Introduction 



THIS year we launch the Argo upon its second voyage, trusting- that it will meet with the 
same general approbation as its predecessor. Though not the first annual of this Insti- 
tution it is the first of the Florida State College, and realizing this fact, we have labored, 
not to make it better than the preceding volume, but, if possible, merely to equal it. 
"Whether or not we have succeeded in this we leave the reader to judge. But if this 
book tends in any degree to promote that spirit of true fellowship which is characteristic of all 
colleges, then its efforts have not been in vain and we feel amply repaid for our labor.

SENIOR CLASS. 



Senior fiistory 



THE history of this class demonstrates the appalling fact that the majority of the young men and women who 
enter college do not possess the courage — yes, I may say, with perfect propriety, the backbone — to stick 
a college course through to the end. Think of a class numbering forty-four in the third preparatory and 
dwindling down to the unlucky number " three " by the opening of the Senior. 

Discouraging as it is, such is the history of this class. No surprise that our graduating classes are so 

small, and certain people complain of the rigidness of our curriculum. Our townspeople especially may 

learn a very profitable lesson from the above observation, for the majority of those who withdrew from the 

college are the sons and daughters of those living in town who are n a position to keep their children in 

college, giving them the very best advantages. Unfortunately the boys of these parents prefer to secure 

a position and "make money," and so they leave college, accepting a position " down-town " paying them the 

munificent sum of $15.00 per month, and they board themselves. Such a pity these golden opportunities are 

beyond the reach of our " countrified " boys and girls. 

However, those of us who have been faithful unto the end have many things for which to be thankful. Our 
days have not all been halcyon, strewn with flowers and of easy sailing, nor can any respectable college course be 
so ; nevertheless, we are glad that we did not " give up the ship." 

It has been our pleasure to witness the growth of the institution from an almost local patronage to an attend- 
ance extending to almost every county in Florida. We have also been the recipients of many advantages offered 
by the new improvements made in every department of the college. Last, but not least, we are particularly proud 
of the fact that we shall be the first to take a degree under the new title of the institution. 

F. A. HATHAWAY, Historian. 



To life, it is to linger on, 

To death, it is to die, 

To woman, it is to suffer long, 

To man, it is to mourn, 

To God, it is to reward us all, 

When death is but a name. 

—Mcintosh, in 1901 AKGO. 



To Bilmac : 
We'd fain that you'd explain 
The sense of the foregoing rhyme ; 
It may be good, but it's not understood- 
It certainly beats mv time.

Ube jfivst Htblettc Hesembl\> 




WHEN old Sol had withdrawn his face from the horizon, the youths and maidens ran to an assembly from 
all sides to the Temple of Murphreecles, and when they had become quiet, there arose before them the 
lofty-minded sage, Hathacles, and being well-disposed thus he harangued them : 

" O y e gods and little fishes, this day sees all the youths and maidens gathered together for the 
purpose of improving their strength. Ye did see how at the last Olympic meet Cortocles harangued the 
audience, and Arthurcles did jump fifteen feet, and showed his ability to do much more. Therefore let 
us increase our efforts and show to the bold Hellenes that we are great." 

Thus having spoken he sat down, and the applause was like unto a boiler-shop when rosy-fingered 
Dawn has opened the gates of the morning. Then when the dauntless Williamedes h:id sought silence 
and the crowd became quiet, there arose before them the youthful Meginninus, champion of those who wield the 
well-strung racquet, and whose serves are more terrible than the thunderbolts of the mighty Jove, and thus 
he spoke : 

" We will gain much honor with the racquet and baseball and well-laced football, and our heads will be like 
unto the heads of those who make 100 in the mental contests. We will learn to hurl the discus aud in the gym- 
nasium we will became more proficient than the men of Sparta." 

Then he sat down and the applause was like unto the noise of a million crows in a corn-field. Then all was 
silent in the vast hall until a be'ich of sturdy oak fell over, and the youthful Robicles played a tattoo on the head 
of Kenticles. Then Father Bucholus, large-minded and learned in the lore of all ages, arose, and holding his hand 
aloft thus he prayed : 

"O ye gods dwelling at Olympus, grant us the explanation of this sign and show if it be for good or for evil. 
But if it is pleasing to you to break the cords with which we of this assembly are about to bind ourselves" — Just 
then the wily Burtoucles dashed a burning goo-goo at fawnlike Elesys, and noting this his mighty form shook with 
anger and his eyes shot fire, but restraining his auger, he, with the aid of Venus, continued : 

18 



" Grant, O beautiful Apollo, that this assembly may be au honor to us, aud that by it our youth may be more 
successful in the next Olympic festival." 

Then he explained the ways and means, and he gave them right aud fully each detail aud expense, till they all 
had been explained. Then he sat down. Just like a mighty oak on the mountain, which having been cut all 
around falls and brings dire destruction with it. And the whole assembly murmured assent. 

At this time lion-hearted Durrocles seemed as if joyful Bacchus ruled his mind, and after vainly attempting 
to address the assembly, aged Bucholus bade him march seven Parasangs to the door of the place of departed 
spirits. 

And the assembly broke up and rushed out like unto the mighty waves which roll upou the seashore, and like 
unto a cloud was the dust which arose under the feet of them going. Aud soon ambrosial sleep was diffused 
around the sacred city.

En experiment 



The following experiment is taken from Bierly's New Manual for the chemical laboratory. The experiment 
appears in no other manual of our acquaintance, and is the embodiment of a new principle discovered by this 
famous chemist after a series of researches in his special department. 

