WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22, 1911.
Monday morning, one-thirty, thougli
.sleepy and a majority of them in the
awakened realization of dreamland’s
aesthetic meanderings, the Elon College
base-ball team girded on their armor, rub
bed on their war paint and hied them-
sfJves to the rendesvous of the Atlantic
Christian College team, with blood in their
eyes and facial contour becoming true Ro
mans and if resolution and grim deter
mination were a criterion in the shaping
of the destiny of the Atlantic Christian
College’s has -ball banner for the next
two days, their seveial scalps respectively
were already dangling at the hells of the
Elon Cjullege players. The ride to Wilson
was nnevtntful saving a few exciting mo
ments, chief of them being wlien Mr. Hal
Chase .lolinson became violently ill off of a
mixture of pickles and salted peanuts, and
when the erstwhile calmness of the car’s
atmosphere was bi'oken by M|r. Caruso
Brockwell’s silver toned requests for more
chewing gum and bananas.
Having set foot upon the sandy terra
flrma of Selma and the train for Wilson
yet several hours away, Elon’s robust hall
tossers did nothing but anxiously await
day’s breaking. It finally broke without
huiting any of them, thanks to sti'ong con
stitutions. After being properly tagged
they set out upon an exploration of this
city in its labyrinth o f streets and livery
stables. Free lunch stands not opening
for some time they were finally rounded up
in time to catch the train and do honor
with illnniinating optics to the landscape
and unrivalled scenic beauty enroute to
liunch at 12 N. Ride to ball field 3.00 p.
m. 4.00 p. m. game commences. Not many
wildly enthusiastic Fans and Fannies in
evidence but excitement at fev«r heat and
rivalry vrnrivalled. Atlantic Christian
College takes the field. Tyriis Raymond
Sparrow tirst up at bat for Elon. Win-
sted, the husky Christian winds himself
into fourteen knots, whirls his trusty
bread tong in loops, ovals and triangles
with lightning-liko rapidity when finally
the horsehide sphere in its mad voyage is
directed toward* the home plate, then,
bang! and before the spectators had re
covered their breaths the aforesaid sphere
was passing through the penumbra where
Bi other Horizon stoops to kiss old Mother
Earth, nor, did its mad flight cease until
the lucky Elonite was happily ensconced
upon the initial sack-still full of the ecs-
tacy of “gettin a hit.” Clouds hover
around overhead and grumble. Jupiter
Pluvius now butts into the scenery and
the Elonites must content themselves with
just two rntrs and three innings of a might-
have-been interesting mixrrp.
Pearson’s pitching excellent. No hits
off of his delivery. Elon’s every player
did himself credit. (Manager Ingle seen
in grandstand with tears in his eyes try
ing to sympathize with certain of the
Back to the Hotel and justice to a boun
tiful repast, and the Elon team in fine
humor, just that condition of mind and
body best suited to the fullest etrjoymenl
of the greater jdeasures, and they were
not long in the realization of a great
pleasure, for Atlantic Christian College
tende;ed them an invitation to attend in
a body a reception in the spacious halls
of the college. Upon arrival at the college
the team found that the r«ceptiorr was
given by and in honor of the Hesperian
Literary Society’s victory at debating ov
er its contemporary.
The halls were- clothed in a happy color
scheme, with myriads of pennants upon
the walls lending to the atmosphere frater
nal spirit and college love. The value of
this fitting environment was made superr
lative, the occasion and its intention hon
ored by the presence of a number of the
young lady students, gentlemen and ladies
(if the faculty, and last but not least; Pres
ident and Mrs. (’ahlwell and little Miss
After a pleasant fifty minutes at “Pro
gressive Conversations” a very interest
ing method of determining what compan
ion slionld vie with you in the indulgetrces
of the dining room was begun. Romeo must
find his .luliet, Alden his Priscilla and
Jacob his Rachel. Next came entre into
the large and beautifully decorated din
ing room. After joining Doctor Caldwell
in a return of thanks befitting the occasion
the diners were treated with corrrse num
ber one which was interspersed with ex
cellent toasts by members of the faculty^
and by members of the visiting team in ■
Messrs. Ingle and Hedgptth. Mr. Ingle
in appreciation and well wishes for At
lantic Christian College-, and Mr. Hedg-
peth; well, if you know him “nuff sed.”
