Academic Day is a unique holiday. It is an event peculiar to the University of Chicago, growing out of customs which make life here different from life at other universities. It is a whole commencement week crowded into the short space of a day. This year's celebration was a distinct success in the college calendar, firmly establishing the holiday's position. University life and spirit were manifest on every side, and the campus was thronged with the students and faculty and their friends. The crowd gathered before the athletic events in the morning and remained all day, leaving only in time to prepare for the ball in the evening. Between the different events of the program, the various clubs entertained their friends on the campus and in the dormitories.

The Farces at Kent Auditorium proved the most interesting feature of the day. The hall was crowded with an interested audience, which received the actors with hearty applause. The performances showed much skill and careful preparation, the acting being a great surprise to many who were not aware of the talent of the participants. The success of the farces was largely due to the efforts of Miss Theodosia Kane and Dr. E. H. Lewis. Miss Ide and Messrs. Pike and Atwood deserve especial mention for their excellent work. Mr. Law was an excellent old man and Miss Williston a success as the servant. The stage settings were highly appropriate to the two pieces presented, " Which is Which," and " Uncle's Will."

Professor See made one of the greatest discoveries in the history of as tronomy this past year, namely, a triple star, something that was never dreamed of by astronomers. It was while carrying on his regular duties in the University and along the direct line of his work, that Professor See discovered this phenomenon. It belongs to the constellation Ophiuchus, and in astronomy is known as 70 Ophiuchi. For the past few years Dr. See has noted the irregular and erratic habits of 50 Ophiuchi and has made a close study of the stars at different points in the country. He does not claim originality, for his solution, the possibility of such a solution being demonstrated by Watterston, an English astronomer. When Dr. See began to study stars he felt the need for a practical solution of the various theories, and the first fruit of his work in this line is the correct solution of the orbit of 70 Ophiuchi. November 2. "Three Million Dollars More! John D. Rockefeller makes another gift," were the headings in the papers of November 3. John D. Rockefeller, founder of the University, added what is virtually $3,000,000 to his already princely gifts to the institution. The letter announcing the new endowment was received by the University Trustees on November 2. One million was given outright, and 2,000,000 more will be given if an additional 2,000,000 can be raised by the Trustees of the University from other sources. If this is done, the amount given by Mr. Rockefeller to the University will have reached the magnificent sum of $7,450,000. Mr. Rockefel ler's letter ran as follows: "26 Broadway, New York, October 30, 1895. — To the Trustees of the University of Chicago, T. W. Goodspeed, Secretary. Gentlemen : I will con tribute to the University of Chicago $1,000,000 for endowment payable January 1, 1896, in cash or at my option in approved interest-bearing securities at their fair market value, I will contribute, in addition, $2,000,000 for endowment or otherwise as I may designate, payable in cash or at my option in approved interest-bearing securities at their fair market value, but only in amounts equal to the contributions of others in cash or its equivalent not hitherto promised, as the same shall be received by the University. This pledge shall be void as to any portion of the sum herein promised which shall prove not to be payable on the above terms on or before January 1, 1900. Yours very truly, John D. Rockefeller." President Harper replied: "Chicago, November 2, 1895. — John D. Rockefeller, New York City: The magnificence of your gift is only equaled by the wisdom of its terms, which render it doubly valuable to the institution. W. R. Harper. On this same day the University defeated Wisconsin in football by score of 22-12. The coincidence of the eleven's masterly defeat of Wisconsin with the announcement of Mr. Rockefeller's splendid gift made all the members of the University wish to celebrate. Early in the evening the men began to gather in front of Snell until there was present the largest and most enthusiastic crowd ever seen on the campus. The neighborhood was ransacked for materials for a bonfire and a huge pile was built in front of Snell and was well soaked with oil and tar. Then the men fell in line and marched around the campus singing, and cheering for "John D. Rockefeller." Prof. F. J. Miller, Prof. R. F. Harper, Mr. G. E. Vincent, Mr. Joe Flint, Mr. C. W. Chase, Mr. J. E. Raycroft, '96, Mr. T. M. Hammond, responded to calls for speeches. Later in the evening the victorious team was tendered a reception by the members of Kelly Hall.

An official celebration. The University acknowledged Mr. Rockefeller's, large gift by an official celebration. The most enthusiastic and gloriously attended celebration ever given by the University occurred on the campus November 5. Never was such college spirit manifested on the quadrangles since the opening of the University. At 7:30 o'clock a procession of over 1,000 students was formed at Cobb. The procession, divided into squads, formed by the various houses, escorted the Faculty to Kent. Every squad had its individual cheer, which rang out in applause of every address. The exercises were as follows: Introductory address by the Presi dent; Prayer by the Chaplain; Mr. McLeish, Vice-president of the Board of Trustees spoke upon Mr. Rockefeller's liberality; "First Donation from Mr. Rockefeller," by Dr. Northrup; " How shall we regard the gift? "by Professor von Hoist; "Women's Opportunities To-day," by Miss Reynolds; "Enormous Needs of Such a University," by Professor Laughlin; "Sister Universities," by Professor Angell; "Rockefeller's Object," by Professor Hurlburt; "Sociology," by Professor Small; "Academic Col lege," by Mr. Lee; "University College," by Mr. Clarke; "Graduate School," by Mr. Hull; "Divinity School," by Mr. Reid; Closing address, by Professor Chamberlin. Mr. Parker of the Board of Trustees announced that Wednesday would be a holiday in the University, which was sanctioned by the President; this met with great applause. Mr. Parker then closed the exercises by reading a message to be sent to John D. Rockefeller. After the exercises in Kent, the different squads proceeded to a great bonfire in front of Snell. J. E. Raycroft was the Marshall of the evening, and his aids were Messrs. Gale, Rand, Barrett, Vaughn, Brown, Wilson, Winston, C. E. Woodruff, Davidson, and Misses Wilmarth, Carey and G. Freeman. The scene about the bonfire was one to be remembered for a long time. Every one at the exercises attended the jollification and joined in the cheering. During the evening Johnny Hand's orchestra and the Glee Club vied with one another in entertaining the crowds which were grouped about the stand ards and transparencies of the various houses.

November 13. Recital in Kent. Founding Philolexian Society. November 15. The University received $1,000,000 more. The University of Chicago was the recipient of $1,000,000 more, given by Miss Helen Culver, a resident of the West Side. This donation was made in memory of Mr. Charles J. Hull, a trustee of the old University of Chicago, and his name will be used in connection with it. It is stipulated that the gift be used for the advancement of biological science and that half of the sum shall go to provide buildings and equipments and the other half to be invested and the proceeds therefrom to be expended in professorships and lecture ships. One of these lectureships is to be for the education of the West Side in sanitary science. This gift is in real estate and includes land all over the city. The famous Hull House is located on part of the land given, and so the University will in a manner exercise a protectorate over that institution, although its work will not be interfered with at all. This money, when expended in accordance with the expressed desires of the donor, will furnish the University with the best equipment for biological work in the world. The money will provide a Hull Biological Laboratory here on the campus, a Hull Marine Biological Laboratory somewhere on the Atlantic coast, a Hull Inland Experimental Station, probably at Lake Geneva, and Hull professor ships. Besides biology, the departments of zoology, physiology, botany, neurology, sociology and psychology will be benefited, directly or indirectly, by this new gift. It will also be of great value in promoting the establishment of a medical school at Chicago. D K E reception at Chapter House. Omega Club initiation; initiates, Fred C. Vincent, Donald A. Kennedy.

The idea was first suggested by the great interest shown in the special musical features introduced into the chapel exercises during the first year. The large attendance at these exercises and the willingness with which artists accepted invitations to appear before University audiences suggested the idea of a regular concert, to be given by the University. Through the efforts of Mr. Wardner Williams, Wednesday afternoon of each week has been set apart for a musical program These programs have been of an excep tionally high grade, and many artists of recognized ability have consented to give concerts at the University.

Pike and Philip Rand formulated plans for an University annual, and in the Fall Quarter selected a board, having Messrs. Atwood and Arnold as business managers. The first volume was issued in the Winter Quarter, and; met with the greatest success at the University, and especially among the eastern colleges. ; ,. Last year's editors made a radical change in college annuals by introducing the idea of having separate books for the various University organizations. This plan is followed out in Volume IIV It is the idea of the editors to make the Cap and Gown a permanent board, electing editors from time to time by competition. The Editors for Volume II.

The paper has made rapid progress, and has of late been for the most part given to literary matter. The management has presented an unusually fine number of cuts, and the literary productions have been of the highest grade. The Thanksgiving issue contained fifteen thousand copies, and the Weekly stands among the first of all college publications, being President of the Western College Press Association.

Assistant Manager The Maroon HE Maroon was started as a University newspaper May 15, 1895. It was believed that there existed a need for such a paper, and the reception accorded it by the students was, for a time, encouraging to the editors. The paper was issued three times a week, and the editors had hoped to make it a daily, but on account of the low price of the city papers, the weekly hecord> and the lack of apparent interest in the publication, it was deemed advisable to discontinue the publication, and on March 20, 1896, the last issue appeared. Its charter editors were : Philip Rand, Managing Editor ; Walter Deffenbaugh, Assistant Managing Editor ; C. R. Barrett, Secretary; J. E. Raycroft, Forest Grant, Henry Love Clark ; Oswald Arnold, Business Manager. Other editors were : Charles Ray Barrett, Assistant Managing Editor ; L. Brent Vaughan, William Otis Wilson, Moses D.

