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,

I can’t get ’em up, I can’t get ’em up,

You lazy, lazy Ashes.

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

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

.-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

to lend your mite? Did you not promise your
support to The Battalion in voting for its
•establishment and does not your support
cover something more than your subscription
fee? Shall we not have a magazine that reflects
something to our credit? Something that
will show the people of Texas that this is

We have received a copy of the “College
Reflector” (Miss. A. and M. C.) that has this

they expect to hear of the discovery of quite‘a
deal of mineral water in Texas soon. 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 pother organizations, will with
reasonable certainty be the same leader in
political, social and religious life after leaving
the university or college.—Enaicbsee.
