satisfied. The mother
awakened to real life with her heart full. True,
the Child upon whom she longed to lavish her
new-found love was taken away. Still, through
that death, she awakened to find God, and the
world, and life, and universal love, and beauty,

A VIEW IN THE PARK
'I' was with a great start that I awoke in the
twilight on that memorable night, last No-
vember. There were voices in the room, and,
evidently unconscious of any presence save his,
she was saying: " It is perfectly hopeless, dear,
you must not plead with me, for I am weak, oh,
you do not, cannot know, how weak." I lay
there in agony through the silence which fol-
lowed-a silence broken at last by a sob and
the words, " Philip, Philip you must help me! "
In answer to that appeal, he looked at her
steadily for a moment. and then seizing her
hands, whispered: " Yes, I will help you. Good-
bye, dear. God help us both." And with that-
he was gone.
I wish you could have seen her as she stood
in the firelight, which Hickered unsteadily and
played among the gathering shadows with a
leap and a dance. I know that you would have
watched her in surprise, just as I have watched
her many times, while a growing sense of wonder
would have overcome every other emotion.
She was beautiful -ah. I cannot tell you how
beautifulg for it was a thing to dream about, her
beauty, and many a time as, with royal, free
step, she moved about, I have whispered, " My
queen." That only-but that told all.
She stood with her hands lightly clasped befo1'e
her, a tall, straight figure, but her face I did
not see until a Hame of fire, leaping up, revealed
it to me in all its unutterable sadness. She stood
there, perfectly still, for many minutes, but, as
the darkness deepened and the light faded from
earth, she went out, slowly, wearily. I knew
she would go to her room, not to weep, but to
learn to endure.
She is my only sister, you know, but I, who
should have been her help and her comfort, was
chained to my couch in never-ending misery of
mind and of body. Thus it was that, unable to
move, I had been the witness of my dear Ol'lC'S
suffering. After she l1ad left, however, with
-nurse's help, I crawled back into my own room,
and so it was here that she found me, when S119
came to attend to my wants.
Kneeling down beside my couch, She took
into her hands, which would tremble in spite of
all, my own. Then knowing what I did, I said
Softly, yC211'11i11gly, " Margaret, is it Philip?" I
suppose she thought I had read the story in her
face, for she did not seem surprised as she whis-
pered, "Yes, dear," but the voice was " full of
unshed tears," and the firelight flashing up
showed me a white, set face, which was, never-
theless, a face strengthened by self-Sacrifice and
ennobled by suffering.
How well I remembered the time a while
before, when my darling had come to me with
eyes and face alight, I had asked 1101- the Samc
question, " Margaret, is it Philip? " and 51113 had
said, " Yes, dear," but ah, with such different
Now-and oh, the pity of it all--he was
gone. He had come to claim his bride, but she
had said him nay, partly for my sake-I knew
it only too well-and partly for the sake of
father. Poor father! Even when Margaret suf-
fered most, suffered for him and for me, I could
call him that.
It was when mother died that father wrecked
his life in the endeavor to drown grief. You
know what that means-why tell the whole
pitiful story. It is best to cover up the sins of
the past and of the present too.
The saddest part of all, to me, was that Mar-
garet had to bear the burden. When she refused
Philip at first, he would not give up hope. It
was hard, you know, for him to see the light of
his life go out into utter darkness. Ilut from the
first I knew how it would end, and I prayed God
to let me die, that I might not see my darling
suffer. Coward that I was!
When the final blow came, and he had gone,
I could do nothing but put my arms about her
neck and whisper, " Sweetheart, my sweetheart!"
The sense of my own impotency was galling,
and somehow, divining this, she rose from her
knees and walked to the window, till we should
both be more calm. Then it was that I said in
my heart, " You are not a queen, but an angel."
During the next two or three days an inde-
finable change came over her: it was inevitable,
of course. She was an angel, but she was a
woman too, moreover, a woman whose hopes of
happiness had been shattered.
It seemed to me that we lived in a dream for
many weeks - and all during that time I looked
first at father and then at myself, thinking how
pitiful it was that one helpless man and one help-
less woman had cost so much.
In those days, Margaret grew almost saintly
and so much so that at last when I thought of
purity, faith, hope, charity, I called them all by
one name - Margaret.
There has come to me, since I have been lying
here, this thought that those who suffer worthily
grow larger in heart toward all humanity. They
tell me, now, that among the children of the
poor my darling is called, " Our dear lady," and
I can well believe it.
Do you remember what Longfellow said about
Evangeline? Yes? Well, in my heart I repeat
those lines every day. It really seems as if I do,
indeed, behold " gleams of celestial light encircle
her forehead with splendor." It may be that
it is my love which transfigures her face, but,
however she looks to others, all .know her
patience, devotion and love.
May God bless you, Margaret- my Margaret.

E loitcr at the class-room door,
As fain to go, yet forced to stay,
We con our shibboleths once more,
And wonder what we'll have to-day.
O, lucky star, be with us yet,
Lest we forget, lest we forget.
" From known to the akin unknowng "
" There's but one Method," we must say,
" Have answers germane to the pointg "
What do you think we'll get to-day?
The ink upon our cuffs is wet,
Lest we forget, lest we forget.
" Have detinite and special aims "-
I know I cannot get it right-
" And all the work must be clean-cut,"-
I never was in such a fright!
My lucky star, shine for me yet,
Lest I forget, lest I forget.
I've had old note-books by the scorcg
My friends' best plans I've handed ing
I never thought one lesson outg l
I really fear it was a sin.
So, now, my cuffs with ink are wet,
Lest I forget, lest I forget.
Now, if perchance I should cast off
Convention's chains, and do a bit
Of work that really was my own,
I wonder what would come of it?
Rebellious heart! presumptuous word!
But still the inner voice is heard.
Let's cast all formulas away,
Think our own thoughts, and speak our mind
NVhate'er may hap, be our own selves,
And leave all doubt and fear behind.
No matter then what work is set,
VVe need not fear that we'll forget.

HEN the leaves of early autumn,
Tinged with gold, fall far and near.
Those who walk in Nature's garden
Think and feel " Septe1nber's here."
ut the dwellers in our city
Pay no heed to leaves of brown,
We all mark th' approach of autumn
By the Freshman in the town.
VVe can tell it at the station
By the crowds that leave.each train,
VVhere the cheeks of tender maidens
Bear a mark, not travel-stain.
More than ever do we know it
When th' expressmen swear and frown,
As they point to loads of baggage,
And say: " Freshie's come to town."
Note conductors on the trolleys
Marked " Pine Hills " or "Belt Line A,
See th' expression on bland faces
Slowly change to grave from gay.
They are frantic answering questions,--
" Lark street? " " Hudson? " " Going down? "
That are put to them by dozens
Of the Freshmen just ill town.
Day by day we see them passing
On their way, the young, the brave,
Varied types with ages ranging
From the cradle to the grave.
Each one talks of percepts, concepts,
Sketches, plans -not strange that sound,
VVe exclaim at once: " lt's autumn,
And the Freshman's just in town."
Every insect in the country
Knows it just as well as we,
And makes haste to warn his neighbors,
That together they may fleeg
Thus escaping death which yearly
Comes to kin, for miles around,
In those crystal cells marked " Poison,"
Kept by lffreshmeu in the town.
VVhat a keen and watchful vigil
Must policemen in the park
Keep on every leaf and blossom,
Tree and shrub, from morn till dark.,
Let there be a plant quite foreign,
One like which few can be found,
It's the very thing that's wanted
By the Freshman now in town.
Do you wonder then, that summer
Is to us a treasure dear?
That we hail its approach with pleasure, .
After siege of winter drear?
In the grass now chirps the cricket,
In the tree tops thrushes brown,
join the universal chorus:
'floyl the Freshman's left the town."

