WE RESPECTFULLY DEDICATE THIS THE SECOND 
VOLUME OF BOBASMELA TO 

DR. WILLIAM BELTON MURRAH, 

TO WHOSE JUDGMENT AND ABILITY MUCH OF 
'the SUCCESS OF MILLSAPS COLLEGE IS DUE. 




DR. WILLIAM BELTON' MURRAH. 



WILLIAM BELTON MURRAH. 



A few years since, when I was speaking to a school man of much experience in a neigh- 
boring State in regard to accepting a position in Millsaps College, he said : "Accept it by 
all means; much of your success as a teacher depends on your president. Tl ere is no bet- 
ter college president in the South than Dr. Murrah." From this point of view I purpose 
saying something of our president as an executive and as a worthy model for voung men. 

A native of Alabama, and a graduate of the Southern University, at Greensboro, Ala- 
bama, he early became indentified with Mississippi, and there is to-day no native Mississip- 
pian who is more ardently devoted to his State than Dr. Murrah. His closest friends are 
surprised at times at the intimate knowledge he has of men and measures not simply in 
the educational and ecclesiastic^ fields, but also in business and politics. Those who 
know him best have found that under a very placid exterior he conceals an ability, like 
that of Secretary Taft, of accomplishing a vast amount of work without appearing to be 
bjsy, and of forming estimates of things while apparently hearing nothing. "He dis- 
poses of immense quantities of work with an air of beneficent leisure." 

Soon after graduating from the Southern University he joined the North Mississippi 
Conference, and was stat'cned successivfly at Oxfcid, Wircra end Atcidttn. In igg6 he 
entered upon educational work, and connected himself with Whitworth College. From 
the position of vice-president of this institution he was called to take full charge of the 
work at Millsaps College when the College was organized. He is the only member of the 
Faculty who was with the College at its inception, and in a peculiar sense is entitled to 
feel that its marvelous success is his life work. 

Dr. Murrah is one of those men whom "the king delights to honor." In 1887 the 
degree of D.D. was conferred on him b}- Centenary College, and in 1897 he was made an 
LL.D. by Wofford College. His own Conference has conferred on him every honor in its 
power, and he is now representing it for the sixth time in the General Conference of his 
church. In 1891 he was one of the representatives for his denomination to the Ecumeni- 
cal Conference held in Washington, D. C, and in 1901 he represented his church when 
the same body met in London. In 1892 he was the fraternal messenger from his church 
to the Methodist Church of Canada, and in 1898 he was elected General Secretary of the 
Board of Education of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. One of the bright tra- 

6 



ditions of the College is the ovation with which the students received Bishop Galloway's 
announcement that Dr. Murrah had consented, at the urgent request of the Board of 
Trustees, to give up this highest educational honor in his church in order to continue his 
work at Millsaps College. 

There are no better judges of character in the world than college students. They 
are quick to see merit and to penetrate sham and cant. It would be hard to find a college 
president who commands a more genuine respect and confidence than Dr. Murrah. Hav- 
ing had peculiar opportunities for knowing the students and their real opinions, I cannot 
recall a single instance of a student who has not implicitly accepted the justice of Dr. 
Murrah's position, even when he announces that some pet diversion cannot be tolerated. 
Perhaps the greatest benefit that a college student gets from his course is the new ideals 
he forms and the inspiration he receives from his instructors. One would not go far 
wrong in ascribing a large part of the phenomenal success that has crowned the course of 
Millsaps boys at home and abroad to the inspiration of a college president, who is a 
strong executive, a Christian scholar, a polished orator, and a manly gentleman. 

In his relations with his faculty Dr. Murrah has the quality without which all other 
good qualilnes are worse than useless — tact. I know of absolutely no other college in 
which for over fourteen vears there has not been a single case of friction between execu- 
tive and faculty. Every member of the Millsaps Faculty feels that Dr. Murrah is a per- 
sonal friend and a svmpathic adviser in the work of his department. 

Dr. Murrah is still in the prime of life, and in the bright future that is now opening 
before the College its friends love to think of his firm hand and wise direction as leading 
on to opportunities of still greater usefulness. — /. E. W .

The session of 1905-1906 has been prosperous, notwithstanding a rather unpropitious 
beginning. The opening had to be postponed six weeks because of quarantines, but the 
lost time has been made up, and good work has been done. The College has also made a 
marked advance in its material equipment. Last Commencement the Trustees decided 
to add $100,000 to the endowment fund, and, through the work of Bishop Galloway and 
Dr. Murrah, the whole of this amount is now in sight. In March, Mr. Carnegie offered to 
g^ve the, College ?i 5,000 for a library building on condition that an endowment of the same 
amount for the library should be secured. Major Millsaps at once gave the $15,000; and 
it is expected to have the building completed by the opening of the next session. 

The Board of Editors has endeavored to make this the second volume of Bobashela 
a fit souvenir of a prosperous session, and if it proves to be such it will accomplish all we 
hope for it. We have done our best, and we present this volume just as it is, without 
apologizing for its shortcomings or asking praise for its virtues. 

We take this opportunity to thank those who have so kindly helped us. First, we 
wish to acknowledge our obligations to Professors Kern and Walmsley, who have aided us 
with contributions and with valuable suggestions and kindly advice. Our thanks are also 
due to Misses Laura Ray and Bonnie Moore and to Mr. L. K. Carlton for contribu- 
tions to the Art Department. We are indebted to Mr. J. B. Huddleston for some 
excellent kodak views of the campus. We cordially thank all those who have aided 
us, whether with contributions or otherwise, and we wish to express our appreciation of 
the courtesies shown us by the Faculty and student-body.

HISTORY OF THE SENIOR CLASS- 



Like all other great organizations, the Class of igc6 had its beginning in obscurity. 
No one seems to remember the exact date on which our Class entered Millsaps College as 
First Preps, but tradition fixes the latter part of September, in the Year of Our Lord 1900, 
as the time 

Finally, after passing through all the terrors of entrance exams, the embryo Class 
settled down to work. We spent our Prep days pretty much as any other class does, and 
if anybody wants to know how that is they can come here and try it for themselves, or ask 
some of the more recent Preps about it. As for us, we are Seniors now, and do not like to 
discuss Preps nor Preppish ways. They are such light-headed creatures and so noisy and 
undignified ! We were a model Class, made good grades, knew that the Seniors were the 
greatest people on the earth, and had a good time generally. 

