To Dr. Charles Caspari, Jr. 

As an expression of our appreciation of his fidelity 
to the interests of the University of Maryland, 
this, the first volume of Terra Mariae, is dedicated 



INSTITUTIONS, however proud or creditable, and ijrotVssioiis, however learned or honorable, 
may be personified in their abler re])resentatives. Fortunate, indeed, is the representative 
who has become conspicuous enough to fitly do such service ; equally fortunate is the institu- 
tion or profession that can claim one who, in his personality, represents the best for which either 

The dedication of this volume to the Dean of the School of Pharmacy seeks to, at once, 
kindly recoi^iiize the new department of the University, pay graceful tribute to I'harmacy, and 
feelingly homir its chief expimt-iit in Maryland, if not in- this country. 

Caspari is a name long and creditably associated with jiharmacy in Germany, and the elder 
American representative, Charles Caspari, who immigrated to lialtimore in IS 11, quickly became 
the leader of the German pharmaceutical element in this cit\, where i-".dmund Ducatel and his 
pupils had ably represented the French school. This combination of I'Vench and German teach- 
ings gave Baltimore a number of representatives who, early, became peculiarly conspicuous in 
the pharmaceutical world. 

The subject of this sketch. Charles Caspari. Jr., was l)nni in Baltimore, May, 1850. His 
primary education was secured in ])rivate schools and liis academic studies were inirsued in the 
Department of .\rts and Sciences of this same old University nf Maryland, during the years 
ISdl to ISG"), when that scln n il was tniiU-r the directinn "f llie kite |)r. I'.. A. Dalrymple. The 
untimely fleath of his father effectually thwarted his well formed intentiims and earnest desire 
to secure a degree from the L'niversity of (lOettingen, from which the elder Cas])ari had gradu- 
ated. This same unfortunate deprivation compelkd him in remain in the drug business which 
he had entered in 1SC5. He graduated from the .Maryland College of I'harmacy in ISCO. and 
engaged in business on his own account in 1871; successfully conducted the pharmacy at the 
corner nf Ikdlinmre and JMemnnt stri'cts inuil Isi'l, wluii he gave uj) business that he might 
devote more time to teaching, having been elected to the h'aculty of the Maryland College of 
I'harmacy in l.S7!i. where he sihiu afterwards instituted one of the first jjliarmaceutical labora- 
tories, for teaching jjurposes. that this country nwns. I 're ifessur Caspari was elected Vice-Presi- 
dent of the .American I'harniaciiuical Association in ISlt.i, and has lieen a most acceptable and effi- 
cient General Secretary of that .Assoeiatinn since IS!t|. as is evidenced by the following, ex- 
tracted from a recent issue of a prduiinent pharniaceutical juin'ual; 

"It is ;dl hut im])ossible to think of the .\merican riiannaceutical .Association with- 
out thinking also of Professor Caspari, the general secretary. The two arc almost in- 
separable. The 1 'rofessor became secretary in ISHl at the Asheville meeting, and any 
pharmacist who has ever attended a convention since, is familiar with his short but wiry 
figure, his quick movements, his incisive and positive manner, his virile strength in de- 
bate, and his ready method of despatching and ex])editing luisiuess. Secretary Ca.spari 
is a bundle of energy, and although he likes a .good story and is fond of social inter- 
course, he has no time to waste with the dawdlers an<l the stragglers who never get any- 

The work for the American Pharmaceutical Association inckides the active editing and pub- 
lication of its annual proceedings, averaging over 1,000 octavo pages per volume. Besides doing 
this stupendous literary work, he has, in the same time, since 1893, been one of the editors of the 
National Dispensatory and has written "A Treatise on Pharmacy," a popular text-book, the third 
edition of which is in preparation. He is one of the most active of the working members of the 
committee authorized to revise the U. S. Pharmacopceia, and. (hiring the last four years, has 
given much of- his time to this very important and exacting work. 

He has an interesting family of four girls and two boys. The elder son. Charles Ivlward, 
graduated from the Johns Hopkins L'niversity and was admitted to tlie degree of Doctor of Phil- 
osophy. b\- that institution in 1!»00, for post-graihiate chemical work done in its laboratory. He 
is now Professor of Chemistry in the St. Louis College of Pharmacv. 

"The Dean," as he is familiarly called by his associates and students, wins popularity, not 
through diplomacy and finesse, but by straightforward, kindly positiveness and tlirough the 
respect that his broad attainments command. 


IN THIS riO(~)K, we. the Hoard of Kditors, in conferenee assembled, present to an apprecia- 
tive public and our admiring friends tlie unofliciai record of tbe doings of the School during 
190.'), now for the first time called "TERRA MAklAK." The name is symbolical of a truly 
united college. "Terra Mariac," .Maryland first, last and all the time; in right or wrong; in pros- 
perity or poverty; in victory or defeat — stand by Old .Maryland, and swear by "Terra Mariae!" 

It is a new book with a new name, and in the seductive words of the circus poster of other 
and better days, "Bigger and hetUr than e\er before." I'i.gger it certainly is; we have added a 
new department to the school. Better? \\ ell, w-e hardly like to say. 

W'l- feel disposed to lake the dear ])nblic and nur friends \\\U> the sacred editorial confi- 
dence in this matter, and instead of the labored and tlnwerv a])oliigetics usuallv found in this place 
to dispense some hard, cold facts. Now. our work being done, is hardly the time to scold and be- 
rate and complain; yet our little fling now may gild the labors ot the next set of iiniocent unfort- 
unates, who attempt to carry on this nionunient;d work. 

.\t the beginning, our idea of the editorial function was an exalted one. We ])ictured our 
uol)le >flve> blue-iienciling and rejecting mauuscrijit with a loriUy and superior air, right and 
left. But the reality! It was daily, manual labor — nothing less — to extract from the various 
departments material enough to cover decently oar three liiindred and staring pages. 

All this however, is done and over with, and the book, such as it is, is finished. It is a won- 
derful work. The wonder is. not that it is not perfect, nor better than it is — but that it is pub- 
lished at all. The uninitiati-d know little and care less about the labor involved in an undertaking 
of this kind; we are initiated — now — and while we have no desire to ajjjjcar otherwise than as 
the modfst and retiring gentlemen we reallv are, wc beg leave to think to our private selves that 
for the work done, all hands deserve great credit. 

"Terra Mariae" is meant to be a record and a remembrance for days to come, of our check- 
ered careers in the old A'arsity — the happiest anil best days, so wq are told, of all our lives. 
Tliis is the function of a college book; this is the essential thing, its raisoii d'etre; when it is ac- 
complished, all else is supertluous. How well we' done tbe our thing needful, we leave to 
tliosc for whom we have done it. to say.

A MAN who is entering upon his career with the natural and laudable hope of reaching therein 
at least a low degree of fame and fortune, needs a stout heart. — and much besides. He 
must have, in the first place, a clear conviction of his fitness for the struggle : possunt 
quia posse vidcntur, is a pithy saying. In the second place, there must be an increasable measure 
of actual fitness ; the man whose self-confidence has no other basis than ignorance, is but as a 
sounding brass. Finally, there must be opportunity ; but opportunity will profit a man nothing 
unless, by systematic and patient training, he keeps himself ready to kick the ball when it shall 

come to his feet. 


* * 

It may very wi.'ll be objected by the candidate for success, that these ideas lack both nov- 
elty and vitalizing power ; and that what he needs is something more definite and practical. How 
may a man acquire a just confidence in himself? In what way can he increase his native capac- 
ity and learn, if not to create, at least to find and recognize opportunity? To such and similar 
questions, I believe that there is but one answer fairly adequate. In the larger sense, these things 
must be self-taught : and the lesson will never be learned until the student has. by a thorough self- 
examination, discovered his own particular limitations and deficiencies. Know Thyself, is a maxirn 
old as Egypt, and we are all ready enough to give it a formal assent ; but in a modern scheme of 
education, the practice of the maxim has but a small place. Lack of mental concentration, and 
of the power to hold on to an idea until you have seen through it : the habit of letting the tongue 
act in advance of the brain : indulgence in slovenly and disjointed speech, — ignoring the rule 
that every sentence, spoken or written, should contain a thought and be aimed as a bullet is aimed 
at a target ; the inability to draw legitimate inferences and to see things in their true proportions ; 
the distrust of your own final conclusions and an exaggerated conformity to prevailing opinion ; a 
shrinking from the downright No — these are failings which we see and deplore, frequently enough 
in others. Not however, until a man has discovered his own deficiencies : and not until self-kni)wl- 
edge has awakened a healthy, and not a morbid, dissatisfaction, will he be in the way of improve- 
ment and likely to command success because he deserves it. 

* * 

We read in Rabelais that his hero. Panurge, had every faculty except reason : and there will 
always be men whom no amount of introspection can improve. The present purpose, however, is 
not to deal with the numerous successors of Panurge. but to give a brief account of an em])eror 
who formed his life upon the principle of daily self-examination : who tried "to learn his true 
self and live it ;" and who found his philosophy sufiicient for the needs of an exciting and tem- 
pestuous career. 

* * 

During tlic Iwiiilx \cars which U)llo\ved the death of Antoninus Pius, A.D. ICl, the rule of 
the vast and uii\vi"ldly Roman Empire was in the hands of Marcus Aurelius Antoninus. Asso- 
ciated with iiini, for a part of the time, was Lucius Verus, who, like Marcus, was an adopted 
son of the laic cniperor. Verus a])i)ears to have been a mere man of jdeasurc, — weak but not vic- 
ious : and he had the good sense to recognize the superiority, and defer to the judgment, of his 
associate. A clear picture of the two men is afforded by the correspondence between them, touch- 
ing a budding conspirator named Cassius, who was at the head of the Roman troops in Asia. 
\'erns wrote : "Keep an eye on iiini ; wli.itever we do dissatisfies him: he takes care to collect 
friends and resources and seeks to make us ridiculous in the eyes of his soldiers by calling you 
a pliilosoi)hizing old woman, and me a dissolute boy and a frequenter of gaming houses." Marcus 
.-\urelius replied: "^'our coni])laints arv wmiliy luitlier of an em])ernr nor of our government. 
If the Cods destine the em])irc for Cassius, we slnll not be able to get rid of him: for you know 
the saying of your grand-father : "No prince ever killed his successor.' If on the other hand. 
Heaven abandons him, he will b;- caught in his own snares without our exhibiting cruelty in en- 
ticing him into them." :ic 

* * 

What then were the ])riiiciple> wliicli. as the em[)enir lliniiglit, ought to govern a man's life? 
We learn them from a little diary, found after his death, — which occurred in the fifty-ninth year 
of his age, and while he was in cam]) near the jir.^sent City i')f Vienna. The book is commonly 
known as the Meditations; it contains reflections jotted down from time to time as occasion of- 
fired: and it is clear from internal evidence, that the entries were made for private use, and not 
with anv view to publication. The teachings are largely those of the Stoic philosophy. — but with a 
difference. The old state religion of Rome, with its ]iantheon (if gods, known and unknown ; with 
its sacrifices and hnriil offerings : — this religion wa> disintegrating, much as dogmatic theologj' is 
tlisappearing to-day. And just as men to-day obs.-rxe outward forms of worship to which they give 
no intellectual assent, so the enijuTor. who was essentially religious, gave formal observance to 
ihe public worshi]). and, at the saini time, was working out his own plan of salvation. It is hard to 
ei)itomize this i)lan : and iirobablv no two r^'aders of the Meditations will agree upon what they see 
in them. In broafl outline, as it seems to me. the lessons, most useful if not most original, are 
these: that a man ought not to perplex hiniself about the future life, because the present order of 
the universe makes it worth while to do ones best. — irres])ective of whether death Ix: an end or a 
beginning: that in every man is a "divine |)art." which can be kejit alive or killed, as the individual 
wills: that the only light which can guide a int'i the way of tnilli. is within him; that nothing 
which befalls a man is really evil unless it injur. s his character, and not merely his rei)utation, 
|)erson, or estate; and therefore a man can be reallv hurl only by himself; that every man can. in a 
true sense, be the master of his fate and the captain of his soul; and that it is a mark of true re- 
ligion, not to say more about God than you really know. 


* * 

The following extracts from the Meditations are taken from the translation of a very emi- 
nent .scholar, the late George Long. The selections have been casually made; but they are suffi- 
cient to show the emperor's view of how a life should be lived, — whether it be a simple life or 
a strenuous one. * 

* * 

"From Maximus, (a Stoic philosopher) I learned self-government, and not to be led aside 
by anything: and cheerfulness in all circumstances, as well as in illness; and a just admixture in 
the moral character of sweetness and dignity, and to do what was set before me without complain- 
ing. I ol)served that ever_\l30(ly believed that he thought as he spoke, and that in all that he did he 
never had any bad intention ; and that he never showed amazement and surprise, and was never 
in a hurry, and never put off doing a thing, nor was perplexed of dejected, nor did he ever laugh 
to disguise his vexation, nor, on th? other hand, was he ever passionate or suspicious. He was 
accustomed to do acts of beneficence, and was ready to forgive, and was free from all falsehood : 
and he presented the appearance of a man who could not be driven from right, rather than of a 
man who had been improved." 

"Begin the morning by saying to thyself, I sliall meet with the busy-body, the ungrateful, 
arrogant, deceitful, envious, unsocial. All these things ha])pen to them b-\' reason of their ignor- 
ance of what is good and evil." 

"Every moment think steadily as a Roman and a man to do what thou hast in hand with per- 
fect and simple dignity, and feeling of affection, and freedom and justice, and to give th\- 
self relief of all other thoughts. And thou wilt giv€ thyself relief if thou doest every act of thv 
life as if it were the last, laying aside all carelessness and passionate aversion from the commands 
of reason, and all hypocrisy and self-love, and discontent with the portion which has been given 

"The soul of man does violence to itself when it allows any act of its own and any move- 
ment to be without an aim, and does anytliing thoughtlessly and without considering what it is, 
it being right that even the smallest things be done with reference to an end." 

"A man should use himself to think of those things only about which if one should suddenly 
ask, W'jiat hast thou now in thy thoughts? with perfect openness thou mightest immediately an- 
swer, "Tliis or That." 

"And further let the Deity which is in thee be the guardian of a living being, manly and of ripe 
age, and engaged in matter political, and a Roman, and a ruler, who has taken his post like a man 
waiting for the signal which summons him from life, and ready to go, ha\'ing neetl neither of oath 
nor of any man's testimony. Be cheerful also, and seek not external help nor the tran(|inllity 
which others give. A man then must stand erect, and not be kept erect by others." 

"Never value anything as profitable to thyself which shall compel tJiee to break thy promise, 
to lose thy self-respect, to hate any man, to suspect, to curse, to act the hyjiocrit, or to desire any- 
thing which needs walls and curtains ; for he who has j^referred to everything else his own intelli- 
gence and daemon and the worship of its excellence, acts no tragic part, does not groan, will not 
need either solitude or much company, and what is chief of all, he will live without either pur- 
suing or flying from (death) ; but whether for a longer or a shorter time he shall have the soul 
enclosed in the body, he cares not at all ; for even if he must depart immediately, he will go as read- 
ily as if he were going to do anything else which can be done with decency and order ; taking care 
of this only all through life, that his thoughts turn not away from anything which belongs to 
an intelligent animal and a member of a civil comnninity." 

"Make for thvself a definition or description of the thing which is presented to thee, so as to 
see distinctly what kind of a thing it is in its substance, in its nudity, in its complete entirety, and 
tell thyself its proper name." 


"If thou workest at that which is before thee. fi>ll(i\viiif,'^ right reason seriously, vigorously, 
calmly, without allowing anything else to distract thee, but keeping thy divine part pure, as if 
thou shouldst be bound to give it back immediately ; if thou boldest to this expecting nothing, 
fearing nothing, but satisfied with thy present activity, according to nature, and witli heroic truth 
in every word and sound which tliou utterest, thou wilt live happy. And there is no man who is 
able to prevent this." 

"Remember Antoninus Pius, and his efforts to understand things ; and how he would never 
let anything pass without having first most carefully examined it and clearly understood it." 

'■'riiat w liicli does nf>t make a man worse than he was, also does not make his life worse." 

"Look within. \\ itliiu is the fountain of good and it will ever bubble up if thou wilt ever 

"It is thy duty to order thy life well in every single act ; and if every act does its duty as far 
as possible, be content : and no one is able to hinder thee so that each act shall not do its duty." 

"Practice thyself even in the things which thou despairest of accomplishing, for even the left 
hand wliicli is ineffectual for all other things for want of practice, holds the bridle more effcct- 

iiali\- than tlie right hand : fur it has been practicrd in this." 

"EitluT tlure is a fatal necessity and invincible order, or a kind providence, or a confusion 
without a purpose, and without a director. If then there is an invincible necessity, why dost 
thou resist? I'.ut if there is a providence which allows itself to be propitiated, make thyself worthy 
of the help <>f the divinity. P)Ut if there is a confusion without a governor, be content that in such 
a tempest thou hast in thyself a certain ruling intelligence. And even if the tempest carry thee 
awMy. let it carry away the poor flesh, the poor breath, everything else; for the intelligence at least 
it will not carry away." 

".Man thou hast been a citizen in this great state, the world; what difference does it make to 
thee whether for five years or three? For that which is conformable to the laws is just for all. 
Where is the hardship then if no tyrant nor yet an unjust judge sends thee away from the state, 
but nature, who brought thee into it? The same as if a praetor, who has employed an actor dis- 
misses him from the stage — 'But I have not finished the five acts, but only three of them' — Thou 
sayest well, but in life the three acts are the whole drama; for what shall be a complete drama 
is determined 1)\ him who was once the cause of its composition, and now of its dissolution; but 
thou art the cause of neitlur. Depart then satisfied, for he also who releases thee is satisfied." 


It would be unjust to the author of the Meditations to forget that they arc the innermost 
thoughts of a man who made no pretension to ]ierfection ; who was describing his aspirations 
rather than his attaimnents ; and who, amid ])erplexitics and perils, such as few of us will be 
called upon to encounter, never turned the back upfui his ideals. The lessons of self-examination, 
self-control and self-reliance and self-reverence, which the Meditations breathe, are not easy to 
practice : but the mere effort will, at least, enalile a man to keep his face in the right direction. .\nd 
this, after all, is the main thing. "For," quoting again the words of the Translator, "a man's 


qTcatiicss lies not in wealth and station, as the vulsjar believe, nor yet in his intellectual capacity, 
which is often associated with the meanest moral character, the most abject servility to those in 
high places, and arrogance to tlie poor and lowly : but a man"s true greatness lies in the con- 
sciousness of an honest pur])ose in life, founded on a just estimate of himself and evervthing else, 
on frequent self-examinafion, and a steady obedience to the rule which he knows to be right, 
without troubling himself, as the emperor says lie should not, about what others may think or 
sav, or whether thev do or do not do that which he thinks and savs and does."

KIND and expectant reader, 1 as historian (if the Class of IDO.'j, do feel most keenly my in- 
ability to write an interesting history or one abounding in fine diction. No pen of mine 
can e'er reveal to the public and the world at large in such a limited si)ace as the confines 
of this book, the record of such a Class as ours. A Class that has had no superiors and few if any 
equals, and one that is destined to become famous for the men that it contained, some of whom 
will SMiiH- (la\ lia\i' tluir names flashed from tity to city, from state to state, and from country to 
ciiuniry, and hailed as ilu- discoverer of some of the mysteries that now lay liidden in medicine, 
and by so doing immortalize our Class and our dear old Alma Mater. 

You I know will agree with me that it would be much more interesting to write the history 
of each man separately, but that would recpiire M'lunKs and a .MacauK-\. t"onsct|uently 1 am 
compelled to treat the Class as a conglomerate body, and become personal only when necessity 
demands it. 

Permit me then to turn ])ackward the wheels of time, and direct your attention to the first 
days of October, 1901, when some of us fresh from the country, with the scent of new mown liay 
on our clothes and oats in our hair and a healthy coat of sun burn on our cheeks, some from the 
white pine forests of the north, others from the land of flowers, from the Cuban shores, from the 
tar pits of the south, and various other |)laci's both at home and abroad, luaking u]) as varied a 
set of animals as went into Noah's ark, had decided to change from iiome comforts to bowery 
hash, and began to assemble from both ends of l.onihanl and Cireene streets. .\s we approached 
we gazed in open-eyed wonder and adnnration at our old school, with its massive pillars, pure 


and white, fashioned after the old pantheon at Rome, and surmonnted by the dome that shut 
out the elements from the immortal Lafayette, when he received his LL.I!., and saw hunches 
of students standing around as we supposed for the express purpose of hazing- us. Nothing hap- 
pened, however, till we matriculated, then -the fun began (for the other fellows). At that time we 
wondered how it was they could tell a Freshman so easily, now we know. For a more nervous 
set of boys was never seen. Afraid to speak to anybody for fear he was a Sophomore, knowing 
not where to go or what to do, and expecting every minute to be our last, we stood around in 
bunches of twos and threes thinking of mother and home until a "Suph" would yell, "There is a 
Freshman," and then we proceeded to faint away. 

One poor little innocent black-haired fellow from Harford County remarked one day, "I just 
tell you what boys, there is no place like home, because you can go into the kitchen there and 
press your pants whenever you want to." Some of us tried to pass for Juniors by having note 
books marked "Obstetrics," "Practice," etc., and assuming a dignified air, but it was no go, for 
we were spotted and in due time rounded up and put through the stunts. As soon as Thursday 
came we attended the Freshmans' clinic and began to get on our sea legs. But Georgie could 
not gaze on the face of Uncle Tim and inhale the fumes of ether without turning over and faint- 
ing, but he was soon revived and ever since has been not only able to face the music, but at the 
time of writing this article bids fair to beconie a renowned surgeon. 

One thing that worried us was holding a Class meeting. When, where and how it was to 
be done no one seemed to know, till Willie and Jimniie, our twins, suggested a plan. So one dark 
night with no lights burning and Perry bribed, we stole in one by one, only to be halted at the 
door by the twins who stood guard and asked for our credentials before we were admitted. When 
the last one had come, the meeting was called to order and noses counted, when it was found 
that about twenty had resolved to do or die, and stood ready to dislocate a Sophomore's man- 
dible if he bothered us. 

After a lot of discussion, interpretation of parliamentary law, etc., temporary officers were 
elected and we adjourned. One of our most oratorical classmates was Helhnan, who in four 
weeks married his landlady, and we have not heard of him since. Whether living or dead doubt- 
less he is visiting his namesake, unless he is a widower. Another was our curly haired treas- 
urer, who committed suicide, but the most of us survived the affair. Some of our officers were 
so popular the next day with the "Sophs" that they were called on for speeches and given a free 
ride. Then our indignation began to rise and we attempted to inform our oppressors as politely 
as the occasion permitted that they would have .to stop, when the first thing we knew, they de- 
cided to give us all a ride but foimd they had calculated on too much. During the scrimmage, 
Jimmie, one of the twins, turned himself into a mowing machine and the opera chairs suft'ered. 

Things quieted down in a few days and we settled down to work, and dry work it was. Still 
with Johnnie Turner showing us hundred dollar checks, telling us how to diagnose a breech pre- 
sentation, the functions of the gracilis muscle, about the woman burying her jackass and other 
■ yarns of like character, we managed to worry along. When we were admitted to the dissecting 
room we felt like doctors for sure. We used to swell with pride when we boarded a street car 
and saw the ladies turn up their noses while they whispered to one another, "Pll bet he is a medi- 
cal student." 


It was while working here that the bond of friendship was more securely welded. It was 
here we came to know one another better and to feci the ties that bound us together. Time passed 
swiftly and I too must hurry along. While it was cold we did not mind working on our "stiff." 
For while the winds howled on the outside, and the atmosphere was filled with rain and snow, 
and pedestrians were bumping their glutens maxinuis against the ice covered streets, Bobbie 
would read us extracts from "Reddie's" letter and fall into a reminiscent mood now and then, and 
relate how when he was a boy he would "box" till his fists were as raw as beefsteak, and every 
time he would stop to catch his breath, Knell would ask somebody if they knew little Harry Smith, 
the fellow with curly hair you know, and had a sister named "Jinny." But when the gentle 
zephyr from the south began to be wafted in at the windows, when the grass peeped forth and 
the birds began to sing, that tired feeling came to us that calls for Hood's Sarsaparilla, and we 
longed to escape. So we hurried a little faster, studied a little harder, and soon left John Brown's 
body to moulder in the grave, while we went marching on. During the year a few fell by the 
wayside, but when examinations rolled around, the most of the Class was there to answer to their 
names and to face the ordeal. Of course some failed, but those who were successful were happy 
to know that one mile stone was passed, and we were that much nearer our goal. After they were 
all over we said a hearty farewell all round and departed for our respective homes. So here I 
must ring down the curtain on the first act, because it is not in the province of the historian to 
record things that transpired during the summer. Neither could he do so if he wished to, for who 
can describe the changes which take ])lacc in a man while he is being transformed from a Fresh- 
man into a Sophomore? Suffice it to say that when October rolled around again we were found 
in our places ready for work. We had lost a few members for various reasons, but the loss was 
more than made good by the new men who joined us. Another pair of twins were added to our 
Class. They came from New York, and have remained with us to the end. Fine fellows they are 
and a credit to our Class, both in the classroom and on the gridiron, i cannot take the space to 
name every man who came in. but cannot refrain from saying that at this time "Little Egv])t" was 
added to our list. To know him is to love him, because a kinder hearted lad never lived. .-Mways 
jolly and ready for a "fight," he was fondli-d and petted by us all until he came to fill such a large 
part of our hearts that we find it hard to think of his going away from us so far. And it is the 
desire of the historian that this will ever serve as a remiuder to him that he was beloveil bv all. 
and the best wishes of the entire Class follow him to his far away home; so when his step begins 
to falter and his eyes to grow dim, he can take his little grandchildren on his kme and in the 
translation of these lines they can see their grandfather was a jierfect gentleman, a talented man, 
and cine i>t whom every one is glad to sav, "I knew him." 

.•\s Sophomores we felt tiu- dignity of (jur position and took upon ourselves the duty of teach- 
ing the Freshmen some maimers, and to remind them of tlu' fact that we were "It" with a capital 
I. Poor fellows it did lofik like a sin to bother such an innocent and humble set of children. But 
a few of them were too gay and had to be taken down a buttonhole. Tlv. y didn't seem to know 
that the cry of "a Freshman on the third row" was a sign for the performance to begin, but one 
by one they found out, for after once a fellow has taken a trip on the aerial railway, or has ridden 
on the merry-go-round, he is not likely to forget it. He is content ever afterward to go way back 
and sit down. For a few days we had circuses and concerts galore, and the way they coukl dance 
an<l sing was a caution. Herbert was our most talented artist and he ])ainted them up in fine 


shape ; with striped legs, mustaches and an unspeakable motto on their foreheads, they certainly 
did look stunning. If one failed to swallow his medicine he was strung up till he repented, and 
in this Sydenham was our right hand man. It reminded one of the days out west when Judge 
Lynch sat upon his throne. One day things came to a climax in the anatomical hall when the 
Freshmen showed fight. It was no use though, for before they knew what had happened, we 
pounced down on them and if our corpulent dean had not appeared on the scene, there would not 
have been a Freshman left to tell the tale. As it was he quieted things and incidentally spotted 
Rush. After that there was no further trouble, and we have since been living like David and 
Jonathan. This was an eventful year for us. The chief thing was the visit of Adolph. Adolph, 
you know, was the big man with long whiskers who went around the country pulling legs. Of 
course during a big show like this admission was by ticket only, and if a Sophomore didn't have 
the price he couldn't get in. The price was for a Sophomore not to be a Sophomore (at the Uni- 
versity of Maryland). If he was a "Soph'" somewhere else, all well and good, and if he was an 
Osteopathic crank, or the janitor's wife, he got a whole bunch of tickets so he could take even 
his baby carriage and nursing bottle in. 

Everybody was there except us, we were there but we weren't there, because some policemen 
wanted to get in and we were detailed to keep them out. To everybody else the tickets were free, 
and the dean's door was resplendant with such signs as "Get tickets here free," "Only a few more 
left," and as fast as a Sophomore would come in, several of his friends ( ?) would tell him they 
had their tickets and if he wanted one he had better hurry into the dean's office and get it (in the 
neck), which he according!}- did; but he wnuld take it good natureclly, and take upon himself the 
duty of fooling the next man. The next day was chemistry day, and when R. Dorsey came in we 
gave him an enthusiastic greeting. It certainly was a trying time for him, but he showed the 
man he was by taking it all good naturedly, and although we felt rather sore about the affair we 
tried to forget it, and to-day our dean docs not have more ardent admirers than the Class of 1005. 
Tefft wrote a piece of poetry on the occasion, but the editors concluded it would be a shame to 
bring it out in such a poor book as "Bones, Molars and Briefs," so advised him not to waste such 
good literatue in that manner. 

Examinations were upon us again before we knew it (Anatomy) and we were compelled 
to buck up against the genuine article, for if th?re is anything nicer than Gray's Anatomy we 
have never found it. We loved it so well that we simply studied it all the time, some slept on 
it and I suppose some slept in it, for they had anatomy cribs, and if cribs are not made to sleep 
in what were they made for? Jean said it was a. "cinch," I don't know whether a "cinch" is 
good to eat or not, if it is, several of us got very hungry during vacation, and when the invitation 
came in the fall to come in to the feast, we went in and got some more "cinches." A lot of us 
felt important now because we could take the State Board examination, and here we found still 
more "cinches," for what we told the examiner about milk was enough to turn him into a cream- 
ery. You laugh at the idea, do j^ou? Well, that can be so just as easy as the story of Bill Nye's 
goat. Did you ever hear of him ? 

He got on a rampage one day and among other things ate a fine game rooster, and when they 
milked him the next morning he would give nothing but cock-tails. It is a good thing he was 
not owned by a medical student, for they would have milked him to death. 


Aflor spending our vacation witli "ye old folks at home." and filling our best girls' ears 
full of bugs and trying to impress them with the idea that we knew it all, we returned once more. 
Of one thing we felt proud, Dr. H. K. had gone the way of Johnnie I., and we were happy. But 
alas ! all our joy was turned to sorrow when we missed the face of our beloved professor Francis 
T. Miles. I would that I could pay an adequate tribute to him. but no mortal hand will e'er be 
able to wield the pen that will faithfully jiortray the sterling t|ualities of this good man. I can 
onlv say with the poet. "None knew thee but to love thee, none named the but to praise." 

This year our work was more pleasant and more interesting. Dissecting, anatomy, chem- 
istry, histology, embryology and several other bug-bears were a thing of the past, and we went 
to work with a will. At this time our Class was materially enlarged by several University of 
North Carolina men. Every year she sends us a goodly quota, and our tar heel friends are O. K. 
It has come to be a natural thing for the Junior Class to expect this addition, and is always 
ready with open arms to receive their companions in liiisery. During the first month every one 
was talking on the subject of tuition, and a movement was on foot to pull up stakes and go else- 
where, but some backed water and we staid, paid the extra twenty-five, remained from the 
theatre, and quarreled with our sweethearts so as to get rid of buying American beauties for 
them. Now 'f any of us are sued for breach of promise it will be the fault of the faculty. 

This was no sooner settled than Class politics loomed up, and then we naturally drifted into 
State politics, and the battles for U. S. Senator were fought as fiercely in the Y. M. C. A. room 
as in Annapolis. 

Xcithiiig of importance hapi)ened this year till the end, and then Dr. Neale paralized us. .^t 
the battledore we met our Waterloo. It was a very appropriate name because it is derived from 
batyldoure, which means a bat for beating clothes, and it certainly was the bat that beat the pants 
clear off of us, but it still had a "velementous" appearance. At the beginning we realized the 
gravity of twins and especially a "velemcntousbattledore" pair. We waited for internal rotation 
to take place but our levater ani got exhausted and relaxed and when that takes place you know 
rotation is not likely to occur. I'ddalic version was next tried, but we couldn't get hold of the 
head or tail of it, so that could not be accomplished. Then we tried force (ps), but only found a 
battledore is a battledore. Every method failed and Dr. Neale finally did a decapitation (on us), 
and invited us to come around the followng fall to partake of a dish of Jean's obstetric "cinches." 

During the performance there was "weepiu'^ and wailing and gnashing of teeth" as will be 
.seen by the following api)etidix. which one of the boys tacked on to his little book. "During this 
examination I have neither given nor received any iiiformatinn whatevtr. which, God knows, I 
sadly needed." Any man could have said that, but how many could have said, "I liave neither 
asked nor been asked for any information, etc.?" When we went home this time we went as 
meeker and wiser men, for we began to realize that we knew nothing, and as long as a man feels 
that way there is some hojjc for him. 


In athletics our Class has been very prominent, and has done perhaps more than any other 
one in putting out a good football team. We have furnished Hala, Riha, Mitchell, Revell, Carnal, 
Graham, Gibson, Matthews, and several others, all of whom are excellent players. Graham and 
DeBlois are onr star baseball players but there are other good ones too numerous to mention. A 


basket ball team and track team were organized by Carnal and Hala, and are the strongest in 
the State. After defeating all the local teams they obtained games with numerous strong teams 
elsewhere and came ofif with flying colors. . 

The boys are all back now and we must speak of them as Seniors. Again many new men 
joined us, most of them coming from Jefferson. Miner, with his big pants, Cronshore, with every 
hair in position, Fisher, with his bald head, Felton, with his repartee, and the two love-sick 
swains. Smith and Ellis, made up a sextette of industrious and congenial fellows. Count De\'aney 
from "Thoitv-thoid" street and "Sunny Jim" Dwyer also made a pair never to be forgotten. 
This is the year when we learn to hold crying babies (of course the married members knew this 
before, but we are not all married) and use Credes method. Now we must learn to apply germ 
soap and bichleride, permangate and oxalic to people total strangers to such things. Now we 
karn how to sit on a one-legged stool throughout a cold stormy night in a dirty hovel and catch 
cimex lectularius. Here we learn to carry out an asipsis more perfect than is possible in the 
best equipped operating room. This is the year when we go to bed and have just begun to 
dream of our sweethearts, when with a start y<iu awake to hear Dr. Zepp trying to kick your door 
down. That settles it, you must go. 

One of the most exciting periods was a week or two before the election. Teddy and Alton 
were ignored and forgotten. It was not "Whose a democrat," but "\\'hat is the latest political 
news ?" Every man was besieged by friends of each candidate and the whole situation was ex- 
])lained to him, the direful results of the other man's election were painted in black on a back- 
ground of ruin, lost prestige and humiliation, and to help the good work along he was given a 
pocketful of tickets to hand to his constituents. As time wore on and the election drew near, 
the house men became warmed up so that a sign had to be posted, declaring positively that no 
electioneering was to be allowed between that point and the poles. Harford County seemed to 
develop quite a number of politicians, Bobby and Harry taking the lead, and when they go 
home, I tremble for the Hon. Fred. Talbott'f; prestige as a leader. On November 2, at 8 P. M. 
we all assembled in the anatomical hall to cast our ballots for our favorite candidate. Every body 
was there, even Tyson. After awhile the meeting was called to order and everything passed off in 
double-quick time until it came to the election of sergeant-at-arms. There were several men in 
the field but the race narrowed down to "Egypt" and "Bill," and ended by "Bill" winning out by 
a small majority. 

Of course it is a natural sequence that a crowd of men, shut up in a hall heated by furnaces, 
gas and politics would be thirsty, and the newly elected officers knowing such, invited the whole 
Class to "The Cascade" to quench their thirst, where they drank to their hearts content. Some 
got at tables, some in chairs, some stood up and some laid down, some got under the Anheuser- 
Busch, some helped to make iMilwaukee famous, while others yelled G. B. S. (Give Benner Some) 
but Benner said, "Gosmans is strong enough for me." It was the most enthusiastic turnout the 
Class ever knew, and a lot of talent that had been hidden under a bushel became apparent. No- 
body knew before that Jerome would ever make Joe Jefferson look like thirty cents, Spanish 
mone\- with a hole in it, but now noliody doubts it. We are sony but he is bound to forsake medi- 
cine and become the most famous actor the world ever knew. Others turned waiters and the way 
they slung the amber fluid was enough to turn you dizzy. One of the features of the blow-out 
was the singing and playing of Joe. As all good things must come to an end so this one had to 


do the same, and when the time for departure came, Col. Kneisley lined them up and away we 
tramped until the order came to halt and turn ■"The Cascack'" into "A Waterfall." After which 
we marched to Tommy Welch's and paid him our respects. Tommy is a good friend of the boys 
so we could not neglect him. .\fter leaving there we all went to our barracks by different routes, 
in difTcrent conveyances and in dilTcrent shapes. One weary Willie with a limber appearance, his 
hat mashed in, and a cigar hanging to his lower li]). marched down liattimore street, owning the 
whole city and not caring who knew it, so Herbert said. Some people can't stand success. 
Another sportv elk ( ?) hired a cab. but in^^tead of getting inside i)ro])ped himself u]) on the seat so 
the cabby could hold him in. He was afraid he would fall out if he got inside. Everybody agreed 
that the election was a howling success. 

