do, the class stepped out under the trees in the yard while
Kcnyon took a group picture of the class. Wednesday morn
t ing the class was invited to bieakCst'l with Chancellor and
Mrs. Canficld. It was interesting to note the military
promptness with which each arrived there that morning.
Notwithstanding the fact that they had gorged themselves
for two days previous, they continued to cat for some time
aflor the busy chancellor was compelled to leave for his
office. The law students and regents weic also present and
all were delightfully entertained as well as feasted.
The Last Seniors.
Charlotte Anilrus, firt on the list, gets red headed very
easily. She has a very pleasant disposition however, and has
made many friends while in the university. Although of aris-
tocratic birth she smiles on the plebeian as well as the patri
cian. She will probably remain at home until some worthy
gentleman with another and more desirable name comes upon
" the scene.
Aver, Samuel Avery, who is often spoken of as a very
i good man, is ncrt in alphabetical order. Mr. Avery is not so
well known as many of his associates, but is well known in
the laboratories. He is a scientist and has risen rapidly in that
line of work during the past year or so. Mr. Avery's best'

tion in the military department and in athletics. lie sits on
the front row in chapel and leads in singing. He has a solid
girl in every state in the union including Kansas and the
state of Columbus, Neb. He is probably the most modest
young man in the class. He never talks except when he has
' some one to talk to. He is well known and well liked by his
' associates. He will depart soon for Indiana, where he goes
to accept a position as electrical engineer.
W. E. Hrook is a man who has made a reputation in the
university as a musician, warrior, cane thief, engineer, and is
l a member of the university triplets. Although not like
Tennyson's Habbling Urook in all particulars, yet he gives
, promise of going on' forever and is becoming famous. His
. tripod will go with him.
E. 1 Hrown was for three years a shining light in the class
of '91, but has been engaged during the past year in the
banking business and cxpicts to continue in the same calling
, after graduation, lie has a solid girl.
t Theo. Hruggcr, the jolly Schwcizcr front Nobesville, gives

Miss Minnie DePue is a young lady who has retained the
very front rank in her class at the same lime that she has dis
charged numerous and burdensome social duties. Miss De
l'ue was the successful contestant in the last Chr.se and
Wheeler contest. Her kindness, sociability and wit justly
entitle her to the distinction of being the most popular young
lady .nthe univeisity.
Mr. Dinges is another scientist of consi Icrablc notoriety.
He has acquired distinction in catching bugs and in artillery
drill. It was also said of him on class day that he was well
versed in political economy. Those who are acquainted
with him say that he is not as fierce as he looks.
Homer J. Kdmiston is the next personage with a history.
EdmistoM is known in school as the classic. He is popular
in society, in military circles and in the class room. He
will probably specialize in political economy or if disliking a
professorship will accept the picsidcncy. .
Miss Eucgnia Gctner is a young lady who has a bright
smile and pleasant word for everybody. She is one of the
few who have been able to make their four years' course in
less than the alloled time. Her ability to talk has led her
into oratory with good results. May her shade nor her smile
never grow less!

ladie. This last is strictly confidential.
Mamie Hullhorst is one of the most classical and reserved
girls of the class. She rivals Miss Gctner in stature and is
a thorough student in every particular. She will become a
Prof. F. D. Hyde. The seniors consider themselves equal
to any call upon their genius, but only one of them became a
professor before he graduated, and that one was the aforesaid
Hyde. Mr. Hyde is pretty, vain, conceited yet withal
kindly and lovable in disposition. To end up with, he is
captain of compiny D and a bi other to every other girl in
When Mr. Kcii)on was a little boy he used to wade in the
Thames. His delight was to let the clams bite his feet. A

he has patiently worked at his special line of investigation.
The clams during this period have faithfully performed thiir
duties cveiy chance they have secared during the university
course of Mr. Kcnyon they have bitten his fingers. Now he
feels that he needs a change. With his diploma under his arm
he steps oat into the broad and unsympathetic world. Hut
what will he do? It is possible that he may continue Jiis love
for clams, but it s altogether likely that he will find sonic
