CHRISTMAS AT HOME '
THE SOLILOQUY OF THE RETURNED
When the days are short and gloomy,
and the sun gives frigid light,
When the star-beams shoot like need
les, through the shivering night,
When the cold deaf earth Is shrouded
In Its robo of white
' And tho clouds are frozen foam,
When the storm-king drives his char
iot down tho ley street,
And his hungry dogs go howling round
about your feet,
When the traveler finds about him
naught but Ice and sleet,
Then 'tis good to have a home.
When the sunlit windows glimmer like
to crystal gold,
When the whole house cracks and shiv
ers in the crunching cold,
When the tribes of elfs and goblins,
spooks and ghouls become most bold,
And the ghests do nightly roam,
When the mournful wind goes wailing
round about the door,
And the snow through cracks anil key
holes gently sifts upon the floor,
When the world without is frozen to
Then 'tis good to nave a home.
When there's lots of coal and kindling,
and the fire is blazing bright,
And the sitting room is flooded with a
warm and mellow light,
And tho children romp around it,
what a jolly sight,
Like a merry hippodrome
When the cellar's full of apples and
the pantry's full of jam,
When the attic's full of popcorn and
tho smoke-house full of ham,
Anu you've got an Invitation just to
come home and cram,
Then's the time to just go home!
When the cupboard's full of goodies
and the minco and pumpkin pie,
When the fatted calf is ready, and
Christinas draweth nigh,
Then you feel a funny feeling, and
heave a heavy sigh,
And vow you'll cease to roam;
When the young folks, and tho old
folks, and all who 'ro in between,
Gather round tho family fireside and
tell of how they'vo been,
While over in the corner a Christmas
tree is seen, '
O, then it's fine to bo at homo.
Ana when you're safely sheltered from
tho windy cold,
With the family all together, the young
folks and the old,
And the rosy gates of Christmas morn
bright ungcls do unfold,
Under Heaven's beauteous dome,
Ana when the love of Heaven seems to
breathe upon tho air,
Anu the birds and beasts and people
are happy everywhere,
Then 'tis good to pause a moment for
words of praise and prayer,
And thank God for Home, sweet
C. F. Yodkii.

THE MAIL BOXES.
It is around tho mail boxes more
than any other corner at the Univer
sity that overy phase and variety of
tho studont may bo soon. For how
ovor dlfforont wo may bo in most re
spects, we all have at least one thing
in common tho man is indeed an odd
genius, who does not take an interest
In the little box bearing tho first in
itial of his name, and even though wo
may bo almost sure that wo will find
nothing, there is always that delight
ful feeling of uncertainy, whinh the
dabbler in a lottery must feel "per
haps I shall draw a prize "
It is interesting to .itand back and
watch tho "procession" which, at cer
tain hours of the day, comes to this
rendezvous. First, wo see the boy
or girl, who has never before been
away from mother, and who comes ea
gerly, turning over with nervous fin
gers the bunch of nil sorts of papers,
letters and notices, hoping that some .
of tho homo people may have decided
to send a lino to the University, al
though only that morning a good fat
letter had been received, and the dis
appointment seems to bo deep and
Next appears the brisk student, who
runs tho political sldo of University
life by his clever wire-pulling In a
business-like manner ho runs over tho
mail in his own box, and that in tho
box of the organization, which he hap
pens at that moment to bo managing,
takes out several letters and hastens
away as briskly as ho has come.
Then there is the student who is al
ready lato to class, but he must stop
a minute longer to Inspect his mail
box and in his desire to hasten this
operation he usually succeeds in scat
tering most of the letters on mo floor,
and he really has not the time to pick
them all up, ho leaves a few lying
around and springs up the stairway,
four steps at a time.
The one who aggravates us most Is
the leisurely student he strolls up
to his box and although there are per
naps twenty others waiting for the
same package, he turns over each let
ter, reads the inscription to see that
there has been no mistake, and care
fully replaces the whole bunch, but ho
has taken so long that some less
calm individual has had to rush away
without looking for his letters, for fear
that the class room door will be locked
and the translation made with such
painstaking care go for naught.
Another man, of the aggravating
type, is the one who is not satisfied
with looking in his own box, but must
needs examine tho boxes of all ills
friends to seo how much mail they are
receiving this idle curiosity is most
We must not forget tho engaged girl
she not only receives voluminous
packets every day at home, but the
infatuated youth, whose ardor has, not
yet had time to cool, sends tender lit
tle missives to the University mail box
as well, and she turns away wih
beaming face and light step.
And so they come and go new
classes bring with them new fads, but
tho mall box is a fad that never grows
It is a great mistake of a young
person to bo Indifforent to his reputa
tion. Tho one who eays, "I do not
care what people think about me,"
is on dangerous ground. He shows
that ho puts little value on the judg
ment of those who know him, or ho
cares but little for himself. Such re
marks are often mado in the spirit
of mere bravado. They aro not the
real convictions of the ono uttering
thorn. No thoughtful person can ever
bo Indifforent to public opinion. All
persons must come, at this age, in
touch with society. Wo can not be
come hermits. But our relation to so
ciety is what society thinks of us. A
parson who is despised by his fellow
mon can do them no good, and in re
turn they feel that they can do us
no good. It was probably on this ac
count that Jesus asked his disciples:
"Who do men say that I am?" Ex.
An Improved Pbbny brake will be set
up In connection with the 25 h. p. ex
perimental engine to aid In the'making
of duty tests.
