I. All over the land of the cotton. 

And down where the magnolias stand, 
The fame of our dear alma mater 
Is ringing- far over the land. 

Millsaps, Millsaps, 
Millsaps College for me, for me. 

Millsaps, Millsaps, 
Millsaps College for me. 

Her halls where our memories linger, 
The friendships there made long ago. 

The purple and whit? of her banner. 
Are cherisnea wherever we go. 

3. And when in the years vi the future, 
Fond memory turns to the past, 
The days that we spent at old Millsaps, 
Will vet be the brightest at last.

"The li'orld knoK's nothing of its i;rsat<'st men." 

He walks over the campus in an air of supreme importance, 
and seems to expect all lower classmen to gxcet him as a man of 
great authority. Thinks he has the Faculty fooled. Tries to im- 
press upon all, who do not know better, that he is a great ladies' 
man. Feels that he has few equals and no superiors. Thinks him- 
self smart and good-looking. Especially fond of Mathematics and 
Latin. Oakley Scholarship Prize, 1905 ; Assistant in Latin and

"/ never felt the hiss of Io7'e. nor nuiiden's Iiand in mine." 

"Fatty." He is a man of might but not of muscle. Debating 
is his hobby, but he lacks the ability to luokl his thoughts into words. 
He has some of the characteristics of an owl, in that his head is 
his most prominent possession, and in that he stays awake at night 
and takes his naps during the day — never was there such an old 
head on such a slender body. Club Editor Bojiasiiela, 1905-06;

"Jim." Does stunts in Jackson Sucietx'. From lus mocking- 
bird month and legs one would think him a proficient musician, 
but lack of energy and indifference buried iiis talent. Always pres- 
ent when most vmdesiralilc and absent when most needed. To hear 
him talk one would think that those who escaped his incendiary 
threats would indeed be fortunate, but careful investigation reveals 
the fact that the object of his anger is nofj unsafe. His impressive 
"Let me see you a moment" always reminds spectators that nothing- 
can be made a secret. .Assistant business Manager Bi:>1!-\shela,

"Jim Hob." The brightest man in the class by name. Has a 
weakness for using big words. Tries to be -'ery dignified since he 
has become a Senior. Knows well the royil road over the uneven 
ways of the classics, makes borrowed sermons a specialty. Thinks 
he will need a work, the first year, with a parsonage on it. His 
oratory is ])leasing to himself alone. \'ice-President V. AT. C. A.,

"A-L^'kicard, ciiibarrasscd, stiff, i^'itlioiit skill 
Of moving i^niccfiilly or staiidiiii^ still." 

He is consciously dignified. Conceals under a gruff, brusque 
manner a sympathetic nature and serio-comic propensities. Favor- 
ite expression, "By Gummies!" Shy and timid when around the 
ladies. To bother others and to Inmi seems to be the height of his 
ambition. Aspires to be a college professor. He is in love but 
tries to conceal it. A diligent student, and some say he is smart. Is

"God mode him, therefore let him pass [or a man." 

"John" ; "Cap." Aspires to be a great statesrjian. Is an ideal 
business man, and has won distinction as business manager of Bo- 
BASHELA ( ?). His natural expression is a weird grin. Has gotten a 
great deal of training from his college course, but has made the 
fatal mistake of falling in love with a co-ed. Is shy and has noth- 
ing to say in a crowd of girls, yet he comes away declaring he has 
had the best time of any one. Made a very euviable record as pre- 
siding officer in his literary society ( ?). He really thinks himself an 
excellent writer. Business Manager Bobasjiela,- Associate Editor

"Jack." If sporting" is a sin. Jack is already lost. Has a pe- 
culiar affinity for the sciences, especially Chemistry. Believes in 
the brass-standard. He has almost succeeded in nnpressing the 
Faculty that Henry W. Grady was truly a .<^reat and wonderful 
man. An orator and a vocalist and never misses an opportunity to 
display his voice. He has proved to the entire satisfaction of all 
who know him that studying is not the only side there is to a col- 
lege life. Whoever told him he was good-looking basely deceived 
him. Won ;\Iillsaps Medal, 1903 ; President L. L. S., third term,

"A sclf-iiuulc iiiaii — 3'(\s-, and he ^^•orsliil's his creator." 

"Alack." "AIcKee at the College." Has been here for years, 
but the Faculty has decided to give him his degree this year, pro- 
vided he passes in Sophomore Math. He has too much religion to 
l)reach other men's sermons, hut the general impression of his au- 
diences is that religion is all tliat he possesses. Fears that his head 
will be bald ere he can procure for himself a better half. Bearing 
a sanctimonious dignity, he moves among his fellow students. He 
spends a great deal of his time talking to the girls over the tele- 
phone, and some of them say he has stickability. \ ice-President

Charles Lamar Neill Montrose. Miss. 

"Self-cnntideiiee is i^<ell. but wiieii it runs to I and I and I and 
I aL:;ai/i, it becomes a nuisance lo us all." 

"Red" is a great politician, but doesn't think anybody knows 
it. He has the bearing of a great lawyer, and if he were only given 
plenty of "weed" and a stack of law books he would do honor to 
the profession. He has been accused of being an orator, but of some 
of his speeches it cannot be ascertained whence they come nor 
whither they go. So forgetful that he sometimes forgets his own 
name. A curious mixture of common sense, laziness and good 
nature. Anniversarian G. L. S. ; President G. L. S., third term ;

cer's "short-sholdred, brood, a thikke knarre" describes him phys-

praise. Consistenc_v is a jewel with which he is not endowed : he 
aggressively condemns certain acts of his friends but does the same 
things himself without feeling a particle of indignation. He is 
quick to detect the eccentricities and weaknesses of others and 
seizes upon them with wicked joy much to tlie confusion of their 
possessors. His sarcasm is unequaled anil his unmerciful and re- 
lentless cuts have caused him to be dreaded. Won Alillsaps INIedal.

Now It came Vj pass in those days 
as the time drew near when Naughty 
Seven shculd receive the name of Sen- 
iors that the instructors of the Colleg'e 
Cjuestionecl one another sa^'ing", "Is it 
right to detain these students another 
year, seeing that as Juniors they had 
greater wisdom than aU the Seniois wh.o 
before tlieir time departed from tiiese 
walls?" ,\nd they .vere greatly per- 
plexed and sorely troubled. 

Hut Naughty Seven, when they li.'ard 
how the instructors debated among ■them- 
selves, sent word and said unto tlieni. 
"Cease from troubling, neither be any 
longer peri)lexed, but even as the rest 
have done, likewise permit us to continue 
our course through Seniordom so that 
the heathen Junior and Prep, seeing our 
greatness, may be persuaded to follow 
in our steps, and in this manner increase 
the glory of the College." 

And when they heard this tli? in- 
structors were exceeding glad and de- 
bated among themselves no more ,vhat 
they should do but even as the members 
of Naughtv vSe\-en admonished, that ;he\- 

Now in that year it came to pass that 
a great hue and cry was raised at ^ilill- 
saps over foot-ball, and a decree went 
forth that all the College should play, 
both Preps and Freshmen, Sophomores 
and Juniors, and likewise the lortlly 

Now when the news of this decree 
reached the camp of the Juniors tnere 
was great rejoicing, for thev were man\- 
in numlier, and in stature they were like 
Goliath. likewise the Preps and Fresh- 
men rejoiced with an exceeding great 
joy, for they had many and strong men. 

1-lut when the Seniors heard it they 
were sad, for they were scholars and 
thought not of rough games ; also they 
were few in number and frDUi much 
study had waxed feeble in -trength. 
Nevertheless they took counsel among 
themselves and conversing one with an- 
other, said, "In great thnigs we have 
reaped success, in fool-ball we will not 
fail utterly " 

And straightway they semi a mes- 
senger unto the manager of athle'ics, 
sa\-ing: "Place the Seniors also on your 
schedule of games, for we too will jilay 
foot-ball, and we will eat nothing, neith- 
er will we drink nor sleep until the cliam- 
pionship cup be safe in our co-ed's 

I'.nt when the Juniors heard this they 
laughed and said. "It is a joke.'' 

Now it happened that the Seniors met 
fit St upon the gridiron the Sopnoinores 
and overcame them aiul sent them in 
shame back to their comrades. I'ut the 
Juniors ?nd Preps 'vvho beheld the game 
mocked the Seniors and said. "It is noth- 
ing, the Sophomores also are \veakl;ngs, 
and bv chance were they overthrown hy 

liiit it came to pass that when the 
Seniors encountered the I'reps and put 
them to shame even as they iiad done 
the Sophomores, there was mucii sui prise 
for the Preps were a people skided in 
foot-ball, and their fame had been noised 
abroad throughout the land, and the peo- 
]ile marveled at it, saying, "These Sen- 
iors play like professionals and not like 
lucn unaccustomed to the game." 

Now as the day drew nigh when the 
Juniors were to pla}- the Seniors, the 
Junior Captain, about the eighth or ninth 


hour ul the evening, sayeth to his fa- 
ther, "J have a hard Greek lesson. 1 
go to read it with a classmate." And 
straightway he goeth to the room of Rog- 
ers, the Psychologist ( the same was the 
Senior left end), and seeks to frighten 
him saymg, "You Seniors olay foot-ball 
but poorly. It was luck that you beat 
the Preps, the Juniors will treat you oad- 
ly. Think you that the Senior ends can 
contend with Adams and Kirkland ; 1 
also am a great player and it grieves me 
to consider how you will fare wlien in 
the heat of the game 1 strike you." And 
straightway upon ending his speech he 
givetii the horse laugh. 