( f" ' k - 1 STUDENTS $» «^s^ The First Regular Senior Class of the University of Chicago, 1896, III EMBERS of '96, III, may not all boast ancestors who came over in the Mayflower and listened to sermons hours long in the interest of their spiritual development, but this is no matter, we are ourselves pioneers. Foreseeing the great possibilities of this University, even in those early days of '92, we were the penetrative Freshman colony which was first to settle in that wild region soon to be known as the Uni versity Campus. Cobb Hall was our Plymouth Rock, Kent Theatre our Meeting-House, and the Campus our Clearing. As for sermons, what have we not done for the sake of our higher education, we who have now for four years heard almost daily lectures, surpassing in depth and brilliancy, to say nothing of length, any which the Pilgrim Fathers, sitting in frigid church pews, ever listened to, with stiffened cerebrum and ears tingling with cold. 'Ninety-six can also show records of martyr-like endurance of heat, cold, and Chicago weather in general. " Time was when our gray Cobb Hall was new, And the Campus was far from fair, And that was the time that the golden rod Was growing and blooming there." But in the winter, that first winter that '96 spent here, a picture of desolation, indeed, was to be seen from the windows of Cobb Hall. The snow piled up high over the almost unbroken field, and drifted deep in the solitary pathway that led to Cobb. Tall trees, lean and hungry looking, rose up like ghouls, and shook their icy fingers at each other in the blasts that swept over them from the roughened lake. And through it all, wind, rain, snow and builders' rubbish, we bravely fought our way. Kent was not a story high, Cobb was noisily new, the ground was but just broken for Foster, Beecher and Kelly. At Snell the latch string was literally always out, for this primitive security was all that fastened the rude plank door at the entrance, a fact which occasioned some little anxiety to the first occupants of that hall, temporarily granted by the council to the women of the Quadrangle. Walker was not yet planned, and Haskell museum had not a name nor an existence out side of dreams. It has been our rare privilege to watch the evolution of a great university, and, as one after another the present halls and laboratories have been dedicated, it has been our pride not only to be present in person; but to furnish from our number marshals, ushers, and other student dignitaries, whose importance on such formal occa sions is universally acknowledged. In addition to this, how exciting it has been to look forward to each convocation with the assurance of having revealed to us new and glorious vistas of enterprise for our university, and then to hear from time to time of the development of these enterprises through some magnificent gift or endowment. Not a few times have we helped to celebrate such instances of good fortune, and there have been none who have then cheered to a higher pitch of hoarse enthusiasm than we, or felt a warmer glow about their hearts in the light of a crackling bonfire. Yet we have ever tried to see in such items as a million dollars, a foot-ball victory, a bonfire, and a holiday (see November second, 1895), only aids to the advancement of learning. Much as we have been interested in the material success of the University, we have felt no less concern for its intellectual, social and athletic progress. If there ever were any lack of organization in the University of Chicago, a statement which some moderns doubt, it was a lack caused by the need of time, and not of energy or ability, and this spirit of organization has descended from Faculty to Freshman. The class of '96 itself showed this characteristic in its very first steps in college life. It learned to walk while very young in the paths of system and order. Scarcely had the scaffolding been removed from the halls of Cobb, and the windows brightened to let in light on problems dark and obscure; scarcely had the learned Faculty planned and settled its course of action, before the sounds of nominations and of voting echoed through the spacious chapel, as our Freshman class formed the first student organization of the University of Chicago. But, despite its early vigor, it succumbed to the organizing influence of the Faculty, and was absorbed into the abstractness of the then Academic College. This, the first and only Freshman class of the University, has now reappeared in the Senior class '96, III., otherwise known as that favored body, Division I. of the Senior College. If you will but take the trouble to look the matter up you will find that the members of our class have been prominent in all the student organizations of the university. Of course this is one of those points upon which every well-bred class says its modesty forbids it to speak, but, as an example to the classes that are to follow us, it should be pointed out that we, the first class, sought to further college life in all worthy directions. It is fairly im possible for the Freshman of today to realize the tasks set before the early campus colonists of this University. There was, as all perceived, both genius and power latent in the first student bodies of the University, but who or what was to bring it out ? Here we all were, poets, athletes, musicians, actors, orators and social stars all mixed up in a bewildering chaos of undeveloped celebrity. But the spirit of order rose supreme, natural selection began to work, and today the organization of college life in all its minutest details, as portrayed by the Cap and Gown, is a marvel and an astonishment even to us who have been not unimportant in its direction. We sometimes wonder, as a class, whether in the decades to come when there will be no more precedents to establish at the University, for custom, young and fragile today, will have grown old and strong — we sometimes wonder if Seniors then will know half the fresh and novel pleasures that have been ours, in whose hands have been the beginnings of a college life. Novel pleasures were ours in abundance in the fall of 1893 when but a few minutes walk separated the "Grey City " from the " White," and even as we sat in our lecture halls on warm October afternoons, there would float in at the open window, and mingle with words of grave philosophy, sounds strange and fantastic, notes and cries of weird portent, the jingling and thumping of heathenish instruments of musical torture, in a word the medley of the Midway. But we often resisted these evil spirits whose noonday clamors seemed intended for an exorcism of the demons of their own barbaric natures, and sequest ering ourselves in the northernmost libraries of Cobb we reflected upon the problem of the " Descent of Man " as illustrated by the University of Chicago versus the Midway Plais- ance. Only a short while however, and all this was changed into a broad and quiet boule vard which is shown to the stranger who asks where the Midway was. And now it is time for the Senior to moralize, for to moralize is the special province of the Senior, to which he is entitled both by his position and by his aged youthfulness. The four years of study stretch out before the Freshman like the perspective of a railroad track over a prairie, the way unknown, the Senior Station far, far in the narrowing distance. But to the Senior, who from his station looks back over the road, his course seems short indeed, and many gayly decked milestones mark the way. Yet is our satisfaction as Seniors in accomplishment not unmixed with sorrow, sorrow for "the days that are no more," and we feel, in a degree the Freshman knows not of, a sincere regret for the bright past when we stand up in the presence of faculty and students, and a well known voice proclaims before the peoples: " in cujus rei testimonium haec diplomata .... vobis trado." Only the Senior can detect the strands of melancholy in the threads of the college student's life, but time brings the undergraduate as well to the perception of his fate, which the poetic truths of " The Pessimist " suggest; for the Freshman nowhere to come, but in, for the Senior " No where to go, but out."