IVE thanks, my heart, to each green tree
That hides my prison walls from me. '
I will dream myself happy and free-
l1Vhy awake from a vision so sweet?
Am I not by broad heaven surrounded?
Does not my gaze, free and unbounded,
Reach out over limitless space?
See! There where the dark grey fog mountains
Begins of my kingdom the boundaryg
And these clouds, one another southward
Toward the far ocean of France are hastening.
Hurrying clouds, ships of the air!
Would I might wander, sail with you there!
Greet kindly the land of my youth.
I am in prison, in chains I lie bound,
Be ye my envoys! No others I've found.
High and free through the air lies your way,
Ye are not subjects of I'Iate's cruel sway.

One myth and many
AS that a yawn? I started. On this
lovely summer day I l1ad strayed far
from the road where my wheel was
waiting, and now was alarmed as the evidence
of a human presence near. The sound seemed
to come from beyond a group of shrubs. I
stepped up and peered over.
On the ground lay an old, old man, very tall,
evidently once strong and muscular, now
withered with age. His long white hair and
beard were in anything but picturesque confu-
sion, and his dress -tattered and ragged, so that
its fashion was almost unrecognizable, was
yet of no fashion I had ever seen, except in some
picture of " The Landing of the Pilgrims," or the
I-Ie was sleeping but lightly, for at my excla-
mation of surprise he opened wide a pair of blue
eyes still bright and merry, and murmured,
drowsily: " Good day." Then, eagerly: " Who
are you? Where from? Where am I? "
-I briefly stated my name and place of resi-
dence, also the whereabouts of the spot he had
chosen for a nap. Then he asked what year it
was. " Year?" I answered, " why, 1900, of
course. Have you been asleep for twenty years
like Rip Van Winkle?"
" Like Rip Van Winkle!" he repeated. "I
am Rip Van Winkle."
"But," I stammered, " but Rip Van Winkle
died, I thought. He slept twenty years, and
woke to find his friends gone, and- he died," I
concluded, lamely. n
The old man's eyes filled with tears. " True,"
he muttered, " gone, all gone "- turning to me:
"How do you know of Rip Van Winkle? "
" IfVhy, a man named Washington Irving
wrote a story about him, which is printed in a
book and known everywhere, Zllld a great actor
has made a play of it."
A smile flitted over his face, which was, cer-
tainly, one of gratified vanity. " In a book," he
said. " In a book and known everywhere.
VV ell, it was a wonderful story. But I didn't
die. I came back to the mountains and went to
sleep againf, " But over there is the spot," I
said, waving my hand. " I didn't say I went to
the same place," he snapped, " and how did you
dare come so far alone? Aren't you afraid of
"Fairies!" I laughed, " there are no such
" No fairies!" gasped he, " how then is any-
thing wonderful done? "
" We do it ourselves," I laughed. " You may
mention any fairy tale that we canft match.
Try and see."
" Let me think," he said. "Have you any
Seven-League Boots, such as the clever giants
" No, but we've carriages propelled by steam
that move at the rate of sixty miles an hour.
America has grown to be something like the
land where a fairy queen took the hand of a lit-
tle child named Alice, and ran with her at break-
neck speedg their feet never touched the ground,
they panted for breath 3 yet, on stopping, they
were in the spot where they began. 'Why,'
panted Alice, 'this is a strange land. In my
country, when we run like that we always get
somewheref ' Poohl' sneered the queen, 'that
must be a slow way of living. Here we have to
run as fast as We can to keep in the same place.' "
" But you've no Prince Eine Ear, who could
hear the very insects humming? "
" No, but we've an instrument by which we
can distinguish sounds as fine as those you men-
tion, it is called an audiphone. And by
another, people thousands of miles apart can talk
to each other. And instead of Prince Hassan's
Enchanted Horse that flew through the air like
a great bird, men go around the world on
wheels of steel. And do you remember how,
when a knight of old left his lady love, he had a
mirror, and whenever he looked into it, he saw
only her face? Now, the same look is caught
and held forever, and is called a photograph."
" Well, you l1aven't a Sleeping Beauty?" he
asked, so wistfully, it pained me to answer.
. 'f There is a case on record of a French woman
who had gone to sleep in 1808, and was still
alive and still slumbering thirty years later, fed
by an occasional crumb."
Warming to the subject, I went on: " We have
learned that William Tell is a myth, and that
Bluebeard really lived. The Philosopher's
Stone, which turned everything it touched into
gold, is found to-day in one little, narrow lane,
called Wall street. Aladdin's Lamp to-day is the
limitless purse of a multi-millionaire, which can
bring the treasures of the uttermost parts of tl1e
earth at his bidding. The Eiffel Tower is the
beanstalk for our Modern Jack to climb, and he
mounts it in an elevator. The mighty genie,
confined in the limits of a tiny jar, is the tremend-
ous force of electricity, which turns darkness into
light, or devours time and space at man's com-
mand. The marvel of the speaking statue in the
Arabian Knights is excelled by a little box which
we may send wherever it shall please us to speak
the words we have taught it to say in the very
tones we used. The wonder-worker of the nine-
teenth -century belongs to us Americans, this
fairy godmother is a man, and his name is
Thomas Edison. Red Riding Hood and her
wolf start out by different paths for the cottage
of the poor. We know the name of the wolf at
the door to be Hunger, and the little girl is
Help, but, thanks to the Christian charity of our
day and our land, Red Riding Hood is Heeter of
foot than the savage wolf, and reaches the cot-
tage Hrst. The Giant Killer goes out to light
against Ignorance and Vice, twin monsters, who
confront him while he is yet a stripling, but who
can doubt the issue, when his sword is strong
and supple, and is marked in golden letters on
the hilt: ' A Common School Education? ' "

Had only consulted me,
An ocean of wine should flow in the pl
Of the brackish and bitter seag
Red wine should pour from the fruitful clouds
In place of the tasteless rain,
And the fountains should bubble in ruby rills
To brim the sparkling main.

