Tlie Editors ha ' e not felt themseU es restrained by any cast-iron bands or fetters, or established lines of work. The class of ’95 is essentially original, and so has introduced new features into this representation of our collegiate atmosphere. We claim striking originality and pleasant variety for our Ciarla, mingling food for the thoughtful, nectar for the light-hearted, and good for all. W’e ha ' e hidden no stings in our flowers, nor poisons in our fruits. Whatever sharpness may be found here for the individual palate, is but the acidity of Nature’s laboratorj and not the con- coction of the chemist’s table.

AST the beautiful star which has led us so faithfully, from the time we entered Queen City, on the plains near the Jordan, until the present time, is standing high in the Zenith (5 ) predicting that our course is run. ' I ' he Class of ’94 has the ]Dri ilege of retrospection, and for the third and last time makes her apj)earance in the CiARL.t, and then bids farewell ( 10) to the College World. It wo ild be impo.ssible in the .space allotted to us to give a detailed history of our e.x- istence. We do not believe or j)ose as Carlyle does in his Hero (15) Worship, “He is above thee like a Ciod.” Vet ’94 has accomplished some good in her brief e.xistence, that is worthy ol si)ecial note. Four years have we dwelt in an atmosphere odoriferous of Ancient tongue and customs. What sights have we beheld from the (20) Holes 09 Jdistory oV 94. Edi row’s Motto ; — Evtn ii lue is more fair when it appears in a beautiful person. — V irgil. I. The Bh. ' vutiful Star. It seems that this elass must have hitched their wagon to a star as Emerson has exhorted all young men. We wonder whether they were not thus carried too high above other poor earthly mortals. 13. A Detailed History. Happy are we, writes a contemporary, “that ' 94 has so kindly spared us the relation of her inoincntous history.” 19. Atmosphere Odoriferous of Ancient Tongue. ’94 was rather thoroughly imbued with this ancient odor; the odor clung to them, perhaps a little too strongly for intimate association. — (C iroii. I [iih.

For four years have our smiling countenances appeared w’ithin and illumined the classic walls of our Alma Mater. In that time w ' e have met and been observed not only by our colleagues but by the honored Citizens of this Community.

We have tasted of the joys and trials of College life, (30) yet with the Ps.rchment in our hands we still linger on the threshold of our Alma Mater.

In athletics she was seldom outdone ; when challenged to base ball she did nobly ; those interested in tennis and foot-ball made e.xcel- ( 35 ) 22. Our Smiling Counten. nces.

While banqueting at Bath, our acK-er- saries fcjrced entrance into our rooms and ransacked them thor- (40) oughly. When we arrived in the stillness of the early morn and saw what was done, the atmos])here, for the time being, was thick with tlireats of vengeance, but all of no a.vail, “ to the victors belong the sjjoils.” When our turn came to issue the College Annual, our Com- (45) mittee wielded its mighty arm and produced an annual which is far su])erior to the one issued by the class which jrreceded us.

That goal is reached, and henceforth our paths diverge, our past history is summed uj in brief, but our future history is sealed.

Taking her motto — " ' In viriiile ct sapicntia Jidctmts " — as her guide, she has bravely battered ( 5 ) down e ' ery barrier, until to-day she holds an einhable position in the College world. Two years ago, when we entered these classic walls, our men (10) were strikingly characteristic for their greenness, which term we, by un- prejudiced reflection, admit as having- been rightly applied. We were the terror of the Sophomores, the (15) subject of conversation for the Profs., and the ch.unpion team upon the campus. After a complete renovation by the P ' aculty, we entered Sophomore year, which was passed through (20) the usual dominant .spirit. Suffice it to say that we did justice rith Editor ' s .Motto for ' 95:- dUNlOf (’ 95 ) plOTES. ‘ ’I ' hey must ui)VvaT(l still and onward, Who would ktrep abreast of ' I’ruth.” — Lowkll. 2. Proud and Thankful. — The sentiment express d here is - occasioned no doubt by tlie recollection that ’95 has hut one more — Awi year in these “ classic walls,” and that therefore there is great proba- guttered down everv bility of their living out their four years’ sentence. Barrier 5. Br.welv Battered Down Every Barrier.— The Historian gives us a beautiful axample of his literary ability in his hidden hint at the Junioric prowess in games. This fact seems conclusively proven. Another author of the same date as the above historian has this; ‘ ' The opinion has gained credence in college that no single class-team in Muhlenberg is able to Cope successfully with the Junioric Giants .” — The Muhlenberg. 30 to the incominjj- P ' reshmen by not molesting those innocents, and assisting them in cases of necessity. One of the most prominent features of the year was the contest for the Botanical Prize. Mr. Bauer was proclaimed the Victor (J. ). (25) To-day we aj)pear liefore the College world as a of well- wrought Juniors. As conscientious Juniors, we have endeavored to act our part nobly; at one time, “ .scanning Attic Greek with true critic’s ken,” and at another time, with equal ability, interpreting the philosophical writings of the r.ncient Romans. Calculus, (30) whom many a student (?) views with murder in his eye, was our dearest friend. The fl(.)wer.s of Liteniture we ha ’e culled with joyful soul : American, English, and German s])ecimen.s of Literary Elori- culture are found amongst our bouciuets of Belles Lettres. Very seldom is a class able to boast of ha ing carried aw ' ay (35) the palms of victory in every class contest. Numerous games ha ' e been played — both Foot Ball and Base Ball — but never has ’95 met a concpieror, nor c ' an an equal. 14. Having Rp;en Rightly Applied. Truly hath the wise man said, “An honest confession is good for thesonl.” So deeply imbued with the verdant dye were these men of ’95, that none but “green goods’’ would they handle, whereby — we think — they will long keep their memories g rc i ' in the minds of their friends. 16. vSunjECT or Conversation. Rather, the object thereof, as they always appeared as the “ones acted upon,’’ A Complete Renovaiiou. and not the actors. Witness the “ Artists’ Club — Limited to Two,” and the “Junior Volunteer Spritz-companie. ’’ 19. Complete Renovation. We give a snap shot of the ancient m.aiiner of “renovating” with one of ’95’s dominant spirit . as given by the best authorities oa the subject. 25. The Victor. Another illustration of the old proverb’ Scanning Attic Greek. “ Xo the Victor belong the spoils.” It seems those men of old had the same general events transpiring as we have them now. 28. Act Our Part Nobly. No doubt they honestly made the endeavor. As to the Livy Play of ’95, is it not written in the chronicles of M. C. ? 28. SCAN.NiNG Attic Greek. The Doctor evidently furnished ’95 with measures of length, which they seem to have applied to the origi- nal use of measuring “feet,” for we find this in their archives ; “ One of our Juniors deserves a he note. What better picture can we gain of C. E. K. than b}’ the Latin adage Ex pede Hercnlem 31 The Palms of Victory. In society, our men were shining stars. To enumerate the different sociables which were especially enlivened by the presence of (40) our men, space would not permit. During the year, the class received two additions in the persons of L. 1 ). Lazarus and H. P. Miller. Soon shall we enter upon the last stage of the brief but interesting- four years’ course. When we have left these hallowed walls, (45) and have entered u])on life’s stormy sea, it will ev ' er be a delight to look back upon our Junior days — the most joyful of College life. May ’95 ever find her men at their post of duty, ever striving after that knowledge which conducts them beyond the realms of material nature. In virtute et sapicntia vinccnius. (50) J. E. SANDT, Historiayi. Numerous 32. F1.0WERS OF Literature. The poet of the class seems to have broken loose here, and before he was captured, had run in the next 3 lines. 36. The Paems of Victory. .-Vgain must we refer to a contemporary. The Item, an evening paper of that day, states about this time the mys- terious disappearance of a large boxful of palm-leaf fans from a mer. chant’s store. Possibly these two facts bear some relation to each other. 36. Numerous Games. The cut reveals one of their favorite games, requiring good memory and great psychical acumen. 39. Shining Stars. So distant, yet still so bright. But it is also true, “ ’Tis distance lends enchantment to the view.” Gaines. ADDITIONS. It seems as if the new additions had rendered valuable service to a publication then made — The Ci. RL. — whence their mention in this history. ‘ 44. Last Stage. The cut is not intended to convey the idea that ’95 was slow. Their competitors discovered otherwise. 48. Their Post of Duty. The cut shows not ’95 ' s post of duty at the time of writing the history, but previous to it, under the exhilarating influ- ence of their “dominant spirit.” Their post of duty in the later 3’ears was not enveloped in a similar amount of darkness. heir of Duty.

