♦#ir N presenting Volume VII. of the Reveille 
to the public, we feel that perhaps our 
labor of love has not reached that high 
ideal towards which we have struggled. We 
have fully realized that the road to public fa- 
vor is a trying and tortuous one indeed, yet 
we hope those who read these pages will not 
find too much to condemn, but rather that they 
will find something to commend. 

We wish to extend our sincere thanks to 
the Student Body, to the Faculty, and to the 
Alumni for the earnest support which they 
have given us. We have tried as best we 
could to picture every phase of College life in 
a manner that will be most pleasing to the 
graduate's memory and which will also in- 
crease the love of the under-graduate for his 
future Alma Mater. If we have even partly 
done this, we feel that the ' I 1 Reveille will 
not be unworthy of the Senior Class and that 
our end has been accomplished.

David Carlisle Hull, M.Sc. 

1911. REVKILLE. Vol. VII. 

David Carlisle Hull, M.Sc. 

The honored subjeet of this brief biographical sketch was born in Attala 
County, Mississippi, November 4, 1869, and is a worthy descendant of refined 
Christian parents. His father was a native of Mississippi, a local preacher, and a 
successful farmer nearly a half-century ago. His mother was the daughter of the 
Rev. James Glenn Carlisle, a minister of the gospel, who came to Mississipp ifrom 
.South Carolina in the earlv pioneer davs, and remained an esteemed member of 
the North Mississippi Conference until his death in 1884. 

Mr. Hull was brought up on the farm, and during his bovhood days had the 
spirit of good work and honest toil thoroughly instilled into his nature. He ob- 
tained his early education in the regular country schools of his native county, and 
even there showed a marked aptitude for study. At the tender age of fourteen 
years, under the pastorate of Rev. W. S. Lagrone, he joined the Methodist Epis- 
copal Church, South, and has ever remained loyal and true to the teachings and 
traditions of Methodism. 

In 1890 and 1891 Mr. Hull was engaged in teaching in the country schools of 
Choctaw County. In September, 1 891, he entered the Agricultural and Mechanical 
College and was graduated in June, 1895, with the degree of Bachelor of Science, 
winning the first honors in his class and leaving a brilliant record to his credit. 
While taking his collegiate course he was deeply interested in all college activities, 
was especially active in religious work, and made his positive influence strongly 
felt in the work of the Young Men's Christian Association. 

After leaving college, Professor Hull taught for several vears in the leading 
public schools of the State, especiallv as Principal of the Meridian citv schools, 
where he made a fine record as an instructor and displaved his abilitv in adminis- 
trative and executive work. From 1902 until 1910 he was connected with the 
Faculty of the Agricultural and Mechanical College, first in the capacitv of an in- 
structor, then as Professor of Industrial Pedagogy, and finally as director of 
the School of Industrial Education, where in each position his faithfulness to 
duty and his efficienev in college work won him high distinction. In Tune, 1910, 
lie was elected President of Millsaps College, succeeding Bishop W. B. Murrah, 

President Hull has done considerable post-graduate work, having taken the 
degree of Master of Science at his Alma Mater, and pursued extensive courses of 
study in English and allied subjects, broadening his scholarship and developing the 
cultural side of his education at the University of Chicago. He is closely identified 
with the educational interests of Mississippi, being Vice-President of the State 
Teachers' Association, and has a wide acquaintance among the educators of the 
State, with whom he is verv popular and by whom he is held in high esteem. He 
has been a licensed local preacher since 1890, and is a speaker of great force and 
impressiveness in the pulpit and upon the platform. 

President Hull is a man of business affairs, with a keen appreciation of the 
value of finance and its wise expenditure. He possesses large native capacity, 
fine executive and administrative ability, a well-balanced judgment, and a high 
moral and religious character. A self-made man in every sense, he has been thor- 
oughly tested and tried and has been found wanting in no particular. And with 
him as President of Millsaps College no other educational institution in the South 
should have a brighter future.

Miss Josephine Kerr. 

Miss Josephine Kerr Starkville, Miss. 

IndusU ml Education. 

Miss Josephine joined us as a " Prep " and has been a loyal member of the Class 
at all times. In the class-room she is unusually quiet and reserved, but at home 
she is a jolly good fellow, and thoroughly understands the art of dispensing true 
Southern hospitality. It has indeed been a great pleasure to have her as a member 
of our Class, and we all wish for her the highest possible success, either as a teach- 
er or as a housekeeper.

Richard Hunnington Abbey. . . .Corinth, Miss 

First Lieutenant Band. 

"Dick" began his course here as a Freshman; 
was absent the greater part of his first year on 
account of sickness and, as a result, has had an 
up-hill fight all the way. However, his indom- 
itable courage and "never-die" spirit have ena- 
bled him to overcome all obstacles, and he ex- 
pects to graduate in June. "Dick is an en- 
thusiastic lover of live stock. His favorites are 
Angus cattle and Percheron horses. We shall 
some day be glad to remember him as our class- 
mate, for his name will surely be numbered 
among those of the great.

J. R. is not the most brilliant man in our 
Class, but he is a consistent worker, and can be 
depended on to do his part; has a kind, genial 
disposition, and will do anything to accommo- 
date a friend. He and "Cassey" are great pals, 
and can usually be found somew-here near each 
other. Girls don't seem to appeal to him, al- 
though he might easily play society if he desired.

George Harmon Armstrong Boyle, Miss. 


First Lieutenant Company B. 

We have been unable to find a worthier or 
more noble fellow than George Harmon. He 
came up from Bolivar County, and has surely 
been a valuable addition to our Class. George 
has hosts of friends and the good-will of all who 
know him ; always greets you with a smile, and 
was never known to say an unkind word to any- 
one. Sincerity and truth are exemplified in his 
daily conduct, for he practices what he preaches, 
and will some day stand with the highest in his

First Lieutenant Company M. 

This quiet and exceedingly modest young fel- 
low came up to A. and M. from Brandon, in the 
"Ozone" district. He is industrious, conscien- 
tious, and true to his principles, as well as a great 
lover of innocent fun; believes in studying — not 
grinding — and is one of the best in his school, as 
his record will show. In athletics and society 
he has never taken any great interest, but heart- 
ily endorses both in moderation. You have but 
to know Ellis to be his friend, and we shall al- 
ways keep a warm spot in our hearts for him.

Word Hooper Baker Okolona, Miss. 


Captain Company G. 

Word came to A. and M. proposing to learn 
scientific agriculture, and from his record as a 
student we must admit that he has mastered 
his course. However, his entire time has not 
been given to testing soils and classifying bugs. 
He is one of the classiest dancers in College, and 
his striking appearance and pleasing address 
have made him a social favorite. Baker never 
says a word about his triumphs, but, judging 
from the pictures which cover his room, he and 
Cupid are the best of friends. Expects to con- 
tinue his work in the agricultural world after 
securing his B.S.

The subject of this brief sketch alighted from 
the train one bright September evening in the 
fall of 1907. He quietly took his place among 
us, but in a short time his qualities of natural 
leadership and manliness placed him in the con- 
fidence of both Faculty and student body Har- 
ris has been a good student, and is very fond of 
military, especially A. and M. drill (?), but his 
greatest success has been in the social world. 
To know him is to love him, and the girls who 
have met him are numerous indeed; yet this 
handsome lad is generous to all and shows special 
favors to none.

Second Lieutenant Company H. 

Beard is earnest, good-natured, and a friend 
to everyone. He loves jokes, politics, and girls, 
and everybody calls him "Whiskers " He has 
been a diligent student, and deserves credit for 
what he has accomplished at A. and M. After 
graduation he will teach agriculture, but his am- 
bition has ever been to gain renown as a scien- 
tific planter, and we hope that he may one day 
realize the dream of his youth.

Band, and believes in "tooting" his own horn. 
He is loyal to his friends, a good football-player, 
and has saved more soles than any man in school ; 
has escaped the darts of Cupid while at A. and 
M., but we hear that he was not so lucky in > 
Booneville. A prosperous future shall surely 
be his.

Harvey began his career at A. and M. as a 
Freshman. He came to us from the wilds of 
Northern Mississippi, and his original humor 
and sterling qualities soon won for him an host 
of friends, who will always remember him as the 
best of good fellows. His record as a student 
is an enviable one, for his class-room work has 
always been far above the average. We con- 
gratulate the agricultural world upon gaining 
such a strong adherent to its cause, for success 
shall surely be his.

This man has long been known for his quiet, 
steady habits and his loyalty to his friends. 
During his College career he has given his entire 
time to the business of getting an education, 
and now he is recognized as one of the foremost 
men of the Class. His record as a student has 
been unexcelled, and he commands the respect 
and friendship of every man in College. He 
loves his work, loves his pipe, but, unfortunately, 
he does not love the girls. For their sake we 
hope that he may yet develop a need for at least 
one of them.

Clay County is responsible for the subject of 
this sketch. Early in his college days his love 
for military caused him to join the Band and 
since that time his bugle has been a source of 
constant worry to the "Preps." "Slick" takes 
life easy, and sends his troubles skyward in great 
clouds of smoke. He and his pipe have nu- 
merous friends who will always remember them 
with pleasure. Although "Slick" is one of the 
best dancers in school and very popular with 
the girls, he cares but little for social life.

"Pedagogue" is a man of varied tastes and 
abilities. He is a football enthusiast, as well as 
an expert with gasoline irons; has a quiet, easy- 
going disposition, and is well liked by his class- 
mates. He is a noted "Normalite," and thor- 
oughly understands the art of love-making and 
the use of a knapsack sprayer, having enjoyed 
much experience along both of these lines; has 
received his commission, and will enter the ser- 
vice of "Uncle Sam" in the Philippines, where 
we predict for him a bright and shining future.

"Buck" is a natural leader, and at all times 
has been one of the most popular men in the 
Class. Nothing would describe him better than 
to say that he is an ideal type of "The True 
Southern Gentleman." 

With his military bearing and his unusual ex- 
ecutive ability, he might easily gain recognition 
in the Army of "Uncle Sam," but his ambition 
turns in another direction. He longs to see the 
results of his labors outlined against the heavens 
in the form of tall steel sky-scrapers. Should 
his dreams come true, he will one day be con- 
nected with one of the largest constructing firms 
in the South, and also one of the best judges.

