Stolen Thunder. 1 I T HERE is a youth whose eyes and hair -L Are of a darkish hue, Whose face was always bland and bare, Till after studious thought and care, A gen tle moustache grew. In the seclusion of his room He studies night and day; His modest features ne ' er assume Ecstatic joy or dreary gloom, Nor arrogance display. His time-piece on his table lies: With measured promptitude, Each moment ' s duties he descries, And Time ' s demands at once supplies, In steady working mood. His task it is the bell to ring, To call the classes in; Upon the bell-rope doth he cling, Before ' tis time the bell to swing, And at the dot begin. And as the bell rings out its cbimes, Then tolls its steady stroke, Then rings again its half-way rhymes, Then tolls along, and lastly mimes Rush of a rapid brook. It seems the manner to resound Of him who rings the bell; To place in order duties found, And only in its proper round Upon each one to dwell. (91)

Historical Reminiscence. 0UR special detective has presented us with the following, which he is said to have clipped from historic faculty records during his re- cent investigation of the most interesting and instructive proceedings of that most highly honored board. April — , Whereas, It is generally understood and acknowledged that the farmer is a brute, and by his profession wholly and utterly incapable of enjoying or in the slightest degree appreciating those pleasures of life which are known among men as social, and Whereas, In times past efforts have been made which, if continued, are likely to dangerously alter public sentiment in this respect. Resolved, That WE, the undersigned members of on this day of April of the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and do hereby denounce and abolish from this time forth and forever all efforts to improve in any way shape or manner, by any means whatsoever, the social life and privileges of the students of the Mas- sachusetts Agricultural College; and, further, Resolve, That as an aid to the above humane sentiment, we throw open the gateway which leads to the slums of the street. And be it further Resolved, That in so doing we are not only saving OURSELVES much needless trouble and anxiety for our respected and beloved proteges, but are doing an act worthy of gentlemen of our standing and pulling wool over the eyes of the public in general. Signed, Members of Notice. — We are happy to announce that the sentiment expressed in the above has to some slight degree been modified during recent years, but there is still further opportunity for improvement in this direction.— Ed. (90)
