green, rank foliage of rarest beauty and every k i n d seemed striving for a place nearest to the grassy paths t h a t led through t h e dell, and wild flowers of varied hue decorute the green sward. This scene, in its beauty, far surpassing all description, is animated by the twittering of countless birds flitting about among the branches of the trees; by the demonstrations of satisfaction a n d happiness from the m a n y wild animals which here find pleasant shelter from the heat; by the monotonous dronning of insects wanne d into life and song by t h e subdued sun Âťs his caloric rays are sifted through t h e leafy boughs, and by the gentle voice of t h e breeze in t h e tree tops wafting t h e sweet plaintive note of the song bird; by the merry song of the brook as it goes playfully leaping past the hindering rocks.

God, t h e Creator, made man of the dust of t h e earth and called him t h e " L o r d of Creation," and placed him in t h e most lovely spot on earth, now called t h e "Garden of .Eden." Here was everything the capricious desires of man could possibly ask.

The Romans carried me to Britain o'er the sea and here I continued my eventful career and in a few years saw the most rapid advance of civilization I had ever seen. But when I came to America in the seventeenth century I thought surely my time had come to settle down to a life of inactivity. Well, I was lost in the woods of the wild west and for a time lived the life of a hermit. But before I knew what was coming, here I was speeding along assisting in a civilization the like of which I had never seen. I was kept busy for everything seemed to he in a h u n y — now 1 was flying along over the steel rails, next on a car wheel, now adorning a millinery display in a show window, then revolving with lightning like rapidity on an electric machine, now growing in a rose bush, then in an incandescent lamp jumping about like I did several million years before, now resting as dust on the granite palace. I think T can say my life has been one of interesting changes. One day admired for beauty, the next despised and shunned, then lost to the world for centuries. At one time 1 occupied a place in a brain cell of my interpreter and inspired this bit of history. By the time this reaches you, I may be burning in the furnace or lamp, or sailing thro the waves of the Pacific, or looking out on the buSy world from

the show window or, perhaps, passing thro an ordeal in the chemical laboratory. In my long and checkered career I have found that my utility depends upon the company I keep, altogether. Whether the world admire or loath me, love or hate me, scorn or pity me, use or reject me, depends entirely upon my surroundings. THE PRELIMINARY

CONTEST.

The long expected, much-talked-of, and to some, the til-fated February 1st, has come and gone. The Oracles have been duly consulted and the victor has been crowned. For several weeks the oratorical contest has excited considerable interest in the college community, which grew into a white heat as the time of decision approached. Class meetings were held in the interest of the contestants, and groups of students might be seen discussing in low tones the merits and demerits of the orators. Yards and yards of ribbon were purchased, and each class having a representative in the contest made full arrangements how they would dispose of the honois to be placed upon their fellow classmate. The evening for decision arrived. The chapel was tastefully decorated with a background of old gold and navy blue, nicely set off with the cardinal and steel gray of '95, the Nile green and shell pink of '98. and in the ah-

As the contestants entered t h e room it was with difficulty t h a t their admirers could refrain from an outburst of enthusiasm.

T h e time has come when it is t h o u g h t best on the part of the Editor-in-Chief of this paper t h a t she should yield her place to other hands.

While we have h a d some experience in connection with t h e work it has been of a different character, and t h a t in which t h e mistakes and nature of the work was not so plain to the public. There will be some other changes in t h e editorial staff. Miss Ella Macy will act as Assistant Editor — she was a member of the staff last year as one of the local editors. Miss Stanley will act in conjunction with E l m a Brown as local editor. Fred Scott and Nate D. Elliott will also be included in t h e start. Others will also contribute notes of different kinds. If at any time there are articles t h a t you do not approve, do not go to the one you m a y t h i n k is t h e author of t h e article, but come to t h e Editor to state your objections, us lie will be responsible for all tilings t h a t may occur in the paper. This is the the time to decide w h a t could be done to beautify the college campus. There should be trees planted and the lawn beautified. Why c a n ' t each class do something along this line? They should endeavor to leave the college in a better condition when they go out from its walls t h a n when they come, and this is one of the wavs in which this can be done.

In a qunlut New Eugland farmhouse More than eighty years ago, A little boy was born one day Mid winter's falling snow. Of sturdy Quaker parentage, With sweet-voiced "thou" and " t h e e " Our gracious Quaker poet Came to bless humanity.

He played upon the hillside In the meadow, by the creek, And birds and bees and blossoms Told him their secrets sweet, Then he translates their language To our eager waiting ears, As he teaches us life's lessons — Its hopes and Joys and fears

By my glowing winter fireside I read from the treasured store And the pages to ine seem talking As I turn them o'er and o'er. 1 see the laughing Barefoot Boy — The Schoolhouse by the Koad — Maud Muller mid unraked clover — And hear what the Bees are ToM. F:*r me the Tent on the Beach was pitched By the waves of the eastern sea. For me the Snow Bound cottage fire Is burning cheerily. I hear the pines of Kamoth hill For My Playmate making moan — And see Cobbler Keezar's VUion f n the rolling of his stone.

Then backward I turn the pages To the tale of our country's strife, And The Slave Ships awful darkness, Aud the black man's fettered life. I can feel the poet's anguish As with man aud God he pleads To crush this monster, slavery — And relieve the black man's needs.

Then —brave, old BarbaraFrietchiu Witli Freedom's flag held fast, Defies the nut-brown soldiers. And the flag Hies free at last! And now —the war Is over And cheerful Labor Sougs With Thanksgiving's golden Pumpkin Help us forget our wrongs' Across our western prairies The Kansas Emigrants go — While the good Three Bells, on the ocean, Saves the ship that's sinking slow. And the Pennsylvania Pilgrim, The Quaker of Olden Time, With the "Light of Life" around him Makes enrth ilmnst sublime

And now, I reach My Birthday, Aud My Soul and I commune, While the poet's gentle, kindly words Put my heart in glad attune. You wonder I love this volume With its tales so sweetly told? II breaths of love and heaven And f love Its writer old!
