Roper. — What associations will ever be brought to mind at the mention of this our genial classmate. That portly form, that smiling countenance, that merry laugh, that ready wit, visions of which rising before our minds in future years, will always be among the brightest recollections of our college days. Hubbardston forms but a small part of the Common- wealth, but in giving birth to Roper she has placed the world under peculiar obligations. The fact of the case is that Roper is a jolly fellow, and will be so remembered by all who know him. We dismiss the subject, hoping that through life he will have just enough of shadow to make the sunshine seem more bright. Saito. — It cannot but be a cause of deep regret to the Mikado that in this time of his greatest tribulation, his chief adviser should be absent in America, obtaining a military education at the M. A. C. We would however, remark that unless he is more loyal to his country than he is to his class and college his presence would be a blessing to China rather than to Japan. An ardent lover of photography, he has discovered some new and original methods of taking pictures, whereby either two plates or none at all may be used at one time. In his Senior year, we have no doubt but that he will follow the example of his illustrious countryman in the class of ' 95, take Hood ' s Sarsaparilla, become cured, and come the converted heathen act on an unsuspecting public. Miguel Salome de los Santos Sanchez Martinez Torres Guido Sastre de Veraud y Haldonado. — Fine specimen of the genus Mexicana. A short, sturdy, handsome plant, distinguished for lots of money, innumerable pipes, red neckties, military prowess, and a Platonic (?) affection for the ladies. Of a somewhat indolent nature, he is little inclined to study, and -looks upon the profs, as a body of men whose sole object in life is to condition him. We would, however, except Prof. Fernald, of. whom he always speaks in the warmest terms. Salome is no mean athlete, and won several points for his class in the indoor meets. An enthusiastic admirer of the drama, he may always be found occupying a prominent seat in the bald-headed row. Subscribes regularly for " Truth, " and is firmly convinced that " living pictures should not be suppressed. " Sellew. — The great and only Sellew, or the man who knows it all, and beside whom Solomon and Caesar would be as pigmies. His gigantic mind has swept the whole range of human knowledge, and stored it up for the benefit of the unenlightened multitude. If there is anything under the sun that you want to know, " ask Sellew. " Outside of his great stock of unreliable facts, Merle Edgar does not cut much ice. As far as the girls are concerned, he exemplifies in a striking manner the adage, " Man wants but little here below, but wants that little long. " He may be consulted at any time, except in the early morning, at No. 17 South College, where he has established a bureau of information.

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. "

Shaw. — Our only local sport. More conspicuous on the athletic field than in the classroom, and the only man in college that can stand it to room with John Marshall Barry. A very religious man, being one of the pillars of the South Amherst Church. His bump of veneration is highly devel- oped, and he is a " gude one " with the " kyards. " One of the men who did great work in our class struggles with ' 97. Belongs to the Bent Over Bicycle Club, of which Pelham Jones is Secretary. Was wounded on the plains of Trigonometry, made a prisoner in the camp of the mathemati- cian (?) from West Point, and rescued only by a spirited assault on the part of his classmates. Shultis. — " Tis but a step from the sublime to the ridiculous. " The town of Medford is noted for its rum, and is also the home of our beloved class- mate Shultis, the only man in the class who has not an enemy in college. The mascot of the foot-ball and base-ball teams, he supports them not only with his presence but with his shekels. It is a mystery to us how a man can go about college with such a smiling face and pleasing manner and yet room with Capt. Colby. Of such stuff were the Christian martyrs made. It is always a pleasure to meet our friend. He is, as he ever will be, dear to the hearts of all who know him. Tsuda. — A man of quiet and gentle mien, but of whom it may well be said that still waters run deep. He has lately become greatly interested in the disturbances in the East and the rapidly disappearing Chinamen. He fought bravely as a private in the rear ranks of the Washburne Six, and in consequence of gallant service was made corporal in the battalion in his Junior year. Has never taken Hood ' s Sarsaparilla, but has confined himself to Johnson ' s Anodyne Liniment, Castor Oil, and Mrs. W ' inslow ' s Soothing Syrup, which acts as a balm rather than an irritant. As the phrenologist would say, his bump for the appreciation of practical jokes is as yet undeveloped. Washburn. — Hark! ' tis the mournful strains of " The Cat Came Back, " accompanied by the plinkity plunk of Washburn ' s banjo. Who is Washburn ? And his classmates cry out as one, " First in war, first in peace, first in the hearts of ' 96. " The king can stamp a guinea crown, A man ' s a man for a ' that. Washburn spells not his name with an e, But a man ' s a man for a ' that and a ' that. Maine gave to the nation Blaine ; to the Class of Ninety-six, Washburn- What Blaine was to the nation, Washburn is to the Class of Ninety-six. can simply say with Longfellow : — " Lives of great men all remind us And departing leave behind us We can make ur lives sublime, Foot-prints on the sands of time. " 112 Words fail us, and we
