This story may be a Iitle hard on
the other professions, but it illustrates
the contention which will some day
be generally acknowledged; namely;
that farming requires the greatest
industry, keenest intellect, and most
scientific training of all the profes professions.
sions. professions. One of the most striking features of
the last census i3 the record of de decreasing
creasing decreasing population in agricultural cen"
ters and increasing population in the
great cities.
The tide of settlement which for
many years had been flowing toward
the -unoccupied lands of the country
has now turned and is now flowing to toward
ward toward the large cities. The result Is
of course easily forseen. The number
of consumers of food products is con constantly
stantly constantly growing, greater, the number
of producers smaller. This would be
cause for alarm were it not for the
fact that there have been established
in this country a number of agricultu agricultural
ral agricultural colleges and experiment stations

in which the principles of scientific ag

riculture are taught, and farm life
made more attractive.
Methods of checking the depletion
of the soil and of the recovering ex

hausted fields have now been well de

veloped and are practically applied.
Moreover, improvements in farm ma machinery
chinery machinery have rendered the labor of

the farmer more productive. I believe
it may be said with a fair degree of
accuracy that a day's skilled labor on

.the farm at the present time produc-

es twice a3 much food as it did fifty

-years ago, and although the country

districts have been to a certain ex

tent depopulated and the cities over

-populated, the supply of the products
of the soil in the way of food -and

clothing has more than kept pace with

the increase in population. Yet the cu cu-Tious
Tious cu-Tious condition has arisen that while
-the consumer in the city pays a great
deal more for what he gets and wears

4han he did a few decades 'ago, the
farmer in the country gets little, if

any more for his products.
The result of this condition of af

fairs is, that while In many respects
the cost of living on the farm has

been increased through the desire of
the farmer to give his children a bet better
ter better education and to be the possessor

of more luxuries of life, he has not

been securing a corresponding in

creas in his income. Moreover, the

Tiricfi of farm labor has creatlv in

creased. In the old days a good hand
would work on the farm by the year
for twelve or thirteen dollars a month
and -his board. This, too, meant real
work; for the farm hand was expect expected
ed expected to be up early in the morning to
help feed and care for the stock, and
perhaps with the milking, and with
only short intermissions for meals meals-his
his meals-his work went, on till dark, no matter
how long the day.
This condition was the cause for
the expression "Twelve dollars a
month, and no picture shows make
Jack leave the farni."
At the present1 time the laborer Is
not expected to start work until sev seven
en seven o'clock. He takes an hour for din din-.ner
.ner din-.ner and knocks off at six. At the
same time he is not satisfied with
seventy-five cents 6r a dollar, hut must

have a dollar and a quarter for ordin

ary labor, while at harvest his wages
rise to two dollars or more per day.

Paying cash for lab oris a burden to
the farmer which is well nigh Intol Intolerable.
erable. Intolerable. If the farmer does his own
work he must either have a very small
farm, or a very large family of boys
and girls, who, moreover,' are likely
tp leave him as soon as they reach
their majority. It is not strange,
therefore, that the cry, "Back to the
Land!" fails to appeal to the boy and
, the man in the city.
Why does the boy not the lazy boy,
but the boy of industrious habits, leave
the farm in the first place? Because
of his desire for greater opportunity.
He sees in the city a greater future
for himself than he can possibly ex-
pect on the farm, and he will continue
to go just as long as city life offers
greater chances for success and a hap happier
pier happier existence.
How then are we to stop the flowing
of the best blood of the farm to the
city? The answer is simple: Make

the farm a more productive and in inviting
viting inviting place than the city, and its pros

pects for a career more certain

It is true that it is useless to hold

tip to the future farmer prospects of

wealth, such as a few secure on Wall
Street, but on the contrary there can

One of the drawbacks of country

life is muddy and impassible roaus.
C.ncA roads are now being built

through the land, and these will do
much toward making rural life mere

pleasant, because they mean ease of

access and more intimate association

as well as economic advantages.

