£ OR many years the publication of a College Annual has been con- 
templated by both faculty and students of the institution, but 
not until the present year has anything of a definite character 
been attempted. Last fall the Athletic Association took the 
matter under consideration and after careful deliberation de- 
cided that the enterprise should be inaugurated. Suitable regu- 
lations were formed and the present staff elected. 

We cannot say our task has been easy, or our burdens light, but after 
much planning and frequent meetings — we hold our business sessions at the 
Annex- -we have gladly, cheerfully, and hopefully accomplished the work 

We trust the reader will find the breezes of The Sou'wester pleasant, and 
may many students each Commencement be fanned into a more lively hope 
for future success, as The Sou'wester, on airy wings, wafts unto them the 
record of their college days. 

We wish to thank especially Misses Thomas, Bowen, Wilcox, Bailey, and 
Messrs. Johnson, Whittle, Thomas, and Prof. Hardy for valuable aid. 

All kickers will pleat e report to the Assistant Business Managers, as the 
Editor-in-Chief and General Business Manager have charge only of the Depart- 
ment of Compliments. Selah. 

University Building. 

A Short Historical Sketch of Southwestern University. 

Southwestern university is the successor 

of four other institutions founded at some time by 
Texas Methodism: Rutterville College, chartered 
in 1840; Wesleyan College, of San Augustine, in 
1844; McKenzie College, founded in 1841 ; and finally Soule 
University, founded at Chapel Hill, in 1855. All except the 
last named succumbed to the Civil War or other causes. Soule 
University, though apparently killed by the war, nevertheless 
was revived in 1865, and dragged out a lingering existence for 
some years. In 1868 the trustees, hoping even yet to enliven the 
corpse of the old Soule University, invited to its presidency the 
Rev. Francis Asbury Mood, of South Carolina. 

It did not require long for Dr. Mood to see that neither for 
Soule University nor any other school of that sort was there 
any hope unless he could get all Texas Methodism united to its 
support. But there lay the difficulty. The brethren of the 
various conferences were enjoying to only a very modest degree 
that pleasure which comes from dwelling together in unity. 
Indeed, while there was not, to be sure, open warfare, the condi- 
tion could have been designated as one of armed peace, and there 
were many who were ready to assure Dr. Mood that the status 
was a natural one and could not be otherwise. 

But here lay the only chance. Harmony must be secured, 
and with wonderful tact Dr. Mood went about his task. A less 

determined, less faithful, a smaller man in any respect would 
have given the work up. but Dr. Mood kept on, proving the ex- 
cellence of his diplomatic skill by securing the calling of an educa- 
tional convention to meet at Galveston in 1870, at which all the 
conferences were represented. Here the matter took definite 
shape. It was decided to place at some central town a rmivers- 
ity which should fitly represent Texas Methodism. Soule Uni- 
versity was to give place to this new institution. 

After some two years of discussion, Georgetown was selected 
as the site of the proposed university, and in 1873 the faculty 
was elected. It was composed of three members: Dr. Mood, 
Regent and Professor of Mental and Moral Philosophy, History 
and English Literature; B. E. Chreitzberg, A.M., Professor of 
Mathematics; H. M. Reynolds, M. D., Professor of Spanish. 
During the sesssion there were enrolled thirty-three students. 

From this rather modest beginning the institution, then 
called the Texas University, began its life. In 1874 Prof. S. G. 
Sanders was added to the list of professors. In 1876 the name 
was changed to Southwestern University, on account of the re- 
fusal of the State Legislature to charter any but a State institu- 
tion under the former name. 

It soon became evident that the people of Texas desired 
not their sons alone, but their daughters as well, to be educated, 
so in 1878 plans were adopted which resulted in the establish- 
ment of the Ladies' Annex. This institution was at first almost 


entirely separate from the University, the only point of connec- 
tion being that the professors in the University also gave instruc- 
tion in the Annex. 

Through Dr. Mood's eleven years of regency the University 
and Annex grew and flourished side by side. The first session 
had begun with three instructors, the twelfth with fifteen. The 
first session had enrolled thirty-three pupils; the twelfth, three 
hundred and sixty-one. 

After Dr. Mood's death, in 1884, the regency was placed in 
the hands of Dr. J. W. Heidt, under whose administration the 
University continued its flourishing career. In 1899 Dr. Heidt 
resigned and Dr. J. H. McLean was elected to the regency. 
During his term the need for new buildings became apparent. 
There were already built the old University building, the Fitting 
School building, the Annex, and Giddings Hall, but the increased 
attendance at the University demanded still further change. In 

1894 an effort to raise funds for the new building was begun, 
and Dr. W. M. Hays was appointed financial agent. Through 
his efforts and those of his successor, Dr. F. B. Sinex, a little 
over $50 000 was secured. The new building was begun, and in 
1900 was completed. It has been called the most beautiful 
single school building in the South. 

In 1S98 the entrance requirements were so raised as to cut 
down the attendance somewhat, but it has since been constantly 
growing until during the present session it will reach more than 
four hundred. 

In 1897 Dr. McLean resigned the regency, and in 1898 Dr. 
R. S. liver was elected to fill the vacancy. Under his manage- 
ment the friends of Southwestern have seen the institution grow 
still further, not in material prosperity alone, but into a broader 
life which promises well for the future.

R. S. HYER, A.M., L.L.D., Regent. 

Professor of Physics. 

Robert Stewart Hyer is a typical Southerner, his native state being Georgia. His college education was received at Emory 
College, Oxford, Georgia. In 1900, the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws was conferred upon him by Central College, Fayetteville, 

He became a professor of Southwestern University in 1882, and despite the special inducements from larger institutions, he 
has remained with his beloved employ in Southwestern. There is now a movement well under way looking to the endowment of the 
"R. S. Hyer Chair of Physics." Friends all over Texas are contributing and success is assured. 

Dr. Hyer was elected Regent in 1S9S. The raising of the curriculum, the opening of the New Building, the enlargement of 
the corps of instructors, the creation of the Summer School of Theology, the addition of new equipment, and the establishment of 
the Southwestern University Medical College, at Dallas, Texas, attest the efficiency of his administration. As a scientist, Dr. Hyer 
is almost without equal in the South. 



C. C. CODY, A.M., Ph.D., 


Claude Carr Cody was born in Covington, Ga., Nov. 5, 1854. His collegiate education was received at Emory College, Ga. ; he was

degree of Master of Arts from Emory College, and later he received the Ph. D. degree from the same institution. He was elected to 
the Chair of Mathematics in 1879, which position he still holds, having been for many years the Secretary of the Faculty, and at

"As men who are making objects coarse and rough 
Give all such articles a mass and size redundant, 
Showing they have material abundant ; 
But when at work in silver, gems, and gold 
.Make all such articles in smaller mold. 
So Nature found material was not granted 
For making our class the full size she wanted. 
She, no doubt, would have made us five feet five, 
Apollo's height, but could not quite contrive 
To gather raw material enough 
Without mixing some of common stuff. 

Said Nature: 'This shall be a first-class article, 
Soul, mind, and person shall not have a particle of stuff 
That's not divine, ethereal. 
It can't be helped — 

I cannot make them tall — 
I'll make them precious, 
But they must be small.' '

The Alamo was founded in 1873. It is the legitimate suc- 
cessor of the Alpha Society in Saul University. The library it 
owns numbers about twenty-five hundred books, all of which 
the members have access to. We boast of an enrollment of 
about sixty-five members. 

"To incite the ambition of its members towar 1 virtue, to- 
ward oratory, and argumentation, is its purpose." 

During the year we are represented in three public debates. 
In our Intermediate debate this year we were ably represented 
by Messrs. Vincent, Veach, Phillips and Starford. The Alamo 
and their sister society, the San Jacinto, have seen fit not to 
have an Intercollegiate debate, but we feel sure that Mr. Cooper 

would have upheld the record of the Alamo, had we decided 
otherwise. Messrs. Bounds and Newberry will endeavor to "put 
the fixin' " on the San Jacks when the time comes t> conte t for 
the Judge R. E. Brooks Prize Debate. The office of Editor-in- 
Chief of the Magazine fell to the Alamos this year, and Mr. 
Wheeler has faithfully performed the arduous tasks of that office. 
On the Annual staff, we have Mr. Cooper, Editor-in-Chief ; 
Cody, Assistant Business Manager; Carter, Alamo Editor; Clark, 
Fitting School Editor; Webb, Phi Editor; Bounds, K. A. Editor. 
New students would do well to visit the Alamo Society 
before becoming a member of an organization of its kind, for 
"to know us is to love us."

San Jacinto. 

Eloquence in its real and true sense is one of the noblest 
gifts of God, a gift by no means to be despised. Now and then 
we find a God-gifted orator, but eloquence, as a rule, is a gift 
that must be cultivated. Eloquence embodies a perfect control 
of two things — thought and speech. Tis seldom we find the 
two fully developed in a man. The best place to acquire the best 
results in this line is through the aid of the debating society. 

Southwestern University boasts two of the best equipped, 
fully organized debating societies in the South. From their 
halls have gone out men of ability, and some renown. 

The San Jacinto Society was established in 1879, three years 
later than her sister society. Since the two are about of equal 
size and ability, an annual debate between them is the closing 
and most imposing feature of the Commencement exercises. 
Though slightly the junior, San Jacinto has established her rec- 
ord as the best debater. During the last four years San Jacinto 
has won the decision in three of the four debates, the Alamos 
somehow getting off with one, and this year we intend to make 
it four to one. 

San Jacinto has always claimed the "men of the school," and 
has been in the habit of taking off her share, or even more, of the 
honors; of the last year's honors San Jacinto took the following: 

Junior Orator's Medal. 

Freshman-Sophomore Declaimer's Medal. 

Fitting School Declaimer's Medal. 

Junior-Senior Essay Medal. 

Freshman-Sophomore Essay Medal. 

Magazine Literary Medal. 

Salutatory of Class of '03. 

