I2 PHI DELTA ALPHA CHAPTER Phi Delta al 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. 14 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.

If the subject has aught to do with the value of the account, surely this article cannot be utterly valueless. 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. 18 o 'r A ta ii 'Ci fa lf -, 4 azvl i v m "Ti T13 4 A' T ' 3 Eta Phi Sorority - -.99 Officers President .... .. ........ .

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 atmosphere. 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 members. 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. J.

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 and entertainers. 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 impulses.

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. M. Louise Wzvrsox. X LOREN C. GUERNSEY. MILES S. HENCLE.

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 sought. 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 college. f" ' -- 1 W v WW W V ij?

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 guidance. 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 desk. '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 else. 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- A 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. HIISTORIAN. Gfficers President. . . .... . . . . First Vice-President. . .

MACCUTCI-IEON MARIE A. BERRY. -1 A 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 Ones." 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 ago. 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 pleasant places." HISTORIAN. 1 O1 1901 X 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. Campbell. Soon tl1e committee was organized and tl1C work distributed among its Il1Cl1llJCl'S. Gideon 45 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 student. . 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 University. 4 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 continuous service. 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 windows. 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.

Inspiration margaret S. moonev 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. Zhe fllbatross " 'Tis said the albatross never rests." HERE the fatholnless waves in magnifi- cence toss, Homeless and high soars the wild albatross-- Unwearied, unclaunted, unshrinking, alone, The ocean, his empire - the tempest, his throne. Wllen the terrible whirlwind raves wild o'er the surge, ' 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 free. When the winds are at rest, and the sun in his glow, 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 love. Untir'd, unfetter'd, unwatch'd, uneonfin'd, .Isle my spirit like thee in tl1e world of the mind, No longing lor earth e'cr to weary its flight, And fresh as thy pinions in regions of light. 4-H. L. R., 'oo. The flwakening 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 guessed. 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 to sleep. 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 home. 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 golden hair." 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, and strength. Marie A.

' ldomlmwe eyes dm. md faux-, cmadreffmiqsdiwqe A VIEW IN THE PARK margaret '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 ' 61 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 meaning. 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. Jessie I..

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 like.. 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? U "Fairies!" I laughed, " there are no such things nowadays." " 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 used? " 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, H 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."

I. .ev 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 little people. 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 '73 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 way." 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 ground. 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 tidings. 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 jack Frost. " 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. Mary W. Silliman, 'oo. COLLEGE CHAPEL KSOUTH VIEW? Chapel Lectures 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 metal. 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 twelfth. ,. 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 Europe. 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- Q 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.

B. " Che Graduate " 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 themselves so. 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.

Prove all things and hold fast that which is good. The weakest of all persons to get things accomplished is a scold. About the only men who can be influenced by logic are the judges of the Supreme Court. A teacher who can interest and keep good order will be a success even if she violates any recognized educational system. You can drink from a dirty tumbler with a great deal more safety than you can perform experiments with a dirty test-tube. The teacher who expects his pupil to remem- ber all the facts he has been taught is a rank tyrant. Never allow an emotion to develop Within, without letting it work out into some kindly action. ' The principal may find a real cantankerous teacher whom he has to sit on, but if he can get her to think she's doing as she pleases, while' she is really doing as he wishes, he's a success. Be an expert in some one thing. Donit try to embody all psychology in one essay, it's too broad. Remember the fate of the German who, in dying, said to his son: " Hans, in my life work I have made a great failure. I sought to master the third declension. I should have confined myself to the dative case." " Che 'failure " OST of us are sluggards, more or less. There are very few to whom the so-called " taking it easy " offers no charm. While we may not be besotted do-nothings, content to sink into our graves with only blanks on the credit side of life's account, yet at present we are principally engaged in paving a certain broad road with good intentions. Our plans for the future are good. We shall do something worth while some day. But just now there are difficulties hinder- ing us-there are lions in the way. It is 'very evident that these lions, whether real or imagin- ary, are dangerous beasts, dangerous to the best thing a man possesses-the power to do good work. The slothful man is ever making excuses for 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 cold or too hot, too cloudy or too wet. If he is a merchant he finds imaginary excuses in the 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 wound. 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 is victor. Q Q 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.

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?

Foot-notes that perhaps another, Toiling o'er this Weary fen, Some poor, tired, .brain-sick brother, Seeing, shall take heart again.

Sousa Class Seng 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. if Daughter, I am Education." " Mother, I am seeking thee, Grant me but to touch thy garment, Let me sit beside thy knee." Cf 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. Class Essay 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 satisfactorily. 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 prestige. 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 purpose. 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 Ji amusements of this kind only which are worthy for mankind to enjoy.

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 was formed. 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. 10 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." 5 gwgfvf B JCUHES Qwmmrh Dermal College Tennis Club .w Olfieers President. . . .... .---- - . - - Vice-President .... .

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' Manor fBathj. 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. May partyj. 30 --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 this institution. james F. Vavasour. 111 llormalite Jingles 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 . Stimuli unsuspected, 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 feet, Her learning extensive Made man apprehensive That all the great minds of the day, she would beat. 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 improper, And she sang like an owl, the trustees they did drop her, Though that was the end of Miss Seraphine Barton, 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. --M. W.

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 taking us." L-: "I certainly hope that the ride will come off. Won't it be fun! I wonder who the chaperones will be? " SCENE II. 8.45 A.

Let's put the thing through -make it a case of do or die." 122 Mr. W--: "Fm with you, old fellow. CMeditatively.j I think I'll ask Miss W--- to go with me.

RAND, NIGNALLY 81 COMPANY CHICAGO-NEW YORK 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.