After this, time sped more quickly than ever before, and I am at the end of our history ; and 
as this manuscript must go to press before the year is over, the latter half of the doings of this 
noble class must remain unrecorded. ,My work is finished, but I am loathe to lay down my pen. I 
niigln sav as the historian of the i)revious year did, let us bury all dissentions and banish all dif- 
ferences, but there are no dissentions to bury and no differences to banish. We are a united class, 
bound together too strongly by love to he rendered asunder by differences and dissentions. Let us 
ever remain so in future years ; let no discord ever arise when we are chasing the filthy lucre. Let 
each and everv one of us do his duty and leave success to take care of itself. Remember the words 
of our departed friend and teacher, "Tlurc is one thing better than success, and that is to desire 
success." No calling is greater or more noble than relieving the sufi'crings of our fellow man, and 
mav none of us ever bring reproach to his cho.sen profession, but strive to hold it aloft unsullied 
as our predecessors have done, and when at last we shullk- off this mortal coil, may it be said of 
each an<l everv one of us. ■'Tlie world is better bv his having lived in it." 



Jl \'l". 1, I'.Hil. marks an e|)ocli in the history of the '"House." One by one, the men began to 
Rsi)ou(i to the notice that had iKvn given that tlie mantle of Clinical Assistant had now fallen 
upon their shoulders, as in l)eginning any work with which one is not familiar, the first that 
is done is to find out how and what, likewise what not to do ; so in this case "His ^Lajesty," Dr. 
Shipley called us together in the amphetheatre and explained the work that we were to do, con- 
cluding with a few "Juii'ts," saying that he would be ver\ severe in his criticisms, and if any of the 
rules were broken suspension would be the result. The biggest "don't" was the one as regards our 
attitude towards the nurses. Don't ever go into the hosi)ital without stopping and talking to the 
nurses at least fifteen mimitcs. Several nurses must be talked to each day. Don't go out with the 
same nurse more than twice a week. You nuist attend all the dances given by the luirses. Al- 
wa>'S remember the dignity of your position and "dnii't" address the residents as doctors, tlentle- 
men, 1 insist upon this. 

Modesty, or probaijlv exiiressed liy the trite hnt yet ex])ressive term lameness, seemed to be 
the predominating type of man. The true nature of things was. however, revealed on the night of 
the " Warming." Ciathered together in the hack "Court" around ;i few tables with a keg of 
,\nlieuser and a bowl of claret, each one slowly but surely began to reveal himself, and in the wee 
small hours of the night the clink of the glasses and the strains of "Moon, Moon, Silvery Moon" 
could still be heard. 


It is to be hoped that the reputation of the Class of '"05" is not dependent upon the thirty men 
living in the "House" under the name of Clinical Assistants 

The men appointed this year, like the ones who have preceded us, are a jolly, indolent set of 
men (with a very few exceptions) who don"t care for anything but a check from home and some- 
where to get rid of it ; who can get along on less sleep than any people in the world and who are 
always ready to go when some one says the word. 

It would be considered a joke were I to say that out of the thirty voices we did not have plenty 
of sweet music to drive dull cares away. This music would easily "sooth the savage cats." Very 
few nights went by that from four to twelve men wouldn't collect either in the hall or in some one's 
room, and sing all the latest music singable. It was not long before everyone in the "House" and 
even the nurses in the hospital were humming "We are tar-heels born." 

Those nightly serenades would never begin before 11.30 I'. ^1.. and would continue until 
every mother's son of "them" had blown out his Hues. This music was anything but enjoyable 
to Dr. Shipley, the superintendent : the medical staff, Moses, and inmates of the hos])ital, and so 
frequently the harmonous sounds would suddenly come to an end long before it was expected by 
those not engaged, by the sudden appearance of Dr. Shipley upon the scene of action. Or if he 
didn't dare venture out, we would find a little notice on the bulletin board the next morning — which, 
by the way, was not an infrequent thing — reminding some one to be on the lookout for others were 
anxious to have the places that we were enjoying. 

The greatest fun we have had — I say "we," because I have often heard the men say none had 
equalled this — was when Revel went home for his vacation. He hadn't been away long before he 
sent us si.K large water-melons, all of which were good and ripe. We decided to have a feast that 
night and so invited the Medical Staff over to help us out. (It is needless to say they all came). 
To make things more enjoyable, also to have something to distract our minds so that we wouldn't 
realize how much melon we had eaten, we hired an organ grinder to play for us. .\11 this hap- 
pened in the "back Court" of the "House" — beginning about 8 o'clock — but with some it has never 
ended. The music seemed to get the best of some of us — about thirteen — so we decided to go 
diound to the Cascade and drink one glass of beer — just one. But who ever heard of thirteen fel- 
lows getting together all in good "s])irits" — I mean around them — and stopping after one glass. 
This is not the sad part of the story which is all but too true. We soon tired of the "caves" at 
"Buddie's" and decided to look for something more exciting. We did not have to wonder very far 
before we had more excitement than we had bargained for. We had visited several places and some 
of us had been fortunate enough to pick up a few -souvenirs. The other fellows becoming jealous 
decided they, too, would have a souvenir. So the next place we tackled two pictures were quickly 
removed. We had not been in this place long before some one suggested moving. As the crowd 
moved out Rytina. "Foetus" Harrison and myself were detained to answer for a match-safe that 
had mysteriously disappeared. Our arguments were of no avail. "Things began to warm up, and 
the next thing I knew I had some one against thewall choking "it" for dear life. Some one opened 
the door and yelled police — police — murder, etc. ! ! ! Rytina seeing a good exit quicklv made his 
escape, leaving "Foetus" and myself to answer for all damage done. To make a long story 
short. I will say that a tall man with a blue uniform quickly appeared upon the scene and seiz- 
ing me by the arm, said, come with me. Had it not been for the good argument "Foetus" put up 
I would undoubtedly have spent the night — or better the remainder — in the Western. When we 


were filially released fmin our embarrassing position ami had joined the men on the outside we 
found one of our number, one Reddick, in a trembling condition and very anaemic. When asked 
what it meant the men pointed to the sky and in the distance we saw what we thought was a shoot- 
ing star, but upon inquiry were told that it was tiie match safe, for it was he who had taken it, and 
fearing being caught had quickly let it leave his hand. Strange to say Reddick has never regained 
his natural color, and to mention that night to him brings on a convulsion. 

On our way home we were told that some young man had been seen going down towards the 
hospital at such a rate tiiat it took three men to see him. Rytina's explanation to us for his sudden 
leave of absence was, that he wanted to get enoui^h iiione\ from the boys to go on our Imnd. for he 
realized that we were in serious trouble. 

With all of this some of our nun did not [jrolit by our mistakes, and so it w'asn't long before 
another of our luinibcr was so unfortunate as to bj "asleep at (he switch," and so was rescued by 
one of the "bhies." It is needless to say that from now on he swears that he has the best and cheap- 
est bed in the world, for his bed cost him $11.45 that night — and only one in the room. 

Christmas found ten men who were to be led with a bottle, namely, Sherard, Donnelly, Hume, 
(libsoii, Kafer, Jenkins. Carnal, Riddick, .\dkins and Irwin, who took upon themselves the name 
of "Kerukes," and so organized a lem])erance club with quarters in Sherard's room. The require- 
ment for membership was each man shoukl have a capacity of at least three quarts, and should al- 
ways be at roll-call, which took place at 'iMO A. M. Our motto was "Drink and the "Kerukes" 
drink with vou, swear off and you are no tru;.- 'Keruke.' " It is needless to sa\ that ni>one resigned, 
but nianv a true "Keruke" would sing llu' next lU'irning "Ain't it funny what a difference just a 
few drinks make." 

The ball, which rolletl all during the holidays, was started along its course Sunday. Xmas 
night. We were not .selfish so invited the medical staff over to see that everything was fixed ac- 
cording to the laws. No doubt things would be going along smoothly now, but for the fact a 
notice suddenly appeared on the bulletin board which read as follows: "It is time all drunken- 
ness and disorder was at an end." So realizing what this meant we did not lose nuich time in get- 
ting on our feet again. 

One of the main attractions for a man to apply for the "House" is the many fair nurses that 
he is constantly thrown with. Many's the man who has not only lost his heart, but his head and 
money in this way. 

"Rob" Mitchell, the most attractive one of our number, is to be seen at all hours carrying dub- 
sandwiches U]) the back-stairs to his innumerable friends, Brabham, Jenkins and Waltham, who, 
by the way, are very modest in their actions, left everything to Xmas and made things good in a 
material way. 

It was Brabham who wanted to know where the men took the nurses when they went out with 
them at night. Ciibson — better known as "Topsy" — well, he just can't be contented uidcss he is 
witli a nurse or neglecting his work to see one. One of the fellows was telling him on one oc- 
casion where he could take his friend for a quiet evening. "There is a French restaurant in tlie 
northern part of the city" on a certain corner. Fiut (libson didn't exactly understand where it was, 
■ ind before the mill Ii.iil linislird explaining the situation, tiibsoii blurted (uit — "Is that the Dutch 
tea room?" 


"Foetus" Harrison thinks he is a regular Sherlock Hohnes — knows everything that ever hap- 
pens and even where every student and nurse goes. Foetus, Hke several of the others, did nor lose 
much time in laying his heart bare to a very attractive member of the school. He is certainly in- 
debted to Disosway for saving his life, when he was neglecting his own. It seems that the little 

boy had imbibed too freely of the "red eye" and in consequence, thereof, was d n sick. After 

Disosway had arrainged him nicely in bed with a basin near his head he proceeded to rob the ice- 
cooler of ice and an ice-poultice was applied to his abdominal region, and remained there all night. 
Morning found the unfortunate badly in need of a massage. After receiving this and a cold 
plunge (to say nothing of the quantity he lOok internally) he was himself again — swearing never 
to k'ave home again. Brooks, the most unassuming "House man" we have, doesn't believe in break- 
ing a girl's heart, just because he can, so doesn't even give one a pleasant look. It was Dr. Scott 
who said one morning after Brooks had passed by that, "He is the quaintest man I ever saw." 
To pass by without mentioning McCarthy — George — wouldn't be exactly right. George, poor boy, 
is working hard for a place on the jiti-c-kal-o-jc side, and the way things are going now worries 
him very much, so he says. George is all to the good, but it seems that it requires a special effort 
for him not to lie down even while on an operation. He has even been known to be sleeping 
against a radiator during the wee small hours of a cold winter's morn, dreaming "of the world 
and all the wonder that would be" (when he got his appointment). Poor Billingslea and Pearson, 
the two heavenly twins — the inseparables — are always on hand with a smile and ready to do some 
one's work. "Bob" Bay, better known as "Beef Steak Bob," has come t(_) the conclusion that he 
doesn't want an appointment, so he has given up making "rounds" in the hospital. In considera- 
tion of this sacrifice he demands he shall be relieved of the title of "student." A title most glibly 
spoken by the nurses. 

Probably the most affectionate man of our number is Carnal who showed his affections dur- 
ing the wee small hours of a summer's night, by stoutly pounding one of his own "frat" mates — 
Hala — to prove his love for Revel. Perhaps the most pathetic part of it was Hala's ragged shirt, 
Carnal's demented condition, and the discovery by the nurses of Revel's and Brabham's false 
claims to sobriety. 

r<eFevre, Janney, Disosway and Mathews, all strong men upon most occasions, but on an oper- 
ation (which is not bloodless) they, too, seem to lose blood in sympathy for the patient, especially 
from their heads and faces, and on innumerable operations have had to call for help, fresh air, and 
the "Kcruks" beverage to tide them over. 

No one in the "House" can understand why Bare, the six-foot five-inch giant, was so foolish 
is to leave a $.51.00 coat around so carelessly, or how Dr. Bagley can tell Stone from the "D. T." 
man when they are both in the same bed sleeping soundly. (Jr why it is Kafer never complains 
when he is posted to "sit u])" after l".'. Likewise, they wonder if Dr. Shipley didn't make a great 
mistake in his man when he said Irwin was drinking hard this year. 

Revel, the best-hearted man of our number, has but two faults only one of which can be men- 
tioned here, for fear of embarrassment, and that is his profanity. This habit has so grown on 
him that he can't sleep at night without using a few oaths after saying his prayers at night, and 

during the dav when in a conversation every other word is a d n. "Sherry" was so unfortunate 

this summer as to get night and day mixed up. It seems that he had spent the night on a "mcd- 


ical cast-." and I tlid not gel to sleep until after breakfast. On arising about 7 o'clock in the even- 
ing he came out on the street and met "I-'oetus." asking him if it was night or day. "FoUus" 
catching on at once (something unusual) tnld him it was morning. "Sherry" then wanted to 
know why so many ])e<ii)le were on the streets and why were the electric lights lighted, .\tter 
walking him around and visiting several "drug stores" he was able to tell the difference. 

.Mathews was not a "Houseman" long before Dr. Shipley had to call him down in anything 
but a gentle way. It seems that he was taking toj much resi)onsibility upon liis hands, and was in- 
terfering with things he had no business. So he was told if he would attend to his own business 
as well as he di<l to other people's he would get along better and in the end would be liked. He is 
the only man who knows he has an appointment, and so he wears his '■little" white coat all the 
time that he may be accustomed to the white uniform next year. 

I lunie. the ex-druggist, who occujjics a room with us, although not a "House student," de- 
serves mentioning with the rest, fnr his nann' is among- the first on the roll of fame. Becoming 
lonesome he was secrctely married to one of the Puerto Ricans early in the fall. He never— no 
never— gets over board, but loves dearly to handle the "papers." and is one of our greatest leaders 
in singing. 

Other things could be w-rittcn, and there are things that it is better they should not appear in 
print. Never was there a more congenial crowd than we "Honse-Students," and it is with a sad- 
ness that I realize our time to leave here is near at hand and that the good times we have had to- 
gether are at an end. We will always try to live u]) to the motto— 'X'ivimus viramus," and will 
never forget the wav to go home.

STOl'IM'.!). liMiked wildly al)i>ut for a moment and then made a lunge for the nearest 
lamp post, and embraced it as though it were a long lost child. Then and there I 
swore a solemn oath that it was to he the "benzine wagon for mine" from that moment 

I had been working hard for five years without taking a vacation and made up my mind 
that it was up to me to partake of a little of the "spice of life." so had started for New 
/ork three days before in search of variety. I'.arly in the afternoon I had visited the sani- 
tarium of my former classmate, Dr. \Vm. Mitchell, and had taken dinner with him. In 
response to his earnest entreaties T had relinguished my seat on the water wagon and I regret 
to say that before I left him I had accumulated quite a respectable load. 

I had heard of peojjle in my condition "seeing things," but here I was all alone in a 
strange city "hearing things." It was twenty years since I had heard that yell and my mind 
wandered back to the old days at tiie University of Maryland, and the many i)lcasant mem- 
ories that were associated with them. I pictured tlie olil .\natomical Hal! with its seats 
filled with the boys of '0.') — ^Oh Lord, there it was again. 


College ! College ! 
Teacher ! Teacher ! 
Ra-a-a-h ! 

This time it seemed to come from around the corner, and I made up my mind that I 
would walk right into it and if I were in for a touch of D. T.'s I was going to have 'em 
right. I got myself together and made a hreak in the direction from which the sounds 
came, and as I turned the corner I saw a sight which held me spellbound and went a long 
ways toward sobering me up. 

Surrounded by a crowd of men and boys there stood a fakir's wagon, with the usual 
gasoline lamps around it, and on the seat with a bottle in each hand stood Benjamin F. 
Tefft, Jr. 

Once more came the sounds. 

College! College! 
Teacher! Teacher! 

Ra-a-a-h I 
Doctor Tefft! 

Involuntarily two more words which rightfully belonged on the end of the yell, came to 
my lips, and I had to exert considerable will power to hold them back, but naturally, I 
shouted them to myself with a vigor that I had not felt for many a day. 

I now saw that the yelling was being done Ijy some ten or twelve l)oys who were 
standing on the wagon immediately behind the "DOCTOR," who wore the well-known "book- 
selling smile" now augumented by a silk hat and prince albert coat. 

My first impulse was to get away from the place as quickly as possible, but this desire 
finally gave way to my curiosity and I remained to see what was to follow. I learned that 
the "DOCTOR" had for sale a preparation that would cure rheumatism, gout, cough, sore 
throat, corns, malaria, boils, and at the same time by the addition of a little water would 
remove grease spots and stains from clothing. 

It pained me more than I can tell to see an alumnus of old Maryland engaged in such 
degraded work and I quietly withdrew and went back to my hotel to think the thing over. 
I lit a cigar and sat pondering over what I had seen. From Tefft my thoughts wandered to 
some of the other fellows and I commenced wondering how they were faring. The more I 
thought the more my interest and curiosity became aroused, and I made up my mind then 
and there to visit as many as possible, and renew old acquaintances 

The next day I went to Baltimore and upon visiting the University I found it a far diff- 
erent institution from tliat which I knew during my course. It now covered about three 
times the area that it did in the old days, and the hospital is one of the finest in the country. 
The dispensarv is in charge of K. M. Lalley, who is probably the one man in this broad land 
of ours who knows "how to run a dispensary and run it right." As I stood on the corner I 
heard the gong of a descending air-ship and as it landed I saw the tall, lanky figure of 
old Sid. Clarke get out. Under his arm was the usual volume of anatomy, although instead 


of Cray it \\a> the \\<>vk nf j. S. I'eaty. I certainly was glad to see Sid., and was n<>t in the 
least surprised to learn thai ho now occupied the chair lOrnicrly Tilled hy Dr. J. Holmes 
Smith, Sr. I say "not surjirised," l>ecanse dnrinjr our school days, i)articularly those of the 
first two years, he studied anatoniv. not only durins;' the hoins that the other hovs devoted 
to study, hut on the street cars, duriuL; his meals, between lectures and I've heard it whis- 
pered that on several occasions he hail even been found in the rear room on the first floor 
of the laboratory building, with Ciray's .\natoniy on his knees, studing the iiranches of tlie 
bachial ple.xus. He asked me when I left home, and 1 told him. ■■\\'hy."' he said, "You 
must have left before the notice arrived then. " I asked him what he was driving at and he 
told me that the Class of ]',I0.") was to hold a leunion in I'.altiniore two weeks from that \ery 
da\'. ami that lie li;iil vent a ni itire li > tliat elTerl ti > e\ ei \ niemlier i m the d.'iv that 1 left In niie : 
so this accounted for my not lia\iiig heard of il. This was indeed a stroke of luck for me. 
and would enable me to accoiiiiilish mv object wiilioiu being obliged to endure the monotoiu' 
of tr;i\eliiig from one place to ;iii(itlier in order to see the fellows. 

In response to mv f|uestion as to how the world had been using him. he sprung the 
vilest pun that I had heard since I left the "Bowery." He said, "I was getting along 
Kneisley until .ibout five years ago wlien I discovered I had a Stone in my bladder and I'd 
ha\e Benner goner had not Holmes Smith came along and held death at Bay until Houck 
arrived just in time to sa\e my life by performing a cystotomy, which laid Bare the cause 
of the trouble, and the sexton i^ still waiting for a chance to ring the death Knell for me." 

I looked at him in astonishmenl and fearing he was al)out to hand another one out 
to me I s.aid, "Sid. I always did enjoy a good joke, but I'll be blamed if I Kafer any more 
of that stami), and if you start to spring another I'll Hala ])oliceman and have you i)iu 
back in the Riha. where you belong." He started in ti> tell me that he W'aas only fooling, 
but I jumjied aboaid a passing car and made my escape. 

The following two weeks I spent between Baltimore and Washington, simply killing 
time until the d;iv of the reunion. ( )ne exening at my hotel in the latter city. 1 |-;mg for 
S(jme "ice water" before retiring, and when the bell boy brought it up I was struck by the 
resemblance he bore to some person 1 had seen before — who it \\;is I coiiM not for the 
life of me think. He was about to go out again when I hailed him. He was rather stunted 
ir size but his face was wrinkled and he looked like an old man. Now that he came nearer 
and stood close to me I was nmre than ever imjires.sed by liis extremely low stature, and 
his head seemed to barely come above my waist. "Boy," said I, "There is .s<imething 
strangely familiar in votir apjiearance and il seems to me 1 must have .seen yi>u some where 
before. What is Mnir name?" "G. Pdight Harrison, sir." was the answer. "Great Scott! 
iioi i'oetii-' ! " 1 >,iid. A jodk of ]):iin -hot across his for a second, followed hy one 
of pleasure. "1 knew there was something familiar about your face. sir. but couldn't just 
place you. but 1 know you now, you are Joe Gan.s — XO, I mean Joe Carroll." I askeil him 
to tell me how it h.apiieiied that he was serving as a bell boy. and he sat down and told me 
his sad story. 

".\fler graduating, I served a year in the L'nixersity Hospital, and then went back to 
"Ole Vaginia" to practice. I o])eneil an office and for fi\e long years I barely kept from 
st;ir\iiig. b'\ei\bodv seemed to look it]ion me as ;i Hell of a goo<l joke, so I finally became 


discouraged, sold out and ten years ago came to Washington and got a job in this hotel 
washing dishes. I have worked myself up by degrees, and now, (this with a look of pride 
and about eight inches increase in his chest measurement) "I am head bell boy." 

I felt awfully sorry for the poor fellow, but his family had put a Blight upon his poor 
young life soon after he entered the world, and it had stuck to him like grim death ever 

A few days later in Baltimore, I started out to find a laundry, and finally wound up 
in a Chinaman's wash shop. The fellow who waited upon me scrutinized me rather closely 
and after learning that my package would be ready "Fliday," I started for the door, but 
was stopped by "Hey Mlister, you know mlee?" I looked back at the pig tail and long 
nuistache and said, "No, of course I don't know you — who the devil are you?" 

"Mlee know you allee samee — mice Flank Blurden," I looked again and I'll be blamed 
if he wasn't telling the truth; it certainly was Frank Burden. In the Fall of 1905 he had 
gone back to China to resume his missionary work, but his efforts among the heathen had 
not been crowned with success, and after fifteen years' of hard work trying to plant the 
Hower of Christianity in the Far East, he had come back to Baltimore. During his absence 
he had forgotten nearly all he knew of the English language, and had such a hard time 
r.piin his return trying to cmnince ]ieople that he was not a Mongolian; that he finally 
gave it up in despair and opened a laundry. 

As I left Frank's collar and shirt em])orium I thought I'd like to visit some of the old 
haunts, where we all had so manv good times in the old davs and so I headed for the place 
that was dear to so many of us, namely, the Cascade. I'll never forget the night of our 
Seni(ir Class election, and the two hours fdllowing the adjournment of that memoralile 
meeting, that we spent at "Buddie's." In my imagination I can still see the long row of 
tables, placed end to end, and little Benner. God bless him, at the head acting in the capacity 
n\ toastmaster, with a glass of ginger ale in front of him, tlie songs, si)eeches and yells which 
later nearlv tore the papier-mache rocks from their sockets. How industriously our newly 
elected president served the gang with the fnaming goblets, aitled by the man he had just 

It certainly was a great night, and the enjoyment would have ben complete were it 
not marred by just two incidents — the first being a song which Hall, a Senior tlental man, 
insisted upon singing, and the second, when one of our number so far forgot himself as to 
think it would be a good joke to spill a glass of beer down the collar of our meek little 

But my reverie is broken by the discovery that I have nearly reached my destination. 
.\ modern and up-to-date hotel now stood on the site, but a huge brass sign proclaimed 
that it was still the Cascade, and — was it my imagination playing me a trick ? — No, for 
there stood Buddie himself as big as life (which in his case was not very big). He was 
considerably aged but still the same jovial fellow. When I first extended my hand he didn't 
recognize me, but after closely scrutinizing my face he saw who it was. Almost his first 
words were: "I've got an old friend of yours tending bar for me now, come in and see who 
it is." There between the bar and the long row of shining glasses stood Roscoe Carnal, 


attired in tlic usual white coat ami apron. When he saw me he didn't wait to go around the 
end but vaulted over the middle of the bar, and huiji^ed me til! I was afraid they'd be 
obliged to break a few Amyl Nitrite peries under my nose in order to start my respiratory 
centre to work again. \Ve sat down at one of the tables to talk things over and he told me 
he had tired of medicine and had been employed as a wine clerk (we used to call it "booze 
slinger" but he said "wine clerk") for twelve years now, but had been in his present situa 
lion onlv about three, lie said, "I sujjpose you read of our old classmates, the 'Siamese 
twins." " L'pon my replying in the negative he seemed sur])rised, because at the time, the 
newspapers and medical journals all over the country were publishing articles upon it. He 
said, "You remember the case of Carl Hohmann, which Prof. Ashby mentioned in his book, 
who masqueraded part of her life as a man — well Pierson |)roved to be a parallel case and 
about five years ago married Billingslea and they are now the happiest couple in Baltimore. 
They are practicing here in the city, and their sign reads: 'Dr. and Mrs. Dr. Billingslea.' " 

Roscoe told me that several of the boys had been in to see him within the past few 
months. Chappelear had been in a few days before and was as lazy as ever. We both had 
a good laugh at the mention of the day that Chap, while attending a ward class had climbed 
into iJK' bed ailjoining the iialienl's. and lay sirctched out there iluriug the whole hour. Ik- 
asked me if 1 had been up to see the show at the '".Maryland" yet, and insisted upon me 
going with him that afternoon as he had a surprise in store for me and it certainly was ,-i 
surprise, for when I looked at my programme it read: 



In hi> one-man comedv, entitled "iMfteen Minutes in the Amphitheatre, or Who Stole the 


We saw I'.'ib after llie i)erforniance, and he told us that he had no engagement booked 
for the coming week and would remain in Baltimore and meet the fellows who came to 
the reunion. 

That night Clarke, Mitchell and myself decided that we would have Carnal arrange 
things so we could have our bauciuct in the main dining hall of the Cascade, and we left 
the matter entirely in his hands. 

When the eventful night arrived I was somewhat delayed and when I reached the 
meeting place I found everybody seated. After a general handshaking we started in to bom- 
bard the menu, which had been prepared for us, and by the time the cigars were brougln 
on everybody was in the best of humor and ready to relate to the others his experiences 
since we parted in May, 1905. 

I'ir-<t, the letters and telegrams from those who were unable to attend were rend 
Prominent among the former was one from our old friend Tyson. He informed n; i': i: 
he could not consistently attend as he had lost all faith in medicine and was now the i> i-t^ i 
of the "First Church of Christian Science," of Laurel, Md. Metzell told us why an! luw 
this change had come about. It secme one night Tyson had been out in the Ci u:ilr\ on a 

case and during the long drive home liad repeatedly opened the well known, and now, much 
worn satchel, and taken several large doses of "Cawn liker" from a bottle therein. When 
he arrived home Mrs. Tyson and all the little Tysons were sound asleep. The doctor dived 
down into his pocket for his key, but discovered that he did not have it with him. For a 
moment he didn't know just what to do, as he didn't want to arouse his wife and have her 
see him in his present condition, but being a man equal to any emergency his face lighted 
up almost immediately. He opened the satchel and removed a jar of Unguentum Bella- 
donnae and applied a liberal smear to the keyhole, and with an air of confidence and assur- 
ance turned the knob and pushed, but the door refused to open. He seemed surprised but 
did not give up and went around to the side of the house tuitil he came to a small round 
window, about eight inches in diameter. He daubed the margin of this with the ointment, 
but it failed to dilate and he became discouraged. He began to worry now and offered up 
a silent but fervent prayer as he replaced the jar in his bag. Just at this moment he heard 
something drop with a clink on the ground beside him. He struck a match, and lo ! there 
lay his key. It probably had been caught in his clothes in some manner and dropped just 
at the critical moment, but Tyson firmly believed that it was the prayer which brought it, 
and couldn't be made to believe otherwise. Here was a case where prayer came to his 
rescue, and his old standby — the ever faithful Unguentum Belladonnae went back on him. 
'I'll is is how he lost all faith in medicinal agents, and became an advocate of Christian 

Rytina told us that he had been fairly successful in his practice for his first ten years, 
and at the present time was devoting himself solely to surgery. His modesty forbade him 
telling how really successful he had been, but we all knew that he had long since attained 
great fame because of his ability as a "prepupectomist." 

At this point Chairman Mitchell arose and said, "Gentlemen, it is with extreme sor- 
row and regret that I make the announcement of the death of two of our number — Dr. Geo. 
S. McCarty and Dr. Samuel \V. Hammond. 

Mac was thrown from his horse shortly after his graduation and the high standing- 
collar so familiar to us all and so becoming to poor George, was forced in through the 
muscles of his neck, completely severing his carotid artery, and he bled to death before aid 
could be summoned. 

Hammond had been practicing in the mountains of West Virginia, and was one day 
called out to see a woman who had been suddenly taken ill. She had been in perfect health 
and had served her husband his dinner, but about an hour after the husband left she was 
taken with violent pains in the region of her appendix. Hammond arri\'ed shortly after 
six, and was examining the patient when the latter's husband came into the room. Now 
he did not know Hammond, neither did he know that his wife was ill, and naturally was 
somewhat taken aback when he saw a man in his wife's room. "Who are you sir, and what 
are you doing here?" he said, addresing the Doctor. The latter was somewhat surprised, 
but calm and collected, and started in the slow, deliberate manner so well known to all of

Hughes was asked what he had been doing to kill time for the past twenty years, and 
leplied. "Really fellows, during my fourth year I became so thoroughly disgusted with medi-

Jenkins informed us that he was conducting a private insane asylum somewhere in 
Virginia, and that Jim Mattliews was tlie star boarder of tlie institution. Jim always was 
subject to hallucinations during his college days, when he wnuld at limes imagine thai the 
school or hospital could not exist without him. 

Kenaway when called upttn, said that considering his size he had met with very fair 
success, and tliat he n<_)W had a harem of twent\'-three wi\es and the Li>rd only kudws Imw 
many chiklren, as their fond pajja had never found time to count them all. I certainly 
agree with him, only think he was a trifle modest in declaring that he had met with fair 
success, only because I C(jnsider that a man four feet se\en inches in height that can flash 
a family like that mi his friends — Well, to say he had met with phcnoininal success 
would be putting it mildly. (This from personal knowledge of such matters, as I am sev- 
errd inches taller than him, and \'\t never had the courage to take unto myself one wife, and 
I've l)een fairlv successful in .accumulating a parcel of this workl's good at that.) He gave 
quite a lengthy speech about everything in general and nothing in particular, and I noticed 
that he still retained many of the peculiar little mannerisms which had in former days 
caused him to be looked upon l>y each and e\ery one of us as the pet of the class. 

Dr. Blois proved to the satisfaction of all that he was not a believer in the doctrine of 
race suicide, by boasting that he was the proud father of a few children himself, and al- 
though he was not the adept that Kenaway was, }'et he had four girls and nine bovs who 
called him "Papa." Riddick broke in on him at this point with, "Say, Seth, that's a bad 
total: \-ou know thirteen is a dangerous number to fool with — I'd advise you to make it 
fourteen even if you have to go to an orphan asylum and adopt one." vSelh retaliated with, 
"Sour grapes, Riddick, my boy, sour grapes." (Possibly this was the case with Riddick, 
because of some reason best known to himself had never married.) Seth seemed very 
proud of his family and told us that he never was so happy as when in his own home with 
his wife and children climbing all over him, and pulling his hair out by the fistfuls (I don't 
mean his wife was climbing all over him and jiulling his hair out — only the children). If 
Seth devotes as much time to his family now as he did during the first two months of 1905 
I fail to see where he e\'er got enough money to buv e\-en the cluur that he sat in while the 
children climbed over him. 

Remsburg said he had been gi\'ing demonstrations of his knowledge of the art of heal- 
ing in the wilds of Maryland for twenty years. He related an interesting experience he 
had had about two weeks previous to his visit to Baltimore. One night about twelve 
o'clock his bell rang and upon opening the door he saw a man who was somewhat under 
the influence of "That's all." The stranger said, "Shay Doctor, how mush will you charge 

ti' go out to ?" (Naming a village some five miles away) The Doctor said, "Is it 

absolutely necessarv that I go out there tonight, or can you wait until morning?" The answer 
was, "No, uh mush start right off — can't get there a minute too shoon — how mush yuh 
goin' t' soak me?" Now it was a very disagreeable lu'ght and the rain was pouring down 
in torrents, but Remsburg sized his caller up as a poor fellow who was obliged to work 
hard for his living and so decided to let him down light, and said, "Well, I'll go out there 
for three dollars." "It's a go — I'll help yuh hish up horsh." They went to the stable and 
soon harnessed the horse and were ready to face the elements. Remsburg got in and the 


fellow climbed up beside him and they started. They had not gone a quarter of a mile 
before the stranger had fallen into a sound sleep, from which he did not waken until the 
Doctor shook him up upon reaching the outskirts of the village. The man was asked 
where he lived and upon their arrival at the iiouse climbed out. and as Kemsburtj started 
to do likewise said. "Don't get out Doc. — here ze money." Now the Doctor didn't quite 
understand this and said, "1 don't want the money now. wait until I see the ])atient. as 
I may have to make several visits before I'm through." 

"There ain' no pashun 'tall." 

"What's that?" 

"I .shimbly said, there ain't no pashun 'tall." 

"Then what the devil did you bring me out here for?" 

"W i-ll, I didn't wan' t' walk, so I wen' t' see th' feller tha' keeps th' liv'ry shtable an' 
he waii't t' siioak me five fer a team an' man t' drive me home an' then I ashked you how 
musli yuli 'd charge an' yuh said 'three,' zo I tho't I'd give yuh th' job, an' here ze money 

an' dim' make such a fuss 'bout it." 

At tliis point a horrible noise was heard to issue from under the table. We all looked 
at one another and it was then that we discovered that Slierrard's chair was vacant. Again 
came the noise and upon investigating we found "Sherry" had fallen asleep and quietly 
slid off onto the floor, and it was his snore that iiad disturbed us. We aroused him and 
sat him up in his place, and when the laughter and kidding had subsided Rooks was called 
n|)( m. 

"C.entlemen," he said, "No doubt some of you will be surprised to learn that ten years 
ago 1 realized the folly of the life I had been leading and determined to turn over a new 
leaf. I joined the Church and have since been engaged in active missionary work among 
the negroes of Lf>uisiana." 

Tliis proved too much for Revell, who gave vent to an emphatic and extremely expres- 
sion. "Oh Hell," which was resented by Rooks and in the "free-for-all" which followed, 
I saw a cuspidor coming straight for my head. I tried to dodge but some unknown force 
held me immovable, and it landed squarely over my left eye. The entire "Solar System" 
was as a tallow candle, when compared to the iieavenly i)henomena which was revealed 
to me at that moment, and then all became dark. 

When I opened mv eyes I was sitting m a rocking chair and my first impulse was to 
feel of my head and 1 felt no lesion of any sort. I rushed to a mirror which hung on the 
wall and sure enough there was not the slightest sign that any thing h;id struck me. A-^ 1 
rose a note bi lok (lrii])peii I'lom mv knees and now 1 picketl it uj) ;hu1 saw that in contained 
notes on "State Medicine." 'i'his was something I could not quite understand until 1 
looked about me and recognized my old room on Columbia Aveiuie — and there sound 
asleej) lav my roommate — the hands of the clock pointed to a ipiarter of three. For a 
moment I stood as one dazed and then I remembered that I had been reading up State 
Medicine; that I must have fallen asleep and it was all — a dreaiu.

To UNDERSTAND the unique position occupied by the Junior Class, we have only to refer 
to the history of our preceding years, as chronicled in the Annuals of '02-'03 and '03-'04. 
Through these lines run a seeming prophecy of greater achievements. There is manifest 
among us a fulfillment of this dormant prediction, in the success that has attended our every 

Talent drawn from all parts of our own great country, her northern neighbor, the isles of the 
sea, and the Orient as well, have combined to make us the class of promise. When we take an 
inventory, and realize our present pre-eminent position, we marvel that our college life began in 
the ordinary way of College Classes. You could not possibly recognize any features of the ver- 
dant Freshman of '02 in the grave and reverend Junior of today. You would more likely think 
the Faculty had just created a Junior Class, modeled after its own idea of perfection. 

It would not be like us to claim that the boys of 1906 go to make up the most brilliant class 
ever enrolled in the University ; our modesty forbids, but if any man would know it, we say to him, 
consult the records where our work is tabulated. 

The characteristics that have made possible the foregoing remarks, we claim to be unity of 
purpose and combined effort. No individualism has been tolerated among us. As a class, we have 
faced manfully the problems of preceding years, conquered, and shared together its honors. With 
this idea in view, my readers will not be surprised when the happenings of this, our third epoch, 
are read. 

