Who that I ftin, ami what I am, unci who
Are all these forms about mo, 1 know not;
Nor can know. Aud thatwliich I have done.
And strive to do, no man, it seems, can know
And God eternal, only, understands.
I am 80 weak, so helpless, and so frail;
Tliou God who hearest all thy children's cries,
Let shine for me'oue star in all the vast
Willi night through which I wander. Deign to
Some path, however humble, that, assured,
There 1 may follow ami thy will be done.

This day hath given answer to the face
Of all the gory-handed years who wait
With eyes turned neavily to God and cry,
"Am I my brother's keeper?" Lo, wo stand
Like God to answer.

The Palladia Girl's Program was given
last Friday evening, May 20th. It was a
program that was unique and varied enough
to bo amusing and laughable at every turn.
In originality it surpassed any entertainment
given this year at tho University. And yet
Mother Goose's rhymes revised seemed to
please those in the audience who were not
attacked by the savage pen and smiling face
of the young lady who read the revision.
Traditions of the Society were gone over by
Ida Lewis. Between numbers "War Des
patches" from the Western Union were read
which tended to increase the excitement.
Then there was music by tho Parodian sextet
that lingers with pleasant memories in tho
mind. "My Uni Boy," sung to the tune of
"My Highland Laddie," and a revision of
"Comin' thro' the Bye" were especially
pleasing to the audience. After tho custom
ary recess and social time the young people
started for home, hut strangely enougk they
all went in the samo direction. The boys
insisted on stopping at the Grand Hotel where
the young people were received and welcomed
by Mr. Spcnce. Almost immediately the par
lors were abandoned and the prettily decor
ated dining roon, where the tables were tastily
arranged, was entered. The Ideal Mandolin
Club rendered pleasing music.
