the best of associations. Why not en- 
courage more such games as tend to 
keep the young folks at home with the 
"Old Folks," instead of allowing them 
to go to public places to seek the fun 
and good time they must have? If 
something enjoyable is provided it soon 
will tease to be by reason of "have to,' 1 
that they stay at home and become one 
of "like to." 



We notice that an unusuul interest is 
taken in lawn tennis. It is something 
new in the town, and only a few under- 
stand the game, and still fewer can play 
anything like a good game. It certain- 
ly bus many points in its favor as a 
game for exercise and pleasure that 
base ball does not have. It is a better 
game because it is not so rough, violent 
or dangerous. It, requires every bit of 
skill that base ball does and do.'; not 
exclude the ladies from sharing equally 
the honors and pleasures of the game. 
It is a better game from a social stand- 
point, and is much better morally, as it 
is a game that can be enjoyed by par- 
ents and children, neighbors and 
friends. They do not have to go from 
home to find their companions for the 



If field day should be a failure it will ' 
not be so for u lack of interest and en- 
thusiasm. Every student seems to 
have caught the fever and entered in- 
to the practicing of the various games 
with a vim and hearty goo 1 will, a 
spirit very essential to success in every- 
thing. While there are no athletes to 
be found among the students, yet there 
are a few whose record in tiie coming 
field exercises will lie suc.i that they 
need not be ashamed, especially con- 
sidering the opportunities they have 
for practice and the lack of any one to 
give them drill in gymnastic exercises. 
Tliis will be the first exercises of this 
kind by the students of the college. It 
will be the beginning of unnumbered 
Held days to come, the foundation up- 
on Which will rest the future success of 
athletic sports in Pacific College. As 
the patrons and students have worked 
to promote the moral and educational 
interests of the school, so let all these 
lend their aid in supporting this line of 
the work and not allow other institu-

tions to taki' the lead in athletics, un- 
til they have proved themselves able 
to drive ahead of Pacific College. 



It was with regret we heard that 
Prof, and Mrs. Hartley would not be 
witli us the coming year. Their time 
and energies will still be continued for 
Pacific College but in a different way. 
In place of being with us every day 
they will be far away helping to build 
up the interest for us in a different 
way. The three years they have spent 
here in school work will be a perio.l of 
which many pleasant recollections will 
come to the minds of those who have 
known them. The pleasant approval 
of the professor we will miss when in 
our work, or his hearty joke or tale of 
some past heroic act. The pleasant 
smile of Mrs. Hartley will be missed. 
W e regret to give them up, but the best 
thing for the school must be looked af- 
ter and not individual feeling,. The 
held they enter is one that but few 
others can fill. Their places here will 
be hard to fill as they filled them. 
The places they have gained in our 
hearts can never be taken by others, 
and as we shall have to say good bye, 
we thank you for the help you have 
given us in the past, and hope you 
may again be with us.

GEOMETRY. 

The April any xvns fading fast, 
As through a city street there passed 
A school-girl, claspiug in her arm 
V hook inscribed with mystic charm, 

Geometry! 
Her eyes were dim with tears nnushed, 
Her cheek was pale, low hung her head. 
And doleful from her lips it sung, 
A word of sad and dismal tongue, 

Geometry I 
In happy homes with children bright. 
She saw no books disturb her sight; 
Before her eyes trapeziums shone, 
While from her lips escaped the moan, 

Geometry! 
The teacher passed tier on her '.vuy, 
And glanced around a word to say; 
"Study the Sun," lie sharply cried, 
But low that solemu voice replied, 

Geometry! 
"O, s'ay at home," the mother said, 
"And rest thy weary achiug head!" 
A tear stood in her languid eye, 
llut still she answered with a sign, 

Geometry! 
"Ho ware of hist iry's endless round, 
Beware PhonetirV jarring sound!" 
This was the sister's last good bye — 
Far down the stairs she heard the cry, 

Geometry! 
'I hey found her stretched 'mid hook-leav 
torn, 

Half buried in the chalk, next morn; 
Her hand still grasped as in a vice, 
Ihe cover with the strange device, 

Geometry ! 
There in the sunlight bright and warm, 
Was seen her fair and beauteous form; 
Her lips still murmured as she lay, 
And in her sleep she seemed to say,

ATTENTION. 

BY B. E. HOSKINS. 

The most important powers of the 
mind are imagination, memory, will 
and attention; of these, the three for- 
mer depend upon attention for their 
support, and particularly is this true 
with the memory, for it is impossible 
! to remember anything without special 
attention. At all times the things 
which attract our attention the most 
are the longest remembered. 

One of the most common causes of 
poor memory is the lack of attention, 
I and the best way to improve the mem- 
j ory is to cultivate attention. Accord- 
ing to Webster attention is the art of 
attending or heeding the energetic ap- 
plication of the mind to any object, 
whether sensiole or spiritual; earnest 
consideration, thought or regard, obe- 
dience, affectionate; to heed. Thus we 
see that all the functions of the mind 
depend upon it, and I think it is not 
an exaggeration to say that us a man 
acquires this faculty, so will be his suc- 
cess in whatever he undertakes, and 
particularly is this true in obtaining an 
education. The student who has best 
acquired the most desirable habits, is 
the one who will accomplish the best 
results, while the one who fails to ac- 
quire it, will go through college in a 
listless way, and miss the real object of 
college work, and will leave it before 
he has its course, or will pass through

THE CRESCENT. 



with results wholly unsatisfactory to 
himself as well us to his Instructors, 
and will enter his life work only to 
make a failure, simply because he has 
not learned the art of attention. In 
college he finds it hard to keep up with 
his work, for when there is instruction 
given in the way of a lecture, he is un- 
able to keep his mind upon the subject 
before him, however much he may de- 
sire to do so. Even in his study he has 
not acquired this habit, and when he 
would attend strictly to his lessons he 
cannot, for thoughts unbidden and un- 
welcomed will crowd themselves upon 
him, and he is not able to resist their 
encroachment. 