Like all other organizations that have become great, ’96 .started at the lowest round on the ladder of learning, but ( 5) by earnest endeavor, patient plodding, and characteristic courage, she has steadily continued her ascent until we now see her approaching the close of the second epoch in her existence. ( 10) Perils indeed ha ' e threatened her ; she bra ’ely advanced to meet them. Foes ha ' e gathered against her ; she ne ' er feared nor trembled, but, with determined mien and undaunted courage, she has withstood every assault, passed safely through ([5) e ’ery conflict and come out ' ictorious over all her enemies. In her Freshman year, she enjoyed a delightfully cool time at Coopersburg, and the events of that auspicious occasion still lingers pleasantly in the minds of all who particiiJated in its ' aried pleasures. hJotes 09 History of ' 96. Editor’s Motto: — “Time wasted is our existence.” — Young (alt.). 4. That Have Become Great. We give an illustration of such organi- zations. The cut is especially fitting since ’96 was noted for its great resources of natural gas. They were said to have had sufficient for the entire college. 7. Characteristic Courage. They say “ Discretion is the better part of valor.” ’96 exemplified the truth of this in their adventures at Coopersburg. 15. Withstood Every Assauet. Had Homer written this sen- timent, he would have introduced this simile : ” Like a bull which, when he sees the arrow aimed at him, stands firm with head lowered, but dies having made a defence stubborn but useless.” Thus did Become Great these Sophs withstand their assaults. Characteristic Courage. 35 Then, following the Easter recess, came the balmy days of genial (20) Spring wherein some studied, as they are wont to do, with all the faculties of their being ; some, as is their custom, applied themselves less assiduously to their tasks ; and others dreamed away the long, bright hours of Maytime only to awake at the examination season in June and find that college life is not mere play but full of hard (25) facts and sober realities. They had fancied it might be a period as free from care as the bright but fleeting day of the butterfly. Now they know that air-castles and vain thoughts vanish as easily as they come, and that ’96 can not always walk in a path strewn with roses and by fountains of sweet water, but that her way oftener lies (30) along rough and rugged roads, that she must patiently toil as she ascends the mountain-side and anon go down into the dark valley of disappointment. June 20, 1893, is a date indelibly inscribed upon the pages of our history. Then, in the forcible words of the noble Romans, we (35) came, we saw, we vanquished our common enemy, Titus Livy. We submitted to him for a time to learn whether we could bear his rule, but we found it too unjust, too severe, too greatly opposed to the spirit of freedom that pervades the bosom of ’96. In the presence of a s])lendid assemblage, we broke loose from his bonds who (40) had been a very (liant Despair to some of us, declared that we would 17. Coon Time. On this occasion, W. M. W. quoted these words which, have come down to us at this late day ; “ It’s a cold day when we get left.’ 22. Faculties of Their Being. The cut is not an assortment of specimens from the Agricultural Building of the World’s Fair, but merely an array of ’96’s special and most shining faculties, as drawn from life by our staff artist. 25. F ' ull of Hard Facts. To us of later day, this expression is scarcely intelligible. Our archieologist has unearthed from the ruins of this same Muhlenberg College a barrel of hard cider which some of the students had undoubtedly concealed from the authorities. We give a cut of this ancient relic on the opposite page. Our position is strengthened by the use of the word “ full.” 27. Free From Care. A writer of that period states, that had the men of ’96 realized the difficulties and hardships of college life, they would never have been in existence as a class. 31. Rough and Rugged Roads. Remember Coopersburg ! 34. The Pages of Our History. We see by this passage that there pq ukies 01 existed some works of which we h ive not the slightest trace. Being no longer endure his rule, and, in tragic strains, forever overcame this foe of every Freshman. The gates of the Temple of Janus were closed ; the scholastic year of ’92-’ 93 at Muhlenberg had come to a successful termination. (45) No longer need the worthy Professors, as commanders, lead forth the army of students to meet and contend with the friends who, in the guise of foes, confront them in the class-room. The year’s struggles were ended, its battles won, and its trophies are carefully preserved by the noble combatants. The classic corridors were (50) silent and deserted and the men of ’96 passed the pleasant Summer days, each according to the desire of his own heart. We were pre- paring ourselves to enter the arena of the Sophomore year. ’Neath September’s sunny skies we again assembled in our accus- tomed places and were able to welcome to our midst four noble (55 ) brothers who desired to join us in our pilgrimage to the Mecca of learning, the supreme end of all our efforts. These fellow-travelers have proved themselves worthy members of our band, and we feel as if they were not merely among us but truly of us. The gathering of herbaria and the frequent recitations in (60) mathematics — both of w ' hich were very serious — as well as the dignity it befitted us as Sophomores to assume, also a matter of grave im- portance, kept us very busy during the Fall term, and ere we knew Hard Facts. 36. We Vanquished. This is a much disputed passage, and has given the Editor considerable trouble. However the generally adopted reading is as follows : “ We came, we saw, we vanished,” — the qu being inserted through some mistake of the printer’s devil. Their habits of life bear out this reading as our cut on the following page clearly shows. 37. Submitted to Him. Here the original manuscript has “sub- missimus,” which, taken literally, would mean “sent down” to him, i. e. the devil. Some adhere to this reading, which shows their close associations with His Satanic Majesty. , _ From other accounts, the Editor fears that our Historian has here confused Melpomene with Thalia (Muse of Comedy). M. H. S., dancing the skirt dance, could not pass for the tragedian. 49. Trophies are Carefuedy Preserved. For a long time, this was an enigma, until we came across this passage: “Many of the Class of ’96 have not as yet recovered from their contest with L,ivy. A number of the black eyes of that occasion still remain.” Those must have been the trophies referred to. 37 Rough and Rugged Road. it, the Winter days had come again, the Christmas chimes were ringing, the earth heard anew the seraphic anthem and our (65) hearts were once more gladdened by the story that is very old, yet ever new. The old year passed away and we entered the new, not knowing the future, it is true, but resolved to become true men, faithful students and worthy sons of our beloved Alma Mater. Ever loyal to ’96, we pray she may always prosper and be an honor (70) to grand, old Muhlenberg. SAMUEL AUGUSTUS BRIDGES STOPP,, February the firsts eighteen hundred and ninety-four. Historian. 52. Desire of His Heart. A member of ’95 in commenting on this passage has given us the following lines : “No doubt so did we too in the blooming. Sophomore days. But, as Juniors, we have put away all childish things.” 55. Four Noble Brothers. We think these “ four noble brothers ” deserve more than mere passing mention. Ther - was the gentleman from Brooklyn, whose father once graced the halls of Muhlenberg ; the Prof, from Jersey, who never wearied of telling of Jersey belles and of the size 5-of Jersey mosquitoes. Then aLo the “ Kutztown man ” and the gentle- man from Bath completed the quartette. 61. Dignity it befitted us to assume. The assuming of this His ' liguity was perhaps a little premature. Such action lieing countenanced in the Seniors alone. It was in those days plainly evident that the dignity ’96 had was only assumed.

' 02 - SEPTEMBER 7th when the doors o Muhlenberg were Hung open for the 26th time in ( 5 ) her successful ca- reer, there came to the Institution 28 sturdy young men in quest (10) of “wisdom.” They promi)tly organized them- selves as a Class of ’97. The (15) b a n n e r u n d e r w h i c h they so b.iavely set out on their four year’s march bears the motto, “ Know the opportunity.” Of this number, thirteen enlisted directly from the Academic Department; the rest came from various other (20) institutions. blotes on Jdistory oJ ’97. Editor’s Motto : — “ What we know here is very little ; But what we are ignorant of is immense.” — L api.ace. 9. Sturdy Young Men. No doubt the true meaning of these old words can best be seen by taking the very first meanings. We give an extract from one who lived slightly earlier than the Historian: “Sturdy. — [N. Fr. ' etourdi, stunned, giddy, thoughtless, rash, — to stun, to render giddy, to amaze. IT. stordire. ' (Webster.) ii. Wisdom. — In the entire history, the author seems to have confounded this word with knowledge. Vide line 44. Knowledge is learning, scholarship. Wisdom is knowledge applied. A learned man may be a fool, “ for a’ that.’’ ' • Knowi.edge is proud that he has learned so much ; Wisdom is humble that he knows no more.” — O owper. The Sophomores have generally given them plenty of marching space. The combative spirit, formerly attributed to every Sopho- more class, seems to be slumbering peacefully in the bosom of ’96. Only once did it give any sign of life. During one of our class- (25) meetings, three of their “bluest blooded” braves tried to fasten the door of the room in which we were, intending no doubt to slaughter us one by one in that helpless condition. But prompt action on the part of our heroes secured us our liberty, and stayed the rising thirst for blood. The most important fighting has been verbal, which (30) pro ' es that actual warfare is gradually dying out, and that soon the ‘ ‘ lion shall lie down with the lamb. ’ ’ ’97, like every previous Freshman class, has been reviled by the upper-class-men in withering terms, but we are not utterly consumed, “v because we are so near the charmed borders of Sophomore year. ( 35 ) J 13. Organized Themselves. Just as a band of raw recruits form an awkward squad. 18. Four Years’ M.arch. The lowest estimate. The author evidently does not intend to refer to ’97 individually, but as a class. — 18. “ Know THE Opportunity.” A very good motto indeed. Organized Yet if ’97 in its course really went no further than that, it Themselves, accomplished nothing. Not knowledge, but possession is the essential. 20. Academic Dep.artment. A later writer has rendered Epidemic Department, this phrase— probably more correctly — Epidemic Department. 20. V.ARious Other Institutions. Some of the schools then extant were The Aineyvilte Institute of Learning, Farmer Wayback ' s Schooi Jor the Training of Young Men in Agricuitural Fieids, and many others of similar nature. Plenty of M.arching Sp.ace. This passage reflects credit on ’96 for recognizing the needs of ’97. No. 11 shoes, with the feet to fit them, would occupy quite an extent of territory. 23. Combative Spirit. In justiceto ’96 we mustremark that it is extremely hard to fight against nothing, ‘‘as one that beateth the air.” 25. One of Our Class-meetings. The cut shows the generally prevailing spirit of those class-meetings. 28. Prompt Action. As narrated by a writer of the Sophs, vide cut on opposite page. 30. Fighting has been Verbal. In this respect, we must give ’97 its due. As a class, it stands pre-eminent for its verbal contests. Plenty of Marching Space. m One of Our Class-meetings. 42 At the time of the “Liberty Bell” celebration, ’97 made a fine appearance in the great parade, and received such words of praise that modesty forbids us to mention them. As often hap|)ens when great events are born into the world, no one realized at the time what a remarkable class had come into (40) existence. There are found in it orators, j)oets, musicians, and foot- ball players. These are already so proficient in their various branches of learning that, when they have comj leted their college course, they will doubtless astonish the world with their wisdom. The Institute must have been much benefitted by this body of (45) heroes : For from their ranks came the centre-rush, who made the foot-ball team so famous ; upon them rested the burden of keej ing the halls lively ; and in many other res])ects they were indispensable. Three of the members of the class have left us during the year for various reasons. (50) Prompt Action. 33. Reviled by the upper-class-men. ’Twas ever thus. This is the reward of the upper-men. They had done their best by ’97 : had not spared tlie vials of their good advice, and had treated them wdth the fatherly care of Juniors and Seniors. 36. Bell(e) Celebration. We have here a good illustration of this memorable occurrence, and we can understand why modesty forbade the Historian to mention them. 40. Realized at the Time. Not at this late day has it dawned upon the public mind. 41. Musicians. The Freshmen of that day were famous for their nightly serenades. 46. Centre-rush. “ For this alone does ’97 deserve to exist,” said one of their day. Remoto joco, the centre-rush deserves congratula- tion for the spirit and ardor of his rushes. 47. Keeping the Halls Lively. From ’97 were enrolled the great majority of that illustrious and viliaut band known as the ‘‘Hoboken Dnmpling Rollers” whose motto was ‘‘ Rolling stones gather no moss.” 48. Indispensable. The Historian satirically mentions several reasons for this term (lines 46-48), but the true reasons were these ; as fags for the upper-class-men; as ‘‘rushers of the growler;” and as general super- numeraries. Fighting has been verbal. 43 Mr. Gold joined the class in the latter part of the first session, and the muster roll now has twenty-six names upon it. There is also abundant promise that many new names will be added when another term begins. In looking back over the past year, we recall with pleasure (55) the many profitable hours which we spent in the various class-rooms. We can truly say, “ It is good to be here.” I. O. NOTHSTEIN, Historian. 50. For Various Reaso.xs. Several publications of the same date as the above Historian contain the following : For further information, address Rev. Theo. L.

