The Re-union of the old students, both graduates and non-graduates, of
Trinity College took place on Wednesday, June 13th, at 2 P. M.

The occasion was full of interest and profit to both students and
general visitors. The most of the classes, since the foundation of the
college, were represented and the representatives, in short speeches,
told the history of their respective classes. It is noteworthy in all
the talks of the occasion that greater interest is being manifested
in Trinity’s future than ever before. The Alumni and friends are all
convinced that it is high time that the Methodists of North Carolina
should pay their long contracted debt to this grand old institution of
learning.

Commencement, the long wished for period in the scholastic year, has
come and gone. Everything passed off so pleasantly and quietly that the
exercises now seem only a dream. Every exercise of commencement week
was favored with good weather and a large audience. The exercises began
on Friday evening with the orations and declamations by representatives
of the preparatory and special classes. The speakers did well. The
representatives of the Freshman and Sophomore classes delivered their
orations on Saturday evening. These orations were well written and well
delivered. The sermon, delivered Sunday morning by Rev. W. H. Moore,
of Washington, N. C., was greatly enjoyed by all. The Praise meeting
on Sunday evening at 8 p. m., proved a success. On Monday evening, the
Juniors delivered their orations. These orations were very interesting
and showed a great deal of original work on the part of the orators.
Owing to the sickness of Dr. Bays, the address before the two societies
was not delivered on Tuesday evening. The sermon on Wednesday, before
the graduating class, was indeed a fine effort, and all were convinced
that the subject preached from, “Go, and may God go with you,” had been
complied with by Rev. W. E. Creasy. Hon. J. W. Mauney addressed the
alumni association on Wednesday night for a few minutes on the subject
of “Law and Order.” About eight hundred dollars were raised. The
exercises of Thursday were of special interest. The Seniors delivered
their orations with ease and interest. The address which had been
delayed until this time was now delivered. Without doubt, this was the
finest address delivered at this college in many a year. Immediately
after the degrees were conferred and the Medals presented, Mr. W. G.
Burkhead, in well chosen words and felicitous manner, spoke in behalf
of endowment for a chair, to be called the “Braxton Craven Chair,” in
honor of him who so long and so faithfully toiled for the institution.



The Clergy as Exhibited in the Vernacular Literature before the
Reformation.


The clergy of the Middle Ages and previous to the Reformation were
secularized. To the spiritual wants of the masses they gave little
heed, but spent the large portion of their time in riotous living, in
ambitious schemes, and in devising means by which to retain their hold
on the superstitions of the common people. The monks, whose chief vow
was that of personal poverty, had become so wealthy in the aggregate,
that the monasteries were seats of the most comfortable living to be
found. They were composed of several different orders, the chief of
which were the Franciscan and the Dominican, who hated each other so
bitterly that Luther’s crusade against Tetzel was regarded by the Pope
as merely one of the common quarrels between the two orders of monks.
The fairest buildings, the best filled larders, the most fertile
fields, the enormous revenue which poured into their coffers, and
the patronage of the mighty hierarchy of Rome, all conspired to make
pleasant the lives of the members of these powerful corporations.

The larger part of the expenses of these great establishments had to
be borne by the lower classes of the people, to whom the monastic
orders were supposed to minister. This was oppressive everywhere,
but was complained of most bitterly in Germany. Here the extortions
of the Romish Church left scarcely the means of sustenance and the
poor peasant was continually harassed by demands for more money. No
religious ceremony could be performed, nothing could be done for his
benefit, nor even a Christian burial, without the dropping of gold into
the hand of the priest, so that, in the language of a contemporary
writer from among the people, it seemed indeed that Heaven itself was
closed to those that had no money.

In other countries, also, these evils were great, more especially in
Italy, where the Papal court was held. Here the supreme rulers of the
Catholic Church, who should by their virtues have set the example of
a consistent Christian life to those under them, devoted themselves,
sometimes to political intrigues for the aggrandizement of themselves
and their own house, sometimes in carousing and wild dissipation, in
which under pontiffs like Alexander VI., the excess of their wickedness
disgraced Christendom. Revenues extorted from all sides were squandered
as freely as water on magnificent palaces and costly works of art.
The monasteries, with all their abuses in the worst period of their
existence never attained the height of wickedness which was developed
at different periods by the highest dignitaries of the court of Rome.

