Brilliant Victory for French Arms is Received
With Great Elation

Paris, May 23. The greater part
of Fort Douaumont has been recap recaptured

taken by the Germans at the begin beginning

months ago, and the Germans at the
time heralded the feat as a great ac accomplishment

victory over the enemy. An an announcement
nouncement announcement of the retaking of the
fort has been made and there is great
rejoicing by the French press and
public; It is expected that the effect
on neutral opinion will be great also.
The new victory of the French arms
is believed to have shaken the entire
German line at Verdun, and to have,
nullified the greatest of the German
achievements in this sector.'
General Neville, in command of the
French, took advantage of the enemy
attacks on Dead Man's hill, carefully
prepared his position, and his troops
advanced against the Douaumont lines
singing the Marseillaise, using the
bayonet in most effective fashion.
Following the general failure of the
crown prince's army, the enormous
losses sustained and the prolongation
of what expected to be a drive that
would in a few days end victoriously,
the effect of the new set back on the
German people will probably be ser

official statement today, however,

It is also a significant fact that the

School Life of the Class of 1916 Told
by Miss Cluadia O'Neal at the
Closing Exercises of the
Ocala High School
On a bright and beautiful day in
the fall of the year 1903 a band of tiny
pilgrims assembled at the foot of a
steep hill, so high and so steep that
It would take them twelve long years
to climb It. There were many paths
leading to the summit; but these little
people, eager for the start, trusted
their good leader to choose the best
Little did these small travelers dream
that only three of the original climbers
would reach the summit of the hill at
the end of the twelfth year. But many
new pilgrims, from time to time
came in by bypaths and partially fil
ed the depleted ranks.
When it was time to start and the
strong leader, Miss Nellie Stephens
ha'd called the roll the little band
started out bravely; among the mos
eager of the little company were Ava

and a quaint manner of shaking' her

face. Great honor is due these three
perservering pilgrims because though
the hill -was often steep and the path
was hard to follow, they never falter
ed or looked back. So good progress
was made during the first stage of the
When the days grew hot the leader
thought it wise to rest in the shade o
the trees before beginning the next
stretch. There under the leadership
of Miss Margaret Taylor they forged
ahead, covering more territory and
gaining strength and power for then
long stretch yet to come.
These sturdy travelers were sorry
that all their faithful guides could
not continue with them until the end
but these same guides realizing that
they were familiar with the rough
places traversed. In this part of the
journey went back each time to help
the next band which, should come
along. And so they were forced to
change leaders many times, always,
however, welcoming each new one
with an enthusiasm which grew Into
love as the days passed by.
The third leader was Miss Fannie
Clark and the procession moved on
as before. And yet not quite as before
for a new member had joined the hapr
py band. A little girl, hitherto guid
ed by her mother, who forges ahead
by the side of Ava Lee." She is none
other than Marie Burnett.
Again the band of pilgrims toiled
on, overtaken, however, by four more
workers; Babel Akins, strong of body
and contented of mind, Inez "Sandifer,

Now the path divided into several
smaller ones leading through the fields
of English history, Latin, Mathemat Mathematics,
ics, Mathematics, and Science. And as the shoulder
of the mountain had been reached the
band needed more than one guide,
and so under the general supervision
of Mr. Workman with Miss Mays, Miss
Bartlett, and Mr. Milne as assistants
we were led on and day after day we
met and overcome all obstacles. We
were overtaken on this stretch by
the twins of our band, Annie Moor Moor-head

pilgrims who always rejoiced in mis mischief.

short rest but oh, how glad when Mr.
Workman called us together and, in introducing
troducing introducing us to our future guides,
Miss Abernathy, Miss Scott, and Miss
Dean, started us on our way. Joyfully
we toiled over the rough places of
this stretch encouraged by our faith faithful
ful faithful guides. Here we were joined by
Arthur Crago whom we soon learned
to love and who rejoiced in wandering
through the fields of mathematics.
Just before we started on our third
year, we were dismayed to hear that
Mr. Workman would not travel with
us any longer, but nevertheless, we
welcomed Mr. Cassels, and during the
first two years he has now our ever
lasting admiration and love by his
gentleness and strength. Two more
pilgrims now joined our ranks, Lillian
Thomason and James Hill.
While we were resting from the
summer's heat gathering strength, for
the last of our long Journey, Charles
Duval, was toiling up the steep paths

