St. Andrew's College Review
At least, from the school-bay's point of view, Dame Nature has
been exceedingly unkind ; she has not humoured us with hale and
vigorous weather. With soft ice for a day or so, and then the mer-
cury rising to a height which melted everything, making the rink
present the appearance of a pond, we have experienced the mildest
of winters. Apart from two meagre falls of snow which by no
means made tobogganing or skiing possible, the landscape has not
this year been in the clutches of Jack Frost. As a result, outdoor
exercise has been constrained, and we have been prone to grum-
ble. On the other hand, our teams were able to have practice hours
at the Arena, and have completed a season of which we are justly
Already the signs of real spring are here, and with eagerness
we look forward to the fast-approaching summer term. Realizing
that it is a time of glorious weather, with long bright days in which
we can enjoy the charm of out-door freedom, we will return from
the welcome Easter holidays with added zest.
The Review takes this opportunity of mentioning that Dr. Mac-
donald completed in February his twenty-first year as headmaster
of St. Andrew's College. In those years the school has witnessed
many important changes and a marvellous development. He as-
sumed office in the Yonge Street building under rather adverse
conditions, and with a school of about forty boys. To such a foun-
dation he added a zest and personal influence which has been largely
responsible for the growth and present prosperity of the college.
After many successful years in the Rosedale building, we were
obliged to move to Knox College. One can hardly realize the many
difficulties of such a task, but when one considers that the com-
plete change was made without the loss of a single day in the ses-
12 ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
sion, it is apparent that the headmaster's leadership was an im-
portant factor. The two years' sojourn and the subsequent return
to the old buildings were further evidences of his skilful control.
The boys of the school are aware that they have in Dr. Mac-
donald a headmaster whose personality compels esteem, and who is,
in all that the term implies, a man. In the years to come may he
ever be conscious of our desire to offer him our respectful co-
Having witnessed a term, such as this has been, one cannot help
noticing that on dreary afternoons there is an increasing num-
ber of boys who seem seldom to experience the luxury of reading.
They are content with idly loafing, and constantly watch for an
opportunity to interfere. They belong to the class which is always
looking for trouble, and as might be expected, easily find it. Are
they not missing one of the most profitable pastimes of boyhood?
There are those who are not even familiar with Tom Sawyer! and
among the higher heroes, they are strangely friendless. The won-
drously woven plot of a good novel is one of the worlds they have
not explored. Works by authors accepted as standard are unknown
to them beyond the mysterious titles.
On a gloomy evening, when the weather is inclement, the ideal
companion is the character which comes forth from the covers of
a book, and acts for us with vividness made possible by a master
pen. Human company is" not always possible, and in such a plight
the boy who cannot enter the storyland of books must needs be.
As the years flit by and we enter the autumn of life, think how
enriched he is who takes with him the unobtrusive friends who
never forsake, and who at all times are willing to offer sincere com-
panionship. When one considers the richness of the English lan-
guage, and the resulting legion of books on every subject written
by the greatest writers of any country, does he not realize the won-
derful heritage that is his in an English tongue? Surely one would
do well to avail himself of the wonderful opportunities presented in
F. Roper Dayment.
The marriage ceremony in the Far East differs greatly from
the marriage of the West. Instead of an acquaintanceship ripening
into affection, the whole affair in China is arranged by a profes-
sional "go-between" or "match-maker," who makes it her business
(it is always a woman) to know all the marriageable young people
of the neighbourhood. When a young man becomes of an age when
his parents consider that he should marry, they go to a match-
maker and state their case. The match-maker goes over her list
of suitable young ladies, chooses one, and then takes the case to her
parents (the prospective bride's) who, if favourably inclined to-
wards the terms, consult their family soothsayer as to how the
compact will turn out, and, if this man is agreeable, the affair is
The prospective groom now has two cards made upon which are
painted dragons, the symbol of fidelity, and also on these cards are
complete particulars of the agreement. These cards are bound
with red silk cord. One of the cards he presents to the bride.
The use of the silk cord has a very interesting legend connected
with it. It appears that about the year 618 B.C., in the days of the
Chow dynasty, there lived in the town of Sung, one called Haw Ki,
who one night came upon an old man sitting in front of a tea house
reading a huge book by the light of the moon. "In this book,"
said the old man to How Ki, "are all the marriages for years to
come, and with this cord" — producing a red silk cord — "shall the
mated couples be bound together. Now, your wife is at present in
the house of an old woman who sells vegetables at the North Gate."
How Ki immediately hurried to the house of the old woman, where
he found an exceedingly ugly girl baby, and was so alarmed that he
hired a coolie to kill the child. Many years later, How Ki was pre-
sented with a beautiful young wife by the governor. He noticed
she always wore a rose over her forehead, and asked her the reason
why, to which she replied : "Several years ago, when I was living
with an old vegetable woman, I was out walking one day, when a
ruffian rushed at me and made the scar on my forehead, which I
always cover by a rose." Then did How Ki realize that Fate could
not be cheated.
The arrangements for the marriage made, a few months
elapse, during which the interchange of presents takes place until
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
the great day arrives. As yet the groom has not even seen the
bride. She leaves her father's house in her carriage, and is met
about half-way by the groom who takes possession of her carriage.
This performance is a last remnant of the possession by capture of
ancient times. In Northern China the custom is even more pro-
nounced, and is carried out by having the groom chase the bride
on horseback for a reasonable distance. Another variation is to
have the groom chase the bride through the rooms and halls of her
father's house while old women playfully try to trip, and generally
hinder him. Arriving at the house of the groom's father they seat
themselves in front of the family altar, each endeavouring to sit on
the fringe of the other's coat; the one succeeding, it is said, will be
ruler of the household.
The next half hour is devoted to sacrifices and prayers at the
altar, at the conclusion of these the ceremony is considered to be
ended and the guests give themselves up to feasting and merry-
making. Blake M. Wilson.
RECKSS HOUR AT THE TICK
THE CACED BIRD
I look out of my turret window and see the rushing motors on
the boulevard without; gaiety is in the air, but the heart in my
bosom palpitates not with joy, nay! with sorrow — I am gated.
This verb may not be familiar to all, but it is very much like C. B.
which a disorderly soldier receives. It means that a poor school-
boy is actually confined to the college over the week-end and forced
to report each hour to a master.
The Man in the Iron Mask led a life of hilarity compared to my
unhappy existence this day. I have done nothing, only skipped
down town so that I could write a composition on the Royal Bank
Building, neglecting to get leave or to consult a master as to the
propriety of such a course. I contemplate the vivid world without
— and suicide — at the same time. If I committed suicide, gatings
would be abolished as a barbarous practice ; but what benefit would
that be to me? No, I will entice some other gated person with less
intellect than myself (probably very hard to find) to commit
suicide, and I shall reap the benefits of his fatal expedient.
I wonder how I shall spend my time. I might wash and shave,
but that is not my idea of amusement. I might whistle to girls as
they toddle by (if the master is out of earshot) or I might study!
The last is the intention of every gated person, but it seldom ma-
terializes because the only chaps who have the will-power to study
are never gated. Gating is a manifestation of the struggle between
authority and the pitiful objects on which authority is directed. I
am one of those pitiful objects. If Shakespeare were alive to-day,
with gatings as his theme, and one of my school fellows as a hero,
he could write such a tragedy as would make "Hamlet" look like
Sometimes a kind-hearted master sends you on an errand for
bird-seed or pea-nuts, and gives you a little fresh air between re-
ports. Still, I swear now that I shall never skip out again, but
next week temptation will come in the shape of Hink Russell, and
next Saturday I will be poking a tear-stained countenance within
the Masters' Common Room and saying, "Report, Sir."
K. B. Carson.
It hangs upon my bed-room wall, that old sword about which
I am going to relate a short history. There is nothing pretentious
about its hilt, no jewels set there in wondrous device, nor inlaid
gold upon the blade. It is just an old cavalry sabre, with leather
scabbard bound with steel, old, worn, and shaggy, not from age
alone, but rather from the life it led at the waist of its master.
The blade is nicked and scarred, not from children playing war
and charging barricades of iron cots in their nurseries, but from
having been crossed in deadly combat with opposing steel. It has
been relegated to many olcl store-rooms throughout the decades of
its retired existence, but when thus treated, it has been at the
hands of those ignorant of its birthright, or if knowing, heeding
not. Now it has returned to its heritage, commanding respect as
it hangs in state over a silhouette of its master of one hundred
years ago ; and as I sit in the gathering gloom of the short winter
twilight it seems to me I hear it whisper of deeds of valour wit-
nessed by it, deeds which have been carved by men in the everlast-
ing rock of time.
Yes, that old sword stands as a link between the present and the
past ; that uncertain time when Napoleon with his legions advanced
over the Pyrenees with intent to crush the Spanish kingdom. It
was then that the skill of that military genius, Sir John Moore was
summoned to cope with the onrushing flood of invaders, and not
in vain. Military genius is useless without the human power and
will to carry out its plans, and Sir John had these assets, together
with valiant men who had implicit faith in their commander.
The march of the little British army to Astorga to cross the
path of the advancing three hundred thousand, and its steady re-
treat on Corunna gave ample room for heroism and proof of worth
both in man and blade. Many fell under the test, but a brave rem-
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 17
nant survived. At Corunna no ships awaited the fever-stricken
British forces, and again that war-weary force had to
turn about and fight. It was a splendid fight; shot and
shell hurled from unseen barricades fell like a metal rain.
But the dark clouds of defeat were just breaking when fate exacted
her price. It was at the very dawn of victory when Sir John Moore
received his death wound. He died happy in the realization that
the day was not lost, and that throughout his career he had fought
a good fight, the thought which brings more contentment to the
mind than any communion or prayers given at the bedside for the
believed redemption of the soul. There was to be no military
funeral for him; his desire was to be buried in the ramparts of
Corunna at the dead of night.
Picture, if you can, a squad of sad and weary soldiers wending
their way towards the outskirts of a shell-torn city carrying be-
tween them the lifeless body of their beloved commander, the lurid
light from bursting shells, the misty moon-light through the smoke
and the rays of a solitary lantern, to reveal the way.
"We buried him darkly at the dead of night
The sods with our bayonets turning."
But now through the gloom, as the last faint streaks of red and
gold have faded from the western sky, giving place to the cold,
dark grey of the fast-falling night, where a few minutes before
there dwelt in all its glory a superb winter's sunset, and as the
night takes on the mantle of storm I imagine the scene which the
old sabre witnessed on a similar night five score years and ten
before, when a great man's life went through the same changes
that the sky has just undergone.
The last scene in the drama of the sword's owner was
staged on the moors of Northern England, the actor, a
major of the British forces in Spain. Shortly after his
return from the burial of his commander he had received
his seventh wound while riding along the lines endeavour-
ing to cheer his men. His faithful horse was shot from be-
neath him, and at the same moment the rider was shot through the
breast. The following day he was transported to England, where
his wife and family awaited him forty miles from the port of his
disembarkation. The journey was attempted by coach, but the
jarring proved too great an agony for him to bear, his wound
having become inflamed with exposure and neglect, and he aban-
doned the stage and set his face against the chilling blast. The gale
ST. ANDREWS COLLEGE REVIEW
hurled in the face of the traveller a sleet, stinging and blinding, but
he must fight on till the end, until the haven of rest is reached,
whether it was to be his old home, with its loving welcome, warmth
and care, or eternal rest in the arms of death.
Weak from the long drawn-out campaign, soul-weary, wounded
and sick, he staggered, stumbled but fought on. This was his last
fight, and he was facing it alone. The old sabre hung at his waist,
helpless to aid him here, in fact, it was rather a hindrance to his
progress, but it had been his friend, faithful and true, in many
other fights. Why should it be discarded now? The bond between
them was too great, and it remained at his side. The storm con-
tinued in its fury, but on, on, on he struggled against it and against
forces which nature was raising up to defeat him. But defeat
was not to find an easy victim for there was a goal to be reached
that night. In spite of his will he was losing; .the little strength
which remained to him was fast ebbing, and then all drifted into
oblivion. He awoke, a sense of silence filled the air, the storm was
abating, and in the distance a light was gleaming like a star re-
vealing the pathway to happiness and peace. He knew it to be his
guiding star and with an effort born of despair he raised himself
and struggled forward till his long-fought-for goal was reached —
Major died two days later. His last campaign with the
elements had proved too hard a task for his weakened powers of
endurance. But there remains to us a relic, the old sabre, a silent
reminder of his noble career.

