Col. 7<5hn 8. Cuningham, 

a loyal son of bts 

Hlma Mater and of bis native State, 

this volume is respectfully 

dedicated by 

Che Editors. 



Col. '^ohn S. Cuninsbam, 

COL. JOHN SOMERVILLE CUNINGHAM was born in Warrenton, 
N. C, September 5, 1861, and is a son of the late Hon. John W. Cun- 
ingham, who was for more than thirty years a member of the House 
and Senate of North Carohna, and was long accounted the most influential 
citizen in Person County. 

After a thorough course at the famous Horner School, at Oxford, and 
Bingham School, at Mebane, the subject of this sketch entered the University 
of North Carolina, and there completed an excellent education. 

Although one would judge that the talents and tastes of Col. Cuningham 
tended toward a professional career, still with rare intuition he chose as his 
field of labor, the management and improvement of his large inherited estate, 
intending by this means to demonstate the superiority of Eastern North Caro- 
lina in agriculture over other sections of the country, and especially for the 
raising of the celebrated "golden leaf" variety of tobacco. 

Col. Cuningham was well equipped for his sphere of life, being the 
possessor of large wealth, a host of friends, great intelligence, a keen 
business insight and pleasing manners. 

As might well be expected, he immediately achieved success, and has 
become one of the foremost planters in the South. He has introduced new 
methods into farming, and by his active interest and example has improved 
the agricultural interests, not only of his own State, but of the entire South. 

As a recognition of his leadership in this line of life, Col. Cuningham 
had the honor conferred upon him of being chosen to preside over the large 
assembly of prominent agriculturalists, known as the "Interstate Farmers' 
Convention," which met at Danville, Va., in February, 1888. 

Col. Cuningham was a delegate to the Paris Exposition in 1889, and 
traveled exten^vely abroad, visiting France, England, Scotland and Ireland, 
and carefully comparing the condition of the laboring classes of these countries 
with those of our own. 

Although always attending strictly to business affairs. Col. Cuningham 
has taken an active part in political matters, being known as one of the lead- 
ing Democrats of the State. In 1889 he was married to Miss Otelia M. Car- 
rington, of Virginia, daughter of Col. Henry A. Carrington, of the Confederate 

Army.

When Gov. Fowle was inaugurated, he appointed him the senior mem- 
ber of his staff, with the rank of colonel, and when Gov. Holt succeeded to 
the gubernatorial office, he requested Col. Cuniiigham to retain his position 
on the staff. 

Col. Cuningham has an excellent library and takes great interest in 
history and literature. He has also quite a reputation as an orator, and is 
known as an eloquent and forcible speaker. One of his most celebrated 
addresses was that on the subject of "Tobacco," and was delivered at the 
"Farmers' National and Pan-American Agricultural Congress," held during 
the "Cotton States and International Exposition,'' in Atlanta, in 1895. He 
has been in great demand in every part of the country as a speaker on literary, 
agricultural and political questions, and has thus made himself known through- 
out the nation, besides taking special interest in education, immigration and 
other cjuestions of the day. 

Col. Cuningham for many years steadily refused to become a candidate 
for any political office, though many fine opportunities presented themseh'es, 
but being finally persuaded to accept the candidacy for the State Legislature, 
he was elected in November, 1896. 

He was the caucus nominee and candidate of the Democrats for Speaker 
of the House, being supported by legislators representing 145,000 votes, and 
was only defeated by the fusion of the Republican and Populist forces. 

Although a patriotic man in the national sense of the word, he is pre- 
eminently a North Carolinian, and is always glad to aid his nati\e State by 
every honorable means. Thus Col. Cuningham now stands as the exponent 
of the "Old South" and the "New South," and his "Alma Mater" may 
well point to him as one of her noblest sons, and also a true type of the cul- 
tured Southern gentleman of today.

Xtttroduction* 



HFTER weeks of trial and tribulation, amid the busy round of 
numerous Class duties, the Board of Editors introduce to you 
the eighth volume of THE HELLENIAN. Not many new 
lines have been undertaken this year, but an effort has been made to 
enlarge upon and improve those features which have hitherto been 
deemed suf&cient for the Annual. 

To those who have shown such a kindly interest in the work 
we tender our sincerest thanks. Especially is it a pleasure to 
acknowledge our indebtedness and gratitude to Col. Benehan Cameron 
for the very substantial aid and encouragement he has given. What- 
ever of a success our book may be is due in no small measure to his 
generosity. 

With a due appreciation for contributions received from other of 
our friends, and with the hope that the Ninety-seven HEIvLENIAN 
may prove a pleasant memento of our college life, we are. 

Respectfully, 

THE EDITORS.

H Hvicf Review. 



THE University of North Carolina and the State of North CaroHna were 
born 'n the same year — 1789. During these one hundred and eight 
years the University has been the mightiest piece of social machinery 
within the borders of the State. It reached its ante-bellum climax in 1856 
with 461 students. It has reached its climax of genuine usefulness and power 
in 1897 with 400 students and the largest teaching force and the fullest 
equipment in its history. 

The University is non-sectarian in religion, non-partisan in politics, and 
as impartial as justice in social relations. It cherishes the fair ideal of investi- 
gation and discovery, but it places humanity above truth and seeks above all 
things to awaken all the people to the beauty of truth and the effectiveness 
of knowledge. The University rests upon the rock of public favor, public 
necessity and christian democracy, and it shall endure forever ! The spirit 
that pervades its life today is equality, opportunity, manliness, and self-help. 

In the following imperfect resume one may see the evidences of its 
wonderful expansion in the last six years : — 

1. Increase in numbers of one hundred per cent. 

2. Remodeling of its campus and buildings. 

3. Extension of the elective system. 

4. Establishment of the Chair of History. 

5. Establishment of the Chair of Pedagogy. 

6. Establishment of the Department of Pharmacy. 

7. Extension of the Medical Course. 

8. Establishment and growth of the Summer School. 

9. Establishment of the Chair of Biology as a separate department. 

10. Erection of Commons Hall. 

11. Admission of women to post-graduate work. 

12. Final consolidation of its libraries. 

13. Establishment of electric light plant. 

14. Establishment of the University Press. 

15. Increase of teaching force. 

16. Increase of appropriation.

Xtt^uguration of president Hld^i*^^". 



ONE OF THE most important events in tlie history of the UniversitA', 
probably the most important, was the inauguration, on January 27, 
1897, of Edwin Anderson Alderman, of the Class of 1882, as Presi- 
dent of the University of North Carolina. The Legislature adjourned over 
for the ceremony — an event without precedent in North Carolina — and more 
than one hundred members came from Raleigh to Chapel Hill bv special 
train in order to be present. The hall was tilled to overflowing with a dis- 
tinguished company, and the exercises were of the most dignified and 
inspiring character. 

Col. Thomas S. Kenan, 1857, was master of ceremonies. Ex-President 
Kemp P. Battle, 1849, to whose efforts is due the revi\al of the University 
in 1875, delivered an address of welcome on behalf of the faculty, and Mr. 
Robert H. Wright, 1897, spoke on the part of the students. The President 
was inducted into office by His Excellency, Daniel L. Russell, 1861, 
Governor of North Carolina. Professor Nicholas Murray Butler, of Columbia 
University, New York, delivered a congratulatory address as representing 
his University and the institutions of the East. 

Among the visitors present were : President C. D. Mclverand Professor 
P. P. Claxton, of the State Normal and Industrial College, and Misses Bing- 
ham and Massey of the same institution ; Professors D. H. Hill and W. H. 
Riddick, of the State Agricultural and Mechanical College; Professor W. 
L. Poteat, of Wake Poorest College ; President C. F. Meserve, of Shaw 
University, and the superintendents of the city schools of the State who had 
met at Chapel Hill to do honor to one of their profession who had never 
engaged in any work but that of a teacher, and had come through fourteen 
years of successful experience in puljlic school work to be the head of the 
State's greatest public institution. 

The enthusiasm that prevailed was most significant, and President Alder- 
man's inaugural address was a marvel of lucidity, force and eloquence, which 
held the undivided attention of his audience for more than an hour and a-half. 

When the Presidency of the Uni\'ersity became vacant last Summer, with 
remarkable unanimity the people of the State, particularly the teachers, and 
the faculty and students of the University, looked to Professor Alderman, 
and he was the unanimous choice of the Trustees. His experience of four- 
teen years, and his management of the University thus far, have justified the 
the wisdom of his selection.

Cl^'ip^l Rill and X^s Vicinity. 

THE SITE of the University was once called New Hope Chapel Hill. It 
was nearly all densely covered with forest, a favorite with hunters, who 
had their deer stands along the paths leading between the valleys of 
the creeks to the nort^ and south of the ridge. The road from Petersburg 
and that from Newbern crossed one another somewhere in or near Mrs. 
Graves' garden. In the northeast corner of the cross was a chapel of the 
Church of England, attached to St. Matthew's Church, Hillsborough. The 
minister, Parson Micklejohn, adhered to the British in the Revolutionary 
War, and hence the chapel, losing its preacher, went to decay and ruin. 
The wife of Rev. Dr. James Phillips remembered seeing some of the 
fragments strewing the ground in 1826. The Trustees of the University, in 
1793, established a village out of the lands donated to them, and called it after 
the second half of the original name. 

The hill is an upheaval of granite belonging to the Laurentian system, 
i. c, the system of rocks about the River St. Lawrence, or St. Laurentius. 
It is a part of the coast line of a primeval arm of the ocean, some 250 feet 
lower than the country west of it. This arm is here sixteen miles wide ; the 
eastern coast is lower than the western. In the course of time the bottom 
was elevated by some subterranean force and became dry land. Durham is 
situate on this ancient sea bottom. 

The rains falling on the Chapel Hill plateau run off by numerous brooks 
into two creeks, that on the north being Bowlin's, and that on the south, 
Morgin's Creek. These brooks and creeks have cut up the land into deep 
and sinuous ravines, and, therefore, there is a vast wealth of lovely flowers, 
gray crags, noble trees, graceful curves of hills, and beautiful, diversified 
scenery. 

PiNEY Prospect. — The village is about a mile from the primeval sea. 
The eastern extremity of the ridge on which it is situate is like a promontory, 
overhanging the sea. It was by General Davie, the father of the University, 
called Point Prospect. In old times point was pronounced pint, and hence, 
the neighbors, seeing on its summit some lofty pines, changed the name to 
Piney Prospect. 