The dead past haunts the eastern air; It breathes in every time-worn street; And echoes still are sounding there Of ghostly feet. Then hail, the town that has no past, No bloody tale of wars and crimes, Rebellions, usurpations vast In ancient times! For in an air more clear and sweet, Girdled by green, untrodden lands, Where bluest waters kiss her feet, — Chicago stands. See Europe nodding, half asleep; And Asia stretch her lazy length; Chicago's youthful pulses leap With life and strength. With courage, too, disdaining fears, — Courage and strength to do and dare; With her it is the future years That haunt the air. With her prophetic eyes she sees The future's yet unopened book, Inscribed with all the centuries, — Nor fears to look. Then hail to her, the one divine, Who holds the future in her hands! For where the new dawn first shall shine Chicago stands. F. W. Dignan. Pierre IERRE was a peasant of Savoy, which in those days lay in the south of France, and men said of Pierre that the graces of God were not in him. Howbeit he loved a maid, and her name was Johanne. Pierre was of a good figure, but dark and surly; nor was his mind over quick. And on a day it fell that there was a conscription, being in the year when Pierre was twenty- two and Johanne seventeen. For the emperor, of whom all the world knew, had conquered kingdoms and would conquer more, yet could not for the lack of men. So the conscription was drawn, and a tenth of the young men and more must go with the emperor into lands afar. There were in the drawing black balls and white, and who drew the white went free, but not he to whom fell the black; and it chanced that Pierre, being very anxious since he loved, drew, and looking at the ball which he held, found it white. So Pierre went free of that conscription. Then Pierre was very glad, and bethought him that he had never told Johanne of his love; but this he would now do and so marry. For oi her love for him Pierre had never thought to wonder. So he went to Johanne and found her crying. Then Pierre told her he was free, wishing to comfort her; for that she wept because he had been drawn in the conscription he did not doubt, being a man. Yet she wept the more. Then Pierre was puzzled, for his mind was not swift of comprehension, and he asked her why she cried. And she, knowing Pierre well, but not Pierre's love, told him of a certain Jean, to whom a black ball had fallen; and this Jean she loved with her whole heart, and he her. Yet now he must follow after the emperor and be shot it might be, unless he could get free of the conscription. And this Jean could in no way do, since he was a poor man, without a franc to pay a substitute. For this Johanne wept, and for this would she die, if on the morrow Jean must march to aid the emperor. Thereat Pierre, as was his wont, said nothing, either of her sorrow nor of his own love. He went away, and it may be that his sorrow was even such as hers, yet he was a very quiet man and Johanne guessed naught of anything that was in his mind. So Pierre went out of the village where the forest stepped out to the edge of the town, and there on the moss he flung himself down. The little leaves rustled above his head, and over him ran the little wood ants, and m his heart through all that day and night the good God and the devil fought for Pierre, nor could Pierre have told you at any time which would conquer. For now it was his love, and now jealousy and black anger, and anon his love again, which swayed him; but in the end, when the morning was dawning, the devil overcame Pierre, so that his hate of Jean was greater than his love for Johanne. Yet in all this struggle Pierre thought not of himself, if he should take Jean's place, neither of the hardship nor of the danger, but only this: If he went in the stead of Jean, then Jean would marry Johanne; if he did not go, though Johanne loved him not, yet could she not marry Jean. So at the time of rising Pierre raised himself up from the moss and went heavily to the village. It was very early, so that the dew still lay on the grass, but all the little street was filled both with those who were drawn and those who had gone free; likewise with many women crying, and among these was Johanne, who sobbed on the breast of Jean, and Jean sobbed also, yet how much because he loved Johanne and how much because he loved himself I can not tell. But when Pierre saw Johanne crying his love took hold of him again, so that he shivered as with cold and his face went white. Then the good God came again to Pierre and the devil left him, and he went very quickly to the captain of the conscription and offered himself in the place of Jean. Now, Pierre was of a good figure and Jean was un- dersized, yet for the look in Pierre's eye the captain hesitated. However, when Pierre plead with him he took him and let Jean go free, wondering greatly and swearing-. But the people gave Pierre no credit for this thing because he was a surly man not given to friends, while Jean all men knew. Johanne, though neither she understood altogether, wondered much both then and afterward, and going to Pierre she kissed him once, weeping the while. Then she went back to Jean, and the conscripts drew away toward the emperor. But in the heart of Pierre there was great bitterness and hate, both of himself and Jean; so full it was of these things there was no room for fear nor for gentleness. Hard- handed was Pierre and rough, and few men in the company called him friend. His com rades fell around him on the march and in the field, and he paid no heed, but went forward. Whether any man lived or died he cared not, and least of all himself. So he became a corporal at twenty-three, and a sergeant at twenty-four. Now it chanced in a year that the armies of the emperor were lead to Moscow, which lies in Russia, far to the east; half a million men there were who went, half a hun dred thousand who returned; of them was Pierre. Of those men of the village in Savoy, who had been conscripted with him, not one remained; some there may have been else where in the regiments, but of them Pierre knew not nor cared. And in the spring the emperor made another great conscription to fill the places of the half-million who were gone. From north and from south came the young men of France who had so far escaped; now they were all drawn in by the great net of the conscription. There were few white balls this time, and substitutes were fewer still. And in Savoy Jean was drawn with the rest, and went away as Pierre had gone. But Johanne did not now mourn for that. She mourned indeed, as she had mourned a year, for the shame that covered her; but all her love for Jean was turned to hate like the hate of Pierre himself. So Jean went from Savoy, not sorry, though before him lay red war. So many conscripts to each old regiment, that was the emperor's rule; let the veter ans teach them fighting, the drill, and the devil. So Jean was drafted to a regiment of the line, and taught to shoot, to clean his musket, to march, and to love the emperor above all; and indeed this last to most had small need of teaching. And when Jean had learned these things he was transferred to another regiment, and from that again to another; and in this last Pierre was sergeant, and carried the colors. Now Pierre was changed and Jean was not, from that last day in Savoy, besides which Pierre had thought often of Jean, but he of Pierre never. So Pierre knew him first; but after a little time he made himself known, though this almost against his will. Jean was very glad, though Pierre was a rough man. And Jean told Pierre all that had happened in the village, and who was wed and who was dead; but of Johanne he did not speak, for she was neither dead nor wed, though a mother. And Pierre said little, but wondered, for he had thought the two married long since. One day he asked for her, and Jean shrugged his shoulders, smiling. And when Pierre would know his meaning, Jean, so little did he think of what was in Pierre's heart, told him that which had happened. Now it was well for both that Pierre had been under the discipline of the emperor for three years, else he would have killed Jean where he stood, and so been himself shot; but as it was he said nothing at that time. However, he talked no more with Jean. And three days afterward the emperor advanced on Germany. Right gaily had Jean marched and drilled when France was near and war a long way off, but with war's near approach his heart went down. Very fond of himself was Jean, nor did he like to think of dying with his sins upon his soul. Howbeit he said noth ing of this, but talked loudly of other things, until the day when it could be said, " On the morrow the battle." Nor was this day long in coming, for the emperor moved very quickly. And on that morrow Pierre asked something of the captain, at which the captain wondered, but for Pierre's sake granted. Now that something was this: that Jean on that day might help to carry the colors. And this was in Pierre's mind, that Jean must die, since of all posts the place of color-bearer was most dangerous, as most honorable. And if death came to him also, Pierre cared not, but rather looked for it. For he had thought much how he should kill Jean, and this at last seemed the best way, to drag him into the front of the battle and let him die there in terror, having first learned Pierre's hate. For Pierre knew that Jean was a coward. So the battle went on, and Pierre and Jean bore the colors of the regiment, and little Jean liked this, yet he could not for very shame refuse. But as they too went forward, Pierre told Jean all that was in his heart, of hate and darker hate. While the bullets sang he told him, hissing the story into the ear of Jean, told him of his love, told him of his sacri fice, told him of his resolve. And Pierre's face grew as dark as his hate, but Jean's grew white as death, for he was very much afraid. He feared to stand, and he feared to go for ward, yet finally he feared Pierre more than the enemy, and went on. And when the fight was warmest, and oftenest the bullets sang through the colors, one coming low struck Pierre in the knee, and he fell, and the colors with him. For Jean seeing him fall, on sud den his fear swept up over his brain and crazed him, so that he dropped the standards and fled. But one of the men seeing him fly fired once, and Jean fled no longer, but lay still. And he who had fired grasped the colors from the ground and led on, and the battle fol lowed over. But Pierre crawled to where Jean lay dead, and looked at him long and long. Now many months later there crept through the south of France a one-legged man, and that was Pierre. Sometimes he rode in carts, but most time he walked, dragging a crutch. And Pierre was six and twenty, yet his hair was whiter than the roads. And it so happened that in the end he came to Savoy and to his own village, nor did any one know him for Pierre until he told them, nor did they then care overmuch, for wounded con scripts were not few, and Pierre had no family. But in the news of the village they told him this and that Qne was dead, and among these dead ones was Johanne. And Pierre gave no sign of grief, but said rather, "It is well she is dead. Even at the wars I heard of her shame." Yet it may be that in this Pierre dissembled; for that night he died by his own hand. J. W. Linn. Thanksgiving Day F OLD ye Puritans devout, Did spend ye morning in ye house of prayer, Ye while ye preacher hammered out Ye gospel truths upon ye pulpit bare; They rendered thanks and sung grew David's psalms To Him who gave them peace from war's alarms. Today their daughters and their sons The morning spend upon the gridiron field, And cheer the half back's mighty runs, And shout ecstatic when the stout lines yield, And rend the air with loud triumphant cries When low in pain some doughty foeman lies. IT WAS moonlight in the tropics, and we sailed peace fully over the broad lagoon. Along the shore the feathery palms waved softly in the evening breeze, gently beating time to the low melodious voices of the natives, who sang as their glistening bodies swayed in rhythmic motion with the oar. The blue of the sky and the green of the water were as clear as in daylight, but as if seen through silver spectacles. The ships lay at anchor in the distance, as still as the water in which they were resting, while the ocean, jealous of the peace ful lagoon, tossed its foam over the strong reef, in a wild and frantic effort to gain admission to this scene of rest, and, maddened by failure, left a line of white froth along its gigantic mouth. Save the songs of the natives and this distant roar, softened into a mumble by the time it reached our ears, all was silent. Adelaide Ide. $ FIE was a tiny mite, with shining brown skin, which glistened with cocoanut oil. She had large, wondering brown eyes, and the long sweeping eyelashes which are peculiar to her race. Her hair had all been shaved off close to her head, with the exception of a curling fringe around the face, so that she looked as though she a bonnet of her own skin with her hair for a border. Her dress was of gaily decorated bark, trimmed with leaves, and she was almost hidden behind the great bouquet she carried. "Talofa," she said, and with a low bow handed the flowers to me. She then folded her little brown hands, and, without the least shade of embarrassment, sang sweet, simple songs in her clear, child-like voice. There was not a trace of shyness or boldness, of coyness or affectation. " Tofa, soif ua," she said, when she had finished. "Good night; God bless you." And she walked away like the princess that she was. J\\>0£ Adelaide Ide. Half a Loaf TT WAS his first reception. He entered the long room awkwardly, and tiptoed with creaking steps to its very center. Then he stood stock still and blushed. Reception committees were to him unknown quantities; what he sought was acquaintances, and acquaintances he could find none. Where was that pretty little girl who had invited him so cordially to the next Kelly reception? Was that really an invitation, or was she only Ah, there she was ! Talking, laughing, unconscious, apparently, of his very existence. He walked toward her and balanced himself on the edge of the circle sur rounding her. She saw him, nodded to him, and the next moment — turned her shoulder just a little, but enough. A friendly voice at his elbow made him turn joyfully toward the speaker, and in answer to her greeting he exclaimed: " I am glad to see you ! You aren't the girl I came over to see, but you'll do splendidly to talk to." An Askin' EHE point is jest this," said Josh Hendricks, "is she goin' to, or is she not goin' to?" They were sitting on the churchyard fence, three strapping fellows who were supposed, except by the girls, to linger after church to talk together concerning crops and politics — but the moonlight has certain inalienable rights, and the " shes " and " hers " scattered through the conversation referred neither to the nation nor to nature. Bill Phillips laughed a little nervously as Josh's wisdom trolled forth in the deep bass that was the pride of the whole congregation. "That's it, that's it, Josh," he agreed, as he thrust his feet between the boards, and then, having safely hooked himself to the fence, stretched his lanky body back until it was almost on the level with the plank upon which he sat. With difficulty he brought himself erect again to add, " But the point within the point is jest this — how's a feller goin' to know? " There was silence for a doleful moment, and then the third boy brought forward his masteripece of profound thinking. "Askin' is the way," he said, in tones which the proximity of the graveyard made very appropriate. All three sighed. With one accord they clambered from the fence. "And a precious hard way it is," grumbled Jim. "Wish we was all well through with it. Well, good night, boys." They started in different directions across the meadows toward their homes, and Bill Phillips had covered two wheat fields and a pasture before a new idea came to him. " Heavens to Betsey! " he said. " If I hadn't laid out to ask the boys what they thought of that last notion of Grover's ! " A sheepish smile crept over his long face as he resumed his slinging trot. " Them girls," he muttered," the way they can drive sense out of a feller's head is jest killin'." On the following Saturday night there was a mite party at the preacher's home, to raise money for the new church lamps. Joshua and Jim each appeared early with a girl, and they looked reproachfully at Bill when he slunk in alone later in the evening. Bill avoided them at first, but after a time he made an opportunity to whisper to Josh, who was the acknowledged leader of the neighborhood society, "Jest couldn't help it — couldn't get up my nerve." The apology did not conciliate Josh. " It was a bargain between us three, and a bargain's a bargain," he whispered back sternly. "But she's here; the Joneses drove 'round for her when they found she hadn't any comp'ny — think, though, what a position that was to put a pretty girl like Ellen in! " " I know it," gasped Bill, "and I'm goin' to take her out to supper, dead sure." Ellen Johns was a tiny brunette with a voice as sharp and snapping as her dark eyes She tossed her curled black head and straightened her slim figure when Bill mumbled an invitation to go into the dining-room. " Thanks," she said airily, " I et my supper before I came, and I don't care to do it again. I never was one with much of an appetite." Bill's face fell, and she cruelly misinterpreted his gloom. " Others ain't made way," she said significantly. "Don't let me keep you from goin' in, Mr. Phillips." " It wasn't the cake I was thinkin' of," said Bill, roused to an effort at defending himself. "I was — was sorry — 'bout something else." Ellen softened a little. She thought of saying that she might be able to eat a few grapes, and they could go to the garden for them, but the memory of the Joneses' kindness in coming by for her was still bitter. She moved toward the organ. " I promised Mr. Rawson to sing with him after supper, and I better be picking out the notes," she said, waving Bill away indifferently. Going to sing with Rawson! Bill realized at last that he must be up and doing, and with a voice almost as deep as Josh's, he said, " It's blazin' hot in here — won't you walk around the yard a bit, Miss Ellen? " Ellen decided to be merciful. " P'raps we might find a few grapes rather coolin'," she said, almost graciously, and away to the vines they went. Both Josh and Jim saw the exit and they beamed at each other. Later Jim managed to say in Josh's ear, " Reckon the old chap has got along as well as you and me — the moonlight and nobody else eatin' grapes orter pulled even him through." The next night, after church, Josh and Jim made for the fence eagerly. It was to be their last night of such friendly talks, for during the weeks fathers and mothers were to be seen, and after that Bess and Milly would have steady company home from church. Bill did not seem quite so eager for the exchange of confidences, but as the last horse trotted from the yard he joined his friends. " All right, Billy boy? " queried Jim, interestedly. • " It wasn't so bad after all when you once got down to it, was it? " Bill did not answer. He climbed upon the fence at a short distance from the other two, and suspicion crept into Josh's heart. " Bill Phillips," he said, sternly, " You don't mean to say " "Yes, I do mean to say," snarled Bill. Then his spirit died down and he broke out pitifully, " Boys, I jest couldn't get it out, I jest couldn't. Yes, I know we was the only ones by that plaguy old grapevine; I know the moon was shinin'; I know I had the example of you fellers right before me, but I jest couldn't get it out." Jim, tenderhearted boy, was touched by the dreary tones. " Well, Billy," he began but Josh interrupted him fiercely. "There ain't any well about it," he said, angrily. "I s'pose you are goin' to wait for Ellen to do the askin' herself ? " " If only she would," groaned Bill. Joshua jumped from the fence. " I'm goin* home," he said, in disgust. " You ain't the feller I took you for, Bill Phillips." Jim was gentler in his judgment, but still it was a gloomy boy who walked away toward the Phillips farm. " I deserve it," he said to himself. " I ain't what you'd call sperited." When he got home he stopped at the stable to see if a sick mare had been properly seen to, and the practical train of thought roused by his indignation at the younger brother who had forgotten to feed her shook him from his despondency. When he came from the stable he looked at the moonlight on the great oak trees in the front yard with appreciative eyes. "Dreadful pretty world this is," he said, aloud. "And mebbe things are goin' to come out right after all, for p'raps if I don't get it out she will! Josh wa'nt in earnest, but Ellen ain't the hang-back, no-count sorter girl Bess and Milly are. No, sir, she's a girl of sperit, and I ain't goin' to give up all hope yet." Katherine Bates.

