■ ' 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

Now in this mental illumination we saw, just peering over the horizon, what seemed to be ashadaw of our old selves, with rough, ragged edges, which had never been worn off by contact with grave professors and reck- less Sophomores, and as the shadow became plainer we saw that it was the class of " 84. And this class, like all Freshman classes, thought itself superior to everything and everybody, but how soon it found out its mis- take ! To begin with, it was not superior to force, especially the force of a battering-ram ; and how motherly we tucked them into bed, in order that they might sleep well, and gave them nourishment in the form of milk. During the course of our first year we lost many of our classmates whom we still remember and whose loss we mourn. Now we have commenced our second year ' s work, and with our hands and hearts in our studies, let us be able to say, " knowledge is power. " h. S9
