Practical .ti Uticss. Vtv HE Class of ' 95, visiting the market gardens and other places of interest in [ the suburbs of Boston, were royally entertained at the house of one of the Trustees of the College. At the end of the banquet the notice, " Three mi7mtes to catch the train, ' ' was received, and the class adjourned some- what hastily as follows ; — " Three minutes to catch the train in, " Cried the trustee, cried the women, Cried we all with terror stricken ; Cried and sprang up from the table. Like unto the arrow pointed. That from bow is swift directed ; Like unto the nimble full-back When the ball is passed unto him. Swift we sprang out through the doorway, With our grips and coat tails flying, With umbrellas left behind us, With a ten-course dinner in us. Stopped outside upon the gravel. Stopped and gave a sturdy class-yell. Then away to where the railroad Stretches out his serpent fingers. And the hors of iron standing Ready to be off and going, Down the long hillside we thundered. Thundered on and stopped for nothing. As the storm comes down the valley. As the herds of deer and bison Rush across the mountain passes. So we rushed and thundered onward. Swifter than the blazing comet, Swifter than the eagle ' s winging, 85

When the prey is down beneath him, Was our course, held straightway onward. Shrank the women, frightened, backwards, Shrank the children, shrank the maidens, As, our headlong course pursuing, Down we sped with nought retarding. Frightened citizens on the corners Stopped, aghast, and looked upon us ; Stopped, then turned away, affrighted. Thinking we had lost our senses. Thinking we had come from Danvers, Just escaped from some asylum, Stopped and called for the policeman. But we got there just in time to Catch the train for Woodlawn Station. Thus the quiet town of Newton Was invaded by the Juniors, Was invaded, then she trembled, But ' twas naught to make her tremble. But not all the gallant Juniors Came unto the railroad station. Some there were who stopped to tarry, Some the ice-cream stopped to finish ; These were left of course behind us. Left within old, quiet Newton. Then we came on back to " Aggie, " Back upon the iron roadway, Back to work and daily routine. But while sands of time are flowing Ne ' er shall that run be forgotten. And we ne ' er shall see man running. Running to the railroad station, Rushing o n to make connection, But that we will think of Newton ; Think of trustee, think of women. Think of running to the station. In the glancing sun of Autumn, In the suburbs of old Boston, In the quiet town of Newton. 86