In fact, a San Jacinto won every honor to which a student 
is eligible, except the State Oratorical Representative. 

San Jacinto was ably represented on the baseball team by 
five men. including the captain of the team, and on the track 
team by every man. 

Statistics show that San Jacinto is neither dead nor sleep- 
ing, and no doubt will be hanging around when honors are doled 
out this year. 

San Jacinto is the possessor of a library of several hundred 
volumes of reference books and classics. It is now placed in the 
San Jacinto Alcove of the University Library, and under the 
supervision of the Librarian. 

This year San Jacinto will be ably represented in the annual 
debate by S. M. Black and W. A. Tarver, who will, no doubt, 
place the Brooks Debate Prize where it belongs — in San Jacinto's

(\ Brief History of the Clio Society. 

Every conscientious historian dives into the annals of lire 
past that he may bring some rare bit of information to the sur- 
face, and this writer has read old editions of the Alamo and 
San Jacinto Monthly, and the An-x, till it is a temptation to 
revel in memories, rather than to write. There were eleven of 
us that felt the necessity of a new society in the Annex — the 
need of a spirit of rivalry — and oh, we had it in those first 
years! With Prof. Cody to guide and advise, we soon had a 
society that rivalled the A'ethean in enthusiasm if not in numbers. 

To be as classical as our sister organization we chose the 
euphonious name "Calliopean "; but alas, the Alamos and San 
Jacintos called us "Cantaloupes," and in haste we rechristined 

ourselves and became "Clios." We re-organized in September, 
18S6, and the following is a list of the first officers: 

President — Miss Lovey Mackey. 

V ice-President — Miss Bessie Graham. 

Critic — Miss Forence Williams. 

Secretary — Miss Lillie Gomert. 

Corresponding Secretary — Miss Cornie Hodges. 

Treasurer — Miss Willie Sampey. 

Censor Morum — Miss Maggie Young. 

There were four of us left for an audience: Misses Eunice 
McLean, Leila Fain, Cora Rucker and Mamie Howren. Prof. 
Cody wrote our constitution for us, chose our motto and design 


for badge, and cruelly selected as our anniversary February 22d., 
destroying all chance of an extra holiday. Our motto was: 
"We fly with our own wings," appropriately expressed in the 
most classical of Latin, and our badge, an old English "C" still 
the prettiest of the society badges in S. W. U. As little sisters 
strive to imitate their big brothers, so did we in our programs. 
We scorned the ordinary recitations and songs ; we had great 
debates with our affirmatives and negatives and "whereas-es." 

Our society was first in our hearts; we loved it, we strove 
for honors for its sake, and we gave our best towards its develop- 
ment. On our first anniversary, we proudly marched into the 
auditorium and listened to a most elequent address on "The 
Southern Woman," by our regent, Dr. Heidt. 

Three of our number have been called to the life beyond — ■ 

Bessie Graham, Cornie Hodges and Cora Rucker. < >f the others, 
all save two have been married several years, and are scattered 
over our wide State. Miss Lillie Gomert is teaching in San An- 
tonio, and the present writer is endeavoring to show "young 
shoots how to idea" in the Fitting School, the once loved halls 
of Southwestern. 

The spirit and enthusiasm begun so ardently has not abated; 
to-day the Clio society stands shoulder to shoulder besides the 
other societies, and year after year in its history is repeated in 
fitting records and honors won. 

Now as she approaches her eighteenth birthday, she proudly 
looks back on a life of earnest endeavor and pure character. 
May the future years bring to her increasing joy and success!

About the year 1881, shortly after the Ladies' Annex was 
moved into the frame building it used to occupy, several young 
ladies decided to organize a literary society. 

The name first chosen was "Eutopian." This was sug- 
gested by Dr. Sanders as a very appropriate name for the or- 
ganization, but some of our charter members tell us that the 
change to "Alethean" was made because the young gentlemen 
at college found the first name hard to remember. 

Since the organization of our society, the Annex has been 
moved from the original frame building and now occupies a large 
stone building at a convenient distance from the University. 

With the growth of the school has also been the society's 
growth and progress, and in 1885 it was decided by some of its 
members that a little emulation would forward interest in society 
work. A new society was organized and took for its name 
"Clio," and since that time the two organizations have worked 

hand in hand for the forwarding of literary taste among the 

The fourth floor of our building contains, besides the elocu- 
tion hall and gymnasium, the two society halls. These are de- 
voted solely to the use of the two literary societies. The Ale- 
theans have furnished their hall handsomely, and its book cases 
are filled with over 300 volumes of standard literature. Dona- 
tions to this collection have been received from our friends all 
over Texas. 

The magazine published by the four literary societies of the 
University, shows every month the literary abilities of the Ale- 
theans, and in the honors received each year, our society always 
has its full share. 

Throughout the state are scattered our ex-members, and 
go where you will, you may find a graduate of Southwestern 
proud to own that she is an Alethean.

Listen, listen to our cry, 




When the University was first organized, it was open to boys 
alone, and only a few took advantage of this great opportunity 
for enlightening their minds. The scarcity of numbers was an 
annoying problem to the faculty, and so to ease their minds they 
appointed Prof. C. C. Cody to solve it. He, multiplying exper- 
ience by his own feeling, and dividing by old fogyism, found the 
result to be the Annex. Accordingly this was built, and as the 
University guaranteed the degree of M. R. S., (Mrs.) to every 
young lady who attended, it was soon filled to overflowing. 
The result was all that could be desired. The boys came; the 
Profs, got the money; the girls got the boys. The course leading 
to the desired degree consisted of studying the art of architec- 

ture — especially of halls — and the habits of man as represented 
by the faculty. As an incentive to learning, the professors were 
careful to prepare a system of marks with which to reward the 
most efficient in their studies. 

The Annex is a magnificent building with the mo°t up-to-date 
of culinary departments, and the latest style of horseless car- 
riages. Here are taught under competent teachers courses in 
chatterology, primpology and boyology, special courses being 
also offered in slangology and cuttology. Thus, for about a 
score of years the inmates have pursued diligently the quiet 
tenor (also bass and baritone) , in their way. And we, its well- 
wishers, hope and pray it will ever endure.

A is for Annex, that stately abode, 
Which is the subject of this truthful ode. 

B is for Bell, that wakes us from slumber 

And calls us to duties that are without number. 

C is for College, aye, one of our joys, 
Where each one goes to look at the boys. 

13 is for Doctor, who prescribes for our ills 
And faithfully gives us toast, water and pills. 

E is for Early, that time of the day 
The Annex girls rise, but never for play. 

F is for Faculty, so wise and stern; 

But if they were otherwise we never would learn. 

(J is for Gate, and the Prep boys delight 
To tie it up tight, when we are out at night. 

H is for Ha^h, that habitual dish 

That the management thinks is the one thing we wish. 

I is for idleness, the quality of drone 
That to us is utterly, entirely unknown. 

J is for June, when we have the spring fever, 
And tired of the Annex, we simply leave 'er. 

K is for Kitchen, where we joyfully stay 
Till the matron comes in and scares its away. 

L is for Fetters, and better than others 

We enjoy those missives that come from onr brothers. 

M is for Marriage, the object of each, 

The ambition of some that are here to teach. 

iM is for Noise, which for the president's sake 
The Annex girls would never dare to make. 

is for Orchard, with its fruit always green, 

Which makes the girls cautious for fear of being seen. 

P is for Pony, which we all know about, 

But as we never use them we '11 just leave them out. 

Q is for Quiet Hour, which we always detest; 
At that time of all others we don't like to rest. 

B is for Receptions, our greatest delight, 
But we don't have them as often as we might. 

S is for Smith, so stately and tall, 

And on the top of his head he 's entirely bald. 

T is for Teachers, and the number is many, 
But 'we 'd have more fun if we didn't have any. 

FT is for Uniforms, so stylish and blue, 

We wear them continually and fuss when we do. 

V is for Vacation, now drawing near. 
To us the most pleasant time of the year. 

W is for Wagonette, yellow and black. 

That takes Preps to school but don't bring them back. 

X, Y and Z is the end of our school. 
When we '11 be free from every rule. 

-May Bice. 



(A dialogue by two old maids. Miss Julia Green, a neat, 
prim little soul, lives in a cottage in the suburbs of Philadel- 
phia. Miss Mamie Hill, who would be more aptly called a 
bachelor maid, is paying Philadelphia a professional visit. 
Miss Green is discovered, bustling about putting her small 
sitting-room in readiness to receive her old college chum, 
Miss Hill.) 

Miss Green — "I was so glad to meet Mamie yesterday. 
She is the first one of the old girls I have met in years. The 
dear old Annex! I never thought while I was there that I 
should ever long for its trials and tribulations and even the 
horrid demerits. (She sits down and takes up knitting.) I 
do hope Maine will come soon. Seeing her has brought so 
many thoughts of old times that I just must have her to talk 
them over. Here she comes. I 'm so glad you have come. 
Take off your hat and let's get all cozy and comfortable and 
talk. I can't tell you how really glad 1 am — " 

Miss Hill — "Nbr I — I haven't seen any of the girls in so 
long that I had almost forgotten old Southwestern, but since 
I saw you 1 have thought of nothing else, and I 've just been 
dying to talk to you." 

Miss Green (laughs heartily) — "' 'Just dying.' How fa- 
miliar that sounds." 

Miss H. — "Well, really, I have been just dying for the 
first time in years." 

Miss G. — "So you have never married?" 

Miss H. — "jSTo; nor you, I see. I decided to show the 

world that a girl could be an old maid from choice, but I 'm 
afraid 1 have failed in that purpose, for my dear friends have 
sympathized with me so tenderly and each told her neighbor 
that she just knew Mamie Hill would flirt until she got left. 
So you see f didn't get much credit for choosing to be 
an independent" spinster, after all. But let's talk about 

Miss G. — "Well, let 's sit like we used to at school when 
we were very confidential and told each other everything." 