The electric trolly and the automo

bile are carrying the city into the

country, and making it possible for
those who have business In the city

to live in the country and have a little
farm or garden of their own. Subur Suburban
ban Suburban homes are becoming stylish. The
wise managers of great factories are
now going Into the country and build building
ing building their factories on large estates,

giving each employer a strip of land
on which to grow his own vegetables.

The city is not a place of production

but only a place of exchange, and the
wise city of the future will not invite
factories of a productive nature but

will exclude them.

Unfortunately the great rivalry be

tween cities today is not so much for

the welfare of their individual citizens.

the education of their people, wise

and economic nutrition, .libraries and
museums, but simply for population.

The home of the farmer Is now be-

ins imnroved in such a way as to

make him as. comfortable a3 if he'
lived in the city. The convenience of
water and lights, the disposal of sew sewage,
age, sewage, and such scientific methods Im

prove the sanitary conditions and
make life more comfortable and dis disease
ease disease less imminent.
All this, however, Is not sufficient
to keep the people in the .country.
The pursuit of agriculture must be become
come become more profitable if the country
is to become more inviting. Scientific
agriculture will help, but to bring the
consumer and the farmer into more
intimate contract is most important
of all. This will surely be accomplish accomplished
ed accomplished by establishing factories In rural
districts where farmers can sell direct
to the employers of the work.

'. At the present high prices for com commodities
modities commodities which the farmer must buy,
and low prices received for what he
produces, he cannot expect to be fi financially
nancially financially successful. The problem to
be solved is the regulation of the aven avenues
ues avenues of transportation and methods of
distribution not their suppression.
It might be well, though, to ask if
there are not too many railways, too
many brokers and wholesale and re

tail merchants. In other words one

of the principal problems relating to

country life is undoubtedly that which
is connected with the transportation

and distribution of agricultural pro

ducts. .

It Is a spirit of selfish commercial

ism which seems to stand in the way

of a betterment of conditions. It is
not claimed that the farmer is not

actuated by just as selfish motives
As a rule, the farmer would not hesi

tate to get a higher price, even if the
ultimate, consumer had to pay more.

But the problem is not of this charac
ter; it Is predicated on two Indisputa

ble facts: First, that the farmer Is

at present getting too little for what

he produces, and second, that the con

sumer Is paying too much for what

he consumes. Somebody or something
in between must be eliminated; not
the system, but some of its members

or practices.

If we could provide the labor of the

country with the same social and edu

cational life which we provide the la laborer
borer laborer in the city, at the end of the

year the country man would be dis distinctly
tinctly distinctly ahead. If the movement to
bring the city back to the country
succeeds, an opening would be made
for the employment of those who

might be left without an occupation.

When people come back to the farm

in the future, it will not be to lead a

life of dreary labor, but rather to en
gage in an occupation which will com
mand Intelligence and the best bus!

ness capacity.

When the city comes back to the

country, it will come with culture,
with intelligence, and with knowledge.
While the needs of the human mouth
remains constant, the skill of human
hands, and their ability to produce,
are becoming greater. As a rule,
there are two hands to each mouth,
and these hands in the far future, as
far as philosophy dares look, will be
able to supply the wants of the mouth.

her proud head and acknowledge that
she was being forced to share the po

sition of preeminence which she then

enjoyed. Scarcely did she think that
quaint little. New Amsterdam across

the Atlantic would be the nearest
rival to ancient, magnificent London.
Little did she realize what was fore foretold
told foretold when the "embattled farmers

fired that shot heard 'round the

world." Little did she foresee such an

event as took place when, on January
the eighth, eighteen hundred and fif

teen, the Americans under the lead of

Andrew Jackson, destroyed the flower

of the British army at New Orleans

and at least two thousand of the vet

erans who had followed the Duke of

Wellington in the Spanish Penninsu-

la, lay dead or wounded on the battle

field, while behind their breastworks

the Americans suffered a loss of les3
than twenty in killed, wounded and

missing. It was one of the most re

markable battles in the history of the

world, and the one by which we gain

ed the recognition of the other nations

as a power equal to themselves, and

not a union of petty states linked

oosely together, which' were expect

ed to soon disorganize, declare war on
each other and like the mighty Roman

Empire to crumble and decay. It wa3
our navy which forced England to

share with us the supremacy of the
oceans; it was our navy which com

pelled piracy to vanish forever from

the Mediterranean Sea. What fitting

events are these to lead our advance

ment to the high standard which it

has now attained!

