P (who has been writing) : ' ' How is this for a dedication? " The naturalist, who has been kneeling lovingly over the aforesaid perforated tin box, jumps suddenly up with the exclamation, " By Gracious ! " and looks around with a bewildered expression. All : " What ' s the matter ? What ' s the matter, F ? " F (wildly) : " He ' s gone ! " All : " What ' s gone ? " F : " My rat ! I was going to take him over to the Zoo. Lab. and dissect him to-morrow, — there he goes now! — Whoop ! " The fiddler jumps up, his feet in his chair, and pulls off his coat. P elevates his feet on the table, laughing uproariously ; others charge on the rat. From the melee in the corner : — " There he is ! There he is ! ' " " There under the radiator ! " " Where ' s the bayonet ? " " I ' 11 jab him ! " (Naturalist ' s voice recognized) " Don ' t kill him, don ' t kill him ; catch him alive ! " The rat makes a rush across the room, followed by the crowd, yelling vigor- ously, upsetting two chairs and a table, literature and kerosene oil. " Ara-ra-ra, koko-so-ko. Ah, hitsu-kama ya ! " (Supposed to be a Japanese oath.) " Here ! " " There ! " " In the waste-basket ! " " I ' ve got him! I ' ve got him! — No-o-o, darn him, he ' s got me. Let go! Wow ! ! " " The box, where ' s the box . ' ' " " Here it is. " The rat succumbed to the inevitable, the box was clapped over him, the cover tied down, the naturalist took it carefully under his arm, and the meeting stood adjourned.

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