Saint Vincent, one of the British West Indies, lies a little south
of Barbados. It has a population of about 50,000, of which about
32,000 are white, 10,000 black, 7,000 coloured, and 1,000 East In-
dian coolies. There are also a few Caribs of somewhat mixed blood,
the aboriginal Caribs having been deported to British Honduras in
1797. Kingstown, the capital, situated on a bay at the south-
western extremity of the island, has a population of about 7,000.
The climate is healthful, the coolest time of the year being from
December till May; the wet season is from August till November!
The average annual rainfall is 111.82 inches. Sugar and arrow-
root are the principal products. Other articles of export are cocoa,
cotton, spices, fruit, vegetables, live stock and poultry.
Saint Vincent is divided by a high mountain ridge, running
from north to south, at the northern end is the Soufriere, which
rises to about 3,000 feet in the centre of the island, and dominates
both the leeward and windward districts. The Soufriere has two
craters, the old and the new, the latter lying south-east of the for-
mer having been formed by the eruption of 1812. The craters are
divided by an exceedingly knife-like ridge, along which it requires
a cool head to creep. The old crater, three miles in circumference,
contains a lake, some several hundred feet below the edge, and over
which clouds and vapour constantly hover. The new crater, smaller
than its neighbour, but more rugged and precipitous, looks, as it
has been graphically described, like "an opening into the great in-
fernal regions." At the leeward base of the Soufriere lie the
estates of Wallibou and Richmond, also Morne Ronde, the settle-
ment of the Caribs, and to the south-west, the small town of
Chateaubellair, while on the windward side are the great sugar
estates of the island, 'and to the extreme north, the arrowroot
estates of Owia and Fancy. Almost opposite to Chateaubellair, on
the windward coast, is Georgetown, the second town of Saint Vin-
cent. The Soufriere may be said to have at least one-third of the
island within its range of possible destruction. Premonitory signs
of eruption had been given since February, 1901, when shocks of
earthquakes and deep reverberations were felt ; but as they passed
away, little attention was given to them. These warnings were re-
peated as soon as the Mont Pelee volcano at Martinique showed
activity, and increased in force until May 6th, when all doubts as
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
to their true meaning were dissipated. At 3 p.m. on that day huge
columns of smoke were seen from Chateaubellair to issue from the
old crater, followed by streams of flame. So serious was the situa-
tion, that several officials were sent from the capital, Kingstown,
15 miles away, to report upon what was happening, and they found
the mountain in full eruption. Early on the following morning
the eruption ceased, and left the surrounding country in gloom.
So far the windward side had escaped with little damage. Shortly
after eight the volcano cnce more burst into activity, its full force
being experienced from one o'clock to three o'clock p.m. For more
than 400 miles the sound as of heavy cannonading at sea was heard
throughoutthe West Indies. In Kingstown lamps had to be lighted
from four o'clock in the afternoon, and ashes fell in Barbados,
which lies about 100 miles to the windward of Saint Vincent. On
the windward side the estate works at Tourama, Orange Hill, and
Lot 14 were completely destroyed; on the leeward side Wallibou
was covered up, and the chimney at Richmond was the sole sign of
A Mansion House Fund was at once started in London for the

THE COMMITTEE OF PI BLIC SAFETY.
A DAY AND A NIGHT; OR, THE ADVENTURES OF
The trials of a boarder, as most of you are aware, are supposed
to begin at 7.15 a.m. ; but more usually that happy mortal remains
in blissful slumber until the sound of the Breakfast Bell disturbs
his calm repose.
With the Breakfast Bell comes a short battle as to who shall
close the windows, and then all is in a turmoil. A rush to the
wash-room, a lick-and-a-promise there, with usually the ears and
neck utterly ignored. Then a short skirmish with clothes, etc., and
a hundred yard dash, which, as a rule, terminates in your tripping
over the laces of one of your boots, and lands you in a graceful
sprawl on the floor just as the dining room door is shut in your
face. When the now unhappy victim picks himself up and enters
the dining room on tiptoe, the watchful master has his eye on the
door and all hope of gaining his seat without detention vanishes.
Breakfast over, the beds must be made and the rooms cleaned
up. The boots have to be placed in iine on a shelf and all papers,
and the remains of the feed of the preceding night, done away with.
At 9 o'clock a kindly master visits each room and soaks you a few
odd hours for that pin on the floor, that crease in your bedspread,
or that boot that is one-sixteenth of an inch out of its place.
When he departs he leaves a sad group of boys behind him, com-
paring notes, in order to see who has the most detention, and plan-
ning how they can best get out of it.
The roll is called in your class room at 9.15, and many quite,
original excuses for lateness are offered to the form master. This
is followed by morning prayers and then school. Many wish that
all schools could be blown into space, and I agree with them, but
I am sure we should regret this wish in later years. Very little
can be said about school as it is a very painful subject in more than
one way. At recess there is a mad rush for the Tuck Shop, the only
place where one can eat without getting detention for being late or
making a noise. After school, the time between 3.30 and 5.00 is
usually spent in some class room writing lines, or doing work for
some master, but occasionally, there is some time left for other
forms of sport.
At 6.15 you have dinner and soon after study commences. The
two hours of study are usually spent in unspeakable agony. Vari-
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
ous forms of amusement are attempted, from asking the master
foolish questions to seeing how much detention you can amass in
one evening. The last half-hour is usually spent in counting the
minutes and seconds till the bell rings. At 9.15 the bell rings and
you have evening prayers where fellows are usually reminded of
certain engagements with the house-master, or of certain rules
After prayers you then retire to your rooms and lights are put
out at 10.00; but that does not mean that you go to sleep then.
Sometimes friendly (?) visits are made by the inmates of some
other room and somebody emerges a little the worse for wear.
After a while all is quiet and you become dead to the world. Thus
ends a Perfect Day.
E. R. McLelland.
THE HAT TRICK.
WHAT THE MOON SAW.
It was June, and the sun, as if reluctant to rest after such a
long day of brightness, was slowly moving westward. Gradually
the shadows were lengthening, the images of the oaks on the face
of the old beaver pond became colour schemes of green and gold,
and soon all that remained of the ball of fire, that had ridden tri-
umphant in the sky all day, was a blood-red glow far out to the
An hour afterwards, as if daylight was coming again, a bright-
ness appeared in the east, and the moon peeping up over the jagged
top of Old Sugar Loaf Mountain, bathed the New England hills in
its silvery glow. The oaks became patterns of midnight blue and
silver, while the beaver pond, long since unfamiliar with its orig-
inal builders, was a smooth sheet of burnished silver. Nothing
marred the peace and beauty of the scene. Far down in the valley,
the farm houses nestled as if in some great cradle, and up in the
hills the trees standing straight and sentinel-like wove bright pat-
terns on the ground beneath them.
To look at the smiling face of the The Man in the Moon, one
can never tell the various tragedies, or comedies, he looks down
upon. To-night, as he floated serenely through his canopy of clear,
clean blue, his impartial eye saw a little woodland scene enacted,
which, although in itself is very common, has not to the denizens of
the woods, lost its terrible meaning. It was in a little glade on the
south side of one of the hills where a bright spot was formed in
the dark shadows of the sighing evergreens. This space at first
seemed to be devoid of life, but to the Man in the Moon, as he
floated on, it presented a scene full of activity. Under the thickest
of the evergreens his rays quickly discovered something of interest.
It was a family of cotton taijs, making a first acquaintance with the
great world they were to live in. Leading them was the nervous
mother who, raised on her capable hind feet, was wig-wagging her
long ears listening for the first signs of danger that would harm
her precious offspring. To the casual observer there would have
seemed to be no danger, but the Man in the Moon could have told
him differently; he knew that the old stump down the slope was
not all stump, he could have told you that closer inspection would
reveal the top stub to be old Kimoskees, the owl. He also would
have informed anybody who could have questioned him that a fox