"Bennie" is one of our social leaders, and, al- 
though he is very studious at times, he never 
allows his work to interfere with his social duties. 
Is also a good military man, and has this year 
helped to develop one of the best "Lee Guard" 
companies ever seen at A. and M. He has been 
an unusually successful player in the game of 
"hearts," but, from all accounts, he lost his 
own in the game with " Waverly" Queen. With- 
al, he is an excellent fellow, and well liked by

"Sam" came to us in the fall of 1907. He 
never boasts of his mental ability, but he has 
been one of the leaders of his Class during his 
entire college career. His generous nature, and 
pleasant, genial manner, have won for him a 
host of friends while here in school. "Sam" 
always wears a smile and seems perfectly happy. 
This is a mystery to Harris, who can't under- 
stand how a man who has never become en- 
tangled in the web of Cupid can really enjoy 
life. "Sam" has accepted a fellowship in the 
Chemical Department, and upon completion of 
the course here will pursue his studies in Johns

Clifton, known to his intimate friends as 
"Rip," first drew breath in the little town of Pe- 
lahatchie. Some years later he heard of the 
strange and mysterious things that were common 
at A. and M., so he decided to come up and 
investigate for himself. His search in the 
Electrical Department has been very exhaust- 
ive, and to-day he is a well-equipped electrician 
and thoroughly understands his business. His 
social "stunts" have been rather spasmodic, 
but he knows'all the pretty girls by sight. Says 
he has never been in love, but blushes guiltily at 
the mention of New 7 Orleans

"Tom,'' better known as "Deutsch" or "Ty," 
has been accused of being an Irishman, but he 
defies anyone to prove the charge. One of the 
best all-around men in the Class; is at home on 
the stage, and his record as an amateur actor 
or actress (?) is hard to surpass. "Ty" has not 
only found time to engage in all College activities, 
but has also managed to finance himself through 
school. He is short only in stature, while his 
universal popularity marks him as one of the 
best in the bunch.

" Eddie " L came to us before we came ourselves. 
He would have graduated while most of us were 
"strutting" around as "Freshies" or "Sophs" 
had he not lost several years. His adversities, 
however, only gave him greater ambitions. He 
is now planning to start a cattle-ranch in Tex- 
as. No doubt he will soon have a monopoly 
of that industry and have the beef trust begging

Warren originates ideas of his own and up- 
holds them. He comes from Blue Mountain, 
the home of the B. M. C. girls, and we are con- 
strained to believe that one of these lassies is 
often associated with his dreams of an ideal 
country home. "Dan" is an agricultural en- 
thusiast and is one of our foremost practical 
men. He is going back to his farm, where he 
can devote his time to the breeding of pure-bred 
live stock.

Avery entered the Preparatory Department

•vould ever suspect that he had, once upon a 
time, been a meek and lowly "Prep.'' His de- 
velopment has been as well rounded as that of 
any member of the Class, for he has become a 
man mentally, morally, and physically. As an 
athlete, he has made for himself a name, both 
in football and baseball, and we deem him thor- 
oughly capable of winning the long, hard battle 
of life.

"Frank" is a man of original ideas and is al-

worker and an efficient, practical man. His 
chief characteristic is his "Frank-ness" ; he is 
sincere in what he does, and can be depended on 
to do what he thinks is right. He is managing 
his own financial affairs, and will complete the 
regular course here in three years — a thing that 
many are unablejto do in four.

"Lieutenant William Roderick Leflore Hor-

came to us from the County of Tippah. He is a 
great admirer of the ladies, and long ago decided 
that anything beats living alone. He might 
have been a society man of the first degree, but 
in the beginning he vowed never to allow the 
girls to interfere in his search for knowledge. 
Roderick is one of the wittiest as well as one of 
the most popular men in the Class. His favor- 
ite pastime is playing jokes and " killing" hours. 
He once thought of specializing in "Bugology" 
or "Maths," but finally settled upon agriculture 
as the greatest of all the sciences. We feel sure 
that some day his work in this field will make 
him famous.

"Polly" is one of the men in our Class who 
has a record. Five years ago he came to A. and 
M. and since that time his athletic career has 
kept his name almost constantly before the pub- 
lic. For three years he was one of the strongest 
supports on our 'Varsity Football Team, and no 
doubt he would have made the All-Southern 
Team but for the four-year rule, which kept him 
nut (if the game this year. "Polly" is a big, 
free-hearted fellow who believes in enjoying life. 
During his serious moments he has mastered the 
textile business, and some day he expects to be 
a financier in this line.

Clayton's personality was enveloped in a veil 
of obscurity when he first joined our Class. As a 
peanut-vender he made his debut in College life; 
at the finish he holds the highest gift that this 
College can bestow upon any student — namely, 
tile privilege of representing" A. and M. in the an- 
nual M. I. 0. A. meet, and with this he holds a 
Mill more precious gift: the trust and admira- 
tion of the entire student body. The cause of 
this wonderful evolution can be seen in a glance 
at the list of attainments below. An earnest 
heart, strong will-power, and a keen and whole- 
some ambition have opened up his path to suc- 
cess in the past and will no doubt mold a brilliant 
career fur him

Leo is a staunch believer in the right and in

and ever strives to live in accordance with these. 
His individuality is marked and to some he 
seems peculiar, but these peculiarities have made 
for him a friend of every man in his Class. So- 
ciety has never attracted Leo during his College 
days, as his spare time has been given to some- 
thing that to him was infinitely more important 
and — that is, Athletics. However, he is a firm 
believer in "Somewhere she waits to greet you, 
to take your soul in her firm white hands," 
and lucky will be that girl who some day will 
call our future railroad president her own.

He has ever been a leader in his classes and in 
all College activities that are really worth while. 
He is a clear thinker and a forceful speaker, 
and the man who can change his opinion on any 
subject simply has to know more about it than 
does Sid. Morally, he stands for the things that 
are clean and square, and his belief is exemplified

conceit has never been one of his faults. John

1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

Senior Class History. 

"Veni! Vidi! Vici!" exclaimed Caesar at the end of his brilliant campaign 
in the land of the Gauls. 

"Venimus! Vidimus! Vicimus! 1 ' repeat we of the Class of 191 1 as we stand 
now at the close of a hard but gloriously fought battle in the land of the A. and M. 
students and look back on the stormy days gone by with a heart swelled with 
pride and emotion. 

Venimus, vidimus, vicimus — we have come, we have seen, we have conquered. 
Let us record the events of this phenomenal victorv, in order that they may live 
in our own minds and become inscribed on the walls of the memories of the gen- 
eration to come, so that they may glorify our deeds and exalt our valor. 

Venimus, early in the month of September, Anno Domini 1907, the vanguard 
of our horde appeared on the campus of the A. and M. College, heralding the 
news that a new race of lusty warriors were coming. They were soon joined by 
the bulk of our forces, forming a band three hundred strong. 

After the scholastic campaign had fairly begun, we called our men together 
and elected our leaders. We also, after careful and thorough deliberation, pro- 
mulgated those principles which were not only to guide us through the four years 
of our encampment at the College, but which were also to constitute the funda- 
mental ideals on which the labor, hopes, and a pirations of every one of us indi- 
vidually should rest to the end of our lives. Paramount among these maxims 
stood Unity and Originality. Unity, because in the destinies of the classes pre- 
ceding our own we saw the exemplification of the truth that "divided we fall," 
and we strove in our own career to crystallize the truth that "united we stand." 
Originality, because we loathed to follow the old beaten path of our predecessors, 
seeing in it the stupefaction and the dwarfing of man's real character, while the 
true building of manhood lies in an earnest aspiration after something greater, 
something nobler, and something loftier. 

Our Freshman year was then a year of prepara ion, a year of search into new 
conditions, a year of adjustment, a year of taking the proper bearings, a year of 
setting up our standards. 

In the fall of 1908 our band met together for the second time. We were now 
Sophomores. Our numbers were fewer. Some of our old comrades could not en- 
dure the strain of battle and fell out; and, though our ranks were swelled with 
throngs of new-comers drawn to our band by the fame of its past achievements, 
we did not regain our original strength of numbers. But our loss in men was 
generously repaid by the gain in spirit. With increased zeal, we clung to our ban- 
ner and marched in one solid front. Difficult problems were facing us, but we met 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

them bravely and mastered the situation thoroughly. We never allowed any 
phase of College activities to pass us. We contributed generously to the Y. M. 
C. A., to the literary societies, and to Athletics. Yet we could not content our- 
selves with merely duplicating the work of our predecessors; we craved to produce 
something that had never been attempted here before. As a result, the Dramatic 
Club sprang into existence. The creation of this Club was a feat of such magni- 
tude that it alone would have been sufficient to perpetuate the existence of our 
Class in the hearts of the classes to come. 

We approach our Juniordom. This year has almost seen the high-water 
mark of our fame. Three achievements tower most pre-eminently. 

First, the Dramatic Club was advanced from the realms of plans and dreams 
into that of breathing reality. It was now a living fact. It proyed a decided suc- 
cess in every way and at once became one of the foremost assets of our not too 
variegated College life. The high reputation of the Club wis not at all confined 
to the limits of the College. The members of the Club have shown their craft in 
the cities of Starkville, Columbus, and even Jackson, carrying genuine pleasure 
wherever they went and winning the laurels of fame for themselves and for the 
Class of which they were a part. 

The second epoch-making event was the capturing of the championship of 
class football. The victory was wrested from the hands of the Seniors on a snow- 
covered field. The scene was highly spectacular and most inspiring indeed. 

The third event, however, is the must prominent, for it is highly unique in its 
nature. Who would ever have thought that such an innocent diversion as a ban- 
quet could be transformed into an act of historic moment? Yet, we did it. In the 
spring of igio the Starkville Four Hundred were fairly dumbfounded with the 
bold decision of our Class to convert the great annual occasion known as the 
"Junior Banquet" into (O shades of Cincinnatus!) a stag banquet. Such a vio- 
lation of custom and tradition did not exist in the memories of even the most 
ancient maids of the Starkville society. They raised a cry of battle. The call to 
arms was sounded. They filed out in one solid array, clad in steel and iron. We 
trembled at the sight of them. They chilled our blood with their fearful sighs 
and almost turned our heads wi h their tearful smiles. But we clung together in 
the very face of the foe. We raised higher our banner on which there burned our 
motto, "Unity, Originality," and we stood the ground. On the night of April i f 
1 910, every member of the Class met at the banquet, where, under the floating 
strains of charming music, we gave vent to our emotions; where, in company of 
comrades grown dear to each other by long association, we recited the deeds of 
the years gone by, and with timid but hopeful eyes gazed into the unknown but 
inviting future. For four hours we remained together, living in each other and 
inspired by one common ideal. 

Thrilled with the sentiment of brotherhood inspired by the banquet, we as- 
sembled for the last time in the fall of 19 10 as Seniors. We shouldered bravely 
the responsibilities connected with our new duties and held up the military stand- 




Vol. VII. 

ard of this school to a height unprecedented. Again, we have given our hearty 
support to every line of College activity; again, we have shown ourselves w r orthy 
on the athletic field; but it was on a nobler field that our fame asserted itself. 

