THE BATTALION. 15 EXCHANGE EEEARTMENT. the soho op the buqiih. As the chief of the barnyard flaps his wings, And greets the coming day, A bugler steps into the hall And then begins to p'ay. The new < adet in hir* e y bed, Dreams of his home and friends, Awakened by the silvery notes His fancy soars on wings. His dream is o‘er, he opens his eyes And sees the breaking day. The silvery notes so shrill and clear, . Form words and seem to say— * -K * : • ‘ r I can’t get.’em up, I can’t get ’em up, 1 can’t get ’em up right away. I can’t get ’em up, I can’t get ’em up, I can’t get ’em up to-day. •Get up, get up, and don your breeches, You lazy, lazy Ashes. Get up, get up, and don your breeches And go to rev-e-le. —An Ex-Fish. What Shall We Do. The members of the two societies J Austin •and Calliopean, have unanimously agreed to thave a paper as a means of stimulating liter ary work of the most practical nature and again for the purpose of showing “by our works” 'what we have at the old A. and M. I have given you the object of our undertaking. •Shall I give you our reasons? I hardly think it necessary. We certainly had reasons, and rgood ones too, for taking the task upon our- .-selves. No one criticises our action; no one doubts its commendability. Then, fellow 'Students, who is to reap the benefits of these literary efforts? The editors only ? Why not you?

Shall we not have a magazine that reflects something to our credit? Something that will show the people of Texas that this is something more than a military training school? We have a battalion well behaved and well drilled. Gentlemen of the corps, the success of our paper depends upon YOU; not your subscrip tion fee alone. Don’t show your selfishnes by withholding either. The “Enaicbsee,” hailing from the New Hampshire College of Agricultural and Me chanic Arts, is a neat; interesting magazine of some thirty pages. •Jjc- * * The Battalion, the literary organ from Col lege Station, is doubly welcome at the Insti tute for our girls have friends there.—Sherman Miscellany.

The foot-note reads as follows: Show that to Prof. C. and he will explain all. *- * * The college man who has no public spirit while in college very seldom acquires any. On the other hand the student who takes a kindly ' interest in class spirit, societies, college pub lications and 'other organizations, will with reasonable certainty be the same leader in political, social and religious life after leaving the university or college.—Enaicbsee. .4 3{' „ ♦ * The Battalion, hailing fiom the Agricutul- raland Mechanical College is anew exchange.
