As HRC l:LllLlV6 Will See Them.
HE future of the Class of '98 is to us a sealed book. For the time it must
remain such. Yet looking out into the vast unknown we may be able to
divine some indications of the fate in store for them. Our prophetic vision
'nay see beyond the dark clouds that envelop us. Through some rift we may
be able to catch a glimpse of the glories and honors awaiting them.
Prophecies are usually associated with dark-browecl gypsies, burning cal-
drons, weird caves and fantastic lights, All visions of the future that are
prophetic seem to originate from some such source. And yet this prophet has
no such surroundings. No dark, mysterious cave, with writhing serpents and
solemn-eyed owls is the place of his abode. No weird incantations, no witches'
mixtures, have assisted in his divination. No charms have laid bare to him the
dark mysteries of the future. The silent witchery of the night has not sharpened
his prophetic power. No communings with His Satanic Majesty have given
him access to the great unknown. Nor have the angels of darkness contrived
to render him aid. But under the most ordinary unprophetic surroundings,
influenced by no power that is commonly attributed to the delineators of the
future were the prophecies made.
Above smiled the broad, blue heaven, below lay the beautiful green earth,
the lofty mountains towered high into the air, the birds were singing sweetly
in the blossoming trees, the warm spring sunshine was over all, and nowhere
was there indication of those hideous accessories to prophesying. But the
prophet, though desirous of any associations that will make clearer his prophetic
vision, has no desire for aid from the powers of darkness. The beauties of
nature and the companionship of man are too much admired by him for him to
secret himself in some dark, mysterious cavern in order to learn the mysteries
of the future. Aided by the bright sunshine, looking out into the dim unknown,
he sees the mist of the future rolled away, and to him comes a vision of the
men of '98, when the years at college have long been added to the vague, irre-
vocable past. H'
Beginning with our " Roll-call," Adams, the class comes trooping by.
" Jack," shy and bashful, will always endeavor to shun the fair SGX. But there
will, one day, come to him, when he leasts expects, an arrow from the bow of
Cupid, driven with unerring aim, and our misogynist will be transformed into
the most obedient, hen-peeked -P His electrical ability and fondness for
catenary curves will enable him at some future day to succeed in his highest
ambition g namely, to reach the head of the electrical department in Lynchburg.
They say civil engineering holds many promises for the future. Behold a
future engineer, Barnett, surveyor of the long promised railroad from Christians-
burg to Blacksburg. This will be the stepping-stone to higher things, and his
future, as I see it in my vision, will be as free from care and trouble as the road-
bed which he surveys will be free from obstacles. His aims run in another
direction, too. Who would have thought that our "Despot" was journal-
istically inclined? But he is, and to his other honors will be added that of
editor of The Radford Advance, an organ supporting woman suffrage and the
Baskervill, who did not succeed in sending any one to " regions unknown "
while acting as the physician's assistant, will make this his one aim in life.
Beware of the " Black Pills " and physic of any sort which he shall offer you.
He will endeavor to do his utmost for the recovery of those who are rash enough
to commit themselves to his care, but he will at that time have a very weighty
matter under consideration, making him oblivious to the needs of his patients.
Better for them in the end, perhaps.
Another civil engineer appears, but he combines with his engineering so
many other things that my vision is blurred, slightly. But, first, I see him
leading to the altar the fair damsel who years before became the object of his
youthful affections. Perhaps this is the highest ambition of his life. But I
see him assisting Barnett in that wonderful survey, then his aspirations mount-
ing higher, he spans the historic James with noble specimens of his designs.
His ambition not yet satisfied, he seeks " other fields to conquer," and from the
masterly hands of Burruss, the great civil engineer, We have one of the most
celebrated novels of modern- times. Still desiring to mount higher, he accepts
the chair of civil engineering at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and then-
sinks into oblivion.
Bush and " Brownie," whose lives have been so closely connected during
their Senior year, start life's career together. For some years they will be
fixtures in the chemical laboratory at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Then the
pension appropriation being exhausted, they will be compelled to withdraw.
Bush will once more assume the office of steward for the college mess, where he
will feed future Seniors on " growly U and " strap." His favorite pastime will be
relating to future students of the times when he was inspector of the First
" Brownie's " life will be more successful. He becomes chief chemist for
the Assawannan Zinc and Iron Works, at Hayseedville. Here he is for a number
of years successful, but the ruling passion of his race is strong in him, and the
desire to accumulate the " filthy lucre " in a more rapid manner at last asserted
itself. He opens a pharmacy, but though he is fairly successful, he is not yet in
his element. Something is calling him, and, at last, unable longer to resist, he
changes his pharmacy to a second-hand clothing establishment, and-at last is
Another one who fain would cure all the " ills that flesh is heir to " passes
before my vision. And should he be as well thought of by other people as a
physician as he does of himself, I see for him a glorious future. Covington's
doctoring may not bring his patients to the grave-yard, but the prophet, who
knows all things, is wise enough to consult some other physician.
Another electrician passes before my vision. But with Danforth electricity
is bu: a secondary matter. He thirsts for military fame. The important posi-
tion which he held in the corps of cadets during his college career, and the arduous
duties attached to it, prevented his enlisting in the war with Spain, but, should he
have another opportunity, he will, doubtless, distinguish himself. Wliile await-
ing this he will use this knowledge of electricity in superintending the street lights
of the city of Richmond.
The Class of ,98 will furnish to the world many chemists. Another one
comes within my vision. Frazier, who adds to his desire to become a chemist a
thirst for musical glory. As a chemist he will succeed to a certain extent, but
through a rift I see him in another sphere, one in which he will become famous.
I see him before the footlights, acting with the same enthusiasm and enjoyment
as he did in the Thespians of long ago. A successful comic actor has he become,
winning smiles and iiowers from the fair sex, and plaudits from every one.
Now comes riding by a man whose soul is in his horse. No need to mention
his name, for every one knows it is Ferneyhough. He has, and always will have,
but two ideas, his horse and the fair maidens, and his horse comes first. He
thinks he will be a veterinarian, but he won't. I see him as one of two things, a
horse jockey or a horse trader. He may probably combine the two. As a horse
trader he possesses two qualities conducive to success, a large amount of brass
and a capacity for hoodwinking others. Should he continue to exercise these
qualities his life in this line will be successful. He may marry, if by any possibility
he can get his horse long enough off his mind, but the woman who consents to
share his equestrian love must either know how to keep silent or talk horse.
Graham, the first mechanical engineer before my vision, has a brilliant future
before him. As a designer he will achieve success. Everywhere he will be
recognized as authority upon mechanics. His fame will be obtained by designing
an engine to make the trip to the moon. After that, he will be content to rest on
his honors, satisfied in knowing that he has accomplished that which never mortal
man has been able to do before. His income will be in keeping with the notoriety
which his engine will bring him.
Guerrant, poor fellow, has the warmest sympathy of the prophet. For him
there seems to be no future, because he who is condemned to a life in Blacksburg
can not be said to have a future, But this is what the vision tells. He will con-
tinue to run the creamery, supplying the Faculty with rich, sweet milk and cream.
There is one event in store for him, but the happiness connected with it is doubt-
ful. The indications are that he will be mated to one of the rustic beauties of the
mountains. The prophet wishes him all happiness, but can not predict for him
that ideal happiness which such a union should bring.
Qur man of the " ifs," Haig, might have a successful future were it not for
his " ifs." Through all his future runs the same thing, everything is clouded
with " buts." Yet, as an engineer, running Graham's engine to the moon, he
may reach something after all, even though it is only the moon. Perhaps, by
the time he returns from there he may have succeeded in dropping his " ifs and
butsf, If he has, and wishes to know his future, he may do so by seeing the
And now comes one of our distinguished men, Benjamin Harrison. Should
his future be as brilliant and should he attain to such high honors as did he
whose name he bears, there are some who would think he has nothing more to
desire. But the aspirations of our " Ben i' are not of a political nature. He will
be content to follow the profession of a mechanical engineer, satisfied with the
honors which this will bring him. Cf more importance to him than the honors
are the finances. Should he continue to cultivate certain traits, he may have a
fair share of this world's goods, yet the prophet will not vouch for it. The vision
is not distinct at this point. I
Another civil engineer, and what will the future bring to him P Sad it is
that my vision does not bring me a brighter future for Paul. But for him the
Fates have in store no rich treasures of honor and gold. His generosity will
always be greater than his pocket-book. He, too, will assist in making the sur-
vey for the Christiansburg and Blacksburg Railroad. This will be a beginning,
and he will, probably, rise, but very slowly. Though not wealthy nor famous,
save as a stamp-collector, he will be happy. He will experience for a time the
delightful sensation of " love in a cottage," but his better half will, one day, fall
heiress to a small fortune, and then life will be easier.
Another mechanical engineer, and one whose ambition runs high. For a
number of years his name will be on the college pension list. He will become a
fixture. Then, his ambition reaching higher, and desiring renown, he will take
his knowledge of mechanical engineering into the world, causing it to stand in
amazement and astonishment at the wonders which he shall invent. But his
ambition is still 1,ll'1S?l'ElS1ClCCl. One thing yet he desires, and at last he obtains it,
the chair of mechanical engineering at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Wlien
this is obtained, his future is assured, and johnson will devote his time to explain-
ing that the "projection of the intersection is the intersection of the projection."
Our electrical genius, " Bro." jones, will, in time, equal, if not surpass, our
wonderful Wizarcl. He will delve deep into the mysteries of electricity, and will
make many valuable experiments. He will search for two things. Une, an elec-
trical apparatus capable of doing a man's thinking, and some means by which
electricity may be used for renewing youth. He will marry early in life, if possible,
buthis wife will live in constant fear of death from some of the many electrical con-
trivances which he will possess.
Again, my vision shows to me two whose lives are closely connected. So
necessary have they become to one another"s happiness that their future would be
nothing to them were they compelled to embark alone upon the sea of life. So,
sharing each others joys and sorrows, McBryde and Cannon travel slowly down
the river of time. It is plainly seen that McBryde,s one element is society. I
see him the leader of the fashionable set in some-unknown city, and Cannon will
be-led. He will be content to follow in the footsteps of his leader, knowing that
through the intricate mazes of society's whirl he will be safely conducted. So
Now comes " Culpeper's " rival, McNiel. His life will be spent in Blacks-
burg, where he will have charge of the sewerage system of the town. He will be
sued for breach of promise by a maiden of uncertain age, who has bestowed upon
him her youthful Q?j affections. But the reputation which he gained while at
Virginia Polytechnic Institute will stand him in good stead. And when he has
" shuffled off this mortal coil," he will be refused admittance into the kingdom of
His Satanic Majesty, because His Majesty knows that he, like Culpeper, will 4' lie
himself nine times out of Hades," so it will be useless to let him in when he first
One of our celebrities next passes in review. " Dr. Mitchell," noted for his
eccentricity and his good humor, will, the prophet fears, come to some bad end.
But since he will have such a responsible position, it is to be hoped he will con-
tinue sane, at least. In my vision he appears as engineer on that great road
which will be laid between Blacksburg and Christiansburg. His train will never
be behind time, and the mail will reach Blacksburg on the day which it was
intended that it should. His passengers needlnot fear him to be a crazy
Palmer will enter for a time upon his chosen profession, a mechanical
engineer. His future reputation will rest upon the fact that he is an earnest
follower of Izaak Vlfalton. Happiest will he be when sitting by some babbling
stream with a trout line in his hands. He will be connected with some great
locomotive works in the far North, but will finally return to the Virginia Poly-
technic Institute as assistant to Johnson.
The good man of our Class is the next whom the vision shows me, another
celebrity, too, " Dr. Perry." What do I see for him ? His life will be spent in
leading others in the " straight and narrow path." He will not become rich in
things of the world, 'because he is not worldly inclined, but his reward shall,
nevertheless, be great. He will probably be a Prohibition candidate for Con-
A man of rural talents, who has had experience in taking care of " Apple
Seed's " orchard and green-house, is Harvey Price. So well has he done this we
may know the farm which he shall own will be a model one. He will grow
peaches, plums and pears, for the bS11Ci:1iQ of the Class of '98, Throughout the
State will he be recognized as authority on the San Jose scale. His life will be
filled with the joys and cares of country life, and his friends will always be welcome
to his farm on New River.
Another chemist, and a Painter, too. If he combines the profession and the
trade, his life will not be the most successful of his class. The indications are
that he will be more successful at the latter, for chemistry does not appear to be
his vocation. His future life will be spent in decorating the houses of the " four
hundred " in the swell city of Blacksburg. But the gods have in store for him
one gift that will render him famous forever. Behold in him one of the future
mayors of that great city which he helped to beautify.
Another chemist, but my vision does not see him in the chemical laboratory.
Three years in one at Virginia Polytechnic Institute were sufficient for Reid, and
he turned to other labors. His fondness for the sea asserts itself, and his highest
aim is to be first mate on one of the large sea-going steamers hailing from Norfolk.
This he will accomplish by the time he is fifty, and seven years after his ship will
be blown up by a submarine mine. Until then, he will spend his time in seeking
to discover some method by which he can live without work.
Smith will not follow his intended profession of a mechanical engineer. The
work connected with it is not congenial to him. But he need not fear, he has a
future. His ferreting instincts will decide that, and his training at Blacksburg
gave him good training for the private detective service. A rival of Pinkerton
himself will be this member of '98, His fame will be due to his discovery of the
man who committed the sole act of hazing at Virginia Polytechnic Institute in
the year 2000. This will be his greatest case.
Taylor, D. M., will have a brilliant future, except that he will be disappointed
in the one great aim of his life. Honor and wealth willbe his, but he will meet
with a disappointment that will have its effect all through his after life, making
his honors count for nothing. The fair maid whom he adores, the idol of his
affections, will prove false to him, and hisnsuccessful rival will be a red-headed
man. His faith in woman will be destroyed. But at last the high position which
he shall hold, and the many honors accompanying it, makes it necessary for him
to have a help-mate, and he chooses one who is wealthy, " fair, fat and forty," for
service, not for love.
The other Taylor has, as my vision sees it, a future still more brilliant. In
honor and wealth, perhaps, he will not be greater, but his " affaire du coeuri" will
be fraught with more happiness. He and the " Wiseman " will open' an office
together, the one dispensing aid to suffering humanity in the form of medicines,
the other using his legal knowledge to get them out of difficulty. A physician
of no mean ability will this Taylor be, winning fame, and honor, and blessings at
every turn in life. Throughout the land shall his wonderful cures be published,
and these shall be to him a monument that shall stand through the ages to come.
Wearied with the faithful duties of many years, he retires from public life, seeking
a much-needed rest in the peaceful enjoyment of a happy home.
A gentleman of travel my vision shows to me, also. Waring will wander
through foreign lands, by the side of rivers which mortal man has never crossed,
through pathless forests and unknown plains. His life shall be one of pleasure, and
few of the troubles so common to us mortals shall beset him. After many years of
wandering in foreign lands he shall return to his native country to find himself
famous, the lion of the hour.
But now the vision begins to grow dim. Almost it has passed from me. Yet
by its waning light I behold the future of the two last of the men of '98, One of
them, Whitehurst, a great electrician, will aim to be, but a few years' trial at Vir-
ginia Polytechnic Institute will convince him that his forte is not electricity, and
he will seek for other things. So disturbed does the vision appear to be after
this, that I think he must develop into a " jack-at-all-trades," comprising every-
thing from a book-agent to a socialistic reformer. The last will probably bring
him notoriety, if not fame, and will be the most congenial occupation in which he
may engage. Through all his life runs the same conscientiousness which char-
acterized him when Officer-of-the-Day at Virginia Polytechnic Institute, so his
work will always be thorough.
Quickly the vision is passing away, so quickly that the phophet fears he shall
not be able to see the future of the 'K Wise man " of the class. But, looking
quickly, by the fading light he can see him the legal adviser of many men, assist-
ing them out of the many difhculties which are apt to surround them. The first
opportunity he has of showing to an expectant world his eloquence will be in a
divorce case, but future ages must tell you if he was successful. From law to
politics is only a short step, and now our " Wise man " is in his element. He will
win-. Ah, the vision has passed, its brightness has faded away, all is dark and
vague. As, in its brightness and splendor, it has shown to the prophet the future
of the men of '98, so has he recorded it. But the vision has passed away, gone to
join the many, many dreams and ambitions which long ago have vanished, we
know not where, and with it passes-

