INTRODUCTION.
SE launch THE ARGO into the sea of School Annuals, with no apology for its appearance.
\ It is its own excuse for being and we trust it is the forerunner of an illustrious line,
for we think this year a point of departure in the history of the Seminary. To say
nothing of the changes in, and additions to the faculty, the improvements in the science department,
and the introduction of several new courses, THE ARGO chronicles the First Florida Inter-Collegiate
Debate, of which the W. F. S. was both instigator and winner, the first year's work of the Florida Inter-
Collegiate Oratorical Association, and other manifestations of a more vigorous college spirit among the
students, hitherto unknown in the life of the institution. With the purpose of fostering good-fellowship,
and a closer organization of the students, and with a desire to promote the best interests of our Alma
Mater, we introduce to the public the first issue of our annual.

TO N--.


"My dear little N- whom I tenderly love,
As the vine loves the branch it doth fondly
entwine,
There's nothing on earth or in heaven above,
That I for a place in thy heart would resign.


To see thee, to touch thee, to watch thy bright
face,
To hear one affectionate accent from thee
Were dearer than fortune, or fame or great place,
Thou fairest of flowers that ere blossomed for
me.


To feel thy heart beat and to press thy soft lips,
To hear their warm thrill in the depths of my soul,
Then happier am I than immortal who sips
Ambrosial nectar from Jupiter's bowl."- C.




ADVICE TO PREP. BOYS.
LWITII APOI.OGIES '10 FRANK STANTON.]
Whenever Murpbree shall deem it best
To give a "hickory tea,"
Fear not to trust. His mighty hand
Will send thee to a happy land
And you will feel and understand
That Murphree knows best.

UCH a class! Indeed it is to be congratulated in its brilliant career. Such a record Shall I
say it was attained by a fortunate accident, or by faithful application of the means to the
S end in view? As much pleasure as possible, with as little work as possible, for "Too much
work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."
As -- Preps," there were forty-eight of us. Not very much was accomplished, because there were
too many to carry out our plans successfully. "Too many hands in a pot always spoils a dish." How-
ever, certain ones generally managed to borrow a "key" to Dubb's arithmetical problems, from the
Prof.'s desk, (when he was not looking).
The next year there were not so many of us, for only a chosen few passed the Exams. It was
then that we decided our future career, by choosing that interminable Latin work. But we made
good u-ie of our opportunities and laid a firm foundation for the Latin-prose, which was to begin the
next year.
The third year we began to translate Caesar, which we found very difficult. But fortune kindly (.)
favored us, and one bright morning we found nicely put away, in his stable in the library, a beautiful
little "pony." How many times it now became necessary to consult the Encyclopedia." As only
two were allowed to go at one time, we had to 'ride and tie;" but we found it much easier to go
riding over the level ground on a "pony" than to blindly feel our way along rough passages. Staying
after school, however, for Latin-prose until five P. M. every day for a week, when the State troops were
encamped here, was really torturing. But, if we must do a thing, we must; so resigning ourselves to
our fate, we determined to make the best of it. And this we did (?).
But all joys (?) must have an end; so ours of the third year class were ended when we became
Freshmen. Then began the trials of the French class, added to those of Latin-prose. Two or three of

SENIOR CLASS OF 1901.











our jolly thirteen took Greek in preference to French; but the Greek Class has gone to keep company
with other historical records of the Seminary.
This was the Freshman Class, and fresh as were its members, it was left in the shade the follow-
ing year when we entered All wise fool's class,"-Sophomore.
It was in this class that we made such a reputation for ourselves, and I think a special chapter
ought to be dedicated to its history. We were still known as "That Latin-prose Class," or "That
Greek History Class."
Now I think that the Greek History was as much of a star as the Latin-prose Class, and shall tell
one of its jokes (?\.-The so-called "Peanut Party." One day one of us was reciting-which was
something unusual-and so interested was the Prot. in the recitation that he did not notice the peanut
party. Finally, when he did turn his attention to the rest of the class, it was just in time to see two
of the young ladies as they were about to eat their last peanut. These two, being kept in, confessed
that they had been eating peanuts. But "Loyalty to Each Other," being the class motto, they did
not tell on any one else. Yet it hurt them to be the first and only ones ever to be caught up with,
especially at this time when all were in the mischief. So, while walking home together, they
evolved a plan to get some of the others into the trouble without telling on them. They phoned to
one of the girls of the class-call her B.-that the Prof. had given them twenty-five demerits, but
that he would take them off if she would go to him and penitently beg his pardon. Here is the
dialogue that followed the next morning:
B. Professor, did you take off my demerits ? "
Prof. What demerits, Miss B. ? "
B. "Those you gave me yesterday."
Prof. (watching her closely) "What did I give you demerits for yesterday?"
B. "Because I ate some peanuts in class." (Class explodes-with laughter, and B. knows some
one has played a trick on her).