But it came to pass that as the Jun- 
ior Captain maketh this speech there com- 
eth into the room John, the Senior cen- 
ter, whose surname is Weems, and he 
being a good spokesman answered and 
said, "Cease your vain boasting, have 
you not read that 'much prme goeth be- 
fore a fair? Think you that Terrell and 
jNeill will sleep while your heavy men 
are striking our ends? Saw you not how 
Berry and Loch bore themselves against 
the Preps?' And though I be a modest 
man and am accustomed to do great 
deeds rather than to boast of them, yet 
verily I say unto you 1 am no babv and 
in to-morrow's game I will butt your cen- 
ter so high that the birds of the air will 
nest on his carcass before he return to 
solid ground, and if after that he sliall 
strive to hinder my passage througn your 
line I will toss him so high that the 
earth's gravitation will cease to attract 
him and he shall become a heavenly body 
and revolve around the sun. even as the 
astronomers write is the case with 

Now at this saying the Junior wa;^ 
greatly astonished, for being a Junior he 
was ignorant and knew naught of the 
teachings of Astronomy and tirerefore 

imderstood not how this thing could 
happen. And he departed from theru and 
went forth into the black and dark jiight 
still marvelling at the Senior's words. 

And it came to pass that on tne fol- 
lowing day when the Seniors gathered 
together to play the Juniors the Jmiiors 
boasted greatly and sought to guy tiiem 
and wagged their heads at them saying, 
"If the Seniors' voices be like their legs 
they should sing well, for the}' nave legs 
like mocking birds." 

But when the game began the Jmiiors 
were not able to stand before the Sen- 
iors, but they were driven back even as 
the chaff before the whirlwind; they were 
defeated utterly, and great was their 
shame, so that they became a shaking 
of the head and a byword to all the Col- 
lege. And after that day when a Junior 
meeteth a Senior on the campus he pull- 
eth his hat over his eyes and shunneth 

Now it came to pass that when the 
Seniors again played the Juniors the 
Juniors had rested a long while but the 
Seniors were bruised and weary from 
much playing neither did they try very 
hard, so that on this day they did not 
prevail against the Juniors. 

I'ut when the season endeth and ex- 
aminations draw nigh the manager of 
Athletics reckoneth the percentage of 
the teams and lo ! the Seniors have won. 
So he inviteth a. great preacher to come 
from town to the morning chapel, and 
the preacher came and said many and 
wise things, both to the Seniors and to 
the (ithers and with honeyed words he 
delivered the cup to the Senior co-ed. 

And great joy prevailed among the 
Seniors, and that night their co-ed gave 
a great feast and invited them and they 
all went and did cat and drink and were 



se:n^ior class ruorHECY. 

"O force unseen but not unfelt. 

How dare you now these words relate, 
And why, O Muse, when we go out 
Shall we be forced to meet this faie ?'' 

Calvin Applewhite, the first by name, 
shall never fill this high estate amid those 
with whom he comes in contact. We 
see him as he graduates with honor from 
his chosen medical institution, and all 
seems to indicate for him a brilliant fu- 
ture. Lo ! but Calvin finds, as many other 
men have done, a vast diflference between 
the theoretical and the practical. His 
youthful ambitions fail him, and we rind 
hmT content with the routine work of a 
lonely country practice. Day and night 
he answers !iis official calls, disappointed 
i'l the fact that in none of tli«m is he 
abit to put forth those theories wnich he 
has in .store. He finds his life' a burden 
and his professional duties a never-end- 
infi experiment. He does not hesitate 
to prescribe but never knows the disease. 

Perhaps all of us have been wonder- 
ing; what shall become of "Fatty" Buck- 
strom. "Fatty" hails from the pmey 
woods and back to the piney woods he 
must go. He often dreams that he shall 
make a great lawyer and win distinction 
in the jiolitical life. Personally we thmk 
him worthy of greatness, but somehow 
he utterly fails to impress upon the pub- 
lic his importance. The only case which 
he successfully presents to a jury duiing 
bis whole professional career is the one 
in which he sues fci a divorce from tiie 
woman he has married. This case, )iow- 
evcr, was not decided on law and cvi- 

tknce, but rather on the general appear- 
ance of the victim. In disappointment 
we find him, an old man, recurnmg to 
his native haunts where he is allowed to 
develop the much-needed physical nian, 
mourning the fact that few men leceive 
tiieir just reward in this life. 

As we dip into the future anJ con- 
template the real in the life of Jim Eerry, 
we must say that he shall be successful 
ii dollars and cents can be a measure of 
success. Jim has ever been endowed 
with, wonderful business qualities. This 
natural tact leads him into the coninier- 
cir! life. From a small beginning he 
early climbs to the top. He easily solves 
the problems of modern commercialism, 
aiul even finds an entrance into the world 
of "high finance." In his old age, with 
his millions about him. he throws aside 
his complex business thoughts, and la- 
n.ents the fact that he has taken buch a 
narrow view of life. He has figured in 
dollars and cents, he has thought in dol- 
lars and cents, his life can only be ex- 
pressed in dollars and cents — a money 
ni;icliine. He passes from us with tlie 
tl'.ought that what a man does is but 
the expression of what he is. 

We find Bright in after years still 
possessed with the power to reason witli- 
oui a follower, neither has he lost the 
unliendable dignity which is so charac- 
teristic of the man. He is faithful to 


lii^ chosen profession and devotes his life 
to the ministry, lint unfortunately he 
dees not learn that the greatest life is 
the siin])lest life, that the greatest ser- 
mon is the simplest sermcm. His foun- 
tain of big words never fails to flow. 
His complexity is too great for his au- 
dience, and they go from him wonder- 
ing and guessing if this man does not 
live out of his proper age, but they aie 
content with the lessons of earnestne.>s 
and profundity which he so deeply im- 

Bullock has displayed wonderful pow- 
ers for accjuiring and retaining know i- 
edge. He enters the fields of activity tu 
which he so earnestly aspired and is con- 
tent to be called a teacher. If knowl- 
edge of the subject was the only iv- 
cjuirement he shall be eminently success- 
ful If all lessons could be learned by 
al'sorption we might well envy tho.-,e 
entrusted to his care. But him, too. we 
find deficient. He fails to impart what 
he knows. He is not able to give ex- 
pression to those great truths that h'.' 
has in store. Doomed with the law that. 
"A thought unexpressed is a thougiu 
that shall die," he retires from this fiei'. 
to spend his life alone, enjoying himself 
all by himself in his own original way. 

"Johnnie" Carlton is slow to take on 
manhood. With a boyish look and a boy- 
ish, nature he passes through this life, all 
along this arduous way he tries to assume 
a manlv bearing. He was old enough to 
be a Senior, but somehow he could not 
look like one. His preppy ways fail to 
indicate that he belonged to the SeniC'- 
state. During life he tries many projects 
but in none of them does he attain ary 
marked success. He gives us an exam- 
ple of an innocent failure and teaches 
us the lesson that one need not hope to 
develop into what he not by nature. 

We follow "Jack" Frost as he contin- 
uall}' ].)ractices those habits which n..' 
formed in College. For six years an act- 
ive member of the "Buttinsky" Club, he 

proves its most loyal promoter, and even 
ti;es to impress upon the world the im- 
portance of its principles. He later ue- 
comes a composer and wins distinction 
as a vocalist. His masterpiece, "But- 
tinsky," gives to the world in an attract- 
ive form the great principles for wdiich 
he lives. This piece he gladly renders 
at every opportunity granted him. His 
wide-spread rendering of his cherished 
product, soon awikes the world to knov/ 
that as time flies changes come, and that 
to "fnitt in" is better than to be prim 
and formal. 

We now turn to the member of our 
class who never decides things. He 
lea\-es College well equipoed, but instead 
o' entering direcily some special line of 
work, we find him weighing the several 
vocatious in his fruitless attempt to de- 
cide to which one he shall give his tal- 
ents. He teaches school — perhaps as a 
stepping-stone to something higher, or 
more likely that he may have time for 
further thoughts upon his life work. He 
becomes a journalist but is slill unde- 
cided and devotes his last and only 
thoughtful days to the writing of a booic 
which is but the expression of his life 
This is entitled "Indecision" and dedi- 
cated to the class of 1907 over thiT sig- 
nature of John W. Loch. 

James A. McKee, M.A., B.A., Miil- 
sapr. College. If the number of degree-j 
and the length of time spent at College 
count for anything he will easily outstrip 
all the other members of his class. They 
call him "parson," but he will never need 
a parsonage. He is a hard student, but 
never learns the art of study. His ser- 
mons are dry and uninteresting and 
prove a welcome cure for insomnia. He 
never reaches the main point because of 
his lengthy discussions of details. He 
will never be great because he is better 
fitted for the smaller things of life. He 
never tells her that he loves her because 
he is busy mapping out his minor feel- 


Old -Red" Neill's girlish giggle shall 
never fail him. Jolly and good-natured, 
with just enough seriousness to over- 
balance his clumsy carelessness, ne 
spends many years just on the inside of 
the ragged edge. Careless about his pro ■ 
fession he does nothing for many yeais. 
At last he awakes to the fact that he is 
destined to be a physician. He at once 
sets about to regain lost time, when old 
Dame Carelessness steps in and offers 
him a poor pair of pill-bags and a dozen 
doses of drugs, tmd thus equipped he 
goes forth giving calomel for ston; 
bruises and epsom salts for earache. 
Carelessness comes and cuts the cord ana 
cures "Red" of callous cares. 