From this summit is one of the loveliest views east of the Blue Ridge. 
In the distance can be seen the steeples and chimneys of Durham, the lofty

trees near Apex and Cary, while the smoke of the locomotives on the North 
Carolina and Raleigh and Augusta Air Line Railroads, curls gracefully in their 
tracks. Raleigh is about 200 feet lower than the eastern coast of the water- 
less sea, and is, therefore, invisible, but whenever sky-scraping rockets are 
sent up by its jovial citizens, their flame plainly flashes above the horizon. 
" The wave of woods and cornfields, and the abodes of men scattered at inter- 
vals," in the wide expanse below the observer, remind him of Byron's 
Dream. 

On the crown of Piney Prospect Hill, within a circular area, is a round 
rock which is the mythical tomb of Dromgoole, who, disappearing from the 
University and having never been heard of afterward, legend hath it, was 
killed in a duel and buried underneath. About a hundred yards to the north 
is a stone block in the shape of a chair, just large enough for two, called the 
" Lovers' Chair." To the south, following a winding path which leads by 
the Rifle Pit dug; by Wheeler's Cavalry as they retreated before Kilpatrick's 
pursuing column, then going down the hill and crossing the Raleigh Road, 
the walker comes to " Miss Fannie' s Spring," by whose brink, according to 
Hamberlin's beautiful poem, Dromgoole and his ladylove of that name, 
often sat discoursing sweet nothings. Afterward, wailing his tragic death, 
she frequented the spot until she joined him in the spirit land. 

About a mile toward the northeast from Pinev Prospect, on what was 
evidently an islet in the ancient sea, is a copse of woods on a hillside. Near 
its center is a cluster of massive rocks, and in their midst is a rude chamber, 
closed on three sides and partially covered overhead by the beetling cliff". In 
this dismal retreat a runaway slave, named Tom Morgan, lay hidden for many 
months, emerging at night to subsist by robbery. Such terrorwas caused by 
his depredations that a force of men, armed with shot-guns, scoured the forest 
and succeeded in finding his hiding-place and capturing the robber. This is 
the "Robber's Den," or "Black Tom's Lair." With boyish curiosity I 
visited it the day after his capture and gazed with awe and pity on his bed of 
leaves, his shoemaker's bench, the charred fire-logs and the bones of pigs and 
fowls, relics of his lawless life. 

Toward the southeast in the valley, about a mile distant, is the plantation 
devised to the University by its last owner, Mrs. Mary Elizabeth (Morgan) 
Mason, for the education of poor students. The bequest she requested to be 
called after her daughters, Martha and Varina, who died just as they reached 
womanhood. The portraits in oil of the young ladies, and of her husband. 
Rev. James Pleasant Mason, are by her request hanging in the University 
Library, and the authorities have added hers to the collection. The planta- 

16 



tion is one of the best in the county. On it is the burial lot of the family, in 
which, besides others, is a handsome white marble monument erected by the 
University in accordance with the wishes of the testatrix. 

On the south side of Morgan's Creek on this plantation, is one of the two 
famous Laurel Hills. Here in addition to trailing arbutus is a fine growth 
of the grand evergreen shrub, the botanical name of which is Rhododendron 
Catawbiense. Professor Asa Gray, in one of his books, says that this species 
never is found below eighteen hundred feet. But one of our professors, Dr. 
F. W. Simonds, sent him specimens and he promptly acknowledged his error. 
The other Laurel Hill is near the mill of Bennett and Oldham, which our old- 
est Alumni knew as Barbee's, our elderly Alumni as Cave's, and our middle- 
aged as King's Mill. To these hills annual pilgrimages are made by young 
men and maidens, intent on despoiling the plants of their beauteous treasures. 
Occasionally the dryads and naiads by way of punishment turn over the slip- 
pery stones in the creek-crossing under the tripping feet of the damsels and 
send them drenched and disconsolate homeward. They always emerge 
safely from the disaster, for " where there's a IViV/s there's a way " out of all 
such troubles. Haifa mile above the mill is a lovely defile between verdured 
hills, where the water sings gaily among the sweet odors of yellow jasmine 
and the bright colors of woodbine. This is " Otey's Retreat." Here, about 
three-quarters of a century ago, a young University tutor spent much of his 
time studying his books, or romantically recalling the image and the words of 
his ladylove, Miss Eliza Pannill. The lady was kindly and it was not many 
years before she journeyed to Tennessee, the wife of James Hervey Otey, 
Bishop of Tennessee. 

Higher up Morgan's Creek is Purefoy's Mill, famous in the old days, 
before railroads came, as Merritt's Mill, whose brand of flour was much sought 
after in our eastern counties. The pond here is a lovely sheet of water and 
is much used by the students when swimming or skating is the lashion. 

Still higher up this stream on its western bank is a notable hill declared 
by Professor Cobb to be the extinct crater of a volcano. Suspicion hath it 
that in this neighborhood, in a still wilder and more secluded spot, there was 
not very long ago another kind of " cratur," not at all extinct, but alive with 
all the fiery headiness of moonshine "old corn " — whiskey. But Professor 
Cobb and his geological class did not chance to look that "cratur" in the 
mouth. 

We will now cross the ridge toward the north, and descend into the 
valley of Bowlin's Creek. Rising to the north we see the Iron Mountain, 
where excavations show a goodly quantity of valuable ore, but up to this time 

17 



too far from coal to be merchantable. Lower down is a most romantic defile, 
called Glenburnie ; in it was the oldest pre-Revolutionary mill in this region, 
called Yeargin's. The mud-sill may still be seen. There is a story that 
when the Indian and the white man hunted together over these hills, a dusky 
maiden, Winona, loved a young pale-face. He returned not her affections 
and soon he vanished, his tracks ])ointing toward his home beyond the ris- 
ing sun. Painting her face and donning- her finery as if for a wedding festi- 
val, she paddled her canoe, singing plaintively as she went over the crown 
of the lofty dam, and was dashed to pieces on the jagged rocks below. Any 
listener can still hear the murmuring of her voice among the rocks, over 
which flows the cruel stream. 

Descending the stream we come to the " Valley Mill Pond" with " Clover 
Hill" overhanging it. This sheet of water is a favorite for skating and is 
much visited by those fond of walking. The fishing is indifferent. 

Below the mill the valley widens. On the north is an abrupt hill named 
rdter the first president, Dr. Joseph Caldwell, who, although a good Christian, 
was called, because of his skill in capturing wicked students, "Old Bolus," 
/. e., diabolus, or the devil. Mount Bolus gives a lovely view down the stream 
and in the distance. 

The hill on the south, opposite Bolus, is distinguished by having on it 
one great solitary pine, the last survivor of many such. Beneath it is a 
beautiful fountain, gushing freely Irom the hillside into a natural stone basin. 
This " Lone Pine Spring," as it is named, is the best specimen of a mountain 
spring in this neighborhood. 

On the country road going through this (Tenney's) plantation, on the 
left as it reaches the valley, there was, fifty years ago, a farmhouse, then inhab- 
ited by the negroes of Professor, afterward Bishop, Green, but prior to 
his ownership, by Benjamin Yeargin, one of the donors of the Lhiiversity site. 
My father, Judge William H. Battle, told me that in this dwelling, so remote 
from the L-niversity buildings, he, with President Polk and other students, 
had their table board, walking to their meals three times a day. 

The hills on Tenney's plantation afford a very distinct view of Durham, 
especially of Trinity College. This plantation and Piney Prospect were the 
favorite goals of afternoon strollers in the old days. Some deflected to the 
left and visited " Love Rocks," a fine cluster of boulders in the grove which 
is between Tenney's and the town. Others went off to the right by a wind- 
ing path into the woods east of President Winston's house, and found at the 
bottom of the hill a lovely spring, with the grand name of " Roaring Foun- 
tain." The place is very rugged and romantic, but was injured recently by an 

1« 



attempt to use the water in a hydraulic ram. Mrs. Spencer wrote a neat 
poem, "The Lament of the Naiad of Roaring Fountain," complaining of the 
desecration. President Winston replied with the " Answer of the Dryad," 
through the mouth of a croaking bull-frog. 

We are now near Battle Park, so called because the paths permeating it 
were cut by a former president of the University with his " little hatchet " as 
a recreation from his anxious University work. Seats may be found here for 
loving couples, bearing such romantic names as Trysting Poplar, Anemone 
Spring, Fairy Vale, Lion Rock, The Triangle, Over-stream Seat, Vale of 
lone. Glen Lee, Wood-thrush Home, Dogwood Dingle, Flirtation Knoll. 
One of the loveliest walks that can be found is through the southern edge of 
the Park to Piney Prospect, then by a winding path northward to the brook, 
then up its meanderings to the village, about two and a half miles in all. 

The cemetery is not well kept, but has some interesting monuments of 
students who died far away from their homes, of venerable men and excellent 
women, of a gallant Confederate colonel, Edward Mallett, a son of the L'ni- 
versity, killed in one of the last battles of the Civil War, and buried in his 
bloody uniform. His swords are hanging in the Library. 

Taking a road running in a southerly direction near the east wall of the 
cemetery, and, after following it for three-eighths of a mile, deviating to the 
right by a path through a growth of young pines, the pedestrian will reach a 
most romantic spot, the "Meeting of the Waters," where Chapel branch and 
Rockspring branch come together among num.erous gray rocks. The dense 
shade of the lofty trees, the musical murmur of the tumbling streams, the 
high bluffs covered with mosses and ferns, hepaticas and heart-leaves, the 
rustling of the leaves of the tree tops, and the perfect calm below, make this 
an ideal place for lovers of Nature. 

I close this paper by pointing out two more places of interest. One is 
the "Mineral Spring," near the point where Professor Holmes' beautiful, 
well-graded new road curves away from the steep and rocky old Durham 
Road. The other is the " Point of Rocks," about ten steps on the west of 
the Hillsborough Road, a little north of Mr. John Ward's dwelling. It is on 
his land, but he is a most kindly man, and I am sure will not object to visitors 
enjoying from its summit a most charming view of rolling hills and lovely 
vales, and all the many-hued beauties of forests and the setting sun.

EDWIN ANDERSON ALDERMAN. 






eDWIN ANDERSON ALDERMAN was born in Wilmington, N. C, 
May 15, 1 86 1. He was prepared for college at the Bethel Military 
Academy, near Warrenton, Va., and in 1878 entered the University 
of North Carolina. His college career foreshadowed a successful life work ; 
he was a leader in every phase of University life, and on graduation, besides 
receiving special honors in English Literature and Latin, won the Willie P. 
Mangum Medal for Oratory. 