Miss Hill (As she takes the footstool and sits at Julia's 
feet with her head in her lap) — "Oh! 1 must tell you 1 ran 
across an old Sou'wester a few days ago, the '03-'04 number, 
when Pay, Abies and Lengthy Brown were the heroes of the 
day. Don't you remember ? Weren't those games fine ?" 

Miss G. — ''Yes. and you remember we had the San Jack 
reception Thanksgiving night that year " 

Miss H.— "Yes, and that's where I met Charley— Oh ! 
yes, we had it bad after that. Wasn't his frat pin a beauty?" 

Miss G. — "Yes, it was a dear. And I have a note he 
wrote you. You know you let me have one for my memory 
book. I got out that old memory book last night. It was 
way in the bottom of an. old trunk." (Picks up an old scrap- 
book from table.) "Wasn't it funny? He thought you liked 
him !" 

Miss H. — "Oh! that would be taken for granted. A boy 
only had to breathe Georgetown air a month to learn that to 
have an An-x girl was a requirement which must be met be- 


foi lie could pass from Prep. In his second month he 
lean I that there were more girls than one, and made the 
brillian discovery that a man of his ability could run several, 
and every girl who glanced toward him was necessarily cast- 
ing longing glances on his shrine. After this discovery he 
was hopeless." 

Miss G. — "You certainly are right. They carried their 
heads so high to impress us with their knowledge of man's su- 
perior ability that they didn't perceive that our small heads 
were also busy. Well, here 's my memory book!" 

Miss II. — ''()]i, this first page! Here's a picture of the 
Old Varsity! Doesn't it look queer? Yo campus at all. and 
here is that funny old Chapel and Prep building. Oh! do 
you remember how enthusiastically we believed in old South- 
western? How wo dreamed dreams and saw visions — " 

Miss Cf. — "Yes, and built science-halls and gymnasiums 
and bought all the land between the An-x and Prep for 
campus ?" 

Miss II. — "Well, I'm glad to say that they were reason- 
able visions after all, for they have certainly been more than 
fulfilled. Well, let 's turn over." 

Miss H.— "Oh ! stop. Here 's the catechism. Will you 
ever forget it? Yo boy ever came to the An-x his first time 
without saying it." 

Miss G. — "I'll warrant I can say it now. 'Beg pardon — 
er — I didn't understand your name?'''' 

Miss II. — "'Do you like the An-x?'" 

Miss G. — "'I guess you like the chaperone?'" 

Miss H. — " 'Is Pi'of. Smith very hard on you ?' "' 

Miss G. — " 'Are you an Alethean or Clio ?' v 

Miss H. — "'You'll be an Alamo, though, won't you?'" 

Miss G.— " '! know you 11 be a Barb.' " 

Miss H — " 'Do they let you have sweethearts up here?' '' 

Miss G. — Oh, I knew we could say it! But — oh, look 
here! Tin's is the night I cut practice — " 

Miss II. — "And we had the midnight feast — '' 
Miss G. — "And Miss Sellers caught us — " 
Miss II. — "Things were right lively that night. I wasn't 
bored at all. Rather interesting, in fact." 

Mis* G. — "And oh! here's about our first frat meeting!" 
Miss H. — "Oh, that initiation!" (Both laugh.) 
Mi>s G. — "Well, we certainly had a time." (Stiffens up 
suddenly.) "Did you hear me? Really, I talk and laugh as 
if 1 were sixteen! Those phrases conic back to me as natu- 
rally as if 1 used them every day." 

Miss H. — "To me, too ; I feel like saying something is the 
'worst ever,' and ordering somebody 'hack to the jungles.' ' : 

Miss G. — "Feel like you 're 'onto this little world,' don't 
you ?" 

Miss H. — "Yes, that's about it. but 1 think it has done 
me good, for really, I have given up society life lately alto- 
gether, and have been devoting myself entirely to my work 
until 1 had about forgotten I had ever dodged profs and cut 
classes." (Listlessly turns a few more pages.) 

Miss G. — "(di. stop! There is that kodak view of Mr. 
Tarver in that short overcoat! He didn't know we took it. 
I wonder what has become of him, anyway." 

Miss H. — "Oh, don't you know? Why, I saw him when 
I was in Texas last. Well, we thought he was tall at col- 
lege, but girl, he 's grown twice as high, and he 's doing stunts 
at the Dallas Fair as the absolutely tallest man in the world." 
Miss G. — "You reallv don't say so! I don't see how he 
could have grown any taller — but oh! I'll never forget 
Lengthy Thomas!" 

Miss II. — "We had our share of Lengthys, didn't we?" 
Miss G. — "I should think so, but I never dreamed of 


his marrying Leola David — Poor Alf Folsom! He was the 
worst left boy I ever saw; I couldn't blame him, though. We 
were all simply stunned. Wonder if he ever recovered." 

Miss H. — "Oh, goodness, yes! Why, that very next year 
he decided it had been her little sister Pearle all the time." 

Mis< G. — "Sure enough. I see some of those awfully 
funny breaks of Elva Jenkins here. Of course she and 
Charley Ray married." 

Miss H. — "Of course they didn't. Did you ever see a 
case like that get married? But Greer Taylor and Elize did. 
They didn't even wait to grad." 

Miss G. — "I certainly had a good time at this old grad. 
reception that year." (Points out souvenir.) 

Miss H. — "You seemed to. That was the year you were 
a junior, and old Bess Davis was a grad. Where is she 
anyhow ?" 

Miss G. — "Why, she is in New York. She has now some 
reputation as an artist. Her pen and ink is fine. You re- 
member she began by making Gibson heads on sofa pillows 
at college. She and Hal Browne are still Platonic friends." 

Miss H. — 'Tie is in New York, isn't he? And what be- 
came of Tom Pierce and Albert Sanders? You know, I giies.?, 
that Gordon Wilcox is preaching in Arkansas? Is known as 
the "Sam Jones of Arkansas." 

Miss G. (Laughs.)— "No, I didn't know that, The ri- 
diculous idea — but they say Charley Bounds is a fine 

Miss H.— "Well, I should never have thought it!" 

Miss G. — "But you asked me about Tom Pierce. I have 

just turned to his name here. Why, he hadn't been out of 
school two years before he married." 

Miss H.— "Torn Pierce?" 

Miss G. — "Yes, ma'am, Tom Pierce." 

Miss 11. — "Well, I might have known it. Did he marry 
a nice girl ?" 

Miss G. — "Nice girl! Well, I should say so. He mar- 
ried Ruby Lawrence!" 

Miss H.— "He did? Well, I had never heard of it. 1 
am simply lost to Texas." 

Miss' G.— "Well, let's turn on." 

Miss H. — "I declare you have something about every one. 
Here 's a reminder of Ireland Craves and George Aldredge. 
They are both in Chicago now, and here is that piece of old 
Julia Streety's dress that she tore jumping out of the kitchen 
window that night wc stole the milk." 

Miss G. — "Isn't that funny? But say, there's one thing 
I should like to know. What ever became of Will. Nelms ?" 

Miss H. — "Oh, he died — an old bachelor, of course." 

Miss G. — "How funny! And Barney Holman turned out 
to be 'high society.' " 

Miss H. — "But of all the men wo knew. Mr. Crawford 
has won. the greatest prestige. His love-sick sonnets won 
him fame after all. I think he 's indebted to the An-x girls 
for letting him practice on them. Look here! On this last 
page is a programme of the Clio Open Session, and oh! here 
is that old toast of yours "To Texas.'" 

Miss G. — "Well, don't read it. The metre isn't as good 
as it was then. Let 's have tea." 

— Bell Shands. 



It was on a dark night that I, an undergraduate, was re- 
turning from — well, no matter where — when I saw a sight that 
caused my hair to stand on end (though some people do cast 
slurs on my foot ball map), my knees to knock together, and 
my blood to curdle in my veins. 

From out of the University building came the form of the 
heathen Pluto, clothed in lurid light, while around the corner 
came Moses, with his halo set on crooked in his hurry. And, 
crouched in agony under the shadow of the building, I, perforce, 
had to listen to their diabolical dialogue, which ran as follows: 

(Pluto) : Well, Moses, old boy, it's been a long burning 
since we last met! Shake! (After a hearty greeting) : Now, 
what was it you wanted with me. Saint Stephen said you 
seemed to lie pressing about this meeting. 

(Moses) : Yes, I just wanted to consult you about these 
grads — that is, which you were to have and which were to fall 
to my share. You know the faculty decided that you and I were 
to divide them between us. 

(Pluto): Very well, old man! Let's abide by our old 
agreement. You take the ones that pass in Ganot, and I '11 
take the ones that don't. I always believe in being generous. 
(Aside): Short-sighted old idiot! He doesn't see that I get 
the most of them. Strikes me that hades is getting full at the 
expense of heaven ! 

(Moses) : You are indeed generous, friend Pluto. Now I 

have great hopes that all of them will pass. I hope so ! Yes, 
I hope so ! They seem to be very bright young men and women. 

(Pluto) : You think so? Well, let's take them one at a 
time and discuss them and see. First, those two girls — why, it 
has been prophesied in the third verse of the first chapter of the 
Chronicles by King Bob that noi girl will ever pass in Ganot 
except by the direct intervention of Divine Providence. And 
they are not exactly the kind of girls that Divine Providence 
associates with ; they are entirely too worldly. One of them is 
much too interested in an earthly physician to merit- the care of 
the Heavenly One. 

(Moses) : Well ! Well ! Perhaps you are right ! But it 's 
a pity ! They are such pretty girls ! 

(Pluto) : But there's the first honor grad. I 'm sure you 
will get him. He devours books at such a rate that when he 
dies, his skin will all be parchment and his bones all paper; and 
that will make him so light that it will be easy for him to float 
up. Why, man, don't look so down in the mouth about those 
two girls ! I have hundreds of prettier ones down at my place. 

(Moses) : Pluto, don't lie so personal! Don't you know I 
am a married man? By the way, there is one of those grads 
that you may yearn for, but you will never get him. I have 
had my eye on him for some time. Now don't look unconscious 
(giving Pluto a hearty slap on the shoulder with his right wing) ; 
you know who it is. 