The Catalog says we all studied Geometry and Algebra and Latin and sorne of us 
studied Greek. Perhaps so; I never like to dispute such things, and it doesn't make any 
difference now, anyway. 

To show the rest of the school that we were a Class of real importance and dignity, 
we decided to hold a class election in our second year. L. E. Price was elected President ; 
R. E Turner, Vice-President; and L. J. Spence, Secretary and Treasurer. We deserve 
great credit for being the first Preparatory Class to have a class election, for all the Prep 
Classes since then have followed our example. 

At Commencement, the Faculty told us to put aside our Prep books, and we became 
Freshmen. Two coeds and a lot of new boys joined us when school opened in the fall of 
1902. I want to say right here that I hope we were not as silly as the Freshmen Classes 
have been since then — and I don't believe we were, either, for we have always been an 
exceptionally fine Class. Finally, we got settled down to business, and everything went 
along smoothly enough until an election for class officers was called. Then the "non- 
frat" men combined against the "frat" men, and at a caucus held by them the night before 
the election it was decided to support O. C. Luper for President. A"non-frat" ticket was- 
prepared, and it was carried in the election next day. But the victory was short-lived, for 
the "frats" afterwards initiated nearly all those who had been placed in office by the 
others. Now, it was real clever in us to get up real politics in a class election. 

In the cla s-room we made fewer "busts" and more "tens" than any other Freshman 
Class, and not one of our number failed in Bible. Of course, some members of our Class 
rode "jacks" in Greek and Latin, but as they always managed to keep that fact concealed 
from the Faculty, it didn't matter much. Besides, who doesn't ride when they can and 
walking is tiresome? 

r8 



Many class historians like to relate how their clasies, as Freshmen, were hazed by the 
Sophs, and how, as Sophomores, they compelled the Freshies to walk in certain "strait 
and narrow paths." But we were too numerous for the Sophomores to interfere with, and 
when we became Sophomores ourselves, we decided it would be inhuman and beneath our 
dignity to haze green and defenseless Freshmen. 

We began our Sophomore \'ear by electing C. A. Bowen Pres'dent, and during the 
year we did many clever things that added to our laurels. We wrote some excellent 
stories that were published in the Collcnian, and at Commencement we would have greatly 
benefited suffering humanity, but unfortunately the good seed sown by us, "fell upon 
stony ground." We somehow managed to pass out of "Trig" and "Analyt," and at 
Commencement we called ourselves Juniors, though many still persisted in calling us 
Sophs. 

However, at the next opening everj'one, except the new men, recognized us as Juniors, 
and of course they could not be expected to locate us at first. Why, one of them even 
•mistook a member of the Faculty for a Freshman ! 

We began our good work as Juniors by electing our coed. Miss France.; Park, President. 
We continued it by "swearing off" on "jacking," and being the first to adopt the Honor 
System. As usual, many of our names appeared on the distinction list at Commencement, 
and we assumed the dignity of Sen-'ors. 

I regret that I canno, write of our doings as Seniors. Space will not permit me to tell 
of everything we have done, and it is as yet too soon to determine what have been our 
greatest dasds. There are onlv ten of us, but what we lack in numbers we make up in 
dignity and importance. Each member of the Class is a genius in his own line of business. 

1 could go on and tell of the great things that \\ill be accompHshed by the members 
of the great Class of 1906, but that belongs rather to the Class Prophet than lo the His- 
torian Besides, it will not be necessary, for the great daily papers will keep the public 
informed of our deeds as we perform them and future historians will delight to write of 
them .

The night preceding our graduating day was clear and bright. The moon was full, 
shedd'ng its sioft rays with unusual splendor upon the Prep and Senior alike. But we, of 
all people, were in the mood to most fully appreciate its grandeur and magnificence. 
Thus, while contemplating the glory of the moon and attributing its brightness to the hope 
and ^oy of receiving my degree on the morrow, I fell asleep and dreamed o he uture of 
each member of the Class. 

As though by magic, a lonely covmtry road springs out before me, and I ^ee a tramp, 
plodding his weary way along it. The expression on his face is that of one engrossed in 
great mental labor, of one deep in thought. He comes to a clean place in the road, and, 
picking up a stick, begins to make strange characters and igures in the earth. A farmer 
comes up and stands amazed, while the tramp mathematician tries to explain to him his 
newly-discovered theory of the Quadratic Equation that will mak the most difficult prob- 
lems merely a short mental process. "Some harmless, demented professor of mathemat- 
ics," murmurs the farmer, and then, when the tramp has passed on, he reads a name 
scrawled at the bottom. I shudder as he recoils in horror and excla'ms: "Is it possible 
that this is Joe Baker, of the Class of 1906? Where a^e his ambitions, his hopes, his mag- 
nificent prospects?" 

The ?cene changes, and I see Hugh Brister just entering upon his life-work, with great 
prospects and opportunities before him. I see him when a few years later, happy and 
prosperous, and enjoying the full blessings of a married life, his face is still full, and his 
eyes have not lost their youthful gleam. Again I see him, but what a change! His cheeks 
are sunken and colorless, and his hair is streaked with gray. Old age and sorrow and dis- 
appointment have worked havoc with my old classmate. His step is weak and uncert in, 
and his voice sharp and querulous. A ripe old age has he reached, but what has he at- 
tained? I see him as he reviews the past ; his lost opportunities present themselves one by 
one, and he weeps to think of what might have been. 

Bob Carr, sitting in a small furniture store, is next presented to my view. A customer 
enters, and Bob rises to wait on him, the prospects of a sale overcoming his desire to remain 
seated. But his prices are too high, and the customer withdraws. Theie is no marked 
change a few years later. The store and business are about the same. Bob is seriously 
debating the subject of matrimony, but is unable to decide whether it is a good investment. 
In the decline of life, however, fortune smiles lightly on him, and he is more prosperous. 
Finally, old age comes on, but he is still substantially the same, except that he is married. 
When asked why he waited so long before marrying, he answers that he waited until he 
was able — Bob, from beginning to end; no change in him. 