Thus we would naturally conclude that the oppressive tendencies of the
priesthood, and indeed of the whole machinery of the Romish Church,
together with the unholy career so commonly led by men occupying its
most sacred offices, to whom the people would justly look for an
example of vastly different life, would have a powerful effect toward
the alienation of the masses. These were supplemented by an evil
of probably greater tendencies in the same direction, and of wider
influence for mischief. This was the perversions and innovations which
from time to time had been made in the original Christian doctrine by
the priests. For several centuries back, indeed not long after the time
of Christ, changes had begun to appear in the Christian religion. As
it was introduced into foreign countries, it often absorbed some of
the customs and traditions of the worship it had supplanted. Besides
this, numberless saints were created, every prominent pope or martyr
being canonized, days of the year were set bearing their names and
observances in their honor, then fasts, feasts, anniversaries and
jubilees, many of which were of heathen origin, followed. Many new
requirements, such as celibacy, were laid upon the priests, and
such ceremonies as the burning of candles and the saying of masses
had become a prominent part of religion, so that, with these things
and numerous others of a like nature, the life of the Catholics was
burdened with onerous exactions, not one-tenth of which could have been
justified by reference to the Holy Scriptures.

The reasoning of the early writers, which finally culminated in the
abstruse discussions of the schoolmen, developed some remarkable
doctrines. They discovered that all holding offices in the Church,
from the priests up, were forbidden to marry, they ordered the shaving
of their heads and denounced the wearing of beards as a sin, and
they proclaimed, on the authority of certain documents known as the
Isodorian Decretals alleged to have been miraculously found in the
second century, that the Pope was the successor of St. Peter, and
therefore under divine guidance and unable to err or do anything wrong,
a doctrine, however, which the career of such a pope as Alexander VI.
would be calculated to seriously upset. These writers, in recording
the events of the past, sadly failed to adhere to strict accuracy of
statement, and interwove with the facts astonishing tales of miraculous
events and legends of martyrs, saints and devils, which, though now so
palpably absurd as to be interesting only as relics of the Middle Ages,
were then seized on with unhesitating faith by the larger portion of
the people.

These and many other uncouth things were forced upon the credulity
of the mediæval peoples and, as we have said, found such general
acceptance among the common people that to disbelieve them implied a
lamentable want of faith. Many of these outlandish legends, which once
obtained so general credence, have been handed down to the present
generation. Such are the legends of St. George, Prester John, the
Wandering Jew, Antichrist and Pope Joan, the Seven Sleepers of Ephesus.

With the Church thus superstitious and oppressive, so warped and
distorted from that pure religion which Christ gave to his disciples
and to the world, it is not strange that learned men, who were above
superstition should turn to humanism and to the doctrines of Socrates,
Plato, and Aristotle, seeking in the works of the ancient philosophers
a purer guide to holiness than that held out to them by the Church of
Rome. Nor was this all. The common people, who had patiently endured
it for centuries, were becoming restive under the grievous system, so
that the sixteenth century opened with general signs of discontent and
dissatisfaction among the peasantry, the unlearned, the agricultural
and laboring classes of a large portion of Europe. They bewailed their
hard lot and the severity of their rulers, they spoke in anger and
scorn of the degeneracy and licentiousness of the clergy, and demanded
indignantly to know why they were so absorbed in the world and so
negligent of their duties and of the pressing spiritual wants of those
around them. This feeling did not spring up suddenly, it was a slow
but steady growth extending through many generations. That grand poet
Geoffrey Chaucer, more than two hundred years before the time of which
we speak, in the first great poems of the mother tongue that England
had ever written, had sharply attacked the clerical abuses of his day.
He transfixes with his indignant scorn the mummeries and chicanery, the
extortions and oppressions practiced by the priesthood, those worthless
officers of the Church, who devoted themselves to the pleasures of the
chase and to riotous living and worldly schemes, and who spent their
time amid the gaities of London, wholly regardless of their neglected
charges. So plainly does he picture it to us that we can almost see the
pompous monk, the clerk, the choleric reeve, the summoner, and the man
whom he holds up for our admiration and reverence, the “poore persoun
of a town,” a simple, honest man who faithfully performed his duties,
who, living an exemplary Christian life might himself thus the more
efficaciously teach it to others and who never divided his attention
nor distracted his mind by meddling in ambitious schemes outside his
appointed work. These works, voicing the formless opinions of the
people had an influence.

Shortly previous to the reformation came from the pen of William
Langland the “Vision of Piers Ploughman,” a long poem of several
divisions, which also attacked the clerical abuses, the negligence and
lax-mindedness of the clergy on moral principles and pointed out the
imperative need of reform. This book contained much that was elevated
and noble, and was at the time of its publication a power for good in
England.

Already had the Bible been translated. Moreover, many were actively at
work scattering the seed of reformation in the mother tongue, but time
does not permit us to dwell on them now, as we must pass on to glance
at the progress of this work in other nations.