One of the first aims of the student 
should be to acquire the habit of atten- 
tion, for without it, it would be impos- 
sible for him to succeed. 

Strict attention is necessary in what- 
ever line of work we may choose, and 
the farmer or merchant who neglects 
his business, will just as surely fail, as 
will the painter who fails to mix his 
paint properly, or the sculptor who 
mars the statue he is forming. The 
man who centers his thought upon one 
thing and holds it there, regardless of 
his surroundings, will accomplish 
whatever he may undertake. 

Isaac Newton attributed all his suc- 
cess in life to the fact that he had mast- 
ered the art of attention. Not only 
was this so of Newton, but we rind 
that all the men who have accomplish- 
ed anything of note, have been men 



who were remarkable for their power of 
attention. 

Edison could never have accomplish- 
ed one half what he has in electricity, 
had he not early learned the art of at- 
tention. 

It was years of hard work and the 
most strict attention that enabled Pow- 
ell to transform the rude marble into 
the perfect goddess. 

Without this art, the countless writ- 
ers, whose names now crowd the pages 
of history, would never have Visen 
I above the common level of humanity. 



THE MODEL COLLEGE GIRL. 

BY K. M. I. 

This girl is pretty, but she don't 
know it. Prehaps not fine featured, 
but good looking, because she doesn't 
try to put on airs and look nicer than 
some one else. 

At home she rises early and helps 
lighten her mother's burdens by put- 
ting her room in order, and collecting 
! her books so that they will not be miss- 
ing when the bell rings. She is as 
careful of the wishes of her brothers 
and sisters as she is of sLrangers. 

She don't fret because she must 
study in the morning in order to be 
prepared for the first recitations. As 
she goes to school, no one can say she 
is impolite, for she bus a smile for each 
of her friends. No mental storm mars 
the pleasant countenace. 



THE CRESCENT. 



She has a greeting for her teacher 
and schoolmates, but does not make 
herself offensive by talking too much. 

She has "best friends" and loves 
them dearly, yet she does not give 
them her exclusive attention. If a 
girl in the Preparatory wishes to take 
a walk with her, she is not frowned up- 
on because the model girl would rather 
walk with her favorite. 

My girl doesn't write notesin school. 

She takes part in athletics that pleas- 
ure may be combined with the necssary 
exercise. 

My ideal is very proud when the 
boys of her school win a game of ball, 
or gain a medal. Who would not? 
And when they fail, it wasn't because | 
the other side had superior talent. 

She is very proud of every depart- 
ment of college work, and strives for 
its succtss with all her might. 

My girl belongs to the literary soci- 
ty and takes an active part; never has 
to pay fines for non-performance of 
duty, or refuses to write an essay. 

She dismisses her company at eleven 
o'clock, because her studies demand 
her attention. 

Oh no! she isn't an angel— fur from it. 
8he is a lively, mischievous girl who 
has all the honest fun there is to be 
had, and doesn't mind playing an in- 1 
nocent joke on a classmate. 

Not too grave to bo lively, 

Not too prim to be gay: 
Not too restless to study, 

Not too sober to play.

EDUCATION AND CRIME. 

BY W. T. HARRIS, Hi 1>. 
Portion of an Address before the National 
Prison Congress, at Cincinnati. Sept. 2!>. 

The relation of education to crime 
has been often canvassed. It has been 
asserted that as education increases 
crime increases in equal or greater ratio. 
The inference left for us to draw from 
this is that education in the school pro- 
duces more intellectand not a sufficien- 
cy of moral restraining force to prevent 
crime. An examination of the crimi- 
nals in one of the states shows TO per 
cent, who can read and write, and only 
;;<) per cent, who are illiterate. It

THE CRESCENT. 



seems, therefore, that our schools fur- 
nish the great majority of our crimi- 
nals. But, the exact influence of educa- 
tion on crime is not shown by the 
figures presented, for the reason that 
nothing is said of the ratio of illiterate; 
to those who can rend and write in the 
state whose criminals have been inves- 
tigated. 

The state mentioned was found to 
have, in 1SS0, an illiterate population 
of less than five per cent. The ques- 
tion of education and crime now stated, 
in view of the statistics, read.-, different- 
ly. SeaetUji pur mat. of the pupulalitm in 
the jails hare been fiirnirhcil htf Ilia D5 per 
cviif. who can write, while 30 per mil hare 
be»n furnished Uy the 5 per cent mtia are 
illiterate. This would give us eight 
times as many criminals from each 
thousand of illiterates as from a thous- 
and not illiterate. Certainly the sta- 
tistics thus examined arc not unfavor- 
able to the schools. And this is the 
actual showing of the House of Correc- 
tion in Detroit, Mich., for the first 
twenty-live years of its existence: 
Forty thousand committed and 70 per 
cent, able to write, while 05 per cent, 
of the entire population can write, but 
there were 30 per cent, of illiterates 
sent thither from a population of which 
Less than 5 per cent, were illiterate. 

In 1870 an investigation of the rec- 
turns of seventeen states that keptare- 
ord of the educational status of their 
criminals showed nearly the same re- 
sults as those of the jail in Michigan; 



namely, eight times as many criminals 
from the illiterate stratum of the popu- 
lation, as from an equal number of the 
population who could mid and write.

ley, in the 1'lnciti.riuii, of Eurlham, en-

cheer.

of different characters. This is his