(Pluto) : I presume you mean that little black-eyed scala- 
wag of a K. A. Not him ! He is too much interested in the 
Junior Class. He would make a fine Junior, though, for you 
know "Where the heart is, there is the mind also." 

(Moses) : I never would have believed it if you had not 
told me so. But you may have him. Anybody that could pre- 
fer the Junior Class to the Senior doesn't belong in heaven. 
What do you think of that Browne-eyed chap that struts like he 
was monarch of the seven heavens ? I 've forgotten his name. 

(Pluto) : I know whom you mean. I will get him undoubt- 
edly. He thinks he is going to be President here and leader 
of the angel choir hereafter. He is — he 's going to be President 
of the Amalgamated Gas and Soap Bubble Company here, and 
Leader of the Angel Choir with Belial and Beelzebub as first bass 
and baritone hereafter. 

(Moses) : Well, I know I don't want anybody like that 
around me. But 1 'm sure I '11 get that big, quiet "lengthy" 
fellow. Aren't you ? 

(Pluto) : Why, Moses, my friend, I 'm astonished at your 
want of forethought ! Don't you know there isn't room for him 
in. heaven ? He never could stretch out for a comfortable nap 
without having to have the pearly gates opened for him to stick 
his feet out of. 

(Moses): That's so! That 's so ! I never thought of it. 
Well, now, that's too bad, because he is a real good boy. But 
what do you think about Barney? 

(Pluto, grinning demoniacally) : 1 must admit that he is 
a whole man, at least; but I must also say that he seems to lie 
lacking in fraternal love. Why, if he were to go to heaven, be 
would try to break up the "Holy Brotherhood of Seraphim and 
Cherubim" itself. 

(Moses): All right: just as you say! But what are we 
going to do with the president. I should like to have him. 

(Pluto) : No! No! You must remember that I got sev- 
eral of the class last year, and now I see I am to get most of 
the rest. I shall have to have the president or else they will be 
like "sheep without a shepherd." 

(Moses) : Ah! don't worry, Pluto. You will get Folsom, 
and he would be sure to boss anyhow. (After counting up) : 
Pluto, you sinner, you have about got them all. It's too bad 
(if you to do me that way. 

(Pluto) : Don't feel bad, old man ! Better luck next time, 
maybe! Come on and we will have something to cement the 

And the strange pair of friends went off arm in arm to cel- 
ebrate the occasion. An hour later, when I had controlled my 
trembling limbs enough to get home, I met them going down 
the street, Moses playing a tune on Pluto's horns, borrowed in 
lieu of bones, and singing, "Let the grads do the work, do the 
work, do the work, and the Profs make them flunk!" and Pluto, 
with Moses' halo on the hack of bis head, dancing a hornpipe 
around the sociable saint. 




Tennyson ! thou weaver of sad melodies, 

Whence came thy power to wail a burial hymn or frame a. song 

of love ? 
In the long ages past, 'ere sin and sorrow came to this fair world, 
And men were gods and women good and fair, and angels walked 

with men, 
Didst not thy soul then dwell in frame of some grand master 

bard of eld, 
Who thrilled the soul of men with joy, and, oftentimes, with 

longings to lie better than they were, 
Caused them to look into the future where they saw the fire and 

smoke of many battles, 
The coming of sorrow and despair? 

And thou hast heard the sorrowing wail of centuries yet to come. 
Was't then thou struck thy harp and sung of coming weariness 

and woe? 
master poet! thou hast felt the anguish of a broken heart, 
And thou hast wept upon Death's gloomy bier: 
Writing as thou hast known and suffered; 
We, thy readers, sorrowing with thee, understand. 

— Annie 0. Taylor. 

Here 's to our State with its broad rolling prairies ; 

With the singing of birds and the fragrance of flowers; 

With the sighing of winds and the lowing cattle; 

Where the buffalo roamed ere the noise of the battle, 

When our grandsires their dread shackles wrenched from their 

Whence the Mexican fled in ignoble defeat; 
Where spring blossoms of peace from the Alamo's gore ; 
Where the Lone Star of Texas keeps watch evermore. 

May the minds of thy sons be as broad as thy plains; 

May their hands ne'er lie bound by accursed sin's chains ; 

May thy daughters be fair, and so pure and so good 

That of each may be said, "She hath done what she could." 

May thy pages of hist'ry, unsullied and bright, 

Be records of justice, allegiance to right. 

May prosperity reign and all join in thy praise, 

As the sands of the sea, be thy numberless days. 

— Cornelia Wyse. 



Sherwood was hard at work on a sentence in Livy when 
Winfrey, his room-mate, came in at an unusually late hour. 
As Winfrey approached, Sherwood looked tip and was sur- 
prised to see Frank looking so jaded and pale. Frank imme- 
diately drew a chair up to the table, saying as he did so, "Will, 
I am going to quit this mischief-making, saying cuss words, 
cutting prayer-meeting, church and Sunday school and be a 
better boy. When I left home mother told me to read the 
Bible above all other books, and 1 don't believe I have read 
but one chapter, outside of_ getting up a lesson for 'Mc,' 
since I came here. I am going to read some to-night." 

"I am glad to hear you make so noble a resolution, Frank, 
and I hope yon will stand nobly by it. I have noticed, with 
no little uneasiness, the way you have been doing of late, and 
I thought once of talking to yon about it. but I decided 1 
would Mail a while, and now I am much gratified to hea? 
yon talk this way, and of your own accord, too." 

With this the conversation ceased. Will resumed his 
studying while Frank turned the leaves of his Bible nervously 
here and there. But directly the leaves ceased to rattle and 
Will supposed Frank was reading, when a loud nasal sound 
was heard at regular intervals, and Will knew then that 
Frank was snoring over his Bible. 

"Well, his resolution began and ended at about the same 
time," thought Will, as he lifted his head to look at his room- 
mate. "But J won't disturb him until 1 get ready to go to 
bed. Wonder if Frank will do like he did once before when 
he went to sleep over his book. Just as likely as not lie will. 
1 'II let him sleep." 

Winfrey went on with his snoring and Sherwood with 
his work until be was startled from his deep absorption in 
Livy by a sound like some one running, ami at about the same 
instant an excited call, though not distinct, "Look out, Wil- 
liams, there comes 'Sleepy.'" Tben followed more and quicker 
shuffling of the feet, a mischievous chuckle, then a laugh of 
glee, which must have been caused by something Williams 
had said, and all was quiet again. 

"Those fellows have been 1 ibarding the Mess Hall 

again with fire work's," thought Sherwood, as he leaned back 
in his chair and laughed with pleased satisfaction. "Wonder 
what will come out next," mused Sherwood, as he sat study- 
ing Frank's face, which then possessed an expression of a 
peaceful slumberer. But it suddenly changed to one as op- 
posite as rest is to suffering. The eye-lids began to rise, 
and as they did so the eye-balls rolled back, showing the 
whites, which gave to his pale face a frightful aspect. The 


mouth, somewhat drawn, began to twitch and his body to 
convulse, seemingly, trying to become smaller. 

Just then Howard came up the stairs, and as he faced 
the door, Sherwood motioned him to come in, at the same 
time placing a ringer on his lips. Howard tip-toed in and sat 
down on part of the chair Sherwood occupied. 

"What on earth is the matter with Winfrey?'" asked 
Howard, as lie looked at Winfrey's face. 

"Why, lie's dreaming," whispered Sherwood, "be right 

'"-My gracious! he looks like he might be dead, or rather 
caught in some horrible place where bis life is being crushed 
out little by little. He must be dreaming something awful." 

"Evidently be is," whispered Sherwood. 

"Let 's wake him up," whispered Howard. 

"No, you be quiet; he'll talk some presently." 

"I don't believe I have ever seen an expression of such 
intense suffering,'' whispered Howard. 

"Neither have I, Howard," returned Sherwood. 

At that moment Winfrey turned his head, and his face, now 
in the dark, being turned from them could not be seen. But 
not long after a peal of laughter so hearty and real broke 
forth, that Sherwood and Howard unconsciously joined in. 

"What a medley of fright and fun!" whispered Howard, 
whose interest was now deepening, "I wonder what will come 
next ?'' 

"There isn't much telling," whispered Sherwood, "but 
let 's be quiet." 

Again Winfrey began to snore, but occasionally moving 
his lips as though be would speak. Sherwood and Howard 
left their chair and bent over Winfrey, that the slightest 
wbisper might not be lost. But this developed into a chew- 

ing motion with an occasional opening of the mouth as it 
to take in food. 'I'll is went on only a short time when Win- 
frey mumbled, "Ampk — mighty ample," at the same time an 
expression of pleased satisfaction playing over his face. To 
the great surprise of Sherwood and Howard, Winfrey then 
pitched head first upon the floor. 

No sooner had be struck the floor than he leaped to his 
feet, and hearing the loud "ha! ha!" of Sherwood and Howard 
he at once recognized what a fix he was in, and an expres- 
sion of chagrin came over his face, a red flush followed, and 
he began to undress, saying as he did so, "Sherwood, why 
didn't you wake me up?" Instantly they were around him, 
laughing and making all sorts of threats if he didn't tell them 
what he had been dreaming. 

"Fellows, I don't remember what I was dreaming," said 
Winfrey, departing somewhat from the truth. 

"Don't tell us anything like that," said Sherwood. 

"Perhaps if we should turn him over the foot of the bed- 
stead here and take off five or six yards of rind he would 
remember," said Harper, who. hearing the noise, had just 
come in to see what was up. 

Winfrey joined in the laugh which followed, but when 
they began to carry him towards the bed he decided it would 
be more pleasant to tell, so he began to negotiate. 

Winfrey had been dreaming things he would not have 
had those fellows know for anything, and suspecting they 
knew more than he would like for them to know, be decided 
that before telling anything he would find out what they 

"Well, fellows, how did I act and what did I say? Per- 
haps if you give me a start I can recall what I was dream- 
ing," said Winfrey. 


