    Tlio similes of lilgl.t woi'o fulling fast,
As through tho collogo halls there passed -
A Freshman.
Fis clothes were ivet, Ills toot were damp,
As on ho rushed with a dampy clamp,
Till exhuustod Into his room liu sank,—
Tills Freshman.
In hot pursuit anothcr.camo
With bristling hair and eyes aflame, -
A Sophmoro.
In his hand ho held a can
With which ho had duelled tho little Freshman,
And to punch Ills head was now li Is plan—
Tough Sophomore,
Hut when ho reached tho Frdshman's door,
Which was fastened by two looks or more,
Ho turned away and badly swore,—
llad Sophomore.
I'll catch him yet, tho litllu sneak,
And If ho says again, “Your whiskers leak,”
I’ll bet on It no more he’ll speak,—
Hold Freshman
—Dr. A. J. Orndorf, cf Pine Grove Mills, lias
opened a branch office at State College, where he
is prepared to do all kinds of dental work in a
first-class manner.
—Weller, Linsz and W. I-I. Walker were the
fellows who would not do guard duty in front of
Headquarter's tent, while the sun was shining,

—One of our leading whist players takes pride
in being able to tell how to play from the coun
tenances of the others. In a recent game the
scheme worked adrnira bly for his opponents
The score would have been published if there had
been two sides to it.
—Lieut. Pague has recently patented a tent
gun rack. Several were used on trial at Camp
Roberts, and we doubt not, from the satisfaction
there given, that it will meet with an extensive
sale, if a convenient arrangement of things in a
tent counts for anything.
—On one occasion, in the Botany practician
during the Professor’s absence, the “Kid” trying
very hard to amuse the class, inserted a lighted
cigarette in the skeleton’s mouth. The Prof.,
on returning, promptly told him to remove the
cigarette as that perhaps was the cause of the
skeleton’s presence among us. The “Kid” does
not avail himself of this startling information as
he is continually inserting lighted cigarettes in
his own mouth
—Miss Gray induced Misses Jones, Ball, Foster
and Patterson to partake of her hospitality at her
pleasant country home, located in the charming
valley of Buffalo Run. It was very evident that
Miss Gray had highly entertained her friends,
for their countenances beamed with cheerful
smiles, and their.raw/ voices filled the “Barren”
air as on their homeward ride they sang “If you
love me, tell me so.” The “Dude,” “Aubie,”
J B , two Billies and “Slocum” were much dis
tracted in their absence, but their hearts rejoiced,
when, as they stood on the back stile, they saw
approaching in the distance these five maids from
school. Then it was that J. B, began basso pro
fundily “I'm waiting for thee,” and from the
distant hill the echo came, “I’m coming.”

The essence of true nobility is neglect of
self. Let the thought of self pass in, and the
beauty of a great action ii gone like the bloom
from a soiled flower.