October 3rd, 1901, witnessed the reassemblage of the fellows of '06, on the historic campus, 
where a few months previous we had bid each other good bye with a hearty "college handshake," 
and best wishes for a joyous vacation. This opening scene of our third epoch, was a revival of the 
fraternal feeling which had united us during the earlier sessions. Having successfully passed 
Sophomore examinations, and enjoyed a well earned vacation, we turned our thoughts to the prob- 
lems of the third year. 


The opening days were spent in greeting here an<l there a famiUar face, and in extending to 
those who had come from other institutions to cast their lots with us, whom by the way, con- 
stituted an ad(Htion of which the Class feels justly proud, a hearty welcome among us. It is with 
deep regret that we chronicle the absence of two of our classmates, those whose smiling faces and 
cheerful greetings, have been snatched from us by the unresistant hand of death. Together, we 
bear the loss, which to us is inestimable. 

Death robbed us of them and their promising future, hut imt of their memories, which shall 
always bring back to us their virtues, and demonstrate the fact that indeed the worthy shall live 
again in the hearts of men. 

Lured onward by the star of hope and past success, we zealously began the work of the third 
year, in which our time has since been fully occupied. At this writing we are looking forward to 
the arrival of the closing scene of the third epoch. I' attainments have made us strong in con- 
fidence, and we exi)cct nothing less than a continuance of this which, by the way, is not the result 
of chance or luck as some would say. but of honest and diligent effort. At various times during 
the year our fellows have turned aside to particiiiale in allied college pleasures. 

A goodly number represented us at the Y. M. 0. .\. reception early in the session. Several 
are identified with the Musical Association of the Iniversity, which organization was from the 
first warmly supported bv our fellows without whom it would have appeared with difficulty. 
Others have entered with the same zeal into atliletics, displaying their executive ability as offi- 
cers, managers and skill as players, by actual participation in its victories. Indeed, in every move- 
ment whatsoever, affecting the student body, the Class of 'Oi\ has contributed its quota, both of 
talent and energetic work. 

It seems hardly necessary to make special reference to the one class event of the session. 
You will interpret m\ reference to be directed to the theatre party and banquet, held at the 
.-Xcademy of Music and F.utaw House, respestively, on the evening of January 2.'?. 1005. This 
gala occasion was participated in by a large mijorit> oi Uu- class, and is remembered as tlie 
banner event in our hi>tor\. Mowing banners of old gold and purple, maroon and black, hover- 
ing over eight boxes tilleil with pleasure-seekers, spreading tables of York Rivers, salmon cul- 
lets and turkey olio, resting under the thundering voices of silver-tongued sons of Demasthenes, 
and almost audible strains of "Tni on the Water Wagon Now," as it fell from the lips of peerless 
Mr. Daniels, loom u]) in our memories of this well .spent evening. In making .special mention 
of untiring efforts, sacrifices, and in contributing much to the success of this undertaking to our 
deserving President and co-workers, the J lislorian feel> lu' voices the sentiments of the class. 
The Historian acknowledges, too, an apology due the class for liaving so incompletely nar- 
rated its past, but .space will not permit of further dilation, l-'ach man is a living history within 
himself. Take us together and we constitute a chain rightly deserving the envy of our 

We look forward to the future of our Class with thai contidence that bespeaks even greater 
achievements. When the rajiidly ajiproaching threshold has been crossed, as it shall be .soon, 
and greater opportunities afforded our fellows, we believe they will i)rove their claims. I'nrec- 
(jgnized powers will manifest themselves. Ncw( ?) facultties will grow into action. C.reater 
possibilities will dawn, and heretofore unsunnountable obstacles will crumble under our trained 
powers of conquest. — Historian.

Some are born with honor, some inherit honor and some have honor thrust upon them. The last 
seems to be my case, for I have had the honor of writing the history of the Centennial Class of the 
University of Maryland thrust upon me, which I consider a task beyond the scope of my humble 
ability. As you know, some histories are no more than some man's fertile imagination stretched to 
its limit, while others are no more than a traversity of realistic ideas. As I am not possessed of a 
good imagination and my sense of humor is correspondingly limited, I will stick to the word 
history in its truest sense and give you no more than some of the most important events that have 
happened during the so far short career of this class. 

It was born October 1st, 1903, its members representing many states and countries. 

I dare say that few of our members appreciated the fact, when they were selecting some suit- 
able institution to go through the ordeal of earning an M.D., that they were to be one of the one- 
hundreth or centennial class of our already well known Alma Mater. However all of us were 
overjoyed to find that such was the case and after the Sophomores finished instructing us how to 
conduct ourselves, all entered into the spirit of work with a determination that bespake of the 
future career of a Centennial Class. 

In the latter part of October, a class election was held, and the class organized. Later class 
pins were selected and one was purchased by nearly every member of the class. 

March 17th, 1904, is a date that will be long remembered by all 1907 men, for it was on that 
memorable night that our most worthy and honorable president Albert H. Carroll, now attending 
Edinburgh University, had the Class assembled at Northampton Hotel to "feed." A most pala- 
table menu was served, and a very pleasant and enjoyable night was spent by all. There were 
some good as well as witty impromptu speeches made during the course of the "feed" by the elo- 
quent members of the Class. Some of the fellows "lamps" were not exactly in working order and 
it was with some difficulty that they said "good night" to Carroll. It would not do for the historian 
to record some of the incidents that happened on the journey to our various residences, so he 
will leave that to the Class, as individuals, to tell to their children and their children's children. 

October 3rd, 190-1:, found most of the fellows back at the old stand although some did not get 
back till later and a few not at all. In place of the few who did not return we found a greater 
number of new men from other colleges, all of whom are bright, good looking and healthy chaps, 
who have entered in our grand old school with the spirit of the Class. It must be noted in this 
connection, that last year we had only a roll of 47, his year we have one of 62, showing that when 
we graduate we will not only be great in mind but great in numbers. 

Of course we took care of the Freshmen and taught them what and what not to do. It was a 
hard proposition, but they finally came to know and understand their duties as aspirants to the 
honors of "the" most honored profession. They were all shown the places of most importance in 
Baltimore in groups of ten and fifteen, with all decorations necessary to identify them as Freshmen, 
should one in any way become separated from the flock. 


Among aoinc of the most notable attainments of tlic Class iiiusi Ik- nK-ntioned the fact that we 
were the promoters of an international peace congress, hekl at the University of Maryland, in Octo- 
ber, 1901. As a result, japan and Russia kissed and made u]). and the former enemies Cuba 
and Spain clasped each other in a very fond and sincere embrace, and are now going through the 
formalities essential to life in tlu- ineilical wurld. 

We finally decided that Anatomy, i'insiology and Chemistry called for a little more atten- 
tion ; so we again settled down to our work v.ith an earnestness and determination that means suc- 
cess. After we had fallen into our regular routine of work, a class meeting was called by the 
Vice-President, October 7, and an eleciinn rif^ fur tin- eusuiui; year was held. .\t this meet- 
ing we decided to have a box jiarty. 

The Class assembled in the lower boxes of Ford's C.rand Opera House. Monday night. Oc- 
tolKT III. to witness the musical comedy "Red Feather." A very ])leasant evening was spent, and 
as a result, some of the fellows got so enthusiastic about musical comedies that they tried to go on 
the stage. 

In athletics. IHO? has contributed the foot-ball coach for the seasons liio:! and 1!I04. It is 
very probable that next season's coach will be furnislu<l by us. ( )ur Class is well represented on 
the basket-ball team also. 

This is no more than a brief sketch of the official and unofficial doings of tlie Class of l!t(lT, 
and will seem more comjilete to the members of the Class as they read and recall the many pleas- 
ant incidents uniittcd here for waul of sjiace.

T() XAKKATK till' history "f a class that has existed (inly for tin- brief iK'riod of three months 
woiilcl, at first thoui^ht. seem to he qnite an easy task; hut how much history can we rea- 
sonably exi)ect to be produced in so short a time? 'Tis true, the doings of a single day have 
often filled volume upon volume: but let us remember that, as a general rule, someone has been 
li>iling day by day. month by month, and maybe year by year, in order to bring about what may 
have happened in the twinkling of an lye. So it is with a class of men. That they may produce 
real historv, they must have time and, as the class of 'OS has been in existence for a short time 
unly, the historv she has produced would not fill volumes: yet she has a iiistory. and about this. 
with vour kind indulgence. I shall attimpt to tell you. 

( )n an ideal Autumn day, ( )ciol)i'r :1, '0 1, the Class of ^00A came into existence, and continued 
to grow until Diceniber, when it was found to have a roll of sixty-five, comi)osed of a handsome 
lot of fellows fmm various jiarts of the l'. .^. and representatives from Cuba and I'orto Kica. 
During the first month there was really very little accom])lisIied by the class in the line of study: 
but it had gotten itself together as a temporary org.inization, the So[)hs being abs(ilutel\- ignorant 
of the meeting, which wa-. luld in an up]ier room of the l'".utaw House, on October Sih. twenty- 
one members being present, .\fter nuicli enthusiasm had been manifested, Wdliani. the coal 
man. of Connecticut, was elected our temporary leader ; the Mountain (?) Dew, of \irginia. fall- 
ing as our Nice I'resident : a Marxland Cowherd taking charge of the cold cash, and with J. K. 
'nslev to jjrotect us from all mental harm, leaving it to each individual to ward off all bodily in- 
juries that might be indicted by the .Sophomores, The wily So])hs soon learned of our meeting, 
and at once set .ibout ascertaining whom we had iKcted. The I'resident of our class, upon en- 
tering the Chemie.-d ll.ill, was accosted by a grouj) who were seemingly, for some purpose unknown 


to him just at that moment, anxious to hear the result of the recent election. It was up to Cole- 
man to acknowledge, with nerves unstrung, that the honors of the class had been thrust upon 
him, not dreaming of the fact that he was So soon to mount Dorsey's desk as the silver-tongued 
( ?j orator of the Fresh, class. My ! My ! ! The hot air the President shot at the Sophs, and with 
a most marvellous result. It was really astonishing to see the beautiful effect that Freshman flat- 
tery had on the Sophos Moros. 

Vice-President Dew, the gentleman from Virginia, was next put upon the stand as the sec- 
ond speaker of the morning, but his oration was abruptly ended by the very welcome intrusion 
of Dean Dorsey, whose rosy countenance was illumined by "the smile that won't come oflf," and 
who seemed somewhat astonished on finding that he was about to be superseded by a fresh lec- 
turer on chemistry. With becoming dignity Mr. Dew then requested Dr. Coale to resume his po- 
sition for the day, and at once retired to the rear of the room. 

On October 29 the class convened in the Anatomical Hall for the purpose of electing perma- 
nent officers. After some spirited speeches on the part of different members of the class in be- 
half of their favorites, the ballots were taken, with the following result: President, Mr. William 
Coleman, of Connecticut; Vice-President, Mr. William Dew, of Virginia; Secretary, Mr. Homer 
U. Todd, of Maryland; Treasurer, Mr. Henry L. Sinskey, uf ?\lar_vland; Sergeant-at-Arms, Mr. T- 
K. Insley, of Maryland. 

From the first it was very evident that the men of 'OS were, in their own estimation, well 
versed in j^arliamentary law, for whenever an opportimity presented itself, one or more of the B. 
C. C. boys were ready and waiting to argue that business was not being conducted just exactly 
according to Roberts' Rules of Order. No matter how insignificant the point at issue might 
be, the Solomons, just as the Pharisees of old, would try to follow the letter of the law when 
they were absolutely ignorant of the law itself. As a result, there was a class meeting every week, 
it requiring an hour to transact the business that could just as easily have been done in fifteen 
minutes. Really class meeting came so regularly that Dr. Coale once thought of getting out a 
new schedule, including in it periods for class meetings. Not meaning to discourage anvone, but 
I think some of our men should have aspired to a judgeship, as they are now walking Gazettes 
or "Roberts' Rules of Order." 

In the field of athletics the Class of 1008 has by no means been unrepresented, the Messmore 
brothers playing magnificent ball throughout the season, seldom being out of the game. It was 
with comparative ease that these Giants won their "M," and they proved themselves a most inval- 
uable addition to the team. May our class be as well represented on the base ball field in the 
Spring as she has been on the gridiron. 

On the twentieth of November thirty-seven of the class met at Trainor's Studio for the pur- 
|K)se of having the picture taken. These men had to wait for at least an hour confidently expecting 
the other members of the class to come in at any moment. It was afterwards learned that the ab- 
sentees spent the whole day getting themselves re:idy for the picture and met at ten o'clock that 
night at the studio, when Mr. Trainor informed them that he would prefer to have a picture of them 
taken in the dark, but would take one by flashlight provided they turned their faces to the rear. Sev- 
eral attem])ts were afterwards made to get the wh:)le class to meet at a studio and pose for a picture, 
but the pretty bcjys were thoroughly confident that no photogra])her would risk his camera on them, 
conse(|uently only half of the class appear in the annual. The absent ones have a most valid excuse. 


Mr. Rlundon was the first member of the class to detect his bhinder in taking up the study of 
medicine. It is reported that this ,e;cntlemen was flesirous to embark on the sea of matrimony and, 
u]3on learning that his fiancee had a tender sjiot in her heart for professional men, he decided to 
take a profession, for pastime. That the path of the medical student is not strewn with roses Dr. 
Uhmdon soon discovered, so he determined to find some easier method to win a fair maiden's heart. 
Love has been Blundon's ruin, for since giving up medicine ho lias become financially embarrassed, 
so he has taken his failures as ill omens and will now remain in "single blessedness." 

Of the prize fighting type we have developed two. Messre. Silverburg and Little. The former 
verv heroically managed to dislocate several seats in the anatomical hall at the hands of the Sophs. 
While the latter covered himself — with dirt one day as a result of having gotten on the 
fourth row. 

.Mr. liolin, of the Palmetto State, is now making an experiment to see just how long a man can 
live on cereals alone. This gentlemen seems to be a firm believer in Prof. Hemmeter's Darwinian 
thcorv of natural selection, and has attained such a degree of perfection in adapting himself to his 
surrnuiidings that he now eats anythinj.; in the grass line, but seems to relish whisk brooms more 
than anvthing (.Ise, eating three at each meal. It seems that others have noticed a change in his out- 
ward a])i)e;irance, in consequence of the adai)tation to environment, for the janitor misplaced his 
broom one <la\ and was just about tf) use I'.olin as a substitute when Pate came rushing up with 
the danger signals on his pedestals, and Howard at once beat a ha.sty retreat. It was a source 
of nntch regret that we found Mr. Price, the ever-reddy athlete, debarred from playing on the Uni- 
versity team, on the groimds of professionalism, owing to the fact that he had played sub on every 
scrub team in I'.altiniore. This was cpiite a blow to the team, hut more especially to Price, for he 
had expected his head to be the shining light of the team. 

Among the prominent news rejiorters of the city are to be foiuul two members of the class. 
Messrs. Todd and .Steindli-T. Anyone desiring to have his life written up in a Baltimore paper at 
slight cost will do well to call on one of the gentlemen. I say one because where one is there you 
will find the other also. 

As every class must have its lady's man, so the Class of '08 is no exception. .Kiriong others is 
found .Mr. Ta\lnr. nf tin- ( )lil .\.irth State, and he it is that has captured the palm as the greatest 
heart breaker, having jjlayed sad havoc with the hearts of East Baltimore. Had I time and space 
I would like to si)eak as highly of the other members of the class as I have of already men- 
lii>ni-il. but as i have nt'itlur I will rofrain from fin-ther iiersnnai remarks. 

The critical point of our life came when we had to decide what should be our part in this 
strenuous age. We that have made the choice and have set our faces toward the goal of our lofty 
aspirations with a determination tliat knows mi defeat, could have selected no grander or nobler 
l)rofe.ssion. and now. that we have taken the iutiatory stej). let us strive earnestly to uphold the high 
standard of our time honored institution. k<.ei)ing ever before our the class motto: "Dinn 
Spiro, Spero, Spes." (While there is life there is hope). 

J. L. Anderson, Historian. 





Of all the men in all the world 
Seen early or seen late, 
There's not a man that can be found 
So foxy and yet sedate. 

It's a worry in the morning 
When he's getting out of bed, 
The only thing that really worries 
'Mong the worries in his head. 


A graceful thing and great renown 
Among the nurses has he, 
A "butter-in," indeed 'tis true, 
And a face that's all but pretty. 


He has the size of a man, 

His age, it is sufficient. 

But in common sense and manliness, 

Something certainly is deficient. 


Here's a fellow who keeps so quiet 
He was never known to raise a riot, 
He goes to church and Sunday-school 
And flirts with the nurses as a rule. 

Brooks — 

Here's a good fellow, awful small, it is true, 
Has old-fashioned ways, but altogether he'll do — 
Is a trifle contrary, but he's not to blame. 
For the way Kneisley kids him is certainly a shame. 


Carnal — 

I'm the editor-in-chief of this book you see 

And it's utterly impossible to get a knock in on me. 

I'm a liar I know, and a grafter I swear, 

i'.iit if you're roasted too hard take your spite out on Bare. 


This man will talk you blue in the face. 

Heats Munchausen two miles in a one-nule race. 

Lifts booze, smokes cigarettes, and does lots (if things bad, 

.\nd when he's asleep there's not one that's not glad. 

Gibson — 

.•\n ignoranuis of "sand-lap[)cr" birth 
His face a disgrace to any ])art of th earth. 
He's lazy, he's crazy, has wheels in hi< head. 
Don't do anvthing but loll in his bed. 

Ck)I.I)u.\i. 11 — 

Some sav that (".Dldbach's a dreamer; 

He is, and the cause is not a whim, 

He gave all his cigars to Dr. Xeale, 

.■\nd is "hitting the jjijie" with a vim. 
I Iakkison — 

He's a mill' of a fellow 

Who loves his "booze," 

Has often a jag on 

Hut never the blues. 

I K w I N — 

This is the man who duos all the swearing: 
His room in the morning needs quite an airing. 
The sulphurous fumes he emits arc a bane 
To the "House" atmosphere and the Bnwery Lane. 

Ja.nnkv — 

He's breezy in the morning, 
The same way every night ; 
To hear him tell his stories, 
^'^u"d reall\ think he'd fight. 

Jkn kins — 

Just look at my cheeks and my clothes . nil I how neat. 

Hut don't overlook the size of my feet. 

If 1 camiot be "It." well then, I won't play, 

I'or I'm the only chilil and must have mv wav. 




Wander down Lombard at three in the morning, 
A wonderful laugh sounds loud without warning; 
It pierces your ears and makes you quite sure 
That Kafer is coming; he needs Keeley Cure. 

One who came from Egypt's strand 
His studies to persue. 
He's quite a dapper little chap 
But thinks that green is blue. 

Le Fevre — 

Oh, tiddle-winks! Oh, fol-de-ral ! 

What have we come upon ? 

The most entirely disagreeable man 

The sun ever shone upon. 

Mahle — 

We know that Mahle s timid 

And afraid of his little brother. 

But why does he always go with a nurse 

Old enough to be his mother? 
Mathews — 

He came from the country 

As green as grass. 

Four years at college, 

Oh, what an ass. 
McCarty — 

He's tall and quite slender 

And very stubborn they say. 

Plays poker all night 

And sleeps all the day. 
Mitchell — 

A great big hulk with pounds of flesh, 

A beautiful boy, but a trifle fresh. 

He'd run from the least thing requiring nerve. 

Five years in a nursery he ought to serve. 



This man docs his work, 

About his own he's busy. 

But he bothers his head a bit too much 

About a country girl named Lizzie. 

As the better half of the Siamese Twins 
This young man drinks in knowledge. 
But everyone thinks he'd be in his right place. 
If at the Woman's Medical College. 


Revell — 

Some people arc [)rone to flatter 
And sim-ar the oil on thick, 
Friend Revell does this little stunt 
In a way that's pretty slick. 


Well, what's the matter with Riddick, 
He's turned as pale as a ghost. 
Oh, he's just been treated to egg-nog, 
Shame on the wicked host. 


To run and not be caught 
Will be my motto ever, ' 
I'or he who's scared and runs away — 
Well, I think he's rather clever. 
Sallev — 

If telling lies were healthy 
And wealth to one would bring, 
This man would live forever 
In a palace like a king. 


Why is woman always roasted 
For incessant talking? 

Well, the roaster has never heard Sherard 
When he comes in from Walking. 

He's nervous, timid and very good, 

Will not sign ]ietitions and never would. 

He's also quite learned, but tliis rhyme's not complete 

Until we mention the size of his feet. 

His gait was a bit unsteady 
And sense from his brain had fled. 
When he reeled on the Halls at 15 A. M. 
And with a "D. T." went to bed. 
Tefft— ^i^.^ ^^^^^ ^^.^^^j,^, ^p„ gtprnal Life 

Rut students do not use it. 

So he sells everything else in the medical line — 
Poor thing, why do tiiky so abuse it. 

He has a loving disposition 

Anfl a right pood set of brains. 

But we often ask ourselves the question, 

Does his beauty cause him pains ?

Eros — 


Hence ! ye everlasting idlers ; get ye gone. 
Is this a holiday? What! know you not 
That the silvery moon shines bright ; 
I must hold hands — I must to my love. 

[Exit Philario]. 

Fools ye are that hold such hands, 

As is the wont of mad Philario. 

I would but say some other hands to hold, 

Which bring the shekels ; a game is brewing in the air. 

What ho ! fellows come up a flight and see, 

I'll deal the cards and e'en open the pot. 

[Exeunt Onmes]. 

Scene n — Antonio's Room. 

I must not tarry long in this Canfield den, 
My love, sweet Cleopatra bid me come. 
I'll stay four deals and then on wings of love, 
I'll fly to her, lest Philario outstrip me there. 

By my troth, yes ; I count but time lost. 
To hear such a foolish thing. List to me. 
My eros-stricken Eros ; Philario was never known 
To win a maid; his hands are rough, his embrace 
Like a bear; so fear ye not for your damsel. 

[Exit Eros]. 


Antonio — 

Rosco — 



Forsontli I kimw not what to do. 
Shall 1 stay in, and chance a chip.

1 would the game was over. Antonio. 

1 love you well, and vou the rest: so 

\\ herefore do vou hold us here so long? 

What is it that you would do to us, 

If it he aught for the general good 

Set honor in one eye and death i' the other. 

I have a hetter pl.m di pass the nigh;. 

The moon shines hright : in such a niglit as this. 
When the sweet Eros did gentlj' kiss his love 
And she ilid make no noise, in such a night 
The Kerukes melhinks outstei)ped the hounds 
.■\nd sighed their souls toward the egg-nog howl. 

In such a night as this 


C\SC.\ — .\side 

tis no more hut foolish 
To stay indoors and lose our money to thee, .\ntonio. 
Let us hetake ourselves to Flood's, and there 
Pass the whirling hours as they sli]) .along. 

\\\ luv troth. I would another hand st;iy 
And yet I'll humor your vices and keep 
\'ou c(jmpany. Come gather in the rest. 

\'e gods! They're off and suspect me not, 

I'll dog their footsteps and ere the sight of il.iy. 

If but a chance does otier itself 

To gaol they'll wend their way.

Servant — • 

Yea, my master of the "wheels." 
Sit ye down in this pleasant seat 
And bide your time until milady 
Comes to make you welcome. 

Philario — 

My luck is in the ascendant. 

Surely must I, of all the lovers, 

Been born under a favorable star. 

'Tis thus I will outwit the handsome Eros, 

And claim my just and needed reward 

At the hands of divine Cleopatra. 

[Bell rings again— Eros is ushered in]. 

Eros — [Not perceiving Philario]. 

It must be — tonight the burning question 
Will I propound ; surely the fates will not 
Desert me now ; dear Cleopatra's manner 
Has been strangely warm of late. 

[Perceives Philario]. 

As usual the face of a fool in seen in places 
Better thou should be the wont; what would'st thou? 

Philario — 

Eros — 

I came to see the master of this house. 
My business is only with his private self. 

'Tis well you spake so well, else my heart 

Would have been troubled with a jealous hate. 

The servant has informed me that many a time and oft, 

You asked for Cleopatra, and yet made love, 

A fervent, passionate love, to Cleopatra's maid. 

Out upon thee, Philario, yet stay, I did forget 

Your faculty for making love. You have earned 

Your reputation ; for Rumor, flying on the wings of gossip, 

Has branded you as one, who in one short stretch 

Of night, made love to five damsels. 

And with equal fervor in each instance.

'I'hat will never ])lease and never draw a laugh. 

Why e'en in old Tarheel State I once saw 

Philario displeased and perforce he has 

Not hoth hands, hut only one, around a ladv's helt.

At P'iood's do meet tonight. 
P>y si)ecial invitation are you re(|uested 
Kor oft. anon did you with manner mild. 
^■ct spirit lofty celebrate with our genial comi)any. 

Cato — 

Mv life of late has boiled little good for my 
Knjoyment. 1 thank you and will gladly 
.\ccompany you to Flood's — a good resort, 
Where princes oi the blood do consort. 
.\nil many Eves are wont to regale their time. 

[Enter Racoon.i], 

Racoon A- 

Cato — 

Eros — 


Racoona — 

Eros — 


Good even, gentlemen; methinks this meeting 
Is held as usual in planning to no good purpose. 
My lord Cato is ever deliberating how and when 
His house to forego; on some pleasure bent. 
To you, O! Cato, I address myself. Let it not be so! 
Herein you war against your reputation. 
And draw within the compass of suspect, 
The unviolated honor of your wife. 

Nay ; you should know fair mistress, mine. 
What I have suffered to bring myself to evil. 
For your good. My will is oft enough 
Sorted with your wish. Muse not that 
T suddenly proceed thus ; for what I will, 
I will and thus an end. Come let us go 
And take the foolish Philario along. , 

Yea, take young Philario with you. 
For indeed lie swore by his halidom 
That he came to see, not fair Cleopatra, 
But thyself. Oh Cato! Take him with you. 

I have no doubt you pride yourself; 

Your foresight is so good, but Fve changed 

My mind. Fll wait and bide my time. 

Until the fair young maid that you'd call wife 

Doth appear. Since butting in is my forte, 

I will sustain it. 

I had most forgotten 
The reason that did bring me here — I must 
Perforce tell you all; that'Cleo is quite ill. 
So go, young sires, follow in the footsteps of my lord, 
For Cato can lead you a strenuous pace. 

Foiled again, but next time will suffice; 

Art thou coming Philario, or wilt thou stay 

And enjoy the gloom of this empty chamber? 

Done to death by slanderous tongues, 
Was Philario that here lies. 

Deatli in guerdon of his wrongs 

(mvcs him fame in paradise. 

Yea. I'll fiime — let's all to Flood's. 

[Ivxeunt Omncs]. 
Scfi.NK I — Flood's Resort. 

.Antonio — 

A slut niadiine — a slut maciiine for me. 
It was ever thus — 'tis my fate to win or lose. 
Though poker is my forte — some nickels I will chance. 
In this unlucky place and mayhaps win some. 


Go to, I see a soubrette fair — to her 
My pensive way will wend, and meet 
Better fortune than was mine tonight 
At Cato's homo. 


\'ou must c\cr tiuis. 
Can you not sit in this our company. 
Must you forego these bottles of i'abst — go thou 
And may your evil star shine out more ijrightly. 

Rosco — 

The blood is being heated in my veins, 

I feel an Indian wrestler — and can down 

Tlie strnngi'st of \nu here — yea, even (lUliuhiR). 

I'll tear his shii'l again and laugh aloud 

To see him rolling in llu' ihist with lu l|)K'sncss. 


Tr\' it and see— I'll chance \-onr strength 

.\nil it' \iin ])Ut nie dowit. I'll tre;U tlie crowd. 

[They wrestle — tlie others join in a general light- 
Casca with a squad aiie>ts all.] 

ScENK II — The court room. Judge Bara presiding. 

\>.\K.\ — 

( )riler — order in tin- court rodui, or I'll convict 

You all without a hearing. What is the charge 
Against these wicked looking mischiefs? 

Casca — 




Bara — 

Your grave and reverend honor, I do propose 

To make their rej)iitation suffer. Know you, then, 

That on a beautiful night — yea, last night. 

This rabble did assemble at the Flood's, 

And proved so quarrelsome that in general strife 

They did engage to make a hideous wreck 

Of Flood's — of others than themselves. 

What is your plea ? Who is your spokesman ; 1 lo ! 
Are you all guilty of this serious charge 
Or are you not — I wait for your defense. 

Most honored Judge — mistake us not our motive; 
It is quite true we fought — but disorderly we were n( 
This Casca here, a most unhonorable man is he. 
He came upon us unawares and put us under arrest. 
We did resist until the minion of the law 
O'er powered us — that is the tale, I swear. 

Who swears to this — if this be true ; 

Then Casca shall be fined and his position lose. 

We all swear, O! Judge. 

The prisoners are discharged — ^but heed ye this, 
Appear not brawlish — keep a peaceful mind. 
And Casca here I fine 500 pieces, and reduce 
Him to a cop — a common cop again. 

Scene II — House of Cato. 

Cleopatra — 

Philario — 

Good sirrah, Philario, my "beauty tho' but mean 
Needs not your praise with all its painted flourish ; 
Beauty is bought by judgment of the eye, 
Not uttered by base sale of Chapman's tongue. 
Know you the man to whom my heart is given. 
To dear Eros whose pleading has not been in vain. 

And so it is — and so it ever must be 

I lose each maiden, my hard luck sticks to me ; 

Good bye, sweet maid — I go to drink oblivion. 


ScENK III — Stiulciits' House — Eros' Room. 

Eros — 

Yea, good fellows my invitation is given to you. 
\'t'a. e'en to I'liilario, mv one-time rival. 
Tomorrow night — a uatermellon feast I give 
Ami all are invited. There amicable Rosco 
And peace-loving Gulielmtj can decide the strife 
With no guardians of the peace to say them nay. 
There Bustero can shake us with his laugh, 
And Antonio play solitaire to his heart's content. 
But more : a wedding takes place ne.xt week 
At the sign of the Cascade — come all of you. 
Cerevisia will flow freely. Give me your ears, 
\\'e']\ go to Tommy's now — the treats on me. 

Hail, hail the nohle Eros.

Baltijiore, i\Id., January 15, lttO.5. 

EiHToR-iN-CiiiEF OF 1905 Annual, Umw of Maryland, Balti.more. 

De.\R Sjr: — The two letters I have written you remain unanswered, and ycsterda\ 1 called 
in person to see vou at your office ; but found the office closed with crepe on the door. Again i take 
my pen in hand, being urgently urged by J. Mason, to drop you a third letter, requesting you 
with all the requestiveness at hand to hastily dedicate your book to the two surgically immortal 
men — The Mayo Brothers. Don't let John Annanias Hemmeter influence your decision, because 
he is only jealous of our onward strides toward becoming thirty-third degree members of the .A.. 
A. A. E. You can plainly see that Timothy Apple Ashby was not very confident of the truth of his 
statements or he would have bet more than an apple. I admit that in a joking way J. Mason 
strained the truth a trifle; but, you know, Mason always was rather inclined to be jocular — and, to 
tell the truth, I am a little bit so myself. 

Hoping you won't disappoint J. Mason and that a fourth letter will not be necessary, I will 
close this hastily-written note. I remain, 

Yours a la Mayo, 





This well I know — that once that I did wear 

A Frcshv's coat, a painted face, and exposed hose, 

With pointed toes. 
IKld iirismuT 1)\ (Inusrhty Sojilis with care. 
A l)rave (?) compatriot hung shivering at my side; 
His friijlitencd lace was sad to look upon, 

"S'et oft anon 
I felt a fear in my own body did ahide. 

That was in liHU-lOO?. 


So after 1 had reached and climbed over the wall 
Of first year tests, and was a fnll-tledged Soph, 

The merits of 
M\ learned liead bethought me as the only All. 
I hazed the greeny Freshmen ; did it well. 
I made the team ; 1 cut the clinics out. 

1 had a bout 
Or two. Alas ! tlie day ! on Miles I fell. 

That was in 1902-1903. 



Now leaping to the third year, I start to go. 

What's this? The Alkalvidal Chnic? Oh! No Tefft, 

You are bereft. 
I'd rather spend, to some good purpose, my dough. 
Some cHnics I did go to. I tried to conceal 
The fact I was no plugger : it was in vain. 

Yes, all in vain, 
For think ! I was flunked by Dr. Battledore Neal. 

That was in 1903-1904. 


This well I ken— that now some study I must undergo; 
I am a Senior. I can distinguish sciatica from > migrane. 

It's quite a bane. 
It's quite a hardship to remember all I ought to know. 
And here I stand ; a shiver runs down my spine. 
Will I pass?" Will they give mc a degree?' 

Is it for me? 
Hurrah ! Come have a drink ; the diploma's mine. 

It is 190.J.

He was a guileless college youth 

That mirrored modesty and truth, 

And sometimes at his musty room 

His sister called to chase the gloom. 

One afternoon when she was there 

Arranging things with kindly care, 

As often she had done before, 

There came a knock upon the door. 

Our student, sensitive to fears. 

Of thoughtless comrades" laughing jeers, 

Had only time to make deposit 

Of his dear sister in a closet : 

Then haste the door to o]3en wide. 

His guest unbidden, stept inside. 

He was a cherry-faced old man, 

And with apologies began 

For calling, and then let him know 

That more than fifty years ago, 

When he was in his youthful bloom, 

He'd occupied that very room. 

So thought he'd take the chance, he eaid, 

To see the changes time had made. 

"The same old window, same old view. 

Ha! Ha! The same old pictures, too!" 

And then he tapped them with his cane. 

And laughed his merry laugh again. 

"The same old sofa. I declare! 

Dear me ! It must be worse for wear. 

The same old shelves !" And then he came 

And spied the closet door. The same — 

"Oh. mv!" A woman's dress peeped through. 

Quick as he could he closed it to. 

He shook his head. "Ah. ha ! The same 

Old game, \-oung man. the same old game!" 

Would vou my reputation slur.''" 
The youth gasped: "that's my sister, sir!" 
"Ah !" said the old man, with a sigh ; 
The same old lie — the same old lie!"

GOOD MARNIN DENNY, Oi see yer Ijusy wid a paper, so oi'l jest bid ye the time a 
(lav. "The top of the day till ye. Larry," ye'll not do nothin of th; koind ; ye'll sit 
diion and listen till I rade ye the lether me hny Danny sent me from the big scool he 
goin ta in Baltymoore, tis the deel a larnin and fussin tlie lads been thro; its a dockter he's 
a goin to be. "Ye tell me so." "I heard ye say he was a warkin at somethin," guess its a 
good tr^de as any now a days, but they don't all work at it. What lams it, bad cess tie them — 
theres a lot of them goes into the insurance business and sesighities. "Egoy yer roit Larry," 
thars a hape of them phat turns to rale Inisiness men, but about the sesighities, me boy 
Danny is doin somethin wid wan oh them er thar been doin it tiee him, its some sacret order 
caled tlie "Elevation of Friends." He says its only them phat has blue blood can get in. He 
knows a lad he writes has "Methylene Blue" in his veins, and he one of the laders. 

Beded Denny yer boy'Il climb tiee the top if yer monnie hangs out. Now yer shoutin 
Larrv. tis the monnie end i.m it phat plays Hell wid a man jinin chibs and struttin around 
plavin jude whoil the ould folks are scratchin hnles in their head trion to make end mate. 
Phat's that sosighitie he's talkin about? He calls it a froturnety, when ye jain they take 
)-er cloths all off and everything from ye, and before yer thro yer confidance and hope in man 
is gnan with them. Thev made him ate a coople of mostard plassthers, a few spanges and 
wan fellow tried to shove a hair brush down his throate, but their wasent any foom fer it, 
then he fel thro a hole in the finer, when he wcjke they grabed him by the fist and said yer a 
"Royal True Knight." He says a fraternity makes a lastin impreshion on wan. He was at 
a banquet and saw a lad from Virginia puttin lumps of chase in his coffee, another was cov- 
erin his olives wid sugar, he says the singin was mellow, and the spaches tore the air inta 
ribbons, so ach wan got a pace for a sooveneer. 

He writes home that there was an explosion in wan of his wark shops; a fella was bilin 
alkehal to get the water out, when he paked in w id a lamp, and the hull thing blowed up. 
Was he hurt Danny, sure he dident say, but its not the gettin hurt, its the loss of toime and 
material. Thev rave abnut they have o\'ery api)liance to patch a fella up if he gets hurt, but 
when material is destroyed it costs money to replace it. He said he neuer saw so many men 
of the same moind before, they all wanted to get down to the ground finer to bring up help. 
Wrii fella took the windy route. There was a !)ra\-e lad jjy the name of Stewart who ran 
before the bunch — to save them. He tells me there goin to ha\'e the colger bovs An- 
napolis wid them be gad: if that the case the Coronel will are them doin pack drill if they 
miss lecktures, and the Secretary will have a fierce job kapin the wemen af the "Parade" 
ground on the courner. Larry there's part of this lether 1 can't rade you. He writes ten 
pages to ask me wan thing and if I don't send it to him at onced, I'll have to rade ten more 
in a couple of dais ; so good day, be sure and come again soon, eh.

