Last year the fighting editor wintered
in Siberia and returned by the way of
the Pi.iii Islands. This year he will
discover the south pole. Any wrath due
him will be corked up until his return.
An open letter to Billgreen: Dear Billgreen:
Where are your whiskers?
I hate to see those whiskers oil'
That undulating red.
I fear you'll get the whooping-cough
And have wheels in your head.
Turn out aud cheer the foot ball men
Each sunny autumn day
We'll swallow loane eutire anil then
Teach Denver how to play.
Why lVarse alone can vanquish Doatie
And Shedd can handle Butte.
While Iowa Plat. cats alone
Aud erys for more to boot.
Then Kansas and Missouri
1 think 1 plainly see,
They'll leave to Harry ury
And Wiggings and to me.
We have traced the winter flowers
Aud the fragrant flowers of spring.
We have studied summers Iwauties
With the pleasures fond they bring
And we've also catalogued
Most of the autumnal blossoms,
But Dr Bessey says-.
There is no known nomenclature
That adequately classitius
A perpetual blooming idiot.
Well corporal Mumford you're a brick
To put the new men through.
To drill at quick and double quick.
The prompt way that you do.
A sprightlier man I've never seen,
And all your troops are raw
Remember, use your decipline
Not "Whoa there.,' "Gee" and "Haw"
The air is tilled with martial sounds
Siuce Mumford drills a squad,
Admiring co eds throng the grounds
While Mumford drills his squad.
Ambition swells anew in me,
Siuce Mumford drills a squad;
Prof, Davis stops his wheel to see
How Mumford drills his squad.
Dear Freshman, I am after you
The good book says: "Thou shalt not steal "
I would have swiped those "Synonyms"-
J he joke on me, and so I squeal.
If wisdom's ways you wisely seek
Five things observe with care:
With whom you hash, for whom you hash
And how and when and where.
"'Tis sweet to be remembered"
By the genial registrar.
There's nothing like a "notice" thence
To tell you where you are.
We've had our share of orators
Forensic, tragic, funny
Mc'Mulleu, Weaver, Barker too
Whose sweet words flow like houey.
The "Ideal" Wing, and Hadley Q.
McNitt, Uatlield and all
Have charmed us by bewitching tkill
Through many a weary fall.
But there is yot a grander sway
Of which we never tire
It is the flowing eloquence
Of Otto W Meir.
The tides of war come on apace
The fates can never stay them
'I he Bryanites have placed the chip
McKinleyhes must slay them
Here's health to Watson's golden jaw
And Alh-n's quenchless smii
The Killen Law schools' champion Mull",
Maguirc's silvery wile.
IN THE MBKAKV.
She sat down in the library ;
She studied hard.
She read so very fast so very:
She bent her head.
She was a girl who belonged to a "frat":
She saw a man;
.She didn't care a straw for that,,
She read again.
She looked up from her work once more!
She saw him come.
She saw him wait there near the doon
She knewhiin then.
She slats her book shut as quick as she can
"(Jo to, book lore!"
She sits for an hour on a bench with the man
She studies no more.