In Germany, Ulrich von Hutten, a distinguished knight and a polished
scholar, denounced the abuses of the Romish Church and wielded his
poet’s pen in defense of the approaching revolution, while in Italy
the Papal court had scarcely recovered from the bitter denunciations
of popish tyranny and ecclesiastical vice, by which Savonarola had for
a time aroused the Christian world. In Spain, Valdez, the brother of
Charles V.’s private secretary, had also severely commented upon the
evils of the same corrupt system, and it is certain that a condition of
affairs could be found in Spain to justify the most severe condemnation
that could be administered by the pen of man. That these writings
exercised a wonderful influence in their time is beyond doubt. It
is not too strong a figure to say that those men, who thus vividly
pictured, in a language understood by the masses, the evils and wrongs
they suffered, and pointed out in the future light of a brighter and
a better day, were new John Baptists, arousing the Christian world
to prepare itself for freedom from the tyranny and sin of the Roman
Catholic Church.



TRINITY.


This is a critical time in the history of the College and a suitable
time, in the judgment of the editors, to give a short sketch of the
institution in the past, a summary of facts incident to important
changes in the present year, and an outline of plans proposed for the
future. This edition of THE ARCHIVE is especially addressed
to the Methodists of North Carolina, the patronizing Conference, and
to the Alumni. We bespeak for the three following articles a careful
perusal.


TRINITY’S PAST.[1]

The following facts have been gathered from authoritative sources.

By an act of the Legislature in 1859 Normal College was changed to
Trinity. The connection with the State was revived and the institution
became a regular denominational college. Increased prosperity was the
result of this arrangement. From 1859 to 1862, the average number of
matriculation annually was 204; the gross income, seventy-five hundred
dollars per annum, losses three hundred and eighty dollars, gratuitous
tuition, eight hundred and thirty dollars.

[1] The facts here given, it must be kept in mind, are for the period
beginning with 1859.

During the whole time, expulsions five; deaths, three; conversions,
one hundred and sixty-five. These were by far the most prosperous
years the College has ever had; current expenses were more nearly met
than at any time in the following 20 years, opposition had died away,
agents appointed by the Conference were readily securing ample funds
for elegant and commodious buildings. Some gentlemen were proposing to
inaugurate a handsome endowment, every thing was favorable for a secure
foundation of prosperity. By the war, all was changed.

During the war, the exercises of the institution were continued with
a variable but constantly decreasing number of students. In 1863 Dr.
Craven resigned as President, and was stationed for two years at
Edenton Street church, in the city of Raleigh.

Prof. W. T. Gannaway was placed in charge as President _pro tempore_,
and continued with a small number of students until the arrival of
General Hardee’s corps in April, 1865. Dr. Mangum pays Prof. Gannaway
the following tribute: “He has been toiling with great fidelity and
usefulness for over thirty-two years. He has stood by the struggling
school throughout all its vicissitudes. For 27 years he had the
enormous work of eight full recitations a day. His chairs of Latin has
sometimes been loaded with Greek, sometimes with History, sometimes
with French. But he has carried his burden over the long years most
nobly and heroically. Emory and Henry did a blessed work for North
Carolina when she sent Trinity this accomplished christian teacher.
What a debt we all owe him.” After April, 1865, the exercises were
suspended until the following January. In the fall of 1865, Dr. Craven,
the former president, was re-elected, and having been requested by
the Conference to accept the position, he proceeded immediately after
Conference to repair and re-open the institution.

From 1866 to 1876 the average number of matriculations was one hundred
and fifty-five; gross annual income, six thousand dollars; losses,
three hundred and forty dollars; gratuitous tuition, six hundred
and twenty; for the whole time, deaths, four; expulsions, four;
conversions, three hundred and thirty-two.

From 1859 to 1887 inclusive, there have been 340 graduates including
three ladies. Of these there are 53 lawyers, 20 physicians, 34
preachers, 70 teachers and professors in colleges, 12 journalists, and
the rest farmers and merchants.

Of Trinity’s Alumni, 5 have become judges, 7 solicitors, 11 either
presidents or professors of leading colleges, 49 have been members of
the Legislature of the different States and Territories. Quite a number
of them have been in Congress from 2 to 8 years.

The honorary degree of Master of Arts has been conferred upon 17
persons, Doctor of Divinity upon 22, and Doctor of Laws upon 3.

The Professors have been as follows:

       {L. Johnson, A. M., 1859-1884.
    [2]{I. L. Wright, A. M., 1859-1865.
       {W. T. Gannaway, A. M., 1859 to the present.
        O. W. Carr, A. M., 1868-1877.
        Rev. Peter Doub, D. D. 1866-1870.
        W. C. Doub, A. M., 1867-1873.
        J. W. Young, 1864-1865.
        Rev. W. H. Pegram, A. M., 1875, to the present.
        C. P. Frazier, A. M., 1878-1879.
        J. D. Hodges, A. M., 1879-1882.
        Rev. J. F. Heitman, A. M., 1883 to the present.
        H. H. Williams, A. M., 1884-1885.
        J. M. Bandy, A. M., 1884 to present.
        A. W. Long, A. B., 1884-1887.
        N. C. English, A. M., 1884, to present.
        J. L. Armstrong, 1887, to present.