A wit of that day wrote our quotation on this passage: “ The Class (’97) may account themselves thrice blessed in this acquisition of otd in the present stringency of the money Keeping the Musicians. market. They have had better luck than ’94, who have received only Halls Lively, a nickel since their incorporation as a class, though the gross profits amount to considerable.” 53.

Senior P eception. 0 N MONDAY EVENIN( ' j, June igtli, the ( ' jraduatin«; Class was entertained by President Seip and liis wife, at their home. The evening was spent in a most jrleasant manner, for tlie entertaining qualities of our worthy President and his wife, and their young lady friends, are of the highest order. Conver- sation, piano solos, and an excellent repast, were the order of the evening. This was the beginning of the end for the poor Seniors, so the Doctor tried to send them on their way in the world rejoicing. The only thing the President had occasion to regret was that he requested them to sing. The din they set up was horrible. A faint idea of it may be had by combining the melodious strains of Mr. Thom as Cat ' s love-ditty to his Maria ; the clear sweet soprano of Miss Goose’s ode to the man in the moon : the divine, jxithetic baritone of Mr. Jackass ; the exqui- sitely rich of Sir Hull-frog, Lord of the Marsh; and the accompaniment of the soothing tones of the butcher’s horn and the dish-iran ; and the lively music of the rosined-store-box- and-fence-rail and conchs. We cannot but wonder how the President could endure it to the end. Immediately after the close of the song, he hastened to thank the gentlemen ery kindly for their music lest they would start another selection. Allow us to say that not until the end of the Summer ' acation did the Doctor and his family fully recover from the se ' ere shock on their nervous systems.

The Codex fJonagensimus Quintus. N the second con.sulship ot (irover, A. U. C. 26, T. Lucius Scipio being ' (Governor of this ]iro ' ince, there came to jiass an event so strange that at the thought terror doth seize my heart and trembling my bones. But to show to what perils the folly of men sometimes leads them, I do write this in my chronicle. During the aforesaid year, Apollj ' on, the angel of the bottom- less pit, while going about in this world like a roaring lion, seeking whom he might devour, chanced to spy thirty-fi ' e young fools and old fogies, the more foolish for their age, who were very wise in their own conceits, but of a truth of wisdom had they ' ery little. For this presumption, did this Most High and Mighty Prince rightly judge them to be his projierty, with which he could do whatever he listed, and right glad was he to find so much fuel for his fire. P ' or some reason which His Satanic Majesty alone doth know,, he did not immediately put them to torture, but, according to a truth of Diabolology, did allow them to do his sovereign will ; so did they form the Class of ’g6, for the encouragement and greater spread of wickedness. 1. Ab Universitate (Muhlenbergieuse) Condita. 2. There is no fool so bad as an old fool. 49 Tliereafter did Lucifer, King- of fallen angels and Freshmen, send to these jroor, condemned, farm-bred or slum-nurtured natural history specimens a false dream, advising them to produce a Crema- tion of Titus Li ’y. Then was their ambition aroused, and they did say among themseh es : “ Go to, let us make us a name. ’ ’ Woe worth the day wherein they this high-minded- 7 ness assumed. Vaniias Vaniiatum. ' et did these villains, by much begging and putting on honest looks, get some folk to come and see whether any good thing could come out of ’96, and what sort of creatures they might be ; for they had been gathered from all sorts and condi- tions of men, a Moor and a Hottentot from Africa, Hoj) Ski from China, Miss Chippiana Buttermilk from Europe, sundry persons from the New W ' orld, and a wild man from Borneo. On the twentieth day of the si.xth month did this calamity come to pass. For security, stationed the Go ’ernor his body-guard, ye noble army of Preps in ye front row of ye upper gallery. This company doth jx)ssess the name, “ The Invincibles,” on account of their superior equipment ; for their light arms do throw horrible missiles ' and their artillery hurls cursed solid shot - and shell. I do not chronicle this “ Crematio Livi ” for its own sake, but from this e ' ent to teach men humility as Saint Paul doth ad -ise not to think of themseh ' es more highly than they ought to think. Critics do declare the i)lay to be a miserable failure ; the common plea for dramas, the teaching of morals, was not urged for this jday. It was of that kind that is likely to PuUiiiK on Honest Looks All Sorts and Conditions of Men. 1. Tobacco quids, cigar stumps, torpedoes, groans, hisses. 2.

The monotony did sorely try many, but when the wild Malay began his war-dance and the white maiden did also join him, the j eople could no longer control their rage, but gnashed their teeth, rent their clothes, tore their hair, and rushed to destroy the |)retenders.

[ ■ 7 QPHRONI A, while 3he cloey not possess the Inrger number LLJ of members, yet prides herself that she has the creme de la oeme of the men. Of course, so does Euterpe.a. The Editor does not desire to decide this question. It calls for none. Each man knows that his own society is the better, and that is sufficient. SoPHRONiA has done great things this year. While not making much display, it can be safely said that she has ad -anced to a higher literary standpoint. Her essays are more thoughtful, her debates hotter, her orations more rhetorical, and the mark for ne.xt year is one hundred per cent, higher than this. One of ’93’s first honor men, Mr. Edwin Timothy Kunkle, was a member of Sophroni. ; and for this year, she scans the future with hopeful eye. 72 Sopbroniap Liiterary Society. nOTTO;— The End Crowns the Work.

The Editor of the Ciarla is deeply plained because of his inability to present for public gaze and glorp the names of the gentlemen composing this famous organization. So secret are its councils, so hidden its archives, that we were unable to procure its roll either by persuasion of the critics or by the use of dynamite on the suspects. All things come to him who waits. So we accidentally discovered the following rules while investigating the fraternities. RUI.ES. 1. All members must practice the art of riding at lea,=t four times per week. 2. In doing so, he must not arouse the suspicion of the critics. 3. Each true member must never be “thrown” more than once a week. 4. He must keep his horse, or ponj-, under excellent control, and well groomed. 5. Never may the horse be left in the stable when in the presence of the critics. The horse and rider must alwaj-s “go together.” 6. No member of this organization is allowed to betray another, under penalty of forfeiture of his fiery steed. 7. No “ railroader ” who rides “ between the lines ” (interlinear) will be tolerated. 8.