T has been said that for a history to be complete, exact, and truthful it must be
Written years after the events to be commemorated have transpired, for his-
tories sometimes engender bitter feelings, and give rise to much that can never
be forgotten or forgiven, but a history of a class, and of the "classe superieur "
must not Wait to be written until the ties that bind its members have been broken.
Rather let it be given to the public when they who compose it are given to the
World, something for them to take with them when they begin life's battle in
earnest, something to treasure, a record of four happy years, years that have
passed all too quickly fraught with pleasure mingled with pain, with joy not
unmixed with sadness.
Always difficult to write a history, the nature of the many events which have
happened during our Senior year have made it doubly difficult. Too Well does
the historian feel his inability to perform in a competent manner the task assigned
him, too well does he feel his inability to do justice to a class which has been
acknowledged by so many to be truly Worthy of honor and praise, so for fear that
some one, whose kindness of heart may cause him to overlook many defects, shall
be disappointed after reading this little sketch, let me tell him to expect no flights
of burning eloquence, no words that thrill the heart, and take us up to the starry
heights, for of none of these is the historian capable. N
Witli highest anticipations, with noble ambitions, with glorious dreams of the
future, with ardent desires to accomplish great things, with many promises to our-
selves of the excellent use to which We would devote the four years of our college
life, the Class of '98 entered upon its existence. VVhat an event it was in our lives!
To be college men, even though we did belong to that down-trodden, much-
abused class, the Freshman, was, for the time being, sufficient for us. We felt
that now there was nothing to be desired, that we had reached the acme of
'T was a balmy, beautiful day in September, 1894, when we were unloaded
from those instruments of torture, Grissomis hack, and deposited upon the parade-
ground, in front of barracks, with what mingled feeling of fear, homesickness,
uneasiness, it is impossible to describe. Though the years have passed since
then, the memory of that long ride from the depot, and our arrival at College
remains as distinct as though it were yesterday, and the indescribable feeling
which being a " Rat " gave us, will linger in our memory through long years.
,But after the customary welcome which those wonderful beings, the Sopho-
mores, considered their religious duty to bestow upon us, after the homesickness
had passed away, and we had entered fairly upon the duties of college life, we
found that even then our " paths were not strewn with roses, l' many thorns, in
the shape of dreaded pillowings, sundry " buckings " and the commandant's recep-
tion beset our path. Try as we would, we could not escape being torn by them,
and they say all this is necessary to the well being of the " rat ! "
Many were they who composed the Class of '98 in the beginning of its career.
Many were the celebrities which it contained, but gradually they have passed
away from our midst, until now, in our Senior year, we number thirty-two. As
we glance back over the years, we are compelled to pause and wonder where are
the many who cast in their lot with us four years ago, and the answer comes,
1' They have all dispersed and wandered,
Far, far away."
Yet we would know if their thoughts ever turn to the dear old College and the
class-mates left behind, if they have been with us in spirit during the years we
have been " absent one from another," if they have rejoiced when we rejoiced,
and sorrowed when we sorrowed. Much concerning those who once were with
us we lain would know, but as Time has winged onward his relentless flight he has
taken them far from our lives, and all that is left is, memory.
How quickly the years have passed since we entered college It is difficult
to realize that since then four years have been added to the long vista of ages.
But sometimes we think, so much has transpired during this time, that it has
been almost an eternity. How distinctly we remember with what awe and admira-
tion we looked upon a Senior. VVe might dare aspire to being a Sophomore,
but to look' forward into the future and imagine ourselves Seniors! Ye gods and
little fishes ! we never, in our wildest flights of imagination, dared dream of such
heights. For what knew Freshmen of Senior cares and joys P How dare they
aspire to one day being honored with this noble title P Such heights were far
bevond their ken. But Father Time continued with unabated activity to use his
scythe, and when we became transformed into Sophomores, we would
occasionally give harbor to the thought that one day we might be
Seniors, even though there was great danger of the noble ship of '98
being wrecked upon some of the many rocks which lay along our course. But
when the voyage was ended and we had escaped destruction, when from Sopho-
mores we had been transformed into happy, jolly, studious juniors, we permitted
ourselves to be carried into the future to the time when we, the once despised
" rat," should wear the honors of the staid, dignified Senior.
So with the joys and sorrows, the work and play peculiar to each class, passed
quickly away the years before we attained this dignity. As Freshmen, we dared
not think, dared have no opinion of our own. We were at every one's beck and
call, and always running in the way of somebody. Oh, for the good old days,
when a " rat J' was made a pet of by no one, and was not considered better than the
old boy. But, sad to relate, those days are numbered with the boundless past.
When we had passed beyond this degraded state, when we had attained our
" Sophomorical growth," we began to feel ourselves, and to feel that after all there
was some pleasure in life. Then we had a work to do, and as has always been the
case with the Class of '98 it was well done. VVe were on the reception committee,
and it is said that we received remarkably well. '
From Sophomores to juniors was a quick transition. jolly, studious, fun-
loving juniors were we, combining wonderfully well the numerous traits of char-
acter which a junior should possess. Wfith but little regard for our importance,
but possessing a deep love for our College and endeavoring in all things to have
it attain that excellence which we wished to belong to our Alina Mater. Happy,
jolly junior year! Long will it linger in our memory as the happiest of ourcol-
lege years. But our happiest days are soonest ended, and once more the session
draws to a close, once more we bid each other a fond adieu, and we are juniors no
longer, but Seniors, noble, dignified Seniors, of course, for dignity and the term
Senior are synonymous. Wliat visions of Senior glory, Senior joys, and Senior
happiness crowded before our mental vision. How proud we felt of our dignity
and of our Senior honors. But sometimes that which sparkles the brightest and
gives glowing promises of the future does not always fulfil our anticipations.
Though it is always with gladness that we pass from one stage of our college
career to another, though we are elated at the prospect of accomplishing our
aims, it is always with sadness that we bid adieu to the days that for us contain so
much pleasure. Our hearts grow heavy at the thought of bidding farewell to
the dear old companions, even though we are nearing the goal for which we are
striving. VVe think sadly that we have only one more year of such close com-
panionship, and the thought detracts somewhat from our Senior anticipations.
How often in the years to come will we call to mind the happy by-gone days
before we were Seniors, days in which were formed friendships that shall last
until the golden eternity.
And now, we have achieved what we had thought would be the crowning
glory of our life, that point at which we had once thought there was nothing to
be desired. VV'e are Seniors!
Ye who have never experienced the delightful sensation of having bestowed
upon you the name Senior, ye who have never revelled in visions of Senior uni-
forms and shoulder bars, ye who have never had upon your shoulders the almost
insupportable dignity of a Senior, ye who have never listened in vain for the
praises and commendations which are bestowed upon a Senior, ye have lived in
vain. Ye have lost the greatest joy, the greatest pleasure which life can offer.
Ye who have never known the cares, the trials which being a Senior entails,
ye who have never experienced the thousand and one worries that make life
miserable for the Senior, ye who have never been able to see K' behind the scenes "
as a Senior can, ye whose faith in mankind has not been shattered by such reve-
lations, ye who have never been told that you have neglected your duty, con-
gratulate yourselves and trust that it may never fall to your lot to be Seniors.
The first day of the session of ,Q7-Q8 was an auspicious one for us. Wfas it
11ot the beginning of the most important year of our life P Important in more
ways than one, too. In our ignorance we imagined there was nothing but smooth
sailing ahead, no storms to cause us uneasiness, nothing to disturb the even tenor
of our way, and
" NVhere ignorance is bliss
' T is folly to be wise."
Ye men of '98, how can I, with my unworthy pen, fitly commemorate thy
greatness ? Material for the greatest epic of modern times might be gathered
from thy deeds 3 from ye might Nature's greatest poet receive inspiration, the
most noted historian of the age might be honored in giving thy history to the
world, only the pen of a master could accurately portray thy noble achievements,
only one inspired could fully do justice to thy merits. I-Iow then can I, one of the
least of your noble band, perpetuate in writing thy memory P
Men of '98, whose praises have been sung by all-men of '98, whose deeds
Cand misdeedsj and opinions have struck consternation to the heart of the " San-
hedrin,"-men of '98, who have assisted in bringing lines of care to the brow and
removing the signs of youth from the cranium of our Commandant,-men of
'98, who have had secret audience given them in the 'K Holy of I-Iolies,"-men of
'98, ye who are brave, and noble, and true, I salute you. May honor and success
be yours! May you maintain always that dignity and honor, that nobleness of
purpose, which is characteristic of the sons of the South!
All unconscious of the many discouragements awaiting us, oblivious to what
the future contained, we entered upon our cares as Seniors. Doubtless had we
realized the many cares and responsibilities which would be ours, our hearts would
not have been so light, nor would we have anticipated so much from this one
year. But fortunately for us mortals the future is closed to us, we must be con-
tent to live in the present, hoping that the future will realize our dreams. In our
ignorance we supposed ourselves to be entering Elysian fields, an ideal fairy-
land. Such a rude awakening as we had! Too soon did we find that our visions
were only bubbles of air, which vanished at a breath. That our Senior honors
were accompanied by other things, and that not always glory, we were soon
made aware. We were conscious of the dignity of our position, we felt its responsi-
bilities, but before very long we were forcibly informed that we had not known
the liundredth part.
Always, at the opening of the session, the first thing to occupy our attention
after we have greeted old friends, and inquired into the manner in which things
are to be conducted during the session, is footballg and '98 was well represented
on the team. Wfhat a successful season it was! VVe went nearly wild when we
defeated the University of North Carolina. Even we dignified Seniors so far for-
got our dignity as to join in the celebration. It was glorious! But-would
there were no Hbuts "-during the celebration the strangest thing happened.
By some unaccountable OJ means, the " calaboose " in town was discovered to
be on fire. It was supposed that more fuel was needed for the bonfire. VVe Clonit
know, but we do know that among those declared guilty of participation in that
special feature of the joyous demonstration was-oh, woe is me-a Senior, a
diguiifcd Senior! Oh, the pity of it! How could you, Ikey ? How could you
jeopardize our precious dignity in such a manner ? Then the Faculty met and
" Tkey " was probationed. The dignity of the class had received a terrible blow.
VVe must also note the fact that sometime before this " Ikey " had a birthday.
The Senior Class extended congratulations. '
Almost before we were able to realize it, Autumn had passed away, bringing
the close of the football season and Thanksgiving. From the opening of the
session we had looked forward to it as does the weary traveler to the verdant
oasis in the desert. And now that' it had come and gone, we felt that we had very
little for which to be thankful. That dreary, dismal, disappointing Thanksgiving
Day on which our football team met its XVaterloo. How confidently we had
accompanied them to Roanoke, thinking only of the victory we were to win. The
victory was won, but none of the laurels fell on us. We did not even catch a
glimpse of them, and we came back, but not as we had gone.
Thanksgiving past, football over, we turned our attention to more serious
things. There was work to be done,and now was the time to do it. But almost
before we had recovered from the effects of Thanksgiving, and were able to bestow
our valuable time upon our numerous duties, came the thought of Christmas,
and when Christmas " gets in a rnan's bones " there is room for nothing else.
VV e were not exceptions. But such moments as we could have free from Christ-
mas anticipations were profitably employed, because now there was nothing to
divert us, nothing was going on. Only some of us were given private audiences
Thus passed quickly and pleasantly the time, until one morning we awoke to
the realization that Christmas holidays began today. Witli what joy we hail the
happy Christmas-tide. Wliat happiness it always brings. Now we would have
a chance to rest our weary Q?j brains. For two whole weeks no reveille, no daily
trips on the River Deutsch, no electrical discharges, no generation of heat, noth-
ing to do but show our Senior dignity, talk to the girls and-eat fruit cake!
Wliat visions of bliss floated before our minds! What a relief to lay aside for a
time our Senior cares. Happy, joyous Christmas of ,Q7 ! How often in years to
come will I recall thy pleasures ! WV hat a sacred place wilt thou always have
in my memory! .
But all happiness seems to end too soon, and once more we were back at
College ready QPD to resume our work. But it was hard to erase from our minds
visions of home and Christmas joys. Necessity demanded it though, and when' the
"devil drives we needs must." Looming up before us, like some dreadful hobgoblin
terrible to behold, were-Examinations!! Almost we had forgotten that such
things existed. Some of us had devoted so much time to The Gray Jacket, foot-
ball, and-well, some other things, that we had entirely lost sight of the " times
that try men's souls." Wfe were made to experience them, at any rate.
Seniors, however, are never daunted, and when examinations came, if we did
not come out whole, we were not so badly broken. Wliat a sigh of relief we drew
when they were over! Half the course had been run, and soon would we be on
the " home stretch." One more set of examinations was the one consoling
thought, and then-ah, then!
Immediately after examinations is a trying period with most college men. It
was so with us. After the suspense, work, and worry attending them, we feel as
though we would like to take life easy for a while. But how can you, with another
term and its accompanying work staring you in the face ? For the Senior, so
much depends upon this second term. More upon its ending than upon the term
itself, perhaps. For that ending means the successful completion of four years
of college life, or-failure. In the vocabulary of a Senior there should be no
such word as fail. I
The session is fast drawing to a close. The twittering of the birds, the balmy
air, the lengthening days, herald the approach of Spring, and beautiful, gentle
Spring foretells the advent of Summer, and with Summer, Commencement, to
which we have looked forward with such anticipation, and oh, how earnestly we
have wished that " it might be soon,', for you must know that Spring did not
bring to us that peaceful quiet, that calm, blissful solitude of which the poets tell
us. The spirit of unrest so prevalent throughout our land penetrated even to the
mountains which surrounded our isolated college. The spirit of war was every-
where. There was a vague uncertainty, an undetinable something, we knew not
what, in the air. There must be a climax, and it came. It served only to sink us
deeper into the depths of misery and uneasiness which surrounded us. Familiar
to us all is the eventful night of March 13th. VVe had hoped that this was the
terminating point, the grand finale. But alas for the hopes of men! So often
are they only " dead sea fruit." So often do they vanish into the empty air, leav-
ing to us only a vain, intense yearning for that which our fancy had pictured, and
the sad thought of what " might have been." How forcibly was this impressed
upon us Seniors. All hopes of peace and quietness vanished. Now there was
nothing but suspense, unrest, uneasiness. So ardently did we long for the end
of the session, or-peace. Anything that would soothe the restless spirits was
greatly to be desired. But the troubled waters were not stilled, save by Time,
who soothes all troubles, and who was also merciful to us, bringing with his rapid
flight promises of relief in the future.
The history of the Class of '98 is but a tale that is soon told and the aim of the
historian will be accomplished when the story is ended. His task is almost com-
pleted. Sadly does he regret his inability to be able to do full justice to the dear
old class. He would have liked in eloquent language to tell of four years of pleas-
ant companionship, of the happy college life so dear to every one. He would
have liked in glowing words to tell of the deeds of the men of f98, and the much
which they have accomplished, of the heights which they have attained, but noth-
ing of this has he been able to do. He has only endeavored to give his classmates
something which in after years may bring to them pleasant memories, fondurecol-
lections and happy friendships of the days of yore.
Soon will be ended four eventful years. Soon will the Class of '98 be thrown
upon the world. Soon will we take our places in the battle of life, to fight man-
fully for all that is noble, honorable and true. Soon will we bid farewell to the
dear friends, bidding each God-speed on the voyage of life. Soon will the friend-
ships which have grown and strengthened for so long be ,severed Severed?
Then of no value are they. Of what use is friendship that can not exist when the
friends are apart ? Can not those who have known and loved each other during
their college life carry the love with them into life's battles F Separated we may
be, but our friendships severed ? Never.
Looking down the ages of Time I see
U The mists ofthe past grow bright,
And heroes all garlanded glorious,
Wallc forth in the radiant light."
Heroes whose lives tell the men of '98 of the gallant deeds to be accomplished,
of the glorious future awaiting them. Heroes whose crowns of laurel tell the
men of '98 of victories to be won. Heroes whose spotless lives and noble char-
acters incite us to higher aims and nobler deeds. Heroes garlanded with the love
and admiration of ages, tell the men of '98 that they too, may thus be garlanded.
Perhaps the gallant deeds of the men of '98 may yet resound through the ages.
None can the future foretellg but
Who, looking on this little band, '
Shall see the Christ, the Luther, or Lee here?
But doubt it not, throughout the land
Their name and fame shall yet appear-
Lo ! the misty clouds of future
From my vision roll away,
And I see the worldls heroes
In the boys of the to-day.
Patriots, sages, statesmen,
1211 their time dffeds enrolled The Patriot, laurelled with great deeds,
7G'amSt the gleamlffg Splendld mormwv The Teacher, bearing Wisdom to the race,
From Us mountam Peaks of sold- The Statesman, grappling with world's needs,
Within this little land have place.
With undeveloped souls they await
The signal and the time
That shall lead them on and upward A
To the heights where great souls climb.
And from the battlements of Heaven
Full from the starry way,
Smile the boys of all the yesterdays
On the boys of' the to-day.
And now there remains only the little worcl-farewell. VVhat a wealth of sad-
ness it contains ! Farewell ! We are loath to write it. Farewell to our college
days, our college 'I chumsl' Farewell to our boyhood! Welcome manhood!
For College boys no longer are the Class of 398, but men on whom may depend
the destiny of a nation, for the boys of to-day are the men of the future.
Our hearts are sad at the thought of parting. The golden chain of friendship
has linked us indissolubly together. It is hard to disengage the silken cords of
love that unite us. They can not be broken, but perhaps other joys and sorrows
may cloud the memory of the friendships of our college days, And this is the
saddest of all.
Class of '98, may the highest honors crown your efforts ! May all prosperity,
all happiness, be yours! May the memory of the pleasures of our college life
ever remain sacred! May the friendships formed never be forgotten!
And now the shadows are stealing softly o'er the mountains, The evening
sun is slowly sinking to rest, tinting the mountain summits with crimson and gold.
The birds are whispering a last good-night. Twilight, calm and peaceful, comes
stealing across the meadow. All around is peace. A fitting time to bid farewell
to the scenes of our college days. Only our hearts are sorrowful. One last lin-
gering look around the place which memory will hold so dear, one last good-bye
and-God bless you, boys! Farewell! I

