" S once again we gaze on the " all-fleeting hands of time, " and perceive that a whole 3 ' ear of college life has passed away from us, we cannot but be im- pressed with the idea that we are no longer the troublesome Freshmen of the previous year, but rather the high-minded and popular class who take pleasure in the name of Sophomores. The sensations which we endured on arriving at college last September, dif- fered materially, of course, from those that we experienced a year ago, in being- more like those of acclamation and usefulness than of mingled fear and green- ness. There was also a feeling of sadness caused by the absence of many faces which we were accustomed to see about the buildings. x ' mong them were sev- eral of those who entered the battle with us, who have dropped out to pursue other courses in life; and one, the life of us all, the one to whom we all looked when brain and leadership were required, has left this mortal state of trial and vicissitude and no longer stands on this side of eternity. Tne loss of these, how- ever, although keenly felt, is partially remedied by the entrance into our ranks, of five new men of whom any class might well be proud. In athletics we have done but fairly well. We ha e supplied quite a num- ber of men for the foot-ball team, both last year and this.

knowledge we gained last year, we are determined to get a great deal more in the same length of time henceforth. The rope-pull, that event to which the whole college looks forward with in- terest, has fallen through, owing to a slight disagreement as to the number of men to pull. As to rushes, we have had but two with the Freshmen, which, although not considered wholly decisive by them, were very satisfactory to us. Classmates, let us fasten the bonds of friendship still tighter, and shoulder to shoulder faithfully attend to the duties laid out for us in the next three years, trusting that our course will not be interrupted in the future by temporary sus- pension, and remembering that greatness and a high position in this world is for him only who works earnestly for it. c. 25