Dags of Long Ago. 3B ' Y CLASS 03P ’95. HEN we went to Prep, we were in our infancy and in our [ " ' ' ' t ' lory. No fear of flunking or condition.s haunted our then childlike minds. •Some of us started in the Third I)i -isi()n, making idols of the higher classmen, studying fifteen minutes in a day, killing Hies and bothering the Profs, during the remaining time. By the time our Profs, had no more use for us in the Third I)i ' ision, .some of us wore long pants on .Sunday and Knickerbockers on schooldays. We can not recall what we ■ore on .Sa.turdays, — kilts, perhaps. .Second Division made us feel as if we ought to a.ssert our rights, and we did. We gave our Profs, .some pieces of our minds now and then, — we had not much to give, — Init “ every little helps. " T had some idea of art, and inscribed our monograms indelibly upon the walls :md woodwork. We also began to chew — pajrer. It was great fun to chew a wad of ]ra])er into a pulp, and, ha ing cut out a j)aper baby, to join the two and “ hre ” the conglomeration up to the ceiling. There the jroor child would helplessly hang until a sympa- thizing Prof would get the broomstick to assist us in taking down (mr deccjration.s. There was a bakery close by, where we sjjent many a penny to buy kisses. (That was the only way we could get them then. Fern Sem has compassion on us now. ) With dough- nuts and cream puffs and krullers protruding through our cheeks, we would come into class — only to be “shipped.” After lea ’ing ' Second Division, we were the Seniors of Prep, and ran things to suit ourselves. We stole four bells in almost as many •eeks, etc. , etc. We had risen to the equestrian rank to which we still adhere, although our animals do every now and then raise their hind pedal e.xtremities. But we studied hard ; two of us would translate a whole lesson in ' irgil in ten minutes, and one of these students was admitted as a fresh-man by virtue of his having receir ed a gilt-edged certificate. We left Prep with reluctance and our diplomas, and our Profs, were ery sorry to see us lea e. In a vain endea or to catch and bring back a sarcastic chap, one of our Profs, chased him “out the back door, the corner ' round, and the hill up” until his game was ' way up on Walnut .Street where his footprints may be seen to this ery day. These be the chronicles of our days in Prep. 124 Preparatory Department. JOHN S. FEGLEY, . . . CHARLES E. OCHS, ... EDMUND F. HARMONY, CLAYTON L. MOLI., HARRY E. STRAUSS, . CHARLES L. MF;TZ, . .

The Inner Jji?e o? a Gernnan U niversity. By Rkv. W. a. Sadtler. Ph.D., ’83, of the Lutheran Seminary, Chicago, 111. A I HE feeling that possesses the American student, when he finds himself gazing ujjon the group of unpretentious old buildings that shelter the a ' erage (ierman lhn ' ersity, is usually one of disapj)ointment. However, as the light of knowledge dawns upon our brother student, this feeling fades utterly away, and he Iregins to take ])leasure in :m institution so un-American that its outside is its poorest side. When in the Loiu ' re a few years ago, the writer heard a brother Americmi e.xhibiting the famous Venus of Milo to some visiting friends. The statue was a ' ery neat piece of work, he freely admitted, but then in America there were se eral much larger ones. Our brother student, who has ]:)rogressed far enough in his intel- lectual evolution to comprehend the influence of the historic element, will soon find himself taking a degree of cnjcn-ment in the (juiet picturesqueness of the time-stained buiklings of the old (ferman Uni ersitv thc.t a.cres of the costly modern structures of the home in.stitutions never gave. The University projier, with its manifold relations, civil, ecclesias- tical ;md scholastic, is indeed a comple.x organism, defying any brief account. In its operation it may be described as at once cumber- some and effective, owing to conscientious attention to detail. The World’s Fair pilgrim, who g;i ’e but a moiety of his distracted atten- tion to the ( ' jerman exhibit, tracing it thro building after building, from Kru|)p’s Titamic display to where it took the form of the most 131 delicate creations of Art, was impressed by at least one prevailing- characteristic. This, it need hardly be stated here, was that of thoroughness. “ In the elder davs of Art, Builders wrought with greatest care Each minute and unseen part ; For the Gods see everywhere.” The apparent action of the Uni ersity, as seen in its lecture courses, does not seem an adecpiate cause for e.xisting effects, i. c. world-wide reputation and large attendance year after year, even from abroad. Not to mention the power of mere gregarious instinct, there may be named as sources of attraction the almost electric stimulus of an intellectual atmosi here and the delightful intercourse of the .Seminar and of uncounted literary and social societies. What of the life of the students, it may be asked ? Is not (lerman stu- dent life a better known institution than the (lerman University itself? These (ferman students are a picturesque crowd, as one looks on them, grouped about the Uni er.sity Court bright-hued in their semi- uniform ; or as they march, two and two, thro some neighboring- park making the air -ocal with their rollicking song. The life that these young hoirefuls lead, it is almost superfluous to say, is e en more j icturesque than their appearance. Beer and song, with tobacco, do not constitute the entire program of the (}erman student, the popular impressioj-i to the contrary not- withstanding. fiis fondness for these items is a, merely superficial trait, but one that has been widely remarked upon. The e.xact esti- mate he jjuts uj)on these atijuncts to his e.xistence might be explained, and certain dark secrets of the prison-house rer ealed, but lack oT space and honor forbid. There is much method in this seeming madness, and the life of the ( lerman student is determined by influences that go far deeper into his spirit than the mere instinct of conviviality. Foremost among these influences is the thought that The Ideal Life, as that of the student is fondly termed, has come to him as a long expected inheritance. He finds himself liberated at last from the thralldom of the gymnasium, not only a free man, but standing- on the borders of a promised land, as his barbaric ancestors once stood on the frozen ridges of the Alps gazing down upon the sunny and fruitful plains of Italy. Thro poetry and song and tradition almost limitless this vision of The Ideal Life has been stamped uj)on his imagination, until he realizes that a semester or two de ’Oted meanly to its pleasing vanities is the least tribute that he can pay. A second determining ])rinciple with the ( ' jerman student is the recognized fr.ct that this period of his career is the germinal period. Originrflity is the sacred .Soma j huit that he culti ’ate.s assiduously and worships fer ' ently. It is to the deep draughts of the Soma juice of Originality, and not to indulgence in any baser fluid, that many of his seeming mad pninks must be ascribed. The third all-])owerful influence with our brother of the Fatherland is the deejwrooted feeling that he calls his or National- Bewusztsein. The German .Student is ' ery German, and cherishes as his ideal the old Teuton, who, notwithstanding a certain rough- ness of appeara.nce, indicated by his customau ' y bear skins and club or spear, was very much of a man, as Tacitus testifies. 0 ’er against this our German brother’s patriotism, which reaches back to man} ' a hard-fought battle with the legions of Rome, our American article, consisting as it does nowadays chiefly of br:ig, seems somewhat weak and flickering. That ours still li ' e.s and can be stirred into the heat and flame of Vesru ' ius in eruption will be admitted by everyone who gazed upon the marvelous White City, created in a season by the patriotism of one municipality. When we consider that (Germany stands to-day beset by bitter foes, semi-barbarous Russia and ' ain- glorious and revengeful France, we can pardon her sons for r OO their ultra Germanism, and respect their patriotism as a living force. The inner life of a German hhiiversity merits close examination as the very hotbed of the nation’s patriotism. However impatient the practical American may become under some of its involved pro- cesses, he grows into respect for it as occupying an honorable place in the world’s history and politics. 134 LiIFE AT OXFORD. Hy Rkv, C. Ernkst Wagner, ' 84, Prolessor of Belles Letires and English Literature, Franklin ami Marshall College, Lancaster. Pa. HE reat UnivcM ' .sities of England are .so different in their ‘ constitution, _t) ' overninent and workino ' s from anythin ' we have in onr country, that it is e.xtremely difficult for an American, wlio lias never rubbed his against their wadis, to form any just or definite conception of their character. Even after a two year ' s residence at O.xford, I find it hard to draw, for the rea.ders f)f the Ci.tRi.A, a sketch of life at this faimnis seat of learning ' that shall be at all comprehensit’e or satisfactory. ' The system is so complex ! the details are so numerous and so bewildering- ! At the outset let us understand that the English L’niversity is in readity a federation of colleges, each of which is a corporate body, se])ara,te and distinct from all the others. At Oxford there are 21 of these collej. ' es, which, together with 2 Halls, (.St. .Mary ' s and .St. Edmund’s,) and the Non-Collegiate body, constitute the University. When a man goes to Oxford he enters one of these colleges and it thenceforth becomes to him, in effect, his alma mater. All his interests centre there, and it is only when he takes his examinations, when he recei ’es his final degrees, or w hen ])erchance he falls into the hands of the prowling proctors and is called u])on to contribute to the “University,” — it is only then that he realizes the existence of the University, as such, and appreciates the relations he bears to it. He li ’es in his own college, associates with its men, pursues his studies under the direct super i.sion of one of its tutors, attends many, if not all of his lectures there, and if successful in taking his degree, carries with him through life the name of his college. 135 For the degree of B.A. a residence of three years is recjuired. ' I ' hat is to say, a man must ha ' e kept, by actual residence in Oxford, twelve Uni ' ersity terms, before he is eligible for his bachelor’s degree. II within that time he is able to pass all his examinations he is graduated by the Uni ' ersity. The a ' erage term of residence is, I believe, four years, and many men find it necessary to linger within t he classic precincts even longer. The examinations to be met are three : The Entrance e.xamina- tions, or “.Smalls,” which precede matriculation ; the Moderations, or “.Mods,” which come about half way in the course, and the “ Finals” or “ Oreats,” which occur at the end. A “ pass man ” is one who meets the bare requirements of the course, doing no more work than is necessary to secure his degree. As there is considerable latitude allowed in the choice of subjects, he is a poor manager indeed who cannot so pick and choose as to gain the desired end. The Bible courses and kindred subjects in the Divinity .Schools are, I noticed, fa ’orites with this class of men. But, on the other hand, the men who are “reading for honors” work on a totally dififerent plan. The demands of the “Honor Schools” are most rigid and recpiire not only a high order of intel- lect, but se ' ere application as well. The successful contestants are denominated “Firsts,” “.Seconds,” “Thirds,” etc., in the various departments in which they have excelled. For the degree ol M.A. no e.xaminations or even theses are recjuired. It comes in course. After a man has been on the books of his college for se ’en years he is eligible and, if he be able and inclined to j:)ay the somewhat e.xorbitant fees required, is decked with the Master ' s scarlet hood. No special degrees, such as obtain at the German Uni -ersities, are conferred. No matter what a man’s attainments may be, he must, would he take a degree, enter under like conditions with the youngest undergraduate, keej3 his tweh ' e terms by residence, meet his three 136 examinations, conform to all University rules, and then recei e nauj -ht but the ordinary H.A. It is for this reason that German Uni ' ersities are so much mf)re popular with American students, and why there are to-day upwards of 800 doing special work at Berlin, while a scant dozen make up the quota at Oxford. The scholastic year is divided into four terms, the hrst two — Michaelmas and Hilary — being of eight weeks each, and the two — Easter and Trinit ' — of four each. The latter are howe er continuous, making in effect three terms of eight weeks each. On first thought the Lhiiversity year impresses us as Ireing ridiculou.sly short ; but a closer obser ation will show that a deal of work is crowded into it by the men who ;u‘e studying for honors. The ty])ical Oxford man doesn’t belie e in doing things by halves. There is nothing of the dawdler or dUcttaiiie about him. When work is the order of the day he works with might and main, and the amount of essay writing, with the preliminm ' v rer.ding necessar ily accompanying it, done by an ambitious man for his tutor is, to the uninitiated, almost incredible. On the other hand, wlien the time for plav arrives, (and no good student forgets that,) the young Oxonian proceeds to play as though the .safety of the commonwealth depended on his efforts. The custf)m is to work in the morning and ev ening, and leave the afternoon tree for out-door exercise. It does a sport lo er’s heart good to see the swarms of men hurrying to and from the river or the foot-ball field, clad in their flannels, consisting only of a jacket and ;i jxiir of ‘ ‘ shorts, sto])ping above the knee and supplemented by hea ' y hose and stout cmivas shoes. On the coldest dat ' s they wear nothing more. The mere sight of their bare, blue knees gives a “tenderfoot” the shix ' er.s. Each college has its barge moored along the ri ' er front of Christ Church Meadow, in which the boats, sculls and other rowing para- 137 phernalia are kejrt. Boating is in -ogue the year round ; nothing but solid ice keeps its devotees oif the river. Foot-ball holds first jtlace during Michaelmas Term ; cricket comes to the front in Easter and Trinity. Odt-door sports are never intermitted, continuing in full swing throughout the winter, rega.rdless of rain, light snows and mud. The college “bump” races on the Isis, the race with Cambridge on the Thames at London, and the Inter-’ Varsity cricket and foot-b;dl matches are the athletic events ol the year. In conclusion I must say a few words about life in college and in “ licensed lodgings.” The college man occupies two apartments — a sitting-room and bed chamber — which are his and his alone. These rooms look out ujron cme of the quadrangles, of which in many colleges there are two — an outer and an inner. His breakfast and luncheon are serr ed in his sitting-room, according to order. His 7 o’clock dinner he takes with his fellow-collegians in the great dining hall. He does a htt of entertaining and rarely breakfasts alone. Cap and gown he wears during the morning hours, when attending lectures ; discards them in the afternoon for his flannels or walking stick : but dons them again in the evening. To be caught by the Ijroctors after dark without “academicals” (as they are called) sub- jects him to a reprimand and fine. At 9 o’clock the college gate is closed, and if he enters later, he jtays a fine, increasing by a sort of geometrical progression as the hours advance. If out ad ' ter mid- night he is liable to “ rustication.” ' I ' he man who li ' es in lodgings licensed by the University authori- ties conforms practically t(j the same rules. He occupies two rooms which are bound to be airy, cheerful apartments, lighted by gas and heated by open grate fires. His meals are all served in his sitting- room, where he may entertain friends as though fir ing in a home of his own. He is allowed an hour more in the evening, and need not give an account of liimself unless out repeatedly after lo o ' clock. Fines, in his case, begin only after midnight. If an American desires to jrursue some sjrecial course of study, or to engage in some indej endent research, which he believes can be done to better advantage in England than in ( ' lermany, the cast-iron rules and illiberal jn ' inciples prevailing at the English Universities need not deter him. He may matriculate as a s]jecial student in the Non-Collegiate body, without examination ; be free to attend any University lecture occurring in either of the twenty-one colleges ; secure the services of a thoroughly comjretent tutor, who will give him individual attention and direct him in all his work ; have access to three or four libraries, including the great Bodleian ; recei ’e every courtesy that his of pur])ose, a.bility and faithfulness may merit ; and, in short, enjoy the unparalleled oi)portunities for intel- lectual growth and culture which the life and associations of .such a venerable seat of learning are bound to afford. The varied phases of that life — the menta.l ciuickenlng experienced in such a community, in such an atmosphere ; the ojjportunities for quiet, seclusion and concentration ; the inexhaustible of Oxford itself; the marvelous beauty of its environs — all these things, in the brief space allowed me, I can merely name. The individual imaginations of my readers must do the rest, stimulated it may be by suc h a book as dear old “Tom Brown at Oxford,” or by such a noble eulogy as one may hnd in Matthew Arnold’s Introduction to his “ Essays in Criticism,” — the elegant tribute of a loval, loving- heart, that, in its inmost depths, felt the Mediieval yet perennial magic of this “ Queen of Romance,” this “Adorable Dreamer,” who, by her “ ineffable charm, keeps ever calling us nearer to the true goal of all of us, to the ideal, to perfection, — to beauty, in a word, which is only truth seen from another side — nearer, perhaps, than all the science of Tubingen.” 139 s S(‘irc, rlco9 ((Doriinm j)ri ])i kji iiv, •i . o Luiitin is. oporti’t.)