Scarcely are we able to realize that

the tales we hear of frontier life and

the struggles of our forefathers for

liberty, which to us seem so remote,
have all transpired within the last
hundred and fifty years; that the
heroic deeds of Washington by which

he led the .American people to free freedom,
dom, freedom, were accomplished when this

country was practically a wilderness,
yet they were accomplished less than

a century and a half ago. To show
what remarkable advancement has

been made since the "Father of his

Country" was laid to rest in the tomb

at Mount Vernon, let us imagine that

we can bring him back to earth and

watch him marvel at all the changes
which have taken place in the land

which' he himself helped to establish

on the firm basis of personal freedom.

Let us take him down the broad
streets of New York and picture the
astonishment of the old hero at the

revelation of that which has taken
place -since he led that glorious old

Continental army through those nar narrow
row narrow pathways in 1776. The towering
buildings which now stretch for story
upon story toward the blue sky, stand
on the soil where in the time of this
man some unpretentious farmhouse

may have rested. Behold the magnifi

It seems a pretty safe statement
that every class has a history and

there can be no doubt that the his histories
tories histories of all classes coincide in their
most essential particulars. For this
reason and because the subject of

class history has been rather fully

treated in the past, I will indulge in

no very extensive descriptions or

brilliant oratorical outbursts.

Ruby and I were the only members

of our class that started in the be

ginning of this long struggle; she

holding up the high standards of the
A class while I showed my ambition

by progressing from the D class up to

the A.

One year later, our fair Susie and

our calm but studious Alfred entered

thereby increasing to four the number

of those who were to prove faithful.

We were in the third grade when

there came a young maiden of a very
violent disposition who stamped on

the floor as she entered, threw her

books on her desk and made a few

harsh remarks and then answered to

the roll when the name "Olivia Tof Tof-faleti"
faleti" Tof-faleti" was called out.
In the fifth year Nan, inspired by
the great progress made by our class,
enrolled as a member.
Welch Dewey, thinking he had
graduated from the Duval High
School, came to Ocala to increase and
polish his knowledge in the Ocala
school. But it was very humiliating
to Welch to be put in the sixth grade
when he thought his learning was en

titled to a place of honor in the
eighth. Welch is a lean, lank lad

with poetical, tenderness, an apologet

ic manner, and a smile which wonld

do credit to a sister of charity. He

looks down on the common herd with

a tolerant sigh and breathes an at atmosphere
mosphere atmosphere fifty per cent rarer than the
rest of us.
Next ye&r we were amazed to see
entering the room a bright star
which in no time showed itself to be
equal or superior to any other mem member
ber member of the class and also made clear
to us that we were not all the stars
in the firmament.
This new star proved to be Vivienne
Eycleshimer and she sparkled and
shone mostly in the literary course.
The eight grade, or the gateway to
higher learning, was successfully
passed, and we then entered on whit
is called our high school career.

I am not going to try to tell all
that has happened to us in the four
long years, but let me trace roughly

our course from the first days of high

school to the goal reached today.

Freshman year started with two
more volunteers. One was a native

of the sun-kissed cotton fields of

South Georgia, who needs little de

scription, for John" is a child who has

an amiable disposition and a perpetual


The other, a more unique figure

than the rest of us, strayed from her
native home in North Carolina and
had the good fortune to be taken into

the class. This specimen was Mar

garet, and the class will have to con

fess there is none like Margaret-

The studies in 'the freshman year
we all had in common. Latin espe

cially was a powerful enemy to th

boys, while mathematics was the same

to the girls. Nevertheless, we con

quered the foes of the first year of

our high school course.