was skulking along on the other side of the ridge, to say nothing
of a bloodthirsty weasel coming up wind in search of food.
Suddenly, out of the silence there came a great booniing, it
seemed to have no definite source, and yet to pervade everywhere.
A significant silence followed it; a great disaster seemed to be
pending. The stub of the stump had suddenly vanished, and over
the top of the trees, Kimoskees was heading towards the glade,
where the baby cotton tails, with much leaping and thumping, were
sampling the sweet bits of clover of which their fastidious palates
approved most highly. While yet a great distance away the Moon
saw the owl change his route and head for the big evergreen which
sheltered the rabbit family. He flew with the noiselessness of a bit
of wind-blown thistle down, nothing heralded his coming. The
Moon cast his shadow over the glade to warn his victims, but too
late, a swoop and a squeak, and the rabbit family scurrying back
to the shelter of their brier patch was bereft of one of its members.
Still up in his seat of vantage the Moon sailed on, his smile not
one whit changed. Perhaps he realized that old truth, "The
strong \all prey on the weak ;" or perhaps -he may have favoured
the o . . Or, again, maybe he doesn't think anything — who knows ?
ALL READY FOR MORNING INSPECTION.
UNCLE TOM'S CABIN.
Uncle Tom's Cabin, the stupendous tragedy, with Caroline
Heaveaway playing the role of the child, Eva. See the finest spe-
cial scenery that eyes of mortal man ever gazed upon! See Lew
Prune, as Lawyer Marks, screamingly funny ! Beware of the fero-
cious bloodhounds ! ! So say the hand-bills distributed by a dys-
peptic-looking crook who has been stopping for the past week at
the Seaside Hotel.
The great day comes and the company arrives in town. First,
we see a down-at-the-heels negro porter, who plays the role of
Uncle Tom; then, a long-nosed tramp with the appearance of an
undertaker, this is the famous comedian, Lew Prune (Lawyer
Marks) ; then appear several sometime inmates of an old lacjies'
home. The eldest of these ladies is Caroline Heaveaway, fifty-six
if she's a day ; she takes the part of Little Eva. The manager of
the company, a corpulent creature, goes to the box car of the train
and leads out the three blood hounds ; they were old when Harriet
Beecher Stowe wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin. The whole company
piles into the town hack and is driven to the Seaside Hotel.
The next day comes the great parade ; all the youngsters strive
to get places in it, and thus have the honour of wearing one of the
moth-eaten, ex-military coats, or to lead one of the fierce, but
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
thoothless, blood hounds. Lawyer Marks, with a trombone, and
Uncle Tom, with a big drum, lead the procession which marches all
around the town with banners inscribed, "Uncle Tom's Cabin in
tthe Town Hall to-night." There is great excitement when one of
the dogs develops hydrophobia, and thus ends the parade.
A perspiring audience awaits the raising of the curtain. Fin-
ally it rises, disclosing what is supposed to be an aristocratic south-
ern home, with Uncle Tom dusting the stuffed owl in the corner ;
the southern aristocrat (who looks like a bar-tender) sips a mint
julep from a pickle bottle, and discusses with a slave-buyer the sale
of Uncle Tom. The whole scene conveys a sense of opulence, from
the table (which the Sons and Daughters of the Morning use at
their monthly meeting) to the hump-backed arm-chair borrowed
from the Seaside Hotel.
Soon comes the scene on the ice-strewn river, and Eliza makes
her sensational dash for freedom. She skips across the ice pur-
sued by the relentless bloodhounds while she tenderly carries little
Harry (a whisky bottle wrapped in a piece of rag) in her arms.
Her escape draws tremendous applause from every member of the
Uncle Tom arrives at the house of St. Clair, and Little Eva and
Topsy make their appearance. Topsy claims that she wasn ? t born
but "just growed." Judging by her appearance she began to grow
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 27
about the time of the wars of the Roses. She shocks by her girlish
antics, St. Clair's New England cousin. But now tears dim every
eye as Little Eva is dying with Uncle Tom sobbing at her feet (size
ten) . Then she dies but, unfortunately, in her ascent to heaven the
ropes go wrong and Caroline Heaveaway's one hundred and eighty
pounds does untold damage to the stage floor. The curtain falls
upon a scene of wild disorder.
Now follows the great scene in the slave market where Uncle
Tom stands up on a biscuit box while the manager of the company,
armed with a tack hammer, acts as auctioneer. Simon Legree
stands around cracking a long black whip and finally buys poor old
The scenes on Legree's plantation are very sad, and the town
undertaker wishes that he could have been alive and in business at
that time for Uncle Tom, Little Eva and St. Clair all die within
the short space of fifteen minutes. The play ends and the people
leave while the manager counts the admission money to see whether
it will pay his hotel bill.
The dramatic critic for the Weekly Bugle wrote as follows :
"Huge crowds attend first night presentation of Uncle Tom's Cabin
at the Town Hall !" Thus read the headlines. "Caroline Heave-
away, the noted juvenile actress, well known to the play-goers of
our town for the past half century, was up to her usual wonder-
ful form. The German accent of Uncle Tom, who once lived in
Cincinnati, was greatly admired by all.
"A regrettable incident was Hank Beavan's demand for the re-
funding of his money, which he received from Manager Cookit (in
order to prevent a riot) . This was the only incident to mar the en-
joyment of the evening. Dr. Killem is attending Miss Heaveaway
who nearly broke her neck in the second act. On account of this
incident the company will put on 'Hamlet' to-morrow night and
later 'Ten Nights in a Bar-room,' unless Miss Heaveaway recovers."
K. B. Carson.
In one corner of a large art gallery the artists have a quiet little
room, which is away from the noise of the surging crowds. Here
they exhibit their "thumb-box"pictures and often gather for tea
and conversation. If you break away from the massive portraits,
large canvasses, and historical tapestries of the main gallery, and
seek out this restful spot, you will enjoy the smaller pictures, and
discover that there are untold possibilities in the thumb-box.
This quaint room is not only furnished in the most attractive
style, but has a friendly atmosphere, as if it invited you to stop
a moment and catch the spirit of the artists. There are long tables
with current magazines on art as well as sets of books dealing with
the technical side of the subject. Clustered around are numerous
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
Windsor chairs, and over yonder, a many-cushioned divan. That
silverware is the tea-service used when they meet to discuss each
other's work, and offer suggestions for improvement. Notice, too,
that brass samovar, with the curious tap and vertical chimney.
At one side, nodding her head to every visitor, sits a dear old
lady in charge of the exhibition. Her snowy hair and genial smile
are themselves a picture. And she is writing at such an odd desk
with its open top and bookcases above. You might easily call it an
old-fashioned secretary. Several cheery paintings are hung above
her, and at her elbow is a miniature orange plant, adding its vivid
colour to the cozy picture.
Her answers concerning- the pictures lead one to believe that
she is in close touch with the artists and has their interests at heart.
One may buy almost any one of the pictures, which are done in all
the mediums from pastel to oils, and appropriately framed.
If you listen to the opinions of fellow artists, you will not fail to
notice the candid criticism of colour-blending and composition in
each of the thumtnbox pictures. The spirit of sincere helpfulness
prompts each designer to analyze the other paintings and the artist
spirit plainly shows itself in its devotion to expression through the
brush and crayon. Surely here is a company of people who have,
by a happy chance, discovered one of the highest things in life;
and believing it to be such, give it their whole soul.
F. Roper Dayment,
Aha ! It is Wednesday. To-day we go down to the lab.
As soon as the period bell rings we are off. Down the stairs
with a rush, and then we bring up with a bang against the lab.
door. Mr. G. is not quite through with the Upper Sixth, but he
soon lets us in.
The lab. has various characteristics. The main one is its smell.
This changes, but is always present. Another is its temperature.
The lab. is always very cold, except when something catches fire
— consequently the cold doesn't bother us much.
The voice of authority rings out. "Now, boys, I don't wish to
speak very long before I set you to work. But you remember last
day, we passed chlorine through a solution of caustic potash. I
would just like to show you the result. Now here is the ah! — let
me see. No! this is it — Tyrer, will you please test this solution
for chloride?" Tyrer puts some of what he has found into a test-
tube and fixes it in a stand.
Tyrer : "If you please — look this way. If there is chloride pres-
ent when I pour a little of this in, a white precipitate will form."
He pauses and squints at the test-tube. He then pours in something
out of a bottle. The stuff fizzes up, subsides and begins to give off
dense, dangerous looking fumes. Soon we see little flashes of light
and it begins to fizz again. (Tyrer wisely jumps into the fume
closet and closes the glass door. We all duck behind our desks.)
The stuff is still sparkling, and then, all of a sudden — BANG!
When the smoke clears away we see Tyrer serenely climbing out of
the fume closet. "There wasn't," he says. After the -panic has sub-
sided Mr. G. says: "Well! now for to-day. I have been looking
through your notes and I intend to set you to do the experiments
I think you did most poorly ; start with this bench." "Tyrer, you
and Beer can make chlorine, be very careful, you know, not to let
any escape." And so on. Each pair is instructed and the bustle
begins. Over in the corner you hear someone saying: "You didn't,
I got it first." "You're crazy, that's been on our desk all along."
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 31
"Oh ! go swallow some nitric, keep it then. Here's another, any-
And so the bustle continues until, BANG ! crash ! tinkle, tinkle.
And then Mr. G.'s voice rises above the rest.
"Who was that?"
Someone replies, "Us, sir, we were making chlorine."
Mr. G. throws open two windows and a door. Notwithstand-
ing the open windows and door there is a general retreat. The
master leads us into the next room. We soon return, but only to
find that the bottom of Robinson's carefully prepared apparatus has
fallen out through overheating. Later, when Anderson is endeav-
ouring to cut off a piece of phosphorous the whole stick takes fire
and there is much excitement. In time there is quiet again, and we
resume our work. Mr. G. catches Walker wandering about the
room, and says: "What are you doing, Walker?" Walker replies,
"I'm just looking for a bottle of radium, I have a wart on my little
At the top of the bench, Mr. G. is busy preparing a very dis-
agreeable and poisonous substance called bromine, with which he
intends to show us some experiments. As explosions have been the
order for the day, we are now beginning to think it is about time
we had another. One is straightway forthcoming. There is a
light pop at the master's desk, and then an explosion. This time,
when the pieces have all fallen, and the smoke has cleared away,
Mr. G. is being carried off to the sick room on a stretcher, leaving
the boys to clean up the lab.
This they do, of course, almost completely.
People talk of some things being as easy as rolling off a log, but
I can assure you that getting an hour's detention is just about
fourteen and a half times easier. The writer is thoroughly famil-
iar with his subject and knows what it is to be gated on Saturday,
have his pocket money stopped, five hour's work to do and numer-
ous other penalties to be paid.
Here are a few suggestions for any one desirous of tasting the
bitterness of detention : wink in study, eat your breakfast, talk in
your sleep, snore, fall down stars, or smile when a master tries to
crack a joke. For any of these offences you are liable to receive
from one to five hours' detention, according to the mood in which
the master happens to be.
The commandments of school life are many. A few of them
are as follows :
Thou shalt love no other school.
Honour thy masters that thine hours may be short in the house
Thou shalt take a bath before thy room-mates make thee.
Thou shalt not lie (after the breakfast bell has sounded).
Thou shalt wear a bowler hat on Sunday.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's Latin book, nor his French
exercise, nor his pencil, nor anything that is thy neighbor's.
There are, all told, one hundred and ten commandments, but
the above will give you a fair idea of what you must not do to avoid
receiving detention. But, after all, what is the good of detention ?
You have to sit in a hot stuffy room ; this must be injurious to your