No bowers but the shady vine,
And of all earth's flowers tl1e queenly rose
Should alone in her beauty shine,

ING Winter sat on his throne l1igh up in
his ice palace, and ruled over all the land.
I-lis palace was built of blue and glowing
ice blocks, polished to look like marble and one
could see through them as though they were
glass. His throne was a great ice chair covered
with a bear's skin, and on either side sat his
trusty advisers, jack Frost and Santa Claus, on
smaller thrones. The king had a great high
crown set with lustrous snow crystals, and all
day long, the palace echoed with peals of laugh-
ter, for the ice fairies and snow elves are jolly
One day at the other end of the world, a little
brown bear awoke after his long winter nap and
sleepily thrust his nose out into the world, from
the door of the cave where he lived, but he saw
nothing but ice and snow, so he went back again
to sleep. In a day or two, however, he woke
again, and came to the door, and this time the
sun shone so brilliantly and the air seemed so
bright, that he hastily turned and ran back in
the cave. If one only could have seen through
the darkness of the cave, he would have had
something to remember. There, back in the
cave, lay two beautiful children, fast asleep. The
little bear ran back to them, and, pressing his
nose lovingly against their faces, he awoke them
gently. The children arose slowly and came out
to the edge of the cave. The taller was dressed
in a short green silk robe and, as he came to the
door of the cave, he reached out for his little
sisteris hand. She was dressed in white, em-
broidered with silver lilies.
" Let us come out for a walk, dear Easter,"
said the boy. Easter assented ffor such was her
namej, and the two went out a little ways. But
the air pierced, through their frail clothes and
sharply pinched their delicate limbs. " Dear
brother," said little Easter, " I cannot go farther.
I am too coldf' The boy looked sadly around.
" Dear Easter, we must let the earth people know
we are at hand, but," he added, as a fresh gust
shook them through and through, "I do not
see whatever we shall do." Very sadly and
wearily the children picked their way back to
the cave. They sat down and looked at each
other blankly. 'WVhat shall we do?" said
Spring, the brother. " What shall we do?"
echoed Easter. '
Inst then the West Wind came softly by. He
spied the shivering children at the cave door,
and hurried to them. They snuggled up close
to his warm, soft heart. " What shall we do to
let the earth people know we are coming? " said
Spring. " XVhy not send a messenger?" asked
the West NVind. " Why not, indeed," said
Easter, her tender blue eyes opening wide as
violets. "VVho shall we send?" asked Spring,
Nthe little brown bear is too sleepy, can you
go?" "No," said the West Wind, "I must go
to make Summer for other lands. I have too
much to do. VVhy not send the squirrels?"
" The squirrels are too silly," said Spring, " they
will not stay still long enough to hear the mes-
sage." " Then try the birds," said the West
Wind. " Oh,', cried Easter, " the birds are only
just leaving the South, and they are too busy
with their own affairs."
just then a little bunny, with lovely soft brown
eyes, hopped up to Spring and said, wistfully,
" Dear Spring, could I take your messages? I
can run fast, and I will tell everyone I see."
Spring and Easter clapped their hands, and
said together, "Oh, Bunny, you are the very
one to go." " But," asked the West Wind gently,
" are you brave enough, little Bunny? Are you
not afraid of the big men?" "Yes," answered
Bunny, trembling, "I am very much afraid, but
I will try my best, just the same." Then Spring
put his arms about the faithful Bunny's neck.
"Tell everyone you see, dear little friend, that
Spring is coming, and everyo11e -must say good-
bye to Winter." "And tell them, too," said
Easter, looking lovingly at him, " that they shall
live forever, for Spring always follows Winter."
And she gave him a little green basket all filled
with bright colored eggs, to give to all men to
remember her by. The X1Vest Wind kissed the
little animal, and Spring also kissed him, while
little Easter held him close to her without speak-
ing,for a minute. Then the little rabbit, tremb-
ling with joy, sped swiftly away, and was soon
out of sight.
"Well," said the West Wind, "I must get to
work." " Thank you, so much, for all you
did for us," said Spring, and Easter held out lov-
ing arms to the Wind who touched her soft, gold
curls lightly. As the Wind went away, the chil-
dren sat quite happy, for they knew that the
rabbit was a faithful, brave messenger, and they
could trust him thoroughly.
The little rabbit ran swiftly over the country.
He made up his mind to go to the Winter King
first, for he knew him to be the most important
person in the world at that time, and, therefore,
that respect was due to him. So, though his
heart failed him, he made his way bravely
through the snowdrifts, every tree that he passed,
and every bush he roused and said to them:
" Live foreverg Spring follows VVinter and
Spring is on the way." And, behold! as the
rabbit ran, the air became milder, and on the
edge of the basket he wore around his neck, vio-
lets burst into Howers, blue and trusting as the
eyes of little Easter.
Two great, stiff icicle-guards were watching at
each side of the palace door, but, though they
were so tall and straight, they could' not catch
the bunny as he scampered between them,
straight to the lower step of the NVinter King's
throne. Now, the Winter King hated the smell
of violets, it always made him sneeze, and he
began to sneeze so hard that his big crown rolled
off, clanging down to the polished ice fioor.
" Live forever! Spring follows Winter and Spring
is on the way! i' cried bunny rushing away. And
wherever his feet had touched, the ice melted
and violets came up in his footprints. Santa
Claus began to grow warm and had to take off
his red cap and open his red jacket, while jack
Frost, who was the busiest person alive and who
never could sit still a moment, sat quite still and
quiet in a corner alone.
All through the land the bunny ran, telling
the birds, who were coming from the South,
rousing bees, fiies, big and little animals till
finally he came in sight of a little village.
" Whatever shall I do to tell the men," thought
the poor bunny. 'K What should I do if they
caught me? " And he felt quite troubled.
But, while he puzzled, some little children
came out to play. " Oh," said bunny to himself,
"that child looks like little Easter. Surely, she
won't hurt me." And he went up timidly to
them and said: 'f Little children, live forever,
Spring follows VVinter, and Spring is on tl1e
The children were so glad that they rushed off
into their houses and told their mothers. The
mothers cames to the doors and said: " Surely,
the rabbit spoke truth. How soft and sweet the
air is? " and when the fathers came in from work
they heard it, too, so that everyone knew it, but
that was afterwards.
" But did you thank the rabbit for his news? "
said the mothers. " No," said the children.
" We were so glad we forgot it, but we will go
now and see if we can find himf' The bunny
was gone when they got back, however, and
where he had been there lay the little green bas-
ket full of eggs. The children were so happy
that they took out the eggs. The more they
took out, the more came into the basket, so that
not only the village children had some, but
there were enough for all the children in the
world. And where the violets dropped from the
baskets, there they took root and came up, till
finally the snow was quite crowded off the
When the little rabbit had done his work he
came back tired and happy to Spring and Easter,
who awaited him joyfully, and when he had told
his success they told him that every year he
should go out and tell everyone the Spring
Then Spring and Easter went forth hand in
hand and Spring carried a rod of willow-pussies
with which he touched all the trees, and they
broke out into leaf and blossom. But Easter
touched them with a spray of sweet-smelling
white lilies and bade the flowers turn their faces
up to the great warm sun and to God and give
thanks for their renewed life, and all men, wher-
ever these two passed by, felt they should never
die, and fervent love sprang up in their hearts.
On their way the brother and sister met three
bowed-down old men. Easter recognized Santa
Claus. She felt sorry for him, he looked so
tired. And, as the other two looked up, the
children saw they were the Winter King and
" Never mind," said the King, as he faced
them, " I am tired and must rest, there will come
a time when all the leaves and flowers will be
tired, too, and then I will come again."
"And I," said Santa, " I, too, will come again
when I have finished my work in the toy-shop,
but there are so many new children in the world
that I forsee an extra quantity of toys will have
to be made."
"I must hasten back, too," said Jack Frost,
"and make my yearly supply of snow blankets
to cover the sleeping Howers and leaves. And
when you, too, are ti1'ed, dear children, I, too,
will come again and cover you with the softest
snows that I can make."
So saying, they departed their way. That was
the last that was seen of the Winter King and
his friends for many a day. I
As for the little brown bear, he spent all sum-
mer near a beehive where the bees gave him all
the honey he could eat.
And this is the reason why at Easter time we
see rabbits in all the store windows.

