Como tako a walk up tho broad
old stairway of tho university.
Hoar how thoy croak and groan
undor our footalops. How many
million foot have tramped up and
down horo in the yoara gono by!
Somo tripping lightly, others go
ing painfully and woarly along,
AVhoro are the feet now that made
tho old stairways creak? Thoy
arc tramping ovor the world.
Somo of thorn are trending in pnl-
aces, somo walking in tho ways of
poverty and hardships and some
aro high in honor in tho world.
Somo are bound togothor in a rest
that, that will never break, out
undor tho soil. Some ore seeking
and longing for rost and find it
But wo tread lightly. We laugh
and sing, and think not of those
who aro gone. Wo pass up and
down, bent only on our own en
joy mont, and tho old stops alono
know tho story of tho past.
Tho old pino trees out on tho
campus wavo thoir arms in .the
broezo. They look sedate and
prim. If they could but tell the
secrets they know! What dainty
lovo storios they could loll. What
beautiful pictures thoy could por
tray of splendid young men
pouring into tho oars of beau
tiful young women their first
holy lovo vows! What tondor,
whisnored words, sweeter than
honey, ssveolor far than tho whis
pering of thoir own green
brandies, could they toll if thoy
only had tongues! And. too,
what groat disappointments could
thoy toll! What wild yearnings
that were uttered alone there, with
no one but the stars and the old
pines to hear! What heartbroken
wails of souls that saw their hopes
blighted and their roses turned
to ashes before thoir view! Lut
thoy toll no story to you and mo.
Thoy whisper to each other, they
bend and nod in a knowing way,
but wo know not thoir language
and can only sigh at tho hints of
storios that they give us.
To and fro, to and fro, swing
tho doors of the clear old "uni.""
From morning: until nigdit it is a
ceasoloss swing. Hither and von
tho students rush. The bells ring,
classes march in and out. The
halls are crowded, Happy greet
ings are exchanged. Bright faces
look out from the crowd that
surges to and fro, and again dark
faces look out. From all parts of
these great states are gathered to
gether this great body of students.
Some have como from happy
homes and all their wants are
supplied. They have nothing to
worry them but their lessons. No
wonder that they are light hearted
Some are working: their
through the school.
They have no one to help them,
they must fight their own battles.
Sometimes they find work and
sometimes not, thoy have the
worry of thoir studies and the
cares of life besides; is it any
wonder if they look bitter some
times and their faces are clouded V
Perhaps a young mun comes to
the university and is hungry for
an education. He is poor. He
must work his way. He enters
and studies hard. He finds work
for awhile. But after a few weeks
liis work fails.' He is compelled
to leave. In bitter anguish ho
goes home, Chinking he has made
a failure. Those who saw him go
think ho has failed. But no. Ho
has not failed. It is a success to
want to got an education. He
who has awakened to the fact that
an education is desirable, has al
ready succeeded. There aro many
slumbering souls who never
awaken to the fact that there is
any thing; but a dull round of
money making, inane society func
tions, and sinful pleasures. So.
young man, if you must Oeave tho
old "uni," do notdoapair. You have
shown your dosiro for a higher
world and yon will 11ml it somo
timo and somohow.

Apropos of tho recent football
discussions, comes a story of tho
(iraeco-Trojan football game
played before Troy on Thanksgiv
ing Day, 800 H. C. It is an amus
ing sk'it, published by Tub Nk
uitASKAX, an original and attract
ive paper published at tho Uni
versity of Nebraska. The Iliad
and modern football tactics aro
sadly mixed. Ajax is center rush
for Ci recce; Odysous quarter
back; Achilles and Agamemnon,
halves; Mcnclaus, fullback. -Kne-ah,
Hector ami Priam aro the star
players of Troy University, in
the lirst half I lector scores a touch
down by terrible end rushes, but
lueas fails to kick goal. In the
second half Palroehlus is laid out
in a scrimmage; Achilles takes the
place, doll's hi "bran new sweater,' "
and, by a series of Mine buckings,"
advances the ball to within ten
yank of the Troy goal, where he
is tackled hard by Hector. In tho
full Hector is injured anil Achilles
carried the pigskin over the lino
amid hearty applause, Odysseus
kicks an easy goul, and a few mo
ments later timo is called. Thus
ended the famous game on the
Ilium liold. Final score, G-4. The
story is effectively illustrated, and
rollccts credit on its author. 7'if

The Frost-king enmo from his homo in
And busily, wlulo I slept,
Tho mngic touch of hib ice-tipped brush
Ovor my windows ho swopt,
Tho wmith-liko scenos of his northern
In spectral linos ho wrought;
Tho aerial touch of his cunning hiiud
Outlined his subtle thought.
Tho crystal citvos where tho icy winds
In deep recesses hide,
And fenthory pines and hemlocks tall,
With hrauchos roaching wide;
And ice borgs fast in frozon sous,
And branching roindeor horns,
And quaint and whimsical olfln forms
Like griillus and unicorns;
And a castlo whito, with gleaming
And fanciful, fragile walls,
With loopholoh and ports of curious
And strange, mysterious halls.
Hut the jealous sun, whou day had
Gazing hard at tho Frost-king's work,
Erasod with a burning, flory glance
Each queer and freakish quirk;
And castlo and trees and frozon sons
All vanished I know not whore,
Like the phantom shapes of my fairest
As frail and Hooting as air.
The holiday numbers of nearly
all the exchanges have been unusu
ally attractive. Thjj Nmjjkaskan,
of Lincoln, deserves special men
tion, lib it contains very good pic
tures of two football elevens, the
editorial stall', Chancellor Caniiold,
several views of different parts of
the campus showing; a number of
fine buddings, and much good
reading matter. Argus.