FROM BERlilH. I KRi.iN, (Germany, Javuai-y i§th. iHg . We are here in Berlin at last, and have a pleasant room on the first floor, facinj ’ ;i small ])ark, or Platz. We take meals at a restau- rant ; the food we 54 ' et there does not always jjlease the pakite. Hut both of us enjoy excellent health, and are hap|)y. How strant e the ( ' lerm. ' m lano-ua e is to us who thous ht ourseh ' es famiiliar with it. It is one thin_i ' to understand it, ;md quite another, 1 assure you, to m;ike yourself understood ; anti these (jcrmans are ' ery stupid. If you do not sa)’ the exact word the) ' are :iccustomed to use, they don’t understand. They cannot s ues:; amythinq. ' I ' here are thous;mds of students in Berlin, mnontf whom ;u ' e repre- sentatives from a.ll ciuarters of the lohe. ' with whom Oliver minqles daily, are men who ha ' e laid a.side college tricks and jokes, and hence the information he can give is not obtauned by exj erience, but by ob.servation a,nd conversation. On leaving ' the aLuditorium in the University, yo u may enter a room where wine, beer, and samdwiches may be procured ; and the dix ' inity and philosophical .students relish these refreshments as much as the students of the law and medical departments. There “ Vereins ” in connection with the colleges. A .student designates to which ' erein he belongs by the cap he wears — red, blue, or yellow, ' fheir national game is duelling. A red cap tights with a blue cajt, etc. When about to engage in a combat, each wears a of iron goggles and a collar, leat’ing the forehead and cheeks exjtosed, where hopes to recei ’e cuts at the ]toint of the 141 other’s sword. They do not try to injure any other part of the body, ' ou frequently see young men striped with court-plaster on the head and face. The jrhysician who treats such a patient, does not wi sh to heal the wounds nicely. Indeed, if a wound shows signs of healing smoothly, it is torn open, and left to heal iq:) again. Each student considers the scars on his “human face di ' ine’’ an honor, and even the ladies regard them as marks of bravery, and behold them with admi- ration. Prince Hismark addresses students annually, encouraging them in this bra ’e sport. He himself fought 30 duels during his years as a student. W ' hen you pass a man on the street, ha ing his face full of scars, you know at once that he has gone through the University. Berlin is a very beautiful city, and modern, too. It has no ancient buildings like London, nor cathedrals like those of Cologne and many other ( ferman cities. The streets are wide, well paved, and kept ’ery clean. The buildings ha ’e a substantial apj:)earance in all pr.rts of the city, and are owned by landlords. Nearly all the people live in apartments. “ Enter den Linden “ is the finest street in Berlin, and one of the finest in Euroj)e. It consists of a foot-path through the centre, about fifty feet or more in width ; three dri es ; one horse-back track ; and se ' eral rows of linden trees. It is lined by fine shops, restaurants, etc., and is well lighted by electricity. At the East end of this street are a number of fine buildings ; the main part of the Uni ’ersity ; se eral royal residences ; the armory ; the Emjjeror’s opera house ; the art galleries, and der alte .Schloss. The last named is rather old-looking ; built, I think, in the si.xteenth century. It is an immense structure, and contains two court-yards. It is a royal residence, and the present Emperor li ' es in it. It contains si.x hundred rooms, a number of which iire open to r isitors. The ascent to the r ' ond story consists of a wide, brick ])avement on an incline. At t’ o]) of this, and before passing through the rooms, isitors are 142 furnished with felt slippers to slip over their shoes, so as not to soil the highly polished floors. 1 will not undertake to describe these rooms. There are jjortraits of the entire Hohenzollern family on the walls, with jewels, many of which are gifts preserx ed here since the beginning of their reign. These sjiacious rooms are used on s])ecial occasions as recejition rooms, dining halls, and the white room is the place where the “Reichstag” is opened. The furnishing of this room alone is said to have cost si.x hundred thou.sand dollars, d ' he chajjel, also, is very elegant. Facing the front of the .Schloss, in an open scpiare, is a statue of Frederick the (ireat on horseback, dressed in hi s coronation robe. It is .said to be the finest bronze .statue in the world. d ' he SjM ' ee Rix ' er flows through Berlin, and is crossed by many bridges. A very fine one spans the river near the .Schloss. On each side are four statues, mounted on pedestals, beginning with a re])re- sentation of the goddess of x ' ictory rekiting stories of war to a youth, and thus the different stages of war-life are re])resented, until the eighth is a hercj crowned. At the West end of Unter den Linden, is the Brandenburg gate, of five lofty arches. Should you attempt to through the centre one, a soldier would spring forvx ' ard, informing you that that arch is only for the Royalty. On top of the gate is a bronze statue, repre- .senting the goddess of xictory riding in her chariot. When Napoleon took Berlin, he carried this beautiful statue to Paris. But after the (ferman-Franco war, eight ye;irs later, the Germans brought it back and proudly set it up in its old place. A continuation of Unter den Linden runs in a direct line to Charlottenburg, a distance of sex-eral miles. There we visited the Schloss, inhabited by the royal family in 1705. There is no one lix ' ing there now, but it is beautifully kept. Here r.lso yx slip on felt slippers to pass through. 143 We have had the jdeasure of hearing some of the best instru- mental and vocal music. At the opera house, Unter den Linden, we .saw and heard the “ Walkuere ” (VLdkyrie) by Wagner. It was grand. The orchestra consisted of a hundred or more instruments, and the actors were perfection. Enough descriptive for once, “ nicht wahr?” 1 am, with many regards. Emm. . 144 FICTION AND POESY. TO WISDOM- I. Bless Thou my head ! For though the Pleasures of this world he given, Its Honors and its Glories, nearly riven In the wild race for which they all are striven. Far rather dead Would I be found than loaded down with chains Of bitter-sweetness, and be mocked by strains Of sensual glee, and to the miser’s gains He ever wed. II. Be Thou my Crown ! vShow me Thy paths in fellowship to tread With living minds, — though bodies long be dead — With whom Thou art in hallow’d union wed The ages down. Lead me upon the higher jiaths to God, And spare not Thine own loving, smiting rod ; Lead upward still and onward, till the sod Hides Rarth’s cold frown. HI. Be Thou my Guide ! The laws of Nature hide Thou from mv sight. Be labors of the wise be3’ond my might. Yet ever make my life stand for the right, And by Thy side, Conduct me through the living fields el} ' sian. So often seen in clear, prophetic vision ; And there to serve Thy God — my only mission — With Thee abide. 145 hlFE’S end. HILE the Class of ’95 was listening attentively to a lecture by Dr. Richards, on Logic, the Doctor gaA ' e them some ' ery sound advice, spiced with amusing anecdote, or brilliant witti- cism, in reference to the end, or purpose, of a mrm’s life. Though to some such lectures are distasteful, yet we highly commend our Professors in the course they are taking as belonging to the proper fitting of a man for .society, for business, and, above all, for life. We do not suppose that the Professors care as to whether we appro ' e, or not. ' et it will do no harm simply to whisper that we highly approt ' e of such lectures, and swallow the sugar-coated jtills grace- fully (sometimes spitting out the medicine). In the lecture referred to, the Doctor divided mankind into three great classes, those seeking the bomirn, those longing for the bona, and those crating only the bouicnla. Life is something more them a search for the bona, for wealth. W ' ealth does not make the man, any more than " fine feathers make fine birds, ' ’ or a college diploma a mam of brains. A large number of sheep-skins belong to calves, and great wealth often is the posses- sion of fools. The acquiring of wealth is not a sign of a successful life. Some of this earth’s greatest failures hat ' e been the lives of men who spent their time, talents, and even souls in the acquisition of collossal fortunes. Such a mam often Hoards in secret places of the earth, Not only bags of treasure, but his corn ; Whose every grain he prizes ’bovc a life ; And never prays at all but for dear years.” And yet “ After all his pains are done, Has nothing he can call his own But a mere livelihood alone.” Wealth brings not joy, health, honor, or blessing in its train. For men who pniise and laud the wealthy for their wealth alone, are but mere flatterers. There is nrmght in all (dod’s creation that more justly deserx ' es ridicule than a proud, wealthy fool, who imagines that all men do reverence to Mammon, his Lares. It is said that the ])eacock, when strutting abf)ut, fond of his fine feathers, will drop them when he looks at his feet. Hut there is nothing to bring shame to the cheek of a man who bona thov t bo min — “(k)ods” without ” (food.” Then there are the habitual seekers after the boniciila — the “goodies” of this life. These are either the pamj)ered sons of “.shoddy” aristocracy, or the knights and ladies of the stable and kitchen — pensons whose mental range has been limited to c-a-t, cat, and the primer. Do 1 mean to s;iy that no one else is in the habit of seeking sensuous ])leasure but the uneducated And the neglected ? Yes. For though all men delight in a little i.)leasure of the senses now and then, those whose mental calibre is una.ble to grasp the beauties of Shakespeare and Longfellow, with the glories of Dickens, Scott, and Irving, are the habitual seekers of sense- jfleasure. Men may pass through college, and } ' et be flt for only the first ])rinciples of life. “ goodie “-seekers ! Why, the “ cook-lady ” comes out in the most grandiloquent style — more so than the cultured lady of the house. The butcher ' s assistant is resjjlendent with a glaring- cravat, a brass wa.tch-chain, and a paste-diamoiid. “ Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these,” and he wouldn’t if he could help it. The aim of life is not to acquire bona or bonicnla, but bonuvi — The right, the true, the good. A man may have the bona and bonicula 147 (jf this world, but he must have some of the bonum to be a man. Juvenal declares that “We do not commonly hud men of superior sense among ' st those (jf the highest fortune,” yet we do find some true men there — men, whose thoughts are not centred in themselves ; men, whose ambitions are not for self alone ; men, whose longings are not for their own acKamcement alone ; men, whose thoughts, words, deeds are intended to make this earth better ; whose ambition is to bring the state of mankind nearer Eden ; whose longing is for jnirity of mankind, and more of it. Let us quote but two authori- ties : Doddridge, who asserts tha.t “he is indeed the wisest and hajjjhest m;m, who, by constant retention of thought, disco eiw the greatest (jp])ortunit ' of doing good, and with ardent and rmimated resolutifjn, breaks through every oj positioii, that he may impro ' e these opj)ortunities and .Seneca., whose ideal of the grea.test mam- hood “is he who chooses right with the invincible resolution ; who resists the sorest tem|)tation from v ' ithin and without ; who bears the hea.viest l)urdens cheerfull ’ ; who is ca.lmea.t in ,torm3, and fearless under menaces a.nd frowns ; whose reliance on truth, on irtue, a.nd on ( .(jd is most unf Jtering.” .Sirs, acciuire the for that is the end of life. 14S The Liay of Jviy Chum.