[2] Johnson and Wright were Professors 4 years in Normal College and
Gannaway 2 years.

On the 7th of November, 1882, Rev. B. Craven, D. D., LL. D., the
honored President and founder of the institution, died, and Prof. W. H.
Pegram was appointed chairman of the Faculty till the Board of Trustees
could meet and elect a President but it was deemed advisable by the
Board to continue that arrangement until the close of the scholastic
year.

At the Commencement in June, 1883, Rev. Marcus L. Wood, A. M., D.
D., a graduate of Trinity of the class of ’55, was chosen President,
who assumed the duties of this position on the 5th day of Sept., of
the same year, and all fears that the College would not survive the
death of its great founder passed away. President Wood was assisted by
four Professors, who did all in their power to promote the interests
of the College. At the meeting of the Conference, 1884, President
Wood resigned and Rev. John F. Heitman was appointed chairman of
the Faculty, under whose administration the financial as well as
other features of the College were greatly improved. This period
marks an epoch in the history of Trinity College. At the same time
that Professor Heitman was appointed chairman of the Faculty, H. H.
Williams, J. M. Bandy, N. C. English and A. W. Long were elected
Professors. The chairman with his corps of instructors infused new life
into the College, which has resulted in rapid growth and development.

One special feature of this administration was the establishment of a
Preparatory Department over which the efficient and popular Prof. N. C.
English still presides.

This period is closed with the election to the Presidency of J. F.
Crowell, A. B. (Yale), who entered upon his office at the beginning of
this scholastic year.


THE PRESENT.

This is an age of progress in almost every department, but in none
more so than in educational affairs. The institution that does not
imbibe this progressive spirit will soon be relegated to the shades
of antiquity. New methods of teaching and of managing young men
have now been adopted in most of the leading institutions of this
country. Trinity during the past year has made rapid strides toward
the attainment of better methods by which the young men of this State
may be able to secure thorough collegiate education. This reform has
been as marked in the management of the students as in the methods of
instruction. A young man is now put on his honor as to his conduct.
He is supposed to possess the elements of true manhood, and it is not
considered necessary to have spies to watch his every movement. This
tends to make him better behaved than he, perhaps, would otherwise be.
Each class has a dean and a monitor, a professor acting as dean and a
member of the class as monitor. The monitor reports all absentees from
chapel exercises, and the absentees hand their excuses to the dean of
their class who presents it to the faculty. The decision of the faculty
can be learned by reference to the bulletin board. This method, in
the end, saves a great deal of time and trouble. There has been
better order during the past year than in almost any other year of
the college’s history. The libraries of the two Societies have been
consolidated and placed in a more commodious and suitable room. A first
class reading-room has been established, and now no student has any
excuse for being ignorant of the current news of the day, as the very
best newspapers and magazines can always be found on the reading-room
tables. One of the most beneficial steps taken by the students of the
institution was the formation of a branch of the Y. M. C. A., which
has already resulted in great good. The grandest movement, though,
that has yet been undertaken by the young men of this institution is
their having obligated themselves to do all in their power to raise
enough money to erect a new building to be used for the library and
the Society halls. This shows the enthusiasm that has been awakened
among the students by the wise and efficient work done by the various
members of the faculty during this year; it shows that they are
heartily in sympathy with all the efforts for the college’s up-building.
The curriculum has been improved, having been considerably extended,
especially in the departments of English and History. Two well
equipped, progressive teachers have been placed at the head of these
departments, and the result is that the scholars are more thorough
on these two important branches of collegiate education. Heretofore
the chairs of History and English have been consolidated, necessarily
causing the instruction in each to be rather limited. This is the first
year in which Trinity has had a President, since the resignation of
Rev. M. L. Wood, D.D. Two new members of the faculty have, of course,
added no little towards the means of usefulness of the institution.
More students have matriculated here during this year than in any one
of the past ten years, which should be a great encouragement to the
friends of the college. This school year has been indeed a turning
point for the better in Trinity’s career, new fields of thought have
been opened up to the students. Every alumnus of this institution
should feel proud of what his _Alma Mater_ has achieved during this
year under somewhat adverse circumstances, and should rally to the
rescue, and show his appreciation by doing all in his power to sustain
the “new administration” by getting as many young men as possible to
come here next fall.


THE FUTURE.

This has been, indeed, an auspicious year for Trinity. Not only has the
year’s work been good and the institution brought more prominently
before the public, but there has been work done within its walls that
is indicative of a bright future and that can be correctly measured
only by the future. The President and Faculty have faithfully labored
with an eye to the future, believing that time and experience will
prove the wisdom of their course. The curriculum has been revised.
It is their object to keep it squarely abreast with the educational
demands of the age. The College is now divided into two Departments:
the Academic, including the first two years; and the Scientific,
including the last two years.