For many a year there rested a tremendous burden on the shoulders of our 
students. The question of dishonesty in the form of cheating on examination 
stared into the faces of the whole student bod)', but it affected most acutely the 
Senior Class, which, as a rule, sets the standard of the life in College. We felt in- 
stinctively that if we left this problem unsolved our career here would have been a 
partial failure. Accordingly, we set about devising plans for the introduction of 
the Honor System in this College. We have mastered the problem, and we can 
now lift up our heads and tell the other colleges of the world, "We are your equal." 

Such is our past and present. The future is hidden under the veil of uncer- 
tainty. Should we fear to face the unknown? No. With a record as brilliant 
as ours has been in the past, we can meet the vicissitudes of life with a clearer con- 
sciousness and with a spirit of trust.

A Toast to the Class '11. 

Here 's to the Class of Nineteen Eleven, 
The glorious Class formed in nineteen and seven, 
Whose members are faithful and loyal and true, 
Who stand for the right, and who dare and do. 

Here 's to the Class so gallant and gay, 
No braver nor handsomer e'er wore the gray; 
Who, leaving I heir homes, to A. and M. came, 
Determined to work and win themselves fame. 

Here 's to the Class who stood by their mates 
When clouds hovered thick, when frowned on by Fate ; 
"In union there 's strength," quoth one and quoth all; 
"United we stand, divided we fall." 

Here 's to the Class who conquers alway, 
As the Seniors found in the snow that day 
When the Juniors fought with courage and might, 
Coming out victorious from the fray and the fight. . 

Here 's to the Class who for four years told 

Have been true to their colors, the Maroon and the Gold ; 

And now as the goal they almost see. 

Sweet sounds their motto, "Winners We." 

Here 's to the Class in future whose name 
Will be found inscribed in the halls of Fame, 
The Class endowed with choice gifts from Heaven, 
The dear Class, the best Class, the Class of 'Eleven.

We beliexe that we were born in Mississippi, deceived in coming to A. and M., 
suffered under William Howard Magruder, were tried, convicted, and part of us 
shipped; were distributed over Mississippi, were reinstated in September, ascended 
into the Senior Class, and obeyed Dr. Mac/ruder, the omnipotent one; from thence we 
shall graduate in June, 1911. 

We believe in the serving of confinements, the walking of extras, the punishment 
of Seniors, the non-granting of permits for wearing "cits," the denial of privileges, and 
life everlasting in the Barracks. 

Amen and- Amen.

Junior Class History. 

As it is customary for men when writing their autobiographies to picture their 
lives just a little brighter, so with class historians there is a tendency to picture 
the actions and achievements of their respective classes in glowing terms. My 
aim, however, is to deviate from the general rule, to trv not to allow mv love for 
my Class to overcome my intentions, and to present a true history of Class '12. 

Taking everything into consideration, this year has been the most successful 
of our College career. We were not more fortunate than other classes as regards 
losing some of our old men, but the number that has matriculated in the Class this 
year is as large as usual. Several of our old members have dropped from the list, 
but not our memory, and new men from other institutions have taken their places. 

Our work for the present session shows that we have not been negligent in the 
affairs that appertain to College life; and, while nothing wonderful has been ac- 
complished, this v ar ha not been uneventful Our academic work has been en- 
tered into with a determinatio which bodes success to each o us. We have 
heartilv supported the Y. M. C. A., assisted greatly in making the Dramatic Club 
a wonderful success, and have given the Athletic Association our unstinted 

Athletics might be called our "hobbv." Furnishing seven men for the 'Vars- 
ity Eleven, a good share of the "Scrubs," the captains and several members to 
the Track Team, to the Baseball Team, to the Basketball Team, and members to 
the Tennis Team, did not keep us from winning the championship in class football. 
In a series of probably the hardest fought class football games ever played on our 
field we came out victorious, defeating the strong Senior team by a small margin. 

While realizing the responsibilities which Seniors are called upon to shoulder, 
we firmly believe that when the first, notes of '■'■ Reveille " are sounded next autumn 
we will be able to bear the burden and do our'part in carrying old A. and M. through 
one of the most profitable years of her life.

Sophomore Class History. 

Such events as our State or nation would look upon in years to come with 
pride and admiration history demands should be recorded. It is therefore with 
a sense of duty, but at the same time with pleasure, that we note a few of the most 
important accomplishments of our Class. 

In the fall of iqoq a vast horde of new men from all parts of Mississippi and 
other States assembled at the A. and M. College to begin College life and become 
giants of learning. At the close of the first year's work they had made a record 
well deserving praise; but since this has been recorded in detail in the preceding 
volumes, we will consider only the work of the Sophomore year. 

When we assembled as "wise Sophs" at the beginning of this session, we were 
distressed to find that many of our Freshman heroes were missing; but, to our re- 
lief, brilliant new men came in and filled their places. Greatly in contrast to our 
awkward Freshman appearance last vear, we were experienced College men, versed 
in every phase of College life; and on account of our military knowledge the Com- 
mandant made many of our men Corporals. Our academic knowledge has also been 
great, for the entire Class — of course, with a few exceptions — has done excellent 
work; in fact, so many of the members are geniuses that several professors have 
predicted that manv will graduate in the end with unusual distinction and credit. 

In Athletics the Class has stood admirably well, contributing liberally to all 
the 'Varsity teams. The Sophomore Football Team was one of the strongest on 
the field and its record is a credit to the Class. In baseball and the other class 
athletics our teams have stood at the top and manv 'Varsity men are expected 
from them. 

The Sophomore Class possesses several distinguishing characteristics; the 
.Class is proud of these possessions, but regrets that they have caused so much 
jealousy among the Juniors. The first fact is, that we belong to Class '13 (Lucky 
Thirteen), a distinction of which comparatively few College men will ever be able 
to boast. Men graduating in this luckv year will certainly succeed in life. Then 
the Class spirit shown by the Sophomores is above comparison with that of any 
other class. But our most prized possession is three sweet little Co-eds. Neither 
the Seniors nor the Juniors will deny that they have not coveted this fair possession. 

The Class, as a whole, has been distinguished by the manly conduct of its men. 
They stand for the right. Surely the battles of their approaching Junior and 
Senior campaigns, though hard fought, will be valiantly won.

Freshman Class History. 

As it would take volumes to relate all concerning the Class of 1914, it is deimed 
wise to mention a few facts which are self-ev dent. In the first place, it is reallv a 
pleasure to write about such a bright-looking bunch of fellows now standing at the 
beginning of the rough and stony pathway leading to the great "hall of Fame," 
all eager to have their names inscribed upon its walls. The Class of 1914 in many 
respects has not been excelled by any class of the College and in some respects it is 
far superior to many. This is shown by its representatives on the different teams, 
in the different clubs and societies, by its diligent students, hard working, earnest 
men, and by other things needless to mention. 

In the month of September, in the year of 1910, the Class of 1914 made its 
first appearance in the College circles. The old men were glad to meet us and were 
willing to help us as mu h as possible, but a few of us were embarrassed when asked 
how many bath-tickets we wanted to buv. From everv train that came in the 
next few days groups of students came up to the College and were greeted by the 
ones who had previously arrived. Our number steadily grew until we reached the 
record of being the largest Freshman Class in the history of the College. 

We have men who have made themselves famous in nearlv ever phase of Col- 
lege life. George Read thinks he will go to West Point next year. His classmates 
think this a good plan, as he is always heard praising the militarv here. His firm 
conviction is, " No military, no pleasure." Beidenharn is still crying for the "bot- 
tle" and has to be rocked to sleep every night. Olson tries to impress upon our 
minds that he can sing and is frequently heard screaming at the top of his voice, 
"Gee! I wish I had a girl!" Hamrick and Holmes, a dashing couple of handsome 
youths, are among the leaders of Starkville societv. 

We could go on forever enumerating noble things about the Class of 1 914, -but 
since space is limited, we will have to end this historv. There are volumes which 
remain untold about the Class whose triumphs and successes will be renewed with 
great lustre in the time to come. Look out for the Class of 1914, which has only 
been introduced in this brief sketch. Thev will some dav make their mark in 
this world.

1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

The Unforeseen as It Occurred. 

My father, who is a civil and mining engineer, having chosen that profession 
as his life-work since his graduation from the Universitv of Virginia, had long 
wished me to follow his work and adopt it as mine. It was his desire that I prepare 
myself to do competent work in order that we might work together and go to either 
the Western States or Mexico, or where this work was more remunerative. 

I finally decided to comply with his requests, and immediately left home to 
start upon a new career, one which was entirelv new to me, but not wholly dis- 

I had been away for about two years when one dav I received a letter from 
father asking me to come home at once, as he had been offered a position in New 
Orleans, and he wished very much for me to go with him. How glad I was when I 
read his letter! Just to think, I was going to New Orleans, the city of which I read 
and heard so much ! I had often heard of the famous Creole city and had long 
wished for the opportunity of seeing it for myself and thereby get some of the 
practical knowledge of the great cosmopolitan city of the South by living in it. 

It was on the 19th of Februarv, three vears ago, when we left behind us the 
dear old snow-capped mountains, wrapped in what Thoreau terms "their eternal 
grandeur." It was certa nlv with deep regret that I bade them farewell; I knew 
not when I should see them again. 

I will not dwell on the several minor incidents that befell us on our journey 
to the "land of flowers," but I must say that my feelings were indeed strange 
when I saw winter with its snow and chilly blasts gradually fade away and its 
place be taken by spring with its flowers and pure, balmy air. 

These emotions were not long to remain with me, for on the evening of the 
second dav we came within sight of the city. Soon after arriving we sought a 
boarding-place, which we soon found on Royal Street about three blocks south of 
Canal. Anyone familiar with the streets of New Orleans knows that this street 
is in that portion of the city known as the "Old French Quarter," or the "Latin 
Quarter," as it is now sometimes called. My father selected this place because of 
its quietness and obscuritv and also because it was very near the City Hall, in which 
he was to have an office as Assistant City Engineer. 

It happened that our landlady was an old French woman by the name of Mme. 
Cecile Benedict, a tall, stately woman, having a rather emaciated appearance, 
which must have been caused from either sickness or hard work. She was, how- 
ever, a very pleasant woman in spite of whnt would seem to the casual observer 
^otherwise, and verv communicative, as most old French women are. 