health. You write so rapidly that your arm becomes cramped and
that beautiful copper-plate writing of which you were so justly
proud soon develops into an illegible scrawl. I firmly believe that
detention should be abolished ; it puts you in a bad humour, does not
increase your love for the master, and, besides, it wears out your
trousers. H. R. Sprott.
St. ANDREWS COLLEGE REVIEW
SMALL TOWN STIFF
•MITH I. — HEAD PREFECT I920-I92I.
"GERRY" SMITH— HEAD PREFECT.
We publish on the opposite page a very good likeness of our
Head Prefect, Smith I., more popularly known as "Gerry." Being
Head Prefect of a school like St. Andrew's is a big job, but Smith
very ably fills the position. It is doubtful if there is a busier man
north of the second bridge than this same Gerry. He ranks high
in his form — the Upper Sixth ; is captain of the Cadet Corps ; man-
ages the hockey team ; is business manager of the Review ; is on the
executive of the Athletic Association and the Literary Society; a
member of numerous other committees, and last, but by no means
least, plays the drum in the college orchestra.
But we have enumerated only the minor activities of the Head
Prefect. His most important sphere is that of the medium
through whom the boys voice their requests and complaints to the
Headmaster. In this capacity Smith exhibits the utmost tact and
diplomacy. This is not the first time we have had a Smith in the
role of Head Prefect. If they are all as good as Gerry we hope we
shall soon have another.
THE LITERARY SOCIETY.
The first meeting of the Literary Society for the season of
1920-21 was held on Friday evening, November 18th. A short
programme was given, but the time was largely taken up in the
election of officers. The performers on this occasion were chiefly
new boys, Proudfoot being much in evidence. Scott, on the violin,
rendered several good numbers, some of which were suspected of
being of his own composition. Brunt spoke on his home village,
Hanover, and Anderson gave a good speech on the College Street
The second meting was held on Friday, December 3rd, and
there were many good items on the programme. Plaunt had a good
deal to say about that great Canadian metropolis, Hamilton. He
told us what a fine chap the Hamilton police force was, and what
36 ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
the main street looked like. "Pup" Murchison rendered several
classical selections on the piano, and received a salvo of applause,
while Richardson, as critic, did his duty so well that he was obliged
to run another cross country.
The next meeting was most successful, although it consisted
chiefly of readings. Tom Aspden gave a very exceptional reading
on "Education Made Easy" ; its chief characteristic was its length,
and even Tom was tired when he had finished.
Friday, January 24th, saw a large turnout for the first meeting
of the Easter term. Proudfoot opened hostilities with some gym-
nastics on the piano, but the big event of the evening was the
debate; MacKenzie and Earle I. versus Chalker and Knechtel on
"Are Movies an Evil or a Good to the Community?" MacKenzie
told us how fine it was for the labouring classes to see great dra-
matic actors such as Ben Turpin and Harold Lloyd, at such low
prices as the movies charged. The negative, however, won the
judges' decision, more on their eloquence than the soundness of
their argument. We also had some music from Giffin on the cor-
net and Hunter on the saxaphone. It was a great fight, but Hunter
won on superior condition.
The next meeting was held on the following Friday, and many
exceptional speeches were given. Beatty gave a short speech
which made Stephen Leacock look like two cents as a humourist.
It was not so much what he said, but the way he said it. We also
had some excellent views of Edinburgh on the magic lantern, ac-
companied by short explanatory remarks from Dr. Macdonald.
THE LOWER SCHOOL LIT.
The Lower School Lit has always been heralded with great ex-
pectations by the lordly gentlemen of the Upper School, and this
year it was no exception. Although mighty in many things these
Upper School gentlemen are not in it with the genii of the Lower
School when it comes to making Friday evening a success.
For three days before the great event rumours, speculations and
excitement ran high. One rumour to the effect that there were to
be moving pictures grew till, in the end, the inmates of the Upper
School were satisfied that on Friday night they were going to see a
regular two-reel Mack Sennet comedy. This rumour, may it be
mentioned, w r as responsible for the majority of those present.
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 37
At the appointed hour the Assembly Hall was the scene of
many expectant faces. In a silence, broken only by the noise of a
pin which some careless person dropped, the first marvel, in the
person of Young, seated himself at the piano and ran through a
piece which was heartily applauded by his hearers. There being
no encores permitted, Horsfall now took the floor and gave a very
good reading, the main purpose of which seemed to be to contradict
itself whenever and wherever possible. After a recitation by
Ruddy, Craig, an old standby of the Lower School, having success-
fully completed his second lesson in music, rendered an intricate
selection from Beethoven which required the use of as many as
three fingers at one time.
At this stage of the programme Giffin, much to the surprise of
all who were under the impression that he had graduated from the
Lower School, began playing the "Love Nest" or something. He
was fairly well under way when from behind the piano there
emerged a charming young lady who danced and sang in such a
way that she captivated her whole audience. Several fellows could
scarcely believe their eyes when told that the beautiful lady was no
lady but Master Fitz Randolph Crowe, dressed up in borrowed gar-
ments. Undoubtedly this was the feature of the evening, and the
manner in which Crowe impersonated the members of the fair sex
deserves great praise. He had all their arts and graces to perfec-
tion and, experienced though they are, those in the audience could
not detect in him anything which might betray the fact that he
was a boy. The applause from Crowe's performance having sub-
sided, Murchison III. gave an interesting talk about his home town,
Buenos Aires; this was followed by a patriotic recitation on the
"Flag" by Fraser I. McCord on the piano was one of the best
numbers of the evening, playing in such a way as to rival many an
older fellow, while Smiley's speech on "Camping" was received in
an uproarious manner, especial^ when he said that he was drowned
last summer when canoeing, and then adding, as an after thought,
"but I was pulled out." A reading, violin solo, and piano solo by
Sprott II., Bethune II. and Ellsworth, respectively, received their
due amount of applause, and then there followed something of a
novelty in the form of a mouth-organ duet by Parker and Noriega
II. ; this developed into a solo about half-way through, as the hilari-
ous state of mind in which Noriega found himself interfered some-
what with his playing. He recovered later, however, and was able
to successfully complete his part, though interrupted once or twice
by giggles with which he seemed to have an overabundant supply.
38 ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
After another performance by Crowe, Sprott I. gave a speech on
"Detention," in which he dealt with the sorrows of unfortunate
The programme was concluded by the motion pictures which
everybody had looked forward to with such interest, and though,
not as rumours had it, a Mack Sennet production, they were just as
good and were received with great appreciation. Having an Allen
in the college is a great convenience, as movies are then supplied
without the necessary digging down into pockets which is so ter-
rible a strain on the school-boy who prefers his money to be spent
on something that can be eaten.
Taking it all around the Lower School Lit. supplied more real
enjoyment in their one night than the L'pper School has since the
season opened. The admirable way in which each part was car-
ried out speaks well for the careful training the boys had received
at the hands of Mr. Palmer, and it is hoped that some time in the
near future the Literary Society will be treated to another visit
from the Lower School. J. H. Supple.
THE CADET CORPS DANCE.
One of the many events which we have been able to hold as in
past years is the Cadet Corps Dance. Flags and bunting made the
Assembly Hall most attractive, while rugs and palms decorated the
platform where the orchestra was seated. Due to the enthusiastic
direction of Mrs. Macdonald and a score of helpers, several rooms
were arranged in a manner most inviting to those sitting out. Large
Union Jacks were draped about the old familiar stairway, and the
halls presented a gay appearance. Oriental rugs, clusters of soft-
upholstered easy chairs, with plants and candles adorning the man-
tlepiece, and a blazing fire completed the inviting aspect of the
February third was the evening set apart for this, one of the
biggest events of the school year. The stores were daily the scene
of anxious searches for the "pick" of uniforms, and after hours
spent in polishing buttons, the corps was pronounced ready for its
At eight o'clock the guests began to arrive, and by nine the halls
and Assembly Room were well crowded by the four hundred pres-
ent. The floor was ideal, and a splendid orchestra of six rendered
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 39
music which was most inducive to dancing. During an intermis-
sion after the twelfth number a few extras were given by some old
boys, Frank Somers at the piano, and Bob Dingman at the traps, as
During the supper dances the dining room was filled with cou-
ples partaking of the delicious refreshments. This year, instead
of an outside caterer arranging the tables, the college steward did
so, and in a manner most commendable.
The party continued merrily until after midnight, and judging
by the enthusiasm shown there was real regret when the last num-
ber was played at one-thirty. God Save the King and a lusty
"Hoot" concluded an evening which none will deny was perfect in
every detail. Dayment.
THE MINSTREL SHOW.
Our second annual minstrel show was held in the college As-
sembly Hall on Friday, February 25th. This was one of our regu-
lar Literary Society meetings, but owing to considerable expense
being incurred in the preparation of the show it was deemed ad-
visable to sell tickets in order to defray the cost of production.
When the curtains were thrown back at 8.15, a hall crowded to
capacity greeted the merry-makers on the stage, and from the
manner in which the opening number was received one knew that
the minstrels had scored another success. In the first act the
chorus appeared clad in red jackets and black trousers; perched
jauntily on their heads were red and white "pill box" caps. The
end-men were garbed in a manner suitable to their dignified roles
with dress coats and white trousers, some of a near-fit and others
voluminous. After the opening chorus, Huff rendered "The Moon
Shines on the Moonshine," and when encored did a little eccentric
dancing, which was very well received. "The Laughing Vamp," by
the entire company, was one of the best numbers on the pro-
gramme. This was followed by a solo from Grayson, "Grieving for
you." Rastus and Heliotrope, impersonated by Huff and Daly, now
gave some local hits, many of the boys and most of the master
thereby suffering somewhat. "Left All Alone Again Blues" was
sung by Wilson in a manner worthy of Al. Jolson. The first act
ended with the entire company, accompanied by the college orches-
tra, singing "Margie." One of the features of this act was a speech
ST. ANDREWS COLLEGE REVIEW
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 41
by Daly. He gave a very finished performance, and brougth forth
many a hearty laugh.
During the intermission the orchestra played two selections
and Randolph Crowe, the famous female impersonator, entertained
the audience with songs and dances. The second act, with the
company in an entire change of costume, opened with the singing
of "Somebody." Daly's interpretation of "I Know Where the
Flies Go" scored a big hit. This was followed by "Carry Me Back
to Old Verginny," by the Three-in-One Trio. Huff now rendered
another song and then the end men gave that ever popular num-
ber, "Coon, Coon, Coon." This song, rendered in a novel manner,
received a great ovation. "Down the Trail to Home Sweet Home,"
sung by Grayson in a clear tenor voice, brought tears to the eyes
of many. A well balanced programme was closed with the entire
company singing with great zip and abandon, "Cuba." After the
National Anthem the guests of the school adjourned to the dining
room where light refreshments were served.
Mention must be made of the good work done by Sission I. and
CroWther as stage managers, also that of Chalker, the master elec-
trician, who was ably assisted in handling the spot-light by Supple.
The cast of characters was as follows :
Interlocutor Cameron II.
Sambo Wilson I.
George Washington Short Grayson
Peene, Glenn, Armstrong, Ellis I., Patterson III., Tyrer, Findley