The Academic has three courses: the Classical, the distinguishing
studies of which are Greek and Latin; the Modern, distinguished by
German and French; and the English, requiring English studies only.
Mathematics, English and History are equal in the three. Other studies
are not equal, consequently, the conditions for admission to College
will not be the same for all the courses, the Classical requiring
the most. These conditions will be enlarged from year to year as may
be thought best. In this Department, special attention will be given
to mental discipline, to methods and to laying such foundations in
study as will best prepare students for the more independent work and
scientific research to follow.

The Scientific Department is composed of fifteen different schools,
and this number may be expanded according to the number of instructors
employed. Its characteristic features are the cultivation of all the
Sciences, original inquiry and freedom to select from these schools
studies, within certain prescribed limits, according to the peculiar
taste of the student. This curriculum will lead to four different
degrees, according to the selections made from the schools. It is,
consequently, varied sufficiently to please all, from the classically
inclined to the devotee of science, and full and thorough enough to
satisfy the demands which the age is making upon Colleges. Indeed,
the general, but constant, aim will be to make the college a more
potent and independent factor, through its influence, for moulding
public opinion and elevating public life, in religion, in education,
in government and in the industries of the country. In order better
to do this, and believing that the time has come when there is a wise
demand for three _different_ institutions in our national educational
system, the Preparatory school, the College, and the University, the
authorities have abolished the Preparatory Department heretofore
connected with the College, and will give their influence to the
up-building throughout the State of first class preparatory schools,
which may act as feeders to the Colleges. The lack of such schools has
greatly retarded the advancement of education throughout the whole
country. College work should begin where that of the better class of
lower schools closes, and end where the best Universities take it
up. This is the rational, economical plan, and the one that Trinity
proposes to follow. Thus each of the three institutions will be better
able to do its peculiar work. The College will be relieved and can, in
turn, relieve the Universities of the burden of doing College work, and
then the Universities can engage their powers in answering the demand
for true University work.

This is a general statement of the Faculty’s plan for the future work
and management of the College, but they are not alone in the work. They
have an active, energetic Board of Trustees to co-operate and assist by
action as well as by word. It is the Board’s purpose and determination,
so far as in them lies, to make and keep the institution the peer of
the best of its kind in the South. Upon them, in a large measure,
devolves the financial support and management and, consequently, the
success of the institution. To this demand they are ready to respond,
and are responding. Every one that has given the subject thought
concurs with the late Dr. Craven that “to meet the demand of the times,
keep pace with improvements and growth, and hold equal pace with a host
of noble competitors, one hundred thousand dollars endowment must be
realized at an early day. Her alumni and friends _can_ do the work.”
While the endowment has long been delayed, Trinity has done a work
without it, of which any institution might be proud. But with this fund
partly raised and the rest well under way, we think we see a career
before Trinity that will make glad the heart of every Methodist and of
every friend of christian education, provided always that he has done
his part in consummating the noble work. To do this fully requires
only an effort from each one. Then will not every one unite hands with
the devoted, self-sacrificing Faculty and earnest Board of Trustees in
achieving a work that is to surprise the most hopeful? What say you,
reader? or, rather, what will you _do_ toward securing this nucleus of
an endowment?



SENIOR CLASS OF ’88.


William Eugene Fink was born in Cabarrus county, N. C., Nov. 2nd,
1862; alternately worked on his father’s farm and attended neighboring
schools until eighteen years of age; then joined a ‘trestle-building
gang’ on the Ducktown Rail Road, and continued employed in this
occupation for one year; returned home and entered North Carolina
College January, ’82, where he remained till May 20th, ’83; entered the
Freshman Class at Trinity College September 10th, ’83; was out during
the session of ’84-’5; returned and entered the Sophomore Class August
25th, ’85. After receiving his diploma, Mr. Fink will rusticate for the
summer upon his father’s farm; he will then seek the broad plains of
the West, and join the revelries of the ‘coyotes’ and the Indians and
the cow-boys.

James Joseph Scarboro, first saw the light in Montgomery county, N. C.,
July 23rd, 1863; worked upon his father’s farm till 1883, attending the
common schools of the community when such were being taught; entered,
after 1883 Mt. Gilead High School, and there under the tuition of Prof.
R. H. Skeen, remained two years; entered the Sophomore class at Trinity
College in August, ’85. Mr. Scarboro proposes to make teaching his life
work.

Edward L. Ragan was born March 26th, 1864, at “Bloomington,” N. C.;
labored on the farm until 1881, sometimes attending public schools;
entered, in 1881, the Preparatory Department at Trinity College; left
college in ’82, and sold goods in High Point; re-entered college at
Trinity in ’85, this time joining the Freshman Class, half advanced.
When Mr. Ragan receives his diploma, he intends to till the soil.