Some more corrrses, then the “Piece de
resistarrce: ” Oysters. During their en
joyment there was a rare treat for every
body in a masterly rendition by Jliss Jen
nings of the department of Elocution. A
beautiful piano solo by Miss Settle.
Pleasure seems to speed the hours. The
bells are ringing midnight. The parting
of friends new jihysically, but spiritually,
destined frcmr beginning. Elon Collge
base-ball team leaves the hospitable at
mosphere and pleasantness of Atlantic
Christian College happy becatrse still fresh
in memories of the evening, but withal,
so.ry that “Good Bye” comes so quickly.
We of the team repeat our toast of Mon
day evening: “Long live Atlantic Chris
tian College and its good people. ’ ’
Well, we dropped one to Trinity, but let
the dead past bury its dead. It is easy to
see that with the regular arrangement of
men, we have a bunch that can play ball,
Newman’s stunt, pulled off in the
shape of a squeeze play, worked to per
fection, also his little bluff toward second.
“Prosperity” has a few benders, quips
and curves, too.
Who said we needed a catcher? “Pret
ty” Jim was on his job and showed grit
worthy of pounds greater than his.
Everyone enjoyed the trip and Trinity
ti'eated us white. The Methodists are
a clever set of fellows.
Hard luck the games at Wilson could
not be played, with the Atlantic Christian
College. But that reception and banqrret
was a rare treat for the team. Every

luck is against, but we can play against
the deck and then win if we will. His
sensational work at Durham during the
seven inrrings he did play, entitles him to
Farmer’s runnirrg catch of Anderson’s
drive to center was of the premier type.
In fact the whole outfield played classy
ball, arrd the Dirrhamites think the game
uninteresting. Well, srrppose they do?
The infield needs a little rubbing to
make it what it ought to be. Errors may
lose the game when nothing else will.
Some good hard practice will be gone
throrrgh with preparatory to the LaFayette
game Saturday. This will be the most
expensive game we will have, so every
one come out and see the gentlemen from
The rcseries had a little “round” Sat
urday while the team was at Durham.
Bland, as catcher, showed rrp well and
someone may lose his job before June if
he be not careful. He has a good arm and
lots of ginger.
Moore showed good speed and flashes of
control. He may make a pitcher.
Give them all a chance, as that is the
only way we can get the best men in
college, on the team.
March 22, 1911.
R— lived a family not very poor, nor very
rich. The members of this farunj-
1 he father, mother, and two little children,
one boy and one girl. The little girl was
about eight years old and nameu .
and her little brother Hans was about
four years yourrger than herself.
It was in a pretty country home that
this family lived happily for just a few
years. After which the home was broken
up by the death of a loving father and
husband. This little boy and girl were
too yourrg their to krrow what death meant,
but ah! it was not long before they realiz
ed the meaniirg of this sad word at which
so many of us shrrdder. For it was only
a few moie years when their mother was
called from this earth by the voice of orrr
loving Heavenly Father.
After the death of the father the moth
er and children lived on in their own coun
try home. Mother looking after the work
of her household duties, and having the
farm attended just as near like her hus
band had always done as possible. While
little brother and sisten played and en
joyed out door sports that all children
who like nature enjoy in the beautiful
corrrrtry fields and woods.
Regardless of the fact that mother had
lots of work to do, she never neglected
her duty toward her children which is the
work of every ideal mother: That of train
ing her children and teaching them about
their blessed Savior. Never did she think
of retiring at night no matter how much
her toil, and how hard her labor during
the day without reading the Bible or tell
ing some pretty Bible story and praying
with her children who were her only joy
and the only persons for whom she had
to work here in this world.
Everything around this home went on
chetrfully and smoothly, but friends and