Sam Osborne is stubby in lonn and 
stubby by nature. The very essence of 
indifterence. Ide has many opportunities 
to render himself useful, but to none of 
them does he attach importance. \\ hat 
little he accomplishes is accomplished 
mere by friendly chance than by per- 
sonal efforts. For many years he leads 
this easy, indifferent life, never exerting 
himself to grasp a proposition or take 
advantage of an opportunity, lie is 
forced to Ijecome a store-keeper, but for 
lack of effort is never equal to the great- 
est problems of modern commercialism. 
He never wins favor with the girls bo- 
cause his time is spent in admiring him- 

The world is h.ard on Pierce. Uncle 
Sam does not love him because ne has 
deserted his place of birth. England 
fails to honor his citizenship Because he 
was born under the Stars and Stripes. 
Honduras does not know him as a cit- 
izen, but grants him the privilege to 
plant cocoanuts and har^'est bananas. 
"A man without a country," he sets o:;t 
in his efforts to realize the fulfillment of 
his college dreams. A world empire is 
foimed with Pierce as emperor. Onc-^ 
the world was hard on him, but now 
the tide has changed and the world 
must do him homage. 

With few firmly-fixed feelings, ]\Iii-: 

Ridgeway finds a focus for her funny 
phase of life in hei foolish fancy. She 
fjmcies first of all that furrows formed 
b_\ farmers and the further toils which 
f<j!lo\v shall fail to feed her funny na- 
ture. Ui course she fails to find iicr iv- 
ture husband in the faithful farmer boy. 
She further fancies that the fullesc field 
for her and those fitful forces which so 
fully fill her nature may be found m 
field of fiction. Five and fifty years she 
labors, forming plots and framing pict- 
ures. Failing fully fame to find amid 
her former fancies, she finally fancies 
that she will spend her future days lu 
an effort to find the fame and fortune 
of the one and fifteen members of her 
faithful class. She only found the former 

Rogers thinks he is destined to be 
a banker. Often has he dreameil of the 
time when he should be honored wilii 
the presidency of one of those great 
financial institutions. Idis ambitions run 
av>ay from his powers. He could fly 
to a star as easily as he could make a 
success of banking. Finally convinced 
that he has been a failure as a banker 
he begins the life for whicii !ie is best 
suited, and reaps many noble harvests 
from his faithful cultivation of the soii. 

Grover Terrell is the next. \\"e re- 
g;et to make reference to him. Pie pic- 
serts to us that type of man who gives 
general disappointment. Millsaps was 
hesitant to receive him and most sadlv 
disappointed did she turn him out to 
disappoint the world. He is one of pro- 
portion somewhere but defies mankind 
tc find where it is. He disappoints his 
friends when he tells them of wonder- 
ful chemical discoveries that he is going 
to make, and proceeds to singe his eye- 
brows in his attempt to see if gunpowder 
will support combustion. He spends 
many, many years in those scientific in-

From the class of 1907 goes forth 


one of Falstaffian proportions, to whom 
none of the things that he learned in 
College sticks except his winning ways, 
his charming chat, his jolly jokes and 
flabby fat. He goes to a little country 
town ten miles from any railroad, where 
he can always be found when new light 
is wanted on some base-ball subject. He 
has more money and less brass than any 
man in his class. Out in that little town 
of the wilderness, he is content to spend 
h's long life tickling the fancy of all who 
know him, by his cheerful chuckle when 
he drops his chubby chin. John Weems 
will be surprised when the only girl he 
ever loved awakes him to the lolly of 
matrimony and to the fate of a bachelor. 
Why "Old Blaze" Williams worked 

so hard on his man speeches will never 
cease to be a wonder to those with whom 
lie i^• acquainted. Wirt wanted to become 
a lawyer, and became bald-headed in the 
attempt to equip himself for this profes- 
sion. He finds that his love for the coun- 
try and the attractions of farm life are 
too strong for him to resist. He seems 
to enjoy farming, but his impractical 
methods are the source of much laughter 
among his jolly neighbors. In a scien- 
tific attempt to revolutionize the art of 
imile shearing, he was unconsciously 
hurled into oblivion by the more scientific 
manner in which "Old Maud" had learn- 
ed to use her only weapon of defense.

We 've been at College now some time, for sure. 

We know the ins and outs of College life, 

Its ups and downs, its joys and pleasures, too, 

Because we 've been at scho(;)l for quite a while. 

We came here strangers, timid, rough, unknown — 

Mere boys who ne"er had wise nor earnest thought 

Nor spoke except to say some foolish word. 

The folks, who saw those boys four years ago, 

Who laughed because their pants were too short — 

In other words, because of city dress 

And city manners knew they naught at all. 

Also because there were a score or more 

Of things that modern city folks do use 

Of which they had not even heard before — 

Those folks, I say, thought not what dormant strength 

There lay behind that stupid stare, unwaked. 

They little thought the campus e'er would mourn 

Because their faces were not seen again ; 

That they would bring old Millsaps fame and honor, 

,\nd to the college heart endear themselves. 

But of all that we 've done and more besides. 

We will not tell you all — 'twould take too long — 

'Bout how the laundry wagim we did paint 

One night, and take doc's buggy all apart. 

If you but knew the record black of deeds 

We 've done I think you 'd say that we were bad. 

We 're not, for know the saw, "Boys will be boys." 

I bet you would do as bad or worse than we 

If you but had the chance or were not 'fraid. 

Now listen ! We have fooled the Profs or else 

They are good actors, for they say this class 

Of all is best and seem to speak the truth. 

They think they know us boys, alas ! poor dears. 

We can but love them though. We 've found them men 


Both ^ood ami true, net oyres as first we thought; 

We were afraid of them when we were "new." 

But that 's all past and gone ; we worried them ; 

\\'e ragged them too. then busted on top of that ! 

We got our share of honors, perhaps you know. 

We care no longer sucu small things to seek, 

We go in now for only great big things. 

For, don't you know, our learning we have got. 

Enough of grits and gravy, so-called steak 

And other stuffs alike, we say, we 've had. 

We bid adieu to base-Mil field, to gym, 

To nearly every sport we here have played. 

Of foot-ball games pciiiaps we've won our last — 

Because we 've got our education now. 

But may we cherish jtill the meni'ries dear 

Of college life, of pranks, of fears and scrapes 

And jokes which added zest to our careers, 

And often may we meet in these old haunts. 

Nor may our faces ever strange become 

To those that saw and knew us here in school. 

But we are through, and, since we needs must go. 

To others leave we all our dog-eared books. 

We hope some help to them wall be those lines 

We interspersed adown their thumb-marked leaves — 

They represent hard hours of toil by us. 

Others may whittle upon our old boards 

And chew on our old cow, take our zeros. 

Oh dear! I wonder if they 11 take our girls? 

May they with pleasure walk or ride along 

Until at last they too. ITke us, can say. 

"We 're done with Alath and Greek, with Latin too. 

The sciences those we "ve tried. The weary way 

Along a stale old college course we 've trod."

Junior Class. 



In SL'i)tcinber, 1904, th^M'e appeared 
on th( campus a band ot aspirmg youths, 
unknown to the outside as well as to the 
College world and to each other, ;ixty- 
six ir. number, "verdant" yet "all on 
stuciy bent." While the college men were 
joyously greeting each other with hearty 
grips these homesick individuals found 
themselves objects of curious scrutiny. 
It was indeed "with fear and trembling" 
that they passed through horrors of 
entrance examinations. 'I hey gazed in 
awe upon the august faces now grown 
so familiar. 

Their fear was to a great degree re- 
moved after the Y. M. C. A. reception, 
where they became acquainted with their 
college mates. Thev found that 'here 
were "Preps" actuallv lower than tliey, 
and were thrilled with an inexpressible 
sensation of joy when they were first 
caliec' "College men." This was the 
beginning of the Class of 1908. Our 
name: were placed upon the rolls of all 
the various college organizations, and 
\v; took active part in all the different 
phases of college life. We were equally 
diligent whether on the athletic fifld or 
tre;iding on foot (or riding?) over the 
rocky ways of Cicero and Xenophon, or 
responding in "Alalh" to the call: "The 
following will please go to the b^)ar(l." 
We really made a bright record in that 
first year that now seems so long, long 

When we returned as "Sophs," al- 
thorigh some had dropped out and we 
had lost our only "co-ed" We were not 
devoid of class spirit, Init felt almo.^t 
equal to the Seniors. I lowever, when 
we began to battle with sines anil cosines 

and when we heard the answer: "fhat '& 
very, very bad," as the Latin professor 
reached for his grade book, we began 
to realize that we were not altogether 
sages, but still had something to iearn. 
As for oratory, one would think that 
Demosthenes had been resurrected if he 
chanced to listen to the stream of Soph- 
omcric eloquence as it poured -forth in 
licuntiful profusion in June, 1900. Sure- 
1\- there are great statesmen, yea, tven. 
I'residents in embryo for future gener- 
ation among the members of ihis noble 

September, "oC, witnessed the entry of 
thj Class of 1908 upon an era of almost' 
unprecedented ( ?) success. Although 
our number is not more than iialf what 
it v.'as just two years ago, those of us 
who remain are proud of our Class and 
have high ideals for it. We indeed count 
ourselves fortunate to be honored with 
the membership of a "co-ed" once more. 
The present finds Juniors at the head 
in almost every department — as Literary 
Society presidents and anniversarians, 
Commencement debaters. President of 
Athletic Association and officers and 
teachers of Y. M. C. A. While thus we 
ha\e been busy in the literary line we 
have not neglected athletics. In foot- 
ball we ])ushed the Seniors for the cham- 
pionship. The champion basket - ball 
team at Ruston, Louisiana, in December 
was composed principally of members of 
Oiiv Class, and we also claimed the Class 
basket-ball pennant. Now that the base- 
"ball season is on hand, we feel sure that 
the Class of 'oS will win her share of 
honors on the diamond, liut our great- 
est honor is yet unmentioned. The I'ac- 

ulty has selected a member of our Class 
tj represent the College in the State In- 
ter-collegiate (Jratorical Contest, which 
lakes place at Columbns in May. This 
is the highest honor given by ttie Col- 
lege, and is usually claimed by a Senior. 
Realizing that it would take books 
to write a complete histor)-, I have only 
made brief mention of a few of the many 
laurels won by this illustrious Class. Al- 
though the tasks set for us have not al- 
ways been performed and the lessons to 

be learned have too often been neglected, 
yei' ali of us realizing that our education 
lies not wholly in books, should truly 
say that from our College life we: obtain 
a far deeper insight into the future than 
could ever have been our share had not 
our alma mater guided us through all 
thes!. years : and to all in the memory 
of the future the time will be a pleasant 
reach upon the varied distance of life's 
lorig' pathway. 