"One thing you did was to shuffle your feet just like some- 
one running, and you said, 'Look out, there comes "Sleepy"!' " 
said Sherwood. 

"Well, fellows, it was the funniest thing I ever saw. 
Several of us had been exploding fire-crackers around the 
Mess Hall with very little effect, seemingly, so we decided to 
arouse the natives, and to do this we were tying an extra 
large cannon cracker on the blind of 'Sleepy's' window when 
we heard some one walking down the porch in his stocking 
feet, but thinking we could light it before he could reach us, 
we tarried. But just then 'Sleepy' appeared around the cor- 
ner and we tore out, 'Sleepy' after us. I did not take time 
to look around, but Williams, who had, said as we ran, 'Carter, 
I wish you would look at "Sleepy" by moonlight, he is out 
in his full dress night clothes.' " 

When all had laughed heartily, Sherwood referred to the 
expression of pain that had come over his face. 

"Guess that was when I went before the faculty. Some 
of the other fellows had gone in, and I dreamed it was now 
my time, and I never was so badly frightened in my life be- 
fore. My knees trembled in spite of all I could do. A cold 
chill ran up my back and sat clown on the top of my head. 
Cold drops of sweat ran down my face and filled my shoes. 
My hands were terribly large and always in the way. I tried 
to talk when spoken to, but I couldn't. I was so cold that 
my vocal organs wouldn't work." 

"Well, what you laughing so heartily about so soon 
after?" asked Howard. 

Winfrey laughed deep and heartily and then resumed 
narrating bis dream. 

"Fellows, it was real funny and comical, too. Dada sat 
at the end of one of the tables looking wise, but otherwise 

simple. I was soon attracted by a noise like the clashing of 
pigeons' wings when fighting. I looked over in his direction 
and at first I couldn't make out what it was, but 1 guess as 1 
got warmer my vision cleared and 1 laughed right out loud 
when I saw flies scuffling to see which should slide down Prof. 
Smith's head next. And they seemed to enjoy it so much, 
too." All joined in the laugh that followed, which was re- 
newed by Howard, who asked : "Did any of them slip up ?" 

"They were doing a little of everything; some were turn- 
ing hand-springs, others somersaults, sliding off on their 
backs, heads, hands and legs," replied Winfrey. 

"Well, fellows, I 'm going to bed," said Winfrey. 

"Oh! no, you are not," replied Harper, taking hold of 
Winfrey's arm. 

"Tell us why you jumped out of the chair and we '11 let 
you off," said Howard. 

"And while you are at it just tell us what you were chew- 
ing on and where you got it," put in Sherwood. 

"But, fellows, just look what time it is, half-past twelve," 
persisted Winfrey. 

"Oh! come, Winfrey, don't keep us waiting over such 
trifles: if there was a turkey roast somewhere and you thought 
you could get one without being caught you would be right 
in for going even now," said Harper. 

"Yes, and you would eat more of the turkey than flu; 
next one, too," said Winfrey. 

"Let 's have the rest of that dream, and eat oysters at my 
expense Monday. You can sleep Sunday," said Howard. 

This was some encouragement, and Winfrey began. 

"Well, fellows, I was just living over in my sleep what 
took- place some time ago, about which you have doubtless 
heard before now, and hence, it will be old and uninteresting 
to you." 


"That doesn't make any difference ; let's have it," said 

"Yes. let's have it," repeated Sherwood and Howard. 

"As well as 1 remember, it was the night before last 
Thanksgiving Day. And what makes it so ridiculous as a 
dream is, that 1 had an entirely different set of boys with me 
— C. C Young, L. B. Newberry, J. N". Vincent, E. T. Camp- 
bell and several other good preacher boys." 

Here Winfrey gave the fellows time to get through laugh- 
ing, and then continued. 

"We deeided we would have a swell time at the Alcove. 
Young, I believe, who hoarded at Mr. Sneed's, said there 
were some fine large turkeys roosting in an appropriate place, 
and that it would be easy work to secure a nice fat gobbler. 
And so it was. 

"While the savory odor from the baking turkey made 
the mouths of the fellows standing around the Alcove fairly 
water, we went in quest of cake. The Annex was rather dis- 
tant, Ian we decided that after all il was the most accessible. 
so we set out, and arrived at about midnight. A very quiet 
reception was accorded us, for the stillness of the angelic 
place was broken only by an occasional snore from the fourth 
floor. But we didn't take offense at this, in the least. 

"By removing a screen from one of the dining-room win- 
dows we very quietly effected an entrance, but finding only 
some knives, forks, spoons and napkin rings we appropriated 
an individual set for our several use, and as a memento of the 
occasion. Prom here we made our way to the pantry, bent 
on finding the cake. Here we found the desired article. Fel- 
lows, they were ample. Since I had always been espeeially 
fond of cocoanut cake. ! lifted the one of my choice off the 
shelf, while Vincent grabbed a large banana cake. 

"While we were lingering outside extending congratula- 

tions to one another, we were scared speechless for the mo- 
ment by the sudden and noisy approach of the big dog they 
keep tip there. He was so near to us that we had no time 
to lose, and we didn't lose any. A race took place down that 
driveway that for interest and evenness would rival the chariot 
race of Ben Hur's time. Fences were no impediment in our 
flight, and after clearing the fence, it seemed that I would 
never strike the earth again, and when I did I struck it 

"Did you have the cakes when the dust cleared away?" 
inquired Sherwood. 

"Why, certainly, you don't think we were going to give 
them to that dog, do you ?" 

"Well, I didn't think you would give them to him very 
formally," said Sherwood. 

"Go on, Winfrey," requested Harper. 

"Those cakes were too good to keep long, so we decided 
we would sample them before taking them to the Alcove. 
After trying all the windows on the south and west sides of 
flic university building, we found one unlocked on the east 
side, through which wo entered Prof. Tinsley's recitation- 
room. Here we bad an initiatory feast. Campbell proposed 
that we invite Prof. Tinsley's skeleton to enjoy the least with 
us, and followed the proposal up with a rather informal re- 
quest for him to come forth. No amount of coaxing, how- 
ever, would induce that ex-gentleman to join us, and think- 
ing probably that our familiarity had wounded the gentle- 
man's reserve and dignity, we sent Newberry in person with 
our cards and best wishes, and a formal request for him to 
join us. By the aid of our ambassador, he made his appear- 
ance. He begged to be excused, however, when offered some 
of the cake, and although he didn't say anything, we plainly 
saw that on account of being confined so closely he had lost 


his appetite. Of course, under the conditions, we accepted 
his excuse, but agreed that before morning lie should have a 
good airing. 

"After taking on a good supply of cake we tried all the 
doors, but all were locked, and the only way into the univer- 
sity building was through the transom. This was rather a 
steep and difficult way out, seemingly, but we got Mr. Skel- 
eton through this one into the physical laboratory so easily. 
that we considered our purpose in a manner perfected. How- 
ever, before we reached the tower-room we climbed through 
four transoms, taking Mr. Skeleton along with us. He didn't 
complain, however, of being jaded in the least, although we 
did. Perhaps I was jumping from one of those transoms 
when 1 jumped out of my chair. 

"Lowering one of the tower windows, Newberry, some- 
what of a cowboy, lassoed one of the four steeples on the 
tower, and drew the noose up taut. Fastening the other end 
to the wire Mr. Skeleton wears in the top of his head, every- 
thing was pronounced ready. 

"After a cordial hand-shake and a general proffering of 
good wishes and pleasant dreams we gave Mr. Skeleton to 
the midwinter night's breezes and made our way back over 
two transoms." 

While the other fellows continued to ask questions, Win- 
frey undressed and crawled in bed, leaving the fellows to 
wonder how much was dream and how much facts.

Here's to the students of dear old Southwestern; 

Here's to the Juniors, the Freshmen and Sophs; 
Here 's to the health and the wealth of the Seniors ; 

And here 's to the luck of the sober-faced Profs. 
Here 's to our books — hut to-day we '11 forget them, 

And through the bright realms of fancy we '11 rove, 
Forgetful of sorrow, of sighs and vexations, 

We'll drink to St. Valentine — toast to true love! 

Here 's to the Annex — those sweet, charming lasses, 

Here 's to the smiles which no heart can withstand ; 
Here 's to the lads who always yield to them 

All the devotion their souls can command. 
Here 's to the grand old Star — State of Texas ! 

Long may she shine like a star from above; 
Here's to the fame of our world-honored nation; 

Here 's to St. Valentine ! Here 's to true love ! 

— Omega. 

Alas, poor Fresh ! we 've sung his doom. 

Where, flowers grow, no weed can bloom. 

He 's mocked the Grads, though grand and tall, 

And now must suffer for it all. 

He 's lingered by the college gate, 

Waiting for the Seniors that were late. 

Many and sad are the tales they told 

Of the way they were treated by the Freshman bold. 

One told of how one Saturday night 

He and some Freshies had a fight. 

And he came home in a terrible plight. 

His eyes were black, his nose was broke. 

And angry were the words he spoke. 

He vowed dire vengeance on them all, 

Each Freshie big, ugly or small. 

And many of the Grads said the same, 

And of poor Freshie did complain; 

And some night they '11 lie in wait 

For him, beside the college gate. 

Ah! sad indeed will lie his plight 

When the Grads leave him alone that night.

The following story of the life of Joe was given me by 
his owner, Tom Mclntosle, one cold night in February, while 
we were sitting before a crackling log fire in our camps: 

"I found him one frosty morning lying under the edge 
of my front door-steps; he had not been here long, for his 
eyes were not open. How he came there I never knew, for 
there was no sign of a bed, no straw, no rags, nothing that 
would have led me to believe that his mammy had bedded 
there. Nevertheless, there he was; and his whining had at- 
tracted me to him. I took him into the house; the cook gave 
him some milk and his crying ceased. 