T is with a great deal of hesitation that I now make an earnest attempt to write
this little bit of history. There must always 'be more or less of sameness in
writings of this kind, ancl, as my originality is hardly an appreciable quantity
I beg the forbearance of the reader. Everything seemed feasible enough until the
attempt was made, then all my ideas deserted me, my little stock of originality
vanished, the muse refused my wooing, remaining cold and distant. My plea to
the reader of these lines is, that he will try and appreciate the effort and should
any thought strike him as not being entirely homely, I beg him to make the most
Three long years ago most of us met here for the first time, and as " rats,"
rats, those indeterminable, yet annoying quantities, without which no college is
complete. The events of those first few months remain, above all others, the most
vivid of all our impressions. The change at first was almost too great for us to
bear, indeed many of us wondered if we were not dead, having been disintegrated
by the constant jolting of one of Grissom's old hacks, and was now in-Tartarus.
" Rats !" What an awe-inspiring sound that word had for usg and, as rats
always are, we were " fresh,"-very fresh and green-fit subjects for the Sopho-
mores, bayonet and pillow. VV'ith all respect to our professors, we learned more
about the laws of falling bodiesfimpact, and heat developed by friction, from the
Sophomoresf experiments, than from the professors. We were constantly in
everybody's way and very undesirable quantities.
The events of this year are too numerous to mention fully, a few of the more
important were, the first night and its attendant horrors, matriculation-day, when
we became the subjects of " Prexie which is called the great," and slaves in the
land of Polyteck. The daily drills-and here, as everywhere else, our Nemesis
took the form of a Sophomore, our sworn enemy. Those terrible nightly vaude-
ville concerts with the Sophomore again as stage manager. It seemed that the
year would never end, but it did, and with it our winter of discontent.
The three short months of vacation passed with amazing swiftness, time
enough, however to heal all our bruises, and forget that " rats " possessed any
sense of feeling. September saw us all back again-we were early-we did not
desire an early matriculation, but to be on hand to receive the rats, to render them
a warm reception.
Vacation had wrought a wonderful change in us. The before indeterminate
quantities had been resolved into an all-important factor of college life-that is,
Did we not feel our importance ? Well, yes, you bet we did! We were a
very exclusive set, the select of the four hundred. Of course we had nothing to
do with the upper classmen, they were too sedate and dignified. But the Fresh-
men-that is another thing. Were they not the rising generation, to be illus-
trious Sophomores next year, so of course they were our proteges, perhaps we
should say " fagsf' for what is a Freshman good for but to obey implicitly every
wish of ours. Again it is the Soph. that is supposed to raise all the deviltry-well,
we did. The President and Commandant seemed to take an unwonted interest in
us, for some of us were always being in consultation with them, or the Faculty.
Then, there were some of us who had pieces of gold braid on our sleeves, they
were " Corps," the proudest fellows that ever wore a uniform.
Another Commencement and vacation passed and we are again assembled
on the College Hill. Now my real task begins. Many and great were the
changes we had undergone during the vacation. We had lost the par excellent
qualities of the Soph,-the astounding audacity, superb conceit, and persistent
inquisitiveness. In other words we had become Juniors, studious, painstaking,
unpretending juniors, fellows with a jolly good humor, full of fun, philosophers,
and more than all, possessed of that peculiar brotherly love called class spirit.
After matriculation, the few remaining days of the month were spent in readjust-
ing ourselves to the way of Polyteck. Relating our vacation adventures, talking
of, and writing lengthy letters every day to he1',' but that does not concern class
'L Rat " was the first word we heard on entering the campus. Yes, they were
here, here, there and everywhere. A swarm, fresh, green and juicy--little inno-
But, as juniors, we could not attend to the needs of these verdant things. VVe
held a consultation with the Sophs, and, as " a word to the wise is sufficient," their
needs were attended to in the latest and most approved style.
Our respects to the " Rats " having been paid, we were free to pursue our
regular duties. This year is undoubtedly the hardest in our college course, one
of hard, earnest study. VVe soon settled down to the 'K grind." The professors
seemed to league against us, to vie with each other, who could give the longest
recitation. Seemingly, they considered us mere machines, to be taxed to the
utmost g or sponges, to absorb unlimited quantities of knowledge, to give it out
easily when pressure, in the shape of problems were brought to bear upon us.
Nothing daunted, we persevered, and as philosophers, made the best of every-
October ushered in our first class meeting, but, alas ! upon investigation, we
found our numbers sadly depleted, and one half of our last year's class had not
returned. Some, we fear, had been ensnared by the wiles of winsome lassiesg
some are matriculates of other collegesg and others, to our sorrow, have fallen by
the wayside, or, in other words, the frivolities of the Sophomore year proved too
fascinating, perhaps some were lost between the branches of a parabola, or had
hidden behind a descriptive plane. These last were only a few.
" Boozy " Harrison is at Cornell, Newton is working at his home in Rich-
" Green " Carter is in the laboratory testing department of a large manufac-
tory in Ohio. Bidgood is in Fayetteville, N. C., at work in a railway office. Frank
Cox is at home, pretending to be engaged in a mercantile business, but spends
most of his time dancing germans. Many others, that I should like to mention
individually, are fighting' the great battle of life in their several positions. As
great as our loss was, we were to a great extent recompensed by such fellows as
" Jap " and K' Sky-lights."
Football next engaged our attention. All of us are more or less football
cranks, consequently we bent our every energy toward its support, if not capable
of playing, by our rooting. NVe pride ourselves on having furnished three very
good men, " Jap," at quarter, Lewis, on the end, and " Cascade " as guard. A
trio to be proud of-and so we are. 'A Cascade H certainly deserves special men-
tion. He proved himself worthy of his name, and this is how: In a certain hotel
in l, just before one of our most important games, desiring to go to his room,
he stepped into the elevator-shaft, fell two stories, landed on a brick floor, and
picked himself up unhurt !
How the time Flew, and before we could fully realize it, Thanksgiving, with
all its attendant pleasures and sorrows, was upon us. This is the time when every
one goes temporarily insane over football. The game was played in Roanoke,
and thither flocked the Polytecks in great numbers. just think of it ! Qnce
more we walked on genuine pavements, saw the electric cars, buildings over two
stories high, and pretty girls galore. At the sight of them, how we cocked our
caps on one side, threw our heads back and strutted, that was as much as saying,
" Well, now, if you would like to see a beau ideal, just look at me ! " Every one
was at the highest pitch of excitement, even the Faculty stepped down from their
throne of reserve, mingled with the boys, raced up and down the field, and yelled
like-Comanche Indians. Everything was awfully jolly until the game, and, then,
oh, sorrow ofsorrows ! VVe were defeated !
The very next night came the Thanksgiving german. It is needless to say
that those of us that danced enjoyed it, but coming as it did, with the beauty,
brilliancy and witchery of the fair, it completed the demoralization begun by our
defeat, and left us all unfitted for study. To study was impossible, but the
professors did not realize it. They kept us steadily " on the grind? Hydraulics,
Mechanics, Calculus and " Dutch " made a miniature chaos of our brains.
Now came a great worker of miracles among LIS, a certain Doctor l, who
promised to relieve us of all our indispositions, to make any of us brilliant lights in
the scientific world. Ask the KK Maiden H how is his head for KK Math," and KK Iapf'
and Fentress how many fellows they have hypnotized, or, if you are KK bustedf'
ask one of them for a loan of ten dollars. Very soon after this the KK P's and Q's "
gave a delightful entertainment, entitled, KK All on Account of a Sandwich,', in
which KK lap i' Cwho would believe it Pj played the part of the devoted.
NVith the advent of December we began to brighten up. There was some-
thing worth striving for-the holidays ! We must have a good report for this
month, for, when we arrived at our homes, how pleasant it would be for the
KK governor " to come up, slap you on the back, and say: KK My boy, that 's a first-
class report of yours, here 's an X." q
Now the holidays ! My student pen is inadequate to describe the glorious
times we had in those few short days, when studies and college were entirely for-
The tenth of january saw every one of us back,-not one missing-chuck
full of plum pudding and KK blues." How long we would have been the victims
of melancholia I could not say. All at once we were aroused from our lethargy
and spurred into action by the approach of the dreaded examinations. How we
studied, and strove to untangle all the snarls and knots in our brains, to keep up
our E. M. F. in Electricity, to maintain our head in Hydraulics, to deal irregularly
with KK Dutch U verbs, and to disintegrate our Calculus thoroughly. We went to
church regularly, and burnt the midnight electricity, seemingly in vain. At last
we tackled them and came out victorious,-most of us, one making the highest
mark, others following close seconds.
Soon after the ordeal of the examinations had passed, a strange thing hap-
pened. One frosty night the trees between the Academic buildings blossomed
and bore strange fruit, having much the appearance of sundry articles of wearing
apparel. Next morning, when old Sol was just peeping over Palmer's hill, he
described a scene of perfect confusion. Every rat, and some others, too, were
striving with as much noise and confusion as they could make to gain possession
of these peculiar articles.
KK Senator H and KK Gib" next acquainted us with their dramatic skill in
KK Medica " and KKA Manager's Trials." Senator, as KK,Billy Fitz, an Afiliicted
Mortal," played his part in a manner quite natural, but, as KK Eudoxia Persim-
:nons," he overdid his part, being too affected. KK Gib," as KK Bill Scrapper, a
Bowery Boyf' assumed his role with characteristic ease.
Now an event of interest occurred. A committee from the Legislature paid
us a visit, and we did our best to make their stay pleasant. Our President
followed them back to the capital, and, largely through his efforts, the enemies of
our college were defeated.
Holt left us about this time, and is now launching war vessels and building
dry docks at Newport News. That class-meeting, when we were gathered
together, to bid him farewell, was a scene eloquent with deep feeling and touching
sympathies. Some outsiders have said they heard sounds as of blows being given
and deep sighs. As some one has it:
Then Holt said good-bye,
Witli a tear in his eye
And a warm spot in his heart UQ foreach one.
So, right well may you bet,
He 1'Gll1ClHb61'S them yet-
Euch blessed 'L son-of-a gunfl
VVashington's birthday passed very quietly, and, for a wonder, the " Rats "
retained their " scalpsf' Great baseball interest was displayed. The Class
League was discussed and organized, with " Senator " as manager, and " Paddle-
foot " as captain of the Juniors. Oh, I was about to forget a very important
event I 'K Jap " and the " Baron " both got " Seargesf' and Allen, Sergeant-
How time has flown ! The days are growing longer and longer. Old Sol
is not so reluctant to rise for reveille. The days are hazy and spring-like-the
campus is green, and the strawberry plants from their blossoms seem to promise
feasts to come. One and all we are becoming sufferers to that agreeable malady,
" spring-fever." i
Now, soon will come the time, Commencement, with its many pleasures and
attendant sorrows of parting-parting, never to meet again as Juniors. Then we
will see, perhaps, for the last time, our " Uncle Davy." VVe wish him every suc-
cess, wherever he goes, either Cuba or Klondike. Then the vacation, and, presto
-we are Seniors !

OMB one has remarked that college honors are not great honors after all,
at least, there is a certain amount of risk connected with them. They are
I indeed honors if success goes along with them, but if failure is the com-
panion, where then does the honor come in T? It is with misgivings that I respond
to the request to write a history of my class, I trust my readers may be merciful
in their criticisms, for I shall need all their consideration.
VVhen we arrived last fall, it was with emotions differing from those we
experienced in the previous year. Indeed, we were inclined to consider our recep-
tion a trifle cold, as we observed all the receiving powers being turned in another
direction. Most of us had been promoted, WVe were no longer privates in the
rear ranks, and that circumstance alone was some compensation for the seeming
neglect. At all events, with few exceptions, we were all " old boys, " we could
strut around, assume an important air 3 it was no fault of ours if quite frequently
we were mistaken for officers of high rank. Looked up to as we had not been
before, We were ready to give advice to all who desired it. There was only one
feeling which disturbed the general joy, the absence of those of our class-mates
who were not to return. In vain we searched for some familiar faces. Here one
had decided to take the classics, there another had selected the practical course of
quill-driving or of agriculture.
Putting aside pleasantry, our class lost some good men. Richardson and
Bugg,-the former historian and the latter vice-president, we were informed by
their fellow-citizen, the K' Duchess," had taken to other schools and climes. Bugg,
aspiring to higher latitudes, is at Eastman Business College, and, probably, has
graduated by this ti-meg Richardson is at I-Iampden-Sidney. " Goldbug " has
been lost in the silver crusade, or he may be inventing horserakes in Chicago. I-Iis
inventive genius is sure to take care of him, but, should that fail l1l1'I'l,.l1C has his
Oratorical powers tO fall back upon. Some one said Bradley and Tufts were
studying at Hampden-Sidney, but the statement could not be verified. Little
Willie Messervy left before commencement, but he was so generally beloved that
I am forced to say a few words about him. He is down somewhere in South
Carolina, finding his way into the hearts of those who will listen to his iiattery.
He lost his wind while out snipe-hunting, and never quite recovered it. Messervy
was an extensive visitor, and excelled in cutting reveille and other formations,
military and unmilitary. Copenhaver is in the pursuit of knowledge at Emory
and Henry, Reddy and he were room-mates on the second Hoor of the new bar-
racks. The two possessed great afhnity for each other, illustrating the law in
chemistry that elements with different properties make strong compounds. They

were the disturbing molecule of their floor g they usually acted while in the nascent
The places of those who failed to make connection with Blacksburg, were
filled by a number of new students, who were courageous enough to enter the
Sophomore class, they are almost too,numerous to mention, but their names will
be found in the class list. The species will be dealt with later. Putting our
friends' names last willrcause very little comment.
Sad to relate, among those who did return, there were few happy faces. To
a casual observer it may have seemed that the prospect of numerous Hunks had
cast a damper on their spirits, but close scrutiny knocked all that out. It was still
too early to think of examinations, what then was the cause of their gloom ? Ah !
well ! all know the strain on a cadet's mind incblmbellt on leave-takings, separation
from home people, home surroundings and " friends." Of this we must not, can
not speak, Christmas would come to heal the hearts, and Christmas did cure those
pangs-when it came.
But before that happy event many incidents occurred to break the monotony.
Soon after the opening of the session, " Splinter " Wood, the hero of many a foot-
ball field, was unanimously chosen President, anyway, he received the most votes.
The other officers were chosen much in the same way, some for good looks, some
for efficiency, and the rest for " just so, you know." The Historian, however,
resigned shortly afterwards, having received a loud call to a larger field of useful-
ness. He spends most of his spare time in sketching, so was requested by THE
BUGLE Board of Editors to draw for that publication. They could not get along
very well without the Englishman in the decorative department, the present His-
torian was, accordingly, appointed as his successor.
Till Thanksgiving, football was the outlet for our surplus energy. What,
between drilling " rats " and keeping them from straying into the broad road of
" freshness," the Sophomores had plenty of work on their hands. Then, Satur-
day nights, a few of them held dress-parade in " white dominpsf' In their ardor
for the good appearance of the battalion, the Sophs outdid all other classes. Drills
were held at the small hours of the night, the parade formed and the squad
marched down " Professor's Rowf, It was a unique review that was occasionally
held in front of the professors' doors, and the Faculty and upper-classmen should
show a proper sense of appreciation. W' e may have failed in our duty of training
the new students in the way they ought to go, but our failure is not due to lack
of ardor on our part. 4' Rats," it must be remembered, are not capable of appreci-
ating all the good things that are done for them.
" Splinter " VVood, " Dick " Herbert and " Jumbo " were our representatives
on the football team, and very good men they were. All know pretty well what
they did, or ought to know, I will not sing their deeds of valor. Their names
belong to the records of the football team.
Thanksgiving Day is always noted by some special incident. The new
feature introduced this year was the giving of free rides to " fresh rats." It really
was considerate and kind in the "old boys," to take such an amount of trouble, but
the trouble was lost sight of in the thought of the pleasure afforded the " rats."
Somehow, the rides terminated abruptly, indeed they might have been termed a
descending ratio, with a precipitate to finish up with.
Christmas came, but it was a very long time coming, but at last it came,
bringing with it the announcement that the holidays would, under no circum-
stances whatever, begin before December 23d. We thought we could not be
college boys if anything of such little importance as an order from the President
should stop us. We were animated with a desire, and that desire was to get
away as soon as possible. Stoneman played 'possum, but the rest were above such
schemes. We actually began to be industrious, and made up evening work by
working at " Release from Quarters," By doing this, most of us managed to
leave on the morning of the 22d, reaching home quite unexpectedly a day ahead,
and with the satisfaction of having done a most praiseworthy thing. What a great
time we had at home!
Now commenced a season of hard work. The examinations would begin
within three weeks, and it behooved us to cast aside all recollections of days gone
by, and knuckle down to our books. Our storage capacity is somewhat limited,
and the wonder grows, like C-oldsmith's village schoolmaster, " that one small
head should carry all he knew." Our poor heads were strained to the utmost for
a time, but when the examination really came, those poor heads seemed as empty
as our pockets. just before those events occurred, we were surprised to hear that
our ranking corporal had taken his flight early one Sunday-morning. " Corp."
Ferguson had accepted a position in Richmond. We might have called on him
had we known he was going, to express our regrets in the most feeling manner,
but we only found his room bare, and we shed tears over his absence. " Bones "
is now ranking " corp.," but that distinction did not make him " stuck up,"
though, of course, he must have felt his increased importance.
Another promotion took place shortly after, if it could be called a promotion,
I think the orders read 'K appointedf' " English " was appointed Drum-Major.
I-Ie is quite a modest young man, but can keep a stiff upper lip, these qualifications
combined make him a tip-top Drum-Major. To judge from the number of
broken window-panes down where he passes, we may infer that he is quite an
adept at twirling the baton, and does much practicing in his boudoir.
A careful perusal of the honor list, published after examinations, shows that
Hardesty made " highly-distinguished," Jewel, Macgregor, Walker and Wysor
were distinguished. The names of those who were extinguished does not
Baseball now became the absorbing theme, taking up the entire attention of
the athletic element. Many were the meetings held, many were the speeches
made, at last everything was arranged. " Billy " Archer was made captain of the
Sophomore team, and that was enough to ensure a gallant class team. " Release
from Quarters " was made use of every day, the class-teams almost
equalling the first team in their earnest practice. The various parts of
the campus were dotted with athletic-spirited cadets, clad in the immortal
orange and maroon. Those who did not wear a sweater, of the striped
goods pattern, did not seem to be in the game at all. I can not give proofs of the
efficiency of our team, but you may be sure that they will be all right at the end
of the race.
That little phrase, " honor to whom honor is due," applies to all the varied
scenes of life, and I have had it suggested to me that it ought to be applied to
ourselves, or, rather, to those of us who are worthy of honorable mention. I refer
to my classmates who so bravely and conscientiously guarded our barracks. I-Iour
after hour they walked on their beat, casting sidelong glances to their comrades as
if warning them not to venture on the forbidden ground, The weather was cold
and dreary' occasionally, still the brave hearts plodded ong when the elements
threatened to overwhelm them, they retreated to the stoop, and there, under the
watchful care of the Officer-of-the-Day, tried to snatch at pull from a cigarette,
when his eagle-eye happened to be turned in the right direction. The receptions
held in the Commandant's office were numerous 5 doubtless there they received
thanks for the work so nobly performed in the face of many discouragements.
The gratitude of the class is extended to them, with the further hope that " the
powers that be " may, in the future, show greater leniency to those willing and
faithful souls. Cutting reveille and throwing tin cans may be classed as Fine arts,
but neither are sufficiently remunerative professions to receive encouragement. A
few of our number, not very long ago, realized what " monkeying " with the fine
arts was, and to their cost. " All 's well that ends well," but how about ending
badly ? Usually a reducing agent is employed, and occasionally a reaction takes
place. Such was the case with four of our gallant corporals, they were reduced,
but after the won't-you-be-good period had expired, they were reinstated.
Beware, future Sophomores, if you are walking for a " first sergf'
Our college can not be said to lack patriotism, our patriotic spirit is far ahead
of our college spirit, or the country would certainly suffer. WVell do we remember
the twenty-second of February, ,Q7, which date happened to be the anniversary
of George VVashington's birthday, as the Faculty had the pleasure of informing
us. Cold weather set in shortly- after that memorable, date, and a few of the
delicate new students suffered considerably, owing to lack of head-covering.
Reveille would find us awake trying to prevent the least possible draught, by
chinking up the Windows. The times, indeed, were quite breezy, always bringing
fresh currents in contact with our craninms. Cast but a glance at the picture of
last year's Sophomore Class, a number of thatvnoble collection of specimens of
humanity were new students last year. True to our principles, we did not wish
to copy from those who had gone before, because such and such a class swiped
footgear was no reason for our doing the same. Far from descending to such
gross and demoralizing pastimes, our minds soared to higher and more elevated
deeds. Like George Wasliington, who cut his name higher than all others, we,
emulating' his deeds, raised our Hag above all others. The morning broke calmly
on a scene which aroused the envy of our honored college-mates, our flag was
floating triumphantly from the top of the water-tank. It had been hoisted by one
whose name will be handed down to future generations,-Matthew S. I-Iopkins.
Those who assisted in this praiseworthy action will excuse me if I do not mention
their names, their names will live in the hearts of their class-mates.
It will not do to lay down my pen or stop the Hovvvof rhetoric GQ, until I make
mention of a few, who Cmay it be said of them?j.helped to smooth out many a
rough and knotty problem, and to brighten many a gloomy hour. Looking over
the history of our class last year, my eye is caught by the name K' Stonemanf' It
was thought that Stoneman, or " Brickbatsf' had wheels in his head, when they
started running something was bound to come from the interior of his cranium.
In Physics this was quite often the case. One day his mind wandered so, that
when Professor Pritchardls Toepler-I-Ioltz Influence Machine made a kind of
grating noise he exclaimed, " Down brakes ! Change cars ! "-for what point we
are left to infer.
Speaking of Physics, brings another incident into mind. 'K Chis " was very
fond of reclining in his seat, and of elevating, not his thoughts, but his pedal
extremities, greatly to the disgustand consternation of Professor Pritchard, who
declared that the weight of the said feet had affected his " inclined plane."
" joey " must not be forgotten, for it was he who did most towards keeping
up the spirits of his companions by way of sweet music. 'K joey 'J was really a
good singerg and, in addition, a cornetist of some note. He stepped into Barber
Mallicote's place, and filled it quite " all right." It could be said of him that there
was music wherever he wentg those who happened to be within earshot usually
got the benefit of his performances. The quotation, " Music hath charms,"
applied extremely well in this case, that is, when it had the other line tacked on,
" Distance lends enchantment."
My task is done, soon our names will no longer appear on the roll of the
Sophomore Class, what has been done throughout the year can not now be
recalled. Let us stick together and make this, the hrst class of the new century,
the best that has ever graduated from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute.