AN ixcide:nt. 

A Prep, a string, a defunct snake, 
A breathless pause, then presto ! 

O coed, a shriek, a sermon, a meek 
And sadder, wiser Preu O ' 



Event propitious, frauglit with liope of zest, 
Came in Marcli to Millsaps men. nauglit seven. 
To see the sons of earth and stars of heaven, 

Whitworth Seniors louffht : we were so blest. 

Trolly-riding went we, even-paired. 
Haply, but happily for those who shared 
Smiles of ladies stately, whose rich tresses. 
Wind-blown, impaired sedately chaste caresses. 

While they, dear girls, viewed glories celestial, 
Beheld we, bold men, beaulies terrestial. 
Peering, said "she": "Oh, isn't A^enus cute?" 
At once "he" felt Dan Cupid shoot. 

Campus, town surveyed, around we strayed, 
Compliments were passed on one another. 

Whatever else engaged, this mind was stayed — • 
The great command to keep: "Love one another." 

Why not let us hope that good abiding 

May come to those that are as yet unplighted? 

Whereas on life's broad sea we are still tiding, 
'Tis time our 'oetter half should soon be sighted. 

But prate I not of what is all sublime, 

Queenly charms fiive i^rought on me weird seizure. 

Should you complain at surli a change in rhyme, 
My mind possessed, will right mistakes at leisure.

■'VVhy weep ye at the hoard, Sophie? 

Why weep ye at the board? 
I "11 send ye yet another day, 

When ye are not so floored, 
When ye are not so ffoored. Sophie, 

And rattled in your mind." 
But, aye, he let the tear^ run down 

And tore his liair behind. 

"Now wipe those Preppish tears away. 

And rub your work all out ; 
You 've made a zero 'fore to-day 

And none should see you pout ; 
And tho' ye looK much like a clown, 

Ye have a little mind." 
But, aye, he let the tears run down 

And tore his hair behind. 

"I 've ge'en zeroes by the peck, 

-And all are richly due. 
Ye could not prove, to save your neck, 

That one md one are two. 
Now quit this running ofif to town 

And give to Alath your mind." 
But, aye, he let the tears run down 

And tore his nair behind. 

'Twas time ot trouble ir, the land, 

"Exams" were in the air. 
All Preps and Seniors were at hand. 

But Sophie was not there. 
The teachers aought inni all aroun'. 

But him they could not find, 
For Sophie 'd cut and quit the town 

And left his hair behind ! 



, OQ. 

HlfSTORV or THE CLASS OF *(>;». 

To the average student of Geography, 
it i^ a matter of Httle consequence where 
the average stream rises or whither it ih- 
rects its course, but wlien it com^s to 
sucli great streams as the -Mississippi or 
the Amazon, it is (|uite different. I:s 
CGinse and source are alike viagerly 
soiight. it is thus with the student of 
history. Tlie ordinary institution chal- 
lenges no especial attention, but when 
it comes to a great organization like t;ie 
class of '09, the admiring multitudes de- 
mand all the details of its histor}- — no 
matter how trivial they may be. 

I realize that in order to write a true 
am! complete history, it is necessai}' to 
giy^ the date of birth, h.ome and a bri.f 
sketch of the life of the character treated. 
It had been my purpose to give these de- 
tails, but scarcely had I begun compiling 
my data before 1 discovered that our fair 
re]3resentatives in Section I. were, with- 
out exception. Hearing the age of si.^teen. 
Fearing that the ancient proverb "that 
an old head is wisdom's storehouse' 
might cause my recital of our unexcelled 
ability to be looked upon with a slight 
degree of suspicion, I have concluded to 
deprive the reader of the knowledge that 
several members of our most illustrious 
class are now upon the threshold of — 
their sixteenth summer. Then too. some 
say that we have been so constant!}' in 
the limelight and that the world has 
Vv'atched our course with so much enthu- 
siasm that our history need not be wriL- 
ten in detail. 

^^'e are veritable giants in Math an'.! 
the Classics. Sucli sharks are we that 
it is rumored tliat several of our nuniljer 
Avill be "lield over" another year in order 
tliat we may pilot the coming class over 

the rougli and rugged journe-\- und, if 
p<.;.sib!e, make clear to them some of 
tlie mysteries of the parabola. 

\\'hile we have been unusually earnest 
in tlie |)ursuit of literary activities, we 
have ]3_\- no means neglected athletics. 
We have played all the games — foot- 
ball, base-ball, basket-ball and tennis 
— very successfully. So successfid were 
we in foot-ball that someone has wisely 
likeneil the charge of our enemies of the 
gridiron to that of the Light Brigade. 
Some, for whom foot - ball was too 
rough, have engaged in the less strenu- 
ous sport of pony riding, ar wliich they 
have become very skilful, and it would 
indeed Ije hard to find a professional 
eouestrian of the ring whose "stunts" 
could perplex them. 

\Mien we returned this year nianv of 
ouv members had either fallen by the 
\iayside or cast their lot in another clime, 
but our ranks were replenished vvith good 
and loyal members. \\"e have labored 
earnestly and have alreadv begun to look 
forward to the greatest event of the ses- 
sion Commencement. \\'e are preparing 
ou'- speeches, and when the day for their 
delivery rolls around, the flood gates 
of oratory will be raised. 

It is truly a great class. And I doubt 
not in the process of time it shall gain 
in lustre until some bright numlDer Of 
the constellation shall become the guid- 
ing star of all those who desire eminence 
in his profession. 

However, I shall leave this fragment 
to be completed by the Historian of the 
frlin^e — ncA-er doubting that high upon 
ih,' scroll (if fame there is a place secured 
t'l tlie class of 'o<). 



"Luc\', I am ver\- inucli huit that you 
(lirl ii.- ' 

"Well, niuther, even Jennie Ray went 
with us, and \(>u kiK.iw she is the very 
bes: girl in unr Class. We didn t think 
it \\as so very bad to run otf. This is 
our last session at this Sehool, and then 
everybody plays pranks on the first of 

"That does not exeuse you in the 
least, my daughter. If \ou had refuse(i 
to go possibly you might have been tlu 
means of keeping the whole Class. Then 
after all, what fun did you find in it :" 

"Lots, mother; we had a delightful 
limch in the park, and then it was fun 
to think how eheap Prot. Smith must 
ha\e felt when he found us all gone. 
Don't you think he was surprised?" 

"No more than I am, Luey. 1 want 
you to go to your room and think quiet- 
ly over this matter, and I am sure you 
will feel very difTerently about it. You 
must apologize to Prof. Smith in the 
morning, and if you are not really sbriy 
it will all be of no use. Sit there until 
I call you." 

Feeling very miserable, I went to my 
room and stood by the wnidovv. If Prof. 
Sniith had come along, I could nave truly 
told him that I was sorry, for althougli 
I could see no harm in it, I then felt 
that I must have done wrong or mother 
v/culd not have taken it so seriouslv. 

Suddenly I was aroused from my 
tlioughts by the rins:ine of the door bell. 
Then in a few minutes I heard r.iother 
exclaim, "Why ! Alice Green ! Where on 
earth did you come from ? How glad I 
am to see you ! You haven't changed a 
bit, vou are the same little Alice vou used 

to be." S(jnn they were seated in the 
roou! just in front of mine, and I learned 
that Alice Green was mother's old col- 
lege chum, who)n she had not seen in 
eighteen years. 

My room was separated from tlieirs 
only by folding doors, and it happened 
that they were slightly ajar. So as moth- 
er liad told me to sit there, I could not 
but hear their conversation. 

They talked of what had hapjjened 
since they had seen each other, of their 
families and such things, but soon their 
conversation drifted to their oul college' 

"Alice," said mother, "you don't 
know how the Class missed )-ou. We 
were all so sorry that you did not re- 
turn after the holidays. What fun you 
did miss ! J don't think a Senior class 
ever had better times than we did." 

"1 was greatly disappointed when 1 
found that I could not graduate with my 
Class, but mother's health was failing so 
rapidly, I felt it my duty to remain at 
home. I have often thought of those 
good times we had. Tell me about the 
rest of the session. Did you have mrny 
moie of those jolly feasts?" 

"Alice," said mother, "I almost get 
young again when I think of those c'ays. 
Indeed we did, one especially. You re- 
member the old Art Room where cdl of 
our spreads were laid?" 

"■Yes : could anyone ever forget hav- 
ing to climb those four flights of stairs 
every day?" 

"Well, eight of us girls had planned 
a feast for a certain night, and in some 
wav the Juniors heard of it. They were 
al\\ays trying to get ahead of us, and 


soon we knew that there was to be an- 
other feast in the Art Room that night. 
"After that we racked our Drains to 
find some way to keep them from (jut- 
doing us. At last Nellie Jenkins liit up- 
on a plan that suited exactly. You re- 
member all of those little closets around 
the walls, where our Art Materials were 
kept? That night we waited until we 
knew it was almost time for the Janiors 
to go up, then we, wrapped in sheets con- 
cealed ourselves in the closets. 

"Presently we heard the door being- 
opened very cautiously, and silentl)' they 
began to prepare their feast. Occ^ision- 
ally we heard someone say something 
about the Seniors having to give up their 
feast From our watch through the key- 
hole we saw them all sit down reavly to 
begin. Then as we had before planned, 
wlicn one girl turned her door knob, each 
did the same, and all at once eignt white 
figures appeared on all sides. Vou ought 
to have heard the screams, and seen the 
expression on their faces as they dashed 
out of that room. 