WHEN CASTING about for a suitable subject on whicli to write I was much perplexed 
but finally bethought me that perhaps I could not do a better service than to sketch 
in very brief outlines the characteristics of an ideal physician. Let me write you, 
therefore, as aspirants for the realizations of this ideal. 

Few of us, perhaps, at the close of our lives will be able to say that we have realized our 
ideal, unless we have a high ideal, the trajectory of our life will never have risen to any noble 
height. "Hitch your wagon to a star," says Ralph Waldo Emerson, "even though vou fall, you 
will more nearly reach the firmament than if you had never made the attempt." 

The physician may be regarded from three points of view : First, his personal life ; second, 
his professional life, and third, his public life. 

Personal Life. The ultimate basis of esteem is personal character. Wealth for a time mav 
lend its glamor; intellectual attainment for a time may dazzle the judgment; power for a time 
may achieve apparent success ; but when the testing time comes, as come it must to every man, 
when some great temptation to do wrong confronts him, wealth and intellectual power are as if 
they were not. Character is the one thing that tells in this life-and-death struggle. Having that 
you will win the fight and be crowned with the laurel of victory ; wanting that you will succumb 
defeated and dishonored. The struggle may be a public temptation, known of all men, and if you 
fall, your fall will be like that of Lucifer, or may be hidden in your own breast — known only to 
God and yourself — but if you will win, the victory is just as great as measured by the eyes of 
Omnipotence, for a character has been saved and strengthened, a true man has attained his 
growth. It is due, I am glad to say, to this prevalence of high character that our profession 
has won such a lofty place in the esteem of the public at large. Its purity is almost never im- 
peached. Remember, that every time you are alone with a female patient in your consulting room 
with every eye barred out, she gives her honor into your hands and in turn you place your 
reputation unreservedly in hers. A whisper will destroy either of 3'ou. In my opinion it is the 
highest tribute that can be paid to the character of the profession and equally to the credit of 
our patients that this mutual confidence is so seldom abused, and the tongue of scandal is so 
seldom busied with noxious tales. 

When you remember that there are over 100,000 physicians in this country with daily pos- 
sibilities of wrong doing, is it not marvelous that this sacred trust is so jealously conserved. 

Greatness of character finds its best expression in kindness. To no one are so many oppor- 
tunities for this fine trait given as to the physician. In the hay-day of health and happiness 
he is not needed, but when sickness and weariness and woe come, when the bread-winner may 
be taken, or the loved mother's gentle life may be in peril, or a sweet, little child, in whom is 
centered all the tenderness of unbounded love, is lying ill, and death seems to dog the doctor's 
footsteps ; then the trusted physician, wise of head and kind of heart, is, indeed, a welcome visi- 
tor. Then can his sympathetic voice bring hope, then can the thousand and one acts of thought- 
ful kindness bind to him for life the anxious hearts looking to him as the messenger of life. Often 
a kind word is better than medicine. 


Manners make the man. The ])orc has no place among us. Tlic physician should never be 
the fo]) but alwavs the .ejentleman. Never unclean of clothes or speech, but always neatly 
dressed and so careful of his words that he need not ask, as did one of (k-ncral Grant's aides. 
"There are no ladies present, are there?" "Xu!" was Grant's stinging reply, "but there are 
several gentlemen." Soiled linen and unclean niils arc as nuich condemned by Antisepsis as they 
are by decency. The flavor of stale tobacvo sm.)ke about his beard and clothes will never char- 
acterize the itleal physician, nor will the indulgence in alcohol ever cloud his judgment or dis- 
gust his patients. 

Make it a point never to let your intellectual life atrophy through non-use. Be familiar 
with the classics. luiglish literature in prose and verse: read the lives of the great men of the 
past, and keep pace with modern thought in bjoks of travel, history, fiction and science. A 
varied intellectual life will give zest to your medical studies and enable you to enter, not un- 
e(|iiii)ped, inti) such social intercourse as will be;^et you friends and will relieve the monotony of 
a ])urely medical diet. Let nuisic and art shed radiance upon your too often weary life and 
find in the sweet cadence of sound or the rich emotions of form and color a refinement which 
adds ])olish to the scientific man. 

I suspect that the next characteristic of llic Ideal Pliysician will meet with a ready assent. 
Marry as soon as you can support a wife. Hut choose wisely and not too hastily. .A bachelor doctor 
is an anomaly. He cannot fully comprehend the hopes and fears and desires of parents. He knows 
not the lions in the path of childhood. Imagine, if you can, some sweet lassie confiding to him 
the symptoms of a liearl disease that digitalis cannot cure. 

The ideal ])hysician is a good husband and a good father, and .so will he enter into the 
lives and hearts of parents and children; not as a stranger, but as one who can jiartake of all 
the'tr emotions, because he has felt the same joys, partaken of the same sorrows, loved as they 
have loved, and it mav be, dnink to the dregs the same cup of loss. 

But the ideal doctor lives also a sjiiritual life. You gentlemen will have to ileal with the 
entrance and the exit of life. You must often ask yourself what and whence is this new ego that 
is born into the world: whither goes the >])nit wlun it (piits this tabernacle of flesh, which it left 
to moulder and decay. The tremendous problems of life and death are daily put before you 
for solution: you cannot avoid them if you would: they are forced ujion you by your daily 

As man to man, may I not ask you to give them that consideration which befits the high- 
est problem that can be ])resented to any human being. That this life, with its hopes and its 
joys, its diseases and its disasters, its all. is denied alike by connnon .sense, by rea.son, and by reve- 
lation. He is the best ])hysician who lakes account of the life hereafter as well as the life that 
now is. and who not oidy heals the Ixxly but hel]is the soul. Let your lives, therefore, be thor- 
oughly religions, religious in your inmost soul, though often you may be denied its customary 
outward observances. Then shall character, which was ni\ first postulate for our ideal physi- 
cian, find exi)ression in an ideal altruistic life. 

Professional Lift'. The ideal physician is a member of a learned guild. He should be above 
petty jealousies and tricks of trade. True, he lives by his profession, but he who practices for 
gain is only a hireling anil not a true shei)herd of the sheep. If yon would attain, therefore, to 


this professional ideal, you must be a constant student, keeping abreast of their scientific progress 
of which, in your community, you must be the chief exponent ; you must not be satisfied with the 
knowledge which you now possess, but you must read, especially the medical journals, or yon will 
be left behind in this da)- of rapid progress. You must kniow not only your own language, but 
must be familiar, at least by a reading knowledge, with French and German, and if possible, 
with other tongues. He who knows two languages is twice the man he was when he knew only 

You must not only be skillful, but careful.! have observed a few mistakes made by profes- 
sional men, and in reviewing them I can see that for every one made by lack of knowledge 
and skill, two at least have been committed by haste or want of care. With all our varied 
instruments of precision, useful as the}' are, noLhing can replace the watchful e\e. the alert ear, 
the tactful finger and the logical mind, which correlates the facts obtained through all these 
avenues of information and so reaches an exact diagnosis, institutes a correct treatment and is 
rewarded by a happy result. 

Be careful in your relations to your patients to deal with them conscientiously. In no other 
calling is the amount of service to be paid for committed absolutely to the judgment and con- 
science of the person who is to be paid for his services, whether you shall make few or many 
visits is left to your discretion and honest judgment. Sordid motives may occasionally lead to 
the giving of unnecessary attention. But again it is a glory of the medical guild that very few 
physicians betray this trust, and those who do quickly lose their professional standing. Watch 
yourselves jealously in this and never let the greed of gain dull the fine edge of professional 

You will be the father confessor to many a penitent. Family skeletons will be unveiled to 
you alone. The conscientious duty of professional secrecy is given, I am proud to sav, into not 
unworthy hands. True, physicians are sometimes too lax in the repetition of petty gossip, but 
the profession as a whole is worthy of the confidences so freely given. Be careful, even to 
reticence, of any betrayal of this trust. Better suffer misconception and unmerited blame vour- 
selves than betray your patients. 

Be brave men. Your fathers were brave men. When pestilence stalks in the streets and 
contageon lurks in every chamber of illness, where have the doctors been found? Fleeing from 
danger with the frightened multitude? Never! If you wish to find them you must seek in the 
crowded tenements, in the hospitals and everywhere where the danger of disease lies. There 
you will find them cheerfully tending the sick, facing disease in the midst of its victims and 
seeking, even in the bodies of the dead, the knowledge that will make them master of the 

War has given us many fine examples of personal bravery, but pestilence has bred its many 
quiet heroes who have gone about their daily duty, simply, fearlessly, devotedly. No granite 
shaft, no enduring brass may mark their last resting place, but the Recording Angel has dropped 
a tear, blotting out their faults, and has written their names high in the roll of fame. 

In your professional relations never forget to be charitable. The best patients you will ever 
have will be the grateful poor, and vour hearts will often find a sincere and grateful glance better 
])aymcnt than any gold. In vour relations with other physicians you will find many opportunities 
for that same brotherly kindness which is so beautiful a characteristic of our guild. .Always 


extend to other physicians and their immediate family the courtesy of faithful attendance with- 
out pecuniary riturn. Avoid the potty jealousies which, I am sorry to say, not seldom estrange 
physicians from each other. Always liclieve the best motive unless vdu know the worst is present. 
Never say an unkind word of a brother doctor when you can utter a kindly one. Try to be just 
even to those who are unjust to you. 

Public Life. In most communities, especially in minor towns and villages, the doctor is one 
of a small circle of educated men. His scientific studies make him familiar with many public 
problems, especially those concerning sanitation, the water supply, the prevention of epidemics, 
the preservation of public health, the problems of school life, the fostering of a proper athletic 
indulgence, the management of prisons, the care of the feeble minded, the insane and the poor. 
On all of these questions you must make your voice heard in the community in which you live, 
or else you will give them over to others less qualified than yourself, and only mischief can 

No one, perhaps, is more of a lender than the physician in the various philanthropic enter- 
prises of the (lav. These arc closely allied in many respects to the topics just mentioned, and you 
will be on boards of directors and managers, and trustees, where you must bring your influence 
to bear for a wise outlay of eharitable gifts and civic appropriations and for harmonizing the 
antagonistic elements which too aiu-u ])roduce discord and confusion. If you combine the quali- 
ties which I have sketched for the ideal doctor, you will find that men will easily recognize you 
as wise leaders whom tlr.-y will be glad to follow. 

Mv best wishes for you is that you may realize in your own lives these characteristics of the 
ideal physician. It will matter little then whether your life be long or short, for the proper meas- 
ure is not how long but Iwiu it has been lived, and if you attain to old age. when the hairs 
whiten and the crows' feet begin to show, when your natural forces are abated, you will then 
not be alone in the world, but have honor, love, obedience, troops of friends, and one Friend 
above all others, the Great Physician ; and when you pass from this life into the next, then shall 
you be greeted, not only by this one great Friend, but by many from whose i)athway you have 
[)lucked the thorns and briars of this earthly life; many whom, through the devious jiaths of con- 
valescence, you have led back to perfect health, to home, husband, father, mother, and children; 
and even if you have not been able to stay the hand of the grim reaper, those, too, will greet you 
whose last hours you have soothed amid the pangs of death.

"Write me a grind," the cilitdr said. 

As he sat in his office chair. 
"Write mc a grind," again he said. 

To the editor in his lair. 

"Write it aliont some Freshmen, 
Junior or Senior, Sir, 

You know them by the score — 
But without taunt or personal fiing. 

For ril have no one feel sore." 

Then each one with his might began 
To fulfill this mandate new ; 

But soon, having tired, they each replied 
" 'Tis a thing I cannot do." 

So, kind reader, if within this list. 
Your name, jjcrchance, you find, 

"Tis the fault, not of the editor's staff.

Here's to the stately medicos, 

The Class of Naughty-Five ; 
Here's to the future patients 

Their crafts will keep alive. 
Here's to the tiny printed ^ 

We find upon each sheet ; 
Here's that it will ne'er be used 

Save in disease's defeat. 


Here's to the sorry solemn air 

Each pinched and long-drawn face 
That each staid medico must wear 

In carrying the M.D.'s grace. 
Here's to the dreamer, who each day 

Of patients has a score. 
They fill the house from base to top, 

And crowd around the door. 
Alas ! 'tis but an idle dream, 

And soon he must awake ; 
When rent day comes with rapid strides 

Then he'll new lodgings take. 
Here's to the grim practitioner, 

Who sees a double woe, 
If one should have an angry corn 

He'll sure cut off your toe. 


A tiny scratch is apt to bring 

You lockjaw, fever, chills ; 
He'll drown ynur hopes in bitter stuff 

And fill you full of pills. 
He's harmless, and means well, no doubt ; 

You give for charity's sake. 
He's not of that mean temperanv.nt, 

A druggist's bread to take. 
And thus we go through all the list. 


Then tremblingly await 

The hour when one of Maryland's sons 
Will your poor pulses take. 

And with a hammer pound the chest. 
Then listen for your heart ; 

Auvl thump and pound you till you think 
He knows the blacksmith's art. 

But someone must be generous. 


So here's to that great soul 

Who like a holocaust is led 
To a "nied's" ambitious goal. 
Then here's to each and every "Med" 

( )f the Class of VM)r, ; 
May you the fair untarnished name 

(.)f "Maryland" keep alive. 
May Truth and Hope you all attend 

And guard you every day : 
And now to all the Maryland boys, 

God speed you on your way ! 


Ti 1 'I'lIEl-:, ( )! Alma Malcr mine, 
1 ever look with proud-lit eyes; 
\\ liii (lares to say tliat your fame dies. 
When tin lu hast lived such years as thine. 
The teaching which ani])ly thou hast dealt 
With almost gratuitous hand for mankind's good • 
To conihat hoarv Death in grim shroudy hood, 
For that alone toward yun luaits must melt. 
The love that loyal sons of thine 
Bore toward you in years long ago, 
I'Vom each their station, high or low ; 
That lii\e toward you sli.all ere he mine, 
llul not for this alone art thou so great: 
To me at least there is another thing, 
.\ thiiught that ntakvs me quite too .sad to sing 
In jo\ ful strains: though jollity's been my fate. 
I loved to roam with great and hounding steps 
.\liing ynur ihnroughfare, to meet a kindred mate; 
It always caused indescrihahle force to operate 
Upon my inward self: those were my precepts, 
I loved to listen to the eloi|uence 
Of Chew and .Mitchell and others too; their 
\\'as far more ])oleiit than an\ singer's ])oesy ; 
Their inlhuiice over nu' wa> immense. 
1 lo\ed to dream of the well-e<|ui])ped gymn. 
That our reverend Regents would generously give. 
The dream ne'er canu- true: it fell like water 

through a sieve — 
\\-\ the thought was, as to angels is a hymn, 
r.ut now that all the^e d.iys are ])ast 
There comes a solemn melancholic sadness, 
1 can ne'er again with daily steadfastness 
Cut mv lectures and croiii toward the last. 

W. W. il.. '0.-.. 



Do not worry o'er your failures, 

Hut dismiss them from yoiu- mind; 
And leave troubles' scorching city 

Distanced miles behind. 

And as you wield your paddle 

When down life's stream you wind 
May the music of Dame Nature 

Be of the Summer kind. 

If the rustle of good fortune 

Comes, like the flutter of a wing 
Of a bird that's right above you. 

And just about to sing — 
Mav you listen to ambition — 

Count the joys that it can bring — 
And never feel the bitterness 

Of regret, — nor of its sting.

THIS fraternity was nrganizod in the year of 1902. at ttie medical department of the Uni- 
versity of Ceortjia. The idea was first conceived and definite plans laid hy several very 
[)niminent literary traUriiity nun. and chief among whum was Brother Jesse Anslcy 
C.rittin. who was widely knnwn as a l\ap|ia Alpha. The fraternity soon sjiread and reached the 
colleges, and is now in a v^ry tlmirishing condition. Tiiis is a distinctly professional fraternity 
anil only medical men are eligililc U> memhershi]). It is in n(] manner antagonistic to literary 
fraternities. The Chapter hire was established in December of liHil nnder very trying circum- 
stances, but now has a very bright future before it. From the beginning the fraternity has been 
very conservative, but always keeping in mind those tilings which go to make up a good frater- 
nitv brother.

NO FRATERNITY man can. upon graduating fmrn his alma mater, repress that feel- 
ing of regret — the regret that comes most keenly when separating from friends and 
classmates, whom he knows are freely sacrificing self for the good of others. Good 
men, well chosen and living according to the principles emhodied in the fraternity emblem, 
heljjfnl because we are taught to become men, and among troul)les and difficulties and 
obstacles, iur "Talent de\'elops itself into solitude; character in the stream of life." 

It is the one great aim of our fraternity to keep the members sul)ser\ient to the prin- 
ciple she inculcates. In this, harmon^' is found; from harmon\' thus founded comes the 
success of a noble brotherhood. 

Previous to the year lSi»:!, there was no Greek letter fraternity at the L'niversity, and 
several attending the dental department during this vear felt the formation of such would 
be a step toward promoting a fellow f'^eling among dental students while at college, and 
that much assistance would be rendered during the years of college work — this feeling to 
be fostered and carried into after professional life, when great benefits must of necessitv 
grow from it to members indixiduall)-, and to the profession at large. 

On the afternoon of December :!rd. 1S9.'!, at the office of Dr. Grieves, the nucleus of 
l'*ta Chapter was formed by the abo\e gentlemen and a few students of the college. The 
charter was granted to Eta Chapter of the Xi Psi Phi fraterintw October, 1S9T, and through 
the efforts of its officers a diploma plate has been procured and a diploma will be issued 
to each graduating member of the fraternity. 

The Xi Psi Phi fraternity, as well as the local chapter here represented, has passed 
through a verv prosperous year. Many new men ha\'e been added to our number, and the 
combined membership is reaching far into the thousands.

IT IS A STRAXIjE, and yut withal, an inciintt-stahlf tact iliat nur school has never been able 
to boast of some very needed facilities. Many yonnmr and less important institutions are 
' iiiti;ri i\\ ini;' ns mi .'ill sides; nut because llicii' edncational facilities arc aiiv letter i fdrmir 
curriculum ciini|)ares favorably with any), but because we are handicai)i)ed by our lack, and a dire 
lack it is, of all things nccessarv fur that jihasc of cnllc5-e life which should he encouraged in 
every school, viz : ,\tliletics. 

Some (lav. perhajis. we shall he able to point with pride to a w ell-ci|uip]ied gymnasium, to 
a spacious athletic field and to ;ui athletic as.sociation constituting at least the majority of stu- 
dents at our I'niversity. We shall not complain of any lack of college spirit and will be proud 
of the teams sent out to re]ire:;ent our Alma .Mater. Athletics, properly iufhdged in. redound to 
the credit of the sciiool. What single factor has done more for Princeton, Harvard or ^'ale. if it 
be not athletics? More and more attenticn is being d'.'voted to the attainnu-nt of bodily perfection 
in our b?st universities; "nuns sana in coi'pore sano" is becoming more and more the trend 
of modern education, and \\h\ should not we share in this good work and expend some ])art of 
our encrgv in innocent s])ort? We nnist labor under many disadvantages, we must overcome 
obstacles that mav seem insurmountable; but the consummation of our ambition will bring all the 
more glory to us. 

Having spoken of our cr\ing ni'e(ls, U seems onl\ consistent to denote how we can. in a 
meagre wav, overcome tluin. Tlu' subject is a h.ickueyed one. since it has been dilated ujHin year 
after vear. in our .\miual. but evidently with no results. The athletic material in our school is 
excellent, and one not cognizant witli the actual status of affairs wonders why we cannot cope 
with equal footing against schools of established athletic reputation. W'e could do this if more 
interest was exhibited among our students. Xo one can afhrm an interest ]nontoting pure 
athletics is (Ulrimental. l.e't us therefore, have more candidates for our teams, in s])ite of our 
lack of proper athletic facilities ; more of us .should be willing to .sacrifice ourselves for the common 
good and welfare of our Alma Mater. Nothing but good can result. Once we have this in- 
crca.scd spirit instilled within ns. we need not fear for our athletic prowess. Let our motto be: 
"Hot.Ti:z EN A\.\sr." 










This is tlic most important hraiich of our atlili-tii-s, and n<i ilmiljl the most popular. The 
past year saw i^nc of the best teams put out by dur scliool despite its dishearteuiiifj finish. Ft was 
a comparatively H<jht team, averaging only 158 lbs., it had to cope against teams its superior in 
weight and e.xiierience, and yet the record it made is mn- \\i' mcd mu be ashameil of. "Para passu" 

it is Iml right tci slate that we had to travel to reaeii n'lr jjraeiice grounds. 

We defeated ('jallandet in our o])ening game and did it so thoroughly that no doubt as to oui 
sujieriiiritv over the W'ashingtnn school can exist. < )ur second game was unfortunate, for altliough 
the ])laving was altogether in our favor, knowledge of the details of the game won the game for 
St. Johns. This defeat disheartened the team somewhat and in unr next game Cnlumbia L'ni- 
versit\- tied us. In our next gamv we easily defeated .\1. A. L'.. and that des))ite the fact tliat 
man\ concessions had to he made. < )n election day we met the Maryland .Medical College and 
after eliminating mo>t of their hone tide ( :) players det'eated them. The game ])roved costly, 
since several of oin- i)est men were injured and at a time when the\ were most needed; for we 
were now readv for our Xorthern trip. We therefore, hardly e\|)ecti'd to make a good showing 
against rivals in the .Xortli. The first game was played at New i'.runswick. \. j.. against Rut- 
gers College. The writer di.stinctly remembers how apprehensivel\- the team eyed the well built, 
lustv Rutgers' rei)resentativcs just infore the game. We went into the game witli almost no 
doubt as to our defeat, but with a "do <ir die" spirit. .\nd this sjiirit proved ])otent, for after 
the final whistle we realized that we had .proved victors over an institution proud of its athletic 
honors. Very nnich imi)ressed were we after viewing the Rutgers' trophy room. an<l tiuding 
out that we had defeated a team that had often put a featlur in its ca]) hy ilefeating W'est Point, 
New Yi>rk I'niversitv, Haverford. ^iwathmore and'ayette. ( )ur game with Xew York Uni- 
versity having b;en cancelled by that team at the last moment, we next locked horns with the 
strong { )range .\thletic Club. We were outclassed in weight and ex])erience. for tiiat club is 
composed of ex-star varsity nun, and con>ei|uently lost the game. 

The most imixirtant game of the year was now api)roaching and we were in a condition 
that boded little gonrl. For many seasons we had met and defeated Johns Hopkins, but our Water- 
loo was at hand. If the team had only been as equal to the occasion as our enlluisiastic rooters, 
the result would have been far different. Hopkins i)Ut out her strongest team, drawing largely 
upon its medical department and procuring men who have made tiieir mark in other big scliools. 


Outweighed, handicapped by injuries, we fouglit every inch of ground, but it was of no avail — 
we were beaten by a superior team and beaten fairly. It was a disheartening finish but we can- 
not win every year. 

The following is a summarv of games played :

With apulogies to Milton. 

In lull 1 was — I swear it is no lie — 

A land of woe. with neither sea nor sky; 

Foul hissine; demons from all corners ponred. 

And hunj^ry fnes from rocky ca\erns roared. 

Around I saw great sturdy sinewy men 

Stand in a row — grown strong with constant toil. 

From years of standing, on Hell's sublime soil. 

The first was Rrent, great from his birth. 
Of mar\ellous strength and wondrous girth ; 

\iii| then st 1 Carnal, hv nf pDudrnus weight. ' 

With 1)1 )dy lithe, with brisk and tiimble gait. 

'Phe next was yinniger Messmore, who appeared (juite coy, 

He tied to dismal regions while yet a boy; 

The fourth was Revell, he of "black-eye" fame, 

.\ccustomed he to hellish fumes and Hame. 

Then came Da\ is, whose uncle forbade 

Him to play: yet a player he made: 

There stood the elder Messmore, he of yore 

A brilliant hero of Varsity lore. 

'Phc seventh. I'ank by name, 

Whose smile's always the same : 

The eighth was Stone, he of might and main 

In brawn a giant and of subtle brain. 

Then Sloan came from a southern state 

Tci miss his lecture was his fate; 

Bill Hahi was there from a far ninlhcrn land. 

Stravcd to this i)lace : he lo\ed a hotter strand. 

|)(i nut fnrget Baughman, of monstrous make. 

Who when a babe was fed on milk :md c.ike. 

Gibson a lover of fair women was here. 

He always did love to have handsome girls near. 

Bowie and Chaney with others, in this ])lace. 

To mention their names would take a heap of sp.icc. 

Nine weary nights I spoke no single word; 
I swear 'tis true, though it may seem ;d)snrd. 
.\t last my vexed mind to i)cace I brnught, 
Such towering men were here: thus I decided, 


A football team we'd form if they're so minded. 
Then up I rose in all majestic height 
And I screamed with all my royal might; 
"Carnal, Hala, Brent and all ye braves. 
Would you remain in Hell eternal slaves ? 
Why ! we would make a record breaking 'leven. 
And win us back our long-lost glorious Heaven. 
With Gibson here to manage our great team 
We'd leave this place, and our pardon redeem : 
I'll teach you all I know of football art. 
And then from wretched Hell we'll all depart. 

Full many an hour, we practiced day by day. 

Perfection we'd reach before we'd play ; # 

The place of center Messmore younger, well did fill. 

"Toddy" Sloan called his signals with a veteran's skill : 

Davis made a guard of ready hand, ; 

The other Revell could all withstand. 

The tackles were all in sooth, a mighty pair, 

Carnal, Messmore elder — let their foes beware : 

Both Brent and Blank played well at end. 

Each knew his place how to defend. 

A better half-back nowhere could be found ; 

Stone was like the wind in covering ground ; 

Bill Hala hit the line in whirlwind style. 

And Baughman punted over half a mile. 

Such was the team that I with care selected 

To win back Heaven, my hopes on it erected. 

So on we ru,shed and in a bitter plight, 

When lo ! the darkness changed to welcome light. 

And from afar we saw the gleam of Heaven, 

As we sped on a great and brave eleven. 

Now were we all before Heaven's paradise, 

I shivered ; 's death — and rubbed my weary eyes : 

Alas ! 'tis sad that in my greatest glory. 

To an end I must bring so strange a story. 

Alas ! Ehen ! For I can nothing tell. 

But that in space I fell — and fell — and fell ; 

And landed strangely not in Hell — in Hell, 

But on the floor; I gasped, I raised my heavy head; 

There stood the alarm-clock, the tyrant at my bed. 

Cerberus, '0.5.

BASKET BALL 1904-1905 

'I'liis liraiich (if .spurt was (iri^iiially started at our Alma .Mater in (.■xpcctation of forming 
a SciuiIktii liitercDllegiate Basket Hall League. For some reason tliis iilan fell througli and we, 
therefore, entered into an agreement to ]ila\ a series of three games with (Uir old rivals. Johns 
Hopkins, for the State elianipionshi]). It is hoped that next year the S. I. li. B. League will be 
formallv started and a new bond of friendlx rivalry spring up among Southern schools in our 

After a few preliminary games with minor local teams we met Hopkins in f)ur first game. 
Xot being verv well uj) on the new rules our team lost the game on fouls that sliould have been 
avoided. The score was "20 — S in Hoj^kins' favor. l)ut does not tell how hotly the game was con- 

We |ila\ed Swarthniore on lloor, January 2."i and ".i!, and managed to win one game — 
tile second one. This game was very encouraging to the team, since Swarthniore has an en- 
viable re|)Utation in basket ball. Tliere is such an intense rivalry between Hojikins and Maryland 
that on account of games plaxed with other teams are of minor im])ortance. In preparation for 
oiu" seconil game for ilie State Collegiate Championshi]) we met teams from the llaltimore .\th- 
letic Clul) — Defenders and I'lelvideres. and the practice thus accorded stood us well on the night 
of Februarv i'i. ( )n this night we met Hopkins and conclusively outplayed their team. The 
score was <J8-"J1 in our favor and made the race for the Slate honors more than interesting. A 
ncwsi)a])er account of this second game a])])eared as follows: "Tlie Maryland team was con- 
siderably stronger than in the tirst encounter between the two teams, and to that fact the victory 
was primarilv (\uv. With the score ll-l> against it at the beginning of the second half. Ho|>kins 
scored three goals in Td seconds. .Mar\land howevir look a brace and sl<iwly jiiled up a winning 

The lin.d game of the series was ])la\ed on .March 2. Never was better team work dis- 
|)laved. .\\ ihought the game would be very close, but from the start Hopkins was swept off 
its feet bv the brilliant jiass-work and goal throwing of our team. Three field goals and five 
points on fouls were all that Hopkins teau) eotdd get. while IH field goals and five points on fouls 
were i)iled up b\ otn- team. The victory was all the more great since we played on the Hopkins 
floor. Till' tinal score was .Maryland :>l-Hopkins 11. and clearly demonstrated our riglu to the 
Ini^^Ugiate championship of the State. Hopkins was forced to admit that our team was the 



best they had met throughout the season, and this is no little praise, since Pennsylvania antl Dick- 
inson had ben among the opponents of Hopkins. Our first venture in basket ball has been a suc- 
cess ; let it be duplicated next season. 

Next year if the Southern Intercollegiate League be formed we shall have to encounter such 
colleges as \'irginia. North Carolina, West Virginia, Western Maryland, St. Johns and Hopkins. 

The following men comprised the team : 

Bl.\nk Right forzcard 

HAr..\ (Capt.) Left forzcard 

Smith Center 

RiGHTON Riglif defense 

Tno.xrPSON Left defense 

Substitutes — Bare, Barton, Innsley, Brent, .Allen. Manager R. C. Carnal (05). 





An account of athletics at our school this past scholastic year would be indeed incomplete 
without some mention of the track and field work. After faithful practice at the cage the follow- 
ing relay team was selected to run in the annual games given by Hopkins University Athletic As- 
sociation, viz: Xorris. Matthews, Stone and M. Chane\. The team ran awav from St. Johns Col- 
lege in the mile relay. The track team was then sent to the Georgetown meet in Washington, 
February 2.5. The relay race with St. Johns again as our opponents proved unfortunate to us. 
Our first man fell and thereby lost almost half a lap — our second man gained some yards on his 
man, but when Stone, our third man, was put in the distance between him and the St. Johns man 
seemed too much to overcome. Stone was equal to the occasion however, and when he gave wav 
to M. Chaney. our last man, St. Johns had only about five yards lead. Chaney easily beat out 
his man and to all appearances we had won the relay race. The referee however sustained St. 
Johns in their protest and gave the race to them. Their protest was that our last man had fouled 
their man when passing him. 

The team will be sent to the annual spring games of the L'niversitv of Pennsvlvania, v.-here 
it will run against \'illanova. Gallandet, St. Johns and probably Western .Marvland. 

It is hoped that the proposed games to be held by our school this spring will materialize. It 
would be a start in the right direction.

Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note. 
Like our nniners. we never hurried. 

And all of the athletes were then half shot 
As athletics we solemnly buried. 

\\\' Iniried athletics at dead of night

By the struggling moon-heanis misty light 
Our last bottle we then were draining. 

Few and .short were the prayers we said, 

In enterprise we were lacking : 
But we cussed out the school and wished 
we were dead 

For we never had had any backing. 

We thought as we hollowed the narrow bed

( )ur|)rii\\ess was such we could stand at the head.

But one is certain, he's IkiuiuI to sleep on

Slowly and sadly we laid him down 

ITnhonored in song and story ; 
We carved not a line, we raised not a stone. 

He never was worthy that glory. 





IX 'J'lll". I'uU of 1903, at the suggestion of Professor Heniineter. a Musical Association 
was fiirnied, composed of a Glee Club, Mandolin and Guitar Club, and an Orchestra. 
On April lith, 1!H)4, the Glee Club gave a concert in Lehmann's hall, that to say the least 
was a grand success. The Club was ably assisted by H. Merrill Ilopkinson. M.D., a graduate 
of our L'ni\'ersity, and .Miss Jean Taylor, violinist. 

The selections rendered by the Club were of the highest order, and due credit should be 
given Professor Theo. lleniberger, a musician anil director of note, who under trying and at 
times discouraging circumstances developed a Glee Club whose efforts were greatly appre- 
ciated by the musical people of Baltimore. 

The proceeds of all entertainments given by the Musical As.sociation are turned over to 
ihc I'.ndowment Fund of the University, to promote the welfare of the departments. 

.\lthough this year opened with difficulty, yet the officers of the Association have tried 
to keep up the interest which was so manifest in the early part of the session. On Januarv 
2r)th, a smoker was held in the Law Building, and the evening was enjoyed by all present. 
Dr. J. \\. (^.ighuer presented a scholarly paper on "Music in Medicine," and the evening was 
spent in music and recitations by members of the .Association. 

The quartet, composed of Messrs. E. F, Moyse, 1st Tenor; W. R. Mclntire, --'d Teiior; 
X. G. llall, I'laritone, and H. F. Messmore, Bass, have rendered selections several times dur- 
ing the year at College functions, and also outside. 

The Mandolin and Guitar Club, under the direction of Mr. C. L. Zieglcr, have shown 
their ability, having i)layed for several societies of the city. 

It is hoped that the .Musical Association will not go out of existence, as it is the only 
organization at the University in which all of the departments come together for social

ANOTHER year has passed and our work done in that time speaks for itself. As each class 
graduates, many of our best men leave us, going into other fields of usefulness and en- 
deavor. Many will continue in the same tracks trodden while in our University ; while 
others will not only be seen, but known to be strong, sturd}- men, who stand fur might as well as 
right — men who will be leaders wherever found. 

Our numbers are reinforced each _\'car from the incoming classes. This year's classes havt 
done their share in an unusual way. Our ruimbcrs and strength have been increased ni all 
classes, until now we have the largest membership and strongest association since its founding, 
about eight years ago. 

The Bureau of Information, which was inaugurated in session 1003-'0-t, for the purpose of 
attending to the wants of the students, in respect to rooms, boarding houses, etc., was well pat- 
ronized this year by the student body. Another feature, added this year, was the handling of bag- 
gage. The work of this department has been highly jjraised by many who received its benefits. 

This year we have continued in group class work ; for Bible study we have more groups and 
a larger enrollment than in previous years. The .group studv is a success, inasmuch that manv 
classes have been formed, and meet at time and jilace convenient for each group, thercbv reach- 
ing more men. At the end of our liible courses, those who successfully pass examinations, are 
awarded a diploma, signed by the leader of the group, the President and Honorary President. 



The Mission Study class was led by Mr. F. lUirdoii ; it was very interesting, the leader having 
had eight years of experience in China, which was of great value to him in explaining the study 
taken up, "In the Hills of T'Aug." Mr. Burden has been with us for four years, and we 
have found in him a true and ardent worker. 

There is an increasing interest in Medical Missionary Work in our school. Dr. Willis Hotch- 
kiss, the great Soulli .\nicrican missionary, was with us in February, '04 ; also. Dr. W. J. 
Wandless, who has been in India about fifteen years, was iierc on January 24-5. .Anyone talk- 
ing with these men could learn in a short time where their greatest field of usefulness was. A 
Missionary Fund has been started for the support of a medical missionary, to rejiresent our 
institution or all the Baltimore schools of medicine in the foreign field. Our school supporting 
a missionary depends for success on receiving subscri])tions. We hope that those who do not feel 
it their duty to go will do what is in their power to make it possible to send one of our number 
to the Orient. 

With the increasing interest in athletics in uur Inivcrsity, our association has not been in 
the rear. It has done its part, and we are pleased U< mitc that some of our men are doing such 
fine work at the Central Association. For a long time our association has been in need of larger 
([uarters, and now we can say we have a new home, occujjying the whole lower llofir of the for- 
mer Calvary M. H. Church, southeast corner of Lombard and (ircene Streets. .Much credit is 
due .Messrs. Teft't and Roberts for their success in nnking arrantjenients with the faculty on Oc- 
tober -Ith, '01, for the use of these rooms, the faculty having boutjht this ])ro])(.'rty. but not com- 
ing into its possession until April 1st. Rev. Stevens, of the Calvary Cliurch. worked with us, 
so we were able to occupy the rooms from October, '01. There arc three rooms. One is used 
as a reception and assembly room, one for our reading room, which is equipijcd with literature of 
the day, games, etc. Some new pictures were bought, and the room is in good shape ; also there 
is a cook room, which is used to prepare good things when we have socials. The reading ro<im 
is open from 8 a. m. to (J i\ .m., and is an excellent i)lace to meet friends, study or to pleasantly pass 
time between lecture hours. These rooms are well patronized and appreciated. 