We then faced sophomore year,
where we learned to trace Caesar
through Gaul, to search out the good
and evils of modern history, and to
delve into the mysteries of bugs and
flowers as portrayed in zoology and
- In the junior year we came to the

members got iirea ci uis manner ex -speech
and left the rest cf the class
to finish the trial.
The science course which included
physics was taken by the hoys: the
girls being a little timid in mathe mathematics,
matics, mathematics, had the misfortune to rriss its

gave us our inspiration for the divis

ion of our class into three parts, in

order that we might acquire all in information
formation information as a class, since individual

ly that was impossible. Some of ua
branched into the phsycologic:
course; others held true to the clas- (

sical, and the rest to domestic art

and science.

Senior year also found us in the

new high school building, and when
the workman left we found a castle in

his place. Professor Cass els soon won

our friendship andwe prospered this

year as we had in the preceding ones.

Professor Cassels once said that

our characters were told by the writ- -ings
on our books, so I at pro proceeded
ceeded proceeded to borrow those of my classmates.

Ruby Cappleman, better known as
Cap," wa3 the first victim. On the

first page wa3 drawn a little farm
house. So poor Ruby must have
been "homesick, for she is the only fair

country maiden of the class.
The next book that fell into my
hands was Susies, but sad to he told,
Susie has no character for there were
no scratches to be found.
The next I am a littls afraid to re-
port on, but since I have already
started I shall take the risk. Alfred
MacKay's book was like a miniature
art gallery. The pictures which came
more frequent than the rest vrore lit little
tle little hearts and Cupids; to the poor
child must be in love. The girl v. ho
has eantured our Alfred has "vron a


youth as sweet and stirun as

fudge spoon and one who ha 3 a dainty
pink complexion like a picture cn a
Christmas calendar.
The next was Olivia TofTaleti's, but

to my surprise on the first page I saw

a picture of a grave with this in inscription
scription inscription on it: "Here lies the body of

my dear cat Tabby, died July

4 th,

1905." Now, this has solve i
mystery of Olivia's solemnity fo

last ten years.
. In Nan's book I found a!l kir. Is of
advertisements such as face creams,
beautifiers and electric curlers. These
indicate that she aspires to la a so society
ciety society belle.
Welch Dewey's book, looked lihe aCQ
baseball game, but instead of the
names of the heroes of baseball, his
own name was scribbled on every
page. He can tell you with ease

every baseball player in the country
and give the standing of the clubs for

the-last ten years. Why his name

should be written all over his book I

cannot explain; but in order that the

truthfulness of history rr.ay le pre

served and that naval hcnor.3 rr.ay not

be ruthlessly snatched from a most
worthy and deserving hero, it is emi

nently proper that I should state here
that Welch is not the Dewey who

gave the command, "Fire when you
get ready Gridley," and who sank the

Spanish ships in the Manila harbor.
In Vivienne Eycleshimer's book I

was amazed to see the alphabet writ

ten on every fly leaf. !V.r Vivienne's
name is not only bird to pronounce
but also to spell. So she had these
letters written here only to have ref reference
erence reference to in spelling her name in the
English language, and if ycu, the au audience,
dience, audience, should forget the name, it
may be recalled to memory by jumbl jumbling

pictures of the great actors and play players
ers players of the world- Poor Jchn missed
his calling when he did not go on the
stage for he can hand you cut a yard
of Shakspere with all the aid3 cf a
matinee hero.
The next book I laid my eager
hands on was Margaret's; tut ah!
what I found on it was like the Ocala
Northern's time table, to be read but
not followed.
In it was written her daily sched schedule
ule schedule of study which read as follows:
Domestic science, one hour and a
half; English, two hours and a half;
Latin, between four and five hours,
and French, all odd times from two
in the morning until daybreak.
The last book was Dorothy Schrei Schrei-ber's

every available space, and the one

course, no further explanation of her
is needed.