This is the night October dies, When snow-trailed clouds do flit the skies; And wintry blasts from poles are sent To circle earth in merriment; The air is charged with rigor and cold To hearten men and make them bold, For October dies With gray-stained skies And miserly Winter regains his hold. II. This is the night the ghouls revive, When ghosts and bodiless shadows connive For mischief and sport, for terror and glee, To revel and frolic and prance merrily. Hobgoblins and witches are out on a lark When October dies, The gray-stained skies Are forging the shaft of Winter's dart. III. This is the night the old crones come With harpies and sprites from their musty home— A yell and cry, a whiz and a shriek, A clattering bone, or maniac's freak,— A noisy charge from the spirit band Will stir the owls from their sleepy stand, When October dies With gray-stained skies And crusty old Winter reconquers the land. IV. This is the night Old Nick returns, From dusty tombs and unknown bournes To haunt among men and pale them with fright, To summon up demons, entice them to fight, To bolden shy maidens to search for their mate And read in the symbols their destined fate, When October dies And gray-stained skies Makes brusky old Winter the Master in state. J. Leiser. So Much the Worse My love's a maid of modern days, Whose charms I gladly sing, And as my portion of her praise, I write this little thing. For me her beauty fills the air, 'Till I must say, forsooth, If 'tis not true she's richly fair, So much the worse for truth. They say that she will ne'er be true; That love won't last for aye; But that I shall not leave with you, It is for bye and bye. She loves me now, and now I rail At all such doubts with glee; And, if some day that love should fail, So much the worse for me. Am I to sit and worry now, When all is bright and gay, Because you don't believe the vow She made for me today? When others say our married bliss Will e'er be marred strife, I drown my fears in one long kiss — So much the worse for life. Walter Deffenbaugh. After the Storm Just setting is the sun, And all the scene is strangely bright With a solemn, shaded, yellow light; The thunder rolls like some big gun Reverberating far away With parting shots after the fray; The mountainojis clouds, as if in fright, Go trooping by, and one by one Fade into the afterglow; The lightning flashes fitfully, The rain hangs heavy on the tree, And upward streams the gay rainbow; The mellow light has fled, and Night Drops down and shrouds the scene from sight. In Chapel HE Janitor was standing musing under the clock in Cobb Hall, when some one remarked in his ear : "Janitor, I'd like your advice." The Janitor started, and looked down. There on his coat- collar sat a Brownie. It was the little dandy, with the dress suit and eye glasses. , "Your advice, Janitor," repeated the Brownie. Most people passed over the Janitor, and went to the Registrar, the Deans, and the Examiner for advice. Therefore this confidence touched him, and he beamed genially upon the Brownie. " I 've some time to spend here," explained the Brownie, " and I want to spend it where I can see the university life. But I want to be where I can sit down and watch things, because I 'm tired. Palmer Cox makes me tired all the time." "You've heard of our university life, then?" queried the Janitor. "Yes; we read the papers. It seems to be a beautiful thing." The Janitor smiled elaborately. Then he patted the Brownie's head with the tip of his finger. "Come, little one," he said, "Chapel's the place." He unlocked the chapel door, and hastening up the middle aisle placed the Brownie in a corner of John D. Rockefeller's picture. "You can see everything there," he said. "It '11 begin directly." "Is it divine service?" asked the Brownie, respectfully. The Janitor smiled again. " No; that comes later," he said. Just then the door burst open, and a crowd of boys bearing musical instruments rushed in. They formed in a semi-circle, tuned their instruments, and played two or three pieces. Then a dark, handsome youth made a hideous discord, rose from his seat, and remarked that he was through; another one put his feet on top of the organ, and began reading the morning paper. Two or three more strolled over to the window and talked. A slim lad made various excited appeals to them, in which could be made out the phrase: "Concert will be a failure; * * * disgrace the institution." But three or four boys wrapped him in an overcoat, and sat on him. "What is it?" whispered the Brownie. "The Mandolin Club," replied the Janitor, dusting the reading desk. " When do they practice? " asked the Brownie, watching them dash out of the room. " That's what they were doing." " Why I thought they were amusing themselves. They seemed to be having quite a social time," said the Brownie, bewildered. " Well, isn't a club a society ? Why shouldn't they ?" The Brownie looked as if he did not comprehend the Janitor's logic; but he only said wearily: "Palmer Cox would make them work." The Chapel door opened again, and a trimly-dressed maiden entered. She chose a comfortable corner, and bent her head over a book. Every time she heard a sound she glanced up. Presently an athletic looking youth strolled in and joined her. "Thought you were never coming," he said. " I've been looking over the, door for the last half hour to see if you weren't here." " The professor wanted to speak to me after class," she said, sweetly, "and of course I had to wait." " One hour of your society is all he is entitled to," he announced firmly. " But I don't blame the poor chap for wanting all he can get." She smiled unutterable things at him, and handed him a rose. " I'm interested in that case," remarked the Janitor. " I've watched it from the start." Before the Brownie could say anything another couple entered the room. They sought a remote corner, and dropped their heads over the same volume. " They are probably going over the hymns together," said the Brownie, anxiously. Once more the Janitor smiled. The door opened again, and several people came in. They formed themselves into couples or little knots all over the room, and made it resound with whispered talk and laughter. One or two really seemed to be studying, but the half-dazed Brownie suspected that they were only doing it to kill time, till others should arrive in whom they were inter ested. More people kept coming and the conversation kept growing more animated. At last a bell rang, and the students began to file out. " What is that bell for ?" inquired the Brownie. " It announces chapel time." "Then why should they leave ?" asked the puzzled Brownie. " Others are coming in," said the Janitor, adroitly begging the question. " Gaze on the divinity students." He took the Brownie from the corner of the picture and put him on his coat collar again. " I do not understand," said the Brownie, plaintively. " Is it a rule that they must hold morning receptions in chapel ? If so, why do they pretend to study ? Why doesn't the faculty come, too ? I thought a reception had to be official, and how can a reception be official if the faculty isn't there ? Why doesn't " "Never mind, little man," interrupted the Janitor, soothingly. "Don't try to under stand; come and matriculate here and learn things. You have to be educated up to university life, you see. You have now seen something of our university. It is a great university, but not as great as we would have it. We have as yet no medical school. We have as yet no law school. If you have a million to spare, think of us; we want money, we must have money. We " But the Brownie had fled. M. L. R, Overheard CHEY were sitting close together on the bank under the pines. Far away in front of them stretched the broad creek, jeweled here and there by the reflection of the lights on the opposite shore. At their feet the tide was coming in but slowly# Too slowly for the impatient little ripples which tumbled over each other trying to get near enough to hear the low-whispered words the two spoke. Her hair was loose, and under the pine shadows it looked as murky as the water. The wind brushed some of the long ends against his cheek, and he fingered them tenderly. The little waves were jealous. They murmured pettishly when he measured both her slim hands upon his broad palm. Then the two rose to go, and the tide had come in so far that the little ripples could hear what she said. " This is the first time " But waves know that much can be heard and forgotten in a night. M. L. R. WAS sitting on one of the benches in Jackson Park, idly looking out over the lake and watching the gyrations of a couple of hungry gulls. On another bench hard by sat a man whom I at once set down for a farmer. His hat was of straw, dingy and battered, and freckled with dirt; his coat had evidently been black once upon a time, but now it showed a dozen shades of green and yellow and brown; his mud- stained trousers had begun to fringe out on the lower edge, and they showed unmistakable signs of having been thrust into his great unblackened boots. He wore a shirt and collar of dubious whiteness, but no necktie. He was chewing meditatively upon a spear of grass, and gazing out across the water. I decided that he was seeing the sights of the city, and had come out to look over the remains of the World's Fair. While I was still observing him he turned toward me and spoke. "Say, mister," he said, " kin you tell me which way them boats is goin'? I've bin watchin' nigh onto half an hour now, an' I can't make out." And he pointed his lean brown forefinger at the two cribs lying several miles from shore. A Toast Come, fill up the glasses, fellows, Let's all be merry tonight And drink till our creditors' faces Have faded away from our sight. Drink till the gray of the world-life Takes on a roseate hue, And the circling rim of the wineglass Holds all that is dearest to you. The dark, sparkling eyes of maidens, The full, crimson lips are there, And the rich, dancing light on the liquor Is the glimmering sheen on her hair. The clink of the glasses, the laughter That rings from the lips we have kissed, And the red, flowing tribute to Bacchus Drowns grief for the joys we have missed. A bumper to love and to beauty; Another to hearts we have won, And a third to the young god Bacchus To honor the good he has done. Once more to the loveliest vision, A maiden bewitchingly sweet, With the shapeliest tapering ankles Revealed by the wind in the street. Then death to each crank and croaker, And life to each rollicking soul Who cares not a whit for the morrow, But drowns the whole world in the bowl. Dead is the past; and the future Never will cause us a tear. Yesterday's buried forever And tomorrow will never be here. G. S. S. The Shadow in the Valley. the way home from the postoffice was a long hill, and just on the other side of the summit, underneath a rustling Cottonwood tree, little Jack Donnelson always checked his pony. A valley lay beyond the hill, a valley where even on the sunshiniest of July days Jack was to meet a shadow. At the stile in front of the cottage down in the hollow, Mrs. Wilson was sure to be standing, on the watch for Jack and the mail bag— Mrs. Wilson, whose boy Tom had gone west and forgotten to write home. It never occurred to Jack to blame Tom— blame him? What for should a chap be settin' down to write letters when he might be shooting deer, jamming spears into the sides of buffalos, or walk ing over the mountains kicking over gold mines? But there was that eager face, that quick query about the Home Journal ox Mr. Wilson's Country Gentleman, that stern suspicion that Jack had forgotten to bring the spool of thread she had charged him to remember. He knew very well that even should the Journal and the Country Gentleman and the spool all be handed open to her, the shadow would still creep down her face, and then in some myste rious way reach over to him, and wind itself tightly around his heart. He always rode slowly up the hill that shut in the valley on the other side, but once he had crossed its crest he was free again, free till to-morrow when he would again pause by the cottonwood tree. Free to loll back on the pony, with his feet crossed in most circuslike fashion on her neck, free to whoop and shout, to press the pony near the pokeberry bushes in the fence corner so that he could crush the berries into blood, free to swing himself far enough down, as he crossed the brajich, to trail his toes in the rippling water— in fact, free to take in at every pore of his brown, wiry, little body the joy of the summer afternoon. Katherine Bates. ill HAT iS m°re disheartening than t0 come back to college one day late? You IJLi are met by one of your best friends, who, after fondly embracing you and faith- ^^P fully telling you how glorious it is to have you back again, comforts you by adding that you have got to pay five dollars for the privilege of registering, and that you had better run right over and do it. You have changed rooms this quarter, and you go to your new abode only to find your best party dresses, which you had left peacefully hanging in the closet, all heaped in a confused pile on the bed. You get- out the boxes in which you had hastily packed your valuables when you left in June. Your teacups are broken, and your lace draperies are covered with smut from the bottom of the kettle. Every room in the house is taken, and you discover that a table, a chair and a bed constitute the extent of the furniture that has been left for delinquents. You- are told that a new supply will be here in a week. But what can you do meanwhile ? Simply use your one chair for a washstand, put your books in an artistic pile in one corner of the room, your clothes in another, while you sit between them, on the floor, and proclaim your woes by means of a daily theme. ON a corner of the Boulevard, des Italiens, there sits, day after day, rain or shine, a woman, a beggar, who differs not a whit from the others who besiege you daily, except that she is a cripple. Two wooden pegs that serve as feet, rest on the step below her, two wooden crutches stand beside her. A pitiful sight and yet — beware what coins you in your sympathy toss her. Gold or silver, yes — but cop pers she will fling back in your face with a sneer. Twenty years ago, then Mile. Eugenie, no woman in all Paris was more feted and courted. The city went wild over her. Men and women, rich and poor, flocked to see her, smiled at her extravagance, laughed at her follies, this beautiful woman, famous alike as actress and singer. And when at last came days of suffering and wretchedness, bringing loss of beauty and loss of limb, then, deserted by her former friends, she procured a license as a beggar and near the scene of her former triumphs, she sits and waits for the living still owed her as she fancies by the world, — bitter, wrinkled, hideous, a woman old at thirty-five. K. She That Hath Not HERE were four of us in the low-ceiled, little junction station, waiting for an overdue train. Three of us, I felt, were chafing against the tyranny of things in general and the perversity of trains in particular, but the fourth, being a philosopher, chuckled contentedly at us and at the world from the safe vantage of his mother's arms. She was a commonplace woman, the mother, and the baby was a commonplace baby, though with a saving sense of humor; she who sat across from us was too serious for the common adjective; and I was a commonplace traveler, who envied the philosopher his point of view. I wished the one opposite would not keep so irritatingly still under the strain of waiting. She sat stark, black, sullen; even her shadow scarcely flickered on the dun wall behind. At the end of her scoop-like bonnet I could just see the whiteness of her face, so stern, even though softened by the dusk of her head gear, that it chilled me more than the sound of the wind outside or the dismal creaking of the station sign. Her rosary drooped from her girdle, and, dangling down, there gleamed from the black folds of her dress a small gold crucifix — the only bright thing about her. Over and over my three companions wandered my eyes, until my interest waned, and I had just determined to rout out the ticket agent, when his little window slammed up. Behind it loomed the usual discourteous face, that grew more surly still as the agent told us of a wreck — the old tale! up the road, and assured us that the Chicago express would be five, it might be six or seven, hourh late. The mother peevishly asked a few useless questions, the sister opposite moved a little, the only sign of her annoyance. I longed for a ten-minute talk with the manager of the road, while the philosopher was the only one who saw the subtle humor of the situation; he seemed inordinately amused. I was considering what it was best to do, when I saw the mother step over to where the other sat and heard her say: " Would you hold baby for me just a minute while I send a telegram? " I marveled, listening, and looked only for a cold refusal, for the shifty light that played about the impassive face in the upturned bonnet revealed no softening of those lines which asceticism and penance had long ago etched in. But the philoso pher, careless of creeds, reckoning not of the sacredness of a daughter of the church, was not so easily frightened as I; he thrust his soft fists at her right scientifically, and crowed defiantly into her funnel of a bonnet, kicking so valiantly the while