Joseph Amos Ragan was born at “Bloomington,” N. C., Sept. 26th, 1865.
He, too, farmed and attended public schools. His principle occupation
while on the farm was driving oxen, and he tells some amusing incidents
about his “tail-twisting” experience. Mr. Ragan entered the Preparatory
Class at Trinity in ’81, but after ’82 dropped out. He re-entered
College in ’85. Mr. Ragan has not fully decided as to his occupation
after leaving college, but thinks he will teach or read medicine.

William Alexander Barrett, entered this world in Caswell county, N. C.,
the 2nd or 4th day of February, 1867. Being a Methodist preacher’s son,
he has had no fixed home, having lived in nine or ten different towns
in North Carolina, but in not one of them longer than four years. The
meagre preparation which Mr. Barrett had to enter college was obtained
at Statesville Male Academy. He entered the Freshman Class at Trinity
College in August of ’85. Mr. Barrett intends to make the law his
profession.

Daniel Calhoun Roper was born April 1st, 1867, in Marlboro county, S.
C. Mr. Roper being the son of a farmer was brought up as a farmer boy.
He attended the schools of his neighborhood until 1881, when he entered
Laurinburg High School in Richmond county, N. C. Here he remained
until ’84, when he entered Wofford College, Spartanburg, S. C. He was
taken sick in the latter part of his Sophomore year, and was compelled
to leave college on account of his health. Being attracted by the
healthful climate and by the hospitality of the North Carolina people,
Mr. Roper came to Trinity in September of ’86 and entered the Junior
Class. He will continue to farm, after getting his diploma.

Theodore Earl McCrary has for his birth-place Lexington, N. C., and
for his birth-day June 5th, 1867. He worked with his father in the
furniture business, and attended various schools in Lexington, the
chief of which was that conducted by Miss Laura Clement and the
Southern Normal. Mr. McCrary came to Trinity College Jan. 12th, 1886
and entered the Junior Class. He remained away from college during
the fall term of ’86 on account of ill-health, but returned at the
beginning of the spring term of ’87. Mr. McCrary is as yet undecided as
to what shall be his occupation.

John Spenser Bassett was born Sept. 10th, 1867, at Tarboro, N. C. While
he was an infant his father moved to Goldsboro, N. C. At the age of
nine years he moved to Richlands, Onslow county, N. C., but returned to
Goldsboro in a few years and that is now his home. Mr. Bassett attended
Richlands Academy; was graduated in ’85 from Goldsboro Graded and High
School; then attended Davis School; came to Trinity in August of ’86
and entered the Junior Class. After leaving college, Mr. Bassett will
“do anything honorable which affords a support.”

George Newton Raper was born Dec. 15th, 1867 near High Point; worked on
the farm and attended the “back-woods” school until Jan., 1883, when he
went to Oak Ridge Institute; remained in school there till November of
the same year, and then taught a public school for three and a half
months; entered the Blair High School at High Point in March ’84, and
remained there until June ’85, completing the course in this school;
then for a time sold books in Guilford county, and the people of that
county still refer to him as “Book Agent;” taught school during the
winter of ’85-’86, and entered the Sophomore Class at Trinity College
Feb. 3d, 1886. Mr. Raper will teach.

John C. Montgomery was born in Concord, N.C., Aug. 30th, 1868. Concord
has always been his home. He was prepared for college at Concord High
School under the tuition of Prof. R. S. Arrowwood. Mr. Montgomery came
to Trinity College Aug. 24th, 1885 and entered the Sophomore Class. He
proposes to read medicine after leaving college. It is his intention
to confine himself to a specialty, and he will devote himself to the
treatment of the eye.



ANECDOTES TOLD BY OLD BOYS.


_Rabbit vs. Cat._—Formerly it was customary for Trinity boys to have
rabbit feasts in their rooms at night. They indulged in this to such
an extent one winter season, that it became unsafe to leave a dressed
rabbit exposed, for some one would be sure to steal it. A party of
students caught a rabbit and left it in their room with the expectation
of banqueting on it that night. While they were out, much to their
chagrin a second party appropriated the rabbit, and the whetted
appetites of party No. 1 had to remain unsatiated. Means for revenge
were devised. They obtained a cat, dressed it, and left it in their
room, as they had left the rabbit before. Again party No. 2 stole the
game. They cooked it nicely and had a delicious feast. Believing they
had baffled party No. 1 a second time, they, to carry out the joke
more fully, returned the bones to said party. Thereupon, party No. 1
sent them the claws, hide and tail of the cat they had eaten. Shades
of departed cats! what a sick set they were! “Mew, mew,” was the only
sound heard about the college for two weeks.