"We bolted the door, and it is u.-ciess 
to tell you we enjoyed their uut.'.isted 

"And Alice, do you remember Jim 
Stone, who was ^lary Crane's old stand- 
by, and how they used to get notes to 
each other? I often wonder that nrore 
of us didn't get caught up with. Seems 
to me that anyone would have known 
that boys didn't go walking e\-er\' after- 
noon just when we did fiir notiiing. 
They always knew so easily when we 
had a note for them, and I Vealh- tnink 
it was wonderful how notes got to their 
right owners, when we gave them to 
just any boy we happened to meet. 

"They seemed to have read the notes 
as pay for delivering them, and Jim soon 
tired of that. So they determined to 
try another plan. Alary promised to let 
the note down from her window by a 
cord, whenever lie came for it. Thi.s' al- 
so brought with it a problem, how was 

Afar_\- to know when he came? It was 
impossible to dodge the night watches at 
any set time. jMary seemed always able 
to solve these problems, so she told Jim 
that she would tie the cord to her little 
bell, and in this way he could wake her. 
"This seemed very plausible to Jim, 
1nit Alary still had troubles, for she knew 
that it would take more than the ringing 
of a little bell to wake her. And how do 
\on suppose she managed? Well, that 
n.ight instead of tying the string to the 
bill she tied it to her toe, and soon went 
soundly to sleep. 

"How long she had slept :Mary never 
knew, but she was awakened by a slight 
l)ull of the string. As Jim did not hear 
the bell, he gave the cord a still harder 
pull, then still not hearing a sound he 
gave it a most awful jerk. 

"Oh. what agony Mary endured, but 
she suppressed her feelings and quietly 
let down the letter. All the rest of that 
night she tossed, unable to again close 
her eyes, and early the next morning Dr. 
I<ihnson was called in to see a dislocated 
toe. For many days she was constantly 
ren:inded of it by the loose slipper which 
she was forced to wear. Afterwards poor 
lin had to submit to reading second- 
iiar.ded letters. 

".\nd the night Air. Delaney called! 
1 had almost forgotten about it. Hnw I 
eve,- did it I don't know, but 1 did. Mr. 
Delanev was John's old friend who 'Hap- 
pened to pass through on his way to 
Ohio. Jcihn wanted him to call, so T de- 
cided to trv to get permission. \oii re- 
iiKUiljcr lidw hard it was while you were 
there, and towards the close of the ses- they made a rule that all permissions 
nir.s: begotten from President Chambers. 
"It happened that John had sent me 
a liox of candy that afternoon, so this 
ga\e me an idea. I knew if I wrote a 
riote asking to call. President wouM im- 
mediately say. "Xo," so I just wrote a 
f.=w lines in a large masculine hand on 
til? wrapping of the box, saying tliat he 

was ill town and hoped to see nie. Then 
I signed J. L. Delaney"s name to it. 

■■\\'ith this I went to President Ciiam- 
ber's office. To my surprise, wlien he 
had finished reading tlie lines, he looked 
up very pleasantly and said, 'Is he an 
old friend of yours from home?" Of 
course I had to boldly say 'Yes.' and then 
President told me that he really saw no 
objections, but catitioned nie to remem- 
ber the hour. 

"With President Chambers" permis- 
sion 1 felt that my way was indeed clear, 
but that night something happened to 
change my mind. Alice, I had never 
seen jNlr. Delaney, all on earth that I 
knew about him was that he was John's 
friend and was considered very hand- 
some. To my surprise, when I reached 
the parlor door, there sat President 
Chambers and three strange young men, 
all engaged in a conversation. 

"\Miat could I do? I had told Pres- 
ident that he was an old friend and now 
I must prove it. Of course I hesitated, 
for I had to think, and then too, I 
thought that someone might call his 
name. But just as I stopped, ^liss Kaven 
came running down the stairs and said, 
"Go on in, Anna, you look lovely to- 
night. Don't stop, for you are alreadv 

"I knew that I must jnit on a bold 
face and try my luck. John had said 
that he was handsome, so I just picked 
out the handsomest man of all and rushetl 
up to him. Alice, I even called him bv 
his given name and told him he had not 
changed any since we used to go to 
school together in that little red school- 
house by the lane. At first he looked a 
little surprised, but by the time I had fin- 
ished with my lengthy greeting, he saw 
my position and startled me by asking 
if that was the same old black dress I 
used to wear, and why I persisted in 

wearing a red rose in my hair. Truly 
I had settled on the right man, aua dfter 
introducing him to President Chaniners, 
\\ e sat down to talk of old folks at home. 

"Alice, would you believe that the 
President and those gentlemen sat in the 
parlor the entire evening, and although 
thej seemed very much interested in 
their own conversation I knew full well 
that the President heard every word we 
said. Once especially, just as Air. De- 
laney asked me if I had heard that led 
Payne and Alary Sullivan were married, 
I saw the President listening, so I said, 
'What, that great tall woman and that 
ti.Tv little man?' Then the President and 
all the others stopped to laugh. We 
talked on this way continually, making 
everybody laugh until I heard the stroke 
01 ten. and Air. Delaney, apparently very 
reluctantly, took his departure. 

"C)n my way to breakfast the next 
morning I met President Chambers and 
he stopped me, saying 'Anna, you seem 
to have enjoyed your friend's visit very 
much last night. Whenever an old friend 
like him is in town. I have no objection 
to his calling.' " 

Night alone forced mother's friend 
to leave, and when mother came into 
my room, I had lighted the lamp. Her 
face was beaming as she said, "Lucy, 
m\- old room-mate at Harding has '^pent 
the afternoon with me, and you don't 
knov' what a pleasant time we iiave bad."' 

"Yes, mother." I said, "don't Niink 
thrt I was eavesdropping, for I would 
not do so for anything, but you remem- 
ber you told me to sit here quietly until 
you called me. so I could not keep fsom 
Ilea ring and from thinking how times 
b.ave changed since you were a girl." 

I did not have to apologize to Prof. 
Smith- the next dav.

Fkhshmax Class. 

Freshman Class. 


The 26th of September, 1906, found 
a forlorn - looking group of Freshmen 
assembled with the old students in the 
College Chapel. We eould easdy be dis- 
tinguished, for we were standing about 
with our hands in our pockets and re- 
garding the old students with a mixture 
of awe and bewilderment. How we 
longed for companionship in this lonely 
hour. It seemed that the element^ had 
formed a combination with other things 
to make us homesick, for it had been 
raining almost incessantly in torrents 
since our arrival in Jackson. By this 
tim? we were feeling our first attack of 
homesickness. This feeling of loneliness 
remained with us until we had formed 
acquiiintances among the boys and had 
settled down to work. 

It was not long before we began to 
feel proud of our Class and to compli- 
ment ourselves that we were genuine 
Freshmen — not green ones, for this color 
had been used by the Class that preceded 
us and was therefore unknown in our 

The Seniors tried to humiliate us by 
calling us "ignoramuses" and other, 
n.imes, the meaning of which we could 
not entirely comprehend. Yet our hopes 
revived when we found that there were 
two classes below us, the "Preps." 

We met in due time and elected Class 
officers, selected our colors, ordered Class 
hats and adapted a motto which we have 
always stood by : "Let the co-eds do the 
wcik." This meeting seemed to have 
done more for promoting Class spirit 
than anything else. Since that time the 
spirit of the Class of '10 has been grow- 
ing every day. We have a right to take 
pride in our Class for a great many rea- 
so'.is. Each one of the co-eds is as loyal 
a supporter of the Freshman Class as 
our most brawny athlete or our most 

ie:\'ent orator. This is clearly shown by 
ihe tact that they always come (jut and 
' loot' when the team plays any ot the 
<thei Class teams, in numbers we sur- 
pass any other Class in College, there 
being seventy-three of us who hope to 
wear caps and gowns in 1910; m debate 
and oratory we are ever pi-e-eminent, our 
men being leading lights in both the Lit- 
eral y Societies. Besides this we are well 
represented in the publications ol the 

In Athletics such names as Jones, 
Adams. Haley, Clark and others will live 
forever in the annals of the College. We 
have represemtatives in every kind of 
out-door sport. In "gym" work we are 
prominent : one of our members has 
eliarge of the gymnasium, and his pro- 
ficiency is recognized by all. Our foot- 
ball team competed successfully with the ' 
other Class teams. When the base-ball 
se.'isor. opened there were among us, ball 
players who organized themselves into a 
teen which was defeated only m one 
game For various reasons, this game 
nee.: not be further mentioned. In 
basket-ball our team did some very ef- 
fective work. At the close of the series 
the "gentle and simple Preps," the "gay 
30ung Sophomores" and "grand old 
Seniors" had all been laid quietly down 
to rest "in the shade of the old apple 
tiee' h} the "verdant Freshmen" who 
\\-ere only suqiassed In' the "jolh' Jun- 

J\Iay each one return to College next 
session as a Sophomore to maintain the 
high standard which has been set by our 
Clasr during the past session. And when 
the Class of '10 has made its last appear- 
ance on the rostrum of Millsaps College 
r.iay there be no other Class to surpass 
the splendid record made by them. 



Dear old skule, 

The sparrows sing above you, 

Dear old skule ; 

They speak of how I love you, 
And Oh, what a fib they "tell! 
For I hate to hear your bell 
That summons us to class-room 
To hear pronounced our last doom, 
For Monday morning lessons 
Don't cause a flow of blessin's 

On our old skule, dear old skule. 

Dear old skule. 

Bushes glow along the walk, 

Dear old skule. 