that he threat ened to pitch headlong into her lap. To me it seemed as if she raised her hands to ward him off, yet this could not have been, for the mother smiled upon her and placed him in her arms. The sister held him awkwardly at first, and at a distance, frowning her disapproval of his levity; but he only gurgled the louder, and kicked so joyously and strenuously that she was obliged to hold him close lest he should fall. I could hear her stiff gown crackle as she pressed the god less youngster to her bosom; but the expression of her face was hidden, for she bent so closely over him that I could see the smooth top of her bonnet. Yet after a little, when she raised her head, the bonnet was pushed back, and the glimpse I caught of her face made the gold crucifix seem less bright. She was no longer a still black thing, but a woman, for the first time thrilling to a baby's voice and touch. On the gray wall behind her, her shadow fairly danced; and she, blushing at the boldness of his struggle against her, must yet smile back at him, filled with the contagion of his own irresistible humor. And he ? He did not know, perhaps, that he was upon consecrated ground; but if he had known, I fear the knowledge would have been an added pleasure. And in one glorious effort his irreverent foot caught in the loop of her rosary — a struggle — and rosary and crucifix went rattling to the floor. She heard them clatter down, and paled a little; and as she glanced at the little shining heap and then at him who had committed this sacrilege, her face was stern. But he, quite unabashed, mocked her with his glee and pounded her with his fists, while she regarded him doubtfully, wavering between religious habit and this new desire. The sight of the mother coming for her son decided her; she snatched the baby to her breast and pressed her face against him, so hard that her stiff bonnet was quite bent and spoiled. Murmuring thanks, the mother stood before her with outstretched arms; but until she said quietly, " We must go now," the sister did not stir. Then she looked up, tried to smile, gave the boy into his mother's arms, and then watched him as he waved and chuckled at her. They went away, and the door rattled shut behind them. I looked out at the window after them; and when I turned again, the sister sat rigid as before. But on the floor beside her the crucifix still gleamed and sparkled in the smoky light, unheeded; and as I placed it in her hand I caught upon her cheek the sparkle of a tear. Nott W. Flint. The Author fWAS not that the world was kind Or that I had the gift of song, The world but smiled at my verse Ere your spirit chanced along. You are the soul of the lines That have stirred the old world's heart; I could not choose but sing, My pen could not choose but start. And you say that I did it, Love? Oh, nay! 'Twas not I, but you. I sang, for your smile was fair, I sang, for your eyes were blue. I who was dead before Have awakened to love and rejoice; Have thrilled at the touch of your hand, Have wept at the sound of your voice. Take you the world's applause; It were meet that your name should be On the small dark volume there Which cannot belong to me. Yours is the voice of the song, Yours be the praises dear; I could not choose but sing, The world could not choose but hear. Nothin1 there but fryin' pans and dough and cookin' books ; Pots and kettles on the floor, skittles on the hooks ; If you have never been there you had better go and look 'Cross the quad in Kelly where the coeds learn to cook. It's there you see your apple pie and custard pie and cake, Or anything that Lincoln or Parloa tried to make ; And if you know the ladies, perhaps you'll get a bite, But don't take two, I warn you, if you want to sleep that night. For O, the frightful stories that belated travelers tell, Of the sights they've seen at midnight and the sounds they've heard as well, When the dark has stilled the campus and the moon has fallen low, And the night wind like a specter wanders wayward to and fro. How the lights shine green and ghostly from the grated windows there, And the clatter of the dishes seems to rend the frighted air ; And the flitting, noiseless figures glide about with fearful haste, As they eat with awful mockery of a food they cannot taste. For those pale dyspeptic specters once were coeds like you, see, On their way across the campus, talking, laughing merrily. But they cooked in Kelly Kitchen in the misty days of yore, And they ate whereof they baked— now they cook forevermore. A Typical Day in Nancy Beecher Hall N AN ill-guarded moment I said to my twin Achates: " Now, girls, to-morrow is going to be my busy day, and I wish to be let severely alone." The day was begun as all such days are begun by a sweet obliviousness of both rising and breakfast bells. I hurried down to the dining-room to gather up the remains of a cold, gloomy breakfast, the lot of the laggard. On returning to the scholastic quiet of my own apartment I found that it had been laboriously decorated by my friends with a series of fantastic mottoes in red and blue crayons, such as: "This is my busy day." "Silence! in this room." "Speech is silver, silence is golden." " No one shall speak to the man at the helm, and the man at the helm WP shall speak to no one." "How doth the little busy bee," etc. "The k^ great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect I YUI sweetness the independence of solitude." I removed these ennobling iM sentiments, and sat down to study. Knock at the door. " Come," ^^~"~ sweetly. "May I borrow your screw-driver? My steam pipes are air bound, and my room is as cold as a barn." Knock number two: "Come," not so sweetly. "Oh! I see you are busy. I am sorry to bother you, but I must decide on these proofs to-day. I 've had eighteen taken, each worse than the last. The photog rapher says they are all splendid, but I think they are just too homely for anything. They cost a lot. Do you suppose they '11 do for Christmas presents?" I look them over and make my choice, and my neighbor decides on the one I dislike most of all, and goes off contented. Knock number three: "Come," firmly. "Are you going over to Cobb? Would you mind putting this letter in the Faculty exchange for me, and buying me three tickets for the foot-ball game? Awfully high, aren't they? And oh! Say, will you buy me some stamps while you are about it, and see if there is anything for me on the bulletin board? The stamps and tickets, you know, are in the basement on the right hand side as you go down stairs." Knock number four: "Come," very firmly. "Can I have your chafing-dish to-night; and have you any alcohol? I forgot to buy some; and have you any stylographic ink? Thanks, I'll bring it right back." Knock number five: "Come," with asperity. "Do you like this bonnet? I don't think bonnets are a bit becoming. They make one look so old; but I'm going to the opera to-night, and i suppose I've got to wear it. Aren't you going? Have to study? Oh! that's too bad. It 's going to be awfully good. I 'm going to study next week." In despair I flee to one of the departmental libraries only to find that the books I want are all in use. So I wait impatiently for the time to come when I can flunk and have it over with. On returning to my room, after the worst has been realized, I find it occupied by my ever faithful friends. Their work is elective, and consequently they have elected to lie on my couch, bury themselves in my pillows, eat my chestnuts and apples, and talk unintel ligibly about psychology. I am greeted with, " Oh ! we had such interesting things in psychology this morning. It's such fun! Do you ever have hallucinations? I mean real ones? Of course you do, but you won't confess it;" and, "Oh! say, we've got the worst poems for to-morrow. Now, what do you think I ought to think that Wordsworth thought when he wrote this poem? It sounds dead easy to me, but we've got to think something hard you know, and you've had the course and know what he expects you to think; so tell me, there's a dear " And so the day wears wearily away, and it is only after dinner, when my lamp is lighted, my curtains are drawn, and there is a general air of comfort and quiet, that I settle down with a feeling that I am studying. Knock. A maid appears with a card. Some one I hardly know, and it is such a bore to dress, but I do it elaborately, even to the point of putting carefully in their proper places numerous stick pins, and descend to the parlor to find that my labor has been in vain, that my two too funny friends have been the perpe trators of a not very funny joke, and to realize as I am greeted by them with shouts of laughter, that I am again the victim of my twin Achates. z£f-"^F5 1 BHIfgi t ^HPIrviaTO^S HE Song of a Man There's joy in the rush of a hurrying crowd, There's gladness in noise and in fight; And pleasure in pushing and laughing aloud In crowds on the street in the night. A man who can strike with a swing and a swirl, In the tide of a swift saber charge, May sleep 'neath the gods, while the demons all whirl, And die upon Arthur's weird barge. A blow, struck out with the strength of an arm. Sent straight at the mark in the strife, May carry the soul on its way to do harm, When heart's blood behind it beats life. 'Though glory there be in noise and in fight, In turmoil and bustle and shove, There's no brighter beacon e'er burns its warm light, Than the eyes of those whom men love. Walter Deffenbaugh. J THEL came to class today Arrayed in crimson sweater, Attention could a fellow pay? Ethel came to class today Her sweater stole my heart away, I flunked — I'm Cupid's debtor. Ethel came to class today, Arrayed in crimson sweater. ELL, it was done ! Her word had been given, and her word now, as ever, was irrevocable. It had come at last, this thing she had hoped for, struggled for, prayed for, with an intensity that could be satisfied only with speedy victory. And, after all, was it worth the price she had paid for it? No one, not even hd knew how dear that price had seemed. Other girls, less earnest, more flippant, perhaps, might not have cared; but she, she, the one they called noble hearted. high minded, the woman as far above petty deceit and intrigue as heaven is above earth! She laughed, and her eyes grew bright with self-scorn. How she despised herself ! How she almost despised him for no, she couldn't do that; she loved him too much, too much. And with the thought her eyes grew soft again. Yes, it was worth it, after all. It was worth anything. K. mm^>mr\^ ^N \^/V;/// F/ Billy Reilly OOK out fur twinty divils now wid double pinted tails! Shure, ye'd better have the convicts loose from half a hundred jails, It's good advice I'm giving yez, well meanin' as I am, Fur me partner Billy Reilly, byes, has passed his last exam. It was jist last night I seen him wid that Dutch grin on his face, An' his coat tails flyin' oop the street at a good 2:40 pace, And a can of paint in one hand of the reddest kind aroun', And he says, says Billy Reilly, " I'm a goin' to paint the town." Oi tell yez what, it's mischief whin that lad gets on a tear, No wonder that the theologs are losin' all their hair, For Reilly says, " Good look to Greek, good-bye to Bohn and Cram; We're goin' in fur glory whin we've passed our last exam." And ye'll see him down at Ureck's wid his wine and foine cigar, An' a shpillin' half a bottle of Budweiser on the bar. Then he'll pound upon the table fur another round of beer, And drink a health to every lass that iver shed a tear. He'll throw a kiss to Angeline who sings upon the stage, Sweet Angeline of fairy form and quite uncertain age, An' the man that plays the fiddle swears he'll murther Reilly quite, Fur sweet Angeline gets rattled and can't sing the songs jist right. And Reilly sits there grinnin', wid a patent kind o' smile, An' takin' in the whole concern, an' talkin' all the while, Fur Reilly told me privately he didn't give a damn, He wuz in fur all the glory, fur he'd passed his last exam. Now Reilly's jist a quiet lad through all the blissed year, He schmokes his poipe jist twice a day, and sometimes takes a beer, But I'll not answer for him now, well meanin' as I am, Fur he's an awful divil whin he's passed his last exam. Beneath the Mistletoe K She stood beneath the mistletoe; Upon her cheeks a gentle glow, Her lips a dream of tropic dawn, Their perfume from the violets drawn. A sweeter kiss could ne'er be won From dewy rosebuds by the sun; And so her lips were pressed to mine — I drank the madness of their wine. The rapture of their rich touch blazed Throughout my veins, and I shrank dazed Away. It was a draught of love Fit only for the gods above. A Friend of Mine E IS entirely a stranger to me. At least we have never been introduced. Various circumstances of time and place make that an impossibility. Of my existence he does not know, and I know of his by an accident. Yet the interest of fairy tale and romance fades in my eyes, when compared with the few facts in his history and the way I came to know them. He was German and he studied Latin, was somewhat idle and mischievous and rather clever at drawing. I don't know what his name was or where he lived or how he died. It seems rather strange that I should know these few facts! And it is strange. A good many years ago this German boy read Caesar. He didn't learn his lessons very well and wrote many notes on the margins of the leaves in jagged German letters. Sometimes the recitations were dry, and he scribbled and scratched up the pages of his un offending book. But at some period of inspiration he drew on the fly-leaf a picture most magnificent. It is the very quintessence of schoolboyism, this vivid sketch of a knight of long ago. Nothing could exceed the skill with which the armor is outlined by a few strokes of the pen, the mustaches are immense, the scowl exceedingly frightful. Most attention, however, was given to the features. I fancy that some comrade was held up to scorn in this way, or perhaps the teacher himself received punishment for punishment given. At any rate, the picture has been a kind of miniature immortality to his victim, for the old book has outlived its owner and traveled to foreign lands. Several years ago, a friend of mine in Germany chanced into a little second-hand bookstore and found it, a queer old thing, with a worn, dull-gray cover, its mossy-lined pattern faded away, with tough, leathery leaves and curly letters. It was nearly a hundred years old. This modern American in the midst of such antiquity, bethought himself of two American children who were drum ming over Caesar, and he bought the book and sent it to them. When we opened it and found the pictures and the traces of young life that the faded ink marks showed, we felt that we had found a treasure. How many times I have turned the pages and wondered and won dered about the hand that had lain where my fingers lay! Perhaps my German boy was a great man afterward and learned his life lessons better than his Caesar. Perhaps he com manded armies, or was very, very learned, or remarkably wicked, or — perhaps he never grew up at all. Perhaps — but where in all the range of fancy do not the child-thoughts wander when they start on a quest like this? At any rate, that little German scapegrace, so many years dead, was a comrade of ours, oftentimes, in plays that he never played. " For in the hearts of the children there is neither east nor west," nor life nor death, nor time nor eternity. 1 In Evening Dress N evening dress I sit tonight Beneath the ball room's brilliant light, And watch the dancers as they go Across the ball room to and fro, Like fairies in a fancy flight. Alone I sit, in black and white, And drink in draughts of deep delight To think I might be waltzing so, In evening dress. But, ah, I'm in a woeful plight, A leap year " Stag " has not one right To choose a dance; and so, you know, Alone I sit and swear real low, And call myself a fool, bedight In evening dress ! Sorcg E gathered once the autumn leaves, And golden wreathes together strung, Regardless of the fleeting hours, For we were young; But now we gather leaves of life, And very few our garlands ho'd, — The golden autumn days have fled, And we are old. CHE child stood before us, a little make-believe man in conventional dress suit and rigid linen. His eyes were dark ringed and heavy, his sweet baby face drawn with preternatural solemnity and anxiety. He sang, with close lips and tense muscles, a song about his long lost love, whom he never — so the song went — hoped to see again. His lower tones were fresh and strong, but the song revelled in alt, where his tones, though sweet and true, were tenuous, and so strained that the little voice broke once or twice in reaching them. When he dropped the last note into his jerky bow and ran off the stage, the audience cheered with enthusiasm. " How sweet!" "How remarkable!" " The blessed child — we must hear him again." He came back, smiling feebly, and began again. The woman who had played his accompaniment — his mother perhaps — was gratified, and became, not smiling, but a trifle less scowling. My neighbor turned to the chairman of the committee, remonstrating, " He should have been in his trundle bed hours ago, dreaming of fairies and rocking-horses." But the chairman of the committee was triumphant. " It's a great success, and where would our money for the Armenians have been without him?" Estelle Cook. *T¥T last her things are unpacked!