With pleasure, I observe Jim Heidelberg, still a sport and ladies' man. He reckons 

30 



not of time nor of age, but takes life easy. Cares and disappointments weigh not heavily 
on him— only disappointments in love afifect him, and these are of short duration. At last 
he is married, and it is a shame that he leaves so many broken-hearted girls to spend their 
lives in grief and retirement. Again I see him, full of hope and expectancy, but with little 
else. His serenity and easy temper are still unruflBed. 

I dream of foreign lands, and see Ed Lews teaching and working in the mission-fields 
of China. He is settled there, and has taken unto himself a wife. Ed is to be commended 
for his self-sacrifice ; but why should he tire his audience with such long and intricate dis- 
courses? I would suggest to him to state next time he places his order for sermons that 
shorter ones would be preferred. 

In a small piney-woods village I see McGilvray. He is a circxiit-rider, and preaches 
two sermons every Sunday. He is old in the service, and well contented with his lot. 
Mac still corresponds with the girls, though he is past sixty, and his scanty hair is getting 
gray. He once thought he would be made Bishop, but all hopes of that kind have now 
vanished, and he satisfies himself with visiting his congregations. 1 did not expect to find 
Mac a bachelor so late in life, but I honor him for his decision . 

Who should be the next to appear if not "Porte" Mohler? He has attained his ideal, 
and is perfectly contented to be called "Professor." Teaching in a country school, he be- 
wilders his pupils with his extensive knowledge and the continual use of long and complex 
words. He is married, thank heaven, and can no longer persecute the girls with his un- 
tiring attentions, nor weary his friends with his aflFairs. At last he has found a companion 
in whom he can confide ! 

Well, I am not surprised to see Neill! The wonder is I did not see him sooner. He 
is as friendly as ever, and his hearty handshake makes my heart warm. He is a lavvyer 
and has the good luck to win one case out of every ten. But Lambert is not disheartened 
in the least, for he was as successful in everything he undertook at school, and he continually 
has several things on hand at the same time . But Neill will win where brass is the essential 
requirement. He has already won his "first case," but it was the longest and hardest of 
all. I can sympathise with her, poor lady, if she has to listen to and obey him as we are 
told wives should. 

Again the scene is changed, and this time it is Miss Park I see. She is teaching a 
backwoods school, and she is happy in imparting knowledge to her little charges and 
never tires of their questions. Her pupils have learned the "first lesson," and it is not 
strange to say that others have also learned it. Indeed, she is soon to reap a better re- 
ward, and it is the noblest place a woman can fill. In the companionship of a worthy in- 
dividual she will fight the battles of life and live to enjoy the blessings of a ripe old age. 

The last of my classmates now passes before me. I see a large sign nailed on the door 
of a room and on it is printed: "L. E. Price, Civil and Electrical Engineer." Away off 
across the fields, I see him as he wearily draws the surveyor's chain after him, or sights 
through the compass. He was full of hope and ambition when he received his degree, but 
ambition has fled, and only a spark of hope now remains. He has faced the problems of 
life alone, and his race is almost run. I am disappointed in him. 

Ah! Is it possible that none of our Class wll win distinction? Prophet.

JUNIOR CLASS. 



HISTORY OF '07. 



Inasmuch as the histories of all the great organizations are now in demand, it ha 
fallen upon me to write a historj- of the Junior Class. This history, a,lthough it might 
occupy volumes, shall only contain the principal facts in our college career up to this time. 

It was on a beautiful morning in September that our members arrived on the campus 
and appeared at the President's office to receive our doom and to work. Our members 
not only came from Mississippi and the adjoining States, but one of our Class hailed from 
Punta Gorda, Central America. Anyone who might have seen us sauntering around 
could have very easily recognized that we were Freshmen. The v.ery sight of a Senior 
made us fear, for we thought they were some strange creatures, but we have found out, 
ere this, that they were only a farce. 

The Class, after quite a while, met in a class-meeting. Regular officers were elected, 
colors chosen, etc. From then we began to feel that we were more than a mere figurehead 
in the College. In the beginning of our Freshman year we were all very loyal to all organi- 
zations into which we happened to get. But later in the year we learned to "cut," as it is 
commonly called: but, nevertheless, our first year was a prosperous one. Many are the 
nights we have spent until midnight in hard work in Solid Geometry and Cicero, which 
impressed upon our professors the greatness of our intellects. The examinations came, 
and, of course, most of us passed. 

When we returned to the dear old College as Sophomores we were quite a different 
crowd from the one that had entered just one year before. We were not so much afraid 
of Seniors — in fact, we felt as large as any other class in school. We looked, as is the 
custom, with contempt upon the Freshmen, forgetting that just one year before we were 
Freshmen, too. The same loyalty was still possessed by all. Early in; .the year football 
and baseball teams were organized, and of course the Sophs reaped tlieir share of the 
honors. Our mental activity caused us always to take the lead, and we found nothing that 
would forestall the overflowings of our effervescent craniums — in fact, this was so great 
that some members of our Class accepted positions of honor and trust, and are now up- 
holding the dignity of our College by their superiority of discipline and method. As a re- 
sult of this, the next year found us fewer in number. 

As Juniors, we met with new difficulties, but as we had attained so much wisdom in 
our former years, we were able to meet them face to face and conquer them. The Class 
was regularly organized, officers elected, and colors chosen. We chose as President our 
jolliest and most enthusiastic. 

The Junior Class is a Class that contains more knowledge and less conceit, and more 
"genii" and less sports, than any other class in college. In our laboratory work, up ta 

36 



this time, wonderful results have been accomplished — one of our members even came very 
near killing our Professor in the laboratory one day. But it has demanded great effort 
to comply with the requirements of our instructor of this department, for not even Juniors, 
with all their zeal and enthusiasm, can, without reluctance, deny themselves the sweetness 
of slumber just before noon in the long drowsy days, just for the sake of getting more 
Chemistry. 

But the results, of these achievements are brought out very clearly by the skilfulness 
with which we deal with the sines and cosines in Calculus. Indeed, the intellectual power 
shown by this Class is so great that it enforces the admiration of our Professor, and no 
wonder he marvels at its greatness (?). 