COLLEGE CHAPEL KSOUTH VIEW?
URING the college year from September
until April,'the following course of lec-
tures has been given:
On Monday evening, December the eleventh,
Lieutenant Godfrey L. Carden, Ordnance Officer
of the U. S. S. Manning, of Admiral Sampson's
fleet, delivered his illustrated lecture, "Witl1 the
Men Behind the Guns," in the college chapel.
Lieutenant Carden's delivery and apt expression
was especially worthy of mention. There was a
marked absence of technical terms and when
they did creep in, an explanation always fol-
lowed. Many of the pictures thrown upon the
screen were taken by the lecturer, and he spoke
throughout with the ease and assurance of one
who had received his knowledge at first hand.
The views of the "White Squadron l' were
very beautiful. Lieutenant Carden praised the
men who stood behind the guns, saying that the
war has demonstrated that success depends more
upon the men than upon armor and weight of
A stereopticon exhibition of the paintings by
Tissot was given in the college chapel on Tues-
day evening, February the sixth, under the aus-
pices of the Albany Camera Club.
There was shown but a portion of the entire
collection, which numbers Z1lJ0l1t'463. Consid-
ering that a large number of these views are
made from pictures hardly more than eighteen
inches square, and, in many of which, more than
one hundred figures are represented, the artist's
skill falls little short of the marvelous.
The pictures are wholly religious in their char-
acter, representing different phases of the life
of our Lord. One of the most striking groups
exhibited was the one devoted to I-Iis birth and
death. The views were explained by the Rev.
Dr. Archibald Love, who, as an eye-witness of
the places depicted, added many interesting facts.
One of the valuable ways of becoming ac-
quainted with new lands is through views illus-
trating the country and the life of the people.
Wlien to this is added the experiences of one
who has made the country his residence, the
advantage is still greater. Captain Henry F.
Goldman gave the students of the college and
their friends an instructive talk on the Island of
Porto Rico, Monday evening, February the
The lecturer treated the subject from com-
mercial, educational, social and political points
of view. Some of the slides were very attractive
from the fact that they were colored, thereby
adding beauty and naturalness to the scenery and
objects presented. ,
On the evening of February the fifteenth, there
was given an illustrated lecture, the title of
which was " Good Roads."
It was' the purpose of the lecturer, through
the aid of the stereopticon, to show the need of
reform in the making of our roads. While show-
ing these reproductions, he took occasion to
teach the advantages of good roads from the
pictured contrasts of those in America and in
During the past month, the College has had
an opportunity to enjoy several delightful enter-
tainments given by the Albany Camera Club.
The first of these exhibitions represented a
wide range of scenery and of studies in Hamilton
and Toronto, Frankford and Orange. Every
lover of the fine arts was well rewarded for
attending, as the collection contained many pic-
tures of rare harmony and beauty.
On December the fourteenth, views were
shown, illustrating scenes in New York, Brook-
lyn and Philadelphiag and on january eighteenth
scenes in Montclair and Newark were exhibited.
Again on the evening of February the fifteenth,
the faculty and students of the college had the
pleasure of gathering together to see another of
these fine exhibitions. This time, the views
represented scenes in Orange, N. J., Montreal,
Ottawa'and Toronto. The pictures presented
were unusually interesting and beautiful and
could not fail to please those who were so for-
tunate as to see them.
'Tis Sweet Indeed
91915 sweet when summer-time is near,
And odor-laden days are long,
In thicket, bush and hedge to hear
The birds' soft melodies of song.
Then all the pulses in us thrill,
And praises to the Maker fill
With echoes every dale and hill,
" How fine! "
'Tis sweet to watch the bud unfold
Its tiny petals, sweet to see
The rose, e'er in it yet is told
A half the story there to me.
Its mem'ry's like an endless chime,
Kept ever ringing in a rime
VVith perfect cadence-tune and time,

HAT an infinite stretch of distance, rep-
resenting that upward struggle and
myriads of activities in mind and heart,
lies between the cannibal feast of the Fiji
Islanders and the intellectual banquets of a col-
lege commencement, with its suggestiveness of
endless hope and promise for the future welfare
of the nation and race. This does not mean that
graduates are finished and perfect specimens of
humanity. No, the senior is not perfectg at
least most of them are not, nor do they think
As the senior hears the president say, " Pro
auetoritate mihi commissa," and receives his
diploma, he is dazed. Behind him, happy child-
hood and youth, before him, manhood's battlings
and strivings. I-le hears the surges of the great
sea, calling him, inviting him to try his powers.
His life has Hoated down a stream thus farg from
its very sourcenhas he followed it, until to-day
he fioats out upon the sea. It is smooth sailing
now. The setting sun shines kindly on him, the
cooling breezes fan his fevered cheek, and the
murmuring waves clap their hands in joyous
welcome. He looks behindg the river of the past
is radiant with the reflection of the setting sung
as he grows older, this happy past of his will
glow with brighter and brighter brilliancy, and
when clouds are darkest, when winds are wildest
and waves highest, some pleasant scene of his
childhood will glow like a diamond surrounded
by blackness. He will often long to sail those
smooth stretches again. He looks forward, the
great sea is before him. How soft its caresses
now, but how sharp its concealed claws. He
is alone on the sea of life. Night is coming on.
He must toil in darkness till morning breaks.
Perhaps it will never break--for him. He
knows not. He only hopes, and with a last,
long, lingering, loving look at the sunset-radiant
river, he turns resolutely to the rolling, pathless,
limitless ocean - the future.