For two hours she has been at work arranging them on her walls and still you cannot miss them from the couch, tables and floor.

My Phyllis You've graces more than one; Your eyes are full of fun, Their laughing blueness haunts me even now; You are the little minx, Who always says she thinks I never mean one word of all I vow. You're pretty anywhere, With all your nut-brown hair, And anyway I simply must adore; But you are at your best, When last you come to rest, And sit in solid comfort on the floor. Walter Deffenbaugh. HE WORKINGS OF FATE— Being a monologue by a man with occasional assistance from others. Scene— A gentleman's dressing room. Among other things a mantel full of photographs and one placed prominently upon his dressing table. It is the portrait of a girl, and before it lies a bunch of faded violets. The time is morning— noon, perhaps. He seems to feel badly and consumes several glasses of ice water. Notices picture as he is making his toilet, starts and seems to recall something. Gad ! knew that something was wrong. Never would have done it if I hadn't been trying to forget something. It was she. She blasted my young life and shattered my day dreams, and she — she laughed at me — actually tittered when I assumed a dignified air previous to my departure. (Picks up violets.) Looked swell when I wore those; that must have been the reason she said she loved me. I see it all now; it was my clothes she loved and not me. Yet I didn't look like a jay last night. I wonder— well, logic's too deep for me. She has lacer ated my heart and I will cast her out of my thoughts. (Opens window and throws out violets.) No more shall the shriveled shadows of these faded flowers do homage to her beauty — beauty — (looks closely at picture) beauty. Gad! she is pretty. I — out of my thoughts. She mocked me; she laughed at me, and I will crush the last remembrance of her out of my bleeding heart. Wonder if my heart is bleeding? If it is, cigarettes is the cause. (Throws photograph in waste paper basket.) So perish the reminder of your cruelty, fair beauty. Never more shall I see your pictured self again. The fiery flames will soon have licked up your classic features. (Enter maid.) Oh! I beg pardon, sir. I thought you had gone out. (He glares at her.) No, Marie, it seems I am still here. Send up some more ice water, will you? (Maid.) Yes, sir. (Starts out — sees waste basket and stops for it — discovers picture and places it carefully on writing desk. Exit.) By the way I must write to Lambert and tell him I will go to Boston after all. I've quit living the life of a saint. I shall go to the dogs. I shall ruin my life in wild dissipa tion. (Walks toward writing desk — sits down and notices picture.) Now, how did that thing get there? If that girl's working in this house to-night, I'll leave. She might have known I didn't want it. She might have seen by the tragic look in my eyes that I have just passed through a great crisis. I'll settle it, though. I'll trust to no more of these heart-breakingly, zealous servants. The winds — " wynds " I mean, of the heavens shall have you for their toy. Go! follow the violets. May your face bring not trouble to another undeserving head. (Throws it far out of the window.) Now, that's set tled at last. (Gets into his coat and shoes, whistling a tune. A knock at the door.) Come in. (Enter ragged street boy, carrying picture.) Please, sir, here's a fotygraph I seen blow outen yer window. I ketched it fore it ever touched the ground. (Swears softly.) You are a bright boy; here is a dollar for your sick mother. (Exit boy in delight.) O ye loaves and fishes! If ever a man did have fate working straight against him, I'm the man. Here I am trying to bury a dead love, and by the sky-blue rainbow I can't find an honest undertaker. Ha, an idea! I'll send it to Hicksey. He's in Berlin and will lose it before he has a chance to write me about it, and then he won't dare to. He always loses everything. He took four trunks with him last time, bought enough to fill three more, and couldn't find two trunkfuls to bring back. Oh, Hicksey will certainly finish it. (Puts picture in an envelope, rings for a boy, and sends it down stairs to be mailed.) (Returns to dressing table to adjust his tie.) Gad! but it looks bare over here. Too used to seeing that picture. Perhaps Believe I'll put another one there. (Crosses over to collection on mantel.) It ought to be a girl. Looks silly to have a fellow's picture so conspicuous. Let's see. There's Alice, nice little girl, but a perfect fool. Flossy — no. Irene — um — too much brains, knows more than I do. Kitty — Kitty — nice face, nice girl. (Puts picture on table and surveys it carefully.) No, she won't do. It's got to be somebody equal to the other one, and I'm afraid I haven't got it. I'll have to fall back on a man. Where's Hicksey's picture? (Sorts over a pile.) Here it is. I'll — no I won't. Hicksey's face is dirty. (A pause.) I wonder if I was hasty. Hicksey will probably chaff me. (Knock at the door.) What's that. Laundry. Come in. (Enter boy with postman.) (Postman) You mailed this letter, didn't you, sir? (Extends muddy envelope.) Well, of all the confounded, back-dealing (Postman) Well, sir, I couldn't help it. A man ran into me just outside and knocked it in the mud. The ink wasn't dry and you'll have to put it in a new envelope, sir. All right, all right. I don't blame you. It's fate. Go away. (Exit boy and postman in amazement.) (Tears open envelope.) There you are again. You beat collectors. (Places it back on dressing-table.) I'm blowed if it doesn't look more home-like about here. Now, if I only had those violets, that original bunch, that I wore the night I made the impression. (Goes to window and looks out — starts, then opens window and swears wonderingly.) On the ledge. (Picks up violets and places them before the picture.) United once more after many trials and much suffering. (Thinks for several minutes.) I believe I'm a fool. In fact, I'm pretty sure of it. (Looks at picture, rather tenderly.) I am a fool, an idiot. I was probably the funniest thing she had ever seen, last night. (Knock at the door.) Come in. This can't be the picture again. (Enter boy.) Note for you, sir. (Exit.) (Takes note leisurely, glances at handwriting, then opens it hurriedly.) From her. (Reading.) So sorry, I was very rude last evening. Won't you please call this afternoon? With love, Mabel. (Puts on hat and overcoat, examines his toilet critically, looks at picture and walks toward the door.) (CURTAIN.) Walter Deffenbaugh. e Bachelor Maid Oh, the bachelor maid, I'm sorely afraid, Is to blame for all that's amiss; Her precepts of life are peculiarly rife With ideas of bachelor bliss. And all she can say on the judgment day, When the faults of all are arrayed, By refusing to wed, living single instead, She has many a bachelor made The Freshman's Dream (After an afternoon reception.) Shipwrecked upon a boiling sea, A boundless, trackless waste of tea: Chased by sugary bergs of ice; Clutching at every lemon slice; Drifting toward dark chocolate coasts, Where await dim hosts and hosts Of hostesses who nod and smile, And lure me to their siren isle. I drown in dreams of lovely curls And afternoons with campus girls. While the Carriage Waits Oh, I'm mad enough to swear, Grit my teeth and tear my hair, Bark my shins on every chair, Ransack things in wild despair, Just because I can't tell where I left that bloody blooming pair Of gloves. Ah, by Jove, right there. The Tennis ulove" In the courts one winter's day I settled in the good old way ; A breach of promise took my all In the courts 'neath judges gray. Charles Sumner Pike. On the courts one day in May We spent a long half holiday, And " love " rebounded with the ball On the courts 'neath Cupid's sway. N the Banks of the Siren Isles On the banks of the Siren Isles, In the midst of the Sea of Smiles, I dream of perpetual summer time, Of serenades and the lover's rhyme, On the banks of the Siren Isles. Across the Quad on the Siren Isles, Away from classes and other trials The cup of forgetfulness let me sip. In the stream 'neath the lotus let me dip From the banks of the Siren Isles. My memories of the Siren Isles Will be my sweetest afterwhiles; May they never cease to lure As long as their fair strands endure, On the banks of the Siren Isles. A March Day Cloud-gloomed, the colorless, disheartened day Hath wept itself to death; the fitful wind, Upstarting wildly, like some startled hind, Sweeps through the park's drear reaches and away Across the dripping woods. It shakes the spray From branch and stock, which wintry winds unkind Have stripped of leaf and bloom, sad ghosts resigned, In frozen trance, to buffetings and slow decay. The doctor's house looms dimly through the gloom, Like some grim specter; from its eaves, sad tears Seem shed for him whose heavy weight of years Makes grim death's coming seem a welcome doom. The gray light from the veiled sun, lingering still, Shows faint above the gravel pit's blurred rim; The landscape grows more featureless and dim, And misty darkness surges 'round the hill. But sweet to me are winds and driving rain, Which chasten with their strife my sad heart's pain. G. S. Steward. On the Road to the Market Town O beautiful maiden, with eyes so brown, Why do you hurry away, away? I, too, am bound for the market town, And would walk by your side this lovely day, And gossip the happy miles away, On the road to the market town. O handsome stranger, with eyes so blue, I fear you can't gossip with me, with me; For my mother has bid me have nothing to do With strangers so gay I might happen to see, No matter how pleasing their words might be, So I really can't gossip and walk with you. But think, pretty maiden, with looks demure, The road is so dusty and long and long; And when you come to the ford, I'm sure You'll be glad of my arms, so true and strong. And the country lads that the highway throng May seek for a kiss from my maid demure. O tempting stranger, I need no arm To help me over the ford, the ford; And 'tis only you strangers would ever harm A lonely maid by deed or word. Of your flattering ways have I often heard, And there's never a stranger my heart can charm. O maiden coy with the lips so red, You really are jesting, I know, I know; For your heart's not as hard as the words you've said, But you cannot coquette with the stranger so; A kiss I must have ere I let you go, My maiden demure, from those lips so red. O saucy stranger, with brow a-frown, You'll never from me a kiss, a kiss; There's a man come out of the market town, And he is my true-hearted lover, I wis; And every kiss that I have is his; For to wed him I'm bound for the market town. The Unknown UT yesterday I spoke to him Of earthly things, of law and state But yesterday he smiled at death, Scoffed at the iron law of fate. But yesterday his heart was light Without a doubt, without a dread And now to-day, I know not how He lies there cold and white and dead. We call him dead, his soul is gone — Gone like the vapors of the air. O North wind! with your mysteries I would that you might tell me where? TfAR May AREWELL ye tears, ye are not mine! The skies are smiling, laughs the sea And all around I see the sign Of happiness and harmony, Sweet April child of tears has gone Comes May, fair daughter of the dawn. When April wept I needs must weep My Lady April seemed so sad The quiet tears I could not keep, But now my heart is gay and glad For May is laughing everywhere And I would sing and laugh with her. Dear April has a tearful smile But happy May laughs out in glee And so my tears must cease awhile So must my voice be careless free So must I wander forth today To meet and greet my lady May. A Resume of Horace's Odes All praise to the fellow that doesn't imbibe, And his virtue for wine never barters. His glorified name 'tis but right to inscribe With the names of apostles and martyrs. But give me the lad who will frolic and play With the heart of a true Bacchanalian, Who passes his nights in the jolly old way, And comes home with the gait of a Salian. I honor the girl from whose maidenly lips No kiss can be stolen by any; Like the mountain's exalted and snowy-capped tips Be her glory through ages full many; But here's to the darling who sits on my knee And responds to my kisses with laughter. May her life be a happy and jubilant spree Both now and forever hereafter. Fern Bellerive. Translation from Horace (Ode 30, Lib. III.) I've finished now a monument, Shall long outlive memorial brass. O'ertowering high the grandeur lent The pyramids' majestic mass. Corroding storm nor raging blast Shall mar its majesty sublime; Through countless ages it shall last, And nothing wreck the flight of time. I shall not altogether die- Not all shall Libitina claim; Though in the grave my body lie, Yet in the future's praise my name Shall know no death, but, fresher still, Shall ever flourish, never fade, As long as climb the sacred hill The pontiff and the Vestal maid. Still will they tell how humbly sprung Where Daunus once of old held sway, I, first of all the bards that sung, Wed Western strain to Grecian lay. Take then thy glory, Muse of mine, The worthy guerdon of thy lays, And, of thy grace, for me entwine A poet's wreath of Delphic bays. Fern Bellerive. April One misty morn I watched a maid Trip down the hills of spring; The skies seemed blue to smile on her, The birds were there to sing. She wore a frock of tender green, Fresh from dame Nature's bower; In one small hand a sprinkling can, The other held a flower. (You must have seen fair April so, The sky-blue eyes beguiling, The sunny hair — the mouth that seems To tremble into smiling.) I went to meet her as she came Down toward the rising day, She smiled and showered me with rain, And smiling ran away. One Way TIME for saying good bye had come to these two, who, as every one said, had flirted abominably all summer long. They were sitting out a dance on the stairs, just where the light was brightest and the crowd most dense. She sat on the landing step, and he on the one below, and she was thanking him for being so kind to her all summer, and saying she hoped to see more of him when they were back in town. Then he begged her not to mention his kindness, inasmuch as it had been such a pleasure to do things for her, and he added that he should be most happy to call. Then she said: "Do you know you are the first real man friend I've ever had? Friends, you know, are different from 'smits' — and the queer part is, that you are just a friend, because to tell the truth you are just the kind of man I should have picked out if I had been in earnest. But, of course, I wasn't, and on the whole it's much more satis factory as it is. Friends wear better." She said this in a very impersonal, matter-of-fact way, and he said, " Of course," to her, and "Good evening, Mrs. Whitney, don't forget the third extra," and got up to let some people pass. Then as he resumed his seat and sat very still for a few minutes, she asked him what he was thinking of. He said: " I was thinking I wish we weren't just friends — or at least I should wish it if I thought you would — would care to have it different. But of course I know you wouldn't, so," he smiled in one corner of his mouth and leaned back comfortably against the wall, " I won't do any wishing." She smoothed out the folds of her gown for a few moments and then, " Wouldn't you?" she said, " I would. It might pay. It does sometimes, you know." The Girl on the Tally-Ho A bow of maroon from her shoulder hung, A banner maroon in her fingers swung, The songs of Chicago she blithely sung, The girl on the tally-ho. Though she sat in the ranks of the yellow and blue And her hair and her eyes were of Michigan's hue, Yet her heart to maroon and Chicago was true, The girl on the tally-ho. As onto the field through the cheering we came She waved us a welcome, but called me by name And gave me her token to wear in the game, The girl on the tally-ho. I heard her applaud as I made my great run; She seemed to know only the deeds I had done; Yes, we lost; but I've somehow a notion I won The girl on the tally-ho. Genevieve's Circus "LONG table took up most of the room in the little kitchen. Papa Bagville, when he tilted his chair back on its hind legs, was in great danger of falling through the open door, and Mama Bagville's broad expanse of shoulders was kept in a state of tropical heat by the proximity of the cooking stove. The little Bagvilles and Joneses and Johnsons who were tucked in between took up every bit of the remaining space. This evening they all were giving their entire atten tion to their supper — all but Genevieve Johnson, who was studying a red and yellow circus bill with might and main. Genevieve never did what the rest did. She was no relation to any one, a nd was different from everybody in all respects. Perhaps you would call Pa Bagville her relative, according to the polite fiction of the neighbors. It would not be respectable at all for a young lady of nine to have none of her own flesh and blood to look after her. As a matter of fact, Pa Bagville had married Genevieve's mother, and after her death had taken charge of the vigorous young orphan, with the same good-natured disre gard of consequences which afterward marked his action with regard to the Widow Jones. For this latter individual he married, though she weighed two hundred and ten and owned four little Joneses. They all settled down together in a tumble-down house on the outskirts of Woodside and had ever since been a most united family. Now, Pa Bagville and Ma Bagville and the four young Joneses and the two young Bagvilles were quite as peaceful as usual. Suddenly the steady click of knife and fork was broken by the voice of Genevieve, " I'm going to the circus. Ma, you'd better mend my white dress, and — I guess Mary Jones would lend me her blue sash. Pa, how much is the fare to Benton? I am going on the cars." There was perfect silence. Genevieve shoved the play-bill into her pocket and began to eat her dinner. Ma and pa exchanged amused glances and the oldest Jones boy giggled. But the scorn of the two families united had no effect on Genevieve. A kindly Providence had bestowed upon her, that her unsheltered pathway might be less hard, an abundance of cool determination, along with a most delightful manner of gaining her ends, which long ago had won her the respectful allegiance of Ma Bagville, the baby and all the lesser lights. "I'll fix up the dress and Mary '11 lend ye the sash, but where'll you get the money? I can't give you more'n ten cents and I know Pa ain't got that." Ready money was scarcer than good nature at the Bagville residence. Even Genevieve was a trifle daunted. Ten cents from two dollars left one dollar ninety cents, and she had a nickel. Where could that dollar and eighty-five cents come from? Quietly and thoughtfully she finished her dinner and then walked out on the porch. A long meditation left Genevieve with many strings to her bow. Surely they could not all fail! Then she went back, carelessly happy as ever, to be the leader in the games of the Joneses. Two days later it was that Genevieve raced down the road that led from Woodside to the Bagville orchard. The bitterness of defeat was upon her and the circus seemed very far away. Pretty Mrs. Brown, the Methodist minister's wife, had hired Milly Morgan to take care of her baby and paid her a quarter for just one day. Perhaps Mrs. Brown would hire her. So Genevieve went to the parsonage. The prim little lady looked at her with disdain, and never thought of the moist brown eyes or the quivering little chin in her horror at the dirty little hands. Trust her be-autiful baby to that horrible Bagville girl! Mrs. Brown didn't understand the family distinctions. She wouldn't think of such a thing for a moment. " Run away home, child, and wash your hands. Don't you see how dirty they are?" So Genevieve proceeded to the town pump in humiliation and disappointment. But she did not give up for that. She washed her hands and her face, too, and then started out once more. Many a respectable householder was surprised by odd requests from an odd little blue-clad person with a sweet voice and imploring eyes. Mr. Simons, the grocer, patted her on the head and gave her a stick of candy when she offered to chop his kindling. (Had not she often done it at home?) But most of them lifted their eyebrows and said it was to be expected of that awful Bagville family. So poor little Genevieve, that afternoon, flung herself on the ground in the orchard, and thought of the circus, and cried. There it was that the lodger found her. (Have I told about the lodger?) He had a little room upstairs and got his own meals and lived on a pension, that he had because of a bullet in his leg, received during the war. On the roll of the G. A. R. he was known as William Reginald Williams. To the world he was the Bagville lodger. This afternoon when he came back from the village, he took a short cut through the orchard. Therefore, though he walked very slowly, he nearly stumbled over a little blue calico bundle, which lay in his pathway. The lodger stood still and watched for a moment the curious heavings and squirmings. The bundle was evidently weeping. Genevieve and the lodger were on very good terms -Gen rather patronizing in a nine-year-old way, and the lodger humbly appreciative in a manner characteristic of age and loneliness and poverty. Now he sat down beside her and awkwardly proceeded to apply a little comfort. "Genevieve," he said, "what be the matter with ye. Air ye sick?" Genevieve sat up suddenly, revealing surprisingly red nose and eyes, and without a moment's warning flung her arms around the neck of the old soldier. " I want (sobs) to go (sobs) to the circus, (prolonged sobs) and it costs two dollars" — here she broke down entirely— "and I've only got fifteen cents." The lodger was much moved. He blew his nose, several times and the weak blueness of his blue eyes became more watery than usual. Then with Gen's head on his shoulder, and her bright, brown eyes, full of eager hopefulness, turned up to his, he made a statement of his financial condition. "Genevieve, I'm awful sorry, I'd like to take you to the circus, but you see my pension — that's the money I get from the government for being shot — '11 come the day after the circus, and now I've only got fifty cents." " I've got fifteen. How much does that make?" But hope was almost gone and the answer " sixty-five " was interrupted by a storm of sobs so violent that Gen wriggled out of the lodger's arms and fell in a heap on the ground, her tangled curls mingling their darkness with trj,e bright hue of the grass. Minutes passed like hours for the sad old watcher. The muffled sobs came to his ear with torturing regularity. Was there nothing that he could do? Two dollars: Couldn't he beg, borrow or steal it? Could he sell some of his old traps? A bright thought struck him and he whispered in Genevieve's ear. * * * * * * * * * Tomorrow was circus day. There was a mystery in the Bagville-Jones-Johnson family. Gen had ordered the white dress ironed, had borrowed the blue sash from Mary, and Sally's best pink ribbons. She had obtained ten cents from Ma Bagville, and a collection of debts among the children had resulted in five cents more. Genevieve said not a word of the circus and certainly had not two dollars, yet she was gay and light-hearted as ever. Luckily for Gen this compound household was not inquisitive, and so on the long- looked-for morning she was allowed to put on her clean white dress and the blue sash, to tie the pink ribbon onto her unwontedly smooth hair and start off on the road toward Wood- side, without other hindrance than an inquiry from Ma Bagville as to the time of her return, " I shan't be back 'till afternoon, I shan't need any dinner," she answered with a dignified air, and with a " Law, but she do beat all," Ma Bagville went back to her scrubbing. Genevieve walked into town and bought five cents worth of buns, and five cents worth of candy and five cents worth of peanuts. Then she came back again half of the way, climbed a fence, walked through fields, and finally reached a little deserted farm house in a grove. In the midst of the orchard of dead fruit trees was a smooth green place. Here Gen sat down piling her bundles up by her side and fluffing out her stiff skirts daintily. Presently the lodger emerged from the house and proceeded briskly toward her. The little girl saw a transformed and glorified lodger, and she fairly screamed with delight. For he wore a blue uniform, with sergeant's chevrons, and his whole person was resplendent with brass buttons and red sashes and Grand Army badges. He saluted as he passed by Genevieve, whose eyes grew positively saucer-like in the intensity of her admiration. For in his own thoughts at least, he had thrown off the weight of thirty years with his shabby old black suit, and this moth-eaten uniform meant to him Chickamauga and Shiloh, and young ambition and memories of olden times. So he held his head up proudly and dragged his lame leg along quite rapidly. When he reached the central point of the little green, he stopped and saluted again. Gen had flung herself on the grass forgetful of white dress and blue sash and was watching every movement, her eyes blazing with excitement. Then, standing up very straight, he presented arms, ordered arms, shouldered arms, charged bayonets, loaded and fired at imaginary foes till every corner of Gen's adventurous little heart was stuffed with excitement. The bright colors and strange motions, the odd exhilaration of her companion, the secrecy of it all made her surpassingly joyous. Finally when the lodger had fought over all his old battles and was thoroughly tired out, they sat down on the grass and dined together in state. They shelled the pea nuts and divided the kernels. They cut the candy in two, that each might have some of each kind. As they ate the sugar-coated buns the lodger told army stories. By the time they got to the candy, Genevieve rose to the occasion and spoke " Casablanca " to the great delight of her comrade. A rabbit came out of the grass and watched them in surprise. They tried to feed him a piece of bun, but he scampered away, and they laughed together, the old child and the young. A robin who had been watching proceedings from an old apple tree paid for his entertainment by chirping his loudest and best. It was all as gay as gay could be, a day that the lodger remembered on his death bed, and which Gen thought of when the lodger had been many years dead. " Much better than the circus," said Genevieve to the lodger. Alice Winston. October LOWLY the leaves waft downward, Drowsily falls the rain, (My heart is wild with passion, My soul is sick with pain;) And I sit by the dormer window And list to the falling rain. If only the wind were raging! Would only the thunder cry! If only the waves were dashing! If only the trees would sigh! Would only the leaves rush madly, With the winds and clouds and sky! But the leaves fall soft as zephyrs, As soft as the drowsy rain, (While my heart is frenzied with passion And my soul is wild with pain.) But the calm cannot soothe the passion Nor the dead leaves heal the pain. 1 To My Maiden in the East PLEDGE this toast — myself the host, " To my Maiden in the East." And though alone, I do not moan The fewness at the feast. Let quiet reign — for I would fain Have you alone with me; No friend shall pass the clinking glass For other healths than " she." When out I dine and toast is mine Some other one I toast. To place you, dear, midst song and cheer Were wrong — I love you most- No dinner out— no drinking bout Can cause you blush for shame. No stranger there, no lady fair Can lightly jest thy name. And so to-day — though far away From you I hold most dear, In cozy nest with label best My heart is filled with cheer. With many sighs — your laughing eyes And blushing lips I feast, And pledge this toast — myself the host, " To my Maiden in the East ! " Retrospect HE sat there as we are sitting now, Not a move was made, not a word was said ; Just a weary smile, like a shadow of pain, But I knew by her face that she was dead. I knew by her face that all was past, That life had no more to say to her, That her hopes and her fears, the best and the worst, Remained but a dream of the days that were. Such a dream as comes to the dead, we're told, On summer nights when the winds sing low Of a beautiful, sorrowful, faraway face In a springtime a thousand years ago. — - * Book XT % % % ! * ^8 t£*^*t£*^*^*t£*»£*^*«£*t£**£*«£*<£*^*c£*t£*^* <£•<£* y EVERYTHING EOR THE PRINTER A JOHN HARDER, Manager Long Distance Telephone MEPJCAN •¦*«»«¦•¦¦¦•¦¦¦¦¦- lYPE TOUNDERS (OMPANY r~~\ 1 39 and 1 4 1 Monroe Street ^4C CHICAGO> ILLINOIS Latest V/rtf7, Styles Tvpe< WHY BUY THE SECOND-BEST, WHEN THE BEST COSTS NO MORE?

