little praise generally. But still
there can be improvement, and if
onlv the good men would come out
and even at the last hour fight for
places on either team, great good
would result. Its a hard job, but
there's honor in holding a place on
the scrub team, for they give
strength to the Varsity.
Several students will accompany
the team on their southern trip.
They will be quite an encourage

not forget that there are about four
hundred of us back here with them
in spirit if not in body. Play hard.

they are still fighting for the college

Interesting Lecture Series.
The students doubtless will be glad
to know that some efforts are being
made to secure several good lecturers
during this winter.
Just a word in advance; in the first
place, we want none but the best and in
n the best possible shape. Look
out for Carolina that day. She'll

Nearly all of our college ex
changes abound in patriotic songs
and yells for their important foot
ball games. Why can't we have
something of the sort? We have
plenty of talent among us, plenty of
enthusiasm and a good team to in

songs? If only, some of our poets
would overcome their false modesty
a little and contribute something of

in helping the team on the victory.

lacking in much were we to go through

opportunity comes, the students will
make good use of it.

The Old Folks at Home.
Don't g-o to the theater, concert or ball,
But stay in your room to-night;
Deny yourself the friends that call,
And a good, long letter write
Write to the sad old folks at home,
Who sit, when the day is done,
With folded hands and downcast eyes.
And think of the absent one.
Dont selfishly scribbl, "Excuse my haste,
I've scarcely time to write,"
Lest their brooding thoughts go wander
To many a bygono night
When they lost needed sleep and rest.
And every breath was a prayer
That Cod would lead their delicate babe
To their tender love and care.
Don't let them feel that you've no more
Of their love or counsel wise J
For their hearts grow strongly sens.it ive
When age has dimmed their eyes:
It might be well to let tliem believe
You never forgot them quite,
That you deem it pleasure wheu far a way
A long letter home to write,
Don't think that the young and giddy
Who make your pastime gay.
Have half tho anxious thought for you
That the old folks have to-day.
The duty of writing do not put off,
Let sleep or pleasure wait,
Lest the letter for which they looked and
Be it a clay or an hour too late.
For the sad od foks at home.
With locks fast turning white,
Are longing to haar from the absent one
Vrite them a letter to-night.