Prof. "Now, Miss B, you have let some one fool you. I did not give you any demerits, but
since you have told me yourself, I shall take the trouble to see if anyone else was eating."
As was our custom, (?) every one confessed. The result may well be conjectured. We never
again ate peanuts in class.
This is only one of the Sophomore jokes on record. But the memory of all is carried on with us,
as happy reminders of the year.
The distinguishing characteristic of the Junior year was the Bright Chemistry Class. Now we
could go to the chemical laboratory when we wished to work up back experiments; but you may be
sure there was more fun than work, except when the Prof. entered the room. Then every one was
interested in some one important experiment, which ever stood in readiness in case of an emergency,
and this one generally the making of oxygen.
It was during this year that our "pony" was found, and 'riding" further forbidden. Now per
haps older and wiser heads will think it best to do without '-ponies," but we always favored any
modern invention devised to aid in a student's transportation over the royal road to graduation.
When this book appears, our work as seniors and as members of the W. F. S. will have nearly
finished. Although we will be glad to receive the coveted sheepskins, it cannot be but with a feeling
of sadness that we refer to that time when we will close our relations as active students of the West
Florida Seminary. We realize that we have not made the best of our opportunities, yet will the
remembrance of our Alma Mater be one of the brightest pages on "Memory's Scroll."

Behold the Argo, queenly ship,
That ship so strong and bold,
Thro' stormy seas, thro' oceans old,
No wind can stay her trip.

The Argo, forward we her launch,
With fifty oars so strong,
With Argonauts who bear no wrong,
What ship so brave and staunch

Now thro' the deep and warring oceans,
Now over silvery calms,
Unstrained she glides, a queen in arms,
All filled with deep emotions.


THE ARGO.
Not for petty gain and lust,
Not for idle cheer,
But to bring a prize so dear
As this annual, we trust.

Onward let her bravely glide,
Let her banners wave,
Argonauts, Oh! crew so brave,
Guard her with true pride.

Let Orpheus' strains her spirits buoy,
Apollo's lyre ring out,
And Argonauts, with hearts so stout,
Row forth, ahoy! ahoy!

HISTORY.
T HIS class was organized at the opening session of 1893, with an enrollment of forty-four
bright boys and girls, each with the high determination of graduating with the first hon-
ors of their class. Happy to say, as these six years of diligent study and close appplica-
tion have rolled by, we have continued to grow intellectually; but numerically we have sadly de-
creased, having at present an enrollment of only five-three big ugly boys and two lovely young ladies
who are not afraid of syllogisms and higher mathematics.
Notwithstanding the fact we are the smallest class in college, (only one excepted) if our readers
will forbear a few phrases of the Ciceronian style, we will assume the authority of saying that we are
the best all-round class in college, standing second to none, unless it be the Normal class, and this
class cannot properly be regarded as a regular class of the Seminary.
For the truth of the above statement we will not impose upon you the embarrassing task of con-
sulting the Professors of the institution, as a class of one of our neighboring institutions did, but will
refer you to a more accessible witness-the president of the class.
We take pride in stating that our class has shared very flatteringly in the public honors of the
college and bids fair to turn out two statesmen, a physician and a stenographer, of which any State
might well be proud.

Historian.

THANKSGIVING.