In our endeavors to gain knowledge, we have not neglected the study of oratory. 
The Faculty, on February 7th, chose one of our members to represent the College in the 
State Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Contest, which is the highest honor the College can give. 
This is the second time in the history of the College that this has occurred. On this same 
day our boys spoke with so much eloquence that the Seniors felt inclined to withdraw 
to the rear. 

As Juniors, we are glad to say that we have entered into everything with peace and 
hannony, and as summer is near at hand, we will soon lay aside our books for a while, and 
our experiences as Juniors will remain only as memories of a happy and prosperous year 
among pleasant companions. When we gather again in the beautiful autumn days, may 
not one of us be lacking, but may every member return with renewed determination. 
And may we, as Seniors, never be found idle, but pressing always forward to the mark of 
the high calling as it is in Seniordom.

SOPHOMORE CLASS. 



HISTORY OF '05. 



The Class of '08 suddenly burst forth upon the college world at Millsaps in the fall of 
1904. With bewilderment written on every feature, we cautiously inquired for the 
' 'Perfessers." This feeling of lonesomeness and smallness remained urtil the Y. M. C. A. 
reception, which we attended with a vague feeling of suspicion and fear, but from which 
we returned in high glee. We had found that which we most desired ; we did not stand as 
far down in the college world as we supposed — there were "Preps." We gained new life. 
We were looking down upon as well as being looked down upon — in fact, we became so 
popular that Sophomores began to join our ranks. Class caps were ordered, and when 
they arrived the old saying that "the same thing cannot become every one," was never 
put to a better test. Nevertheless, class-spirit was greater than personal vanity, and they 
were worn. 

While activities in the literary phase of college life were being upheld, we were not 
neglecting athletics. Some made themselves conspicuous on the tennis court ; some were 
inclined toward baseball; others formed a football team, which overwhelmed the "Prep" 
team bv the decisive score of o to o. As for basketball, the entire squad consisted of 
Freshmen. A few who preferred equestrian sports turned to the more refined diversion of 
pony-riding, in which art they acquired great skill ; but as the Athletic Association does 
not offer horse-racing as one of the athletic sports, we were unable to pit them against 
the class of '07, of whom, in such a contest, we felt a secret fear. 

Our Freshman year was brought to a grand cl'max at Commencement, when our rep- 
resentatives on the program pealed forth the great speeches of all times. One committed 
a vile murder, and, sliding down the banisters, escaped, to the amazement of his audience. 
Another faced death before an angry throng of bloodthirsty Carthagenians and hissed his 
contempt in their faces ; while others, for the one hundred and first time, broke the admo- 
nition, "Let the dead bury their dead," and resurrected great men of the past and dwelt 
upon their illustrious lives with such eloquence that the audience was almost convinced 
that all good was a thing of the past. 

When we returned this session, much feyver in number, the scholastic session had been 
shortened two months, so we were compelled to get hard at it. Nevertheless, we have 
taken iust as much :'nterest in our college life as we did in our Freshman year. Ccmmence- 
ment speeches are now being prepared, and' we are looking forward to the time when the 
stop-cocks will be pulled and Sophomoric gas wilhstream fpr h as it never streamed before. 

This mall fragment of history I leave to be c^dmpleted by the youth of future genera- 
tion", when audiences will again sit spell-bound, listening to young orators as they dwell 
on the noble virtues of the men that graduated from Millsaps College in the year 1908.

FRESHMAN CLASS. 




FRESHMAN CLASS. 



CLASS OF 190?. 



We are the official Class of 1909, but the Seniors have termed us "I'ish," and green 
fish at that, but as we have only a short time to spend we will not "kick" now. Our time 
swimming in the streams amid green fields is almost over. It has been happy and short. 

We have steered clear of all hazing catastrophes, and had not one of our number 
spent the night in the swamp of the "Mighty Pearl" following a flock of snipe, we could 
count ourselves exceedingly lucky indeed. 

In athletics we hold a high average. On the diamond, in the ' 'gym," and on the grid- 
iron, the face of the Freshman can be seen swimming in every direction. The Class of 
1909 contributes more to athletics than almost all of the other classes combined. 

Our marks in life are high, for "we have hitched our wagon to a star," and ".eal 
work" is the motto of each one of us, just before exams 

Of Calico, we have a plenty. If we are not credited with leading in anything else, we 
certainly do in this instance, for five coeds help to make the Class the best. Everyone of 
them is a good "giggler, ' and at times they sound as if a wagon load of tin was turned 
loose in the library. 

We acknowledge we have a home-sick feeling now, as check-time is almost over, for 
the familiar old halls and faces we are about to leave. We all hope to return, and it is 
without egotism that we predict the Class of 1909 will be the best Class :n the histor}- of 
the College.

INDIVIDUALITY. 



There is ofttimes a solitude that finds us 

When we are jostled by the hurrying crowd, 

Deeper than all the mystery that surrounds, 
Amid the desert circled only by the cloud. 

And yet, always there is within our life, 

Some soul for which we part the veil that hides 

Our spirit from the coldness and the strife 

Of all the thoughtless throng that scoffs and clii ] ■ 

Like Adam seeking midst his bow'rs for Eve, 
The soul still seeks its other answering half; 

Till by a spirit hand-clasp, it perceives 
Its Heaven-created mate, its other self. 

And this is Friendship, yes, but ah, think not 

That other soul can feel thy every sorrow, 
Or share thy every joy; thy inmost thought 

Remainest thine beyond each sad tomorrow. 

And thou shalt strive b}' word and deed and louk 

And mute entreaty all, to understand 
That other; but the scaled book 

Will not unclasp its tale to tender hands. 

And thou wilt weep for sorrow ; deeper this 

Than all the solitude of street or strand, 
Or house by spirit haunted; ah, the bliss 

We lose because we can not understand . 

Yet, 'tis thy lot, let not thy soul complain; 

No comrades yet have walked the earth together. 
But at the verge of some expansive plain. 

Their souls have wept and said good-bye forever. 

The hand that formed thee made no other self 
Thy image ; thou must walk some paths alone ; 

Some of thy Friend's heart-feelings thou canst never guess 
Till thou at last dost know as thou art known.