his conduct. If he is a farmer, we find him
neglecting the cultivation of his fields because
the weather does not suit him. It is either too

conditions of the markets. Commodities are too
high or too low. If he is a mechanic, he finds
difficulties in the place, the tools or the materials
with which he has to work. If he is a student,
he finds opposition in everything-uncongenial
classmates, incompetent instructors and a
wrongly-planned curriculum. The human mind,
if not occupied with honest business, finds time
to create many excuses. But tl1e industrious
farmer finds no difficulty in the weather, the in-
dustrious merchant no difficulty in the market,
the industrious student no difficulty in the work
mapped out for him to do. The difficulties ofthe
sluggard are purely imaginary, they are merely
dreams of idleness-the trouble lies not in his
surroundings--but in himself. Brete Harte, in
a little poem called " Fatef' shows the usual end
of those who find excuses in their surroundings
for delaying duty:
The sky is clouded, the rocks are bare,
The spray of tempest is white in airg
The winds are out with the waves at play
And I shall not tempt thle sea toiday.
.1 .1 .. .. ,,.
The trail is narrow, the wood is dim,
The panther clings to the arching limb,
The lion whelps are abroad at play
And I shall not join the hunt to-day.
:lr :le xl: rl: sk
But the ship sailed safely over the sea,
And the hunter came from the chase in glee,
And the town that was founded upon a rock,
Was swallowed up in the earthquake shock.
That "procrastination is the thief of time," is
an old saying, but it as true as it is trite. 'ifo-
morrow is a dangerous creditor upon which to
burden the unliquidated debts of to-day. To-
morrow is yet a sealed book. Yet how many of
us defer our best life's chances on to-morrow's
uncertain performance of duty. The sentimental
idealist may drift along on the waves of hope,
trusting to reach to-morrow's shore in safety, but
if the current is not properly measured to-day
he is likely to become a wreck upon the surging
morning tide. To-day is our vantage ground.
To-morrow, like yesterday, is in the mysterious
hands of fate.
But difficulties are not all imaginary. There
are often real difficulties in the path of our en-
deavors. Difficulties that must be fought with
and conquered in many a grim and hard-fought
battle. But, suppose such is the case, have we
even then an excuse for lying on our backs and
bemoaning our hard circumstances? just stop
a moment and let us ask ourselves the candid
question: What right have we to be crying about
difiiculties? To what end have we been given
nerve and muscle, brain and brawn, but that we
might have the where-with-all to battle with the
difficulties we meet, and if we needs must fall, to
fall fighting. It often takes a great emergency
to bring out what is best as well as what is worst
in man. Natures are then stripped of their ve-
neer, and, standing out in bold relief, are seen for
just what they are. We all know the difference
between military parade and war. The military
evolutions of a company are quite different in
the absence than they are in the presence of the
enemy. There are men who are useless on
parade who are excellent men in the actual con-
flict, and vice versa. The time to test the mettle
of a soldier is when he is under actual fire. His
value is determined by how well he can face the
enemy. We are all coming or have come into a
state where we are to be tested, and the way we
carry ourselves in that trial, whatever that trial
may be, will be the real test of our character.
An eminent writer has said: " Struggle is
essential to strength. If nature would grow a
pumpkin she lets the thing lie close down in the
lap of earth and covers it with broad leaves and
surrounds it with rank vegetation. Thus shel-
tered from wind and rain there is nothing for the
mass of pulp to do but vegetate.
When nature wants an oak tree, she makes
the sapling stand forth in the openg bare its life
to all the storms of heaven and bend its strength
against every wind that blows." So great ob-
stacles are not to check action, but to give power
for development. It is only as difficulties are
conquered that oneis nature is ennobled.
We cannot afford to relinquish our purposes at
the sight of difficulties, for, by doing so, we brand
ourselves as pumpkin-made or cowards.
We must not look upon our struggles as hope-
less because they are hard. Nothing ever has
been accomplished which was not first begun.
No man can cross a river by standing on the
bank, and no man will accomplish a purpose by
looking at the difficulties in the way. In every
undertaking there is a Rubicon to be crossed,
after that there may be weary marches and hard
battles, but victory is at the end. What has
been done can be done again, ask only " Is it
right? Is it expedient?" If it is then go at it
with a will.
It is for us to set out ideals boldly, to place
them high, and then strive for their translation
into life. For making the ideal real in character
is the purpose of the years we spend on earth, of
the tears we shed and the joys we experience.
With this as the final goal of our life the end
cannot be defeat.
Suppose we all follow an ideal that is as im-
possible of attainment as the " pot of gold l' at
the rainbow's end, suppose we come to the close
of life and find ourselves no nearer the " pot of
gold," and looking up see that even the beautiful,
alluring rainbow colors have faded and vanishedg
have we then failed? No, for the struggle has
developed strength. i
Do you think that Norseman who held his
narrow vantage-ground at Stanford Bridge,
alone, against many Saxons, was vanquished
when he niet his deathblow by a spear thrust in
his back? No! he was just as much a conquer-
ing he1'o as if he had escaped at last without a
Most of us have seen a picture of that splen-
did 1'elief, " Death and the Sculptor." The
sculptor, after years of trial, is just lifting his
chisel to put the finishing strokes to his work,
when death, the messenger with the calm, in-
scrutable face, stretches forth his arm and touches
the eager figure, and the worker's hand is
stopped, the artist's work is not completed. But
he has not failed. For in the years of labor, the
soul of the laborer had become nobler through
the dreams of beauty within which he had been
trying to chisel in the stone without.
Yes, he who strives, though vanquished, still
Getting Our Report Cards
E assemble in the chapel,
Big and little, great and small,
VVith much chatter and confusion,
'Waiting till the blow shall fall.
Presently up looms the Doctor,
And we straightway hush our noise,
Knowing that, if we're not quiet,
I-Ieill soon squelch us girls and boys.
In his hand we see a packet-
Our report cards all are there:
Now some smile and seem light-hearle-l,
Others' brows are dark with care.
One by one the cards he hands out,
One by one we leave the room.
And outside we look for punches-
For 'tis thus we read our doom.
And when next we nleet together,
VVe can tell with little trouble
XfVhich one's cards were punched single,
VVl1ich one's cards were punched double.

tlllith apologies to mr. Longtellowl
'WELL me not, thou deceiving one,
Method work's a thing sublime!
If or my poor brain is quite undone,
lrVriting sketches all the ti1ne.
Plans, they haunt me! Sketches, too!
And in dreams I see them still,
The point, the matter Qmy hooclooj,
And the method, if you will.
Not to write and then be done,
Is our destined end or way,
But to write again another one,
Such is our work for each day.
Toil is constant, and Time is slow,
And our hopes, though once so high.
Now, and always, do ever go
Down and down, howe'er we try.
From known to related unknown,
From the simple to compound,
Please do not blame me if I groan,
For I heard some awful sound.
Trust not yourself, what once you learned!
For the dead Past is out of joint.
Take notes! - and all else be spurned,
,Tis not germane to the point.
Development and inductiong
Oh, which is best to be used?
Or, doesnlt he want deduction?
Uh, now see how I'm abused!
llut our faults can still remind us,
We will mark their fads in ink,
And, departing, leave behind us
Foot-notes in our books, methink.
Foot-notes that perhaps another,
Toiling o'er this Weary fen,
Some poor, tired, .brain-sick brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
We'll warn him of sound sensation,
And of thoughts contiguousg
Association train to shun,
For they're mistakes disastrous.
But for ourselves, 'tis Pd. B.,
That we now must strive to getg
And then, indeed, you'll surely see
How soon all else we'll forget!
No more of sketch and plan we'll dreamg
Of development no more,
But with forgetfulness we'll teem,
And with joy forever more.
-W. B. A
Let us then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate,
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Tho' we have to sit up late.