On leaving college he immediately entered on his chosen work of educa- 
tion, being elected principal of the Goldsboro High School. In 1885 he 
assumed the superintendency of the Goldsboro Graded School, which by skill- 
ful organization he made prominent among North Carolina's public schools. 
From 1S85 to 18S7 he held the honorable position of president of the North 
Carolina Teachers' Assembly. In 1889, as State Institute Conductor he began 
a three years' canvass of the State, that resulted in untold good to the cause 
of education. His brilliant oratory, zeal, and intense earnestness drew large 
audiences, composed of all classes and conditions of people, and brought as a 
reward a great educational awakening from one end of the State to the other. 

In [892-3 he occupied the Chair of History and Literature at the State 
Normal and Industrial School, which he had done so much to establish, but 
resigned at the end of the year to accept the Chair of Pedagogy at the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina. 

His work in this capacity proved him a teacher of preeminent ability, 
and his course became at once one of the most popular and important in the 
curriculum. 

While occupying this position the task of organizing the University Sum- 
mer School was imposed upon him. So successful was he in this undertaking 
that the school is now one of the best of its kind in the whole country, and 
has made for itself a distinctive place among the State's educational institu- 
tions. 

In 1S96, the president's chair being vacated by Dr. Winston, the trustees 
unanimously elected him to the presidency of the University. Thechoice 
gave great satisfaction to all sections, parties and professions throughout 
the State. 

24 



Soon after his election the honorary degree of Doctor of Common Law 
was conferred on him by the University of the South. 

Dr. Alderman has been at the head of the University now for one year. 
During this time the same vigor in administration and skill in organization 
that characterized his previous work have been evident ; while his uniform 
frankness and fairness in all matters of discipline have made him honored and 
respected by all the students. 

Among the great educators of the country Dr. Alderman is not without 
honor. At the great national educational gatherings he has represented his 
State and the South with great power. His speeches are masterpieces in 
thought and eloquence. He is an honorary member of the Maryland Histori- 
cal Society and member of the National Education Association ; author of 
the "Life of Wm. Hooper," and "A Brief History of North Carolina."

Class of ^QJ, 



IT IS with mingled pleasure and pain that the Class of Ninety-seven comes 
for the last time before the public as an integral part of the University. 

We are all, of course, pleased with the idea of receiving our bachelor's 
degrees, the consummation of hopes that have sustained us during four years 
of hard study, but we are also pleased when we think that for most of us at 
least, our college days are o'er. 

We have indeed had many happy moments ' ' 'Neath the oaks of our old 
Chapel Hill," thrice dear to us who so soon must leave them, and we trust 
that we have made good use of the time given us for the development of 
intellect, of character, and of manhood. 

Let us hope that the many happy ties of friendship and learning formed 
here may not be forgotten, but may last ever cherished, ever green and ever 
looked upon as among the greatest blessings bestowed upon us. 

And now for the last time we greet our grand old Alma Mater with all 
the love and affection of appreciative men rising up in our hearts ; and as 
the curtain falls on our college career, we renew our pledges to rally around 
the " White and Blue " in fair days and foul, in the chilling winter of trouble 
and disappointment, and the balmy summer air of peace and prosperity.

r>istory of ^p8* 



To BEGIN a history of the "boys of Ninety-eight " at their entrance into 
College would be unfair to them ; for since our childhood days at the 
different preparatory schools, both in the schoolroom and on the 
athletic field, have we cheerfully and manfully tried to do our duty, and right 
often have we come out victorious. 

Realizing thus early that man must fight to win, when first we entered 
College we " put our shoulders to the wheel, " and we defy anyone to show 
a more enviable record. We have experienced some defeats, it is true ; but 
from them we learned valuable lessons. Many victories have been ours. 
All such serve to inspire us and to urge us to yet higher achievements. 

The number of boys who entered Ninety-eight's ranks was large com- 
pared with former classes, numbering nearly no. A good number have 
dropped out, but even now we have enough to graduate a larger number 
than in previous years. 

Ninety-eight has furnished good men for 'Varsity Football and Baseball 
Teams, such as Collier, Slocumb, Carson, Seagle, Busbee, and many others. 
For the Glee Club we have to show Lake, Gudger, Dey, Pfohl, Kearny, 
Askew, etc. 

But the ambitions and aspirations of the " boys of Ninety-eight " already 

extend far beyond our College walls. Some of us will be lawyers, some 

doctors, some preachers, some teachers, and some business men. Whatever 

be our calling in life, we shall all strive to do our duty boldly, freely ; ever 

holding dear the associations we formed when together ; and endeavor with 

increasing zeal to lead in professional life as we have on a smaller scale in our 

College life, having before us, to lure us on, the motto of Ninety- eight, 

" Semper idem, nunqtiam non parati.''

Ristory of *gg. 



IT IS a great privilege to write the history of Ninety-nine, the largest class 
that has ever entered the University, but it is difficult to relate in a limited 

space its many achievements. 

At an early date we bade defiance to the Sophomores, and when the 
time for our election approached we were not frightened by cries on the 
campus of" Fresh Election," but fearlessly announced the forthcoming event 
on the bulletin-board, and accomplished our purpose in spite of the furious 
onslaughts of the enemy. 

Washington's Birthday will always be remembered by the boys of 
Ninety-nine with peculiar pleasure, on account of the variety of medals 
received, from the fourth degree fool's medal down. For a year we have 
worn them with credit, but soon we turn them over to more deserving subjects. 

Although as Freshmen, we even so much as dared to black upper class- 
men, yet upon becoming Sophomores we denounced the practice and declared 
the sentiment of the Class to be against hazing in any form. In consequence 
of this anti-hazing spirit, the present Freshmen are the most cheeky and ver 
dant that the University has ever seen. 

We entered the Football contest for Class championship last season, and 
though we did not win first place, yet we have many reasons to believe that 
we shall head the list next year. 

Our Class maintains a high standing in the class-room, furnishes fine 
material for both gridiron and diamond, and is well represented on the Glee 
and Mandolin Clubs. 

Though we are justly proud of past achievements we are unwilling to be 
judged by the past alone, for that would sink into insignificance upon the 
contemplation of the friendly future which stretches out before us. 

Soon our happy hours with Conies and with Second English will be over. 
Commencement is fast approaching, when we shall be fully repaid in pleasure 
for the arduous duties of the Sophomore Year. 

After spending a pleasant Summer, widely scattered throughout the State, 
we shall again collect " 'Neath the Oaks of our Old Chapel Hill" to launch 
out boldly our individual canoes on the turbulent sea of Psychology.

Ristory of ipoo. 



^\ S THE year has slowly rolled by with its many pleasures and trials, it is 
r\ the duty of some one to tell the history of Nineteen Hundred, and 
although our record here is comparatively short, the historian takes 
pleasure in relating it, and in naming the achievements we have attained. 

In September of 1896 we came in large numbers as knowledge-seekers 
to the University, and since that time we have made a marked improvement, 
and proven ourselves worthy of being the first graduating class of the Twen- 
tieth century. 

In athletics, our Class holds an important position. We have furnished 
both the Football and Baseball Teams with several good players, and still 
have a goodly number of promising candidates for later years. Exclusive of 
the men we have furnished for the 'Varsity Football Team, we organized a 
splendid Class team, and came out second in the inter-class contests, defeating 
our old enemies, the Sophomores. 

About this time the annual Glee and Mandolin Clubs were organized, 
and again we proved our importance by giving to them some of the best 
material they have ever had. It is perhaps not too much to say that the 
success of the clubs during the past season was due in no small measure to 
the men we furnished. 

We have clone nothing that we are ashamed of, but at all times have 
borne the burdens that have been imposed upon us, and now as we are about 
to enter into a higher class may we keep our record as pure and clean as it 
has been during our Freshman year.

The Philosophical Club was organized in 1896, for the purpose of stimu- 
lating and encouraging original thought in Philosophy. 

At each meeting two papers are read upon some subject, representing the 
two conflicting ideas, followed by a general discussion in which all are invited 
to take part. The following papers will illustrate the nature of the work 
done in the Philosophical Club : 

"Mathematical Knowledge is merely a matter of Perception of Rela- 
tions." — S. B. Shepherd. 

"Mathematical Knowledge involves Pure Reasoning. " — T. L. Wright.

'^hc Musical 0'*3anizations. 

ALTHOUGH musical entertainments had been given now and then by 
crowds of students at the U. N. C. for a long while, it was not until 
the Fall of 1891 that any regularly organized and well trained club 
appeared on the scene. At this time Prof Karl P. Harrington, himself an 
enthusiastic musician, recognizing the fact that there was some vocal talent in 
College, consented to act as musical director, and as a result the first Glee 
Club was organized. T. M. Lee was chosen leader, and Howard E. Rond- 
thaler, business manager. By hard and steady practice the Club was enabled, 
on January 22, 1892, to give its first concert. This was in the University 
Chapel, but such was the success of the Club at home, that quite an extensive 
tour ot the State was soon taken. By a combination of happy circumstances 
these concerts became at once popular, and the fame of this first Glee Club 
has hardly been surpassed by any of its successors. 

But one has only to compare the first program with some of those since 
rendered to see that there has been a steady growth, both in the quality and 
originality of the work done. Instead of " Ching-a-Ling '" and "Johnny 
Schmoker,'' we find in the second year such selections as Liszt's " Weimer 
People's Song," Abt's "Good Night, Beloved," etc. This improvement in 
the nature of the selections has continued until, at present, only a high grade 
of music is used. At various times the Club has been fortunate enough to 
secure original productions from the pen of Prof. Harrington. The "Cradle 
Song," now known throughout the whole country, and " Peter, the Pumpkin 
Eater," were first sung by the L^. N. C. Glee Club. Other compositions by 
home talent have appeared, among which may be mentioned the " Song of 
the A. B.," written by Mr. E. P. Williard, and set to music by Prof Har- 
rington. 

The need of instrumental music had, however, been felt from the first, 
and, hence, the advent in 1895 of the Mandolin Club, under the leadership 
of Mr. L. M. Bristol, was welcomed with joy. A Banjo Club was organized 
the same year, with Mr. H. S. Lake as leader. Thus the Glee Club, by 
having only a portion of the program to prepare, could do its part better, 
while at the same time greater variety and interest were given to the concerts, 
(iraziani's " Nuit d'Amour, " and the "Weber Mazurka" will serve to 
indicate the character of the selections rendered by the Mandolin and Banjo 
Clubs. The former leaders of the Glee Club were T. M. Lee, Hunter L. 
Harris, E. P. Williard, and Chas. Roberson : of the Mandolin Club, L. M. 
Bristol and C. R. Dey.

