All darkness and silence at room 6. 7.30. C ■, the representative from Deerfield, arrives and lights up. 7.35. C , watching, waiting, and beginning to get nervous, thinks " there ' s been some mistake. " 7.40. A musical step heard on the stairs, and F , the fiddler, appears, chucks his violin under the table, and picks out the easiest chair. 7.45. K , the artist, heard under the window yelling for the President. 7.50. C decides to " hunt ' em up. " 7.55. Appears M , the delegate from the onion town (commonly called Danvers) ; also F , the naturalist, bearing under his arm a suspicious-looking perforated tin box, tied with a wrapping twine, which he tenderly sets down in a corner by the fire-place. Following these come the artist and the President. Pres. T : " Why, how long have you fellows been here? " A heavy tramp in the passage, and at precisely 8 o ' clock and 3 minutes C appears with the delinquents, P and L , whom, he explains, he found dis(r«j ' jr )g chemistry; and the President promptly calls the meeting to order. Pres. T : " Now, here ' s something we ' ve got to decide upon right away, that ' s " toot-t-t-t from a baritone just outside the door, and several members start to lay violent hands on the musician. Pres. T (in a voice of thunder) : " Sit down ! We ' ve got to get this dedication out to-night. " All sit except the good representative who turns door-keeper, bracing his back against it to keep out an intruder. M : " I think we ' d better dedicate the book to The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, that sounds kind of good. " 16

P : ■ ' United States of America. " F — ■ — - : " I go in for Grover Cleveland. " L ( from land of wooden nutmegs) : " I won ' t vote for a Democrat. " Pres. T : " Now, — now, — " M : " Say, have you fellows heard about X ' s stealing ice-cream at the President ' s reception ? Well, the boys were hanging around trying to get some, but the old darky kept his eye peeled and told them that they could n ' t have any. ' I ' s too smart for you ' s. ' ' ' X was standing by so quiet and innocent looking that no one suspected him, and. when the darky ' s back was turned, he grabbed a brick of ice-cream as big as a Bible, walked leisurely off, and invited the crowd up to his room to the spread. ' " M : ' • He did n ' t walk off leisurely, he ran like thunder. " Pres. T (rapping violently on table) : " Come, come, fellows ! We ' ve got only a week and a half to get this book out. Now, how about this dedi- cation ? ' ' L : " Here ' s an annual from a college in Texas, it ' s dedicated to athletics. " M : " Oh, say ! There is no foot-ball game with Amherst to-morrow. " F (the naturalist) : " What ' s the matter now ? " M : " O, their " Pres. T : " Now, how is this for a dedication ? — " The qualities rare in a bee that we meet. In the Index never should fail ; Its body should always be little and sweet. And a sting should be left in its tail. ' ' Chorus : " What kind of a dedication do you call that? Put him out! " T : " Well, somebody else do something, then ; I can ' t do all the work. " F (the fiddler) : " Now, here ' s my idea : — " We dedicate devoid of hate To ' 94 so weary. In the belfry high so near the sky, Tiiey lonesome sat and dreary. " L (elbowing M ): " Great Scott ! Is the man crazy. ' " M : " Darnifino. " 17