Dermal College Chapel
To-day for the last time we meet in thy halls
And pledge our allegiance to thee
To continue thy children whatever befalls
And true to old Albany be.
The future will bring us its pleasure and pain,
Will bring us its sorrow and joy,
But whenever we think of our college again,
May nothing our pleasure alloy.
Let us ever preserve recollections so dear
Of the days we've so happily passed,
And now as the time of our parting draws near,
We linger : we would they might last.
May the friendships we've formed ever constant remain
As the years swiftly by us shall pass,
And though in the future new friends we may gain,
May they ne'er take the place of our class.
-H. A. Mmexs
Che Class Poem
QQWAS an evening in September,
When from turret and from tower,
Chiming loud upon the stillness,
Struck the solemn midnight hour,
Sat I at my study table
Pondering many a problem o'er,
When I suddenly seemed standing
At the Normal College door.
Silently the door swung open,
And within the darkened hall
Stepped I slowly, half affrighted,
At the sound of my foot-fall.
And a woman came to meet me,
'Round her brows a crown of light,
But her face was sad and careworn,
And her hair was snowy white.
Daughter, I am Education."
" Mother, I am seeking thee,
Grant me but to touch thy garment,
Let me sit beside thy knee."
Daughter, dost thou know the troubles
That will lie thy feet before? "
" Mother, I have heard them often,
Aye, a thousand times and more."
Then a soft and gentle radiance
Overspread her features mild,
Lighting up her face with glory,
And I knew she had smiled.
Up the stairway passed we quickly
To a class-room on the right ,
W'hile behind us and before us
Lay the shadows of the night.
In this room a woman met us,
Tall and stately fair to see,
Education led me to her,
Thus I found Psychology.
I, 1ny friend so true and faithful,
Bring a pupil unto thee,
Take her by the hand and lead her,
Teach her truth, Psychology."
Soon we started on our journey.
Many friends I met that night,
Of whosehelpfulness and wisdom
'Tis beyond my power to write.
Science clothed in sweeping garments
Like the seers of long ago,
Mathematics, brave old warrior,
Clad in mail, from top to toe.
Latin, next, the stern young Roman
Bearing sword and shield of gold,
And his mother, Greek, beside him
With her face so fair and cold.
History, whose varied stories
Have and ever will allure,
Rhetoric with honeyed accents,
And her sister, Literature.
Pass we then before a class-room
With a grating o'er the door,
And such groans from thence proceeded
As I never heard before.
Pause," I cried, " Oh pause and tell me
Of these tortured shades we pass."
They are ghosts of practice lessons
Taught before the method class."
Ah! My conscience pricked so sorely
That I scarce knew what to dog
For I felt that I had murdered
Many of that mangled crew.
When at last, the day was dawning,
And the rosy fingered maid
Gpened wide the gates of morning,
Then the last farewell was said.
At the door stood Education,
Beckoned to us by a signg
Then I seemed to stand before her,
With the Class of ,9Q.
VVe stood in silence, then her voice
Rose clear upon the morning air,
A poet once compared our lives
To ships that meet and speak and part.
The sea is wide on which they sailg
A glance exchanged, a friendly hail
That echoes on from heart to heart,
And then each vessel onward drives.
A moment and they both have passed,
Like white-winged birds they Hit away
Into the night and then are gone,
Yet ever does each ship sail on,
Completes its course and one fair day
It reaches anchorage at last.
And thus you meet a little space.
You pledge your friendship each to each.
A little time and then you part.
One wish I give you from my heart
Before you pass away to teachg
And others come to take your place.
Where e'er the ships that meet to-day
Shall onward sail and fade away,
What e'er the storms that o'er them blow,
And the breakers roar on the rocks below,
May the beacon lights burn bright and pure,
Be the hand on the rudder firm and sure,
And the ships of your souls be given at last
An anchorage safe when the voyage is
Like distant bells whose mellowed chime past."
Rings out and summons earth to prayer: -Fannie M. Pendleton.
lllhat People Call Hmusements
ENTURIES ago a French chronicle said of
tl1e English people that they 21111115051
themselves too gloomily, 111eani11g tl1at
sucl1 strenuous efforts were exerted for amuse-
lTlCllt tl1at its true object, recreation after work,
was forgotten. To a certai11 extent this is true,
not only of our English forefathers, but of tl1e
American people to-clay. Society in general
sta11ds in need of honest and enjoyable recrea-
tion, wl1icl1 will enable men and women to per-
for111 tl1e duties of life 111ore completely and 111ore
As long as a11 individual has surplus strength
after tl1e toils of tl1e day are over, so long will l1e
crave for ZIlllllSCl'IlClltS. 'VVhen hope Zlllll energy
depart recreation is no longer sought for. This
is well expressed by Tennyson i11 tl1e beautiful
little poem wl1ere l1e describes tl1e vitality of tl1e
fisherman's boy and tl1e blithe sailor lad wl1o
sang as l1e plied tl1e oarsg but, alas for tl1e 011C
wl1o was intent upo11 " tl1e touch of tl1e vanished
l1a11d and the SOL111Cl of a voice tl1at was still."
joyousness had fled from l1in1, and in its place
had con1e sorrow.
One needs only visit tl1e metropolis of America
to discover tl1e so-called 21l1ll.lSCIll61ltS of tl1e
present. Wl1e11 tl1e work of the day 11215 bee11
acco111plisl1ed, the busy New Yorker is eager for
pleasure and l1e heartily enters i11to play. His fav-
orite place of amusement is tl1e tl1eatre. He likes
best romantic plays a11d social dramas and farces,
for l1e loves to laugh, a11d, therefore, l1e does 11ot
care for tragedy, n11less, perchance, tl1ere appear
in it SOIIIC idol of tl1e stage like Irving. Regard-
ing this, one 111a11 said: " I l1ave enough sad-
ness, enough trouble, enough tragedy in n1y
business life to COlTl1JlCtCly depress INC. What I
want in tl1e evening is an l1our or two at tl1e
theatre or opera, where tl1ere are 1lll1SlC, laughter
Zllltl singing." Scarcely a lll01'C interesting sight
C2111 be imagined tl1an tl1e sce11e prese11ted in son1e
large opera l1ouse at tl1e appearance of a great
singer. Tl1e building is literally crowded witl1
lllllllall beings. All are full of animation, a11d the
applause tl1at arises is deafening. Nowhere will
you behold 111ore beautiful wo111e11 a11d nowhere
will you see a- 11lO1'C dazzling display of jewels.
Amid all tl1is splendor and excitement o11e fancies
that l1e has been taken back into tl1e ron1antic
days of chivalry. If l1e will linger 'for a ti111e he
will be impressed with tl1e fact tl1at 1'llZ1lly are
inattentive to tl1e 111usic. It 111ay be that tl1e
voice of tl1e singer l1as been overwl1el111ed by tl1e
cl1arn1s of society gossip, one of the greatest
amusements of mankind, although it is not
generally so CO1'lCCClCCl. Tl1e social prominence
gained by attending tl1ese operas is eagerly
desired, a11d whether or not one cares for music
l1e seeks tl1e 111ost fashionable kind of a111use-
ment, k11owi11g that it will increase l1is social
Besides tl1e theatre a11d tl1e opera tl1ere are tl1e
bicycli11g and ridi11g acade111ies, tl1e skating rinks,
tl1e cl1arity fairs, tl1e balls give11 by political a11d
social clubs, the formal dinner parties, the
innumerable receptions and scores of other
amusements. These may afford pleasure at first,
but they soon come to be exceedingly monoto-
nous. However, money is liberally contributed
for them, and if one were to look at the financial
side of pastimes he might very well conclude that
the country was dotted with gold mines. In New
York card playing and dancing are no longer
sufficient in themselves. Musicians and actors
must be engaged to entertain the guests during
the progress of an evening, and a wealthy man
frequently spends a thousand dollars for this
Lectures and entertainments of the lyeeum
form very profitable amusements for the more
serious and reflective audiences, but generally
speaking the lecture is no longer popular. If it
could be made a sparkling presentation of wit
and humor it would be more favorably received.
If a study be made of the pastimes of a people
it will be found that there is a constant fluctuation
in their popularity. this factis noticeable in the
history of some out-door games. Fora time
tennis had great social prominence, but now it is
played mostly by experts. Witli the decline of
tennis, bicycling gained favor. For a long while
the lattert was considered a pastime fit for the
lower classes only and those who indulged in it
were called in derision " cads on casters." That
feeling has passed away, and bicycling is now
enjoyed by all classes.
It is evident that there is need of a more
rational system of amusements. Many of us
have dull hours, when we sigh for relief in the
form of true recreation. Different individuals
require different forms of amusement in order
that the mechanism of life may work with as
little friction as possible. Amusement, therefore,
is more than a privilege, it is a duty, indis-
pensable to the best development of all sides of
manis nature. Some claim that intellectual
amusements are what the world needs. If pas-
times of this nature become popular, tact and
perseverance will be required. Then when those
who are old no longer possess sufficient vigor to
enjoy these forms of recreation, others should be
devised, lest, like Sir George Lewis, the aged
exclaim: " The world would be very tolerable
but for its amusements.
It must be acknowledged that the nineteenth
century, with its progressive tendencies, has
failed to discover a variety of suitable forms of
recreation. Here is a task which might well
occupy the attention of a genius, and if he
succeeded all life might be rendered more enjoy-
able thereby. When men shall come to a realiza-
tion of the fact that life's hours are too precious
to be spent in any way that will not yield an
ennobling influence, then will they be ready to
accept true amusements which will tend to uplift
rather than to degrade. If rightly managed, the
opera and the theatre may have this ennobling
influence. There is nothing more soothing than
the strains of beautiful music. All the quiet, all
the rest which the world affords are- to be found
in it, while in dramatic action the deeds of the
past are wrought again and the thoughts of a
Shakespeare inspire and elevate the soul. To be
thus amused is to uplift character, and it is
amusements of this kind only which are worthy
for mankind to enjoy.