A BACKWOODS IDYL, 



Jim Hobbs was by birth a backwoods man. He bragged over the fact that he had 
spent forty-four years of his life without hearing the toot of a raikoad engine, and ' ' 'lowed 
his young uns could do the same." He had a son and a daughter. Sallie, the daughter, 
was housekeeper, cook, and milkmaid. "Red," his son, was determined to be a greater 
man than his father, though he had several more years to spend under the parental roof 
before he was a man of his own. Backwoods customs make a boy belong to his father until 
he reaches the age of twenty-one, when he is "turned a-loose" with much ceremony. So 
Red, in the spring, was still his father's "nigger," and, in the hunting season, his dog. 

Red, as he was called from his flaming locks, was ugly and was aware of the fact, for 
he was famous for once having said he ' ' could grin hard and ugly enough to skin the bark 
off 'n any hickory tree in the swamp." 

One Saturday morning, just before day, Red heard the old man calling him. It did 
not suit his convenience to get up so early, but he knew there was nothing else for him to 
do, and soon responded in person. He knew what was up, so he left off his shoes. 

At the gate stood Mr. Hobbs, with a long double barreled shot-gun across his shoulder 
"that could scorch 'em in the highest timbers." 

"We '11 go down by the ros'near patch 'fore we go to de swamp en see if de is any hogs 
in de co'n," said the old man to Red. 

Red moved leisurely along. He did not feel in the least like hunting to-day, as he was 
sleepy, and it seemed as if he had just gotten to bed before the old man had called him. 

There were no hogs in the field, so they went deeper into the swamp. They had 
bagged several squirrels, when Red thought he spied one on a large hickory tree near by. 
His father would never allow him to carry a gun, as he was too good a substitute for a dog, 
and he was afraid Red would learn to beat him shooting, so Red had to content himself 
with "turning" the squirrels for his father. 

"Shake that vine a long time now!" scolded his father, and Red shook with all his 
might. 

"Wait ; I see 'im," whispered his father between the sights of his trusty old gun. 

Bang! No squirrel fell. Bang! went the other barrel, and still no squirrel fell. 

Red was laughing silently to himself, and began to think if something serious didn't 
happen soon, he would "bust." The old man squinted one eye and reloaded his gun, 
keeping the other on the spot on the tree that seemed to be creeping slowly up towards a 
Tiiot-hole. As he placed the cap on the tube, an idea struck him. 

62 



"Red, come here," he said, and Red came up to his father, looking h'm straight in the 
eyes and as solemn as a country judge, though bursting with inward laughter. 

"What you want. Pap." he said. 

"I wanter know what that thing is I can't hit," said the old man. 

Then Red roared and said : "Don't you know a piece of bark when you see it?" 

' ' But look — it moves ! ' yelled his father, cocking his old gun. 

Red looked at his father seriously, and, reaching up with a long, lean, lanky finger, 
picked a tick off his father's eyelid. 

"Dar 's yo' squir'l. Pap," he said. 

Sport was good, and for several hours they continued their tramp before returning 
home. Finally, the old man stopped, and, searching between the tops of the trees for the 
sun, said ; "Hit 's near onto dinner time, and I reckon Sal 's got grub fixed by this time." 

"My stomach thinks my throat 's cut," replied Red, cheering up somewhat. 

When they reached home, however, they found the usually domestic Sallie enjoying a 
"day off" — her beau, Sam Trotter, had come. She had not thought of dinner. Now, 
seeing her father and brother, she hastened to kindle a fire in the stove and move around 
with such briskness that spoke well for Sam's future comfort. 

Complying with backwoods customs and habits, Sal's lover assisted in prepiaring the 
squirrels, and in a surprisingly short time they sat down to a smoking meal. 

New, Sam was aware of the fact that he did not stand very high in his future father-in- 
law's good graces. Hobbs had been known to say that Sam read more than he worked. 
Sam desired to show him that this was the proper course, and, in a pause in the conversa- 
tion about crops, sought to inject an intellectual turn to affairs. 

"Miss Sal, what do you think the world has been ben'fited by the life of Nap'-o-le-on 
Bo nap'-o-te?" 

Sallie and Hobbs knew too little history to be upset by his inquiry, but Red, like Sam, 
read on the sly, and went under the table with a roar of laughter. 

Sam, seeing he was not successful in his historical sortie, got very red, and said : 

"Pass me the sop. Miss Sal, please, mum." 

Sam, as a visitor, proved to be a stayer. He had come from across the river, and was 
soon easily persuaded by Sallie to remain over night. He and Sal had a blissful evening 
together, and at night they sat down to cold victuals, as Sallie had again forgotten her 
duties. 

Country bed-time comes early, and Red was a hard worker and resented having to sit 
up and show the visitor to the loft bed-room, directly over the front porch, as politeness 
required. 

Moonshine, calico, arms, sentiment, plans, and proposals were getting pretty well 
mixed up, when Red stuck his head through a hole in the ceiling and said : 

"Nap, see this ladder? When you get through sparking Sal, fly up to roost."

HISTORY OF GALLOWAY LITERARY SOCIETY. 




BISHOP CHAS. B. GALLOWAY. 



The Galloway Literary Society was organized in 1892. 
just after the opening of the first session of Millsaps Col- 
lege with H, S. Stevens as president. It was named in 
honor of Bishop Charles B. Galloway, the honored Presi- 
dent of the Board of Trustees. 

The Society is purely literary in its nature, and its 
object, as stated in the preamble of the constitution, is to 
improve its members by giving them an "opportunity to 
become skilled in Parliamentary Practice, to acquire grace 
and ease in public speaking, to gain that composure that 
will enable them to think readilv on their feet, to subject 
themselves to judicious criticism, and to procure all the 
advantages that come from clash of mind with mind in 
debate and oratory." 

The society holds its meetings every Fridav evening 
at eight o'clock, and a regular program of two weeks standing is carried out, in ad- 
dition to any business that may come up. This program consists of a declamation, an 
oration, and a "regular" and "irregular" debate. In order to keep up society spirit and 
to show to the publ'c something of the work done by its members, the Galloway Socie- 
ty engages in two public debates every session with its sister society, the Lamar. The 
first of these, known as the Mid-Session D;bate, is held just before or just after the 
Christmas holidays, while the other, known as the Commencement Debate, is held dur- 
ing Commencement. In this debate the speaker who shows the greater skill in hand- 
ling his subject is awarded a gold medal. The Galloway Society has an enviable record 
for winning debates, and her representatives have also won their share of medals. 