N attempting to write the history of my class, I naturally feel my incompetency
to bear so great a responsibility. Man, so imperfect in his nature, and often
so erroneous in his conceptions, can not hope to attain perfection in any
respect 5 nor can he always even produce anything that will deserve the epithet
" well donef' So, then, we must content ourselves with imperfect productions
and it is only with this consolation that I dare undertake the task assigned me. .
P It is with pleasure, yet with a degree of melancholy, that we recall the day of
our departure from home. Bidding our loved ones farewell, we started on our
journey to " Grand Qld V. P. I.," the Polytechnic Institute of the South. It is
useless to describe our feelings on the way, for it was natural that our thoughts
should take us back to our homes, while our anticipations placed us at Blacks-
burg, busily engaged arranging matters with the President and Commandant.
And, I dare say, resolutions were made on our way that we would seize the golden
opportunity of life, for such it is, and use it, not in striving to satisfy our own
selfish desires, but in doing all in our power to promote that which is honest,
upright and noble.
On our arrival we were greeted with a hearty welcome. The " board of
reception " was kept busily engaged trying to make us feel at home, as it were,
. upon our father's knee. For the first few days we were inclined
to suspect ourselves of being on the other side of the earth, for
t, at any time of night we might awake and find ourselves lying upon
Y ' the floor with our bed on top of us, or, instead of our heads being
laid gently upon our pillows, the pillows were laid gently CPD
i iiigigg upon our heads. Moreover, the constant cry of N ratsf' by the
"""""""""'t"f"'f natives, almost convinced us that we were in the midst of China-
land. We soon learned that, though we were as green as an unripe watermelon,
yet we were not to be fresh as sea-water.
It will not be out of place to mention here the reception given to new students
by the Y. M. C. A., a few days after we arrived. Professor Campbell, through an
invitation by the President, I. A. Burruss, gave us an interesting talk, which was
much enjoyed by all. After services in the chapel, we were ushered into the mess-
hall, where many games were indulged in, and elegant refreshments served. It is
useless to say that every one was highly entertained, but it may well be said that
without the ladies the reception would have been devoid of merriment.
Some time after the session began, " VVillie 'l Hudgins, a rather small youth,
came to the College with the intention of entering our class, but on his arrival he
found that he was not able to rczwy the studies, so he concluded that he would go
back to his home in Eastern Virginia, where they t'Ul'I'y horses to water.
About this time football was in full progress. The team did fine work, still
holding the championship which they so well deserve. Our representatives were
Bean, Nettleton, Rucker and Scott.
In military, we were as bright as an " old shoe." ln fact, we learned so fast
that, instead of waiting till more seasonable weather, we had a white dress parade
in the midst of winter, at II 230 p. m. The night was cold, when, suddenly, we
were aroused from our peaceful slumber and hurried out to the roll-call, the north
winds whispering gently messages from Klondike, or some other region of snow
and ice. Then came the dress-parade, after which we were allowed to retire. We
had another parade later on, but-!
Well do we remember those happy CPJ days, when we used to take such pleas-
ant rides in the king of jumpers, the 'K ambulance." There are no springs to speak
of on the " ambulance." So great became the enthusiasm of the rider when he
entered the conveyance, that he lost sight of everything else,
especially a flight of steps down which he was to go. About jx
this time the conductor cried, " all aboard lu and away went "Q
the lightning car. But it had gone only a short distance, when , rr X xiii?
there was a jar, a jolting, and immediately the earth flew up
about three feet to meet the delighted excursionist. Then he
arose and looked about for the supposed flying machine, but, .I1I ff. ,,,,,L
alas ! he saw it no more, and the poor fellow walked slowly to his room.
Some of us took much interest in literature. One night, when it seemed as
if a storm were going to arise, a party of us took refuge in the library. This
showed the confidence we had in that department. It was rumored the next day
that we had been " sleeping in the library," but it was a mistake. Ere our eyes
closed in slumber, there was a gentle tapping about the -building as that of rain
drops, suddenly the door flew open, a light flashed in, and before we could realize
it, the storm was upon us. Wfhat followed will be left for the reader to guess, but
none of our class ever again showed such confidence in the literary department.
In process of time Christmas holidays came around. We had hoped to be
able to leave on the eighteenth, but the Faculty thought the twenty-second a more
suitable day. So we had to wait until that day, consoling ourselves with the
thought that the longer we were away from home the better we would appreciate
our visit. So, when the twenty-second came, we left for home, and, after twelve
seemingly short days, we returned to College, more homesick than ever, but the
intermediate examinations coming on, we soon turned our attention to our books.
lfVe studied hard that month, yet, when examination time came, we felt little
prepared for them. However, when the honor list was posted, we found that our
worthy President, R. B. Bean, was Highly Distinguished, and M. W. Davidson,
C. Derrick, B. M. Eoff, C. V. Poland, J. H. Gibboney, P. Powell, B. Rucker
and E. We1'ner were Distinguished, while a large number were Proficient.
Shortly after Christmas we were visited by the "1neasles,'7 to which R. V.
Crowgey fell a victim and was taken to the hospital, where he remained for several
weeks. R. M. Scott and S. Treverton, who had been exposed to the contagious
disease, left for home, and did not return until they had recovered.
About this time A. A. Mease left us, and later on H. T. Sheffey, neither of
That we ranked next to Solomon in wisdom was an accepted truth CPD among
us, yet we possessed those human failings so common among country lads,
First, we find Obenshain seeking wealth and honor. So, in an edition of
The Gray facket, we find the request that " some one will please inform Mr. Oben-
shain that the Officer-of-the-Day receives no salary, consequently, his application
will not be considered."
During the Christmas holidays " Little Doll-man " received an invitation to
dine with one of his friends, which he gladly accepted. So, on the appointed day,
he strolled quietly around to his friend's house, where there were many guests
assembled. Tn one of the courses was passed around some boiled custard, and he,
pouring it out upon his plate, and sopping it up with childish simplicity, remarked
to his nearest neighbor that it was as good grcztfy as he ever ate.
At the latter part of the first term there entered our class a young man named
Slusser, from the neighborhood of a well-known village not far distant. He, of
course, possessed that characteristic peculiar to the inhabitants of his neighbor-
hood, namely, to be backed down by no one. Seeing the other cadets drill so
well, his ambition rose almost beyond control, and he remarked that he would
apply for his gun immediately. On being informed that he could not get it, he
declared that he would not allow himself to be bluffed, and in a moment he was
at the Commandant's Office. However, he did not get the gun, but he got the
musket Qmust getj.
The following incident occurred in one of the lecture-rooms not long since:
Professor S. : "Mr, Ruff, how many flowers go to make up a solitary flower?"
Mr. Ruff Qafter much thoughtj : " Two, of course." A
Rucker, the " Smart Alecf' while walking along the street in one of our large
towns, chanced to see a peanut roaster by the sidewalk. So he bought some pea-
nuts, and, after eating for a while, he dropped a nickel into the smoke stack and
exclaimed: " I have had all I want to eat, now play me a tune ! "
Nor is this all that happened in that town. " Great " Scott, when it fell upon
him to extinguish the gas light, thought to make -a new improvement on the
present mode of extinguishing gas lights, he simply blew it out.
One of the most interesting events connected with our class is the great snow-
ball contest between th-e " rats " ofthe Old and those of the New Barracks. Two
days were necessary to decide the contest. The first battle was fought almost
directly between the two buildings, commencing about 5 p. m., and continuing
- .. K ,,-.fg?,:.1i,,,,4g,q
until the signal, " Retreatf' brought it to a close. But neither side seemed satis-
fied, so, the next afternoon, immediately after " release from quarters," the boys
began to prepare for the battle. This time they drew up between the two
Academic buildings, and immediately the battle began. The boys fought long
and well, each one having a spirit of patriotism implanted in his breast. Our
enthusiasm was greatly aroused to see such fellows as Crowgey, Powell, Pratt,
VVycke, Gray, Rucker and others, going fearlessly to the front as if the welfare of
their country depended upon victory. The battle thus waged for about an hour,
when, unfortunately, a misunderstanding arose between some of the participants,
and a " general scrap " seemed inevitable for a while, but, finally, they were paci-
fied. However, the battle was not renewed, in fact, it was not desirable among
the boys that it should be renewed, for, as it was, many had already begun to get
the " swell-head," and we might well have given vent to our feelings with the fol-
lowing quotation from " ?U :
't After the battle is over,
After the sun has shown,
After the old boys' leaving,
After the snow is gone.
Many are the heads broken
Could you but see them all,
Many the ' rats ' that have vanished
After the snowball. "
Next comes baseball. Spring is just beginning to put in its appearance,
and the boys are making good time practicing. Our class-team has played a
game with the Seniors, resulting in a score of 21 to II in favor of the latter team.
Yet our boys have no need to be discouraged, for victory may yet be in store for
us. Our officers are as follows. Bayard Rucker, captain, Prank Gatlin, business
manager, johnson, the 'K hog-caller," bat carrier, and Crockett, the inquisitive QD,
water carrier. VVe are also represented on the first team by Joe Durphy, "Pickle"
Painter, " Shoat " Skelding, and " Reddy " VVilkins, the captain.
Thus our history closes, and in future years, when we shall have dispersed to
all parts of the globe, may we reiiect with pride upon our class, and read its history
with that spirit which should characterize every true man.

I-IE rain had fallen heavily all day, the lake was veiled in mist, the mountains
clouds, as usual, only now they were dark and menacing. Over all that
loomed dark and gloomy beyond, Bald Knob towered aloft, covered with
look of depression common to a pleasure resort in the mountains during a long
rainy spell. Perhaps, at Mountain Lake the disagreeable is intensified, because to
mist and gloom and dampness, are added intense cold and execrable roads, giving
one a depressing sense of remoteness.
A few conscientious, semi-invalids were valorously struggling against wind
and rain on the long gallery, their noses tingled a melancholy purple, the rain beat-
ing upon their glistening mackintoshes. Presently, even they owned to defeat,
and the rain was left in full possession.
The girl standing at the window had been watching the struggles of the
pedestrians with a faint show of interest, now she shivered slightly and gave a dis-
consolate sigh. Then she made a clear spot on the window pane with her morsel
of a handkerchief, and resumed her watch upon what was visible of the outside
" Why can't you sit down, Dorothy E' " a voice said, querulously. " In my
day, a young woman had too fine a sense of her own dignity to spend hours at a
window watching for a mcm! "
" O, Aunt Serena ! You are severe," said Dorothy, blushing vividly. " I 've
only been here an hour, besides which," she added, smilingly, " Malcolm isn't just
an ordinary manf,
" No," replied her aunt, grimly, " he is also a cadet, and that alone is sufhcient
to make him only a little lower than the angels."
Dorothy laughed gaily. " VVell, now, auntie, confess, havenlt you in your
heart of hearts a little weakness for brass buttons ? You can't deny they are an
" No," said the old lady, grimly. "I don't-when they are on a policeman,
and he has one of your fine gentlemen in tow." Dead silence followed this bomb-
shell, and Dorothy took the opportunity to resume her watch at the window.
K' Is it possible, Dorothy," said Miss March, " that you are weak enough to be
expecting Malcolm to-day F VVhen even the mail could not be sent, and Mr.
Blake pronounces the roads impassable ?"
" I can't say I expect him, auntie," replied the girl, " but I can't help hoping
Miss Serena knitted away vigorously, exasperated boredom in every line of
her frowning face. " It is no more than you deserve I I said from the first
it was a wild-goose chase to come up to these wilds. If you must needs see Mal-
colm distinguish himself, I am at a loss to know why you could not have gone
straight to Blacksburg, instead of rushing off up here." ' -
" It is so lovely here in fair weather, Aunt Serena," said Dorothy, wistfully.
"I had hoped it might, perhaps, be pleasant for us both."
" lfVell, well, child, there ls nothing to do but grin and endure, it must stop
raining some time, only don't set your heart upon seeing Malcolm graduate. It
is my firm belief we are here for ten days to come." The last with a look of
stony despair, comical to behold.
The amusing aspect was wholly lost upon Dorothy March, who turned upon
her aunt a look full of distress, and was about to reply, when, above the monoton-
ous drip, drip of the rain, and the wild soughing of the wind, there came another
sound, oh, joy ! a rapid, firm, step upon the gallery. A moment more, and Mal-
colm Carruthers, wet, cold, but brightly smiling, walked into the room. Dorothy
made a little rush, and grasped his arm.
. " Oh Malcolm l" she said, fervently, " it isn't really you? You look as
though you were in danger of melting."
She laughed with sheer relief and happiness, and Malcolm, seeing her excite-
ment, guessed something of the weary watch that had gone before.
" Of course I came ! Did you think I had grown such a milk-sop as to be
afraid of getting wet ? "
"O, Aunt Serena has been prophesying all sorts of horrors, and I was 'deeply,
darkly, beautifully blue,' when you came.
" Well, Mr. Carruthers, when you can spare a few minutes to mere mortals,
I shall be glad to know how you managed what Mr. Blake positively asserted was
Aunt Serena spoke in a much mollified tone-her severity was more upon the
surface than inherent, and who could resist Malcolm's bright cheeriness ?
" I came as far as Newport last night," he replied, " slept the sleep of the just,
and awoke up in themorningto find the weather, well," waving his hand to the win-
dow-" what you see, beyond expression. I interviewed mine host as to means of
reaching here, and when he told me there was no earthly chance of procuring
horse or vehicle, I concluded to try that steady, faithful 'Old Reliable, Slmvzfksl
17lU7'L',H with a twinkle of his eyes in the direction of Miss Serena, "and here I am !"
" You walked!" cried Miss Serena, in a horrified tone. A' No wonder you are
muddy," with a significant glance at his boots and trousers.
Malcolm glanced down upon the spectacle with a smile. " Oh, well, Miss
Serena, you will pardon all that, I am sure, as being one of the necessary evils of
this charming spot. I dare say, in time you will object to neat trousers and boots
as incongruous. Of course, you are in raptures over this ' Garden of the Gods'? 'I
" I might be," said Miss March, drily, " if I were a mermaid, or a-duck. So
far I have seen nothing but water, and heard nothing but Dorothy's ceaseless-"
'f Aunt Serena ! " cried Dorothy, appealingly.
"'Wel1, my dear, if you are not ashamed to waste an entire day at the window,
watching for Malcolm, you certainly need not be ashamed to acknowledge it. I
dare say he will think it pardonablef' VVith this parting shaft, Aunt Serena
gathered together her possessions and mercifully' retired to her own apartments,
where she immediately rang the bell,and thus found avent for her excess of misery
in an unoffending chamber-maid.
Malcolm Carruthers was a handsome, manly young fellow, courage, truth
and gentleness spoke in every line of the bright young face, the beautiful mouth
was set in rather grave curves for one so young, but the whole face was instinct
with strength and tenderness. The girl beside him owned beauty of an uncom-
mon and bewitching type, masses of rich, wavy black hair covered a small and
graceful head, cloudy rings clustered round a low, white forehead, she had well-
marked eye-brows, and her eyes were of deepest blue, set in a sweet, pale, piquant
face, with lips of delightful cherry red, her teeth were like two rows of pearls, and
her figure was tall, lithe and slender. Carruthers had just come to the close of
his fourth year at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, with striking success.
Prime favorite with his comrades, approved and trusted by his instructors, his
future seemed full of promise this dark june day, when he came to take the girl he
was to marry to see him receive the just reward of his labors. The following day
the Commencement exercises at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute were to open,
and Dorothy's anxiety and distress were pardonable,in the face of the probableloss
of them all.
Malcolm and Dorothy had been meant for each other since their babyhood,
ever since Malcolm's gentle mother, dying, smiled her last farewell into the face
of her life-long friend, and more than sister. A' Look after my boy, Clare," said
the failing voice, " and give him Dorothy." Une more yearning look from the
closing blue eyes, which fell upon the two children, standing near the bed, their
big eyes filled with wonder and alarm,-the boy's chubby arm thrown protect-
inglyaround his companion's neck-then there fell upon her face a refiex of the
" light that never was on land or sea," and she passed " to where beyond these
voices there is peacef'
Strange to say, there had resulted none of the usual antogonisms and objec-
tions to these preconcerted plans, as the children grew, they grew also in sym-
pathy and understanding, absence only strengthened the bond, and now they
both looked forward gladly and happily, to a long life spent together.
During the night, wind and rain died away, the moon sailed serenely through
a peaceful sky, her image buried in the depths of a " sea of glass." Morning
dawned, gloriously fair, and by seven the lovers were floating quietly on the
bosom of the little lake, gazing with wondering eyes at the gaunt, ghost like
skeleton trees, still standing erect and defiant in the very bottom of the lake.
Long ago, what is now fair Mountain Lake was only a bold and beautiful
spring, having its source in some dim recess of the mountains, its outlet at the
bottom of this great ravine, deep dented in the highest point of the Alleghanies.
I-Iere, the cattle merchants traveling over " Peter's Mountain," on their way to
their shipping point, stopped to salt and water their stock-hence its former name
of " Salt Pond," which was changed to its present title not only because the latest
name is more euphonious, but " Salt Pond I' created a false impression, the waters
of the lake being fresh and sweet, proving conclusively that there exists a hidden
outlet at some mysterious point though not of sufficient volume to exhaust the
lake. The trampling of thousands of hoofs for so many years dammed up the
larger outlet, and then year by year the water increased, until the wondrous
beauty of Mountain Lake was bestowed upon us by a beneficent Creator. Two
hundred and fifty feet deep in places, the water is yet so purely clear that, looking
down, these silent, white corpses of the former monarchs of the forest are dis-
tinctly visible, and fill us with a weird, half fear, while the soul seems wrapt in
bewildering surprise at this scene of entrancing beauty. Before us, the limpid
stillness of the crystal water, reflecting in its depth the glorious flower-crowned
hills that encircle it. Down to the very water's edge grow magnificent rhododen-
drons and crepe myrtle, shedding their purple and pink radiance in reflected bril-
liancy upon the mirror-like bosom of the lake. Delicate ferns fringe the base-
nature beautifies and adorns this mountain yonder-her stern parents hem her in
with mighty force, but clothe their giant strength with flowers, and smile upon her
in rainbow hues. To the right, Bald Knob-standing in austere and massive
grandeur,-hidden oftimes in clouds, and again defined clear and sharp against
the dazzling radiance of the mountain sky-a king, in his silent, stern, loneliness,
his subjects at his feet.
Dorothy glanced up at the noble outline, as the little boat glided swiftly
I' 'The everlasting hills were boWed,' H she quoted softly. "We don't realize the
full significance of those words, until we have seen Bald Knob. It must, indeed,
be chaos come again, when that mighty mass is shaken." ,
She gazed in reverent wonder, for a few moments, at the entire scene in its
perfect, God-given beauty 5 then, with one of those rapid changes of mood which
constituted her chief charm, said mischievously 2
" Take it as an omen, Malcolm ! You will find it just as hard to shake me off
as to move Bald Knob-any attempt will only result in what I have just remarked
-' chaos come again !' "
" My thoughts are running in a different channel," said Malcolm, smilingly.
" I am just forging for trying to forgej the Ktie that bindsf not meditating your
becoming a mountain upon my hands."
" Oh, Dorothy," he continued, eagerly, " I have so much to tell you, sweet-
heart ! Do you know, I have had a position offered me, which I dare ask etfmz
you to share E' "
" An offer E' Already, Malcolm P"
" You remember hearing me speak of a devoted friend of my mother's, julian
Duchesne ? Well, he has large interests in California, as in almost every state,
and he wishes me to go to Los Angeles and manage a place he has there, the
house and grounds, he tells me, are beautiful, and his terms liberal beyond any-
thing I dared hope. I shall have to go there as soon as I can leave Blacksburg,
to be gone a year, and what I hope is, that when I return, it will be to take you
out. You won't disappoint me, dearest ?" A
" Indeed, no, Malcol1n,', said the girl, her voice trembling. "I only wish
the year was over-I dread to have you so far away-and there is one fault only I
have to find with your charming plans, it gives no scope to your talents, your
work seems to be purely physicalf,
H Oh, there you are wrong," said Malcolm, laughing, 'fone has to have a
good, steady head to manage a place of that kind, besides which, Mr. Duchesne
wishes me to become assistant editor on his magazine, " The New South," upon
which he has done such great work lately. So hands and head will have their
full measure of development, and all that is lacking will be the heart, and that you
She answered his half merry, wholly loving look with sweet gravity:
" Doesn't it seem almost too good to be true, Malcolm ? Everything is smoothed
before us, it almost makes me tremble-' the course of true love,' you know--"
" VVe will subvert that tiresome proverb," interrupted Malcolm, " it does not
frighten nm, but rather fills me with strenuous desire to be worthy of it all-and
of youf, he whispered, for they were on the gallery now, where Aunt Serena sat,
a picture of maiden martyrdom. "I have only been waiting breakfast since
seven, Dorothy," she began, without deigning to notice Malcolm, " it is now
nine ! 2'
H So late, Miss Serena ? who would have believed it? However, I have been
out since five, and gave cook a nice string of trout, with instructionsto put them
on when she saw us returning, so, perhaps, after all, your fast may help you to
enjoy them." Who could resist his frank kindness? Not Miss Serena ! In a
short time she was thoroughly enjoying the " speckled beauties," and Dorothy's
soft chatter, while Malcolm soon left them to prepare for the drive to Blacks-
Evening found them driving through the beautiful campus, the college build-
ings showing finely against the vivid green of the prefectly kept grass, and even
Aunt Serena's scorn of brass buttons did not prevent her sharp old eyes from
brightening with real interest, as group after group of students passed them by-
all looking so happy and so well, in their immaculate uniforms, and not one fail-
ing to render all due courtesy to the strangers within their gates.
. Dorothy had the perfect happiness of seeing the man she loved the first and
highest honored of all that goodly band. She sat with a proud heart and glisten-
ing eye, as she heard his name called again and again, as again and again he was
distinguished. And when at last he came to her, to claim the dearest prize of
all, her cup of happiness seemed full to overflow. 'K I am too happy, Malcolm, it
Malcolm laughed from sheer happiness. 'I You foolish, morbid, little soul!
A good dance will drive that nonsense out of your head' And sure enough,
when, a few hours later, they entered the handsome ballroom, a fairy-like vision,
with its handsome decorations and brilliant uniforms, as they floated down the
long room to the thrilling strains of " The Last Waltz," all gloomy forebodings
had flown far away, and there was room in her heart for nothing but its perfect
The morning after the ball found Dorothy fresh and bright, her superb
health enabling her to rebound easily from fatigue that left most girls pale and
weary. She stood on the porch of the little Inn, " as usual," Miss Serena said,
discontentedly, " watching for that boy." Presently she saw him, coming down
the broad walk through the college grounds. But, what was the matter?
Surely, the loss of one night's rest could not so transform the sturdy young fel-
low? He walked with heavy, dragging step, and as he drew nearer, Dorothy
saw that his face was very pale. She flew to the gate at the end of the little lawn.
" Malcolm," she said, breathlessly, " what is it? Are you ill? I-Iave you
had bad news ?"
I-Ie tried to smile a reassurance, but his lips quivered and hastily turning
away, he said, ,
'K I must go and bid Miss Serena good morning, won't you get your hat,
and go for a walk P" Dorothy went, without a word more. She was too truly
unselfish to rack him with questions when she saw how greatly he needed time to
They passed down the road in front of the college, in perfect silence, until
they reached the magnificent grove beyond. Once installed on the velvet sward,
beneath the shelter of the great trees, Dorothy's fortitude gave way.
" Malcolm, tell me quickly, what is it that is hurting you so F" Tears fell
fast upon the hand he had laid upon her own. The poor boy looked at her with
" Dorothy, how can I tell you? You remember when you asked me if
George was coming to Commencement ?"
She bent her head. " I might have known it was George," she said bitterly.
" You know you said I looked annoyed by the question-it was not annoy-
ance, dear, but wretched anxiety. George has been giving us a lot of trouble
for the past six months, for the last two, I have had no news of him until "-
" Until what, Malcolm, dear ?'f
" Until this letter," he said huskily. " It is from mother. George has
gotten into trouble in Richmond-he had been playing and-drinking-there
were high words, and one of the men struck him across the face. I-Ie was not
himself, Dorothy," he said, appealingly, " and-he is only eighteen, donlt judge
him too harshly."
" What is it ? Oh Malcolm, don't torture me so l"
Malcolm covered his face-when he removed his hands there was a look of
shrinking shame there it broke her heart to see.
" He came again into the room, when the fellow was playing cards, and-
shot him in the back. I-Ie must have died instantly."
There was a moments dead silence, then the girl's face flamed with love and
ofty. " Oh, my poor boy," she said, " how I shall love you for this! I must
love you more and more, to make you forget."
" But, Dorothy," he cried, hoarsely, " you don't understand-can't you
" See tvhazf W she cried, bewildered. "I can? tell you, read itf' I-Ie thrust
a letter in her hand, and moved off a little way,-he could not bear to see her
read it. It was a terrible letter, pitiable in its wounded mother love, its crushed
hopes, its bitter shame and awful fear-but marred by the vein of selfishness
all through. K' Remember, Malcolm, your promise to your father-' look after
the child, lad, he will never have your steady head, he will always need a firm
hand, and a loving heart, for my sake, stick to him, my boy.' And you, Mal-
colm, since it should be so-I don't deny you have been good to him, had he been
your own, instead of your half-brother, you could not have done more, but now,
7Z0'Z,.', is the test l Now is the chance to save him from a felon's cell-the gal-
lows-God knows what. I wish I could go to you and get on my knees, until
you promised to save him. There is but one chance, and not that one unless you
consent to give it to him. Captain Stanley is here with his yacht, and he offers
to take George on board at once, and sail to-morrow night, but he positively
refuses to take the responsibility unless you go with him. I-Ie is in fearful dan-
ger all the time he remains. Captain Stanley tells me the feeling against him is
so strong it would be almost impossible to protect him from violence. I have
not dared tell him anything, but that he must go, and at once. Our idea is to get
him to France for several years, when, possibly, I might join him and release you,
but the Captain tells me should I go now it would mean certain discovery. Can
you walk to your luxury and prosperity over your brotherls dishonored grave ?
Could any love keep you happy, knowing you had gained it at the cost of body
and soul to the brother you are sworn to protect P God forbid! I await you in
Norfolk. Do not delay an hour."
Dorothy read the letter, then sat with dazed eyes, gazing stupidly at the
fair scene spread before her. Then this is the end to all their hopes! The sun
bathed the lovely meadows in almost unearthly beauty-the voice of summer was
calling softly through the balmy air. Brightness and peace and happiness every-
where, but not for them. Malcolm came back, presently, and took the cold hand
in his-gently opening the little fingers crushed so desperately over the cruel
letter, and smoothing the deep, red lines left upon the tender palm. The look of
hopeless anguish in her sweet eyes almost unmanned him. I-Ie put his hand over
his own and groaned.
" Malcolm, must it be? I put aside our happiness," she said, brokenly,
" but is it just and right that the whole course of such a life as yours should be
marred and broken by a selfish woman and a worthless boy F"
" Not necessarily marred, my dearest," said he, " God only knows why my
whole plan of life should be thus laid in ruins, but I-Ie can make it a true one,
even though joy is slain." I-Ie spoke of sacred things with simple manliness,
without a sign of false shame or constraint. " I know this is my duty-it is too
plainly marked for doubt-and I mifzszf do it. If I fail now, no matter what comes
to me of fame or fortune, I should feel ' my honor rooted in dishonor,' and you
would be the first to urge me on, with ringing words, if you thought me waver-
ingf' The sun was getting low when they rose from that long interview, and
turned their faces homeward. At the gate, Malcolm paused.
" I can't go in,---yes, I will of course -you must not be left to explain to
Aunt Serena, but Dorothy, one thing-you two will surely go to Norfolk with
me in the morning ?"
" Wfhy do you even ask me, Malcolm P You f?1Z0'ZL' I willf,
. So Dorothy went in to make her simple preparations, while Malcolmis brave
lips recounted once again their sorrowful story.
Next evening found Malcolm in conference with his stepmother and her son,
while Dorothy and Miss March were with friends in another portion of the city.
It was hard indeed, in the man who sat there with such stern gravity, arranging
plans with iron self-control, to recognize the buoyant, happy youth of twenty-
four hours ago. I-Ie looked years older, and his face was lined with pain. Even
the careless heart of his step-brother momentarily recognized the fact, although
the mother's idolatrous folly had so smoothed and softened his crime and the
entailed sacrifice, that it was impossible he should appreciate adequately his own
position, or that which he had thrust upon others.
" I say, old fellow," he said, as he sat on the edge of a table, carelessly swing-
ing one foot, his face, faultless in feature and coloring, as izzsofzzcimzt and gay as
though arranging for a pleasure party. " I say, old fellow, you are taking this
deucedly hard, I 'll swear, but don't pull such a long face, man! By love! a fel-
low may as well be hung at once, as to go about with judge and executioner both
rolled into one." Malcolm's eyes flashed. " Do you remember what nurse
Barbara used to say, George ?" he said slowly, " when people praised your rose-
leaf skin and golden hair, and called you ' angel ' and ' darling ?' Nurse Barbara
would say, ' Master George is like a peach, that has a stone for a heartf "
Mrs Carruthers colored angrily-that any one should dare reflect upon her
darling! And now, when he was in such 'L troublef' Cfor so she designated to
him and others, his dastardly murder of a man who had only given him his just
punishment for cheating at cardsl. " Really, Malcolm," she said, resentfully, " I
think you need not add to our misery by hard words. George isn't the first man
who has taken life to avenge an insult, though you do seem to be looking for the
brand of Cain upon himf,
Malcolm rose without replying. K' I believe everything is settled, I will not
see you again until we meet at the appointed place."
" VVhere are you going now ?'-asked George, briskly.
" I am going to say goodbye to Dorothy and Miss March," he replied,
"I believe I 'll go with you. It is perfectly dark, and I will never be seen
or noticed in this coat," tapping the breast of a much too large and heavy garment
he had assumed for the purpose of disguise. " At any rate, there is a little ex-
citement about it, and it is so cursed slow in this hole."
" Georgelu cried his mother, her voice trembling with wounded feeling,
" leave me folziglzt--the last you may spend with me for years ?"
" Oh, well, Materf, he said, kissing her carelessly, " we have talked out by
this time, surely." '
Malcolnrs face quivered with the tremendous effort he made for self-control.
K' Don't dare to come to Captain Eyeres! I shall wash my hands of the
whole business if you do." VVithout waiting for a reply he abruptedly left the
In the dusky fragrance of Captain Eyeres' flower-filled library, Malcolm and
Dorothy stood, hand in hand, with faces white and drawn, but in their eyes the
dauntless courage of the truly brave-those who have battled against self and
won the fight.
" Don't fail me, dearest," he said, 'K be brave, and I will not say ' be true,'
for you are truth itself. ' Noblesse obligcf you know! I think the Doctor's
noblest work has been raising the standard of morality among his boys, and
teaching us the undying worth of honor. It makes it easier to leave you 'l-his
voice faltered-" God bless you, dear. I feel we shall be happy, some day. Trust
and wait !"
The words had scarcely passed his lips, when there was a light step in the
dim room, and the sound of suppressed laughter.
. Malcolm turned violently. "Ge01'gc! is it possible P" " I-Iush! hush! Mal-
colm, this house has been shadowed all day. There has been a man at each
corner whenever I looked out. Oh how did he get here, and how will we etfer
get him out PM She wrung her hands desperately. Malcolm stood as if stunned,
looking first at one and then at the other. George seemed to awake to a sense
of his own danger, while over his light and careless soul there at last rushed some
sense of his awful crime, and of its terrible consequences. Even then, though,
self was uppermost. " You-you don't think there is any danger, do you ?"
his voice shaking.
" I-Iush! here are two of the men I saw, coming up the front wayf' said
Dorothy, in a low whisper.
" Be perfectly' still, Georgef' said Malcolm, in measured tones, K' donlt at-
tempt to run. I 'll see what can be done."
" But they may take me-what then P"
" Then take the consequences of your own mad folly," said.his brother,
sternly, " but don't dare rung in this light, it might cause Dorothy to be injured."
just then the outlines of two dark forms were dimly visible at the open window-
the electric lights flamed up.
" George Carruthers, I arrest you for thelf' There was a sudden mad
rush to the back window, a pistol levelled straight at the back of George Car-
ruthers' curly head. Malcolm flung himself in front of the boy, and threw up
his arm in deprecation. The motion was misunderstood, or disregarded, there
was a flash-a cry-and Malcolm Carruthers fell heavily.
His eyes opened soon, and fell upon Dorothy, leaning over him, his head
upon her breast. I-Ie smiled, then tried to speak, but the effort was too much.
There was a faint sigh, a look of yearning love-and so, with a parting thought
for the man he had saved, the woman he had loved, the promise he had kept, a
great and tender soul went out upon the waters of that unknown sea, whose waves
wash the boundaries of the eternal city. C. B. P.