I assisted father in his office when he had any extra work to do, and whenever 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

he went out of town (which he frequently did), I took his place in the office. It 
was very seldom, though, that I would have to spend the entire day at work; and 
when I was not at work, which was generally in the afternoon, I spent the time 
very prolitablv talking with the old French lady. Our little chats would nearly 
always take place in the back kitchen, where I would go when I felt impelled to 
seek society. Lighting her cigarette and taking a sip of black coffee, she would 
generally begin the conversation in this manner: 

"Monsieur Pierre, there seems to be nothing but trouble for everyone of us 
in this life; yes, a life of sorrows, a vale of tears, mountains of doubt and difficulties 
to be overcome; but, eh bien, we have to make the most of it." 

"But, madame, if we have to make the most of life, as you say, it seems to me 
as if we could lessen these sorrows by making the most of them," I would answer, 
trying hard to philosophize. 

"Yes, monsieur; but there is Fate with which to reckon. Can we lessen that 
which Fate has imposed upon us?" 

Then she would go back to the time when she was a girl, bright, happy, and 
innocent, thinking little of the cares and responsibilities of life, roaming wildly 
over the plains and rambling through the vineyards of southern France. 

"Out, monsieur, I was a girl then." And then she would tell me of many of her 
youthful cosurs-de-amour and of the main- garfom with whom she had flirted and 
made love. 

From the few conversations that we had, I became convinced that this poor, 
lonely woman's life was enshrouded in mystery; that she had a "life historv," 
something of which few individuals can boast of having possessed. It seemed to 
me as if I could almost read it from the sad, dark eves — ah, how mournfully thev 
looked on me! This mere atom of poor, trampled humanity, what had been her 
life? I wondered. 

I became possessed of an almost insatiable desire to know what had been her 
li.e; I wondered if she would tell. How could I approach her? "How can I invade 
the sanctity of her thought, that I mav know as she has known?" was my almost 
constant thought. 

As time wore on and as my work increased, I graduallv forgot my past 
curiosity and had become absorbed in the work which I was doing. This was 
in the spring, for at the beginning of that season the torrents of rain had almost 
obliterated some of the principal thoroughfares, which necessitated my father's 
being out a great deal and rarelv ever being in his office through the dav. 

During the summer, after having "caught up" with my work, I became idle 
a great deal again, ami, oi course, I resumed my old-time daily talks with the 
landlady. My curiosity came on again, but I found it very perplexing to know 
in what manner to find out about this old woman's life. 

My doubts and fears were soon to be put to an end, for one dav my father 
came in and announced that we were soon to go to Pittsbur°. I now became more 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

determined than ever to get her to tell me the story of her past, and one day in the 
midst of our evening's conversation I rather abruptly asked her to tell me the storv 
of her life. At first she positively refused to do so, and rather gentlv intimated 
that it was none of my business. I refrained from speaking further, but, after a 
brief period of silence on both our parts, she said in a low, soft voice, "Monsieur, 
if you will patiently listen, I will endeavor to tell you my story, that there s Fate 
with which to reckon in our lives. 

" I was born in a little town on the .Mediterranean coast in the southern part 
of France, as I believe I have told vou before. It was there that I spent my girl- 
hood davs, growing up without a care, and full of childish simplicity. How I used 
to play on the beach, watching the tides and waves as they came rolling in, then 
plaving in the sand and gathering the beautiful shells! It was in this wav that I 
spent the greater part of my life until I was sixteen years old. 

"It was about this time that I attended a soiree given by one of my cousins, 
not very far from my own home. That evening I met a voung, handsome Spanish 
sailor, who had just left his ship at Marseilles on leave of absence and was visiting 
an old uncle. 

"I danced several sets with him, and I must confess that before we separated 
that night I had fallen deeply in love with him. 1 know that my affection was re- 
turned, for the next day he came to my heme on some slight pretext of an errand 
for his uncle, but which, he afterwards told me, was purposelv to see me. We 
were together almost constantly after this, and when the time came or him to 
leave for his ship, it seemed as if I could hardly bear it. 

"We bade each other farewell. He asked me to send his letters to Algiers, for 
he would be there for several months. I wrote him several letters; he answered 
promptly each time, but one dav (the dav on which I was due a letter from him) 
I was disappointed by not hearing from him. Days passed, I wrote again; weeks 
passed, and still I did not hear from him. I wrote to the Minister of Naval Affairs, 
but he could give me no information concerning him. 

"Five vears passed, and my parents decided to come to America. We landed 
here in New ( )rleans in a few weeks after having set sail, full of the hopes and am- 
bitions which I suppose all immigrants have; but there still remained with me 
the deep, burning, heart-piercing thoughts of my sailor lover, Pedro Martinez. . 

" It was my parents' desire that I marry a voung man, a saloonist and hotel- 
keeper, who was a great favorite of theirs, but for whom I had the deepest hatred. 
How shallow and fickle he was! He was making monev though. Father thought 
that my marriage with him would be a most brilliant match. 

" In the course of a few months I married him, but it was not for long that I 
was to live with him, for three months after our marriage he became involved n a 
gambling brawl and was killed. It is with some shame, but still it is true, when 
I sav that I felt verv unconcerned over the matter; but worse than this was in 
store for me, for I now had to seek means to make my own living. After trving 

1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

several things, I decided to try to keep a boarding-house, which I have done since 
his death and have succeeded in making a living from it. 

"It was several years ago when both my parents died of yellow fever, and then 
I was left alone in this great and wide countrv without a relative or anyone whom 
I knew in days gone by. 

"So now you have my story, monsieur. Could I have lessened these sorrows? 
Often do I think of him — how vain the thought! I sometimes think that I shall 
see him again before I die. May the Blessed Virgin in all of her goodness and mercv 
abide with him and bring him back to me, his waiting one." 

It was a few days after our conversation that mv father and myself left for 
Pittsburg, but we had not been there long when the companvfor whom we worked 
bought an immense tract of land in Mexico. I was sent there to make a survev of 
it, which lay in a rough, wild, and mountainous countrv, inhabited only by a savage 
tribe of Indians, known as the Yaqui. 

As far as I knew, there was only one white man besides myself for miles around 
— a missionary priest, who had chosen this country as his Master's vinevard. I 
found this priest, who was a Spaniard, very hard to become acquainted with, as he 
had the natural distrust of all Mexicans toward Americans; but this spirit gradu- 
ally wore off and he became more unreserved — in fact, as time passed he became 
almost as a father to me. 

The tribe of Indians among whom we lived were at constant warfare with a 
tribe farther north, known as the Zacoras, and were now beginning to plan a 
great campaign against their enemies in spite of the efforts of Father Pedro, who 
had great influence with them, to preserve peace; but when he saw that war was 
inevitable, he decided to accompany the Indians, at the same time requesting me 
to come with him if I liked. 

After a march of several days, our tribe came upon the Zacoras in a narrow 
valley between two high ranges of mountains. The battle commenced about noon 
the next day and waged fiercely all that afternoon. Imagine my horror and dismay 
when, just as the sun was sinking behind the blue hills bathed in all the glory of 
departing day, Father Pedro sank to the ground, his breast pierced with a poisoned 
arrow. He called me in a feeble voice to his side and begged me to loosen his blouse. 
He drew forth a small picture and handed it to me. In the dim twilight that 
seemed so fitfully to compare with his ebbing life, I recognized it at once to be, that 
of Madame Benedict as she might have been at sixteen. "This," he said, as he lay 
dying, "is a picture of my sweetheart, the sweetheart of my youth, Cecile Lagrange. 
My son, will you seek her — give her this — tell her — the ship was wrecked. Adios."

Thoughts of You. 

The soft south wind has sought in vain, 
In vain for summer's flow'rs; 

Southward he has turned in pain, 
Pursued by autumn's show'rs. 

The rain has stained the verdant leaves; 

In joy they spin around, 
Till friezed they curl upon the trees 

Or whirl along the ground. 

No babbling note from bursting throat 

Inspires my tiresome path; 
Birds sing their lays in lands remote, 

Alone I 'm left in aftermath. 

In aftermath bleak Nature sleeps, 

All dyed in darksome hue, 
And all that spurs my steps to steeps 

Are thoughts, sweet thoughts of you.

Minguillo's Kiss. 

Because of kissing thee, Minguillo, 

Mother 's ever scolding me ; 
Give me quicklv back, thou dear one, 

Give the kiss I gave to thee. 
Give me back the kiss — that one, now; 

Let my mother scold no more; 

Let us tell her all is o'er. 
What was done is all undone now. 
Yes, it must be wise, Minguillo, 

My fond kiss to give to me ; 
Give me swiftly back, thou dear one, 

Give the kiss I gave to thee. 
Give me back the kiss, for mother 

Is impatient — I pray thee, do ! 

For that one thou shalt have two; 
Give me that and take another, 
Yes, then will they be contented, 

Then can't thev complain of me; 
Give me quickly back, thou dear one, 

Give the kiss I gave to thee. 

Translated from the Spanish by InsurrEcto, 

The Light. 

My bleeding heart repeats in part 

The message that I send, 
And fleeting dart with speedy start 

From Cupid's bow does end. 
My bleeding heart with thine 's entwined, 

Enshrined with promise true, 
These lines seek for a Valentine ; 

My soul cries out for you. 

My restless soul seeks for a goal, 

A goal of rest 's in sight ; 
As on a troubled sea I roll, 

My ship 's without a light. 
Combine vour shining soul with mine, 

That I raav see the wav; 
If you will be mv Valentine, 

We '11 sail the sea to-dav.

Ode to "Bull Neck." 

Old steed, old steed, how came you here? 1 

You 've ploughed the fields for many a year; 

You 've "snaked" the logs and pulled the loads 

Through trackless woods, o'er muddy roads; 

When in a tight the driver spoke. 

You threw your weight against the yoke; 

But since you 've yielded up the ghost, 

They 've brought you here for steak and roast. 

You need not jump as if A'ou 're stung 

And trying to break the wagon-tongue; 

The noise you hear is not the crack 

Of cowhide whip upon your back, 

But mv jawbone did smartly break 

When I chewed down on your tough steak.

In (he dusky alcove, 

Near the altar laid, 
Sleeps the child in shadow 

Of his mother's bed; 
Softly he reposes, 
And his lids of roses, 
Closed to earth, uncloses 

On the Heaven overhead. 

Many a dream is with him, 
Fresh from fairyland ; 

Spangled o'er with diamonds 
Seems the ocean sand ; 

Suns are gleaming there; 

Troops of ladies fair 

Souls of infants bear 

In their charming hand. 

Oh, enchanting vision ! 

Lo ! a rill upsprings 
And from out its bosom 

Comes a voice that sings; 
Lovelier there appear 
vSire and sisters dear, 
While his mother near 

Plumes her new-born wings. 