A question sharp in tlie morning light: What means this earthly life, With its woes and wails and inquietude, Its constant discord and strife ; Its paths of pain, its trials and fears. Its manifold sorrows and cares ; Its bitter anguish and heart-wrung cries Which our souls pour out in their prayers ; Its wants which harass the soul of mankind. Its tears which fall like the rain ; Its perplexing problems which cannot be solved. Which confuse and bewilder the brain ; Its sev’ring of ties we hold dear as life Its constant changing of scenes? So often we crave to behold in the light Its object, and what it means. An answer low in the twilight dim : ’Tis but the beginning of life ; The doubts and the fears shall all flee away. And naught be remembered of strife ; In that higher sphere ye shall weep no more. No sorrows, nor causes for grief ; The pain ye have suffered shall be as a dream, Aud this life as a folded brief ; Ye shall know no want in that upper realm, Aud your fears shall be smoothed away. And your hearts shall be filled with a perfect rest In that land of unending day ; Not a breath of evil stall reach you then. For sin shall there be unknown ; The Master’s bidding ye ' ll do with joy. And praise Him, while ’round His throne No parting ye’ll know in that blest abode. No changes but those of bliss So ye must patient and prayerful be And think of the LIFE after this. — Evangehne. 152 jfvly Christmas Vacation. a F ' TFIR studying hard for se ' eral months — some of the boys at college did that — my Christmas A ' acation was most welcome. In fact, the last week before examinations, although my time was pretty well taken uj) witli the rerdewing of my studies, the e.xpectancy of my future bliss would so obtrude its not unwelcome self ujx)n me, that in the ( lerman story of the fairies, I iin’ariably read “May” instead of “ h ' ay in the ])lace of “whispering- galleries ” in Physics, 1 read “ whispering gallants instead of calcu- lating the value of pi and the areas of circles, my calculus formulas were used to determine the r.rea of her kisses ; in philoso])hizing upon the ccjurse of dreams, I drifted into “ fool-osophizing ” in the manner of day-dreams. I sympr.thized with Achilles, deprived of his own, and wondered whether I would be comj)elled to relinquish my prize. You can imagine that I was a i)retty homesick student — it was a disease of the heart. Fatal it has since pro ' ed to be, and not all the i hysical culture in the world could rid me of that disease. In such a state of mind and heart, from the train which had been dragging its slow length up the vallev, I alighted at .Silva, an inland town of three thousand inhabitants, situated on the river Lehigh, about seventy-five miles from its mouth. .Silva is a beautiful place, where the mountains cradle the infan.t ri -er, not always in gentle embrace, yet in lor ' ing fellowshi}) ; where Springtime lavishes the hiding arbutus ; where Summer brings cool breezes and the snowy rhododendron ; where Autumn dresses the landscape in resplendent hues and waves the glorious golden rod ; and where the hand of ’King Frost turns the water-drops into diamonds, and some half- 153 hidden water-courhc into a cryt:tc,l j)alace. Here was my lionie. I found my parents awaiting me, and was greeted with a kindly smile and a hearty handshake from falier, while mother, not wishing to wait until we had come home, gave me a warm kiss. Though numbers stood around — old schoolmates and rivals — I cared not ; for 1 lov’ed my mother. And r.ow, since the remembrance is all that is left of Iier, 1 am ' ery glad 1 showed her my regard. One other penson was there to greet me. .She had come to pay my parents a ’isit, in response to an earnest imitation from mother. Her parents had formerly resided at .Sih’a, where they were the warm friends of f .ther and mother, but ha.d now mov’ed across the mountadn into the beautiful Wyoming ' alley. Jennette May Swartz and I had been born but a few months apart — she being slightly my senior. (_)ur parents being so very intimate — ;md it was true friend- ship — Jennette and 1 cooed together for hours at a time in our slips, prattled together in kilts, chatted together as schoolm:ites, and now — looked at eacli other as respecti ely a young lady and gentleman. I don’t think mcjther susjjected that an ything more than very good friendship e.xisted between us. .So 1 was happy to find Jennette awaiting me ; and when we slumk ha.nds, 1 saw a ruddier tinge o’ers|)read her fair countenance and a new light illuminate dark eyes. ' Hie days passed away too (juickly. But t)ne circum.‘tance still lingers in my memor ’ — our sleigh-ride. We had started out early on a plea.sant afternoon, for Freeland, nine miles away, on the mountain. As we dro ' e along, the liorse chose his path, while we were only cognizant that we were progressing. .Suddenly Jennette’ s hand seized mine, white in fright she cried, “ Do stop, Ned ! There’s a big, black snake stretched over the road.” Instinctively I reined in, and looked. There lay a dark branch of a tree, with one end slightly in air, decidedly resembling a snake. Closer observation 154 revealed its true nature, whereupon I offered to publish a new Zoology she should write which should contrun an account of a cer- tain species of black snake, which did not hibernate in Winter, even though there be one foot of snow on the ground. A few miles farther on, a new industry had been commenced since Jennette mo ’ed away — a phosphate factory. When still a half-mile away, Jennette declared she recognized the odor of a di.stillery. “ That can ' t be, " I answered, “ for there has never been a distillery near this ])art of the country. Reraling is the nearest ])lace where they have distilleries, and breweries. " .She insisted she recognized it, for had she not spent a full week under the shadow of a distillery in that same city of Reading ? W ' omrm’s logic is conclu.sive, — im- measurably beyond that f f a college graduate or profes.sor. .So 1 simply drove on. In a few minutes j ennette said " Phew. That’s worse even than that Reading listillery. " I thought so too. In conscious superiority I .said, ‘ ‘ That ' s the new bone mill. " As the breeze freshened, and the odor strengthened, I vowed I’d never jxir- take of the product of a distillery, the odor of which was so like that of a manufactory. After a hearty laugh, we changed the subject to more plea.sant topics and .sweeter delights. While my wife is laughing heartily about that " di.stillery reminiscence, " she absolutely forbids me to narrate the conversation above alluded to. I appeal unto the alumni and professors of your college — those who have wives — as to whether a man is safe in doing anything his wife declares he shall )iot do. We revelled in bliss and haj), until we reached Freeland, and back again almost to Silva. When we were nearly home, the sun was setting in frigid beauty, and twilight bedimmed the land, Jennette interrupted one of my rhajisodies by e. claiming, " What a pretty, striped cat ! Drive closer and let me get it. " " I guess it’s not lost. 1 think it jjrobably belongs to the family li ’ing in this 155 house.” But I was suspicious. Just as we came opposite to that animal, Jennette with a cpiick motion pulled the rein nearest the “cat” and turned the horse in that direction. Distinctly was im- jrressed on my mind the story my chum had narrated but a few weeks before. A colored laborer was accused of stealino; onions from his master ' s garden. One dav Sambo appeared before his accuser with a black and white .striped “cat” in his hands, saying ' , ” I)is am de feller what stole dose onions, ma.ssa ; just you smell him bref” This particular “cat” must have been eating garlic, leeks, onions, and asafcetida all at once. Our sleigh-ride ended ery shortly after that, and when I came back to college, 1 made some pocket money by selling my suit to the owner of a second-hand clothing establish- ment — a Ru.ssian Jew. It was no cat. 156 FEM SEM. I. How do thy chnrins delight me ! Thine eyes so sweetly smite me !