Thanksgiving among the red clay hills of old Leon was spent quietly
and, with a few exceptions, without a fatality.
Among the, most notable events was the hunt of Prof. P- In the
"wee wee" hours of the morning, before old Sol had reared his head suffi-
ciently to light with his smiling rays the classic shades of old Tallahassee,
the silent, peaceful slumbers of the boarders at "The Columns" was dis-
turbed by a rummaging noise in the apartments of the Seminary's English
Professor.
Just at the crack of day, when all nature seemed serene, the Professor made his start down
Adams Street in the direction of Lake Jackson. According to Professor B- who says he saw the
start, Professor P- wore his best silk hat, patent leathers, preacher's and politician's coat, high
standing collar, and silk tie, etc. On his shoulders he had pinned a silk handkerchief to keep the
gun from soiling his new coat.
Nothing was seen of him during the day, but as the sun was fading away over the western hills
he bore proudly down the boulevard with a duck swung over his shoulders. Never conqueror bore
more precious prize than the duck Professor P- brought back from his hunt. At the gate he was
given three cheers, and at the supper table he was given much praise as he told his anxious and
earnest listeners how he had accomplished the wonderful feat of killing a duck on the wing, half way
across Lake Jackson. Never man was prouder than he at this moment. Even Miss smiled at
his handsome mustache, and Mrs. promised him a fruit cake, while Professor Calhoun offered to
buy him a Spanish book, that he might learn the only piece of knowledge in the world left for him
to know.

26


IIIIIII I I


. --













In the midst of P- 's glee, Professor B- entered the dining room with the much talked of
duck in his hand, and to P- 's utter astonishment, surprise and chagrin, said, "Mr. P- I hold in
my hand a tame duck which you ran down and killed this afternoon with a stick (here he showed the
bruise on the duck's head). The owner of the duck is waiting on the outside for her pay."
W. B. C.



"What did you publish this book for anyway, I'd like to know?" sarcastically inquired an irate
student of the other party, talking to an editor of THE ARGO.
"For one dollar a copy, in advance, and you owe us for four copies," replied the editor.

COLLEGE POLITICS.


When an election is a game of three,
Two hearts can win but pain,
While the third one shares the joy,
All had hoped to win.


Two, in their bitter sadness,
Smile-lest the other see,
But one, in his new-found gladness,
Forgot 't was a game of three.
W. B. C.

HISTORY.

HIS, the beginning of another school year, finds the Freshman Class of 1900, or, rather, a part
of it; full-fledged Sophomores, ready for the work of the coming season. In many respects
our class is one of the best in the school, for since our entrance we have had a most pros-
perous career. True, our ranks have often been thinned by the examinations, but 1901 finds us with
a roll of ten members, one of the largest Sophomore classes for many years. In our studies we do not
claim to be the best, but so far we have never been without a medalist at Commencement, and our
members have been on the winning side in the Inter-Collegiate debate and have won medals for school
debating. As to the ability of our class in athletics, I think we may safely claim to be the best, for on
the football eleven of last year we had six men. This fact alone proves that among us are some of
the best athletes in the school. Judging from the past record, I think we may hope in 1903 to carry
to graduation one of the largest classes in the history of the school.
F. B. WINTHROP,
Historian.

HISTORY.

HIS Class of about forty bright-faced boys and girls entered the Seminary in the fall of 1897.
A merrier set would have been hard to find. But, alas, many no longer answer to the
roll-call. Some already have gone out to battle with the world, meeting its problems and
making history for themselves. One of our fairest girls has embarked upon the stormy sea of matri-
mony and one of our most loved and highly esteemed young men, Arie Donk, is numbered among
those who sleep to wake no more. We miss him more and more as each day passes; we miss him on
the play ground where his justness and kindness won the admiration of his fellow students; we miss
him in the school-room where his gentlemanly conduct and faithfulness to his duties won the esteem
of both teacher and pupil. Those who remain are not discouraged, but will endeavor to improve their
opportunities and make up in quality what they lack in quantity, and, on a balmy night of June of
1904, receive the coveted diplomas for which they shall have toiled so faithfully.
ELISE DAVIS,
Historian.







"What is an anecdote, Bilmac," asked Miss M-
"A short, funny tale," answered Bilmac.
"Good," said Miss M- "Now write a sentence on the board, containing the word."
Bilmac pondered deeply and finally wrote: "A rabbit has four legs and one anecdote."

