A senior gown hidcth a multitude of sins.
Director Ellsworth of Buildiugs and Grounds will
pasture 'ponies' and 'pigeons' in his Aristocratic
chicken-lot betwecu the front walks this summer.
I'm getting so I fear to write
A siugle word nor good nor bad
For fear 'twill place me in a plight
Although I scarcely think it should.
"WHEELMEN, TAKE NOTICE!
Our Hug-stone walks were truly laid
By generous grant of public 'plate;'
They're owned, controlled and cleared by the
Police force of our glorious slate.
SEW A COAT TO A BUTTON.
A Sunday tusk-all day they write
To patch up It. H. Mauley's play,
And all that long and weary night
Until the dawning of the day.
And when they beheld the good work they had
Their apples of silver in pictures of gold
Seemed a new play completcfull of real native fun
Ouly author and title remained of the old.
FAKBWELL, BEQUEST, WARNING.
A sadness steals upon me now,
For I must speak my last farewell,
The parting sorrow clouds my brow;
My soul-grief, pen can never tell
For my poor heart is rent in twain
To see big gems of Truth concealed,
Hence Truth, though crushed, has risen again
In fearless quill-strokes bold revealed
To me the thought is biller gall
That time has lacked to tell it all.
Again, farewell, a smile or frown
Has been my only praifo or blame,
As I have served up toasted brown
Both friend and foe with modest whame.
To my successor 1 bequeath
My trenchant quill, my gall, and pray
That he my fairest laurels wreath
And finally win I B. K.
But dear successor, wild, uncouth,
Avoid the plain, unvarnished truth.
JMUB TAILS OUT OK SCHOOL.
Those ligures ghastly and grim and white
Noisily march in the glaring light,
Ami the marshall music betokens a light
Or a terrible raid.
For lo! as they march to the wheezy old drum,
Tis clear they are out on an old-time bum
The wheels in their heads oiled by Hector's rum
That Shirt tail Parade.

Friday eveuiug was one of the best programs given
before tho society this year. Though prepared ou
short notice it was well w -it'iy of th I'alladian
girls. Tho reciting of Miss Van Vrsdall and Mrs,
McMiehael was especially good. The "Old and New
Maud Muller" by Misses Lewis and Morton proved
to be a catchy number. The musical numbers were
up to tho usual high standard of Palladiau music.
The tableaus pleased tho aesthetic Palladiau boys
better, perhaps, than other members. At least they
did if applause means anything. The laughing
statuary" and the falling of the curtains while
really impromptu proved equally inieivsiing and
amusing with tho rest of the program.