THE ATHLETIC life of the University is of comparatively recent incep- 
tion, but its development has been rapid and satisfactory. The year 
1876 marked the first attempt at organized athletic effort, when the 
Athletic Association was established, with Mr. Julian M. Baker, of Tarboro, 
as its first president. Our first gymnasium, now occupied by The Commons, 
was built in 1885 by the Alumni, chiefly, however, through the kindness of 
Dr. R. H. Lewis, of Raleigh. Previous to this time, gymnastic exercises, 
consisting of clubs, bells, rings and horizontal bars, were engaged in, but 
they were given in the open air and were necessarily of a very desultory 
character. 

Baseball, fifteen years ago, was a new thing here. Certainly representa- 
tive teams were not thought of, and this sport lacked the stimulus always 
imparted by inter-collegiate games. The first baseball contest was played 
with Bingham's School about ten years ago, and notwithstanding the fact 
that our opponents were victorius, the impetus was given which was to cul- 
minate in our Southern championship team of last Spring. 

Football had a subsequent origin. The initiative in this direction was 
taken by the Sophomore Class team of the University and a similar team 
from Wake Forest. As in baseball, the first game was lost, and Captain 
Bragow had the misfortune to get a leg broken, this being the only serious 
accident that has ever occurred in connection with our athletics. The mod- 
ern game of football was finally introduced in this State, and Mr. Cowan, of 
Princeton, was secured as our first coach. The outlook was indeed promis- 
ing, and it seemed as though we had secured a strong foothold on the grid- 
iron, but in 1889 the Faculty restricted the game to the home grounds, and 
the Trustees went further, and suppressed it altogether. As might have 
been predicted, a period of athletic inertness followed as a result of this 
unwise legislation. In 1890, however, a new champion of athletics appeared 
in the person of Prof. H. H. Williams, who, with the assistance of such mem- 
bers of the student body as Geo. Graham and others, induced the Faculty 
and Trustees to reconsider their former decisions and permit the game 



142 



under Faculty supervision. The present Advisory Committee was inaugu- 
rated with Prof. Williams as the Faculty member. The latter recently gave 
way to Dr. F. P. Yenable, the value of whose services cannot be over- 
estimated. 

In the Spring of iSgr, Mr. Graves, of Yale, was secured as coach, but 
no inter-collegiate games were played that season. Football was not then, 
as now, confined to the Fall term. The baseball nine of this season was 
captained by Perrin Busbee. Trinity was easily defeated, but the first game 
ever played with our Virginia rivals was lost. In the Fall, our first football 
eleven was sent out and met defeat at the hands of Trinity, who at that 
time held the championship of the South. 

In 1892 our teams made much better records in both games. The base- 
ball squad, led by R. H. Johnson, was victorious in one of the Virginia con- 
tests, while in the Fall "the great eleven of '92," of which Mike Hoke was 
the intrepid captain, was developed. This team lost only the championship 
game with Virginia, but was victorious in a subsequent exhibition game 
with our rivals, which took place in Atlanta. 

The year of 1893 was not so encouraging. In baseball we won from 
Vermont, one of the strongest college teams, but performed the customary 
losing act when we stood up before Virginia. The football season of the year 
opened with bright "prospects, but closed very disastrously. Barnard was 
the captain, and the games with Virginia, V. M. I. and Trinity were lost. 
In this season we had the satisfaction of being the first Southern college team 
to appear on a northern gridiron, losing, however, to Lehigh by a handsome 
score. 

The following year witnessed a slight advancement. The baseball nine, 
captained by Roberson, divided honors with Virginia, and made a creditable 
showing in the encounter with Yale. Again football stock was quoted as 
unsteady and generally gloomy. Dr. Baskerville yielded to the call of his 
fellow-students and consented to captain the team. The regular game with 
Virginia was lost by a heavy score, but material was developed which was to 
make the successful team of 1895. 

The baseball team of 1S95 was handicapped in its Virginia game on 
account of the adoption of new rules, which excluded Oldham and Stephens. 
The Fall, however, witnessed our red letter football season. Gregory was 
captain, and Trenchard coach. Gregory, Merritt, Wright, Baird, Hurley, 
Collier, White, Whitaker, Moore, Stephens, and Butler, composed the team, 
which defeated everything in the South, except Virginia, and this game was 
properly ours, according to the Virginians' own statements. 

143 



In the Spring of 1896, the baseball team, with Stanly as captain, made 
a great record, and added very materially to our athletic reputation. Not 
content with winning from Virginia, this team defeated all the prominent 
Southern nines, also Yale and Lehigh, at the same time scoring on Princeton. 
The football team of this year was another failure. Captain Wright labored 
against heavy odds, and the record is against us. 

In tennis we have been uniformly successful. In 1894 Messrs. Bryson 
and Bridges defeated Virginia and Richmond College, and made an excellent 
showing against Yale and Princeton in the Inter-Collegiate meet at New 
Haven. 

Golf was inaugurated last year, and a flourishing club exists. Track 
athletics is receiving attention just now. Through the munificence of Mr. 
Lake, of New York, a track has been built, and a team has been in training 
this past Spring. 

Improvements have recently been made in our gymnasium work. About 
two years ago the apparatus was placed in the Memorial Hall, which is more 
commodious than the old one. Improved apparatus is being constant y 
added, and Mr. Mechling gives to the work his unceasing attention. Gym- 
nasium contests are held at stated intervals, and much interest is manifested 
in them. 

This imperfect account of the LIniversity in athletics reveals this fact, that 
in the past we have constantly labored against great odds, and almost unsur- 
mountable difficulties, and that with these removed, as they bid fair to be, 
the future will possess no record for which we may not strive, no success 
which we may not attain.

Cbc "Varsity VcU. 

Oh, the boatman's song, on the waters blue. 
As he rows along, may be music true ; 
But like ocean rough, in its rythmic swell 
'Gainst a rocky bluff, is the 'Varsity yell, — 

" Rough ! Tough ! 
We are the stuff! 
We play football, 
Never get enough ! " 

Bright nights in June, when dancing feet 

Recall the tune of waltzes sweet ; 

But in review your echoes swell 

More memories true — old 'Varsity yell, — 

"Rah! Rah! Rah! 
White and blue ! 
Vive la ! vive la ! 
N. C. U.!" 

Though merry the sounds of the hunter's horn, 

Or cry of the hounds on a irosty morn, 

The merriest lay that ever yet fell 

Is n't half as gay as the 'Varsity yell, — 

' ' Yackity yack ! 
Hooray ! Hooray ! 
Car-o-li-na 
'Var-si-ty ! " 

Now Wagner may be quite the thing. 

And dollars pay Calv^ to sing ; 

But dear to us, while not so swell, 

The cute little "cuss " in the 'Varsity yell, — 

" Hippity huss ! 
Hippily huss ! 
What in the h— 1 
Is the matter with us?" 

The song of a lass is a joyous sound, 
The clink of a glass, as the healths go 'round ; 
But leaving them far, there 's a joyous spell 
Which nothing can mar. in the 'Varsity yell, — 

" Hackie ! Hackie ! Hackie ! 
Sis ! Boom ! Bah ! 
Carolina ! Carolina ! 
145 Rah! Rah! Rah!"

'CJ^c OW Btu« Sweater. 

Let others sing of classic halls, 

Or oaks of Chapel Hill ; 
The beauty of its campus fair 

May their fond mem'ries fill ; 
But though 'tis faded, old and worn. 

To me there's nothing better 
Than tender thoughts that fondly cling 

Around the old blue sweater. 

Ah, stately are the caps and gowns 

In which collegians show 
The dignity of Learning's might. 

The power it is " to know ; " 
But stirring to the pulse of life 

Are young limbs free from fetter, 
The courage firm, the muscles strong. 

Beneath the old blue sweater. 

The heroes of the days of old 

May shine in song and story. 
As poets, or as troubadours. 

Or warriors grim and gory ; 
But modern girls like modern knights, — 

And what girl can forget her 
First glimpse of the White and Blue 

Pinned on the old blue sweater ? 

Ah, boys ! who 'neath the heat of May 

Or frosts of Autumn wore it, — 
In thick of game, or rush of play, 

How gallantly you bore it I 
And when, 'mid plaudits wild, we won, 

Old Time, I am your debtor 
For joys as keen as e'er were known 

By boy in a blue sweater. 

Not all Ambition's wildest hopes 

For which the man has striven. 
Nor all success of after years. 

Have such rare rapture given. 
To see our " back " the goal posts pass, 

On earth there's nothing better ! 
' ' A glorious run ! We win at last ! 

Hurrah for the old blue sweater ! "

Red Roses and ^htte.

THERE was a comical look of perplexity on Nellie Raymond's fair face 
as she stood before the dainty little table, holding a note in either 
hand and glancing from one to the other and then to the table where 
in odorous beauty lay two boxes of magnificent roses, the one filled with 
blossoms of the deepest crimson, and not a fleck of color on the snowy petals 
of the others. 

"How in the world am I to know from whom either of these boxes 

comes? I don't see why they couldn't inclose their cards instead of writing 

these provoking little notes that don't tell one anything," and again she 

gazed on the "provoking little notes" as if in them lay the solution of the 

mystery, but very evidently gaining therefrom but 

small consolation. 

" Was ever anything so provoking? Almost ex- 
actly alike ! I did promise them an answer to-night, 
and I want to wear roses, too, but — oh, it's bother- 
some ! " with a little stamp of the foot, "and I can't 
see either of them before to-night to try and find out 
what sort each one sent, and I want to wear his roses, 
but don't know which they are ! " 

"Hello, Nell !" said a gay young voice behind 
her. "What's the matter now? You lucky girl. 
Two big boxes of roses to one little girl, and yet you 
seem to be tearing your hair over something and get- 
ting ready to do the Niobe act, if you don't change 
your mind and laugh instead." 

" Oh, Harry, I'm so glad to see you. I'm in such 
a fix, and you must help me out, but I can't tell you 
anything about it.' ' 

"Oh, of course I'm a genius at other people's 
troubles. In a fix that you can't tell me about, and I 
must help you ! What is it all about, anyway ? " 
" Those,' ' she answered, nodding toward the roses. 