be enrolled with the great.
These character sketches have re revealed

Tou can plainly see that the class
of 1915 has in its roll names which

there is anything in a Aame.
Eycleshimer, Toffaleti and Mac Mac-Kay
Kay Mac-Kay Germany, Italy and Scotland.
Think of such a mixture in thi3 time
of turmoil and strife! Germany boil boiling
ing boiling with rage at Italy's withdrawal
from the Triple Alliarice, and her
hatred for England and everything
pertaining thereto, even to the land
of Robby Burns. Italy flaunting the
red cap in the face of Austria. Scot Scotland
land Scotland armed to the teeth and marching
to the airs of the bagpipe to anni annihilate

You can picture Alfred, the doughty
Scot, in kilts and highland bonnet,
with blood in his eye, at the name of
Eycleshimer while he hands an olive
branch to Olivia Toffaleti with the
plea, "Now be good, will you?" It is
well the neutrals with such influential
names as Jackson and Dewey predom predominate,
inate, predominate, and the dove of peace has been

lured to perch upon the school room

door. v

If it may be said that the school we
leave is better than the school we
found and that we have helped to

make it so. we are content. For our

part we know that "Auld acquain

tance shall ne'er be forgot and days

of auld lang syne."



Oft' have I sat and wondered, dur

ing a dull recitation, what would be

the fate of the individual members of
the class of 1915. Would Dorothy, so

domestic, ever become a gay butter

fly? Would Alfred ever do anything
voluntarilv. or Sam become a staid

business man ?

After the class disbanded my mind

was so filled with plans for using the
knowledge gained in the Ocala High

School, that thoughts of the future of

my classmates were temporarily dis dismissed.

that I had a "good nose for other

become a prize fighter. He told her

that he had never thought of it as a
profession until one of the junior
girls of the O. H. S. had hit him over
the head with her sewing bag in
which reposed a pair of scissors with

very shaip points. This had aroused
his fighting spirit and it had never
been quelled.

The next scene was entirely differ

ent. Before a magnificent palace in

Bombay there stood a young man, at attended
tended attended by a number of turbaned
servants. As he turned to speak to

Welsh Dewey. From their conversa

tion I learned that he was American
consul to Bombay. I was not very
much surprised, for Welsh has shown
his ability as a diplomat in 1914,

when he went before the Marion

county school board, and by his won wonderful

Christmas holiday for the schools of

was heard, which made me think of a
fleck of magpies. Gradually the form
of a young lady 'seated on the plat platform

She was talking on any and every everything
thing everything woman's rights, fashions, tar tariff,

thought she was demented and was
turning away in disgust at the owner
of the circus, when a sign suspended
from the platform attracted my eye.

It read: "Olivia Toffaleti, the Only
Chatterbox in the World." I could
not -account for this change in Olivia
until I remembered that, in her last
year at school she had taken expres expression
sion expression from Miss Hill. Then all was
plain; when she was once wound up
she could not be stopped.
The next scene to present itself
was the grounds of a quiet but elegant
home in New Jersey. A little boy of

his governess. He seemed very much

to trip "on the light fantastic toe,

but I advise that Claudia make as

much progress as possible during the

first part of the term, for after strict

rule's and regulations have been made

concerning the library it is very difS

cult to conduct a successful class. To
Inez Sandifer I will my perfectly love lovely
ly lovely disposition, which "has stood the
test, having been thoroughly tried by

the senior boys and my cooking
class neighbors who continually
passed to me the pans which the

housekeepers cave them to wash. To

Marion Long I bequeath my lamp

containing some precious midnight
oil which I have used many a night to

help Aenea3 on his, way to visit An-

chises in the Lower World.

