Martville College, Sept. 1875.
One of Fred, Loring's College Poems.
TKIi OJ.T1 PKOFESSOU.
The old professor taught no more,
But lingered round the College walks ;
Stories of him we hoys told o'er
Before the fire, in evening talks.
I '11 ne'er forget how he came in
To recitation, one March night,
And asked our tutor to hegin :
"And let me hear these boys recite."
A* \re passed out, we heard him say,
"Pray leave me here awhile, alone,
Here in my old place let me stay
Juat as I did in years long flown."
Our tutor smiled and gave consent,
Rose courteous from his high backed chair
Then down the darkening stairs he went
Leaving the old professsor there.
Prom out the shadows, faces seemed
To look on him in his old place,
Fresh faces that with radiance beamed —
Sad faces that had lost their youth,
Although in years they still were young,
And faces o'er whose love and truth
The funeral anthem had been sung.
"These are my boys," he murmuijed then,
"My boys, a? in the years long past;
Though some are angels, others men,
Still as my boys I hold them fast.
There's one does n't know his lesson now,
That one of me is majdng fun.
And that one's cheating — ah ! I see — *
I see and love them every one.
"And is it then so long ago
This chapter in my life was told ?
Did all of them thus come and gOj
And have I really grown so old?
No ! Here are my old pains and joys, .
My book once more is in my hand,
Once more I hear these very boys,
And seek their hearts to understand."
They found him there with open book,
And eyes closed with a calm content ;
The same old sweetness in his look
There used to be when fellows went
To ask him questions and to talk,
When recitations were all o'er ;
We saw him in the college walk
And in hi? former place no more.
The verv word enthusiasm fires
the soul and kindles the eye. Is
it good oris it bad? The. least
we can &ay is that alone it is a
doubtful quality. Indeed it is hard
to conceive of enthusiasm in the
abstract, for in our acquaintance
with it we ever find it combined
with some other quality; as gold
familiar to us in ornaments is an
amalgam. Mated with ignorance,
it has fed the alligator of the Ganges,
offered bloody sacrifices to Mojech,
and strewed the plains of Palestine
and deserts of Arabia, alike
with mistaken Crusaders. and
still more deluded devotees of
Mecca. Unbalanced by sound
judgment, ^ in the person of a John
Brown, at the head, of a band of
Gileadites. it. may ruin a good
The French enthusiastic- for lib-
erty, kno^ little of it experiment-
ally. Some" one has said that, the
reason is that "they make the re-
publics before they make the repub-
licans." It would seem that
Johnson had them in mind when,
he wrote; "A zeal for, liberty is
sometimes an eagerness to subvert,
with little care what shall be estab-
lished. " Joined to knowledge,
and* guided by reason it becomes
the highest type of zeal — that
'•blind conductor of the will."
Thus we have seen it' in our day
rally "a millii n freeman more" to
swell the ranks fighting for the
Not only in the service of Mars
is enthusiasm useful. Here let us
pause a moment. Perchance "use-
ful' is not a word to be linked with
a name suggestive of '"confused
noise, raid garments roll'd in blood."
So, we of the Nineteenth Century
have been led to think, since we
me! at Geneva. If we live to see
the time when « - war shall be no
more, "will it not be because "knowl-
edge shall be increased?" Then
the world will have a large reserve
of enthusiasm to expend upon a
more worthy cbject.
From the din of battle, wanting
in the first clement of harmonious
sound, Tubal turned with listening
ear, to the gentler notes of peace;
and from theliquid melody of birds,
his enthusiasm deduced the musi-
cal scale; so says legend.
The object of our thought seeks
and finds for itself many other
channels. The poet glows with
his latest inspiration in rhyme; and
the sculptor exults in his new-born
idea in stone. His passionate ar-
dor engages the statesman in poli- I
tics; the scientist in scientific j
exploration and discovery, 'Ihis
enthusiasm dives into the great
deep, bringing up Ccean's living I
treasures to be ranked and classified
by the naturalist; mounts aloft and j
tells the distance of the glittering- j
best. Again, in the service of j
science it scales the Alps and dares j
eternal snows. It places' a few :
men on Mount Washington's lofty
height, there to spend a solitary
whiter season, amid thunders and
, lightnings, and thick clouds, akin
; to Sinai's. *
So necessary is it to success
j and even life, in the estimation
j of the commander of a Polar
| expedition, that- to keep it alive,
he resorted to some such expedi-
ent as that of celebrating the
birthdays of his crew. It has
tunneled Mt. Cenis, working at
both ends and meeting in the
very heart of the mountain with
wonderful mathematical precision.