THE TRIP OF THE ARGO TO THE FLORIDA VOLCANO.

NE bright morning in the early part of January, while the snow (?) was still on the ground,
the Argo was launched just north of the Cascade, in the St. Augustine River, on this, her
First and most important voyage.
For the last quarter of a century, the Florida volcano had occasioned much research in the realms
of science. Party after party had been sent out, under the leadership of LIVINGSTON, Stanley, Bierly,
and other men noted in scientific and explorative research, but each signally failed. One expedition
in particular called forth much press and individual comment, for the reason that it proved the impossi-
bility of a land party's ever reaching the volcano and showed the difficulties attendant upon any voy-
age which might prove a success. This party was under the leadership of the three great men above
mentioned and three months were passed in active preparations for the trip. On the 27th day of
December, 1889, the cavalcade set forth from the capitol building, confident of success and encouraged
by the applause of the citizens. They penetrated to within three miles of the volcano, when their
compass became disarranged in some way and for days they wandered aimlessly about the seemingly
never ending morass. On the morning of the fifth day Mr. Bierly volunteered to climb a tree to
view the trackless forests to find a way of exit. His ascent was accomplished with much difficulty
and danger, but his labors were destined to prove vain to the anxious watchers below. Just as he
began his descent, the limb to which he was holding broke and he came tumbling to the ground in a
much shorter time than it takes to tell. This ended the expedition begun under such auspicious
circumstances. After eleven days of unceasing toil, the other members of the party were able to bring
Professor Bierly back to Tallahassee. He had been rendered unconscious by his fall and for six weeks
lay between life and death in the Sanitarium.
So it is an easy matter for anyone to see that the brave commander of the Argo had no little
undertaking in accomplishing his sworn intention of solving the mystery of the Volcano. After six
39


~P .


___r j










days of uneventful voyage the Argo reached the edge of the boundless swamps surrounding the goal
of its ambition. The small boats were lowered, but for seven days their search was without success.
On the evening of the seventh day as the boats were turning shipward, a canoe impelled by a single
paddle was seen to round a point and make for what appeared to be a large oak tree. As the canoe
reached the edge of the forest she suddenly disappeared. The boats immediately gave chase, and in
the dark shadow of the trees the forward one had run into the trunk of the tree before she could be
stopped. It appeared that the boat would be dashed to pieces, when lo! the bark of the tree opened
as if it were a folding door and the little craft glided into a calm narrow channel leading through the
trees. Early the next morning the boats reached a small clearing after no worse mishaps than several
hand-to-hand conflicts with those pesky little insects laboring under the ponderous cognomen of
"Must-eat-us." Just as the last boat reached the clearing, three men stepped from behind a huge tree
and politely asked us to disembark, punctuating their remarks with the click, click, of three dangerous
looking Winchesters. It took us two hours to explain to those men that we were intent on no
hostile motive, but when we did succeed in assuring them of our peaceability, they treated us right
royally.
"But what is the mystery of the volcano ? you may ask, "and what was it like ?"
It was just like an ordinary old-fashioned washerwoman's clothes pot with a large fire underneath
it and the ingredients of pure old Cuban Arguedente Whiskey inside-some of which is now on tap in
the laboratory of the W. F. S., for the exclusive use of curious visitors. Try some.
A. B. C.



Prof. Long, to Clark (dictating Latin Prose Composition), "Slave, where is thy horse ?"
Clark, (looking up and much startled) It is under my seat, sir, but I was not using it."

WEST FLORIDA SEMINARY.


I.
A grand old school is the W. F. S,,
Of Floridian schools it is the best,
It won its fame in a great debate,
And in everything else it 's up to date.

II.
It has made its mark in years two score,
And will be the best in that many more.
Just give us a trial and we '11 act our part,
For our faculty (and even our students) are smart.


III.
We have once already shown a city her fate,
By whipping her college in a great debate;
So you see we 're entering the gate of fame,
And over the world will soon have a name.

IV.
We can get up a show and be praised by all,
We come out with glory in even base-ball.
Since the day we started, we 've been going fast,
And will do in the future as we have in the past.