THE CADET CORPS.
Sir Henry Burstall, the Inspector-General of Codet Corps of
Canada, is to visit Toronto in March, and the principal corps of the
city are to parade. As this is an early date for a Cadet Corps
inspection, we have had to arrange more drills. During the win-
ter term there has been a prolonged noon hour in which period we
have had pipe and bugle band practice, as well as rifle drill. The
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
result has been that the corps is in splendid condition, and expects
to present a trim appearance at the Armouries. Upper Canada,
De La Salle, Appleby, and several other corps will be represented,
but we are confident that the traditions associated with the kilts
will in no wise be endangered.
The basketball team this term is not as great a success as it
was last year, owing to the fact that nearly all our basketball play-
ers are hockey enthusiasts, and so far this year, although we have
had a few practices, no team has been chosen, or any games ar-

ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
FINDLAY III— CAPTAIN, FIRST HOCKEY TEAM, 1920-192 1.
To most St. Andrew's boys the hockey season this year has
been rather disappointing. The junior teams have been badly
handicapped by lack of ice, while our senior team failed to come
up to our expectations. Cameron's illness, and subsequent retire-
ment from the game, proved a sad blow to the team, for it was
not until near the close of the season that we were able to dis-
cover, in his younger brother, a reliable goalkeeper. The team,
however, did at times play remarkably good hockey, and we can
console ourselves for numerous defeats by looking forward to next
year when we expect to have most of the members of this season's
team back on the job as well as plenty of good material from our
very strong second team.
We Rave had very little ice on the school rinks during the past
two months, but, whenever skating was possible, the younger
boys did not delay in arranging matches and accounts of several
of the more important of these games, as well as all those played
by the first and second teams, can be found on the following pages.
PERSONNEL OF FIRST HOCKEY TEAM.
Cameron II. — "Joe," weight 127 lbs. Goal. Plays the same
cool, steady game as his brother Jack. First year on the team, and
with a little more experience should develop into one of the best
net guardians that ever represented St. Andrew's.
Draper — "Harvey," weight 161 lbs. Left Defense. Uses his
weight to good advantage, and always plays a clean, hard game.
This is the first season he has worn St. Andrews' colours.
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 45
Peene — "Dave," weight 152 lbs. Right Defense. Showed great
improvement as the season advanced. Not a good puck carrier,
but played a strong defensive game.
MacLeod — "Chuck," weight 145 lbs. Left Wing. An old col-
our. A fast, aggressive player and a fair shot. At times some-
what erratic in his play and inclined to wander from his position.
Drury — "Bob," weight 145 lbs. Right Wing. First year on
the team. A left-hand shot, and thus at a decided disadvantage
in playing the Right Wing position. A good stick handler and
checks back well. Should be a valuable man next year.
Findlay III. — "Bruce," weight 124 lbs. Centre. Captained the
team. A splendid stick-handler and skater. Worked in well on all
combination plays, but is a little weak in shooting.
Richardson — "Jimmie," weight 146 lbs. Substitute. A good,
useful player. A hard worker, but a little weak in stick-handling.
MacLaren II. — "Gord," weight 128 lbs. Showed great improve-
ment toward the end of the season. Will be a useful forward next
Sissons I. and Patterson III. managed the team very efficiently,
while Smith I. looked after the handling of the tickets for the
games and conducted any business which the team had to transact
with the rink management.

but Draper took puck back in a long rush, but his shot failed to

materialize. Play went from end to end, and it was only Carrick's
checking w T hich broke up U. C. C. combination. MacLeod secured
the puck and carried it through the defense and scored — U. C. C. ;
S. A. C. 1. S. A. C. carried puck repeatedly into U. C. C. territory,
but shooting failed. MacLeod played brilliantly at this time both

Both teams were tired and irritable, and S. A. C. had the edge

teams seemed determined to win, but both defenses had tightened
up, and the period was scoreless. S. A. C. 2 ; U. C. C. 2.