"Tims his early life began. He seemed to be a pointer, 
mixed with the blood of a setter, for he sat a great deal. Of 
all the dogs I have ever seen — and they have not been a 
few — he was the most unlike his kind. He would rush in 
frantic terror from all other dogs, no matter what might be 
the disposition — for this he would never wait to' find out; and 
he would seem free of alarm only when he was snug in his 
box. I tried to account for this in many ways, but never 
found a satisfactory explanation, unless it be that by the un- 
known manner of his coming into the world he had been com- 
pletely alienated from the canine family. One day, while yet 

he was a little puppy, I saw him lying in the grass, where 
the sun had made it warm, taking a nap ; when suddenly a 
large New Foundland dog came along in front of the fence, 
barking ferociously. Joe was roused by the noise, and when 
he saw where it came from the little fellow seemed almost 
paralyzed with fear. At first he did not move, but, upon 
seeing that the fence was between himself and the yellow 
monster, he broke for the house with all the speed of which 
his chubby little legs were capable, all the time giving a ter- 
rified yelp. 

"He showed, early in his life, a striking disposition to 
love us. My little sister Laura was then a child of seven, and 
the puppy seemed especially fond of her. He would try to 
follow her to school, and a pitiful whining would tell us when 
she had closed the gate in his face and left him. He would 
come back to the house, lie down in his bed, and actually cry. 

"In this manner he grew up; and as he grew older his 
dread of all other dogs seemed to increase, as did his attach- 
ment to our family. 

"He was, I say, different from all others of his kind; the 
kindness we had shown him seemed to have almost changed 
his nature. I had, in fact, about decided that Joe would 


never be a real dog, that irnlikeness to his germs would con- 
tinue to grow until he should lose every characteristic of a 

"About this time Darwin's book on the 'Origin and Evo- 
lution of the Species" Eel] into my hands; I read it with great 
interest, but at once denounce'd his theory, so far as human- 
ity is concerned. But then I thought of my dog. doe; 'Surely,' 
said I. 'this dog does seem to have lost nearly all the qual- 
ities of a brute.' I concluded to watch Joe and study Darwin. 
The dog continued, by his association with us, to become 
more ami more like us. His instinct seemed to he no longer 
his only means of discovery. By the time he was three years 
old In had almost ceased to do things from natural impulse. 
Sometimes I would see him while at play — for I watched 
him now very closely — suddenly stop his frolicking and stalk 
slowly around the house, as if in deep meditation; perhaps 
he would keep this walking up for an hour, and not even the 
coaxing of little Laura could urge him to play again. His 
instinct did in reality seem to lie giving way wholly to a higher 
faculty. He began more and more to act as from choice, and 
not as by an unalterable law. which would require him to 
do the same thing in the same way every time. 

'"'When he was four years old he seemed as surely gov- 
erned by reason as man. All fierceness had left him, and he 
was as seldom out of sorts as the little girl who was his con- 

stant conpanion; love seemed to all appearances the ruling 

"You can imagine how deeply interested 1 was at this 
time in the development. And I determined to give him a 
final test, which I felt he was now — if ever to lie — able to 
stand, and which. 1 thought, would fie conclusive proof of his 
change from instinct to the fullest intelligence; from the act- 
ing and actuated beast to the thinking and directing creature. 
One day in company with another man, who had become in- 
terested, 1 took doe to the woods. Marvelous transformation! 
Never was a theory more completely overthrown by a prac- 
tical experiment. Joe had not been in the woods two weeks 
before he acted as much like other dogs as though he had 
never known otherwise. He began to scent trails, and a covey 
of quail seemed to reveal to him his real nature, for he 
showed that the true hunter spirit, the spirit that makes a 
brute delight to kill and eat, was alive and dominant with- 
in him. 

"Yes, doc was easily trained and has made, in a short time, 
the splendid hunter we have followed with so much pleasure 
and success to-day. 

"Away with Mr. Darwin's idea! for 1 tell you man never 
came to his present power, his possession of a soul, through 
the development of a beast." 

—W. A. Twrver. 





Across the hall on floor three, 

A pair of lovers stroll ; 
They whisper words in accents low, 

Like twilight's distant toll. 

The}' pause midway between the stairs, 

And lean against the wall ; 
They vow their hearts shall ne'er part, 

Though all the heavens fall. 

The students pass them to and fro, 

But never them annoy ; 
They care not for the busy throng, 

They are each other's joy. 

The hall is now as still as death, 
No sound of footsteps near; 

The time has come for them alone, 
To show their love so dear. 


The lad looks in those eyes so blue, 
And takes the tiny hand; 

He gently draws her to his breast, 
They thus together stand. 

Across the hall on floor three, 

A "Hebrew" slowly steals; 
But ere too late, without debate, 

The lovers take to heels. 

The bell has rung, the work begun, 

On a new lecture hour ; 
They "cut," for now to separate 

Is far beyond their power. 

Now, lads and lassies, hear these words, 

A truth keep well in mind: 
"Where'er you go, whate'er you do, 

A Jew you '11 always find."

We hail Ihcm rounding up cattle all morning, and had gath- 
ered several hundred head in the big corrals. It was nearly 
dinner-time, and as it was in Augnsi and the sky was cloudless, 
the weather was not as pleasant as it might have been. 

Al\ brother Jim, a chap of sixteen, and I. together with a 
negro boy id' fourteen or fifteen, were urging the last four head 
of cattle into the corrals. The men had gone a few minutes 
before t^i open the gates that led to water. The last cow had 
almost gone in the gate, and dim and Ted had dismounted 1" 
idosc ami holt it. when a young steer, that had been giving us 
trouble all morning because of his fractions and warlike dis- 
position, bolted outside and made a hreak for the open. I rode 
after him and succeeded in roping him. hut could not drive or 
drag him hark, lie would set his four stout Legs, and it would 
have taken a Mogul engine to move him. So I called to my 
aid Jim and Ted; one got his rope and the other a stick, and 
they commenced; and lor a little while nothing much hut an 
immense tangle of dust, hair, hide, hoofs, hats and yells could 
he seen. After some fifteen minutes of hard Labor, the year- 
ling was persuaded to come nearly to the gate. Then he made 
another break; my pony braced himself, hut when the rope's 
end was reached the steer didn't stop — the rope parted. 

Finding himself free, the pugnacious nature of the steer 
re-asserted itself, and lie charged the first thing he saw, which 
happened to he Jim. And .Tim, in turn, ran for the first thing 
he saw. which happened to lie a large feed-trough; and the alac- 
rity with which he crossed the intervening twenty yards would 
have been a wonder for him under any other circumstance?. 
When he disappeared beneath it, the yearling turned and 
charged the next thing he saw. which happened to he Ted. 

Ted was standing twenty or thirty yards away, laughing at 
Jim. He was dressed in a blue shirt and a pair of old gray 
trousers that ended their dirty career half-way between his knees 
and feet, and which were big enough for two the size of Ted; 
and his black kinky hair was hidden by a cheap straw hat, with 
a brim six or eight inches wide. 

When Ted saw that steer start at him, his broad smile van- 
ished instantly, and terror seized him. His eyes opened till they 
looked like two fried eggs. Ted hesitated lint a second; then 
reached up, pulled off that hat and from the way he left the 
most skeptical would have been convinced that he had urgent 
business in other parts. His nearest refuge was a wing of the 
corral fifty or sixty yards away, so Ted headed that way. When 
he had run about ten yards, he glanced over his shoulder at his 


gaining pursuer; then, if anything since creation fanned fire 
out of the breeze, that nigger did. One yell that would have 
done credit to a Comanche Indian escaped him — thus he saved 
all his steam for locomotion. And locomotion it was; with his 
arms and legs going, he looked like an immense egg-beater, and 
the way he covered ground would have made an Arizona jack- 
rabbit ashamed of himself. 

I '11 never forget the picture of that scared nigger, dressed 
like a circus clown, with that yearling going after him like an 
avalanche, head down, tail up and raising a cloud of dust. I 

don't think Ted touched the ground enough to raise any dust. 
Then came the grand finale: Ted's getting through the 
fence; he didn't take time to climb over or crawl through, hut 
just threw himself forward with his hands in front, like a boy 
diving, flattened out and went through like an arrow. Nobody 
but a scared nigger could have accomplished that feat. He got 
up, vowing in the strongest language he knew that we could put 
that steer up if we wanted to. hut he "wuz goin" to let dat fool 
steer alon'." L. F. Chapman.

The long ago, Ah ! with what ties it holds us yet. 

Our hearts grow sad, thinking of days long fled; 

Days that will tread no more the weary ways of life. 

Sweet dead days ! With folded hands they rest in peace, 

Entombed forever in the treasured past. 

Oft do we tread in thought the picture gallery of the past 

And behold loved forms, silent in the still embrace of Death : 

The noble son, near to Fame's white throne, 

The smiling babe upon its mother's arm. 

The gray-haired fathei', calm and almost home; 

And as I wander in the shadowy realms of fancy, 

Through the misty vale of the long ago, I see a face, 

King among men, how like some warrior knight of old, 

An angel lent us from the realms above 

To gladden human hearts for a few brief years.

A nodding Prep sat late one night, 
The lamplight flickered low : 

He dreamed he had his lessons up — 
Not one he didn't know. 

He dreamed that in Arithmetic 
He cut the Prof a "10"; 

The way he f ought that spelling-book- 
It really was a sin. 

And when it came Geography 
(This was a great big class), 

He cut a solid "100," 

While no one else could pass. 

And then be dreamed a year had gone : 
He wore a Freshman's cap; 

His lessons were no trouble now — 
Each study was a snap. 

And through the Soph and Junior years 

He walked with gentle grace. 
And then, joy ! a cap and gown ! 

He held a Senior's place. 

Alas ! the dream came to an end : 

When 'chanting sleep was over, 
He did not have his lessons up — 

Too late to study more. 