But a brighter vision 

Yet his eyes behold : 
RoSes all and lilies 

Every path unfold , 
Lakes in shadow sleeping, 
Silver fishes leaping, 
And the waters creeping 

Through the reeds of gold.

.Slumber on, sweet infant, 

Slumber peacefully; 
Thy young spirit knows not 

What thv lot may be; 
Like dead leaves that sweep 
Down the stormy deep, 
Thou art borne in sleep; 

What is all to thee? 

Innocent, thou sleepest ! 

See, the heavenly band, 
Who foreknow the trials 

That for man are planned, 
Seeing him unarmed, 
Unfearing, unalarmed, 
With their tears have warmed 

His unconscious hand. 

Angels, hovering o'er him, 

Kiss him where he lies. 
Hark! he sees them weeping! 
"Gabriel!" he cries. 

"Hush!" the angel says; 
On his lip he lays 
One finger, and displays 

His native skies.

Special Military Companies. 

When the Legislature organized the Mississippi Agricultural and Mechanical 
College, it saw fit to debar all Greek-letter fraternities from either seeking members 
from the student body or to maintain chapter-houses on the Campus. The wisdom 
of this action has been proved by the steady growth of A. and M., while institutions 
where these fraternities flourish have been at a stand-still. Our student body has 
not been slow to recognize the benefit to be derived from a fraternity in promoting 
brotherly feeling among the boys, initiating members into society, and numerous 
social advantages that come to members of such organizations, and have created 
special militarv companies that embody all the good qualities of the Greek-letter 
fraternities without their faults. Our school has been singularly free from antag- 
onism between members and non-members of these organizations. 

The purpose of all these' companies is to make their members especially pro- 
ficient in the handling of the rifle or saber and to vary the monotony of College life 
by dances, banquets, and like social functions. 

The Saber Companv is composed of members of the Senior Class only. The 
drill is with sabers, and the members are selected because of their mental, moral, 
physical, and social qualifications. In addition, they must handle the saber with 
ease and grace. 

The Lee Guard and George Rifles are composed of members of any class who 
mav have been in school one term, the other requirements being very similar to 
those of the Saber Company. The annual "hops" given by these two organiza- 
tions are probably the most enjoyable events in a College man's course. We be- 
lieve that, in order for the proper spirit toward the military feature of our College 
to be made manifest, these companies are indispensable. They should command 
the respect of both students and Faculty.

A Sick Baby. 

"Hello, there! Is this 6— 5— 3? It is? Is Dr. Pillbag there? You are Dr. 
Pillbag? Why, I didn't recognize your voice at all. .Somehow it sounded so 
strange over the wire; but then, I think that often happens. I was talking to my 
my own sister yesterdav afternoon and I wouldn't have known it was she if I 
hadn't really known. 

"Well, Doctor, I just rang you up to speak to vou about the baby. I don't 
think he is real well and yet I don't think he is hardly ill enough for you to take 
the trouble to come way out here, although, of course, I would have you ccme if I 
thought it really necessary. I don't believe in home doctoring. One of my 
cousins has a home doctor-book and a little medicine chest and a 'first aid to the 
injured ' box, and all that, and she treats her children herself, but I think its dread- 
fully risky, don't you 5 I think that if one is sick enough to take medicine, it is al- 
ways best to take it under the direction of a doctor, and I wouldn 't undertake to 
give any of my family treatment, for — You there, Doctor? 

" About the baby: As I say, he isn't really ill, but he isn't quite himself, and 
I thought it might be better for me to just speak to you about it, for it would be 
easy to do so by 'phone, and — I was thinking this morning what a help a 'phone 
must be to a doctor! What a lot of time it must save him! and, of course, it saves 
his patients time. I was in the country a short time ago, visiting a cousin of 
mine — or, to be more exact, a cousin of my husband's, but I call her 'cousin' just 
the same, and I really think more of her than of seme of my own cousins. Well, 
she lives in Starkville, her name is Johnson, and I think vou met her last spring 
when my husband was so ill and you were here every dav for a week — a tall, rather 
spare lady, with such lovely eyes. I think I recall introducing you to her. Any- 
how, I was visiting her, and she lives five miles from the nearest town, and her 
husband was taken very ill — Oh! very ill — in the dead of the night, and, as it hap- 
pened, their hired man was away for the night, and the nearest neighbor lived 
more than a half a mile away, and just two women alone in the house with this 
very sick man, and no one to go for the doctor; but there was the telephone. It 
made me appreciate as I never had before how useful the 'phone can be, and yet I 
suppose it does get to be a nuisance sometimes when people ring you up and talk 
and talk over the 'phone. 

"About the baby: As I say, he doesn't seem to be quite himself. My hus- 
band spoke of it this morning, and thought the dear little fellow looked a trifle pale 
and asked if he was 'off his feed.' I don't approve of slang and yet it is often very 
expressive, don't you think 5 Then I remembered that baby hadn't taken quite all 
of his last two bottles, and he seemed a little listless, and — What is that, Doctor? 
Has he a temperature? I suppose so; I suppose a baby always has a temperature

of some kind, hasn't it 1 I have tried to count his pulse, but you know it — What 
is that? Has he any fever? I don't know that he has, unless it 's some internal 
fever that I wouldn't discover, and he — Is his tongue coated ? Not that I know of. 
As I say, he isn't really ill, and I simply rang you up to ask if it might not be best 
for you to give him something to keep him from getting ill. You might send it 
by mail or I could call around and get it, although, as I say, he may not need 

"I don't want it to run on if there is anything the matter, although there 
can't be anything serious the trouble or the symptoms would be more marked. 
I don't believe in — You think there is nothing the matter with baby? I am so 
glad vou think so. As I say, I felt sure that he was not really ill, but then — Shall 
I let you know if he shows signs of being really ill? I never let an illness of any 
kind run on, for I feel that — You there, Doctor? Hello! Hello there! Doctor, 
you there? I guess they have cut me off, or else he has hung up his receiver; that 
is one disadvantage of the telephone — they are apt to cut you off just when you 
want to say something important. I will ring the Doctor up again soon, for 
there is reallv something I want to say to him about baby."

Athletic Captains. 

1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 


The year just passed has been one of A. and M.'s best from an athletic view. 
Victory has not always perched upon her banners, but her standing, due mostly 
to the untiring efforts of Coach Chadwick, is much higher among Southern colleges 
than ever before. 

The football season especially draws our attention to the fact that our team 
for the first time defeated one championship aspirant, almost tied another, and but 
for the unavoidable happenings of the last three weeks of the season would have 
made a good fight for second or third place in the S. I. A. A. Coach Chadwick, as 
well as the members of the team and others, feel that the standing is much higher 
than that of any previous team. We are glad to give our State rival, the Univers- 
itv of Mississippi, the honor that is due them, and recognize the great team they 
put out this season. Had some of the teams whom they met earlier in the season 
met them on the same date that chronicled A. and M.'s defeat and in the same con- 
dition, there is no doubt that there would have been some different standings in 
the S. I. A. A. Great confidence has been placed in Captain Hadley for next year, 
and it is still hoped that he will be in condition to play and lead the great team that 
prospects are pointing to. 

Although the baseball season of 1910 ended in disaster for A. and M., the 
season was replete with spectacular playing, and in the fielding department the 
team was not surpassed in any game. The defeat of the season was due to the 
scarcity of pitchers. The only real pitcher was a star when his turn came round, 
but he couldn't pitch every game, nor even half. The home games were more 
numerous and with better class teams than heretofore, and as a result the attend- 
ance and interest were better. The material worked up last season was entirely 
new, with the exception of an infielder and a catcher, so the showing that was 
made can be appreciated. The new grand stand and bleachers add greatly to the 
comfort of the spectators and the appearance of the field. This is another result 
of Coach Chadwick's energy. The coming season holds in store the further de- 
velopment of almost the same team, with the hopes of a strengthened pitching 
staff. The schedule is even better than that of the season of 1910. 

After a year without basketball, A. and M., with a bad court for a drawback, 
made a new start and called out candidates for the A-^arsity. The candidates 
were not so numerous as might be expected from such a large student body, but 
some good material began work and under Coach Chadwick laid a good foundation 
for the building up of a strong team. The schedule was not a long one, but several 
hard games were played, and an increased interest was shown among the students. 
Most of the games were lost; but basketball is back to stay and will grow each vear. 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

The most successful team of any 1910 season was the Track Team. The win- 
ning of the State championship was in no small part due to Coach Wagoner, who 
gave his time and effort in a most generous way. The material was good and the 
team well balanced, so that when a first place was lost, a second and third place 
was almost assured. Without a track and under adverse conditions, the men who 
worked through the three-months training season deserve great credit. The ma- 
terial is about the same for the season of 1911, with the exception of the weights.

"Polly," Captain, and fear of the op- 
posing teams, was ruled out at the begin- 
ning' of the season. He had the knack of 
knowing how to play, what to play, and 
when to play it. His loss was keenly felt. 

Dille is a good, heady player, a nervy 
fellow, a sure tackier, and is hard to 
catch in an open field. He played in 
only a few games this season, and did not 
have the opportunity to show up as he 
might have. 

" Had," without a doubt, was the hard- 
est and best tackier in the South. He 
was always to be depended upon for a 
game, and as an interference runner he 
stood without a peer. It was our hard 
luck that he was injured and was unable 
to play in the "big" game. He is Cap- 
tain-elect, and will be with us next vear. 

"Mae," left end, is one of the fastest 
men that ever donned A. and M. football 
togs. In going down after punts he was 
not excelled. He was the most consist- 
ent man on the team. We are sorry that 
he leaves this Commencement. 

Leo is known as the cleanest football 
player who ever came to A. and M. He 
was a hard worker, and much of the 
spirit of the team was due to his oft- 
repeated "Come on, fellows." At guard 
or tackle he always kept his opponent 
busy, and the line will miss him next 

"Cub" was a consistent player when 
in the game, but, on account of a very 
painful injury caused while practicing 
early in the season, he was never at his 
best. He came to us from the class 
games, and promises to make a brilliant 
player next year. He believes in hur- 
rying and "ruffing" things up. 


"Mike," the „" lady-killer," and line- 
smasher, is never forgotten by his oppo- 
nents. He showed his ability by having 
played several different positions. Op- 
ponents will be glad to hear that he will 
not don our football togs next year. 

"Corporal" was a terror to the oppos- 
ing back field. As an end, he always 
triedjjto do a little more than his share. 
Victory or defeat, he never let up. He 
played a most brilliant game against Au- 
burn and L. S. U. He is of All-Southern 

George is one of the hardest line-plung- 
ers in the South, and is excelled by few 
in circling the end. He is probably the 
hardest man on the team to tackle, as^he 
uses the stiff arm successfully. It will 
not surprise us to see him on the All- 
Southern list next year. 