On the whole the game was a good exhibition of hockey, but in-
dividual play was more noticeable than good combination.
S. A. C. vs. U. T. S.
On January 17 the team met U. T. S. at the Arena. Prior to
the game Bruce Findlay was elected captain, an appointment which
was well merited. The teams lined up as follows :

S. A. C. carried the puck again into U. T. S. end and Carrick
bulged the net on a pass from Findlay. U. T. S. 2 ; S. A. C. 2.
U. T. S. carried the puck back into S. A. C. territory, but Gordon
saved the day. Munro was sent off for a second time, and taking
advantage of his absence, S. A. C. pounded their goal, but were
unsuccessful. Carrick was put off and in their anxiety to score the
forwards left Draper alone on the defense, U. T. S. took the puck
and outskating our forward line passed Draper and scored. Period
ended, U. T. S. 3;S. A. C. 2.
This was a most disastrous period and the whole team seemed
to be up in the air, with the result U. T. S. shot in five goals, bring-
ing the score, U. T. S. 8; S. A. C. 2. Undaunted, Findlay, Mac-
Leod and Drury made some fine rushes, especially Findlay who
was a team in himself. They checked every rush, and time and
again Draper took the puck back into U. T. S. territory, but failed
to score. MacLeod, however, passed the defense in a nice rush and
tallied the last goal of the game. Game ended, U. T. S. 8 ; S. A. C. 3.
The game was far tighter than the score would indicate, and
this was the first time, and perhaps the last, that the team showed
is ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
any inclination towards combination, later relying almost abso-
lutely on the speed and stick handling of the forward line. Plaxton
played a good game for U. T. S.
S. A. C. vs. ST. MICHAEL'S.
St. Andrew's first team met St. Michael's on January 21 at the
Arena. The teams lined up as follows:
James Goal Gordon
Rooney Defence Carrick I.
McCarney Defence Draper
Gauthier Right Wing Drury I.
Murphy Left Wing MacLeod
Millan Centre Findlay III.
Jones Sub. Peene
Smith Sub. MacLaren I.
Play began with St. Mike's on offensive, and their fine combina-
tion plays kept Gordon always busy. The defense did fine work,
and it was only Carrick and Draper's play which kept the first
period scoreless. Findlay also played a nice game at centre. Mur-
phy for S.M.C. played the best game, although he and all the
rest of the team failed to rally during first period.
Play again began with S. M. C. on the offensive, but our for-
wards had livened up, and MacLeod, Findlay and Drury played a
very good game individually, but they played very little combina-
tion, and the result was S. M. C. kept up a steady stream of shots
from both wings. Murphy scored the first for S.M.C, and then two
more went in in quick succession, S. M. C. 3 ; S. A. C. 0. Play rushed
from end to end. Draper and Findlay played their best game at
this time. Period ended, S. M. C. 3 ; S. A. C. 0.
S. M. C. started in with a rush, and Gauthier drove in two
more before the defense closed down, S. M. C. 5 ; S. A. C. 0. Then
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 49
our forwards started to work. MacLeod and Findlay repeatedly
drove through the defense, and then in the last five minutes Drury,
with a wicked shot from the wing, scored, S. M. C. 5 ; S. A. C. 1.
Hardly was the puck faced off when Drury went through and scored
again. S. M. C. 5 ; S. A. C. 2. Scarcely was goal tallied when the
St. Mikes showed far superior combination to our team, but
their checking was not so good as that of our forwards. It was in
this game that the Carrick-Draper defense did so well, and Car-
rick's rushes were the best on the team.
S. A. C. vs. ST. MICHAEL'S.
St. Andrew's met S. M. C. at the Arena for the second time,
and as St. Mike's were winners in the group, we did very well to
hold them to a one nothing score. The lion's share of the good
stand we made is due almost entirely to Cameron and Carrick, both
playing in brilliant form : The line-up :

St. Mike's carried the puck into S. A. C. territory, but Carrick
broke their combination and rushing through their defense, shot,
but failed to score. St. Mike's carried it back, and bombarded
Cameron freely, but Joe showed some of Jack's style and success-
fully kept them out. MacLeod and Drury made a fine combination
play, but again a score failed to materialize. The S. M. C. for-
wards rushed up again and again, but Findlay did some good back
checking, and S. M. C. went scoreless.
S. A. C. started the period well by carrying the puck into S.
M. C. territory, but in rushing gack one of the St. Mike's defense,
50 ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
Rooney, tried to hurdle Carrick, and Carrick inadvertently
raised himself, and the man was laid out. After a few minutes he
proceeded gamely to play, but his game was not as good as it had
been. Carrick was not to be blamed for this action, as it was
entirely unintentional. In the end of the period this man tried the
same trick, and very nearly met the same fate. The play became
quite rough at this point, and it was owing to the good work of
Draper and Drury that S. M. C. went scoreless, and, later, when
MacLeod was the only forward on the ice, he played splendidly.
The period ended scoreless.
S. M. C. started off with a punch, and one of their men was
sent to the penalty box. Both teams were tired, and as a result,
the play was ragged, and penalties were very frequent. MacLeod,
Findlay and Drury were undoubtedly the best. ■ Both sides were
trusting to luck, and several times on a face-off scoring was averted
by a hair's breadth, and on several of MacLeod's wing shots the
goalkeeper saved more by good luck than good management. Find-
lay starred all through the forward play, rushing repeatedly
through the defense. S. A. C. had undoubtedly the edge on the
Both teams came on the ice fresh, and after three minutes' play
S. M. C. scored on a vicious shot from right wing, which passed
Cameron. Findlay took the puck into the defense time and time
again, but failed to score. S. A. C. ; S. M. C. 1.
This was undoubtedly the best game we had in the season, and
the team deserves to be heartily congratulated on its game, especi-
ally Cameron, who showed up splendidly.

U. C. C. took the puck at once into S. A. C. end, evading our
defense, but Reinhart's shot failed to score. Draper carried the puck
back, but U.C.C. had a wonderful back-check, and soon the puck was
back in S. A. C. end. Drury, MacLeod and Findlay tried to rush
it out, but failed, and in the melee which followed U. C. C. scored
a very doubtful goal. U. C. C. 1 ; S. A. C. 0. Again both teams
started off at terrific speed and S. A. C. bombarded U C. C. goal
frequently, when U. C. C. forwards took the puck and outskating
our forward line were driven into a corner by the defense, but on
the rebound Reinhart scored. S. A. C. 0; U. C. C. 2. Play was
much in U. C. C.'s favour when MacLeod secured the puck and
scored on one of his wicked wing shots. S. A. C. 1 ; U. C. C. 2.
U. C. C. started again, using the same tactics, going down and
bouncing the puck off the boards to the eveready Reinhart, but he
had found in Findlay a very able opponent, who broke up their
rebound system, usually running the puck back again into U, C. C.
end, but Lamport and Mulqueen were an admirable defense, and
Mulqueen's rushes were only broken up when he encountered Car-
rick. The U. C. C. forwards ran the puck back into S. A. C. end
and scored. S. A. C. 1 ; U. C. C. 3. U. C. C. took the puck back
again, but Drury broke up the play, carried the puck back, very
nearly scoring. S. A. C. then bombarded Home freely, but failed
to score. Period ended 3-1.
S. A. C. started well, but play was very ragged, and the com-
bination was poor. Findlay, Drury and MacLeod worked hard,
but their rushes were usually broken up by U. C. C. back-checking.
Cameron saved a large number of hard shots. Draper rushed, but
Mulqueen checking him carried the puck down, and in a mixup in
front of goal U. C. C. scored again. U. C. C. 4 ; S. A. C. 1.
After this it was all S. A. C. Findlay bombarded the goal from
every angle, and Drury passed the defense several times, but failed
in scoring. Reinhart, Greey and Wright were checked every time
they started, but S. A. C. did not score, and the game ended. S. A.
C. 1; U. C. C. 4.
Carrick and Draper played an excellent defensive game, while
Cameron in goal performed like a veteran. Findlay was best on
the forward line.
For U. C. C. Reinhart and Skaith were by far the best.