"Those. Well, you are funny. I don't see anything there to cause 
you trouble, unless some of your numerous ' danglers ' have been burglarizing 

168 




a florist's, and they have ' gotten ' you for receiving stolen goods. Is that it ? " 

" Don't joke, Harry, for I am in a fix really and truly, and something 
terrible will happen if I don't get out of it before to-night. Look here," 
showing him the two envelopes, " do you know who wrote these ? " 

"No, but if I couldn't write any better than either of them, I'd use a 
typewriter." 

"You're perfectly horrid. I don't see the good of having a brother 
unless he knows things and can do things for people." 

' ' Yes, none of us are very much good at mind reading, — a woman's mind 
particularly. You've told me nothing but that you are in a scrape about 
those roses, and since you sat down on me so promptly when I tried to 
guess, I don't see how you can expect me to do very much." 

" But, Harry, I can't tell you or any one anything about it." 

"Well, I certainly can't help you, then, unless you tell me what you 
w^ant me to do." 

" Here, then," desperately, giving him the two notes, " and then don't 
you say a word," and out of the room flew Miss Nell with cheeks vieing in 
color with the roses that were the cause of all the trouble, and two pink little 
palms over her ears to shut out the peals of laughter that she was sure would 
follow her. 

" Yon said you would tell me 7ny fate at the ball to-night. Will you not 
7C'ear my roses there if there is any hope for me ? 

' ' Yours devotedly, 

'^fackr 

And the second : 

" Will you not zvcar my roses to the ball to-night if the anszver you are to 
give me is the one I tvish f Yours as ahvays, 

" fack.'' 

read Harry aloud. " But I don't see yet what the matter is," he said, when 
at length his sister had come back. 

"Oh, can't you see? They got mixed. I was out calling when they 
came, and I don't know what sort either of them sent, and I don't know 
how to find out." 

"You little flirt ! So that's the trouble. And which Jack is it ? It's cer- 
tainly a good one on you," and off he went into peals of uproarious mirth, 
in which, despite herself, Miss Nell was compelled to join. 

" Help you out? Well, I guess not. You got yourself in it, and now 
you must get yourself out. You can't expect me to help some fellow to 
make love to my own sister, can you ? " 

169 




" Harry, you are mean, and I am not going to speak to you any more," 
and she didn't — for at least thirty seconds — then in a pleading tone : 
" Harry, p/ease tell me what to do. Never mind, though ; I know, but you 
must get me some more roses." 

The glorious October moon is flooding the landscape with 
its silver glamour, and the grounds, so beautiful by day with 
their semi-tropical luxuriance of foliage, seem almost like fairy- 
land, and the shimmer of the moonlight on a white wrap might 
well be taken for the sheen of the fairy wings. Within, the ball 
is at its height, the brilliant lights, the passionate throb of the 
music, the air heavy with the langourous odor of flowers, the 
flash of bright jewels and the flash of brighter eyes, the gleam 
of snowy shoulders and the sound of merry young voices — all 
are indeed suited for the fairies' court. Through it all Nellie 
Raymond, gowned all in pale pink, a pink rose in her golden 
hair, more on her corsage, others in her hands, her proud head 
thrown back, her eyes sparkling with enjoyment, moves, a very 
queen, ruling all men by the divine right of beauty. The 
women only are rebellious of her sway. Petted, flattered, 
complimented as she is, yet over all her enjoyment there is a 
little cloud rising — a little cloud no larger than the young fellow over there in 
the door, silent in the midst of the merry throng, for he has not been near 
her all the evening nor scarcely looked at her since the first swift glance, the 
look for his roses, the roses that she had not worn. But which roses did he 
look for? If she only knew. 

The beautiful strains of the " Waltz King's " most exquisite waltzes 
were filling the rooms as, pleading a prior engagement, she stepped through 
one of the large open windows out on to the veranda, where Jack Carleton — 
the other Jack — found her. 

"Isn't this our dance. Miss Raymond? I've been hunting for you 
everywhere. No, suppose we don't go in, please, there's such a crowd, and 
I want you to answer that question that you were to answer for me to-night, 
but,'' sadly, "I suppose I'm answered already, for you haven't worn my 
roses." 

"And I have n't even thanked you for them. So ungrateful of me, too, 
to forget it when they were such beauties, just the very prettiest I have seen 
this season, and I do thank you for them very much." 

But he was not to be put off" so. " Nell, sweetheart," he said, "listen. 
You know that I love you, that I have loved you ever since you were a little 

170 



thing', and that I have never cared for anyone else. Can't you tell me that 
you care for me just a little ? I have loved you so long — will you not tell me 
that you love me, too ? ' ' 

"Oh, Jack, I'm so sorry," and there was a break in the sweet voice, 
" so sorry. I like you ever so much, and think that you are the best friend 
I ever had, but I don't care for you that way. I almost wish I could, but I 
can't. But, Jack," seeing the look of pain on his face, "can't we still be 
friends? Need this make any difference in that ? " 

"I ask you for the whole loaf and you only offer me a poor little half," 
he laughed almost roughly. "Forgive me, I didn't mean that. I didn't 
know what I was saying. Don't worry, it will be all right after a while. 
I can't realize it now, it's such a blow, for I had been hoping so long 
and now I have nothing left, not even" — he broke off abruptly as some 
one came down the veranda toward them. 

"Miss Raymond, your mother asked me to bring you this wrap ; she 
fears it is too cool here without it. You don't know what you are missing by 
staying out here, the music is superb. There, it is starting again now, and 
I must find my partner," and without waiting for any reply he darted off. 

" Shall we go in? " Carleton asked. " Some of your partners will be 
looking for you. This is to be our good-bye," he added ; "I am going to 
Central America to-morrow. A friend wants me to go out therewith him. 
Good-bye ! " He seized her hand, pressed it for a moment between his own, 
carried it hastily to his lips, and he was gone. 

She stepped inside again, but her evening was spoiled now. Big-hearted, 
handsome Jack Carleton gone, and the one she had hoped to see had not 
been near her the whole evening. Thoroughly miserable, she sought her 
mother : " Mother, I'm so tired ; suppose we go home." And that night 
she sobbed herself to sleep and dreamed that she was the Princess Elizabeth 
and that the "Wars of the Roses" were being fought again, over her. In 
the morning she awoke, a very woe-begone picture of her usual bright self 

"Why didn't he let me tell him why I didn't wear his roses? And he 
didn't come near me the whole evening ? Perhaps he does n't care, but he told 
me he did. Well, I don't care either, then. Perhaps he will come to-day, 
though.'' And all that day she listened wistfully at every ring of the bell 
for his voice and step in the hall, and yet, when he did come, late in the 
afternoon, it was a very cold and haughty little maiden who greeted him, 
very different from the bright, winsome one he knew, and one who resolutely 
led the conversation into such impersonal channels as would give him no 
opportunity to say what he so much wished to say, and, strangest of all, 

171 



what she so much wanted to hear, but she could not keep it up long, — the 
ball of the evening before was a topic of too much importance to them both 
to be so utterly disregarded, and soon he saw his opportunity. 

" I had hoped so much that you would wear my 
roses there," he said. "Was I right in thinking that 
you meant that to be my answer? I can't take it that 
way, though I thought I could, and I must hear you 
tell me with your own lips that there is no hope for me 
before I can realize it. Which is it to be, Nellie?" he 
jjleaded, trying in vain to catch a glimpse of the down- 
cast eyes, "yes or no?" Then the eyes were raised 
to his for one fleeting moment, — and he knew. 

A few minutes later, a lovely face, all suffused with 
blushes now, was lifted toward his own and a soft voice 
murmured : " But, Jack, what color were those roses?" 
Then she told him the whole story, just as I have told 
it to you.

castles in the H^^« 

There is a time in youth's sweet prime 

When Hfe is bright and fair, 
And when we all, both great and small. 

Build "castles in the air." 
Though thej were fine, in olden time — 

The chateaux in far Spain— 
We know too well how soon they fell, 

And we were flat again. 

When first we quaff the joyous draught 

Of love, we never think 
Our girl so sweet has Western feet. 

And lacketh sore the " chink " ; 
When years have sped, and love has fled, 

And, with experience crusted, 
We're struck so on some other one. 

We know that castle busted. 

The Freshman young, with boasting tongue, 

E'er Sophs have worked their will. 
His locks are long, and gay his song, 

He thinks he owns the " Hill " ; 
But gone his cheek, blacked a I'Afrique, 

When Sophs have clipped his hair ; 
Lost is his dash, and with a crash, 

His castle 's in the air. 

A dancer bright, with pockets light. 

And many a bill that weighed. 
He thought to woo Dame Pleasure, too. 

So " German Club " fees paid ; 
With many a " stag " his spirits flag. 

In " leads " he had no share ; 
He froze till "blue," the german through,— 

His castle 's in the air. 

The man who toils o'er midnight oils. 

And hopes to make a " one," 
May think that brain will always gain. 

And trusts to work well done ; 
For Harrington he digs with force, 

Great is his sorrow there : 
None e'er got two — most men he threw — 

That castle 's in the air. 

The beauty, too, in white and blue. 

And feet that never lag. 
Who'll pose and sigh, and do or die. 

To wear one little " rag " ; 
Some other girl the " rags " unfurl, 

In them she has no share ; 
Gone is her style, and for a while 

Her castle 's in the air.

6^xtract9 from a jfunior's private Correspondence. 



/T^^J^^ 




Chapel Hill, January 7, 1897. 
Dear Ma : 

Although I am not in a psychological condition to write 
to-night, yet I will keep my promise to send you my grades. 
On psychology I made i ; on all the others except math 
I flunked (beg your pardon ; that's the college slang for "didn't 
pass "). On math I made 4 — the same old grade. I never could 
understand, till I took psychology, why I couldn't learn to appre- 
ciate mathematical processes. But Prof. Williams has made it 
perfectly plain to me. It is, as I see now, as he says, 
that there is no reasoning in it, but just a continual 
repetition of 2 and 2 make 4. (Certainly that's the 
way it has gone with my marks for three years ; by 
pyschological processes a man more commonly gets a 5. ) 
Then, besides, math, pure or applied, has to do solely with the crass 
external \sox\<\ (that word "crass," you know, is from Emerson, the fellow 
who wrote "A Yellow Aster," and "The Earl's Atonement"). But in 
psychology we deal in snb/ective individuality, and the Roman Catholic 
church, blooded stock farms, and the "flower in the crannied wall." 