Our annual sficial to new and old students was tin- christening event in our new quarters, 
Calvary Hall, on October VMh. It was a success in every way. Prof. S. C. Chew gave an in- 
teresting address. Rev. J. .\. Allison and others gave brief addresses. Samuel Congdon, ini- 
])ersonator, entertained in a very jjleasing way. Professors Nealc and Cordell and others of the 
faculty were present. The largest number attended this recejition of any ever given by our asso- 
ciation. Two other receptions were held during the year, and were events long to be remembered. 
Mr. Robert Mitchell, chairman of the social committee, deserves credit for his good work. 

Dr. Howard .\. Kellv, on November 3rd, gave an informal social to a large delegation from 
the associations of the Medical and Dental Schools of Baltimore, at his home. No. lIDil Eutaw 
Place. About thirty L'niversity of Maryland men were ])resent. Dr. Kelly and Rev. J. Timothy 
Stone gave interesting talks. Dr. Ceorge Stebbins, of Northfield fame, sang two hymns, in his 
usual pleasing way. They were ""The Shei>herd True" and ".\ ]'>ird with a Broken Pinion." A 
collation was served, and all were well pleased with the evening's entertainment. .M.'io. on Janu- 
arv 21st, in the interest of missions. Dr. Kelly si'ut invitations to the same scIkxjIs, and those who 
were present were delighted with his hospitality. 


At the Sunday afternoon meetings we have been lavored with a number of speakers from 
the faculty. Some of the speakers were Dr. J. .Mason Hundley, who s]ioke at our first meeting, 
October 9, on "Personal Purity :" Dr. Hiram AVoods, en ( )ctober :5oth. Dr. Howard .\. Kelly 
was also a sp_'aker. The subjects have been full of experiences and interest to mcHcal men. and 
were appreciated by the large number who turuL-d out. 

A series of three entertainments were held in College Hall for the purpuse i if raising a fund 
to purchase a piano and other furniture for the use of the association. The tickets readil\- sold 
for one dollar each, and a good sum was realized. The talent was as follows : February 10th, 
concert. Prof. J. C. Hemmeter, ])ianist : .Mr. and .Mrs. J. E. Dickey, vocal duets: male quartette 
from University of AIar\land Musical Association, Dr. R. Merrill Hopkinson. barytone soloist; 
Mr. S. I. Salzman, violinist. March inth, lime-light exhibition. "Scenes and Life in China," by 
Mr. Frank A. P)Urden. April Tth. Mr. W. E. Ellicot Tyson, elocutionist: Mr. Jnlin j. Carroll, 
pianist: Mr. S. L Salzman, violinist. 

During the year our association was represented at the different conventions, as follows: 
February li. '04. Presidents' Conference, at Xew P.runswiek, X. j.. .Mr. Tefift : State Conven- 
tion, at Cumberland, Md., March, 'i)|, .Messrs. Burns and Bostetter, and the Summer Confer- 
ence, at Waynesville. X. C, .Mr. C. Wesley Roberts. At the Bible Institute, in ISaltimore. Janu- 
ary l:^-15th, we were well represented. ( )ur association also entertained two delegates from 
St. John's College while the\^ were attending this conference. 

Many of our members have much interest in the Charity Organization Society of this city, 
which is doing good work. This work can be carried on by students while attending to their 
outdoor patients. It gives men a chance not (jnly to work for themselves, but to broaden out and 
to lend a helping hand to the deserving and needy people in vicinity of our L'niversit\-. This 
work is a new feature in our association, and should be developed. There are great possibilities 
and need of willing hands to carr\- this through sucessfuUy. 

One word about the Students" Club, to be run under the association. The prospects are 
brigliter than ever for one to be estaljlislied ne.xt year. Let no man who is interested fail to 
make it known to the President of this .Association. Let us see what co-operation will flo. 

In conclusion, will say the work and standing of our association is gratifying, and while we 
have made a strong advancement in the ])ast, we are not satisfied with the present, and still push 
forward, with brighter hopes for the future. .At this time and place we wish to heartily thank the 
Facult\-, Calvary M. E. Church, and all others who have in any contributed or assisted in putting 
our association u]ion its present firm basis.

THE LABORS of the Class of 1905 are about drawn to a close. Three years of work, of 
anxiety, of anticipation, have stolen quietly away into the long vista of the past, leaving us 
to thoughtfully dwell on the experiences of those bygone days with feelings akin to the un- 

Pleasure and pain, hope and despair, great expectations and disappointments, have followed 
each other in quick succession through the college experience of many, and perhaps, most of us. 
Yet this is no new thing. It was ever thus since the wheels of progress began to turn, and will be 
till the last human cry is lost in the wreck of worlds. As a class, we are remarkable for at least 
two things : firstly, as to numbers, and secondly, as to "final perseverance." One of the largest 
classes the University has seen, and during the three years only three men have dropped from the 
ranks, — Speas, through financial embarrassment ; Kirven, through financial engorgement, and 
Saxon, through financial curtailment. To this number we regret to add the name of L. A. Arose- 
mena, of South America, who died during the Summer of 1903. As to numbers, the losses have 
been more than made up by men attracted from other colleges to our new and finely equipped Uni- 
versity. No less than a dozen have given old U. of A I. the preference, and will graduate with 
our class. 

This sketch will deal more particularly with the doings of the Class during the Senior Year, 
and will accordingly begin where the Historian of last vear left off. 

The Summer Session was attended by a larger number than usual, the advantages of which 
have been scarcely realized by the students. Thirst for traveling impelled a notable trio to en- 
gage as chambermaids on a transatlantic cattle-boat, and the three of them, — Woodward, Dial and 
McCann, — visited England, Scotland and France during the early part of the Summer vacation. 
We had the pleasure of calling on McCann, and after a few preliminaries, his roommate, Healev, 
passed us a box of twenty-five cent cigars — which we declined, on account of an uncultivated taste. 

"Were you seasick, Mac?" was the first question we sprang on him. "Not by a d sight," he 

answered. "The variagated quality of the perfumes gave us something else to think about, be- 
sides 'other things," " and Mac scratched himself suspiciously. Healey declared that Mac had 
poured such nerve-wrecking tales of the ocean into his ear, that he was compelled to take a half- 
pound pill of gtiita percha every night, to put himself to sleep. We regret to learn that Woody 
and Dick were moody and sick (this is a new joke, which we have had copyrighted). They were 
sick one day, and were hanging out adjacent portholes, when one of the other chambermaids 
sympathetically inquired of Dick if he were feeling weak. "No," he indignantly replied ; "I'm 


throw iiif,' it a> far as W'nddy." lUit Dick's oxpcricnci' in Paris with the little dark-eyed French 
])each" was the climax i)f his lia|)|)iiuss. "(iee," lie says, "wasn't siie a sweet little thiiijj. and she 
coiildn'l sjjcak a word of Fin^lish, either." antl Dick beams with delight. 

W'e all wonder if it would he a pleasant trip. Well, someone is said to have remarked to 
someone else whohearil it said to .-ini ither, the\ had told a friend, who told them that thev be- 
lieved the boys said they thon^ht the trip was rather pleasant. 

That the boys apj)reciate their annuals, es])ecially when they have paid for them, was fully 
demonstrated when they returned in October. During the Summer they had not received them 
as expected, and now- it was an animal or hlood, .\ number of boys secured theirs after making 
a dozen or so tri])s to the news stand and the olTice of the sli])perv individual who seems to have 
a faculty of not being at home. .Many have given up the search. Long probably luade a record 
number of visits, havini.,' worn out nine ])airs of good shoes and four pairs of rubbers pacing up to 
l-'ranklin street. In other words, l-ong walked many a furlong to bring along his bt)ok, which 
should belong to him. hut will be long longing. \\'liew I 

Running after the amuial reminds us of a littlj nnming ineiilent where Hush and Hotchkiss 
and another, uho^e name we |iromised not to dividge. had running "beat to death." So that 
readers ma\ have a detinile idea when this occurred, we luav sav it was between the beginning of 
our Freshman year and the end of our Senior year. The affair is a secret, but history demands 
thai facts he told ; so it is on account of conscientious scrujiles that we relate the story for the first 
time. The three of them were out strolling about rather late one tvening, when it became neces- 
sar\- to cross through the "Tenderloin" section well to the west, in order to reach home. Having 
reached a well-known street a little horde of toughs suddenly surrounded the innocent pedestrians, 
and demanded the nature of their business. .Ml three realized that they were suspected as being 
spies, but finally persuaded their captors that they were merely strangers who had gotten lost in 
the great citv. So they were allowed to jiroceed. Something hajjpened a moment later, which 
made the toughs again suspicious, and they pursued and again surrounded the sup])osed sleuths; 
and. after a \er\ short and ])ointed parley, a scrap began. Three against ten looked a little one- 
sifled, and after a few rounds, all three broke away, and began making siirinting records. The 
partv whose name we have not mentioned led by two necks, and struck a l.")ll ll-l(i cjjp. Rosie 
realizing how unnecessarv a stitT hat is in a race like that, allowed it to fall into the hands of the 
pursuers, and was aliU' to linisli the race in ".'.o:!. John was not distanced by any means, and made 
a verv creditable showing. The hat met a miserable fate, "and it was a brand new one, too." Rosie 
says. tearfidK. |ohu has changed his jilay-grounds since then, and is now King of the Harem. 

Tin- strength of the dental |irofession is plainly shown, when it was able to wrest Snyder 
from the whole L'. S. .\rmy. ( )ne would scarcely believe this, but the facts are plain. George 
has, on more than one occasion, ])roved that he is a hero. If. for instance, he, by mistake, extracts 
a Richmond — crown, root and all — he merely k)oks wise and calm, quickly bows the patient out, 
hides, and thus escapes a suit for daiuages. George has |)etitioiu(l the Dean to amend and revise 
"Ouestions and .\nswers." thus: 

O. — ( )f what use are Richiuond crowns? 

A. — \'erv u.seful as scrap gold. They should never he allowed to remain long in a patient's 


J. V. Jenkins is a man with the most profound business instinct of any person in the class. 
Just one instance showing this trait will be sufficient. During last Summer he took a mortgage on 
a man's farm in Virginia, in part payment for extracting a couple of mean little molars : and yet 
he comes back looking the very image of generosity, and cheerful withal. 

E. J. Jenkins represents the grey-haired dignity of the class. He has learned the names of 
the different-shaped hand-pluggers and excavators, has a patent way of folding non-cohesive foil, 
can cut rubber dam, and, in short, knows a whole lot about our profession ; for, don't you see, he 
is in [iretty good company. There is one thing about him, however, we might mention: he has 
a wav of saying what he thinks. This is not always best. In short, it is often dangerous. 

J. C. Allen, though onl}- with us for the last two years, climbed to the position of Class Presi- 
dent, a station which he has filled very satisfactorily. He has, of course, failed to please every- 
body ; but it must be remembered that Gabriel could not have satisfied us all. Jack has a love af- 
fair which would make good history if details were at hand, but they are wanting, and no one 
regrets this more than the Historian. His room-mate, Barton, has had a few adventures, but he 
has such a disreputable way of keeping things to himself, that he will have only himself to blame 
if his history is uninteresting. It is suspected that he has a lady friend at home, away up in 
New York State somewhere, and naturally it would not be right to tell what a great lady's man 
he is here. It might make trouble at home. 

We will now couple Hill and Edgell. What a team they make. Both show visible marks of 
overst'.nlv, having fallen in weight from two hundred to three hundred and ten pounds, approxi- 
mateh-. Hill is compelled to wear that famous dressing-gown to preserve a semblance of his 
former greatness, and Edgell's clothes hang on him like a union suit on a clothesline, or the way 
Edgell's overcoat hangs on Lester. Have you noticed it? Ah! jokes, thou art responsible for many 

McVane, Hill's understudy, is another inveterate plugger, having been known to sit up as 
late as ten o'clock on more than one occasion. 

Helms spent his middle year at the New York College of Dentistry, and we are glad to see 
him back, to graduate with our class. 

Waltman comes from a little country village, where he holds great prominence as a dealer in 
pork. Recently he cornered the market on heavyweights, and if we believe him, many of the pork- 
ers weighed seven hundred pounds. He thinks we are easy. This led Sparrow to hatch up pork 
stories, to the effect that he himself owned pigs which weighed in the neighborhood of half a 
ton. Sperrow has, of course, the spirit of the Southerner who hates to be beaten. Well, after that, 
the curtain was hauled down by their almost paralyzed hearers. Sperrow tells another tale of how 
he fell out of a third-story window in Wheeling during the Summer, and merely cut his feet on 
some glass. Observe, that naturally, his feet struck the ground first. He wandered down town, 
and was eventually gathered up by a kind-hearted cop, who tremblingly inquired of the night-robed 
traveler where he wished to go. "I want to go to Wheeling." wailed Sperrow. The kind-hearted 
cop at once guaranteed him an inexpensive night's lodging. 

Archambault is a striking character, — striking anyone who comes in his way. Good-natured, 
if rubbed the right way, and has a laugh perfectly remarkable. 


The bland Rabbi Rlatt, with his beard clipped, reminds us of when, as a Freshman, he could 
not permit "the clippers'" to relieve him of his whiskers, on account of his jjosition in the church. 
How he tried to carry allnv tillinss to the cavity by means of a spoon excavator, and heaven 
knows li'iw lie expected U) .i;et llie iiiercur\- there, is a perfoniiaiKe we will not forget in six hundred 

.-\. S. Ilriiwii lias lahnratory experience galore, but. being a stranger in the Infirmary, we 
have little to sav. We li(i])e. however, his history will imt have to l>i> written by our successors. 

( ). !,. \ (.'ocliraiie, e.\-rresickiit. diplomat, and Californian. l)i])lomats are born, not made, 
and a man must be an ade])! at electioneering if he expects to accomplish anything. With a 
novice it works something like a boomerang. Cochrane succeeds better as a student, and will 
stand higli at the finish. 

K. .">. C'ntchin. the tvpical Sonlherner. has led an industrious career, doing honest work, and 
pleiitN ol it. 

E. 1,. Davis is well-known as a |)heno;iienal sUideiU. lie has taken up medicine, surgery. 
<kntistry. and everything ajipertaining thereto, in all their varied branches and departments. His 
health has been so much shattered by such a strenuous course that we fear he may be ill about 
the Sth of .May. We leave him in the hands of a merciful faculty. 

H. .M. Davis, our selected Class ( )ralor. is a .Marylander. < )tie has only to look at his hair 
to know that he is a foot-ball player; but now he is wrestling with his oration, and is not doing 
anything rash enough to be recorded as history. 

Dean came all llie wa\ from West Viiginia after a diploma, and if steady ])lodding will get 
it. he has nothing lo fear. 

Dimock. is another plodder; li;is done a large amount of good. |)ractical work and study. Tie 
will do credit to Xova Scotia. 

The ver\ mention of Ktchison's name conjures u]) in one's mind a bevy of pretty ,girls. This 
last year lie lias played whist ten nights every week, and has won fifteen games out of every dozen 
plaved. .\ large, strong oak table in the centre of his spacious apartment is piled u]i with trophies 
and |)rizes he has won. He has also taken up music. 

Till' I'indon brothers belong u\> in \\\v England somewhere. Their greenest year was .spent 
at the 11. C. D. S. After their second year they swore they would never darken the Tniversity 
doors again ; but we obsirve they have recanted. Having a strong family reseinhlance. they have 
a |)ecnliar ailvantage over the rest of ns at roll-call. ]. II. can easily be \itu tempore J. W. 

I'".. W. Ff)ster, of South Carolina, has a history unique, and the present Historian feels alto- 
gether uneipial to the task. He is easily the sportiest sport in the class. Is a true friend of the 
ladies, even ])rescribing peroxiile in doses which would probably bleach. Did it bleach an>'. luh ? 
He is a noted student, and often works between meals, even going so far as to make his own 
Downey, and actually answer uji in I'rofessor Harris' quiz. 

Frew is the moral backbone and spiritual adviser of the class, .\fter wrestling with all the 
])rohlems of life, he has summed up the matter in these words: "Girls will be .girls." Yet he is 
cajiablc of greater things than this. His jiraetical work is excellent. Frew is not easily made 
angry, but Dr. Rosette put his foot in it when he asked hini if he were a Jew. 

Graham got his game leg suppled up this year, and Archie has had nothing to stumble over 
and fall out about ; nor has Sperow had a whack at him this year. He satisfied his Provincial 
Board during the Summer that he knew something. 

Hague is an authority on mosquitoes, and also knows something about girls ; but which is the 
greater evil he has not yet decided. "Experience," he says, "is a great thing, but too much of it 
makes trouble." There are other things we might mention, but we know he will pardon us if 
they are omitted, — yea, thank us! He is a great admirer of "Hawkins." 

Hand makes a specialty of calling on the ladies. He has it down to a science, and can give 
cards and spades to Woodward or Dial. As to work, he is a hustler, and will do well. We will 
get square with him for that bull-dog story. 

Hail, with his significant initials, comes from Rhode Island. He narrowly escaped being 
Class President, but Allen is to blame for that. He is President of the Musical Association, how- 
ever, and an editor of the Annual, to say nothing of his other attainments, such as artist, musician, 
ladies" man, etc. Nate is well liked in the class, but has been unusually reserved this term ; we 
hope it is nothing more than Senior dignity. 

Hildebrand has developed nothing worth mentioning, unless it is a slight inclination to work, 
which may pass away with time and care. That hat-pin which he had run through his hand last 
year seems to have domesticated him to a large degree. He may not need another for years. 

Plopkins has a history composed of 95 per cent, of work. The other 5 per cent, is the shortest 
road from home to college and back again. That translated into English means success. 

R. L. Hughes is a Baltimorean, with office experience, and consequently, a stranger. We 
wish him success if he can get it, but nuist add from our extensive experience that watching the 
Vulcanizer does not help a man put in a gold filling. Ask Barton if it does. 

J. J. Kenney, prophet, benedict, politician and sport, — the same today as when we were all 
little Freshmen, and he expected to be Class President. We are all dreadfully human, and J. J. 
is no exception. He has taken considerable interest in class matters, has done good professional 
work, and will be a credit to the class. 

Probably no one has taken a greater interest in class affairs than B. .\. Lester. His sacrifice 
of time and energy has been unstinted and freely given. He has an extensive correspondence 
with "Philendelphia," at least as far as he Is concerned, but no replies have been received. He is 
an editor of the Annual, and has good standing in practical work. 

Levy has not been forgotten since he sent the keg to the old laboratory. Long may he live. 

B. R. Long, the giant in theory, next demands attention. He has the real reputation of 
being a student, but finds time to do his duty as Class Poet. His close application has made his 
career barren in episodes, which might have made his history more entertaining, though less cred- 
itable. Therefore, we will have to bow him out and consider McCluer, a Virginian. 

Mac does a whole lot, but seldom thinks. When he does think, he evolves something like this, 
— a painful example. "Every homely girl sl-.ould strive to become pretty, and every pretty girl to 
become still prettier." Judge him from this. He will be remembered by the fine specimen and prac- 
tical work he has done. 

W. R. Mclntyre studies well, loafs well, sings well, plays well, talks well, acts well and eats 
well. What more can be asked ? But that beard, ouch ! 

J. L. JMcClung is plainly from West Virginia. He has play-grounds of his own, but we know 
nothing about them, but suspect that there will be man\- a heartbreak when he returns to his 
native hills. 

McLaughlin, the recluse. — the very embodiment of retirement, — comes next on the list. Still 
waters run deep, and this may be true of him. Apparently he is a man of good parts. 

K. W. .Miller is another man possessed of that modest reserve common to \'irginians ; but he 
is beginning to branch out. He afi'ords a .strong contrast to our friend, J. E. C. Miller. Jr., who is 
known as the buy detectivi'. ( )f course, detective work is ver\- useful in the dental i)rofession, but 
some little knowledge of dentistry should accom|)any it. His niottn is: "Xo work and all joy 
makes Jacky a smart boy. and he lives uj) to it." 

.Miller is also tinted fur his extreme views on temjierance and wnrldiy pleasures. 

Moffett, frnm the wilds of Texas, knows how to make crowns, and he knows his theory, too ; 
so that Texas will \k- pmud of him when he returns home. 

I'vles has attended quietlv to his routine work, and has thus bereft the Histnriau of much valu- 
able material. This is a matter on which to congratulate him. 

W. I 'rice sa\s necessit- knnws no law. Kill two birds with the one stone. .Vever give up a 
certainty for an uncirtainty. .Always be in two jjlaces at the same time. Graduate or bust. Stran- 
ger as he may be, Price has gotten in his practical work, and will make good when his shingle 
dangles in the wind. 

|oe Dunne is a man of ])roverbs, too. His favoritt' one is: "Never do today what you can put

return home a mere wreck of his former self from the effects of over-study.

Self ami W'llsli siemed iuse])arable. but the fatal day came, and now they live apart. They 
were transferred from the I'.. C. IX S. after their Freshman \ear. Still, we believe dentists are

Snivciv has .stood the test very well, as far as popularity goes, and especially so among the 
ladies. Success in his chostn ])rofession is assured when the ladies are on his side. He .should 
not allow them to charm him. though, as he did once, when he gave away secret ])ass-words 
and grips.

Harrv Wood has been seriously interrui)ted in his course by illness, but we are exceedingly 
glad to have him with us this vear, in s])ile of his indisposition. Harry lends nuich to the moral 
backbone of the class, and is a clever workman. 

Whisnant, after being out a mimber of years, has returned to graduate with us. His his- 
tory is. of necessity, short. 


Yacoubyau comes from the ?>. C. D. S., is a man of vast learning, — especially on theological 
subjects, — and we would wish as much for him in dentistry, only we fear his ground work was 
defective, for which he may not be to Itlame. 'In time Dr. Yacoubyau will be O. K. 

Cupid got in some work among our boys, and two of them became benedicts. Otto Nase 
brought back to Baltimore a blushing bride to share his joys and sorrows, and while congratu- 
lating him we may do the same for L. R. Brown, who, during the Christmas holidays, brought 
to a climax an affair bordering on the romantic. Both couples have tht- best wishes of our 

Steinbeck, Horton, McFadden and Holliday were transferred this year from the Univer- 
sity of Virginia to the University of Maryland. They have all become popular in the class, partlv 
because they have exhibited such good judgment in selecting an up-to-date institution from which 
to graduate, and partly because of tlieir affable manner and good fellowship. 

Cherry was transferred from Tuft's Dental College. He has made decided progress towards 
housekeeping. She said "yes" when he asked her. 

Riley also came from Tuft's, but he will have to tell his own history. 

C. H. Skaggs has been practicing a number of years, as has Dr. MuUins; and now both are 
after diplomas. For some time Dr. .Mullins did not miss a lecture; then, after a wliil*^', he dare not. 
He was sorry he started out so well. 

Lamb, transferred from the 1!. C. D. S. this year, has an abnormal weakness for the ladies, 
but gives them only what time he has between meals. Holliday taught him Imw to shoot crap. 

Dennis came to us this year, appreciating the value of a l'niversit\- of .Mar\land diploma. He 
drummed up his patients at Sunfla\--school, and got a goodh niinilxr (if them. W'e leave him in

Our feeble attempt at history is here ended, and we trust everything said will be taken as 
it is meant — good-naturedly. We have purposely avoided harsh criticism, and only regret that 
space forbids a more detailed and comprehensive review of every individual. 

As a whole, our class has held its own with its predecessors, considering the difficulties en- 
countered. We have all seriously felt the break in our course owing to tlie t.gring down and re- 
building operations, during which we were largely tleprived of Laborator_\- and Infirmary; but

IX CI1I<( ).\ICU.\( J the future doini^s and sayiny;s (chietly sa}infjs) of m_\ classmates, images 
might be written and hours spent in dilating upon their manifold attractions, beauties and 
accomplishments, hut the space allotted forbids such a procedure, and I imagine it will he suf- 
ficient to state, as the members of the Class well know, that most of them have spoken or can 
speak for themselves. So in submitting the little eflfnsion the writer has no other ajjologies to make 
if he has neglected to note some im])ortant facts : but would add for the benefit of those not so well 
ac(|uainted with the Class, that as there is one glory of the sun, another of the moon, and one of 
the stars, so even does the glory of the Class of of Xaughty-Five outsiiine the most effulgent rays 
f)f any previous graduating Class. 

After five years of steady, strenuous toil at the chair. I decided to visit some of my class- 
mates, having received many |)ressing invitation-; to do so. Cou|)led with the thought that per- 
haps the relaxation from work ;md ,i change of scene would htiutit me. ,inil as my inin<l reverted 
to student davs, I felt, to ipioir l.ougfellow: 


"A feeling of sadness and longing 

Which is not akin to pain, 
And resembles sorrow only 

As the mist resembles the rain." 

First going to New Oxford to see my old friends, J. E. C. Miller, and the modern Ananias, 
Synder. Arriving at said town at dusk, I put up at the inn, the natives call it THE HOTEL. 
The colonel is well thought of, he being the hero of many wars (mostly jack-pot poker). Calling 
on the valiant Colonel, he invited me to dinner.wliich I declined, fearing he would help me to a 
few kind ( ?) remarks, as I had eaten alongside of George for two years and did not hanker for 
any such favors. Rufe, George's brother, told me he had been doing a $.5,()0() business previous 
to George's advent to the office, but of late they had much leisure time to themselves, and had 
taken to counting fl\- sjiecks on the walls, but that when the summer boarders arrived they hoped to 
do better. Aliller was their laboratory man, but 1 failed to meet J. E. C, as he had gone down 
to the corner an hour previous to get some "suds," and did not return before I left. 

Journeying up through Canada, I happened to sto]3 at a little hamlet in New Brunswick, and 
having some time to spare, decided to look around a bit. Approaching the local ])olice force, 
consisting of one uniformed man, to make some inquiries, I was surprised to find that the man 
encased in blue and brass was my old classmate, Graham. After a friendly chat, he informed me 
that there was a medicine show holding forth in the suburbs, and gave me directions for reaching 
the spot. Upon boarding a trolley I was met by Lester, who ])rom])tly pocketed my nickel v\ ith a 
sickly grin. His conscience seemed to trouble him as of old. Arriving at the show grounds, 1 
found a neat canvas tent covered with large ])osters announcing that Dr. Dimmock, the world- 
famous painless extractor would "draw" teeth free of charge that evening. He appeared on the 
platform arrayed in cap and gown, having taken a violent fancy to this apparel his senior year, 
and looked decidedly wise and dignified. 

The entertainment opened up with a song and dance by my old friend. Lamb, who was 
achieving fame as a Hebrew impersonator. Lamb has been obliged to take up his abode in the 
King's domain, owing to a slight mistake of his in interpreting the laws of his native State. 

The first patient now mounted the operating cliair, consisting of a kitchen chair placed on a 
soa]) box. She was a buxom young lady, and as Dimmock was preparing for the operation, 
Mclntyre, who was also employed by the management, sang in a clear high tenor, that all pathetic 
ballad, "Good Bye, Little Girl, Good Bye." Having no desire to be subponred as a witness in a 
suit for damages, I hastily left the scene of carnage, but not soon enough to escape hearing the 
blood-curdling shrieks of the victim, blending radicr unharmoniously with Mac's mellow tones. 
Before leaving Canada, I visited Dr. Nase, who was d.oing a thriving business as an undertaker 
in connection with his dental ])ractice, and is reaping profits. He kills and then buries them. 

L^pon returning to Baltimore, that dear old hot-bed of malaria, I met A. S. Brown. He 
told me he had renounced the dental profession, and was conducting a large dairy farm with 
much success. Visiting the farm I found Self employed as manager. 

I also found Lynd, and found him the same as of old — careful, painstaking, attentive to 
business and prospering. 


W'liiU- in Toxas I was sonn ai^prised of MoHctt's faun.-. It seems that, haviiifj a natural 
inclination for detective work and lon<jing for a life of excitement, lie had affiliated himself with 
tliv kantjers. and was ])atrollins,r the plains a terror to all evil doers. lie had also contracted an 
alliance with a blushing young damsel from Duzerne street, w iio had won liis affections during 
liis senior year. 

Going to Hagerstown. 1 was not surprised to learn that Davis' and Dennis' fame as orators 
had ])receded them, even to this most remote land. Gorgeously lithographed on the billboards was 
Davis in his striking and characteristic attitude, leonine head, and liir^'c, open countenance. Den- 
nis, as of old, ihiii. s])righil\ and pompous, with that stereotyped, knowing, wise look. The head- 
lines said the\ were to sjjcak that evening in the ])alin garden of the Pilgrim's Rest. I attended. 
.Never have I seen such a varied crtnvd. .\ niottled assemblage of corn crackers, swamp angels, 
s(|uatters, root diggers and back-woodsmen, had gatlu red to hear this double-headed aggregation. 
The gist of their discourse was an exhortation to the listeners to give u]) their various |)ursuits and 
elevate themselves by studying dentistry, holding tlumselves up as examples of how the lowly had 
risen. Trul\ a galaxy of busted talent. Ma\- they meet with just reward of "barnstomers." 

Itl'itt 1 foiuid in r.altimore on the east side. When 1 called 1 found him reclining on a couch 
with a f:ir-away, jien^iw look on his face. I shook hands witli him and asked how everything 

was. I was tilled witli ci inst. rnation when he rejjlied. "(lod bless you. go to the d 1." His 

broth'T came in at that nioiin-ni and informed me lllati was slightly loose in the cer.brum.

Hague is as of old. the man of well-balanced, subtle, anil llv night ful judgment, and conducts 
A higii class <K'nt;il emporium, catering only to the elite of Elizabeth. \. j. 

I met Ilartou in New \'ork at the Hoffman House (bar), and foinid him the same good fel- 
low, lofty in impulse, though not altogether with nit faults, but still a Southern gentleman. 

1 am now remimled of .McCanii. To this .g 'eat man ( statme of mean) tribute is unneces- 
sary, and comniend.'ilioii would be imp.rtinent. ^"ou all know him .-md cm easilv fortell his 
future by ])ast. 

Ill llangor I met the same old Hill. diiK m ire a\oirdii|)ois ;ind good spirits. After the first 
greetings he immediately invited me "around the corner." where, he explained, I could wash the 
dust from my throat. He is the editor of the liangor liliitter. 

"I'.awk" W'altmaii. of "habits-very-tidy" fame, is manifesting the excellent ediK-ation attaineil 
at college of making the young laugh and the old howl. He is now known to concert-hall fre- 
(|uenters as the "Hilarious jester and Fun .Manufacturer. " He apjiears nightly on the Howery. 

"liaty I'.oy" luchison. of iiKjuiring mind and ram])ant reasoning, has broken the shackles of 
dentistry and had adopted the more fitting vocation — for him — of "logging" on the Mississippi. 


Dropping into the "Fuch's Hoble" to get a "dark" one afternoon, who should I see but 
W'hisnout sitting on the table and entertaining a crowd of loungers by a tale of how he usesd to 
make plates in North Carolina. I tried to av.oid him, but as soon as he spied me. he grabbed me 
bv the arm and insisted upon my partaking of some "elixir of life." We ended up by being put 
out, and I had to put Whisnout to bed. 

Little Joe Cunn has taken up politics, and from the way his constituents speak of him, I 
judged he was to be the next Mayor. He is known as the "little Squire." Joe Says the situa- 
tion just suits him. as he doesn't care to overexert himself, having heart trouble. 

Allen is traveling for the S. S. White people, and I learn he is doing very well as a salesman, 
especially among the lady patrons. It seems strange, though, that Jack would take a traveling 
position, for he formerly had a peculiar failing for "laying up." 

I looked Cherry up in Boston, and after zig-zagging through a maze of alleys and dotlging 
flying trolleys and hacks driven by reckless drivers, 1 found his official sanctum, but Cherry was 
not there. The house was closed and a sherilY's notice of sale was on the door. So I had to leave 
without seeing him. 

Stopping at the Fremont. I met old Eph. Foster. He invited me to have "just one." and told 
me he had leased the place for a year, but that it was too convenient for him. as his best cus- 
tomer was himself, and he would return S<iuth soon as the lease ran out. He is still the cheerful. 
hearty and debonair fellow, with a gay flock of women friends. 

I tried to see Reilly. but he was either just dressing, just going out, or just retiring. sc3 his 
valet informed me. After three ineffectual attempts, I gave it up. "He is the man that keeps the 

I met Edgell over in New York, and he shDvved the stimulating effects of high living. He 
is just as original and friendly as ever, comical in a sense, but still the kind one likes to have as a 

Dean I found up in New Hampshire enjoying a life of leisure with plenty of time to follow 
the pleasures of life, his only necessary work being to clip his coupons. 

Hopkins is a living exponent of that trite saying: "Industry, honestv and econoniv gener- 
ally insure success." He conducts a livery stable, and I inquired how much it would cost me for a 
horse and buggy for an hour. He rejilied that $1! an hour was the customary price, but owing to 
our having been old friends, he would let me have it for $5.51). I told him I would just take a look 
for a minute, and departed quickly. 

On entering Skagg's office, an infinitude of paint, strangely familiar noises assailed mv ears, 
and peeping through the door, beheld the worthy doctor plugging away at a gold filling as though 
driving nails with a 2-lb. mallet, and at every stroke the patient emitted one of those soulful 
groans (heard in the extracting room every day), so not wishing to intrude, I departed qtiietlv. 

Banks. Copeland. Early and St. John conduct a post-graduate school for those wishing to be- 
come proficient in the art of crown and bridge work. Hughes is the secretarv. Their place of 
business is situated in the town of Nothing-doing, county of Nowhere. 

Wells and Wareheim I need not tell you about, for you see their names in the daily papers 
everywhere, credited with some sensational play. They are classed as the star players of the 
National League . 


Of Price I know nothing. You all remembtr him heing lost wlicii tlic cards were shuffled pre- 
vious to ConiincnccinciU. 

Hand has acquired a new adjustment of spirit, a more correct balance, and a mental, spirit-

Woodward is as of vore, a veritable incruslatinn nf fashinn and modern fails, and a true

he is the only m;in present. 

I found Heale\ siift'erin;^ from ennui and encei)halalzia. His instruments were covered with 
diacetate of co])per. lie keeps a dental office, but that is all. as it is a ])ractice minus patients. Do 
your wonder why? 

Helms has revised Harris' I'. & 1'.. and has written two volumes, which are considered by 
eminent authorities to be the cream of text books, and indis])ensable to every library, being a verit- 
able treasure house of good ])oints, heretofore unknown in dental annals, and discovered by the dis- 
tinguished doctor w hile in New York. 

Hildehrnnd, the man noted for his great caution, acuteness and subtlety of thought, is now 
one of the members of the army survey board for the condenmation of unserviceable materials, and 
still ])ossesses the same cool acumen as in student days. 

1 met Welsh at his ciffice. He a])peareil over .trained and e\ii:msted. hut after a heart-to-heart 
talk, coupled with ihree ajjiece of "( )1(1 Sherwoxl," he explained th;il it was the result of trying 
to make one nf (irieve's T-tooth bridges, having burned tliree, he had put an "ad" in 'Hill's 
I'llatter" fur a Laboratory man. While there. E.W . .Miller called in answer In the ailvertisement. 
but after learning what was required, he begged to be excused, explaining that just such i)leasant 
things as that had induced him to leave the jirofcssion and return to blacksmithing. 

While in Xew Jersey. 1 met .McC'luer. who was on his way to attend the annual convention 
at .\sburv Park. We talked on topics relating to dentistry, and it afforded me genuine pleasure to 
Karn he was in the foremost ranks of the profession. After generalizing from our dual experi- 
ences, we came to the conclusion that there arc still many who do not apprtciate what a boon to 
mankind the graduating of the Class of '(I.") is. 

I'lHin calling on Long. 1 found him with an expression of weary resignation on his face. He 
told me his ])lan of working as mapped out in regard to his patient's ideas, and as he never was 
intended for dentistry, he was going back to the farm. 

Mcl'ridden. with his grave, resigned and aust Te mooil. is the rresidenl of the Kirhmond

with a species known to the Soulheriur as "chinches.' and said chinches aiijiear to have an insati- 
able appetite for bl(io<l and a ))ccnliar faculty for |ireventing sleep. 

Steinbeck and ilolidav run a three-lnll establishment, and. judging from the display of 
diamonds on their ])trsons, are certainly making a success of it. They possess that suave courtesy 
and a charming and atTable personality necessary for success. 


I saw Wood in Virginia. He looked quite aged, and his hair was thin and gray at the tem- 
ples. He had around him a family flock of nine, and informed me the stork had brought him 
triplets twice, and then again twins. 