; It proposes a railroad under the
English Channel, and meditates
| a voyage across the Atlantic in a
balloon. It has entered the very
heart of unknown Aetheopia, and
put an end to slavery on the
western coast of Africa, thus e-
recting to the memory of him
who was the instrument of its
accomplishment, a" Living-stone"
monument. His deeds live after
\ blinded zeal for the so-called
"holy Catholic church," hardened
the hard heart of Queen Mary
when she replied to those who
plead for Cranmer's life ; "All your
voices are waves on flint. The
heretic ?nust burn." « dome's en-
thusiasm dies only with Rome.
Child of the true Church; look thou
to it that her enthusiasm for her
own, excel not thy devotion to the
cause of One higher than His so-
called "'vice-gerent on earth.""
The eye. — the mirror of the
soul. — expresses enthusiasm, at
times, as eloquently as can words.
Yet this is often hidden under ex-
cessive timidity, as in the case of
Oowper's childish year?, who has
been described as having u a soul of
fire." It is as difficult to draw out
any evidence of enthusiasm from
some people as to strike a light from
a defective match. There is, un-
doubtedly, some fire there; but how
to bring it into play is the question.
Some are born under the purple,
or strike a vein of gold ; some are
naturally endowed with brilliant
talents, or have greatness otherwise
thrust upon them; but the rule
usually observed .is, that conspicu-
ous greatness is the fruit of enthu-
siastic labor. It may accomplish
more in the short career of one
than in the three-score years and
ten of other lives.
Writes one who long has filled
a most prominent city pulpit: ' ; Let
the mountain be ashamed of spi ing
tide, with its bursting leaves and.
rivulets, before a Christian minis-
ter or teacher is ashamed of
enthusiasm !" We paraphrase the
last clause thus; "before anyone is
ashamed of enthusiasm.''

It was perhaps in the war of
1812. when Tennessee was very
sparsely settled that a call for vol-
unteers was made. A recruiting
officer had appointed a time and
place, and the old pioneers had
gathered, with their sons to offer
them if necessary to the service
of the country. Patriotic speeches
I had been made rousing the latent
j fire in the bosoms of the young
I men; the fife's shrill notes, and
j the drums muttering roll were call-
j ing men to go to the bloody field
I to dare and dte, or triumphantly
; wave the banner of liberty over a
| conquered foe.
An old veteran of the Revolu-
■ tionary war, whose head was now
! white from exposure and age,
i stood ui the midst of the assembled
crowd uttering not a word, but si-
lently the tears went trickling
down his furrowed cheek as the
sound of the martial music
brought back to his mind scenes
of another daw and remembrances
of .comrades who long since had

A young man starting out in life
is likely to dwell in reveries, pic-
turing his life as passing through
the sm >ke of battle, coming into
deadly r onflicts on bloody fields,
• daring at the mouth of booming
'artillery, all unhurt, passing rapid-
ly here and there to victory, and
leaping suddenly to a great pinna-
cle of fame; thinking not that in
order to be a hero one must be
brave; and bravery can be exhibit-
ed in many ways besides in the
battle-field. It is true that great
victories are won in battle, and
rocket-like the fame of some gen-
eral rises up, but at the same time
hundreds 'and often thousands fall.
Each one starting in life can be
a hero and win many victories, if
he only has the will, and will be
brave. When anger comes upon
him Jet him remember the charge —
bearing in mind that without a con-
flict theie is no victory, and deter-
mine that he will be guilty of no
folly because angry, bur, will con-
quer himself and be his own hero.
When the student finds his lessons
hard, if he is inclined to shrink
irom them and endeavor to get a-
way, he may properly be called a
cowardly poltroon who skulks and
hides from his duty. To such
victory is impossible, -while he who
manfully meets every obstacle and
patiently applies himself from day
to day. in each lesson gaining a
little knowledge, conquering a lit-
tle hardship, by and by he will bp
a great conqueror, and taking a
high station, the tempests of life
may come, the thunders of advers-
ity may crash, tumultuous troubles
may shake the earth, but he is
firmly fixed in his place — it is
where he belongs. So in every
station in life Wisdom says do noth-
ing but that which is right, and let
every undertaking be done with
might, and when approaching any
obstacle adopt the motto "Be brave,
my hoy. BE BRAVE."
How to be Happy.
By C. C; H.
In order that we may enjoy life,
we must properly appreciate the
present. Instead of doing this,
many live in the past or future,
and the consequence is that they
are dissatisfied. T-hey are ever
seeking for something they never
obtain. Idle reverie is as dear to
them as life. Oftentimes they en-
gage in building air-castles. King's
palaces loom up before their en-
chanted vision. On- the glowing
canvas of their future, Fairy-land
stands off m bold relief. They
imagine that they can even hear
the merry plashing of thefonntains,
and the glad notes of the warblers,
and see the fairies awaiting their
coming in order that they may
feast upon the food and drink of
the gods! But, alas! they never
arrive at that Sicilian clime; for,
like the beautiful rainbow, it seems
to recede farther and farther from
them ; the more they advance
We would hot have you think
that it is our intention to ignore
the mission of Hope, fair angel of
light, for her Avork is a noble one.