Where we used to love to talk 
Of the lessons we had not 
And the lectures ne'er forgot. 
Of the latest at the show 
And the places where we 'd go 
If we were not then at skule 
Under teacher's strictest rule 

In our old skule, dear old skule. 

Dear old skule, 

The trees so green around you, 

Dear old skule ; 

They look as if they 'd found you 
Manv a long year before 
In that spot where now your door 
Causes often woeful thoughts 
Of the zeros and the naughts 
Given wear}- pupils there. 
Causing them so much despair 

In our old skule, dear old skule. 


Dear old skule, 

The pupils gone above you, 

Dear old skule, 

Surely once thev didn't love you, 
Or else they didn't understand, 
Though thev loved their native land 
Thev didn't have to love their skule 
With its hard and cruel rule. 
Distance, 't is, enchants the view; 
Some dav I may love you, too, 

jNIv own old skule, dear old skule. 

Dear old skule, 

When this class at last is gone, 

Dear old skule. 

Clover blossoms in your lawn 
Still will be as green and white 
As I know they are to-night; 
In the shadow of the trees 
There '11 be nothing but the bees 
To regret we 've gone away 
And wish us back again some day 

To our old skule, dear old skule. 

Dear old skule. 

When we have graduated, 
Dear old skule, 

From duties always hated. 

On this final happy night, 

When the future seems so bright, 

Filled with joys and sweet delight. 

And we know that we have quite 

Gone beyond our former wavs. 

We '11 wish again the old skule-days 
In our old skule, dear old skule.

Ever since its organization, the La- 
n;ar Literary Society has been one of 
the n'lOst important adjuncts of Miilsaps 
College. Its members are always among 
the foremost men in College, and in de- 
bate they are worthy of consideration. 

In all its history, no year has been 
so successlul as the present. It has pros- 
pered not only from a literary point of 
view but also from a financial, as a few 
facts will demonstrate. Members of our 
society are to represent the College botii 
in the Mississippi Oratorical Contest and 
the Crystal Springs Chautauqua, \V. F. 
Alurrah being the representative to the 
former and S. I. Osborn to the latter. 
Then again we have not allowed our 
money "to lie idly by" but have used 
it in equipping and beautifying our hall. 
The result is that we have one of the 
most beautiful and attractive halls to be 
found anywhere. 

When we returned this year it was 
discovered that many of our last year's 
men would not be back again, and con- 
siderable anxiety was expressed as to 
the outcome of this year's work ; but all 
fears of an unsuccessful year's work 
were soon dispelled, for it was soon dis- 
covered that our ranks had been replen- 
ished with a number of men thoroughly 
imbued with the spirit of our motto: 
"Nulla palma sine, labore." We were 
equally successful in securing honorary' 
members, and many men are now in the 
societv hard at work, who would not 

have become members had it been for 
these 'attractions." 

Patriotism and love of the society 
rather than politics have characterized 
this year's work. Jn the selection of 
officers, debaters and speakers the men 
have had one end in view, and that to 
secure the best and most capable men 
regardless of class or other affiliations. 

At the annual election, which oc- 
curred in the early part of the session, 
the following men were chosen to rep- 
resent the society in the various capac- 
ities : Anniversarian, S. I. Osborn ; Or- 
ator, C. H. Kirkland; Commencement 
Debaters, Jeff Collins and W. F. Mur- 
rah ; Mid-Session Debaters, T. L. Bailey 
and O. F. Turner. W. A. Williams was 
elected to represent the society in the 
Inter - Collegiate Debate between the 
Southern University and IVIillsaps. The 
debate occurred at Greensboro, Alabama, 
and Mr. Williams and his colleague from 
the Galloway Society won the question. 

We are now nearing the end of the 
vear's work and are anxiously awaiting 
Commencement, for then we believe that 
our members will do our society great 

To the one who peers through the 
dim vista of the future the prospects 
seem brighter than ever before ; so we 
can but prophesy that next year's work 
will be the greatest in the history of the

The history of the Galloway Literary 
Society, indicating the time of its origin, 
its purpose, and the honors won during 
the first fourteen years of its existence 
having been published in a previous edi- 
tion, it only remains to tell what has been 
accomplished in the session of nineteen 
hundred six and seven. 

The Galloway Literary Society is a 
progressive organization having no pa- 
tience with the old realistic idea that we 
should accept things as we find them, 
rather believing that man has accom- 
plished nothing that cannot be improved 
upon. This progressive spirit has been 
manifested this year in amending the 
■constitution so as to provide for a public 
meeting for the first Friday evening of 
•each month, and for an extemporaneous 
■debate in addition to each regular pro- 
gramme. The purpose of the former is 
to stimulate speakers to greater efforts 
■and to give the public an opportunity to 
see the kind of work the society is aoing. 

But the society is not content with 
being on the right side of every question 
simply, and is satisfied only when it has 
brought others over to its own way of 
thinking. For example, upon learning 
that the Lamar Society, a similar organi- 
zation of the College, was laboring under 
a delusion that we should not have an in- 

heritance tax law, it immediately sent two 
of its most popular orators, j\iessrs. W. 
O. Uackstrom and J. C. Rousseaux, to 
that honorable body for the purpose of 
convincing them of their error. The 
Gallowa}' representatives soon became 
aware that their task was no easy one, 
lor they were met in public debate by two 
of Lamar's, who, though in the wrong, 
were so sure that they were right that 
they sustained their convictions with ex- 
cellent argTiment. However, the Gallo- 
way representatives were ecjual to the oc- 
casion and succeeded in converting them 
to their views. 

The advancement of the society dur- 
ing this term over that of the previous 
ones is not due to chance. It is due, in 
a large measure, to the wise leadership 
of its presidents and the faithful efiforts 
of its speakers ; and so long as the so- 
ciety is composed of men who believe in 
its motto and are loyal to its constitu- 
tion, it will be in no danger of decline 
but its march will ever be onward and 
upwartl to the attainment of the highest 
aspirations of its most enthusiastic lead- 
ers, confirming their belief that while 
the societv has won more than its share 
of honors in the past the future has still 
greater honors in store for it.

Y. M. C. A. Officers. 


L'rg-anizfd shortly after the College 
was founded, the Y. ]\I. C. A. has been 
ever dominated by the two-fold purpose 
( 1 ) of leading men to an aeceptance of 
Christ, and ( 2 ) of forming such asso- 
ciations among the students as to help 
them guard against the temptations of 
college life. It places the spiritual above 
the intellectual and emphasizes the im- 
portance of Christian activity in educa- 

The Association strives to accomplish 
its worthy ideal by holding twice-a-week 
prayer-meetings conducted by the stu- 
dents, or, has frequently been the case, 
by some member of the Faculty. Pro- 
fessors \\'almsley, Swartz, Rickets and 
Wise have so favored us this session. 
Attracted away by other things in the 
spring, however, students need more of 
a stimulus than weekly meetings ; this 
stimulus is provided by the annual re- 
vival services, conducted this session by- 
Rev. Paul AI. ISrown, of the i^oiiisiana 

Nor is this the only method of the 
Association to keep up a lively interest 
in Christian work : to this end delegates 
each year are sent to some students' con- 
vention. From such trips the delegates 
return fired with new enthusiasm to im- 
part to those who have tarried "by the 
stuff." The usual Southwestern Confer- 
ence at Ruston this year saw a clelega- 
tiiin from Millsaps larger than any other 

representation from the Colleges of the 
Southwest. Those going from our Col- 
lege were Messrs. Brown. Alullins, R. H. 
Rufif, Kirkland, Guinn, W. 1'. Moore, 
Currie, P. right and .Murrah. The ten 
days of the Conference are assiduously 
devoted to discussing Y. M. C. A. work. 
The afternoons, however, are given to 
athletics. Messrs. Aloore, jMuUins, Kirk- 
land anfl Murrah were conspicuous for 
good work on the foot-ball team, com- 
posed of Alississippi men that overcame 
the men from Texas. The basket-ball 
pennant was won by the Millsaps rep- 

The Association work is the students" 
work, as will be seen by noticing" the plan 
of work. The President ajipnints seven 
chairmen of seven committees, composed 
each of three men. The first is the Ad- 
vertising Committee whose duty it is at 
the opening of each session to have dis- 
tributed among the students a hand-and- 
memorandum book with camjius in- 
formation, and to advertise special meet- 
ings. The work of the Reception Commit- 
tee is to see that an entertainment is had 
for the new students — a time wliL-n all 
arc made acquainted with each other. 
The Membership Committee meet each 
new man on the campus and indi\iduall\- 
urge him to join the Y. M. C. A.. The 
Association lias 117 members. Then 
there is the Finance Committee whose 
chairman is the Treasurer of the Asso- 


ciation ; they collect the yearly dues 
($1.50) from each member and raise 
sufficient funds for the deleg-ations and 
the minister who conducts the revival. 
The work of providing leaders for the 
meetings is delegated to the devotional 

Finally, the Missionary and Bible 
Study committees are important ; tlie 
first sees to it that the subject of mis- 
sions is enthusiastically presented to the 
students, that courses of study in mis- 
sions is enthusiastically presented to the 
students, that courses of study in mis- 
sions are offered, and that men are 
trained in SA'stematic giving to missions. 

At the opening of each session the Bible 
Study Committee earnestly solicits each 
student to take systematic work in Bible 
study. The courses are all so arranged 
as to allow a certain part of time to be 
spent in daily study: on Sunday rrom 
2 to 3 o'clock the grou-s meet to dis- 
cuss the lessons of the foregoing week. 
There are ninety-five men enrolled. 

A new feature this session has been 
the Y. M. C. A. DeT)artment in the .1/(7/- 
Sii/^s Collci^iaii. With .Air. J. R. Uright 
as the able editor, the principles of the 
Association have been clearly enunciated 
— common evils have been discussed and 
reports made. 