' .6. . nd if we should happen to meet on the street, I will run to lier, smile to her, bow at her feet. . nd should the rude hand of death her from me sever. To some other woman. I’ll married be — never.” 17. “ Now Mabel,” said Harold, “ let’s hear you confess Your efforts endeavoring my life to bless.” “ Well sir,” .said Mabel, “ I ' ll be a true wife. To the man that I wed, to the end of my life. 160 18. I’ll do for his happiness all that I can, I’ll see that his clothing is all side and span, I’ll give him to eat of the best I can make. Am willing my share of his burdens to take, 19. Will strive to be patient, to bear and forbear, Am willing that others his time too shall share ; In short, I will take him on trust and good will. And we ' ll clamber together the way up life’s hill.” 20. “ Very good, Mab.,” said Harold, “ I’m sure we’ll agree. Now we have a compact betwixt us you see ; And when I fall short, just remind me, you know. That once on a time I saiii thus and so.’’ 21. ” Yes, and you must remind me,” said Mab., “ I’ll forget. But what nonsense,” she laughed, ‘‘ we’re not married yet.’’ ” ’Tis true, Miss,” said Harold, ‘‘but I’ve thought of that, You put on your wraps, dear, and I’ll get my hat. 22. Delays are so dangerous! off we will go. And have our hearts joined in a nice little bow.” " Hold on, sir,” said Mabel, ‘‘ what think you I’d wear ? Shall I go ill this wrapper? and look at my hair !” 23. ” Oh, you women,” he groaned, ” you always must fuss, I had it all lixed ; now it’s all in a muss. Oo, dear, and get ready and I’ll get the bill And we’ll go to the parson and he it will fill.” 24. ‘‘ Now go, sir,” said Mabel, “and order a suit. And get a new rig from a hat to a boot ; Then, if you are ready, two weeks from to-day We’ll go to get married, sir, that is the way.” 25. “ Two weeks ! Oh my darling, ’tis surely’ too long ! Think once again. Sweetheart, you ' re certainly wrong !” “ I know my’ own mind, sir, you’ve learned that before. In just fourteen days, sir, no less and no more.” EVANGKhINE. A JUNIORIC DAY-DREAM. Some Howl ' S witl the Pro¥s. FEW days ago, when the mild Zephyrs of a premature Spring were gently kissing the long snow-fettered Earth, was seen a young man of pleasant, intellectual mien wandering into our college halls, while the bell was calling the boys to morning prayers. But no sooner had he stepj)ed through the front doorway, when he was no longer visible. The spot where he had been distinctly seen but a second before, was now as em])ty as the surrounding air. The Editor of the Ci. rla, who was closely following the stranger, now rubbed his eyes and severely pinched his leg, so severely indeed that this night — four weeks later — the leg is still black and blue. But to no avail. The stranger had disappeared. No sooner were the chapel services at at end, than I heard a A’oice at my side remark : “That was a very nice service. But do you fellows of the choir think you can sing?” Contemptuously I turned upon the supposed Soph. There was nobody there. The nearest man was ten feet away, and he was one of the innocents. Ghosts I never believed in, and so I determined it had been a remarkable conception of my mind. “ You are right. It is simply my mind informing yours of what- ever I may desire.” ‘ ‘ Who in creation or out of it are you ?’ ’ I said aloud, and then looked sheepishly around to see if anybody had noticed my remark. No one had. “You need not talk. I can read your thoughts as readily as you are reading mine,” was answered. ? had chosen some one else to I heartily wished the invisible operate on. “ You need not mind me,” said he ; “I have come here solely for some fun. I have long heard of Dr. Richards as being ’ery witty, and thought I’d call around. I’m going with you to recitation to enjoy myself” “Dr. Richards won’t be so .spicy as usual if there’s a .stranger present. ” Can jw see me?” cjuickly responded the ?. “ No.” “Neither can the Doctor. Though his mental acumen is great, he cannot see me as I now am.” .So in I went. The Doctor was unusually spicy tha.t morning, I thought. The le.sson was one of the first in American Literr.ture. After re iewing some of the famous English authors, the Doctor said : “Of course, we can’t e.xpect such an amount of literature here in America. W’e ' re not so old yet as England, and we’re no jjrodigies. Of course, our e.xperience has been ’ery similar to that ot England. W’ith us, as with them, the biggest loafer wants the biggest loaf. (“ Put that down,” said my companion.) Put we have had no wars for the succession, nor have we de])osed any kings. You have noticed that their deposed kings generally die. They get the rip, you know. (iMy head shook, as I felt my companion laugh. “ Put that down. That’s a pretty good joke.”) Ye have never been governed by a woman, unless some President’s wife did it. Put Elizabeth was a true Henry the Eighth in petticoats. (“Hood,” interpolated the ?.) The English have some wit, ” continued the I )octor, ‘ ‘ from which ours may have sprung. ( Wink. ) For instance, it is said of Charles Lamb that he once was dining with a country gentleman. Wdren the company was successfully seated about the festir e board, the jovial Charles solemnly asked ; ‘ Is there any 164 clergyman here?’ Upon being answered in the negative, he re- sponded ; ‘Well, then, let us thank God.’ (“Ha, ha,’’ laughed my comrade ; “ Don’t forget that.’’ So I wrote it on the cover of my Literature, j But then, our Puritan Fathers brought a good deal of the English spirit witli them. It is said of Benjamin Franklin, that when he was a young man, his parents were salting down a barrel of pork, when the young Benjamin asked : ‘ Why not say grace now, and so save time, instead of doing it for each small piece every morning?’ (“Good for Benjamin. Write that down.” I wrote it.) New England has done much for this country, ’tis true. And then, they are great fellows to write down what they have done. They get up a champagne supjjer, form a societ) ' , ha ' e a good time, and publish ne.xt day how much their great-grand-forefathers ha ' e done for America. .So they have. But some tilings were not so great. Take, for instance, the doctrine of the Mathers that all things are done of necessity. It all comes out the same way anyhow, and why limit the free-will agency of man ? For instance, the criminal is brought liefore the judge for sentence, and .say.s : ‘ .Sir, e.xcuse me, but I have been so born, I must of nec essity murder.’ The judge answers : ‘ I am ’ery sorry, bnt I ha ’e been so born, I must of nece.ssity .sentence you.’ The .sheriff comes along, ‘I beg your pardon, but I have lieen so born, 1 must ol nece.ssity take you to limbo.’ The executioner dangles his rope and .says; ‘ Am very .sorry, but I am .so born, I must of nece.ssity hang you. ’ .So the fellow hangs anyhow. These New Englanders are ' ery consistent. Yet nothing is so consistent as a donkey, except a pig. When they put their foot down, they’re there for all day. ( “ Well, well. Write that down.’’ )’’ Just then the bell rang, and we were off to Dr. Seip’s room for the next recitation. J ust as we came inside the door, this ? asked me : ‘ ' I thought the faculty were opposed to foot-ball here ?’ ’ ‘ ‘ So they are. “Why, then, do they have the college eleven on the walls of the President’s room ?” ‘ ‘ Where ?’ ’ ‘ ‘ There. ’ ’ And instinctively I looked to the wall where hangs a picture of the Professors — eleven of them. Plow I laughed ! The Doctor commenced his lecture on the Teleological Evidence of Natural Theology. In drawing some jroints from the organism of the human body, the Doctor said : “To the liver, the zrA ' is a most important organ.” (“Pretty good pun, ' pon my word,” remarked this mental wonder. I nearly fainted. ) Then the Doctor remarked ; “ Lack of hair is sometimes hair-editary.” I heard some one call feebly for “Water.” I said I thought it was a pretty good joke. The Doctor went on to talk about the Intellect, Sensibility, and Will, and said : “ Many a man finds his affections Miss-placed.” “ W’ell, now, you have a ]jretty bright set of Professors here.” I, in full patriotic feeling, answered : “ Of course. What else would you expect at Muhlenberg?” W’ith a groan, vanished the last trace of any communication from my ]:)eculiar visitor. There was a terrific rapping at the door, and a voice said ; “ It’s six o’clock.” Behold, it was morning. 1 66 “Our College Song.” Dedicated to the Rev Dr. T. L. StiP, by permission, E. H. Kistleb.