S. A. C. vs. U. T. S.
Our last O. H. A. game was played against U. T. S. on Feb.
3rd. The line-up of the two teams was the same as on their previ-
ous engagement, except that Peene replaced Carrick I. on the St.
There is little to relate about the game. The minds of the S.
A. C. boys must have been on the College dance, which was to be
held that evening. Judging by their play they were thinking of
anything but hockey. U. T. S. won by a wide margin. Their team
showed a marked improvement as the season advanced, and they
well deserved to win second place in the group.
S. A. C. vs. T. C. S.
On Saturday, February 12th, St. Andrew's journeyed to Port
Hope to meet the Trinity College School First Hockey Team. For-
tunately, there had been a heavy frost the previous night so an
excellent sheet of ice was provided for the game. The game was
called for 1.45 to enable the St. Andrew's team to catch the 4.05
train for Toronto. The teams lined up as follows:
S. A. C. T. C..S.
Cameron II Goal Doupe
Draper : Defense Cruickshank
Peene Defence Turner II.
Findlay III. Centre Merrill (Capt.)
Drury Right Wing Mulholland
MacLeod Left Wing Cameron
McLaren Subs McPherson
Richardson Subs Johnston I.
T. C. S. rushed St. Andrew's goal from the face-off, but shot
wildly. Findlay was forced to retire for a few minutes, having re-
ceived accidentally a blow from an opponent's stick. McLaren re-
placed him and very nearly scored for St. Andrew's. After about
five minutes' play Drury evaded the T. C. S. defense and drove a
shot past Doupe for the first tally of the game. Play became rag-
ged, neither team attempting any combination, while considerable
slashing was indulged in. Mulholland drew a penalty for tripping
Findlay and the latter followed him to the penalty box a moment
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 53
later for a similar offence. Before the period ended T. C. S. tied
the score, Merrill (bulging the net on a lucky shot from a face-off
in front of S. A. C. goal. Good hockey was not in evidence during
this period, the play resembling very much that old-fashioned
game of shinney. St. Andrew's found it difficult to get going on
the small ice surface, while T. C. S., judging from the remarks
made by their supporters, were not playing up to their true form.
Early in the period Draper made a nice rush and centred to
Findlay, who batted the puck past the T. C. S. goalie. Cameron
saved nicely for St. Andrew's on several occasions, but was not
kept as busy as the T. C. S. goal-keeper. St. Andrew's should have
scored several times during this period, but weak and wild shoot-
ing, coupled with some good stops by Doupe, kept the score down.
Drury and Findlay played good hockey in this period, but there was
still a great lack of team-play by both sides.
During this period an amusing incident took place, a football
fell from one of the rafters of the rink. MacLeod attempted to
kick it over the wire netting which surrounds the ice surface. Of
course, MacLeod is a scrimmage man, and never pretended to be
an expert punter, so when he went to kick the ball — well, you'd
better ask "Mac" about it! Anyway, it provided considerable
amusement for the T. C. S. boys who were watching the game.
Harve Draper came to MacLeod's rescue, and when his toe hit the
old pig-skin it soareaHback again into the rafters and the game pro-
ceeded. The period ended with St. Andrew's leading by a score of
2 to 1.
Things began to happen in the final period. The T. C. S. boys
opened up a terrific bombardment on the S. A. C. goal and gave
Cameron a busy few minutes. Play became faster and T. C. S.
altered their tactics, checking St. Andrew's right at their own goal
instead of falling back to centre. Penalties were handed out fre-
quently to both teams. On a mix-up in front of the St. Andrew's
net T. C. S. scored the tieing goal. This goal was disputed, but
was allowed by Referee Grant. A few minutes later T. C. S. took
the lead, scoring on a pretty combination play, Merrill being re-
sponsible for the shot that beat Cameron. Drury evaded the T.
C. S. defense, but failed to score. On a face-off in front of T. C. S.
54 ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
goal, Findlay scored the final counter of the game, making the score
three alL In this period T. C. S. had the better of the play, but
tired badly in the last five minutes. It had been agreed by both
teams that in the event of a tie no overtime would be played.
Barring the first ten minutes of the final period the game was
a poor exhibition of hockey. For T. C. S. Turner played a strong
game, rushing and shooting well, while "Runt" Cameron, at left
wing, put up a plucky fight until forced to retire towards the end of
the last period. Findlay, Draper and Drury showed up well for
St. Andrew's. "Tod" Grant handled the game in a most satisfac-
T. C. S. vs. S. A. C.

T. C. S. took puck immediately after face-off and in a flash of
brilliant combination Merrill shot the puck past Cameron — T. C. S.
1; S. A. C. 0. MacLeod rushed the puck through the defense,
but Doupe made a nice save of what seemed a certain goal. It was
here that the T. C. S. forwards showed their undisputed superiority
in both speed and combination by rushing the puck back to our end,
but Peene showed some good checking and saved the day. T. C. S.
rushed the puck back and Mulholland scored. T. C. S. 2 ; S. A. C. 0.
The Trinity forward line now bombarded Cameron quite freely, but
"Joe" played a good game until Cruikshanks passed Peene and
scored on another shot from the wing. T. C. S. 3 ; S. A. C. 0.

T. C. S. used itheir combination again to get S .A. C. end and
Mulholland drove a wicked wing shot at Cameron, who saved.

Findlay took puck into T. C. S. territory, but using their won-
derful combination Trinity took the puck back, and Mulholland
scored again. The puck was faced-off and the same man rushed
past Draper and scored. T. C. S. 6 ; S. A. C. 0. Play went from
end to end, and in a mixup in front of goal, Mulholland scored
again. T. C. S. 7 ; S. A. C. 0. Draper took puck back and passed
to Findlay who scored. T. C. S. 7 ; S. A. C. 1. S. A. C. then left
the defense and shot continually, but Doupe was good and they
failed to score. Turner took the puck on the rebound off Draper's
shot, rushed down and scored. T. C. S. 8 ; S. A. C. 1. This was the
last tally, and Trinity won the game on their superior speed and
combination. It was a clean exhibition of hockey, not a single pen-
alty being imposed on either side.
U. C. C. II. vs. S. A. C. II.
On Saturday, Feb. 19th, at the Arena, S. A. C. II. met U. C. C.

HOUSE AND FORM MATCHES.
ROOM 105 vs. THE REST OF THE LOWER FLAT.
On Tuesday, February 1st, the boys of Room 105 met and de-
feated by a score of 3 to a team composed of the hockey stars
from all the other rooms on the flat. Smart combination play by
the lads of 105 proved too much for their opponents and the result
of the match was never in doubt. For the winners Birkett checked
and rushed well while Cameron III.'s shooting was particularly
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 57
effective. Munn I. was best for the losers. The winning team
lined-up as follows:
Room 105 — Goal. Reid; Defense, Robertson II., and Crosbie II.;
Centre, Birkett; Right Wing, Grant; Left Wing, Cameron III.
ROOM 105 vs. ROOM 215.
The next House match was played on Saturday, February 5th.
This was a very keenly contested game, and the boys of 105 had to
extend themselves to win by a score of 2 to 1. Only five men a side
were played, owing to Robertson II. being incapacitated. The com-
bination work of the boys from the lower flat was responsible for
their finishing with the bigger end of the score. In Reid, Birkett
and Cameron III. the school has three forwards that will bear
watching during the next few seasons. For the losers Taggart and
Cameron II. played well. The teams lined up as follows :
Room 105 — Goal, Crosbie; defense, Grant I.; centre, Birkett;
wings, Cameron III., and Reid.
Room 215 — Goal, Cochrane; defense, Palmer; centre, Patterson
III. ; Wings, Cameron II. and Taggart.
FORM IIIA vs. FORM IIIB.
A fast and spectacular game of hockey was played on Monday,
Feb. 21st, when the IIIA "Midgets" met the "Small Fry" of IIIB.
Only two twenty minute periods were played and at half time IIIB
was leading by a score of 1 to 0, but early in the second period
Whilans drove a wicked shot past Horsfall, making the score a tie.
Play now became fast and furious. Eddie Noonan was benched for
slashing and a moment later McLennan II. drew a major penalty
for throwing his stick. Both teams scored in quick succession, and
jt began to look as though overtime would have to be played in
order to declare a winner, but with one minute to play Waldo Hol-

Copping, Norman Judson, was born in Toronto on May 14th,
1886. He came up to St. Andrew's College from McCaul Public
School in September, 1901, and left in June, 1902, to enter business.
For some years he was with his father in the firm of Geo. R. Cop-
ping & Son. When his father was lost in the sinking of the Lusi-
tania he took charge of the business, and was also engaged in manu-
facturing. Some time ago he sold his manufacturing interests and
confined his attention to the affairs of his company.
On February 3rd, 1921, he succumbed to an attack of pneumonia
after a few days' illness.
Norman Copping had many friends, both at school and in later
life, who will miss him very much. His old school joins with them
in sympathetic regard for the widow and children who are left
behind to mourn his passing.
Horn, Hubert Lee, was born on November 26th, 1896. He
come up to St. Andrew's College from Winnipeg in September,
1913, and left in June, 1915. After matriculating into McGill Uni-
versity in the autumn of the same year he entered upon his uni-
versity course at Chicago. In 1918 he died in Kansas City. The
news of his death reached the Review only a few weeks ago.
While at St. Andrew's College Horn took an interest in all the
school activities, and was on the Second Football Team. Many of
his old school friends will learn with sorrow that his earthly course
has been of such brief duration.