A LEGEND OI: LCVEUS LEAD.
HE autumn sun was slowly sinking to rest behind the massive mountain
peaks of the Alleghanies, casting its parting rays on the rough mountain
crags, which stood under its effulgent coloring robbed of their grim and
awful solemnity, and took upon themselves an almost pleasant look under such a
gentle influence. The leaves of the forest, already brown and golden tinted by
autumn's delicate touch, were made even more beautiful by the soft, mellow,
golden sunlight. The sky above appeared like a limitless ocean expanse, the
blue and white, and gray of the clouds blending in perfect harmony appeared as
far-away islands in this beautiful sea, and, as the sun sunk lower and lower, the
red and gold mingled with the clouds, and the ever-changing, ever more beautiful
scene appeared like a fairy-land in its splendor. Far in the Wfest, the sun him-
self was seen, appearing as a huge ball of nreg and, as he touched- the horizon, it
seemed as though the whole earth would take fire from the contact.
V, 'Un these last moments of the dying day, a slight rustling of the dead leaves
and twigs disturbed the death-like,-stillness, and two young people came slowly
arm in arm through the forest. They conversed in soft, low tones, lest even the
trees might hear and reveal the thoughts of their hearts, and why should not the
trees too have curiosity to know who these intruders of their domain were, for
they were certainly an uncommon couple.
The youth was an Indian, handsome and stalwart, with sinews as strong and
firm as the iron in the bosom of the earth on which he trod. He was dressed in the
full attire of a chief of the tribe to which he belonged, for indeed he belonged to
a family of chiefs, his father being at the head of the nation which occupied the ter-
ritory for many miles around. He was tall and erect, of stately carriage and
lofty mien, every feature o.f his face well-formed and sharply definedg his long
straight jet-black hair fell gracefully over the back of his neck, his brown face and
dark eyes all showed a character as noble, as fearless and brave as any chieftain
of his manly race, yet lacked the treachery and blood-thirsty cruelty of many of
them. Any one looking at this monarch of the forest-wilds could not suppress
a feeling of admiration, nor resist the magnetic influence of the piercing eyes
which revealed the gentle, kind spirit resting beneath the threatening feathers and
war paint on the exterior.
In what marked contrast to this mountain brave was his companion! She
was a girl of apparently eighteen summers, although life in the American moun-
tains had given her the experience of one much older, as fair as the hawthorn
bud, and simply but neatly dressed in white. Her long golden hair hung freely
in the wind, and little ringlets fell bewitchingly over her fair forehead. Beneath
the gently arched eyebrows were eyes which had caught down the blue of the
sky above, and which beamed with gentleness, meekness, and tender affection.
The two lovers-for such they were, no matter how strange it might seem-
walked arm in arm in the evening stillness. The delicate, perfectly shaped, snow-
white, little hand was clasped in the strong, brown, large one, and when he spoke
she tossed her pretty head back, and looked up into his face all covered with the
hideous paint of the savage. But there was nothing in that face to cause terror
for her, and with child-like simplicity, she had no thought of harm, fully trusting
him whom she loved-even if he was of a savage tribe. '
Elizabeth Darringer was the daughter of an English noblernan, who, having
lost favor at court, determined to try his fortune in the newly-discovered conti-
nent, and, together with a few companions. crossed the sea, pushed into the moun-
tain regions of Virginia, and there established a small colony. The Indians,
who dwelt around thehumble habitationsof these brave white men, as soon as
they saw them encroaching on their territory, became very vicious and trouble-
some, and many times the whole settlement had been nearly massacred. They
had sworn' vengeance on the " pale-faces," and were only awaiting the oppor-
tunity for wreaking it upon them.
, It so happened one morning in October that Darringer and the other men
of the little colony were away, some distance from their homes, on the side of the
river, preparing to launch a small boat which they had built. Elizabeth was left
alone at her home, performing her household duties. She was sitting on the
door-step, sewing, and humming an old Scotch love-song as she worked, when,
chancing to raise her head, she saw a sight which made her blood run cold-first
the head-feathers, then a pair of sly, piercing eyes directed upon her, and then,
upon looking closer through the pile of brush concealing his body, she saw clearly
the painted face of an Indian warrior!
Her first impulse was to shriek out for-help and run into the house, biit,
as she caught the look from the eyes of the savage, something irresistible seemed
to take hold of her, and she could not move. She could only remain still and
silent, as if under the influence of some charm. Before she could gain control
of herself, the Indian had risenfrom his concealment and, approaching with a
slow, graceful movement, bowed himself humbly at her feet. She was amazed
at such conduct. Her fear changed to embarrassment, she felt that she had never
before been in such a peculiar position or had such a peculiar feeling, and she
The Indian, however, soon broke the stillness. I-Ie had picked up from the
settlers whom he had heard, enough English to make himself partially under-
stood and, with the assistance of signs, he told her he had been sent by his tribe
as a spy, and how he had been attracted by her singing, and, hiding in the brush
in front of the house door, had been able to watch her every movement, and had
so admired her beauty that he had-. Ch, how silently love works! If there be
no language, no means of making signs, still " Love will find away." This war-
like savage with all his war-paint, his deadly bow and arrows, had been unable
to defend himself from the tiny darts of the innocent little baby spriteg and she,
the daughter of an Englishman, she so small, so gentle, so utterly defenseless,
could not but admire the manly, handsome, noble youth before her, even if he
were a savage. She not only admired him, but she felt another sensation also,
she did not know what it was, perhaps it was what some call-love!
Thus had the affection sprung up between these two so entirely different
people, thus had her life and her fatherfs life, and his friends' lives been spared.
After this, many times came the Indian wooer to visit his fair inamorata, under
whose teaching he rapidly learned to speak English, and, as often, he returned
and reported to the other warriors around their wigwams, that it would be unwise
to attack the whites. Finally, however, their thirst for the scalp of the white
man, and their restless desire to have vengeance upon the intruders on their
hunting-grounds became so great, that they grew impatient and began among
themselves to suspect something against their fellow-chief. After holding coun-
cil in his absenge several times, they at last decided upon a plan. One of their
number was detailed to follow Black Wfing-for such was our hero's name-and
see what he did when he went on his customary visit to the white colony, osten-
sibly to ascertain the strength of the settlers and to report on the advisability of
Accordingly, when Black Wfing set out the next morning as usual, another
brave followed close in his tracks. The unsuspecting lover, as was his custom,
met his fair sweetheart a short distance from the house, and the interview was held
directly in the sight of the watching chief. I-Ie, not understanding English,
could only draw conclusions from what he saw, and so, returning to the camp, he
made his report. The whole council was thrown into the greatest excitement
and uproar by the revelations of their spyg and it was decided to remain silent
concerning it until the next day, and then send their wisest man, Grey Qwl, who
understood the foreign language better than any of the others, in the hope that
he might unravel the mystery of the actions of Black Wing.
So, accordingly, next morning Grey Owl followed, heard and understood .a
good portion of the conversation, returned and related it. Such was the indigna-
tion occasioned by the announcement that one of their number had violated all
the principles and laws of their tribe and was thus wooing a hated " pale-face "
maiden, that they at once determined to punish him by death as soon as he re-
They did not perceive that during their council they had been watched and
overheard by an Indian maiden, who herself had always loved-as Indians love-
Black Wiiigl 'Without stopping to debate any interests of her own in her mind,
she resolved what to do. She would meet Black 'Wing on his return that evening
and warn him of his danger. This she did, and when the brave fellow found him-
self discovered, he was almost driven to despair, and wandered around in the
forest like a madman, neither knowing nor caring whither he went. Thus he
continued during the whole night and the following day, neither eating nor sleep-
ing, and in this state he was, when he was awakened to his senses again. He
heard a voice, a familiar voice, calling to him in English, and he almost involun-
tarily answered it in his usual manner.
Elizabeth was walking near her home, and she met her lover.
So we ind them, at the evening sunset, walking arm in arm and hand in hand
conversing in low tones, as they passed through the silent forest. He told her of
his discovery, that its penalty was death as soon as he was captured. He felt that
Hie was safe there so near the white settlement, for a time at least, and that he
would live close by in the woods until he could escape to another region.
As they walked, they came to a rugged bluff, whose sides towered majesti-
cally Hlld almost perpendicularly from the river far below. They clambered some
way down the cliff, and then seated themselves on the roots of a tree growing
among the rocks.
The picture presented to their view, as they looked out over the mountains
and valley, was an ideal one. The tall gray cliffs on either side rose as mighty
sentincls, standing in all the awful sublimity of nature. The rushing river lay
far below, and the last rays of the sinking sun stooped and kissed the merry
waters, and they sparkled as gems imbedded in the green carpet of the valley.
The scene was a lovely and inspiring one, and one such that even an Indian's
" untutored mind U could appreciate, and even an Indianls savage breast could
respond to with emotions of love and tenderness! They admired the beautiful
sight, and were so lost in their admiration that they forgot their trouble and talked
on and on.
Their theme was the ever-new, never-ending " old, old story," and it called
up a variety of subjects. He at times grew eloquent, his thoughts were so beau-
tiful! He told her of the belief of his people, of the Great Spirit, of the Happy
Hunting Ground to which he hoped to go after death, to have her with him for-
ever and ever. He compared the dying day to the death of man. It was dying,
but, in death, how glorious! At its birth men rise to pay it homage, when it
sinks to rest, they too seek rest. The sun never dies, it lives forever, it is only the
day that perishes. So with man, his soul lives forever, it is only his earthly
tabernacle which decays. Another comes to-take his place, like one day succeeds
another. The soul, like the sun, never needs a successor. And so he reasoned,
and so she listened, her head on his shoulder, her hand in his. They were lost to
everything but their own emotions.
Suddenly an arrow struck violently the rock near them, rebounded and fell
below! Black Wiiig' started, with a cry of alarm! He hastily surveyed his sur-
roundings. Looking up in the direction from which the arrow came, he saw the
rugged face of a member of his tribe. Then he heard a yell. He knew what that
meant, for now he saw ten other Indians in full war-colors leap upon the rock
not forty feet above them! He cast a hasty glance below. The river Howed
tranquilly in its green bed far, far away. There was no escape. The way back
up the cliff was blocked by drawn bows. If they remained where they were,
death-or even worse-would surely follow.
Elizabeth took in the situation at a glance. She looked down at the waters
beneath, then into the face of her lover. It was sufficient. He understood her
wishes. Taking one last fond look into the eyes of his sweetheart, he clasped
her gently to his breast and wound his strong arms about her body.
" The Great Spirit will take us, little VVhite Dove, be not afraid !" he whis-
" I am satisfied. We are together," she answered, and lifting her in his arms
he leaped far out from the cliff, and they fell far, far below in the rushing waters
of the river !
The sound of the splash reached the ears of the startled and amazed Indians
above, who, after looking down at the river awhile, turned away, and, with an oft-
repeated and signiicant " Ugh! Ugh!,' slowly disappeared in the surrounding
Thus Elizabeth Darringer and her Indian wooer were not separated even in
death, and thus the beautiful spot so familiarly known as Loverls Leap won its
name, and will stand throughout the coming ages an imperishable monument to
that love which knows no fear, and whose mysteries are past finding out.