The llormalitfs Lament
N Geography we're flunked,
Lest we graduate too soon.
In Astronomy We're told to
Look for sun spots on the moon.
In Nature Study XVC,1'C sent
To catch a lot of flies.
In Number wc're made
Many methods to devise.
In Physics we launch
Out into Induction's laws.
In History we're informed
Each effect must have its cause.
In Huestedis Mathematics
'Tis there we have our fun,
But though he makes things easy,
Yet the work is always done.
In Psychology we trace
Our associations' train,
And then we realize
The smallness of our brain.
In Latin we're drilled
On discourses indirect,
And if we're "non pa1'att11s,"
Low markings we expect.
But in German, alas!
It is there that we meet
A terrific fate,
A downfall complete.
Der Lehrer est stern
Er hort keim petition,
And the end thereof is
Dass wir habf ein condition.
And our teaching, ah me!
With subject matter pat,
NVith animation plenty,
We get criticised at that.
When through, we're capable
CLaying aside all mirthj
Of teaching anything .
And everything on earth.
There's a cure for all our woes,
VVhich delights me much to tellg
Even now it stills my heart
As I hear the old electric bell.
IfVhen you're called up to recite
On some question rather fellg
There's nothing you'd rather hear
Than that old electric bell.
When you're not at all prepared,
And can almost hear your knell,
The thing that gives you most relief
Is the old electric bell.
When you're up before your class,
Trying some hard thing to tell,
Rather guess you're mighty glad
To hear that old electric bell.

EFORE the present collegiate year, the
State Normal College had, among its sev-
eral societies, no organization which was
purely literary in motive. Many of the students
felt that the help and inspiration from such a
society would be of no small moment, so, in the
early part of the year, The Shakespeare Society
It was thought advisable to spend the first
half of our time in the study of Shakespearean
dramas. Scenes from the plays were to be
enacted in costume, so that our talented members
might give us the benefit of their histriouic abil-
ityg papers on subjects suggested by the dramas
were to be read and discussed.
The program for the latter part of the year
was not to be restricted to the reading of Shakes-
peare. VVe desired to become better acquainted
with other dramatists. Among the plays con-
sidered were " The Rivalsf, " She Stoops to
Conquer," and as the crowning point of the
year's study we planned to have parts of Sopho-
cle's "Antigone," lint, alas! this alluring pro-
gram has not been carried out in full.
Tflowever, since The Shakespeare Society has
now become one of the organizations of the State
Normal College, we trust that those who follow
us will better fulfill the ideals of the Society, and
so we say, " Success to our successors."

