preshiman Nigi b. It is customary for the Freshmen to celebrate the last Friday night of every college 3 ' ear with a class supper and other jollifications; so it was with ' 93, when Freshmen, but everything seemed to work against them. Lieut, and Prex. considered them rather a reck- less class and refused them the use of the $20,000 cannon. To overcome this discourage- ment, they set to work loading shells for the rifles, and as things seemed to run very smoothly, they at last became a little reckless, and one day those horrid Sophomores stole all their cartridges; then, deeming them too little experienced in the use of fire-arms, they took nearly all their guns, leaving about a dozen in the hands of the steadiest men. At last the bell rang, announcing that all examinations were over, and a few Sopho- mores hastened to guard the bell, getting ahead of the Freshmen and fastening the door behind them. Now the Freshmen, finding that they were beaten, spiked the door, but this inconvenienced no one, for pretty soon a Soph, wishing to come down, was let down on the bell rope. The Freshmen, seeing this, got hold of the rope, pulled it down pnd cut it into pieces; but you may now see all these pieces adorning ' 92 ' s rooms. About 9 o ' clock, the Freshmen repaired to the Amherst House to a supper, but as they had no printed menu (on account of expense), we cannot say what they had, except the ice- cream, which they brought up to the Juniors. After the Juniors ' supper, the bonfire was next on the programme, and we can say it was a good one, as the farm furnished the material and teams to draw it with, free. About 2 o ' clock, A. M., some Freshmen of ' 91 tried to reach the bell, but after a desper- ate effort, they succeeded in getting themselves caught in the P. S. K. ' s g3 ' m. Thus ended Freshman Night, and we agree with what Prof. Maynard said to a Junior, next mr)rning: " You had a very quiet night, last night, not disturbing me once. " 112

T[)e oroWniesi --M5 Y?Vs ' Come listen now and you shall hear Of all the Brownies, quaint and queer, The place and mystery of their birth, And their adventures round the earth. First they start, with noble mind. Away to Aggie on missions kind; On walks, and walls, and fences high, They paint figures to catch the eye. That people passing might perceive, In classes ' ninety-one and four they ' d leave. Now to the cannons that must play a part, Thus on the campus they get their start. Then towards the old farm-house nigh. For all their tools swiftly they fly. Then a cannon they try to spike. So the Freshmen can ' t use it Freshman Night; But the vent is large, and the spike is small. And as they try it, it slips from reach of all. Just then the Freshmen appear on the scene. And before it ' s known, the fountain basin ' s seen. Well, so much for all that. For after this little spat. Two years roll peacefully by, Without trouble that anyone can spy; But at the beginning of the fourth. Other Brownies appear on Aggie ' s earth. Fresh from the town of Feeding Hills, And as green as newly medicated pills; Unused to things like the Temple, They tr} ' to wash their hands in the urinal. Well let us not think of faults of this kind. But hope they ' ll improves in body and mind. And in the years that may come to pass. Let them not think everyone is a jackass; Arjd while they smile or praise bestow. And wonder whence ideas flow, The fact should still be kept in mind That people of the knowing kind Will heed the hints or lessons laid In rhymes and pictures thus displayed. Ill