Write the reaction of the equation : 

K I + 2 S = ? 

This is a very dangerous experiment — both lime and place should be taken into consideration. 
The result is sometimes disastrous if carelessly performed. 
The action is always violent. Best performed by only two in a dark room. 
Inexperienced experimenters should not attempt it for obvious reasous. 

19 



Mbat is a Grue 1bero ? 



A man who gives the poor a hand, 
And is ready to help his native land, 
One who is ready to do and dare. 
And does the right thing- everywhere; 
One who is ever kind and true, 
And believes in good-will and charity, too, 
Is a hero — true and tried. 

A man who grows stronger year by year. 
And makes the bully cow with fear; 
One who is always doing what's right, 
And for the weak is ready to tight; 
One whose heart is as true as steel. 
And who never says, "I know a great deal," 
Is a hero — true and tried. 

Then up with your sense — oh, boys of to-day: 
With all things not right— away, away; 
Bring up your manners; do what is just; 
Bring up your manners, for show them you must. 
Show the old world what the young one can do; 
Make them respect the Bed. White and Blue, 
Fight off all evils with strength and might. 
Show your true colors, for God helps the right!

MAIN BUILDING. 



Cbe Brier Patch episode 



There is a brilliant young Normal at this college who is now called by the suggestive, but hateful, name, Brier 
Patch Williams. The way he came to have this name is as follows: 

For several weeks the High School boys had been initiating all the new boys (especially the Dormitory boys) 
by seizing them bodily and casting them into a deep and gloomy hole called the brier patch. Now it happened that 
the dignified and brave Normal Williams was thus ingloriously initiated, and not being of a yielding disposition, he 
swore vengeance upon all who thus maltreated him. 

So when a few, in fact very few, Third Year classmen were obliged to return to the college one afternoon for 
physiology work, the brave (?) Williams, collecting about him a crowd of Dormitory boys, in number about twice 
the Third Years, proposed that they, Williams and the crowd, should ti-eat the Third Years to a dose of their own 
medicine and put them into the brier patch. Accordingly this was done, but no sooner was it done than Williams 
regretted his hasty action. 

The next morning Williams set out for school, not, however, without many misgivings as to what treatment he 
would receive. But he was destined to be surprised, for he was not immediately seized and borne away; on the con- 
trary, the boys seemed well disposed toward him. Seeing all this, Williams banished from his mind all fear that he 
would be hazed. But at recess, when he was beginning to swagger again, he was met by the Third Years whom he 
had so lately gloated over and was seized by them. Whereupon Williams, losing all his bravery, begau to beg 
from the bottom of his heart. 

But his prayers were of no avail. He was taken, handled roughly and finally thrown into that most hateful 
hole, the brier patch, where he would most probably have been yet but for the fact that one of the Normals, seeing 
his classmate's plight, came and lifted Williams out of the hole. 

This is how Williams gained the name Brier Patch, and though he still shudders when he is so addressed, he is 
now becoming accustomed to it. 

Moral: Don't act too bravely when just a few are around ; you may have to beg when the crowd catches you.

Junior 1bistor\> 



IN 1896 this class first made its entrance into the Florida State College with a roll of about thirty members, 
and the present year finds us still toiling on to the goal of our desires — graduation in 1903. For five 
long years we have formed our phalanx and bucked the formidable array of examinations and quizzes 
each year, and every time have come off victorious, though we have lost many of our classmates in these 
encounters. 

Still we have no reason to be ashamed; we have the largest Junior class that the college has had 
for years, and if we survive the coming examinations with no diminution in numbers, we will bore the 
public with the greatest number of graduating speeches that they have ever had the pleasure of listening to. 
Only one more year of work and study and we will leave the sheltering wing of our Alma Mater and go out 
into the world to fight the battle of life. 

One more year, then graduation. This is the sentence that is continually quoted to us to inspire the class to 
more diligent work, and each time the professor quotes this the class murmurs in accents low, "Graduation, thou 
art so near and yet so far." 

G. L. WINTHROP, Historian. 



Oh, what a racket's raised, 
When in moments of delight 
A lover's holding tight 
To a waist that's dressed in white, 
To see when 'tis too late 
The brother's grinning face 
From the curtain's folding grace 
Peeping out. 



Oh, what sweet, delicious gladness 
Did my soul with happiness fill 
When her kisses first she gave me. 
Then no more of pleasure craved we 
Than in silence to be sitting.

professor Bucbbols's Iparrot 



A 



SHORT time ago one of the college students happened to meet an old South Florida friend who told 
him the following story on Professor Buehholz : 

When Professor Buehholz first came to this couutry and settled in Florida, he at once conceived a 
great desire to become the possessor of a parrot, and after trying in vain to procure one be decided tc- 
visit a neighboring village where he had heard there was one for sale and purchase the bird. 
Accordingly one morning he set out and before twenty-four hours had elapsed he returned home the 
proud possessor of a fine green parrot, which, as his proud mister said, could talk like a streak. 

For several weeks after Professor Buehholz obtained possession of his parrot things went well, till 
one day the parrot developed an astonishing propensity for swearing at any stranger who chanced tc- 
visit the house. Of course this gave the Professor no end of worry, and he used all the means in his power 
to break the bird of this pernicious habit. But all the cures were tried in vain, for every time a stranger came tc- 
the residence the bird would start in and denounce him in the most profane and vituperative language ; often 
causing the would-be visitor to leave the house much offended and hurt. 