And as he shuffled off to bed, 
With feelings all confused, 
He breathed a sigh and shed a tear, 

As to himself he mused: 

"The lessons is so awful hard, 

My health is breaking down; 
I think I '11 write to Maw and Paw, 

To let me leave this town." 

(Sleep and snores.) — Guzzle. 



After that little scare a few years ago at Salem, it has been 
almost universally understood that there are no such things as 
witches and ha'nts. So far has this impression gone that any- 
one who now declares that he saw anything in the shape of an 
old, ugly woman riding through the air on a broom-stick is said 
to be superstitious. For anyone to entertain the idea that there 
are such occurrences as men passing directly through stone walls 
where there are no openings, or entering rooms through the key- 
holes of the doors, is to immediately convince the public that 
he is just a little oil' in the top-story. This opinion against 
ha'nts and ghosts has reached that point now where public opin- 
ion is directly opposed to the belief in anything that cannot be 
explained. People do not believe that anything exists when 
they cannot see any explanation of it. 

Now, I tried not to believe in ha'nts, although I confess 
that I am just a little afraid at night when all alone and the 
wind seems to mourn about the corners of the house, and occa- 
sionally a dog barks in the distance, and something seems to 
walk on the ceiling of the room. These things all have their 
influence upon a living sold, but I never was quite convinced 
that ha'nts really did exist until I came to this school. 

One time the big bell in the Prep building tolled all night 
and kept everybody in town awake, and even Prof. Moore, than 
whom no one's nerves are more steady and no one less supersti- 

tious, was unable to explain this singular occurrence after he 
had "taken into consideration all the possibilites of the case." 
Prof. Smith, a man of dauntless courage, says that there are 
many and various disturbances at the Annex. Sometimes it 
seems that the very doors are being sawed away, but when he 
investigates, not a thing is harmed and no one is seen about. 
But just as soon as he lies down again, the awful sounds begin 
anew. We know he is not a superstitious man. And this can 
not be anybody, for it usually occurs at a very late hour when 
everybody, even the first honor man, has gone to rest. 

Now on Hallowe'en night — the time, bye the way, for all 
ha'nts and ghosts to make their raids — there was a general dis- 
turbance in the town as well as in the school. The bridges all 
over the bad places in the sidewalks were overturned. The bell- 
rope was cut, and that, too, high up in the belfry where no man 
would dare to go even in broad daylight, and besides the build- 
ing was securely locked. A buggy was found next morning on 
top of a building. All tins and many more curious and mys- 
terious things occurred — and it is a singular fact that it was 
all done on Hallowe'en night. 

Not long since, the chapel was opened and the school 
marched in for prayers, and there stood the skeleton of a man 
with the Bible opened at the last chapter of Eevelation. The 
building had been securely closed and this skeleton A\ r as locked 


up in the Chemical Laboratory, and more still, the chape] was 
closed. So a person would have been compelled to go directly 
through a stone wall, or at least to creep through the keyhole, 
in order to enter. 

Now. it is certain that nothing but a ha'nt could have done 
this, and besides, if it had been any one of the students, the 
faculty would have caught up -with them. Thai must have been 
t he work of a ha'nl. 

On Christinas (light there was the sound of a terrible bom- 
bardment heard in the direction of the Mess Hall. People were 
alarmed. Prof. Moore, showing his usual coiirage, took up his 
shotgun and stepped out in the direction from which the dead- 
ening sounds had come, lie claims that he saw misty, ghost- 
like forms Hitting before him in the darkness. Now he, being 
somewhat of a footman, undertook to catch up with the Jloatin^ 
figures, but they seemed to maintain about the same distance in 
the lead. All through the race the fierce bombardment was kept 

tip. II is rumored, though there was no timekeeper, that in 
tin's race the fastest time was made that has ever been made on 
that old campus. Finally, Prof. Moore saw that he could not 
overtake them, and so, rather than be outdone, lie fired directly 
at them, hut to no effect. He fired again with just as fruitless 
results. The small report of his shotgun was quite unheard 
amid the thunder tones of that strange bombardment. He quit 
tlie scene and returned to his room, fatigued and discouraged. 
Being a very practical man, he argues till this day that they 
were not ha'nts, hut it is whispered around among the more 
superstitious that these were real ha'nts. 

There are many such occurrences hen', hut these are quite 
enough to convince rational folks that there are ha'nts — real 
ha'nts. It is thought that nearly all the faculty believe that 
there is a ha'nt prowling around here, hut of course they will 
not admit it outside of their own private faculty meetings.

Kiss us gently, Time, to-night, 
While the river bears us on. 

While oui- hearts are gay and light, 
And night wakens into morn. 

Blight not our young lives so soon, 
While our eves with gladness glow. 

While our souls are all atune, 
Let. the river gently flow. 

Let us drift on hand in hand, 
Down the river's broad expanse, 

Till we reach the golden stand. 
Where the sunbeams always dance. 

Shadow not our lives so bright, 
With the gloom of sudden fears. 

Kiss us gently, Time, to-night, 

And brighten all the coming years.

(Dedicated to the Annex Girls.) 

Ah, tattered paper! how the years 
Come gliding back at sight of thee: 

I see that smile again through tears 
I would not have the world to see, 

And pride and time divides us. 

The azure brow, the kindling eye, 
The flowing locks again I see ! 

I see the hand that traced these lines— 
A hand of one beloved by me, 

And never shall he mine. 

dearest hand! shall not again 
Thy soft weight rest in mine. 

As when we hade a last farewell, 
In the glowing summertime, 

And I was left alone? 

scrawling lines, how many more 
That hand has written me! 

Her eyes have rested on this page — 
Eyes which I ne'er again may see 
Till death is hers — and mine. 

1 scanned those lines with throbbing heart, 
A smiling vista caught my eye; 

I fondly dreamed she loved me — when 

We meet again beneath that clear sky. 
Perhaps she '11 love me then ! 

Ah, vain, delusive dreams of youth! 

Who knows the coming bitter part 
Of waking, after dreams like this? 

The withered flowers of the heart 
Ne'er make a crown of bliss.

He was a fine typo of the proverbial cowboy, slow and easy 
in his motions; his indifference approaching carelessness; of 
course, long and lanky ; speaking in the proverbial drawl and 
slang — in fact, about the only thing that distinguished him 
from the ordinary cowboy was a certain glint in his clear blue 
eyes, that bespoke a remarkable amount of cleverness. 

For nearly ten days we two had been working together on 
the plains of a large Arizona ranch. Sitting beside a brush 
fire, we were lazily enjoying that very pleasant feeling directly 
following a hard day's work and a good supper. As I lay on 
my back watching the light of his cigarette kindle and die, I 
dreamily wondered if he had a history. Overhead, the myriads 
of stars lent enchantment to my thoughts, and then, in order 
to make the whole scene perfectly romantic, a distant whip- 
poor-will now and again raised its plaintive cry to join the sound 
made by the tethered horses. What better circumstances could 
better foster a good story? 

I was suddenly waked from my reverie by a low chuckle 
from my partner. Finally, breaking into a quiet laugh, he rose 
from his reclining posture to relight his cigarette. Again the 
low laugh — and I knew a good story was forthcoming. After 
assuring himself of perfect confidence on my part, he again in- 

dulged in his chuckle, which in cowboy vernacular meant that 
sometime he had "skinned" somebody in some transaction. 

My interest was by this time keyed up to a very high pitch, 
so I was glad, hut surprised, when he said: ''You never had 
the Rangers after you, have you?" On my telling him that I 
had never had that pleasure, he continued in language which 
for the sake of decency and the reader's comfort, I will not try 
to reproduce. 

"Well, young 'un, I guess I have — Texas Rangers, too." 
Further meditation, a rough clearing of his throat, and he was 
launched into his story. "Young 'un, don't you ever get them 
Texas Rangers after you just for fun — no, siree — 'cause it 's 
no fun after you get started." 

It seems as if in his palmiest days he had punched cattle 
in Texas for an old fellow by the name of Tatum, in company 
with his younger brother Rob. A year passed, and they had 
saved only a few dollars. These they invested in calves and put 
them in with Tatum's. Here, it seemed, was where trouble 
began. Tatum's brand wasoA, and theirs 94. One day, while 
looking at a little o a steer, our friend noticed how easy o a 
could be turned into 94 with a few artistic touches of a red-hot 
poker. Of course brands are put on rather carelessly and — well, 


Bob and Jake's little herd increased steadily thereafter. Occa- 
sionally one would slip over to the adjoining ranch, and more 
calves bore the 94 brand. 

The truth is, Bob and Jake had developed into cattle ex- 
perts, as he termed it; cattle thieves, as Westerners call them, 
and were doing business on a large scale. 

Most probably they got careless, for old man Tatum began 
to "smell" something, and often wandered around the pasture 
on pretense of buying them out. Others also suspected them, 
but as nothing definite was known nothing was said, although 
once or twice an angry ranchman had insinuated to them that 
their herd was increasing rather peculiarly. 

The brothers saw that their game was about played, so they 
decided to sell at once and break camp for parts unknown. The 
day after they sold out, a man stopped and "registered" with 
them for the night. On putting up his saddle, he dropped a 
letter from one of the saddle-bags. Jake handed it to him, but 

not until he had noticed the address: " , 

care Texas Bangers at Uvalde, Texas." Of course nothing was 
said .by either concerning it. Anyhow, Jake, suspecting that 
Mr. Banger was not enjoying his hospitality for hospitality's 
sake alone, immediately, on a pretense of looking after the 
horses, saddled and was gone. Bob remained till the guest was 
asleep, and also decamped — tint in the opposite direction. 

