Moore. — If we have one thing more than another to be thankful for, it is that Moore, in his great wisdom, decided to become a student at the M. A. C. Our greatest wonder is and always has been that a man possessing such eminent abilities should have chosen this modest institution in preference to one of our larger universities. He is, in truth, " hiding his light under a bushel, " but he displays his trinkets to the world. His highest aspira- tion is to become quarter back on the ' Varsity eleven, the only objection to him being that the ball would be liable to go between his legs. He is a good player on the typewriter, and in a game of talk always holds a stiff hand. With Kinney and Pentecost, he completes a trio of noble men of whom Worcester may well be proud. Nichols. — Who was the god of war? Nichols! Who passed the beans? Nichols ! Who gave utterance to that impressive advice, " Go pay your bills " ? Nichols ! Who is First Sergeant of Co. B. ? Robert P. Nichols ! Who helped save the honor of the class in foot-ball and base-ball ? It was Nichols ! Who was Billy Brooks ' s right-hand man for two long years ? Nichols ! Who boarded all summer with Hayward and came out alive ? Nichols ! Who is the diamond in the rough ? Nichols ! Who in the class can cry out with Caesar, " I came, I saw, I conquered " ? Nichols Here have we condensed in a few words the life and character of one of our best and brightest men. Nutting. — One whom nature intended for a merchant and for one of the solid men of Leominster. His principal avocation is bi-weekly mashing, as he holds a high position in the esteem of the local fair sex, and has a slight tendency towards championship tennis. Often fou nd engaged in his favorite occupation of making a noise. Always noted for being in his position on the foot-ball team and for carrying a watch which is known to the North Amherst beauties as keeping correct time. Taking all in all, he is a model young man, and attends all religious meetings, and we think he derives full benefit, for he always stays late. P. S. — But like many another young man who has sown wild oats in his youth, we venture to predict that Charlie will see the follies of his ways, and will eventually become a loyal citizen and do credit to his class and Alma Mater. Pentecost. — " Penty " is known to all as the man with the funny laugh. To hear him is to listen to the voice of the thunder. Although somewhat of a religious man, he is serving his apprenticeship for his future occupation by tending the fires in South College. Judging from his remarks, we would say that he comes from Worcester and that his occupation up to date has been running a milk cart. He is somewhat of a joker in his way; and has the advantage of always having at least one man to appreciate his jokes. Next to Prof. Brooks he has the largest stock of useless in- formation of any man around college, and he is nothing if not critical. We are informed that he intends entering the poultry business and has a ready field awaiting him. 109

Kinney. — This is a long subject, and we hesitate before so great a task as undertaking to do it justice in the short space allowed us. Whole volumes might be written, and even then our task would be incomplete. He is a dead game sport from Tatnuck, and says that he cuts lots of ice with the girls in that vicinity ; but we would add that as a story teller he is second to none not excepting Baron Munchausen. We wish we could impart an adequate conception of his towering form, that noble and firmly set head, crowned with its mass of flaxen hair parted in the middle, that Roman nose, and that long silky moustache. As Drum Major of the battalion, he is the observed of all observers. His comprehensive knowledge of everything together with his prowess in athletics, has given him the high position which he holds in our esteem. Kramer. — Albin Maximillian Kramer, alias " Baron Von Woodenhead, ' ' alias " Dutchy, " the Clinton phenomenon. Since the moment of his arrival, the Baron has been a marked man. A stranger in a strange land, he has been the victim of innumerable practical jokes. He is an authority on all scientific subjects, especially Botany and Foot-ball, and at onetime aspired to become assistant instructor in German ; in fact he is a regular walking Encyclopedia Germanica. He is very careful with whom he associates, being the only non-society man in the class, even refusing to join the Y. M. C. A. until he had ascertained the character of its members. We understand that he is expecting to be called home to Germany at any time to take a seat in the Reichstag. Leamy. — P. A. -P. A. — Rah, rah — Rah, rah etc. Of men like Pat it may be truly said " the gods made but one, then broke the mould. " As an orator, statesman, politician, pugilist, base-ballist, " nigger minstrel, " Prof, bluffer, and an all round sport, he stands pre-eminent. In con- junction with our friend from Lancaster, he has invaded the realms of East St. and captured its choicest jewel. But leaving all joking aside, Leamy is a man of whom we all are proud. A loyal class man, a genial companion, a true friend, and in fact a man in every sense of the word. May his shadow never be less. Marshall. — Jim is one- whom the class is proud of as a man, a student, and an athlete. A sincere friend, an open enemy, and a loyal classmate, he commands the respect and esteem of all. That he stands well in his class is shown by the fact that he escaped being conditioned by " Courty. " As an athlete he is a veritable find. He is little, but oh my ! To him more than to. any other one man is due the position which our class holds in athletics. With all his good qualities, he has, however, one little failing, a weakness for the " female sex. " He may frequently be seen in company with a classmate promenading the more retired and shady streets of Amherst, with a " chip " not exactly on his shoulder but near it. Jim is young yet, and we expect that when he marries that little Lancaster girl he will settle down on a farm to raise 1 jig cabbages to sell to Kramer for sauerkraut for his Clinton Bier Garten. 1 08

Poole, E Hi2.l1 among- the names of New Bedford ' s illustrious sons will be found that of E. W. Poole, the well-known illustrator of that immortal publication, the ' 96 Index. A man whom the world seems always to have used well, as he is always in a happy frame of mind, which probably accounts for his being more or less of a musician. He is supposed to have spent much of his early life in the pursuit of the nimble whale, and failing to make a capture it is rumored that his father would then take a hand at the whaling. He spends most of his spare time in attending to his extensive correspondence, but seems to have miss(ed) his vocation. With all his faults we love him still. Poole, I. C. — With him as with the conjurer, now you see him and now you don ' t, but it is I. C. all the time. Without him Prof. Warner ' s stock of jokes would have been sadly diminished. Much smaller in stature than he is in his own estimation, it is to be hoped that in time he will grow and become able to boss his older brother around and to wear his old clothes, watches, etc. It may be well to close this short subject with these words : Small as he is, he is a giant in intellect, and is one of those few men who never put off till to-morrow what can be done to-day. Rawson. — Herbert Warren Rawson, of Arlington, the gardener, seedsman, and well-known market . He also has attained no little fame as a writer, being the author of that well-known book, " How I Became Popular. " Ferdinand Ward was called the Young Napoleon of Finance, Wm. McKinley is called the Napoleon of Protection, Herbert Warren Rawson is known as the Napoleon of Popularity. As Alexander the Great wept for more worlds to conquer, so Rawson weeps for more hearts to win. What Paganini was on the violin, Rawson is on the banjo. What David the sweet singer of Israel was to the Israelites, Rawson is to all who come within the range of his melodious voice. Who led the victorious legions of Ninety-six in that memorable conflict on the Plains of Trigonometry against the mathematical genius (?) from West Point, and defeated him without the loss of a single man ? It was Rawson. Read. — " Fweddie. " This is a small subject, but with all, an important one. With Portia we would exclaim, " How far that little candle throws its light ! " It is a marvel to all that in so small a compass can be contained so great an intellect and so many virtues. As in Nichols we have the god of war, so in " Pinkey " we have the god of love. " Love rules the camp, the court, the grove, And men below and saints above ; For love is heaven, and heaven is love. "
