Respectfully dedicated to the soldier who fired
the last nun in tlie Civil War, act at 44.
Just forty and four, tlie mile-stones read
Aloug life's journey to-day.
The path, looking back, seems short indeed;
In front, how seems the way?
The soldier well may ! 'halt" and muse
To. day, for a little time,
On the battle-fields lost and won,
Ere moving on in his prime.
Forty-four years of conflict and strife,
W<ptli foes without, within—
Fighting away a great part of life—
In infamy, "mustered" in.
First, passed into childhood's 4 'awkward
Life's "drilling" was well begun;
Then into youth's gay "regiment" sent,
And taught to wield manhood's "gun."
Battling against ignorance and sin,
The years have come and gone—
'Tis the same old tale that's always been,
Since man was made to mourn.
Then when the last "muster roll" is called,
And Death's muffled drumbeats "taps,"
The wearied soldier will sink to rest,
Without thought of the day's mishaps.
As day dawns on the eternal shore,
Heaven's "reville'1 shall break.. ,
The slumber deep, which the soldier keeps,
"Who will then his ".furlough" take!
A Good Beginning Makes A Good Ending
And such we think will be the
case with Chappell Bill Female
College during this scholastic year.
The month of September shows
such a marked advance all along
the line that it does not require
the pen of a philosopher or the
vision of a seer to foretell the suc-
cess that will crown our efforts.
The general management of our
college under President Tarrant,
and the direction of the several
departments under their respec-
tive chiefs are all that an exacting
public could require Miss Spen-
cer who has directed the Art de-
partment from its inception has
.now a larger class than at any for
tner period, and with lier accus-
tomed energy and the prestige of
her great success last term, it is
manifest that the liberality of our
patrons will soon be invoked to
furnish additional apartments.
Miss Sullivan enters upon her
fourth year in charge of the Pri-
mary department, under the con-
viction that she must sacrifice her
preferences for the good of the
children and already she has
brought order out of chaos and
her work is moving on smoothly.
Miss Park man continues in
charge of the classes in German
and French for which she has pe-
culiar fitness by careful training
and successful experience. Her
class in calisthenics have hereto-
fore made for her such a reputa^
tion as a drill-master, that she
holds indefiiitely her position as
"Commandant of the Corps '' Our
patrons are especially to be con-
gratulated upon our acquisition of
Prof, J. Alleine Brown as director
of Music. He came to us from
Baylor Female College at Indepen-
dence. where for the past eight
years be established himself as
one of the most successful teach-
ers in the South and now he has
permanently cast his lot with us
and already has fifty names upon
his register. He is ably assisted
by Mrs. Brown, Miss Jones and
Miss Kate Felder We have an-
other valuable acquisition from
Baylor in the person of Miss Stella
Jones who is proving herself
' worthy and well qualified ' in the
Higher Mathematics and Music
Miss Kate Felder, class of ?80. is
with us again perusing her studies
in Music, Art and Modern Lan-
guages, and doing some normal
As monitors Misses Grace Burk-
