into the management of a man who will 'permit any
influence or patronage from without or within prevent
him from advocating, the rights of the students indi

societies. Make it treason for a barbarian to aid a
frat enterprise that would destroy you if it had its
power. Contribute, more liberally, reading matter
for your paper and help swell the subscription list
next fall to five hundred. Your paper will never be
what it should be, so long as the editors- alone, who
are already overloaded with work, must grind out
every line of copy that is set up. Let there be a
making up in this matter next year and The Hespe

In ancient days, some, yeais ago.
When Xerxes was quitu young,
And in bib faint Adagio, . ' .
His favorite love songs sung;
When Alexander drank the health
Of many a Persian lass;
When Chumis on his golden throne,
Drained many a flowing "glass;
There stood upon a little-isle,
A temple quite alone.
The wisdom of its oracles,
I'ar o'er the wide world 'shone.
Whence came this little islaudt
1'eil.aps 'tis well to know,
The stories of that good old time
Say it came about just so.
There was tumble "rnong the ancient gods
Just what, no one doth know.
Itot 'tis safe to wager heavy odds -
I hey had a jolly row.
Quoth Neptune, "We must have more rtfom
'The people do demand it. ' ' "
"Ve other gods, do what ye will,
"I hereby do command it."
And then he swung his trident out
l'ar o'er the watery main.
The other gods stood round about, "
And guyed the good old man.
"1 say Old Nop. what do you mean?" '
( ''What are you doing there?" cream?"'
"Arc you skimming the waves to get some
"Are you trying to pile up the air?"
"Are you fishing for suckers up toward the

'O come Uncle Nep crawl down from the
"Come off and set up the cigars."
Hut Hoptune made a face quite wry.
And M,ji ..X,w ,i,m.t ,u looney,"
And then he winked the other eye,
And whistled "Annie Rooucy."
And still he stretihed the trident forth -n
' "as l,(ll't;ht but air and water.
NNIust! the other gods all lied -1
hey vanished like hot butter.