N a bright May day, as we stroll through the green pastures, and by the
still waters of fair Wliite Thorn, it is not difficult to trace the origin of
A its name, dotted over the emerald meadows, in spaces between the noble
trees,we see great clusters of the White Thorn, clad in robes of purest snow-their
thorns for swords-they seem nature's guardian angels to the place, to ward off
all that is not bright and sweet from this peaceful Eden. Standing on the lawn,
when the wind blows toward the house, the subtle, haunting perfume pervades
the atmosphere, a concentration of all woods' odors, sweet, vague, yet penetrat-
ing. ln the days when lfVhite Thorn was young, there was once given a dinner
party, at the house of Senator Allen T. Caperton, a brother of Mrs. Preston, in
the course of the entertainment, toasts were called for, when the Hon. J. Randolph
Tucker rose, and proposed that Colonel Preston's new home should be christened
Caperton, in honor of its mistress. The suggestion was greeted with applause,
and accepted by Colonel Preston in his wife's name and his own, but Mrs. Pres-
ton shrank from the seeming self-assertion, and with her keen and sympathetic
insight into the nature and characteristics of her surroundings, she gave it its
The 'White Thorn house was built by Colonel james Francis Preston, and he
and his wife Qnee Sarah Caperton, of Union, W. Va.j entered into residence there
On the death of Governor James Patton Preston, his estate was divided
between his three sonsg Hon. William Ballard Preston, as the oldest son, taking
possession of Smithfield, the venerable home of many generations, while to
Colonel Robert Preston fell " Solitude," now a portion of the Virginia Polytech-
nic Institute, and the other end of the estate became the property of Colonel james
F. Preston. In earlier days, " Solitude " must have been an expressive name for
any country home in Southwest Virginia, but to those whose good fortune it was
to enjoy the princely hospitality of Colonel Robert Preston and his wife, it seems
a strange misnomer.
Wliile the Wliite Thorn house can lay no claims to antiquity, there are many
stories of interest told in connection with the magnificent groves and limpid
springs, which go to make the farm one of the most beautiful and valuable in Vir-
ginia. Many a bygone night have the woods echoed to howl of wolf and the yell
of wild cat, the delicate, small figure of Governor Preston's city-bred wife has
often stood, framed in the old Smithfield door, gazing down the waste of uncul-
tivated land which now forms the lovely meadows lying between the two homes-
listening with a kind of awful fascination to sounds so weird and strange, to one
reared among city sounds and scenes. That frail, diminutive body held a master
mind and an iron will, and in spite of a life into which a certain element of hard-
ship necessarily entered, she lived to be revered and beloved, by the people among
whom her long life was spent, and died to leave a name honored wherever known.
To the wife of Colonel James Preston was given the pleasure and privilege
of making the wilderness blossom as a rose. l'VllCl'1 she and her husband went to
live at Wliite Thorn, the house stood in the midst of a bare expanse of field-two
trees there were, to break the dreary outlook, and no more: but innate love of
flowers and trees, energy and good taste, soon wrought a change so great as to
seem the work of magic. Not a tree in the grounds, but was selected by her, its
position chosen by her, and planted under her own direction, the orchard bears
testimony to her thrift and judgment, while the quaint old garden, its broad walks
bordered with all the old time flowers and simples so dear to our hearts, all speak
of her, the directing spirit of the place.
There is a story told of a raid made by the Indians, in the days when Smith-
field was a fort, when its inmates lived in hourly fear of an attack, which last was
of only too frequent occurrence. Mr. Vlfilliam Preston was harvesting on that
portion of the estate known as VVhite Thorng he saw smoke and flames issuing
from Smithfield, and knew the Indians were upon them. I-Ie and his harvesters
attempted to escape,but were seen and overtaken, with the single exception of Mr.
Preston, who avoided capture by a fortunate accident, in his headlong flight he
jumped upon a huge log, slipped and fell. He gave himself up for lost as an
Indian was in direct pursuit, the intuitive law of self-preservation, however,
impelled him to creep as far as possible under the shelter of the great treeg he lay
there liembling, every moment expecting death or capture. The Indian came
on in swift pursuit, stepped on the same great log, passed over Mr. Preston and
went on his way, leaving behind him a much surprised, but very thankful man.
White Thorn is not without its ghostly visitant, as is only in keeping with
most " Old Virginia " homes. There are many who claim to have seen " The
Man in Red " Knot the red manb wending his solitary way through the " I-Iunter's
Gate H to the wood beyond. Why he could not rest in his grave, but spent his
time in such unprofitable wanderings, history sayeth not-however, on summer
nights, when the moon floods the sleeping meadows, transforming the little
stream into a shining pathway, leading to some divine, far land, where all is peace,
when the ceaseless voice of the waters mingle with the thrilling, pathetic, flute-
note of the whippoorwill, all blending with the myriad, mystic voices of the night
-there are worse things than walking amid the stillness of earth's quiet places,
through the dim aisles of nature's great cathedral-so it may well be, he comes
in peace, not penance.
The lives of these three brothers and their families form a unique instance of
domestic concord. No rift in the lute of kindred love and sympathy ever marred
the peaceful harmony, and when death entered the little circle it was to draw
closer the hearts that ached in mutual bereavement. r
Visitors to VVhite Thorn grew familiar with the sight of a massive, brass-
bound desk, which was placed on a table in the dining-room, strangers were
always attracted, and eager to learn its history, but that was rather disappointing,
since nothing was known beyond the fact that it was originally the property of
an English colonel, who had been captured in Canada, during the war of 1812,
by Governor james Patton Preston, who, on his return home, brought the desk
with him. But there came at last, one whose vision was more keen and accurate
than most, his practised eye soon saw there was space not accounted for, in the
open receptacles of the desk, and he at once proceeded to investigate. Witli some
difficulty he finally brought to light a secret compartment beneath the open space,
and several small secret drawers-all filled with papers. Witli delightful excite-
ment, and yet, with reverent hands, we drew them forth, worn, discolored, cov-
ered with the dust of more than eighty years, yet in most instances, decipherable
-while, so carefully had the letters been preserved, and copies taken of all replies,
that with but little trouble, we were able to weave a connected history.
The original owner of the desk was one, john I-Iighmore Jeboult, ensign in
the English Army, and, according to letters from his superior officers, " a young
gentleman of birth and breedingf, I-Iis commission is there, a very imposing
looking document, with many letters of more or less interest. Two there are
from his sweetheart, which, for innocent, sweet coquetry, are unsurpassed. I-Iis
mother, having made a visit to London, on her return home, writes her son her
impressions of his lady-love, she says " Her auburn hair and beautiful blue eyes
are beyond anything I have ever seen-and I think I never saw so white a skin-
except when your name was mentioned, when she turned a mos-t beautiful pink."
I-Ier name was as pretty as she seems to have been-Eleanor Millicent Hayter-
and she must have been as gentle and good, as she was fair. In one of the little
secret drawers is a lock' of bright hair, tied with a tiny gold wire, and folded in a
paper on which, in the quaint stilted style of the day, is written a verse of poetry,
telling of faithful love. But the " old, old story " ended the proverbial way-
indeed from the first their love failed to " run smooth." A slanderous tongue
made mischief, and his ship received sailing orders for Canada before he could
obtain leave of absence to go to London and endeavor to heal the breach. There
is a very disconsolate letter to his mother, in which he implores her to see Miss
I-Iayter, and clear him from the unjust aspersions. It was, doubtless, to plead his
cause that she undertook the journey to London, which followed so soon afterg
and yet, if such is the case, it is certainly singular that in the first letter written to
her son, after her return home, the only reference to Miss I-Iayter is that already
quoted, relative to her personal appearance. Perhaps she had the marvelous dis-
cretion to feel that K' silence is golden "-or to let facts speak for themselves. That
she succeeded in her mission is obvious, for the next letter received by Ensign
jeboult was a most demure and proper little note, from Miss I-Iayter, " introduc-
ing a friend,', and ending-incidentally-with a few words telling him " how all
his friends had missed him and longed for his return." To read between the lines
was not difhcult to the clear eye of love, andihis reply to her little olive branch was
full of triumph and eager hope for the future. It seems a little strange that any
one could sit down and deliberately copy such an epistle, but we can only be
thankful for Mr. Ieboult's methodical habits, since it gives us a glimpse of as
manly and tender a heart as one could wish to know. The last letter of the series
is from our hero's colonel-a Scotchman, Galbraith Gordon Friend, and is written
to Ieboult's father in England-this gives us the finale to the pretty idyl. Colonel
Friend tells of jeboult's death upon the held, and of how nobly and gallantly he
gave his life for his country. Colonel Friend endsby saying he will place his
letter with jeboultls private papers, in the secret compartment of the latter's desk
fthe key to which he gave Colonel Friend, when he confided the desk to his
triend's carej and will take the nrst opportunity to send the whole to England.
Then followed the capture of Colonel Friend, and the confiscation of the
desk, with that off1cer's personal effects.
So, to the waiting parents and sweetheart, his letters never came-and it may
well be, their bitter grief was never soothed in this life b knowledge of his daunt-

"To the old, sorrow is sorrow, to the young, sorrow is despair.
Perhaps his parents, sustained by remembering how soon their pain would
cease, found resignation through their perfect trust in God, which is seldom
vouchsafed to youth-but who can tell what agonies of suspense that poor girl
knew? What heartsick hoping against hope deferred-what weary waiting-
what yearning prayers-what anguished disappointment? Who knows but the
" man in red " may be the shade of the young English officer, still clothed in the
uniform he wore so gallantly, drawn back to earth until such time' as his letters
should be released from their long obscurity ?
Let us hope Colonel Friend returned to England in safety, and, that to hope-
lessness succeeded at length, pride in his splendid bravery and peace in his peace-

Not far from where my valley lilies blow.
Turn down the path where clamask roses greet you,
Flanked by rock lilies, rearing great, green stalk,
Pass this way, where the apple blossoms greet you,
And muse with me within "My Lacly's YValk."

I see the orchard .in its springtide splendor,
Clasped in the emerald crescent of the wood,
Where many a gallant oak in stately splendor,
Keeps watch and Ward where gloom and silence brood. '
Far spreads the glowing -beauty of the meadows, '
A jewel set within ajewelled rim
Wl1e1'e, fiashing fair, the sunshine blends with shadows,
And soft o'er all the golden hazes swim.

The song of bird, and tuneful waters blendir
Will echo ever in my heart I know.
A DIQECOCIOLIS DAT.
' ' CDW' give us a song. You must have a melodious voicef' said Bob
Mann, as the Sophomores crowded around the "' rat."
" Here, Bob, set her up on this old stool," said Harry Dabney,
thrusting forward a dilapidated three-legged affair. '
Then several of them took the poor victim up bodily and perched him upon
the stool. '
" Donlt he look sanctimonious, though ? He 's mamma's little darling-
yes, he is," chimed in another. '
" Well, what are you going to give us ? It had better be a hymn-look at
those pious liquid orbs. Yes, let it be ' jesus, Lover of My Soul' " Jack Ran-
dolph's handsome face flushed and his bright eyes flashed.
" Ah ! look at him, goody-goody-sissy-how 's granny, dear ?" Jack's
fists clenched in his pockets, but he raised his head a little, cleared his throat and
began in a sweet, rich tenor to sing the hymn. There was a hush among the boys
as Jack went on. His voice was his forte, and he held them thrilled. When he
had finished, one of the boys said, "Well, that 'll do for to-night. You sing pretty
well for a " rat." VVe 'll train you up a bit and put you in the Glee Club."
After Jack was dismissed, the boys held a consultation. We 'll have to find
some way to squelch him," said Tom Marshall. " He kinder got the best of us
to-night. Let is appoint Bill Simmons and Bob Mann on a committee to arrange
a scheme to subdue him."
" All right. I move that Bill and Bob be appointed on a ' squelching com4
mittee,' " said another. ' '
" I second the motion," answered Harry.
"Well, as the motion's carried, we 'd better adjourn."
A day or so later another meeting was held, and the committee's plans wer'
laid open for consideration. The plot was this: They were to get up a grand
expedition to make a raid upon a neighboring farmer's turnip patch. Jack was to
overhear the whisperings, and be invited to join them, apparently to keep him
from " putting the Faculty on to it." Then they were to send some fellows ahead
dressed as I' hayseeds," with guns Qloaded with blank cartridgesj. " And, if we
do11't scare the very stuffin' out of that ' rat,' you may have my suspender but-
tons !" said Bob.
" I didn't know you had such a head on you, Bobf' said some of the others.
Friday was chosen for the adventure, and late that evening all things were in
readiness. jack had bitten well at the bait. They had him this time, sure. A
beautiful moon added inspiration to the frolic.
" Be sure you have the right guns, boys," said Bob, as he bade farewell to two
queer-looking figures in large straw hats, who were creeping out by the back
" Yes, indeed, no trouble about that. So long ! we ill see you later," and the
two seedy farmers stole off with a little chuckle.
Presently dark figures might have been seen gliding softly down various cor-
ridors, out through the rear hall window, and stealthily through the garden gate,
over to a spot behind the wall, which had been chosen as a place of rendezvous.
In a little while they were all there. Quite a merry party they made stumbling
over the rough country roads, and there was not a livelier, merrier one among
thefn than jack Randolph. " He 'll change his tune soon," thought some of them
as they neared the fateful turnip patch. This patch was just on the edge of a
corntield in which the farmers were secluded. The boys crept silently along and
presently they all stooped clown and began grubbing forturnips. just then there
was a rustle in the corn. " Hush ! what was that ? U said .lack in a frightened
tone. Then came a wild, " Halloa ! who 's that after my turnips l "-a stampede
among the boys-turnips flew in every direction-bang l-bang l-more tramp-
ling of corn and scampering of boys-another report-a flash, the farmers were
nearer now, then a wild agonized cry of " O, God ! " rang out on the clear night
air. The boys turned in their flight just in time to see Jack Randolph fall back
into the corn !
" Gosh ! boys, what 's happened ?" cried one of them as they all hastened to
Iack's side. The farmers were there before them. One of them was holding the
poor boy's helpless head upon his knee, while the other was pulling open his coat
which was torn and damp. l1Vhat a sight ! His shirt was covered with blood nl
How ghastly he looked in the pale moonlight ! Not a man uttered a sound, but
they only gazed at one another in helpless horror. The long black shadows of
the corn, with their curving slender arms, wavered back and forth, seeming with
their weird, fantastic shapes to mock, to accuse, to condemn them. Now and
then, when a breeze passed over the held, there was a faint rustling among the
corn as if it, too, were trembling in ghostly dread of what lay before it. The boys'
" Ch ! " moaned lack, and his lips moved.
" Listen, Bob, he 's trying to say something ! "
A' Tell-tell-her," then he seemed to lose consciousness again.
" Run for a doctor, Harry," said Bob, and away dashed two of the boys to
run three miles without pausing a moment.
Presently lack stirred again. This time they caught something about,
" mother." They made a bed of their coats and laid him tenderly upon it. Gne
of them ran half a mile to a spring and brought water in his hat to bathe his head
and wound. Wfhat if he should die there P They had murdered him ? They
must have gotten the wrong guns after all !
just as they were about to bathe his head, again jack raised up, opened his
bright eyes and said, 'K Here, donit waste all that nice, cool water on my head.
Give me a drink. I'm thirsty." '
KK But your side, Jack," they cried in astonishment, KK arenit you-! " , ,
KK Oh, pshaw ! " said he, sitting up, 'K you boys think I 'm a great fool. I 've
been to college before. I had this same trick played on me once in Richmond."
So saying, he took a bottle of red ink from his pocket, tilting it, and letting the
contents trickle down through his fingers. KKIt looks right bloody, don't it ?"
And Jack laughed-a merry, boyish laugh. KK You did your part beautifully boys,
and, really, if I should meet these two on the road in the day time," he said, turn-
ing to the farmers, 'KI should take them for sure enough K hayseedsf K'
KK lfVell, I 'll be jabbered ! " said Bill Simmons, K' if we won't have to give up
hazing after this ! This is one on us !" So they all shook hands with Jack,
telling him he was a line chap, and they ,cl stick by him hereafter. jack didn't
crow over them either. I-Ie saw he was hero, and let it rest there.
On the way home they KK jumped on " Jack for a story. KK Did I ever tell you
about my ex-mother-in-law P"
KK VVho on earth was she F"
K' Well,,' said Jack, looking very pathetic, K' I was in love once. Yes, I loved
Kitty awfully." I
KK Don't you love her now ? I'
No," answered jack, very decidedly. 1
KK Why ? "
K' VVell, I was a little shaver and so was Kit. She was a tiny creature with
great black eyes. I used to carry her books from school g but-K'
KK But what ? "
KK She had a mother," said jack.
KK Well, that was quite natural,wasn' t it ? I'
K' No-no, it wasnlt natural for any one to have a mother like that."
KK Wliat did she do P"
KK You 'd better ask what she didn't do ! I-Iere is one little incident which
will give you an idea of the rest. She was a queer, K old timy ' little woman with
eyes like Kittyis, only hers had a kind of glitter in them that filled me with horror.
One day I went home from school with Kitty, and she said, K lVIamma's having
some papering done to-day.'
KK ' That 's nicef said I. K Vifho selected the paper ? '
KK K She did, and I hope she will like it when its up.'
KK Wlien we reached the gate, a strange sight met my eyes. There was the
old girl, ruflles, white cap and all, out in the front yard, shaking her fist at a ter-
rified-looking man who was standing at the parlor window. K No you shan't
come out ! ' she shrieked, Kyou shan't budge till you take every scrap of it down l '
She was blazing ! I dared not speak to her, but we learned from the almost pet-
rified servants that, upon inspecting the job and not being pleased, she flew out,
slammed and locked the door, vowing that he should not leave till it was all taken
down. I pitied the poor man, and, after she had gone in, I found a ladder and
placed it softly against the window. He was just in the act of making his
escape, when-ugh! here came a bucket of slimy paste ruining us both. We
fled together, and through a clammy, sticky film of that sickening oozy liquid, I
could faintly discern the old lady, at the parlor window, gesticulating wildly, and
forbidding me ever to venture there again. I didnlt ! "
" And Kitty P" r
" Somehow I never did feel fond of Kit after that. Her eyes were too much
like the old lady's ! U
" So that 's why you call her your ex-mother-in-law .
K' Yes," sighed Jack. " It might have been. I shall never cease to be grate-
ful to that paperhanger for bringing me to my senses. Even now I have a great
tenderness for papferhangers wherever I see them."
They were nearing college now. " I-Iere comes my doctor," said Jack. And
so it was, and the two frightened boys were with him.
" I 'm afraid I 'll never get you two to run three miles for me again," said
Jack. A p
The doctor laughed over it very heartily, and said he was glad the boys had
met their match at last. Randolph, as the boys called him now, became quite
popular after that, and many a fellow wished he could do so well in his classes.
Time wore on, and the commencement was approaching.
"Say, boys l" said Jack one day. " I 'm going to invite my girl to the
" lfVho F Kitty ?"
" No, the girl I really-lovef'
" Does she love you ?"
4' You bet she does ! "
" You. seem pretty sure of it, old chap. Don't fool yourself. VVomen are
Fan isn't," maintained Jack.
" Are you engaged P
I-Ias she said she loved you P "
Don't get personal over there. She loves me to distraction, though, I 'in
sure. None of you fellows need aspire even to a smile," and here jack mused in
a dreamy way as if he alone had the key to some marvelous hidden treasure.
" Well, I bet we can," said one of the boys.
" I dare you to try," said Jack, defiantly.
" All right, you won't get the best of us this time." '
So the Finals came and with them pretty Fanny Edwards. Jack wore a
proud, triumphant air as he drove her up from the station. There were many
boys accidentally loafing on the campus, and quite a number of heads appeared at
the sedate-looking windows of the main college building as they passed. Each
man firmly resolved that he would have more than one dance with the girl Jack
was so conceited about. Each one, too, wanted to have a better look at the dark
brown eyes peeping so roguishly from under the Huffy hat.
'T was the liveliest Commencement they had had for years. " Little Fancy
Edwardsf, as they called her, was the belle of the season. There were hay-rides,
dances, tennis contests, drives, horseback rides. Nevei had a girl had so
gorgeous a time. She was showered with flowers'
At first they-did it on Jacks account, but when they knew her better, it was
all for her. Several of them were desperately in love.
In all the gaiety there was always a place for jack-" Jack must have his
They wondered if she knew what Jack thought. Harry Dabney lost his heart
completely, and he could not help feeling that she liked him-just a little. Une
night he made up his mind that he could not stand this suspense any longer. He
must tell her he loved her and find out about jack. just as they finished a waltz,
he leaned over and said, " XVon't you take a little walk outside ?"
" If Jack says sO,'l she said, a little nervously.
" lfVhat in the-what has Jack to do with it ? I' he demanded, his blood boil-
ing with jealousy. -
'I Lots !" said a voice behind them, 'K she's my sister l"
" Your what P"
" Sister," said jack, calmly. H live happened to have the same mother and
father, you know."
" But her name is Edwards I "
" Oh, nog I just prevaricated a little. I only wanted to put you boys on your
mettle so you 'd be extra nice to Fan. She 's such a good little sisterf, he said,
putting one arm affectionately around her.
" Sold again ! H exclaimed I-Iarry, but with great relief beaming in his face.
" Well, may I take Miss Randolph for a little stroll ?"
jack looked at him seriously for a moment. 1' Yes," he said, presently, and he
pressed his friend's hand. .
So they wandered off to a pretty little arbor, and many of the boys were hunt-
ing for Fancy for the next dance, while the news fled swiftly around of how jack
had fooled them a third time.
Finally, they came in, looking very happy. Several of the boys rushed to
meet them, claiming the last waltzg but she shook her head shyly, 4' I 'm sorry,
but I've promised this to Har-er-to Mr.-Dabneyf' she said, blushing.

