Part of The State College cadet

r 100 THE CADET. he has the jury at his mercy. He will graduate at Ann Arbor in 1899 ; Q he will then begin the practice of law in Louisville, Ky. s I see Kerrick (who so distinguished himself as an astronomer during J; his stay in college) old and bald-headed and beginning to totter with the weight of many years, I can see him as he looks through that great telescope discovering new worlds and observing the movements of the Q heavenly bodies as they iiy through space. Kerriek soon after his grad- .f nation from college, and while yet a mere amateur_ astromoner, will i prove that the planet Mars is inhabited, by the invention of a telescope _ of such power that he can actually observe signs of human life on that planet. This will make him known to all the world, and he will after- wards be employed as chief astronomer in the Lick Observatory. _ Alford will enter Yale college, where he will become one of the greatest athletes of the world ; he will win the hundred yards dash in the Inter-Collegiate field day, and will afterwards be appointed as a representative of Yale College, in the international field day which will p be held at London, England, in 1900. 1 Davidson will be employed as chief engineer in the construction of a bridge across the Mississippi River. This bridge is to be one of the largest bridges of the world, it will eclipse the famous Brooklyn bridge. Soon after the completion of his bridge, he will marry a young lady _ that once attended school at State College, and will then go to the WVorlds Fair at Paris, France, on his bridal tour, where he will be rec- I ognized as one of the great engineers of the world. - Dunlap and Lyle will go into partnership and sell patent medicine, l Lyle will sing and dance, while Dunlap sells the medicine. Me thinks I can hear John Jehosefat Dunlaps melodious voice as it - rings out on Cheapside : Only one more bottle of the great lightning relief, it cures all pain ; apply immediately before and after; come - ` right along, gentlemen, only twenty-five cents a bottle." He then an- nounces to the crowd as they surge to and fro, " we will now have a song by Mr. Lyle." Mr. Lyle, face black and shining, banjo in hand, comes forth, and by his charming music and melodions voice sets the crowd to howling. Miss Duck will marry a Mr. Courtney of Chicago, a very wealthy I and iniinential man, she will be connected with the VVomans Aid and . Helping-Hand Society where she will be known to all the world by her I nume1ous donations and her kindness to the poor of that city. McDowell will be a great poet; his poems will be read and appre- ` ciated by all the world.