G. SPALDING & BRO. CHICAGO «« NEW YORK PHILADELPHIA n ttlord to Students IMPORTANCE OF OUTDOOR EXERCISE " Convince the understanding, move the feelings, influence the will." This primary rule of the art of persuasion was first enunciated by the great Stagirite, the father of logic and the first to reduce rhetoric to anything like a science, and has been followed by Blair, Campbell, Whately, and the modern school of rhetoricians. Something like the same logical sequence is absolutely necessary for the full development ot the ideal man and woman, the genuine student, particularly. Physical strength, mental growth, intellectual greatness, to which may be added moral excellence— these are the successive steps by which the powers of man are brought to perfection and made true complements of each other. The failing health and strength of many students is usually chargeable, not, as is otten erroneously stated, to overstudy, but rather to lack of proper exercise, particularly in the open air, without which strong mental effort cannot be maintained with safety. Mind is not a manifestation ot matter, but the two are so intimately associated in the human body that weakness in the one seriously affects the other. This has always been recognized by educators, particularly in these latter days of gymnasiums, base ball, and general athletic sports. The enthusiasm of youth is apt to lead to excesses, and in students it manifests itself more frequently in physical than in mental exercise. While the sports indicated are invaluable to the mental worker, a gentler, pleasanter, and much more beneficial one is provided by that wonderful piece of mechanism, the modern bicycle. Co-education of the sexes has become the almost universal rule in our colleges and universities, and bicycle riding tends to develop the social natures of both young men and women, who are thus, in a most proper manner, thrown into each other's company. The oldest and most extensive American manufacturers of general athletic goods may not have had students especially in mmd when they devised and perfected the "Lady Spalding" as a companion, equal in merit to their world-wide, celebrated "Spalding Bicycle;" if not, it was a happy chance, and conferred a boon none the less valuable upon the successors of those who a century ago at Eaton " urged the flying ball." If some old prude, unfit for either bicycle riding or matrimony, urges that the former habit often leads to the latter condition, the reply is that boys and girls do not always remain young, and a congenial mate is an excellent ADDENDUM to a collegiate course.