She beguiles away the poignancy
of grief and pain, and by her
magic wand causes fragrant flowers
to bloom beside life's rugged path-
way; but anticipation is the only
potion used by her for soothing
the troubled soul. There is a
SAveetness in realization that can
never be found in any draught
from her hand. How often do we
hear students exclaim, while feast-
ing on the richest delecacies that
the earth affords, "What a . de-
lightful time we had at the last
Social ! I trust that Ave shall have
a good time next holiday."
It matters not how pleasantly
some persons are circumstanced
they are ever looking backward
with wistful eyes into the silent
past, or peering down the vista of
coming years, idly dreaming of
bliss unattainable. Such can be
termed nothing else than dupes of
some wild phantasy, The poet
has aptly said;
'T:s distance lends enchantment to the view,
for look Ave backward or look we
forward, Ave see things which :
so much better than at ything we
possess, that we are rendered dis-
contented, and everything about
us puts on a common-place ap-
We do not say that a person
ought never to indulge in building
air-castles, but we do say that h* 3
should never indulge in it to ex-
cess. We should ever be mind-
ful of the fact that the shortest
road to wealth is riot the increase
of our revenue but the contraction
of our desires. Let us make the
most of the present. If we do this
Ave may rest assured tha^t our fu-
ture Avill be as bright as heaven
designed it, for only by the im-
provement and appreciation of the
present can Ave be happy.

The La"' in Language.
A writer in the Maine Journal
of Education thus argues the ne-
cessity ' of Latin as a common
Very many English words are
directly derived from Latin. To
illustrate, take almost any line
from the poets, — the thirty-second
from the vEneid, and observe our
inebtedness to its roots: "JZrra-
bant. acti fatis. niaria omnia cir-
cum." From the verb erro we ob-
tain err, errant, errata, erratic,
erroneous, and error. From ago,
we get agent, act, with its deriva-
tives, and, indirectly, actuate.
Derivatives from the third word,
such as fate, fatal, etc., suggest
themselves to one even not accus-
tomed to look for the source of
language. Several pages of the
Unabridged contain omnis and
circum, in composition. This verse
is undoubtedly a fair specimen,
but I think scholars will grant
that it is not uncommonly relevant.
Simply to know the origin of a
word is not practical, in the popu-
lar sense. But when that knowl-
enables us to spoil correctly,
ai UT3Q 'S an importance which
nil will acknowledge. Belligerent,
innuendo, omnivorous, supersede,
and such words, to the thinking-
student of Latin, cease to be
catcher. Then' component parts
at once decide their orthography,
as well as their meaning. The
first word is oftener pronounced
be'Wg-er-ant than otherwise, but
the noun helium, and the participle
irom gerOj determine immediately
its spelling. To the Latin we
owe but little of that part of ety-
mology which treats of inflection, —
and to its credit. Our syntax and
prosody, however, are based al-
most, entirely upon it. Two years'
drill in the Latin grammar is a far
"better preparation to parse Milton
than half a dozen in English.
Had not. Milton been a thorough
classical scholar, our grammarians
would not find such an expression
as "than whom'' to bother over.
Compare Lycidas with the fifth
eclogue of Virgil, and question
the need of classical learning, even
to comprehend this great writer.

"When we were in Adam's
College, the President, who was
a rigid disciplinarian, insisted that
every student should be in the
chapel on the zinging of the bell,
at six o'clock, winter and summer.
It was not eo hard to do this in the
summer, but in winter it was an
affliction to rise from a warm bed
and plod through the snow, as
they often had to do, to attend
It occurred to Jim Pradshaw,
after a jolly evening spent with
some students, that he would
freeze up the bell. "For," he ar-
gued, as he muddled over the
matter, '-if there 's no bell, there'll
be no ring, and consequently — I'll
freeze it up."
It was a bitter cold night, and
he thought that if he could only
set the bell, and fill it with water,
it would freeze as hard as marble
His room was near the belfry,
so he arose, and, without dressing
himself, seized a bucket of water
standing in his room, and started
for the stairway. To raise the
bell, so that it stood upright like a
tumbler, and tie the rope to a bal-
uster, was the work of a minute,
and then he ascended to the belfry
with his bucket of water, to com-
plete the experiment
The midnight air blew keenly
around him, he shiveringly filled
the bell, chuckled at the trick he
was playing the President. He
started to come down, but just as
he got beneath the scuttle, the
rope by some means became
loosed, the bell followed with a
clang, and the whole of the intense-
ly cold water poured down upon
Bra^saaw, who sneaked into his
room with a cooler head than he
had wijhu hi' went out."