As Cynthia's image trembles 
In ocean billows wild, 
While she herself is peaceful 
And wanders o'er the sky, 
\Mien thou, belov'd, art tranquil- 
Thy image in my heart 
Is quivering, and trembles, 
Because so throbs niv heart.

(With apologies to Tennyson.) 


Half an inch, half an inch, 
Half an inch onward, 

All in the midst of Grads 
Sophs now had blundered. 

"Forward, you athletes made ! 

Charge for the goal!" he said; 

Into the midst of Grads 
Sophs now had blundered. 


'Forward, you athletes made !' 
Was there a man dismay 'd? 
Not tho' the fellows knew 

Quarter had fumbled : 
Too late to make reply, 
Too late to reason why, 
Nothing but tO' go and try ; 
Into the midst of Grads 

Xeven now stumbled. 


Flash'd all their arms now bare, 
Flash'd as they leaped in air 
Tackling the runners there. 
Charging the mighty, while 

All the School wonder'd ; 
Plunged with a mighty stroke 
Right thro' the line they Droke ; 
Sophs and Seniors 
Reel'd from this mighty stroke 

Shatter'd and sundered. 
Then they fell back, but not — 

Not the same number. 

Left end to right of them. 
Right end to left of them, 
Center in front of them 

Shouted and thunder'd ; 
Tackl'd by them, they fell. 
Boldly they struggl'd and well. 
Into the midst of Grads, 
Into the midst of hell 

Sophs now had blunder'd. 

Left end to right of them, 
Right end to left of them. 
Center in front of them 

Came on like thunder ; 
In the crash both "Prep," known 

And Bob Alullins. the full-back, 

They who had fought so well 
Came from the midst of deatn. 
Back from the midst of hell 
All that was left of them. 
Now nine in number. 


W'hen can their glory fade? 
O the wild rush they made ! 

Which left two and seven. 
Honor the rush they made ! 
Honor those athletes made. 

Noble clei'cn!

-^ --'--■ KA^~ 


The year just closing has Ijeen one of marked interest in Ath- 
letics, and this is the more to be noted as it lollows a year of un- 
usual depression. The Athletic Association, which is the center 
of all athletic activit}', has been peculiarly fortunate in having as its 
head Air. W. F. Murrah, who has succeeded in arousing enthusiasm 
to such a degree that the membership of the Association is nearly 
four times as large as last vear. 

The Gymnasium has been, for the greater part of the year, 
under the efficient care of Mr. Easterling. and it has not only proved 
a means of development and training, but has also been a place 
of pleasant resort, especially when bad weather prevented out- 
door sports. 

The interest in the first i)art of the ye.^r centered in the class 
contests for a silver loving cup ofl'ered to the winning foot-ball 
team. While the cup was won by the Senior Class team, with 
the Juniors a close second in the percentage column, every class 
developed foot-ball material that might have creditably represented 
the College. The interest manifested by whole College, and 
the enthusiastic attendance at each game vere new and most en- 
couraging features at ]\Iillsaps. 

The class contest for the basket-ball championship was not 
attended with the enthusiastic interest manifested during the foot- 
ball season, but Air. Gieger, the accomplished basket-ball manager, 
succeeded in developing good material, and the victory of the 
Junior team was well earned. 

Interest in base-ball is hard to arouse and maintain at Alillsaps, 
as the majorit}' of the capable base-ball men are mfected with the 
mania for seeing professional base-ball, and the opening of the 
League season finds on the bleacheries those men who should be 
in college practice. Teams were organized from each class, and 
while it was soon evident that the contest was narrowed down to 
the Freshman and Preparatory teams, interest was kept up till the 
end, when the Freshmen won the j)ennant offered by Mr. Alurrah 
with a percentage of looo. 


The Tennis Club, as well as the Athletic Association, felt the 
beneficial effects of a change of administration. The new president. 
Professor U. H. Aloore, has been full of enthusiasm, both on the 
courts and the platform, and has built up the most successful Ten- 
nis Club ever known here. Two new courts were made, and the 
interest has not flagged during the year. .\ liandicaj) tournament 
was held in the early spring, and Air. J. IS. Catching won the prize 
racket offered by Professor Moore. Another tournament was held 
on Patriots' Day, and a team representing the College found no 
difficulty in defeating the Jackson High School. 

The leading Athletic feature of Patriots' Day. the new spring- 
holiday at Millsaps, was a hotly contested game of base-ball be- 
tween the Freshman team and an all-AIillsaps team, ^^'ith the 
exception of one "swatfest" inning, the game was a very even con- 
test, and the enthusiasm of the "rooters" was kept at high tide. 
The all-.Millsaps team, however, was unable to recover from the 
disastrous first inning, and the Freshmen were allowed to enjoy 
the reception given by the Freshman co-eds vith a clear conscience 
and a light heart. 

The games this year have been mostly intcr-class games, but 
there have been a few exceptions. Earlv in the fall the Prepara- 
tory foot-ball team won an eas}- victory over the Jackson High 
School, and at the Students' Conference held at Ruston, Louisiana, 
in Christmas week, the Alillsaps men won tb.e basket-ball pennant. 
In the early spring Alanager Catching rook his victorious Fresh- 
man base-ball team over to Clinton, to play the Freshmen of Alis- 
sissippi College, and it is prudent not to iu'iuire too closely into 
the details of this latest \\'aterloo. 

Summing up the year we can say that wh.ile the new athletic 
field, so ardently desired, has not been secured, and while many of 
our promising athletes still waste their energy in watching League 
games, this has been a good year, and every indication points to a 
still brighter future.

A }oung" man of iwenty-six was sit- 
ting on tlie banks ul the Atchafala)"a 
gazing into its waters, whose natural 
beauty was lieightencd Ijy tlie rays of the 
setting sun, mingling its flickermg light 
with the shadows of the tall cottonwcjods 
growing along the banks. It was an 
evening in June, when no sound could 
be heard save the hum of the bees amung 
the clover, and the murmur of the wa- 
ters as they glided by on their way to 
the( lakes. The trees were covered with 
deep foliage and tlie levees, winding 
along either bank of the river, clothed 
in their summer costumes of green, with 
cattle grazing peacefully on them, looked 
as if they were built for an ornament 
rather than for a defence. Just behind 
the young man lay Broken Arrows, 
"The Milage of Roses." to the north 
and east of which were the vast, rich cot- 
ton fields stretching from the Atchafal- 
aya to the Mississippi, twenty miles dis- 
tant ; and to the south and west were 
deep forests of cottonwood and the 
"Golden Lakes" of the Atchafalaya. 

Ten years ago Orley Reed, for such 
was his name, entered Broken .\rrows 
for his first time ; friendless, an utter 
stranger, and with no capital except the 
memories of a Christian home and an 
unshaken faith in his mother's God. A 
few weeks before his arrival at Broken 
Arrows he had been called home on ac- 
count of the extreme illness of his fa- 
ther, who died shortly afterwards, leav- 
ing him and his little sister, Eunice, of 
fourteen summers, to face the world as 
best they could. When Orlev had set- 
tled his father's accounts he found that 
thev still had about one hundred dollars 

to their credit. This lie gave' to ins sis- 
ter and sent her off to college ; and he 
had been walking from village to village 
seeking employment, when he came to 
Broken Arrows, a small town in Louisi- 
ana. Here he found work in a grocery 
store which paid scarcely enough to keep 
his sister at college and pay his board. 
However, he secured a night school 
which enabled him to buy his clothes 
and occasionally a book to read. 

The young boy soon learned that 
his was not an easy task. When his sis- 
ter left for college, lie had kissed her 
g'ood-bye without shedding a single tear 
and had told her not to cry, "For I can 
make lots of money somewhere," he 
said ; but when the train which carried 
her away from him had passed out of 
sight, a feeling of utter loneliness came 
over him, and he almost repented that 
he had sent her away. Xor did his ex- 
perience with the world make his liurden 
any the lighter, and nothing but his 
dogged determination and his love for 
his sister enabled him to hold his own 
<luring his first few months at Broken 

r.ut Orley's prospects began to 
brighten after his first year in this little 
village. His diligence and his honesty 
in dealing with customers had so in- 
creased his employer's trade that he ad- 
vanced his salary more than once during 
the year. Nor had he won the respect 
and the esteem of the business world 
alone, but in social circles his congenial 
manner had made him many friends, 
among whom was I^eonard Gorden, a 
\oimg man from Ohio who had come to 
Broken Arrows to serve as pharmacist in 


his uncle's drug store. The two boys, both 
from distant cities, naturally sympathized 
witli each other, and fiom this sympathy 
lliere sprang up a iife-long friendship. 
Almost ever)- Suntlay afternoon, lor this 
was the only time which they had en- 
tirely to themselves, they might be seen 
strolling along the banks of the Atcna- 
falaya, stopping here and there to gaze 
with rapture upon the beautiful scenery 
which Xature has furnished so abun- 
daiuiy in the Southland, and especially 
in this particular spot, "where reigns 
perpetual summer" ; or they loved also 
to be out on the Golden Lakes of the 
Atchafalaya in their canoe, one reading 
aloud while the other held the oar, which 
he used occasionally to keep the wind 
from driving the boat into the bushes 
which grew along the shore. 