So we began the last stretch of our

Mrs. Geiger and Miss Godbey stepped

and during the last, four months has

of 1916 has ended. Our last meeting

Roger de Coverly. A gipsy tent, or a

ten in flaring capitals, "Madame

from me; and if I have the -necessary
dollar, it is not long before I am
inside, listening with the greatest
credulity to whatever the smooth smoothtongued
tongued smoothtongued temptress has to tell me of
untold riches, a dark young man and
a fair rival. It is no wonder, there therefore,

I thonght the matter over careful

wandering around on a lonely road at
midnight; but the little phrase, "in "interesting

future," proved too much for me. So
Friday night at eleven o'clock, I slip slipped
ped slipped quietly out of the house and hur hurried
ried hurried to the appointed place. To my
surprise and somewhat to my alarm
at first, I saw that I was not the only
person there. But my fear was re re-r;emoved

vere my classmates. Each one had
received a note similiar to mine and
all were eager to hear that which
was to be revealed. Only one mem member
ber member of the class was absent. This
was Ruby Fausett I beg pardon,
Mrs. Costello. She did not need to
come for her future is already r de determined.
Eleven-thirty came and nothing had
happened. We looked at each other
rather foolishly and were wishing we
had stayed at home, when Charles
cried, "Look; yonder!" and pointed to
the moon. Sliding down a moonbean
was a runabout of pale gold. Direct Directly
ly Directly toward us it glided without dis disturbing
turbing disturbing the profound silence which
biooded over the world at that hour,
and as it drew near we saw that it
had one occupant and that there was
just room for two. After what seem
ed ages it stopped in our midst and
its driver hopped out. Such a dain dainty,
ty, dainty, queer, little creature,- dressed in
soft satin, of the palest gold with
sparkling gauze draperies. Her gold golden
en golden hair was held back by a tiny band
and fell in soft ripples over her
shoulders. No ; one spoke for a min minute
ute minute and then in a low, musical voice,
the fairy began:
"I am Numa, one of the millions
of spirits of the moonbeams," she
said, and tonight I have become visi visible
ble visible in order to bring a message to
you from the Man. in the Moon. He
intended to send for a large float
which would hold you all, but today
it was broken so that it can never
be repaired. But my master bade
me bring one' of you to him. That
one shall be appointed by lot and to
that person he will disclose the
knowledge intended for all. The boy
or girl to whom the lot falls will be
bound by word of honor to repeat
faithfully to you what he or she shall
There was silence for a minute and
then, as young people will we began
clamoring to go with her and asking
all sorts of .unanswerable questions.
The sprite raised her hand and mo motioned
tioned motioned for silence. "You. forget you
must draw lots," she reminded, pro
ducing a bundle of sticks. "Each of
ycu, blindfolded, must draw one of
these sticks 'and the one who selects
the shortest will be the one to go.
I am sorry it is so, but we have done
everything in our power to prevent
disappointing you. Now choose, for

Well, to make t. long story short,
the lot fety to me. I promised faith
fully to tell my friends what I heard

