R amsltilll lll il
small Ramsey Milhoiland Is watch
ing the "Decoration Day Parade"
ini the home towni. The old -gentle
man, a veteran of the Clvil war,
endeavors to impressO5 the young
ster with the significance of the
great conflIct, and many years aft
erward the boy was to remomber
his words with startling vividness.
In the schoolroom, a few years
afterward, Ramsey is not distin
guished for remiarknie ability,
though his pronounced dislikes are
arithmetic, "RecItations" and Ger
man. In sharp contrast to Ram
sey's backwardness is the precocity
of little Dora Yocum, a young lady
whom In his bitterness he denomi
nateof "Treacher's Pet." In high
school, where he and Dora are
classmates, Ramsey continues to
feel that the girl delights to mani
fest her superiority, and the vin
dictiveness he generates becomes,
alarming, culminating in the reso
lution that some day he will
"show" her. At a class picnic Ram
sey is captured bag and baggage
by Milla Rust, the class beauty,
and endures the agonies of his first
love. Ramsey's parents object to
Milla and wish he'd taken up with
Dora Yocum. Ramsey kisses Milla.
Then Milla suddenly leaves town.
She marries. Ramsey enters the
state universitr and there is Dora
Yocum again. Ramsey meets Dora
in a World War debate and is in
gloriously vanquished. Ramsey
gives Linki "a peach of a punch
on the snoot"-Why%
"WMell, I'm glad you gave that Lnski
a fine little punch, Brother Miihoi
land," he said at the door, "It won't
do you any harm in the 'frat,' or with
the Lumen, eithe'r. And dlon't be dis
couraged about your debating. You'll
learn. Anybody might have got rat
tIed by having to argue against as
clever and good-looking a girl as that !"
The roominutes gave each other a
look of serious puz'zlemnent ats thie door

gamsey assented, anr then, as the
two prepared for bed, they entered in
to a further d nscuisei of their senior
friend. They liked him "all right,"
nthey said, but lhe certainly must

see how he had "evor managed to get

Ramsey was willing.
After the strain of the "miid-year
Exams" in February, the chums lived
a free-hearted life. They had settled
Into the ways of their world ; they had
grown used to it, and It had grown
used to them ; there was no longer any
ignominy in being a freshman. They
romped upon the catupus and seine
times rioted harmlessly about the
streets of the town. In the evenings
they visited their fellows and brethren
and were visited in turn ; horseplay
prevailed, but collegiate gossip had its
turn, and sometimes they looked so
far ahead as to talk vaguely of their
plans for professions or business
though to a freshman this concerned
an almost unthinkably distant pros
pect. "I guess I'll go in with my fa
ther, in the wholesale drug business,"
said Fred. "My married brother ni
ready is in the firm, and I Suppose
they'll give me a show--send me out
on the road a year or two first, maybe,
to try me. - Then I'm going to marry
some little cutie and settle flown.
What you goin' to do, Iamsey? Go to
law school, and then come back and
go in your t'ather's office?"
"I don't know. Guess so."
It was always Fred who did most of
the talking; Itamsey was quiet. Fred
told the "frat seniors" that Ramsey
was "developing a whole lot these
lays ;" and he told Itamsey hinself
that he could see a "big change" in