Things went on in this way for about two months and the Professor had almost despaired of ever curing his 
pet, when some one suggested that the next time a stranger came to the house and the parrot began his tirade that 
the Professor should pour a bucket of water over it and see if this would not effect a cure. This the Professor 
determined to do the first time an opportunity presented itself. As it happened he did not have to wait long, for 
the next day he saw a stranger come into the yard and approach the door. 

28 



The Professor at ouce began his preparations for curing his parrot of its bad habit. Getting the bird ho put it 
in its cage and sat it down on the porch ; he then got his bucket of water, set it near at hand and waited fur the 
parrot to begin its tirade. No sooner had these preparations been completed than Polly, seeing the stranger 
advancing, broke out in a volley of oaths which she shouted at the top of her voice. But the Professor was ready 
and waiting; picking up his bucket he dashed the water over the unsuspecting parrot and then snatching up the 
cage began to whirl it around his head as if determined to kill the bird. 

After he had shaken the parrot until it was almost dead, he put down the cage and awaited further developments. 
For a few moments the parrot was dazed and stupefied from its rough treatment, but finally raising its head its eye 
lighted on the Professor, and, brightening up, it yelled at the top of its voice: " Hello, Professor! where the 
hell were you when that cyclone struck V J. P. Z.

Commencement Exercises 

1901 



Sunday night 

Sunday evening, June 2, i901, the annual Baccalaureate sermon of the Florida State College was delivered 
by the Kev. W. E. H. Mabry in the Methodist church. 

The students assembled at the Presbyterian church shortly before the appointed time; (hey were then arranged 
in classes and marched in a long procession to the Methodist church, where a number of seats had been reserved 
for them. 

The church was crowded with an attentive and appreciative congregation, who had the pleasure of listening 
to one of the finest and most appropriate sermons ever delivered before the students of the College. 

^5* t&^ 1r* 

Monday flight 

On Monday night of Commencement the Platonic Debating Society held its fourth Commencement debate 
The question and debaters were as iollows: Question, "Resolved, That the United States Should Annex Cuba." 

The first speaker on the affirmative was Mr. G. L. Winthrop, who in a well-written and finely delivered de- 
bate gave some striking points for the consideration of the judges. 

Following Mr. Winthrop came Mr. Provence, the first speaker on the negative. Mr. Provence's debate was 
full of well-taken points, and the way in which he delivered them added greatly to their effect. 

The next speaker was Mr. Robert McCord, who closed the affirmative side of the debate. Mr. McCord's 
speech was excellent, and his slow and deliberate way of presenting his points to the audience could not have been 
improved upon. 

The last speaker was Mr. Coles, who closed the argument for the negative in a masterly way. He 
handled the subject under discussion in a careful and logical manner, which did not fail to impress all present. 

After the debate the Rev. Dr. Carter made the annual Commencement address to the Society in his character- 
istic good style. The address was short and pithy and it is needless to say enjoyed by all present. 

After Dr. Carter's address the judges, after much debate among themselves, rendered their decision in favor 
of the affirmative, and awarded the Winthrop medal to Mr. McCord as the best all-round debater. 

32 



Cwesday night 

First Commencement Debate of the Anaxagorean Literary Society. 

On Tuesday night of Commencement Mun roe's Opera House was rilled to overflowing. The occasion was the 
first public debate of the Anaxagorean Literary Society. The exercises opened with a prayer by the Rev. S. L. 
McCarty, of the Presbyterian church. Hon. William B. Lamar, Attorney-General of Florida, and an honorary 
member of the Society, presided and delivered a few weli-chosen remarks, in which he paid glowing tributes to the 
Society. 

The question under discussion was, " Resolved, That the Uuited States Should Take no Part in the Partition 
-of China." The debaters and the order in which they spoke were: William Bloxham Crawford, affirmative; Asa 
Bushnell Clark, negative; Julian Thomas Howard, affirmative; William Munro Mcintosh, negative. All were 
charter members of the Society. 

The speeches were limited to fifteen minutes, and at the conclusion of the argument the judges retired, and 
after deliberation returned a decision in favor of the negative and awarded the medal to Mr. Clark. The judges 
were: W. N. Sheats, B. E. McLin and H. E. Day, all State officers. Day was in favor of negative, Sheats in 
favor of affirmative, and McLin, undecided at first, cast his vote for negative. 

The debate was a complete success. Every inch of ground, so to speak, was contested by the orators. The 
following from the Daily Capital is descriptive of the feeling of the Society : 

"The Anaxagoreans are jubilant over their first debate, and to those who leave the Society this year, as well 
as those who remain, the memories of the night of June 4, 1901, will ever linger in their lives as the sweetest 
reminiscence of their college career." 

33 



Wednesday morning 

The undergraduate orations at the last Commencement exceeded in interest those of any previous year. It 
was a crowded house that greeted the speakers, and a keen interest was taken in the exercises from the time Mr. 
Meginniss begau his explanation of the "Dreyfus Case" until Mr. Crawford paid his last tribute to "Dixie's Un- 
crowned King." 

In connection with these exercises Messrs. F. B. Winthrop, F. A. Hathaway and W. B. Crawford spoke for 
the contestant's place in the Florida Intercollegiate Oratorical Association, the latter winning the coveted prize. 

Wednesday flight 

On Wednesday night, the last night of Commencement, the graduating exercises were conducted, and in a 
manner which far surpassed in interest and brilliancy all the other nights of Commencement. 

Notwithstanding the great heat of the evening, a larger crowd than ever before assembled to see the graduates 
receive their diplomas. 

