But lately, rumors m warfare have readied our ears! The two lower classes are engaged in a conflict ! Canes are the weapons used, and the hedges on the road to the village are the scenes of great struggles! Judging from this our fears may have been groundless. Among the many improvements which we notice, is that change in our college duties, which allows us to do manual labor in the Horticultural Department. Anyone would prefer to work among grape vines and peach trees, or have their labor laid out for them in the orchards during Septem- ber, rather than spend their time in general work on the farm. And yet, not content with this advance, many of us are selfish enough to be antici- pating that time when class work, as far as we are concerned, shall be a thing of the past. And now, as the college bell is slowly but surely ringing out the hours that will return no more, as its daily calls remind us that we are here for mental development, let us glance for a moment into the future. To many, perhaps, the darkness that enshrouds it is impenetrable, to others, dim rays of light may now be illuminating its horizon, while to some their future paths may already be lighted by the rising sun. In either case, let us finish our course, with a view to be led on to our proper sphere, hoping to do our duty, and with the sincerest intentions to make the world better through our efforts. In this way, we shall be able to fulfill the designs of our Creator ; by this course we shall be able to reflect honor upon ourselves and upon our Alma Mater, and be able to take our stand among her most cherished and devoted sons.

IJ HE clock that beats out the passing time for us has passed over two long years since we stood on the threshold of our college 2g P life. But as we look back and glance over them, we find that their value cannot be over estimated. The experience we have passed tlirough, and our contact with the world, has been of as much benefit, per- haps, as the knowledge gained from books. At the present time we find ourselves on the border of that dark mysterious cloud that overhangs the last half of oar college life, and as it lifts we are having gradually unfolded before us, let us hope, a year that shall be fraught with happiness ; one that shall increase our mental faculties, preparing us the better to fight life ' s battles ; and one that we can look back upon with pleasant recollec- tions, and remember as containing some of the most delightful of our younger days. Our vacation, short though it may have seeihed to many, prepared us for the severer work of our course. We have come back ready to do our work well, and while we will share in, and fully sympathize with that strain handed down by tradition : " In Junior year we take our ease, ■ Smoke our pipes and sing our glees, " we cannot help feeling that for us the thoughts are out of place. For we find that increased labor has been mapped out for us, and our earnest advice to the lower classes is not to rely too much on the future, but to strive that they may be better able to grasp this part of their college life. During the first half of our course, many pleasant scenes and exciting events passed before us, the honor of originating many of which, we humbly lay claim to. And in putting aside our Sophmore sports, for the dignity so natural to a Junior, we feared that our successors could not equal us, and that the days of noisy college life had gone never to return. 25