I went to Highlandtown late one evening to see an old patient of mine, and upon alighting 
from the car I saw only a ragged urchin, and addressing him, I inquired the location of my 
patient. Imagine my surprise when I heard the old hackneyed phrase : " 'Deed I don't know, 
you just ask Dr. Munyon, Mullins, I mean, he knows," thereupon directing me to the distin- 
guished doctor's domicile. I met the doctor with the wise look, and he did not appear elated to 
see me (I remember incurring his displeasure during college days by intimating he knew it all, 
which no doubt accounts for his Arctic greeting). I stated the purpose of my visit, and receiving 
his directions, which proved to be wrong, I departed. 

I found Big Jenkins living a life of quiet happiness and respectability, reminding me of 
Spencer, when he said :, 

"When the black lettcr'd list to the gods was presented. 
The list of what fate for e:ich mortal intends. 
At the long string of ills a kind goddess relented, 

And slipped in three blessings — wife, children and friends." 

Running over to Hagerstown, I stopped in to see Little Jenkins and S. B. Brown, the dental 
specialists. They were in partnership and doing an advertising business, figuratively speaking. 
Jenks informed me they were doing a $U),(I()0 business. He should have said that was the popu- 
lation. Piut Jenks was ever prone to exaggerate. " "Nuff sed." 

Ernest Davis is doing nothing in particular, having become innoculated with thnt most infec- 
tious of all germs — lazi-coccus — during college days. By the way, he is the original discoverer 
of the above microbe, and is willing to inform those desiring to know the best methods of cultivat- 
ing it. Snively, Saxton and O'Keefe are suffering from the same malady. 

Yacoubyan has left the States : gone to Egypt and continues practicing on the natives, never 
having learned to do more. 

i\Iy dear, beloved Sissy Sperrow has given up the genial and fitting occupation, for him, of 
keeping a dry goods and notion store. All the old latlies says he should have been a girl, and I 
am of the opinion their surmise is correct. 

"Ma" Frew, advocating conscientiousness, always clear-headed and of mild disposition, con-

The Flinton Bros., having learned much metallurgy at the University of Maryland, are now 
in the smelting business at Catonsville. Pyles is their cashier, and Ross, McClung and Dulla 
are employed in the works. The two former are known as "Puddlers," and the latter is the brave 
watchman, who guards with care their light-flowing silver solder. 

Archambault and McLaughlin conduct a physical culture establishment up in Rhode Island. 
Mc. is also one of the pupils, and "Archie" is sometimes compelled to resort to some of the 
Jiu Jitsu methods to keep Mc. in the right path.

Barton, of the inquiring mind, cheerful and mirth-cre:iting, has joined Dockstader's Min- 
strels. He has decided talent as a black-face artist and is sure eventually to score a success. 

i'.rown, L. R., has returned to .\rizona. and is now engigerl in mining ventures. Frank, earn- 
est and sincere, hi- still maintains his literary pursuits. 

Cutchin, who surely has brains, but has failed to ])n>ve the allegation, is still a midnight wan- 
dering i?rownie. He being of such small i>roportinns in all res])ects, and failing to eke out an 
existence at dentistry, has gone to London, and is now classed as a first-class chimney swee]}. I

Courage, my fellow-classmates ! The goal is now in sight, 
And our hearts are throbbing with a sense of sad delight. 

From every part of the compass, came we, strangers to these halls ; 
We have served the apprenticeship, and now 'tis duty calls. 

Our feet would forever linger around this classic place. 
Where soul has communed with soul, and face looked into face. 

But, no. Each duty done is but the call to another. 

And the time has come at last when brother parts from brother. 

Think not that we will ever forget — think not that we can. 
For thoughts of those we love are virtues peculiar to man. 

Dreaming o'er the da)'s of yore will bring some fond delight. 
Though the future lies before us like the damp mists of night. 

Kindred thoughts and kindred duties make us the better know, 
And kindred feelings teach us to share another's woe. 

We have had our share of joy, and, too, a little sorrow, 
But today's shadows vanish in the sunliglit of tomorrow. 

Old Alma Mater, nothing new to us you've given. 
But you have brightened the talents lent us of heaven. 

With hearts of gratitude, thy sons will thy praises sing. 
And ever to thy altar tributes of love they'll bring. 

Like some giant light-house, untold worth to us you've been, 
Leading us from the darkness to the higher spheres of men. 

Absence is not oblivion — I would not think this true, 
For the associations here, my heart will ever renew. 

As we part from each other let's swear a vow to duty, 
For it will bring us fame — fill our lives with beauty. 

You are yearning for life's conflict — yearning for the strife, 
But only the good we do will count in the scales of life. 

I must leave you, classmates, for now the curtain falls, 

And methinks I hear weird echoes ringing through these halls. 

Go, each to thy duty ; go, and lake my benediction. 
Remembering that life is real — not a song of fiction. 

Farewell, my fellow-class mates: farewell, my teachers true, 
The tide of life flows out to sea, and this is my adieu. 



VARIED life ye student leacles, 

As annie life cann be. 
Some times he's sadd ; sometimes he's 
madd : 

Butte oft in merrie 8'lee. 

Rig-ht sober is ye student, whenn 

In ye Professor's sightc ; 
I'lUtte whenn alone, he feareth none, 

,\nd heedeth not ye righte. 

For whenn ve teacher's in ye bedde — 
Is locked inn sleepe profounde — 

Hee seekes ye street, and nightlie there 
Hee g'oth rounde and rounde. 

Anile whenn hee taketh off ye ale — 

His mightie little drams, 
He sing!^ a songe which don't belonge 

To annie booke of Psalmms. 

Or striveth harde too fixe ye rule 
L'ponn ye troubledde minde ; 

( )r vainle seekes within ye Latin 
Ye verb his roote too finde. 

Fulle cunninge is ye student too ; 

For well hee wots 'tis plaine. 
Ye papere slippe, ye rule wilL- keepe 

Much longer thann ve braine. 

Ande if hee fails to minde ye worde. 
Whene'er his turne comes rounde. 

Ye pockette holdes ye little scrolles 
Wherecju ye taske is founde. 

Ande on examination daye, 

Iff ye Professor menu 
Who shoulde appeare ye class to trye. 

Are nowhere too bee seene. 

I'utte when ye policemann comes inn sighte, 

I'acing his nightlie roundes. 
Ye student runs, nor tarries once, 

Till inn \e bedde he's founde. 

Ah, thenn ye student's hearte with joye 

Is fulle ande running o'er ; 
Ye gracelesse scampe his pockete seekcE 

l']3on ye close of the doore. 

For if ye greatte policemann shoulde 
Gette on ye vilyian's tracke, 

1 feirre mee much, his lightest touche 
Would breake ve rogue his backe. 

Butte if ye dreade Professors come 
To heare ye class a quize. 

He opes \e booke and steals a looke 
Before ye tutor's sighte. 

Rightie anxious is ye student mann 
Whenn inn ye roome at home ; 

He poreth o'er ye nuistie lore 
Within ve classic tome. 

Rightie joyfulle is ye stui.lent whenn 
Ye longe, harde terme is o'er, 

When ancient worms and horride bugs 
Disturbe his dreames noo more. 

When onn ye swiftlie flieinge cars 
Ke seekes his home againe. 

Ye people's prayers is that hee there 
Mave evermore remaine. 



H' "W STRAXGK it seems, I feel tonigln 
As thuiigh I've seen or felt a fight. 
The ceiling twirling all around ; 
Tlicre is no floor nor any ground. 
It seems 1 have a faint nightmare; 
'Tis surely not a common tear. 
Hut now indeed it seems so strange, 
That everything is out of range. 
.Mcthinks I feel a pain or two. 
.\s of a co|3])er's wicked shoe. 
.My head feels like a common tub, 
.\ stirring pain as of a cluh. 
Tve lost my head, I've lost my head. 
.And don't know what I've thought or said. 

"PSAL.M ( )F Till-: F.VKIK.- 


I'M, uk' not in idle rev'rie, 

[•'nr to fake is our chief knowledge. 
Life at College is a dream! 

And I'rni's. ;ire imt what they seem. 

In thf class room's field of battle. 

In tile student's varied life. 
Be not sat on as are cattle. 

T.nkc ynur p.Trt. niv boys, he men! 

To fake is real ;ind it is earnest ; 

To \rj caught is not the goal ; 
Fhuiked thou art, again returnest- 

Cliances saves thv soid. 

Tni>t no teacher howi^'er pleasant. 

He will roast you in the end. 
Like a child, 'he must get even" 

I'or your good thrt)wn, sharp retort. 

Not all goodness, not all reverence. 
Is our destined way or end ; 
But to fake and bluff |)rofessors, 
Theatre, dances, "larks" attend. 

Lives of teachers all remind us. 
We can loaf, our time as well, 

.\nd at ])arting leave behind us 
Reputations that shall tell. 

Theory's a cinch and time is screeching, 
■And our Profs, well-nerved and fit ; 

Still like "dead beats" are they teaching 
What they got 1)\' fair means (nit). 

Reputations that some Freshman 
Wishing he could realize. 

Shall take heart and buy a pony. 
The "Honor Svstem" ostracize. 

Let us then be up and at it ; 

Watch the Profs, be quite alert ; 
If they cut you, roast you, flunk you. 

Drive vour horses, "do them dirt."

H.WIXC. rmishcil mir Fresliman year with satisfacticm to the I'aciihy. ami with our 
liL-ails tilled with knowledije gained hy tlie technie courses, we considered our- 
selves fully capahle of performing all and any o])erations that came our way. Armed 
with tiiis smattering of tiie science of dentistry we departed for our several homes for tlie 
suiumer vacation. How proud we were to be seen carrying our instrument cases, how our 
Iiearts were filled with joy when we could imijress upon any jjlebian layman that we were 
Pciitists. Home reached we jiroceeded to unfold our cases of instruments and prepared to 
"operate" on our unsuspecting friends — Heaven bless theiu. A few blunders and failures 
soon taught us that we were only on the threshold of the science and our swelled heads soon 
resumed their normal size. 

The most important and enjoyed bit of college news that caiue to us througli tiie sum- 
mer, was that the National .Association of Dental Faculties had. at a special meeting, held in 
St. Louis, decided to return to the three years" course of study. With our fears and douI)ts 
allayed as to whether or not it would take three or foiu^ to make dentists of us, our Class 
entered the year of "Ol-'o."!. determined to surmount all obstacles and to prove itself equal 
to Junior work. 

When all had lejoined the lauks. oui' Class meeting was held, not in fear and trembling 
as in days gone by, but with Juniors' indc])endence and Juniors' rights. The results of the 
elections were : C. li. Clifford, I'resident; P.. C. I'urgess, \'ice-l'resident ; K. 1'. Sk.aggs. 
Secretary I T. I'. Kehoe, Treasurer; Ci. W. h'rank, Sergeant-at-.\arms. 

Our whole stafif of officers ha\e been most diligent and successful in the administration 
of Class affairs. X(j class history would be comi)lctc if it did not mention the Freshmen, ami 
this one will be no exception . .Mthough a \e;n" had elai)setl since our receptit)n by the Class 


preceding us. tlie time was not sufficiently long to erase from our memories the paces we 
were ])ut tiirough in the hazing process. 

Hazing as it is known by the laity is attriljuted to the cowardly attacks by u]jper class- 
men on the unsophisticated and unorganized lambs that are fresh from home and its tender 
inlluences, but such is not the case. It is a ne:e3saiv adjunct to collei' curriculum; althoueh 
for oln'ious reasons it is not set forth in the catalogues. 

The object of hazing, primarily and conclusi\'el_\- is to teach the "freshies" that 
although they haye certain rights and privileges they are not to usurp those of the upper 
classmen. With this end in yiew the ceremonies !;egin h\ corraling the "lambs" and 
besmearing their faces with a green colored mixtiuie (The secret of its preparation is zeal- 
ously guarded b)- us), a \-ery cosmetic, 'i'hey were then made fast by a stout rope to a dray 
which was loaded with a howling mob of Junior;:. In this manner a procession was formed 
that i)araded the principal streets of Baltimore. One incident that afforded considerable 
I'.musement, too, and bfought forth nuicli ajip'.ause from the populace, was the tying together 
of a Japanese and a Russian, who were made to carry a banner bearing the inscription, 
"Japan and Russia at last united." The Fieshmcn weic made to cheer for "Old J\lar^•land" 
and the Juniors all along the line. The entire program was carried out des])ile the inter- 
lerence of the police, who tried to b.eak up the festivities. 

After the parade came the usual Class fight, both classes claimed the \ictov\-; but really 
it was a draw, as the dean, our esteemed I'rofessor Gorgas, sei)arated the combatants before 
any personal injury resulted — a few torn articles of clothing and some rumpled collars were 
the only signs that there had been a lively sera]), -\fter a general handshaking we assured 
the Freshmen that they would not be molested again if the\- kept their places. We a'e glad 
to say that with one notable exception they ha\-e obeyed ni proper s])irit. and ha\-e followed 
the precedent that has been long established in this grand old institution of learning, the 
University of Maryland. 

Throughout its winter's work, our Class has proven itself one that holds its duty in no 
light way. It has creditably, indeed, shown diligence in both ])ractical and theoretical work. 
Besides the attendance to the stern routine of work, we ha\e found time to help along each 
little cause or project that tends to build up class and college spirit, and to give lo our 
L'ni\-ersity such fellowship as is worthy of the Alma Mater of which every one is proud tc 
say he is a .sV)n. .\ few of our last year men are not with us this \-ear — These we have missed. 
!n their ])laces are a number of students that came to us from other institution--. To these \vc 
extended the glad lianrl and ga\e them welcome. 

This has lieen a quiet year with this Class. No extraordinar}- e\ents lia\e taken ])lace 
to make its history differ much from tlie history of othei' classes, and doubtless we a')]iear 
nnlch the same as other classes, to those about us, iiut still water runs dee]), so beneath this 
quiet exterior, there is a constructive metabolism going on, that will, we trust, show forth 
a nerfectly organized body wdien tlie trial comes at the end of the year. 

Thus on the eve of exams, we stand, each member of the Class anxiousb' awaiting the 
result of his efiforts, but to express a fear as to the lesult would l)e to cast reflections on our 
esteemed teachers, who have so tirelessly striven to instill into our minds the knowdedge of 
the profession of our choice. With this modest effort of the historian the history of the 
Class of '06 closes.

WELL BOYS, as Uncle Renins pnts it. I'm going to lam-a-lonse, and if I unwit- 
tingly offend, imijvite it not to your huinljle Historian, but to the fact, that tiie 
course of true liistory never (hd run smooth. Octoljer '.I, at the opening of tlie 
session of nineteen hundred and four and fi\e. llie sun arose with all the splendor of its glory, 
inch by inch it crept up and over the mountain and hill tops, until there dawiied a perfect 
dav. P)Ut in ill keeping with the day were the deeds enacted 1)_\- the Juniors. The trials, tor- 
tues and indignities we were forced to undergo, stamjjed us as martyrs of human courage and 
endurance. Only nine of our Class were present, and little did we think, that the Juniors 
would take so mean an advantage of us; howe\er. we stood our ground with unflinching 
nerve and undaunting courage, until we were o\erpowered one by <jne and carried or 
dragged to the Senior laboratory, where we were partly stri])])e(l of our clothing, and dec- 
orated with paint as Indian warriors, then dressed as Scottish Hilanders, and in this 
unsightly undignified condition, we were lashed together with strong ropes, one end of 
which was fastened to the axle of a wagon, into which a part of the Juniors pilefl, the rest 
trotting along by our side to enforce any command we refused to promptly obey; the horses 
were started ofif at a trot to the tune of "Hang John Brown's Body to a Sour Apple Tree." 
the words as sung by the Juniors. "Hang all the Freshmen on a Sour Apple Tree," while 
we with our hats ofif were dragged through mud and filth. .\t the first beer sak)on a halt 
was called and we were recpiired to contribute the insignificant sum of five cents, that our 
persecutors might satiate their thirst with a large schooner of beer, this little indulgence 
brought them in debt, as the bar tender refused to serve two straws with one beer ; after 
much difficulty the amount was raised, the bill paid, and off we started, headed for the most 
fashionable shopping district. At the corner of Lexington and Liberty streets, a hand 
organ was secured and while one of us turned it the rest danced an Indian war dance to the 
tune of "Oh, Mr. Dooley." More dead than alive we finally reached the college, and after 
being photographed, were told that we might wash ofif the paint and go unmolested for the 
rest of the day; the paint refused to wash, some of the boys, succeeded, however, with 
pumic stone in taking off skin and all, and in consequence were easily distinguished as 
having been hazed, which however sax'ed them from so luckless a fate the second time. 


Al'ttT till- liaziiii;' \\c lust \L-r\ litllc lime in .t^'ellinj^- ac<iiiaiiUeil with oacli i>tlier. and 
wlulc Dur lihertv-lovinij- spirits rci)ellc<l against sncli indignities, we deemed it best to 
assume a imxlest. (.|uiet, resi)ectfiil manner toward mir ojjpressnrs. wliile secuMy we were 
plotting deep conspiracies. Ti.e stoi y is soon told. A Class meeting was called, with the 
lesnlt. that on the night appointed. \ery much to our delight, and to their great inoi titicatioii 
we met and organized, with K. (V Lee. President; C. '!'. Hayes. \'ice-l'iesident : F. D. 
Carlton, Secretar\- : A. 1'. Reade. 'I'leasin-er: j. Win. ll;irro\\er. liisiorian. and H. L. 
Tliompson, Sergeant-at-.Xrms. Many able speeches were made, the Juniors severely criti- 
sized, and voted hitter tvrants. .\fter voting every man to secrecy, as to the oftlcers 
elected, we adiourned. The Class meeting being o\er and our object so successfully 
accomplished, we decided that tlie next thing on the program should be a mid-night feast. 
We invited several members of the .Senior Class to join us in om' little merry-making, 
ihev \ei y willingK' ;iccei)ted. and we lired up two abre.'ist. and m.nrched dow u to Welsh's. 
.\t intervals there were calls of where ;ire the Juniors, and the rejdy in chorus, "tb.eir 
m.'immas ha\e put them to bed." 

'The r.e.xt dav we were ver\' much in evidence, for we had cast olT our assumed (piiet 
manner, and now stood forw.ard. bold, fearless, and determined men. The Juniots had been 
informed of our nteeting. and were no doubt much ]ro\dked at 1)eing outwitted, which how 
e'er made them more eager to get at us. and once more drag our colors in the mud. We 
were not long waiting, for at the clo'C of our lecliu'e in "Dental llall" the Junior Class. le;l 
bv their President. .\lr. C.ift'ord. marc'ied down tlie aisle, taking us by su piise. but not at a 
disadvantage, for we soon rallied .ard swe])t all before us. carrying those bodily, who 
refused to retreat in disorder: on. on. we rushed, to \ictoi-y. and to the l''reshm;in Labor- 
atory, where we cornered .and o\eri)owered them, and but for the timely interfeience of our 
Dean, 1 think it e,\ceedingl\- doubtful, if there would ba\e been left a Jtniior to tell the tale. 
In conclusion <pf the un]i]easant things, 1 regret th.'it 1 have to record two fistic combats, 
which occured shortlv after tiie rush. Two of the Juinor Classmen, with "Duilisli I'miien- 
silies" challenged two of our men to meet them in single combat, with the result they 
wcic coni|)letelv \ anguished ; they >aflerw;irds apoli.gized. and little of consei|uence has 
occui-red since to disturb the ])eace of mind of the members of the two classes. .\t the present 
writing, there exists a feeling of good-fellow -shiji and a most friendly s])irit. which I sin- 
cerl\- ho])e ni.av continue throughout the course. 1 believe 1 voice the sentiments of my 
classmates, when I sa\'. we wish von ;dl that is good, .and m;iy yon ac(|nire a \ast store ot 
knowledge, during this vour Junior \ear, and return to this grand old school next session. 
<lignitied. splendid, high-toned, eleg.ant. gentlemen. 

To the Senior Classmen we feel most grateful, for they have been our guiding star, our 
liojie and our refuge; ;ind when they go out from us to enter the vast army of Dental Sur- 
geons, the\- b;i\e our best wishes, and may they .itt.iin the height of their ambitions, 

I\leven states and two foreign countries are represented by our classmen, .and while we 
iiavc some verv capable : yet it is easily discernible that several members of our 
Class have missed their vocation; ll.ayes. our worthy \'ice-rresideiU, should have been i 
divinity student; I.;indes, would h.ave been more successful as book agent; Burton and 
Somers should never have left the f.irm ; Ciribeschock .and Roseiig.irdt would have been 


excellent targets f(^r the Japs; the two Apples are a httle green {nr this market: Mason soon 
(lisci i\ere(l his talent as hooze-artist ; in Cramer, as observed in the ilissectirg rnom, we lose 
a good butcher; while Sachs would do well in the cast off clothing business. 

It is with much ]ileasure that I can say a word in praise of the ])rogress our classmen 
are making, into the intricate, delicate and scientific work, and the acquiring of a vast store 
of scientific knowledge, sufficient to meet all demands. In Berrhill we see a second Eastman; 
in Culliney a Uhler ; and in Salzman a Grieves. 

Oiu" Class pins ha\e been a welcome acquisition. 

Our formula for attaining a thorough kno.vledge of Dental Science is, talent ."> per cent., 
application !•."> per cent.

HY should our eyes be shining bright, 

Our hearts beat warm and high? 
Why should we in our vict'ries tide 

For fame and progress try ? 
It is because we nurse the world 

From illness into bloom, 
It is because we have unfurled 

The flag that lifts the gloom. 

A doctor's skill may save the da\' 

For suff'ring mankind, but 
The pharmacist must pave the way 

Or els; all toil helps not ; 
The doctor may prescribe correct 

Fine medicines to cure 
But we, oh friends, must be perfect 

In mixing matters pure. 

We must maintain a standard proud 

And bless the ebbing life! 
We must ofttimcs help doctors out 

To succor man or wife ! 
The tiny baby we ui)hold 

When placed in our hands 
Our hont)r, purer than all gold 

Must thrive in cultured lands. 

So let all wave their hats in glee 

This day, brave graduates 
May God bless this fraternity 

That mankind elevates ! 
In war and peace, with high and low 

The pharmacist will stand — 
God, bless all where'er you go! 

God, guide your heart and hand I

HAVING been the last '■Jiininr Class" of the JMaryland College of Pharmacy, prior to 
its affiliation with the University of Maryland as the "Department of Pharmacy," 
and now spending our "Senicjr Days" as members of this department, it seems 
proper that we preface our "Class History" with a brief sketch of that college which has 
always been honored, and still stands pre-eminent, among institutions of its kind in the 
United States. 

The need of thoroughly educated and well-trained apothecaries, led to an initiator)- con- 
ference between both physicians and pharmacists, on June S, 1S40. A committee of fi\e 
ajiothecaries was chosen to report at the following meeting, the best plan for a College of 
Pharmacy, in the City of Baltimore. This committee suggested the calling of a general 
conference of apothecaries throughout the State of Maryland, and on July 0, of the same 
year, another committee was likewise appointed, and duly instructed to draft a constitution 
and by-laws. Accordingly on July 20, 1840, our College of Pharmacy came into existence, 
thus making it rank as the third oldest institution of its kind in this country. 

At this time. Thomas G. MacKenize was elected President; Geo. W. Andrews. Vice- 
President; Robert H. Coleman, Second Vice-President: W'm. H. Balderston, Secretary and 
Henry B. Atkinson, Treasurer. Messrs. R, Roberts, Da\id Stewart and Thomas T. 


Phillips, were chosen as the Board of Examiners. These officers were also known as the 
"Trustees" of the institution. The college was incorporated on July 27. 1841, Hon. \Vm. 
Grason being Governor of Maryland at that time. Of the si.\ students, who attended the 
lirst course of lectures which began in .Xovenibc-r. I^H. and ended in February. 1842, only 
three were declared graduates at the first commencement, held on June 19, 1842. 

During the year 1844, an agreement was entered into by which the lectures of the Col- 
lege of Pharmacy were united with those of the University of Maryland. This enabled the 
students of medicine to enjoy the privilege of attending the lectures on Pharmacy, and at 
the same time our students reaped the benefit of those delivered on Chemistry. In 1844, the 
n.ime of the "Chair of Pharmacy" was changed to that of "Theory and Practice of Phar- 
macy," Dr. David Stewart being elected to the Professorship. The lectures were held in 
conjunction with the "b'aculty of Physic," until 1847, when interest began to subside to such 
an extent that for nine years no graduates were announced, the College lying dormant, while 
her charter continued in t'oice. In Is.m;, however, interest was again revived, and the Col- 
lege reorganized. At a subsetpient meeting the "J-iy-Laws" were also revised and three 
"Professorships" created, one of Chemistiy, one of Materia Medica, and one of Pharmacy. 
At this tiine the students were ipiartered at Calvert and Water streets. The original 
charter which was granted in 1^41, would have expired by limitation on January 27, 1871, 
therefore, a petition for a new. and i)erpelual charter was presented and granted by the 
Legislature of 1870. Under this act the College was again reorganized, Mr. George W. 
Andrews, who had been elected President in istl. continuing in that capacity. 

From 18G1 mitil 18":'. the Faculty underwent many changes. During the year 1^73, 
Dr. William Simon, who hail l)een 1 )irectMr ,.f the Chemical Laboratory, was chosen Pro- 
fessor of Chemistry, vice Dr. .M. J. De Rosset, who had resigned. Dr. Simon continued 
until 1902, when he was unanimously elected "Emeritus" Professor of Chemistry, the active 
<luties being entailed upon Dr. Daniel, who still holds the Professorship. The year 
1876 was marked by the removal of the College to .Xisciuith street, just north of Fayette. 
The continued growth of the classes however soon necessitated a larger building, and the 
l)resent site was soon improved by a handsome structure, which was ready for occuj'ancy 
during the latter part of 1887. It was claimed at that time to be one of the finest buildings 
of its kind in the United States. In is7'.t, Mr.Charles Caspari, Jr., Class of 1869, was elected 
til the "Chair of Pharmacy." ;uid >till li"l<ls the 1 'rofessorshi]) in this particular branch. 
Thrnngli his efforts and untiring zeal, the L'i>llege has wnn m;irked distinctinn in all m.itlers 

Many branches of Science have lu'en added tn the cnrricuhnn fmm time to time, the 
most important being those "i Micri>so>py,, Volumetric .\n:dysis and Dis- 
])ensing Pharmacy. The literature which has em.inatcd from the Maryland College of 
Pharmacy stands foremost .among wi.rks of its kind, both in this countrj- and .abioad; 
indeed, each Professor of the present h'aculty, being the author of a text-book which is 
recogm'ezd as an authority throughout the entire world. 

The idea of receiving a degree from an institution with such en\iablc <iuali(ications, 
naturally inspires the mind of the ynutli, pharmaceiuically inclined, and with this end in 
view, the nieinbciN i>l' the |)resent Senior Class of "or>. were drawn li>gether ()cti>ber 1. 1903, 


The opening address of welcome was delivered by Professor Base, his very kind remarks 
being followed bv Dr. Culbreth, while Professor Caspari, our honored "Dean," closed the 
exercises of the dav with an abundance of good advice. The rules and regulations of the 
College were clearly defined, and the requirements necessary to make a conscientious, skill- 
ful, and successful Pharmacist were naturally impressed upnn us. First impressimis have 
always been regarded the most lasting, and our bo}'S were not long in fdrniing an aci|uaint- 
ance which soon ripened into real friendship. 

Regular routine work was begun at once, and while at times occasional clouds of home- 
sickness hovered about many, yet hard study and close application, soon proved an effectual 
remedy. Class officers were chosen, Mr. William H. Clarke being elected President. By 
his able administration, the Class was piloted through the entire session of the "Junior 
Course." After the Christmas holidays, which to many of us meant happy home reunions, 
our thoughts were soon turned to the intermediate examinations, when some met their 
"Waterloo," proving that future success meant "putting our shoulders to the wheel," and 
preparing ourselves for the battle in April. 191)4. 

The Junior session will ever be memorable to us all, on account of the disastrous fire 
which threatened our entire city on February 7, 1!)04. With a "mantle of fire" and sheets 
of flame surrounding us, our Collge home escaped unharmed. 

During the scholastic year a reception was tendered the Faculty of the College by the 
students of both Senior and Junior Classes; later on Dr. Dohme entertained the students 
at his residence in roval fashion, a \er\- enjoyable e\'ening was spent. Thus the monot- 
ony of our school life was somewhat broken. During the later part of April the final exam- 
inations were held, the following days being marked by much anxiety and suspense, in our 
eagerness to ascertain our general standing. Success crowned the efforts of manv. Air. Rol)- 
ert C. Todd being the successful winner of the College prize, of the Junior Course. At the 
opening of the Senior session in October, 1904 we found oursehes students of the Uni\-er- 
sity of Maryland, thus, for the second time in her history the Maryland College of Pharmacy 
is joined to this old and veneralile institution. The continuation of our scliool under its old 
name will doubtless bring jo\' into the hearts of manv of our former graduates, and at the 
same time, give them an opportunity of uniting with the "Alumni" (_)f the Uni\-ersity. for 
the general support and adx'ancement of Pharmacy. 

The Senior Class at present numbers twenty-four, se\'eral ha\ing failed to qualify at 
the examinations, while others resigned for various reasons. The officers for the Senior Class 
for the present year are Messrs. Charles M. Hornbrook, President; .\lfred E. Kemp, Vice- 
President; Robt. C. Todd. Secretary; Robt. F. Moody, Treasurer; J. Carlton Wolf, Histo- 
rian; Ross S. McElwee, .\rtist. Prophet and Editor. 

A feature of the present session was the hazing of the Freshmen of the Pharmacy De- 
])artment. The "lads," decked in war paint and well lassoed, were photographed and then 
paraded through the business section of the city. On their return to the Universitv, all 
agreed that they had been well initiated. 

A spirit of kindly feeling has pervaded the members of the Class during the present 
term, our happiness being marred only by the fleath of one of our most popular fellow-stu- 
dents, William J. Aydelotte. In proof of the high esteem in which he was held, and as a 


tiilnitc to liis mc-morv. a heaiititiil wreath of roses, and a set of Engrossed Resolutions 
were presented bv tlie Class to his bereaved parents. Other than this, tlie general happi- 
ness and welfare of the Class has been unbroken: and at the same time, an ardent symi)athy 
has e.xisted between the students and their honored Professors. They have aided us in 
breaking tlie "seal" of that ponderous volume known as Pharmacy, and we are proud to 
ackncjwiedge them as ujiholders of our young h()])es, and youthful aims. In parting, the 
Class of l!Mi,") wishes to render thanks to tlioni all. and also gives hearty assurance tliat in 
the Coining vears "Time" can ne'er destrox- their nieniur\-. 

I. C.\RLT()\ W'oLl". 





AT the eleventh hour I find m}'sclf the prophet of the class of nHuo-lity-fi\'e. Awakening to th- 
duties that are before me, I find myself mystified. Realizing that I alone could not pre- 
vail upon the gods to reveal to me the future of our class, I hastened to the wizard of 
Oz. I sought his assistance in procuring of the gods the future of the Class of IDUT). Fame and 
.success, he said, awaited each member of our class, litit not all along the same line. The future will 
find many successful in different walks of life. 

Being the first class to graduate from the new Pharmaceutical Department of the University of 
Maryland, much is expected of it. New ground to be broken, new roads to pave and high examples 
to be set, which will be appreciated and respected by the classes to follow, and which we, ourselves, 
can look back upon with pride. 

The future of each member as spoken by the wizard is as follows : 

President Hornbrook will be one of the most fortunate among our number. P>y the aid of West 
Virginia's greatest philanthropist he will be enabled to fit up a laboratory esjjecially adai)ted for 
pharmaceutic investigation. With his ability and untiring energy great and valuable work will be 
done along this line. 


Our clever vice-president, Alfred Eccleston Kemp, as the name suggests, is destined to be a 
man of great deeds. He is now well known as an interceptor of thieves. Having won no- 
torictv a short while back by his artful scheme to catch the jiortcr. His future will be absorbed 
in solving many of the mysteries that will present themselves. Sherlock Holmes will soon retire, 
having no show with our adroit Kemp. 

Robert C. ToiUl, our esteemed secretary, will prefer tlie quiet life of the country to that of the 
hustle and hurry of the city. \\'ith his reticent disposition and easy-going manner we will find 
him a few years hence, i)roprietor of a small drufj business. He will be the daddy of a large family, 
and will find the drug business alone will not yield enough to meet his expenses. So before long 
we will find him at the family occupation of farming as a side issue. His apt knowledge of chemis- 
try will lead to many improvements in Mother Earth, which will be heralded with great joy, and he 
will pass his remaining days on a pedestal of fame. 

Treasurer Moody, by name, but not so in disposition, will after a few years experience as a 
pharmacist, hit upon a formula for a panacea which will be w-orld renowned. With a troop of burnt 
cork artist he will tour the country. Crowds from far and near will crowd around his band wagon 
to listen to his silver-tongued descrii)ti()ns of his many marvelous cures, and to invest their last 
dollar in a bottle of this greatest of all medicines. Water and coloring matter will still remain 
cheap ; in a few \cars his cheque book will make that of Rockefeller look like a punched meal 

Historian Wolf will soon rise to the head of his father's llroadway I'liarmacy. I'.v his skill 
and energy he will soon have a business tha' we all will envy. It will he the pride of the East and 
a pattern for all. 

It is with fear that Prophet McElwee hears of his future, and a nervous pen airs it to the 
world. After completing his course in pharmacy he will begin the study of medicine. Being a 
great admirer of the loveliest work of God and w ishing especially to please this sex, he will com- 
plete a special course in "How to make the ladies more beautiful." We will find him in later 
years a successful "Beauty Doctor." Every week the ladies will be startled by his many marvel- 
ous improvements on their sex. Why he will have success — you can be the judge. 

Associate Editor Waterman, will in the near future connect himself with one of our large 
manufacturing chemists. Being a man of unusual business ability, he will soon rise to the posi- 
tion of business manager, later on we will find him a member of the firm. Great improvements 
will be made by him, and it will rank as the foremost plant of its kind in the country. The col- 
lege chums of Barrett will not be surprised to learn after a few years he will not be found behind 
the ])rescription desk administering to the physical ailments of mankind, but will he jiosing be- 
fore the altar endeavoring to cleanse his brethren of all moral diseases. Remembering the de- 
baucherv and wickedness of his classmates he will weekly hold (on Thursday), a special midnight 
service for pharmacists. .Ml will be cordially invited. No collection. 

Our j)opular friend Black, having been fortunate by being surrounded in his early career by 
men of much learning, could not be otherwise than quite a success. He and his brother will open 
quite a fashionable apothecary shop on the street of lialtiniore. Our friends smiling counte- 
nance and impressive manners will soon fill his shop with the "Swells." The sale of his goixls. jilus 
the price of his smile, will soon fill the vaults of his banking house. He will retire early wearing 
the smile-that-wont-come-oflf. 

' 874 

Born into the world with no rush for the end, we find Boenning. He will soon begin his lad- 
der of success. Early in his career he will be. found peddling from door to door his "Honest Corn 
Cure." He will travel a hard road at first but perseverance will be his watchword, which success 
naturally follows. Soon his "Honest Corn Cure" will be second only to the family Bible. His 
income before many years will be a burden for him to count. 

"But a fool must follow his natural bent," so with Chidester. He will lead the life of a clerk 
for a short period in a shop in West Virginia, and then he will become proprietor. He will 
deem his predecessor's policy ])lcbeian and recognizing the wants of the "Morally stunted" will 
put in an unusually fine line of spiritus frumenti. His wide experience in Baltimore having made 
him a keen judge of this drug; his sales will soon exceed his fondest expectations. Soon he will 
decide the drug business too slow and we will leave him the proprietor of a flourishing "Smiling 
Emporium." All those who will be inclined to criticise his course will be cordially invited to in- 
dulge with him in a quart of his select old stock. 

f )ur slow but sure Clark will prefer the outer-door life of an AI.D., to that of a Phar.D. After 
graduating from the pharmacy department he will take up the study of medicine. After com- 
pleting this he will return to his old home, Pocomoke City, and in the mumdrum life of a country 
practitioner will find his life's calling. 

From the stage of the theatre our friend Cassell will take to the tall timbers where he will 
establish a small country drug store, thereby realizing his childhood's ambition, fie will find 
bachelor life rather dull in the country and will soon marry. The outcome of which will be 
several "Hefty" boys to aid our friend's hair to grow thin and grav. 

As we all know Firey thinks himself the "whole cheese'" when it comes to chemistry. With 
this thought paramount in his skull he will continue the study of this science. Many years will 
be spent by him in the chemical laboratory searching what he mav devour. 

You may expect many new discoveries in the years to come (Firey). 

Folick will be a patriotic Russian and return to his native land. There with his knowledge 
of chemicals, he will engage in the manufacture of bombs and other Russian toys, with which to 
greet the Czar when he shows his face. 

