This department wishes to give notice
to Prof. Bruner that a now bug has made
its appearance in the city. It is the con
necting link "between the gold-bug and
the silver-bug. It is commonly called the
"snapper beetle" because of its groat
fondness for snaps. The thing may be
found in great numbers about the capitol ;
the janitor reports their crawling to have
loosened the tiling in the corridors.
Hut the long-cared tribe the book thieves
Are forever on the spot.
Prof. Johnson, the speed that you whip us along lit
Would weary the supplest of sprinters;
Even thoso who have shown that in Virgil they 're
The bi.ness, like Grifleth or Wise or MissStratton
But mind, if my dunks are all counted
I'll bring from his stable Old Barebonos and fatten
And groom him and th' rest of the year I'll go
The Senior class, it seems, has the au
dacitv to demand a sav in the choice of a
Class Day orator. There is no effrontry
a senior will shrink from. If I wero the
Chancellor I would teach the children to
know their place.
I'd okoosu the garb that they should woar,
I'd toaoh thorn, how to part their hair
And have their pictures taken.
Their orator should be )v. Chirk
Or "mo" and I would have them mark,
My rules should be unshaken.
In the dim future, when the paternal
scales have fallen from our eyes, and the
paternal shackles fallen from our wrists
and we have the free and untrammolod
choice between going to chapel or study
ing in the library, we will sing the praises
of Burleigh and Philbrick.
There'll be more joy in service then,
Because avo'11 feel more liko free men
And less liko driven cattle.
Prof Wolfe will vonture from his don
And Fryo will come to chapel when
They hoar the old bell rattle.
The hat thiovos are with sometimes.
And sometimes they are not;
They saj that Tote is coming back,
Is coming o'er the waters;
I notice too that he will pack
OH' one of Berlin's daughters.
We hail you, Pete, with thrills of joy
For j'our scholastic fat,
But still somi' sad regrets must oloy
For our own girls, dear Pete.
