T v (lid tlu ' chii ' i ' priest require of one Euton, that he .should dechire ;i eertaiii hiw of his own hinguage; to whieh lie answered : " 1 am loved, She is loved, We are loved. " iVnd when the striplings had answered many such questions, the chief priest said unto tlieni, ' • Well done, 3 ' e good and tender shoots; 3 e shall surely dwell in the temple of learning, for verily these are the words of truth and wisdom. " Now when the chief priest had thus spoken, behold, these same Freslnnanites became possessed, of exceeding self-conceit, for great was their pride ; and they gathered themselves together in the tent of one Copeland : and lo, there was no head. Then was one chosen from among them who should preside, and also one who should write down the sayings of the wise, and who was called the scribe. Now wlien they had disposed themselves in their various stations, behold they did greatly work their jaws, and did shoot forth many high-sonnding words, saying that they were no slouches, and would in their time win ever- lasting glory. Now it hapi)ened that tliere was at the temple of learning a custom handed down through the ages, that the Sophomorites and tlio Freshnuinites should " •rush. " And it came to pass, in the still watches of the night, that the Freshmanites clothed themselves for the contest and issued forth upon the campus ; and when they had uttered their war cry and howled lustily, the Sophomorites came out against them. Then did each tribe invoke the aid of the God of Battle. And they did exceedingly hump themselves. But the great and surpassing valor of the Freshmanite prevailed. And when the conflict was brought to a close, the Sophomores gathered themselves up like unto twelve baskets of fragments, and there was among them weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then great wrath taketh pos- session of the conquered tribe, and in time a spirit nourished by the devil cometh u})on them, which caused them to gibe and scoft ' at the words of him who acted as Judge in the contest. And then did the men of the other tribes rub their hands together and smile loudly, and say, ' Verily, these things remind lis of our early days. " He that hath an ear, let hiiu hear, and take heed unto these words. GO

IfcMMKiliESlt- lojl ND it came to pass, in the second year of the reign of one • Levi over the Aggies, that he said unto the people : " Have I not dwelt in this land fonrteen years ? And behold the time draweth nigh that I should depart ; therefore choose ye a man to rule in my stead. " Then were the hearts of the people ex- ceedingly sad. Nevertheless they put a staff in his hand, and he departed into a far country. Then the elders gathered themselves together, and chose one Paul, a Williamite, to rule over the people. Now Paul was a man skilled in all manner of sciences. And he gave new laws unto his subjects, even laws respecting the destruction of prop- erty; and against all manner of wickedness. And he declared, as one having authority, that " whosoever broke these laws should not prosper, but would be sent back in shame to the land of his fathers. " And it came to pass, in the season nigh unto harvest, when the melon and gooseberry were ripened, and the festive notes of the cricket and bullfrog were heard throughout the land, that many striplings from the region round about came to the gates of the temple of learning, and cried Avith a loud voice, " Open unt o us ! " Then answered the chief priest, " Why come ye hither ? and what seek ye ? " Then with one accord they replied, " We seek to be Freshmen. " Then did the chief priest jDnt unto them certain strange questions, to which if they answered well they should come m, but if not they should dwell without the temple forever. And having called upon one Robert, whose surname is derived .from the bearers of the palm, he said unto him, " Repeat to us the table wherewith wine is measured. " And in these words did Robert answer him : " Four gills make one drink ; Two drinks make one drunk ; Four drunks make one flunk. " 59