After the invocation by Rev. W. F. H. Mabry, of the M. E. Church, the program was opened by Miss 
Leila Jackson, who charmed the audience with her oration on the subject, "Southern Poets," a most interesting 
and carefully prepared speech. 

During the intermission the audience enjoyed some fine music. 

Next Miss Bessie M. Saxon, with her subject, "The Master Touch," won the admiration and applause of the 
entire audience. 

After strains of melodious music Mr. A. B. Clark came forward, and in a graceful, earnest mauner rendered 
his oration, " America for Americans." His speech was logically and well written and his delivery was straight- 
forward and attractive. 

At the close of Mr. Clark's speech Mr. W. H. Ellis, of Quincy, addressed the students in a few well-chosen 
remarks. 

After the award of medals and the presentation of diplomas, Prof. A. A. Murphree, in a short address most 
gratifying to the students, announced that the Seminary West of the Suwannee would be known hereafter as the 
Florida State College. 

Thus clostd the forty-fourth and last year of the Seminary West of the Suwannee.

Gbe 1>UU$op flDaiD 



A little maid had come to town, 
And on the hill-top settled down; 
But she was cold, and coy, and staid. 
The question was. Who'll win the maid? 




There came Rill Crawford, tall and fair, 
With handsome face and auburn hair. 
On bended knee full long he prayed — 
He could not win the hill-top maid. 

There came young' Johnston, fresh and green; 
No sweeter youth was ever seen. 
He sweetly suns, he deftly played — 
He could not win the hill-top maid. 

There came Paul Carter, so serene. 
With dignity and kingly mien ; 
And at her feet his heart he la id- 
He could not win the hill-top maid. 

There came a Scotchman, bold and true, 
Who many months this maid did woo; 
His head was light, his clothes were frayed, 
But he it was who won the maid. 

oh! some have laughed and some have cried, 
And some from broken hearts have died, 
But off they go through wood and glade — 
The Scotchman and the hill-top maid.

Go a Cigarette 



My one companion of whom I think, 

My friend in work begun. 
May you be always near my side 

Until life's race is run. 



Ofttimes. when I look at your glowing heart. 

A face I seem to see: 
One which, at times when all alone, 

Has oft appeared to me. 



At times I hear a voice that says 

In accents finely spun, 
"Take to your side a better-half, 

'Twere better two than one." 




Upon these words I've pondered much. 

And thought to try and see, 
But never, if such life-long bond 

Should break the truce with thee. 

So. comrade, may we never part. 

But let we two be one, 
Tied witli a single golden thread 

Until our work is done.

g\ Sophomore, with only half of the old members answering to roll-call. From an enrollment of fourteen 

^^\ it lias diminished t<> nine, and two of these nine have matriculated this session ; so this leaves only seven 

of last year's class Of the fourteen who composed the Freshman Class of 1900-1901, three have entered 

upon the duties of active life, one being in the employ of Uncle Sam in the Post Office Department, 

another, at present, a clerk in one of the leading business houses of this city, while the third is engaged in 

the rural districts " teaching the young idea how to shoot." Four have been left behind in the exacting 

coils of examinations, and the other seven, plus two new matriculates, form the present Sophomore Class. 

In our studies we are not the brightest in the college, but always (?) try to do the work assigned to us to the 

best of our ability. Three of us are studying for the degree of Bachelor of Arts, three for the degree of Bachelor 

of Letters, and the other three for the degree of Bachelor of Science. 

As to our ability, we take pride in stating that two of our members have very ably represented their Society 
(the Platonic) in public debates. 

Notwithstanding the smallness of our class, we are not discouraged, and will endeavor to improve our opportu- 
nities and make up in quality what we lack in quantity, that we may be able to receive our diplomas in 1904.

Rules and Regulations of a Student 



There is a certain learned student of the Florida State College whose cognomen is Hathaway. It so happened 
that a committee from the Argo staff called upon this illustrious gentleman one evening to induce him to write 
something which we could consider for publication. Nothing we could say would induce him to write for the 
Argo, and rather than have the Annual appear with nothing from his gifted pen, we publish below a card which 
we saw hung over the door, mantel and bed. We think it characteristic of the young man.

PLATONIC DEBATING SOCIETY 



History Platonic Debating Society 



In writing the history of the Platonic Debating Society, there is so much of importance to chronicle that it 
baffles the power of the historian even to begin. Yet by making a brief summary of the most important events, he 
hopes to put the Society before the public in its true light. 

The Platonic Debating Society was organized on December 17, 1897, and since that time its phenomenal 
growth, both in strength and numbers, has proved most satisfactory. 

The first President of the Society was Mr. W. S Whiternan, Jr., and since he made his farewell address at the 
end of his most prosperous term, eleven presidents have guided the Society, and each one by his conscientious work 
has so far surpassed the others that at the present time R. B. McCord presides over the largest and strongest debat- 
ing society that the college has ever seen. 

Since the first commencement debate, the Society has held five similar debates and as many anniversary de- 
bates, and each time we have sustained the enviable reputation which we have always borne of being the leading 
-debating society of the State. 

But the crowning glory of the Platonic Debating Society is that during the year '99 she participated in and 
won the first intercollegiate debate ever held in the State of Florida. This debate was against the Florida Agri- 
cultural College. It was during Mr. Mcintosh's administration that the challenge was sent to Lake City, and after 
a few preliminary arrangements, the challenge was accepted, and the question — Resolved, That the United States 
Senators Should be Elected by a Direct Vote of the People — was chosen. In this debate Mr. Asa B. Clark and 
Mr. Paul Carter represented the Platonic Debating Society. After allowing the visiting society the choice of sides, 
the negative fell to us. 