I tell you, Ma, I have decided to drop math (I w^ould drop the others 
if they hadn't already dropped me), and make a specialty of psychology. 
I know you will approve of my decision ; for psychology is the most relig- 
ious study in college. Prof. Williams lectures now and then on " Philosophy 
and Life — 'Specially Philosophy," and talks real pious to us lots of times. 
Then he gets reports from us every week of the logical and psychological 
errors in the sermons we heard the Sunday before. You see, he does this 
to encourage church attendance. 

I tell you, I hope there will be psychology in heaven, though I can't 
help wondering who will be over there to teach it, and I believe we zvill have 
it over there ; psychology means the doctrine oi souls, you know. Of course, 
though, some of the boys are heathenish enough to swear that if there is any 
psychology in heaven, they hope it will be elective. 

^ ^ '^ '^ 
And then the course in psychology being so logical, is so easy. If it 
wasn't for having to study math all the hour on psychology class, I would 
enjoy that hour immensely. There is a fellow here who is wonderfully deep 

1T4 



and original ; and so he and Prof. Williams spend the hour in debate about 
the points on which they can't agree ; and so the rest of us just listen — or 
sleep. 

Then on examination it's perfectly easy to make i, though very few- 
make it, simply because they try to answer Prof, Williams' questions. Now, 
I learned long ago better sense than that ; and, besides, the Seniors put me 
on to it. Prof. Williams, you know, prides himself on originality, both for 
himself and his class. He urges every man to think for himself, and he has 
such a tender conscience himself that he always seems in mortal terror for 
fear some of us may believe somethinghehastold us. So just before examina- 
tion I get a volume of Comte or Schopenhauer out of the Library (as Prof. 
Williams doesn't believe a word either of these authors says, I think it is 
original for me to disagree with him and agree with them). Then I hunt up 
a few long quotations from these books and memorize them. (For this 
Schopenhauer is best ; Comte' s sentences are all too short and simple ; they 
are not long enough to strike one as very original. ) Then on examination 
I modify some of these quotations slightly (it would be dishonest, you know, 
to put every word just the same) and put them down as answers to some of 
the questions — it doesn't make much difference which ; Prof. Williams justly 
gives me credit for thinking for myself, and a i. 

How sorry I do feel for the poor fools who persist in trying to answer all 

questions in plain English. Plain English may suit a man like Webb — they 

say he likes it very plain ; but, of course, it won't go with a man like Prof. 

Williams. 

■>i. i^ -^f. ~>f. 

I tell you. Ma, a great change is coming over me in my way of looking 
at life and its majestic problems and overpowering truths. No boy with any 
brains at all can listen to Prof. Williams' lectures on class and his impressive 
addresses on "Philosophy and Life — 'Specially Philosophy," without losing 
all interest in the nonsense and frivolity of society (I spell it with a little let- 
ter now, you see). For instance, when for courtesy's sake we can't decline 
to go to a reception, we psychology students — I mean, of course, the ones 
who love it — don't waste our time in the nonsense of the hour, but we follow 
Prof. Williams' example and get off in a corner and silently watch the faces 
of that thoughtless throng. (And, of course, now and then we go over to 
his corner and compare notes with him — he allows us to do that.) I tell you 

it's deepening. 

;;< * ^ * 

But time fails me to tell you of half the advantages of this delightful 
course. Suffice it to say, as in the beginning, that I shall make it my spe- 
cialty ; all the more, since it is so much easier to master than math, for 

175 



instance, and so saves valuable time. I think I will know all about it by 
June, at the present rate. 

Tell Pa that I am sorry I can't make a specialty of math as he had 
hoped. But if he had ever studied subjective individuality , he would know 
that great minds do not run in the same channel. I will be the pride of 
the family in psychology as he is in math. 

Lovingly yours, 

Jim.

TO THE STUDENTS. 

Psychology teaches us that the epithelium cells of the 
human stomach are all hollow, and need to be filled with 
life-giving nutriment. Nothing performs this function so 
well as cow's milk.

five Minutes of football. 

IT IS a cold November day. The clouds hang low, in grey grimncss. 
There is an air of somber seriousness about them, and the wind, coming 

in fitful gusts, intensifies this impression. 

It is a football field. The grand stand, beribboned and decked with inter- 
twined colors, with hosts of white-faced inhabitants, whose flags and ribbons 
make gay its roomy interior ; the big, open stands that stretch around the 
field, likewise caparisoned and filled with excited masculinity — college 
students, alumni, business men, street gamins — form a sharp contrast to the 
gloom of the day. 

At intervals of thirty seconds for the last hour and a half these stands 
have been bursting into volcanic eruptions of sound and waving color, as one 
or the other of the two teams that are struggling out in the open space in 
front has had the advantage. Now the cheers subside, and for a moment 
the wind can be heard as it whistles around the corner of the grand stand. 
The twenty-two young men in canvas are jumping to their positions again. 
All eyes, all thought of those present are upon them. 

A game of football, between rival colleges, differs from a battle only in 
the fact that there are fewer casualties. The sentiment is the same. For the 
time being — to the players, to the partisan spectators— the issues at stake are 
as great. The same elements of character go to make a successful ball 
player as a successful soldier. Loyalty and patriotism are at the root of the 
worthiness of either. For the soldier, for the ball player, love of country, 
devotion to principle, sacrifice of self, are absolutely essential. In battle, the 
soldier, without spur of individual hate or enmity, must fight with all his 
strength against those who antagonise the things he loves. He must be part 
of a fighting machine, and do his part and face emergencies without ques- 
tion. So it is with the ball player. 

For an hour these two little picked armies have struggled and clashed 
together out there on the frozen, white-marked field. It has been a glorious 
contest — fast and fierce and unrelenting. Once the ball has been forced over 
the last one of those white lines, and one set of partisans has gone into ten 
minutes of delirium over their advantage. The first and the greater part of 
the second half have gone. The score is four to nothing, but those with the 
odds against them are fighting desperately. They are gaining slowly but 
surely. Those with them measure the distance to the goal-line and groan at 
its extent ; those other partisans measure it too, and think fearfiilly what a 
short distance it is. 

I So 



Suddenly the stillness is rent with a roar. It is like an explosion in its 
brief intensity ; like the thunder of a cannon, in the lull that follows 
ominously in the instant's wait while the gunners ram in another charge and 
peer out the enemy through the low-hanging smoke. Flags flutter spon- 
taneously with the outburst of sound. Hats bob wildly against the back- 
ground of the sky. Then all is still. You can hear the heavy breathings of 
the crowd, bent over, with its eyes agleam with the battle fever. You hear 
the rapid pulsating thump, thump, thump of the players running over 
the frozen ground. 

The cause of the outbreak is one of those rarely glittering successes in 
a game. The experts down on the side-lines will tell in their detailed accounts 
just how it was done. The people packed in the stands don't know and don't 
care. What they see is a little mass of men in striped jerseys that seems to 
bore its way through opposing forces. There is a swaying, twisting, grinding 
struggle for a moment. Then three men emerge from the crush. Two of 
them, fierce as stampeded buftalo, with their dirt-grimed faces and shaggy 
hair, thunder along in front of the third. This latter one looks small as he 
scurries along behind his blockers, his head tucked low down, his arm close 
around the precious ball. Two players spring at him savagely. One of them 
strikes the great blocker in front and falls prostrate on his face. The other 
is at the stocky carrier of the ball like a tiger. A hand decends upon his 
head, and an arm like willowy steel gives him a mighty shove. His impetus 
carries him down. He sprang an instant too soon. He has missed. 

Now the three men are clear, running in plain sight in the open. Now 
comes the roar, hushed, because all eyes are on Carolina's full-back. He is 
the one obstacle between that on-rushing trio and the goal-line. The goal- 
line reached and the game is lost. Upon him careen the three — the little 
man of springy steel behind his giant protectors — the fleet-footed one, with 
legs like engine pistons, and will like a cyclone. Will he, can he stand the 
shock ? 

The full-back realizes his responsibility in a general sort of way. He 
knows that he stands between defeat and victory ; that on him depends the 
superiority of two rival colleges for a year at least. Did he have time, as he 
rushes along, he would think of the stands packed with his college mates, 
biting their nails in nervous ecstacy. He would think of the crowd of 
students hanging around the telegraph office in the college town in anxious 
expectancy. He would think of the hundreds of alumni scattered through 
his State, looking up often from their work and pausing to think of ' ' the 
boys," and how their battle is waging. He would think, perhaps, of how 
some far-away girl, with white and blue ribbon on, is thinking of and fearing 
for his safety in womanly timidity, and of how she will skim the accounts of the 



game till she comes to those plays in which he figures. He would think, in 
short, how everything — life itself, for the moment — depends on the result ; 
the honor of his college, the months of training, of anxious care and worry. 

But he has no time to think, save generally. They are almost face to 
face. They are upon him ! The full-back's shoulders droop, and his head 
hangs low forward, like a bull-dog's. His legs seem to brace for the shock. 
His face, as one catches a glimpse of it, is a study. In its lines you can read 
an agony of suspense, hardened with grim determination. The blood on the 
jacket, the swollen lips, the bandage 'round the head, lend an air of weird 
desperation. 

He rarely misses a tackle, but now the crowd is anxiously silent. It is 
the crucial test. Dreadful fear, exultant hope, run through the opposite stands. 

Then comes the crash ! The full-back has dived headforemost through 
the mass. The two big blockers stagger with the collision and topple over 
his bent form. His arms seek that fierce little one with the ball, who strikes 
out viciously with his hand. 

But now a set of steel muscles closes around those oak-like legs. The 
roar thunders out again ! There is a squirming knot of four players on the 
ground. The rush has been stopped ! 

Now the stands awake again. Flags and hats fly once more ; canes with 
bright colors upon them wave enthusiastically ; men jump up and down, their 
arms swaying like Jacks-in-the-box. Both sides are cheering — the one for the 
brilliant gain, the other for the cool excellence of the man who filled the 
breach. The sound comes in a steady roar ; it sinks and seems to draw its 
breath, to peal forth once more in tumultuous triumph. 

Through all this sounds the shrill whistle of the referee, calling to the 
battle. The mass of players untwists itself The two big men and the little 
one with the ball emerge ; the other lies prostrate. A knot of players gather 
'round ; substitutes in sweaters hasten with water-buckets ; a doctor kneels 
at his side. 