Hess, the Dutch apothecary, will be known as that, only for a short while longer. Being the 
only real sport of our Class, and as a sport and a pharmacist do not make a good mixture our 
"Dead Game" will say to H — with pill rolling — the race track and fair women for mine. His 
future will have many ups and downs before success finally crowns his undertakings. 

Janer, the silent, with his brood, will return to Porto Rico and open an up-to-date American 
pharmacy. It being the first of its kind on the island he will enjoy a large and profitable trade. 

Jordan will not remain in the drug business long, finding it most to rapid for his pace. He will 
return to his first love, the country schoolmaster. In this capacity he will pass the remainder of 
his days. 

Lewisson will not be able to resist the calling of his tribe. He will change from Lewisson, 
the pharmacist to Lewisson, the clothier, and spend many happy and profitable days in dispensing 
the real bargains of the week. 


Well, it is Pat at last. Few events go (lnwn in history witliuut the Irish and their devoted 
Shamrock are there to do it homage. So in our midst one L. Xeal Patrick will he there at the 
finish. T'at, the voiith of onr Class, decided the drug business was just the thing for him. In liKMI 
we will find a business established by him in Ireland. Soon after his beginning he will formulate 
a line of household remedies and to test the potency of one of these he will take a dose. Poor 
Patrick will rest among the martyrs of science. 

Phipps and Power will join forces and migrate to the far West to engage in tlv.- profession 
which thev will have so successfully mastered. A pleasant and prosperous business career will 
be theirs. 

The last of the immortal twent\-four is our cotton-headed Rossberg. The good Lord did 
greatlv displease this man in the adornment of his head. His future will be spent in the thorough 
investigation of the hair in the hope that tlie desired shade might be made to grow. Rossberg"s 
treatise on the hair is a iniblication that wc can all look forward to.

Gone ? yes, he's gone ne'er to return ; 

Oh ! how the heart must bow to pain, 
To know that his dear mortal form 

Will never more be seen again. 

That smiling face, so fair and bright 

And bringing to a mother cheer — 
Which tilled a father's life so full 

Of cherished hopes and joys most dear- 
While starting on life's rugged sea, 

To pass the perilous rocks before, 
Alas! a sudden storm is on — 

.\ sunken ship — the voyage o'er. 

U. cruel Death, why didst thou thus 
Upon the victim lay thy hands 

And hurl him off to yonder shore. 
Rending attection's fondest bands? 

\\'hy didst thou, at this early hour — 
liefore life's race had well begun, 

.\ml when the morn had yet been blessed 
W itli hut a few rays from its sun — 

Intrutle thvself antl take away 
The ornament, so pure, so true, 

That filled a home with rays of joy 
Which nothing evermore can do? 

Peace ! peace ! we shall not murmur so ; 

"Pis but the workings of the hand 
( )f llim whose deeds are ever right. 

And whose justice we all must stand. 

That ln\ing oik-, too pure to live 

L'|)on this world of sin so great. 
Heeded the angels' beckonings 

And entered through the pearly gate. 

A ransomed throng he now has joined. 
And. free from cares and toils and fears, 

Celistial bliss he will enjoy, 

.\nd ecstasies unknown to tears. 

W'iiile from that distant clime serene 

No voice to earth can ever come. 
We know tli:it he will greet ns there 
W'hen we, in turn, are gathered home.

I GAZED upon him daily ; alas ! I never thawed him out, 

He seemed to be so haughty without the slightest doubt ; 

He was a class above me, and I wished heartily each cla\ , 

The time would pass more quickly and usher in the niunth of May. 

For then I'd be a Senior, as inijjortant as could be. 

And look down on a Junior as haughtil_\- as he. 

Yet even tho' he hazed me at the opening of the school, 

And made me go through stunts till I simply seemed a fool. 

I'll drink to him, a Senior, 

Even though 1 am a Junior; 

For 1 covet his ])osition, and hope to fill it in no distant day. 

When commencement's over. Here's to the Senior who will graduate in Mav. 


The Faculty ! the Faculty ! that clan of art and science, 

The band of genius giving to the unknown their defiance. 

Whose "Parchments" glad the Senior's heart ; and make him pjeons sing, 

Until he comes to pride himself he is a great Something. 

The station reached by weary climbs and many setbacks, too. 

Was always brought to nearer view — so praises are the due 

Of that grand august clan of men 

Who've guided us two years, I ken. 
Here's to the Faculty. — A Senior.

THIS NOTABLE class entered their historic episode on the tliird day of October, IDOi, 
when nearly fifty husky looking chaps, representing plantations from all quarters of the 
United States, assembled at the new Pharmaceutical building of the University of Mary- 
land, to be enrolled as the Junior Class of Pharmacy. 

Not only have we a noble class of youths, but we are honored by having as members of our 
class two fair and blushing maidens, who have decided to try their hands at "pill-rolling," instead 
of "pin-rolling." 


W ith fear we enter our Lecture Hall, not knowing what was to cnnie liefore us, hut to 
our jin we were greeted by our Dean — Professor Cas])ari — who gave us a few words of 
fatherly advice: esjieciallv. that we should not devote too much time to home-thinking and 
sweethearts — if any, the former will no doubt be hard for some, especially those who have never 
been away from "mamma's apron strings'' — but rather indulge into the ni\sf:ries of Materia- 
Medica, Pharmacy, etc. 

Expecting to be kidnapped or hazed in some way or other, we were for a few days a little 
timid in coming to and going from the university, but as time passed on and no signs of trouble 
appeared, that timidity gradually left our hearts. 

Alas! we became too confident, on Monday morning, October the lilst, the dear Senior 
Class, supposed to be courageous, energetic and ambitious, played the "coward act" by trapping 
half of our class, like rats in a trap, in the Chemical Laboratory, liaving been taken in such a 
manner, we were, naturally, overpowered. 

Willi no little difficulty did they paint our faces and arrange us in "Hogan's .\lley" style, 
and not until after a few minutes of "giving and taking," and with the assistance of a few co- 
operators, they finally succeeded in starting us out on parade. 

Xaturally, it went hard with the majority of the boys, but as the old saying that "It is 
never too late to do good," we will some day seek and get revenge, for "Vengeance is ours." 

Since that notable "hazing," in which our entire class figured, no one has molested our bodily 
feelings, but our personal feelings — they have been quite frequently — by our beloved Lecturers. 

Professor Casi)ari, trying with might and main to tell us the difTerence between a "Pliarmacy" 
and a "Diamond Dick Novel." 

i'rofessor Culhrcth, having said at the beginning of the course, that Botany is of little or no 
im|)ortance to the Pharmacist, now scares us by saying that it educates the mind, so as to be 
able to master the "jaw-breakers" he has in Materia-Medica. 

Professor Base, with much eloquence, tells us we will have to burn a few "midnight tapers," 
or take water on examination day. 

Professor Hynson tells us not to be afraid to use papvr for book-keeping, but to be "stingy" 
when using it for packages. 

Many of our hearts were gladdened when we were notified of our Christmas holidays, when 
we could once more return to our homes, even though it was only for a few days. 

(Jn January .3rd, 100."), we returned to the L^niversit\ to resume our duties once more, de- 
termining to do some hard studying so as to come out victorious in the month of May. 

Thus far glory and honor have attended our nf)ble class, and. may we hope that the same will 
attend the course of the naughty class of "naughty-si.\." throughout her sojourn within these w'alls 
of learning. Historian. 





Mcrril)-, cheerily, dance and sing, 
Trippingly, skippingly, in a ring. 
Laugli with ns. quaff with us. drink of life. 
Measure all pleasure, all free from strife. 
Live today, give today no thought of morrow, 
Love the part of the heart, careless of sorrow. 
Cupid is king of all, 
Stupid ones hate his thrall. 
Yet lift your glass, 
Let the toast pass, 
Beauty, truth, love and youth 
Rule over all.

WE DO X( )T liold forth in this jjlace for the purpose of delivering ourselves of the ex- 
cuses that are usually forthcoming on these occasions. We do not feel in an apologetic 
mood. We do feel that the publication of this book at all is a real achievement, and we 
believe that, as college annuals go, it is rather a good one. Tlie only persons to whom we con- 
sider ourselves bound to apologize, which we hereliy do, are Robert Southey, b'.dgar .\llan Poe, 
the worthy author of "The I'.urial of Sir John Moore," Rudyard Kipling, and a few other incon- 
sequential persons who don't take any interest in it anyway. 

Everything in this book has been conceived and executed in a spirit of absolute good humor 
and good will. W'e have not knowingly admitted a single word of malice. .A-s editors, we are 
of course firm believers in tlu- liberty of the press, and particularly in the license allowed to col- 
lege books. Vet we trust that we have not abused this, and that all of our good friends — faculty, 
classmates, fellow-students and the dear ])ublic— to whom we have from time to time directed our 
attentions, will regard those attentions in the spirit in which they are hereby tendered — a spirit of 
benignity and entire good nature. 

While we do not esteem ourselves gi(Kiy reformers by any means, we trust the gentle reader 
will note that we have touched u])on with our delicate and scintillating wit, and have fiourislied the 
editorial big stick at not onI\ the matters of ephemeral and passing interest, but also others of more 
serious and general concern to the Law Ueinirtment at large. As examples, see our remarks 
on the languishing condition of the library, the impending dissolution of athletics, and the more 
or less personal screeds to the addresses of individual students — to every man for his respective 
soul's correction. The first we commend lo the Faculty, the second to the student hotly in gen- 
eral, and the last to the gentlemen so distinguished. We are very modest men, but we believe 
that imijrovement in each ca^^e will be the result of effort al<ing the lines we liave indicated. 

With this, we bestow our blessing, and ste]) down, as nian\ belter men have done before us, 
C'lninu'nding to \(iu in parting Ti'.I'JKA Mai;iai; fur llHi,",.

"Happy is that people 'whose attnals are brief." 

Hearken unto me all ye friends and admirers of the Class of 1905 whilst T, as the chosen suc- 
cessor of my renowned Brother Herodotus, bcingof a sound ( ?) and disposing mind, give and be- 
queath unto you a short narrative of its brief existence, and a flash-light glimpse of a few of its 
most distinguished and best-known members. 

During the latter (lart of September in the year 1002 about one hundred youths, of almost 
every kind and description, assembled at the I'nivcrsity from various sections of tlic cmuitry, and 
knocked at the portals of this Temple of Learning for admission. \\c did not knnck in vain, for 
the faculty soon gave us the glad hand of welcome, and smiled at the idea of being able to .'xtort 
from each of us the usual library fee of four dollars for the alleged i)ur|)ose of supplying the 
library with new books. (In passing, I might advert to the fact that during the past three years 
the only new books that came into the library were several volumes of the iMaryland reports 
\vhich — thanks to his generosity — were presented free of charge by Mr. Brantly.) 

The class by fi o'clock in the evening had collected for the first time in the lecture room and 
onlv a short while clajiscd before we found ourselves on a cruise upon the Sea of Blackstone, piloted 
by tint most skilled and wise man, Mr. France. We had not been sailing on the "legal waters" 
long before one of our younger members named Parks became sea-sick, and his head has been 
"swimming" ever since : but as in Pandora's box, hope still remains for him. Our friend Parks 
has convinced us by his many pointed questions aimed at the lecturer, that lie undoubtedly pos- 
sessed such talents as would some day distinguish him as a great trial lawyer — before a justice of 
the peace. Of this lad we might say. 

"A little learning is a dangerous thing. 

Drink deep, or taste not of the Pierian spring." 

After the lapse of a few weeks a meeting was called to perfect a class organization and to 
elect officers to manage its affairs. IJnwood L. Clarke was cho.sen as our first president, and 
under his administration the class began the rapi<l jirogress which has been characteristic of it 
ever since. It was very fortunate for us that Wilson did not enter the class until it had been per- 
fectly organized for he would — judging from his future actions^uudoubtedly liavc attempted to 
"niilrnad" himself thn)ngh for president. 


After the lapse of a few months we sailed out of the Sea of Blackstone into its kindred 
waters of Domestic Relations and Real Property. The former subject proved a narrow and dan- 
gerous channel, indeed, for about one-third of the class learned to their sorrow that one could have 
"domestic'" troubles without even entering into the holy bonds of matrimony. We were told 
that real property was "immovable;" this we knew in theory, but it was only after Judge Baer's 
marks had been turned in that we fully realized the significance and meaning of this chief char- 
acteristic of real property. Notwithstanding the diminutive marks that many of us received at 
the hands of the Judge — though well deserved — still we were all glad to lend him our large in- 
iluence and support toward his election to the bench. 

I should also mention that we were entertained at a course of lectures on Criminal Law by 
watching the instructor see how many mint jujubes he could dissolve in the course of an hour. 
Indeed this narrative would be incomplete should I fail to mention the fact that we had a course 
of lectures on Sales during our freshman year ; but it requires almost a .stretch of the imagination 
and a strain on the conscience to say that we were taught Sales because only about seven of us, 
who became characterized as the "faithful few,'' attended these lectures, and doubtless we did so 
more from force of habit than anything else. 

The summer of 1903 arrived and we were glad of the four months vacation It seemed short, 
indeed, and with renewed energy and more determination we enrolled in the fall of 1903 as In- 
termediates. While quite a number had deserted our ranks, finding that the paths of the lawyei 
were rough and difficult to tread, still many new recruits came in to fill the vacant places. 

Mr. Poe delivered to us the same address of welcome with which it has been his custom to 
greet our predecessors for more than two score years ; and with a few hocus pocus gestures soon 
launched us into the depths of Pleailing. Ouite a number in our class, such as Barry, Stinch- 
comb. Cook, Jones, etc., were married men, but they, like the more inexperienced ones, while 
having been successful on the practical side of pleading, found there was still room for further 
consideration of the subject. Air. Poe deserves a great deal of credit, for he not only taught us 
pleading but also furnished us with a revised edition of his jokes, as well as a digression every 
now and then on metaphysics, politics and religion. 

Tudge Baer, wishing to develop us along all lines of the law, gave us a course of "agricul- 
tural" lectures on Cherry Grove, Black Acre. Frog Bottom, Love's Delight and Breezy Point. 
The Judge also explained to us the Law of Descent, but with all his great learning he failed to 
inform us as to how T. S. Crane ever came here. 

C. N. Steigelman was elected ]5resident of the class, and our intermediate year passed ac- 
cording to the usual course of things. It was during this year that Motter resigned his seat in 
the State Legislature and Barry left the clerkship of the Superior Court to become members of 
our class. This history would be incomplete, indeed, should I fail to mention a few of our well- 
known "celebrities." with a characteristic to identify them. 

To start with, we have Miss Laurie Alitchell and the twin brothers Hatch. Then, too, there 
is Jones with his soft, cender, little voice which, when he speaks, reminds one of a thunder storm 
— witii the rain lett out. Farber is a youth of poetical inclination who is tlie reputed author of 
Uie following lines — 

"Yet, if I might m\- own grand jury call. 
By the fair sex I beg to stand or fall." 


ihrii tliovi- is r>urroiiglis, tlio lilirarian. ami l.ncas. his assistant, who boasts of his complimentary 
ticket to "Ijntt in" at all times npon all occasions. .\s we fjlance further down the list wehnd Mason 
to whom fate will be cruel, indeed, if she destines him to till anylhiny; liss than a seat in Parliament 
as a menibLT of the House of l.,ords. 

McC'onnick is a veritable dualitv, being an expert electrician, as well as a jjroficient lawyer ; 
he is an exception to the rule tiiat no man can serve two masters well. 

Then, we are confronted by llrodie and New, twin-stars, who are almost consumed by the 
-.]ilcndor of their own brilliancy. J''.l)\ is our lady-boy whose femininity is so a])parent that trousers 
are realh unbecoming to him. Settle is a lad coa:erning whom the most that can be said is that 
he holds the record for smoking more two cent cigars than an\ six men in the class. 

Odend'hal is our eccentric genius; his rellecti ms. will-known to us all. are not ctMifined to the 
lield of law alone, for he has carefully develo])cd opinions on questions of theology, metaphysics, 
medicine, socialism and negroes. His latest dis overv along legal lines is that "jurisprudence" 
and "jurisdiction" are synonomous terms. It is a great wonder to us that he has not been picked 
up bv some detective as being a conspirator or an anarchist. 

Smith is our preacher, who prefers to "take a text" and jireach a sermon in class rather than 
recite a case assigned to him in e(|uity. Doubtless the world would have had a new evangelist 
had he been allowed to proceed with his "text," as he was in a good held to jiroduce excellent 

And .so 1 could nu-nticin man\ others, .^uch as 'I'ootle, the journalist: Stinchcomb, the book- 
grind; I'urroughs. the libr.irian ; Hall, the arrlent Dimocratic advocate and aspiring successor of 
1. 1". Rasin ; Steigelman, the ])arliamentarian ; Tregoe, the father of the class and jiresident of 
the Miniicipal League; Slaughter, the ladies' ma.i. and Hryan who was com])elled to take a six 
months" course in book-keeping in ordrr to be .nb''- to kirp his mucs on the lectures in a systematic 
order, >o \-oluminous wire the\. 

Wells is the barilest student in the class; he listens to all three lectures a day with as mucli 
concentration of mind ;ind a countenance as immovable as that of the Sphinx watching the sim 
rise and si't each da\. 1 )avies is the Daniel Web-ter of tin- class, and we predict that be will cause 
the halls of man\ a court lo ring with his eloqm'nce. 

There are (|uite a numi)er of members whose names 1 lia\e not luention.d owing to the limita- 
lions of tiuK' and space: doubtless by reference to the ])roplucy you will tind them portrayed in 
all their fnluri' s|)lendor, but. ne\ertlieless, may be able to recognize them. 

( )ur senior vear has passeil without anythiiii,^ muisual to attract our attention. During the 
tirst |)an of the year much interest was aroused over the ipiestion as to who was going to be 
elected president of the class. Stinchcomb thought he was entitled to the honor, because he had 
led the class during ])revious \ears: Waite also laid claim to the much coveted position, but the 
majoritv of the class did not share his views with him. .\fter several ballots John \'.. Semmes, Jr,, 
was finallv chosen ])resident, and his later bearing and conduct ha\e convinced us that our choice 
was wisely made. 

( )f course, we had our graduating theses to pre)).ire. which occupied our attention for consid- 
erable time, as well as did Kvidence, International l,.iw. l''.(|iiit\ ;md Constitutional Law. I should 
not f.iil to nienliou before closing the successful l)ox-]>arly the class gave at the Academy of 

Music. It is needless to say that we all enjoyed it exceedingly, and it did much to relieve our 
minds somewhat of the nervous 'legal" strain fri nn which we were just recovering as the result of 
the Janr.ary examinations. 

Whatever merit this narrative may posses?, 1 shall fe.l ahunclantly rewarded if those who, 
turning to these pages in future years, are reminded of the student days spent at our dear old .\lma 
.Mater; (la\s of joy and happiness intermingled with struggle and toil. Our course in law has 
been a difficult one; whatever success we may have achieved in it is to be attributed to hard work 
(in our ])art, directed and guided by instructive lectures delivered by the faculty. It is this com- 
munit\- of interest and sacrifice made in the attainment of a common end that should draw us as 
a class into closer union and tighten the bonds of good fellowshi]i among us. It is to be hoped 
that our relations at the bar, as we practice oiu" chosen ])ri)fessi(in. will be marked by the same 
friendh- feeling which characterizes us as students. 

( )ur existence as a class has lasted through the short period of three years, a period brief, in- 
cleeil, which seems now almost as a "tale that has been told." However limited as our stay at the 
University has been, we feel that we have been well-prepared and equipped to carve out bright 
and successful careers, if we only continue to strive hard in their attainment. 

.-Vs we are about to make our adieu and step across the threshoUl into the more strenuous 
life of reality and possibilities; we feel that the mantle we have worn as seniors will fall upon the 
shoulders of those worthy to take our places in the affairs of the University. One of our last acts 
has been to adopt an emblem in the nature of a watch-fob which we shall ever wear to designate 
us as Lhiiversity of Maryland graduates of litd"), and we trust that the classes which shall follow 
after us, will carry out the precedent we have endeavored to establish. 

History has been said to be "the basis of prophecy." However true this statement mav ap- 
pear to be I trust that the present history of the seni:ir law Class of 1905 will prove to be a 
meagre basis, indeed, upon which to form a conception of the glorious and illustrious deeds its 
members are destined to achieve. 


V , ? J 




(Jk thrcL' years the Class (jf llitl."; has delved into tiie mysteries of legal lore and jiassed from 
its elements to the verv zeni t h nuJ its intricate knowledsfe. 

Some who darted (iff at IF 

/rtiji<i^ line fell 1)\ the wayside, but it is pleasant for tlie 

J'rophet to note in looking hackw rird l)rfiir.,' lookiiiij f(ir\\ar<l, that the largest number of this prom- 
ising class have kept faithfully to tlu' wnrk. and will soon be launched upon the public with their 
little sign boards. 

The law^ is a strange but fine profession, wherein there should be an "eternal fitness," and as 
the Pro|)het pillowing his chin upon hi? hand and sinking into the spirit of rhapsody with a far 
away piercing vision, wonders, perhaps, if some who have prostrated themselves before the Shrine 
of Tllackstone should not have be-n w<irship|)ers of the rural gods: a treatise on gardening 
would to your rhapsodist appear more fitting to some, as tiiey i)ass in visionary procession, than a 
volume of annotated reports; but who can tell, even your rrophet. what jirovidence may have in 
store and closed from any vision, and even he who met every examination but to fall, may in his 
own generation be covered with the dignity and robes of the Sujireme Justice. 

I^et us look and gaze upon the class men as, one b\- one, they pass before our vision, and let 
the spirit of sincere projihecy help us to assign their ])laccs in the future. That ])aragon of 
scholars, he who has hwxvA the midnight oil and watched the dickering ra\s of the tallow di]) as it 
closer and closer ap])roached the stick-our honov m;ni. Stincheomb. What can we say bu! "'I'.x- 
celsior." 1 ie will plant llu' ilag of his profession upon the highest peak, and no side lines will hold 
him back. 

Then follows a figure of ipiiet modesty, who should shine in his profession, as the Law is a 
heritage of our President. He has had our confidence and nuich will be expected of his future. 

Close by is his side partner whose dimensions nearly overshadow the President himself, and 
the size of whose hat is a thing to be gazed at. The Prophet is even awed, and would only 
breathe that perhaps there is a brilliant niche for this legal mind. 


One by one, they pass in review; but who is this of tall dimensions and comely name? Our 
friend Jones. His heartiness of spirit and genial mind will always make him friends, and for him 
we forecast a place where laws are made and not where they are interpreted. 

Here comes one who has moved in and out among us, and aimed to fill important parts. What 
of the law for VVaite but a stepping stone to the political arena and many hustings for the good old 

But now comes one who has had nothing to do, but will and work from the office to the desk, 
with many a social fee to pay. He has done his best, and we see for Slaughter the affairs of a 
corporation and many charges for opinions written in four figures. 

Who is this with disappointment written o'er his countenance who aspired to be a poet and 
lost the job? 

The clear explainer of intricate facts who would convince the judge at the point of a bavonet, 
or his finger more properly to say, Farber, the genial and acceptable, who has carved a unique 
place in the history of our class, and we see him playing great parts in the wild and wooly West. 

There are so many that the Prophet can only tab them oflf and say in some cases a future 
iirilliant, in others, perhaps, but who can tell? All fellows fine, earnest and diligent, and in the 
generations to come this prophecy can be looked upon and seen how far fulfilled. 

Closing the long procession is he who, though of modest disposition has yet aimed to dignifv 
his class ; an editor, by chance. The chance at times directs our future, and we may forcasr that 
Skeen will be adding to legal folios, text books on the science of Law. 

Class-mate, if your name has not been mentioned i, \ prophecy do not assume it was be- 
cause your part has not been imjjortant. The Prophet v. „J5 a mental notation of each future 
that will be opened at any time upon request.

AT SIX O'CLOCK on the evening of September twenty-eighth, nineteen hundred and three, 
the members of this Class assembled at the University, and entered the lecture room to 
be introduced to the Law^. This mtroduction was given a few minutes later, when an 
energetic little man hastily entered the room, and took his place behind the desk on the plat- 
form. From somewhere around the desk came a voice, which, after some hesitation and doubt 
we concluded was the voice of the lecturer. Frequent illustrations by the ancient and time hon- 
ored estates of "Blackacre" and "Whiteacre" soon made them immensely popular, and perhaps 
their popularity is only exceeded by "Cherry Grove," "Frog Bottom," Possum Retreat" and "Per- 
simmon Hill." 

No sketch would be complete without mention of P — , the jester, joker and punster of the 
Class. The evening came for him to report on a case which had been assigned to him. The case 
concerned an action for a breach of contract brought by the management of the Covent Gar- 
den, one of the finest theatres in London, Hgainst a singer who had broken her contract to sing 
there. Professor B — , one of the most dignified members of the Faculty, was conducting the 

"Mr. P — ," said he, "please give us the facts in your case." 

Mr. P — , who had only a vague idea of the case after a hasty jjerusal thereof, and little knowl- 
edge of theatres abroad, but who was perfectly familiar with certain suburban resorts around 
Baltimore, and others in the city, where liquid refreshments are freely dispensed, and vaudeville 
shows freely given, made the somewhat natural mistake in thinking the Covent Garden was 
one of these. (Perhaps the word garden is always more or less suggestive of moisture). Accord- 
ingly he began "This-er-case is one of-er-breach of contract by-er-singer in-er-a beer garden." 
"What did you say sir?" thundered the venerable professor. 

He was exceedingly disgusted, and thereupon reported the facts of the case himself, while 
the unfortunate Mr. P — , perspiring freely, sat down, and the Class laughed. 

The big fire in Baltimore, occurring at the beginning of the second term, will always make 
us remember our Junior year. 

A most enjoyable occasion and feature of the year was the smoker which we held at the 
University on Thursday night, March twenty-fifth, nineteen four. The afi'air was well managed 
by the committee in charge. An attractive entertainment was furnished by members of the Class, 
with the kind assistance of some outside talent, and a delightful collation served by the caterer. 
We were honored with the presence of Mr. France and Mr. Chesnut, both of whom made inter- 
esting, witty and instructive addresses. Some members of the Senior Class who had been study- 
ing long and hard in the library, and who were weary and hungry, hearing the sound of mirth, 
the rattle of plates, and the smell of refreshments, betook themselves to the door, and peeped in 
on the festivities with watering mouths. And not being bid to the feast, they sought to put an 
end to it by blowing into the gas pipes in the library, which caused darkness among us for a few 
minutes. This not proving very successful they betook themselves to the dairy lunch up the 
street, where their fast was broken, and no doubt they slept comfortably that night. 


The following occurred at a quiz by Judge H — . Tlic Judsjjc liad just answiTcd a question 
\yhvn P — , with his gloves on and his feet cocked up on the chair in front of liiin. hmke forth 
with an air of great confidence and assurance. 

"Judge, I tliink if \ou will look a little further over in the l)o<ik. you will tiiul that different." 

The Judge was rather nonplussed for ?. moment, and then he replied. 

"Have you a book sir?" 

"No sir,"' said P — . 

"Then please take this and find it," rei)Ii"d liie Judge. 

P — took the book and .searched eagerly through it hack and forth frum front to bacic and 
back to front. Everyone waited. P — began to get red in the face and also in the back • f his 
neck, and to pers])ire. Still he searched. Finally he gave it up. 

"1 am-er-afraid 1 am-er-mistakcn. Judge. 1 am-er-afraid 1 don't-er-understand tiie subject." 

"\^cry likelv," rei)lied the Judge, and the (.'lass lauglu-d. 

One evening at a quiz by Professor P — , this question was asked. 

".Vow Mr. P — ," said the Professor, "suppose the jury has retired to the jury room, and is 
locked in by the Sherifif. They arrive at a verdict, and want to get out. I low can they do it?" 

"1 su|)pose the\ wnuld have to climb out by the lire escape, sir," replied P — . 

This sketch must not he closed without a few remarks on the subject we are pursuing. In 
law when a thing does not exist w^hich ought to exist, and wliich you want to exist, then it exists 
"in contemplation of law :" when a thing ".< not actual, and there is no way of making it so, then 
it is "constructive;" when a thing is not express and there is u(j chance that it cvlt will be, then 
it is "implied." Aft^r a study of such resourceful ])rincii)les as these, it is not remarkable that 
there occurred to the fertile and absorptive mind of a student the idea of getting the jury out by 
the fire escape, when their customary and usual mode of egress had been barred by the sheriff. 

Some of the members of the Class are in the habit of falling into a gentle snooze during the 
lecture, and in blissful repose they sleep through the discourse. Pet them beware, lest some day 
when they awake, they, like Rip \'an Winkle, find themselves strangers to liieir surroundings — a 
new law building and a "complete outfit" in the library. 

Profiting by past experiences and growing wiser as we grow older, let us give heed to that 
\\ hich has been truly .spoken : "Beware lest at the exams. \ our sins find you out." "Res ipsa lo- 
i/ititiir." — meaning the exams. 



THERE is no mystery more great than that mysterious and invisible curtain which divides 
the present from the future, and keeps forever sealed from our mortal vision the hap- 
penings of the unexplained and the unexplainable tomorrow. Because of it we grope our 
way darkly step by step, and day by day, not knowing whether our path leads to Alpine heights 
of victory or over the precipice of defeat and despair. 

It is perhaps more than anything else because of this very mystery that the mind of man ever 
delves into the unbroken soil of the future, seeking to know what harvest it will yield him in the 
fullness of time, from the seed which he is sowing in the present. 

Thus it is that all men, and more particularly those who have not as yet embarked under full 
sail on the broad, deep, and unknown sea of their life, love to dwell on the unsolved problems 
of the future, exjieriment with the unknown chemicals of which it is composed, and to speak with 
the tongue of prophecy, that which they profess to see through the eye of Psyche. 

But it is not the purpose of this paper to attempt an explanation of why men always have, 
and always shall try to ferret out the mysteries of the unknown through the medium of pro- 
phecy. The iluty of the prophet is to read the future, and not to define the why and wherefore 
of his art. 

My dut\- is to read the future, to use the language of one of our most beloved professors of 
the "ardent and ingenious youths" who compose the Class of lOOfi. 

Knowing that in my own strength I must fail in such a vast and far reaching undertaking. 
I turned for instruction and guidance to our last year's book. But there I found that one prophet 
drank a potion called ''Egyptian Magic Wine," which gave him startling visions of the future, 
but he must liave drunk it all as there is no more on the market. Another suggests a visit to 
the Delphic ( )racle, and yet another dreamed most wonderful and beautiful, dreams. 

These being out of the question and not knowing what better to do, I applied to an Astrol- 
oger and besought him to search well his text-bo(jk, and from out its ample and storied pages to 
give me a true glimpse of all those who compose the Class of '06. 

He told me I must give him the date of each member's birth and a lock of his hair. This 
I was unable to do in many cases, because some of our members are married. But I gave him 
those I could and now I shall proceed to relate the facts as he dictated them to me. 

The first name I see is Bevan's, and the signs tell me that he will early forsake legislative 
halls and return to his first love. 

Bradley, step not on the ice when it is slippery, when it shineth in the moonlight, for at last 
it jarreth like an earthquake, and shocketh like thunder. 

The walls of the court house and the legal lore of Brown's library will often become too 
narrow and tame for him, and he will hie away to the glitter and glare of the ballroom for a 

Clarke will shake the dust of his law books from his clothes and become the editor of a 
great daily. Clarkson, too, will soon lay aside the Statute of Uses for green pastures in the 
fields of Uncle Sam. 

Drew will become famous for his wonderful exposition of how a wife may charge her stat- 
utory separate estate without her husband's consent. 


Derr will combine law and music, and such harmonious splendor from his lips shall flow 
that no court or jury can withstand him. 

Fitzhugh shall become the beacon light of Curtis Bay. 

Hooper, the bard from Jersey — your horoscope shows a great ititure, provided you think 
not too often "I count my time by times I meet thee." 

Lee is the coming authority on Domestic Relations. 

Lilly's future is in the balance; he must choose between law and politics, for it is as im- 
possible to serve two mistresses as it is to serve God and Mammon. 

Matthews will forsake law for the more noble and ancient profession of athletics. 

Morgan will one day know that notes are easier sold than briefs. Would he know why? 
Res if^sa loquitur. 

I'arks's mad through life will always be sunny, for whatever l)cfalls lu- will be glorious. 
"O'er all the ills of life victorious." 

Pool's legal advice will always find a market, for a man who knows and knows that ht 
knows is always safe to follow. 

Smith's eloquence will cause the mountains of Weslern Maryland to echo with the fullness 

Tucker will always be as indispensable to the fair .sex as the caterpillar to the silk worm. 

Young will not always practice, but will find a more agreeable occujjation holding in trust 
the funds of his fellow classmates, which they have earned in the sweat of their brow. Here the 
end of the list was reached and I was obliged to say to my good friends au revoir. 

Any member of this Class whose name is here omitted can get any desired information con- 
cerning his future bv coiuiilying with the above requirements, and addressing his communication 
to Box 125, Zion City. 


Modesty compels me to 

Mention that this meter rippliii^i;. 
.hid this style of I'erse are due 

To the brain of Mr. Kipling. 

To the Legions of the lost ones, to the Cohorts of the damned 

To my brethren who have flunked it out for fair, 
To the unhap]iy also-rans, whose weary hoarls are crammed 

With knowledge hot enough to scorch iluir jiair. 
Oh, from Burglary to Trover, they have ODiuicd the Law books over 

With a zeal deserving praise, beyond all doubt ; 
Faith, their Intellect was burning with its vast amount of learning, 

And it burned so hard it finally burned out. 

We are ])oor little sheep who have lost our way Criminal Chesnut turned us down, 

Baa, ah. Baa. l.illle Joe h' ranee has done us brown, 

Wc are poor little .sheep wlio have gone astray, -^nd Harlan has sent us to "No Pass Town,"

i ...I, 

,A:ji.J_i. Li_! 

H'W'TNCi fulfilled the requirements of an elementary education by successfully completing 
our preparatory courses at various institutions, it was on the twenty-sixth day of the 
month of September, in the year Ninteen Hundred and Four A. D., at the time when the 
sun was about to sink beyond the horizon, that the Class of Nineteen Seven assembled within the 
jirecincts of these revered walls of learning, in pursuance of a profession which is one of the 
most sacred, and commanding much dignity, yet which is neither an art nor science. We were 
there for the development of what we choose as our most likely vocation. 

Gradually as time passed and we became familiar with the faces of one another by daily in- 
tercourse, and realized that we were all pursuing a similar course, an interest in our fellow stu- 
dents soon arose. That first feeling of uncertainty that a Junior experiences upon finding him- 
self amid strange surroundings and previously imbued with the idea of adverse criticisms from 
the upper classmen was soon dispelled, and it was not long before we were hard at work draw- 
ing freely from the ever flowing fount of knowledge — our lecturers. As interest deepened in our 
studies and one another, quiz clubs were formed for our mutual benefit. 

Our first and dear old friend Blackacre was among our best known and constant companions 
and from the way it was sold, conveyed, willed and adversely acquired, its lengthy existence was 
only made possible by the occasional substitution of Whiteacre. It finally vanished, just where, 
is beyond elucidation. 

Before long we were plying into very State-ly aiifairs ; confounding and untangling technic- 
alities, together with the relations of em-ployer and em-plo3'ee. The jocular disposition of our 
lecturer was manifest by his apparent enjoyment of jokes — but what chestnuts ! 

As the days increased in numbers we were confronted with the most serious Status known 
to humanity, but no doubt to those sentimentally inclined it was the cream of our curriculum. 
Domestic Relations was by far the most interesting of our subjects, yet strange to relate, long ere 
the close of each lecture, there was a universal closing of books, sh'uflling of feet, and the striking 
of a match here and there, which would lead one to believe we were ecected with ennui. 

Then came the exams., those two eventful days. Our care-worn expressions were easily 
accounted for when we consider that this was our first test in a university where the highest 
standards are upheld. 


Having learned our fate, we started the second term with renewed vigor and determination 
to .surpass our previous records. The subjects of this term proved most interesting. The real 
subject has been free from f^crsoual remarks, but we feel much concern reganhng the fate of "My 
Son John" and the final disposition of "Cherry Grove." 

it lias often been said there is a lack of class spirit until an c.xam. W'c found this true with 
the Class of Nineteen Seven. Deeming it expedient for the welfare of the Class to organize, an 
organization was effected, and we have every reason to believe it is a good one. 

While in search for legal knowledge it is evident we have not neglected athletics from the 
allowing of the re|)resentatives of our Class on both the gridiron and track. 

May our relations continue pleasant, and honor and glory attend the future legal lights of the 
Greater Baltimore. 