We have two normal classes for teachers you know,
To prepare them better before they go
Out in the world a school to teach,
So you see they practice what they preach.

ANAXAGOREAN LITERARY SOCIETY.




_ __~~_










HISTORY.


F the history of the Anaxagorean Society there is little to tell. We who constitute this
society were once members of a Society, not a hundred miles from here, known as the
c Platonic Debating Society, and while members of that august body were styled politically
"the split-tail faction." Now we cannot account for the origin of this title any more than we can for
the "Kiltonic" one, but when we left the old Society there was no split in our ranks. Dissatisfac-
tion with the unjust treatment of the opposing faction, who were in the majority, led us to resign, and
before the last man of the split-tail faction had left the portals of the Platonic Hall amidst jeers and
cheers, the advance guard was filing into the opposite hall, ready to form a new society. Of course we
were severely criticized, but of our effort we submit the following for your consideration:
1. The Anaxagorean Literary Society was organized with twenty members.
2. Two of our members have been President of the Platonic Society.
3. One of our members was the organizer and first President of the Florida Inter-Collegiate
Oratorical Association.
4. One of our members holds the office of President of the West Florida Seminary Oratorical
Association.
5. One of our members holds the office of Representative of this Institution to the Florida Inter-
Collegiate Oratorical Association.
6. The Editor-in-Chief, Business Manager and Athletic Editor of THE ARGO are members of our
Society.
7. The Platonic Debating Society has refused a challenge from us for a joint debate.
8. We have challenged two State Colleges for Inter-Collegiate debates.
9. At present we have more members than the Platonic Society.
61


1 _


__ I I











10. We hold annual debates at Commencement and have a medal offered for the best debater.
11. We have prizes offered for the best debaters in the Society.
The Anaxagorean Society is yet young, but if the present unbounded success it has met is a fore-
runner of its future, then it bids fair to become the first literary and debating society of the Peninsular
State. One thing striking about this Society is the unselfish and patriotic love which its members hold
for it. They rally en masse and enthusiastically around their standard of Crimson and Black and with
their "rackety-cax" cheer its onward march.
We have six honorary members and we are proud of them. They are men who, by their sterling
integrity, perfect honesty and gifted statesmanship have made the silvery pages of Florida History
shine with a beauty that sends a patriotic thrill of joy through the breast of every native born Floridian.
No honor too great can be bestowed upon them. Their promotion and success in life is closely watched
by our members and none rejoice more to see the mantles of honor fall upon their worthy shoulders than
do our members who feel that the names of Bloxham, Lamar, Jennings, Murphree, Raney and Ellis
are indelibly linked with the name "'Anaxagorean."
We love our Society; we love our honorary members. Into the dim future we can see her, not
only the peer of any in our native State, but as one of the leading societies of the South.
For generations yet unborn in this beautiful land of ours, the fair standard of Crimson and Black
will wave triumphant from the lofty towers of the Seminary West of the Suwannee. Tallahassee's balmy
breezes will waft its simple folds and the music of the winds, as they sough gently through the tranquil
pines to greet the victorious banner, will ever murmur softly, sweetly, "Anaxagorean," while far below
our boys will greet it:
Rackety Cax- -Co-ax! Co-ax!
Rackety Cax- -Co-ax! Co-ax!
We 're the stuff! Yes we are!
Anaxagoreans! Rah I Rah! Rah Historian.

CARTER'S FAREWELL TO SPLIT-TAIL
FACTION.
[WITH APOLOGIES TO PAT MURPHY.]
Fare thee well, you Split-tail Faction,
Fare the well, you Cracker brutes;
Never more shall Carter's actions
Bear for you their merry fruits.

Never more shall the old school
See me, as it has of yore,
Working voters en masse
In the lobby-on the floor.

In no more of your caucusses
Shall I ever take a part;
I came to you with good intentions,
But I got the "marble heart."

I am done; and slow descending
Falls the curtain on my play,
While the player's never ending
Labor (?) lures him far away.

MARTIAL ANTS.
[WITH APOLOGIES TO N. c. NAPIER.]
'Twas commencement time, and down near the
gate,
'Neath the Campus pines, sat Glover and Kate.
They seemed so happy, watching the throng
Of people pass. Well, wasn'tt wrong.