The debate was held in Munro's Opera House on the night of May 4, 1899, and resulted in a most glorious 
-victory for the Society. 

49 



Thus ended the first and only intercollegiate debate ever held by any debating society at the Florida State 
College, and the masterful way in which it was won has linked the name of Platonic forever with that of the insti- 
tution. 

This closes our history. We do not care to sing our own praises ; we leave that for others. For six years we 
have stood the test of time, and never yet has the Garnet and Gray been found wanting. We have gained honors 
for our Alma Mater by winning for her the only intercollegiate debate ever held in the State, and we feel that we 
deserve the reputation which we have so nobly won. 

The present day finds the Society with the largest roll of any debating society in the school, and in the dim 
future as long as the Florida State College rears its massive portals above the red clay hills of old Leon, we shall 
see the Platonic Debating Society standing forth as it now does as the first society of the State. 

G. L. WINTHROP, Historian.

ANAXAGOREAN LITERARY SOCIETY 



Ibiston? 



The Anaxagorean Literary Society is now in its second year, and is in as prosperous a condition as it has been 
since its organization. 

The appearance of the society at the last Commencement exercises exceeded the fondest expectations of its 
members and numerous friends throughout the State. The red and black was upon each occasion greeted with en- 
thusiastic cheers and its bearers crowned with honors. The honor graduate and winners of the Fleming medal and 
F. I. O. A. credentials were wearers of the red and black. 

The movement to publish the College Annual this year by the Literary societies was proposed and carried into 
effect by the Anaxagorean Society, and a strong team was elected for this year's book. This society is honored 
this year in this capacity by having Miss Blanche Paret wear the red and black as its representative upon the edi- 
torial staff. 

The society is under obligations to its many friends over the State for money contributed to help furnish the 
society hall. We hope to show our appreciation of the same by giving an interesting program at each of the 
Commencement exercises. 

We are still holding the championship of Intercollegiate debate in Florida, but have not had to defend said 
title this year. We also take a pardonable pride in the honor shown the Hon. William B Lamar in the dedication 
of this volume. He is one of our honorary members and stands closer to the hearts of Anaxagoreans than any one 
not an active member. May his years be full of honors and happiness. 

Of our success and value to the Florida State College we refer you to our friends. We prefer not to sing our 
■own praises, but to the mass of people who know us we are willing to risk our reputation. 

We are glad that bitter college politics is a thing of the past, and we assure our rival friends that in promoting 
the interests of the Florida State College they will find no truer friends, none ready to join them more eagerly and 
to exert their every effort at all times than they will in the Anaxagoreans. That friendly relations between us may 
be once more restored is our fondest wish.

Cbe Cak of an Eventful night 



It was the fifteenth of March, and the whole community was wild with excitement over the wonderful feats- 
performed on that day by the celebrated Prof. Boone, hypnotist and mind-reader. Every one in town had seen the 
Professor make his daring drive in search of the hidden key, and every one was determined to go to the show and see 
the rest of his marvelous feats. The only persons who seemed to be doubtful as to whether or not they would see 
the show were the dormitory boys. Many of them had been to see Prof. Buchholz and besought him to let them go r 
but it seemed as if "old Buch" did not approve of Hindoo charms, and up to five o'clock he flatly refused to con- 
sider the petitions at all. 

Finally, however, in order to have some peace, he made it known that he would let any boy go to the show who 
would offer himself as a subject for the hypnotist to work on. 

At first this proposition put a damper on the would-be show-goers, for no one was particularly anxious to be 
hypnotized ; however, when the time came to go to the show about seven of the bravest boys set out in company 
with Professor Buchholz. On arriving at the Opera House the boys watched the hypnotist hoodoo the audience and 
read the minds of the committee. And when he called for subjects for his hypnotic exhibition, true to their word, 
Bradford, Holliday, Durr, Murray, Stoner and Davis ascended the stage. 

When the required number of subjects had been collected Boone began his tests. First he tried Bradford, but 
that gentleman was so afraid of being hoodooed that he kept up a continual grin and was declared an unfit subject. 
The next college student to go up against the game was Holliday, who, on account of having no depth of mind and 
not being able to concentrate what little he had, was likewise dismissed. The remaining boys, however, all proved 
to be easy prey for the Professor, and the show commenced. 

After scaring the subjects nearly to death the Professor put them all to sleep and then with many mysterious 
gestures and incantations told them that on awakening they would find themselves covered with bees. As soon as 
the hypnotist finished speaking the boys awoke, and the scene that then took place will linger in the mind 
of the writer for many moons. Hardly had the subjects opened their eyes than their faces became convulsed with 

58 



imaginary pain, and with an ear-splitting howl they hegan to fight the bees as if their lives depended on it. Over 
and over they would roll, their faces purple with terror, until finally, weak from exhaustion, aud, in imagination, 
nearly stung to death, they lay panting on the stage. 

The next time the Professor awakened the boys it was to ride a bicycle on chairs. The obedient subjects had 
no sooner received the command to mount than, forgetting their exhaustion, they sprang upon the chairs aud began 
a record-breaking run. For about three minutes they pedaled in a way that made Jimmy Michael look like thirty 
cents. With the perspiration streaming down their faces they leaned over the handle-bars and ran their chairs 
around the stage until the audience was weak with laughter. As soon as the boys had made about three century 
runs the Professor again put them to sleep until the next test. 