9' I 'WAS the universal belief in the time of Elijah — not the prophet Elijah (Dowie) of our 
I time, but Elijah the imiiiortal prophet of the Israelites — that, in order to penetrate the 
mists of the future, to draw aside the veil which hides from our anxious eves the events 
which are to make or mar our careers, one must bedivinely inspired. Whether your prophet was 
the recipient of such an inspiration, or whether it was the efifects of a large dinner and two or 
three pipes of good tobacco, that brought to me the vision which I am about to relate, I am not 
prepared to say. 

However, be that as it may. On that memorable occasion, I was transported from "this mortal 
coil" into the realms of the great unknown, and when, after a sojourn with the seers and prophets 
of yore, I again reached this earth, I found that such a remarkable change had been wrought, that 
my eyes fairly started from their sockets, and an exclamation of wonderment rose to my lips, but 
I could utter not a word ; I was speechless. 

I found myself in front of a large building which I immediately recognized as the Court- 
house. "By Jove, I'll surely see some of the boys in there," thought I, so I started precipitately 
across the street, and in my haste collided with a huge policeman, the masses of whose long yellow 
hair protruded from beneath the rim of his helmet. 

"Beg your Heavens it's John Judge!" I exclaimed in amazement, as I saw the genial 

countenance of our former Sergeant-at-Arms. 


■'Yc|), it's no oil-' else," said he, grasping^ my hand and squeezing it until I yelled in pain. (That 
grip of his was the result of tlie lessons in jiu-jitsu, which every candidate for a position on the 
force was obliged to take.) 

After I had placed the bones of my hand in their normal position, and had batlied it in some 
of Dr. Wm. F. Hevan's Hitch Wazel (a bottle of which I always carry in my hip pocket ) I asked 
ludge if he knew the whereabouts of any of our classmates. 

" is full of em." he answered, in his brief but em])hatic way. "Coine over, and I'll 
get Thompson to take you around. He's one of the guides." 

We went over and found Lee Thompson in the lobby talking to Watchman ^'oung. 

"Our class seems to have gotten a corner on the political job market," 1 remarked to Young 
after we had exchanged greetings. 

'"Yes, there's a half dozen of us who hold political jobs just in the Courthouse. .Archie Hep- 
bron's a bailiff in the Circuit Court, and T. C. Williams runs one of the elevators, and together 
with Thompson and myself, and Janitor Kaufman, we very near run the place." 

"So T. C. is running an elevator, is he?" said I. 

"Yes, and he's in his seventh heaven, loo. You remember he always wanted to run something 
or other, and he can run that elevator any way he wants, and nobody says a word about how he 
does it." 

".\nd where did you get yuur |ndl ?" 

"Oh, you sec Bealmear and Marine went into politics, and we worked them for the places," he 

"I thought Stone would be the man to go into politics, if anybody did," said I. 

"Xo, Stone opened an office for a while, but I suppose he couldn't give up his old tricks, so 
he went to running again." 

''What, as old as he is, and still running" — 

'"Xot in athletics this time : he's running for a bank now," jnit in Young. 

"I never would have thought it of Stone. Tn think after running for so nianv vears for the 
glorv and sport of the thing, to fall so low as to run for money." 

Hut it was of no use : they didn't sec the joke, so I threw up the sponge, and asked Thompson 
if any good cases were docketed for hearing that day. He said that there was one in the Balti- 
more City Court, so I walked over there. Imagine my surprise, when on opening the door, I 
f(jund that the Judge was no other than my friend, Howard Hamilton. 

As Thompson has said, the case was indeed an interesting one. The point at issue was 
whether or not a grass widow was entitled to dower, and as this question had never been decided 
by a Maryland Court before, the decision of Judge Hamilton woidtl establish a precedent which 
would be followed by the courts all over the State. Moreover, a heated argument was exiiecteil, 
because both of the i)arties to the suit were represciitii! l)y tiu- cream i<i tin- profession. Messrs. 
King and Kppler, of the firm of Ringgold and KppKr. reinesented the piaiTititT. while Willis and 
EichellKTger defended the suit. 


After listening for a couple of hours to the arguments in the case, I left the courtroom and 
proceeded with my guide to the Record Office, where I saw, on a number of the libers, the initials 
M. O. S. I afterwards learned from Fred Colston, who was the cashier, that Marco Shriver had 
held for several years the office of clerk of the Superior Court. 

While I was in the Record Office, Colston informed me that Brown and Dunn had published 
a catalogue, giving the latest news of all the graduates of the Law School of the University of 
Maryland for the last twenty-five years. 

This was just the kind of book I most wished to see, so looking in the directory I found the 
address of Messrs. Brown and Dunn, and leaving the Courthouse, I hailed a car, and at last arrived 
in front of the building in which they were located. I went up to the thirteenth floor, and found 
in large letters on the door facing the elevator the following inscription — 

BROWN & DUNN, Agents, 

Brad Street, Associate. 

On entering, I found Donny Hans seated behind a large desk. Seeing me, he vaulted right 
over the desk, and we clinched. After he had drowned a couple of his floating ribs in tears which 
he choked back in his throat, we broke away, and he asked how I had found out where he was 
working. I mentioned the book, and told him I would like to see one of them. He showed me 
one, and the following are some of the things which I discovered after a perusal of its pagvs. 

The first thing upon which my eye fell was a list of the most celebrated criminal lawyers in 
the State, and prominent in this column were the names of Messrs. P. W. Harr\-, Harold Hann, 
Clarence Leith, Noble, Bradley, Eckard and Fowler. I saw that Jim Clark and Al Ravner were 
partners in the graft business, while Austin Lilly was writing verses and jokes for the "Saltimore 
Bun." Much to my amusement, I found that Tom Dryden was playing the leading role in a drama 
entitled "Why Women Sin," but I wasn't surprised at that, for Tom alwavs had a hankering after 
the stage, especially the female portion of the chorus. Herbert Forrister, now a preacher, had 
tried in vain to convert him. Harry Newman, Buddy Norwood and George Gaither had opened 
an office, making a specialty of divorce suits, but Newman dropped out because he had found that 
the laws of the State, relating to marriage and divorce, were so different from those of New 
Jersey, that he was always getting them confused. "Why," said he, "in New Jersey a man can 
marry his widow's sister, but they don't allow it in Maryland." 

Hammond and Josh Hawkins were engaged in writing a book entitled the "Historv of Amer- 
ican Politics." Poor Rome had opened up a law office, but sooner or later, he made the (to him) 
astounding discovery, that he could write all the law he knew on the front page of a small-sized 
volume, so he gave it up, and reopened his saloon. Frazier and Wood were doing a midget stunt 
in vaudeville. Sullivan was still reading law. 

But how strange things were getting, something must be wrong with my eves. I could see 
plainly the names of some of our brightest and best men. such as 'Ferine, F. S. Ehlen, Schmeis- 
ser, Constable, and West, but when I tried to follow their names along to see their vocation, the 
words grew dim, until finally, the whole thing disappeared from my sight. The veil had again 
been drawn, and I awoke to find that luy pipe had gone out. Lighting uji again, I continued my 
reading from Yenable on "Real and Leasehold Estates." 



"How do the shysters 

Come down to our door?" 
My little boy ask'd mc 

Thus, once on a time ; 
And moreover he task'd me 

To tell him in rhyme. 
"1 was hit by a trolley, 

Most dang'roiis of sports, 
Then I felt far from jolly. 

Came home out of sorts. 
But the rumor had spread 

All over the street 
I'd been hit in the head. 

They ran over my feet, 
They had cut off an car. 

They had mashed all my toes, 
I'd come home on a bier, 

They had broken my nose. 
The shysters came running 

On hearing; the news, 
Altho' most of them knew 

It was only a bruise. 
From highways and byways 

They came trooping o'er, 
To trample my garden 

.And pound on my drxir. 
Hurry and skurry, helter and skelter, 
They gave me im chance to hunt for a shelter. 

Five ambulance shysters 

Came driving their rigs. 

And twelve other chasers 

Brought doctors in gigs. 

The doctors to look at m\- torso 
.\nd knock it, 

The lawyers to put both llicir hands in 
My pocket. 

In a terrible stew their contracts they drew 
And asked me to sign them without more ado. 

Of all they collected 

They only expected 

To keep eighty per cent. 

For it was their intent 

To let me have twenty 

Which they thought was plenty. 
Full ten thousand strong 
They came plunging along, 

Striking and raging 

As if a war raging. 
Spouting and frisking. 
Turning and twisting, 
.And always insisting 
There should be no resisting. 
Each one would file suit 

In a blink of an eye, 
Each wanted the fruit 

That hung there on high. 
On they canic in a terrible rush, 
All together in one grand crush : 
Each of them begging for just one chance 
To make the street car company dance. 

Collecting, j)rojecting. 

.Anil rattling and liattling, 

.Ami running and stunning. 

And roaming and foaming, 

.And working and jerking, 

And diiming and spiiming, 

.And guggling and struggling. 

And moaning and groaning; 
And l)ul)l)ling and troubling and doubling, 
-And grumbling and rumbling and tumbling, 
And clattering and shattering and battering , 
Delaying and staying and playing and braying. 

.Advancing and ])rancing and glancing and dancing. 

.And lla|)ping and rapping and clapping and slapping; 

And so nrver ending, 

Hut always descending. 

Tlie shysters by hundreds will leave me no more. 

They have come all at once with a mighty uproar 

.And that's how the shysters collect round my door." 



i il[ 'AI FARBER. Of course you know me — everybody knows me; at least everybody who 
I passes by the stage door after a musical show. Yes, that's me. It must be in my blood, 
•* I just can't help being a devil. All my life I have been attracted by the things one should 
not do. I am not wicked; I am just interesting. Somehow or other the girls like fellows who 
have a past. Of course I have not lived long enough to have a really, truly past, but it is so 
much fun pretending. 

"Did you see me yesterday. O, yes you did ! I was that fellow going up the street with his 
feet hanging out of a cab window. Wasn't I doing it up proper? That's life, I tell you. None 
of your humdrum, dead-level existence for me. There must be something doing where I am. 

"When I go calling on a girl, I don't exactly tell her what a terror I am. Oh no ; my sys- 
tem works better than that. I just sigh and say, 'Oh me, I think my life has been wasted. What 
I need is some good woman to exert an influence for good over me, but I suppose I have reached 
the point where no one cares." That fetches her. It isn't long before she is snuggling up close 
on my big manly chest and saying, 'Yes, there is somebody who cares for you.' Then she gets 
embarrassed at her boldness and plays with the buttons on my coat. Then I lean down grandly 
and kiss her ; the first time on the forehead, because there is something so noble about it. After- 
wards I kiss her full on the mouth, not once, but several times. It ain't anything new to me, but 
she seems to find it novel. 

"Later in the evening, after I have had my reform lesson, I go to the Studio and lap up a 
few high balls. That's what I call showing a girl a good time. They just can't resist me. 

"Can you wonder that I do not spend much time over the law ? I am realy so busy. Every- 
body says I ought to be an actor, but then you know all the others would be jealous of me, and 
I do hate disagreeable scenes. 

"What is my age? Excuse me, someone is calling me. I must be going."

I, AW Siiiiidi,, Si:\iiiK Class, to wit: 

Tliu students of tlie University of Marylani], for the body of the 
senior class of the Law School, do on their oath present that W( ee ) 
Calvin Chesnut, alias Vesta Tilley, alias the Mighty Atom, late of said 
law school on the lecture days in the year of our Lord liJt^u, at the 
school aforesaid, being employed in and about the shop of one Edgar 
H. (ians, then and there being found, did, then and there, feloniously 
steal, take and carry away ct-rtain mannerisnis. gestures, tricks 
of speech, oral intonations, anil superficial manifestations which have been used by the said Ed- 
gar H. Cans as characteristic traits of individuality for lo! these many years, with intent to de- 
|)rive the said Edgar II. Cans of the same, albeit the said Edgar H. (lans seems to have a plenti- 
ful su]jplv still in stock ; contrary to the good form of a youthful lawyer, in sucli case made and 
provided, and against the peace government and dignity of the law school. 


And the students aforesaid, on their oath aforesaid, do further present that the said \V(ce) 
Calvin Chesnut, alias \'esta Tilley, alias the Mighty Atom, on the said occasions and at the same 
places obtained the same by means of false representations, to wit : by representing himself to 
be one great after the fashion of Edgar H. Gans, and taking the aforesaid gestures, mannerisms, 
etc., well knowing them to be feloniously stolen, taken and carried away ; contrary to the good 
form of a young lawyer, in such case made and ijfovidcd, antl against the peace, government and 
dignity of the school. 


And the students aforesaid on their oath aforesaid, do further present that the said \\(ec) 
Calvin Chesnut. alias Vesta Tilley, alias the Mighty Ale mi. uu the said occasions and at the same 
places obtained a hearing by means of false i)retenses, to wit: that he has made himself uj) to 
look like \'esta Tilley. a lady of nuisic hall fame, and in that guise lias presented himself before 
the students of the I'liiversity of Maryland Law School contrary to the jjcace, government and 
dignity of the school. I.KAr.nkd Lawvku.

THERE was once a personage by the name of Mettee. He thought he was just the real 
cheese, and that John P. Poe, Bernard Carter and Charles J. Bonaparte were larks com- 
pared to the only original, supposed-to-be-a-yard-wide Mettee. He was boss of the Bar 
Library, and within the four walls of his cage he attempted to make things hum. It never oc- 
cured to him that you can catch more flies with sugar than with vinegar. 

Now this here Mettee did not know that there existed a law student named Serious Senior, 
who had soliloquized thusly : "Look here, old boy, if you want to nail that hundred dollars you had 
better get out your little hammer and do something beside read Wallace Bryan's notes." So he 
hied himself away to the Bar Library, because he was a regular Standard Oil when it came to ab- 
sorbing anything with a bar attachment. This time he met his Lawson. 

When he and Mettee met he handed the impresario his right bower in the form of a note 
from John P. Poe. "Who is this John P. Poe ?" shouted Mettee ; and with that he chased Ser- 
ious Senior clear to the Calvert Street entrance, because it was after one o'clock. 

The next day Serious Senior drove in early, but as nobody seemed to take the number of his 
cab, he hitched and pulled the bell. If you ever saw the Hale Fire Fighters responding to an 
alarm on the Pike, that's Mettee going into action when a law student rings the bell. He brought 
up his infantry, his cavalry, and his artillery all at once. When he got within firing distance he 
cut loose, and what he called Serious Senior would not give him a recommendation as a lady's 
pet broke to parlor tricks. 

Mettee began to play the stern parent in the moral drama. "What do you mean by ringing 
that bell.'' You rang it 29 days ago, and by Rule 17, section il, you have come too soon. Go out 
and sit in the elevator shaft until tomorrow. You have brought disgrace upon this sacred place. 
You get no more pate de fois gras in this house. I forbid you to carry away the keyhole. Not 
one thing shall you take. Go dressed in your fatal beauty which has brought my gray hair in 
sorrow to the undertaker's." Anyway that is what he meant. 

Mettee said that there was not enough oxygen to go around, so Serious Senior had to pur- 
chase a supply at the drug store. When a man goes up to write a thesis Mettee looks at his 
teeth, feels his pulse, listens to him breathe, and if he makes 97.6 on a scale of 100 he may come 
in for two minutes. 

"Give me volume so-and-so," begged Serious Senior. 

"O dear," said Boss Mettee, "two sugars and a dash of seltzer! You cannot have that 
volume. It contains the naughty divorce case of Blank vs. Blank. Law students are quite too 
immature to have such pabulum." Serious Senior took the count but the bell saved him. He in- 
timated to Czar Mettee that he didn't care if Mrs. Blank did strike Mr. Blank and afterwards 
lock him out. He was not after that kind of a strike or lockout, even if it did go to an equity 
court. Mettee gave him the book after gluing together pages 78 to 99 inclusive. 

These pleasing preliminaries took fr^im 10 to 12.55 P. M. 

Serious Senior had no more than found the case he was after when Mettee came churning 
up the channel and stopped both paddle wheels. He called the student a blue-nosed apex of an 
equilateral rhomboid, and after a few more endearing expressions finished b}' calling him a 


mutt-faced mazaza. All of which meant that Rule 37 says law students must not be caught in 
the library after 1 o'clock. 

Mettee never takes notice that the student of today is the lawyer of tomorrow. Some day 
he may be carrying a hod, and (horrible to think) some of the students hope that he will be 
carrying the banner. 

Moral. — No wonder wc were told that there is room at the top, when such men as Mettee 
rattle around in the minor positions. 


There arc kickers galore 

Tn this land of the free 
With kicks by the score 

.\imcd at you and at me, 
But the noiest two 

I've e'er heard in a fight 
Are, I'll whisper to you, 

Stubborn Foxwell and Knight. 

Was there ever a motion 

That they did not oppose? 
With their obstinate notion 

Thcv both straightway arose. 
If the door is left wide 

They want it closed tight. 
Ever on the wrong side 

.•\re grim Foxwell and Knight. 

There is no class election 

That they do not adorn ; 
They demand close inspection 

And then laugh us to scorn. 
Both our friends make complaint 

Tint the thing is not right. 
Oh. each one is a saint 

Our friends Foxwell and Knight. 

They arc never content 

With the world as it is, 
.And tliiir whole lives are spent 

In dictating its "biz." 
For their woe there's one salve. 

When they finish the fight 
In their heav'n they may have 

Only Foxwell and Knight. 


Old Stinchcomb is a grimy grind 
Bent o'er his books you'll always find 
Him deep immersed in legal lore 
Trying to add to his great store. 
To right or left he never looks, 
Xo interrupting joke he brooks, 
He is intent upon his books. 
This beautiful, dutiful grind 

Old Stinchcomb never has a lark, 
He tries to get the highest mark. 

While other children run and play 

He sits and studies all the day. 
For us he sets a killing pace 
Since he is striving for first place 
In this tough Hlackstone grinding race. 

This hustling, rustling grind. 

Old Slinchoomh leads the class, I hear, 
I take my ease and si]) my beer. 

I'll never lead a class, 'tis true. 

But. Stinchcomb, I'd not change with you. 
Ndti lead the class, but you don't know 
Tln' jny of sitting at the show 
(iuying the girls from the front row. 

\'ou busy, dizzy grind. 



— Poem Written in — Verse About a Place. 

This is the library. Within these walls 

Are kept the volumes of this mighty school. 

Behold ! They have almost a complete set 

Of Maryland Reports. How sweet to think 

The faculty cannot afford to buy 

E'en the reports of their own Commonwealth! 

It little matters how stray volumes found 

Their way to the great world outside these walls. 

We care not who purloined them ; they are gone. 

How laughter shakes the sides of one who 
Upon these dusty shelves for text-books new 
And up-to-date. No book they seem to have 
Bearing a date upon its title page 
More recent than that year in which King John 
Signed his John Hancock to the Charter Great. 
The law has changed since then, but in this room 
If one would seek those changes in the law 
He must perforce consult a digest vile, 
Which gives to him at best a smattering. 

Within this desert waste an instant pause 
And search for the reports of other States. 
Nay, do not laugh. Here wise men teach the law 
Of Maryland, and do not care a hang 
For that great world which pulsates with rich life 
Beyond that close horizon which hems in 
Their petty lives unmindful of great deeds. 
What are the words of other courts to .them ? 
They are content in their provincial way 
To let the student live a life made narrow 
By book-worm feeding on this State's reports 
Without a thought there is a world elsewhere. 

O members of the faculty ! We pray 
You look upon the books in this sad room. 
We give you gold, can you make no return 'i 
We understand, ( ), masters, that this school 
Is said to be a gold mine for those few 
Who make division of the fees we pay 
And, being lawyers, also tap the State 
For a few bucks wrung from the sons of toil. 
If this be so, O, masters, spend a bit 
Of your most hard-earned cash upon this room.

O ! Sleep, thou art the greatest boon that's giv'n 

To man by an all-wise decree of heav'n. 

Great monarchs woo thee, can not find thee out — 

{(J\ fudge, what is this lecture all about?) 

Thou rul'st supreme (I really think for fair 

That I shall go to sleep right in this chair). 

Soothe with thy gentle touch the bed of pain 

(O! slush, is he repeating that again? 

I knew the man who wrote that dry old law, 

It is about the I ever saw). 

Cool the impatient lf)ver's burning brow, 

(Wiio is that snoring in the back row now? 

I cannot hear the lecture for his noise) . 

A subterfuge the troubled mind employs 

To snare thee, timid Sleeji ! ({ ) gno. he talks 

Exactly like a frightened nnid-hen walks). 

Over the pure, O ! Sleep, thy sway is mild 

(That voice of his will surely drive me wild!), 

For on the pure of heart — (Where am I at? 

Last night I fell from grace, O! what a bat!) 

Thou lay'st thy fingers gently ( Cut that out ! 

Above your snore he'll really have to shout 

If I'm to hear him ; you owe more respect 

To your professor). Sleep, thou dost reflect 

The image of thy dreaded brother Death. 

{ Say, that professor's only losing breath 

In talking to this class ; they're all asleep. 

And how can he expect that I shall keep 

Awake? The exam, is three months off). At night 

The peasant seeks his couch (Just out of spite 

He shouts once in a while, just as I start 

For dreamland) ; thou, O Sleep, dost calm his heart. 

(Don't think that I'm asleep because I close 

My eyes). Like an unopened dew-dipped rose 

The infant sleeps. (Great Scott! Don't push that chair. 

My nerves arc out of joint; just leave it there.) 

For six long months (What was that reference? 

Fourth volume, well what page? If he'd talk sense, 

I'd listen some) in icy northern land

Who drinks cold water by the glass?

Who thinks he knows the whole blamed law? 
Who is the worst we ever saw ?

Who gives us pointers every day?

Who tells us what we ought to say?

Should those old days e'er be forgot, 
The days of which he's sung? 

We love to hear of days so dear, 
When John P. Poe was young. 

He wrote a book on pleading once, 
And we have oft been stung ; 

It made a hit, altho' 'twas writ, 
\\'hen John P. Poe was young. 

Things went along far easier, 
We have it from his tongue. 

No midnight crams, six hour exams, 
When John P. Poe was young. 

The very first code, I am sure. 

Is classed his works among ; 
This work so great speaks from the date 

When John P. Poe was young. 

The Supreme Court of this broad land 
Upon his words once hung ; 

His age he feared, so grew a beard, 
When John P. Poe was young. 

The Democratic party knows 
\Miose praise it oft has sung — 

Who turned the tricks in politics 
When John P. Poe was young: 

Tobacco was not smoked in class— 
The changes he has rung 

Upon the wa}'s of other days. 
When John P. Poe was young. 

No Princeton man was ever flunked 
And placed the goats among ; 

They 'gan to pass with his first class, 
When John P. Poe was young. 

May John P. Poe ne'er older grow 
Nor slower wag his tongue. 

For we can say we've seen the day 
When John P. Poe was young. 



With Apologies to Everything POEtic, and even 

Once upon a niidniglit dreary, wliile 

I pondered, weak and weary. 
Over Poe's extensive pleading, "till mine 

Eyes would read no more, — 
While 1 nodded, nearly na[)ping, 

Suddenly there came a tapping, 
Tapping at my clouded brain, as things 

Had often tapped before. 
" 'Tis th' examinations coming, and 

Mv brain is all a' bumming; 
Only this and nothing more." 

O'er my spirit sleep was stealing, and 

My form was slowly kneeling, 
Till at last with senses rei'ling, on 

.Mv desk my bead reclined, 
liut my dreams, my thoughts unchanging, 

O'r my future wildly ranging. 
Wandered ceaselessly until there came 

Examination time. 
Now with spirits quite undaunted. 

I my knowledge proudly llauntcd, 
Flaunted over many pages, till at last 

My task was o'er. 

Then there came the proud commencement, 

.•\nd at last my staunch entrenchment 
In an office, all my own, and with a 

Sign upon the door : 
And my shelves were tilled with plenty, 

From the works of Coke to Ilenty, 
And they made a proud apjjcarance, 

l-'ven this, if niithing more. 

Now my head was swelling grandly 

As I pictured just how blandly 
I would smile, and suavely s|)eak, when 

Clients crossed my threshold o'er. 
'Please sir! you will be thv gainer if 

You pay a small retainer 
Of a couple hundred dollars, 

( )r perhaps a little more." 

Now imagine my excitement, as I 

Noticed the alightmcnt 
Of a fair but troubled client from 

Her carriage at the door! 
So that now amid the beating of my heart, 

I stood repeating 
"Lo! some fair and troubled client 

Stands outside my office door."' 

Presently my soul grew stronger ; hesitating 

Then no longer. 
Said 1, ".M)- dear lady, truly thy 

iMirgiveness I implore; 
I'.ut the fact is, Pm so busy, that 

.M \ head is almost dizzy, 
.And .'o faintly you were tapping, tapping 

At my office door. 
That ! scarce was sure I heard yon," — 

Here T o]x'ned wide the door: — 

Darkness there and notliing mere! 

For a: last did I awaken, with illusions 

Greatly shaken. 
To the knowledge that my visions 

Sinifjly were an idle dream : 
F(^r I had drenil ajiparitions of some 

1 lorrible conditions 
That still clung to me, and showed 

Me that things are not what they seem. 

Tho' since then I have been working, and 

Aly duties never shirking. 
All my life involves realities of visions 

Seen before, 
.■\nd distinctly I remember, tho' Pve 

v'^ince become a member 
C)i ilie bar. there irJver came, a client, 

l\ven to my door, 

.Ml ! young friend your great air-castles 

Are but waving, flapping tassels 
On the cap of one who isn't yet 

Admitted to the bar ; 
And as you shall seek admission, 

May you shun that apparition 
Of long years, without a client 

Even knowing where you are.

The young Law Student loves to pose 

Before a lawbook-laden table ; 
Not much of Law he knows, but knows 

The very latest stunt of ]\ label. 

He would not like to say, of course, 

The Law that governs race tracks sporty, 

But he knows all about the horse 
That ought to run in just one-forty. 

He cannot say just when and how 
A very youthful pair may marry, 

But he can tell you, anyhow, 

The newest trick of Tip-toe Carrie. 

Not much he knows, and hides it well, 

Of raven-hued miscegenation, 
But, oh, the volumes he can tell 

( )f (idrilon's T\\(i A. M. Cullatioii. 

His knowledge of the I^aw is weak, 
In many ways, in many features. 

But if of Chorus Girls you speak. 

He'll tell you all about the creatures. 

Yet he's all right, and he'll he there

On the Saturday afternoon when the junior class picture was taken, a lovely young lady, 

who was i-vitlcntly the purchasing; aj^cnt for a im-iia,s;crie, jiassed slowly Ix^fore the campus of 
the University of Maryland. 

She attract<;d the attention of our genial young friend, Marcus Sh-r-v-r, who decided to 

adopt her, and to that end set o(T at full speed to inform her of his intention. 

In a few minutes Marcus returned, and, we judged, from the disappointment on his speak- 
ing countenance, that he had failed to get a job, and that the young lady aforesaid did not intend 
to draw on the university for any additions to her menagerie, or at least to the monkey department. 
We feel sorry for Marcus, because it looks to us like a golden opportunity had glided silently 
into the past. 




Ye Prelude — 

Judge Plielps, in teaching Equity, 

Has the queerest system yet. 
He first proceeds to range his class, 
Bv order of the Alphabet. 

Ye Law — 

"Judge So-and-so rendered the opinion, 
And upon the facts thus commented. 
As such-and-such, laid down the rule. 
lUit fudge So-and-so dissented." 

Likewise Ye 
Preliminaries — 

Next you write your name and age, 

Address and occupation ; 
Things you studied while at school. 
And forgot on your vacation. 

Obervations on 
Ye Case System — 

Judge thinks "case system" is the best, 

A reason let me conjecture: 
Why case citing is not as good. 
As one instructive lecture. 

Ye Manner 
Thereof — 

Each one is allowed five minutes, 

To prepare and cite his case, 
The junk that some of them get off, 
'Tis really a disgrace. 

Ye Student 

. .and Hys Case — 

"The case that I've selected. 

Is Andrews vs. Spates, 
And you'll find it reported 
In Eighth United States." 

Ye Facts — 

"The facts of the case as given 

Are about substantially these: 
The appellant appealed on demurrer. 

From the Court of Common Pleas." 

Ye Poet Disap- 
Case System — 

Just how one understands his case, 

Can readily be understood. 
By taking an actual incident. 

To show the "case system's" good. 

Bright Remark By 
John Phelps, Esq. — 

Said Mr. Phelps to Lucas 

With the former's usual grace, 
"How came the persons mentioned. 
To be Plaintiffs in this case?" 

Bright Remark 
By Bill Lucas — 

"Well," said Lucas after thinking 

And his face was all agrin, 
"To use a slang expression. 
They simply 'Initted in!'" 


'Ye Conclusion of 
Ye Whole Matter — 

We're each supposed to cite a case 

When it conies to our turn, 
And the facts which we recite 
Are the only ones we learn. 



Tlllv TaiKv Law Club was organized in tlie early part of tlu- fall terin, 1!H)4. taking the place 
of the .Maryland Literary Society. The object of the club is to create a closer intellectual 
fellowship among the students, and to train them in discussing legal questions. 

.•\t its inception, a limit was set upon the membership, the founders of the organization believ- 
ing twenty-five a number sufficient for successful working ; later, however, this limitation on the 
membership was removed. 

The exercises are held weekly, on Tuesday evening at S.iri.and consist of thf trial of a case 
based on an agreed statement uf fads. Tlie cases are so arranged as to he e(|iially balanced, involv- 
ing one or more leading, and sometimes conllicting princii)les of law. A judge, usually a member 
of tiie Senior Class, is selected by the counsel in each case, whose decision reviews and decides 
11]" Ml the arguments submittid by the resiiectivc counsel. 

The club thus far has proven of great benefit to those whose have given it their time and at- 
tention. Believing that the same benefit will accrue to all who become members of the club, the 
officers take this opportunity to extend a ])iiblic and cordial invitation to students of the University 
generally, who are interested in the objects of the club, to become members of it. 

The officers for the present term are as follows : President, William Booth Settle ; V'ice- 
President, A. Taylor Smith ; Secretary, Fred. B. Noble. 


Till-'. Class of 1905, from the day of its entrance inin tlie University in a chaotic and embryonic 
state — its Veal Period, so to speak — up to the ])risenl day of grace, w ben by dint of natural 
growth in wisdom, hard work and good fellowship, it has bloometl intt> that perennial and 
splendid thing — "the best class that ever was graduated from Old .Maryland" — has always been 
noted for enterprise. That has been its characteristic from the beginning — breaking forth in new 
l)laces, setting many and good i)recedenls. 

It is customary in otln-r sebnols and (iiiite i)roiuT, we think, that those exalted and distinguished 
characters, the members of the Senior Clas.'^, should be designated in some distinctive manner — 
marked out from the rank and file of the school as men apart. The familiar methods of distin- 
guishing the Senior vary all the way from special ])rivileges in the way of flirtation, as at West 
I'oint and .\nnapolis, to the wearing of a ]).irtionlar style of collar or tie, carrying canes or smoking 

There has b(.'en niadt- an arlislic and Ijcanlifnl design fur the watcb-fdli of the Class pi 
1905. This was especially designed to order for the class ; there has been nothing like it before, 
there will not be anything like it. It is distinctive and exclusive. This ornament will be worn by 
members of the Class of 1905 only, and by liiose upon wbuni tbf Class bestows it, as betokening 
its approval of those favored ones. It will bo for years to come that by wbieb the l!tn5 man will 
be known. 

We believe that in this we are establishing a significant custom and a worthy jirecedent. which 
we hereby bequeath to all succeeding senior classes ; one which shall continue as long as our Alma 
.Mater shall crown the city with her usefulness.

So soon ? The tinkk of the prompter's bell ! 
The players bow, and pass out, one by one — 
The play at last is done, the tapers fade — 
'Tis time to think: "Have we done well or ill?"

Some folly, worthy strife, some growth we trust 
Toward nianhodd true. P.ccause wc nnist. we go

Tlic curtain down upon our college life! 
"li.vciiiit oinncs." So we all go out 
As schoolboys now, untried, to cope with men.

And bear our worthy parts awhile. Once more — 
What time that Death shall speak the epilogue — 
Then surely shall be writ of us again 
Those solemn words once more. "They all go o 
That is the time of test, the final summing up, 
A judgment and decree with no appeal. 

Oh, may this be the verdict spoken then —

F( )|\ till' first lime "Tkkka .M \kiai:" sweeps acriiss this land

it has been the one desire of the liusiness Manager, with the

Special instructions in Continuous Gum, Bridge and Crown Work. 

Each year since its organization has added to the reputation and prosperity of this Dental School, until 
now its graduates in almost every part of the world are meeting with the success that ability will ever com- 
mand. The past session was the most successful one ever held, and visiting dentists from all parts of the 
country have expressed themselves as being astonished and gratified at the ability shown by the students 
when ojicratiMf; npiin ])atients in the Intinnaiy. Forniing one of the departments of one of the oldest Univer- 
sities in this cduiitry. its diploma is cviM-ywhcre recognized and honored. 

The instructions in both operating and mechanical dentistry is as thorough as it is possible to make it, 
and embraces everything pertaining to dental art. Th;" advantages which the general and oral surgical clin- 
ics, to which the dental students are admitted, as indeed to all the lectures the University affords, cannot be 
overestimated. The many thousands of patients annually treated in the University Hospital, and other 
sources, afford au abundance of material for the dental infirmary and laboratory practice, and the oral sur- 
gery clinics. 

The Dental Infirmary and Laboratory building is one of the largest and most complete structures of the 
kind in the world. The Infirmary is lighted by sixty-five large windows, and is furnished with the latest 
improved operating chairs. 

The Dental Infirniary and l.-ilioralory :irc (i]]i'U daily (except Suiid.-iys) during the entire year for (he re- 
ception of patients, and the practice tVfr dental student -s has increased to such an extent that all the students 
during the past sessions have had an ahujalance of practical work in both operative and prosthetic dentistry. 
These means for practical instruction htive already assumed such large iiroportions that the supply has been 
beyond the needs of the large classes in attendance during the past sessions. 

The exceedingly large number of patients for the extraction of teeth affords ample facilities for practi- 
cal experience to every student. It has again bei-onie necessary to enlarge the dental building, making the 
Infirmary nearly one hundred feet in length and a Laboratory eighty feet long by forty-three wide. 

The qualifications for admission and gr.iduation are those adopted by the National Association of Dental 
Faculties and State P>oards of Dental Examiners. 

Qualifications for Graditation. — The candidate must have attended three full courses of lectures of 
seven months each, in different years, at the REGULAR or Winter sessions in this institution. As equiva- 
lent to one of these, one course in any reputable Dental College will be accejited. Graduates of medicine can 
enter the .lunior Class. The matriculant must have a very good English education ; a diploma from a repu- 
table literary institution, or other evidence of litcM-ary qualifications will be received instead of a preliminary 
examination. All students have great advantages in operative and mechanical dentistry in this institution 
through out every session. 

The Regular ok Winter Session will begin on the first dav of October of each year, and will terminate 
May 8th. 

The Summer Session for practical instruction will commence in April and continue until the regular 
session begins. Students in attendance on the Summer Session will have the advantage of all the daily Sur- 
gical and Medical Clinics of the University. 

The fees for the Regular Session are $100. Demonstrators' fees included; Matriculation fee, $5; Diploma 
fee, for candidates for graduation, .?30 ; Dissecting ticket, $10. For Summer Session no charge to those who 
attend the following Winter Session. 

Board can be obtaincKl at from $.3..50 to .$5.00 per week, according to quality. 

The University i)rize and a number of other prizes will be specified in the annual catalogue. Students 
desiring infonuatioii and llie ••ninual cntalogne will be careful to give full address, and direct their letters to

A Westpni congressman whose 
testimonial of a patent medicine 
has of late apiieareil in all the 
papers, has recently received a 
remarkable letter from a person 
who evidently thinks the con- 
gressman has the remedy on sale 
as a sort of congressional side 
line. The letter follows : 

"Dear friend & statesman : I 
rite you the nrliest dait to he so 
cind as to do me a fafor. I haf

medsin naturs sweet refrane. I 
haf never trid an injini doc hut

"P. S. — I will sen prise by re- 
turn male." 

.V certain man, having reail 
somewhere that "Opportunity 


knocks (inly once at each one's 
door," concluded to sit up all 
night for fear he would miss the 
c.-ill. So, while he was sitting' 
near the door, there came a 
heavy knock thereon. When he 
opened the (hior a stranger seized 
him and beat him and took his 
money and garments, and chided 
him for lielng so easy. "But." 
said the nnin, thinking to excuse 
himself, "I thought it was oii- 
lioi'Uinity who knocked." "So 
it was," respondcill the other, "but 
it was my opporrunity." Moral: 
It is better to carry your op- 
portunity with you.