During the early part of each spring the Galloway Society holds a public celebra- 
tion of its anniversary. On these occasions two members of the society — one as Orator 
and the other as Anniversarian — deliver orations and some prominent man delivers an 
address to the society and its friends. The following men have been elected to serve 
as Anniversarians: J. A. Moore, 1893; T. W. Browning, 1895; T. M. Dye, 1896; W. B. 
Jones, 1897; H. B Locke, 1898; W. E. M. Brogran, 1899; J. T. McCafferty, 1900; W. L. 
Duren, 1901 ; J. R. Countiss, 1902; W. F. Cook, 1903; L. P. Wasson, 1904; A. P. Hand, 
1905; L. E. Price, 1906. 



70 



Six members of the Galloway Society have represented the college in the Mississippi 
Intercollegiate Oratorical Association, and four of these, J. B. Mitchell, W. L. Duren, 
J. R. Countiss, and W. F. Cook, won medals. The former two distinguished themselves 
still further by winning medals in the Southern Interstate Oratorical Association con- 
tests held at Mont Eagle, Tenn. 

In May, 1901, representatives from the Galloway and Lamar Societies successfully 
engaged in a debate with representatives from the literary societies of Centenary College. 
Mr. B. E. Eaton represented the Galloway Society, and he was awarded the medal given 
for excellence in debate. 

On the Collegian Staff Galloway men have always been conspicuous, and seven of the 
eight editors-in-chief have been Galloway men. The following members of the present 
Collegian Staff are Galloways: J. A. Baker, Editor-in-Chief; E. C. McGilvary, Alumni 
Editor; L. E. Price, Business Manager; J. L. Neill and J C. Rousseaux, Assistant Buai- 
ness Managers. Former Editors-in-Chief have been, E. H. Galloway, 1899-1900; B. E. 
Eaton, 1900-01; W. L. Duren, 1901-02; W.F.Cook, 1902-03; J. H. Penix, 1903-04; A. P. 
Hand, 1904-05. Last year the Editor-in-Chief of Bobashela, A. P. Hand, was selected 
from the Galloway Society, as were also the Editor and Business Manager for the 
present session. 

For several years the Presidents of the Y. M. C. A. have been Galloway men, and 
Galloway men have always won the Clarke Essay Medal. 

A Galloway man, J. L. Neill, represents the college this j'ear at the Mississippi Chau- 
tauqua, and another, R. E. Jackson, represents the Law Department in the Gulf States 
Chautauqua. 

At commencement in June the society will be well represented in every feature. 
Seven members will contest for the Millsaps Medal, four for the Andrews Medal, and fottr 
for the Seutter Medal. Besides these there will be several Galloway men in the various 
other contests, and we are expecting om- full share of the honors. 

If the past is in any way an indication of the future we may expect great things 
from the Galloway Society in the years to come, for it has certainly had a glorious past. 
Many of the most prominent men who have gone out from the college have been metat- 
bers of our society, and we believe that the men who are coming in now will continue to 
maintain the high standard that has been set for them.

THE LAMAR LITERARY SOCIETY. 




JUSTICE L. Q.C.LAMAR. 



On the 13th of October, 1892, there was a jiint meeting 
of Galloway and Lamar Literary Societies, in which they agreed 
upon a set of resolutions pertaining to the mutual relations 
of the two societies. On the 15th of October, 1892, the Lamar 
Society held its first regular meeting, adopted its Constitution, 
and elected its first set of officers. Mr. T. W. HoUoman was 
elected President. During the following week the hall was 
furnished with chairs, tables, desks, and lights. At the next 
meeting this society began its work in earnest. 

This society was organized for the purpose of furnishing a 
means whereby every man who comes to iMillsaps College 
might have the opportunity of familiarizing himself with the 
action of deliberative bodies and of acquiring ease and grace in 
public speaking. 

The Society was named Lamar for the distinguished statesman, orator, and jurist, 
L. Q. C. Lamar. The very appropriate Latin phrase, "iWnlla palma sine lahorc" ("No reward 
without labor") was chosen as its motto. 

This society elects four Presidents during each school year. It holds its regular 
meetings every Friday night. At these meetings all the important questions which agitate 
the public mind, both social and political, are discussed. There are eight men on the reg- 
ular programme — six "debaters," an "orator," and a "declaimer." 

There are among the honorary members of this society. Dr. and Mrs. W. B. Murrah, 
Prof, and Mrs. M. W. Swartz, and the "coeds." 

The great occasion of the year — to which everyone looks forward with a considerable 
degree of interest and enthusiasm — is the anniversary of the Society, which is held some- 
time during the month of April. For this occasion there are elected by the Society two 
representatives, an anniversarian and an orator, and there is also elected an outside 
speaker, who must be a Mississippian. Another very interesting occasion of the j'ear is 
when two representatives of the rival societies lock horns in what is known at Millsaps 
College as the "Inter-Society Debate." Although there is great interest and excitement 
around among the student-body over these two occasions of the year, these fade into in- 
significance as Commencement approaches — the time for the great joint debate between 
the two societies of the College. Each society elects two representatives at the first of the 
year, who gather momentum until the mighty contest at Commencement. This contest 
is exciting, not only because of the interest the members of each society have for the victory, 



74 



but also because there is awarded to the best speaker a gold medal. The one who wins 
the medal in one of these contests feels a great triumph, but he has also other feelings 
which are physical in their nature — the effect of being bumped and tossed by the members 
of the victorious society. The members of the other society sneak 'quietly to their rooms 
and console themselves by accusing the judges of having been partial in their decision. 

The founding of this society may well be compared with what Virgil said concerning 
the founding of the Roman nation, "Tantae molis erat Romanam condere gentem !" What 
a great task it was to found the Lamar Society ! This society had a very humble begin- 
ning — a membership of only twenty-two at its birth, but it has now grown until it has 
forty-eight active members. It began with a debt of over one hundred dollars, but it now 
has its hall well furnished, is out of debt, and has money in the treasury. 