I. John Welsh Dewey, do vr".! to

Agnes Burford my position on the
program committee cf the Agatheri Agatheri-dan
dan Agatheri-dan Society. I hope this position will
not be considered a hardship, and I as assure
sure assure Agnes that the many bribes and
presents which the freshmen and many

others will give to remain off the pro program
gram program will compensate any trouble con connected
nected connected with it. I do bequeath to Marie
Burnett my much-used Virgil, for

which many juniors have offered me
fabulous prices. Only a glance inside
is necessary to reveal the great vajue
of this legacy. I bequeath to Miss
Groman, as a peace offering, my well
known leopard spot tie.
I, Olivia Primrose Toffaleti, do be bequeath
queath bequeath to Edward Connor my vocifer vociferous
ous vociferous voice so that he may be easily
heard when he. is on the program.
To Martha Kate Rentz I do will my

method of studying, which is espe especially
cially especially effective for history. I fill a
rocking chair with cushions, sit down

with my book on my lap, and slowly

read over the entire lesson, averaging
about three yawn3 between each

topic. Then I close my eyes, lean

back in the chair, and begin to recite

in my mind what I have just read.
Suddenly as if by magic I am trans transported
ported transported to the realm of dreams, and
the lesson is so clearly pictured in my

mind that unless the book suddenly
slips from my lap, awakening me
with such a shock that the dream is
entirely forgotten, I can .recite the

next day with such vividness that the
rest cf the class is so amazed that

"their hair stands on end and their

voices cling to the roofs of their

mouths." If Martha Kate will use
this method, she is assured of the

first place in her class.

I, Nan Geneva Brooks, do will to

Sidney Harold and Katie Mae Eagle-

ton, as joint heirs, the latest edition

of "Hair Dressing Stylss for Sen

iors." To Sidney also I bequeath my

sewing table where she may talk to
her heart's content and occasionally

enjoy little tea parties without the

east interference from Miss Groman.

Along with this bequest goes the pro

cess by which work may easily be re

sumed if Miss Groman should look up,

or if Mr. Cassels should suddenly ap

pear in the door.

I, John Berian Batts, do bequeath

to James Hill my vast store house of

knowledge which indeed anyone would

be proud to own, and along with this,
my righteous ccr.ccit. To Dorothy

Long and Lillian Tomason I leave the
problem of finding a remedy for

spring fever," since all my efforts

have been fruitless. I assure them

that they will be bountifully reward rewarded

Now, dear schoolmates we, the

simple gifts, but we shall forever

keep to ourselves the tender love and

respect for our dear teachers, and

the world will come if we observe
carefully the tendency of the ages.

them; but remember, whether you

5th. The teachers in public

Memory has justly been called the
Bister of hope, for a3 hope binds the
present to the future, the golden chain
of memory links the present to the
past. Memory is one of our greatest
constructive agents. For tne sake of
memory there has been erected on the
desert plains of Egypt a Westminster
sAbbey which rivals, in the -wonder of
its architecture, England's famous
structure. Here the ancient pyra pyramids
mids pyramids rear their lofty heights, standing
not only as a memorial to the Egyp Egyptian
tian Egyptian kings, for which purpose they
were erected, but also as an undying
reminder of the architectural genius
of the Egyptian race. Memory has
laid to rest under roofs of rare beauty
and magnificence the great sovereigns
of the earth; by the crude mounds of
the most barbarious, the beautiful
tombs, shafts, and memorial halls of
the most highly civilized, it has filled
the world with imperishable monu monuments

deeds and pure noble lives. With "Im "Im-memoriams"

more fully appreciated and more high highly

It is memory that cherishes in our
hearts the pleasant events of our lives
and brings to old age its loved rem reminiscences
iniscences reminiscences of youth. It is memory
that links us with loved ones far away,
and calls up dear faces and familiar
voices. It is memory that brings in
times of sadness and discouragement
a message of cheer and hope.
It is with mingled feelings of joy
' and sorrow that we, the graduating
class of nineteen fifteen, assemble for
the last time, and realize that in a
few short hours our class will exist
only in memory. Memory will not
desert us though, and we have only
to draw forth our little golden chain
when we wish to live again the scenes
of our school life.