Our Cycle Club
LBANY, like ancient Rome, is built upon
hills, and yet these are not of such a
nature as to make wheeling, within the
city's boundaries, unpleasant. Two fine parks,
a splendid boulevard, and good pavement within
the limits, and several good roads leading from
without, serve as sufficient enticement to counter-
act any tendency toward the non-usance of
cycling which, otherwise, the hills might cause.
Being appreciative of such conditions and of
the rapid advances made toward the more har-
monious and concerted action of the student
body, and being not unmindful of the numerous
advantages and pleasures resulting from an
organized body, a large number of enthusiastic
wheel-riders have started, what promises to be,
a prosperous cycle club.
The title of this organization is The Twentieth
Century Cycle Club, a name perhaps more appro-
priate than euphonious. However, whatever
lack of euphony there may be in the name, we
can boast of the harmonious and frictionless
spirit of good fellowship existent between the
members of this body.
The direct aim of this club is to encourage
Cycling by making it enjoyable, and with this
end in view several party trips have been planned
for this spring. These trips will be a striking
feature of the work of this club as there are
numerous beautiful places, particularly inviting
to cyclists, which surround the city.
The schedule of runs, as arranged, is:
Saturday, April 14.- Called' "A Study in
Local History," visiting the Schuyler Mansion
CAlbanyj, Fort Cralo CRensselaerj, and Forbes'
Saturday, April 21.- To Slingerlands.
Saturday, April 28.--TO the Cohoes Falls, via
the Northern Boulevard.
May 5.- To Schenectady, via the cycle path.
May I2.- To Averill Park fa picnic partyj.
May 19.-To Kenwood.
May 26.- Elective.
--To the Indian Ladder fpicnic
June 2.- Elective.
June 9.- To Sand Lake.
These trips, with one exception, that of May
30, are to be taken during the Saturday vaca-
tions. Thus the students will not only be able
to see the beautiful surroundings of Albany, but
will do so without any loss of time from the
daily preparation of class-room work, and in
similar manner everything is being done with a
view toward the perpetuation of one of the most
realistic and energetic clubs ever established in
james F. Vavasour.
HERE was an old maid from Peru,
Whose methods, she thought she'd review.
So she packed up her trunks, .
Came up, and made Hunks,
And tl1ey tell me her mind is askew.
There was a sweet primary teacher, -
VVhose critic oft swore to impeach herg
The questions she'd ask '
And the fright ,of her task,
Allthreatened to kill the poor creature.
There once lived a most pedagogical maid,
The youth of her village she kept quite afraid,
Her views educational
Seemed very irrational,
But the next generation were wonders, 'tis said.
There was an amazingly rustic young miss-
Her greenness and verdure amounted to this:
Wllen she went in the street,
The first teacher she'd meet,
With loud and explosive warm kisses she'd greet.
There was a remarkably brilliant young lad,
He took to psychology mortally bad.
To his mind he subjected .
And now no brain-centres for sometime l1c's had.
There once was a young college graduate sweet,
VVI1-ose scholars bowed down to the soles of her
Her learning extensive
Made man apprehensive
That all the great minds of the day, she would
There was a young lady called Seraphine Barton,
She started to teach in a free kindergarteng
As she thought that to sit on the floor was
And she sang like an owl, the trustees they did
Though that was the end of Miss Seraphine
VVhy that was a very good thing, I'm sure sartin.
There once was a sweet pretty Syracuse girl,
Who! gave up the fun of society's whirl,
To come to the Normal,
And live quite informal,
And study to teach young minds how to unfurl.
There is a poor lady named Rosabel Jones.
She studies the fiesh of her, all off her bones.
Her mind is appalling,
And simply enthralling:
Her studies do bind her, in spite of her groans.
There was a young student devoted to bugs,
l.t'f7I.tl0fft'l'll species, Coleoptera slugs,
His best girl most died
Wlien close up to her side
A small ccrambyr1'dac grub she espied.

7 A. M., THURSDAY.
V-: " Oh, joy! it's snowing. Now those
boys will give us that sleighride that they've been
talking about so long."
L--: "Don't you be too sure! It's easy
enough to talk, and those college men can do it
to perfection, but I won't believe that we're going
until I'm actually in the sleigh and Hying along at
a good rate."
Vi: " Well, if it keeps on snowing like
this, by to-morrow night there will be fine sleigh-
ing and they will really have no excuse for not
L-: "I certainly hope that the ride will
come off. Won't it be fun! I wonder who the
chaperones will be? "

fIn the corridor at Normal Collegej
Mr. M--: " Good morning, Miss V--.
Isn't this a great old snow storm? We college
men are planning to give a sleighride to-morrow
night. Will you go? "
Miss V---: " To be sure I will. We were
talking about it this morning over at the house,
and we wondered if you boys were going to
seize the opportunity to give us girls that long-
heard-of ride. QA bit sarcastically.j You're
quite sure it won't fall through this time. Such
things have been known to happen."
Mr. M-- frather coldlyj: " Usually when we
plan things we carry them through. 'l'here's the
bell. I'll see you again at recess, if I may."
QThey depart to chapel.j

Val: " Well, you see, I was right. The
boys have decided to have the ride to-morrow
night. Mr. M-1 told me about it before chapel
this morning. They aren't so slow after all."
Li fdolefullyj: " We haven't really started
yet, and you know, 'there's many a slip 'twixt
the cup and the lip.' "
Vi- fwith a hugj: " Oh, you dear old
croaker. Now, don't sit up late. You must be
fresh for to-morrow's ride, you know."

is line and that saucy little Miss Vi gave me
to understand yesterday that the girls think we
are slow and that this ride is just a fake, after all.
Let's put the thing through -make it a case of

A selection from a letter written by Miss L--
to a friend at home, Saturday evening, 7.30:
" Well, last evening at this time there were the
jolliest sounds in front of -- Lark. We rushed
to the window and there was a big sleigh half
filled with a shouting, screaming,laughing crowd
of young people. Some of them were blowing
on horns and some were singing, at the top of
their lungs, 'Come Away from dat Windowf
" Imagine our delight- we had thought it was
all off, the boys had looked so glum over at Col-
lege and had kept so mum on the subject all
day. Our hearts now reproached us and we in-
wardly resolved to do our best to give the boys
a good time. All this took but a moment. We
raised the window to say that we'd be with them
soon when the sounds of
" ' Rah, rah, rah, '
" ' Siss, boom, ah -
" ' Albany High School,'
burst on our ears. What a blow for us! This,
then, was the High School crowd come for the
daughters of the house.
'K VVe closed the window and went silently back
to our work of writing plans and preparing les-
sons. Miss V- was heard to murmur as she
retired to her own room, ' NVell, those boys are
slow! l "

The curtain falls in silent state 5
The plaudits of the crowd abate,
And hurrying through the green-r
The wearied actors leave the Hoor.
I only at the footlights wait.
m wk gi: vp
The play is all of youth's estate,
With college loves and joys elate:
And yet a sadness comes before
The curtain falls.
wk Pk Pk Sk
'Tis no great story we relate,
Be to its faults compassionate.
We only cry, with those of yore,
Num' plaudite! The play is o'er
At last, gooli night! the hour is late.
The curtain falls!

BRITISH ISLES: A newly-engraved map, in size 66 x 46 inches
handsomely colored. The physical features are well defined, par-
ticularly the rugged face of Scotland, which stands out in bold re-
lief. This is a. most desirable map for English history and litera-
ture, as all places of interest in English literature, as well as the
principal battlefields, together with the dates on which important
engagements were fought, are indicated.
AUSTRALIA AND PACIFIC OCEAN: This map, Covering as it
does about one-half of the earth's surface, shows at a glance the
United States and her neighbors at the West, including the entire
Pacific Ocean. It is hydrographic, in that the ocean depths are
shown by different shades of blue, and many curious relationships
may be traced in the elevations and depressions forming the bottom
of this ocea11. Our new relations with Hawaii and the Philippine
Islands, together with the critical political situation in easter11 Asia,
make this map indispensable for teaching current history.
RELIEF GLOBES: This is a new importation, made by a leading
German manufacturer. The elevations are shown in actual relief,
and the size, ten inches in diameter, allows considerable prominence
being given to the mountains and high table-lands. Itis handsomely
mounted on a mahogany stand with brass meridian. While it is
without doubt the most gerfect globe of the kind made, it is withal
moderate in price.
LIGHTS T0 LITERA TURL2 A series of iive readers, perfectly
printed, beautifully and appropriately illustrated. Children need
and deserve the best, and only the best of the beautiful poems and
classic prose have been choscnin making the selections for this
series. These books delight the eye, educate the taste, and cultivate
the heart. The Sprague Primer, a companion book to Lights to
Literature, is one of the prettiest and most fascinating books ever
made for children.
Catalogue and prices will be mailed on application.