The next and last test in which the zealous subjects participated was the most ludicrous sight ever witnessed by 
any audience. The hypnotist spread a broad stream of flour across the stage and then gave the following instruc- 
tions to the unsuspecting sleepers : "Boys, when you wake your heads will be enveloped in flames, which will burn 
you most horribly until you put them out in this cool stream of water'' (pointing to the flour). No sooner had the 
boys heard the startling news than they sprang up, and with a scream made for the flour. They rolled in it and 
bathed their burning heads, all the while keeping up cries of pain that would have moved the most heartless. At 
last, after haviDg converted themselves into veritable snowballs, the Professor clapped his hands and all were 
brought from the hypnotic trance. For one moment they stood dazed aud bewildered, and then with sheepish looks 
the whole push beat a hasty retreat into the wings, a sheepier but a wiser crowd. F. B. W.

Cbc Oratorical Association 



An account ot the exercises of the Oratorical Association at the last commencement is given in full in this vol- 
ume ot The Argo. 

The contest was an interesting one. The speakers were greeted Wednesday morning of commencement week 
with a large and enthusiastic audience. That night the decision was rendered in favor of Mr. Crawford, and 
Governor Jennings presented him with the credentials as the representative of the Florida State College to the State 
Intercollegiate Contest at Jacksonville. 

On account of the Jacksonville fire of last May the people of that city were unable to fulfill their promises to- 
the Association. The contest was consequently postponed until the 29th day of February. 

Owing to a dispute of the representatives of the Fast Florida Seminary, which institution held the presidency of 
the Association, it was found impracticable to hold the contest this year. 

In justice to the Florida State College we desire to state that both our representative and contestant were ready 
and prepared for the battle at any time, and the failure of the second annual contest of the Association was due to- 
no fault of theirs.

Tresbman Ristory 



In reading over the histories of the other classes of this Institution, you will find it almost invariably the case 
that the historian says, " We have had a large class, but frequent examinations have thinned out our ranks." In 
this respect, if in no other, our history differs from the histories of the other classes. Our class, instead of having 
been diminished, has been augmented, having had last year an enrollment of eighteen, and this year one of twenty- 
five. 

We will not state that we are the best, most learned, studious class of the school ; we invite any visitor to come 
and see what we are doing. 

Do not think th it by this we mean that we have no pride iu our class. Far from it ! We simply mean that, 
talk being cheap, we had far rather you would visit us and see what we are doing toward making ourselves learned 
men and women. 

AVe have always done our duty in the school, and some day we will graduate, and if we do not carry to gradua- 
tion the largest class in the history of the schod then we will be very much surprised. 

BERSHE A. MEGINNISS, Historian.

Stonawaba's Mooing 



Should you ask ine whence this fable 

Which I am about to tell you, 

I should straightway rise and answer, 

From the very current rumor 

Spread by every idle scholar 

In the mighty college wigwam. 

But now, lest you grow impatient, 

I will onward to my table. 

And recount in words straightforward, 

And without exaggeration. 

All the mishaps and adventures 

That beset the course of true love 

The wooing of Stonawaha. 

On the hill-top at the college, 

In the ladies' dormitory, 

Dwelt a maiden, sweet, and lovely. 

Fairer was she than the dawning 

Of the fairest day in summer. 

And with deep brown eyes this maiden 

Had enamored Stonawaha, 

And he sought on all occasions 

To be near and in her presence. 

But it seemed to this young warrior 

That on all of these occasions. 

When he would have told this maiden, 

Told this little Ellehaha, 

Of his love and his devotion, 

That the wily old Professor 

Always busted in upon them, 

And would speak without a warning, 



"You two children now must scamper 

Unto your respective wigwams. 

For you know 'tis 'gainst the orders 

Laid down by the elder chieftains 

For a young man and a maiden 

To be talking in this manner." 

Tims were all the meetings 

Of this young and hopeful couple 

Watched and closely guarded, 

Until mad to desperation, 

This young warrior Stonawaha, 

Vowed that he would meet this maiden, 

Meet his little Ellehaha, 

Some fine evening off the campus, 

And to her he'd tell the story 

Of his love and his devotion. 

So it happened that one evening, 

When the west, wind, gently blowing, 

Scattered all the leaves of Autumn 

To and fro among the pine trees, 

That this little Ellehaha 

Went, alone unto the village — 

To the town of Tallahassee; 

And Stonawaha, on the lookout, 

Saw her leave the mighty wigwam 

And he speaks thus unto himself: 

"I will leave this noisy wigwam, 

And will slip into the village 

Meet this little maid returning— 

Meet my little Ellehaha. 



77 



Then, beneath the rosy sunset, 
I will plead my cause unto her." 
Thus he thought, and like an arrow, 
Without any hesitation, 
Went and met his Ellehaha, 
And the two strolled home together. 
Quite oblivious of surroundings; 
Only proving that old saying 
That true love is blind as can be. 
And while they strolled on together, 
Like two little doves a flying, 
They were met by an old Indian, 
Him whose name was Buchowissa. 
And the next day lie called to him 



The young couple he'd caught strolling 
In the dusky evening twilight, 
And he put this sentence on them: 
"For two weeks you both shall suffer 
Lone confinement in your wigwams; 
While the others play and frolic 
All the evening on the campus." 
This now ends my little fable, 
And 1 pray you, gentle reader. 
If perchance you see out strolling 
Any young and hopeful couple, 
To remind and g-ently tell them 
To look out for that old Indian. 
Him whose name is Buchowissa.