_The Joke Turns._—An old student of Trinity once took a newy
snipe-hunting. After traveling about five miles from the village, he
left him to hold the bag (into which he would drive the snipes), with
the intention of returning to Trinity himself, and leaving the newy to
find his way home as best he could. Unfortunately for the old student,
he missed the road and finally wandered back to the newy who by that
time suspected the joke, and found out also that the old student had
lost his way. He accordingly compelled the would-be joker to pay him
one dollar to conduct him back to Trinity. Tradition says that student
never took another newy to hunt snipes.

_The Mutual Aid-the-Stuck-Society._—This was established for the
benefit of those boys whose conversational powers are soon exhausted,
and who become “stuck.” Each member was sworn to relieve any other
member who might be _stuck_ with a young lady on any public occasion,
such as commencement, Senior Presentation, at sociables, etc. It was
only necessary for him who was _stuck_ to wink at some brother member
and he would be immediately relieved.

Quite a number of new boys joined the society. On the first occasion
which presented itself for the practical operation of the society,
the founders engaged the company of ladies. Apparently they were soon
stuck. They gave the wink to their fellow members (the newies) who came
gallantly and promptly to their relief. By and by the newies became
stuck (really). In vain they winked. No one came to their rescue. The
society held no more meetings after this event.

_On the Wrong Scent._—Boys who boarded some little distance from
the village used to have a study room furnished them in the College
building. The one opposite Prof. Gannaway’s recitation-room was so
used. It was supplied with desks, and was often occupied by quite a
number. One day, when fun ran riot, the room was “packed,” and T. W. W.
climbed upon the top desk of the tower that had been built—presumably
to make a speech—but some one kicked out the corner-stone desk,
thereby precipitating a combined earthquake and thunder-clap. Prof.
G. came to the door, with his specs adjusted to fit the occasion, and
asked where that noise was. W. looked the Prof. right in the face and
said, “I saw some one run upstairs.” The Prof. started off to find the
offender, and everything was in order by the time he returned.

On another occasion, when the President was attending the session of
the General Conference, the bell-clapper was taken out and hidden,
all the gates were carried off, Frazier’s old mail-hack was taken off
and not found for several days. One day we wanted holiday, and asked
for it. Professor Wright, who was in charge and had been having the
bell rung for a week with a rock, told the boys in the chapel to bring
up the clapper, bring the gates, and he would grant their request.
So, while a class was reciting, a long, lank fellow, who had been
“snipe-hunting” a few nights before, came in with the clapper, the
gates were put up, the bell tapped three times (the summons to chapel)
and we assembled and had our request granted. These were pleasant days
for the boys.

The boy who was wallowed in the snow, between Charles Davis’s and
“Uncle” Jabez Leach’s, by his rival, is living in Trinity now.

_The Party._—It was in the winter of 1874 that I got up a party—a
sham party, but the boys thought it was real and were in for it. I
made out a long list of ladies and opposite their names were placed
the boys’ names, but showed this list only to the boys that were to
be victimized. It was a very cold night; the ground was frozen. Mr.
Coltrain’s house was selected as the place for the party. I got only
about ten boys in the trap. These were cautioned to keep it a secret.
About $3.50 was collected from them to get refreshments. They each
wrote notes to the ladies that had been selected for them, and they
like the boys were delighted and accepted. Scroggs and I were to go
with some ladies from the country. This was a blind, but at the proper
time we started. Some of the boys saw us off. There was a new path just
above Prof. Doub’s, about fifty yards from the street. This is the
way Scroggs and I went, and we lay down by an oak tree. By and by we
heard our boys with their girls, going to the party. I can hear those
merry voices now. When they passed, we went back to our rooms. I had
arranged for them all to meet at Mr. Coltrain’s at the same hour, and
so they did. Gray knocked at the door. There were no lights to be seen
anywhere. Still none suspected what was up. Presently Mr. C. came to
the door—he was dressed in white—“What is the matter?” Gray answered,
“Nothing, we have come to the party” “—What party?”—“J. said there
was to be a party here tonight and we were all invited.”—“I know
nothing about it. We are all in bed.” Gray and the rest of them
discovered my joke. After the boys had taken the ladies home, they came
to my room, and with the money I had collected from them I gave them
a royal treat to candy and cigars. O, the fun I had over the joke! I
venture Gray and Turner have not forgotten it to this day.

Examinations are here. Truly “man was made to mourn.”

It is reported that the Trinity Commercial Bank has “busted” again.
However, there have been no excursions to Canada yet.

The Trinity lawyers are having considerable practice now, in these
“evil days.”

“Benny” says he had a good time with his girl at Thomasville. He had
permission to go on business, and he went.

We have one Senior who—Well, we don’t know whether he will share his
commencement honors with some one else or not; but, if there is any
sign in noonday-dreams and long strolls, we th-th-think he w-will.

