CONCERT Tho Harmouia Society is to be con gratulated upon tho very excellent program given on Christmas Eve Tho selections were all of n character to load the listener to dwell on the coming of the Redeemer Tho open ing mid closing numbers taken from Handels oratorio of tho Messiah were given with the zest which they do maul and with a close adherence to the required tempo The cantata The Hope of the World by Schnecker was the chief number of the program This com position is not ono of great depth or inspiration but contained some fairly good numbers from which tho chorus succeeded iu gotting tho best thoro was It is unfortunate that there are so few compositions of this character for chorus work aside from the great oratios consequently selection be comes a very difficult mutter for tho conductor The remaining numbers comprising solos a quartette and a male chorus wore well given Tho weak points in the chorus work woro faulty attack producing rnggednosa of tone in tho opening and closing of a number lack of shading andcolor big Theso suits nro largely due to not following closely the directions of the conductor Tho oycs of the cho rus should dwell BO frequently on the conductor that no point be lost Tho accompaniments were given iu good taste und splendid form On tho whole tho performance was one of merit and all concerned are to be commended for its excellence A

for that The only thing I regret Is my connection with It at all Im willing to hand back the money on the weeks work Ho laid the money on the table nUll Itnnkln contemptuously struck It off on to tho floor Edward stood as still as before You can pick up your money I dont want It Edward still remained In tho same place and mid nothing Rankin after his passionate gesture and exclamation walked over to the window again Willis and a crowd of students were just returning from the ladles hall As they came noisily up tho steps singing Edward walked to the door saying na ho opened It Ive made up my mind not to carry tho papers another day Its the only course I can take Of course I will hand you the subscription lists as made up to date kSay come back a minuter nankin spoke In a quieter tone and Edward closed the door and stood with his back to It lie could hear Willis go Into the room across the hallway whistling and singing alternately Wont you carry the route until I can find another renter Its not an easy matter to transfer the route now that the terms so far along and the fellows all have secured some regular workEdward hesitated In real perplexity lIe did not have any faith In Ilnnklns sincerity and slid not know how long bo would probably put him off and pre tend that he could not find anyone else to take the route On time other hand now that he had made up life mind to give up the business Edward felt that every day added to his com pliance with an untruth Should he keep on lying merely to help Rankin find another poor student who would enter Into tho same compact to de ceive Ills answer when ho finely gave It was determined by that last consideration Tho accommodation to Itnnkln simply meant transferring tho same course of deceit to sonic ono else No I wont carry the paper another tiny he said doggedly Then you can go to the devil said Ilanktn with a burst of profanity Ive been to him already replied Edward with a glean of excitement the first ho had shown and I dont In tend to repeat the visit Ho went out without waiting to hear Itanklns reply and after pausing just a moment In tho hallway ho entered was blacking his shoes It was a curious custom ho hind just before ho went to bed During tho act ho always whistled As Edward como In he looked up and stopped his whistling long enough to say Hello Thought you came In long agoNo said Edward going Into his bedroom He came out again at once anti looked ntihln roommate thoughtfully Willis put hlj other foot up on tho chair anti started a now tune Ive been In to nor Itankln and told him I wont carry the papers any lon ger I cant stand It tulle any more Willis took his foot down and stared at Edward Wtll ho exclaimed finally In a tone that Edward could not quite un derstand What did Itankln say The last thing be said was to tell mo to go to tho devil And you came right In here lint Hay Willis suddenly walked over to Edward and to his great astonish ment put out his hand I want to slake I didnt think you would do It I honor you for It Not that my honor Is of any value hut then I dont want you to think I dont have any right Ideas about things because I do There Isnt a boy In the college that doesnt Then tou can go to the dcvtW laid Rank Ir t with a burst of profanity know the whole miserable business of the paper route deception Is lying out right I know It because Ive done It a year at a time myself Whats the use of trying to smooth It over We juniors havent taken up evidences and ethics yet but we have brains enough to know tile difference between a lie and a truth Stick to the truth my boy Thats what I say It was the first time Edward bad had a glimpse of the serious side of Pres tout For a moment he choked The tears came to his eyes and he could not soy anything When he did speak ho sold something which led Willis to ask questions about his home training In return Edward asked questions of Willis And that evening before they went to bed the two young men had learned more about each others family surroundings than they hind ever learn ed before The confidences they exchanged placed their