This society, ever since its organization, has been one of the greatest educational 
factors connected with Millsaps College. It has furnished its share of medal- winners, and 
always has in its membership some of the leading men in the College. J. W. Canada, one 
of the men who won the Inter-Collegiate Medal, was a member of the Lamar Society. This 
society does not fail to accomplish the purpose for which it was instituted. It is now 
thirteen years old — an unlucky age, although it furnished the man that went to the State 
Oratorical Contest this year. This society is now moving along very nicely, with no 
visible perils overhanging it, but indications of a prosperous future before it. It can never 
be anything but a great factor in Millsaps College so long as it lives up to its motto and 
takes L. Q. C. Lamar as its type of ideal manhood.

MISSISSIPPI INTER-COLLEGIATE ORATORICAL 
ASSOCIATION. 



The Mississippi Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Association was organized at Crystal 
Springs, Miss., in the summer of 1896. The Mississippi Chautauqua Assembly had in- 
vited the male colleges of the State to send speakers there to represent them in an oratorical 
contest, and it is to these representatives that the Association owes its founding. Millsaps 
college was represented in that first contest by J. W. Canada and R. L- Cannon. The 
colleges represented in the Association are the University of Mississippi, A. & M. College, 
Mississippi College, and Millsaps College. 

The objects of the M. I. O. A., as stated in the preamble of its constitution, are to 
form closer bonds of friendship between the leading colleges of the State, to encourage and 
promote the study and cultivation of oratory, and to meet in annual contests to determine 
the progress that is being made toward that end. 

The Association has had a vigorous life of eleven years, and its history compares fa- 
vorably with that of any similar association of the country. Two of its members have won 
the Southern Inter-State Medal at Mont Eagle, Tenn., and many of its alumni are already 
taking high rank in the affairs of Church and State, and their progress is being eagerly 
watched by the public. If their future is to be prophesied from their past successes, it 
must be bright indeed. 

The records of the Association show that the first contest was held at Crystal Springs 
in 1896, and that J. W. Canada, of Millsaps College, was awarded the medal. The second 
contest was held at Meridian in 1897, and Maurice G. Fulton, from the University, was pre- 
sented with the prize. The records for the years 1898 and 1899 have not been kept, but 
information from other sources shows that the third contest was held in the Millsaps Col- 
lege chapel and was won by a representative of the University, and the fourth, held at 
Natchez in 1899, was won by a representative of Mississippi College. The fifth contest was 
held at Vicksburg in 1900, and a Millsaps representative, J. B. Mitchell, was declared 
winner. Meridian was the scene of the sixth contest in 1901, and again a Millsaps man, 
W. L. Duren, won. This entitled Mr. Duren to represent the State in the Southern Inter- 
State Oratorical Contest at Mont Eagle, Tenn, and again he was victorious. This medal 
had been won the year before for Mississippi by J. B. Mitchell. J. R. Countiss, of Millsaps, 
won the medal in the seventh contest held at Columbus in 1902. At Natchez, in 1903, 
W. F. Cook, of Millsaps, was winner in the eighth contest. History repeated itself at Hat- 
tiesburg next year, when C. A. Alexander won the ninth contest for Millsaps. The tenth 
contest was held at Brookhaven in 1905, and resulted in victory for Edgar Godbold, of 
Mississippi College, with M. S. Pittman, of Millsaps, a close second. The eleventh contest 
was held at Kosciusko May 11, 1906, and E. Webster, of the University, won first "prize, 
and W. A. Williams, of Millsaps, won second.

TWINKLE, TWINKLE, LITTLE STAR. 



(The Seniors' Version.) 

Twinkle, twinkle little star, how I wonder what you are: 
Asteroid or Pleides, satellite or Hercules. 
How much trouble it exacts ! — always changing parallax ; 
Pushing round the apsides, backing Taurus in Aries. 
Could we keep you in your path, gladly would we study math ; 
But the more we work with you, the more labors you must do. 
When on Tuesday Sol is set, air is cold and ground is wet, 
Then you twinkle in high glee, laughing at our misery. 
As we Seniors hunt in vain Saturn's ring or Tycho's plain; 
Seniors, thank the unknown star that has kept away so far. 
Telescope has never shown and math writers never known ; 
Thank the pole that is so high it occults the southern sky, 
And the moon so good to hide mountains on the other side.

ATHLETICS. 



The athletic interest of the College first centered around the gridiron and its heroes. 
Of last year's team, only McGilvray, Davis, and Terrell returned, but around these, as a 
nucleus, was gathered an eleven which won credit for themselves and the College by de- 
feating the Jackson Athletic Club by the score of 6 — 5. For a detailed account of the 
game, see the December Collegian. 

The team of '05 was, in a certain sense, the reverse of that of '04 — that is, the strong 
points of last year's team were the weak points this year, and -vice versa. The line was ap- 
preciably lighter than in 1904, and only in individual instances displayed the aggressive- 
ness that characterized the former rush-line. On the other hand, the backfield was much 
more effective than that of last year. Not only were the backs experienced football men, 
but they had the advantage of longer training, the formations were more intricate, and the 
interference moved off with a snap and dash that was never attained by the earlier team. 
The scores do not afford a safe basis for comparison, since Jackson was considerably 
stronger than before and since their touchdown was made upon a fumble. When all has 
been said, it yet remains that a game between the team of '05 and their predecessors would 
prove a most interesting contest — a contest of a good offense ('05) as opposed by a good 
defense ('04). And if it be true, as Mr. Yost says, that "a team's best defense is a good 
offense," then we must allow the odds to be in favor of the latter team. 

Much credit is due the members of the team, not only for the excellent quality of 
football that they played, but also for their faithfulness in practicing through a long period 
of delays and with little support from the student-body, as is shown by a total lack of a 
"scrub" team, against which to practice. Their coach takes this opportunity of thanking 
them for their appreciation of his efforts, as shown both by their perseverence in practice 
in the face of such odds, and by the more definite form of the very comfortable chair from 
which he is now writing his thanks. 

Along other lines of athletic activity there have been several minor improvements. 
The Athletic Association, by the adoption of a constitution and by-laws, took a step to- 
ward more regularity in its working, the good effects of which may be seen in the number 
of football suits now in the hands of the management. The tennis courts have been put 
upon a solid foundation, both literally and figuratively, by giving them a basis of pyrites, 
upon which a layer of sand and clay has been placed. Though these improvements hin- 
dered the progress of the game during the first term, the courts have, since then, been as 
popular as ever. 

