deep, tortuous canyon cut ihrousrh
the rocky strata of Gienn mountain,
by a stream of pure water, having
- its source in springs scattered
through the highlands that rise a
thousand feet above Seneca Lake.
lt is broken in its descent, from sec
tion to section, into cascades and
pools of rare beauty. Rainbow
^Falls cannot be described, the sun
shining through the mist of the
sparkling water, producing miriads
of rainbows. Money has not been
spared to add to the wonders of na
ture. The genius of man is here
illustrated in the hundreds of stone
steps that enable the sightseer to
ascend and desend, for hundreds of
feet, with less fatigue or danger,
and the wonderful suspension, and
'?other bridges certainly prove the
genius of man.
I would like for the readers now
to imagine themselves with me as I
am comfortably seated in a grand
?touring car viewing the picturesque
panorama. For thirty miles or over
are splendid automobile roads back
to the beautiful campus of Cornell.
We will now attempt a description
of the three large buildings used as
Sormitories. Cascadilla is a splen
did, substantial structure, where
Goldsmith resided, who was Cor
nell'* first proof in English history.
He left comfort and high position
?""in England io come to Cornell at
its beginning. D. White Servey,
f as first president. His home is still
os the campus.
Prudence Risley Hall, the new
dormitory, could not be described.
In grandeur, it resembles an im
mense tourist hotel with every mod
ern improvement. They have their
own electric plant. The cooking,
laundry, sweeping, etc., is done by
electricity. It would be folly to at
tempt to describe the artistic part
of this building. The pictures are
real studies, being copies of the
most renowned paintings of the
world. Under each picture is a
gilt frame containing the facts of
interest pertaining to the picture
above, and they have some wonder
ful sculpture. The whole lower
floor is devoted to parlors, reception
halls, libraries and dining room.
The upper floors are handsomely
. furnished. The bed rooms, each
having a private shower bath.
Sage College, the other dormitory
for women, is more conveniently lo
cated to the auditorium, etc. The
.Bailey Auditorium, named in honor
of one long director of the Agricul
tural College. The seats (two thou
sand and over) are crowded on ev
ery occasion. There is now being
completed an auditorium which will
seat ten thousand. This is in the
new Armory building. In the Bail
ey auditorium is a twenty-five thou
sand dollar pipe organ, one of the
most magnificent instruments in the
U. S. It was recently presented
the University by Andrew Carnagie
An attempt to describe the musical
recitals given by Mr. Jas. Quarles,
pipe organ professor at Cornell, and
Proffessor E. R. Kroger, would be
folly, for only hearing is believing
it possible for human fingers, on an
instrument invented by human
minds, to produce such Heavenly
^strains of music.
At one of Prof. Kr?gers' recitals,
he played a Diece called "Chimes."
The sweet toned bells, as soft as
Swiss bells, soun.ied from the ro
tunda as if the music was cheiubs
of a Heavenly choir.
j .The next day, during our re -ita
tion, one in tile class asked Prof.
Kroger if he did not believe it re
l quired inspiration to play as he did?
k|Vi.th a smiling face like a ray of
Sunshine, his reply was. "Not so
ftnuch inspiration as perservation,"
JPwhich had made it possible for him
to accomplish the following: At
the age of 23 he entered upon his
career, and since that time has been
^before the public, as composer, or
ganist, teacher, conductor, editor,
lecturer and writer upon musical
topics. He has been President of
The Teacher's National Association
and also President of the Missouri
Musical Teachers' Association. He
^was appointed Master of Programs
on the Bureau of Music at the St.
?*}*>uis World's Fair. For his work
there, he was elected an officer to
the French Academy. Was recent
ly elected a member of the National
Institute of Art and Letters. Was
Director of the College of Music at
'Forest Park University and Direc
tor and Business Manager of the
Kroger School of Music at St.
Louis. Organist of the Church of
the Messiah of the same city.
Ic 1916 was Adjudicator of the
Welch Eisteddfod at Canton, 0.,

Eisteddfod at San Francisco. In,

The willow loves the stream;
The child will love his mother's nairn
The dreamer loves his dream.

As the good name Cornell.
We'll honor thee Cornell,
We'll honor thee Cornell;
While breezes blow and waters flow
We'll honor thee Cornell.
The soldier with sword of might,

May deeply carve his name.

There shall unsullied dwell;
While of this world they are a part
