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.

■ ' 83. a. L pl EFORE we are aware of it, our pleasant sunamer vacation has T M 9 passed and we have entered once more into another fall term, with all its attendant duties and pleasures, the former of which far outnumber the latter, although, as we have grown a year older, we have gradually found that duties really contain more pleasure than we at first imagined. As we glance back over our first year, it reminds us of what we often see at the close of a summer ' s day ; the entire west seems to be enveloped in a dark cloud, and as we gaze the horizon is suddenly illumined by a blinding sheet of lightning, which brings to view objects which before were invisible. So it was with our first year. When we entered, our lives were. comparatively dark, as far as knowledge was concerned, and our first year was but a grand lighting up of our minds, which enabled us to see things M4iich before were as dark and impenetrable as Vesuvius itself. With this mental illumination came also the power which enables us to find pleasure and instruction at times and in places where others might find neither. While others may pass flowers by unheeded and unnoticed, we immediately think of their structure and how wonderfully nature has developed each different part ; so, too, the rocks and boulders, scattered over oar hills, convey no idea of their origin to many, while to us they are like a library of the most interesting books, telling us not of the present or future, but of ages and ages ago, when our earth was in its primitive stage and unknown to man. And if in one year we have learned to enjoy so much more of life, what must we enjoy during a life-time of steadily increasing knowledge. 38