ing advantage of this occasion to ful
fill my' promise.
As soon as I was seated in the car,
all the world disappeared and I was
floating through the air so fast that
I should have beenN afraid but in five
minutes I was fast' asleep. When I
was awakened by a light touch of
Numa's hand, I was in a land where
it is always day, but the light is
not: glaring or blinding as it is here.
It is soft and shaded so that your
eyes never, grow tired. The land is
very much like' our world, but there
is a witchery, a spirit of romance,
over it all that is entirely lacking on
the earth. "I am sorry I cannot al
low you -to explore our beautiful
country," she said, "but we have a
law that mortals cannot remain here
for more than two hours. We must
make haste. However, you may see a
little as we go to the palace. Come."
The street which led to the palace
wound in and out between hills and
valleys filled with trees and exquisite
flowers. Here and there, I caught
glimpses of mansions surrounded by
gardens. Fairy-like creatures played
among the groves and everywhere
the utmost harmony prevailed. All
too soon we came to a crystal palace
which sparkled and gleamed in the
subdued light in a most facinating
manner. A little awe-inspired by the
magnificence before me, I began to
wish myself safe at home. But my
guide never faltered. Straight
through the wonderful halls she led
me, not even pausing a moment to
allow me to examine a few of the
interesting curiosities which were
scattered throughout the building.
Then at last we entered a small
room filled with ledgers some an ancient,
cient, ancient, some more modern. But more
interesting thaa all these was the
only occupant of the room, a little old
man with long white hair and beard
and the friendliest eyes. His face
fairly beamed with good nature and
his cheery voice put me at ease in a
moment. And yet, when the first
greetings were over, there was a sad
ness in his face which touched me to
the heart, for I knew that the man
in the moon, in spite of his riches and
power, was not happy simply because
he was separated from his own kind
of creatures. I did not have long to
think of this, however, for he im
mediately entered upon the business
"My child," he said, "perhaps you
are thinking that I have brought
you here on a sort of wild goose
chase. But please don't think so. Do
you see that large book in the corner?
Its pages fortell the future of High
School pupils, and each year it
pleases me to bring a class to see it.
This year I decided upon your class,
so now if you wish, you may learn
whate fate has destined for you."
The book to which he" pointed was
the largest I have ever seen four
by two feet. It stood on end so all I
had to do was open it. When I turn turned
ed turned the flyleaf,' these words met my
eyes, "Ulass 01 iyit, u. n. as
they will appear in 1925." My fingers
trembled with eagerness as I turned
the page and beheld a busy scene. It
was the operating room of a large
hospital in the city of Burbank and
a surgeon was performing a delicate
operation with skilled fingers. At
first I could not see her face as she
bent over her patient, but when she
raised her head with a look of tri
umph on her face, I recognized in the
world famous physician, our class
president, Sidney Harold.
The next scene was a far different
one a dainty room whose walls
were lined with books 1 and whose
windows were, filled with flowers.
Cats tumbled over cats and a parrot
was chattering wildly in its cage. On
the desk was a set of ungraded ex examination
amination examination papers. In short the whole
room proclaimed that its occupant
was a "bachelor maid" school teach
er. I was wondering which of us this
fate was awaiting twhen the door
opened and in walked Inez Sandifier.
"Why Inez, what in the world," I be
gan, but the scene changed to a
Isrge theater. The curtain was ris rising
ing rising on the opening act of a famous
ministrel. I scanned the faces of the
men. Not one was familiar to mee.
Then the black-faced comedian, Billy
Fuss was introduced. Most of his
fun was made by putting chalk down
people's backs and throwing erasers
around, so I knew at once that this
was none other than Arthur Crago,
for that was his favorite sport in
As soon as I recognized him the

picture vanished and another took its
place. This time a grove of palm
trees appeared crowded with native
Africans. A missionary was preach preaching
ing preaching earnestly to those people with a
voice of passionate and melodramatic
appeal. There was something very
familiar about this voice and it did
not take me long to realize that it
was Katie May Eagleton for I re
membered how her loud talking dis
tressed us in class when we would
beg her to be quiet so that the rest
of us might be heard.
The next scene showed the interior
of a convent and our sober, studious
and sedate comrade, Louise Sanders,
who had decided to become a nun as
she wished to spend the rest of her
life in quiet meditation and this was
the only way of escape from the so
cial engagements which wearied her
so during school life.
The scene which followed showed
that another of the class of '1916 had
taken the veil, but Lillian Thomason
preferred the wedding veil with
orange blossoms and lilies of the val
ley, and being Lillian, she could not
forget the touch of green.
Then a new spectacle presented it
self. This time, a circus ring. A
bareback rider was performing and 1
soon recognized in the sylph-like
furm and graceful movements of the
ciever horse woman, our small and
dainty classmate, Mable Akins.
Next I saw a pitiful sight. A timid
looking man was coming home from
work) on Saturday night. His wife
met him in the hall. "Hello," he be began,
gan, began, but could get no further.
''You're tracking dust on my carpet!"
she shrieked, "Go right back and clean
your shoes. But first you can hand
over your pay envelope. Why, you've
spend some of it. Two whole dollars!
What did you do with it? Bought
me some candy? I don't believe it!
Well, if you did, you must have been
up to something I don't like. I tell
you, Westlake, I'm tired of the way
you treat me." "I'm tired too," he
murmured. Poor Westlake
This sad display of domestic trouble
soon disappeared and a suffrage
meeting took its place. A leading
suffragist was beginning her speech.
"My sisters," she said,, "I wish this
evening, to outline briefly my plans
for an ideal community, a place where
you, my poor, downtrodden country
women, may' enjoy to the full your
rightful privileges; and above all, a
place where there are no men in
short a, modern Utopia." I needed
no more. This could be none other
than Martha Kate Rentz, whose an
tipathy for the. opposite sex is well
known among us.
The next scene revealed the fact
that another fellow-classman will dis distinguish
tinguish distinguish himself as a speaker. James
Hill was shown as a member of the
House of Representatives, and by his
long drawn out oratory delaying the
passage of bills to which he was bp-
posed. James is. well fitted for this
vork as I know, having spent a term
in senior mathematics with him.
Many a time he has prevented the
rest of us from exposing our igno
rance by taking a whole period to re recite
cite recite his proposition.'