Again the crowd is in anxious suspense, but presently there is a move- 
ment among the group of players. Three substitutes pick up the form and 
start across the field. Another strips off his sweater at the captain's com- 
mand. His face is alight with a great happiness, — he can do his part ! 

The stands on which his friends sit send up a cheer as the disabled 
player is borne past. He raises his head and waves a hand in response. 
Then a generous shout comes from all sides ; it is appreciation of an act that 
was noble because it was a duty. Any one of these twenty-two would have 
done the same. 

But the day is saved !

Recommendations. 

Dr. Thomas Hume, D.D., etc. : 

After taking the English courses prescribed by you I find myself, as a result, a mis- 
sionary in Central Turkey. The natives pronounce my interpretations of Shakespeare 
as good as any they ever heard. In regard to the order in your class room, I will say 
that it is no worse than that seen in the recent Armenian riots. 

Respectfully, 

I. N. Truble. 



Prof. K. Pomeroy Harrington, Esq., etc. 

Sir : I recently received from my agent a batch of your 2d Latin lectures, which 
we induced spies to distribute among the rebels. As a result their homes are desolate, 
their forces scattered and many of them plunge into the sea at sight of a piece of paper. 
Victoria Signo f You shall not be unrewarded by His Majesty the King.

Mr. a. Rheinstukisky, Director Sandwich Islands Conservatory of Music. 

Dear Sir : You could not do better than employ Mr. Avoirdupois Holmes as an 
instructor in your celebrated institution. His renditions are quite original, and the wild 
and phantasmagoric contortions indulged in by him during his performances will har- 
monize perfectly with the cannibal dances of the natives. He would never be recog- 
nized as a foreigner. Sincerely yours,

We slowly glided through the dreamy waltz, 

Her soft, white hand — which 'twas my hope to gain- 

I gently clasped, while two divine brown eyes 
Looked slowly up to mine, then down again. 

Outside the hall we strolled, until we found 
A shadowed corner large enough for two, 

And there I told, mid music's swelling sound, 
That old, old story which is ever new. 

My arms encircled close her dainty form, 

Her little head upon my shoulder lay ; 
The music and the dance had lost their charm, 

All thoughts, except of her, were far away. 

But happiness like this can never last, 
As I was doomed to very soon discover ; 

My room-mate's were the arms that held me fast, — 
I waked, my vision gone, when he turned over. 

C, '96. 

I took up my tablet 

To write you a sonnet, 
But no thought of mine 

Would form in words on it — 
A rondeau I next tried 

In praise of your bonnet, 
But equally luckless 

I did abandon it ; 
Naught else could I think of 

Save just this — "Dog gon' it."

E WAS A FAMILIAR sight on the College campus, was 
old Jerry, a bent old negro, with palsied hands, and a little 
basket of peanuts, or apples or cherries in their seasons, for 
sale to the students, and always with his cheerful greeting 
when any one addressed him : — 

"Morning, boss man; hope you are well this morn- 
ing," and always ready to talk on everything — save one subject only. 
" lerry, who burnt the belfry?" never failed to bring about an 
indignant turning away and the reply, " Students' bizness is students' 
bizness, dat's what it is, an' you hadn't oughter talk like dat," and 
the old man would move slowly away, shaking his head and muttering to 
himself in indignation that any one should seek to pry into his secret, for 
such it was, and one carefully guarded by him through long years. 

Years ago, before the wave of civil war had swept over the country, 
leaving all the Southland in wreck and ruin after its passage, the old Univer- 
sity was the educational center of the Southern States, and here came the 
favorite sons of the South to garner knowledge. Incidentally they helped 
along the hours as they best might in the sleepy little town by all manner of 
pranks on the faculty, the town's people and on each other, the recollections 
of which have come down to this day, losing a little of their original amount 
of truth, taking on much of the broideries of imagination in the handing 
down to the successive generations of wide-eyed young Freshmen, gaining 
now, perhaps, for the first time some inkling of the fact that the staid, gray- 
haired gentleman, irreverently called "the old man," may have been one of 
the gayest of the gay young birds of his college days, and therein finding 
vast stores of consolation for misdemeanors, past, present and to come. 

In those old days the College bell, the famed of song and story, was not 
in its cupola in the " Old South," but was swung in a wooden belfrj' tower, 
whence its pealing notes summoned to the eai^ly prayers. Its sweetest music 
told that the hours of recitation were past, but withal it was a loved sound 
ringing out the hours in its deep, melodious tones. However, irreverent 
youth is no respecter of persons, as even " Pres." himself was well aware, 
and fun must be had. 'Twas a necessity of existence then, as now. The only 
question was what to do, and how to do it without getting caught, for even 
in those unprogressive days the faculty had the unpleasant habit of catching 
the ringleaders and giving them a bad quarter of an hour in faculty meeting, 
and they were dreadful things — those faculty meetings. What to do, then, 
187 



was the question. Of course, it must be something to create excitement ; it 
were no fun else. If it were a mystery, so much the better ; and that there 
was a spice of dangerous mischief in it, something that would make "the 
faculty ' ' suddenly metamorphose their staid, be-spectacled selves into a 
corps of amateur detectives, nothing more could be left for any one to 
desire. It was moved, seconded and unanimously carried that something 
must be done. But what ? Many plans were proposed, discussed and tabled, 
when with bated breath — " Burn the belfry." Some mind had risen to the 
great emergency, the plot was in train, and secrecy was the word. 

" The witching hour of midnight" has passed, and in that hour when 
no restless cock crows, best fitted of all for deeds of darkness — or light — as 
this, they meet again, and soon the little red tongues go lapping, licking 
about the old timbers, like some serpent tonguing over its victim. There is 
a rush and a roar, as the tire, sure now of its prey, darts upward, cutting a 
vivid gash in the blackness, shining full in the face of old jerry — young 
Jerry then. What means were used to silence him no one knows, but 
effectual ones they were, for to his dying day he would never tell who was 
concerned in it. The rest of the story if you liked, but that never. " Stu- 
dents' bizness is students' bizness." 

"I was young den, boss, an' was courtin' one of dese hifalutin', big- 
gitty yaller gals dat lived on one of de plantations 'bout three miles from 
town, an' I'd been out dere dat night, an" when I was comin' back I heard 
somebody projickin' 'round dat belfry, an' I says to myself, ' Dat's some of 
dem devilish students up to some meanness or nudder, an' I'm goin' to see.' 
An' dey was, too. Dey'd bring a whole lot of chips an' leaves an' trash, an' 
put 'em all around an' soak 'em wid oil, an' dey nigh about painted her with 
it, an' den dey touched her off; an' de way it do burn was a sight ! I'd seed 
what dey was up to, an' was just gwine away, case I knowed dat wan't no 
salubrious place for no nigger 'bout den, but dey seed me an' cotch me, an' 
when dey lemme go I didn't stay 'round dere no longer ; no sah, an' I 
never heard nothin' 'bout dat belfry burnin' till nex dav nother, you be- 
lieve me. Man, she suttinly was a fire ! Dese bonfires you 'uns has dese 
days aint nothin' to it. De nex day it was jus like you'd stirred up a bee- 
gum wid a stick. De president was runnin' about like er ol' hen what 
aint got but one chicken an' don't know where dat one is, an' all de res' of 
de faculty is mighty nigh as bad, but it don't do no good, for dey never 
find out who did it." 

" Well, Jerry, who did do it ? It can't hurt any one to tell now ; " — but 
" Students' bizness is students' bizness ; dats what it is," would come back 
to me indignantly, as the old darkey hobbled off; so now that old Jerry is 
gone, "Who burned the belfry ? " like the famous "Who hit Billy Patter- 
son? " will go down to posterity one of the unsolved problems.

Hnswers to C<5^*^^spondents. 

(In this column the Editors will endeavor to answer any questions of general interest.) 

Constant Reader.— We have not a biography of E. L. Harris at hand, but learn 
from the "Cyclopedia of Names " that 'as a youth he was very /a^/. He has gotten 
over this entirely. 

H. C. C-\v-L-s, Jr. — (a.) Your hair is a handsome red. {b.) A good face-wash 
for you would be a mixture of equal parts of sulphur, sweet gum and turpentine. 
Apply vigorously every ten minutes with a stiff wire brush. 

Wji. C-n. — This is not a matrimonial bureau. A\'e will say, however, that we do 
not know a blonde lady who would like to correspond with a single gentleman for fun. 

H. H. W-M-s.— (fl.) What is life ? {b.) What am I ? (c.) What is truth ? {a.) Look 
in any reputable dictionary, [b.) We would prefer to answer by private letter, (r.) 
Adolphus Williamson Mangum is the best authority. 

P. H. El-v. — We do not know of anything that will remove ink from postage 
stamps, {b.) You are right, it is bad form to conceal even " Kings " up your sleeve. 

J. H. Andr-ws. — You will doubtless have some difficulty in finding a college where 
diplomas are to be purchased with brass. 

W. D. T-v. — We cannot answer your question, " Does love come to every man ? " 
There are a great many base imitations of love, and one has to learn by that divining 
rod, instinct, to tell which is true love and which is not. 

B-R-T-N Cr-ge. — (rt.)We confess our inability to inform you of the number of steps 
to Jacob's ladder, [b.) John Milton was the author of "Paradise Lost." 

E. M. L-ND. — You inay rest assured that you will not be alluded to in this publica- 
tion as " Freshman " Land, and that nothing will be said about the difficulty of descend- 
ing the South Building steps after the lights are out. 

Sk-ts N-wby. — It is not very probable that Queen Victoria will care to correspond 
with you with matrimonial intentions. 

F. A. G-DG-R. — [a.) We regret that we could not find space to print yowx name in 
the Hellenian as many times as you suggested, but we have done the best we could 
for you. (b.) From your description of yourself we should unhesitatingly pronounce 
you a very swell dresser. 

F. C-K-R.— Coffee is not commonly supposed to possess any into.xicating properties. 
The fact that it occasionally makes you "tipsy " is due, no doubt, to some constitutional 
derangement. You had better consult your physician.

"C^^^ second J^rxdgc of Sigl>s. 



One more unfortunate, 
Making no moan, 

Rashly importunate, — 
Williams has thrown ! 



Speak to him tenderly, 
Treat him with care ; 

Fashioned so slenderly. 
Sad is his air. 



Look at his garments. 
Clinging like cerements ; 

Limp hangs his hair. 

Think of him mournfully. 

Judge him not scornfully, — 
You have been there. 



Where the lamp quivers. 
All the night shivers 

This luckless wight. 
His the one casement, 
From belfry to basement, 

Showing a light. 