Thus four years passed by, unevent- 
ful so far as the world could sec, yet 
full of change for the boy. He was no 
longer a clerk in a grocery store ; he 
and Leonard had giine into the mercan- 
tile business together and were dding 
business on a larger scale than their 
former employers, for their friends 
transferred their trade from the old 
firm to the new one. Orley's contact 
with the world had changed the open- 
hearted boy to a keen financier. Xor 
had he gained all and lost nothing in 
the transformation ; his dealings with 
shrewd traders, some of them unprinci- 
pled, had sharpened his business ability, 
l)ut that acuteness of moral perception, 
which enabled him to distinguish the 
good from the evil, had been blunted 
by the same process. The old delight 
in the beauties of Nature and the sim- 
pler pleasures of his earlier davs had 
been smothered, and the enterpiising 
spirit of commercialism was enthroning" 
itself in his heart, teaching him to be- 
lieve that a man's life consists in the 
abundance of the things which he pos- 

At this critical period there came 

something into his life which was des- 
tined to save him from becoming a mere 
money-making machine and toi relight 
the purer fires in his soul. Eunice had 
finisned her college course and had come 
to liroken Arrows to live with Orley, 
ij.inging with her Freda Downing, one 
of her school companions to spend part 
of the summer i with her. This little 
tiower of a girl, with her dark hair and 
brciwn eyes, which sparkled with fun 
or ffashed with intelligence as the occa- 
sion demanded, was the "something" 
which was to bring about a transforma- 
tion in the young man's life. 

Orley had determined to make his 
sister's friend enjoy her visit as soon as 
he learned that she was coming, and 
alter meeting her he had no desire to 
change his plans. Each afternoon he 
managed to spend an hour or two with 
"the girls," as he and Leonard usually 
s])oke of them. One evening they would 
spend fishing on the Golden Lakes, per- 
haps the ne.xt riding over the beautiful 
waters of the Atchafalaya, the girls 
calling a halt occasionally that they might 
pluck the wild flowers or gather the 
mosses which grew so abundantly at the 
water's edge. I^eonard was nearly al- 
ways with them. He proved to be thor- 
oughly capable of entertaining Eunice 
and ( )rley's attentions were devoted to 
Freda. ft was during these hours of 
companionshi|_i that the young school 
girl, wdiose every thought and wdiose 
whole being was as pure as the wild 
flowers which he gathered for her, was 
unconsciouslv leading him away from 
those things which had threatened to 
destroy his better self. 

The environments of these tw'O young 
people had been very different. Freda's 
father was a rich real estate man, and 
his home in Atlanta, Georgia, was one 
of lu.xurv and refinement; Orley's father 
was a small apple-grower near a little 
town in Illinois. Freda knew nothing 
of the world in which she lived except 


its flowers, its books, and its sunshine ; 
Orley had seen much of the hard and 
thorny side of hfe. Yet there was some- 
thing in each Hfe whicli drew the otlier 
to it. 

Orley hatd not reaUzed how piuch 
Freda had become to liim until the time 
was nearing for her to return home, and 
even then he dared not tell her of his 
affection for her. "What right," he 
thought, have I, an unpolished, unedu- 
cated village merchant, to ask her to 
share my lot with me ?" Poor boy ! 
How little he knew of a woman's heart, 
especially of this one, which felt be- 
neath the rough exterior of his life the 
finer and nobler principles of true man- 

The loneliness which C)rley felt when 
Freda had gone home was made the less 
tolerable by the unintentional neglect of 
Eunice and Leonard, who, in theii new 
delight in each other's company, had 
left him to spend his leisure moments 
alone. Orley, however, was not resent- 
ful, for he understood; and furthermore, 
he wished no greater blessing for his 
sister than that she should become the 
wife of Leonard Gorden. Accordingly, 
when they told him a few weeks later 
that they were to be married soon, he 
congratulated them from the depths of 
his heart and advised that the\- fix the 
date of their wedding as early as possible. 

These are 'the eventJs forming the 
first epoch in Orley's life. We will now 
follow him through the events leading 
up to where we find him on the banks 
of the Atchafalaya. .-Vfter Leonard's 
and Eunice's marriage, which took place 
two months later, Orley decided to leave 
Broken Arrows and complete his educa- 
tion, which had been hindered by the 
death of his father ; and as he had been 
at the University of Chicago when his 
father died, he now thought it best to 
return and take up his work where he 
had left it ofif. There were two reasons 
wh}' he desired to complete his educa- 

tion : first he wished to fit himself for 
larger usefulness, and second, he was 
determined to remove the barriers which 
he felt that educational ditierences had 
placed between him and Freda Downing, 
Accordingly, a few weeks later, business 
ties severed, after an atfectionate leave 
of his sister and friends, he found him- 
self on board a New Orleans steamer, 
the first part of his journey begun. The 
sun, rising from the cotton fields in the 
east, was bathing in golden light the tops 
of the tall forest in the west ; and fall- 
ing a half hour later upon the lakes of 
the Atchafalaya, it turned them into seas 
of shining gold. Orley stood on the 
deck of the steamer gazing with tender 
sadness on the magnificent scenery and 
the familiar objects as he passed them by. 
Here stood a live oak under whose wide- 
spreading branches he had rested from 
his weary walk on his arrival in Broken 
Arrows ; there under those cottonwoods 
lay a large stone where he and Freda 
had sat on the evening before she left. 
How he recalled every word of hers and 
the unspoken words which had trembled 
on his own lips, but which he dared not 
utter. Living over the past, he looked 
again upon the Golden Lakes, The Mi- 
lage of Roses, and the green cotton 
fields ! then he turned and \\alked ito 
his state room, his eyes half blinded 
with tears. 

The same genial nature which had 
made him loved in Broken Arrows 
brought Orley many friends in Chicago, 
and it was here that he became convinced 
of his life-work. The need of social re- 
form in the great cities and the call for 
a man who would devote his life to it 
appealed to him, and through all of his 
college davs the solution of this prob- 
lem was the one dominating purpose of 
his life. It would be interesting to fol- 
low Orlev through the stages of his de- 
velopment at the L^niversity, and see the 
eflfect of the different influences which 
bore upon his life, but we must pass 


over the five years of University lite to 
wliere we find Orley, now at the age of 
twenty-six, on the banks of the Atcha- 
falaya on this evening in June. 

L)rley liad completed his education 
and had returned to Broken Arrows to 
look once again upon the scenes of his 
earlier days before entering into the field 
which he had chosen for his life-work. 
Although many changes had been made 
in the town since he left it five years 
ago, there were a few things that had 
remained the same ; his sister's face had 
lost none of its freshness and she seemed 
as far removed from care as the little 
boy of four and ihe little girl of two 
who called her mother ; and the Atchafa- 
laya which had woven into his very soul 
the music of its rippling waters, seemed 
as eternal in its beauty as the Lrod who 
created it. As the evening began to 
wear away, Orley stole away from his 
friends that he might listen to the soft 
nuirmuring of the waters and dream of 
the past. But there was an expression 
of sadness on his face which changed 
to one of deeper tenderness as the mem- 
ories of the past came back to him. No 
wonder that he looked sad, for he knew 
that before another sun would rise in 
the east, he and his beautiful river, with 
all its sacred memories, would be niany 
miles apart. 

But it was not his love for the river 
which caused the expression on his face 
to deepen to one of tenderness, but its 
association with the one who had taught 
his eyes to see its beauty again, when for 
a time it had been hid from him. It is 
true he had been with her only a few 
times, but how those few times had 
changed his whole life ! It was she who 
walking along the banks of the river, 
had stopped where he now sat to call 
his attention to the beauties of the scen- 
ery around them, and looking through 
her eyes he had learned to see things 
as she saw them. It was while sitting 
with her on that same stone that he had 

determined to win her love and make 
her his wife, but he had not dared to 
speak to her until he had gotten his ed- 
ucation. Thus he mused; "Only last 
week Eunice received a letter from her 
which stated that she and her father- 
would be in Baton Rouge some time 
soon, and that she would come over to 
Broken Arrows to spend a day while her 
father was attending to some business, 
lint why did she not answer my letter? 
Is it possible that she did not receive 
it? I can find out by telling Eunice, but 
I won't. I can take care of my own 

Such were the thoughts that were 
passing through Orley's mind as he sat 
there alone. But presently his attention 
was drawn to a large steamboat which 
landed about a quarter of a mile above 
him. He saw ai woman get ofl^ the boat 
and start down the bank of the river in 
liis direction, but if she was going- to 
town why did she not take a cab instead 
of following this round-about path ? The 
boats generally remained an hour or 
more at Broken Arrows landing, and 
passengers often took advantage oi this 
delay to see some of the scenery along 
the banks of the river, which was noted 
for its beauty. So thought Orley in the 
present instance and was soon again in 
his deep reverie. The woman did not 
see him, for he was sitting on the oppo- 
site side of two trees between which 
some fishermen had hung a tarpaulin to 
protect their fire from the breeze while 
tliey were cooking their dinner. Nor did 
he think of her again until he heard a 
light step and looking around, he saw a 
girl standing between him and the wa- 
ter's edge, looking down upon the wild 
jessamine which grew in tangles at her 
feet. She was dressed in a neat gray 
traveling costume, and though he could 
not see her facef distinctly, there was 
something about her features that caused 
him to think that he had seen her be- 
fore. Presentl" she turned her face a 


little further m his direction and he saw 
a tear glistening in her eye as she said 
in a low voice, "Oh, Orley, if you had 
only spoken then !" 

He knew her voice and saw before 
him the object of all his thoughts. For 
a moment he could not speak or move, 
so great was his emotion. Then recov- 
ering himself he arose and stepped soft- 
ly to her side and said : , 

"Freda, I can speak yet if it is not 
too late." 

She could not answer him, for her 
surprise was even greater than his. 

"Sit down here, Freda," he said, 
leading her to the stone where he had 
been sitting, "I have something to tell 

you." He sat down by her side and 
took her hand in his own. 

"Five years ago we sat here together 
and it was then that I first learned to 
love you. Through all the years that 
have passed I have longed for your com- 
panionship. Tell me that you love me, 
Freda, that you will never leave me 

"1 love you," she said simply. 

Xo sound could be heard to break 
the stillness of the hour except the soft 
murmur of the waters, for the hum of 
the bees among the clover had ceased, 
tlic sun had gone down into the lakes 

in tlie west, leaving the 
the evening star.