which brought his earthly career to such a sudden close.
SA n RDAY AFTERS
" CAGED BIRD!-
From a cupboard securely locked against eager and inquisitive
hands the Exchange Editor now draws forth a vast supply of accu-
mulated exchanges, and with an unbiased mind, he proceeds to offer
praise or constructive criticism to each of these magazines.
The first to present itself to his impartial eye is:
Vox Lycie, of Hamilton Collegiate, an Athletic and Shooting
Number. The cover is well drawn and brings honour to the Col-
legiate. A few stories would help to liven the contents of the Vox,
otherwise it is a fine magazine.
The Managra, representing the Manitoba Agricultural College,
has advertisements spread throughout, which we think detracts
from the interest of the reading matter.
This is the first time we have had the privilege of exchanging
with the Copa De Ora, of Orland Union High School, and we hope
to continue to do so in the future. The arrangement of your photo-
graphs, and sketches, is splendid.
Next is the College Times from a near-by friend, Upper Canada
College. Lack of stories is noticeable in your well put together
Times, and excellent style is shown in the manner in which the
rugby games are written up. Your ads. show that the Times'
business managers are not asleep.
Then comes the King's College, Windsorian. It is a nearly con-
structed journal. A few stories would increase its size, also make
it more interesting to its readers.
The Blue and White, of Rothsay Collegiate School, is much bet-
ter than last issue, and we hope it continues to improve.
It is from the Far West that our next exchange arrives. The
Black and Red of the University Military School, B. C, is a very
attractive book. We wish you success as a military school.
We are glad to welcome the first issue of the Goblin. A publi-
cation of this type is more than welcome, for it portrays the
brighter side of Varsity life and brings smiles to all who read it.
We hope you become one of our permanent exchanges.
64 ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW
Here's a new one; the Central Hi Review. A paper in which
the Exchange Editor takes an interest.
Headings are needed and Table of Contents required in the Acta
Ridleiana of Ridley College. Your literary matter is good. Per-
haps you could increase the size, also the quality of your Acta
Ridleiana by carrying some advertising.
The St. Thomas Collegian has good cartoons; but why not ex-
tend them through your Collegian?
We are always glad to receive the Tallow Dip from Netherwood,
Rothesay, N.B. Why not introduce a Table of Contents?
A lively paper for its size is the Stratford Collegian.
The literary work in the University of Alberta, Gateway
Monthly, is always appreciated by us. We also wish to acknow-
ledge the receipt of the Gateway Weekly.
The Macdonald College Magazine, St. Annes, Que., suggests
poor business management by having its cover put on upside down.
The stories and other works are very interesting.
Arriving from Carteret Academy, Orange, N.J., comes the Car-
teret. It is plain, but attractive, and could be increased in volume.
Improvement could be made in the Local Department of the
Oakwood Oracle. Apart from this the Oracle does not disappoint
The Ethical Culture High School, Inkling's literary products
always interest us, and this magazine holds a high place in our
Welcome Lux Columbiana to our exchange list.
The exchange section is well written in your Acadia Athenaeum.
Your criticism is to the point. Need of photos is observable. Will
the Exchange Editor of the Athanaeum please read the editorial
in the last issue of the Review?
The Blue and White of Port Hope High School has shown con-
siderable growth in size. This goes to show what a small magazine
can rise to if well supported.
Quibs are especially prominent in the Chronicle of Niagara
Falls School, N.Y., also the rest of its material is well written.
We might suggest that a short story occasionally be put in this
The Ashburian requires stories, also pictures, to liven it up.
The Appleby School, Argus: Your Old Boys' Section reveals
the interest that your Old Boys take in you as well as in the Argus.
We also have pleasure in acknowledging the receipt of the fol-

PRO OMNIBUS NOSTRIS BENEFICIIS.
When the luncheon bell is ringing
And we're in a famished mood,
Then the school boy's fickle fancy
Lightly turns to thoughts of food.
In two ranks, for place competing,
We line up against the wall,
Waiting for the tardy master
To conduct us to the Hall.
For an hour we've been sniffing
Odours that entice and please;
Is it soup or macaroni?
Can it be a piece of cheese !
Now the portals are thrown open,
And we file into our place,
Stand behind our chairs in silence
While a prefect mumbles grace.
Knives and forks are poised for action,
Enter Lucy with a tray,
And the maid, in great distraction,
Sets it down and glides away.
What is this I see before me
With the texture of a stone?
'Tis not sausage nor spaghetti,
Is it liver and ba-cone?
Do mine eager eyes deceive me,
What is this the maid has brought?
Is it apple, fig, banana,
Or the wizened apricot!
After all, what does it matter
In the light of days to come,
When we've left behind our platter
And uncritical become?
ST. ANDREWS COLLEGE REVIEW
When our boyhood days are over,
We've amassed a mighty pile
And are treating with our doctor
For our tummies all the while.

At our simple college fare,
Wishing that we now could relish
All the dainties we got there.

LITERARY AND ART NOTES.
Among the many volumes recently published we are pleased to
acknowledge the following:
Helpful Hints for Backward Boys, by McKay and McLachlan.
These two, in collaboration with Everhart, have achieved wonders,
and, I believe that every boy that is backward about coming for-
ward should read it. The chapter on "Streetcar Flirtations" is par-
Prune Whip. By Thomas Aspden.
The past-rnaster of cubist verse has come forward with a new
volume of poetry ; this contains a collection of verse taken from the
author's works written since 1873. The poem, "Hot Dogs and
Cheese" is worthy of careful reading.
Wood's Biography of Frank Blauvelt. .03c.
In this, Wood, the great writer (of lines) likens his subject to
Samuel Johnston, and treats it as did Boswell, setting down Blau-
velt's words and actions each day, consequently there are some
very hot pages in the volume.
Public Speaking. By Eric Beattie.
In this little volume, the silver-tongued orator gives some of
the methods he has found effective in "gripping" an audience. The
author, who was an eye-witness of the burning of the Parliament
Buildings in Ottawa, gives several stirring extracts from his fam-
ous speech on that subject.
The Telephone: Its Uses and Abuses. By E. Golden Tyrer.
A masterful work by one with a fair knowledge of the subject.
Ten Nights in a Barber Shop. By Fred Alcott Bingham.
A rather sticky treatise on the irrigation of the hair.
Hockey in the Stone Age. By Jess Carrick. The subject is
treated in a bold, ruthless manner. An intensely interesting book
but of doubtful historic value.
Anderson, the well-blown artist, has been at work on a new
picture: a portrait of Shirley MacRae. He portrays his subject
at the dinner table in an attitude of deep thought with a potato
poised on a fork half-way to his capacious mouth. The pose is re-
alistic and, although the artist is only a fourth-rater, the picture
looks well upside down. P. K. Boo.
ST. ANDREW'S COLLEGE REVIEW 73
Master (shouting to janitor at 1 a.m.) : "Burglar! Burglars!
Phone for the police."
Janitor : "Sorry, sir, but Tyrer is still using the phone."
The great pianist, Pupaw Murchison, gave a recital in the lower
school reception room. During the concert the pianist found it
almost impossible to proceed owing to the tributes, floral and other-
wise, that were thrown through the window at him.
Chauncey R. Chalker, the tin whistle and own-horn blower,
aided by Jeff Supple, the bag-pipe performer, gave an enjoyable
concert to their room-mates on Valentine's Day.
J. V. Russel, the contra-baritone-basso vocalist, gave a recital
in the washroom several weeks ago. He was heartily applauded
(when he went out) .

Thou much abused goddess,
How art thy powers mocked

Cameron I. (in sick room) : "Doctor, what's the matter with
Doctor (looking at Cameron's legs) : "Oh, you're in good health
but poor shape."
Supple says: "It is a bad thing to speak of detention and re-
ligion in the same breath."
Long toiled the artist at his great picture, and when it was fin-
ished, millionaires came offering him gold for it. Then he awak-
ened clutching one of his rotten cartoons to the breast of his dirty
pyjamas. His name was Anderson.
Patterson IV.: "What is the inside of a jail like?"
MacLeod: "I would be able to tell you if my dad hadn't gone
bail for me."

WHAT A PERFECT MASTER WOULD SAY.
"So you skipped down-town, and was there anything going on
"You have three double gatings. I'll make it an hour's work."
"There will be no study to-night at the request of Blauvelt."
There was a young fejlow called Fred,
Who for weeks was confined to his bed.

Delved deep in his hair
And found that his brains were quite dead.

Girl : "Possibly, my father keeps the zoo."
I should like to be a prefect,
So I could., get some leave,
And I smile in my desire
As my golden dreams I weave.
I could stay up till eleven,
Get week-ends by the score
And be always late for breakfast
Without starting up a war.
I should like to be a prefect,
But not (and here's the rub)
Be the head of any table,
And give other guys the grub.

"THE DISCOVERY OF THE ATOM."
Place : St. Andrew's Lab.
Characters: Palmer and Owens (students?)
Comic Characters : Anderson and Temple.
As the curtain rises Palmer is seen holding up to the light a
test tube containing a piece of chalk.
Palmer:. "Ah, my efforts at last are crowned with victory!"
Owens: "At last, at last!"
Palmer: "My name will go down with Newton's and (consults
Physics Book) Pascal's."
Enter Anderson and Temple quarrelling.
Anderson : "Marconi discovered America."
Temple : "I tell you it was Jenoby Moore."
Anderson strikes Temple who retaliates.
Palmer: "What means the noise behind us?"
Owens: "But two court jesters, Great Scientist, pay them not
the slightest heed."
The struggle continues. Anderson is thrown roughly against
Palmer knocking the test tube from his hand. The test tube falls
to the floor and is shattered into many fragments.
Palmer (tearing his hair) : "Curses! the work of weeks ruined
by two fools!"
Mrs. Shirley McRae and Mrs. J. Veracity Russell held a recep-
tion in the school library ; dainty refreshments, consisting of soda-
biscuit and milk, were served by the prefects.

Mr. Don. Patterson, who is starring with the Fleck Film Co.,

An event of the greatest importance to the musical world was
the banquet tendered by M. Paderewski and M. Rachmaninoff to
their contemporary M. Murchison, B.V.D. at Bowles' some days
ago. The service was almost demoralized by M. Murchison's per-
sistent cry of "Beans With." He proved himself as proficient with
the souponola as with his beloved piano; finding that he could
create many new variations in his famous "Prelude to Fish."

and a Ukulele in much less time.
We have guitars from $7.50 up and L T kuleles

77ie Radiantfire is a remarkable gas heating
appliance that should he in every fireplace.
It can always be depended upon for instant
warmth. It lights without puffing and burns
without the trace of an odor. Its ever
changing opalescent glow is as good to look
upon as it is effective at heating.
Considering the efficiency of this gas heater,
the cost of operation is indeed very small.