Alfred Green has enough ability for

nothing, and remembering impor important
tant important (?) details. He has had a great
deal of training this year in the re
markable debate given at every avail available
able available opportunity, "Resolved, that wa water
ter water is wet."
When the scene changed, I saw
Claudia O'Neal teaching a private
school for girls in a large city. It
was during recess and a group of her
older students were gathered about
her. I thought I knew her at once,
but when she said, "Oh, my dears,
when you have had my experience
with the world and know men like I
do I was sure, for she is the most
sophisticated girl in the class.
A tent was shown then in which a
play was being given: All of the
parts were taken by men and I notic noticed
ed noticed a dainty, effeminate, young girl
and I could hardly believe that the
part was taken by a man. Before
the show had progressed far, some something
thing something funny happened and the actor
laughed. Then I knew that he was
Charles Duval for only he could giggle
in that queer nervous fashion.
A studio In York, Fla., appeared
next. Its owner was seated at a desk
busily planning school entertainments
and costumes. When she raised her
head and said to one of her friends,
I got my first experience when I
was a senior in planning affairs for
my class. You see, the. rest were such
blockheads along that' line." I know
that this was Annie Moorhead.
Again the scene changed. A lux
urious outmobile stopped in front of
a shabby tenement and a tall, richly
dressed lady carrying a market bas basket
ket basket on each arm stepped out. Several
dirty children crowded about her as
she entered the building. Evidently
she was a social worker. The family
she was visiting was in the most
straightened circumstances and their
gratitude was touching. When they
sat down to chat a few moments, the
social, worker crossed her knee and
began shaking her foot violently.
"Why, that must be Ava Lee,- I ex
When the last scene has disap
peared, the book was shut fast and
try as I might, I could not open it
again. Then I lost my temper. "You
said you would show me my future,"
I stormed. "It is not fair!" The man
in the moon looked at me sadly.
"Poor child," he said, "I was going to
tell that to you myself. But since

Here's to the purple and gold!

Here's to our flower, the white carna carnation

One bright sunshiny morning, twelve

There stood a ship named "Prep

A wiry wind began to blow, then the
sails of our ship were spread.
The silvery tongue of a bell pealed
forth, our ship was on the waves,
The Bay of Life with its trials was
before us for many days.
There were many sailor lads aboard,
and sailor lasses, too,
Indeed there was never a happier
crowd than the sailors in our
The winds were calm our first few

The sun shone ever on our ship, and
blue was all the sky.
Our colors at the top mast were fly flying

And welcomed by all the blithe sea sea-birds

There was work each day, and then
came play till setting of the sun,
When this ball of light went to rest
for the night, the day's journey
The moon shone above o'er all the
world, bright stars from the
sky would peep,
Then as our eyelids grew heavy, the
waves would lull us to sleep.
But suddenly one morning a noise
was heard outside,
A storm was raging across the Bay,
the sky with dark clouds was
The lightning flashed, the thunder
roared, mad waves rushed o'er our
No one could stand upon our ship,
so fiercely did it shake.
We toiled all day unceasingly each
sailor lass and lad,
Each minute it seemed our ship
would be in robe of destruction
lOur captain bravely paced the deck,
and tried to calm our fears,
We looked to him for comfort as we
had for many years.
Our pilot toiled through all the storm,
our ship did ne'er go 'stray
To him and to our captain we owe the
victory of the day.
Twas during the middle of the after
noon when the thunder ceased to

The clouds commenced to scatter, and
the lightning flashed no more.