"Head" ruined many a star's reputa- 
tion last year and built for himself __ a 
great name. He has the strength of 
"Beowulf" and speed to burn. He will 
make us an even more brilliant player 
next session. 

Morley, better known to us as "Top- 
sy," is one of the best back-field men in 
the South. He is quick, hits the line 
hard, a fierce tackier, and a great punter. 
He will wear an A. and M. uniform again 
next season, and will be a most valuable 
man on the team. Many predict for him 
a place in the front rank of the 191 2 All- 

"Tubby " is a man of few words, but of 
many deeds. He was a guard that was 
not often outclassed Very few gains 
were made over him, and he was always 
in the game. In case of a "fumble," 
"Tubby" was the man to recover the 



Vol. VII. 

"Pee Wee" was one of the largest and 
strongest men on the team, and had gin- 
ger to give away. He was a hard tack- 
ier, and when he had the ball in his pos- 
session, it usually took more than one 
man to down him. He will be with us 
next year. 

"Stank," the hard-hitting fullback of 
last session, was not able to take part in 
the majority of games this year on ac- 
count of illness and an injury. His ab' 
sence was always felt by the "bull-dogs.'- 
He is expected to be a strong contender 
for All-Southern next year. 

" Blondie " showed his ability as a ball-player by being given a position on the 
All-Southern eleven. He was our quarterback, and always used the best of judg- 
ment. He is a good ground-gainer, and in running back punts often brought them 
back to where they were kicked from. His playing in the Thanksgiving game was 
marvelous — almost superhuman. "Blondie" is a man that is greatly feared and 
admired by all opponents. He will be with us again next fall. 

"Shuckings" the fastest man lhat galloped en a Southern gridiron this year, 
showed his ability by making two tcuch-clcwns cut cf three runs in less than five 
minutes. He has also made himself famous en the basetall diamond by his won- 
derful pitching. It is regretted that he will not te with us after Ccmmencement. 

"Tom," the Kosciusko giant, was a strong man and played his position like a 
veteran. He played hard every second of every game that he took part in, and 
his playing against the University demonstrated the true qualities of a great player. 
Next fall his loss will be deeply felt.

"Mickey," the last year's Captain, will be missing from our baseball ranks 
this year, as he has played his four years in College ball. His steady work on 
many occasions has won for him great fame. His "pegging" and "receiving" 
will long be remembered in Southern college annals. 


"Cris" came to us from the amateur circles of Starkville with a record as a 
"slugger." His batting eye has not dimmed in the least since he began College 
ball. He has shattered many a pitcher's record by his hitting. He is Captain- 
elect for 191 i. 


"Jimmie," the fastest man and the one who stole more bases than any other 
on the team, will again receive the "pegs" next year. He handles himself around 
second base in big League style, picking up the hot and slow ones in the same easy, 
graceful manner. Great things are expected of this promising player. 


George is the long-distance hitter of the team. He hits them far a, d often, 
always at the right time and right place. He is exceptionally fast and covers a 
large amount of ground around short. We believe there is a great future in store 
for him. 


"Rusty" was the subject of many baseball conversations during his baseball 
career. He was a hard, consistent, and steady player, a sure hitter, and a good 
base-runner. His timelv three-baggers and "homers" were features of many 
games. We lose him by graduation. 

"Blondy," the football hero, showed that he could play baseball, too. He 
is a good fielder and a consistent hitter, always in the game, and trying to do a 
little more than is expected of him. He will return next year, and will , no doubt, 
serve as a great "gardener." 

"Big" Jennings, "Topsv," and sometimes known as the "old stand-by," was 
unable to play in all the games on account of the ruling of the S. I. A. A. fathers. 
However, in the few games that he participated in he showed exceptional ability 
as a baseball-player. He can plav any position on the team, but will more than 
likely play in the out-field next year. 

"Tom," the Meridian midget, known to many as "Chink," or "Jap," was one 
of .the "gardeners" and did some of the "receiving" last year. Although small of 
stature, age has given him experience, and physical training from childhood has 
given him the ability to handle himself as many larger men cannot. He possesses 
a cool and steady head, the absolute essential of an athlete. 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

"Shuckins," the iron man, was one of the three champions of the '09 team to 
return to us in '10. His iron arm and great nerve have won for him a wide repu- 
tation in the college world. He will be the mainstay of next year's pitching staff. 

Breland came to us as a "green" Freshman. After seeing him wcrk in his 
first game, it was thought that we had found another Willie Mitchell. It is re- 
gretted that he will not be with us next vear. 

Experience alone kept "Grudie" from playing in all the games. His stick- 
work was good, and he promises to make a brilliant player next year. 

One of our most promising and stalwart young men was plucked from our 
midst by the invisible hand of Death in the early days of this session. This young 
man had the making in him of a great baseball-player. The whole team sadly 
mourn his loss.

How Beautiful Is She! 

Good heavens! how beautiful and bright 

Is she for whom I sigh ! 
Love lurks within the liquid light 

Of that dark, dreaming eye; 
Sweet airs of vouth around her breathe 

And flutter in her train. 
Good heavens! how beautiful is she, 

And I so old and plain ! 

Good heavens! how beautiful is she, 

And fresh and fair as day ! 
Dark as the night her shining hair, 

Her lip a bud of May, 
Yet all unconscious of her power, 

Though hundreds sigh in vain. 
Good heavens! how beautiful is she. 

And I so old and plain! 

Good heavens! how beautiful is she! 

Can I her heart have won? 
I, from whose cheerless destiny 

All hope and joy had flown. 
Before her soft eyes smiled on me, 

Love seemed a vision vain. 
Good heavens! how beautiful is she, 

And I so old and plain ! 

Good heavens! how beautiful is she! 

And yet she loves me now; 
She brings the flower of maiden grace 

To deck this furrowed brow; 
She comes to gild my every joy, 

To soothe my every pain. 
Great heavens! how beautiful is she, 

And I so old and plain! 

Translated from the French by P. E. R., '13.

A Misunderstanding. 

"Mr. President?' 
" Mr. Lowry." 

" Fellows, the way I understand this proposition is, that we, the Senior Class, 
are to have a room in the new Y. M. C. A. building to be called the ' Class ' 1 1 Room,' 
provided we raise enough monev to furnish the room in good style. I have figured 
that we need $750 to put the room in good condition, and the question now before 
the Class is, How can we raise the monev? By subscription from the Class we 
have raised £200, but that is not enough. I suggest that we try our hand at an 
amateur theatrical performance and secure the money in that manner. As most 
of you know, we are not without seme geniuses in our Class, and my idea is that 
we give a minstrel show." 

That was the beginning. Lowry was placed in charge, and by the end of the 
week rehearsals were being held everv night. They had a full supply of jokes on 
the professors and others; there were vocal and instrumental solos; Thompson was 
a good imitator, and Norman was a contortionist, but the principal feature was 
the artistic manner in which Horston could pick a chicken eff the roost. The 
scene for this act was a barnyard, with the chickens roosting on a limb near the 
ground. Horston would crawl until he got within about ten feet of the tree, then 
he would lie down and wiggle toward the tree until he got directly under the 
chickens. Raising himself slowly until he could reach the fowls, his eyes seemed 
to fall naturally upon the largest. A few strokes under the chicken's neck, a 
barely audible "Caw, caw," and the chicken belonged to him. 

The show was progressing finely, and had already been advertised to take 
place within ten davs. With each rehearsal Horston became better, and was the 
talk of all the members of the Class. 

Everything went along pretty well until Butler met Weems in the postoffice 
three days before the show was to be given, and accosted him with: "Well, 
Weems, how is everything?" 

"O. K., except that I am afraid about Horston," replied Weems. 

"Everything would be ruined if the President knew that Horston stole 
chickens," broke off Butler, but not until he had been heard by Professors Ken- 
nedv and Kav, who had just entered the postoffice. 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

All would have doubtless gone well after that had it not been for the fact 
that both of these professors had been missing chickens and, in fact, were talk- 
ing of chicken-stealing when they entered the postoffice. After trying to find 
(int more in regard to Horston's stealing chickens, but finding it impossible, the 
professors reported the matter to the President. 

The next morning at Chapel the President announced that Mr. Horston, Mr. 
Butler, and Mr. Weems would return to their rooms under arrest and report to the 
Faculty meeting at 10 o'clock. 

"Bart, you fight shy of all those Faculty meetings. I tell you I was never so 
scared in all my life as I was when I went into that room yesterday morning," was 
the greeting I received from Horston the day after. "There seemed to be twenty- 
five men there and everyone had his eyes glued upon me. I sure felt like leaning 
against something. I was in a quandary as to why I was called before the Fac- 
ulty, but was soon enlightened. 

"The President seemed a bit uneasy, but in calling the members to order he 
regained his self-control and made a long harangue on chicken-stealing. He said 
that was the part the ' measley, wishy-washy ' negro played in the great school of 
life, and had no part whatever in this institution; that any man who lowered him- 
self to that depth had no place in a decent community, and that my pride and self- 
respect, as well as the love I should have borne towards the professors, ought to 
have kept me from doing any such deed. It was at this point that I offered to 
clear the whole affair by a few words, when a stern 'Be quiet, sir,' from the Presi- 
dent brought me to my senses. 'Professor Kennedy, we will now have vour evi- 
dence in this case,' continued the President. 

"Professor Kennedy said that he had a very fine lot of chickens, but that he 
had been missing them of late, and he had no idea who was taking them until he 
stepped into the postoffice with Professor Kay and overheard the conversation 
between Mr. Butler and Mr. Weems. He said that he heard Mr. Butler tell Mr. 
Weems that ' everything would be ruined if the President knew that Horston stole 
chickens,' and concluded that it was Mr. Horston who had been making away 
with his chickens. 

' ' Very good, sir. We will now ask Professor Kay to state his evidence in this 
most disgraceful affair,' answered the President. 

" Professor Kay's testimony bore out to the letter the evidence of Professor 

1 " 'Very good, sir,' the President replied. 'Now I am going to ask Mr. Butler 
to state his side of the case in this matter, and I warn you that unless vou offer an 
exceptionally good defenscvthe three of you — Mr. Horston, Mr. Weems, and vou — 
must consider yourselves expelled from this institution. Now, sir, we want the 
truth,' the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help vou God.' 




Vol. VII. 

