18 tltE INbEl. Prom the forty odd men with which we entered, we have diminished until but twenty are left, but of course these are the cream of the class. Our class- mates have left us for various reasons. Some have withdrawn of their own free will, and some from the free will of the Faculty. Some have turned to the educational privileges of other institutions, while others, feeling that they needed two years in which to do one year ' s work, have become discouraged and left. The majority of these have perhaps been of no real loss to the class, though many were fellow s whose presence would have been of honor and value. Years hence, as we retm ' n to our class and society reunions, we shall get to- gether and talk over the good old times we used to have in college, wonder what has become of all our lady friends, tell of our various victoi ' ies and ad- ventures, and live again those dear old days, now so neai ' ly ended. But Classmates, the period is approaching when we must leave our boyish pursuits and ei ter into the great whirlpool of life. A few months only are left in which to make our final preparations for the strife. Each of us has the power to make something of himself, if he only chooses to improve it. Two roads are open to us, one leading to Agi ' iculture and For- tune, and the other to dishonor and destruction. Let us choose the former, so that when our days are ended, it may be said that the world is better for our having lived in it. T.

UR college life is nearly finished, and our final communication to the Index is herewith presented. In looking back over our four short years here, what varied experiences we must recall. We can see again how green we looked and felt, when in the fall of 1886, we fii ' st beheld oui- college ; and we can trace oui- progress through the wearisome Freshman days, along the wicked road of the Sophomore and the lazy one of the Junior, until we have, as Seniors, reached our last stage of college life. In a few short months we shall disappear among the people as Alumni, never probably to meet again as a whole class. Reviewing our course, we recognize how many opportunities we have lost, and how much more we might make of our course if we could begin it again. But the past can only be recalled in our thoughts, while the future lies before us, full of opportunities which we may seize and use for our good or evil. As a class, we might perhaps style ourselves as no better or worse than the average. While we may not have any man among us whose brilliancy will overturn the world, yet we may console ourselves with the thought that neither is there any one of us who is not able, with the training that we have received, to make his mark in the world. We have generally been foremost in the athletic contests in which it has. been our fortune to engage. We were the last class to enjoy the danger and excitement of the cane rush, in which of course we were victorious. Carrying off the rope in our Freshman pull, we have kept up our good record as leaders, even till to-day. The Faculty seems to have got along with us very well on the whole, the only occasion when we have differed, being in regard to our preferring to at- tend a base-ball game instead of a recitation. For that we suffered the severe (?) penalty of " probation, " yet we managed to bear up under this fearful pun- ishment. 2 (17)