friendship on an entirely new and more substantial ba sis Edward learned that Willis fa ther haul for years been a successful stockbroker In New York He had sep arated from his wife who had mqved west with her children the oldest of whom was Willis Willis spoke of his father with contempt and lapsed Into his reckless manner In a short descrip tion of him Dut the minute he spoke of his mother bo became gentle and his manner was more nearly like that which had surprised Edward at the be ginningIt very late when they went to bed arid after tho lights were out and It had been very quiet for a minute Willis called from his bedroom- I forgot to black mY other shoe And then he added In a serious tone I wish I hind no sins of omission any blacker than that to lay up against my selfIn the morning there was not a trace of his seriousness apparent only In the days that Immediately followed he evi dently had nn added respect for his roommate and the meeting ground tor them both was understood by both to be easier and more human It would not be so difficult as It had been for them 16 understand each other The next few days were a test of Ed ward Dlakos purposes How severe tho test was not oven be himself knew until long afterward Ho told Frccda what he L I done rind had a momentary delight In the effect of the news on her But It was followed by an un easiness that could not hide the suspi cion that Frccda was planning to leave time ladles hall In order to lessen her expenses and help him It was true however that all this did not to equal tho freedom be at once enjoyed In the dally knowledge that lie was out from under the burden of that con scious dally lie The real relief that bo felt was a thousand times compensa tion for all the added burdens of the question of his college expenses which now faced him anew For a week ho used every spare moment of his time trying to find some seemedusther In the neighborhood of the college or In the town But at last he sue ceeded In getting the care of a furnace at time house of one of tho professors and of a horse and cow at the residence of one of tho townspeople The dls tanee between tho two houses obliged him to take much more time for tho work than bo felt be ought to spare amid all ho received for his service at both places together was 325 a week But he finally Bottled down to his fall and winter work with a good degree of courage and a clear conscience Ran kin had disposed of his route to one of time freshmen and Edward heard noth ing more directly about It but that was not the end of the matter as ho found out before his college course was over Tho results of transgression of moral laws are farreachlng and the world learns the lesson painfully Bet ter that It learn It thus than never learn It at all It was tho beginning of November and everything In Hope college was now In full swing The secret societies the athletics the glee club the r literary open societies owing to tho unusual enrollment of students wero all flourishing Edward hind been In sited to join the lending literary so ciety as a promising freshman anti ho gettlngsinger and Willis who was a proml neat tenor In tho glee club and would have been glad If Edward could have been an applicant for admission gave him up after nn attempt on his part to test his roommates vocal powers Didnt you ever sing anything ho asked Edward one day after ho had coaxed him to try the scale The nearest I ever came to It Is what you have Just heard replied Ellwnrl1l1obcrlyIt the notes up and fired a gun at them you couldnt have scared them any worse said Willis pensively How much will you give ino to teach you the scale I havent money enough without selling the farm said Edward slowly But there was another part of tho college life that attracted Edward strongly and for which his sturdy phy sique fitted him to take a part If ho could only spare tho time from his work and his studies and that was tho athletic side of It Ho was naturally very vigorous and fond of outdoor life His farm training had dcvcloiKHl his muscles to slow rather than to rapid movements but all ho needed was gymnastic training to make a typical athlete of the better sort The football team for time year hind already been chosen but Edward began to play with time second eleven and after two weeks hard work the captain of time collego team ono day noticed sonic specially good play on his part and complimented him on It Say did you hear what Reynolds said about your play at the club to night asked Willis on the evening of that same day as tho boys were going up to their rooms No said Edward much pleased Well ho said If you kept up that kind of form you would be a good sub stitute for tho Thanksgiving day game In case Wallace was dropped Yes It would be a nice thing wouldnt It to put a green freshman Into Wallaces place just before that game growled one of the seniors But look at Brooks In 1S02 spoko up ono of tho boys who knew the roe ord of every football player for years back lie went In to play on the regular team before bo had been In college six weeks and ho made one of the best quarter backs Hope ever bad Of course said Willis What does the college care about a man whether hes freshman or professor whether bos 10 years or 100 whether ho knows a quadratic equation from n pitchfork If he can play football Thats all we want Play ball Edward said nothing but when bo nnd Willis had gono up to their room ho began to ask questions about tho team Ho did not really