The outdoor basketball court has been provided with new poles, and the court in the 
gymnasium has been fitted out with new platforms and baskets. The interest in the sport 

• 102 



has been erratic— now lively, now dormant. Attempts were made to play the game in a 
regular fashion, but proved of no avail. A similar irregtilarity has been apparent in the 
attendance upon the gymnasium classes, which have been under the leadership of Prof- 
Kern. The equipment received additions in the shape of a medicine ball, boxing-gloves, 
and a set of wands, and many interior improvements were also added. 

An unusual interest has been shown in the national game, and during the spring days 
baseball has contested with "thoughts of love" for the first place in the college boy's 
fancy. The enthusiasm of Captain Cooper and Manager Murrah proved to be contagious 
to a degree that would have amply satisfied the most blood-thirsty stegomyia fasciata, and, 
as a result, new suits have been procured for the team and a new diamond laid off and 
leveled, upon which there have been games galore. The Linfield House, struggling val- 
iantly to obtain the coveted reward of "ham and eggs," or the "shacks" battHng manfully 
to maintain the supremacy of "grease and grits," are subjects worthy of the brush of a 
master. At present the only lien that they have upon immortality is due. to Official 
Photographer Huddleston's trusty kodak (cf., p. 65). 

By way of conclusion, a word of praise should be given to Managers Neill, Gieger, and 
Murrah. They have all proved themselves to be enthusiastic, faithful, and efficient man- 
agers of their several departments, and much of the athletic interest and success of the 
present year is directly due to them. May the future teams be as fortunate !

AMOR AUTUMNUS. 



'Twas through a wooded, flowered vale, 
Where leaves of autumn scattered lie; 

Or, tossing, frolic with the gale. 
We idly strolled, my love and I. 

Her cheeks were rosy as the west, 
Her eyes were bluer than the sky; 

Her smile a witch's charm possessed; 
Oh, we were glad, my love and I! 

I long had loved, but ne'er could tell, 
Beyond a love-look or a sigh; 

Her simple smile would seem to spell 
"We 're only friends" — my love and I. 

But on this golden autumn day. 

When every zephyr whispered, "Try!" 
Resolved I was to quit delay — 
So while we wandered, love and I, 

In tender tones I pleaded long — 
I saw the love-light in her eye; 

Oh, Fortune fair, our lives prolong 
To bless that day, my love and I !

"No, suh! I ain't takin' nobody nowhars now 'cep'in' dey pays me fust. I ain't 
cas'in' no 'iiection on you gemmens, but I tuk an' tuk a whole kerridge full o' boys way 
out t' — whut's dat college name? — d' udder night an' didn' git nary cent f'r it. 

"Y' see, it uz dis way," continued the old cab driver when questioned by his patrons, 
"it uz atter midnight a whole passel o' boys whut got off en de two 'clock train wus 
stan'in down et de depo' an' lookin' moughty solemn-lak, when de c'nductor-man on de 
street car 'lowed, ' 'is car uz gwine t' de barn,' an' jingled 'is bell and put out. 

"Wal, dey mumbled aroun' awhile an' den one uv 'em called me an' axed whut I'd 
take 'em — eight uv 'em — out t' de college fer. I tol' 'im, an' putty soon we uz jes' a 
rollin' out dat way. 

"At fus' de boys made a right sma't o' racket, but dey kep' a gittin' kin' o'quiet-lak, 
an' by de time we got outer town it 'peared lak dey uz 'sleep. 

" 'Dem boys is been havin' a high time, I 'speck,' sez I. 'But dey ain't young but 
once't.' 

"When I stopped m' kerridge out at dat biggest boa'din' house out dar an' opened 
de do' I foun' out why dey ain't been makin' no racket! Dey wuzn 't a soul in dat ker- 
ridge! No, suh, dey wuzn't ha'r n' hide uv one o' dem boys. 

"I uz skeered at fust, 'ca'se I thought dey mought 'a' been sperits. But den I knowed 
sperits wouldn't git oflfen a train dat way; an' 'sides, dey uz too natchul-lookin' fer sperits. 
An' den I sta'ted t' let out an' make a racket an' have dem youngsters ketched up with, 
nohow. But I knowed dem boys wuzn 't fur off, an' dey uz eight o' dem an' jes' one o' 
me. So I couldn' do nothin' but cuss kin' o' low lak an' tu'n 'roun' an' come back dem 
th'ee miles . Gentermen ! but I uz mad ! 

"De nex' mo'nin' I went out t' de boa'din' house and axed de cook dar how I uz 
gwineter fin' out who dem boys wuz an' git m' money. 

" 'Fin' out who?' He looked at me kind o' sideways. 'Fin' out who? ain't no body 
gwineter ketch up wid dem boys; and ef dey ketch up wid you dey won't tu'n loose tel it 
thunders, needer. You bettuh be thankful, man, dat dey ain't cripple yo' bosses 'r 
tear up yo' kerridge.' 

"I 'lowed den dat I bettuh let dem boys 'lone an' lose de money. But I ain't 
haulin' fer nothin' no mo". Dey pays 'fo' dey goes." B. H.

The hoggonette, an instrument 
That makes the sweetest sound ; 

Its melodies as they float out 
Are heard for miles around. 

How great a charm its music is 

To those who have an ear 
For thrilling strains, both pure and sweet, 

Inspiring joy and cheer ! 

It fills the heart with ecstacy, 

And makes your burdens as a feather ; 

The soul and it blend into one, 
And soar away together. 

'T is not the kind of instrument 
You find in church or temple; 

It has no strings or complex parts. 
But is quite plain and simple. 

'T is not a thing all finely wrought, 

Obtained by wealth alone, 
But is a low-priced instrument. 

Which poor folks, too, may own. 

To tell the world how it is made 
I think it is my duty — 4 

This instrument so wonderful, 
So notable for, beauty! 

130 



Just take a piece of solid plank 
And bore some holes all in it 

With auger-bits, both large and small — 
In this way you begin it. 

Then back your hogs up to the holes, 
Through which their tails you run, 

Then knot them on the other side, 
And the hoggonette is done. 

And then the music you would have 

By pulling each one's tail 
Would cause an angel to come down, 

And imps in hell to wail. 

—F.
