- )f I T last we have crossed the stream that divides our college course and have A begun to wend our way up that rugged bank, whose path is crowded with " T ajC knowledge, which we must bravely shoulder and retain, in order to J- i. gain the goal for which we are striving. What cares, what joys have been undergone none but those who have passed through can tell ; yet because her members are bound in silken ties of friendship, instead of shackles of wrong- doing, let no one think she lacks in spirit ; the same true mettle has been shown in the rush, on the ball field, and in the cremation of ' 85, as well as in the class- room. In short, she can say that the talents entrusted to her care have been so well used, that, when another year rolls round, bringing senior dignities and se- nior privileges, she will be ready to receive them. We greet our new President and admire the zeal with which he has begun his work, the effects of which, we feel in the magnanimity of our duties, for our time is completely occupied, and not only with college duties, but other avocations which necessarily devolve upon a Junior. A great change has been made in our college curriculum, which enables a stu- dent to study the languages instead of agriculture ; but so fully is our time oc- cupied, that we have not had the opportunity to grind out that ever-to-be-adored but soon forgotten " Dutch, " which many of us wish for in preference to agri- culture.

As we hurry on toward the culmination of our college life, we realize that the great boom about Senior year has at last become a stern reality. It is, however, a most important period. Like the keystone of an arch, it binds together for- mer work, giving strength and permanence. Without it, much of one ' s college training is lost. Isolated facts may be learned, but unless there is time in which they can be combined, practically applied, and seen in their different relations, they are but faintly impressed upon the memory, and much that is of true value is never realized. We have ever looked forward to graduation day as the consummation of our happiness. But as the time approaches, as the twilight of student-life draws near, and golden opportunities like the rays from the setting sun go down in the horizon of our career, we realize that the pleasantest part of our life is rapidly passing away, and soon will be an enjoyment of the past, living in the memory alone. But, as with the mind ' s eye we penetrate the mists of the future, there floats before our vision pictures of air castles, whose gilded spires and glittering domes seem to reach beyond the world of reality. Earnestly do we hope that the part we have j)layed in the field of college ac- tion, may prove the foundation of a future success which fancy now pictures upon the imagination. J. 15

mammm our " originals " will appear and astonish the Freshmen next term. No doubt they will astonish the Freshmen, but they need no forerunner, they will speak for themselves, and the wisdom and truth which every line will replete in, will make itself manifest in years to come, and when by chance some stray manu- script is dug out of an old garret, it will be seen to refer directly to the truths expounded in eighty-five ' s originals.