Reveries of a Conceited Tool 



Conceit in weakest bodies, strougest works. — Hamlet. 

For the life of me I cannot see why they beat me for President of the Society yesterday. They have been 
telling me for a week that I would win easily. When I went into the Society yesterday, they cheered me from all 
parts of the room and called for a speech. I got up and made the best speech that has ever been delivered before 
the Society, and I don't see how it was that I only received three votes iu the election a few minutes later. 

Murphree is a bully old chap, he is. He says I'm the smartest and handsomest fellow in college, but I cau't 
see why it was he sent Hathaway to Jacksonville to make up some statistical data for the school when he knows I'm 
the smartest ; and then again I have b en to a city and know all about them, while poor old Hathaway will get 
lost down there. 

I bought me a fine suit of clothes last week, and you should have seen me filing into church Sunday, aud my 
girl looking right at me. You bet she felt proud when she saw everybody in the church admiring me. 

Really I think I know too much to continue at Murphree's little schuol, and if I cannot enter the spring term 
Senior class at Harvard, I think I'll get Bill Jennings or Teddy Roosevelt to appoint me to some high position, 
where I can be a power over men. By jo, this is just what I will do. I wonder why I have not thought of it be- 
fore. My! but won't my little " pullet " ieel proud to know her fellow is a Senator or a Consul-General, for in- 
stance.

MONROE STREET, TALLAHASSEE. 



n Communication 



To the Editors of the Argo. 

Well! Well! Well! So you're trying to get out another book, are you? The State College to publish 
the second volume of their Annual and by a new staff? Why I thought it was impossible to publish one of 
those books unless Asa Clark, Bill Long and Bill Crawford had something to do with it. 

I was at the college not long ago and met your faculty for the first time. But ain't they cracker jacks? 
Ob, my! what a conglomeration! 

I had not been to Tallahassee in many years, and when my old friend introduced me to your man 
Murphree as Senator — (this was my nickname at college), you would have died to have seen him bowing and 
scraping his feet to me. Says he, " Senator I am pleased to meet you. Yes, we have a good college here, 
but just see what we could have with only a little more money." I inquired if he had room enough. 
" Room," said he, " we are crowded to death. Just look how Bierly's crowded. But you don't know Bierly, 
do you? Well, come right along and you shall see our curiosity shop," and with this he led us to the laboratory, 
and there we met that laughiug, braying man — known as Bierly. But, Oh my ! ain't that laugh fierce ? 
" You see," said Albert, "this is the Senior Class at work. You know Bierly Hath a- way of Shu-tan ing by 
Day," at which old Bierly roared, and the windows shook beneath the mighty sound. 

Bierly was certainly a curiosity, but we found a German in the faculty that beats anything we ever saw. 
This pet German is quite a contrast to Bierly. Where the latter has smiles and a huge laugh, the former 
has frowns and a threatening, thundering voice. Old Buch is rather interesting though after all, and I doubt if 
the college could well do without him. He teaches the teachers to teach the unteached and teaches Albert to do 
his duty. Albert in very proud of him. 

85 



From Buck's roo.n we went to see Bre'r Calhoun. Now Calhoun is really a nice fellow, and he will talk (o 
you for hours on his travels in Europe without thinking for an instant that you would ever tire of his wonderful 
tales He is very proud of Willie Long, whom we also met. Willie is the teacher of Latin and is making a big 
rep. both in that branch and in the art of winning hearts from Tallahassee Society and playing hearts and other 
games at the card club meetings over in the city. 

I met Miss Miller and realized that the Florida State College was receiving the valuable services of as noble a 
woman as ever giaced a chair in the historic old institution. 

The regret of my visit was my failure to see Arthur Williams, as Albert told me he was led-headed, a 
Presbyterian preacher and a Mason. I would like to see such a combination. 

With much politeness Albert bowed me away with the feeble request that I would exert my influences in the 
next Legislature to secure a larger appropriation for the college. Im. A. Liar.

tourrv? anfc> Buckrose 



The term \v;is done through mon.ns that lay 

P>ui Murry stopped to chew the rag; 

"Though nowhere 1 would rather place 

This brawny fist than in your face; 

Let noit old anger friendship mar. 

And Buckrose now receive my paw." 

But Buckrose then got on his head — 

Glared at Murry and this he said: 

"Tis only for my colleague's good 

I lay the rod of hickory wood 

On each fresh kid who cuts the fool 

In dormitory and in school. 

I've labored for my school alone 

From darkest night to dewey morn; 

The hand of Buckrose is his own, 

And now will Murry's collar take 

And on his back a hickory break." 

Burned Murry's freckled cheek like tire. 

And each red hair stood up with ire. 

"And this to me" he said. 

"And 'twere not for your movements quick 

Such hand as Murry's had not spared 

To soak you with a brick. 

And first I tell you, teacher vile, 

He that doth Murry's temper rile. 

Although the smallest in fhe place, 

Can lead you quite a lengthy chase. 

And Buckrose more I tell you here, 

Even in thy pitch of pride. 

Here in this school with Murphree near, 



Nay never look for Billy Long, 

And handle not that hickory thong. 

Old sport you are defied. 

And if vou say 1 am not game 

To do I lie tilings which I have named 

In school and on this very floor, 

You do not Murry's temper know." 

On Buckrose's face the flush of rage 

O'er came the ashen hue of age. 