As Jake supposed, the Banger was there to guard the broth- 
ers until the rest of the Bangers could arrive. Early the next 
morning four well-armed Bangers were sent out to capture the 
two cattle-thieves. They had never seen the brothers, but were 
to be met by a man of Tatum's, who would conduct them to 
the proper place. All this Jake guessed and planned for. The 
rest I will tell you in his own words : 

"Hu ! they were on Jake's trail, were they ? Well, I 'lowed 

as if they wanted to see Jake in the near future, they'd have 
to get up afore breakfast. So T stopped at old Bill Moreland's 
shack, borrowed his razzer and swiped another suit of clothes 
from Bill's oldest boy. And pshaw ! why, you wouldn't a 
knowed Jake, no siree. So they were on Jake's trail — but, son, 
you've heard that little proverb about eatchin' a rarebit afore 
you broil him, hain't you? Well, so far they were only trailing 
Jake. Next morning I was gone early — a-riding one of Bill's 
blood horses, bound for Uvalde. I would sell my nag — I mean 
Bill's — and embark for San'tone. T was about eight miles out 
when 1 saw four men a-gallopin' towards me. I knowed at once 

as they were Bangers. What must I do? Great, good 

, I couldn't outrun them — no, I didn't have time. Any- 

how, 1 had a blamed hit more confidence in my old noggin and 
speechifyin' apparatus 'u in that little mare's legs, so I trots up 
and says, kinder anxious-like: •Hey, there! are you all Ban- 
gers? Well, old Tatum sent me after you to tell you fellers 
as the kids arc about to leave, so I came to show you a short 
cut. Come on.' And they were in my rear, the whole bunch, 
a-whippin' and a-spunin' their little old plugs like as if the 
whole Apache Irisquawl delegation was in their 'n. 

"Now, pardner, I thinks a whole darn sight of my noodle, 
and its thinkin' capacities, so I says to myself, 'Jake, you 
crooked-lookin' countenance, you get that there thinkin' ma- 
chinery of yourn awful busy right now," and busy it got, too. 
Sorter urged on by visions of Jake boxed up and travelin' to 
Uvalde feet foremost, and also of Jake actin' as carry-all for 
all the lead in that gang behind me, young feller, I did 
some thinkin' — \ did some thinkin', I tell you. An idea! 
I would lead them up by Batesville and set them on that low- 
down old dog, Joe Spence. I 'd get even with him for turnin'" 
Jake Durham off! Thank the Lord they did not know the way. 


No, sirs, we would not stop for dinner, the feller might get 
away. So murnblin' to myself, I led them rapidly flown the 
El Paso road — my heart in my mouth and eyes hangin' down 
agin my nose. Suppose they should catch on! Oh, my - — ! 
More visions of Jake in a condition not exactly fit for market. 
They kept exchangin' secret remarks and scowl in* at me. Were 
they recognizin' me? It made mo so mad I got right white 
around the gills. N~o, they were not on. 

"1 laughed as \ thought we were somewhere about thirty- 
live miles from Tatum's by then, and still travelin', b'gosh! 
And tli. ink the good Lord, it was growin' dark. Terreckly I 
reined up my noble steed, covered with enough foam to lill a 
barn, and told them the hill in front was old Tatum's. He 
lived in the little house beyond the grove of mesquite trees, and 
the thieves lived in thai little shack below — -Toe Spence's, you 

"I suggested that one man he kept at the crossin', another 
al the big gate, while 1 would go around by a. secret path and 
watch the other gate. (One old codger suggested that he would 
go and demand surrender.) The other two could go up and 
demand surrender. Yes, he was there, for I could see the light. 
After more talk and directions, all was agreed upon, and we 
were gone. 

"As soon as I was out o' sight around the hill, I .agreed 

agin, roped a stray cayuse branded J. S., and was gone. In 
thirty minutes I was going over a hill eight miles away, and 
still a-runnin'. 

''Then I began to think of the four Rangers back there 
capturin' Jake, the horse-thief. Were they still a-sittin' 'roun' 
in the chaparral, or were they by that time deprivin' some home 
of a family man? 1 was just gettin' over my scare enough to 
laugh at them, when I heard somebody a-ridin' fast behind me. 
It was too dark to see who it was, but I didn't take any chances. 
I pushed on them reins, and you orter a' seen that old bone-yard 
o' Joe's do the mile a minute trick for about fifteen minutes.** 
He stopped to relight a cigarette, and, after a few puffs, con- 
tinued. "Well, 1 ate dinner in Laredo next day, where I heard 
that the Rangers had been called out to capture a noted horse- 
thief, hut for some reason or other a quiet old settler had been 
'taken in' instead, much to his discomfiture — man, it did me 
proud to read that — and furthermore, a human meteor had 
passed Eagle Pass, recognized as the younger brother, at a gait 
that soon put him up near Tombstone." 

Then, with another long, low, final chuckle, which showed 
that Jake was thoroughly pleased with Jake's prowess, be 
wrapped his saddle blanket around him. and soon the possessor 
of the finest vocabulary of "cuss"-words I had ever heard was 
punching doggies and yearlings in his sleep.

Babbling Bess. 

Linguistic Leola. 

Continually-talking Cornelia. 

Bob Stone — a rich young photographer. 

Mr. X. — a dealer in hooks. 

Sid — flunkey to Boh Stone. 

Act I. — Scene I. 

Scene — Stone's Studio — a nicely furnished room. Stone is 
seated at desk writing. Sid is putting coal on fire. 

Enter "Talking Club" in body — rather gay. 

All together — 0! Mr. Stone, we want our picture took. 
We want the swellest thing you have, you know. 
Laura — Yes, dead swell. 
Cornelia — And cheap. 

Bell — The real thing, you know. 
Leola — Something that Alf will like. 

Stone — Well, I have some mounts for $18 that . 

Girls (in horrified screams) — Oh! terrible! 
Bell— Let's go. 

Bess — Don't he think he 's cute. 
Laura — I believe I 'm fainting. 
Leola. — How I wish Alf was here. 
Cornelia — Skin game! 

Stone (condescendingly) — Oh, 1 have some nice mounts 
like this. 1 will make you six for $4.50. 

(They retire to hold a council of war.) 

Bell — Oh, girls, I have an idea! (Bess knocks.) I saw 
some nice pieces of cardboard at X.'s the other day. Let 's 
buy them and put them on ourselves. 

All— Good idea! ! ! ! 

Cornelia — Bah for slow coach! 

Laura — Bright kid, that. 

(They return to "jew" Mr. Stone.) 


Mr. Stone (rather incensed) — Why, certainly; yes, I will 
make six prints for $3.50, and yon can put them on any- 
thing you want. (Aside.) Cram them down your throats if 
you want to. 

(Exit "Talking Club" with much talk.) 

Sid— ! ! ? ? They make me 

tired. This ain't a racket store. 


Act II. — Scene I. 
Scene — X.'s book-store. Clerk behind counter, smiling. 

Bell (as spokeslady) — Have you some extra nice picture 
mounts ? 

Mr. X. (hauling out some old cardboard that came as 
packing) — Yes; here is something dead swell. Came in yes- 
terday and almost gone. They were sold for 25 cents but 
(confidentially) 1 '11 let you have six for $1.00 if you won't ■ 

All together— Oh! ! ! ! ! 

Bell— Eobber! 

Bess— Thief ! 

Laura — Pickpocket ! 

Leola — Oh, if Alf was here! 

Cornelia — Old skin flint! 

Mr. X. (recovering from the shock) — Oh, excuse me ; I 
meant to say six for 50 cents. (Aside to Bell.) They cost me 
15 cents straight. 

Bell — Well, let's take them, girls; it's only 10 cents 

After a series of explicit directions to Mr. Stone, during 
which Bess wounds Sid with poker, they journey Annex-ward. 

Bell (figuring) — Three fifty plus fifty is four. Four fifty 
minus four is fifty, and then there are five of us, making ten 
cents apiece. Oh, girls, just think, we have saved ten cents 

Cornelia. — And skinned Mr. X. 

All— Bravo ! Bravo ! Bah ! 

A Silent Man. 



* It 




Those eyes so sparkling, bright and fair, 

Enchant me with their magic spell ; 
They thrill me with their beauty rare, 
To me of love they sweetly tell. 

How oft have they with splendor gleamed 
As softly as the moon's calm rays, 

How brightly they in radiance beamed 
When on them I perchance did gaze! 

A look from thy clear, starry eyes 
Is like, the sky's own glories bright; 

'Tis pleasing as the breeze that sighs 
O'er fields perfumed with lilies white. 

They haunt me in my golden dreams 
Of seraphs wreathed in sunny flowers; 

And, gentle as the gliding streams, 
They cheer for me life's dreary hours. 

— Gube. 

A tiny head nestles against mamma's breast, 

As the sheep come home from the lea, 
I hear voices calling the babies to rest — 

■'Come awa} r . Come over the sun-down sea." 
And the sun sinks low, 
While the south winds blow 
My baby away from the shores of day 
To dreamland, over the sun-down sea. 

So sleep, baby, sleep, in your dreamland home. 

The sheep have all come from the lea, 
And soft sails thy boat, without sound or foam, 
Far away, far away over the sun-down sea. 
Fast fades the light, 
Soon comes the night. 
Sleep, mother is near. There 's nothing to fear 
In dreamland, over the sun-down sea. 

— Bobt. E. Goodrich.

Y name as you have heard, is The Sou'wester. For the past six months my breezes 
have been blowing upon the Southwestern souls, hoping thereby to fan and fire their famed 
flax seed, in order that the efforts of their pens, and the beauties of their dear selves, 
might be so brought together, as to demonstrate to even the most doubtful of Thomases 
that I am, indeed, a strong gale from the Southwest. 

The collection has been made, the result has been seen in the foregoing pages. Judge the 
weight and worth of the concentrated mass, and you will then, in some measure, be able to form an 
opinion of my influence anil power. 

Be it said, some souls have been obedient and prompt in responding to my ardent wooings, others 
have stoutly and stubbornly refused every entreaty, while another class, after being repeatedly re- 
minded of my needs, have aided nobly in this important work. 

But now to one and all — professors, students, alumni, alumnae, friend, and foes, if such there 
be, I bid you an affectionate farewell for 1903- '04, however, promising that with the return of the 
next session, I shall be promptly on hand with added equipment for another strong, steady blow. 

Yours for business, 

The Sou'wester.