PREPARED ESPECIALLY FOR OUR CUSTOMERS, BY “THE CLASS CHEMIST,” FRED. C. KRAPF. CHEMICALLY PURE. Among Our f4ew Books. L ' RIN(i the past year quite a number of new books have XJj been jilaced upon the Editor’s Table, and among these are some vvhicli were found to Ije worthy of s])ecial attention, and of the highest j) : PONYIN(} CON.SIDEREI) AS ONE OE THE EINE ARTS. By Eorley a. Ebkrt, M.P. Advance sheets of tliis ' olume were kindly furnished us by the author, for which — although at first we found considerable difficulty in deciphering the hieroglyidiical writing — we take this occasion to thank Mr. Ebert. In this admirable treatise the author gi -es us a complete history of the art of Ponying, from the ancient “crib” of the English school-boy — yes, from its very cradle — down to the modern fully eejuipped Pony. We can see at once that the author is fully acquainted with his subject and speaks from e.vperience. The book-shelf of no real student should be without this indisi)ensable volume. Being published at a merely nominal price and having been highly recommended, it will undoubtedly ha -e an immense sale. brou(;ht to justice. This is a thrilling account of the ‘ ‘ hazing ’ ’ episode which occurred on the evening of October 5th, and of the method adopted in bring- ing to justice those concerned in the scheme. The author, who was also the leading detecti ' e in the case, desires to keep his name from the public, but a careful critical analysis of the matter and style tends to prove the author a Sopho-more. It is a detective story in which the deeply laid plot is unravelled in an able manner. Mystery after To avoid any misapprehension we shouki state llial M.P. is the abbreviation for “ Master OE PONMNG.” 05 mystery is cleared away. The dangerous positions in which the chief detecti -e and his assistant are placed furnish material for sharp and graphic descriptic ns. The e ' idence produced by the author takes u]) a large part of the book, and shows his detecti ’e skill to be i n that direction. One beautiful half-tone of the “hazing” itself adorns the book. The book — although not likely to last as litera- ture — deser e.s, because of the college incidents related, a wide reading by the student world. THE CEMEX EECTUEARIUS — His H.ABiT.-vr,, Me. ns of .Subsistence .-vn’d Me.uxs of E.xter.mination. Those who are desirous of knowing why Mr. .Schadt, AL E., has withdrawn himself from intercourse with the other students will find an answer in this book. The author himself admits in the introduc- tion that, while making the Cime.x lectularius his special study, he was compelled to deny himself many pleasures and privileges. After reading this l)ook the ([uestion, “ W ' hy did not .Scientists write up this subject before, ” arose in our minds. The author has taken a common subject — one which lies in his grasp, we might say — and -et he has treated it successfully. " e consider it o ne of the most alu;d)le of the latest contributions to the library of science. A glance at the title will show that there was need of many micro- .sco])ical e.xperiments, the result.; of which are easily understood because of the many ;duable illustrations. The work was but recently issued from the press of the .Science Publishing House. .MOOXLKiHT SKETCHES AE()N( ' x THE RAPID TRANSIT. Hv Leopoi.I) E. Vei)I)I(;ex. This delightful and ' ery readable little book combines beauty of description with effusion of sentiment. Here and there the author la.pses into poetry on “the pale, wan moon by whom inconstant lo ers swear,” in which we can clearly see that he has been deeply touched by some fair one. As the author himself says in his preface : “ P ' rom my freciuent visits to Hethlehem, on certain evenings of the week, I acejuired a considerable amount of information concerning the beauties of the roa.d and — in the car.” The work was published 176 by request, and vve feel safe in jjredicting more than one edition of this book. It is jmblished at a nominal jjrice by the Ciarla Printing House. MISTAKE.S IN ETIQUETTE. Bv Mr. Paul Z. Strodach. This was a complete surprise. The book is admirably written. P ' rom the author’s wide e. j)erience acquired in one of our largest cities, he is well able to instruct the rustic youth of Muhlenberg. Though we must confess that up to the present time Allentown’s civilization has been hardly up to an high enough standard to fully appreciate the mitlKjr’s advice, still we hope that in time the book — and the system of eticjuette recommended — will recei ' e their de- served po])ularity. THE .SCIENCE AND ART OE CRACEEUE WAEKINC. This is a neat little book gotten out by two members of the .Senior Ckuss, and has a.lready receixed high ])raises from many sources. The authors undertook this work onl}’ upon the ui ' gent recjuest of one who believes that “ By their walk ye sha.ll know men.” Their efforts during the past term have been untiring, and it is with ple;isure tliat we — even at this late hour — add our ])r:dse of the work. The .style is plain ; and the book will undoubtedly receive rer.ding because of the u.seful ;md ofttimes needful knowledge contained therein. The of tlie authors ;it, we believe, has cer- tainly been realized. If fiintls sufficient for elTorts of tlie authors’ can be procured this book will be distributed gratis, 177 QUOTATIONS.