Dear classmates, we too have come
to the parting of ways. It is not easy
to say good-bye. Twelve years ago
we set sail in search of knowledge.
Our seas have not always been calm.
At times our boats were roughly toss tossed

we "have entered a calm harbor, and

we must each seek his or her indi individual

life which lies beyond each of us. We

the germ of altruism, but nnlike oth other
er other nations, she has cultivated it and
tried to emulate the example of the
"Good Samaritan." She well deserves
the title of "Angle of Mercy," for in
nearly all cases out of her boundless
wealth and sympathy, she has given

quakes, earthquakes, floods, crop failures and va various

of Martinique, Jamaica and Italy,
American ships were the very first
to land with aid.
Many disasters- have befallen the
people of our own country. In 1871
there occurred in Chicago the great
fire which practically swept away the
entire business section besides de destroying
stroying destroying "many residences. In 1900
a mighty flood swept over Galveston
destroying about $1S,000,000 worth of
property and over 0,000 lives. The
floods of the Mississippi and the Ohio
rivers have occurred almost annually
and kept the people in a constant
state of peril.' In each case much
sympathy was shown by people all
over the country, and money, supplies
and other aid were immediately dis dispatched

190C the people of San Francisco were
left homeless and destitute on account
of the mighty earthquake and des destructive

news quickly spread throughout the
country and touched the hearts of all
and aroused a sympathetic response.
Soon there poured into the stricken
districts contributions of provisions
to relieve the suffering and money to
replace the masses of ruins with mag mag-nificant

America has always avoided war
when possible, not because she is
afraid to fight or because she might
lose property by so doing, but to save
humanity from suffering. She has al always
ways always been a leader in the effort to
have courts of arbitration settle the
disputes of nations and make the hor horrors

past. In many questions she has been
known to yild more than her part to
the disputing party in order to carry

for instance, the treaty of Washington.

Other nations have rarely ever been

on the policy "To the victor belongs
the spoils," and the spoils were what whatever
ever whatever of the territory and wealth of the
vanquished the victor desired. Many
of their wars have been for conquest,

have been exacting and Xmfeeling.
This is not so with the United States.

United States in these matters with
that of Germany toward France, at

America's policy would have been to
show mercy and arrange a treaty that
would leave the "least possible cause
for ill-feeling, but Germany with the
attitude of a Conqueror, tyrant and
oppressor, imposed an indemnity- of
America does not desire that any

conditions were almost unbearable;
that people were on the verge of star starvation;

could not eat these conferences, so
preparations were made immediately
for the fitting out of ships loaded with
provisions, medicine and clothing for
their relief. Besides helping the starv
ing classes, America has sent many
nurses to care for the sick, wounded
and dying. The European hospitals
are filled with these "Angels of Mer Mercy,"
cy," Mercy," who have volunteered to render
their service, sometimes at the risk of
their lives. Lord Bryce has said,
"America has shown wonderful zeal
in her efforts to relieve distress. and
suffering in Belgium and indeed in
every region desolated by the war.
The liberality shown by the people o
America in their charitable efforts are
Indeed beyond praise."
America has no desire for war, no
cravings for conquest, no disposition
to act the part of a National Bully
in the world. She is laborious and
untiring in her efforts to keep the
course of government along lines of
truth, honor, honesty, helpfulness and
good will to humanity at large.
How could we better express the
American Spirit and feeling than by
using the words of our beloved Presi President

him by the city of New York when he
was there on the 18th of this month
to review the Atlantic Fleet? After
speaking of the great battleships as

wish to stand for and are speaking
for those things which all humanity
must desire."

