Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ...the Midway Plaisance. Only a short while however, and all this was changed into a broad and quiet boulevard which is shown to the stranger who asks where the Midway was. And now it is time for the Senior to moralize, for to moralize is the special province of the Senior, to which he is entitled both by his position and by his aged youthfulness. The four years of study stretch out before the Freshman like the perspective of a railroad track over a prairie, the way unknown, the Senior Station far, far in the narrowing distance. But to the Senior, who from his station looks back over the road, his course seems short indeed, and many gayly decked milestones mark the way. Yet is our satisfaction as Seniors in accomplishment not unmixed with sorrow, sorrow for "the days that are no more," and we feel, in a degree the Freshman knows not of, a sincere regret for the bright past when we stand up in the presence of faculty and students, and a well known voice proclaims before the peoples: "in cujus rei testimonium haec diplomata vobis trado." Only the Senior can detect the strands of melancholy in the threads of the college student's life, but time brings the undergraduate as well to the perception of his fate, which the poetic truths of " The Pessimist" suggest; for the Freshman nowhere to come, but in, for the Senior " No where to go, but out."