The cry of a famishing brother appeased with a crust,

And the galloping hate of a down-trodden man is beat in the dust.
Which are the eviler, women or men? Heaven knows.
Men are the worst, as I think, and are prone to render
The little good of their hearts to the wind that blows,
But evil began, at the Hrst, with the feminine gender.
The flowering bloom of the sex is a fatal gift,
A heritage pregnant with guile, and, sooner or late,
The smothering pain of a blistered heart will rift,
As the long, black shadows split on a rottening gate.
Everything done may be traced to a woman's voice.
She is the cause, and the banner of war is unfurled.
The cry of the human is drowned in a dreadful noiseg
For the hand that rocks the cradle rocks the world.
Civilization is rottening through to the core.
In the grave of the world is buried thc hopes of men.
Bright eyes shine with a baneful light through the elden lore,
As through the cloud-drift, pierces the storm-bird's reaching ken.
Strong Nature is warring with God on the altar-stairs

'T was in Greece that the human mind emerged from the past,
And wreathed the laurel of fame on her own burning breast 5
Vandalist ingers were twined 'round her white throat at last :
The tide of prosperity rolls ever on to the West
Rome rose on the ruins of Greece and hewed her a name.
Over the seas the wild scream of her challenge was heard :
There Virgil strung his lyre to sing Aeneas' fame,
And Cicero shook the Forum with his mighty word.
No paean hath a note so sweet as trampled might's proud moan :
Out ofthe clouds of the North came a reckless horde 5
Great hearts sheathed their swords in broken hearts with a groan 5
Liberty wept from her sunlit heights and followed the sword.
On to the borders of France the sword and Liberty fled.
The ring of a nation's knell was stilled in a winding shroud.
A Corsican hand caught the warlike blade and flourished it over his head.
But the sun, that rose with him when he rose, went down in a cloud.
And the roar of the British lion Hew through the world-
Over the sea and out ofthe foam to the West.
Through the echoing forest the sound was tl1robb'd and hurl'd
Till th' Red Man's baby had leapt from its mother's breast.
A deep-laden boat came freighted out ofthe East:
There were pale-faced men, and they spoke in a strange wild tongue.
The red and the white hand clasped-for a time there was peace.
Then inusketry rattled the leaves--the bow was unstrung.
The restless pine tree whispered its fear in the night:
Like a wind from the Northland shuddered the savage yell.
It followed the shadow that followed the gray-hare's flight,
And sank into silence, anon, in the wild little dell.
The Red Man followed the Wake of the journeying sun,
Nor paused till he smelled the breath of the western wave.
The sad earth sucked at the hearts of her sons undone.
The march to the West, to him, was the march to th' grave.
He shrank from the onward tramp of a 'flint-faced destiny,
And bore his dusky mate to the brow of her native hill.-
There viewed the setting sun of traditional glory,
Sink, quivering warmly, into a deathless thrill.
The white man builded an empire over his grave.
The lamp of science illuminated the land.
The sceptre oflearning was wielded from wave to wave.
And Liberty rested her weary feet on the strand.
But not for long will the sword inactive be 5
For the fate of the world is reached in the march of mind.

And view the "Armageddon" of all human kind.
There isno other world west of the Western world,
And civilization, matured, like apples fall.

He strikes at th' over-ripe Sodom-fruit, bitter as gall.
Disordered chaos is hovering low in the air.
The fog of oblivion ever creeps nigher the light.

The flame of Vathek eating with its crimson, fierce torment,
Till hope, and reason, and name, are charred and black, and dead,
Like mouldered mummy-bodies in the shining Orient.
Many it wretched magdalen is honest in her shame:
One woman sins and suffers while another sins and sighs,
There is no guerdon for the shattered crystal of a name,
Yet mankind lauds the wanton who throws gold dust in its eyes.
The modern woman breathes the breath of the upas tree,
And loves with a guilty love her poison kiss withstood.
As thro' a darkened glass a whited sepulcher we see
That hides the ghastly bones of a murdered womanhood.
And she, the half-world woman-she, who laughs with painted lips-
Whose maniacal merriment goes quiv'ring down to hell ?
She bares her body to the hiss of fury-driven whips :
The great world swings the rope that sounds the message of her knell.

On the cruel flagstone pavement where th' wounded songster fell
Wliile men chase th' nimble nickel thro' th' heart of all th' springs

Avarice, mother of crime, and woman the mother of man :
These are th' curse and th' light of th' world, th' light and th' curse.
Ulotho spins the thread of tate grown woeful weak and wan,
Snarling mongrels bark at others, worse and worse.
But the course of the world is run. From the river of ancient days
The generations of men are come to the western shore.
There will be no revival of th' old Judean days:
We are living in an age beyond which there is nothing more.
IVar is the terrible theme for which men and women will die,
And th' repetition of war since history's earliest morn.
In th' last grand battle of all th' world will sound a startled cry,
When all th' nations wrestle in a wild millennial dawn.
Lives have been sacriiieed, nations have bled for a cause,
Stupendous wars have been waged, and glorious battles won 5
But all th' royal victories that have gained th' world's applause.
In the coming 'LAFl11HgGdCiO11'7 contest will but be as one :
Megiddo stands on Esdraelon, the greatest battlefield :
Josiah warred with Egypt, Barak fought the Canaanites,
Gideon heard the angry arrows ring upon his shield
When he stood against the forces ofthe raging Midianites.
As when at Marathon plain Miltiades brought on his men
Full tilt on the Persian horse, and the archers of Ethiop,
And crying " Bring fire, bring ire," set dame with a deadly bane,
To the ships that held the shattered remnants of a nation's hope.
As when at Thermopylae pass three hundred Spartan braves,
Seorning to await the attack of' Xerxes' mighty band,
Dashed down the steep deiile, and charged to their deathlcss graves
Doing the grandest battle ever waged in any land.
As when the Huns met the Goths. Battle of Solferinol
As when at Herat, Ghenghis Khan destroyed a million lives.
Battle of Valmy! Battle of Towes! Battle of' Borodino!
Battles where defeated men were bound with dungeon gyves.
In greatness of numbers enlisted, in triumph and rout,
All other battles will pale into insignitlcanee 3
And when the two great captains shall have giv'n the battle shout
The gates of hell will tumble at the vast magnificence.

MY COLISIN DOIQGTHY.
ACK Harper and I were class-mates at college, and we were the best sort of
friends. jack was the finest fellow in the world, and made friends
wherever he went. Of course, I had him pay me long visits in the holi-
days. There were only three of us in the family: mother, sister and Ig and after
sister married, the house seemed very quiet. jack was so jolly and good-humored
that he brightened up the house wonderfully, and completely won mother's heart
by the interest with which he listened to her accounts of the exploits of the grand-
children. After the college days were over, jack and I, still as inseparable as ever,
went to the University, together. That was five years ago, during the five years
that have followed, our friendship has grown steadily, and now we are better
friends than ever. It was Jack, who-but let me tell my story.
The summer before my story begins, jack spent in the South, while mother
and I, away from the heat and noise of New York, spent the time delightfully in
the mountains-jack and I corresponded regularly. His letters were character-
istic of him, unaffected and jolly. He had the happy faculty of making whatever
he tried to tell interesting, and he found many things to tell about down there in
the 'K Sunny South." By and by, however, there was a change. His letters
became less and less frequent, and they were shorter and more hastily written.
They also began to lack their usual buoyant fun, and, finally, some of them were
really mournful. But he would always cheer up again, and would, occasionally,
startle me by asking if I did not think brown eyes were lovely, or if I had ever
thought there was anything lacking in my life. I would reply that blue eyes were
just as pretty as brown, if they had the right expression, and that there was
nothing wanting to make me happy, I was never very susceptible to the charms
of the fair sex. Not a word did I write concerning my suspicions g for I knew that
he would tell me sooner or later, if there was anything to be told-and he did tell
The letter came about a week before time for us to return to the University.
It was more like the letters Jack used to write. He said he was in love, and he
told me all about it-how he had met her, how their acquaintance had grown, and,
finally, how he felt she was the only woman in the world who could make him
happy, how he had made up his mind to propose the following day, and how the
world would lose its charms for him if she refused him. He told me these and a
thousand other things, and it was all so unlike jack. It was ridiculous to think
of Jack's being in love,-jack who had never been the least bit sentimental, and
whom I had never known to think any girl was even pretty.
When we got back to the University and to work, the first thing jack could
say was, " Ned, old boy, congratulate me, I ,ni the happiest man on earth. Doro'
-Ned, I 'in engaged." I confess it now, although I am ashamed of it, .there was,
down in the bottom of my heart, a little bitterness at seeing that I had ceased to
be Iackis all-in-all, and that a girl whom he had known not more than two or
three months had taken my place. But, choking down as best I could all such
selfish feelings, I congratulated him heartily. VVhen we got to our room-jack
and I always roomed together,-I must see her picture, and hear all he had to say
about the defects of the photograph. The eyes, of course, were more lustrous
and laughing than the photograph represented them to be, and the mouth much
prettier-I believe these defects were mentiond among the rest, but, to tell the
truth, I was, while pretending to listen with interest, wondering whether jack
would not lose interest in his Latin, and spend his time in writing letters and
" Now that you have told me so much about her personal appearance," I said,
when he had finished, 'I it seems but right to me that you should tell me the name
of your fair charmerf'
" Well, if I had not left that out of the question entirely l Dorothy Maltbyf'
" Dorothy Maltby ! I' I exclaimed. " Wfhere does shelive P" ff
" At Qakland, Virginia. What 's the matter, Ned? "
"Impossible l Has she a sister named Clara, a few years older than her-
self ? "
" Yes, her mother is a widow, and they are her only children. Do you know
them ? "
" As sure as my name is Edward Glynton-they're my cousins."
Then came the whole story. Mrs. Maltby was mother's first cousin, and as
children they had been together a great deal. But Cousin Emily, against her
father's wishes, married alSouthern gentleman, and made her home in Virginia.
Mother was the only one of her relatives who kept up a correspondence with her.
I-Ier husband died several years after their marriage, leaving her with two small
children. They were girls, Clara, named for my mother, was about my own age.
and Dorothy was younger. It was always mother-'s desire to pay a visit to Cousin
Emily, but she had been prevented, and so I had never seen my cousins. It may
be readily understood how surprised I was to learn that the winsome maid, 'tdown
in Dixie," who had so completely won j'ack's heart, was my Cousin Dorothy. I
was also delighted to know that jack would soon be my cousin, and we used to
have many talks about Cousin Emily and her charming family. .
The autumn passed away, and winter came and jack and I were still at work.
It was our last year at the University, and both of us wished to accomplish as
much as possible. Besides that, jack had something he was working for. In
the latter part of the winter, however, I contracted a deep cold. It kept increas-
ing, but, in spite of jacks pleadings, I would not call in a physician. By March,
I had to give up and go home for mother to nurse. A severe illness followed. I
had a tough time of it, and how poor mother stood it I can not imagine. By the
middle of April I was able to be up, but I was only a shadow of my former self.
The doctors prescribed a change of climate, and Cousin Emily wrote, urging me
to come to Oakland, and get back my strength in the country air. Wfe decided
to accept the invitation. Now was the opportunity for the long-looked-for visit.
Accordingly, it was arranged that we should leave in the early part of May. But
yet, again, mother was to be disappointed. About a week before the time
appointed for our departure, my sister's children took the whooping-cough, and
mother had to stay and nurse them, promising, however, to join me at Cousin
Emily's as soon as possible. So it was that Edward Glynton set out alone for
I stood the trip very well, considering the fact that I had just recovered from
such a severe illness, and, when nearing my destination, the pure air of the south
seemed to give me new strength, and I felt sure I would be as strong as ever in
a few weeks' time. I was thinking of that and wondering how these Southern
cousins would look, and if Dorothy would be as charming as Jack represented her
to be, when the train stopped, and I saw coming toward me a portly old gentle-
man with a grave, but pleasant face. I knew that this was Oakland, and that the
old gentleman was Colonel Maltby, Cousin Emily's father-in-law, at whose house
they lived. In a few moments I should see my mother's dearest cousin and Iack's
The drive from Oakland to Colonel Maltby's home was a pleasant one,
Colonel Maltby being a perfect specimen of a dignified, hospitable and charming
Southern gentleman, and showing me every possible attention. On our arrival
at his home, or"' Oakland proper," as he expressed it, my cousin and her eldest
daughter greeted me cordially. I loved Cousin Emily from the first moment I
saw her, and felt sure that my stay in her home would be delightful. She was
not one of those people who, in adding to your pleasure, let you see so distinctly
that they are exerting themselves in doing so, that you must thank them for every
attention, no, she had a way of doing all manner of things for you without your
knowing. The thanks she got were in the love bestowed upon her by all who
knew her. I never saw a person so universally belovedg and when she said a
thing she meant it, you could believe in Cousin Emily, she was sincere. My first
impression of Clara was that she had a sweet face, and soft, gentle manners. As I
learned to know her better I found myself constantly wondering why her name
was not Peace. I have never seen any one whom the name suited so well. She
was always the same-always cheerful, gentle and sympathetic. She did not worry
and storm at triflesg but took everything as it came, and with a " Thank you,"
too, I believe. But there was something left out of her composition, I often won-
dered what it was. Much as I loved Clara, I could not help wishing-that she was
a little less perfect, there have been times when I felt as if I would give worlds to
make her mad, and see her do like other folks. I-Ier " obstinately paciiic systemf,
as Irving would call it, was sometimes harder for me to bear than other people's
tantrums. But I must leave Clara. I -am not Writing this story about her, but
about my Cousin Dorothy.
'Where did I leave off ? Oh, yes ! at my arrival at Colonel Maltby's I shall
not go into details, for I must hasten on with my story. I was disappointed at
hearing Cousin Emily say that Dorothy was away from home. I was anxious to
see if Iack's lady-love came up to my expectations. But I had not much time to
spend in vain regrets, for tea was immediately served, after which we all betook
ourselves to the veranda. There was much to talk about, and Cousin Emily had
many questions to ask respecting her " dear Clara." It 's funny the way women
put that adjective to so manyiof their words, anyway-" dear Cousin," K' dear
Mary," " dear john," and even " dear me l" VVlien, at length, I retired, being
tired after my long day's journey, I went to sleep immediately, not waking until
a late hour the next morning. I was heartily ashamed of myself, too, as, feeling
like a culprit, I went down some time after the rest of the family had breakfasted.
Cousin Emily was sitting on the veranda,-bless those long, cool, shady verandas
Southern homes have !-and saw me as I came down the stairs.
H Glad you could sleep so well, Edward," she said, with a smile, putting down
her work as she spoke, and leading the way into the dining-room. " You and I
are masters of the situation it seems. Clara has gone to see her ' poor buckras,'
as the negroes on the place call them, and Colonel Maltby has driven over to S-
for Dorothy. She has been spending a week with some friends. Her grand-
father is devoted to her. I suppose he told you all about her on the way from the
station yesterday. Ever since her father died-"
I' Miss Emily," said a little black urchin, poking his head in the door, " Une'
Dan'el say please um ken he hev some o' dem w'ite fiow's in de front ya'd to tek
to he granchile's bur'in."
" Yes, Mango, tell him I shall be there presently." Then, turning to me,
" Edward, I know all these little darkies are going to amuse you. But I hope
you will excuse me now for a second and let me get the flowers for Uncle Daniel.
A funeral is a great and festive occasion in their lives."
VVhen Cousin Emily returned, I had finished breakfast, and we withdrew to
'K This is my boudoir," she said, " and if you will be very good, you may sit
here with me. Ah l there you are Clara, how is old Mrs. Page ?"
" Better, thank you mother. Good morning, Cousin Edward."
" You see, Edward," explained Cousin Emily, " this daughter of mine feels
called upon to take care of ' the lame, the halt, and the blind ' of the whole neigh-
borhood, instead of staying at home and picking flowers for Uncle Dan's bury-
The morning passed rapidly, and in the middle of the afternoon, in spite of
the desire to be down stairs, when Dorothy and Colonel Maltby arrived, I had to
go to my room to rest, knowing that I must not overtax my strength. I began
to read, but fell asleep after the first few pages,-a thing which I rarely if ever do.
Wlien I awoke, it was growing late, and, fearing I should soon have the reputa-
tion of being a sleepy-head, I hastily made myself presentable and went down
stairs. The veranda' was deserted, but, hearing the piano, I went to the parlor
door and looked in. No, the musician was not Clara, it must be Dorothy. Sud-
denly she turned her head, it was certainly Dorothy's face. The photograph had
been enough like her to enable me to recognize her, but how true jack had been
in saying it was not good ! Yet, no artist in the world could ever have gotten
into a picture the expression of those eyes as they fell upon me !
I' Spell-bound by music P " and she laughed merrily as she arose. She knew
who I was, and I certainly knew she was Dorothy, so there was nothing to do
but shake hands, and get acquainted. This was not a difficult task, and we fell
to talking as easily and naturally as if we had known each other for years.
Instead of thinking of jack, and comparing the girl of his description with the
real, " sure-enough " Dorothy, I was listening to what she said, thinking what a
merry laugh she had, and-those eyes ! Then I remembered that Jack had said
they were such laughing eyes. I remembered that this was the girl Jack was
engaged to, that she would be his wife soon. She had been talking but now she
was silent, I had lost part of what she was saying, but I was not thinking about
that, a heavy weight seemed to have fallen on me. But I must say something, so
I told her that I had heard her name mentioned many times in the last few
" I-Iave you ? As for yours, ' Little Mother '-that 's what I always call her,
you know-has been talking of you ever since you and your mother decided to
come. She was dreadfully disappointed that your mother was prevented from
coming. I think she loves her about as much as Clara and I love each other. I
love Clara better than any one else in the world-almost," she added, with a smile.
That " almost 'I excepted Jack, of course, and the weight grew heavier.
I will not make my story longer, by stopping to say what you know already,
that I had fallen in love with Cousin Dorothy. I dreaded to write to jackg how
could I tell him in my usual way how I liked his betrothed, just as if I cared for
her only as a cousin ? It would be hard. Yet what should I do ? I could not
tell him the truth. I shunned saying anything to Dorothy herself about jack.
VVhat a coward I was ! Too much of a coward to trust myself to speak to the
woman I loved about the man she loved. The days came and went, every clay
finding me worse and worse involved. To be in the same house with her, to see
her sweet, bright face everywhere, to hear her clear voice and merry laughter
ringing through the house, was happiness for the present, yet it was a sad sort
of happiness, for what was it bringing for the future. I at last decided that there
was but one course to pursue, I must leave Qakland immediately. That would
be awkward, I knew, when I had come to pay a long visit, and, besides that,
mother would be so disappointed. VVhat could I tell Cousin Emily ? I must
tell her something, and I must get away from this enchantress 3 she was a woman,
the woman of my heart. As Vlfordsworth says,
" A creature not too bright or good
For human nz1ture's daily food 3
For transient sorrows, simple wiles
Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears and smiles."
Yes, I must go away. jack should never know, neither should Dorothy.
I had just made this resolution when the breakfast bell rang. VVhen I reached
the dining-room the family were seated at the table. The mail had just been
brought in, and all were engaged in reading. As soon as the usual " Good morn-
ings " were exchanged, Dorothy handed me a letter. " I-Iere 's one for you, Mr.
H Mr. Glynton ! " I exclaimed, looking up.
1' Mr. Edward Glynton. Is that not right F"
That set me to thinking. VVhat did Dorothy usually call me ? I did not
remember ever having heard ther call me anything. I had not thought of it
before. The letter was from Jack. I looked at Dorothy, she must have recog-
nized the writing. I saw on her face no sign of recognition, however.
just then there was an exdlamation from Cousin Emily's side of the table-
"Dorothy writes that we can expect her to-morrow instead of next week, that she
positively can not stay away from here any longerf'
" Dorothy ! H I exclaimed, " Dorothy, who P"
" My Dorothy," said Cousin Emily, evidently surprised, " your Cousin Dor-
" My Cousin Dorothy ! " and I turned blankly to Dorothy.
Colonel Maltby broke into a laugh. 'C " Wfhy, Emily, my dear, here 's what
the trouble is, Mr. Cflynton has been laboring under some delusion. I-Ie thinks
this is his Cousin Dorothy."
" Impossible ! " said Clara.
" Quite possible !" said Dorothy-not Cousin Dorothy, but the Dorothy.
4' M r. Glynton came into the parlor where I was the other day, and thought I was
Dora. You had not told him anything about me. I thought you had, and that
he knew who I was, so there was no need of an introduction." 4
" Wfhy, Edward," said Cousin Emily, "I asked you the first day you were
here if you had not heard father speak of Dorothy on the way from the station,
and you said, ' yes., "
"I said so, because I thought you referred to Cousin Dorothy. Colonel
Maltby talked about her, but did not say anything about-Miss Dorothyf'
" And you thought I was your cousin all the time ! H and Dorothy laughed
one of her merry laughs, in which all at the table joined her. '
VVhen the laugh had subsided, Colonel Maltby proceeded to tell me the
Dorothy,-not jaek's Dorothy, the oflzcr Dorothy,-was the daughter of another
one of his sons, that she was an orphan, and, now that she had finished school,
had come to live with them.
" Another thing that helped to get you so tangled up, Mr. Glynton, was that
I call Aunt Emily ' Little Motherf My own mother died when I was very small,
and, after I knew Aunt Emily, it seemed as if ' Little Mother ' just suited her."
And now the mystery was solved, and the real Dorothy was coming the next
day. But what did I care for her P I felt that I was the happiest man on earth.
But why should I be ? I did not know that Dorothy loved me. But she should
love meg I would win her love, and then tell her my story.
I-Iow the real Cousin Dorothy laughed when they told her of the mistake I
had made ! " The idea of my picture looking so much like Dorothy that Cousin
Edward thought she was I ! 3'
I did not tell Cousin Dorothy what I said about the pictureg but, between
you and me, gentle reader, although I would not like jack to hear it, that picture
just stands between the two Dorothy's-it is prettier than jack's Dorothy, not as
pretty as mine-but it would do equally well as a photograph of either.
But here I am, talking about my Dorothy with so much freedom, before even
telling you what she told me when I told her this little story. Did I win her love ?
She says I did notg she says I always had it !