It is with the greatest sorrow that
I speak, on behalf of the senior class,
of our parting. In the past school
years we have shared our troubles,
our misfortunes and our pleasures
with you. In time to come, regard regardless
less regardless of where we are, or what we are
doing1, there will always remain with
us the remembrance of the happy
days which we have spent together.
Each year more and more of you will
follow in our wake, and, like us will
be plunged into the wild vortex cf
life's battle. Yet the world is r.:-t so
big that we shall entirely lose tight
of each other. May the fates be kind
to us and canse us to meet many
times during all the vast changes of
A great wave of sadnes3 sweeps
over us when we hear the familiar
sound of the gong and we think that
soon we shall no longer answer its
summons, but will have to stand back
and watch you, dear fellow students,
filling our places. There will come a
time in the lives of each and every
one of us when we shall dream of the
dear old school days and wish that
we had them all to live over again.
We sincerely regret to leave this
beautiful building before we have
had time to become thoroughfy at attached
tached attached to it. We shall always feel
the greatest appreciation toward the
teachers for their kindnesS and pa patience,
tience, patience, both in instructing u?, and in
the trouble which we have caused
This i3 the last time that we shall
all meet as members of the Agather Agather-idan
idan Agather-idan Society, and is a fitting oppor opportunity
tunity opportunity to bid you farewell.
"Let fate do her worst, there are
relics of joy.
Bright dreams of the past, which she
cannot destroy.
Which come in the night time of sor sorrow
row sorrow and care.
Long, long be our hearts with such
memories fill'd!
Like the vase in which rose3 have
once been distill'd; ..
You ciay break, your may ruin the
vase if you will.
But the scent of the roses will hang
round it ctill."
In most farewells we are sad, but
a farewell to the. seniors brings joy
as well as sadnes3. We would like to
have you remain with us but we are
glad that some cf our fellow students
have reached the one-mile post on
the road to success. While we are
glad for your Fake, we also have sel selfish
fish selfish thoughts. Think of the honors
that will be ours, when you seniors
are gone. We will be seniors then;
one of us will be president of the
senior class and a few of U3 will be
officers of this society. We will he
granted privilege of giving advice to
our junior classmates and the benefit
of certain special rulings in the Aga Aga-theridan
theridan Aga-theridan Society. These are wonder wonderful
ful wonderful things to think of, but even, all
these great honors will not make up
for the loss of you. We will miss
you a great deal. It make 3 our
hearts sick to thing of coming in at
the back door without seeing Ruby's
everlasting smile of welcome or
Susie's radiant blush. And how do
you think we would feel if in the
opening song of the day we could not
hear Welsh's variations coming from
his secluded corner, and I am rare
that the teachers would feel that
something were wrong, if, at the
close of the day, they -did not rpend
an hour or two with Sam and Alfred.
And so it will be with you alL Each
one has a place that will be vacant
and we will miss every one of you.
But this makes no difference, you will
go, so we bid you farewell.

The following letter, says Hallway
tnd Locomotive K:ijrfnc-ering. was re received
ceived received by tLe claim agent of one of the
Lig western railways some time ago:
"For some weeks last my dog has
len in the habit of sicking himself
onto the cars as they sied past my
place, and Le never harmed no one by
so doing, nor never would, as I have
known him from a child, very peace peaceful
ful peaceful and fond of young children, and
awful fond of the Lutchers shop, be before
fore before where he would sit up on his hind
legs and beg with a" voice of joy for
anything he requested. When he
would run at the cars he would act
savage, but still would nlver injure
the train by word or deed if you had
a hundred trains whizzing past by day
or nite.
-But what does the fireman on the
Stick in the Mud Express do but en entices
tices entices my dog to close quarters and
throw chunks of coal and squirts hot
water upon him. which he tells me in
a blith and frivolous tone is to take
the bark oT my dog.
That is whut makes me halt your
railroad, and that is not all by a long
choke, for yesttrday they misled my
dog and pot him in front of the en engine,
gine, engine, when they pulled her wide open
and smashed my dog in a way that
hurts your rode, and causes it to be
looked at askance by every thinking
tax payer and mother.
"I say fy on such a rode as yours,
with its sanwiches that have a thin
rim of ham round the aige. so when
you lock ytur teeth with It you get
left, and the rode has got -your money
in Dennis. Fy on the whole thing is
what I say."