Thus he worked boldly. 
But Williams coldly 

Ambitions slew. 
Picture it, think of it — 
You on the brink of it — 

That man he threw. 



Sore from philosophy, 
Mad from psychology. 

Wishes he now 
Swift to be hurled 
Anywhere, anyhow. 

Out of the world ! 
190 



Dr. Battle (on Political Economy class) — "Mr. Craige, where would 
you go to learn exchange ? " 

Mr. Craige — "To Political Economy, I suppose." 



A Question : Why is Frank Rogers like a brook running over pebbly 
ground ? 

The answer : Because he is noisv but shallow. 



Prof. Harrington (on 5th Latin exam) — "Explain the reference in 
Progenies Thial f ' ' 

Mr. Cheek'' s reply — " I have doubtless heard of this distinguished lady, 
but cannot now locate her." 



Dr. Battle — " What is a court-martial, Mr. Nichols?" 
Mr. N. — He's an officer in the court, sir." 



Conundrum : Why is Joe Graham like flannel? 
Because he shrinks from water. 



Dr. Venable (on Chemistry class) — "Mr. Lockett, how does H Br O 
occur? " 

Mr. Lockett — " It occurs in nature." 

Dr. Venable — " No ; like some students, it has to be prepared." 



A New Book : ME on the Gridiron and Diamond ; including the 
Famous Story, "How I Defeated Yale" ; by Joel Whitaker. Revised and 
enlarged by Mr. Faison. Price 50c. Mock Millan & Co. 



Why is Tom Green like Horace Greeley ? 

Because he has the same motto — " Young man, go West ! "

mill. 

Wanted : W. S. Howard wishes to go into partnership in some pay- 
ing business (partner to furnish the capital). 

Wanted : W. J. Nichols desires a position in a soap factory. 



A Mean Man : That was probably the meanest man in the University, 
who left the reading room door open on another's back in order to take his 
paper when the latter got up to shut it. 



A Surmise : It may be true that swelling pride is punctured here on 
first inflation, but some people evidently ride puncture-proof tires. 



A Sermon : Sam Jones says, to wink is wicked. Harry and Askew 
are irrevocably lost.

^hc Cc>Uegc Dictionary. 



Advertisement — From Latin a^, to, and vertere, to turn, /. e., turn 
to the pages of the Hellenian when you wish to find the most profitable 
medium through which to make yourself known. 

Boot — To chin, wool, pull on ; an artificial expression peculiar to polite 
social intercourse for the more natural but less elegant form "to pull his 
leg." The choice of the term boot was suggested by the presence of that 
article on the member elongated. 

Broke — The state of most U. N. C. students after attending a circus 
at Durham. 

DiMHANKER — A word, the derivation and meaning of which are un- 
known. It was imported to Chapel Hill by F. Asbury Gudger, Esq., and is 
used by him alone. 

Fail — To flunk, slump ; from (i) root fal, meaning down, and (2) lo, 
to call ; e.g., " The /f-wing herd winds slowly o'er the lea." Hence the 
call donni which the student receives. The loss of final may have been 
suggested by the escape of a similar sound from the lips of the victim. 

Greenness — A more or less universal quality. Seen to best advantage 
in fresh Boykin. 

Hit the Ceiling — Synonym of fall ; an idio(t)matic expression 
formed on the analogy of " hit the pipe," from hit, to ask and not receive ;

incident to the refusal. 

Jewelry — That which J. Webb, Jr., always keeps conspicuously dis- 
played about his person. 

1 195 



Kennith Dunston — A celebrated character, the son of Professor 
Dunston, tonsorial artist. His chief claim to renown lies in the fact that he 
sometimes wears President Alderman's hat and vice versa. 

Luck — That which pnts you through on Collier's exams. 

POMPOUSNESS — Slightly more pompous than pomp. The special char- 
acteristic of Mr. J. H. Andrews. 

PsYCHOLO(;v — A study usually taken by Juniors ; meant primarily to 
" Please all the foolish and puzzle all the wise." 

Take a Sxeak — A colloquialism peculiar to the South Building inhab-

Fools are our theme, let satire 

be our song. 
Its notes by distance made 

more sweet. 
Serene in the lap of legends 
old. 
Whom unmerciful disaster 
Followed fast anci followed faster. 
Like sentinels aged and mighty, they keep 
Their vigil on the green. 

A scholar and a gentleman. 

An artistic design in a golf suit. 

I was not always a man of woe. 

As mild and gentle as the cradled babe. 

A most valuable and interesting specimen. 

Thy powers are nearer death than thy conceit. 

If he is but young and fair, 

He has the gift to know it. 

In his brain, 
Which is as dry as the remainder biscuit 
After a voyage, he hath strange places cramm'd 
With observation, the which he vents 
In mangled form. 
Remains a difficulty still, 
To purchase fame by writing ill.

II. 

I'll tell them how— a Freshman green— I came to college here 

('Twas early in the harvest time, and '89 the year), 

And how I looked with pleasure to the coming month of June, 

As I walked across the campus to the whistling of a tune. {AH ivhistle.) 

III. 

I'll tell them how the Sophomores would ring the college bell, 
And how they took the clapper out and hid it in the well ; 
And how they blacked the Freshmen, and greased the chapel seats, 
And cows put in the belfry tower with acrobatic feats ! 

IV. 

I'll tell them of my boarding-house, and how the tough beefsteak 
Was tanned and sold again as hide, the finest boots to make. 
I'll tell them how the bill of fare was varied every day. 
So that we read it forward once, and then the reverse way ! 



V. 

I'll tell them how, as Junior, I broke so many hearts 
That Cupid, doubtless, had to buy a new supply of darts. 
A Senior, too, I strolled around with dignity and pride, 
And for my verdant Freshman days I wished again and sighed. 

VI. 

But I'm going to be an M.D., or else and LL.B., 

I'm thinking of an A. j\I., perhaps a Ph.D., 

And I'm thankful, as I stand here to-day, a full A.B., 

That the Faculty have not conferred the proud degree, " N.G.'

0"ly a Bow of Ribbon. 

Swiftly the twilight deepens, 

Long since the sun has set ; 
Seated alone, in sadness, 

He thinks of the past with regret. 
And holds in his hand a token, 

A bow of white and blue. 
The emblem of so many joys, — 

The colors of N. C. U. 

CHORUS. 

Only a bow of ribbon, 

Of ribbon white and blue, 
Faded, soiled and crumpled, 

A token so true. 
Only a bow of ribbon. 

Of ribbon white and blue, 
The emblem of departed days, 

The colors of N. C. U. 

Now in the dusky twilight 

Appear the by-gone scenes, 
He is again at college, 

Unconscious of all but his dreams ; 
While seeing again his classmates, 

His friends so tried and true. 
He shares with them the many joys 

At dear old N. C. \J. — C/wnis. 

Leaving the noble campus, 

On the athletic field 
He sees the '\'arsity playing. 

And never yet known to yield ; 
The boys are madly shouting, 

Upholding White and Blue, 
And he now wears that faded bow 

At dear old N. C. U.—Owrns. 

Although he's old and feeble, 

His end is drawing near, 
\\'aking, he still remembers 

The college to him so dear ; 
Still loving the grand old 'X'arsity, 

To whom all praise is due. 
He always keeps that faded bow. 

The colors of N. C. \]. — Chorus. 
206 



H Song for Carolina, 



All hail, Carolina, 
There ne'er was a finer, 

More noble college history than thine ; 
We'll sing to thy glory. 
So far-famed in story, 

And garlands of sweet music for thee twine. 



Shout, sing, let it ring. 

Shout Carolina o'er and o'er ; 
The welkin above her, with saint, sage and lover^ 

Shall sound the swelling chorus evermore. 

In contests with error 
Thy sons feel no terror. 

But faithful battle ever for the right ; 
For truth is their token 
And courage unbroken. 

They stand among the foremost in the fight. 

With Yale or with Princeton, 
At home or at Winston, 

Thy sturdy athletes play a winning game ; 
On gridiron, diamond — 
(A bad word — can't rhyme on't") — 

The White and Blue will triumph e'er the same.. 

The Glee Club before you 
Will try not to bore you, 

But keep the music up to concert pitch ; 
With songs gay, pathetic. 
Amusing, athletic, 

They leave you the decision which is which.

IN MEMORIAM. 



EDWIN WRAY MARTIN was born in Arkansas on November 20, 1868, 
and died at Pine Blufif, Arkansas, on December 29, 1896. He was a 
student at the University of North Carolina, in the Law department, 
in the years 1889-90 and 1S90-91, and the degree of Bachelor of Laws was 
conferred upon him in June, 1891. 

He was the founder and first Editor-in-chief of the Hellenian. He 
was one of the founders of the Order of Gimghouls. He was a loyal and 
devoted member of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity. 

Wray Martin was a leader. He was honest, unselfish, ardent. When 
his face was set toward the goal, his energies knew no respite till his purpose 
was crowned with success. 

He was an affectionate friend. He loved honor, and wore upon his breast 
the white flower of purity and truth. Never was there more loyal friend. 
To him friendshij) meant forbearance and trust and defence of good name 
and love. 

A mortal malady for months held him in its tightening clutch. Bravely, 
uncomplainingly he awaited the approach of the dread messenger. His last 
thoughts and words were of his friends at the LIniversity of North Carolina. 
His dying act was, with weakened hands, to take from his breast the Maltese 
Cross of gold, the emblem of his fraternity, and with gentle voice direct 
that it be sent to one of his friends in the Old North State. 

He is gone. Let us believe that as he went his eyes fell upon fields 
unutterably bright, and his ears heard music such as never mortal ears have 
heard. Our comrade is dead. God rest him !

Zoolog}' teaches that the hairs of the 
head are hollow, and contain an oil that 
gives them life. In clipping the hair 
with scissors, this hollow is left open, and 
the hair loses its life-giving properties. 

I have a machine named the Singeing 
machine, which removes the hair and at 
the same time closes up the hollow, 
causing the hair to retain its life-giving 
properties, and therefore stopping the 
hair from falling out or dying, and giving 
it a soft growth. 

Call and examine this machine and 
have your hair singed. 

Special attention given to dressing 
Ladies' Hair. Cutting done with ex- 
quisite and artistic skill by the old Uni- 
versity Barber of twenty years' experi- 
ence. 

The singeing machine is highly rec- 
ommended by scientists throughout the 
country. Very respectfully,
