A SCARE-CROW. Whereas on the 17th of Oct. inst., the ro om in the Museum building was defiled by somie member of my class, and whereas on the 18th inst., sundry depredations were committed, which might be construed as an insult to a college ofBcer, I hereby truthfully affirm I did not aid, abet, assist, or com- mit either of the above acts, and that I heartily disapprove of such conduct. Signed by entire class of ' 83. We are begged to announce that Mr. Kingman has a valuable lecture on hygiene, consisting of facts selected from his own experience, together with choice selections from valuable scientific works, which he wishes to dispose of a,t a reasonable rate. It is rumored that Nourse is still diligently in search of his dress coat. Any information concerning the same will be gratefully rece.ved. It is reported " officially " that Howe has contracted with a Texas cattle driver, to furnish leather to cover those plantations wherein resideth his understanding. Last term Kinney and Spalding were obliged to return to the study of mortar drill, and it was with feelings of pity that the Sophs, watched them laboriously shoveling the material ofl: their nearly ruined carpet, while Kin- ney slowly muttered words of vengeance upon the perpetrator of such a deed . Visit Bagley ' s smoking emporium ; choice smoking materials constantly on hand and to loan. Messrs. Kinney and Perkins have lately opened a store at 5 N. C, where a first-class assortment of old clothes, military uniforms, and decidedly old furniture, may be purchased at advanced prices. These gentlemen gratuit- ously offer their services at any water-melon, grape, cake, or apple soiree, where talent, good looks, and mustaches are appreciated. 90

ALUMNI. fT seems sti ' ange to be called on as Alnmni to contribute to the Index. There was a time not long ago with many of us, when pil we contributed to the Index personally, and directly through our @)% own participation of the life of which this publication is a reflex. That time has passed for us. No more do we have our names printed twenty or moi ' e times, as members of our class, secret and literary society, grub-club, military department, etc., or hyphenated in the " Grrinds, " or nicknamed in the personal references. No more for us the call to prayers, or recitation, no more trips " over the bridge to the Hash-house, " no more the pomp and glorious circumstance of mili- tary evolution, no more class work, and no more fun, anyway. For we are staid and sober citizens, we are : and yvhj should we be asked to contribute to the Index ? Because the boys at alma mater want to hear from us. Because they need sound encouragement and advice to lighten up the w eary hours of college life. Because the editors kno " v w e are the ones whose words will give tone and soliditj to the an- nual Junior production. Hence we write. There is little to write about, but we write just the same. We might go on to shed a few word-tears on the subject of our regrets at leaving college to battle alone with life ' s storna, as it were ; but we refrain from harrowing up the feeling of our gentle readers. We are not sorry that we have left college, but we are glad we graduated from it. Glad that we spent four years at the M. A. C. Glad of that, but not sorry that we are now on life ' s highway, as men, traveling towards the future, with the lessons of the past be- hind us, and the prize for well-doing in front. Think of life, you who are yet in college, as a movement towards an end. The movement may be forward or backward as you choose the road, but the end will come just the same in either case. Think then as to what end you wish to reach, and make your college life a preparation for the journey. Make your college course benefit you 92