' 'Mr. President and members of the Faculty,' returned Butler, 'if I had been 
permitted to speak at first, this matter would have been cleared up before it had 
gone this far. As most of you know, the Senior Class is to produce a minstrel show, 
and it was regarding the principal feature that I was speaking when these gentle- 
men overheard my conversation with Mr. Weems. IJWhat I intended saying was, 
that everything would be ruined if the President knew that Mr. Horston stole 
chickens in the shaw; that is a special act and we decided to keep it a secret, as we 
were afraid the President would not let us show it on^account of creating an un- 
favorable impression upon the audience regarding the general conduct of the stu- 
dents.' That was as far as he got. Well, the stillness that prevailed reminded me 
of the deathly silence that always precedes the leap of the high-diver. Then — 

' 'Discharged,' drawled the President, 'and I give you my permission to use 
anything you see fit in your minstrel show.' 

"Bart," continued Horston, "I tell you it would have done you good to see 
the way that meeting broke up. Kverv member of the Faculty, including the 
President, bought a ticket for each member of his family, and some of them believe 
in Roosevelt's doctrine in regard to race suicide, too." 

The Committee on Advertising used the Faculty meeting as an advertisement, 
and the minstrel was played before a crowded house. 

It is needless to say that more than enough money — in fact, $784 — was raised, 
and the room will always remain as a memento of the Class of '11.

The Young Men's Christian Association is the largest student organization in 
the world. The scope of it is contained in the words, Spirit, Mind, and Body — in 
other words, the all-around developed man. The perfection of these three — Spirit, 
Mind, and Body — constitute the highest development that can be reached. The 
local Association is a part of the International Association and is under the direc- 
tion of an Advisory Board composed of members of the Facultv, a Cabinet selected 
from the student body, and a General Secretarv, who gives his entire time to the 
work of the Association. 

The work of the Young Men's Christian Association is large and varied, and 
students and Facultv recognize the important place it is occupying in our College 

The Association works upon the principle that the more a man puts into it 
the more he gets out of it. The Association offers opportunity for development. 
Prayer-meetings are held each Tuesday and Thursday evenings. These meetings 
are very helpful, and there has been an average attendance of sixty-five at these 
meetings. The regular meeting of the Association is held on Sunday evening, with 
an average attendance of 231. These meetings are led bv members of the Faculty, 
students, and strong outside speakers. 

The membership of the Association has reached the 590 mark during the past 
vear. Five hundred and fiftv-five men have been enrolled in Bible study, with an 
average attendance of 350. Leaders of 37 classes in which these men are enrolled 
are coached in Normal classes by two of the pastors from Starkville. 

There has been a strong interest shown in all departments during the past year. 
Men are beginning to see that the religious life is the true life. May the day soon 
come when every man in College will become a loval supporter of the Association. 
We quote the following from Dr. Logan : 

" I consider the College Young Men's Christian Association the most important 
of student organizations, both from the standpoint of its aims and purposes and 
also from its larger membership."

The Special Delivery. 

Amos Jenkins, farmer, proprietor of the general calico and chewing tobacco 
dispensary, and also postmaster, was assorting the morning mail that had just 
come in He picked up the letters very slowly and read the addresses as if he were 
preaching a funeral sermon. 

"Mr. Samuel Robertson," he read. "Um-m-m. Yes, I guess that's from 
his son in Texas. Miss Mary Smith. I reckon she 'smade up with that feller over 
to the city. I see he 's writin' post-cards to her again. I s'pose it won't be any 
harm to see what he has to sav." 

He stopped and read the card carefully, then put it in a compartment, and 
picked up another letter. 

"Well, well, what 's this Mrs. Sarah Turner. S-p-e-c-i-a-1 d-e-1-i-v-e-r-y, 
special delivery. I wonder what 's that for? Lemme see. Old Man Robert 
Graham got one three years ago when his brother died. Um-m-m. Yes, I '11 
have to ask Mandy about this." He went to the door and called: "Mande-e! O 
Mandy! come here." 

His wife came around the corner of the house, wiping her hands on her apron. 
The two went together into the store and held a consultation over the letter. 
Amos thought that the letter ought to be carried on a bicvcle, since the stamp had 
on it the picture of a man riding one. 

" I tell you, Mandy," he said, "this here beih' postmaster puts a mighty heap 
of responsibility on a man. Now, there ain't nobody 'round here got one of them 
bicycles, and if we had one, there ain't none of us could ride it, and if we could ride it, 
the roads is too rough to use it. I don't think Uncle Sam would be so particular 
anyhow, so I guess you 'd better tell one of the boys to saddle up the old mare and 
I '11 carry it that way. And send one of the kids over to the corn-field and git 
Mike to come and 'tend to the store while I 'm gone. I hate to stop him from his 
work while the crop needs plowing so bad, but this might be a matter of life and 
death. Um-m-m. Yes, I can't quite make out the town, but it 's some place in 
Kentuckv, and vou know that 's where Aunt Sarah's married daughter lives. No 
tellin', she may be dead or else lavin' on her death-bed this very minute. Tell them 
boys to hurry up, 'cause it 's a good four miles over to the old man Turner's place, 
and I don't want to lose a minute." 

And so within a few minutes Mike Jenkins had stopped his work to take charge 
of the store, Amos Jenkins had mounted the old mare, and, with the precious docu- 
ment safely in his breast-pocket, had gone galloping down the road as fast as he 
could make the sedate, dignified mare go, while Mrs. Jenkins had become so ex- 
cited that she let all the dinner burn up in the stove while she was telling the 
neighburs about it. 

As Amos pounded madly on toward his goal all the people living along the 
road rushed to their doors to see what was the matter, but Amos never paused to 

1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

explain. At last, after a hard half-hour's ride, he reached his destination. The 
people had heard him coming and were at the gate to meet him. He jumped to 
the ground, pulled out the letter and handed it to Aunt Sarah, then took out his 
bandana and swabbed the perspiration from his face. 

Aunt Sarah glanced at the address. 

"It 's from my Susie. My land! I wonder if she 's sick. And her 'way up 
there in Kentucky, too! O Lord, have mercy!" 

By this time all the children, Aunt Sarah's maiden sister, and the hired girl 
had crowded around her, and old man Turner was running up from the barn, Aunt 
Sarah opened the letter with trembling fingers. It contained but a single sheet. 
She unfolded it and read aloud : 

"Dear Mamma, — What do you think 2 Baby has a tooth. Will write and 
tell you all about it soon. "Your loving daughter, 


Amos gasped and swore inwardly. He slowly climbed into his saddle and 
rode awav. He hooked the bridle over the saddle-horn, sunk his hands in his 
deep in his pockets, and let the old mare walk as slowly as she pleased. It took 
him an hour and a half to make the return trip. As he rode slowly along Amos 
dropped his head on his chest in deep meditation. Now and then he shook his 
head sadly. Only once he muttered a few words. 

" Wa-a-11, I '11 swear! Of all creatures a woman is the curiosest," he said. 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

If I Had a Thousand Hearts. 

A charming figure 'fore me flies, 

It is the maid with dreamy eyes, 

And grave emotions are a-whirl, 

For long ago she was my girl ; 

How often has her hand been pressed. 

And dimpled cheek by me caressed, 

In blissful days of long ago! 

Hut things have greatly changed, you know. 

I see them all pass on in line, 

The manv girls I once called "mine"; 

For Cupid shot so many darts 

I had more girls than I had hearts. 

A part I lost in each new place, 

A heart for every smiling face, 

In blissful days of long ago; 

Hut things have greatly changed, you know. 

For manv hearts I often yearned, 

As fires within me glowed and burned ; 

A heart for each maid in the train, 

And I to love each one the same. 

If I had thousands, and all true, 

I 'd give each heart to only you, 

For since those days of long ago, 

Evervthing has changed, you know. C. T. R. 

The Girl's Answer. 

The Girl's Answer. 
A charming poem came to me 

And it was more than fine, 
The sentiment quite touched my heart, 

I enjoved it — every line. 
And do you really mean, my dear, 

If all those hearts were thine, 
That, honestly and truthfully, 

They should all be mine?' 

What would I do with all that wealth? 

Just one would do for me; 
And since I 've only one to give, 

I '11 ask not more of thee. 
One heart from vou, whole and sincere, 

Would fill my cup of bliss. 
Already I have yours, you know, 

And mine I send with this. Girl.

'Have you ever kissed a girl before, or tried?" 

'No," he answered; she was sure he lied. 
Then, with willing lips, she whispered, "Well, 
Yes, you may, since vou don't kiss and tell."

The Extra-Walker's Twenty-third Psalm. 

The^Officer of the Dav is my shepherd. I shall not want for his attentions on 
Saturday afternoon. 

He maketh me not to lie down on the green grass; [he leadeth me beside the 
cool shade-trees, but he permitteth me not to stop and fan myself. 

He restoreth not the soles I wear out ; he leadeth me in the paths of roughness 
for the shoemaker's sake. 

Yea, though I walk through the'shadow of the^ Dormitory, I fear to slip off, 
for thou art with[me, and thv sergeant or thy corporal they always confront me. 

My head is anointed with perspiration, my cup of woe runneth over. 

Surely reports and extra duties shall follow me all the days of my life, and I 
shall tread the Campus forever.

His eyes and mouth were full of hair, 

His arms were full of girl. 

A Toast. 

Here 's to the lasses we 've loved, my lad, 
Here 's to the lips we 've pressed : 

For of kisses and lasses, 

Like liquor in glasses, 
The last is always the best. 

Some love their country's flag, 
Some love cherry pie; 

But my love is expressed 
In my love for big "I."

The different clubs of our College, as anyone can see by glancing at this book, 
play a very important part in the social life of the students. The purposes of these 
organizations are many and varied, there being dancing, feasting, hunting, so- 
cial, and county clubs. 

The dancing clubs — such as German, Cotillion, and junior Clubs — give several 
dances each year, which add a great deal to the pleasures of a College man's life; 
the feasting and social clubs meet together and have feasts, banquets, and good 
times generally; the hunting clubs take frequent hunts in the vicinity of the 
College, looking for different kinds of "game"; while county clubs are organized 
for the purpose of the members becoming better acquainted with their own counties 
and creating more intimate friendship ties among them. 

These various county clubs increase the enrollment for the College. The 
members get in touch with the bovs back at home who will finish at the high schools, 
or those who contemplate going to college, and explain to them the many advant- 
ages that A. and M. offers, and in this way benefit the College.

1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

Barnard the Artist. 

On one bright and sunnv July afternoon, in a coupe of a train going from Ver- 
sailles to Paris, there was sitting a number of young men. The party consisted of 
five students of art, of whom Petit and Lassale were painters, Zupe and Didero 
musicians, and Frank a sculptor. A lively conversation was going on between 
them about Barnard, a well-known sculptor, and his works. The discourse was at 
a high pitch of animation when Zupe interrupted by the following interrogation : 

"Say, boys, do you know that Barnard is going abroad?" 