know the men on the eleven because they were with one exception upper class men nnd ho never met them In studies nnd did not oven know tho names of nil of them Willis wns usually perfectly Indiffer ent about everything In the college but football was tho one subject bo was enthusiastic over He told Edward all tho particulars about the team gave their records In the different games played gave quite a graphic description of tho finest run ever made across the gridiron nnd wound up by telling about the defeat of the university team at last Thanksgiving day game We ran In Walker on cm that game Walker was a semiprofessional The college paid him 200 to play on the team and ho registered as a sophomore taking special course In history or Egyptology or something 1 dont believe be over made a recitation In his life and he didnt know 1120 from a barrel of molasses but ho could play ball and thats all the college wanted You say tho college hired him Well the association Of course Its really tho same thing The association Is made up of a committee of profess ors and upper class men Then the professors knew that Walker was not a real bona fide stu dent but was allowed to register so as to play football Thats It replied Willis carelessly Its done by a good many colleges Of course the university men found out something and tried to kick on Walker but he was registered nil right as n student taking a special course and they had to play or forfeit the game We didnt think It was necessary to In form the university that the special course Walker elected was for the degree of F IVFoot Ball And Willis chuckled as he called up the Incidents In that particular game Edward was silent for awhile Then he said It looks to me as If a thing like that was lying Willis looked over at him and his lips curled slightly but It was not exactly scorn There was another feeling hack of It Well I suppose It is when you boll It down he replied Indifferently He pause and then added as If confiden tially Time fact Is of course that Pearsons tic new tackle Is a dummy student Ho registered last fall as a junior and Is supposed to be taking physics and botany About all tho physics he gets wouldnt turn the hair scales In the laboratory and nil the botany ho knows Is the color of the grass out on time campus But be can play football all right and hes earning Ids 150 good enough so far Do you mean that the professors know that Pearsons Is only a student In name and that he Is really In college Just to play bam Of course they know It They know that Pearsons will drop out at the end of tho second half He has no Intention of going through college Ho Is plan ning to spend the winter on a ranch In Nebraska lvo beard him say so But U we can beat the university agaIn on Thanksgiving day wo dont care whether he goes to Nebraska or Cuba Edward made no reply but opened his books and began Ills evenings study Willis pulled down a much buttered volume looked It over for about ten minutes shut It up threw It down on his table and said Thank good ness Ive mastered that subject Then ho reached up to his case and palled out a box of cigars lighted one and began to smoke After ten minutes ho got up nnd found another book which lay under n tennis hat a sweater and n boxing glove glanced through It hastily mnde n few figures on piece of paper put tho paper Into the book threw It on top of tho other one and exclaimed Ive got that all right Then he rose and went over to a little blackboard on his side of the room and put down a number of chemical formula copying them from the card that he took out of his vest pocket This occupied him about five minutes He carne back to his desk thumped on It once or twice carelessly and then went to n closet and took out collariand when Edward looked up again he was Just going out It was an unwrit ten rule with them that when either was studying they were not to talk or nsk questions but as Edward look ed at him Willis said Ive got everything for tomorrow nnd Im going down to tho society rooms a little while Jf tho president calls tell him Ill bo back In the morn ing In time to take breakfast with him I like my steak well done When Willis was gone Edward stud led on The difference between him and his roommate was shown In tho almost painful slowness with which Edward succeeded in getting his les sons He studied three different boots that evening but when ho laid the last one down it was half past 11 Before he went to bed ho went to the window and looked out on time campus Tho football field Iny just beyond nnd In the light of the electric lamp at the end of the walk by the library the goal posts showed up quite plainly Edward Blake looked out thoughtfully Sup pose Reynolds and tho team asked him to play In the university game or even to go down as a substitute what busl ness was It of his that the whole tram acted n silent He in the case of Pear sons The professors winked at the deceit It couldnt be anything very wrong and of course it was none of his business yet he had only Just fought out one battle along the same line Would ho have to go through It againBut then It isnt likely Ill be asked to play ho said at last Time enough to settle It when It comes But before ho went to sleep that night he know well enough how ho was going to settle the question Perhaps that Is the reason that he slept so soundly co well in fact that he did not hear his roommate come In somewhere about 2 oclock Ob the might of a life that It right That
