, School la over!
Those were the glad words on the
lips of all the students at Augustanaj
college yesterday afternoon at the
close of the day's session. Yesterday
was the last day of the fall term. The
Christmas holidays will last until Jan.
5, when the spring term opens.
The past week has been a strenuous
one for the "stoodes," most of the time
having been devoted to final "exams"
in the various subjects. With all the
"plugging" and "cramming" over,
thoughts of home and Christmas-tide
caused them to almost bubble over
with joy. Last night was a time for
celebration. Two students' idea of
celebrating the close of school was to
heave their sofa out of a second story
window in the dormitory to the ground
beneath. Wash bowls and mirrors
also found their way out of the dormi
Lively Semen at Depot m.
The scenes at the various depots
last night were lively in the extreme.
Almost every depot In the two cities
was crowded with students anxious to
board their trains for home. Shouts,
laughter and college yells formed a
pleasant medley to, the students. To J
those not accustomed to students' feel
ings, their actions would, seem queer,
if not ludicrous. The sight of two
younpmen hugging each other caused
onlookers to smile. But the actions of
the girls seemed even more affecting,
considering the fact that they were
only parting for three weeks.
"Good-bye, chummie!" cried one fair
"Good-bye, dearie!" came from her
equally fair companion, 'and they bur

. "You won't forget to write?"
"No, no; and you?"

you, you dear little thing?"
'- "Don't forget that pennant you prom
s"No, indeed; and you that pillow!"
Then the fur demonstration was en
acted for the fourth consecutive time,
and other secrets of less public na
ture were reviewed to strengthen their
memories. At last the train pulled in
talr tonight and Sunday; not much
eiinnge in temperature; the lon-eat tem
