a science or a language, but for ideals and
all higher culture. Wo can ill afford to lose
one of these, for their name is by no means
legion. Wherever Dr. Lloyd may go, she
takes with her the gratitude of an institution
and of a state where she has helped not only
to fashion chemists, but to inspire and kindle
earnest young men and women to that cul
ture which society most needs.
It is customary at the end of the year for
the managing editor of the Hesperian to
thank the associate editors for their work.
Were it not customary, I would wish to do
so. Thanks are very cheap, and were my
bills at Brown's and Sutton & Hollowbush's
not so alarming, I would like to bestow upon
these particular editors a more substantial
token of my regard and thankfulness. As
it is, I can only refer them to large sums
deposited to their credit where moths do not
corrupt, neither theives break in and steal.
They have all been industrious, patient and
long suffering, and have kindly endured me
even when I found it hard to endure myself.
Mr. Fisher and Miss Bullock I wish to es
pecially thank for the genuine and vital in
terest they have taken in the paper, and for
the kindness which, in my moments of dis
couragement or indolence has often prompted
them to do my work and their own as well.
The editors all unite with mo in thanking
Mr. Hardy for the work he has done for the
paper and the great interest he has shown in
the literary as well as its financial merits.
The duties of the Hesperian business man
ager have generally consisted in getting the
paper out as seldom as possible and in debt
as often as possible. Never before in ray
recollection has any business manager taken
such lively interest in the paper's poloticB,
such pride in its form and excellence, and
done such successful work for its financial
welfare as has Mr. Hardy. I wish to thank
the Chancellor and many members of the
Faculty for the aid and encouragement they
gave us when we were laboring with the
Charter Day edition of the Hesperian. I
wish to thank Mr. Hunter and his men for '
the pationco they have had with myself and '
my associates, and for their courtsey and"
kindness toward us at all times. To our ''
subscribers, patrons and advertisers, wo v
send our sincere thanks. To our dead-heads '
and our contemporary, our very respectful
regards. To our classes, our sympathies ""
and regrets. Willa Gather.
AVE ATQUE VALE.
The breaking up of the merriest company11
is always a little gloomy. The lights never ',ux
seem to burn so brightly after the music'101
stops, the flowers look wilted, and the cold' ''
draughts of air that blow in as one by one v
the dancers go out muffled in their furs,' '
and the sound of the departing carriages are r
not encouraging to festivity. Partings are
not pleasant even, the most trival and tem- " 7'
porary. People who like each other even"''
moderately well never seperate from each'1 '
other without feeling the sense of the utter
helplessness and impotency that distance "
brings to human beings, the inability to aid',u
or to console. Human being's are a good '
deal like the plague stricken cattle of India, v'n
they can not help each other much, but they " :
prefer to die in herds. This feeling is evin-'"'
ced not only when good friends part. Even ' ':
the merest acquaintances who have worlced' "'
along with us for years and whom we have'' ;
grown used to seeing and greeting, become' y1
almost dear to us as we are about to see
them leave us. People who have bored ' us
for four long weary years, often become in,
a way bound to us by the work we have done' '
together, and particularly the work we liave""M
left undone together, and when we come to "'
leave them we wish they would stay and"
bore us four years more.
We have some very dear friends in the ""
class of '94, and alas ! somG "bitter erien
mies. But we wish "just now ' to lay ,asidS,ut
these artificial distinctions which made "ybu'-'
our friends or foes, and speak to you as v
though you were all our friends, for surely
all men may be friends when they say good-