"Reallv!" exclaimed Petit; "is he taking his beautiful Josephine along 
with him? 

"No, sir, he is not," answered Zupe; "and this is the surprising part of the 
news," he added, in a solemn tone. 

"Strange," observed Lassale, on hearing Zupe's replv. "Barnard is going 
abroad, leaving Josephine behind him? Strange, strange — " 

" Strange ^ It is not more strange than the fact that Barnard has not appeared 
in society for the last few months, and he seems even to shun his old friends," 
responded Zupe to Lassale's observation. 

A momentary silence ensued. 

"Barnard's character has always struck me with its singularity," said Didero, 
breaking the silence. "His hot-headedness on the one hand and his indifference, 
or rather, apathv, on the other, were always puzzling me, while the features of his 
love-affairs rendered his character entirelv incomprehensible to me; ves, incom- 

Silence again ensued. 

"By the way," broke in Petit; his face brightened up by a new idea, "here is 
Frank, Barnard's most intimate ijiend, sitting quietly in the corner; let us make 
him tell us something about Barn^d's life and adventures." 

Petit's proposal was readily accepted and immediately put before Frank. 

Frank, who until this moment did not take any part in the conversation, but 
sat still in the corner and silently smoked his pipe, refused to do it at first, saying 
that this was a personal affair; but, after a pressing request on their part,- he gave 
his consent. 

"Eight or nine years ago," he began, "Barnard and I came to Paris to study 
sculpture. We were very intimate friends at home, but our greenness in this great 
city made our friendship still closer. Every impression and every little incident 
that occurred during the day we used to relate to each other, rejoicing at our suc- 
cesses and grieving over our failures. 

"One evening Barnard came to me and told me that he had become acquainted 
with a girl by the name of Josephine. She studied music in the Conservatory of 
Paris, and, according to his statement, was an exceptionally bright young lady. I 
congratulated him very cordially on his success in making friends and wished him 
further success in the future. 

"Beginning with that evening, he used to call on me every evening and report 
to me with great enthusiasm the discoveries he had made in Josephine's character 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

during the day. These were various, but all in her favor, of course. Their ac- 
quaintance grew more and more intimate. 

"Some time passed awav. Intimacy was converted into mutual sympathy 
and, in its turn, resulted in his falling deeply in love with her. Josephine became 
his ideal. For hours on end he would sit up in my room at night, telling me of her 
divine talent in music, of her unsurpassed beauty, and of many other things of this 
nature. To speak of her was apparently a source of pleasure to him. Then the 
thought of marriage presented itself to his mind. At first this thought frightened 
him and seemed too bold; but as time rolled on his mind became accustomed to 
this thought and it gradually transformed itself into a governing idea. 

' 'I cannot imagine how I could live without Josephine,' he said once to me 
when the conversation touched the question of his marriage. The romance, as it 
is seen, was reaching its climax, but how tragic was the conclusion! 

"On one gloomy and cloudy autumn morning, while 1 was still in bed, Barnard 
broke into my room. The deathly paleness of his face, the unnatural sparkling 
of his eyes, and the strange quivering of his lips, all bespoke terrible agitation. 

''What is the matter with you, Barnard? 1 ' I exclaimed, wondering what 
could have caused such a dreadful change in him. 

'Oh, Frank ! Josephine ! ' He stopped, not being able to proceed, and gasped 
for breath. 'Josephine is lost to me forever!' he finished with a scream. Here 
he leaned forward with his elbows on his knees, and, covering his face with his 
hands, he broke into tears — thev were tears of desolation. 

"I then understood that Josephine was married to another. The effect pro- 
duced on Barnard by this fatal change of fortune was terrible. He abandoned his 
work and his friends, rambling over the crowded streets of Paris from early morn- 
ing until late at night, and seeking in the noise of the crowd some relief from the 
distress of his mind. He did not eat and did not sleep. At last he was lost sight 
of altogether. He disappeared from Paris. Whither did he go? 1 with what inten- 
tion 2 No one knew. 

"Three weeks elapsed. Barnard had not been heard of yet. Dreadful appre- 
hensions about his fate began to fill my mind. Had he committed suicide? This 
question caused my heart to beat slower in a fit of consternation. At the end of 
the fourth week Barnard appeared. His appearance was as unexpected as his 
disappearance. I was sitting on that dav in my studio, looking over some of my 
work. A knock at the door was heard. On my 'Come in' the door opened, and 
in walked, to my great surprise and delight, Barnard. He was not alone; a beau- 
tiful young lady accompanied him, whom he introduced to me as his wife. Her 
name was Helen. Barnard seemed entirely recovered; his face was glowing 
with health. 

"Who was Helen? Where had he found her? And how did he come to 
marry her 5 These were things inexplicable to us at that time and they remain so 
even now. The striking feature in Helen's beauty was that it resembled very 
closely that of Josephine — a remarkable fact. Was this the cause of their ac- 
quaintance and of his attachment for her 5 

"Barnard was happy. The immediate result of his happiness was that his 
artistic work .was crowned with great success. All his statues were highly appre- 
ciated by the best critics and the demand for them was growing in the market. 

"In the second year after his marriage Barnard completed his great statue, 
' The Hope,' which produced a great sensation in the world of art. He was awarded 
first prize by the French Society of Art, and his name became quite popular, not 
only in France, but abroad. 

"My friends and I went to see the statue immediately after its appearance 


1911. REVEILLE. Vol. VII. 

hAhe Gallery of Art. 'The Hope' represented a beautiful maiden; but not the 
remarkable shape of the maiden's figure, not the exquisite symmetry of the outlines 
of her enchanting body, and not all the other perfections in the statue that called 
forth admiration from the observer and spoke of the great talent of its creator, 
was that which impressed me the greatest; it was the striking resemblance between 
the features of the cold marble statue and those of Josephine. This resemblance, 
strange to say, filled my heart with ill presentiments about Helen's fate. 

"My evil forebodings proved to be true. Barnard's and Helen's happiness 
was of short duration. At the end of the second year after his marriage he came 
to realize that his love for Helen was no more than a mirage. He became aware of 
the fact that he loved Helen not for herself, but for her resemblance to Josephine. 
This relentless truth of his relation to Helen was not noticed by him when he met 
her at first, for his distress was so great and his love for Josephine so strong that 
the resemblance between Helen and Josephine was sufficient to make him happy. 
The effect of this resemblance was not noticed by him during the first two vears of 
their married life, for his work and the rush for fame occupied his mind. Now, 
when his passion had subsided, he became conscious of the fact that he had no love 
in his heart for Helen. His consciousness was troubled. The expression of hap- 
piness and satisfaction on his face was replaced by an expression of discontented 

"Helen, on her part, saw the change of his relations to her, and her heart was 
broken. She could not endure long her distress, and died in the fifth year of 
her marriage. 

"It happened that Josephine's husband died at the same time. Barnard at 
once became a frequent visitor in her heme, and before half a year had elapsed 
after Helen's death it was announced that Barnard had married Josephine. At 
last all his dreams were realized. Josephine was his. Happy! Happy! 

"I was not in Baris when this marriage took place, and therefore, not being 
able to attend it, I sent my congratulations to Barnard by mail. 

"On my return to Baris, one year after their marriage, the first thing I did 
was to visit Barnard. I met him on the street as I was going to his residence. To 
my great surprise, I noticed that Barnard looked very dejected. On my inquiring 
what was the matter with him, he did not answer, but, taking me by the arm, in- 
vited me to go with him into a cafe. I complied. While sitting at the table, he 
said to me : 

" 'Frank, my life is a tragedy — or, better, a comic-tragedy,' he corrected him- 
self with a bitter smile.- 'I married Helen just in spite of my misfortune, just to 
avenge it; but I soon came to realize that a troubled conscience and a troubled 
mind were the consequences of it. When she died, I felt relieved. I married Jo- 
sephine then, and there was no limit to my happiness. But how short a time it 
lasted ! 

' ' Only six months after our marriage I began to realize that the five years 
with Helen were not without results. Her image began to appear before me while 
I was in solitude. I then sought refuge from it in Josephine's company, but soon 
even this was in vain. Helen's image steed before my eyes all the time, and I con- 
fess I began to love her image. Then Josephine lost her influence over me; when I 
realized this, there was no limit to my distress. My mind was troubled and is 
troubled now — terribly troubled. All my happiness is gone, and dark and gloomy 
is the future.' 

"Boor Barnard!" 

Frank's story was finished. The train arrived at Baris at this moment. They 
parted in silence, for their minds were filled with thoughts of Frank's narrative.

The Fatherland. 

Where is the true man's fatherland? 

Is it where he by chance is born? 

Doth not the yearning spirit scorn 
In such scant borders to be spanned? 
Oh, yes! His fatherland must be 
As the blue heaven, wide and free. 

Is it alone where freedom is, 

Where God is God and man is man? 

Doth he not claim a broader span 
For the soul's love of home than this? 
Oh, yes! His fatherland must be 
As the blue heaven, wide and free. 

Where'er a human heart doth wear 

Joy's myrtle wreath or sorrow's gyves; 

Where'er a human spirit strives 
After life more true and fair, 
There is the true man's birthplace grand; 
His is a world-wide fatherland. 

Where'er a single slave doth pine, 
Where'er one man may help another, 
Thank God for such a birthplace, brother; 

That spot of earth is thine and mine! 

There is the true man's birthplace grand; 

His is a world-wide fatherland. E. S.

For simple sadness there ne'er was found 
A sweeter strain than that clear sound. 
O muse and musician, give 'tentive ear! 
'Tis music and melody that you hear 
When "Taps" is blowing. 

Why it is, my lad, my lad in grav, 
We feel so sad ? Oh ! can you say 
Why it is that we hold our breath 
In the hush so still, as still as death, 
When "Taps" is blowing? 

Listen, my lad, and you shall hear 
Just why it is we drop a tear, 
As if gathered round a new-made mound, 
We bare our heads to its sacred sound 
When "Taps" is blowing. 

Full many a thousand heroes brave 
Were brought from battle-field to grave, 
And there, with no loved ones to weep, 
Were left to their eternal sleep, 

While "Taps" was blowing. 

Through the ages its sad notes have blown 
Amid death and destruction, until it has grown 
That when we hear those notes to-day, 
We listen to death's soft lullaby, 
When "Taps" is blowing. 

Are we not drifting, nor stopping to think 
Until we have reached the eternal brink? 
Have we convictions and lived to them true? 
Then there's no fear when 'tis whispered to you 
That "Taps" is blowing.