And there in the midst of their laughter and
mirth,
While reposing languidly on old mother earth,
A horrible thing happened-'truth, nevertheless,
Some ants crawled onto sweet Kate's dress.

"O, look at those ants, knock them off," said
Glover, the lad,
For those insects parading made him quite mad.
"Now, don't be alarmed," said sweet Kate, the
maid,
"They're only having a dress parade."

HISTORY.

N the afternoon of December 10, 1897, some fifteen or twenty boys met in the Chapel Hall
of the Seminary, for the purpose of considering plans for the forming of a debating society.
S Mr. Whiteman was chosen chairman of the meeting and after stating the benefits to be
derived from such a society, asked the opinion of the men present in regard to the proposed movement.
After some discussion it was unanimously decided to form a society, and a committee was appointed to
draft a constitution and by-laws. After several days, we were again called together for the purpose of
hearing the report of the aforesaid committee. The report of this committee, with a few changes, was
adopted and the organization was made permanent, and from that memorable day dates the birth of the
Platonic Debating Society, whose motto has ever been, "Reason, Man's Guide."
The electives for the first term of the society were Mr. Whiteman, President, Mr. Harry Dozier,
Vice-President, Mr. G. J. Winthrop, Secretary and Treasurer, and Mr. E. G. Johnston, Sergeant-at-
Arms. These officers were elected for a term of four months and during their term the Society grew,
not only in numbers but also in strength. The question for the first annual debate at Commencement
was, Resolved, That War is Necessary for the Advancement of Civilization." Messrs. C. G. Parlin and
F. A. Hathaway were chosen to champion the affirmative, and Messrs. G. J. Winthrop and E. G. John-
ston were chosen to represent the negative. In this debate the affirmative was successful and Mr.
Hathaway was awarded the Winthrop Medal for the best debater. Soon after Mr. Clark's election to
the Presidency, a committee was appointed to arrange for the commencement debate. The committee
handed in the following report: Question, Resolved, "That the Expansion Policy of the United States
Is Detrimental to the Republic." Debaters, affirmative, Messrs. A. B. Clark and A. P. Harrison, and
negative A. L. Randolph and Arie Donk. This debate was decided in favor of the affirmative, and the
Winthrop Medal was awarded to Mr. A. P. Harrison.
It was during Mr. McIntosh's administration that the Society gained the distinction of being the
69


_.____._.lsls_ .,... ___


_ I I I -- ~la~nn~aas~











first Society in the State to propose Inter-Collegiate debating in Florida, for it was during this term
that the Platonic Debating Society challenged the Florida Agricultural College, at Lake City, for a
debate. After a few preliminary arrangements, the challenge was accepted and the question, "Resolved,
That United States Senators Should Be Elected by a Direct Vote of the People," was chosen. The
Society chose as its representatives Messrs. Paul Carter and Asa B. Clark. After allowing the visiting
Society the choice of sides, the negative fell to us. The debate was held in Monroe's Opera House
on the night of May 5, 1899, and resulted in a glorious victory for the Platonic Debating Society.
Thus was the first Inter-Collegiate debate in Florida won by the Platonic Debating Society. Closely
following the debate with the Florida Agricultural College came the Commencement debate. The
question was, "Resolved, That the Standing Army of the United States Should Be Increased." Messrs.
B. A. Meginnis and A. E. Wilson represented the affirmative and F. B. Winthrop and W. M. McIntosh
the negative. The judges decided in favor of the negative and Mr. F. B. Winthrop was the winner of
the Winthrop Medal. The last election for this year took place in February, when the following
officers were chosen: Mr. Paul Carter, President, Mr. Clyde Evans, Vice-President, Mr. John McDou-
gall, Secretary and Treasurer, and Mr. Flagg Rawls, Sergeant-at-Arms. This ends the history of the
Society up to this year and it finds us still maintaining the enviable reputation of being not only the
foremost debating society in the Seminary, but also in the State. E. G. JOHNSTON,
Historian.

Bierly said we'd go and study golden rod.

Suppose we do some courting while the lessons

SEMINARY JOURNAL AND ADVERTISER.


