Later in the course, the dancing circles have their attractions, and many pleasant hours are spent " tripping the light fantastic .toe. " The result of this is daily brought before our notice. You enter a room and the first thing you see is a worthy couple locked in each others embrace like long lost brothers. A second thought explains the whole affair, and you are gently reminded of those poetic lines, Around her gentle form I draw the magic circle. Except that the her seems to be a minus element. The skating rink proves a source of much enjoyment, and the many pleas- ant hours there spent, skating with Miss Ferguson and other of the fair ones, has proved a means of much pleasure and the cause of a still greater amount of merriment. 70

MMOMMIi AGGIE PASTIMES. j ' Y HE forces of nature work in many mysterious ways, often deviating from the fixed lines through which they are supposed to act. So it is °y qfC with the Aggie student ; the attractions that tend to vary his course J4, are many, a sort of automatic force will be exhibited in one direction, while in another, one of centripital character will be observed, and in still another some other mysterious action is at work. The student often enters upon his course with good, sound resolutions. But ah ! how fickle they prove ! How like the chaff that the wind bloweth away prove these vows when some one of these nomadic forces which sur- round him on every hand commence their ceaseless attractions. First, he is brought under the influence of that chariot load which meanders through this fertile valley on its daily path known as the A. H. S. Soon we see him l n the evening twilight slyly skipping away in a northerly direction, evi- dently intent on something which seems as yet afar off. But the goal is soon reached and there he spends a few pleasant hours with one of those fair dam- sels, returning very early at night with a light heart and a still lighter head. As is customary in all pursuits, others soon fall in line and follow in his footsteps. These visits are kept up through the Winter, and as Spring ap- proaches those fair maidens meet and commune together saying : " We must avail ourselves of this grand privilege, and according to the long prac- ticed custom induce these young lords to aid us in our yearly drama. " The lordies cannot refuse, the plea that they have never had any experience on the stage proves of no avail, and with many associates are soon entrapped and enter upon their work with great zeal. Days and weeks are spent pre- paring for that grand occasion. It is soon given to the public and proves so great a success that it is decided to present it in a neighboring town. But ah, the result ! the result ! The poor victims, with heavy hearts and empty pockets, return with a sound resolution never to be caught in such a trap again. But there are others constantly coming upon the field of action, so that this event is still yearly looked forward to with great expectation. 75