LEE LITEIQNQY SQCIETY.
E who wrote of the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, who told in glowing
words and thrilling accents of the magnificence and grandeur of the glory
and renown attained by the " Mistress of the VVorld," and then in sorrow-
ful, loving words of the downward career of this noble city, its beauty and pride
taken from it, its glory destroyed, told in every word of the pride and happiness,
of the despair and ruined hopes of a human heart. So, in a sketch of our beloved
society, our hearts glow with pride as we tell of its glories and of its superiority
in days that have passed, but the effort also causes our hearts to ache when we
think that all this is linked with the boundless past, that, like Rome, 'K her glory
It would seem that with the name of Lee inscribed upon our banner there
could be no such word as fail. But we can say proudly, without boasting, that we
have been worthy of our noble leader. Grand, brave, noble, true, beautiful in
character, honorable as was our great Southern chieftain, we feel that we have
been worthy of his name, that could he know how faithfully and earnestly we have
endeavored to live up to the standard we have adopted, he would say to us, K' Well
They tell how, in years gone by, our beloved hall rang with stirring speeches
and eloquent words, how the fire of enthusiasm leaped in every vein, and brilliant
oratory flowed freely and easily. They tell how Virginia's beautiful daughters
smiled proudly and lovingly upon the boys of the Lee, and gladly, proudly,
adorned themselves with the blue and white. The remembrance occasions us
both pleasure and pain, pleasure because of the glories that once were, and pain
because they are not now. A
Many and varied have been the difficulties that beset us. Much we have had
with which to contend, and though our numbers are few, yet still we struggle on,
striving to emulate him whom we of the South love so dearly, whom we have
taken as our example. No higher fame could we desire than to be called worthy
of having borne on our standard the name of Lee. Wfe can only endeavor to
emulate him. He was too far above us for us to hope to be like him, but if our
aspirations are high and noble, we can accomplish much, and though we may not
leave behind us the record which others have done, if we have endeavored to
maintain the spotless reputation borne by our beloved leader, and thus have made
our lives better, purer, nobler, we have been worthy the name of Lee.

THE FIFTH DIVISION.
HE opening of each session must, necessarily, be similar to all previous
openings, but, notwithstanding, this similarity, there was something sur-
prisingly startling connected with the opening of this session. The here-
tofore quiet and peaceable Fifth Division was the scene of it all !
While walking up the parade grounds, the first thing one would hear was
some one yelling " Rat in the Fifth Division," and then this would be completely
drowned out by numerous cries of " - - -,H and the noise of many, many feet
hurrying towards the audacious " Rat."
So things continued, until soon there would very rarely, indeed, be heard that
cry so pleasing to all members of the Division. Indeed, everything had grown so
quiet that we were not expecting the rare treat which was now to come.
It happened that a meeting was held in No. 122, and many Rats were invited.
They came, they stayed, they went-to the first floor, where they were met and
politely requested to stay longer. The request was urgent, but, at the same time,
objections were raised. A discussion ensued, which was, happily, ended by
several buckets of water mysteriously finding their way onto the heads of those
Chickens, turkeys and geese also found their way into our midst, and glad-
dened many a heart and palate by the comfort they brought with them. Even
" Appleseeds' " tomatoes could not resist the pressing invitation. Well, wonder
how many tomatoes the committee from the Legislature ate while here ?
The result of such feasting was benehcial in many ways, and, especially, in
that it strengthened two of our number so much that in 'I scraps " they were both
We have grown used to most everything reasonable, but we were not pre-
pared for what happened one night long after lights were out. A dazzlingly,
brilliant light awoke us. At first it was supposed to be a fire, and " Wish " was
immediately dispatched for a bucket of water, but, on returning, found that
" Mike " and " Reddy " had simply come together in the hall with their caps off.
Yes, " Bill " had a trunk for which every one else, as well as himself, had a
peculiar liking, and many, many times did " Bill " have to hunt that trunk. And
now " Bill " has no trunk-only a piece ! I-lfe has a horn now, but it is very
doubtful if he will have it very long.
As a peace-loving set of fellows, what was more natural during the Senior-
Sophomore dihiculty than to see the flag of the noble Fifth Division suspended
from the wires in front of Barracks ? Did it not settle the difficulty, and did any
one dare to remove if?
But, alas, our experience has not been one of continuous pleasure. Wliile
it is true most of us had the pleasure of " hitting grit," and all derived full enjoy-
ment out of the dress U5 parade of March 13th, some of us derived a little more
than enjoyment ! Your memory, dear fellows, will always be held most sacred,
and your association with the grand old Fifth will always be a source of fond
VVho among us will ever forget that chase a tin can gave " Sophomore " from
the Fifth Division door?
'Who among us will ever forget the " Hand Organfl the two K' Firefliesf'
" VVish H and his bucket, " E. C." and his inspections, " Neely l' and his experi-
ence in town, "Piper" and his chickens, " Farmer l' and his " grit-hitting," or
who will ever forget any of his associations with the Fifth Division and its char-
acteristic features, especially that desirable characteristic which has been so
marked, and which we so seldom find-everybody 'I sticking together " like one
Long may the members of the Old Fifth live and prosper !

The BLIQIC EICCHOIW.
T is with a feeling of trepidation from both fear and delight that we now enter
upon the agreeable and disagreeable duty of placing on record the heroes of
our Institute and the marvelous powers and accomplishments which they
possess. Wlieii the Blacksburg Railroad is completed and our express bills
amount to a little less than the express itself is worth, when the Virginia Poly-
technic Institute has as much money as it wants and we can wear a new pair of
trousers toa Dutch examination without danger of wearing them and tearing them
on the nails protruding from the benches, when " kids U stop matriculating and
we can save our contingent fees, when the Athletic Association gets out of debt
and the football team pays expenses, we will erect a monument of granite with
these honored names engraved thereon, an ever-standing testimony of the cosmo-
politan character of the student-body in the days of the nineteenth century.
On the twenty-fourth day of the month of February in the year eighteen hun-
dred and ninety-eight, was waged one of the greatest battles in our history, and
the gallant victors whose names adorn the honor-roll below, merit the praise and
admiration of millions. Not by clash of arms was it decided, but by the ballot,
the " voice of the people " fnot the l70.r Populi who is the chronic growler of the
newspaperj. Fain would we dwell on these conquering heroes, but space in T1-115
BUGL13 costs dollars, and time costs now-a-days hundreds, and thought thousands,
while reason is away beyond our calculating abilities, and we are not able to
possess ourselves of three grains of it, so we must hasten to relieve the anxious
reader of these most inappropriate lines, and tell him who these favored ones really
are. Let it be understood from the outset that this is no indication of the popu-
larity of the successful candidate in every case, or of the appropriateness of the
tilles bestowed, for some have voted K' wise " and some " otherwise." -
The leader of the list is known as "The Handsomest Cadet," and Cadet First
Sergeant A. B. Hubard was almost unanimously elected to this position. The
cadet who came second is so modest that he spent several hours in persuading the
editors not to publish his name, and as they could not resist his tender entreaties
no further mention will be made of him.
Facts are often more plainly seen and better expressed by contrast, therefore
we will now introduce to you, as the choice of the students, " The Ugliest Cadet,"
Cadet O. VV. Nicewonger and his closely following colleague, Cadet G. B. Ford.
As hardest student, Cadet Captain J. S. A. johnson led, being followed in the
race by Cadet First Sergeant G. L. Fentress.
Behold ! Now come the "Biggest Sports," Cadet P. H. Lightfoot and
Cadet-Lieutenant XV. R. H. Bush, the former leading the latter by only one vote.
It would seem that " The Laziest Cadet H would be a laggard and be found
far in the rear, but not so, for Cadet VV. F.. Grant, jr., has distanced all his com-
petitors with great strides, and the only other visible contestant is Cadet W. H.
Burroughs. The canvassing for these candidates was especially active.
Now we come to a part of the election which, of course, every one will know
is a result of the " otherwise " voting mentioned above, for certain it is that no one
will ever believe Cadets I. C. McGavock, R. S. Wfilkins and B. F. McNeill to be
the 'K Biggest Liars," even if the horrid ballots do say they tied for the position.
Strange to say, the students seem to have very little conception of what this term
means, for some of them even had the audacity to vote for a certain member of
the Faculty, who is exceedingly fond of telling his " experience " and relating
'I yarns " about carwheels, etc.!
K' The Greatest Bore'! " Oh, my, what a host of memories this will recall to
us when we have left this vale of tears, of zeros and " Hunks," and once more think
of those who used to come into our rooms at the very time we were busiest, and
" gassed " on themselves and kindred subjects until we became as weary as if We
had just returned from a trip on foot to Mountain Lake ! May mercy be upon
you, Dundas, Corey and Connelly, for you have been branded forever with these
terrible words, which will forever haunt you even as you haunted those who with
a groan inscribed your name upon their ballots. f
Van Dyke and Durphey, you have been as fresh as james River shad, but, we
hope, the H nighthawks " and other regulating societies will deal gently with you,
because we are compelled to record you as the " Freshest Rats."
There is a certain class of men in College who, we regret to say, never take
interest in anything. They do all they can to hinder THE BUGLE and such enter-
prises, they support none of the varied interests of college life, in short, they are
the bug-bears of the Institute. W'e regret to have to mention it, but there is no
alternative for the voters have chosen from quite a number of candidates, all of
whom would have suited admirably-Cadets P. H. Carter, I. F.. Dickinson, and
R. Page, as " The Greatest Sore-headsf'
" As Darndest Man," the meaning of which term we will not attempt to
explain, Cadet I. G. Pelter was chosen with Cadet R. M. Scott, as second choice
to keep him company.
All of us have been afflicted with the visitations of " bums," and. indeed, so
active have been these individuals this session that many candidates were in the
Held for the honor, and the contest was quite a spirited one. However,sCadet E.
S. Sheib distanced all his opponents, and Cadet I, A. Williams took second
CadetsiVV. B. Price, M. S. Hopkins and R. S. Willciiis were adjudged the
" Champion Grit-hitters," to rank in the order named. The first two, having had
so much practice in the profession, decided to undertake a long journey, from
which we are afraid they will never return.
In voting for " The Cutest Cadet," many lost sight of the fact that the term
has a modern meaning, which will be clearly explained by giving the names of
Messrs. O. F. Wfhitehurst and J. K. Harrison, who received a SLlH'TCl61'l'C number of
votes from those who did understand, to give them undisputed possession of the
Messrs. Separk and Cannon were voted to be the " Most Sentimental Cadets."
Wfhy do you suppose it was so ?
There is still another class of cadets in our Institute who some of us think
should come after the class mentioned a few lines above. These are the " Great-
est GFOXVl61'S,,y and they stand according to the votes, Adams, VVeisiger, Lewis.
Be sure to get " just so " now, for, " Cholly dweah bwoy," is appearing on the
scene in the person of Cadet J. R. Brown, " The Biggest Sissy." Joe took this
character in a play and the boys thought he must be so naturally since he filled
his role so well. But he was not elected without opposition, for Cadet NN. B.
Crockett had also many votes to his credit.
A Last, but not least, comes the great musical contest for the position of " The
Finest Singer." It can hardly be called a contest, however, for Cadet Lieutenant
R. S. M. Mitchell so far distanced all other aspirants that they are almost unwor-
thy of notice.
Our task is done. After much excitement, spirited canvassing, and many
brawls around the polls on election day, the ballots have been counted and the
cold facts put before the world. You who were beaten in the race have our sym-
pathy and the hope that you will be more successful another session, while to you
who came off victorious, we extend congratulations and advise you, if this be
honor, make the most of it !

what white folks calls a nigger, an he tuk an he pulled off his coat an he-
flunkup !-down he went in dat water an fotched dat King-whar was a wery
ordnary lookin' man-from de brink of de grabe, an he diden know he war no
'K But de King, he kinder 'preciated it like, and lowed how he gwine gib dat
po nigger a charm. An de po nigger he 'lowed as how he ain gwine 'cep no
charm, but de King 'lowed he mus, an I 'low he arter while 'cepted an confiscated
dat charm, an de King say, 'K Qh, beruly, all yor chullun shall be wit dis same
charm," and dey is to dis day. '
" Now, john Henry, don, you git 'patient, case I gwine tel you how de charm
wuks 'rectly. You see, chile, taint no material thing, but jest rests on de mind,
an follers dis circumspecshum. De nigger is standin' anywhar mos, when dere
ain't no moon-shine--when, suddenly, dere comes a feelin' like sumiin wants him,
an he tries ter keep back, but still de sumfin pulls, so he jest 'lows as how he gwine
ter find out what dat sumfin is, so he starts hisself forld an dere loomin, up right
afore his eyes is de purtiest gal you eber seen, an she beckins to him to come 'long,
an' I 'low how he allers comes. Dat figger jest makes rite fer some farmer's yard
an dere de nigger sees de most lubliest castle dat he eber sot eyes on. De gal
goes right in an a big Ogie ! -grabs her. De nigger gits terrible 'cited, an runs
in an chucks, his arm roun' in dere-an keepin' monstrous quiet-like all time-
arter while finds de gal an rescue her from de Qgie. I-Ie den turns back home wit
de sabed gal, an lord !-when he gits 'tirely at home dat bootiful gal turns
,mediately into a nasty, ugly, common, white-folks chicken ! I tells yer, chile,
when dat change takes place, dat nigger is sho a disappointed nigger, an dat ain
no story nuther. Now go rit to sleep, honey, or de Ogie mite ketch you ! "