SIDE TALKS WITH STUDENTS.
BY TEKE AND SHINER.

Under this head we will answer any questions sent us by
Students.

UNCLE FULLER. -We do not think you would be safe in
running the Platonic Society without giving Glover a free
swing.

BILLMAc -You would be displaying poor policy to say
that you represent your Society. Lengthy Crawford and
Asabelle might challenge your statement, and from the in-
formation at hand we think they are hard to handle.

FRANK B.-We are sorry you have such a hard time fall-
ing in love and are doubly sorry that it causes you to neglect
your studies. We recommend the studying of the following
quotation: "Love seldom haunts the breast where learn-
ing lies."

MONK MEGINNIS.-It would be an unnecessary expense
to buy a bicycle. Just ride the wheels in your head. If
these wheels are out of gear, we recommend you have them
treated by Doctor Larkin.

UNCLE FULLER.-From the symptoms you describe, we
diagnose the case of your friend, Bill Johnston, as follows:
He is suffering from an aggravated case of the big head. It
is an incurable disease which frequently causes the skull to
fracture, with escape of much gas. The disease is in that
part of the head where the brains ought to be. We would
recommend hypodermic injections of fluid extract of brains
three times a day.


SHEATS.-We would advise you not to try to smother
the faculty.

WHARTON.-You do not seem to understand the origin of
the name of Cafe. We are not surprised. The secret is held
by a corporation. However, if you will investigate the
Fraters' and Friends' supper, you might be able to gain the
information desired.

NELLIE.-We think you are in error about Daisy Day be-
ing two-faced. If he had an extra one he would certainly
wear it occasionally, as his present one has about given out

HATUAWAY.-YOU ask when it is likely that Bierly will
give you 100. We think never.

B. M. S.-You ask which is the best orator in school.
This is hard to settle. Crawford, Clark, Carter, Johnston,
Mcintosh and Hathaway each claim this honor. There is
a good moral in this. Never believe what a man says con-
cerning himself, and especially when he is talking to a
young lady.

GuY L.-No, we do not think it would be degrading in
you to study spelling. After a careful perusal of your com-
munication we are of the opinion that it would prove a
material benefit.

TONY BuRNS.-Though you are not a student of this Col-
lege, yet we will answer your communication with pleasure.
We do not hesitate to say that it would be dangerous
for you to go visiting out by the College. Crawford and
Clark hold the entrance at the bottom of Clinton Street,
and the bull-dogs hold the fort at hill just opposite them.
We think you would be pursuing a dangerous policy in
making these visits.

"THE COFFIN THAT CAME FOR LEE."


1. When the lordly James its waters in mad
tumult hurled,
The shadow of death's cold angel, o'er our
South Land its wings unfurled.

2. It hovered and lingering waited, the soul of
our hero to bear,
To realms of celestial glory, where heroes no
more wield the spear.

3. A short time only it hovered, and then with its
wings outspread,
From earth's grief-stricken hearts departed,
with the soul of our lordliest dead.

4. The merciful Father in Heaven gave the hero
his tribute, Well Done!"
While the sorrowing hearts on earth bemoaned
their leader who was gone.

5. Then came the sad, sad, duty, to these stricken
hearts in gloom,
And they sought for a princely casket, their
brave one to entomb.

11. This day is a day of scoff
to say,


Oct. 2d, 1900.


6. The wild waters still surged madly
The little town around,
Nor could a casket, rich and rare,
For one so great be found.

7. When, at last, in the gloaming, a watcher on the
banks of the flowing tide,
Chanced on a rough-hewn wooden box, lying
stranded on its side.

8. And when this box was rifled, behold! the
treasure see,
For there, by the fury of the waves cast up,
was the rich coffin for Our Lee."

9. And 't was thus, by the aid of High Heaven,
that we buried our sacred dead,
While some thought our hero rewarded, and
others were filled with dread.

10. In truth 't was a marvelous tribute, sent by our
God above,
For Robert E. Lee, Our Hero, who on earth
we were proud to love.

'ers, but who will dare


That the noblest man the South ere bore was
not buried in God's own way?

INAUGURATION DAV.

