    110 W ABOUT IT
Tell me not deluded student,
Ponies are an empty dream ;
If they're used with proper prudence,
Of their presence Profs. ne'er dream
Cribs are real to their possessors,
And they help to reach the goal ;
How to reach the stern professors
Bothers every student's soul.
Not enjoyment, only sorrow,
'Tends the honest student's way ;
Slyly we our lessons borrow,
Then play foottall all the day.
Greek is long, and limo is flying,
Maidens are strolling down the walk ;
Quickly then our clubs applying,
We go out and have a talk.
In the college held of learning,
In the class room's busy strife
While the rest success are earning,
We ride ponies big as life.
Trust no author for your lessons,
For the pony's much the best;
Crib—orlb your language lessons,
And stop your flunking like the rest
Former students don't deceive us,
For the ponies used of yore,
Though departed still they leave us
Footprints on the sands of lore.
Footprints which we view with gladness,
Sailing o'er the college main.
Though forlorn and filled with sadness,
Quickly we take heart again.
Thus we go alt study spurning ;
And maybe when our course is done,
We will have as much of learning
As when it was first begun.

Easter lilies tall and fair,
Shea sweet perfume on the air,
From their bell.formed throats so yellow
Bark ! I hear a music mellow. •
For their fragrance softly rings
Gentle music to the strings
Of my memory's harp; I hear
Sweet vibrations echoing near.
As that music gently swells,
Tales of long ago it tells.
Life's sweet spring time it recalls;
Fallen arc Time's barrier walls.
But the fragrance slowly wanes,
Dying are the memory strains.
Sweeter music ne'er was known
Than this music that bath flown.

Decline 11 'lhr Geliebter'
The teacher said
But the modest maiden hung her head,
And with sly glance at the teacher said,

For I've accepted my Geliebter." —Sibyl
No formal contract is required,
No attention is desired, •
No witty lawyer need be lured
To plead in equity.
If only love their hearts has stirred
And each that love Use felt or heard
They may without a single word
Commit embracery.
A little iron,
A cunning curl ;
A bot of powder, •
A pretty girl.
A little rain, •
Away it goes ; •
A homely girl
With a freckled nose.
Two maids as fair as fair can be,
Fair maids, both blonde are they,,
But both coquettes and sliallow-souled
Dressed up in style today.
They paint sometimes when color fails,
Delight in laces fine, •
Two maids, two ready.mades are they
Those russet shoes of mine."