Start them right and hold them until a right habit is formed, and the chances are that they will remain right to the end. Let them start wrong, and presently the second nature — habit — will have such a grip upon them that ten to one they will not only feel, but show, its mastery. SLIPSHOD HABITS ARE EASILY FORMED. The dental student, who, in selecting his college outfit, purchases this and that instrument because it "will do," sows the seed for a crop of loose habits which will be the bane of his professional life. Operations that "will do" send patients to the dentist who is not satisfied to dismiss work which falls short of his ideal. THE STUDENT WHO HAS REGARD FOR HIS FUTURE cannot afford to begin wrong. He cannot afford to use appliances or instruments of inferior quality because he is "only learning." Fine instruments train his sense of touch, and his manipulative ability is higher because of his use of them. For him, emphaticaUy, "THE BEST IS THE CHEAPEST." Uho S. S. White Cental 9tffy. Co.

D. Secretary Always in the Lead. . . " ' Wonderful ' is the expression most indulged in by visitors to Steinway Hall upon hearing the tones of the new Steinway upright grand piano, and wonderfully like the tones of a grand piano it really is. Well-known pianists could not be made to believe that the instrument they heard played upon was an upright piano, and marveled the more when they tested it themselves. It is a great achievement in the progress toward the ideal-toned upright piano, producing the beautiful qualities of tone heretofore only obtainable from a grand, and is the nearest approach yet attained to the resonance and singing quality of a grand piano. It is but meet that the house of Steinway & Sons should be the first to place an upright piano before the public that advances this popular shaped instrument far nearer to the ideally perfect piano than any invention on upright pianos has done in years, and again proves that Steinway & Sons deserve the confidence of the musical world' as makers of the artistically musical piano of the day/' **************** All interested are invited to examine the marvelous New Upright Pianos now on exhibition in our warerooms, Steinway Hall, J 7 Van Buren Street J yon Potter & £o