He sputtered out "And do you dare 

To beard the teacher in his liar. 

Old Buckrose in his school; 

And then you hope unhurt to go? 

Not if I myself do know. 

Ho! Bierly. man the entrance door 

And catch him if he run." 

Young Murry turned — well was his need— 

And summoned all his mighty speed; 

Like Sheafs of old he made for home 

And left, the teacher all alone. 

To run he had so short a time 

He left his hat and books behind. 

He did not think about the rear, 

But nailed old Bierly in the ear. 

When Murry reached a safer land 

He stopped and turned with clenched hand— 

A shout of loud defiance sends 

To Buckrose and his teacher friends.

HE man to whose credit is due 
the rapid rise and wonderful 
progress of the Florida State 
College. We believe him to 
be one of the best college 
presidents in the South, and 
we are shared in this belief by a majority of 
the people of Florida. 

A man of untiring energy, of constant 
sympathy with the aspirations of all his stu- 
dents, of sound judgment, of high integrity 
and rugged honesty, he has, by his interest 
in the students, and the example set before 
them of his pure, noble life, won their love 
and esteem forever.

Of all amusements I've enjoyed, 
Wishing seems the cheapest, 
For I can wish, and think, and wish, 
Even when I'm weakest. 

I wish that friends were always friends ; 
Their motives pure and true ; 
I wish the good were many more, 
And hypocrites were few. 

I wish that envy, jealousy and hate, 
And other mean emotions, 
Were buried many feet beneath 
The darkest depths of ocean. 

I wish again that innocence were free 
From the poisonous tongue of slander : 
I wish that all that people say 
Were fraught with truth and candor. 

I wish that envy, hell-born envy, 

A flame from regions low, 

Would leave the good and pure in peace 

And seek his berth below. 

I wish the slanderer were not lost 
To all the love of purity. 
He'll cause the fairest flowers to droop 
And wither in their beauty.

The editors of the second volume of The Argo would not feel they had done their solemn duty to their literary 
societies and to the student body, did they fail to make a proper mention and give due credit to the editorial staff of 
the first issue of the college Annual. To the bright set of editors who first launched The Argo upon its tempestuous 
seas and guided it saiely through its initial trip the Florida State College owes a debt of gratitude. Though our 
task has been no pleasaut one, yet many a thorn has been taken from our pathway, in the issuance of this volume of 
the Annual, by the gallant baud of young students who first undertook this difficult task, and to them we tip our 
hats. 

The editors of Volume I. of our publication have left the historic walls of our institution and have gone forth 
to battle in life's mad struggle, but pleasant memories remain with their student friends here, and it is the sincere 
wish of us all that success may crown their efforts. 

We take great pleasure in presenting on the opposite page a half-tone group of the staff to whom The Argo 



owes its origin.

editorials 



Now that the two dormitories have been erected, we feel that there is little left for us to wish for. The dormi- 
tories are large, beautiful buildings, and the students from a distance are to be congratulated upon having such 
comfortable quarters in which to work. 



The organization of the Olympian Athletic Association opens a new era in college athletics here. No longer 
will the F. S. C. take a back seat in athletics in this State, but it may be safely prophesied that in a very few years 
she will rank foremost upon the track and field. 



The annual Intercollegiate contest of the F. I. O. A. has been postponed until November, 1902. When, how- 
ever, it does come off we feel confident that the Florida State College will be the winner, for we kuow that our 
contestant will do all in his power to make us victorious. 



We have labored hard and our work is done. When The Argo makes its appearance Commencement will be 
near at hand, and we close these pages with a sincere wish for the happiness of all, and that the Commencement 
festivities may exceed in brilliancy those of former years. With hearts full of gratitude for the honors shown us, 
we bid you, one and all, adieu.

The oldest State College in Florida. Established 1851. Operated continuously since November, 1856. Un- 
der its charter it would be competent for the Board of Education to maintain a University, and it was from 1882- 
1885 the Academic Department of the Florida University. The Law and Medical Departments being discontinued 
in 1885, the Literary Department was popularly known as the West Florida Seminary until 1901, when this title 
was changed to Florida Si ate College. 

The facilities for instruction are excellent, there being three well-equipped laboratories — physical, chemical 
and biological and physiological — also museum, library, and costly surveying and engineering outfits, to which have 
been added this year $1,500 worth of apparatus. 

Three collegiate degrees are conferred in course, to-wit: B.A., B.Sc. and B.L. In the B.A. course Greek 
and Latin are emphasized; in the B.Sc. course modern languages and physical sciences are giveu prominence, while 
in the B.L. course English, German and the Romance languages are the principal brauches. No honorary degrees 
are conferred. The diplomas conferred in the collegiate degrees of this institution have admitted the holders thereof, 
without further examination, to the medical department ot the Johns Hopkins University and to the Senior Class 
of Boston University.

The policy of the Board is to select as members of the faculty only trained specialists from the best universities 
of this country and Europe. 

The following departments are maintained : 

I. The College. 

II. The Teachers' Training School. 
III. The High School. 
The campus is situated on a high hill on the western side of the city, and commands extensive views of the 
surrounding country. College Hall, the main building, is a handsome and commodious brick structure and well 
adapted to the needs of a collegiate institution. The two large boarding halls recently erected upon the grounds 
afford the best accommodations, including furnished room and table fare at $10 per calendar month. These build- 
ings are furnished with steam heat, baths, toilets, and the latest and most approved sanitary plumbing, rendering 
them as complete and comfortable as first-class hotels.