_Growth of a Big Book._—When Webster’s Unabridged was first published
in one volume, it was a comparatively small book. Some years after,
an addition was made of 1500 Pictorial Illustrations, A Table of
Synonyms, and an Appendix of New Words that had come into use. A few
years later came an entirely new revised edition of larger size, with
3000 Pictorial Illustrations; then, after an interval of a few years,
a Biographical Dictionary of nearly 10,000 Names, and a Supplement of
nearly 5000 New Words were added; and now there has come another new
and most valuable addition, A Gazetteer of the World, of over 25,000
Titles. The work is now not only _the best Dictionary_ of the words
of the language, but is a Biographical Dictionary, a Gazetteer of
the World, and a great many other good and useful things in its many
valuable Tables.

Mr. M. C. Thomas, of Cary, received the debater’s medal of the
Hesperian Society, and Mr. W. J. Helms of Poortith the debater’s medal
of the Columbian. Mr. W. B. Lee, of Durham, received the declaimer’s
medal of the Columbian, and Mr. J. R. McCrary the declaimer’s medal of
the Hesperian Society.

Messrs. G. T. Adams and E. L. Moffitt were elected President and
Vice-President of the Hesperian respectively, and Messrs. W. J. Helms
and W. H. Rhodes President and Vice-President of the Columbian Society
respectively for the 1st grade of the next College year.

Mr. C. Powell Karr, a graduate of School of Mines, Columbia College,
has in preparation a Manual of American Colleges, which proposes
to give in classified form all the leading Colleges, Universities,
Technical and Professional Schools, their requirements for admission,
courses of study, cost of tuition and living expenses, and in a word, a
systematic _resume_ of all the information needed by parents, guardians
and students to enable them to decide intelligently what college or
institution of learning it is best to attend. It is to be issued from
the press of William T. Comstock, New York.

Misses Edwards and Carr came home a few days ago afflicted with mumps.
We are glad to learn that they are now almost well. We hope that they
may so improve that by commencement “something sweet” will not hurt
their jaws.

_Robbed_.—Many of the boys and two or three members of the Faculty,
while at Guilford Battle Ground and on their return therefrom in May,
had their whole _hearts_ stolen. No public rewards have been offered
for the thieves, but we know not what private means have been employed
for their capture.

The last cold wet weather was good for the farmers’ patience, but bad
on their crops.

“Possum” no longer goes to Archdale by himself but carries a tall and
stalwart Junior along for protection against mud-holes.

THE ARCHIVE, under the management of Messrs. Nicholson and
Jones, has proved a financial success. Without the money subscribed by
the Societies, it has more than paid expenses.

The Business Managers intended to have THE ARCHIVE out for
Commencement, but the printers were so crowded as to be unable to
publish it sooner.

The party, on Thursday evening, was a fine success. If promenading be a
good exercise, surely none of the attendants on this occasion will have
need of more exercising before the next Commencement.

Teachers during vacation, farmers’ sons when work is slack on the farm,
and any others not fully and profitably employed, can learn something

Prof. Bandy is a whole-souled mathematician. He promised us a lecture
before commencement. If you have the blues or mental dyspepsy, come and

Prof. Price, who was graduated at Yale, and who afterwards spent two
years in France and Germany, and then served as tutor in Yale, was
recommended by the Faculty and elected by the Board of Trustees to take
charge of French and German. We welcome him to Trinity.

The medals and prizes were won as follows: Braxton Craven Medal, by W.
I. Cranford; the Wiley Gray, by George N. Raper; Pinnix Medal, by W. G.
Lee; Junior Prize (twenty-five dollars in books) by W. J. Helms; Senior
Prize in Politico-Socio Science, by George N. Raper.

We are glad to welcome back to Trinity, Prof. H. H. Williams who has
been elected to the Chair of Theology and Hebrew. The liberality of a
number of individuals, many of them ministers of the North Carolina
Conference, has enabled the Board to add at a late hour this much
needed Chair. It was possible to establish the other Chair (German and
French) by instituting strict economy, so that the expenses are not
increased beyond those of last year.


RESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT.

Whereas, Almighty God, in his all-wise providence, has seen fit to
remove from us by death, Mr. FLETCHER R. DEARMAN, a graduate
of this institution and long a faithful member of the Hesperian
Literary Society; and, whereas we desire to give expression to the
bereavement sustained in the loss of our brother, and to our esteem for
his many noble qualities of heart. Therefore, be it

_Resolved_ 1st, That we sincerely sympathize with the bereaved wife in
this time of sorrow, and would point her to the consolations offered in
the Gospel;

2nd, That we express our sense of loss in the death of Mr. Dearman, a
member loyal to the Society, to the College and to the State;

3rd, That our Hall be draped in mourning for thirty days, as a token of
our respect for the deceased.

4th, That copies of these resolutions be sent to the Raleigh _Christian
Advocate_, _Yadkin Valley News_, and TRINITY ARCHIVE for
publication; also a copy to the family of the deceased, and a copy
spread upon the minutes of our Society.