_IlHERE hadn't been so much applause in the chapel of the West Florida Seminary since the
announcement of the inability of the President to attend school, as there was on the
morning of the 7th of January, when that same President told us in a few well chosen
words that there would be no session of school the next day, as we would all like to attend the in-
auguration ceremonies of Governor Jennings.
The morning passed very quietly, but the day was not destined to end without the West Florida
Seminary's entering, in no small degree, into the festivities. About two o'clock the rustics of the
militia were amazed to see a carriage, bearing unknown (to them) colors, roll rapidly down the street
towards the Leon Hotel and they gazed open-mouthed when that same carriage drove bravely back
with the newly inaugurated Governor occupying an honored seat. The drive was an honor to all
(especially the Governor). The carriage was indeed filled with celebrities, containing, besides the
Governor, two presidents and three other distinguished gentlemen. Promptly, at the stroke of three,
the carriage took its stand before the east portico of the Capitol to enable its occupants to better
review the troops.
After the parade, it was decided to take a short drive into the surrounding country. By some
egregious blunder we had been given a pair of balky horses, and it is only necessary to say that the--
98


-I


I_ I I I r I I














things balked nine times in half as many miles, to give you some idea of our enjoyment. Perhaps I
should say here that the Governor had been left at the Leon so there was no restraint put upon the
select college language (?). (I have been told by good authority that at each balking place the trees
are withered from the contaminated atmosphere and people have been forced to move their boarding
places from these dangerous vicinities for every time one breathed this air he became imbued with such
a propensity for speaking learned language that he would shock all his neighbors). At several of
these stops "Teke the Tenor" gave us selections from his large fund of popular airs. The very birds
were charmed and to this day some of them are still whistling his wonderful songs.
Although considerable Seminary language was used on the horses there was enough left to cause
the stable owner to push the police alarm on our return. Sad, but true!
Only a comparatively few students figured in the Inaugural Ball, but the way that supper of Mr.
Wilson's placed before them disappeared would have led one to think these students had hard boarding
places or else that they had'nt eaten anything for some time previous, saving up especially for this
occasion. It reminded one of the suppers of the "Fraters and Friends" of Thanksgiving when five
lucky (?) men were invited. After it was over they had between them four apples, eight oranges, and
seven bananas, (and only one of them attended recitations next day.)
It is all past and only the memory remains, but such a memory calling forth a hungry feeling in
our breasts (?) and bringing tears to our eyes.

Oh Lydia! I conjure thee,
By all the powers above,
Tell thy intent to Sybaris
In filling his heart with love.


Why fears he to cross the Tyber?
Why hates he the Sunny Plain ?
Why shuns he his own companions?
Why rides he with palsied reins ?


Why does he avoid the Quoit?
Why does he neglect the game ?
Why "cuts" he the exercises ?
I fear there's none but thee to blame ?

/s STOCK YARNS TOLD BY THE FACULTY.
W. B. LONG.
When I was in the mountains of Tennessee last summer, as I was
walking along a mountain road, I saw an old man with white hair and
a long, flowing, hoary beard, who seemed to have reached the limited
three score years and ten, sitting by a large tree crying as if his heart
would break. I asked him what was the matter and he replied that
his "pa" had just whipped him for throwing stones at his grandfather.
Amazement seized me, and finding the domicile of this modern Me-
thuselah was only a short distance further, I determined to have a look
at him. After walking perhaps a half mile, the old man, who had ac-
companied me, suddenly cried, "That's him, that's him." I looked through the trees and saw
S(Here the Professor always pauses to have his classes exclaim, "Saw what"). "I saw,"
he continued, solemnly shaking his finger at the pale and scared face of Mr. Meginniss, I saw
the old man sitting on a pine log cracking hickory nuts with his teeth." (Silence).

J. C. CALHOUN.

When I returned from Germany last summer I brought back a friend with me who was
anxious to see something of America. I was living in Washington at the time and took great
pains to show him all the best buildings, etc. But every building, or anything of note I showed
him, he would always say: "Mein Gott, Calhoun, dat ist noding, wir hab three times grosser
houses in Deutschland." So when the diurnal luminary had sunk to rest once more behind the
occidental horizon, I returned home, wondering what I should do for his amusement the next day.
